I can only explain this from the standpoint of the best truth we possess as humans. In Matthew 3, John the Baptist told the "Experts" that manipulate
law what their fate would be. Any leader that manipulates law will be broken by that law. Their reward is what they take. The point is to repent
and start giving. This is true for all of us in life, but especially for those who have been entrusted with the leadership of this domain. Here is
what the Bible says will be the fate of a corrupt leader. The Pharisees and Saddusees are the metaphor in symbol. John the Baptist is the metaphor
for water, life, and immersion of the soul for one purpose (rising to new life). We rise or fall by choice.
7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them: “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to
flee from the coming wrath? 8 Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. 9 And do not think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our
father.’ I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. 10 The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree
that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.
11 “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will
baptize you with[c] the Holy Spirit and fire. 12 His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into
the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”
There are five baptisms mentioned in the Bible. Earth, Air, Water and Fire. Earth is the dust and clay that makes us. Air is the Word and Breath of
God. Water is the result of the experience in the wilderness (Earth) and the Word that is gained by the reflecting point of experience. Fire
represents trials and those trials will increase until destruction comes for all life. Water represents our baptism (immersion into the water of
reality) and water also represents the application of growth that causes us to rise to new life, just as a plant rises with proper sunlight and soil.
Water allows the process to occur. We are in a garden and we are planted for the harvest. Keep in mind what happens to weeds after the grain is
harvested. It is burned and gone. Water puts out fire.
The fifth baptism comes to those who are harvested as symbolized by good fruit. When grain is refined, it makes bread. Bread is the symbol for the
loaf we were all cut from, which is the Son of God. To return, water is the mechanism for repentance. Those who possess the Spirit now will stand firm
when the fire comes. Those who do not will be demolished by this Spirit from shame and guilt. They will mourn their loss as they witness the truth
emerge from faith to fact. Know the truth and the truth sets you free. Freedom brings love for others and God. Fruit is produced from repentance
(Turning from sin and standing for truth). It can only be one way or the other.
1 Corinthians 10
14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. 15 I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. 16 Is not the cup of thanksgiving
for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because
there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.
We can verify this by knowing that all things are created with Word (Information).
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were
made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the
darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
We now have enough information to see where the first loaf of bread comes from. We are all cut from one loaf and poured from one cup. The wave of
creation is the Word that is the wave of particle and wave duality. Consciousness is the primary mechanism that collapses the wave of collapsing wave
function in physics. Here is the wave.
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.
I say this to point out one very important concept: Not all of us are cut from this loaf by God's will. The bloodline that runs through all fallen
leaders is the error that will keep them from receiving baptism after the harvest comes. Fire is their lot in the future. They have their reward now
in this life. What they take is what they get. The rest of us have the choice to put the fire out with the water.
You must be born again can easily change to "no longer necessary" when death is swallowed up in victory. This victory will not come by strength or
might, but by Spirit.
The Earth is the rock that will be rolled away to reveal an empty tomb. That tomb will not hold Christ, but will be the final resting place in fire
for those who mock God. He extends cup of water to each of us freely. Grace is unmerited and none of us deserve what is offered. God can only give,
but he will only preserve those who willingly choose to fulfill the law with love. Love covers a multitude of sin and water puts out fire. Eternity
can be spent in the light or in darkness after the fire goes out.
We light the fire we burn by. Either that fire burns us or we use it to light the way on the path for others. It's a choice.
