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 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.

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.

9/11 DECODED

Twin TowersThe following is a revelation I received over three days following the event. The two towers symbolize the two witnesses in the book of Revelation:

“And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city.” 

The great city, in the literal sense, is New York City.  In the early morning of September 12th 2001, I heard upon waking: “This is the opening of the sixth seal.” 

And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal… there was a great earthquake.”  Revelation 6:12. 

It was a great metaphorical earthquake that took place on September 11th, 2001.  It’s purpose?  To bring down the wall of false peace that is governing the mind of man.  The first in a series of catastrophic events.  At 8:46 am, a commercial jet was hijacked and flown into one of the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. Eighteen minutes later, another commercial jet was hijacked and flown into the second tower. Soon after that, another hijacked jet would be flown into the Pentagon, and at 10 am, a fourth hijacked jet crashed before hitting its target, the Capital, the Heart of our great nation. Thank God this was not accomplished.  In this is our hope!

The North Tower symbolizes the Spirit of God.
The South Tower symbolizes the Word of God.
The Pentagon symbolizes Protection.
The Capital symbolizes the Heart.

The external enemy that brought down the two towers was a radical lunatic fringe, those of the Arab nation, descendants of Ishmael, son of the bondmaid, symbolizing bondage.

“For it is written that Abraham had two sons, the one by the bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.” Galatians 4:22

But what continues to give power to these external enemies are the internal enemies of the mind. Two spiritual enemies, represented in two physical enemies: Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.  It was a foreign physical nation that terrorized our nation on September 11th, the manifestation of a negative and destructive spiritual nation ruling the mind of man; a terror hidden deep within, keeping us in the bondage; keeping us from being completely free.

“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 

Jerusalem is referred to as the Mother, exemplifying protection.  But it is important to note that Abraham had two sons by two mothers: Sarah the freewoman and Hagar the bondwoman.  The physical Jerusalem is far from freedom and peace.  She is in bondage, revealing the spiritual bondage of that spiritual Jerusalem called the heart.  This internal bondage is revealed through Rachel’s bondmaid, Bilhah, which means terror, the external terrorism generated by the terror or fear existing deep within; so deep within the psyche that most of us are still unaware of its existence.  Hagar is mount Sinai, where the children of Israel erected the gold calf, symbolizing the false images or beliefs that cause man to remain in spiritual bondage. These false beliefs are sin, the wages of sin, death, September 11th resulting in 2,997 deaths.

The two towers symbolize the Spirit and Word of God.  But man has chosen to follow his own spirit and word, giving power to their negative and destructive energies, manifesting in the physical through destructive events, wars, and catastrophic events that are increasing in size, intensity, and frequency.  These destructive events are not God’s doing.  They are man’s doing, as spoken by the prophet Jeremiah, “man’s word shall be his burden,” man’s word being the sum of his false beliefs.  It is time to take responsibility for what we are bringing upon ourselves through the power of our own word; through the negative and destructive power of our many false religious and personal beliefs.  Ishmael and Isaac, two brothers, existing without in the nation of Israel, as well as within.  The ongoing physical battle between the Israelis (descendants of Isaac) and the Palestinians (descendants of Ishmael) is a manifestation of the ongoing spiritual battle taking place within us, as was spoken by James, the brother of Jesus:

“From whence come wars and fightings among you? come thy not hence, even of the lusts that war in your members?”  James 4:1

Our members are our own mind and heart.  If we don’t get on with battling the enemy within, there will be more and more laws added without, until we are left with no freedom at all.  The real enemy lies hidden within, and as long as it remains hidden, the battle against evil can never be won, its negative and destructive energy continuing to bring death, destruction, sorrow, pain, and suffering.  The nation of Israel continues to fight for peace.  But there will be no peace in Jerusalem until there is peace in the Heart of man; a peace that comes through the purification of the Heart.

“To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord…” Ezekiel 13:16 

September 11th, 2001 was only the first in a series of calamities that will bring down the wall of false peace that keeps mankind from entering into his own heart.

“So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall…” Ezekiel 13:14 

The word Jerusalem means founded peaceful.  Will mankind continue to choose the bondage of false peace over the freedom of authentic peace?  What remains of the wall in Jerusalem is called the Wailing Wall, and on 911, a desperate cry for help rang out!  Ishmael, son of the bondwoman, means God will hear.  This is the first covenant, which begins to be fulfilled within when we cry out from our heart in our personal time of trouble to be delivered from our spiritual bondage, the source of our many physical bondages or addictions.  This cry is the beginning of our journey from bondage to freedom; the beginning of our spiritual birth.

“And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered… ”  Daniel 12:1

THE GODHEAD

 

Father Son Holy Spirit

The Principles of Creation.  The Foundation of Spiritual Truth.

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

“In the beginning God created heaven and earth.” Genesis 1:1.

To create is to have the thought.  Nothing has been made yet.

And the earth was without form… ”  

To bring heaven and earth into existence would take two things. 

And the Spirit of God moved… “And God said…”  Genesis 1:2,3 

Spirit and word.  Energy and seed.

“And the parable is this: the seed is the word of God.”  Luke 8:11

The two divine attributes of the Creator and Creation are symbolized in scripture by the “two witnesses,” and the “two olive trees” or “two olive branches,” which Moses and Aaron, Joshua and Caleb, Elijah and Elisha, and John and Jesus personified.

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness… male and female created he them.”  Genesis 1:26,27

We were physically made after this likeness when our father, sowed his seed, by his energy (male) in our mother (female), as God sowed His word, by His Spirit (male) in mother earth (female).  We are spiritually made in the image of God when the holy spirit sows the seed or word of truth in our heart.  We see the image of God in the Patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, representing the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  The Hebrew name for God is ELOHIM, revealing God’s image: EL = God the Father.  OH = the Son.  IM = the Holy Spirit; the I AM, revealing the Godhead.  Some Christians say there are three persons in the Godhead, while others say one, proclaiming Jesus is God.  The truth is, the three are of one, as God, spoke His word, through His Spirit.  And as man, sows his seed, through his energy.   

“In the beginning was the word, and the word was with the God, and a god was the word.”  John 1:1  (Original Greek translation)
“In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the Word was God.”  John 1:1  (King James translation)

“A god was the word” has been changed to “the Word was God,” an error in translation that has Christians calling Jesus God, through which they are unwittingly denying the Son.

“The same was in the beginning with God.”  John 1:2 

Jesus was with God in the beginning, being the seed through which the creation was made.  

“All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.”  John 1:3  

All things are made by a seed. When seed is sowed in the earth, as truth is sowed in the heart, it does not produce its fruit in a day. 

“… Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once?”  Isaiah 66:8

The words of the Prophet Isaiah, which admonish the teaching that we are born [again] the moment we accept Jesus into our heart.  The spiritual Jesus is the seed of God.  This elementary-level of acceptance is not the sowing of God’s seed or word of truth into that spiritual earth called the heart

“Is it not written in your law, I said, ye are gods. If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came… [why] say ye of him, Thou blasphemest because I said, I am the Son of God.?  If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not… thou you believe not me, believe the works…”  John 10:34-38 

Here, Jesus is teaching us that the works are synonymous with the son.  The way we bring fruit unto God, becoming a god or son, is through works.  Christians who follow the teachings of Paul are unwittingly rejecting the Son by omitting the spiritual works, which the Son finished, and instructed us to finish, saying, believe the worksthe word believe meaning to obey or put action to.  The works of a spiritual creation, which as gods, being made in the image of the God, we have the power to bring into existence. 

The word of God is the seed of God.  Having the seed of God makes one a god, not God.  In like manner, if the seed of the man is conceived in the womb of the woman, that seed becomes a son or daughter, not the father that sowed it.  Jesus is not God.  Blasphemy is to make oneself equal with God, or God’s power, which Jesus never did.  Jesus never said he was God.  There are two verses used to proclaim that Jesus is God.  The first, as discussed, a mistranslation. The second,

“I and my Father are one,”  John 10:30

a misunderstanding.  Jesus is not saying he is God.  He is saying that he and his Father are one with respect to the works of creation, God’s physical creation being a pattern or  instruction for the spiritual creation formed in us through spiritual works, which Jesus spoke of and demonstrated for us while he was on this earth. 

“ No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.”  John 1:18

But Jesus was seen, being the seed or word of God made flesh.  Jesus said he proceeded and came from God.  The seed proceeded from the Father, sowed in the womb of Mary. 

“…neither came I of myself, but he sent me”  John 8:42

The seed does not sow itself.  Energy or Spirit is needed to sow the seed, whether it be in the earth, or in the heart.  There are two fathers, two seeds, two energies, and two creations.  The good seed, sowed through holy spirit, is attributed to christ. The evil seed, sowed through unholy spirit, is attributed to antichrist. 

“… He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.”  1 John 2:22

One denies the Father and the Son literally by saying Jesus is God.  One denies the Father and the Son spiritually by omitting the spiritual works that are synonymous with the Son.  Christ is not Jesus’ surname. It is the spiritual power through which we perform these spiritual or internal works.  If we  have not been doing the works because we have been taught that Jesus finished them for us, we are antichrist; against the spiritual power needed for our new spiritual creation to come into existence. 

“ Ye are of your father the devil… When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”  John 8:44

Each of us acts as a spiritual father, having sowed spiritual seed through spiritual energy, in our spiritual mother.  We have all eaten of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, sowing good and evil seed in that spiritual earth called the heart.  In the process of time, the evil seeds choked out the good seed, as we learn from Jesus’ parables.  The unholy creation that has been formed in us is called “the first heaven and earth,” which passes away upon the formation of our holy creation, through six (metaphorical) days of (spiritual) works. 

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

The Godhead reveals the principles of creation, the foundation of all spiritual truth.
