For the Bond-servants of God
Then behold, the word of YHWH came to him, saying, “This man will not be your heir; but one who shall come forth from your own loins, he shall be your heir.” And He took him outside and said, “Now look toward the heavens, and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” And He said to him “So shall your seed be.” Then he believed in YHWH; and He reckoned it to him as Righteousness. (Gen. 15:4-6, emphasis added)
Therefore, be sure that it is those who are of faith who are sons of Abraham. And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by Faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “All nations shall be blessed in you.” . . . Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as to many, but to one, “And to your seed,” that is, Christ.” Gal. 3:7-8, 16-17, emphasis added)
And YHWH Elohim said to the serpent:
“Because you have done this,
Cursed are you more than all cattle,
and more than every beast of the field.
On your belly you shall go,
And dust you shall eat
All the days of your life;
And I will put enmity between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her seed;
He shall bruise you on the head,
And you shall bruise him on the heel.”
(Gen. 3:14-15, emphasis added)

One fundamental thrust of this paper rests upon a type of contrast which helps to establish the spiritual domain in which we are dealing, a point that tends to get lost in the very determined speculative dialogues that center around the external identity and nature of Christ, the Beast, anti-Christs, Nephilim, et al. How fitting then that the lynchpin of the argument to retain the spiritual nature of the seed rests upon passages that clearly and unequivocally refer to Christ Jesus Himself. Additionally, consider the following:
“Behold, days are coming,” declares YHWH, “when I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and the seed of beast.” (Jeremiah 31:27, emphasis added)
Whatever does that mean? Is the Lord referring to sowing the seed of Nephilim, or reptilian DNA into the human genome, and into the house of His people? Does everything have to break down to some physical literal interpretation or is that just the only thing which the fleshly mind can comprehend?
The answer is unequivocal in the aftermath of the amazing scriptural exegesis which Paul accomplishes by the Holy Spirit. As the end-time Israel is a spiritual House, circumcised of heart, so is the spiritual seed which composes her. This reduces the provocative issue magnified by the distracting multi-million dollar industry which sells books propagating the myth of a physical demon seed, or reptilian races.
These are myths which Paul warns about in his epistles (2 Tim. 4:4). Our attention needs be focused on the spiritual realities, the things above.
If then, you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. (Col. 3:1-2)
From a variety of vantage points a seeking disciple is able to see that the reality of the new life in Christ, “the new man,” arises from a spiritual birth within of a spiritual seed of Christ.
In like manner, the one who loves truth will understand the serpent’s seed to be a spiritual seed, much in the manner in which Jesus told the parable of the wheat and the tares. Seeds are sown in the field, one producing a harvest of good grain, and the other a crop of tares or darnels for the fire. But as the world, or kosmos, is the field (Matt. 13:37-38) and the seed are sons of the kingdom and sons of the evil one, the implication is clear that this portrays a spiritual planting. But we will return to this question toward the end of this writing, because it lies at the heart of the image of the beast in Revelation.
First, though we might look at the best analogue for image-making that we can find for the Father’s and Christ’s creation of Man in their image: the image-making process of DNA, the molecular structure that codes for protein construction in the making of all biological substance.
Largely unknown in the world of genetics and genomics and proteomics and all of the other –omics which are sweeping the world of molecular biology, the overwhelming volume of information pertaining to biological growth lies in the wave form and not in the hard wired molecular structure. Biophotons construct holographic images which in turn provide the iconographic basis for the generation of cellular material that in turn comprises tissues and organs which work together as a holon of the human body.
In a profound way, image construction is at the heart of genetics, functioning much more in the wave form than in the molecular form. Dr. Peter Gariaev of Moscow named this Linguistic Wave Genetics (LWG) and has pioneered advanced healing work and tissue and organ reconstruction using a sophisticated laser system which regenerated damaged biological material using the proper genetic wave information. He and his team have already demonstrated the ability to restore function to paraplegics and to re-engineer liver and pancreas function via tissue regeneration. Dr. Gariaev has theorized that about 98% of all the DNA information is stored in the wave genome, destroying the childish myth of junk DNA, and exalting the science of genetics to new levels.
What could this have to do with the image and likeness of God? Everything. By the created things of this cosmos, we are able to understand the power and majesty and creativity of God and Christ in their unique ontological stature as “Creators,” often called Elohim.
The upshot for those born of Spirit, for whom the seed of Christ has fallen on good soil, and is not choked out by the worries or preoccupations of this world, and not carried away by demonic influences serving like birds of prey, this means that with proper food the image of Christ will grow into the full stature of a man, even Christ. (Eph. 4:13-16)
What then is proper food and how does this image grow, in a way similar to how a child grows into a man or woman?
Building upon the analogy we must look to the words of Christ in order to lay out the proper regimen of healthy growth:
But Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matt. 4:4)
If the seed is spiritual and the image is spiritual, then the food and growth must be spiritual. The image of God can only grow from the growth God gives (1 Cor. 3:7). This makes it of paramount importance to closely guard what one takes in as food, both in terms of spiritual teaching from scripture, as well as in attending to all of the material pertaining to things of the earth – once again, keeping our minds stayed on the things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of the Father, will mean that in Spirit where we have been raised up, we will grow to a stature that matches “the spirits of righteous men made perfect” (Heb. 12:22-24).
The result is seen in 1 Cor. 4 in terms of “the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”
For, we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face [image] of Christ. But we have this treasure in clay vessels, that the surpassing power may be of God and not from ourselves. (1 Cor. 4:-7)
Thus, if that image is implanted us by the word of Christ, the seed, which is watered by the Spirit and nourished by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God, what time do we have to waste with studying the words of men? How can the traditions of men help us when the words of the Father are life? Why should we search man’s knowledge base when we hear the words of Peter echoing in our mind: “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”
So, yes, concerning the Word of Life (1John1:1), it is the spiritual seed implanted to grow into a son of God, whether male of female on the outside, it is irrelevant; and whether Jew or Greek on the outside, it is of no consequence.
Herein is the Mystery of God revealed which Paul disclosed in hushed tones to the Galatians: My children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you (Gal. 4:19). It is a spiritual formation of the divine image which must be formed in the spirit of man.
And just as it is the proper words within the language of DNA, namely the triplet codons which code for the correct protein synthesis to form the required organs and tissues for the body to grow into the physical image of man, so also:
It is the words of eternal life which Christ has (John 6:68), within Himself as the Living Word of God, which once within the spirit of Man can code for the divine image of Christ to be formed as the new man we are within.
No longer can we dwell on the flesh and judge by the flesh, and interpret scripture on the basis of the fleshly mind. Why search the scriptures for eternal life, when these bear witness to Him? (cf. John 5:39) The image of God is clearly revealed in the image of Christ, who stands in 180 degree contrast with the image of the fallen ones whose corruption leads to death. It is another spirit that gives rise to another image.
There is a spiritual war going on here in the abyss, and it is a battle for the seed of God, His sons, but not according to the myths of the yarn-spinning booksellers. The image is a spiritual one, and according to the nature of the image which presents itself, either it will be rewarded with life that He can also impart to our mortal bodies (Romans 8:11), or the image will fade in the fires of destruction, like the chaff from the harvest, or the tares that are not suitable for food, but must burn.
So it is that the prophetic word of Genesis 3 cited at the heading returns to our consciousness to critically examine just how the dynamic struggle within Man and also within the heavens and the earth as it plays out in the vistas of John’s Revelation is a battle between the two seeds, a struggle between the image of Life and the image of Death – or in other words: the image of the Christ vs. the image of the Beast.
We have reached a monumental point in this very brief reflection on the war of sons of Light against the sons of darkness, because a very great deception that has swept Christendom just may be lurking here. I pose it as a question.
What if the image of the Beast into which the false prophet breathes life, is not a statue, or any external object of veneration, but is an inner spiritual reality that may creep up on a soul unawares? In other words, what if the image is compounded by receiving image construction instructions from the Prince of the Air, building error upon error upon error, until there is not an image of God, but of the Adversary? It is in the wave, the spirit, the breath, the air, which comes into the soul and offers words which may sound good, but lead to Death.
We have a perfect prophetic example in the words of the Serpent to Eve in Eden: “You surely shall not die. For, God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Gen. 3:4-5) Isn’t this the very substance of many alternative gospels we hear today? Life must come from Christ Jesus not from knowledge of good and evil. He is the Tree of Life, and in Him are all the treasures of knowledge and wisdom (Col. 2:3).
Yes, indeed, for Christendom has too easily received another Jesus, another spirit, another gospel (2 Cor. 11:4). Today’s Jesus, even in the Vatican script, is not the sine qua non for salvation. Mother Teresa said it, and Pope Francis has said it. There are many paths to God.
Well that might be, but if it is true, each of those paths must lead through Jesus Christ, for no man may come to the Father but by Him (John 14:6), He is the Way, and the truth and the Life. As the Word of Life, in what way can Life be conceived apart from Him? Indeed, apart from Him not one thing has come to be.
Christendom has breathed the breath of the false prophet, has taken in the spirit which promises life, but gives another gospel and another spirit. It is a spirit that promises life but gives death – just as the Serpent gave in Eden. The understanding of “being born of Spirit” has truly dissipated, along with the true knowledge that we are to believe God and Christ, and that Sin is Unbelief.
It is uncertain whether the greater Christian community even considers the first published message of Christ Jesus (Matt. 4), “Repent, the Kingdom of God is at hand.” Repent? Huh? I’m forgiven. But repentance is really a turning of our mind from the things of the flesh, the minding of which means death, to the minding of things of the Spirit, which means Life. There is no knowledge of the things above where Christ is.
And this brings us round full circle to examining just what food will bring about the desired growth?
The science of Cymatics, birthed by Hans Jenny and Ernst Chladni, deals with the effect of waves upon physical reality, namely how different acoustical patterns actually generate different geometries, i.e. changes in structural organization. This principle is an analogue of spiritual harmonics. What we think, and believe, or do not believe, has very real consequences and in terms of our image it breaks down to the simple principle that our inner image can be affected by what we take in. Of course, nearly everyone is now familiar with the beautiful and also ugly crystals which Dr. Emoto generated using words and musical sounds.
If we spend our time contemplating the works of the adversary it cannot come to any good. There is no precedent for it in scripture – quite the contrary, we are told in James to flee from the Devil and draw near to God.
How can we spend our time studying the Nephilim, the Illuminati, ETs, the NWO, including gazing at images of demons, grays, and hideous renditions of the fallen angels? Can anyone be so foolish as to suppose there will be no effect from all of that exposure?
Would any sensible human walk unprotected into a quarantined ward full of patients suffering from Ebola? No one with any common sense would do that. Exposure to harmful creatures and frequencies is bound to take its toll.
Beyond any damage from exposure to the negative, there is no reclamation of lost time in this universe, and all the time getting to know the adversary should be spent getting to know God, because that will mean eternal life. Why would anyone be so hypnotized by the dark side as to spend all of life researching, talking about, and writing about those elements of creation that are gone awry? There is nothing in God’s Word that gives any license to do this, and there is a great deal that directs people away from spending their lives in this manner.
Proverbs 9:10-11 says
The fear of YHWH is the beginning of wisdom,
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
For by Me your days will be multiplied,
And years of life will be added to you.
God tells us directly that getting to know Him means life, even a lengthening of our days, something which no man can do for Himself.
We are first and foremost told to come unto Him, all we who are weary and heavy-laden, and then to put on His yoke which is easy, to follow Him so we may find the narrow gate which few find.
How can anyone find the gate to Life, which few find, if one is looking at the gates of darkness? This is without question part of the great deception by the deceiver who deceives the whole world (Rev. 12). Listen to the words of Revelation:
And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life. And there was given to him to give breath [spirit] to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast might even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. (Rev. 13:14-15, emphasis added)
Leaving aside the usual externalized interpretations of this text, let us view it in terms of image construction which takes place within, in the field, in the consciousness of a person, whether for good or ill. If this beast coming up out of the earth, the false prophet with two horns like a lamb, but who speaks like a dragon, is not an individual man, but rather is a collective reality whose image is seen in a leadership who direct the Temple of God, viz. the end-time house of Israel, to enthrone an alternative Christ within, then this Beast will give spirit to make this image seem to promise life, when it actually brings death to the believer. And does this not simply open up the understanding of Jeremiah 31:27 cited above in terms of the image of Man and the image of beasts planted in the end-time house of Israel and of Judah?
This is a sober reminder of the consequences of failing to grasp God’s penchant for casting spiritual realities into poetic language, particularly His wondrous use of metonyms such as ‘beast.’ Even ‘seed’ has a metonymic stature because we are talking about something which is only approximated by the nature of physical seeds with which we are familiar. The idea of a spiritual seed is beyond the reach of a fleshly mind, and even more so with what will make it grow into its full expression.
We can be certain of some things, and they include the realization that as sure as bad company will corrupt good character in Paul’s words (1 Cor. 15:33), so will bad spiritual food spoil good seed. We already know this through the amazingly demonic work of Monsanto. Their bad genetic material corrupts good seed. Likewise, too much time with the negative, and consumption of bible teachings that really offer subtle variations of the anti-Christ gospel, simply leads to the formation of a counterfeit image of Christ which, once it marks a person, leads to a second death – spiritual death.
Can we put it any simpler than that? Choose this day, life or death. The seed of Christ with the true gospel of the true Lord, who is the way, the truth, and the life is the beautiful and desirable choice. The other path, the other seed, the other way, leads to Death. And this is the picture of the contrasting images which are seen as sown in the pages of Revelation. If you would become like the stars (Daniel 12) and receive the blessings of Abraham (Gen. 15), then you must receive the Word of Life – and Believe!
