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 called God, the
One, the Oneness, the Creator, called the Father-Creator, the
Spirit that is personified
as an individual human being.
17:24,25 "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."
There are many
original words translated 'God' which describe God's character. One
main word God, 'Elohim',
is a plural word, meaning more than one. And, there was. There first was
the Infinite Intelligent Energy, whom we properly call God and the
family of spirit beings.
Before there was man, there
was and still is, only one being of supreme
power. This was and is the Infinite Intelligent Energy by whose intelligent
energy all exists, absolutely everything, everything we know of and all
we don't yet know of. The angels
also came out of this energy. This is God and designated by the word
'God' having a capital 'G'. What's God
But there is another 'god',
not a good one, this one designated with a small 'g'. Like all that comes
out of this intelligent energy it is created good and
we were too. So, what happened that there came to be a bad one?
There was the creation of
high ranking angels. One of these three, named Lucifer
was also good, for
awhile. But, like Lucifer and Adam, we

2:16,17; Deuteronomy 30:19).and
chose the wrong way, the way of selfishness, the way of the lower
This then was the 'wrong
way' and so this thing became known as evil. Because the angels also have
certain creative abilities, such as in these
examples, they came to know evil by thinking opposites to what they
knew and observed. Their minds function as human minds also do.
'g'), often called angels,
were created to assist mankind in his journey to
be equal with the Father,
the One who became the Christ
of these created gods didn't like the idea that they were to assist
those lower than them to become greater than them. They were conned
by the master duper. These
were the bad gods and are of what we call the dark side, the Devil
6:3; 2Peter 2:4; Jude
14:12-15 "How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How are you cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations! For you
have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne
above the stars of God. I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation,
in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds.
I will be like the most High. Yet you shall be brought down to hell.(where's
hell?), to the sides of the pit."

people today. Why would that be an

are influenced to one degree or the other, depending upon the quality of
upbringing by 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
Today we are learning from
in life. We came here with the capacity to know good and evil:.Genesis
We see in the creation that
there is good and there is evil, the evil coming from choices out of our
obviously limited knowledge of right and wrong. Our choices come from our
programming, begun in the
early stages of life and information coming to us from what's called
the Akashic Record.
The good God responds to
of love toward ourselves and others. Why? Because
we are expressions of God when in high consciousness, otherwise,
God is there, but submerged by one's ego,
which is then and because of that, subject to the influence of another
4:4; Galatians 1:4; Ephesians
2:2; James 1:27.
It's the old track thing;
get off it and the tide turns against you, so that you can get back on
it. The ancients just couldn't do it on their own:.Deuteronomy
5:29. And so they were constantly
on and off the track. They were like many people today who need someone
over them to help them stay on track:.Judges
Bible has much
in it about choices with urgings to make the one that's best for yourself
11:26-28; 30:19; Jeremiah
The good 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 that they will eventually come
see God as real and go from there towards spiritual growth, the reason
we are here.
The good great being is referred
to in Old
Testament times in some places in the Bible as 'Yah Vah', meaning
'the existing one'. In these places, it's always in a good way.
The bad god is often referred
to as Satan in the Old and in the New Testament and as the Devil in the
New Testament. The word Satan in the original means 'adversary' and the
word Devil means 'accuse', 'throw over', finding something that can be
used against you to get and keep you off track.
But this name 'Yah Vah'
was a modification.deemed.necessary
by whoever wrote down in the Bible the ancient Sumerian
stories that were before repeated verbally, understanding that there were
two sides in the creation of the universe, the good Gods and the
bad gods. The bad gods were all the angels created by the real
Father of everything. They were created
good but then turned. And so we have
mankind with his two natures
because of having the knowledge of good and evil:.Genesis
2:16,17; Joshua 24:15.
And where did we come from?.Genesis
These ancient stories were
written down much later after the Sumerians were gone. They were written
down by Hebrews
once Hebrew became a written language. And this was about a thousand years
later in B.C.E. the 6th century,
that the Hebrews called the good God 'Yah Vah' in a few places in the Old
Testament where the word 'lord' in capital letters is used, as this, 'LORD'.
The Hebrews at the time did
this in order
the good God from the bad one and to show that by giving God
different names, it would reveal more of what God was like.
between things can easily be understood from reading the context.
Other words translated 'God'
in the Old Testament are spin offs of the main word 'Elohim', not 'Yah
Vah'. These mostly referred to the good Gods, all those existing because
of the Infinite Intelligent Energy.
This main original word,
'Elohim', means 'more than one', as it is a plural
word, meaning 'powerful ones'. Hence
we have the family
of God beings.
In Sumeria there was no word
for 'God' as has been so far deciphered
from the tablets. The Sumerians simply called these 'powerful ones', meaning
'sky people' or 'sky beings', because they saw from where they came out
of, the sky.
Before this time of writing
down, stories were written by the Sumerians
which was this ancient language of the Sumerians. And that language was
written on tablets using hieroglyphics
Apart from Sumerians, no
one back then understood what the tablets were saying long after the Sumerians
were gone, so stories of what they knew were handed down verbally from
generation to generation, until the Hebrew/Aramaic language was able to
be written. And so, these verbally handed down stories were written in
the Bible that we still have today.
The key to understanding
the Sumerian tablets was not discovered until the 1800's A.D.
about 220 years ago and then it took a while to correctly figure out what
the tablets were saying. See the YouTube video.Why
Are We Here.by
Paul Wallis, an indepth researcher on the subject. Or, go to his website.the5thkind.com
It took till 1930 to get
a handle on what it was these tablets were saying. Today, they are still
sifting through the meanings on all the tablets found in Mesopotamia,
of which there are over 230,000 of them.
The Bible was written
in order to distinguish the God of great power and all we see and know
of and who appeared to mankind after its creation, as coming 'from the
sky' in visiting Earth. Though God is everywhere and everything, angels
are often designated to deal with man as
if they were God, the Intelligent Invisible Energy out of which man,
the entire creation and the angels came out of.
The Gods are mentioned in.Genesis
1:26 and in Revelation 4:10.
The intelligent energy is spirit:.Genesis
It was all written so that
later, interested people when reading the.Bible
could better relate
to this great invisible good being, this seemingly.elusive
and invisible good being that is able to unfold
as us the more we get into and remain in the
of this intelligence we call God, the God of love:.1John
There is no contest
between the good God and the bad one, the one of the dark side, since Emmanuel
came and died in what is known as the Crucifixion
and was then resurrected becoming the Christ,
supreme over all. Question: If man was already saved, why did Emmanuel
come and die?.2Timothy
good God became after having the physical/spiritual experience through
this physical human called Emmanuel,
was more than what this good God was before that experience, because God
learns too. This scripture shows what God was before the experience
10:17 "For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, a great
God, a mighty and a terrible.(original
implies, 'awesome in strength and power', 'fearful', 'causing great astonishment'),
which regards not persons,
nor takes rewards.(bribes)."
What we call God, is the
Infinite Intelligent Energy 'beyond all things':.Hebrews
4:14; 7:26; 8:1;
113:4. God has many names
which describe what He is like.
This good God relates to
us in this New
as a man:.1Timothy
2:5 "For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the
man Christ Emmanuel.(*)."
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."
has been defeated. The golden age of peace is impending
where goodness for all awaits:.Romans
8:22. What's it waiting
There is the good God and
there is a dark side god as well. Keep in
mind when you read a scripture about God; is it the good one or the bad
one being talked about.
The intelligence we call
Silence, is 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', meaning
Invisible Intelligent Energy from which all comes. It just always was.
This is something that for us who see beginnings and endings, is impossible
How could something exist that had no beginning?.Hebrews
So, in truth, all
begins with God, this God who never began and who never ends, this
God who has always been and always will be. God is life and there couldn't
be just nothing before life, for from life comes living things. 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. What
about the so-called Big Bang starting the universe?
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." 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..."
When we describe the good
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 6:23
"...the gift of God is eternal life through Emmanuel Christ our Lord.".To
give eternal life one has to first have it.
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
From this invisible realm
where resides the
family of the Creator, there is care coming to us.(John

the care is through others who are also of the same higher consciousness
as those in the invisible good God family. Because the Creator works spiritually.(He
also works physically when and where needed to).through
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.

did He give us this One who became the

may be looking at and the Creator of the
frequencies behind it all, even making possible what we know as thought,

heaven of heavens cannot contain God. How much less this house that I have

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." John
17:5 "And now, O Father, glorify me with your own self, with the glory
which I had with you before the world was."
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
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 God in all your ways.(2Peter
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 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 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
21:32), Because he has appointed
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, for God is love? The name
love has many
God or the Creator, is 'where'.(the
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 think, would be hard to comprehend
for others. This 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', those having the power
pf creation. Where did they come from? How did they get the power to do
Elohim is 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
We'll make man in our image, after our likeness..."
The word 'God' meaning the
realm of power those in this realm possess, those who are the 'Elohim',
the original word used for God, which means 'more than one' and means 'powers',
that is, 'powerful beings'.
The word 'God' designates
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. No matter who you are or what you may have done, this power of
love revitalizes you. It's love that makes one equal
in the family.
The contest is, in this family
there is also a not so good God, a god who doesn't take pleasure in growing
this family of love:.Psalms
149:4. This bad
god was also involved shortly after man's creation.
Those on the good side are
growing in love and their numbers are increasing as more
and more people are being resurrected. Throughout all times on Earth
those of higher consciousness are dwelling, as they grow in spirituality,
in this good family called God:.Psalms
90:1 "Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations."
And, of course, on the other
side, the side of evil has also been growing. It provides the
pressure cooker of life. Like the energy of a battery, it won't work
unless it has both a negative and a positive terminal:.1Peter
1:7; Revelation 3:18. The
greater the negatives, the more determined positive thoughts must be. How
does this work?
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
are important to him, just like you take seriously the words of one
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 you. Holy Father, keep through your own name those whom you
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.
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:.1John
4:16. 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 grows 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,
12:11-22), 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 all of God's power and character abilities
that are good, emanating.throughout
and sustaining the universe and
flowing into those who become spiritual
persons of love and then out of them in good works in blessing

Testament, the Hebrew
is translated 'Jehovah' only in.Exodus
6:3; Psalms 83:18; Isaiah
gospel is about the
grace of God:.Acts
20:24; 20:32. The word 'gospel'
means 'good news'. The good news of what?.Colossians
1:27 "...Christ in you, the hope of glory.".And
this Christ in you is the power of what's called the gospel:.Romans
1:16,17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ.(the
gospel of Christ, the gospel of the kingdom and the four other names various
speakers used, all described the same gospel, but from different angles;
click on verse 16,17 at the link),
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
The gospel, which is the
news of the
way of the Great Infinite One, a way He wants us to know because it
is the key to getting
more of the power of this invisible
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.
The gospel of Emmanuel the
Christ, began in about 63 A.D.
as Mark records:.Mark
1:1,8. The gospel is what makes
one real, that is, takes him out of the affectedness.evidenced
by low consciousness in such a way as one appears or is intuitively.sensed
by others as being a phony.jerk:.Jeremiah
said that his ministry was to reach others with the true gospel; the message
that was built on grace. This was
the message of the Kingdom of God:.Acts
The gospel is the message
us. It is a gospel or the good news that we
are at peace with God, a message of good things:.Romans
Ephesians 6:15; a message
from and about
a good God.
always been about God blessing us:.Galatians
3:8. Life is never easy,
