The Principles of Creation
The Foundation of Spiritual Truth
Principle: a basic truth, which applies to both the physical and the spiritual.
Foundation: the basis on which a thing stands, is founded, or is supported.
The Bible begins with the physical creation and ends with the spiritual creation.
“In the beginning God created heaven and earth.” To create is to have the idea or concept of something. Nothing has been made yet. “And the earth was without form… ” To bring heaven and earth into existence would take two things: Spirit and word; Energy and seed. “ And the Spirit of God moved… “And God said…” Genesis 1:2,3. The Spirit of God is Energy. The word of God is the seed of God. Luke 8:11. These two divine attributes of the Creator and Creation are symbolized in scripture by the two witnesses, and the two olive trees or two olive branches, which Moses and Aaron, Joshua and Caleb, Elijah and Elisha, and John and Jesus, personified. “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:” Genesis 1:26. We were physically made after this likeness when our father, sowed his seed, by his energy (male) into our mother (female), as God, sowed His word, by His Spirit (male) into mother earth (female). We are spiritually made in the image of God when the the holy spirit sows the word of truth into our spiritual mother earth— our heart. We see the image of God in the Patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, representing the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. ELOHIM, the Hebrew name for God, also reveals God’s image: EL= God the Father. OH = the Son. IM = Holy Spirit; the I AM, revealing the Godhead, of which Christians lack understanding. Some Christians say there are three in the Godhead, other Christians say there is one, proclaiming Jesus is God. The truth is, the three are of one, as God, through His Spirit, spoke His word, and as man, through his energy, sows his seed.
“ In the beginning was the word, and the word was with the God, and a god was the word.” John 1:1 (Original Version)
“ In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1 (King James Version)
“A god was the word” has been changed to “the Word was God,” an error in translation that has Christians calling Jesus God, through which they are unwittingly denying the Son by omitting the spiritual works of God’s Word, which the Son finished, and which he instructed us to finish, saying, believe the works, the word believe meaning to obey or put action to. These are the works of a spiritual creation, which as gods, being made in the image of the God, we have the power to bring into existence. “ Is it not written in your law, I said, ye are gods. If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came… [why] say ye of him [Jesus] Thou blasphemest because I said, I am the Son of God.? If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not… thou you believe not me, believe the works…” John 10:34-38. The word of God is the seed of God. Having the word of God makes one a god, not God. If the seed of God is conceived in the heart one becomes a god, not God. In like manner, if the seed of man is conceived in the womb of a woman, that seed becomes a son or daughter, not the father that sowed it. Jesus is not God. From the above scripture we learn that having the word makes one a son, and that the son is synonymous with the works. We obtain the word of God by believing (obeying) the works of God. Christians have been lied to, being taught that Jesus did the works for them by dying on the cross. “Saved by the blood of Christ” they say, which is A LIE! Christians have been taught to believe in the man instead of being taught to believe the works through spiritual obedience. Blasphemy is to make oneself equal with God, or God’s power, which Jesus never did. Jesus never said he was God. It was the religious people of his day that falsely accused him of that. There are 220 verses referring to Jesus as the son of God, or son of man. There are 2 verses that religion uses to proclaim that Jesus is God. One, John 1:1, is a mistranslation. The other, “I and my Father are one,” John 10:30, a misunderstanding of what Jesus was really saying, which is that he and his Father are one with respect to the works of creation, as God’s physical creation is a figure or pattern for the spiritual creation that comes into existence within us when we finish the spiritual works that Jesus spoke of and illustrated for us while he was on this earth.
“ No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.” John 1:18. But Jesus was seen, being the seed or word of God made flesh. And as it is written, “all things were made by him…”John 1:1,3. All things are made by a seed. Jesus, the seed of God, said he proceeded and came from God. The seed proceeded from the the Father, sown into the womb of Mary. “neither came I of myself, but he sent me” John 8:42. Jesus did not come of himself. The seed does not sow itself. That will require the other divine attribute of God the Father, which is Spirit. Energy is needed to sow the seed, whether it be in the earth, or in the heart. There are two fathers, two seeds, two energies, and two creations. The good seed, sown through the holy spirit, is attributed to christ. The evil seed, sown through an unholy spirit, is attributed to antichrist. “… He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.” 1 John 2:22. One denies the Father and the Son literally by saying Jesus is God. One denies the Father and the Son spiritually by omitting the spiritual works that are synonymous with the Son, christ being the spiritual power through which one performs these spiritual or internal works. If you are rejecting the works because you have been taught that Jesus finished them for you, you are antichrist; against the power that is needed for your new spiritual creation to come into existence. “ Ye are of your father the devil… When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” John 8:44. Each of us acts as a spiritual father, having sown spiritual seed through spiritual energy into our spiritual mother. We have all eaten of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, sowing good and evil seed in that spiritual earth called the heart. In the process of time the evil seeds choked out the good seed, as we learn from Jesus’ parables. The creation that has been formed in us is called “the first heaven and earth,” which passes away upon the creation of “a new heaven and a new earth,” which requires six (metaphorical) days of (spiritual) works. “ And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and earth were passed away…” Revelation 21:1
These are the basic principles of creation, the foundation upon which all spiritual truth is built.
