Praise the Lord, everybody. In part 3 of this message, the Lord showed us a spiritual understanding of the palace that is mentioned in the Sanzino Zohar concerning the passage that we are dealing with. I am not going to read the whole passage right now. The Lord showed us the palace and the mysterious gate, which is the Lord Jesus Christ. This is the palace that has fifty gates to it, forty-nine surrounding it, and one we are told, nobody knows whether it is above or below. Jesus told us that it is above. As the Lord showed us, and gave us revelation on this palace, the Lord directed me to Ezekiel’s four faced man, and showed us that Ezekiel’s four faced man is the same as the palace. We find the Lord giving us the same message from several different directions. I see the same message in the King James, that I see in the Zohar, that I see in the Alternate Translation. I see the Doctrine of Christ in the Zohar. I see the Zohar in the King James Translation. It is all the same message, brethren. It is all the same message, just like there are four gospels. It is all the same message, but each gospel has just a little bit of information that is different from the other one. The Lord keeps turning out His message in all different forms. It is all the same, but one point may have a little more information than the other, and we, are blessed enough to be given His message from the Doctrine of Christ, from the King James Translation, and from the Zohar.
We are getting it from three perspectives, and it is just the most exciting ride. We are on a magic carpet ride. (Laughter) There was a time that I would not want to say that because I would say, well, Christians do not believe in magic. Magic is just the exercise of supernatural power, and we are called to exercise supernatural power to do what? I had to answer somebody’s question today. They asked me supernatural power to do what? Well, to heal physical bodies, but that is just practice, brethren. We are called to use supernatural power to tear down the veil in the minds of the people that prevent them from hearing the message of God and turning to Christ, which is the door through which we escape from hell and death.
The whole church and the whole world is in spiritual Egypt right now. It is Passover time. It is spiritual Passover time. First, we have to have the blood applied to our door. That means Christ has to be grafted to you. So if Christ has been grafted to you, at this point, you are eligible for the exodus that is already in progress. We have to go through the door. We are exiting out of our carnal mind and this carnal lifestyle into a spiritual desert. You know, the Scripture says John the Baptist was in the desert, and he came out of the desert to baptize Jesus. For years I thought he was in a physical desert. I do not believe John the Baptist was in a physical desert. I understand he was a member of a group called the Essenes who were very spiritual. They spent a great deal of time meditating. That is the desert, the spiritual place that you go to, when you depart from this world, in your mind. It is in your mind. I have entered through that door and I have ascended into the spiritual desert. I come out of that desert from time to time to minister to people, and come down to their level to minister to them. Very few people could come up where I am, but it is time to enter into the promised land. You stay in the desert for a while, and then you are supposed to enter into the promised land. I am waiting for that day.
In the meantime, we are sorely and greatly blessed with the revelation that the Lord has poured out here. At the end of part 3 we translated Ezekiel, Chapter 1Verse 10. Let me tell you this. I did not hear it on the message when I reviewed the message. The four faced man described in Ezekiel 1:10, I suggest to you, is a spiritual diagram of the fallen mind of mortal man, of fallen Adam. The account in Ezekiel Chapter 10:14 of that four faced man describes the Glorified Jesus Christ and His relation to the body of Christ. We will translate that. The third verse that we will translate is in the book of Revelation, Chapter 4:7. That, I suggest to you, describes in more detail than Ezekiel 10:14 the second generation of Christ. Ezekiel 10:14 speaks about the second generation of Christ in relationship to the Glorified Jesus, but the sequence really is the fallen mind of man of Ezekiel 1:10. The Glorified Jesus Christ, Ezekiel 10:14 and it shows you His body, but Ezekiel 10:14 is really about Jesus, and the second generation of Christ. That is us. Revelation 4 Verses 7 thru Revelation 5 Verse 1. There are several verses in the book of Revelation describing the second generation of Christ. That is us. Well, that is Christ in us. The Lord just corrected me. That is the offspring of the Glorified Jesus Christ, Christ in you and Christ in me, the hope of glory. When we give up our carnal mind, and agree with His Christ mind, then it becomes us. It is not enough that Christ is in you. You have to be in agreement with Him. Amen!
We are at the drawing board now. I know we have this as an exhibit of Part 3, but I decided to repeat it. The Alternate Translation of Ezekiel 1:10; And their personalities resembled the personality of righteous Adam, but was forming a right triangle with Satan, and the personality of Cain, 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. Is that awesome? You see, brethren, every translation is subjective. No matter how brilliant the translator is, he can only translate in accordance with his level of spiritual understanding. This is the message the Lord has given us here and here it is in Ezekiel 1:10. Now we are talking about fallen Adam, the personalities of fallen mankind. Yet personalities resemble the personality of righteous Adam. How do we resemble the personality of righteous Adam? Well, we resemble him, we are male and female. Right? I do not know any other way, and we are reproducing. We are guarding the garden. That was a part of the previous parts of this message. We are guarding the garden. We are guarding Abel, our spiritual potential, from being fertilized by Christ. We are supposed to be guarding Abel against Leviathan, but we are married to Leviathan, so we are guarding him against Christ.
We have got it backwards, but we resemble righteous Adam. We have got it backwards and we are forming a right triangle with Satan. What does that mean? It means that we are spiritual. The right triangle signifies that one leg of the triangle goes up to heaven, and the other leg goes along the earth. A right triangle man is a spiritual man, a flesh man who is spiritual. He is someone who is in heaven and earth at the same time, but the aspect of the spirituality of fallen mankind is not the Lord Jesus Christ. It is Satan. It is not Jehovah. It is Satan. We saw all these people that look like righteous Adam. We are the king of the earth. There is no species that is greater than we are. We dominate all the animals. We look similar to righteous Adam, but our spirituality comes from Satan. Their personalities resemble the personality of righteous Adam, but was forming a right triangle with Satan. The spirituality of fallen man comes from Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind. The personality of Cain, the left side of the four sided animal nature, judged the personality of Christ. Well, does not that sound like fallen mankind? Does not the pharisaical mind, which is the carnal mind, judge the man that is carrying Christ? Does he not judge him guilty, and judge him wrong, because the carnal mind can never recognize Christ. Only Christ in a man can recognize Christ.
Looking at the board here, we are seeing a description of fallen man. He looks like righteous Adam, but his spirituality comes from Satan. The personality of Cain, the left side of the four sided animal nature, is judging the personality of Christ, the fourth leg of the squared mind, which is the geometric expression of righteous Adam. So we are talking about a man who has Christ formed in him. The triangle has once again been restored to a square. You may recall that the geometric expression of Adam before the fall was a square. When he fell, he lost one of his legs, the part of him that was attached to Jehovah, or should I say the aspect of Jehovah that was in Adam, was removed. So his geometrical expression changed from a square to a triangle, but we see that Christ has been added to this man, this fallen Adam, so fallen Adam is a square once again. Despite the fact that he is a square, he still just looks like Adam, but his spirituality is still coming from Satan. Brethren, this is a diagram of the Church today. He looks like the restored Adam, but his spirituality comes from Satan. Why does he look like righteous Adam? Well, he has a relationship with the Holy Spirit. He honors God to the best of his ability, talks about God a lot, but his spirituality comes from Satan. Yes, he has the Holy Spirit. Yes, he speaks in tongues. Yes, he casts out demons. Yes, he heals the sick. Then he goes home and prays, frequently, out of his carnal mind, which is the spirit of Satan. Then when he seeks doctrine, the spirit that gives him doctrine is Satan.
The Holy Spirit does not give doctrine, brethren. The Holy Spirit does not give doctrine. So if somebody thinks that they have a spirit of revelation in the Holy Spirit, and they are coming forth with doctrine, they are getting false doctrine because it is a false Holy Spirit that is giving them doctrine. The true Holy Spirit does not give you doctrine. The Holy Spirit does not give you revelation. So the Church looks right, looks good, looks holy, but their spirituality is coming from Satan. Aside from the preschool spirituality, which is speaking in tongues, believing and casting out demons, and healing the sick; that is all preschool. There are people in the Church, today, that are traveling in the spirit. It is rarely the Lord. There is an imputed gift, you know. They are doing it by Satan. They are doing it by the spirit of Satan. They are divining in the Church. They are praying psychic prayers. Their envy is overtaking them. Their sins are running rampant. From the unconscious part of their minds, they are practicing witchcraft. Their spiritual activities are of Satan, and the personality of Cain, the left side of the four sided animal, is ruling over the whole man rather than Abel.
These are people with Christ added to them, brethren. I cannot see anything in this scripture whether Christ is grafted to them or not, but He may be. I do not know. These are people who have been redeemed, who have been restored to the geometric expression of a square, and their spirituality is still Satan. They are living out of their carnal spirituality, and their personality is Cain. Through that personality they are judging and giving a hard time to the Christians who are manifesting the Christ or manifesting Abel in his regenerated condition. That is our condition today.
Ezekiel 1:10 in the King James Translation 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 a ox on the left side. They four also had the face of an eagle. It does not sound anything like our translation, brethren. But I will take our translation any day. The translation that I just read is a sealed translation. Nobody knows what it means. It is possible that even the Kabbalists do not have this revelation, unless there are one or two somewhere secreted away. Whenever I say nobody, there is always an exception, somewhere, if there is an exception. Nobody knows what the King James Translation means. At least, ours means something.
Ezekiel 10:14 King James Translation. And everyone had four faces. The first face was the face of a cherub and the second face was the face of a man and the third the face of a lion and the fourth the face of an eagle. Maybe we should put these two diagrams on the board face to face. In drawing #2 I have done a comparison between the four faced man in Ezekiel 1:10 and the four faced man in Ezekiel 10:14. We see that three sides are the same in both of the men. Both of the men are depicted as a square, a four sided creature, and three of the sides are the same. Man, which is Abel, the human spirit; the lion which is Satan or the darkness; and the eagle, which is Christ. The only thing that has changed from Ezekiel 1:10 was the ox, which signifies the animal personality called Cain. In place of the animal personality, we now see a cherub. I declare to you that a cherub is the Christ personality. What we are talking about here is the old man and the new man.
The man described in Ezekiel 1:10, I suggest to you, is fallen Adam or the mortal old man. Christ is added. I say Christ is added because we are looking at a four sided creature, but it is not yet seen in the personality. Christ is added, but is not yet seen in the personality. Christ is added, but is not yet appearing in the personality. It takes a warfare against the lion, which is Satan or the darkness, in order for Christ to appear in the personality. The lion, also known as Satan, is not in agreement, at all, that Christ should appear in the personality. We see the old man appears in Ephesians 4:22; Put off concerning the former conversation of the old man, which is corrupt, according to the deceitful lusts. We are told in another place that we are corrupted by the lusts of this world. Lust is corrupting. Lust keeps us concentrating and focusing on ourselves, on our bodies, on our appetites, on our needs, ourselves, ourselves, narcissism, narcissism. We are supposed to be looking towards God. We are stuck down here in hell because we cannot get our head away from the image of ourselves that is appearing in the water. I am referring to the story of Narcissism, in case you are not familiar with that.
On the right side of the board, we see Ezekiel 10:14. Again, I am telling you that the animal personality, the ox, has now become a cherub, the new man. I am quoting Colossians 3:10; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him. So the old man is in a corrupt image according to the deceitful lusts of this world, and the new man is in the image of him that created him. Praise the Lord. I will read you the King James first and then the Alternate Translation of Ezekiel 10:14. King James: And everyone had four faces. The first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle. This translation gave me a run for my money. It took me quite a while to work on it. The Hebrew word translated face can also be translated personality. This is what the Alternate Translation is of Ezekiel 10:14. The squared personality who is the head of the personalities have the personality of a cherub, and each personality of Adam or of the regenerated Adam, had a double portion, and the lion, which is the third part of the personality, was united with the personality of the eagle.
That is so interesting to me because I have been preaching for a long time that the third part of the personality is the darkness. I will probably be preaching more about that as another part of a previous message called A Wondrous Edifice. Also, in another portion of the Zohar, when talking about the primordial elements, they talk about the darkness. I had that revelation when I first started this ministry, when I did not have a clue as to all of this stuff, so it was a spirit of revelation talking about the human spirit, the human soul, and the darkness. It is the darkness in the personality, the unconscious part of the carnal mind. So once again, the squared personality, who is the head of the personalities; I guess I can amplify that and make it the head of the body of Christ. The squared personality, who is the head of the body of Christ, has the personality of a cherub, and each personality of the regenerated Adam has a double portion, and the lion, which is the third part of the personality, was united with the personality of the eagle. Brethren, I declare to you, when the lion is united with the personality of the eagle, the eagle is prevailing and dominating over the lion, which of course, is Satan’s end. She will be ruled over by Christ. So we see a great mystery solved. If you have wondered who the cherubs are, the cherubs are Christ.
I was just going to make a comment, and a rhetorical question, and the Lord answered my question. The Zohar depicts the cherubs as having really infantile bodies with wings. For the longest time, I saw pictures of cherubs that Michael Angelo painted in the churches in Italy, depicting infants with wings. I always wondered where that came from. Now I see that the Zohar teaches that the image of the cherub is that of an infant with wings or a very young child with wings. I do not know if they say they are physical. It puzzled me for years. I was just going to put it on this message as a question for the Lord, whenever He would answer me, why would the Zohar depict a cherub, the Christ personality, as an infant with wings? The answer that came to me instantly, before the question was even completely out of my mouth, is that the cherubs depict the young Christ that is coming forth in the body of Christ.
The reason the cherubs have wings is because Christ, at His youngest, still has the ability to fly in the spirit. He is Christ, no matter how young he is. He has the spiritual ability to fly in the heavenlies. Of course, we are told that we sit in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. We are ascended with Him. We are at His right hand. So we have an infantile body of Christ, at this time, yet they have wings. Because of their Father, the Lord Jesus Christ, they are ascended in the heavenlies. Now we see the mystery of why an angel called a cherub would be depicted as a human infant with wings. That is so interesting. That must have been a true revelation that some prophet received when he was mediating, that the cherubs appear as infants with wings. I am sure that the prophet or whoever got that revelation, had no understanding, whatsoever, of why a cherub or any kind of an angel would be depicted as an infantile human. I just love when the Lord does this. It is called an unfolding revelation. You just go from logical point to logical point, and everything just falls into place. So we now have a definition of a cherub. How interesting. I am going to look at this Alternate Translation again. I will let you know whether or not I will amplify it when we get back.
Drawing #3. I have on the left side an incomplete reproduction of the man that I drew on drawing #2 of Ezekiel 10:14. I did not put all the information in. Please refer to drawing #2 to see all the information for Ezekiel 10:14 and the man that is depicted by that scripture. What I do have on the board is the sentence that says, this illustration depicts the Lord Jesus and His undifferentiated body. I told you when I commented on Ezekiel 10:14, and when I read you the alternate translation, that this verse is primarily about the Lord Jesus, but it mentions His body because Jesus is not complete without His body. To have a complete depiction of the Lord Jesus, we would have to know that He has a body or He has offspring, a second generation. But it is still just one man in Ezekiel 10:14. He is not differentiated.
In Revelation 4:7 we see that there are four beasts. I did everything I could do, searching through the interlinear text in the Greek, thinking that it might be a wrong translation. I researched it and I see that the Greek clearly says, and both the Textus Receptus and Nestle agree, that the Scripture is saying four separate individual beasts. This is what I believe the Lord is telling me, that the second generation of Christ is, in fact, differentiated. We are one body of Christ with four different types of believers. The four different types of believers are what the Scriptures are talking about. Revelation Chapter 4:7 reads; And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast was like a calf, and the third beast had the face of a man and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. Even verse 8 talks about each of them. So this is what the Lord gave me. He said these are the four different types of believers in the not yet perfected body of Christ. The lion represents believers who are spiritual in Satan, and that is people with inherited spirituality. The calf signifies the carnal believers in the body of Christ. They have the animal nature. They are still bound by lust. Carnality means lust.
The man, is the Greek word which I use to depict the completed Adam, who is mature and has wisdom because Christ is added to him. The fourth kind is the flying eagle, which is spiritual in Christ. We see that there are two stages here of maturation in Christ. When Christ is first added to you, you are directed to doctrine. We studied doctrine here for a long time before we began to become spiritual. That is the regenerated Adam. He receives the wisdom when Christ is grafted to him. As he presses on and presses through, eventually, he becomes a flying eagle, someone who is spiritual in Christ, in addition to the wisdom. We see here a depiction of the not yet perfected collective body of Christ. It is similar to Paul saying, there are different functions of the body. One man is a nose and the other man is a mouth and the other man is a thumb. That is the principle here. It is the collective body of Christ and the four different types. Very interesting.
I have not really prepared an alternate translation of Chapter 4 of the book of Revelation. I would like to just go through those scriptures with you. I do not have a comment on everything there, but I do have some insight into some of the symbols. I would like to do that. Then I do have a short passage from the Zohar concerning cherubs, which I would like to go over with you. However long that takes, that is going to be the end of it for tonight. Lord willing, at the next meeting, I will do a commentary on the passage in the Zohar that generated this whole study.
Drawing #4. The board again is divided into two parts. We are dealing with Revelation 4:1 on this board. On the left side, I have a reproduction of the illustration of the four sided man from Ezekiel 10:14. I show you the fiftieth gate, which is also the door, which is the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the door. I believe I gave those scriptures on other parts of this message. Jesus is the door. He clearly says, I am the door. This is the way you get into the spiritual realm. Everyone that has come before me was a liar and a thief. I am the only way to enter into the true spiritual realm. Any other way that you get into the spiritual planes, you are going into a counterfeit spiritual plane. You are going through the back door. It is not the true spiritual planes of God where we can rest. On the right side of the board, I have tried to show you the four worlds, the World of Atzilut now. I have read in my Kabbalistic writings that the throne that we read about is in the World of Beriyah.
This is one of those instances where the Lord has not confirmed it to me, but I feel comfortable with that revelation, that the throne that the Scripture talks about is in the World of Beriyah. As I have told you many times, when I read something in the Kabbalistic writings, if it agrees with my spirit, I go for it, believing that the Lord will correct me if I am wrong. If it disagrees with my spirit, I do not go with it, but I am certainly open to the Lord to correct me. I have no problem believing that the throne is in the World of Beriyah, which is the World of Creation. I have no reason to believe otherwise, and the Lord has not said anything to me for the several years that I have accepted this.
I am showing you the World of Beriyah. We have the Keter, the Chokhmah, and the Binah. I am showing you the door as Tiferet. Now we are talking about heaven. In Chapter 4 of Revelation Verse 1 it says a door opened in heaven. Heaven is Ze’ir Anpin. So Gevurah through Yesod is Ze’ir Anpin. I am suggesting to you that the door that opened in heaven is Tiferet. Tiferet is the middle column that opened in heaven. That is Ze’ir Anpin of the World of Beriyah. I do not know what that means. Maybe that is where Christ, in us, is. I know He is in the heart center, but I never really thought about placing Him in any world.
Actually there are five worlds. We do not deal with the World of Adam Kadmon too much. I never really thought about where Christ would be concerning the four worlds. I am just going to go for it, and I am going to say that Christ, in our heart center, is in the World of Beriyah. Let the Lord correct me if I am wrong. That is the ariel plane, if that is the ariel center, where the Lord Jesus Christ meets us. We have been talking about that for quite a few years, that the heart center is the ariel center, where, if Christ can make it into the heart center, He becomes eligible to connect with the Glorified Jesus Christ. Here we see a door opening in heaven in Ze’ir Anpin of the World of Beriyah. At least, for now, let us just say that. You know how it works here. If this is wrong, there is an excellent chance the Lord will correct it as I preach. So let us just say, that the door that is opening in heaven is opening in the Christ in us, who is in the heart center, which we now say, or believe, would be in the World of Beriyah. That is where the throne is. Let us see what happens from there on in. As I told you, I do not have all the symbology of this chapter. I have not worked it up at all, but the Lord has given me some interesting revelation as I just looked it over. This is not a complete revelation of the chapter, but I have some interesting things to tell you.
Chapter 4, book of Revelation, Verse 1; After this I looked and behold a door was opened in heaven and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking to me, which said, come up hither and I will show thee things which must be hereafter. Now I guess most people have assumed that it was the Lord Jesus Christ talking. I never really thought about it, but I want to suggest to you that it is the internalized Christ. It is the grafted Christ that is talking to the individual. At this point, not the Glorified Jesus Christ, but the Christ in you, that is saying, come on up to my mind. Come on up to my house. Get out of your carnal mind and come up to my house. Come up to the household of God. Come into the mind of Christ, and I will show you things to come. That is a spirit of prediction, brethren. Prophesy is merely anything that God says, but the things to come is a spirit of prediction. So we are being told here that when Christ is grafted to you and He ascends to the heart center, you will receive a spirit of prediction, and find out what is coming in the future, in your future, anyway. God shares His plans with you.
You see, with all of the chaos going on today with the hurricanes, and all of the devastation that is going on, the Lord has never told me anything along those lines, at all, but He has told me the secrets of His kingdom. He has told me His secret plan of salvation. He has told me how to access that plan, so that I could become eligible for that great, great, salvation that He has provided for us. I have to believe that He is going to take care of me, no matter what happens, because when a devastation like Hurricane Katrina comes, the Zohar phrases it like this. When the angel of death flies, there is no special provision. That is what the Zohar says, although, I have heard of people escaping. Even if you escape, you have to experience the stress of being in the hurricane. Even if your house is the only house that is not touched, you cannot go untouched. You are not going to be totally insulated from it when a general destruction is decreed for a particular area. My point is that the Lord has never told me about any kind of physical destruction that was coming to pass on the earth or in this country. He has just told me His wonderful story.
So I have to believe Jesus when He said, when all these things come to pass, when all this destruction is happening, look up because you are in the process of ascending. Your redemption draweth nigh. You are ascending as all of this is happening. I want to tell you, brethren, that as Christ ascends in at least one, if not more human beings, as He pierces through into this World of Action, the result in this world is all of these catastrophes. As Christ in us is ascending, He is an energy source. The best example I can give you is if you have a glass of water and you pour water into a full glass, the water that is in there will spill over. That is what is happening. Christ, in us, is an energy force, and He is ascending into the higher planes, and He is displacing energy that exists in those higher planes. He is displacing negative energy that exists in those higher planes, as He pierces through. Everything that happens in the spirit world has a reaction in the physical world. So the water is spilling over. We are having flooding. The water is spilling over. We are having earthquakes. That is Abel coming up from under the ground. It is all happening in the spiritual realm. That is why Jesus said, do not be afraid, but look up because your redemption draws nigh. All of this destruction in the physical world means Christ is piercing through in the spiritual planes. Hallelujah.
Revelation 4:2; Immediately I was in the spirit and behold a throne was set in heaven and one sat on the throne. I showed the door in drawing #4, but I did not show the throne. One sat on the throne and he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone and there was a rainbow around about the throne in sight like unto an emerald. I do not really know what all these colors mean other than that they are different various degrees of energy. I know that the rainbow means judgment. We found that out several years ago in one of our studies. So this is Ze’ir Anpin sitting on the throne. He is Christ in you, your hope of glorification, sitting on the throne. He is there with a rainbow. He has come to judge your carnal mind. This is the establishment of the White Throne Judgment in you. Your carnal mind must be judged, found guilty and destroyed, so that Christ can take over your whole person, and bring you to a condition of righteousness, which state of being will heal every disease in your body, and save you from death.
Revelation 4:4; Round about the throne were four and twenty seats, and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting clothed in white raiment and they had on their heads crowns of gold. Now this is interesting, four and twenty seats. The Lord has told me, and a lot of teachers have said, that this number twenty four represents two representatives from each tribe. I have heard that preached, but I have never heard what the Lord told me, tonight, that these twenty-four elders are two spies from each tribe that was sent into the promised land. These are the two spies that were sent into the promised land, two spies from each tribe, that was sent into the promised land. What does that mean? It means that there were two leaders from each tribe that went into the spiritual promised land. Right now the tribes are spiritual. What is the promised land? What did the spies see when they went in, that ten of them came out and said they could not make it because the giants were too strong.
Brethren, these men were taken into the unconscious part of their mind. They were taken into the inner realms, and they saw Satan and Leviathan, and all the entities in the astral plane that were in the spiritual realms, and they were terrified, and said, we can never overcome these higher realms or the entities therein. We have had several teachings on that over the years in the Living Epistles’ library. If you want to go to the Living Epistles site and search, you will be directed to several messages where we see that the person goes inward with their mind, and looks at the powers and principalities. The person looks at their carnal mind, scrutinizes their carnal mind, and finds and locates Satan and Leviathan and their operation in one’s own mind, and begins to war against them, so that Christ can displace them. That is who these twenty-four elders are. The term, sitting, usually in the Hebrew, anyway, signifies a marriage. It signifies a marriage, a union, a union between the chair and the person sitting on it.
We see twenty-four elders, two elders from each tribe, are around the throne. They are being judged because the throne means judgment. It is the judgment of your carnal mind. Round about the throne were four and twenty seats. This is talking about the twenty-four elders that have overcome their carnal mind. And upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders. They had acquired seats at the right hand of Christ. Round about the throne were four and twenty seats. Upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders. They were sitting and judging with Christ, because they had overcome their carnal minds. They were clothed in white raiment. Their clothing, their personalities, had been purified, and made clean. They were now signified as white. Their personalities were white, and free from sin, and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
That means that they had ascended into Keter. Jesus said, that we would be with Him in heavenly places. Jesus has ascended to the Keter. I am not sure whether Jesus is in the World of Atzilut or the World of Adam Kadmon. I have not got that straight in my mind yet. I think we had a couple of messages where we had some information on that, but at the moment I am not sure. His name, Jesus, is above every other name. He is in the highest place. He is probably in the Keter of Adam Kadmon, but I am not sure. These twenty-four elders, these two representatives from each tribe, that had dared to go into the depths of their unconscious mind, and wipe out Satan and Leviathan, now are purified. They have purified personalities. They were purified in the unconscious part of their mind and they had on their heads crowns of gold. They had ascended to the highest place, to the Keter of the highest world. Well, maybe not. Maybe they ascended to the Keter of the World of Beriyah. I am not sure. I think the Lord just corrected me. They ascended to the Keter of the World of Beriyah.
Revelation 4:5; And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne which are the seven spirits of God. Now this is what the Lord told me. The lightnings and thunderings and voices, I think that means judgment. There were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. Let me put this on the board and then I will tell you more.
Drawing #5. We still have the World of Beriyah. I have changed Tiferet into a throne as best as I could. I show Christ sitting on the throne. Now this is very interesting because the four beasts around the throne are now appearing as the sefirot. Gevurah is the lion; Yesod is the calf. I think I read in some Kabbalistic writings that Yesod is the calf and I never knew why they were saying that. Now Netzach and Hod, the Kabbalists say are one. They are a dual sefirot and are considered one and it is those two sefirot that prophesy comes from. I have made them the flying eagle because they are flying in the heavenlies. Prophesy is not necessarily prediction, but prophesy is a very high place. You have to be in a high place to have prophesy from God. So Netzach and Hod are the left and right wings of the flying eagle and the man is the Yesod. All of these are surrounding the throne. They are surrounding Tiferet, underneath in the World of Yetsirah and the World of Formation, also known as the astral plane. We see that the seven sefirot of Ze’ir Anpin, on the astral plane, which would be an evil Ze’ir Anpin, have been purified. Fire signifies energy. Fire also signifies Binah. It can mean that Binah has come down. Binah, who is ultimately destined to join herself to Malkhut, has come down, has descended, and has purified that astral plane.
After that come the seven breaths. We are told the seven breaths are the seven spirits of the astral plane. They could typify the multiple entities, and all the different species of spiritual entities that dwell on those plains which, today, are evil towards mankind. But they will not always be evil. The only reason that they are evil is that they are separated from God. They have no food and they are lacking. People become mean and evil when their needs are not met. So the entities on the astral plane will become benevolent when Christ, in the individual, absorbs them and meets their need. That is what has happened here.
Verse 5 says, out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices (judgment) and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne. Those are the seven sefirot of the astral plane, which are the seven Spirits of God. Those are the breaths, the energy, that abides in the sefirot.
Verse 6 says, And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal. I have that written on the board as the crystallized waters of the astral plane, which represent the stabilization of the emotions of the chaotic animal nature. That is tohu, the chaotic animal nature. In the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes, before and behind. I already told you about the four beasts. The eyes before and behind is just talking about spiritual sight. They see with their natural eyes and they see with their spiritual eyes. They see everything. Spiritual people, in Christ, see everything. You cannot fool them because they know what is going on in your heart. They know what is going on in what they can see, and they know what is going on in the unconscious part of your mind. That is what the word, behind, signifies. They see in the spirit. They have eyes that see in the spirit, and also see in this natural plane.
Verse 7 says, The first beast was like a lion, and the second beast was like a calf, and the third beast had the face of a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle (prophesy). Verse 8 says, And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him. The number six signifies Ze’ir Anpin. So each of those beasts, each of those sefirot; Chesed, Gevurah, Yesod, Netzach, Hod (Netzach and Hod are one) and Tiferet. It is the Ze’ir Anpin of each of those sefirot. Remember each sefirot has subjective sefirot. They say the four beasts, each had six wings. I am doing this on the fly, and this is what I have right now. There are sub-sefirot for each of those sefirot. Ze’ir Anpin, as a sub-partzuf of each of those beasts, and they were full of eyes within. We see that we are talking about spiritual sight on a deep level, on at least two levels. They rest not day and night, saying, Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. This fact that they rest not, day or night, means that they are not human. These are spiritual aspects or spiritual entities, because humans have to sleep. It is only the God of Israel that never slumbers or sleeps. So we are talking about spiritual beings. We are talking about aspects of Christ. Well, Christ is in the middle, and He is surrounded by these sefirot, and they really are all one.
Verse 9 says, And when those beasts give glory and honor and thanks to Him that sat on the throne, who liveth forever and ever (that is the immortal Christ) the four and twenty elders fall down before Him (before Christ) that sat on the throne and worship Him that liveth forever and ever and cast their crowns before the throne. So the four and twenty elders, the twenty-four spies, two from each tribe (of course this is a symbolic number) that succeeded in penetrating into the unconscious parts of their minds and overcoming and defeating Satan and Leviathan, fell down before Christ. They submitted themselves, humbled themselves before Christ, the One who sat on the throne, and they worshiped Him, who was immortal, the One who liveth forever and ever, and they cast their crowns before the throne. Now this is interesting, but the Kabbalists talk about Keter being the crown. They also talk about crowns as being evil entities in the astral plane. I want to suggest to you that that is what has happened here. It is the same Greek word when I looked it up.
In verse 4 we see the twenty-four elders had crowns of gold on their heads. But in verse 10 they are casting down their crowns. I want to suggest to you that they are not casting down their crowns of gold, but they are casting down all the crowns, all the powers and principalities of their carnal mind, that was causing them to sin, separating them from God. They cast down, not their crowns, but the crowns, the powers and principalities within them. They offered up all of their carnal mind to the Christ and said, it is yours, Lord.
Verse 11 says, Thou art worthy, Oh Lord, to receive glory and honor and power, for thou hast created all things and for thy pleasure they are and were created. We see in Chapter 4 the entire creation. I believe that this is talking about individual people. It is going to happen, eventually, to the whole creation, but it is happening a man at a time. This is the experience that we are going to have when Christ sits on the throne of our heart. This is what is going to happen. We are going to wear crowns of gold. We are going to ascend to a high place in Christ. We are going to have the power to cast down all the crowns, all the powers and principalities, that cause us to sin and corrupt us through lust. All of this is going to happen because we are going to acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord and that Christ, in us, the Christ in our heart, is His son. Our carnal mind, the carnal mind, the personalities, the twenty-four personalities, the two from each of the twelve tribes of Israel that entered into the unconscious part of their carnal mind, saw the truth of their nature. As soon as they saw that they were truly sinners, they submitted themselves to the Lord Jesus Christ and His son in their own heart center.
Because of that, because they worshiped the Lord Jesus Christ, they found the power to cast down the powers and principalities that they had located and recognized when they went into the depths of their unconscious mind. They overcame by the blood of their testimony, by the blood of the testimony that was attached to them in the form of Christ. They overcame by Christ and by confessing their sins. I do not know the rest of that scripture. It is eluding me at the moment. They overcame by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony. So they overcame by the blood of the lamb, which was the Christ mind that was grafted to them, and the word of their testimony was that they went into their unconscious mind. They saw the giants there, that were a part of their own mind, and they overcame, and they conquered. That is the word of their testimony. That is exciting. Everybody is passing out on me here, and it is very late. I think we will have one more part to this message in which I will go over that little passage on the cherubim, that I took out of the Zohar. Then I will also comment, briefly, and go through the actual passage of the Zohar, which talks about the impress of a key. We will finish this out, Lord willing, on Thursday night with a Part 5. Any questions or comments? Goodnight and God bless you.
