Praise the Lord, brethren. The Lord had given us some exciting understanding of the symbolisms in the Zohar, in my opinion, anyway, of the most difficult part of the Zohar, which is the beginning. When I first started studying Kabbalah, I didn’t understand that the difficult part comes first. I now understand that the most difficult part comes first and then everything is much easier afterwards. The beginning portions of the Zohar, at least to me, and I believe that I’ve read where other Kabbalists say the same thing, is the most difficult part of the Zohar. It’s very symbolic, and without the spirit of revelation there is no way anybody could possibly understand what’s being talked about. I’m going to start this series by reading a portion of the Zohar to you. Then tonight we’re going to speak about and possibly translate some passages in the New Testament which relate to what I’ll be telling you about that portion of the Zohar. Then in subsequent messages I will show you what the Lord told me, the revelation that the Lord gave me, what each symbol means in the passage that I have read and will read again and we will translate this portion of the Zohar. I will tell you this, brethren, and it’s the same thing that I have told you on parts of A Wondrous Edifice. All of this revelation has come down while I was studying for another message #582 A Wondrous Edifice. This has to be a different number. I’m jumping all over the place with what the Lord is showing me. I’m doing the best I can to have some logical sequence here. This message follows part 5 of A Wondrous Edifice.
As I told you in the later parts of that message, 4 and 5, everything in the Zohar and everything in the Bible is about man. It’s all about us. The whole creation is inside of mortal man at this time. The spiritual creation is inside of us. Our spirits, the spirit of mortal man is in prison and the prison house is this body and this carnal mind, this animal body and this carnal mind. We’re told about it in the form of Nebuchadnezzar, how he became an animal until he learned that God rules in the earth and in the everyday business and affairs of man as well as in the heavens. We are Nebuchadnezzar, we are Adam who has become an animal. The term in the scripture and in the Zohar; in the beginning, is referring to the new beginning that the Lord has arranged for the criminal spirits that were put in prison houses at the time of the flood. In the Zohar, Genesis 1:1 in the beginning, it’s the beginning of the release of the prisoners from the prison houses, which is in the form of a recreation. It’s a form of a new creation; behold, I make all things new. In order to get out of the prison houses, we have to be made anew or we have to be born again in the image and the nature of Christ Jesus. Every word that the lord speaks to us is either about what happened to us, our present condition and or what He wants to do for us and what we will be in the future. Every word in the scripture or any other book that you might read that truly comes from God, that is His message to mankind. It is time for the release of the prisoners. It is the year of Jubilee. It is seven times seven. Forty-nine spiritual years have passed. The fiftieth year is the year of Jubilee. The way out, the door, the exit from the prison houses is a spiritual door and His name is the Lord Jesus Christ.
That’s it. That’s the message in a nutshell. It’s time for the release of the prisoners. It’s time for the jails to be unlocked. The problem is the place where you put the key in is very hard to see or to access. That’s the name of this message, The Impress Of A Key. The Lord Jesus Christ is the key. It really should be the impress of the keyhole. The Lord Jesus Christ, He is the key coming to insert Himself into us, to turn us from being worthless. From a spiritual point of view, if we’re not producing anything spiritual or manifesting the Kingdom of God, we’re worthless. That’s from a spiritual point of view. The Lord wants to put the key of Himself into us, into our spirit, into our being, but the place where He puts the key is guarded. Cain is guarding Abel, the recipient of the key. The Lord wants to activate us as spiritual beings and the way the Zohar and the Scripture expresses that, that He wants to make us fruitful from a spiritual point of view. The way that’s expressed is, that we should be created because as far as the Lord is concerned, we don’t even exist until we start manifesting spiritual life. That’s a hard word, but for everyone that can hear it, the door is open for them to make their escape.
Jesus said to the Pharisees, you say you see, so there’s nothing I can teach you if you already see. He said, I’ve come to heal the blind. If you already see then my healing is not for you. The church and humanity needs to understand that we are hurtful spirits that are in prison houses, our physical bodies and carnal minds. We are not in the image of God. The image of God is a righteous image that does not sin and there’s no sowing and reaping judgment. There’s no law applied to someone that does not sin, but the church is bound in pride thinking that they have already received the promises and therefore the impress of the key is covered over. The impress of the key in each one of us whose name is Abel, is covered over by Cain, Leviathan and Satan and the Lord Jesus cannot access us to make us fruitful. That’s it in a nutshell. He wants to access us, to penetrate us, to join with us to make us fruitful and bring us back to our first estate and even higher.
I will now read to you the portion of the Zohar that we will be dealing with and hopefully translating. This is the Sanzino Zohar, Volume 1, The Prologue, starting on page 13. Bereshith, in the beginning said Rabbi Yehuda, what is the meaning of Bereshith? It means with wisdom, the wisdom on which the world is based. Remember we are the world. It’s not the world out there, we are the world. Through this it introduces us to deep and recondite mysteries. In it, too, is the inscription of six chief supernal directions, out of which there issues the totality of existence. From the saying there go forth six sources of rivers which flow into the great sea. This is implied in the word bereshith, which can be analyzed into bereshith, meaning He created six. This is talking about the six sefirot of Ze’ir Anpin. Who created them? The Mysterious Unknown. Rabbi Hyer and Rabbi Jose were walking along the road. When they reached the open country, Rabbi Hyer said to Rabbi Jose, what you said about bereshith, signifying bereshith, meaning created six is certainly correct, since the Torah speaks of six primordial days and not more. The others are hinted at, but not disclosed. Nevertheless, from what is told us, we can perceive the following. The Holy and Mysterious One engraved in a hidden recess one point in that He enclosed the whole of creation as one who locks up all His treasures in a palace under one key, which is therefore as valuable as all that is stored up in that palace because it is the key which shuts and opens.
Brethren, I hope to convince you that that key is Abel within mortal man. In that palace there are hidden treasures, one greater than the other. The palace is provided with fifty mystic gates. They are inserted in its four sides to the number of forty-nine. The one remaining gate is on none of its sides and it is unknown whether it is on high or below. It hints of the mysterious gate. That’s the Lord Jesus Christ, who said I am the door. This fiftieth gate, it’s neither to the left, to the right, north, south, east, west or up and down. It’s a spiritual gate. It’s another dimension. Jesus is the fiftieth gate of Binah. He is another dimension. All these gates have one lock and there is one tiny spot for the insertion of the key and that is Abel in your spiritual being. This tiny spot is only marked by the impress of the key. It is this mystery which is implied in the words; in the beginning, God created. In the beginning, bereshith; this is the key which encloses the hole and which shuts and opens. Six gates are controlled by this key which opens and shuts. At first it kept the gates closed and impenetrable. This is indicated by the word, bereshith, which is composed of a revealing word, shith, with a concealing word, bara. Bara is always a word of mystery, closing and opening, said Rabbi Jose. Assuredly it is so and I have heard the sacred lamp say the same to whit, that bara is a term of mystery, a lock without a key.
Didn’t Jesus say he was the one that opens and when he opens no man can close and when He closes, no man can open? Okay, we’re going to integrate this. As long as the world was locked within the term bara, it was not in a state of being or existence. That’s talking about men. We’re all locked up, unless we have been penetrated. As far as God is concerned, we don’t exist. Over the hole there hovered tohu, chaos dominated. Remember we’ve already defined tohu as emotional chaos. The world was not in being or existence. When did that key open the gates and make the world fruitful? It was when Abraham appeared. I never used to understand that scripture, how the world became fruitful when Abraham appeared because I thought it was the world out there or the planet earth. I now know that each one of us is a world and what that last sentence means is that Abraham was the first man that was penetrated and became fruitful and became a manifestation of the kingdom of God on earth.
Tonight we are going to do a study in I Peter Chapter 3:18 thru I Peter Chapter 4, the first couple of verses, maybe verse 3 in I Peter Chapter 4. The reason we are doing this is as an introduction to my position that the beings, whatever form they were in on the other side of the flood, were locked up in the prison houses of these physical bodies and this carnal mind because they were unpersuadable. They would not believe God. They would not believe God. Abraham believed God and for him it was imputed as righteousness. His believing God was imputed as righteousness. It covered his sin nature. We have the same problem today with the Kabbalists, with the Jewish community that study these messages or that study Kabbalah, that study in any degree, and with the church. The people will not believe that we are the hurtful spirits that are in a spiritual prison house. They choose to believe that either they’re good or they’re as God now. Jesus clearly said, I’ve come to set you free, but if you think you’re already free, there is nothing I can do for you.
This series is to reveal to whoever will who we are and the promise of the release of the prisoners, the fiftieth year of Jubilee or you can say the fiftieth gate of Binah, it is the Lord Jesus Christ. It is a gate that exists in another spiritual dimension. What does that mean? It means that this gate which is the way of escape cannot be accessed by the carnal mind. Only Christ in you and Christ in me can get through that gate. Only Christ in you or me can recognize that gate. Only Christ in you or me can communicate with that gate. The Holy Spirit is not that gate. That gate is the glorified Jesus Christ. He is the doorway to the mind of Christ, to the Kingdom of God, to the world to come. He is the world to come. He is the age that will never end. He is another dimension. The carnal mind will never find Him.
Brethren, today the church is made up of carnally minded people who are under the influence of the Holy Spirit. They will never find the door and they will never pass through it. Jewish people who may be listening to my messages, you have a carnal mind just like the rest of the world. His world (?) fell down out of their high spiritual place and all the members of Israel today, you all have carnal minds. The four winds of the Zohar are talking about the four spiritual aspects of your carnal mind; the unconscious, the subconscious, the conscious and the super conscious. None of those aspects of your carnal mind can translate you into the world to come. You have to find the door, which is not on any of the sides of the palace or on the inside of the palace. It’s another dimension, it’s another mind. It is the mind of Christ. He is the only way. There is no other way and in order to access Him, Abel must be activated in us.
I am going to start this series with a study in the New Testament, which hopefully will reveal who we mortal men are and how we got in this condition. Brethren, please open your eyes. This is a cruel world. I live in the United States. We all live in the United States here. I live in a beautiful home with all trees and flowers outside. I have a nice car, I have furniture and I sleep on a soft bed. I have everything that I need. I’ve never been without food in my life and this life is still painful. It’s painful. If you try to live for God, if you try to live in honesty, relationships are painful because we all hurt each other all the time without meaning to. Life is painful. This is hell, brethren. I would like to escape. I have found the door, but I’m here. I was taken off of death row and for whatever reason I’m here. At least part of the reason I’m here is to speak the word of the Lord to whoever will listen. Praise the Lord.
We’re in I Peter Chapter 3. I think I’ll start reading at verse 17. For it is better, if the will of God be so, that you suffer for well doing rather than for evil doing. For Christ also hath once suffered for us for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit; By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God.) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him. Chapter 4 verse 1. Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live in the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you; for no longer doing what they still do.
Brethren, this message is about mortal man and that includes the church. It’s about people. It’s about our fallen condition. It’s about our fallen nature and it’s about how God sent Christ, the Door, to help us escape from the lusts of this world. We’re going to be working in the interlinear text. I don’t have any interlinear text on the first verse that I read, I Peter 3:17, but I would like to comment on it. For it is better if the will of God be so that you suffer for well doing than for evil doing. Let me remind you, brethren, that every scripture can be understood on multiple levels. In this ministry we deal with the mysteries, with the deep spiritual levels. Of course, there are situations in life where we are accused falsely and that is a very hurtful thing. It can hurt our emotions. It can hurt relationships. It can hurt our finances. Being accused falsely can do great damage to us and cause us great pain. Brethren, that is not what this scripture is talking about. The verse before it is talking about having a good conscience whereas they speak evil of you as of evil doers, that they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. This is talking about the Christ life, brethren.
The life in Christ has suffering associated with it. Although that suffering may manifest and does manifest in the flesh, it is primarily talking about spiritual suffering, brethren. When you are truly living your life out of Christ, you feel other people’s pain. I experienced a great deal of pain today. It started last night and I know that I was feeling someone else’s pain. I was suffering with someone that I have a soul tie with. Why this suffering? We are vicariously experiencing the sin of other people because suffering is sin. A righteous man doesn’t suffer. There’s no law against a righteous man. Those of us that have the heart of Christ, not just the mind of Christ, but the heart of Christ, we suffer because we experience the sin of the people that we have a soul tie with. When we studied the Gate Of Reincarnations, we read about this from another perspective. I read about disembodied beings incarnating, co-inhabiting the bodies of existing people and under some instances feeling their pain. Although if I remember the study correctly, the Gate of Reincarnation said that the incarnating personality did not share the pain of the host. We know that Jesus shared the pain and that those that have the heart of Christ share the pain of the people they are incarnating in.
I studied this in The Gate of Reincarnations. It’s possible for a living person, like myself for example, to be an ibur of another person. Christ, in me, is penetrating many of the people that I teach. Therefore, Christ in me anyway, not me, is an ibur. He’s living inside of you. That’s how I feel your pain. He’s spreading out from me and He’s penetrating many people, for the purpose of finding that impress of the key, and penetrating that impress and turning the key that will make that person a productive person in the kingdom of God. He is reaching out to many people through me. I feel the pain of the sin of most of the people that Christ is living in when His home base is in me, so Christ in me is an ibur. Does that make me an ibur? I don’t know, but we know that Kabbalah teaches the principle that I’m talking about right now.
That is what I Peter Chapter 3 verse 17 is talking about. For it is better if the will of God be so that you suffer for well doing than for evil doing. It’s better than you having pain in your heart because you feel guilty or because you’ve hurt somebody. Better than that, is that you should be feeling someone else’s pain because then you’re not guilty. There’s no consequences. When it’s your own pain, it’s the pain of guilt or you’ve done evil to people, you’re the recipient of the sowing and reaping judgment. If you’re feeling pain because you’re doing a good work, because you’re teaching somebody, because you’re praying for somebody, because you’re close to somebody, trying to impart Christ in them, if that’s the reason you’re suffering, that is pleasing to God. Why? Is it pleasing to God that you should suffer? No! What’s pleasing to God is that you are sacrificing your life and experiencing this pain so that this person or other people can hopefully come to Christ. That is pleasing to God, that you are willing to suffer so that others can come to Christ. Not come to the Holy Spirit, now, but come to Christ. They’re not the same thing.
Once again, this whole message, this whole series is about the condition of humanity and the condition of the church, God’s church. You can be Jewish and be a part of God’s church. It has to do with your spirit. It has to do with where your spirit abides. If your spirit is the Spirit of God or the heart of God, you are a part of the church. If you are a Jewish person reading this transcript and that offends you, then please think of it another way. Recognize the spiritual principles and don’t get hung up on that word. We are one body, all of us, whose spirit is of God. We are one body on the spiritual planes.
Verse 18. For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit. First of all, who is Christ? If you remember the teaching, Adam who fell, was Christ. Christ means the Anointed One. It means the anointed of God. For also Christ, once, at one time, suffered for sins. Well he sinned and he suffered already. He fell down. The Greek word translated, have suffered, is Strong’s #3958 and it means to experience a sensation or impression. I want to suggest to you that this Christ that suffered at one time (that’s in the past) Christ, who suffered at one time. Oh you think that means Jesus hanging on the cross. Brethren, this does not mean Jesus hanging on the cross. I have a whole series called The Christ. Jesus was The Christ. This is Christ, Adam, who lived prior to this age and he fell. He sinned and he died. That’s why once, at one time in the past, because he sinned, he experienced being impressed with the serpent’s nature. The just for the unjust. The Greek word translated, for, can also be translated over; the just over the unjust. For also Christ, who at one time, was impressed with the serpent’s nature because he sinned.
Alternate Translation; I Peter 3:18; Because at one time, Christ, which is Adam, the innocent one, (that’s the translation of just) was overshadowed by his sin nature because he, Adam, intended to put the evil one (that’s the translation of unjust) to death, so that he might lead (that’s a translation of bring) us, all of humanity, to the life of God. This is so interesting!!! This translation is such a blessing to us. I’ve never had such a clear insight as to the source of the conflict between Adam and his sin nature. I have known for a while that Adam had an imputed anointing, that sin was conscious in him, and that it was not dead. It had consciousness and it had power and Adam, the spiritual man, the just one, was locked up in some kind of a spiritual house with an evil nature. Of course Jehovah gave Adam authority over that evil nature and said don’t let him (her) that evil nature, climb up over you. See, I knew that Jehovah said to Adam, don’t let that sin nature climb up over you, but I never knew that there was another instruction. I didn’t realize that Jehovah had said to Adam, not only don’t let that sin nature climb up and take authority over you, but you have to kill it. Mortify the deeds of your flesh. It has to die. That sin nature has to die and this battle should not be all that difficult for you, Adam, because from the get-go, from the beginning, I’m making you stronger and giving you authority over that sin nature, so not only don’t let it climb up over you, but when you have it already under your feet, kill it. Did you know that? I didn’t know that.
It was not accurate to think that Jehovah just put Adam in the garden. We all knew that Adam had a sin nature and that the snake appeared and tempted the woman and the woman was tempted with the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the lust of life and she fell. It was much more than that. The serpent had a motive for seducing the woman. The motive was that the serpent knew that the commandment had been given to Adam to kill the serpent, so the serpent rose up and bit Adam before Adam could obey Jehovah. I’m all excited. Is that not exciting? Man, that is just really exciting!!!
At one time, Adam the innocent one, (he had not sinned yet, he was innocent) was overshadowed by his own sin nature because the sin nature knew that Adam intended to put that evil one to death. The reason that Adam intended to put that evil nature to death was because he knew that it was his job, Adam knew that it was his job to lead all of mortal humanity to the life of God. Adam was not just a single entity. He knew that he had, however many, hundreds, thousands, trillions, (who knows) of beings within him. Adam was the collective consciousness of mankind. It’s almost like saying he was pregnant. Of course this was the female aspect of Adam, who was pregnant with humanity. According to the deeds of Adam, humanity would either be born with the nature of the serpent or the nature of God. That’s what the parable means when it says, And Elohim or Jehovah watched. I’m sorry, but I cannot remember which one it was. God watched to see the name that Adam would give to the animals. Adam didn’t name the animals of this world, brethren, because God didn’t make this world. This is the fallen world that was formed by the serpent. God watched to see whether Adam would give mankind the nature of the beast or the nature of God. Adam had a serious enemy who was determined to kill him because from the serpent’s point of view, it was kill or be killed. The serpent which was the evil consciousness of the earth, knew that she was about to be slain by Jehovah’s champion. That’s why the serpent rose up and successfully seduced the female Adam before humanity was born with the nature of God. Wow!!! That’s exciting.
Of course, we see the translation in the King James isn’t anything like this at all. Is the translation in the King James wrong? No, it’s not wrong. For Christ hath also once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit. You see, brethren, when the scripture was translated, it was translated by scholars who believed what I just read to you. Is it wrong? No. That’s probably close to what happened to Jesus of Nazareth. That was their knowledge. They translated according to their knowledge. I have a deeper knowledge and we understand here that everything that plays out in the natural, including what happened to Jesus of Nazareth, is an expression of something that happened in the spirit. The truth of what happened in the spirit can be expressed in a multitude of ways. Spiritual truth can be expressed on every spiritual level and there are infinite spiritual levels. What we cannot change is the spiritual foundational truth. How we apply it on each grade or each level or each world can be legitimate. The King James Translation is good on the surface. It’s good for Asyiah, but we have just translated according to Atzilut.
I Peter 3:19; By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison. He went and preached unto the spirits in prison. Verse 19 is talking about the spirit of the male Adam preaching to the female Adam that was seduced. She was pregnant with all of mankind and she was seduced and she sinned and died. We’re told that the female Adam, the mother of creation or the mother of all, was commanded to give the nature of God to mankind to lead us to the life of God. It was this same spirit by which Jesus Christ preached unto the spirits in prison. This is a great mystery in I Peter. This is no simple epistle. Brethren, the spirits in prison are the human spirits of mankind. The human spirit of mankind is Able. Able is the human spirit and Able is in prison locked up under Cane and Leviathan and Satan. In most instances, the seed of Christ, Able, is in agreement with the powers and principalities of this world. What we’re told in verse 19 is that this spirit that Adam was commanded to give to mankind is the same spirit by which Jesus of Nazareth went to preach to the spirits in prison. We’re the spirits in prison, that’s us. That’s everyone that He preached to and everyone that Jesus is preaching to today. We have this whole doctrine in the church of Jesus dying and going down to hell. He didn’t have to do that. Jesus, in the days of His flesh, was in hell. This is hell!!! This is it!!!
Let me put this verse 19 up on the board. Before I put this on the board I wanted to tell you that the Greek word translated prison means a guarding; a guarding, a guarding. Remember Adam was commissioned by Jehovah to guard the garden. There were two Adams, a male Adam and a female Adam. God put them in the garden separately. We’re told in Genesis Chapter 2:8; And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. Down in verse 15 we read; And the Lord God took the man and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. The first man was put in a garden eastward in Eden and the second time he was put in the Garden of Eden. It was the female Adam that was put in the garden and told to guard it because the female Adam was pregnant with all of humanity. What I would like to point out to you here is that in verse 19 of I Peter 3:19 that word prison can also mean guarding. Jesus, the Christ went to preach to the spirits that were in prison or the spirits that were being guarded. I want to suggest to you that the female Adam is still fulfilling her commission, only she is working in the service of the serpent. She’s still guarding the spirits of the creation, the spirits of mankind. There was a Star Trek episode about a robot. A robot was created to do good to man and when he was sent out to space, he got hit with some space debris and got all confused and instead of protecting mankind, he started killing everything that wasn’t perfect including man, which is not perfect.
You’re all looking at me. We’re all getting slain in the spirit here. My point is that it was the female Adam who fell, the female Adam who was commissioned by Jehovah to guard the garden. What is the garden? The garden is her spiritual ovary. What’s in the garden? The seed is in the garden, the seed of humanity. She was to guard the seed of humanity against the serpent, but the female Adam was seduced and married the serpent and now she’s guarding the seed of humanity against Christ. I tell you here and I’ve been telling you here for years that when Christ comes to us, a lot of the defenses that have serviced us well in the world now defend us against Christ. Do you recall me teaching you that? Especially pride does this. There is a healthy pride. You cannot survive in this world without a healthy pride. This world is a dangerous place. Other people are always attacking. Whether they know it or not, that’s what they are doing. Someone who is healthy just deals with the upheavals of life without thinking much about it. There’s always somebody telling you to do something that you shouldn’t do or telling you not to do something that you should do.
This world is a very difficult place to live in for people who aren’t adjusted to it. It could be devastating. Let me say it again. I’m suggesting to you that the female Adam who is commissioned by Jehovah to guard the seed of the garden is still doing just that, except she’s guarding the seed (which is Able) against Christ. I was telling you how many people in this world will have a self-defense mechanism, which may be necessary in this world, but when they come to the Lord, that self-preservation or that self-defense mechanism guards them against the penetration of Christ which wants to activate their seed. That’s exactly what this scripture is talking about. It’s saying it’s by that same spirit that Adam was supposed to be giving us life by, by that same spirit, Jesus the Christ, went to preach to the spirits that are now being guarded by Leviathan.
Adam, the innocent one, has become the evil one, has become Leviathan, who is still guarding. She is still guarding her children, but she’s married to the serpent. The female Adam is still guarding her children, humanity, except that she divorced Jehovah or Jehovah divorced her and now she’s married to Leviathan, so she guards us for the sake of the serpent. Do you understand what I’m saying? Okay, let’s get this on the board. Verse 20 of I Peter Chapter 3; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. We’re now being guarded by Leviathan or fallen Adam. Which the same spirits that are now being guarded by fallen Adam in this past age were disobedient, meaning were unpersuadable (they could not be persuaded) which spirits that the fallen Adam is guarding for the serpent could not be persuaded (that’s a translation of disobedient) to believe God. They could not be persuaded to believe God and neither can the church today nor can the Kabbalists or the practicing observant Jews, be persuaded to believe God. When at that time (that’s on the other side of the flood) in the previous age, God waited patiently (that’s a translation of longsuffering) for Noah to be prepared to be the ark by which the small amount (that’s a translation of few) of eight animal souls (that’s a translation of nefesh) the Greek word translated souls is animal soul, were preserved by avoiding the negative energy of the serpent. I think avoiding is a translation of the word, by, so I’ve played on the words a little bit here.
The King James says the disobedient spirits when in the previous age. These disobedient spirits refused to believe God when in the previous age. God waited patiently (the King James says) in the days of Noah while the ark was a preparing wherein few, only eight souls got onto the ark. Those of us who study the mysteries, don’t believe Noah built a physical ark. I don’t know; maybe Noah was building a physical ark. I really don’t think so, but as I tell you all the time, I wouldn’t argue with anyone about it. Noah is the ark. We are the ark, those of us, that have Christ in us. When Christ is built, in us, He becomes our ark. He becomes our deep sea diving suit. He becomes the ship that we sail in. You know there are times that we read in the New Testament that Jesus separated Himself from the people and stood in a boat. Jesus was not standing in a physical boat, brethren. He was not. He was not sitting in a physical boat. Christ, in Jesus, separated Him from the other people. I don’t really know at the moment whether Christ separated Him to protect Him or He was just separated from them because He had Christ. Brethren, when you have Christ and you’re preaching to a group of people that just have faith in God or the Holy Spirit, you are separated from them. You’re in a different world. You’re in the world to come. Praise the Lord.
Let’s read this again. Which spirits that the fallen Adam is guarding for the serpent could not be persuaded to believe God when at that time in the previous age God waited patiently. What was God waiting patiently for? He was waiting for Noah to be prepared. Maybe that’s what He’s waiting for today. We’re all saying, when Lord, when? Well maybe we’re not ready. Maybe God is more anxious than we are. The Lord actually told me many times He’s more anxious for us to stand up in full stature than we are, but we’re not ready. It just takes time and we have to grow up. God waited patiently for Noah to be prepared to be the ark by which this small amount of eight animal souls (8 nefesh) were preserved. The way that they were preserved was by avoiding the negative energy of the serpent.
I don’t know that I ever preached it, but I know that I studied the flood by myself. I studied it in the interlinear text which shows that the waters kept rising and it was Satan’s waters that kept rising. The waters of the lower energy centers were rising up into the heart energy center and overflowing the heart energy center of the beings that lived at that time. I don’t know what they looked like. Satan’s flood waters were rising up and covering over the heart center which I describe as the area of the central place of our being. Everything seems to come out of the heart center. They avoided Satan’s waters. Satan’s waters are the negative energy that was in the void. I’m going to get back to that in a minute.
These souls avoided Satan’s waters because they were in Christ. I don’t know about you, but that’s very encouraging to me. It tells me that if I’m in Christ, if I pursue Christ with all my strength, that I have a viable relationship with Him, that there is nothing that Satan can throw at me that will overtake me. As I studied the account of the flood, in the interlinear text, I saw that the higher the waters arose, the ark just stayed up on top of the waters in Noah’s case. If you look at the interlinear text, that’s what it says. No matter how high the waters rose, the ark just stayed on top of the waters. Satan cannot drown us, brethren, if we abide in Christ. He will always be above Satan’s negative energy. That was in the void from the beginning. I don’t believe that the Kabbalists believe this but we know here that Satan, the serpent, was a part of the creation from the beginning. The serpent is the negative energy that filled the void when the light of the Ayn Sof was contracted. The serpent was there from the beginning. The negative energy, the anti-figure, the shadow, of the light of the Ayn Sof that was in the void. Praise the Lord.
Verse 21 from the King James; The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us. Like figure of what? The like figure; I guess the surface meaning of the King James is the like figure whereunto of Noah. Even baptism doth also now save us. I never understood that scripture. Maybe there are Christians who do, but I never understood that scripture. How is baptism likened unto Noah’s flood waters because Noah didn’t go under the waters. With baptism you go under the waters, so I don’t understand that. Not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God by the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Let’s take a look at our Alternate Translation. We’re into Leviathan, the anti-type. That’s a translation of like figure. The Greek word translated like figure means anti-type. The King James translators said like figure, but it doesn’t mean like figure, it means unlike figure. How did they come to that conclusion? There are a lot of these issues in the King James Translation. There’s a lot of error. It’s the best thing available, but everybody that has idolatry for the King James Translation, you need to know there are a lot of errors in it.
The Greek word translated like figure doesn’t mean like figure, it means unlike figure. It means anti-type. We’re into Leviathan, the anti-type of Christ. The anti-type of Christ is also trying to save us by baptism, by baptizing us into the serpent’s flesh. I made some changes to verse 20 as I see more clearly what the Lord is saying. This is the Alternate Translation of verse 20 and 21. Which spirits that the fallen Adam is guarding for the serpent could not be persuaded to believe God, when at that time in the previous age, God waited patiently for Christ, the ark, to be prepared within Noah by which eight puny animal souls were saved from the negative energy of the serpent. What does that mean? It means that Noah was the vessel. We might say that Noah was the preacher. He was the leader that led these eight souls to a safe place as the serpent’s waters arose. As God waited patiently for Christ, the ark, to be prepared within Noah, the faithful preacher to God. The preacher was faithful to God. By which preacher who the ark was in, eight puny animal souls were saved from the serpent’s negative energy.
Why puny souls? These were nefesh. Those of us that might know, there are five levels of soul; nefesh, ruach, neshamah, chayyah and yechida, but these eight souls that were saved, they were only nefesh. Souls; the word in the Greek is psuche, Strong’s #5590. It’s the equivalent of the nefesh level of soul. The scripture calls them puny souls. They only have one fifth of the whole soul. The Kabbalists are always talking to the Jews and teaches that they can only hope for a nefesh, a ruah and a neshamah in this life. They say chayyah and yechida is not available, but in Christ Jesus, chayyah and yechida are available to us. At the very least, the Kabbalists say that a man, today, could attain to a nefesh, a ruach and a neshamah. These souls that were saved, they were puny animal souls that were just nefesh. Which spirits that the fallen Adam is guarding for the serpent could not be persuaded to believe God, when at that time in the previous age, God waited patiently for Christ, the ark, to be prepared within Noah by which preacher eight puny animal souls were saved from the negative energy of the serpent.
Verse 21; Whereunto Leviathan, the anti-type (that’s a translation of like figure) of Christ, Leviathan, the anti-type of Christ, is now trying to protect us by baptizing us into the serpent’s flesh. Remember in a previous verse I said that fallen Adam is now married to Leviathan and all confused and fallen Adam is still obeying Jehovah’s commandment to guard the garden. We are the garden, only fallen Adam is guarding the garden for Leviathan, guarding the spirits of humanity against Christ on behalf of Leviathan. That’s what this is talking about here. Whereunto Leviathan, the anti-type of Christ, who is the ark, is now trying to protect us by baptizing us into the serpent’s flesh. What does this mean, is now trying to protect us? Initially tried to protect us by guarding us, by blocking us from Christ? In addition to blocking us from Christ, this confused fallen Adam is trying to protect us by baptizing us into the serpent’s flesh. How do you get baptized into the serpent’s flesh? Just like you get baptized into the body of Christ. You get baptized into the body of Christ when the Spirit of Christ pours out on you. Leviathan is a spirit and the name of that spirit is Satan and this is the flood waters. Satan is the flood waters and the rising of Satan’s waters intends to baptize or completely immerse the person that Satan is rising in into the flesh of the serpent rather than the body of Christ into the body of Leviathan or the body of the serpent. Sometimes I get the names of these elements mixed up, but are you following me at all in what I’m talking about?
Whereunto Leviathan, the anti-type of Christ is now this confused female Adam trying to protect us or to save humanity by baptizing us into the serpent’s flesh or the body of the serpent. Put away your carnal mind because Satan is the unconscious part of your carnal mind and she is trying to baptize you into the serpent’s flesh, so put away that carnal mind, that spiritual filth. On the contrary, let Christ, the good conscience that you received by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, answer to God. This is very interesting. Put away your carnal mind, that spiritual filth. I have to think about that; it may be put away Satan. The spiritual filth is really Satan. I’ll have to work on that. Instead of receiving what Satan has to offer you, on the contrary, receive Christ, the good conscience. If Christ is the good conscience, that means that Satan is your bad conscience. You have a good conscience and you have a bad conscience. Put away your bad conscience. Let Christ be the good conscience that you receive by the resurrection of Jesus Christ. What is that? It is the seed of Christ. The Holy Spirit is not a conscience. The Holy Spirit sets your feet dancing. The Holy Spirit comes with gifts. It’s not a conscience. The Holy Spirit is not the conscience of Christ.
Let the good conscience of Christ, the seed of Christ, the seed of His resurrected life, the male, the bridegroom, be received because Jesus Christ was resurrected. The male seed of Christ would not be available to you if Jesus Christ was not resurrected. On the contrary, let Christ, the good conscience that you received by the resurrection of Jesus Christ answer to God. That is such an interesting concept. I’ve preached it to you many times. I have it in the Alternate Translation at one point. I think it was when Jesus was asking Peter to feed His sheep and Jesus wound up asking Peter three times to feed His sheep. Finally in the Alternate Translation Jesus says to Peter; Peter, you’ve got a problem. I keep asking you a question, I keep talking to you, I keep talking to your Christ mind and Satan keeps rising up and answering me. I, as a minister of Christ, talk to people all the time. I talk to Christ in them and their carnal mind answers me. We haven’t had it here in a while, but I would say to you that’s the wrong answer. That’s the wrong answer. We’ve had our struggles here because some people thought I was telling them they couldn’t have their own opinion and that’s not what I was saying. What I was saying was the wrong mind in you answered me. I will accept any answer that comes out of the Christ mind. When I tell you that’s the wrong answer, that means the wrong mind is speaking to me. I find this so interesting. I’ve been telling you that for years. Have I not? Then here we find it in an alternate translation of the scripture. I’m going to read the whole thing through once. It’s very late and if you have no questions we’ll quit for tonight.
Which spirits that the fallen Adam is guarding for the serpent, could not be persuaded to believe God when at that time in the previous age God waited patiently for Christ, the ark, or the ark of God, to be prepared within Noah by which eight puny animal souls were saved from the negative energy of the serpent which was rising to baptize them into the body of the serpent. Whereunto Leviathan, the anti-type of Christ is now trying to protect us by baptizing us into the serpent’s flesh, so put away your carnal mind, at least put away Satan, the unconscious part of your carnal mind, that spiritual filth. On the contrary, let Christ, the good conscience you receive by the resurrection of Jesus Christ answer to God. Very interesting. I have to do a little fine tuning on these two verses, but this is a fantastic translation.
Let me just take a look in the King James at the next verse; I Peter 3:22. Who has gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him. The only thing I want to point out to you in that verse is that angels are not referring to God’s angels. Didn’t you always think that was referring to God’s angels? No, there are evil angels, but now that Jesus Christ is on the right hand of God, the evil angels are subject to Him.
If Christ in you is the good angel, Leviathan in you is the bad angel. That means that all of the angels on Leviathan’s side are now subject to the Glorified Christ. Also authorities, that’s the collective Leviathan and powers being Satan, are subject to Him. What this is saying is that now that Jesus Christ is glorified, the whole carnal mind is subject to Him. If you have Christ, you have a weapon that has a greater authority than that of the carnal mind; the conscious, the unconscious, and the subconscious part of the carnal mind. The reason these words are plural is that they exist in the many members of humanity. Satan, Leviathan and Cain exist in the many members of humanity.
Okay I’m going to let you go. It’s very late. It was an exciting evening. I will see whether or not the Lord wants me to do the first three verses of Chapter 4 on Sunday. I don’t know. I may just go right into the Zohar because the next three verses are really not that important. I was just going to try and pull it all together. I didn’t think it would take this long to do these few verses. Are there any questions or comments? Praise the Lord. God bless you and goodnight.
