UNRAVELING THE GREAT MYSTERY: PART 6

The Biblical Macrocosm & Microcosm

When we read the Bible there are a great many things that are not understood primarily because there is no reference to yourself to make them make sense. As humans we see the universe from a very narrow perspective and miss the greater picture because we can only understand things from a perspective of ourselves. So God gives us a glimpse into the universal order called the “Cosmos” by allowing us to see what truth really is by reflecting these attributes of ourselves into everything. Basically we are a “Microcosm” of the greater “Macrocosm” called the “Universe”. So to understand the truth in everything we must first start from the only perspective we can truly relate to and that is our “Self” or the “I Am“. From this view of looking within you can see the universal order all around you. Continue reading

Genesis 1:16 Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also.

Psalms 84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.

The harsh source of enlightenment in scriptures is often called the “Sun” which too is attributed as the “Mind” that test each thing we believe in to refine it and sort it into its place in the house of the soul. Continue reading

TESTING YOUR BELIEFS

Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

The battles we face each day are generally not those against other people. The greatest battles you will fight involves only one person, and that’s the one fought within yourself. Remember you are the world and as such all the world is reflected inside you. Your soul is a compilation of many voices all calling out to you for control. Ever thing you do is influenced by the voices of the demons of your past that battle for your future and shatter your now. Continue reading

Lost and lonelyUNRAVELING THE GREAT MYSTERY: PART 3

I have decided to break this specific definition down into a few parts to make it easier to digest.

“The children tend to the fields of the soul & build temples though they are blind.”

Now this is a reference in part to you, me and everybody as we are blind to the truth that surrounds us. In fact we have been blind to the truth from the beginning and only now are we starting to see the light. God has given us a great mystery hidden in the lives of the people He chose. The ancient Hebrews that were chosen by God to carry the line of Christ and chronicled in the Torah, Tanakh and Bible are not His elect people simply because they are more righteous than anyone else. It is because they are “chosen” to be the harbingers of the mystery itself. Their lives were chosen to carry a message. From the places they went to, to the names of their children a message was being written in their lives, hidden even from them that lived it. It took many generations and thousands of years for this story to be told but only for it to fall on deaf ears. Continue reading

4 The earth longingly looks to the sky.”

Now it is important to remember that this line is not about the earth you physically live in, again this is about your soul. Now before this can make proper sense you have to understand that the world is divided into 3 major structures in the Bible.

THE FAMILY:

THE HOUSE

To understand this division we need to see a family as living in a house. Now this house too is the soul. You will see the soul referred to as several things in scriptures but a house is mentioned predominately and many times over as it is the cognitive state in which you are dwelling in. The soul is the center of your being that your truths reside in and it is the state of your understandings that determines everything from your foundations of your beliefs on up to everything you will believe in. The soul is a construct of many ideas that you have gathered from the world outside of you; all built up one-upon-another. This is much like a computer’s filing system as blocks or segments of knowledge. Continue reading

UNRAVELING THE GREAT MYSTERY: PART 1

star brass1UNRAVELING THE GREAT MYSTERY: PART 1

There is a great mystery hidden in the Bible if you choose to believe it exists or not. Most people have become so severely indoctrinated by their religious dogmatic views that the prospect of there being something more may seem ludicrous to their limited perspectives, yet didn’t even Christ Himself face opposition when trying to explain to the nation of His “Chosen” that they had it wrong? What if after all these generations we are still not seeing the big picture and suffering ourselves to yet another type of bondage without finding true freedom even in this modern age? There is more to salvation than you may think and it is not in the rules we believe it takes to find it. It is in understanding this life and it’s greater purpose. God did not leave us to wonder in the dark without solid guidance to lead us. He speaks to you even now, not in a supernatural way but in a very real and very practical one through the words of the Bible itself. You will not find it in the pretext of the stories you read but rather it is hidden in the context as a language of symbols, and when you learn the rules of how to read this “Sign language of the soul” the entire book will suddenly transform from a book of stories and rules into a manual of peace through a process of steps of enlightenment known as “Days” that are a lineage of progenerative progressive steps in the path to righteousness called the “Messiah” or “Christ“.


A mystery wanting to be hidden will continue to elude,
A mystery wanting to be solved will always present more clues.

If you are reading this then you are seeking answers that you could not find anywhere else. So to you the seeker I dedicate this study…

GROWING INTO A MAN:

When does a child cease to be a child and become a man?
When he can look down on his problems, instead of looking up to them.

What does any good parent want for their children? To grow up and to know the things they know.

On the path to becoming a man you must first look up to your father before you can look down to your sons. So our Father gives us a story book to illustrate what it means to grow up, and hidden in the pictures of the story are the keys to the castle. For when you are a man fully grown you will inherit the kingdom of your Father and gain the peace of a happy home. Continue reading

BIBLICAL SYMBOLS TREES

When most people read the Bible there seems to be a limitation to their understanding based on certain symbols used in the Scriptures. The stories are easy enough to read, but it is often hard to understand some of the deeper meanings if you do not understand the significance of symbolic items used such as: garments, trees, mountains, lakes, animals, etc. When you can understand the significance of these items you will gain a greater clarity into your studies. What symbolic truth can we learn from this word?

050313_2323_2.jpg

TREES:
Different tree types represent different aspects of truth.

  • Trees: To make a firm understanding: Knowledge (Male)
  • Fruit: To produce, to be fruitful: A relevant truth called “Wisdom” (Female)
  • Seeds: to do, sow or scatter moral quality: The possibilities & potential that lead to “Actions & Understanding” (Child)
  • Forest/Garden: To Counsel or Consider truth.

The tree is the central structure of the home and often accounted to represent “life-force” but Biblically speaking it is the growth structure of truth that holds our home of the soul together. This is the growth process of knowledge that leads to love and understanding. There are many trees mentioned throughout the Holy Scriptures, each representing an understanding gained through life. Each tree brings about a new perspective we harvest to give us counsel to make better informed decision. The trees are also likened to individual people as each person too is an extension of this same process as each person you meet will give you counsel and thus plant a seed that will grow a knowledge into a wise understanding.

The Sacred Number 40:

f4ischer f4ischer.wordpress.com

40- is such a theme throughout the bible!

 You are very right f4ischer!

The Number 40:

There are in fact several numbers that are a running theme throughout the Holy Scriptures and each has a different meaning, but every time God is preparing someone for something important He seems to use the number 40 to do it. Look at the life of Moses for instance, whose life was divided into three equal groups of 40. For 40 years he lived as an adopted son of Egypt and then for 40 years he lived in freedom as the son-in-law of the Hebrew Jethro. And then for the last 40 years of his life he wandered in the wilderness after saving his people from bondage of Egypt, thus living a full life of man of 120 years such as God spoke of in Genesis 6:3.

The number 40 is actually a composition of multiples of 4 though the character ‘mem’ (40) מ should simply be sufficient as the Hebraic written language uses aleph-beyt (Alphabet) characters to represent numbers. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that both the Hebrew people as well as Oriental cultures used to use 4 and 40 as well as 7 or 70 as a type of round number like the number 10. But perhaps it also has a bit to do with the significance of the power in the number 4 itself. Let me explain. Continue reading

Growing Fruit in the Colors of Love

Matthew 13: The Parable of the Sower

1 On the same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the sea. 2 And great multitudes were gathered together to Him, so that He got into a boat and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.

3 Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying: “Behold, a sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them. 5 Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth. 6 But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them. 8 But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 9 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

What if your whole life was a lie told to blind you to the truth, and the only way to uncover the true mystery was to seek the answers beneath the surface of what you think you know? Continue reading

GROWTH OF THE SOUL

Exodus 13:2
“Consecrate to Me all the firstborn, whatever opens the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and beast; it is Mine.”

Life starts with a thrust and a shove into a cold world of confusion where only moments before you thought you had it all figured out. Your life before birth was somewhat confining and restrictive but it was at least comfortable for a time, and it was simple and easy. But like a child we cannot stay in one state for too long before we grow too much and too big to be confined into a single state of developing grace, and when change happens, it often comes quickly, painfully and messy.

And it often comes with a lot of screaming because of the fear and uncertainty of the changes that had come. The funny thing is, since you were born, none of that process of growth has changed. Continue reading

“Living Large” Does size matter?

Your life is not meant to be a life of nothingness. It is meant to be a life of amazing things. Not a busy life of trivialities seeking empty vain things that amount to nothing, but one of courage and strength found desirable and worthy by a God of greatness! The word meekness in the Bible does not mean weakness but humbleness and smallness of ego. Size does not make one great but the stature of spirit does. Size in Biblical times was perceived much like it is today. The perception of greatness comes in how large a man is perceived. Prominence is symbolic in our understanding as the greater the man is of importance, the larger he is depicted in the effigies of him. So the bigger a person was the greater they were perceived to be favored with God. Continue reading

Seeing the World of God

These are the foundations that will unlock the Bible in a way you never knew existed.


Seeing the World
of God

Through the last few sections we have learned that in the universal mirror we call truth we see that we are the world both outside and in. They are two reflections working together in tandem that build up your understanding. The Earth or World in the Holy Scriptures represent your ego and your assembled consciousness that forms the central clockwork of construct that all things are built-up from within you. When you can learn to rule your inner-world as a conqueror of it then the true King will find His place upon the throne within the kingdoms of your soul. Remember the kingdoms of the soul are simply mental and emotional states of being. Anytime a location is mentioned in the Bible it is meant to reflect back a truth about the state-of-being it represents. And when you can master each state of your consciousness then freedom will fully rule you as a King and God will bestow the crown of righteousness upon His mighty conqueror. Continue reading

Strong’s G1473 – egō:
I, me, my

“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.”
~ Anaïs Nin

The ego, it is a very powerful and dangerous thing, and it is an all-encompassing shroud that blinds the inner eye from true seeing. We are all dominated by a self-imposed prison of the mind and soul by an image of what we believe the world should be. It is many layers of beliefs constructed one upon another and built of our own making to better serve our own personal needs. The ego is the inner-world of your understanding that manifests your identity into a reality, and it is the essence of you that perceives the world in everything. It is the essence of the self-identity and it is the balancing scale on which all things are weighed and measured upon, and it is the altar of which all of your life’s sacrifices are made unto. Even your religion is often a reflection of your own self and an armed extension of your own beliefs that are mutually beneficial and shared amongst others of like minds. There is simply not a single way to run from the you that is you. Every action you take is ruled by the beliefs you have accumulated throughout your lifetime. Ever conscious and unconscious thought is made by a tower of observations constructed from the millions of life lessons that this world has afforded you. These are the inner workings and understandings that you know simply as “I” or “me” and even “we”. Continue reading

Self-Recognition

Self-Recognition

Exodus 38:8
He made the laver of bronze and its base of bronze, from the bronze mirrors of the serving women who assembled at the door of the tabernacle of meeting.

It is a hard task to face your true reflection and bare your soul naked in the universal mirror of truths and still see the reflection of God staring back at you. It is especially hard when the world is screaming out your name and calling you in a hundred different directions, but to remove the veil that blinds your heart you must first quiet the noise of the world inside you. In the Bible the spirit is represented as water, and in this water we see our true self reflected in the Spirit of God, and all the noise in you disrupts the Spirit’s divine reflection and the image of God is shattered within. To see the face of something is an analogy to understanding the thing it is that you face, and It is only when we are calm and clear headed that we dare look into the face of God reflected back from inside you. To see the face of God is to truly know yourself because you are in harmony with His creation and you can see yourself as God sees you in the reflection of spirit that many call Holy Water. Once you can master your calm in spirit then you can look and see God in the form of an understanding of yourself, and this true reflection will reveal His purpose for your life. Continue reading

Chinese whispers[1] is one of the names for a game played around the world, in which one person whispers a message to another, which is passed through a line of people until the last player announces the message to the entire group. Errors typically accumulate in the retellings, so the statement announced by the last player differs significantly, and often amusingly, from the one uttered by the first. Some players also deliberately alter what is being said in order to guarantee a changed message by the end of it. Continue reading

To Be Something More!


Have you ever wanted your life to be something more,

something greater and bigger than the life you’re living now, or the old life you lived in the past? Is it even possible to be more than yourself; to be more than what the world taught you to be? If I followed the path of life that I was on before, I would be a very different man than I am today. But I didn’t. Life took a dramatic turn for me and handed me a new direction that I never thought or expected to be possible. The philosophies that I built my old life upon were flawed but now I want to be a better person. I want to love more and complain less. Try harder; work harder, but not so much as to lose sight of the simple things that make life so beautiful. I want more close friends and fewer enemies. I want to appreciate this life not only for what it is, but also for the possibilities it presents, and also for those that are hidden from my everyday view. I want my choices to always be right; I want to always do the right thing, even when no one else is looking. And if my choices can’t be right, then I want them to be made for the right reasons. I know life is hard sometimes, but I choose not to make it harder by playing a fool. I find I play the fool too many times in my own life. I make choices based on my feelings at the moment rather than what I know to be right in my heart. Continue reading

So if you like this post there is actually quite a bit more in the series called “Unraveling the Great Mystery” that I plan to turn into a video series once we get a few donations to cover the modest costs… till then please enjoy the reads and please share. If you don’t share the mystery dies here. God bless.

A TIME FOR EVERYTHING

 

Ecclesiastes 3: 1 To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:

For those of you wondering why this site has been so quiet for the last few months, the answer is research. The aspects of the Bible we have been working with are unprecedented anywhere else in church history and it takes time to figure out what is really happening hidden in the Word of God. In the meantime I have also started working on a podcast series chronicling the truths thus far gained. This is all done voluntarily and all expenses have been out of our own pocket. It’s a big undertaking but it is all for the betterment of the lives of those touched by the truth and done purely in love. We appreciate your commitment to understanding and your patience. I know I have started several series in the past and have not quite finished following through on them. To that I am sorry, but that is because so much of what is being uncovered is dynamic and more clarity helps paint a better picture that is not complete by the series I started before. I apologies but this is all necessary to unraveling the mystery. I do however assure you the new podcast series is very thorough and extremely enlightening. I am by far better at explaining in person than I am at writing. Between writing, research, graphics and promoting it takes a toll on you. So for now I will dedicate the bulk of my efforts to the studies and the audio series and then revisit the written content after that. I hope you can understand the effort and sacrifices being made and I assure you we have not forgotten our loyal readers. As soon as the podcast are made available I will post links here.

 

Thank you again and many blessings.

There are times where it becomes so abundantly obvious how delicate a creature we are. Not just physically, but emotionally and mentally. Sometimes it only takes the smallest event, word, act, or gesture to push us over the edge. And when you’ve been reminded time and time again of how fragile you are, you tend to build up defenses to protect yourself.

When you have finally cut away the cause of your injury and have begun the healing process, you can still be surprised at how these damages make themselves known. For a while they will hide and lie dormant. Then, when least expected, they make it clear that they are more deeply rooted than you may have imagined. And sometimes it can scare you to see how deep those hidden roots are. While you seem stronger than you have in years, you begin to doubt yourself, your actions, your…

Tonight is one of those moments.  The day just seemed very…. full.  As things pick up at work, the day flies by.  Before you know it, you’re five minutes past your quitting time and making a list of things that have to be done tomorrow.  And coming home doesn’t always mean you’ll get a break.  There’s laundry to be washed, dinner to be made, plants to try to save from the Arizona heat, a puppy to contend with, and a dozen other things that should be done.  And with what time?  Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day.

I was in your shoes once. Scared, hopeless, and hanging on by a thread. Do you want a word of advice? Keep hanging on! There is some merit to the saying “It can only get better”. But let’s be realistic. You and I both know that it can get worse before it gets better. Truth be told, it does get worse. You will be pushed to your breaking point. You will bend. You will break. Something will shut off inside of you. But it does get better. So much better!

You are going to be judged. You are going to be pitied. You are going to be ridiculed. You are going to get angry at those who didn’t reach out and you are going to get angry at those who do reach out. When you hear “We could see what was going on,” learn to bite your tongue. You are…

I found this online and I have to say I am not too happy about it. Sure the people there dress a little funny and their property could use a little cleaning up but do they really need to be harassed for being organic?

http://wearechange.org/swat-team-raids-organic-farm-confiscates-blueberries/

 

Now I personally am not there yet with the whole “organic” thing but each day I see more and more reason to move somewhat in that direction. I still eat meat from the store and buy food out of the “organic” section to save money. I hear arguments on both sides about one is better than another or that there is no difference. Either way, wouldn’t it be great to grow your own food? I am seeing increased concerns about food shortages and a serious lack of natural resources verses the population’s growth and consumption.

“The Hebrew word for holy is kodesh, which means separate, set apart. As Balaam, the gentile prophet, stated, ‘It is a people that shall dwell apart’ (Num. 23:9). The modern connotation of holy misses this, relating the word to being worthy of adoration. It is no wonder the Talmud likens the translation of the Hebrew Bible into other languages to a lion locked in a cage, comparing it to the destruction of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem.” Continue reading
