40 Answers about the Bible you didn’t know.

40 Answers of truth

According to the Bible:

1. What kind of fruit did Eve eat?

The fruit type is not given. It only mentions that she ate from the fruit of the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. However, the fruit is classically depicted as an apple because the seeds of an apple are mildly poisonous but whenever the word “apple” is used in the scriptures, such as “you are the apple of my eye” it is referring to the black center of the pupil, meaning “you are the focus of my attention”. If a fruit were to be more closely associated as the fruit of Knowledge of Good and Evil it would most likely be a fig as it grows two crops of fruit, one is bitter and the one is sweet, hence symbolic of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. But even though Adam and Eve fastened aprons of fig leaves thus depicting “I understand that I am naked or shameful” but yet it does not name the fruit of the tree specifically so the fruit is yet unknown. But consider this, the sap of fig leaves is VERY acidic and would burn even tough skin… would that be what you want on your VERY sensitive skin? So, my guess is the fig leaves are symbolic of the tree they ate from, otherwise I think I might find kinder leaves to cover with.

2. Where was Adam when Eve took the fruit from the tree?

It seems he was right there with her the entire time she was being convinced by the serpent to eat the fruit.

Gen 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

3. What sort of clothes did they wear in the garden?

They wore no clothes in the garden before the fruit as they were unaware of their faults or shamefulness, but post fruit they wore aprons of fig leaves until the Lord fashioned unnamed animal skins into garments for them. Symbolically your inner-garments or tunic are a covering of fine linen that represent the truths you fashion together to cover your faults or shame, but the outer-garment is usually more rough and made of animal hair or skin that depicts your true animal/beast nature. The animal is much like your personality characteristics and can also depict your profession or trade. Like John the Baptist wore a camel hair coat and a leather belt, or Joseph wore a robe of many colors that was torn and taken from him. Every culture uses animals to represent a spiritual truth about its possessor. From Kung Fu styles, to a coat of arms, we align ourselves with an animal that best depicts what our lifestyle best represents.

4. What was Jonas swallowed by?

The different translations of the Bible say different things and it varies from a huge fish to a whale or even a sea monster. The main beast that seems to stalk the seas is the leviathan and many stories attribute this creature to being a whale, but if you read Job 41 or Isaiah 27:1 you may get a much different picture of the sea beast that is NOT a whale!

Isaiah 27:1 In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.

The leviathan is a beast of the sea that seems to be a terror to ships and fish alike. Symbolically the fish are lost souls as potential waiting to be found. The leviathan does not give up its spoils easily and haunts the seas to keep, would be, traders and fishers at bay. But as fishers of men we gather from the depths the potential treasure of souls and bring them into the light and away from the beast of the raging seas.

5. What were Noah’s neighbors doing while he built the ark?

There is no mention of Noah ever having neighbors. God told Noah to build an ark and so he did, the rest is simply embellishment to make the story more endearing and relatable.

6. What did Mary ride into Bethlehem while pregnant?

There is no mention of any such event in the Bible.

7. What were the nationalities of the “wise men”?

All the Bible says is they were from the east. There are many additions added to this story but none that are from the Bible itself.

8. What animals did they ride?

There is no mention of any animals ridden.

9. How many “magi” were there?

This number varies from 2-25 but the truth is there is no mention of numbers (Only that there was more than one), we just use the 3 gift types mentioned as a best guess.

10. Were the magi kings?

There is no mention of this in scriptures. Some may take different passages to infer it, but that is only speculation.

11. What were their names?

The names of the Magi are not mentioned anywhere in the Bible.

12. How old was Jesus when they arrived?

Unknown, it only says He was a child.

13. How did they find the Christ child?

They followed a star from the east that lead them to a single location and then it stood over the child.

14. What kind of star can be followed and can also stand over a single child?

Following a star to a single point is an impossibility, as it would be too far away to triangulate. Try to stand directly under the moon at night to see what I mean; it is too far away to make a solid determination of the exact location it would be marking. Alternatively the angels of the Bible are often depicted as stars even though it does not come outright and say an angel is a star. The word angel means “messenger” and it is most likely they followed the messenger or angel of the Lord to the child king.

15. What was the name of the daughter of Herodias that danced for the head of John the Baptist’s?

Traditionally she is called “Salomé” (Why I do not know) but the name of Herodias daughter is never given in the Bible.

16. What was the name of her dance?

Somehow this dance has become known as the “Dance of the Seven Veils” but this is not mentioned anywhere in scriptures.

17. What was Jesus’ occupation?

In the life of Jesus He took on almost every occupation in one form or another. From teacher, to shepherd, to king and much more but, He is typically known as a carpenter. However this title is not exactly accurate. The word used for carpenter has a very wide scope in definition and it is harder to nail down than you might think.

I. a worker in wood, a carpenter, joiner, builder

A. a ship’s carpenter or builder

II. any craftsman, or workman

the art of poetry, maker of songs

III. a planner, contriver, plotter

an author

All of these attributes lead to a planner and builder but, the root word comes from something more akin to someone whom assists, helps, guards and avenges. Most theologians today attribute His occupation as something more like an architect and not just someone who works only with wood. An architect is a planner and builder of houses and temples. The human soul is likened to a house and your body to a temple, so perhaps this is more appropriate than a carpenter but, perhaps that is for you to decide.

18. What was His father’s occupation?

Joseph is not specifically called a carpenter, only Jesus is called the carpenter’s son. It is most likely that both God and Joseph play the same role as chief builder and architect, one on earth and one in heaven.

19. What was the instrument called that Jesus was whipped with?

There is no mention of this device, it only states that he was whipped or flogged. Some call it the “Cat of Nine Tails” but this torture device was not invented then.

20. How many times was he whipped?

There is no mention of any number of lashes. Some speculate it was 40 minus 1 but this too is not factual.

21. What was Jesus crucified on?

Just as Jesus was a carpenter/architect He too was sacrificed on a tree/cross. Ironically the root meaning of the word Cross means to “Make a stand”. So it most likely also represents a choice we must all make between “Freedom” (Jesus) or “Slave” (Barabbas) as the definition of the names dictate.

22. Where were the placements of the nails?

The Bible mentions feet and hands (not wrist). This has symbolic meaning as a completion of actions hence “It is finished”.

23. How many angels are mentioned by name in the Bible?

There are only 2 angels mentioned by name; Gabriel and Michael. However it has been argued by some that Michael is yet another name for Jesus. This however is not fully definitive.

24. Do angels have halos?

Typically a halo is an Egyptian sun disk that represents the enlightenment of the mind but, it is not mentioned anywhere in Scriptures.

25. Do angels have wings?

Yes, Seraphim and Cherubim are mentioned to have wings which are symbolic of spiritual enlightenment.

26. What gender are angels?

The gender of angels are not exactly mentioned. Some attribute angels to be both, or neither male and female but, this is not substantiated. Both Michael and Gabriel are masculine nouns and some cherubim are said to have the head of a man, as well as animals. Angels are also described as “Sons of God” but gender is not specific as there is no description of a need to procreate. In a true Biblical sense we are all “sons” and heirs, male and female alike. All genders are attributed as adam as well, meaning man or mankind. We are being made into the likeness of angels so gender is not specific.

27. Do demons have wings?

There are no descriptions of a demon’s form, or even what a demon really is. Many say they are fallen angels but this is not expressed specifically in the Bible but yet commonly accepted.

28. Does the Devil have horns?

There is no mention of this or even implied.

29. Does the Devil have a pitchfork?

There is no mention of this at all. Only the Lord is attributed with a winnowing fan, not a trident or pitchfork.

30. Does the Devil have goat legs and hooves?

This is not mentioned nor implied. It comes from the opposition of the lamb on the right hand to the goat on the left and the all-consuming nature of a goat verses the selective grazing of a sheep.

31. Did Jesus ever go into Hell?

This is not mentioned in the Bible. However the word Hades is mentioned but, Hades is not Hell, it’s death such as the grave. Hades was the Greek god of the underworld and the gateway to both the Elysian Fields as well as Tartarus.

32. Does Hell exist?

This is widely acceptable as yes but, surprisingly it’s not definitive. Hell is a word added much later to the Bible to describe the accumulation of the punishments of the afterlife of the unrighteous spirits, but yet it is never given a name as a single place. Hell is described as a lake of fire; a place of wailing and gnashing of teeth; an outer darkness; an abyss; but it is not described as a single place that is all those things, so the word Hell is used to help link them together. But if you look to the original text used, you will see that it is either geenna, sheol, grave or hades. The closets version of this word Hell is tartaroō or Tartarus in Greek meaning the place reserved for the most wicked spirits and only used once in the entire Bible.

2 Pe 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, (G5020) and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

33. Where is Hell?

Because Hell is often described as an abyss or pit it is easily accepted as below the earth’s surface but, there is no mention of any such location, only what the characteristics of it embodies.

34. Is Heaven our final destination?

Unknown, there is however mention of a New Jerusalem descending from Heaven as a bride but, it does not mention heaven being our final destination. The word Jerusalem means “Peace” or the “Teachings of Peace” so a New Jerusalem would be as a New Peace that descends upon you.

35. Is there a grim reaper?

The Bible talks about harvesters coming when the wheat is ripe but, it makes no mention to any entity called a grim reaper. Additionally the fields may well represent the fields of the soul that grow understanding and the harvesters are your higher-ideals gathering truth within.

36. What is the soul?

This is a mystery to most because it is not clearly written out but, it is easiest to understand it as a consciousness. The word “Psyche” is relates to the mind and little else. It is the root of the word Psychology.

37. What is mammon?

Mammon is commonly considered money, but it is not. The word mammon means confidence. It is the belief in something absolutely, but there are no absolutes in this life despite the jokes of taxes and death. Remember all things are possible with God and anything you think you know you may quickly find to be wrong. Money is a thing of confidence that people put their faith into, so it is commonly believed to be money but, it is anything you put all your confidence into. The true nature of God is to be open and understanding but, this message is easily lost in judgment. When you work in absolutes judgment is a natural progression and openness is lost. You cannot serve both morality and certainty. True freedom is not found in judgment but in removal from it. It would take some time to explain this fully but it is easiest to see it in saying “I know”. When you utter the words “I know” your journey ends because you are no longer open to change and have no more room for growth. With leaving a little room for healthy skepticism, and on top of conscientious objectivity, you can see things more clearly, as both possible and not possible at the same time. It means you observe and not close your mind to possibilities as a rich man too full of his own knowledge would. Being poor does not mean you do not know, it means you are humble and hungry as being open to all wisdom.

38. What is the “Eye of a needle”?

Many believe this is a sheep gate but, there is historically no evidence of this. The exact meaning is in some debate but what is important is that all things are possible with the Lord. But consider “true riches” are truths. Riches are beliefs; some true and some false; a rich man is full of self. The Hebrew word Gimmel or Camel too means riches. A rich man is too full of self to humble himself to stitch together a thread of truth.

39. Can a rich man get into Heaven?

Of course, so long as he is not mastered by his own riches. Can a proud man full of self…. probably not so much.

40. Does Saint Peter guard the way into Heaven?

I could not tell you where this myth started but, it is in no way substantiated in any scriptures.

So how well did you do?

This exercise was not meant to make you question your faith in a negative way but rather to open up a part of you that perhaps was more closed than you knew. There is a lot to this life that is not understood by most and it is not the fault of the observer who gets it wrong but only to the observer that thinks they know it all and are not open to correction or change. When you reach this dead end the world ceases to flow and a prison of the soul is forged and chains you too your beliefs, and traps you in your own judgments. Remember you cannot serve God and mammon. Not money, but your own beliefs and judgments are the bonds that imprison you into a hell of your own making. Remember, only minutes before you read this you thought you knew the answers but, now you have doubts… so too should the rest of your life be open to possibilities.

The Bible you know is not fully understood and there is much much more than what you think you know going on inside it. God has given us answers, but if you believe you know all the answers then the journey ends and you will miss the voice of God calling out within you. If you want to know more, be open to possibilities and come back and visit often. Seek-knock-and possibilities open!

What is LOVE?

What is LoveAh, this crazy little thing called “LOVE”.

There are so many poems, songs, letters, etc. all directed at this wondrous feeling we call LOVE. But what is Love really?

What if I told you that LOVE is not a feeling at all, but rather that euphoric feeling you get is the reward for finding love? This is a key element in the path to enlightenment called RIGHTEOUSNESS. I know this may sound odd but bear with me here. Righteousness is not about being extra pious or even religious; it has nothing to do with those concepts at all, in fact, piousness is a result of love and not its source. To put piousness first would be like putting the cart before the horse. Love comes first and from the overflow of what is inside it spills out unto what is outside.

Consider the word called LOVE. The mind rewards with joyful chemicals such as serotonin or dopamine whenever you do something considered correct. The word CORRECT is the basis of the word RIGHT that we use in RIGHTEOUSNESS. So CORRECTNESS is the foundation of LOVE. This may sound odd but I learned an interesting fact from being married to a Japanese lady for over 20 years and that was the word BEAUITUL means ORDERLY. The mind is a calculating machine and it constantly seeks order out of chaos, and this process of finding beauty in order to the Chinese may be known as Fung Shui or even Kung Fu. In India it may be Dharma or Yoga. There are many modalities all based in the sense of order as beauty. In part this comes from the fact we are all made of atoms and thus there is a fractal structure built into everything, most easy to see in snowflakes, metals and trees. A fractal is an object that reproduces itself in a repetitive manner, generally shrinking as it repeats, but always with a form of symmetry. This is the same method in which the Bible is written as a macrocosm and microcosm where many greater things reflect in smaller things and vice versa.

Consider: Macro Micro
(Trilogy-Family-Self)

  • God as FATHER as Mind
  • Holy Spirit as MOTHER as Spirit
  • Son as CHILD as Body

These same echoes go through Sky/Superego, Waters/Ego and EARTH/Id and so forth.

But again let’s consider LOVE. What is love then if not a feeling?

To the ancient Greeks LOVE was separated into 4 aspects of correctness:

  • Body: Éros (ἔρως érōs)
  • Spirit: Agápe (ἀγάπη agápē)
  • Mind: Philia (φιλία philía)
  • Soul or Being: Storge (στοργή storgē)

The Body/Id: Éros (ἔρως érōs)
Eros is the love of the body that desires perfection to reproduce with. It seeks healthy genetic material to unite to and thus it appreciates order, as life is made of fractals and symmetry. The people we consider most beautiful are exceptionally symmetrical. In fact as an artist I was taught that all facial relations are based on the measurement of the eye (Try and measure your facial features based on the width of your eye and see). Beauty means Harmonious, or Orderly, thus it gives ease to the primitive self and seeks to join to it, thus we have our animal drive of a sexual nature. The love drive from the primitive-self to find order is also the driving force that leads to higher-understanding.

The Heart/Spirit/Ego: Agápe (ἀγάπη agápē)
Agápe is the love of heart in relationships. It desires perfect relational bonding so it most often relates to family as an intimate love that is not physical. It relates to what is most perfectly and closely connected to you and it associates all things to itself as a relational wisdom. In other words it’s a selfish love that seeks to make everything good about the self. If something seems correct it then selfishly wants it to belong to you. This is why it plays mother/spirit as it brings forth a connection like an umbilicus to God and creates balance between father/superego and child/Id, but unfortunately it too is fickle and is easily swayed as it wants all things to be about the self.

The Mind/Superego: Philia (φιλία philía)
Philia is a love of the mind without feeling that demands correctness of ideals, aspirations, goals, etc. and links to other similar concepts. It is often referred to as “Brotherly love” as it sees certain people as correct and honorable and closely associates itself to likeminded individuals. This love is that of the superego that feels nothing but only desires order. It is easily seen in music, books, sports, religion and all forms of entertainment, thus you LOVE or HATE a song, show, etc. because of how it resonates with your higher sensibilities. Consider music like Bach and Mozart, this music is math and the harmonious mind revels in the perfection. Consider a joke and the release of joy in solving a mystery/riddle. The mind is what often tries to play God as it is in opposition to the body/Id because the body seeks comfort but the mind seeks goals and ideals. So to the mind’s love is that which is most correct to its own objectives and ideals thus it pits the father’s order against the unruly chaos of the child.

The Soul/Being/Psyche: Storge (στοργή storgē)
Storge is the love of the full soul that is without any other explanation other than it is the sense of being. The entire psyche/soul seeks sustainability through understanding and balance and thus accepts things as they are, as all things are peaceful when all things are in order, even if not perfect, it will accept that which the other loves cannot. Order in balance is the sense of being.

Again LOVE is not a feeling; it is the correctness in everything. This is why our ideal mate is loved in mind, body, spirit and soul. When all are connected as being true it is a bond not easy to separate without utterly destroying the foundations of self. The goal of LOVE is to create a harmonious sense of being and thus it seeks the higher understandings of GOD which is correctness in universal Truth. This is why Christ is known as “Truth” as He is the embodiment of God’s Love for humanity and the spiritual guide we all follow as a process of enlightenment.

The Bible tells us Only God is GOOD, as only GOD IS LOVE… as GOD IS the source of CORRECTNESS/RIGHTEOUSNESS in everything. God is also the great I AM. We see this also in the name of His Son called Emmanuelle, translated “God with (IN) us” …TRUTH is LOVE.

Matthew 19

16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

 

1 John 4

7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

THE TREE OF LIFE: The paragraph that will forever change your life

THE TREE OF LIFE: The paragraph that will forever change your life.

Mark4:11 And He said to them,
“To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables,

Hidden in the stories is a greater truth written by God.

tree of life

Like a family tree of progenitive truths grows the process of ultimate understanding.

THE TREE OF LIFE:

The Tree of Life is, in fact, the understanding that you grow in life. It grows beside another tree called Judgment. The knowledge of constructing the ideals of right and wrong creates the judgment that kills the soul. The garden paradise is really your innocence. It is the ignorance in which we live, naked and unaware of the shameful things we do (Gen 2:25). We recognize the nature of the animal-self and name them in others (Gen 2:20), but we fail to accept our own blame for the things we do in our ignorance. The name Adam means “man” and he represents the construction of ideas and beliefs called “Truth” and like fruit are consumed (Rev 3:16) and like mortal men then laid to rest when understood. Yet truths are not refined unless they are tested in the fires of enlightenment (IE: Burning Bush, Flaming Sword, Sun of the field, etc.) to find out if they were judged false or true (Psa 96:13). So our ideals thrive in a blissful innocence called ignorance (Paradise). We gather the fruits of our understanding each day and tend to growing more trees of our own understanding (Gen 2:16). Yet knowledge is not enough alone. So from the masculine knowledge comes forth the feminine wisdom . Wisdom is beautiful and desirable and it is our ability to gather truth to the self relationally (Wisdom is self-relational IE: Woman, Self/Ego). So Adam the “extant of thought” joins to Eve the “truth of self” and they become one flesh (Gen 2:24). Flesh in the ancient Hebrew means teachings or good news. So therefore “knowledge” joins to the “wisdom” of the self and brings forth “understanding” like children (Gen 4:1). And the wisdom of the self sees that the knowledge of “good and evil” is desirable to grow beyond ignorance (Gen 3:6). So we partake of the fruit of understanding of what we believe is right and what is wrong only to discover that our blissfulness has ended and the “world” of the soul is a hard place to grow, for we are then aware of our nakedness and shame (Gen 3:7). Because now everything you do is tested by the light of the Sun called “Enlightenment”. (Gen 3:17-19) Therefore, we labor in the Sun with difficulty to bring forth more understanding like a farmer and harvester of truth. In this bringing forth more truth is now more painful than ever before (Gen 3:16). In ignorance, pain is easily forgotten, but to the wise it never is. But pain is our driving force that leads us on to discover a NEW PEACE (Rev 21:2), better than the old paradise to a NEW called JERUSALEM (Which means PEACE: Wholeness of self). In the fullness of your understanding the Tree of Life will blossom and you will eat the fruits of the laborers you have gained in your quest to truly understand and to eschew the judgment you created by constructing the “Knowledge of Good and Evil“.

In the end, the Bible is really the story of you. Amen.

What is everywhere and nowhere and has no center? The Answer…

I asked my readers the question “What is everywhere and nowhere and has no center?” and these are the answers I got:

  • Now that the whirlwind has settled and I’ve had time to think. . . God is the only answer that fits the question. ~
  • The CREATOR ~
  • Infinity ~
  • Void ~
  • Just being… ~

There was a time
when the answers people would have given would have been, God, or heaven or something similar to the ones I got to my question. But times have changed, as they often do, and an entity has grown out of technology into something both real and not real at the same time. The answer is to the riddle was:

Our huffing and puffing to impress God, our scrambling for brownie points, our thrashing about trying to fix ourselves while hiding our pettiness and wallowing in guilt are nauseating to God and are a flat out denial of the gospel of grace.

Brennan Manning

The idea that we win brownie points with God by being more pious is a slap in the face of the Creator that made us flawed as we are. It is not our image of perfection that He loves but our ability to truly connect with others to build a temple in which His love can live.

Matthew 6:1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

The “Alms” mentioned here are not mercies of money only, but the RICHNESS of BELIEFS being shared. In our own eyes we are wise giving freely the gift of our beliefs of how we think life should be lived.

The master of rules finds he is only a slave to them.

I think that in the future, clocks won’t say three o’clock anymore. They’ll just get right to the point and rename three o’clock ‘Pepsi.’

~Douglas Coupland

Though this isn’t a clock we can imagine for a moment that it is. In the Bible we don’t often think about time though it marches, like an army, relentlessly against us. From the cradle to the grave we are pursued by a clock like Captain Hook & his crocodile called time.  The point to this post is more than time itself, it’s about a concept older than most may think, it’s called an ATOM. This concept is over 500 years old and it is in fact in the Bible. We know it best as  1Co 15:52.

1Co 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

The word in question here is translated into “MOMENT” but it comes from the definition of being too small to be cut. It came from a scientist that decided that no matter how hard he tried he could not cut a cone so that the circles at the slice point could be equal. Thus something there must be too small to be cut.

Atoms are the building blocks of all things. Our universe is primarily comprised of them (Minus whatever dark matter may be). They have been with us from the beginning and will be with us till the end. They are energy and do not die and they make up you and me. This is God in timelessness & and also in finiteness. And by this verse we see that we are only a VERY VERY small part in the cosmic scheme of things… yet we are loved for all eternity.

#BiblicalConversations Texting with Teresa on The WOMAN at the WELL

 

Sometimes the best way to understand a thing is to talk it out with another person. Teresa and I do a lot of Bible studies using the “Book of Secrets” method and it sharpens our understanding of God’s Word with such clarity. This process of discovery is one of our greatest joys we share together and so we thought it might be nice to share our musings together to help you understand the same. Again you need to look at the Bible as if the world is really you and the stories are all about ideas that are in you and not as people. The whole Bible is written in living allegories and knowing the way to see it and read it changes everything. The real secret is in hidden in the names.

 

Teresa and I are very advanced in our studies and so some of this may be a little hard to grasp at first but the video series on this site should really help clear things up.

 

BIBLE “Book of Secrets” KEYS

  • Woman represents Self-relational wisdom
  • Jesus represents the TRUTH that frees.

 

Text Conversation:
Woman at the Well

 

John 4:4-24

4    And he must needs go through Samaria.

5    Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

6    Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.

7    There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.

8    (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)

9    Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

10    Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

11    The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

12    Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

13    Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

14    But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

15    The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

16    Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

17    The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:

18    For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.

19    The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.

20    Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

21    Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.

22    Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

23    But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

24    God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

#BiblicalConversations Texting with Teresa on MAN vs BEAST

 

Sometimes the best way to understand a thing is to talk it out with another person. Teresa and I do a lot of Bible studies using the “Book of Secrets” method and it sharpens our understanding of God’s Word with such clarity. This process of discovery is one of our greatest joys we share together and so we thought it might be nice to share our musings together to help you understand the same. Again you need to look at the Bible as if the world is really you and the stories are all about ideas that are in you and not as people. The whole Bible is written in living allegories and knowing the way to see it and read it changes everything. The real secret is in hidden in the names.

 

Teresa and I are very advanced in our studies and so some of this may be a little hard to grasp at first but the video series on this site should really help clear things up.

 

BIBLE “Book of Secrets” KEYS

  • HEAVEN=SKY=FATHER=SUPEREGO

It’s all about you! The WORLD/HOUSE is the SOUL/MIND inside you.
