END TIME: The Anti-Messiah Message. Do you know what it is?

While many are looking for the “Anti-Christ” to suddenly appear and scare the dickens out of the world, others are ridiculing the idea that an Anti-Christ will appear. Both views come from the same source: blindness and the apostasy!

What would happen if the world suddenly found out that there are very many anti-Messiah messengers active today? And what would they think if the real anti-Christ teachers started their great deception thousands of years ago, as a result of the split from the Jewish Apostles?

END TIME: Part 7 – Oil for the Seven Lamps

The word “apocalypsis” is the Greek name of the book of Revelation, from which we get our word apocalypse. Because the word is associated with the prophecies about the end of our age, many assume the word means “doom” or “destruction.”

But it does not. The word literally means “revelation” — a spiritual process where the Spirit opens our mind by dreams, direct contact, by meditation, visions, by whatever the Spirit finds best, to help us understand things we otherwise might not grasp. John the Apostle wrote:

The anointing, which you have received from Him, stays in you. And you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as the same anointing does teach you concerning all, and is true, and is not falsehood, and even as it has taught you, you stay in Him. And now, little children, stay in Him, so that when He appears, we might have boldness and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.
From I John 2

This Bible study series contains some very strong words for a special group of people symbolized by the Seven Lamps belonging to the one lampstand. Some translators of the Book of Revelation used “lampstand” or “candlestick” instead of “lamp” when translating this passage.

But a lamp in Greek is a vessel into which oil is poured, and it has a wick that brings the oil to the spout to burn and give light. It is not a candlestick, nor is the lamp the lampstand on which the lamps are placed.

Although some made a career of studying the Greek New Testament, it does have weaknesses, which most often show up in the translations. The use of the word candlestick or lampstand instead of lamp is one case. Greek is not a theological language, it is philosophical and forms a context for Western thought.

But these two chapters of Revelation can only be understood within the context of the Scriptures and Hebraic thought. Here is what I mean: The Law and the Prophets tell about the gold lampstand with its seven gold lamps:

END TIME: Part 6 – Rich and Need Nothing? (Revised)

The last or seventh assembly of people has been called out to receive spiritual knowledge and to receive the promises for overcoming their dangerous situation. All of the messages to the seven assemblies are not only age transcending but also “end time” or, more exactly for our time: the end of the seventh age. These called-out people have existed in every generation from the time of Adam!

[First] [Prior] [Next]

The time is at hand during which all who are among the called-out ones must act quickly to change any of their unprofitable works into works of righteousness. This Bible study shows that this last assembly could apply to millions of people or to only thousands. These are the people of Laodicea.

Even though these are names of congregations found cities in Asia Minor during the time John was told to write down the words of the Book of Revelation, means little to us. The words spoken to each are far more important than any meaning applied to a name, except “Philadelphia ” (a love for the brothers), which seems to fit the works of the “loners.”

In the prior post in this Bible study series I referred to the “congregation of Satan” who said they were “Jews” but lied. The most fitting application of that turned out to be the followers of Herbert W. Armstrong who out of necessity created the Worldwide Church of God. It appears as though their intentions may have been “pure” in their own eyes, but their, works, particularly of the ministry, showed otherwise.

Does this group belong to any of the assemblies of Revelation chapters two and three?

END TIME: Part 5: The Righteous, the Blind and the Cults

The last two assemblies or groups of called-out people are probably the most well-known and the least understood. In the previous posts on the promises to overcomers, I wrote how all the problems that threatened the people were spiritual and caused by religions.

[First] [Prior] [Next]

In this Bible study we will see those who remained unaffected by religion and those who created their own. Remember all groups or assemblies of people written about in chapters two and three of the Book of Revelation consist of people who had received the call. But again, “Many are called.”

Why someone would want to create their own religion is not a big mystery. The biggest reason is because they don’t want to have anything to do with the religions that afflicted the other groups. Their eyes may have been opened to the problems of the other groups. But instead of moving into truth, they adopted traditions and practices from sources unknown to the other groups or assemblies, and made those their own. To quote the SNL Church Lady, “How convenient!”

Looking around to see how others “worship” and adopting their ways has been and still is the biggest step to creating a nation doomed to spiritual failure. The Unites States and all of Western civilization are nations that have done that.

The most difficult task is to become humble as a person and as a nation and learn the truth by obtaining the spiritual connection with Elah [God] and Eyahuwah, the One called LORD in the scriptures. In other words, returning to the righteousness of our fathers, from Adam, through Enoch, Noah and his sons, the fathers of all who live today, and through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, if you can call them your fathers. Then you will learn the truth; your life will be changed; your future will be assured; and you will fear nothing. This is true for individuals. It is true for nations.

GOSPEL: Spirit Willing, but Flesh Weak? What to do?

Perhaps nothing can be more troublesome than finding our wishes and dreams betrayed by our own flesh. This is one of the most difficult trials of this life. We really want to live a spiritual life, but we find that our body and brain let us down. Is there a way to escape this conflict and come out the victor?

There are decisions we can make in life that start us on paths that are not good. This kind of living has made the news recently concerning both young and mature people living an “easy” and dangerous life. These are only prime examples of a kind of life that affects millions. They have money, friends, and can do what they want. This can lead to doing things that are anti-life. Drugs, alcohol abuse, out-of-control sex, and wild parties play a major role in bringing people down.

The Scriptures tell us to guard our path, to learn wisdom, and have understanding and knowledge and let them guide our way. But if we don’t follow this way, from a very early age, we can make mistakes from which we may never recover in this lifetime. Some may call this karma. It is more like what you sow, so shall you harvest.

The Scriptures use farming as an example of life. A sower can plant good seed and look forward to a good harvest. But if someone comes along and sows bad seed and weeds, then the harvest can be destroyed or overcome by the weeds. When that happens in life, a harvest of evil can mature later.

For they sow the wind, and reap the whirlwind. Hosea 8:7

You have ploughed wrongness, you have reaped unrighteousness. You have eaten the fruit of deception. Hosea 10:13

Where can we find good seed to sow in our life? And how can we recover from the evil after it had been sown? These are tough questions and require tough answers.

I wrote in another post about how all killing will be placed upon the religions we follow that came out of Babylon. “In her was found the blood of the prophets and of the set-apart ones, and all who have been killed on the earth.” Revelation 18:24. That is a very serious indictment, but when understood, it is very true.

The Christian religion, taking its cues from Paul, no longer takes the Law or Torah seriously. Rarely have they spent sufficient prayer and meditation in the Law to learn what it really does say. I have even heard preachers on the radio, TV and on the Internet tell the people that all the prophecies of the Old Testament were fulfilled and we should only read what Paul wrote. Absolute and deadly nonsense.

When we understand the Law, what it says and to whom it applies, suddenly the mind is open to what a righteous life is all about. But too often cults or sects arise and lacking understanding they try to impose their interpretation of the Law when they have absolutely no authority to do so.

The Law is not designed for only a select few people in some religious way. It applies to all who live and breathe. That includes everyone from the chief rulers of nations to the poorest person alive. There are Laws for rulers and for personal relationships. There are Laws for priests (Levites), too, and if we are not priests or Levites, these are not for us, except we can learn the spiritual meaning of these laws.

And that is where the problem is. Religion would not find a place in the Law, because the people were to be taught and helped by “Kings and Priests.” If these fail in their responsibilities, then all the rest of the populations suffers. And what makes the end result worse is when the duties of the priests are supplanted by the misguidings of religion.

“And now, O priests, this command is for you. If you do not hear and if you do not take it to heart, to give honor and respect to My Name,” says Eyahuwah of hosts, “I shall send a curse upon you, and I shall curse your blessings. And indeed, I have cursed them, because you do not take it to heart. See, I shall rebuke your seed and scatter dung before your faces, the dung of your festivals. And you shall be taken away with it.

“And you shall know that I have sent this command to you so that My covenant with Levi might continue,” says Eyahuwah of hosts. “My covenant with him was life and peace, and I gave them to him, to fear. And he feared Me and stood in awe of My Name.

“The Torah (Law) of truth was in his mouth and unrighteousness was not found on his lips. He walked with Me in peace, and turned many away from crookedness. For the lips of a priest should guard knowledge, and they seek the Torah from his mouth, for he is the messenger of Eyahuwah of hosts.”

“But you, you have turned from the way. You have caused many to stumble in the Torah. You have corrupted the covenant of Levi,” says Eyahuwah of hosts, “and I also, I shall make you despised and low before all the people, because you are not guarding My ways, and are showing partiality in the Torah.” Malachi 2:1-9

“What are we to do? Where are the priests? Where are those who can show us the way?”

Exactly!

The days of punishment are coming. The days of reckoning are at hand. Let [my people] know this. Because of the greatness of your your crookedness, the prophet is considered a fool, the ‘man of the Spirit’ is [thought] ‘mad,’ and great is the enmity. Elahim’s watchman over you, Ephraim [the Western Nations], is the prophet, but [you set] a trapper’s snare in all his paths. Enmity and hatred is against the House of his Elahim. They have deeply corrupted themselves. Hosea 9:7-9

We suffered in the past, suffer now, and will suffer in the future because of three things:

  1. The priests (Levites) abdicated their duties and their covenant with Eyahuwah.
  2. Religions, sects, and cults sprung up and taught the people another way and, in trying to hold on to the people, millions have been killed by them and their way.
  3. We do not listen to the instruction and help available in the Scriptures.

I received some horrific news a short time ago that a young man, a friend, had taken his own life. He was not a evil person. He was a genuine person who wanted to do right, but he made some mistakes that led him to try to solve his situation by stopping his life. He was troubled by this conflict of spirit against flesh.

My friend sought comfort and help from drugs, including Xanax, and the drugs took control. He could not escape the cravings of his own body. He wanted to do right, but he did not have the strength. The flesh was weak.

I don’t blame my friend for taking his life. It is sad, troubling, and not to be forgotten. The questions “Why?” and “What could we have done to prevent this?” cannot be answered by the “wisdom” of this world, because this world, sadly, does not know the Way!

My friend, like so many others, could no longer stomach this world and how his life and actions worked within it. His problems were pitted against the solutions he formulated in his mind. Perhaps he only saw that he could not overcome the weaknesses of his own flesh, and so he felt helpless. Instead of continually bringing frustration and anguish to those he loved, he felt that the only rational solution was to cut off the “offending member,” which in this case he felt was him. Whether this was an act courage or depression only he could say.

But there is good news!

According to the promises, he will be raised from the dead and given a new clean body and a fresh start on life. So will many other people who died as a result of the failure of those whose job was to “turn many away from crookedness.”

The great message of the gospel is the good news that people, like my friend, will be saved from the evil in this world. He will not be condemned and “sent to hell” as the Christian religions think fitting. Instead he will stand on his feet, in his next waking moment, and someone will be there to embrace him and tell him to come. He will be told that his suffering is over. His torment has passed. He can then enter into the Kingdom of his spiritual Father on earth. There he will find Kings and Priests who will help him to understand Life. He can build his own house, and no one will take it from him. He will plant vegetables, fruit trees, and flowers in his own gardens that he will enjoy and no thief will steal from him. He will be at peace. He will see his daughter and all the people he loved. He will live a very long and happy life. His joy will be greater than his sorrow ever was.

That is true not only for him, but for all. When we know the truth, it will set us free.

What can we do now?

We must make straight paths for our feet and not let ourselves be turned out of the Way. We must purify our bodies, and turn from anything that would destroy our hope. We must exercise wisdom in everything we do. We must seek for understanding and good knowledge that will provide clarity for all the decisions that we must make in this life. And we must look forward to our future with hope and assurance that the One who made the promises through our fathers and through the prophets will do exactly as He said He would. All of these things are available NOW from the Source of our Life.

But if we scoff and turn away from truth during this life, we face uncertainty in this life, frustration, suffering and trouble. NOT because there is a “mean” God someplace that wants to inflict pain and suffering, but rather because our own actions bring this on us. The Scriptures provide warnings and instructions that could save us now, if we listen and take action combined with fasting, prayer and meditation.

Wisdom calls aloud outside. She raises her voice in the broad places. At the head of the noisy streets she cries out, “How long, you simple ones, would you love simplicity, and scoffers delight in their scoffing, and fools hate knowledge?

“Turn at my reproof. See, I pour out my spirit on you. I make my words known to you. Because I called and you refused, I have stretched out my hand and no one inclined, and you spurned all my counsel and would not yield to my reproof.

“Let me also laugh at your calamity and mock when your dread comes, when your dread comes like a storm, and your calamity comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. Then let them call on me, but I will not answer. Let them seek me, but not find me.

“Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of Eyahuwah, they did not accept my counsel. They despised my reproof; therefore, let them eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own counsels. For the turning away of the simple slays them, and the complacency of fools destroys them.

“But whoever listens to me dwells safely and is at ease from the dread of evil.” Proverbs 1:20-33

END TIME: The Myth of the Rapture

There are a number of pages on the Internet regarding speculation that the “Rapture” may happen in 2008. Is this for real? What is behind this notion? Can it be supported by Scripture?

[Post published on May 14, 2007]

If you have been reading the posts in this blog you should have picked up on the fact that both Christianity and Judaism are heavily influenced by teachings and practices that came from Babylon.

From the time shortly after the flood Babylon was founded as a great spiritual and political empire. Although when we look at Iraq today, we do not get that impression. Nor should we. The physical greatness that was once Babylon has been destroyed. In fact, the city of Babylon is a ruin.

The spiritual influence of the once great Babylon and Babylonian Empire lives on today in nearly every religion on earth!

What does that mean for us?

As I explained in earlier posts, the people of Judah were taken captive and transported to Babylon where they lived for seventy years before they were allowed to return. That is a couple of generations.

Very few of the original captives lived long enough to be among those who returned.

However, what happened to the people of Judah while they were there has to this day affected both those who call themselves Christians and those who adhere to the traditions of Judaism.

During that time a group of lay men formed the sect of the Pharisees. This was an intellectual group who actually were influential enough to coerce the people to follow them, their view of the law, and to relegate the Levites and Priests to a token position having little or no teaching influence on the people.

The Pharisees developed a program of teaching new converts to Phariseeism and wrote a five and one half million word document called the Babylonian Talmud upon which they based their religion.

They also adopted the Babylonian calender as their own imposing the feasts and set apart days upon it instead of the solar calendar. They even kept the Babylonian names of the months.

What does all this have to do with a supposed “[pre-tribulation] Rapture?”

The assumption that the Christian religion was a departure from the sect of the Pharisees is only partly true. The Christian religion did reject the Talmuds, but a more deadly plot was hatched against the followers of Jesus: infiltration by a Pharisee whose primary task was to destroy the followers of Jesus by torture and death.

But on his way to carry out his mission he had a new idea. His plot included injecting his own interpretations (a Pharisee trick) and replacing the teachings of Jesus and the apostles with rituals, practices, and traditions that were “less burdensome.” This, of course, is Saul Paulus, one of the most highly trained Pharisees of his day. A brilliant man who brought in deadly heresies that resulted in the creation of new religion that drew followers to him and away from Jesus and the apostles.

From overly zealous revival preachers in the 1800s, comes the idea of the “Rapture.” This idea was never a part of Christianity prior to that time.

The Hebrew Scriptures, the Book of Enoch, the book of Revelation, and Jesus’ prophecies and teachings only tell about the resurrection. These all refer to the people coming back to life in new mortal bodies or in immortal bodies.

Ezekiel prophesied about the resurrection of the “Whole House of Israel.” This includes the descendants of all of the sons of Jacob, who were not Jews, but Israelites. But those from Jacob’s son Judah, later called Jews, will be raised with their cousins from Reuben, Joseph, Dan, and all the other tribes associated with them.

These will be raised from the dead because of the promises made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and to the Nations of Israel through Eyahuwah, Moses, and the Prophets, and in regard to the promises given to the whole world because of the part the Israelites will play in the next ages.

But Christians want to believe in the rapture so badly that they are willing to risk anything to hold on to this doctrine.

Paul formed a supercult. Embedded in his teaching is an “us-versus-them” mentality that is easily picked up from his letters. Included in those are icons. He made the Greek name “Jesus Christ” an icon. He also made his letters an icon, and there is evidence that Paul played a large role in wresting the Aramaic and Hebrew documents away from the apostles and replaced them with his own Greek versions creating the icon of the Greek New Testament.

The book of Acts is not the “Acts of the Apostles.” It is the “Acts of Paul” wherein he even made himself an icon. His followers to this day view everything through Paul’s special dark glasses. Nearly all worship services or Bible studies include references to Paul, and this is tragic!

Those who concentrate on Paul’s letters and stories usually have no idea what the Prophets can teach us. They also lack the great truths contained in the Law.

They build churches based on rules (Phariseeism) and condemn others who do not think as they do. Rather than opening their hearts to understanding and wisdom, they hang on to fables and conceive falsehoods.

They claim that if they had lived during the time of Jesus, they would not have condemned him as the Pharisees did, and by saying this they testify against themselves that they are the offspring of those who killed the prophets.

The idea that a “rapture” would come in 2007 was based on speculation that something must happen after 40 years elapsed since the Jews took control of Jerusalem and the Temple mount in 1967. The conclusion that many made is that the event must be the supposed “rapture.” Now after that time passed, the next theory was that a “rapture” will happen on the Jewish Feast of Trumpets on the Jewish Calendar in September of 2007. That time also passed with no “catching away” causing an epidemic of automobile and plane crashes as drivers and pilots suddenly get swept off to heaven.

There is a tragic misreading of Jesus’ statements that two working in a field and one is taken and the other left. And two would be working at a mill and one is taken and the other left. Which one in these two incidents lives and which dies? This is from Matthew 24:40-41. They speculate that the one that is “taken” is “raptured” away. And they conveniently ignore the statements just prior to these verses that set up these comments:

And as the days of Noah, so also shall the coming of the Son of Man be. [This they assume to be the time of their supposed rapture].

For as they were in the days before the flood, eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and took them all away. So also shall the coming of the Son of Man be. Matthew 24:37-39!

So who died?

The ones who were taken away.

Who lived?

Those that were left!

Noah knew what was happening. He understood the prophecies and he testified to that by building a large barge on dry land to hold his family and a select group of creatures. Noah and his family were the only ones left alive. The flood took all the others away.

Will a “rapture” come in 2008, or 2009, or any year prior to the first day of the Eighth Age?

Nope.

The “rapture” is defined as “A Theological term not used in the Bible.”

But “Resurrection,” “raise up out of their graves,” “stand on their feet,” “many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth wake up” are found in the Scriptures. So rather than doting upon a non-scriptural Theological notion, learn what this means:

Blessed is he [or she] who is waiting earnestly, and comes to the one thousand three hundred thirty five days.

This is reference to the time at the end of this age and into the beginning of the next age. It covers the three and one-half years of the great tribulation, and ends in the Eighth age on a very special Feast and High Day!

Those who cling to the notion of a “pre-tribulation rapture” will not know until the end comes and takes them all away.

Other than the resurrection of the two witnesses, there is only one end of the age resurrection prophesied in the Scriptures.

Protection is promised for those whose “names are written in the book” and those who receive the seal from Elahim, and those who are victorious during the time of tribulation. Belonging to a religion, sect, cult, or whatever offers only tribulation until one knows and acts on the truth that will set him or her free.

For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we made known to you the power and coming of our Master Eyahushuah, the Messiah, but were eyewitnesses of his superbness. For when he received respect and esteem from Elah, the Father, such a voice came to him the Excellent Esteem, “This is My Son, the Beloved in whom I delight.” And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the set-apart mountain.

And we have the prophetic word made more certain, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture came to be of one’s own interpretation, for prophecy never came by the desire of man, but men of Elahim spoke being moved by the set-apart Spirit. 2 Peter 1:16-21 The Scriptures

END TIME: Shocking Prophecies Foretell the End of Religion

Most people consider the Christian Bible or the Jewish Tanakh to be religious books. But this is not true. The Scriptures record how the people turned from a spiritual relationship with the Elah (Eloah), Elahim (Elohim) and Eyahuwah (YHWH) to religions learned from the nations around them. Then the religious leaders in the nations killed the prophets and the apostles, and any who would disagree with them.

This Bible study shows how the Scriptures tell about the end of the religions as one of the most significant and troublesome events marking the end of our age: the seventh age of Enoch’s vision.

When the next age begins, there will no longer be religion as we know it. Instead that age will be an age of righteousness, peace and hope. But the path requires that we turn from our religions now, otherwise we will receive the plagues and death the religions will receive.

This is one of the most shocking revelations of our time. And you will hear this only on this blog and on the podcast blog.

Hebrew Letters, Numbers, and Their Meaning (Revised)

The Hebrew Alphabet contained special meanings for each letter, perhaps from the very beginning. For example, the word for “EL” combines two letters Aleph and Lamed. Aleph originally was a pictograph of an “Ox”, and Lamed of a “shepherd’s staff.” Together the ancient Hebrew word, EL, means “Powerful Leader who keeps us together and on the right path.”

REVISIONS: Research revealed that some clarity was required for the numbers and the letters for 5, 6, 7, 50, 60, 70 and 500, 600, 700. Creation, both physical and spiritual, is a merging of male and female. The physical side is a metaphor for the spiritual. And these concepts are embedded in the symbols of the proto-Hebrew letters. When this is brought into focus then another mystery is solved. The number of man is 666! The number of woman is 555. And the result of the union is 777. Also we should think of this as 6 + 60 + 600, and so forth, because that is the progression of the letters. Remember there are three phases: The “conception” followed by the first manifestation in the womb (growth in the womb), the comes the final manifestation when the entity is born to live forever. Though we have a physical existence now, it is not our final and only life. We are physically alive, but spiritually living in the womb. Later we will be born-again from the spirit. Then we will grow and fulfill our reason for having Life.

Man being represented by 666 is a powerful way to show those with understanding that the coming world leader, prophesied to John in Revelation, will demonstrate great spiritual power, though he will not resurrect the dead. However, this one, after all, is only a man! Whereas those without understanding will think that one is God and the Messiah!

Ancient and Modern Hebrew Letters Compared
The Hebrews considered that they were yoked to EL, who taught them how to walk with God [EL]. The word “Elah” means the “Powerful Leader who keeps us together and wraps his arms around us.” And “Elahim” is the plural of “Elah” or “Powerful Leaders who do the same as Elah.” (The modern Hebrew spelling of these names, Eloah and Elohim, are a departure from the use of the ancient Hebrew vowels aleph, he, yod, vau.)

For example, the Tetragammatron, [yod, he, vau, he] is all vowels, contrary to popular opinion and practice, and would be pronounced “ee, ah, oo, ah.” If sung, as intended, then the change from vowel sound to vowel sound causes the mouth to naturally form transitional consonants, thus: “EE, y, AH, h, OO, w, AH.” To not say or sing this Name, or to make substitution for it, is considered by the Scriptures to be an abomination.

And all day long my name is constantly blasphemed. Therefore my people will know my name; therefore in that day they will know that it is I who foretold it. Yes, it is I. Isaiah 52.

Hebrew is a theological language and the letters themselves express a relation with the Creator that transcends any other. The letters are divided into three groups of nine letters, each group is 10 times “more powerful” than its predecessor. Contained within these groups is a message that tells about the creation as a process of thought, followed by a manifestation of the thought, followed by a final or Great Manifestation that was the original purpose of the Great Plan.

Involved in the process is the testing of those in the first manifestation to filter out any who succeed in overcoming the bad, death, and the negative and obtain, during their mortal life in the first manifestation, the Eternal Life while still in the flesh. These are called the FirstFruits and a High day on the 15th day of the 3rd month of the Revealed calendar celebrates their Life. According to the Torah, no firstfruits were to be harvested during the first seven weeks (or ages) leading up to the eighth age of right-ruling.

And from the day after the Sabbath from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves seven completed Sabbaths. Until the day after the seventh Sabbath (you count fifty days), then you shall bring a new grain offering to Eyahuwah. Bring from your dwellings for a wave offering two loaves of bread, of two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour. They are baked with leaven: the Firstfruits to Yahua! Leviticus 23:14-17

Each of the letters contains the modern Hebrew character, its numeric value, its name, the descriptive name of its ordinal symbol from the ancient Hebrew pictograph alphabet, and its meaning.

Modern Hebrew

Ancient Hebrew

Conceptual. It all starts in the Mind, in Consciousness.

ALEPH (OX): {ah,eh} The dual principle, in the mind of the All Powerful, Wise and Understanding Creator, that represents an image of all that exists and all that does not exist, the positive and the negative, life and death.

BETH (HOUSE or TENT): {b,bh} The symbol of all habitations (places where things live) and receptacles. It is the symbol of anything that “contains.”

GIMEL (FOOT):{g} The activity or the motion of contained, limited existence or nonexistence. It is ALEPH in BETH.

DALETH (DOOR): {d} The archetype of physical existence. The conceptual planned prototype of physical existence. “I am the door. whoever enters through me will be saved.” John 10:9

HE (ARMS): {h,e,ah} The principle or concept of universal life. The female principle behind creation. The arms hold or bind, as in a covenant or as in love.

VAU or WAW (PEG): {w,o,u} is the archetype of male fertilization that is required for creation.

ZAYIN (MATTOCK): {z} The completed fertilizing act. Creation follows. Actually the proto-Hebrew is more of a “plow” which prepares the soil to accept the seed. Conception.

CHETH (WALL): {hh} The enclosure of all unevolved cosmic energy (like the mind or consciousness.) “As a man thinks in his heart, so he is.”

TETH (BASKET): {th} The symbol of the initial female energy. That gives birth to the creation.

Physical and Spiritual Creation

YOD (HAND): {y,i,ee} The opposite of Aleph where Aleph represents concepts that could change, YOD is a symbol of what exists in a steady state, continuity.

CAPH (PALM of the hand): {k,kh} The archetype or prototype of receivers, or containers, from which other containers are copies.

LAMED (STAFF): {l} The principle of the conscious connecting link. For example, it is the shepherds staff with a hook.

MEM (WATER): {m} The archetype of the maternal creative principle. The womb, where the creation waits for birth. (Born of Water)

NUN (SEED): {n} The archetype of all individual existences. All physical life comes from a seed or sperm and from the egg. All Spiritual life comes from spiritual conception.

SAMEKH (PROTECT): {s} The archetype of male fertility or sperm and the protective gonads.

AYIN (EYE): {silent} The illuminating principle behind the act of conception. That life either physical or spiritual comes from the same process. The (mystical) union between male and female.

PE (MOUTH): {p,ph} The opening from which comes all unevolved cosmic energy. “For out of the mouth come evil thoughts.”

TZADDI (SIDE): {ts} The symbol of womanhood. The female “side” (mistranslated “rib” ) was taken from Man leaving Man with only the male side.

The Final Manifestation of Life

QOPH (HORIZON): {q} The exalted state of Aleph. The end of death and the negative. Ancient Hebrew letter pictures a sun splitting the horizon line. The sun sets on death and rises on Life.

RESH (HEAD): {r} The archetype of universal cosmic containers. The English word “raise” comes from this word. The symbol of a head that has been raised up to contain full knowledge.

SHIN (TEETH): {sh} The Spirit of Elah. Some say the “Teeth Shine.” But the face does shine, when full of joy and peace and the set-apart Spirit. A full smile causes the teeth to show.

TAU (MARK or SIGN): {t} The copies of All cosmic existence. They carry the likeness of their Father. “He that has seen me has seen the Father.”

Final CAPH (PALM of the hand): {gh} The final attainment of individual existence as conceived at the beginning. Like the ARMS above that grasped at the time of conception, the PALM of the Hand now holds what was dreamed about, and waited in the womb, and is now manifested in Reality.

Final MEM (WATER): {m} The cosmic state of fertility in Man, both in mind and body. The Father as the Conceiver of Eternal Life. Androgynous Man becomes a cosmic creator. Note the change of emphasis from 6 and 60.

Final NUN (SEED): {n} the interplay between cosmic energies (symbolized by male and female) leading to greater creation.

Final PE (MOUTH): {p,ph} Like Pe[80] and Cheth[8] from the mouth eternal words forever shape the future.

Final TZADDI (SIDE): {ts} The eternal force or archetype of womanhood as part of future creation [the ruach or Holy Spirit is the Mother]. Physical men and woman are born-again as individual “Sons” in the final manifestation. The two “sides” of the “proto-Man”, like the two loaves of the Wave Loaves Offering, remain separate and equal “Sons” in the eyes of their Family [Elahim]

Some believe that Hebrew was the first language ever spoken. I have no reason to doubt that possibility. I also believe that Hebrew, in its best form and sound, will be restored to become the language of all for the ages to come.

GOSPEL: Who Will Save Us?

How many saviors are there? Sometimes human arrogance reaches such heights that it is beyond believability. This is particularly so among religions. Many assume that they “must save the world.” But can they?

A couple of days ago I listened to a preacher on a podcast, or Internet radio, I don’t remember which. He was talking about “prophecy.” He made a big point about how the audience would escape the hell fire through the “rapture,” but those that were “left” would go through the great tribulation and be destroyed because they didn’t believe. At that the audience laughed and applauded.

Actually, the words “believe in Jesus” really mean trust rather than a belief in some doctrine or creed. It means to have confidence in what he will do on our behalf. But, and this is important, he will do what he promised and will perform the tasks — whether we believe it or not.

In other words, the prophecies and promises, made by Eyahuwah, in the Hebrew Scriptures, and who is the one we call “Jesus,” whose name is “Eyahushuah” will be carried out whether we believe in what he said or even know about it.

But we are better off if we know and become spiritually connected with the Family of Elahim, otherwise known as the Kingdom of Heaven or God, whose intent was to make Man in their image and likeness, and to bring the Man beings into the Eternal Life!

How in the face of such religious confusion will anyone ever come to understand how this is going to work — not just for a few, but for all?

In another blog article, I took “our beloved brother Paul” to task. I won’t repeat here what I wrote in that article, you can read it, if you have not done so already. No, I want to make a point: I want to give you the good news (gospel) and not once make any reference to anything Paul wrote. Why? Because it is not necessary. The Apostles didn’t quote or preach from his writings. And if I understand what was written in 2 Peter, Paul’s writings consisted of his own “private interpretations” and a bunch of his own rules ala Phariseeism. In short, we need to understand from all the gospel, or good news, from all other Scriptures first — before we even begin to read what Paul wrote.

Jesus, whose name is “Eyahushuah” (Hebrew), said this to his disciples:

“Who do men say that I the Son of man am?”
And they said, “Some say that you are John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.”
He said to them, “Who do you say I am?
Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ [the Chosen One], the Son of the living God.”
Eyahushuah replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah: for flesh and blood has not revealed it to you, but my Father in heaven. And I say also to you, That you are Peter [Petros: a small pebble], and upon this rock [a huge boulder] I will build my church [assembly of people]; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
Matthew 16:15-19

There are several things that are commonly assumed and misunderstood about this.

First: the word “Church” is a mistranslation. We assume that a church is a building, a sect, denominations or religious institution. The word “ekklesia” references a group of people who are “called from,” an “assembly of citizens,” congregation, or very simply, “Them.” It implies no organization with rules, regulations, oaths, programs, buildings, or anything like that. We get our English, “ex” and “ec” from the Greek “ek.” For example: eccentric, external.

The word “church” should be stricken from all translations and replaced with something that makes sense. The word “Church” has no etymology back to “ekklesia.” Some claim that it goes back to the Greek word “kurios,” which means either “belonging to a lord” [genitive] or “lord” [masculine]. The word is never translated “Church.” Essentially, the word “church” comes from an ex-biblical source and was imposed upon the word “ekklesia”!

In the 1500s Tyndale refused to use the word “Church” in his English translations and instead used the word “congregation.” The Church, of course, who opposed translations in the native language of the people, considered this heresy and eventually hatched a plot to take Tyndale prisoner. He was later tied to a pole, strangled by the hangman and set on fire.

Second: Notice the play on words. This is usually missed:

  • “Son of Man” (Eyahushuah),
  • “the Christ [Messiah], Son of the Living God” (Peter),
  • “Simon son of Jonah” (Eyahushuah to Peter).

Third, the point of the conversation is “revealed” knowledge coming very specifically from the Father in Heaven. It has nothing to do with making Peter the “founder of the church.” Peter is only a pebble, when you consider the truth that was revealed to him: identity of Eyahushuah.

Fourth: Upon the huge immovable rock of a connection with the Father, he said “I will build.”

He didn’t say that “they” would build, or that any who came after them would build, but he said, “I will build my ekklesia (my group of people)” indicating that He was going to be around for a long time.

How was the building going to take place? Through a spiritual connection with Elahim that would provide a means for revealed knowledge from the Father to flow into the world. Not by human effort, but by spiritual power on a person by person basis.

Now that is the work of a Savior!

Where else have we heard words like that? Below is a partial list of statements from the Scriptures where the speaker, either going by the name of Eyahuwah or Eyahushuah, made promises about what he would or would not do.

Before human existence came to the earth:

Eyahuwah Elahim said, “It is not good for Man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Genesis2:18

To Noah:

Eyahuwah said to Noah, “Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty night, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.”

To Abram:

Eyahuwah said to Abram: “Get out of your country, and from your people, and from your father’s house, go to a land I will show you. I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and curse him that curses you; and all peoples of the earth will be blessed through you.” Gen 12:1-3

And throughout the rest of the Scriptures we find statements like (all are direct quotes from the New International Version):

“Even if you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide my eyes from you; and if you offer many prayers, I will not listen.”

I will get relief from my foes.”

I will turn my hand against you.”

I will thoroughly purge away your dross and remove your impurities.”

I will restore your judges.”

I am going to open up your graves and bring you up from them.”

I will put my spirit in you and you will live.”

I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. I will make them one nation in the land in the mountains of Israel.”

I will save them from all their sinful backsliding, and I will cleanse them. They will be my people [see above], and I will be their Elahim.”

I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me.”

“Look! I am coming soon. My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.”

I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on ME, the one they have pierced, and mourn for HIM as one mourns for an only child.”

“On that day, I will banish the names of the idols from the land, and they will be remembered no more,” declares Eyahuwah Almighty. “I will remove both the prophets and the spirit of impurity from the land.”

“I am Eyahuwah your Elahim, who brought you out of Egypt. You shall acknowledge no Elahim but me, no Savior except me!”

I could continue with this for the rest of the week. There are so many statements that tell us what Eyahuwah/Eyahushuah will do. And yes, this entity is one and the same. The Hebrew Scriptures are filled with the message of the Gospel. And the promises of peace, safety, health, long life, and greatness are the future of human kind.

Only this Savior makes these statements about what he will do. And He never forgets or goes back on His Word.

GOSPEL BEGINS: What Happened "Before the Beginning?"

The Book of Genesis says only a little, and what it does say has been the subject of criticism, speculations, and controversy. What went on before is unknown to almost everyone. And it profits us very little to speculate. Where does that leave us?

There are some very old stories from a number of cultures that tell about mythological beings and events. These are passed down from generation to generation and tell of super beings and great animals that created through various means the stars and the sun, the earth, the sky and everything on the earth. These are interesting, but not helpful. We are still faced with the unknown of what really happened before.

So it is with Genesis 1:1.

“In the beginning Elahim created the heavens and the earth.”

There are even more perplexing questions. Where did Elahim come from? Or did Elahim always exist? Can these questions be answered by science, or by psychology, or physics, or by philosophy? Can our senses of touch, sight, smell, taste, or hearing give us clues about an existence that was not, but now is? Will the “scientific method” uncover these mysteries?

Physics can only contemplate back to the beginning of the universe and no further. Historians are faced with the dilemma of what happened more than 5,000 years ago. Any further back and they enter into what they call the time of prehistory. Geologists and Paleontologists face the same limits. All of those who specialize in these disciplines are forced at some point to rely on inference and speculation based upon a descriptive scenario. And when they have finished their discourse, there is always the specter of what happened before.

Clues from the Apostle Thomas and a young Jesus

According to Indian sources and traditions, Thomas, the Apostle, went to India to preach. He was killed by an angry Indian priest and was buried there. Indian literature and tradition also tell that Jesus [Hbr. Eyahushuah] in his youth also went to India, not once but twice, and he read and understood the Veda, and taught from it. According to the tradition, after some time he had to flee from the Brahmanas because he taught that the caste system is evil and should not be used to judge the worth of human beings. He challenged the authority of the priests to rule over people by imposing their law upon them. Whether or not such things are true is hard to say. Anyone can have an opinion on such things, but opinions, polls, and votes are worthless.

The English song “Jerusalem” poses a similar question of the possiblity that Jesus walked on “England’s pleasant pastures:”

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England’s mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England’s pleasant pastures seen?

And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among those dark Satanic Mills?

And well he might have, as Joseph of Arimethea, one of the richest men in the world and Jesus’ uncle, mined tin from those hills, but that is another story. Regardless, we are left only with the “smoke” indicating that at one time there might have been some real evidence to support the claims from both India and England.

The Veda, however, considered the oldest existing documents, go back more than 5,000 years and may have existed before the great flood. Do these contain any information that can shed some light on this problem? The Upanishads of Indian Spiritually, among the oldest documents on earth, are derived from the Veda. There is spiritual wisdom in the Upanishads that may be able to shed some light on the problem of understanding what happened before the beginning. Here is an example:

From the infinite Godhead came forth Brahma,
First among the gods, from whom sprang the cosmos.
Brahma gave the vision of the Godhead,
The true source of wisdom that life demands.

The illumined sages say
Knowledge is twofold, higher and lower.
The study of the Vedas, linguistics,
Rituals, astronomy, and all the arts
Can be called lower knowledge. The higher
Is that which leads to Self realization.
The eye cannot see it; mind cannot grasp it.
The deathless Self has neither caste nor race,
Neither eyes nor ears nor hands nor feet.
Sages say this Self is infinite in the great
And in the small, everlasting and changeless,
The source of life.

The deathless Self meditated upon
Himself and projected the universe
as evolutionary energy.
From this energy developed life, mind,
The elements, and the world of karma,
Which is enchained by cause and effect.
The deathless Self sees all, knows all.
From him springs Brahma, who embodies the process
Of evolution into name and form
By which the One appears to be many.
from the Mundaka Upanishad, Part 1, Chapter 1.

At first glance this appears to be another account of the creation. However, it portrays more than just the creation of the universe, it includes the creation of a Creator as well. Such possibility would make religious leaders cringe. According to the Upanishads, it is through Brahma that the Godhead is revealed. But Brahma “came forth from.” The deathless Self is the One that appears as many. This seems to say that the Self is in everything including you and me!

Understanding the Apostle John’s First Chapter

Compare the above with what is written in John 1.

In the beginning was the Word [Grk. Logos], and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. This One was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him; and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was Life and the Life was the Light of men. And the light shines in the darkness; and the darkness does not overpower it. … And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.

The Aramaic word meltha, from which the Greek logos may have been translated, means both “Word” and “Manifestation.” When considered together this seems to say that a spoken “Word” from El or Elah [God] brought into existence a “Manifestation” of the “Word” in the form of a Spirit Being. And that Spirit Being became a flesh being and dwelt among us!

The Indian documents say that Light is truth (satya). Darkness is untruth (asatya). This Spirit Being was destined to become a flesh being to bring Light (truth) to the world. The Mundaka Upanishad reveals even more about lower and higher forms of knowledge and those who only know the lower form:

Ignorant of their ignorance, yet wise
In their own esteem, these deluded men
Proud of their vain learning go round and round
Like the blind led by the blind.
Living in darkness, immature, unaware
Of any higher good or goal, they fall
Again and again into the sea.

But those who are pure in heart, who practice
Meditation and conquer their senses
And passions, shall attain the immortal Self,
Source of all light and source of all life.

Action prompted by pleasure or profit
Cannot help anyone to cross this sea.

Seek a teacher who has realized the Self.
To a student whose heart is full of love,
Who has conquered his senses and passions,
The teacher will reveal the Lord of Love.

We are quoting from material that is older than 3,500 years. Yet it reads like the Scriptures: Blind leading the blind, willingly ignorant, living in darkness. However, it also says that in order to come in contact with the One, the deathless Self, we must abandon science, rituals, sacrifices: any of the lower knowledge. And through meditation, which is the Way of the deathless Self, we can become one with the source of Life and can attain immortality!

Creation Starts Before the Beginning of Genesis 1:1

In the Aitareya Upanishad is another poetic story of the creation. It says:

Before the world was created, the Self alone existed;
Nothing whatever stirred.
Then the Self thought: “Let me create the world.”
He brought forth all the worlds out of himself:
Ambhas, high above the sky;
Marichi, the sky;
Mara, the middle region that is earth;
And Apa, the realm of waters below.
The Self thought: “I have created these worlds.
Let me now create guardians for these worlds.”
From the waters he drew Purusha
And gave him a form.

In these verses the Self creates worlds. Then the Self creates Purusha, which means “God!” The document goes on to tell that after creating the elements of earthly existence, then human beings, and then finally the Self manifests himself in meditation and Pure consciousness:

Who is this Self on whom we meditate?
Is it the Self by which we see, hear, small, and taste,
Through which we speak in words?
Is Self the mind by which we perceive, direct, understand,
Know, remember, think, will, desire and love?
These are but servants of the Self, who is Pure consciousness.
This Self is all in all.
He is all the Gods.

The Aitareya Upanishad is from the Rig Veda, perhaps one of the oldest spiritual documents. “Veda” means “knowledge.” The Rig Veda contains many references to one called Manu. He is the father of all living. He carried precious seed into the new world in his Ark. With him were Seven Sages who along with Manu possessed great spiritual knowledge. A great flood destroyed the old world, and only Manu and the Seven Sages survived. From “Father Manu” came the knowledge and wisdom of his Holy Ones, called Gods. The Rig Veda is considered to contain Manu’s revealed wisdom! All of the “Enlightened Ones” were considered to be Manu’s progeny. The parallels between Manu and Noah are hardly a coincidence.

Few people have read the words of this Spiritual book. The words speak of One, called Self, who is Pure consciousness. Through this One through meditation upon Himself, came all that exists out of Himself, including all the Gods, who are also called the Guardians. The One called Self is the same as the One called El or Elah in Hebrew.

Spiritual Meditation Opens the Way

We can receive from Self or Elah through meditation. The first that we can receive is realization of the existence of the Self or Elah. Then after that from the Self will follow understanding and wisdom. And from the union of these two, the Self gives us higher knowledge.

Much of this material is classed as mysticism. This is a subject that, although it can be explained, is often hard to comprehend. However, a common thread runs through all mysticism regardless of the culture. Contact with Intelligence, Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge, Power, Love and Life is possible through meditation. Therefore, this reality is comprehended only those who have gone through the discipline of meditation. Nothing is experienced by talking or reading about it.

If you only read about meditation you may learn of the techniques, terms, and experiences of others. This is the “lower” knowledge. However, when you meditate and make contact with the Self, with Elah, with the One, you move to the “higher” knowledge. Meditation can be explained (lower knowledge), but only until it has been successfully experienced through practice can it be truly realized (higher knowledge). This experience is called “Self realization,” “Elahl consciousness,” “Walking with Elahim,” which is what I mean by the “Elahim Connection.” This was experienced by the Fathers, the Prophets, and by the Apostles and continues to this day.

As described in the verses above, there are two kinds of knowledge: higher and lower. Most of the efforts of humans are concentrated and dependent upon the lower knowledge described above. What is described here is the way to higher knowledge: that which can give us knowledge about what existed before the beginning as well as understanding about now and about the future. That is not possible using the lower knowledge and its tools alone.

Enoch’s Vision of Events Before the Beginning

Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah, saw a flashback vision of events that happened before the beginning:

And in that place I saw the fountain of righteousness which was inexhaustible;
And around it were many fountains of wisdom;
And all the thirsty drank of them and were filled with wisdom; and their dwelling were with the righteous and holy and elect.
And at that hour the Son of Man was named in the presence of the Lord of spirits, and his Name before the Head of Days.
Yes, before the sun and the signs were created, before the stars of heaven were made, His Name was named before the Lord of Spirits.
He shall be a staff to the righteous whereon to stay themselves and not fall, and he shall be the light of the Gentiles, and the hope of those who are troubled of heart.
And all who dwell on earth shall fall down and worship before him, and will praise and bless and celebrate with song the Lord of Spirits.
And for this reason he has been chosen and hidden before Him, before the creation of the world and for evermore.
1 Enoch 48: 1-3

A Message from Noah’s Son Ham

Then he saw a being called the Son of Man who was given a Name. Enoch was the seventh generation from Adam and the great-grandfather of Noah. From his father Enoch, Noah received the spiritual heritage that passed through to the new world after the great flood. Therefore it should not be a surprise to find that the Egyptians (sons of Noah’s son Ham), developed a major religious system whose God sounds very familiar. The following is a collection of passages from The Egyptian Book of the Dead:

God is one and alone, and none other exists with him.
God is the One who made all things.
God is a spirit, a hidden spirit, the spirit of spirits, the great spirit of the Egyptians, the divine spirit.
God is from the beginning, and he has been from the beginning. He has existed from old and was when nothing else had being. He existed when nothing else existed, and what exists He created after He had come into being. He is the Father of beginnings.
God is the eternal One. He is eternal and infinite and endures for ever and aye.
God is hidden and no man knows his form. No man has been able to seek out His likeness; He is hidden to gods and men, and He is a mystery unto his creatures. No man knows how to know him. His name remains hidden; His name is a mystery unto His children. His names are innumerable. They are manifold and none knows their number.
God is truth and He lives by truth and He feeds thereon. He is the king of truth, and He has established the earth thereupon.
God is life, and through Him only, man lives. He gives life to man. He breathes the breath of life into his nostrils.
God is father and mother, the father of fathers, and the mother of mothers. He begets, but was never begotten. He produces, but was never produced. He begat Himself and produced Himself. He creates, but was never created. He is the maker of His own form, and the fashioner of His own body.
God Himself is existence. He endures without increase or diminution. He multiplies Himself millions of times, and He is manifold in forms and in members.
God has made the universe, and He has created all that therein is. He is the creator of what is in this world, and of what was, of what is, and of what shall be. He is the creator of the heavens, and of the earth, and of the deep, and of the water, and of the mountains.
God has stretched out the heavens and founded the earth. What his heart conceived straightway came to pass, and when He has spoken, it comes to pass and endures forever.
God is the father of the gods. He fashioned and formed the gods.
God is merciful unto those who reverence him, and He hears him that calls upon Him. God knows him that acknowledges Him. He rewards him that serves Him. And He protects him that follows Him.
(Taken from Egyptians texts Dr. Brugsch, Religion and Mythologie, pp. 96-99. Quoted from pp. xcii-xciii of The Egyptian Book of the Dead, by E. A. Wallis Budge. Edited by the author to remove Old English spelling and punctuation.)

Each of the above paragraphs could have been lifted out of the Bible.

We Are the Offspring of a Line of Spiritual and Righteous Fathers

The entire human race comes from a line of righteous fathers. Our fathers, from Adam, Seth, Enoch, Noah and his sons and there wives, and the fathers in between, all had what can be called the Elahim Connection. This means that we, all people, have a very powerful spritual heritage through them. Therefore, we need to get back to the spiritual connection they had! If we fail to do this, and instead continue in our wickedness, then the world will fall under a great curse, and, like the population of humans before the flood, millions of people will perish before we enter the Eighth Age prophesied by our father Enoch through a vision.

Conclusion: It is evident that Existence transcends comprehension using the “standard” means of learning knowledge. There is the nagging of problem of what happened before that cannot be answered using scientific methods and the five senses. For thousands of years humans from many cultures have found a common way to gain wisdom and understanding through meditation. The combination of wisdom and understanding opens the door to realization through the Self that exists within each person and in all. There is a spiritual oneness that links a weak and mortal human being with the One who planned before the beginning that immortality and spiritual life was the ultimate manifestation to be experienced by His Creation.

In the beginning was only Being,
One without a second.
Out of himself he brought forth the cosmos
And entered into everything in it.
There is nothing that does not come from him.
Of everything he is the inmost Self.
He is the truth; He is the Self supreme.

What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we beheld and our hands handled, concerning the Word of Life –
and the Life was manifested, and we have seen and bear witness and proclaim to you the Eternal Life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us.
1 John 1

From the time Before the Beginning of Genesis 1:1, it was the desire and intention of the One, the El or Elah, to start a process that carried from “thought” to a “Kingdom” of immortal, righteous, and pure beings: Us!

But we are not living our destiny — yet!
