We need to start by understanding what the son symbolizes. What is the spiritual meaning of the son? To understand the spiritual meaning of the son we need to look at how a son is made. A father, sows his seed, by his energy (father, son, holy spirit). The son symbolizes the seed. “Now the parable is this: the seed is the word of God. Luke 8:11. Parables (symbolism) provide us with important spiritual truth.
“In the beginning God created heaven and earth.” Genesis 1:1. To create is to think in the mind; to visualize something. Nothing has been made yet, the earth was without form as we see in the next verse. That will require God’s seed. It was through God’s word (seed) that everything was made.
“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. “ John 1:3. All things were made by Jesus. Not by the man. But by what the man symbolizes; by what inhabited the flesh of the man, which was the spiritual seed or word of God, which was formed in the womb of Mary- “and the word was made flesh, and dwelt among us… full of grace and truth.”
The Holy Bible begins with the creation of a physical heaven and earth and ends with the creation of a spiritual heaven and earth. The physical creation came into existence when God sowed His seed in mother earth through His spoken word (the sowing of God’s seed). “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with the God…” John 1:1. The spiritual creation comes into existence (within us) when God’s spiritual seed or word (truth) is sown in our spiritual mother — our heart. The instruction for this spiritual creation is brilliantly encoded in the beginning and end of the book of Genesis, which means creation, an instruction the children of Israel (chosen to represent us, the people) failed to comprehend, having eyes that could not see and ears that could not hear. So God sowed His seed in another mother, her son (through his word) providing us with the instruction for this spiritual creation.
Jews and Muslims (the seed of Abraham in the literal sense) deny the son. The Holy Quran does not refer to Allah as Father, which is why Muslims reject the idea of the Creator having a Son. But it also reveals the carnal mind, which cannot comprehend how something that is spiritual (Allah) could produce something that is physical (Jesus). Yet, isn’t that the pattern of creation itself? Something unseen producing something seen. If Muslims believe that Allah is the Creator of the heaven(s) and the earth, then they unwittingly believe that Allah has a seed, the means by which these creations came into existence. The son symbolizes the seed by which all things are made. The new Testament of the Holy Bible does refer to God as Father, and yet Christians deny the Son in a different way, saying Jesus is God. There is only ONE God, having ONE seed, called the SON. Christ, which has been attached to the name Jesus is not a surname. It is a power, which is revitalized and regenerated through internal works, which Jesus completed, demonstrating them through external works. The Holy Bible tells us that antichrist is anyone that denies the Father and the Son. Jews, Muslims, and Christians are guilty of this in the literal sense. But we are all antichrist in the spiritual sense, which is to be against the power of creation by failing to perform the spiritual works that results in a spiritual creation.
“Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? ” John 10:36
Jesus never said he was God. He never made himself equal with God. It was the Jews that accused him of saying he was God. What Jesus did say is that he does the works of His Father. Jesus symbolizes the seed of God, the word of God, which is synonymous with the works of creation.
“If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works…” John 10:37
The word believe means to obey; put action to. Christians say they believe in Jesus, but Jesus (as he states) does not care if they believe in him, the man. He wants us to believe (put action to) the works, which Jews, Muslims, and Christians have failed to perform. Jews fail to do the works by not observing the spiritual instruction encoded in the beginning and end of the first book of the Torah. Muslims fail to perform the works because the Quran does not provide the instruction for these spiritual works. And Christians fail to do the works because they have been taught that Jesus did the works for them, which is a blatant LIE!
While it is the energized seed (christ) that does the work (within us) that results in a new creation, it takes effort on our part. That effort is our sincere desire to heal our own mind and heart, which activates the holy spirit (holy energy) from within us. The children of Israel (chosen to represent us, the people) cried out because of their bondage in Egypt. It was this cry that brought Moses to them. Why? Because Moses symbolizes the Spirit of God, which is moved (activated) by our desire to be delivered of our spiritual bondage… “And the Spirit of God moved…” Genesis 1:2. But they (as we) began resisting the Holy Spirit, which they illustrated by resisting Moses— “you do always resist the holy spirit, as your fathers did, so do you.” And since it is the holy spirit that sows the holy seed, they never became a new creation. Their mind and heart was never healed, their “first heaven and first earth” never giving way to “a new heaven and a new earth”(Revelation 21:1), symbolizing a new mind and a new heart. The children of Israel (chosen to represent us, the people) were never healed mentally and emotionally, which is why the world is in the state that it is in!
Abraham was called Father as he represents God. Abraham had two sons. Ishmael and Isaac. The son symbolizes the word of God. Both the Holy Quran and the Holy Bible are considered to be the literal word of Allah or God. However, they do not contain the same knowledge. The Holy Quran may contain knowledge for healing the Mind. But the Holy Bible contains knowledge for healing the Heart, the deepest level of the soul. It is only through the healing of our Heart that we become a new creation, whereby we obtain the salvation of our soul.
“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away… And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem… ”
New Jerusalem symbolizes a new peaceful state of existence, which one enters through this new spiritual creation.
Ishmael was born of Hagar, the bondwoman. Isaac was born of Sarah, the freewoman. The Holy Quran does not contain the instruction through which we are made free of our spiritual bondage. The Holy Bible does.
“For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman… Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Hagar… But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.”
