This is the final blog in a two part series of 7 each, “Cleansing the Heart of the Beast” and then “Claiming the Heart of the Best” We come full circle, to end where it began, in our home. The number 14 (two perfect sevens) represents Salvation.
You might remember how Ben and Kim, Ana, Roy, Ivan, Isla and Asher had to leave their home next door because of mold, and move in to live with us for a year. Their house happened to stand on Lot 14. Leviticus 14 is to do with the laws concerning being healed from leprosy and mildew/mold which represent mortality.
Currently “…..we wait for the blessed hope – the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.” (Titus 2:13) and live in anticipation of the manifestation of this final aspect of our salvation, the redemption of our bodies at the resurrection when “we will put off mortality and put on immortality” (1 Cor. 15:54)
Then we will no longer be limited by these mortal bodies but will have the capacity to move freely and fully between the natural and the spiritual realms even as Jesus, our head, demonstrated after His resurrection.(Jn.20)
You may remember how Father sent a kind old gentleman who was a ‘dead ringer’ for God (named Paul El-ringer) to help us identify the root of the mold problem that had then also surfaced in our home.
He said it would be remedied with a new air exchanger; a unit that would make it possible to move air (breath/spirit) between one realm (indoors) and another (outdoors). Does that sound like a resurrection sign?
Father’s next designated actor on the scene was His namesake George (“My Father is the (Gk.) “georgios”) who I wrote about in the initial blog in the series “Cleansing the Heart of the Beast. Part 1 The Fiery Trial”
Well subsequently George’s workman arrived to fit the new unit. He was appropriately named Adam as Jesus is called “the last Adam” whose work was to undo the mortal damage done by our forefather “the first Adam.” (1 Cor. 15: 22.45)
When I saw Adam’s van pull up. (first photo) again it left no doubt about who was writing, directing and casting this play! You might recall Ben’s beautifully simple yet profound song: Please play and share it often.
In this song I believe Ben speak’s incidentally about the resurrection when we cease from ‘our own work’ and enter into that ‘Sabbath rest’ of God.(Heb.4:9-11)
The two parts of this series find each other perfectly in the line,
“In the heartache we find that’s when the heart breaks through.”
I noticed when George gave me his quote for the work, he appeared to have made a mistake and wrote the model of the number of the unit, 130, two times. The price of the job was $2200. 22 is the number for the Sons of Light.
Ben and Kim had been looking for another ‘clean’ home. Here’s the entrance to their new temporary ‘shelter’:
Beside the Light, and the number 130 is a bird with a red breast.
Ben and Kim continue to live out Psalm 130 on behalf of so many of us:
“Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord; Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.
If you, Lord, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you.
I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope. I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning.
Israel, put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption.He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.”
In Lev. 14 the second bird offered for the healing of mortality was to be ‘dipped’ in the blood (red breast) of the first before being released into the world. It represents those who on the basis of the first ‘dying’ work of Christ are entering into the overlap of these two realms even now as this current ‘age’ gets wrapped up and we enter the great Sabbath Millennium participating in this second ‘living’ work of Christ, manifesting as mature Sons of Light the good news of the kingdom of God. So,
“Arise and shine for your light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen on you. For behold darkness covers the land deep darkness on the minds of the people. But the Lord will rise upon you and his glory will be upon you and all nations will come to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising.” (Is.60:1-3)
P.S. This morning as I went to listen to Ben’s song once more, I realized it had 318 views. Then I went to send the blog and noticed there are 318 people who have requested to be notified about the blogs. The number 318 represents ‘The Remnant” To begin to understand where I got this connection, read Genesis 14.
