22 But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in
joyful assembly, 23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the
righteous made perfect, 24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.
Before we get started, my aim in this thread is not to create a positional good. I am simply showing you what is freely offered by grace and mercy.
I pray for my own soul daily. There is good reason for all of us to take this attitude.
Although there are many aspects to the Blood of Christ being shed FOR us, I believe this perspective I share here will help you see a larger context
to the significance of what you may be denying if you ignore God's Word and the gift that is given. It may be more down to Earth than you think.
The Word of God is not the Bible. Does that shock you to hear?
The true Word is the thing that casts the image that the Bible represents. The Bible is an image of the Word and DNA is the same. Blood is the DNA and
Word of the human seed. Is an acorn the enfolded oak tree or is the oak tree the enfolded information in the acorn? Yes. DNA is the enfolded word that
unfolds you. You are not you here in this image of particle and wave. You are the information that cast the image and blood is the water of life.
Look in a mirror. Which one is you. Look at yourself inside God's image here and ask the same question. Are you the one in the image?
Baptism is the soul's immersion into the water. We are here to repent.
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[a] it.
6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8
He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world
did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed
in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but
born of God.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of
grace and truth.
That WORD of God that encoded you; that was the seed of the Bible; that unfolds history and that ensures our hope for the future is the same Word that
is in your blood. The sacrifice of Christ is his involution into every human experience on this planet. That experience is then written in the Lamb's
book of life. The new blood that comes from Christ immersing Himself into us and the material world is the same word that then evolves to make us
Gospel of the Nazarenes (Lection 88)
12. For by involution and evolution shall the salvation of all the world be accomplished: by the Descent of Spirit into matter, and the Ascent of
matter into Spirit through the ages.
Involution is turning in on one's self (within). Compare this to Luke 17:
20 Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that
can be observed, 21 nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.”
What is Christ, the Son of God?
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.
Think of it another way:
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 are all cut from one loaf and will return as the Church that comprises the new body of Christ.
1 Corinthians 12
12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptized by[c] one
Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 Even so the body is not
made up of one part but of many.
15 Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body.
16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 17
If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But in fact
God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it
is, there are many parts, but one body.
Are you the seed that contained the enfolded human or are you the human that contains the enfolded information from the seed? Yes. You are the
information that makes both. It's in your blood.
Information can be saved.
