The Illusion Of Our World


Scriptures Commented On (In Order Of Appearance): 1 Cor. 13:12, Ex. 8:22-23, 26, Rev. 6:8, Hos. 6:2, Ex. 8:23, Ecc. 3:11, Lk. 19:13


<LivingEM> Is there anyone who does not know that there has been a massive earthquake in Turkey?

<JSNGSNG> Yes. There are more than 3500 people dead.

<PEARLMERCHANT> Yes, and many still buried, presumably, alive.

<LivingEM> There was an earthquake in California also, but it was minor. I asked the Lord, "why Turkey?" but I have heard no answer as yet. Does anyone have anything to say about the situation in the world, or their own spiritual experiences? Does anyone have any comments about anything ?

<JSNGSNG> Jesus made a way to restore the relationship between brothers yesterday.

<LivingEM> That is good news. Praise the Lord! Anyone else?

<JSNGSNG> Thank you for all the prayers. Thank you Jesus.

<LivingEM> You are welcome.

<LAMB> My daughter was given a clean bill of health.

Praise the Lord!

<LivingEM> My present spiritual understanding of the increasing chaos in the world is that this world is an illusion which has been erected by the collective carnal mind. Our world exists in a spiritual mirror, which is a dark reflection of our spiritual reality. Can anyone tell us why our reflection is "dark"?

<JSNGSNG> We are in the image of the Serpent.

1 Cor. 13:12, For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. (KJV)

<LivingEM> Yes, the mirror is dark because the mind is the mirror of the spirit, and all of mortal humanity sees through their carnal mind. The mind is the reflection of the spirit. Esoterically speaking, the spirit is the sun and the mind is the moon of each individual cosmos, which we all are. We are all an individual, spiritual, cosmos, and our mind is a mirror image of the spirit that forms us. It is the collective carnal mind on the subconscious plane that projects the illusion of the material world. Can anyone tell us how this material world is formed?

<JSNGSNG> The serpent through deception joined herself to the mind.

<LivingEM> The material world is formed by Leviathan's collective mind power manipulating the material atoms of the creation. But this does not mean that Leviathan's expression in the individual mortal man is responsible for the visible world.

I used to believe that Leviathan shines through the conscious mind of mortal humanity to form the visible world, and that the visible world exists because we all perceives it the way it is, but I now know that this is not true. Mortal man's pride places himself at the center of the universe, but the truth is that we exist in "outer darkness" and are not responsible for the visible world. Can anyone tell us who is at the center of the material world?

<JSNGSNG> Satan.

<LivingEM> Satan is close. The spiritual sun of this fallen creation is at the center of the material world. Who is the spiritual sun of this fallen creation?

<PEARLMERCHANT> The carnal mind?

<LivingEM> This, too, is close. The Primordial Serpent is at the innermost point of this fallen creation, and Satan is her aspect in the astral plane. This means that the present, visible formation of the primordial substance, that is, the world as we know it, is built upon the foundation of the Primordial Serpent who generates Satan, the God of this world, and Leviathan, the mind that she shines through. Satan and Leviathan are mortal man's carnal mind, but there is one higher than they: The Primordial Serpent whom they serve.

The material world is formed by Satan "thinking" through Leviathan, who gathers, or "heaps up" the material atoms of creation to form the visible world. Spiritually speaking, our world can be likened to a seashore sand castle.

The hand of the potter continually "mars," and reforms the material world, including our bodies. It is, therefore, called "illusion," which means "temporary," or "changeable." "Illusion does not mean "unreal." Satan's "imagination" calls our "temporary" world into existence from nanosecond to nanosecond, and Leviathan, her servant, forms the visible image of her thoughts.

Can anyone tell us the name of the place that Leviathan projects the image of the material world from? The image of the material world is projected from the heart center. Therefore, the mind that controls the heart center forms the image of the visible world. This is true concerning the emotional and spiritual life of the individual, and his physical surroundings, as well as the entire visible world.

It is difficult to comprehend that Satan, the god of the visible world, and Leviathan, the subconscious mind of mortal man, are responsible for the formation of the material world, and it is even more difficult to understand that, in Christ Jesus, we can be spiritually and physically safe in the midst of widespread destruction.

Ex. 8:22, And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth. (KJV)

23, And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be. (KJV)

Ex. 9:26, Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.


<LivingEM> It is possible to abide in perfect safety in the midst of massive geophysical destruction. Can anyone tell us how this can be?

<OVERCOMER> Covered by Christ Jesus.

<LivingEM> This is true, but these words would give no comfort to an unbeliever. How does Christ Jesus cover us?

<OVERCOMER> White throne judgment.

<LivingEM> The unbeliever would not understand this, Overcomer. The spirit that lives in our mind writes the script for, and controls everything that happens to us, except where Christ Jesus controls. Are you aware that many psychiatrists know this to be true? The personality, the physical man that we know ourselves to be, is the spiritual horse that the indwelling spirit rides upon.

Rev. 6:8, And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. (KJV)

<LivingEM> The horse, or personality, that "death" sits upon, has a hellish existence. Can anyone tell us the spiritual significance of the word "to sit"?

<LAMB> To marry.

<LivingEM> Yes, to marry, and more specifically?

<LAMB> To be in bed with?

<LivingEM> Yes, "to sit" is the verb that the Scripture uses to signify the spiritual marital union, which is of the mind.

The amount of free will that a personality may exercise depends upon the balance of curses and blessings in her life. Another factor is whether the personality is experiencing the reaping and sowing judgment, or the White Throne Judgment. So we see that if the personality is in submission to Christ Jesus, our protection arises from within, and not from without. The personality that seeks to protect itself with the things of this world, or by the reasoning of the carnal mind, therefore, can only come to failure.

The protection promised by the Scripture is manifested through obedience to Christ Jesus at the first sign of trouble, and endurance as we wait for our deliverance to manifest. Our initial reaction is to run, but that is the worst thing that we can do. The reasoning of our carnal mind tells us to run, and the "flight or fight reaction" of our emotions usually controls us, but we must learn to stand in the crisis, and obey nothing and no one but Christ Jesus. We must be immovable and unshakable, if we are to survive the rapidly intensifying conflicts already overflowing the earth.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that we can be protected in the midst of a massive earthquake or fire, if we do not yield to our emotions, or the counsel of our carnal mind.

Of course I am talking about believers who are engaged in a spiritual, marital union with Christ Jesus in their everyday life. The Lord, Jesus, might respond to people who are not joined to Him, and then again He might not. I honestly do not know how this works, but I do know that He will protect the wife-personality that is serving him faithfully every day, not out of fear, but out of love.

I remember the day, one of many, that I was faced with physical death. I said, "Lord, I am in your hands, but if I have anything at all to say about this, it would be, 'Lord, don't let Satan have the last say on my life.'" The next day I started to recover. And then again, on another occasion, I remember saying to the Lord, "are you really going to let me die? This time His response was to expose hidden sin in my personality. I was shocked at what he revealed. All I could say was, Lord, I didn't know, but I'm so sorry. The next day He put me in the hospital. I was there for three months, but I lived to serve Him, as I still do to this day.

I do not believe that an earthquake can kill me. I do not believe that a bullet from a drive-by shooting can kill me, and I do not believe that a disease can kill me. Neither do I believe that any deadly thing of this world can kill me, if I continue to follow after the Lord, and serve Him, to the best of my ability, with sincerity of heart. This includes the confession of every sin that the Lord reveals in me, submission to the purifying process, trying with all of my strength to be at peace through righteousness with all men, and suffering all loss to my pride, so that Christ Jesus can be revealed through me in all things, on all occasions, and in all controversies.

No man, natural disaster, or disease, can take my life. Only my Master can take my life, which I fully expect Him to do. But when Christ Jesus takes my life, His 10th will remain in me, and He shall rebuild me, upon His foundation, in His image, and I shall live for the life of the ages as His shadow.

Hos. 6:2, After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. (KJV)

<LivingEM> We shall no longer be Satan and Leviathan's shadow, but we shall be the reflection of Christ Jesus.

Is. 6:13, But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof. (KJV)

<LivingEM> Israel will survive the destruction because Christ, Jehovah's 10th, is in us. This means that when Satan and Leviathan, our carnal mind, are destroyed, our personality, which is Satan and Leviathan's shadow in this generation, will not cease to exist. But Christ Jesus in the midst of us will reform us into His reflection, which will preserve the personality and prevent it from returning to the dust.

Is. 6:10 [The serpent will] make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

11 Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate,

12 And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.

13 But YET IN IT SHALL BE A TENTH, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, WHOSE SUBSTANCE IS IN THEM [Christ Jesus], when they cast their leaves: SO THE HOLY SEED SHALL BE THE SUBSTANCE THEREOF. (KJV)

<LivingEM> All this must come to pass in the individual for Ex. 8:23 to manifest in their life.

Ex. 8:23, And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be. (KJV)

<LivingEM> Brethren, the day must come that there is a division between the true believer and the rest of the world, which includes the members of the Church who are not in submission to Christ Jesus. Can anyone tell us what the next, or the new, age is?

<LAMB> The Kingdom of God?

<JSNGSNG> Kingdom age.

<LivingEM> And what is the Kingdom Age? the spiritually uneducated would have no idea what you were talking about.

<MYPRECOUS1> Manifested sons.

<OVERCOMER> The age where the mind of Christ rules.

<LivingEM> Yes, Christ Jesus IS the New Age, but there is also a counterfeit New Age in Leviathan's timeline.

Ecc 3:11, He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. (KJV)

<LivingEM> The Hebrew word translated "world," means "age," and the New Age of Christ Jesus is in the heart center. We enter into the New Age of Christ Jesus when He occupies our heart center.

Lk 19:13, And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. (KJV)

<LivingEM> The glorified Jesus Christ who is above, joins with Christ Jesus in the individual when He occupies their heart center. This marriage that catches the personality up to a place of safety, is the salvation of the soul [personality].

Rev. 14:4, These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. (KJV)

<LivingEM> These virgins are the believers who refuse to engage in spiritual adultery with Satan and Leviathan, but are fully committed and sold out to Christ Jesus, who covers them. Who covers the other Christians?

<LAMB> Holy Spirit.

<LivingEM> I didn't make my question clear. Who will cover the other Christians in the New Age of Christ Jesus?

<LAMB> Leviathan.

<OVERCOMER> The sons.

<LAMB> Or us?

<JSNGSNG> Manifested sons

<LivingEM> Yes, every non-virgin [everyone who is still subject to their carnal mind], who professes faith in Jesus Christ, will be covered by the virgins, the sons of God. Can anyone tell us how we cover a mortal man's sin? How do the virgins cover sin?

<OVERCOMER> By overcoming our own sin first, and then discerning the sin of the other.

<LivingEM> And after we discern sin in them, then what?

<OVERCOMER> We expose it to them as the Lord leads.

<JSNGSNG> Bringing the correction.

<LivingEM> Yes, and what does this accomplish?

<OVERCOMER> Gives them the opportunity to repent.

<JSNGSNG> Repentance.

<OVERCOMER> It shines the light unto them, the truth, and if they choose the truth, they receive the mind of Christ in that area.

<LivingEM> Yes, it gives the spiritual offender the choice between repenting or staying in their sin. And what good does this choice do us? It affords the believer the opportunity to be corrected by the White Throne Judgment, and avoid the sowing and reaping judgment which is executed by Satan.

The sowing and reaping judgment is administered through painful experiences, but the White Throne Judgment is verbal correction which imparts the understanding that produces change.

We started this message with a discussion about the spiritual meaning of the recent earthquake in Turkey, and catastrophic geophysical events, in general.

This world began with the Primordial Serpent's thought of what a world should be. Her thought was then mirrored in Satan and Leviathan, the carnal mind of mortal humanity.

As I said at the beginning of this message, the material world is an illusion because it is a temporary formation of the spiritual atoms of creation. "Illusion" does not mean false. It means "temporary." So when the sons of God attack Satan and Leviathan, the illusion, the temporary formation of the spiritual clay, begins to shake. It is hard to believe, but just a few sons challenging Satan and Leviathan by preaching the Doctrine of Christ from the mental plane in Christ Jesus, and exposing sin in a few personalities where Christ Jesus is resident, can be responsible for the recent natural disasters in the world.

When Christ Jesus in a son attacks Satan and Leviathan within himself, and in others, the ability of the collective Leviathan to reflect the Primordial Serpent's "creative" thought, begins to waver. I emphasize "creative," because Leviathan can only form the spiritual clay which was created by Jehovah.

We see this principle in Daniel, Chapter 8, where a goat representing Leviathan enters into the field where a ram, representing Adam, is reigning. The Hebrew text reveals that the goat had her own image of the world in her mind, and destroyed the image that the ram had in his mind.

The image in the mind of the goat is shaking, and the visible material world, which is a reflection of the image in Leviathan's mind, is rocking and reeling, because the sons of God are executing judgment upon the carnal mind from the mental plane of Christ Jesus.

Our physical bodies are part of this illusory material world and, therefore, can be broken and destroyed along with the geophysical earth, as Leviathan loses her ability to sustain the image of the Primordial Serpent's thought in her mind. Does this make Jehovah and the Lord Jesus Christ unrighteous? Nobody has an answer?



<LivingEM> Our material world is a spiritual penal colony, where Satan, the warden, tortures its inmates, with only some few restrictions. Jehovah and the Lord Jesus Christ, therefore, are righteously destroying this corrupt image.

Concentration camps are a natural type of the spiritual reality of the world that we live in, and occupied France during World War II is a natural example of the spiritual reality. I am sure that there were people in occupied France who led a relatively normal life. They worked during the day, they ate, they slept, they married, and they made love. But all of this went on under the umbrella of a tyrannical, despotic government which oppressed and tortured some people, more than others.

The natural catastrophes taking place in our world today can be likened to Victory In Europe (VE) Day, when the allies liberated France by invading her shores. There was no way to avoid some people getting hurt.

The image of this material world is rocking and reeling, and the material people who are part of this material world are in is much danger as the trees and the houses that they live in, EXCEPT for the spiritual virgins who follow Christ Jesus wherever he goes, and some blessed people who, although spiritually ignorant, are covered by the virgins who follow Christ Jesus.

I do not know how the new image will manifest. I do not even know what it will look like, but my guess is that there will be no material replacement.

You may recall the teaching that the material world is an extra orbit on the atom of creation. It should never have been built, because mankind is supposed to exist in a spiritual body, in a spiritual world. You may also recall the teaching that this material world is lying on top of Christ Jesus' spiritual world like an eyelid covering an eye. The real, spiritual world, is within this material world, like an egg is within its shell.

The only thing that I can tell you today, is that the virgins who are willing to have their carnal mind and their body of sin [Astral and etheric bodies] destroyed, will see the Kingdom of Heaven, which, as you all know, appears when the fiery serpent is bound underneath Christ Jesus and secured there by the glorified Jesus Christ, who is above.

We will remain in these material bodies for as long as it is necessary to convert the rest of the people who are still possessed by Satan and Leviathan, but we will not be subject to the continuing destruction rumbling through the material world. We will look like the rest of humanity, but our physical bodies will be formed by Christ Jesus, not by Satan and Leviathan.

Now, some of you may recall me saying that Jehovah did not form these physical bodies, and this is true. But now that humanity is already fallen, Christ Jesus will temporarily sustain our physical bodies until the transition into spiritual bodies is complete.

Remember that our physical bodies are formed by a superior mind "gathering up" or "subduing" the atoms of creation and "arranging them" in a pattern that produces what we know to be a "man." And this is the very definition of Strong's # 1969 [dabar (daw-bar')], the Hebrew word translated "to speak," "a primitive root; perhaps properly, to arrange; but used figuratively (of words), to speak; rarely (in a destructive sense) to subdue."

The true speech is the power to form, or control, the circumstances of one's own life. "Control" is the definition of witchcraft, but when the Spirit of Christ controls, it is not sin, because His motives are righteous.

A physical change must take place, because the Scripture says that the division between the people of God and the rest of humanity is the sign that will convince the unbeliever of Jehovah's great power, which is manifested to the world in this hour through the Lord Jesus Christ. It must happen! And it will happen! And it is actually happening right now.

You may recall my teaching on the concept of "threshold."A moving object is invisible until it crosses over an invisible line called a "threshold," at which point it becomes visible. The moving object may have been edging toward the threshold for years, but it could not be seen until it crossed over into the visible plane.

Christ Jesus within the people who are sold out to him, and doing the best they can to follow him everywhere, is edging towards the threshold of our material world. He is in the world now, but we are waiting for His appearing, sometimes called His "public appearance."

The spiritual planes of consciousness are within the material plane. Christ Jesus has been working his way into this material world for 2000 years, and is about to break through into our visible world. The warfare that precipitates His appearing is causing the material world to collapse, but Christ Jesus' is not punishing us with earthquakes and floods.

I don't have any more information at this time, except to encourage you all to continue on with Christ Jesus to the best of your ability, and to confess your inabilities, so that He might strengthen you where you are weak; and to love one another, and to forgive one another quickly, so that Satan and Leviathan have no legal ground to cover Christ Jesus within you.

I pray that everyone present and everyone who reads the transcript of this meeting should overcome his own negative principles, enter into the life of Christ Jesus, and be one of the saviors who help to bring the rest of humanity out of bondage into His true life.

Are there any questions or comments before we leave? May we all enter in quickly. God bless you. I love you all. Good night.
