Sinner’s Prayer is not Biblical / We are not Separated from God / Our belief does not Save us, Christ did

I don’t want you to think that I believe that all of the Bible is useless, but it is challenging to sort through it and find the errors and the truth, which is also why I believe that God is so much more than this book can even define, we are limited to human knowledge and flaws in this place, and not one of us is perfect. I do think that God did use some men to help us learn about Him, and about the History of this place, to give us guidance on how to live here and how to love.  God Himself being love is unable to hate, and the destruction that is caused in so much of the Bible was not of His creation, but of Lucifer and his fallen angel’s invasion of this earth. Which in turn means, like us the angels where given free will as well. They will be punished to some degree I’m guessing, because they were with God, saw God’s power and majesty first hand and still wanted power and to overthrow their own creator.

We are given power as well, but 95% of Christians at least in the U.S. will never access that because their knowledge of the truth and their faith in God is weak. Religion in and of itself is a cage that so many will be trapped in all their lives. People don’t have to be trapped and the way we are taught keeps us caged until we are willing to break free from that cage.  We are taught that sin separates us from God, but that’s not true, nothing can separate us from God and the love of God.  Christ death was not in vain, because He came to save all of humanity (all meaning all) some are just not aware of this, because they are taught the lies of this world and Lucifer’s deceit or they have Bible bashing Christians (I know there are well meaning Christians out there to) that have abused and scared them away from God mentally.

I am not religious, I am a seeker of truth and if I had to claim something I’d say I’m spiritual, because I am continuously growing and learning in my relationship with the Spirit which our Creator provided for this world.  I do believe that Christ is the Son of God sent for here for us, to show us the overwhelming amount of love God is and has for all of us. Though, it’s possible some will fall in to a place of discipline or renewing of the mind, once this life is over, they will not be there forever and I do not believe that God allows demons to torture people. If He were to allow demons to torture people, that would be Him allowing the bad guys to have even more control over us and more power, but that makes no sense if you really think about it.  Why would He reward those that have gone against Him knowing Him face to face. Did He not cast them beneath the earth already into chains?  So, at some point He would just release them to have the joys, which it would be to them, to torture His most precious children, the ones made in His own image?

I have researched about these things in other blog post namely the ones about Hell and Jonah, which you can find in my list of blog post should you be interested to read more about that.  As always, pray before you dig into anything, trust God will guide you and learn to think and question things, instead of using my pastor said or it’s in the Bible and that settles it.  Research this book that has become an idol to so many.  The Bible is a historical document that helps us see what happened in the past and even some of what will happen in the future, but there are flaws, I assure you of that. Seek and you will find, you can even start seeking to prove me wrong or to prove the Bible right, however you choose to do so, seek and you will find truth, but you will never find it if you stay in the little box you are told to stay in.  Christ was considered a rebel, and I will walk in faith and be a rebel just as He was. Your faith and your road are your choice in this matter.  May peace and grace be with you in reading this and in your life, God Bless and I hope that you learn something great from this study.

Matthew 7

Matthew 7 talks about many things, Do Not Judge Others, Asking and seeking after God, True and false prophets, True and false disciples, the wise and the foolish builders, but I had someone ask about the Narrow and Wide gates spoken of in Matthew 7: 13-14. The topic that was being talked about was, is the Bible perfect in every word, or is it filled with translated errors, theology, and indoctrination from centuries of men putting in their thoughts and opinions by way of utilizing different words in the Greek and Hebrew languages as the books came together.

I have not researched this verse for errors before, but before I delve into this, I want to recap on some other issues in the Bible and point out a couple errors to show there are indeed errors. There is no logical way that anything that man has had his hand on in this world, is perfect, only God can create perfection. The Bible that is used mostly today is the KJV (King James Version).

First off, let’s talk a little about King James.

The King James Version

King James I, who commissioned the King James Version translation, was undoubtedly homosexual. It was whispered that “Elizabeth was King: Now James is Queen.”

James I was responsible for reaffirming the Buggery Act of 1533, which criminalized sodomy in the UK. (Sodomy which was deemed a term for homosexuals, after being indoctrinated into the Bible, sometime after Sodom was destroyed, people made it appear as though that was why it was destroyed, but the truth is not so, and you can find the truth by reading in the book of Jasher.)  However, James I had several well-documented homosexual relationships. Although he had eight children with his wife, Anne of Denmark, they eventually decided to live apart. In 1607 he met Robert Carr, then age 17, at a joust, and had an on-going relationship with him for nearly a decade, which ended in a messy breakup. In 1614, he started a relationship with George Villiers, a commoner, eventually making him Duke of Buckingham in 1623. In 1624, James wrote Villiers a letter in which he asked “whether you loved me now…better than at the time I shall never forget at Farham, where the bed’s head could not be found between the master and his dog.”

Do more digging about this if you would like, but the Bible you hold so dear to you and the version of it that’s translation, was approved by a gay man, one that many Christians today would throw hate words towards or send them the phrases you are going to hell or you are an abomination to God. Which is, the main reasons why many people who are gay have a burning hate for Christians and God.

Enoch and Jasher are Scripture

There is one thing that most Christians are clueless about, they simply over look so many things, because that is what they are told to do and they are good followers, that never question anything, I know, I used to be one. One of the things that hinders them is the Bible itself, it is the only book they are willing to read and will deny any errors or contradictions through and through. This poses a problem for them and gives a great deal of control to the devil himself.  If you are unaware of history, history will repeat itself, and that is where many of us that God has raised up to speak come in. The Bible says, as in the days of Noah, but they have no clue what the days of Noah where like, because they refuse to read the books of Enoch and Jasher, two very important books and keys to the scripture that have been separated from the Bible.  Here are some things you should know about Enoch and Jasher, and why you should read them.

If you believe as I do that much of the scriptures (minus the mistranslated and indoctrinated errors) are divinely inspired by God, God seems to be endorsing these two books. As we are told, in the mouth of two or three witnesses you can establish if a thing is true are not. Note, that if you do a comparison with Jasher and Genesis, you will find that Genesis is just a summed up version of Jasher, it has been stripped of a lot of detailed information.

Jasher means (Hebrew) “upright”, true, just account

The name refers to the fact that the record, facts, and history are upright, correct, and thus trustworthy.

It is referenced in:

Joshua 10:13 So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar.

2 Samuel 1:18 and he ordered that the people of Judah be taught this lament of the bow (it is written in the Book of Jashar):

2 Timothy 3:8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth.

Inferred here talking about Jannes and Jambres who opposed Moses.  The only way Paul could have known this is through the book of Jasher.

Enoch was considered scripture and has been in and out of the Bible several times.

  • There are at least a hundred references in the New Testament that find precedence nowhere else in the Bible except the book of Enoch
  • Quoted by Jesus, Peter, and Jude
  • Widely known and read in the 1st Century
  • Viewed as Scripture by early Church Fathers
  • Still in Ethiopian Coptic Bible
  • Found in Dead Sea Scrolls

Enoch 1

  1. The word of the blessing of Enoch, how he blessed the elect and the righteous, who were to exist in the time of trouble [day of Tribulation]; rejecting all the wicked and ungodly. Enoch, a righteous man, who was (1) with God, answered and spoke, while his eyes were open, and while he saw a holy vision in the heavens. This the angels showed me. 2. From them I heard all things, and understood what I saw; that which will not take place in this generation, but in a generation which is to succeed at a distant period (also stated as remote [future]), on account of the elect.

These books together tell us more about the fallen angels which is needed for a time like we are living in.  God has preserved these books for us.  To help us learn about the past, so we are better able to combat the efforts of the fallen angels today and in the future.

Fallen Angels

We are told that 1/3 of the angels fell with Lucifer, other than that we don’t know much from the 66 books.  The Bible refers to giants, but most people do not make the connection between the fallen angel children they made with humans, that are called the Nephilim. We do know that the serpent is Lucifer. In Genesis 3:13-15 He deceived Adam and Eve and God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, Cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life.  And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

You just read that as I did, and I have read it many times, but did you really notice that it said that the devil has offspring! The fallen angels came down and chose wives for themselves, they forced them to be with them, and this did not seem to be an agreement with the women.

The angels are also referred to as the sons of God in Genesis, some pastors are taught that they are the sons of Cain and the good ones are the sons of Seth. That is not correct. Cousins don’t produce 17’ to 36’ foot giants.  These were fallen angels come down to take human women.  The Amorites where known to start at about 35’.

Now that I’ve shown you two things that are problematic with this so called perfect book let’s look into the question.  To clarify this, when I say there are errors, that does not mean that every single verse has an error, though it could very well be taken out of context or the meaning could have changed to something different over time and it no longer means what the actual writers meant for it to mean. This would be because of theological changes and indoctrination over the centuries of Lucifer and his clan trying to lead God’s people astray from the truth, which they have done well, but God raised up those that would fight for His cause and seek His truth and not the truth of man.  Even the Bible speaks of those that would rise up in the end.

The Narrow and Wide Gates

13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

My first thoughts on these two sentences are that destruction is the destruction of the life we are given in this place, because our minds are seemingly separated from God.  Even though this may be the case, God sent His Son to save all, not some or just the good ones, all.  If you think about it, if you don’t follow the laws God gave us, like don’t murder for example, it leads to bad things happening.  If you murder, you destroy a life and in turn yours could very well be destroyed too.  God wants us to carry with us the freedom, love, and life He has given us here, and not waste it, He does not want us to destroy ourselves in this life, being mentally apart from Him.

Now let’s take a look at the history of things surrounding these verses.

Calvinism or Arminianism? Why Even the Most Intelligent Fall Into Error. (Even the elect will be deceived.)

Calvinism: God’s power extends over our will (irresistible grace).

Arminianism: Christ died for all. God saves all who come to him. God’s power does not interfere with free will, yet His love extends to all.

Both of these viewpoints are clinging onto a certain truth of scripture and then logically deducing the rest. Calvinism is clinging onto the truth that God is all powerful (irresistible grace). God can orchestrate your salvation by manipulating circumstances to bring your will in line with his. Arminianism is clinging to the truth that Christ died for all and God gave us free will. Neither one is wrong about these starting points, yet due to the assumption that only a few are saved in the end, we find these two theological paradigms diametrically opposed. Jesus did not say a few were saved, but rather that only a few find their way to life (truth) in this age, while many take the road to destruction (the destruction of ourselves here in this world). He essentially said only a few take the road to life in this age, while many take the road to death:

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: “

So many will go through the renewing of their minds to know God, and there will be fewer to have a true understanding of God and are not mentally separated from God.  Yet, Calvin believed many will go to an eternal hell. Therefore, if we start with irresistible grace, and God is just, we find that Christ could only have died for the elect, as God does not save all.

Arminius saw this as a paradox, in that God would condemn someone from creation to go to an eternal hell. So, he started with the doctrine that Christ died for all and it is free will that leads some to eternal damnation.

However, let me ask you something. What if they both started with the assumption that God saves all eventually, either by their choosing Christ through free will (via God bringing them to faith) or by corrective action (via God using Hades to bring them to faith or full understanding)?

Calvin and Arminius Combined with the assumption God saves all humankind: Christ died for all. God is all powerful and can influence anyone to repentance, yet it is by our free will. Some come to faith in this life. Some come to faith through corrective discipline. God is all powerful, so he is wise enough to bend all wills, whether it is through this age or the next.

If one realizes the assumption of eternal torment is in error, the theology of both can become harmonious. Neither Calvin nor Arminius were incorrect in their starting points. Yet, both made some false conclusion when developing their theologies, as they assumed “eternal torment” for the unbeliever.

So, we can see, if we have even one false assumption, we can create large theological rifts within the church.

It could also be seen, that annihilationist as a potential paradigm, where God saves most, yet others suffer eternal punishment. In a sense, it seems to mirror our own worldly justice system of putting people in prison. Yet, God would know how to best bring people to faith, even if it has to be through corrective punishment.

So, there are paradigms that have created this chaos that is Christianity today and those were two examples of that, Catholicism, would be another and several other denominations are spinoffs of the two above, along with Catholicism.  For example, Baptists are a spinoff of Calvinism and Methodist I believe are a spinoff of Catholics.  There should only be one faith, but there are so many that just as they were all construed and created by the mislead elect, they are missing who God truly is and how He is with His creation.

Now to hit on this topic a little deeper. Is it possible for us to be separated from God?  We need to realize just how loving of a God created each of us, and how it is impossible to be separated from God.

The track many Christians used that approached me when I was younger and even today is based on sin and separation from God. My so called sin, or the one they always choose to pick with me, is my being born gay which I’ve learned from my studies, is not a sin at all.  They say that because of the way I was born and because I’m unable to be with a man, that I’m living in sin and that I will go to hell if I don’t stop living my life, in this way.  They told me that this sin separated me from God and until I chose to rid myself of it, and say the sinner’s prayer, I would be bound for hell fire and damnation. Which denies the finished work of Christ.

The idea that is tossed at people, is that there is a great gulf between God and sinful humanity, and Jesus fills that gulf, as long as you repent of your sins and say the sinner’s prayer. We have all seen the picture of two cliffs with humanity on side and God on the other, with the cross/Christ laid between the two. We are God’s creation, so how can we be separated from God?  As I just said, this idea of separation, denies the finished work of Jesus Christ. I won’t deny that sin has consequences, but how can anything be more powerful than God, our mistakes aren’t powerful enough to rip us out of God’s hands. This is why I believe that all of humanity, those knowing God now and those who will not know Him until after death, will be reconciled to Him. Those who do not know Him, will be sent through a refiners fire, which is not a literal fire, but one in which we do not understand that is in essence the glory and power of God. They will be there for Aionos, which means for a time.

If man were separated from God, that would make man a God which is pagan and called dualism. This separation from God is not Christian, its pagan Greek philosophy. This idea of separation from God, comes from Isaiah 59:2 which states, “But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.” Our sins have cause us to be unable to see God, but this does not mean that God we are separated from Him.  I agree God hates sin, that’s what put Jesus on the cross, but that doesn’t mean we are separated from our creator. The people became blind because of sin which is true, and there was no peace to be found. So in verses 59:15-16 God took action for His people.

Isaiah 59:15-16
Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.  The Lord looked and was displeased that there was no justice.16 He saw that there was no one, he was appalled that there was no one to intervene; so his own arm achieved salvation for him, and his own righteousness sustained him.

We need to throw out this Greek philosophy of dualism, it’s not biblical, and again, it’s pagan.

Colossians 1:16-17
16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

Notice it says all things four times, if you need any more reassurance, I don’t know what to tell you. Paul was talking to pagans in Acts 17 when he said this, not Christians.

Acts 17: 28 ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’

So, this doesn’t apply only to those who believe, because Christ holds all things together, and we deny His power, grace, and mercy when we say otherwise. The only true separation that the Bible talks about is in our minds, it’s us that believes we are separate from God, when in truth we are never separate from God.

Colossians 1: 21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation,

You cannot be separated from God, it is truly impossible. So in Matthew 7 when it talks about destruction, it’s basically the mental alienation from God that people choose, it’s not because of sin per say though He does warn us of sin many times and there are consequences when we sin. We need to have self-control and not be swayed by those that would lead us away from the truth of God.

Christ did what He did on that cross for all of humanity, He is the last Adam. Your belief does not seal the deal with Christ, Christ sealed the deal for all of us already by His actions on this earth and giving His life for His people. God said that Jesus’s life and death would not be in vain. Thus, all would be saved, the moment that He said, “It is finished.”  It’s about Him, not about us, Rom. 5:8 “even as we were still sinners, Christ still died for us.”  Read these verses:

Romans 5: 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5: 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! 11 Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

Do you not see in that statement that Christ saved us all, He rescued a fallen humanity and made us all a new creation in Himself?  Christ died for the ungodly, see.  While we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of his Son, it said WHILE, not after we said a prayer or once we stopped sinning completely, while we were God’s enemies. That is the gospel, that is what Christians miss, it’s not just for those who believe a certain way, or those who do their best to be right on the narrow path, it’s for all.  There is no hell fire and damnation, if this does exist it’s not for God’s people, it was created for the devil and his angels like it states in Matthew 25:41.

Your unbelief does not change what Christ accomplished for all humanity on that cross, and your belief does not seal the deal, you are not more powerful than God to be able to complete this on your own, Christ and Christ alone sealed the deal.

Yes, this world would be a better place and our lives would be better if we were to all follow along that narrow path, but that path is the path that Christ walked and tried to show us and it leads to life here and in the next life when we get new physical bodies. The problem is that we are not perfect, we are temped in many ways, and we still fail.  We who know God, and have a heart for God strive to do the best we can and strive to learn to love God and people, but we will fail and every time we do, that beautiful strong hand of Christ will be right there to help us back up if we want it. He is waiting for us, life would be more fulfilling if we all saw the truth, but not all do and religion causes division among the people. For us to truly see God, we have to cast religion away and just get to know our Creator.

Where sin increases, Grace increases even more. The truth does set you free, once you know and learn what it is that is true.  Instead of living your life stressed and walking on eggshells form messing up, you can live your life knowing that when you make a mistake, you are already forgiven. One of our greatest issues is that we don’t forgive ourselves, we carry a burden that Christ Himself said, and if you would believe that you would not have to carry. It’s already there present and waiting for every single one of us, but not all will find and know that freedom. Many will live on the dark side or without the truth of God and they will carry their own weight because they don’t know they are already saved in Christ.

Psalm 139
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? 8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. 9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, 10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. 11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” 12 even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

Colossians 3
3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Hebrews 13: 5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Romans 8: 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

This union with God is inseparable, and this is the Gospel and the truth about Grace.

Gnosticism, Sex, Marriage, Lust, Adultery, Homosexuality

The more I read and learn, the more I see so much error in the way we are taught in churches today. What is termed Christianity today is loaded with, for one, Gnostic beliefs and not even biblical teachings. If you look at the stories in the Bible there are stories of love between two men, two women, men with many wives, men sleeping with their wives handmaids, men sleeping with concubines, and even their slaves were fair game. There is technically, what is thought in the creation story to give us a standard for marriage, which actually has no statute of marriage biblically speaking that is highly proclaimed by the conservatives of today. Adam was androgynous when God created him, which in turn means that God may be also, as well as, the angels. We know they were sexed by some means, because they came down and mated with human women. Of course this is spoken very little of in Genesis, as Genesis is just a summed up version of Jasher, and there is one small snip it of Enoch in Genesis. Both of these books should be read by any who would read the Bible, along with several other books, but are shunned by most all modern day Christians. These books are historical documents and the best way for us to determine what God’s character is like, along with the history of this world, is by reading these documents.

“Marriage does not unite one man and one woman in one flesh for the purpose of procreation and sexual enjoyment. Instead, marriage unties free Israelite men with as many women and slaves as they can reasonably support.” – Unprotected Text by Jennifer Knust

When you get to the books of Exodus and Deuteronomy, you will discover that there are some listings of the way the free men were supposed to treat the women, be it slaves or other property, seeing as they saw women as property in those days. The only problem is they are not consistent. Even the writings of Matthew, Mark, and Luke are inconsistent and contradictory. So all in all there is no explanation of marriage other than property and estate clauses for those that traded according to the bridal account for women when they married them. It’s basically a legal agreement or contract and not a spiritual one.

“(Matt. 12:48-50 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? And who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.) From Jesus’s perspective, the family is made up of fellow believers, not kin with formal ties outsiders might recognize.

(Matt. 3:9-10 And think not to say within yourselves, we have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth forth not good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. ) and therefore all people must “bear fruit worthy of repentance”

(Matt. 3:8 Bring therefore fruits meet for repentence🙂 He makes a similar point later on in His ministry: When a disciple promises to follow Jesus after first burying his father, Jesus responds, “Follow me, and let the dead bury the dead”

(Matt. 8:22) Jesus devalues literal family ties to the extent that He would rather His followers ignore the death of a parent than miss the chance to follow Him.” – Unprotected Text by Jennifer Knust

The bond that we have with our blood relatives, is not the bond that Jesus found to be important, it was the bond with those that followed Him alone, that He found to be of the utmost importance.

The “marriage laws” of those days. There are laws about Hebrew slaves, if they are bought or brought into slavery with a wife, she is to go with him and when the seven years is up for them, they will go free together, but if the slave marries while already enslaved by his master, his wife and children remain the masters property and when the seven years is up, the slave man goes free but his family is left behind to the master at that point the slave can choose to stay a slave for life to remain with his family. That doesn’t technically speak of marriage as we see it today, this would be considered ripping a family apart or committing to a life of slavery. Then again in Deuteronomy, the women are to be freed just as the men (Deut. 15:12). Nothing seems to be consistent with these different laws or rights and things have changed over time. My thoughts on this is that most of the laws were written by men, but Jesus lumped all the true laws of God up into two when He walked the earth. Love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself.

Even though the Exodus and Deuteronomy laws were a set standard, it doesn’t mean they were followed, just like laws now days. These laws were many, and as I stated before they were not consistent. One instance that will show that these laws weren’t possibly always kept, like the happening between David and Bathsheba. Bathsheba became David’s wife only after he stole his neighbor’s wife and got her pregnant, yet David and Bathsheba were not accused by Nathan of violating the covenant commandments. It’s possible this is because the laws only applied to Israelites, and Uriah was a Hittite so technically they didn’t break any laws. In our eyes today this might seem like an injustice, but that is how thing were back then.

If you read the Song of Songs, the poetry is in and of itself erotic, and not in some form of eroticism within marriage. The Songs of Songs was written in a way that you have to learn how they used different terms in those days. They are not how we use them today, for example one of the phrases they used was to uncover a man’s feet, when in that time mean to sleep with him. They were descriptive by using words they had in their vocabulary to compare someone or something to what things they had seen around them. The story of Ruth tells of Naomi and Ruth’s love for one another. The same Hebrew word that is used in Genesis 2:24 to describe how Adam felt about Eve (and how spouses are supposed to feel toward each other) is used in Ruth 1:14 to describe how Ruth felt about Naomi.

dâbaq, daw-bak’; a primitive root; properly, to impinge, i.e. cling or adhere; figuratively, to catch by pursuit:—abide fast, cleave (fast together), follow close (hard after), be joined (together), keep (fast), overtake, pursue hard, stick, take.

Her feelings are celebrated, not condemned. Naomi took care of Ruth as well and they stayed together. The story of 1 and 2 Samuel tells of King David and his love for Johnathan that, At Jonathan’s funeral, David declares that “he loved Jonathan more than any woman.”

When David had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was bound to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. Saul took him that day and would not let him return to his father’s house. Then Jonathan made a covenant with David, because he loved him as his own soul. Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that he was wearing, and gave it to David, and his armor, and even his sword and his bow and his belt.” (1 Samuel 18:1-4)

This is just a couple of several Bible passages that describe and celebrate an intense love between these two men that went well beyond friendship. King David seen as a hero by most modern Christians, was technically a bisexual (which most Christians would see as an abomination, I do not), adulterous, murderer, and a thief.

Must of what you read of Paul’s writings are against women, free men being in control of women, children, and slaves. Basically, that it’s a man’s world and all should abide by anything that he says. He also said it was better not to marry and to remain a virgin, when God told us to be fruitful and multiply to begin with, that makes his writings to be contradictory to what God ordained in the beginning. That’s not how things started out. He even put himself above all others in 1 Cor. 7:7 in his arrogance, he stated that he wished all others could be as himself. He recommended celibacy for the strong and marriage for the weak.

(This chart is taken from Unprotected Text by Jennifer Knust and is a summarization of what the different book stated about Desire, Sexual Intercourse, and Marriage.)

Author Advice about Desire Advice about Sexual Intercourse Advice about Marriage 
Paul Should be controlled as much as possible. Out-of-control desire is a principal sign of abandonment by God. Avoid it if possible but, if married, have sex regularly so as to avoid temptation. If one is a man, one should not submit to sexual penetration. IF one is a women, one must submit to sexual penetration. Avoid it unless desire is unmanageable. It is intended for the weak in faith. Those ineligible for married life are not considered and thus slaves are largely excluded from Paul’s moral program.
Colossians & Ephesians Should be controlled and managed within a hierarchical household. No specific advice is given regarding the frequency and purpose of sexual intercourse. Free men should love their wives, keeping them under control. Wives, children, and slaves should obey the male head of household.
The Pastor Desire is extremely dangerous, especially for women and young men. Women must procreate if they are to be saved by God. Widows must remarry so as to avoid sexual temptation. Husbands should display their own sexual self-mastery by strictly mastering their subordinates. Male church leaders should marry only once. Virgin “widows” must marry- celibacy is impermissible for them. Those ineligible for married life cannot be leaders in the churches.

 

A good book to read is Unprotected Text, which is where I have taken a few quotes from and the chart above. It will bring more light to how things were around Paul’s time and even more insight to what marriage is and is not. So many things that we have been taught to be certain doctrine, and that the Bible itself is infallible are lies conjured up by men and the translation changed and indoctrinated because of false religious beliefs and theology. Even the Bible calls out certain books, that we are told not to forget, but that the mass majority of Christians of today, refuse to read.

If you believe as I do that the scriptures are divinely inspired by God, God seems to be endorsing these too books. As we are told, in the mouth of two or three witnesses you can establish if a thing is true are not.

Jasher means (Hebrew) “upright”, true, just account

The name refers to the fact that the record, facts, and history are upright, correct, and thus trustworthy.

It is referenced in:

Joshua 10:13 So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself onb its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar.

2 Samuel 1:18 and he ordered that the people of Judah be taught this lament of the bow (it is written in the Book of Jashar):

2 Timothy 3:8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth.

Inferred here talking about Jannes and Jambres who opposed Moses. The only way Paul could have known this is through the book of Jasher.

Enoch was considered scripture and has been in and out of the Bible several times.

  • There are at least a hundred references in the New Testament that find precedence nowhere else in the Bible except the book of Enoch
  • Quoted by Jesus, Peter, and Jude
  • Widely known and read in the 1st Century
  • Viewed as Scripture by early Church Fathers
  • Still in Ethiopian Coptic Bible
  • Found in Dead Sea Scrolls

I have written other blogs about this if you want a deeper dig into those books.

To bring this discussion into and around marriage and see how we got our current indoctrinated point of view on sex, homosexuality, adultery, idolatry, and a few other things, we are going to discuss St. Augustine. St. Augustine of Hippo (Aurelius Augustinus) was a philosopher from A.D. 354 – 430 and was an Algerian-Roman, his philosophy infused Christianity with Gnosticism and Neoplatonism. He is famous for being an inimitable Catholic theologian and for his agnostic contributions to Western philosophy. When Augustine was young he was one to go about in sexual relationships with men and women and he was not shamed to speak of it, but when he got older he reflected on his youth and began to teach that sex is wrong. Manicheans criticized the scriptures, mainly the Old Testament and held chastity and self-denial in honor.

Augustine was “a lively, sensual, hot-tempered person, entirely taken up with his worldly concerns, and unfriendly to Christianity until the close of his life, he became a catechumen (a Christian convert under instruction before baptism) shortly before Augustine reached his sixteenth year (369-370). To his mother Monnica (so the manuscripts write her name, not Monica; b. 331, d. 387) Augustine later believed that he owed what lie became. But though she was evidently an honorable, loving, self-sacrificing, and able woman, she was not always the ideal of a Christian mother that tradition has made her appear. Her religion in earlier life has traces of formality and worldliness about it; her ambition for her son seems at first to have had little moral earnestness and she regretted his Manicheanism more than she did his early sensuality. It seems to have been through Ambrose and Augustine that she attained the mature personal piety with which she left the world. Of Augustine as a boy his parents were intensely proud. He received his first education at Thagaste, learning, to read and write, as well as the rudiments of Greek and Latin literature, from teachers who followed the old traditional pagan methods. He seems to have had no systematic instruction in the Christian faith at this period, and though enrolled among the catechumens, apparently was near baptism only when an illness and his own boyish desire made it temporarily probable.” (You can learn more about St. Augustine here: http://www.iep.utm.edu/augustin/ )

Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Lasciviousness is not about sex or lust. Many people think that this means that they were overwhelmingly sexual or lustful or full of desire. This phrase is about doctrine that leads to a certain mentality. Lasciviousness really means, our own selfish desires, our own selfish way about things. Hebrews Strong’s says, unbridled lust (not necessarily sex), licentiousness, wantonness, outrageousness, shamelessness, and insolence. Being that he taught this theology in this Paradigm, he is the one who started the church towards anti-sex theology.

Romans 6:1-4 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?  God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?  Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Paul was dealing with Manikin Gnostic theology. The idea of the demiurge creating the physical realm and trapping the spirit light in these bodies. The Manikin Gnostics along with St Augustine believed that if you sinned the spirit light left your body. St. Augustine practiced and studied this for nine years before he became a Christian. You releasing the spirit light was seen as good, because you do your sin, you know it’s wrong, but you do it anyway because releasing the spirit light from your body is considered a righteous deed. This all ties into the Marcion Heresy that teaches that the god of the Old Testament is the demiurge. Basically, it was believed that this evil physical god (demiurge) trapped (Christ) the spirit light into your body and you had to let him out. Tertullian wrote against this belief. They went about this in two ways, you could commit evil acts and your spirit light is released, or you avoid doing evil period. These two ways of living were complete opposites based from the same theology.

St. Augustine’s own history reflects that he is a heretic. He had his own concubine that he was with but not married to yet he taught that all sex is sinful. He thought that God put up with people getting married for procreation. He felt guilty for being with the concubine and so he found a girl and married her but ended up divorcing her and went back to his concubine. He could have simply married his concubine and dealt with his natural sexual desires instead of fighting against what God naturally gave him as a desire. He even admitted having sexual relationships with men in his younger years, and possibly even as a Christian. So he taught about sex in general being bad, but all the while, he was doing the very things that he counted as sin. In doing so, he made something that is not a sin to be a sin in the eyes of others, and in turn causing the denial of such natural desires that were given by God to actually be sin because it is a rejection of a gift of God.

Something to note is that St. Augustine is considered number two in the church among Catholics and Protestants, that right there should tell you, that there is problem and a need to seek after God through guidance from the Holy Spirit and NOT the standardized church. I know some people fear that they are not smart enough to research and learn, but I’m no genius and have never claimed to be such. My drive to seek God was given by God, He gave me the ability to do the things I do, and I hated reading until I got a desire to know Him and to know I was not going to hell like I had been told so many times by others that follow the standard church. He gave me faith and has made that faith grow more and more over the years. It’s not a matter of smarts, but a matter of love for Elohim. The more you seek, the more the Spirit will reveal to you and you will find others that are likeminded to learn and grow with you, even if they are miles away. The world has many distractions like music and TV, things that are constant noise to drown out that still small voice. You have to have silent time with the Holy Spirit or you will never hear Her voice. I still enjoy these things, but I make sure to make a silent time to listen.

Now back to St. Augustine. St. Augustine’s theology was based off of Gnosticism and the things he taught about sex were lies as well as him being hypocritical while teaching them, right along with teaching things that weren’t biblical and stemmed from his past beliefs in Gnosticism, Neoplatonism, and pagan beliefs. St. Augustine was part of the Latin School of Theology and all the other schools of theology where shunned and shutdown which is why we do not hear about them, Rome was in charge and they forced the belief of the Latin School on all people (there is proof of this in the time of the reformation when Rome came against all Christians and killed so many of them).

It seemed that the concoction of Pagan, Gnostic, and Neoplatonism that Augustine carried with him was just melded into Christianity and has become a religion instead of the Spiritual based faith, the truth of our world and our Creator which is not religion, man created religion. So this is what Paul was referring to at that time, he was preaching against the Gnostic beliefs, they sinned intentionally because they thought that it released the spirit light from their body. This is why he wrote, “shall we continue in sin that grace may abound,” he was preaching against the Gnostics. These are the men that crept in unawares in Jude. This is why sex is seen as a bad thing now days in more ways than not, sex out of marriage is a huge deal today, sex between two women, or two men, it all stems from the Gnostic belief. We also get our theology on Hell, infant baptisms, the thought of women being evil, sexual desire being evil, erections being sinful, and many other things from St. Augustine which are also incorrect, he was one of the many that Jude 1:4 was warning us about. He believed that sin was transferred by seamen and if you were born, you would go to hell if you died a baby before being baptized. Seems like he missed everything that Christ was about.

Here is a document about Eternal Punishment in Augustine’s The City of God: “In many ways, Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430) was the most influential post-Pauline theologian in Christendom…. Any disagreement with his writings is tantamount to heresy, and this applies equally to Catholic and Protestant traditions… Many major themes of Christian thought can be traced to Augustine. These include the Just War theory, the Trinity, and Original Sin. Augustine had a profound influence on the Doctrine of Eternal Punishment.” You can read more of this at: https://soundandsilence.wordpress.com/2009/01/13/eternal-punishment-in-augustine%E2%80%99s-the-city-of-god/

To learn even more about St. Augustine’s beliefs, you can watch this youtube video:  St. Augustine’s Philosophy and Theology

The reason Augustine taught eternal torment, is because he believed the physical was evil and it had to be tortured according to Gnostic theology. He basically tried to interpret the Bible through Gnostic eye glasses so to speak. The teachings stuck from the fourth century because Rome was in power and Rome promoted him and enforced this doctrine on the world, but this has been the age of darkness, the keys to the scripture had been hidden for so long, and now God has allowed the keys to the scriptures, back into the hands of His children. The only place that Rome had no power over was Ethiopia, and the Ethiopian Orthodox Church is the only place that still has the book of Enoch in its canon. Rome did try to go and enforce the canon without Enoch on the Ethiopian Church, which did not work, as well as worshiping on Sunday, but they knew it was wrong, so they apparently did it for short time and then went back to worshiping on Saturday. Rome had wiped the book of Enoch out of every other church canon. The main promoter of the removal of the book of Enoch was St. Augustine, he thought the book was evil. His doctrine was completely satanic, his doctrine came from Manichean Gnosticism, which was preached against by John, Paul, and Jude, and remember Jude told us to remember the book of Enoch. Enoch was forgotten beyond the Ethiopian Church, and still today most Christians refuse to read the book of Enoch, even though it has now been release back into their possession.

1 Timothy 4:1-5 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

Note that here marriage was already a strong belief in the church, but in reading all the Old Testament text, you rarely if ever see one man and one woman in a relationship. Yet, this is another warning, that in the later times, people would forbid to marry as the Catholics require their priests to do(1120 A.D.) and they saw sex as sinful but if they were married they could have sex. The main group that does this is the Western Catholic Church, Rome. When they did this in 1120 A.D, all the priest that were married had to have their marriages annulled, so they ripped apart families. The Latin school of theology taught that it was sinful to have sex, so priest couldn’t have sex or be married in order to be holy. They took so many things that God meant for good and made them appear to be evil. Again, from 1 Timothy 4:3 they took these things that God created for good and forbid them or abstain from them. Note that Jerome went right along with St. Augustine.

Just to point out, hyper Calvinism is the same as Manichean Gnosticism. They think they can sin all they want, they think all they have to do is have faith. Basically, they can sin all week and go to church on Sunday and get right with God. Another thing to point out within all this is that these men (Pharisees) that try to keep themselves from having any desire for sex or women and can’t do so, so they have an inward hate for women. They can’t be freed from women, because of the drive that God gave us, they even said things like the woman is the root of all evil and numerous other things. The woman and Adam ate of the tree.

And do you not know that you are (each) an Eve? The sentence of God on this sex of yours lives in this age: the guilt must, of necessity live too. You are the devil’s gateway: you are the unsealer of that (forbidden) tree: you are the first deserter of the divine law: you are she who persuaded him whom the devil was not valiant enough to attack. You destroyed so easily God’s image, man.     –Tertullian.

Here is a really great study by a brother in Christ pertaining to the same things we are talking about here, that might give you even more insight on how they perceived women and how the devil worked that in, over time. http://www.godrules.net/articles/earlychurch-on-sex.htm

St. Augustine, just like Tertullian looks at woman and sex as evil, but those are lies that the devil swayed them to believe to make the beauty of sexuality that God gave us as a gift, to seem like something awful.

It’s true that many people in the Christian religion believe that lust is bad, and they use Matt. 5:27-28, but there is good and bad terms for lust. Check this out.

What is “lusting”? Most of you have this definition coming to mind “any sexual thought for the opposite sex”. And yes, I used to have the same definition, until, again, I actually studied scripture and Greek to decipher what the term actually meant.

The term means to “covet” or “desire with intent to steal” plain and simple. This Greek word (1937) has no “sexual” connotation to it, as the very same word is used as “desire” in other passages, such as “desire the Office of Bishop…desireth a good work” – 1 Timothy 3:1. Now, do you remember which of the Ten Commandments mentions this type of desire or coveting? Yes, it is the 10th commandment. So, Jesus was quoting the “thou shalt not covet .. thy neighbor’s wife”. Why haven’t you ever heard that before? Doesn’t that make a lot of sense, seeing God is the same, yesterday, today and forever? So, quite literally, Jesus first stated the 7th commandment, “Thou shalt not commit adultery”, then he explained the theology behind the 7th commandment with the 10th commandment, “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife“. He was showing how the people of the day were not looking at the intent behind the 7th commandment.

Here is further proof that Jesus was quoting the 10th of the 10 Commandments:

LXX- Greek Septuagint “γυναικα 1135 του 3588 πλησιον 4139 σου 4675 ουκ 3756 επιθυμησεις 1937 5692” – Exodus 20:17

 

Greek Textus Receptus “γυναικα 1135 προς 4314 το 3588 επιθυμησαι 1937 5658” – Matthew 5:28

Note the same key terms for “woman” and “lust” are present within both passages, showing Christ was paraphrasing the 10th Commandment. The IVP Bible Background Commentary explains:

“The Greek word here is the same as in the opening line of the tenth commandment in the Septuagint (the Greek version of the Old Testament): ‘You shall not desire your neighbor’s wife’ (Exodus 20:17)” – The IVP Bible Background Commentay: New Testament, Matthew 5:27-30

How do we know that the common viewpoint on Matthew 5:27-28 is irreparably in error? Well, if the Greek term “gunh” meant “any woman” and we take the Greek meaning of the term “lust” (which means any desire in general), we discover the passage to be saying literally, “whosoever looks at a woman and desires her has committed adultery in her heart”. Which means you literally cannot desire any woman in general and would have to conclude that all men have sinned being in any relationship with a woman, even if they had the most innocent of “desires”. So, revisiting Jesus’ statement, we see that woman is “wife”, lust is “covet” and adultery is “unlawful intercourse with another man’s wife”. –Godrules.net

So looking back at this passage that they cling to, to make sex and lust bad you can now see that it really means this:

Matthew 5:27-28 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery (unlawful intercourse w/ another man’s wife): But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh (sets mind upon) on a woman (wife) to lust (desire or covet) after her hath committed adultery (unlawful intercourse w/ another man’s wife) with her already in his heart.

Another thing to point out as well since we are talking about lust, is adultery. Here is another bit that will help you understand that a little better.

The “gist” of the term adultery, if you research the Greek and Hebrew it has to do with a “contractual agreement” between you and your wife (wives) or between you and God. This is why adultery can also refer to idolatry (same also with the term “fornication”), as idolatry is a form of cheating on God, by worshipping a false god. So, even though adultery’s original definition takes into consideration polygamy, in the case where you commit yourself only to one woman, you make a contractual agreement with her. So, this means, going out and cheating is equivalent to adultery, even though, technically, it does not fall directly under the definition of adultery. It is the Spirit of the Law, as you can see and the point is, you made a contract with your wife and you are to abide in the contract. –Godrules.net

You can read more on this as well as the above statements about lust, here: http://www.godrules.net/articles/mat5.htm

God made us to have desire for another, be it man or woman that is part of being human.  So amidst all the religion that has come about because of man, this is one thing that has apparently had a lot of influence on it.  I’ll remind you religion is the beguilement of God’s people, none of it is for the good of human kind, it is varying and continuously causes division amongst people, self-mutilation, self-denial of things God meant for good, and there are many other aspects of it. Though there may be churches that support the homeless or do other things for a good cause, if they are religious and not spiritually focus, they are likely one that causes division, and one thing that shows the lack of Christ within, is a place that causes division among people.  Christ ate with sinners, which no one on this earth can say they are not a sinner, we all need our Creator to sustain us and even more so to save us from our own sins, and the fallen angels and the evil they have developed since they made the decision to war against God Himself.

Augustine argued as I stated above, that physical erections are a physical expression of the sin of lust. It’s a natural thing and I’m sure you have noticed that the priests and preachers that deny themselves to fulfill their natural desire end up committing even worse acts because their desire becomes so overwhelming for them, that they end up doing something that actually is bad. Augustine felt that he was a slave to his sexual impulses, because they are natural impulses and he kept denying himself, so he ended up going back and doing what he was teaching was wrong, because it was natural. His concubine even had his son, and he admitted to his sexual happenings throughout his life. He made sex and women his enemy. He felt that this is why the world was corrupt, which he got from Genesis, the statement about being against nature which was all because of the fallen angels coming down and mating with humans. When you read against nature in the story of Sodom, it is stated that way because they were trying to rape angels, it has nothing to do with the fact that they were men, because they were not men, they were angels. You can confirm this if you will read the book of Jasher chapters 18 and 19, and the Bible actually tells you that the book of Jasher is a good book in multiple places as I stated above. It explains the kind of people that were in Sodom. These people might have been bisexual or heterosexual, but they were not homosexuals because it states that they were married. Those people just committed evil acts towards one another and terrible things to those that entered the cities as foreigners. The book of Naphtali also talks about angels and humans. To find anything close to the truth, you have to venture outside of the Biblical canon of today, you have to look in the Greek and Hebrew, and in history in general. The biggest and most important thing is you have to make time to listen to the Spirit, She is wisdom and She will teach you the truth if you will allow Her to do so.

The base points of this study are that there are so many different things that have been construed because of religion.  We have to really dig and make sense of this in the view of God and not the view of man.  We have to see marriage for what it is, it is a legal contract, not one man and one woman.  Sex is not bad, sex outside of the marriage contract is not bad, stealing another person’s husband or wife is bad, and lust is not bad unless it is a lust for another person’s husband or wife with intent to steal.  Adultery is the breaking of the agreement with your wife by going outside the contract basically or even with God by worshiping false gods. God gave us so many things in this life that are meant for good and Lucifer and his followers want to destroy those gifts and us or to make it hard on us in any way they can, because they can’t hurt God physically. God loves His creation so much, that creation being us and the heavenly being as well, the fallen ones want to hurt us in place of seeking to hurt God.

I talked to a friend this past weekend about God and some of the ways we see His character and how difficult it is basically through the fog of what we are given and taught to really see who He is, but our need more than anything is to desire that relationship with our Creator and the Spirit of that Creator, so that we can learn more from the source instead of always just listening and following along like sheep lead astray by wolves. The fact is we do sin, but some of what religion has made out to be sin, is not sin until we follow along with it, because it is denial of God’s gifts, the parable of the talents teaches us this (Matt. 25:14-30). God says again and again in Revelation that we must be overcomers, and we really need to see spiritually as well as physically what He meant by that, we have to overcome the lies of this world, and seek after the truth, God’s truth and not man’s false truth.

So to sum this up, you see that they made women and lust out to be evil, and sex to be bad and of the devil basically. They forced out all the schools of theology but the Latin school of theology. Even after the protestant reformation, they still carried on Augustine’s theology. Augustine is the central reason we have eternal torment in hell, that sex before or outside of marriage is bad, and that any form of desire is bad.  A few of the ways you can learn all this and find the proof of it is by taking an old Strong’s Concordance and a new one and you will see many of the terms have changed meanings (An example would a word like fornication, it meant idolatry and adultery, it did not mean sex before marriage, and orgies meant sacred rites worship (Idolatry) where today it would mean a sex party.), you can look back in the Greek and Hebrew and find many things skewed, and just taking a look at the history of the times and seeing what was going on around these people when they wrote these books will help you see the light in the matter.  Note that the Hebrew Masoretic text is not as accurate as the Greek, it does not match up with the Dead Sea Scrolls, but the Greek does, and the Hebrew Masoretic text is what our Bibles today are based off of. If you have read all the way to this point, something in you is telling you to dig and seek God through the Holy Spirit. So be an overcomer and overcome the lies of religion.

One other thing that I want to reiterate that I’ve covered in my other blogs is Romans 1.

Romans 1:22-25 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

People assume that it is automatically talking about homosexuals here, but we don’t all worship falsely, there are many of us that worship God, we love God. What this is talking about is someone who worships creation and does unclean acts at the same time, so they are basically committing an idolatrous act right along with an adulterous act. This kind of goes back to Genesis where the whole earth is corrupt and then also the book of Enoch where the fallen angels came down, and mated with animals as well as humans.

Romans 1:26-27 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

These people are using sex to worship fallen angels (false gods), it’s idolatry, that is why it is stated that they are working that which is unseemly, this was done in Leviticus 18:21-22 as well, they were having sex in worship to Moloch. The men and women stated in these verses are temple prostitutes or the people in general having sex be it heterosexual sex or homosexual sex, to a false god. So if one human being has sex with another human being, it is not against nature, but if a human has sex with an animal or angel that is against nature. Again, you can read in the books of Enoch, Jasher, and Naphtali about things being against nature. That’s why God said in Genesis 1:24-25 about each beast that he created being with its own kind and God saw that as good. It’s not bad when we are with our own kind, what is seen as bad by God is when we mix with other kinds that are not our own. People try to make it seem liken gays are bad, because of their point of view they have been taught by the corrupt translations that gay is sinful in their eyes just like sex before marriage, they don’t even try to see what is really stated here. If we look at the animals of the world today, you will find many of them that will have sex between two females or two males, but they will not go outside their kind.

And lastly I leave you with this…

2 Timothy 2:15 15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

The Trinity

It is believed and taught that God is all male, let’s think about this though. Let’s look at the verses in the Bible that are read and the true meaning overlooked or certain words translated out and others put in their place to speak of things very differently, by the Scribes and Pharisees and those that stand behind the pulpit, who tell otherwise.

Genesis 1
26 And God saith, `Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness, and let them rule over fish of the sea, and over fowl of the heavens, and over cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that is creeping on the earth.’ 27 And God prepareth the man in His image; in the image of God He prepared him, a male and a female He prepared them.

The trinity does not just consist of a male figure with two other male figures, it consists of a male, a female, and a child or God the Father, Holy Spirit the Mother, and Christ the Child. They are also mind, spirit, and body, as God is the head of things, the Holy Spirit the spirit, and Christ is the body as He did come in the flesh. Which we are also made, Men in the image of God, Women are made as the Holy Spirit, and children are made a child, like Jesus.

Let us “make man” in this sense basically means human kind, which is made in their (Our) image. So we are made in the same image in which our Creator(s) is, we are built just like them. Somehow in all the teachings, just like many other things, we have lost the true meaning of who “God” really is, along with how God is Love and so many other things, over time. Christ said, He would return one day and He has, but people are unaware of Him for the most part. He said, He would be like a thief in the night, you won’t even know He is here and so it is today. People think He will literally descend from a cloud, but that’s not true, people miss the spiritual aspects of things that are given to us Biblically along with the other books that people should be reading, which also plays into this misconception about the Holy Spirit, She is the spiritual aspect of things. She is the Mother, Mary whom gave birth to Jesus here on earth is not the Mother of us all, The Holy Spirit is the Mother of humanity.

Luke 7
33 `For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and ye say, He hath a demon; 34 the Son of Man came eating and drinking, and ye say, Lo, a man, a glutton, and a wine drinker, a friend of tax-gatherers and sinners; 35 and the wisdom was justified from all her children.’

Wisdom is the Holy Spirit, and wisdom should always be spoken of as her or she.

Proverbs 8
Doth not wisdom call? And understanding give forth her voice? 2 At the head of high places by the way, between the paths she hath stood, 3 at the side of the gates, at the mouth of the city, the entrance of the openings, she crieth aloud, 4 `Unto you, O men, I call, And my voice [is] unto the sons of men. 5 Understand, ye simple ones, prudence, and ye fools, understand the heart, 6 Hearken, for noble things I speak, And the opening of my lips [is] uprightness. 7 For truth doth my mouth utter, and an abomination to my lips [is] wickedness. 8 In righteousness [are] all the sayings of my mouth, nothing in them is forward and perverse. 9 All of them [are] plain to the intelligent, And upright to those finding knowledge. 10 Receive my instruction, and not silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold. 11 For better [is] wisdom than rubies, yea, all delights are not comparable with it. 12 I, wisdom, have dwelt with prudence, and a knowledge of devices I find out. 13 The fear of Jehovah [is] to hate evil; Pride, and arrogance, and an evil way, and a forward mouth, I have hated. 14 Mine [is] counsel and substance, I [am] understanding, I have might. 15 By me kings reign, and princes decree righteousness, 16 by me do chiefs rule, and nobles, all judges of the earth. 17 I love those loving me, and those seeking me earnestly do find me. 18 Wealth and honour [are] with me, lasting substance and righteousness. 19 Better [is] my fruit than gold, even fine gold, and mine increase than choice silver. 20 In a path of righteousness I cause to walk, in midst of paths of judgment, 21 to cause my lovers to inherit substance, yea, their treasures I fill. 22 Jehovah possessed me — the beginning of His way, before His works since then. 23 From the age I was anointed, from the first, from former states of the earth. 24 In there being no depths, I was brought forth, In there being no fountains heavy [with] waters, 25 before mountains were sunk, before heights, I was brought forth. 26 While He had not made the earth, and out-places, and the top of the dusts of the world. 27 In His preparing the heavens I [am] there, in His decreeing a circle on the face of the deep, 28 in His strengthening clouds above, in His making strong fountains of the deep, 29 in His setting for the sea its limit, and the waters transgress not His command, in His decreeing the foundations of earth, 30 then I am near Him, a workman, and I am a delight — day by day. Rejoicing before Him at all times, 31 rejoicing in the habitable part of His earth, and my delights [are] with the sons of men. 32 And now, ye sons, hearken to me, yea, happy are they who keep my ways. 33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and slight not. 34 O the happiness of the man hearkening to me, to watch at my doors day by day, to watch at the door-posts of my entrance. 35 For whoso is finding me, hath found life, and bringeth out good-will from Jehovah. 36 And whoso is missing me, is wronging his soul, all hating me have loved death!

This is a really good description of some of the things that she is, and where she was before the world was completely put together.

John 16
7 `But I tell you the truth; it is better for you that I go away, for if I may not go away, the Comforter will not come unto you, and if I go on, I will send Him unto you; 8 and having come, He will convict the world concerning sin, and concerning righteousness, and concerning judgment; 9 concerning sin indeed, because they do not believe in me;

Jesus said, “He must go so that so that the Comforter could come to us.” The He in verses seven and eight was translated from Her, to it, and finally to Him. They changed the word over time. In Genesis 1:2 it says, “the earth hath existed waste and void, and darkness [is] on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God fluttering on the face of the waters.” This confirms the above passage of Proverbs 8 and how the Holy Spirit is describe there.

Another thing I’d like to point out here is that this says, “Concerning sin indeed, because they do not believe in me.” This is pointing out that sin is disbelief, which is why James 2:10 says where you fail at one commandment, you have technically broken them all. We will all break one and likely more than that, but our SIN (singular) is unbelief, which is the core of where the devil deceives us and where the breaking of the commandments is centered.

We also need to realize, that it is hard to know someone who is portrayed to you very differently than they truly are, not only have many of the truths of God been hidden, but the Holy Spirit has been translated and taught as an it or a he when She is our Mother and the Mother of Christ Himself.

James 2 10 for whoever the whole law shall keep, and shall stumble in one [point], he hath become guilty of all;

Isaiah 11 2 Rested on him hath the Spirit of Jehovah, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and might, The spirit of knowledge and fear of Jehovah. 3 To refresh him in the fear of Jehovah, And by the sight of his eyes (She) he judges not, Nor by the hearing of (Her) his ears decides.

There are many different verses that refer to the Spirit as “She” who is Wisdom. In fact the book of Wisdom is another of the many books that were taken away from God’s people and has assisted in leading us away from God and the trinity of who they are three in one. These verses describe the Holy Spirit in a little more detail.

Wisdom 7
22 For wisdom, which is the worker (fashioner) of all things, taught me: for in her is an understanding spirit holy, one only, manifold, subtil, lively, clear, undefiled, plain, not subject to hurt, loving the thing that is good quick, which cannot be letted, ready to do good, 23 Kind to man, steadfast, sure, free from care, having all power, overseeing all things, and going through all understanding, pure, and most subtil, spirits. 24 For wisdom is more moving than any motion: she passeth and goeth through all things by reason of her pureness. 25 For she is the breath of the power of God, and a pure influence flowing from the glory of the Almighty: therefore can no defiled thing fall into her. 26 For she is the brightness of the everlasting light, the unspotted mirror of the power of God, and the image of his goodness. 27 And being but one, she can do all things: and remaining in herself, she maketh all things new: and in all ages entering into holy souls, she maketh them friends of God, and prophets. 28 For God loveth none but him that dwelleth with wisdom. 29 For she is more beautiful than the sun, and above all the order of stars: being compared with the light, she is found before it. 30 For after this cometh night: but vice shall not prevail against wisdom. 8:1 Wisdom reaches from one end to another mightily: and sweetly doth she order all things. 2 I loved her, and sought her out from my youth, I desired to make her my spouse, and I was a lover of her beauty. 3 In that she is conversant with God, she magnifies her nobility: yea, the Lord of all things Himself loved her. 4 For she is privy to the mysteries of the knowledge of God, and a lover of his works. 5 If riches be a possession to be desired in this life; what is richer than wisdom, that works all things?

Let’s talk about the woman and the roll she is to play in comparison to the Holy Spirit and how so many things have been mistranslated because of the fact that they changed the Holy Spirit in some places to a he or it instead of leaving it as she.

1Timothy 2
11 Let a woman in quietness learn in all subjection, 12 and a woman I do not suffer to teach, nor to rule a husband, but to be in quietness, 13 for Adam was first formed, then Eve, 14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman, having been deceived, into transgression came, 15 and she shall be saved through the child-bearing, if they remain in faith, and love, and sanctification, with sobriety.

They did not translate this correctly where they used the word quietness, they should have used the word hidden. The woman was created, hidden inside the man because she was formed from his rib. This also refers to the Holy Spirit as she is hidden inside us and teaches us. So they changed one word and changed the whole meaning of what these verses were meant to say. Women are not to be silent, but to teach. The Mother and the Father are higher in standing and power then the son Christ, as Christ did come from the Father and the Holy Spirit, as she is the Mother of us all. That still small voice of God that speaks to us, is Her, the Holy Spirit. In comparison, the whore of Babylon is loud but the Holy Spirit is the still small voice teaching us lovingly like the Mother that she is to each of us.

Another thing to note here is that back in the times of Christ, when a man would marry a woman he would go away for a year to prepare the home for them and the woman would stay with the her Mother to be prepared for her husband. We (humanity/the church) are referred to throughout scripture as the bride of Christ. So Christ left to go and prepare a place for us, but He left with us, His Mother, the Holy Spirit to guide us along the way while He is preparing our home for us to be with Him.

In a relationship the male is to be selfless to the woman and she to him, he is over her in the way only that he would do anything and everything for the female in the relationship. The same as Christ gave His life for His bride, us.

Again, this is another thing that has been stripped away from the Church, how can you know who She is with all they have taken away and changed, and how can you have a relationship with Her if you do not know who She is.

John 14
26 and the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he (She) will teach you all things, and remind you of all things that I said to you.

There is not Greek term here for this to be translated as a he, and Hebrew which was the original language of God, has this stated as a female. This is even more evidence as to why we need to pray and listen to the Holy Spirit, there are errors that have been translated in, throughout the Bible and we need Her to help us to see through them, to see the truth. We need to seek after God constantly and even more so when we are reading and learning the Word of God. There really is a lot of evidence that the Holy Spirit is a female, you just have to look and acknowledge it, but many people refuse to do so.

This is why I have grown to learn so much about standardized religion, I refuse to be a part of it any longer. I thought for a while that I might get some good things from it and that somehow I could find a church that would provide me the wisdom and truth I was so hungry for, but the truth is that, that wisdom can only be found in the Holy Spirit and my relationship with God, Her, and Christ. Since I started praying more and seeking after the truth and confiding in the Holy Spirit to teach me, I have learned so many things and I’ve heard that still small voice so many times throughout this journey.

The Holy Spirit kept telling me God made you the way you are for a reason, and the church kept telling me I was wrong, an abomination, and going to hell. As you can imagine this was a hard and harsh struggle I had to dig myself free from and it took so many years of struggle for me to see the truth was speaking to me the whole time. I was afraid to listen to the voice of love and sought to listen to man because I thought they were trying to help me. Man is flawed and in error more so than not, which is why anything we read, study, listen to, watch, or talk about with others, needs to be done prayerfully.

Let’s look at a few more verses that were translated incorrectly about the Holy Spirit.

John 14
16 and I will ask the Father, and another Comforter (She) He will give to you, that (She) he may remain with you — to the age; 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world is not able to receive, because it doth not behold (Her) him, nor know (Her) him, and ye know (Her) him, because (She) he doth remain with you, and shall be in you. 18 `I will not leave you bereaved, I come unto you; 19 yet a little, and the world doth no more behold me, and ye behold me, because I live, and ye shall live;

 

Genesis 2:18 points out the helper and comforter is woman, and the Holy Spirit is a helper and a comforter for the church. There are several parallels throughout the Books God has provided us to learn and get to know Him, The Holy Spirit, and Christ.

Proverbs 5
15 Drink waters out of thine own cistern, even flowing ones out of thine own well. 16 Let thy fountains be scattered abroad, in broad places rivulets of waters. 17 Let them be to thee for thyself, and not to strangers with thee. 18 Let thy fountain be blessed, and rejoice because of the wife of thy youth,

Here it is referring to the woman as a well or fountain of water. Then Jesus speaks of the Holy Spirit as well of water or living water.

John 4
5 He cometh, therefore, to a city of Samaria, called Sychar, near to the place that Jacob gave to Joseph his son; 6 and there was there a well of Jacob. Jesus therefore having been weary from the journeying, was sitting thus on the well; it was as it were the sixth hour; 7 there cometh a woman out of Samaria to draw water. Jesus saith to her, `Give me to drink;’ 8 for his disciples were gone away to the city, that they may buy victuals; 9 the Samaritan woman therefore saith to him, `How dost thou, being a Jew, ask drink from me, being a Samaritan woman?’ for Jews have no dealing with Samaritans. 10 Jesus answered and said to her, `If thou hadst known the gift of God, and who it is who is saying to thee, Give me to drink, thou wouldest have asked him, and he would have given thee living water…. 13 Jesus answered and said to her, `Everyone who is drinking of this water shall thirst again; 14 but whoever may drink of the water that I will give him, may not thirst — to the age; and the water that I will give him shall become in him a well of water, springing up to life age-during.’

John7
37 And in the last, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, `If any one doth thirst, let him come unto me and drink; 38 he who is believing in me, according as the Writing said, Rivers out of his belly shall flow of living water;’ 39 and this he said of the Spirit, which those believing in him were about to receive; for not yet was the Holy Spirit, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

The Holy Spirit is here as a Mother for us, to prepare us as a bride for Christ. She is the truth, wisdom, knowledge, comfort, care giver, and so much more to us. She is love, she does not promote fear or pain or suffering, like the whore of Babylon does. She is the guide of the true church, but there is a deceiver, a whore that is a false church that is also out trying to guide the world and the world would rather listen to her lies and step into her suffering than listen to the One God sent for us. There are many now days that appear to be catching on the false church’s chaos and lies, and turning to the truth, but they appear to be few when put up against those who follow the whore.

We need to be mindful of who we are worshiping and following after. Just because a church has a Bible they read from, does not mean they are leading the people to Christ and they tend to miss leading people to the Holy Spirit. If they are unwilling to read the other books and study and learn from them as well, they are likely missing much of what is to be known to us, to help us to know the truth. Even their words can meld around Him and they will still be praying to and worshiping something else. We need to know the truth of who God is, who the Holy Spirit is, and who Christ is to understand the lies of this present religion that calls itself by many different names, but is but one, the whore.

Choose this day whom you will serve, as for me and my house we will serve Christ, we will gain wisdom and knowledge from the Holy Spirit, and we will worship and give praises to God the Father.

Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. Ephesians 5:11

Walk Through Genesis 2 and 3

The more I study and research, the more the Lord reveals to me. We all know the story of Noah’s Ark and that every culture around the world has a flood story. To understand this story of the flood we need to understand how the world was after God made Adam and Eve. This is a little digging I did alongside one of my fellow researchers.

-How can you know the end if you don’t know the beginning?

Isaiah 40:21 Do ye not know — do ye not hear? Hath it not been declared from the first to you? Have ye not understood [From] the foundations of the earth?

Genesis 2
And the heavens and the earth are completed, and all their host; 2 and God completed by the seventh day His work which He has made, and ceased by the seventh day from all His work which He has made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it, for in it He has ceased from all His work which God had prepared for making. 4 These [are] births of the heavens and of the earth in their being prepared, in the day of Jehovah God’s making earth and heavens; 5 and no shrub of the field is yet in the earth, and no herb of the field yet sprouted, for Jehovah God has not rained upon the earth, and a man there is not to serve the ground, 6 and a mist goes up from the earth, and has watered the whole face of the ground.

Book of Adam and Eve
1:1 On the third day, God planted the garden in the east of the earth, on the border of the world eastward, beyond which, towards the sun-rising, one finds nothing but water, that encompasses the whole world, and reaches to the borders of heaven.

When the earth was first formed there was far more land than waters. There in fact where rivers and streams all throughout the land, but the oceans did not yet exist. As we have been taught which is likely true it was one big mass of land when God created it which was surrounded by water according to the Book of Adam and Eve. In the land there were four main rivers that are spoken of in the next several verses that were used to water the lands and the people. It didn’t even rain, there was only a mist that went up from the earth, possibly because most of the waters were being locked away under the earth. Which in recent years it has been discovered that there is indeed a mass of water under the earth’s surface.

Waters under the surface: http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2014/06/16/study-deep-beneath-north-america-theres-more-water-than-in-all-the-oceans-combined/

Genesis 2
7And Jehovah God formed the man — dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils breath of life, and the man became a living creature. 8 And Jehovah God planted a garden in Eden, at the east, and He set there the man whom He had formed; 9 and Jehovah God caused to sprout from the ground every tree desirable for appearance, and good for food, and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 10 And a river is going out from Eden to water the garden, and from thence it is parted, and had become four chief [rivers]; 11 the name of the one [is] Pison, it [is] that which is surrounding the whole land of the Havilah where the gold [is], 12 and the gold of that land [is] good, there [is] the bdolach and the shoham stone; 13 and the name of the second river [is] Gibon, it [is] that which is surrounding the whole land of Cush; 14 and the name of the third river [is] Hiddekel, it [is] that which is going east of Asshur; and the fourth river is Phrat.

One thing to note is that the same word that is used for breath in English, also means spirit in the Hebrew. Adam and Eve were created in the Garden which was the east side of Eden, and when they were kicked out, they also went towards the east according to the book of Adam and Eve.

Genesis 2
15
And Jehovah God took the man, and caused him to rest in the Garden of Eden, to serve it, and to keep it. 16 And Jehovah God laid a charge on the man, saying, `Of every tree of the garden eating you do eat; 17 and of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, you do not eat of it, for in the day of thine eating of it — dying you will die.’

Just like in Genesis 2:17, in the book of Adam and Eve it also indicates that to God one day is a thousand years and a thousand years is a day to God, which was true, because Adam died when he was 930 years old. God did say in this day you will day. This fact is also found in 2 Peter 3:8 and Psalm 90:4 from the accepted cannon, as well as, the Apocryphal books.

Sirach 18:10 As a drop of water unto the sea, and a gravelstone in comparison of the sand; so are a thousand years to the days of eternity. http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/apo/sir018.htm

Genesis 2
18 And Jehovah God said, `It is not good for the man to be alone, I do make for him a helper — as his counterpart.’ 19 And Jehovah God formed from the ground every beast of the field, and every fowl of the heavens, and brought in unto the man, to see what he did call it; and whatever the man called a living creature, that [is] its name. 20 And the man called names to all the cattle, and to fowl of the heavens, and to every beast of the field; and to man has not been found a helper — as his counterpart. 21 And Jehovah God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept, and He took one of his ribs, and closed up flesh in its stead. 22 And Jehovah God built up the rib which He had taken out of the man into a woman, and brought her in unto the man; 23 and the man said, `This [is] the [proper] step! Bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh!’ for this it is called Woman, for from a man has this been taken;

Man and woman are made in God’s image and likeness. One way to look at this is that God made woman out of the inside of man, so she was hidden inside him, just like the Holy Spirit is hidden within us. There are several instances where the Holy Spirit is spoken of and the same terms are used to reference woman. (i.e. Helper, help mate, comforter) You can look at John 14:26 and you have to put this in the context of which it is meant by way of the chapter. If you begin reading the chapter, you get down to verse 14:16 there is a bit of an error. The word he that is in the verse is actually “it” in Greek and in Hebrew its female or woman, they have translated it to be he, but the truth is that it was mean to be she. If you look at other areas in the Bible where the Holy Spirit is reference you see she is wisdom, comfort, and other things that pertain to what God stated is descriptive of a female. Not to mention the scriptures where written in Hebrew, not Greek.

John 14:16 and I will ask the Father, and another Comforter He will give to you, that he may remain with you — to the age;

Genesis 1:26 And God says, `Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness, and let them rule over fish of the sea, and over fowl of the heavens, and over cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that is creeping on the earth.’ 27 And God prepares the man in His image; in the image of God He prepared him, a male and a female He prepared them 24 therefore doth a man leave his father and his mother, and has cleaved unto his wife, and they have become one flesh. 25 And they are both of them naked, the man and his wife, and they are not ashamed of themselves.

We are made in “Our” image, male and female, means that God and the Holy Spirit are also male and female. There are other passages that describe the Holy Spirit that also lead to this conclusion. So it’s not like this is the one verse we have to go on, there are several others. I have actually done a study on that as well.

So, many have used verses in the Bible to try to say that women are to be silent, and this is an actual belief in some Christian denominations. I would imagine they derive it partly from the fact that Eve was apparently the first one to fail, and they are right along with those that think a woman should be under her husband’s finger. Women are not to be silent, they are to be like the Holy Spirit, and they are to teach. Which technically if you look at the job of a preacher, it is a teacher of the congregation or the people, even though I believe that it should be more of a classroom setting where people can share with one another and not a dictator speech and go home kind of thing. So, for people to say that women are to be silent and not speak in church is wrong. They take scripture out of context to state this as fact while in fact it is an indoctrinated teaching that has passed through time, just like so many other teachings.

Before Adam and Eve ate of the tree of good and evil, they were clothed in righteousness, which was likely in a robe of light. Remember when Moses came down from Mount Saini he was glowing, because he stood before God. That is how they could have been clothed at that time. Once they ate of the tree, that was removed and they were naked, which is why God asked them, “who told you, you were naked?” They couldn’t see their nakedness from the glow and they didn’t have clothes on because they made those after they realized they were naked. So, sin dims the light that would have been within us, and it’s been proven that we do glow, but it is so very very little now because of sin, that it cannot be seen by the human eye. Adam and Eve’s bodies began to change beyond just the glow, their eyes and ears couldn’t see and hear as good, and when they ran they would sweat unlike before. These things are told in the Book of Adam and Eve. If the near death experiences we hear about are true, they talk about people being light and being able to see far away and hear really well, like our senses have been dulled and maybe for good reason, being that there is so much suffering in this world because of what people do to each other and because of well ultimately sin.

Genesis 3
And the serpent has been subtil above every beast of the field which Jehovah God has made, and he said unto the woman, `Is it true that God has said, you do not eat of every tree of the garden?’ 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, `Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we do eat, 3 and of the fruit of the tree which [is] in the midst of the garden God has said, you do not eat of it, nor touch it, lest you die.’ 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, `Dying, you do not die, 5 for God does know that in the day of your eating of it — your eyes have been opened, and you have been as God, knowing good and evil.’

Pseudepigraphia – The Apocalypse of Mosis
vii 1 And Adam said to him (Seth): ‘When God made us, me and your mother, through whom also I die, He gave us power to eat of every tree which is in paradise, but, concerning that one only, He charged us not to eat of it, and through this one we are to die. And the hour drew nigh for the angels 2 who were guarding your mother to go up and worship the Lord, and I was far from her, and the enemy knew that she was alone and gave to her, and she ate of the tree of which she had been told not to eat. 3 Then she gave also to me to eat.

Here it states they were in Paradise were we will one day return to after we face the death of this world. People will be sent here and to hades from my understanding once passing. In Hades, they will be refined by God so that they can be reconciled to God once again. This will either be on the Day of Judgment or in a time for which is determined by that person reconciling with God Himself.

The devil has actually, just like hell been translated into one thing when according to the book of Enoch there are five that would be considered in “the devil.” Their names are Yequn, Asbeel, Gadreel, Penemue, and Kasdeyae, they can be found in Enoch 69.4 – 69.12 it tells you what each of them did. Gadreel was the one that seduced Eve with the fruit (from some of my studies, this may not be an actual fruit, just a term used, kind of like fruit of the spirit) of the tree of Good and Evil. One thing that I’m curious about is why they have taken the different places and called them all hell and why the devil has been balled up into be one being. Maybe to make them seem more powerful against us or the fact that they want to pull us as far away from the truth as possible and deceive us which is a given.

Pseudepigraphia – The Apocalypse of Mosis
xiii 1 And Seth went with Eve near paradise, and I they wept there, and prayed God to send his angel and give them the oil of mercy. And God 2 sent the archangel Michael and he spoke to Seth: ‘Seth, man of God, weary not yourself with prayers and entreaties concerning the tree which flows with oil to anoint your father Adam. For it shall not be thine now, but in the end of the times. 3 Then shall all flesh be raised up from Adam till that great day,-all that shall be of the holy people. Then shall the delights of paradise be given to them and God shall be in their midst. And they shall no longer sin before his face, for the evil heart shall be taken from them and there shall be given them a heart understanding the good and to serve God only.

This reiterates what I’ve stated before that all will be saved, some may go through a refining fire of God which does not necessarily mean literal fire, the man that was in hades that Moses and Elijah saw was thirsty and wanted just a drop of water, but was it literal water, or in a spiritual aspect, the water of God’s word. This passage also reiterates that we will one day live forever. Also, for all the self-righteous people out there, this says that once we are in God’s midst we will no longer sin before His face. Here in this world we are not capable of completely righteous. We are to have self-control and strive to love one another and do the best we can to know God and trust God, to grow and accept Him and who He is, but not all will even do that. We are to try, this who going about doing whatever you want regardless of the consequences and then going to church to get your sins forgive is a lie from the devils themselves. Only Christ can forgive, no man can forgive our sins, and no dead man or woman can pray for us nor should we be praying to them. As God gives us a new body, He will also give us a new heart, one with no evil like we have in this world.

Genesis 3
6 And the woman sees that the tree [is] good for food, and that it [is] pleasant to the eyes, and the tree is desirable to make [one] wise, and she takes of its fruit and eats, and gives also to her husband with her, and he does eat; 7 and the eyes of them both are opened, and they know that they [are] naked, and they sew fig-leaves, and make to themselves girdles.

This is where they lost the light as I spoke of earlier. They weren’t wearing clothes, because they had to make them some, but they also didn’t see what they saw before, they noticed things were very different, and they were given a sense of shame and fear as well to even feel that they were naked.

Genesis 3
8 And they hear the sound of Jehovah God walking up and down in the garden at the breeze of the day, and the man and his wife hide themselves from the face of Jehovah God in the midst of the trees of the garden. 9 And Jehovah God called unto the man, and said to him, `Where [art] you?’ 10 and he said, `Your sound I have heard in the garden, and I am afraid, for I am naked, and I hide myself.’ 11 And He said, `Who has declared to thee that you [art] naked? Of the tree of which I have commanded thee not to eat, have you eaten?’ 12 and the man said, `The woman whom You did place with me — she has given to me of the tree — and I do eat.’ 13 And Jehovah God said to the woman, `What [is] this you have done?’ and the woman said, `The serpent has caused me to forget — and I do eat.’ 14 And Jehovah God said unto the serpent, `Because you have done this, cursed [art] you above all the cattle, and above every beast of the field: on your belly do you go, and dust you do eat, all days of your life;

It says that the serpent caused her to forget, but it is used in the Hebrew like this:

Hebrew Word: השׁיאני Pronounce: naw-shaw’ Strong: H5377

Orig: a primitive root; to lead astray, i.e. (mentally) to delude, or (morally) to seduce:–beguile, deceive, X greatly, X utterly.

Either way, he did to Eve what he is doing to most of the world today, beguiling them with religion, which is a false belief, the opposition to the truth which God has given us.

Pseudepigraphia – The Apocalypse of Mosis
x 1 Then Seth and Eve went towards paradise, and Eve saw her son, and a wild beast assailing him, and Eve wept and said: ‘Woe is me; if 2 I come to the day of the Resurrection, all those who have sinned will curse me saying: Eve has not kept the commandment of God.’ And she 3 spoke to the beast: ‘You wicked beast, fear you not to fight with the image of God? How was your mouth opened? How were your teeth made strong? How did you not call to mind your subjection? For long ago were you made subject to the image of God.’ Then the beast 4 cried out and said: xi 1 ‘It is not our concern, Eve, your greed and your wailing, but your own; for (it is) from you that the rule of the beasts has arisen. How was your 2 mouth opened to eat of the tree concerning which God enjoined you not to eat of it? On this account, our nature also has been transformed. Now therefore you cannot endure it, 3 if I begin to reprove you.’

The serpent apparently had feet before this time, but because of what he had done he was made to lie and crawl on his belly. So many things changed when sin enter the world. The animals changed, were at one time none of them ate the meat of another, but after the fall, they began to be meat eaters and attack each other. Apparently here, they were also able to speak, but are no longer able to do so in a way we can understand them at least. Which could be because our senses have been dulled so much.

Genesis 3
15 and enmity I put between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; he does bruise your head, and you do bruise his heel.’

This verse alone has a couple of prophecies within it. One would be the prophecy that Jesus would carry out, by crushing Satan under foot. The other is that it points out that the devil (aka the fallen angels) would have offspring. Those offspring would try to wipe away mankind by corrupting what God made and mating with humans which was forbidden. This again is why Noah was perfect in his day, his DNA was human, not a mix of the fallen angel and human which are Nephilim. God did not destroy bad humans in the flood, He destroyed the Nephilim because they were going to destroy humans which would have killed off the line in which Jesus was to be born. People don’t pay attention to this or put two and two together because they removed the Book of Enoch from the bible and then warned people not to read it. They only keep things from you to hurt you, deceive you, or move you away from God. Oh wait, weren’t we warned of this over and over again? Have we listened?

Genesis 3
16 Unto the woman He said, `Multiplying I multiply your sorrow and your conception, in sorrow do you bear children, and toward your husband [is] your desire, and he does rule over you.’

God’s design with Him, the Holy Spirit, and the Son they do things for each other out of love. Instead of things being done out of love with us because of sin’s presence, we do things out of lust, we seduce each other, or deprive each other. You can see this with the whore of Babylon how she has strived to deceive people and commit wickedness, and the evil man/men trying to control the woman and other people which is a reference to Nimrod as he wanted to rule the world and build the tower to the heavens to try to destroy God. This selfish desire is what destroys families even today.

Genesis 3
17 And to the man He said, `Because you have hearkened to the voice of your wife, and do eat of the tree concerning which I have charged thee, saying, You do not eat of it, cursed [is] the ground on your account; in sorrow you did eat of it all days of your life, 18 and thorn and bramble it does bring forth to you, and you have eaten the herb of the field; 19 by the sweat of your face you do eat bread till your return unto the ground, for out of it have you been taken, for dust you [art], and unto dust you turn back.’

Life of Adam and Eve
http://www.pseudepigrapha.com/pseudepigrapha/slanev.htm
xxxiii 1 Then the devil approached and stood before the oxen, and hindered Adam in tilling the field and said to Adam: ‘Mine are the things of 2 earth, the things of Heaven are God’s; but if you will be mine, you shalt labor on the earth; but if you will be God’s, (pray) go away to paradise.’ Adam said: ‘The things 3 of Heaven are the Lord’s, and the things of earth and Paradise and the whole Universe.’ xxxiv 1 The devil said: ‘I do not suffer you to till the field, except you write the bond that you art mine.’ Adam replied: ‘Whosoever is lord of 2 the earth, to the same do I (belong) and my children.’ Then the devil was overcome with joy. (But Adam was not ignorant that the Lord 3 would descend on earth and tread the devil under foot.) The devil said: ‘Write me your 4 bond.’ And Adam wrote: ‘Who is lord of the earth, to the same do I belong and my children.’

They were tempted by the “devil” and Adam was sly, because he knew that God would descend on this earth and crush the devil under his foot.

Genesis 3
20 And the man called his wife’s name Eve: for she had been mother of all living. 21 And Jehovah God does make to the man and to his wife coats of skin, and does clothe them. 22 And Jehovah God said, `Lo, the man was as one of Us, as to the knowledge of good and evil; and now, lest he send forth his hand, and have taken also of the tree of life, and eaten, and lived to the age,’ — 23 Jehovah God sent him forth from the garden of Eden to serve the ground from which he has been taken; 24 yea, he cast out the man, and caused to dwell at the east of the garden of Eden the cherubs and the flame of the sword which is turning itself round to guard the way of the tree of life.

When the heavens were created the angels were created, and it talks about the fall of the angels on day two. God sent them out of the garden to the east, and he put cherubs up as flaming swords to keep them from the tree of Life. One thing not to overlook throughout these two chapter is that these devils or satan can change how they look which makes them more able to deceive Adam and Eve. It says in several places including the accepted canon. Remember, Satan came as an angel of light. Gadreel came as a serpent which apparently was a beautiful creature then.

Be watchful and prayerful in all you do as you seek to know God. Do not fully listen to man, but listen to God through the Holy Spirit, as He speaks still to this very day to each of us, but it is up to us to sit in the silence to hear His still small voice. There are too many false preachers and teachers out there today and there are signs in the Bible to point these wolves out, like over flowing riches. It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven (Matt. 19:24; Mark 10:25). Anyone notice all the filthy rich television pastors or just rich pastors in general? There is one sign.

Sin of Sodom

The Sin of Sodom

Then there is the story of the destruction of the city of Sodom, (Genesis 18:16-19:29). Sodom has given its name to the now somewhat quaint-sounding term ‘Sodomy’, which originally meant a specific male homosexual sex act. Eventually it was expanded to mean any form of sexual expression which happened to be illegal, including things that married heterosexual couples do every day.

However, a close reading reveals the name to be a bit of a misnomer. To start off, Sodom is described simply as a ‘wicked’ place. Lot, Abraham’s nephew, goes to live there to see if even one righteous person can be found there. The sexual theme starts when two disguised angels visit Lot. A mob, described as consisting of the men of the city, ‘both young and old’, attacks Lot’s house and demands that Lot allow them to ‘know’ (in the language of the KJV) the two men. To ‘know’ is, of course, the famous KJV circumlocution for having sexual intercourse.

The next passage bears closer examination. Lot (Gen 19:8) asks the mob to ‘do’ his two virgin daughters instead, but not the two guests, ‘for … they came under the shadow of my roof.’ The rest of the story is well-known: divine wrath ensues, the mob is blinded, the cities of the plain are destroyed by fire and brimstone while Lot and his family flee, Lot’s wife is turned to a pillar of salt because she looks back, and only Lot and his daughters escape. In an often ignored coda to this story, Lot’s daughters have incest with him by getting him intoxicated, (Gen 19:31), presumably to repopulate the country; a similar motif is found in the story of Noah. As in other Biblical narratives, even the heroes end up committing horrendous sins, driven by circumstances. But many ignore the entire context of the story in the rush to justify their own bigotry.

The sin of the city of Sodom was the originally considered to be the violation of the rights of Lot’s guests. Defining the ‘sin of Sodom’ to be male homosexuality was a later interpretation, which was made by medieval Jewish and Christian writers, as a reaction to Pagan acceptance of homosexuality. Near Eastern hospitality, to this day, implies a responsibility to protect guests under one’s roof. The fact that Lot was ready to make a huge sacrifice by offering up his virgin daughters to the mob instead of his guests underlines this.

There is abundant Haggadah, ancient Jewish folklore, which tells of the cruelty of Sodom to strangers, and their mistreatment of the poor and homeless. Among other stories, travelers are given gold but not food; when they starve to death, everything is stolen including the gold and the clothes off their backs, and their bodies are left to rot. One of Lot’s unfortunate daughters is burned to death for the crime of giving a starving man food. Another woman who assists a poor man is smeared with honey and left to be stung to death by bees. Some of these stories are suffused with dark comedic twists. A poor man is assaulted and robbed. Eliezar, a servant of Abraham, is hit on the head when he intervenes. A judge rules that he must pay his assailant for medical treatment! (Bleeding was considered a surgical procedure). Eliezar then hits the judge on the head, drawing blood, and tells the judge to pay his fine. See Ginzburg’s Legends of the Jews and Polano’s The Talmud: Selections, for many more stories along the same lines. After reading these, I guarantee you’ll be rooting for the Lord to rain down the brimstone on the cities of the plain…

There are also numerous Biblical passages warning about mistreating strangers, (with the story of Lot being implied), for instance this one in the NT: “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” [Heb. 13:2]

Between the original concept of a violation of the law of hospitality and the medieval focus on a particular sexual act, there is an intermediate stage where Sodom was criticized for other reasons entirely. Where Sodom is mentioned in later books of the Tanach and in the New Testament, it is used as an example of a city which was corrupted by luxury, lacking in values such as charity and humility. Nowhere is this made clearer than in Ezekiel 16:48-50, where Ezekiel, speaking for ‘the Lord God’, enumerates the sins of Sodom: “Saith the Lord GOD…Behold, this was the iniquity of … Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness … neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good”.

Note that in this context ‘abomination’ means human sacrifice and idol worship, not shared tax breaks for long-term same-sex couples, or sexual practices you can see on cable after 10 o’clock. Furthermore, ‘abomination’ is at the end of the laundry list. The primary sin of Sodom, by this account, was that their society was materialistic, greedy and uncharitable. Social and economic justice is a thread that runs through the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament alike, and it is not difficult to extrapolate this to modern struggles for equality, such as those of LGBT people. When governmental and religious institutions and their leaders perpetuate oppression, it would not be farfetched to say that they are committing the actual sin of Sodom.

Jude 7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication (They have changed the meanings of the words over the centuries the 17th century meaning of fornication or porneia in English meant idolatry and prostitution, it has been changed.), and going after strange flesh (Idolatry or going after another species of flesh. Sodom was completely ungodly they were cruel people and they tried to rape angels which is the reference to strange flesh non-human flesh (aka not gay)), are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

2 Peter 6 and having reduced [the] cities of Sodom and Gomorrha (S&G complete rebelled against God’s will. If someone came into those cities, they would beat them and laugh at them, rob them, chain them and watch them starve to death, not to mention going after strange flesh (angels). They raped and kill etc. In fact Lot’s daughter got killed by a Sodomite, because she felt compassion for a beggar that they chained up to allow him to starve and die. (Jasher 18:11 – 19:53)) to ashes, condemned [them] with an overthrow, setting [them as] an example to those that should [afterwards] live an ungodly life;

Ezekiel 16:49 – 50
[This is several different translations all together as I have added the different terms in parenthesis. Notice not one mentions homosexuality.]
Behold, this was the iniquity (guilt/sin) of you sister Sodom; pride (arrogance), fullness of bread (excess of food), and prosperous ease (abundance of idleness) was in here and in her daughters; neither did she strengthen (aid) the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.

Genesis 19
1 And in the evening there came two [a]Angels to Sodom: and Lot sat at the gate of Sodom, and Lot saw them, and rose up to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face to the ground.

2 And he said, See my lords, I pray you turn in now into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early and go your ways. Who said, Nay, but we will abide in the street all night.

3 Then [b]he pressed upon them earnestly (Why do you think Lot bid them to not stay in the streets? He was trying to protect them from what is spoken of in Jasher they raped travelers, starved them, stole from them, and etc. every kind of cruelty you could imagine.), and they turned in to him, and came to his house, and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they [c]did eat.

[Along with all the cruelty they showed travelers, they also killed one of Lot’s daughters for helping a man in need of food. They raped their own women and swapped them off several times a year. The sin of Sodom was not homosexuality by any means.]

Genesis 19
4 But before they went to bed, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom compassed the house round about, from the young even to the old, [d]all the people from all quarters.

5 Who crying unto Lot said to him, Where are the men, which came to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

6 Then Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,

7 And said, I pray you, my brethren, do not so wickedly.

8 Behold now, I have two [e]daughters, which have not known man: them will I bring out now unto you, and do them as seemeth you good: only unto these men do nothing: [f]for therefore are they come under the shadow of my roof.

9 Then they said, Away hence: and they said, He is come alone as a stranger, and shall he judge and rule? we will now deal worse with thee than with them. So they pressed sore upon Lot himself, and came to break the door.

10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.

[Lot offered them his daughters, because they were human at the very least, as well as in those times, the protection you were to have over the guests of your house. Near Eastern hospitality, to this day, implies a responsibility to protect guests under one’s roof. The fact that Lot was ready to make a huge sacrifice by offering up his virgin daughters to the mob instead of his guests underlines this.]

God Repented

God was sorry/regretted/repented…so here we learn the meaning of repented. (the verse comparisons are listed below, different translations different words)

A repentant heart does not mean a perfect heart, but one that strives to do what is right according to God. If you are repentant, you are sorry for your sins, you regret that you have done them, and to ask for forgiveness of them, as well as strive to live as God would have you live, using the commandments as a guide line for your life. Above all you should love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself (Luke 10:27; Matthew 22:37; Deut. 6:5; Mark 12:30).

Some people say that it’s an instant change in a person, but they should instantly be completely perfect and righteous. Some say it’s a process, and God works in you over time to make you more like Him.

My experience and opinion towards this is that there is an instant change, the desires of your heart do change, you become eager to be like Him, but you will fail many times, before you become even close to being like Him, otherwise there would be no need for trials or tribulations in our lives, because we wouldn’t need them. God disciplines those who are His (Heb 12:6; Proverbs 3:12; Acts 17:11). There would be no need for this if we were instantly perfect/righteous. We are righteous via Jesus, when God judges us and looks upon us, it is Christ He will see, but as far as a literal state of our being, we are not perfect and righteous. This is where self righteousness comes in to play, people who think they are perfect or completely righteous are self righteous and there is purging that must be done in them by The Holy Spirit, to remove this. The Bible says that none are righteous, no not one, besides Jesus Christ, He is the only righteous one (Romans 3:10; Eccl. 7:20).

Hence why you come as you are! There is not a change in you that is expected to be perfect, but a life light that will help you through life and help you grow to be a better person than you once were. If you had or did know me before, the person I was and the person I am are polar opposites. I was not a good person, and even in the ways I was, they were nothing to what I have and will become. I might have been good in comparison to myself in some ways, but when put up against God was vile and filthy, even at my best and I still am. I am a work in progress and will continue to be so until I get to go home.

Job: Satan in the meeting with God in heaven

I was asked the question about a month ago as to how satan was in the meeting in heaven in Job 1, when he has been cast out of heaven. Here is what the Holy Spirit revealed to me. All the () are my additions to what I was given about this, scripture is labeled.

Job 1:6 When the day came (doesn’t say it was that time, but a future time) for the heavenly beings to appear before the Lord, Satan was there among them. 7The Lord asked him, “What have you been (past tense) doing?” Satan answered, “I have been walking here and there, roaming round the earth.”

(This is a metaphor/mystery/parable of what the devil has been doing over time and not literal. Job could have possibly been a real person and the devil could have tested him literally (God gives us these stories in the mystery to help us see (spiritually and understand) what is and has been going on, so from what I can tell this seems like a witness to us of what would be going on until God cast the devil out of heaven in the end literally to earth.)

Satan met with God in the meeting because he has not yet been fully cast out of heaven. There are levels of heaven and he is in the third until the last age (which is the air of this world upper atmosphere possibly what we can see of space (which is referred to as the heavens) as the Bible also refers to angels as stars) until he is cast down to earth to reign as the (there are many antichrist) final anitchrist. The Bible is not written in a literal way, it is a mystery that the carnal mind cannot understand and only the Holy Spirit can reveal the answers to us. It’s written in symbology and parables. (i.e. clouds are “Crowds” or groups of people.; wheat and tares, the wheat are children of God tares children of the devil) It’s also not written in a strict order, things that are spoken of in the beginning (Genesis) did not necessarily happen at that moment. (i.e. Job is said to be the oldest book)

Revelation 12:7-12
Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, who fought back with his angels; 8but the dragon was defeated, and he and his angels were not allowed to stay in heaven any longer (so he is still in third heaven until the end times when God casts him literally to earth).

Dan 10.13-21(This speaks on the war in heaven.)
Dan 12.1 (Mt 24.21Mk 13.19Rev 7.14)
The angel wearing linen clothes said, “At that time the great angel Michael, who guards your people, will appear. Then there will be a time of troubles, the worst since nations first came into existence. When that time comes, all the people of your nation whose names are written in God’s book will be saved.
(Is 26.19Mt 25.46Jn 5.29)
Many of those who have already died will live again: some will enjoy eternal (for an age/or time Greek αἰώνιον/aionos) life, and some will suffer eternal (for an age/or time Greek: aionos) disgrace. 3The wise leaders will shine with all the brightness of the sky. And those who have taught many people to do what is right will shine like the stars forever (from the terms used in the Greek this literally means forever).”
Jude 9 (Michael and the devil warring or arguing over who would have the body of Moses.)

Gen 3.1 (this was the beginning of the war as satan came down and seduced Eve, he was not cast down yet) The huge dragon was thrown out — that ancient serpent, called the Devil, or Satan, that deceived the whole world. He was thrown down to earth, and all his angels with him.
Zech 3.1 In another vision the Lord showed me the High Priest Joshua standing before the angel of the Lord. And there beside Joshua stood Satan, ready to bring an accusation against him. (See he does this throughout the Bible and History (HIStory God’s story) Job gave us a summary of what the devil would be doing as the ages passed until the last age, our age.
2The angel of the Lord said to Satan, “May the Lord condemn you, Satan! May the Lord, who loves Jerusalem, condemn you. This man is like a stick snatched from the fire.”
3Joshua was standing there, wearing filthy clothes. 4The angel said to his heavenly attendants, “Take away the filthy clothes this man is wearing.” Then he said to Joshua, “I have taken away your sin (sin singular, what we are all born with) and will give you new clothes to wear.”He commanded the attendants to put a clean turban on Joshua’s head.
(Here is symology used this is a representation of what Jesus would do for the world. This “angel” was more than likely Jesus, as He alone is the only one who can take away our sin.)

Revelation 12:9
Then I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, “Now God’s salvation has come! Now God has shown his power as King! Now his Messiah has shown his authority! For the one (satan) who stood before our God and accused our brothers and sisters day and night has been thrown out of heaven. 11Our brothers and sisters won the victory over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the truth which they proclaimed; and they were willing to give up their lives and die. 12And so be glad, you heavens, and all you that live there! But how terrible for the earth and the sea (false religious leaders/children of satan)! For the Devil has come down to you, and he is filled with rage, because he knows that he has only a little time left.”
(This is the last hour, the times which we are in now, so God cast him down to embody the one that will be the antichrist. There are many antichrist spirits that have been on the earth over the years, but the last will be the first just as God says of us.)

Sea – is usually a reference to peoples.
Wind – false doctrines, religions, religious orders of any kind. (i.e. I am not religious, I have a relationship with my Father who is in Heaven, through my Savior/Jesus who gives me life, and Holy Spirit/Teacher who give me truth/wisdom/God’s knowledge.)

In Mark all the verses in this chapter are parables, so even though this one is not titled as such in most translation, it is that same as the others, a parable. This is the mystery Jesus did not speak literally much; He mostly spoke in parables so that only those who are of God can be given the meanings through the Holy Spirit.

Mark 4:39 Jesus stood up and commanded the wind, “Be quiet!” and he said to the waves (sea), “Be still!” The wind died down, and there was a great calm.
(Again this may have actually happened, but it is also a message to us that Jesus will rebuke false teachings, give peace to his people. He reiterates over and over throughout His Word that He will be victorious and we need to follow Him, because all else are false lies of the devil. He is the only One who will bring peace, He is the only Savior, and the only One who will stand in our place and take our sin.)
