“Truth is not a cluster of concepts.”
The following ideas are not cast into stone; they are intended as pointers, as inspirations for my own study. Send me an email, if you like. Let’s look together:
"The Sabbath is only the mystical sense of stillness, when you are unconcerned, when you are not anxious, when you are not looking for results, knowing that signs follow and do not precede..." (more)
Satan is only the embodiment of unbelief. // the doubter // Reason questions it, reason doubts it, and reason rejects it. So if the vision is true then reason is rejecting Jesus Christ, for Jesus Christ defines himself as the truth, saying: "I am the truth..." If the revelation is true, and reason rejects it, is not reason Satan, the doubting one?
Saul = which means "ask for"
Paul was first known as Saul, which means "ask for," as Saul was seeking the cause of the phenomena of life. His name was changed to Paul, which means "the little one."
Do not see Saul as a man, but as humanity.
Serpent = The symbol of God in action. The symbol of eternal life. Symbol of Christ
- Synonyms: snake
Servant >>> "Paul asked the question, “who are you, to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own Master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Master is able to make him stand.” Now that whole drama takes place within the individual. My “servant” is this garment that is speaking to you. Your “servant” is not one who cleans your home, but the body that you are wearing. That’s your “servant.” “Let no man pass judgment on that servant,” for the Master is in control."
Completeness // "Seven is a stillness, a rest, the Sabbath. It is the state when man is completely unmoved in his conviction that the thing is. When I can assume the feeling of my wish fulfilled and go to sleep, unconcerned, undisturbed, I am at rest mentally, and am keeping the Sabbath or am blowing the trumpet seven times. And when I reach that point the walls crumble. Circumstances alter then remold themselves in harmony with my assumption. As they crumble I resurrect that which I have appropriated within. The walls, the obstacles, the problems, crumble of their own weight if I can reach the point of stillness within me."

the grace or the abode of the dead // Sheol becomes for certain classes an intermediate state between death and resurrection; for the wicked and for Gentiles it is nearly a synonym for Gehenna (hell). // (Heb., "the all-demanding world" = Gr. Hades, "the unknown region"), the invisible world of departed souls. (See HELL .) //
- Synonyms: an intermediate state between death and resurrection

"Soil is your general mental condition. Your soil, your general mental condition is what feeds the seeds you have planted. The master key to changing your general mental condition – the soil of your mind – is simple: Do what it takes, to change the qualities of conversations inside your head."
Son = term of endearment // For the sons of God are those who are guided by the Spirit of God. Romans 8:14 // son = concept, idea
- Synonyms: sons
son of man
“He called himself the 'Son of Man,' a phrase which Ezekiel used constantly to describe himself when directly inspired by God;” Excerpt From: Damon, S. Foster, Eaves, Morris. “A Blake Dictionary.” // the Human Truth
son of perdition
The son of perdition means simply the belief in loss. Son is a concept, an idea. Perdido is loss. I have only truly lost the concept of loss, for nothing can be lost.
“When Man fell and assumed his present physical form, the West [Tharmas] went outward and became the Circumference, or body; the South [Urizen] ascended and took dominion as the Zenith, or head; the North [Urthona] sank out of sight and became the Nadir, or subconscious; while the East [Luvah] turned inward and became “the Center, unapproachable for ever,” or the heart. When they were thus materialized, the Four established communication with the outer world by the Four Senses: “the Eyes are the South, and the Nostrils are the East, and the Tongue is the West, and the Ear is the North” (J 12:54–60).”
Excerpt From: Damon, S. Foster, Eaves, Morris. “A Blake Dictionary.”
- Synonyms: east, west, north, Urizen, Tharmas, Urthona, Luvah
~what you believe to be true.~
"Water symbolizes the psychological life. In the second chapter of John, the story is told of Jesus filling the stone jars with water. Now, stone is the symbol of literal facts and water the symbol of their psychological interpretation. When you repent by changing the literal facts to conform to your fulfilled desire, your water has turned into wine, for wine is the application of the truth that you have heard." // bricks (manmade concepts)
suffer = to experience a sensation or feeling
... of God, who takes away the sins of the world. And then the first words given into Jesus’ mouth, “Suffer it so to be now” (Matthew 3:15). In other words, not suffering as we use the word suffer—suffer means “to allow it”—to allow a thing is to suffer it. I will suffer it; I will allow it. And so, “Suffer it so to be now.”
- Synonyms: suffered
sword - effectiveness
