UnSeenWORD Basics: 3

Clarity and Balance:

What have you learned so far from the last two lessons?

In the last two lessons you learned that a location, at the level of the soul, is not actually a physical place but a state of being, and that a person and their lineage is a type of metaphor for a developing thought process. We quickly see that not everything in the Bible is always as it seems and that the Holy Scriptures are multilayered truths that play out simultaneously. There are the surface layer stories, and then there are the spiritual truths written out in a type of sign language for the soul. You see small hints to this everywhere in the Bible when it mentions Heaven and Earth. In the mirrored truth these are no longer places but attributes of the human consciousness that teach us how to become a reflection of God and learn to rule our inner-world.

2 Corinthians 3:18
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

We also learned that to become more like God we must follow the establishing process and become a “son” of God and thus embody His Truth like Jesus.

Galatians 4:7
Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

Clearing the Slate:

Now in the process of becoming an established embodiment of truth we need to start from the beginning point of knowing nothing and growing from there. This is why your life is compared to a wineskin. You do not put new truths in with the old or it will spoil the temple you are trying to assemble within. But set aside the old things you know and you will have two sets of truths to call upon when needed.

Matthew 9:17
Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”

In the new order of understanding you must set aside all old knowledge and start anew, but keep in reserves the information you have gained from your past life before you became aware of higher truths so that you may call upon it later. These are a type of duality of the spirit that we will look more into later on as the two ruling wisdoms that govern your greater truth. These same attributes are also mirrored in how you are learning to read the Bible right now. Set aside what you think you know about God and the Scriptures and fill your vessel with His higher truths, but also keep the information you have learned in church. In time the two facets will begin to merge and forge a new understanding in your life.

Matthew 13:52
Then He said to them, “Therefore every scribe instructed concerning the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure things new and old.”

Now before we can go forward remember it is always important to pray and clear your mind. So take a moment to calm and clear yourself of all you think you know. When you are ready, let’s move forward onto the next part in our search into discovery of higher understandings.

Forward:

In the book of John just before he begins to talk about the world, or as we learned in the last lesson that is actually the “world order” or rather “universal harmony” called the Kosmos; he begins to introduce the “Word” of God. Now we also learned that the “Word” means “Truth” and the “Truth” is “Jesus”. But at this level Jesus is not the man but rather the divine truth God has sent to us to help us establish our greater understanding and unlock the keys to the kingdom by establishing a “house” or “temple” we know as our “soul” which in fact is your “collective consciousness”. Also at this level we need to remember that “God” is no longer the ruler of the outside world but a “Divine enlightenment” or “Ruling Higher Consciousness” that rules your inner-world.

John 1:1-5
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

So the passage you just read at this level is not about the Bible or Jesus per say, but the Truth of God we now know as the “Divine Enlightenment“, or if it makes it easier to understand, it simply means “correctness” which you know as “righteousness“. I think one of the hardest parts for most people that are highly indoctrinated by their religion is that it’s hard to let go of what they were taught and they even fear a little words like “Higher consciousness” or “Universal Harmony” as they feel a too “New Age”. In a way you would be very correct in that assumption, but these are universal truths that are shared amongst almost all major religions of the world that focus on your soul as a higher essence of consciousness. The simple fact is truth is truth no matter where it comes from. But it is what we do with the truths we learn that makes all the difference in life. So if it helps, break down these insights into their simplest terms so it removes the more sacred sounding terms and just gives you a clearer understanding. Please feel free to do what feels most comfortable in your learning process. After all God has placed these truths in your heart already as we learned as we read at the end of lesson 2 in John 1:9-10.

Now the point I was trying to make in John 1:1-5 was that we need to have a new beginning and a way to start over so that we can establish the Truth of God by building up our understanding on the symbolic “Rock” we know as Jesus, or as you better know Him now as the “Truth” of God (IE: Correctness of understanding). So as “Sons” and “Heirs” of His Truth (taken from the last lesson) we are “Establishing” and “Building-up” our Holy “House” or “Temple” known as our “Consciousness” so that God’s truth may reside inside of us (Are you with me so far? If not, feel free to review the earlier lessons for better insight). Now to establish a foundation of new truths you need to clear away your old beliefs you once had, and so you need a starting point to reference from and the end passage of John 1:5 will help clarify this by pointing out that the truth is already within you, but you simply do not fully understand it clearly.

John 1:5
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

This is the exact same sentiment we studied in the last lesson in John 1:9-10 that the truth is already with you. But we were full of darkness and could not understand what it is we already know to be true and correct. You will see this also echoed in the Gospel of Luke.

Luke 11:34
The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness.

The eye is your perception of spiritual truths. The Hindu religion calls it your third eye, but in Christianity it is simply a reference to your actual eyes but perceived at a spiritual level. Basically it is in what you perceive as good that gives your life meaning by enlightening your consciousness. But what you perceive as wrong will cloud and darken your perceptions of life and thus your soul or house becomes dark and lonely. We often call this darkness ignorance, but it is the essence of fear and depression which is your greatest enemy. By removing the darkness in our perceptions we accept what we believe to be correct and this lifts our spirits. The things the Catholic Church quantified as the Seven Deadly Sins are all attributes that weight down your soul and make your house of lies heavy and hard to hold together. But the greater virtues of righteousness are freeing and a house built of solid truths is strong and upright and full of light, thus it is uplifting as it is made of things that give your soul elevation rather than depression. This is the essence of the tribe and name of Judah.

The Founding Tribe of Judah:

Let’s look again at Zephaniah 1:1 and see the names in the lineage that led to establishing the prophet Zephaniah.

Zep 1:1 The word 1697 of the LORD 3068 which came unto Zephaniah 6846 the son 1121 of Cushi 3570, the son 1121 of Gedaliah 1436, the son 1121 of Amariah 568, the son 1121 of Hizkiah 2396, in the days 3117 of Josiah 2977 the son 1121 of Amon 526, king 4428 of Judah 3063.

Balancing the Soul:

Notice that the first name listed in the order of succession is Judah. Now this is not Judah the person but the kingdom of Judah. Now on the level of higher understanding this will be our starting point, or the founding stone of this section of the house, or the soul’s consciousness. And as this is a kingdom and not a person this is a mental or emotional state of being that we are building up from. Basically it is an order of understanding based in Judah. But to understand this state of consciousness we need to know what Judah means and this is one of the more complicated names to decipher if you do not understand the balancing weight of sin and the freeing lightness of righteousness. In many ways enlightenment is weightless, thus light = light and darkness = heavy. You have heard it called “The weight of sin”. This is very similar to what the ancient Egyptians believed where the human soul was weighed against that of a feather of Maat the goddess of the order of the universe.

Hebrews 12:1
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us

This act of balancing the spirit is also seen in Revelations as a scale in the hand of the dark rider.

Revelation 6:5
When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.

So as the err of sin is heavy, then correctness is in opposition to it on the scales of justice and it gives ease and lightness of the spirit, and this is where the name of Judah becomes important.

The Elevated State of Judah:

Judah.

h3063

יהודה Yĕhuwdah

The name of Judah is not another composite name like Zephaniah, but it helps to look at the root of the name to get a better picture of its meaning.

Strong’s H3063 – Yĕhuwdah

יְהוּדָה

Transliteration

Yĕhuwdah

Pronunciation

yeh·hü·dä’ (Key)

Part of Speech

proper masculine noun

Root Word (Etymology)

From יָדָה (H3034)

TWOT Reference

850c

Outline of Biblical Usage

Judah = “praised”
1) the son of Jacob by Leah
2) the tribe descended from Judah the son of Jacob
3) the territory occupied by the tribe of Judah
4) the kingdom comprised of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin which occupied the southern part of Canaan after the nation split upon the death of Solomon
5) a Levite in Ezra’s time
6) an overseer of Jerusalem in the time of Nehemiah
7) a Levite musician in the time of Nehemiah
8) a priest in the time of Nehemiah

The translation chosen by scholars in this case is “Praised” because it comes from the root word yadah

Strong’s H3034 – yadah

יָדָה

Transliteration

yadah

Pronunciation

yä·dä’ (Key)

Part of Speech

verb

Root Word (Etymology)

A primitive root; used only as denominative from יָד (H3027)

TWOT Reference

847

Outline of Biblical Usage

1)
to throw, shoot, cast
a) (Qal) to shoot
(arrows)
b) (Piel) to cast, cast down, throw down
c) (Hiphil)
1)
to give thanks,, laud, praise
2)
to confess, confess (the name of God)
d) (Hithpael)
1) to confess (sin)
2)
to give thanks

Yadah means to cast or shoot out as in an arrow or to throw out, but it also means to confess or give thanks, all of which give ballast to the side of correctness on the scales of justice because it is casting off the burdens that weigh us down. The root word that yadah is made from is yad.

Strong’s H3027 – yad

יָד

Transliteration

yad

Pronunciation

yäd (Key)

Part of Speech

feminine noun

Root Word (Etymology)

A primitive word

TWOT Reference

844

Outline of Biblical Usage

1) hand
a) hand (of man)
b) strength, power (fig.)
c) side (of land), part, portion (metaph.) (fig.)
d) (various special, technical senses)
1) sign, monument
2) part, fractional part, share
3) time, repetition
4) axle-trees, axle
5) stays, support (for laver)
6) tenons (in tabernacle)
7) a phallus, a hand (meaning unsure)
8) wrists

Yad is an attribute of strength that can be used in many ways but mostly as a means of support.

So when we take all the attributes of Judah we do get a type of “praise” as the simple definition gives but yet there is something more. We get a real sense of Divine Exaltation.

What is Exaltation?

Definition of EXALTATION

1: an act of exalting
: the state of being
exalted

2: an excessively intensified sense of well-being, power, or importance

3: an increase in degree or intensity <exaltation of virulence of a virus>

Exaltation is a state of being that is something akin to both “Joy” and “Praise” and just like a city is represented in the Bible as a state of being, then perhaps, so too is exaltation a state of being of praise that could easily be called “Judah“. So my guess is that the Kingdom of Judah is actually a state of “Divine Exaltation” which is in an essence, a magnified sense of “praise” which gives us a solid ground in which to build upon.

This is the end of Part C.

In the next lesson we will learn how to understand fidelity and unification to the higher truths of God.
