Scriptures Commented On (In Order Of Appearance): Heb. 1:1-12, Rom. 11:16, SOS 2:9, Ezek. 1:22, Lk. 13:11, Job 28:12-13, 17, Gen. 31:40 Job 6:15-16, Job 37:10, Job 38:29, Rev. 21:11, Rev. 22:1, Is. 9:2, Matt. 4:16, Acts 22:6-7, Rev. 9:1, Jn. 5:25, 1 Cor. 11:10, Acts 22:10,12-13, Acts 9:18-19, Matt. 7:13, Lk. 3:5, 2 Kings 1:8, Matt. 3:3, Lk. 13:13, Acts 9:10-11, Is. 51:23, Acts 9:12, Heb. 12:13, Dan. 11:10, Dan. 10:13, Josh. 6:20, 2 Pet. 3:10, Rev. 16:15

<LivingEM> Praise the Lord. It is good to be in the On-line House of the Lord. Are there any questions or comments?

Overcomer, were you the one who asked in me why Joseph's genealogy is in the Scripture, even through he is not Jesus' physical father?

<Overcomer> yes

<LivingEM> The Lord gave me the answer. The Lord never ceases to amaze me. The answer to your question "oozed" into my mind, while I was eating dinner after an exhausting day of office work, and was so tired that I could not even speak at the dinner table.

I have told you many times that it is Christ Jesus, the Savior in the midst of us, who manifests as a "thought." The Lord Jesus Christ, who was glorified and now dwells in the world above with Jehovah, has a much louder voice because he shouts to us "from the other side." (Jn. 6:25).

This is the answer to your question: Joseph was in the role of an adoptive father. It is often said that the adoptive father is more of a father than the man who planted the seed. Why is this? Because the father that is nearby imparts everything that he is to the child. He imparts his emotions, his intellect, his morality, his knowledge, his experience, and his very spirit engraves the nature of the child.

The spirit of Elijah generated the child, Jesus, but it was the resurrected Adam in the midst of Joseph, who nurtured him. Joseph was a Levite, a member of the priestly tribe. He was a Godly man, schooled in the Jewish law, and a practitioner of it.

Joseph was a product of the several thousand years of spiritual cleansing which was imparted to Israel through their covenant with Jehovah. The spirit of Elijah implanted the seed in the child, Jesus, but the man, Joseph, who was already walking in the light of the glorious gospel of God, engraved the seed that was planted. Thank you for asking that question. The answer is a great blessing to me.

So we see, once again, that God in the flesh, ministers to men in the flesh more perfectly than a disembodied spirit. This is the whole principle behind the calling forth of Elohim's sons. Mortal man, in his fallen condition, has trouble hearing from the Spirit of God, and not only does he have trouble, but in addition, is plagued with communications from his strong enemy, Satan and Leviathan, who boldly proclaim that they are God.

For this reason saith the Lord, I have provided teachers for you, men like yourselves, who experience the same troubles in this world that you do, who feel pain like you do, but whose ears are open to my voice, and sometimes to my face. Stone not my prophets, saith the Lord, for no good can come of this ignorant attitude. Destruction follows after those whose pride is against my Son, and against the personalities who serve him, but this destruction is not of me. It is of your own doing, your own iniquity shall correct you, saith the Lord, for it is written, "you shall surely reap what you have sown."

Those who yield to the evil in their carnal mind shall produce the fruit of that evil communication with Satan within their own mind. Every evil thought that the personality agrees with produces an offspring, and that evil, spiritual offspring remains with the personality who birthed it, until repentance comes forth, and the promise of deliverance is manifested.

I had intended to pursue the concept of Christ Jesus oozing into my mind before the prophecy came forth. Does anyone have anything to say before I go forward with this line of thought ?

<overcomer> I thought it was interesting in this prophecy that the Lord said, "and sometimes they see my face. "Not just his voice, but his face.

<LivingEM> Do a know what this means?

<JSNGSNG> HIS NATURE?

<overcomer> no

<LivingEM> The word "face," means "the front part," or "the part which is seen."

This is speaking about Christ Jesus in the flesh of a mortal man. Some people hear from God for themselves, but can also recognize Him manifesting through another mortal man. No matter how anointed we are, we must partake of Christ Jesus, wherever He is appearing, or we shall suffer the loss of his communication to us through that other person.

It is very important that we understand that Christ can manifest through a person who is irresponsible in their personality, that Christ can manifest through someone who is not a Christian, and through someone who is leading an unholy lifestyle. How to this be, you ask. The answer is simple. The Lord Jesus Christ uses whatever and whoever He can to communicate with us.

The person with the most holy lifestyle may not have a knowledge of what the Lord desires to tell us. The Lord, Jesus, does not lay hold of someone's mind, and possess it, to deliver His message, although this is what Michael did in the old Testament.

The angel of the Lord overshadowed, or lay upon, the carnal mind of the old Testament prophets to impart Jehovah's message to the people. The old Testament prophets were holy men who had a relationship with the Lord. Therefore, the Angel of the Lord had access to them. An angel must have access to us before he can cover our mind.

Today, the Lord is no longer speaking through his holy prophets. Does anyone know who He is speaking through?

<JSNGSNG> Christ Jesus in his sons

<LivingEM> Yes.

Heb 1:1-2, God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, (KJV)

Verse 2, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds. (KJV)

<LivingEM> Christ Jesus is holy, even when He is dwelling in a spiritually unclean, mortal man.

Rom. 11:16, For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. (KJV)

<LivingEM> Therefore, Christ Jesus can speak out of a personality whose lifestyle may be offensive.

<LivingEM> We must learn to hear His voice wherever it is appearing, even when He speaks from behind the lattice of a mortal personality.

SOS 2:9, My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice. (KJV)

<LivingEM> The Hebrew word translated "at," Strong's # 4480, can also be translated "above," and the Hebrew word translated "shewing," Strong's # 6692, can be translated "shining."

ALTERNATE TRANSLATION, SOS 2:9, Christ Jesus stands behind the wall of our personality and physical body, looking at us from the upper window of creation, shining through the lattice of our carnal mind.

"LATTICE":

(a) An open framework made of strips of metal, wood, or similar material, overlapped, or overlaid, in a regular, usually crisscross, pattern,

(b) A structure, such as a window, screen, or trellis, made of or containing such a framework.

(c) Physics: a regular, periodic configuration of points, particles, or objects throughout an area or space, especially the arrangement of ions or molecules in a crystalline solid

<LivingEM> "Solid," is the key word, that indicates that this is a of description of the carnal mind. The Lord is not solid, He is a spiritual man who has the power to change His shape at will.

The English word "crystal" appears twice in the Old Testament. I always thought that this word had to do with the Spirit of God because of the way it's used in Ezek. 1:22, but it now appears that this is not the case.

Ezek. 1:22, And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above. (KJV)

<LivingEM> The Hebrew word translated "crystal," Strong's # 7140, means "ice," and comes from a root which means "to make oneself bald." Baldness is described as a curse in the Old Testament. Strong's # 7140 also can be translated "frost (of the night)," or "ice crystals."

The Hebrew word translated "color," is the same Hebrew word that is translated "eye." We discovered long ago that the Scripture almost always uses this Hebrew word in a spiritual context because it means much more than the physical eye. It means the whole visible world that the eye perceives. So we see that the phrase "color of crystal," really means "the world of ice," or "the world of the night frost."

We discovered years ago when we preached message # 31, Babylon Is Fallen, that "the north" signifies Satan's stomping ground. Contrary to the popular myth, Satan's world is not hot, but cold. Our God is the consuming fire (Deut 4:24, 9:3; Heb. 12:29), more familiarly known as "the Lake of Fire." Satan represents the world which is as far away from the life giving heat of the Sun of the Righteousness (Mal. 4:2), as possible. Satan prevails over the world that Jesus called "outer darkness," that place where the spiritual sun does not shine.

Ezek. 1:22, And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above. (KJV)

<LivingEM> The Hebrew word translated "stretched forth," Strong's # 5186, can also be translated "to bend down," or "to bend over," and the Hebrew word translated "head" can also be translated "captain." The "window above"is speaking about the upper window of the two windows of creation.

ALTERNATE TRANSLATION, Ezek. 1:22: The Captain of the living creature appeared above the dreadful world of ice, [which] bent [Adam], the head of the upper [window] down [into Leviathan's circular timeline].

<LivingEM> You may recall the recent teaching that the Scriptural term "bowed over," means that the fiery serpent interferes, at the belly [the third energy center], with the straight, upward path of Abel [who is piercing through to the heart center], and diverts his straight path to a circular one which curves him back down into the root energy center.

Lk 13:11, And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. (KJV)

<LivingEM> This woman may or may not have been physically bowed over, but there is no doubt in my mind that she was spiritually bowed over. This means that, even though she was a daughter of Abraham, she had failed to pierce through into her heart center where the Tree of Life is.

So we see, that the concept of the Lord standing behind a lattice describes the positional relationship of the mind of Christ to the carnal mind.

The carnal mind is a crystalline solid. Every Scripture concerning "crystal" in the Old Testament, applies to the carnal mind, but in New Testament, "crystal" is applied to the mind of Christ Jesus.

Job 28:12, But where shall wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding?

13, Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living. (KJV)

Job 28:17, The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold. (KJV)

<LivingEM> The Hebrew were translated "gold," Strong's # 2091, means "to shimmer," or "something gold-colored (i.e. yellow)." The Hebrew word translated "fine gold," Strong's # 6337, means the real thing, "gold," "equal," Strong's # 6186, means "to put in order," and the Hebrew word translated "jewels," can be translated, "armor" or "weapon."

ALTERNATE TRANSLATION, Job 28:17, The false gold of the crystalline carnal mind, cannot be exchanged for [Christ Jesus], the true weapon and armor og gold that brings us into the correct moral order.

The Hebrew word translated "crystal" in Ezek. 1:22, is Strong's # 7140, and the Hebrew word translated "crystal" in Job 28:17, is Strong's # 2137. Strong's # 2137 appears only once in the Scripture. Strong's # 7140 appears eight times, but is translated "crystal," only once, in Ez. 1:22.

Strong's # 7140 is translated "frost by night" in Gen. 31:40. Jacob is speaking,

Gen. 31:40, Thus I was; in the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by night; and my sleep departed from mine eyes. (KJV)

Job 6:15, My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away;

16, Which are blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the snow is hid: (KJV)

ALTERNATE TRANSLATION, Job 6:16, The dark, colored ice covers over the snow, which signifies Elohim's sons.

Job 37:10, By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. (KJV)

<LivingEM> We have to translate this verse, because the King James translation uses the word "frost," in a positive context.

The Interlinear Text says, "is straightened in the water is the breadth frost is given by God the breath of."

Please note that the king James translators moved the Hebrew word translated "straightened," Strong's # 4164, from the beginning of the verse to the last word in the verse. "Straightened," an adjective which modifies the word "waters," can also be translated "to distress," or "anguish." The Hebrew word translated "breadth," Strong's # 7341, can also be translated "thick."

ALTERNATE TRANSLATION, Job 37:10: The waters that became thick ice are distressed by the breath of God.

This verse is saying that the waters of creation which were thickened by the earth and became clay, are distressed by the human spirit, the breath of the Mighty One in mortal man.

The word "distressed" or "anguished," is speaking about the tribulation which forces Satan into the bottomless pit. But it is only the purified human spirit which has been rejoined to Abel, the root of Adam, the Tree of Life (Christ Jesus in the New Testament), who has this power.

Job 38:29, Out of whose womb came the ice? And the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? (KJV)

<LivingEM> This is Jehovah showing Job how little he knows, saying "do you know which heaven the frost and the ice came out of? Dand d you know whether Jehovah or the Primordial Serpent's, womb brought it forth?

In other words, Jehovah is saying to Job, can you tell the difference between what I am responsible for, and what Satan does?

Most people in the world, and in the Church, cannot answer this question correctly. They believe God is responsible for the evil in the world. But the truth is, that despite the world's hatred of the Lord, Jesus, He is saving us from this evil age which came into existence when Adam, our original ancestor, failed to overcome the witchcraft of his own evil side.

So we see that the Scripture speaks about two crystals: The dark, solid, crystal of the carnal mind, and the purified, clear crystal of the renewed mind which is in Christ Jesus.

Rev 21:11, Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal (KJV)

<LivingEM> The Greek word translated "clear as crystal," Strong's # 2929, is derived from the Greek word "kruos," which is translated "ice." But we see in Rev. 21:11, that when the light and glory of God shine through the crystalline carnal mind, it is no longer black, dark, or solid.

Revelation 22: 1, And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. (KJV)

<LivingEM> There is a Greek word, Strong's # 2986, which means "clear" in this verse, which can also be translated "radiant," "magnificent," "shining," "brilliant," "TRANSPARENT," "splendid." So we see that the dark, solid, crystalline carnal mind, is become the bright, transparent crystalline Mind of Christ.

The mind, whether the carnal mind or the Christ mind, is a crystalline framework which is designed to express the shining, or the rays, or the spirit, that passes through it. But the dirt of Leviathan's male, spiritual sexual organ clogs up the openings in the lattice of the carnal mind, bows righteous Abel over and prevents him from shining into the heart center, and Satan becomes the false light that shines upon that mortal man.

This is the definition of a black hole. Our human spirit must be purified, brethren, so that the light of God can shine into the black hole of our carnal mind, and liberate us from the false light of this age.

Is 9:2, The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. (KJV)

Matt 4:16, The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. (KJV)

Acts 22:6, And it came to pass, that, as I made my journey, and was come nigh unto Damascus about noon, suddenly there shone from heaven a great light round about me.

7, And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? (KJV)

<LivingEM> The Greek word translated "there are shown round about," means "to flash all-around," or "to envelop in light." This Greek word lines up with the Hebrew word, Strong's # 965, translated "a flash of lightning" in Ezek.1:14, where it describes the glorified man.

Brethren, the glorified Jesus Christ is the flashing light that rose within Paul.

The Greek word translated "I fell," which also means "to alight," or "to fall down," is the same Greek word which appears in Rev. 9:1, "....and the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star FALL FROM heaven onto the earth."

Paul did not fall to the ground. The Lord Jesus Christ descended into Paul, the personality, and "fell upon" or "attacked" the fiery serpent, the spiritual ground that Abel is under -- and Abel, the root of the Tree of Life in Paul, heard Jesus' voice.

Jn. 5:25, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. (KJV)

Brethren, an angel entering into a man to speak with him is a common the concept in the Old Testament. This is why Paul says,

1 Cor. 11:10, For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. (KJV)

<LivingEM> Don't prophesy unless Christ Jesus, the spiritual head who chases Leviathan's evil angels when they try to speak through you, is covering the fiery serpent, your spiritual virginity.

The men who were with Paul perceived that he was having a spiritual experience, but they did not hear the voice that spoke from within Paul. Does anyone know why the other men did not hear Jesus' voice? Do you think Jesus respects persons, and fell upon Paul alone?

Whether the Spirit of God falls to bless, or to bring judgment, He "flashes about" or "shines over" everyone in the broad area that emanates from His point of contact with the earth, and touches the life of everyone who "hears" Him.

Paul, by his own admission, kept the Law zealously, and probably had a relationship with the Spirit of Elijah. Every Jew in those days did not have a relationship with the Spirit of Elijah, just as, today, every Christian does not have a relationship with the Holy Spirit. Paul was utterly devoted to God in the only way he knew how, and Jesus' glorified Spirit fell upon him, and spoke to him. There must be something within us that recognizes the Spirit of God when He falls.

I believe, and I must believe, that many devout worshipers of the Lord Jesus Christ will have the same experience in the very near future.

Acts 22:10, 12-13, And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things which are appointed for thee to do. (KJV)

Verse 12, And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good report of all the Jews which dwelt there, up

13, Came unto me, and stood, and said unto me, Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him. (KJV)

<LivingEM> I have to switch to Acts 9 to make my point.

Acts 9:18, And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized. (KJV)

<LivingEM> Please note that after Paul's outstanding spiritual experience with the glorified Jesus Christ, Leviathan's scales fell off of the eyes of his understanding, he received spiritual sight in Christ Jesus, and arose, that is, ascended -- into his heart center, where he was baptized.

Which baptism do you think Paul received? Anyone?

<JSNGSNG> Resurrected Adam

<DANIEL42> Baptism of the Holy Spirit?

<LAMB> Baptism into the body of Christ. Mind of Christ.

<Myprecous1> Fire

<LivingEM> LAMB is closest. Myprecous1 is also close. Paul was baptized into Christ Jesus, which baptism imparted the mind of Christ to him, and prepared him for the baptism with fire which follows immediately thereafter.

Acts 9:19, And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus. (KJV)

<LivingEM> And after that, we are told in Verse 19, Paul received meat and was strengthened. What do you think Paul was given to eat? Anyone?

<LAMB> Doctrine of Christ.

<Myprecous1> Doctrine of Christ

<Overcomer> Doctrine of Christ

<LivingEM> Yes, the Doctrine of Christ. Verse 19 goes on to say that Saul spent "certain days," with the disciples which were at Damascus. We do not to know how long Saul studied the Doctrine of Christ, but we do know that Paul's intense knowledge of the letter of the Word, prepared him for this experience. So we see that Saul received the Doctrine of Christ, was spiritually strengthened by it, and went forth to preach that Christ is the Son of God in the synagogues.

Early in the meeting, I began to talk about the Word of Christ Jesus "oozing" through the lattice of my carnal mind, into my conscious mind.

OOZE

ooze (¡z) verb

oozed, oozing, oozes verb, intransitive

1.To flow or leak out slowly, as through small openings.

4.To exude moisture.(1)

<LivingEM> The definition of "lattice" from a physics perspective, that I gave you earlier, is "a regular, periodic configuration of points, particles, or objects throughout an area or space, especially the arrangement of ions or molecules in a crystalline solid."

So we see that an expression that I have been using for years, "the correct moral order," is actually speaking about the arrangement of the atoms and molecules which form our mind. I have also spoken a great deal about how spiritual speech marks, or engraves, our earthen personality with the nature that we express. But the understanding that the Lord has brought forth today, that "the correct moral order" has to do with the arrangement of the atoms and molecules of the mind, is the closest that we have come to relating the spiritual principle of "the correct moral order" to our physical world.

We know that mind is spirit, and that the brain is merely the physical organ through which the mind expresses itself. We also know that mind is a wave, not a single particle, but an energy stream that flows through every aspect of our being.

The term "the correct moral order" has always meant, until now, the submission of the personality to Christ Jesus, who is in submission to the glorified Jesus Christ, but I see now that the spiritual principle of "correct moral order" means much more than that. The relationship between the spiritual atoms and molecules of our etheric body determine our nature, in the same way that our physical genes and chromosomes program the way we look.

The fiery serpent's energy stream moves in a spiral pattern, so we can say that the arrangement of the spiritual ions and molecules of our etheric body, move in a spiralline pattern in every man born of a woman. So we see that crystal does not always have plane surfaces.

CRYSTAL

crystal (krîs´tel) noun

1.a. A homogenous solid formed by a repeating, three-dimensional pattern of atoms, ions, or molecules and having fixed distances between constituent parts. b. The unit cell of such a pattern.

2.A mineral, especially a transparent form of quartz, having a crystalline structure, OFTEN [but not always] characterized by external planar faces.

[Middle English cristal, from Old French, from Latin crystallum, from Greek krustallos.](1)

<LivingEM> Apparently, the repeating pattern of the atoms of the carnal mind are spiralline, and it is this spiralline pattern which must be straightened.

Matt. 7:13, Enter ye in at the STRAIT GATE: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: (KJV)

<LivingEM> The strait gate is the timeline of Christ Jesus.

Lk 3:5, Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; (KJV)

<LivingEM> The valley is the fiery serpent, our spiritual womb, or our spiritual virginity, or our spiritual sexual organ. Does anyone know who, or what, will fill out spiritual sexual organ?

<Overcomer> Mind Christ Jesus,

<LivingEM> Christ Jesus, our husband, the spiritual phallus of the glorified Jesus Christ, shall fill and satisfy the fiery serpent, our spiritual virginity.

"And every mountain and hill shall be brought low." Does anyone know what the mountains and hills are?

<LAMB> The lower and higher energy centers

<Overcomer> Higher energy centers

<LivingEM> Yes. The sixth energy center, the place between the eyebrows (Deut. 6:8), is the mountain, and of the fifth energy center in the neck, is the hill. The fiery serpent who is ascended into those high places without her husband, Christ Jesus, will be cast down to the root energy center, where she becomes a spiritual virgin again.

"And the crooked shall be made straight." The Greek word translated "crooked" can also be translated "winding." We now know that it is the "crooked," or "winding," spiralline energy pattern of our etheric atoms and molecules, which is being straightened.

Does anybody remember what is rough that will be made smooth? This goes back to our study in Jacob and Esau. The word "rough" indicates the goat. Every man born a woman is the offspring of humanity's Old Man, the she-goat, called Astarte in the Old Testament, and the Devil in the New Testament. The word "hairy" usually signifies the energy of the creation which is presently possessed by Satan and Leviathan, but it can also signify the resurrected Adam, Elohim's spiritual man.

2 Kings 1:8, And they answered him, He was an hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins. And he said, It is Elijah the Tishbite. (KJV)

<LivingEM> Esau was born with the inheritance of the earth, the spiritual energy that the Primordial Serpent stole from Adam, and Jacob had the righteous seed, but lacked spiritual power.

Matt 3:3, For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. (KJV)

<LivingEM> The Greek word translated "paths," Strong's # 5147, means "a worn way." That is, "in a rut." The fiery serpent's spiralline pattern has formed worn pathways in the earth of our personalities, and we cannot get out of the rut even though we hear the Word preached, and understand it. Change just seems to take for ever.

Luke 13:13, And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. (KJV)

<LivingEM> Verse 13 is talking about the woman in verse 11 who had a spirit of infirmity for 18 years, was bowed together, and couldn't lift herself up.

Maybe she was physically bowed over, and maybe she was not, but I have no doubt that the etheric atoms of this woman's mind were in a spiralline pattern, and that Jesus straightened them into the linear energy pattern which reflects Jehovah's nature. Neither would it surprise me to find out that this account is a parable, and that "the woman" who was bowed over represents all of Judah at that time, and the Church and all of humanity, today.

Acts 9:10-11, And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord.

11, And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, (KJV)

<LivingEM> I always thought that "Straight" was a strange name for a street, and now we know that this Scripture is talking about a spiritual street.

Is 51:23, But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over. (KJV)

<LivingEM> The Hebrew word translated "that we may go over," Strong's # 5674, can also be translated "to pass through."

ALTERNATE TRANSLATION, Is 51:23: But I will put you into the hand of them that afflict you; which have said to you, [let the fiery serpent], the spiritual] ground of your [etheric] body, ascend into the circular timeline (bow down),(3) so that we may pass through [the resurrected Adam, the wall who protects you] and your personality (soul) [which did not resist], became a street to them, and they passed through [Adam, and Cain killed Abel, and buried him under the ground again].

Acts 9:11, And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, (KJV)

<LivingEM> The Lord instructed Ananias to enter into Saul's mind .... and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus, for, behold, HE PRAYETH.

<LivingEM> The Lord was saying to Ananais, ascend in my timeline, which is identified by a straight, forward flowing stream of spiritual atoms, and make contact with Saul, who is also ascended in my timeline, through prayer.

Acts 9:12, And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight. (KJV)

ALTERNATE TRANSLATION, Acts 9:12: Enter into my timeline, which is identified by a repeating, linear pattern of spiritual atoms, and make contact with Saul's mind, and communicate with him, and tell him that you are the one who will lay hands on him to restore his spiritual sight; and your spiritual communication will appear to him as a vision.

<LivingEM> And indeed, the vision that Saul saw came from Christ Jesus, the God in the midst of Ananais.

Heb 12:13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. (KJV)

<LivingEM> The feet signify the carnal mind.

ALTERNATE TRANSLATION, Heb. 12:13: Let the pattern of the spiritual atoms of your carnal mind be changed to the linear [straight] pattern of the mind of Christ, so that the mind which is turned away from God should be healed.

<LivingEM> So we see that the mind of Christ, which is identified by a repeating, linear pattern of spiritual atoms, is within the carnal mind, which is identified by a repeating, spiralline pattern of spiritual atoms, and that when Leviathan, the spiritual mud, is washed out of the openings in the pattern, the Mind of Christ, which moves in a straight line (Ez. 1:9), will pass through the openings of the carnal mind.(4)

Dan. 11:10, But his sons shall be stirred up, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces: AND ONE SHALL CERTAINLY COME, AND OVERFLOW, AND PASS THROUGH: then shall he return, and be stirred up, even to his fortress. (KJV)

Christ Jesus, who exists in the mental plane, converses with us through spiritual ideas, as expressed through the Doctrine of Christ. Christ Jesus does not communicate with us through our emotions. The more interested we are in the Doctrine of Christ, the more His thoughts pierce through into our consciousness, and the more we hear His voice.

Christ pierces through the carnal mind and oozes into our consciousness simultaneously. At first you think that His thoughts are your own thoughts, but they are not. I used to believe that I was different because I talked to myself, until the Lord told me that He was communicating with me through my own thoughts, and that I had been speaking to Him, not myself, all along. He also told me that sometimes His responses to my questions are delayed because He speaks to me from behind the lattice of my carnal mind.

Dan. 10:13, But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia. (KJV)

<LivingEM> The Prince of Persia is Satan, the Prince of this world (Jn. 12:31,14:30; Jn.16:11), the God of the carnal mind, and Michael is appearing to us today as the Spirit of Christ. There is a warfare between the Spirit of Christ and Satan every time Christ Jesus tries to communicate with us, but we defeat Satan, even in our mortality, as the Spirit of Christ oozes into our conscious mind more and more frequently. Eventually, the carnal mind, the spiritual wall that surrounds and restrains Christ, will fall down.

Josh 6:20, So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city. (KJV)

<LivingEM> ....and every man went up into the "straight" city, that is, the spiritual city characterized by a pattern of spiritual molecules arranged in straight lines, the city of our God, Christ Jesus.

2 Peter 3:10, But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. (KJV)

<LivingEM> The Scripture says that the Lord comes as a thief because He oozes into our consciousness slowly and imperceptibly. The fiery serpent and Leviathan, the spiritual elements that are melting, must separate for the fiery serpent to fall down into the root energy center where she becomes a spiritual virgin again. The fervent heat which separates the two is the Lake of Fire, which is Christ Jesus, and the "works" that burn up is the labor of this world. The mortal man who truly "experiences," Christ Jesus, enters into His "straight" spiritual timeline, where there is no labor.

Rev 16:15, Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. (KJV)

<LivingEM> Blessed is the man who recognizes the thoughts of Christ Jesus in his own mind, which holy thoughts will cover his shameful, spiritually female, carnal mind. The one who takes off his garment, the one who prefers his carnal mind, the one who is not listening for the thoughts of Christ Jesus within himself, or from others, will live out of his shameful carnal mind, and continue to be naked. It is a shame to live out of the carnal mind when Christ Jesus is within us.

<LivingEM> I hear a song in my mind, Hallelujah, "the Lord reigneth" .... I see a vision of what looks like our congregation -- everyone in this meeting, and others -- dancing and singing and swinging tambourines. There is great joy in the Spirit. A great celebration is at hand for the Lord doth reign. He is higher than any, and every, problem that we might have.

When I was a young disciple, I used to hear my pastor say things like what I am about to say from the pulpit, but I had not yet experienced the Lord's indescribably, merciful deliverance. Now I say these words with understanding:

He in higher than cancer;

He is higher than heart attack,

He is higher than poverty,

He is higher than emotional problems and mental illness.

There is none higher than our God

Our God reigns over all.

He who cannot be defeated, shall defeat our strong enemy,

And we shall live out of His mind (sight) (Hos. 6:2).

Remember, you are all a part of what the Lord did today, and is doing here. It is not me alone. If you are called to these meetings, your presence here is very important. The mind of Christ in each of us has ascended, and formed a great glory cloud which touches all areas of our life, our neighborhood, the people next to us, our neighbors, friends, and business associates. We are not the only ones who have been taught here today. What was done in the Spirit, has affected the whole world.

God bless you all.

Good night.
