Correlation of Ramification
Lecture given by Dr. Kinley in 1959 at 1347 North Cahuega Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028.
In earlier lessons we have studied the Divine Vision and Revelation, we have seen the Creation of Heaven and Earth, we have analyzed and charted the verifications of the Pattern in the Godhead, in Nature and Science, in Man --made in the image of God -- throughout the Bible and recorded History. Now let us consider the relatedness of all the Biblical happenings which by their correlationship and extensions backward and forward from any point in the events of Biblical History, give final proof and substance to the Divine Authenticity of that which is written in the Holy Scriptures. Since God used the meeting with Moses atop Mt. Sinai as the basis for first revealing his physical Creation -- the three-fold Pattern of the Universe.
Let us examine the correlationships and ramifications from that point, backward and forward, to show the consistency, the planned Pattern that God had prepared for mankind. Accompanying this lesson is an illustration entitled the Correlationship of Biblical Events. It is suggested that you keep this illustration before you as you read on during this lesson, so that the correlationships discussed can be clearly seen and understood.
As you know, God appeared to Moses and instructed him to return to Egypt to deliver his people, the Israelites, out of bondage. Moses returned to Egypt in accordance with God's Divine Instructions and after the pouring out of the Ten Plagues, the Plan for the Exodus occurred which is commonly known as the Passover. Thus, our beginning is in Egypt, in the Stygian night of the Passover when God by the phenomenal cloud, and the hand of Moses, led the twelve tribes of Israel out of the plague torn, chaotic land of Egypt, through the miraculously divided waters of the Red Sea and into the wilderness of Sinai, in the year 1491 B.C.
Shortly after Moses had led the children of Israel into the Wilderness, God spoke from Mt. Sinai and gave them the "Law". Afterward, God called Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu and Seventy of the elders of Israel up into Mt. Sinai, where they saw in a vision -- the God of Israel. Thereafter, Moses remained in the mount, while the others returned to camp. It was at this time that God MANIFESTED Himself to Moses and those who accompanied Moses, in the Incorporeal Form of a Man or a GREAT ANTHROPOMORPHIC BEING.
For purposes that we will subsequently discuss in greater detail, let us establish that God wanted Moses and the others to Know that he was the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; or in other words, their God, the God of Israel. Also that He, God, was to MANIFEST HIMSELF in the FLESH in the form of a Man -- to fulfill the law and prophecies at a later time. Additionally, that after God had manifested himself in the FLESH, as the Messiah, fulfilling that which was written in the law and by the prophets foretelling of His Death, Burial, Resurrection and Ascension, that He would reappear to John on the Isle of Patmos in a vision, confirming that He, the God of Israel, was the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and End, the Almighty God, the Creator of the Universe!
The transmutable counterpart of Spirit, or the Three-fold Godhead, was spontaneously transformed into the apparent ethereal Darkness and Chaotic physical SUBSTANCE which Moses SAW and recognized to be the Heaven and Earth in his Vision of the Creation. This Heaven and Earth which Moses SAW in the Vision within the midst of the cloud, was in the same Chaotic condition as the land of Egypt, after the pouring out of the Ten Plagues and before the Israelites departed from Egypt.
In this comparative type, we are using the Red Sea for a boundary line between Egypt and the Wilderness of Sinai; or in other words, we are using the Mystic Darkness and waters of the Red Sea to completely surround the Plague strickened Chaotic land of Egypt. From within this ethereal darkness and Chaotic Mass, Moses heard God speak the words, "Let there be Light, and there Was Light." After the dawn of Cosmic Light and from within this great Chaotic Mass Moses SAW God, the Heavenly Anthropomorphic Being, or Three-fold Archetypal Pattern, systematically Create the Heaven and Earth, with it's vegetable and animal kingdoms -- as Moses had known them before, and as we know them now.
In this vision, God, in speaking and dealing with this parent mass, during the six solar days of Moses' vision, thoroughly demonstrated that He Is Universal Spirit Law and order within Himself. After Moses had witnessed the Creation of Heaven and Earth during the first six solar days and God had rested on the Seventh Day, God called unto Moses out of the Cloud and gave him the First Tables of Stone with the Law of Commandments engraved thereon by the finger of God. God instructed Moses to place the Tables of Stone with the commandments written thereon, inside the Ark of the Covenant in the Most Holy Place, in the Physical Tabernacle. Moses, upon descending from the Mount observed the Children of Israel disobeying the Commandments of God by worshipping a man-made idol, the Golden Calf. Moses became so angry that he threw the tables of stone upon the ground and broke them. After God and Moses had chastened the Children of Israel for worshipping the Golden Calf, God called Moses back up into the Mount and gave him the Second Tables of Stone which were likewise to be placed inside of the Ark of the Covenant.
In Correlating all significant events and happenings in Biblical History, we now come to one of the most significant correlationships. When God gave to Moses a second or new set of tables of stone, it was indicated that there would be a new covenant following at a later time. The New Covenant would be written in the Heart and Mind. (See Jeremiah 31:31-34). If we subtract the Seven Days, including the Sabbath, from the Forty Days and Nights which Moses remained in the Mount with God, we have a balance of thirty-three days during which Moses remained in the Mount after he saw the Vision of the Creation. Counting, as we are told in the book of Numbers 14:34 and Ezekiel 4:6, one day for a year, we have a balance of Thirty-three Years - which is equivalent to the word of, of God manifested in the flesh; or in other words, the total Life Span of Jesus the Christ or Messiah on the earth plane, fulfilling the Law and the Prophecies.
According to the Book of Genesis, written by Moses after seeing the Creation of the Heaven and Earth, Moses witnessed the Creation in logical sequence - from the first day through the sixth and then to the Seventh or the Sabbath Day when God rested. At a latter time the Apostle John was to state that he was on the Isle of Patmos, surrounded by water, on the Lord's Day or the Seventh Day when God Rested from His Creation. Moses having seen God, the Alpha and the beginning of Creation and John having his Vision of the same God, or the Omega, or ending, is the reason that it is said that Moses looked from Alpha to Omega while John looked from Omega to Alpha -- thereby verifying and confirming the fulfillment of all things which were written in the Law and the Prophecies and accomplished by the Messiah, or Jesus Christ, to manifest His entire Purpose and Plan throughout the Dispensations and Ages - or from the beginning to the End, or from the First to the Last.
Now let us correlate the First Three Days and Nights of Moses' vision of the Creation of the Heaven and Earth, to the First Three Days and Nights journey of the Israelites Under and Guided by the Phenomenal Cloud, when they made their Exodus from the Plague Stricken, Chaotic land of Egypt, to the Red Sea. The burning cloud under which the children of Israel moved can be likened to the forming of the light in the Heaven or elimination of the carboniferous darkness by cosmic light -- which was the Evening and Morning of the First Day. In the book of Genesis, on the Second Day, the Waters Above were Divided from the Waters Beneath. That is, the hydrogen and oxygen, in the region of the Atmosphere, which formed the waters on the face of the Earth or Red Sea, were divided and a solid space or firmament prevented further mixture of Hydrogen and Oxygen from creating the formation of water on the face of the earth from the atmospherical Heavens. In the same manner, the Red Sea was Divided and there was no further water during the Israelites journey.
On the Evening and the Morning of the Third Day, God Divided the waters off the face of the earth and let the dry land appear, forming rivers and seas -- and the vegetation grew up through the surface of the earth. This is comparable to God dividing the waters of the Red Sea and forming a passage, with a wall of water on either side and a high East wind drying the passage and instead of the Seed of vegetation appearing, the Seed of Abraham, or the Israelites, passed through the Red Sea, being immersed or Baptized in the Cloud in the Sea on dry land and Coming out on the other side of the Red Sea into the Wilderness of Sinai -- which was the Evening and the Morning of the Third day. By further correlation, this is also comparable to the Seed of Abraham, or the Messiah, being buried in Joseph's new tomb and darkness appearing over the Earth from the Sixth to the Ninth hour - and His Resurrection on the Third day in the Third Year of His Ministry - and the Three days journey and Baptism of the Israelites in the Cloud and in the Red Sea - which corresponds to The Third Day of the Creation.
In other words, the same repetition by the Archetypal Pattern, the Migratory Pattern and the Three-fold Tangible Pattern - which is also called the Tabernacle of God in the Wilderness of Sinai - all verify and confirm each other. In order to thoroughly understand every detailed phase and operation of God's Purpose, we must study the complete journey of the Children of Israel from Egypt through the divided waters of the Red Sea; through the wanderings in the wilderness of Sinai; through the Building and Consecration of the Tabernacle; and, after the death of Moses, the entry through the divided waters of the River Jordan under the leadership of Joshua, and the 450 years of occupation of Canaan's land, to the building and dedication of Solomon's Temple in the 490th year after the departure of the Children of Israel from Egypt. This 490 year span completes the first typical cycle of events under the dispensation of the law. In this manner, God foretold and foreshadowed coming events throughout the ages.
One of the Prophets, Daniel, was told in a vision these words: "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy Holy City, to finish the transgression and to make an end of sin and to make reconciliation for Iniquity and to bring in everlasting righteousness and to seal up the vision and Prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy. Know therefore and understand that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah, the Prince shall be Seven weeks and Three score and Two weeks, the street shall be built again and the wall, even in troublous times." By correct interpretation of the Seventy weeks, we derive the period of 490 years. It was 490 years from this vision of Daniel's until the coming in the flesh of Jesus Christ and His crucifixion.
In a subsequent lesson, on the subject of Jesus Christ, we will discuss Christ as Spirit Materialized and indicate the Prophecy of His coming, the identification of Jesus of Nazareth as the Christ and the conclusive proof and verification that Jesus Christ WAS the Son of God, sent into the flesh. We will take up more fully correlationships and ramifications of the types and shadows of the entire Archetypal Pattern of the Universe.
In the meantime, when you have some time to think about such things, see if you cannot determine some of the correlationships that are indicated on the accompanying illustration. How many correlationships of three days can you find, going from darkness or from the Outer Court Around About of the Intangible Sanctuary or Three-fold Pattern of the Universe into the First Vail -- or is it the Red Sea? How many sequences can you find going from Egypt up to Canaan's land, or the allegorical Temple of Mt. Moriah -- and the way that John would have to see his vision if the Creation of the Universe was as it was - or by what relationship would the transfiguration and ascension of Jesus Christ be comparable to the people who accompanied Moses to the Mount atop Mt. Sinai?
If you will study the illustration and notice that coming from the center of the illustration and going up and then to the left, or to the vision of Moses and going right to the vision of John, you form a cross, also symbolical of the law and the prophecies and the promise of Spiritual Enlightenment and Peace and Reconciliation. It is truly wonderful when you learn to know and understand the consistent, unerring infallibility of God and His Pattern.
As your ability to weigh and analyze and measure events in History, as well as the Bible, increases - you will come to recognize TRUTH as it EXISTS and will be able to determine for yourself the accuracy and inaccuracy of all Religious Doctrine and Philosophy.
