The 7th Day is Coming
We know from Malachi 3:6 that the Eternal Creator never changes. Therefore, the original instructions, which include The Everlasting Agreement, make up His true original Torah. These instructions exist in His sacred place and were placed into effect with prior creations such as the Malakim/angels. They were then reiterated to the patriarchs beginning with Adam and down through the Hebrew lineage to Yehshua as well. This means that there has never been another set of instructions other than His Torah to ever exist whether prior to this earth’s creation or since. Thus, all creations rest upon the foundations of Torah. Consequently, as we explore this we will fine that His Torah is the very essence of The Eternal Creator Himself, which lies not only in the creation that surrounds mankind but within us as well.
As the Essenes Scrolls plainly depict, we are of both the Earthy Mother (flesh) and Heavenly Father (soul)…this is earth and heaven!
“And your breath, your blood, your flesh shall be one with the breath, the blood and the flesh of the Earthly Mother, that your spirit also may become one with the spirit of your Heavenly Father.” (Essenes Scrolls)
Additionally consider Yehshua’s reiteration of Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18, summing all of Torah up into two instructions. For those who miss it, The Everlasting Agreement is very much a part of the following verse taken out of the New Testament Commentaries. In order to love your neighbor as yourself it must be understood that all souls with the lifeblood are intertwined and therefore to kill or harm any would be in direct violation of The Everlasting Agreement.
Matt 22:37, 39 “ To love Aheyeh, your Eternal Creator with all of your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind… And to love your neighbor as yourself.”
Take note that the first Torah instruction deals with the soul’s relationship to our “Heavenly” Creator while the second with our “earthly” relationships. Therefore it is evident that both heaven and earth are within us. I submit that our Creator is the absolute only source to the soul that enables us to live out through the flesh that which is in the soul. This would be His love, which He places within our souls. However, first one must overcome the earthly flesh and open up their soul to reunite to its Creator. Then His thoughts and His ways become known to our soul, and we are no longer bound by earth but “heaven” dwells within. This you know if you have heard the small still voice of your soul’s Creator.
We will be progressing through the first part of Genesis where creation is recorded not only in the natural, the flesh, but embodied as well within the supernatural, our souls. It should be noted here, as found within this Art Scroll edition of the Tanak, that whenever the word “living” or “living creature” is used it has been translated from the Hebrew words “nephesh chayah” meaning breath of life or life breathers and denotes an immortal soul. Therefore, it should be understood that all living creatures in fact do possess an immortal living soul of life and are equal to humans as such. Ecclesiastes 3:19 states that man and beast have the same spirit, concluding that, “man has no superiority over beast…” We must be careful to not allow ourselves to be deceived into thinking, as some have been lead to believe; that human souls are different in any way then that of the living creatures we share the earth with. With that said, let us begin…
“ 1 In the beginning of The Eternal’s creating the heavens and the earth - 2 when the earth was astonishingly empty, with darkness upon the surface of the deep; and the Divine Presence hovered upon the surface of the waters - 3 The Eternal said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light. 4 The Eternal saw that the light was good, and The Eternal separated between light and the darkness. 5 The Eternal called to the light: (Yom) ‘Day’, and the darkness He called: (Ereb) ‘Night’. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
6 The Eternal said, 'Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it separate between water and water.' 7 So The Eternal made the firmament, and separated between the waters, which were beneath the firmament and the waters, which were above the firmament. And it was so. 8 The Eternal called the firmament Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
9 The Eternal said: 'Let the waters beneath the heaven be gathered together into one area, and let the dry land appear. 10 And The Eternal called to the dry land: “Earth”, and to the gathering of waters He called: “ Seas”. And The Eternal saw it was good. 11 The Eternal said: 'Let the earth sprout vegetation: herbage yielding seed, fruit trees yielding fruit, each containing its own seed on the earth.’ And it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth vegetation: herbage yielding seed after its kind, and trees yielding fruit, each containing seed after its kind. And The Eternal saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
14 The Eternal said, 'Let there be luminaries in the firmament of the heaven to separate between the day and the night; and they will serve as signs, and for festivals, and for days and years; 15 and they shall serve as luminaries in the firmament of the heaven to shine upon the earth. And it was so. 16 And The Eternal made the two great luminaries: the greater luminary to dominate the day, and the lesser luminary to dominate the night, the stars. 17 And The Eternal set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 to dominate by day and by night, and to separate between the light and the darkness. And The Eternal saw it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
20 The Eternal said: 'Let the waters teem with teeming living creatures, and the fowl that fly about the earth across the expanse of the heavens.' 21 And The Eternal created the great sea-giants, and every living being that creeps, with which the waters teem after their kinds, and all winged fowl every kind. And The Eternal saw it was good. 22 The Eternal blessed them, saying, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, but the fowl shall increase on the earth.' 23 And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.
24 The Eternal said, 'Let the earth bring forth living creatures, each according to its kind; animal, and creeping thing, and beast of the land each after to its kind.' And it was so. 25 The Eternal made the beast of the earth according to its kind, and the animal according to its kind, and every creeping being of the ground to its kind. And The Eternal saw that it was good.
26 The Eternal said, 'Let us make Man in Our image, after Our likeness. They shall rule over the fish of sea, the birds of the sky and over the animal, the whole earth, and every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.' 27 So, The Eternal created Man in His image, in the image of The Eternal He created him, male and female, He created them.
28 The Eternal blessed them and The Eternal said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it, and rule over the over the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every living thing that moves on the earth.’
29 The Eternal said, 'Behold, I have given you every herbage yielding seed that is on the surface of the entire earth, and every tree that has seed-yielding fruit; it will be yours for food. 30 And to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the heaven, and to everything that moves on the earth, with which there is a living soul, every green herb is for food.' 31 And The Eternal saw all that He had made, and behold it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
1 Thus the heaves and the earth were finished, and all their array. 2 By the seventh day The Eternal completed His work, which He had done; and He abstained on the seventh day, which He had done. 3 The Eternal blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it because on it He abstained from all His work, which He had done.
4 These are the products of the heaven and the earth when they were created on the day that The Eternal made earth and heaven.
If we look close right from the very start, we will recognize the condition of humanity itself. It can be seen that just as the earth was in its inception, “astonishingly empty with darkness” that this too is applicable to each and every human. That which lies over the deep waters also resonates within us; we are the housing of His soul. It is not too far a stretch to see the emptiness that plagues the immortal soul within humanity as they attempt to fill the dark void within. This is so evident whether it is striving to self-medicate with substance abuse, engaging in multiple sexual partners looking for “love”, or gaining wealth and career success to satisfy ones feeling of status fulfillment. All are simply unsatisfactorily attempts at filling a void that no man or activity can fill. Only The Eternal Creator Himself has the power to drive out all our dark emptiness and be the source of true light.
2 Sam 22:29 “For You are my lamp, Aheyeh; Aheyeh illuminates my darkness.”
Psalms 18:29 “For it is You who will light my lamp, Aheyeh, The Eternal One, illuminates my darkness.”
Can you see that until we desire our Eternal Creator with all our being how our soul lays waiting and wanting? As we will soon discover, without its Creator, illumination or awakening of the soul is out of reach and empty darkness prevails. At this point it must be understood that the soul is not human because once the body dies the soul remains. However, this does not need to plague mankind, for He hovers (the vibration of His frequency) over the waters. Allow me to point out here that there are the waters that are physically on the earth, and the waters that make up our body. The latter can be viewed as His frequency vibration communing with our soul’s frequency vibration, His still small voice. This would be the heaven within us. He need only speak it, and it is so! But, as noted in the following verse, we must possess hearts “sincerely with Him”. This is not simply happening at the mention of some repeated prayer or phrase. To be “with Him” denotes a continual relationship based on His love in us as mentioned previously.
2 Chr 16:9 “For Aheyeh’s eyes roam throughout the land, to strengthen those whose hearts are sincerely with Him.”
Continuing on with Genesis 1:4-5, light is put into place and separated out to be “Yom and Ereb” or as we say, “daytime and nighttime”. We will be discussing the many facets represented in the natural and supernatural by this concept of Yom and Ereb.
The 24-hour day
Just as we refer to each physical 24-hour time period as daylight, twilight/dusk, night, and dawn there are similar equivalents in Hebrew. They are Yom, Ereb, Lilah, and Bohker. Now, when we say daylight, or shorten it to “day”, we mean specifically a physical portion of daylight hours present in one 24-hour time period. However, the most predominant difference between our term “day” and the Hebrew is that “Yom” needs to be understood as a non-specified period of time and simply not limited to either the time of daylight hours within or the entire 24-hour period of time.
This is where you are going to need to take a breath and put on your “out of the box” thinking cap as we consider Yom in a several more “heavenly” contexts. How do these time periods speak to our eternal soul?
Day and Night journey of an individual soul
If Yom is a period of time then it may refer to a day, lifetime, workweek, soul journey, and/or communal time of humanity on earth until the Greater Exodus. We have already seen it as simply daytime. If we look at it in the context of our personal soul journey then a Yom would be the period of time following Bohker, just after our souls have been awakened. This would be the beginning of our soul’s journey, the process of continual seeking and reuniting of the soul back to its Creator. Thus we will persist until our Yom is complete and whole. Unlike most Christian understanding, nowhere is Yom limited to one human lifetime, in fact there is documented evidence that it is not.
It will be that upon the soul’s completed reconciliation with The Eternal Creator, and only then, that Yom’s setting sun will give way to the peace and tranquility of Ereb, i.e. twilight or dusk. This is a time of rest in the presence of The Eternal One! But what of Lilah you ask? What need does an eternal soul, which has completed its journey back to its Creator, have to with darkness?
Zechariah 14:7 “It will be a unique day; it will be known as Aheyeh’s [day], neither day nor night, but it will happen towards evening time there will be light.”
All in a Week’s Time
Since we are discussing Yom in association with our individual soul journey, let’s jump down and include the verses of Genesis 2:2-3 as well while expounding on the previous thought. Consider for a moment specifically the workweek and its equivalent, the 7 days of creation. This would be 6 days of work with 1 day to rest. In the physical earthly concept we all know this period of time, but now expand our view to a little different aspect of one’s individual soul journey back to The Creator.
Isaiah 55:6 “Seek Aheyeh when He can be found; call upon Him when He is near.”
This is His sanctioned period of time not ours. The days of creation where accomplished in 6 days and that is all we will get, His pre-determined Yom. This would be the specific time “when He can be found”, which would be prior to the 7th day. Be certain of this, the 7th day IS coming. It will be our Yom of rest upon the completion of the soul journey, i.e. Shabbat. Our hope of the Greater Exodus! One must understand that it is His desire for us to complete our soul journey. Now just prior to the dawn, Bohker, of the Shabbat we see Ereb bring down the sun unto Lilah, the time of Jacob’s trouble and gnashing of teeth. This is why this author does not originate the observing of Shabbat at sunset. The Ereb and Lilah of Jacob’s troubles does not begin my time of rest, but rather the peace that is to follow, The Greater Exodus! That can only be Bohker, the dawning of the final Yom, the 7th day, Shabbat. The final day of a soul’s expedition of learning and living His Torah, which includes the Everlasting Agreement. This is the “last” day and our 7th day of rest. We clearly can see this with the above Zechariah verse, and this is not the only verse, which makes such a statement. It is also found in Revelation 22:5, “There will be no more night.”
Consequently, there will be those who will come up short due to their own Free Will choice, hence the Lilah of Jacob’s trouble. As Jacob’s trouble progresses and the Bohker of Shabbat commences, I believe this will be the time of the rejuvenation of the planet earth and its heaven above. The latter should not to be confused with the sacred place of The Eternal Creator. For why would His dwelling place have need of such renewal? Does anyone really imagine that any creation has the power to invade or stand against the heavenly, omniscience, omnipresent, all-powerful Creator?
I know for those who have not fully completed this reconciliation through intimately knowing and living His Torah, an opportunity to recognize their error will be provided and let the learning commence! The elect shall be gathered and taught. They must learn and comply to original Torah, which includes the adherence to the Everlasting Agreement of never again consuming any souls with lifeblood. Should they refuse then in all actuality their soul has refused that 7th day of rest, Shabbat. Shabbat cannot now, nor will it ever be, replaced, anymore than the “end times” or “latter day” can be replaced. For on that final day, as we see again in Zechariah, Aheyeh’s day has neither day nor night. This can only be that 7th day, the last day! It is that day that we will rejoice as our eternal soul’s reunite with their Creator! Certainly a Yom will be all that remains and that is no 24-hour clock!
In addition we may also see how Yehshua’s words in Mark 2:27 come to light. “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” As the last days or the Greater Exodus comes to its close we see that 7th day, Shabbat or Sabbath, was made or created for our souls. Many misunderstand this to mean that it is a free for all and Shabbat is open to do as you please. The fallacy here is that this is in direct opposition to our opening verse of Malachi 3:6, The Eternal One does not change. Add to that Yehshua’s very specific statement in Matthew that he came not to abolish the law, The Creator’s Torah, which then we reiterate that the Sabbath or 7th day is to be set-apart or sanctified as recorded initially in Genesis and again later to Moshe. Thus we return to the original intent of the verse showing us that man was not created for Shabbat as in the extra imposed Shelanite-Judah Levitical and Talmudic laws but rather it points to our soul’s final and last 7th day rest just as The Eternal premeditated it to be! (See Dr. Shmuel Asher’s “Asher Codex” for a more complete understanding on Shelanite-Judah)
So, regardless if we want it or not and whether we feel ready or not, there will be an end to the 6 days of His Yom. Then the time of rest, the 7th day, will commence for those who learned, lived, and by doing so taught His Torah. Clearly the souls of the Yeshurun, the righteous, will have completed that which Aheyeh gave them to do!
John 9:4 “As long as it is day, we must do the works of Him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.”
From beginning to end
Lastly, we look at how these terms relate to the collective timeline of humanity as a whole, from creation to the renewed heaven and earth. It all begins with the Bohker of creation. Just as the earth came to life, the Yom of mankind embarked on its trek. This represents all the years of humanity leading up to Jacob’s troubles and finally the Greater Exodus. The sun will set upon the Yom of time, as the twilight of Ereb fades into Lilah, darkness, and thus, the “birthing pangs” of the end-times shall give way. Now I think we all can agree that Jacob’s trouble, or the Christian tribulation, will be the darkest hours for not only all humanity, but in fact, all of creation.
There lies our hope that The Greater Exodus will come at the dawn of a new day, His last day, Yom, for all of mankind. It is Bohker once again as those who remain are gathered to the mountain of The Eternal Creator for an opportunity to learn and live His Torah. Clearly this is the renewal of the heaven that dwells within the souls of all creation, which will occur simultaneously with the renewal of the physical earth. The prophet Amos stated the Lilah of The Eternal One’s Yom this way in 5:20 “Behold, the day of Aheyeh is darkness and not light, blackness without glimmer.” Therefore we know Lilah must come before the Bohker of The Greater Exodus.
Make no mistake, however, as I alluded to previously there will be those who stubbornly hold onto their denial, resist their Creator, and must be forced into the time of learning Aheyeh’s ways, His Torah.
Jer 31:32-33 “32 For this is the covenant I shall seal with the House of Israel after those days – the word of Aheyeh- I will place My Torah within them and I will write it onto their heart; I will be The Eternal for them and they will be a people for Me. 33 They will no longer teach- each man his fellow, each man his brother - saying, ‘Know Aheyeh!’ For all of them will know me, from the smallest to the greatest…”
Allow me to reiterate, upon the completion of the Greater Exodus and those dark days, Bohker, dawn, will rise again and now comes the rejuvenated and renewed heaven and earth.
Isa 65:17 “For behold, I am creating new heavens and a new earth; the former [events] will no longer be recalled and will not be taken to heart.”
Rev 21:1 “Then I saw ‘a new heaven and a new earth,’ for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.”
To Travel or Not to Travel
As a side note I want to address a question that often comes up in our observing Shabbat. Why we feel the need to sequester, as in to remove or set ourselves apart by remaining in our dwellings? Recently, while discussing this with a learned spiritual brother and close friend who just happens to possess his doctorate in Ancient Hebrew language and culture, I was reminded that in reality the entire concept of His week of creation as depicted above is the life we lead in the flesh on a daily basis. We do so because it has been commanded of us, however, there are also some soul benefits that far outweighs the isolation while in the flesh. The answer to the “why” is directly in front of us in the Genesis 2:3, “The Eternal blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it; because on it, He abstained from all His work which He had done.” Because we really will be “set-apart” as in sanctified from those who don’t know His Torah and they will need the Elected One to teach them. We sequester BECAUSE we are the Yeshurun, the righteous, the “Set-apart”!
Walking Among the Clouds
Next we have the firmament, this would encompass everything above the ground up to the sky we look into where the clouds bring moisture. This is where the seas gather together leaving the dry land we call earth. We share this space with most of our vegetation, other animals, and other humans. It is an open free form space, an expanse. Clearly there is more to this space we call sky or air. This is the physical earthly heaven where humans live their lives. We walk, talk, run, swim, work, play and the list goes on. Ultimately we commune with most of nature in the firmament and in particular created beings, human or otherwise.
As we know, our time here is temporal. Our body is the place our soul resides, for the most part, during our time here on earth. But just as this firmament in the physical separates the two waters, our soul separates the water of the body, which we require for life and the “living water”. It is this second water I want to concentrate on. Now we see the water under the firmament being gathered together as the seas leaving dry land, i.e. earth, remaining and separate. Again we see two different physical bodies, each with a different condition of the soul. Spiritually speaking it is understood that a dry soul is one who has no “living water” or whose soul is void of the Creator. This is stated in Jeremiah 2:13 as the “fountain of living water” and being distinguished as the very presence of our Eternal Creator within us!
Psalm 63:1 “O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.”
Living water, one of the necessities to any world, is that which brings us to…The Garden of Eden. To many this place is located far out of reach, however in truth it is within our awakened souls. We see the vegetation, the herbage of the field, the seed bearing plants, and trees. This was given to us and the other sentient beings with the soul of life as food, as His provision! It prolongs and sustains life while here on earth. However, from a more spiritual perspective this is the life giving fruit planted by The Eternal One deep within our soul. His LOVE! This is the purest of love, the very foundation of all creation. This love is freely bestowed by our Creator to us and meant to be given freely out just as the vegetation around us is provided as food for the sustaining of human life. You may say, “ but there are different plants in which to eat of.” AH, but there are differing manifestations of His love as well such as kindness, patience, mercy, compassion, etc. It is His love, which calls us back to Him, Teshuvah (return).
Joel 2:12-13 “ 12Even now -the word of Aheyeh- return to Me with all your Heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with lamentation. 13Rend your hearts and not your garments, and return to Aheyeh your Eternal Creator, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and of great kindness, and He relents of evil.”
Psalm 103:7-8 “ 7He made know His ways to Moses, His actions to the Children of Jacob: 8Compassionate and Gracious is The Eternal, Slow to Anger and Abundant of Kindness.”
Once we return to Him, acknowledging and comprehending His great love for us, then we fully recognize how to ”love” others as we would ourselves (Him).
“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. Though I tell what is to come, and know all secrets, and all wisdom; and though I have faith strong as the storm, which lifts mountains from their seat, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and give all my fire that I have received from my Father, but have not love, I am in no wise profited. Love is patient, love is kind. Love is not envious, works not evil, knows not pride; is not rude, neither selfish; is slow to anger, imagines no mischief; rejoices not in injustice, but delights in justice. Love defends all, love believes all, love hopes all, love bears all; never exhausts itself; but as for tongues they shall cease, and, as for knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we have truth in part, and error in part, but when the fullness of perfection is come, that which is in part shall be blotted out. When a man was a child he spoke as a child, understood as a child, thought as a child; but when he became a man he put away childish things. For now we see through a glass and through dark sayings. Now we know in part, but when we are come before the face of God, we shall not know in part, but even as we are taught by him. And now remain these three: faith and hope and love; but the greatest of these is love.” (Essene Scrolls)
Water is a necessity for life but there is yet another, light. Not to be confused with our discussion earlier concerning Yom, Ereb, Lilah, and Bohker. You will see this is in relation to day and night and the part it plays in the two time periods present in our day-to-day life. The two, water and light, are integral to any and all life forms, be it in the flesh or in the soul. We return to the firmament where we see the placement of two lights used to differentiate between day and night, used for signs, appointed times and in determining our seasons. These are the sun, being the greater by day, and the stars, the lessor by night. We should realize that we are never without light. This is also two fold not only as the time period of our total consciousness but also the two main states of consciousness of the flesh, which we know as the sub-conscious and conscious, i.e. awake and asleep. The heavenly spiritual part of us, The Eternal’s immortal soul, is consciousness. Just as we are never in total darkness, we are never without consciousness. Think of those “Near Death Experiences, (NDE)”. These documented occurrences clearly speak of our soul’s ability to not only leave our earthly dwelling (the body) but also of its consciousness when our flesh is unresponsive. Add to this that Quantum Physics has proven the existence of vibrations and frequencies not only in the entire universe but in us as well, our soul! People, light has energy, vibration, and frequency…and so do our immortal souls! There is much more here to consider and explore but that will have to be tackled at a later time.
I would like to submit that the three base elements of our world are water, earth and air. We know that out of the dry earth, man was formed, but without water and air, to that earth we will quickly return! Now isn’t it funny how other sentient beings were created to inhabit the very places that mankind just cannot naturally exist. As I consider these other creatures with the soul of life, this can only mean that they too are a microcosm of Aheyeh, the macrocosm. Our world was created to be a complete, whole, functioning organism that the majority of mankind mistakenly believes humans are to own and control. This error leaves much to be desired if you are anything except human! This is the erroneous earthly perspective. When we look at the soul, however, we already know He is the source of living water, formed life from the very ground, and now that it is His breath that gave us life, the soul of life! (Genesis 1:28) This world of ours was not just created for human beings but ALL sentient beings. Just as our world is interconnected with our need for its water, earth, and air, so are the “souls of life”, which reside upon her! This is the heaven within us; it is to be one with all created beings! This cannot be emphasized enough. Each and every “Soul of Life” has a rightful place as an integral part not only of this created world but also of its Creator!
Ecclesiastes 3:18-20 “18Then I said to myself concerning men: ‘The Eternal Creator has chosen them, but only to see that they themselves are as beasts.’ 19For the fate of men and the fate of beast – they have one and the same fate: As one dies, so dies the other, and they all have the same spirit. Man has no superiority over beast, for all is futile. 20All go to the same place; all originated from dust and all return to dust.”
Let us now talk about our ability to procreate, to give life outside of our body in the form of progeny (earth). All beings with the soul of life have this capacity, and this obviously gives continuance to our world. That is to “Grow and Multiply” thus filling the earth! Learn, live and teach…this, on the other hand, is life being given outside of ourselves for and to the soul (heaven). As we learn His Torah, live His Torah, and teach His Torah, we spiritually give other souls the capability to continue moving forward in their soul’s journey.
Can it not be seen that continuous growth and the awakening of the other souls is precisely The Eternal’s desire? This means the reuniting of His breath returning to Him. Think about breathing…you inhale taking in life then you exhale giving out life. Therefore, that which was given returns to reunite! Take a moment to revisit the concept of loving The Eternal Creator with one’s whole being and treating others, as you want to be treated. This is breathing Him in, seeking Him, communing with Him, ultimately allowing Him to teach you. It is here that you learn His true instructions, His Torah. It is not with guilt or condemnation but with convictions, His small still voice that He guides. With that guidance He reveals and defines exactly what His character, His ways, and His thoughts consist of; there is no convincing by man required. His breath now lives in you and you are a changed soul. This is only half of the equation; time to exhale His Torah and give others the opportunity for life. Living His Torah accomplishes this and teaching or assisting others becomes natural. This is how our souls were meant to exist, united with its Eternal Creator. It’s as simple as breathing and when asked for with all your heart, mind, and soul it is given. Understand that He will use others that have gone before you in this process, but always take the time to breath Him in and continue to seek.
He is the giver of life in every way. This is His creation in us. That is the ability to not only give birth to physical life but spiritual life outside of ourselves. So, when all is said and done, and we have completed this journey with acute awareness, our soul then reunites back for its “rest” with its Creator, the 7th day!!!
Genesis 2:16- 17 “ 16And The Eternal commanded the man, saying, 'Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17but of the Tree of Knowledge of good and bad, you must not eat thereof, for on the day you eat of it, you shall surely die.'
18The Eternal said, 'It is not good for man to be alone; I will make him a helper corresponding to him.' 19Now, The Eternal had formed out of the ground, every beast of the field and every bird of the sky; and brought them to the man to see what he would call each one; and what ever the man called each living creature, that remained his name. 20And the man assigned names to all the cattle and every bird of the sky, and to every beast of the field; but as for man, he did not find a helper corresponding to him.
21So The Eternal cast a deep sleep upon the man and he slept; and He took one of his sides, and He filled in flesh in its place. 22 Then The Eternal fashioned the flesh that he took from the man into a woman, and He brought her to the man. 23And the man said, 'This time it is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. This shall be called Woman, for from man she was taken.'
24They were both naked, the man and his wife and they were not ashamed.”
Until recently I was uncertain about including the creation of man and woman in this document and/or exactly where it fit in. Truth is I have known this bit of insight for many years. The physical truth here is every human on earth is aware of and needs little instruction on my reiterating about the gender imprints of male and female upon the soul. We see man; we see woman. What we do to one another in the flesh is in fact a crying shame and I will leave it at that for now.
It really isn’t much of a stretch to see that the woman coming from man, so to speak, is really the fact that our soul is a microcosm of The Eternal Creator’s macrocosm. Put simply, we are a part of Him, individually and collectively!
I want to touch briefly on the concept of “marriage” here. On the physical level it is stated that the two become one. Is that not so with our souls as well? Just as we are to leave behind our mother and father to unite in the flesh with that mate, we leave behind the flesh for our soul to reunite with our Eternal Creator! It is easy to see the earthly connection made here that symbolizes the “heavenly” aspect. This has always been the very essence of our soul’s journey. That’s right; it’s not how much of the earthly pleasures you get to experience, how much money you make, or in some aspects who you even marry, although life may be just a little easier if there is some spiritual common ground.
It also is insignificant to whether your “love” relationship is of heterosexual or homosexual origins. With a little research you will find that the strife and struggles of “joining” with another is virtually the same regardless of the sexual orientation. This is true of the reconciliation back to the Creator as well. Why? Because humans are much too concerned with all the aspects of self to be bothered in actually seeking Him.
So here we are in humanity, looking for our “soul mate”. To me this is almost laughable, ok…it is! Truth is that our “soul mate” is the Creator Himself. Gender aside, no earthly mate is equipped to satisfy the needs of the soul, which The Eternal Creator placed deep within us. Not to mention that all of us is on his own soul journey as well.
Hosea 2:18 “And it shall be on that day - the word of The Eternal – that you will call [Me] Ishi (my husband) and you will no longer call Me Baali (my master).”
So which is it…master or husband? The earthly concept has been confused and convoluted for years, as in a husband is the master of his home. Considering the fact that The Eternal Creator is genderless, “husband” denotes no gender role, as some are fond of attributing to it. But rather look to the root, which is “ish” or man. Take this in contrast to “ba’ali” or “ba’al”, which means owner/master. Our souls are not looking to reunite to their “owner” but rather the source they came from, as in woman (created from the rib (actually, curve), i.e. part) back to man (the source). Taking all of this in context, the above verse clarifies that The Creator never demanded servitude as if we were His loyal subjects or His slaves. His desire has always been a love relationship and the reunification of our soul with His. It is we, humans, who add to this simple fact.
And let’s just cover that whole naked thing too! Your communion with The Eternal Creator will not happen until you are willing to be stripped of everything. It is not His inability but yours. Is there any way to really convince you that you can prevent your omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent Creator of the Universe from knowing where you are or what you’re doing? Once you are willing to truly give over every last part of your being then you have opened your soul wide to accept Him into the very chambers of your soul. Every experience and every moment in life up to this pales by comparison and you will never be the same.
Perhaps it’s time to get down to the nitty gritty. Our Eternal Creator told us exactly where and how we were to live life with Him. This has not changed but has been grossly misunderstood and extremely convoluted by man! It needs to be understood that the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good & evil are not found in some far away unattainable garden; they are within us! We eat from either one or the other. The tree of life is to live from our soul choosing good and life; thus, we live in the light, know Aheyeh as our source of living water, have His breath within us, love all His creation, and walk humbly with Him. I.E. Love Him with all your being and love all His Created Beings as He loves you!
Micah 6:8 “He has told you, O Man, what is good! What does Aheyeh require of you but to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with your Eternal Creator.”
To eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is to live out of the flesh. All can be summed up as “doing what is right in your own eyes”, because the fruit was, “pleasing to the eye and good for food”. Now this is not to say that there may not be some knowledge or awareness of the soul but if your wants, desires, or fear come before seeking your Creator then this will mean “death”…oh not as in a one time, buy it now or loose forever, but rather, a continued separation from your Creator, which leaves you with trying to fill that dark empty void that one’s soul journey began with. And of course…another time in this incarnate life to find the entrance to the “Garden” within. For from this earth you were created and to this earth you shall return. You are held in bondage by this earth, it is your Ba’ali (owner/master) until you give over your will and seek your Creator for who He is…Aheyeh, The all-consuming Macrocosm-Soul of your microcosm-Soul. This is the mistake the mind of the flesh makes. It confuses being as or like Him as in our being an actual part of Him, with playing god while here on earth. Remember I said what we do to one another is a crying shame? Well, now comes the time in our program to expose man’s dastardly selfish ways! All of this is seen in the way we treat one another as in defining and categorizing His creation. Man is effectively destroying the planet given to us as our habitat. We mistreat not only people according to our hierarchy be it by race, gender, social status…you name it, but we extend that to the other created life-forms as well. Yes I am speaking of how we demean, enslave, and kill the other animals, fowl, and fish, all with living souls. So if the cherubim and the flaming sword guard the gate back into the Garden of Eden itself, (which then by default must still exist somewhere), then the only way back in is to cease partaking of the tree of good and evil and eat solely from the tree of life. It is living through our soul by way of seeking Our Creator who then leads us, which gives us access to the Garden of Eden once again, because it is within us!
In conclusion, I believe we would be amiss to view the days of creation as solely a physical earthly event. Our souls are not temporal as is this physical house in which we dwell but eternal and we must nurture it as such. It must be understood that to exist in the flesh means to die with the flesh and therefore the soul has not completed its journey and did not move forward, its Ereb has not come. So thus, Lilah now appears as the body dies and there is a new “Bohker” in store for that un-reconciled soul, and it’s another trip to complete the evolution of the soul on the planet earth! Not exactly a total Disneyland experience, aye? His Yom will come to an end: the 7th day is coming. It is not a matter of “if” but of “when”. If there is any doubt that what has been shown here is not real then consider the words of Yehshua:
Luke 17:20-21 “ 20Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, 21nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in within you.”
