In a previous thread, I asked you if you would bow to Christ in humility. I pointed out how Satan refused to bow to Adam, thereby being cast to Earth for a trial and judgment. Earth is a place for custody until the trial. Unlike our jails, God's jail is a place of refinement until the trial. If we have turned form the crime, we are free, but only with an advocate. Our advocate is Christ, the one refining us while in custody. Each of us are asked this simple question: Will we bow to Adam? Now, I can show you why you should bow. If you get it, you will gladly bow and see the point of this process. Here is the previous thread: Will you bow?

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.

It's really a pretty simple concept. God is ONE Spirit. From this Spirit (Consciousness / I AM), he made us unique so we could also see that I AM. In other words, we can see the difference between others and our own self. This is illustrated by the loaf of bread made by the wheat (Fruit of the process). The bread bakes and is sliced. You are a slice. The Son of God (First Soul) is the heel on either end and the one that comprises the whole loaf. This is God's Spirit in an image. The Good Shepherd is part of the whole and values the entire loaf as ONE. We, on the other hand, mostly only see ourselves as separate.

Go back and read the verse above. The idol in question is the self apart from the whole. By bowing to Christ, we acknowledge the value of the whole first. Satan refused to bow in pride. The point of the material world is the involution of the soul into matter so that it can evolve back to unity with the whole where it starts. Baptism is our immersion (Involution) into the river of life. Evolution is the thing gained by the experience of evolution back to unity with God. We choose this or stay divided from the loaf.

This is why you should bow: The Shepherd pulls the wool over your eyes. He then sheers your sin away by trials in the wilderness. The wool is washed white as snow and then given back to you at the end as a new robe. You are the one that creates the new robe by choices. Bowing to God improves those choices by sacrificing the beast on the altar. That process can either be done with fire or water. Water puts out fire. Baptism is the water that is used to repent. You are literally born for this purpose from the waters of the womb. Union with the whole allows you to avoid the fire that will burn the beast.

The world wants you to unleash the beast on others. Why should you bow instead? Do others matter or does only your slice matter?

The Son of God is the first Slice (Adam) and the last (New Adam).

1 Corinthians 15

If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”[f]; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual.

If you allow God the opportunity, the heel can crush the head of Satan within you and replace it with the Head of God (Holy Spirit).

Genesis 3

14 So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,

“Cursed are you above all livestock
and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
15 And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring[a] and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.”

The heel was bruised for your iniquity and can heal you by crushing Satan's dominion over your life. All you need to do is allow the heel to crush the head of the opposer in your life. Love others. God is one of the others.

With the proper keys in mind, can you now read this verse accurately?

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. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

The life is in the blood. The new DNA of Adam will be the thing that makes the new robe you will wear. It will have a holy Spirit that will not sin. The Word will be imprinted into this new frame.

Repentance is turning from self and walking with God. When we do, we have repented and can begin to bear new wheat for the next fruit to drop from the tree of life. The fruit is what is produced for the new seed. This is the process you produce, while God does the rest. Give to others instead of worshiping your own slice of the bread.

What quality of robe (New body) do you wish to have later? Why is your current robe the way it is?

Matthew 18

18 “Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be[e] bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be[f] loosed in heaven.

19 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

Entanglement provides the mechanism for this to work between here and Heaven.

Seeing God face to face requires you to look beyond this image you are in. The image in a reflection is not the thing casting it. God is casting the image and when you know who you are (Image of God), you see him face to face and know him as he knows you.

1 Corinthians 13

11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Can you see what I am showing you?

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.

If you have read this carefully, take a look at my avatar and realize that you are being carried by the one you bow to. It's all of us.

Luke 15:10

"In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."

Where are you if you are a child of God? Are you the image or the thing casting it?

Matthew 18

10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. [11] [a]

12 “What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? 13 And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. 14 In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish.

I think I'll bow. It's either that, or beat my head against a brick wall, and anyway, I love my savior and kinsman, Jesus.

Amen. When we reduce the root symbolism to the original story, we see that the crucifiction of Christ is actually much older than the first century. He was literally sacrificed at the birth of Adam so that we could share in the new Adam with our own DNA kinsman. This is beyond what a friend does for his friends. It's something we must all value when seen clearly for what it is.

John 15:13

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

We choose love from faith in Christ or we choose to remain in the law.

Galatians 3

23 Before the coming of this faith,[j] we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed. 24 So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. 25 Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian.

26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

The process to reveal this to us is beyond brilliant.
