The Apostle Paul's Revelation, Unveiled

The Apostle Paul's System of Truth concerning what Jesus Revealed, and Paul Explained - Unveiled.  

 

Chapter 1

 

 

In this book, I want to use physical pictures, types, shadows, and symbols to discover spiritual codes, starting with Benjamin. Most people find it difficult to grasp spiritual truths without seeing physical pictures. This I plan to do. We were primarily taught from our bibles, which were incorrectly transcribed scripture.  We then formed perceptions and beliefs from these flawed translations. These beliefs are deeply engrained in our memories and awareness. They can be removed.

The Old Outlook books provide pictures that people can envision. And when explained, these pictures enable us to see spiritual truths. The New Outlook books provide an understanding of those Old Outlook pictures. Much of what we will see will be types and shadows of the Apostle Paul's ministry.

 

When studying Scripture, we must allow Father to open our single eye (spiritual eye or third eye) so we can see spiritually, not carnally. We must look below a surface-level understanding of scripture and "discover the depth of the riches, both of the wisdom and knowledge of our Father.” "I am overwhelmed and apprehended by the depth of the riches, both of the wisdom and knowledge of our Father Creator. That we can discover by listening to the Voice of our Holy Breath; they are not fully searched out by most people or tracked out. We never really knew our Father, but we can." Romans 11:33 RERichmond Tree of Life Bible Translations[1]

 

Genesis 49:27, Jacob is talking to his son Benjamin. Benjamins' name means "Son of the right hand; dexterous, skillful, expert, and quick.” Jacob gives Benjamin a prophecy, and this prophecy is fulfilled in Paul, a Benjamite. He told Benjamin that he would be AS a wolf who would provide food for its pups. Food is a symbol of appropriation of the Living Word.  In the morning (time of great light – understanding) he would eat (study) the prey, and at night (places where people had no light – understanding), he would provide (teach) the food to all who were hungry. When the Apostle Paul was apprehended by what Jesus taught him, he devoured it for over three years. Later, he fed portions to those people who had none at the beginning.

 

Then in Genesis 44:2, we find a cup in Benjamin's sack. We know that cup to be a silver cup, and it was empty. Silver is the biblical metal that represents redemption. In Hebrew, the word "redemption," infers a relationship (OT:1353 geullah (gheh-ool-law' - relationship). In Greek, "redemption" means riddance (NT:629 apolutrosis (ap-ol-oo’-tro-sis -riddance), as in removing something that hinders. Redemption has nothing to do with an act of salvation, as in being saved from punishment.

 

The Apostle Paul fulfilled this prophecy. Father placed in Paul a Benjamite message, which is a perfect understanding of what Jesus revealed to the people. He sought to show everyone's perfect Oneness with Father (relationship). Jesus' passion removed (riddance) from the people that which traduced or hindered them, which was their perceived mistaken identity. Religiosity taught a wrong identity and the false perception of who Father was, along with many other great lies.

 

The cup in Benjamin’s sack represented the consciousness Jesus possessed of eternal Life. This consciousness is attained by coming out of personal self or ego – me, myself, and I. Jesus said, as recorded in John 18:11, "This is the cup which the Father has given me," meaning he did not have any personal ambition.  Jesus' sole motive was to be FOR the people. Everything he did or said was to bless others. He never used his supernatural nature for his own benefit. I desire to do the same: have no personal ambition, bless others, and function supernaturally for the sake of other people.

 

The revelation was revealed to the Apostle Paul the Benjamite, and he clearly explained what was revealed to him. It was the translators, controlled by a religiosity, that distorted what he wrote.   

 

Jesus took away (destroyed) all our confusion about Father, our mistaken identity, and the resulting symptoms (behaviors). He dropped a silver relationship and riddance cup in the mouth of our sack. The symbology of the cup was to reveal spiritual truth to all who would pay attention. To drink of the cup from which Jesus drank is to: 1) rise above all sense desires; 2) to gain mastery over every impulse of that which is without; 3) and to devote one's whole life to that which is within, our Holy Breath and Divine Mind.  The sack would be the Living Word of Truth in us that we are. The thing that opens the Word is the cup of relationship and riddance. Once we understand our Oneness with Father, the riddance of all that hinders is automatic. Thus, the cup is empty of everything but the relationship with our Abba. Next, in Judges chapter 3:12-30, we find a Benjamite judge named Ehud, meaning “united and strong.” Ehud is symbolical of confidence (faith) greatly strengthened by being consciously unified with our Divine Mind. Being consciously united with the Divine Mind within releases spiritual Truth of the Living Word. Benjamites belong to the faith faculty[2] in man. Ehud took a dagger and stuck it into the flesh king, Eglon, who had been ruling and lording over the people.  Eglon means young bullock; calf-like; round; rolling; a threshing drag; an oxcart or a war chariot. The Spiritual symbology of Eglon is a ruling thought belonging to the animal phase of consciousness in the carnally mindful man, especially physical strength. This thought does not get the individual advancement as true unfoldment and growth are concerned. Sense-ruled thoughts goes round and round aimlessly. They drift with the tide of racing thoughts and beliefs and are guided by the emotions with no definite purpose (young bullock, calf-like, round, rolling, a threshing drag, an oxcart, a war chariot).

 

Ehud lied and said, "I have a word from God for you." He took the dagger, picturing the sword of the Spirit or the Word of God and he stuck it into the king. The Bible says dirt came out of that fleshy king. "Dirt" symbolizes carnally unclean thoughts and beliefs.

 

In every one of our lives, there has been a fleshly (law rules or do to be rules) effort to make ourselves holy. It is time this fleshly king be destroyed. The one that destroys the flesh (eating from the do to be tree) king is the Benjamite messenger. He or she places confidence in Fathers eternal decision, decree, and a declaration that we are and were always one with Father and the plural of Father in our bodies. 

 

Next, we find in 1 Samuel chapter 4, a Benjamite gives Eli a message.  Eli, in Hebrew, is pronounce e’-h, meaning lofty; ascent; summit; apex; a going up; exaltation; supreme; highest; Most High, and my God. Even though his true nature is all those things, he lived AS a type of a fleshly carnally minded priest. Eli did not intimately know Father. He served as a high priest of Israel at the time of Samuel's birth (I Sam. 1:9; 4:18).

 

Eli means "a going up" and is typical of the phase of man's consciousness that is constantly seeking spiritual progress but searching in the wrong places. The two sons of Eli represent the natural product of one's desire to grow spiritually. They represent spiritual strength and power. When these faculties begin to awaken, though they are priests in the Temple, there is a great need for discipline and spiritually intelligent direction. If not, they become selfish and act in a purely material plane.

Eli was not of the regular line of the high priesthood but had descended from a younger son of Aaron, Ithamar. I was not able to ascertain why this change in the high-priesthood was made. When Solomon came to the throne, the position of the high priest was given over wholly to Zadok. Zadok descended from Aaron through Eleazar, an older son. Eli, meaning "my God," was an outcry that Jesus uttered while on the cross when he bore man's confusion. Until then, Jesus always referred to our Source as Father, meaning Papa. Matthew 24:46 – Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani; that is to say, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Jesus was experiencing the cry of the soul of every person before him, at the darkest hour of his crucifixion. When the sensual is passing away, it seems as if the person is giving up all his or her life, including every good. The sensual looms so large at this hour that, for the time being, it shuts out Father from the individual’s consciousness who is going through this experience. Father never forsakes anyone. There can be no separation from the Divine mind, only in our mistaken and tainted awareness. For those who will, the glorious resurrection into a greater degree of spiritual Life than ever follows each letting go of old false beliefs. The Apostle Paul wrote, "Taking off the old awareness and putting on the eternally new awareness." The root idea of the word Sabachthani is the cutting loose of bondage.  One becomes free of the slavery imposed by mythological, paganistic teachings and that of religiosity. When one puts on the new awareness, they realize their Oneness with Father, and then the riddance of the old, worn-out beliefs occurs.

 

Eli spiritually symbolizes the intellect under spiritual discipline or growth.  Our first unfoldment is always through the intellect. We receive an intellectual concept of Truth and, in due season, clothe it with substance and Life. If you recall, Eli (meaning going up, ascent) is typical of the phase of man's consciousness that is always seeking spiritual progress and finding none. True progress cannot be made by a merely intellectual understanding of Truth. Eli's eyes waxed old; he did not perceive the Truth. He was not an enlightened man.

 

The enlightened man or woman is always looking for greater revelation of the Truth of the Living Word. This type of person is expecting a fuller understanding of spiritual laws and their application. They know that spiritual maturity will unfold within by applying the spiritual law of Life (Zoe). They are sure they will reach the summit and are always eager and active in reforming their thoughts, beliefs and attitudes.

 

We are kings and priests unto our Father. We have an Old Outlook perception and picture of a fleshly king and a fleshly priest. Fleshly means we "do to be" laws and works – being carnally mindful.  Carnal or fleshly attempts to function as a priest or to rule and reign as one never brings us to our goal. The occurs in one who stays in Contact with their Divine Mind (Father). All self-righteous efforts (dead works) in attempting to “do-to-be” must cease. It is the Benjamite message, believed and received that removes those false thoughts, efforts and beliefs.

 

We hear many people talking about what they must do in the "Church." They say we must rise; rule, reign, and we must do this and that. Their focus is all about do, do, do.  We must know and become aware that inside of us is the Divine mind. When we realize and embrace this truth, our Divine mind will rule and reign naturally. This then causes one to seek to know Father more intimately and the Great Oneness Operation. Then he or she can tell the Truthful Story with no mixture. It is the "Greater is your Holy Breath that is within you" that must come forth. The inner man is the Fathers life. The same Life Jesus possesses is the same life-giving force in all Sons and Daughters. We all have the same Divine mind Jesus had – but we need to learn to possess It and live out of it just as Jesus did. When we possess Fathers Mind within, then we will do the “greater works” Jesus spoke of. 

 

Eli, the old fleshly priest (sense knowledge teacher), almost let the light (spiritual understanding) go out in the Tabernacle (himself and those he ministered to). His brothers, Hophni and Phineas were the offspring of Eli and were priests of Israel. They were rest-less men who desecrated their priestly office. They brought destruction to themselves and caused the downfall of their Fathers house.  Hophni means "hard-fisted" and a "fighter," and Phinehas means "tongue of one who learns from his own sensual experiences (serpent)."[3] When we seek learning apart from our Divine mind, fleshly results will be produced. These include fistfights and being willing to say anything to keep their man-made priesthood going. In this state of awareness, Hophni becomes confrontational, a fighter, and Phineas becomes brazen-faced, a mouth as of a serpent. When one's spiritual strength becomes personalized, it seeks to accomplish its ends through confrontational measures. This creates great resistance in the body; it tries to gratify its desires by means of brazen or bold speech. One's spiritual forces are disorganized by these methods; they become easy prey to material ideas. These material ideas are usually well trained, according to personal standards, and rally to the support of material leadership. When any great demand is made upon the material carnally mindful man, if he undertakes to meet it at all, he throws into his task the full force of his material-minded self.

 

Nevertheless, the light of the Tabernacle was out, and they had a great war. 

 

The Ark of the eternal Covenant was taken by the Philistines, who symbolize dust-dwellers or carnally mindful people. The Ark of the Covenant, sacred Ark, or Ark of the testimony, represents the original spark of Divinity in man's being. It is a covenant or an agreement of the Father with all Sons and Daughters that they possess all that the Father is and has. We can say like Jesus, "All things whatsoever the Father has are mine.” [John 16:15] This original spiritual spark[4] is a very sacred, holy thing. The development of this spark results in man's awareness of his immortality. It is represented as occupying the most holy place in the Temple and is protected and cared for with great devotion. All that man is has been brought forth from this Central Holy Spark, yet the sense-conscious man often is completely unaware of its very existence. Their attention is consumed with sensual desires to the exclusion of Holy Breath.

 

In individual consciousness, when the Ark of the covenant is removed from the heart center (city of Jerusalem), the spiritual forces are scattered. Because of the lack of substantial basis from which to operate, no spiritual unfoldment can take place. It was, necessary to establish this holy meeting place, as David (love) well knew. (II Sam. 6:1-19)

 

David learned that working with Divine spiritual law always brings good. He also learned by his own experience, that not listening to Father with intelligence is the cause of destruction, which are consequences of his choices. David brought the Ark of the Covenant back to its proper place in Jerusalem. Its presence brought the Israelites a measure of peace and harmony. Though their experience of peace was minimal, it was spiritual progress they had not known when the Ark was ascent.

 

In this story, we can read of the people who carried the Ark back. They touched the Ark when the cart tilted, and they died. I believe they died out of fear, more than anything else. They were taught that they were not to touch the Ark. I do not believe their death was from Father. The spiritual understanding of this story is this: no human-minded, carnally mindful person is allowed to touch the true meaning of the Ark, which is our Holy being. No human-minded thought can enter the sacred areas of the spiritual Ark that we are, without producing death to the intimacy of Oneness. Scripture states, "Touch not my consecrated and My inspired speakers, do them no harm." [1 Chronicles 16:22; Psalm 105:5]

 

The problem is, there has been no shortage of people who have taught from a human-minded, sensory knowledge understanding, and touched Fathers consecrated temples (people). There are many who are saying, "No more!" They have heard the call to come up hither, and they will no longer allow the false message of Penal Substitutionary Atonement to interpenetrate their awareness. They are beginning to study to show themselves eternally approved by Father.

 

In his murder and death, Jesus willingly entered our confusion. He was placed into the grave of darkness, which pictures the part of mankind's conscious awareness that was and still is in darkness. Darkness means no spiritual understanding or knowledge. Egypt is a type of darkness (the cosmos world). When we live in an Egyptian awareness everything is a mystery and misunderstood. This mental darkness has gone on for far too long. We are in the day of spiritual wakening, as pictured in the phrase, "The Day of Aquarius."

 

Historically, the Ark was taken to the enemy’s camp, and Hophni and Phinehas (the offspring of the flesh) were killed. A messenger from the tribe of Benjamin ran to Eli. The fleshly priest said, "What is done my son?" Not what "will be done," but "what is done my son." The messenger said, "We have some bad news for you. Your sons are dead, and the Ark of the Covenant has been captured." In other words, everything that you carnally produced in your own life has been done away with. Jesus willing submitted to the realm of man's confusion (darkness).  He said, "If I be lifted up (on the cross), I will draw all (confusion and darkness) into me. Jesus was not talking about being lifted up in times of singing.

 

The Bible records that Eli, an old man, fell back and broke his neck. His was a picture of a carnally mindful leader. [1 Samuel 4] The neck is the seat of the power faculty in humankind; being carnally mindful, in a sense, breaks your power.

Then in Revelation 5:1, we find there is a book in the hand of the One (Father) who sits (at rest) in the throne (us). The book is us!

 

"And I perceived with my single-eye, and understood in the Divine Mind, within (book) these Messenger Pastors, the everlasting consecration to explain and teach the things Jesus sought to reveal and each, empowered by our Divine Mind." Revelation 5:1 RERichmond Tree of Life Bible Translations 

 

Anyone who develops sufficient spiritual understanding may enter the book of Life within their Divine mind and read its pages. He will realize we already know “all things,” meaning the whole - Logos. Staying in Contact with Father helps us discern our thoughts, whether they are of Father or from that which is without. We desire to be people, who is said of us, "Come and see this person, who told me all things, not just what they did."
