God is a “jealous” God (part 1)

February 28, 2015

There is no Apostolic Succession.

Why?

Matthew 16. 12

12 Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

Let’s understand for a moment that everything written in the Old Testament is SYMBOLIC. Let’s understand that the characters never existed in the flesh as man understands flesh—the stories never actually happened—except through Prophesy. Let’s look at the Old Testament as Prophesy, for the most part, and try to understand its Spiritual Symbolism, which would require that Mankind/Humankind be willing to enter “a place” where he might allow for a type of unique interpretation—one that is of a Language not known.

 

I did battle recently with a couple of Catholic priests. This seemed to go on forever. I was like, “Good grief! When are these two going to get it? When are they going to see this?” Both made comments that showed their skepticism of the Old and New Testaments. They seemed to want to deny these were written for a special purpose, claiming flawed men wrote these (the doubting Thomas 🙂 you know the story … but a great excuse for not listening to what others have to say–esp a female–and a great excuse for denying their own partiality and ignorance), and they seemed to want to deny there existed powerful Symbolism within these—Symbolism showing Prophesy: the Evolution of God and Man, because they have an ingrained dislike of anything prophetic … however … that peculiar Lady of Fatima and all those Virgin Mary sightings are okey-dokie … IF these do not contradict the Doctrine of their Faith. To one like me, this is like trying to put two feet into one shoe, but it won’t work because I have a left foot and a right right foot. What we mean to say here—symbolically—is that you cannot have so many darn Mystics in your house and be without the Prophet, because the Doctrine ends up looking like a Ferris Wheel instead of a cataclysmic release for the continuation of man in his understanding on God.

Allow us to continue … RE: the priests…

My question was, “Okay, if you get rid of both the Old and the New, what do you use as priests having sworn oaths to Roman Catholicism? Roman Catholic Doctrine?” (Gee, not a hard thing to see—right?) Now, neither priest is seriously stuck on Roman Catholic Doctrine, and both have broken most of its tenets, which causes one to ask, where then are they getting the input for what they teach/preach? How do ‘they’ know that they are “of the Spirit” they say they believe in? Anyone can take something, fashion into something else—making it look rich, appetizing, even teaching that it will be the direct line to God—Heaven—Saint—Martyr—Holiness. WE ask: do you think YOU are that “chosen” way that others might find Spiritual Wellness? Do you think your hierarchy (popes, bishops, cardinals, pastoral advisors) are “it” … and because you obey these (or pretend to 🙂 … all those millions of Catholics are heading straight to Heaven? because they listen to you and do as you say through Roman Catholic Doctrine—which you don’t really agree with and do not fully obey?

Flawed men? Flawed according to RC Doctrine? Or just dishonest in their vocations—those “wives” they took for themselves? I am smiling as I write this because those confessing to the priests have not confessed all … as they probably don’t see all that needs confessing … and surely they withhold much that they might continue in “acceptance” in the RCC—the parish—the organizations—remain in good standing, etc … Again, flawed men? Flawed according to RC Doctrine? Seems a bit like playacting—wouldn’t you say? James says let your yes be yes and your no be no. Gnostic Literature states (in brief) through Savior: why do what you hate? (*remind me to share on fasting in essay, part 2).

And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does that have to do with us? My hour has not yet come.”

It is easy to see the hypocrisy in the Religious Systems, and it is clear what are the stumbling blocks. Religion is a whore or it would not be Religion. If you can understand this without puffing up your chest and shouting, “How dare you—you are doing Satan’s work!” If you “understand” the whore then you begin to realize the Symbology of Holy Scripture. Take Hosea—And the LORD said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the LORD. Babylon is false doctrine, and this has a wide range, but we cannot ignore the Roman Catholic venue in this. We can’t ignore that it put its stamp in Christianity and we cannot ignore that it developed the mindset of catholic man through its advertising methods, and these are vast. Understand this and God’s Word begins to have a different connotation.

Allow us a brief foray …

17 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.

6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Here is a sampling of that unique understanding—one differing from Roman Catholic Doctrine and other Religious venue. The above from the Book of Revelation is a DREAM. John, our Beloved, the one that Jesus told Peter: 21So Peter seeing him said to Jesus, “Lord, and what about this man?” 22Jesus said to him, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!” … wrote from a Dream given to him through What is of the Spirit. Dreams are a manifestation of Spiritual Livelihood, and a way for God to reach the mind of man>human … to bring him into AWARENESS within the Spirit Senses. No man can control dreams and visions except through what? Dogma. Because … man will “interpret” these through what he feeds on. What is in his mind will determine what dreams and visions are trying to tell him. If he is limited in this Language because of his Religion (stumbling blocks?) then he cannot HEAR what is written by/through God’s chosen (Spirit filtered through human hands) for His Work and Worth. Dreams and visions and what is born from these are the Arts of the Spirit/spirit. Anyone who is of the understanding that one can commune fluently in the Realm of the Spirit/spirit also using dreams and visions is of like-mindedness within What is God, or … what is Evil. But remember, this is of the mind and can be distorted, misunderstood and misused for selfish agenda. It requires the HEART to determine Truth in what God procures for LOVE, and this cannot be if of a partial venue.

Man hears only in part if he hears at all … due to Babylon, and what we shared in a previous essay from Chapter 7 of Enoch: and all of them together went and took wives for themselves, each choosing one for himself, and they began to go in to them and to defile themselves with sex with them. The understanding here is that “wives” represent life choices. These are the marriage beds of man where he is without the safety net on Truth … and without the nexus necessary for Spiritual Growth—the moving into wellness. He thinks himself a mere step from God when he is Light years (in the Spiritual) away from his coming. If you understand this then the canonizing of Religionists is found deceptive, or merely of ignorance. Man cannot commune within the Holy Spirit while embedded in Religious sequestering. There is no chatting with his saints in the Holy Spirit,  and the visions he sees are symbolically calling attention to something valiant, and not something for dim-witted obedience.

Light-ening strikes where the kindness is problematic as man struggles with his IDENTITY. God shows his sensitivity in congruence with Light (Spiritual Awareness) through fighting the war on criminal partnering. Francis (@ Assisi), our dear fawn, was of a generous output—fierce, but noble in Spirit—and heard his calling to NOT partner in the vocation of the Roman Catholic priesthood, but to move out of set dominion and begin a “foundation” for those suffering under stringent rules and selfish ordination. He was isolated, as most were (Teresa @ Avila and Ignatius @ Layola) and subjected to the law of the land, which, for him, and others called to something of the evolving … was/is a moving out of the stagnancy and remedial tendencies of Religious venue. And please be aware that not all written on these are of true information. For instance, “complete obedience to the pope” written by Ignatius runs contrary to his calling. We do not believe he wrote this. Remember that the writings up to a certain time were often edited by superiors in the Roman provision. The Institution believed and likely still believe it owns its members (once a Catholic always a Catholic according to RC records?). The members, especially those in orders, are the property of the Institution, and may be why the current Roman Pontiff stated that the pope is an institution. These were required to stay within these mandates, even when the writings did not—having sought, even fought, to move away from what was meant for other partnering, which is a striving for UNITY (we have shared on this throughout SPIR).

Only those of dogmatic stations fear the freeborn of Truth. Only those sitting on high chairs orchestrating within confines of manmade agenda through censorship, and callous, arid ritual, and ridicule … fear … gnosis born from asking, seeking, impartial alliance with the court of apostolic purveying. They fear they will loose their seats. What works in them, feeding their desires, emotions … carriages … fears losing ground (land: symbolic for man—what is often his Vanity. *Note: And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? This is where Spirit unites with man to become one in God-likeness, and please note that the pairing is a She for man, which is instrumental for his ID—Name——do not forget Saul-Paul, Levi-Matthew and what these were brought into for the Work).

 

The story of Peter walking with Christ on the water is, of course, Spirit Symbolism, but what was demonstrated through this exercise? Peter feared losing “ground” and he began to sink. Savior responded with:

Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”

Doubt is the enemy of the Prophet. The wind represents the Spirit and when Peter saw this, he became afraid, but what exactly was it about this experience that caused him to be afraid? The obvious in the story is to find self (see self) without land: his vain image with all its accolades, good looks, titles … (made from dust- return to dust).

Man believed he understood the dirt beneath his feet, that same earth which is now beginning to crumble under him—(big sink holes consuming cars, houses, large sections of roads and sidewalks … Signs?). He thought with these he would be safe, especially in owning it—HIS property—but what has it wrought him? Where is he? Sinking? The way of a pilgrim is … For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. See also: Wisdom of Sirach, Chapter 51.

Peter realized something about himself, his lifestyle, perhaps his life choice of the old way that was telling, and, showed him his fear(s), and this while in his walk with Jesus as Prophet. Forget for a moment about what you have been taught about Jesus, and allow yourself to view him as a Prophet on Truth (on Truth is to be on something solid like rock which represents honesty and not dishonesty). Peter saw his own dishonesty, and his little faith through a type of Spiritual Exegesis—a walking on something of memory (reflection), seeing sins, missteps, injustice and bigotry through his former place of living, and having this excised through this experience. This experience allowed him a glimpse of Truth. The Word of God (Wisdom) next to him (going out in twos) allowed him to see himself as flawed and weak—nothing yet solid as his doubt was revealed to him. Peter was being instructed by God (through SPIRITUAL venue), and this is unlike the words of man which hath not the power of the Holy (recall what Paul says: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

The story of Elijah shows something similar, except, Elijah was not yet where Peter was in the walk. And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria: This is immensely prophetic. If Elijah represents a Prophet of God (remember, we are looking at the Old as Symbolic) … what is this telling the people? {GOD} as Prophet, tells the people to enter into this pilgrimage on Truth.

The Prophet calls the Assembly of the Living. Peter was being instructed in the way unto Truth. Every Prophet  must remain in this, as we said … “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!”

 

 

But look at this:

Anoint Hazael to be king over Syria. Was Hazael real? Let’s continue in the vein of the Symbolic. What of the artifact we read from Wikipedia that has the inscription … “to our lord Hazael”?

[Decorated bronze plaques from chariot horse-harness taken from Hazael, identified by their inscriptions, have been found as re-gifted votive objects at two Greek sites, the Heraion of Samos and in the temple of Apollo at Eretria on Euboea. The inscriptions read “that which Hadad gave to our lord Hazael from ‘Umq in the year that our lord crossed the River”.[6] The river must be the Orontes. The triangular front pieces show a “Master of the animals”[7] gripping inverted sphinxes or lions in either hand, and with deep-bosomed goddesses who cup their breasts and stand on the heads of lions. When Tiglath-Pileser III took Damascus in 733/2, these heirlooms were part of the loot that fell eventually into Greek, probably Euboean hands.[8]

Who is Hazael? IN keeping with the “language” of the day … Hazael means “God sees”. Hazael is a Mystic-Seer put in charge of the people for the purpose of what? Movement. Crossing the body of water? It’s all in there—Symbolically … with some misinterpretations, and departure from the origins … (*Orthodox Ikons are written, too. These are understood as teachings).

The Prophet calls the Assembly for the Spiritual journey of crossing that great divide. We are of this today—now …

What we share here is just a glimpse because it would be too much, but we will get into Book of REvelation, and the dreams and visions … and “the whore” in part two of God is a “jealous” God.

    this is unfathomable
    where is there a means of community worthy of LIFE in a place like this?
    will the RELIGIONISTS solve this problem?

    • opheliart permalink

      from Wikipedia:

      Nigeria is religiously diverse society with Islam and Christianity being the most widely professed religions. According to recent estimates, 50% of Nigeria’s population adheres to Islam (mainly Sunni). Christianity is practiced by 48% of the population (74% Protestant, 25% Catholic, 1% other Christian[135]). Adherents of Animism and other religions collectively represent 1.4% of the population.[134]

      All religions represented in Nigeria were practiced in every major city in 1990. Islam dominated the north and had a number of supporters in the South Western, Yoruba part of the country. Nigeria has the largest Muslim population in sub-Saharan Africa. Protestantism and local syncretic Christianity are also in evidence in Yoruba areas, while Catholicism dominates the Igbo and closely related areas. Both Protestantism and Catholicism dominated in the Ibibio, Annang, and the Efik kiosa lands.

      The 1963 census indicated that 47% of Nigerians were Muslim, 35% Christian, and 18% members of local indigenous congregations; the results of this census were disputed however. If accurate, this indicated a sharp increase since 1953 in the number of Christians (up 13%); a slight decline among those professing indigenous beliefs, compared with 20%; and only a modest (4%) increase of Muslims.

      The vast majority of Muslims in Nigeria are Sunni belonging to Maliki school of jurisprudence; however, a sizeable minority also belongs to Shafi madhhab. A large number of Sunni Muslims are members of Sufi brotherhoods. Most Sufis follow the Qadiriyya, Tijaniyyah and/or the Mouride movements. A significant Shia minority exists (see Shia in Nigeria). Some northern states have incorporated Sharia law into their previously secular legal systems, which has brought about some controversy.[136] Kano State has sought to incorporate Sharia law into its constitution.[137] The majority of Quranists follow the Kalo Kato or Quraniyyun movement. There are also Ahmadiyya and Mahdiyya minorities.[138]

      According to a 2001 report[139] of The World Factbook by CIA, about 50% of Nigeria’s population was Muslim, 40% were Christians and 10% adhered to local religions.[140] Other sources give higher estimates for the country’s Christian population. A 2012 report on religion and public life by the Pew Research Center stated that in 2010, 49.3 percent of Nigeria’s population was Christian, 48.8 percent was Muslim, and 1.9 percent were followers of indigenous and other religions, or unaffiliated.[141]

      The 2010 census of Association of Religion Data Archives has also reported that 46.5 percent of the total population was Christian, slightly larger than the Muslim population (45.5 percent), while 7.7 percent were members of other religious groups.[142] However, these estimates should be taken with caution because sample data is mostly collected from major urban areas in the south, which are predominantly Christian.[143][144][145]

      Among Christians, the Pew Research survey found that 74% were Protestant, 25% were Catholic, and 1% belonged to other Christian denominations, including a small Orthodox Christian community.[135] In terms of Nigeria’s major ethnic groups, the Hausa ethnic group (predominant in the north) was found to be 95% Muslim and 5% Christian, the Yoruba tribe (predominant in the west) was 55% Muslim, 35% Christian and 10% adherents of other religions, while the Igbos (predominant in the east) and the Ijaw (south) were 98% Christian, with 2% practicing traditional religions.[146] The middle belt of Nigeria contains the largest number of minority ethnic groups in Nigeria, who were found to be mostly Christians and members of traditional religions, with a small proportion of Muslims.[147][148]

      Leading Protestant churches in the country include the Church of Nigeria of the Anglican Communion, the Assemblies of God Church, the Nigerian Baptist Convention and The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations Since the 1990s, there has been significant growth in many other churches, particularly those of Evangelical theology. These include the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Winners’ Chapel, Christ Apostolic Church (the first Aladura Movement in Nigeria), Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Evangelical Church of West Africa, Mountain of Fire and Miracles, Christ Embassy, The Synagogue Church Of All Nations. In addition, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Aladura Church, the Seventh-day Adventist and various indigenous churches have also experienced growth.[149][150] Other leading Protestant churches in the country are the Church of Nigeria of the Anglican Communion, the Assemblies of God Church, the Nigerian Baptist Convention and The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations.

        we shall see what comes of this

        *here is one article that tells a different story
        http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2009/01/07/the-truth-about-rick-warren-in-africa.html

        and the JEWISH organization is saying what exactly?

        comment from the article:
        Eric March 7, 2015 at 10:21 am
        Compassion is a comprehensive term, when a Christian shows compassion it not only covers addressing the physical needs of the soul but a Christian must be also be aware of the spiritual needs to whom they are rendering aid.

        A Christian therefore cannot divorce between taking care of physical and spiritual needs. What good is it if a person addresses only the temporary physical needs of another and fails to see the larger picture of the suffering soul and address the long term spiritual need?

        Christians are called to evangelize(share the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ) to all mankind, it is part of the Christian walk of faith. This is commanded by Jesus.

        *************
        It is not for man to judge or be judged in what must be “the suffering soul” … ONLY GOD KNOWS THE SOUL … where this is. Man too often has summed up what God wants, and this according to his Religious tastes. He feeds indiscriminately within and from this comes “something” … IT IS NOW TIME FOR HUMANITY TO BE REALIZED WITHIN THE VANITY OF HIS RELIGIOUS SEQUESTERING. How does it survive—is it a place of growth, or a place of indecency?

        We are appalled at what some Christians claim as WHAT Jesus commands … as we see much immaturity in their walk. WE agree Spiritual needs are important, but not in man’s miniscule elect will you find the necessary ‘finance’ where one needs to be in the Spirit Gifts. Where is his Advocate? The one challenging him to become AWARE? He claims Lord is his Advocate … or the Holy Spirit … but as man has never seen God, how does he know what one needs in the Spirit? He has a system he relies on—a type of formula he feeds from, and feels himself qualified to feed another from this same. Spiritual strife can be seen through many things—dishonesty, vanity, self-agenda, poor workmanship, disease, failed relationships or using others to place self in a better image for the world to see, often due to fears and insecurity … poor health due to recklessness and overindulgence … desiring a bad boy image, even trying so hard to look “holy” image …

        childishness …
