HOPI “MESSAGE TO ALL MANKIND”

chiefdan(1)

In the year 2000 we entered the spiritual “era of Jacob,” when we are to worship God on a spiritual level; the instructions encoded 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 (1998-2005), we are able to incorporate the spiritual knowledge of the Word of God with the message 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 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 an understanding of the symbolism, we gain a spiritual understanding of the Holy Bible, which is of vital importance as we enter what is the third and final spiritual era of Jacob.

REINCARNATION

Reincarnation: the doctrine that the soul, upon death of the body, comes back to earth in another body or form. Rebirth of the soul in a new body.

This is the general understanding of reincarnation today, which came from the east.  A different understanding comes from The Holy Bible— the Sacred Text of the west.

The soul, by definition, is the vital principle in man credited to the faculty of thought, emotion, and action. The soul is unique to each individual because none of us have the same exact experiences in life, which determine how we think and feel; thought and emotion.  The eastern concept of reincarnation teaches that the soul of an individual can return again and again for the purpose of reaching total enlightenment or perfection.  Here the body experiences a physical death followed by a physical birth as the soul is transferred to a new body.  Fact: energy is either transferred or transformed. The east teaches transference of the soul-energy. Here’s the problem with this incomplete concept.  Our soul, through the painful things we saw, heard, felt, and experienced throughout our life took on negative and destructive energy.  If our soul-energy is not transformed during our time here on earth, our unhealed mental and emotional energy will be transferred, passing over into the spiritual realm (“in heaven as it is on earth”).  If we are to accept the eastern concept of reincarnation we must accept that the infant comes into this world in an unhealed mental and emotional state, otherwise what would be the purpose of the soul’s return, which according to the east is “to reach enlightenment.”  So now, the poor soul that has taken on a new body not only has the burden of the negative and destructive energy of the previous life, but the burden of the negative and destructive energy his soul will carry through the painful experiences of this life.  To have a complete understanding of reincarnation we must incorporate what the Sacred Text of the west has to teach us on the subject.

The Holy Bible teaches spiritual reincarnation through a spiritual death and rebirth that takes place while we are in the physical body. To reach spiritual enlightenment or perfection does not require the soul to experience many past lives through many bodies. But rather to experience the past of this life in this one body.  Jesus said we must “become as little children,” which takes place through the transformation of our mental and emotional (soul) energy, through which we return to the state we lived in as little children; pure in thought and emotion—  the state in which we were born. The transformation of our mental and emotional energy is the spiritual rebirth of our soul within our body.  Transformation is an act, process, or instance of transforming or being transformed.  It is the process through which we become a new creation as our “first heaven and earth” (formed through false perceptions and beliefs that carry negative and destructive energy) passes away (Revelation 21:1). This passing away is the spiritual death that precedes the spiritual birth of a new creation; “a new heaven and a new earth,” symbolizing a new mind and a new heart, which being formed through the light of truth carries no negative and destructive energy; the soul reaching “enlightenment” or “perfection” in one lifetime.  This is the teaching of the Sacred Text of the west.

The east is associated with the spirit, and the mind. The west is associated with the word, and the heart.  Spirit and Word, which constitutes christ; the healing power of the heart.  East and West

You have probably heard the expression “mind, body, soul” or “mind, body, soul, and spirit.”  The truer or more complete expression would be “mind, heart, body,” as these make up the soul: the vital principle in man credited to the faculty of thought, emotion, and action.  Through the application of the healing process given to us in the Holy Bible, our thoughts and emotions are transformed, made pure, our actions following, as Jesus taught us through his cup and platter parable, instructing us to clean the inside of the cup and platter so the outside of them becomes clean. The inside of the cup symbolizes the thoughts of our mind and the inside of the platter symbolizes the emotions/beliefs of our heart. If they are made pure, our actions will be pure; finding a healthy balance.  “The last Adam was made a quickening spirit…” The “spirit” is the power or energy that works through the mind, heart, and body; through the soul.  The word “quickening” means “to (re-)vitalize, make alive, give life.” Through this transformation process the holy spirit is revitalized. And with the revitalization of our portion of God’s holy spirit comes the regeneration of God’s word (Matthew 19:28), which forms our new heaven and earth, the word regeneration meaning the act or process of creating anew.  As man enters the third day, he is given one last opportunity to revitalize his holy spirit through the conception of truth in his heart, returning it to the pure state in which it was received at birth.  A new mind and a new heart equates to a new soul, in which dwells a new spirit (Psalms 51:10).  A new soul formed inside of this old body, as opposed to the eastern belief of an old soul entering a new body.

“Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? … Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias (Elijah) and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets… Matthew 16:13, 14.  But I say unto you, “Elias is come already,” which was for the benefit of the Jewish scribes, who understood that Elijah must come before Messiah, the “two witnesses” of “spirit and word” throughout biblical history being Moses and Aaron, Joshua and Caleb, Elijah and Elisha, and John and Jesus.  Jesus is teaching us that it is not the soul, which is unique to each person that returns.  It was not the soul of Elijah that returned, but the spirit of Elijah, which rested upon John the Baptist, while Jesus possessed the spirit of Elisha.  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 said, “I am the resurrection.”   So now, through the Word of God, we understand that it is not the soul that takes on a new body, but a body that takes on the spirit of one that has come before.  During a past-life regression, my sister saw herself as Queen Sheba. She took it to mean literally, when in truth, it was the spirit or idiomatic expression of Queen Sheba she took on.  Any knowledge of a past life should be used to understand the past of this life.

WORLD SIGNS in the END TIMES

8803679ac0fe20bb05080dd5eb167e9fWe 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, coinciding with the spiritual “era of Jacob,” which the world entered with the new millennium.  It is important that we understand the spiritual message encoded 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, 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 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,” who are demonstrating 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 man. Ishmael and Isaac, two sons, 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 man.

“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” symbolize 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— 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, symbolizing the presence of God.   Israel’s symbol is the star of David, the six points representing 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 with the new millennium, we must now fight against the spiritual bear by fighting against the unrighteous word of our own heart.  If man continues in his 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 being the power of resurrection, will bring about a resurrection of truth from within our heart.  

“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 spiritual essence 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 a just a few of the WORLD SIGNS in these END TIMES.

LINEAGES OF MATTHEW & LUKE

OpenBible2The two lineages are the same for the 14 generations from Abraham to David. Then, the Matthew lineage takes us through the kings of Judah, while the Luke lineage goes through another line. But there were never to be kings in the first place. Israel rejected God as ruler over them when they rejected God’s mouthpiece, Samuel, meaning heard of God, demanding a king like the other nations, so God gave them Saul, the first king of Israel. God would later rend the kingdom from Saul and give it to David.  It is after David that the lineages diverge.  The Matthew lineage goes from David to Solomon, and the Luke lineage from David to Nathan, both sons by Bathsheba.

The reign of David is the type-and-shadow of the Messianic reign. The reign of Solomon is the reign of religious Christianity that followed the Messianic reign. Solomon had many strange women, representing the many strange (flesh or carnal minded) doctrines of religious Christianity. The majority of the kings of Judah do evil, with a good king periodically entering in to try to turn things around, but to no avail.

“Judah’s last prophet, told Zedekiah, Judah’s last king, that the people of Judah were to submit to the king of Babylon and serve him seventy years, after which time they would return to the holy city Jerusalem… But Zedekiah would not heed Jeremiah’s advice. He refused to submit to the king of Babylon, which would have saved his life, the life of his people, and Jerusalem. Zedekiah’s eyes were put out, and he was carried into Babylon where he died in prison.  In refusing to admit to our confusion we are left blinded to the truth, bound by our prison of lies, iniquity, or sin, the wages of which is death; death with regard to the full potential of our soul.  We are going into Babylon, whether we go willingly or forced by the circumstances of our reality.”   —THE BIBLE DECODED

It is after they are carried into Babylon that the two lineages come back together for two generations. The first son born after entering Babylon is Salathiel, meaning I have asked God.  This is where we return to a direct communication with God, which takes place when we humble ourselves by admitting we are confused. His son is Zorobabel, meaning, descended of (i.e. from) Babylon.  Then the lineages diverge again until they both return to Joseph.

What has led Jews into Babylon, and what has led Christians into Babylon, are different, so the path or generations back to Joseph will differ.  Both lineages go through Judah; through Pharez, meaning, breach, and therein lies the problem.

“For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph’s.” 1 Chronicles 5:1

Judah prevailed above Israel as seen in her first king, Rehoboam, which means “a people has enlarged,”  But the birthright was Joseph’s. Both camps, Jews and Christians (the Judah of today) have forfeited their spiritual birthright by skipping over the spiritual works, which has caused this breach or gap. To receive the birthright, they will both have to return to Joseph, as both lineages do. Judas is Greek for Judah, who bought a field with the reward of iniquity.  What is counted as iniquity for the Jews is revealed through the prophet Isaiah (1:13,14).  What is counted as iniquity for the Christians is the doctrine of Paul, the Saul of the New Testament. The 12 generations from Salathiel to Christ represents the spiritual judgment that brings us to the spiritual christ, through which we become true worshippers, worshipping God in spirit and in truth

“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.”  John 4:23

The generations should have gone through Jacob’s son, Joseph, not through Judah, which is why both generations go back to Joseph, the father of Jesus through the power of adoption.  All that came in-between; from Judah, the son of Jacob to Jesus, the son of Joseph, shows us our disobedience, and God’s mercy, who gave us David, a man after God’s own heart, who came to turn the heart of the people back to God.  But we are a stubborn and stiff-necked people, which was said of the children of Israel, chosen to represent us the people.

GOD’S WILL

Gods_willGod’s will was and is Creation.  God made heaven and earth through His Power.  Being made in the image of God we have the power to form 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.  It was not made according to God’s instruction.  It was not formed in the light of truth, but in the darkness of naïveté.    

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness…”  Isaiah 5:20


“We have all called evil good, putting darkness for light by mistaking lies for truth, causing us to make wrong decisions throughout our life, which brought woe, meaning misery.  We have pushed the negative and destructive energy of painful memories down into the darkness of the subconscious mind.  It is time to bring that which is in darkness into the light, so the negative and destructive energy can be transformed into positive and constructive or creative energy.”   

THE BIBLE DECODED: breaking the ancient code; “The Two Kingdoms”


Through a spiritual transformation, an overview of which is encoded in the creation story, we form a new heaven and a new earth,” through which our first heaven and earth passes away.  This is God’s Will! 

While we are on the subject of God’s will, let’s talk about this “God willing” expression used by the peoples of religion. 

Is this not saying that whatever happens, whatever the outcome, good or evil (desirable or undesirable, pleasant or unpleasant, joy or sorrow), is God’s will?  And what if what happens falls under the latter?  Are we calling God, Who is good, evil?   According to the Prophet Isaiah, the misery we bring into our life is the consequence of us calling evil good; of us mistaking lies for truth.  According to the Prophet Jeremiah, our word is our burden, the cause of the unpleasant things we experience in our life.  Our word is the sum of our false religious and personal beliefs.  When we say, “God willing,” we place the burden on God.  If the outcome is one of pain and sorrow, it’s God’s doing, not ours.  This is a perversion of God’s Word, which teaches that the burden is ours, it’s our doing.             

“And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask thee, saying, What is the burden of the LORD? thou shalt then say unto them, What burden?  I will even forsake you, saith the LORD.  And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his house… And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man’s word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.”  Jeremiah 23:33,34,36

We are responsible for what we bring into our life.  As God’s word formed heaven and earth, which was good, our word formed our first heaven and earth, which was not so good.  But we have power to bring joy and peace into our life through a new creation.  This is God’s Will! 

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away…   And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”  Revelation 21:1,4

The reward for doing the spiritual (mental and emotional) works that results in the creation of  “a new heaven and a new earth,” symbolizing “a new mind and a new heart,” our thoughts, emotions, and actions made pure.  Salvation through creation. 

This is God’s Will for us!

THE BIRTH OF JESUS

Birth of JesusThere is quite a lot of speculation as to when Jesus was born.  The Christian religion teaches that Jesus was born on December 25th. Messianic Jews favor a date that ties in with one of the fall Feasts, such as the Feast of Trumpets or Feast of Tabernacles.  There are also a few spring predictions out there.

Let’s start with what Jesus is.  Jesus is the seed of God (Luke 8:11).  God is called the husbandman,  which means gardener.  A gardener plants his seed in early spring.  Let’s assume God planted His spiritual seed into the physical womb of Mary the first day of spring, the March equinox beginning on March 20th.  The flesh that would house this spiritual seed takes forty weeks to form, putting the birth on precisely December 25th.

A December 25th date puts Jesus among the many other gods believed to be born on this day: Buddha, Krishna (eastern gods), Mithras (Roman god), Quetzalcoatl (Aztec god), Hercules (Greek god), Tammuz (Sumerian god), Horus and Osiris (Egyptian gods). This is where we need to look at the customs and practices of the people that worship these gods. The custom of the Egyptians was to be buried with their most valued earthly possessions, which they believed would go with them into the afterlife.  Certainly not a concept of Jesus, who taught us not to put value on earthly possessionsThe reason we should not group Jesus with the eastern gods is because the practices of the east are mind-body disciplines. Jesus advocated for a heart discipline, which brings us to the Aztecs, who sacrificed human hearts to their gods.  Clearly, not a concept of Jesus, who taught on the spiritual sacrificing of the impurities of the heart.

For the spiritually-minded, the birth of Jesus is not about a literal day, but about a spiritual event– the birth of truth from within the heart.  When seed is planted in the earth, symbolizing the heart, the life in the seed (John 1:4) is regenerated through its conception, which through the process of time brings forth.  Maybe our time would be better spent thinking about the conception and birth or resurrection of God’s spiritual seed from within our heart instead of on the birth of the physical body that housed the spiritual seed, which is why Jesus would not have been born on December 25th, a date that fits the sowing of physical seed, rather than the conception of spiritual seed, which Jesus was.  https://www.ucg.org/the-good-news/biblical-evidence-shows-jesus-christ-wasnt-born-on-dec-25

The word resurrection comes from the word an-as-tas-is, meaning, a moral recovery of spiritual truth.  This is the only birth of Jesus that truly matters. It is the Christian religion that is responsible for the way so many people think about the birth of Jesus.  And religious Christmas songs like, “Come let us adore him…” doesn’t help, taking our mind off of the spiritual and putting it on the physical.  Christians say they believe in Jesus, which is to believe at a mind level. They adore the physical aspect of God’s holy seed.  But adoration for the spiritual aspect of Jesus requires us to believe on a heart level through spiritual works; works that have nothing to do with proclaiming we love Jesus with our mouth, or from within our mind.  Let us think about the birth of Jesus in the context of what his birth symbolizes.  There is not enough information to determine exactly when Jesus was born in the flesh.  But there is enough information to determine how the spiritual seed of God is conceived in our own flesh.

“Now Maccabeus and his company, the Lord guiding them, recovered the temple and the city: But the altars which the heathen had built in the open street, and also the chapels, they pulled down. And having cleansed the temple they made another altar, and striking stones they took fire out of them, and offered a sacrifice after two years, and set forth incense, and lights, and shewbread.  When that was done, they fell flat down, and besought the Lord that they might come no more into such troubles; but if they sinned any more against him, that he himself would chasten them with mercy, and that they might not be delivered unto the blasphemous and barbarous nations.  Now upon the same day that the strangers profaned the temple, on the very same day it was cleansed again, even the five and twentieth day of the same month, which is Casleu. And they kept the eight days with gladness.” 2 Maccabees, Chapter 10, verses 1-6. 

Casleu/Chislev/Kislev: Jewish month; (ninth in ecclesiastic year), December 25th, the day the heathen profaned the temple.  The word profane means lacking due respect. Understanding that the temple symbolizes the heart is giving it its due respect, the temple cleansed through the removal of its impurities or abominations (Matthew 15:19; Proverbs 26:25).  The birth of truth (Jesus) requires a pure heart (virgin), something to consider every year on the “five and twentieth day” of December.

CHRISTMAS TREE PROPHECY

Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen,Christmas Tree and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.  For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.”   Jeremiah 10:2-4 

The word heathen means Gentile.  It was 300 years after Christ before the Roman church kept Christmas, and not until the fifth century that it was mandated to be kept throughout the empire as an official festival honoring “Christ.”  However, it is not Christ that is being honored through this tradition, but Paul, upon whose teachings the Roman church was built, which is why Paul is called Apostle to the Gentiles

THE CICADA SIGN

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
