UNRAVELING THE GREAT MYSTERY: PART 5

Exodus 20:12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you.

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.

Jeremiah 17:10 I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.

So the “Sun” is a masculine attribute that is attributed to the “Father” and the “Moon” is a feminine one that is attributed to the “Mother” which guides us in times of doubt or darkness. Hence we get the family in Josephs dream.

Genesis 37:9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

10 So he told it to his father and his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, “What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?”

Where the Sun and Moon are parental figures the children are attributed as Stars. In times long ago many more stars were viewable in the night sky then they are today.

Genesis 15:5 Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.”

Where the Sun is the testing of enlightenment the Moon is the reflections of truth we see within our spirit, but the Stars are the child lights that guide our actions. Many times in scriptures a star serves as a guide often attributed as an angel. The word “Angel” means “Messenger” or “Message” so at the level of the soul stars are a truth that guides us along the path of enlightenment.

Revelation 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches.

I find it interesting that most people seem to miss this simple concept especially when seeing the star that leads the Magi to the Christ child. After all how many stars do you know can walk and stand over a specific person?

Matthew 29 When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was.

Now each person is a mirror of truth and thus we too are being made into guiding lights as “Angels“.

Luke 20:36 nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.

Basically everything of the inner-world reflects a higher truth of heaven.

Matthew 18:10 “Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 6:10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.

Matthew 16:19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

What is built here also builds a mirrored image of that same enlightenment in the higher-state of consciousness. Basically what this means is what you learn by doing things here builds up truths that are greater than the actions you’ve done. Everything you do has a spiritual significance even if you don’t immediately recognize them at the time.

Matthew 25:40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

So the mind is about knowledge, and the heart is about relational wisdom, but the body is about actions and experiences. Each attribute works together to create a whole being that understands the greater truths of life. The spiritual aspects of the family are quite profound in their impact. Each attribute is still part of you and the process of enlightenment and yet each characteristic has its own part to play.

  • The Father leads,
  • the Mother guides
  • and the Child builds.

The name for “Son” in scriptures means “To build” as the son builds the house. Now this is not about a male person but a belief that is trying to grow into a greater truth as the “Father“. Again we are reading this as though we are looking at the world of the soul and not at the world of real men. At this level each masculine attribute is a driving force of enlightenment and each feminine attribute is a form of reasoning and relating to the masculine ideal. So we are trying to see each conceptual truth as a masculine block of knowledge trying to build up attributes of greater understanding and thus become enlightened truths like stars.

You see men or sons referred to as stones many times in scriptures. Look at the baptisms of John the Baptist for example.

Matthew 3:9 and do not think to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.

Each stone is a building block of information in the house of the soul. Each block builds upon another to form more complex ideals or truths of understanding. This is a congregation of the mind and a counsel of voices all giving you guidance in the choices you make. One truth stacks upon each other and together they form the consciousness that we are gathering for ascension into the higher-state-of-being called “Heaven” or “Sky“. The more enlightened a truth is the more the mind is lifted up to a new state of understanding, so we are building up a castle in the sky called the “Kingdom of Heaven“.

Matthew 6:10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.

Matthew 13:11 He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given

The “Kingdom of Heaven” is the “State of Enlightenment“. Remember we are all accounted as stones.

1 Peter 2:5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

John 14:2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Many stones of living truth make many aspects of understanding thus we are as the descendants of Abraham that number like the stars. If we take many truths and sort them together you get not only a building but a city since each stone is really a “person” or a “personal truth“. Many personal truths that gather in unity make for an understanding. An understanding in the Bible then is likened to a “City” or a “Kingdom“. Truthfully, in the Bible, any gathering of people to one place is a state of understanding thus the “Kingdom of Heaven” is a “State of Enlightenment” as it is about gathering together your enlightened truths like children to their Father’s house. Remember God is the Lord or King and the enlightened people are being made into Angels or Stars. So this is all about gaining truths through experience and testing them to see if they are worthy of being enlightened ideals that can come together in unity and create a state of higher understanding, thus called the “Kingdom of Heaven“.

Unfortunately when we try to bring together our own ideals without testing them first as being sons of the higher-self they are then often not really a solid truth at all and will not stack properly when tested by the light of the Sun or rather the rationale of the higher-mind. Time has a funny way of testing what we believe and thus the Sun has cycles in which things are tested by, but until an ideal concept can be tested and shaped as solid truth it is often heaped together with other faulty concepts and we try to call this righteousness. But the Kingdom of Heaven will not support faulty ideals (sons) as they will shatter and wither when tested by the light of God (Sun) and Father of the inner-world. This is the essence of the Tower of Babel in scriptures. It is a story about taking the faulty ideals we have and forming them into bricks of assumed perfection rather than using true refined beliefs of shaped and enduring stones.

THE TOWER OF BABEL

Genesis 11:1-9
1 Now the whole earth had one language and one speech.
2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.
3 Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar.
4 And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”
5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.
6 And the LORD said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.
7 Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.
9 Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.

Let’s go ahead and break this down so it makes more sense.

Genesis 11:1 Now the whole earth had one language and one speech.

Remember you are the world and you have one understanding within you when you apply yourself to a single cause. This one understanding is attributed as a language in your inner-world, but when your understanding is lost then the states of consciousness can no longer communicate properly and your understanding and peace are shattered.

Genesis 11:2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.

Shinar means: country of two rivers

Remember that water is the flow of consciousness and this flow is divided into two channels of thought. This is the division of truth where a choice must be made but in this state of being a decision is made to dwell here rather than make a decision that leads one way or another. In other words these truths are not sorted as being enlightened or basic desires.

Genesis 11:3 Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar.

The word used for “Brick” here is “lĕbenah” which comes from the name and word Laban which means “white“. Laban is the idea of perfection and these bricks are ideals that are gathered together to suit a purpose. Basically it is as if you took all the things you know and said “I know enough. I’m perfect as I am” so you gather together your beliefs to one purpose and call it “Truth“. But you are not perfect as you are and what you think you know is often not really refined into solid truths but rather temporary understandings posing as good ideas. So these bricks of assumed perfection are held together with “Slime“. Basically these thoughts do not actually line up nor stack up in your mind but you force them together with whatever you can think of to make them stick. Maybe we’ll call it the slime of “Close enough“. Notice in the Bible that no temple of the Lord is made with brick of slime. It is all made of refined truths as stones that fit perfectly together without any adhesives. Perfect truths endure but temporary ones will fall to ruins in time.

Genesis 11:4 And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”

So like most people we try to make a name for ourselves and gather our understanding to accomplish whatever task we set our mind to. We think we have it all figured out so then nothing can stop us. So we build up our truths to heaven as if these are enlightened ideals to guide our perceptions and decisions upon.

Genesis 11:5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.
6 And the LORD said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.

So the higher-mind observes this state of understanding and sees the faulty perceptions being built up and says:

Genesis 11:7 Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”

Again this is NOT about real people at this level but about you understanding what you are doing. With no real truth or enlightenment to guide you are only making a fool of yourself to believe you understand anything. And to put your efforts into nothing you will only accomplish chaos. But to a mind without discernment even the chaos may seem like wise counsel and you will make the same mistakes again and again. But this is about the path of true enlightenment and by this part of the manual of truth we know better than to believe that we have it all figured out so we play God with our higher understanding and confuse the voices within to stop making you think that you have it all together and figured out. So the understandings of your objectives are scattered until real truths can be assembled and built up anew, but until that time this state of understanding will no longer stand as being believed as truth.

Genesis 11:8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.

This faulty belief system only leads to one thing and that’s confusion. If you are basing your life on bad information then everything that is to come will not make proper sense. Much like your reading of the Bible prior to these studies where much of these stories did not make sense, but with the clarity that comes from laying out a solid foundation then everything becomes much more clear. But until then this is the example of the state of “Confusion” as that is what “Babel” means. Confusion is the enemy of righteousness and peace. Without true understanding you will always be a slave to the fear of darkness of death called “ignorance” as only “enlightenment” is the truth that brings the state of “eternal life“.

Genesis 11:9 Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.

These truths ultimately will be gathered together again as a temple of ultimate truth that will later become known as Christ or Emmanuel which means “God with us“. This means the higher truth is as the “Son” which is the refined building blocks of the greater truth of the Temple of the Soul. In time Christ will come and build the “House” of the “King” and there will be a lasting “Peace” called “Jerusalem” also known as the “Kingdom or Heaven”. So we are built as “sons” or “stones” in a “house” or “city” made of enlightened truths called “stars” that dwell in the sky called “heaven“. So thus we are “angels” and “messengers” to the world below to gather our “Brothers” to enlightenment so we can be as one understandingJesus is the temple of the Lord.

Mark 14:58 “We heard Him say, ‘I will destroy this temple made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.’ “
