If this is a reality, why are you using mostly the name of Ancient Adam (Jesus Christ) instead of the name of Jesus Christ per say since it was in the body and personality of Jesus, the one that by his obedience performed the redemption for humanity, that he realized this great sacrifice and not the man Adam, his first personality?
I just need to understand this.
PS: the teachings in this (your) book are amazing, especially now that I am studying kosher kabbalah. I can understand your writings a lot better.
Pastor Vitale’s Response:
Ancient Adam is not the man Adam. Ancient Adam is the name of the stream of light of the Eternal One that entered into the empty space, the beginning of creation. He is not created. He is God. Jehovah is the Name of God within creation. Ancient Adam is beyond creation, as well as within it. He is the prototype from which Adam, the created man is modeled.
As to the resurrection, The body is not resurrected. Jesus taught that to the Sadducees:
23 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,
24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:
26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.
27 And last of all the woman died also.
28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,
32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
Further to your question, Ancient Adam is the Ancient of Days mentioned in Daniel 7. He is the most Ancient one, ie, the founder of Creation:
9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.
22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Do you see the Ancient of Days in the Book of Revelation? Jesus is the Name of Ancient of Days. He is the garment that covers him, that makes him knowable to humanity.
Jesus is not God, he is the second Adam, the Lord from Heaven, and the last Adam, the Spirit of Life
God bless you.
