“The two become one flesh” never meant marriage, but was a prophecy

12 The whole to myself is lawful, but the whole is not expedient. The whole to myself is lawful, but myself will not be mastered [ἐξουσιάζω – exercise authority over] by anyone.

13 The foods [are] for the belly, and the belly for the foods. But the Theos, and this one and these ones shall make of no effect; and the body is not to the whoredom, but the Master, and the Master to the body.

Chad = Oneness. The two become one. The Body on one edge, the Master on the opposing edge.

14 And the Theos and the Master has wakened up, and ourselves will raise out through the power of himself.

15 Have ye not known that the bodies of yourselves the members of the Christ, are? Having lifted up, then, the members of the Christ, should I make members of a Harlot? May it never become.

16 Or have ye not known that the one being glued to the Harlot is one body? ‘For they will be — he is saying — the two into one flesh.’

17 However the one being glued to Master, is one spirit [sword of the spirit].

18 Flee the whoredom; the whole sin — whom if a man may make— is without the body. However the one whoring, into the own body is sinning.

19 Or have ye not known that the body of yourselves is a temple of the Holy Spirit in yourselves, whom ye have from Theos? And ye are not of yourselves [reflexive genitive pronoun],

20 for ye were bought at a [bride] price; exalt, then, the Theos in the body of yourselves and in the spirit of yourselves, whoever are of the Theos.

1 Corinthians 6:12-20 literal

There are two Bodies with which one can become one flesh with—Christ’s Body of Death (eat my flesh, drink my blood), and Christ’s Body of Life (rib from his side). Christ’s Body of Life (kindness) is that “sister” on account of whom Christ bore (and bears) his guilt according to the Levitical Law:

And a man which is taking אֶת-his sister, a daughter of his father or a daughter of his mother, and he has seen [completed action] אֶתher nakedness and herself is seeing [incomplete action] אֶתhis nakedness, a kindness (hesed) is himself (הוא). And they [the spouses] have been cut off to the eyes of the sons of their people. He has exposed a nakedness of his sister. He is lifting his guilt.

Leviticus 20:17 literal

Recall that a “person’s nakedness” is not necessarily their own. But their spouse’s. In that sense, Christ, in fulfilling this law, is bearing not his own guilt but the guilt of the man the sister was bound to. Kindness!

You are not exposing the nakedness of thy father and the nakedness of thy mother, thy mother is himself (הוא).   You are not exposing her nakedness.

The nakedness of the woman of thy father you are not exposing.  The nakedness of thy father is himself (הוא).

Leviticus 18:7-8 literal

his nakedness” = the woman

her nakedness” = the man

When two are prophetically one, It turns the whole saying on its head—an obscure enigma. But this is the premise for Romans 7:2-3, 1 Cor. 7:39

Queen Esther vs. Queen Vashti

Is this story a macro end-time parable? Esther the Chosen Lady and Vashti is the one she replaces?

The story has been viewed as though the King and his guests were a bunch of drunken partyers and that he was some sort of misogynist. The irony is, the very attacking of his character and actions by women today would seem to prove the whole teaching of the parable. That women really have turned against the men.

Because they don’t care about finding truth and only pushing their agendas, they never stop to think or look more closely to see if it’s true what they preach and teach. The King was not drunk.

כְּטֹ֥וב לֵב־הַמֶּ֖לֶךְ בַּיָּ֑יִן

when good was the heart of the king in the wine….

Esther 1:10

The Hebrew word for merry happens to be good (Strong’s #2896). Yes, the same word used for:

it was very good. Genesis 1:31

the tree of the knowledge of good and evil Gen. 2:9

the gold of that land is good Gen. 2:12

It is not good for the man…  Gen. 2:18

we are not able to speak unto thee bad or good  Gen. 24:50

The King had seven eunuchs, seven princes, and ruled over 127 provinces which happens the be the “age” of Sarah at her “dying”. Is Vashti the Church that is sent away because she does the same exact thing? Esther is the maidservant that rises from lowest places, and saves the people.

Garments of Menstruation

כַטָּמֵא֙ כֻּלָּ֔נוּ וּכְבֶ֥גֶד עִדִּ֖ים כָּל־ צִדְקֹתֵ֑ינוּ

the whole of us are like the unclean, like garments of menstruation is the whole of our justice…

Isaiah 64:6 TNCLT (truthful, non-contrived, literal translation)

Since our righteousness [justice] has to do with faith, this is a call to repentance from our unbelieving hearts….and our faithless high-school crap-happy translations.

This lends to deep thought regarding the Church as a “faithless harlot bride”. What is the prophet saying through the nature of the monthly period? Anybody?

<dead silence overtakes the congregation>

Anyone?

2 Peter 3:12 Prophecy on the Heavens

waiting for and hasting to the presence of the day of God, by which the heavens, being on fire, shall be dissolved, and the elements with burning heat shall melt;

2 Peter 3:12 YLT

Many translations render this interpretively under the bizarre thought that the Heavens could be destroyed. Really? I’ve thought many a time, how in the world planets and stars might be “set on fire and destroyed” or “burn up and be dissolved”. Never figured it out. Then I read it for myself in the Greek. The YLT is the most faithful, recognizing the present participle of pyroumenoi, inflamed, glowing, purified, on fire. The Greek lythēsontai is not “dissolved”. It means loose, untie, unleash. Stoicheia means elementary principles, the basics, the A-B-Cs of the World. Everything everyone thought they knew about “God”….will melt (tēketai) like wax into liquid. The very “heart” of men will melt……

Therefore, all hands do fail, And every heart of man doth melt. Isa. 13:7 YLT

Toward the hearing, for she comes; and the whole heart has melted, and the whole hands has slackened, and the whole spirit has weakened, and the whole knees are walking waters. Behold, she comes, and SHE HAS BEEN BROUGHT ABOUT... Eze. 21:7 literal

The oracle concerning Egypt. Behold, Yahweh is riding on a swift cloud and is about to come to Egypt; The idols of Egypt will tremble at His presence, And the heart of the Egyptians will melt within them. Isa. 19:1

The right reading is this,

expecting and hastening the coming of the day of Theos, through which the heavens, inflamed, shall be unleashed, and the elementary principles will melt with burning heat.

The End of the Tongues Mystery

The working theory is that “tongues” involves a group effort to enclose secrets within the common man’s language (both Hebrew and Greek). This means if you didn’t know one (like Jesus) was “speaking in a tongue” you would mistake his sayings for something that seemed to apply to normal colloquialism, culture, or social constructs. When colloquialism, culture, or social constructs become the prevailing basis for the translation/interpretation process the tongue itself will inevitably be erased and no one will be able to even attempt to interpret it. Such a basis is a very sandy one anyway because who of us can really know what constituted cultural constructs and colloquialisms or not unless we were there?

I thank God, I speak more tongues than you all;

1 Cor. 14:18 YLT Literal

The literal rendering of the verse is I thank God, than all of you more tongues I speak. It wasn’t that Paul spoke in tongues more than everyone but that he spoke more tongues than everyone. The word “in” is not found in the Greek and is added by all the translations except Young’s Literal. The same applies to the other verses

and I wish you all to speak with tongues, and more that ye may prophesy, for greater is he who is prophesying than he who is speaking with tongues, except one may interpret, that the assembly may receive edification.

1 Cor. 14:5 YLT Literal

Paul spoke more tongues than anyone because he knew the Scriptures better than anyone.

The writers of the Bible have apparently combined many symbolic themes (tongues) into categorical ways of speaking about the same truths. Consider that speaking a parable is “speaking a tongue”.

Here are some lists of such “tongues” with some of the more obvious words. They are roughly categorized, not to be taken as precise. Some tongues appear to be more like sub-languages easily confused such as the Face and the Body. Most people who have spent time in the Church will recognize the symbolic nature of many of these words. But how to interpret?

There are many of these tongues. And obviously it requires work to figure them out. We don’t just start babbling like a maniac. Sit down and do your homework. Don’t be lazy, be importunate. The more we learn, the more ability we have to decipher the mysteries which often appear to make use of a combination of tongues:

We hanged our harps Upon the willows

Psalm 137:2

The pictures painted by the authors of the “poetic” scriptures are especially “nonsensical”. Who the hell hangs a harp in a tree? What? The Hebrews were clearly obsessed with speaking/writing enigmatically.

Try to count how many “tongues” are packed into just this one vision:

As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud, with brightness around it, and fire flashing forth continually, and in the midst of the fire, as it were gleaming metal. And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had a human likeness, but each had four faces, and each of them had four wings. Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the sole of a calf’s foot. And they sparkled like burnished bronze. Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands.

Ezekiel 1:4-8

Yikes!

Hades, Death, Abyss, Gehenna, Outer Darkness, Tartarus, Lake of Fire

At least seven different words, yet traditionally consolidated into one–hell.

The word “hell” was engineered in this way from the 8th century Anglo-Saxon pagan word that spoke of an abode or nether world of the dead. It was not the same as what it came to be defined as. The word is not ever used in the Bible. Instead what you will find behind the translation is a lot of different words.

There are few Biblical words that have been so stretched, morphed, engineered, and entirely screwed up as these. It was thought that people were too stupid to think for themselves and learn to differentiate between the meanings of seven different concepts and so learn wisdom. So they created Hell. “Their fear of me is a commandment of men” (Isaiah 29:13).

The great revelation of the Bible is one of justice. It is said when all is fulfilled in the Day of the Great Consummation, the Judgement, people will marvel. Heaven’s justice will be unbelievable, perfect, and marvelous because it is based on true equity or evenness. It levels the field, straightens the plumb line, and makes straight the way. All those robbed, oppressed, down-trodden, etc. are repaid.

…and the whole of the people him-who-hears [participle masculine singular], and the tax collectors, justified the God, they-who-have-been-submerged [participle masculine plural] by the submerging of John…

Luke 7:29 literal

(Notice how the text switches between a masculine singular participle and a masculine plural participle for “the people”.)

and himself is judging the world in justice, he is governing the peoples in equity [evenness, uprightness, equity #4339].

Psalm 9:8 literal

The world at last obtains true equity. If God meant to say “He will damn all the peoples to eternity in hell” he sure did miss the opportunity right then. Or maybe the Psalmist didn’t read the gospel tract quite right.

There is nothing about the modern concept of hell that evens out or makes anything level. Being conceptually lost in an abstract concept, it is impossible to see anything just about the current contrivance of hell. But we are forced to swallow it regardless and everyone is committed thereafter to ambuscade the hell out of their neighbors, seeking the most efficient, streamlined, mass-conversion methodology ratio and engineering possible.

Every penny is said to be repaid in the coming age (Matt. 5:26). How can anyone stuck in a torture chamber forever repay anyone anything? There is nothing marvelous about that. It is in fact an atrocious form of justice that no one wants to think about. Genocidal perpetrators who are forced to repay every single one of his victims down to the last penny taken, sounds more like a real display of justice and equity one could marvel at.

The Kingdom is inside “her”?

nor shall they say, Lo, here; or lo, there; for lo, the reign of God is inside you.’

Luke 17:21 YLT

Translators and scholars don’t want to hear what it really says. A better word could not be chosen to express inside. The Greek word is entos. And is also used by Jesus here, and mind you,

Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside [entos] of the cup, so that the outside of it may also become clean.

Matt. 23:26

The real question then is who? He spoke to them in the plural, you all. If we were to think of it as an enigma—them also being called “mother” by the same Jesus—we could entertain the idea of a womb………and Isaiah 66 would be much more interesting, where we read that Zion “gives birth” to a nation….

But why speak so darkly?

Paul, the hardest code to crack

for myself indeed, him-who-is-away-from the body, yet him-who-is-near the spirit, even now, as him-who-is-near, have judged the-one, thus working out this-one in the name of the Master of ourselves Jesus Christ — those-who-have-been-gathered of yourselves, and of myself of spirit — with the power of the Master of ourselves, Jesus, to hand over such a one the Satan into the ruin of the flesh, so that the spirit may be rescued in the day of the Master.

1 Corinthians 5:3-5 literal

Paul is a wildly controversial figure because of how he has been traditionally interpreted. He spent the entire previous chapter explaining how he was the refuse of all the earth. Garbage. Filth. Mistreated. Dishonored. Fool. Buffeted. Reviled. Persecuted.

Imagine a writing of your own being treated by the world like his? The horror.

As is evident from this verse, Paul seems to speak through time to the end times, judging a man “who has his father’s wife” that he be “delivered up” so that the flesh (which is against the spirit) may be destroyed and the spirit (which is Life) may be rescued. It sounds oddly similar to Jesus’ words about the end times in Mark 13:20

“And if Master had not mutilated those days, the whole flesh would not have been rescued; but on account of the chosen, whom He chose, He mutilated the days.”

Mark 13:20 literal

The enigmas just pile up in this book. There is nothing plain in this speech, and it is on purpose, whatever it means.

Many write of his words as “pertinent to the culture he was in”. But, consider, maybe it was the exact opposite? Being away from body, yet “as being near” the spirit. For a man who called himself a “steward of the mysteries of God” who apparently knew the mysteries of the Bible far beyond any of us, it becomes counter-intuitive to be dogmatic with regard to anything Paul says. Consider that Paul is not haphazardly writing his letters, but is carefully choosing each and every word, words which themselves may have far deeper meanings…

For if you may have ten thousand guardians [paidagógos, boy-tutors] in Christ, except not many fathers; for in Christ Jesus through the good news myself has begotten yourselves. 1 Cor. 4:15 literal

עֶ֫צֶם, Bone

Hebrew has a lot of figurative usage for different words. “Bone” happens to be one of those. It is pronounced, etsem. Look at these Proverbs:

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Prov. 16:24

The light of the eyes rejoices the heart, and good news refreshes the bones. Prov. 15:30

A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot. Prov. 14:30

Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. Prov. 3:7-8

Isaiah uses it here:

You shall see, and your heart shall rejoice; your bones shall flourish like the grass; and the hand of the LORD shall be known to his servants, and he shall show his indignation against his enemies. Isaiah 66:14

Zophar uses it:

His bones are full of his youthful vigor, but it will lie down with him in the dust.  Job 20:11

Elihu uses it:

Man is also chastened with pain on his bed, And with unceasing complaint in his bones; Job 33:19

It’s an interesting and unique thing to think of bones in the sense of “flourishing” , “healing”, and being full of “vigor”. What are they talking about exactly? Jobs words seems to give the best definition:

“And now my soul is poured out within me;
days of affliction have taken hold of me.
The night racks my bones,
and the pain that gnaws me takes no rest.
With great force my garment is disfigured;
it binds me about like the collar of my tunic.
God has cast me into the mire,
and I have become like dust and ashes. Job 30:17-19

The context of this is Job’s soul which is being poured out within him. It apparently relates to the substance of the soul. The figurative expression carries over into English. When we say something like, “there’s fire in my bones,” we speak about feeling within the deepest parts of our being.  Jeremiah says exactly this,

If I say, “I will not mention him, or speak any more in his name,” there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot. Jer. 20:9

Ezekiel’s Valley of Dry Bones is an entire word of the Lord based on…bones…

Then he said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Behold, they say, ‘Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are indeed cut off.’ Eze. 37:11

Looking at Prov. 14:30 again we see that the author was saying that a tranquil heart is good for the body while envy rots the soul. Envy doesn’t do anything to your real bones. So, the interpretation fits. With this in mind, what happens if we apply this to the poetry of Adam in Genesis 2:23?

Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”

What we find is that Adam wasn’t being redundant but instead saying that the woman was of the same substance as his flesh and the same substance as his soul. This yields insight, I believe, to the act of God “removing one of Adam’s ribs” as taking a piece of Adam’s own soul and generating it into a woman. This presents to us a deeper truth that Adam and Eve were not separate egalitarian creations like the animals but of one and the same substance in flesh and soul. And why would this not also carry over into marriage when the two souls unite to make one flesh? The whole picture is truly enigmatic and prophetic in every way.
