Ode of Solomon 7: the Lord 4 He hath caused me to know Himself, without grudging, by His simplicity: His kindness has humbled His greatness. 5 He became like me, in order that I might receive Him: He was reckoned like myself in order that I might put Him on; 7 And I trembled not when I saw Him: because He was gracious to me: 8 Like my nature He became that I might learn Him and like my form, that I might not turn back from Him: 9 The Father of knowledge is the word of knowledge: 10 He who created wisdom is wiser than His works: 11 And He who created me when yet I was not knew what I should do when I came into being: 12 Wherefore He pitied me in His abundant grace: and granted me to ask from Him and to receive from His sacrifice: 13 Because He it is that is incorrupt, the fulness of the ages and the Father of them 14 He hath given Him to be seen of them that are His, in order that they may recognize Him that made them: and that they might not suppose that they came of themselves: 15 For knowledge He hath appointed as its way, hath widened it and extended it; and brought to all perfection; 16 And set over it the traces of His light, and I walked therein from the beginning even to the end. 17 For by Him it was wrought, and He was resting in the Son, and for its salvation He will take hold of everything.
"But when human nature is taken up, and the race comes to me and obeys my voice, then he who now hears me shall be united with this race and shall no longer be what he now is, but shall be above them as I am now. For so long as you do not call yourself mine, I am not what I am; but if you hear me, you also as a hearer shall be as I am, and I shall be what I was WHEN YOU ARE AS I AM WITH MYSELF; for from me YOU ARE WHAT I AM," Acts of John 100, New Testament Apocrypha, Volume II, by Hennecke-Schneemelcher.
"And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so ... in blessing I will bless thee and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the (1) stars of heaven and (2) as the sand which s upon the seashore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies," Genesis 1:14,15, 22:17.
What is time? Time is the motion of the sun, moon, and stars in relationship to one another. God Himself is the Great Light which the earthly sun symbolizes. Mother Wisdom is symbolized by the moon, and the stars are human beings. And in that regard, the figure of a man is shaped like the familiar 5-pointed star. Our numbers and our "work" constitute "days, seasons, and years". In our world men use clocks, watches, sun dials, and hourglasses to mark "TIME". Spiritually speaking each son and daughter (sun/moon) pair as one day of spiritual "TIME" is the equivalent of 1000 earthly years. No man has made it alive down here for a full "day". Adam and Methuselah came closest, but their time was cut short because of the introduction of "sin". One looks at a "watch" in order to tell the time. Heavenly "Watchers" look at men below to observe our motions (works). In the "GOOD NEWS" we have learned that men are "stage-actors" (stars) below whose real life incidents are psychodramas, "food for thought" for the new student audience above in their perfection classes. Men in their real-life roles are guinea pigs who provide both good and bad lessons for God's upper students. Because all men are "watched" by the Heavenly Hosts, we are all "human watches" designating time. Watches "tick" and so do fleshy watches. Our hearts beat daily as time goes by. When our hearts stop beating, the watch stops and time is up. An hourglass is filled with sand which trickles downward as the hour passes. When all the sand is in the lower part of the glass, one hour has expired. Man's body is the "sands of time". When a certain number of human bodies have been lowered in their graves, one spiritual hour has passed. And in regard to this time analogy, when Jesus warned us in parable "not to build a house on sinking sand", he was teaching us not to build our doctrines and place our confidence in the teachings, traditions, and opinions of men, because man's mind and thinking is also under the influence and regulation of devils, Proverbs 16:25; Daniel 7:4; Revelation 13:4-7. Deserts are full of sand, and hot, dry deserts support very little life. Sand also serves as barriers on banks of large rivers, and shores and beaches of large bodies of water. So sand can and does block water, and water is also an analogy for the WORD of God! "Sinking sand" can be a problem for the "would-be" student seeking to learn of God, and "quicksand" can kill a man.
Since man is really spiritual time, we can look at time from two perspectives, (1) chronological time and (2) the revolution and movement of children, God's stars, from the firstborn son to the last day son, the last child created in the FAMILY. Chronologically this exercise is to last 6000 years or 6 days on a Heavenly time scale. The 7th day or the next 1000 years is a Heavenly Rest day. The end of the world is to happen at the end of the 6 thousandth year and the beginning of the 7 thousandth day. According to some, this millennium, the year 2000, marks that point in time. You will note that some say the priest who did the calculation by which Julian time is based made a calculation error. We are 6 years behind true time and this is really the year 2004 A.D. Spiritual time parallels chronological time with a difference. Now factor into this equation the fact that we are in a "time-space continuum". Everything with God is one everlasting day and we have been "sent backward" in time from Heaven (today) for the exercise on earth. When men die they are drawn forward in time back to Heaven and "today". TIME is "relative" to God. No man knows the day, hour, or year when He will consummate everything we know down here!
We are time. There is the firstborn son in the FAMILY and the lastborn son and all those myriads of children between them. Most of the children have made the circuit. They have been sent down to the earth and rolled back to heaven again. Men on earth today are part of the last generation of time. There are a few babies remaining in God's nursery who must be placed in wombs on earth. Time will continue both spiritually and chronologically until the last infant is sent down! The actual last day son, the last son created by the Father, was sent down earlier. Since God withdraws each child in the exact birth order in which He created them, our rising is always "on time" by our birth number. Since babies, teens, old men and women and young men and women die in every age bracket, we discover that our planting in the earth is random as a "span of time". In this way "no one knows the day nor the hour when the son of man returns to Heaven". No one knows who the lastborn son is except God! The lastborn son did not know he was such until God informed him. This man will be the last person to leave the earth. As such he has to be a priest carrying the Arch. The passage of Israel through the Red Sea and crossing the Jordan is an analogy of the trek of humanity from this earth-prison of devils into Heaven. The priests carrying the Ark were always last to cross over. The last son carries the Archangels as a crown of teachers and leaders, and he necessarily has to be a priest to fit in God's pattern and this role. The END concludes warfare with the Dragon and the powers of darkness, Jeremiah 50:43-46; Ezekiel 32:7-10, 35:2-14; Revelation 6:12-17. The last day is notably the "judgment day". And this last son is a warrior-priest according to pattern and a designated judge appointed by the Father to announce final judgment of all things, 2 Esdras 7:33-43 . This is God's PLAN for this son. He was born into this role. He cannot escape his destiny of dealing directly with devils. He has to judge them. Neither can he avoid his duties as a priest to carry and reveal all things. As a judge, he is a black-sun according to prophecy of the last day. His name is John and he comes to you in the "GOOD NEWS". When John rises, it will be the absolute end of time for this world and for devils. God will set this world afire and destroy the kingdom of devils. Therefore another identifying name for the last son is the "son of consummation". Enoch wrote of the aftermath:
Secrets of Enoch 65 1 'Hear, my children, before that all creatures were created, the Lord created the visible and invisible things. 2 And as much time as there was and went past, understand that after all that he created man in the likeness of his own form, and put into him eyes to see, and ears to hear, and heart to reflect, and intellect wherewith to deliberate. 3 And the Lord saw all man's works, and created all his creatures, and divided time, from time he fixed the years, and from the years he appointed the months, and from the months he appointed the days, and of days he appointed seven. 4 And in those he appointed the hours, measured them out exactly, that man might reflect on time and count years, months, and hours, their alternation, beginning, and end, and that he might count his own life, from the beginning until death, and reflect on his sin and write his work bad and 5 good; because no work is hidden before the Lord, that every man might know his works and never transgress all his commandments, and keep my handwriting from generation to generation. 6 When all creation visible and invisible, as the Lord created it, shall end, then every man goes 7 to the great judgement, and then all time shall perish, and the years, and thence forward there will be neither months nor days nor hours, they will be stuck together and will not be counted. 8 There will be one aeon, and all the righteous who shall escape the Lord's great judgement, shall be collected in the great aeon, for the righteous the great aeon will begin, and they will 9 live eternally, and then too there will be amongst them neither labour, nor sickness, nor humiliation, nor anxiety, nor need, nor violence, nor night, nor darkness, but great light. 10 And they shall have a great indestructible wall, and a paradise bright and incorruptible, for all corruptible things shall pass away, and there will be eternal life.
This is God's work and He has selected to use His last born son as a microphone. This has to do with the priesthood. The preachers are like Dathan, Korah, and Abiram who challenged Moses. Female "preachers" could be like Miriam who also challenged Moses. Just as Elijah slew all false prophets, God, ELI - JAH, has cut the preachers down to size in The FINAL Act, Thy Judgments Are Made Manifest, and The Judas Spirit Today! This exposes them as what they are, greedy wolves and mammon-grubbing "hirelings of men", who oppose the real truth, because it renders them useless and threatens their source of income.
We have been given our perspectives only "now" with time coming to an end. The completion of time has significance with respect to where we are, i.e. we are looking at things from "an end perspective". Why was Gabriel telling Daniel that things have been sealed up until the end of time? The end of time coincides with the perfection of our knowledge. We are reaping conclusions (in time, in knowledge). At the end of all things, we can finally see that God's work is perfect because He "saves" everything that must be "saved" and unloads everything that is no longer needed. His work can now be seen as "perfect", because He will accomplish everything He set out to do without losing anything in the process. "None of them is lost but the son of perdition that the scripture might be fulfilled", John 17:12. "And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day", John 6:39. And now you know who the last day is, a man, God's lastborn son and His priest for the end of time! His name is "John".
"(7) He will acquire counsel and prudence, (8) [and] he will know the Secrets of mankind. His Understanding will spread to all peoples, and he will know the Secrets of all living things. (9) All their plans against him will be fruitless, and the spiritual legacy for all the living will be enriched. (10) [And all] his plans [will succeed], because he is the Elect of God." - from The Birth of Noah (Fragment 3, Column 1) Dead Sea Scrolls
Our Encyclopaedia site (All Men Are Saved) shows the stages of time we go through in Our Earth-Stay is Our First Step to Eternity and All Men Rise to Heaven Immediately at Death.
The framework of space and time as it relates to our sojourn is outlined at the Alpha and Omega site's Dimensions of Time and Space section. The Circuit shows the journey all men take as they make their way home. God, Relativity and the Space-Time Continuum explores the relationship of God's Day to our sense of time. How God counts time is revealed in Man Is Time.
At the conclusion of time stands the revealed conclusion to our identity as our own Omega Point (Alpha and Omega site).
