Today generally the term 'Gentile'
those of any non Jewish physical nation, whereas in the Old
Testament it applied to every nation except
Today also, the Gentiles, spiritually speaking, would be those not in Christ,
that is, those who don't believe in God and spiritual things.
In the New
Testament the focus now is on the spiritual:.Galatians
3:28. And why?.Ephesians
And we all
came from one blood:.Acts
The Gentiles in Old Testament
times were also known as 'the uncircumcised' to ancient
Ancient Israel had 12
tribes. Two of them, the tribes of Judah
became known as the 'Jews'. The 10 tribes resided in the northern part
of the country and the 2 tribes, Judah and Benjamin, along with Simeon,
resided in the southern part.
- the Great Infinite Intelligence, the
Creative Power, the
One, the Oneness, the Creator, called the Father-Creator, the
Spirit that is personified
as an individual human being. There are many
original words translated 'God' which describe God's character.
God responds to our dedication
of love toward ourselves and others. Why? Because
God is you, that is, an expression of you, when you are in high consciousness,
otherwise, God is there, but allowed to be submerged by you ego. God never
forces anyone to awaken to His presence.
But, God can and does allow the 'reap
what you have sown' law of the universe to have effect in one's life,
so that he or she will question as
to why these things are going on, so they will eventually come to
see God as real and go from there towards spiritual growth, the reason
we are here.
We often refer
to this great being as God,
whose correct name in Old
Testament times was heard to be Yah Vah; this personification
seemed necessary to those way back when, so that later, interested people
when reading the.Bible
could better relate
to this great invisible being, this seemingly.elusive
and invisible Being that is able to unfold
as us the more we get into and remain in the
of the intelligence we call love.(1John
4:8,16), the intelligence we call
Silence, the Silence that is high
'Before God' is not a phrase
from which a question can be formed that could be answered accurately
and with truth. An answer would
involve information in accordance
showing the laws of the universe with meaning
and this cannot be done. There is no such thing as before God. This is
something that for us who see beginnings and endings, is impossible to
So, in truth, all
begins with God who has always been and always will be. God is life
and there couldn't be just nothing before life. For there to be nothing,
there would have been something and the something that is God is eternal,
so there was never this thing called nothing. God just is and that's both
the beginning and end of any attempt to question it:.Revelation
1:8 "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, says the Lord,
which is and which was and which is to come, the Almighty."
When we describe God we define
Him as being invisible.(Colossians
1:15; 1Timothy 1:17; 2Corinthians
4:18), eternal and love:.Deuteronomy
33:27 "The eternal God is your refuge and underneath are the everlasting
arms..." John 17:3 "And this is life
eternal, that they might know you the only true God and Emmanuel Christ,
whom you have sent." Romans 1:20
"For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly
seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power
and Godhead..." Romans 6:23 "...the
gift of God is eternal life through Emmanuel Christ our Lord.".To
give eternal life one has to first have it.
Because what we call God,
is 'beyond all things':.Hebrews
4:14; 7:26; 8:1;
113:4. God relates to us in this New Testament era
as a man:.1Timothy
2:5 "For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the
man Christ Emmanuel." Hebrews 2:10
"For it became him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things,
in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation
perfect through sufferings."
Probably, for most back then
and even today.(1Corinthians
2:14), this would have been beyond
one's ability to relate to, that is, until one begins on the
gods, often called angels,
were created to assist mankind in his journey to be equal with the Father,
the One who became the Christ was. But, some of these created gods
didn't like the idea that they were to assist those lower than them to
become greater than them:.Psalms
They, in effect, became antiGod,
against the Creator-Father's purpose. Thus they became what we call the
dark side or demons. And, so there are those
who are influenced to one degree or the other, depending upon the quality
of their parents and what training was received from them. We are all to
come out of the evil in our living. We're here to fix things.
From this invisible realm
where resides the
family of the Creator, there is care coming to us.(John
this world, however,
the care is through others who are also of the same higher consciousness
as those in the invisible God family. Because the Creator works spiritually.(He
also works physically when and where needed to).through
human beings, God can express
no greater care for the world than He does through us individually transmitting
His high consciousness mind by actions motivated
by love; example.
John 3:16 says that."...He
gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him...".Why
did He give us this One who became the
Christ? One reason was
so that we would have an example of a higher consciousness living. Other
10:10 "But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God and an everlasting
God or the Creator is the
invisible of everything.(*).you
may be looking at and the Creator of the frequencies behind it all, even
making possible what we know as thought:.1Kings
8:27 "But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and
heaven of heavens cannot contain God. How much less this house that I have
dwell on the Earth. In the Old Testament His sanctuary was in
the tabernacle. And now dwells in
those of high consciousness. And will again dwell on the Earth:.Revelation
The Creator is the formulator
of the intelligent energy which we know as the One called Emmanuel.
Him while in the physical and after He was gone back into the invisible:.John
20:17 "Emmanuel said unto her, Touch me not, for I am not yet ascended
to my Father, but go to my brethren and say unto them, I ascend unto my
Father and your Father and to my God and your God.".Into
the invisible He went until He physically shows up again:.Isaiah
26:19 "Your dead
men shall live, together with my dead body shall
they arise. Awake and sing, you that dwell in dust, for your dew is
as the dew of herbs and the earth shall cast out the dead."
Apart from that being in
the realm of the
Creator, we are simply on a dying road as we age toward the end of our
time here. But, we are offered so much more:.1Corinthians
2:9 "But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither
have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for
them that love him.".If
you love your Creator, you'll come to know those things. Love opens the
two way street with Him. And, as you become more like the Creator in all
too will be able to do the things Christ, who still being in the physical
form of the One we call Emmanuel and His disciples were able to do:.Matthew
God or more correctly, the
Creator, is all; all we see and all we know of. This Intelligent Energy
is everything visible and invisible. But what
comprises Him? What's
He look like? Who
is with Him in the invisible?
The Creator is everything.
He is the geometry of the universe, being the breadth, length, depth and
height, all we see and know of:.Ephesians
Using the name God hardly
differentiates from it being another 'god' of the many gods ignorantly
worshipped down through history:.Acts
17:22-33 "Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill and said, You
men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are too superstitious.
For as I passed by and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this
inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore you ignorantly worship,
him declare I unto you. God that made the world and all things therein,
seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwells not in temples made
with hands; Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed
any thing, seeing he gives to all life and breath and all things; And has
made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the
earth and has determined the times before appointed and the bounds of their
habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after
him and find him, though he be not far from every one of us. For in him
we live and move and have our being as certain also of your own poets have
said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring
of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver,
or stone, graven by art and man's device. And the times of this ignorance
God winked at, but now commands all men every where to
repent, Because he has appointed a day, in the which he will judge
the world in righteousness by that man whom he has ordained, whereof
he has given assurance unto all men, in that he has raised him from the
dead. And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked
and others said, We will hear you again of this matter. So Paul
departed from among them."
We use many
names to describe God, but we never seem to use the name of what God
is; God is love.."Are
you looking for me? I am closer than hands or feet. Are you looking for
me? I am the instant beyond time. Have you found me? If you really search
for me, I am the searcher. Are you thinking? I am the thinker. Are you
watching the flowers on a sunny afternoon? I am the watcher and I am the
flowers. Are you quiet in meditation? I am the silent presence."....Anonymous..Psalms
Why don't we call this infinite
one, this self supporting energy that is intelligent, this essence and
sustaining power of all that is, of all that has been and of all that ever
will be, why don't we use the name love for it? The name love has many

Creator is everything and everywhere).all
energy is stored before
coming into the physical.
The Creator is energy, intelligent
energy, love energy, eternal and has a shape:.Genesis
1:26; Revelation 1:8. Today
this is easier to comprehend,
but early on in mankind's time on Earth it would have been difficult to
this idea to others.
The way they talked back
then and how they recorded the truths they believed were correct, was the
best way they knew to get them across to others. They talked as if when
you do something, God then does something and this is true, but what they
missed or found hard to describe or thought would be hard to comprehend
for others was, what really the Creator is.
It probably would have been
hard to grasp then that the
Creator is intelligent energy and that the universe wouldn't exist
if the Creator didn't and that the Creator then, is really the entire thing.
It would have made no sense
to most way back when. Today in the age of energy and quantum mechanics
comprehension, it's a different story, as people have at least some familiarity
with those terms and can delve deeper into such understanding.
The Creator is the whole universe, a very
intelligent universe, where all is varying forms of frequency under the
all encompassing label of love. The whole universe is the Creator's
mind. There is nowhere to go to be away from God, except by one's own mind
construct. If we have the idea that we are separate, then we will live
our lives as so.
construct keeps him from his truth of being. You always have a path
to the soul through your spirit, but until you realize this, what good
is it to you? Emmanuel saw the same error in the religious people of His
day. He reminded them of who they were, but it didn't do any good, because
their minds were far away from the truth of what they actually were:.John
original, the word God is the plural word 'Elohim' and means 'strong
ones, divine ones'. It's a plural
word, so the first verse of Genesis
should have been translated to reflect this:."In
the beginning Gods.(or
the heaven and the earth..." Genesis 1:26."And
God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness..."
family, a family of higher
consciousness beings, for the Infinite Intelligence is a
family of love and to be in this family one needs to learn love,
needs to move beyond the ego level
of existence into higher consciousness so that power
from the invisible will flow through his soul revitalizing
his life. It's love that makes one equal
with the Creator. God takes great pleasure in His growing family:.Psalms
149:4. And, growing more so as more and
more are being resurrected.
3:14,15 "For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord
Emmanuel the Christ, of whom the
whole family in heaven and earth is named.".John
14:23 ".....If a man loves me he will keep.(original
Greek is 'guard from escape or loss').my

who may be dear to you).and
my Father will love him and we will come unto him and make our abode.(original
means also 'mansion'; meaning the Creator's nature will be in you).with
14:2 "In my Father's house.(Hebrews
means also 'abode' and 'dwelling', again meaning the Creator's nature will
be in you if you have decided to be a person of love, as the Great Infinite
One is a family, a family of loving beings).
If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to
prepare a place for you."
29:11,12 "Thine, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory
and the victory and the majesty. For all that is in the heaven and in the
earth is yours. Thine is the kingdom, O LORD and you are exalted as head
above all. Both riches and honour come of you and you reign over all and
in thine hand is power and might. In your hand it is to make great and
to give strength unto all.".So
then is missing, as so many of us lack riches and honor, are not great
and have little strength?
17:11 "And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world
and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom
thou have given me, that they may be one.(not
but one in the nature of love that is the Creator's main attribute),
as we are."
And just how
are we brought into this family?
The Creator is energy, conscious
are also conscious, aware of what is going on, able to make decisions and
the Creator, our energy flows in forming what is our decisions).energy.
This energy from which the universe and all is constantly forming, is always
in motion, moving into and out of form; stars become physical and eventually
'go back' into the invisible energy. This energy's overall guiding principle
is love, for the Creator is just that.(*).
Daily we are seeing the amazing invisible things of our Creator more clearly,
that is, if we are on the lookout for them.
The Creator is a family
of divine ones.(note
again that it is plural),
meaning those in a relationship within this
realm; the family having at this time Creator the Father and Creator
the Son and those born again as well as angelic
beings: and the newly resurrected ones:.Ephesians
2:19 "Now therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow
citizens with the saints and of the
household of God." 1Corinthians
12:12 "For as the body is one and has many members and all the members
of that one body being many are one body, so also is Christ.(1Corinthians
12:27; Ephesians 1:22,23;
3:14,15 "For this cause.(verse
bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ...Of whom
whole family in heaven and earth is named."
6:16 ".....you are the temple of the living God. As God has said, I
will dwell in them and walk in them and I will be their God and they shall
be my people."
3:16 "Know you not that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit
of God dwells in you?"
2:18-22 "For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the
Father. Now therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens
with the saints and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation
of the apostles and prophets, Emmanuel the Christ himself being the chief
corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto
an holy temple in the Lord; In whom you also are builded together for an
habitation of God through the Spirit.(just
is the soul, consciousness and the spirit).."
So today in the era
the New Testament, Christ is, or, Christ
is composed of, the many members of the
church; a realm
of higher consciousness,
different parts united so as to constitute
one whole. And there is more of what
Some people believe a third
member exists; that of the Holy Spirit. Others
believe this is the essence of the Father's power and character, emanating
from Him throughout, and sustaining
the universe and flowing into those who become spiritual

speakers used, all described the same gospel, but from different angles;

for it is the power of God into salvation to every one that believes...therein
is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith..."."The
true power of the gospel is manifested not by what it adds to one's life
but rather what it removes from one's soul which is guilt
and judgment. The removal of guilt and judgment,
by the power of the gospel, gives way to viewing others and ourselves the
way the Almighty sees us all. The gospel removes Christ from the realm
of fantasy, religion and myth as a biblical character to one of reality,
truth, knowing and a daily awareness of his completed work. The power of
the gospel is not intended to give one an accurate view and opinion of
God. It is intended to reveal God's accurate view and opinion of us. The
Gospel has no power to redeem. It is by definition, information, news—good
news—about the redemption that is fully completed for all with no need
of participation by human beings. The word 'salvation' is used in many
applications, however, Paul used it mostly to describe the effect the gospel,
the good news, the power of God, has on the mind or soul."....Michael

energy into our lives. This good news is all through this website:.example.
the Gospel raises a man above himself.(1Corinthians
1:27), away from self-righteousness
that the Pharisees of Emmanuel's time typified
and provides man strength and wisdom in the presence of the most
difficulties. The Gospel leaves off dealing with unrighteousness, because
all unrighteousness for all time for
all people was looked after by Emmanuel's life, death, burial and resurrection.
