I have studied the bible, especially eschatology, from my earliest memories.
You know that is the first time I have ever seen a prophetic message veiled within the account of Jesus entering the temple!
I'm very intrigued, yet also very Berean, so I'm going to look all that up and study it for myself.
Thanks for that Enoch!
When Jesus says, "I and the Father are One," what did he mean? I think I have come across the answer to this. The implications to this are
profound. Read it yourself.
25 Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name testify about me, 26 but you do not believe because
you are not my sheep. 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no
one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30
I and the Father are one.”
What Fathers do we have in the Bible? Abraham is the Father of Israel, the light to the nations. Adam is the Father of mankind. There is the Most
High. The Elohim are plural in Genesis 1 where we see the image being created. In Genesis 2, we see the creation of the material world from the
images (2nd Creation). Adam is the Father of mankind.
1 Colossians 1:
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all
things, and in him all things hold together.
This may take you a minute to figure out, but once you start to see it, the answer appears as plain as it can be. What did it mean in the Bible that
Christ was the last Adam? Can this be connected to, "you must be born again" in any way? Baptism is the immersion of a soul into the material
world. Reduce symbols to the root.
We have known for a long time the the Lord in Genesis is Christ throughout the Bible. We know the Lord is always with us. He is the first image God
created. Jesus and the Father are one. Is this a garden variety sentence of sorts? Can it have more meaning if read differently?
I'm still working on this, but the implications match what Edgar Casey was saying. Casey said that Jesus was many of the figures in Biblical
history. He names them. I don't know what to make of it, but there seems to be something within this. It's a mystery. Casey is a hard one for
me. He had a gift of some sort and all gifts are from God. He seemed to be a man of honorable intellect. Typically, I try to dig deep into these
things and verify them from other sources. In this case, the Bible hints at something more than we currently realize. I can't say for sure, but it
is interesting to ponder.
Go to Genesis 6 and the divine beings that married the daughters of men. Can we make a connection to Jesus saying that some of the sheep are not of
His Father? WOW! I don't know what to make of it fully, but there is way more here than we have ever realized. The book of Enoch tells the story
of judgment for these beings in 70 generations. That's 6000 years from Adam. Our day and age. Enoch was around 950 after Adam. A generation is
the precision of the Earth 26000 divided by 360, which equals 72.222. Do the math and you get 5055.
Epistle of Barnabas 15:4
Give heed, children, what this meaneth; He ended in six days. He meaneth this, that in six thousand years the Lord shall bring all things to an end;
for the day with Him signifyeth a thousand years; and this He himself beareth me witness, saying; Behold, the day of the Lord shall be as a thousand
years. Therefore, children, in six days, that is in six thousand years, everything shall come to an end."
This one verse set from Barnabas is what drives me to think that we are at the end of the age.
-Adam to Abraham 2000 Years of Age 1 (FATHER)
-Abraham to Jesus 2000 Years of Age 2 (SON)
-Jesus to Today 2000 Years of Age 3 (HOLY SPIRIT)
-Day of Rest (Day of the Lord) 1000 years (SALVATION)
Think about it. Father Adam to Father Abraham. Son Issac to Son Jesus. What could be next on this horizon? A holy spirit gained by man from the
most important trial of all time. All of the Bible leading up to this one event. All 7 billion souls here to see it. If it is true that we are born
again, we are here to see this verse fulfilled. Paul says that the righteous and wicked would be raised (Acts 24).
7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of
him. Even so, Amen.
How can those who pierced Christ be here today? Acts 24 holds the key.
