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.

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.

THE 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 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.  Babylon the Great. 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 among the super-spreaders. Religion has contributed greatly to the cause of the virus, the iniquity of the Christian Religion (founded upon the teachings of Paul, not Jesus,) spreading exponentially, which is now, in what is the spiritual era, the cause of 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.  Matthew 16:6

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 spiritual “era of Jacob,” in which we are to worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24), 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, which includes the lies we speak to ourselves, about ourselves, in our own mind, on a conscious and subconscious level.  We must repent when it comes to our religious and personal beliefs, which is to think differently about what we have been taught, replacing our iniquities with truth.  Until we do, we are counted among the spreaders of this deadly virus.

There must be a drastic change in the way we think, 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, whose name was changed to Paul, meaning little, a derivative of the primary verb meaning stop, come to an end.  Paul is the source of the religious iniquity of Christianity.  To stop the virus, we must stop the iniquity. 

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

CHRISTIANITY: THE CURSE UPON AMERICA’S FREEDOM

downloadAmerica was founded upon spiritual principles or truths, our Founding Fathers divinely inspired by The Holy Bible.  

Principle: a basic truth, which applies to both the physical and the spiritual.
Foundation: the basis on which a thing stands, is founded, or is supported.

The Declaration of Independence” proclaims as a self-evident truth the First Principle.  That “all men are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  

We were all created in the image of God, as it is written,

“Let us make man in our image; after our likeness.”   

The image of God is His Spirit and His word, truth, Jesus personified, through which we obtain life and liberty, as it is written, 

“In him was life… the truth shall make you free.”   

Spirit and truth, the two-fold power we have all have been endowed with by our Creator, through which we obtain true happiness, should we choose to pursue it.   The Founding Fathers formed the government of America, “the land of the free,” after the likeness of God.  But to continue to be the land of freedom for the World, the people must be governed by God’s Spirit, and obedient to God’s word, the two divine attributes of the Creator.   

Christianity:  the religion derived from Jesus Christ.  Derived: of, or pertaining to. 

The Christian religion was not derived from Jesus Christ.  It was derived from the teachings of Paul.   Apostle Peter wrote the following about Apostle Paul in his letter to Clement:

“bad instruction, vain boasting, and other such evils have filled the whole house of this world like some enormous smoke preventing those who dwell in it from seeing the Founder aright.” 

Peter goes on to say that Paul is the source of these errors, and that his visions deluded him. (Recognitions of Clement 1.15).  The following is a quote from one of the seven Founders pertaining to this man-made religion:

Christianity is the most perverted system that ever shone on man. …Rogueries, absurdities and untruths were perpetrated upon the teachings of Jesus by a large band of dupes and importers led by Paul, the first great corrupter of the teaching of Jesus.”  – Thomas Jefferson. 

It was most likely this insight that gave rise to Jefferson’s “Wall of Separation between Church and State,” which Jesus spoke to, saying,

“Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.” 

The Founders saw the danger in mixing government with religion, symbolized by the iron and clay in the Book of Daniel:

“… they shall not cleave one to another, even as the iron is not mixed with clay”   Daniel 2:43  

Thomas Paine, considered by some to be a Founding Father, said this:

“All this [Paul’s writing] is nothing better than the jargon of a conjurer who picks up phrases he does not understand to confound the credulous people who come to have their fortune told.”  

The Founders were deists: one who believes in the existence of a personal God, but in few or none of the doctrines of the Christian religion. 

Christianity was founded upon the conjured, carnal-minded teachings of Paul, not upon the spiritual teachings of Jesus. In destroying the spiritual principles and truths upon which America was founded, Christians are unwittingly giving power to a government that will destroy what America stands for, which is FREEDOM!

SOCIALISM: THE SCOURGE OF AMERICA

scourge: a whip used to inflict punishment.

“The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.” Genesis 49:10 

sceptre: a scion, i.e. (lit.) a stick for punishing.

The Holy Bible provides us with a record of our political, religious, and spiritual histories.  God’s Word is the same yesterday, today, and forever.  So we can see where we are headed by looking at where we have been.  Let’s start with our governmental history, going back to the point at which we departed from God’s Word, which is revealed to us through the children of Israel, chosen to represent us the people.  They are being led by Samuel meaning heard of God, who had a direct communication with God.  But the children of Israel wanted to be like the other nations, choosing to have a king rule them instead of God, which spoke through the mouth of Samuel, who describes the burdensome manner in which this king would rule his people.  But they demanded it, and so they were given Saul, meaning to demand.  How Saul rules the people (1 Samuel 8:6-20) shows us not only how religion rules its people, but how the government, under socialism, will rule its people, the two systems being of one, symbolized by the iron mixed with the clay in the Book of Daniel.  Religion requires the people to pay 10% of their income to the Church.  Under Socialism, the people will be required to pay 70% or more of their income to the Government.  

What is giving power to these self-serving systems is laziness and greed. The people of religion are too lazy to judge themselves, like the children of Israel, who wanted a king to judge them.  The proponents of socialism want something for free, which they do not deserve because they have not worked for it, the definition of greed: a rapacious desire for more than one needs or deserves. Rapacious: taking things by force; plundering (looting), which is taking place in cities across America. 

God’s Word teaches us that we are to enjoy the fruits of our labor, not someone else’s labor.  In this, Socialism stands directly opposed to God’s Word, as does the Christian religion, which teaches that someone else carries the burden of our labor. 

“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.”  Jeremiah 23:34  

It is not only man’s greed and laziness that is giving power to Socialism.  It is this demand for equality: the state or quality of being equal.  But in the end, as the history of Socialism teaches us, the people are not made equally rich, but equally poor.  Only the institutions, governmental and religious, and those that run them, are made rich.  Fast forward a thousand years from the time of Saul, when the descendants of the children of Israel, the Jews, rejected the word of God, spoken through Jesus.  The Christians followed suit, unwittingly rejecting the teachings of Jesus by buying into the teachings of yet another Saul, called Paul, whose doctrine of lies has created spiritual laziness and greed in so-called believers.   The name might have been changed, but the spirit has not.  Laziness and greed, spreading rapidly, the physical revealing the spiritual. 

The kingdom was rent from Saul and given to David. Two very different kings.  Two very different spirits.  Two very different teachings.  Paul taught that salvation is a gift, not something you have to work for.  Jesus taught that salvation is our reward for doing the works, the gift being the spiritual power through which the spiritual works are completed, which is salvation.  We all have the ability and right to use this spiritual power— spiritual equality, the most important equality of all.  It is the spiritual ointment that David spoke of, which will bring unity among the brethren (Psalms 133).  Socialism does just the opposite, creating division in order to obtain its objective, which is total control over the people.  Divide and Conquer.  Socialism is luring the people in by offering them salvation without works, which is directly opposed to God’s Word, and therefore opposed to the Spiritual Principles upon which America was founded.

The word salvation means help. The word saved means deliver, protect, heal, save (self), be (make) whole.  We are to save ourselves, “pull ourselves up by our bootstraps.”  Not look to someone else to save us, which will only end up enslaving us.  Salvation requires works on the part of the one obtaining it.   America must now do what it takes to save Herself from Socialism, which is using Race to divide us, and Reparations to ensure its success.   Reparations: compensation in money or materials given to one nation for damages caused by another nation through its hostilities, which (in this case) is slavery. 

Slavery is an outward expression of an inward condition

It appears there is equality in slavery as well.  The fair-skinned Israelites were enslaved by the dark-skinned Egyptians for 390 years, nearly the same amount of time blacks were enslaved by the whites in America.  Coincidence?  I think not!   Reparations appeal to the greed in the heart of man.  The Red Man, the embodiment of God’s Spirit, tells us that greed is “the sickness of man’s heart,” causing an imbalance in the earth.  An imbalance that is releasing a negative and destructive energy, manifesting in the form of bigger and more powerful storms and earthquakes.  The Word of God teaches us that greed, the love of money, is the root of all evil.  As the root gives life to the plant, greed gives life to the evil.  Jesus said, 

Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.” 

Socialism, the ideology of which stands in opposition to God’s Word, is an evil plant that must not be allowed to take root in the Country that stands for Freedom!  Socialism is the scourge of America; a whip used to inflict punishment, under which we will all be treated as slaves. 

“The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.”  Genesis 49:10


“The word sceptre means a scion, i.e. (lit.) a stick for punishing.  As long as we remain under the spirit of Judah, we remain under its punishment, which is manifesting itself in the form of terrorism and oppression.  The feet symbolize the age of Pisces, synonymous with the era of Isaac, and with the reign of Judah.   We have left this era chronologically, but we will remain under its tyranny until we drive the impurities out of our heart, through which we bring in Shiloh, meaning to be tranquil, secure, successful, be happy, prosper, be in safety.  Those that reach this state will have entered the ark of the covenant, the ark of safety, abiding in God’s protection, safe from the flood of evilness that is quickly rising upon the earth— and upon the heart.”

THE BIBLE DECODED: breaking the ancient code; “Judah of the Gentiles”

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SON

OpenBible2

The son symbolizes the seed or word of God (Luke 8:11).  All things are made by a seed (John 1:3). God’s physical creation was made by His word (Genesis 1:3). The Holy Bible begins with the creation of a physical heaven and earth and ends with the creation of a spiritual heaven and earth. 

The physical creation was made when God spoke His word, the sowing of His seed in the earth.   Our spiritual creation is made when God’s sows His spiritual seed in our heart.

The instruction for this spiritual creation is encoded in the beginning and end of the book of Genesis, which means creation; an instruction the children of Israel, chosen to represent us the people failed to comprehend, having eyes that could not see and ears that could not hear.  So God sowed His seed in another mother; in the womb of Mary, her son providing us with the instruction for this spiritual creation through his word.  Jews and Muslims (the seed of Abraham in the literal sense) deny the son.  The fact that Muslims reject the idea of the Creator having a son makes perfect sense because the Holy Quran does not refer to Allah as Father. But it also reveals the carnal mind, which cannot comprehend how something that is spiritual (Allah) could produce something that is physical (Jesus).  Yet, isn’t that the pattern of creation itself.  Something that is unseen (Spirit) producing something that is seen (matter)?  If Muslims believe that Allah is the Creator of the heaven(s) and the earth, they unwittingly agree that Allah has a seed, the son symbolizing the seed by which all things are made.  The New Testament of the Holy Bible does refer to God as Father, and yet many Christians are still denying the Son literally, saying Jesus is God.  The Father is not the Son.  There is one God and one seed of God; Father and Son. The Holy Bible tells us that he that denies the Father and the Son is antichrist, which Jews, Muslims, and Christians are all guilty of in the literal sense, in one way or another.  But we are all antichrist in the spiritual sense as long as we are against christ; against the spiritual power through which we perform the spiritual works that results in our new spiritual creation. 

Jesus, the physical manifestation of the son or seed of God does not care if we believe in him. He wants us to “believe the works,” the word believe meaning to obey; put action to.  Christians say they believe in Jesus, but they do not obey the spiritual works that are synonymous with the son (John 10:36-38). Neither do Jews and Muslims.  Jews fail to obey the spiritual works by not observing the spiritual instruction found in the beginning and end of the first book of the Torah.  Muslims fail to perform the spiritual works because the Quran does not provide the instruction for these works. Christians fail to obey the spiritual works because they have been taught that Jesus did the works for them, which is a lie. There can be no creation without the son, which is the seed, by which all things are made.  We have already made a creation, but through an unholy seed called the son of perdition. This unholy creation is called “the first heaven and earth,”  which is to pass away.  What is to take its place is a holy creation, made through God’s seed or son, which is called “a new heaven and a new earth”  (Revelation 21:1).  Abraham had two sons.  Ishmael and Isaac.  The son symbolizes both the seed and the word of God, through which the physical heaven and earth was made. Both the Holy Bible and the Holy Quran are considered to be the literal Word of God or Allah. However, the Holy Quran does not contain the instruction for our new spiritual creation as it does not teach on the spiritual meaning of the son.  It only goes as far as to say that Mary had a son, and that like Muhammed, that son was no more than a Prophet.  But now we understand the importance of the son!

ANCIENT ALIENS

The following was inspired by History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens” series, providing us with an explanation as to who they were according to the ancient spiritual knowledge given to us in the Holy Bible. Were they ancient aliens or were they divine humans?

WHO WERE THEY?

THEY were humans, possessing the same divinity as the first Adam; the first of his kind, made a spiritual being, made in the image of God, with spiritual abilities and godly intelligence.  THEY reached the highest degree, becoming the finest example of human kind while on this earth. THEY experienced a spiritual creation during their time here on earth, through which they took on the same divine attributes of the first Adam, giving them spiritual abilities and godly intelligence in the afterlife. They became the last Adam with regard to the spiritual energy that existed in their human flesh bodies at the time of their death; a quickening spirit.  Adam, the creation of the seventh day, is not to be confused with the creations of the sixth day; other human-like kinds, varying in beastly appearance, symbolizing the beastly stages in man’s spiritual devolution. The first Adam became a human being through the adding of physical flesh. The last Adam becomes a spiritual being through the removal of spiritual flesh through a spiritual circumcision. THEY are those who overcame that which formed this flesh that cannot be seen, restoring a spiritual energy that cannot be measured, becoming pure spirit with regard to their spiritual essence while still living in their physical flesh body.

WHY DID THEY COME?

THEY desired to come back to the place of their physical existence, where they had received, and applied the spiritual knowledge left by their ancient ancestors, encoded in our sacred texts, ancient writings, encrypted in our ancient ruins, understood by those whose motivations were pure. THEY followed the ancient instruction, completing the spiritual works, receiving the spiritual seed; receiving the highest degree of spiritual life in the spiritual realm— an existence without limitation.  THEY go where they want, when they want, at will.  THEY are time-travelers, having the ability to go forward and backward in time, having power over the physical laws of the third dimension, demonstrated by the second Adam, who walked on water and raised the dead.

WHAT DID THEY LEAVE BEHIND?

THEY left behind spiritual knowledge, the Holy Bible being the source of this knowledge, its mysteries opened up through an understanding of its symbolic code, which has preserved this knowledge for what the Bible calls “the end of days.”  Our ancient ruins, through the measures found within their very construction, stand as monuments to this spiritual truth. The number 72 is found in the construction of the Forbidden City, the number 144 in the construction of the Great Pyramid, referring to spiritual measures of the Mind and Heart.  As The Holy Bible has been misinterpreted, so too has the knowledge left behind in the form of symbols engraved on our ancient ruins. It was never about sacrificing human hearts and innocent children, demonstrating a beastly obedience to a carnal interpretation. The spiritual knowledge of God’s Word instructs us to sacrifice the spiritual impurities of our own heart, which are responsible for destroying the pure essence that existed in us as children, impurities that limit us in this life, and in the afterlife.

WHERE DID THEY GO?

THEY went wherever they wanted to go, having no mental or physical limitations, able to move through three states (spirit-glorified-physical) at will, needing no physical mode of transportation. There are two distinct types of beings in the Holy Bible.  In the story of Abraham, we have three men, appearing and disappearing as if into thin air.  We find this quality or ability in the story of Enoch, who was, and then was not.  They became spiritual beings in the afterlife by removing all spiritual flesh in this life, their mode of transportation being their minds. Then we have Ezekiel, who describes what appears to be a flying object.  And although for some, there is compelling evidence of beings arriving in flying objects, there is no concrete evidence of such.  We have a choice.  Go the way of science and the mind.  Or go the way of spirituality and the heart.  Being made in the spiritual image of God, we have an innate desire to understand and experience the things of the spirit; the things we cannot see.  One can use science to measure sound and vibration, some using the science of sound to experience states of consciousness (an activity of the mind). Mantras and prayers fall under this level of sound and vibration. Then there is a sound that cannot be heard, and a vibration that cannot be felt, taking place at a sub-conscious level (an activity of the heart).  Two distinct paths.  One through the mind.  The other through the heart.  Only one leads back to our spiritual origin of spiritual abilities and godly intelligence.  Only one path removes the invisible flesh that limits us in this life, and will limit us in the afterlife.

WILL THEY RETURN?

For what purpose?  To teach us some great spiritual truth?  THEY already have, demonstrating their spiritual abilities and godly intelligence through their very constructions, astounding the learned minds of our time.  Maybe we should consider that it is not about the ancients returning to us, but about us returning to the ancients; to the ancient instruction THEY left behind for us to follow, encoded in our ancient sacred texts and ancient ruins, through which we ourselves can become the gods we seek to understand; the divine beings the Holy Bible says existed in former ages.

“Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?  If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; [why] Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?  If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.”  

The instruction through which one becomes a god.

THE 144,000

OpenBible2We find this number in the Book of Revelation; a revelation for mankind, which came from Jesus through John.

“And I heard the number of them which were sealed; and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of Israel.”  Revelation 7:4

The word sealed means to stamp (with a signet or private mark (for security or preservation), referring to a spiritual security or preservation.

“And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.”  Genesis 32:30 

It is our spiritual life that is preserved, through which we enter an invisible wall of protection, the measure of which is 144.

“And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.”  Revelation 21:17. 

How does man reach this spiritual measure of 144?   By obeying Jesus’ instruction pertaining to the twelve tribes of Israel:

“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 word regeneration means anew; the process of forming again, referring to the forming of a new creation from within, “a new heaven and a new earth,” symbolizing a new mind and a new heart, through which “the first heaven and the first earth” (formed in a darkness we mistook for light; through lies we mistook for truth) passing away through the process.

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away.”  Revelation 21:1

The twelve tribes of Israel are neither lost nor extinct, but existing within us in the form of positive and negative aspects.  We are to judge the negative aspects of the tribes, which is to overcome them. The number twelve represents judgment, as we see in our own judicial system.  Judging the 12 tribes of Israel formulates to 12 x 12, which equals 144,

“the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

An angel is a messenger. Those that hear, through obedience, the message of the angel of the first 6 churches in the book of Revelation, reach the spiritual measure of 144.   As God’s physical creation was formed through 6 days of works (not to be taken literally), our new spiritual creation is formed through 6 (metaphorical) days of (spiritual) works.  A day is 24 hours, 6 days formulating to 6 x 24, which equals 144.  These spiritual works are the works of the spiritual judgment that is to take place within us— the act of overcoming all of our false religious and personal beliefs.

Those that reach the spiritual measure of 144 by executing God’s spiritual judgment upon themselves, enter the 1,000-year reign of Christ: 144 + 1,000 = 144,000.

“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them…  and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years…”  Revelation 20:7.  

The reign of Christ begins within the individual when christ (spirit and word; love and truth) rules their mind and heart.  These make up the 144,000 mentioned in chapter seven of the book of Revelation.  Notice that the tribe of Dan is not listed among the tribes.  That is because the word Dan means judge, and the 144,000 have already judged themselves

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 to another.  From the carnal “era of Isaac” to the spiritual “era of Jacob”; a transition that was illustrated two thousand 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 demonstrated for us while he was on this earth.  But mankind has not been performing these spiritual works for the past two thousand, 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 more wars 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” (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” (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 our heart; the son symbolizing the word of God, which is truth, revealing 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.

OLD AGE & NEW AGE BELIEFS

OpenBible2A revelation I received in 2004.

Having spent a considerable amount of time on Christian and Spiritual message boards for the past three and a half years, I began to see parallels between those of old age or mainstream Christianity and those of new age Christianity.  Those of the old age were claiming to be born again and saved.  Those of the new age were saying the same thing, but in a different language, claiming they were already spirit and perfect, they just had to remember it, and believe it.  While one group claimed to have the Holy Spirit, which is to say you have the Power of God, the other group claimed they were God.  And both groups showed little respect for the earth.  The one waiting to be whisked away in what they call the rapture, escaping the evil literally, the other calling the earth an illusion, escaping its evil through the power of their mind, denying that evil even exists, calling anything negative and destructive, such as disease, an illusion.  After seeing these parallels, I asked before going to sleep one night, “Lord, Why the parallels between these two groups of people?” 

I awoke to the words, “It’s the two gold calves the king of Israel set up in Dan and Bethel.  It’s the same image; an old religious belief in a new age wrapping.” 

I understood the symbolism in the biblical story immediately.  And as time went by, I began to fully understand why it had come about.  For over fifteen hundred years now, the children of God have been humiliated and browbeaten by religion, stripped of their self-worth and self-esteem, stripped of their authentic power, controlled by fear.  Many of these children of God left the religious system in a very down-trodden emotional state, which made them overly susceptible to a belief that would make them feel good about themselves, their hearts eager to take on a belief that would tell them they were okay, they were not sinners bound for hell.  It was the perfect time for the arrival of a new belief, one that would tell them what they so desperately wanted, and needed to hear.  This belief helped them change the way they thought about themselves, gently patting them on the back, telling them they were perfect just the way they were.  This belief would also teach them that there was no such thing as evil, and that the world that had hurt them so badly was just an illusion, a dream, so they could set their mind at rest; they could be at peace in their mind.  This childish belief, while serving in part to help the children regain their self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth, was causing the children of God to push the boundaries, as children do.  They were taking it too far, impatiently proclaiming a spiritual state that can only be reached through spiritual works that change the heart.

The Church told them they had sin, but in the wrong spirit, and with no truthful word of instruction on how to purify themselves.  When one walks away from a religious belief, it is important to understand that the same emotional energy that gave power to the old belief is carried over, transferred to the new belief, which in this case was no different than the old belief, just spoken in a different language.  In both cases, the spiritual works that transform the negative and destructive energy of the heart into positive and constructive or creative energy are not being performed.  These two beliefs are one and the same, one existing at each end of a linear line.  Bringing the two ends together through their parallels reveals that they are at the same point or place; having the same state of mind— deluded, their erroneous beliefs powered by what the Bible calls the energy of delusion,” providing the mind with a false peace that acts as a wall, separating the follower of such a belief from his own heart, which symbolized by the temple, is where we offer up the spiritual sacrifices that purify our heart.
