Only the logic of God can make sense of our strange world.

Some Concepts.

 

·      Infinity

 

That which does not and cannot have end nor limit.

The universe, for many, is infinite, but according to scientists it is constantly expanding; every second it is larger, which means it is subject to time. Or seen another way, if we could travel forward in time and go to time + 2 minutes and place ourselves at the end where the universe is growing, would we see that this part is empty? Without anything in it?

 

 

 

 

·      Our infinite minds?

Our mind is capable of imagining anything. Or is it?

 

Almost anything, but we are not able to imagine the infinite. Being also within the time arc (boundary zone of the Universe by which it grows with the passage of time –beyond it, there is no Universe) our minds become finite. No matter how big we can imagine something, a second later we can imagine something even bigger.

Even if we imagine the biggest number we can think of, a second later we can imagine a larger one. Nothing subject to time is infinite; not even our minds can imagine the infinite.

 

 

·      Proving God with a limited mind?

God has left what He is within the reach of our senses. For example, as we are totally unable to conceive in our minds the infinite, He has placed black holes in the universe that we can observe, because as stated in any encyclopedia, in these we can see time stop and pieces of infinite density. Thus, scientists say what many deny: infinity (God?). And they deny it precisely because they cannot conceive of something timeless and infinite. Science, which we value so highly in our society as true, reliable and palpable, therefore confronts us with that which is inconceivable for us; that which is not only invisible to our eyes, but also unthinkable.

And if the universe is growing with the passage of time, isn’t it the black holes which are or which communicate with the edge of the universe, where there is no time or space? Where perhaps God is found, infinite and timeless?  It is true that it can never be proven; on the contrary, we would not have the freedom to choose it and therefore we would never be His children, but slaves. So there will always be at least two ways to explain everything, God as the origin or the Universe as the origin (although the latter by logic seems to have been created; since it is subject to time, it has a beginning).

In addition…

There are concepts that are different in some nations

Person

It consists of our freedom and made decisions. Our way of being ("be" with small letters).

Love

Referred always love as a feeling, not sexual. As the feeling of a mother for her child that protects him over his own life.

Communion

Join spiritually or internally to other people (or God), is not binding company.

Holy Spirit

For the Christian, it's not St. Gabriel as it is for Muslims. It is God (Allah) in some intensity, the One who makes you feel great inside and helps you to carry calmly the sufferings of the world.

Sin

Action of unlove. Not necessarily those established 'legally'.

 

The study of this book begins from an absurd approach that would only be a theory if it were not for its confirmation in the book of Revelation, as will be seen. Following its development, everything makes sense.

All writing and mystery have understandable logic from the origin shown here. I invite the reader to be patient in order to get to know this language that underlies the Sacred Bible and that draws an argument previously unknown, spinning AT and NT in a clear confirmation of the only hand that wrote it: the Love of God, able to trace for three thousand years an amazing hidden pattern, which links with other religious confessions.

 

 

 

STORY AND PREMISE

 

The Logic of God

 

 

 

14th day of May of the year of our Lord 1827



I am about to write the vision I have had this night. I do not know why I have been allowed to see this, and because of the strangeness of what I have been shown, I could not even swear that it was not a dream. My name does not matter, but what I tell on these pages does; there is no doubt that for some reason it has been revealed to me.

 

I watched as an old man with kind eyes and a key in His hand approached me, and said to me:

-This key which I give to you is for the slaves of understanding who are unable to free themselves from the gravity of the worlds. There are others who are free from this slab, who did not change their path because of the burden of its weight. All of them must receive this message.

And then the man disappeared and another vision appeared. I saw beyond the heavens, above the stars and planets, there was a majestic kingdom.

The old man lived there, who turned out to be a mage, and was happy in His solitude. But He had a wish, and from His wish a being was formed. He was beautiful on the outside, and on the inside shone the magic with which the mage had created him, the same magic that the mage Himself was made of. He called him Yeshua. After speaking with His son, for this is what He called him, He concentrated and from a wish he created a subject. Such was His power that His wishes became reality, for they were formed from His very essence.

This subject was truly beautiful and was called Light Bearer. After him, He created many others and as they were formed from the essence of the mage, He loved them as He did Himself. But these subjects did not retain His magic within them with the same brightness as Yeshua did, who shone like the mage.

And being wishes, they did not consume time or occupy space, but in their sublime happiness of knowing they were loved by their Lord, they existed with the same force and the same power that the mage had wished for them. And so it was the force that the almighty mage bestowed upon His wishes that gave them life. And the mage was happy because He shared His joy with these new beings who, although they possessed part of His essence, developed freely and independently of Him. He said to them, “Live freely in my kingdom, I will give you everything. I make only one condition: do not yearn to decide what is right and what is wrong; choose only from what I say is right, continue being what you are, keep being my wishes.”

But I could see that the second wish, the first of the subjects who was called Light Bearer, believed himself to be superior to those coming after him because, despite having been born of a wish like everyone else, he compared himself to the firstborn son of the mage. And soon he even wanted to be more than the wishful mage Himself, and wished to make the rules for everything around him. He wanted to change the rules in order to rise above the others.

And he saw that he could do nothing to get to Him, only His wishes, and contemplating a tree with many branches wondered what would happen if he ripped them off all at once. He said to himself, “If I change the color of all of them, perhaps I could also change the trunk.” And so, he planned convince the rest of his brothers.

He said to them, “See that your essence should not have limitations, is your knowledge not enough to know what is right or what is wrong?” In his madness he thought that if he changed all the wishes of the mage, he would change the very way in which He wished. And ultimately, in this way, it would be he who would determine how to wish.

There were many who heard his words, and soon pride swelled within some of them, forming a squadron of loyal warriors. These in turn continued spreading betrayal, and of all the brothers there were those who became traitors, others who remained loyal and many others who did not take part, although a deep doubt stirred within them.

When Light Bearer saw that he was finally accompanied, he stood up against those who remained faithful.


And then I saw two winged men talking.

 

-General, general, general! There has been an uprising among His Majesty's subjects.

-How? It can't be; you must be wrong. They would have to renounce the very magic that created them.

-I didn't believe it either, but he knows he created us free, and they seem to have used their freedom for the worst; they have transformed, now they are like monsters.

-Call everyone quickly!

-My general has already sounded the alarm, but it seems that there are many who are undecided and do not want to fight.

-It's worse than I thought. Get all detachments out of here and start the attack. Call the officers' council as soon as possible. We'll all have to fight.

 

Another winged messenger arrived with a scroll in his hand.

-Sir, there is information about the deserters, the ones who remain inert.

-Cowards! Why don't they come and fight the rebellion?

-It seems that many of these were convinced by the leader of the rebels, one whom they call Bella Luz; they all want more magic from his majesty and stay with all that they find.

-What nonsense. They do not accept His Majesty's will.

-It is even worse, sir, because others, also because they loved the first ones who were convinced, have hesitated.

-Leave all these people alone now. Let's go get the rebels. They must be driven out of the kingdom.

 

The battle happened.... First the soldiers attacked, but failed to get the situation back on track. The officers arrived, great and powerful, but they could not cope with the uplifted either. It was then, when dazzling lightning followed by loud thunder announced the arrival of the Wizard.

He announced with a deep voice:

-Depose your attitude, for if you do not, you will suffer a worse fate than death.

Of all the rebels there were some who continued with Light Bearer, others who moved away out of fear and finally there were the doubters who did not intervene at any time, although they supported many of the previous ones (the fearers) because they were in love with them.

The Wizard raised his hands and in an instant, deactivated his magic in all his creatures.

The Wizard closed his eyes and, gathered in his own thoughts, observed how the magic they had stolen, and even the magic they had previously possessed within them, returned to him. They were all left empty on the floor like deflated wormholes. Then, he returned his Essence to the faithful soldiers and officers, but not to the others.

 

For a moment I perceived nothing but darkness, and then I saw the mage again.

-Your Divinity, the traitors have been defeated, but much of the people who did not fight in the battle have died in deception. It was a horrible betrayal.

 But the distressed mage did not reply. He remained silent, presiding over the room full of His faithful soldiers.

-There is no time to waste! Something must be done! -insisted the General-. We have their shells, sacks that contained their magic, but they are empty. Light Bearer emptied them with his deceit! All we have left of them is the decisions that, in their freedom, shaped the magic to make them how they were; but now the essence that gave them life is no longer there. We have a mold without essence. Your Divinity, what do we do?

-These sacks will not remain here for long; they will turn away from us because they are already empty of me -said the mage.

-I do not know how I have wronged you -he continued-. All I have, I have given to you. Not merely life, but also my love.

-My Lord, many remain loyal and many others have not participated”, said Mikael, the great general.

-Yes, but for those who have not risen up, doubt has driven away my essence. Look at them. There they crawl apart; they're dead.

-Sir, some also wanted Light Bearer’s poison, although they did not dare to lift a weapon against Your Majesty; the others loved them and did not sound the alarm.

-Yes, and they also doubted me, their own being.

-I know. You are the comfort for my tears, but it does not lessen by pain for the others.

In the back of the room appeared Light Bearer with two subjects of the mage. His exceptional beauty looked grimy now; an unpleasant smell around him caused those present to recoil and urgently make way for him as he slowly approached.

-It is all over. Tell me now, what did you hope to achieve by betraying me so? Was I not able to meet your needs? -asked the mage.

-How much I need, not how much I want. What life is this? Inferior beings surround me and you have always been determined to treat them as you treat me. I am far superior to them, Should I suffer such an injustice?

-What I give belongs to me and those to whom I want I give it. We do not speak of justice, but rather favor. The rules are set by me. I know good and evil, and I even know which of you are the best and which are the worst; I know who is the most powerful, and you must believe that on rare occasion do the best have greater ability -he said-. All you had to accept was this: the rule that, in my love, you are all equal; everything else, you already had.

-You ignore what it is to know yourself to be superior to he who controls your life. To see power squandered on those who do not deserve it. Look! -shouted Light Bearer, pointing to those present- Weak! Made to serve. Father, you treat them as you treat me, and they only deserve slavery.

-Do not call me father. As a beautiful wish I gave you part of my essence, because I wanted you to live independently of me. But in your freedom you chose hatred. You tortured many of your brothers in battle. You renounced the foundation of my essence, you denied the cause of your life, of your own body, my love. For only love led me to create you, to share with you my complete happiness. And I say then, those who have remained by my side must be treated as my children. Yes, those who have overcome you with weakness and loyalty have always bound themselves to me.

-Ha! They stay with you because in their weakness I was not able to share my plans with them. Be sure that their love or the forgiveness that the other cowards now beg of you,” he said, pointing into the distance, “it is because they fear your power.

-I know you succumbed to pride. And with your choice you have made a screen between everyone; I have no doubt about the others who have proven their loyalty with bravery on the battlefield. I'll talk to the others, with those who, because of their love for those who were persuaded, did not fight in my favor, it may be enough. Now, go await your sentence -he ordered.

-No! Do they not call you just? And were they not also disloyal? Didn't they break the first law? Didn't they fail in their faithfulness and love for you?  I want special treatment like them! – he shouted.

-Take him away –said the troubled mage.

 

The mage was pensive as Light Bearer left.

-Difficult is my situation, because I would like to recover at least those who did not raise arms against you, or against me -he said finally.

-My Lord, yours is the power and what you command shall be fulfilled.

-You do not understand, Mikael. What would I gain by forcing them? I do not want to have slaves. I want to have happiness around me; I want to have life, not death. Forcing them would be like wishing for something that I do not wish, and it is my wish that gives them life; ultimately, in that way, they would not have life. -But Mikael did not seem to understand, so he continued-. They live because they do so in me; it would be as if my cry of affirmation denied me; it would cease to be a cry of affirmation... -he insisted-. Do you not understand that my powerful magic is simply love?

-It isn’t that easy. Light Bearer has appealed to my sense of justice, and I cannot stop being. Moreover, to keep them here would also be an injustice to you who have loyally fought. Light Bearer wants his same destiny, because they too have emptied themselves of me; but I cannot live with hatred, he can never contain my magic. I must make a new nature for those who did not hate and I must validate it by giving myself so that Luzbel cannot hold me accountable in the name of justice; moreover, it must escape from the justice of the old nature and its law, even though it founds it on a similar law...

-Wait, I must see them now that they have lost me, I want to see if they hope to return to me.

And He placed them on the ground.

He saw them and they saw Him. And as they saw Him, they were afraid of displeasing Him, so they decided to all agree, for they said, “We will be left with nothing if you do not fill us again with some of your magic.” So they decided to trick the mage and unite in a false brotherly love, because they knew that the mage would only fill His wishes with magic, and His wish was Love. They came together like a tower of empty bricks in order to have their magic again through lies.

-Their molds have a defect. They have been tainted by Light Bearer. They have a broken spout and are not able to hold onto me even if they wanted to -said the mage. Moreover, they want to accept me out of fear, so they are no longer free.

“I will muddle their understanding. I will become invisible to them and just send them a few paths so that they may form their person. Seven different paths that run parallel in the same direction, not united as they are now. They must discover what truly gives them life, that which supports the seven paths, that which supports all of creation, Love. My Love. So I will place them within bodies, in cages that confine them, lest they continue to fall away from me. And I will call them men and put them in worlds subject to time and space in a great dome. There they can open that spout freely, allowing them to be filled with me again.

As for their acquired defect, I'll have to send the cure at the right time, the vaccine that will heal this new structure with bodies which they have become, that will fix the molds, that will make it all new again and make them once again my wish and please me as men like they did before as wishes. And this can only be done by my firstborn son; he who shares my magic entirely, so that justice will be fulfilled. Only he can fix the crooked. Only his infinite love can fix those molds that cannot hold me. Because I was very pleased when I created him and saw that his personality or freedom could keep my magic intact, infinite love, and then I created the others that were like him in creation, but their freedom didn't keep my magic in the same intensity. Yet I was pleased.

Thus he will become a man to see if his freedom, attached to a body with its needs and wants, can continue holding onto me this way, onto infinite love even in the worst circumstances, and not die. When he does, he will have turned them all... all men, into wishes conceived with infinite love. Because if I, in an act of absolute love, created them as wishes of God love, my son will recreate them as men of love in an equal act of absolute love and I can live in them once again but now in their new nature. In this way, I will not reverse what they have become because of their disloyalty, an injustice to the others, but my son will make everything new for them.

Yes, I must be the one to validate the new nature in my child, so that I can save them as something new without doing injustice to those who hated me. So that nature will escape the justice of the old one by being something different from what it was when it committed treason, and this will be so because it will be my own being, in my son, the one tested in the new nature to validate it. To prove that he's capable of maintaining my essence. And there will be no injustice, for I created the angel nature because my firstborn Son kept me in his created nature (person). If in nature man maintains my Essence in an act of infinite Love, this nature will have the right to exist by itself with the Essence”.

-My Lord, you are really going to send your firstborn son?

- Yes, He has offered Himself. Why are you surprised? At first I was alone and I was happy in my magic. Then I wished for my son. A person or freedom created by me, in myself. And even being free and independent, he did not change my essence. I was so pleased that I made new wishes, also of my essence, to my own image, but the figure molded by your freedom, your person, did not allow my magic to dwell, but adapting to you, lowering its intensity. Though you pleased me, my magic could not dwell in its absolute form; something that does not happen in my son with whom I share my exact essence. So, it was he who validated your nature as my wishes, free and independent of me.

“I know that he will now validate the new structure formed by cage and mold, as he did with yours. And then my essence, in their freedom, can return to them and they will be made in my image and likeness, in my son again.”

But that will not be enough, because there on earth, where I will put them, they will have to turn their backs on the idols and look at me. For there I will put for an idol a shining material called gold, that it may simulate the conditions here. For if here they desired my Essence above you and me, there many will desire gold above their neighbor and me. It will be of no use for my Son to make them fit for the Spirit if in the new nature they commit the same sin as here. Light Bearer will cry out to justice in another way.”

-And where will His Majesty put that land?

-By the central part of a great Vault that I will call the universe. Then they won't be able to see me and they can choose me free. There in, Light Bearer, whom I will not give body to because he alone can hate, will be able to whisper to his ears just as he did here. When your bodies die, your souls if you have something of my Essence will ascend to the end of the Universe, where we are. They will take more or less time to leave depending on the amount they have. Well, I'll give them time, too. I'll make sure that everything they do has to be done after the one they did before. The whole universe will move at every step of a great pendulum.

And I saw how the magician's son was sent.

And I could see him grow up as a man, speaking his father's word. He explained everything differently than other envoys of the magician did. There were those who followed him, and others were left soliviant; attacked in their strongest beliefs. And what was foreseen by the magician, happened.

With voracity the son was assaulted and raised up; he who spoke of loving men. But he, about to die, even to his torturers, forgave and in such an act of infinite love, the betrayal of the accursed was broken, for in Yahshua the faithfulness to the father was tested, and his fire was infinitely more burning than that of Light Bearer. A warmth of love enough to forge in him the new nature. And so, in the son, love rose over the world, thus teaching all the exiles of the kingdom the way back, the renunciation of the world and its idols. For since then it has been seen as a radiant sign of light all over the world, there, at the infinite height of that cross. In him was made present the love of the father to all the men who sacrificed their own son to save them. And the son made everything new by validating the structure of man as the container of magic, and since it was he himself in his Son who gave himself, making the new nature valid, neither Light Bearer nor anyone else could claim any justice from him.

That's when I woke up.

END OF STORY.

 

 

 

 

Nothing but a story?

 

 

 

 

As I said, it seems far-fetched, but this, written as a story, explains many of the things which happen to us in this world and which are incomprehensible especially by nonbelievers or those who doubt their Faith (or simply have doubts about the meaning of life).

There are many points in the Bible that fit more easily in minds governed by logic in this way.

Please note therefore that what is written here is a theory that gives greater meaning to everything; that without changing the scriptures, gives a new perspective from which to contemplate them. Thus, knowing that it is nothing more than a hypothesis, read it as such, keeping the appropriate distance. This essay is not intended to change beliefs, whatever your religion, just to look at things from what might have happened in heaven before everything. Changing the perspective in this way, as I said, does not change any of the above at all.

To demonstrate the theory I will use the Bible, of course, for I am a Christian, but I am sure that in delving into other sacred books of other religions there would be something that would confirm this. However, what is described herein will be useful for many, as it is still the Word written thousands of years ago with a message that was hidden until today, that in no way could have been manipulated by man over such a long time.

For the beginning of the whole story we will inevitably look at Genesis. As it seems to be widely recognized, the passages of Adam and Eve are written as a metaphor to teach men in all eras. Consider that the Old Testament was related 3000 years ago, and it was not done by philosophers or scholarly thinkers, but by people whose greatest worldly ambition was to own some cows and little else. Normally, the environment known by an average person consisted of a couple of valleys and some villages; a province, in any case. This being so, are we surprised that the passages in Genesis are a metaphor? That all it is missing is a little colored drawing with the apple, serpent, Adam and Eve? They had to understand it, just like us. It seems clear that the serpent symbolizes the devil (the prophet Ezekiel says that Lucifer was in Eden), the apple perhaps the wish to “Be” for ourselves or above God or others, and the big question: who do Adam and Eve really symbolize? This is the key that is explained in this essay and that settles everything (it is bad to say it, but you will see that it is true). Deciphering this enigma, the yarn begins to unravel so that the Bible itself confirms in its Words the wonderful and logical framework that God has woven for our salvation.

So, this is the initial hypothesis (which will later be clearly demonstrated):

The passages of Adam and Eve speak in metaphor to so that we might understand.

It speaks of Fallen Angels, Eve Angels, and Adam Angels, of God and the desire to be more; to have more intensity from God.

 

·         Fallen Angels, the most evil, represented by a serpent.

 

·         Eve Angels, those who allow themselves to be persuaded and then persuade their “partner”, represented by woman; something that still seems to be a stereotype in our times (the man is the head, the woman is the neck who directs his gaze). Then, she is more understandable as a metaphorical figure.

 

·         Adam Angels, represented by man (male), who is persuaded by his wife (stereotype).

That being said, here I will propose that we, everyone personally, were not only designed by God before the world, but that in that design we were created with freedom. The scandalous premise of us as wishes or lost "angels" must be addressed as a possible origin, just as God’s design for us before the world could be. Nothing, or almost nothing, would have to do with us in the new creation, man.

In any case, these are some questions that from this perspective are clearly explained and will be expanded upon in the essay:


- Why, if the devil fell and was exiled from heaven, is he present as a serpent in Eden?
- Why, even at the risk of losing our lives, and being from different religions, do we all profess that we feel truly filled with God, full of life, of Spirit?
- Why do we carry the sin of Adam and Eve when God has made us free from the sins of our parents, grandparents, etc.?
- And even carrying the sin of Adam and Eve, if we know that God loves us infinitely, that each of us is a different creation, why were we created with a flawed nature with that sin, with death, if we could have been created as angels, because everything is possible for Him?
- Why is the devil so 'foolish' as to rise against Almighty God?
- Why does the cross save us and give us life?
- Why does God allow suffering?
- Why is hell real?
- Why does God allow other religions, which are also valid paths toward salvation?
- Why the theory of evolution?
- Why did we exist in the mind of God before the creation of the world? (according to passages of the Bible).
- Why is the Virgin Mary immaculate?
- Why is it logical that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit does not have forgiveness? (Mt 12:31)
- Is there a Jacob's Staircase?
- Why the dark book of Revelation?
- What is the Meaning of Life? (Logically)


To explain, several passages of the Bible that seem to show a deeper meaning will be discussed, along with what they really tell us. That is, the interpretation does not change the meaning, but further distinguishes another added message.

Although it is known that the logic of God is Love, from our limited knowledge sometimes we do not understand it as such, especially in some events in our history. However, knowing the origins of our death, a subject dealt with in this essay, we will arrive at a full understanding.

Reasons about the facts of God in the history of mankind are also explained here; and then, everything written will be put to the test on this principle:

The Bible, (a book “compiled” since more than 3000 years ago, as I said) also shows a new argument, consistent and perfectly woven from the Old Testament (Torah) to the New Testament (Gospels, Acts, Letters, Revelation). Being that this argument has gone unnoticed until today, there is no possibility that the New was written in reference to the Old (a possible argument of staunch atheism).

Logically we know that the Grand Canyon (for example) was formed by nature and not by man (even if we have not seen it), because it has formed over thousands of years, sculpted by erosion, the weather, etc. The Bible has a single author: the Holy Spirit, who has written through the prophets, apostles, etc. a fascinating logic of Love throughout the entire history of man.

Before we begin, if the reader does not believe in God based solely on the logic of the world, I invite you to remember that we are in the world, and the world is in the universe; but where did the universe come from? From where is it suspended? Where did the first atom of the Big Bang come from?

To visualize what happens to us, we might think about mice in a lab cage that have been given some toys. Anything they do is done through the toys because they don’t know anything else. All the logic from the world we might want to apply is necessarily limited by the rules of the universe that we have been given. And we can we create a whole structure of reasoning based on this, but it is always based on a nonexistent original support point. The little mice can do wonders with their toys, even stack them up, but they won’t wonder where they came from. This is not a metaphor, because for God we are like those little mice, but we can get an idea of ​​what happens. Someone whose existential principle has no logic cannot argue logic to deny God.

So to understand the essay, try to “see” the universe as a creation of God, and Him (the Father whom no one has seen) as outside the Universe (our particular cage) itself.

As a final clarification, I would note that the Passages chosen throughout this work, unless otherwise indicated, are taken from the New Jerusalem Bible [BJ97, NBJ] (Catholic). However, there are very few differences in translation in the selected readings compared to other Protestant bibles. Some Passages will also be taken from the Quran as a reference to other religions; these begin with the word “Surah”.



 

1-      We are made in the image and likeness of God

What I now write will be an aberration for Muslims or Jews, but they also know that when we keep God (Allah) inside, we can live happily even amid suffering, we are able to forgive and do things which without God we could not do, and we keep being us! So what I say now of Jesus Christ, we share infinitesimally when we have God within us.

So, let's think for a moment that Jesus Christ was an immense wish of God, or a person created with freedom who, though free, has not separated from Him one iota; he has maintained the pure essence of God within, which makes Jesus Christ God's essence, even being a created person; the Father is in Him and He in the Father. This would be so because desires of God are made from His own essence.

 

 

·      The Angels

Suppose that angels are God’s wishes that have separated from Him enough to stop being Him in essence and become what they are: angels. Although they are faithful, loyal, pure and please God, in their freedom (cause) they have differentiated from Him.  Imagine there was an angel who in his freedom wanted to wish, as God. He wanted to create and be God. In doing so, he changed what he was. He ceased to be God's wish. He hated the one who wished him because it was He who kept him from what he wanted, since in ceasing to be His wish, he ceased to be. Because God is the only one who is, one can only be by being His wish (and always in Him).

 

 

·      Suppose we too were a wish of God

 

We were also desires of God. This is not as farfetched as it seems. Was the devil not an angel? He is the fallen angel. And we aren’t as bad as him, right? What is more difficult then? That an angel becomes a demon (a being of a different nature) or a man (also a being of a different nature)?

But under this scenario, we would not have risen up against God, but rather we doubted Him, otherwise we would already be demons.

Suppose we now wish to go on a trip. But that wish becomes doubtful. The doubt has come from us since our wishes are not free and independent; we are not God. But if the wish were free and doubted itself, would it not be denying us, since we were the ones who wished it? And if so, would it not cease to be our wish? And if its being was that of a wish, would it not have lost its raison d’être, its reason for existence, its own self? Since a wish cannot wish itself, without a wisher there can be no wish. What if we did the same? Perhaps in doubt, although we did not rise up against Him and did not hate Him, we denied Him and we emptied ourselves of Him... ergo, we ceased to be, since the only thing that “is” is God, and we stopped being His wishes. As a hair that falls off of one’s head, we die and fall devoid of life.

Therefore, as we are no longer His wishes, we are already dead. But He loves us so much that He wants to bring us back.

Now imagine one of our own wishes. Isn’t it true that it is something close to us because it is ours? It is always there with us. Sometimes we remember that the wish is within reach (in our mind until we make it reality, of course). All we have to do is think a little, and there is that wish that we have pending. What if that wish becomes unwanted by us? It will no longer be in our minds with our other wishes. It will be far away. Perhaps we will see it in another person (a demon, referring to the story), but we no longer recognize it as our wish.

In our death as God’s wishes, the death our being, we inevitably turned away from God. But in order to save us, He put us in small cages, our bodies, lest we fall like some dead essence that slips helplessly along with those who hate anything that has to do with Him; or ourselves, for that matter.

The cage, our body, supports our empty “not being” on earth so that in our freedom, we can fill it with the Spirit without falling into hell, where the fallen angels are, who were like us but hated their essence and are beyond help. They were not emptied; they filled themselves with hatred. There were no cages for them. They have not had the opportunity to fill themselves again with the Spirit of God as men. Once the body is dead, that which holds us, if we become desires of God again, we will go to Him, attracted by Him; if not, we will fall definitively away from Him to Lucifer and his followers.

It’s important to be clear that it is not a punishment but God’s grace that makes us men (that new creation, with cage included). Because if in our freedom we emptied ourselves of Him and stop being His wish, in our freedom we must return to what we were (wanting to be that wish again, wanting to Be again). Or part of what we were, because when we were pure wishes (in the image of God the Father, of His essence) we were very close to Him, a thought’s distance away. As men, if we get to heaven, we will never be what we were before.

 

 John 14:2

In my Father's house there are many places to live in; otherwise I would have told you. I am going now to prepare a place for you.

 

 For this reason it was nonsense to ask to sit next to Christ. And being that we were created initially by His wish in the image and likeness of God, we have emptied ourselves of him and now by His grace we are created as men, and Christ (the person) turns men into "containers" compatible with God and we become like Him once again in the Son. Thus, really, the place that prepares Christ is our own body. In redeeming nature man makes our "house" worthy of the Father. The kingdom of God and the House of God is the Holy Spirit itself that we can live here, in ourselves, from the passion. When he says, I am going to prepare you a place, it refers to the infinite act of love of the Passion that makes us fit again to receive God. To ask to be on His right was like asking to be God, because the Spirit dwells in different intensity in each one, being the one of the Father and the one of the Son the maximum or infinite, that of God. Being away may mean being empty, nothing coming, as if we were talking about radio waves. It would be to be condemned to hell, to a painful perpetual death, knowing also what we are lost, because after dying we will all remember (this for those who have not already felt it in the world). .

John 14:20

On that day you will know that I am in my Father and you in me and I in you.


  Of course, it will be our freedom that places us closer to God or further away from Him (and closer to hell: where the rebels are) once the test, the world, is over. It is not God's punishment, rather His grace that has allowed us the ability to find Life again. By ourselves, we would have found eternal death and infinite torture at the hands of the rebels, of those who became hateful and lost their freedom, who lost their humanity to become monsters. Thus, the original sin is death. It is the doubt of being His wishes that made us stop being them. It is wanting to be gods as Lucifer did or denial of us as God’s wishes, wanting to Be by ourselves, the denial of God, the denial of Being and Living. What differentiates us from the traitors is that we did not rise up. We were emptied by doubt; we did not become hateful. Something that unfortunately continues to happen to many in the world when we want to become the gods of our history, being above others; we empty ourselves of love, we empty ourselves of Him.

Finally, in the world He gives us a new opportunity to save us from this perpetual death away from Him. This is why the world gives us all the ingredients to return to Life as it was in heaven: the choice of betrayal or loyalty. Choosing to become desires of God again or to reaffirm our original sin (this is what God has called our betrayal in heaven). And why only that: “original sin”? Why just an apple? Maybe because God speaks to men according to their understanding.

 

2-      Adam and Eve.

·      Why does God speak in this way?

It seems clear that the story of Adam and Eve is a metaphor in which the serpent is the devil and the apple our wish to “Be” without God… The question is, why does God speak this way, especially in the Old Testament? Why in Joshua 10:12 does he say "Sun, stand still over Gibeon"? Because God speaks to men according to their understanding. If the prophet believes it is the sun that moves, he is not going to say, "Tell the earth to stand still," because for him it is very still, and the man has enough on his plate talking to God without talking about gravity on top of it. Even more so if the prophet's words are written for many generations that have that belief. God speaks to us according to our understanding in our personal history as well. Consider also that, except on rare occasions, God does not speak to prophets directly, but with events, signs, signals or dreams, which we interpret as far as we know.

 

·      Let’s go into Adam and Eve a Little according to the proposed hypothesis

 

 

Genesis 3:9-11

But Yahweh God called to the man. 'Where are you?'  he asked.

'I heard the sound of you in the garden,' he replied. 'I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.'

'Who told you that you were naked?' he asked. 'Have you been eating from the tree I forbade you to eat?'

 

Imagine that these passages speak of us as men but also as wishes of God in heaven, before being men. According to what is said here, a duality would fit in many passages of the scriptures, not changing their meanings, but adding greater depth of meaning in different times.

Imagine now that Adam represents men (and women) before we were men, in heaven as angels or desires of God. We lived happily until one of us, Lucifer, tempted many to become like him (serpent). He tempted others who listened to him and believed him, but did not rise up against God out of fear (Eve). The latter, although they didn’t rise up, raised doubt in others, aided by the empathy or love they had among them rather than by reason. Those who did not believe the serpent are the Adams, and they finally doubt because of the Eves. Therefore, Eve would be those who believed Lucifer, and Adam is those who doubted because of their love for their brothers and sisters, the Eves, because of love and trust in the one who told them.

Both Adams and Eves have ceased to be wishes of God and have lost their essence; later, they separate from Him, symbolized by the shame of being naked that makes them hide. That could also be the act of ceasing to be desires of God => Who told you that you were naked? = Who convinced (told) you that you are not my wishes? => Who has emptied you (stripped naked) of my wish? On many occasions, garments in the Bible allude to the Holy Spirit. But the seriousness of what the Eves had done was greater because they believed Lucifer and, what’s more, others fell because of them. So much so that God wonders if He should give them another chance or if they have actually died as Lucifer did. But He sees that it was the love of the Adams for the Eves which caused them to doubt Him. And because of their virtue, He decides to give the Eves a chance, symbolized in the passage and in Eve being created from Adam’s rib. Because of their love, the Eves also become men. They are given the cage that gives them the chance to return as God’s wishes. The rib may also symbolize that, because of the Adams (open to the word of God), Life (salvation) can come to the Eves (those with their ears closed to the Word in the world).

So the Adams and Eves as wishes (in this duality) do not symbolize a man and a woman, not even Men and Women, but rather those who believed Lucifer and those who doubted because of other wishes whom they loved. That being so, then, in the world, the Adams would be those who have opened their senses to God and the Eves those who have not.

 

Gospel of Mark 4:11-12

He told them, 'To you is granted the secret of the kingdom of God, but to those who are outside everything comes in parables, so that they may look and look, but never perceive; listen and listen, but never understand; to avoid changing their ways and being healed.'

 

Perhaps the Eves of the world must receive salvation through the Adams of the world, as the latter were led astray by the mouth of the former.

 

Gospel of Matthew 10:34-39

 'Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth: it is not peace I have come to bring, but a sword.

For I have come to set son against father, daughter against mother, daughter-in-law against mother-in-law; a person's enemies will be the members of his own household.

'No one who prefers father or mother to me is worthy of me. No one who prefers son or daughter to me is worthy of me.

Anyone who does not take his cross and follow in my footsteps is not worthy of me.

Anyone who finds his life will lose it; anyone who loses his life for my sake will find it.

 

This would explain that in our families there are effectively four who do believe and four who don’t, or any other combination but almost always random. Even in young Christian communities receiving a similar education in the Faith we can see these differences.

The rest of this reading that talks about our families today is easily explainable: those who really have the Holy Spirit (and their ears open) somehow change the "visual" perspective of everything; suffering does not “kill” them, there is no “treasure” in the world that can make them betray the Lord. It seems tough to say, but without fear of death in the world (having this perspective), you know that your future and that of your child is in being faithful to the Lord, not in how well you get along with each other. Life is not in your child loving you very much and you loving them more than anything. They are natural things in this world, but it is true that the Spirit changes the perspective of everything. If you really have Faith, you would find great suffering in knowing that your child turned away from God, and great happiness knowing that your son died in God's grace.

Returning to the Story of Adam and Eve, on our side of the “duality”, it also speaks in the same metaphor of man created as man in the world, and seems to also give a metaphorical explanation of our origins, with Adam as male and Eve as female... or does it?

Suppose God wanted to go putting souls in bodies that came from Adam and Eve (which may or may not be a determining point in the evolution of Homo sapiens, it doesn’t matter). Suppose He wanted to skip the subject of DNA at first, or the metaphor Adam=Men, Eve=Women; that doesn’t matter either. Either way, they would be new “souls” arriving to each body. Because it doesn’t matter if the theory of evolution gave rise to the cages which later joined. Maybe He simply put monkeys on earth to respect our freedom to choose (everything can be explained at least two ways). That issue which is so often brought up by atheists is not the most important one. The difficult issue is to think of original sin as an inheritance, given that He gives freedom to every one of us; a freedom that allows us to betray our parents, our children, and even ourselves as men (killing ourselves). In this sense, the issue fits better with the idea of being God’s wishes before the world began.

It may seem unfair that the sin of our ancestors has driven us from paradise. God was willing to save Sodom because of ten righteous men who were in the city (who certainly would have also had some unrighteous ancestors – even killers. Perhaps we ourselves have an ancestor who even insulted the Holy Spirit, a sin without forgiveness according to Jesus Christ).

Doesn’t it seem more just, then, that it was each of us, as God’s wishes before everything, who committed the original betrayal (original sin)? At the end of the day, are we not full of pride as a common denominator?

Even this point of view complies with the dogmas of Faith (which will be discussed later).

And seeing everything from this perspective, wouldn’t this be a more paradisiacal paradise?

In what also appears to be a metaphor, it says:

 

Gen 3:23

So Yahweh God expelled him from the garden of Eden, to till the soil from which he had been taken.

 

If we understood this literally, we would think that heaven is a place in which one does not have to work; it would almost be like saying that the world's rich are in paradise (at least while their bodies last). Or even that they were like gods, since in they would have the power to provide paradise (not working) to others. And it is well known that being rich doesn’t make you happier; indeed, many feel who empty, many who don’t know how (or don’t want) to reflect commit suicide... Heaven has more to do with feeling the fullness of having God inside you. Knowing that you are a wish of God; freely choosing to be a wish of God in accordance with his original wish that was us. Being in communion with Him. Being. Heaven is Living and not be empty but rather full of Him.

However, in “Eden” it speaks only of physical goods for man, leading us to believe that it is indeed metaphorical, revealed in this way so that man could understand.

 

 

The patent duality between soul/body experienced by those who consciously do not want to deny it, speaks of this duality between wishes/men; before/after; no betrayal/with betrayal; heaven/world.

Genesis 2:9    From the soil, Yahweh God caused to grow every kind of tree, enticing to look at and good to eat, with the tree of life in the middle of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Genesis 2:16 Then Yahweh God gave the man this command, 'You are free to eat of all the trees in the garden.

Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you are not to eat; for, the day you eat of that, you are doomed to die.'

In this word (Gen. 2: 9), the Tree of Life as I say refers (in heaven) to the Essence of God, the Spirit which gives Life, and the tree of the science of good and evil to the Freedom also to choose evil. Which, start by knowing what is bad, or else we could not have chosen it. Knowledge or science refers to knowing that that Essence of God, that Tree of Life, is the precious Essence that makes desires of God more or less, to the angels. Up there there were no necessities and of course we were free, but we chose among everything there was: good options, (many trees). It is not that God did not let us approach freedom (or choose between trees, including the tree of the science of good and evil), but he did not allow us to take that particular option, the apple of the tree of knowledge, which In itself brought us literally death. Thus, the apple, is to desire and to take the Essence, of the Tree of Life; For the highest knowledge was to know that our deepest root of Being was in the Essence of God in the Tree of Life. I hold that in heaven we lived bathed in the Essence of God, in a state full of happiness, and this Essence was within reach of our "hand." Paradoxically, wanting to be more and fill us more with his Essence, we empty ourselves completely and die.

And our sorrow began when the devil deceived us by telling us that we were not free because God told us that we could not do evil (we can not take more essence, stop loving ...). And it's a lie like the one that puts us in the world when it tells us that doing the will of God will restrain you, it takes away your freedom, the good things. It is exactly the same, because we are free to do all kinds of good and that keeps us alive; Even when we listen to the devil, we empty ourselves here and die.

Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil

Tree of Life. Genesis.

In Genesis 2:16-17 it says, “the day you eat of that, you are doomed to die.” Why? Because we immediately cease to be God’s wish. His essence (pure love) disappears; we scare it away, we reject it, we shut it down, because it does not live with evil, no exceptions. We either are His wish or we are not. We are doomed to die because we stop being what we were and become something empty, dead. We stop being His wish, and without Him we are no more, since we were created as His wishes.

Genesis 3:22 Then Yahweh God said, 'Now that the man has become like one of us in knowing good from evil, he must not be allowed to reach out his hand and pick from the tree of life too, and eat and live for ever!'

In Genesis 3:22, it seems to say that we are made in His image and likeness, because not only were we made from a tiny part of His essence, but we were made “like” Him; we are free and independent of Him. We are no longer a part of Him, but independent “others” => “like one of us”. Furthermore, God knew everything, all possibilities, including the one that would allow the wishes to do evil. The wishes, before choosing the wrong path, had only done good and that was all they knew. As for eating of the tree of life, this seems to refer to taking more essence of God, fattening a wish that is no longer God’s and ultimately wanting to be God => live forever; Be what He Is. In other words, the action or goal we seek when taking the wrong path. If eating the apple (from the tree of knowledge) symbolizes the decision to choose evil, the motivation in this decision is to be like God => eat from the tree of life, His Essence.

Genesis 3:10 'I heard the sound of you in the garden,' he replied. 'I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.'

To continue discussing these passages that seem to be the key to “why is the world like this?”, let’s continue with: Genesis 3:10 “I heard the sound of you in the garden… I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid,” which as I mentioned in “Adam and Eve” could refer to being emptied of God (= naked), and hiding (= turning away, the magnet no longer attracts wood) as wishes. As another interpretation of iniquity (what undressed us), we may think that at first, if we compared ourselves to God, we were equally almost empty, or with little intensity of the Spirit (though much more than any of us has down here) but like the children here, who are happy with little, there we were also, until Luzbel told us that we were naked, and iniquity entered. After the betrayal we were naked or empty at all.

Much of what comes next seems to speak of man and woman as parts of the world, as bodies, in this
“duality” that can be deduced in the Bible. He says to the serpent:

Genesis 3:15-21

I shall put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; it will bruise your head and you will strike its heel.'

To the woman he said: I shall give you intense pain in childbearing, you will give birth to your children in pain. Your yearning will be for your husband, and he will dominate you.

To the man he said, 'Because you listened to the voice of your wife and ate from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat, Accursed be  the soil because of you! Painfully will you get your food from it as long as you live.

It will yield you brambles and thistles, as you eat the produce of the land.

By the sweat of your face will you earn your food, until you return to the ground, as you were taken from it. For dust you are and to dust you shall return.'

The man named his wife 'Eve' because she was the mother of all those who live.

Yahweh God made tunics of skins for the man and his wife and clothed them.

If we look at this part “I shall put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers”, we know that the lineage refers to Jesus (and therefore the Virgin), but before that it says, in general, “between you and the woman”. And what is the woman? She is the mother of her children, she raises them, loves them with an intense love that is different from the father; she is weaker than the man, physically speaking, and she is less given to violence because she isn’t brimming with testosterone, which is also a reason why she is not always ready to mate (=> something that is used by the devil as temptation, which he seems to do more with men or at least more often). And seeing this, doesn’t it seem to be a “body” designed for love, for humility? And doesn’t humility repel the devil? Then, of course, each of our freedoms is above our body.

The rest seems to clearly refer to man-world.

Finally, in Genesis 3:21, “tunics of skins… and clothed them”. To the physical body, God adds the empty soul (the mold formed by our decisions which, in our freedom, shaped the essence of God and which, after deciding to betray God – choosing evil, the apple – broke and was emptied – and which Jesus Christ repaired in the world, giving us the possibility of being filled again). Keep in mind that even before, as wishes, they felt naked, empty of the essence of God, and now as bodies, He attaches their empty soul, their empty wish; He dresses them in something that is now superficial, hollow (clothing), what was left of what we were. Now the new creation is body plus soul, because otherwise, the soul with no essence, without being anchored by the body, would have fallen hopelessly toward Lucifer, into eternal torture.

According to all the above and added  evidence (p. 177)  that identifies the groups of angels in Revelation (faithful angels, Adam angels, and Eve angels), we see that the genesis is structured as shown in 7. Logically p.207.

Adam and Eve. Genesis.

3-      Jesus Christ, the key to the World

For non-Christians reading this essay, the points I am about to mention will be difficult to process. Reading it will help to better understand Christians, but it may be of interest to you at this time to skip to section 7. The Apocalypse (in any case, I think you should also see: 5.2 Islam, 5.4 Judaism) . Most of all I would like you all to see the scriptures that confirm this wonderful fact: that all of us, including you, existed as free persons before the world, and that God laid down, as described below, 7 separate paths that run parallel in their direction only to preserve our freedom to choose Him and provide us with the love we need to fill ourselves with as much as we need it. The Apocalypse is also contemplated with other passages from the Old Testament that are analyzed throughout the essay. For Muslims, know that the explanation given by both the Quran and the Bible about the crucifixion are both compatible and confirm Jesus for who he is, but told from different points of view, from heaven or from earth. This can be seen in 6. Islam.

If you wish to continue, think of Christ at all times, even in heaven, as our brother in his created nature or personhood, just as we were created. That we all harbored, to a greater or lesser extent, the essence of God within us, with more or less intensity according to how our persona or freedom was able to identify with love, but that Christ kept the essence intact, equal to God. So much so that, although we call ourselves children of God, Christ is the True and Firstborn Son. He is a created person and God’s Essence; the created person is our brother, (before and after), the Essence is God. The combination is the Son.

 

 

·     Why did the first righteous men wait in hell for the Son of God to come down to them?

 

As God’s wishes, in our freedom we emptied ourselves of Him. He makes us men, joining us to cages to keep us away from death, like connecting a dying man to machine-assisted breathing. The hard events of our history are like electroshocks trying to bring us to life.

But in our original betrayal, we lost a fundamental organ to embrace God, to sustain Life, which cannot be replaced with all the medication and good vital signs in the world. Not unless a transplant is done by a healthy One. Let's say that in Jesus Christ, we all (all mankind) are given that organ that gives us the ability to once again be desires of God. In our free choice is the ability to do it. The righteous before Jesus Christ had that free choice and had a willingness for life, but they were missing the organ. They were missing Christ, who shared our nature as wishes, now in our new nature which he assumed voluntarily, giving his extreme love to change the nature of man, to make it love. So, just as a light shining can change the appearance of what surrounds it, we are all changed in the eyes, or the feeling, of the Holy Spirit; although we remain the same men, we are now conceivable by God and can once again be His wish, the Spirit may return to dwell in us.

The final result is that man by himself is not able to once again embrace God or become God's wish. Since it was necessary to test this new structure, it is the Son of God who, in his love, tests the ability of the new creation (man) to accept “being” and remain God's wish.

If we believe that Jesus Christ is the true Son of God because he was His greatest wish who did not separate from Him one iota, we can also believe that, in this choice to not separate from Him, the Son passed a test that made him stay within Him and be God like the Father (being made of His essence and having not changed it in his freedom). Something that Lucifer wanted but could not achieve because he turned away from his origin (= use of his created freedom to “shape” the essence of God he was given), infinitely from Him. Consider that the angels in their origin have freedom created by God, whose decisions shape their person and this will contain the Essence given by God, provided that that person or mold is compatible with the Essence of God.

Let's consider this scenario: Almighty God, eternal, absolute, doesn’t need anything; singular, nothing else to be found anywhere. From Himself, He creates his greatest wish, His Son. And He sees that he remains within Him, free and independent, without deviating from Him at all. He is a creation but also maintains the unchanged essence of God, for the Father is also in him and continues being what He was. Seeing that His Son pleases Him, He decides to create other smaller wishes. And everything continues as previously discussed.

It would follow, then, that in His Son, this new kind of God’s “wish” is tested (to please God). When His Son pleased Him, who remains within Him and is God, He makes new, smaller wishes which become the angels, we the traitors, and the enemies of their own wish: the fallen angels.
Of course, only the Son is God as the Father, in terms of the essence (not in terms of his freedom to shape his persona); the others become other things in their freedom. Maybe this will seem like nonsense to many, or heresy, but we know that Lucifer and his followers were angels, and look at what became of them (again, in their freedom). It is true that as men we can be pretty bad, but not as bad as the demons, at least upon arriving in the world. And besides, the Bible tells us that Lucifer (the serpent) was in heaven (Eden), where Adam and Eve were (men). How can this be if the devil rose up against God and became a fallen angel? Adam and Eve (we men) would have been angels, but betrayal brought us down (falling) all at once. It is the origin of the uprising itself which is told in the passage of Adam and Eve. For if the uprising of the fallen angel and his followers had happened before, the devil (the serpent) would no longer be in heaven and could not have tempted Adam and Eve. And if we place “Eden” on earth and not in heaven, as some say, why put the fallen angel there, if he had already fallen and Eden was perfect?


Ezekiel 28:12-17

'Son of man, raise a lament for the king of Tyre. Say to him, "The Lord Yahweh says this: You used to be a model of perfection, full of wisdom, perfect in beauty; you were in Eden, in the garden of God. All kinds of gem formed your mantle: sard, topaz, diamond, chrysolite, onyx, jasper, sapphire, garnet, emerald, and your ear-pendants and spangles were made of gold; all was ready on the day you were created.

I made you a living creature with outstretched wings, as guardian, you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked amid red-hot coals.

Your behaviour was exemplary from the day you were created until guilt first appeared in you, because your busy trading has filled you with violence and sin. I have thrown you down from the mountain of God and destroyed you, guardian winged creature, amid the coals.

Your heart has grown proud because of your beauty, your wisdom has been corrupted by your splendour. I have thrown you to the ground; I have made you a spectacle for kings.

 

This description of the fallen angel/devil places us in Eden, which, it seems clear, is heaven (winged creatures), and it is from here that we see both Adam and Eve with the apple, as well as the rebellion of Light Bearer, but simultaneously.

Returning to the origin (“primordial”) in heaven, if it had been this way, then in the Son the structure of the “wish” would have been “tested” (because of having pleased God) that gave the possibility for angels, archangels, etc.; beings created by God as free and independent wishes, made from the essence of God. The Son would have been the key to the creation of other beings in heaven.

Moving on: The betrayal occurs... He wants to save us... He makes the new creation => Man, but with the intention of testing whether this new nature of ours could contain the infinite wish of Love and thus we could be saved; of testing if this new creation would be able to receive the Spirit and hold it, even being attacked by he who destroyed the loyalty of the “wishes”, Lucifer. That is, without Jesus, there would be no world, not even men, because by overcoming sin, by testing the most burning temptation, and even renouncing the world to choose the Father, he makes possible (able –again, to please God) the structure “man” (cage plus essence) in a way similar to how he would have made possible the creation of angels and other beings in heaven. In Christ’s infinite act of love, the primordial Covenant of Love is restored, which was broken by us, between God and wishes (angels) and whose key was the only wish who remained within God, Jesus Christ. In the world we only know the covenant between God and men (= new creation with a body whose souls are wishes devoid of God), whose key is also Jesus Christ.

And so, as the key to the covenant, he tests this new structure (man) and makes it able to hold the Father once again.

Imagine a highly developed kingdom with an invincible weapon, a magnetic shield that covers the citizens of the kingdom and that those using it are protected. The shield emanates from the king and protects his people. Let us imagine a kingdom developed with an invincible weapon; a magnetic shield that passes through the citizens of the kingdom and that they are protected by it. The shield emanates from the king and protects his kind. Let us now think of two other peoples who belonged to the first kingdom but who voluntarily wanted to separate and did so (in reality one of the peoples, rabid as it was, convinced the other that out of friendship he followed him). Too late they realized that the magnetic weapon so powerful that it protected them now did not reach them, since it sprouted from the king of the kingdom himself. Thus, they end up defeated, starved and even deformed by the conditions of that planet. The king in his magnanimity wanted to save the people who did not reject him from the heart and wanted to give them another chance, but the rabid people let him know that if they do not receive the same punishment would be an injustice because the first law of the country is that all who are citizens of the kingdom must maintain love and loyalty to the king. Thus, they ask for the same preferential treatment. In order to escape injustice, the king decides to create a different country for the less traitorous, not subject to the old law of those citizens but to another similar one, and for that reason he must send his son and make him take the deformed figure of these, because the magic shield only recognizes him and until the son does not become deformed, the shield does not recognize them. So they are finally recognized, but the king's son also teaches them how to use it, because they are dying and deformed and have forgotten how to do it.

Now, this is little more than fanciful nonsense, but it can illustrate our need for Christ in whom the new creation is tested to make us able to receive the Spirit. Christ is thus the key or keystone.

And what moves God to send, to deform, His child? Infinite love. God deforms Christ to give shape to the deformation through Him. Christ becomes ugly to make the ugly beautiful. And the Holy Spirit dwells only in beauty. So God sends His own essence, Himself, in the Son (as a man!), sends His own essence in His first wish, in His Son, who has not committed any betrayal, who never left Him, and sends him because He loves us. And He does this to test the new structure, to make the new creation worthy.

Some think that Jesus Christ, as the son of God and God in essence, did not suffer during the test, which is a heresy far greater than what any good Christian will think of anything that I propose in this essay. A few essentially say, "Of course, if Jesus Christ was God, he could easily bear the cross." It is completely false. Moreover, he suffered the greatest of tests (= voluntary act of extreme love). And why was he going to suffer the test? In the section “The Cross” several reasons are described, but now I want to emphasize this one: to test whether the structure of man can receive the Holy Spirit, to make them wishes of love. Of course, Christ, God essence, receives and gives the Spirit, but Christ the Man passes the test of men, thus uniting them with God, making them worthy to join God.

This would be one reason why God really sacrificed His Son in the greatest of tests, because there was the possibility of losing him, not only as a body that He knows He can later resurrect, but as His dearest, most faithful, truest wish. For Jesus in his human nature is also tested and tempted. He is tested in extreme love as a man, in what makes “man” capable of being God's wish again, although as another wish that is different from the original, now with a body. With this in mind:

Genesis 22:9

When they arrived at the place which God had indicated to him, Abraham built an altar there, and arranged the wood. Then he bound his son and put him on the altar on top of the wood.

In the foreshadowing of Jesus Christ in Genesis, when Abraham is going to sacrifice his son Isaac, who like a lamb accepts the will of his father, Abraham is not acting crazy because he knows that God will bring him back to life even if he sacrifices him. Symbolically, Isaac is Jesus Christ, but God the Father, when He gives His Son to the world, He knows, He has Faith that he (the Son, Person -freedom-) will rise again; that is, he will remain the exact wish of the Father in his new situation, even when tempted as a man. Let's say that the Father has faith that the Son (Person) will remain ALIVE, and will remain HIS WISH (will keep the essence of God intact and keep being God) even if he is sacrificed. Fleshing out this foreshadowing: God the Father is Abraham who has Faith that the Son will rise again, that he will remain Alive (God’s essence) after the test.

In short, the Love of God for us is so great that He risked truly losing His Son. Not only allowing us to kill his body, which would have been enough considering how we tortured him, but to lose him as His wish, as His Son. If not, it would have an immeasurable value, (perhaps this is the greatest of heresies, -God forgive me-), but He would know that He would get him back when it is all over. It wouldn’t be the same. And this is because, can you imagine what would have happened if Jesus Christ (man, 2nd persona) had fallen into temptation in the desert? Or if he had not accepted the will of the Father in the olive grove? In that case, would He not have truly lost His Son, His dearest wish? Or rather, having strayed at that apex of God, he who had never deviated before, in his test of the nature of man, would he not have lost the nature of God? Wouldn’t Jesus have thus chosen to stop being the Wish (immediate, united, true...) of God? Perhaps to become an archangel, but he would no longer be the same. And so the Father (God) had Faith in his Son (Person and God essence) and the sacrifice REALLY was given, and the Son by the Father's glory (and by his free choice) was TRULY resurrected (came back as God, in the unaltered essence of God the Father, or That which did not die, as the Muslims say).

It is a sacrifice that involved not only losing the body but also the possibility of losing the wish of God, the essence. Later there is a resurrection of body and soul and above all a permanence in God as His as His wish, without separating from Him one bit; in other words, as God.

And if Jesus had not passed the test of the world, would the world make sense? Not at all, because the structure of man would not have been proven either. If Jesus, because of his love for God and man, had not willingly suffered the passion in that wonderful act of extreme love, he would not have made "man" able to contain this extreme act of love; that is, he converts man’s “nature” into a wish of God, for we, as treacherous wishes with bodies, were no longer His wishes, not anymore. It is his extreme love that makes us wishes (different ones) of love once again, able to return to His “mind”. For that reason, in him, our sins are forgiven, because he has made us worthy to be wishes (containers) of God again, this time as men (structure)

.

 

·      Christ and the Law: Why did Christ come down as a Man?

According to this, it would have been enough for Jesus Christ alone to pass the test as a man to save us all. We wouldn’t even have to have lived with him, since it is the act of love itself that makes man worthy. Once crucified, why continue with the world? We would already be saved. And this is true, but God respects our freedom. Christ gives us the opportunity to receive the Holy Spirit again, to Live again, but just like before, He will always respect our freedom. The door is already open, but we are free to approach it. We could say that Jesus Christ not only opens the door of the plane that will take us back to God the Father, but also teaches us how to fly it.

Light Bearer hated his desire for God to seek himself. Jesus, being God the Son, dies as a man for love of God the Father and mankind. And so he dignifies us as men to receive him, teaching us the way: not only to love one's neighbor as oneself (the law). He loves his neighbor (mankind) and God above himself, since he dies to save us (and no one wants death for himself); giving real and practical fulfillment to the law. He teaches us what is the essence of God, pure Love. That is the desire with which God created us, and it is the way back to His desire. Love without excuses, without self-esteem. Let us say that we were created as small entities of love free and independent of Him but in Him, in Love (this is so because we were made with a breath of His own essence, pure love). Jesus Christ is raised up to show us what we had forgotten: that we had come out of that Love capable of renouncing ourselves for our neighbor. Just as God sacrifices Himself in His Son for us. Just as He gives Himself to create us free, for only Love respects the freedom of the one who will betray Him.

 

In short, in Jesus Christ we have the ideal Being. Because becoming God's wish as we were before, now as men, is far, far away, but Christ gives us the model to follow; in a way, it's like being Christ’s wish (as God and man) this time, and in his nature of God, reaching God the Father.

If God the Father is a current of 1,000,000 volts, Christ is our transformer which, together with the Father, gives us an input of 110 V so that we can receive the current Life from Him. Without him, we could not live; we would be like unplugged appliances (in the new creation, man), dead, lifeless. And this would only be for a short time, before we would fall with Lucifer.

Imagine that the Spirit, the electricity that gives us life, arrives to us thanks to the transformer (Jesus Christ) that makes all of us able to receive it. But of course, in addition to being able, we must plug ourselves into (accept) Christ.

The Spirit then, according to this electrical example, is the energy of God transformed (adapted) to our mediocrity as men. For this reason it can also be limited by time (within the Universe, we see or feel the Spirit and the Son, not the infinite Father) and it can reach us through the transformer, even though God the Father is beyond time (infinite energy, cannot be limited and no one has seen Him).

Jesus Christ would therefore be something material, the structure of the transformer (nature of man), and in him would flow energy of God the Father which is also his (nature of God), and adapted to us. He is God and is in contact with God the Father, but he is also a man and thus he can touch us and we can connect with God the Father. We cannot touch God the Father or even look at Him (we can’t look at the sun without going blind either, or go near it). Being a man who we can touch, we reach the Father. So much so that in the Eucharist or Communion (common-union), we plug ourselves in as if to an electric grid (all together, intertwined) to the transformer which, on the one hand is man, and on the other is God, and through him to the Father.

Interestingly in this electrical example, we as men also fit because of the following definition:


"An electrical resistance (man) is a material that offers opposition to the passage of current (Spirit). When that current flows through it, it produces a dissipation of energy that can be in the form of light, heat, motion, etc. (Gifts of the Spirit). The materials that are subject to the passage of current are made to withstand a certain power (sizes of God’s wishes -“parabola of talents”-)."

Among men, before the arrival of Jesus Christ (transformer), the Spirit came to a chosen few, almost always prophets, and usually did so with “sparks” ("his face was radiant because he had been talking to Him", "The spirit of God came over Saul too, and he went along in a frenzy"...).

Let’s consider the Jewish people; they were the chosen people in which the transformer was grafted, which today ignores this grace and claims to still to receive God through those sparks. Fine, in rejecting Jesus Christ, they become what other religions are. Jesus Christ (transformer) makes all of us capable of receiving the Spirit (modulated for man’s structure, or the reverse, Jesus makes the "man" structure worthy of receiving the Spirit), but only if they are in line with his Word of Love.

But, following the electrical metaphor, before everything (universe) it wasn’t like that. Before, the infinite energy was “loose” and in His Son, He created a high-voltage network that allowed other entities (in heaven) to connect to (live in) the high-voltage, since Christ as a wish, tested the nature of wish, being on the one hand the exact Essence of God and on the other hand a creation or person shaped by his freedom. This is the “duality” which I have talking about so much. Perhaps before the world and angels, he was like a kind of high-voltage electrical adapter, which changed the high voltage from the infinite energy (God), which allowed the angels to Be, because they do not contain the exact essence of God; it’s true that they have High Voltage and not our puny 110V, but not infinite Voltage.

In us, all of its elements are somehow reproduced, but this time lowering the voltage (through Jesus Christ) because of our chosen mediocrity (derived from our betrayal)

.

 

This is why, in Jesus Christ, heaven and earth are reconciled, and also heaven with earth; this is why every knee bends before his name, in heaven, on earth and under the earth. Because he is God the Son, the Son of God. And he not only first reconciles heaven and, in his “wish” structure, the angels, archangels, etc. are created from the Son of God. Afterwards, the earth is reconciled to test the man structure so that it can also maintain the essence of God, and in doing so, he reconciles heaven “with” the earth, because before we were wishes, and on earth as “man” the lost wishes can live again.

The ultimate reason that God Himself came to save us, is that he can not be unjust. See 8.5 Justice and Redemption in Jesus Christ

 

 

 

OTHER RELIGIONS

 

4-Interreligious Meeting Point   

The Bible speaks of seven churches representing seven religions (see The Seven Spirits of God p.199). I am interested to show if this really can be so. In addition, to verify these religions as valid, proves that the redemption of Jesus is Universal, is valid for all the men, not only for the Christians. This redemption legitimates the new Nature of Man, saving us from the death we reach up there, when we pass from being heavenly nature or God's desires, to being nothing at all, empty worms of God. The confirmation of this end is also a proof of all that is said and adds logic to our world.

 

 

·      Protestantism

 

What happened when Protestantism emerged? The Church in those days was very bad because of the subject of politics and others. Perhaps the Lord made use of a “push” from a few well-meaning (but very hasty, like me) people who said, “Something must be done”; and they made the mistake of not looking before they leapt and set themselves to interpreting, as men, what the Bible meant to them individually (like what I’m doing, I admit). And while it is true that Jesus Christ is the Word of God, it’s very pretentious to think that everyone of us is going to understand it as he meant it, with its exact meaning or the different things he meant in a single word, for every era, every people, etc. It is the Word of God (infinite) and must be interpreted in the light of the Holy Spirit. That’s why Christ leaves us in the hands of Peter - in the hands of the Church.


Matthew 16:13-18

When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi he put this question to his disciples, 'Who do people say the Son of man is?'

And they said, 'Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.'

'But you,' he said, 'who do you say I am?'

Then Simon Peter spoke up and said, 'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.'

Jesus replied, 'Simon son of Jonah, you are a blessed man! Because it was no human agency that revealed this to you but my Father in heaven.

So I now say to you: You are Peter and on this rock I will build my community. And the gates of the underworld can never overpower it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven: whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.'


Even so, He uses Protestants, but for what? To save His people and give fulfillment to His word (the gates of the underworld can never overpower it), to correct the course of His people. Consider that it is not men who keep the Church in God, but God Himself by the Holy Spirit. If some angels became crooked up there, imagine us here as men, crooked already, how we might become crooked again.

And why does God allow this? Because He would rather have part of us diverted and the stone rooted in place, than to have us all dead.

But I know that God loves Protestants too. They have become self-educated as to the Faith, and they muddle along. If Jesus Christ is the head of the Church, we might say that they have dismembered themselves from her, but I still believe the Spirit reaches them.

They, I as far as I can tell, think that one only needs to believe in Jesus Christ for salvation, and they don’t necessarily need to perform “works” (of Faith) to get to heaven, which is certainly questionable. All we have to do is look at the Holy Spirit - the grace of God which sometimes fills us and flees from sin. I would argue that it is this that leads us to paradise, and not just after death, but here on earth, as you can already live in heaven. And I ask you, if today I am blissfully accompanied but in my weakness I sin and the Holy Spirit leaves me, have I stopped believing in Jesus Christ? No. I stumbled, however; I was emptied of life. The “doing” is determinant in the permanence of the Spirit, doing both good and bad. And the fallen angels who saw God, did they not believe in Him? Yes, and look where they ended up because of what they did. Who could argue that demons or Lucifer do not believe in God? It’s not just about believing, or at least not an empty belief.

Perhaps they think this because of this passage:


John 3:17-21

For God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but so that through him the world might be saved.

No one who believes in him will be judged; but whoever does not believe is judged already, because that person does not believe in the Name of God's only Son.

And the judgment is this: though the light has come into the world people have preferred darkness to the light because their deeds were evil.

And indeed, everybody who does wrong hates the light and avoids it, to prevent his actions from being shown up;

but whoever does the truth comes out into the light, so that what he is doing may plainly appear as done in God.'


According to what has been said so far, it is clear that Jesus came to save us because we are those who in our freedom have fallen from heaven and we are dead (without the Holy Spirit until his passion). Therefore without God’s intervention, we are already dead, judged (if we do not believe in Jesus Christ, we do not grab the hand that God extends to get us out of the hole).

If we consider Lucifer to be the prince of the world, and that he is here so that we can exercise our freedom to choose, not believing in Jesus Christ is to stay with the world, its prince and his idols. If you don’t believe in Jesus Christ, you are not aware that He is our salvation; you don’t seek him out and will continue your life in the world, in death. But, as I said, we’re not talking about an empty belief. We’re talking about finding life here in the world, filling ourselves with the Holy Spirit. There are many people today who, when you ask them, they say, “Yeah... sure there’s a higher being out there,” so nonchalantly, without looking any further. In fact, agnosticism considers understanding the absolute or infinite, God in particular, to be inaccessible to humans. It doesn’t deny God as atheism does, just that, “if I can’t understand it, why should I investigate it or even think about it?” And again, they are so nonchalant. They don’t know what is at stake.

Well, those who claim that there is a higher being, but they don’t know because blah, blah, blah..., they believe in God, but in an empty way. Believing in Jesus Christ is to live in Jesus Christ, in the world, in our relationships. It is part of the body of Jesus Christ, the Church whose head is Jesus and that is built on the stone foundation: the apostle Peter.

When it says No one who believes in him will be judged, it refers to a whole, to believe in Jesus and what he says, in keeping his Word:


John 12:47-48

If anyone hears my words and does not keep them faithfully, it is not I who shall judge such a person, since I have come not to judge the world, but to save the world:

anyone who rejects me and refuses my words has his judge already: the word itself that I have spoken will be his judge on the last day.


In short, Christ comes to fix the mold and now all men can receive the Holy Spirit, but it up to us to follow him; believing without following would be like really seeing him, but watching him go without following behind.

It is true that the devil has poisoned the water to catch more fish and no longer uses a rod, which, unfortunately, has caused many to stay away from God, thinking that following Him is something more or less old-fashioned. But this is the test. Today when people openly call themselves Catholics, it’s because they are (or at least try to be). A Muslim in his community might be afraid to say the opposite: that he does not believe in Allah or doesn’t follow that religion, so it may be the case that they themselves are living in an uninhabited castle or surrounded by “infidels” as they say. Which, in the end, is always a victory for the devil, because, if they seek God in their uneasiness and do it from a place of love, they will find heaven.

And that's the real test. The test is not to win the world. Nor is it to kill another because he has attacked you, which even dogs will do; if one bites another, it will bite back. Like animals, we come from the law of retaliation, but Christ makes everything new. Through him, we evolve.

Something that Protestants throw in our face as Catholics is they say that we “worship” the Virgin Mary. I would assume that when they say this it is out of ignorance, since we do not worship her, but we do venerate her. We worship God alone and know that she is not God, but she is a wonderful medium to reach Him.

In the same way, they say they we worship the saints and their images, when neither is true. When you look at a photo of your child with appreciation, you're not thinking about the paper and ink, but what it represents. It’s not the same to invent a figure to idolize. The Saints are mediators of grace, and knowing that the apostles worked miracles, because I think that they admit that much, isn’t this fact obvious?


Acts 5:15

so that the sick were even taken out into the streets and laid on beds and sleeping-mats in the hope that at least the shadow of Peter might fall across some of them as he went past.


Do not the apostles act as mediators? It was God who cured the sick through them, not them alone. If they had not approached the apostles, would He have given them the miracle? Certainly not in the same way and at the same time; one can never say what the Lord would have done or what He will do, but it seems pretty clear.

And seeing this reading of Acts 5:15, doesn’t it seem that it’s in the Bible precisely to discern this that we talked about? Nothing is written by chance. It says that at least the shadow of Peter might fall across some of them. The shadow, not the body, as if were sufficient or valid to ask for the intercession of the spirit of the saints (in prayer) to get it.

It is also curious that Muslims believe in the Virginity of Mary and they do not. Maybe sometimes in looking for the logic of everything, we end up removing the Divinity from God.

What I write now it is known by most Catholics, but I will extend it with what you can find on the internet. It’s very interesting.


↓↓ Internet. Based on Wikipedia.org ↓↓

-    Protestants believe that Jesus had brothers because the Bible names Jesus as the “firstborn”, that is, “the first son of Mary” and that means that Mary had more children.

Jesus being the “firstborn” doesn’t mean that the Virgin Mary had more children after Jesus. “And she gave birth to a son, her first-born” (Luke 2:7) means that “Before Jesus was born, the Virgin had not had another child.” And this was essential for the Jews, because being the firstborn, the first son, Jesus would have been completely dedicated to God (Exodus 13:2), since the Law of the Lord commanded that the first son was consecrated or offered completely to God (Ex. 13:12 and Ex. 34:19). Being the firstborn was like having a label saying “consecrated to God”, and that is what is meant by firstborn.

-    The Bible names four “brothers” of Jesus (Matthew 13:55-56).

In this reading we find the names of four “brothers” of Jesus: James, Joses (or Joseph), Simon and Judas. Of these brothers of Jesus above, two were apostles: James, “the brother of the Lord” (Galatians 1:19) is the Apostle James “the Younger” (Mark 15:40.), and Judas, “servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James”.

The mother of the Apostle James the Younger is named Mary, and this Mary, mother of James and Joseph, stood by the Jesus’ cross (Mark 15:40) and was “sister of Mary the Mother of Jesus” (John 19:25) and aunt of Jesus. She is who the evangelists call Mary of Clopas (John 19:25).

Comparing the biblical texts to each other, it is clear that neither James nor the other three named “brothers of Jesus” were sons of the Virgin Mary and Joseph, but cousins ​​of Jesus.

Therefore:

Joseph (putative father) + Mary = Jesus

(Alpheus or Cleophas) ​​+ Mary = James, Joseph, Simon and Judas.

 

- In Aramaic, “brother” means relative (the same word is used to express different degrees of close kinship, such as cousin, brother, uncle, nephew, second cousin).

 

Gospel of Matthew 13:55-56

This is the carpenter's son, surely? Is not his mother the woman called Mary, and his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Jude?

His sisters, too, are they not all here with us? So where did the man get it all?'


Other cases where this is confirmed: Abraham called his nephew Lot “brother” (Genesis 13:8 and Genesis 14:14-16), Laban calls his nephew Jacob “brother” (Genesis 29:15).

For example, in the Bible the word “nephew” does not exist, but those who are descended from the same grandfather are called brothers. In Genesis 14:12, some translations say nephew when others say: son of Abraham’s brother; the word nephew only appears twice and is by translation. The words uncle or cousin are not often used.

Then to avoid confusion, the Bible uses various modifications. For example, in the case of true brothers, sons of the same mother, the expression was used, “Your mother and your mother’s sons.” This was the only correct way to express it. Hence the frequent use of the phrase “son of” => “Simon, son of Jonah” specifies that Simon’s father is Jonas.

In the Bible, no brother of Jesus appears in the flesh because nowhere in the Gospel are “children of Mary”.

 

-    In the Gospel of Luke it is written that Jesus went to Jerusalem with Mary and Joseph. The child Jesus was 12 years old. This story does not mention any brother of Jesus in the strict sense. What follows then is that Jesus is the only son of Mary (Luke 2:41-52). It could have been the case that family was left out, which is not usual, if had it said: he went with his parents.

 

-    On the cross, Jesus entrusted his mother Mary to the apostle John, son of Zebedee, because Mary was alone, without children of her own and no husband; otherwise, it would be an intrusion to his hypothetical brothers (for Jews, a woman who was alone was a sign of malediction, so Jesus entrusts Mary to John and also John to Mary).


Gospel of John 19:26-27

Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, 'Woman, this is your son.'

Then to the disciple he said, 'This is your mother.' And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

The tranquility that we Catholics have is the passage from the beginning, especially ‘the gates of the underworld can never overcome it’.


The Catholic Church has been the most persecuted in history *1, but against God nobody can win. This persecution, which today there are many martyrs who die for their faith, also extends to the “civilized” West, where Catholics especially are looked down upon and where the media scratches us out of anything. And this is what we are called to by the will of God. Why? Because salt, as they say, has to fall apart and die in order to be salty. And just a pinch of salt is enough to give good flavor to a dish; notice that One “validated” man and made him edible or conceivable for God the Father and His Spirit. Indeed, not everyone is called to be salt. If we were, God would not be cooking trying to save this disastrous concoction which we have become; we would be in His pantry all together in the salt shaker (how we were at the beginning – that’s what I believe). Perhaps those who doubted the least as wishes, those who are open to His Word, are called to be salt.

Protestants sought logic, as do I and as I think deep down we all do, but they dumb things down and eventually change things. If we say that the world, in its apparent sufficiency, is a fool for looking only at its logical laws without knowing how to see God, in a way they took some of that foolishness. As I said, it seems that they took divinity away from God to seek explanations from the world.


And I say this with regret, because they lose an invaluable aid (of which I would emphasize the Holy Eucharist *2), that God has given us to fight against evil.

 

NOTE (*1). The Catholic Church has been persecuted since its inception. Here, I put some data that I have taken from the book 'Para Salvarse. Author Jorge Loring' (who accurately cites references).

During the Roman Empire (1200 years), it suffered persecution 249 years in which more than 100,000 martyrs died.

Hitler (National Socialism) and Stalin (Marxism) persecuted the Catholic Church (both emerged from the Left of Hegel, where the State takes precedence over the person and their dignity).

In the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), nearly ten thousand martyrs.

The Cardinal Swiatek arrested by the KGB, imprisoned in Minsk for ten years of forced labor in Siberia, says: Stalin eliminated 90% of priests.

By order of Stalin, seven million Ukrainians died of starvation, just because of being Catholic.

In Soviet Russia, fourteen thousand temples were closed. In Moscow, in just one year (1935), eleven million atheist books were printed. And yet in Russia, after 79 years of Communist persecution, the Apostolic Orthodox Catholic Church persists.

The genocide of almost two million Christian Armenians by the Ottomans in 1914.

The persecution of Christians in Muslim lands today, where they are considered inferior, in some cases forced to wear a sign on their skin or their houses are marked, when they are not killed or exiled.


         NOTE (* 2). With respect to not recognizing the Holy Eucharist, see The Holy Spirit is Spirit (p. 42).

 

·       Islam

 

 

 

 

As I said, to verify religions other than Christianity as valid, proves that the redemption of Jesus (the only man who has not been conceived by another man, nor dead, according to the Holy Quran) is Universal, that is valid for all men. Because Jesus dignifies all Nature of Man, not only Christians. As I was saying, Jesus is a created person who contains the Exact Essence of God, not like us who can maintain the Holy Spirit in some measure. He is the firstborn (before the first death) by whom all things were created; we were his brothers in creation, not in the Exact Essence of God contained.

First of all, to affirm that Islam is a valid religion to reach God, because it teaches mercy and not hatred as few believe. What else would Allāh teach, the compassionate, the merciful? Also clarify that the Sakina, or state of tranquility of Muslims, is when they are filled in some measure, the Holy Spirit, even if they do not define it as such. That Sakina is the equivalent of our state of grace, which can be more or less intense the greater or lesser the 'content' of the Holy Spirit (this will be explained later). Furthermore, they think that the betrayal was performed in heaven (Eden) by each of us personally by breaking an oath (the equivalent of our apple forbidden by God). In this I believe they are ahead of us, because as I have shown (or am in it), Adam and Eve represent all of us.

I have had the interest to read the Quran and I have seen that they refer to the Torah and the Gospels as “books containing Guidance and Light” (Surah 5:44 to 46 and others). However, much of its “revelations” seem to speak in imperative, almost always referring to the fear of God. What accompanies this, of course, is what happens to one who does not fear God (infidels). The Gospels also speak of fear of God, but mostly center on the Love of God. I think that God does indeed speak to people according to their understanding of these. It’s not that Christians are more clever. We were told: as your person can "partially" keep God, there is an unsolvable mystery: The Holy Trinity (one God and three persons) and we believed it. I don’t teach my children the same way although I want to teach them in the same direction (not the same as it depends on what each of them can understand). For a two-year-old who is about to jump out the 4th floor window, I would spank their bottom a few times so they wouldn’t do it again and thus avoid  their death, because they may not understand reasoning. An older child can reason with things. And I love them both equally.

  Thus, Jesus Christ is made here different from all men also for Muslims, since he is not born of man and "they believed that they crucified him, but it was not so, but it seemed to them... God took him to Himself", He does not die. Jesus is the one who first pleased before the first death, the principle by which all others were created. He tasted the heavenly nature: created person capable of containing God. What the Bible hid and I have shown you (or will show you later), and unites us to the main creeds as brothers of different ages who are taught in the same direction in a different way, is fascinatingly logical: After our betrayal in heaven, we die as we were (1st death). Our life as men is part of our salvation attempt by Allah, God. And why do so? Because He cannot deny Himself, He who is, cannot be injustice; because of all of us who broke the oath, there were some who hated (serpents, here, demons), others ('Adams') did so because of the love they felt for the Eve who convinced them (the 'Eve' listened and wished like the demons even though they did not hate). Thus, God could not save some and not others without claiming injustice, for we all betray; and He cannot live with hatred. So those who hated, the fallen angels, were not given a body, though they are among us. But for this, the founding principle of the creation of heaven, had to please also in the new nature, and thus make it valid to receive Allah as in the beginning, but without reaching us the old justice.  Justice and Redemption in Jesus Christ, p. 161, to understand it. Justice and Redemption in Jesus Christ p. 161, to understand it.

 

Jesus speaks of the Love God has for us and tells us that we are the ones who, in our freedom, condemn us (actually because we are already dead here in the world and by getting closer to God –to Allāh– we find Life here and there). The betrayal we already had in the Garden to listen to the devil and eat the apple or break the oath, we come already dead to the world, His love tries to recover us despite our sin. Jesus does not come to judge us (we have already fallen to the world by our own weight) but to save all mankind (through those 7 paths or religions that have been given to us, and thanks to Christ we can be filled again with God, whose main foundation is Love and mercy). He speaks of Love above oneself. He speaks of making everything new, the abolition of the law of retaliation, of forgiveness and loving our enemy. The Holy Quran continually speaks of God's mercy, although I perceive that it often speaks in an imperative tone. And it really is good to seek God for fear of hell, but I think it's a joy to know that you are loved by Him and to seek Him because it gives you Life (truly) here in the world, because it fills you up. I know many Muslims feel this Life within themselves. And in this happiness, and knowing that God is merciful, why not go further? Where does His mercy come from? From love, never hatred or revenge, because mercy is to love the “miserable”, the wretched (different from you, if not, we would think that it is about loving our equal).

Anyway, to think that we are high enough to fully recognize the Word of God, I think is something pretentious at the very least. In one of the Surahs that separates us the most and among the toughest I've found, the 9th, at the end the reciprocity of attack is highlighted; that is to say self-defense, something also permitted by the Catholic catechism.

 

 Surah 9. At-Tawba (The Repentance).

5. And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush...

13. Would you not fight a people who broke their oaths and determined to expel the Messenger, and they had begun [the attack upon] you the first time?

36. ... And fight against the disbelievers collectively as they fight against you collectively. And know that Allah is with the righteous who fear Him.

 

However:

 

Surah 2. Al-Baqarah (The Cow).

62. Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans, those who believed in God and the Last Day and did righteousness - will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they

grieve.

 

 

Which, to me, confirms that this is indeed open to interpretation, as even the Catholic catechism accepts self-defense.

And thinking objectively: If God allows us so many chances to change, even if we are sinners; if when we betrayed Him in heaven (Adam, Eve and the apple -or the broken oath for Muslims), He did not destroy us, which He could have done (obliterating us); if He could destroy all sinners, infidels, etc. with a thought, then doesn’t it seem clear that He loves us and wants us all, in our freedom, to save ourselves? Or what do we believe? That He couldn’t get rid of the devil in a single blow? Of course He could, but without temptation there is no freedom to choose between good and evil. He allows the devil to whisper in our ears.

And I say, isn’t it about time we came to an understanding? If you’re Muslim and you have really felt God within you, like many of us have[1], don’t you think that what we have in common is God Himself?



[1] Some signs (not gifts or fruits) by which we can recognize someone who has the Holy Spirit:

- He is always happy; he may be shattered by the world, but the suffering does not kill him. He can sometimes go deep into contemplation of the Holy Spirit Itself.

- When he is in good standing with It and has left his old self (has lots of the Holy Spirit), he tends to walk with both hands on his belly, reflexively guarding the treasure that is inside (note that the Spirit does not live with sin and we lose It often). Also, going with one hand over the other, gives us the feeling of caressing something good, and you can almost feel the Spirit Itself if It is with us.

- He is easy to relate to. Although the person in question may not be extroverted, when he possesses the Spirit, it is easier to approach him, to relate to him.

 

The Islam is another great monotheistic religion, also descendants of our father Abraham. They think that the Quran is the immutable word of God, that you cannot change what God says. And on that point we agree; it’s not the word of God that changes, but men’s understanding. Like mathematics in the first year of elementary school or the first semester of any engineering degree. Now, teach a three-year-old to solve an integral or a square root, for example.

The Holy Quran is the Word of God adapted to the understanding of a people, and also recognizes Jesus Christ, saying he is not born of man, nor is he “dead”; it doesn’t go any further because more could not be understood. They believe that Christians think Jesus is a god, when that is not so. There is only one God, the same who is in our spirit (of all of us) when we are in grace, although we can only hold a blurred image of Him because we are impure; not so with Jesus Christ. We precariously tune in to the “God station” and His “waves” penetrate us (just as an example), Jesus speaks to us from the source itself.

After our betrayal in heaven, God waited patiently for us to once again fill ourselves with Love, with Him. But aware of what happened and conscious of God, because of fear, not freedom, we agree to simulate this fraternal love among us all (see the Tower of Babel, in 7. Logically p. 218), so He decides to muddle our understanding. To become invisible and draw us separate paths to salvation (religions) to shape our person to freely renounce the world and choose God. But what underlies all these paths or religions is Love. Love, compassion and the mercy of God, which we are called to embrace and make ours to give to others. Of course, everything is done through Jesus Christ, as I have said a hundred times, but this doesn’t really matter for these nations, as all men now have potential salvation (as a nature saved or validated to contain God) thanks to him. Of course, being that Love is the base, or the spirit of everything, he who does not have Love will not reach that destination. Thus, religions are a good direction that covers an entire horizon, but the door is very narrow: it is love that consists of giving yourself for others and for God; Love is giving oneself, not taking. And this is not only true for Muslims; it says this clearly in the gospel in a reading that I will discuss later. Without love we are nothing; even if we martyr ourselves for God, if we do not love, we are nothing. It is also written: “Not everyone who says ‘Lord, Lord’ will be saved”. What I mean is that, while it is true that the Jews were the chosen people, He also gives them the amendment: no eye for an eye, because in the end it boils down to love, even for the enemy; it is also the case that your enemy can be your wife or your boss or your neighbor. All branches or early religions set by God are renewed by love, including the Muslim religion, which viewed from a perspective of love is very different than a view from hatred or simply from the world. Why did God plan it that way? Because before our nature as “man” was God's wish, we could not contain His Spirit and without the Spirit it is incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to renounce oneself in favor of others. Christ makes everything new, for all men of all faiths. And why different religions? Most of all to respect our freedom, to become invisible and embroil our understanding so that we do not act out of fear but out of freedom. But also because, although He is one, we are different from before the first death. He teaches us according to our ability, and asks of us no more than we can do. As if we were of different ages, so has the way of mercy taught us. He wanted us to be jealous of our paths at least until the veil of our eyes was lifted, which would be near the end (now?). Perhaps for this moment we will unite in God's will, and in His will we will be an example to the deaf. Only He knows.

So, it is God's will that there are different religions. It is part of the confusion that makes us really decide freely, without fear of a certain and visible God, where we would have no choice but to believe. Freedom then, is not really in believing in one religion or another, because depending on what family you are born in, you’ll surely only have one option (which would be an injustice to God who is providing, which is impossible). Freedom is to believe in God without Him present, hence there different valid paths to get there, although they all move only with love, with renouncing oneself, renouncing of the world for God.

However, the Muslim religion is something special, in the sense that its holy book refers to other religions. Of course, if one does not rise up to see God's wonderful design, any other way than ours will be unfaithful, all the more so if we do not listen to that underlying letter of the Koran and to the other ways, Love and mercy. But does it really mean non-Muslims when it speaks of infidels? Can a woman who is not married to you and does not know you be unfaithful? No. Rather an apostate Muslim would be an infidel, but I go further, I think it refers in general to the deaf of all nations, the same distinction that the Bible continually makes: Adam, those who listen, facing Eve, deaf who only listen to the world or demons, first infidels, sons of God facing daughters of men, birds facing cattle ... It does not contradict the Holy Koran when it foretells a good end for Christians, Jews and you know that they do well, and predicts a bad end for the infidels. In fact, when he speaks badly of Christians, Jews ... is usually for, among these groups, highlight something that do wrong some of them (It would be interesting if you read Appendix II. Letter to a Muslim p. 358). I am not going to insist on the issue of visible self-defense especially in the Suras of repentance (which, as has already been seen, is also permitted by Catholics), which can easily be misinterpreted. What is certain is that everything was thus thought by God to teach us according to our capacity and respecting our freedom.

Well, at this point of course, we are not talking about converting any of these religions, but about living them in the true and profound sense of these, mercy, love of neighbor and God, Allah, above all things; of living our religion from the knowledge of God. The Muslim, like what he is, but each one aware that he has an older brother who has tasted this body of man, made him fit to receive God, Allah in our interior, because before our first death we did not have this body. To know that Christ is our elder brother in everything and the only one capable of containing the Holy Spirit in His maximum intensity, does not deny the Muslim way; one of the seven true paths sent by God for our salvation. A path made for some, not for all, because each path is prepared for our different capacities, but all directed towards the same place, love and mercy=> towards God, towards Allah. This knowledge of God will be understood by the deaf as well and the revelation of this knowledge among those of us who hear of all religions will allow us to see ourselves among ourselves as brothers, children of the same God.

Thus, for when this moment of union of all religions and all men in what one day was, would leave said to Muslims that Jesus Christ is a prophet, that his mother, the Virgin Mary is immaculate and her child was not conceived by any man, that is, that he was not born of man, nor did he die according to the Quran (which is true for the person of Christ who, after the cross, continues being God does not die as such). This which, by itself, would not be comprehensible by a Muslim (that Jesus was a prophet who was not born of man and did not die), there will come a time when it will be understood, when they recognize not only that Jesus Christ was the first wish as a person, but that we are all brothers among us and of Him in the nature of a person, not in the nature of God (Essence of God or Holy Spirit contained), although in the beginning we were made in the image and likeness of God, because we kept a breath of his essence. So in the Quran they speak of the miracles of Jesus, not of his teachings, because to do so would be teaching them what they could not understand or perhaps what God did not want to reveal, in order to continue this confusion for our sake, because revealing it to everyone equally would perhaps undo the confusion of Babel consciously made by Him, again, for our sake; so we could fill ourselves with God, freely, without Him being visible; without real fear or consciousness of Him.

Having said all that, I will now discuss Islam in particular to see what hidden things we have in common. To begin with, as I said, it is interesting that they admit that Jesus is a prophet not conceived by man and do not continue with the thought: by whom is he conceived, beyond Saint Gabriel? For what reason, beyond Mary...? He would be the only prophet conceived by God and not dead (via archangel according to them, they do not know or have not named the Holy Spirit, although that is what they feel within themselves when they are in grace, which makes them feel “big inside” or calm in the Sakina).

They believe that Jesus is not God because God is the omnipotent Creator of the Universe... Well, Jesus the person is God's creation as it is this freedom that has been wrapped around “part” of His essence (let's say..., although this is not correct). It is the essence of God that he (Jesus) maintains, unchanged, that is still God => If it’s easier, think of it this way: that he is the greatest free and independent wish of God who, in not separating from Him, remains in Him and continues being Him. Without being God the Father, he comes from Him and remains in Him, being God. The ocean is the ocean and the river, river and both are water, and we cannot compare an ocean with a river except by that from which they are formed: the water itself. But as I said, let’s look within ourselves and feel our spirit when we are in grace, filled with Him. Doesn’t it seem that we are in full communion with Him? Doesn’t it seem that we are God's wishes? Totally watered down, of course, by our broken oath or original sin (we doubted Him in listening to the devil) which made us leave the Garden of Eden to reach the world as men (we ceased to be close wishes of God – not exact, since that is Jesus - to empty ourselves of His wish, to stop being His wish, to stop Being). We reached the world as small bags with a capacity of one or two drops of that water (steam in our case) and when we are in grace, we are filled. And can we compare this droplet of water to a river or an ocean? No. Except by the water from which they are formed. We are all called to become children of God again. The wonderful thing about this is that He loves us so much that He sent His created “river”, with His same Water of Life, to repair our leaky bags so we could again be filled with Him. The river, even coming from the sea, comes from heaven and opens a path through the hard ground that soaks our dry remains after evaporation (original sin or broken oath) so they may return to the sea.

They also speak of our departure from the garden because of listening to the devil which, again, makes us think of the theory that we were God’s wishes before becoming men, as this essay recounts. Original sin brings us to the world, and here we are tested in order to ONCE AGAIN become God's wish (fill ourselves with the Spirit, fill ourselves with life again). Surahs 2:46, or 5:6 or 11:34, etc. (Quran) speak of “returning”. Surah 19:65-72 could also speak of us before we emptied ourselves and were reined in by God in our fall: men.

 

As I said, only God knows, because if you look at the scriptures:

 

Gospel of Matthew 22:2-14

'The kingdom of Heaven may be compared to a king who gave a feast for his son's wedding.

He sent his servants to call those who had been invited, but they would not come.

Next he sent some more servants with the words, "Tell those who have been invited: Look, my banquet is all prepared, my oxen and fattened cattle have been slaughtered, everything is ready. Come to the wedding."

But they were not interested: one went off to his farm, another to his business,

and the rest seized his servants, maltreated them and killed them.

The king was furious. He dispatched his troops, destroyed those murderers and burnt their town.

Then he said to his servants, "The wedding is ready; but as those who were invited proved to be unworthy,

go to the main crossroads and invite everyone you can find to come to the wedding."

So these servants went out onto the roads and collected together everyone they could find, bad and good alike; and the wedding hall was filled with guests.

When the king came in to look at the guests he noticed one man who was not wearing a wedding garment,

and said to him, "How did you get in here, my friend, without a wedding garment?" And the man was silent.

Then the king said to the attendants, "Bind him hand and foot and throw him into the darkness outside, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth."

For many are invited but not all are chosen.'

 

 

 

This parable seems to be directed not only to the Jews, who could be the first guests, but to anyone in general who is created with the greatest of rights, including Catholics. For many call themselves Christians and then do not act as such.

This parable seems to say that, in the end, all that will matter is to be dressed in the Holy Spirit (God, Allah in you), have It within you (to then ascend attracted by God). That would be the wedding garment.

    And I also believe that an indigenous person on a remote island, ignorant of the Word of God (whether in the Torah, the Gospels, the Quran, etc.), if he leads a life based in love, he will be in God's grace.

But for that, he would really have to be “good”, and as we know, we are worse than rotten garlic, so it’s good to have instructions to see if, at least by flying the kite, we’re able to catch some air, some of the Holy Spirit.

In addition, keep in mind that, until one steps into the light, no defects or sins can be seen. And we think that we’re wonderful because everything is justification for us and judgment for others.

And if this indigenous person was a righteous man, if he finds salvation it would be through Jesus Christ. First, because he has made the “man” structure able to contain the Spirit, and secondly by the mercy of God. It doesn’t matter if he doesn’t know Him, not even through hearsay.

So, after adding up all these caveats one thing is clear: just as God speaks to us in the understanding of men, often the devil steps in to cloud our understanding. The language of the Quran can be understood as a direct, clear and expeditious way to teach something to a more pragmatic and less “dreamy or idealist” culture, for someone with both feet on the ground. Perhaps it was a message from God for tough people, with hard customs... It could be a way to teach that community that we should put God ahead of the world, but I think that teachings that are induced by fear (spanking the child who is about to jump out the window) also serve to save. Yes, some of them don’t know the big secret: love above all; but I believe, as I said, that many others have deduced that love that underlies the scriptures of the Holy Quran when it speaks of His mercy, compassion, and forbearance (mentioned more than 500 times), when it speaks of mercy to the poor, hospitality, and standards of justice. What is abundantly clear is that those who are killing people in the name of “jihad” are completely clouded by Lucifer. And when we cling to a rule and don’t understand its spirit – Love and mercy – we can betray its very foundation. This also happened to leaders of the Christian Inquisition and is happening now to all these fanatics (Jihadists) that the devil has deceived. And something else that seems clear is that they will not be martyrs, but martyred for all eternity at the hands of the one who duped them, if they do not repent before death. And this will happen even though God loves them as He loves all of us, for He loves them even if they are murderers, but our freedom is what decides whether we fill ourselves with hate or love (Satan the separator is the father of hatred) and God does not want slaves, as He would be denying Himself and He is the one who Is. Men’s understanding is not the same as it was 1400 years ago; back then, ignorance was an excuse, for Christian inquisitors too, I suppose, but not anymore. We can’t let ourselves be fooled anymore, at least in the grand scheme of things. We fall into his deceptions when we sin, unfortunately, but living as they do is to make the devil our sole advisor, to supplant God's justice which is guided by Love. In reference to this, even readings of the Quran, such as the one noted earlier, speak of self-defense, which is even permitted by the Catholic catechism. And killing a civilian because someone killed an Arab on the other side of the world is not self-defense. Although this is obvious (if it weren’t, they would be killing Arabs all over the world) it has to be explained to some people today. On the other hand, appealing to common sense, if you kill an “infidel” don’t you send him to the devil? So in whose service are you really? The one whom you will end up with, for I assure you that if God wanted to, He would obliterate all the “infidels” of the world with a single breath. They mix politics with religion, and when today countries are attacked (Arab against Arab or Arab against 'Western') for political reasons (resources, power, etc...) they falsely argue holy war, when no one is attacked for their religion. In fact, the leaders of many nations have long ignored their own religion, not even on a personal level. The test of this world is to be merciful to others. That is what is difficult and what God teaches us, the One who is merciful par excellence. The easy thing is to hate, or simply to be selfish and disregard one's neighbor, which is what Iblis tempts us to do. Uniting politics with religion has several problems; one is this, that any discrepancy, or fight in the world can be blamed on your religion. Another is that, through politics, you end up forcing your citizens to profess Islam, when we know that Allah has made us free. If not, what would be the merit of being a Muslim or a Christian? If Allah had wanted to force us, He would have done it directly by blinking. On the other hand, there are things about the Shari'a (which, I believe, connects religion with civil life), which for me contradict each other. On the one hand, the Quran speaks of hospitality and on the other of the struggle against the Infidel. As I have already said, this is a struggle for self-defense and even as I explain in "Appendix II. Letter to a Muslim p.358", when it speaks of the infidel, refers more to those who renounce Islam (because they know Islam) and in general to the deaf and in some places to the invisible demons that live with us. But put in the first two options, if the Quran teaches us mercy why to charge money to someone who is not like you. And if we put ourselves on the other side, does the money invalidate those Suras that misinterpreted can be understood as persecution of the unfaithful? And if really, as I maintain, and as Sura 9,29 seems to confirm, those are misinterpreted, why do it if there is no longer a fight against your religion? Do you charge all of you who are Muslim only apparently and sometimes not even apparently? Before, there were even kidnappings and payments of liberation taxes, because there was a war of religions. Not today. If there were, Muslims in Europe would pay tribute, or they would be expelled, or the construction of mosques would not be allowed... Europe, although today it has lost much, because there is much deafness, has its roots in the mercy that announces Christianity, the same that announces Islam.



 

Jihad

Jihad as "Holy War" is established as "Defense of Islam". Today, as I say, no one but a few false Muslims attacks religious freedom. God allowed the holy war because He wanted to keep separate paths that run parallel in the same direction (towards the mercy of which He is a father, Surah 5,69). The real value of Jihad is our inner struggle to stay in the grace of God. Our real struggle against temptations and demons that, although they are not seen, constantly lurk us (more to those who are closer to God). If compassion, mercy, and God's indulgence in the Holy Quran are mentioned more than 500 times, only the word hate comes 11 times and none in the mouth of God, not even in the mouth of the prophet:    =>[1]   

 



[1] Any translation of Arabic is considered an “interpretation” of the Quran. I have listed the word "hate" in Quran in Spanish, but in English it sometimes changes to "malice", or other words. I think the background is the same but an Arabic speaker will know better.

They speak of hatred as something bad:

 

Surah 3,118; Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their hearts conceal is worse…

Surah 5,2;    And let not the hatred of people who barred you from the Sacred Mosque incite you to aggression.…

Surah 5,8;    and let not the hatred of a certain people prevent you from acting justly. Adhere to justice, for that is nearer to piety, and fear God.

Surah 5,14;   And from those who say, “We are Christians,” We received their pledge, but they neglected some of what they were reminded of. So We provoked enmity and hatred among them until the Day of Resurrection; God will then inform them of what they used to craft.

(Surah 5,64) Resembling previous one with the Jews. It seems to say that among non-Muslims it arouses hatred among them (not towards them).

With regard to these last two, it is worth noting the Surah 5.69 already mentioned, which goes right after:

Surah 5,69: Those who believe, and the Jews, and the Sabians, and the Christians—whoever believes in God and the Last Day, and does what is right—they have nothing to fear, nor shall they grieve.

Surah 5,91; Satan wants to provoke strife and hatred among you through intoxicants and gambling, and to prevent you from the remembrance of God, and from prayer.Will you not desist?

Surah 47,29; Or do those in whose hearts is a disease deem that Allah will not bring to light their (secret) hates?

Surah 47,36; The life of this word is nothing but play and pastime. But if you have faith and lead a righteous life, He will grant you your rewards, and He will not ask you for your possessions. (37) If He should ask you for it and insist, you turn stingy, and brings forth your malice.

 

Case apart, and only exception, is this:

 

Surah 60,4 You have had an excellent example in Abraham and those with him; when they said to their people, “We are quit of you, and what you worship apart from God. We denounce you. Enmity and hatred has surfaced between us and you, forever, until you believe in God alone.” Except for the words of Abraham to his father, “I will ask forgiveness for you, though I have no power from God to do anything for you.” “Our Lord, in You we trust, and to You we repent, and to You is the ultimate resort.

 

In this Surah, and given the context of the rest of the Quran, I understand that it praises Abraham's rejection of polytheism. It is not an "active" hatred. Abraham was not chasing his polytheistic contemporaries with a knife in his hand.

Important is not to take the Surahs out of context because we could find this too that seems to be directed at the false Jihadists:

 

Surah 16,61 Now if God were to take men to task for all the evil that they do, He would not leave a single living creature upon its face. However, He grants them respite until a term set but when the end of their term approaches, they can neither delay it by a single moment, nor can they hasten it.  (Asad )

                   (62) They attribute to Allah what they themselves hate. Their tongues mouth the lie that they will have a good reward. Let there be no doubt: the only thing they will have is hell, and they will be sent ahead of the others. (Malik)

 

This Surah seems to speak precisely to the false Muslims (misnamed Jihadists) who hate; When God is meek and merciful. It is we who choose indifference, He patiently waits for us to return to His mercy. And is it really out of context so interpreted? Is there more impiety than that of a false jihadist who shoots men, women, and children, with no cause of self-defense (or religion to be attacked) and attributing his hatred to God? Perhaps others commit such impieties, which is certain is that as Surah says, even if they pretend the best, they will have the Fire and they first will go. And with these, those who twisted the verses of the merciful, indulgent, meek and Holy Quran to cloud the understanding of those whom they led. As God is merciful, forgiving and meek, how can the Quran not be? Beware of you (False ones too) Salafists, for your fault is worse than that of your followers and you will receive the same punishment because there is no greater. Serious sins are the sins of all of you:

-        Supplant the justice of the Merciful, who has given everyone a time. Many Surahs also speak that will be the judgment later (otherwise it would have fulminated and precipitated into the abyss all of us with a single blink).

-        According to your thinking, you gain souls for Satan, doing a service and thus making you your master, since you steal the opportunity to "infidels" (who have not attacked your religion), to face God.

-        You are full of hatred whose father is Iblis, and thus you move away from the Holy Quran, merciful and meek book as God is (already seen).

-        You are haughty and you think you are elected, better than the others (which does not like God, there are Surahs who talk about it); You forget all your sins with which God has shown mercy, and what is worse, you forget to use the mercy you have received with others. Hatred is not the heritage of God, but of the devil and in many parts of the world you will find it. Love and mercy do come from God and by themselves justify man of every creed and nation.

 

 

Thus, it is important, as I say, to see the context in which the Quran was written. Well, although it is unchangeable, it does change our environment. Today there are no attacks on religion except for the temptations of Iblis. The Prophet Muhammad lived (I think) surrounded by battles against the Romans (Emperor Heraclio) whose official religion was the Christian. By then, countries were invaded, people were expelled or cultures and religions were imposed.

In this environment (century VII) the word "combat that comes 42 times" is observed, always as a defense for the survival of the incipient Muslim expansion.

 

Surah 9,29 Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture - [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.

 

 

 

It speaks of a fight for the defense of religion, not as an attack (active hatred); Otherwise it would not be appeased with a tribute, for to God money is nothing, he Holy Quran is categorical about it. He provides those who trust in Him.

Now a description of the Gehenna. Fire that does not kill, but it hurts like the one here. It speaks of hell, after the judgment of God for those who hated or for the "infidels." Some unclean beasts burn others for this Sura; Their hatred blinds them and they ignore that they can not replenish the skin, ergo is not aimed at them, it is a direct way of describing hell. In fact, afterwards It speaks of the gardens, which would also go after the trial and likewise, it is not the man who provides these gardens:

 

Surah 4,55 And some among them believed in it, and some among them were averse to it. And sufficient is Hell as a blaze.   (*Hell=Gehenna)

4,56.     Indeed, those who disbelieve in Our verses - We will drive them into a Fire. Every time their skins are roasted through We will replace them with other skins so they may taste the punishment. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted in Might and Wise.

4, 57.    But those who believe and do righteous deeds - We will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide forever. For them therein are purified spouses, and We will admit them to deepening shade.

I have already put the Suras 9,5.12.36 that speak of self-defense.

And the latter is another clear proof that he always speaks of self-defense:

Surah 60,1;O you who believe! Do not take My enemies and your enemies for supporters,offering them affection, when they have disbelieved in what has come to you of the Truth. They have expelled the Messenger, and you, because you believed in God, your Lord. If you have mobilized to strive for My cause, seeking My approval, how can you secretly love them? I know what you conceal and what you reveal. Whoever among you does that has strayed from the right way:

Surah 60,8 Allah does not forbid you to be kind and equitable to those who had neither fought against your faith nor driven you out of your homes. In fact, Allah loves the equitable.

Fool! You are like the one who is going to see the Alhambra in Granada, who brings his nose too close to a wall of his defense and blinds his sight and does not see its wonders. Separate a little and you will see; Enter later and you will find God in love and mercy. Outside is the hatred and the one who professes it. But if you repent of heart He will forgive you, because it is pure love and mercy, and He can not deny himself. It is the man who denies Him and thus condemns Himself. You have been stuck in these few Surahs that of course were written in the will of God, but with the purpose of protecting Islam in its beginning, because He wanted to extend this way in the right direction for your nation, for your understanding and Your hearts. And even written as they are, you twist them to the extreme to misinterpret them.

Apart from the strict rules and the fact that they have more or less demonized the infidels, and the misinterpretation of the Quran by some which leads them to hatred against these infidels (=us + others, as they seem to understand), the biggest difference and point of contention with Christians is that we consider Jesus to be the Son of God. The Quran states that Christ did not say that He was God, which in some scriptures is true for the created person. Let's look at these readings from the Gospel:

 

Gospel of Mark 10:15-22

In truth I tell you, anyone who does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.'

Then he embraced them, laid his hands on them and gave them his blessing. He was setting out on a journey when a man ran up, knelt before him and put this question to him, 'Good master, what must I do to inherit eternal life?'

Jesus said to him, 'Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone.

You know the commandments: You shall not kill; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not give false witness; You shall not defraud; Honour your father and mother.'

And he said to him, 'Master, I have kept all these since my earliest days.'

Jesus looked steadily at him and he was filled with love for him, and he said, 'You need to do one thing more. Go and sell what you own and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.'

But his face fell at these words and he went away sad, for he was a man of great wealth.

 

Think of us when we have the Holy Spirit within. We are: our thoughts, our memories... but we have something that makes us great inside, we become something other than what we were. We are able to overcome sin, and not by ourselves, but with the help of the Holy Spirit. This statement I just made, and which I have so often heard to be true, “alone we cannot, but with the help of the Holy Spirit we can,” can give us a clue on a tiny scale of why Jesus Christ man (person) makes that statement. If we think of the origin, of Jesus Christ as God's greatest wish, etc., we see that he has also been, as a person, made “independent” of God. That is, Dios crea una persona y le da libertad e independencia y esa libertad y decisiones son su persona (la persona de Jesús); el hecho de que esas decisiones mantengan en su interior la esencia de Dios como está, sin separarse nada de Dios, es lo que le mantiene en Dios como Dios. And that set of decisions, that freedom and, in short, the person of Jesus Christ, knows that the essence of God, that which he has in himself which comes from the Father and that he maintains as an independent person, is infinite – which makes him infinite in his nature of God. It's interesting to see section  9. The Holy Trinity p. 249..

Thus, in the world, Jesus Christ maintains in his interior the exact Essence of God, but he is also man and that nature of man is what awesomely approaches us; it is what we can grab onto to link with God. It is that nature that speaks of his other nature: “No one is good but God alone”.

Something similar happens at the precise moment of his death, even if he did not die as he is. By dying loving he remains capable of receiving the Holy Spirit and makes capable of receiving the Holy Spirit to the whole man nature. This is the subsequent resurrection that interests us, because the Holy Spirit (perfect garment) was taken away from him before the cross, since it is not God the Essence that is tested, but the independent person of the first created; the one who first of all validated the heavenly creatures (angels...), is the one who must validate the new nature so that we can escape the justice that our betrayal companion Iblis claims, who asks for our same destiny. If we had all remained as fallen angels we would have had the same destiny: eternal damnation, but Christ recovers the Holy Spirit as man after passing the cross, as I say this is the resurrection that interests us. And if we have committed the same betrayal why us and not the demons? Because those who hated and poisoned, on the other hand, the deaf here designated as 'Eve', listened to Iblis and wished to take the Essence of God for themselves, to be like God, and finally the Adam who here hears the word of God in their various 'languages' or creeds, were convinced by the Love of Eve, but they did not wish to be any more nor did they hate. They were content with what they were. Everything has its justice.

 

Gospel of Matthew 27:43-50

He has put his trust in God; now let God rescue him if he wants him. For he did say, "I am God's son." '

Even the bandits who were crucified with him taunted him in the same way.

From the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour.

And about the ninth hour, Jesus cried out in a loud voice, 'Eli, eli, lama sabachthani?' that is, 'My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?'

When some of those who stood there heard this, they said, 'The man is calling on Elijah,' and one of them quickly ran to get a sponge which he filled with vinegar and, putting it on a reed, gave it him to drink.

But the rest of them said, 'Wait! And see if Elijah will come to save him.'

But Jesus, again crying out in a loud voice, yielded up his spirit.

  

In validating man, Jesus Christ is tested to the extreme in love in this form, i.e. as a man; to make man into love, to make him God's wish again. And in this form, he passes the test, exclusively as a man. We know that, mysteriously, the Holy Spirit makes all of our sufferings much lighter. So, he is tested in the passion exclusively as a man, as what he wants to justify and make worthy. If I want to test whether a baby’s bottle is too hot and I touch it to the front of my wrist, I wouldn’t put a cloth in between because if I did, I wouldn’t know if it really burns, if it will burn the baby. In a way, having the Holy Spirit inside would have been an “anesthesia” to the raw passion. It would give reason to the heretics who say, “Jesus Christ could bear the cross easily because he was God.” No. It is his person in the nature of man that is tested, hence the extreme act of love, and it is his nature of man that says, “My God, my God! Why have you forsaken me?

 

Muslims also say that Jesus is not the son of God but a prophet, and they say that the Gospels are a book of Light:

 

 

Sura 5. Al-Ma'idah (The Table Spread).

46. ​​ And We sent, following in their footsteps, Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming that which came before him in the Torah; and We gave him the Gospel, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which preceded it of the Torah as guidance and instruction for the righteous.

 

It's funny how God speaks according to the understanding of men; in the Gospel we find:

 

 

Gospel of John 8:28

So Jesus said: When you have lifted up the Son of man, then you will know that I am He and that I do nothing of my own accord. What I say is what the Father has taught me;

 

Gospel of John 10:30

 The Father and I are one.

 

Gospel of John 10:34-38

Jesus answered: Is it not written in your Law: I said, you are gods?

So it uses the word 'gods' of those people to whom the word of God was addressed -- and scripture cannot be set aside.

Yet to someone whom the Father has consecrated and sent into the world you say, 'You are blaspheming' because I said, 'I am Son of God.'

If I am not doing my Father's work, there is no need to believe me;

but if I am doing it, then even if you refuse to believe in me, at least believe in the work I do; then you will know for certain that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.

 

Gospel of John 11:25-27

Jesus said: I am the resurrection. Anyone who believes in me, even though that person dies, will live,

and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?  'Yes, Lord,' she said, 'I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who was to come into this world.'

 

Gospel of John 14:10

Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? What I say to you I do not speak of my own accord: it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his works.

 

Gospel of John 17:5

Now, Father, glorify me with that glory I had with you before ever the world existed.

 

Gospel of John 20:28-29

Thomas replied, 'My Lord and my God!'

Jesus said to him: You believe because you can see me. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.

There is also foreshadowing of Jesus Christ in the Torah where he is spoken of as the savior of men. Some of these are described in the following section:  Judaism. Foreshadowing of Christ in the Torah p. 89.

 

They also say that Jesus Christ did not die, but was raised to God.

 

Surah 4. An-Nisa '(The Women).

157. And for their saying, "Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah." And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain. Rather, Allah raised him to Himself. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise.


It says they did not crucify him; they only thought they did. Then it seems to say that to the eyes of the world, they crucified him, but in reality they did not; that is, they didn’t kill him because God raised him to Himself. Paradoxically it seems that the Quran speaks of the person of Jesus as able to contain the infinite Love, the pure essence of God; since it is this person who does not die as such, that is, is still able to contain God, and in his survival as a man and God, he makes all men capable of receiving God. Which is true, and it is the most important truth for God and for us. This is also clearly foreshadowed in the Torah (See next section: ), written thousands of years before the arrival of Jesus Christ. How is this possible unless this is so? As an observation for Christians, I would say that the resurrection of Christ as a man was important for the strengthening of his teachings to us, men of little faith, but what is really important is his resurrection as the Essence of God. We all know that, when he was nailed to the cross, he was stripped of trim (Holy Spirit): "Father, why have you forsaken me?", because only as a man, as nature that his person had come to validate, should pass the test. And so, as such, as one more of us, he loved and he did not stop loving even in torture. And his person rose containing the infinite Essence of God. That is the resurrection that really matters (It does not matter that they do not believe in the resurrection of their body); the resurrection of the body is not as relevant, nor of Lazarus’s, meaning the same thing: their power over death. So, his being did not die, as the Quran says, it was only separated (God raised him for himself) until the death of the body; and all because God loves us infinitely (as He is, infinite, pure Love and Mercy). As I said before, the vestments represent the Holy Spirit in almost every place of Scripture. Notice that the Bible clearly speaks to us even in what we do not see at first sight: It says that the robe that Christ wore before the cross was one piece, without seams (John 19:23). They stripped Him of that robe before crucifying him. Does not this repeat us that his Holy Spirit was perfect? That It was at Its highest intensity, that of God? It was not "adapted" (seams) like that of the angels or that we can feel minimally inside ourselves when we are in grace. And does it not tell us that at the time of the cross the nature of God was withdrawn, to leave alone That of man, that nature which He recovered (nature of God), and in which He rose again, after dying by love (or that is taken by God for himself, according to the Quran). This is the resurrection that matters to us, which makes us all men fit for the Spirit, which makes the nature of man a container of God.

 

1 Peter 3:18-19

Christ himself died once and for all for sins, the upright for the sake of the guilty, to lead us to God. In the body he was put to death, in the spirit he was raised to life, and, in the spirit, he went to preach to the spirits in prison.

 

Doesn’t St. Peter say something similar here? “In the body he was put to death”, dead to the world. “In the spirit he was raised to life”, “they not kill him but God raised him to Himself.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let's see what the Quran says about Jesus:

He is born of the Virgin Mary. He is not conceived by man.

He does not die, but is taken by God to Himself.

 

 

As I said, there is no prophet, or person in history, who has not been conceived by man, or whose body has not died, not even Abraham.

The Quran says that Jesus is like Adam. That God said “I know”, and he was. And this is true, given that a holy book doesn’t lie; it simply adapts to the understanding of the nation for whom it is intended, while keeping us on a path made of love and mercy, united and adapted to our customs in the world, and also separated from the others as a test in the world and to safeguard our freedom. The person of Jesus was a direct creation of God (he has left it written so that today you can understand that his independent person was already created in heaven, by God/Himself), Jesus kept the exact essence of God and because of him, God created the rest. A Muslim who has felt God within themselves can more or less understand this. But the person or independent freedom of Jesus is pure love, and made decisions of pure love (also as a man: the cross), and he was not only the first to be created, but the only one capable of holding Infinite Love, God. He is a person directly created, (later his person becomes man, in the body directly created by God) and God’s essence. In truth, we were also created directly (Adam and Eve, as I have said before) in the image and likeness of God, or as His children (although we did not keep the full essence of God). This is why God loves us so very much. Incidentally, someone who denies that Jesus is the son of God, denies that we can once again become children of God; in a way, it’s like saying that men CAN’T have God within us, when we know that we can.

For a Muslim who lives their faith from love, none of this is really necessary, but knowing it makes them see how much God loves them and why we are all brothers, although we travel on different paths or religions. The reason why we must rejoin what was broken in heaven by Satan the separator, above all, is because if we know this today, that means it is His will and we must act accordingly.

And this being so, returning to the Surah above, isn’t it true that the Spirit, the essence of God, that which makes Jesus Christ God[1], does not die in the crucifixion? Because this is so, because Jesus Christ asks forgiveness for us, even being tortured, because he remains in Love, he remains the exact wish of God, he keeps the essence of God and keeps being God. And in that test of his person as man, he makes all men worthy of God; it is this extreme love that was tested in the mold of man, and it passed. Paradoxically, I repeat, what is written here is certainly referring to Jesus Christ God’s Essence. I say paradoxically because Muslims, as I said, have always understood the figure of Christ as a prophet. Well, God wanted to keep it this way to protect our freedom (His concealment), but if everything has now been discovered, and there is no doubt that it has (read the rest of the book or at least Judaism and The Proof), it is because His will is that we unite in the same Spirit; that the 7 Spirits of God (Revelation) finally join. Perhaps, as I have said, it is time that we the Adams unite, Muslims and Christians, Buddhists and Hindus… so that the deaf (fools), the Eves, may learn to hear in our example of love. I don’t think it will be long before this happens. Maybe the end is already approaching…



[1]   A Muslim's neck hair bristles when he hears that Jesus Christ is God, but tell me, if you see a blue jar of jam and another smaller orange, also of jam, don't you call both jams? Or better, if you see a wave drawn in the water and a smaller one inside, you do not see that they are made in the same water; although you can differentiate them both, it is not two different waters, nor different ponds. They are "forms" in the same water; a smaller one contained in the other. 

In short, God's will has been to keep us apart, to maintain our freedom with the confusion of Babel. He has given 7 nations 7 parallel directions to the same place, but separated from each other. The rails that we cling to remain, but they bind us, because ultimately what saves us is love. These rails have been the perfect platform set by God for us to find that love, and now the time has come to know it, perhaps because the road ends and with it the rails. Now we must find the entrance of Eden, and it’s urgent; now is when we all have to join together at the point where we converge: in Love. In God.

It isn’t hard to imagine why God makes different paths to salvation. Consider a slightly extreme but valid example:

A farmer with different types of animals which he is going to bring from the bottom of a valley to his farm at the top of the mountain, where he will then eat them so they will become part of his belly (just an example); for that reason, he wants them to have plenty of meat on their bones. There are horses, cows, calves… turtles and even lions. Wouldn’t he make different paths or ways to them to arrive (and with plenty of separation between them)? The horse would barely need a path at all, the cow needs flatter terrain… But all of them can arrive because they have strength in their flesh; in fact, if they had no meat, they’d never make it, nor would the farmer be interested in eating them.

Well, God provides what is necessary for our salvation, but in the end the important thing isn’t the path itself, but having Love, having mercy. Because love, like the “meat” on the livestock, is what gives us the strength to reach and please God. If anyone is just skin and bones, they won’t have the strength or desire to start climbing and will stay in the valley of death (Hell). Others may have started up one of the paths, but they are so scrawny that they stay at the beginning of it. More fortunate are those who go farther, because, although they have to wait for the farmer to find them all, he might come down a little for their small amount of meat. In this example, Christ would be the farmer’s vaccine full of knowledge (Being) which cures the farmer’s allergy to meat, because before, he consumed only calories with no meat, and which also cures the diseases of the animals in the valley (a vaccine for heaven and earth). And the devil would be the disease that rots the meat (in the valley) and caused the farmer’s allergy (in his home) in the first place.

Some may not want to recognize that a religion may be a good direction, but not a guarantee of arrival; that by itself, with its rules but without love, we won’t arrive because of ourselves. And we can actually see this all around us in some who call themselves Christians, who go to church on Sunday and then are selfish and petty with their neighbor. The same happens with Muslims who will pray at the mosque on Friday and then are not able to show the mercy that Allah has with them. For all the rules that follow, there is a teaching that underlies our scriptures, which is Love. Jesus Christ and the apostles warned of this. Without love, you can be burned by God which is of no use to you, or you can give all your possessions to the poor, for they are of no use.

Insofar as the Holy Qur’an gives us rules of renunciation of the world and of acceptance and fidelity to God, it speaks to us of mercy, hospitality, etc.....; and thanks to the fact that Jesus Christ has redeemed all Man Nature., and that it is the practice of Love that saves us; Islam, practiced from that love, is another valid religion to reach God. But they must be careful not to misinterpret the messages that God, Allāh, put in the Qur’an, their sacred book, for the purpose of safeguarding our freedom and keeping us separated at least so far prophesied from our union. And they must ask nothing more than where mercy comes from; Comes out of Love or Hate. God is Love, the devil is the father of hate. Love is a way of life that you 'give off'. You do not choose who to give it to. It occurs in the family, at work and even to enemies.

So, with all that I have said, I am not going to deny the prophet that God sent you, because he was actually sent by him and as an envoy he fulfilled his orders. But I warn you that there is only one God, be careful not to fall, without realizing, in what the prophet warned you so much, to associate others with God; Muhammad was a mortal and an envoy, as he well said.

 

I'm not going to deny that there is only one God and that Jesus Christ was created, but only in his person, not in his interior. If you have felt God within you, you will know what I am talking about, of being yourselves with your "person" and yet living drunk with happiness. The 'Sakina' or tranquility, as you call it is to have God in you, in you and in your neighbor, maybe, and there is still one God, but in your different persons. The difference is that the intensity of God in the person of Christ is absolute. He speaks from the source, to us, to those who are fortunate, the Spirit of God is pierced by us and remains in us until we sin. But we are not at the source but far from it, and the "waves" come to us weak (our nature can no longer contain it except in this way, far inferior to that of the angels and infinitely inferior to that of Christ).

I'm not going to give up the five pillars. Since I acknowledge that there is only one God and that Muhammad was sent by Him. I do not deny the necessity of the azalá (prayer) nor of the azaque (alms) nor what supposes the fast as an aid to approach to God. Nor do I deny the pilgrimages for the things of God, since these suppose a detachment from the world in His name and a choice in themselves.

I'm not going to deny the resurrection or eternal Life, nor the Gehenna or the fire that is not consumed, nor kills, but that hurts and burns like the one here.

 

I propose the following example:

Several battalions of your beloved army have been trapped in different hollows of a route by which they traveled when they followed their non-commissioned officers who disobeyed the orders of the general. They are battalions that do not know each other, because they were given secret identities, nor do they know the general for receiving orders from the scale of commands. Now your battalion is surrounded by demonic enemies in the night, and you can not return to the great column of your army. In turn, the army can not reach you, as it would fall into the hole. So send an envoy with stairs and tools to get out of the hole. It is not normal for you to walk up stairs, but rather to walk, however, the general has sent you those stairs to help you out.

The general also has some plans for you. Which will be given to you when you leave the tunnel. He knows all the plans and is in charge to send sent to succor to the other battalions that have fallen in holes. These envoys will send them with whatever the battalion in question needs, which will depend on the training of the battalion itself and the characteristics of the hole in which they are involved. And since the General knows all the plans, his envoys only have to carry his ladder of the right size. The envoys will only be given what they need to their battalion to leave the hole. The envoy is not the general, he does not have to know all the plans, except those that speak of the salvation of his battalion.

And will the general send a single ladder for seven battalions? No. Because the holes are different and the time is the same for all, it is preset. Moreover, it will tell each of its envoys concrete characteristics that differentiate each battalion, lest it be confused and occupied with those that should not be occupied, leaving the others without envoy or without salvation. Thus, the envoys do not know each other deeply, to safeguard that secret identity and for the salvation of their community.

Well, the general would be God. Your envoy Muhammad. Stairs are the way in which God has given you what saves you:

Humility, almsgiving, faith, prayer, mercy, departing in some way from the world or the hole in which we are.

These norms, or stairs have been made for you, adapted to your understanding, your culture and customs, but in them underlies a message common to all: the mercy and love of God. That mercy we are called to make ours to others. Likewise, your culture and customs in the world (like mine), are a result of the lack we made in heaven. He wanted you to be born where you did it and receive your religion. Thus all righteousness is fulfilled; He provides what is necessary for our salvation, also that the parallel paths in the right direction are kept separate, although soon they will unite towards the Love of God.

This I tell you:

God loves you, as you are. And He desires that you be saved, wants to fill you with His Spirit and for that you must love, for He is Love and we were made by Him (our soul) in His image and likeness, but we disbelieved, disobeyed and the Spirit left us Because He can not not-be, can not not-love. We freely self-expel from Eden. Indeed, we were made a first time (in a beginning), next to God; In our freedom we fall and now He recreates us a second time in a nature that holds us for a time to recover in the happiness of being first, filled with the Spirit. This is why God is apparently hiding: to respect our freedom, for without it we would cease to be as He created us. This being so, hell or Gehenna is true, for he who fails to be filled with God (of love, of the Holy Spirit), when he dies the body will fall next to those who up there hated God and who lost their freedom to Just hating That is the eternal and painful hell warned to all the "battalions", to all the straight lines that go in the right direction, parallel to each other. Indeed, there will be a third recreation, for those who are filled with the Spirit, and even so, we will be the same person that we were in the first creation.

This more I say:

There are some who can not hear the word of God no matter how hard they engage; Dispersed among all nations and religions. This is so because there were some who loathed God, or emptied themselves of Him, deceived by the love they felt towards others. But there were those who fell deceived by craving for more God's essence and still others who hated and are no longer free. This is the original differentiation between all of us. Nevertheless, the deaf with freedom will be able to hear by seeing us live the mercy of the believers of these religions.

It is certain that time is fixed, and then it will be judgment, but this will already be closed by our actions in the life of the body. Then we can do nothing, because we will no longer be free to choose God. There will be no doubt that He is there and that He is Love; There will be no choice.

But just as what we do in favor of the other is actually for our own benefit, it is our actions that judge us. God is not vengeful, but He can not not-be, the unlove can not coexist with Him, that is why he has made this world a test, because it is in need where you can fill with love. There is little love in the rich who gives a small alms for fulfillment and much love in someone who gives a small alms of what little he has, for empathy with the one to whom he gives, to put in his skin and do for him What would you like for yourself.

And this more:

Nowhere in the Quran have I read that it is necessary to attack the infidels if it is not in self-defense, something also allowed in Catholicism. In all the verses, I have read that justice will be finished at the appointed time, from the hands of God. Today there are no holy wars, because almost everywhere there is freedom of religion. And in any case if there are battles in the world do not attack a particular religion or race (although there are those of your nation that deceived attack others on the basis of religion). Be careful then, for Iblis is trundling in the verses of the envoy to make you misunderstand what he wrote. God is justice, not ours. If He wanted to, those whom you call unfaithful would disappear with His blinking, but both His patience and His love and mercy are infinite. Otherwise, I assure you that none of the earth, including you, would have lived for a moment.

And this in addition:

In this book, there is evidence that God exists and is just as I tell you. They are not just proofs of faith, like the clear verses of the Quran, but tests for the man of science too, for the eve or deaf. This being so (reading the full essay to prove it), the time has come when God will show what He wanted to keep hidden until a predetermined time. The time has come when the earth is filled with the knowledge of the Lord, and therefore must be near the end. It is the moment in which the wolf will dwell with the lamb, in which the ways of good leadership unite under the love and mercy of God. It is time to know our true identity. We will see the general, dawn and we will know that we all fight on the same side against the demons.

To the Prophet Muhammad God revealed to you what you needed to save you and through him many achieved salvation. What was revealed was what you were prepared to understand and what God wanted to keep hidden, not only to him but to all men, was hidden. The person of Jesus Christ, the man, was revealed to the prophet. But there is a part of us when we are in grace that God is in us. Muhammad always spoke of the person of Jesus Christ as created by God and, as I have said, he was telling the truth. It is that other part that Christ does not change anything of God, that we sometimes also share minimally, that in Him is absolute. And yet there is still one God. Thanks to that person capable of containing absolute Love, you and us and all men can feel the 'Sakina', we can harbor the Holy Spirit, for He has made us fit. Thus, Jesus Christ is not the son of God in the sense that you give him, it is The Son of God because his person was created by him and is fully restrained, able to hold the infinite Love = God. Know that the angels and us in the first creation or beginning, were created in the same way, so we were children too, but we never get to fully keep God, but adapted to our person (whenever I say 'adapted' I mean diminished in intensity; just as water vapour is still water, the Holy Spirit cannot change in what It Is). Here in nature man who holds us, we will only become "adoptive" children of God, (that which can house the Spirit), and when the preset time passes, the one who has his Spirit will return to God, those who will not, will continue to fall To the Gehenna. It is the Spirit that is drawn by Him; And there is still one God!

For me it would be very easy to keep quiet, but I can’t miss my Lord, I can’t miss your Lord, the only God. I know that some of you are deceived by Iblis, father of hatred, but to God I have offered my life and I put myself in his will. Know, as I have already said, that the deceived will follow the deceiver to the Gehenna, for hatred will never reach Eden, home of Love and Mercy, home of God. To the deceived, Iblis clouds the sight when they read the Holy Quran, and changes the fidelity and the mercy by the hatred. It is urgent to help them. Especially sad for Allah must be the case of today's Jihadists because being able to be the best, capable of giving their lives for Him, are deceived in Satan's way by filling them with hatred. They ignore that hatred is incompatible with Allah, that hatred is "not-being," which is the opposite of mercy. This is how Satan acts; Evil shows us as good, and good as bad.

 

Finally, tell everyone, even the deceived, that you must be overflowing with happiness, because it is wonderful news that I bring you: God loves us. He is not an avenging god, he wants to save us and he has already done it for what we did up there, now our freedom must accept to live in Him, to live in Love. Whenever we maintain our freedom, we have life in our body, we can Return to Him, because He does not deny himself, it is Love and Love forgives everything. But since Love can not enslave us, it respects our freedom; Wherever our direction points when our body dies, there we will invariably address.

As for Jesus Christ, you must know that we were all children of God; Not like him, but we were, and we "repudiated" him for not loving. Think, if you will, in the image of a family with a few children of two to four years and an older brother of twenty-five, responsible and honor of his father; So much that contributes in the operation of the house. Thus, the elder brother shares the authority of the father, and for the children, his authority, moreover, represents that of the father. The children do not exercise authority among them, although perhaps the one of 4 will have a very small part more than the one of 2. I do not say that Jesus Christ was a god able to create like its Father, I say that Jesus Christ shares the same essence of God, having only one God. As I said, it is a mysterious thing, that we may share in each of us the least of the essence of God and there is one God. How many millions of people in all nations or religions can feel God within? And there is only One. For those who know what I am talking about, those who have felt God within you, I show you the solution; Because even in yourselves you have seen that He dwells in different intensity according to your circumstances in life (actually according to your love or loveless to others if you are of the adams or there is a gift). Well, there is One in which God the Essence or Holy Spirit is fully maintained in all its intensity. The Prophet Muhammad constantly tells us that God is One and has no children, and it is true in the sense that there is no god and another god. No. There is one God from whom all who are saved will participate in one measure or another. Those are the gardens with rivers underneath. Everything is explained to us in the way we can understand it. If you've lived heaven already on earth you know what I'm talking about. Thus Jesus Christ is the True Son of God the Father. Son as we are, in the person (created), True because He keeps accurate the Essence of God.

The time has come for us to unite in the knowledge of God. It does not mean that the devil stops acting. He was given the same time as us; God is just and we are all equal in that. To Iblis came that extension because God wanted to give us a propitious time of salvation, recovery of what was our first death, but he can not use it to his advantage, hate only harms oneself and the rest; Is harmful and corrosive like cancer, incompatible with God and his mercy. This good news that I bring to you does not mean that the battle is over, because until the last second granted we must fight against its temptations and deceptions. God has placed us in this scenario so that we can fight Iblis and in the battle against hatred, we choose Love and mercy, let us choose God; That war that we did not fight in heaven because we were deceived and led to the first death.

 

 

 

I leave you with the word that tonight, after the prayer, has come to the case (or at random). The truth is that nothing happens at random, and nothing escapes God (this book next to "God for Dummies -and smart people-", I update them often, so you will see repeated things).

Jeremiah 25:15-38 

 

15 For Yahweh, the God of Israel, said this to me, 'Take this cup of the wine of wrath and make all the nations to whom I send you drink it;

16 they will drink and reel and lose their wits, because of the sword I am sending among them.'

17 I took the cup from Yahweh's hand and made all the nations to whom Yahweh sent me drink it

18 (Jerusalem and the towns of Judah, its kings and its chief men, to make them a ruin, an object of horror and derision and a curse, as is the case today):

19 Pharaoh king of Egypt, his officials, his chief men and all his people,

20 with the whole conglomeration of peoples there (all the kings of the country of Uz); all the kings of the country of the Philistines, Ashkelon, Gaza, Ekron and what is still left of Ashdod;

21 Edom, Moab and the Ammonites;

22 (all) the kings of Tyre, (all) the kings of Sidon, the kings of the island across the sea;

23 Dedan, Tema, Buz, all the people with shaven temples;

24 all the kings of Arabia (and all the kings of the conglomeration of peoples) who live in the desert

25 (all the kings of Zimri), all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of Media;

26 all the kings of the north, near and far, one after another: in short, all the kingdoms on the face of the earth. (As for the king of Sheshak, he will drink last of all.)

27 'You will say to them, "Yahweh Sabaoth, the God of Israel, says this: Drink! Get drunk! Vomit! Fall, never to rise again, before the sword that I am sending among you!"

28 If they refuse to take the cup from your hand and drink, you will say to them, "Yahweh Sabaoth says this: You must drink!

29 Look, for a start, I am bringing disaster on the city that bears my name, so are you likely to go unpunished? You certainly will not go unpunished, for next I shall summon a sword against all the inhabitants of the land, Yahweh declares." 30 'For your part, you are to prophesy all these words to them. Say to them: "Yahweh roars from on high, he thunders from his holy dwelling-place, loudly he roars at his own fold, shouts aloud like those who tread the grape at all the inhabitants of the land.

31 The noise resounds to the remotest parts of the earth. For Yahweh is indicting the nations, arraigning all humanity for judgement; the wicked he assigns to the sword, Yahweh declares.

32 Yahweh Sabaoth says this: Look, disaster is spreading from nation to nation, a mighty tempest is rising from the far ends of the earth.

33 "Those slaughtered by Yahweh that day will be scattered across the world from end to end. No dirge will be raised for them; no one will gather them or bury them; they will stay lying on the surface like dung.

34 "Howl, shepherds, shriek, roll on the ground, you lords of the flock, for your days have come to be slaughtered and to be scattered, and like a choice vase you will fall.

35 No refuge then for the shepherds, no escape for the lords of the flock!

36 Listen! A shriek from the shepherds, a howl from the lords of the flock! For Yahweh has laid their pasture waste, 37 the peaceful sheepfolds are reduced to silence owing to Yahweh's furious anger.

38 The lion has left his lair and their country is a wasteland now, owing to the devastating fury, owing to his furious anger." '

·      Why a Christian might legally “become” Muslim while still being Christian?

 

 

 

To “become” Muslim, one must say: “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger”. Allah is the translation of God.

If we know that God sends prophets to lead the people according to their understanding, it’s very understandable that He sent Muhammad to a people so culturally different. I’m sure that Muhammad was a prophet of God just as Moses was also His messenger. They ask Jesus this:

 

Matthew 19:7-8

They said to him, 'Then why did Moses command that a writ of dismissal should be given in cases of divorce?'

He said to them, 'It was because you were so hard-hearted, that Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but it was not like this from the beginning.

 

As I said, the first thing is to have rules that, out of love for God and neighbor, allow us to choose God when faced with the world. Jesus Christ has done the rest for us, the ability to be filled with God, with the Spirit. Thanks to Muhammad, a people with customs such as those related in this passage received a worthy guide to find that mercy and fill themselves with it; thanks to Jesus, they and we are able to be filled.

In that there is only one God, of course we agree. We think that He who fills us with Life, He who makes us Be and feel Alive is God, the same God but in the persona of the Holy Spirit (and He is still only 1 God). That same essence of God that adapts to us, pushing outwards, making a beautiful shape and keeping us from being deformed by the pressures of the world, helping us to accomplish things that we wouldn’t be able to without It. It helps us to be merciful as He is, something that does not come naturally from us, for our natural state is judgment and navel-gazing. That Essence becomes one with our persona!!! (Whenever It can live with us, because It cannot coexist with sin). That Essence is God, pure and infinite Love; and the only created “person” or freedom that can contain It as is, without It being changed or pressured, is Jesus Christ (pure Love - cross of Love), who is a person and God’s essence, and who maintains the only possible truth: that there is only one God. If they thought that the same God who lives so intimately with each of us (those who have Him within) is the same that is in our neighbor (those who have Him), they could understand that wonderful mystery that is God in us. And maybe, if all of us, Christians, Muslims and others, realized that we were created in an origin as free containers (persons) of the essence of God, and that we stopped being what we were by listening to the devil, then we would begin to see everyone as brothers, and we would close ranks against evil. Then we would know why nothing fills us or makes us happy except returning to what we were, Being again.

Well, I think that in saying that phrase, we wouldn’t be committing any heresy, but do we need to? Don’t we know that God is Love? That He has infinite mercy that comes from that Love? Muslims have a step to take along with us, and it is becoming Love or putting Love above strict rules (something the Jews didn’t do either).

And what has more to do with Love: turning the other cheek, or an eye for an eye? And if God wanted an eye for an eye, wouldn’t we all be dead already? Or are we perhaps saints and have always been? God speaks to people according to their understanding; in the Old Testament, He speaks of the law of Retaliation because, emptied of Him, we looked only for justice in the world.

As for the previous passage and following the thread of this essay, I believe that Jesus speaks of heaven, where it wasn’t like that. We all loved each other. Here, instinctively, it is our nature to seek justice, but the Holy Spirit enables us to truly love. With Him, with Love, all is forgiven. You give yourself to your wife and vice versa. You don’t get married to be happy – only the Holy Spirit can give happiness – you marry for love. And if God loves us, the traitors, so very much, if Jesus tells us to love the enemy, how are we going to reject our wife or husband? No. Although it may become our cross, it would be one more reason to love.

 

 

 

·      El Judaism.  Foreshadowing of Christ in the Torah

 

It's a shame that God was preparing so many years for the arrival of His Son, the Savior of mankind, and they don’t recognize him. It was very difficult for mankind to accept the Son of God, for Islam because they weren’t prepared as the people to whom he was directed, he wasn’t even shown as such; however, the Jews were prepared for him after their History of Salvation (which is part of our own). In fact, they can still look back to the Old Testament and see the foreshadowing of Jesus Christ in several places in the Torah. We can see part of the story in this reading:

 

 

 

Numbers 21:4-9

They left Mount Hor by the road to the Sea of Suph, to skirt round Edom. On the way the people lost patience.

They spoke against God and against Moses, 'Why did you bring us out of Egypt to die in the desert? For there is neither food nor water here; we are sick of this meagre diet.'

At this, God sent fiery serpents among the people; their bite brought death to many in Israel.

The people came and said to Moses, 'We have sinned by speaking against Yahweh and against you. Intercede for us with Yahweh to save us from these serpents.'

Moses interceded for the people,

and Yahweh replied, 'Make a fiery serpent and raise it as a standard. Anyone who is bitten and looks at it will survive.'

Moses then made a serpent out of bronze and raised it as a standard, and anyone who was bitten by a serpent and looked at the bronze serpent survived.

 

 

From the world this is easily interpretable, but let’s try to analyze this passage from the perspective of heaven.

Imagine that this reading also speaks of us when we were in heaven, for here we can find this “duality” of which I speak. I understand that for a Jew who has not seen the foreshadowing of Jesus Christ here, it will be even more difficult to place this passage in heaven, but let's try.

The first passage seems to place us and describe to us what was happening or beginning to happen:

 

4 They left Mount Hor, on the way to the Red Sea, around the land of Edom. The people became impatient on the way.

 

We are in heaven (mountain, high -heaven-) and have already been put on the path to the sea = death (the sea is known to symbolize death). It would be like saying: these people who were in heaven (as symbolized by the mountain of Hor) were already dissenting and going down the wrong path (path of death, symbolized by the sea).

 

 

It says: 'Why did you bring us out of Egypt to die in the desert? For there is neither food nor water here; we are sick of this meagre diet.'

 

 

This may refer to Freedom (Egypt = enslavement of the people of Israel, of us). Why did you wish us and make us free and independent of you? Why have you brought us up = ascended = improved to die in the desert? In reality, as in the normal perspective from the earth, it seems to tell us that they complained even after getting freedom and having food provided by God. It also speaks of a lie or deceit (as with the snake and the apple) which the Israelites or the angels in heaven have become prisoners of: “to die in the wilderness”; it is false because they have food although they say they don’t.

 

This passage may also reflect doubt about God, the temptation of the devil. “For there is no food or water, and we are tired of this meager diet”. Diet = Essence, Spirit; that which gives life. In Eden something similar is described: Adam and Eve have all the trees at their disposal (the diet, manna is the food that has the flavor that is most pleasing to each), but because of the lies of the devil, the apple is more appetizing (the food and water in the passage).

 

 

Numbers 21:6    

At this, God sent fiery serpents among the people; their bite brought death to many in Israel.

 

 

 

As already described, by doubting God and emptying ourselves of His essence, we fall lifeless far from the kingdom; but God joins us to bodies to save us and prevent us from continuing to fall and places us alongside the demons (snakes that have not only doubted but hated the essence) so that we can exercise our freedom to choose: God and filling ourselves with Life (the manna or His essence, that in some translations is called bread without body), or the devil and the world, and continuing in death. It isn’t actually a punishment of a vengeful God; it’s placing us in a situation where we can be saved because, in order to be saved, we have to freely want to be His wishes again, and without choice, freedom is not possible. So, this face of God aligns more closely with the New Testament, a God of love, not vengeance.

 

So, many in the world fall into the devil’s deceptions and temptations and die (because sin brings you to, or confirms your death).

 

 

Then comes:

 

Numbers 21:7

The people came and said to Moses, 'We have sinned by speaking against Yahweh and against you. Intercede for us with Yahweh to save us from these serpents.' Moses interceded for the people,

 

 

Men in their search for God (Torah or Old Testament) beg Him for salvation. They repent, and man matures.

 

 

Numbers 21:8

          and Yahweh replied, 'Make a fiery serpent and raise it as a standard. Anyone who is bitten and looks at it will survive.'

 

 

After the plea in the passage, when the people are ready to receive him, looked at from heaven’s perspective, He sends His Son to be raised up on a cross (standard) and everyone who died in sin who looks at him (approaches him) lives. Why else would He use a fiery serpent for salvation (a symbol of death), and not something good or nice? The fiery serpent is Jesus Christ nailed to the cross, bloodied and disfigured, from which they avert their eyes; that which, symbolizing death (death in the world), brings life, resurrection. Curious that looking at an image of death, one lives; curious that when we die for others, we get eternal life.

 

 

There's more foreshadowing of Jesus Christ in the Bible, probably more than the exegetes are aware of. Another in which you can see foreshadowing (perhaps not as clear as the snakes) is:

 

 

Exodus 17:10-12

Joshua did as Moses had told him and went out to engage Amalek, while Moses, Aaron and Hur went up to the top of the hill.

As long as Moses kept his arms raised, Israel had the advantage; when he let his arms fall, the advantage went to Amalek.

 

 

Well, let's think a bit about this passage. Without delving into the meaning of it, one could say it’s childish, that it seems like a joke on God’s part: raise your hands and you win; put them down and you lose => and also hundreds of people die. But it’s not, far from it, because everything in the Bible is there for a reason.

 

Let's take a look. On the one hand, raising your arms means effort and suffering (so much so that Aaron and Hur had to hold Moses). In a way, God tells us: renounce the world and die (suffer) for others (by raising his hands Israel wins, he suffers for Israel) and I will be with you and you will win. If you lower them and stay comfortable (selfish), lack of will, you lose your life as well as others that you could have saved. On the other hand, the cross symbolizes exactly the same thing, renouncing the world for love of neighbor. It’s foreshadowing of Jesus Christ both in form, because the arms are raised in crucifixion, and in what it represents.

Foreshadowing of Christ (Isaac)

 

Furthermore, the complete Holy Trinity figures in here; God the Father (person) is Abraham, who Sacrifices the Son Jesus (who is Isaac and the ram) and the sacrifice is made to God Spirit (God in the scripture) so that the sacrifice of the Son will make all men worthy of the same Holy Spirit. I think that this foreshadowing doesn’t speak of the relationship between the persons, but rather the purpose of Christ’s cross: to give us Life again, the Holy Spirit; and the immense Love God has for us, because He loves us with all His being. It’s true that Jesus is distinct from the Holy Spirit (anyone who blasphemes against It will not be forgiven), as we have seen in the section of the Holy Trinity. In this foreshadowing, aside from the differentiation between Isaac and the ram (both worthy for sacrifice -the ram a posteriori-), it distinguishes between Jesus the person or soul containing the essence of God (Isaac) and Jesus the man (body, ram). Jesus’ person, able to retain infinite God, doesn’t die, and by remaining in infinite love, keeps being God and thus saves us, validates us. The ram or the body of Jesus is sacrificed and dies. Consider that man (nature) is the fruit of sin, because we were not like this before. Jesus takes the form of “sin” to save us. What’s better than a ram with horns to symbolize sin? I think, this is the differentiation referred to in the Quran (Isaac/Jesus able to retain God-God- does not die, is still able to contain infinite God) as stated in the previous section “Islam” -but Muslims do not understand it this way-. Finally, it is the sacrifice of Jesus (faith of Abraham and Isaac) that makes the ram worthy as a sacrifice to God; which also symbolizes, with respect to Jesus, that he makes our bodies (rams) worthy of God, to be received by Him and to receive Him (the Holy Spirit). All men of all nations and/or religions! Thus, he says:

 

 

Genesis 22,15-18

The angel of Yahweh called Abraham a second time from heaven.

'I swear by my own self, Yahweh declares, that because you have done this, because you have not refused me your own beloved son,

I will shower blessings on you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and the grains of sand on the seashore. Your descendants will gain possession of the gates of their enemies.  All nations on earth will bless themselves by your descendants, because you have obeyed my command.'

 

 

 

 

 

And there are others foreshadowing:

 

Isaiah 9:5           

For a son has been born for us, a son has been given to us, and dominion has been laid on his shoulders; and this is the name he has been given, 'Wonder-Counsellor, Mighty-God, Eternal-Father, Prince-of-Peace'

 

Isaiah 53:3-6

he was despised, the lowest of men, a man of sorrows, familiar with suffering, one from whom, as it were, we averted our gaze, despised, for whom we had no regard.

Yet ours were the sufferings he was bearing, ours the sorrows he was carrying, while we thought of him as someone being punished and struck with affliction by God; whereas he was being wounded for our rebellions, crushed because of our guilt; the punishment reconciling us fell on him, and we have been healed by his bruises.

We had all gone astray like sheep, each taking his own way, and Yahweh brought the acts of rebellion of all of us to bear on him.

Ill-treated and afflicted, he never opened his mouth, like a lamb led to the slaughter-house, like a sheep dumb before its shearers he never opened his mouth.

 

Isaiah 7:14       

The Lord will give you a sign in any case: It is this: the young woman is with child and will give birth to a son whom she will call Immanuel.

 

Micah 5:1

But you (Bethlehem) Ephrathah, the least of the clans of Judah, from you will come for me a future ruler of Israel whose origins go back to the distant past, to the days of old.

Zechariah 9:9 

Rejoice heart and soul, daughter of Zion! Shout for joy, daughter of Jerusalem! Look, your king is approaching, he is vindicated and victorious, humble and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

 

Zechariah 12:10 

But over the House of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem I shall pour out a spirit of grace and prayer, and they will look to me. They will mourn for the one whom they have pierced as though for an only child, and weep for him as people weep for a first-born child.

 

Psalms 22:16-18   

A pack of dogs surrounds me, a gang of villains closing in on me as if to hack off my hands and my feet. I can count every one of my bones, while they look on and gloat; they divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.

Sodom and Gomorrah: They are a foreshadowing of us without any righteous person to save us. I know the event of Sodom goes before the foreshadowing of Jesus in Isaac and thus makes perfect sense, but I wanted to put it here to show you the clearest part first.

 

The sin of Sodom is not only “lewdness”:

 

Ezekiel 16:49-50

The crime of your sister Sodom was pride, gluttony, calm complacency; such were hers and her daughters' crimes. They never helped the poor and needy; they were proud, and engaged in loathsome practices before me, and so I swept them away as you have seen.

It is the sin that man made.

Now let’s see the intervention of Abraham before God to save them:

 

Genesis 18:20-33

Then Yahweh said, 'The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin is so grave,

that I shall go down and see whether or not their actions are at all as the outcry reaching me would suggest. Then I shall know.'

While the men left there and went to Sodom, Yahweh remained in Abraham's presence. Abraham stepped forward and said, 'Will you really destroy the upright with the guilty?

Suppose there are fifty upright people in the city. Will you really destroy it? Will you not spare the place for the sake of the fifty upright in it?

Do not think of doing such a thing: to put the upright to death with the guilty, so that upright and guilty fare alike! Is the judge of the whole world not to act justly?'

Yahweh replied, 'If I find fifty upright people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place because of them.'

Abraham spoke up and said, 'It is presumptuous of me to speak to the Lord, I who am dust and ashes:

Suppose the fifty upright were five short? Would you destroy the whole city because of five?' 'No,' he replied, 'I shall not destroy it if I find forty-five there.'

Abraham persisted and said, 'Suppose there are forty to be found there?' 'I shall not do it,' he replied, 'for the sake of the forty.'

Abraham said, 'I hope the Lord will not be angry if I go on: Suppose there are only thirty to be found there?' 'I shall not do it,' he replied, 'if I find thirty there.'

He said, 'It is presumptuous of me to speak to the Lord: Suppose there are only twenty there?' 'I shall not destroy it,' he replied, 'for the sake of the twenty.'

He said, 'I trust my Lord will not be angry if I speak once more: perhaps there will only be ten.' 'I shall not destroy it,' he replied, 'for the sake of the ten.'

When he had finished talking to Abraham Yahweh went away, and Abraham returned home.

 

As in the previous case, imagine that Abraham is the foreshadowing of the person God the Father, and God (Yahweh) is the Holy Spirit. Suppose that we are Sodom, those empty wishes of God, held by the nature of man, knowing sin. We have fallen and no one is worthy. Again, I’m not referring to the relationship between God’s 3 persons (let’s abstract from “I who am dust and ashes…”); foreshadowing is only put in the Bible for our understanding. In this scripture, it tells us that God saves or is able to save many because of the “deeds” or existence of a few. It makes us understand little by little, that if there are 50, 45, 30, 10 righteous men... But there are no righteous men. Jesus Christ is not there yet (not even in the order of foreshadowing; remember the sacrifice of Isaac in Genesis comes later). And speaking of justice, does justice really work like that? Wouldn’t it have been more reasonable for us to extract the 10 righteous ones, if there had been any, and convict the guilty? Yet God would have saved the city for those 10. In fact, He later sends angels to take Lot and his family away from Sodom before destroying it. It is not our logic, here it speaks of the figure of Christ the Redeemer. Because of one righteous man, who doesn’t exist here, we are saved. He makes us able to receive the Holy Spirit again. And actually, he saves us from death, just as Sodom would have been saved from destruction by those righteous 10, but they wouldn’t have made all Sodomites righteous. Today, like the Sodomites, we would all be wishes who emptied ourselves of God, tortured for eternity along with those who can only hate. However, Jesus Christ has validated man as a container for the Holy Spirit and so, for that alone, even though our cities today are like those of Sodom, even though each of us sins, even without knowing it (we aren’t saints, after all); even so, we can continue to live with the possibility of receiving the Spirit. We are not struck down; rather, God waits patiently in His love for us to come, to awaken from our night of sin, to open the door to Him. He hopes we will stop seeing only ourselves and look to others a little more, because there, outside our door, He is waiting. Does this mean that we’ll all go to heaven now? No. Neither would all the Sodomites have been made righteous by those 10. It means that He has already saved us from hell, and thanks to Him we can freely choose to become children of God again (something that we stopped being when we emptied ourselves), or children of the devil and his idols of the world. Even if we choose God, we can never be what we were, because after knowing sin, we will always have the nature of man. We would be adopted children thanks to Jesus Christ, who has adapted our prosthetics, our bodies, to hold the Spirit.

Sodom, then, represents us without Jesus Christ. I’m not sure at what point in our existence. I’m not sure if it’s right after emptying ourselves of God, before the nature of “man”, or already on earth, but it’s us before being saved. As for God’s 3 persons in this foreshadowing, remember that Jesus Christ is the only one of God’s persons who also shares a nature with us; that is, first he was God’s wish or created person (freedom), God created the freedom of Christ and it housed God, infinite, without changing Him one iota, and he keeps being Him, but he is also a created person. So much so that he again takes on our nature as sinners to save us, even though he did not sin. With regard to man, only our nature can save or validate our nature, because if not, it wouldn’t have been tested. How do you test the resistance of a material without using that material? It is the permanence of the Holy Spirit in all Its intensity, like God Himself, within the new nature of man, and under all the temptations that the personification of “wickedness” (the devil) tests Jesus Christ with, which validates, certifies, verifies and proves that the nature of man is God’s wish, able to receive and keep the Holy Spirit. The fact that we were made in the image and likeness of God in heaven also works in reverse: to return to what we were, the nature of man is made in the image and likeness of God in Jesus Christ. Thanks to him and his love, we are capable once again. Thus, it is reasonable that, in this foreshadowing, both by being and by not being, he represents the value of the Messiah, our Savior, which is exactly what he is.

 

In the figure of Moses

He was saved from the Pharaoh by wood floating in water and then was king (leader of his people). Christ was also saved from Herod, and the wood and water (cross and our baptism) save us and reaffirm his glory, as king of nations. Moreover, he frees from the bondage of the Pharaoh to his people, as Christ to us from the slavery of perpetual death without the Holy Spirit.

 

In the figure of Jonah

The 3 days Jonah was in the whale foreshadows the death and resurrection of Jesus on the third day.

 

In the figure of Joseph. Jesus is the “beloved Son” like Joseph. When Jesus proclaims himself the Messiah, his brothers, the Jews, are envious and malicious, like Joseph, who was sold by his brothers to foreigners as Jesus was by the Jews (his brothers) to the Romans. Joseph, who was arrested with two prisoners, announces to one his death, and to the other his glorious liberation. Jesus was crucified between two thieves; to one he promises heaven, and the other is left in his damnation.

Joseph fed the people with the wheat that had been stored and Jesus is the bread of life come down from heaven. The Pharaoh renamed Joseph and called him Savior of the world; Jesus is the Savior of mankind. Joseph forgives his brothers, and Jesus his executioners. Both are glorified, one by his nation and the other in every place and nation.

   There are many more readings in the Torah that foreshadow Christ, you only have to open a search engine and put “foreshadowing of Christ in the Old Testament.”

 

If the Israelites, so studious of the Torah in their search for God, have not seen Christ in these scriptures, who will see God in them? Just some Adams? What about the deaf? Maybe God wants to clarify the muddling of Babel for us, the subject of this book, so that even they can save themselves because of their understanding. Anyway, God knows how He will use His infinite mercy, respecting our freedom.

 

 

 

In Israel’s history is the history of salvation of all men. Because everything is repeated: the pharaoh or the devil (sin) is the one who keeps us as slaves, God frees us from bondage (Jesus breaks the chains and makes us worthy of God) and we wander in the desert (the world) to the promised land (he who has God with him will get there here in the world).

So it happened that the blood of an innocent lamb or goat saved the firstborn from death and caused Israel’s liberation. It was this fact; even Yahweh tells Moses that from that day “this month will be counted as the beginning of months...”. Well, a while later, the blood of Jesus, the innocent lamb who gave his spirit at three in the afternoon, that is, at the end of Nisan 14, which is also the time of the Passover sacrifice of the lamb, frees all men from DEATH; the DEATH our BEING. Coincidence? No. God measures everything.

 

 

 

Gospel of John 19:31

 It was the Day of Preparation, and to avoid the bodies' remaining on the cross during the Sabbath -- since that Sabbath was a day of special solemnity -- the Jews asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken away.

 

In the history of Israel, once in the Promised Land, or with the Holy Spirit within us in our personal history, we can now defeat the 7 peoples who are bigger than us. In the Torah, they are the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. In our life are the 7 Deadly Sins: lust, sloth, gluttony, wrath, envy, greed, pride. For without the Holy Spirit, we are unable to overcome sin because, without God, our nature is to only look at ourselves or, at most, at our own because of affection. It is true that there are sins that affect us more than others, and the devil will tempt us with those where we are weaker, but all can be overcome with the Holy Spirit, although we will win little by little, as the scriptures say.

 

But I’ll go even further. It is repeated even from heaven, as I have been saying. Thanks to Jesus (1st and only wish that pleases God by keeping himself in Him as God), the others are created. Later, we become slaves of death, sin; by listening to the devil, we empty ourselves of God and we fall with him to the earth, with the devil into Egypt (for the devil is the prince of the world). And we were slaves until the sacrifice of the innocent lamb, of Jesus, because until then we could not receive the Holy Spirit (we had ceased to be God’s “wish”). That day was when Christ made the nature of man capable of retaining God as he did in the beginning with nature of “wish” (created freedom + God’s essence). Now free, we must walk through the desert until we fill ourselves with the Spirit and return to the promised land. Of course, as it happened, some people prefer slavery (return to Egypt, the things of the world and its prince) to manna from heaven (Holy Spirit; Numbers 21:5, which we saw earlier). For the rest, in our life, what keeps us out of the Promised Land? The seven peoples that dwell within man, these 7 deadly sins? Must we cast them out by force to make room for the Holy Spirit? No. At least not by our own force. The Holy Spirit is a Gift; we should desire it, have Faith and ask God for it. Our story of salvation, like that of Israel, is thanks to God; it comes from Him. Perhaps the first step is to accept the manna from heaven and give up our past with Pharaoh, take the first step to turn away from sin and enter the desert; then He will help us. Maybe that’s how the entrance of the Spirit begins within us, and we arrive at the gates of the Promised Land and the invasion begins. We cannot control It, but the new covenant is sealed with the blood of Jesus and now we can receive It. And this is our history, or… what do you think? That the Israelites were going to take 40 years to get from Egypt to Canaan? Of course not; it’s a symbolic number, and what does it really represent? Not only the time of rebellion of the people of Israel, but also your own time of rebellion, the time it takes to fill yourself with the Holy Spirit if along the way you have not worshipped the golden calf or been bitten by the snakes. It often symbolizes an entire lifetime. In the first reading (Numbers 21:4-9) we saw our history of salvation summarized and focused from heaven, which ends when we are freed from real slavery, from death of being by looking at the serpent on the staff (note that like with the ram, Christ man is represented by a snake, for he takes the form of sin or the form of a human – what we became when degenerated by sin); in the readings of Exodus and the Bible in general, we also see our story of salvation.

 

And so, doesn’t it all make sense? Given that the world is only the battlefield where we are to be tempted, where in choosing its prince and his idols (money, power, emotions, etc.) above God we condemn ourselves (we confirm our own sentencing), isn’t it understandable that God (infinite Love), in His Son, comes to die for the world, teaching us the real way to live, to be revived from our death? Isn’t it natural, then, that a fiery serpent foreshadows Christ, which is a symbol of death on the cross for the world but of life and resurrection for those who see him? He who loves us so much, how could He stop showing us His love? Upon closer examination of the saints, I see that almost all had a life of renunciation of the world.  Coincidence? No. Looking at it in perspective, it is a clear and courageous choice: choose God over the world.

 

And if it seems so clear to us Christians, why don’t the Israelites see it? Maybe they didn’t see it because it should be this way for the salvation of the world, of the Gentiles (of us).

 

 

 

 

Romans 11:25-32

I want you to be quite certain, brothers, of this mystery, to save you from congratulating yourselves on your own good sense: part of Israel had its mind hardened, but only until the gentiles have wholly come in;

and this is how all Israel will be saved. As scripture says: From Zion will come the Redeemer, he will remove godlessness from Jacob.

And this will be my covenant with them, when I take their sins away.

As regards the gospel, they are enemies, but for your sake; but as regards those who are God's choice, they are still well loved for the sake of their ancestors.

There is no change of mind on God's part about the gifts he has made or of his choice.

Just as you were in the past disobedient to God but now you have been shown mercy, through their disobedience;

so in the same way they are disobedient now, so that through the mercy shown to you they too will receive mercy.

God has imprisoned all human beings in their own disobedience only to show mercy to them all.

 

 

This scripture chosen for this point also has some, for me, unexpected verses which talk about us before the world, which makes me think that there must be many others in the Bible that apply this “duality”.

As for the people of Israel, it seems that it’s written to say that, thanks to their denial of Jesus Christ, Christianity came from them to spread to the rest of the world. Furthermore, it speaks of His mercy to the Gentiles (each of us) before we know Christ and what He will have with the Jews when they know Him.

I see the “duality” in Romans 11:32 God has imprisoned all human beings in their own disobedience only to show mercy to them all.

 

From this world, these verses don’t make much sense (and I haven’t seen any annotations, parallels, or explanations in the Bible). God makes us disobedient to use mercy with us? I don’t know…

 

From heaven, after the betrayal, God puts us in the cages that hold us and frees us to fall along with Lucifer because of His mercy. It is our rebellion which has emptied us, and because of it we have now been locked up as men, and He did it all to save us, to show us mercy. Furthermore, the bodies protect us, while we inhabit them, from demons, preventing them from attacking our souls (unless we let them pass freely -possessions). They are wonderful fortresses that protect us from them, and our freedom the gate that can let them in. We did not rise up against God and Lucifer hates us too for that, because in his madness, he thinks that maybe he would have won up there with our active rebellion. He ascribes all the blame for his destiny to us and hates us with every last particle of evil. Even more so now, after seeing the love God has for us despite everything, and the mercy that has been shown to us by locking us into men, what we are now.

But speaking only of the Jews, i.e., of them and what they accept, consider the beginning of Shema:

Hear, O Israel: Yahweh is our God, Yahweh is One. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength…

 

Well, this is the most important commandment, as said by Jesus Christ; but he added something:

 

 

Gospel of Mark 12:29-31

Jesus replied, 'This is the first: Listen, Israel, the Lord our God is the one, only Lord,

and you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength.

The second is this: You must love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.'

 

 It is indeed the same, but they say that Jesus, based on Leviticus (19:18) added the second part. Consider the commandments of Moses.

 

Exodus 20:2-17

'I am Yahweh your God who brought you out of Egypt, where you lived as slaves.

'You shall have no other gods to rival me.

'You shall not make yourself a carved image or any likeness of anything in heaven above or on earth beneath or in the waters under the earth.

'You shall not bow down to them or serve them. For I, Yahweh your God, am a jealous God and I punish a parent's fault in the children, the grandchildren, and the great-grandchildren among those who hate me; Exo 20:6  but I act with faithful love towards thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

'You shall not misuse the name of Yahweh your God, for Yahweh will not leave unpunished anyone who misuses his name.

'Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.

For six days you shall labour and do all your work,

but the seventh day is a Sabbath for Yahweh your God. You shall do no work that day, neither you nor your son nor your daughter nor your servants, men or women, nor your animals nor the alien living with you. Exo 20:11  For in six days Yahweh made the heavens, earth and sea and all that these contain, but on the seventh day he rested; that is why Yahweh has blessed the Sabbath day and made it sacred.

'Honour your father and your mother so that you may live long in the land that Yahweh your God is giving you.

'You shall not kill.

'You shall not commit adultery.

'You shall not steal.

'You shall not give false evidence against your neighbour.

'You shall not set your heart on your neighbour's house. You shall not set your heart on your neighbour's spouse, or servant, man or woman, or ox, or donkey, or any of your neighbour's possessions.'

 

 

The first commandments are about our love and faithfulness to God, which is included in the commandment above, the most important from the Shema, but what about the other six? They refer in one way or another to our neighbor, and these are included in the second; combined with the first, they encompass all ten: You shall love your neighbor as you love yourself.

 

This had already been seen by the Jews then, but they did not fully understand who that neighbor was:

 

Gospel of Luke 10:25-37

And now a lawyer stood up and, to test him, asked, 'Master, what must I do to inherit eternal life?'

He said to him, 'What is written in the Law? What is your reading of it?’

He replied, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbour as yourself.'

Jesus said to him, 'You have answered right, do this and life is yours.'

But the man was anxious to justify himself and said to Jesus, 'And who is my neighbour?'

In answer Jesus said, 'A man was once on his way down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell into the hands of bandits; they stripped him, beat him and then made off, leaving him half dead. Now a priest happened to be travelling down the same road, but when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite who came to the place saw him, and passed by on the other side.

But a Samaritan traveller who came on him was moved with compassion when he saw him. He went up to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them. He then lifted him onto his own mount and took him to an inn and looked after him.

Next day, he took out two denarii and handed them to the innkeeper and said, "Look after him, and on my way back I will make good any extra expense you have."

Which of these three, do you think, proved himself a neighbour to the man who fell into the bandits' hands?'

He replied, 'The one who showed pity towards him.' Jesus said to him, 'Go, and do the same yourself.'

 

 

 

So, let’s not look for justifications. Might this person be my neighbor? Or this other person? Perhaps this person from my town? No. Love comes out of oneself, for love gives, it doesn’t take for itself. It doesn’t ask questions, although it does discern. And the only discernment it makes is to know whether there is need on the part of the loved. In this respect, I was struck by something Rabbi David Rosen said in a meeting with the Neocatechumenal Way; truth is that I take it out of context now, but since it is a story can be analyzed independently:

 

 

It’s the story of two farmers who meet and one says to the other:

-Boris, do you love me?

-Of course I love you

-Boris, do you know what makes me suffer?

-I do not know.

-Then how can you say you love me if you do not know what makes me suffer?

 

   

And yet, we are able to love God, who has no needs and is the happiest Being, for He is Love. He doesn’t even have suffering, because here we can banish ours with a little of His Spirit. Did the Samaritan in the scripture not love the other? Did he know them to know what their sufferings were? No. Only what he saw. Love should discern if there is need, although it is not essential to do so, because if you give to one who asks of you, even if you suspect that it is not needed, all the good of that charity will fall equally upon you because the other will have received your love.

What this rabbi said applies in a relationship of coexistence. Perhaps in a more emotional relationship, which is what humans are more accustomed to. And always in a relationship where your neighbor is someone you know. But what credit is there for loving our own? Don’t the wicked love those who love them? And don’t they give signs of emotional “love” continuously in any social environment? (To keep their image, or not lose a friendship, or because they know the favor will be returned, or something else...). Well, which love is truer? Loving (often emotionally) your “neighbor” whom you know, or selfless love to any neighbor?

 

He who has love does not ask who to give it to, because he is like that, and someone who asks might have something else.

 

 

Gospel of Matthew 5:43-46

'You have heard how it was said, You will love your neighbour and hate your enemy.

But I say this to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you;

so that you may be children of your Father in heaven, for he causes his sun to rise on the bad as well as the good, and sends down rain to fall on the upright and the wicked alike. For if you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Do not even the tax collectors do as much?

 

 

So, last night I opened a Bible reading “randomly”; that is, after praying an Our Father, I opened it where it fell and put my finger down without looking, and it left me with the passage of Ezekiel Chapter 3; as it is very short, I read the whole thing (if you are curious, search for it). Nothing would have happened if today I had not added text again on the subject of Judaism (which I often do: rewrite, you will have noticed that I repeat things because I don’t always follow the thread). But I’m here today, and as God, who we continually see in our history, also speaks to me in this way, so I have to speak to you:

It is time that you turn your face toward our Lord Jesus Christ, for he has saved you from falling


with Lucifer, but he will do nothing against your will because he respects our freedom. You must live the second commandment we have spoken about, just as eagerly as the first, for in loving our neighbor we are also loving God, because we were made in His image and likeness. Thus says the Lord Yahweh.

You want more evidence and reasoning? Read this complete essay. Are you still waiting for a savior messiah? Well look up for once and see that one whom you disparage is your messiah; he is there at your feet, showing love and humility, the path straight to heaven. Do I reproach you? No (Oh, happy crime that merited so great a redeemer). It was not your sin, but all men’s. He not only forgave you, but all humanity. He had to pass a test of extreme love to cleanse our sin, and not just sin here, but sin in heaven. Because there, all of us, Jews and non-Jews, “crucified” God. We expelled Him from within us (we didn’t kill Him because God cannot be killed, as it says in the Quran), but we did kill what we used to be with Him and then we stopped Being. Today we are all participants in the crucifixion of Jesus, because every time we sin, he is there, before God the Father asking for forgiveness with outstretched hands. And this is so because, if we do not fall with Lucifer, it is because our nature of man holds us, and the nature of man able to contain God is held by Jesus Christ. If not for this validated and “tethering” nature, each of the sins that here empty us of the Holy Spirit would lead us straight to hell, for an angel in that nature cannot sin without ceasing to be an angel. What is left then? The mercy of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that tosses us the lifeline “man”. Not so for the angels who hated God and whose freedom became perpetual hatred, because hatred is like that: it can’t choose to stop being what it is. We, on the other hand, can choose not to hate.

If God is love and from love emanates: mercy, compassion, piety, truth, integrity... the devil is hatred, lying, envy, anger... And if we had all believed the serpent’s lies, or worse, we would have hated, and there would have been no story of salvation for us. But there were some who were convinced by their love for the one who told them, not by lies against God. And this is the source of our hidden story of salvation, our freedom, the face of God. It is our Salvation in History, for that’s how the Lord acts with us. And as each of us crucified Jesus Christ with our sins, the History of Salvation of Israel is the same as ours; all that remains is for them to recognize the best part of this story: the love God has for us and the coming of the kingdom of heaven to us (the Holy Spirit) thanks to Jesus Christ dignifying “man” (in him, redemptive nature). Anyway, read the scriptures from this perspective and you will see that you will find much more evidence of all this. The word of God is alive, regardless of the fact that it was written 2000 or 3000 years ago. And so, is it any wonder that God speaks in it with a depth that for centuries we could not perceive? Perhaps it’s time for all of us to approach an understanding. Maybe it’s just that we are ready now or it’s simply the mercy of God that reveals hidden meanings to us constantly, because of our blindness to the Word.

The ten plagues also show us what happened from the beginning. The Jacob's Staircase.

 

The Jacob's Staircase

 

If you want to compare, the plagues are in the chapters of Exodus 7,8,9,10,11,12. In addition, this list of events is also reflected in the Revelation (p.180) in an encrypted way as here.

We have already seen who Pharaoh symbolizes in our story: the devil. And slavery, sin, the impossibility of receiving the Holy Spirit, the death within. I will expound the relationship of the ten plagues that God sends for our deliverance (although as will be seen, they also show our fall from heaven), and their correspondence with the ten steps (or events that bring us closer to heaven), present in Exodus. The plagues are constituted as steps downwards and the events of the Exodus as steps upwards (all perfectly ordered as they appear in the Bible). Since, as I say, we were angels and ended up on earth, is this not Jacob's Ladder that was prefigured in a dream for Isaac? Please read this carefully and check that it is not nonsense.

At the beginning, before the plagues, the rod (wood) becomes a snake. It refers to the moment in which Satan changes Angel, or being that contains the Essence of Life, the Holy Spirit symbolized as the Tree of Life in the Old Testament (this has already been explained), to a serpent. From one part of the Tree of Life changes to serpent. But his magicians also turn the rod into serpents, which means that by the hand of Satan others also became fallen angels.

The fact that Moses' rod becomes a serpent also refers to Jesus Christ, who being part of the 'Tree of Life' takes the form of a man. This one will eat the other snakes making reference to what will happen in the passion.

 

Exo 7:8 And the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, 9 "When Pharaoh says to you, 'Prove yourselves by working a miracle,' then you shall say to Aaron, 'Take your rod and cast it down before Pharaoh, that it may become a serpent.'"10 So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did as the LORD commanded; Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a serpent. 11 Then Pharaoh summoned the wise men and the sorcerers; and they also, the magicians of Egypt, did the same by their secret arts. 12  For every man cast down his rod, and they became serpents. But Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.


 

 

The Jacob's Staircase (descent)

The 1st plague: Water becomes blood.

 

The water of the Nile is the water that waters Egypt. Again, water symbolizes the Essence of God. Before, we all shared "something" of that Essence (here and now on earth, also those who are in grace). It says that it converts with the staff (which represented part of the tree of life before), that Water in blood. The water disappears and there is only blood left. Those who rise or doubt cease to be watered by the Essence of God. They are emptied. Fish whose natural environment is Water die. We die as desires of God. We no longer have its essence. In reality, this happens first to those who rose and by the devil (the magicians who also convert water into blood), the others suffer the same fate. These latter are the angels Eve and for love of these also the angels Adam.

There'll be blood... even on the trees and stones. The trees represent the free 'people', perhaps referring to the Adam-Eve or just the Adam; and the stones to the Eve or the other case to the fallen.

As a note to note, this plague is not recorded to be removed like other plagues in which the pharaoh repents and asks Moses to put them away; which means that we lose our heavenly nature forever and only those who manage to do so will again contain the Holy Spirit in the human nature (point this not yet reached in these plagues). Of course, the risen ones or fallen angels will never be able to because they will not even take on the body of man.

 

Éxo 7:17  Thus says the LORD, "By this you shall know that I am the LORD: behold, I will strike the water that is in the Nile with the rod that is in my hand, and it shall be turned to blood, 18  and the fish in the Nile shall die, and the Nile shall become foul, and the Egyptians will loathe to drink water from the Nile."'" 19  And the LORD said to Moses, "Say to Aaron, 'Take your rod and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, their canals, and their ponds, and all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and there shall be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood and in vessels of stone.'" 20  Moses and Aaron did as the LORD commanded; in the sight of Pharaoh and in the sight of his servants, he lifted up the rod and struck the water that was in the Nile, and all the water that was in the Nile turned to blood. 21 And the fish in the Nile died; and the Nile became foul, so that the Egyptians could not drink water from the Nile; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt. 22 But the magicians of Egypt did the same by their secret arts; so Pharaoh's heart remained hardened, and he would not listen to them; as the LORD had said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 2nd plague: The Frogs.

With the rod Moses makes the frogs of the Nile jump all over Egypt. This is what we become: frogs that are amphibious, but not like fish. We have gone from being in the river to being out of it, as if we were weak green sachets. It is a previous leap to living on earth (perhaps the time when we were no longer in God but close to Him). As always this is for those who rose, but equally for the Adams and Eves. By the hand of the devil (his magicians) many fell. This may be due to the concept of Justice, for although some hated, all of us who ended up on earth emptied ourselves (see Justice and Redemption in Jesus Christ). Satan and his demons demand the same fate as us for having been left empty like them.

 

 

 

Éxo 8:1  And the LORD said to Moses, "Say to Aaron, 'Stretch out your hand with your rod over the rivers, over the canals, and over the pools, and cause frogs to come upon the land of Egypt!'" 2  So Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt. 3 But the magicians did the same by their secret arts, and brought frogs upon the land of Egypt.

 

 

 

 

The 3rd plague and 4th plague: Gnats and flies.

This is the first plague that the "wizards of Pharaoh" can not repeat. Gnats appear on men and on cattle (latin:iumentis=animals;Spanish:cattle). Let us think that cattle refers to eves as I explain in this point a little later, in Noah and other places (Birds = adams - they can be separated from the world - cattle = evas - defenseless victims against the reptiles, for those who only have ears - and reptiles = demons -; are placed all in the Ark).  Men can be the Adams or the raised ones. The gnats, and the flies afterwards, I believe are the angels struggling with the lifted. I believe that in these we speak of the battle of angels and archangels with the emptiness of God.

 

 

 

 

Éxo 8:12 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Say to Aaron, 'Stretch out your rod and strike the dust of the earth, that it may become gnats throughout all the land of Egypt.'" 13 And they did so; Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and struck the dust of the earth, and there came gnats on man and beast; all the dust of the earth became gnats throughout all the land of Egypt. 14 The magicians tried by their secret arts to bring forth gnats, but they could not. So there were gnats on man and beast.

 

Éxo 8:17 Else, if you will not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies on you and your servants and your people, and into your houses; and the houses of the Egyptians shall be filled with swarms of flies, and also the ground on which they stand. 18 But on that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, where my people dwell, so that no swarms of flies shall be there; that you may know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth. 19 Thus I will put a division between my people and your people. By tomorrow shall this sign be."'" 20 And the LORD did so; there came great swarms of flies into the house of Pharaoh and into his servants' houses, and in all the land of Egypt the land was ruined by reason of the flies. 

 

 

 

 

It should be noted in the plague of the horseflies that there is no choice for the Pharaoh, that is, there is no consultation; he does not remove the mosquitoes once the Pharaoh repents and then the horseflies come out. Probably because mosquitoes and horseflies correspond to the same moment in heaven: to that heavenly battle in which angels and archangels attacked the fallen together. But a differentiation had to be made between the participants. Name that first it was the angels and then the archangels came together, because later it will be God Himself who will intervene. The reason why the hierarchy is indicated is that we will all, sooner or later, fight according to our ability, this is complemented by the steps corresponding to this plague, steps 8 and 7.

 

 

The 5th plague: livestock die.

The eves perform a worse sin than the adams, because they desire the Essence of God, although they do not rise. As I have said several times, for justice the eves can not receive God except through the work of the adams; Just as they were condemned by the former. I think this is the plague that erases the eves from the Book of Life. Here "cattle of Israel" in contrast, would be either the Adam's or the faithful angels.

 

Éxo 9:2  For if you refuse to let them go and still hold them, 3  behold, the hand of the LORD will fall with a very severe plague upon your cattle which are in the field, the horses, the asses, the camels, the herds, and the flocks. 4  But the LORD will make a distinction between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt, so that nothing shall die of all that belongs to the people of Israel."'" 5  And the LORD set a time, saying, "Tomorrow the LORD will do this thing in the land." 6  And on the morrow the LORD did this thing; all the cattle of the Egyptians died, but of the cattle of the people of Israel not one died.

 

The 6th plague: The ulcers.

I think it refers to how our soul or empty pouch containing the empty Spirit is then impaired (ulcerated) unable to receive the Holy Spirit. We are no longer desires of God even when we next become men. This happens to men, cattle and magicians, that is to say, Adams, Eves and demons (or raised).

It is not the same as what happened in the previous plague because the ulcers are indeed produced to all those who lose the spirit, the fallen also are not given body (they are hate), but the Eve in the world have the impossibility of hearing the Lord for themselves. They are one of the millions of walking dead out there, but they are also incapable of changing their situation by themselves. It is true that as I have already said, the Adams can revive them through their love

(they can show them God in their life) in the same way that they were killed for love of Eve.

 

Éxo 9:8 And the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "Take handfuls of ashes from the kiln, and let Moses throw them toward heaven in the sight of Pharaoh. 9 And it shall become fine dust over all the land of Egypt, and become boils breaking out in sores on man and beast throughout all the land of Egypt." 10 So they took ashes from the kiln, and stood before Pharaoh, and Moses threw them toward heaven, and it became boils breaking out in sores on man and beast. 11 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils were upon the magicians and upon all the Egyptians.

 

 

The 7th plague: The hail.

 This is not so clear. It says here that he will send all the plagues at once (14). That all the cattle and men who do not get into the house will die. He says that those who fear God did it and those who did not, died. Perhaps it refers to the need to repent of what has been done in order to move forward. We have seen that only repentance was not enough to recover the Holy Spirit, because by justice if we (the adams or the eves), recovered It, the devils would have to recover It, as All of us empty ourselves of God for infidelity or unlove. Even so, repentance, the fear of God was necessary for one day to be able to recover the Spirit in the plans of God. Perhaps the mosquitoes and the horseflies referred to the struggle of angels and archangels, but here it is God the Father who is present. The house can refer to our soul as in the 10th plague. To redirect ourselves. Not wanting more than we are.

It is interesting to see how in this plague (the only one), there are Egyptians who shelter their servants and cattle. Who are these servants and cattle? He speaks again of the Eve and perhaps of the Adam, since they (plus the Eve) have idolized the fallen, followed them and turned their backs on God. It may also refer to the fact that it was the last chance for the fallen to repent. If they were pro-rebellion activists, and had Eve-Adam followers (of whom this is stated in the Bible, who idolized reptiles...), perhaps they were given an ultimatum to appease themselves. Or perhaps none was yet fallen (demon) to this point; when after this moment or ultimatum they did not surrender. Then in the verse (31) it says: The linen and barley were spoiled, for the barley was in spike and the linen was blossoming.  (32) The wheat and spelt were not spoiled, because they were late.

Here it also refers to the different types of angels. As in the apocalypse, I believe that barley refers to the Eve, linen perhaps to the Adam and wheat to the faithful angels. This should be investigated further.

Another note is that this is the 7th plague, the eastern number (7) which, as explained above, symbolizes perfection.

Éxo 9:14 For this time I will send all my plagues upon your heart, and upon your servants and your people, that you may know that there is none like me in all the earth.

Éxo 9:18 Behold, tomorrow about this time I will cause very heavy hail to fall, such as never has been in Egypt from the day it was founded until now. 19  Now therefore send, get your cattle and all that you have in the field into safe shelter; for the hail shall come down upon every man and beast that is in the field and is not brought home, and they shall die."'" 20  Then he who feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his slaves and his cattle flee into the houses; 21  but he who did not regard the word of the LORD left his slaves and his cattle in the field.

 

Exo 9:22 And the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch forth your hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man and beast and every plant of the field, throughout the land of Egypt."  23 Then Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven; and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and fire ran down to the earth. And the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt; 24 there was hail, and fire flashing continually in the midst of the hail, very heavy hail, such as had never been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation 25 The hail struck down everything that was in the field throughout all the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and the hail struck down every plant of the field, and shattered every tree of the field.  26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the people of Israel were, there was no hail.  27 Then Pharaoh sent, and called Moses and Aaron, and said to them, "I have sinned this time; the LORD is in the right, and I and my people are in the wrong.  28 Entreat the LORD; for there has been enough of this thunder and hail; I will let you go, and you shall stay no longer."  29 Moses said to him, "As soon as I have gone out of the city, I will stretch out my hands to the LORD; the thunder will cease, and there will be no more hail, that you may know that the earth is the LORD's.  30 But as for you and your servants, I know that you do not yet fear the LORD God."  31 (The flax and the barley were ruined, for the barley was in the ear and the flax was in bud.  32 But the wheat and the spelt were not ruined, for they are late in coming up.)  33 So Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and stretched out his hands to the LORD; and the thunder and the hail ceased, and the rain no longer poured upon the earth.  34 But when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunder had ceased, he sinned yet again, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.  35 So the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people of Israel go; as the LORD had spoken through Moses.

 

 

 

 

The 8th plague: The locusts.

It is the moment when God has us all standing firm and asking for explanations. And, above all, it is the moment when Satan and his people blackmail God; they cry out to righteousness to receive the same fate as the Adam-Eve. Reason why the world or our salvation history develops as it does.

The Lord wants to save the Adam especially (3... Let my people be crushed to worship me, 9... we will go with our children, the elderly...)

He also refers to the actual moment of expulsion. Locusts will cover the land, which until then was the garden of Eden.

It is the punishment that falls on all of us who are left after the hailstorm, after God Himself has put order in the battle. What happened in heaven is so serious that perhaps even the faithful angels themselves were questioned, because Luzbel was an angel before and had conceived iniquity. But finally, these remain: '11 go if you want only men'.

 The trees and their fruits disappear, perhaps the freedom and person of the fallen (in all the land of Egypt). Our existence, empty of God, moves on to another place.

Éxo 10:3 So Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, and said to him, "Thus says the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, 'How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? Let my people go, that they may serve me.  4  For if you refuse to let my people go, behold, tomorrow I will bring locusts into your country,  5  and they shall cover the face of the land, so that no one can see the land; and they shall eat what is left to you after the hail, and they shall eat every tree of yours which grows in the field,  6  and they shall fill your houses, and the houses of all your servants and of all the Egyptians; as neither your fathers nor your grandfathers have seen, from the day they came on earth to this day.'" Then he turned and went out from Pharaoh.  7  And Pharaoh's servants said to him, "How long shall this man be a snare to us? Let the men go, that they may serve the LORD their God; do you not yet understand that Egypt is ruined?"  8  So Moses and Aaron were brought back to Pharaoh; and he said to them, "Go, serve the LORD your God; but who are to go?"  9  And Moses said, "We will go with our young and our old; we will go with our sons and daughters and with our flocks and herds, for we must hold a feast to the LORD."  10  And he said to them, "The LORD be with you, if ever I let you and your little ones go! Look, you have some evil purpose in mind.  11  No! Go, the men among you, and serve the LORD, for that is what you desire." And they were driven out from Pharaoh's presence.  12  Then the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come upon the land of Egypt, and eat every plant in the land, all that the hail has left."  13  So Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the LORD brought an east wind upon the land all that day and all that night; and when it was morning the east wind had brought the locusts. 15 For they covered the face of the whole land, so that the land was darkened, and they ate all the plants in the land and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left; not a green thing remained, neither tree nor plant of the field, through all the land of Egypt..

 

 

The 9th plague: The darkness.

This is the time when God is hiding from us. We come to have a new "life" in the new man nature, in which we are born without knowing where we come from or where we are going. This is also represented as the tower of Babel and Noah, and although the tower of Babel emphasizes the distinction of religions, the origin is the same: the darkness or hiding of God that allow us to choose without fear of reprisals, That is to say in freedom. The darkness here in the world does not allow us to see each other either. In heaven we were able to feel each other, for the Holy Spirit flowed through all of us, here no longer until the passion, and then the one who is filled with the Spirit will not do so in the heavenly intensity and will not feel the brother in the same way as there.

 

.

Éxo 10:21 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand toward heaven that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, a darkness to be felt." 22 So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days; 23 they did not see one another, nor did any rise from his place for three days; but all the people of Israel had light where they dwelt.  24 Then Pharaoh called Moses, and said, "Go, serve the LORD; your children also may go with you; only let your flocks and your herds remain behind." 25 But Moses said, "You must also let us have sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God. 26 Our cattle also must go with us; not a hoof shall be left behind, for we must take of them to serve the LORD our God, and we do not know with what we must serve the LORD until we arrive there."

Exo 10:29 Moses said, "As you say! I will not see your face again."

 

 

 

 

The 10th plague: The death of all the firstborn. Announcement of Jesus Christ.

Thus, says Yahweh: At midnight, I will pass through the midst of Egypt. All the firstborn shall die in the land of Egypt.

At midnight, it seems to refer to half of our dark period, the life of humanity in the world. Let's see why all the firstborns say. Jesus Christ is the first created person that contains the exact essence of God (unique in the latter except God the Father and the very essence or Holy Spirit). To the extent that we all participated in the Holy Trinity by being created persons and maintaining in a small part or intensity the Essence of God, for all of us Jesus Christ is the firstborn. If I am the smallest of a family of four brothers, my elder brother to me is my first-born brother. Thus, Jesus Christ is the Firstborn of all the following created persons. Both of those who became demons, like cattle (eves) like all of us.

 

The rest I have already said several times: It is the death of the firstborn, his sacrifice on the cross and his infinite act of love which makes it possible for man to be filled with the Holy Spirit again, that is to say: ESCAPING THE SLAVERY OF THE PHARAOH. Remember: the body dies; the person of Christ as God's redeemer does not cease to be, and although the Spirit is taken away from him during the Cross, he dies loving in an absolute way, and by the permanence of the person in absolute love (exclusively as a man) the Holy Spirit returns in the same intensity of God, in the new nature forged in the crucible, (this happens just a second before the body dies perhaps). Thus, as in nature man dies loving even under torture, he keeps the Essence of God exact and this is what saves and redeems us as a new nature capable of receiving God (infinite love). And why should it be Jesus Christ? For it was to be God himself who gave himself in his Son, so that he might turn away from any hint of injustice. Take the case of the one who builds houses for a group of people. If I want to house some poor people, will I tell those who already had their houses to build the new houses? No, well, that would give them power over the new houses. What if the former also owed me a debt, wouldn't they negotiate with those houses they built? Yeah. For this reason if he personally makes the new houses he will save himself the quarrels. Well, in this example the justice involved in our salvation is not really perceived, but we can get an idea. It was to be God Himself who validated or built man's nature and not only as a very easy body for Him (there is no injustice here) but as worthy to contain the Holy Spirit, Life.

 

Éxo 11:1 The LORD said to Moses, "Yet one plague more I will bring upon Pharaoh and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence; when he lets you go, he will drive you away completely

Exo 11:4 And Moses said, "Thus says the LORD: About midnight I will go forth in the midst of Egypt;  5 and all the first-born in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first-born of Pharaoh who sits upon his throne, even to the first-born of the maidservant who is behind the mill; and all the first-born of the cattle.  6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there has never been, nor ever shall be again.  7 But against any of the people of Israel, either man or beast, not a dog shall growl; that you may know that the LORD makes a distinction between the Egyptians and Israel.

 

There are some details to take into account in the description of the pests. The first and most important is that God hardens the heart of Pharaoh (referring to the earth, not Satan) to manifest his power and to proclaim his name throughout the earth. Indeed, God has no time. Although he respects our decisions, he can go at his whim from the beginning to the end of the history of humanity and act on it for our salvation, in the knowledge of what will happen, but respecting our freedom.

Thus, Here, He draws our history of salvation with what happened before all times and what would happen on the cross of Christ. Thus He made the day of the sacrifice of the lambs or goats unblemished on the day of the (Jewish) Passover with the day of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the day of our Passover.

Thus He made the two jambs and the lintel of their houses anointed with the blood of the lambs so that death would not enter them. Because this will be a sign that with the blood of Christ (the lamb without stain) closes that door that, broken, open and ulcerate, prevented that we could retain the Holy Spirit; that door that Prevented life from entering into us and kept us in death. Equating thus, to those houses with our own soul.

There are other details, such as in some specific plagues that will not touch his people, the people of Israel. I understand that, as far as heaven is concerned, it refers to the faithful angels, other times, among us, to the Adams.

Anyway, I have not been able to go much deeper into these readings because it is urgent that the book is finished. Those who know the Bible a little will be able to arrive at conclusions that are more precise than mine, but I still believe that everything is going as described here, and, like the rest of the writing, it coincides exactly with the Bible and with the Word of God from before the origin of the times. Nor have I been able to compare translations; As an annotation, I will tell you that in the Jerusalem Bible it says that the first verses of the 1st plague, as described here, come from the Yahweh tradition, which I really do not know what it means. That is why I know that the experts can draw much more fruit from the perspective I describe here, from which I have drawn; In the end that's what matters. And when they realize the obvious, there will be nothing left but to unite us in the love of God, for really everything is revealed by His will. That which He wanted to hide, today reveals it. How significant is this! In itself it is a sign that speaks of the proximity of its new coming.

 

 

 

 

 

The plagues have a logical order according to what happened in heaven as well; perhaps some that speak of how our being was could have happened almost at the same time as others (for example, the 1st and 2nd); does this suggest that there was some kind of time in heaven? On the Steps to be seen, almost everything described is a consequence of or is ‘earned’ in passion, so they would be almost immediate. However, it seems clear that they are placed in strict order in the Exodus to coincide with the plagues. Even the 6th step (water from the stone, in reference to the Eve cure) that has not yet occurred, is aligned with the 5th plague (the deafness of the Eve or fools).


La Jacob's Staircase (ascent)

The 1st Step.  and 10th plague. The sacrifice of the firstborn.

 

As we said Christ is the first created and only one who contains the Essence of God in the intensity of God. But He becomes man (sin, citizen of Egypt), to escape from the righteousness that Satan demanded of us, to make us fit and to save us.

Passion is the real moment from which we can receive the Holy Spirit, see God again, whoever has his Spirit. The following steps are a consequence of this, which will make the downward direction bounce upward.

It is worth noting (35) that they ask for silver gold and clothing; all representative of the Holy Spirit, though less so, silver (also treasure), perhaps this distinction is for 'Adam/Eve' or is it just the 30 coins on the plague side?

Finally, justice is not a pretext, after fulfilling Jesus with it (asking the Egyptians) we receive that Spirit, but also stripping Egypt of it because we'leave' them without a shield, without their kidnapped victim, us, they can no longer ask for our same fate. After many years of kidnapping (42), the Lord, awake (awake in vigil) in the night (our world), brings us out of Egypt.

The circumcised skin represents sin, getting rid of the old man (if clothing often symbolizes the Spirit, this physical part of the same man, sin). It is something symbolic that represents that we cannot receive communion in the Eucharist without baptizing or even with sin. We cannot receive Christ without being baptized, but as a defense, neither can we receive the Holy Spirit with sins (dislike), also for other religious confessions; for just as Christ makes all human nature fit, this is written for all of us (even if it is a symbol).

 

Éxo 12:34 So the people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading bowls being bound up in their mantles on their shoulders.  35 The people of Israel had also done as Moses told them, for they had asked of the Egyptians jewelry of silver and of gold, and clothing; 36 and the LORD had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they let them have what they asked. Thus they despoiled the Egyptians. 

 

Éxo 12:41   And at the end of four hundred and thirty years, on that very day, all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

Éxo 12:43 And the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "This is the ordinance of the passover: no foreigner shall eat of it; 44 but every slave that is bought for money may eat of it after you have circumcised him.  45 No sojourner or hired servant may eat of it.  46 In one house shall it be eaten; you shall not carry forth any of the flesh outside the house; and you shall not break a bone of it.  47 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.  48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with you and would keep the passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, then he may come near and keep it; he shall be as a native of the land. But no uncircumcised person shall eat of it.

 

The 2nd Step.    The Pillar of Fire, the pillar of protective clouds.

This step is that it cancels out or counteracts the ninth plague in which God made Himself disappear from us. Now the Holy Spirit within us (God Himself) guides us through the darkness of the world symbolized as the pillar of fire, but, moreover, the one who possesses Him lives the sufferings with hope and in a more 'softened' way; this is the pillar of clouds. He who has the Holy Spirit within him already has the kingdom of heaven in him; somehow he already sees God.

 

 

 

Exo 13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night;

 

3rd Step. Red Sea Passage.

This step eliminates the eighth plague in which Satan cried out to righteousness to receive the same fate from us for having been left empty like us. This is what'bound' God, for He could not save us without saving them, and since they were hatred He cannot mingle with them (He cannot receive the Holy Spirit). Opening (21) the Red Sea speaks of opening a way for us among death. We can now pass through it, and close the Red Sea behind us, over the Egyptians, which means that the bond of justice that we had with them is severed. Our destiny is separated from theirs, which was and is death (symbolized by their drowning in the sea).

 In the first verse (20), it refers to how God prevented the righteous who lived before Christ (passion) from being tortured by demons in hell by dying. He kept them apart until He 'picked them up' when Jesus Christ came down to hell.

 

Éxo 14:20 coming between the host of Egypt and the host of Israel. And there was the cloud and the darkness; and the night passed without one coming near the other all night.  21  Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD drove the sea back by a strong east wind all night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.  22  And the people of Israel went into the midst of the sea on dry ground, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.  23  The Egyptians pursued, and went in after them into the midst of the sea, all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his horsemen.  24  And in the morning watch the LORD in the pillar of fire and of cloud looked down upon the host of the Egyptians, and discomfited the host of the Egyptians,  25  clogging their chariot wheels so that they drove heavily; and the Egyptians said, "Let us flee from before Israel; for the LORD fights for them against the Egyptians."  26  Then the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the sea, that the water may come back upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen."  27  So Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to its wonted flow when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled into it, and the LORD routed the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.  28  The waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen and all the host of Pharaoh that had followed them into the sea; not so much as one of them remained.  29  But the people of Israel walked on dry ground through the sea, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.  30  Thus the LORD saved Israel that day from the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the seashore.

 

 

 

 

 

Éxo 15:12  Thou didst stretch out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.  13 "Thou hast led in thy steadfast love the people whom thou hast redeemed, thou hast guided them by thy strength to thy holy abode 14 The peoples have heard, they tremble; pangs have seized on the inhabitants of Philistia.  15 Now are the chiefs of Edom dismayed; the leaders of Moab, trembling seizes them; all the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.  16 Terror and dread fall upon them; because of the greatness of thy arm, they are as still as a stone, till thy people, O LORD, pass by, till the people pass by whom thou hast purchased.  17 Thou wilt bring them in, and plant them on thy own mountain, the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thy abode, the sanctuary, O LORD, which thy hands have established.  18 The LORD will reign for ever and ever."

 

 

You stretched out your right hand, they were swallowed up by the earth (15:12) Jesus Christ is seated at the right hand of the Father. The right hand of the Lord is Jesus Christ Himself, in saying extended it refers to the life of Jesus on Earth, specifically to the moment of the passion again. The moment when God rescues us from our kidnappers and leads us to his holy dwelling place, which on earth is the moment when He brings his Holy Spirit, the Kingdom of Heaven, to us.

He continues to speak of the terror that the demons felt, for he left them without a shield.

While your people were passing by', speak of the history of mankind, for it was not at the beginning but in the time of the Romans.

 

 

The 4th Step. The water is sweetened.

 

This step counteracts the 7th step, the hail step. It symbolizes the Love of God; if the hail symbolized that He Himself rose up 'angry' to put order in His 'ranks'; or rather it shows us the incompatibility of the Holy Spirit with what we became; here it shows us God as He is: Love, for it is not that God changed, but that we changed, but now He does not flee from us, for He did so before. Now it is coming around and soon we will be able to drink it again or contain it in our new container, the man (this is symbolized in the next one). Again he refers to the cross, the wood that makes this possible, that changes everything. In addition, it also refers to some norms or laws, advancing the commandments, which are also a further step.

Éxo 15:22 Then Moses led Israel onward from the Red Sea, and they went into the wilderness of Shur; they went three days in the wilderness and found no water.  23 When they came to Marah, they could not drink the water of Marah because it was bitter; therefore it was named Marah.  24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, "What shall we drink?"  25 And he cried to the LORD; and the LORD showed him a tree, and he threw it into the water, and the water became sweet. There the LORD made for them a statute and an ordinance and there he proved them, 26 saying, "If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give heed to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I put upon the Egyptians; for I am the LORD, your healer."  27 Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees; and they encamped there by the water.

 

The 5th Step. Quails and Mana

This step counteracts the 6th plague, the ulcer plague. If we remember, ulcers make us unable to receive the Holy Spirit. The lack of love has'broken' our soul and we have emptied ourselves. On this step we are once again able to rise from the world, to separate ourselves. This is symbolized by quails; I have already commented that, in various parts of the Bible, birds symbolize the Adams, who have ears for God. As a notation, Num 11:31 specifies that quails come from the sea (symbol of death). But even with ears we needed to be capable of the Spirit. Thus, we are given that flesh symbolizing that our ulcers are healed, but, moreover, on this very step we are given what we lost when we sore: the Holy Spirit, symbolized as that manna that fell from heaven. The one appears in the afternoon (passion) and the other the next day, the Holy Spirit.

In (16:18) I think it is referred to that each one has specific needs of the Spirit or different sizes, but that when we get to heaven, we will all be full in our size; perhaps the one who has taken less, through purgatory will be completed... I don't know, this is speculating more than anything else.

This Holy Spirit is already available from the first step (the passion) to the end of the world or the arrival to the Promised Land (35) for those who achieve it.

 

Éxo 16:11 And the LORD said to Moses,  12  "I have heard the murmurings of the people of Israel; say to them, 'At twilight you shall eat flesh, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread; then you shall know that I am the LORD your God.'"  13  In the evening quails came up and covered the camp; and in the morning dew lay round about the camp 14 And when the dew had gone up, there was on the face of the wilderness a fine, flake-like thing, fine as hoarfrost on the ground.  15 When the people of Israel saw it, they said to one another, "What is it?" For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, "It is the bread which the LORD has given you to eat.  16 This is what the LORD has commanded: 'Gather of it, every man of you, as much as he can eat; you shall take an omer apiece, according to the number of the persons whom each of you has in his tent.'"  17 And the people of Israel did so; they gathered, some more, some less.  18 But when they measured it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; each gathered according to what he could eat.

Éxo 16:35 And the people of Israel ate the manna forty years, till they came to a habitable land; they ate the manna, till they came to the border of the land of Canaan.

Núm 11:31 And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and it brought quails from the sea, and let them fall beside the camp…

 

The 6th Step. Moses makes water come out of a stone.

This step counteracts the fifth plague, the death of the cattle. As I was saying, these cattle represent the EVAs who are deaf. To make water sprout from the stone represents the same thing. This step has not yet been taken, for the so-called fools in the Bible are still fools. However, it has been prophesied on several occasions. For example:  

Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams;

All the people left the desert of Sin in stages' (1) can refer to the passage of humanity through the world, from generation to generation. Finally, the miracle of the stone takes place at the end of time.

Well, this can't be proven until it happens, but I think we're almost there.

 

Éxo 17:1 All the congregation of the people of Israel moved on from the wilderness of Sin by stages, according to the commandment of the LORD, and camped at Reph'idim; but there was no water for the people to drink.  2 Therefore the people found fault with Moses, and said, "Give us water to drink." And Moses said to them, "Why do you find fault with me? Why do you put the LORD to the proof?"  3 But the people thirsted there for water, and the people murmured against Moses, and said, "Why did you bring us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst?"  4 So Moses cried to the LORD, "What shall I do with this people? They are almost ready to stone me."  5 And the LORD said to Moses, "Pass on before the people, taking with you some of the elders of Israel; and take in your hand the rod with which you struck the Nile, and go.  6 Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock at Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water shall come out of it, that the people may drink." And Moses did so, in the sight of the elders of Israel.  7 And he called the name of the place Massah and Mer'ibah, because of the faultfinding of the children of Israel, and because they put the LORD to the proof by saying, "Is the LORD among us or not?"

 

 The 7th and 8th Steps.

Battle against Amalek and the council of Jethro.

These counteract the 4th and 3rd plagues, in which mosquitoes and flies or horseflies attack the people of Egypt. Curiously, although he distinguished between the two plagues, he did not give the pharaoh the opportunity to repent between them, as he did with the other plagues. According to this, as I said, a distinction is made between the attack of angels and archangels, but it is a single battle. Specifying a 'fight' hierarchy.

Here he also speaks of a battle and a hierarchy and it is also a family struggle (descendants of Esau and Jacob).

But Amalek represents the demons on earth (16) and this time we fight against them, but with the help of God (Father and Son - arms on the cross). The opposite of what happened in the parallel plagues.

Jethro's counsel, right afterward (18:1), invites Moses to delegate to righteous men, so that a hierarchy is established for the development of camp life. This, in addition to telling us that we keep our 'soul' sizes here, tells us that we will be tempted by demons that are comparable; God does not burden us with what we cannot. As in the plagues these two steps could have become one.

 

Éxo 17:8  Then came Am'alek and fought with Israel at Reph'idim.  9 And Moses said to Joshua, "Choose for us men, and go out, fight with Am'alek; tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand."  10 So Joshua did as Moses told him, and fought with Am'alek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.  11 Whenever Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed; and whenever he lowered his hand, Am'alek prevailed.  12  But Moses' hands grew weary; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat upon it, and Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; so his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.  13 And Joshua mowed down Am'alek and his people with the edge of the sword.  14 And the LORD said to Moses, "Write this as a memorial in a book and recite it in the ears of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Am'alek from under heaven. 15 And Moses built an altar and called the name of it, The LORD is my banner, 16 saying, "A hand upon the banner of the LORD! The LORD will have war with Am'alek from generation to generation."

Éxo 18:20 and you shall teach them the statutes and the decisions, and make them know the way in which they must walk and what they must do.  21 Moreover choose able men from all the people, such as fear God, men who are trustworthy and who hate a bribe; and place such men over the people as rulers of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties, and of tens.  22 And let them judge the people at all times; every great matter they shall bring to you, but any small matter they shall decide themselves; so it will be easier for you, and they will bear the burden with you.  23 If you do this, and God so commands you, then you will be able to endure, and all this people also will go to their place in peace." y podrás resistir, y el pueblo se volverá a casa en paz».

 

 

 

 

The 9th Step. Israel on Mount Sinai.

This step counteracts, only in part, the second plague, in which we come out of the water like frogs, no longer like fish, and move away from God. Now it is God who is approaching us: on Mount Sinai, He says that 'I have carried you on eagle's wings (Holy Spirit) and brought you to Me'.

But even so we cannot reach Him as before. We can't go up Mount Sinai. Now we will have man-made nature forever, and though we may reach heaven in infinite happiness, we will not be what we once were: angels. If the passage of the water (God), fish, to be empty, was symbolized by the frog and its jumps, now God appears on the top of Sinai to which we can not even approach. Even though the Holy Spirit has reached us, we will not reach the lost heavenly nature. Just as the frog spoke to us of the impossibility of dwelling with the Spirit, since they voluntarily go out to die outside the river, this step speaks to us of the recovery of that possibility of cohabitation, but at the same time it informs us, as did the second plague, of our change of nature.  This step is closely related to the next step.

Éxo 19:3 And Moses went up to God, and the LORD called to him out of the mountain, saying, "Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the people of Israel:  4  You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself 5 Now therefore, if you will obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my own possession among all peoples; for all the earth is mine,  6  and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel."

Éxo 19:10 And the LORD said to Moses, "Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their garments,  11  and be ready by the third day; for on the third day the LORD will come down upon Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.  12 And you shall set bounds for the people round about, saying, 'Take heed that you do not go up into the mountain or touch the border of it; whoever touches the mountain shall be put to death;

 

 

The 10th Step. The 10 Commandments

 

This step reverses the first pest. The water, sign of the Holy Spirit, becomes Blood. We become disconnected from God; this is the first plague, although later he speaks of the consequences (frog, mosquitoes...). That's why everything starts. We cease to be in God and share his Spirit to become blood (there the symbol of death). The commandments are a 'structure' that remakes and reconnects us. Like the sticks and ribbons that scaffold a graft onto a plant, the commandments unite us back to God and why? Because most of them are based on Love and others on fidelity. If the steps were necessary to get there, the commandments are the hitch that holds us to heaven.

But the 10 commandments are given twice. What does this mean? The first time refers to our first lost nature: the heavenly one. That is why he speaks of betrayal of God in Idolatry of the ram (32:1). Again, the Holy Spirit is represented or symbolized by gold, which is 'mined' more from women than from men: (women, sons and daughters). This refers to the Eve who covet the apple, the Essence of God or become gods of themselves. In the 'children', I see the Adams, for they represent innocence that is carried away by the Eve (by the mothers here). Notice that the first time he gives these 10 commandments, (heavenly nature) they come from God the Father (31:18); not only the written, but also the tablets themselves, but not the second time.

 

Éxo 20:1 And God spoke all these words, saying, 2  "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.  3 "You shall have no other gods before me.  4  "You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;  5  you shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,  6  but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.  7 "You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.  8  "Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. …

Éxo 31:18 Exo 31:18  And he gave to Moses, when he had made an end of speaking with him upon Mount Sinai, the two tables of the testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.

Éxo 32:1 When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people gathered themselves together to Aaron, and said to him, "Up, make us gods, who shall go before us; as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him."  2 And Aaron said to them, "Take off the rings of gold which are in the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters, and bring them to me."  3  So all the people took off the rings of gold which were in their ears, and brought them to Aaron.  4  And he received the gold at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, and made a molten calf; and they said, "These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt!"

 

 

 Thus, the tablet itself is made by Moses (prefiguration of Christ), though not written inside (34:1). After the breaking of the first tablets, he (Moses) personally makes them as copies of the first ones so that God (He says at the beginning -34:1-), will again chisel the commandments. That Christ validates our human nature (symbolized here as the tables without inscription), so that we can shelter the Holy Spirit within us (= that which is written inside us by the finger of God). But, although in 34:1 it says that He (God) will write the words on them, in 34:27 He tells Moses Why? Because Moses is the prefiguration of Christ and He is in God the Father and vice versa. Let's see, in the verses (6,7) it says: The Lord passed before him proclaiming `Lord, Lord, God...' But he is not the person of God (father) speaking of Himself, but Christ interceding for us in heaven after the betrayal; he still has no human nature. It shows us what happened before the creation of the world, as a vision that comes from heaven (5); being so, God the Father is not proclaiming Himself but God the Son to the Father. In the next verse on (8), it says: Moses bowed and fell to the ground, this refers to the moment when Christ became man (earth). In the following (9) it says 'If I have obtained your favor, let my Lord go with us' referring to the moment when man's nature validates to receive the Holy Spirit (the moment of passion), He can already come or enter into us. The answer to this is in (11), the covenant by which with your help we will recover the Promised Land (heaven), expelling the Amorites, the Canaanites...

 

The LORD said to Moses, "Cut two tables of stone like the first; and I will write upon the tables the words that were on the first tables, which you broke 2 Be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning to Mount Sinai, and present yourself there to me on the top of the mountain.  3  No man shall come up with you, and let no man be seen throughout all the mountain; let no flocks or herds feed before that mountain."  4  So Moses cut two tables of stone like the first; and he rose early in the morning and went up on Mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand two tables of stone.  5 And the LORD descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.  6  The LORD passed before him, and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness,  7  keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children , to the third and the fourth generation."

Éxo 34:8 And Moses made haste to bow his head toward the earth, and worshiped.   Éxo 34:9 And he said, "If now I have found favor in thy sight, O Lord, let the Lord, I pray thee, go in the midst of us, although it is a stiff-necked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thy inheritance."  10 And he said, "Behold, I make a covenant. Before all your people I will do marvels, such as have not been wrought in all the earth or in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the LORD; for it is a terrible thing that I will do with you.  11 "Observe what I command you this day. Behold, I will drive out before you the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Per'izzites, the Hivites, and the Jeb'usites.

Éxo 34:27 And the LORD said to Moses, "Write these words; in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel."  28  And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he neither ate bread nor drank water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

 

 

In 34,27 God also speaks of the covenant He makes with 'Moses' (prefiguration of Christ) and with Israel. In fact, our new covenant is made in Christ; thanks to him we can reconnect with God, not in vain, but rather name `Moses' (prefiguration of Christ) rather than Israel, making it a key or angular piece, otherwise why not name only the people? Wasn't Moses part of the people?

 

 

 

 

 

 

The end of The Arrival in Heaven. final La Llegada al Cielo.

 

It's already said. We have been saved from our inability to receive God. From the passion we can return to heaven, something that the Holy Spirit helps us to do.

Many of the rules of coexistence, beyond the 10 commandments (many inspired by Love), that God provided to the people of Israel, were to artificially subject what is naturally subject to Love. It is true that others were precisely given so that without love they could live together. To keep a large plastic bag open upside down, holding it with hands, so that it is open in all its volume, it would take many hands and still not be swollen at all; however, with a hair dryer or an air hose blowing from below, it would fill completely and still push us up. This is the Holy Spirit from whom we are disconnected, who from passion can return to us.

Well, Solomon, wise among the wise, found this antagonistic relationship between some of the plagues and some of the events of the Exodus (we see it in the book of Wisdom), but the Lord hid the meaning of this from him. He could not imagine that the plagues described our descent here from heaven itself and that those events initiated at Christ's Passover described the ladder that led us back there.

All that is said is very clear to anyone who reads this carefully. If I were a Jew I would be proud to have been chosen as my people to introduce the savior of humanity; to have been chosen to draw the history of Salvation and to be able to make it present to us who dwell here below. If I were a Jew I would be the most fervent of Christians, for what will be clear to other nations should be crystal clear to the Jewish people.

 

 

About Jacob's Staircase

 

In Jacob's dream, Gen 28:10, Isaac was shown a staircase through which angels went down and up. As I have described, the events of the Exodus from the Passover have a meaning linked to the corresponding plagues. In this way, the plagues in exegesis are revealed as events that happened to us from the time we lived in heaven to the time we reached earth. In fact, until the Passover of Christ, the first event or step upwards without which the following could not have taken place. These steps, moreover, are in strict order and correspond to each of their respective pests.

Thus, as I said, the staircase is made up of a descent like the plagues and a climb like the following events of the Exodus. To think that Isaac was figuratively shown this ladder not only coincides with the message of his dream, but confirms what I believe I have already demonstrated or will demonstrate in this essay. We were indeed angels and went down to earth in another nature for our salvation. Thank God we can return to heaven and the way to do it was described in the Exodus thousands of years ago, as these steps whose base or angular step is the passion of Jesus Christ.

I invite you to ask yourselves these questions:

Why did the Lord want it to happen this way: with clear steps up and down that correspond? It was enough for Isaac to show him the dream. Was it so important to leave it so exposed for our time? It may be one more evidence for the people of Israel, but in any case, why does the Lord want this to be revealed now? It seems a further sign that the prophesied union of nations and the subsequent 'quench and release' are near. Perhaps our Israeli brethren will be the first to recognize the Truth? Will the Muslim brethren follow them by seeing their example and taking this knowledge seriously? Others? Or will it be all at once? I don't know how the Lord will do it, but He will do it because it is written: not only those who hear in religions but also the deaf will hear.

 

Gén 28:10 Jacob left Beer-sheba, and went toward Haran.  11 And he came to a certain place, and stayed there that night, because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place to sleep.  12 And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it!  13  And behold, the LORD stood above it and said, "I am the LORD, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and to your descendants;  14  and your descendants shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and by you and your descendants shall all the families of the earth bless themselves.  15 Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done that of which I have spoken to you."  16 Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, "Surely the LORD is in this place; and I did not know it."

 

 

 

 

 

 Exegesis Psalm 88

In this Psalm from the Torah or Old Testament, there are three parts. The first is praise to God from the “narrator”, the second the word of God Himself quoted in Psalm, which here is printed in bold, and finally the lament of the “narrator” at not seeing the second part, the word God, fulfilled, from 38 to 52.

It seems that the narrator or poet, in the “chosen one” referred to in the word of God, sees David at all times, not one of his race. However, let’s see what He says:

25 I shall establish his power over the sea,

26 'He will cry to me, "You are my father, my God, the rock of my salvation!"

27 So I shall make him my first-born…

36 … his throne like the sun before me,

 

Let’s see what Mark says:

Gospel of Mark 1: 10-11

And at once, as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit, like a dove, descending on him.

And a voice came from heaven, 'You are my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on you.'

I put this passage, which to a Christian is a bit “scandalous”, to equate the word first-born (which doesn’t necessarily mean He had more children, but just that he was the first), to the word favorite. I say it’s a bit scandalous for a Christian because favorite does mean that there are more children, which is perfectly understandable from the theory proposed here: that we were all wishes of God in heaven and that we were created there because of the favorite and firstborn Son: Jesus, who kept God’s essence intact and was “wish” or creation as a person (Son) and also God in essence, as I have explained several times already. In other words, we really were created in the image and likeness of God. As a note I will say that before the passion of Jesus, which when this passage is given, we weren’t yet able to be children of God again – adopted in Jesus Christ; remember that when we fell, we lost what we were and were walking dead or empty of God, with a new nature unfit to receive Him without the extreme test of Love (this test was necessary for Justice to God’s other wishes, both loyal angels and fallen angels. See 8.5 Justice and Redemption in Jesus Christ p.201).

The Christian faith holds that there is one God and three persons, so how could God say “favorite”? Favorite among whom? It couldn’t be us anymore; among the angels? Could be, but then it would be speaking again of the “wishes” or “persons” as independent created freedoms, not the intact Essence of God, which is what makes Jesus God as well, and makes him a unique Son not only in the packaging (person), but in everything: Person + Essence. To summarize, Jesus is a son, like us, because his independent person or freedom is created in heaven like ours is; he is firstborn because he was the first one created (and because he pleased the Father, He created the rest); and he is Unique because he is the only one who contains the exact Essence of God the Father and the Holy Spirit Itself. His created person was able to hold the Spirit without changing It, exactly as It is.

Thus, the psalm fits perfectly with Jesus, who is descended from David; in the gospels, the apostles worked hard to show it. I didn’t know why, until I saw the prophecies about the lineage of David in the Torah (included later).

Imagine for a moment that this psalm was referring to David. Does he call God his father? We Christians call Him that, but do Jews? I really don’t know. And most of all, does God call him His firstborn son? It doesn’t really fit. And after making all the promises God makes in this text, how is it that what the poet laments in verses 38-52 can happen? Is the word of God not true? Yes it is, and it is true for Jesus Christ in the true battle: Love against iniquity. It is not a battle of the world, nor is it a messiah of the world who is announced in the scriptures and waited for by the Israelites. Of course the poet Ethan couldn’t understand, and so he says: You said this and that... and look at what is happening to us... for how long...?

An important part of this psalm is verse 20:

 

20 'I have found David my servant, and anointed him with my holy oil.

 

Because the Spanish version of the NJB says,

 

20 I have found in David my servant...

 

Which is somewhat different, because saying “in David” seems to refer to something of David’s; this could also be understood in the other translation, “I have found David”, although it would be a bit of a stretch. Anyway, this was written for the Jews and God conveyed this scripture to them, and as I suppose it was written first in Hebrew, they will know whether or not this meaning fits.

 

25 I shall establish his power over the sea,

 

The sea, as we know, symbolizes death. David died, didn’t he? But Christ…didn’t Christ resurrect Lazarus and himself? They may not admit it, but God makes it clear here.

36 ... his throne like the sun before me,

 

Doesn’t Jesus’ person maintain the very essence of God, which is what makes him God? Who does the sun represent if not God? God the Father’s person speaks of the Essence of Jesus’ person, of God Himself.

 

30-33 Should his descendants desert my law, and not keep to my rulings, should they violate my statutes, and not observe my commandments, then I shall punish their offences with the rod, their guilt with the whip, but I shall never withdraw from him my faithful love, I shall not belie my constancy.

 

This paragraph speaks of our nature, not the Jewish people, or even Christians. In their time, they were outraged by Christ because he said he could cleanse sin. Consider what is proposed in this essay: we are the ones who sinned to death, and God holds us in this new nature. Then it is God Himself who makes that nature valid (through His Son, out of love and in perfect justice, not by force, which would be unjust to the other traitors). Up there, a single sin emptied us of God, but in our new nature, the body holds us so that we don’t fall further, even if we sin. God acts in our history with events that are sometimes very hard, because He wants to recover us, but we continue to be able to receive the Holy Spirit within us when we return to the love of God. And since when? Since we were able to receive the Holy Spirit (6. The Cross p.137), ever since the passion of Jesus Christ; because before, only a few were enlightened (7.3 The Seven Spirits, the Twenty-Four Elders p.159). Thus, “his descendants” refers to the “Man” Nature, dignified or worthy of receiving the Holy Spirit; that is, to all mankind. It would be easy for me to say that it refers to Christians, but no; actually, thanks to Christ, you “only” have to love in order to receive the Holy Spirit. It doesn’t matter if you call yourself a Christian; if you do not love, you will not receive the Spirit, and vice versa (understanding that in all cases it is a gift, receiving it isn’t up to us alone).

And wouldn’t it be unjust if only Christians or Jews could be saved? Wouldn’t it be equally unjust if it were only Spaniards, for example? And for someone who lives on the other side of the planet, who hasn’t had the opportunity to receive the faith that you practice, wouldn’t that be equally unjust? And isn’t God the epitome of Justice? For God, it isn’t white or black; He measures everything. The measurement: the amount of love that you live.

So, as I’ve said, Israel was the chosen people for the history of salvation of the “Man” Nature, which is why this history has a development that mysteriously fits as a part of the personal story of salvation of each of us (slavery <pharaoh=idols, world>, desert <search for God for one who has renounced or escaped from the world>, promised land <Holy Spirit>, fighting the 7 nations of Canaan <fight against the 7 deadly sins>...). And also, now we see that it was speaking to us about our personal and true story, even since Adam and Eve! God does everything in a wonderful way, for the sins of the Jews, then, are our sins, and God used those sins, our sins, to enlighten the new Nature; He turned death into Life, something that only God can do.

This is the last Psalm I add:

 PSalm 68. [For the choirmaster Of David Psalm Song]               

1 Let God arise, let his enemies scatter, let his opponents flee before him.

2 You disperse them like smoke; as wax melts in the presence of a fire, so the wicked melt at the presence of God.

3 The upright rejoice in the presence of God, delighted and crying out for joy.

4 Sing to God, play music to his name, build a road for the Rider of the Clouds, rejoice in Yahweh, dance before him.

5 Father of orphans, defender of widows, such is God in his holy dwelling.

6 God gives the lonely a home to live in, leads prisoners out into prosperity, but rebels must live in the bare wastelands.

7 God, when you set out at the head of your people, when you strode over the desert,

8 the earth rocked, Pause the heavens pelted down rain at the presence of God, at the presence of God, the God of Israel.

9 God, you rained down a shower of blessings, when your heritage was weary you gave it strength.

10 Your family found a home, which you in your generosity provided for the humble.

11 The Lord gave a command, the good news of a countless army.

12 The chieftains of the army are in flight, in flight, and the fair one at home is sharing out the spoils.

13 While you are at ease in the sheepfolds, the wings of the Dove are being covered with silver, and her feathers with a sheen of green gold;

14 when Shaddai scatters the chieftains, through her it snows on the Dark Mountain.

15 A mountain of God, the mountain of Bashan! a haughty mountain, the mountain of Bashan!

16 Why be envious, haughty mountains, of the mountain God has chosen for his dwelling? There God will dwell for ever.

17 The chariots of God are thousand upon thousand; God has come from Sinai to the sanctuary.

18 You have climbed the heights, taken captives, you have taken men as tribute, even rebels that Yahweh God might have a dwelling-place.

19 Blessed be the Lord day after day, he carries us along, God our Saviour.Pause

20 This God of ours is a God who saves; from Lord Yahweh comes escape from death;

21 but God smashes the head of his enemies, the long-haired skull of the prowling criminal. 22 The Lord has said, 'I will bring them back from Bashan, I will bring them back from the depths of the sea, 23 so that you may bathe your feet in blood, and the tongues of your dogs feast on your enemies.' 24 Your processions, God, are for all to see, the processions of my God, of my king, to the sanctuary; 25 singers ahead, musicians behind, in the middle come girls, beating their drums. 26 In choirs they bless God, Yahweh, since the foundation of Israel. 27 Benjamin was there, the youngest in front, the princes of Judah in bright-coloured robes, the princes of Zebulun, the princes of Naphtali. 28 Take command, my God, as befits your power, the power, God, which you have wielded for us, 

29 from your temple high above Jerusalem. Kings will come to you bearing tribute.

30 Rebuke the Beast of the Reeds, that herd of bulls, that people of calves, who bow down with ingots of silver. Scatter the people who delight in war.

31 From Egypt nobles will come, Ethiopia will stretch out its hands to God.

32 Kingdoms of the earth, sing to God, play for 33 the Rider of the Heavens, the primeval heavens.Pause There he speaks, with a voice of power!

34 Acknowledge the power of God. Over Israel his splendour, in the clouds his power.

35 Awesome is God in his sanctuary. He, the God of Israel, gives strength and power to his people. Blessed be God.

 

We are going to study this Psalm according to the 'dual' perspective of the Bible and starting from the heaven.

In 1-2 we are told about the moment of rebellion in heaven, where fallen angels "flee" from their presence (fall).

In 3-4 the rejoicing of the victorious angels.

The 5-6 tells us that God does not let the Eves and the Adams fall, along with the beasts (next to the fallen angels)

The 7-8 can refer to the moment next to God (we were already empty) and not yet on earth but just before arriving here:

In 8-9 the heavens are liquefied (we fall like empty stars) to our new abode, the earth (this comes in 10). We are reanimated: we are given bodies in the new nature so that by living we can mold our souls and later fill ourselves with Him again.

On the 10th and 11th we finally have our new home, the earth. That earth who in her goodness is preparing the humble. He can be Jesus Christ, although in many translations It speaks of the poor, of needy, of us. Jesus is the Word, before the world as the gospel of John says and thanks to Him, an immense army will be saved and thanks to him the universe was created (for our salvation).

The 12th is something strange and very different in the different translations. All, however, speak of sharing a spoil. The spoil may refer to the Holy Spirit, which, could have to do with all the fallen (for whatever reason) were emptied of the Holy Spirit.

In 13, it speaks of those who rest on the walls of the sheepfold. These are those who died before the passion of Christ, who, although they were righteous, could not be filled with the Holy Spirit; Our nature was not yet redeemed. Then It speaks of the Dove, which I believe symbolizes the Virgin Mary and not the Holy Spirit (although it could also be), has sparkles of silver reflecting the sanctity of Mary Immaculate, gold of the divinity of Christ and green of human nature or "Terrestrial" of Him.

In 14 by means of the pigeon falls the snow in the dark mount. The snow speaks to us of dense Water of Life, the Mount of the high and the holiness, and the dark of the shadow or sin of human nature (Christ takes the form of sin). The dark mount is Jesus Christ.

The 15 and 16 may refer to the mistrust of the angels (Mount Bashan) by the sacrifice of Christ to save us (See Justice and redemption in Jesus Christ. The explanation of the parable of the prodigal son Luke 15: 12-32, p. 107).

The 17 and 18 speak of how after the passion of Jesus Christ, the nature of man can already receive God, or what is the same, God has a new abode in us. It speaks of all the righteous who after the passion ascended to heaven because the Holy Spirit was able to dwell in them, and He was able because all righteousness was fulfilled (God is who He is).

The rest of the verses speak of them, of all those who went up to the sanctuary, all who waited for different epochs of the history of Israel (and of mankind, even though they do not go forth here). It is worth mentioning that in 22 it says that He brings them up from the depths of the sea and also from Bashan. I understand that "the mountains of Bashan" is the high zone near God from where we fell to the lower part of Bashan.

There are differences between the translations I have seen but they generally coincide. I suppose that a Hebrew with the Torah in the hand, from the perspective here exposed would make us a more precise exegesis and also coincident with what was said. For example: where it says "the dark mountain", in some translations says "Zalmon". This has two meanings, 1st Ahohite warrior of David; 2nd Mountain (located in Bashan or near to Siquem). From the context it seems the 2nd. But since it represents Jesus could be the 1st (warrior of the line of David) or maybe both at the same time. The first speaks of the nature of man of Jesus and the 2nd, the mountain, of the Divine nature.

Well, now, I’ve included the family tree of Jesus, which to me always seemed boring (God forgive me) or, in any case, irrelevant. But like everything in the Bible, it has an explanation. Of course, it is written for men; now I see that it is written for the Jews back then and maybe today too, because for Catholics, St. Joseph is the putative father, since Mary is a Virgin. In this sense, I think this family tree, starting from Noah, is written for the understanding of man from the time that it was written, because you know my theory about Noah, the Tower of Babel, Adam and Eve: they are metaphors that God has used to show us our history of salvation (see 7.4 Logically... p.187). He has shown us an option to choose that deviated from mundane logic, so it was a way of choosing Him over the world. Today, these two forms of knowledge are united into one.

 

Gospel of Luke 3:23-38

When he began, Jesus was about thirty years old, being the son, as it was thought, of Joseph son of Heli, son of Matthat, son of Levi, son of Melchi, son of Jannai, son of Joseph, son of Mattathias, son of Amos, son of Nahum, son of Esli, son of Naggai, son of Maath, son of Mattathias, son of Semein, son of Josech, son of Joda, son of Joanan, son of Rhesa, son of Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel, son of Neri, son of Melchi, son of Addi, son of Cosam, son of Elmadam, son of Er, son of Jesus, son of Eliezer, son of Jorim, son of Matthat, son of Levi, son of Symeon, son of Judah, son of Joseph, son of Jonam, son of Eliakim, son of Melea, son of Menna, son of Mattatha, son of Nathan, son of David, son of Jesse, son of Obed, son of Boaz, son of Sala, son of Nahshon,son of Amminadab, son of Admin, son of Arni, son of Hezron, son of Perez, son of Judah, son of Jacob, son of Isaac, son of Abraham, son of Terah, son of Nahor, son of Serug, son of Reu, son of Peleg, son of Eber, son of Shelah,son of Cainan, son of Arphaxad, son of Shem, son of Noah, son of Lamech,son of Methuselah, son of Enoch, son of Jared, son of Mahalaleel, son of Cainan, son of Enos, son of Seth, son of Adam, son of God.

 

Now, these readings that speak about what the true nature of the Messiah should be. Note that in the Gospel it is written, as you have seen, the genealogical tree of Jesus descended from David by Joseph (putative father).

 

 


The last prefiguration of Jesus that I show is Noah (although it is the first one in order).

 

You know that Noah symbolizes a restart or new opportunity for us in Nature of Man, we see it in "see 7.4 Logically... p.187".

Noah is called by God "the only righteous man" and thanks to him "recreation" begins, he makes the ark in which he almost always only names, from the animals he brings, fowls or birds (= Adams), cattle (=Eves) [also clean animals], creeping (= demons) [also non-clean animals]. Symbolizing those who have fallen to the earth.

 

Gen 6:20 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.

Gén 7:8  Of clean animals, and of animals that are not clean, and of birds, and of everything that creeps on the ground,  9  two and two, male and female, went into the ark with Noah, as God had commanded Noah. =>[clean animals=animals, non-clean=Eves;?]

Gén 7:14  they and every beast according to its kind, and all the cattle according to their kinds, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth according to its kind, and every bird according to its kind, every bird of every sort.

 

It has already been said that, without Christ, the world would not have begun. Only He could redeem our nature (that is the crown of thorns or the antler that binds the ram in the bush in the prefiguration of Isaac). Thus, the ark symbolizes that world in which by divine justice we live with the demons (tempting us, reptiles glued to the world -they are part of the world-), Eves or cattle, always near the world and the Adams (birds) that can fly, and we can separate ourselves from the world, inscribed in the book of life. But the Ark also symbolizes our body, which frees us from falling into death together with the demons that hated God. The ark passes over the sea that symbolizes death.

 

Gen 7:13-16

That very day Noah and his sons Shem, Ham and Japheth boarded the ark, with Noah's wife and the three wives of his sons, and with them every species of wild animal, every species of cattle, every species of creeping things that creep along the ground, every species of bird, everything that flies, everything with wings.

One pair of all that was alive and had the breath of life boarded the ark with Noah, and those that went aboard were a male and female of all that was alive, as God had commanded him. Then Yahweh shut him in.

 

He ends by saying: Yahveh shut him in. For Christ also became man, gets into the Ark and thanks to his Passion our container is arranged. Our corporeal nature can retain Life, the Spirit does not run from us any more, the air does not go away and is filled by death (sea). He puts the "lid" or "door" on us.

With regard to the alliance that says that there will be no further flood, as I said, comes to mean that there will be no new "restarts", new opportunities, which is not really good for many.

As we see, in this part of Genesis it differentiates again from those groups or types of "angels" (men after). He no longer speaks of Eve, but of daughters of men (or Adams, sons of God), again designating the same thing, but now more clearly. This differentiation is repeated constantly in the Bible: Eve, Daughters of men, Cattle here, Canaan, Deaf (hear, do not listen), Rider on Green horse ...

 

·      Buddhism, Hinduism

 

 

Let’s look at Buddhism for what we outwardly know about it:

-          They respect life in all its forms.

-          They seek an inner state called Nirvana, which can be achieved even before death, that they call “no suffering and happiness”.

-          They believe in reincarnation.

 

In addition, on the Internet we can find something similar to this:                

In Buddha's teachings is the doctrine of the four truths: the existence of pain, the origin of pain, the cessation of pain and the eightfold path leading to the cessation of pain.

The perfect path is the majjhima patipada, which is the eightfold path that summarizes the exercise of Buddhist purification in eight factors: straight vision, straight thought, straight word, straight action, straight way of life, straight effort, straight consciousness, straight concentration.

These eight rectitudes unite ethical practice and meditative concentration in Buddha religiosity and comprise the five commandments or Buddhist pentalogue:

1. Do not lie, slander or speak offensively.

2. Do not destroy human or animal lives.

3. Do not steal.

4. Not to have dishonest dealings.

5. Do not use narcotics or intoxicating drinks, or trade in weapons or live off gambling.

These commandments must be accompanied by two of the great virtues of Buddhist spirituality: compassion (koruna) which avoids the suffering of others, and love (maitri) which seeks the good of others on an individual and social level.

 

Dukka is the continuous threat of existence (suffering, emptiness, insubstantiality). Its cause and origin is in tanha (desire) which leads to existence and which is linked to personal condition. Nirodha or the cessation of all desire is the end of suffering. If desire ceases, conditioned existence ceases and one begins to be happy (nibbuta).                  


I further understand that they recognize a devil or evil entity they call “Mara”. Seeing all this, let’s look for similarities.

Well, respect for life is still love. In a way, they renounce the world (though not to the point of mortification) to find, through meditation, concentration and those other standards or paths, that state of grace called Nirvana of no suffering and happiness. In addition they do everything, according to what I’ve read, also thinking of the happiness of others.

In the first lines of this text it seems to tell us that putting life in the world or in the world’s desires empties us and leads to death or suffering (dukkha). Something that we totally agree on and which conforms to Christianity. In addition, many of these “commandments” in the description have already been said in the Ten Commandments of God’s law brought by Moses. In the development (which I have not put here) of these “paths”, we also see other rules that are likewise already present in the commandments of God’s law.

Consider that it is the world itself which constitutes the test for us, and this test is only overcome by love. That is, with love of God and neighbor being the key to our soul, the world is the only place where that key can be forged, where that love can be given, because as much as I write here and talk about theories, they would only be doodles on paper of that key. Actions speak louder than words. Love is giving yourself, and giving something from you is to give up something of yours for another or for God. As it is our body that binds us to the world, only by renouncing the world do we achieve love, do we manage to open our souls to the Holy Spirit. This renouncing is not renouncing for its own sake or mortification to find personal salvation, but for the sake of others. However, a sacrifice for God’s sake or for the salvation of others is valid and gives Life to us, too.

Before, when we were with God the world wasn’t necessary because we were full of love. The shape of our being was in continuous contact with God, open to Him. It was when we wanted to separate from Him that the cage closed, leaving us empty, and it’s only with Jesus Christ that we release the lock that had been jammed and deformed. Through Christ we can now use our freedom to open the door to the Holy Spirit, to Life over death in the world and the death of the body, to Life above suffering; and freedom, once we are dead, away from God, is only given in the world, because the world is our second chance to recover God (as our sin was to separate freely from Him and die as His wishes, emptying ourselves of Him).

And since the renunciation of oneself or of the world is the key to love, and knowing that because of Jesus Christ all men are capable of receiving (not just contemplating) the Holy Spirit, someone who renounces the world like the Tibetan monks, for example, who follows those righteous paths and can spend hours in meditation seeking heaven on earth or Nirvana, wouldn’t they be able to receive the Spirit through God’s mercy, that state of grace they call Nirvana which coincidentally matches what we feel when the Holy Spirit is in us? According to them, Nirvana is that state of no suffering, of absolute happiness, that they get when they forget the misconception that one is formed by desire, need, death, etc. It therefore seems to be a renunciation of themselves. If this is accompanied by a life of righteous love, wouldn’t it be understandable that God in His mercy shows them the Holy Spirit, that full and happy life that makes us soar above our suffering? Like us, they believe that heaven, absolute happiness, can be enjoyed here on earth even in the midst of suffering. Could it be because, having been shown the Holy Spirit or Its effects, they have established It as their goal to achieve in life, even without knowing It as such?

Perhaps as a Christian, it shocks other Christians when I say things like that on this point or earlier ones, but I think God does speak to men according to their understanding. St. Augustine said that God is love, simple, definitive and absolute. We don’t need to know how a hang glider is made in order to fly, and conversely there are those who know a lot about the manufacture of such devices and have never flown. Similarly, as the Bible says, he who has no love is nothing. You can follow all the moralities of the world, but without love you are nothing. And you can be a non-Christian and reach God through love. In the New Testament (Corinthians), it’s very clear what love is:


1 Corinthians 13:1-8

Though I command languages both human and angelic -- if I speak without love, I am no more than a gong booming or a cymbal clashing.

And though I have the power of prophecy, to penetrate all mysteries and knowledge, and though I have all the faith necessary to move mountains -- if I am without love, I am nothing.

Though I should give away to the poor all that I possess, and even give up my body to be burned -- if I am without love, it will do me no good whatever.

Love is always patient and kind; love is never jealous; love is not boastful or conceited,

it is never rude and never seeks its own advantage, it does not take offence or store up grievances.

Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but finds its joy in the truth.

It is always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes.

Love never comes to an end.


As for Buddhism itself, there are many branches, but usually it seems they do not recognize an omnipotent God. Rather, Nirvana seems to be something they look for by themselves, from within. I think Siddhartha Gautama (the first “enlightened one” or first “Buddha”), because of everything said above, contemplated the Holy Spirit and from there established a way to reach It again (such is the happiness that is felt when contemplating that this feeling is independent of status). I think that, seeing the wonderful effects of the Holy Spirit, he established these effects as the goal to achieve, for which there was no need to ascend to the origin of the Spirit, no need to reach God the Father. I think it’s a philosophy and religion that seeks to achieve the benefits of the Holy Spirit without looking beyond It, which is why it focuses so much on seeking all sources of happiness for man, but studied or followed from the feeling of happiness itself. That is, instead of finding happiness as logical and normal consequence of finding God the Holy Spirit, the first Buddha or enlightened one traced several paths on which he walked before his contemplation (the contemplation that gave happiness). Given that, as I have said, ultimately it is love that brings us to the Spirit (provided there is the Gift) and this occurs in the world, it’s possible to reach contemplation by the mercy of God even without knowing Him, with good use of the world itself.

The fact that they seek all sources or paths to happiness means there are some circumstantial ones that have little to do with real happiness or eternal life, but rather with self-realization and feeling good. These circumstantial paths, however, are not as highly valued by Buddhism either.

Let’s look at the first Buddha, who brings those rules of love and respect. Is he not acting, in a way, as a Moses to that people? Then, let’s imagine that he actually was a “prophet” sent by God for their understanding. Isn’t it possible that this man also contained the Holy Spirit? I know that until the arrival of Jesus Christ, we could not retain It in us, but maybe he managed to contemplate It and perhaps he needed to meditate often to reach that contemplation again. Or perhaps, it turns out he did hold It, being one of the 24 prophets (elders) of God-> this will be explained the end, in the apocalypse which, as I see it, is the confirmation of what is discussed in this essay, what I have come to call the “dual” interpretation of the Bible.

As for reincarnation, maybe this enlightened man sensed life after death (in heaven or hell); perhaps he even sensed his existence as God’s wish before becoming a man, who knows? Unfortunately for us, if we die without the Spirit we will fall away from God; it would be infinitely better for us to be reincarnated as a cockroach than to fall into hell. The fact of the existence of that devil (Mara) that all nations recognize, including the first philosophers (Plato’s daimon), tells us of that hell. It is also true that there is an ascent or descent after our life. And in another state; the word,"Isa 41:14 Do not be afraid, Jacob's worm, people of Israel" compares us to worms when we were empty of God, before we could be filled with the Spirit again thanks to the passion of Christ; it is true that it does not speak of appearance but of courage, but God speaks to the peoples according to their understanding, perhaps it was so shown to this man. And if so, would God not have achieved his goal? He has spoken to them as to us that we can become "ascended" or "descended" in our nature according to our behavior in life according to those rules of love mentioned above. Isn't that the same thing (heaven and hell)? The fact that we were "angels", now men thanks to God and we can once again become like vile worms or go to heaven, speaks to us of reincarnation, if only for once: the opportunity that God, giving up his own living organ, has given us to try to recover, after we have freely chosen death in Eden. Why is that? Because he loves us with passion. That's how lucky we are.

I know that God loves all men, that with Jesus Christ comes the salvation of all men (or the possibility of being saved, we couldn’t before), and that’s why I know God has been giving paths to all nations to bring them to salvation.

In conclusion, it seems to be a philosophy focused on the effects, on happiness for happiness’ sake without looking beyond, without seeking God. Since many of these suggested paths have to do with love, moderation and renunciation of the world, it may ultimately constitute a path to reach God from a different understanding. That is, a path permitted by God to encourage the search or refinement of love. Finally, these nations will also find the Source, Jesus Christ, the direct path of Truth and Life. Thus it is written.



Hinduism is a somewhat more complex religion in which various gods are worshipped but a single underlying deity is contemplated, from what I understand. They are divided into castes and believe in reincarnation in a higher caste if they lived well in their previous life. They consider many animals to be sacred, I believe, especially the cow, so they are usually vegetarians. What I want to highlight in this religion is the code of conduct, which shares many “rules” with other religions, rules which ultimately entail renouncing oneself (for others) and the world.


  

 

 

They have yolks or restrictions:      (as I have seen on the internet)      


    Ahimsa: no violence or harm to any living being, verbally, mentally or physically; practice kindness and compassion for oneself and for others.

Satya: live in truth, be truthful at the level of thought, speech and communication.

Asteya: do not steal, do not take what belongs to others.

Brahmacarya: sexual moderation, energy conservation, abstinence, celibacy.

Kshama - Patience, be patient and tolerant with your neighbors.

Dhriti or perseverance, strength and firmness of character. You must try to be persistent and consistent.

Daya or compassion, moves and drives us to see those around us not as objects but as beings, souls.

Arjava or honesty, not deceiving others, be honest both with others and with ourselves. Renouncing deception completely.

Mitahara - moderation of appetite, it is important to eat to live and not live to eat.

Shauca - cleansing or external and internal purity, refers to care for the body and its surroundings.

 

Again, under different beliefs are hidden rules of love and renunciation of oneself to the world. Coincidence? That people from very different cultures come to share many of these “codes or commandments” of conduct as correct for a path to salvation, doesn’t that seem to indicate that these religions have a common Origin which adapts that path to each nation’s understanding?

 

·      Taoism

It begins as philosophy by metaphysical and physical observation of what surrounds us. It is also considered religion. Let us see some of its features:

 

Based on Wikipedia.org                                                                               ↓↓Internet↓↓

- It establishes three forces: a passive, yin (subtle, feminine, wet), another active force, yang (masculine, dry, concrete) and other conciliatory containing both of them, Tao.

- The Tao is something that cannot be achieved by any form of human thought. It is timeless.

According to Lao Tse:

When Lao Tse speaks about Tao, he tries to move it away from everything that might give an idea of something concrete. He prefers to frame it in a different plane from everything that belongs to the world. Because Tao is like the empty space so that everything occurs. «It existed before heaven and Earth», he says, and it is not possible to tell where it comes from. It is mother of creation and source of all things.

The Tao begat the unit. The unit gave rise to the two facets which gave being to the triad and triad produced ten thousand beings.

The sacred Triad formed by two complementary: Heaven and Earth. Above them is the Transcendent Unit, where everything created comes from; it is the metaphysical Zero or Non-Being or non-manifestation where all manifested comes from, and in the constant movement of the Universe reabsorbs individualities of the multiple states of Being and Non-Being (In the Non-Being are the beings not manifested to the manifestation).

There is a triad of second grade (Grand Triad) and is composed of two complementary being Heaven and Earth, and an intermediary that is Man. Total: (Heaven, Earth and Man). Thus designated it means that the man comes from Heaven (yang) and Earth (yin); the combination of both. The man then appears as the son of Heaven and Earth. Although as it seems that the order of the designation is important, it would be: Tien, Jen, Ti, that is: Heaven, Man, Earth, because man is the mediating between Heaven and Earth (he joins the heavenly essence with the earthly substance).

There is a lesson in Taoism: Dome (heaven) and the horizontal plane (earth) offer man the possibility to detach from his ego and destroy it not to keep his "I", and accommodate to his (being) "by Himself", which is the only way for that person to perform himself; the goal seems to be the Non-Being or non-manifested.

The Taoist metaphysics contains the same conception of the Hindu metaphysics; i.e., the way of perfection is to deliver oneself to the designs of the One or the Whole, away from the sensual desires of everyday life; while odd numbers are the celestial for Taoism, the 1 corresponds to the Tao, to the Unity and the Creative Unity, thus the first named is the 2, Yin and then 3, Yang.

Other Features.

• It recommends the harmony of man with the Tao, the ethereal and dialectical course of events.

• It repudiates the war, resignation, the greed, the prejudices, conventions and taboos, inequality, the submission, the dogmatic submission to absolutist regulations or prejudiced preconceptions (filial loyalty, nationalism, legalism, submission to the cult, etc.).

• Precepts: He has no dogma to which the faithful must be limited.

• Virtues: Piety, goodness, magnanimity, self-denial, self-sacrifice, planting trees (deliver something to the nature or other human), make paths (in the same modes as the trees), to be introspective, to be analytical, contemplative and meditative, to promote honesty and fairness, to teach the ignorant.           ↑↑Internet↑↑

Let us see now what we have in common:

Starting at the end, and I think most importantly, do not virtues coincide with our popular virtues? Piety, generosity, kindness, sacrifice, humility... As for something that may shock us, it repudiates submission to the cult, legalism, filial loyalty... Well, and what do Gospels say concerning the love? What have I mentioned a few times in the essay (so that you will already be tired of listening it)? Without love we are not anything, it does not matter if you are the best Christian and comply with all the standards, because you are nothing without love. What does it mean to love the enemy? It does not mean hating the friend, but love everybody. I think that in saying "to reproach" the filial loyalty what he says is that goodness should be applied to everyone, not just with your brother (that is what I think, since you are looking for that mercy, generosity, kindness...). And do not we say that in the end the love is the most important thing, not the moralisms (submission to the cult)? "Submission" to the cult is important for me because it helps me in the search of God, the Holy Spirit and gives me freedom, But I can understand what Taoism refers to.

There are other things that are like: destroying his ego not to keep his "I", and accommodate his (being) "by Himself". Is not love donating? To sacrifice yourself for others. And as we have said, how does the Holy Spirit come to us? Through the love (although it is a gift) That "Himself" sounds to me like the inner life that only the Holy Spirit gives you, which leads me to the beginning:

There is a transcendent unity from which all creation comes; for me it speaks of God. It seems to speak of an infinite creative entity (from where everything comes out, or what everything contains) and inconceivable as it has been related here (God the Father), of some "unmanifest" for us or "unmanifest part", which belongs to the heavenly world, angels and others and tao itself, invisible to us; and others manifested that we would be men.

We know that there are celestial creatures that have not manifested to us "Not-being" and there is a celestial part in us that was and is no longer (because we lost the Holy Spirit) but that can return to us, which speaks about the same.

It is said that the man comes from heaven and earth. Okay, that's what I say, we descended from heaven and changed nature (with body; earth) thanks to God, who holds us waiting to fill us with life. Then the idea is to fill us again with the "celestial".

Nature of Man is, according to what is said in this essay, the body or clamping part and our person or empty soul, our whole being or "Himself" is only in balance with the Holy Spirit (I say balance because we will not stop being men If not the body we would spare).

They say, I think that yin and yang complement each other, like the sides of a mountain according to the translation (on one side is sunny and on the other there is dark, forming unit, Tao). In man nature, for us, there is a "weak" part and a "strong" part, our body which in itself is a consequence of sin (whose source is unlove and selfishness); our soul is what comes from heaven. The light of the sun would then be the Holy Spirit, so that without Him we are cold. And the reality is that in the beginning we were all just under the sun, so that it illuminated all of us. In our freedom some of us tried to move the mountain, we separated and one half was bathed by the sun (angels) and in the other our shadow appeared.

I believe that the conclusions reached by Taoism are taken from the observation of our world, that is, from the reality in which we live. It is true that they do not have the same concept of good and bad that we do; or, rather, they do not consider the yin bad and the other good. They don't seem to be looking for one thing over the other but for balance or for Tao itself. Thus, from our reality, observing the yin and yang, we can verify the existence of these in what surrounds us or those around us, but we can not go back to an origin, if not with the mind. That is to say, Taoism knows that the Yin is there and where it came from, from the Tao that contains it, but one does not ask what the Yin was before, if it was always Yin or were we all a unity together with Tao, which is what the one who professes Taoism really wants to reach: to become one with Tao, to become one with God, like all of us. 

Tao y CristianismoFrom my ignorance about this religion and what is now said I can see in its anagram the following also equating us (other things are seen in nature, but this is what interests me most now).

 The yang or white zone and the yin or black zone in the drawing not only complement each other, but are in motion, with an opposite circle of color in each zone that seems to pull a part, which I would like to say:

That the white is the celestial creatures, that is, those desires that were not emptied of the Spirit. But in the beginning we were in heaven, and there was one, Lucifer (the black dot), which caused the fall or movement of the angels Eve, the Adam and the serpent or demons - the so called fallen angels. In the symbol indicates also that movement from white to black, staging this. Let us say then that the white is the Holy Spirit and everyone who contains it.

Well, black is now us on earth (empty of the Spirit), and Jesus Christ that white point that moves us back to heaven (the whole man nature, for He makes capable of receiving back the Spirit to those who love, have mercy, are humble ...); He, among us, has man nature, but has the Holy Spirit in its maximum density, absolute, because it also has divine nature.

This is something that is given today, the passage from one thing to another, and perhaps this symbolizes the anagram; it may not have been done with what happened in Heaven in mind, but it shapes it perfectly, because it is the battle that we have since fought every day here on earth.

This movement between yin and yang is seen even more clearly or in a more potentiated way since we men can harbor the Holy Spirit in us, from the Passion. For what was once determined by justice today shines splendidly in us with the white of the Holy Spirit. Thus, the yang, are the "persons, souls or liberties" that contain the Holy Spirit (heavenly beings, and just; already, after Christ also the earthly ones that have achieved it, through love, humility, donation -Not Being), and the yin the empty "persons, souls or liberties" that could contain it (I speak of the living). God also contains these, for He probes even the darkness.

Regarding the movement, as I said, there was not only a movement in the rebellion from heaven to the black void of the Holy Spirit. There is a continual movement of the Holy Spirit in our persons, for He flees from us when we sin, though He mysteriously returns to us when we are in God's grace if there is a gift.

Well, going back to the similarities, we cannot equate the Tao and its two facets, exactly with the Most Holy Trinity, although two Persons of God are clearly distinguished. The Tao or God the Father, from which everything has come and the Holy Spirit itself which is the white part, the black being the void of the Holy Spirit. Coincidentally (although nothing is finally casual), the white dot of the anagram represents the third person of God, although in and between man nature.

As I said, I recognize that I am a complete ignorant of this religion, which, moreover, had, and has, I suppose, many studious with much brains that surpass me greatly. Much less do I intend to correct the work of these, only to highlight the coincidences among us. And not to designate them as casual, but as different perspectives of the same thing. In this sense, I would like to look now at the Ying, which is described as a passive, subtle, humid, feminine part. As for 'passive', we see that one who does not have the Holy Spirit within him, lives empty, like a walking dead man; he moves with the world, but in a really passive way, no matter how many banalities with which he tries to fill his time. The opposite of living actively in the happiness of the Holy Spirit. Nevertheless, it seems to me that these qualifiers are all in the same line that I will try to explain now:

I have described how in the Bible, the Eve designates those who were deceived by the devil, who then convinced the Adam. For the Adam in the world are those who are inscribed in the book of life, who have ears for God; and the Eve, who have ears only for the world and its idols, in righteousness to what happened in heaven. In the Bible, moreover, in various places calls these deaf in feminine, as opposed to those who see God: for example 'daughters of men' versus 'sons of God'. Here again we see another similarity. It does not mean that women are this way, it means that Eve convinces with arguments, or sells the idea (subtle, feminine, ying) to Adam who finally makes the decision (active, concrete); it means that someone weak who fights with someone stronger, will think and plot stratagems to defeat a stronger one if they are confronted. He is not going to do it directly; this can also happen between two men of very different forces. Women, generally weaker bodily than men, will rarely seek a physical confrontation with another man; they will think of other ways of doing so if the case arises. The devil, deeply dark, tempts our ears with deception, but finally it is we who actively make the decision; although this is not because he is weak, but because he is obliged to respect our freedom and our being while we are in our body; otherwise, he would crush us because he hates us. This, the demon, is the black dot that stands out among the white, that made us fall from heaven, but also provokes here the loss of the Holy Spirit, pushing with his temptations (although it is finally our decision). This is the feminine Ying, which subtly attracts the active yang that takes the step. That is why they are in constant motion. It is not just a movement of translation, it is a movement of 'color' by conversion (although ultimately it is the Holy Spirit who moves). When the 'yang' produces the 'conversion' of someone empty (that the movement is given in both directions), it does so by showing their example of life, so that, if an evil one preaches to us words of love and mercy, we will rarely believe him; there must be some agreement; he must live actively what he preaches. Not so the other way around, because emptiness seduces us with the things of the world, not with the interior life, not with himself. I know that they also apply it to nature, in this sense I would recommend that you read the conclusion, in which we see examples in which God shows himself in nature to speak to us of those seven religions directed by Him.

 Some say that the Most Holy Trinity, one God and three persons, has been "copied" by Christians from Taoism, which predates Jesus Christ (6th century B.C.). We have seen that it is not exactly the same thing, but above all, it has become very clear in the prefiguration of the Most Holy Trinity of Isaiah and others from the Old Testament, thousands of years before Taoism that this does not fit. But one might ask the opposite: Is it not that God somehow guides his envoys in the same direction?

In short, again through the renunciation of the world they seek as all seek the Inner Life or the "Self" or the Holy Spirit, I would say. It gives "norms" that are not such because they seem to flee from moralisms, but virtues (piety, magnanimity...) that coincide with ours, those of Muslims, Hindus... Why? Because they come from the same place: from God. Let us remember: to exercise Love is what saves. On the other hand, if there is a virtue, there is a counter-virtue or sin, in the face of love, hatred or even selfishness... I say this because of moralisms, which, even if they flee from the norms, often everything is exposed as a counterposition of extremes, which in itself determine the range by which to measure.

And although it is good to become like God in mercy, piety, magnanimity (which, I believe, is His objective in bringing us these ways of salvation to men), and above all to feel the Holy Spirit within you, it is phenomenal to know that you are loved by Him in the way He does, infinitely! If God has given them this path, it will be good for them to follow it, but always guided by mercy and aware of the love He has for us. He wants to dwell in us, make us white and give us the sun so that we may live actively in happiness. He wants to be precisely in us so that there will be no shadows. So it was in the beginning before the betrayal, before the yin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

·      And here we all are: Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Christians…

 

 

 

As I said, we know that God Loves all men, even those who deny Him; if not, we wouldn’t be here (sin).

We know we can receive life from Him, His Spirit. I can attest to this myself and I have also seen Muslims with Life inside, and Protestants. And I would suppose Jews, too (I don’t know any).

I can confirm that the theory presented in this essay which talks about our origin in heaven is expressed in the Bible, especially at the beginning of the Apocalypse which I believe is key to interpreting the rest of the holy book. This is explained at the end, in section 7. It also speaks of the 7 churches, which bind us all together beautifully in our origin to separate us for our own good until today, because today the confusion is destroyed, we see the reason for everything and the reason comes from what each one of us was in heaven.

If a Muslim reads this, I understand that it may be difficult or shocking. So, replace Son of God with “God’s wish who did not separate from Him, thus being the one in the other and vice versa.” Which in reality is the Son, but it may be easier this way.

Religions such as Islam, Judaism and Buddhism are very close to each other in that they have rules that speak of justice (as long as they aren’t misunderstood) in the “language” of that nation. They are a preparation or approach for different understandings, but in all of them love is salvation.

In any case, I think the worst thing today is what surrounds us most: the conscious ignorance of God. The world is full of pagans who have the option to approach God (Allah, Yahweh, the name He has taught us), but they don’t because they don’t believe, because they aren’t afraid of God (or His absence) or simply because they prefer the idols of the world, foolishly trying to fill themselves with them in vain. I think these are the Eves that we are called to save today, all who do not hear, in all religions.

Today, what all men have in common (in any religion) is that Jesus Christ gives us all the opportunity to be saved.

 

The believers in God (...), already here, in the daily struggle, we have the war won, because the best hope for the atheists, is that there is nothing after death, and life is not such without hope, it is just a wandering waiting for death. They believe from us that, by seeking that hope, we are able to believe in anything, and they ignore that they are the fools, and fools for lack of capacity, for, even if they wanted to, they could not believe by listening to any of God's voices. So has the Lord determined in righteousness what happened in Heaven. By them, evas, many fell. Only because of the Adam will they be able to believe here. However, this is coming to an end. Thus it is written and not only for Christians, we will all unite in the knowledge of God.


 

 

 

 

LOVE, THE KEY

5- The Cross

The cross is incomprehensible to pagans and there are still many Christians who, unfortunately, don’t understand its meaning. Why does God the Son teach us the way of the Cross? Why does the Almighty Lion sacrifice himself, making himself weak as a lamb? It is such a wonderful mystery for man which can be addressed in just one way. So, before talking about the “Christian” sense, its real sense, let’s talk about the logic of the cross to someone on the outside. Take a scene that we might see in the world, which we will use later:


A mother duck has her newborn ducklings in a tree, but she must take them to the lake where they will eat and live. She knows that the ducklings must jump, but they won’t; they stay in the nest even though they can’t live there. The mother duck will teach them by making the first jump. The most experienced will follow and finally the most cowardly. If any of them stay, they will die.

What is happening to those who stay behind? They are afraid to jump and die. And the fear of death makes them slaves to the tree branch where they will surely find death. They will never live in the water.


Saint Paul says:


Hebrews 2:14-18

Since all the children share the same human nature, he too shared equally in it, so that by his death he could set aside him who held the power of death, namely the devil,

and set free all those who had been held in slavery all their lives by the fear of death.

For it was not the angels that he took to himself; he took to himself the line of Abraham.

It was essential that he should in this way be made completely like his brothers so that he could become a compassionate and trustworthy high priest for their relationship to God, able to expiate the sins of the people.

For the suffering he himself passed through while being put to the test enables him to help others when they are being put to the test.


In the world, we are given the opportunity to Live by choosing God and renouncing the devil. And the world from a crude perspective is the body’s needs, it’s “getting” for oneself. And this is the test where the choice is given, that is, all the needs of the world are weapons of the devil to turn us away from God, who is exactly the opposite: giving to others, love, devotion. Simple but true, selflessness vs. selfishness, give vs. take, love vs. hate, this is the battle that saves us from death. It’s what so many cultures have written about, studied and built their theologies in search of God: good versus evil. The battle of life or death.

But what happens? The world is the devil’s best weapon because of its own crudeness. And being used to living in the world, we no longer know how to live for heaven, so we live needing and taking in fear of death, and in doing so, all we achieve is to stay on the tree branch where we will surely find death. Not only that, but while we struggle for the life of the body on the branch (in the world), we can’t even enjoy the good life in water (happiness).

And what is this death that we are afraid of? Not just starvation that makes us hoard and be selfish, but death of our being. By losing the spirit of God and falling, we lost what made us really Be. Being (and being happy) in our own presence (God within us). We were empty. And without God in the world, for fear of that emptiness, of that death, of not Being, we seek to “be” in another person or stimulus. We want to be for our wife or for our children, know that we are loved by them (and when they are missing or betray us our life ends as well, and some are able to do horrendous things). Others may deceive themselves even further and put their being in the things and idols of the world. In prestige, in work...

St. Paul says that fear of death makes us slaves of sin, and it’s true, because every threat of death in the world (either of the body or of being for others) leads us to the needs of the world itself. And he who is afraid of the world will seek things from that same world. And as we said, the world for man represents the survival of self (followed by that of their community). These false “needs” are what the devil uses to turn us away from God (good against evil, selflessness against selfishness). We can find examples that demonstrate this:

In a first and more basic state.

He who steals or kills to eat, to have a home (or just a place to take shelter) does this because he is afraid to die. If he didn’t have that fear, if he knew that after his death he could find salvation and continue to live, he wouldn’t do this.


In a second, less physical state.

If someone is lying, talking about himself to others to look better, it’s because he’s afraid of not “being” for them. He wants to be for others. We can come up with many examples in this line of sins and faults, like (being a slave of) emotions, or even envy (not for highlighting one’s being, but for wanting to sink another’s being so it doesn’t overshadow our own), slander, the fifth commandment (thou shalt not kill; for Christians criticizing and judging is to kill one’s being in the mind of another).


It is also the fear of death which brings us to sin when we defend ourselves from evil, which is why Christians must not retaliate.

If they criticize me behind my back, I should forgive them because I am not afraid to die, and not afraid to die for others. God is enough for me; He gives me life and God + 1 is an army.

If they hit me or hurt me, I should forgive them because I am not afraid to die. For a true believer, death is the day we are born.


But what happens when we “Christians” defend ourselves? The one who said something that hurt us so much that our heart races, if we return fire with an expletive, our fear of death of being has made us sin. That is, we have sinned against the other who attacked us (insulted, slapped or whatever) because we thought that insult would kill us (our pride believes this), that if we are ridiculed in front of others we will stop being (no longer have the position we had before with our friends, in the world). That’s when their sin spreads to us (we make it ours) like a burning arrow that lands in a fortress and sets it ablaze. This is why humility and not fighting against evil are so important. What Christ said applies here: turn the other cheek when we are slapped. That’s what we are called to do and not just in a manner of speaking. Difficult? Impossible if we don’t have the Holy Spirit, that supernatural happiness that makes you soar above suffering as if you didn’t have a care in the world.

In general, if we weren’t afraid to die, we wouldn’t sin unless we had evil within. At least the devil wouldn’t have weapons with which to tempt us, to attack us.

But the reality is that we’re fooling ourselves, we surround our nest more beautiful branches, we put our hope in them and live badly (waiting for death) for fear of that jump, for fear of death itself. And our mother duck comes and teaches us how to get to the water. She has made it very clear and has suffered the worst blows (being larger and heavier). She disappeared from our gaze for a moment and then we saw her again, grazing heartily on the ground, but even though we saw her alive after that leap of death, we don’t listen and she goes to the water with the other ducklings that followed her. This happens to us because after death is eternal life, but before death we can also enjoy that eternal life (the Holy Spirit, true Life, Happiness, God within), even living in this body.

Thus Christ taught us that life is found in the death of oneself for the sake of others. Spending our time to help others, giving to the poor... It really is a leap of Faith to lose that fear of death, but when you achieve it, you get to the water, or rather the Living Water comes to you and you can really live, fully and happily. It seems like a paradox that happiness is found dying for others’ happiness, but the truth is that man is made to love because he comes from God, and since God is love, if we don’t love we lose our reason for being, our own being.

Imagine you are on a high cliff next to your child, and there are two new small, compact flying machines there. Suddenly, your child jumps and you have time to throw him one of those flying machines, turned off. He sees that he shouldn’t have jumped, and he struggles to get on the machine, but he doesn’t know how to drive it. You shout and tell him what to do, but he doesn’t understand. He’s half listening and manages to start the engines, but he doesn’t know how to fly, he doesn’t know to drive the machine. What would you do?

Obviously, you would get on the other machine, fly to his side, and show him how to operate it. Showing him your own controls, your own body and speaking closer this time so he’ll understand you.

Well, that is what God has done. We were with Him and freely fell (we thought, out of pride, we could live without God and we disobeyed, we denied Him and emptied ourselves) but He loves us so much that He gives us a body to stop falling (we freely fill ourselves with Him again, with obedience, humility, love), He sends us prophets (shouts) to help our body back up but we don’t understand very well. We get in position and grab the controls, but we’re missing the most important: starting the engines and flying (love, even above oneself). And so, Christ comes down in a body (the other machine in the story) and gives us the instructions (the Word) and teaches us with his body, signs and signals (the Cross) that the path to heaven is death in the world. With the cross, he teaches us that dying for another is what gives you life. He sacrifices himself for all of us to show us the way. Like the mother duck making the first jump who suffers the worst blows because she weighs more than the ducklings, Christ did not suffer just any death, but the cross. As you would have done with your child in the case of the flying machine: you get on the machine. Christ becomes man. You speak as you can and teach him how to fly. Christ brings us the Word of God and shows us the way up again. The difference is that perhaps you wouldn’t have suffered martyrdom for your son or your brother, or maybe you would, we don’t know.


Christ, after his passion and resurrection, still being the unchanged Essence of God (= infinite Love), starts our machine’s engine (of all men). We are now able to fly, plus Christ teaches us that renouncing the world and its prince for love of others is what saves us. This is outrageous to the pagans. Sacrifice yourself for someone you might not even know? Come on! However, it is what we are called to do, and interestingly, by doing it you not only win inner life, but the Lord makes your cross lighter. It seems as if God wanted to reward the steps we take in the right direction by giving us a little Holy Spirit, Life. I know it’s a Gift and it doesn’t depend on our effort, but I have a feeling that’s what happens, because I see it in my own life. Maybe I’m like a donkey that you have to put a carrot in front of to get him to walk, who knows?

I think that’s also why celibacy is so important among priests. Although there is a lot of talk about those who break it, I think they are just a few bad apples in a huge orchard, because the world takes it upon themselves to rant about each case and there are few cases compared to the number of priests. Remember that even an angel fell into hell. We are all men and we can all fall. But as I was saying, I think celibacy is very important because the Lord rewards with Spirit, with Living Water, those works of Faith done in His name, such as remaining chaste, for example, which are above all a renunciation of the world for love of God.


In short, loving to the extreme is shutting up when you’re right, letting them hit you even though you could defend yourself; in other words, not fighting against evil. It’s being humble and letting someone else get the credit. For that’s what Jesus Christ did to teach us the way: being an invincible Lion, he became a lamb to die on the cross. The cross is made glorious and resurrection is found, not death (here in the world, too), he returns, soaring up to his father. God has mercy on us. He loves us even though we do not deserve it; that is what we are called to do with others.

A cross could also be a disease or anything in general that would take from your life, but it would only be a cross if you accept it for the love of God; that is, you offer it to the Lord accepting His will. Because in the cross there must always be love; if not, it would be suffering but not a glorious cross. As an example, there is a lot of good lost in the diseases that are suffered without accepting them for the love of God (that pain is not offered for the souls in purgatory, for example). The truth is that, like our teacher, we are called to bear the cross (He says so: take up your cross and follow me). If we don’t have a cross, something is wrong; we aren’t very Christian.

Well, this is reason enough why the cross is given, but I insist that in Christ our sins are forgiven and our mold is repaired in this new creation, capable of receiving the Spirit again because of his passion. It seems that Christ, after testing in himself the creation of God’s “wish” – angels –, he tests in himself the creation of man to be able to receive the Spirit we lost. In this sense, Christ’s cross would be the ultimate test of the pure wish of God’s love in the nature of man in the face of the world and its prince, making that nature capable. But it is really a test of the person in that nature. It’s like starting over, as if God had begun again. If the person of Jesus pleased Him by leaving His essence unchanged after being created, and thanks to that He created the others (angels, archangels), now it is once again the person of Jesus Christ in this new nature (mediocre compared to what we were) that must please God by keeping His essence unchanged as pure love while he passes the test of the world (also tempted). Hence the extreme act of love of the Passion.


And it is an extreme test of love because he freely chose to do it (the power to avoid the cross was a great temptation) for the love of God and us, and also because of the immense cruelty of his martyrdom. I highly recommend reading the book “La Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ” by Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, a woman who experienced bilocations and who was shown visions of the life and passion of Jesus and the Virgin. It isn’t recognized by the Vatican but I certainly think it’s a good way to approach Jesus Christ the man (2nd person).

Returning to the cross, consider that when God became man and died voluntarily for love in a horrible death, He teaches us the cure to true death, sin, since it is the fear of death that causes us to sin. As we said, sin is being emptied of the Spirit, emptied of God, since sin is reached by a lack of love or even hate, and emptying oneself of God is to truly die. It is to stop being and start searching in vain for our being in the things of the world. We try to fill ourselves with something; upon achieving this, we see that we aren’t satisfied and we seek something else to start again, to pursue happiness again, to “Be” again as we were when we had God in us.

 

 

 

Christ is for us the key to heaven and earth

 

To better understand this fear of death, imagine this saying in the world: “He who needs nothing is happy.” If you don’t need recognition from others or big things in the world, then you actually don’t have that fear of the world and perhaps you wouldn’t even need to renounce the world, because you don’t give it much importance anyway. This allows you to look beyond yourself and see others. I think someone like that, even outside the Church, would be closer to God than many of us who call ourselves Christians.


Interestingly, if we eliminate any of the three “evil” factors that are stumbling blocks in our test, the remaining two are also greatly diminished.


{If world = 0 => sin = 0 => death = 0} => Eternal Life (Gift) + Happiness


Turning our back on our needs (almost all artificially created) without putting life in the world, sin would surely be diminished.

If we remove sin, we remove death (and fear of it), and if we remove the fear of death (which ultimately comes from the world), we remove sin.


For those who aren’t able to understand the cross in this depth, Christ is tortured, dies and is tested in suffering beyond those who are tested in the world (although in reality it is a test of love). He shares and becomes one with us in that pain. Because God really loves us; He’s not a distant god that has nothing to do with us. We were wished (i.e. created) as His children and can now reconnect with Him through Jesus Christ, who comes down to us and remains in Him to make us a “bridge” to go back, to make “man” love in his extreme test of love and to allow us to be God’s wish of love again. So he comes to save what was lost. Moreover, if Jesus had been rich, without cross or suffering and had died of old age and then been resurrected, his words would not have been observed in the same way by those suffering in the world, and by definition a Christian is one who chooses God above the world, above worldly pleasures; in a way, for the pagans, a Christian is a poor wretch being that their beliefs restrict or take away those pleasures of life (life in lowercase). That is, for them, any true Christian lives a life of chosen “suffering”. Pagans cannot recognize for themselves that God gives true Life and true happiness. Thus, God becomes man with all its consequences, suffers like us (and more) and even when tested on the cross, he does it without the Spirit (My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?) to suffer as a man (as the worst of all men, the convicted) and all to teach us and redeem our sins out of love.


To fully grasp the meaning of redemption in sacrificing oneself for another, consider this scene: A child has struck another very hard and hurt him a lot. Hearing his cries, you, their father, are going to punish the offender, but the victim says to you, “It’s okay Dad. Don’t punish him.” And how are you going to do it if he has forgiven him?


I think that in this world, the sacrifice of the Adams can save the Eves. That is the example given by Christ. He, pure, (neither Adam nor Eve in sin), only sharing with us the creation of his person, suffers the worst tortures and asks forgiveness for us. And having asked forgiveness for the worst, what else is left? And in doing so as a man, he verifies that the nature of man can hold the person of God, the freedom which can contain and keep the pure Spirit of God, Infinite Love. He gives us the diploma, he “normalizes” us, validates us.


The cross ultimately is our salvation and not in and of itself, but because of how Jesus lived it and how we live it. Can you imagine what would have happened if Christ in his passion had threatened his torturers? If he had said, “Just wait ‘til my Father gets you!” Then the cross would have lost its value since un-love would have won and Christ would have ceased to contain the pure essence of God, Love; consequently, he would have ceased to be God and man would not be a valid structure to contain God. It’s the person holding the infinite Love who passes the test while being tortured, and he asks forgiveness for his torturers, for us, to the very end. Not to mention all the other tortures that Christ suffered, others who didn’t choose their destiny, or die loving their tormentors, and who had original sin, were crucified too. But it is the person of Christ, the person of God that remains in God, proving that the created person, Christ, who as God’s wish retains the same essence of God and is God, now in the nature of man can also maintain and retain the intact essence of God, infinite Love. And in that act, he makes the nature of man a potential container of God.

We are called to the same, for we all will have suffering and crosses, but accepting the cross is when we glorify that cross, when we make it valid for our salvation, when we become one with Christ. If not, it would just be more suffering.



 

Finally , a symbol. This Judeo-Arabic Cross symbolizes Christ come down from heaven introduced in the star of Israel. He enters the world, in which the cross or the renouncing of the world for the love of God and neighbor sustains salvation, sustains all paths and all who are called to listen. In turn, the crescent mood symbolizes Jesus (coming on the star) banishing death by the suffering of the world (the cross is not seen in the moon). In addition it symbolizes that for the Arabs, Christ is not born of man; he comes from heaven and did not die on the cross, because really the essence of Jesus is still the original essence of God, and it doesn’t die in what it Is. After passing through the world and the world’s cross, he is still able to keep the infinite Love; he stands up to the temptations of the world and his freedom in the created person (and as a man) passes the test for us all, validating us again as God’s wishes, but this time as men.

 

 

6- Justice and Redemption in Jesus Christ

 

Jesus Christ becomes a man to save us in his sacrifice, that of the Father and of the Spirit Itself. Fine, we know this, but let’s delve a little deeper.

Jesus comes from the Father as His greatest free and independent wish, and because he does not separate from Him, he keeps being Him... We are made as tiny wishes of God because His Son (the truth that stays in Him) pleases Him with what he Is, but we separated, etc.

Jesus Christ, then, is God because he didn’t separate from Him in his freedom, but in heaven he also has the nature of “wish” that has made him free from the Father. In a way, this distinguishes him as another person, because if not we would be talking about the same person and one God (this nature of wish would sound like heresy if we didn’t know that, being God, he took on the nature of man in the world). Well then, being that we had the nature of wish, when we were wishes, we were closer to him (although he is still God) than to God the Father. Let’s say that Jesus Christ in the nature of wish or person was like our older brother, the beloved of the Father.

Let’s think, just as a hypothesis, that he as the first wish feels “responsible” for those that have been made because of him (since he pleased God the Father), and that he also feels close to us not just in the essence we shared (the Spirit, even in infinitesimal amounts), but in our nature as wishes. It’s clear that God the Father, Son and Spirit love us intensely, but we also shared a nature with the “person” of Jesus Christ (in heaven as a wish, like us).

Suppose the betrayal happens and we empty ourselves of the essence of God. We stop being and all that’s left lying on the “floor” and about to fall into the abyss with Lucifer, is our mold (I repeat again...) shaped by decisions that in our freedom gave shape to the essence of God; that is, our soul (shape or “person”). We lose everything we had from God and we are left with the exterior, the wish nature (now empty) which we shared with Jesus (though he is full and his “mold” has not changed the shape of God and he remains God). For God, in our new reality as treacherous, broken and empty wishes, we are now unworthy to Be again, to once again maintain the Essence of God, because any wish of God (alive) must be free. It is not God’s wish to have slaves; now dead, we might love Him out of fear and then we would not be God’s wishes.

Suppose that the person of Jesus Christ (wish) takes pity on us and offers to save us, for which he is willing to follow us wherever we fall, share our suffering, and be tested in our new mediocre nature under the worst conditions, and even be tested under the worst temptations by the one who broke our condition as wishes of God: the devil. In doing this, Jesus Christ, having already dignified and validated the nature of “wish” by pleasing God the Father, dignifies and validates the nature of man to again receive the Holy Spirit, the Essence of God.

Does this mean that the sacrifice is only made by the person of Jesus Christ? No. It is also the sacrifice of God the Father, God the Son and the Holy Spirit. God the Father allows the offering of His Son, but God the Son as a person is the one who makes the offering and takes the first step.

Jesus Christ is God in essence, like the Father and the Spirit, and he is free and independent because of his person. And Jesus Christ (God and person) becomes a man to test the new nature of man, knowing that if he yields to the tribulations of the world or its prince he would cease to be the exact wish of God; his person would have freely decided to separate from God, which would make him stop being God. Then, as I said at the beginning, the sacrifice is given by God the Father and Spirit, who can lose God the Son, and by the Son who offers himself and who can lose the nature of God, besides offering his body in the nature of man.

Hence the immense value of the passion. The love that we owe to our savior Jesus Christ is all we can offer him. So Jesus’ person is up there showing God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit (to GOD in ESSENCE) his wounds when we sin to say that he carries those sins, that He not take away our possibility of once more receiving the Holy Spirit, of receiving God in us. That the sin, which is actually another betrayal of God (like original sin), does not invalidate us again from receiving Him (not personally, nor as the man structure - Adam and Eve were two “humans”-), because he is the proof that “man” is worthy to receive God under the worst conditions. And being enabled as men, our freedom can accept God or reject Him again; as always, we are free, but now we can save ourselves thanks to Jesus Christ and the mercy of God the Father, Son and Spirit.

    

And did He really need to send His son? Yes, to validate our new Nature. God is the one who Is, so by definition He is True, and He is also Just. If He weren’t Just, given that He loves us so much, He could have turned us into “angels” again and perhaps we would be the same as before. But He is, and there are some who hated God and weren’t tethered to the nature of man in order to be able to exercise their freedom again. Imagine that you have three children: one has tried to kill you with a knife, another agreed with the first and followed him stealthily while he tried to kill you, but dared not wield a weapon himself. And there is a third child who loves the second and doesn’t want to do it, but stays in another room without warning you. Well, these children represent, in order:

The devil or demons (fallen angels), the Eves and finally the Adams.

The justice they have received is this:

The devil/demons are not made into men to exercise their freedom and now they can only hate.

The Eves now only have ears in the world for the devil and for the Adams, but not for the Word of God.

The Adams, like the others, were emptied of God, but they are still written in the Book of Life (they have ears for God).

But God loves us so much that He is willing to accept what we have become (soul + supportive cage), provided that “we” or the nature of man, are able to Love and to contain Infinite Love, God. For which He sends His Son, the epitome of Justice, and through him (who takes on our sinful nature, without being a sinner) we become able to do it. Just like in medieval times, in a trial, when a knight would present himself to fight for the innocence of the defendant.

That’s why the devil is always (or will be, before being eliminated) accusing us like a prosecutor; because of God’s Justice. “You didn’t give me a chance and look at what this guy’s doing...” Anyone would send him to hell, but God is the one who Is. He can’t not be Just. He can’t “not Be”. And it would be unjust to undo the Adams’ sentence without undoing the demons’ sentence as well. But in Christ, nothing is undone or stepped back; everything is made new. It would also be unjust for the angels if we had stayed with them in the same circumstances (something which could not have been) when they fought like heroes and won. In Christ, heaven is also reconciled with earth.

And this makes me think that the devil, apart from everything else, is part of the justice (judgment) that is given to us: important for our salvation.

The Logic of God is Love

 The Justice of God is Love

As an example to understand this justice, take for instance:

You have three children who need kidneys, and you have a shop full of your kidneys (if only it were that easy). And you only give a kidney to the one you like best. Wouldn’t that be a gross injustice?

But what if: There is no such store, because such a thing doesn’t exist. You must give your own kidney. Choosing one of the three children would be very hard, but it wouldn’t be unjust.

God wants to save us, but He cannot commit an injustice and do it by force, so it is He Himself who validates the “man” nature through His Son, and He has only one with His own Essence, one who is valid and “validator”. He doesn’t have two, like two kidneys. His love for us is amazing.

 

Another example of the firmness of Justice:

Among your offspring, you have three sons:

One hates you, he wants to kill you and your other children – everything that has your DNA. He is blinded by iniquity, greed, madness, evil... So much so that he is no longer man and behaves like a rabid beast.

Another is also greedy because, convinced by the first, he wants what is yours. Above all, he wants your possessions so he will have more than his brothers and sisters. He behaves as if he weren’t a part of your family. He has been infected by the greed of the first, and before the first fell into complete madness, they conspired to take what was yours. But the second didn’t dare to raise his hand against you, although in his thoughts he stopped loving you because he only saw you as a possession that he could have; but he didn’t hate you.

There is a third, who is happy the way he is, he still sees you as his father, but he loves the second brother so much that, for his sake, he doesn’t reveal his brothers’ plot, and felt the desire of his beloved brother was understandable. He doubts.

The result is that, it’s as if you are from different worlds. Someone who betrays or doubts, or doesn’t love your DNA, is emptied of life, for it’s the same DNA as theirs. Furthermore, if you hate your DNA as the first brother does, you not only empty yourself, but you also destroy the bag or container that was intertwined with the remaining particles of DNA.

Would it be possible to give life back to just one of them? No, because your DNA is justice par excellence, and the three were emptied of life due to the characteristics of the DNA itself. But you could create a new nature and, by donating a part of you, sow these particles to intertwine in the new nature. That would not be Injustice, for it’s not refilling the same nature, but making it new.

Now let’s look at this reading which also speaks of justice, this time from the side of the good, who could also “justly” say they felt slighted. This is so from the normal perspective, but also from heaven.

Gospel of Luke 15:12-32

The younger one said to his father, "Father, let me have the share of the estate that will come to me." So the father divided the property between them.

A few days later, the younger son got together everything he had and left for a distant country where he squandered his money on a life of debauchery.

'When he had spent it all, that country experienced a severe famine, and now he began to feel the pinch; so he hired himself out to one of the local inhabitants who put him on his farm to feed the pigs. And he would willingly have filled himself with the husks the pigs were eating but no one would let him have them. Then he came to his senses and said, "How many of my father's hired men have all the food they want and more, and here am I dying of hunger! I will leave this place and go to my father and say: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I no longer deserve to be called your son; treat me as one of your hired men."

So he left the place and went back to his father. 'While he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was moved with pity. He ran to the boy, clasped him in his arms and kissed him. Then his son said, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I no longer deserve to be called your son."

But the father said to his servants, "Quick! Bring out the best robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.

Bring the calf we have been fattening, and kill it; we will celebrate by having a feast, because this son of mine was dead and has come back to life; he was lost and is found." And they began to celebrate.

'Now the elder son was out in the fields, and on his way back, as he drew near the house, he could hear music and dancing. Calling one of the servants he asked what it was all about. The servant told him, "Your brother has come, and your father has killed the calf we had been fattening because he has got him back safe and sound." He was angry then and refused to go in, and his father came out and began to urge him to come in; but he retorted to his father, "All these years I have slaved for you and never once disobeyed any orders of yours, yet you never offered me so much as a kid for me to celebrate with my friends.

But, for this son of yours, when he comes back after swallowing up your property -- he and his loose women -- you kill the calf we had been fattening."

'The father said, "My son, you are with me always and all I have is yours.

But it was only right we should celebrate and rejoice, because your brother here was dead and has come to life; he was lost and is found." '

 

 

We are the ones who went off with the inheritance, or intended to, to Be by ourselves, but we fall into a “distant country” (world) where we no longer have the Spirit; we are empty and against the hardships of the world, have a terrible hunger to be alive. So much so that we even want to give ourselves to the world and eat the husks (idols) of the pigs (of the Eves). Now repentant, like a wretch who has nothing to do with his father, we say: I will get up, I will go to Him (history of Israel)... I have sinned against heaven and against you (in other versions, he says against you and against God, who would represent the Holy Spirit as in the foreshadowing with Abraham). It is then that man is prepared for salvation, and God approaches him and gives him many kisses (history of Israel) and tells the servants:

Bring out the best robe (Holy Spirit) and put it on him, put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.

The robe, which almost always refers to the Holy Spirit, in this case refers to Jesus Christ; “the best robe”, God created the freedom of Christ and it housed God, infinite, without changing Him one iota, and he keeps being Him, but he is also a created person.

The person of the Son (God’s essence) becomes man. Clothing him refers to Jesus himself (becoming man) or to man in the figure of Jesus.

“A ring on his finger and sandals on his feet” talks about to make Him nature of man; desires of God are like bags with Liberty and containment (or not) of the essence of God, without hands or feet (angels are sexless according to the church), but not us in our new nature.

Then he says: bring the calf we have been fattening, and kill it. Here it differentiates between Jesus’ person and Jesus the man: this is the sacrifice of the man (to understand this, it’s important to read 5.4 Foreshadowing of Christ in the Torah -Isaac- p 111). The fatted calf represents:

The best calf:  The higher because more ‘food’ is given.

The approval and blessing of the father; it is sacrificed on acceptance of son.

A cause for celebration and a meeting point around which all will meet; the eldest son will also meet them at the end, even if it isn’t written in the scripture, as his father’s reasons are self-evident.

The fatted calf, as I say, is Jesus Christ who reconciles heaven and earth. And who is the eldest son? In this dual perspective, he is the angels, those who were always faithful to God. Those for whom justice is also served, that is, for whom the Lamb is sacrificed. Because the lamb, which is and will be the meeting point, does not belong to the eldest son, but to the father. The son is offended, especially by that sacrifice, but can say or do nothing else but go to the meeting. The words dedicated to him can be no others, according to what is outlined in this essay regarding what we were and how the angels were created by God (person + “adapted” essence): "My son, you are with me always and all I have is yours.”

Anyway, this reading from the normal perspective has a lot of catechesis, and from heaven I think they could also give it a spin or two; but what seems clear in both cases is that is speaks of justice and mercy. A key that isn’t given much importance in the normal perspective is the fatted calf. From this perspective, it’s odd that the calf is almost what bothers the older brother most, when the other has squandered half of the estate more or less (a lamb or calf would be nothing in comparison).

Now an example of balance between the world and what was in heaven.

This reading that comes now is difficult to interpret completely from the earth, we are going to see it with its origin in heaven, as I insist, it happened. And to do so, let us think that what was desired by the fallen angels and by the Eve angels in particular, was the Holy Spirit, or precious essence of God, formerly "accessible" in heaven; that which made them Be. God in this world has put "gold" as the most desired object of man; a little to reproduce what was in heaven: a desire that can break our love for God and neighbor, a trial that allows us to recover what we lost.

Luke 16:1-13

1 He also said to his disciples, 'There was a rich man and he had a steward who was denounced to him for being wasteful with his property. 2 He called for the man and said, "What is this I hear about you? Draw me up an account of your stewardship because you are not to be my steward any longer."

 

We were in heaven and squandered the Holy Spirit (through doubt, betrayal...). We are dismissed, out of heaven, the reading now takes place on earth.

 

3 Then the steward said to himself, "Now that my master is taking the stewardship from me, what am I to do? Dig? I am not strong enough. Go begging? I should be too ashamed.

4 Ah, I know what I will do to make sure that when I am dismissed from office there will be some to welcome me into their homes."

 

We are already on the ground, in fact, he said that we were already fired, it doesn't make much sense to "before I get kicked out of the administration" and it doesn't make much sense that I can change receipts as it happens afterwards. Here administration refers to our life, in which we gain or lose the Holy Spirit according to our history. To dig or beg "may be interpreted as such and this reading is directed at those who can use money for their salvation. A wealthy old man, or most of us, does not have the strength to go on missions for our neighbor, or to give everything and go to the streets to ask for it as St. Francis of Assisi did.

 

5 'Then he called his master's debtors one by one. To the first he said, "How much do you owe my master?"

6 "One hundred measures of oil," he said. The steward said, "Here, take your bond; sit down and quickly write fifty."

7 To another he said, "And you, sir, how much do you owe?" "One hundred measures of wheat," he said. The steward said, "Here, take your bond and write eighty."

The debtors of their master are all men who are in the world, all those around us. Here he already speaks of unjust money; although we all have that debt, in some way sharing our gold of the world or unjust money (differentiation with the just money that in this' parable' is the Holy Spirit), we can make them welcome us at home, in the eternal abodes. Why is that? Why is money the same as Spirit? No. Because the world is a trial, and renouncing the world for the other or for God is an act of love, and love is what the Holy Spirit seeks. And do we each owe different amounts to God? Yes, we have different amounts to fill in, sizes of soul we emptied up there (parable of talents). But I think he means something else, I think he talks about everyone's story. That which God has with us in the world or in the material, and which can be "changed" with unjust gold. Because God provides what is necessary for our salvation. You mean the rich are so good? No. In fact, there are many rich and poor, who are not inscribed in the book of life (Eve), who seem to move with the randomness of the things of the world. It is true that God provides for the unrighteous also, but does He provide salvation history for all? I don't think so, because of the readings we see in the Bible (I speak in parable so that they don't understand me...), and because of justice, since the Eve believed Luzbel and because of these the Adams fell. It is righteousness that the Eve can be saved only by the Adams (from Adam's rib makes Eve) and continue to hear only the world. Perhaps it has happened to you that you have prayed for someone who is lost from God and a misfortune has occurred to him; he has broken a bone or something. I do, and I've heard other people say that why? Because God provides what is necessary for our salvation; so do our needs. And you can change someone's story by helping him with unjust gold and that help will be good for you and also for his story because the love received always leaves a mark; and by the mark you will act in his part of Spirit and by the value of gold (money, time...) in his story, intimately related to the administration of the Spirit.

And after all, will our soul debt (lost spirit) not be related to our history here (where, how were we born, in what religion do we grow...)? This is only aucubrations and in any case it would be for our salvation. As an example, the innocence of children with Down syndrome; perhaps their lack of it was somewhat minor, and this is the story they live here. And if the beginning of the story here had to do with the lack of it, if so, everything would be especially Just.

 

8 'The master praised the dishonest steward for his astuteness. For the children of this world are more astute in dealing with their own kind than are the children of light.' 9 'And so I tell you this: use money, tainted as it is, to win you friends, and thus make sure that when it fails you, they will welcome you into eternal dwellings.

10 Anyone who is trustworthy in little things is trustworthy in great; anyone who is dishonest in little things is dishonest in great.

11 If then you are not trustworthy with money, that tainted thing, who will trust you with genuine riches?

12 And if you are not trustworthy with what is not yours, who will give you what is your very own?

 

God congratulates you, greets you again. Since the world doesn't make any sense (after stealing from him), from heaven it does. The children of this world, it refers to all of us, not the wicked ones who are super cunning smarts. The children of the light, it refers to us also, but in what we were before we were' sent away', when we were lost desires of God.

The sons of this world (men) are more cunning with their people (men) than the sons of light (doubtful desire) with their people (doubtful desire).

Perhaps it refers (sons of light) to what happened during betrayal or to the moment between betrayal and the real moment in which God creates man's nature (before Noah and Babel, we used to live for 800 years, etc.).

The rest is clear from both perspectives. If you are not generous with money, if you do not love, how will you receive the Holy Spirit? The least is money, the most is the Spirit.

If you are not trustworthy with what is not yours, who will give you what is your very own? = “the Essence or Holy Spirit that you lost in heaven”

 

13 'No servant can be the slave of two masters: he will either hate the first and love the second, or be attached to the first and despise the second. You cannot be the slave both of God and of money.'

 

That said, money is the representation of all idols because with it everything in the world can be achieved. As proof is set and the proof is precisely to use it for the good of others, not to worship it as a false god or idol. Obviously, we cannot worship the world and God, because by definition that is the proof. A test that will allow us to love and recover the Holy Spirit, 'ours' if God wills.

 

In heaven it happened, that iniquity entered into the fallen angels when they desired the Essence of God, and not for what it is, but to be more, to be by themselves and without God; when they emptied themselves because the Spirit could not live with the lack of love, they ended up hating God. They just hate, they lost their freedom. With money, something similar happens, it is not bad in itself, but when it makes you hoard without taking into account your neighbor or God (or his Word), in the end you only have ears for yourself and the world. And so it is all done so that we may be saved, it is not a trap, it is not to judge us, because we have already come condemned, because we freely "commit suicide" by hating like fallen angels, by unloving like the Eve angels (fools of the world) and by doubting like the Adam angels. All empty, some still free and of these last, some deaf (Evas) and others inscribed in the book of Life (Adam).

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

EVIDENCES. EVERYTHING WAS WRITTEN.

7-      The Apocalypse (Revelation).

 

After all this, is it true that the end is near?

 

·      A bit of numerology. 777-111=666.

Let’s talk about some numbers used in the Bible.

The number 1 symbolizes God for being singular.

The number 7 symbolizes perfection, the absolute. Everything was created in 7 days; after work (6 days) comes rest, just as heaven will come for those who are fortunate after the world.

 

Matthew 18:21-22

Then Peter went up to him and said, 'Lord, how often must I forgive my brother if he wrongs me? As often as seven times?'

Jesus answered, 'Not seven, I tell you, but seventy-seven times.

 

It is perfection, what should be.

 

The number 3 symbolizes the whole. There are three times: past, present and future. 3 is forever.

The number 6 is the devil, or so they say. Actually, it represents the number of man and, as such, could well be the devil because, as I propose, we have ceased to be what we were in order to be mediocre men because of betrayal, instigated by the devil. Our being men, then, would be an achievement of the devil.

It is the number of man because God created man on the 6th day.

6 is also a perfect number = the sum of its divisors excepting itself => 1 + 2 + 3 = 6, which may also symbolize that 6 (the devil) replaces the three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

Superlatives.

 

Revelation 13:18

There is need for shrewdness here: anyone clever may interpret the number of the beast: it is the number of a human being, the number 666.

 

In addition, the superlative that the Israelites made was to repeat the same word three times (Holy, Holy, Holy, the most Holy). The same happens with 6.

If we subtract the Holy Trinity God, 111 (Superlative of 1 single God and also 1 + 1 + 1 makes 3 persons; 3 = totality, forever, eternity. Then 111 represents God the Trinity; one God, three persons), from the superlative of what is perfect, 777, we are left with 666.

 

     Perfection (777) - God (111) = Devil (666)

 

As I have said, this is basically what happened in heaven. Being in the perfection of heaven, deceived by the devil, we tried to remove God and found ourselves dead and out of heaven along with the Devil. And at the same time, it is the number of man, as I said: what we are now after having removed God from us.

 

 

So, “it is the number of a human being, the number 666.”, it refers to “it is the number of the human being” because Man is the devil's achievement.

In adittion, as for the number of a human being, I will reiterate what has been said in the section “Original Sin and the Council of Trent”. It is also the best way to say that the beast was a wish like us without talking about our origin in heaven or without actually mentioning it. Something that seems to happen by looking at the “dual” meaning of the Bible in all the passages that I’ve been discussing. Finally, I believe that each 6 also represents each of the actors of this world, from which we fell here to leave God: Adam 6, Eve (deaf) 6 and demons 6.

·      The Seven Seals

 

Looking at these readings from the “dual” perspective gives new meanings, as I said, to many passages. In Revelation 5, it talks about everything in the book, more than just the seven seals. It asks who will be able to open it, and then says that it is the son of David, the slain lamb...

 

Revelation 5:1-14

1 I saw that in the right hand of the One sitting on the throne there was a scroll that was written on back and front and was sealed with seven seals.

2 Then I saw a powerful angel who called with a loud voice, 'Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?'

3 But there was no one, in heaven or on the earth or under the earth, who was able to open the scroll and read it.

4 I wept bitterly because nobody could be found to open the scroll and read it,

5 but one of the elders said to me, 'Do not weep. Look, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed, and so he will open the scroll and its seven seals.'

6 Then I saw, in the middle of the throne with its four living creatures and the circle of the elders, a Lamb standing that seemed to have been sacrificed; it had seven horns, and it had seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits that God has sent out over the whole world.

7 The Lamb came forward to take the scroll from the right hand of the One sitting on the throne,

8 and when he took it, the four living creatures prostrated themselves before him and with them the twenty-four elders; each one of them was holding a harp and had a golden bowl full of incense which are the prayers of the saints.

9 They sang a new hymn: You are worthy to take the scroll and to break its seals, because you were sacrificed, and with your blood you bought people for God of every race, language, people and nation

10 and made them a line of kings and priests for God, to rule the world.

11 In my vision, I heard the sound of an immense number of angels gathered round the throne and the living creatures and the elders; there were ten thousand times ten thousand of them and thousands upon thousands,

12 loudly chanting: Worthy is the Lamb that was sacrificed to receive power, riches, wisdom, strength, honour, glory and blessing.

13 Then I heard all the living things in creation -- everything that lives in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and in the sea, crying: To the One seated on the throne and to the Lamb, be all praise, honour, glory and power, for ever and ever.

14 And the four living creatures said, 'Amen'; and the elders prostrated themselves to worship.

 

Consider what has been said so far: that because of our betrayal, our soul becomes unable to receive the Holy Spirit and it is Christ who “fixes” man with his sacrifice, who opens that closed or atrophied soul. That scroll would be each of us, in each of its pages. So in Jesus Christ, all the souls of men are cured, of every creed or nation. Those pages are all of mankind and the heavenly creatures of God, and he opens the possibility for us to return to God, to life itself; he opens up the world and the Universe as the stage of a Story of Salvation that without him would not be possible. That is, we have the potential to be saved, because we are still free and we could again choose Lucifer, which is why this world becomes a test to recover those who could be saved. The key is Jesus Christ and his Word, Word of God, extreme Love. Love for the weak, who according to the world are assumed to be inferior. He teaches us the path of love: the renunciation of what anchors us to the world (which is the test’s tool in Lucifer’s favor), and teaches us to put ourselves last, as he did.

The apocalypse is written without time, because ultimately it predicts the end of the world. Jesus Christ is described in future tense as the one who will open the 7 seals because of his sacrifice. Which is like saying that, without the passion of Jesus Christ, the world would not have existed. From a future for the origin of the world, even our past in the world would disappear. This is because God is outside of time, and because Christ (Son before time) offers to save the wishes (us, already existing) in God’s plan to give us our new nature, which includes the Universe and everything we know.

 

Chapter 6 continues with the seven seals. These now seem to speak chronologically in the history of man, but starting from heaven with the way God’s creatures were after the betrayal.

To understand the seals, it’s helpful to read these verses from Chapter 4, which speaks of heaven and its beings.

 

Revelation 4:5-8

 5 Flashes of lightning were coming from the throne, and the sound of peals of thunder, and in front of the throne there were seven flaming lamps burning, the seven Spirits of God.

6 In front of the throne was a sea as transparent as crystal. In the middle of the throne and around it, were four living creatures all studded with eyes, in front and behind.

7 The first living creature was like a lion, the second like a bull, the third living creature had a human face, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle.

8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was studded with eyes all the way round as well as inside; and day and night they never stopped singing: Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God, the Almighty; who was, and is and is to come.'

 

Imagine for a moment that these “living creatures”, full of eyes, are the peoples or types of angels according to their faithfulness and size, (this will be understood better later in the seals). Thus, in the first four seals it speaks of the “parties”, shall we say.

 

Revelation 6

1 Then, in my vision, I saw the Lamb break one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures shout in a voice like thunder, 'Come!'

2 Immediately I saw a white horse appear, and its rider was holding a bow; he was given a victor's crown and he went away, to go from victory to victory.

3 When he broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature shout, 'Come!'

4 And out came another horse, bright red, and its rider was given this duty: to take away peace from the earth and set people killing each other. He was given a huge sword.

5 When he broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature shout, 'Come!' Immediately I saw a black horse appear, and its rider was holding a pair of scales;

6 and I seemed to hear a voice shout from among the four living creatures and say, 'A day's wages for a quart of corn, and a day's wages for three quarts of barley, but do not tamper with the oil or the wine.'

7 When he broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature shout, 'Come!'

8 Immediately I saw another horse appear, deathly pale, and its rider was called Death, and Hades followed at its heels. They were given authority over a quarter of the earth, to kill by the sword, by famine, by plague and through wild beasts.

9 When he broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of all the people who had been killed on account of the Word of God, for witnessing to it.

10 They shouted in a loud voice, 'Holy, true Master, how much longer will you wait before you pass sentence and take vengeance for our death on the inhabitants of the earth?'

11 Each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to be patient a little longer, until the roll was completed of their fellow-servants and brothers who were still to be killed as they had been.

12 In my vision, when he broke the sixth seal, there was a violent earthquake and the sun went as black as coarse sackcloth; the moon turned red as blood all over,

13 and the stars of the sky fell onto the earth like figs dropping from a fig tree when a high wind shakes it;

14 the sky disappeared like a scroll rolling up and all the mountains and islands were shaken from their places.

15 Then all the kings of the earth, the governors and the commanders, the rich people and the men of influence, the whole population, slaves and citizens, hid in caverns and among the rocks of the mountains.

16 They said to the mountains and the rocks, 'Fall on us and hide us away from the One who sits on the throne and from the retribution of the Lamb.

17 For the Great Day of his retribution has come, and who can face it?'

 

Revelation 7:1-3

1 Next I saw four angels, standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the world to keep them from blowing over the land or the sea or any tree.

2 Then I saw another angel rising where the sun rises, carrying the seal of the living God; he called in a powerful voice to the four angels whose duty was to devastate land and sea,

3 'Wait before you do any damage on land or at sea or to the trees, until we have put the seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.'

 

Revelation 8:1-2

1 The Lamb then broke the seventh seal, and there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.

2 Next I saw seven trumpets being given to the seven angels who stand in the presence of God.

 

The first seal (6:1), has a Horseman riding a white horse with a crown and is the victor and will be the victor. It seems to refer to Jesus Christ, first wish of God who remains in Him and vice versa. The beginning of everything, even for the angels. The 1st Living Creature would be the people of God, the faithful Angels => like a lion.

The second seal (6:3), has a Horseman riding a red horse. He gives freedom to Lucifer, who uses or will use it to take away peace from the earth (= heaven). He will decide to rise up in rebellion. He has a large sword; now, I believe we all have different sizes of wish (souls), as I have explained before: a parabola of talents. I think Lucifer must have one of considerable size. In the Bible he is described as a beautiful angel before the uprising. The 2nd Living Creature would be the fallen Angels => bull (with horns).

The third seal (6:5), has a Horseman riding a black horse holding a set of scales. I don’t know if it refers to an archangel or the Holy Spirit because it is responsible for measuring our capacity for “God”, on instructions from the same God => “voice from among the four living creatures”; so the 3rd Living Creature seems to be us, the rest of God’s wishes => “had a human face”. Those of us who we were made human. It speaks of volumes measured in money, like the parabola of talents as I said. But the wine (Life, Spirituality) and oil, which could be the soul (gives body, consistency) are not tampered with, the freedom that makes us independent as wishes and forms our person. *In other translations is says “do not harm the oil and wine”

The fourth seal (6:7), has a Horseman riding a deathly pale horse, is called Death and is followed by Hades. “Death” is the result of betrayal, and Hades is the “dead” who pursue or poison the Adams (with power over a quarter of the earth). The Living Creature is those who listened to Satan, the Eves; those who are cannot hear here => like a flying eagle, hunting the Adams.

The fifth seal (6:9). There is no longer a horse. It is no longer shown by a Living Creature. All of the positions or participants have been described. In this seal, it speaks of those who fall in the battle of heaven (and also of earth) against the followers of Lucifer and the justice they claim.

The sixth seal (6:12). Earthquake... the stars fall from the sky, which disappears like a scroll rolling up. The fall of the doubting angels (stars) and the traitors. Heaven is no longer for them, and they fall to the “earth” (I believe at this point we are already empty and on the ground next to God or it simply refers to outside of heaven). It continues… the “earth” will not be destroyed until the servants of our God (those who return to heaven) are marked.

The seventh seal (8:1). Now we are really on earth. It says there is a half hour of silence in heaven; let’s say this represents our years of history in the world before the end (4000 or 5000 years?). Then, this would be the seal that really speaks of the end of the world as we know it, because after that half hour there are many more verses speaking of seven angels with seven trumpets and the tragedies that happen to the world when they are sounded.

 

This is what I see. God shows us everything, from the beginning in heaven. And with all of this, I’m referring to the book of life with its seven seals. In Revelation is the before and after. God tells us that He is in the center, and that around Him there are 4 types of “wishes” or creations, which are the result of how they have exercised their freedom and what they have become.

Only the first Living Creature is in the middle (of Him), true to His Essence, and the Horseman, Christ also remains in Him, represented by the lion and the crown of victory. The others are around the throne. The distance is not specified. They are the angels, archangels and faithful beings.

The red horse also seems obvious, with the horns and all.

The black horse is the most complicated. It seems that the voice is God, because it says it comes from among the 4 living creatures. The living creature, us (with human face), distributes the volume (quarts) of our soul or capacity to receive the Holy Spirit, represented by black because what it ultimately does is remove Life, the Holy Spirit, or at least distribute what is left of the soul without the Spirit; it measures us and determines the size of our empty “bags”. It says, “A day’s wages for a quart of corn, and a day’s wages for three quarts of barley, but do not tamper with the oil or the wine.” Well, if, as I propose, the Adams are different from the Eves because they did not listen to the devil but to the Eves themselves (for love), they are the ones who are best off. The Adams, open to the word of God, will receive a volume (not weight) of corn (in the Bible, corn usually means wheat, as the corn native to the New World was not known in biblical times – bread from wheat also represents the Holy Spirit). The Eves, a volume of barley (which is often used to make alcoholic beverages, representing the amusements and idols of the world, perhaps). Do not tamper with the oil, could mean that even after the betrayal He allows us to keep the soul or bag that gives us consistency (to both the Adams and Eves); it isn’t taken away from us, as it is with the Holy Spirit. The wine perhaps is the freedom to choose (which gives us the possibility of living - lower case – of choosing, also in the world, even without the Holy Spirit).

The deathly pale one is the only one that has a name, which is why I believe it is the consequence itself of those who have followed it. It is death. And it (the Living Creature) is followed by those who chase Life in order to destroy it, both in heaven and on earth. They are the Eves who listened to Satan and who on earth only have ears for the idols (the world); they cannot hear the Word and are the demons, etc. They have power over a quarter of the earth, which I think are the Adams. Those who kill are the wild beasts of the earth (demons), plague (the Eves convince or spread the disease), the sword I’m not sure whether it refers to something used by the fallen in heaven or if it refers to the fear of death, of hunger for need. They are represented by flying eagles (hunting Adam).

It seems clear then, that we already existed before the world and when we stopped being, God gives us the world to try to recover us. This is the conclusion I have come to because I get to the same place here as from Genesis and other passages of the Bible.

It follows then that Jesus Christ opens the seven seals (begins creation), and even opens the possibility for a new nature of salvation, man redeemed or potentially able to receive the Spirit. And he not only opens the seals to us, but also for all creation, because everything else is created because of God’s first wish, Jesus Christ, who pleases God and maintains His own Essence.

This perspective changes a lot compared to the one we already know of the four horsemen of the apocalypse (Victory, War, Famine and Death), which is why I say that this new point of view finds another, deeper meaning.

Thus, the Apocalypse known as the book of revelation, would be a complete revelation that speaks to us from the origin of heaven and our end again in heaven to the one who achieves it.

As a curiosity, I’ve included the verse that speaks of a joint creation of everyone before (in) the creation of the world, and how we arrive already marked (if not, how arbitrary it would be to write some names and not others).

 

Revelation 17:8 

'The beast you have seen was once alive and is alive no longer; it is yet to come up from the Abyss, but only to go to its destruction. And the people of the world, whose names have not been written since the beginning of the world in the book of life, will be astonished when they see how the beast was once alive and is alive no longer, and is still to come.

 

 

 

 

 

 

·      Continuation of the Exegesis of the Revelation

 

 

 

The structure is repeated:

 

In the seals we have seen, the first four speak of the living. The more general ones. Then three "later." And from the seventh seal, the time changes. In the following structure, of 7 angels with trumpets, the first four trumpets speak of what happened in heaven. The next three are "posterior. And in the seventh trumpet, the "time" changes. Also, just before the seventh seal and the seventh trumpet, an angel appears (from the east in one case - Rev 7:2 and from heaven in the other - Rev 10:1 -) who speaks of what prophets will do and suffer in our land. It also speaks of the time that will be set aside to mark the servants of God. It seems to be a pause that speaks concretely of our land. Finally, there is another structure of 7 angels with bowls that correspond to the punishment or consequence of what happened with the angels of the 7 trumpets actually use the same symbolism or metaphors for each angel.

 

 

First structure of 7 angels (these have trumpets).

We have seen the seals that speak of the types of beings that remained after betrayal.

From verse 8, the seventh seal tells us about the battle of heaven. What happened, and it goes on telling us about it with the seven Angels who play their trumpets.

Rev 8:7  The first angel blew his trumpet, and there followed hail and fire, mixed with blood, which fell on the earth; and a third of the earth was burnt up, and a third of the trees were burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

First Trumpet. The hail and fire destroy one-third of the earth, trees.... are burned to the ground. In these first four angels (with their trumpets) it will tell us what happened in the kingdom of heaven then. When it speaks of water or sea, it usually speaks of Essence or state of Essence; moreover, the Essence of God is often referred to in the Bible as a place (King). Now it speaks of trees and grass, which refer to the concrete, to the person (= freedom + decisions taken by each one; trees to choose from in Eden represent freedom -or maybe other beings directly-). Thus, the hail and fire mixed with blood represent the angels who fell and whose person was destroyed (they no longer have freedom), the fallen angels. This is confirmed by the other structure of 7 angels with bowls, posterior.

Rev 8:8  The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea; 9  and a third of the sea became blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

Second Trumpet. A big mountain falls burning into the sea. Mountain talks about something tall and big. It refers to Satan who falls from Angel of the greatest and most beautiful (see Ezekiel 28:12-17) to one more. This causes many to be convinced by their action; many who had water mixed with salt (sea) not pure water, which refers to hatred, iniquity or simply greed. All these are all those who hated like Satan, the rest of those who will be fallen angels. They are also the ones who desired the Essence, but did not dare to raise the eves. He says that one-third of the fish, once living angels, die as such, and their ships (or persons with freedom) are destroyed; the demons now only hate, they will not keep their person with freedom as we keep it still fallen on earth. Thus, in the thirds, some die that can be eves (also of course the fallen), others turn their salt water into blood or hatred, the fallen and these also lose their ships, their person.

Rev 8:10  The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the fountains of water. 11  The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died of the water, because it was made bitter.

Third Trumpet. A big star falls. Again, it is the demon (Ajenjo), which falls on fresh water, the Adams. Let us remember, the Adams did not want to be more, but "help" the eves out of love; it is not salt water, but fresh water. This third part says that he becomes a Wormwood, many people die for it (vacuum of God). The Adams also emptied (justice).

Rev 8:12  The fourth angel blew his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of their light was darkened; a third of the day was kept from shining, and likewise a third of the night.

Fourth Trumpet. One third of the sun, moon and stars were wounded. The day loses one-third of the clarity. This is a consequence of the same thing, water or the essence of God disappears from them. I won't say it's gone shadowy because I don't think that can happen. I think he ran away from them. Thus, the lack of light is darkness. The stars are the angels already mentioned, the moon reflects the light of the sun, of God; those who hear, here it specifies in Adam. This point is more serious than the previous ones. It seems that God himself intervenes here.

 

 

Rev 8:13  Then I looked, and I heard an eagle crying with a loud voice, as it flew in midheaven, "Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, at the blasts of the other trumpets which the three angels are about to blow!"

Separation. Now an eagle marks a separation (8.13). There are of the inhabitants of the earth when the voices of the trumpets of the other three angels sound. I believe that from this point on, it refers above all to' persons' as such, not to changes of the inner essence in the raised or doubtful. It may even refer to the time when we are not on earth, but empty, but close to God (previous to Noah). Let us remember, in this part Cain slew Abel directly (person to person); in Eden Eve slew Adam (indeed, condemns him) and before that the serpent killed Eve.

Rev 9:1  And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key of the shaft of the bottomless pit; 2  he opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft. 3  Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth; 4  they were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green growth or any tree, but only those of mankind who have not the seal of God upon their foreheads; 5  they were allowed to torture them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torture was like the torture of a scorpion, when it stings a man. 6  And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death will fly from them. 7  In appearance the locusts were like horses arrayed for battle; on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces, 8  their hair like women's hair, and their teeth like lions' teeth; 9  they had scales like iron breastplates, and the noise of their wings was like the noise of many chariots with horses rushing into battle. 10  They have tails like scorpions, and stings, and their power of hurting men for five months lies in their tails. 11  They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit; his name in Hebrew is Abad'don, and in Greek he is called Apol'lyon.

Fifth Trumpet. Again it begins with Satan's fall: the star that falls from heaven and leads the demons. Here they torment the Eves and the Adams. As a weapon, the poison.  I don't think souls can die. I don't know whether it refers to suffering for being empty of God or to a different suffering. As for the five months, I suppose it refers to the period that we are with God, but not in God, in the moment before the earth; that time, without the bodies that will later protect us here, was determined. Or perhaps, if this is situated down here, to the period of time we all have in our world, including the demon to tempt us. In this part, demons cannot attack persons (nor their freedom - trees and grass -) we are tempted and Satan attacks us by thought. This period is a period of darkness, because we have already fallen away from God. Perhaps darkness also refers to God's hiding place (Noah Tower of Babel).

Rev 9:13  Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God, 14  saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphra'tes." 15  So the four angels were released, who had been held ready for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, to kill a third of mankind. 16  The number of the troops of cavalry was twice ten thousand times ten thousand; I heard their number. 17  And this was how I saw the horses in my vision: the riders wore breastplates the color of fire and of sapphire and of sulphur, and the heads of the horses were like lions' heads, and fire and smoke and sulphur issued from their mouths. 18  By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed, by the fire and smoke and sulphur issuing from their mouths. 19  For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails; their tails are like serpents, with heads, and by means of them they wound. 20  The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands nor give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot either see or hear or walk; 21  nor did they repent of their murders or their sorceries

Sixth Trumpet. Again they kill or exterminate afterwards says, to the third part of the men. I think he goes back to talking about them, this time of persons, not of the essence as it said before, and this time on earth. The fact that it says exterminates, makes me think that they are fallen angels who can never have life, or Essence of God; Those who are no longer free, and only hate. The other men of whom it speaks, who do not repent of their idols, murders, witchcraft, fornications, or rapine, I believe they are the Eves (and Adams perhaps). As it speaks of four angels (cardinal points), it makes me think that this and not the previous one is the moment in which it puts us in our earth and what happens in her. This coincides with the angels of the cups; Better compare. Let us also remember that 6 is the number of man (Man Nature on earth, on the 6th day he made man).

Now he makes another small separation, in which he speaks of an angel giving a little book to John; He devours it, and proves that it tastes like honey but it bitter the entrails. He also speaks of two important witnesses who are always before God. He tells John to seal what he has heard, that when the Mystery of God is consumed, something that by its will remains here revealed, the end of time will come. Well, I estimate that in about 7 years from this we know, the end will come, about 2025 (only God knows). What sense would it have to continue if God's concealment has ended? And if any of you should die tonight, I exhort you to be converted. It is no joke the eternal suffering, which now also by reason seems logical. Before, we thought that, being God love how could hell exist? The lack of Him leads us with the one who hates, with the worst sadist.

Rev 10:7  but that in the days of the trumpet call to be sounded by the seventh angel, the mystery of God, as he announced to his servants the prophets, should be fulfilled.

Rev 11:15  Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign for ever and ever." 16  And the twenty-four elders who sit on their thrones before God fell on their faces and worshiped God,  17  saying, "We give thanks to thee, Lord God Almighty, who art and who wast, that thou hast taken thy great power and begun to reign. 18  The nations raged, but thy wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, for rewarding thy servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear thy name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth." 19  Then God's temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen within his temple; and there were flashes of lightning, voices, peals of thunder, an earthquake, and heavy hail.

 

The Seventh Trumpet. It says:The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign for ever and ever." And then «We give thanks to thee, Lord God Almighty, who art and who wast, that thou hast taken thy great power and begun to reign… ». Then God's temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen within his temple; and there were flashes of lightning, voices, peals of thunder, an earthquake, and heavy hail.

 

Here it seems that it speaks of the final judgment, I think it is the moment in which everything is resolved by God the Father. It is the moment in which condemnation is determined for some and the "salvation" for others is clarified. The ark of the covenant that is Christ appears. The only one who could redeem us was the first of those created, the one who pleased God the Father and for whom all the others were made. Christ is the Covenant, it is the Ark, symbolizing the container as something created wonderful and the interior, the same God; Created person that contains the exact essence of God (this is also a prefiguration of Christ in the Exodus that I have not put at the point of foreshadowing). Thanks to the acceptance of the Son, the earth is created, where we already fall with a judgment for the lack we made when we were with God. The Eves have theirs: they will not have ears for the word of God, they can only be saved by the Adams (rib) as they attained perdition by the Eves. The demons will not even have a body, because they do not have freedom, they can not exercise freedom. The Adams are the ones in the book of life. The faithful angels also have their justice, for they remain in heaven, in the river, bathed in one or another intensity by the Living Water, by God the Holy Spirit; In addition, the others are expelled and do not receive the same as them.

 

 

 Then follows a great sign appeared in the sky:

Rev 12:1  And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; 2  she was with child and she cried out in her pangs of birth, in anguish for delivery. 3 And another portent appeared in heaven; behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems upon his heads. 4 His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to bear a child, that he might devour her child when she brought it forth; 5  she brought forth a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne. 6 and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which to be nourished for [1260] one thousand two hundred and sixty days.  [7 Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they were defeated and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world--he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.  10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, "Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.  11 And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.  (12)  Rejoice then, O heaven and you that dwell therein! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!"]  13 And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had borne the male child.  14 But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.  15 The serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, to sweep her away with the flood. 16 But the earth came to the help of the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river which the dragon had poured from his mouth. 17 Then the dragon was angry with the woman, and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God and bear testimony to Jesus.

We're done with the 7 angels structure. And we keep talking about passion told as a story. Dressed in the 'sun' it seems evident, that she is Christ, the Essence of God within her. The moon beneath her feet I believe refers to the Adams, who will reflect the light of the sun, that is, they will hear and follow (many) His word. She is our queen and custodian, protector and most loving as a mother (remember: she does not maintain the exact essence of God, but she never emptied herself, she did not betray either in heaven or down here and she also took our nature as well). The twelve stars, I suppose, will be the apostles, not the tribes.

The first two verses, I insist, speak of the moment of passion. Mary's suffering in Christ's passion (the sword), which is the moment when we are all "born" (or resurrected as capable of receiving the Holy Spirit); childbirth. We know that Mary is Virgin, the pains are those of our childbirth (Christ's passion) in our new born Nature Man Capable of God; as an aside before continuing I add this:

Isaiah 66:7  "Before she was in labor she gave birth; before her pain came upon her she was delivered of a son. 8  Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Shall a nation be brought forth in one moment? For as soon as Zion was in labor she brought forth her sons. 9  Shall I bring to the birth and not cause to bring forth? says the LORD; shall I, who cause to bring forth, shut the womb? says your God. 10  "Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice with her in joy, all you who mourn over her; 11  that you may suck and be satisfied with her consoling breasts; that you may drink deeply with delight from the abundance of her glory."…

 

Verse Apo 12.3-4 introduces us to another participant in the story, the red Dragon, who, although he also represents the Roman Empire, is the same demon and, together with him, speaks as always, and as a presentation or title, of the third part of the stars (or angels) that fell to the earth because of him. This demon, at the moment of passion or childbirth, tries to devour Him, because we know, in fact, that He was tempted several times before. On the cross, was He not to be tempted by the devil? Would he not whisper in His ear: "Shout to them, give them hell...!" Didn't the Pharisees make comments of contempt to Him... If you are the Son of God, save yourself and get off the cross! But He did not fall, the birth took place in love and was taken away to God and to His throne. Now it says 6. The woman fled to the desert where she has a place prepared to be fed for 1260 days.

Well, Mary goes to the desert, it has a double meaning, as so many times. One speaking of childbirth, as the real birth of Jesus, in which case, we speak of the red dragon as the Roman Empire, historical fact: Mary flees with newborn Christ because Herod wanted to kill Him; and another, speaking of childbirth as passion, after the death of Christ, and after living the rest of her life as a woman, Mary, morning star, flees to the desert. This desert could be our "heavens," that is, the universe, within the arc of time. It is said that Mary is the morning star that comforts the souls in purgatory when they see her pass by; that she is the star that illuminates us and guides us towards her Son. This being so, the two large wings of which he speaks in 13 would, of course, be the Holy Spirit and "be fed" to that very thing, to receive the Holy Spirit. Then he repeats it again in 13, returning to the story, which indicates that what is placed between 7 and 12, included, is information added separately, although related. It refers to the defeat suffered by the demons after the passion, in which already any hope of maintaining some 'heavenly' life ceases for them, because their shield has been removed, the kidnapped, to us, who already in Nature Man can maintain God no matter how much they blackmail. This is the land of which he now speaks to them (9). The way of telling it, however, is as always ambiguous, it seems to speak from heaven and from earth at the same time. It says 12.11 they defeated him thanks to the blood of the lamb, it could refer to the righteous who died before the passion and now after the passion they rise up victorious, but rather it seems a form of conscious to give strength to the story and at the same time make it ambiguous between heaven and earth or alternate times. In heaven, it would be the moment when Christ offers or accepts the mission to validate human nature, a decision that will involve his birth or delivery on earth, God's solution to save us; which leads to the expulsion of demons from heaven by Michael and his angels (in this case, the blood of the lamb is the offering/acceptance of the sacrifice in heaven).

This time, it says that three and a half times will pass, when before it said 1260 days, which tells us it actually talks about different things.This I explain later in more detail, the sealed prophecy of Daniel p. 201, and comes to say that they are equivalent numbers: 3'5 years = 42 months = 1260 days, but 3'5 is used more to speak of the heavenly, the not tangible, 1260 of the earthly; here it is very clearly seen (however, better to read the point of Daniel's Sealed Prophecy and Revelation).  These numbers speak to us of the periods in our history of betrayal and salvation. The period to which he refers (3'5) is from the passion to the end of the world, but at the same time in the heavens (of the universe this time), that is, the time during which Mary, in the non-visible or non-tangible (3'5), accompanies us and acts as a beacon, not only for Catholics, but for all humanity.

The words "like a river of vomited water" (15) may refer to the fact that the devil and his followers are trying to reach Mary who remains within time, with us, but who they will not be able to reach because they are tied to the earth; this is difficult to interpret.

 

 

After the 7 trumpets, pause to talk about the Beast.

 

Rev 13:1 And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems upon its horns and a blasphemous name upon its heads. 2  And the beast that I saw was like a leopard, its feet were like a bear's, and its mouth was like a lion's mouth. And to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority. 3  One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound, but its mortal wound was healed, and the whole earth followed the beast with wonder. 4  Men worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?" 5  And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months; 6  it opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell in heaven. 7  Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and tongue and nation, 8  and all who dwell on earth will worship it, every one whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb that was slain..

This first part tells us about the beast that emerged from the sea. And this beast represents the fallen angels. The sea is turbid or dirty water, which is not pure. The sea also symbolizes death. Death of being or rather, of not having the Water of Life. The ancient serpent or Satan is the one who convinces the fallen angels, gives them the power of beast, they also hate. In this "Beast" is included Satan himself who is part of the fallen angels. (Then in Rev 17:11 it says: And the Beast, which was and is not, makes the eighth, but is one of the seven).  Thus the mortally wounded head that was healed is Satan himself, who, after being overcome by the sword in heaven, is "healed" to fulfill all righteousness in the salvation of the Adams. On earth (See Justice and Redemption in Christ p.165). When it says the whole earth followed the dragon, it means that all of us on earth in one way or another have followed the Dragon (or we have believed him if we are Eves, or we have believed the Eves if we are Adams); That is to say, it is true that the whole earth followed him, but not the faithful angels who did not fall to the earth. Everything he says afterwards also refers to what happens on our earth...

Rev 13:11  Then I saw another beast which rose out of the earth; it had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. 12  It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. 13  It works great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men; 14  and by the signs which it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast, it deceives those who dwell on earth, bidding them make an image for the beast which was wounded by the sword and yet lived; 15  and it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast so that the image of the beast should even speak, and to cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. 16  Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, 17  so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18  This calls for wisdom: let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number, its number is six hundred and sixty-six.

This second part tells us about the Beast from the earth. These are the Eves, they do not hate, with two horns like a lamb, but they speak like serpents. The Eves, remember, persuade the Adams, exercising the same power as the same Satan who convinced the Eve. It brings fire down from heaven to earth, I believe it means that they cause some great faithful angels to fall (or convince), or even that by means of the eves they come to hate becoming other fallen angels. If there had been no Eves, the Adams would not have fallen, for these "doubted" for the love of the Eve. That is to say, without the Eve, it would not have been necessary for God to have created the world to try to redeem the Adams, since these would remain angels. In this way, infusing breath into the image of the Beast, that is, "healing" it to make it present in the world, is the responsibility of the Eve. To Satan, once overcome (killed by the sword), God recovered him so that, in fulfilling all justice, he could also recover the Adams in the new man nature; Which also has to pass the test that the angels passed in the heaven and we there we failed: to despise to Satan. ...Many on earth have been killed for not worshiping idols... This Beast is then called a false prophet. In effect, the Eva make the cause of Satan their own, promoting it and announcing it as god (false god, false prophet). 

Regarding the 666 I have already explained in "Before a little Numerology p.177 (should read)," which comes from 777-111 = 666; Of the perfect we take away God and we stay with the devil. In addition, this number (6) is the number of man, also the attainment of the devil, because without him there would be no men but angels. Thus, 666 = man = Number of the Beast. Thus it says that all of the earth (big, small, kings ...) have the mark of the beast in the hand or in the forehead. We have been made men by action (Eves, hand) or by doubt (Adams, front). Once empty of God we remain dead, "thrown away"; We can only exercise our freedom when God puts our prosthesis, bodies. That freedom is to buy and sell. Thanks to God and to the passion men will later have the possibility of receiving the Holy Spirit, not so the demons that only hate and have no body, are not men. We can win and lose Holy Spirit (buy: you get rid of "gold of the world", you win Spirit; sell backwards). It is important to differentiate between bearing the mark of the Beast, which is worn by all men, and "accepting" the mark of the Beast which, I believe, later on, refers to accepting to live as man for the world, also by action, many Rich people... or by desire: the one who does not have but idolizes and desires riches.

Then continue with those who accompany the lamb. Rev 14: 1-7..

And a new structure of seven angels (in our land):

 

Rev 14:6  Then I saw another angel flying in midheaven, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and tongue and people; 7  and he said with a loud voice, "Fear God and give him glory, for the hour of his judgment has come; and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the fountains of water." 8  Another angel, a second, followed, saying, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who made all nations drink the wine of her impure passion." 9  And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If any one worships the beast and its image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10  he also shall drink the wine of God's wrath, poured unmixed into the cup of his anger, and he shall be tormented with fire and sulphur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11  And the smoke of their torment goes up for ever and ever; and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name." 12  Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. 13  And I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord henceforth." "Blessed indeed," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!" 14  Then I looked, and lo, a white cloud, and seated on the cloud one like a son of man, with a golden crown on his head, and a sharp sickle in his hand. 15  And another angel came out of the temple, calling with a loud voice to him who sat upon the cloud, "Put in your sickle, and reap, for the hour to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is fully ripe." 16  So he who sat upon the cloud swung his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped. 17  And another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. 18  Then another angel came out from the altar, the angel who has power over fire, and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, "Put in your sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for its grapes are ripe." 19  So the angel swung his sickle on the earth and gathered the vintage of the earth, and threw it into the great wine press of the wrath of God;

Again the structure is repeated: four angels first giving the general announcements and three more serious ones that speak of the harvest, reap the good and the bad. This structure is unique to our land.

 

Last structure of seven angels (with bowls):

 

These angels speak of punishment or of consequence, rather, of the choice of the different creatures of God, separated as always in types according to their sin, and from before the beginning of time (from heaven). In fact, they correspond exactly with the first angels, those of the trumpets; They announced what was happening and here only describes the consequence or punishment of what happened.

Rev 16:1  Then I heard a loud voice from the temple telling the seven angels, "Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God." 2  So the first angel went and poured his bowl on the earth, and foul and evil sores came upon the men who bore the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. 3  The second angel poured his bowl into the sea, and it became like the blood of a dead man, and every living thing died that was in the sea. 4  The third angel poured his bowl into the rivers and the fountains of water, and they became blood. 5  And I heard the angel of water say, "Just art thou in these thy judgments, thou who art and wast, O Holy One. 6  For men have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink. It is their due!" 7  And I heard the altar cry, "Yea, Lord God the Almighty, true and just are thy judgments!" 8  The fourth angel poured his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch men with fire; 9  men were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues, and they did not repent and give him glory. 10  The fifth angel poured his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was in darkness; men gnawed their tongues in anguish 11  and cursed the God of heaven for their pain and sores, and did not repent of their deeds. 12  The sixth angel poured his bowl on the great river Euphra'tes, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east. 13  And I saw, issuing from the mouth of the dragon and from the mouth of the beast and from the mouth of the false prophet, three foul spirits like frogs; 14  for they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty. 15  ("Lo, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is he who is awake, keeping his garments that he may not go naked and be seen exposed!") 16  And they assembled them at the place which is called in Hebrew Armaged'don. 17  The seventh angel poured his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, "It is done!" 18  And there were flashes of lightning, voices, peals of thunder, and a great earthquake such as had never been since men were on the earth, so great was that earthquake. 19  The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered great Babylon, to make her drain the cup of the fury of his wrath. 20  And every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found;

The first bowl. It produces malignant ulcers. Remember: fallen angels can no longer retain the Essence of God, nor even maintain their person, they lose their freedom and they only hate.

The second bowl. It falls on the sea (salty or dirty, not pure water). The Eves and also the fallen angels (who also lost the person we have seen in the first cup); This coincides with the second trumpet.

The third bowl. It falls on fresh water. On the adams, they did not covet, but emptied themselves out of love for the Eve. He then refers to justice. For it is indeed an act of justice that the Adams should empty themselves also, even if they did not covet or within them contain "salt" that would prevent them from being the pure Spirit. It is the infidelity that in the end is unloving toward God that empties them.

The fourth bowl. It speaks of God. It is the moment when God is present. He "hits" the table. As a result will separate the rebels that is seen in the fifth cup.

The fifth bowl. It goes on the throne of the beast and turns it into darkness. Well, this is the place we went before the earth (close to God but not in God). Then we were all expatriates there (Cain and Abel) and everything was repeated. Darkness surely refers to the Tower of Babel and Noah. To the hiding of God.

The sixth bowl. Pour the cup on the Euphrates to give way to the kings of the East. This is the period in our land. Dry the Euphrates, it can refer to that disappearance of God between us; Which gives us freedom and allows some to return to Him without fears or slavery. The kings of the east would be these: people who overcome death (thanks to Jesus) and from the east because we are new creatures, new kings or reborn (if you want), like the sun that comes from the east. New Nature.

The seventh bowl. This is the real end of our world. The Great City speaks of all of us, all of us who have fallen here; Is separated into three parts that will surely be the demons, the eves and the Adams. Let's say it's the harvest and separation of good and bad. Then he says that he will remember also to give the wine of the rage to the Great Babylon.

 

The Great Babylon.

 

As for Great Babylon, although it is explained later by an angel who is Rome, (I believe; the city of the seven hills), for me it also refers to all those who on earth do evil. That is: The demons, the Eves, but also the Adams who have not followed God. It says:

Rev 18:2  And he called out with a mighty voice, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! It has become a dwelling place of demons, a haunt of every foul spirit, a haunt of every foul and hateful bird; 3  for all nations have drunk the wine of her impure passion, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich with the wealth of her wantonness." 4  Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues;

Here the birds refer as always to the Adams that can, or in this case could have been, lifted from the world; see Judaism,Noah p.141. Of course, we all live in the world with the Great Babylon, so says, come out of her my people.

Rev 18:8  so shall her plagues come in a single day, pestilence and mourning and famine, and she shall be burned with fire; for mighty is the Lord God who judges her."

Rev 18:21  Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, "So shall Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence, and shall be found no more;

It is worth mentioning that after all, the end of time comes for Great Babylon in just one day. That is, perhaps when the end of the world comes, it will be quick. Which contrasts with what we thought earlier about the vast prophecy of the apocalypse.

 

 

The end of the Apocalypse.

 

Regarding the end is quite clear, the reward of those who get it. Although later he says that Satan will be locked up for a thousand years and then he will be allowed to go out to fight one last time against the Beloved City and he will be destroyed. This means that, after the destruction of the world, God will not immediately break the time, but will wait a thousand years. And how could it be otherwise? As I maintain, purgatory is the time it takes a soul, when its body dies, to reach the limit of the universe; According to the Holy Spirit that the soul possesses, it will rise in more or less time, or if it does not have, it will go down. If it broke the world and at the same time the time, what would happen to those who have not been purged? Or with those who were alive at the time? Would he recover them directly? Maybe that would not be too fair for those who died thousands of years earlier and waited until they reached the edge of the universe (where that one grows, filling the "God space").

Thus, after the thousand years, he will break the time (the vibrating sword), which is that which limits Satan, and then again he will want to fight against the Beloved City, against the angels and those who washed his soul with the blood of Christ. And it will definitely be destroyed because it can no longer use the Adams as a shield. We will not be kidnapped by him anymore.

The last two, chapters 21 and 22, speak clearly of heaven, or of our new heaven.

Well, as always, a lot escapes me, but here the shots go.

As a last note, I wonder if in heaven, besides those types of "beings" according to the betrayal (faithful angels, Adams, Eves, Demons), we were initially of seven different shapes or sizes. I know that God provides what is necessary for our salvation, hence the different religions of which I speak in the next point, and this comes from what we were in heaven. We are not born arbitrarily in a Christian or Muslim nation or Taoist ... In addition, it makes many references always to 7 diadems, 7 heads that seem to allude to seven (types, towns, supports, sizes or whatever). Even the 7 hills maybe God put them to Rome also to give a "dual" meaning to all this. If they were 7 types of beings, Satan who is called several times "the eighth", would also be part of one of the 7 groups, but mentioned separately for being the trigger. Just as traditional Chinese medicine and our medicine cure man, these 7 religions walk alongside the same Love, molding it in a particular way. It is no coincidence that in the Promised Land, symbol of heaven, there are also 7 peoples? (beyond the seven deadly sins represented by these peoples, see Judaism.

 

 

 

 

 

Who were the 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse

 

·      The Seven Spirits of God, the Twenty-four Elders

 

All right, I think what was said in the previous point about the seven seals is quite clear from this perspective. Now, I’ll go further and venture into the seven Spirits and the twenty-four Elders.

 

Revelation 4:2-5

With that, I fell into ecstasy and I saw a throne standing in heaven, and the One who was sitting on the throne,

and the One sitting there looked like a diamond and a ruby. There was a rainbow encircling the throne, and this looked like an emerald.

Round the throne in a circle were twenty-four thrones, and on them twenty-four elders sitting, dressed in white robes with golden crowns on their heads.

Flashes of lightning were coming from the throne, and the sound of peals of thunder, and in front of the throne there were seven flaming lamps burning, the seven Spirits of God.

 

Think of the seven flaming lamps. They have the same fire or Spirit but separated by wooden sticks, which is where they are lit. After what was said about the different faiths, knowing that Jesus makes us ALL capable of receiving the Spirit again, let’s imagine that these lamps are the different religions that have been shown or given the Spirit. Am I saying they’re all the same? No. They’re different sticks and not all burn in the same way. In fact, in symbolizing religions, something that I think is clear here, Chapters 2 and 3 of Revelation where Jesus Christ sends a message to the 7 Churches of Asia, they are really directed towards these 7 “peoples of God = Churches” or religions . And these 7 messages would be distinguishing the 7 religions, in that it says good and bad things about each. I have not been able to identify them based on these verses, but I think someone who knows the Bible and the history of other cultures could; assuming, of course, that this hypothesis is correct, which fits precisely with everything said above.

 

The truth is that, taking it literally, without theories, these 7 Churches are very close to each other, in western Turkey (curiously in the center of the world map, center of religions), and it would be very difficult to understand the very different judgments made for each of them. More so if we see that for one of them (Pergamum), Jesus says: I know where you live – in the place where Satan is enthroned.

 

Revelation 2:1-7

''Write to the angel of the church in Ephesus and say, "Here is the message of the one who holds the seven stars in his right hand and who lives among the seven golden lamp-stands:

I know your activities, your hard work and your perseverance. I know you cannot stand wicked people, and how you put to the test those who were self-styled apostles, and found them false.

I know too that you have perseverance, and have suffered for my name without growing tired.

Nevertheless, I have this complaint to make: you have less love now than formerly.

Think where you were before you fell; repent, and behave as you did at first, or else, if you will not repent, I shall come to you and take your lamp-stand from its place.

It is in your favour, nevertheless, that you loathe as I do the way the Nicolaitans are behaving.

Let anyone who can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches: those who prove victorious I will feed from the tree of life set in God's paradise."

 

Revelation 2:8-11

 'Write to the angel of the church in Smyrna and say, "Here is the message of the First and the Last, who was dead and has come to life again:

I know your hardships and your poverty, and -- though you are rich -- the slander of the people who falsely claim to be Jews but are really members of the synagogue of Satan.

Do not be afraid of the sufferings that are coming to you. Look, the devil will send some of you to prison to put you to the test, and you must face hardship for ten days. Even if you have to die, keep faithful, and I will give you the crown of life for your prize.

Let anyone who can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches: for those who prove victorious will come to no harm from the second death."

 

Revelation 2:12-17

 'Write to the angel of the church in Pergamum and say, "Here is the message of the one who has the sharp sword, double-edged:

I know where you live, in the place where Satan is enthroned, and that you still hold firmly to my name, and did not disown your faith in me even when my faithful witness, Antipas, was killed among you, where Satan lives.

"Nevertheless, I have one or two charges against you: some of you are followers of Balaam, who taught Balak to set a trap for the Israelites so that they committed adultery by eating food that had been sacrificed to idols;

and among you too there are some also who follow the teaching of the Nicolaitans.

So repent, or I shall soon come to you and attack these people with the sword out of my mouth.

Let anyone who can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches: to those who prove victorious I will give some hidden manna and a white stone, with a new name written on it, known only to the person who receives it."

 

Revelation 2:18-29

'Write to the angel of the church in Thyatira and say, "Here is the message of the Son of God who has eyes like a burning flame and feet like burnished bronze:

I know your activities, your love, your faith, your service and your perseverance, and I know how you are still making progress.

Nevertheless, I have a complaint to make: you tolerate the woman Jezebel who claims to be a prophetess, and by her teaching she is luring my servants away to commit the adultery of eating food which has been sacrificed to idols.

I have given her time to repent but she is not willing to repent of her adulterous life.

Look, I am consigning her to a bed of pain, and all her partners in adultery to great hardship, unless they repent of their practices;

and I will see that her children die, so that all the churches realise that it is I who test motives and thoughts and repay you as your deeds deserve.

But on the rest of you in Thyatira, all of you who have not accepted this teaching or learnt the deep secrets of Satan, as they are called, I am not laying any other burden;

but hold on firmly to what you already have until I come.

To anyone who proves victorious, and keeps working for me until the end, I will give the authority over the nations

which I myself have been given by my Father, to rule them with an iron sceptre and shatter them like so many pots.

And I will give such a person the Morning Star.

Let anyone who can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches."

 

Revelation 3:1-6

'Write to the angel of the church in Sardis and say, "Here is the message of the one who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars: I know about your behaviour: how you are reputed to be alive and yet are dead.

Wake up; put some resolve into what little vigour you have left: it is dying fast. So far I have failed to notice anything in your behaviour that my God could possibly call perfect;

remember how you first heard the message. Hold on to that. Repent! If you do not wake up, I shall come to you like a thief, and you will have no idea at what hour I shall come upon you.

There are a few in Sardis, it is true, who have kept their robes unstained, and they are fit to come with me, dressed in white.

Anyone who proves victorious will be dressed, like these, in white robes; I shall not blot that name out of the book of life, but acknowledge it in the presence of my Father and his angels.

Let anyone who can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches."

 

Revelation 3:7-13

'Write to the angel of the church in Philadelphia and say, "Here is the message of the holy and true one who has the key of David, so that when he opens, no one will close, and when he closes, no one will open:

I know about your activities. Look, I have opened in front of you a door that no one will be able to close -- and I know that though you are not very strong, you have kept my commandments and not disowned my name.

Look, I am going to make the synagogue of Satan -- those who falsely claim to be Jews, but are liars, because they are no such thing -- I will make them come and fall at your feet and recognize that I have loved you.

Because you have kept my commandment to persevere, I will keep you safe in the time of trial which is coming for the whole world, to put the people of the world to the test.

I am coming soon: hold firmly to what you already have, and let no one take your victor's crown away from you.

Anyone who proves victorious I will make into a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, and it will stay there for ever; I will inscribe on it the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which is coming down from my God in heaven, and my own new name as well.

Let anyone who can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches."

 

Revelation 3:14-22

'Write to the angel of the church in Laodicea and say, "Here is the message of the Amen, the trustworthy, the true witness, the Principle of God's creation:

I know about your activities: how you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were one or the other,

but since you are neither hot nor cold, but only lukewarm, I will spit you out of my mouth.

You say to yourself: I am rich, I have made a fortune and have everything I want, never realising that you are wretchedly and pitiably poor, and blind and naked too.

I warn you, buy from me the gold that has been tested in the fire to make you truly rich, and white robes to clothe you and hide your shameful nakedness, and ointment to put on your eyes to enable you to see.

I reprove and train those whom I love: so repent in real earnest.

Look, I am standing at the door, knocking. If one of you hears me calling and opens the door, I will come in to share a meal at that person's side.

21 Anyone who proves victorious I will allow to share my throne, just as I have myself overcome and have taken my seat with my Father on his throne.

Let anyone who can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches." '

 

As I said, I am not able to identify these possible religions, I couldn’t even say what those seven are (I can imagine maybe about five). What I have seen are different elements that some messages have in common:

o    In all of them, Jesus Christ is identified with a title or characteristic that has to do with the message that follows. E.g.: “Here is the message of the First and the Last, who was dead and has come to life again”, or “Here is the message of the one who has the sharp sword, double-edged”

 

o    Some (two of them) say they received or kept “my commandments/the message” (Philadelphia and Sardis).  To others, it speaks of qualities that they have or had related to love: charity, faith, patience, loyalty to “my name” tribulation or suffering for their cause.

 

o    In addition, two of the churches actually receive reproach from Jesus (Sardis and Laodicea) and two that receive approval (Smyrna and Philadelphia). There are two others which receive both approval and reproach (Pergamum and Thyatira). In both, his reproach is: deceiving my servants (or supporting someone who does so or their doctrine) so that they commit the adultery of eating food which has been sacrificed to idols.   And the last one (the first in order, Ephesus) which is reproached for having lost the love they had before.

 

o    In addition, there is another element: “of the people who falsely claim to be Jews but are really members of the synagogue of Satan.” Today, these could be those who falsely call themselves Muslims but are driven by hatred, (misnamed jihadists…). Many cultures have killed in the name of God, including Christians with the Inquisition (although a lot of dark legends have been invented with movies, etc.). There are also those who, while they do not kill in God’s name, come to power in a party that calls itself Christian and then are able to invade a country for its wealth. I don’t know, they all seem to be part of the same thing.

 

Okay, we have come to see this meaning of Revelation through logic, but what if this book also clarifies new meanings of the Word of God? Not only the idea that we were God’s wishes before everything, which it seems that it does indeed affirm this (the living creatures). Perhaps Revelation (dark and impenetrable for centuries), the book that closes the Bible, is a key that allows us to interpret other passages from the Scriptures, as if it were an encryption key that unravels or decodes what was supposed to remain hidden from our understanding until a particular moment.

It seems clear that when it talks about the church, it does so in a more or less encrypted way: “Let anyone who can hear, listen”, the different prefaces for each church... And why use this convoluted language, assuming it was addressed to churches that were contemporary at that time? Because, as with all of Revelation (the first 8 chapters especially), it was written for today, for the final stretch of time, in my opinion. And God only wanted it to be clarified today. This “John”, the apostle when he was older, wrote this to the 7 “religions” of today (I know that 7 is a symbolic number, but not here as I believe I mentioned). And he did: “Write down in a book all that you see, and send it to the seven churches”. It is a message from God put in time for all mankind.

And now that we know our origin, isn’t it all easier? It’s not the same as suddenly appearing at a bus stop without knowing where you came from and where you are going to stop, for that’s what they say life is. Knowing our origin, everything becomes clear; suddenly we know the map of all the bus routes. We’re not like that lost and crying little boy. We become aware of ourselves, and especially of God, our source and origin of life. We’ve tracked down our lost being now, and such is what was lost that our goal should be nothing less than saintliness. Love for love’s sake. Not loving or “doing” because you have to, because of moralizing, but truly loving. Because by loving, all the commandments, all mercy, and all hospitality are fulfilled; and justice is also fulfilled in the end, because if you have children all you expect is that they love each other, and if one of them fights and you will apply your justice, because you don’t want them to hit each other. This is how God is with all of us, justice belongs to Him and all we have to do is love, and any justice we apply in order to live together in the world must be founded in that love. Ultimately, by loving, that which we want for ourselves is fulfilled, and there, in loving, is where we find happiness – not in being loved. If a king was greatly loved by his subjects, but his leadership and command only led to misfortunes and tragedies for his people, he would be unhappy (provided he is a righteous man, a son of God, of course).

God doesn’t need anything, not even for us to love Him, for God is Love. He gives, He does not need. This is why we also find our being and happiness in love, because we were originally made in His image and likeness. Today, our dying person is tenuously held in the world by our bodies, waiting to be again, to be filled with God again.

And isn’t it abundantly clear? Hasn’t the Bible told us that it doesn’t matter what sacrifices you make, if you sell your possessions and give them to the poor, if you die a martyr, that if you don’t have love, you are nothing? And this being so, all that’s missing is saying: Hey you, oblivious! Open your eyes! Religions are paths where we find love; the rules themselves don’t matter if you don’t love, and conversely, by loving, everything is regulated. Love erases those strict lanes makes us all brothers in the assurance that in loving one another we are doing the will of God, in the assurance that we are not wrong. Isn’t God infinitely merciful? And as a parent, what do you teach your child? Or what does the creator teach his creation? To be like their neighbor? No – to be like himself (just like man tries to make automatons that are like him – artificial intelligence). We are called to Love, Father of mercy, compassion, hospitality...

It doesn’t seem fitting then, considering the infinite mercy of God, to have taken the opportunity from non-Christians to exercise their freedom in what matters: consciously choosing God (Love, giving oneself and loving) over the world and its prince, the devil (hatred, selfishness and taking for oneself). Thus, making certain religions valid as tools to reach God. I arrive to this thought from logic a well, because in the same way, using common sense, it seems very difficult for the epitome of Justice to count the sins of our ancestors against us, being free and independent of them. We do have this inheritance, but from what we ourselves were in heaven.

 

 

Now imagine the twenty-four Elders. It says they are sitting on surrounding thrones, in other translations it says in seats. Anyway, this isn’t important for us to think that maybe these twenty-four symbolize twenty-four great prophets sent to these seven nations. As we know, before the arrival of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit could not abide in man because of our sin, our “broken” soul. What if those great prophets were pure or enlightened men somehow? Set apart in this vision and sent to different nations throughout history, before or after Jesus Christ. As elders, they represent men of wisdom... plus, they wear crowns like Jesus Christ in the “image” of the 7 seals, as if to mean that they were victorious, pure.

Perhaps God has given us Revelation to join all those lamps in a single fire of love before the end of the world. I know that God, through Jesus Christ, gives all men the opportunity to be saved, and that love is the key to everything. I know that Christ is Love manifest as man, and he is the door, but perhaps without knowing Christ Man, others may know the Love of Christ, the Love of God, and be filled with the Spirit, because thanks to Christ we are potential wishes of God, now as men. According to these messages, there would be seven religions more or less close to him, but none of them, not even the most distant, gives up on Jesus Christ. In our Freedom to choose him is our salvation. Religions show the right direction, but a direction takes up an entire horizon; the door is love. And we Christians are told this, too.

 

1 Corinthians 13:1-3

Though I command languages both human and angelic -- if I speak without love, I am no more than a gong booming or a cymbal clashing.

And though I have the power of prophecy, to penetrate all mysteries and knowledge, and though I have all the faith necessary to move mountains -- if I am without love, I am nothing.

Though I should give away to the poor all that I possess, and even give up my body to be burned -- if I am without love, it will do me no good whatever.

 

Or without going any further, aren’t all the commandments of God’s law contained in these two?

 

You shall love God above all things and love your neighbor as yourself.

 

As we receive the Old Testament from the prophets, I equate this to other religions sent by other prophets. I do not devalue it, on the contrary; I equate them all in the power of salvation, but I know that none of them, not even ours, is valid without love, and I know that all have been given thanks to Jesus Christ, who has made our nature worthy. There would not have been any salvation effort for men without Christ; in fact, there wouldn’t have been either men or angels. He opens the seven seals, the existence of all God’s creation.

As I said, I’m not here to convert any believer of another religion to our own religion; these earthly paths were given to us by God of His own will to lead us in the right direction, but the paths end at a vast horizon pointed to by that direction, and the last section, which is reaching the door, we should traverse looking upwards, toward the star of Love that has risen and shows us the way.

It would be interesting to see the rest of the essay to verify that everything stated in this point is still repeated in spaces of time over thousands of years.

 

 

Daniel 8:1-17  In the third year of the reign of King Belshaz'zar a vision appeared to me, Daniel, after that which appeared to me at the first.  2  And I saw in the vision; and when I saw, I was in Susa the capital, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw in the vision, and I was at the river U'lai.  3  I raised my eyes and saw, and behold, a ram standing on the bank of the river. It had two horns; and both horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last.  4  I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward; no beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue from his power; he did as he pleased and magnified himself.  5  As I was considering, behold, a he-goat came from the west across the face of the whole earth, without touching the ground; and the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes.  6  He came to the ram with the two horns, which I had seen standing on the bank of the river, and he ran at him in his mighty wrath.  7  I saw him come close to the ram, and he was enraged against him and struck the ram and broke his two horns; and the ram had no power to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled upon him; and there was no one who could rescue the ram from his power.  8  Then the he-goat magnified himself exceedingly; but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.  9  Out of one of them came forth a little horn, which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land.  10  It grew great, even to the host of heaven; and some of the host of the stars it cast down to the ground, and trampled upon them.  11  It magnified itself, even up to the Prince of the host; and the continual burnt offering was taken away from him, and the place of his sanctuary was overthrown.  12  And the host was given over to it together with the continual burnt offering through transgression; and truth was cast down to the ground, and the horn acted and prospered.  13  Then I heard a holy one speaking; and another holy one said to the one that spoke, "For how long is the vision concerning the continual burnt offering, the transgression that makes desolate, and the giving over of the sanctuary and host to be trampled under foot?"  14  And he said to him, "For two thousand and three hundred evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary shall be restored to its rightful state."  15  When I, Daniel, had seen the vision, I sought to understand it; and behold, there stood before me one having the appearance of a man.  16  And I heard a man's voice between the banks of the U'lai, and it called, "Gabriel, make this man understand the vision."  17  So he came near where I stood; and when he came, I was frightened and fell upon my face. But he said to me, "Understand, O son of man, that the vision is for the time of the end."

 

 

 

This prophecy, beyond the interpretation given to it later with respect to the earth in the identification of the ram and goat (Daniel 8:18...), has a clear interpretation from heaven. In addition, it corresponds to the following predictions of the end of the world, in Daniel's own sealed prophecy (12:1-13) and in Revelation (11:1-13). Let's examine these three prophecies and see what they have in common.

The Interpretation from heaven is this:

The two-horned ram is Adam and Eve. There is differentiation between them (the two tall, but one taller than the other and also the highest raised the last; the proudest the humblest...?), which surely refers to either the difference of later guilt or to how we were created complementarily in the image of the Trinity, Adam-Eve-Spirit.

He did what he wanted and dominated means that we were given the freedom to do what we wanted and we went against the west, north, and south, but not against the east which represents God 8.4 (where the Sun rises). Now the goat comes from the west (death, sunset), attacks the ram and breaks its two horns 8.7. The devil tempts Adam and Eve. Through Eve who believes him, Adam falls who 'loves' her (the highest one raises the last one). He knocked them down on the ground. The goat became very big, because the devil joined many with him. Let us remember that this is represented here as a magnificent horn in the goat. This is Luz Bella, beautiful as it was 8.8. It says that when it was stronger it broke and four others oriented to the 4 cardinal points emerged. These cardinal points represent the earth. The devil and his own have been defeated when God has said enough. But from his lost situation (a smaller horn of one of those four), he challenges God (he grows towards the East and the land of Splendor 8,9). This is the moment of his blackmail that we have already commented: "If you kill me, kill them also, who were traitors likewise", although some did not get up or were led back before the final battle (Eve), and others did it out of love, not out of hatred or greed (Adams). This call to justice, which God cannot ignore because He is the One who Is, causes all the Adams and Eves to fall together with the most traitors; these are the stars that fall, since we were angels (which sounds bad) and described here as stars 8,10. Note that the blow to the ram speaks of the temptation into which we fell (Eve and Adam), this fall of the stars, of us, refers to the consequence or result of that blow, after blackmail. See also that the ram with two horns, represents that our destiny (Adam-Eve) is united, is the same and besides that those horns are followed by a whole body (a people of Adam, evas; all of us men later); just as a whole body follows the horn of the goat of a horn (Satan and his fallen angels).

It is the appeal to justice that makes us fall with the devil, not in itself the sin of the Adams that was for love and could have been forgiven.

The rebellion in the sky was of very important magnitudes, it says that 1/3 of the stars fell in the apocalypse Apo 8,12. He came to God (head of the army), for He alone will find a way to save us by sacrificing His Son. It suppressed the perpetual sacrifice, it could be confused in our world with taking away the Eucharist, but it does not refer to that because in addition for that the Church would have to be destroyed, something that we know cannot happen because Jesus Christ said it. Perpetual sacrifice (he suppressed) refers to God's love for us, which does not cease as such, but if the gift of the Holy Spirit is cut off, because we could no longer contain it; moreover, it refers to our love for Him. When I say that I sacrifice myself for my children to take them to extracurricular activities every other day, I am not speaking of a bloody sacrifice but of an act of love for them, a continuous sacrifice. Let us remember that love is giving. 

In the 8,12, it says they gave him the army, instead of the sacrifice he established iniquity and threw the truth to the ground, then on the earth, Satan is in charge of the army of the fallen, the demons, and he does nothing but deceive us to kill us.

13 How long will the vision last: the perpetual sacrifice, the desolate iniquity, the sanctuary, and the army trampled underfoot? 14 The other answered, Two thousand three hundred (2300) evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be rehabilitated.

Here is a discrepancy with the time that Daniel himself gives 1290 days and Revelation 1260 days. The latter refers to the same time and has an explanation 1290 and 1260, but why does it say 2300, that is, 1010 more days? This time is not the time from a moment of our earth to the end of the world. It is the time from the time we fell from heaven (suppressed the perpetual sacrifice) until the end of time and here it also includes when the sanctuary will be rehabilitated. According to the apocalypse (Rev 20:2), once the world is destroyed the demon will remain immobilized for 1000 years and then attack again the camp of the saints and the beloved city (heaven), and then it will finally be destroyed. I have already explained why this is in   The end of the Apocalypse. p.  191: 1000 years of purgatory for those who die near the end of the world and need that purging (surely for many of us); if God were to break time now, wouldn't it be unjust for those who need purging not to have it when so many others have suffered it? To add 1010 to the whole period from the betrayal of heaven to the restoration of the sanctuary I think it refers to those 1000 years of waiting with satan immobilized until the last battle begins and perhaps those 10 at the time when the demons are definitively ended. Of course, it makes no sense for Daniel himself to put 1290 in one place and 2300 in another, except for this difference: to re-establish the Sanctuary, which in the other prophecy does not appear.

 

Thus, as I said, this figure does not tell us about a period of time that we can add to something that is going to happen and from there we can deduce what is the date of the end of the world, because it is a global time that begins in heaven nothing less.

But:

16 ... Gabriel, explain the vision to him. 17 He came to me, and when he came, I fell on my face in fear. He said to me, "Man, you must understand that the vision refers to the end time."

 

The resolution of this prophecy does tell us that we are already in the end time.

 

 

 


 

Now the equivalence of the Apocalypse that uses the same numbers:

 

Apocalipsis 11:1-13  Then I was given a measuring rod like a staff, and I was told: "Rise and measure the temple of God and the altar and those who worship there,  2  but do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations, and they will trample over the holy city for forty-two months.  3  And I will grant my two witnesses power to prophesy for one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth."  4  These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands which stand before the Lord of the earth.  5  And if any one would harm them, fire pours out from their mouth and consumes their foes; if any one would harm them, thus he is doomed to be killed.  6  They have power to shut the sky, that no rain may fall during the days of their prophesying, and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood, and to smite the earth with every plague, as often as they desire.  7  And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends from the bottomless pit will make war upon them and conquer them and kill them,  8  and their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which is allegorically called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was crucified.  9  For three days and a half men from the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations gaze at their dead bodies and refuse to let them be placed in a tomb,  10  and those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and make merry and exchange presents, because these two prophets had been a torment to those who dwell on the earth.  11  But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood up on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them.  12  Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up hither!" And in the sight of their foes they went up to heaven in a cloud.  13  And at that hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell; seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.

 

In 11.1 it begins by measuring the Sanctuary of God and the altar, but does not measure the outside that has been given to the Gentiles. We, the fallen Adams-vas, are the outside, the Gentiles, are the demons. They will trample on us for 42 months. Again 42 months is equal to 1260 days, the same as 3.5 (years) which will be used later also here. This, moreover, tells us that what is said in these verses, refers to us, to the fallen ones.

 

3.5 years x 12 months = 42 months, x 30 days = 1260 days

 

It is important to understand what these periods are. They are equal periods, but taken or grouped in different ways; months, days, years. And the groupings change according to prophecy (here are 3.5 days, in another, times), which tells us that time itself is not important, but the relationship of equivalence between these numbers: 3.5; 42; 1260. In Daniel's sealed prophecy, which I analyze after this, it says that everything will be fulfilled when "One time, two times and half a time pass, and all these things will be fulfilled when the breaking of the strength of the holy people is over”. This speaks to us, of the places we have passed through, of our periods of life or critical moments in our history from heaven: in heaven (3,5); after the betrayal we were not yet on earth (42, Cain, Abel, we lived hundreds of years, we spoke with God...); on earth before the cross (1260, we cannot retain the Spirit, we no longer see God or speak to him directly, and we live at most 120 years, Gen 6:3. See logically p.   213); and after the cross (1290, we can retain the Holy Spirit).  It also speaks to us of the equivalence in ourselves in these periods of life: in heaven with our person and freedom the same as on earth, but with different natures.  It is a way of saying that our life in which we put everything at stake, took place in different periods of time in size, but equal in importance; that is, the betrayal of heaven was carried out by all humanity (before being men) at the same time, in a short space of 'time'. The moment when our betrayal was confirmed, when we were with God, but not in God, was another time, and finally on earth, which we came to for generations, which extends for longer. But at the same time they have the same value, because they are parts of our history in which our Life or death is decided. The last half time, perhaps, comes to tell us that it is in reference to the penultimate that also occurs on earth (from the beginning of our history of salvation, Abraham, or other origin, to the passion).

In any case, the use of these related numbers is also a way of talking about one of the periods (sky, middle, earth) and to include, in an ambiguous or hidden way, others who could have shared the same circumstance. For example, then follow:

2 The outer court of the Sanctuary, leave it aside, do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles, who will trample on the Holy City 42 months.  3 But I will make my two witnesses prophesy for 1260 days, covered with sackcloth.

The number 42, tells us of the 2nd period The outer courtyard of the Shrine has been handed over. We, when we had already been captured, and we were not yet on earth.

The two witnesses are the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ (two candlesticks and two olive trees), both sources of light and part of the tree that gives oil. On earth, no one sees God the Father, but we can feel the Holy Spirit and Christ who also became man. The Gentiles are the demons and perhaps the Eve. Nevertheless, although that 1260 also refers to the period of the earth or to everything in general, in these verses they refer specifically to the period of heaven, because in heaven also the 'witnesses' give testimony. When what is said is fulfilled in both places, it seems to use the greater number. He says, "They have power to shut heaven so that it does not rain," so that those who have risen up do not receive the Holy Spirit or the water of life (this is also given on earth). He's talking about the rebellion of heaven, so go on:  

7 But when they have finished testifying, the Beast that arises from the Abyss will make war against them, will overcome them, and will kill them.

It says that, for us, the Holy Spirit will be dead and we will be separated from the tree, that is to say, we will be empty by the action of the Beast, who after being defeated (comes out of the abyss) by the action of these two witnesses (finished giving testimony), will make his blackmail using justice, and the Beast will not be expelled yet. He will overcome them and kill them refers to the Spirit and brotherhood in Christ that we lost in heaven, not them in themselves, for they were (and are now) witnesses of God in us.

8 And their dead bodies, in the square of the Great City, which is symbolically called Sodom or Egypt, there where also their Lord was crucified.  9 And the people of the peoples, races, tongues, and nations, shall behold their dead bodies three and a half days: it is not lawful to bury their dead bodies.

This, which is a little ambiguous, because it could also refer to the world, refers more to heaven (3'5); during this time we (beings without Life, without the Holy Spirit now) remain outside the tree, outside of God, but next to God still, exposed in "the great city". It says "it is called Sodom or Egypt", Sodom as a representation of sin and Egypt as a representation of the slavery of that sin, of having submitted ourselves to Satan; "where also his Lord was crucified", it could refer to the world as it said, but I believe it refers to the very sin in which we have fallen into heaven. It is in that sin (or sinful nature) that the Lord will enter to save us on the Cross. It is a decision that was made in heaven. That offer or acceptance by which the world will later be created.

Thus, those corpses are ourselves and the demons without Life, with the lack of Spirit, and of Christ. It is not allowed to bury the corpses', it tells us that not only us, but also not the demons (the most rebellious) although already defeated, they can be buried; God does not destroy them to, using them, recover us in full justice.

10 The inhabitants of the earth rejoice and rejoice because of them, and exchange gifts, because these two prophets had tormented the inhabitants of the earth. We are still in the same period. These 'inhabitants of the earth', I believe, refer above all to demons, the wicked and many Eves, who after blackmail feel safe, united to our destiny or who only have ears for the world and discard the idea of hell. On earth, the Spirit and Christ (before His arrival and passion), are not visible, demons are at ease without strong enemies.

11 But after three and a half days, a breath of life from God entered them and they stood up, and a great terror took hold of those who beheld them. 

Now we change the period, from heaven (3'5) the decision of the cross is made; the general period of heaven has already passed ("after three and a half days"); now he speaks of our time on earth (he does not specify which, although he speaks of the passion, end of a period, beginning of the last means), the Spirit returns to us, thanks to Christ who comes as man and as I say, validates us in the passion. God opens the red sea, cuts the chains that united us to the pharaoh and great terror seized the demons, since they are left without a hostage, without a shield. The Eve, however, will remain deaf, so that their destiny, once separated from that of the Adams, is uncertain. At that time, it refers to the same passion: there was a violent earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed, 7000 people perished. Well, this is what happened at the beginning of this last (middle) period: it speaks of the fulfillment of the passion (although it can also speak of how the demons fell after the decision in heaven of the cross, the offering or acceptance of Jesus). I don't know if there was an earthquake then in Jerusalem or speaks figuratively, I think there are several places in the Bible that say so. Anyway, except that 7000 was a symbolic number (which would tell us more that this happened in heaven, near God), it does not seem much compared to all of humanity, nor a tenth of the city. Later in the book of Revelation it speaks of the end of the world as already explained in this point 7, but not here. This part of the prophecy of Revelation speaks to us of something much more important, of passion as the end of the periods that encompass our betrayal and death, which encompasses our history from the betrayal from heaven to our rescue. Like Daniel's prophecies, it speaks of these particular periods, but also groups them together; that's why it uses the same numbers, though changed in units or how they are grouped.

The scriptures, however, speak to us consciously ambiguously to show this double information of heaven and earth. In these verses, starting from verse 8, we could place ourselves on the earth that is symbolically called Sodom or Egypt with the same meaning that I have already described and also "where the Lord was crucified", referring again to the earth (not to the offering of Jesus in heaven). This verse 8 would have been a consequence of the previous one: of Satan's blackmail, which causes all of us, including the Adam, to fall to this earth.

Continuing from this perspective, in 10, "inhabitants of the earth" would be likewise the demons who, while passion is not given, are at ease because they remain parapetted behind their hostages, the Adams. In the 11th exegesis would be the same, except that the change of period would have been from the 3rd time (from the beginning on earth to the passion) to the beginning of the last half time (from the passion to the end of the world). I believe that this is the appropriate vision, however, in this verse, as in previous ones, but otherwise we could start verse 11 also in heaven, if we consider that "breath of life" as the decision to take the cross of Jesus that was given in heaven.

The important thing is finally to know how to distinguish that these stages have occurred in our history; it is not the main thing to concretize them exactly, because, in addition, as I have been tiringly insisting, much has been intentionally written in an ambiguous way or to show that duality or double information of our different stages. All this is confirmed in the exegesis of A great sign appeared in the sky (Rev 12:1-5) p.  184.

3.5 years x 12 months = 42 months, x 30 days = 1260 days

Equivalent numbers grouped differently.

1260/365 = 3.452 years ~ 3.5.

1290/365 = 3.53 years ~ 3.5.

3,5

It speaks of the first period, of our betrayal in heaven, or of what happened there, or of what began there.

42

It speaks of the 2nd period, close to God, but not in God (Cain and Abel).

1260

Third Period. On Earth even passion (we cannot retain the Spirit).  

1290

Last half period. From passion to the end of the world.

1335

Judgment or Cast for the saved. 1335/365=3,65 (Justice in a Number). It divides between the days of a year, the hundredth part of a year for each day.

2300

End of the Universe. City of God reconstructed. Add 1000 years of purgatory for those who need it from the last to live in the world, until the restoration of the Sanctuary (Revelation 20,2 see p. PAGEREF _Ref530067798 \h 191).

 

 

 

Now the second part of Daniel 8; the sealed prophecy, Daniel 12.

 

Daniel 12:1-13  "At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time; but at that time your people shall be delivered, every one whose name shall be found written in the book.  2  And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.  3  And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.  4  But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase."  5  Then I Daniel looked, and behold, two others stood, one on this bank of the stream and one on that bank of the stream.  6  And I said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, "How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?"  7  The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven; and I heard him swear by him who lives for ever that it would be for a time, two times, and half a time; and that when the shattering of the power of the holy people comes to an end all these things would be accomplished.  8  I heard, but I did not understand. Then I said, "O my lord, what shall be the issue of these things?"  9  He said, "Go your way, Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end.  10  Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but those who are wise shall understand.  11  And from the time that the continual burnt offering is taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days [1290].  12  Blessed is he who waits and comes to the thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. [1335] 13  But go your way till the end; and you shall rest, and shall stand in your allotted place at the end of the days."

In the previous Chapter, which I do not put here, Daniel 11.1..., speaks of wars between kings that seem to be historical but could also show something of what happened in heaven. Perhaps it is no coincidence that Daniel 11.1 has the same numbering as Rev 11.1; let us remember that God makes use of these things and that 111 is the number that represents Him. It may not have anything to do with it, anyway, I find it very intricate and I think it is not necessary to study it after seeing Daniel 8. However, I do keep the end, Daniel 11:40-45 which seems to speak of the defeat of the evil one in heaven and also coincides with the continuation Daniel 12:1.

 

As almost always, we have two ways to exegete this reading.

 

 

 

The first from heaven:

 

After Satan's first defeat in heaven, he blackmails demanding the same fate of the other traitors (adams and evas). Therefore, God does not expel him yet but when Jesus in heaven, offers to save us in the new nature man, which had not yet been created (not even the Universe had been created), Satan and us, I fear, are expelled, by Michael (12.1). He says that it will be a time of anguish for all nations (I have already spoken of the types of angels and if I do not do it in the conclusion, anyway, without counting these, we would have as groups or nations the Adams, the Eves, the faithful, archangels, powers ...). Your people will be saved, those inscribed in the book of life, from heaven, can be all those who did not rise or can also make reference to the fact that on earth, after the passion of Christ, the Adams will be able to live, that is to say that at the time of this verse (taking it from heaven) may have the opportunity to live, because there were others who did not have it (the fallen and also the Eve; that in the world they will not listen to God and can only be saved by some Adam as, conversely, happened in heaven, when the Adam 'heard' and fell). For after betrayal we are with God, but empty of the Holy Spirit, that is, dead. In (12.2) "Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to eternal life, some to reproach, some to eternal horror," can refer to this very thing; those who awake to eternal reproach are demons and in the end many evas, and the others adams. It is an awakening to the option of living, to the freedom to choose again for the Adams-Evas, because it already speaks of the future "they will awaken for...", ...to do, ...to decide. The learned, I believe, refer to that future in the world of some men.

 

To the question When will the fulfillment of these wonders be? Answer 3'5 times (begins in heaven) and all these things will be fulfilled when the breaking of the strength of the holy people ends (ends already on earth ...). It says breaking of the strength of the Holy people, not breaking of the Holy people. I think it refers to our "inferiority or vulnerability" of our conditions towards the world. That is to say, that we are constantly attacked and we are called not to defend ourselves. Now we are surrounded by needs and temptations, and more options to sin than we had in heaven. In fact, we might think it is now, in these times because there is more contempt for the things of God than ever, but in reality it is something continuous in history. The devil has never left his job. It could also refer to the fulfillment of passion, in which the "broken" in our souls is arranged. I believe however that it is the first option, and this prediction like the other of Daniel 8 speaks from the initial betrayal until the end of time, although not of the restoration of the Sanctuary (remember that in Daniel 8 had added 1010 years for this restoration).

 

Three and a half times, then, refers, as I have already explained, to our periods of life, that is: The first time, is our time in heaven where the betrayal occurred. The second time is outside of God, but not even on earth, this also exposed in the first chapters of this essay (Cain and Abel, Tower of Babel, Ark of Noah ...), the third time that comes grouped with the previous (2 times), is our time outside of God, but only until the passion of Christ, time in which our nature changes and is validated and can receive again the Holy Spirit. From passion to the end is half-time. We must bear in mind, and this is best seen in Revelation, that 1290 days / 365 days = 3'5342 years (1 time, two times + half time). It tells us that it is the same time (3'53 years are 1290 days), since it always speaks from betrayal in heaven and are our equivalent stages of life (in each we have played the Life); however, at the same time, it seems that the longer numbers refer to our stage on earth or even after. As for: blessed is he who knows how to wait for the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days, that is, 45 more days (1335-1290=45), it seems that he speaks to us of a moment after the end of the breakdown of the Holy People. Perhaps it is a time that refers to those who, of those who endure this brokenness and do not need purification (up to 1000 years, let us remember), can, after those '45' of waiting, come to God. Or it may simply be that this number has been chosen because it represents equanimous justice: 1335 (blessed is he who comes to) divided by the 365 days of the year (as we did with 1260 and 1290), gives us 3,65:

1335 / 365 = 3,65

That number divided by the days of a year gives us one-hundredth of a year for each day. It could well represent that those who arrive at the judgment or, better said, at the distribution, will take their just measure (others will not arrive, and without judgment, but sentenced for being empty, they will be stripped of what they think they have).

 

The 1290 comes from calculating the figures rounding with decimals; in the Apocalypse it also calculates rounding and they come out:

 

1260/365 = 3.452 years ~ 3.5.        (3.5 years x 12 months = 42 months, x 30 days = 1260 days)

1290/365 = 3.53   years ~ 3.5.

 

A way also to indicate under the same number 3.5, the period until the previous passion (1260), and until the end of the world (1290).

 

Finally, in 12.11, it marks again the beginning of the time to which it refers: abolished the perpetual sacrifice, which I have already explained at the beginning of this section, and installed the abomination of desolation (or that the cursed idol be installed in other translations), which refers to the demon being installed on earth next to us or simply in our will speaking of heaven, because it equals one moment to the other; it is not that it is between one and the other, because the final moment anticipates it in 12.7, as we have already seen: and all these things will be fulfilled when the breaking of the strength of the Holy People is over.

Here, to the question When will the fulfillment of these wonders be? He does not answer directly when they will be fulfilled (will be fulfilled when the breaking of the holy people ends), but he answers first "Three and a half times and all these things will be fulfilled...", that is, he says first the beginning of everything, in heaven (3'5) and then when it will end. If I speak of a long list of things that they are going to do to me in a long stay in the hospital with intermediate operations and convalescences, and someone asks me when will that be? I will answer: it will be such a day and I will go out which one, or it will last so long.

It will be 1290 days, I have already explained, it also determines that it speaks of the end of the world, not when in itself it will be, or a specific date.

 

From the earth:

 

Directly we would put ourselves at the end of the world, and Miguel would be in charge of making the sieve. The adams and some converted evas will be those inscribed in the book of life.  (12,2) Many who live in the dust of the earth..., it seems evident: heaven/hell. (12,3) The learned will shine, likewise, a reward for the learned...

To the answer "Three and a half times and all these things shall be fulfilled...", we could then suppose that the 3'5 (or beginning of all this) could speak of the end of the period in which we are and there would still be a stretch to the breaking of the strength of the Holy people. But I do not think it is this option, but it is part of the ambiguity or double vision of these passages. I believe it is the first choice (3'5 = heaven) and that indeed the end of Daniel 11: 40-45, the verses preceding Michael's verse (12:1), also speak of Satan's defeat in heaven.

 

Daniel 11:40-45  "At the time of the end the king of the south shall attack him; but the king of the north shall rush upon him like a whirlwind, with chariots and horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall come into countries and shall overflow and pass through.  41  He shall come into the glorious land. And tens of thousands shall fall, but these shall be delivered out of his hand: Edom and Moab and the main part of the Ammonites.  42  He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape43  He shall become ruler of the treasures of gold and of silver, and all the precious things of Egypt; and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall follow in his train.  44  But tidings from the east and the north shall alarm him, and he shall go forth with great fury to exterminate and utterly destroy many.  45  And he shall pitch his palatial tents between the sea and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, with none to help him.

 

"He will enter his lands," he will steal the Essence, the Holy Spirit. "The land of splendor", the altar and those who worship it; Edom, Moab and the rest of the Ammonites may be the faithful angels... "Egypt" the fallen angels. Gold and silver, as almost always represents the Spirit. "Libyans and kusites will follow Him," may be the adams and evas. News comes from the East, and from the North. East is where the sun rises, and represents God, the North, can be the faithful, or Christ or Michael (North, the first), I do not know. This is his defeat (or first defeat), but "he goes out with fury to exterminate many" refers to the blackmail that left everything standing and made him revive or come out of the abyss. After the blackmail we are with God, but not in God (2nd Stage), we are "planted between the sea" (symbolizes death) "and the holy mount of the Earth of splendor" (God himself and his altar and those who worship him). "Then his end will come and no one will come to his aid”. Christ accepts or offers Himself for passion; creation of the Universe... This last verse links to 12.1 which speaks of Michael, the angel who drives Satan out of heaven definitively....

Thus it seems clearer, although in this chapter 11, it is not clear who is the attacked king and the attacker, or I have not been able to discern clearly; in some translations the king of the Midday is called king of the South, which also does not put me beyond doubt. Anyway, the end of Daniel 11, which are these verses that we have seen, seem more or less understandable in this line and also link with what comes next.

 

Well, given that, as I say, it is not a question of drawing a specific date, these times speak to us more of stages, sometimes in a blurred way, to include many times more than one. Neither should we confuse them with a continuous cycle of reincarnation; these are the consequence of God's attempt at salvation, which is realized in the creation of the new Man Nature, validated by full Justice. These 3'5 steps are our history, including our betrayal and salvation. There are some religions that glimpse part of this and frame it, as I said, in a continuous cycle of reincarnation, and as almost always there is some truth, but it is not our destiny or our end, but it has been a means of God to save us, which has generated some determined and counted stages.

 

As always, much will have passed me by, but everything goes here. Whoever has patience and studies it, will surely reach more concrete conclusions than mine, because it can be concretized, but there are no more perspectives; it is not a question of doing a strange operation that gives us the concrete date of the end of the world.

This being so, why leave it sealed? Perhaps to confirm this knowledge, so that today we know our history of salvation from heaven. Or simply so that the opening of the seal may be considered a sign that Our Lord is about to arrive.

As a note to add, I would now like to look at this reading:

Exo 34:7  keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children, to the third and the fourth generation."

Love for a thousand generations is clear, but does it punish the guilt of the parents in the children until 3th and 4th generation? It makes no sense, nor would it be fair, and God is the Righteous One par excellence; rather, it seems to refer here to those ages or times (3 and a half times).

Besides, if it speaks of time or generations, why not say up to the 4th generation directly? Because, the 3rd time (before Christ -passion- on earth) and the 4th (after Christ passion on earth), are different; in these two we have been, separately, all fallen in one way or another, in the first two also but together. Normal then, to be names separately because it is targeted at different and independent people, of different periods, all with their own sin. It could not be otherwise.

Curiosities of the numbers we have seen:

 

3.5 x 3.5 x 3.5 = 42

1260/365 = 3,452 years ~ 3,5.  

1290/365 = 3.53 years ~ 3.5.

1335/365 = 3.65

3.5 years x 12 months = 42 months, x 30 days = 1260 days.

 

·      Logically...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not interpreting in order to change, but to investigate a deeper meaning. Taking the Bible and our own feelings of God within us, and combining it all with some of our logic, we can come to glimpse the logic of God.

 

The fact that God speaks to all mankind from the beginning is the reason why there are different religions, because not everyone could understand that we were made in His image and likeness, or that Mary was a virgin and conceived a child, or that Jesus Christ was the Son of God (created person + exact essence of God). And 1000 or 2000 years ago, we didn’t even know about radio waves, how could one speak of a Holy Spirit that gives life to you and me at the same time? How could one think that that Spirit makes you different, a new man, even while keeping your same person? It was much more difficult and God taught with rules. And even before that, that the Spirit could not even dwell in us? Even more difficult, which is why the different language used from the Old Testament (Torah) to the New (Gospel ...) is logical. The Quran is also logical insofar as it is directed toward another community with another history, and another understanding. And furthermore, everything is according to the will of God, because He wanted to see how we all advanced towards Him without being together, to preserve our freedom.

 

According to this, wouldn’t everything be more understandable? Like the plot of a movie perhaps, but this way it is more easily understood and fits together without plot holes.

 

And yes: it does sound harsh to say that we were angels before we were men. Imagine, to make it easier, that we were simple wishes or thoughts of God and that because we were wished by Him, we already had life: a life that we lived making our free choices and unfortunately our betrayal. It is true that we are now a new creation and have no memory, but our soul does; it stirs, longing for what it once contained, what it Was.

There is something that from this logic makes sense above all and that has to do with our “not inherited from two men” sin, and that is the ability of some to hear the word of God and the inability of others. This was already explained by what was said about Adam and Eve, but I think the Bible affirms it even more with Cain and Abel. Cain, the first son of Adam and Eve, killed Abel out of envy (God is more pleased by his offering). Cain already lived outside of Eden, but as punishment, God cast him from where he was (again) and tells him that no one will do anything to him, that is, He doesn’t punish him, He allows him to keep living without the earth giving him fruit (or without being able to be filled with God?). Adam and Eve then have Seth. Cain weds a woman and they have offspring, and Seth does too. Then continuing in Genesis, it seems to makes a distinction between the offspring of Cain (the bad) and Seth (the good), which become mixed. Again, as with Eve, it calls those who are not children of God “daughters of men”, female: Genesis 6:1-2 (I’ve included it 2 pages from here).

 

Not only in Genesis: the Bible distinguishes on several occasions between those who cannot understand and those who can. Even Jesus Christ spoke in parables so that they would not understand, as I said, and that’s not all:

 

John 8:43-44

Why do you not understand what I say? Because you cannot bear to listen to my words.

You are from your father, the devil, and you prefer to do what your father wants. He was a murderer from the start; he was never grounded in the truth; there is no truth in him at all. When he lies he is speaking true to his nature, because he is a liar, and the father of lies.

 

Or this passage which speaks of the apostles, although they (or we, I hope) are many:

 

John 17:9  

It is for them that I pray. I am not praying for the world but for those you have given me, because they belong to you.

 

Well, there’s no need to draw any conclusions to see that there is something unusual or hidden in Genesis. From the other direction, knowing what is hidden, it is much easier to figure out what is written. Let’s see how, and in what parts the first verses of the Bible are divided, as well as the reason why. The beginning of Genesis is at the end of the essay for reference. The last part analyzed (Chapter 11 of this point), the Tower of Babel, combines everything that happened in way that’s easier to understand and further affirms the reasons; we’ll go over the previous parts a little more superficially.

 

1st Part. Our origin in Heaven. 1st Expulsion. Chapters 1-3.

 

Here, He forms the earth and heavens. He places man in Eden, which is really heaven (Ezekiel 28:12- 17). The devil was there, the serpent, before revealing himself and falling (fallen angel). For us, heaven could not be described as anything other than what we know: our environment on earth. In the first verses is the creation of the earth, and so it should be, but is the only beginning conceivable by man: origin, earth. That is, even if we first had a celestial nature, how would He explain it? How do you explain heaven? And above all, did God want to explain it? No. The reason has already been discussed: to preserve our freedom and be able to recover us without coercion.

In this first part, in the Garden of Eden, He always calls them “man” or “woman”, and they are later called Adam and Eve. An important difference, because calling him “man” does not refer even metaphorically to one, but to many.

The “man” did this...

The “woman” said that... (even in this case it can be generalized).

Here, because of the woman, man ceases to be what he was for God. Both “die”: the woman “killed” by the devil, the man “killed” by the woman. Death of Being So the word “woman” is not “female”, but represents those who are emptied of God by believing the devil, those who are not written in the book of life here among us, or those who do not listen and as fools only have ears for money and the idols of the world, for the devil. I say “represents”, but it actually corresponds to what happened in heaven.

“Man”, also empty of God because of the “woman”, will have his ears open to the word of God in the world, as they did not let themselves be convinced by the devil, but because of their love for the “woman”. But through the “man”, the “woman” can find salvation, and this is symbolized by the rib, which is also near the heart. Because of the love of the “man”, the “woman” is given an opportunity; or, put another way: if because of the “woman”, the “man” dies, then the “woman” can only live because of the work of the “man”. It is therefore a representation of what was to happen; that later follows with “daughters of men” contrasted with the term “sons of God”.

In this 1st Part, “man” and “woman” are cast out of heaven (Eden).

 

 

2nd Part. Close to God, not on earth yet. 2nd Expulsion. Chapter 4.

 

We are now out of Eden. It tells the story of Cain and Abel, sons of Adam and Eve (now they are named, at the end of Chapter 3 Eve is also named, when they are cast out). Here, they still talk face to face with God, even those who do not “please” the Lord. Again, one kills the other (Cain kills Abel). Curiously, the story (death of being) is repeated. Cain is “cast out” because of this to somewhere else that will not give him any fruit (those who do not hear, on earth they do not receive the Spirit). It isn’t an expulsion from a real place, given that in the place he is sent to he should be alone, but it speaks of him being there with people who can hurt him. He even marries and has offspring in a place where there is no one, because until now there was only Eden and the place where Adam and Eve were sent to, and their offspring.

 

Genesis 4:12-15

When you till the ground it will no longer yield up its strength to you. A restless wanderer you will be on earth.'

...

Look, today you drive me from the surface of the earth. I must hide from you, and be a restless wanderer on earth. Why, whoever comes across me will kill me!'

'Very well, then,' Yahweh replied, 'whoever kills Cain will suffer a sevenfold vengeance.' So Yahweh put a mark on Cain, so that no one coming across him would kill him.

 

It means that wherever he is, he cannot receive fruit. Cast out from the presence of God. It is not an expulsion from an actual place.

The Eves or Cains (whose offspring, as I said, are later called “daughters of men”) are condemned to wander the earth without receiving the Holy Spirit if not for the Adams or Abels, since the latter were killed by the former.

 

Recap of the 2nd Part, “being close to God”. Chapter 5.

 

Genesis 5:1-2

This is the roll of Adam's descendants: On the day that God created Adam he made him in the likeness of God.

Male and female he created them. He blessed them and gave them the name Man, when they were created.

...

 

 

3rd Part. Noah; we go from “Close to God” to our earth. Chapters 6-9.

 

The story was “interrupted” with the recap in chapter 5.

 

Genesis 6:1-2

When people began being numerous on earth, and daughters had been born to them,

the sons of God, looking at the women, saw how beautiful they were and married as many of them as they chose.

 

It is assumed that we are still close to God. The Adams join with the Eves, or the Abels with the Cains, or the hearing with the deaf.

The same thing that happened in heaven keeps happening: the “woman” loses or “kills” the “man”. The deaf kill those who hear. God puts us all together.

He makes clean slate, symbolized by Noah and the ark. The flood is the new beginning as the true nature of men as we are, with bodies. Again, with an impossible DNA. Starting from Noah, God disappears for us. Before, even the deaf could talk to Him; from now on, only a select few.

Noé simboliza nuestro paso de naturaleza ‘celestial’ a naturaleza hombre, lo que confirma que Dios es Amor. Él provee lo necesario para nuestra salvación, y la naturaleza hombre es naturaleza sujetadora (de algo vacío que se cae junto a Luzbel, a la muerte eterna), para que en uso de nuestra libertad y en la redención posterior de tal naturaleza (por Jesús) podamos llenarnos de nuevo de Dios y salvarnos. Ver 8.5 Justicia y Redención en Jesús p. 190

Recap of the 3rd Part, “Noah and our earth”. Chapter 10.

 

This begins with the same structure as the recap of “being close to God” (that of our first stay out of heaven, but not on earth, 2nd part).

 

Genesis 10:1

These are the descendants of Noah's sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, to whom sons were born after the flood:               …

 

The descendants of Noah and the kingdoms of the earth that they form are recounted and later will be discussed and named in the Bible. Interestingly, in the previous part about our first stay out of heaven, no kingdom or city created by them is named (with all the years they lived). Nor any towns or peoples. Although it is true that everything is “erased” by the flood, it’s still strange that they aren’t even named... And what a coincidence: starting from Noah, man lives 120 years and not the 800 or more years they lived in the part before our earth. Today the oldest woman in the world is 116 according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Today… on our earth.

Genesis 6:3                                            (3rd Part)

Yahweh said, 'My spirit cannot be indefinitely responsible for human beings, who are only flesh; let the time allowed each be a hundred and twenty years.'

Chapter 11. The Tower of Babel. Independently summarizes all of the above.

 

Let’s look at the tower of Babel:

 

Genesis 11:1-2

Now the whole earth had one language and few words.

And as men migrated from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there.                             (Revised Standard Version – Catholic Edition1)

 

 

We are in heaven, all of us God’s wishes. But we begin to doubt => humanity moves from the east[1] (from the rising sun to sunset, to death). And we are in the valley (= lowland area, usually next to a river => Life = God). We are emptying ourselves or doubting, and we’re no longer in God, but we are still in heaven, or perhaps in a moment that is post-Eden and before the world (corresponds to the section “being close to God”).

 

Genesis 11:3

They said to one another, 'Come, let us make bricks and bake them in the fire.' For stone they used bricks, and for mortar they used bitumen.

 

Perhaps these bricks symbolize our containers, souls or person, empty of the Spirit.

 

Genesis 11:4-9

'Come,' they said, 'let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top
