WOMEN OF THE BIBLE

 

After the study of the Old Book (1813)., the Swift Ministry, and the book …’Far Above Rubies’ by Isabel Hill Elder, I would like to bring to you my understanding as to the part played by outstanding women of the Kingdom.

Out of Eden went one river (Race of People) to enrich the Garden. This according to our understanding of Scripture was ONE Race headed by Adam and Eve. Without Eve of course there would have been no Adamic race which Moses was to record (Genesis 5:1) as the generations of this Adamic race, as he listed the fathers of this race who played a direct roll in this program of Almighty YAHWEH as He established His Kingdom in earth, and fulfilled the promises made to Adam…’Before the Foundation of the World.’

This establishment of a Kingdom in earth was projected as a family project. Going back through ole records we find that the Women of this Kingdom family had an independence surpassing even today. Many times we find these women entrusted with administration of her husbands property as well as her own. These Women of God’s Israel…retained this independence until the time of their captivity when they were then known as ‘children of Israel’ of the 12 tribes. Thus this Family was established as a partnership of two individuals, man and wife both of equal stature in the program of YAHWEH. With this in mind let us look at the records as to why some of these women of the Kingdom are also listed as special in this program.

In the Giza Museum near Cairo there is displayed a long line of these Aryan Monarchs carved in stone which shows what we have just told you. In the beginning of this line in the Monarch and his Queen sit side by side as equal in importance. Their poems and recorded history show the devotion of the Monarchs to their partners in marriage. Much further down the line you find the Queen sitting on a lower level than the Monarch, until finally she no longer is carved in stone, and only a portrait is sketched.

This gradual change was reflected in the history of the times, in every part of life as the ‘Golden Age’ ended and then as the Israelites emerged from captivity the Women of Israel were being treated with the same ideals as that portrayed by their captors. When YAHWEH as YAHSHUA walked the earth in Jerusalem we see that the Jews now in charge of that area were shocked that YAHSHUA TREATED THE WOMEN VERY DIFFERENTLY. After all…they said, ‘He talked to the women’. Thus gradually the status and dignity of the Women of Israel was now beginning to change and we see some of their ancient independence restored. After all, these Women of Israel were still to play a great part in this program of the Almighty, as the ‘Time Table’ now pointed to a time of fulfillment of Promises.

Early in this tape series we have given you a summary of these women closely connected to the time of ‘The Christ’ showing their connection to this race, and the part they played at the time when YAHSHUA was in earth, and then as The Apostles moved out to ‘Lost Israel’. At this time we would like to look backward in history and bring you more of the facts about these Women of the Kingdom which we had not discovered before. In this great time table of the Almighty, Daniel was told:..’For at that time, the appointed end (of that present situation) shall be’. Daniel 8:19.

Here we stand today in 1991, and as we look backward in ‘time’ we must realize the part these women of our race played as the Destiny of these United States was established and the country taken over and our civilization established.

The Old Book (1813) confirms that as our Adamic race grew in the Garden that finally 4 streams of this same river (race) went out of the Garden leading their people in migration down from the high country into Northern India, where they immediately built a great civilization. In fact the Scripture is very clear that Eve, after the womb was cleansed, thus after the seven gestations she had brought forth a son and she named him Seth, and this child was acceptable unto YAHWEH as one to increase the race, carrying this spirit which could transferred to offspring. Thus Eve was a very important lady, and she had many experiences, but finally the race would then continue with this child of Eve and her husband Adam, and Eve now tells you that YAHWEH HAD GIVEN HER ANOTHER SEED, thus this race could now grow.

The next lady to appear as a personality in the Old Testament is Sarah (Genesis chapters 16 and 17). Her name was changed from the Chaldean…Sarai..to the Hebrew Sarah, signifying Princess of a multitude, just as Abraham was also to be a ‘father of many nations’. However this also depended upon his wife selected by the Almighty, thus she had this title bestowed upon her, and upon no other. When YAHWEH called Abraham out of Ur of the Chaldees, he called both husband and wife as a family to leave these surroundings. And all through the experiences which Sarah had we find that YAHWEH protected her at all times, even in the Palace of the Pharaoh, or in the Court of Abimeleck.

From this Ancient History we find that Sarah was a beautiful Aryan lady. Her residence was the most important place of an encampment in their Nomadic life. We find that their life style was quite different than ours of today. Sarah was thus a tribal mother, these two were wealthy and they owned many servants and lived the life style of wealthy people. We find that in those days the women owned the residence of the Mother and children, managed that residence, saw to the education of the children and the instructions of the servants. She also managed the servants who provided the comfort of her husband in his dwelling place in the encampment. At Mamre later in life we find that the Residence of Sarah was at Mamre, where as Abraham lived at Beersheba, and here she managed a great encampment and we know this because we are told that Abraham came here to mourn Sarah at her death. Thus as Abraham and Sarah left Ur of the Chaldees they were also a great company for Abraham took all their belongings with them, even his Great Library, and this encampment of these important people would surely grow over those many years as they waited for this child of the Promise… ‘In Isaac shall thy seed be called.’ Both Apostles Peter and Paul spoke of excellence of Sarah, and Isaiah bids his people…’Look unto Sarah who bare you.’

In the Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in the Judean desert in 1947., in the 7th Scroll you find a description of Sarah, as a woman of exquisite beauty, with a pure white skin. Other points of physical beauty were noted and recorded so that today we have quite an accurate picture of Sarah who won the admiration of Kings, and Princes, as she reigned, a great beauty among her people. After the death of Sarah, then Abraham set out to find a wife for his son Isaac, who would replace Sarah, as ‘tribal mother’ and who would then occupy Sarah’s State Tent. This was to be a very careful selection and Abraham sent his steward Eliezer to Haran to Abraham’s own people, and we find that this steward wondering if the girl will leave her own home to come to live with Isaac, for this would be very unusual for these times.

It was REBECCA, the beautiful daughter of Bethuel, of Padan Aram, who was chosen to fulfill the plan of the Almighty, and yes…it was Rebecca herself who said:..’I will go’, thus she was not forced into this marriage. And we find that an imposing Cavalcade thus set out to follow Eliezer to the home of Isaac. Deborah, her nurse, would also go with Rebecca and her maids and servants. After a long journey south then finally this young lady now to be known as Rebekah would see coming toward their mounted company this man she had agreed to marry, although she had never seen him. Rebekah dismounted from her white camel and according to Hebrew words took a shawl to cover the dust of her embroidered traveling costume. In those early days there was no veil to cover the face of the women of this old land as we would see later.

Isaac installed Rebekah in his mothers state tent, and later the two were married. From ancient records we find that Rebecca was a independent as Sarah had been. And it was not until 20 years later that twin sons were born to Rebekah, and were named Esau and Jacob, thus fulfilling their belief in God’s promise of multitudinous seed. In spite of what some have said as to the scheming of Rebekah still she was merely a factor in YAHWEH’s plan, of establishing His kingdom in earth. Oh! you say, she took advantage of an old blind man, but was it not for this moment that he was made blind? Rebekah also stands unique as the first woman to challenge this ‘man’ instituted rule of the eldest son as the heir, and she made nonsense of it.

DEBORAH is mentioned in scripture, and she and her brother Rothens were both of the family of Abraham, they were Chaldeans..yes, but both were Aryans who worshiped YAHWEH, and were free born. It also appears that Deborah would accompany Jacob as he was sent to his mother’s people to escape the wrath of Esau.

REBEKAH’S death is not recorded in the Scripture but as Jacob lay dying in Egypt, he mentions her burial place as Machpelah, in the sepulcher with Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, and Leah.

RACHEL, AND LEAH are introduced as the daughters of Laban of Haran, another Aryan whom YAHWEH was using to unfold His purposes. The love story of Jacob and Rachel is a most familiar story in the Bible. But Leah was given to Jacob as his first wife because of her being the eldest daughter, and this YAHWEH allowed. After 20 years in the confines of Laban’s home district, we find Jacob asking permission of his wives, who now numbered 4, and after this permission is granted, we find them assembling their belongings, and their livestock, and then leaving on the long journey back to Jacob’s old home.

Once again because of much mistranslation, and misunderstanding we are told that Rachel was carrying these so called ‘gods’ and it was supposed that these represented other God’s than YAHWEH. Actually we learn that these so called ‘gods’ were the ‘Title Deeds’ to the property that both Rachel and Leah and their children would inherit from the girl’ father. These were actually small tablets of stone, and baked clay, upon which were written characters describing the ownership of property. Some of these ancient title deeds can be seen today in the Museum in Britain.

Some of these ancient ‘Title Deeds’ were what Laban was searching for as he came after Jacob and his wives and children. He was thinking that since they were leaving him he would then take over their inheritance. Since he would not find the title deeds then he pursued Jacob and his wives. Not finding them here, to be on the safe side then Laban erected this ‘heap of stone’ and both Laban and Jacob promised not to pass this ‘heap of stones’ to do harm to each other. Until this time then Jacob had not known that Rachel was carrying those ‘title deeds’.

We see that Rachel was always the wife of Jacob’s choice and retained this position. As they were to meet Esau and his company we find that Jacob placed the Handmaidens and their children first, then Leah and her children next, and last Rachel and her 12 year old son…Joseph. Thus once again we see the hand of YAHWEH, for Joseph was to play his part later in an important role in this great program.

While at Shalem, a city of Chechem, in the land of Canaan, YAHWEH appeared unto Jacob instructing him to go to Bethel, and there he was to build an altar unto YAHWEH. We now find this group changing their clothing, and Jacob took the Title Deeds and other valuable articles and buried them under an Oak Tree where they were camped. The reason being that now this company of Jacob would be traveling as poor people, so as not to tempt the heathen to rob them. Thus they put away their beautiful embroidered traveling garments and put on their very plain clothing, and they then set out to go to Bethel, and when arriving they built an altar unto YAHWEH. For some reason they did not stay here, but continued on toward Jacob’s old home.

This had been a hard journey for Rachel who was pregnant with her second child. When there was but a little way yet to go, Rachel gave birth to a baby son, and they named him Benjamin. Then Rachel died and Jacob was very much grieved thinking that he should have stayed at Bethel, and his remarks show his feelings:…’Rachel died by me, in the land of Canaan’. The monument which Jacob raised over his beloved Rachel’s Tomb was much later included in the land allotted to the tribe of Benjamin when Canaan land was divided among the 12 tribes of Israel. It is also recorded that Bilhah nursed the infant Benjamin, and cared for him because of Jacob’s grief. It was said that Joseph inherited his mothers beauty, and Benjamin her courage and adventurous spirit. Later as Herod carried out the massacre of the children of Bethlehem this was also done in the territory belonging to Benjamin..thus made true this….’Rachel weeping for her children, refused to be comforted, because they were not’. These words would not have applied if these had been Judah’s children, because Leah, not Rachel was their mother.

ZILPAH AND BILHAH…were maids in waiting to Leah and Rachel. And they were also the children of Rothens and his wife. Remember that Rachel’s maid Deborah and Rothens were brother and sister out of the household of Abraham. They had been captured in their youth, rescued by Laban and then adopted into his household. Rothens married Euno of the Aryan House of Padam-Aran, and Zilpha and Bilhah were their daughters.

Bilhah is reported to have died while in mourning for Joseph after he was said to have been killed, and you then remember that it was Bilhah who had cared for Rachel’s two sons after Rachel died. Jacob buried Bilhah near Rachel’s grave, and many years later the sons of Zilpah would bring their mother back from Egypt and bury her also near the grave of Rachel.

DINAH (Gen: 34) was the daughter of Jacob and Leah. Dinah had gone to the city of Shechem to view the clothing worn by those women of that city. She was seized by the King after he saw her great beauty. He wanted to marry her but Dinah…remember was from the lineage of Judgeship inherited by her mother, and if she would marry a Hivite this would subjugate her judgeship to another race, and only the bringing in of the Hivites into Israel as a race, by the rite of circumcision would remedy the situation, or so the brothers thought, and this the brothers attempted to do, but this would not be allowed, as they should have known and you remember what happened. Dinah was about 14 years of age at this time. Two benefits came from this situation..no longer would the non-Hebrews interfere with the women of Israel, they were afraid of the consequence. Also Jacob had discovered the title deed to an inheritance and some day they will be produced to witness the accuracy of this Biblical story.

TAMAR (Gen: 38) There is some question as to whether Judah married the Cainanite woman, but he was seduced by her beauty and the amount of gold offered by her father, and he did not resist this temptation. It is thus reported that three sons were born to her, and the two older sons were recorded as being so wicked that they were slain by YAHWEH, thus only one son of this union remained. Tamar a Hebrew lady had been picked by Judah as a wife for his eldest son, and then when he died and then the second died, then Judah sent her home, or so he thought.

Tamar was well aware of the necessity of racial purity, and she was determined that Judah’s descendants be Hebrew as YAHWEH demanded. She was also well aware that she ran the risk of being burnt by fire, for doing as she had determined to do. Therefore as protection she obtained from Judah his signet or ring, which was his emblem of power or authority, the bracelet or cords of gold from which the signet was suspended, and the staff which also signified a scepter or emblem of authority. Tamar knowing the weakness of Judah used this desire to acquire these identifying emblems and she shamed her father-in-law into admitting that she was more worthy than he; for she corrected him, and carried out the wishes of Almighty YAHWEH. Twin sons were then born to Tamar whom Judah now married, and they were named Pharez and Zarah. Shelah the other son of Judah married and stayed close to the House of Israel, but was disqualified from any part in Israel because of his birth. Judah had to admit that ‘She (Tamar) hath been more righteous than I’.

MIRIAM (Exodus 2:15 & Num. 12) Three children were born to Amaran and Jochebed, of the House of Levi while the Israelites were in Egypt. Miriam was the oldest, and like her brothers..Moses and Aaron, was destined to be an instrument in the hands of Almighty YAHWEH for the release of Israel from bondage in Egypt.

We meet Miriam as a young girl watching from the bank of the Nile, as to the fate of her baby brother who had been laid in an Ark, or basket among the rushes near the rivers bank. Miriam watched as Pharaoh’s daughter walked by the river and noticed this weeping little baby boy. Miriam approaches and suggests that she could fetch a Hebrew nurse, and the Princess agrees. Miriam then races for her mother not far away who now comes to take her little son home to care for him until he is of age to enter upon his schooling at the court of Egypt. Remember that this is also an Aryan or Hebrew court where Moses would receive his schooling.

We see no more of Miriam until she emerges as a prophetess and leader of the women taking part in the Exodus out of Egypt. It was Miriam who composed the song..’Sing ye to YAHWEH, for He hath triumphed gloriously. The horse and his rider, He hath thrown into the sea.’

Miriam had married Hur of the tribe of Judah and it was Hur and Aaron who held up the arms of Moses in the battle of the Israelites with the Amalekites. About one year after the crossing of the Red Sea, we find Miriam and even Aaron disagreeing with their brother Moses as to whether he should have taken a wife, said by the translators to be an Ethiopian woman. In our earlier tapes we have given you the lineage of Zipporah, and although she was not of this distinct Israelite line, still she was of the Race and YAHWEH had sanctioned this marriage, thus she was a Hebrew, and high born. Moses had been chosen by YAHWEH to lead His people out of Egypt, and here was Miriam questioning the authority of Moses. It seems that our people never learn, but in this case Miriam would learn the hard way and she became leprous for 7 days. Only YAHWEH would decide such a question about his picked leader. Miriam died at about the end of the 40 years and both she and Aaron were buried at Kadesh, not far from Mount Hor. Miriam had been a leader, an organizer, and the superintendent of Women’s welfare. This called for an ability in leadership and resourcefulness in a new and untried field, and now that she had been chastised, still she remained an important woman in Israel.

RAHAB, perhaps Rahab has had more misinformation attached to her name than any lady of Israel. The story of Rahab actually begins at the time when Joseph brought this two sons…Ephraim and Manasseh to Jacob to receive the Patriarchial Blessing. Although both sons of Joseph were also descendents from Asenath, the Princess of ON, from the lineage of Enoch, she was also connected to Sarah the titled Queen of the Multitude, and also connected at her time in history to Ephraim.

In this time Egypt was a great center of the world’s culture, and Ephraim and Manasseh had been brought up at the court of Egypt. They were taught of their inherited blessings. Then Ephraim had three sons and like all Israelites they were impatient to enter upon their inheritance. Here in Egypt it seemed to these boys that these descendents of Abraham were likely to remain in Egypt for ever. These three sons then in their hurry decided to go to visit this land of Canaan which was supposed to be their inheritance. This was not a problem, because at this time Egypt was a very powerful nation and they traveled as Egyptians. Something then happened while they were in Canaan, and all three sons of Ephraim were killed. (I Chron. 7:20-22)

Ephraim mourned for many days, his heirs were slain by the men of Garth…what a tragedy. But in his old age Ephraim had another son who was given the name of Beriah..meaning: evil went with his house. This son grew to manhood and married, and the 9th., in descent from him was Joshua who was trained to lead Israel into the Promised Land. Thus Moses of the tribe of Levi would lead them in the wilderness and train this young and powerful army but the Birthright tribe of Joseph would conduct Israel over the Jordan.

In this ‘time’ between Ephraim and Joshua, a daughter of Beriah–her name Sherah..went into the land of Canaan and settled there with her husband and family, and many servants and attendants. She became a most powerful as well as wealthy woman. She built three cities or castles, Beth-horon the nether, Beth-horan the upper, and Uzzena-sherah, or the stronghold of Sherah (I Chron. 7:24). Here in the center of Canaan this granddaughter of Joseph and the Princess of ON lived as did her descendents until they were joined by their kinsmen under Joshua. It was into one of the families of this household that Rahab was born. From the Tel-el-Amarna Tablets of Archaeology we know that Egypt had control of this land, and a Paka was resident in each town, there to guard the Egyptian interests.

Then from the old book 1813., as well as from other sources we find Rahab and her family then astride the wall of Jericho, as ambassadors of Egypt, as the Israelites came into the so called Promised Land. No doubt they knew of their relatives, and now Rahab would be in a position to help her relatives at the city of Jericho.

In eastern language at that time the word Harlot simply described a woman who was a widow. In the authorized version of Scripture we find Jeroboam’s mother recorded as a widow woman (I Kings 11:26) while in the Septuagint the word is translated as Harlot. In the Ferrah Fenton version Rahab is listed as an Inn Keeper, and Coverdale has it as a Taverner.

It seems from history that the Egyptian representatives were departing as the Israelites came into Canaan land. The last Paka in Jericho had died, and his widow..Rahab had not as yet vacated the Embassy which was at the northwest corner of the city. Rahab’s home was astride the wall adjoining the Embassy.

Joshua had been well trained, he moved only at the command of YAHWEH. He would not make the mistake of his forefathers in their premature attempt to take over their inheritance. Thus Joshua sent two men into the city, to the home of Rahab their Kinswoman. Rahab in talking to the two men called in translation..spies..said: ‘I know that YAHWEH has given you the land’, and being anxious to secure the safety of her family living here who had been separated from the main body of Israel for 8 or 9 generations, then asked for their safety.

As Joshua prepared for the crossing of the river, Rahab was sending messages to all her people to come to the Embassy immediately. The gates to the city had been shut, no one was coming in or going out. Everything was tense as the city waited to see what the incoming Israelites would do. Then the day came and as you know the Walls of Jericho came down, all but the area where the Egyptian Embassy and attached home of Rahab stood. These 2 men then came from the Israelite camp to lead Rahab, her mother and father, and all her brethren safely out of Jericho. Thus Rahab..herself an Israelite, was Divinely chosen to help the Israelites as they came into their inheritance.

In the Tel-el-Amarna Tablets we learn that ‘The Hornet’ spoken of in the Scripture was actually the Badge of Thotmes II, and of his successor…rulers of Egypt, thus: ‘I, YAHWEH, sent the Hornet before thee, which drove them out before you’. And we thus learn that the Egyptian rulers were helping the Israelites. Dr. Charles Marston in his Archaeological research agrees that Israel did have help from Egypt at this time. In fact Queen Thyi, wife of Amenhotep II, and mother of Amenhotep IV, came from northern Syria which was inhabited by descendents of Terah, the father of Abraham. This fair-haired, blue-eyed Queen on the Egyptian monument was thus in kinship with Abraham, and also with Rahab. She had married Prince Salma or Salmon of the House of Pharez-Judah, and was thus brought into the exclusive Royal Family from which the House of David was built. (Matt 1:5)

In time we find that Rahab’s son had married Ruth, and Naomi would thus be Ruth’s mother-in-law by her first marriage, and Rahab was her mother-in-law by her second marriage, thus these were women famous in Israel, and their names are recorded in the lineage of our Redeemer and King. (Hebrews 11:31) Rahab is mentioned because she defended the cause of her people. Her faith was the faith of one like Abraham, thus justified by Faith, thus received the commendation and blessing of the God of Israel.

RUTH, lived in the country called ‘the land of the Moabites’. This ancient land (Num. 32:1-40) was on the east side of the Jordan, and from here you could see the land of Canaan. Racial Moab was the enemies of Israel, and their territory lay south and east of the Dead Sea.

Elimelach, a member of the House of Pharez-Judah had gone east to this land over the Jordan, in search of food. Here then Naomi lost her husband and her two sons, one of whom had married Ruth. This family was very aware of the Divine plan for the Judean nation. It was thus from this land that Naomi and her daughter-in-law decided to return to their old homeland in Bethlehem of Judea. The other son of Naomi had married a girl named Orphah, and she as well as Ruth knew that according to Mosaic Law that as widows they were to move with Naomi until she released them from those legal ties. Orphah was released and she returned to her own people, but Ruth would move with Naomi to fulfill her place in destiny.

Now;…Naomi with both her sons dead was playing a part which YAHWEH APPROVED OF, for the 7th., Jubilee was near, and this meant that a parcel of land would now revert back to Naomi, but now there was no one to claim this inheritance, unless she could see that Ruth married Boaz, a Prince of the same kindred, as the husband of Naomi. Ruth would also play her part in building the House of David, in the land of Benjamin. You will remember how Ruth went to the field of Boaz, and the result found Boaz and Ruth married. Ruth is spoken of as a stranger, but the word is ‘nokri’…but she was just a stranger to her own blood in the land she had not before visited. The word for an alien of another race would have been ‘Zar’.

As Naomi made Ruth her heir then all her sons property would descend to Ruth’s first born child. Thus the son of Boaz and Ruth would also have for a nurse his own grandmother, and he would then help build this House of David. Ruth lived to see her great grandson David grow up. She may have been at his Coronation when her kinsmen from east of the Jordan River sent 120,000 men fully armed to this historic Coronation. Perhaps it was from Ruth that David inherited his gift of poetry which he used in writing the Psalms.

DEBORAH..Prophetess and Judge (Judges 4 & 5)

Deborah was married to a chieftain named Lapedoth, and lived in a pleasant spot in Mount Ephraim. She was made a Judge of Israel because of her outstanding ability in that field, as well as because of her gift of prophecy, and she could look into the future and accurately predict coming events. She was also a poet and an Astronomer.

In her duties as Judge of Israel Deborah heard of the distress of the women of Israel who were always pursued by this Sisera, the Commander in Chief of Jabin the Cainanite. For 20 years this stealing of the women of Israel had been going on through these raids into Israel land by Sisera. Not only did Sisera rob them of their beautiful embroidered garments, but any Israel girl or woman he could capture was taken back to the Cainanite camp and given to his troops. Deborah decided this must be stopped, and she sent for Barak who was the General of Israel’s forces. He was hesitant because of the smallness of his forces to pit them against the 30,000 footmen, 3000 horsemen, and the 900 chariots of iron which Sisera commanded. It was decided that Barak would go to war with his troops if Deborah would go with him, since it was the custom for a high standing Priest or Prophet to accompany the armies of Israel. Deborah planned the battle strategy and called the tribes of Ephraim and Benjamin to send troops which they did. She then directed Barak to position his troops on the slopes of Mount Tabor while the Mighty Hosts of the Cainanites assembled on the plains of Esdraelon below.

Deborah, remember, was an Astronomer and she knew that in November the annual shower of Meteorites always occurred in Palestine, and then following this display came rain and sleet. As she scanned the skies she saw the signs she was looking for and she gave the orders for Barak and his army to start their descent of the mountain. As the storm broke, the chariot wheels became stuck in the mud, the river Kishon overflowed its banks, and those who did not fall by the swords of Israel were swept away. Sisera saw the defeat of his army and he descended from his chariot and fled on foot north and east to a small colony of people called Kenites where he thought he would be safe.

You remember the story of how Sisera asked for a drink, from this woman who was an Israelite, and how she recognized him, and as he fell asleep she disposed of him. Deborah then celebrated this victory of two women of Israel over this one who had been capturing the women of Israel for so long. Deborah sang:…..

‘Bless the children of Jael,

The wife of Heber the Kenite,

Bless all the sons of her tent.’

The word Kenite simply designated the land where they lived as in the case of Ruth and others this is just a misunderstanding as to old languages and names. Many times we have read that the tribes of Israel on the east side of the Jordan were more liable to be straying from their God, but history tells us that they produced some outstanding characters such as Elijah the Tishbite.

HANNAH (I Samuel 1-2) It was the custom in Ancient Israel according to the Mosaic Law for a man of Israel to take his brothers widow into his household. Thus were the women of Israel protected. In Scripture it lists Elkanah as a Levite of Mount Ephraim, and he had two wives, named Hannah, and Peninnah. The former, beloved of her husband, had no children, and Hannah prayed in the Tabernacle for a son, and made a vow that she would surrender this child to the service of YAHWEH, if one be granted to her.

The following year as the Passover was again to be celebrated we find Hannah bringing a little son whom she had named Samuel..meaning ‘ask of the YAHWEH’. When Samuel was about three years old she took him to the old Priest Eli, and put him in his care, saying:…’As long as he liveth he shall be lent to YAHWEH’.

Hannah believed in the Resurrection, in the power of YAHWEH, and in the prophecies for the preservation of their nation. Samuel her son was the last of the Judges, and he founded the School of the Prophets. Samuel’s son was Joel the Prophet, who was one of the three singers selected by David to arrange and preside over the Temple Service. In fact 14 of Samuel’s descendents were singers or participants in the music service of the Temple. It is said that Psalmody was commenced by Miriam and the women on the shores of the Red Sea, and introduced into the Temple service by the songs of Hannah.

ABIGAIL (I Samuel 25) through the selfishness of her parents was married to Nabal, a man of great wealth but with a bad disposition. He is also listed as a drunkard. Nabal however was of the tribe of Judah, a descendent of Caleb, one of the two spies sent into the Promised Land. And one of Caleb’s grandsons was named Zip, and the descendents of this grandson was called Ziphites. Nabal belonged to the house of Zip, thus was called a Ziphite.

Abigail was also from the tribe of Judah, a descendent of one of the families who settled around Mount Carmel. This family of Nabal and Abigail because of their possessions were considered very wealthy, and because of their dwelling place were called Carmelites. Then also Abigail was wealthy and renown in her own right.

David, before he became King, lurked in his neighborhood with his men, and they protected the flocks therein from wild beasts and from the Arabs as well. When Nabal held his annual Shearing Feast then David in polite words sent a desire for a present from his wealthy kinsman. Nabal was aware of who David was but he preferred Saul as King, and he belittled David by asking:…who is this David, the son of Jesse? And he refused the sending of any food to David and his men. This made David very angry, but before he could take his revenge, Abigail gave orders for 200 loaves, 2 bottles of wine, 5 sheep ready dressed, 5 measures of parched corn, a hundred clusters of raisins, and 200 cakes of figs to be made ready.

As David advanced toward the dwelling of Nabal he was met by this train of heavily laden asses conducted by serving men, and riding at the head of them…a beautiful woman. As the two forces met, Abigail dismounted and addressed David as the future ruler of Israel, and begged him not to become entangled with her husband in a blood feud, instead would he not accept this food as a Peace offering. David was deeply moved by her eloquence and beauty, and accepted the gift and bade her go in Peace.

As Abigail returned home she found the Feast in progress, and Nabal was drunk. She never told him until the next morning as to what she had done. She expected an outburst of fury, and it came, but Nabal also suffered a stroke which left him speechless, and in ten days he passed away. When this news came to David he was amused, but not sorrowful. He was still very much effected by the beauty and intelligence of this lady, she seemed to have made a deep impression upon him. Her faith in his future made him wonder if she would be willing to share it, thus he sent her a proposal of marriage and she accepted. She came to David with 5 of her ladies, one as beautiful as herself, by the name of Ahinoam, and David with Abigail’s consent, married the younger lady as well. The three lived in harmony, and Ahinoam produced the first heir for David.

Did you notice the symbolic number 5 in this story? Abigail brought 5 sheep already dressed, 5 measures of parched corn, 5 ladies, one as beautiful as herself. The number 5 signifies ‘Divine Grace’. Then you will also remember that the Israelites came out of Egypt in ranks of 5, but the number 5 to the Egyptians ‘who knew not Joseph’ was an abomination. Then under the command of Joshua the Israelites crossed over the Jordan marshaled in 5’s. Were not the Israelites given this seal of ‘Divine Grace’ for…fulfilling YAHWEH’S purposes in the world?

BETHSHEBA (2 Samuel 11-12) is listed as the 7th., daughter of Eliam, son of Ahithophel, and as wife of Uriah the Hittite. Through mistranslation Bethsheba a maiden of Royal blood was not married to a non-Israelite. Uriah was an Israelite, his Hebrew name signifies ‘YAHWEH is Light’. He lived in the land once occupied by the Hittites who were a squat, stout people, their eyes and hair was very dark. No racial Hittite would have been accepted into the House of Israel as a husband for the beautiful Bethsheba.

You remember the story of David and Bethsheba, as David, another Israelite gets ahead of the plan and purpose of YAHWEH, would have to pay for his sin, this resulted in the loss of his little son. However Bethsheba a most beautiful and intelligent woman proved to be the companion and sweetheart that David had always looked for. Another son would be born and his name was Solomon, and he fulfilled more of the prophecy of this people. Actually the name of Jedidiah was given to Solomon by Divine Command, and it signified..’Pardoned by the Everliving’. This token of Divine Mercy was received by David with gratitude, and was reflected in his Psalms, especially the 51st., for it seemed that David felt that he was now forgiven.

Bethsheba bore yet 3 other sons….Nathan, Shimea, and Shobab. She was very careful of the education of her sons, especially of Solomon, since David had promised that Solomon would be his successor, and as this came to pass, Bethsheba was the most honored woman at the Coronation of her son.

THE QUEEN OF SHEBA (2 Chron. 9:1-12)., this lady from old records was an Aryan from the line of descendants of Joktan, the son of Heber. Hearing of the Kingdom of Israel and the wisdom of King Solomon she came from the Arabian Gulf escorted by her own subjects, bearing many gifts for King Solomon. (I Kings 10) We are told that she came to Jerusalem because of concern for the name of YAHWEH, and as she asked theological questions of Solomon, he answered, and her confidence in the LORD GOD of ISRAEL to fulfill His covenant with Abraham is born out by her words:..’Because YAHWEH thy God loved Israel to establish them forever’, proved that a person skilled in the Ancient History of Israel had asked the question. We outlined for you in one of the early tapes this story of the visit between the Queen of Sheba and the Romance between King Solomon and this Queen and the establishment of her child therefore will not repeat it now.

HULDA the Prophetess (2 Kings 22)

In the days of Solomon’s son the ten tribes of Israel left their connection with Judea and since the Birthright tribe of Ephraim was with them they retained the name as House of Israel. In the reign of the last King of Judah we are told that this famous book of Israel..The LAW was found. The King, after hearing the words of ‘The Book of The Law’ rent his clothes, realizing how far Israel had wandered from her original path. He sent the High Priest to Huldah the Prophetess to ask what was to happen to Israel. She replied:..Thus saith the God of Israel, tell ye the man who sent you to me thus saith YAHWEH…Behold! I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the words of the book which the King of Judah hath read. Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and it shall not be quenched.’ In the end of her warning she told the king that

YAHWEH had heard his cries of remorse and would gather him to his grave in peace, so that his eyes would not see what YAHWEH would bring on Jerusalem.

Huldah was held in high esteem by the dignitaries of the Temple proving that women were admitted to the highest offices of teaching. Huldah was classed as the wisest prophet of that time, even the king turned to her to learn if this was really the Law of YAHWEH. After the death of Josiah the evil foretold by Huldah overtook the nation of Judea and of course Jerusalem.

If you will recall we have reviewed for you the work of the women of Israel at the time of YAHSHUA, and the Apostles in the earlier tapes as we also reviewed the 18 lost years in the life of The Christ. We find no better analyses in these later studies, therefore we refer you to those earlier tapes for the work of the women at the Time of the Christ such as the different Mary’s and Martha and so forth. We also covered at that time the relationship of the Apostle Paul to different people in Rome and some of these women were very outstanding.

As you review History we find other women who played their part in the life style of the Aryan family. These Aryan women followed their men in these great migrations of this race all over this globe, thus playing their part in the establishment of a Kingdom family in earth. That has been the theme of this tape series, a Kingdom built on the family…of a race of people…following the blueprint laid down by our Father and God.

As we come up to the period of the colonization of the United States we find that women of the Kingdom were still playing their part in this westward migration of God’s Israel. Without the Pioneer Women the United States of America would not have attained her place in destiny. We find that the English speaking Aryan men especially, took his wife and children with him as he came west just as the former Aryans did as they left that old land of Palestine to carve out the New Jerusalem in the west. Israel would have a new name…Christian or followers of The Christ, whereas the old name would be taken up by those upon whom HE HAD PLACED A CURSE, and Old Jerusalem broken like a potters vessel.

Much time passed and the English language came into being and much mistranslations also occurred, as the prophecy of ‘Blindness in part has happened to Israel’ was being fulfilled. It is remembered that the letters J and U were not common or generally in use in the English language until about the 17th., century, before this they were listed at the bottom of the alphabet as though an afterthought. But as you know things are changed almost full circle as the Children of Darkness try to take over this Kingdom…now established in the west.

Now the letter J would be brought into play and added to the first of such words as Ewes (sheep) YAHSHUA WOULD BECOME JESUS, and only the Son of God, not His Embodiment, and thus it went, yet this migration of the Kingdom people went on. As the people remembered their past they worshiped YAHWEH until the learned of the coming of YAHWEH as YAHSHUA Savior, and their worship and belief went on. This was as though engraved on their hearts, they might stray far but deep down in their inner self they knew that YAHSHUA…’came only to the Sheep (ewes) of Lost Israel’. In the hearts of the ancestors of our race this recalled the picture in the heavens, in The Star Bible, as the Great Ram watching over the sheep of His pasture.

Here in these United States although the enemy has tried to hide our history, we found that the Pioneer Women of The Kingdom were still playing their part in this great drama of The Kingdom of God in earth, for without Pioneer Women these United States of America would not have attained their place in destiny. As the English speaking Aryan man came west he brought his wife and children with him, and this kept his racial line intact. The French and Spanish men did not always do this and were more tempted to break the race barrier.

Over these United States we find erected 12 (an interesting number) of Statues honoring the Pioneer Woman. The one located at Council Grove in Kansas, is placed on the site of the Old Santa Fe Trail rendezvous campground. This monument titled:…MADONNA OF THE TRAIL, commemorates the courage of Pioneer Women who forged homes from the vast American West. This young Pioneer lady is dressed in a long skirt, heavy boots, and a sun bonnet on her head. In her left arm she cradles a baby, her right hand grasps a rifle barrel, and her little son clutches her skirt.

In Ponca, Oklahoma you will find another such statue honoring the Pioneer Woman. This statue is of a young sun-bonneted pioneer mother, protectively leading her young son by the hand, while striding confidently, determination and humility are in her face as she gazes forward thinking of her destiny.

It is recorded that 12 of the leading sculptors of the world submitted designs in the form of small models honoring these Pioneer Women. The one in Ponca, Oklahoma was dedicated to all the Pioneer Women of the United States, and it carries this inscription:…’In appreciation of the heroic character of the women who braved the dangers and endured the hardships incident to the daily life of the pioneer and homesteader in this country.’ Remember there are ten more of these Statues located on these trails that led westward over this nation, and they are dedicated to these Pioneer Women of America. As you travel watch for them and you will feel for the Identity of the Women of the Kingdom for that era.

Since the days of the Pioneer Women there have been others outstanding but we will leave their names to history after it has once more been sorted out. We today place Mrs. Thatcher of Great Britain as one in our time who did her work for her nation and the Kingdom.

Here in the United States the Feminist movement has tried so hard to destroy this mission of destiny for the Women of God’s Kingdom, but have only made themselves look silly. No doubt some women joined the movement thinking to improve their positions in our society, but to do this you do not destroy your inheritance or your place in this great program of God Almighty as He builds His Kingdom. You do not throw out the family protector..the husband of the race to achieve this goal, as the Feminist movement has tried to do. YAHWEH ordained…husband and wife walking side by side, equal yes, but each with different duties in this family type life as this Kingdom is established in earth. This is the method ordained to achieve this goal. This also is the reason why the Children of Darkness work so hard to bring down this system of ‘family life style’. In fact they seem to think they would be happy to replace the white man in this family equation. But look what would happen to the Women of the Kingdom if this were allowed, and what it would do to the Children of the Kingdom.

There are many women who stand out in our time, but we will leave their names to history once it is again sorted out. Today you find the philosophy of the Women of Darkness more published than that of the Women of the Kingdom. However we remind you that the Women of the Kingdom of God do not walk alone at the head of this Family of God, in earth. That is not the meaning of Revelation 12:1-3., nor is it the Meaning of the word..’ISRAEL’. Simply put, this is a Kingdom, a family, a race of begotten people moving in the purposes of the Almighty God to eventually bring about the Restitution of all things.

The Women of this Kingdom have marched ‘side by side’ with their men, not two steps ahead, or two behind….just ‘side by side’ as they have played their part in this great program of Destiny, and for this they are to be honored, and protected as the Almighty has proclaimed. The Children of Darkness have at times been able to disturb this pattern, but eventually all will be as it has been determined, and then the Kingdom will be revealed to The World Order. As this occurs we will see the end of this battle between The Children of Darkness, and the Children of Light as this race is called. A Family unit…a Royal Family..if you will, thus making up a Kingdom. All this is yet to be revealed, until all the World will understand.

 

May YAHWEH BLESS

Questions and Answers 5-13-64 – Wesley A. Swift

QUESTION:—–What position does Dr. Swift hold on those people who do not accept Jesus Christ as their Savior????

ANSWER:——Let’s pause right there—Receiving Jesus Christ is a sort of church semantic, it means standing up in front of people and saying:—-I believe that Jesus is the Christ. Or signing the church book and joining the church after having accepted that they now believe. Now;— practically all white men believe that Jesus is the Christ, altho their formulas may have been different. In other words you say some people are agnostics, but there are some people who are casualties of our own educational system. In which we let the refugees come in and now agnosticism, atheism, and pagan philosophies into our educational system, in place of Christianity. But this till lays the responsibility back on the family. Most white people when they were babied growing up learned of Christ at their mothers knee. most of them went to Sunday School and most of them heard. The Majority of our people have heard—-

Now; In the course of most everyone’s life they are going to find out who YAHSHUA or Jesus is. They are going to realize that He is the fullness of God, and when the individual in his inner consciousness becomes aware of this he is being reactivated in his Celestial consciousness. We have all kinds of words for this, and theology of the Orthodox church used the words—‘Born Again’. And they go to the book of John and use the discussion with Nicodemus:—“How can I be twice born, can I re-enter into my mothers womb?” But Jesus said:—Art thou a master of Israel and not understand these things?—You must be ‘twice born’ if you want the knowledge of the Kingdom of heaven. now;—“Ye must be born of the spirit and be born of the water.” I am reversing this because originally it was just reversed. And it wasn’t until later, and in the King James Version it said—born of water and of spirit. And water is the breaking of the water envelope of the womb at natural birth. This is being born of the water. Being born of the Spirit is being begotten of the Spirit of God. This was not done by your parents, this was done by The Father who begat you, not by the will of the flesh, not by the will of man, but by the WILL of GOD as He says in the first chapter of John. Therefore the text should read—to participate in the Kingdom of heaven, this rule on earth, then you must be born of the Spirit—first and then born of water, or natural birth into this physical body. We can assure you that this is true because you came in–what came in?–Your spirit entity of the soul came in to reside in this physical consciousness, and forgetfulness was pulled down in your babyhood because—:”If you could have remembered from whence you came, you would have returned.” If you knew how, if you remembered the process you would go back.

In other words you were with The Father before the World was framed. You have been blessed by the Father with all spiritual blessings before the world was framed. Your name was written in the Lamb’s book of Life before the foundation of the world. I can show you passages after passages of things Good promised me—Before the foundation of the world. And since He promised me then I had to be around to hear that promise. If it is going to be brought back to my remembrance I had to be there to hear it, and if it is going to renew my mind, it has to be something I knew long ago. And if He is going to restore to me, then I had to have had it before. He is also to restore my Light so that my body might put on immortality so I had to have had Light.

Therefore:—“Arise and sine they Light has come, and the Glory of God has risen upon thee.”

Under this instance then what God is going to destroy by enveloping it in Light, and what will be a total destruction—is error—as the Light consciousness of Spiritual truth reshapes the thinking of Lucifer in the seat of his mind, that nature–stan or the devil–will cease to exist. Will be totally eradicated by the Light of truth, and a Glowing archangel will bow before you and acknowledge that you are the children of God—that will be the final results.

Someone says:—when? Oh, we have lots of time, but it can be off millions of years before that time. Just as he set the sign of the Son of man in the heavens which you saw in February 1962. Exactly on time—exactly in measure as Enoch saw it, those planets lined up in the sign of Aquarius, marking the age, exactly as God said it would be. So thousands of years roll by but the measures which set the balance goes back into antiquity. God runs the thing like a fine watch, and I am the least one to worry about whether he is able to finish the thing HE is going to do.

The greatest catalyst you can have is when you think positively concerning what God intends to do, that you roar against the enemy without fear, that he can stop you. And when you start to think in terms of fear that he can stop you this is when he does. This is when you defeat yourselves by throwing up your own walls of limitation.

I am going to tell you that the enemy is in for a great shock, he can’t stand the awakening which is happening, the frustration he feels as he sees what he calls the terrible “Right wing,”

‘the conservative movement’, But what it is—is the Light of facts concerning what is going on.

Now; if the enemy begins to move drastically then God produces drastic reactions. If they get to violent when God sends in a tornado or an earthquake. He just flexes his muscles and swallows up missile sites in Asia, as he did a few weeks ago when he blew up that great earthen damn, and wiped out all those defense plants, and their accompanying cities. It almost wiped out the ancient city of Samarkand. They had to bomb the mountain down before the water got to Samarkand they finally saved that city, but were to late to save those factories of the missiles.

I want to make this very clear—“I call my sheep by name, I lead them out”—Jesus said in the book of John:—“Ye have not chosen me, I have chosen you”—thus except the Spirit call—no man can come (John 15:16). Let me show you another passage in the scripture and then you be sure you declare the Gospel—the truth of God. You let God catalyze it by His own Spirit, and let the chips fall where they will. Don’t you stay up at night worrying about whether this one or that one is going to be saved, or lost. That is My Fathers business and I am going to let him stay up the rest of the night. The scripture in John 6:37 says:—“All that the Father hath given me will come”—I like that don’t you? The word here is Agra-Pneumas—“All that the Spirit hath given me shall come.” Now; listen to the rest of this:—He that cometh I will in no wise cast out.—Not for anything will I cast out. You say: but some he calls and some just come. No—that is not what you are told–read it again.

Now; Verse 44:—No man can come to me except He who sent me draw him, and I will raise him up in the last day. That sort of sows it all up doesn’t it? then in the 17th chapter of John then Jesus said:—-who are you that come?—“Thine they were, and you belonged to the spirit in the heavens, and now you belong to me here in the earth.” “Thine they were in Celestial planes, and still mine they are here in earth in Physical bodies. I am flesh of their flesh, and they are my kinsmen, He told the Apostle Paul all this in the second chapter of the book of Hebrews.

Yes, I believe every man must acknowledge Jesus Christ but every man is going to, for every knee is going to bow, and every tongue shall proclaim. And every one is in trouble until they find Christ so don’t think they aren’t. Especially of your race—they are in trouble in more ways than they know. They may be sitting over there at the bar living it up, and I am not condemning them, but they are a casualty to the impact and condition of environment. They are wasting their night sitting over there but they don’t know it.

Now;—some says: are they lost? Well the only way they are lost is that they haven’t found the pasture where the food is. They aren’t lost as far as God is concerned because He knows where they are. They are like the Indian which we have mentioned before—the Indian said: no me not lost, the wigwam is what is lost. He knew where he was but didn’t know how to get where he wanted to go. And there are a lot of people like that, a lot of people of your race have an inner want and they don’t know how to satisfy it. they may think that inner want is for the beer over there but it really isn’t. They are sitting around hoping to find a kindred spirit. They rush out and join a lodge hoping to find a brotherhood. Even Mr. Moss is running all over trying to find our brotherhood. They are waiting for us to burn a Cross or something like that. The Most powerful brotherhood on the face of the earth is the brotherhood of the family of God, the spiritual center of the church of Christ. That is such a factual brotherhood that when men find it’s association, the catalyst of it’s fraternity, it forms a harder core than has ever been formed before. And when it becomes aware of its responsibility and the impact of its truth it never quits. There are many agencies made up of Christians who are in fraternities or in actual organizations today who take active stands against various things. Far be it for us to impute any of them as not being —In God’s Plan. I say that because we may need a lot of them before we are thru.

I want to point out just this:—there is no agency which is more vital, more satisfying of this need for oneness with God than this catalyzation for true brotherhood with those who are children of the Father—activated by the Spirit. And when you pull a person out of that—drifting—when he doesn’t even know what is wrong, and bring him into contact with the truth. Then he is the happiest person in the world. He has new associations, new friends, new reasons for living.

I am going to tell you this: The reason people go over there to the Methodist Church is because their fathers and grandfathers went to church. And they have been taught to go to church. And they are hoping to get something over there. They go to church because something is them says they have to go to church. And the best thing which happened to them is when they repeat the Apostles Creed and sing:–‘Faith of Our Fathers.’ The old hymns have more religion than the sermon is the minister gets up and says:–‘if we all think right, everything will be alright. If we marry anything on the face of the earth, then everyone will be one race and everybody will be happy.’—They went over there for truth and they got error. So the best thing which happened to them is when they recited the Apostles Creed, or sang the old hymns. But in the meantime, they don’t quit doing this because they are tied to an area of the confession of Faith. But you get hold of some of these people and once they get the truth, you couldn’t drag them back over there.

Now, you know what is about to happen? “One Faith, One LORD, One Baptism,–is about to sweep the whole true Church of Christ in the world. It is going to reach every white man on the face of the earth. And some will have to finally be quickened by Christ’s coming.” Someone said:–‘But aren’t we supposed to be directing men back to heaven?’—getting back there, for I don’t know anywhere else they could go, or anything else that could happen to them. But the biggest thing is to get them to do the thing they were sent here to do. Jesus just gave one prayer to you:—“Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven”,—and they all want to run away. Someone says:–‘But wouldn’t it be better to be in heaven?’ We better finish the job we were sent here to do. In fact, I like it here and most of you do too, even the most self-righteous individuals who won’t laugh because they think God won’t like it. And they live this way so they think they will get back into heaven. But watch them run to the doctor or drug store or call for the Preacher to pray for them when sick. They like it here. there is nothing wrong with the good earth, or the things God blessed; or all the patterns of knowledge, science and achievements, and all the things we are going to do with them when we take them over once again. But let me tell you something. What is wrong with it is, that we the sons of God, sent down here to take back our own inheritance, ‘sent down by our Father’, and we let the devil run things. And then we let some silly preacher who thinks he has more holiness than anyone else and he gets up to say:–‘politics is for the devil.’–So we let the devil run things, and we are in a mess.

Now, this is your business. There is no greater challenge than occupying the earth for the Kingdom. Someone who is a real good conservative, usually has his theology in several twists. He believes in Christ and is against the devil. He believes in his children also. But he will correct them. But he still thinks the devil has to take over the world and hold it for awhile. But the devil has had it too long already.

Now, and in this instance he says that people who try to discharge their responsibilities in some physical activities in the earth—he says this is a social Gospel and is Humanism. Now,—just a moment,—when we point out that you are the children of God in physical bodies, this is not humanism to the point where it separates you from responsibilities. God Himself took on this body and was A MAN among men,–flesh of your flesh and blood of your blood. And was not ashamed to call you His relatives, altho the fullness of God dwelt in those bodies, even as you are all still sons and daughters of God dwelling in physical bodies. There isn’t a Chinamen on the face of the earth who is a son of God. They were created here and God was their creative Father. But they were not His offspring. There isn’t a Negro anywhere in the Universe who can say”–‘I am a child of God. He is my Father. All they can say is HE is the God who created my species.

Someone said:–‘How about us?’–We are His offspring, His issue, a Holy Seed, and have come out of HIM. And His spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God. Because we are the children of god we are led by the spirit of God, and as many as are led by the Spirit of God–they ARE the children of God. This is what Paul was trying to tell us. We try to make it complicated and go thru mental gymnastics to get to the end results of why we are here.

Now, I am going to tell you something. Some go drifting off in the sky and some of us figure on staying down here and overthrowing the Anti-Christ. But the funny thing is that a lot of people waiting to go somewhere aren’t going. And pretty soon they will be glad to crawl up in the trench and join you because things can get rough. I am going to tell you this:–there is no defeat in this BOOK; no area of surprise in it. And the only people not surprised at what is coming on the earth are the people that KNOW.

Now, the problem is that the plot is so big that some people can’t understand. And a little plot they maybe could understand. But when they get a glimmer of this great plot it is so big that they just don’t believe it. And the big plot the enemy can get away with easier than they could a little one. This is what is going on. Satan is playing for keeps. But he has already lost. He lost when he crucified the Christ. If the princes of the world had known when they crucified Christ that they were only killing a physical body, and that HE was going to raise that body and set free every spirit they held in prison, and send them backwards to where they started from, they wouldn’t have done this. Plus the fact that the princes of this world have been under judgement ever since.

So under this instance this is Our Father’s world. Stay here as long as you can and work as hare as you can to bring in the Kingdom. I am going to tell you something. There is no reason why everyone in this room will not move into a New Age and never taste of death. For millions now living will never taste of death. There is no doubt of this.

QUESTION:—How do you explain the conversation that went on between Lazarus and the rich man?

ANSWER:—This was in the area of the separation of the people according to their obedience to the law under how much or how little they were at the mercy of Lucifer in separation. In otherwords, there were gulfs in the Netherworld until Christ conquered that Netherworld and empties it. He left it as just one Netherworld after that. Now you will note that this area is still a philosophical symbolism. The reason for this is that Spirits do not consume water. Spirits in the Netherworld were not devouring liquid and knew no temperatures or heat. So in otherwords, this is symbolic. And the rich man was in areas of mental anguish because he realized his areas of error when he got back into the plane or dimension where things were not obscured as he was now thinking where spirit was an agent. But Lazarus, who he had reviled even in simplicity—-his served truth and was dwelling in the Bosom of Abraham—meaning dwelling in the serenity of Faith.

Now, there are areas that exist in the King James Version and will be found in the Vulgate that as far as the text matter is concerned, may or may not be very well framed in parable-like form. Not as the original—for instance–in the Book of Mark 16:14—you have Christ castigating his disciples for not having believed sufficiently after His Resurrection. And He sent them out into the world to preach the Gospel to every creature and to baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. And those who believe would be saved. And those who did not would be damned. From verse 9 on this last chapter of Mark, until the end is a total fraud. It didn’t exist until 200 years after Christ.

Now, there is not one commission in all this scripture where Jesus ever gave the command to go unto the world and preach to every creature. Only once did He say:–‘Go unto my kinsmen and proclaim that I have come.’ I point out here that even the honesty of scholars has to admit that. Right here in the footnote, it tells you this was not in the original but was added 200 years later. Again if you be a minister who shows himself to be approved, they would recognize that there are areas of mutation right here in the New Testament. And this was done on purpose. In the first place, these passages did not exist in the two most ancient texts. And did not appear until the second and third centuries. They were added by two Jews__________(Aranius) and _________(Hipolenus) in Rome. Why did they put this in? So you would go out to Africa and Asia and try to gather in everyone into one working fraternity until the spiritual center of the Kingdom was mongrelized and integrated. And thus from the beginning its development would be hindered. Therefore, an area of error was sown in right here. You say:–‘knowing this, why would a minister go right on preaching this?’ Because the Devils children print all the texts. And no one wants to oppose them. The Vulgate does the same thing. Then they do this in the book of Matthew as well. I will show you a passage in the Gospel of Luke that didn’t exist in the original text. Which would repudiate the Divinity of Christ. And in is in every Bible. We should not only take it out but it should never have been added in the first place. Luke 3:23—“Jesus being as supposed, the son of Joseph.” This is a lie. It is in italics to show that it was not in the original or older texts. So why have it here?

Now, I suspect with research we could do, altho now time is the factor, but I suspect that every passage like this one has more ramifications if we went into the original—speaking of the Rich Man, trying to persuade and Angelic hosts, the spirit of Abraham to go and warn his brethren so they would not be in anguish for not having discarded their responsibilities while in earth. You see every time Rome had a chance, they put in purgatories, judgements and hells, so it could get penitence areas of priestly control and could keep people in fear. There isn’t anything more phoney than limbo and purgatory. Never was such a place. Never existed at any time. This was created not by Rome, but by the Jews who penetrated Rome. Being unable to destroy the Christian Church thru martyrdom, they joined it and fed doctrines into the church. The doctrines of Limbo, and purgatory that kind of flaming Netherworld came out of Baal religion. And was what was threatened in Babylon by the Baal Priests to everyone who did not fulfill Satans desires by serving him and turning away from YAHWEH. The one who promised flames was Lucifer. You see there is nothing quite as irresponsible —do you suppose that in the course of behavior that the devil would be at war with YAHWEH and trying at ever area of temptation to get men to violate the laws of God, and therefore be subservient to him, and when they come over on his side does it make sense that he would torture them because he had won? Do you suppose that the devil would keep hell to please God? Or do you think God would make any pleasure in torture, if we were to accept the other process? The whole thing don’t make sense to begin with. The devil never kept hell for anybody. The only thing is he doesn’t like the fact that the spirit disembodied by death of this own household and races under his religion are consigned to the Netherworld and go thru their cycles.

If we want into the Spiritual law which relates to these beings it would take another evening, but it deals with the nature of demons and devils, and shades, and with the areas of obsessions, and how they move and function. This is a part of the mechanics of the negative Kingdom just as we were discussing a few weeks ago the mechanics of the Celestial Kingdom.

The great surrounding which we have tonight of so great a cloud of witnesses —- in otherwords every last one of our forbearers have gone back into the plane of spirit. Are in Celestial planes the same dimension that our spirit lives in, but they move in it all the time. A certain amount of them have been assigned as guarding spirits beyond and with you. And they help to catalyze the guiding influences that give you those hunches your get ever once in a while. This is a catalyzation because you had the spirit to guide you all the time. And our Angelic hosts have responsibilities —-there are warrior Angels who surround the camp of the Kingdom as well. George Washington knew of this, and so did our founding gathers when they set those 13 stars in that halo. You go back and you find that halo was the shielding, abiding presence of the Eternal God around the ‘New Order’ of His forming—Novus Ordo Seculorum. They perceived Him as He said He was—“A cloud by day and a fire by night”. That pillar of smoke—-the word is effulgence, so—–I AM is in this cloud which is like a shimmering vapor—– I AM with you. This was with Israel 40 years—the abiding presence of God. As important as this Universe is, the Father said:—-I will not leave you. He said:—“I bore you on Eagles wings and brought you unto Myself”. I not only stayed with you but I am around you most of the time. He tells of how He brought in a great space fleet with 10,000 of His believing offspring. His space fleet with those believing offspring scattered out over three mountain peaks, and sat down on Mount Sinai the day He gave the law.

I talked to a minister the other day and he said:—I think to many people are on a space kick—a flying saucer kick, I don’t think this has anything to do with the Bible—do you? I said:—well as far as transportation goes and fast vehicles, My father and our family thru out the universe have more of this than we have ever dreamed of. I said:—God brought 10,000 of his saints with Him when he brought the law to Mount Sinai, and their great crafts flew over mountain tops and came down on Mount Sinai. And there was a craft in the cloud which hovered over Israel as they came out of Egypt. The man said: that isn’t in My Bible. I said:—what kind of a Bible do you have? He said:–a King James Version. I said:—it is in Deuteronomy, and I had to show him how YAHWEH came with His Saints. I said:—what do you suppose they were doing flying along like geese?

He said:–I didn’t know that was in my Bible.—Well it is what men don’t know that makes up the vacuums.

Now;—Seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you.

Every time I turn around I learn something. O’Grady brought over a paper tonight, and this came from New Mexico, a little more light on this subject, for not only did they see a UFO but some silly people tried shooting at it. They could just be thankful that those in the flying object have a good sense of humor. You know Michael can just push a button and a whole ship just disintegrates. This was what was so disconcerting to Lucifer when he had to transport a lot of these beings. Everything was flying apart but God said:—Stay—Michael do not make a full end, let them get down to that little spot called earth, and we will handle them there. Then in the midst of this one spot where we focused all the animosity of Lucifer and his household—Yes I am going to put them down there and prove that even tho they will come under the influence of Lucifer still there is enough. I will re-empower them and cover them with My Glory until the World will know that you are my sons and daughters, that is why you are here.

Now;—I think we should make it clear to everyone tonight that Waddell and Reed have discharged Col. Gale because Jewish pressure was brought on that firm to have him discharged. And tho this means thousands of dollars to Col. Gale in livelihood just from renewals which were coming to him, in the ten years of building up this area of security—-but they took a five cent stamp and dismissed him because of the Jews. This happened here in a Christian country where we are the majority—-

PYTHAGORAS (PI-THAG-ORAS)

The Life and Philosophy of Pythagoras

March 1986

 

Who was this great Philosopher who was born sometime between 600 to 590 years B.C. and who lived for about 100 years? There is many translations and pronunciations of his name, but the one in use today is Pythagoras (Pi-thag-oras). There are accounts of his conception and birth which parallels those of Jesus The Christ. Pythagoras was born at Sidon, and Jesus later at Bethlehem. The parents of both Pythagoras and The Christ were not at home when the birth occurred, for Mary as well was in Bethlehem, not in Nazareth. It is reported that both births were announced by the Holy Spirit. It was however understood that even both were called ‘The son of God’—with a different emphasis on the birth of The Christ. It was thus understood that even tho both were called the son of God’ that Jesus was God in the flesh, by how this was written, where as Pythagoras was under the influence of Divine inspiration. This is the way the old big book explains this great philosopher:——–The teachings of Pythagoras indicate that he was thoroughly acquainted with the secret instructions of the Israelites as outlined by Enoch and Job in Egypt. He traveled among the Hebrews, and was instructed by their Priests concerning the secret traditions of Moses, who was called the lawgiver of Israel. We would say that Moses was the instrument between YAHWEH and the Israelites as the law was given to Israel at Mt. Sinai.

Pythagoras traveled widely studying with the Babylonians and Chaldean masters of the mysteries. He had acquired all that was possible for him to learn of the Greek philosophers, and then went into Egypt. There at Thebes he learned of the mysteries of Isis and Osiris. He had been into Phoenicia and Syria, and even crossed Euphrates to become versed in the secret lore of the Hebrew Chaldeans who still dwelt in the vicinity of Babylon. It is reported that he went thru Media, and Persia, and on back into Hindustan where he remained for several years with the learned Hebrews called Brahmins. Ancient records carry this information, ancient records say he was called at that time the Ionian taught–YAVANCHARYA. Some say he studied with Zoroaster and that later the Essenes conducted a school chiefly for the purpose of interpreting the Py-thag-orean symbols.

The world is indebted to this man Pythagoras for the word Philosopher, with its meaning—one who is attempting to find out. I hope you noticed how he traveled backward in time to learn the ancient secrets of this race, back even to Hindustan where the Aryans established themselves after leaving the Garden area of the Tarim basin and its mountains. After he returned from his wanderings, he established a school in his home area at Crotona, in Southern Italy. Here he gathered around him a small group of disciples and instructed them in the secret wisdom of Israel which he had learned. He taught music, mathematics, and astronomy which he considered to be the triangular foundation of the arts and sciences.

Now; what did this man Pythagoras look like, and from the symbols what did he teach? The picture with this article outlines this very well. Here we see a white man with reddish brown hair and beard. He is a tall man, dressed in white with a robe draped over his shoulder which has a border of blue. He holds in his right hand a pyramid, and with his left he points to a scroll on his desk, and to the design of a circle with 1/4 of the circle marked out. We say this is referring to the 1/4 of the Universe which Lucifer controlled, under Yahweh. This is the area where Lucifer rebelled, and there influenced 1/3 of the Angels of that area to rebel with him. On the desk also is a measuring compass, a square, and a bottle like the alchemist was always working with. There is also a globe of the world on the table. And hanging over the end of the table is the design of the three squares with their checkerboard design we so often see. There is one large square, a middle sized square, and then a smaller one, and one point of the two smaller squares touching a corner of the big square, and thus forming a type of triangle. Behind him is a window looking out on the city, but at the top of the window just above his head is an outline of a triangle, and the symbols there–is of the name of the Great God of Israel that I have diagramed before for you. On the floor beside him is a stringed musical instrument, a rolled up scroll, and a picture frame with the picture of a diagram of a tree, the main trunk with 9 branches, each tip marked with a dot—-thus # 10 of the ancient Israel doctrines. In the top left corner of this picture frame is a circle with a dot in the center, and in the right top corner is a pyramid. In the lower right hand corner is a square with a triangle on top, and in the lower left hand corner is a small triangle. Beside the picture stands a two legged measuring instrument.

Now; when Pythagoras was about 60 years of age he married one of his disciples, and seven children were born to this union. His wife was

a remarkable woman, and not only inspired him during the years of his life, but after his assassination continued to put forth his doctrines. It is said that Pythagoras grew stronger as he grew older, that his physical powers increased rather then waned, and as he approached the century mark he was actually in the prime of his life. Then one came and asked for initiation into the mysteries, and on being denied admittance, then determined to destroy both the man and his philosophy. By means of false philosophy this disgruntled man turned the minds of the common people against this great philosopher and he was then assassinated. His surviving disciples sought to perpetuate his doctrines, but were persecuted on every hand, and once again we see the attempt to wipe out the ancient Israel Doctrines.

It is said that the disciples of Pythagoras never addressed him by his own name, but only as The Master, or That man. It was thought that the name Pythagoras consisted of a certain number of specially arranged letters with great sacred significance. It is said that he initiated his disciples by means of a certain formula concealed in the letters of his name.

After the death of Pythagoras his school gradually disintegrated, but some disciples carried forward his teachings, and those doctrines remained alive in the world. It is reported that one of his disciples later in life had fallen upon hard times, with sickness and poverty, and was taken in and treated kindly by an innkeeper. Before dying he traced a few mysterious signs on the door of the Inn, then told the Innkeeper not to be uneasy, for one of my brothers will pay my debt. A year later a stranger was passing that Inn, saw the sign and said to the Innkeeper:–“I am a Pythagorean–one of my brothers died here, what do I owe you on his account?” (unquote)

This we say is tied into the Biblical story of the good Samaritan, for the Samaritan is the Israel Kingdom. It was by the Grace of God that the kingdom was sent to earth, not to be a burden to the world, but a blessing. The Israel Kingdom pays her way even here in this World Order which works against her. The mysteries of the kingdom carried forward the belief in the Great God of Israel, and Pythagoras as well he should, also took a determined stand in defense of pure Monotheism, one of the entrance initiations into the mysteries brought out the fact of this belief, and if you did not believe totally in the ONE Great God of Israel you could not enter that organization called “The Mysteries”. Other subjects required were geometry, music, and astronomy, which were considered essential to a rational understanding of God, man and nature. Each student applicant to the school run by Pythagoras was tested on these subjects, if found ignorant of at least their basics, they were dismissed as not ready to learn. Pythagoras taught moderation in all things, one of his favorite statements was:—We must avoid with our utmost endeavor, and amputate with fire and sword, and by other means from the body–sickness, from the soul-sickness, and from the belly-excesses. He believed that there was no crime equal to that of anarchy. He believed that all men know what they want, but few know what they need. He warned his disciples that when they prayed, they should not ask for things for themselves because no man knows what is good for him; thus why ask for things that may be undesirable if obtained, and would only prove to be injurious. We say the spirit knows what you need better than the physical consciousness, and the spirit is in communion with the Father.

Pythagoras describes God as the ONE who is everything, the supreme mind, the cause of all things, the intelligence of all things, and the power within all things. He declared the motion of God to be circular,

that the body of God was composed of the substance of Light, and the nature of God to be composed of the substance of Truth.

Pythagoras declared that the eating of meat clouded the reasoning faculties. He did not condemn its use, or totally abstain himself, but declared that Judges should refrain from eating meat before a trial, in order that those who appeared before them might receive hones and astute decisions.

When Pythagoras decided as he often did to retire into the Temple of God for an extended time to meditate and pray he took with him a specially prepared supply of food and drink. This food consisted of the seeds of Poppy, and sesame, the skin of the Sea Onion from which the juice had been throughly extracted, the flower of daffodil, the leaves of the Mallows, and a paste of barley and Peas. These he mixed together with wild honey. For a beverage he took the seeds of the cucumber, the flower of coriander, the seeds of the mallows, and scraped cheese, meal and cream mixed together with wild honey. He claimed this was the diet of Hercules as he wandered in the desert.

The favorite method of healing for the Pythagoreans was by the aid of poultice. They knew the magic property of vast numbers of plants, knew the esteemed medicinal properties of the Sea Onion, and it is said they left volumes on that subject written for those that followed them. Pythagoras discovered that music had great therapeutic power, and he prepared special harmonies for various diseases. Used the healing verses of ‘The Odyssey, and the Iliad’ of Homer, caused the reading of them to persons suffering with certain ailments. He was opposed to surgery in all its forms, and also objected to cauterizing. He would not permit the disfigurement of the Adamic-body, for such in his estimation was a sacrilege against the dwelling place of the Gods. He taught that friendship was the truest and nearest perfect of all relationships. That friendship must exist between a man and his wife, his children, and his servants. That all bonds without friendship were shackles, and there was no virtue in their maintenance. He believed that relationships were essentially mental rather than physical, that a stranger of sympathetic intellect was closer to him than a blood relative whose viewpoint was at variance with his own.

He defined knowledge as the fruitage of mental accumulation. That wisdom was the understanding of the source, the cause of all things, that this was secured by raising the intellect to a point where it recognized the invisible manifesting outward thru the visible, and thus becoming capable of bringing itself in rapport with the spirit of things rather than their forms. Thus the ultimate source of wisdom was the Monad, this mysterious permanent atom of the Pythagoreans. Pythagoras taught that Adam-man, and the universe were both made in the image of God, thus the understanding of one predicated the knowledge of the other.

The famous Pythagorean symbol we call “pie” signified the power of choice, and was used in the mysteries as the power of choice or the

forking of the way. This symbol is made like the symbol of Aries-the Ram only smaller.

Pythagoras taught that the branch to the right of this symbol was called–Divine Wisdom, where as the one to the left was called earthly wisdom. For there does come a time when the path divides, the path on

the right takes you thru integrity, industry, and the ultimate regaining of the union with the immortals in the superior sphere. You saw this same message in the Tarot cards—this forking of the way. We see this forked stick as a symbol of life among many nations, it was placed in the desert to indicate the presence of water, and water is the symbol of spirit-truth. This symbol is also seen at times as two female figures, representing two ways of thought in religious matters, for instance, one of these females is veiled with the white robe of the temple thus urging the student to enter those halls of learning. The other female is decked with jewels, symbolizing earthly treasures and false light which leads the individual into dissipation and error. We think here of the woman on the back of the Red Beast in the book of Revelation.

As to the transmigration of the soul, to those not believing in the Israel doctrine, or in Jesus the Savior, then they might become confused and turn to reincarnation thinking, but Pythagoras was teaching resurrection and regeneration, that the spiritual nature in Adam-man would be revealed in a new body. He also taught that each specie of creation, that each specie had what he called a seal given it of God, and that the physical form of each was the impression of the seal upon the wax of physical substance. Thus each body was stamped with the dignity of its divinely given pattern. He believed that ultimately Adam-man would reach a state where he would function once more in a body of spirit which would be juxta-position to his physical form at all times, this would be as he reached the 8th., sphere and was able to ascend into the realm of the immortals, where by Divine Birthright he belonged. (unquote)

We believe and Dr. Swift taught this same message, that YAHWEH the Great Creator begat a race for his kingdom. That Adam and Eve the earthly kingdom in their beginning lost their aura in the fall, and the light of their begotten spirit went off the physical body, at least a portion of it retreated to the inside of the body. As to the others of creation as they also fell under the spell of Lucifers rebellion, those with the created spirit lost their type of light as well. But the promise to Adam was that thru the resurrection and regeneration then the people of the kingdom would be restored to their divine birthright, where as those of the created spirits they also will be restored to their beginning perfection. And those that the Father (spirit) did not plant in earth will be dealt with as the Father has provided in this coming Era of regeneration and restoration. The Administration of the kingdom of YAHWEH in earth will start many wonderful events.

Pythagoras taught that everything in nature was divisible into three parts, that no one could become truly wise who did not view every problem as being diagrammatically triangular. He said:–“establish the triangle and the problem is 2/3 solved, for all things consist of 3’s. He divided the world then into three parts, –supreme, the superior, and the inferior — thus”—YAHWEH–the kingdom–and the world, or that which is both true and false.

Pythagoras in his explanation of the numbers considered the digits one and two as super mundane spheres, then #3 was the triangle and #4 is the square, and you then have number 10 the great number of all things, the archetype of the universe, or as the ancient Doctrines of Israel

proclaim, the completion of the kingdom. The Pythagoreans were to maintain that symmetrical solids were thus of great importance, and since a solid must have an equal number of faces meeting at each of its angles, these faces must be equal, regular polygons, or figures whose sides and angles are all equal, and there is only 5 such solids, the middle number of from 1 to 10 of the mysteries. Thus they taught that the material universe was composed of 4 elements which were fire, water, earth and air, then add the Deity of the Only One, and by these elements HE created the Universe. The earth particles were cubical since the cube possessed greater stability. The fire particles were the lightest solid thus tetrahedral. Water particles were listed as between the two and called octahedral. Then there were the mystical solids, the most difficult of all solids to construct, and the accurate drawing of the Pentagon necessitating a rather elaborate application of the Pythagoras great theorem. Plato put it this way—-This the Deity employed in tracing the plan of the universe. (see your diagram).

Pythagoras was then a very illuminated man, he is said to have caused things to happen by the exercise of mental influence. He was gifted with second sight, being able to see things at a distance, and accurately describing incidents that had not yet come to pass.

Now; there are 39 symbolic sayings of Pythagoras and ten of them are listed here in the old big book. These are said to be with a hidden meaning which you are to search for. I will list them for you and give you a meaning as I see it, and then you see what you think.

#1—Declining from the public ways–walk in unfrequented paths.——we say that those who desire wisdom must seek it in ways not thought of by the world order.

#2—Govern your tongue before all things, follow the Gods——-We say:-sometimes your words instead of representing–do misrepresent you, so if in doubt as to what to say, be silent, and follow the teaching of those called Gods (Psalm:82) for the kingdom is to rule and reign.

#3—The wind blowing * adore the sound——–We say the fiat of God is heard in the voice of the elements. All things in nature manifest thru harmony, rhythm, and order, which are the attributes of Deity.

#4—Assist a man in raising a burden, but do not assist him in laying it down.—–We say assist anyone in their work for the kingdom in any way that you can, but do not assist them if they are backing away from the truth of the kingdom and its cross. Never assist anyone who is trying to evade their responsibilities.

#5—Speak not about Pythagoric concerns without light.—–We say that those of the world order should not attempt to interpret the mysteries of God for you, the secrets of science and such, for no one should without spiritual and intellectual illumination be able to do this.

#6—Having departed from your house, turn not back for the furies will be your attendants.——-We say anyone who begins a search for truth, and having attained part of the mystery then becomes discouraged, or attempts to return to his former ways of vice and ignorance will suffer exceedingly for it is better to know nothing about the mysteries of God, than to learn a little and turn from it. After all the warning of the end of this situation is that it will be with suddenness.

#7—Nourish the cock, but sacrifice it not; for it is sacred to the sun and the moon.—–We say that there is a two fold lesson here. Adam-man is sometimes pictured as a White Rooster. We will tell you this in a later tape. But the body of Adam-man is sacred to the sun (the symbol of YAHWEH), to the moon (the symbol of the earthly kingdom) and should be guarded, for this body is the temple of the Holy-Spirit. And that holy spirit is the most precious possession which Adam-man possesses.

#8—Receive not a swallow into your house——-We say that the seeker of truth should not allow drifting or small thoughts, after all it is the Eagle and the Phoenix which carries the message. Therefore surround yourself with inspired thinkers, and conscientious workers for the kingdom, or you will be seeking the easy way, and never reach for the heights in your thoughts and mind.

#9—Offer not your right hand easily to anyone——-We say that the right hand represents authority and truth, thus offer not truth to those who are incapable of receiving it, or understanding it. The right hand represents authority –YAHWEH who raise’s those who have fallen into ignorance. Many of the unregenerate do not desire wisdom, and they will cut off the hand that is extended in kindness–to those–the completion or #10 alone can effect the redemption of the ignorant.

#10—When rising from the bed clothes roll them together and obliterate the impression of the body.——We say to those who have awakened from their sleep of ignorance, to then eliminate from their recollection all memory of their former spiritual darkness. This is so that those following in your footsteps will not stop at some point and use some error to keep someone in ignorance. Always stress the fact that there is much more to learn. After all there is this “WAY”, and it is to the cross and the understanding as to why HE hung there. This “WAY” leads you backward to knowledge and forward to completion. You must come to this point in understanding. The CROSS is there–and you then realize that you cannot back away from this knowledge, for it is the only way which leads thru this Great Mosaic to HIM.

According to Pythagoras the study of astronomy was essential in understanding the mysteries. The knowledge he thus acquired enabled Him to make predictions requiring 2000 years to check, and tells us why

Plato and Aristotle so highly esteemed the knowledge of the ancient mysteries. Platonic astronomy taught that physical astronomy was the science of shadows, from behind it in Philosophical astronomy was the science of realities—thus thru the study of nature you learn to look beyond to the real meaning found -in the spirit.

Pythagorean Mathematics–the key to this seems to have been almost lost since the death of Pythagoras–to this science, however fragments found thru the years tell us that this knowledge does exist. The 47th. theorem is stated this way:—in a right angled triangle, the square described on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares described on the other two sides. The picture here is of three sizes of squares, their points touching so as to form a triangle. The Egyptians called the triangle the universal nature, and this triangle is of course 1/2 of a rectangle. The triangle is of course a figure of three angles, and three is the first number composed of both an even and an odd number or 1+2=3. Then 4 is the square whose side is equal to the even #2, but 5 being generated out of 3 and 2 is still more important. And out of the simplest lines the whole secret emerges. Here then is pictured a youth, a man and a girl. Here we see YAHWEH with Adam and Eve–the circle complete for the development of the kingdom. Everything moves out from YAHWEH in a circle, thus beginning and end is controlled. But the triangle was looked upon as the beginning of the generations, the development of the kingdom. And this is a right angled triangle of unequal sides, one right angled and two acute angles. The three squares that form the triangle are marked in the checker-board fashion, but the squares are all in blue instead of the black and white signifying this started in the heavens. The black and white squares signify the world as yet under both light and darkness, thus still the battle between the children of darkness and the child of light. This triangle has sides marked 3-4-5, add them and this is the mystery of numbers in symbolism or the divine #12.

The 47th., theorem was always marked in close connection with the “master builders” art and was referred to as the carpenter’s theorem. It is believed that many of the complicated mathematical details of the Great Pyramid were based upon the now unknown applications of this theorem. This is also the key to the relationship of the three major parts of Adam-man which are spirit, soul and body. To the Alchemists this 47th., proposition sets forth the proper proportions of salt, sulphur and mercury necessary to the formation of the Philosopher’s stone.

By the time of Albert Pike, many things of the mysteries had been lost. Albert Pike the great Masonic symbolist of Free Masonry admitted that he did not understand the symbolism of the cube, the square, the rectangle and the circle. He seemed to realize that different numbers were in themselves symbolic, but decided that Pythagoras concealed the meanings of his symbols with a veil that was impenetrable, without his oral explanations. We say that the reason he could not understand is because he expected those without the capacity to explain the scriptures, and these symbols.

Here in the old big book they have a chart, to use in trying to find the numerical power of words. #1 is the names of the Hebrew letters. #2 is the Samaritan letters, #3 is the Hebrew and Chaldean letters, and #4 the numerical equivalent of the letters. #5 is capital and small Greek letters, and #6 is the letters marked as those brought by Greece from Phoenicia by Cadmus. #7 is the names of the Greek letters, and #8 is the nearest English equivalents to the Hebrew, Greek and Samaritan letters. A note at the bottom says:–when used at the end of a word, the Hebrew TAU has the numerical value of 400. The Capital Greek letter for TAU of the Hebrew is the symbol of the Pythagoreans, and the same as the sign of Aries of the Zodiac, the Ram the Great shepherd of the sheep.

I noticed that the writers here in the old big book were having trouble with their translations. They say that they must go back into the most ancient tongues for their seeking for the numerical value of names, but then they try to come up with the Divine name of Jehovah which only adds up to #26—and that is not the divine name, and the Israel doctrine of the name adds up to #72. They also come up with the #9 as the basic number, where as the Pythagoreans of course used #10 in their calculations.

The Pythagoreans demonstrated that arithmetic was prior to astronomy, for the latter is dependent upon both geometry and music. The size, form and motion of the Celestial bodies is determined by the use of geometry, their harmony and rythm by the use of music. Therefore if astronomy be removed neither geometry or music be injured, but if geometry and music be eliminated then astronomy is destroyed. Thus arithmetic is prior to all, it is primary and fundamental. In numbers there is then both even and odd, for some are divided and some cannot be divided, for it always remains indivisible. It thus becomes the center of all things. Of the other odd numbers, if divided into two parts, then one will be an odd number and one an even number. The Pythagoreans called #1 evenly odd, and considered it both male and female. Audaum was thus considered as both female and male, and YAHWEH was also considered as ONE and masculine, but considered as comforter or holy spirit as having the compassion of the female. The Pythagoreans then called #1 the supreme Deity, and #2 was called audacity because it is the first number to separate itself from the ONE. They gave the symbol of the Sun to the Supreme ONE, and the symbol of the moon to #2 as did the ancient Egyptians. They considered #2 in its separation from #1 then as being both male and female, thus Adam and Eve, the seed for the kingdom in earth, and said that later #1 would be crucified in earth where the kingdom now resided. He would be crucified between two thieves because of the sins of Adam-man. #3 they called wisdom, it was the nature of 1+2, thus Adam-man under guidance of the ONE would organize the present, foresee the future, and benefit from the experience of the past. #3 is thus the cause of wisdom, understanding, knowledge, music, geometry, astronomy, the science of the Celestial and the terrestrial. The symbol of #3 is the triangle, Since #3 is made up of 1+2 then this symbolizes the fact that YAHWEH gave birth to His worlds out of Himself. He is termed ‘The MONAD’ having the nature of both male and female. #4 is termed the perfect number or symbolically it is the parent of progeny. YAHWEH then called the number of numbers–because 1+2+3+4=10. #4 then becomes the first geometric solid and symbolically they say of the soul of Adam-man, and consists of mind, science, opinion, and sense, all provided by #1 for the completion of the picture of number 10.

When considering the colors–then #3 represents the primary colors, and major planets. While #4 represents the secondary colors, the minor planets, and one compliments the other. Thus from the first triangle (YAHWEH) comes the seven spirits, symbolized by a triangle, and a square—these together formed the ancient Masonic apron.

#5 is thus 3+2–the symbol of light, the balancer, and between 1 and 10, only 5 and 6 when multiplied by themselves represent and retain their original number as the last figure in their products. #5 sometimes is referred to as the High Priest of the Mysteries, the basis of vitality and life. Thus the 5 pointed star was then the symbol of vitality and health.

The Philosophers used the symbol of the Dragon as the evil of earth, and as they went forth to slay the Dragon they were in symbolism declaring victory over the kingdom of darkness, the victory of the spiritual nature over the material nature of the world order.

The four elements of earth were thus fire, air, water, and ether, and were symbolized in early biblical writings as the four rivers which poured out of the garden of Eden, yet under the control of the Almighty spirit or #5 of the mysteries. And carried further, the body of Audaum was formed from the elements, which are now translated dust of the earth, and we then say:—“ashes to ashes, dust to dust” but there is so much more to that picture.

#6 represented the creation according to the prophets of the ancient mysteries. Those created and given a spirit–a created spirit—not a begotten one as was given to Adam and Eve. Number six then represents time–a time measure of duration, and in this time period, here in the world with both good and evil Adam-man would establish the kingdom, thus this number is a balancer, a number also that contains immortality—for when considering the different races established on this earth thru time and eternity—Adam is listed as #6 who is to reach the perfection of #7 in his work toward immortality–the kingdom in place.

#7 according to Pythagoreans was called — “Worthy of veneration.” It was held to be the number of Faith, or religion because Adam-man was said to be controlled by seven Celestial spirits, to whom it was proper for him to make offerings. We then remember this is the seven fold nature of God, not 7 different spirits which are symbolized by the Rainbow. Today they are using the rainbow as the symbol of the New Age of Lucifer’s victory, thus this symbol has gone almost full circle, and now stands to be corrected as Lucifer’s satanic nature is erased. #7 was called the number of life– thus a baby born in its seventh month of embryonic life usually lives. We know #7 as Adam’s number in completion, in the ancient mysteries. One author called #7 the motherless virgin, but out of the crown of the head of the Father–the Monad. The key words associated with #7 are fortune, occasion, custody, control, government, dreams, voices, sounds and that which leads all things to their end. We have now from the Pythagoreans given you more meanings for the numbers of 1 thru 10 of the ancient Israel doctrines. And they then explain further:—that among many ancient nations #7 was a sacred number. That the Elohim of the Hebrews was #7, that spirit, mind and soul descended into the world, then #4 –of the mystic nature of Adam-man consisting of the 3 fold spiritual body which became a four fold material form, symbolized by the cube, which has 6 surfaces with a mysterious point or connection within. Thus in the midst of Adam-man is the father of directions, the dimensions of the distances, the maker of

the law, with the sevenfold spirit. —Here then in the old big book they do explain #7 without acknowledging that this represents Adam-man as we have understood the picture, but they do confirm what we have learned before from the mystery schools of Enoch and Jobs time.

#8 carries the same message as we have told you before, only under the guidance of the Pythagoreans they explain that this number was the first cube which had 8 corners, and was the only evenly-even number under 10. That it can be divided into 4’s, into 2’s and each 2 into 1’s, therefore reestablishing the Monad. Among the key words associated with #8 was a mysterious number, associated with the Mysteries in Greece, and called the little Holy number.

#9 was the first square of an odd number (3×3). It was associated with failure, and short because it falls short of perfection which is #10. In other words #9 is not associated with #7–it means judgement, and is considered associated with #6, is in fact an inverted 6, a part of the world order, thus judgement on anything which hinders the kingdom.

#10 –according to the Pythagoreans is the greatest of numbers, not only because it is the 10 dots (the tetractys) but because it understands all arithmetic, and harmonic proportions. Pythagoras said that #10 is the nature of all numbers, because all nations must reckon with it, and when they arrive at it, they return to the Monad. #10 is called both heaven and the world because it is a perfect number, it is because the former includes the Latter. Because it is applied to those things relating to age, power, faith, necessity and the power of memory. It is called unwearied, and tireless, thus associated with the ONE God, and to a lesser degree with Atlas, for he carried the world —or the numbers on his shoulders.

Now; after all we have learned from this article—I had to laugh at the last paragraph in this article. I thought of all the knowledge our ancestors possessed—way back there, and this paragraph reads (quote):— We believe that the so called decimal system can probably be traced back to the time when it was customary to count on the fingers, this being the most primitive calculating device, and still in use today among many aboriginal people. (unquote)— We then believe that the so called intellectuals of today are in for a surprise when they learn of the knowledge possessed by our ancient forefathers—clear back to Adam.

Now; lets see what the Pythagorean Theory of music and color has to reveal. As we have told you before NASA will be studying as to where the sounds are coming from–out in space. We are sure that the ancients knew more about this then we do today.

Music and color play their parts in life, and only when everything is in Harmony can things be beautiful. Here in the old big book the writers think the philosophers gained their knowledge of the philosophic and therapeutic aspects of music from Hermes, who we say was Enoch. Even Plato spoke of the songs and poetry of ancient Egypt, and said that only Gods, or Godlike men could have composed them. In the mysteries the “Lyre” was regarded as the secret symbol of the human constitution. The body of the instrument was said to represent the physical form, the strings the nerves, and the musician the spirit. Playing upon the nerves, the spirit thus created the harmonies of normal functioning which forever became discords if the nature of Adam-man is defiled. All the Adamites down thru the ages, to the Greeks, employed both vocal and instrumental music in their religious ceremonials to compliment their poetry and drama. The pagans also used music in their religious ceremonies, but the type of instrument and music that harmonizes with the type of nature of the individual can be altogether different.

Pythagoras is said to be the one who raised the art of music to its true dignity by discovering the scale. I would say that he had learned the Divine theory of music from the Priests of the mysteries, but he did develop it more and left a record which they were finding as they prepared this old big book. Pythagoras left a diagram showing in circles the distances between Earth, moon, Mercury, Venus, the sun, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, and the sphere of the stars. The distances are whole or half tones, and they total 6 octaves.

The key to harmonic ratio’s is hidden in the famous tetractys, or the triangle of dots of your diagram. The first four numbers 1 thru 4 reveal the intervals of the octaves. To the Pythagoreans, music was one of the dependencies of the Divine science of mathematics, and its harmonies were inflexibly controlled by mathematical proportions. That mathematics demonstrated the exact method by which God established and maintained the universe. Thus numbers therefore preceded harmony since it was the immutable law that governs all harmonic proportions. Pythagoras assigned a tone to the spheres, he assigned different colors and forms, thus his diagrams, and in all he followed the program and story of the ancient mysteries. In fact he brought back to the people the love of true music, which effects the senses, and emotions of different people. The type of music which influences the mind of Adam-man as well as his body is called musical medicine. Pythagoras maintained that the music of the stars was as from stringed instruments. In fact he used the Song of Solomon sung to the accompaniment of the Lyre as musical medicine. It is said that while observing the stars one night that he encountered a young man befuddled with strong drink, and mad with jealousy who was piling faggots around the door of his mistress, with the intention of burning her house. He noticed that a flutist was playing a short distance away, the music a strange and wild rhythm then being played so much in Greece. He induced the magician to change his music to a slow rhythmic type and the intoxicated youth immediately became composed, and gathering up his bundles of faggots quietly returned to his own home.

Pythagoras believed that the introduction of a new and presumably different scale would endanger the future of a whole nation, and that it was not possible to alter a key without shaking the very foundations of the state. He maintained that music which ennobled the mind was of a

far higher kind than that which merely appealed to the senses, he instructed that it was the paramount duty of the legislature to suppress all music that was not pure and dignified, that bold and stirring melodies were for men, and gentle soothing ones for women. The greatest care was also to be taken in the selection of instrumental music, because the absence of words rendered its significance doubtful, and it was difficult to foresee whether it would exercise upon the people a benign of baneful influence.

Even today martial music is used with telling effect in times of war, and religious music while no longer developed in accordance with the ancient history and theory, still profoundly influences the emotions of the laity. (unquote)

Now: then can you believe that types of music has been used against the kingdom in an effort to destroy young minds? Dr. Swift told us long ago of the program of the enemy to send to Africa and develop the jungle beat into American music which brought about what we witnessed in the 60’s Do you now understand what happened to –for instance Elvis Presley? A young man was taken and schooled in the jungle beat, and body movements which appealed to the senses, and he became a rock and roll star. But in the process his body was destroyed from the constant pressure of foreign rhythm, and he was kept going with the aide of prescription drugs from his own doctor. But his body in a few short years was destroyed. But the music stayed and has been used thru the years, even tho it is out of harmony with the music of the spheres. Back thru the years before Pythagoras—and even before Adam—this music of the spheres was known. They believed that the heavenly bodies joined in a cosmic chant as they moved in stately manner across the sky. Job then describes a time—“When the stars of the morning sang together,” and then in the play—–“The Merchant of Venice”–the author of this Shakespearian play states:–“There’s not the smallest orb which thou beholdest but in his motion, like an Angel sings.”

Today we have not only lost the Pythagorean system of Celestial music, but have no idea of the influence, or the effect of being in perfect rhythmic harmony, The Pythagoreans believed that there was a cord that stretched between heaven and earth, we would say this cord is spirit, but if you hang on to this cord you will not follow after the jungle beat of the pagans. When the music and harmony and rhythm which you inherited is maintained there is peace in your mind. Pythagoras maintained that the first division of this rhythm was from the sphere of fixed stars, the Zodiac, then thru the planets which are identical to the candlestick of the Hebrews. The sun is the center as the main stem and the three planets on each side is the symbolism of the candlesticks. All things in Divine order, utter their message, and anyone in the grasp of their music is thinking of heavenly things, and not stirred by the movement of the motion of the senses.

The Pythagoreans believed that all creatures were eternally singing the praises of the creation until Lucifer rebelled. Now man fails to hear the divine melodies because his soul is emersed in the illustration of material existence. When Adam-man liberates himself from the bondage of the lower world with its sense limitations, then once again the music of the spheres will be audible to him as it was in the golden age. Harmony recognizes harmony, and when Adam-man’s soul regains its true estate, it will not only hear the Celestial choir but also join with it in an everlasting anthem or praise to that Eternal God controlling the infinite number of parts and conditions of the universe.

To those who believe in evolution and do not acknowledge God as the creator, then they declare that there is only good and evil–no God–things just evolve. But the ancient Israel Priests understood that even architecture was linked to music. They understood the vibrations of the Universe. In fact certain sound chambers were constructed in their temples so that the reverberations made the entire building sway. The wood and stone used in the erection of these sacred building swayed, after eventually becoming so thoroughly permeated with the sound vibrations of those religious ceremonies that when struck they would repeat the same tone repeatedly impressed in their substance by the rituals.

Now; when your soul is out of harmony with the Divine nature, then Satanic thoughts more easily enter in, for you have lost your protection, and don’t even realize it. This is why we have had so much trouble with our young people, and even in families trying to resist, for this music has stayed and been used thru the years, and it is totally out of harmony with the music of the spheres. If the harmony of your begotten spirit is upset, the whole body will be in discord, and the Adamite does not then think straight. Isn’t it strange that the enemy understands this so much better than we as a race do now?

Now; color also plays a great part in our life as well as music, thus there is a philosophy of color. Light reveals the Glories of the Eternal world. It gives beauty, is the analyzer, the truth teller, the exposer of shame, for it shows everything as they really are. Without the influence of color, and light, vegetables, animals, and human life must immediately perish from off the earth. Light is filled with its component colors, and the more deeply we penetrate into its inner laws, the more we realize what a marvelous storehouse this ‘white light’ really is, for it is a source of power to vitalize, to heal, refine, and delight mankind. Light really is a rate of vibration causing certain reactions upon the Optic nerve. Few realize how they are walled in by the limitations of the sense perceptions. Not only is there a great deal more to Light than anyone has ever seen, but there are also unknown forms of light which no optical equipment will ever register. There are unnumbered colors which cannot be seen as well as sound which cannot be heard, and odors which cannot be smelt, or substances which cannot be tasted, and substances which cannot be felt. We are thus surrounded by a super-sensible universe which we know nothing about, because the sense perception in ourselves has not been developed sufficiently to respond to the rates of vibration of which the Universe is composed. Even back on Atlantas the people realized that colors are vibrations off of substances. They realized the relationship of color to the nervous system, and yet today we seem to have lost this knowledge, while thinking that our ancestors, and even those before them were illiterate.

The picture with this article is of the ancient of days, he has a triple crown, and on the crown a green globe, and on the globe a white cross with a Red rose on the cross arms of the cross. This figure is from the waist up surrounded by a rainbow. The lower half of the picture is the same, as it is a reflection as tho he was looking into the sea. From his mouth comes a stream –in fact seven streams of the primary colors. In the caption He is termed the God of Light and Reflections. Here it is pictured that out of the great sea of Eternity rises the head and shoulders of the ancient Holy One. Thus the reflection of deity is ever visible in nature, but man often mistakes the shadow for the substance. As the Universe is the reflection of the Holy One of Israel, so the human body of Adam-man is the reflection or inverted image of His Spirit. The Holy ONE between his hands holds the interlocking triangles which portray to us the spirit and material elements which constitute the nature of Adam-man.

The seven streams of color from his mouth are said to be the 7 spirits before the throne in Revelation 3:1—but these are not seven different spirits as we have told you, for they symbolize the seven fold spirit of the Holy One of Israel. HE is the ONE who became the Rose upon the cross.

Incidentally while speaking about the Rose on the cross–Jeanette came up with some interesting facts about the Rose, in fact the Primrose. For prim means, first, of course, and there are today many varieties of the Rose, but she found that this Primrose looks exactly like the Rose of the “Rose Cross” organization, and the replica of King Arthur’s table Rose. Then here is listed one variety of this primrose that is obvious, for this is the German strain of the Primrose called, Obconica, and the colors of this special garden Rose are: –Red, White and Blue. In the Strong’s concordance the word Rose means—WORD/ thus does the Rose on the cross mean simply:—that we as a people stand upon HIS WORD? Since the Rose of Sharon depicts a special people, in fact–Elect, Servants, we think you here have a very direct and easy to understand explanation of the symbolism of the Rose in the center of the cross bars of the Cross. THE WORD symbolized as a Rose—on the cross making an atonement–paying the price for you and for me and the whole world. HE thus is the WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIGHT. And since He allowed Lucifer to rebel for a purpose, then to correct that situation HE became the ROSE of symbolism.

Now; in the Pythagorean mysteries –in symbolism then the seven primary colors from the mouth of the Ancient of Days, signify that the color spectrum was extracted from the “White Light” of the Supreme Deity. And all we have been telling you of this arrangement as to the setting forth of the mutual relationship of the planets, the colors, the musical notes, all this is simply to show you that the creation was perfect. That when you acknowledge that YAHWEH-YAHSHUA translated today as Jesus the Christ, is the Eternal God of Israel, you then begin to see the harmony of all things in the Great Mosaic, and to understand that if you are out of harmony with his purpose then your mind is more easily disturbed by humanism, evolution, Rosicrusianism, and other doctrines which cannot hold the answer, because they do not have –“THE WORD THIS GREAT WHITE LIGHT.”
