The Jewish word teivah means ark, but it also can translate as word. To the Jew the word is the Torah, to the 8th day child the word is Yeshua, who is the living law
, the living Torah. He is the perfect knowledge of God. Everything He does is therefore perfectly calculated
and in complete harmony with the rest of creation. In fact, it is through Him God created all things and declared it "very good". The 8th day child
is also born through the Word. Male and female are recreated, new creatures through wisdom and understanding and are therefore once again in the image of God, His children. These choose to access the mind of Christ
rather than seeking the world's knowledge on how to live their lives and build their surroundings. Through them a new society, a new earth will come about
as they are guided by God's Wisdom. His knowledge brings to light His plan for restoration
and reveals to them their part in manifesting this plan to earth. These have insight, understanding, they have the mind of Christ
I Corinthians 2:16
16 For "who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ.
27 So God created man in His own image (mankind); in the image of God He created him (humanity); male and female He created them.
Psalm 82:6-7 tells us:
6 I said, "You are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High.
7 But you shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes."
reflects his nature so it has become our understanding that we must die, and sorrow is accepted as a part of life. He makes it so, because of our confession based on what we have been programmed with from the world's knowledge
. "Be it as you believe" is the law of God. Satan, knowing the law of God, uses it against us by controlling our minds
and feeding us his thoughts
. We believe what we've been taught and therefore testify into reality our convictions. In other words, we have spoken our own destiny into being!
Proverbs 3:13-19 tells us:
13 Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding;
14 For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver, and her gain than fine gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies, and all the things you may desire cannot compare with her.
16 Length of days is in her right hand (eternity), in her left hand riches and honor (no lack in God's economy).
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace (no war).
18 She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, and happy are all who retain her (no sorrow).
19 The Lord by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens;
See also Proverbs 4:7-9.
7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.
8 Exalt her, and she will promote you; she will bring you honor, when you embrace her.
9 She will place on your head an ornament of grace; a crown of glory she will deliver to you."
In Proverbs 8:22-30 Wisdom explains who she is.
22 "The Lord possessed me at the beginning of His way, before His works of old. (Colossians 1:6 tells us Jesus created all things visible and invisible and now we see it was with Wisdom as His helpmate.)
23 I (Wisdom) have been established from everlasting, from the beginning, before there was ever an earth.
24 When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no fountains abounding with water.
25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills, I was brought forth;
26 While as yet He had not made the earth or the fields, or the primal dust of the world.
27 When He prepared the heavens, I was there, when He drew a circle on the face of the deep,
28 When He established the clouds above, when He strengthened the fountains of the deep,
29 When He assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters would not transgress His command, when He marked out the foundations of the earth,
30 Then I was beside Him as a master craftsman; and I was daily His delight, rejoicing always before Him,
Again, we as man turned our back on Wisdom
by ignoring Christ's knowledge and choosing Satan's lies. For this to reverse, for all the heartache to be removed, we need to repent, admit we can do nothing through the knowledge we have had handed down to help ourselves and pray for God to intervene
. Only He, as our Creator can properly sort out the mess we have made on this earth. Only He can judge what can be rescued and what just needs to be destroyed.
Revelation 19:11-13 shows us this will happen.
11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.
13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
He is our victory, our ark
, and in the Word lives Wisdom, the knowledge of God.
Isaiah 11:7-9 shows us the result of eating their fruit. It makes you wonder why we ever chose that of Satan?
7 The cow and the bear shall graze; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 The nursing child shall play by the cobra's hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper's den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
Isaiah 33:6 says,
6 Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times, and the strength of salvation (our ark); the fear of the Lord is His treasure.
13 My son, eat honey because it is good, and the honeycomb which is sweet to your taste;
14 So shall the knowledge of wisdom be to your soul; if you have found it, there is a prospect (or a chance), and your hope will not be cut off. (Pretty black and white!)
3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
I Peter 1:23
23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed (Adam) but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,
I Corinthians 15:45
45 And so it is written, "The first man Adam became a living being." The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
As our Creator He is our Father thus making Wisdom our mother
. The commandment of God demands we honor our father and mother. We did not! As humanity, through Adam and Eve we turned our backs and joined ourselves to Satan! So let us repent
for ourselves as well as for all of humanity for choosing Satan, the Tree of Good and Evil over the Tree of Life, Christ. May we be set free of the curses brought on man
for our disobedience and once again become Trees of Righteousness
, the planting of the Lord.
Isaiah 61:3 prophesied of this.
3 To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified."
Closing thoughts, repentance for our transgressions and those of humanity brings forth promise of a wonderful change
. According to the definitions of the word repent in the Strongs Hebrew dictionary, number 7725 we will see reversal, refreshing, relief, and rescue. In the Greek dictionary number 3340 it says repent means to reconsider, from 3339, to change, transfigure, metamorphose
With these definitions in mind, let us close with this scripture.
I Corinthians 15:49, 51-52, 54
49 And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man (reversal).
51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—
52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed (this is the great change).
54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory." (Eternal perfection will be restored with God's intervention.)
