Mysteries Of The Kingdom

Archangels & Angels, Satan & Demons

Overcoming preconceived notions, developed over thousands of years and molded by human nature, is a very difficult task indeed; Especially when practically everyone you know believes they are true and factual as presented. The question is, "What do you do, when you discover that all is not as it appears to be on the surface" and "What do you do, when your Spiritual eyes and ears have been opened to the hidden truth, and practically no one will listen to you?" Well, don't get too upset, because apparently YHVH doesn't want just anyone to know the truth, and apparently not just anyone is capable of accepting the truth either.

Deuteronomy 29:2-4
2 And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that YHVH did before your (physical) eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land; 3 The great temptations which thine (physical) eyes have seen, the (physical) signs, and those great (physical) miracles: 4 Yet YHVH hath not given you a (Spiritual or Righteous) heart to perceive, and (Spiritual or Righteous) eyes to see, and (Spiritual or Righteous) ears to hear, unto this day.

Ezekiel 12:2
Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house (people),

which have (physical) eyes to see, and (Spiritually) see not; they have (physical) ears to hear, and (Spiritually) hear not: for they are a rebellious house.

Matthew 13:9-16
9 Who has ears to hear, let him hear. 10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 12 For whosoever has (ears to hear), to him shall (understanding & Truth) be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever has not (ears to hear), from him shall be taken away even that (which) he has (possesses). 13 Therefore speak I to them in parables (Allegories): because they in seeing (the physical) see not (the Spiritual); and hearing (the physical) they hear not (the Spiritual), neither do they understand (No Spiritual heart to perceive). 14 And in them (The Worldly) is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 For this people’s (worldly) heart has grown large (waxed gross), and their (Spiritual or Righteous) ears are dull of hearing (do not listen), and their (Spiritual or Righteous) eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see (Understand Truth) with their (Spiritual or Righteous) eyes, and hear with their (Spiritual or Righteous) ears, and should understand with their (Spiritual or Righteous) heart, and should be (Spiritually) converted, and I should (Spiritually) heal them. 16 But blessed are your (Spiritual or Righteous) eyes, for they see (The Mysteries Of The Kingdom): and your (Spiritual or Righteous) ears, for they hear (The Mysteries Of The Kingdom).

Yes, "The Mysteries of The Kingdom" are represented as allegories, metaphors, and parables (anthropomorphisms). These anthropomorphisms serve the purpose of separating "The Worldly" (Physically Oriented) people (Tares) from YHVH's future children (The Spiritually Oriented People or Wheat); "Spiritually" refers to "Righteousness Seekers" for only they have "The Heart (mental attitude) to Perceive." I need to make it quite clear that what you are about to discover is absolutely not the result of "Spiritualism".

SPIRITUALISM: is a religious movement that became popular and prominent in English-speaking countries in the 1840s – 1920s. This is not to say that necromancy hasn't existed for millenniums. The movement's most distinguishing feature is the false belief that the spirits of the dead can actually be contacted by mediums. These spirits or ghosts are believed to lie on a higher spiritual plane than humans, and are therefore capable of providing guidance in both worldly and spiritual matters. Modern Spiritualism first appeared in the 1840s in the BurnedOver District of upstate New York where earlier religious movements such as Millerism (Seventh Day Adventists) and Mormonism (Latter Day Saints) had emerged during the Second Great Awakening. It was an environment in which many people felt that direct communication with their god or angelic beings was possible, and in which many people felt uncomfortable with the Calvinist notions that their god would behave harshly; for example, that their god would condemn unbaptized infants to an eternity in Hell. There is a huge difference between a "Righteous Seeking Spirit" (mindset, mentality, personality), and a spiritualistic world focused on the concept of physically communicating with spirits of the dead, ghosts, gods, demigods, demons, and angels. This alone should completely void the concept of Mary (Miryam) getting pregnant by being with a ghost.

Luke 1:35
And the angel (Greek #32, aggelos, meaning "Messenger") answered and said unto her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee (spiritually or mentally), and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore, also, that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall (someday) be called the "Son of YHVH".

Note: "Overshadowed" means "Influenced By" or a
"Preternatural Influence". In any case it is a psychological influence. So what does "Preternatural" mean? It means "Greater Than Normal" which indicates a Righteousness Seeking Nature (which is greater than "Human Nature"), and it does not indicate a supernatural phenomenon. Of course christopagan (hellenized) translators (who do not understand YHVH's Ruach Qodesh or Holy Spirit) will (with their worldly minds) automatically assume the latter (supernatural). A "Preternatural Influence" may come from a physical source (a pastor, minister, teacher, prophet) or be a psychological (Preternatural) facet of YHVH's Spiritual influence (such as Spiritual Discernment, Gifts of The Spirit, etc. .). Interestingly, this particular angel is, also, the Archangel Gabriel; and as such, Gabriel was a "Preternatural Influence" to the psychological status of Mary (Miryam). Just for the record, Mary's (Miryam's) mental status became one of rejoicing (excitement); incidently, this psychological influence is used in TSN's argument against "The Virgin Birth" as being a supernatural event (More later).

I can assure you (if you don't already know) that there is absolutely nothing in my messages advocating spiritualism. As a matter of fact, Anthropomorphic teachings are just the opposite of Spiritualism, as there is no direct psychic or physical contact with the dead or invisible

spirits through the five physical senses (hearing, seeing, tasting, touching, smelling) at all. Allegories and parables are the "Preternatural" discernments of a "Righteousness Seeking Mentality", and not direct physical communications with the (So Called) spirits of the dead or invisible beings.

Archangels & Angels
The Truth is Simple: The entire Bible (Tanakh too) is written in many various types of parables, metaphors, and allegories. In addition to having the power to separate the Tares from the Wheat, we should, also, know that if it weren't for allegories, metaphors, and Parables, The Bible, as we know it, could never have been written by the ancients or studied in a lifetime, because The Bible would be over a million pages long. The first seven symbolic days of creation alone would have taken more than a million pages to describe in detail. Ever hear the old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words? Well parables, metaphors, and allegories in Scripture are "Word Pictures" that describe a "Physical to Spiritual" parallel relationship that would be impossible to efficiently describe any other way; Archangels and Angels are no exception to the rule. However, there are both physical angels (ministers, pastors, prophets, teachers, etc .) and Spiritual (psychological) Angels, which minister, pastors, prophets, and teachers of "The Word" have the power to impart.

Note: Seriously, if you haven't already done so, it is highly
recommended that you take a detour and study "Understanding Parallels and Parables," and then return by closing the new window.

Additionally: If any of you seekers out there have not yet
read and learned what YHVH's Holy Spirit truly is, then it is, also, imperative that you do so prior to reading the next paragraph. Read: "The Holy Spirit Revealed" and then return

by closing the new window.

Now that you are fully aware of what a "True Spirit" is, you may apply that information to all spirits (obviously NOT all spirits are Holy or righteousness seeking). However, make no mistake, all Spiritual Angels (whether righteous or not) are psychological influences (mental gifts, mental images, attitudes, mentalities, mindsets, personalities) that are capable of directly controlling human or animal thoughts from within the brain without the need of (physical) "Ears to Hear" or (physical) "Eyes to See", because the five senses are bypassed; and therefore Spiritual Angels have most often been associated by common man with "Dreams, Visions, and unexplained Supernatural Appearances". The following information on Archangels is readily available in most any good concordance, and I believe that it is true. So, what better way to learn about Archangels than to start with their allegorical identities (personalities); Michael, Gabriel, and for some of you, Raphael.

According to Strong's Concordance
Hebrew (none) Greek #743 a chief angel from Greek #757 to rule over angels

So here we have an metaphorical "Spirit Nature" or "Spiritual Mentality" with the power to "Rule" over (influence) angels. So what are angels?

Hebrew #4397 (mal'awk) A messenger, Angel, Prophet, Priest, Minister or teacher of YHVH

Hebrew #4398 (mal'ak) Angel; Greek # 32 (Aggelos), A messenger, angel, minister of or pastor of YHVH.

Note: An angel may be either a real physical messenger with
a Spiritual message or a psychological mindset with a Spiritual message.

Anthropomorphically Speaking: Those of us with spiritual "Ears to Hear" and "Eyes to See" should immediately be able to discern, that "Righteous Angels" (physical or psychological) are the parallel equivalent of "Righteous Thoughts" (Righteous Messages from YHVH's Holy Spirit). This would automatically make "Archangels" a facet of YHVH's Righteousness Seeking Nature. Why? Because it is a person's nature or Spirit (good or evil) that determines (rules over) a person's thoughts (good or evil).

Hebrew #4317 "Who is like YHVH" (Miykael) Greek #3413 means Michael (The Archangel), but the name is, also, alluded to by its metaphorical meaning. Hebrew #4317, which literally means "One who is like YHVH".

Note: This "One who is like YHVH" is a direct reference to the Spiritual Image of YHVH, that the
Archangel "Michael" possesses; and that Spiritual Image is none other than "The Righteousness Seeking (Holy) Spirit or mind of YHVH". This means that Michael is, also, a "Preternatural Influence" that is the equivalent to a facet of the Righteousness Seeking Nature of YHVH.

I don't know about you, but at this point I can easily see that it doesn't take a genius to figure out that Michael (The Archangel) is an anthropomorphism for YHVH's Mindset (Righteousness Seeking Nature) that psychologically Calls a person to be filled with The Holy Spirit (Righteousness Seeking Nature) of YHVH. Apparently the archangel "Michael" represents "The Will of YHVH". A True Child of YHVH might be inclined to say, "Now that we have heeded our calling by the Archangel Michael (Righteous Will of YHVH), and have psychologically received YHVH's Righteousness Seeking (Holy Nature) Spirit", We are now served by YHVH's angels that deliver unto us righteous thoughts (messages, mental images, dreams, visions, and understanding through Righteous Discernment).

In Contrast: It follows that Satan must be an metaphor for
"Unrighteous Nature" or "Human Nature" or "Worldly Nature" or the "Self-will" of Man; while demon messengers are unrighteous thoughts generated by said "Self-centeredness". Now let us examine other facets of YHVH's Holy Spirit (Righteousness Seeking Nature).

Greek #1043 meaning Gabriel. Greek #1403 meaning Friendly, Cheerful, "Glad Tidings". Here again we have a facet of the Spiritual Nature of YHVH, that behaves as a Preternatural influence. This mind altering influence is one of rejoicing. Such as when Gabriel brings messages of "Glad Tidings". The name "Gabriel" may, also, be translated as a "Man of YHVH".

Remember: A preternatural influence is psychological
influence attributed to a person's nature (Spirit) that has the power to rule over your personal thoughts or your mental state.

Luke 1:18-19
18 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years. 19 And the angel (Spiritual Messenger) answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stands in the presence of YHVH; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these (messages of) glad tidings.

Luke 1:26-30
26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from YHVH unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, 27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the House of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary (Miryam). 28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, "Hail, thou that art highly favored, YHVH is with thee (in her Nature): blessed art thou among women." 29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind (her mental status) what manner of salutation this should be. 30 And the (Arch-) angel (Gabriel) said unto her, "Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor (Grace) with YHVH."

Additionally, I recall that there is at least one reference in "The Book of Enoch" to a possible Archangel named Raphael.

Raphael: (meaning "YHVH has healed"). Assuming this is true, then
(symbolically) Raphael would be a "Preternatural Healing

Influence". Now, I am sure this healing is mainly Spiritual (psychological), and I would be surprised if it included physical healing, except in cases where the physical illness was due to an unrighteous mentality. Even so, Messiah has greater Spiritual powers (gifts) than the symbolic Archangels (Michael, Gabriel or Raphael). We, also, have a "Mighty Angel" (Greek #2478, Ischuros, meaning

Mighty, loud, strong and valiant). This "Mighty Angel" or "Mighty Messenger" of Revelation chapter ten is none other than Messiah. This, also, perfectly fits the definition of a righteousness seeking Preternatural Influence. Why? Because Messiah's entire life was his Righteous ministry (influence). Read: "The Sacrifice of Messiah".

Revelations 10:1-11
¶ And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: 2 And he had in his hand a little book open (the symbolic "Book of Life" or "The Book of The Remembered"): and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, 3 And cried out with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices (sounded). 4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. 5 And the (Mighty) angel, which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth, lifted up his hand to heaven, 6 And swore by him (YHVH) that lives forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: 7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel (Mighty Messenger OR Messiah), when he shall begin to sound (The Last Shofar OR Last Trumpet), the mystery of YHVH should be finished, as HE hath declared to HIS servants the prophets (according to prophecy). 8 And the (Loud) voice which I heard from heaven spoke unto me again (as a vision), and said, Go and take the little book (of Life), which is open in the hand of the (Mighty) angel (or Messiah) which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. 9 And I went unto the (Mighty) angel (or Messiah), and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he (Messiah) said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. 10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s (Messiah's) hand, and

ate it up (consumed its knowledge); and it was in my mouth sweet as honey (my name was listed there): and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter (most of my family and friends were not listed). 11 And he (Messiah) said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

Revelation 11:15
And the seventh angel (Messiah) sounded (The Last Trumpet OR Last Shofar); and there were great voices in the clouds, saying, "The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our FATHER YHVH, and of his Messiah; and HE (YHVH) shall reign forever and ever."

Do you have Spiritual "Ears

To Hear" and "Eyes To See?"
