So many (ALL) hidden secrets to the universe are locked in the Bible. If we would just read and seek the understanding, we could thrive. Take this short chapter of the Bible as an example. The topic here is Technology from Knowledge.

1 Corinthians 8



Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that “We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love builds up. 2 Those who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to know. 3 But whoever loves God is known by God.


First, the topic is knowledge and the Bible always uses food as a metaphor for knowledge. An idol is a graven image that is produced from the fruit of knowledge. In Genesis 3, part of the punishment on mankind for 'taking' the fruit of knowledge was that we would toil for our food. Possessing knowledge puffs up pride, while love builds up. Why is this? This is because giving produces and taking causes debt. As a result of our own expression of fruit from knowledge (Technology), we are killing our own planet.



4 So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that “An idol is nothing at all in the world” and that “There is no God but one.” 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”), 6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.


A sacrifice is the surrendering of a possession. The passage is speaking of consuming the knowledge surrendered to the thing produced. In other words, it is speaking of what we take in as knowledge that is produced by the incorrect fruit. As well, we are also surrendering our planet to those who care little for mankind. Greed blinds.

In the first paragraph, it was noted that taking puffs up, but giving builds up. Love is the will to give and receive, but taking is the will of the thief. Taking causes debt, as seen by our national debt. Why do we have a national debt? We are consuming the wrong polarity of knowledge from the products we produce. These products are the graven images we make into our idols. We seek peace and safety from our consumer goods, all the while not realizing that God would provide all of our needs. Consider this verse:

Matthew 6:33

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.



7 But not everyone possesses this knowledge. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that when they eat sacrificial food they think of it as having been sacrificed to a god, and since their conscience is weak, it is defiled. 8 But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do.


What knowledge is he speaking of that many do not possess? You need to return to the last verse from the previous passage. It directly relates to this verse:

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.

And also this verse set:

John 1

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.

In Genesis, we are told that we are INSIDE and image and also THE image of God. An image is a representation only of something else. What is that something else? WORD! Go back to verse 4 of 1 Corinthians:

----We know that “An idol is nothing at all in the world” and that “There is no God but one.”

When you look in a mirror, you see an image of you. You know the image is not you. An acorn has the 75 foot oak tree enfolded into it. Is the oak tree the image that came from the Acorn or the WORD that made it come to be? As the verse states, nothing in this image is real. We are forming our technology from the image rather than seeing the image as the mechanism to lead us back to what is real. It is a knowledge that puffs up but lacks love. Love is the primary WORD we must learn. The knowledge of technology is simply an idol we produce that takes us away from the real goal of discovering God.

How does he conclude?

8 But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do.

Knowledge does not bring us close to God (Being a God). Seeking the knowledge of the fruit God created is not the point. It only puffs us up. Love is the point and love can only give. God would have given us the knowledge. As a matter of fact, we have never gained any knowledge that was not first given by God. No matter the course we took in the garden, God is the one giving what we gain. We toil for our food, just as Genesis states. We could have simply let God give it to us as a gift.



9 Be careful, however, that the exercise of your rights does not become a stumbling block to the weak. 10 For if someone with a weak conscience sees you, with all your knowledge, eating in an idol’s temple, won’t that person be emboldened to eat what is sacrificed to idols? 11 So this weak brother or sister, for whom Christ died, is destroyed by your knowledge. 12 When you sin against them in this way and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ. 13 Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother or sister to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause them to fall.


Of course, those who find love then produce good from their knowledge. We participate in the world freely, valuing what we have and how it is used. This freedom comes from finding the fulfillment of law. Law is for the thief. When we fulfill the law, there are no restrictions. This freedom contradicts those who have not yet found this freedom. The thieves will still suffer the law and the debt they create.

Compare to this verse:

Hebrews 5

11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. 12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.

What is the main point of all of this? What lesson do we gain from this as Children being raised in a garden? The entire Bible is centered around trying to teach us to use the fruit to give rather than take. As it turns out, we still make the same choice as we did in the garden. We surrender our knowledge to our idols and fail to preserve the garden in the process. We are fools. Meat is out of the question at this point because we have spent 6000 years sacrificing it to idols. We have nearly killed the Earth in the process.

Genesis 3

2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”

17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’

“Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat food from it
all the days of your life.
18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.
19 By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
and to dust you will return.”

Until we figure it out, the tree of Life is blocked by the Flaming Sword. We will continue to toil to rise, only to then fall again by our own arrogance.

Deny this Ignorance already.

Our sin is the Crown of Thorns we make Christ wear.

Is the fruit of knowledge related to this verse set:

Revelation 13

18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.[e-or of mankind] That number is 666.

Carbon has 6 protons, 6 electrons and 6 neutrons. It is the foundation for our technology and the mark of all life. The beast us all of us. The temple we surrender the beast to God from is our body. Fire burns the beast. Water cleanses the temple and puts out the fire. Water is baptism and our immersion into this world. We are here for one reason. TO REPENT! Of what? Our Pride against God.

Baptism is the wool over the sheep's eyes while it is sheered off. It is then washed white as snow in the water and returned as a new robe (Body) and crown (Mind). Look past the wool and see the point.

As you embrace ignorance, the world is burning, animals are dying, man is killing man over Carbon (6 protons, 6 neutrons and 6 electrons), Damascus is getting ready to be destroyed (Isaiah 19), the Petrol Dollar Mark is falling apart, Carbon Trading will replace your money with an ID Chip implanted, Obama Care will chip you by March 13th and all the other things in the Bible are coming true.

Deny this and you can stand on higher ground than I present in the thread. If not, you only stand against God and your own soul. Pride puffs up and Love builds up.

Lol. People are #ed, therefore the christan god is real. Lovely logic. People who believe in God let all this bull# happen and hold the belief that "It's all in Gods hands(and Satan that sneaky bugger)". Maybe you sit around letting evil men take power so you can get a rush when # gets tense and say "O LOOK ITS THE END OF TIMES THEREFORE MY CHRISTIAN GOD IS REAL".

Lol.

Rumi

For Soul there is other food besides this food of
sleeping and eating, but you have forgotten that
other food. Night and day you nourish only your
body. Now, this body is like a horse, and this
lower world is its stable. The food the horse eats
is not the food of the rider. You are the rider and
have your own sleeping and eating, your own
enjoyment. But since the animal has the upper
hand, you lag behind in the horse’s stable. You
cannot be found among the ranks of kings and
princes in the eternal world. Your heart is there,
but since your body has the upper hand, you are
subject to its rule and remain its prisoner.

I am simply showing you that there is food that feeds another aspect of your existence. This food fills completely and is never expelled from you after consumed.

RUMI

Likewise, gardens and rivers,
maids of Paradise and palaces, all types of food
and drink, robes of honor, fleet steeds, cities, castles and every kind of marvel—they know these
are not of this world. God shows and reveals
these secrets before their eyes. Thus they come to
know with certainty that fear of separation comes
from God, as do security, comfort and all spiritual displays.
Now this fear of separation does not resemble
the fears that most men and women know,
because it is a result of revelation and experience.
God clearly shows the saint that all things belong
to God. The philosophers may know this, but
they know it by intellectual proof, and proof is
not permanent. The pleasure that comes from
proof will not last. When the memory of the proof
passes, its warmth and thrill pass away as well.
Thus, we know by proof that this house had a
builder. We know by proof that this builder had
eyes and was not blind, had power and was not
powerless, was living and not dead, and existed
before the house was built. All these facts we
know, but we know them by proof. Such proof is
not permanent, and is soon forgotten. Lovers of
God, however, being absorbed in God, have come
to know the Builder and have seen with the eye of
knowingness. They have eaten bread and salt
together, and mingled the two. The Builder is
never absent from their heart and their gaze. Men
and women such as this pass away in God. With
them, sin is not sin, and crime is not crime, since
they are absorbed.

Consider what sets you free. Know the truth and the truth sets you free from the error. Food is the way to be nourished. Make sure you consume the correct nourishment for your soul. I can't tell you about something you need to experience for yourself. I can only show you it is available.

Making food and drink offerings has both a physical and spiritual implications. people still offer food and drink to false gods, many are even unaware they are doing it.

Take for example setting milk and cookies out for Santa Claus. Santa is actually a pagan deity who had a demon pal named Krampus who would beat bad children and stuff them in "Santa's" sack for a midnight snack. Krampus also had claws which is where the "Claus" in Santa Claus comes from. The Santa Claws.

And this illustrates religion accurately , create a god or a higher power who loves and/or reward you for good, and an evil demon/devil for all of the bad...

Revelations has been interpreted for a long time, they always change the meaning of the "symbols" to try to make it seem like it is "coming" true...
