“If you keep my commandments ye shall abide in love” – St. John 15.10 … “I have chosen you … ye should go and bring forth fruit” – 15:16. Keeping the commandments meant bringing forth fruit – “make” – to build, build up, to hew, to dig, to form, to constitute, to fashion, to frame, to give, to cause to stand, to set up, to take pains, to labour, to ponder, to cause to rise, to prepare thoroughly, to do, to cast or put together, to place together, to hand forth, to turn over, to change.
St. John’s ten commandments mean to cut or prepare, to make an incision, to make things, to interpret, to mix, to compound. To make peace, to entreat grace, to finish, to perfect, to make whole, to make fully ready beforehand, to smite, to spring up, to hold down, to engrave, to vow.
The Church has not made anything except deception, woes and abominations, bondage to their creeds, doctrines for social acceptance. They have created time wastage. There can be no resurrection in such circumstances. They have held the world on puppet strings.
The ten commandments are hidden in Exodus. St. John knew of these ten commandments but the hierarchical forces of darkness produced ten laws in opposition to the ten commands to do. St. John never thought the commandments were just sinful selective laws.
St. John understood that John of Patmos had made type on type, precept upon precept, from alpha to omega. He knew that the synoptic gospels were written as support for Revelation just as the books of Kings and Chronicles set in stone, duplicate witnesses, of the king’s reigns in Ceremonial time, a time of making for the Ancient scribes masterpiece. He knew the Synoptics would be distorted, literalised and turned into a golden icon for pew worship. St. John wanted to right the boat and set out to remake based on the Ancient scribes ten Commandments for Atonement:
The Ten Commandments used their objective Temple to describe the working of the soul temple, so there would be no Temple in the new Jerusalem:
I — “make an ark of shittim wood” (Exod. 25:10–22)
II — “make a mercy seat of pure gold” (Exod. 25:17–22)
III — “make a table of shittim wood” (Exod. 25:23–30)
IV — “make a candlestick of pure gold” (Exod. 25:31–40)
V — “make ten curtains of fine twined linen for walls” (Exod. 26:1–6) “and curtains of goat’s hair for covering” (Exod. 26:7–13)
VI — “And thou shall make a covering for the tent of ram’s skins dyed red and a covering above of badgers’ skins” (Exod. 26:1)
VII — “make boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood standing up” (Exod. 26:15) “and make bars of shittim wood” (Exod. 26:26)
VIII — “make a vail.… Hang up the vail under the taches.… Bring in thither within the vail the ark of the testimony: and the vail shall divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy.… And thou shalt set the table without the vail, and the candlestick” (Exod. 26:31–37)
IX — “make an altar of shittim wood” (Exod. 27:1–8). In archetype the court and its trimmings are “without the temple, leave out, measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles” (Rev. 11:2)
X — make an atonement” (Exod. 30:6–8, 10)
To borne, brought forth, set, made permeates all daily:
• “Art thou the first … or wast thou made” (Job 15:7)
•“son of man which shall be made as grass” (Isa. 51:12)
• “beaten work shall the candlestick be made” (Exod. 25:31)
• “oblation shall be made of fine flour with oil” (Lev. 2:7)
• “bring the meat offering that is made of” (Lev. 2:8)
• “spread … any work that is made of skin” (Lev. 13:51)
•“their houses shall be made a dunghill” (Dan. 3:29)
•“command that these stones be made bread” (Matt. 4:3)
•“The Sabbath was made for man” (Mark 2:27)
•“was not anything made that was made” (John 1:3)
•“line of things made ready to our hand” (2 Cor. 10:16)
Let’s never stand still until we can sit having corrected wrong interpretations.
