Praise the Lord, everybody. The first two parts of this message was a study of scriptures in the New Testament, a way of introducing us to the concepts that the Lord is going to use to help us to understand a passage in the Zohar. Today, I am going to read that passage to you, and then we have some New Testament scriptures and some more introduction before we actually start to interpret this paragraph. There may be more than one paragraph. This is the area of the Zohar that we will be dealing with. 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 Bara shith, meaning creative 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, graved 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 place, for it is the key which shuts and opens. 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 is hence called the Mysterious Gate. All these gates have one lock and there is one tiny spot for the insertion of the key, which 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, meaning Bereshith (or in the Hebrew, in the beginning is Bara shith) 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 not 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. So long as the world was locked within the term, bara, it was not in a state of being or existence. Over the hole there hovered Tohu, meaning chaos, and as long as Tohu dominated, 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, as it is written. These are the generations of the heavens and the earth, bara ham, meaning when they were created. That is Genesis 2:4. Bara ham is an anagram of the word Abraham. They're talking about the transposition of letters of the name Abraham. Now remember that the Hebrew letters signify different strings of energy. Kabbalah teaches that this whole world is formed from the interweaving of many strings of energy. This whole world is founded on strings of energy. We know that our scientists, today, have discovered strings of energy and there is a whole theory called "string theory" that comes out of that information.
The whole visible world is a tapestry that is appearing because multitudes of strings of energy have been woven together to produce a visible world. That is what is being spoken about here in the Zohar. They are saying that the first time that fruitfulness appeared was in Abraham. I am skipping over this technical material. Thus he made the world unfold itself in Abraham and made the name complete, as it had not been hither to. Thus we have the verse; These are the generations or the unfoldings of the heaven and the earth when they were created. That is, the whole creation was in suspense until the name of Abraham was created. As soon as the name of Abraham was completed, the sacred name was completed along with it. As it says further, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heaven. Rabbi Hyer then prostrated himself on the earth, kissed the dust, and said weeping; dust, dust, how stiff-necked are thou, how shameless art thou, that all the delights of the eye perish within thee. All the beacons of light, thou consumes and grindest into nothingness, fly on thy shamelessness, thou sacred lamp that illuminated the world, the mighty spiritual force, by whose merits the world exists is consumed by thee. Oh Rabbi Simeon, thou beacon of light, source of light to the world, how has thou turned to dust, thou leader of the world whilest alive. After falling for a moment into a reverie, he continued, oh dust, dust, pride not thyself for the pillars of the world will not be delivered into thy power nor will Rabbi Simeon perish within me.
We're going to be interpreting this passage. I don't have any immediate intentions of translating it, although you never know. I have already put a drawing on the board. I think that is going to be drawing #2. Let us take a picture of this, please. The Lord turned around the order of my message a little bit, so I hope I have not confused you. Drawing #1 is definitions. I pulled most of these definitions from the passage of the Zohar I just read you. Thereafter I have two definitions that the Lord is working into this message. The number 6, in the passage I just read, talks about the created six or the six who were created. These are the six sefirot of Ze'ir Anpin, who to us, today, in this hour, is manifested as Christ Jesus. The Holy and the Mysterious One is Binah. The point that Binah is bringing forth is Malkhut, the physical creation. The key is the Glorified Jesus Christ. The fifty gates are the five worlds and the ten sefirot that are present in each world. Ten times five is fifty; ten sefirot or ten gates within each of the five worlds. The mysterious gate is the Glorified Jesus Christ and we will get into that later. The impress of the key is Abel. Tohu, I remind you, is emotional chaos. The dust is Abel when he is overcome by Cain. We learned that from the Doctrine Of Christ. We have a whole series, a multi-part message called Dust. When Abel is not overcome by Cain, he becomes the spiritual part of the land called Christ. I also added two definitions that are not in that passage of the Zohar, but which apply to how the Lord is bringing this message forth.
The inheritance that the Bible speaks about is the land. Joshua 1:6 clearly tells us that that which is promised to Israel is the land. Joshua 1:6; Be strong and of good courage. This is being spoken to Joshua. For unto this people shall thou divide for an inheritance the land which I swear unto their fathers to give them. We see that the inheritance is the land. What is not understood, frequently, is that there is a spiritual land to inherit. There is a physical land and a spiritual land. The inheritance is the land of Israel which was already given. The land of Israel was already given. I do not know what is happening in the future with the land of Israel, but I don't see anything in the Scripture that tells me it is going to be given twice. I do see, however, that we are to receive an eternal inheritance, which is the spiritual land of Christ in the individual. As I study Kabbalistic material, I see there are different Kabbalist leaders with different opinions. They don't all agree. What I have read is that miracles can only take place in the physical land of Israel. This is why many Jews are fighting feverishly to hold onto the physical land of Israel. Believe me, I don't want to be misunderstood, and I am not in any way against holding the land of Israel. I am coming from a spiritual point of view. Maybe some Jews want Israel as a homeland, but the Jews that were spiritual, from my understanding, seem to think that they must possess the land of Israel in order for the spiritual life and the spiritual power that they received in the days of Moses, to be restored.
I do not know whether that is true or not. What I do know is that there is a spiritual land and that spiritual land is Christ. That spiritual land is given to be internalized in the individual. Wherever that individual goes, all of the supernatural promises and all of the supernatural abilities that exist when one is present in the physical land of Israel, is present with the man who has internalized Christ, wherever he goes in the world. Whether it is the natural Jew or the spiritual Jew, we are not restricted to a physical piece of land in order to have the relationship with God that produces miracles. We take the land with us. I don't know what the Lord's plan is for physical Israel. I do not have any such understanding either way. I am not for it and I am not against it. I know that there are certain Kabbalists, and certain orthodox groups, that say the Israel that exists, today, does not exist because it is a fulfilment of prophesy, because Israel will only be restored after Messiah comes. It will be Messiah who will restore Israel.
If we put that point of view together with what I know to be true, the land that is being given to us today is the land of Christ, the internalized land, that attracts and equips us with supernatural power. This is being internalized in us in Christ. If that is the case, the Lord may not be restoring Israel in a natural way. I do not know. We will find out. At the very least, I know that the ultimate provision, the ultimate fulfilment of the promise of the land is spiritual. It is a spiritual land. It is Christ that we internalize, that we take with us wherever we go. When Christ is internalized in us, He brings a world with Him and He brings a community with Him. As an example, you can look and see what has happened in the expanded Church. What we see in the Church today is not even Christ. It is the Holy Spirit. It is the female that goes before Christ. The Holy Spirit that we see in the Church, today, is not the Holy Spirit that was in Israel. That Holy Spirit, that was in Israel, can be likened to what we call, today, the Spirit of Christ, the male Spirit.
In the Church, today, we have the female aspect of the Glorified Jesus Christ. Wherever the Glorified Jesus Christ, wherever Christ internalized goes, that is the land. Wherever that land may be, wherever Christ is, where that man is that Christ is internalized in, the Lord builds His Kingdom and He takes the land within him. That is the principle of the new covenant, which is really not a new covenant. Like John said, I give you a commandment, but it is not really a new commandment. I have been telling you this all along. It just appears to be new because it is a new understanding of the covenant that God made with Abraham. That new understanding is Christ in you, the hope of glory, this spiritualization of the promises.
To start this study, we are going to go over a few New Testament scriptures talking about the inheritance of the land. My understanding of the reason the Lord is telling me to start this way is that He is going to make His point before we actually do the study. There are three aspects to His point, the inheritance of the land, and that it is spiritual and that it is not physical. I'm speaking to the Jew, who the Lord loves dearly, who He has promised will be grafted back into his own tree. What does that mean? Before any Jew listening to this message or reading this message gets mad at me, what does it mean, he will be re-grafted back into his own tree? What it means is, that all of the power and glory that Israel no longer has, which you, the Jew, also want to see restored, will be restored to you. Don't get hung up on my words. We are going to go over these scriptures which talk about the inheritance and establish the eternal inheritance, the land that will never be taken from us. It is the land that will never deteriorate or be destroyed, that eternal home, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Then we will talk about the spiritual lifetime. After that we will talk about the personification of the middle column. The whole point being this, that to date, no one has been able to convince the Jew that Jesus, the Glorified Christ, is Messiah. He was Messiah in the days of His flesh and in His glorification. He has been so completely unified with God that He has become the garment of God and is God. Jesus of Nazareth, glorified, Jesus the Christ, glorified, is the spiritual garment. He is the garment. His personality is the garment that now covers Jehovah and Jehovah has become personified.
We now have a spiritual mediator, who has internalized the experience of being a mortal man, and therefore, through Him, it has made a way for Jehovah to more easily communicate with mankind. The Glorified Jesus Christ has experienced being a mortal man, and because He has the elements of that humanity in Him, we now have a complete unification of God and man in a spiritual form that is capable of sprinkling upon other fallen men, and producing the same transition and conversion within them. For years Jehovah appeared as, what we would call, the imputed Christ inside the men of Israel. The unification of that internalized Christ, and the humanity or the personality of the man, never succeeded in being woven together to the point that it saved the personality of the man. Why? It is my understanding, today, that the Jew could not grasp this concept that God was in him, separate from him, and that he, the Jew, had to submit to that higher grace within him. This is my understanding, even from this very passage in the Zohar, a portion that I did not read because it was too difficult. It indicates to me that the Jew believes that the elements of God do weave together with the man, as in the case of Abraham, and therefore, Abraham became fruitful. They do not see the fruitful Abraham, still in his fruitful condition, as separate from an individual personalized God in the midst of him. They perceive that when God comes to a man, He weaves together with a man and the man is now a great man of God that still dies for some reason. I do not know what their reasoning is.
They do not see the necessity for the death of the fallen mind after the weaving together. The fallen mind must die so that the greatness of God can prevail in our thinking. Everything has to do with our thinking. That is my understanding. I have been asking the Lord, for several years now, how to reach the Jew with this concept. This great, wonderful work, that is available to them, will relieve them from all of the work and meditation that they do to get close to God to receive revelation and everything they want from God. It is so much easier in Christ, but they perceive the teachings of the Church as idolatry. Today, of course, there are many errors in the Church, that are, indeed, idolatrous. So the Lord had commissioned this ministry to study the teachings of Kabbalah, and it has been such a great blessing to me. Studying Kabbalah has increased my knowledge and my wisdom and my understanding. Now that I have been and am being blessed, the Lord has given me the opportunity to try to show in Kabbalistic terms and in terms of revelation, The Christ. It is more accurate than a lot of revelation that is in the Church, how there is a mediator, and how He is personalized, and how this middle column continues to exist, and must take authority over the natural man. It is such a fine line, how the natural man, that God comes to dwell in, must die to himself. He must die to his own ego, and when he dies to his own ego, the indwelling God (which we believe to be the Glorified Jesus Christ in the form of Christ in the individual) shines through.
When Christ shines through that personality, that has died to his ego, the person is raised from the dead and becomes great with Christ ruling through him. This is the message that I see the Lord giving me to preach, today, to try to bring understanding concerning that fine line. I'm going to repeat it. What I see, in the portion of the Zohar that I just read, is a teaching that says the elements of God, the strings of the Spirit of God, come and weave together with a man. They call it the rearranging of the letters of His name, and then that man becomes great in God. What they are talking about is the reversing of Cain's domination over Abel. They are talking about the resurrection of Abel and his Godly domination of Cain. But I do not see anything, at all, of understanding beyond this conversion, this reversal or this reconfiguration of the spiritual letters, that form the nature and the spiritual being of a man. There is no understanding that after the man is made holy, made fruitful, there is still a holy mind present, within the individual, that must be submitted to, in order to be returned to the glory of Israel in the days of Moses. That is what I see missing. The line is very fine. As I said, we are going to talk about these few scriptures that describe the land. We are going to talk about the spiritual lifetime.
Why are we going to talk about the spiritual lifetime? Again, what I see, at least in the Kabbalistic writings that I have read, is that the Jew understands about previous incarnations. We will make that drawing #2 of Jesus as an example. The angel Michael incarnated as Enoch; Enoch reincarnated as Moses; Moses reincarnated as Elijah; and Elijah reincarnated as Jesus, the Christ. Now Jesus, the Christ, is reincarnating as a different form of reincarnation. Now Jesus, the Christ, is reincarnating by ibur, by grafting. He is reincarnating by attaching Himself to people that have already been born. It is not by gilgul. All of the other incarnations that I mention are called gilgul. These are the personalities or the remnants of the personality of these great men incarnated at birth. Moses incarnated at birth. Moses and Elijah were present at birth within Jesus of Nazareth. They were born together with the soul or the personality of Jesus. But today Christ Jesus is incarnating by ibur. He is grafting to people who are not only already born, but usually who are adults. In the event that a child receives that grafted seed, it is not an infant, at least not at this time. My understanding, again from the Kabbalistic writings, is that the Jew understands this concept of spiritual lifetime, that we have elements of our previous incarnations within us, whether they be good or evil. We all inherit a spiritual inheritance as well as a mental and a physical inheritance. Just like some children are born with a bad temper or with blonde hair or with a great intellect or with a musical ability, we also inherit spiritual potential based on our previous incarnations.
So I see, according to my understanding of the Kabbalistic writings, that the Jew understands that. Any greatness they perceive in a man, they attribute to the previous incarnation. They do not attribute it to an indwelling presence of the mind of God in the individual. They do not comprehend that possibility. Of course, this is a new concept to them, because before Jesus was glorified that was the situation. Spiritual greatness came from the incarnation of an entity that existed in a previous lifetime where that being or that spirit spent his whole lifetime serving God. They have not been able, to the best of my understanding, to take that quantum leap. As we will be able to see in drawing #2, Enoch, Moses, Elijah and Jesus were all human beings that were incarnated by gilgul at birth with greatness. Today, Jesus Christ is glorified and He exists as a living, vital spiritual man, who is living inside of individuals that He is grafting Himself to, and He is maintaining His own identity. He, who is the middle column, is not being woven together with the new man, making the new man great and then no acknowledgment of His Spirit, His life, and His might. There is no such acknowledgment, to the best of my understanding.
That is what we are going to try to deal with today. We are going to try to present that concept. I hope and pray the Lord gives me the ability, as we go along, because it is such a fine line and I feel that I have not made the point in the introduction that I have given you. I do, however, trust God that He will give me the words and the ability to make this point because there are many people out there, many Jews out there, crying out to God for the restoration of Israel. On the other hand, I read rabbis' material saying that a lot of rabbis are alarmed because many secular Jews are returning to Judaism and going to yeshiva, but they are not bonding to Jehovah. What does that mean? It means that the old has passed away, my fellow Jew. In order to be close to God, and have all the profit and benefits of a spiritual relationship with God, you now have to go in the new path that He has cut out for you.
It is two thousand years and He has had mercy on you for two thousand years. What does that mean? He has continued to bond with Jews in the form or under the name Jehovah for two thousand years. Now there is a new way, a new door, a new path, a new gate that has opened. There is a new gate that has opened that has access to the promises of God. These gates have the same promise as the promises of Israel in earlier times, but because it was so difficult to enter in with an imputed Christ, Israel could not do it.
Now the solution has been given. It has already been done for you. What does that mean, my fellow Jew? It means that in the past there was a presence of God that entered into you. I call it an imputed Christ or an imputed manifestation of God. It wove together with your personality, which was what it was supposed to do, and it made you great, as it made Abraham. As soon as you became great, you, my fellow Jew, started worshiping the man that became great and not the Christ within him or not the God within him.
That is demonstrated by the last paragraph that I read to you from the Zohar. This is what it says. Rabbi Hyer then prostrated himself on the earth, kissed the dust, and kept weeping; dust, dust, how stiff-necked art thou, how shameless art thou, that all the delights of the eye perish within you, all the beacons of light thou consumes and grindest into nothingness. Now the beacons of light that he is talking about are the great men of God, that the light of God shone through. He is saying that dust or death has overtaken every great man of God. That is what he is saying, but he is condemning the dust; Fly on your shamelessness, the sacred lamp, that illuminated the world. Now here he is talking about a rabbi that has passed on; that sacred lamp that illuminated the world, the mighty spiritual force by whose merits the world exists. He is giving the glory to the rabbi who died instead of to the God that wove Himself together with the rabbi; that sacred lamp that illuminated the world, the mighty spiritual force, by whose merits the world exists, is consumed by thee.
Rabbi Simeon, thou beacon of light. You see, this is how we know that he is not honoring the God in Rabbi Simeon because it says right here; Oh Rabbi Simeon, thou beacon of light, source of light to the world, how hast thou turned to dust, thou leader of the world whilest alive. So we see here a subtle idolatry for the man that the imputed Spirit of God shined through. That sacred lamp that illuminated the world, the mighty spiritual force by whose merits the world exists is consumed by you. You know what the Lord is telling me this means? All the beacons of light that consume and grindest into nothingness? He is really talking about the fallen personality. He is saying, shame on you; that sacred lamp that illuminated the world, the mighty spiritual force. He is talking about God here. The mighty spiritual force by whose merits the world exists is consumed by you. I still believe that that is what is being said here. He is giving all the glory to this great man of God, saying that the dust of the fallen personality consumed him, the mighty spiritual force by whose merits the world exists. I could be wrong, but I don't think that would be said about God. God does not have merits or demerits. It is only a man that has merits or demerits. If I am reading this correctly, he is saying that it is this great man of God that had so many merits, that the world exists by him. There is no glory to the immortal eternal God in the midst of it. It is such a fine line. Am I making it clear at all? Maybe I am making it clear to the people here. I, personally, do not think that I would be able to reach a Jew with this present explanation, but I trust that the Lord will give me what needs to be said. Let us go on with the message.
We are going to read some New Testament scriptures now on the inheritance. We want to find out what this inheritance is. As I suggested earlier, in the Old Testament, the inheritance was the land of Israel, the physical land of Israel. I understand that there is no New Testament. It is just a continuation, but I say New and Old Testament because we have a lot of Christians studying with us and they need that distinction to follow along with what I am saying. I do understand there is no Old or New Testament, there is just the Scripture of God. Mark 12:7; But those husbandmen said among themselves, this is the heir. Come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours. So we see, that in his thought, that this inheritance can be stolen. There was no understanding, at all, as to Jesus carrying the inheritance. Let us kill this man, and the inheritance shall be ours. Acts 26:18; To open their eyes and to turn them from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. That inheritance is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Let me read it again. To open their eyes and to turn them from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and with the forgiveness of sins, the inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith, that is in me. So we see that when Christ is indwelling in us, we receive forgiveness of sins.
I want to go back to Mark 12:7 for a minute. But those husbandmen said among themselves, this is the heir. Come, let us kill him and the inheritance shall be ours. Apparently, they had no recognition, no understanding, at all, that it would be the Glorified Man that would give them the true inheritance, the spiritual land. Galatians 3:18; For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise, but God gave it to Abraham by promise. So here we see Paul saying that you cannot get the inheritance by the law. What does that mean? Well, it means by the law, physical land is bequeath to you. What is the law? Did not the United Nations make a law that made Israel legal? That is how you get physical inheritance, by the law. The law says this land belongs to you. Paul says, if the law has to make it belong to you, it is no longer a promise because something that is promised to you is given above and beyond the laws of men. It is a spiritual inheritance. Ephesians 1:11; In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will.
Brethren, for a long time I struggled with this predestination because I have heard it preached that some men are predestinated and others are not predestinated. What this means is that humanity, at large, has been predestined to obtain the inheritance. All of humanity, humanity as a whole, has been predestined. Some individual members of humanity may not inherit it and their personality will dissolve after they pass out of this world, but we are all of the same lump of clay. Paul clearly says, we are all made of the same lump. When someone passes out of this world without having arrived to be in Christ, the personality dissolves and goes back into the lump and the lump is reformed. The lump has been predestined. It is the whole lump that has been predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will to obtain the inheritance. The lump of clay that has been formed into the man, all of which we are cells, we have all been predestinated to obtain the inheritance which is Christ in you, the hope of glory, which will give permanence to your formation of the pinch of clay that you are formed out of.
Ephesians 1: 13-14; In whom ye also trusted after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed by the spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. After you hear the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, in whom also after that you believed you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. After you heard the gospel of salvation, after you received it, after you believed it and received it in your heart, you receive the seal or the mark of the Holy Spirit of promise, which Holy Spirit is the earnest or the down payment of our inheritance. The inheritance is Christ. The Holy Spirit is given to point us to Christ. Paul is calling the Holy Spirit of promise, the down payment of the inheritance. The Holy Spirit, brethren, is not the inheritance. Christ is the inheritance. Today, the Church struggles, but has not entered into Christ. The Church, by and large, is a manifestation of the Holy Spirit of promise, the female aspect of the promise. The Lord wants to mature us into manhood.
This message is given and the whole of the Doctrine of Christ is given in the hope of maturing humanity and the Church, in particular, into spiritual manhood. The Church is fighting. The Church does not want to go forward. Brethren, the female Church, the Bride, is abiding in a gay spirit. She likes sex with other women rather than with the man, the bridegroom, Christ. She likes to interact with other Christians on a female level. She likes to think that she is the man going out and trying to save people. She does not want to look up and see the bridegroom, the male who is waiting for her to turn towards Him and receive His nature. The Church needs to repent of homosexuality on the spiritual plane. They do not want to have spiritual sex with the man, who will then dominate them, and rule over them, and bring them into His image. This is exactly what I talk about in Part 1 and Part 2 of this message. It is the same thing that happened in the garden, where the female Adam is talking to the Serpent and looking towards the Serpent as the woman, and does not look up to see the spiritual male above her.
Nothing has changed, brethren. What is happening in the Church today is the same thing that happened in the garden. Only what happened in the garden happened in the invisible World of Creation and today it is happening in the visible World of Action. It is the same thing. According to this teaching of the Zohar, which I will get into more deeply later on, although I mentioned it in previous messages, human beings are not alive until Christ starts to be formed in them. The only part of humanity that is alive, as far as God is concerned, is the Church, because the Holy Spirit is touching them. The Church is the bride, the female Adam, who is talking to the Serpent. She is only interested in the unsaved world, which is underneath her, which she can minister to, which she can feel superior to, which she can help. She is not willing to humble herself and receive the impress or the mark of the Glorified Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 1:18; The eyes of your understanding being enlightened that you may know what is the hope of his calling and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance is in the saints. I think I have to go back to Ephesians 1:13-14 right now to say that the Jew is in the same condition as the Church today. The Jew, today, is in the same condition as the Church. The Jew is the bride and the bridegroom is in the earth waiting, and desiring to teach these great teachers, desiring to teach and engrave His nature upon the Jews that have been serving, as best they know how, according to the law faithfully. But the Jews, as well as the Church, do not want to look up and receive the impress of their God and their spiritual husband. They want to be the man. Both the Church and the Jew wants to be the man, but the truth is you are not the man. You are the woman and you need to humble yourself before the mighty Spirit of God and receive His nature and receive His instruction and receive His understanding, that you might become the spiritual man, that you might become the bridegroom and minister to others in Christ, not out of your carnal mind.
Ephesians 1:18; The eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that you may know what is the hope of His calling and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints. So here we are getting into the eternal inheritance, not the inheritance of the physical land, but the glory that is in the inheritance of His life, of His seed, of His sperm dwelling in you and marrying your own spiritual potential, making you truly great in Christ Jesus. But in your greatness, we must follow Jesus' example. Jesus was great because God was in Him reconciling the world unto Himself and yet this great man said, I do or say nothing other than what the Father tells me to say or do. He is our example. God said to Moses, split the Red Sea and Moses did it. The fact that we have power does not mean that we can use it at will. The problem that we have is distinguishing between the will of the indwelling Christ and the will of our own ego. For disobedience the Jews were overthrown in the wilderness. They could not tell the difference between the mind of the indwelling God within them and their own ego.
Hebrews 1:4; Being made so much better than the angels as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. I thought this was so interesting. Jesus, being so much better than the angels because He hath inherited a more excellent name than the angels because He received an inheritance. What I believe that means is that an angel is an aspect of God, but we have to realize that God is so great that every cell in His body has a consciousness that is greater than any man. It is as if to say, using our heart for example, our heart has a function. It beats and it keeps us alive. All the cells of our heart know what they are supposed to do and they keep us alive. Well, angels are the cells. To be honest with you, I am not sure, but for now I am going to say angels are the cells of Adam Kadmon, and they go forth and do what they need to do to sustain his existence in the lower worlds. Jesus inherited all of the greatness of the accumulated Michael, Enoch, Moses and Elijah and each angel has his own program function. He is just one entity. The more excellent inheritance, that Jesus received, is that He received the accumulation of greatness. Brethren, it is the same principle as to what makes man greater than an animal. That is not from a spiritual point of view. That is from a natural point of view. What makes man greater than the animals? It is language, brethren, language. Man can write down and make a record of everything that he learned and pass it on to the next generation. That is how we get greater. The present generation in a few years, five, ten, twenty, thirty years, can study and acquire a great deal of the knowledge that has been recorded and then go on creatively from there. That is how humanity has become as great as it is in this natural world. The angels do not have any such ability. The more excellent inheritance is the accumulation of the knowledge and wisdom and experience in God that Jesus inherited. Therefore, according to this understanding, we too, are eligible for a more excellent name than the angels because we have access to all of the accumulated knowledge, wisdom, understanding and power that was in Christ Jesus in the days of His flesh, and even more so because, today, He is glorified. Brethren, that power, that knowledge, that wisdom, that ability, is being fed to us with an eye dropper because there is no way God is giving us power when our carnal mind is likely to use it to retaliate against someone that hurts our feelings. Praise the Lord.
Hebrews 9:15; For this cause he is the mediator of the New Testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance, a land that will never die, a land that is internalized, an eternal land that can never be taken from the soul that is anchored to it. For this cause, Jesus, the Christ, is the mediator of the New Testament. He is the One that brings the knowledge and understanding and the power of the New Testament, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. That by means of death for the redemption of their transgressions. Now everybody says that means by the means of Jesus' death. No, brethren, by means of your death, by the means of the death of your carnal mind. You cannot receive this eternal inheritance so long as your own ego is ruling and reigning. I should not say that. You can receive it, but your own ego, as long as it is ruling and reigning, will destroy it, and it will never be manifested and effected in you. But, nevertheless, for this cause, Christ in you is the mediator of the New Testament. Christ in you is your ability to acquire the promises of the New Testament. Christ in you is the New Testament in you, so that by means of death, when your carnal mind dies, for the redemption of the transgression that were under the first testament.
Well, I have to interpret that. Let me start again. For this cause, Christ in you, is the mediator. He is the new covenant in you, so that when your carnal mind dies or when you die to your carnal mind, so that you can be redeemed from the judgments that are upon you, because of the transgression that occurred when you were still under the law or the first testament, they which are called, or all of you who are called, so that all of you who are called, might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. One more time. So for this reason, Christ in you, is the mediator or the actual New Testament or the potential for you to acquire the inheritance of the New Testament, in you, so that when your ego dies by means of death, so that you can be redeemed because of the transgressions that you and your ancestors committed while they were under the law. All of this is given to you so that they which are called (that is everybody called) might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. They which are called; all of humanity is one man. His name is Adam. Adam is called to redemption. Adam has many cells. Every cell will not experience redemption. Some will pass out of this world, but then his body will regenerate new cells. The whole man is called. He is called to receive the promise of eternal inheritance. Each one of us is a cell.
Listen, I am going to repeat something. What did I tell you the angels are? I just told you. The angels are cells in the body of Adam Kadmon and they are programmed to do one thing. Maybe they are programmed to do multiple things, but they have a programming, they have assignments. They do not inherit the accumulated greatness of other cells of Adam Kadmon. Every human being, who are we? We are the cells of the body of the fallen Adam and every human being has a function or multiple functions. We are the cells of the fallen Adam and we are programmed to do one or a few multiple functions. We do not have the accumulated inheritance of the greatness of the whole. What we have is the accumulated sin nature of the whole which causes us to die. We have inherited the sin nature of Adam who fell and we have inherited the judgment of death which is upon him. So any wisdom or devilish wisdom, as James talks about, that we may have inherited through the fallen Adam does us no good because we have inherited his death sentence.
The reason we are greater than the angels, not that angels as some believe, should be our servants, but the reason that we are greater than angels is that we have or we are eligible for the inherited accumulated greatness of the Glorified Jesus Christ, who is manifested to us, the fullness of Michael, Enoch, Moses, Elijah and Jesus, Himself. That is why we are higher than the angels. I want to tell you something else. You know we are fallen mankind. We are the angels. We are the evil angels that we see Michael fighting with in Revelation 12. So another way to look at this is that the human beings that have Christ in them, who are willing to die to their ego or to their carnal mind, we have a more excellent inheritance than the other human beings and the evil angels who have inherited the death sentence of Adam who died. Do you hear that? We are greater than the angels because we have inherited life and the evil angels of this world, which I think is what the scripture was talking about all along, they have inherited death. The reason the Scripture says, Jesus was made a little lower than the angels is that He was given to experience the death of the humanity that He entered into. He gave up His power. He was made a little lower than the angels. He gave up the power of His own ego, which makes you vulnerable in this world, so that He could be an example to the world of how strong you could be when God enters into your weakness.
I am going to say it again. Jesus was made a little lower than the angels of this world. The many members of the body of the dead Adam, who are evil angels. He was subjected to them. Why? Because He was crucified by them. He was persecuted by them. Why? Because He gave up His own power in this world. Did not Jesus say, if I were of this world I could call all kinds of angels and get off the cross and walk out of here? But He did not because His own ego, His own humanity, fight or flight, would say get me out of here and fight, but He did not fight. He was made lower. He was subjected to the evil of the men of this world, so that God's purposes could be accomplished and He could be exalted above the greatest of fallen men. Alleluia!!!
I Peter 1:4; To an inheritance, incorruptible, and undefiled, and that faded not away, reserved in heaven for you. The incorruptible and undefiled inheritance is the spiritual land of Christ in you, the hope of glory. It will not fade away because that land will be joined to the Glorified Jesus Christ, making the land now called Christ Jesus. It will not fade away. It will not be defiled and it will reserve a place for you in heaven because heaven is Christ Jesus. Christ Jesus is a drop of heaven, in you, and Christ Jesus, eventually, will permanently weave together with the Glorified Jesus Christ and heaven will come down to earth. This world that we live in, the physical world of your body, will become a manifestation of heaven, which it is not now. If you have any disease in you at all, even if you sleep, your physical body is not a manifestation of heaven. God never slumbers or sleeps. You are a fallen man. If you sleep, you are a fallen man. I do not care how healthy you are. If you sleep, that is the sign that you are a fallen man in a fallen body. God does not slumber or sleep and the body that He produces does not slumber or sleep. Praise the Lord. So the incorruptible and undefiled inheritance is your new man. Christ Jesus and the mind of Christ that is in Him, that will not fade away, and which will reserve a place in heaven for your personality. Your new man, Christ Jesus, will reserve a place for your personality in heaven.
Praise the Lord. This is drawing #3. We are dealing with a principle that we will find in the portion of the Zohar that we are dealing with. It is called Fifty Mystic Gates. This is what the Lord has told me the Fifty Mystic Gates are. We are talking about the five worlds; the World of Adam Kadmon, the World of Emanation, the World of Creation, the World of Formation and the World of Action. Within each of these worlds are the five partszufim; Arikh Anpin, Abba, Imma, Ze'ir Anpin and Nukva. There are six sefirots. Ze'ir Anpin has six sefirot and Nukva has one sefirot. Now fifty mystic gates. Let me read this over here first. There are ten gates in each world. Arikh Anpin, Abba, Imma, Ze'ir Anpin is six and Nukva is one. That is a total of ten gates in each world. Now here is the mystery. Arikh Anpin, Abba and Imma of each of the four lower worlds; that is the World of Emanation, the World of Creation, the World of Formation and the World of Action. These first three sefirot, Arikh Anpin, Abba and Imma in the four lower worlds are a manifestation of at least one sefirot of the World of Emanation, so they are not counted as gates. Let me take it one at a time and try to explain this to you. The way Arikh Anpin, Abba and Imma are formed in the World of Emanation is that the Chokhmah of Adam Kadmon or Abba of Adam Kadmon, descends into the lower world to form the lower world, to form the first three sefirot, which are called the head of the lower world. So Arikh Anpin, Abba and Imma of the World of Emanation are really a manifestation of the Chokhmah or Abba of the World of Adam Kadmon.
From that point of view, we only have seven gates in the World of Emanation, and that is the six of Ze'ir Anpin, and the one of Nukva. Arikh Anpin, Abba and Imma of the World of Creation are a manifestation of Imma of the World of Adam Kadmon. So we only have seven gates in the World of Creation, the six of Ze'ir Anpin and the one of Nukva. The head or the first three partszufim, Arikh Anpin, Abba and Imma of the World of Formation are a manifestation of Ze'ir Anpin of the World of Emanation. So again, we only have seven gates in the World of Formation, Ze'ir Anpin and Nukva. In the World of Assyr or the World of Action, where we are, Arikh Anpin, Abba and Imma of the World of Action are a manifestation of the Nukva of the World of Emanation, which has come down. Arikh, Abba and Imma of Adam Kadmon are the fiftieth gate up here. What I am saying to you is that Arikh Anpin, Abba and Imma of Adam Kadmon, that is the original light of the Infinite. Arikh, Abba and Imma of all the four other worlds are manifestations or extensions of this light, Arikh, Abba and Imma of the World of Adam Kadmon. That is the original light. So when we say seven gates in each world, we are talking about Ze'ir Anpin and Nukva of each world. Does that make any sense to you at all?
Now we are going to take a picture of this and I am going to do another drawing and show you the relationship of the fiftieth mystic gates because the Zohar says that there are seven gates on each side, and the fiftieth gate nobody knows where it is. I want to suggest to you that the fiftieth gate is the Lord Jesus Christ. He said I am the door. I am the gate. I stand there and knock and when you respond to me, if you invite me in, I'll let you into the fiftieth gate, which is the highest place that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to. Arikh, Abba and Imma of the World of Adam Kadmon, that is where Jesus the Christ ascended to. Now He has become the door to us to this high place; Arikh, Abba and Imma of the World of Adam Kadmon, the highest; the highest. We are going to take a picture here and I am going to show you this from a different perspective.
Praise the Lord. We have drawing # 4 on the board. I am going to read from a portion, of the portion of the Zohar, that we are dealing with. The Holy and Mysterious One graved 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. We see on the board my diagram of this palace, this palace, which is as valuable as all that is stored up in that palace. The key is as valuable as all that is stored up in the palace, for it is the key which shuts and opens. 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 is hence called the mysterious gate. That is the principle that we are dealing with now, again, in preparation for understanding the portion of the Zohar that has been separated out. Now as I prayed about the meaning of these fifty gates, the Lord showed me what I showed to you on drawing #1. As I pursued it further, the Lord related me to Ezekiel's glorified man. We have three scriptures concerning this glorified four sided man. One in Ezekiel 1:10; the other is Ezekiel 1:15, I believe. Then we read about him again in Revelation 4:7, I believe.
What I have drawn on drawing #4 is my understanding of what the Lord has shown me out of the passage that I just read in the Zohar. I want to suggest to you that that fiftieth gate is the glorified man. I want to suggest to you that the four sided man that we see in Ezekiel 1 is mortal Adam and it is a condition of our mind. This four sided man is a mind. Brethren, we are a mind and a personality and a body, but basically we are mind. The problem with fallen mankind is that we are living largely, if not a hundred percent, in the majority of cases, out of our physical body. We have fallen into the physical world and basically for large numbers of humanity, life is strictly physical. They labor to survive. They labor to have food to eat. They labor to have a house to live in. Their pleasure is physical, food, sex, human contact and affection. As men start to mature, we find that the mind is more developed, but the truth is that human beings cannot even look to the development of their mind until their physical needs are met. Therefore what has happened in the western world, the prosperity of the western world, of the industrial revolution, and all of the technology and the technological help that we have today, has freed mankind up to develop his mind.
The way back to God is through the development of the mind. The original Adam was a mind. Christ in you is a mind. When that mind develops to the necessary point, then the personality begins to come into the image of that mind and the physical body eventually will disappear and the whole creation will be offered up to the Father and the last enemy to be put underfoot is death. When that happens we are going to be all mind. Our bodies and our personalities will just be servants of our mind. Brethren, I certainly have not arrived. God knows that I have not arrived, but a large part of my life, a large part of my personality, which is my soul, is given over to the expression of the mind of Christ in me. My physical body, to whatever degree it takes me where the Lord wants me to go, is an expression of the mind of Christ in me. I do not think my physical body is expressing Christ very much these days. I look forward to a greater degree of healing and dexterity. I do not fully understand how my physical body can glorify God other than to go and preach where He tells me to. It is my personality and how I relate to people. The mind of Christ is shining through what I say to people when I speak the words of Christ.
The personality and the physical body is given as a home or a house for the mind of Christ and the mind of Christ is the expression of the Almighty God in the earth. God wants to have a relationship with the creature that He created. Every aspect of us is designed to reflect Himself and to glorify Him. Today, mankind is living out of the flesh and we are very far from God. Jesus called us outer darkness. So I suggest to you that Ezekiel 1:10 is a description of the mind of fallen man and the four aspects of that mind. It is the human spirit, the human soul, the unconscious part of the mind, and of course, the dichotomy of Cain and Abel, which is functioning as one today. The diagram shows it, in potential, that Abel, also called the human spirit, is the manhood of fallen man. That manhood is not functioning. The manhood of mortal Adam, of fallen Adam, is completely under the dominion of Cain, who is joined to Satan.
Then I suggest to you that Ezekiel 1: 14 is a diagram of the mind that is saved, the mind that is given over to Christ, the mind of the man that is now reflecting the nature of God. It is the mind of the Glorified Jesus Christ in Ezekiel 1: 14. In Revelation 4:7 we read about the mind of the sons of God. In Revelation we see that the Glorified Jesus Christ has expanded into a many membered offspring. So we see three aspects of the development of humanity or three aspects of the development of the mind of humanity, because to God, the physical body and the personality are just sheaths. They are just garments that the mind wears. Now the difference between the new man and the mind of Christ is that the new man is the whole person. The mind of Christ and the personality that envelops it, and for as long as we are in the flesh, the physical body also, but basically, just the mind and the personality is the new man. The old man is the carnal mind living through the personality and the new man is the Christ mind living through the personality. That is our old and new man. Either we are Christ or we are the devil. The old man is the devil. That is who the devil is.
As I read this portion of the Zohar in preparation to go on with this message, and I prayed about the fifty gates, the Lord showed me this truth and gave me this revelation. Of course, those of you who have been studying with me for a while know that this is what happens. I start out teaching one thing and as we walk along, the Lord shows us all kinds of truths and we go off on all kinds of tangents. Yet, we are not going off on a tangent because where we deviate to talk about something other than the text at hand, is in preparation for us to understand the text at hand. This is the situation with understanding the scripture and spiritual writings in general. If you do not have a grasp of the basic principles that have been compressed and compacted into a simple parable that compasses only a few paragraphs, if you do not understand those basic underlying principles, you will never be able to understand the unfolding of the spiritual paragraphs. We are only dealing with a few paragraphs here, but I have to stop to either review or teach you the foundational principles that will cause them to make sense. It is called an unfolding. It is called an opening of the seals. It is the opening of your mind, an expanding of your mind, to comprehend these few paragraphs that we read at the beginning of this message.
We are talking about the palace. The Zohar talks about the palace. I am not really sure that I have this right, but at the bottom of the board of drawing #4, I say the palace is where God dwells. I think that is all of humanity. The world is where Christ dwells. We know from other passages that each human being is referred to as a world. We are all worlds. Each personality is a world. We are worlds in and of ourselves. We have a spiritual sun and a spiritual moon. We are one of many worlds, one of many cells that comprise the whole man called Adam. This is how it appears to me right now. The palace is all of humanity where God dwells. The world is the individual where the Son, Christ, dwells. Mankind, as a whole, is the household of God. Ezekiel 1:10 reads as for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man and the face of a lion on the right side and they four had the face of an ox on the left side. They four also had the face of an eagle. Now I am jumping back and forth. We are told in the Zohar that this palace has seven gates on each side, totaling forty nine gates. I am showing you on this board, here, a square. I have drawn the palace as a square and each side has seven gates.
We discussed with drawing #3 what those gates are. Of course, they are levels of mind, in case I did not make it clear. The five worlds that I showed you on drawing #3 are levels of mind. They are spiritual realms that the mind can ascend to. It is shown here as a square. Now you remember, going all the way back to when we first started teaching the Doctrine of Christ, that Adam, before the Fall, was expressed geometrically as a square. Do you remember that teaching? When Adam was seduced by the Serpent, one of his legs was broken off. The part of him that was God in him or like Christ in us, for example, was broken off and Adam became a triangle. Mortal man is a triangle. Man restored to God is a square. According to the Zohar, the palace is a square with seven gates on each side coming to a total of forty nine gates, but the fiftieth gate nobody knows where it is. Now remember this palace is a mind. We are talking about a mind. I want to suggest to you that it is the mind of man and that the fiftieth mysterious gate is the potential for the mind of Christ within the mind of man. I have drawn a square within a square and I have shown the glorified man, the spiritual mind within the mind of mortal man, is the fiftieth gate and it is the entrance into the eternal realm of God as witnessed by the scriptures on the board. Let me read them to you.
We have John 10 Verses 7 and 9 and Revelations 3:20. John 10: 7-9; Then said Jesus unto them again. Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. By me, if any man enter into the spiritual realms, he shall be saved and shall go in and out and find pasture. Jesus is the door to the spiritual realm. He said many came before Him, saying, I can show you immortality and I am the way to eternal life. But when the people who followed him entered into the door, they found that they entered into a spiritual realm that was not of God and they did not find pasture. What does it mean by they shall find pasture? You may recall what the Lord revealed here, that the whole creation, on all of the worlds, are starving, ever since Adam was separated from God. Not only in this physical world, but in the spiritual worlds, all of the inhabitants are searching continuously for food.
In this world, in this country, we have it very easy today. We just go to the supermarket. In order for us to buy food at the supermarket, somewhere there is somebody growing the wheat producing the bread, growing the fruits and vegetables, raising and slaughtering the cattle. The raising and preparation of food is a major source of concern for all human beings; acquiring food. We take it for granted in this country because things come so easily. But in other parts of the world, as I said earlier, their whole life is given over to raising and preparing and preserving food. It is the foundational need of humanity. We will die without food. On the spiritual planes, there are spiritual entities whose food is energy. They are disembodied beings and they need energy to survive. As we feed off of cattle, which is a spiritually lower element of being in this world, these entities that consist of energy, consume the energy of human beings. We are their food. The Scripture clearly says we are the Serpent's meat. They consume our energy and our flesh dries up and eventually dies. That is why we get old and die. Our energy is being drained.
So Jesus said, I am the door through which you will find pasture. You will find food. This came forth when I was still preaching the Doctrine of Christ. Well I still preach it, but this was when I was bringing forth the Doctrine of Christ. These days I preach only Kabbalah or Christ Centered Kabbalah. It was a big issue and I preached on it for several months, hitting home this concept of the search for food that is going on in all worlds simultaneously. The whole creation and all elements of it is consuming itself and each other, but we were not made this way. We were made to consume the energy of God, which is infinite. We only turned on each other when we were cut off from the source of supply, which is the infinite energy of Almighty God. Now we feed on ourselves and each other. We have become an evil creation of victims and predators. Praise the Lord.
Jesus said, I am the door. He is the fiftieth door or gate. It is the same thing. He is our potential, in the midst of our carnal mind, to escape from hell and death. He is the door to the place where food is no longer a problem. We come pretty close to that in this country, although God only knows, we have hungry people in this country. Getting food is really not a problem for most people in this country. We see that this nation and its provision is a physical outplaying of the spiritual promise of Jesus being amongst us, saying, I am the door. In this country we have partaken of His glory physically. The nation is great. The food supplies are great. We have such an abundance of wealth. We help other countries all of the time. Jesus also wants to give us His spiritual wealth, so that we no longer have to be fed from the outside, but that we will be sustained by His spiritual life on the inside. He is having a problem, though, because the fallen mind of man does not want to translate into Christ. We are married to the lower realms and our desire is towards our husband. I have begun to come out, but I will say we, as I identify myself with humanity.
We desire our husband. The husband that we are married to, which is a common law marriage, is a false marriage. Do you remember Patty Hearst? She became one with her captors. That is what has happened to humanity. Our true husband calls to us from afar and we no longer want Him. I have seen movies about young women, in the frontier, in the early days of this country, who were captured by Indians and raised among them. When her white relatives came looking for her, she did not want to return. She had become an Indian. She had joined herself to the Indian culture. She had married a man in the Indian culture and did not want to return to her roots. The culture that she was forced into was too ingrained in her. That is what has happened to fallen Adam. We do not want our true husband who calls to us. Even the Church, who has and is experiencing the Holy Spirit, they do not want Christ. They do not want their true husband. Most people that I have spoken to, they do not want to go into these deep intellectual studies. Christ is mind. He will marry us in mind. They prefer to go out and evangelize the world, which is not a bad thing, if that is what the Lord tells you to do, but spiritual maturation is in a union of mind with Christ Jesus. It is going inward, not outward.
Jesus is the door. He is the fiftieth gate. He is the square in the middle of the square. Nobody knows whether it is above or below. I am sort of surprised that the Zohar says nobody knows if it is above or below. Every time an answer seems simple to me, I know that it cannot possibly be simple. My carnal mind wants to say, well what do you mean by you do not know whether it is above or below? Surely, it is above. Surely the door is the Glorified Jesus Christ above, but there must be something that I do not understand, if this irradiate man who wrote the Zohar says, we do not know whether it is above or below. Since I do not have revelation on that, I am going to go past it, but I am going to tell you that the Glorified man, the Glorified Jesus Christ, He is the fiftieth gate. He is in the midst of the carnal mind of men, calling to them, saying to them, I am the door. He calls to us from afar saying, I am the door. I have the ability to penetrate into all men, if you will just hear me, and enter in, you shall be saved from this world of hell and death that you are joined to.
You shall be able to go in and out of this world of hell and death at will. Right now you cannot get out. You will find food. The Lord Jesus will provide your every need. He will take care of you when you serve Him with all of your heart and your mind and your strength. He will provide for you. You will not have to take a secular job, if in fact, you are working.
I work around the clock daily for the Lord, but I do not have to worry about where the finances to supply my needs to pay rent and buy my food will come from. The Lord will always provide my needs because my life is given over to Him. I have entered into whatever degree I have entered in. I am in the process of being saved from the corruption that is in this world. I have some ability to go in and out of the spiritual realm of God. I have not gotten my body out of here yet, but my mind definitely has a presence in the spiritual realm of God. I truly have found pasture for my soul, and I have found spiritual food. Praise the Lord.
Revelation 3:20; Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come into him and will sup with him and he with me. He will give His Spirit to our corrupt mind and we will receive the privilege of eating His wisdom, the honey of His wisdom. He will sup with us and that man will sup with the Lord. He will sit down and eat with us, but He will only eat of His own wisdom and glory, brethren. He will join with us, but He will not partake of our corruption and He will not be overwhelmed by the corruption of the one that He enters into. The person that He enters into will partake of His wisdom and His glory and will be reformed in His image. We see that the glorified man is in the midst of us. He is there. He is in this world calling. It is interesting that in the book of Proverbs, we hear about Wisdom. We hear Wisdom calls, but nobody responds. Why? Wisdom is calling on a level of vibration that is higher than the level of vibration that the carnal mind oscillates on. We do not hear Him, just like a dog will hear a high pitch whistle and man does not hear it. Most people do not hear the call of the Lord.
The Scripture is clear that when we enter in, when we call to Him, when we seek Him, He will come down to us in a form that we will be able to respond to. We have to initiate it. You know, the first time I read that, it really offended me. Who knows why it offended me? It might have offended me to think that man had power over God. That was how I heard it, that man had power over God. The truth is that we are so defensed by Leviathan and Satan, our captors that we have become one with, that unless we go looking for Him, He cannot penetrate us. His only other option, not to make God sound helpless, the only other option would be to wipe us out, and He does not want to wipe us out. He waits. He stands at the door and He waits for us to call to Him, and for us to say, come in and help me. Otherwise, He cannot penetrate our defenses. The reason He is helpless is because His only alternative would be to wipe us out, which He refuses to do. So He lets us have experiences unto destruction and He waits until we call to Him. He lives and He exists in a sin filled world looking on and seeing the corruption in this world and the horrors of this world, but He has chosen to not destroy us. He has chosen to redeem us. That process of redemption involves His waiting for us to wake up and find out that He is our only source of hope and help. The whole time that He is waiting for us, He is working in the background, devising a plan by which to impart His mind to the members of humanity, so that we will be more likely to invite Him in.
We have to initiate the relationship. If we do not initiate the relationship, if the Lord Jesus moves to initiate the relationship, His Spirit would destroy us. Maybe that is a better way to say it. If the Lord Jesus were to move in His authority and power to reach our human spirit and do what needs to be done to bring forth Christ in us, the process would kill us. So He waits and He teaches and He cries from afar. He raises up teachers and prophets wherever He can and He sends the people that are faithful to Him, that serve Him, into great danger where they are persecuted and rejected and hated. They sacrifice their lives for the love of God and the love of the people that He sends them to. At some point, hopefully very soon, because of the sacrifice of the saints, going all the way back to the beginning of time, we will respond like Abraham, being the first one. Ripping the veil off of our eyes is the process that will cause humanity to remember who we really are, and desire enough for us to return to the Father to initiate the process. Hopefully that plan will be implemented on a worldwide basis very soon. The plan actually began with Abraham, but we saw the final stage in the glorification of Jesus Christ.
That was the beginning of the final stage of God's plan to enable fallen mankind to desire Him. The end of the final stage of the plan is the offspring of the Glorified Jesus Christ, the plan that will bring forth the son of the Glorified Jesus Christ in all of humanity. In that son, the desire for the Father, will result in their salvation. There is no salvation for the one who does not desire the Father. If you are hearing this message, and you do not desire the Father with a fervency that is drawing you closer to Him or drawing Him down to you, then you always have the option of confessing your sin to the Lord that you do not have a fervent desire for Him. Ask Him to put that fervent desire in your heart because He stands at the door waiting for you. He stands at the door waiting for any form of communication that you will transmit to Him, but you have to initiate it. You have to ask for prayer. You have to ask for help. You have to go where He sends you. You have to draw down His power into your life.
Let us go on with this. We are on drawing #4. I did not explain the whole thing. Now I am applying this concept of the palace to Ezekiel's glorified man, which is really the mind of man. I have incorporated the two. Did I read that to you? I will read Ezekiel 1:10 to you again. As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man and the face of a lion on the right side. Now I thought that was interesting because the second part of that verse does not line up. Let me see. They had the face of a man and the face of a lion on the right side. So you would expect the verse to tell you what was on the left side, that the two remaining sides were on the left side, but it does not say that. It says, And they four had the face of an ox on the left side and they four also had the face of an eagle. It does not say that the eagle was on the left side. What does that mean? Do you remember early on in the teaching of the Doctrine of Christ we talked about Jesus being the right angle? Actually, it was not Jesus, but Christ in the man, being the right angle. A man was geometrically depicted as a right angle, when he had one side reaching up into heaven and then another side along the earth. We see that the man is on the right side. I am suggesting to you, that the masculine part or the part of the fallen mind that is really the man, who right now is overcome, is Abel, and he is also the human spirit. On the right side is the lion, which is Satan, and the darkness is the libido or the id of the mind of fallen man.
We see that the human spirit and the darkness or Satan are together forming a right angle in the fallen mind of mortal man. Since Satan is the side that goes up to the spiritual realm, we see that Abel is not attached to the spiritual realm of God, but he is attached. He entered into the wrong door. He entered into the one that came before the Lord Jesus and entered into a spiritual realm that is not of God. Abel, the human spirit, is joined to Satan, the darkness of the unconscious part of the fallen mind and that is exactly the revelation that has been coming forth here. For a long time I taught that it was Cain who was attached to the darkness, but the Lord showed us recently that it is not Cain, it is Abel. Abel is the life of the creation. Abel is the captured heiress, if we are talking about Patty Hearst, as an example. Abel is the captured heiress. He is the breath of life in the individual. So Satan has energy. Cain is the earth. Cain is the soul, the earthen man. Satan is spirit. Satan is energy, so spirit joins to spirit. Satan is joined to Abel and not to Cain. I thank the Lord for correcting me on that. They have formed a right triangle which has connected Abel to the spiritual realm of darkness rather than to the spiritual realm of light. This is the condition of mortal man. On the left side, we have the ox. Left is judgment. The soul or the personality, which is Cain, is on the left side.
Then we have the eagle, which is neither on the left or the right. The eagle is Christ, which is the middle column. We see that two sides of the square are spiritual and one side of the square is flesh. Then there is Christ, the eagle. So we see that this diagram in Ezekiel 1:10 is the mind of mortal man that has Christ added to it. Remember, Adam was geometrically expressed as a square and when he was separated from the Lord he became a triangle. So this mind is a square. It is the mind of mortal man, these three sides, the left side, the ox, Cain or the personality, and the right side, which is Abel, the human spirit, joined to Satan. That is the right triangle of the fallen man plus the personality. The three sided man, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, which is Satan, the subconscious part of the carnal mind which is the human spirit, Abel, and the conscious part of the carnal mind, Cain, which is the personality. We see that this mind has been restored to a square because Christ, the eagle, who is neither on the left or the right, has been added. He is above the left and the right. The man in the middle column has emerged in his mind. Is everybody following me? In addition to the emergence of the middle column, in the individual man, we have the presence of the Glorified Jesus Christ, who is seeking to join Himself to the eagle in the individual. That is salvation, brethren.
I keep forgetting this and the Lord had to remind me again. My carnal mind does not want to hold on to this. I thank God that the Lord just continues to remind me. It is possible to have the Glorified Jesus Christ joined to Christ in you. You may have received the line, like as if you are a drowning man in the water and someone throws out a line to you. You may have received the line and you may be in the process of being dragged in, but until you are separated from the darkness in your mind, you are not saved. There is a warfare from the time that the line is thrown to you, that Christ is formed in you, and that the Glorified Jesus Christ is joined to the Christ in you. Even at that stage of development, if you are still joined on the other side to Satan and Leviathan, you are not fully saved. You are in the midst of a long war over who is going to own you because now you, the personality, has two husbands. Your human spirit is joined both to Satan, who is on the right side here, and to Christ who is across from her, and Christ is being strengthened by the Glorified Jesus Christ, but your human spirit is still joined to Satan.
You have two husbands and you are in spiritual adultery, and you will never enter into the kingdom of heaven. You have got to be divorced from Satan and there is a process that divorces you from Satan. We are talking about mind here. It is warfare. It is a process that develops the ability within you to recognize the thoughts of Satan in your mind, and to reject them, and rebuke them, and to destroy them. If you continuously, over a long period of time, reject and overcome the thoughts of Satan, she will lose her power because she only can feed off of you when you agree with her thoughts. When you refuse to agree with her thoughts, she starts to starve to death. I am not exactly sure of the process, but at some point she shrinks up completely. I am going to say that she falls away, but she does not leave you. The terminology of the parable is that she becomes the cart that carries the Christ man. Her function is the visible structural man that exists only for the mind of Christ to manifest itself through. Right now, this cart, the human body and the soul, the personality that is the structure, which is created to reveal the mind of Christ, is functioning with its own mind. It is competing with the Lord Jesus, competing with the mind of Christ, in you, as to who will shine through the personality.
We are looking again at the top of drawing #4. We see the human spirit, the man, who is formed in a right angle, with Satan on the right side, but also the human spirit has a new husband, the Christ, the eagle who is across from her. This eagle and this lion are fighting to live their life through, to express their life through this man, Abel, which is the part of the mind of every human being. That is the war. The ox on the left side here, the personality, determines which husband the human spirit is going to marry. Look at this because I did not really present it properly. Let me try again. The human spirit is joined on the right to Satan and on the left to the personality, Cain, which is the ox. Christ is here, the eagle down at the bottom. When this personality on the left starts to resist the lion or Satan across from it, and starts to agree with the Christ, the eagle down here will weaken Satan's hold on the human spirit.
So it is the personality that has to start to reject the thoughts of Satan. The personality that is the conscious mind, has to start to reject Satan's thoughts as the unconscious part of the mind and start to embrace the thoughts of Christ, the new unconscious mind. As Paul said, we are going to be renewed in the spirit of our mind. Our carnal mind is not being thrown away, it is being renewed. The foundation of the mind of man is the human spirit, Abel. The renewal is in the form of the rejection of Satan as the unconscious part of the mind, and the embracing of Christ as the unconscious part of your mind. That renewal, that transference from Satan to Christ, as the unconscious part of your mind, renews both the human spirit, Abel, and the personality, Cain the ox.
Are there any questions about this? I want to go over the scripture with you on this. I am looking at the interlinear text and I have not really refined it as much as I would like to, but I do have somewhat of an alternate translation of this verse, Ezekiel 1:10. And their personalities resemble the personality of Adam and the personality of Satan. I better put this on the board for you. Let us take a picture of this and I am going to write this up for you and show you how I did it.
This is drawing #5, the alternate translation of Ezekiel 1:10. And their personalities resembled the personality of Adam, but formed a right triangle with Satan. And the personality of the four sided animal nature of fallen Adam judged the personality of Christ, the eagle, the fourth leg of the square, which is the geometric expression of righteous Adam. Let me try it again. And the personalities resembled the personality of Adam (that is righteous Adam) but formed a right triangle with Satan (a translation of the lion) and the personality of the four sided animal nature of the ox (which is fallen Adam) judged (that is a translation of the left side) the personality of Christ, the eagle, who is the fourth leg of the square, which is the geometric expression of righteous Adam or of restored Adam. And their personalities resembled the personality of Adam, but formed a right triangle with Satan and the personality of the four sided animal nature (I should say of Cain) judged the personality of Christ, the fourth leg of the square, which is the geometric expression of righteous Adam.
First of all, I changed this alternate translation a little bit. Ezekiel 1:10 Alternate Translation now reads; And the personalities resemble the personality of righteous Adam, but formed a right triangle with Satan. And the personality of Cain of the left side of the four sided animal nature judged the personality of Christ, the fourth leg of the squared mind, which is the geometric expression of righteous Adam.
