When the Lord gave me an inkling In December that He wanted me to do this series I had absolutely no idea where He would lead me. I let the Holy Spirit be my guide. I study the plagues each year, but as my studies are in the spring, it is always rushed. This time I lingered in the Word and soaked up whatever He wanted me to learn. He highlighted so many insights that are applicable only in today's End of Days context. As with the other plagues, I was surprised that the Lord wanted me to focus on being alive in Jesus Christ for this last plague, as we face the perilous days where there are human looking shells and humans who are biologically alive, but spiritually dead. Being alive has never been more critical to preserving humanity. God speed to you all in these days. Celeste
A week ago the domestic and wild animal were acting spooky. From experience I knew that either a storm or earthquake would occur in less than 24 hours. It turned out to be an earthquake jolting my farm. It is said in Legend the following:
When dogs whine the Angel of Death is in town. When dogs howl, especially at the midnight hour, a time of strict Judgment is in play. It is said that the dogs howled the night of the Plague of the First Born, but only towards the Egyptians.
All the other plagues were so named for the agent God used but in this last plague He names it for the victims not the perpetrator.
As we peer into insights from the Plague of the Firstborn, I am proposing that you and I are staring into the Abyss of this plague, right this moment. The world in which we live has two distinct aspects:
- The World of Things, containing physical things that operate according to the confines of the Laws of Nature, and
- World of Being Alive, containing those parts of the world which act in free-will.
Currently, there is a war on three unique attributes of a human (once again this set of three that we have noticed from the 10 Plagues of the Exodus):
- Your human breath
- Your human soul (mind/consciousness)
- Your human inheritance
I dare say that the satanic beast system, using science as a tool, is driving humanity like herding cattle into what is being dubbed the World of Things.
“Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.” O'Brien, 1984
The Battle for your Brain is trending with novel neuroweapons that grant adversaries the ability to disrupt, degrade, damage, kill, and even “hack” human brains to influence populations.
You are not a thing; you are a human, although we are rapidly loosing our birthright distinction passed down from God to Adam and Adam down through the generations to us. The firstborn from the mother opens her womb. The firstborn of the father is entitled to a double portion of his father's inheritance. From the original language root, the first of any of God's provisional 'fruit' is firstborn or firstlings. This can be fruit, vegetables, animals, or mankind. Birthright is successive beginning with God to man.
To Be Alive
I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades (Revelation 1:18).
As humans we are created in the Divine Image of God who blows the breath of life into each of us and then provides us a receptacle in our physical body houses the soul or consciousness and we are provided a rich birthright inheritance that we are privileged to pass down throughout our generations.
We are distinct from things in that we are living and alive unto God imbued with creative energy from God. We are regenerated through the resurrection blood of Jesus Christ. In Christ shall all be made alive. 1 Corinthians 15:22; Our soul is nourished and preserved for life Reckon .... yourselves .... alive unto God, as those that are alive from the dead. Romans 6:11:13 KJV Not only do we live in this life but in Jesus Christ we live for all eternity, being made to live again.
The World of Being Alive simply means: living, to live, to live again, to revive, to keep alive, nourish up, preserve life, recover, repair, restores, revive, save, and to be made whole. Being alive includes many God given promises that are truth and are trustworthy. This in your natural environment or habitat including before you were a twinkling in your parents eyes, your birth, development, transient death, and eternal life. For you to sojourn even momentarily in the World of Things is to be dead in this world (possibly biologically functioning) and the next world. It is ungodly and unnatural. The human norm is to wholeheartedly embrace your humanity with all of its strengths and weaknesses.
There is nothing that can be more alive than abiding in Jesus Christ as we see below:
And he is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation, Colossians 1:15, is above time and with power and authority. All things have been created through him, and unto him, Colossians 1:16. He is sovereign Lord over all creation by virtue of primo-geniture. It denotes His status and character and not His origin. [as He is not created].
Jesus in literal sense of the firstborn of the firstborn of men and animals, Hebrews 11:28
As Messianic King Jesus is God’s firstborn, the highest of the kings of the earth, Psalm 89:27 Philo applies the word to the Logos [Word made flesh] as the archetypal and governing idea of creation.
His incarnation He is brought into the world as “firstborn,” and God summons all His angels to worship Him, Hebrews 1:6.
The World of Things is the aspect of the world which the natural sciences can explain including atoms, rocks, planets, stars, galaxies, earth, fire, air, water, and even tools would all count as parts of The World of Things. By contrast, the World of Being Alive is the aspect of the world that involves vitality. You and your loved ones are a human being(s) with desires, plans, hopes, and disappointments; so are you, your loved ones and friends. Laws of nature need not govern our behavior as we have the Holy Spirit in Residence. We don’t need the inner mechanisms of these tools to be explained; we do need however to be guided by God through His written Word. Unfortunately, we are at war and satanic influencer's desire to be your guide.
It is essential that mentally divide up the world in this way.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. II Timothy 2:15 KJV
We need to stand against the covert unspoken or spoken sotto voce of modern consensus that erases distinctions and borders leading us to the fallacious belief that only science is capable of accounting for everything in the world, including human behavior and now challenges even how it feels to be human.
This is how the World of Things interfaces with the World of Being Alive:
World of Things: Where you are. In front of you, you have this article displayed on a computer screen. Beyond it is furnishings o your home or office. The rest of your house is beyond and outside is your car. Inside and all around are material objects whose behavior can be explained by those studying the sciences.
World of Being Alive: You are reading this article post. Perhaps you are inspired by the Scripture verses or biblical concepts presented. Perhaps you are just intrigued desire to learn something new. Whatever your thoughts are, explaining them by the laws of nature seems both impossible and beside the point. They are thoughts and you meander from one thought to another by associations that might involve the rules of logic or by other principles, or by no principles whatsoever. You are not a computer, whose states follow an algorithm computation. I truly believe that you as a human are spontaneously thinking your thoughts in your consciousness, unconsciousness, and within your soul.
So just sitting still and reading, you are participating in both aspects of the world at once. You interact with her in both aspects of the world. It is one world, after all. That is the beauty, and the uniqueness, of it all.
These two aspects don’t divide the world in any spatial sense. Our bodies are all a part of the World of Things, but then each of us as a person is a part of the World of Being Alive. For most of us sharing with our fellow human beings as human beings is by far the most valuable aspect as opposite to things. There are billions of subjectivities connecting with billions of sites for the two aspects of the world to come into intimate contact bringing about our wonderful life.
I am awe-struck by the grandeur of a world in which billions of us find our lives so precious, lived together with each other in the World of Being Alive. Though physics, astronomy, biology, or any of the other sciences may illuminate the World of Things; they are far from exhausting what is magnificent.
You were brought up as a participant in the modern world and you more than likely believe that science will figure it all out eventually. But how many of us really believe this to be true, especially in moments either of great joy or great pain?
The value of vividly envisioning both aspects of the world is that it invites us to be mindful that the world is being propelled in two directions, not only downward toward mechanistic world, but also upward in the direction God as we infuse eternal glory into our lives. Explanations are ubiquitous. May we continue to learn how creation works. But we also need to press onward towards the loftier goal of the finish line, urgently striving to live out what Jesus Christ desires for us at this period in history. We were born for such a time as this.
Musing on World of Being Alive
The air is very cold and still: except for the sound of my own breathing, the silence is absolute. The dry, powdery snow crackles whenever my boot touches down. Its perfect whiteness, lit by starlight, gives the terrain a luminous, eerie brilliance, while the stars fade into a continuous glow across the black celestial dome. The night is brighter on this desolate planet than on my home world. Beauty, but of a cold and lifeless kind: a place for metaphysical contemplation, if ever there was one.
Alone I have time to contemplate the day’s events and to watch the sky for meteors. As my gaze goes upward I am awestruck by the sheer enormousness and personal nature of the universe. Spinning galaxies, the endless expansion of the universe, and the infinite coldness of space, fiery stars being born, and their final death throes as red giants: surely this point toward intelligent design. My life seems so small to the intricacies of the universe: a dot on a pinpoint planet which circles a star, our sun with its tremendous influence.
In the frigid short sunlight hours of mid-winter I had hike through drifts of snow and on occasion I may find a fellow traveler. There are some small cabins along the way. Time weathered ruins tiny small cabins with low rusted corrugated roofs, very much deserted. This is a deja vous moment from my youth, a meeting place of time and space. I knocked on doors, but no life appeared. Through dusty and rain splattered windows my mind surged with curiosity as I peered into the spooky interior darkness. As if frozen in time a primitive dusty table is set with dusty enamelware awaiting the return of hits owner. I simple iron frame held a well worn mattress whose coverlet was the multitude of cobwebs. A few pans, an old green blanket, and crude shelves upon the walls with several rusted can canned goods and a lone bible. No signs that life had been there for some time, maybe decades. It was as cold inside as it was outside in its abandonment. Who inhabited this dwelling place? Did they know love or sorrow? Was this merely a get-away or an abode? How many prayers were lifted up to the Almighty here? Did joy dwell in this humble cabin? In silence, I hiked back to my on cabin.
Do I like this cold wintry scene? In all my travels only one remotely compared to the beauty of soaring peaks and nighttime vistas of the Swan testifying to the glory of God and this is why I remain.
This captures the essence of humanity moving us toward a more intimate connection with our fellow man whether past, present, or future. Sparks truly do fly between us as we interact with each other.
In our contemplation's, do we find beauty and life even in the cold and lifeless whether the nighttime sky or a frigid snowdrift landscape?
Our reflections indicate which worldview Things or Being Alive that we have embraced.
God, man, and life seem irrelevant …
Or, God, man, and life are relevant.
A lingering non sequitur is the vivid evocation of the joys of life shared with fellow human being, even if they but live in the past. I am somewhat downcast for I was not able to engage with this life, which left but a few antiquated artifacts of a life lived in humility and modesty. Life drew me to this small cabin where the shadow of a person once dwelt and where I walk today, the present and past linked by common humanity.
I can’t think of a better example of the value of seeing our world in terms of the Two Aspects, the World of Things and the World of Aliveness.
Do you believe that profound insights only come from contemplation of the World of Things? Or, are your treasured experiences as an inhabitant of the World of Being Alive?
The art of being human created in the Image of God is truly more important than the study of physical systems the end result of which we know will be the Anti-Christ system revolting warring against God. If only more of us realized this! May we retire this kind of blindness for we are deluding ourselves!
Will humanity be as Esau being born first, Genesis 25:25, and entitled to the birthright, but eventually selling that birthright for a price? Scripture indicates that most of humanity will sell their birthright, Genesis 25:31-34
How many people will even stop to count the cost?
The Egyptians also attached significance to Primogeniture and birthright. The death of Pharaoh and the Egyptian's firstborn in Exodus 12 at the first Passover is direct recompense for God's identification of Israel as his own firstborn.
The Ipuwer Papyrus says, “Forsooth, the children of princes are dashed against the walls” (4:3 and 5:6). “Forsooth, the children of princes are cast out in the streets” (6:12). “He who places his brother in the ground is everywhere” (2:13). “It is groaning throughout the land, mingled with lamentations” (3:14).
Within the discussion of First Born we might also want to consider some related topics such as does the comprehensive model of the first born as applied to humans when a human mother converts her body to either an augmented or virtual entity or otherwise engages in some other technological abomination. Would her child be covered by the blood of Jesus Christ? Does that child belong to the World of Being Alive or the World of Things? Given the example of the nephilim, I would say no for the offspring and offspring of those unions were to be killed.
In the culture of the Hebrews the rights of the firstborn were transferred at the sin of the Golden Calf to the priesthood. However, according to some, this role will be given back to the firstborn during Third Temple times or when the Messiah [Jesus] comes.
And he is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation (Colossians 1:15).
We hear of many kings in the Book of Revelation that sound frightfully dreadful but we have assurance that Jesus is Ruler over all the kings of the earth, even over the locust king and angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew Abaddon. This provides us with great comfort.
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. Revelation 1:5
Alive! First Born of the Dead
God hardens Pharaoh's heart so that His supernatural wonders can be multiplied.
The Egyptian astrologers had informed Pharaoh that the ill-omened star Ra [evil Mrs] stood pitted against Israel to confound and annihilate them. To wit, Behold, evil confronts. By prior design, God made it evident to Pharaoh that at that hour (midnight associated with Mars), that which the Egyptians feared more than God, that the firstborn of Egypt would perish and the Israelite's saved. Furthermore, the affliction would not via the celestial body that stood in inauspicious configuration but will be caused by God, nullifying the astrological indications for that planet.
The Plague of the First Born struck at the heart of the Egyptian men and women. It began with striking the Throne of Pharaoh, his authority first then unto all Egypt and even the worshiped beasts as God executed judgment against all the Egyptian gods. For men the first born was their legacy and future inheritance. For the women it struck the fruit womb, a provision of God even if they did recognize it as such. The cry of anguish was so great that it is described in Apocalyptic terms that it was understood [in the feminine] to mean such as over it there had been none like it, nor such over it shall be a cry like it any more. Such like it refers to havoc, calamity, death and the like. The other time we see this language is at the time of the Abomination of Desolation:
Pray that your flight will not occur in the winter or on the Sabbath. For at that time there will be great tribulation, unmatched from the beginning of the world until now, and never to be seen again. If those days had not been cut short, nobody would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, those days will be shortened..Matthew 24:20-22.
As with the beginning of these plagues we return to the Blood for only if one had the blood on the door did the Angel of Death pass by.
In His resurrection Jesus is firstborn from the dead, Colossians 1:18 and of the dead Revelation 1:5, He is the origin and prince of life.
As the head of a new, redeemed humanity destined in the eschatological transfiguration to bear the impress of His image. Jesus is firstborn among many brethren in the consummation of God’s purpose of grace, when all the elect are gathered home. Not only is He their Lord, but also their pattern, God’s ideal Son and men are foreordained to be conformed to (His) image, Romans 8:29, which is why we cannot become a node in the World of Things and bearing its image.
Therefore the saints themselves, as growing in His likeness, and as possessing all the privileges of eldest sons, including the kingdom and the priesthood, may we be called the church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, Hebrew 12:23.
“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?"
I Corinthians 15:56
