Before any of us were anything we began as thoughts formed in the mind of God and given a portion of His Light and His Name.
Our form and portion of His Name can be understood as a letter being a portion of a word. The letter standing alone could form any word and so it lacks meaning by itself. It is only when joined back to the word from which it came that it finds the purpose and meaning of its origin and destiny.
Our portion of His Light is as a single color in the spectrum of pure light when divided by a prism. You can think of this also as a single color from a rainbow of colors. Every portion of Light is less than the light from which it came in both brightness and intensity. While any light in a dark room will look bright (even as the moon looks bright in the night sky while only being a dim reflection of the light from the sun), in the presence of its source Light, it's brightness and individual color fades away. We see this also in how brightly colored cars or fabrics fade in time from exposure to the light of the sun.
This is who we all are. We were all taken from our first estate in the bosom of the Father, placed within a trance, taken through a veil, and set within this dark dimension (which we call our universe) for the purpose of being tested and rewarded according to our choices of faith.
In order to function within this dimension, we were given bodies (like environmental suits used to explore deep seas.) So we first existed as entities in the mind of God, took the form of a letter and color assigned by God, and then took the form of flesh (also assigned by God) within a long lineage beginning with Adam (even Eve was taken from Adam.) But our true origin began before our first birth into this dimension. This is why Jesus said we must be born again... not by water but by fire.
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
1 Peter 1:23
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
It is only by exposure to the grace and truth of God that our awareness of our first existence begins to dawn on us.
This dawning is known as the Day Star rising in our hearts. The presence and power of God working in the hearts of all those who learn of and keep covenant with Him begins to thaw everything that was frozen from the winter season so that work can begin within the field of our souls to bring forth fruit pleasing in the sight of God.)
So then, there is the first thread of our pre-existence which is interrupted by the veil separating Light from darkness. While we came forth from the Light, we cannot see God in our present form (letter and color.)
Another thread began with our first birth into this dimension (known by the angels of fire as the waters.) From that thread we became knit together in the fabric of garments of death (which most call life.) King David referred to this dark dimension as the valley of the shadow of death (Psalm 23:4)
As Jesus said, we cannot see God or know Him by the perspective of that first birth or by the limited form and dimness of our own letter and color. We must be joined back to the Word and Light from which we came: Christ. Christ is the Word of God and Christ is the Light of God.
In order to receive instruction in the doctrine of Christ, we must all go through a separation and cleansing from that thread of death. This separation begins with our being born again by the baptism of the Holy Spirit evidenced by the manifestation of tongues. Have you received this seal from the Father?
It is by this new experience of the seal with tongues that we're able to begin our cleansing from false indoctrination and from the fruit of iniquity which we had been nurturing within our hearts so that we can be made into vessels of God's glory ready to be presented back to Him with shouts of joy as those who have grown up into the fullness and stature of Christ even the midst of such great contradiction as this world.
Would you like to receive instruction in the apostles doctrine with assistance in going through your separation and cleansing from the kingdom and power of darkness? If yes, we'll need to know if have you yet received this baptism of fire with the evidence of tongues and then we'll be able to assist you in either seeking Him for this seal of His Spirit or in learning to work with the Spirit of God with faith perfected in Christ.
