SCIENCE & SPIRITUALITY
I would like to make some further comments about Michael because I've heard from a couple of you that you have come in contact with some Jehovah's Witness material, and that the Jehovah's Witness claim that Michael is Jesus and that they get this revelation from the book of Jude which talks about Michael fighting with the devil over the body of Moses. This is how they come to the conclusion that Michael must be Jesus, and I would like to clarify that a little.
I don't believe that Michael is Jesus. I believe that Jesus is Michael. There is a difference in saying that Michael is Jesus and Jesus is Michael. What's the difference? The difference is that we have to ask ourselves if we have Jesus and we have Michael and the two are one, who is the predominate character? Is Jesus the predominate character or is Michael the predominate character? I suggest to you that Michael is the predominate character.
Michael has existed since the beginning. Michael is the name of the separated Elohim. Remember, the Father and the Son were one. Elohim and Jehovah were one. Elohim was in the bosom of the Father. If you look in the Old Testament you see that they always work hand in hand. The Father thinks, imagines, or commands and the Son does. The Son is the right hand of the Father, and the two are one, but when the creation was formed Elohim, or at least a part of Elohim, separated out to form this creation, and the name of the separated Elohim is Michael. The name of the seed that came forth is Michael.
Now remember, there is a difference between sperm and seed. Elohim is the Father's sperm, and at least a part of Himself separated and appeared in the abyss, dissolved in the waters of the abyss. Now that part of Elohim that was dissolved in the waters of the abyss that was separated from Jehovah, and whatever was left of Elohim there, became the seed and His name is Michael, the separated Elohim is Michael. Can you hear what I am saying? That part of Elohim that separated from the Father and the Son to become the seed that was dispersed in the waters of the abyss takes a new name because He's now separated from the Father and the Son. He becomes the seed that has the ability to reproduce the life of the Father and the Son. Can you hear it?
Now, you may recall from the Genesis series that after the separation took place and after the womb opened up in the midst of Jehovah because that's what the abyss is. It is a tear in the fabric of Jehovah. A womb opened up in the midst of Jehovah, and that tear in the fabric of Jehovah filled up with water, just like when you slice your skin and blood oozes out, when you slice an apple juice slices out, when you slice any kind of fruit or most kinds of fruit, it is not true of a banana, most kinds of fruit or a tomato, you slice and liquid oozes out. A tear occurred in Jehovah's fabric, and it filled with water, and we have types of it with pears and oranges and humans and all that. When you slice it liquid appears.
That's a type of what happened when the tear appeared in the garment, and the tear wasn't a tear of design. Jehovah wanted it to happen, He opened up a womb within Himself, and His Son, Elohim did it by sending a part of Himself, Elohim sent a part of Himself, fluid, into the waters. Just like when you open up a tomato you have liquid with the seeds of the tomato dispersed in the liquid. The only thing is that with a tomato or with any fruit down here in hell the seeds are distinct from the liquid. We could see them, we could pluck them out and isolate them, but the seed that came forth from the Father was so microscopic that it was completely dissolved in the waters just like. . . when you look at semen under a microscope the spermatozoa are distinct from the water that they swim in, but you need a microscope to look at it. If you don't have a microscope it just looks like water.
Well, that was the condition, but the separated Elohim whose name is Michael, He was completely dispersed through the waters and He was weak. If you remember, He was weak. Jehovah had to hover over the face of the waters to give Him strength, and now that we have done the series on Quantum Mechanics in Creation we know how Jehovah gave him strength. Jehovah hovered over the surface of the waters. Jehovah is a form of mechanical energy. He is a natural form of energy. He, of Himself, is energy, and when He hovered over the waters what He did was agitate the waters. He stirred up the waters. The waters were stagnant, they were not moving. Why? Because the seed in the waters didn't have the strength to swim.
Now, do not spermatozoa swim? They do, they swim, they swim in the water, and they swim by moving their tails. Spermatozoa have tails, and they move their tails, and they propel their bodies by moving their tails. Well, the seed that was in the waters of the abyss didn't have the energy or the strength to move, so Jehovah who is a form of mechanical energy, natural existing form of energy, hovered over the waters and actually, I believe, He must have touched the waters, and when He touched the waters He created an electrical field.
When this form of natural energy touched the waters it created an electrical field and it agitated the water. It stirred up the water. So, the particles of seed that were in the waters became stimulated, and they formed a magnetic field and they started moving. It was Jehovah's intention to start this seed moving. Now where we have an electric field meet a magnetic field. . . .according to physics, like objects repel one another. Both Jehovah and the seed were spirit, and as the waters started to move they repelled one another, and the seed that was in the water shot downward. The waters stirred up, and the seed started moving, and they were propelled downward. Now remember, there was a firmament that separated the waters from the dry earth.
The firmament is like a filter. The seed pierced through the filter, but the waters were not supposed to pass through the filter. Now, this is very interesting because in our world today if we had a filter that was small enough to screen out particles in liquid because sperm could be considered a particle in liquid, if we had a filter that was small enough to screen out the sperm it would let the water through. You can't screen out water. You can't have a filter that screens out water. Water would pass through the finest filter. Is this not correct? Correct. but it was the opposite in the spirit world.
The filter screened out the water but let the seed through. Can you hear this? It is the exact opposite in the spirit world than it is in this world. Personally, I cannot comprehend that. A filter that screens out water but lets through the seed, my carnal mind can't comprehend it, but I know that's what I am seeing. I also know that what happens in the spirit world is the exact opposite of this world. In the spirit world water flows upward. Water does not flow upward in this world.
I am going to leave it at this. It is just something that I don't understand, but I believe at this time that this is what the scriptures are telling us. The firmament allowed the seed through but kept the water out, and what was the purpose of keeping the water out? The purpose of keeping the water out was to keep the water separate from the earth. Why? When the water contacted the earth the earth became fertile. The earth, when it was dried out, was barren and could do no harm, but when the earth came in contact with the water she dissolved herself in the water and became clay and formed that clay into a reptilian animal.
Up until recently I have been calling him Adam, but we have just found out that the last Adam and the first Adam both existed at the beginning of time. June, could you make a note because I am going to forget what my point was. I stopped at the point that Michael was passing through the firmament, and now I want to talk a little about the first and the last Adam, and then I want to go back to that point.
The last and the first Adam were present in the Garden of Eden. Years ago, 18 years ago when I first started these studies I saw it but I didn't know what it meant. Jehovah put Adam in the Garden twice. Check it out yourself. Jehovah put Adam in the Garden twice, and each time, I believe it is Genesis 2, He put Adam in the Garden twice, and each time that He put Adam in the Garden, if you look in the interlinear text it is a different Hebrew word that's translated "put," but the English says, and God put Adam in the Garden, and God put Adam in the Garden. Couple of verses apart, but the English word "put" is a different translation of a different Hebrew word, and the one Hebrew word translated "put" signifies the imputed anointing, and the other Hebrew word translated "put" signified the imparted anointing. The difference being one can be lost, and the other cannot be lost. The imparted anointing cannot be lost.
What's an imparted anointing? Strength, life. The last Adam had an imparted anointing. He could not die because He was hooked into Jehovah and to Elohim, and He could not and would not ever die, but the first Adam had an imputed anointing. He had righteousness that was imputed unto him because of the last Adam's strength. Now, this in itself is a contradiction. I would think that the first Adam should be the last Adam and the last Adam should be the first Adam. I don't understand it myself, but I know that this is the way it is coming up in my studies, that Michael is the last Adam.
He is the one that will last, the one that cannot die. He is the one that's the beginning and the end. So, the last Adam is Michael I suggest to you, and He's the one that cannot die, and it was Michael Himself who was dissolved in the waters as the seed, He passed through the firmament, and He skimmed the surface of the earth in the Garden of Eden. If you recall, the dry earth that underneath the firmament is the Garden of Eden. The waters were above the firmament, and the dry earth was beneath the firmament, and the dry earth was the Garden. That's the Garden of Eden.
Now Michael, He started moving. He's the seed that's dispersed in the water, and Jehovah started those waters stirring up, came in and Jehovah's activity created an electric field and a magnetic field. And there was interference between the spirit of Jehovah and Michael, and Michael was propelled downward. He pierced through the firmament, and He skimmed the surface or the ashes or the dust of the earth. He skimmed just underneath the surface and implanted Himself as the seed in the dry earth that was underneath the firmament, and that dry earth bore fruit, and grass appeared, the beginnings of the Tree of Life appeared as grass. Now, this is the first Adam appearing as the grass, and this first Adam can be destroyed. The seed that He grew out of cannot be destroyed. He's plugged for all eternity. That's Elohim and Jehovah, but the growth from the seed can be destroyed, the first Adam.
Does this sound familiar to you? Is this not the exact same thing that I have told you with regard to ourselves, that the Lord Jesus Christ, the spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ in us cannot be destroyed, but that the forming Christ in us can be aborted? Have I not told you that? The Christ that's being formed in the individual, the Christ who is being raised up and trained and nurtured and developed we can abort. It can be destroyed in us, but the Lord Jesus Christ He cannot be destroyed. Now, He might leave us. I know the scripture says He will never leave us or forsake us, but if we turn our back on Him and turn toward sin we turn away from Him, and He will leave.
He will never leave or forsake those who are faithful to Him or crying out to Him, but those who walk away from Him, He will leave, but He can't die. It is a similar situation that existed at the beginning of time, Michael cannot die. The last Adam cannot die, the first Adam could and did die. Now, my whole premise, what I am talking about here, is that I disagree with the Jehovah's Witnesses who say that Michael is Jesus, and I am saying that Jesus is Michael, and I am not nit-picking. I am going to go on to show you the difference, but this is what we are talking about.
I am suggesting to you that Michael existed from the beginning. Jesus didn't exist from the beginning. Jesus is a man who was born, He had a mother, He was born of a woman, He had a recorded birth, and He had a recorded death. Michael is from forever. He's hooked up to Elohim and Jehovah, He's from eternity. How could we say that Jesus is Michael. Can you hear this now? Jesus died at 33 years of age. He had 33 years on this earth. How could we say that Jesus is the eternal Michael? Can you hear that the emphasis is on the wrong place? Can you hear it?
You've got to have it right, because if you don't have it right you are taking one step off in the wrong direction, and then you just have to come back and straighten yourself out, either you come back and straighten yourself out and you lose time or you don't come back, but it is not nit-picking. We have to get this straight. You have to put the authority where the authority belongs, and the authority is on Michael, not on Jesus. Is that diminishing Jesus' deity? No, it is not diminishing Jesus' deity, and I will tell you why, don't stop reading the message. Jesus is the Son of God, and He is the Savior of mankind, but you have to understand who Jesus was. You have to understand who Jesus is.
Who is Jesus? Jesus is a man that was born of a woman in whom Michael laughed ? at Him, and the first Adam, the living soul, joined together and formed a river of life within that very man Jesus who connected His very being and His very person to the eternal realm of God where Jehovah is, and then after they did that, after Michael and Adam reconnected the man Jesus to the eternal realm of God, they married the personality named Jesus and all three became one, and Jesus of Nazareth who was Christ became a permanent expression of Michael. Can you hear it?
I'll say it again. Jesus of Nazareth was not the first man who expressed the life of the last and first Adam. Elijah and Elisha also experienced having the river of life reestablished in them, of being reconnected to the eternal realm of God where Jehovah is, and both Elijah and Elisha have the experience of having this river of life within them marry their personality. Elijah was a personality. Elisha was a personality. In the New Testament, we are used to hearing that our soul was going to be saved. That is not a good word. I say personality, but if you need to hear soul to understand what I am saying, then say soul. Elijah's soul, his personality, married the river of life that was established in him, and he became one with the river.
Now, Elijah didn't dissolve completely. In Hinduism it is taught that we return back up to the great void which is nothingness. What does that mean in terms that we would understand here? Now this is Hinduism, I don't believe it. That the spirit that came down from heaven goes back up to heaven as a spirit, no personality, no salvation of the personality, just the return of the spirit above the firmament where there is peace. That's what Hinduism teaches. I don't teach that. I teach that the spirit that came down from heaven is rejoined to the river of life which is the unified last and first Adam. The unified last and first Adam marries the personality of the man, and this man becomes a glorified or magnificent man which is an expression of Michael. Can you hear what I am saying?
Jesus of Nazareth married the last and the first Adam. Jesus of Nazareth married the river of life. Jesus of Nazareth married Jehovah. He married eternity, and His personality was saved. His soul was saved, and He became an expression of Michael and Adam, and this expression of Michael and Adam became the Savior of mankind, if you can hear it. Jesus is God, Jesus is Savior of mankind. Who is Jesus? Jesus is an expression of Michael and Adam, the Son of God. Michael and Adam together are the kings of the creation. They are one, Michael and Adam are one.
Why? Because Adam is the plant that grew after Michael planted His seed in the dust of the earth. Into a what? The seed put down roots, and the roots were under the surface, and the grass grew on top of the surface, and the two are one. So, the scripture says Adam, the Son of God. Doesn't say, Michael, the Son of God. It says, Adam, the Son of God, but the two are one. Michael is the seed, Adam is that which grows, Adam is that which is born, but the two are one. Jesus of Nazareth, born of a woman, married the river of life and was saved and became the magnificent man who is the Savior of mankind.
COMMENT: Does the scripture, the last shall be first have any connection with it?
PASTOR VITALE: Yes it does. Jesus was the first Adam when He said that.
Let's review how Jesus was the first Adam. Jesus was a mortal man, I am sorry if that offends you, but He was born of a woman, and He was not the Son of God until after He overcame the devil and Satan in the temptation. Jesus was a mortal man, and the Holy Spirit hovered over Mary and she conceived, but Jesus was a mortal man who was born with the Holy Spirit. Jesus was a mortal man who was born with the Holy Spirit, and that Holy Spirit raised the first Adam from the dead in the man Jesus, and that first Adam that was raised from the dead overcame Jesus' sin nature, that's Romans 1:4.
He overcame by the Spirit of Holiness, and He was the resurrected first Adam. He was in full stature, and talking and saying, the last shall be first. Saying, the last Adam Michael shall raise the first Adam from the dead, and then the first Adam that's raised from the dead shall become the last Adam. It is looking now like the Holy Spirit is Michael. That's what it is looking like now. The last Adam shall become the first Adam. The last Adam goes to a man, crucifies his human spirit, and the first Adam rises from the dead in that man. The last Adam becomes the first Adam, and then the first Adam when He goes on to the third stage of resurrection becomes the last Adam. He was saying to all the Jews that He was talking to, He was saying to them, you too are going to become the first Adam.
Now when Jesus was saying this He was the first Adam. He was saying, I'm becoming the last Adam, and you are becoming the first Adam, and then you will become the last Adam too. Sounds confusing. Did I make any sense at all? If you want to look at this honestly. If you are not manifested and you haven't shut the tape off yet, you really have to consider this. If Jesus is the Savior of mankind, and He's the one that's raising Adam from the dead in us, or however you believe it, He's the one saving us, however you want to believe it, who did it for Jesus? You have to ask yourself, who did it for Jesus?
Now, of course, if you believe that Jesus was born as God and that He was making statues of birds fly away and everything like that, well then maybe this message isn't for you, but I am telling you, brethren, if you are honest with yourself there are many witnesses that Jesus was not as God. I really can't go over that whole thing now, but we have it on other messages. He was born of a woman, and He was born with the Holy Spirit, and He had an experience as a Jewish male. I believe with the Holy Spirit, I could say it was God, but I believe it was the Holy Spirit, that interacted with His human spirit, and raised the first Adam from the dead, and that first Adam overcame His sin nature as typified in the temptation, His own sin nature, Satan and the devil.
Christ in Him overcame His own sin nature, and the man Jesus ascended into the first stage of resurrection as the first Adam, and then when Jesus went on to the second and third stage of resurrection He became the last Adam. He was both. He said, I am the first and the last Adam, and now Jesus, the Lord Jesus in spirit form, is in the earth today doing for mankind what Michael did for Him, what the Holy Spirit did for Him. Well, what does that mean now? Who's who, oh how confusing! Well, Jesus of Nazareth who's glorified, who's the Savior of mankind, He is the first and the last Adam.
What does that mean? It means sometimes He acts like the first Adam and sometimes He acts like the last Adam. Jesus said, I am the Son of Man, and He also said I am the Son of God. What does that mean? It means that sometimes He acted like the Son of Man, and sometimes He acted like the Son of God. Now when did He act like the Son of Man? Brethren, when He submitted to the crucifixion. You can't crucify the Son of God. It wasn't the Son of God that was crucified, it was the Son of Man that was crucified. I am telling you to check it out in your concordance and in your scripture. Jesus never ever said that the Son of God was going to be lifted up or crucified or anything. It was always the Son of Man.
What does that mean? His humanity was crucified. So, if Jesus said I am the Son of God and I am the Son of Man and if you follow it through in the scripture you will see that He did certain things as the Son of Man and certain activities as the Son of God. In the same way that I tell you, He was the first and the last Adam, and there were certain activities that He did as the first Adam, and there were other activities that He did as the last Adam, and one of the activities that He does, or the or His activity as the last Adam is to function as Michael. That's why we see in Rev. 12, Michael and His angels fighting the dragon and his angels. It is really the spirit of Jesus Christ in his office of Michael, the warrior. If you can hear it, and if you don't stop and pray about it you are foolish, and you are a silly woman, and I am not bullying you into believing this. I said, if you won't at least pray about it you are foolish and you are a silly woman if you won't at least pray with an open mind.
When is Jesus acting like the first Adam? When He reproduces His nature in us. We are having Christ formed in us because we have received a cutting of Jesus Christ's life. Jesus Christ was raised up from seed. Who is the seed? I just said it at the beginning of the message, who's the seed? Michael is the seed, the separated Elohim. Elohim is the sperm, but Michael is the seed. The separated Elohim that passed through the firmament that skimmed through the surface of the earth underneath the firmament and planted Himself as the seed out of which the first Adam grew.
COMMENT: Did I understand you to say that Michael is the Holy Spirit?
PASTOR VITALE: Yes, Michael functions as the Holy Spirit. The word of God is the seed and Michael is the seed, and the Holy Spirit is not the seed, and that is a fine line difference. I'll try to give it to you tonight.
COMMENT: Is this the visible or the invisible realm?
PASTOR VITALE: Xxxx is talking about drawing #1, and this is the invisible realm. This is before the creation incarnated. If you look at your drawings you will see that I have the outline of the abyss. I am showing you the surface of the abyss. When the creation becomes visible, the visible creation is an image which will appear on the surface so nothing is up here right now. The reality that will project the image is down here in the Garden of Eden.
This grass which is the beginnings of the Tree of Life is, as you can see, Michael is the seed that has put down the roots underneath the ground, and the first Adam, and Michael is the last Adam, and the first Adam is the grass that's appearing on top of the ground, and the two make one plant, and the end of this whole thing is that the two of them together are going to step up through the firmament and project an image on the surface of the waters, but I didn't include that in this drawing because that's not what we are dealing with tonight, and I don't want to make the drawing too complicated. It is complicated enough.
As you can see, I've drawn the outline of the abyss, I've drawn the firmament, the waters are above the firmament, the dry barren earth is beneath the firmament, and I've drawn it this way, I don't know if this is accurate, I'm trying to show a principle that the Garden of Eden is beneath the firmament. A garden is where earth is, so I've drawn the Garden of Eden on the surface of the earth, and you can see that the waters are above the firmament, and the seed, the separated Elohim called Michael or the last Adam, is dissolved in the waters. Now Jehovah hovers over the surface of the earth and creates an electrical field which agitates the particles or the seed that are in the water.
Remember, Elohim said, Let there be light. Well, that's what happened. Jehovah stirred the waters up, the stagnant waters up, and interference between Jehovah's electric field and Michael's magnetic field, and these particles gathered together in bundles and became photons of light, they became a light stream which was driven downward because of an interference reaction between Jehovah's electric field and Michael's magnetic field. It bundled up some of Michael's particles, they became photons of light, and this is the beginnings of the river of life, Michael flowing down through the firmament, skimming the surface of the earth. this word surface is the Hebrew word that's translated dust, and Jehovah and Elohim made the man out of the dust of the earth.
I asked the Lord that for years, why the dust of the earth? What's the difference the surface of the earth and the earth underneath? Why did He only make man from the surface of the earth? Well, here's the answer. Because Michael is the seed, and He just buried Himself shallowly under the surface of the earth, and we found out in our translation of Genesis 2 that because Michael's light stream came to the surface of the earth that the surface of the earth received consciousness, but the rest of the earth remained dark and unconscious. We have that in the Alternate Translation.
So, the dust is conscious, the surface of the earth is conscious, and the dust is the man, and the rest of the earth remained dark and unconscious and formed a gravitational field, a strong pulling downward. Now, just use your imagination. If the earth has this strong downward gravitational pull, can you imagine for a second the strength that it would have taken for Michael to not go all the way down, but to just skim the surface and step back up. Tremendous strength. Plus, this gravitational pull is drawing the waters above the firmament, but apparently it had to be possible to keep those waters up there because Jehovah would not have commanded it, and Elohim would not have commanded it if it was not possible.
I know I am lacking details here. I don't really have a 100% understanding here. I just know that our God is righteous, and that there had to be a way to keep that water up there because when the water came down it became one with the earth, and the earth dissolved in the waters and became clay, and civilization which was designed to be on the surface of the water, civilization was designed to be an aquatic animal, an animal that swims in the waters.
Man was intended to be a civilized man who was an aquatic animal who would swim in the waters above the firmament, a water based aquatic animal. The waters fell down over the earth and mankind became, not an aquatic animal that swims in the clear waters, but he became a reptile, a reptilian solid animal existing underneath the firmament called the serpent. That's what happened. So this gravitational pull was intense, but apparently, my understanding at this time is that this firmament had the power to filter out the water, and it was Adam the living soul's job to guard the Garden.
Now remember, this river of life that's flowing through and planting his seed under the surface of the earth, it is not a one time thing. This is a river of life that's flowing freely. Even though the seed is planted there it is continuously flowing through the Garden, continuously coming through, and somehow Adam had the strength to keep the waters above the firmament, but somehow Adam was tricked, you see. Think of him as a man in charge of a draw bridge. There are certain boats that you let through, and other boats that you don't let through. Somehow Adam had the authority to let the river of life through but to filter out the rest of the waters, and he knew how to do it. but somehow he was tricked into thinking that the waters that were not a part of the river of life were the river of life. Somehow, he was tricked. I don't understand it. I just believe that the scripture says, he failed to recognize the potential for evil within himself.
Now remember, we are showing Adam as the grass, but Adam is the mind of the whole creature, and everything in the abyss is one creature just like we have a brain and a heart so we also have legs and arms, but we are our personality. We are not our legs and we are not our arms. Adam was the brain of the whole creature, and the creature included the earth underneath it that was unconscious and the waters that were above the firmament. All of that was a part of the whole creature. the King James translation calls it cattle in Genesis 1, the first time you see cattle so Adam was the one in charge of the filter.
The river of life was different than the waters that were not a part of the river of life. How is that? Now remember, the waters above the firmament had Michael, the separated Elohim, the seed of the creature, dissolved in the waters, just like spermatozoa up here in the semen. I said this earlier, when you look at semen it looks like water. If you put it under a microscope you can break it down to water and spermatozoa. Adam had everything he needed to let the spermatozoa through, to let the seed through, but to not let the water part through, but he couldn't tell the difference. He couldn't tell the difference.
That part I don't have a full understanding of. As the months go by we get a deeper understanding. I know this is a deeper understand than I had at the time that I preached it in Quantum Mechanics in creation, but I still don't have a full idea of how he could and couldn't tell the difference, but he couldn't tell the difference. He had the strength to do it. He had the strength to keep the water part out. He had all the knowledge that he needed, and he had the strength to do it but he couldn't tell the difference.
This diagram on this board is a diagram of the invisible world because the visible part of this whole creation will only be up here on the surface. Now remember, I have it drawn on the board from top to bottom, but it is not a creation that is from top to bottom. It is from inside to out, and the only part that you see is that which is on the surface. You can't see my heart, you can't see my lungs, you just see the surface of me. The only part of this creature is the image that appears on the surface, and the image isn't even real.
The reality is the grass that will eventually become a tree down here, and the seed that produced the grass, that is the only reality. Actually, the seed is the only reality because the seed is what is eternal. As far as my comment earlier that the Holy Spirit is not the seed. I really would like to put that on hold for a while. I am not really sure, and I am praying about it.
This diagram showing the river of life, this exists inside of each human being. this is the pattern for the whole creation, and it is also the pattern for each human being, just as each one of us is a cosmos. This diagram is a diagram of our spiritual internal workings, the spiritual internal workings of every human being. Of course, of the ones restored because we see the river of life. The scripture clearly says that each man is a cosmos unto himself. Just as we are a part of a greater whole we are a whole within ourselves. We are part of this great black hole that we fell into, and each one of us is a black hole in and of ourselves. So, this exists on all levels just as if the atom exists on all levels or the basic structure of the atom exists on all levels.
If you look at a picture of an atom you can relate it to a picture of our galaxy with all of the planets rotating about our sun. Well, on a microscopic level that's what an atom looks like. It has a nucleus which can be likened to the sun with orbitals and electrons orbiting around the nucleus just like our planets orbiting around the sun. So, the atom is the basic structure of this fallen creation. This is the basic spiritual structure of each individual man and of the creation as a whole. What I have drawn here is a man who has the river of life restored in him. This is not a diagram of a black hole. This is the diagram of the spiritual being of Jesus of Nazareth, and of Elijah and Elisha, all of which were glorified.
Jesus is the only one that's the Savior of mankind, but all three were glorified. Why were they glorified? Because this river of life was restored in them, and the river of life is the last and the first Adam flowing freely through and dominating the entire creature both the earth underneath and the seas above. The river of life is King of heaven and earth. It is not hell any more, but it is heaven and earth, and this river of life flowing through heaven, the waters above, and the earth beneath is a purifying force. It is a river of fire, it is a river of purification that keeps the earth barren, and this river of life is the last and the first Adam linked together so completely that they will never be separated again. That's the river of life.
The man in whom this river of life is appearing is a magnificent man because if the river of life is restored in you to this degree, either you are ready to about to be married to the river of life. You, your personality, your soul, who you are, you are to be joined completely to this river of life and become one with the last and the first Adam, and you will become a glorified magnificent man who is an expression of the last and the first Adam who is the Son of God. Now it is not going to be me, Sheila, who is Jesus. It is not Jesus who is Michael, it is Michael who is Jesus. It is not going to be me, Sheila, who is an expression of Jesus Christ. It is going to be Jesus Christ expressing Himself through me.
Let me say that again, Elijah was glorified, Elisha was glorified, and Jesus was glorified. Now we are the offspring of Jesus, the glorified man, Jesus. We are the offspring of the glorified man, Jesus. I am drawing an analogy. I am saying it is not accurate to say that Jesus is Michael. It is really accurate to say that Jesus is an expression of Michael. Michael is the predominate one. Michael is Jesus, but people get upset when you say that, and they think that you are saying that Jesus isn't the Son of God so we are going to say that Jesus is an expression of Michael, but now Jesus is our Father. Jesus, the glorified man, is our Father. We are partaking of Jesus' glory.
Jesus was raised up from seed. Michael visited the man, Jesus, directly you see, but it is the glorified Jesus who's visiting us, if you can hear it. So, what I am saying is that you cannot, no longer say that Michael is Jesus than you could say that we are Jesus. You cannot any more easily say that Michael is Jesus than you could say that we are Jesus. In Michael's relationship to Jesus, Michael is the predominate one. In Jesus' relationship to us, Jesus is the predominate one. You've got to give the glory where it belongs, you've got to give the authority where it belongs. Jesus is not Michael, Michael is Jesus' forefather. Michael is not Jesus. Jesus is an expression of Michael. Jesus is our forefather. We are an expression of Jesus. We are another generation. I will try and put what I just said on the board so that you may understand it more easily.
COMMENT: Shouldn't we say that we will be an expression of Christ Jesus? Well, we are an expression of Christ Jesus, but in view of what I was just saying the answer is nod, because we have to ask ourselves who Christ Jesus is, and Christ Jesus is the last and the first Adam together. When the last and the first Adam marry a personality that personality becomes a magnificent man. It is Christ Jesus in you, and it is Christ Jesus in me and Christ Jesus within the man Jesus. Christ Jesus is the river of life, that's the last and the first Adam together. Christ Jesus is the last and the first Adam. Christ Jesus when He married the personality of Jesus of Nazareth became Jesus the magnificent man.
Drawing #2, a genealogy, a spiritual genealogy of Michael and Adam, the last and the first Adam. Their first incarnation was in Moses. Their second incarnation was in Elijah, and their third incarnation. . . well, I don't even know if incarnation is the right word. Let me say that again, This is a genealogy. Michael and Adam reproduced themselves for the first time in recorded history in the man Moses. How do we know that? Well, if for no other reason he appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration as a part of Jesus' spiritual lifetime.
Also, we have done some investigation in this ministry into the scriptures that indicate that Michael was fighting with the devil for the body, I suggest to you it was the living body, which means the personality of Moses. That's in the New Testament. In the Old Testament in the book of Numbers we see Jehovah telling Moses that he could not go over into the promised land. I suggest to you He was not talking about the physical promised land. He was telling Moses that he was not qualified to ascend above the firmament, he was not qualified to be glorified and the reason that he did not qualify to be glorified is not because he hit some silicon rock in the wilderness, some physical rock, that's what rocks are made of, an element called silicon.
Moses was not eligible to go on to glorification because the Christ in him did not mature to the point that he could cope with the sins of the people and teach them out of Christ. You see, brethren, the commission to the Sons of God is to raise up some out of all or as many of the mortal men in their generation as are possible, and we do not raise up Sons of God, we do not mature Christ in other people by putting them under the law or by rebuking them without explanation. Why? Rebuke without explanation affords no opportunity for the disciple to change.
If you merely rebuke them and you do not explain to them in a manner that will enable them to at least make a choice as to whether or not they desire to change you have cut off their opportunity to mature into Christ because Satanic judgment without explanation as to what they did wrong and without support to help them to change, if they want to change, does not produce a Son. For mortal man to ascend into a Son of God he must change because he chooses to change. He must change from his carnal mind into his Christ mind because he has been educated to understand that he has two minds, because he has been educated to understand that one mind leads to death and the other mind leads to life, because he has been educated to understand that he can only follow the path of Christ by waging a righteous warfare against his carnal mind, Leviathan, and Satan, the unconscious part of that mind.
The only way a mortal man can become a Son is to overcome his carnal mind, and that can only be done through understanding. Moses, for what ever reason did not, or Christ in Moses did not overcome to the point where he could correct the people whom he was given charge over in a manner that would give these people the opportunity to mature into Christ. This is told in parable form by saying that he hit the rock instead of speaking to the rock, but I looked up all the words in the Hebrew, and the Hebrew translated rock in the first account was all right to hit the rock and is a different Hebrew word than the word rock in the second account where he was supposed to speak to the rock.
The significance being, before the Christ mind was conceived in the Children of Israel, now the rock is signifying the Children of Israel, it was acceptable for God for Moses to smite them, to hit them, to punish them because He had to bring them into order, but once the Christ mind was. . . .and that was the hitting of the rock to produce the water, but once the Christ mind was conceived in the Children of Israel they would die on the vine if Moses continued to rebuke them without teaching them. So Jehovah said to Moses, don't rebuke them without teaching them, now it is no longer time to put them under the law, it is no longer the time to wound them, to hit them, and to demand obedience, now it is time to talk to them because they have to come into obedience because of their own choice.
Now is the time for the Children of Israel to come into obedience by their own choice, and after you talk to them and teach them if they choose not to come into obedience by their own choice then, says Jehovah, they will have to deal with me. What does that mean? That means judgment, but the Christ mind has been conceived in His people, and I want you to teach them, I don't care if they are killing you, if they are murdering you, with their minds of course, if they are driving you to distraction, I am calling you to teach this rebellious, stiff-necked people so that they will have an opportunity to choose good or evil, life or death.
Yes, that is my interpretation of the account of hitting and speaking to the rock, but there definitely is a second witness to it. Moses was so grieved by the people that Jehovah had to appoint 70 elders to assist him. Moses was having a problem disciplining the Children of Israel and that is a very strong witness to what I am saying. So, we see that Michael and Adam were the river of life, were restored in Moses, but they did not succeed in bringing Moses to term. You might say Moses was a pregnant woman in relationship to Michael and Adam. Why did Michael fail? And Michael, you see, is like the family name.
The scripture doesn't always say the last and the first Adam. The scripture doesn't always say Michael and Adam. In some instances it just says Michael, but Adam is present. Just like the scripture says Leviathan, but it doesn't always and Leviathan and Satan. Sometimes it says Leviathan and Satan, but the two are always together. So Michael and Adam were appearing in the man Moses, but Michael failed to bring Moses to term. Why did Michael fail to bring Moses to term? The Old Testament tells us that Michael failed to bring him to term, but the New Testament in the book of Jude tells us why.
It says that Michael was struggling with the devil over the body of Moses. That Greek word translated body can easily be translated live body, it doesn't have to mean a dead body. I suggest to you that the live body is talking or speaking about the personality of the man Moses. How can I say that? Because Moses' carnal personality or carnal mind was dead. The only part of Moses that was alive was the part of him that was in Christ, and Moses' personality was alive because he was in Christ doing all of these great signs and wonders for Jehovah.
Why was Michael struggling with the devil? Well, you have to find out who the devil is, brethren. You have to solve the puzzle. Who's the devil? The devil is the physical body and the mortal personality of mortal man. Well, what does that mean? What is Jude saying to us? He's saying that Michael was present in Moses. Now where Michael is, Adam is. Now every place that the first Adam is Michael is not necessarily there yet, but where ever Michael is the first Adam is there because Michael beings forth the first Adam. What was this fight all about? I suggest to you that Moses' mortal personality was not fully in agreement with Michael, with the first and last Adam. Moses' mortal personality was not fully in agreement with them.
If you remember the teaching here, to be glorified, to even to on to the second stage of resurrection, probably to go into the first stage of resurrection we have a vote. We, mortal man, we out here in outer darkness, we who have two minds, the Christ mind and the carnal mind. The mind that we agree with is the way we go. We must choose, every step of the way is a choice. That's why the young Sons of God must be taught so that they can have an honest choice and then if they choose their carnal mind then they have to deal with Jehovah, but the Son of God in the flesh has an obligation to instruct the disciples, the potential Sons of God, so that they have enough information to make the right choice if they make it; therefore, if they don't make the right choice and Jehovah reigns down judgment on them it is a righteous act because this is a potential Son who is fully educated and has chosen evil over good, therefore righteous corrective judgment is legal.
Moses' mortal personality was not in agreement with Michael. Michael was struggling with the devil, he was struggling with Moses' mortal personality trying to convince him to agree, but apparently Moses had a bitter spirit because of what happened to him in Egypt or whatever reason he just never overcame his carnal nature in this area of ministering to the Sons, and I want to tell you it is a very hard thing to do because you are dealing with young Sons who do not have control over their carnal minds, and you are dealing with young Sons that don't even see the activity of their own carnal minds, and they are trying to kill you, and it takes a supernatural work of God to instruct these people in love when they are trying to kill you, and Moses failed. Moses failed and Michael in Moses failed. Michael failed to bring Moses over to his side, if you can hear it.
And Jehovah was saying to Moses, don't worry Moses, don't worry about it, you will have another chance, we have this in the Alternate Translation, you will have another chance to meet your adversary in the flesh again. Just as I tell you, if you fail in a particular trial there is no condemnation now in Christ Jesus to those who are called according to His purposes. What does that mean? If you are confessing your sins and repenting, and you are going on there is no condemnation to you. You have got to confess it and see it so that Christ can mature in you, but Moses failed. Moses failed and Michael failed to bring Moses to term. Michael's next incarnation was in Elijah. Now please note that Moses was born of a woman and a father. Elijah was not born, we don't have any record of his genealogy at all.
What am I suggesting? I am suggesting that Michael's attempt to restore the man Moses above the firmament to glorify him failed. Michael's's attempt to bring a man, born of a man and a woman, a father and a mother, to glorification failed, and Michael's next attempt to bring a man to glorification was a man who was not born of a man and a woman. I believe that Elijah was an immortal. If this is the first tape you are hearing you are going to have to listen to other tapes. Michael succeeded in bringing Elijah unto glorification.
Moses was Michael's first try called the first generation, and Elijah was Michael's second attempt called the second generation, and Michael's third attempt, attempt to what? To bring the whole of humanity out of hell and back up above the firmament, Michael's third attempt was now through Elijah because Elijah had overcome. Now listen, this is a crucial point that we were talking about earlier. Michael and Adam succeeded in bringing Elijah to glorification.
What does that mean? Michael succeeded in completely joining with the man Elijah, so completely that the three became one magnificent man, and Elijah became a glorified spirit because of his union with Michael and Adam. Michael's third generation came through Elijah who overcame, and Elijah had two offspring. Elijah had one offspring, Elisha, that's the third generation.
We did our deep study in II Kings 2 which clearly revealed that it was the spirit of Elijah that came down from above the firmament to save Elisha from calamity. Elisha had an imputed full stature. Elisha was in a mortal condition whereby he was standing above the powers and principalities of this world when Elijah was supporting him and strengthening him to do it, but when Elijah ascended above the firmament and was no longer available to assist Elisha in keeping his carnal mind under control Elisha's carnal mind broke away, and it would have been the end of Elisha's dominion over his own sin nature except for the fact that the Spirit of Elijah came down from above the firmament and saved Elisha from his other evil self. But we have no record at all that says that Elisha reproduced himself.
We know that Elisha had a school of the prophets, but I have to date found no information in the scripture that would indicate that Elisha produced another glorified man. I don't know if I said it or not, but Elisha was glorified at the end, and I know all of you who read the King James translation think that he died and was buried, but we did a deep research in those scriptures and we found out that he died and he was buried and he was raised from the dead and he was glorified and that the King James translation is not an accurate translation. So we are talking about the third generation now. Elijah had one offspring, Elisha. I have no reason to believe that anyone of Elisha's prophets from his school, Elisha had a school of the sons of the prophets, none of them were glorified to the best of my knowledge to understand.
So we see Elijah has another offspring in the man Jesus. I know you think that the spirit of Elijah was in John the Baptist, but we checked that out in the Greek, and I suggest to you that's an inaccurate translation. The Spirit of Elijah was in the man Jesus, and I believe the Greek reflects that, if you can see it in the Greek. So Elijah had a second offspring. Now who was Elijah? Elijah is a personality that was joined to Michael so completely that this man Elijah became a magnificent man. So it is Michael and Adam and Elijah that are making this magnificent man called Elijah.
Now remember, it is Michael's intention to restore the whole of humanity back up above the firmament, and Elisha didn't do it. Elijah's first born didn't do it so Elijah had another spiritual offspring. If you can receive it Jesus said, look at it in the Greek. This is the spirit of Elijah. He was talking about Himself. Jesus and Elisha, two offspring that make up the third generation, and Jesus is reproducing Himself. Jesus, the second offspring of the spirit of Elijah is now giving birth to His own offspring. I don't know if giving birth is right. He is now begetting his own offspring, and the offspring that's coming forth in this hour who are the children of Jesus of Nazareth who was glorified and became a magnificent man because of His marriage to Michael and the first Adam will be the last generation of mortal men, and they will continue to mature until they mature into the endless age of magnificent men.
I have drawn them as suns because the magnificent man has no permanent shape. Jesus appeared to Paul as a ball of light, and the magnificent man can take any form that he wants. He can look like a mortal man, he can look like a ball of light. Only God knows what we will be looking like after the earth is purified. So, Jesus is the third generation of Michael and Adam, and He Himself is reproducing. . . .the scripture does not call us the last generation. It does not call us the 4th generation, it does call us the 42nd generation, and it calls us the last generation. I haven't found the term the 4th generation anywhere, but we are the offspring of Jesus Christ, and if you need to say this to understand it, Elijah is our grandfather, and Michael is our original or eldest ancestor.
COMMENT: You signify in this age of magnificent men, do those atoms represent the spirit?
PASTOR VITALE: They are not atoms, they are suns, because I really don't know how to draw a magnificent man since they have no permanent shape. Remember Jesus is our sun of righteousness. Actually, it is not Jesus. It is Christ that's rising, the Morning Star is rising within us. He is our Sun of Righteousness so a mature spirit is liken unto a sun. This is very exciting. Has this helped you to understand what we were talking about earlier? Praise the Lord. It is looking like Michael is the Holy Spirit, and that would make the Holy Spirit the seed and the Word of God, and they are all the same, they are all one. I am still waiting for clarification on that.
