awww... sorry y'all! I have had so much coming at me and have somewhat neglected this thread, as well as the board in general.
I am just going to offer it out to you! Take it for what it is worth.
The "Roll" being offered out by "Jesus" in the painting is one and the same with the Roll being offered to the son of man in Ezekiel. The Son of
man is the Word in the mouth of the flesh.... the Word = the Roll and Jesus is offering it to whomever would fulfill certain of tests... they would
understand the Roll/ the Word of the LORD.
The Word was not bound to Jesus and in fact, the Word was sold out for 30 pieces of silver (the silver represents the vessels of the house of the
LORD... aka actual children of G.d... house of Judah, lineage of David to be exact.. and can be found in Zechariah, which states that it was an
husbandman.. and Genesis shows the false translation that we have taken of Zechariah... Genesis 9 to be exact). The Word could only be made alive by
one who passed the tests as stated in the Tanakh.
1. The anointing... which Jesus quite clearly says is the tears of the truly broken hearted for mankind... from the vessel of a pure heart. It is
mentioned in the Tanakh over and over.. one place that comes to mind is Ezekiel 9... Ezekiel actually says much as to how this would play out.. Isaiah
is the most direct though. Daniel is very allegorical as with much of the Tanakh... and then quite a few other prophets were straight forward, but in
regards to the Day of the LORD.. which the prophesied has experienced... quantum physics has much to do with that Day... quite terrifying in fact..
but not the eternal hell that most understand it to be.
2. The test of Job... Satan (aka self) declaring before G.d that they have walked to and fro to find a man with an upright heart and having not found
them.. offered up "Job"... also... aka self. Job's test was not one of perfection...but rather one of an upright heart. To be shown that his heart
would not be against G.d despite having everything.. security of faith, materialism, etc. taken away (not a test for the faint of heart; quantum
physics.. matter vs anti matter.. security vs being exposed.. Truth vs. images).
3. A KNOWLEDGE of the thorny path that would be laid out should one accept it and a willing acceptance of it.
Thus, the fulfillment of Numbers 24: 17 "I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a
Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth."
This prophecy was not given by a "prophet" of G.d, but rather an astrologer who the LORD (the Word) used to declare what would happen... but He
would only reveal the true meaning of this prophecy (which was not astrological.. as we have been taught w/ the east star leading the wise man... that
was allegorical) to the Star.
The Star receiving the Golden Sceptre can be found in Esther. Funny, isn't it... how all of it was already declared and yet the stories we were given
were false and misleading. *shrugs*
The three angels (witnesses) that are often depicted in most of the paintings are none other than Noah, Job, Daniel... which is depicting someone with
flesh, tears, and understanding (awareness).. found in Ezekiel 14.
Now... go back through the Scriptures (the Tanakh.. aka Old (actually "Now") Testament) and look up the references in prophecies to see it is the
female that engages them... not so much the man. The male is the Word and the Female is the Spirit that activates the Word when the time was to come.
This is also spoken of in Genesis 8 when the Raven (the Word) is sent from the ark to never return (translated in Isaiah) and the Dove (which is
obviously allegorical considering it says "the sole of her foot"), the Spirit, looks for a willing vessel to accept the Word into herself.. thus,
Interesting analogy if nothing else, no?
The fall started with a woman and ends up with a woman.. who would have thunk?
