Jesus is a personal symbol of the Holy Spirit. Having been totally healed by the Holy Spirit, Jesus became one with him. Every thought, action, and deed of Jesus was guided by the Holy Spirit instead of ego.
Today we use symbols as icons on our computers, phones and other visually interactive devices. The symbolic nature of things are a running theme that is found in every culture in the world and even the Bible itself is not exempt from iconic meaning. But to those that learn to read the deeper meanings in the words it is like watching a caterpillar take flight before your eyes, where the words of the stories change into much needed truths about life. It takes a little time and effort to learn but it will change everything you think you know into something new and wonderful… and can’t we all use a little more real wonder these days in a time filled with so much trivial make-believe? Imagine knowing God personally by knowing the truth that He has hidden in all of His creation… as well as maybe discovering its meaning.
After all imagery is the spirit’s language of the soul, so don’t be fooled, if you are not a student of the icons and their meanings… then you’re still just another face who’s lost in the crowd.
10 And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do You speak to them in parables?”
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.
12 For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.
13 Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.
14 And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: ‘ Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, And seeing you will see and not perceive;
15 For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed, Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.’
16 But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear;
17 for assuredly, I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.
