The Redemptive Work

A most unusual engagement occurred today with Malcolm (a man in white who serves as our heavenly Headmaster for CourtsNet). He also is a regular tutor to Stephanie and me. He appeared looking like we usually see him but beside him was someone whom we would call a ghost but mostly the skeleton of the person is what we saw.

Malcolm remarked, “What if I told you that lingering human spirits are way beyond your initial comprehension?”

We, of course, would absolutely believe that. The ghost we saw was basically just dry bones with a little bit of flesh on the bones.

Malcolm asked, “What are these dry bones?”

We were reminded of the story in Ezekiel 37 of the valley of dry bones. As we were pondering this, we were impressed to realize that as governing sons, we were in a positional place to minister to lingering human spirits (LHS’s) and call in their essence. We will discuss essence shortly.

Malcolm asked another question of us, “What are these dry bones? What did Ezekiel do?”

The dry bones in Ezekiel 37 were lingering human spirits. Stephanie remarked, “Wow. They were indeed LHSs, Ron.

Ezekiel 37:1-2

1 The hand of the LORD came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD, and set me down during the valley; and it was full of bones.

2 Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed, they were very dry.

In Matthew 12, Jesus said that when a spirit of a man goes out of the man it wanders around in dry places seeking rest.

In answer to Malcolm’s follow-up question of what Ezekiel did, let’s read the next few verses from Ezekiel 37:3-7:

3 And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So, I answered, “O Lord GOD, You know.”

4 Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! 5 Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: “Surely, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live.

6 I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the LORD.”’”

7 So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone.

Now, we know that LHS’s don’t put back on an earth suit, however, when we usher them into Heaven through the silver channel they are transitioning to their land of promise – not Israel, but Heaven.

Pay attention to verse 7:

7 So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone.

Now, exchange the word prophesied to “governed”.

7 So I governed as I was commanded; and as I governed, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone.

Prophecy is an expression of governing. Ezekiel governed the dry bones and commanded them to live. Instead of wandering endlessly in a dry place, Heaven has more in mind for them. Their destiny did not die when their body died.

Stephanie wondered why we would have a need to call in the stirring up of the dry bones.

Malcolm answered with a question, “Would you not say Ezekiel was calling in their very essence?”

Essence is the very nature of something that determines their character.

Ezekiel 37:8-14

8 Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them.

9 Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.’ ‘ “

10 So I prophesied (governed) as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army (Emphasis mine).

LHS’s are simply humans whose existence on earth in human form has ended. For many who died, they did not expect to die that day and finding themselves in a desert place, the are in-between time and eternity. They have yet to complete their transition to Heaven. They are in a place without hope. This is where governing sons can assist them to make their transition to Heaven. On their behalf, it is redemptive work we are doing. We are reconciling them to God. God, in His very nature has seen fit to offer a final opportunity to enter relationship with Him through repentance and calling upon the Father’s mercy. We get to assist in that process.

11 Then He said to me, "Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They indeed say, 'Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off!'

Invariably LHS’s will describe themselves as weary, without hope and abandoned. However, we have learned that their destiny is not over. They still have a destiny to fulfill from Heaven.

12 Therefore prophesy and say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel (our land of promise). (Emphasis added.)

The land of Israel is essentially our land of promise – which for us is Heaven.

13 Then you shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves.

14 I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the LORD, have spoken it and performed it," says the LORD.' "

Consider the millions of Jews that perished during the Holocaust and other mass murder events the Jews experienced. Would they not constitute a vast army? Helping them transition into Heaven would greatly please the Father.

Verses 13-14 are not so much about resurrection from the dead as they are about stepping into their destiny in their land of promise.

We asked, “What is pulling in their essence?” As LHS’s transition they become more like who they really are. Where they were weary and without hope, now they have the hope of the ages within them.

Stephanie asked to know the name of the ghost like figure knowing it had been an LHS. His appearance was simply a reference point for us.

Immediately she heard from the LHS, “Malcolm.”

Stephanie exclaimed in surprise to Malcolm.

We asked if Malcolm had once been a lingering human spirit. The ghost-like figure stepped into Malcolm again, and then out and exclaimed, “Surprise!”

We asked if he was one, we had assisted, and he assured us that he was. His story was that he had been lost at sea near Halifax, Nova Scotia. When I took a team to do LHS work in Nova Scotia a few years ago, he was one of the many thousands we assisted in their transition into Heaven. Nova Scotia has a website that includes listings of persons lost at sea. We were able to find a list of names and he helped us identify himself. We even found a couple of photographs of him that were confirmed to be the one we have known as Malcolm, our tutor.

Recomposing ourselves after that revelation. Malcolm explained, “Many are leery of LHS work that they are doing. I have my essence because of someone’s obedience to govern and because of that, I am whole.”

When he said that the LHS bone’s part walked back into him.

He continued, “So, continue to govern. If you can govern the earth in your positional seat, why could you not govern this?”

Malcolm added, “This will remove the fear, the uncertainty. People are oblivious to the knowledge that this is Kingdom work and I'm fulfilling a great part of my destiny because of obedience to this. Thank you, Ron. Tell them not to be afraid.”

Stephanie remarked, “This is back to the basics, isn't it Malcolm? Heaven keeps taking us back there because we have so many new people, but Heaven just wants them to remember. This is a remembering of why It's not just for their freedoms, it is the LHS’s freedom too. Some are so busy thinking, “Oh, this LHS is bothering me, but what you're showing us here is our capability, as governing sons, to be a part of their freedom. It is indeed God's work.

Malcolm responded, “Indeed.”

We thanked Malcolm for being such a help to us and he closed by saying, “I'm here because of love. You should not minister to those you don't love. This is a very act of love. Don't get weary in well doing. Remind them.”

Comprehending Essence

Stephanie questioned, “Malcolm, can you explain to us about essence? The first word I got was that it's like a substance. Colossians 2:17, ‘But it belongs to Christ who is the substance’.

Essence is a substance. When we ask for the ungodly spiritual debris, residue, and essences to be removed when we ask for the amendment as if it never were.”

Malcolm explained, “The essence is the substance of who you are. Christ in you becomes the substance of who you are. In doing LHS work, you are calling in the substance of who they are.”

Stephanie remarked, “I originally and initially felt the sense that we are also able, as we govern, to call in every bit of the essence of the LHS’s, even those that have been trafficked. Heaven just spoke that through me, they have been trafficked. Malcolm has reminded me of the engagement we had where we found a part of an LHS that had been on one of my territories. Malcolm, when we are doing LHS work, can we govern and call in their essence to be complete and whole before we send them through the silver channel?”

Malcolm replied, “Well, wouldn't that make sense?”

Stephanie added, “And he wasn't being condescending, yes, it makes sense, but why is it necessary?”

I asked, “Can we do it retroactively for all those we've already worked with?”

Malcolm said, “Consider it done because as children, you walked by faith and the rest was made complete.”

I asked, “Malcolm, what is essence referred to in the Bible? Is there a code for it?”

Malcolm asked, “Are you dealing with one's soul or are you dealing with one's spirit?”

I replied, “We're dealing with their spirit.”

Malcolm remarked, “Therein lies the truth. That is their essence. Who is Holy Spirit?”

Stephanie answered, “He's part of the trinity.”

Malcolm queried, “Would you not say He is the essence of the Father?”

Stephanie explained, “Essence is the intrinsic nature or indispensable quality of something, especially something abstract, (Oxford dictionary) which would be like what we think of as Holy Spirit that determines its character. And a similar part of what is in the definition is soul, spirit, ethos, nature.

Colossians 1:19 in the Remedy translation:

For it was God's pleasure to have his entire identity, character, the fullness of his essence lives in Christ.

Stephanie continued, “This says, The inherent unchanging nature of a thing, the most important part of or aspect of something.” That's in the Free That's the, the definition of essence.”

Look at that verse in the mirror. Colossians 1:19:

God is fully at home. In him Jesus exhibits God's happy delight to be human. Delight. The commentary is delightful. Intent. So spacious is he so roomy that everything of God finds its proper place in him without crowding.

Ephesians 2:15 in the Passion Translation:

Ethnic hatred has been dissolved by the crucifixion of his precious body on the cross. The legal code that stood condemning every one of us has now been repealed by his command. Triune essence has paid peace between us by starting over, forming one new race of humanity.

I remarked, “Malcolm, what you're speaking of is a person's essence. Colossians 1:19 in the Remedy describes that.”

Malcolm replied, “Yes. But I'm also speaking of the essence of the Father. That's how you're able to govern. You have the essence of the Father in you. His very essence. Why not reign with him?”

Stephanie reminisced, “I'm sitting here thinking about when I first read that years ago where Ezekiel was calling the dry bones in, the coming together as it did, as he saw it and was explained in scripture. I thought, ‘Wow, what an anointing. I could never achieve that. That's a false identity, isn't it?’

‘I come out of agreement with that false identity of, I could never do that, because indeed I am. I do this because of Christ in me, because of His essence in me. I'm fully capable as a ruling son to govern this way because of His essence in me. I'm calling in the essence of others for them to be free. Thank you, Father. Thank you, Jesus. It shifts my thinking. Even though I had a good perception of lingering human spirits. The thought of this makes it even more compelling to want to do it. In this, Ezekiel only did what the Father told him to do and you, Malcolm, are a result of what was done with what the Father had instructed around this teaching. This has given this a new life to it for me. I hope it does for the people.”

Malcolm replied, “It takes away the stigma and the fear around it, doesn't it?”

Stephanie remarked, “I would say yes.”

Malcolm added, “The very ones who help set free are free indeed. These become a part of the cloud of witnesses on behalf of the people. There is indeed more for you than against you, especially in this kind of work. I testify on your behalf of the goodness.”

Stephanie added, “And now I'm seeing a picture of millions of them. I can't identify their faces, but there's millions standing behind Malcolm in this moment.”

Malcolm replied, “And there will be millions more.”

Stephanie continued, “And all of them are bowing their knee to Jesus for what he did on the cross because it is the reason and the way. Millions of them. What a beautiful picture, Malcolm. Thank you. And now I see the picture of him as dry bones wearing Bermuda shorts stepping inside of himself. I am laughing because Malcolm has a great sense of humor. Wow.”


*Following the release of this blog post, we discovered that Malcolm McLean had served on the S.S. Curaco, that was impacted by the explosion in Halifax Harbor on December 6, 1917. He was listed as “lost at sea”, which is what he told us. His name is also listed on a memorial marker in the Fairview Lawn Cemetery in Halifax. I recall visiting that cemetery at least twice in my visits to Nova Scotia.
