The Principles of Creation
The Foundation of Spiritual Truth
“In the beginning God created heaven and earth.”
To create is to have the idea or concept of something.
Nothing has been made yet.
“And the earth was without form… “
To bring earth into existence would take two things; the two divine attributes of the Creator and Creation. Spirit and word; Energy and seed.
” And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters…” Genesis 1:2
“And God said… Genesis 1:3.
The Spirit of God is His Power, Might, Strength or Energy.
The WORD of God is the SEED of God (Luke 8:11)
Symbolized by the “two witnesses,” the “two olive trees” or “two olive branches.” Embodied in Moses and Aaron, Joshua and Caleb, Elijah and Elisha, John and Jesus.
” And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:” Genesis 1:26
We were literally made in the image of God when our father sowed his seed by his energy (male) into our mother (female), as God sowed His word by His Spirit (male) into mother earth (female). We are likewise spiritually made after this likeness when the holy spirit sows the word of truth into that spiritual earth called the heart.
We see the image of God in the Patriarchs. Abraham the Father, Isaac the Son, and Jacob the Holy Spirit. The Hebrew name for God is ELOHIM, in which we also see the image of God: EL= God the Father. OH = the Son. IM = Holy Spirit. The I AM.
Some say there are three in the Godhead. Others say one, proclaiming Jesus is God.
The truth is, the three are of one. God used His Spirit to speak His word. Man uses his energy to sow his seed. The three are of one.
“ In the beginning was the word, and the word was with the God, and a god was the word.” John 1:1 (Original Version)
“ In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1 (King James Version)
A god was the word has been changed to the Word was God, an error in translation that has Christians calling Jesus God, through which they are unwittingly denying the Son, rejecting the word by omitting the spiritual works of the Son, through which a new spiritual creation is formed in us. Jesus, the word, finished his works, as the word of God finished the works of a physical creation. We have been given instructions for finishing our own creation, becoming gods; becoming sons of God.
“ Is it not written in your law, I said, ye are gods. If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came… [why] say ye of him [Jesus] Thou blasphemest because I said, I am the Son of God.? If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not… thou you believe not me, believe the works…” John 10:34-38
The word of God is the seed of God, not God. Having the word of God makes one a god, not God. If the seed or word of God is conceived in the heart through works, one becomes a god, not God. In likeness, if man’s seed is conceived in the womb of a woman, that seed will bring forth a son or daughter, not the father that sowed it. Blasphemy is to make oneself equal with God, or God’s power, which Jesus never did. Jesus never said he was God. There are 220 verses referring to Jesus as the son of God or son of man. There are 2 verses used to claim that Jesus is God. One is a mistranslation of John 1:1. The other is John 10:30: “ I and my Father are one.”
Jesus never said he was God. The religious people of his day accused him of saying it. The religious people of today don’t accuse Jesus of saying it, they believe Jesus is God. Based on a mistranslation, and a misunderstanding. Jesus was saying he and His Father were one with respect to the works of creation, as God’s physical creation is a pattern or figure of the spiritual creation that comes from doing the spiritual works that Jesus spoke of and illustrated for us while he was on this earth.
“ No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.” John 1:18.
Jesus was seen, the seed or word of God made flesh.
“ … all things were made by him…” John 1:1,3
All things are made by a seed. Jesus, the seed of God, said he proceeded and came from God… “neither came I of myself, but he sent me” John 8:42. The seed proceeded from the the Father, sown into the womb of Mary. Jesus did not come of himself. The seed does not sow itself. That will require the other divine attribute of God the Father, which is His Spirit. Energy is needed to sown the seed, whether it be into the earth, or into the heart.
There are two fathers, two seeds, and two energies, and therefore two creations. Seed that has been sown through a holy spirit is attributed to christ. Seed that has been sown through an unholy spirit is attributed to antichrist.
“ Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ: He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.” 1 John 2:22
If you say Jesus is God you are making them one, denying the Father and the Son. One denies the Son, rejecting the word by omitting the spiritual works of the Son. The christ is the spiritual power through which one completes the spiritual works. If you are rejecting the works because you have been taught that Jesus finished them for you, you are antichrist; against the power (spirit and word; energy and seed) that results in your new spiritual creation; against the anointing through which your new heaven and earth comes into being.
“ Ye are of your father the devil… When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” John 8:44
Each of us acts as a spiritual father, having spiritual seed, which is sown through spiritual energy, into a spiritual mother. Having eaten of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil we have sown good and evil seed in that spiritual womb called the heart. Through the process of time, the evil seed in us choked out the good seed (Cain and Abel). The creation formed in us is “the first heaven and earth” which passes away upon the creation of “a new heaven and earth” (Revelation 21:1) through six (metaphorical) days of (spiritual) works.
“ And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and earth were passed away…” Revelation 21:1
These are the basic principles of creation, the foundation upon which all spiritual truth is built.
