The Man in the White Horse

“Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked, and behold, a (1) white horse. (2) He who sat on it had a (3) bow; (4) and a crown was given to him, (5) and he went out conquering and to conquer.” Revelation 6:1-2 NKJV

(1) White Horse– White Idiomatically means, clean and or pure intention, while horse indicates power.

(2) He who sat on the White Horse– refers to any man having pure intention and power- This man could refer to Peter because he was one who had the purest, untainted intention and He has the power of God. He performed miracles:

“so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. Also, a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.”Acts 5:15-16 NKJV

(3) Bow– Refers to revelation, notice that arrow was not mentioned because arrow idiomatically means the content of those revelations. It uses the word bow so that, when the content of those revelations is taught, it goes to distant places in the same manner that when an arrow is thrown with a bow, it goes to distant places.

“Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 16:17 NKJV

(4) And a crown was given to him– this refers to the authority vested in him by Jesus Christ Himself.

“I tell you that you are Peter. And I’ll build my church on this rock. The gates of the underworld won’t be able to stand against it.”Matthew 16:18 CEB

(5) And, he went out conquering and to conquer– in his time, the believer grows by multitudes, this was due to the bow or the revelation that he held which he taught. To date, those words are going places, conquering even now.

“They praised God and demonstrated God’s goodness to everyone. The Lord added daily to the community those who were being saved.” Acts of the Apostles 2:47 CEB

Atheist and Theist, Who is Wiser?

Believing in God or not believing in God is a personal choice. Whatever your choice, it becomes your personal truth, it is not an absolute truth because neither one can prove empirically that God exists or God does not exist hence, it becomes a personal choice.

But, there is one empirical truth that is common to all and that is death. Everyone dies at some point in time, what happens next though is only a notion of what might happen.

Atheist believe that nothing happens.

Theists believe that there is life after death and this is because of God.

If you are an atheist, your chance of being correct is half the chance as the theist.

What if the atheist is right and the theist is wrong? Well, in death, what happens to atheist also happens to theist and so, they are equal.

What if the atheist is wrong and theist is right? Well, in death, atheist as expected nothing happens but dead, theist though under the right belief get to live eternally.

So, in both scenario, who actually lose?

I guess you know the answer.

If you do choose to be theist, in this notion, it gets more complicated as theists have a different belief of who and or what is God.

Nonetheless, under the notion that there is God. One branch of theist belief is also half the chance as correct as of the other branch of belief. Again, this comes down to a personal choice what to believe.

Some choose to believe what others have told them to believe.

Some choose to believe according to what makes sense to them.

Nonetheless, in either case, the chance of them being correct is half the chance as of the others.

So, choose wisely and better choose a belief that is truly yours not from someone else because, at some point in time during judgment, you cannot pass the blame to others saying that you were taught wrong and so it was not your fault. You were given a choice and whatever your choice, you alone are responsible and liable to it, you cannot play the blame game with God.

To know who and or what is God? watch!

The Spirit Of Elija

Why does some preacher pick a verse and point it to themselves implying that the verse is referring to them?

Example: The verse below:

“Look, I am sending Elijah the prophet to you, before the great and terrifying day of the LORD arrives. Turn the hearts of the parents to the children and the hearts of the children to their parents. Otherwise, I will come and strike the land with a curse.” Malachi 4:5-6 CEB

One preacher who claimed that the verse is pointing to him was Jim Jones who was responsible for mass suicide.

In the Philippines, the verse also is being used to point it to some preachers, few of them are:

1.) Felix Y Manalo

2.) Eli Soriano

The idea of this is to solidify the supposed authority given to them so that, since the verse is pointing to them, what they preach is impossible to be wrong.

The problem is, these men who claim that the verse is pointing to them are still human, they are corruptible. When people already believe that the verse really is pointing to them, they will find their words to be always true because to their believers, it’s impossible for them to make mistake since they are the one being referred in the verse hence, the Jim Jones case whereby the followers really follow him to a remote place and commit mass suicide there.

The bible warned us to not trust men who perish or subject to death.

“Stop trusting in mere humans, who have but a breath in their nostrils. Why hold them in esteem?”Isaiah 2:22 NIV

Set your trust to Jesus only because to date, He lives.

“And again: “I will put My trust in Him.” And again: “Here am I and the children whom God has given Me.”Hebrews 2:13 NKJV

Which Word do you Prioritised?

To my understanding, you take first the word of Jesus Christ to be the reference or centrepiece to which your interpretation of other verses will pivot, this is because, the Son is the word of God and He alone knows the Father to the fullest.

Example: When Jesus said:

“I have REVEALED YOUR NAME to the people you gave me from this world. They were yours and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.”John 17:6 CEB

The answers of the questions below may vary depending on whose word you prioritise.

  1. What is the name that the Christ revealed?
  2. Why must the Christ still reveal the name of the Father when Moses already revealed it way back in the old beside, it’s already a common knowledge for the Jews to know the name of God yet here, the Christ revealed the Father’s name?
  3. Is it possible that what Moses had received was not really the preferred name of God?
    If you prioritised Moses word, you’ll probably make the “name” in the verse not really a name but a power and or authority so that, Jesus did not really revealed the Father’s name since Moses already revealed it way back in Exodus.
    But, if you prioritised Jesus Christ word or make His word the center piece of your interpretation, you would wonder what was that name which Moses had received, it must be that Moses did not really receives the most preferred name of God rather, God reserved a name for the Son to make it known and that name, is the name given to the Son. The name given showcase who God is through the Son, in this name, the Father is glorified. (John 14:13)

What is the​ difference between a temple and a church?

The difference between the two is like the difference between what is a house and a home.

A house implied that although you live in it, you are not happy and or not united with the one in it, in short, you live in it but inside, it’s in turmoil.

A home implies that yes, you live in it and you are happy, united with others who also live in it. In short, the place is not in turmoil.

It is the same as on temple (house) and church (home).

All of us is a temple of the Holy Spirit but not all are a church of the Holy Spirit because Holy Spirit is God and God is life, whether you are good or bad so long as you have life, God is in you, you just don’t know or acknowledge it yet.

“Or don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you? Don’t you know that you have the Holy Spirit from God, and you don’t belong to yourselves? 1 Corinthians 6:19 CEB

But, the moment you knew and follow the will of the life that is in you since conception, you will become a church of God. This means you and the life in you are now in unity. You are now, a HOME – church.

Click here to know the will of THE LIFE

Yes, you too are a church. The Body of Christ is THE CHURCH and every member of it is also called a church.

It’s like a BIG circle, in it are many small circles, nonetheless, whether its a BIG circle or small circles inside the big circle, all are called a circle.

“Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” John 14:23 NKJV

See here on what the verse above means.

“And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:18 NKJV

In the above verse, the body of Christ literally was called the church. His body is a church both literally and figuratively. His body is just one yet it’s called a church and, it is said that we should be like Christ

“No, we will speak the truth with love. We will grow to be like Christ in every way. He is the head,”Ephesians 4:15 ERV

To be like Christ is to be become a church within THE CHURCH, that means, we become an integral part of THE CHURCH or His Body.

Does​ Christ have a human or Adamic spirit?

The Christ, in Him or what gives Him breath or life is not of the human spirit but the HOLY SPIRIT.

God is Spirit;

“God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”John‬ ‭4:24‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

He Fills Heaven and Earth;

“Can anyone hide himself in secret places, So I shall not see him?” says the LORD; “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the LORD.”‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭23:24‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

God is Holy

“but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”‭‭I Peter‬ ‭1:15-16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Therefore, God is a vast, unquantifiable Holy Spirit who can send out part of Himself to anybody and to anywhere with His nature as Spirit intact or not even reduced. It’s like a vast self-conscious ocean who can send waves to wherever the ocean chooses.

Having said the above, the Holy Spirit that conceived the Christ was His Father since Holy Spirit is simply a nature of the Father. Evidently, He is called the Son of God not Son of the Holy Spirit. He called God His Father not He called the Holy Spirit His Father simply because, God and Holy Spirit is one and the same.

  • God Or, Father is the title name
  • Holy is the description
  • Spirit is the nature

So, now we have established that God Father is the Holy Spirit. The next to established is whether the Father who is Holy Spirit by nature dwells in the Christ.

“Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.”John‬ ‭14:11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

The verse above should be interpreted literally because it’s plausible for a Spirit to dwell in a living soul.

The Christ himself confesses that the Father who is Holy Spirit is in Him. Now, it is said that Spirit is the one that gives life, without spirit the body is dead

“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” ‭‭James‬ ‭2:26‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Since Father is in the Christ and Father is Spirit and without Spirit the body is dead. It follows that the Father is the one giving life to the Christ, not Adamic spirit or human spirit. Why would He still need a human spirit within Him so as to have breath when the Father who is the source of all breath is already in Him? In fact in verse below, His breath is the Holy Spirit;

“And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” ‭‭John‬ ‭20:22‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Others may reason out that the Holy Spirit only dwells after the resurrection hence, the above since happened after the resurrection, He was able to breathe the Holy Spirit. But, how about the Jhon 14:11, the Father who is a Spirit, was already in Him even before death, does it mean that the Father in Him is not Holy? I don’t think so.

Some say, the dwelling only started when He was baptized in the Jordan river but, if this is the case, it would follow that Jhon the baptized is greater than Christ because as the verse below;

“For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb.”Luke‬ ‭1:15‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Since Jhon is already filled with the Holy Spirit even in the womb. And, it said that Christ is greater than Jhon the Baptist

“Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

‬‬What could be higher or greater than the filling of Holy Spirit even in the womb except within the Christ or what causes the breath of Christ in the womb is the Holy Spirit Himself, not the human spirit? But, He does have a human body, it can still feel pain the same as how human would feel at least before the resurrection,

Remember that Jesus is without a human father, His Father is Holy Spirit who is life in itself.

Now, how about that the other verses with small “s” implying that He has a human spirit?

Well, not all spirit in the bible means literal. Spirit in a literal sense is something that you can’t see. You don’t know how strong, the attitude, character, morale except that you see it from its visible manifestation which is the person itself.

Having said the above, when someone says “strong in spirit” as below, it is an idiomatic term to mean, the person has a strong personality, will or some sort.

“So the child grew and became strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his manifestation to Israel.”Luke‬ ‭1:80‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Troubled in spirit is also an idiomatic term to mean, the person is worried or thinking about something. If it means a literal spirit, you would not even know whether it’s troubled or not because it’s invisible.

“When Jesus had said these things, He was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray Me.”John‬ ‭13:21‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Yielded up His spirit or give up His spirit is also an idiomatic term to simply means, he losses the will to live or, yielded up his breath, or the body surrendered its life.

I commit My spirit is also an idiomatic term to simply means, He is entrusting His life to the Father as a spirit also means life.

“And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.”Matthew‬ ‭27:50‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit.’ Having said this, He breathed His last.”Luke‬ ‭23:46‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“Crying out in a loud voice, Jesus said, “Father, into your hands I entrust my life.” After he said this, he breathed for the last time.”Luke‬ ‭23:46‬ ‭CEB‬‬

Why is it necessary for a human spirit not to passed through the Christ? The answer is because the original sin which came from Adam and Eve is passed on spiritually. It follows a father line model. Given to Adam, corrupted by Adam and from that point, it is being passed on through biological father and so forth. No human can be born without a biological human father may it either be an accident, purposely or artificial. The Christ is the special case because He was born without a human father, therefore, the Adamic spirit that carries the original sin was not passed to Him. Otherwise, He would have acquired the original sin and He will become not a blameless lamb. The bible is very clear that He never sinned. Click Inherited and committed Sin to read further. And, those who are born of God cannot sin.

“And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.” ‭‭I John‬ ‭3:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.”I John‬ ‭3:9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

The Christ is the only one who was LITERALLY born of God, not of the human father. Therefore, He cannot sin.

Body, Soul and Spirit

This is based on the verses below;

Ecclesiastes 12:7 and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

The Spirit will always return to God with or without you.

If you pass, it will return with you. If you fail, it will return without you.

“And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment,” ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭9:27‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches. Whoever is victorious will not be harmed by the second death.” Revelation‬ ‭2:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Also, the verse is clear that soul and spirit can be cut separating them.

“For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.”Hebrews 4:12 NLT

While the new body is based on the verse below:

“While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life.” 2 Corinthians 5:4 NLT

We are actually like a computer:

  1. There is the hardware (Monitor/keyboard/mouse) = body
  2. There is the operating system (Windows/Mac) = Soul. When we are born, the soul in us is basically empty then, it accumulates consciousness together with the body up to the point of death. After that, it becomes the final version of us but not in the fleshly body anymore.
  3. And, there is the power (current) = spirit.

The hardware or body and Operating system are useless without the power (current).

Someday, the current hardware or body will corrode but the operating system or the soul can still live if placed in a new body but only if the power or, the spirit is still connected.

“While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life.” 2 Corinthians 5:4 NLT

This spirit is the breath of God given to us. (Gen. 2:7)

The will of the spirit is not ours per se but of God, though we cannot impose our own will to the spirit that gives us life, it also does not intervene with our choices so that, whatever we choose is due to us not due to the spirit who gives us life.

For this reason, when the bible commanded:

“Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭22:37‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Spirit is not included because there is no need, for after all, the spirit is the God within you, not in exact quality as in the Son but a lesser quality and a part of God that gives you life from the moment you were conceive to date.
