THE SEVEN CHURCHES IN ASIA

download (1)

THE SEVEN CHURCHES mentioned in the beginning of the book of Revelation were churches founded upon Paul’s teachings. But they also pertain to the religions or religious beliefs that grew out of those teachings, which were formed between the middle of the first century up until the twenty-first century.  The number seven pertains to the spiritual. An angel is a messenger.  We are to hear the message of the churches. To hear is to believe, and to believe is to obey; to put action to these spiritual works.  

” 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… and for my name’s sake hast labored… Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou has left thy first love… repent and do the first works…” Revelation 2:1-5

The message of the first church is to begin the works of tearing down the false religious image or belief, which begins with identifying the lies in its doctrine, which is to labor for my name’s sake; for the sake of truth, the first love we left when we unwittingly bought into the religious lie.  Now we must repent, which is to think differently about the Word of God, and do the first works, which is to seek the spiritual truth of God’s Word, through which we overcome the religious iniquity.  Ephesus is the first church, representing mainstream Christianity, which is made up of three main religions: Catholic, Trinity, and Pentecost, which takes us from the middle of the first century to the beginning of the twentieth century, the Pentecostal theology dating back to 1905. All three mainstream Christian religions have been built upon the teachings of the apostle Paul; a doctrine of lies that will not stand in the face of truth.

“And unto the angel of the church in SMYRNA write…  I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews but are not, but are of the synagogue of Satan.  Fear none of those things which thou shall suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that you may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life… He that overcometh shall not be hurt by the second death.”  Revelation 2:8-11

The works are the labor they have put into seeking truth, their tribulation being the rejection they feel from those they once considered friends. Those who have discovered the lies or iniquity in the doctrines of religion, and who are now seeking truth, were poor, but are now becoming rich through the truth that is being revealed to them.  Those “which say they are Jews but are not” are (in the spiritual sense) those which say they believe but do not, because to believe is to put action to the spiritual works made known to us through these churches. The devil symbolizes the religious iniquity, which through their sincere desire to overcome, will cast some of them into prison, which is a good thing!  It was in the solitude of prison that Joseph became introspective, coming in contact with the baker and the butler, symbolizing the spirit and word of God. The ten days is not about a literal period of time, but about what occurs during this time, which is a change in the way we think about God’s Word. Those who stay faithful by completing the works of the first six churches experience “the second death;” a spiritual death, through which they will receive a crown of life; spiritual life.  Those “which say they are Jews but are not” are (in the literal sense) Messianic Jews.  They “are of the synagogue of Satan” because the carnal traditions they observe are being counted as iniquity, which Satan symbolizes (Isaiah 1:13). Messianic Judaism emerged in the 1960s, which combines Christianity with elements of Judaism and Jewish tradition. Jesus said, “salvation is of the Jews.”  However, both the Jews of Jesus’ time and the Messianic Jews of our time have rejected the salvation that comes with keeping the spiritual works that Messiah spoke of and demonstrated for us while he was on this earth. Jesus is referring to those who become spiritual Jews through a spiritual circumcision.  Messianic Jews “blasphemy” by proclaiming they are Jews before they have experienced the spiritual circumcision that would mark them as spiritual Jews. The tribulation is the time of trouble the prophet Daniel spoke of, which is already in progress.  Its purpose?  To bring on the spiritual birth.

“And to the angel of the church in PERGAMOS write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges. I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith… But I have a few things against thee, because thou has there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and commit fornication… To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it. ”  Revelation 2:12-17

The sword with two edges symbolizes the word of God, which being truth, exposes the iniquity found in the beliefs that are associated with the first four churches.  The work of this church is to hold fast to the name, which is to hold fast to the truth through which Satan, symbolizing the iniquity in the doctrine of Balaam, or the Church, is taken out of the way, which is a process.  Balac was the king of Moab, meaning inbred, referring to the inbred thoughts or iniquity of the false religious belief, the stumblingblock that was cast before the children of Israel; the children being those that are unskilled in the spiritual word or works of God, causing them to commit fornication. It is in overcoming the iniquity of this unholy intercourse that one eats of the hidden manna, receiving a white stone, symbolizing a righteous truth, through which one receives a new name, symbolizing a new truth, written upon the heart of the one doing the works. 

The Messianic Jews movement of the 60s was followed by the New Age Christian movement of the 70s and 80’s.  Many Christians who became disillusioned with mainstream Christianity got caught up in this movement, not aware that the doctrine was actually no different then the one they thought they left behind. It had just been cleverly repackaged in a new age wrapping by offering a spiritual or esoteric perspective on God’s Word. But the basic principles were the same. The term New Age can be applied to a range of religious and spiritual beliefs and practices that grew rapidly in the west during the 1970s.  The word Pergamos goes to the primary word pergos, meaning tower, as in the tower of Babel, meaning confusion, which has been carried over into the new age belief, causing them to fall prey to this new, yet old, religious belief, and to commit fornication. Fornication is intercourse, and spiritual intercourse is communication.  When we communicate these feel-good beliefs, which teach that we are already spirit and perfect, we just have to remember it, or that we can change our reality by changing our thoughts, we are committing spiritual fornication. The seeds being sown through this spiritual intercourse are not of the holy kind, as they do not produce spiritual life.  They prevent it!  Those who overcome any of the many false new age beliefs that are out there eat of the hidden manna, eating of the bread from heaven, the word bread meaning to overcome. 

“And unto the angel of the church in THYATIRA write; These things saith the Son of God… I know thy works…  Nothwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest  that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess to teach and seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols… Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.  And I will kill her children with death: and all the churches shall know that I am he that searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.  But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you non other burden. But that which ye have already, hold fast till I come.  And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received my Father. And I will give him the morning star.”   Revelation 2:18-28

Jezebel was the wife of Ahab, king of Israel.  A king symbolizes a spirit, and Israel symbolizes the Mind.  It was Jezebel and her husband that instituted the worship of Baal, god of the gods; the gods symbolizing the many false beliefs man gives reverence to.  It is the king of Israel or spirit of the Mind that empowers these beliefs, which have no power to heal or purify the heart. The spirit of the Mind is the ego, which like confusion, can be attributed to Paul.  Thyatira is an extension of the third church, having grown out of the New Age movement.  I would call this new movement one of Science and the Mind, which emerged between the 90s and the new millennium.  It took new scientific ideas of the revolution that occurred in the late seventeenth to eighteenth century and combined them with elements of the Christian religion of the west and elements of the traditions of the east, producing an amalgamated belief, like that of Christianity, the three main religions of which are symbolized by the gold, silver, and brass in the image associated with the king of Babylon, symbolizing the spirit of confusion.  Amalgamated: combined from two or more entities into one specific entity whilst retaining the defining characteristics of the original source.  Like the new age belief before it, which teaches that we are already in a spiritually perfect state, we just have to remember it, this new scientific belief teaches that the mind is the way to reach spiritual perfection, using the content of the scriptures to support the belief, such as the twelve tribes representing the twelve cranial nerves. Everything is possible through the power of the Mind. The original source of this belief is the same as the three that came before it, which is the mind-doctrine of Paul.  The nations are spiritual or internal nations, to be ruled with a rod of iron, symbolizing the power of the holy spirit. Like the vessels of a potter, symbolizing the false beliefs we have formed from within, they are destroyed by keeping the spiritual works unto the end, through which we receive the morning star, the name given to the sun, symbolizing truth.  

 

“And unto the angel of the church in SARDIS write … I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.  Be watchful and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.  Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent… He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life…”  Revelation 3:1-5

The fifth church.  Jesus came in the fifth; in the beginning of the fifth-thousandth year.  And what he taught was purification or salvation through the power of the Heart; through a spiritual judgment of what the twelve tribes of Israel represent according to Jesus and the Torah.  Jesus’ focus was on the condition and healing of the Heart, as was David’s, who was a man after God’s own Heart (1 Samuel 13:14).  They have a name when they reach Sardis, which is truth, having overcome the iniquity associated with the false religious belief, which they are now dead to, receiving a degree of spiritual life. They need to be watchful as they begin to look for their false self beliefs, which are ready to die, being strong in their determination to overcome them. The white raiment, which they receive by overcoming these false beliefs, symbolizes their spiritual wedding garment, evidence that they have been compliant with God’s purification process.  By replacing the false word that has been inscribed upon the tablets of their heart with the word of truth, they receive spiritual life, their names written in “the book of life.”

“And unto the angel of the church in PHILADELPHIA write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David… I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name… hold fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.”  Revelation 3:7-12

We are made holy through God’s spirit, and made true through God’s word, which we receive by doing the works of overcoming the false beliefs we accepted in our heart throughout our life.  The key of David is Love, the meaning of the word David. Love of truth. Desire directed toward seeking truth opens the door to our heart, bringing the light of truth that exposes the darkness formed by the many lies we spoke to ourselves in our mind. The crown symbolizes the power and authority that comes with receiving the word or seed of truth in that spiritual temple or earth called the heart, through which one becomes “a pillar” of righteousness.  These six churches represent our six days of spiritual works, which result in the creation of a new heaven and a new earth” (Revelation 21:1), symbolizing a new mind and a new heart, the new Jerusalem, symbolizing the new peaceful state we enter through a new truth, which is synonymous with the “new name.”

“And unto the angel of the church of LAODICIANS write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; … Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.  Revelation 3:14-18

The message of the angel of the seventh church is for those that have skipped over the works of the six churches. They are at the beginning of the creation of God, having six days of works to perform, through which they too will form a new heaven and earth from within. What they think they are in the  delusion of their mind is not what they are in the reality of their heart. The fire symbolizes the spiritual or internal judgment (Matthew 19:28), through which their heart will be made pure, the gold symbolizing purity, through which they will become spiritual rich— rich in spirit and in truth. The white raiment symbolizes the spiritual wedding garment one receives through the completion of his spiritual works. The eyesalve is truth, which through the power of the holy spirit, gives us the ability to see our life, which is transformed through the light of truth.

THE STICK OF JUDAH & JOSEPH

“Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into one stick: and they shall become one in thine hand… Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in my hand… Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them:… I will be their God, and they shall be my people.”  Ezekiel 37:16-27

It was Judah that prevailed above his brethren (1 Chron. 5:2), as it was the tribe of Judah that enlarged, seen in Judah’s first king, Rehoboam, meaning a people has enlarged, the tribes of Israel dispersed in 722. But it is not only the tribe of Judah that has enlarged, but the religious doctrine of a Gentile Judah. The first book of Kings reveals that Judah and Israel became as one (1 Kings 22:4); “… take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions. This Gentile Israel became Judah by accepting the Pentecostal “born again and saved” doctrine.  Judah proclaims to have the birthright, but God’s Word plainly tells us that the birthright was Joseph’s.” Let’s go back into biblical history and look at the relationship between Judah and Joseph. It was Judah, and his brothers (who later made up Israel) that threw Joseph in the pit.  It is the Christian religion that has thrown the spiritual teachings of Jesus in a metaphorical pit or prison. But when the famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt, symbolizing the World, the brothers are forced to go down into Egypt and humble themselves before Joseph, just as Joseph’s dream had predicted (Genesis 37:9,10).  The corn that Joseph stored up during the seven good years symbolizes spiritual truth; the spiritual seed or word of God, which will feed those that have been influenced by the doctrines of the Christian religion when they enter the spiritual famine of which Amos prophesied.  Fast forward some 2000 years to the Jews of Judaea (of Judah) and Jesus, the son of Joseph.  Jesus is allegory to Joseph as we see through their parallels.

“Both were hated by their brothers, Joseph by his biological brothers and Jesus by his religious brothers. Both were falsely accused and thrown into prison. Both entered Egypt in order to preserve their lives. And both would bring salvation to the people.”  –The Bible Decoded; “The Joseph Story”

Judah is companions with the children of Israel; the children symbolizing those that are unskilled. Religious Christians (Judah) are unskilled in the spiritual Word of God.  Joseph is with all the house of Israel. The house of Israel are the sons of Jacob, as Jacob was called Israel (Genesis 32:28). The sons of Jacob are the tribes of Israel (Genesis 49:28), the twelve tribes representing the spiritual judgment through which one obtains true salvation.  Judah thinks they are saved. But many of these religious Christians will come to know otherwise.  “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved,”  Jeremiah’s prophecies pertaining to Judah.  The stick of Judah is joined to the stick of Joseph when religious Christians renounce the carnal-minded teachings of Paul, and accept the spiritual teachings of Jesus, which is to eat of the corn.  ” I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in my hand… ”  Ephraim, in the literal sense, was the leading tribe of the northern kingdom, which was Israel.  Ephraim means double-fruit; what we think we are and what we truly are, the message of the seventh church (Revelation 3:17,18). “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked…  When Judah (Christians) come to understand that they are not what they thought they were; they are not born again and saved, or spirit and perfected (as new age Christians proclaim) they become Ephraim.  They can now begin the spiritual works they skipped over; the works of the first six churches, through which they will experience a true spiritual birth, and true salvation.  The works are the works of judging “the tribes of Israel” (Matthew 19:28, Revelation 20:4, Psalms 122).  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire,” the fire symbolizing this spiritual judgment, through which the mind and heart are made pure, which the gold symbolizes. Christians have unwittingly chosen religious iniquity over spiritual truth, which they have become quite firm in, the word stick meaning to be firm.  But through repentance, which means to think differently they will become firm in spiritual truth, which the stick of Joseph symbolizes.  This is the joining of the stick of Judah to the stick of Joseph.

VIRUS: SPIRITUAL CAUSE and CURE

CoronavirusVIRUS: Any of various submicroscopic agents that infect living organisms, often causing disease. A harmful or destructive influence.

In the year 2000 the world entered the third and final era of Jacob or era of Spirit; a time of transition from carnal to spiritual, when that which is spiritual is being manifested in the physical, world-wide. It is imperative that we look for the spiritual cause behind the negative and destructive events taking place in the world today. The virus is the physical manifestation of man’s iniquity. Some would say that the virus has been around since time began. Precisely.  Iniquity is sin, and sin brings death.  It was after Eve listened to the serpent, symbolizing iniquity, that time, which is necessary for death to occur, began. Iniquity causes confusion, which is why there is so much confusion with this 21st century virus, which like iniquity, has spread exponentially.  The source of the iniquity that has caused so much confusion is the Church, referred to as “Babylon the Great” in the book of Revelation; an end-time revelation for mankind. The word Babylon means confusion. “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”  Revelation 17:5.  The Catholic Church is referred to as the Mother Church, the harlots being the Christian religions born of her, which is why it is written, “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4. Those that consider themselves to be God’s people are the super-spreaders.  The motherload of the iniquity has been spread through Christianity, founded upon the teachings of Paul, who spread the iniquity that is now, in this spiritual era, responsible for the virus that plagues us.

Another biblical word used to symbolize iniquity is leaven.   “Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.  The Pharisees and Sadducees were religious sects within Judaism during the time of Jesus. Iniquity is not only being spread through Christianity; it is being spread through Judaism.  “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.  We have entered the third and final era of Jacob; the era of Spirit, in which we are to worship God “in spirit and in truth,” not through carnal teachings that have us waiting for a physical Jesus to come in the physical clouds, or through carnal acts, which are now counted as iniquity, the spiritual cause of the virus.  Iniquity is lies, not truth.  This includes the lies we speak to ourselves, about ourselves, in our own mind, on a conscious and subconscious level. We must repent, which means, to think differently.  Until we do, we are counted among the super-spreaders of this deadly virus.

There must be a drastic change in the way we think, both religiously and personally, so it should come as no surprise that the Covid-19 variant is called Delta, the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet, the symbol an isosceles triangle (Δ), meaning change. Omicron is the fifth variant and the fifteenth letter of the Greek alphabet.  Jesus, symbolizing truth, came in the fifth; in the beginning of the fifth thousandth year, and in the fifteenth (in God’s cycle of time), which we see when adding 1+2+3+4+5, which equals fifteen. Jesus brought us truth, which was soon replaced with iniquity, the source of this iniquity found in the root meaning of Omicron, micron meaning little, or short, the literal description of Saul of Tarsus, which is why he was given the name Paul, meaning little, a derivative of the primary verb meaning stop, come to an end.  To stop the virus, we must stop the iniquity.  Iniquity is the spiritual cause. Truth is the spiritual cure.

THE TWO COVENANTS

“For it is written that Abraham had two sons, the one by the bondmaid, the other by the freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.  Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants: the one from mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Hagar.”  Galatians 4:22-24.

Abraham had two sons.  Ishmael and Isaac. The scripture is allegorical; symbolic, the spiritual language in which the Holy Bible is written, providing us with spiritual or mystical knowledge  so that we may understand the two states of the soul symbolized by these two sons.  The mother of Ishmael was Hagar, who was an Egyptian. Egypt, where the children of Israel spent 390 years in bondage, symbolizing the spiritual bondage we entered into early in life, just past the age of four according to the biblical text.  Ishmael was born of Hagar the bondwoman, symbolizes bondage.

“For this Hagar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem, which now is, and is in bondage with her children.”  Galatians 4:25. 

It was at mount Sinai that the children of Israel, chosen to represent us the people, went into bondage by worshipping of the gold calf, symbolizing the false image or belief that brings us into spiritual bondage, which only truth can overturn, freeing us from our bondage.  Jesus, the truth personified, demonstrated this for us when he entered the temple, symbolizing the heart, overturning the tables, symbolizing “the fleshy tables of the heart,” where we have set up these false images or beliefs, which are to be brought down through a spiritual judgment; by following the instruction given us by Jesus, through which truth reigns supreme from within our own heart.

“And Jesus said unto them.  Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”  Matthew 19:28

The twelve tribes of Israel are the sons of Jacob (Genesis 49:28), which are neither lost or extinct, but existing within.

“And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.”  Genesis 49:1. 

The Holy Quran refers to it as “The Day of Gathering Together.”  The “last days” is more accurately called the “end of days.”  There are seven days, and we are in the end of the seven days— in the seventh day; in the beginning of the seventh-thousandth year since the fall in garden, symbolizing man’s spiritual decline.  A day is as thousand years (2 Peter 3:8).  In the year 2000 we entered God’s one-time spiritual Sabbath Day, which we are to keep holy through the purification of our heart.  Jacob, through his last words to his sons, reveals what we will encounter as we go through this spiritual purification or healing process. Our false beliefs, the result of the evil seeds that have been sown in our heart, form our word, which the prophet Jeremiah (23:36) tells us is will be our burden, which is bondage.  In this soul-state we fall under the first covenant, Ishmael, son of the bondwoman, the two sons or two covenants symbolizing the two states of the soul: bondage and free.

“For it is written that Abraham had two sons, the one by the bondmaid, the other by the freewoman.” But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise

As God’s word was made flesh (John 1:14), so too has man’s word been made flesh, an invisible or spiritual flesh that has been formed inside of our physical flesh, keeping us in spiritual bondage, which Ishmael, the son of Hagar the bondwoman, symbolizes. Hagar was an Egyptian. The word Ishmael means God will hear.  When the children of Israel cried out because of the bondage of Egypt, God heard them. When we cry out because of the burden or bondage caused by our false beliefs, the first covenant is fulfilled within us.  Sarah was a Chaldean. She left this land that worshipped images and went to Shechem, meaning to incline (the shoulder to a burden).  When we are inclined to carry our burden, which Jesus demonstrated for us by carrying the cross, we have entered the second covenant. Through our sincere desire to heal spiritually; on a mental and emotional or soul-level, we discover our word of error, which has kept us in spiritual bondage for all these years.  And with the discovery of our false beliefs comes the discovery of the unholy spirits associated with them, revealed to us through the sons of Jacob. It is through our judgment of these false beliefs and unholy spirits, which is the process of overcoming them, that we receive the promise, which Isaac, the son of Sarah the freewoman, symbolizes, the promise symbolizing the truth that makes us free, placing us under the second covenant.  Jerusalem, symbolizing the Heart, has been made free of all false beliefs.

” But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.”   Galatians 4:26.

THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST

NUMBER of the BEAST“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:18.

The number is not 666. That number came through the power of the mind. Through knowledge, a number even a child can deduce if he knows that a “score” is equal to twenty. The true number came through the power of the heart. Through understanding that came by way of revelation in 1960. The number 666, assigned to the scripture over millennia, may point to physical things, as the number six pertains to the physical. But the true number has seven digits, the number seven pertaining to the spiritual—the physical event associated with this seven-digit number revealing the spiritual event that has taken place within the heart of man, giving power to the beast without.

“Six hundred threescore and six.”   Six hundred (600) threescore (60) and (0) six (6): 6006006.  Left to right, or right to left, it is the same number: six million, six thousand, and six, the number of Jews put to death in the Holocaust through the power of the first beast.  Every soul accounted for, never to be forgotten!

HOPI CHIEF DAN EVEHEMA’S “MESSAGE TO ALL MANKIND”

chiefdan(1)

In the year 2000 we entered the third and final era of Jacob, symbolizing Spirit, when we are to worship God on a spiritual level; the instructions for which are found in the Holy Bible, which is written in a symbolic language, the language of the Native American peoples. Through revelation of the symbolic code of the Bible, which I received over a period of seven years; between 1998 and 2005, we are able to incorporate the spiritual knowledge of the Word of God with that which is coming through the Spirit of God by way of Hopi Chief Dan Evehema’s very powerful and life-saving message to all mankind.

“We Hopi believe that the human race has passed through three different worlds and life ways since the beginning.  At the end of each prior world, human life has been purified or punished by the Great Spirit Massauu due mainly to corruption, greed, and turning away from the Great Spirit’s teachings. The last great destruction was the flood which destroyed all but a few faithful ones who received permission from the Great Spirit to live with Him in this new land. The Great Spirit said, “It is up to you, if you are willing to live my poor, humble, and simple life way.  It is hard but, if you agree to live according to my teachings and instructions, if you never lose faith in the life I shall give you, you may come and live with me.”

The destruction that is now upon us is spiritual; the flood of iniquity, caused by a turning away from the spiritual teachings of God’s Word. The “new land is called” the “promised land,” symbolizing the new life promised us through the forming of a new creation. “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth… Revelation 21:1. The few faithful ones, having done the spiritual works through which this new creation is made, are with God. “…and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.” Revelation 21:3. They are poor in the spiritual sense, “Blessed are the poor in spirit…” Matthew 5:3, having offered up the spiritual sacrifices through which their unholy spirit has been broken. “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit…”  Psalms 51:17. They are humble in the spiritual sense, having made their way down to a spiritual Jordan, meaning a descender, symbolizing this humble posture, stepping on the twelve metaphorical stones, symbolizing the spiritual works of their new creation, through which they receive a new life.

“The Hopi and all who were saved from the great flood made a sacred covenant with the Great Spirit at that time. To the Hopi the Great Spirit is all powerful. He appeared to the first people as a man and talked with them in the beginning of the creation of this world. He taught us how to live, to worship, where to go and what food to carry, gave us seeds to plant and harvest. He gave us a set of sacred stone tablets into which he breathed all teachings. In these stone tablets were made instructions and prophecies and warnings. This was done with the help of Spider Woman. Before the Great Spirit went into hiding, He and Spider Woman put before the leaders of the different groups of people many colors and sizes of corn for them to choose. The Hopi was the last to pick and then chose the smallest ear of corn. Then Massauu said, You have shown me you are wise and humble. For this reason you will be called Hopi (people of peace).”

The “sacred covenant” (in biblical terms) is called the “new covenant,” which is synonymous with the new creation.  If Mankind had followed the ancient spiritual instruction given to us in the creation story in the beginning of Genesis, which means creation, he would know how to live, and how to worship. This instruction was later given to Moses in the form of two “stone tablets,” which contained the spiritual laws that man was to live by.  The “corn” symbolizes the spiritual seed or word of God.  Joseph was in possession of the corn, wearing a coat of many colors, which like the “many colors” of Hopi corn, symbolize degrees of spiritual growth.  Hopi, last to pick of the corn, picked “the smallest,” represented by Benjamin, the “younger brother” of Joseph.  Benjamin received the smallest inheritance with regard to the measure of land, but the richest with regard to the spiritual measure of that new spiritual land called the heart, which is called “new Jerusalem,” the word Jerusalem meaning founded peaceful.  Hopi (people of peace) represent those that have humbled themselves to the spiritual or internal judgment symbolized by the twelve stones of the Jordan, through which one obtains authentic peace of the heart.

“It was to Spider Woman’s two grandsons the sacred stone tablets were given. These two brothers were instructed to carry them to a place the Great Spirit had instructed them. The older brother was to go immediately to the east, to the rising sun and upon reaching his destination was instructed to immediately start to look for his younger brother who shall remain in the land of the Great Spirit.  The older brother’s mission when he returned was to help his younger brother (Hopi) bring about peace, brotherhood and everlasting life. Hopi, the younger brother, was instructed to cover all land and mark it well with footprints and sacred markings to claim this land for the Creator and peace on earth. We established our ceremonials and sacred shrines to hold this world in balance in accordance with our first promise to the Creator. This is how our migration story goes, until we met the Creator at Old Oraibi (place that solidifies) over 1000 years ago. It was at that meeting when he gave to us these prophecies to give to you now at this closing of the Fourth World of destruction and the beginning of the Fifth World of peace. He gave us many prophecies to pass on to you, and all have come to pass. This is how we know the timing is now to reveal the last warnings and instructions to mankind.”

Benjamin and Joseph, like the “two brothers,” symbolize the two divine attributes of the Creator and Creation. Spirit and Word; Love and Truth, the spiritual anointing that brings peace to the heart. The “two brothers” that carried the “stone tablets” were Moses and Aaron, Moses symbolizing the Spirit of God and Aaron, who spoke for Moses, symbolizing the Word of God, which carry “the sacred stone tablets” containing the spiritual law “to a place the Great Spirit had instructed them,” which spiritually is the Heart. “But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.” Jeremiah 31:33. The “older brother” was to go to “the east” and look for his “younger brother,” illustrating the re-uniting of the spirit and the word, bringing on a resurrection of spiritual truth, which the “rising sun” symbolizes.  When they come together in the heart of man, there will be “peace, brotherhood, and everlasting life.” “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!  It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore. Psalms 133:1-3.  Hopi, the younger brother, was instructed to “cover all land and mark it well with footprints and sacred markings to claim this land for the Creator and peace on earth.”  The spiritual land is our heart, which we claim for the Creator through the imprinting and inscribing of truth.  The “ceremonials and sacred shrines,” performed and erected physically in the previous “era of Isaac,” are now, in what is the spiritual “era of Jacob,” to be performed and erected spiritually, bringing balance and peace to the heart, which will bring balance and peace to the earth.  “Old Oraibi (place that solidifies).”  When God spoke His word, it was the sowing of His seed into Mother Earth, which formed His Creation. “The parable is this: the seed is the word of God.”  Luke 8:11. All things are made by a seed. “All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. John 1:2, referring to Jesus, the physical manifestation of the seed or word of God, sowed into Mary through the power of the holy Spirit. “And the word was made flesh…” John 1:14. There can be no formation of God’s creation without the help of the Woman, the Mother, which spiritually speaking, is the Heart, Jerusalem. When the spiritual seed of God, truth, is sowed in the heart, it solidifies, forming a new creation, “New Jerusalem.” The word Jerusalem means founded peaceful.  Jesus, who came in the Fifth; in the beginning of the Fifth thousandth year, brought mankind the ancient spiritual “instructions” through which this new creation is made within us, which is the only way mankind will enter “the Fifth World of peace.”

We were told to settle permanently here in Hopiland where we met the Great Spirit and to wait for Older Brother, who went east, to return to us. When he returns to this land he will place his stone tablets side by side to show all the world that they are our true brothers — when the road in the sky has been fulfilled and when the inventing of something, in Hopi means, gourd of ashes, a gourd that, when it drops upon the earth will boil everything within a large space and nothing will grow for a very long time. We were told that three helpers who were commissioned by the Great Spirit to help Hopi bring about the peaceful life on earth would appear to help us and that we should not change our homes, our ceremonials, our hair, because the true helpers might not recognize us as the true Hopi.  So we have been waiting all these years.  It is known that our True White Brother, when he comes, will be all powerful and will wear a red cap or red cloak. He will be large in population and belong to no religion but his very own. He will bring with him the sacred stone tablets. With him there will be two great ones, both very wise and powerful.”

“Hopiland” would be akin to Jerusalem, symbolizing the Heart, where we will meet the holy spirit, once we stop resisting it.  The Hopi were to wait in Hopiland for “Older Brother,” as the Apostles were to wait in Jerusalem for “Jesus.” “And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father…” Acts 1:4. The promise is the seed or word of God; the “Older Brother,” which went to the east, symbolizing the spirit.  Jesus, the seed or word of God personified, went to the east metaphorically, sitting on the right hand of God, the right hand symbolizing the power or spirit through which the seed or word of truth is sowed in our heart. The “road in the sky” has been fulfilled. We can no longer reach the Great Spirit through the power of our mind, which the sky symbolizes. The only way now is through the power of our heart. The Hopi prophecies are interpreted as physical events, revealing the spiritual events that can now be interpreted through an understanding of the symbolic code of the Bible, through which we receive the spiritual message of instruction that will enable us to avert the dismal prophecies predicted for our future.  The Hopi interprets the “gourd of ashes” as the atomic bomb.  The words “atomic holocaust and 2006” were discovered using the mathematical code of the Bible.  Not taking place in the physical suggests a spiritual interpretation, the “gourd” of the Bible symbolizing the false peace that has settled over the people. This false peace was removed, if only briefly, on September 11th, 2001, when the two towers, which hold important symbolic meaning, were reduced to a pile “of ashes.”  The “three helpers commissioned by the Great Spirit” symbolize the mind, heart, and body, the faculties of thought, emotion, and action. Jesus, through the symbolism of his “cup and platter” parable, instructs us to purify the thoughts of our mind and the emotions of our heart, through which are actions will become clean, made pure. This is the only way we can “bring about the peaceful life on earth.”  The “True White Brother” will “wear a red cap or red cloak” in the spiritual sense, his mind and heart influenced solely by the holy spirit. The color associated with the spirit, is red. And yes, he will belong to no religion, which has prevented the return of the “two great ones.” Referred to in scripture as the “two witnesses,” they have been resurrected in the heart of the “True White Brother,” being the source of power and wisdom.

“One will have a symbol or sign of the swastika, which represents purity and is Female, a producer of life. The third one or the second one of the two helpers to our True White Brother will have a sign of a symbol of the sun. He, too, will be many people and very wise and powerful. One will have the symbol of the moja, or cross. We have in our sacred Kachina ceremonies a gourd rattle which is still in use today with these symbols of these powerful helpers of our True Brother. It is also prophesied that, if these three fail to fulfill their mission, then the one from the west will come like a big storm. He will be many in numbers and unmerciful. When he comes he will cover the land like the red ants and overtake this land in one day. If the three helpers chosen by the Creator fulfill their sacred mission, and even if there are only one, two, or three of the true Hopi who remain holding fast to the last ancient teaching and instructions the Great Spirit, Massauu will appear before all, and our world will be saved. The three will lay a new life plan which leads to everlasting life and peace. The earth will become new as it was from the beginning. Flowers will bloom again, wild game will return to barren lands, and there will be abundance of food for all. Those who are saved will share everything equally and they all will recognize Great Spirit and speak one language.”

The “producer of life” is the heart, which the earth symbolizes. Life comes from the seed (male) that is sowed in that spiritual earth called the heart (female).  It is the spiritual seed or word of truth that purifies our heart, the symbol of the “swastika” representing “purity.”  It was through Hitler, with whom many of us associate the symbol of the “swastika,” that the Jews experienced a judgment that came in the way of human holocaust; a physical baptism of fire that was intended to produce a pure Aryan race.  But what it actually produced was a Zionist state, representing a pure spiritual state.  Through an internal judgment or baptism of fire we are spiritually purified, experiencing a spiritual death and rebirth, which the “cross” symbolizes. The “sign of the symbol of the sun” (sun) points us to the son (son), who brought mankind the “ancient teaching and instruction” for purifying his mind, heart, and body, which is salvation of the soul. But mankind has failed to fulfil this three-fold mission. The “big storm” is the negative and destructive energy mankind is giving power to by failing to do the spiritual works that help save his soul. It is coming “from the west” because “the west” symbolizes “the word,” man’s word, which the prophet Jeremiah says will be his burden. Man’s word is the sum of all of his false religious and personal beliefs, the source of the negative and destructive energy that will manifest itself through an external judgment, executed by those of the nation chosen for that purpose. They will be many. And they will show no mercy!  The physical earth can only become new through the creation of a new spiritual earth. A new earth symbolizes a new heart, which has been saved from false beliefs, which is the only way we can help save our world from the destruction coming upon it. Those that help to save the earth through the transformation of their heart, will have all things in common in the spiritual sense. They will be of one mind and of one heart, speaking one language— the language of spiritual truth!

“We are now faced with great problems, not only here but throughout the land. Ancient cultures are being annihilated. Our people’s lands are being taken from them. Why is this happening? It is happening because many have given up or manipulated their original spiritual teachings. The way of life which the Great Spirit has given to all people of the world, whatever your original instructions, are not being honored. It is because of this great sickness called greed, which infects every land and country. Now we are at the very end of our trail. Many people no longer recognize the true path of the Great Spirit. They have, in fact, no respect for the Great Spirit or for our precious Mother Earth, who gives us all life. We were told that someone would try to go up to the moon, that they would bring something back from the moon, and that after that nature would show signs of losing its balance. Now we see that coming about. All over the world, there are now many signs that nature is no longer in balance. Floods, drought, earthquakes, and great storms are occurring constantly and causing much suffering.”

The spiritual teachings of the Holy Bible have been lost to the carnal minded doctrines of religion for over 3500 years; through literal interpretations being assigned to that which is spiritual. The lands have been removed from the red man as our ancient sacred texts have been removed from the spirit; removed from a spiritual interpretation or understanding. And as the holy spirit has been removed from the spiritual lands, the hearts of man, replaced with an unholy spirit, the cause of our many “great problems.”  The Word of God agrees with the Spirit. There is a great sickness of the heart, as was written by the prophet Jeremiah, “And thou shalt have great sickness by disease of thy bowels… My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart… destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled…” Jeremiah 4:18-20.  The “true path” has been covered over with religious iniquity; the leaders driven by spiritual greed— a lust for spiritual power.  There is “no respect for the Great Spirit or for our precious Mother Earth, who gives life” because there is no respect for the holy spirit that works through our precious spiritual Mother Earth; spiritual Jerusalem, referred to as “the mother of us all,” through which we obtain spiritual life. The “moon” has a direct effect upon the seas, which were gathered together unto one place in the Creation, and in the Red Sea.  What we bring back from a metaphorical journey to the moon is awareness of our repressed thoughts or memories, which the gathering together of the waters or seas, symbolizes, and which is to take place in the third day, which the world entered with the new millennium. The “moon” also has a direct effect upon our emotions, our suppressed emotions causing an imbalance in our heart, which the imbalance in nature and the earth are testifying to through “floods, drought, earthquakes, and great storms.”

“Now we must look upon each other as brothers and sisters. There is no more time for divisions among people. Today I call upon all of us, from right here at home, Hotevilla, where we too are guilty of gossiping and causing divisions even among our own families; out to the entire world where thievery, war, and lying go on every day. These divisions will not be our salvation.  Wars only bring more wars, never peace. Only by joining together in a Spiritual Peace with love in our hearts for one another, love in our hearts for the Great Spirit and Mother Earth, shall we be saved from the terrible Purification Day which is just ahead. There are many of you in this world who are honest people. We pray for balance on earth to live in peace and leave a beautiful world to the children yet to come. We know you have good hearts, but good hearts are not enough to help us with these great problems. We want the people of the world to know the truth of our situation. This land which people call the Land of the Freedom celebrates many days reminding people of the world of these things. Yet in well over 200 years, the original Americans have not seen a free day. We are suffering the final insult. Our people are now losing the one thing which gives life and meaning to life — our ceremonial land, which is being taken away from us. Hotevilla is the last holy consecrated, undisturbed traditional Native American sacred shrine to the Creator. As the prophecy says, this sacred shrine must keep its spiritual pathways open. This village is the spiritual vortex for the Hopi to guide the many awakening Native Americans and other true hearts home to their own unique culture. Where is the freedom which you all fight for and sacrifice your children for?”

As long as there are false beliefs, there will be divisions, religion being the greatest divider, which is why the “True White Brother” will “belong to no religion.”  As long as there are divisions, there can be no peace. The wars without are manifestations of the spiritual or internal wars that have yet to be fought within mankind. “From whence come wars and fightings among you? Come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?” James 4:1, our members being our own mind and heart, where we hold on to false perceptions and beliefs.  “Spiritual Peace” will require more than love in our hearts for the Great Spirit, Mother Earth, and each other. It will require truth, through which we overcome the falsehood that exists within us, experiencing a spiritual “Purification Day,” which will save us from the physical “Purification Day which is just ahead.” What purifies the heart is truth, the essence of Love, which is the Great Spirit. Jesus said we cannot come unto the Father except through him, which is to say, we cannot come to Love except through truth. “ 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. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” Matthew 22:37-39.  In seeking truth, we demonstrate our love of self.  Only then can we truly love our brother.  Many of us may be honest with respect to our outward actions. But there is a deeper level of honesty that exists at the heart-level. Many of us would never consider stealing from our brother, yet we continually rob God by offering carnal sacrifices instead of spiritual sacrifices, which would transform the negative and destructive energy causing “these great problems” into positive and constructive or creative energy, bringing balance to that spiritual earth called the heart, which will bring balance to the physical earth. The “200 years [in which] the original Americans have not seen a free day” is representative of the 2000 years mankind has rejected the spiritual “teachings and instructions” through which he would be made spiritually free.  The Native American Indian or Red man embodies the Spirit of God. They were assigned caretakers of Mother Earth, as the holy spirit is caretaker of the Heart. But like the Red man, the holy spirit of the heart has suffered “the final insult,” loosing possession of the heart through an unholy spirit.  Hotevilla, like Hopiland, is representative of the spiritual shrine or temple, which is the Heart, the spiritual pathways of which are opened by following the spiritual instructions given to us through our ancient sacred texts and writings.

“Is it only the Indian people who have lost, or are all Americans losing the very thing which you originally came here to find? We don’t share the freedom of the press because what gets into the papers is what the government wants people to believe, not what is really happening. We have no freedom of speech, because we are persecuted by our own people for speaking our beliefs. We are at the final stages now, and there is a last force that is about to take away our remaining homeland. We are still being denied many things including the right to be Hopis and to make our living in accordance with our religious teachings. The Hopi leaders have warned leaders in the White House and the leaders in the Glass House [the United Nations] but they do not listen. So as our prophecy says then it must be up to the people with good pure hearts that will not be afraid to help us to fulfill our destiny in peace for this world. We now stand at a crossroad whether to lead ourselves in everlasting life or total destruction. So many people have come to Hopiland to meet with us. Many times people have asked how they can help us. Now I hope and pray that your help will come. If you have a way to spread the truth, through the newspapers, radio, books, through meeting with powerful people, tell the truth!  Tell them what you know to be true.  Tell them what you have seen here, what you have heard us say; what you have seen with your own eyes. We, the Hopi, hold the sacred stone tablets and now await the coming of our True White Brother and others seriously ready to work for the Creator’s peace on earth. We are not so different in the Creator’s eyes. The same great Father Sun shines his love on each of us daily just as Mother Earth prepares the substance for our table, do they not? We are one after all.” 

Chief Dan Evehema from Hotevilla, Arizona, Hopi Sovereign Nation Spiritual leader, Eldest Elder Greasewood/Roadrunner Clan

“Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father… the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth…” John 4:21,23.  The world entered the new era with the new millennium, where we stand at the final crossroad. Continue to worship God or the Great Spirit in a literal mountain or temple, or worship Him in a spiritual mountain or temple, both of which symbolize the heart. The “White House” also represents the Heart, which is full of corruption, the “Glass House” or “United Nations” representing the spiritual nations we are given power over when we keep the spiritual works of the Father, which His Son spoke of and demonstrated for us while he was on this earth.  “And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:” Revelation 2:26.  Through these spiritual works our heart is made pure, entering a state of peace, which is now the only way we can contribute to bringing about peace in our world. Even if one does not possess freedom of speech in the literal sense, he possesses freedom of speech in the spiritual sense, able to speak words of truth in his heart, which has more power to effect change than all the words spoken through the media. If our beliefs are in line with the Creator’s, there will always be persecution, as Jesus said, “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.” Matthew 10:22. Persecuted for the sake of the spiritual name, which is truth, through which we are saved from the negative and destructive energy being generated by our false religious and personal beliefs. We have entered “the final stages,” entering the third and final “era of Jacob,” in which we are given one final opportunity “to lead ourselves into everlasting life” through spiritual works or lead ourselves into total destruction through spiritual disobedience.  The True Red Brother and the True White Brother will hold [to] the same spiritual stone tablets, which contain the spiritual laws of the Creator, written upon the heart through spiritual obedience.

THE NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN

Native American2

The Native American Indian or Red man was assigned by the Creator to be caretakers of Mother Earth. The Red man possessed the Spirit of God, connecting with the Spirit that lives in all things, while the White man possessed the Word of God in the form of The Holy Bible.  But there was great error in the White Man with respect to God’s Word, the Spirit of which had all but been destroyed by the middle of the 5th century, spiritual truth giving way to religious iniquity. The White man that entered the North American continent toward the end of the 15th century was not what the Hopi Indians refer to as “The True White Brother.”  If He were, He would have co-existed with the Red Man, living in peace and harmony.  What was the importance of bringing the White man and the Red man together?  To bring the literal Word of God, which was in the hand of the White man, back to the Spirit through an understanding of the language in which it was written, which being symbolic, was in the hand of the Red man. Through it we gain a spiritual understanding of the Word of God, which is of vital importance as we enter the third and final “era of Jacob” or “era of Spirit.”

The word of the White man, in both government and religion, was lies. The government of the White man broke nearly every treaty it made with the Red man. The religion of the White man that entered the North American continent was not the Word of God, not in doctrine or in spirit.  It was a man-made image of God’s Word, too often wielded in the spirit of self-righteousness. And in an arrogant display of entitlement, the government of the White man nearly wiped out the Red man, just as the man-made dogmas governing the self-righteous religious peoples had all but wiped out the Spirit of the God’s Word.  The Spirit of God has been working through the Red man, warning us of the imbalance in Mother Earth.  And what does the Red man tell us is causing this imbalance?  Greed.  The root of evil that is bringing death and destruction to Mother Earth.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil…” 1 Timothy 6:10. The love of money is greed, a negative emotion born of fear and lust for control— two unholy spirits created in the absence of God’s holy spirit, which are dwelling in the Heart of man; in our spiritual Mother Earth. Greed is a rapacious (rə-pā′shəs) desire for more than one needs or deserves.  Spiritual greed is a lust for spiritual power, which is at work in Christianity due to the great lie that created the lust, perpetuated by the first great corrupter of the teachings of Jesus, which is being demonstrated through churches around the world.  Having the same evil root as monetary greed, it is contributing to the destruction of our physical Mother Earth. We will never be able to give the land back to the Native American peoples, but we can balance the spiritual scales of justice by giving that spiritual land called the Heart back to the Spirit of God, through which we honor the Red man, whom the Creator has chosen as caretakes of Mother Earth!

JUDAH and JERUSALEM

OpenBible2

The Bible contains the history of the Judean-Christian religion, encoded in the symbolism of its stories. There is an Israel and Judah of Judaism, and there is an Israel and Judah of Christianity. Israel was called Judah after passing through the Red Sea, receiving the name through a type-and-shadow baptism, Judah associated with the name. Jesus, of the tribe of Judah, said that he came in his Father’s name.  Jesus was called the Son of God. The surname of the father is carried on through the son. “In Isaac shall the seed be called.” Hebrews 11:18.   Jesus was the seed of God made flesh, the word called meaning to bid, call forth, whose surname was called.  It was in the literal surname assigned to the Father in the previous “era of Isaac” that the people were to be baptized. Jacob was called Israel, his sons revealing the spiritual process through which we become a son of God, which must have the name in order to fulfil the carnal law.  “A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord. Deuteronomy 23:2

The Israel of Christianity is Catholic and Trinity. The Judah of Christianity is Pentecost.  What separated the two can be seen in their baptisms. Pentecost, Judah of the Gentiles, baptized “in the name of Jesus,” which came by revelation in the early 1900’s, and is the true baptism. Catholic and Trinity baptize “in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,” an illegitimate baptism as no man has the power to baptize us of the Son or of the Holy Spirit, which are spiritual baptisms. Israel and Judah separated when it came to water baptism, but they were of one when it came to the spirit that had rule over them, a king symbolizing a spirit. “And Jehoshaphat (the king of Judah) said to the king of Israel, I am as thou art, my people as thy people, my horses as thy horses.” 1 Kings 22:4. The word horse means to skip; a swallow (from its rapid flight).  The spirit of the horse is impatience.  The JUDAH of Judaism got impatient while waiting for Moses to come down off the mount, during which time they built a false image, breaking God’s spiritual law; a transgression that placed them under the carnal law.  The JUDAH of Christianity got impatient while waiting for what Moses symbolizes, which is the holy Spirit, which Paul told them they would receive once they believed and were baptized.  “And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Spirit since ye believed? Acts 19:1,2.  But it was not the Holy Spirit they would receive. It was the gift, which the holy spirit delivers. “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.  Paul turned the truth into a lie, causing Christians to build a false spiritual image. When we accept a lie in our heart by believing it, we are committing spiritual adultery. Both Israel and Judah of the Gentiles committed spiritual adultery by believing Paul’s lie pertaining to the holy Spirit.

“And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery, I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.”   Jeremiah 3:8.   According to the words of Jeremiah, God was married to Israel and Judah. There was an intercourse or communication that took place between God and this Israel and Judah of the Gentiles. The unholy spirit that caused them to commit spiritual adultery was their impatience with regard to what they were promised, which is encoded in the story of Judah, whose daughter-in-law played the harlot due to impatience when it came to what she was promised. Israel and Judah of Christianity have become one, but not for the good, ruled by the same unholy spirit of impatience, the spirit of JUDAH, which has caused them to skip over the spiritual works that would bring them into the exalted state they are proclaiming.  According to the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah, they are not born again, and they are not saved, a doctrine that has spread throughout Christianity. Those that have accepted the false “born again and saved” belief are JUDAH, which has caused their mind to enter a false peace, which JERUSALEM, in its negative connotation, symbolizes. This is the JUDAH and JERUSALEM of whom Isaiah and Jeremiah prophesied.

SIGNS in the END TIMES

SIGNS-END TIMESWe are in the end of [the seven] days; in the beginning of the seventh day or seventh-thousandth year since the beginning of the spiritual decline of mankind, symbolized by the fall in the garden.

“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” 2 Peter 3:8.

The number seven pertains to the spiritual, which coincides with what is the third and final “era of Jacob,” which the world entered with the new millennium. It is important that we understand the message in Jacob’s description of his sons in what is the last, or end of, days.

“And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.” Genesis 49:1

The Quran refers to it as “The Day of Gathering together.”

It is a spiritual or internal gathering of the 12 sons of Jacob or 12 tribes of Israel, which takes place as we judge (overcome) the negative aspects of these sons or tribes from within our own mind and heart.

“And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration, when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. Matthew 19:28

Let’s take a look at the first three unholy spirits or energies, born of Leah, symbolizing flesh. Because this spiritual judgment has not been taking place in mankind, the negative and destructive spirits or energies of what these sons or tribes represent, moves out into the physical where we can see the effects they are having upon mankind.  Leah’s first son is Reuben. The unholy spirit of Reuben is fear, a spiritual truth we find encoded in the story of Reuben, who lay with his father’s concubine, Bilhah, which means terror. The SIGN of this fear or terror was SEPTEMBER 11th, 2001. What follows fear are two more unholy spirits:

“Simeon and Levi are brethren: instruments of cruelty are in their habitations. O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.” Genesis 49:5,6

Simeon and Levi, the unholy spirits of anger and control. They are brethren; kindred spirits. Where there is one, you will find the other. They are the source of every physical addiction, which is being driven by our spiritual bondage or addiction. The soul is not to come unto their “assembly,” referring, outwardly, to the religious assembly, as the church is filled with false beliefs, and as the temple was filled with false images in the days of Josiah. What is sustaining the anger and control that fuels our addictions, are the false images or beliefs we have set up in that spiritual temple called the heart.  It was in the temple that Jesus expressed righteous anger in response to the false images that were set up upon the tables, representing “the fleshy tables of the heart.”  Let us use our anger to do right, directing it toward the false image or belief, which through our sincere desire to overcome, will bring us the truth that destroys them; making us spiritually free. Many choose to accept these false religious beliefs because it gives them a feeling of empowerment, and peace, but it is a false empowerment, and a false peace, the false peace symbolized by the wall that should be brought down, and will be brought down when the reality of what is taking place in the world does not match the religious image they bought into.

“Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter: Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall…” Ezekiel 13:10,11.

And if you challenge their beliefs, you will see their anger rise up in an effort to maintain control, which they demonstrate by slaying you metaphorically with hateful words, just as the religious assembly slew Jesus for attempting to bring them a new, yet ancient, spiritual truth— “for in their anger they slew a man.”  It is through their anger and control that “they digged down a wall,” symbolizing the invisible wall of protection they would have entered through spiritual obedience to the spiritual or internal works that Jesus spoke of and demonstrated for us while he was on this earth. We are seeing this anger being unleashed upon our policemen, who serve as our physical wall of protection, a macrocosm of the WORLD-SIGN revealing the spirit of anger and control in the heart of mankind, which is giving power to the “instruments of cruelty;” those used to demonstrate this negative and destructive energy from without, which we have come to know as ISIS.  What do September 11th, 2001 and ISIS have in common? The nation they are associated with. The nation chosen to represent the spiritual bondage of mankind. The carnal interpretations being assigned to both the Holy Bible and the Holy Quran have kept those of Religion from obeying the spiritual laws or works through which they would have been made free of their spiritual bondage, which is why the Religion chosen to represent the bondage state of the soul, is gaining in power, exponentially. But it is not a peaceful power. It is a negative and destructive warring power, whose law will be oppressive, a law without mercy.  As within, as without.

“Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? “For it is written that Abraham had two sons, the one by the bondmaid, the other by a freewoman…which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants.”  Galatians 4:21, 22, 24. 

Islam and Israel. Two great nations, each serving as a SIGN, revealing the spiritual state of mankind. Ishmael and Isaac, existing without as Muslims and Jews. Existing side-by-side in the holy Land, symbolizing the Heart of man. The on-going war between Palestinians and Jews is the outward expression of the on-going internal war that has yet to be won in the heart of mankind. “From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?” James 4:1, the “members” symbolizing our own mind and heart, the lusts of which are driven by the false beliefs that keep us in spiritual bondage, under the 1st covenant.  Israel and America are inherently linked by what they stand for, which is freedom, the 2nd covenant. They must stand in support of one another to preserve our physical freedom, as they represent the two witnesses that work together within to bring us spiritual freedom. America’s symbol is the eagle, representing the presence of God. Israel’s symbol is the star of David, whose six points represent our six days of spiritual works, through which we are made spiritually free. The country retreat for the President of the United States is called “Camp David,” which is no coincidence. David was a man after God’s own heart, which he became by slaying the Lion and the Bear, the lion symbolizing man’s unholy spirit, the bear symbolizing man’s unrighteous word, man’s word being the sum of his false religious and personal beliefs, which the prophet Jeremiah says will be his burden, which is bondage.  America, “the land of the free,” had to fight against England, whose symbol is the Lion, in order to preserve that freedom. The recent focus on Russia, whose symbol is the Bear, is yet another SIGN.  Having entered the spiritual “era of Jacob” with the new millennium, we must now fight against the spiritual bear by fighting against the unrighteous word of our own heart.  If mankind continues in its spiritual disobedience by refusing to fight this internal bear, the external Land that stands for freedom will become a Land of bondage, which we are already witnessing here in America through the enactment of more and more laws. To stop an oppressive government and religion from ruling us from without, we must stop the oppressive power that is ruling us from within.  Russia stands in support of Syria, another very important SIGN, pointing to the direction we are headed as a people and as nations if we do not get on with slaying the spiritual bear of false beliefs, the Holy Bible providing us with the instruction through which we will be delivered of this oppressive internal, and therefore external power, we are facing in these END TIMES.

“Now Elisha was fallen sick of his sickness whereof he died.  And Joash the king of Israel came down unto him, and wept over his face, and said, O my father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And Elisha said unto him, Take bow and arrows. And he took unto him bow and arrows. And he said to the king of Israel, Put thine hand upon the bow. And he put his hand upon it: and Elisha put his hands upon the king’s hands. And he said, Open the window eastward. And he opened it. Then Elisha said, Shoot. And he shot. And he said, The arrow of the Lord’s deliverance from Syria…” 2 Kings 13:14-17. 

Elisha received “the double portion,” symbolizing the spirit and word of God, the presence of God, the death of which took place within us when we replaced God’s holy spirit and word with an unholy spirit and word, symbolized by the lion and the bear that David slew. To be delivered of our word of false beliefs will require us to follow the instruction of Elisha, which is the resurrection of truth.  “And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold, they spied a band of men; and they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived, and stood upon his feet.”  2 Kings 13:21. Jesus, symbolizing truth, said, “I am the resurrection.”  It is through the resurrection of truth from within our heart that we receive salvation; being saved from our own word of false beliefs, through which our heart is made clean, our holy spirit restored to the state in which we received it from God. “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.” Psalms 51:10-12.  It is through God’s power that our heart is made clean. But as Joash called upon Elisha, we must call upon the spiritual power of our heart by activating it according to God’s ancient spiritual instruction. These are just a few of the many SIGNS that we have been given in these END TIMES.

2012 DECODED

iuO6Y15085“The Hopi and Mayan elders do not prophesy that everything will come to an end. Rather, this is a time of transition from one World Age into another. The message they give concerns our making a choice of how we enter the future ahead. Our moving through with either resistance or acceptance will determine whether the transition will happen with cataclysmic changes or gradual peace and tranquility. The same theme can be found reflected in the prophecies of many other Native American visionaries from Black Elk to Sun Bear…”

In the year 2000 the world made its transition from one biblical era into another.  From the carnal era of Isaac into the spiritual era of Jacob; a transition that was illustrated 2000 years ago when John the Baptist decreased and Jesus the Christ increased. It was to be man’s transition from repentance to perfection through the spiritual works that Jesus spoke of and illustrated for us while he was on this earth.  But mankind has not been performing these spiritual works for the past 2000 years, making little spiritual advancement due to the carnal-minded doctrines of religion, which fail to teach these deeper works.  If man accepts this transition by doing the spiritual works, there will be peace and tranquility. But if he resists, there will be war and destruction, causing much anxiety. 

“The Mayans prophesied that from 1999 we have 13 years to realize the changes in our conscious attitude to stray from the path of self-destruction and instead move onto a path that opens our consciousness to integrate us with all that exists.”  – Joseph Robert Jochmans

The biblical time of transition took place in the year 2000, giving us 12 years to actualize positive change through a spiritual judgment that takes place in the heart, the number 12 representing judgment.  At the end of these twelve years a physical judgment will begin to take place in the earth.  “And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea…  This is the travailing of mother earth, revealing the spiritual travailing that should already be taking place in our spiritual mother— in our heart.  The time of trouble mentioned in the 12th chapter of Daniel, meaning judge of God, is to bring on the spiritual birth in those that have yet to begin this transition.  Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.  And I heard the number of them that were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.” Revelation 7:2-4.  144,000.  The number of days in a Baktun cycle.  But more importantly, it is a spiritual measure reached through the spiritual judgment Jesus spoke of.  “And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” Matthew 19:28.  Each tribe has a positive and negative aspect.  We are to judge (overcome) the negative aspects.  The number 12 represents judgment. Judging the 12 tribes formulates to 12 x 12, which equals 144.  “And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits” Rev. 21:17.  Those that complete this spiritual judgment enter a spiritual wall of protection. These have become pure in heart through a spiritual sacrifice, entering what is referred to as the 1,000 year reign of Christ: 144 + 1,000 = 144,000.

What do man’s carnal sacrifices have in common?
The sacrificing of the pure and of the innocent.

In the “era of Abraham” (some 4000 years ago) Abraham was instructed to sacrifice his innocent son. Five hundred years later, the Hebrews would be instructed to sacrifice a lamb without spot or blemish, illustrating what would take place in the “era of Isaac” (some 2000 years ago), when a human lamb, one without spot or blemish (without sin) was sacrificed. Why would God first instruct Abraham to sacrifice his innocent son?  To show us, through the ancient language of biblical symbolism, the spiritual act that has taken place in the heart of man; the son symbolizing the word of God, which is truth; the sacrificing of a spiritual innocence or purity, which according to scripture begins to take place just past the age of four.  In the end, it was not Abraham’s innocent son that was sacrificed, but the ram, symbolizing idolatry, the worshipping of images, which we continue to do as long as we give reverence to the false religious and personal images or beliefs of our heart. The Mayans misinterpreted the ancient spiritual knowledge given them in the way of symbols.  It was not the literal heart that was to be sacrificed, but the spiritual impurities of the heart.  “When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart.”  Proverbs 26:25.  “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:” Matthew 15:19.

I can only hope that over the next 5 years many of us will become still, quieting our mind, entering that spiritual temple called the heart, discovering and sacrificing the false religious and personal beliefs, whose negative and destructive energy is bringing death.  Let us be diligent, setting aside beliefs and disciplines that serve only to bring us an illusion of peace.  Setting aside the things that distract us from the spiritual works that must be performed in order to spiritually prepare us for the dismal prophecies predicted for our future due to our fallen spiritual state.
