The Seven Spirits of God

or Ulterior Motifs

Jesus’ reference to sun, moon and stars in Matthew 24 has nothing to do with the physical world, and everything to do with the microcosmic world of the Temple. Because of this, the Covenant Creationists think Genesis 1 is only about the Covenant with Adam, not about physical creation. They’re wrong, just as the literalists are wrong about Matthew 24 predicting the end of the world.

Genesis describes the construction of the world as a Tabernacle. The actual Tabernacle and Temple were microcosms of this (and Christ Himself, as a man, was a microcosm of all of the above [1]). The prophets used de-Creation language such as sun, moon and stars, birds and fish, to describe the end of the microcosmos. Just as Isaiah uses the flood motifs (branch, wolf and lamb, etc.) to describe the end of Israel’s kingdom under a flood of Babylonian troops. Identifying the motifs doesn’t make the source non-historical. Covenant Creationism is false. And having an historical source doesn’t mean the motifs are literal. Dispensationalism is false.

Anyhow, I’ve previously analysed Days 1, 2, and 3. Here’s Day 4. The sun, moon and five visible planets (to the naked eye) are the seven lights on the heavenly Lampstand that watches over Israel (Table) who is/are the firstfruits of the Land (Bronze Altar).

Creation – Ark/Throne
Then God said,
…..“Let there be
……….lights
…..in the firmament
of the heavens

…..Division – Veil - C I R C U M C I S I O N
…..to divide the day
…..from the night;

……….Ascension – Table
……….and let them be (Hailing)
……………for signs (Hierarchy)
………………..and seasons, (Harvest)
……………and for days (Homecomings)
……….and years; (Heritage)

……………Testing – Lampstand watchman over Table
……………and let them be for lights
………………..in the firmament of the heavens
…………………….to give light on the [Land]“;
…………………………and it was so. (Ethics fulfilled in Lights)

……….Maturity – Incense/Ruling Body
……….Then God made (Transcendence)
……………two great lights: (Hierarchy)
………………..the greater light (Covenant Head)
…………………….to rule the day, (Ethics)
………………..and the lesser light (Covenant Body)
……………to rule the night; (Sanctions)
……….the stars also. (Continuity [children])

…..Conquest – Laver – B A P T I S M [2]
…..God set them (as rulers)
……….in the firmament (on the crystal sea)
……………of the heavens (as firstfruits)
………………..to give light (with wisdom)
……………on the [Land], (over the thousands)
……….and to rule over the day (Head)
……….and over the night, (Body)
…..and to divide the light from the darkness. (as Judges, shekinah-eyes!)

Glorification
And God (Transcendence)
…..saw that [it was] (Hierarchy)
……….good. (Ethics)
…..So the evening and the morning (Sanctions)
were the fourth day. (Continuity)

In AD67-70, the angelic “animalia” angels retired. Animal sacrifices ceased. The heavenly court received justified flesh as a new government. As Daniel predicted, the wise shined like stars at the end of the age. [3]

[2] Just like I keep saying. Look at the subject matter here! Those that have been cut at division are now the ones qualified to bear the sword. Not a bubba in sight. He who began the work was faithful to complete it. The literal word was (ful)filled in flesh (matter/motif). The New Covenant sign reflects this. It is for wise judges, not those who cannot judge between good and evil, or even between mother and father. The curds and honey of the Law is for them (Isaiah 7:15-16; 8:4).

    What in the world is covenantal creationism and how is it “false”. Also, how do you make your cloud over on the right rotate? Can you send me the script possibly?

    Hi John

    Covenant Creationism is a development of hyperpreterism. As hyperpreterism says that there is no future, physical consummation, so Covenant Creationism asserts that the Creation account in Genesis 1 is just God “naming” things that were already in existence and giving them Covenantal significance. So it is old earth, and in some cases I guess, theistic evolutionary.
