Firmament meaning at the bottom
We have a situation today where most of the world and much of the Church is heading straight into the antinchrist delusion. That is a bold statement, as well as a BALD statement, and it will need much fleshing out before you can see it as true.
But starting from that premise, my task as a watchman is not only to alert you to what everything is, but also to give you the tools for understanding ancient mythology, so that you can avoid falling into the trappings of religious thinking.
The task of any watchman is to alert; but unless you can grasp the fact sufficiently to arm yourself with knowledge, you will not benefit. God wants you to get this stuff. That is why a watchmen is always posted, to sound the trumpet of alarm, and also to offer you the tools for understanding the ancient language.
THE WISE MEN COME FROM THE EAST:
When the inner Sun energy of the human solar plexus is born out of the lower flesh. It rises to the Pineal Gland of the brain which throws open the right hemisphere.
Whenever you look North, East is always on the right side.
As this energy from meditation takes place, we begin to experience wisdom from the right side. The wise men come from the East.
This is also consistent with the star being in the East. The sign, the light, is in the right hemisphere of the brain.
As the scripture says in Ezekiel 43:2 " And behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the East." From the right side comes the wisdom, the wise men.

WHICH TRIBE DO YOU BELONG TO ?
In the Bible, in the Book of Numbers, it says that the tribes of Israel assembled in the desert in a very unique configuration.
Let us look at the scripture and see something very special. In Numbers, Chapter 2 and Verse 2, it says that the tribes were to assemble, "by the ensign of their fathers house, They carried a flag, and on the flag was the zodiacal sign, of the leader of that tribe.
The book of Genesis is quite specific as to signs. It says in Genesis 1, that the stars were for seasons, and for signs.
So here we have the tribes of Israel, taking their position at the four compass points, under the sign of their fathers house.
The second part of this wonderful truth, is that the fathers were assigned their houses by Jacob, who in Genesis 49, gave each of them attributes that matched them to a Zodiacal sign.
So as to conserve space here, I will simply outline for you the position of the tribe, and it's zodiacal sign. In this way, you will know what tribe you belong to. But please understand. This positioning concerns the workings of the human mind, and has nothing to do with armies lining up in desert formation.
POSITIONED IN THE NORTH-THE EMOTIONS The tribe of Dan-Scorpio
The tribe of Naphtali, -Capricorn The tribe of Asher,- Aries
POSITIONED IN THE SOUTH-THE PHYSICAL The tribe of Reuben-Libra
The tribe of Simeon-Gemini The tribe of Gad-Sagittarius
POSITIONED IN THE WEST-THE INTELLECT The tribe of Ephraim,-Aquarius
The tribe of Manasseh,- Cancer The tribe of Benjamin-Virgo
POSITIONED IN THE EAST-SPIRIT The tribe of Judah-Leo
The tribe of Issachar-Taurus The tribe of Zebulun-Pisces
POSITIONED IN THE CENTER-THE TABERNACLE-DIVINE MIND The tribe of Levi-Gemini
Notice that there are 13 tribes. Simeon and Levi are twins. Gemini.
As we develop this material, it is most interesting when you begin to understand, why the tribes were positioned at a particular compass point, and how we may learn of our origins, and future, by understanding our tribe.
You see, the Bible places everyone in the universe in a particular tribe, for a particular reason.
Osama bin Laden’s reply,To America:
I address only a few words. I swear by Allah that America will never again know security until Palestine knows it and until all Western infidel armies leave the holy lands. And he includes in “the holy lands” Palestine and the Arabian peninsula, all of the Land promised to Abraham and his descendants from the wadi of Egypt to the Great River, the river Euphrates» (Gn 15.18), «from sea to sea. (Ps 72.8), in order to re-establish the House of Abraham on its foundations (’al-qawa ida), as is written in the Koran (II, 127; cf. Resurrection no 13, January 2002, p. 11).
AGAIN THEY ARE READING SPIRITUAL BOOKS LITERALLY. The holy Land is your Brain.
Your mind on pork!
Land of CANAAN, oink! oink!
Adam and Eve, god throws them out (3:1-24). Godless in the wilderness, the two procreate.
We follow their bloodline through their third son Seth, past nine generations to a man called Noah.
Nine is important, as you will see.
instructions from this same god, saving himself and all living things (!) from a catastrophic flood (4:1 - 9:28). His three sons, according to tradition, are the progenitors of three major races: Shem the Semites; Yaphet the Aryans; and Ham - the Hamites
through the oldest son Shem, past another nine generations, to Abraham (10:1-32 / 11:10-32).
Do you see the NINE again.
We get to know Abe (12:1 - 25:18), his son Isaac (25:19 - 26:34), and his grandson Jacob (27:1 - 35:22), whose nickname becomes “Israel”.
These are the “patriarchs” of the Israelite people, and all who descend from Jacob/Israel will be called “Israelites”.
Jacob becomes IS Ra EL, this is important because IS RA EL means ISIS the feminine, RA the masculine and EL the spiritual.
This is the ancient meaning of IS RA EL in the bible MYTHOLOGY.
Jacob/Israel has twelve sons (35:23-25). He greatly favours his eleventh son Joseph, and in vengeful jealousy, Joseph’s brothers sell him into slavery. Joseph ends up in Egypt.
He has twelve sons, and there are twelve signs of the zodiac, and you have 12 cranial nerves in your brain (temple).
Don't forget Jesus was crucified in a place spiritually called sodom and EGYPT. Not literally, but SPIRITUALLY the bible says.
Egypt is used to describe the lower mind, a person operating at the gut animal instinct level of life.
He eventually climbs to a powerful political position, working for the pharaoh. He gains control of all the Egyptians’ food during a drought, and then he bankrupts the Egyptian people and turns them all into sharecroppers for the pharaoh, making the pharaoh rich and himself as well (37:1 - 44:34). This means the higher mind is winning the internal war over the lower. (the egyptians)
His brothers and their families are brought to Egypt to live with Joseph in comfort (45:1 - 47:12; 47:27), while all the Egyptians have been enslaved to him (47:13-26). The lower mind is now a slave to joseph, the higher mind.
The story we’ve all heard tells of a good and humble man, charged by God to go into Egypt and save the horribly oppressed Israelite slaves.
Moses is your intellect.
With the help of this terrifying God, the long-suffering Moses leads the slaves out of bondage.
This prepares them for their coup-de-grace: they will invade a beautiful land promised to them by this God, murder all of the peoples who live there, and steal their stuff. The land of CANAAN, what is this land of Canaan? did it really exist?
To understand the mythology, a few more things are needed first.
We know that the IS RA ELites are god's chosen, these are the ones of us that go into meditation, and seek the right hand path, and manifest the three qualities.
So where is god's temple, where does god reside? Where is Canaan? The answer will surprise you.
Zion or Sion [sI'un] , section of Jerusalem, defined in the Bible as the City of David. The new Jerusalem, the Ark of the convenant.
Originally the name referred to the Jebusite fortress conquered by David, on the southeastern hill of Jerusalem.
Zion was later applied to the hill where the Temple stood, and in turn came to denote the Temple area itself.
Zion is symbolic of Jerusalem, of the Promised Land, of Israel's hope of returning to Palestine (hence the term (ZIONISM), and of heaven or God's dwelling-place with his people.
Galilee, means circuit, city of David, Jeresulim and Golgotha and calvary both of which, which means skull, all mean the BRAIN.This is where the crucifixion takes place, where GOD dwells.
"Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto king Solomon in Jerusalem, that they might bring up the ark of the covenant of the Lord out of the city of David, which [is] Zion.
And all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto king Solomon at the feast in the month Ethanim, which [is] the seventh month.
And all the elders of Israel came, and the priests took up the ark. And they brought up the ark of the Lord, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and all the holy vessels that [were] in the tabernacle, even those did the priests and the Levites bring up.
And king Solomon, and all the congregation of Israel, that were assembled unto him, [were] with him before the ark, sacrificing sheep and oxen, that could not be told nor numbered for multitude 1Kings 8:1:9" Saul, David and Solomon were the first 3 kings of Israel. All 3 of them reigned for 40 years.
Its the human brain , in the field of consciousness.
This is the Temple of the Lord of hosts. Jerusalem, Zion, city of David, the ARC of the covenant, the Ark of the testamomy, any city in the bible etc. its simply the temple built without any tool. The human brain.
Mt. Abarim Mt. Ararat Mt. Bashan Mt. Carmel Mt.Ebal Mt.Gerizim Mt.Gilboa Mt.Gilead Mt. Hermon Mt.Hor Mt.Horeb Mt.Lebanon Mt. Moriah Mt.Nebo Mt Pisgah Mt.Seir
Mt. Sinai Mt. TaborMt. Zion All of these represent the highest attainment of consciousness, described as mountains, when one has reached the highest plateau, you have ascended the mountain, always the highest nadir. In Meditation.
Mark14:58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands. This is what thinks of themples made WITH HANDS, it says he will destroy them
Acts 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet.
For Solomon's Temple (a permanent, fixed location; a physical representation and foreshadow of the true spiritual temple to follow) thirty thousand men cut and squared timbers out of the mountains, cut huge stones out of quarries, and transported them to the temple mount over the space of over seven years.
You see here the numerology of thirty which reduces to three, and the number seven.
SEVEN is important.
The assembly was made without sound of tool. (1Ki 5:13-18) SEVEN years it took to build the TEMPLE and all without tools, how can you construct buildings WITHOUT tools?
Do you see now?
Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands Mar 13:1-2 And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings [are here]. And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings?
there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. So much for jesus's thoughts on temples made with hands.
If temples made with hands by religious authorities are so holy, then why did Jesus say that the Jerusalem Temple will come to naught.
This prophesy came to pass in 70 A.D. when the temple was utterly destroyed by the Romans, leaving no stone unturned. Anything that exalts itself above God and rejects Jesus Christ, will ultimately face destruction, not eternal hell fire, but eternal death.
I cr 3:15 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? God does not dwell in man-made temples.
As you can see god dwells in temples made without hands, and without tools, the only place this is, is your brain (temple, with the twelve gates, 12 cranial nerves.
And this stone, which I have set [for] a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.
"here it says salvation is only in the chief corner stone (Jesus) not man made buildings made of wood and stone, there is no salvation in any other," 1 kings:7 And the house, when it was in building, was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither: so that
there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building.
No they weren't wearing ear plugs either 1 kings 6:14 So Solomon built the house, and finished it.
It was built and finished without tools by SOLOMON. 1kngs 6:38 The first of the three buildings was erected by Solomon. It was beautiful, requiring SEVEN years in the construction. "seven years means raising the energy through the SEVEN nerve centers called Chakras"
1 kings 6:8 The door for the middle chamber was in the right side of the house: and they went up with winding stairs into the middle chamber, and out of the middle into the third.
"this is the third ventricle of the brain"
Acts 7:44-50 a tabernacle for the God of Jacob. But Solomon built Him a House. Howbeit the most High dwells not in temples made with hands; as said the prophet, Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool: what house will you build me? says the Lord: or what is the place of My rest?
Has not My hand made all these things?"
Today God dwells in many temples, but they are not made with hands .
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are? (I Corinthians 3:16,17).
"Jesus Christ himself," though the builder, is "the cornerstone. By him all the building, having been joined
JESUS: I will DESTROY THIS TEMPLE that is MADE WITH HANDS, and WITHIN THREE DAYS I WILL BUILD ANOTHER MADE WITHOUT HANDS
So as you have seen god's temple is built without hands, he DOES not dwell in temples made WITH hands, and hid chosen people are the IS RA ELITES and he gave the land of CANAAN, why where is the land of Canaan, and who are the canaanites?
Remember that egypt is a place of spiritual desolation, the place where jesus was crucified.
The canaanites are the the thought patterns of your mind that originate from the lower mind quality, this is the land of Canaan, the human mind, under the influence of the pharoh, egypt, the Canaanites etc, it's all the same stuff, it's simply describing the mind when we are under the influence of scorpio, or the animal nature.
God has to return this land back to the IS RA ELites, because you only have the one brain, when you are born, this brain is under control of the Canaanites, symbolicaaly of course, these are just names.
Canaanites are thought patterns that arise out of the lower animal mind.
God's chosen people will return, the higher mind, the new Jerusalem that will come down from Heaven.
This is what the mythology is talking about.
The Canaanites will be driven out, those lower mind quality thought patterns that run amuck in your psyche daily.
Ham, the father of Canaan, saw that his father was naked and went outside and told his brothers. - Genesis 9:22 ham represents the lower mind, he thinks he is better and so forth.
Then he cursed the descendants of Canaan, the son of Ham (pork minded): "A curse on the Canaanites! May they be the lowest of servants to the descendants of Shem and Japheth." - Genesis 9:25
Then Noah said, "May Shem be blessed by the LORD my God; and may Canaan be his servant. - Genesis 9:26 This again is the duality of the mind. yin and yang.
May God enlarge the territory of Japheth, and may he share the prosperity of Shem;* and let Canaan be his servant."1 - Genesis 9:27
The descendants of Ham were Cush, Mizraim,* Put, and Canaan.2 - Genesis 10:6
Canaan's oldest son was Sidon, the ancestor of the Sidonians. Canaan was also the ancestor of the Hittites, - Genesis 10:15
Eventually the territory of Canaan spread from Sidon to Gerar, near Gaza, and to Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, near Lasha. - Genesis 10:19
Terah took his son Abram, his daughter-in-law Sarai, and his grandson Lot (his son Haran's child) and left Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan. But they stopped instead at the village of Haran and settled there. - Genesis 11:31
He took his wife, Sarai, his nephew Lot, and all his wealth his livestock and all the people who had joined his household at Haran and finally arrived in Canaan. Genesis 12:5
Traveling through Canaan, they came to a place near Shechem and set up camp beside the oak at Moreh. At that time, the area was inhabited by Canaanites. - Genesis 12:6
So while Abram stayed in the land of Canaan, Lot moved his tents to a place near Sodom, among the cities of the plain. - Genesis 13:12
So Sarai, Abram's wife, took Hagar the Egyptian servant and gave her to Abram as a wife. (This happened ten years after Abram first arrived in the land of Canaan.) - Genesis 16:3
Yes, I will give all this land of Canaan to you and to your offspring forever. And I will be their God. - Genesis 17:8
she died at Kiriath-arba (now called Hebron) in the land of Canaan. There Abraham mourned and wept for her. - Genesis 23:2
So Abraham buried Sarah there in Canaan, in the cave of Machpelah, near Mamre, which is at Hebron. - Genesis 23:19
This is mythology describing the mind under the influence of the world systems, the matrix if you will, after all god asked the children of Israel if they could open the matrix.
So Jacob settled again in the land of Canaan, where his father had lived. - Genesis 37:1
There he met a Canaanite woman, the daughter of Shua, and he married her. - Genesis 38:2
So Jacob's* sons arrived in Egypt along with others to buy food, for the famine had reached Canaan as well.1 - Genesis 42:5
Joseph recognized them instantly, but he pretended to be a stranger. "Where are you from?" he demanded roughly. "From the land of Canaan," they replied. "We have come to buy grain." - Genesis 42:7
See the mythology of the promised land, the land of canaan, to be given to the IS RA EL ites, god's chosen people.
2 "Give these instructions to the Israelites: When you come into the land of Canaan, which I am giving you as your special possession, these will be the boundaries.
3 The southern portion of your country will extend from the wilderness of Zin, along the edge of Edom. The southern boundary will begin on the east at the Dead Sea.*1
4 It will then run south past Scorpion Pass* in the direction of Zin. Its southernmost point will be Kadesh-barnea, from which it will go to Hazar-addar, and on to Azmon.2
5 From Azmon the boundary will turn toward the brook of Egypt and end at the Mediterranean Sea.*
6 "Your western boundary will be the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea.
7 "Your northern boundary will begin at the Mediterranean Sea and run eastward to Mount Hor,
8 then to Lebo-hamath, and on through Zedad
9 and Ziphron to Hazar-enan. This will be your northern boundary.
10 "The eastern boundary will start at Hazar-enan and run south to Shepham,
11 then down to Riblah on the east side of Ain. From there the boundary will run down along the eastern edge of the Sea of Galilee,*4
12 and then along the Jordan River to the Dead Sea.
These are the boundaries of your land." The human brain!
13 Then Moses told the Israelites, "This is the territory you are to divide among yourselves by sacred lot. The LORD commands that the land be divided up among the nine and a half remaining tribes.
14 The families of the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh have already received their inheritance of land
15 on the east side of the Jordan River, across from Jericho."
16 And the LORD said to Moses,
17 "These are the men who are to divide the land among the people: Eleazar the priest and Joshua son of Nun.
18 Also enlist one leader from each tribe to help them with the task.
19 These are the tribes and the names of the leaders: Original ten tribes of Israel
Judah Caleb son of Jephunneh
20 Simeon Shemuel son of Ammihud
21 Benjamin Elidad son of Kislon
22 Dan Bukki son of Jogli
23 Manasseh son of Joseph Hanniel son of Ephod
24 Ephraim son of Joseph Kemuel son of Shiphtan
25 Zebulun Elizaphan son of Parnach
26 Issachar Paltiel son of Azzan
27 Asher Ahihud son of Shelomi
28 Naphtali Pedahel son of Ammihud
29 These are the men the LORD has appointed to oversee the dividing of the land of Canaan among the Israelites."
Numbers chapter 35
14 three on the east side of the Jordan River and three on the west in the land of Canaan.
15 These cities are for the protection of Israelites, resident foreigners, and traveling merchants. Anyone who accidentally kills someone may flee there for safety.
16 " `But if someone strikes and kills another person with a piece of iron, it must be presumed to be murder, and the murderer must be executed.
17 Or if someone strikes and kills another person with a large stone, it is murder, and the murderer must be executed.
18 The same is true if someone strikes and kills another person with a wooden weapon. It must be presumed to be murder, and the murderer must be executed.
19 The victim's nearest relative is responsible for putting the murderer to death. When they meet, the avenger must execute the murderer.
20 So if in premeditated hostility someone pushes another person or throws a dangerous object and the person dies, it is murder.
21 Or if someone angrily hits another person with a fist and the person dies, it is murder. In such cases, the victim's nearest relative must execute the murderer when they meet.
22 But suppose someone pushes another person without premeditated hostility, or throws something that unintentionally hits another person,
23 or accidentally drops a stone on someone, though they were not enemies, and the person dies.
24 If this should happen, the assembly must follow these regulations in making a judgment between the slayer and the avenger, the victim's nearest relative.
25 They must protect the slayer from the avenger, and they must send the slayer back to live in a city of refuge until the death of the high priest.
26 But if the slayer leaves the city of refuge,
27 and the victim's nearest relative finds him outside the city limits and kills him, it will not be considered murder.
28 The slayer should have stayed inside the city of refuge until the death of the high priest. But after the death of the high priest, the slayer may return to his own property.
29 These are permanent laws for you to observe from generation to generation, wherever you may live.
30 All murderers must be executed, but only if there is more than one witness. No one may be put to death on the testimony of only one witness.
31 Also, you must never accept a ransom payment for the life of someone judged guilty of murder and subject to execution; murderers must always be put to death.
32 And never accept a ransom payment from someone who has fled to a city of refuge, allowing the slayer to return to his property before the death of the high priest.

22:14 Blessed are those who do his commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the city.
22:15 Outside are the dogs , the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
Outside the meditative state, under the control of the lower mind is where the dogs are, these are just symbols mind you.
Where the dogs once lived, but the dogs (canines)(Canaan) were driven out by the israelites.
The animal mind, Dogs are just used as symbols in the bible narative, dogs are kind loving animals in reality. The mythicists should have used another animal as a symbol, instead of mans best and loyal friend.

21:19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones.
The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 21:20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it:
for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day:

Don't read mythology LITERALLY, it all has a higher meaning.
Cain slew Abel, Seth knew not why. Then the children of Israel began to multiply.
But why should the children, why should they die? So we asked the Lord, and the Lord said:
"Man means nothing, he means less to Me, than the lowest cactus flower, or the humblest yucca tree.
He chases around the desert, 'cause he thinks that's where I'll be And that's why I love mankind.
I recoil in horror at the foulness of thee, The filth and the squalor, the pain and the misery.
How We laugh up here in Heaven at the prayers you offer me And that's why I love mankind.
The Christians and the Jews, were having a Jamboree, The Muslims and Hindu joined in on satellite T.V.
They picked their four greatest priests, and they began to speak and they said, "A plague is on the world; No man is free.
The temples that we build to You have fallen down into the sea. Lord, if You won't take care of us, please, please let us be." And the Lord said, the Almighty Lord said,
I burn down your cities, how blind you must be. I take you AND your children while you say how blessed are We; You all must be crazy to put your faith in Me.
And that's why I love mankind you really NEED Me, THAT'S why I love mankind.
Eh, Dubya "won" again so now we've declared war on ourselves.
There was never a simultaneous universal revelation, and there is absolutely no evidence of a universally compassionate, omnibeneficient active (or passive) Principal Being (or First Principle).
The significance of the number 9
In the Book of Revelation there are two numbers whose meanings have caused much discussion. These two numbers, the 666 and the 144,000 both vibrate to a 9. The 144,000 who were sealed as members of the Tribes of Israel refers to developed or saved humanity, which is the number 9.
The seal refers to the protective "sign in their foreheads," or in the right hand (Revelations 9:4). *The pineal gland)
The 666, described as the "number of the beast" (Revelations 13:18), refers to humanity functioning at the materialistic unregenerated level.
Thus these two numbers mystically refer to the evolution of humanity, either as "lost" (666) or "saved" (144,000).
Humanity, symbolically called the "hand of God," demonstrates the same principle.
Hand is a 9-powered word and refers to humanity as one of God's helpers in bringing forth His Kingdom.
The nine statements of blessing in the Sermon on the Mount, which show a completed cycle, represent the essence of the New Testament teaching that the greatest of all power is love.
Love is a 9-powered word. "He that loveth not knoweth not God, for God is love," (I John 4:8). "God is love, and he that dwelleth in love, dwelleth in God, and God in him," (I John 4:16). In the ninth hour the hour of prayer Christ on the cross said, "It is finished," (John 19:30).
9 is symbolically man apart from god, but moving towards god.
If two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them," (Matthew 18:20).
This also refers to the three parts of the mind, and avers that if all agree, the Christ power will prevail.
The story of Jesus is a story of 3's. He rose after three days and he was denied thrice by Peter.
The fact that Jesus was crucified between two thieves is symbolic of the divided system of belief which has stolen many of the true teachings.
In addition, there are three levels of meaning or knowledge which the reader can acquire. The first level comes through the conscious mind and applies to the material or physical world.
The second level is absorbed through the subconscious mind and is acquired by means of parables and symbols.
The third level deals with revelations on the super-conscious plane of thought and affirms that we must rediscover who we are from within.
The Bible is the story of humanity and its generations (growth and attainment), of its degeneration (the prodigal who left his father's house forgetful of his divinity) and of its regeneration through the possible path of return to the consciousness within which proclaims, "Thy Will be done."
The land of Cannan is the human brain being controlled by the lower ego or carnal mind, Egypt, babylon etc....
Is Ra El must return and reclaim the promised land.
It's sittin a top your shoulders, it's not a piece of dirt in former palestine.
It is the full manifested power of the cosmos, flowing through every vein artery and cell of your body.
It is the LIGHT that has come down from heaven, the new Jerusalem, Mt. Zion etc...
The highest state of consciousness achieved by the method of meditation.

Definition of firmament, esoteric definition, not LITERAL.
And God said let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters and let it divide the waters from the waters... And God called the firmament heaven.
The firmament that is divided is watery regions below the diaphragm, from the watery regions above, the brain, the firmament above. The firmament above which is the higher state of consciousness is heaven.
The realizations which come to us through reflection upon this symbolism give us an insight of the most vivid character into the significance of the great doctrine and fact of the incarnation. If the spiritual man is composed of fire (spirit, LIGHT) and air (mind), and the natural man of water (emotion) and earth (sensation), the incarnation of the higher in the body of the lower carries every suggestion of the phenomenon of the introduction of fire into water.
And precisely under these terms the arcane scientists conceived it for purposes of graphic representation. It vividly portrays the entire moral-spiritual conflict in the life of man as an analogue of the struggle between fire and water.
Gross sensuality will as effectually douse the pure fire of spirituality as water will quench fire. From the other side the superior chemical power of fire can dry out and evaporate the dank, moldy "moist nature" of the carnal impulses.
It is this latter symbolism that is the interior sense of all the allegories of God drying up the rivers to effectuate the passage of his children across their period of immersion in bodies that are three-fourths water. The power of the sunlight of mind and spirit to purify and cleanse the foul corruption of the flesh is the ground-base of the theological hypostatization of "purgatory."
Symbol of the higher mental plane, as the firm foundation of creation, and as a central plane of consciousness dividing the inner planes of reality from the lower planes of illusion.
The heigher mind from the lower mind
Upper Egypt from lower Egypt.
The firmament above the diaphragm, and the firmament below the diaphragm.
"And god made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament, and it was so, And god called the firmament heaven" gen 1,7,8
Heaven is the higher chakras above the diaphragm, and hell is the chakras below the diaphragm. The watres above is the brain and all of the cerebro spinal fluids thereof.
watery regions below
This is symbolism describing the watery regions below the diaphragm.
Under the heaven in other words below the brain, the firmament below, the machine plant of the body (the physical), always described as the earth.
The dry land is symbolism describing the condition of the mind apart from the higher consciousness, this state is always dry or a wilderness. This dry state is earth, the physical. grass, herbs, seeds, and trees yielding fruit after it's kind is deep symbolism describing the state of the mind.
seeds are a symbol of the germs of the higher emotions arising from the higher state of consciousness.
"Understanding is the spiritual firmament whereby human conception distinguishes between truth and error, understanding is the line of demarcation between the real and the unreal"
"The Samhita (two worlds joined together), The former half is the earth, the latter half the heaven, their union, the air. Upanishad.
The region below is the lower nature (hell), the region above is the higher nature (heaven).
" He deliberated, I will create worlds, the ocean, the realms of light, death, the waters. that is the ocean beyond the heaven, the heaven is it's floor.
The atmosphere is the realms of light. Death is the earth. the waters are whatever is beneath it. the Upanishads.
The watres are the two ends of the universe, above and below, and between them the clear atmosphere. Upanishads.
"Over the heads and the outstretched wings of the cherubim is a rigid pavement or firmament, like crystal"
The text says the firmament "was as the color of the terrible crystal"
In other words the color was of purity and truth difficult to attain.
Failure to attain is terrible and dreadful, for it means the soul is precipitated again to incarnation (hell).
By the firmament over the heads of the cherubim is meant heaven.
"The master soared upward to the lower firmament. And all the powers of the firmament were in great confusion because of the light, and seeing the mystery of their names and powers inscribed in it. Sophia.
The master jesus soaring upward typifies the ascent of the christ soul in the mind. the lower firmament signifies the lower mind wherein confusion and disturbance arise through the struggle between the analytical faculties which differentiate, define, and cramp (names), and intuition and inspiration (light), which presents the truth from within the soul to the mind.
That is what is meant by the firmament.
It is the interiorizing of our body and the exteriorizing of our soul." It is the unification of our physical body with our spiritual body that we desire now. Specifically, a human being living in perfect harmony with the elements of Nature, earth, water, air, fire, is a light being, the renewed mind.
They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; - Psalm 107:23 That's the lower mind, in the abyss, below the diaphragm.
"One must not fear the Wrathful Deities, but must realize the gifts they have to offer and realize that they come from you. They are part of your consciousness. When one embraces the Wrathful Deities one becomes enlightened.
Do not flee these deities they are coming from your own mind
Larry L, and other Christ cult followers are actually stuck in the firmament below (the lower mind thinking, hell), below the diaphragm, this is the place of popular religion.
The mystic is soaring in the firmament above, where Jesus awaits in the "air", this is heaven, a state of mind not bound by dogmatic religious thinking.
You can't convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it's based on a deep seated need to believe. It is based uopn emotiomalism. [Carl Sagan]
That's the central problem, a person feels the need to believe, and that is opposed to "knowing"
A religious person sets aside all reason, if some preacher somewhere at sometime told them to pray to peter pan, they would pray to peter pan.
The Bible actually dares us to believe it! Walls that fall down, iron that floats, donkeys that talk, and people who live to be nearly a thousand years old are all part of God's "Word of Truth".
It certainly is a strange and unbelievable kind of truth, isn't it? "A man-swallowing whale", you say? Really? You expect me to swallow that? [sarcastic/satire]
Although the Biblical myth of cosmogenesis is still taken seriously by fundamentalists, no scientifically mature person believes it as literal fact.
This literal interpretation of Biblical sayings is contrary to their original poetic inspirational intent.
The Gnostic interpretation of the genesis myth is that it is a spiritual allegory rather than a history with a moral, a term Elaine Pagels calls allegorical exegis.
(a) Myth:The Biblical sabbatical creation myth of Genesis 1, despite being a recent entry into the Old Testament from the Priestly author of the 6th century BC, evokes with power and poetic beauty the creation as an evolutionary bio cosmology in which first the heavenly bodies, then the earth's geography, The human mind, in the field of consciousness.
It is deep symbolism describing the enlightenment experience, and requires exoteric understanding, other wise it is a foolish childrens story.
It is obsurd at every turn taken literally! imagine some God using the etimology of days to describe the creation, even if it were years, days and years were created by humns to measure time, using the rotation of the earth and it's cycle around the sun (jesus).

The entire Bible, every story, from end to end is inside your head, it is an account of mans evolutionary progress out of the gross material matter of the animal quality of his soul, to the higher spiritual mind, from above ( the universe).
Proverbs 15:24 A word to the wise above (using your head, the higher conscious mind) you can depart from Hell beneath, (being ruled by your lower nature).
“If eleven hundred years are justly called the Dark Ages how can mankind be said to have been enlightened by the Gospel?”
The creation of the human mind, as the divine fallen angel/angle plunged into that physical body, the tomb, the flesh pots of Egypt.
It's not that I'm so smart , it's just that I stay with problems longer .
The drying up of the Red Sea and again of the Jordan River for the facilitation of the Israelite crossing is the amplification, is the mythicization, of the power of mind and soul (heated air) to extinguish the elements of sensuality and emotion, as impediments to the soul’s progress across the sea of life.
