The Ark & The Beast
Rick gave a great comment on verse 6. I think it is worth repeating:
“I looked up the word tabernacle in a pocket dictionary and it said, only; Large place of worship. But I seem to remember, from my Catholic upbringing, that it really refers to a place within the larger place, wherein God dwells, or what would be called the Holy of Holies. In a temple or church, this is an area that is said to be off limits to all but the high priests. In us it would be that place, within, where God or that still small voice resides. The Christ denounced the priests for not allowing the people to enter into the kingdom of heaven and not even going in themselves. When a person does go in, to seek the Truth instead of relying on the authority of the Beast, he will be branded as a heretic, or enemy of the state. Perhaps this is what is meant by the Beast having the power to make war against the saints.”
The children of Israel made a portable tabernacle and took it with them in the wilderness. Inside the tabernacle was a smaller structure called the Holy of Holies and inside that was the Arc of the Covenant.
The tabernacle of God is you, a reﬂection of God, made in His/Her image. The Holy of Holies is the higher energies of the heart centers. I say centers because there are two heart centers: one around the area of the physical heart and one in the head. Interestingly we also think in the head and in the heart. We all have heard the scripture: “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
The Ark of the Covenant was said to contain the presence of God, the commandments written by the ﬁnger of God, manna, and Aaron’s rod.
The Ark represents that secret place within you where the Spirit of God, and Christ consciousness is found. Within yourself and all other human beings is available all knowledge written by the ﬁnger of God.
The covenant associated with the Ark can be best expressed with another scripture:
But this [shall be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. Jer 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: For they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Jer 31:33
This scripture tells us of a time to come when we will not need priests and ministers in the normal sense because “they shall all know me.” If we all have the knowledge of God available within us, the only reason we need a teacher is to remind us to go inward and search for the truth – not to be the truth for us.
This is what I am attempting to do. Not be as a part of the Beast and tell you to believe me because I say it, but go within and ﬁnd out for yourself if what I say is true or false. Then when you are looking within, you are likely to ﬁnd other things to share in return. That is exactly what is happening with this group, and will continue to happen on an increasing scale. Samu was so excited by something he found in his Ark he could hardly sleep. There is nothing more exciting than opening the Ark of the Covenant within your own Holy of Holies and reading or conﬁrming the words of the Logos.
So how does the Beast blaspheme the Tabernacle of God? The ways are without number so we’ll just name a few.
First he tries to make you doubt yourself as being worthy to enter the Holy of Holies. You have sinned and therefore need another more righteous than yourself to enter in and read the tablets in the Ark that are too holy for your eyes. Not only must this priest read the Ark for you, but he must also tell you what it means and how to fulﬁll what it means.
Thus does the Beast blaspheme the tabernacle of God by deceiving the rightful inhabitant to set aside what is rightfully his. The Beast is also a thief because he takes your rights from you, casts you out of your own house and puts the real Ark of the Covenant in a dark place where he hopes you will never ﬁnd it.
The Ark was also said to contain the manna, which miraculously fed the Israelites in the wilderness.
Jesus spoke of the meaning of this manna in the Ark:
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: And the bread that I will give is my ﬂesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” John 6:47-51
There is an inner Christ that dwells within our own Ark and if we eat of this we shall never taste death. There is a deep mystery here.
Finally. the Ark was said to contain the Rod of Aaron that was used to create many miracles and even part the Red Sea. The Red sea is symbolic of ﬂuctuating emotions that cover up the power of the Arc within us so we give power and glory to the Beast instead of to God. We must open the Ark, take the rod of power and command the negative emotions to part and then walk forth as a peaceful warrior amidst the turbulence as if there were no turbulence. You will have the peace of God amidst the illusion of the crushing and deadly waters of hate, jealousy and envy.
Next question. Verse six also says the Beast blasphemed the name of God and them that dwell in heaven. Remember the name of God is “I AM BECOMING THAT WHICH I DECIDE TO BECOME.” Why has the Beast sought to bury that name so only a handful of people on the planet even know its identity and meaning? So how does the Beast blaspheme the name of God and those who dwell in heaven?
Concerning the 42 months Betty wrote:
“Here’s the number 6 again – 4 + 2 = 6 – the number of completion of process on the lower planes, & if we multiply the 7 Chakras or Spiritual Centers in the body by 6, we get the number 42, which also implies completion upon the lower planes.
“So what I think this means is that the human intellect had cut itself off from all that is ONE, DIVINE, and was/is lacking in spiritual orientation during the period of it’s apparent unobstructed license to indulge itself, until it begins the evolutionary journey back to it’s Source through the 6 Spiritual Centers in the body – and once the 6th one is complete or ﬁnished, then the 7th or Crown Chakra follows, which stands for consummation or completeness of the evolutionary process on the lower plane and the beginning of the process on the next plane.”
That’s very creative thinking and very thought-provoking from a higher level of interpretation. But when we see these higher levels they help us to understand the lower levels.
I will make a prediction for the members of the forum. There will be times months and even years from now when some of the things we have talked about now will be going through your mind and suddenly you will see the thought in a totally different way that brings you to a higher level of understanding. This higher level of interpretation often just comes out of the blue when you are not expecting it. Many of you will understand what I mean.
