“The Lamb’s Book of Life Revealed”
Last night after talking with my good friend Dean I asked him to do what we do sometimes just to see what comes out of it. Some people call it Bible Roulette, I call it good old fashion bible fun. You basically have your friend flip through the scriptures and when you feel it, you say stop. Whatever page they open to, you then pick one of the four columns, and give a number, and you come up with a single passage.
Now I have found that when I do this, sometimes I learn great things, other times I learn nothing at all. Yesterday was the former. The verse Dean opened up to was…
Rev 4:10The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne,
At first glance, you’d be like… “What the heck does this tell us?” – But it actually tells us a lot, and will start us off on a treasure hunt into the mystery of scripture.
Let’s first establish some things, how I go about understanding scripture is as follows. (Many times people ask me, “where do you come up with this stuff?”, so I figured now would be a good time to share that with you, and hopefully open your eyes to a new way of exploring the scriptures!)
First I take the words found in the verses of scripture, and then I use the rest of the canon of scripture to back up what I believe a verse means. I used a simple bible search engine, to look these things up. For example if a certain verse contains the word “thorns” in it, I would then read everything in scripture that mentions thorns, and very quickly I find the meaning of what the “thorns” are. In the case it is simple, Jesus clearly tell the disciples the thorns are the “cares of the world, and deceitfulness of riches”… Now, I also use science, and some other things the internet drums up to define my findings (revelations = Things revealed = understood now but once a mystery).
Now this is how it starts. I read a certain verse, and then WHAMO! Something hit me, like a light going off in my head. So I get this inspiration that a certain verse may mean something. But I can’t now go and share that, I must have some “witness” of it. Because “in the mouth of two of three witnesses the truth is established”… Meaning if what I believe in my heart is REALLY TRUE, there will be proof of it. So I begin to dig. I go to bible search engine and read all I can, then I go to the Strong’s if needed to find out what certain words literally mean. Then eventually that inspiration that hit me, and revealed to me what certain passages mean, like “Lightning from heaven”, well now I have more than just what I believe, “This is what that MUST mean.”
In order to get some confirmation and not just rely on an idea that popped into your head, we have to go and find a witness of that “new understanding” in scripture, science, etc. As we can’t just say something means something because we “feel” it does, as anyone proving a theory we must find data to back it up.
Now you may not realize this but you do this frequently when reading the scriptures. We all have the greatest teacher there is within. (The SPIRIT OF GOD which is within you)
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost… shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you
So when reading certain passages, something inside of us, will go, “Hey I KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS!” You won’t know why you know these things, but, you feel it, you think, THAT IS WHAT IT MUST MEAN!
Then if you go off and look for proof that your “Revelation” was in fact correct, you find that it was and it feels like you found a hidden treasure. And that is EXACTLY what the word (truth) of God is, a HIDDEN TREASURE inside this, our earthen vessels (egos).
So when looking at that scripture we flipped to, I use this method.
I’m going to prove to you right now, everyone has the gift of revelation, SO LONG AS YOU FREE YOURSELF FROM YOUR RELIGIOUS MIND! You have to let go of everything people have taught you, and allow the Creative Spirit of God within to teach you.
So let’s look at that passage again: This time with new eyes.
Rev 4:10The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
Okay, now I want you to have your own revelations. Let’s take it a word at a time. Now don’t think, just read the words I write and then pay attention to the FIRST THING THAT COMES TO MIND… And then we’ll see if that is what it is, by searching the scriptures for a “witness” of it.
Let’s start with the word “THRONE”… Where is the Throne of God? — FIRST THING THAT COMES TO MIND, not what people have taught you, where do you think God’s throne is? REALLY!
Okay, if you said, OUR HEART or OUR MIND, you JUST HAD REVELATION! Or you already had this revelation before reading this paper. Now if you said a Golden seat in a place called heaven far away, you did NOT have revelation, but you simply regurgitated what religion has told you. What I am attempting to do with this paper is to help people to see they don’t need man to teach them, the greatest teacher is within.
SO, is the throne of God, our Mind and Heart? Let’s see, by doing a simply internet biblegateway.com search of the word THRONE and reading everything we can about the word, to find where the throne is, and what it is.
The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD’s throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
Okay the first thing that stands out, is this scripture. God is IN his TEMPLE. And his THRONE is in Heaven. It should be obvious, the THRONE OF GOD is WITHIN US… As we are the TEMPLE.
1 Corinthians 3:16
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you
So we know the THRONE is not some far away place, but within us! Now let’s narrow it down to where.
But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment
The THRONE of God is prepared for Judgment. Another clue.
Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face
So we see Justice and Judgment are found at God’s throne. I think it’s safe to say, the place within us that Judgment resides is not the liver or kidneys. I would deduce, that the THRONE of God must be the MIND. Well if that is true, than we must see how important the MIND is to God.
1 Corinthians 2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.
It should be pretty safe to say, the THRONE of God is the Mind, where Judgment takes place. Of course we are talking about YOUR MIND, YOUR THOUGHTS! Not some far away kingdom in the sky. God is sitting on the THRONE OF YOUR MIND.
And that is how I interpret scriptures. It starts with a simple feeling, or an idea within, and then I seek it out to see if what I am “feeling/revelation” is true.
Now over the years, I have learned to look at scripture as symbols, and certain words have meaning to me. For example when Dean read that passage over the phone, he was saying one thing, and I was SEEING something completely different. I’d like to share that with you now.
Rev 4:10The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
So there are 24 Elders that have CROWNS… I know that a CROWN represents AUTHORITY/RULE. So these 24 Elders had to basically submit their AUTHORITY and RULE to the ONE THAT SITS ON THE THRONE. Since I know the THRONE OF GOD is the MIND, really I should say the physical Brain, Then I think to myself, there must be a physical representation of these 24 Elders that surround the THRONE (BRAIN).
Now for this, I go to another site. To study the brain, and as it turns out, (as you may have read in other articles I have written) there are 12 pairs of Cranial nerves that surround the Brain. 24 in total. And these 24 Cranial Nerves, MUST serve completely, and carry out whatever comes out of the THRONE.
Here is a good explanation of what the cranial nerves do:
The cranial nerves appear in pairs at the bottom surface of the brain. Their functions vary, but main functions include muscle control, helping the brain interpret the five senses, and controlling glands in the human body. Each cranial nerve pair controls specific functions of the human body
It’s interesting that the very thing that keep us in the bondage of this world is the TEMPORAL WORLD, and those FIVE SENSES. So we see in revelation, these Elders must be put in subjection to the one on the throne. In other words, the flesh body is completely put in subjection to the thoughts of God.
Cool right? Sure, but that is not what this paper is about. It is about the LAMB that takes the BOOK OF LIFE, and exactly what is found in this book, and what that means to us. I wanted to first establish, how you yourself can rightly divide the scriptures, and allow the spirit of Truth within you to lead you. Then i wanted to establish just where all of this Revelation John is having is taking place… It is ALL taking place in the mind.
So let’s move on, shall we?
11Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
This is the very next line. The 24 elders are stating that the ONE that SITS ON THE THRONE has CREATED ALL THINGS… But here is the important part, everything was created for THE ONE on the THRONE’S PLEASURE! In other words, everything that is, has been created by the SPIRIT OF LIFE running the show you call your life. WITHIN YOU! And everything that is happening, is happening according to a great plan, and it is for the PLEASURE of the ONE SITTING ON THE THRONE.
Ephesians 1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
Now, his good pleasure according to scripture is to GATHER ALL THINGS INTO CHRIST, meaning there only is CHRIST. Now this is the WILL of the ONE who sits on the throne, and it was purposed in HIMSELF, WHICH IS IN YOU! (If you can grasp that, you seriously have a gift)
Next line starts Rev 5
1And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
Notice in the RIGHT HAND is where the BOOK is. The book can only be found in the right hand.
A wise man’s heart is at his right hand; but a fool’s heart at his left
The “BOOK” is found as wisdom. And we know WISDOM is a TREE OF LIFE.
Many overlook an important detail here, the book was WRITTEN WITHIN, and on the backside (the completion of the book (the end)) sealed with seven seals. What that means is the END is SEALED UP, and it is impossible for any to find out the END, until the seven seals are broken.
First the question is, are these SEALS LITERAL? The answer should be obvious, NO! Since this is all taking place in our Mind, the SEALS are not literal seals, but they are thoughts that we cannot access, we cannot understand the end of the Book, because it is sealed. Meaning WE DON’T UNDERSTAND IT, that’s all.
And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:
It’s all about understanding. We cannot understand this BOOK, because we have been blinded to its meaning.
For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
We were made subject to vanity. The One sitting on the throne (some great minds call this the “Ghost in the Machine” – I call it the Holy Ghost in my Mind 🙂 But we now know, this has nothing to do with literal seals, but spiritual blocks put in place to keep us from understanding the END OF THE BOOK OF LIFE.
So what are these SEVEN SEALS that have to be broken? Is it more than the symbolism we find when each seal is broken? Well of course, the answer is yes. And I think it is no coincidence that I just wrote a paper about the SEVENTH DAY! You have never heard that the SEALS were literal days, and they aren’t, they are spiritual days/ages/periods of time that have been PURPOSED and when the time is right, one by one these days will begin and end.
Now where do I get that the SEVEN SEALS are the SEVEN DAYS of creation where God finally rests? The answer is within, not the trick is to find a witness of that in scripture.
And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end
But there is more. The BOOK that is SEALED is found in the RIGHT HAND, and it is SEALED. And who sits at the RIGHT HAND of the Father, Christ (The POWER AND WISDOM) of God. Now wouldn’t it be something if THE BOOK that is SEALED contains the Wisdom of God? – well it does.
Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
Here we see the SON OF MAN is what God has sealed. And what is SEALED within us, is GOD’S TRUTH, POWER, WISDOM, BLESSING, AND MORE… which you will soon find out.
So the BOOK that is SEALED, that we cannot understand, is our TRUE LIFE/ the Book of Life! Found in God’s right hand!
Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself
The SON OF MAN is upon the One on the Throne RIGHT HAND! And it is SEALED UP, in other words people, our lives are in God’s HANDS! And we cannot know the TRUTH of who we are until the SEALS ARE BROKEN! And to break these seals first the Book (that was written within you) must be taken from the RIGHT HAND of the ONE WHO SITS ON THE THRONE. And the problem here, is NO CARNAL MAN is worthy to take the book and open it.
2And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. 6And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 7And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
Now many read this and say, JESUS! And that is correct. BUT! If all things are gathered into ONE, is there any division? The question becomes who is this Lamb slain? IN 1st John we are told that “as He is so are we”, Jesus states, “greater things than these shall you do”, Jesus there is none good but the Father. But is Jesus the only Lamb Slain? If we are all ONE IN CHRIST, and scripture states we are crucified with Christ, that we partake of his suffering, in fact we are ONE, AS HE IS SO ARE WE? So in this account, we find the only ONE worthy to open the BOOK appears as A LAMB slain, which also has the SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD.
Well you don’t have to go far to find may passages where prophets are also considered a Lamb slain, or led to slaughter, in fact Jesus said, we are sent out as LAMBS among wolves.
But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered
For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now the LORD will feed them as a lamb in a large place
Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves
We see that only a broken, and slain Lamb, having SEVEN HORNS (THE SEVEN SPIRITS of God) can take the book and open it, to find the truth of who they are and the truth of all things. It is the Book of Life after all, found within us, written within us, and opened WITHIN US PEOPLE! — This is a fact many forget! If it all takes place within, that Book is taken within and opened within.
So the LAMB slain is a symbol of what we must become to finally open this book and understand the meaning of our existence. Now first of all, a Lamb slain has no choice, it is LED TO SLAUGHTER. So there is no carnal self effort, this is all part of the script. But for a clearer understanding let’s find out what the seven spirits are, and more of the puzzle unravels.
In Isaiah we find the seven spirits that are on this root of david.
1And a rod hath come out from the stock of Jesse, And a branch from his roots is fruitful.
2Rested on him hath the Spirit of Jehovah, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and might, The spirit of knowledge and fear of Jehovah. 3To refresh him in the fear of Jehovah, And by the sight of his eyes he judgeth not, Nor by the hearing of his ears decideth.
The seven spirits are the Spirit of God, Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Might, Knowledge, Fear… Now the key is the next line, which states — That the one who these SEVEN SPIRITS rest on, they will NO LONGER JUDGE BY LITERAL SIGHT OR HEARING… We will no longer rely on our temporal sensual understanding. Which makes sense, seeing as the 24 Elders (representing the Cranial nerves) are put under the power of the ONE ON THE THRONE. So of course, the LAMB will not judge the outward, but the inward.
When we have these SPIRITS resting on us, when we too have been through hell and back, as a LAMB SLAIN then, and ONLY THEN, will we be worthy to TAKE THAT BOOK from the ONE ON THE THRONE, and OPEN IT! WE MUST DIE TO WHO WE THINK WE ARE! TO FIND OUT WHO WE TRULY ARE IN GOD!
9And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
NOTICE the key words here, EVERY KINDRED, TONGUE, PEOPLE, NATION – this work is DONE WITHIN EVERYONE! And it is being done as I type this, we are all on our journey, one that has been written within us. And to open this book, As Jesus did, we too, must die to who we think we are.
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:
Now the SON OF GOD (which is ONE) DIED so we could live. Now we must die, so the SON OF GOD lives. In other words, playtime is over, it’s time to let go of everything we believe ourselves to be in this world. It is time to lay down our life in this world, take hold of this BOOK and find what is within it. And when you do, you will find, that what is WRITTEN in this book, and what you RECEIVE when you finally overcome and are worthy to take hold of this BOOK (which is your TRUE LIFE) YOU WILL RECEIVE
12Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
What did the Lamb receive (the Book) what did the Lamb receive (POWER, RICHES, WISDOM, STRENGTH, WISDOM, HONOUR, AND GLORY) – Now count those up… SEVEN things that were SEALED, no released. If you can receive this, that is awesome… The Lamb takes the book and receives (POWER, RICHES, WISDOM, STRENGTH, WISDOM, HONOUR, AND GLORY)
Now, as I conclude this essay I want you to consider something.
Anyone whose NAME (which literally translates into nature) is NOT written in the LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE is destroyed. So in the end all that remains for us, is what the LAMB RECIEVED (POWER, RICHES, WISDOM, STRENGTH, WISDOM, HONOUR, AND GLORY).
With each seal that is broken we come closer to the knowing the end from the beginning. With each seal that is broken we find the truth of our very existence, and as I stated and clearly proved with scripture this ALL TAKES PLACE WITHIN US! So that’s the good news, our sufferings will eventually lead us to being able to take hold of the BOOK OF LIFE and being worthy to recieve its contents… (POWER, RICHES, WISDOM, STRENGTH, UNDERSTANDING, HONOUR, AND GLORY) – Because at that point, we will use them RIGHTEOUSLY!
Of course, I could be completely wrong in everything I have written. It’s not my job to convince anyone anything, but it is my privilege to hopefully inspire all of you to seek the truth by going to THE ONE SITTING ON THE THRONE of your HEART/MIND/TEMPLE! Peace
