Chapter 4


THE WORD MADE FLESH


THE INCARNATION OF THE CREATOR

"The mystery of the incarnation of Christ, the account of His sufferings, His crucifixion, His resurrection, and His ascension, open to all humanity the marvelous love of the heavenly Family. This imparts a power to the truth." -- Review and Herald, June 18,1895

There are many events centered around the incarnation, the life, crucifixion and resurrection of Yeshua that are a mystery to us, but the scriptures tell us that "Surely the LORD God (YHWH Elohiym) will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets." -- Amos 3:7

"When we approach the subject of the Christ's divinity clothed with the garb of humanity, we may appropriately heed the words spoken by Christ to Moses at the burning bush, 'Put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standeth is holy ground.' We must come to the study of this subject with the humility of a learnerwith a contrite heart. And the study of the incarnation of Christ is a fruitful field, and will repay the searcher who digs deep for hidden truth." -- Manuscript 67, 1898

The story of Adam's creation, "formed of the dust of the ground" mixed with water - (water in the form of mist, a symbol of the Holy Spirit), prefigured the body created (fashioned) for the second Adam (Heb. 10:5) for a habitation of the Spirit. The water was defined as "living water" by Jesus to the woman at the well.

The Son of the Almighty, "a celestial Being," came down from Heaven and took a terrestrial body to demonstrate to mankind, on earth, how they could become "celestial beings" through an operation of His Spirit (1 Cor. 15:40).


IN HIM WAS LIFE, THE LIGHT OF MEN

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God (Elohiym), and the Word was God (YHWH). The same was in the beginning with God (Elohiym). All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and that life was the light of men... and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth... No man hath seen God (YHWH) at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him." -- John 1:1-4,14,18.

The only begotten Son inherited from His Father, the Heavenly David, through His Divine Mother, all power and glory that was Their's to give. He was the express image of His Father and the brightness of His Glory, the Father's Helpmate, the Divine Mother, possessing in Himself the Spirit and creative power of the Father. Since the Son possessed in Himself the same Spirit the Father had within Him, He was the fullness of the Godhead (Elohiym) bodily. In Him was life - the creative power of the Almighty.

"Christ the Word, the only begotten of God (El), was one with the eternal Father, - one in nature, in character, in purpose, - the only being that could enter into all the counsels and purposes of God (Elohiym -- the Father and the Mother)...."The Father wrought by his Son in the creation of all heavenly beings. " -- Patriarchs and Prophets, p 34 (parentheses supplied)

"Who is the image of the invisible God (Elohiym), the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:"-- Colossians 1:15,16.

The Only Begotten Son of the Almighty Father was the firstborn of every creature. He created all things as He spoke them into existence. In Him was the breathe of life, the divine creative power that He inherited from His Parents. "It is the spirit that quickeneth.... the words that I speak.... they are spirit, and they are life." (John 6:63).

The beings He spoke into existence and formed with the breathe of His mouth were all made in His Own image and were all called the sons of Elohiym. These were made in His express image in "form and feature". They appeared as males on the outside but had the female spiritual characteristic locked within their very being. Like Adam, they were male and female in one being.

"Now there was a day when the sons of God (Elohiym) came to present themselves before the LORD (YHWH), and Satan came also among them.... When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God (Elohiym) shouted for joy?" -- Job 1:6; 38:7.

The only feminine being in heaven that was separated from Her male counterpart was the Divine Mother. All the other beings created by the Son were made in His image. The Son was as the Father was before He manifested His Glory - male and female contained in one being. Therefore, these sons of God possessed the Spirit within their very beings; in them was Life - the breath of Life or Ruach. But the Only Begotten of the Father, the firstborn of David, was the only One authorized by the Father to use this power to create. This power which He received by inheritance was that of the Holy Spirit, the Divine Mother -- the Ruach ha Kodesh.

This inherent or inherited Life the Son of David possessed by birth gave Him all the attributes of His Father, making Him the express image of His person, the brightness of the His Glory, filled with the fullness of the Almighty. When the Son was begotten of His Father and conceived of His Divine Mother, He inherited the Divine characteristics of Both. He was outwardly male as the express image of His Father, while in Him was Life, creative power and immortality, which He received through and from the Divine Spirit Mother. He, like Adam, was two in one, possessing both the male and female attributes.

The Father's Power and Glory were passed on to Him through the Divine Mother and dwelt within His very being, making Him the fullness of God (El YHWH) bodily. This power and glory was His personal possession; the Spirit of the Son of David, His Ruach ha Kodesh, the Holy Ghost, veiled and hidden within Him as Eve was veiled and hidden within Adam, until she was brought forth as his helpmate. Remember, the creation of Adam and Eve is an allegory or story of the manifestation of the invisible divine attributes of Elohiym (Godhead), even Their eternal power and Family origin, so that we are without excuse if we do not understand or know Them (Romans 1:20).


THE FIRST-BORN OF HEAVEN IS BORN AGAIN IN THE EARTH

"And the angel answered and said unto her, the Holy Ghost (Ruach ha Kodesh) shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God (YHWH)." -- Luke 1:35

"Now the birth of Jesus Christ (Yeshua ha Massiach) was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost (Ruach haKodesh)." -- Matthew 1:18

"But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived (begotten) in her is of the Holy Ghost (Ruach ha Kodesh)." -- Matthew 1:20

In this last verse the statement is made, " that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost". In the margin, the translation for conceived is begotten. Here we have somewhat of a contradiction, or do we? How can one conceive and beget at the same time? The Savior was begotten by the Father before He took on flesh. When it came time for the Son of the Almighty to be incarnated as the Son of man, He returned to His original form when He was conceived in the bosom of the Father the Divine Mother. This was a direct act of the Elohiym's Creative Power.

The Seed of the Woman (the female egg) -- Her express image, the Holy Ghost -- became impregnated by the Seed of the Father -- His express image, the Only Begotten Son. Thus the First-born of heaven was slain from the foundation of the world that He might be born again through an earthly virgin of the lineage of David and take on human flesh. He gave up all His Divine Glory to be born as a man.

The Son had already been begotten of the Father in heaven. In order that He be incarnated in human flesh, the Messiah and His Ruach ha Kodesh returned to Their original form as the fertilized egg comprising the One Being (male and female) in the Divine Mother's womb. It was this same fertilized egg that was placed into Mary's womb by the Power of the Highest - the Divine Mother. Mary became the handmaid of the LORD (YHWH), a surrogate for the Divine Mother, who brought forth the Son of Elohiym through her flesh. At His birth Yeshua was born of a virgin and was full of the Holy Ghost (Ruach ha Kodesh). His name was Emmanuel which is translated "El" and/or "Eloah" is with us.

The Messiah was conceived and born in heaven before He was conceived of the Ruach ha Kodesh and born again of a virgin in the earth. The Divine Mother (Sarah) had implanted into Mary's womb Her own fertilized Seed. Only through Her surrogate Mary (Hagar), could the Son of the Almighty (Abraham) become the Second Adam, the Son of Adam or man (Son of promise) and take on human flesh which had come under the curse of Adam's sinful nature.

"And the angel answered and said unto her, the Holy Ghost (Ruach ha Kodesh - the Holy Breath of Life -- the female Seed of the Mother) shall come upon thee, and the power (the creative power or the Divine Mother) of the Highest (the Almighty Father) shall overshadow thee (implant Her fertilized Seed in thee): therefore also that holy thing (male/female or neuter fetus) which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of Elohiym." -- Luke 1:35

The Son of David was begotten-conceived of the Ruach ha Kodesh. The Seed of the Woman in Heaven, the Female David, conceived or was impregnated by the Male Seed of David, the Begotten of the Father. The Divine Mother, the creative power of the Highest, overshadowed Mary and implanted Her Fertilized Seed into her womb, in order that the Son of the Heavenly Davids would take on flesh through a daughter of the lineage of the earthly David (Luke 1:35). "For that which is conceived (begotten) in her is of the Holy Ghost -- Ruach ha Kodesh (the Holy Breath of Life)." -- Matthew 1:20.

The theory which most theologians have had over the centuries that the Holy Ghost as a male figure impregnated Mary is offensively immoral and outrageously incorrect! Since the truth has been shed on this mystery, we can now understand who the virgin Mary really was. She was not the "mother of God", but rather a surrogate for the Divine Mother into whom She implanted Her Impregnated Seed, and, who nurtured and gave to Her Son human flesh. It is much easier for us to comprehend how a virgin brought forth the Son of the Almighty since she was only the handmaid, the vessel, or the womb into which the Divine Mother implanted Her Fertilized Seed containing the Word and the Ruach ha Kodesh, all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. This is how the Word was made flesh. 

Modern science can prove that a virgin, when implanted with a fertilized egg of two other human partners, will bear a child without having lost her virginity. The virgin's own biological egg does not need to be impregnated. The child will receive flesh through the surrogate virgin, but will maintain the characteristics of the two that begot/conceived it. The lifestyle, environment, and disposition of the surrogate will influence the child growing in her womb. He was born of a woman, a daughter of Eve, but He knew no sin.


THE SON OF PROMISE IS BORN OF THE FREE WOMAN -- 

THE JERUSALEM ABOVE -- THE MOTER OF US ALL

Mary's purity and chastity was not violated and her own biological seed was not fertilized or impregnated by any male, whether he be divine or human. If Mary's own seed was impregnated then she could not have remained a virgin and this supernatural birth would have been like any other human birth. Joseph would have been lied to by the Angel who told him to not put Mary away, but to take her as his wife. If a divine male being did impregnate Mary's seed, the sin of adultery and fornication would have been committed by the parties involved and the "Son of Promise" would have been conceived in sin and would have been an illegitimate child. In order for the Son of the Almighty to be of the lineage of the heavenly David, the Seed of the Divine Father and the Seed of the Divine Mother, through a direct act of creation, had to be placed by the Divine Woman into Her human surrogate to preserve her purity.

The lineage of an Israelite is determined through the lineage of the mother, not the father. In the birth of Isaac, the son of promise, Sarah represents those who are born of the Spirit -- the Jerusalem above Who is the Mother of us all (Gal 4:26). Although Abraham's seed brought forth Ishmael, he was born of the flesh (Hagar), not of the Spirit (Sarah). Therefore, to be of the seed of Abraham means more than just being of the fleshly lineage of Abraham. To be a legitimate son of Abraham (the Father above) one must be born of the Spirit, through a direct act of recreation. A son of Abraham will do the works of Abraham which can only be carried out through the indwelling of the Spirit after he has been born from above. Therefore, Yeshua was not only "the Son of David", but He was also "the Son of promise" whom Isaac prefigured. His lineal origin was from both the Seed of the Father in heaven (Abraham-David) and the Seed of the Mother in heaven (Sarah -- the Jerusalem above, the Mother of us all. Gal 4:26).

Mary was the surrogate mother through whom the "Son of Promise" received the blood-line of the fleshly Abraham-David. Through Mary was perfectly fulfilled the allegory of Hagar and Sarah. The Spiritual "Son of Promise" was born of the Spirit and of the flesh at the same time. In this antitype the Divine Mother asked Mary to be Her handmaid (fleshly bondwoman - Hagar) and to bear a son for the Divine Father (Abraham), since the Shekhinah could not bear Him a fleshly son Herself. Mary consented to give flesh to the "Son of Promise," Who was conceived of the Holy Ghost -- the Seed of the Heavenly Woman, the Spirit Mother of us all -- and was born of a virgin -- a fleshly bondwoman (Hagar).


THE ALLEGORY OF THE SON OF PROMISE: A WOMAN SHALL COMPASS A MAN

"For Elohiym hath created a new thing in the earth, a woman shall compass a man." Jeremiah 31:22. "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, Elohiym is with us." -- Matthew 1:23.

The first Adam was created a full grown mature man; he compassed the woman Eve within him, as symbolized by the rib. But not so with the Son of man/Adam. A woman or virgin compassed Yeshua, the Son of Elohiym, that He might be born as a babe, not a full grown man. Only a woman can naturally give birth. Therefore, a female body or temple was prepared for Yeshua to dwell in that He might be compassed by her flesh and partake of her humanity.

The only begotten of the Father was compassed by a woman in both the spiritual and the physical sense. The Holy Ghost, the Spiritual Seed of the Divine Mother, was the egg/ovum that received and compassed the Spiritual Seed of the Father, the Word, the Only Begotten of the Father. This Divinely Fertilized Seed was planted in the womb of a virgin who compassed It with her flesh (earth) and water. The Fullness of Elohiym dwelt bodily within an earthly fleshly body temple that He might become the Son of man, the Second Adam, filled with the creative power of His Ruach ha Kodesh, the Shekhinah Glory, the Second Eve. The Son of the Almighty could only come through a virgin birth. It was the only way the Savior of the world could be manifested and fulfill the prophecy. He also had to come as man's equal to be tempted in all points as we are that He might demonstrate to us His power to overcome Satan.


THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH AND DWELT AMONG US, 

AND WAS TEMPTED IN ALL POINTS AS WE ARE

The Son of God (YHWH) came to establish the Plan of Salvation in the earth and to restore what the first Adam had lost. The Second Adam Who was male and female in One Being came to challenge Satan who was also male and female in one being. The Savior was slain from the foundation of the world. He gave up His Glory (His Shekhinah Bride) and position as King and Judge in heaven. He veiled His Glory within sinful flesh that He might challenge and overcome Satan and win back Adam and Eve's dominion in the earth and to restore to them their divine inheritance as part of the Family of Elohiym.

The Creator humbled Himself and was born again of a virgin that He might condescend to meet Satan as the Second Adam. Lucifer chose to give up his exalted position in heaven and promote his own personal agenda instead of Elohiym's Plan. Satan had fallen from glory by entering into sin. He left his position beside the Father's Glory to promote himself and his own agenda. Comparatively, the Savior chose to give up His crown of Glory and His position beside the Father, that He might promote the Father's agenda and establish the Plan of Salvation in the earth. The Son of Elohiym left heaven and veiled His Glory in sinful flesh so that He might glorify His Father's name and restore His Kingdom in the earth.

The Holy Ghost prepared a body for the Son of man (Heb 10:5,7). She was the power and instrumentality through which the Creator fashioned for Himself a body, as a son of Adam, and of the seed and blood-line of Abraham and David. Through His feminine creative power working in Mary's womb, the Creator manifested Himself in human flesh. He did not speak Himself into existence, but He was conceived by the Spirit Mother in Heaven and formed by His Holy Ghost (Ruach ha Kodesh) from the blood and the flesh of the handmaid of the Lord. It was a combined effort of divinity and humanity that brought forth the Emmanuel. He had to be made of the earth, Mary, and of the Spirit, the Divine Mother, in order to fulfill the type of the first Adam. The first Adam was formed by the Creator and His Helpmate, His Ruach ha Kodesh, out of the dust of the ground. The Second Adam was begotten/conceived by the Divine Father and Mother and given form through His Ruach ha Kodesh in co-operation with an earthly vessel, Mary His surrogate mother.

Satan caused the earthly woman, Eve, to sin and create his image of unrighteousness in the earth. The Heavenly Woman put Her Seed into an earthly woman, to redeem and restore what Eve lost through disobedience. The earthly woman, Mary, obeyed Elohiym's request that she bring forth Their Son without having known a man and without having herself conceived. The Divine Mother would bring forth Her Son in the flesh, through an earthly woman, a virgin, who in faith surrendered her womb that the Seed of the Heavenly David might take root in this earthen vessel. Through this "Promised Seed" both man and woman would be restored to the Kingdom of Righteousness as they were in the beginning.


THE SON VEILED HIS GLORY

"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace." -- John 1:14,16.

When the Son of David came to this earth to tabernacle among us, He veiled His inherited Glory in humanity. The Word was made flesh through a virgin of the lineage of King David. Thus, the Son of the Almighty became the Son of man/Adam. The Only Begotten Son of David was born again in the earth through the earthly blood line of David (through Mary not Joseph) to restore man's spiritual inheritance in the Kingdom of the Heavenly David.

Jesus the son of David (Yeshua ben David) came to earth to re-establish His righteous lineage and restore the House of His Father David in the earth. As the Second Adam, He came to establish the Plan of Salvation (Yeshuw'ah) which successfully eliminated Satan and his rebels from the courts of heaven. Through this Plan, the Second Adam and His Helpmate would be fruitful and multiply Their righteous images and have dominion over the earth, and subdue every creature, even Satan and his rebellious host. Yeshua and His Ruach ha Kodesh will return Their Royal heritage to Adam and Eve and their descendants, as Their adopted children, restored to the Family and the Kingdom of David.

"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt (tabernacled) among us, and we beheld his glorythe glory as of the only begotten of the Fatherfull of grace and truth. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.... That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God (Ruach or Life of Elohiym). And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace." -- John 1:4-16

In the above Scriptures we are told that the only begotten Son of Elohiym was made flesh, and that we beheld His Shekhinah Glory because He was full of grace and truth. The inherent light, the Shekhinah that was within Him, shone in this dark world, but it was not comprehended nor was it received by the majority. The Creator came unto His own creation and they rejected Him. Those that did receive Him and the Light, were given the power to become His sons, the sons of Elohiym. This true Light that was in the Word made flesh was His power to create and give life - His inherent creative power, His Ruach ha Kodesh.

The Creator came to earth as the Word made flesh to speak forth His Father's will. The words of His mouth were spoken with power and authority bringing forth the sons of Elohiym in the earth. Even when we receive His words today, we are born again through His Ruach ha Kodesh, the Spirit of Prophecy, into the heavenly Family or House of David.

Therefore, we can see, that the Second Adam could be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth with the image of Elohiym and have dominion over the earth through His Helpmate and creative power, His Ruach ha Kodesh. The Shekhinah was veiled within His fleshly body temple, for She had not yet been manifested. She is the Light that shines in the darkness of this earth, but the darkness receives Her not. In Him was Life and the Light that lighteth men. Veiled by His flesh, the Shekhinah Glory, dwelt in the Most Holy Place of the Living Temple of YHWH, the Son of the Almighty.

The pen of Inspiration indicates this in the following statement from "The Desire of Ages", p 52:

"The Shekhinah had departed from the sanctuary, but in the Child of Bethlehem was veiled the glory before which angels bow."

When He was transfigured before three of His disciples, a glimpse of that same Glory was given. Humanity was given a glimpse into the Most Holy Place of the Living Tabernacle of YHWH to see the Shekhinah Glory resting upon the Mercy Seat of the Savior's heart.

The Son of Elohiym came to dwell among us that we might see the Father's Glory (His Shekhinah) manifested in human flesh. Yeshua came to baptize humanity in the Holy Ghost and with fire. He came to demonstrate to sinful humanity a life that is governed by the Shekhinah; a life immersed in and covered by the Spirit of Life.

His Ruach ha Kodesh was the Shekhinah Glory which filled His body temple and gave Him power and authority over Satan, sin and death. The miracle working power He used in healing the sick, giving sight to the blind, making the dumb hear, casting out devils, raising the dead, etc., was all the work of the Shekhinah dwelling within Him.

Yeshua ha Massiach had no more power than you and I would have if we were fully surrendered to His Spirit (Ruach ha Kodesh). If we understood this, we would understand the Plan of Salvation. The Plan of Yeshuw'ah, which is simply the visible manifestation of the Yeshua's Glory in heaven and in the earth. The Family in heaven, Elohiym, devised this plan to demonstrate to the universe the Son's true position, and thereby, overcome Satan and sin in the universe. The Only Begotten Son is the Fullness of Elohiym bodily - in the flesh and the spirit. Through the Creator's manifested Glory, we may be born again of His Spirit and restored to the Family of Elohiym.
