Overcoming preconceived notions, developed over thousands of years and molded by human nature, is a very difficult task indeed; Especially when practically everyone you know believes they are true and factual as presented. The question is, "What do you do, when you discover that all is not as it appears to be on the surface" and "What do you do, when your Spiritual eyes and ears have been opened to the hidden truth, and practically no one will listen to you?" Well, don't get too upset, because apparently YHVH doesn't want just anyone to know the truth, and apparently not just anyone is capable of accepting the truth either.
2 And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that YHVH did before your (physical) eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land;
3 The great temptations which thine (physical) eyes have seen, the (physical) signs, and those great (physical) miracles:
4 Yet YHVH hath not given you a (Spiritual or Righteous) heart to perceive, and (Spiritual or Righteous) eyes to see, and (Spiritual or Righteous) ears to hear, unto this day (even now).
Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house (of people), which have (physical) eyes to see, and (Spiritually) see not; they have (physical) ears to hear, and (Spiritually) hear not: for they are a rebellious house.
9 Who has ears to hear, let him hear.
10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
12 For whosoever has (ears to hear), to him shall (understanding & Truth) be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever has not (ears to hear), from him shall be taken away even that (which) he has (possesses).
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables (Allegories): because they in seeing (the physical) see not (the Spiritual); and hearing (the physical) they hear not (the Spiritual), neither do they understand (No Spiritual heart to perceive).
14 And in them (The Worldly) is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive (It is prophecy folks; I did not make this up !):
15 For this peoples (worldly) heart has grown large (waxed gross), and their (Spiritual or Righteous) ears are dull of hearing (do not listen), and their (Spiritual or Righteous) eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see (Understand Truth) with their (Spiritual or Righteous) eyes, and hear with their (Spiritual or Righteous) ears, and should understand with their (Spiritual or Righteous) heart, and should be (Spiritually) converted, and I should (Spiritually) heal them.
16 But blessed are your (Spiritual or Righteous) eyes, for they see (The Mysteries Of The Kingdom): and your (Spiritual or Righteous) ears, for they hear (The Mysteries Of The Kingdom).
Yes, "The Mysteries of The Kingdom" are represented as allegories, metaphors, idioms, and parables (anthropomorphisms or physical to Spiritual parallels). These anthropomorphisms serve the purpose of separating "The Worldly" (Physically Focused) people (Tares) from YHVH's future children (The Spiritually Focused People or Wheat); "Spiritually" refers to "Righteousness Seekers" for only they have "The Heart (mental attitude) to Perceive."
I need to make it quite clear that what you are about to discover is absolutely not the result of "Spiritualism" or "Spiritism".
SPIRITUALISM: is a religious movement that became popular and prominent in English-speaking countries in the 1840s 1920s. This is not to say that necromancy hasn't existed for millenniums. The movement's most distinguishing feature is the false belief that the spirits of the dead can actually be contacted by mediums. These spirits or ghosts are believed to lie on a higher spiritual plane than humans, and are therefore capable of providing guidance in both worldly and spiritual matters.
Modern Spiritualism first appeared in the 1840s in the Burned-Over District of upstate New York where earlier religious movements such as Millerism (Seventh Day Adventists) and Mormonism (Latter Day Saints) had emerged during the Second Great Awakening. It was an environment in which many people felt that direct communication with their god or angelic beings was possible, and in which many people felt uncomfortable with the Calvinist notions that their god would behave harshly; for example, that their god would condemn unbaptized infants to an eternity in Hell.
There is a huge difference between a "Righteousness Seeking Spirit" (mindset, mentality, personality), and a spiritualistic world focused on the concept of physically communicating with spirits of the dead, ghosts, gods, demigods, demons, and angels. This alone should completely void the concept of Mary (Miryiam) getting pregnant by being with a ghost.
And the angel (Greek #32, aggelos, meaning "A Human Messenger" or that which delivers a message) answered and said unto her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee (spiritually or mentally), and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore, also, that Holy thing which shall be born of thee shall (someday) be called the "Son of YHVH".
Note:"Overshadowed" means "To Be Influenced By" or a "Preternatural Influence". In any case it is a psychological influence.
So what does "Preternatural" mean? It means "Greater Than Normal" which indicates a Righteousness Seeking Nature (which is greater than "Human Nature"), and it does not indicate a supernatural phenomenon. Of course christopagan (hellenized) translators (who do not understand YHVH's Ruach Qodesh or Holy Spirit) will (with their worldly minds) automatically assume the latter (supernatural).
A "Preternatural Influence" may come from a physical source (a pastor, minister, priest, teacher, prophet) or be a psychological (Preternatural) facet of YHVH's Spiritual influence (such as Spiritual Discernment, Gifts of The Spirit, etc. .).
Interestingly, this particular angel is, also, the Archangel Gabriel; and as such, Gabriel was a "Preternatural Influence" to the psychological status of Mary (Miryiam). Just for the record, Mary's (Miryiam's) mental status became one of rejoicing (excitement); incidently, this psychological influence is used in TSN's argument against "The Virgin Birth" as being a supernatural event, but rather a preternatural influence (More later). Oh yeah, The Title of Gabriel means "Man of GOD"; SEE: "The Righteous Vine of YHVH" (Click).
21 Yea, whiles I [was] speaking in prayer, even The MAN Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.
22 And HE informed [me], and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding.
23 At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew [thee]; for thou [art] greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.
I can assure you (if you don't already know) that there is absolutely nothing in my messages advocating spiritualism. As a matter of fact, Anthropomorphic teachings are just the opposite of Spiritualism, as there is no direct psychic or physical contact with the dead or invisible spirits through the five physical senses (hearing, seeing, tasting, touching, smelling) at all. Allegories and parables are the "Preternatural" discernments of a "Righteousness Seeking Mentality", and not direct physical communications with the (So Called) spirits of the dead or invisible beings.
Satan & Demons
There is no difference between Satan & Demons, and Archangels &Angels except that the message is one of Self-righteousness versus The Righteousness of YHVH.
Unrighteous thoughts and messages are metaphorically know as Demons (thoughts that torment). And Satan is the source of Human Nature (SELF-Centeredness).
The Truth is Simple: The entire Bible (Tanakh too) is written in many various types of parables, metaphors, idioms, and allegories, etc.. In addition to having the power to separate the Tares from the Wheat, we should, also, know that if it weren't for allegories, metaphors, idioms, and Parables, The Bible, as we know it, could never have been written by the ancients or studied in a lifetime, because The Bible would be over a million pages long. The first seven symbolic days of creation alone would have taken more than a million pages to describe in detail. Ever hear the old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words? Well parables, metaphors, and allegories in Scripture are "Word Pictures" that describe a "Physical to Spiritual" parallel relationship that would be impossible to efficiently describe any other way; Archangels and Angels are no exception to the rule. However, there are both physical angels ( ministers, pastors, priests, prophets, teachers, etc .) and Spiritual (psychological) Angels, which human minister, pastors, prophets, and teachers of "The Word" (Truth) have the power to impart.
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Obviously if all angels had wings, then how in this world could anyone ever be unaware of them? Of course they not only look like ordinary people, but they are people; the only difference is that they are filled with YHVH's Righteous Character (Holy Spirit).
Additionally: If any of you seekers out there have not yet read and learned what YHVH's Holy Spirit truly is, then it is, also, imperative that you do so prior to reading the next paragraph. Read: "The Holy Spirit Revealed" and then return by closing the new window.
Now that you are fully aware of what a "True Spirit" is, you may apply that information to all spirits (obviously NOT all spirits are Holy or righteousness seeking). However, make no mistake, all Spirit Angels (whether righteous or not) are psychological influences (mental gifts, mental images, attitudes, mentalities, mindsets, personalities) that are capable of either directly or indirectly interfacing with a human or animal brain and modifying or controlling thoughts from within the brain. The five senses may or may not be bypassed in the process; therefore common man has most often associated Spiritual Angels with "Dreams, Visions, and unexplained Supernatural Appearances".
The following information on Archangels is readily available in most any good Concordance or Lexicon, and I know that it is true. So, what better way to learn about Archangels than to start with their allegorical identities (personalities); Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, even Messiah.
According to Strong's Concordance
Greek #743 a chief angel from Greek #757 to rule over angels (aggelos)
So now I'm wondering why there is no Hebrew word for Archangels, but there are examples where Archangels are simply referred to as "Mighty Angels" or as "Angels of GOD" (KJV). So here we have a metaphorical "Spirit Nature" or "Spiritual Mentality" with the power to "Rule" over (influence) other angels. So what are angels?
Hebrew #4397 (mal'awk) A messenger, Angel, Prophet, Priest, Minister or teacher of YHVH
Hebrew #4398 (mal'ak) Angel; Greek # 32 (Aggelos), A messenger, angel, minister of or pastor of YHVH.
Note: An angel may be either a real physical messenger with a Spiritual message or an existent psychological mindset that contains a Spiritual message.
My friends, any Angel, mighty or not, is a bearer of information from YHVH, and those bearers are Human. Not just men, but women too; all of which are "THE RIGHTEOUS CHILDREN of YHVH" on Earth. Angels are not mysterious ethereal winged creatures; Angels are anointed human beings that serve YHVH as deliverers of Righteous information, and perform various Righteous functions for Righteousness Sake. Indeed all Prophets and Prophetesses (Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah,Elisha, Elijah, Moses, Messiah, Miriam, Deborah, Huldah, Noadiah, etc.), all ministers, and nazarite priests, were all Angels. Especially those that belonged to the Righteous Order that I refer to as "The Righteous Vine of YHVH". (Click)
And, yes, there were female prophetesses or female angels (messengers) too.
¶ And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
¶ And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.
5 And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.
2 Kings 22:14
¶ So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went unto Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college;) and they (MEN) communed with her.
¶ My GOD, think thou upon Tobiah and Sanballat according to these their works, and on the prophetess Noadiah, and the rest of the prophets, that would have put me in fear.
And I went [in] unto the (unnamed) prophetess; and she conceived, and bare a son. Then said the LORD to me, Call his name Mahershalalhashbaz.
Anthropomorphically Speaking: Those of us with spiritual "Ears to Hear" and "Eyes to See" should immediately be able to discern, that "Righteous Angels" (physical or psychological) are the parallel equivalent of "Righteous Thoughts" (Righteous Messages from YHVH's Holy Spirit). This would automatically make "Archangels" a facet of YHVH's Righteousness Seeking Nature. Why? Because it is a person's nature or Spirit (good or evil) that determines (rules over) a person's thoughts (good or evil).
Hebrew #4317 "Who is like YHVH" (Miykael)
Greek #3413 means Michael (The Archangel), but the name is, also, alluded to by its metaphorical meaning. Hebrew #4317, which literally means "One who is like YHVH".
Note:This "One who is like YHVH" is a direct reference to the Righteous Spiritual Image of YHVH, that the Archangel "Michael" possesses; and that Spiritual Image is none other than "The Righteousness Seeking (Holy) Spirit or mind of YHVH". This means that Michael is, also, a "Preternatural Influence" that is the equivalent to a facet of the Righteousness Seeking Nature of YHVH.
Female Angels would have female names, and would take on a female role. However, lest ye forget, The Holy Spirit in Hebrew is FEMININE.
I don't know about you, but at this point I can easily see that it doesn't take a genius to figure out that Michael (The Archangel) is an anthropomorphism for YHVH's Mindset (Righteousness Seeking Nature) that psychologically Calls a person to be filled with The Holy Spirit (Righteousness Seeking Nature) of YHVH.
Apparently the archangel "Michael" represents "The Will of YHVH".
A True Child of YHVH might be inclined to say, "Now that we have heeded our calling by the Archangel Michael (Righteous Will of YHVH), and have psychologically received YHVH's Righteousness Seeking (Holy Nature) Spirit", We are now served by YHVH's angels that deliver unto us righteous thoughts (messages, mental images, dreams, visions, and understanding through Righteous Discernment).
In Contrast: It follows that Satan must, also, be an metaphor for "Unrighteous Nature" or "Human Nature" or "Worldly Nature" or the "Self-will" of Man; while demon messengers are unrighteous thoughts generated by said "Self-centeredness".
Now let us examine other facets of YHVH's Holy Spirit (Righteousness Seeking Nature).
Greek #1043 meaning MAN of GOD [YHVH].
Greek #1403 meaning Friendly, Cheerful, "Glad Tidings". Here again we have a facet of the Spiritual Nature of YHVH, that behaves as a Preternatural influence. This mind altering influence is one of rejoicing. Such as when Gabriel brings messages of "Glad Tidings", but may, also, perform the natural function of a man; Gabriel performs the function of a Righteous deliverer of both Spiritual Seed, but, as a man, also, physical seed. It is believed that Gabriel is a Title given to "A High Priest" of "The Vine" (click).
Remember: A preternatural influence is psychological influence attributed to a person's (Spiritual) nature that has the power to rule over your personal thoughts or your mental state.
18 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.
19 And the angel (Spiritual Messenger) answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stands in the presence of YHVH; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these (messages of) glad tidings.
26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from YHVH unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the House of David; and the virgins name was Mary (Miryiam).
28 And the angel came in unto her (impregnated her). and said, "Hail, thou that art highly favored, YHVH is with thee (in her Nature): blessed art thou among women."
29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind (her mental status) what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the (High) angel (Gabriel) said unto her, "Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor (Grace) with YHVH."
Additionally, I recall that there is at least one reference in "The Book of Enoch" to a possible Archangel named Raphael.
Raphael: (meaning "YHVH has healed"). Assuming this is true, then (symbolically) Raphael would be a "Preternatural Healing Influence".
Now, I am sure this healing is mainly Spiritual (psychological), and I would be surprised if it included physical healing, except in cases where the physical illness was due to an unrighteous mentality (stress). Even so, Messiah has greater Spiritual powers (gifts) than the human Archangels (High Priest Titles of Michael, Gabriel or Raphael).
We, also, have a "Mighty Angel" (Greek #2478, Ischuros, meaning Mighty, loud, strong and valiant). This "Mighty Angel" or "Mighty Messenger" of Revelation chapter ten is none other than Messiah Yahshua himself. This, also, perfectly fits the definition of a righteousness seeking Preternatural Influence. Why? Because Messiah's entire life was his Righteous ministry (influence).
Read: "The Sacrifice of Messiah".
But wait, before anyone starts complaining that Messiah is no angel, because he was born a little lower than the angels, hear me out! Children (including Messiah) are not born perfected. Messiah had to be perfected through the things he suffered. Once Messiah accomplished being perfected, then he became our "High Priest" and an Archangel (Mighty Angel or Messenger). See for yourself, while you read the REVELATION of Messiah to John (below) .
The Revelation of Messiah Yahshua, which GOD gave unto him (Messiah), to show unto his servants (through JOHN) things which must shortly come to pass; and HE (YHVH) sent and signified [it] by his angel (Messiah) unto his servant John:
2 Who bare record of the word (Message) of GOD, and of the testimony (Message) of Messiah Yahshua, and of all things that he (JOHN) saw.
The simple fact is that it is Messiah that revealed everything to John, as per YHVH's instructions.
¶ And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
2 And he had in his hand a little book open (the symbolic "Book of Life" or "The Book of The Remembered"): and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the Earth,
3 And cried out with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices (sounded).
4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
5 And the (Mighty) angel (Messiah), which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the Earth, lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And swore by him (YHVH) that lives forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
7 But in the days of the voice (Message) of the seventh angel (Mighty Messenger OR Messiah), when he shall begin to sound (The Last Shofar OR Last Trumpet), the mystery of YHVH should be finished, as HE hath declared to HIS servants the prophets (according to prophecy).
8 And the (Loud) voice (of Messiah) which I heard from heaven spoke unto me again (as a vision), and said, Go and take the little book (of Life), which is open in the hand of the (Mighty) angel (or Messiah) which standeth upon the sea and upon the Earth.
9 And I went unto the (Mighty) angel (or Messiah), and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he (Messiah) said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
10 And I took the little book out of the angels (Messiah's) hand, and ate it up (consumed its knowledge); and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter (most of my family and friends were not listed).
11 And he (Messiah) said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
And the seventh angel (Messiah) sounded (The Last Trumpet OR Last Shofar); and there were great voices in the clouds, saying, "The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our FATHER YHVH, and of his Messiah; and HE (YHVH) shall reign forever and ever."
Do you have Spiritual "Ears To Hear" and "Eyes To See?"
Then know that Angels are Righteousness Seeking Men and Women, who are still physically alive or physically dead, but still Spiritually Alive.
Blessings and not cursings,
