The Mind of Christ:

St Paul, being one of the greatest and deepest minds of all the authors of the Bible has a unique theme that repeats 164 times in his 13 letters which is, “In Christ/Christ in you,”  He is trying to get a point across that we have something very very important to focus on.  We as Christians need to live up to our name as representatives of Christ, such as Philippians 2:5 “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” or Colossians 1:27 “To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:” and so the list goes on.

To turn this Jewish and in the format of Marriage, we get the same thing as in Genesis 2:24 “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”  Now the whole Christian walk from Eden forward is in the framework of an arranged marriage between our Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus Christ, the fully fulfilment, or culmination of this is the New Earth, but in accepting salvation we are actually Christ so at that point we are now already engaged to Christ, which is in the Hebrew perspective is a marriage although we are not yet married and living in a marriage relationship, we can by faith right now actually live as Christ’s wife as we prepare for our Bridegroom (Second Coming) even before the completion of the wedding ceremony which is future and in Heaven.

Now the Wilderness Sanctuary built by Mosses, the Court furniture was all brass (Copper/Tin alloy), Copper = God and tin = sinful man as we have already discovered.  As Brass we have the two metals so intermingled we have an alloy or in other words we have marriage, or complete oneness of God and man.

Now we human’s can get our minds around alloys, the Sanctuary and how it works and around marriage, so why do we have a problem of trying to keep Christ from being central in our lives.  We happily sing “not I but Christ,” and then take over the driving seat and complain to God when we crash our lives, it’s his entire fault.  We need to give Christ the ignition keys and hop into the passenger’s seat, or in nautical terms give the helm to the Captain and Commander of our faith.

Read the 10 Commandments slower and we get this about false witness, trying to portray that we are Christian believers and you are not; or coveting, when Christ is supposed to be at the helm, there we are turning this way and that messing our lives up.

What will it take for us believers to actually demonstrate daily that we are what we claim to be, “in Christ/Christ in us,” and with the mind of Christ?  Sin is classified as Darkness and the Gospel is classified as Light, so when was the last time we let the light of the Gospel into our minds and let it shine into all the grubby little recesses and onto our secret and pet sins, and to clean us and then to shine out.  In the seven Hebrew festivals we find that removing leaven (in Hebrew sin=yeast) before the feast of Unleaven Bread is an intense search to remove sin/yeast from the home.  As the old Country Gospel song says, “You can’t be a beacon if your light don’t shine,” or you can’t be a Christian if Christ’s not inside.

1 Corinthians 6:19,20  “What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?  For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

No matter where we look in Scripture we come across the same theme as Paul is focusing on, “In Christ/Christ In you.”  Just as a warning, Paul tells us if we fail to have Christ in us then we are defiled and in 1 Corinthians 3:17 we have the outcome for those people;  “If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] ye are.”

Pilate’s question still stands for us individually to answer Matthew 27:22  “Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ?”  Paul knows what the two options are and then pushes 164 times the best choice; “In Christ/Christ in you.”  Joshua made the same point in Joshua 24:15 “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that [were] on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

Please right now throw out whatever is enthroned in your Life/Mind and enthrone King Jesus there forever, In Christ/Christ in you.

 

Bible Numeric’s:

For those who are familiar with the work of Panin and the perfectness of the words and sentences that the writers of scripture used in the Bible that everything is mathematically perfect, it all adds up and can be multiplied and divided etc to still show God.

Now at the trial of Jesus he was flogged 40 times less one or 39 times, (3×13) and this was done twice or 78 times (6×13).  Now 3= Divine perfection, Godhead, unity, marriage and is significant because it is a Prime Number.  13= rebellion, Corruption, Satan and Sin, and is also a prime Number.  6= man under the curse of sin.  So we get from this then that 39 stripes means divine perfection being oppressed by rebellion and sin; and 78 times we get man under the curse of rebellion and sin.

From this we get the Messiah ben Yoseph (Joseph) the suffering Messiah of Isaiah 53, being oppressed as the Human as well as the Divine (Garden of Gethsemane).  No matter which way we look at it we have a fantastic God and a wonderful completely perfect Saviour, who will so soon return as Messiah ben David to rule this lost planet now returned to the fold of God and the redeemed of the earth, his new wife.

Here is a short list of basic numbers and their meaning for your own further research.

No 1 Unity, Oneness, Sovereignty, Light or male

No 2 Witness, division/duality, difference or Female (Prime Number)

No 3 Divine Perfection, Godhead, Unity or marriage (Prime Number)

No 4 Earth, The World, creativity, material completeness

No 5 Grace of God, Heavenly Favour, Love  (Prime Number)

No 6 Man under the curse of Sin, Time

No 7 Spiritual Perfection, God’s Seal, Rest (Prime Number)

No 8   signifies Resurrection or a new Beginning Oft referred to Christ, the first begotten of the Dead

No 9 Signifies Finality, Judgement

No 10 Perfection of Order

No 11 Subversion, Disorder  (Prime Number)

No 12 Perfect Government,

No 888 Jesus our Messiah, Saviour

 

The Great week:

For those who are a bit Jewish in their research in the Old Testament may find this interesting.  Genesis 1:1 has only seven words in it.

In Genesis 1:1 the very first word Bereishit (Beginning) also has the meaning of, “in the Head,” or in the mind or in the imagination.
This I discovered from Hebrew writers and especially Eddie Chumney, it is very interesting.  Also note Psalm 90:4 “for a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.”  Here we have a special unique link of a day = 1000 years. In the New Testament the idea is repeated in 2 Peter 3:8 “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years , and a thousand years as one day.”

Now:

Genesis 1:1 in Hebrew is 7 words long “Bereishit b’rah elohim et hashamayim v’et ha’eretz”

Seven is “God’s Seal” the perfect number.

The first letter of the Hebrew alphabet “Alef” appears 6 times in a very improbable sequence.  Alef is the third letter in the first two words ( Bereishit b’rah), the first letter in the next two words (elohim et), second letter in the last two words (v’et ha’eretz).

Alef represents wisdom and the Bible wisdom is linked to the keeping of the Torah

Deut 4:1, 4:5-8

Alef as the third letter in the first two words ( Bereishit b’rah) Represents the first 2000 years of this earth from Adam to Abraham and referred to as the “Tohu”.  This first period of time known as Tohu when there was the least amount of knowledge of the Torah/Word of God among earth’s people.

 

Alef as the first letter in the next two words (elohim et) represents the next 2000 years from Abraham to Messiah ben Joseph (the suffering Messiah).  It is also interesting to note that et is the first and last letter of the Hebrew alphabet, in Greek we know it as the Alpha and Omega, (Rev 1:5, 7-8 and Zech 12:10), the beginning and the end, or the Messiah Jesus Christ and elohim is God so we have a God-God statement ) This period is known as the Torah when the word of God is known and the Bible is started to be written down and distributed.  In Hebrew as well as in English a doubling of a statement (elohim et), like very very hot, means for the reader to take very serious note.

Alef as the second letter in the last two words (v’et ha’eretz) represents the last 2000 years spanning from the Suffering Messiah, Messiah ben Joseph to King Messiah, Messiah ben David. These are known as the days of the Messiah as during this time there would be much religious/Secular debate as to whether or not we should follow the Torah/Word of God.

The hashamayim is the greatest 1000-year period of the 7000 years will be during the days of the Messianic Age (Athid Lavo).  This follows the 6000-years known as the Olam Hazeh (the present world/age) and is also a Type/Fulfillment of Jubilee.  Yom Kippur tells us that the Scape Goat bearing the years sins of Israel has a wilderness experience that leads to its death (wages of Sin) so the redeemed cannot be on planet earth as the earth has to be uninhabited.  The Marriage of the Lamb cannot be on planet earth as it is at the Fathers house and that is Heaven.  Jubilee is at our home restored to us to live in forever and that is Jerusalem and that is in heaven also

 

When one has a marriage the Bride and Groom spend a week under the chupah or canopy and this is connected to the cloud and pillar of cloud at Sinai, (which is connected to being Jesus Christ the Messiah) and the wanderings and clouds of Angels.  It is interesting to note that it takes 7 days for the redeemed to travel to heaven. Revelation 19:9 “And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed [are] they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, these are the true sayings of God.”  Remember that at the coronation of the King, Messiah ben David, all of us redeemed have to come and be presented before the new Monarch, we swear allegiance  and are then allocated our job/function/role or future employment for all eternity.

 

So the Redeemed marry Messiah ben David (King Messiah) have a wedding supper in Heaven with God the Father and representatives of the unfallen worlds who welcome the lost planet back, welcome the redeemed back, who are then introduced to the Bride of Christ.  Cities of Refuge tell us that we are to remain in the city as the accuser of the brethren is still out there so we remain inside where it is safe.  Jubilee tells us that we have only one thing to do and that is to Party, Party, and Party.  We get to know all our lost relatives and form family community bonds and come out from Jubilee as a unified family nation.

 

From here it is simple; New Jerusalem comes down to settle in Israel.  Lost are raised to discover that there is a God and awake to their corrupt and lost state and are given their wages “Death.”  The earth is purified, we go back to the beginning and Jesus creates a new Heavens and a New Earth wherein dwelleth righteousness and we go back to the eternal Olam Haba of eternity perfect and in total harmony with our Heavenly Father.

 

Further to this there is another interesting dimension to this all if you look at Revelation 3:14 “and unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;”  Here we find an interesting clause “the beginning of the creation of God”.  Now on its own it has no impact, but now read the very first four words Moses ever wrote in Genesis 1:1 “Bereishit b’rah elohim et”.  Now to clarify the last word we find it is made up of only two letters Alef and Tav the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet or in Greek it becomes Alpha and Omega which is assigned to, or referred to Jesus Christ, the Messiah.

 

Putting the four words back together we get; “Beginning Created God Jesus” which is an exact match to the reference in Rev 3:14.  Ain’t the scriptures fantastically interlinked?

 

If we shrink this to just three words and translate Bereishit its other way as “In the Head” we have in English, “In the mind God visualized his about to be created.

 

Shrink it down to two words and we have “Creation visualized.”

 

And shrink it to one word and we have, “In the mind of God”

 

Just to add to that , the last four words in the Bible, just before John puts his P.S. blessing are “Even so, come, Lord-Jesus” Rev 22:20.  Scripture starts and finishes with the Messiah or et or Alpha and Omega.
