In this world the truth is not just the truth, but it also has a heavenly purpose. It is not mystical, it is logical. Those who don't understand grasp at patterns, symbols that match, and antidotes that inspire. Those who understand the purpose of human life soon just stand back and watch it happen just as it was written. By who was it written? By God. He has set us on an upward spiralling path to his house in heaven. It is a place beyond the 6 dimensions of this world.(6 directions)
THE SUN, THE MOON AND THE STARS.
The heavenly bodies which can be seen in the sky bring us light. The stars bring just a glimmer and a twinkle, the moon reflects a dull pale light and the Sun illuminates the world into full daylight. In the Bible the Sun, the moon and the stars are used to represent the three rules of governance in this world.
"Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the Sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night,...." Jer.31;36
Just as the heavenly bodies each shine differing degrees of light unto us, so too do the three laws and ordinances give us different degrees of understanding and protection.
1. The Stars represent the words of the Prophets which brought the Tribes of Israel advice and understanding.
2. The Moon represents the written Law which Moses taught to the Tribes of Israel to prepare them to enter into the Old Testament Covenant. It called for an enforcement of "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." Ex.21;24
3. The Sun represents the New Christian Covenant that teaches us to add "Compassion and Mercy" to the Law of Justice. This was demonstrated to us when Jesus continued to heal on the Sabbath. Mt.12;10 Mk.3;2 Lk.6;7 Jn.7;23
The Sun, the Moon and the Stars were all created on the 4th day of Genesis. Gen.1;16 But each of them shines a different type of light and represents a different law. They each have their own type of people to whom they appeal. They each have their own flocks to guide. This is what I Cor.15;41 means when it says;
"There is one glory of the Sun, and another glory of the Moon, and another glory of the Stars."
"The Sun to rule by day: Moon and Stars to rule by night." Ps.136;8,9
THE DEVELOPMENT OF CIVILIZATION WAS PRE-RECORDED IN THE HOLY BIBLE.
It is possible to see the development and the progression of these three forms of government with the aid of history books and with the Bible. When Adam and Eve are described as leaving the garden of Eden it was into a harsh and natural world of the "survival of the fittest." That is why Gen.2;17 says;
"......cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee;..."In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread." Gen.3;19
During this first 2000 year period that began with Mesopotamian Civilization human beings strengthened and sustained themselves in the natural world by using the methods of "survival of the fittest." They used the methods of capitalism and applied these to every aspect of life. It was dog eat dog and the strongest and the most clever soon got ahead of their brothers in every perspective of life. And whenever there arrived a very clever and most innovating man he was as a star adding light and a greater glimmer of understanding to the ones around him. This method of natural selection and of having the populous of humanity following the brightest men,(stars/prophets) made Mesopotamian and Egyptian Civilizations to develop into invigorated, innovative and prosperous societies.
But when the covenant of the Moon arrived it brought a light much brighter than that of the Stars. Under Moses's directions from God this covenant began the Law of Justice among men. When the 12 tribes of Israel crossed into the Promised Land they had the intention of establishing the first government of equal justice among men. They even added an equalizing Jubilee to keep the economy equal and just. Lev.25;50
This new covenant of the Moon was the Law of Justice understandable to all mature human beings. This method of government made each individual feel more worthwhile and justified in his right as a citizen compared to how life had been under nature. Now instead of creeping around in danger, he had security and could now go out to plow his field without taking his weapons. The law of justice was a light for the people in the Civilizations living under it. But they were still living in the "night-time." (for this reason the verses of Genesis say "the evening and the morning were the .....day."Gen.1;5 But this phrase stated describes the night-time!)
But when the night had ended and the day-time did arrive, the understanding of human beings was greatly illuminated in pure sunshine. When the day arrived the "moon" immediately turned invisable. Just as our moon in this physical world remains in the sky, but is unseen in the daytime, so too does the law of Justice remain, but invisibly for the people living under the light of the Sun. The light of the Sun is as the Christian Second covenant and it is a light from "within." Jer.31;31 Heb.8;10
The Law of Justice and also much much more is under this light which isfollowed from each individuals heart and mind. This law from within adds "Compassion and Mercy" to Justice. In this way it is the most superior law that humanity can know.
"For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in thier hearts;..." Heb.8;10
