"God -- The Archetype (Original) Pattern of the Universe"
By Henry Clifford Kinley, D.D., Ph.D.
Founder and Dean of the Institute of Divine Metaphysical Research, Inc.
When Paul, who was called to be an Apostle of Jesus Christ by the Will of God, received his Divine Revelation while on his way to Damascus to persecute the Christians, he wrote of his experience thusly: "And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor. 12:3-4). Paul was completely floored by the stupendous nature of the Divine Revelation which he received and found it difficult to relate to others either by word of mouth or by writing just what he saw, and was caused to understand. Of Paul's writings, the Apostle Peter states in his own epistles that many of the things that Paul wrote were hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction (2 Pet. 3:16).
So it is that when I received my Divine Revelation in 1931, I immediately recognized the difficult task that confronted me as pertaining to the conveying of my thoughts to others. Many times, I have attempted to put this colossal and revolutionary divine concept on paper, and it is only now that I have finally succeeded in expressing myself in writing. I must admit and acknowledge, however, that I have been tremendously aided in the writing of this work by a limited number of condescending individuals, whose efforts I feel I must acknowledge and to whom I am deeply grateful.
Dr. Carl F. Gross, my constant companion in this work for the past 28 years has assisted me tremendously in the compilation of data and in theological research as well, and also by his often expressed constructive criticism of my explanations, which at times had become too profound. He is responsible for some of the simplicity of expressions made in this discourse, and many of the pictures. His efforts were tireless and unceasing and I doff my hat to him for a job well done.
Dr. Robert Harris, M.D., a graduate of Meharry Medical College in 1944, with internship at Harlem Hospital, New York; and residency in New York Cancer Institute, and eleven years of private practice in Cincinnati, Ohio, became intrigued and attracted to this work in 1957. He has added a tremendous punch to the barrage of knock-out blows that this work deals to the devil, by his correlations of the physical anatomy and physiology to things of the Spirit. His work is an entirely new concept against which there can be no arguments. In Dr. Harris' own testimony he states that he has learned far more of the functions of the physical anatomy of man, in relationship to God than he or any other Medical Doctor could have learned through the regular procedure of schooling since becoming a member of the Institute. He further states that through the teachings of the Institute, things have been revealed to him about the physical body that man has wondered about and searched for since the foundation of the world. Consequently, his contribution is a witness to the truth of this revolutionary and True Gospel of Christ and will open the eyes of the Medical profession. I sincerely appreciate and acknowledge Dr. Harris' work and assistance.
Another of my colleagues, Mary Gross, has performed a yeoman's job of typing, retyping, assembling, and aiding in the getting of this discourse to the stage of publishing. I often felt sorry for her because of the long, tedious hours that she labored to complete a certain portion of this work, only to find that because of an omission of some sort, she had to do it all over again, and again. With rare patience, she somehow perserved, however, and stuck right with the job to it's completion. She is certainly deserving of all the thanks that I can give her.
Others who assisted in getting this work to the stage of completion are Fred Allen Jr., who aided with the drawings and performed a thousand and one other tasks; Marion E. Harris, who assisted with the typing re-arranging and composition, and my fellow co-workers in the Faith who for the want of a better name call themselves members of the Institute of Divine Metaphysics, all of whom have lent me great moral support.
This acknowledgement would not be complete without mentioning Shirley Smith and Josephine Bailey, who have helped in the aiding and painting of the many pictures on our charts, and also in the many phases of the writing, they have put forth a tireless effort and have my deepest gratitude.
I sincerely appreciate the efforts of everyone who helped in any way in expounding and assembling this material and getting this great Truth written, so that it might help others to see God in His True Light, and in His True Reality.
This book, entitled "God the Archetype (original) Pattern of The Universe," is written and composed of the volumes entitled, "God The Archetype Pattern Of The Universe", "The Mystery Of God, The Mystery Of Iniquity, and The Mark Of The Beast", "The Mission Of John The Baptist and Jesus, The Messiah", and "Whose Builder and Maker Is God." It is the first and probably the last manuscript that I will write in my life time, as pertaining to God and to His Ultimate Purpose, which has functioned down through the past and the present Dispensations and Ages.
The sum total of these written volumes, expresses my true understanding of the Holy Bible in reference to Jesus Christ, the true "SON OF GOD", and Satan, or the Anti-Christ, the true "SON OF PERDITION". Yet, this understanding is not of my own, for in the year 1931, I, Henry C. Kinley, was caused to behold a great Panoramic Vision, and on the same day I also in turn received the Divine Revelation of Spiritual meaning of the Vision. It is this Panoramic Vision and Revelation of the Divine Pattern of the Universe, given to me by the Lord God, which I have expounded upon, through charts and writings to my associates which in turn has qualified them to detect, identify, and to prove the existence of God, the Mystery of Iniquity, and the Mark of the Beast.
This great and powerfully psychological experience revealed God to me for the first time in my life; revealed Him as He really exists as the ONE and ONLY UNIVERSAL SPIRIT and ARCHETYPAL PATTERN OF THE UNIVERSE. In presenting and explaining this stupendous "Vision and Revelation" to you, the reader, I presume that YOU are honest, sincere, and earnest in your extensive and intensified search for the TRUE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE. I further assume, that you, like millions of other human beings in every walk of life throughout the World, truly want to KNOW GOD as He really "IS", or as He actually "EXISTS". Our only purpose in writing this book is to try to help YOU find and know GOD for YOUR OWN PERSONAL SATISFACTION and CONSOLATION.
Although, my purpose, as expressed above, is to help every person who reads this book to LEARN OF THE TRUTH and FIND and KNOW GOD, I cannot definitely guarantee that in every case I will succeed in my effort. The ONLY possibility of this becoming a truly accomplished realization in your life as it is in mine and a comparatively few others, lies solely within your own ability and power to accept attested TRUTH and SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN FACTS. I shall present pure, unadulterated TRUTH and FACTS to you as they really are for your careful INVESTIGATION and CONSIDERATION.
It is quite apparent that you probably will note many statements herein which you shall feel are entirely out of harmony with the general theological conceptions, displaying the semblance of cold-blooded or sacreligious attitudes. This is not true. Did it ever occur to you that we remain ignorant of attested TRUTH and SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN FACTS, most particularly because we fail to make a PERSONAL, detailed INVESTIGATION of important matters? This failure to investigate positively retards the progress of our understanding and knowledge in every vocation and phase of life, both physical and spiritual. Sometimes stopping and thinking for a moment over the essential things of life eliminates many regretted years of poverty, sickness, humiliation, embarrassment and sometimes, death and destruction. Therefore, we should learn to pause and TRY TO THINK INTELLIGENTLY before we finally conclude affirmatively or negatively. We should do this before an ultimatum or final decision is rendered on any secular subject. The majority of us are, to some extent, guilty of this negligence.
In the foregoing paragraphs it was not my intention to impart the idea that I, in my "human intellect," have become infinite in wisdom and infallible in judgement, or that I have already attained that state of absolute perfection in every technical detail. However, I am only trying to attract your attention and to elevate your mind so that I can impart to you the TRUE UNDERSTANDING of the VISION which I received by Divine Revelation. In view of this, the pictorial illustrations and explanations of the VISION herein set forth are not to be regarded as that of my own concept or speculation. I firmly believe that the Almighty God-given, spiritual KNOWLEDGE and UNDERSTANDING of this great Panoramic Vision and Divine Revelation was originally intended for YOU as much as it was for ME. Therefore, to the very best of my ability I am attempting to pass it on to you exactly as I received it.
You should be cautioned that I refuse to make diplomatic apologies for stating the TRUTH and FACTS as God has revealed them to me and as I honestly believe they will permanently remain. Neither do I practice using diplomacy in presenting the TRUTH and FACTS as they were revealed to me, and as I understand them to be. My method is to hue to the line and "let the chips fall where they may." In other words, it is my task and duty to carefully place the TRUTH and FACTS squarely before the reader and it is up to them to make the final DECISIONS. The reader is also requested to bear in mind that this book is difficult to elucidate, which therefore, requires that every instruction be closely regarded in detail.
The REVELATION of the ARCHETYPAL PATTERN OF THE UNIVERSE embraces the EXISTENCE OF GOD, HIS "UNIVERSAL SPIRIT LAW" and "ETERNAL PURPOSE" through the "DISPENSATIONS and AGES." Comparatively speaking, this is a new divine, philosophical, psychological, scientific, spiritual, scriptural and revolutionary "interpretation" of the Holy Bible. It is supported by a definite DIVINE PATTERN or PLAN, descriptively stipulated in the Holy Bible itself (see Ex. 25:4O). This interpretation is discreetly confirmed in every detailed manner by the UNIVERSAL CREATION of God, both VISIBLE and INVISIBLE (see Rom. 1:19-20). Moreover, I firmly BELIEVE, that this Vision and REVELATION is to be regarded as one of the greatest and most astounding of PANORAMIC VISIONS and REVELATIONS ever given to mankind since the CREATION of the material or stellar counter-parts of the UNIVERSE.
To the very best of our artistic ability, we have drawn pictorial illustrative charts of the Great Panoramic Vision, showing the "Divine Pattern" and Spirit Law, embodied therein, and tried hard to explain it's true meaning to philosophers, scientists and religious teachers. No man, Roman Catholic, Protestant, or Teachers of Philosophy and other scientific and cosmic phases of nature, who have heard and understood the explanation of the "Pattern" and the Universal Spirit Law and it's operation by the illustrative charts, has ever been able to refute the accuracy and infallibility of it's "Teachings."
A profound Knowledge of this Divine Panoramic Vision, operating through the Dispensations and Ages, by the Universal Spirit Law, abolishes all superstitions, ignorance, and carnal ordinances, traditions, atheism, agnosticism, skepticism and investigates the unexplained so-called Law of nature (which in reality is Universal Spirit Law), the powers latent in man, and teaches man to have implicit faith in God and worship Him in "Spirit and in Truth" (see John 4:24), as God had originally intended according to His Eternal Purpose (see Eph. 1:9-12).
It may seem to you that this is the long way around, but in reality it is the short way, when you STOP and consider that God, in His New Covenant, has promised to put His Law in Our Heart and Write it in our Mind and cause us to "Know Him" and walk in His Way—that is, deliver us from the Ignorance of Sin and Preserve us for Immortal Glorification (see Jer. 31:31-34). "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls: For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" (Matt. 11:28-29, 30). It is of this Revelation that you shall now read in the succeeding pages. Volume 1, God-The Archetype (original) Pattern of the Universe.
Basic Psychological Preparation
If you are to draw from this course some of the "TRUTH" herein contained, then it is absolutely necessary and essential that YOU get away from everyone. BE ALONE and QUIET. The great fundamental principles of "TRUTH" are almost invariably "REVEALED" after we have withdrawn to some quiet and secluded place where we are not disturbed. Having done this, try to DISMISS everything else from your mind and give me your undivided ATTENTION. This will enable you to concentrate on these explanations, study more studiously, think deeply, and better UNDERSTAND the VITAL ISSUES and CARDINAL VIRTUES scripturally and scientifically discussed herein. REMEMBER -- YOU ARE TRYING TO FIND and KNOW GOD AS HE ACTUALLY "EXISTS" or AS HE REALLY IS -- for YOUR OWN CONSOLATION and SATISFACTION.
Basic Philosophical and Scientific Preparation
This DIVINE REVELATION illustrated and explained herein called the great "PANORAMIC VISION", embraces the existence of an Eternal God, His Universal "SPIRIT LAW" and "PURPOSE" through the Dispensations and Ages. Comparatively speaking, this is a REVOLUTIONARY TEACHING which embraces the fields of PSYCHOLOGY, PHILOSOPHY, SCIENCE and RELIGION, to mention only a few, and is Spiritually transforming the mind and illuminating the understanding of mankind in regards to his religious concept of God. It teaches mankind his true, inseparable relationship with God and the Universe of which he is a part thereof. Do not be deceived. This teaching is definitely supported by a DIVINE PATTERN or PLAN, descriptively stipulated in the Holy Bible and discreetly confirmed by the Lord God, Himself, His Universal Creation, the Law and the Prophets, Jesus Christ and the Apostles and, in part, by modern science.
Our aim here is to lead YOU, step by step, to an indisputable, profound KNOWLEDGE of God and a permanent, conscientious realization of His EVER PRESENCE abiding within YOU, and an UNDERSTANDING of His MANIFESTATIONS throughout the Universe in which we live, move and have our being. We MUST REALIZE the direct course of procedure by which God chose to make Himself KNOWN to mankind, which is as follows:
(1) We must REALIZE that "GOD IS A SPIRIT" (John 4:24), hence, "He is Invisible" (Col. 1:15).
(2) We MUST ALSO REALIZE "THE INVISIBLE THINGS OF HIM FROM THE CREATION OF THE WORLD ARE CLEARLY SEEN, BEING UNDERSTOOD BY THE THINGS THAT ARE MADE. EVEN HIS ETERNAL POWER, AND GODHEAD. SO THAT THEY ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE" (Rom. 1:20).
(3) We MUST ALSO REALIZE that "ALL SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN BY THE INSPIRATION OF GOD, and IS PROFITABLE FOR DOCTRINE, FOR REPROOF, FOR CORRECTION, FOR INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS: THAT THE MAN OF GOD MAY BE PERFECT, THROUGHLY FURNISHED UNTO ALL GOOD WORKS" (2 Tim. 3: 16-17).
It cannot be reiterated too strongly how vitally important it is for you, the reader, and me, the writer, to realize and know that "ALL SCRIPTURE" is given by the inspiration of God (2 Tim. 3:16). It is also important that we thoroughly understand the meaning of the "Inspiration of God" or, all scripture was written by the power of God to manifest Himself, the Creation and His Purpose through VISIONS and REVELATIONS. Moses and the Prophets told what they saw and heard God say in their visions by means of writing; these writings are called "THE SCRIPTURES" (John 5:39). these visions reveal God in the REALM OF ETERNITY and manifest His activities in the past, present and future. They disclose the entire purpose of God from Alpha to Omega.
Also bear in mind and remember that we must KNOW the difference between one Age and the other, the difference between one Dispensation and the other. The following definitions of an Age and Dispensation were taken from a Webster's dictionary.
AGE—A particular period or time of history, as distinguished from another; A historial epoch...
DISPENSATION—(a) The divine ordering of the affairs of the world. (b) An appointment or arrangement as by God. (c) A divinely appointed order or system; ...
An example - The Ages are in the following order.
(1) THE CREATIVE
(2) THE ANTE-DILUVIAN
(3) THE POST-DILUVIAN
(4) THE PRESENT-CHURCH
(5) THE KINGDOM A G E S
(6) THE PERFECT T O
(7) THE SABBATHNICAL C O M E
The SABBATH is "THE DAY OF GOD," the Seventh Day or "THE DAY" before the eighth (8th) or the beginning of another series of Ages. It is necessary to mention here that God is ETERNAL. It is also necessary that you do as the Apostle Paul advised Timothy: "Study (the Scriptures) to shew himself approved of God, rightly dividing (the Dispensations and Ages or) the word of TRUTH, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed" (2 Tim. 2:15). Learn to correctly divide the Dispensations.
An example - The Dispensations are in the following order:
(1) THE EDENIC
(2) THE NOAHIC
(3) THE MELCHIZEDEC - ABRAHAMIC
(4) THE MOSAIC - LAW
(5) THE CHURCH - GRACE - KINGDOM
(6) IMMORTALITY - KINGDOM
(7) THE SABBATHNICAL - KINGDOM
A Chronological Error of 4 Years
Now we can see that from 4004 B.J. to 196I A.D. we have a total chronological period of time 5965 A.M. (or the year of the world) to calculate all Prophetic intervals or Periods and the fulfillment of all events to date, including the 4 years error of Chronological calculation made by Dionysius Exquus, in the sixth century A.D. That is to say, he made the mistake of 4 years, which means that Jesus was 4 years old before the date of A.D. 1 actually began. See Bible Dictionary F.N. and M.A. Peloubet.
B.J. stands for, before the birth of Jesus, not before the birth of Christ, because He (Christ) was in the Bosom of the Father in the Beginning-John 1:1.18).
CORRECT CALCULATION EXCLUDING THE 4 YEARS ERROR
(See Chart on Dispensations and Ages)
4000 B.J. = Years before the birth of Jesus
1965 A.D. = Years from birth of Jesus to present time
5965 A.M. = Or years of world, or to present time
THE 4 YEARS ERROR:
4004 B.J. = As calculated by Dionysius Exquus
1961 A.D. = Should be 1965 A.D.
5965 A.M. = Or years of world, or to present time
A Chronological Error of 33 Years
There is also another chronological error in the calculation of time in the closing of the Post-Diluvian Age and the opening of the Present Age. For example, the Post-Diluvian Age reaches from the Flood to Pentecost or A.D. 33 1/2 or 34, instead of from the Flood to the birth of Jesus. See Chronological chart.
"FOR ALL THE PROPHETS AND THE LAW prophesied until John" (Matt. 11:13). "Think not that I am come to destroy the LAW, or the PROPHETS: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you TILL HEAVEN and EARTH PASS, ONE JOT OR ONE TITTLE SHALL IN NO WISE PASS FROM THE LAW TILL ALL BE FILLFILLED" (Matt. 5:17,18).
CORRECT TIME IN OPENING AND CLOSING OF AGE:
(See Chart on Dispensations and Ages)
4033 B.J. = Years from Eden to Pentecost
1932 A.D. = Years from Pentacost to Present Time
5965 A.M. = Total years from Eden to Present Time
THE 33 YEARS ERROR:
4000 = Years to birth of Jesus
1965 = Years from birth of Jesus
5965 = Total years
1965 = Years from birth of Jesus to Present Time
- 33 = Years of total life span of Jesus
1932 Years = correct time from Pentecost to Present Time - 1961.
The Correct Calculation of Time Consisting of the Ante-Diluvian Age, Post-Diluvian Age and Present Age
1656 = Years from Eden to Flood
2377 = Years from the Flood to Pentecost
1932 = Years from Pentecost to Present Time
5965 = Total years from Eden to Present Time
How to Calculate Prophetic Time
"TO THE LAW AND TO THE TESTIMONY: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is NO LIGHT IN THEM" (Isa. 8:20).
ONE DAY FOR A YEAR
TO THE LAW: Numbers 14:34
"After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise."
TO THE PROPHETS: Ezekiel 4:6
"And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year."
40 days = 40 years
7 days = 7 years or
7x7 = 49 years or
70x7 = 490 years (Dan. 9:24)
Zeros are added and subtracted in many instances.
How to Calculate Time with the Lord--Not Man
ONE DAY AS A THOUSAND YEARS
TO THE LAW:
As shown in the illustration, page 19, the six solar days, which the Phenominal Cloud stood over Mount Sinai, with Moses in the Midst of the Cloud, witnessing the creation by means of a Vision. This would make the six days of creation as six thousand years with the Lord, for on the Seventh Day He Rested.
TO THE PROPHETS: Psalms 90:4
"For a thousand years in thy (Lord's) sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night."
Verification by 2 Peter 3:8, "But beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." (Not 1001 years multiplied by 4 making a total of 4004 - see Biblical Chronology).
+ 2000 A.D. -- -------------
= 6000 Years
The Comparison of the Sacred and Civil Calendar
THE COMPARISON OF THE SACRED AND CIVIL CALENDAR
The Jewish year being strictly lunar, and the day of the new moon common to the preceding and succeeding month, the correspondences with our month vary in different years, according to the intercalation. Generally speaking, the months appended below to the Jewish are to be taken with ten days (or less) of the preceding month; but sometimes the overrunning is the other way. For example, according to the present calendar of the Jews, the first of Nisan fell on March 21 in 1882, but on April 8 in 1883.
NOTE: The Jewish year contains 354 days, or 12 lunations of the moon; but in a cycle of 19 years an intercalary month (Veadar) is seven time introduced to render the average length of the year nearly correct.
Hence, this accounts for a difference of 243 years between the Civil A.M. (year of the World) and the Sacred year, or 5965 A.M. minus 5722 A.M. (Sacred year) as of 1961 A.D. (see Volume 2, on "The Prophetic Birth Of The Messiah And His Work").
Months: Jewish Calendar
The Present Dispensational Peril of the Jew
To the Physical Israelite, Hebrew, or Jew, the majority of these people today dogmatically insist and contend that there is but one (Monotheistic) God, which we entirely agree is TRUE; and His name which is not commonly known by the Gentiles, or Christendom, is "Yahvah" (see iluustration of names and the meaning of the names under The Sacred Names heading).
(In the illustrations under The Sacred Names heading taken from the book published by Life Magazine, entitled "The World's Great Religions", we can readily see why the Jew rejects the name Christ, which is derived from the Hindo, idol god, Krishna. The ancient Hindus worshipped the Sun as a visible representative of the invisible God called Kris. In their religion Krishna was a personification of the Sun).
Furthermore, many of the Jews today, do not believe, even as they DID NOT believe over 1900 years ago, that "Yahshuah", the Messiah, had already come. Elsewhere shown in this book is the proof of His visitation, proving by the scriptures His fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets (see Matt. 5:17), and in showing this proof, we have used the names most familiar to the World in regards to Him, that name as applied to Him, being "Jesus Christ".
For the Jew not to recognize this visitation, is a very serious mistake, for the very writing which he declares were "Yahvah's" gift unto him, were contained in the Law of Moses, and the Prophets. These writings decidely pointed to, “Yahshuah", or the Messiah, who fulfilled every JOT and TITTLE contained therein.
Furthermore, because of his (the Jew's) non-acceptance, or rejection of the Messiah "Yahshuah", or, - even his failure in not continuing to offer the Sacrifice of BLOOD FOR THE ATONEMENT as required by the Mosaic Law (see Lev. 9:7, 16:34), he is still, even today, in the depths of his SINS. It is through the BLOOD of the Paschal Lamb, the Passover, and the Sacrifices thereafter continued under the Mosaic Law, that typified or foreshadowed the BLOOD of Yahshuah, the Messiah, that we, both Jew and Gentile, have received the TRUE ATONEMENT.
The Rabbinical Jews, Hebrews, or Israelites, of today, definitely and POSITIVELY KNOW, that they are still subject to the Ordinances of the Mosaic Law, that is, if they continue to deny the Blood of the Messiah, for without the SHEDDING OF BLOOD according to the Law, there can be no remission of their SINS. This is strictly true, as referred to the DAILY Sacrifices and the Day of Atonement, which as a rule, the Jew still recognizes, but fails to offer the proper Sacrifices, according to the Law.
The failure of the Jew to accept the true Messiah can be explained by taking his own Scriptures and show how God spoke through the Prophets of their disobedience, carrying out His Purpose throughout the Dispensations and Ages, even to this present time. We quote,
"Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap. Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake" (Psa. 69:22, 23). "Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the Lord" - Yahvah (Jer. 8:12).
However, in the compilation of this book, we have used the names God, instead of (1) "Yahvah" and Jesus Christ, instead of (2) "Yahshuah", the true Messiah. Our Bibles, be they Douay or King James version or otherwise, containing what is called the Old Testament and so-called New Testament, were translated God, the Father and the Son, Jesus Christ from the original Hebrew writings of the Law (Pentateuch) and Prophets and so-called New Testament writings, that used the names Yahvah and Yahshuah as the True Divinely Revealed names (see Chart below).
"Yahvah", or God, in His foreknowledge was able to make the following statements, for He knew what the Jew would do, and in so doing (the breaking of the Commandments) He (God) did sever or break some of them off from salvation because of THEIR UNBELIEF in Yahshuah, or the Messiah (see John 15: 1, 2). However, we are told that "Yahvah", or God, will graft the Jews into their own olive tree AGAIN, that is, if they CONTINUE NOT IN "UNBELIEF" (see Rom. 11: 22, 23).
Paul is writing of his grief or sorrow for Israel in Romans 9:4-6 thusly: "Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the Covenants, and the giving of the Law, and the service of God (Yahvah), and the Promises; Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh (Yahshuah) Christ came, who is over all, God (Yahvah) BLESSED FOR EVER. A-MEN. Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. FOR THEY ARE NOT ALL ISRAEL, WHICH ARE OF ISRAEL:"
Paul speaking to the Gentiles, concerning the Jews that were broken off, and of the Gentiles that were grafted in, said in Romans 11:24-27, "For if thou (the Gentiles) wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to NATURE into a good olive tree: how much more shall these (the Jews), which be the NATURAL BRANCHES, be graffed into their own olive tree? For I would not, brethren, THAT YE SHOULD BE IGNORANT OF THIS MYSTERY, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, UNTIL THE FULNESS OF THE GENTILES BE COME IN. AND SO ALL ISRAEL SHALL BE SAVED: AS IT IS WRITTEN, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For THIS IS MY COVENANT UNTO THEM, WHEN I SHALL TAKE AWAY THEIR SINS".
The Fulness of the Gentiles DID COME IN, according to the Promise in A.D. 40, or when they first began to receive the Holy Ghost (see Acts 10th, 11th and 15th chapters).
That which is a Jew outwardly is not one inwardly, but the Gentile which is grafted in BY FAITH has become the True (Spiritual) Jew, as explained in Romans 2:28, 29 thusly: "For HE IS NOT A JEW, WHICH IS ONE OUTWARDLY: NEITHER IS THAT CIRCUMCISION, WHICH IS OUTWARD IN THE FLESH: BUT HE IS A JEW, WHICH IS ONE INWARDLY; and CIRCUMCISION IS THAT OF THE HEART, IN THE SPIRIT, and NOT IN THE LETTER; Whose PRAISE IS NOT OF MEN, BUT OF GOD" (YAHVAH).
"Until the Fulness of the Gentile be Come In" (see Rom. 11: 25), IS NOT TO BE CONFUSED with "The Times of The Gentiles Be Fulfilled" (see Luke 21:24), because the times of the Gentiles began in 604 B.J., when Nebuchadnezzar began to rule the World, and will not be fulfilled or ended until "Yahshuah", or the Messiah appears again, or the second time, without SIN UNTO SALVATION to Judge the World in Righteousness, and then "ALL ISRAEL WILL BE SAVED" (see Acts 10:42; 2 Tim. 4:1-8 and 1 Thess. 4:16, 17).
The Sacred Names
Exod. 20:7. It reads, "Thou shall not take the name of the Lord they God in vain." This is in the King James version. In Hebrew, it reads thus, "Thou shall not substitute the name of Yahvah thy El, for Yahvah will not hold them guiltless who will substitute His name."
All these years we have substituted His name innocently. The word "Lord" is not a name but a title, it means Baal the sun god, Aedonoi, etc.
This title “Lord” in King James Bible is mentioned 6,779 times in the Old Testament, where it says “Lord,” it is Y.H.V.H. (Yahvah) that is the real name of our heavenly Father.
Exod. 34:5. When Moses was up in Mt. Sinai, Yahvah descended in the cloud and was with Moses there and proclaimed the name of Yahvah. Isa. 42:8. "I am Yahvah, that is my name."
The name Yahvah has a meaning. It means what He represents, His attributes, His character, His is all in all, the creator, all powerful, etc.
Psa. 68:4. Sing unto Elohim, sing praises to His name extol Him that rideth upon the heavens by His name "Yah", (Jah) rejoice before Him."
The word "God" is not a name but a pagan title, and has been only since 700 A.D. when the German people borrowed it from the pagans, and the English people borrowed it from the Germans, and that is how it got into our English Bibles.
Jer. 16:20,21. "They shall know that my name is Yahvah."
Eph. 3:14,15. The whole family of heaven and earth is named by the name of Yahvah.
If we are truly born again, have the true experience within our souls, then we have come under the name of Yahvah, for we are born into the heavenly family and come under His name.
Isa. 52:5-9. "My people shall know my name."
Hos. 2:16,17. The day is coming and now is, that Yahvah will take the names of Baalim out of our mouths and shall no more be remembered by their name.
Jer. 23:25-28. Their fathers have forgotten His name for Baal. Yes, the Father's name Y.H.V.H. (Yahvah) has been forgotten since the dark ages and substituted the name for a pagan title Lord or Baal.
It's high time we know His name and honor Him by calling Him by His true name.
Mal. 1:6. Wherein we have despised His name.
I Cor. 8:5,6. There are many lords and many gods, but there is but one Yahvah.
Now the name Yahshua (Jesus). The name Jesus is not the right name, it comes from two pagan deities, le, the Babylonian deity and Zeus, identified by the Romans with Jupiter lezeus, and gradually became the name of Jesus over 300 years A.D. and it has been handed down to us from one generation to another, and we all took it for granted the names were right, but Yahvah has been so good to us and revealed to us the sacred names. Praise His holy name.
In Rev. 7:3,4, the 144,000 number are sealed in their foreheads. Rev. 14:1, the Father's name and His Son's name are written in their foreheads. Dan. 9:19. The city of thy people is called by thy name.
John 5:43. Reads, "I came in my Father's name." The Father's name is not Jesus, so what is the Father's name. Yah in short and shua mean salvation, so He was called Yahshua. He came for our salvation, for that is what He represented.
John 12:28-30. "Father, glorify thy name." John 17:6-12,22,26. "I have declared unto them thy name." I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me."
Mal. 3:16. "A book of remembrance was written before him that feared Yahvah, and thought upon His name."
Isa. 43:5-7. He will bring His children from the east and west, every one that is called by His name.
Joel 2:32. "Who shall call upon the name of Yahvah shall be delivered. A remnant is called."
Exod. 23:13,24,25. “Make no mention of other gods.”
Psa. 91:14, “He will deliver us, because we have known His name.”
Zech. 14:9. “He shall be King over all the earth, and His name one.” Many names in the Bible have a meaning. Abrah, after he had an experience with Yah, later was called Abraham and Sarai’s names was changed to Sarah. The letter ‘H’ means to love and truth. The letter ‘H’ was added.
Jacob, after having a great experience with Yahvah, his name was changed to Is-ra-El, meaning “having power with El.” El, is the title for God.
Here are a few names with the title ‘El’ added. Names and letters have a meaning – the quality.
El – I.A.H. – J.A.H. The I and J should be Y.
U-ri-El – The light of El.
Ra-pha-El – The healing of El.
Mi-cha-El – Who is like El.
Ga-bri-El – The man of El.
Pe-nu-El – The face of El.
Ha-mu-El - The heart of El.
Is-ra-El - Having power with El.
Uz-zi-El - The might of El.
E-ze-ki-El - The strength of El.
Ish-ma-El - El hears.
Jo-El - Yahvah is El.
Im-man-u-El - El is with us.
Jer-em-Iah - Yahvah establishes.
I-sa-Iah - Yahvah hath saved.
Jos-Iah - Yahvah healeth.
Me-hem-Iah - Yahvah consoles.
Mesh-Iah - Yahvah is with us.
To-bi-Jah - Yahvah is good.
O-bad-Iah - Worshipper of Yahvah.
Zed-ek-Iah- The righteousness of Yah.
Hal-le-lu-Jah - Praise Yah or Yahvah.
Mat. 27:46. Yahshua cried with a loud voice saying, "Eli, Eli Lama sabach thani?" that is to say, "My El, my El, why hast thou forsaken me?" The 'I' stands for 'my' and 'ELI' stands for 'God'. Yahshua called to His Father by His title 'Eli'.
So let us honor our heavenly Father by His right name and let us truly bear His name in our lives, having a real experience with our maker that we may find ourselves with Yahvah and Yahshua our Saviour. Halleluyah.

The Sacred Records
It is generally believed and quite frequently taught that the Sacred Records of the CREATION OF HEAVEN and EARTH were uninterruptedly transmitted from generation to generation, from ADAM to MOSES. This transmission of the Sacred Records is thought to be possible because of the longevity of the people at that time and that the total elapsed period from Adam to the Flood is a relatively short period of 1656 years. From the Flood to the Exodus of Israel or to Moses represents a short Chronological Period of 857 years. The total period of time from the CREATION OF ADAM to MOSES taking into consideration the long life span of the Ante-diluvian Patriarchs and combining the Chronological Periods involved before the Flood and after the Flood, represents a period of 2513 years.
The persons involved in the transmission of the Sacred Records would be the following: (1) The first man, ADAM, whose total life span was 930 years. (2) SETH, the son of Adam, born in the 130th year of Adam’s life. The total life of Seth was 912 years. (3) ENOCH, the seventh generation from Adam, was born in the 622nd year after the creation of Adam and TRANSLATED in the year 987. Enoch was 365 years old at the time of his TRANSLATION. (4) METHUSELAH, born in the 687th year of Adam’s life was 969 years old at the time of his death in 1656, the year of the FLOOD which took place in the 600th year of Noah’s life. (5) NOAH, born in the year 1065 A.M., lived 950 years which places his death in the year of 2006 A.M. or 350 years after the FLOOD. (6) SHEM, Noah’s son, was born in the year of 1558 A.M. and lived 600 years. He was 98 years old at the time of the FLOOD, lived 502 years after the Flood and died in the year 2158 A.M. or 1846 B.J.
From the above we can readily see and UNDERSTAND that Methuselah was born and lived 243 years before the death of Adam, 355 years before the death of Seth, 300 years before the translation of Enoch, 350 years of Noah’s life before the Flood and also 98 years of Shem’s life before the Flood. Therefore, we can understand how the oral or written Records could pass from Adam, through Seth, Enoch and Methuselah to Noah and Shem in the Ante-diluvian Age during the 1656 year from Adam to the Flood.
The Patriarch, Abraham’s vocation took place 427 years after the Flood and Shem died 502 years after the Flood, which would make Abraham 75 years old before the death of Shem. Therefore, it is quite possible that Shem and Abraham could have become acquainted during the lifetime of Shem and received, in the Post-diluvian Age, the records which some theologians claim were passed from Shem to Abraham. It was to Abraham and his Seed to whom God had PROMISED THE BLESSING. Ishmael was the first son of Abraham by Hagar, the bond-woman (Gentile), and Isaac was the second son of Abraham by Sarah, his wife (Jew). Jacob was the son of Isaac, and the father of the twelve tribes of Israel whom Moses led out of the land of Egypt and the house of bondage 430 years after the PROMISE was made. Therefore, from the previous enumeration one can understand why the belief has continued through the years that the records were given to Abraham and were transmitted from him to his sons, Isaac, and from Isaac to Jacob, his son, and to the twelve sons of Jacob who transmitted those records to Moses.
This explanation, then, covers the total Chronological Period of 2513 years, reaching from Adam to Moses. However, the belief of some Theologians of the transmission of the SACRED RECORDS of the CREATION OF HEAVEN and EARTH and the current events of the ANTE-DILUVIAN AGE is disputable, in part, because the modern scientific and philosophical minded theologians see at a glance that if this explanation is accepted it would immediately establish ADAM as the WRITER of the BOOK OF GENESIS in which was RECORDED many HISTORICAL EVENTS which occurred five days prior to ADAM'S CREATION (see Gen. 1:1-26), and over two thousand years after his DEATH (see Gen. 5:1-5). For this reason in particular, this class of Theologians discard the idea that Adam or any of the Ante-diluvian Patriarchs wrote the BOOK OF GENESIS, and declare MOSES to be the true INSPIRED WRITER of the BOOK in question. This view brings to light another GREAT complicated QUESTION.
If Adam is to be rejected as the WRITER of the Book of Genesis on the basis that it contains many HISTORICAL events which occurred five days before his creation and over two thousand years AFTER HIS DEATH, HOW then could MOSES write the HISTORY OF THE CREATION OF HEAVEN and EARTH and the current events of the ANTE-DILUVIAN AGE which occurred over two thousand years BEFORE HE WAS BORN?
The QUESTION is ANSWERED in this way: Moses DID receive his KNOWLEDGE of the current HISTORICAL EVENTS of the Ante-diluvian Age as explained in the foregoing paragraphs but WROTE the HISTORY OF THE CREATION OF HEAVEN and EARTH as is related in the first part of the BOOK OF GENESIS by DIVINE INSPIRATION (see 2 Tim. 3:16). (See illustration below).
God, Abraham and Moses in Relation to the Children of Israel
As the time drew near for God to make the necessary preparation to deliver the Children of Israel out of the Land of Egypt, according to the Promise He (God) had made to Abraham and his Seed, God raised up Moses to deliver the Children of Israel from Egyptian bondage. Moses was reared in the house of Pharaoh, an Egyptian King. At the age of 40 Moses slew an Egyptian for smiting a Hebrew. He fled into the Land of Midian (see Ex. 2:15) and married Jethro's daughter; Jethro owned a flock of sheep and Moses became a shepherd.
After Moses had been in the Wilderness for forty years God manifested Himself to Moses through a burning bush and spoke to Moses telling him to remove his shoes from his feet because the ground on which he was standing was Holy Ground. Pharaoh, the King of Egypt, and typical Man of Sin or Son of Perdition, was reigning at this particular time. However, at that time God did not reveal to him the PURPOSE for which the ground had been consecrated (see Holy Place in Migratory Pattern, see chart below). God then instructed Moses to return to Egypt and deliver the Israelites out of bondage. Moses returned to Egypt, according to God's Divine instruction and simultaneously with the pouring out of the tenth (and last) plague, God instituted the Passover.
Beginning in Egypt and very early in the morning of the next day after the stygian night of the PASSOVER, God, by the phenominal 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 finally into the Wilderness of Sinai in the year of 1490 B.J., This statement includes GOD, the PERSONS, the DATE and the immediate GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION involved in our EXPLANATION. Shortly after Moses had led the children of Israel into the Wilderness, God, speaking from Mount Sinai, gave them the LAW (see Ex. 20th chapter). Thereafter, God called Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu and seventy of the Elders of Israel up into Mount Sinai and they saw (IN A VISION) the God of Israel (see Ex. 24: 9-10). Thereafter, Moses remained in the Mount while all the others, except Joshua (see Ex. 32:17) returned to camp. It was at this time that God MANIFESTED Himself to Moses and those that were with Moses at that time in the "Incorporeal Form of A MAN" (see Ex. 24: 9-10) or a GREAT HEAVENLY ANTHROPOMORPHIC BEING because of three reasons:
(1) He wished them to Know THAT HE was the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob----or the GOD OF ISRAEL, their GOD (see 1 Kings 18:36; 1 Chr. 29:18).
(2) He (GOD) was to MANIFEST HIMSELF in the FLESH in the form of a man and fulfill the LAW and PROPHESIES (see Matt. 5:17; Psa. 40:6-9; Heb.10:5).
(3) After God had manifested Himself in the FLESH (the Messiah) fulfilling that which was written in the Law and the Prophets which foretold His Death,Burial, Resurrection and Ascension, He re-appeared to John on the Isle of Patmos in A VISION on the Seventh Day confirming that He, the God of Israel,was the Alpha and Omega (see Rev. 1:9) the BEGINNING and END, THE ALMIGHTY GOD, the CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE.
To summarize the (a) section under the caption of the EXPLANATION above, we are referring to the DIVINE INSPIRATION by which Moses wrote the Genesis in relation to God, Abraham and the Children of Israel.
The Vision of the Three-Fold Archetypical Pattern in Relation to the Three-Fold Tangible Sanctuary
It was also in the Mount that Moses received the VISION of the three-fold ARCHETYPICAL PATTERN in relation to the three-fold Tangible Sanctuary. The VISION of the three-fold ARCHETYPAL PATTERN is explained in this way: GOD, the GREAT HEAVENLY ANTHROPOMORPHIC BEING, instantaneously TRANSFORMED HIMSELF into a three-fold completely furnished, Intangible Sanctuary so that Moses could SEE the total structure; with its Brazen Vesseled exterior furnishings and the Golden Vesseled interior furnishings therein, and also the interior hanging curtains and the departmental DIVIDING VAIL, lavishly embellished with Angelic Figures. Thus, in this way, God was able to SHOW Moses the three-fold INTANGIBLE SANCTUARY and make him thoroughly UNDERSTAND and retain in his MIND HOW, thereafter, he was to build the (Figurative) three-fold Tangible Sanctuary for a Dwelling Place for Him (God) among the Children of Israel (see Ex. 25:8) fashioned like the PATTERN which Moses had SEEN in the Mount (see Ex. 25:40) This was necessary since God or the Godhead is threefold, namely, (1) THE FATHER (2) THE WORD and (3) THE HOLY GHOST and these THREE are ONE (1 John 5:7) ALL IN ALL (1 Cor. 15:28) SUPREME SPIRIT EMBODIMENT (Acts 17:28).
Therefore, the TRANSFORMED STATE of the GOD HEAD into the INTANGIBLE SANCTUARY or INCORPOREAL PATTERN, shown to Moses in the Mount, MUST BE threefold, or DIVIDED into THREE PARTS. These three parts are namely, (1) THE MOST HOLY PLACE (2) THE HOLY PLACE and (3) THE COURT AROUND ABOUT. These manifested three-fold parts of the Tabernacle (with the Phenominal Cloud standing above it) ARE IN REALITY one complete TABERNACLE herein called the Incorporeal Pattern of the Universe with its contents which are as follows:
(1) THE MOST HOLY PLACE (Entrance into is called Second Vail)
(a) The ark of the Covenant with its two Cherubims of Glory with their wings overshadowing the Mercy Seat thereon, and the tables of stone and Aaron's Rod contained therein. (A blue, purple and scarlet colored Vail, lavishly embellished with Angelic Figures divided the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place). See Plate No. 3 under the Vision and History of Heaven and Earth.
(2) THE HOLY PLACE (Entrance into is called First Vail or Door)
(a) The Golden Candlestick
(b) The Golden Overlaid Table of Shew-bread
(c) The Golden Altar of Incense
(3) THE COURT AROUND ABOUT
(a) The Brazen Altar of Sacrifice
(b) The Brazen Laver (containing water for Priest to wash)
To summarize the (b) section under the caption of the EXPLANATION, above, we are referring to GOD, the UNIVERSAL SPIRIT and THREE-FOLD ARCHETYPE INCORPOREAL PATTERN in relation to the THREE FOLD INTANGIBLE SANCTUARY, which Moses SAW in A VISION while he was yet in Mount Sinai. Thereafter, he was to construct the TANGIBLE or PHYSICAL SANCTUARY or TABERNACLE in the Wilderness according to the manifested description explained in the paragraph above. (See Sanctuary of Tabernacle in Pictorial illustrative chart, captioned, God, the ARCHETYPE (original) PATTERN OF THE UNIVERSE Series No. 1 chart).
The Vision and History of the Creation of Heaven and Earth
Moses, while still in the Mount, and within the Midst of the Cloud, was SHOWN another VISION - this time a PANORAMIC VISION of the CREATION OF HEAVEN and EARTH. GOD MANIFESTED HIMSELF to Moses in an Incorporeal Form (see Ex. 24:9-10; see also the Transfiguration, Matt. 17:1-2) as the CREATOR OF HEAVEN and EARTH and in this VISION Moses “HEARD and SAW," within SIX SOLAR DAYS, God in the process of CREATION by HIMSELF, THE PATTERN. day by day in logical sequence until He had reached the Seventh Day. It was on this Seventh Day that GOD RESTED and sanctified it and called it the SABBATH. All of this took place during the forty day period that Moses was in Mount Sinai.
Inasmuch as we seek and desire to explain and show our concept and understanding of WHAT GOD IS . . . WHAT, WHERE, WHEN and HOW HE created or formed the Angelic Host and the Heaven and Earth, it is also necessary that we produce sufficient, concrete evidence that our concept is both Theologically and Scientifically verified by other witnesses. We have previously propounded, to some extent, that God is Spirit (see John 4:24). That is to say, God is the Ultimate Source, Infinite and Immaculate Substance, the Incomprehensible and Inscrutable Principle, the ALL IN ALL, an Eternal, Independent, Self-existing Diety without visible shape or form (see Deut. 4:12 and John 5:37). Therefore, He is, within Himself, the sum total embodiment of "ALL" of the attributes of Intelligence and Wisdom,Knowledge and Power, Mercy and Justice, Law and Order, Love and Beauty, Life and Truth, etc. (See self explanatory illustrative chart - Figure 1, part 1, and Figure 2 below).
However, in this state or condition He is, or rather was inconceivable. Therefore, with the desire to Create the Heaven and Earth and thereafter manifest His existence to all that in them is; it was of His own volition necessary for Him to "FIRST" take on Super "INCORPOREAL FORM" (in part) which would be better known and understood by the name "Messiah or Christ" (see Figure 1, part 2, and Figure 3 below, the "TRUE BEGINNING" of the Creation of God (see Rev. 3:14). In this condition He was the Universal Archetype Pattern of everything "Incorporeal and Physical" that He thereafter created. In the illustration, Figure 4 below, we mean that in the Realm of Eternity, he created the Spirit Beings or the Angelic Host, first before He created the physical creation.
Finally, God took on Physical Shape and Form (in part, not in totality) and manifested in the Material Creation and thereafter in Jesus, as shown in the illustrations, Figure 1, part 3 and Figure 5 below (see John 1:14; 1 Tim. 3:16; 1 John 5:20). As stated in John 1:1-2, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made."
Thus, this exotic and esoteric secret was revealed to Solomon and expressed in these words, "THE LORD possessed me in the BEGINNING of His way, BEFORE HIS WORKS OF OLD. I was set up from EVERLASTING, from the BEGINNING, OR EVER THE EARTH WAS. When there WERE NO DEPTHS, I was brought forth: when there WERE NO FOUNTAINS ABOUNDlNG WITH WATER. Before the mountains were SETTLED. BEFORE THE HILLS WAS I BROUGHT FORTH: While as YET HE HAD NOT MADE THE EARTH, NOR THE FIELDS, NOR THE HIGHEST PART OF THE DUST OF THE WORLD. When He prepared the heavens, I WAS THERE: when He set a compass upon the face of the depth; when He established the clouds above; when He strengthened the fountains of the deep; when He gave to the sea His decree, that the waters should not pass His COMMANDMENT: WHEN HE APPOINTED THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH: THEN I WAS BY HIM. AS ONE BROUGHT UP WITH HIM: . . ." (Prov. 8:22-30).
Whereas Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu and the seventy elders, after ascending Mount Sinai, SAW (in a vision) Him (Christ) in this Super INCORPOREAL FORM whom they recognized as the God of Israel; ("And they saw the God of Israel; and there was under His feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the Body of Heaven in His clearness"' Ex.24:10), BEFORE Moses entered into the midst of the Cloud, which typified his entrance into the presence of God in "THE REALM OF ETERNITY" - wherein Moses "HEARD" the spoken words of God, "BEFORE TIME BEGAN," which SPONTANEOUSLY transformed Spirit or substance, in part, into a large super mass of inorganic and inanimate matter.
"FOR HE SPAKE, AND IT WAS DONE; HE COMMANDED, AND IT STOOD FAST" (Psa. 33:9). "Through faith we understand that the WORLDS WERE FRAMED BY THE WORD OF GOD SO THAT THINGS WHICH ARE SEEN WERE NOT MADE OF THINGS WHICH DO APPEAR" (Heb. 11:3). With the Heaven, space) and Earth in this condition, Moses "SAW", recognized and said, “In the beginning (of his vision) God created the Heaven and Earth" (Gen. 1:1). If we, as scientists. engaged in an extensive and intensified research, thoroughly understood by Divine Interpretation that God is Spirit (see John 4:24) inhabiting Eternity (see Isa. 57:15) and that God created MATTER and that MATTER IS SPIRIT MATERIALIZED, which MATERIALIZATION took place SPONTANEOUSLY, in the Realm of Eternity, BEFORE TIME BEGAN and still continues to abide within this Eternal Realm, then we could very easily UNDERSTAND that there is no solution to the Age old problem and question of "HOW OLD THE HEAVEN and EARTH IS”. ACTUALLY we must UNDERSTAND that we CANNOT TIME, or calculate the Age of Creation by the physical objects of the Creation, such as the OPERATION MOON and STARS, when it is the repeated routine function of these previously created objects that make up what we call "TIME". Or in other words. we cannot take the created objects which are necessary to establish TIME, to TIME their OWN CREATION. Therefore, scientists never will by Geological, Archaeological and other methods of scientific research, including OUTER SPACE EXPLORATION, be able to determine the Age of the Creation, without FIRST determining the AGE of the ETERNAL CREATOR - GOD, because, as we have already explained, MATTER IS SPIRIT MATERIALIZED. For example: A watch is made to tell TIME, in seconds, minutes and hours - but it was not made to TELL HOW OLD THE WATCH itself is, or the age of the Watchmaker.
A more detailed account of Moses' VISION OF THE CREATION is more fully explained herein.
"Moses went into the Mount and a CLOUD covered the Mount. And the Glory of the Lord abode upon Mount Sinai, and the CLOUD covered it SIX DAYS: and the SEVENTH DAY HE (GOD) called unto Moses out of the MIDST of the CLOUD. And the sight of the GLORY of the Lord was like a devouring fire on the top of the Mount in the eyes of the Children of Israel (no night in the Holy Place in the Earthly Sanctuary - compare with Rev. 21:1-23). And Moses went into the MIDST of the CLOUD, and gat him up into the Mount: and Moses was in the Mount forty days and forty nights" (Ex. 24: 15-18).
(NOTE - In the following copy of the above paragraph we are inserting in the proper place Moses' VISION of the CREATION OF THE HEAVEN and EARTH, which took place in the first SIX SOLAR DAYS OF THE SEVEN, while Moses was in the MIDST of the CLOUD (symbolizing his presence in ETERNITY) during the forty days he was in Mount Sinai).
Moses went into the Mount and a CLOUD covered the Mount. And the Glory of the LORD abode upon Mount Sinai, and the CLOUD COVERED IT SIX WAYS: ("In the BEGINNING (of Moses' Vision) God CREATED THE HEAVEN and THE EARTH, - see Gen. 1:1, also, the numbers preceding the following statements are referring to the verses of scripture in the first chapter of Genesis). 2 - And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 - And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 - And God saw the light, that it was good: and God DIVIDED the Light from the Darkness. 5 - And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 - And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it DIVIDE the waters from the waters. 7 - And God made the firmament, and DIVIDED the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 8 - And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. 9 - And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10 - And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called He seas: and God saw that it was good. 11 - And God said. Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 - And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind; and God saw that it was good. 13 - And the evening and the morning were the third day. 14 - And God said, Let there be light in the firmament of the heaven to DIVIDE the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 - And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth; and it was so. 16 - And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: He made the stars also. 17 - And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth. 18 - And to rule over the day and over the night, and to DIVIDE the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 19 - And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. 20 - And God said, let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 - And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22 - And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23 - And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24 - And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 - And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
26 - And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 - So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 - And God blessed them, and God said unto them: Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 - And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30 - And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. 31 - And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them (Gen.2:1). 2 – And on the Seventh Day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. 3 - And God blessed the Seventh Day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made. 4 - These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, IN THE DAY (OR ETERNITY) that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.
And the SEVENTH DAY HE (GOD) called unto Moses out of the midst of the "CLOUD." And the sight of the GLORY of the Lord was like a devouring fire on the top of the Mount in the EYES OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL. And Moses went into the MIDST of the CLOUD, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights (Ex. 24: 15-18).
To summarize: the (c) section under the caption of the EXPLANATION above, we are referring to THE VISION and HISTORY OF THE CREATION OF HEAVEN AND EARTH - AND GOD'S REST OR SABBATH DAY.
God inhabits ETERNITY (Isa. 57:15) as indicated by His Incorporeal Form, WITHIN THE CLOUD, that covered Mount Sinai. Hence, the actual CREATION OF HEAVEN AND EARTH must emanate from God and TAKE PLACE in the REALM OF ETERNITY. Therefore, these created physical objects such as the Sun. Moon. Stars and other Planets function within the REALM OF ETERNITY and cause THE REALM OF TIME TO EXIST.
Moses, having first SEEN GOD (in the VISION) before He began to create, therefore, SAW the entire process of the CREATION. When he began to write, starting with the beginning of the VISION, he wrote: “In the beginning God created the HEAVEN AND THE EARTH" (Gen. 1:1).

(2) In the picture we have tried to show and illustrate the Godhead as the Archetypal Pattern of the Universe by "Transfiguring" the Godhead into the threefold "Tabernacle" and then placing the Tabernacle along beside EACH DAY of the Six (solar) days of Moses' Vision of the Creation of Heaven and Earth, AS IS, recorded in the first and second chapters of the Book of Genesis.
(3) Notice carefully that each day and each current event which Mose states, occurred during each day, is analogically compared with the Tabernacle and its interior and exterior furnishings and the Purpose for which everything was used, as indicated in self explanatory words in each Plate - which represents a day within itself. Remember that One Day with the Lord (not man) is as a thousand years and a thousand years is as One Day (2 Pet.3:8; Psa.90:4). Hence, 6 days are equivalent to 6000 years (see chart under How to Calculate Time with the Lord-Not Man).
(4) By using the Tabernacle (marked “Pattern" in Plate #1 above) as an imaginary loose Plate and placing it over all other Plates, noticing the wording in each Plate, you will have an idea of the current events which took place each day of Moses' Vision of the Creation of the Heaven and Earth. "For He (God) spake, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast" (Psa. 33:9). That is, God spoke in the Realm of Eternity before Time Began - and the "Heaven and Earth" appeared to Moses in the Vision, in its Dark Chaotic State as Moses described it in Genesis 1:1-2-as we have tried to show it most particularly at the bottom of the picture in Plate # 4 above, marked Cosmogony and also in Plate #5, marked "Chaosis." (Moses said nothing about his seeing the Creation of Angels, although they were shown or did appear to him within the Vision of "Intangible Tabernacle" as shown on the Second Vail, neither did he say he saw the separate Creation of each atomic element of Matter, as we have shown in the Holy Place, in the center of Plate #4, marked "Cosmogony").
(5) By moving in an upward direction, using the Migratory Pattern, Plate #13, in the same way as we have said to use the Tabernacle (marked Pattern – Plate # 1) you will be able to understand why the Paschal Lamb was slain in Egypt, and Egypt is called the Outer Court. where the waters of the Red Sea were Miraculously "Divided" forming a door, also the waters of the River Jordan were "Divided", rending the Vail as an entrance into Canaan Land, which is called the Most Holy Place. Another example, moving from left to right, across the top-Cosmic Light, Plate #6 above, in the Creation, Gen. 1:1-3) is shown by the Shechinah Light (Ex.25: 22: Lev. 16:2) illustrated in the Pattern of the Tabernacle, Plate #3, reflected between the Wings of the Cherubims within the Cloud, in the Most Holy Place, and by the "Light of the Sun" on the Fourth day, Plate #9 above, of the Vision of the Creation, seen by Moses while in Mount Sinai. The Light is also identified with the "Light of the Sun" shining upon the Temple, which was overlaid with gold and decorated with precious stones in Canaan Land, or the Most Holy Place in the Migratory Pattern, Plate #13, etc. It is the Word of God that formed the Second Vail and "Divided" the Light from the Darkness in the Creation. Compare the operations throughout the series of the illustrated pictures with the Tabernacle and the Migratory Pattern. Thus, you have the spontaneous appearance of the Heaven and Earth, and the Six days of the Creation, first by the Lord God, the Archetype Pattern, second by the Pattern of the Tabernacle, and third by the Migratory Pattern, or the journey of the Israelites from Egypt to Canaan Land.
This Panoramic Vision of God in the process of creation which Moses SAW while he was "WITHIN the CLOUD," symbolizes his presence within "THE DAY" or within "ETERNITY" during the first SIX SOLAR DAYS of the forty day period that he was in Mount Sinai. This was in the third (sacred) month and year of 2513 A.M. or 1490 B.J. and was recorded AS IS, in the first part of the BOOK OF GENESIS. As Moses was a witness, through the Vision of the creation we can understand HOW he could WRITE the HISTORY OF THE CREATION OF THE HEAVEN AND EARTH and compile the BOOK OF GENESIS.
Regarding the "SABBATH DAY" as a day of rest for mankind to keep, it is easy to see and clearly under- standable that since Moses WROTE the Book of Genesis in the Wilderness of Sinai in 1490 B.J. and placed the VISION, which he SAW in the Mount, in the first part of the Book of Genesis, AS IS; neither Adam nor any other of the Ante-diluvian or Post-diluvian Patriarchs prior to Moses could have known anything about the SABBATH DAY. In the second month (Ex. 16:1) after their arrival and residence in the Wilderness of Sinai, the Israelites began to murmur for food and for six days God gave them manna from Heaven (Ex. 16:23-28). They were to gather enough on the sixth day to supply them during the SEVENTH DAY or THE SABBATH. It was here in the Wilderness of Sinai at this time, 1490 B.J., that for the first time in the History of the World God FIRST mentioned to mankind anything about the REST or the SEVENTH DAY, or the keeping of A SABBATH DAY. God, in speaking the Commandments from Mount Sanai, in the third month (Ex. 19:1) THEREAFTER, reminded the Israelites to remember the SABBATH DAY to keep it HOLY. After speaking the Commandments from Mount Sinai, God called Moses up into the Mount which the CLOUD covered SIX SOLAR DAYS and Moses SAW God in the process of CREATING THE HEAVEN AND EARTH (Gen. 1:1-31 and Gen. 2:1-4).
It was here in Mount Sinai that God (who, as previously explained, is Spirit) took on the "Incorporeal Form" of Man (Ex. 24:10) and appeared to Moses in "A VISION." Thereafter, the transmutable part 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” (Gen. 1:1). Paradoxical as it may seem, John, in his Vision on the Isle of Patmos stated that the "Lamb of God" was slain "From the Foundation of the World" (Rev. 13:8 and Rev. 17:8) which means that the "Paschal Lamb" in the Dark Chaotic Land of Egypt had to be slain therein “Before the Beginning of the migration or departure of the Israelites from Egypt.” Thus, the Heaven and Earth which Moses "SAW" in the VISION WITHIN the MIDST of the CLOUD was in the same Dark Chaotic condition as the Land of Egypt AFTER the pouring out of the “Ten Plagues" and the offering and Blood of the "Paschal Lamb" BEFORE the "BEGINNING" of the Israelites departure therefrom (see Ex 12 : 1-15).
In this "COMPARATIVE TYPE" we are using the Red Sea for a boundary line between Egypt and the Wilderness of Sinai. In other words, we are using the Mystic Darkness and waters of the Red Sea to completely surround the Plague stricken Chaotic Land of Egypt, as described in the Beginning of Moses' VISION of the Creation in Genesis 1:1-31. (See and compare Gen.1:2 with Ex. 10:21-23). From within this ethereal Darkness and Chaotic MASS, Moses “HEARD" God speak the words, "Let there be light, and there was light" (Gen. 1:2).
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 its vegetable and animal kingdoms as Moses knew them before, and as we now know them.
In this VISION God, in "Speaking and Dealing" with this PARENT MASS, during these SIX (SOLAR) DAYS, thoroughly demonstrated that HE IS "UNIVERSAL SPIRIT LAW and ORDER WITHIN HIMSELF." Whereas, on the SEVENTH DAY He rested and Sanctified that DAY because in it HE RESTED FROM HIS WORK OF CREATION (Gen.2:1-3).
Before Moses descended the Mount after he had witnessed the CREATION OF HEAVEN AND EARTH during the first SIX SOLAR DAYS and God had RESTED 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 therein by the finger of GOD. God had instructed Moses to place the tables of stone with the Commandments written therein inside the Ark of the Covenant in the Most Holy Place in the Tabernacle. Moses, in descending the Mount, came within view of the Children of Israel disobeying the Commandments of God by worshipping the Golden Calf. In seeing the Children of Israel worshipping the Golden Calf, Moses waxed hot and threw down the first tables of stone and broke them. After God and Moses had chastised the Children for making and worshipping the Golden Calf, God called Moses back up into the Mount again and gave him the second tables of stones (see Ex. 34:1-2) to place in the Ark of the Covenant signifying the New Covenant (see Jer. 31:31-34). If we subtract the SEVEN DAYS which includes the SABBATH from the forty days and forty nights which Moses remained in the Mount, we will have THIRTY-THREE more days that Moses remained in the Mount after he SAW the VISION OF CREATION, which (counting one day for a year - Num. 14:34 and Ezek. 4:6) is equivilent to the WORD OF GOD, manifested in the FLESH, or the total (33 1/2 years) life span of Jesus the Christ or the Messiah, on the earth plane fulfilling the Law and the Prophesies (See Isa. 8:20; Matt. 5:17 and Luke 24:44).
There is quite a lot of modern, scientifical and theological, and cosmological speculation introduced under the caption of "The Theory Of The Original Or Pre-Adamic Earth."
The Theory of the Original or Pre-Adamic Earth
Thus far, science has failed to present sufficient concrete evidence to prove the origin, (the systematical development by a definite God-given Pattern) Purpose and final destiny of the Universe. Neither have the theological exponents of the Sacred Scriptures been able to do so with any dependable degree or scientifical accuracy or intellectual infallibility. For example: Some of our theological commentators on the Sacred Scriptures express the belief that there was a Pre-Adamic earth created and inhabited by a human race of people and destroyed before the creation of Adam.
The subject is introduced in explanatory theological writings under the caption ORIGINAL OR PRE-ADAMIC EARTH. This theological idea was conceived and based on Gen. 1:1 which reads as follows: "In the beginning God created the heaven and earth." The foregoing quotation is offered and is supposed by the proponents of the doctrinal idea to be the Original or Pre-Adamic Earth with the previously created human inhabitants therein. For some reason, presumably sin, the exponents of this theological idea aim to show that God overthrew the Original or Pre-Adamic Earth by using the second verse in Genesis to prove their point which reads as follows: "AND the Earth was without form and void; and Darkness was upon the face of the deep. AND the SPIRIT of GOD moved upon the face of the waters." (Gen. 1:2).
If we are to abide by the rules of correct use of language and punctuation, we are definitely compelled to disagree with the idea of supplemental desposition of unwritten words between the first and second verses (1:1 and 2) of Genesis to modify the correct reading to prove non-scriptural, unsupported theological theory. To us the correct way to read and understand the first and second verses of the first chapter of Genesis are as follows:
Notice that the first verse and first sentence ("In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.") ends with a period; the second verse and second sentence begins with the word "AND" which is an articulation or conjunction that joins together the first and second verses of Genesis 1:1-2 to complete this thought. Hence, the second verse is Moses' actual description of the CONDITION which the atmospherical heaven (not heavens) and physical earth was in when they were spontaneously created in the REALM OF ETERNITY. That is to say, the atmospherical heaven had no cosmic light, neither did it have illuminous physical objects such as the Sun, Moon and Stars. Likewise, the physical earth first appeared in its inorganic and inanimate state as Moses also indicates in his Vision as stated in the second verse, Genesis 1:2.
As heretofore stated, Moses, while within the CLOUD atop Mount Sinai, SAW God (in a Vision) creating the Heaven and the Earth, day by day in logical seguence during the first SIX SOLAR DAYS of this Vision. Whereupon, the Creation having been finished, God RESTED the SEVENTH DAY or the SABBATH, from His work of Creation and therefore, John states that he was on the Isle of Patmos on the LORD'S DAY or the SEVENTH DAY which is the same day that Moses states that God RESTED from His work of Creation. Moses having seen God, the ALPHA and the BEGINNING of Creation and John having seen Christ in his Vision of the same God (on the Seventh Day), the OMEGA, or the ENDING - which, for this reason, we say that Moses was looking from ALPHA to OMEGA and John was looking from OMEGA to ALPHA to complete, or to confirm the fulfillment of all things which were written in the Law and the Prophesies (Luke 24: 44), which were done by THE MESSIAH or JESUS CHRIST to manifest His entire PURPOSE and PLAN through the Dispensations and Ages or from the "BEGINNING" to the "ENDING" thereof.
The Esoteric Secret and Profound Mystery of God Revealed to the Apostles
It is true that the Angels of the Invisible Realm and the Patriarchs and Prophets of the Visible Realm in the past Dispensations and Ages SAW VISIONS, SPOKE and WROTE under the influence of a Higher Power. But, it is quite clear to the divine, philosophical and scientific mind that the great esoteric "secret of secrets" and profound "mystery of mysteries" of God was not understood by them (see Col. 1:26-27). That is to say, it was "HID" in God and NOT REVEALED unto them in its utter simplicity (see I Pet. 1:10-12).
According to Biblical chronology, the Flood, or Deluge,took place in the year of 1656 A.M., after the finished creation, or 2348 B.J. The vocation of the Patriarch Abraham begins 427 years after the Flood. Jesus Christ said to the Jews, "Before Abraham was, I AM" (John 8:58). In confirmation of the above statement of Christ, the Apostles John and Paul stated that Jesus Christ, (of whom Moses and the Prophets wrote- Luke 24:44) was God, Himself manifested in the FLESH (John 1:1-4; 1 Tim.3:16). Therefore, before the beginning of Creation and many centuries before the DAYS OF HIS "FLESH" (see Ex. 24:10-11), He was the ULTIMATE and ORIGINAL SOURCE from which all esoteric “secrets and profound mysteries" had their beginning.
As such, He was the SOURCE, SUBSTANCE and the CREATOR of all inanimate and animate things and living creatures, visible and invisible. Whereas, in the DAYS OF HIS FLESH, He knew and understood all things. According to the biography of His life, in the days of His flesh (see Matthew, Mark, Luke and John)
He proved this enescapable TRUTH by the infinite WISDOM wherewith He taught the people and by the many MIRACLES which God performed through Him (Jesus).
As for Jesus' teaching - it went a million miles over the heads of the Sanhedrin Council (teachers of Israel) and the multitudes. Today, nearly two thousand years hence, it is still as far over the heads of so-called Christendom. If this was not true, the world of mankind would have become reconciled unto God and among themselves in the beginning of the Christian era and remained so unto this day. As for His miracles which God performed through Him, He turned water into wine, told men their unexpressed thoughts, healed the sick, raised the dead, walked on the water, fed the multitudes, caused the fig tree to wither and stilled the tempest. Later on you will learn that Jesus Christ performed these miracles by "UNIVERSAL SPIRIT LAW" and according to the Divine Pattern of the Universe.
Jesus Christ fulfilled the Law and the Prophets (see Luke 24:44) and told His Disciples that they would receive the Holy Ghost from God (after His departure out of the flesh) which would REVEAL the "secrets" of the Most High God unto them and impart KNOWLEDGE and UNDERSTANDING of the MYSTERY of His WAY and WILL. After the ascension of Christ, God did REVEAL the great “secrets of secrets and mystery of mysteries” to the chosen Disciples of Christ. Thereafter, they knew by the Divine Pattern and the Law of Commandments in the Ark of the Covenant, that there was in existence an "ARCHETYPAL PATTERN" of the Universe with a "SPIRIT LAW" embodied therein. They understood the silent but POWERFUL, perpetual, routine FUNCTIONS and OPERATIONS of the "UNIVERSAL SPIRIT LAW" in relative coordination with the ARCHETYPAL PATTERN." Since then, however, few others, if any, have ever received a full profound KNOWLEDGE of the EXISTENCE of the "ARCHETYPAL PATTERN" and thoroughly understood the perpetual, routine operation of the "SPIRIT LAW" by which the Universe was methodically created and perpetually controlled, thereafter, with unerring accuracy.
The Universal Ontological Argumentation in Favor of the Existence of a Supreme Being
To speak directly of the masses of people on the earth plane, it would be absurd to say here that mankind, from his very earliest inception in the past Ages, did not BELIEVE in the existence of the "SUPREME BEING" of his IMAGINATION, simply because of his expressions and manifested ignorance of the eternal EXISTENCE of the TRUE "PATTERN" and "SPIRIT LAW" of the UNIVERSE and the fundamental principles involved in the operations of the "SPIRIT LAW" embodied therein. Even though we do have many professed skeptics, atheists, agnostics and infidels in this Present Age, the attested TRUTH and scientifically proven FACTS IN THE CASE are as follows:
(1) Many Sacred Historians or Biblical writers including the Ancient, Medieval and Modern, from Enoch, the seventh from Adam, to John the Apostle, speaking of the activities of MAN in his primitive state give rise to the conviction as well as the final conclusion that MAN actually was CREATED with sufficient intellectual capacities. He was imbued with the "POWER" to reason, a disposition to fear and serve, and an instinct to BELIEVE in the eternal existence of a SUPREME BEING, who was and remains far more superior in POWER and INTELLIGENCE than man, himself. In fact, the Apostle Paul agreed with one of the Grecian poets (or philosophers) that we are the offspring of GOD (see Acts 17: 28).
(2) Likewise, many Profane Historians and Philosophers including the Ancient, Medieval and Modern, from Herodotus to H. G. Wells and from Confucius to those of today, speaking of the CREATED state of primitive man in reference to his BELIEF in the eternal existence of a SUPREME BEING, lead directly to the same convictions and final conclusions as those of the sacred writers.
(3) To add to the abundance of testimony already given, the American and British Archaeological Expeditionary Forces, searching here and there or wherever pre-historic beast or man are thought to have existed, have unearthed plenty of incontestable evidence that since man’s inception, in every Age, he has exercised FAITH in the existence of a SUPREME BEING. So, we understand, according to the records, it IS NOT, the idea that mankind DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE EXISTENCE OF A SUPREME BEING. We find that it is true that he has had many conceptions and imaginations regarding what he HAS THOUGHT and NOW THINKS God is - hence, the rise of the Polytheistic, Pantheistic and Monotheistic conceptions of God. These are about the oldest theories which attempt to explain and impart some KNOWLEDGE of the Great God and Creator of the Universe.
New religious theories are being born every year while millions of people throughout the world are becoming more and more confused. As heretofore stated, some have given up the SEARCH FOR GOD in despair, professing to be skeptics, atheists, agnostics and infidels. They take this attitude because they are unable to FIND GOD for themselves or reconcile themselves to honestly BELIEVE in the UNKNOWN GOD and the dogmatic religious philosophy and deception of the masses. Others are pressing on, leaving no stone unturned, honestly searching for God with renewed determination. Among this group are some of the world's most brilliant, academically trained scientists. Many of these scientists, equipped with an expansion of intelligence and new or recently improved mechanical instruments, are laboring in every field of modern research. They are attempting to further explore the material and psychical realm, hoping to FIND GOD and solve the unexplained, mysterious RIDDLE of the Universe.
It is generally believed that when the TRUE GOD is UNIVERSALLY KNOWN as He actually EXISTS, all strife, confusion, bloodshed, poverty, sickness and death will utterly banish from the earth. With this glorious thought in mind many of these scientists have defied death. Some have lost or freely given their lives trying to wrest the fundamental SECRET OF LIFE from the Universe for the benefit of suffering humanity. Failing to understand the secret manifestation of God in the material realm, many trained psychologists have turned their attention to the psychical realm. These trained investigations and carefully planned experiments, although not yet complete in every detail, have led to the birth and establishment of the "New Psychological Religions" of the past few years. It would be a serious mistake to confuse this "New Philosophical Psychology" with the OLD MATERIALISTIC PSYCHOLOGY. They are as far removed from each other as the Planets. Let us pause here and briefly review some of the basic teachings of the "New Psychology."
The Basic Teaching of the New Psychology
From what I am able to understand, many of these modern, academically trained, world famous psychologists have already gone on record "BELIEVING and TEACHING" that GOD is a three-fold "MIND." They do not all call the major part of the great MIND by the same name. It is also true that they do not all agree on a few minor details involved in the ramified functions of this great "MIND", but on the main issues at hand they are well agreed. Some of their presumptions are as follows:
(1) There is presumed to be a “CONSCIOUS MIND” in existence. It is supposed to operate through the “Senses” - sight, taste, touch, smell, hearing, etc. The Conscious Mind is referred to as the vibratory or creative "Thought Chamber" of the physical body where “Ideas” are formed. Hence, all "Voluntary" functions of our physical bodies and everything else connected with our material existence is said to be under the direct control of the "CONSCIOUS MIND." This means that our homes, our business and all other "Conscious" functions of our bodies are controlled or conducted by the "Conscious Mind." There are other functions attributed to the "Conscious Mind", but neither time or space will permit us to discuss them here.
(2) There is also presumed to be a "SUBCONSCIOUS MIND" in existence. The "SUBCONSCIOUS MIND" and the CONSCIOUS MIND" are said to be joined together. The Subconscious Mind has no Conscience. Therefore, it is claimed that the Subconscious Mind is NOT a respector of persons. We are also informed that the great "Subconscious Mind" is far more ethereal and powerful in it's operations than the Conscious Mind. It is said to have complete charge and control of all "Involuntary" bodily functions such as the digestion and assimilation of food, the building of new cells for reparation of the physical body and restoring of mentality, which has been impaired by illness or injury.
The Subconscious Mind is presumed to be the source of great "Wisdom and Power." We are told that there is nothing that it cannot or will not do, once it's wisdom and power has been invoked. It receives ideas, which are sent down to it by the Conscious Mind. We are informed that once an idea is registered in the Subconscious Mind, it will leave no stone unturned until it has brought into actual Manifestation the things which are laid upon it to do. Further, it is claimed that many cases of disease, heretofore pronounced incurable by Medical Science, have been miraculously healed. We are told that the lame have been made to walk and sight restored to the blind. The new discoveries of scientists and inventors - the successful career of professional and business persons, the rising in rank of the ordinary people and the accumulation of wealth in abundance and supreme happiness, all is said to be the "Materialization" of "Ideas" impressed upon the great "SUBCONSCIOUS MIND."
(3) Still "Deeper Down" there is presumed to be a "UNIVERSAL MIND" in existence. The Universal Mind and the Subconscious Mind are said to be joined together. Instead of referring to this "MIND" as the "UNIVERSAL MIND", some of the psychologists call it the great "OVERSOUL", "COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS", “SUPER CONSCIOUSNESS", “SUPERSONIC MIND" "SUBLIMINAL", "INFINITE MIND", etc. In fact there are over one hundred and seventy different scientific and professional names that have been applied to the major part of this great "MIND."
Nevertheless, the name "UNIVERSAL MIND" is very popular and quite frequently used by many of the modern psychologists. It is supposed to be the "GREAT MASTER MIND" of the Universe that embraces and sustains all LIFE, whether it be vegetable, animal, human or otherwise. In fact, we are told by some psychologists that every Cosmic phase of nature is some or other expression of the great "UNIVERSAL MIND." Moreover it is said to be infinite in “INTELLIGENCE, WISDOM And POWER." Therefore, it is from the "Universal Mind", that the Subconscious Mind draws or receives it's wisdom and power. Further, we are told that it is, within itself, far more ethereal and powerful in its functions and operations than the Subconscious Mind. Whereas, the multifarious ramifications of the great Universal Mind are far too complicated to even attempt to fully explain herein.
The determination of these modern psychologists in their effort to “Find and Know God”, is not to be ignored or taken in a passive way. The academically trained. scientific psychologists of today are far too wise to form definite opinions or reach final conclusions before exhausting every means of scientific research within their power to command. Therefore, their disclosures demand the respect and serious attention of the public. However. many of these psychologists are not thoroughly satisfied in every respect with their present understanding and knowledge of the Psychical Realm, but they have not given up the search in despair. The progress is slow, but the “Search” still continues to press on towards the cherished goal.
To briefly summarize the present paramount objectives of the exponents of the “New Psychological Religions" of today, they are still trying to further penetrate and explore the “Psychical Realm”, analyze and give a concise, understandable definition of what the combined Conscious, Subconscious and Universal Mind really "IS" - accurately describe or explain the fundamental PRINCIPLES involved in the classifications and the ramified, departmental functions of this three-fold “MIND."
If, and when this task is accomplished they hope and fully expect to discover the "ONE" and "ONLY" true GOD and Creator of the Universe. Know "WHERE, WHEN, WHY, WHO or WHAT", He really "IS." They fully expect to learn and understand HIS manifestations, invoke HIS Almighty Power, freely partake of HIS infinite Wisdom and Intelligence, which will enable them to Reveal HIS identity to the masses. Thus, in this way, they, like the rest of the great scientific and philosophical minded leaders, hope to completely abolish forever, the present prevailing stupendous ignorance of HIS ever Presence - and lift the nations of the earth plane out of the quagmire of Ritualism and Religious Deception and become permanently established in Universal "Righteousness, Peace and Joy", which IS THE TRUE KINGDOM OF GOD (see Rom. 14:17).
Failure of the Modern--New Psychological Religions
These modern Psychologists have gone a long way up the road through their investigations of the Psychical Realm. They have come close to "finding" the ETERNAL, LIVING GOD. However, they have made three great mistakes that have impeded the progress: (1) their failure to use the GOD-GIVEN PATTERN (see Ex. 25:40 and Heb. 8:5), (2) that of leaving the Biblical, Christ given definition of God (GOD IS A SPIRIT - John 4:24) in the background, and (3) believing and teaching that there is A UNIVERSAL MIND, instead of a UNIVERSAL SPIRIT.
Acknowledgement is made without hesitation that there are many modern schools of this kind and a great number of teachers in the world that are far more capable than this author to intelligently expound their views on this and other secular subjects. Nevertheless, up to this present time they have been unable to impart a clear, concise and understandable definition of what the great intangible and ethereal, so-called "Conscious, Subconscious and Universal Mind REALLY IS; neither have they proven by the God-given Pattern, that it is what they think or say that it is.
Psychologists and teachers have failed to point out and thoroughly explain WHERE, WHEN and HOW the conscious, Subconscious and Universal Minds really work in relation to each other sufficiently for persons of average intelligence to conscientiously recognize (HIS or) ITS presence and sincerely appreciate its benefits. Neither have they successfully proven that this great ethereal, so-called Universal Mind possessed the infinite POWER of systematical materialization or transmutation in totality or in either of its two distinctive parts. (By transmutation, or metamorphosis, I mean - the POWER or POSSIBILITY of MANIFESTATION or apparent change from one substance, form, nature or species into another, and in the process of these series of changes, maintain perfect and absolute control in each and every phase or state of existence). From what we are told of the Subconscious and Universal Mind, both are far too limited to possess these infinite qualities.
Comparative Exegetical Analysis
Mind is most frequently associated with the mental state of a human being, according to reputable lexicographers. Therefore, Mind is constantly subject to fluctuating changes, for better or worse, but not so in the case of God or Spirit (John 4:24) as He said, "For I am the Lord, I CHANGE NOT" (Mal. 3:6).
Dr. Hugo Munsterburg, the former Dean of Psychology at Harvard University, made the statement that there is no such thing as a Subconscious Mind in existence. Here and now I make the unconditional statement that GOD IS NOT a Subconscious or Universal Mind. Instead, God is "ALL IN ALL." That is to say, God IS (the eternal three-fold) Universal “SPIRIT," possessing the power of transmutation in His two manifestations, Incorporeal and Physical. But in the absence of a clear, understandable definition and explanation of what "SPIRIT" REALLY IS - and how it operates, we are still compelled to remain in ignorance or jeopardy. In the pure literal sense of the word, SPIRIT is ABSTRACT. But in the true divine, etymological, concrete sense SPIRIT is the "ALL IN ALL" or the "Terminus Ad quem" of whom a direct and profound knowledge is not claimed. The expression, Terminus ad Quem, refers to God in His Abstract State or without form, being the “limit and bounds" of every conceivable and inconceivable idea of Source and Substance. Wisdom and Intelligence, Knowledge and Power, Law and Justice, Love and Mercy, Beauty and Glory, etc.
In the Abstract sense, absolutely nothing could exist before or independent of SPIRIT. Neither can anything with or without shape or form be pre-existent or co-eternal with SPIRIT. Therefore, as we have already said, God in this state of existence is PURE SPIRIT or ABSTRACTION. But God, in the process of taking on FORM or moving in part from the abstract into the intermediate state, conceived the idea of the Concrete CREATION and the desire to manifest or make Himself KNOWN to His Creatures of the Creation. Now, as God existed in FORM before He began His work of CREATION. He is, therefore, the true three-fold “ARCHETYPAL (SPIRIT) PATTERN OF THE UNIVERSE.”
Inasmuch as God, in this INTERMEDIATE STATE is the true, original INCORPOREAL PATTERN and SPIRIT bv which the invisible and visible parts of the Universe or creation must be systematically FORMED and given LIFE. He must possess (Prov. 8:22) both masculine and feminine generative organs (or the space of the Universe containing everything) within His "SPIRIT EMIBODIMENT." Likewise, God Himself, being the original three-fold "SPIRIT PATTERN," must be within Himself. the immaculate essence or substance, energy or life - and the IMMUTABLE LAW, intelligentlv manifesting Himself or apparently transmuted, in part, into both the INVISIBLE and VISIBLE counterparts of the Universe.
Hence, the Universe in its totality, which expression includes every CREATED object or thing, visible and invisible, animate and inanimate, known and unknown to be in existence, MUST DERIVE FROM and ABIDE WITHIN HIS GREAT "SPIRIT EMBODIMENT" (see Acts 17:28) herein called the ORIGINAL "INCORPOREAL PATTERN" whereby and wherein ALL created things are formed, shaped, animated and constantly controlled thereafter with unerring accuracy by the inviolable and immutable "SPIRIT LAW", which is a part of the great Universal INCORPOREAL PATTERN.
Now as the Universal Creation (a term comprising the whole system of created things) cannot exist independent of "SPIRIT", it is therefore, embodied in GOD and DIVIDED into two distinctive parts, the INVISIBLE CREATION and the VISIBLE CREATION. Thus, the invisible and visible parts of the Universe are the TWO transmuted parts of the great Invisible God, manifesting Himself through the Universal Creation. Here it is not meant that God in "PRINCIPLE" is changeable, but by means of the Creation the MANIFESTATION of God is multiplied and understood through the Realm of NATURE. Hence. this leaves mankind totally without a legitimate excuse for NOT KNOWING GOD AS HE REALLY EXISTS.
David, Jesus Christ and Paul hold this view regarding the Creation (Psa. 19:1-7 and John 3:21). In Romans 1:19-20 we can also find substantiation in reading, “Because that which my BE KNOWN of God IS MANIFEST in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse." To a certain degree, Paul's view is very definitely confirmed by modern science through experimental Atomic Research and philosophical expression. This should furnish us with sufficient ontological proof that it is TRUE that every cosmic phase of NATURE, visible and ultra microscopic, animate and inanimate, organic and inorganic is but some or another expression of the great invisible, three-fold God (see 1 John 5:7). Viewing the facts before us we wonder why it should be necessary for us to pause here and set up delicate mechanical instruments and register "VIBRA- TIONS," or make high powered microscopic investiga- tions, trying to discover and prove the origin of MATTER in defense of this inescapable TRUTH.
It is already KNOWN and scientifically proven that MATTER, in its so-called inanimate and inorganic state, MUST and DOES DERIVE from some definite SOURCE and previously existing, infinite SUBSTANCE. As far as it is now known there is no prospective possibility of "Physical Visualization" of the "Source" or the original "substance" from which MATTER is derived. Nevertheless, if it was God's intention to manifest Himself in His Abstract. Intermediate and Concrete States of existence through the Universal Creation, then the source and the substance from which MATTER derived should not be too hard for us to determine. We should be able to solve this problem by plain, simple and logical deduction because of seven cardinal facts which are as follows:
l. If there is an ETERNAL GOD OR GODHEAD in existence, which we know there is, then NATURE should embrace and MANIFEST some permanent indisputable evidence of His ever-presence. (However, we shall let the students make their own decisions on this score, from the evidence presented herein).
2. If it is true that God did exist as I have said, first in the "Abstract State;" that is to say, He first existed as PURE SPIRIT and WITHOUT FORM or CREATIVE MOTION, then if God wished to manifest HIMSELF the SOURCE and the SUBSTANCE in the CREATION, MATTER MUST BE the direct "VIBRATION or MATTERIALIZATION" of SPIRIT and appear first in the inanimate and inorganic state or WITHOUT FORM and VOID of vegetable, animal or human life.
3. If it is true that God did move from the Abstract to the Intermediate state; that is to say, HE DID exist in INCORPOREAL FORM first, before direct, concentrated, CREATIVE MOTION was established by His immutable SPIRIT LAW, then MATTER, in its organic and animated state, or in FORM and demonstration of vegetable, animal or human life, must be the direct, systematical TRANSMUTATION OF SPIRIT (see Gen. 1: 11- 31) .
4. If it is TRUE that MATTER is (1) the materialization and (2) the transmutation of SPIRIT, then the complete structure of each ATOMIC ELEMENT of matter as well as the entire molecular and true cosmographical structure of the PHYSICAL CREATION should manifest the existence of the GODHEAD. But we refuse to leave the analysis of matter and the solution of this technical problem up to the bias and untrained philosophical, carnal mind of modern skeptics.
We must, therefore, refer our first problem which is (a) the STRUCTURE OF THE GODHEAD to the Divine authorities. Likewise, we must refer our second problem which is (b) the STRUCTURE OF THE ATOM to the practical, scientific authorities. Our paramount objective here is to carefully compare the structure of the ATOM to that of the GODHEAD and also the ATOM to the VISIBLE and INVISIBLE parts of the UNIVERSE, both of which are embodied in God and controlled with unerring accuracy by UNIVERSAL SPIRIT LAW. Hence, the Divine and scientific, authentic explanations are as follows:
5. The Divine Authority of the Structure of the godhead, The Apostle John said, "For there are THREE that bear record in HEAVEN; the FATHER, the WORD, and the HOLY GHOST and these THREE ARE ONE" (I John 5:7).
The Apostle Paul said, "FOR IN HIM (CHRIST) dwelleth ALL the fulness of the GODHEAD BODILY" Col. 2:9). Here we have the “agreeable” statements of the Apostles John and Paul on the Structure of the GODHEAD.
6. The practical, Scientific Authority on the Structure of ATOMS. A brief investigation of scientific data compiled on (1) the ATOMIC (2) the ELECTRONIC and (3) the MOLECULAR discoveries will reveal that basically MATTER is composed of (1) the PROTON, 2) the NEUTRON and (3) the ELECTRON; and these THREE component parts form ONE of these ATOMS. In order to show the manifestation of the THREE-FOLD GODHEAD in these NINETY-ONE, three-fold, ultra microscopic particles of MATTER, our knowledge of the comparisons are as follows:
The NINETY-SECOND and last ATOMIC ELEMENT of MATTER mentioned herein is TWO-FOLD and is composed of (1) the ELECTRON and (2) the NEUTRON and these TWO component parts form the entire physical nucleus of one HYDROGEN ATOM. The TWO component parts of the HYDROGEN ATOM represent (1) the INVISIBLE CREATION and (2) the VISIBLE CREATION, both of which are embodied in GOD and are controlled with unerring accuracy by (3) the UNIVERSAL SPIRIT LAW (see illustration below). In order to show the manifestation of the GODHEAD in the NINETY-SECOND and last ultra microscopic particle of MATTER our knowledge of the comparisons are as follows:
Exemplifications of the comparisons on the opposite page are observed in the three-fold structure of Noah’s Ark, the Tabernacle of Moses, the Temple and the Migration of the Israelites, etc.
It is also noteworthy that the Apostle Paul used parchments (2 Tim. 4:13) to draw the “DIVINE PATERN” or Tabernacle of Moses and to make spiritual comparative illustrations in his teaching (1 Cor. 2:13-16). The best way to understand the illustration of the GOD- HEAD compared to the ELEMENTS of MATTER and TRANSMUTATION are shown in examples (a) and (b) It is important that the student carefully observe and REMEMBER this THREE-FOLD arrangement. The best way to make the comparisons understandable is shown as follows: (1) THE FATHER (2) THE WORD (3) THE HOLY GHOST. (1) THE MOST HOLY PLACE (2) THE HOLY PLACE (3) THE COURT AROUND ABOUT.
7. If we accept the testimony of the Divine and scientific authorities as the TRUTH we are then compelled to AGREE that the "Structure" of the GODHEAD and of the NINETY-ONE ATOMIC ELEMENTS of MATTER are THREE-FOLD. Likewise. we are also compelled to AGREE that the structure of the Universe and the NINETY-SECOND (HYDROGEN) ATOMIC ELEMENT of MATTER is TWO-FOLD and embodied in the invisible third part of the GODHEAD. Whereas, it is apparently evident that each and every ATOMIC ELEMENT and PARTICLE of MATTER embodied in the total structure of the physical CREATION is derived from UNIVERSAL SPIRIT.
In the material realm of NATURE these NINETY ONE, THREE-FOLD, ATOMIC ELEMENTS of MATTER, systematically formed by UNIVERSAL SPIRIT LAW, apparently present sufficient concrete evidence to support the existence of the THREE-FOLD GODHEAD. Likewise, the HYDROGEN ATOM, (herein classified) the NINETY-SECOND and only TWO-FOLD ATOMIC ELEMENT of MATTER, clearly manifests that the UNIVERSE is composed of TWO distinctive parts, namely: (1) the INVISIBLE or INCORPOREAL CREATION and (2) the VISIBLE or MATERIAL CREATION. These are the TWO transmuted parts of the THREE-FOLD GODHEAD.
The apparent total absence of a THIRD part in the TWO-FOLD HYDROGEN ATOM as related to the three-fold GODHEAD and the two-fold Universe also has a very important significance. It reveals that the Invisible or Incorporeal and the Visible or Material parts of the UNIVERSE are embodied in UNIVERSAL SPIRIT, or the major Invisible THIRD part of the GODHEAD. Wherein both are accurately and unerringly controlled by Universal SPIRIT LAW.
To help you better understand our point of view and the explanation given in the foregoing paragraphs we present a few questions and suggested answers. The questions are as follows:
(1) What IS IT that caused the ethereal SPACE" of the Universe to EXIST and constantly remain intact?
(2) What caused the PLANETS to EXIST and operate in space with centrifugal force and unerring accuracy, within their orbit constantly bringing about day and night and the seasons of Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, year after year?
(3) What caused the "SEEDS" of vegetation to EXIST and grow into fruition in abundance and repeated productivity year after year?
(4) What caused the "ORNITHOLOGICAL" or bird) KINGDOM to EXIST and to know how to fly; build nests; lay eggs, hatch and properly care for their offspring?
(5) What caused all other living creatures of the Amphibious Plane (water and land) to EXIST and constantly control their disposition, activities and final destiny?
In considering the suggested answers your attention can be focused again on the heretofore stated concept of MIND, since many of our modern, academically trained, scientific psychologists would have us believe that there is a UNIVERSAL MIND in existence. They also tell us that the UNIVERSAL MIND has TWO parts; the SUBCONSCIOUS MIND and the CONSCIOUS MIND. Further, they would have us believe that the UNIVERSAL MIND is directly responsible for the EXISTENCE of the Universe; that everything in the Universe is accurately controlled by CONSCIOUS MIND, thought impressions that are transferred to and executed by the SUBCONSCIOUS MIND.
Now, can we safely conclude and rest assured that the so-called UNIVERSAL MIND and its TWO parts are directly responsible for the EXISTENCE OF SPACE and infallible control of the planets, seeds, birds and other living creatures of this earth plane? Personally, I do not think so. Why? Because of THREE fundamental, undisputable FACTS which are as follows:
1. No one ever has or can put forth sufficient concrete, Divine and material proof that there is in existence an INTANGIBLE three-fold UNIVERSAL MIND possessed with the infinite power of total or partial systematical materialization and transmutation.
2. No one can prove that the AGREED THOUGHT VIBRATION and FINAL CONCLUSIONS of all living creatures originating in the CONSCIOUS MIND and impressed upon the so-called SUBCONSCIOUS MIND ever did or can CHANGE or OBSTRUCT the circumscribed course of NATURE. In other words, the immutable, inviolable or unobstructable SPIRIT LAW that controls NATURE cannot be changed by our thought vibrations and final conclusions impressed upon the so-called SUBCONSCIOUS or UNIVERSAL MIND.
3. Here lies the ANSWER and TRUE FACTS in the case. The very existence of the UNIVERSE, itself, and limited scientific KNOWLEDGE of its cosmographical structure and perpetual operation of its "Incorporeal and Material" parts actually proves that it is DERIVED from UNIVERSAL SPIRIT - and that it IS controlled with unerring accuracy by inviolable and unobstructable SPIRIT LAW. For example, Man, from his very earliest inception until this present time, cannot point out ONE single error or miscarriage of this infallible and ALMIGHTY SPIRIT LAW.
Year after year the planets still continue to operate in the same way, constantly bringing about day and night and the seasons of the year: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. By no possible chance or error have they ever been removed from their orbit, bumped into each other and exchanged day for night or disrupted the primordial order of the seasons. It is possible that “phenomenon” heretofore unknown to mankind may appear to us in or among the Heavenly bodies for the first time in history; but no one can proclaim with justification or prove that this phenomenal parade in the ethereal space of the Universe is an error or miscarriage of the Universal SPIRIT LAW, because it was and still is only our IGNORANCE of this presence and the true fundamental principles involved in the operation. Neither can anyone truthfully say that the "thought vibrations" of ALL living creatures impressed upon the presumed to exist, SUBCONSCIOUS MIND had anything to do with their existence, categorical operation, and timely phenomenal manifestation.
This very same immutable SPIRIT LAW which formed and caused the seed of the fruit and vegetable kingdoms to exist controls the survival and perpetuation of these "kingdoms" through the Ages by the direct process of periodical maturity and reproduction. But MIND, whatsoever IT IS said to BE, had absolutely nothing to do with the origin of the seeds or the mathematical calculation as to how many different varieties there was to be in existence, nor their natural characteristics and adaptation to environments. For example: The farmer plants the seed in the "ground" and goes away and lets it alone. His concentrated thought vibrations and impressions" upon his, presumed to exist, SUBCONSCIOUS MIND will not effect the productive capacities or quality of the seed or promote the maturity of the fruit and vegetables. However, after he plants his seeds he lets them alone and, if NOT OTHERWISE OBSTRUCTED, they will grow into fruition in abundance. At this point let us completely remove the farmer from the case and discuss the seed and the ground.
Now, can it be truthfully said that the seeds of vegetation are CONSCIOUS of the fact that they are planted and they know how to appeal their case to the so-called powerful, ramified activity of the SUBCONSCIOUS MIND to rear them to maturity? Or, is the ground CONSCIOUS of the fact that the seed is planted therein and IT immediately begins to involve the activity of the SUBC0NSCIOUS MIND to nurse the seeds to fruition? Let us recapitulate. Both you and I KNOW that MIND has absolutely nothing to do with what takes place on the part of the seeds themselves or the ground in which the seeds are planted. For example several comparisons with the three-fold Godhead and the so-called Great Master Mind" of the Universe etc., shall be made.
Let us reconsider the ornithological (or bird) kingdom as included among the "living creatures." Who taught the birds HOW to fly and sing? WHEN. WHERE and HOW were they instructed to build their nests, lay their eggs, hatch and properly care for their offspring? No one taught the birds the sense of direction; yet in moving about from place to place according to the seasons of the year their destination is a foregone conclusion. By no possible chance or error have they flown in the wrong direction and found themselves lost far out over the Pacific Ocean, or perhaps exhausted and stranded somewhere in the icy waste lands of Labrador or the sunbaked sands of the Sahara Desert. At no time have they ever laid their eggs and hatched a nest of flying squirrels. The infallible “spirit Law" governing their existence never fools them or us in any sense of the word.
Consider one of the most incredible, instinctive dispositions manifested in the world of nature-the spawning of fish. Salmon will travel hundreds and hun-dreds of miles, pressing onward, to reach their particular ancestral spawning stream. There and there alone will they give birth to new generations of Salmon.
All the afore mentioned phenomenons are operating under the UNIVERSAL SPIRIT LAW which forms and maintains perfect and absolute control of the so-called inanimate objects such as the planets and living creatures which are a part of this Universe.
Keep in mind that GOD is PURE SPIRIT or SUBSTANCE without shape or form, possessing power to take on “Incorporeal Form" (Prov. 8:22; Rev. 3:14). He also has power to take on "Physical Form." This Anthropomorphic and Monotheistic Concept of God, manifesting Himself through visions in the "Incorporeal State" -- and the "Physical State" (Jesus - Messiah) is beyond question of a doubt a great mystery (1 Tim. 3:16) as stated by the Apostle Paul when he said, "For in Him dwelleth all of the fulness of the God-head Bodily" (Col. 2:9). The Apostle John confirms Paul's statement by saying, "And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true and we are in him that is true, even His Son, Jesus Christ. THIS IS THE TRUE GOD, AND ETERNAL LIFE" 1 John 5:20).
Condensed Summary of the Visions of Moses and the Apostle John in Comparative Analysis, or Apostolic Confirmation of the Creation of the Old and of the New Heaven and Earth, As Pertaining to the Purpose of God
The only reason for writing this summary is because there are many World famous Theologians and Biblical Commentators who do not believe that the Mosaic Visions and writings of the Pentateuch or the first five (5) books of the Bible have anything in particular to do with the Visions and the Book of Revelation, written by the Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos in the Aegean Sea. To entertain such an erroneous idea is to deny that ALL Scripture is given by the Inspiration of God, and is PROFITABLE for DOCTRINE, for RE-PROOF, for CORRECTION, for INSTRUCTION, in RIGHTEOUSNESS (2 Tim. 3:16).
In order to prove the fallacy of such a mistaken conclusion, we will begin this summary by "CORRELATING" the Experiences and Visions of Moses with the Experiences and Visions of the Apostle John, according to the Purpose of God, who is the ARCHETYPAL PATTERN OF THE UNIVERSE, reflecting Himself in the first three (3) of these physical Patterns as recorded in the Pentateuch, namely: (a) Noah's Ark, (b) the Exodus and Migration from Egypt through the Wilderness of Sinai to Canaan Land, (c) the Tabernacle erected by the Prophet Moses, and 4th the Temple in Jerusalem, recorded in I Kings 6:1,38; 2 Chr. 2:2 and 2 Chr. 3:1,2. According to the Purpose of God ALL Visions, Revelations, Prophesies and Experiences MUST follow the God-given Pattern of the Migration, Tabernacle and Temple.
Here and now, we intend or aim to show the experiences of Moses down in Egypt and of the visions and experiences given to him in 1490 B.J., and thereafter in the Wilderness of Sinai in correlation to the Apostle John's visions and experiences, during the 3 1/2 years from A.D.30 to A.D.33 1/2, while he was with Jesus during the time of His earthly Ministry, and to John's visions given in A.D. 96 on the Isle of Patmos, which together, depict the summation of the whole matter. It is the Migratory Pattern, or the journey from Egypt through the Wilderness of Sinai to Canaan Land with Moses, Joshua and the Children of Israel that we mainly desire to refer in showing the infinite relationship of the experiences and visions of John.
Moses-in Egypt had experienced the slaying and eating of the Paschal Lamb of the Passover, before he and the children of Israel passed through the Miraculously Divided Waters of the Red Sea and later arrived in the Wilderness of Sinai. It was here in the Cloud atop Mount Sinai that Moses SAW THE VISIONS of the God of Israel, the Tabernacle and the Creation of Heaven and Earth, the Earth being surrounded by water. It was here in the Wilderness of Sinai in 1490 B.J., that Moses wrote the Pentateuch, or the first five (5) books of the Law which were to govern the Israelites throughout their generations in the Wilderness and in THE LAND OF CANAAN.
John-in Palestine had experienced and witnessed the complete Ministeral life of Jesus, 63 years before he arrived on the Isle of Patmos in the Aegean Sea where he SAW THE VISIONS of Jesus Christ, the Tabernacle and Creation of the New Heaven and Earth which was drawn out of, or typified by the Old Heaven and Earth. It was here in the year A.D. 96, on the Isle of Patmos that John was to "bare record of the Word of God, and the Testimony of Jesus Christ, and of al things that he saw" (Rev. 1:2). Here John was told to write what he SAW and HEARD in the Vision and Revelation and send it to the seven (7) churches which were in ASIA.
We shall recall your attention to Chart Series No. 1, on which is indicated by numbered arrows, the sequence of events to be summarized in relation to Moses' and John's confirmatory Visions. All succeeding numbers indicated in this summary can be followed by the numbered arrows designated on the Charts on pages 51,52,53.
ARROW NO.1 COMPARED TO ARROW NO. 1A (See chart on page 51)
The account which Moses together with Aaron, Nadab,Abihu and seventy Elders saw, concerning the God of Israel in Incorporeal (Anthropomorphic) Form, and the Tabernacle which Moses saw is compared to John's Vision of Christ, on the Isle of Patmos in A.D. 96. Christ Himself, is the True Temple, which is His Incorporeal Body (see Rev. 1:12-16) in whom we live, move and have our being (see Acts 17:28,29), for God or Spirit encompasses all, for He is ALL IN ALL (see 1 Cor. 15:28).
Moses--1 "Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu,and seventy of the elders of Israel; And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under His feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the BODY OF HEAVEN IN HIS CLEARNESS" (Ex. 24:9, 10). "And look that thou make them (the Tabernacle and it's furnishings) after their PATTERN, which was shewed thee in the mount" (Ex. 25:40).
John-1A "And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword; and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength" (Rev. 1:12-16.)
Moses-1-Moses was shown in a Vision, the God of Israel in Incorporeal Form, a Great Heavenly Anthropomorphic Being, as the three-fold Archetypal (original) Pattern, transformed into the three-fold Intangible Tabernacle which he was admonished of God, to build after the Pattern shown him in the Vision while in he Mount (see Ex. 24:9,10; Ex. 25:40 and Heb. 8:5) John-1A-John IN HIS VISION on the Isle of Patmos HEARD THE VOICE that spake with him and he turned and saw Christ, (who is, as we understand Him to be the RESURRECTED and GLORIFIED SANCTUARY or TEMPLE) in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks, clothed with a garment down to the foot and gird about the paps with a golden girdle, which as typified by the garments for Beauty and Glory, and the Ephod with twelve precious stones therein, worn by the High Priest, and the furnishings of the Tabernacle, and the golden, overlaid, covering of the Temple with it's interior furnishings. His hairs were white like wool, which were symbolized by the Cloud that overshadowed the Tabernacle and the Cloud above the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant in the Most Holy Place. Out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword, which typified the powerful effect of ALL the spoken Words of God, that expressed His Purpose from Alpha to Omega, or from the Beginning to the End, including the Words engraved in Tables of Stone, with the finger of God and laid in the Ark of the Covenant; and the words written in the Heart and Mind by the Holy Ghost, under the New Covenant. His Countenance was as the Sun shineth in His strength, this was typified by the Temple elevated on Mount Moriah, in Jerusalem, overlaid with gold and decked with precious stones and the Sun Light shining thereupon, sending it's dazzling rays until the BRIGHTNESS could not be looked upon with the naked eye. His eyes were as a lame of fire, typified by the Shechinah or Light that flashed in the Cloud between the wings of the Cherubims in the Ark of the Covenant, after the Atonement was made for Israel. His feet like unto fine brass typified by the Brazen Altar and Laver in the Outer Court. The Incorporeal Body of Christ, or Christ in God is the True Sanctuary of Sanctuaries (see Rev. 1:10-16).
For John wrote in Revelation 11: 1,2,3 thusly: "And here was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth." In the New Heaven and Earth, "I SAW NO TEMPLE THEREIN: FOR THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY AND THE LAMB ARE THE TEMPLE OF IT" (Rev. 21:22).
ARROW NO. 2 COMPARED TO ARROW NO. 2A (See chart on page 51)
The account which Moses gives of God's Command to slay the Paschal Lamb in the beginning of the Migration of the Israelites from Egypt as recorded in Exodus 12:1-6, is a confirmation of Revelation 13:8, which John saw of Christ as a Lamb slain from the Foundation of the World.
Moses-2 “And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron in the Land of Egypt, saying, This month SHALL BE unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the TENTH DAY of this month they shall take to them every man a Lamb, according to the house of THEIR fathers, a lamb for an house: And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next unto his house take IT according to the number of souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take IT out from the sheep, or from the goats: And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the EVENING" (Ex. 12:1-6).
John-2A "And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, (the beast) whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb (Christ) slain from the foundation of the world" Rev. 13:8).
Moses-2-The Lord God spoke to Moses and Aaron in the Land of Egypt, to instruct the Israelites to slay the Paschal Lamb, the stygian night of the fourteenth (l4th), before the BEGINNING of their Migration from Egypt.
John-2A-John was made to see in his Vision the events of the Passover in Egypt, and the BEGINNING of the Migration. This is compared with Moses' Vision in the Cloud atop Mount Sinai where he SAW the BEGINNING of the Creation, while in the Presence of God. Moses first heard the voice of God and then saw in the Vision, God's Incorporeal Form, which is Christ, the Archetype Pattern (see Ex. 24:29-10 and Rev. 3:14). It was from this Form that Moses SAW God create the Universe. This taking on of the Incorporeal Form from Pure Spirit, and then transforming (in part) into the Creation was God departing from the Pure State of Invisibility to a lesser state of Visibility, or the Intermediate State. Thus, this was a Passover from Pure Spirit to Revealed, Incorporeal Visibility, or being slain, which made John to understand that Christ was a Lamb slain from the Foundation of the World (see Rev.1 3:8).
ARROW NO. 3 COMPARED TO ARROW NO.3 A (See chart on Page 51)
The account of Aaron, Nadab and Abihu together with Moses and the seventy elders of Israel, seeing in a Vision, God in Incorporeal Form, which is the Word of God (Christ) transformed into the threefold Intangible Tabernacle, is comparable to the experiences of Peter, James and John witnessing in a Vision the transfiguration and also the ascension of Christ in Incorporeal Form, in fulfillment of the Law and Prophets as recorded in Matt. 17:1-3; Mark 16:19; Luke 24:51 and Acts 1:9.
Moses-3 "Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders af Israel; And they saw the God of Israel (the Archetype Pattern) : and there was under His feet as it were a paved work of a sapphirestone, and as it were the body of heaven in His clearness" (Ex. 24:9-10). "And look that thou make them (the Tabernacle and it's furnishings) after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount" (Ex. 25:40).
John-3A "After six days Jesus taketh Peter, James and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, and was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun and his rainment was white as the light. And behold, there appeared unto them Moses, and Elias (John the Baptist) talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here THREE TABERNACLES; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him... And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the VISION to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead" (Matt. 17:1-9).
In fulfillment of the Law which Moses wrote, the Messiah, or Jesus Christ did come to fulfill the Law and the Prophets, as He said in Matt. 5:17,18. The same Incorporeal Form which Aaron, Nadab and Abihu together with Moses and seventy elders SAW in Mount Sinai, had to be seen in a Vision, in fulfillment, by Peter, James and John at the transfiguration of Jesus Christ in Incorporeal Form in the Mount of Transfiguration, and also at the Ascension of Christ which was a Resurrected, Incorporeal Body.
As Moses saw in The Vision, the Incorporeal Form (Christ) transform into the three-fold Intangible Tabernacle, being the first Prophet to Prophesy under the Law; and John the Baptist was the last to Prophesy to the coming of Jesus Christ, who was also under the Law, then it was necessary for Moses and John the Baptist to appear in the transfiguration. Since Moses was shown the Vision of the Tabernacle, Peter, James and John heard his conversation concerning the Tabernacle which caused Peter to make the statement. Let us make here THREE TABERNACLES, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias (John the Baptist).
THE PASCHAL LAMB COMPARED TO JESUS CHRIST- ARROW NO. 4 (See chart on page 51)
The slaying and eating of the Paschal Lamb at the Feast of the Passover, instituted in Egypt, as recorded in the l2th chapter of Exodus, whereas in speaking of the Body and Blood, we will refer to Exodus 12:22,23, as a type of Jesus Christ, The True Lamb of God, that fulfilled this type by eating the Memorial of the original Passover with His Disciples (see Matt. 26:26-28 and I Cor. 11 :23-25). Jesus Himself, being our Passover (see I Cor.5:7), was crucified and hung on the Cross as experienced or witnessed by John, before he was on the Isle of Patmos, and again revealed to him in Rev. 11:8.
Moses _ "And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you" (Ex, 12:22-23).
John - “And their dead bodies shall lie in the Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified" (Rev. 11:8).
Moses - Before the Migration of the Israelites from Egypt, they were instructed by Moses at the Command of God to slay the Paschal Lamb in the evening, without breaking any of his bones (see Ex. 12:46), and with a bunch of hyssop, dipped in the Blood of the Lamb in the bason, they must strike the lintel and two side posts of the door. The Lord passed through that night and when He saw the Blood He passed over.
John - John, in the Vision, looking at this event as well as at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, of which the slaying and eating of the Passover in Egypt was a figure, and seeing the nails in the hands and feet of Jesus and the crown of thorns upon His head, and the soldier piercing Him in the side, which produced Blood in like places as it was placed on the lintel, two side posts and in the bason, as the Paschal Lamb was eaten the night of the Passover, likewise, it turned dark (night) from the 6th to the 9th hour, when Jesus was on the cross.
ARROW NO. 5 COMPARED TO ARROW NO. 5A (See chart on page 52)
The experience of Moses receiving the Law from God to be placed in the Ark of the Covenant in the Tabernacle, where God dwelt among the Children of Israel recorded in Ex. 25:8-9, as compared to the Spirit of God (New Covenant) written in the Heart and Mind in the Tabernacle of our bodies as revealed to the Apostle John in the 2lst chapter of Revelation.
Moses 5 - And let them (the Children of Israel) make me a sanctuary (Tabernacle); that I may dwell among them. According to all that I shew thee, after the Pattern of the Tabernacle, and the Pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it" (Ex.25:8-9).
John 5A- "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: forthe first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them and they shall be his people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God" (Rev. 21:1-3).
Moses-5-After the Children of Israel had passed through the Red Sea and later entered the Wilderness of Sinai, and at the end of forty days and nights in which Moses was in Mount Sinai, the Lord gave him the FIRST TABLES of Stone containing the LAW, written with the finger of God. Moses descending the Mount with the LAW, and seeing Israel's disobedience of the previously spoken Words of the Law. which was done by the Israelites building and worshipping the golden calf, waxed hot, threw down the Tables of Stone and broke them. Thereafter. Moses was again called up into the Mount and he received the SECOND TABLES of Stone with the Law of Commandments written thereon, after descending the Mount, and because of the brightness of his countenance from having been in the Presence of God (by Vision), he put a vail over his face, until he had finished speaking all the Words of the Lord to the Children of Israel (see Ex.34:29-33 and also 2 Cor. 3:10-18). He had been given instructions by the Lord God to require the Israelites to build a Physical Tabernacle in the Wilderness, fashioned exactly like the Intangible Tabernacle, which he had seen in the Vision, while he was within the Cloud atop Mount Sinai. The LAW which had been given to him was to be placed inside of the Ark of the Covenant within the Most Holy Place, where the Presence of God was to abide in the Cloud between the wings of the Cherubims above the Mercy Seat in the Tabernacle, which thereafter was pitched in the Wilderness of Sinai, according to the Divine Specifications of God (see Ex. 34th chapter; Ex. 39.42 and Heb. 9:2-5).
John-5A-In the 2lst chapter of Revelation, John recorded this incident, which also pertains to the New Heaven and Earth. The FIRST HEAVEN and the FIRST EARTH which John saw pass away in the experiences of the Israelites passage through the Red Sea from Egypt, was a type of the world, death, darkness and ignorance; while the Israelite is burial in the Red Sea, and passage into the Wilderness of Sinai was a figure of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. And John in the Vision, seeing the true meaning of Moses descending the Mount with the SECOND TABLES of Stone in his hand, containing the LAW (Commandments), which was to be placed within the Ark of the Covenant in the Tabernacle, which is a symbol of man's body, recognized that the SECOND TABLES of Stone contained the LAW, which signified that the NEW COVENANT would be, and was, placed in the Heart and Mind of man, (not with pen and ink, but with the Spirit of the living God - see 2 Cor.3:3; Heb. 8:10), AFTER the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ (see Heb. 9:17), in fact this event began to take place on the Day of Pentecost (see Acts 2:1-4), as it is recorded in Jer. 31:31-33,
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a NEW COI/ENANT with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my Covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people."
John in the Vision on the Isle of Patmos also recognized that Moses had within his mind the specifications for the building of the Tabernacle, when he descended the Mount, which was later pitched by the men of Israel in the Wilderness or the Holy Place of the Greater and More Perfect Tabernacle (the Universe). Wherefore, John, after seeing the Vision, wrote "Behold the Tabernacle of GOD IS WITH MEN" (Rev. 21:1-4).
John, in the Vision also knew that the body of Israelites, who had received the Law, particularly those who had been born in the Wilderness, is compared to those who had received, or were born of the Holy Ghost in this Present Dispensation of Grace, is New Jerusalem, or the bride of Christ, which is the Church, Congregation, or General Assembly of God, which includes all that are in Heaven (see Rev. 14:4-5 and also Heb. 12:22-23). He also knew that God, who had power to transform Himself, in part, into the Incorporeal Body of the Messiah or Christ, whom Moses, in the Wilderness and the Prophets of Israel saw in Visions, communicated with, and later wrote of (see Deut. 18:15 and compare with John 1:45).
It is also recorded by the Apostle John, that while He (the Messiah) was in the flesh He spoke thusly: "I am the true vine and my Father is the husbandman" (John 15:1). He also stated that: "Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me" (John 14:11). Therefore, Israel in the Wilderness was typical of this "bride" which was being better prepared for the services of God, her husband (see Isa. 54:5).
John understood the spiritual meaning of the Israelites' experiences in the Wilderness and also in Canaan Land, before he arrived on the Isle of Patmos. He knew that their experiences in the present earth state were but a type and shadow of the NEW HEAVEN and EARTH which is eternal and is spiritually discerned; it is Inconceivable and Intangible except it be revealed by the Spirit of God in man (see I Cor. 2:10:11).
John, who also had the HOLY GHOST as did the Apostle Paul, understood the meaning of Paul's statement in 2 Cor. 5:17; "If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away, (that is, Ceremonial Laws and Carnal Ordinances, instituted under the Mosaic Law, physical Tabernacles and Temples of boards, pillars and posts, mortar, stone and wood overlaid with gold, etc., also the old heaven and earth itself will be rolled up as a scroll and passed away see Isa. 34:4; 2 Pet. 3:12 and Rev. 6:14), behold, all things are become new" (that is, spiritual, through the sacrificial Body and Blood of Jesus Christ).
The Tabernacle in the Wilderness where God dwelled" and wherein the Tables of Stone containing the Law was placed, is symbolical to the Body of Man, wherein the Holy Ghost dwells, having the Law of the Spirit of Life written in his Heart and Mind (see Rom.8:2; Jer. 31:31-34; Heb. 10: 16 and 2 Cor. 3:3). This condition or state began on the Day of Pentecost and will prevail until the taking off of the mortal body of man (being pre-figured by moving the furnishings of the Tabernacle into the interior of the Temple-see I Kings 8:1-9), leaving the immortal body, which has been formed by the Holy Ghost (see Gal. 4:I9), being present and recognized by the Spirit of God within man as the Incorporeal Form (see Phil. 3:20-21 and Col. 1:14-15), which will be manifested to those NOT HAVING THE SPIRIT WHEN CHRIST IS REVEALED FROM HEAVEN.
Wherefore, as the Apostle Paul said in 2 Cor. 5:1, "If our earthly house of this Tabernacle were dissolved we have a building of God, and house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens."

(Explanatory Note: The following quotations are not fully illustrated in the photograph, but are shown in the illustration).
The instructions of the Lord to Moses and Aaron was to Command the Children of Israel to pitch by their own standards (or banners, which were four in number, three tribes represented on each banner) with the ensign of their father's house, on each of the four sides of the Tabernacle. This is compared to the Revelation shown to John in his Vision on the Isle of Patmos of the four beasts that surrounded the Throne of God. Moses-5-Refer to Numbers 2nd Chapter.
“Then the tabernacle of the congregation shall set forward with the camp of the Levites in the midst of the camp: as they encamp: so shall they set forward, every man in his place by their standards" (Num. 2:17).
Judah was on the East side with Issachar and Zebulun. Ruben was on the South side with Simeon and Gad. Ephraim was on the West side with Manasseh and Benjamin. Dan was on the North side with Asher and Naphtali.
John-5-We quote Rev. 4:6-8, "And before the throne there was a sea of glass (brazen laver) like unto crystal and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a LION, and the second beastlike a CALF, and the third beast had a face as a MAN,and the fourth beast was like a flying EAGLE. And the four beasts had each of them SIX WINGS about him and they were full of eyes within; and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come."
Moses-5-Each of the twelve sons of Jacob (Israel) with their families in their generations comprised the assembly or the congregation of Israel. They formed the twelve tribes, under the twelve heads which composed the great army of the Lord. There were four standards with ensigns under which the twelve tribes were divided, having three tribes to each standard encamped around the Tabernacle in the Wilderness. The camp of the Levites, (located as shown in the diagram on page 47) who officiated within the Tabernacle, were ordained to carry out the Divine Services of the Lord (see Num. 2nd chapter). Thus, according to the Comcandment of the Lord to Moses, the Israelites encamped in the Wilderness with their respective ensigns, surrounding the Throne of God.
John-5A-The four beasts in John's Vision are representative of the FOUR HEAD TRIBES and the FOUR STANDARDS of the Children of Israel. These FOUR BEASTS which John saw with the SIX WINGS each, making a total of twenty four (24) wings, are compared to the four (4) standards, of three tribes to each standard, having two (2) wings each, making a total of eight (8) wings surrounding the Tabernacle on four (4) sides, plus Moses, the Prophet, representing the Law with two (2) wings; and Aaron representing the Priesthood with two (2) wings, both of which equaled four (4) wings, included with the 8 wings of the 4 beasts of the other ensigns of the 12 tribes would make a total of 12 wings altogether. Whereas, the 12 tribes with their respective heads of physical Israel under the Dispensation of the Law and the 12 Apostles of Spiritual Israel, under the Dispensation of Grace, both of which would make a grand total of 24 wings, or 24 Elders, represented by the 4 beasts with 6 wings each, which John saw around the Throne of God (see Rev. 4:4-8).
As there were twelve orders of the Angelic Host in the Angelic Creation, likewise, there are twelve orders in the physical creation.
The Post-diluvian Age contained the twelve tribes and the Present Age contained the twelve Apostles. Their eyes before and behind represent their visibility and presence throughout the Ages from Alpha to Omega.
As regarding the appearances of the 4 beasts which John saw, recall to mind that each of the 4 beasts are figurative of Jesus Christ, the fulness of the Godhead bodily (see Col. 2:9) in this respect, He was the LION of the tribe of Judah (see Gen. 49:9-10; Rev. 5:5); He was the RAM which was caught in the thickets, which Abraham was told to use as a substitute for the sacrifice of Isaac to the Lord (see Gen. 22:13); He was a MAN, born of a woman (see Gal. 4:4) and came in the likeness of sinful flesh (see Rom. 8:3) and, "As an EAGLE stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange God with him" (Deut. 32:11-12).

The significance of the Vision revealed to John on the Isle of Patmos of the TREE OF LIFE ON EACH SIDE OF THE RIVER was typified by the Divine Pattern of the Tabernacle with it's Priesthood and ceremonies given to Moses by the Lord God in the Wilderness of Sinai, situated on one side of the Jordan River, and the Promise Land of Canaan on both sides of the Jordan River, inherited by the Israelites with the Temple built by King Solomon. See Chart, page 53.
Moses-6- "Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this Jordan. But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see" (Deut.3:27-28).
John-6A- "And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God, and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and ON EITHER SIDE OF THE RIVER, WAS THERE THE TREE OF LIFE, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it: and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angels to shew unto his servents the things which must shortly be done. Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book" (Rev. 22: 1-7).
Moses-6-Moses in his experience, communication and guidance by the Lord God, led the Children of Israel from Egypt through the Red Sea into the Wilderness of Shur, Sin, Rephidim, Sinai, and finally to the Land of Moab, a place somewhere near the region of Mt. Nebo (see Ex. 15:22; 16:1; 17:1; 19-1 and Deut. 1:5,9,18-see also Num. the 33rd chapter for the complete journey of the Israelites from Egypt). It was here that Moses was permitted to view the Promise Land (see Deut. 32:49), with 40 years of experience and 120 years old that God would not allow him to continue to lead Israel over the Jordan River, but commissioned Joshua in Moses" stead. Moses retired by going up into Mt. Nebo where he died (see Deut. 34:5). Wherefore, God buried him in Mt. Nebo in the Land of Moab over against Bethpeor (see Deut. 34:4-6) and Joshua (a type of Jesus) led the Israelites through the (SECOND VAIL) River Jordan into Canaan Land (see Deut. 34: 1-9 and also Joshua 3:1-17), wherein Solomon later built the Temple (see I Kings 6:1,38).
John-6A-John in his experiences with Jesus, before and 40 days after His crucifixion, burial, resurrection and ascension, (which was a passing through the SECOND VAIL, or the apparent visibility of His flesh into Heaven itself), was typified by Joshua passing through the Divided waters of the River Jordan or SECOND VAIL into the Promise Land of Canaan, which Salem or Jerusalem was the capital, wherein the Temple of the Lord had not been constructed at that time, signifying as revealed to John in Rev. 21:22, "And I saw no Temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and, the Lamb are the Temple of it."

The Number Seven (7) Denotes Perfection
There are seven (7) steps, dimensions or planes often referred to as Heavens, whereas there are but three (3) Heavens (see 2 Cor. 12:1-4) which leads to Perfection. The seven steps, dimensions or planes are revealed in the Pattern of the Tabernacle, and in the Greater and More Perfect Tabernacle, the Universe (called the Migratory Pattern) which was pitched by the Lord God and not the man, Moses (Heb. 8:2). "Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto PERFECTION; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God. Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of Eternal Judgment" (Heb. 6 :1,2).
The seventh plane is represented in the Migratory Pattern by the Israelites entering Caanan or the Promised Land, their final earthly inheritance. and is compared to the Most Holy Place in the Tabernacle, a type of Heaven and was fulfilled by Jesus Christ, who entered not into the Holy Places made with hands, but into Heaven itself (Joshua 14:1-3, Ex. 26:34; Heb. 6:19-20 and Heb. 9:24)
The sixth plane is represented in the Migratory Pattern By the parting of the River Jordan forming the SECOND VAIL between the Wilderness of Sinai and Canaan Land. and is compared to the dividing Vail of Blue, Purple and Scarlet which hung between the Sanctuary and Most Holy Place in the Tabernacle and was fulfilled by Jesus Christ when He took off the Vail of His flesh and ascended into Heaven (Joshua 3:1-17: Ex. 26:31-34 and Heb. 10:20).
The fifth plan is represented in the Migratory Pattern By the Wilderness of Sinai where Israel received the Law and Tabernacle with its ceremonies, with the Presence of God among them, and is compared to the Sanctuary of the Tabernacle with its furniture for ceremonial purposes, overlaid with gold and fulfilled by Jesus. who said, I am the Light of the world, the Bread of Life and Intercessor (Ex. 19:1-3; Ex. 24:-12-14; Ex. 30:45-46; John 8:12; John 6:35; John 17th chapter).
The fourth plane is represented in the Migratory Pattern by the parting of the Waters of the Red Sea forming an entrance into the Wilderness, and is compared to the FIRST VAIL or DOOR of the Tabernacle, and was fulfilled by Jesus Christ, who said, I am the DOOR, by me if any man enter he shall be saved (Ex. 14:21; Ex. 36:37; John 10:7) .
The third plane is represented in the Migratory Pattern By the Baptism of the Israelites in the Cloud and in the Sea as they fled from the Egyptians, and is compared To the Brazen Laver in the Court of the Tabernacle for washing and cleansing purposes and fulfilled by Jesus by washing the disciples feet (Ex. 13:21; Ex. 14:15-16; Ex. 30:18-21 and John 13:4-5).
The second plane is represented in the Migratory Pattern by the slaying and eating of the Paschal Lamb in preparedness to leave out of Egypt, and is compared to the Sacrifice of Sin offering on the Altar in the Outer Court of the Tabernacle, and was fulfilled by the prepared body of Jesus, the Passover Lamb, slain for the Sins of the world (Ex. 12:1-12; Ex. 20:24 and I Cor. 5:7).
The first plane is represented in the Migratory Pattern By the DOOR or entrance into the houses of the Israelites, on which the Blood of the Lamb was put on the lintel and two side posts and is compared to the GATE or entrance into the Tabernacle, and was fulfilled by Jesus when He said, enter in at the STRAIT GATE (Gen. 12:22; Ex. 40:8; Ex. 28:16 and Matt. 7:13).
The Number Seven in Jewish Theology Denotes Perfection
The Jews were commanded of God to observe Seven (7) events which ended in a week of days, week of weeks, week of years, week of week of years, week of millenniums, and a week of Ages which are as follows:
1. There are Seven (7) days in a week of days which ends with a Sabbath Day (Saturday) Ex. 20:8-11; Lev. 23.3.
2. There are Seven (7) Weeks in a week of Weeks which ends with the Feast of Pentecost (Lev. 23: 9-14 and Lev.15:22).
3. There are Seven (7) months in a week of months which ends with a Feast of Tabernacles (Lev. 23:1-44).
4.There are Seven (7) years in a week of years which ends with a Sabbath Year (Ex. 21:2 and Lev. 25: 1-7).
5. There are a week of weeks of Years which ends with a Year of Jubilee (Lev. 25:8-17).
6. There are Seven (7) millenniums in a week of Millenniums which ends with a Sabbath of Immortality (2 Pet. 3:8 and Psa. 90:4).
7. There are Seven (7) Ages in a WEEK of Ages which ends with a completion of the Purpose of God before ushering in a new order of things, as God is Eternal ( Eph. 2:7) .
There are other references of Seven such as:
Seven days of Creation (Gen. 2:2; Ex. 20:11)
Seven Priests with seven trumpets (Jos. 6:4).
Seven Branched Candlestick (Ex. 25:31-38; Rev. 1:12).
Solomon's Temple was seven years in building (1 Kings 6:38)
The Blood was sprinkled seven times before the Mercy Seat (Lev. 4:6)
There were seven Feasts of Jehovah which lasted seven days each (Lev. 23:1-44)
The book of Revelation was addressed to the seven churches (Rev. 1:4)
There are Seven Spirits before the Throne of God (Rev. 1:4; Rev. 5:6)
Seven Stars (Rev.1l:16; 2:1; 3:1 and Rev. 1:20)
Seven Seals (Rev. 5:1)
Seven Angels (Rev. 15:1-6)
Seven Trumpets (Rev. 8:2)
Seven Vials (Rev. 21:9)
Seven Heads (Rev. 17:3)
Seven Crowns (Rev. 12:3)
Seven Thunders (Rev. 10:3)
Seven Eyes (Rev. 5:6)
There are other references to Seven (7) denoting Perfection.
The Hundred and Forty and Four Thousand
God promised Abraham while he was in Canaan Land that He would make his Seed as the dust of the earth; so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered (see Gen. 13:16). And He further showed Abraham in a vision (or dream) how that He would send his posterity down into a strange land (Egypt) where they would be held in bondage for awhile and then come out with great substance and inherit Canaan Land (see Gen. 15:12-14; Acts 7:6-7). According to God's word, Abraham's posterity did go down in Egypt, about 70 souls, and were in bondage for about 400 years and God multiplied them exceedingly so that at the end of the 430 years (see Ex. 12:40) some 600,000 of them left Egypt under God's and Moses' guidance (see Ex. 38:25-27 also Num. 1: 46-49).
When this number (600,000 reached the Wilderness of Sinai, and God gave them the Commandments from atop Mount Sinai, and thereafter, despite the perils of deadly serpents, wild beasts, manifold hazards, and disobedience to God which resulted in death to all of them but two (Caleb and Joshua), God had continued to multiply them, for in a short space of 40 years, notwithstanding the high death rate, 144,000 of them were born in the Wilderness (typifying the new birth – see John 3:3-6) and went over the River Jordan into Canaan Land under the leadership of Joshua. To further point up the rapid birth rate with which they multiplied, if one considers that 40 years in our time is about 1 hour in God’s eyesight, (see Psa. 90:4 and 2 Pet. 3:8 – where a thousand years IS AS one day in God's time) then one sees that in the short space of *1440 minutes, (or 1 day in God's eyesight, for the Israelites in the Wilderness, under the burning Cloud were NEVER IN THE "DARK", which is as a day - Rev.2I:25) God multiplied the Israelites an hundred fold to 144,000 of them that were still alive and reached Mount Sion (see Heb. 12:22-24), (Read the parable of the sower, where the SEED that fell on good ground brought forth a HUNDRED FOLD - Matt. 13:8.23; Mark 4:8,20).
1440 minutes: l day
24 hours (1 day) = 1000 Years
1 hour = 41 years
God said, after Moses had numbered Israel in the Wilderness (see Ex. 30:12-13) that Israel was not to be numbered again, without taking from them a ransom of half (1/2) shekel for the Sanctuary from each person because God had promised Abraham that he would multiply his seed as the sands of the sea and as the stars of heaven. Joshua in taking command to lead the Israelites, did not number them before, nor after they crossed the River Jordan, consequently no one knew the number of them that were born in the Wilderness and had passed over the River Jordan from the Wilderness into Canaan Land and had finally reached Mount Zion. until John in his vision on the Isle of Patmos in A.D. 96 heard the number of them called, an hundred and forty-four thousand, that had been sealed, twelve thousand from each of the twelve tribes of Israel (see Rev. 7:4).
Please take cognizance at this particular point of the perfect working and carrying out of God's Purpose according to His Infallible Spirit Law that the Israelites could not go over into the Promised Land until the last one of each of the Twelve Tribes to make twelve thousand apiece had been born in the Wilderness!! (This passing through the River Jordan in the Greater and More Perfect, Tabernacle is allegorical to the passing through the Second Vail in the Tabernacle - see Heb. 9:I1).
Still the Promise of God to Abraham to multiply his seed exceedingly did not stop with the prolific birth rate in Egypt and the Wilderness, for after John had heard the number of the Tribes of Israel called, while he yet looked he saw a great multitude which no man could number of all nations, kindreds, and people and tongues dressed in white robes and with palms in their hand. These were they who have washed their robes and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb (see Rev. 7:9-14). This countless number which John saw in his vision fulfilled God's Promise to Abraham that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed be numbered and definitely points up the abundant fertility of Jerusalem above, the Mother of us all, spiritually so (see Gal.4:26).
Is There Life After Death?
According to the "FOREKNOWLEDGE and PURPOSE OF GOD" as revealed by the Scriptures and the Pattern, the answer to the question posed in the above caption is YES, there IS LIFE AFTER DEATH, ETERNAL LIFE. Before we could even do justice to the discussion of LIFE after DEATH, we first MUST understand the real meaning of what Mortal Life and Death and Immortal or Eternal Life actually IS. For without a true Knowledge and understanding of what these words - Mortal Life and Death and Immortal or Eternal Life is, it is impossible for us to arrive at a reconcilable or agreeable conclusion.
For example, Job believed in the Promise of Immortal Life after Mortal Life and Death, accomplished by the coming of the Messiah, for he said, "For I know that my REDEEMER LIVETH, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me" (Job 19:25-27, see and compare Ezek. 37:1-10: Matt. 27:52-54; Heb. 11:39,40 and Heb. 12:1,2,22-24. Jesus also said unto Martha concerning Life and Death “I AM THE RESURRECTION, and THE LIFE: he that believeth in me, though he were DEAD, Yet shall he LIVE: And whosoever LIVETH and believeth in me SHALL NEVER DIE. Believest thou this?" (John 11:25,26). The Apostle Paul speaks to the Ephesians of being Spiritually Dead (asleep) while Mortally Alive, saying “Awake, thou that sleepest, and arise from the DEAD, and Christ shall give thee Light" (Eph. 5:14). Again Paul said, "But she that LIVETH in pleasure IS DEAD while she LIVETH” (1 Tim. 5:6).
The true answer to the question, “IS THERE LIVE AFTER DEATH” has confused countless numbers of intelligent people for many centuries, not only in the past, but also right up to this present time. We read of the first mention in the Bible of the word Death in the Command of God to Adam in Genesis 2:16.17. which reads as follows: "And THE LORD COMMANDED THE MAN, SAYING OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN THOU MAYEST FREELY EAT: BUT OF THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, THOU SHALT NOT EAT OF IT: FOR IN ‘THE DAY' THAT THOU EATEST THEREOF THOU SHALT SURELY DIE." But the Estoteric Secret regarding LIFE after DEATH was hidden in God, and NOT DISCLOSED to the first man Adam. God formed Adam’s body from the ground, (as shown in the Outer Court, page 31, Plates 11 and 12) and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, (see also John 20:22) making him a Living Soul, and placed him in the Holy Place in the Garden to dress and keep it. Wherein, thereafter God caused Adam to fall into a "Deep Sleep", equivilent to Death which he was ignorant of, not knowing what Life or Death was by practical experience, and the woman Eve was formed from a rib taken from Adam’s body and God presented her to him as his wife or bride (see Gen. 2:21-24 and also Plates 11 and 12).
It was in the Garden that God EXALTED or gave them power or dominion (see Most Holy Place, Plate 12, page 31) over the LIVING EARTHLY CREATURES, without explaining the meaning of Life and Death or Mortality and Immortality.
Even though God did create the earthly Adam and Eve, Holy in body and INNOCENT IN CONSCIENCE or SOUL and gave them dominion over the Created Creatures of the earth plane (see Gen. 1:28), He DID NOT TELL them that they or any of the rest of the physical Creation had been created "Immortal" or beyond the possibility of DEATH. Because it is apparent from the spoken words of the Lord, that Adam's life span DEPENDED upon his OBEDIENCE to the Commandment of the Lord, as we have previously stated. However, many theologians have assumed that Adam was created Immortal and would have lived forever, if he had not partaken of the fruit of the TREE OF KNOWLEDGE of GOOD and EVIL. They further assume that AFTER Adam sinned or transgressed the Commandment of God, then God had to begin to devise a Plan for his Redemption and Restoration.
But this is not the case in either instance, for IT IS WRITTEN that God instructed Moses to slay the Paschal Lamb, (see Migratory Pattern, Plate 13, page 31) "Before" he and the children of Israel left Egypt, which was “BEFORE" Moses HEARD and SAW the Vision of the whole Earthly Creation (by the Pattern of the Tabernacle, Plate No. 1, page 6I) which took place in the Wilderness of Sinai, (see Chart, Series No. 1 on page 53) which also proves beyond a doubt that God "Foreknew" what Adam and Eve would do, and the Sacrificial Lamb of God was prepared "Before" He created them. Therefore, the provision and Sacrifice for Adam's Redemption was prepared from the Foundation of the world, as verified by the Prophet Isaiah and later fulfilled by the Lamb of God (see John 1:29,36) or Jesus Christ, and then confirmed by John on the Isle of Patmos (see Rev. 13:8; Rev. 17:8 and also Matt. 25: 34 and Eph. 1 :4-12).
To point out the verification by Isaiah, it is written in the following words: "Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, DECLARING THE END FROM THE BEGINNING, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, MY COUNSEL SHALL STAND, and I WILL DO ALL MY PLEASURE: Calling a ravenous bird from the east, 'THE MAN' that executeth My Counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have PURPOSED IT, I WILL ALSO DO IT" (Isa. 46:9-11, see also Eph. 1:5-11).
The Apostle Paul's comment on this particular phase of our contention reads as follows: "FOR THE CREATURE WAS MADE SUBJECT TO VANITY, NOT WILLINGLY, BUT BY REASON OF HIM WHO HATH SUBJECTED THE SAME IN HOPE, Because THE CREATURE itself also SHALL BE DELIVERED from THE BONDAGE OF CORRUPTION INTO THE GLORIOUS LIBERTY OF THE CHILDREN OF GOD" (Rom. 8 :20,21).
Let us stop here and examine (by the Pattern, Plate No. 1, page 61 some of the events which occurred after Adam was placed in the Garden of Eden. Speaking of the Serpent, Eve and Adam in the Garden of Eden, we are told by Moses in the 3rd chapter of Genesis, "NOW THE SERPENT (which was cast out of Heaven - see Rev. 12:9; Rev. 20:2; Ezek 28:13,14 and Isa 14:12 and see also Plate No. 14, page 61) WAS MORE SUBTIL THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may EAT of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not EAT of it, neither shall ye TOUCH it, lest ye DIE. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in THE DAY ye EAT thereof, then your eyes shall be opened and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did. EAT, and. gave also unto her husband with her; and,he did EAT" (Gen. 3:1-6).
The body of the first man Adam was created from the ground, that is, in the Outer Court, (see Plate 11, page 31 also Gen. 2:7 and I Cor. I5:47) which means that God "Foreknew" that Adam, because of his instinctive love, wherewith he was created, WOULD SACRIFICE his life for his wife, Eve, by partaking of the forbidden fruit after he was placed in the Garden of Eden. (Thus, Adam, unconscious of being a figure of Him that was to come, showed by his actions that Jesus, who was made to be Sin, WOULD SACRIFICE His Life for us, His Bride - see Eph. 5:25-33). The woman, Eve, being formed from the rib, which was in the allegorical Holy Place of the physical body of Adam, was therefore made subject to vanity when she was taken out of Adam in the Garden of Eden. Adam was delegated the DIVINE AUTHORITY to rule over the earthly, created creatures, before the woman was formed from the rib taken from his body. This authority was allegorical to the rulership of God, in the Most Holy Place (see Gen. 1:28 and Plate No. 1, page 61). Eve, the earthly creature, like the Serpent or the Heavenly creature, was created IN VANITY, and because of their beauty and glory, wherewith they both were created, and by the Serpent’s lie, caused her to be DECEIVED. Therefore, she was in the transgression (see 1 Tim. 2:14).
Nevertheless, the first man, Adam, because of his instinctive Love for his offspring or bride (see John 3:16) did partake of the fruit of the tree of KNOWLEDGE of GOOD and EVIL and became guilty before God, and DIED INSTANTANEOUSLY in HIS CONSCIENCE or SOUL the SAME SOLAR DAY in which he partook of the fruit. Likewise, the second Adam, Christ, being sacrificed on the cross in A.D. 33 for His Offspring or Bride (the Church) that the PURPOSE OF GOD might be fulfilled (see Eph. 1:10), partook of death to restore the woman BACK unto himself, as prefigured by Eve being clothed in and taken from Adam, and John said in Rev. 12:1, "There appeared a great wonder in Heaven; a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars." After Adam had sinned in the Garden of Eden, God waited until the COOL OF THE DAY, as the SUN in the sky was going down, casting the shadow of DARKNESS over the face of the earth, and God sent forth the Angel with a FLAMING sword (see Golden Candlestick in Holy Place, Plate No. 1, page 61) and drove Adam out of the Garden (see Holy Place and Outer Court in Plate No. 15, page 61), to till the soil in the sweat of his face until he returned to the ground (see Gen. 3:19; Ex. 30:18-21, also see Brazen Lava and Brazen Altar in Outer Court, Plate No. 1, page 61). Adam did eat bread by the SWEAT OF HIS FACE until he died a PHYSICAL DEATH and returned to the ground from whence he was taken (see Gen. 3:19) at the age of 930 years (see Gen. 5:5). Thus, the total life span of Adam was 70 years short of the 1000 year day with the Lord (see 2 Pet.3:8 and Psa. 90:4).
Likewise Jesus, in fulfillment of His work of Redemption, DID EAT BREAD at the Last Supper, washed the disciples feet, sang a hymn and went out. From thence, He PASSED OVER the Brook Cedron and entered the "Garden of Gessemane" where he began to pray (see John 13:4,5, John 18th chapter and compare with the Outer Court and Holy Place of Plate No. I and Plate No. 15, page 61), and great drops of SWEAT LIKE BLOOD dropped from His brow (see Luke 22:44), when He was betrayed by Judas' band and was finally offered up, went to the GROUND, or was buried in Joseph's New Tomb (see Matt. 27:59,60).
Speaking of the appointment of Death caused by the Adamic Transgression, Solomon said in Ecclesiastes 3:20, "All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again." The Apostle Paul, also looking at the same appointment of Death, said in Romans 5: 12-14, "Wherefore, as by ONE MAN Sin entered into the World, and Death by Sin: and so Death passed UPON ALL MEN, for that all have Sinned: for until the Law Sin was in the world: but Sin is not imputed where there is no Law. Nevertheless, Death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not Sinned after the SIMILITUDE of Adam's transgression, WHO IS THE FIGURE OF HIM (Immanuel, the Messiah) THAT WAS TO COME". Isaiah, speaking of HIM THAT WAS TO COME, said in Isa. 7:14, "Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold, a Virgin shall conceive, and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel (see Most Holy Place in Plate No. 27 and compare with the Pattern, Plate No. 1, below.
In Plate No. 27 in the Most Holy Place is shown the Archangel Gabriel, one of the Cherubims of Glory whose wings overshadowed the Mercy Seat, which is the Throne of God upon the Ark of the Covenant, wherein the Law, engraved in Tables of Stone was laid (see Plate No. 1, page 61. Therefore, comparing Plate No. 27 with the Pattern, Plate No. 1, the Archangel Gabriel is shown making the announcement of the "Divine Conception" to the Virgin Mary, who also is shown being OVERSHADOWED by the Holy Ghost (see Luke l:26-35); her body being the physical Arkwherein the Word (being made flesh) was laid, Thereafter, the Word was transmuted into (see John 1:14), prophetically called Immanuel, pressed through the loins (or second Vail) of the Virgin Mary into the Holy Place, Bethlehem of Judae (see Matt. 2:1) and she became the Mother of Jesus as shown in the center of Plate No. 27, below.
We have shown, according to the Purpose and Pattern, that the first man, Adam was the ONLY earthly created Son of God (see Luke 3:38 and Gen. 5:1,2), whom God formed from the Virgin Mother Earth and gave him Universal dominion over all the rest of the living creatures of the Earth Plane (see Gen. 1:26), which dominion except over his wife (Gen. 3:16) Adam lost by his transgression and was cast out of the Garden of Eden. Therefore, we can see why, in the course of time, God revealed to Moses and influenced him to write in Deut. 18:15 these words, concerning the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD, "The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me: unto him ye shall hearken." The birth of the Messiah, the ONLY begotten Son of God, the nullification of death. the restoration and re-establishment of dominion and a Kingdom, was confirmed by the rest of the Prophets (see Dan. 2:44 and Dan. 9:24-26). For example, Isaiah confirmed the prediction of Moses by saying, "For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulders: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace" (Isa . 9:6).
Thus. the Apostle Paul said the FIRST ADAM WAS A FIGURE OF THE SECOND ADAM (see Rom. 5:14 and I Cor. 15:21,22,45), the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD, who was born of the Virgin Mary (according to the Pattern) and who, after His earthly Ministry, crucifixion and burial, had overcome DEATH by His Resurrection (as shown in the Holy Place or in the center of Plate No. 31, page 61), was given dominion over all principality and power (see Matt. 28:18 and Col.2:10) as shown in the Most Holy Place or in the top of Plate No.31, page 61). Also it is shown in the Holy Place, that AFTER the Resurrection of Christ, the Vail of the Temple was rent and many of the Saints which slept in the dust of the earth, arose and went into the Holy City (Jerusalem) and appeared unto many (see Matt. 27:51-53).
Wherefore, the RESURRECTION IS STILL GOING ON, meaning each person who receives the Holy Ghost in his heart, (as shown in the Holy Place in Plate No. 32. page 61) throughout this Present Age HAS BEEN RESURRECTED in his CONSCIENCE or SOUL FROM THE DEAD. This is in harmony with what Jesus said in John 11:25,26, "I AM THE RESURRECTION, and THE LIFE: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die." This also means that those who DO RECEIVE THE HOLY GHOST or CHRIST, (that is, having Christ, a Quickening Spirit in his heart or mind) who ONLY hath "IMMORTALITY" dwelling in the Light. which no (flesh and blood) can approach unto (see I Tim. 6:16).
This is confirmed by John in Rev. 6:9-12 which reads thusly: "I saw under the Altar (see the Altar in Holy Place. Plate No.1. page 61. THE SOULS of them that were slain for the Word of God, and for the Testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that DWELL ON THE EARTH? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, (see middle of Plate No. 38, page 61) until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled" (see also I Pet. 1:4).
Paul in speaking of the creature being delivered from the bondage of corruption into the Glorious Liberty of the children of God, said, "For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain TOGETHER until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the FIRSTFRUITS OF THE SPIRIT, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit. THE REDEMPTION OF OUR BODY" (Rom. 8:22,23, see also Col. 3:1-3; Eph. 4:30 and Plate No. 38, below).
Paul speaking of the Resurrection said, "SO ALSO IS THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD. It is shown in CORRUPTION; it is RAISED IN INCORRUPTION: It is sown in DISHONOUR; it is RAISED IN GLORY: It is sown in WEAKNESS; it is RAISED IN POWER: It is sown a NATURAL BODY; it is RAISED A SPIRITUAL BODY. There is a NATURAL BODY, and there is a SPIRITUAL BODY. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a Quickening Spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is OF THE EARTH, EARTHY: the second man is the LORD FROM HEAVEN. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the IMAGE OF THE EARTHY. we shall also bear the IMAGE OF THE HEAVENLY. Now this I say, brethren, that FLESH and BLOOD CANNOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD; neither doth CORRUPTION INHERIT INCORRUPTION. Behold, I SHEW YOU A MYSTERY; We shall not all SLEEP, but WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the DEAD SHALL BE RAISED INCORRUPTABLE, and WE SHALL BE CHANGED. For this CORRUPTIBLE must put on INCORRUPTION, and thisMORTAL MUST PUT ON IMMORTALITY. So when this CORRUPTIBLE SHALL HAVE PUT ON INCORRUPTION, and this MORTAL SHALL HAVE PUT ON IMMORTALITY, then shall BE BROUGHT TO PASS the saying that is written, DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP IN VICTORY." (I Cor. 15:42-54).
The first man, Adam DIED in his CONSCIENCE or SOUL first, and 930 years later this was manifested by the death of his physical body and its return to the ground. Therefore man must be REGENERATED in his conscience or soul first and the manifestation of his physical REGENERATION will take place later. This REDEMPTION or CHANGE or "GLORIFICATION" of the body positively does not take place in individuals, one at a time or at different intervals, as claimed by some so-called Christians, but as the Apostle Paul says, we shall ALL be CHANGED or GLORIFIED TOGETHER (1 Cor. 15:52 and Rom. 8:22,23). Furthermore, this Physical Regeneration will not be in the likeness of the first Adam, who was earthy, but in the likeness of the second Adam, who is the Lord from Heaven, who shall CHANGE our vile bodies like unto His GLORIFIED BODY (see Phil. 3:21), and for which He has already paid the price (see Acts 20:28 and I Cor. 6:20).
That is, since Jesus has already shed His Blood and risen from the Dead, we are NOW standing in the Holy Place, as Jesus said in Matt. 24:15, looking forward to the rending of the SECOND VAIL or the taking off of the Physical Body, and taking on our "IMMORTAL or GLORIFIED BODY like unto His, at the Revelation of Jesus Christ from Heaven (see Plate No. 38B and Plate 38A and compare with Plate No. 1B and Plate NO. 1A, below).
This conclusively proves that there IS LIFE AFTER DEATH. Thus, by the Resurrection of Christ, according to Paul, who wrote, "DEATH WAS ABOLISHED and LIFE and IMMORTALITY was brought to LIGHT through the Gospel (see 2 Tim. 1:10) or the Power of God to raise Him from the dead (see I Cor. 6:14) and, thereafter, many of the Saints which slept in the dust of the earth arose and went into Jerusalem (see Matt.27:52-53 and 1 Cor. 15:5.6).
“IF IN THIS LIFE ONLY WE HAVE HOPE IN CHRIST, WE ARE OF ALL MEN MOST MISERABLE. But now IS CHRIST RISEN FROM THE DEAD, AND BECOME THE FIRSTFRUITS OF THEM T H A T SLEPT. For since by man CAME DEATH, by man CAME ALSO THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at His coming. Then cometh the END, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death" (I Cor. 15:19-26).
Not only do we look for a NEW, IMMORTAL or GLORIFIED BODY, we also as Peter said in his second epistle, look for a NEW HEAVEN and a NEW EARTH, "Looking for and hasting unto the coming of THE DAY of GOD, wherein the Heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, (the Church) according to His Promise, look for NEW HEAVENS and a NEW EARTH, wherein dwelleth RIGHTEOUSNESS" (2 Pet. 3:12,13, see also Most Holy Place, Plate 38A, page 61). See also Revelation the 2lst and 22nd Chapters.
