OFFERINGS

         CHAPTER 72                     LINK TO OTHER PAGES

      ATONEMENT.

  1. It is said that on the day of Atonement two goats were brought before the High Priest. One was to be a scapegoat and cast aside, the other was killed and sacrificed upon the altar with some of its blood brought within the  innermost room of the Most Holy.

  2. Have then the Levites of Israel completed their allotted task upon the earth?  Aside of the Bull (Yeshua) for a sin offering, which was killed on app., the year 33 AD, there was on a second day a goat to be offered for sin as well.  

  3. For again elsewhere it is written: "And you shall offer one male goat for a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old as a sacrifice of peace offerings."

  4. Am I now alone to know the truth - to understand the Scriptures? No matter how well I look, and search for a voice of knowledge and wisdom to be heard, - I am appalled.  It does not appear for any person to have knowledge, and least of all the theologians and preachers.  For that of which I am speaking is clearly written.

  5. There are those calling themselves, "Torah observant Jews," but I have yet to hear a word of the Torah from them.  Then there are all these many Jews priding themselves to go by the statutes of Moses, but I have yet to hear how these are abiding by any one of these statutes. While for the Gentiles - these are ignorant as well.

  6. Where therefore might that record be, the one of the goat O Israel, when was he killed?  When at any time did your Levites complete their allotted tasks? Or, is that yet to be done?  Should you not therefore O Israel look a bit closer into that Torah to bring its statutes to a fulfilling?

  7. Your forefathers took care of the Bull in the Covenant - after which you were driven out from the land of your heritage.  But now that the Lord has brought you back to the land of your fathers, and your Levites are again at the task, don't you think it is time to bring the offerings as commanded to their fullness?

  8. The angel speaking to Daniel said:  "And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off, but not for himself."  The time factor then of which the angel was speaking was in a period when you O Israel would be back within your land of Israel, which as we know came to pass in the twentieth century while the Messiah was already offered within the first century.

  9. That particular anointed one therefore cannot be the Christ Himself to die for a second time, but rather in utilizing common sense, it would have to be that goat - as in a second day after the Christ.  For is it not obvious to you that a goat is much smaller than a bull, a different animal altogether?  You therefore O Israel are yet to complete upon the Torah.

  10. As then it reads further by Daniel: "And He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week."  That wording may entail that it will be of the Lord to reconfirm His covenant seeing - His goat to a redemption in the congregation was to be offered.

  11. Then in speaking of the translations: Here in this translation, - the "He" is capitalized, its reference as such being to God, or the Messiah in calling many persons unto Him again, confirming His covenant with them. This is so since He brought forth an anointed one among them to reconfirm the covenant. 

  12. Whereas in looking at the second version (another translation of the Bible) - the "he" to make a strong covenant could very well be a wicked ruler making a covenant for the destruction that he has in mind.

  13. And yes the latter wording seem more appropriate since these words follow where it states:  "And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war; desolations are decreed."  After which comes: "And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week."

  14. As then for common sense the "he" here does not seem to have its reference to God or His Messiah, we are still able to dispel the truth from the various versions no matter how the scribes may corrupt the words as written, for where again in the one version it continues: "In the "midst" of the week etc." The other has it as: "And for "half" a week, etc."  Which one of these then shall be correct?

  15. It really does not matter; does it, since it can be either or both.  And for a more accurate definition this will become too lengthy to go into so many other parts of the Scriptures.  

  16. But whether written or not written, or meant or not meant, I wish you my beloved to understand how indeed the Lord will confirm His covenant with you, and how indeed the wicked will make their own covenant contrary to the Lord to make for a devastation of your offerings.

  17. And yet again on the other hand, the Satan is self defeating how even though the angel said; for sacrifices and offerings to cease, these will also be amplified most gloriously in the giving of themselves of all that keep their faith in the Messiah, to offer even themselves as so many did before them in times past.

  18. This therefore I say unto you O my beloved Israel, - complete the offerings which you were commanded. (Lev: 9:15,  15:15-16)

    OFFERINGS

  1. Somewhere I promised to speak of offerings to clarify what is written in that respect, and, which to this day has yet to come to its completion.  But I am hesitant to speak of it, for it is not in the milk of understanding, and it no doubt will be mis-understood by most. Still for the few that are wise in some manner I will continue.

  2.  It is written; "You shall bring the bull before the tent of meeting. Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands upon the head of the bull, and you shall kill the bull before the Lord, at the door of the tent of meeting."

  3. This took place just as it was foreshadowed. Yeshua was condemned in Jerusalem by the sons of Aaron, with the Levites, who for their condemnation bear the greater guilt, as compared to the Gentiles that placed Him upon the wood of the tree.  

  4. As then His blood was to be written with the finger on the horns of the altar, the remainder was poured out at the base of the earth, the altar meaning the earth.

  5. And like it is written;  "But the flesh of the bull, and its skin, and its dung, you shall burn with fire outside the camp; it is a sin offering."  This was the Lord outside of the city on the cross.  

  6. And it is written: "The priest shall burn them on the altar as an offering by fire to the Lord; it is a guilt offering.  Every male among the priests may eat of it; it shall be eaten in a holy place; it is most holy.   The guilt offering is like the sin offering, there is one law for them."

  7. To eat of an offering that is most holy, is like where the Lord said, how when He died upon the cross all men that have life died with Him.  All these many partook of His suffering, and of His death, that these likewise might rise with Him to life. These many died with Him because the Lord rested on the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

  8. Yes my beloved - I know that the wisdom of my speech will at times appear as a riddle, but I cannot begin to explain everything that is portrayed in the offerings and that for two reasons, first to keep secret what is to be held secret, and secondly - the wisdom of it being much greater than my vessel is able to bear.

  9. It is said that; "Annually, on the day of atonement, the sin offering was made for the whole nation, consisting of a Bull and a male Goat.   And how their blood served for atonement being brought into the Holy of Holies. As therefore that specifies two separate and different offerings I must again curtail my speech.

  10. The two men that were crucified along with Yeshua were like guilt offerings, they were receiving their punishment. While then for the one who acknowledged his guilt it can be reckoned as a guilt offering, the other was merely put to death.  

  11. If a man killed a man - the law called for him to be killed, it did not call for an offering, here thus we must consider the term 'offering.'   And to use an example for burnt offering, we could recall Ignatius how he was burned at the stake. 

  12. He was not upon that stake for any guilt in him, but for his faith in Yeshua, and his determination to righteousness, and he freely gave himself. And so there were many guilt and burnt offerings.

  13. As then it clearly reads;  "Then he presented the people's offering, and took the goat of the sin offering which was for the people, and killed it, and offered it for sin, like the first sin offering."  Conclusively, two male offerings were to be made, for thus the Lord has spoken, and thus it will be done.

   EZEKIEL 43: 22

  1. "And on the second day you shall offer a he-goat without blemish for a sin offering; and the altar shall be cleansed, as it was cleansed with the bull."

  2. A marvelous statement is it not? Christ Jesus who gave Himself for our sins, the one single offering for the sins of all the world, and yet God speaks of a second offering, that two were to be offered for sins. The first a Bull, as the greater one with a male goat as the smaller or lesser one.

  3. But how curious, for when one has washed himself, and he is fully clean, he is not going to wash himself again for a second time, seeing how he was already clean from the first cleansing.  And yet so the Lord said; "And the altar shall be cleansed as it was cleansed with the Bull."  - As in making a twice cleansing of the same altar.

  4. I now know perfectly well why that is to be so, and its how, the full nomenclature of it, but that wisdom and revelation is not for the ears of those that are born in the earth.  What is from heaven is but for those of heaven, and what is from the earth is but for those of the earth.  

  5. Yet I mean to impart wisdom to such as it may be granted, and to confuse the mind of the unworthy who in their worldly education presume to know things so well.  

  6. There is much spoken of two Messiahs, a son of David and a son of Joseph, and while Israel holds it as if this son of Joseph as a Messiah will be a leader or savior of the ten tribes to unite to Judah, all these are as yet wet behind the ears. Nor am I going to wipe these waters from them.

  7. How proud the sons of men are claiming Christ Jesus all in Himself the single offering for all the world, while additionally the Lord required a second offering for sins by which the altar might be cleansed.  This additional offering must surely be for confusion to them, even though there is no error in their first assumption.

  8. A mystery is it not, a great mystery, wherefore also at times I said of myself; "I am a mystery, and a mystery I will remain for all but the sons of God."

  9. Man prides himself on the Scriptures, and confirms to himself this truth that Christ Jesus in His single person died for all, and yet who is to deny these Scriptures when it calls for a second offering for sin?  

  10. Then again it is written - how there is no man that is without sin, no man other than Christ alone who was without blemish, and yet God speaks of another man in terms of him being without blemish.  

  11. You indeed heard correctly, as in without blemish -- so that he might suffice for a sin offering.  And what man is there who is without blemish?

  12. How curious that for all these many years, centuries on end - with the Scriptures so clear and open to them, what man has spoken of it?  Who from among all the sons of man has taken himself upon all that is written and prophesied?

  13. How is all this to be reckoned, and understood?  It is for the wise, and them only, because I said;  - that I was a mystery, and that I would remain so.  Nonetheless, I will continue in more of God's revelation as wisdom to the wise and confusion to the unwise.

   A TWOFOLD STRIKING

  1. From the Torah, when God commanded Moses to strike the rock, he struck it twice, and the water flowed abundantly, for the Lord had said;  "So you shall bring water out of the rock for them; (and) so you shall give drink to the congregation and their cattle."   

  2. What then was it that Moses prefigured?  Why did Moses strike that rock twice?  What is the significance of it? 

  3. The Rock then signifies the Redeemer, with the water as the life flowing from Him, which was not only to bring life to the congregation, but like as it reads - to the cattle as well, meaning, life for Jew and Gentile, and/or, meaning, for the one and the other.  

  4. And to strike it twice, is to signify the Redeemer in two persons.  For again as confirmation thereto, not only was a Bull to be offered for sin, but a male goat as well.   

  5. And again for wisdom - the Rock is one, and One only, while the striking upon one and the same rock - was twice, has this meaning, that the second is of the One, or of the First.   (A mystery indeed, for so I have spoken.)

  6. Then again for more wisdom, he who struck the Rock himself was not to enter into the promised land, signifies, - the striker, or strikers, those who killed the Redeemers, the Jews and Gentiles that placed Him upon the cross.

  7. And where Moses said:  "Hear now, you rebels; shall we bring forth water for you out of this rock?" This also prefigures the wicked teachers, like for example Calvin and his institutes, how by his lies and imagination he is bringing forth the salvation by Christ Jesus.

  8. And that was so in His one person as well as in his twofold person.   Not one person to be killed twice, but two persons were to be struck.  And now for great wisdom I pronounce saying:  Yet those two persons are again as One, for the Rock is One but the striking twice.

  9. Then as in bringing water from the rock Moses as such did not give glory to the Lord, which came about on purpose as a sign of what was to be.   How the preachers of that water, those of men that always glorify themselves, were not to enter into the promised land. Murderers and unbelievers are never to enter into heaven, into that new world to come.

  10. And where I said that; "Moses did not give glory to the Lord," signifies how the strikers, the killers of the Messiah's, would not be any kind of people to give glory to the Lord.  So much so is in a word.

  11. Then again, note how the Lord said; "You" shall bring forth the water, and "you" shall give drink." The emphasis here on the word "you" which was Moses, in allegory to the prophets and the sons of the Lord, that He would send into the harvest to teach them, to lavish that water upon them by which they might live.  

  12. (As I am doing this very day - bringing forth life giving water from the Rock, from the Messiah.  But is it me?)

  13. Then for yet more understanding of that single sentence, note how it reads; "So" - you shall give drink," placing the emphasis on the word "so."  The meaning of which is - that by teaching the people, by preaching, and by furnishing the word of the Lord to the people "So" they will have the water, - that is -- God's word for sustenance.

  14. You see how much is in a word, and how well the Lord prefigured all that was to come, and in what way? And so the Torah is full of wisdom and understanding, like for example when the people of Israel were about to stone Moses for bringing them out of Egypt, since they were ungrateful and thirsty.

  15. And Moses cried to the Lord and the Lord said to him; "Pass on before the people taking the elders of the people with you. And take the rod with which you struck the Nile and go. For behold I will stand before you there on the Rock at Horeb, and you shall strike the Rock, and water shall come out of it that the people may drink."

  16. This was to foreshadow how Christ Jesus - as the Rock - would be struck, and that by His death the life saving water, as salvation would come by it, for the people to drink of.   Yet now I complain how few of these people since did factually drink of that water, to accept that testimony of Him, that is, was, and still is for the life of them.

  17. And more so, note how God said, that "He" as in Himself would stand upon the rock, which for the meaning of it I leave to the wise, the very wise.

  18. Then there is that rod with which Moses struck the Nile river, The rod of God, symbolic as it is by which he chastises those that are His, even for the blood to flow from them.  

  19. For so the river became blood, as indeed all the rivers since turned for the blood in them -  likewise as a demise to the wicked.  Our blood shed for His name sake, the wicked procuring it upon us.

  20. And yes there is much more to that rod, for by the same the Lord divided the waters from the waters, like as He did once before already when He formed the earth, and the heavens thereof.  And while in one it is for the one going upwards, with the other flowing downwards, these also stood one facing the other while the people of the Lord went through the midst of them.

  21. And again where the Lord said; "I will stand before you on the Rock."  Is like a promise that He would bring forth the Redeemer, and that it will of of Him, and even in Him, since He said; "I will stand." And then again there are the words: "To take the elders of the people with him, when he struck the Rock."

  22. And where it is written: "And the people murmured against Moses saying; "What shall we drink?"  And Moses cried to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree, and he threw it in the water, and the water became sweet."  The law now is as water but written on stone, while for it to become sweet, a tree had to be thrown in it.

  23. This is like when the people ask;  "How shall we be saved?" The Lord in answer thereto showed them the cross, the tree upon which all the bitter was made sweet.   And yes this is very much so, and unwavering, for so thereafter it reads: "There the Lord made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there He proved them."

  24. Shall then this be the statute to merely make a pond sweet by placing a piece of wood in it?   No, but rather like that tree cast in the water for it to become sweet - that is My statute, and My covenant with you O Israel.  

  25. That very tree and what took place by it, that is My ordinance for you O Israel.  And with Him it is, with My Son upon the cross I will test you.

  26. The Lord therefore spoke to all of Israel of Christ His Son, and how by Him they would have their life saving water, their souls to salvation.  But since they were a stubborn people and wise in themselves, always complaining about everything, the Lord placed it as in a cloud to be found only by them that earnestly looked for it.

  27. And so even in the least obvious places God's promise is shown.  Like where it reads; "The Rock."  The Lord said to Moses; "You cannot see My face; for man shall not see Me and live. But behold, there is a place by Me where you shall stand upon the Rock, and while My glory passes by I will put you in a cleft of the Rock."

  28. The Rock signifies Christ Jesus, how by Him we have a place by God.  And elsewhere;  "Ascribe greatness to our God! The Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice."  

  29. For you my beloved it should be like this:  I once said that it is not the salvation of my soul that concerns me as much as that I love truth and justice above all. That for the cause of righteousness my life and my being are of no concern.  

  30. As then for the sons of man all things are first and foremost for and towards himself, ranking himself as number one, this is not so with the sons of God, and certainly not with me.  The foremost thing of man is his greed, while for us it is generosity, with the Lord and His word being number one.

  31. These things then, and many more, my beloved are deep mysteries to which the Lord granted me understanding, yet not such as I in this day and age I can expound upon in still more detail here in these pages before the eyes of all the people. Let this therefore be sufficient.

  32. I now have spoken more than I should have spoken, yet all such as I have spoken is clearly written and revealed in the Scriptures. May it be for wisdom to all such as are wise in the knowledge of God, our Glory and our very Being.

  COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM

  1. What is in a word?    Abraham wished to know "HOW" he would come to inherit what the Lord had promised him.  In other words he desired to know the nomenclature of God's promise to him, to know who would be these people as the stars of heaven, and how would these be delivered, to come unto him?

  2. Instead of saying; "Covenant with Abraham, we could thus say; "Nomenclature of the covenant."  And to reveal the same to Abraham, the Lord showed it to him by way of an offering, to wit: "Bring Me a heifer, a she goat, and a ram, three years of age, and a Turtledove and a Pigeon."   

  3. The three four footed animals then were cut and slaughtered, while from the birds their bones were not broken, nor were they cut in halves. (It being spoken of the Lord that His bones were not broken)

  4. With this sacrifice the Lord is thus foreshadowing to Abraham what will be and how it will be; even as He said: "In it I will place the ages."   

  5. Who then is able to define this if not in wisdom, in the wisdom of God unto man, for no man has understood this, except such as to whom the Lord thought to reveal the same.  

  6. And when I was yet young He revealed the same unto me, but it was not until I was older when its implication came to bear heavily upon me into a much greater realization of it.

  7. I came to say in myself; "This is astonishing, and inconceivable, that a mere son of man may be granted such an honor to be for a remission of his fellow man along with the Son of God.  For the Son of God was Himself God along with His Father, and from ever, while this son of man is no more than a creature, a Spirit having gone forth of the Father.

  8. If then there is a quest here, you that are indeed wise, consider well what I said, and how I said it, to have a clear view of the birds.  How inconceivably compassioned and marvelous therefore the works of the Lord are. Therefore also speaking in wisdom, I concluded that; to be granted a Sabbath is most marvelous. (Indeed a word in wisdom.)

  9. But I must define what that offering was.  In naming the three four footed animals the Lord pointed to Abraham that people would come unto him from the whole world, as the Lord had said; "You will be father of many nations."  The ram then being the male of them, signifies Israel, while the two females designates the nations of Gentiles.  All these would come into his inheritance.

  10. Then comes the "how so" in the two doves, the Turtledove, as the one greater and more honorable, with a lesser one as the Pigeon. 

  11. I now know very well "WHY' there were to be two to deliver these many nations, but not all of that wisdom is suited for the ears of men.  Yet since it is obvious that a second deliverer is to be made known, and to be offered I shall continue to show that aspect of it.

  12. The Torah is not the only record left by Moses, as in fact the Torah in many parts is a condensed version of what was revealed to Moses all of which was shown to him by the Angel of God's presence. 

  13. And when Abraham in his dream - was going with God's angel to mount Horeb for the sacrifice, he at one point said to the angel: "But I have no sacrifice with me, nor do I know a place on the mountain, how thus will I make it?"

  14. The Angel then answered: "Look behind you." And as Abraham looked all the sacrifices were following them.  The meaning of which is, Abraham was first, and all these people of the nations were yet to be born, wherefore all these had to come after him, as in following him inclusive the two doves, the Redeemers of these many persons.

  15. Moses then in the Torah  (Genesis 15: 8-10) does not go into all these details, and shows it not as in a dream, for Abraham did in fact take up and slaughter these animals, and kept the evil birds from it, he then dreamed afterwards. Nor therefore is the wisdom of the Torah for the sons of men, but in such fashion as these may be capable to understand the same.

  16. As then the Angel said to him: "You will give the Turtledove and the Pigeon, for I will ascend on the wings of the birds to show you what is in the heavens, and on earth, and in the sea, the abyss, the lower depths, and the garden of Eden, its rivers and more."   

  17. The meaning of where it states; "You will give," is that these deliverers were to come of him, or out of him, since Christ Jesus also was a son of Abraham, in the lineage of David. And the male goat a son of Abraham as well.

  18. And where it states; "For I will ascend on the wings of the birds to show what is," has this meaning. That by the teachings of these two persons, namely of Christ Jesus the Turtledove, and of the Lion as the pigeon, man would come to know all that he needs to know for his salvation, and much more to be known in wisdom. 

  19. Note then again how the Angel said that "He" would show all these things, (the emphasis on the word "He") which holds in that all such knowledge would come of God to be taught to man by the angels of His presence, by His Holy Spirit. And did not the Lord say: "They shall all be taught of God."

  20. And now that I have said this much, it is also written the Lord speaking; "I will accept no bull, nor he-goat from your folds."  How thus this is interwoven with the previous is but for the very wise, and folly to the unwise.

  21.  Then also Enoch in his revelations pronounced that there would be seven great teachers in the earth, teachers greater than all man's teachers, and that the seventh thereof would emerge from the western part of the world, whose teachings would be directed to all the race of men, even as Enoch himself was.

  22. And, note how the Lord said; "As I hear from above so I speak,"  I likewise have said; "As I hear from above so I speak." All Scripture thus having come by the inspiration of the Spirit of God. 

  23. And consider what all the angel said that would be revealed, not only that which is in heaven but also from on earth, and under the earth, and even the foundations of the earth were to be revealed.

  24. Then in reading further it states: "And the angel took me with his right hand and set me on the right wing of the pigeon, and he himself sat on the left of the turtledove, neither of which were slaughtered or divided, and He carried me up to the edge of the fiery flames."   

  25. Consider clearly then that it does not state; "That he rose on the wings of the doves," but specifically specifies who was where.  Abraham, which conveys man, was upon the right of the lesser one, upon the wing of the pigeon, while the angel which conveys God's Holy Spirit, and all that was taught of Him, was with the Turtledove, the greater of the two birds, or redeemers, and this holds much more in.

  26. If then we recall the dream which was given to Joseph, how there would be born a Lamb from a virgin, at whose left - in the very ending of the sixth day - there would a Lion, the Lamb would be holding a Lion by the right hand.

  27. The Lion thus is the Pigeon, while our Lord Christ Jesus as a Lamb is the Turtledove, and it was by these two, joining right to left, or left to right, that both Abraham and the Angel ascended.  And why might it be that it is not only Abraham who so ascended, as also in being delivered, to rise into heaven?

  28. It my beloved reveals the how in our salvation, for the angel is as the Spirit of God, by whom deliverance is made possible and executed, and by Him upon the wings of the two doves Abraham, as also we - ascended, as in were delivered.  

  29. Note therefore again who was where.  Abraham was on the wing of the Lion, while the Angel was on the wing of Christ Jesus. Christ Jesus was with His left hand holding the right hand of the Lion.

  30. For with Christ Jesus, the Turtledove, is the Spirit of God, while with man it was upon the wing of the Pigeon, all of which has its own and its further meaning I cannot go into.  

  31. I now am in favor to say that the Lion, or Pigeon serves as the prototype of all that are saved in the Messiah, all of His sons dieing with Him upon the cross, as in all of them serving for atonement. And yet it also has to be so in a single person.

  32. For so again for you that are wise, Enoch said; "And there I saw the One who is from before time, His head was white as wool, and with Him was another whose face was like that of a human person, his countenance was full of grace, as one of the holy angels."

  33. As then the angel said that to Enoch was shown the Prototype,  the one of "before time," is our Lord the Messiah. And with Him, there was a human person as a prototype, it is -- just as Caleb was with Joshua, or the Lion with the Lamb. Enoch therefore showed the two Redeemers long before Abraham was born.

  34. How much folly now the children of men will make of this having to digest that a second deliverer was required, that there is more to Christ the Messiah than what they have been taught, and how will these take themselves upon that Messiah of the Messiah.  

  35. The fact that it is clearly written, a Bull and a Goat, a Turtledove and a Pigeon, a Lamb and a Lion, as well as the fact that Daniel records his offering, and calls him a prince of the very covenant of God, is but for the wise and the humble to serve as sustenance. 

  36. The priests and the theologians most certainly will not accept it - since there is no wisdom with them. 

  37. A covenant then, is like a promise, like unto a contract, and what it singularly contains is that by an offering the Lord God would reconcile man unto Himself. That offering then in its single being is given us of God in a twofold manner.

  38. And yet there are a total of three princes contained within that covenant, each of them a prince of the highest grade.  As then our Lord is "THE" prince of that covenant, with Him are two others by whom and unto whom the soul of man may be made joyful.

THINKING OUT LOUD  

  1. What folly now of men to reprove me, how in so many things I repeat myself, how often I take upon the same subject in different words, and at different places.  

  2. Am I so different from those many others by whom the Scriptures came to be written, how in them also the same words are repeated? 

  3. As now these are spoken by inspiration, even so have I spoken. My dear friend Enoch, the seventh from Adam spoke to me saying; "Reveal it to them in your wisdom." And yes so I have done, but consider from where that wisdom has come, and whom therefore He might be that is speaking.

  4. How dearly man thinks of himself to be doing all that he does as were it in -his- power to perform things.  But I am not in league with the sons of man, of myself I am nothing.  If it were not for His constant care I could not eat a morsel of bread, nor take a first breath, or even lift my hand or take a step. 

  5. If it were not for His immeasurable grace I could not have a first thought, let alone the multitude that pass upon me.  If it were not for His loving care how would I have any emotions, or the compassion that I requested of Him.  

  6. Even the desire within me for my mate is of His hand, and the passion to adore that beautiful creation of His hand, so marvelous and so desirable, all of which are of His hand in the wisdom that is of Him.

  7. If the Lord had made all of us at once, as indeed He did, but He brought them forth one at the time in the womb of one another.  If not so it would have been very wrong, for then there would be no fathers and mothers or brothers and sisters, whole families to enjoy and love one another.

  8. It is a most marvelous thing that the Lord has done to create man with his woman, and to grant them children, to instill knowledge within them so as to love and adore one another, to have them in His own image. The Lord indeed made everything to perfection, and even that sentence is far more reaching than I can express into words.

  9. Why should such lowly creatures as we are - have the privilege of entering into the rest of the Lord the Creator of all, to rest within His presence and to serve for sanctification? Are not the angels much greater and more honorable than those minute creatures of flesh and blood, made out of the dust of the earth?

  10. How will these mighty angels in their many forms so much loftier than us feel when the likes of man that is like unto the animals are to take in their places and have authority over them?  

  11. Or how and why is it in the first place - that there is a salvation for mankind, and that the Almighty Creator has adorned some of mankind to rest within His presence, and not so many other creatures more loftier than them?

  12. It is a mystery, and yet it is not a mystery, but to whom shall understanding be given? There are the hunters and the hunted, and why is that so?  It is for good reason, but I am not one to reveal what is to be kept holy.  Renewal is a part of creation, in the un-estimable wisdom of Him that created all.

  13. The more knowledge increases within me so does the pain, for I am not able to comprehend the Lord, nor His majesty, my heart is at awe for His greatness, how immeasurable grandiose and Majestic He is, and yet I call Him Father because He made me, every inch of me, and granted me to know Him.

  14. My mind is often occupied on all that is to be done in the world to come, meditating on all the aspects of society in the how thereof. And why should my mind be so occupied when I know that the west receives all its setting from the Sun?  Yet I contemplate and map out whole scenario’s.   

  15. For O how my heart is that of a Lion, of a king, of a monarch whose word is law.  Only it is not my word, seeing all that I am - I am His.  So many thoughts are on my mind, contemplating what few men even realize to think upon.   For any answer there must first be the question, if then the question is not furnished - how shall the answer be?

  16. The world will think to be rid of me, to have shut my mouth forever, but they should have considered the Lord, the Almighty Son of God, how when He died, He lived, and by living He came to be for a judgment upon all that are unwise and unbelieving.  

  17. Even so am I, for though I die yet shall I live, and these many will weep bitterly for having put their hand to me, or even to have their thoughts against me.  For again in the day of judgment I also will be there for a testimony against them.

  18. I have not come into this world but for the salvation thereof, for the good of all man.  Whosoever therefore will hear me will be free of me.  And while my speech are like riddles to the sons of men, they are for wisdom to the wise.

  19. Even though I replied unto the Lord saying:  "I refuse to be a prince of this people, these are not fit to be ruled, nor that their shadow should grace the earth."  I cannot emancipate myself from them.

  20.  I am rooted in a majestic mountain with fertile ground all around me to bear branches in which all the birds of heaven will take their nesting.

  21. And so at times I cry with Augur saying:  "Surely I am too stupid to be a man. I have not the understanding of a man.  I have not learned wisdom, nor have I the knowledge of the Holy One."
