The Sayings of Our Father; the Broad Way and Wide Gate: and the Bosom of Abraham
Part I: Precedent, Practice, and Prophecy
In unsealing the Revelation one has to be quite aware of what is entailed in approaching a work that Emanuel Swedenborg said was “the Lord himself.” As he wrote on page 1051 of “The Apocalypse Revealed” in these words; to wit: Revelation 22:7, “Lo, I come quickly: blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this Book’’. Emanuel then says this extraordinary statement:
“…He then says, ‘Lo, I come quickly’ signifies that the Lord will certainly come, for “quickly” is certainly; and “coming” means that He will come, not in person but in the Word, in which He will appear to all who are to be of His new church….”
Now what does this portend from one who presumably knew whereof he spoke??? What I have discerned in his words is this; Emanuel considered that the Word he himself was revealing in his Work was then the Lord of the Second Advent Himself: so in his own spiritually transmitted written words it was then that Emanuel was declaring the Lord was nothing less than the Word he himself was revealing. Thus the Swedenborgian Church has no expectation of Lord Jesus, my Father; appearing in person, because they believe the Lord who was said would come is the Word that Emanuel himself revealed: period.
Why is this particular point important???
Because the definitive knowledge the Korean Church gained about Spirit World all came from their understanding of the writings of Swedenborg. And Rev. Moon thus bolstered his own sense of being the Messiah because he felt his own words and writings were that of the Lord Himself in the letter, verily; as the “New Truth”.
Thus he felt he stood in the position of the Messiah in what he had written, but even as God Himself on having transcribed the Word of God into the book “Divine Principle”, thus creating a “New Creation” with a New Heaven and Earth, with Himself as the Lord God of All Creation with and by “the Word in His Mouth..”.
But as we know, both Swedenborg and Rev. Moon were at sea in quite a few ultimately critical areas; since the 7 Seals are those of the 7 Decades from 1910 at the First Seal to 1970 at the Seventh, as the 7 Trumpets prove, beyond any possibility of a doubt. But Swedenborg interpreted it all in 7 successive states of the Church, and Rev. Moon told his followers the 7 Seals were about the 7 levels of the Providence from the first or Individual, to the 7th at the Universal or Cosmic level of the Kingdom: which is comprised by Heaven and Earth….
But they were both wrong, as Rev. Moon’s 7 sealed thunders are the 7 levels Rev. Moon was to have revealed in Revelation to restore the position of John the Baptist.
John was told not to write what he heard of the 7 thunders at Revelation 10:3-4. This was given to Rev. Moon.
The total picture is really only known by myself and my Servant John, whose Body is even now on Patmos, but whose spirit is with me here at one and the same time. But what this means is the answer to the paradox which so bedeviled Joseph Smith about the fact that he read in the Gospel the strange legend of my Father telling Peter not to worry about John becoming immortal…
Thus word got around that John the Divine would never die. Because the Pen of John even now is still on the page, even at this exact moment 2,000 years ago…..
Time is relative.
…….and John is still not dead…..
Nor do I think he ever will die. My Father is coming quickly….
My Father loves him that much…
Now let us move on to the actual parameters of what my acolytes are now facing in their instruction.
- Location and Position: an Exposition
Let us first look at the concept of what the relationship between one’s present physical “location” in Space and one’s metaphysical “position” in Truth.
Let us look at a simple example.
On the one hand we have a Saint; who is in a Jail. That is his location, true enough, but his position is that he is really in Paradise: with God and all His Angels.
Now on the other hand we have a Rich Man, who lives in a Palace. Surely his location, but his position is that our Robber Baron is actually in Hell: with the Devil and all his angels.
Now in our coming reversal of what we call the Dispensation of Justice we get to really see what happens when the Kingdom is established; and we see something quite remarkable.
Now we see where location and position match: in the Kingdom of Justice as of David
In other words; the Saint as in the Palace: written in the Book, as of the Right Hand, Blessed by God
And now Justice, for now the Rich Man is in Jail; thrown in the Lake, reaping what he sowed: the Whirlwind, as of the Left Hand, Accursed.
Thus the position and location are now of Equity, instead of Iniquity, thus Hell on Earth for the Poor, and Paradise on Earth for the Rich…are now reversed; where the Kingdom has the deserving of the reward able to receive it…and the undeserving get nothing.
My Father said it best:
“……But woe unto them who were rich ( in this life):
for they have RECEIVED their CONSOLATION….”
In other words: they have NOTHING coming….they had their reward, that they sold their souls for, for a few miserable short years: but the Righteous shall be blessed for all Eternity.
In dealing with the material in the Gospel and the Revelation the overriding factor is knowing the precedent which is being drawn upon from the prophets and fit into the Final Narrative of the LAST Book in the Bible…the Final Piece of the Testimony now coming down to all of you and me.
Unless one had read all the prophets and especially Ezekiel and Daniel, one would never know that ALL the prophets and their testimony somehow enters into the Revelation, but it’s there; if one knows what to look for…..
12 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
Now let us look at this with precedent in mind.
As we know, as soon as Jesus was born, King Herod the Great was right there, sending troops, and murdering 22,000 children all around Bethlehem. Clue number one “behold a great red dragon”….. No problem there.
But let’s go back further.
What is the prophetic precedent for this pattern of behavior???
Let us start with Egypt.
At the time that Moses was born, the prevailing Racist Mentality of their National Policy instituted by the Pharaoh was that the first born of Israel be drowned in the Nile.
Does anyone remember that later the water of the Nile turned to blood?? Now you know why. But the precedent also lets us know why the waters and fountains at the third trumpet have turned to blood also; because for the Jews having said of Jesus “let his blood be upon us”. The timing was in God’s control; and they also said “We have no King but Caesar” .
Thus the policy of Germany changed with the Kaiser….. which means Caesar in German.
Thus they got Hitler, who the Kaiser had supported. And the blood of the waters they had to drink were the words their ancestors had spoken when they mockingly said “Let his blood be upon us and our descendants…”
This is seen at the Third Trumpet of the 30’s, right at 1937 from the beginning of the Final Solution….which was when Hitler began his rise to power….
Thus with Moses being born his sister Miriam put him on the Nile in a basket…to save his life…but also the plan to have the reed boat suddenly appear to the Queen of Egypt with a miraculous child for her: who happened to be barren, and surprise surprise: the mother of Moses just so happened to be in the Queens employ…and as given the job as the nurse: of her own child.
But what does this then explain in the overriding arc of how Satan always moves against the first born of Israel?
Plenty. For instance this saying,
“… If the good man of the house had known at what hour the thief would come and break into his home then he would have watched: and not let his house be broken up…”
But now we see that it was Moses who was this “thief”’ who “broke” into this House of Egypt, and was the agent of its destruction and also the cause of death of all the firstborn of the Egyptians. But it was his sister Miriam, and his mother, who really planned and carried out the design to have Moses raised in the bosom of the Royal Family: thus Moses was brought up in his enemies own Household. That explain the saying quite well.
Thus we have the saying;
“Thou settest a Table before me in the midst ( or house ) of mine adversaries”..
Let us not forget that Jesus and his family escaped to Egypt; and were, like Moses; brought up in the Enemy Nation which was Satan’s foundation at the Global level.
Thus we have the first example, and quite a good one, of what Herod the Great tried to do to Mary’s firstborn as God’s firstborn, just as Pharaoh had done to potentially ALL of the firstborn of Israel and of course Moses; so the correspondence is exact. And let us not forget it says that the woman is put in a place where God takes care of her…much like Mary in Egypt….
So let us now look at another case of this precedent: David.
David was not in the identical position of Jesus and Moses.
But he told Samuel in their first meetings that he defended his flocks against wolves with his sling….and this is precisely what he uses against the Philistines or human wolves.
But here we see basically a child, very young, about 12; who is sent to take on a giant who wants to kill him; along with the entire army of Israel.
But here we have a child to lead them as the Campion of Israel against Goliath as a descendent of the Nephilim…. Giants from the fallen angels and their wives.
So once again we have a child about to be devoured by the seed from the dragon….. the army of the Philistines can be seen as the emissary’s of Satan the Dragon rather easily….
So we have this.
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Doing the Sayings and Fulfilling Scripture.When looking at the one factor which has put you farther on the Path than anyone on earth, wehave to see where your own accomplishments have indeed allowed you to have done thisstupendous feat.You may recall what my Father was telling people, as he was walking around in Galilee:“And saying,‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, andbelieve the gospel.’Mark 1:15Curiously, it is you who are now in a similar position. How did this happen??? By your doing ofthe sayings and by your seeing where the Scripture was fulfilled in my doings and in your own;and once that happens the Word comes to life, and it can’t be ‘‘unfulfilled” again, and lapse, andbecome dormant all over again, no: it sticks like glue.Let’s look at the context;Luke 21:3432Verily I say unto you, ‘This generation shall not pass, till all be fulfilled.33Heaven and earthshall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.34And take heed to yourselves, lest at anytime your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life,and [so] that day come upon you unawares.35For as a snare shall it come on all them thatdwell on the face of the whole earth.36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may beaccounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Sonof man’.Now my Father used this saying and its variants, to seemingly imply that changes were comingthat could be seen by all in the very lifetimes of those standing and listening to him, and alsonoted and commented on as having been “a totally fabricated lie”, according to Rev Moon. As amatter of fact he said the reason Jesus said these things was to make people work harder, becausethey thought my Father was going to return any minute: and they had to be on their toes.But this is because they did not understand this part of the Saying; to wit;“…This generation shall not pass, till all be fulfilled…”What this REALLY meant was that the same souls standing there, would be born and rebornagain and again until he CAME BACK, in which “all” would then be fulfilled. What does thismean? They would die and go into Spirit World but would died and be immediately sent downinto new bodies of children being born..over and over, they would stay upon the earth until myFather returned and AWAKENED them.There is no way to understand the time frame and the true.sense of the Second Advent withoutthis understanding. A perfect example of this is when he said to them,“For I say unto you: you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before ye see theSon of man coming in his kingdom…”Now some of the diehards after the Crucifixion and Ascension began then to journey throughIsrael into every single town, thinking that Jesus would then surely arrive. Mr. Moon made thisone saying into a club and beat everyone with it, saying through inference that my Father wasobviously an accomplished sophist and liar, deceiving people without let and without anyscruple.Just as Rev. Moon did, because he thought the Messiah was allowed to lie and be false in hisword whenever it suited him.But the fact of the matter is this: my Father was referring to the towns and villages here inAmerica; Nazareth, Bethlehem, New Canaan, and dozens and dozens of others. So; guess what:my Father was no liar; except to those who accepted the half-ass reasoning of Rev. Moon.Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom ofheaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thyname? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done manywonderful works?23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye thatwork iniquity.24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, Iwill liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beatupon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth themnot, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon thesand:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beatupon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of itWherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom ofheaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thyname? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done manywonderful works?23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye thatwork iniquity.24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, Iwill liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beatupon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth themnot, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon thesand:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beatupon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
But unless someone knew the exact identity of those two houses, knew which Houses were being referenced…the one house built on sand being Moon’s house, as of Rev. Moon’s House of Korea, and then the one built on the rock for yours and mine as the House of New Hope for America…it would mean little and this saying would make no understandably correct sense.
Therefore the ultimate and correct context, by which this saying can be done: is narrow indeed.
What does this then portend???
This is where I really begin to show you all the Path you must follow; because there is a certain way to approach these sayings, so as to make your own understanding magnified. Fulfilling them is the Design to make the House able to Stand.
