Yesterday we looked at the idea that darkness could actually be the word “not” (ou) in the old and new testament. We discussed that the light always has power over the darkness just as physical
Is God using death and “not” for his eternal good purposes? Rom 11:32
light makes the darkness flee when the switch is flipped. Natural is a reflection of the spiritual.
We saw some of the aspects of the “not” in 1 Cor 13 or the famous “love chapter”. Most see the love verses, but sometimes miss the “not” verses. Anytime we are told something is “not” or to “not” do something, we are being fed death via the law. I believe that we all know in our hearts what is right and wrong.
Paul called ministry of “not” (the old testament) the “ministry of death” in 2 Cor 3:7
But if the ministry of death, in letters engraved on stones, came with glory, so that the sons of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of the glory of his face, fading as it was 2 Cor 3:7
Want to see something very revealing? I pray the Lord opens our eyes and hearts to see this.Continue reading
Is darkness also a form of light?
Mike Tyson isn’t normally known for his quotes, but one stuck with me. He said in a documentary about him “The darkness is the light”. There may be some real truth to this since John 1:9 specifically says there exists a “true” light. Can one then conclude there may also be other forms of light?
Could even darkness itself be a form of light?
For example, what is darkness for man is not for a cat and other animals that can see in the “dark”.
Let’s explore darkness and the powers that rule it and ask some questions while delving in scripture, shall we?
One of the things I have noticed over the years is how perfect scripture is laid out.
Could the verse numbers have a hidden meaning?
Additionally, the verses are all numbered. Do you think their may be a reason for this?
Have you ever thought about this?
Try this experiment sometime. Go through the new testament and look at all 3:3 verses and then all 6:6 verses.
Do you notice how the 3:3 verses pertain to an individual (tri-part human) and the 6:6 verses pertain to the corporate whole or single, corporate spiritual man?
Pretty amazing, huh?
I have also found that 7 relates to purification.
Have fun with this and consider giving thanks for his perfect Word.
What will heaven be like?
One of the biggest questions a person will have to answer after attending church for a while, is:
“Is everyone included in God’s plan of salvation?”
Most of the established church folks will say “yes, but they need to personally accept it via faith”. How can we do that when it says that it is the faith of Jesus Christ that saves us and not our own. Check out Romans 3:26.
in the tolerance of-the God toward in-showing of-the justice of-him in the now season into the to-be him just and one-justifying the-one out of-belief of-Jesus Romans 3:26
The belief that justifies us (forgives our sinful nature) is (OUT) of Jesus. It’s HIS faith and not ours.
That faith is a gift that does not come out of you. See Ephesians 2:8
to-the for grace ye-are ones-having-BEEN-saved THRU the belief and this NOT OUT of-you, of-God the oblation (gift) Ephesians 2:8
It doesn’t matter what your religious beliefs are, you are included. As long as you have a dying, natural human body (of Adam). See 1 Cor 15:22, on of my all-time favorite verses.
as-even for in the Adam all are-from-dying thus and in the anointed (Christ) all shall-be-being-made-alive 1 Cor 15:22
All that are dying shall be made eternally alive. Trust it.
Make it a great day.
One of my most favorite verses is Genesis 1:1 because I believe it includes all other verses within it. Most people read the English translated (by man) version that says something like “in the beginning God created…”
Is that what scripture actually says? Here are the original words in the original order.
Now, seriously, ask yourself who does the creating (spiritual birthing)? “He “does, doesn’t he? Is this the father? I believe it is.
Who is birthed?
Is it not Elohim? Is this the Son being “begotten” or spiritually born?
Check out Psalms 2
I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou [art] my Son; this day have I begotten thee Psalms 2:7
This is reiterated in Hebrews 1:5.
For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? Heb 1:5
Please notice it is occurring on THIS day and is ongoing. The entire old creation is being reborn into the new. That’s something to celebrate today!
Ever wonder what single verse is the “universe”?
Check out Genesis 1:1. It’s an ongoing (never-ending) “in the begin inning”.
Is Genesis 1:1 the “uni-verse”? (single standalone verse)
We are and will be constantly be getting a new heavens (location of spirit and soul) and Earth (location of body). Please notice the “colon” at the end of the verse. What is the purpose of a colon?
Doesn’t it separate what comes before from all that comes after?
Would that make Genesis 1:1 the “uni-(single) verse?
Have you ever been told that once a person “believes in Jesus” that the Holy Spirit will come and live inside that person?
Doesn’t this cause us to also believe that our own actions are causing God to do something?
Is that the way God works? Or is it the other way around?
What does scripture say? Do we cause the Holy Spirit to act or does God?
Let’s look at Acts 10:45 in the original words and see.Continue reading
Is the translated Bible a “book of magic”?
The following verse has fascinated me since I first read it.
The original words say:
Enough YET of-the-ones THE about-acts practicing together-carry THE SCROLLS they-down-burned in-view of-all and they-together-pebble the values of-them and they-found of-silver MYRIADS(10,000) FIVE Acts 19:19 Westminster-Leningrad Codex
The King James version says:Continue reading
Do you ever wonder what it would look like if we could peek under the veil of the spirit? Why is their a veil anyway?
Are we his “woman” with our “face” (mind) covered?
The words of Jesus are coming to mind.
At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants Matt 11:25
What in the world is Jesus talking about?
Who are the “wise and intelligent”? Are they the “crafty”?
Also, who are the “infants”? Surely, a baby can’t understand ways of God, can it?
Please allow me to point a little to what I am seeing in this powerful “undercover” work.Continue reading
What exactly is “his blood”?
The last few days have been in intense scripture study and things about the “blood of him” and “soul of him” and “the flesh” have arisen. Let’s take a look.
Is the “soul of all flesh” really the “blood of him”? Leviticus 17:14
Could this also be “his soul” that he “laid down” “for the life of the world” and “on our heads” (Matt 27:25)?
Could this be related to “the woman” of Genesis 3?
Let’s consider these things together, shall we?
Blood of him
Blessings to you today.
