The return of the cicada

cicadaThere are signs to indicate the times. The return of the 17 year cycle cicada in the United States in 2021 is a very important one!  The biblical word for cicada is “locust,” which goes back to the Hebrew prime root word, rabah, meaning increase, gather, store. The 17 year cicada is coming up out of the ground, as Joseph, who being 17 years of age, came up out of the ground, retrieved from the pit in which his brothers threw him, entering Egypt, symbolizing the World, where he would gather and store the increase of corn for the coming famine, the corn symbolizing the spiritual word of God, for which there is now a growing hunger, as was written by the prophet Amos: “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the the words of the Lord.”  8:11.  The masses have been hearing the words of the Lord, but not through the orator of spiritual truth.  The only perspective with regard to the literal Word of God has been a religious one, which was established 17 hundred years ago by the Council of Nicea; a group of political and religious leaders that formed a government-sanctioned religion for the people to follow.

“Joseph, a parallel to Jesus— hated by his biological brothers, as Jesus was hated by his religious brothers. He was falsely accused and thrown into prison, as was Jesus. But in the end, both would bring salvation to the people. Joseph dwelt with his Hebrew brothers in the land of Canaan, as Jesus dwelt among his Jewish brothers in the land of Judea. And both entered Egypt in order to preserve their lives.” -THE BIBLE DECODED

Like the cicada, which disappears for 17 years, Jesus disappears from scripture between the ages of 13 and 30— for 17 years, spending time in that spiritual ground called the heart.  And what Jesus gave the World was spiritual corn; spiritual truth, the literal Word of God written in a symbolic language, which has preserved and protected this spiritual knowledge for over thirty-five hundred years.  It is a language that is foreign to the religious ear, which is why Joseph’s brothers did not understand his language, and why the multitudes did not understand Jesus’ parables.  When the famine waxed sore in all the land, the brothers of Joseph went down into Egypt to buy corn (Genesis 42:1,2), as many of those that proclaim to be God’s people will “buy in” to the spiritual knowledge and understanding that is appearing after 17 hundred years, which their religion has deprived them of, as was written by the prophet Hosea: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge,” referring to destruction on a spiritual level.  To preserve their spiritual life, they, like the brothers of Joseph, will have to eat of the spiritual corn, which is to accept this spiritual truth into their heart through spiritual obedience.  When Jesus said “believe the works” (John 10:38) he was referring to ones obedience to the spiritual works through which one obtains spiritual life, which is salvation of the soul.

The Bible takes place within us:

When I left behind what was quickly becoming a religious mindset back in 1997, it was said that I had gone into the World.  Yes, I had gone into Egypt, after being thrown into a metaphorical pit by the rejection of those I once considered friends (Zechariah 13:6).  Like Joseph, who spent time in prison, I spent time in solitude, quieting my mind, the spiritual or symbolic meaning of  “silence in heaven,” through which I too came in contact with the baker and the butler, symbolizing the spirit and the word of God, also symbolized by the “two olive trees” or “two olive branches” (Zechariah 4:11-14), the olive pressed to make the oil used in physical anointing.  But it is only through the spiritual anointing of God’s holy spirit, which delivers the word of truth to our heart that we gain spiritual life through the removal of the spiritual flesh formed by our false religious and personal beliefs, as the cicada sheds its skin.  Once free of its skin, the wings of the cicada are given power. It is time to shed our coat of skin, thereby restoring the spiritual power through which we are made free mentally, emotionally, and physically, which is salvation of the soul.

The return of the 17 year cycle cicada is a sign, one that points to the return of spiritual truth, which has been buried; hidden from the masses for 17 hundred years.

Godspeed

Cancer: spiritual cause and cure

Definition of cancer: 

An abnormal growth of cells which tend to proliferate in an uncontrolled way and, in some cases, to metastasize (spread). Cancer is a group of more than 100 different and distinctive diseases and can involve any tissue of the body and have many different forms in each body area. 

“If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.” Exodus 15:26

Moses is speaking to the children of Israel (chosen to represent us the people), who have failed to put their trust in Moses, symbolizing the Spirit of God. “Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.” Acts 7:51. If we the people would have given ear (obeyed) the commandments, which contain the statutes, we would not be plagued with these diseases. But we should not look at it as if God is putting these diseases upon us, but rather that we are bringing these diseases upon ourselves through our own disobedience.  Egypt symbolizes the World, the Egyptians the people of the World.

When the children of Israel disobeyed the 10 commandments they were given the 613 commandments (Mitzvot), the 10 contained in the 613, which is found in the math: 6+1+3 = 10.  Disobeying the 10, which are spiritual commandments, gives power to the negative and destructive energy that causes these diseases. To prevent this destructive spiritual (mental and emotional) energy from moving into the body will require a remission: a lessening in the degree or intensity of this unhealthy energy.

“The body’s ability to materialize the negative and destructive energy of the soul in the form of disease is a demonstration of God’s love and compassion. Cancer is sin materialized; one eating away at our physical life as the other eats away at our spiritual life. It is no coincidence that laser light is being used in the treatment of cancer, as the word laser is compared with lazar, one afflicted with disease, from Lazarus.  Physical light has the power to restore the body, but the spiritual light of truth has the power to restore the body and the soul. The light of truth puts sin in remission by transforming its negative and destructive energy. Now positive energy, it moves out, healing the body by changing its chemical composition, changing the physiology of our organs, tissues, cells, etc. Disease is the result of a separation from God, a departure from God’s spiritual Law.” -THE BIBLE DECODED

“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”  Acts 2:38.  In the previous carnal “era of Isaac” being physically baptized in the physical name was enough to bring on the remission of sin; the source of the negative and destructive energy that causes cancer, and all the other diseases of the body.  But we are now in the spiritual “era of Jacob” in which a spiritual immersion in the spiritual name is needed for the remission of sin.  The spiritual name that we are to be immersed in is truth, as Jesus said, “I came in my Father’s name,” meaning he came “in the name” (on behalf/for the sake) of truth.  When tempted by the Pharisees as to which was the greatest commandment, Jesus brought them down to 1, found in the math, by adding the numbers: 6+1+3 = 10 = 1+0 = 1. That one law is Love. “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” Matthew 22:37, 39.  Love has no power until it is directed toward someone or something. How do we demonstrate our Love for God?  The same way God demonstrated His Love for us, through Jesus, the truth personified.  For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me…”  God’s Love has a condition, which is our love of truth!  If we break one commandment we are guilty of breaking them all.  It is also true that if we keep the one, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me,” we keep them all, as these “other gods” symbolize the “false beliefs” that only truth can overturn, which Jesus illustrated for us in the temple, symbolizing the heart, where we have set up these false gods, worshipping them through our belief in them.  We keep God’s one spiritual Law, demonstrating our love for God, ourselves, and each other through our “love of truth,” the “spirit of truth” that will guide us into all truth (about ourselves) when we stop resisting the holy spirit that delivers the gift of truth— the spiritual light that is needed to transform the negative and destructive energy of our false beliefs into positive and creative energy.   

False beliefs are the spiritual cause of cancer.  Truth is the spiritual cure. 

Jesus exposes Paul: Truth exposes the Liar

paul-saul-tarsus“Our lord and prophet, who has sent us, declared to us that the Evil One, having disputed with him for forty days, but failing to prevail against him, promised that he would send Apostles from among his subjects to deceive them. Therefore, above all, remember to shun any apostle, teacher or prophet who does not accurately compare his teachings with James…the brother of our Lord…and this, even if he comes to you with recommendations.” (Homilies of Clement 11.35).  Peter, the rock (the teachings) upon which the spiritual church is built, was told by Jesus that there would be Apostles that would come and destroy his teachings.   “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Matthew 16:18.  While Paul understands this spiritual concept, saying that the Most High does not dwell in temples made with hands, he will form his own doctrine from the knowledge of the ancient sacred texts, which being the son of a Pharisee, and a Pharisee himself, he would have had access to, building a foundation of sand through his false teachings, upon which the physical churches will be built.  Jesus had only three years to deliver his teachings, followed by the Apostle that would pervert those teachings. The perversion of Jesus’ teachings began in the city of Ephesus, where Christianity was introduced by Apostle Paul in the 1st century AD.   “Pauline Christianity” that is. 

The LIE Paul told to the disciples of John in Ephesus:  “And it happened, while Apollos was in Corinth, Paul, having passed through the upper parts came to Ephesus: and having found Some disciples, he said to them, “Have you received the holy Spirit since you believed?”  And they said to him, “We have not even heard whether there be any holy Spirit”  Acts 19:1,2 (Diaglott).  Paul tells them that John told the people that they should believe on him that was to come after, and be baptized in the name, Jesus.  Paul’s teachings on what it means to believe is not what Jesus taught.  Paul taught the people that they were to believe in Jesus the man, while the man Jesus drew the attention off of himself and onto the works, which is spoke of and illustrated for us while he was on this earth; the same works as his Father, which was the works of creation, God’s physical creation a pattern or figure for the spiritual creation that is to take place within us, saying, “though you believe not me, believe the works.” John 10:38.  Jesus was not about ego. He did not care if the people followed or believed in him.  He desired for them to believe the works, through which they would be healed, the word believe meaning to obey or put action to.  Paul however was all about ego, stepping outside of his calling, going beyond what he was chosen to do, which was to mention the name of Jesus among those of politics and religion, which would have led them to the twelve that Jesus chose to disseminate his teachings.  Paul’s ego had him going throughout the land, gathering a following, feeding the people with his own doctrine of lies, which he spread throughout Asia, if not in person, then through his letters (epistles).  So now we know why the council of Nicaea of 325 AD (made up of political and religious leaders) scrapped so much of Jesus’ teachings and kept Paul’s.  Yes, they were to be baptized in the name of Jesus.  This much is true.  “Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost (KJV).  Original translation: “And Peter said to them; Reform, and let each of you be immersed in the name of Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit ” Acts 2:38 (Diaglott). 

The LIE Paul told the disciples of John in Ephesus was that they would receive the Holy Spirit following their immersion. It was not the Holy Spirit that they would receive, but the gift of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is what delivers the gift, which Paul clearly did not understand, and never received. If he had received the gift of God he would have never negated the works of the carnal law, which are a pattern or figure for the (spiritual or internal) works that we are to believe (obey).  “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. Not of works… “  A perfect example of Paul’s perversion of truth. The truth is, we receive salvation through the works we perform in the period of grace.  Salvation is not a gift: something that is bestowed voluntarily and without compensation.  Salvation is a reward: a consequence that happens to someone as a result of worthy or unworthy behavior.  Salvation is the reward for good works; spiritual works.  What is a gift is the spiritual power through which we do these spiritual works.  

Paul perverted the truth pertaining to the two things needed for salvation/creation, which is the Spirit (Genesis 1:2) and the word (Genesis 1:3); God’s word being the works of creation.  Jesus had only three years to spread his soul-saving doctrine, which was quickly replaced with Paul’s soul-destroying doctrine. To expose the lies in Apostle Paul’s doctrine, and all the doctrines that have been built upon it, we have been given the revelation, which John received of Jesus near the end of the 1st century AD. The first six churches reveal our six (metaphorical) days of (spiritual) works, the seventh a message of instruction for those that have unwittingly skipped over these spiritual works because they have chosen the doctrine of Paul over the doctrine of Jesus.  The first four churches are the works of tearing down the false religious image or doctrine, which has taken on many forms since its inception.  The word “Paul” means “come to an end.”  It is Paul’s false salvation-doctrine that is to come to and end within, along with the ego sustaining it. 

“Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write… I know thy works, and thy labor, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars.”

Virus: spiritual cause and cure

Definition of Virus:

1. Any of various submicroscopic agents that infect living organisms, often causing disease, and that consist of a single or double strand of RNA or DNA surrounded by a protein coat, Unable to replicate without a host cell, viruses are typically not considered living organisms. b. a disease caused by a virus. 2.A computer program or series of commands that can replicate itself and the spreads by inserting copies of itself into other files or programs which users later transfer to other computers. Viruses usually have a harmful effect, as in erasing all the data on the disk. 3. A harmful or destructive influence.

In the year 2000 the world entered the third and final era of Jacob, which translates to the era of Spirit. A time of transition from carnal to spiritual, when that which is spiritual is being manifested in the physical, world-wide. The physical sign that stands before us now is “the virus,” the physical manifestation of “man’s iniquity,” symbolized in scripture by “the leaven,” which spreads throughout the whole lump of dough.  “Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. The leaven or iniquity was in those of Religion, as it is today.  “Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.” Isaiah 1:13,14.  The leaven of Christianity is the iniquitous doctrine it espouses; Pauline Christianity or Pauline theology, otherwise referred to as Gentile Christianity, which in my opinion, is the greatest “religious” source of iniquity today.  Paul was chosen Apostle to the Gentiles: the twelve Jesus chose were Apostles to the Jews. Jesus said, Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.” John 4:22.  Christians have no idea what they are worshipping. It is not the word of God.  As iniquity is in that body called the church, so is in the body of every individual in the form of the lies we tell ourselves every day, both on a conscious and sub-conscious level. The twelve that Jesus chose represent the body. One of the members of that body was Judas.  “Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity…”  Judas betrayed Jesus. Iniquity betrays the truth that is trying to live in our heart. “For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take… And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen… And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.”  What is to take the place of our iniquity is found in the meaning of the word “Matthias,” which means “gift of God.”  Paul teaches that the “gift” is the Spirit of God, which is iniquity. The gift of God is not the Spirit, but what the Spirit delivers, which is the word or seed of God, which is truth. 

Iniquity is the spiritual cause of the virus. Truth is the spiritual cure. 

The iniquity & confusion regarding Jesus’ return

…and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  Matthew 24:30

This is a spiritual event, which takes place immediately after our tribulation or personal time of trouble, upon the spiritual darkening of our symbolic sun and the moon, taking place inthe clouds of heaven, symbolizing the thoughts of the mind.

And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up: and a cloud received him out of their sight.   Acts 1:9

Jesus was taken up, a cloud receiving him out of their sight, meaning, they did not see him taken.

And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;   Acts 1:10

The two men in white apparel symbolize the two witnesses, who in that day were John the Baptist and Jesus the Christ; the embodiments of God’s Spirit and Word of God; the “spirit of truth,” which has come to guide the men of Galilee into the truth regarding Jesus’ return. 

Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.  Acts 1:11

If the men of Galilee were doing right by gazing up into heaven, what need would there have been for the two men to question it?  The two witnesses of God have come to correct their thinking, to stop the iniquity regarding a physical return of Jesus, who will come in the same manner as he left, out of their sight, a return not seen!

There will be no physical return of Jesus. His second coming took place two thousand years ago, his first being his birth. The third coming is spiritual, coinciding with the third spiritual era of Jacob, in which Jesus returns to the individual, in the spiritual form of truth returning to his heart.  THE BIBLE DECODED; “Babylon”

United States Flag: Symbolism

flag_eagle_header-smThe eagle symbolizes the presence of God.
Red symbolizes the Spirit of God— Love.
White symbolizes the Word of God—Truth.
Love and Truth is the presence of God.

Blue symbolizes the peeling off process that makes us free, like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon. The seven red stripes represent this spiritual process or metamorphosis. The number seven refers to the spiritual.  In Hebrew, the word “seven” means “to seven oneself, seven times” (7×7), which equals 49, the number of days between Passover and the day of Pentecost or Shabuoth. The new life we obtain through our one-time spiritual Passover and one-time spiritual day of Pentecost is 1 added to 49, bringing us to a spiritual measure of 50— to our spiritual Jubilee.

“Jubilee, among the ancient Jews, extraordinary Sabbatical year (following every seventh ordinary Sabbatical year) celebrated every 50th year. In the year of Jubilee, the land was completely left to rest. All debts were remitted; land that had been alienated was restored to it original owners; and all Jews, who, through poverty, had obliged to hire themselves out as servants, were released from bondage.”  (“Jubilee.” Funk and Wagnalls New Encyclopedia. 1986 ed.)

The fifty stars symbolize the freedom that is associated with the spiritual process that brings us out of spiritual and physical bondage. The process through which we are made free is encoded in the 49th chapter of Genesis.

The baker and the butler

“Joseph, like Jesus, was falsely accused and thrown into prison. It was in this solitude that Joseph came in contact with the baker and the butler, the baker symbolizing the spirit of God, and the butler symbolizing the word of God. Joseph became imbued with the spirit of God.   And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?  Genesis 41:38.   The spirit and word culminated in Joseph, as they would in Jesus. The word increases through the spirit, illustrated in the reinstating of the butler, while the spirit, having now become one with the word, decreases, as seen in the fate of the baker and John the Baptist.  Both Joseph and Jesus had the double-portion of spirit and truth, having completed the spiritual works, through which the spirit and word of God reached their highest degree.” THE BIBLE DECODED; “The Joseph Story”

What, exactly, is God’s Will?

What, exactly, is God’s Will?

Sandra’s response: God’s Will was and is Creation.  God used His Power to make the physical heaven and earth (Genesis 1).  Being made in the spiritual image of God we have the power to make a spiritual heaven and earth, which we have all done.  This creation is called “the first heaven and earth.”  But this heaven and earth was not God’s Will as it was not made in the light of truth, but in the darkness of naiveite.  We do God’s Will through the creation of  “a new heaven and a new earth,” through which our first heaven and earth passes away (Revelation 21).
