“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

HONORING A GREAT KING
I saw an article on MSN yesterday talking how almost all the roads in the US that are named after Mr. Martin Luther King Jr. were some of the most impoverished and violent streets in America. There is one man however trying to recapture the memory of his dream (Melvin White) by taking away the division and making all people rise up in friendship and with mutual understanding and to make the streets in his honor yet serve to honor him rather than disrespect the sacrifice of his life. I have personally witnessed many of these roads in amazement, fear and frustration. How can such a great man have so many people that claim to honor him with their mouth but yet be so far away from him in their hearts and deeds and bring such shame upon his memory?… Hmm, sounds familiar.

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
So far there have been some very interesting answers to these 40 questions about the Bible. Some are very well informed and others are typical of what many people have been taught growing up. Unfortunately, much of what you might think you know in your studies are embellishments meant to make the stories more interesting but most are not factual at all or based on other things outside of the Bible. So let’s revisit these 40 questions and see how well you did. Continue reading
Here are 40 questions to see how well you were taught the Bible.
According to the Bible:
- What kind of fruit did Eve eat?
- Where was Adam when Eve took the fruit from the tree?
- What sort of clothes did they wear in the garden?
- What was Jonas swallowed by?
- What were Noah’s neighbors doing while he built the ark? Continue reading

Understanding Fidelity and Unification:
Foundations and Structure:
As we study deeper into the hidden truths of the Bible we can start to see a pattern forming in Zephaniah 1:1 where we are establishing an order of a thought process that will teach us a greater truth that starts from the kingdom of Judah. At this level of understanding we also know that Judah is not a physical location but an emotional and mental state of order formed in exaltation. A nation in the Bible is much like a mountain where we take many stones of truths stacked upon another to form a type of cast system or governing understanding. Each stone that forms the house or temple are a solid truth assembled in your consciousness, and each stone has its own voice as it came from someone in your life. When you learn something new that truth you gained builds up a part of who you are and will create the basis of all you stand for. If you were taught simple and solid principals in life you would have a solid foundation and a structured life. Notice the words I chose to explain your consciousness: Foundations and Structure. Many of these basic spiritual truths the Bible is built up from are still with us only masked and mixed into our daily lives but are no longer central in our focus. That is because our lives have become extremely noisy and filled with mass quantities of useless trivialities that amount to nothing but noise in your consciousness. And the more you subjugate yourself to the noise the more desensitized you become to the greater structures that build a solid house of understanding. For this reason alone were the Ancient Hebrews instructed not to marry outside of their faith as each person is a stone of truth at the level of the souls understanding.
Marriage is more than a bond of the flesh at the subconscious level. It is a unity and bonding between two greater understandings that unify into one solid truth. So if the nation of Israel paired to like understandings they formed a greater structure of pure consciousness, as all people are no longer physical people but faculties of your soul. And to marry outside of the pure understanding meant it would cloud your judgments with faulty information and the whole structure would become tainted. So the only way to remedy the situation was to purge that person from the pure governing nation, or rather the higher order of assembled truths.
Stones: Truth, Voices, People
Mountain: Cast system, Government, Assembled Truths, A State of Higher Consciousness (sometimes becoming a sense of pride)
One of the biggest problems people experience today is that each stone of our celestial house called the soul or consciousness has a voice. And each voice has no way of controlling its volume. These voices are truths and memories of things we learned in life and they all scream out with their own loudness, all competing for your attention. This creates a state of noise and confusion that leads your internal governing order astray as we find ourselves trying to please each voice that we hear the loudest at that moment. But remember that these voices or truths are not real and do not need to be appeased, but the problem is we often give these voices a face that tends to appear in our dreams on a subconscious level and they sometimes seem to haunt us.
When you dream you may see a person that you recognize in real life and so you assume the dream relates to that person, but in reality it often does not. People at the subconscious level are the minds way of interpreting a truth that closely resembles a thought or feeling you acquired from that person you are manifesting, but it does not mean it is actually them. They are only a simplified representation of something that relates to what it is your mind is trying to sort out. Essentially your mind is a machine, and like your personal computer it uses icons to convey an attribute of understanding quickly. Sometimes it can be the fact you championed someone in real life so they manifest themselves in your subconscious to be something you feel requires justice.
Dreams are a funny thing in that they help your subconscious communicate with your higher brain and this is ironically how the higher truths hidden in the Bible are revealed by a very similar transliteration process. Many of the prophets were visited in dreams and they could also translate them back as well. This is the essence of the language of the soul and you will quickly learn that as your lessons go you will start to be able to decipher the dreams of the prophets as well as the dreams of others. Self-dreams are often a little harder to translate until you can learn to break the dream down into its major parts and then they will draw themselves out clearly. It’s like painting with brush strokes. The larger strokes of color give shape to the image and the smaller strokes give it details. And like in our dreams if we learn something new our mind often has to find a way to sort through what it already knows and then tries to place the new information into the greater consciousness like moving files around in a drawer. Unfortunately our thoughts have depth and weight to them so they are something more akin to moving bricks around in a house. So if you feed your subconscious useless information it has to find a place to sort in these new factoids. Often times things are filled with redundancies and we grow desensitized to them as they just continue to pack into like locations in the subconscious. Unfortunately what you learn has to go somewhere, so if you are filling your mind with useless information and if it is not understood as useless it may get sorted alongside more important truths that give us structure. So then the solid truth is not seen clearly and altered to accommodate the new useless information that has been sorted with it.
It’s like many Christians are prone to fear dream interpretations because it seems to relate too much to New Age beliefs, or they embrace the dreams as being something profound and prophetic that will change their life. To which both may be correct to some extent but they are now mutated from what they really mean because this information is packed in too closely to other beliefs that seem related. So now it’s hard to distinguish which is the right path to follow. Do I join to this belief or separate from it? In truth dreams are usually just the subconscious’ way of sorting out something the higher brain is dealing with and seldom does it have anything to do with a prophetic nature. But keeping an open mind a spirit to the dreams that stand out more than others might give you more insight into a path that should be followed. Now before we continue it might help once again to clear your mind and heart and to calm your body and let God open you up to what it is He is trying to teach you. Meditate on what you learn and allow it to work its way through all you know to help you sort through the stones of truths you have built up inside you. When you are calm and clear headed let’s continue.
The mountains of information we gather form elaborate landscapes in our inner-world. These mounting governing truths are the building up of information that resemble a nation or kingdom of the soul you know as a “state of being”. In learning to rule our mounting beliefs we too conquer the pride that is often associated with these higher ideals, thus Jesus tells us we can command mountains to throw themselves into the sea. It’s simply a process of erasing a set of faulty beliefs.
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done.
Because a mountain is a set of ascending mounted beliefs it gives elevation to your consciousness when you ascend above and rule that state of consciousness. So often you will read about spiritual leaders in the Bible often climbing a mountain to grow closer to God. It simply means they ascend into a higher plain of consciousness and rule over the baser order that raised up that train a of thought, thus giving truth to order. This cast system is the essence of a pyramid in ancient Egypt. It simply refers to an order of government ruled by a single stone on top and supported by the descending order below, resting on the support of the lowest common denominator as the serving class, often represented as slaves. The pyramidal order of a mountain is our higher sense of governing all the other truths that support that leading thought. But in the Bible the order of man is reversed to the spirit and a king is last and the servants is first, so a physical king mirrors a founding truth that supports all else that follows. Remember this is about a mirror of spiritual growth and not the physical understanding the world taught you. In the divine order, to be humble and small makes for greatness and prominence in the spirit so thus the first shall be last and the last shall be first.
But many who are first will be last, and the last first.
This is the essence of the Star of David which is two triangles or pyramids in reflection and unified to a single cause.
So if what we know creates harmony and unity it helps to sort through what we learn and fill our souls with better truths that we can build upon and not so many trivialities. You can see how this gathering of outside information can easily contaminate the whole by looking at the life of Solomon, the wisest of all men and his many wives and lovers, and see how it led to his fall in the end. It was once believed that a kingdom was an extension of its king and as we are each a house and a kingdom of higher understanding, so we too mirror the kingdoms of the world. In this instance however we are embodying the kingdom of Jerusalem, the city of Solomon and of which both share the same root meaning in their names.
Strong’s H8010 – Shĕlomoh
Part of Speech
proper masculine noun
Root Word (Etymology)
From שָׁלוֹם (H7965)
Outline of Biblical Usage
Solomon = “peace”
1) son of David by Bathsheba and 3rd king of Israel; author of Proverbs and Song of Songs
Strong’s H3389 – Yĕruwshalaim
Part of Speech
proper locative noun
Root Word (Etymology)
A dual (in allusion to its two main hills [the true pointing, at least of the former reading, seems to be that of יְרוּשְׁלֵם (H3390)]), probably from (the passive participle of) יָרָה (H3384) and שָׁלַם (H7999)
Outline of Biblical Usage
Jerusalem = “teaching of peace”
1) the chief city of Palestine and capital of the united kingdom and the nation of Judah after the split
Peace is actually a form of wholeness-of-self more than it is a type of comfort and rest, but it becomes something akin to it when you are centered and accepting of yourself, your situation, etc. When you are in agreement with all things around you then you find a sense of balance and ease. This is the essence of the construction of your higher ideals in a house or consciousness made of solid truths. This wholeness-of-self that is also associated as peace is represented by a number in most major religions as the number ten (This is where tithes come from). Most cultures use numbers to represent various attributes of life. So if the number ten is wholeness then there must be many other factors or stages that lead up to the number ten. In this case it is represented in the number of wives and concubine Solomon has joined himself to. Remember this is no longer a focus on the physical attributes of the story but a hidden truth that is underlining the stories. So Solomon is no longer a man but a thought or belief like we learned in the previous lessons. And a man joins to a woman and thus the two become one flesh. But let us look at the word used for flesh in the Torah or Old Testament.
Strong’s H1320 – basar
Part of Speech
Root Word (Etymology)
From בָּשַׂר (H1319)
Outline of Biblical Usage
a) of the body
1) of humans
2) of animals
b) the body itself
c) male organ of generation (euphemism)
d) kindred, blood-relations
e) flesh as frail or erring (man against God)
f) all living things
The word used for flesh is basar which is easily translated as flesh, but what happens when we see where the word comes from by looking at its root word that forms it.
Strong’s H1319 – basar
Part of Speech
Root Word (Etymology)
A primitive root
Outline of Biblical Usage
1)to bear news, bear tidings, publish, preach, show forth
1) to gladden with good news
2) to bear news
3) to announce (salvation) as good news, preach
b) (Hithpael) to receive good news
The root word of basar is also basar! It is essentially the same word with only a slight inflectional difference, but the meanings are substantially different! This same word has transformed from flesh into a news, a tidings, or to preach. Basically it is a teaching or as we more commonly know it as “truth”. Truth you also know very well in your studies as Jesus at the level of the soul, therefore we eat His “FLESH” during a sacrament because it is the essence of “TRUTH“. When Jesus offers up the bread and calls it His “flesh” to His disciples He is actually telling them to eat of the “Greater Truth” that establishes order in the world. But the word used for world here yet again is “kosmos” and as we studied before that the word Cosmos means the order of the universe, thus a “Order of consciousness” or as you might know it as “Universal Harmony“, which is also known as “Wholeness-of-self” or “Peace“.
Lesson Assignment 1:
With what you have just learned go ahead and try and read this passage in John 6:51 and see if you can do the transliteration of it into a higher truth.
I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”
Perhaps it would help if I give a little more information to make this previous passage more clear. Biblically speaking bread is very similar to a nation in that it is the gathering of many elements of consciousness into one body. The wheat has a nut that is likened unto your soul and grows until ripened and then harvested.
For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head.
The harvesting of souls is actually the gathering of consciousness. Remember you are the world so a field is an open state of your consciousness and a plain or level ground is neither a state of self-elevation or lowness-of-self. Being neither high nor low means you are open and at a level of understanding that is not mixed with pride or depression. A mountain is a higher understanding of gathered truths, and a valley or chasm is the absence of enlightenment. So when the wheat grows in an open field it symbolizes the harvesting of level truths or more commonly known as “balance“. If you consider that in the book of Isaiah the grass is yet again referred to as “flesh” or “basar” meaning “teachings” or “truth“, and by eating of the “grass” we are in fact eating of the “flesh” which is another way of saying that you are consuming knowledge.
The voice said, “Cry out!” And he said, “What shall I cry?” “All flesh is grass, And all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.
When spiritual bread is made it is a process of waiting for the truth to mature from the order of the world (Cosmos), then harvesting it and preparing it for consumption. The process of making bread is very symbolic as it is the same process it takes to gain truths in life. Unfortunately I do not want to take us too far off track at this point and will simplify the explanation as many processes of growth, preparation, and sacrifices; all working together to assemble a unified consciousness or a single truth that metaphorically resembles a loaf of bread, an assembled body, or a church that forms together to make the body of Jesus Christ; all of which point to a single assembled truth and understanding that comes by way of the greater sacrifices of life.
so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.
The unification of a body of believers is actually the gathering of consciousness into one greater truth thus we are becoming one mind, body and spirit in the Lord.
2 Corinthians 13:11
Finally, brethren, farewell. Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.
Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common.
So if at the level of the soul we assemble together our life’s experiences into one greater truth then the passage in John 6:51 has changed into a message of a way in which to gain enlightenment by way of consuming a collective understanding learned by others, thus creating order and harmony within.
Lesson Assignment 2:
Now that you have a little more enlightenment into the bread and what it means to assemble your life’s experiences into one form of greater truth, then go ahead and try to read and translate John 6:15. Here are a few other transliteration keys that may help with the process.
Ego (I): Self-awareness.
Zoe (Life/Living): Vitality and essence of the soul.
Bread: Learned truths (gathered and learned only through sacrifices of persistence and determination).
Heaven: Higher state of consciousness.
Man: Thought or Belief.
Eat: Gain strength of understanding.
For+ Ever: Towards + perpetual world (eternal consciousness).
World: Divine order of harmony, peace and understanding.
|Jhn 6:51||I 1473 am 1510 the living 2198 bread 740 which 3588 came down 2597 from 1537 heaven 3772: if 1437 any man 5100 eat 5315 of 1537 this 5127 bread 740, he shall live 2198 for 1519 ever 165: and 1161
2532 the bread 740 that 3739 I 1473 will give 1325 is 2076 my 3450 flesh 4561, which 3739 I 1473 will give 1325 for 5228 the life 2222 of the world 2889.
Transliteration of John 6:51:
So if you did the leg work you should come up with something like what I wrote below. Don’t worry if you do not get the same results, I have a few more years of experience at this. Just be patient and in time it will all start to make sense. So if you read John 6:15 again with the transliteration keys it should break down to read something more like this:
(ego) Of self-awareness exists the essence and vitality of a greater truth of consciousness which comes down from a higher state of understanding. If your self-awareness consumes of these greater truths, then those beliefs will gain vitality towards a perpetual understanding of a higher order; and the greater truth of consciousness that I shall give is for the (zōē) vitality and essence of the (kosmos) divine order of harmony, peace and understanding.
I highly encourage you to check these translations yourself using the tools I have shown you in the last several lessons as it will greatly help in the process of your growth in discipleship to the hidden truths of Jesus. Either way we yet again see that God is telling us that the truth is within us already but making sense of it is a process to uncover. The problem is that we do not fill our minds and hearts with pure spiritual foods to grow on. So we look back to Solomon who is the wisest of men who had seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines.
Heaven, Earth and Water:
Seven is God’s cardinal holy number which refers to an oath or promise that we will look into deeper in later lessons and we will also look at the number three that is a number that associates closely to the physical-self that embodies contentions or vitality of your baser understandings. For now we will simply associate them as your heaven and earth. Heaven, at the level of the soul, is not a place but a state of a higher understanding, and earth is a primitive or more common set of truths we follow that mirror our physical body. We know these better as the superego and the id which are balanced out by the ego. These attributes we will look more closely at in future lessons as well but to understand the balance of family we need to get the basic idea. So heaven is easier understood as superego which is the higher state of the mind. The earth is the primitive understanding of the baser-self called the id that acts just like your body and flees from pain and seeks comfort and pleasure. Lastly there are the waters which we know as spirit or truth that are easily associated with the ego. These three attributes are the same characteristics that form the order or balances of the cosmos we learned in lesson 2 as the microcosm analogy of mind, body and spirit syncing up to a family, and also a kingdom, and then to God, thus it is the order of the Cosmos. So if we are all three major attributes of mind, spirit and body we are then a mirror of the world (cosmos) reflected in Heaven, Waters and Earth, and we are also a family of Father, Mother, and Children. I know this may sounds a little complicated but in time it will make more sense. For now try to remember these trans-literal associations to help with later studies.
- Mind: Head, Father, King, Heaven, God, Sun = Thought
- Spirit: Heart, Mother, Church, Water, Holy Spirit, Moon = Wisdom
- Body: Stomach, Child, Nation, Earth, Jesus, Stars = Actions
Solomon and the Marriage of Truth:
Just as a man is depicted as a ruling thought or belief a woman too has a part to play on the subconscious level. Women are often depicted as wisdom throughout the entire Bible, especially in the book of proverbs.
Wisdom calls aloud outside; She raises her voice in the open squares.
So when a man, whom we already know to be a thought or belief, marries to a woman it is then the act of joining two attributes of the higher-self into one resulting understanding. When thought joins itself to a wisdom it brings about a resulting action or a continuing establishment of a thought process, thus you get a line of succession like in Zephaniah 1:1. But as Solomon is the ruling thought it means that wholeness-of-self or peace has joined itself to the power of ten in wisdom, thus seven hundred wives (Heaven) and three hundred concubines (Earth). When your wholeness or peace is divided it leads your heart astray and your peace is shattered. So it is what you fill your house with that keeps you in balance and in the state of wholeness, or your heart will be led astray in the pursuit of other truths. And when your mind is joined to impure pursuits of the heart the entire process breaks down and all resulting offspring of that union will be out of balance and the system shuts down until correction can be made. This is why Jesus is the only path to righteousness. It means that fidelity to God’s higher truth is the only path to correctness/righteousness and all other ways lead to err in the system that we know as sinfulness.
So it is what we consume that creates order and brings balance to our spirit as one unified thought process and anything else leads to excessive noise that causes ripples in the waters of truth thus shattering the whole or harmonious perfect reflection of God within. Noise in the soul leads to chaos, but internal peace is found in the wholeness we call being sound or resolute to a unified cause. So the choice is then yours to make, do you try to unify your thoughts into a harmonious order, or do you allow the voices of the world to call and pull you in many different direction and lose your way? One solution leads to peace, all else leads to being out of sync with the love of God.
Lesson Assignment 3:
Let’s wrap this lesson up with a summary on the establishing of truths and see if you can take this verse in Genesis 2:24 and do a transliteration with the information you have gained so far?
|Gen 2:24||Therefore 3651 shall a man 376 leave 5800 his father 1 and his mother 517, and shall cleave 1692 unto his wife 802: and they shall be one 259
Man: Thought or Belief.
Father: Established Thought or Belief
Woman: Wisdom, Feelings or Insights
Mother: Established Wisdom, Feelings or Insights
Flesh: Understanding or Truth
