The 2 Ransoms of the Christ

Whilst in Manhattan, Gordon rang up Ray Franz (before he died) to invite him to a Passover in 2006.  Ray explained that the heavenly woman has more children the the earthly woman quoting Galatians...

22 For example, it is written that Abraham acquired 2 sons, one by the servant girl and one by the free woman;
23 but the one by the servant girl was actually born in the manner of flesh, the other by the free woman through a promise.
24 These things stand as a symbolic drama; for these [women] mean 2 covenants, the one from Mount Sinai, which brings forth children for slavery, and which is Hagar.
25 Now this Hagar means Sinai, a mountain in Arabia, and she corresponds with the Jerusalem today, for she is in slavery with her children.
26 But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother.
27 For it is written: Be glad, you barren woman who does not give birth; break out and cry aloud, you woman who does not have childbirth pains; for the children of the desolate woman are more numerous than [those] of her who has the husband.
28 Now we, brothers, are children belonging to the promise the same as Isaac was.
29 But just as then the one born in the manner of flesh began persecuting the one born in the manner of spirit, so also now.
30 Nevertheless, what does the Scripture say? Drive out the servant girl and her son, for by no means shall the son of the servant girl be an heir with the son of the free woman.
31 Wherefore, brothers, we are children, not of a servant girl, but of the free woman. (Galatians 4 NWT)

In other words there are more spirit sons of Jacob than there are physical sons of Jacob, in other word there are more saints than Jews. So there are a hell of a lot of saints. There are way more saints than 144,000. But Revelation 14 makes it clear that there are only 144,000 male 1NC Kings. Ray's idea was that there are more than 144,000 1NC male saints. I replied that no there are only 144,000 like it say in Revelation but there is more than one covenant for saints. Ray said: Have you any idea how crazy that sounds. Gordon responded incorrectly and said well your idea of more than 144,000 1NC Kings is equally crazy. That pretty much ended the conversation. It is the writer's biggest regret. What he did not realise is that Ray Franz was the writing committee of the Watchtower for the scripture says...

13 'I know where you are dwelling, that is, where the throne of Satan is; and yet you keep on holding fast my name, and you did not deny your faith in me even in the days of Antipas [short for antipatros, meaning: like the father, i.e. Russellites, researchers], my witness, the faithful one, who was killed by your side, where Satan is dwelling. (Revelation 2 NWT)

So the Russellites were all killed - disfellowshipped. They were the researchers as Russell was. Rutherford was the evangeliser, the salesman. Ray Franz was a researcher  (who essentially wrote the Aid book) and so was a Russellites, like his father, Elijah3, Charles Russell, so was killed on a trumped up charge. 

Here is what Gordon should have said to Ray. How many wives did Jacob, the father of physical Israel have? One was it? And what do wives stand for according to the scripture which you just quoted to me? The answer is that Jacob had children by 2 wives and by 2 slave girls and these 4 women are 4 covenants. Abraham himself had children from Sarah his wife and Hagar his slave girl. But then he also had them from Keturah his slave girl whom he married... 

1 Furthermore, Abraham again took a wife, and her name was Keturah.
2 In time she bore him Zimran and Jokshan and Medan and Midian and Ishbak and Shuah.
3 And Jokshan became father to Sheba and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan became Asshurim and Letushim and Leummim.
4 And the sons of Midian were Ephah and Epher and Hanoch and Abida and Eldaah. All these were the sons of Keturah. (Genesis 25 NWT)

So plainly there is more than one covenant for spirit born children or saints. For the genetic people of God are a mirror for the spirit born people of God, the Israel of God of Galatians 6:16. 

So let's do some research and find our just how many salvation covenants there are.

The Covenants

14 And David was then in the place hard to approach; and an outpost of the Philistines was then in Bethlehem.
15 After a while David expressed his craving and said: Oh that I might have a drink of the water from the cistern of Bethlehem that is at the gate!
16 At that the 3 mighty men forced their way into the camp of the Philistines and drew water from the cistern of Bethlehem that is at the gate and came carrying and bringing it to David; and he did not consent to drink it, but poured it out to Jehovah.
17 And he went on to say: It is unthinkable on my part, Oh Jehovah, that I should do this! [Shall I drink] the blood of the men going at the risk of their souls? And he did not consent to drink it. These are the things the 3 mighty men did. (2 Samuel 23 NWT)

A mighty man for a master mediator.

12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened. But another scroll was opened; it is the scroll of life. And the dead [judicially dead, i.e. not in the scroll of life] were judged out of those things written in the scrolls [the law of the various salvation covenants for the judicially dead] according to their deeds.
13 And the sea gave up those dead in it, and death and Hades gave up those dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds.
14 And death and Hades were hurled into the lake of fire. This means the second death, the lake of fire.
15 Furthermore, whoever was not found written in the book of life was hurled into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20 NWT)

The bible is a book made out of several scrolls, the scroll of Isaiah of Isaiah61 for example. The Greeks understood this. Likewise the book of life of verse15 is made out of several scrolls of life such as the scroll of life of verse12. Each scroll of life is a different salvation covenant. The book of life of verse15 is larger than the scroll of life of verse12 by these extra scrolls. The scrolls, plural, of verse12 are the laws for the scrolls of the book of verse15.

In simple terms there are 3 main salvation covenants covering the 3 stages of progression for a spiritual person. We start with Faith, then we progress to joining a true church and finally we are born again (although many are born again before they find the true church). The 3 covenants cover those with faith, those in a true church and those who are born again as angels. Then there are 3 systems that mankind has existed in since Adam. These are the pre-flood system, the immediate post flood system of Noah and the final Abrahamic system. These 3 systems are the 3 stages of progress of mankind as a whole. And each system has system wide subcovenants of the 3 main salvation covenants, the Faith covenant, the Church covenant and the Born Again covenant.

9 Oh Israel [those in the true religion], trust in Jehovah; He is their help and their shield.
10 Oh house of Aaron [saints], put your trust in Jehovah; He is their help and their shield.
11 you that fear Jehovah [those with faith], trust in Jehovah; He is their help and their shield (Psalm 115).

6 Just as David also speaks of the happiness of the man to whom God counts righteousness apart from works:
7 Happy are those whose lawless deeds have been pardoned [sons of faith] and whose sins have been covered [by a validation sacrifice];
8 happy is the man whose sin Jehovah will by no means take into account [sons of God, saints].
9 Does this happiness, then, come upon circumcised people or also upon uncircumcised people? For we say: His faith was counted to Abraham as righteousness.
10 Under what circumstances, then, was it counted? When he was in circumcision or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.
11 And he received a sign, namely, circumcision, as a seal of the righteousness by the faith he had while in his uncircumcised state, that he might be the father of all those having faith while in uncircumcision, in order for righteousness to be counted to them;
12 and a father of circumcised offspring, not only to those who adhere to circumcision, but also to those who walk orderly in the footsteps of that faith while in the uncircumcised state which our father Abraham had (Romans 4).

So here we are as a race, condemned to death, and dying in our hundreds of thousands daily all due to one little mistake of Adam. How can this be fair? How can age and all these deaths result from the actions of a just and loving God? Why is Adam's mistake even relevant to modern day man and to modern day woman? Who can believe in this fairy story? 

Men and Women

Well, for men, the trouble all started when God gave us fertile women. And for women the trouble all started when Satan introduced them to status. The pre-adamic humans, who were sexual and had children, but could not themselves reproduce sexually and did not get married - see I5. They did not fight wars. They did not build huge cities. They did not strive to impress anyone with fantastic technology, or with their brilliant ability to hurt or humiliate their brother. It took them more than a million years to domesticate the sheep, as if that was a hard thing to do! They appear to have lived a fairly carefree life. But no-one's life is carefree once marriage and sexual reproduction appear. For when sexual reproduction occurs, and when a man marries a woman, the two are said to become one flesh...

5 and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and his mother and will stick to his wife, and the two will be one flesh'
6 So that they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has yoked together let no man put apart (Matthew 19).

They effectively become one body, with the man as its head. The bible then says:

14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified in relation to [his] wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified in relation to the
brother; otherwise, your children would really be unclean, but now they are holy.
15 But if the unbelieving one proceeds to depart, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not in servitude under such circumstances, but God has called you to peace (1 Corinthians 7).

The sanctification is a cleanness of the flesh here. Since the husband and the wife are one in flesh, whilst they are married and both alive (although they are not one in spirit), then baptising the flesh of the one baptises the flesh of the other. Likewise the children, assuming they are born after the marriage (as Paul would have assumed), having come from two clean bodies, are born in a clean body. For the parents pass on to their children the fleshly life condition that they themselves have. Although two born again parents do not produce a born again child by sexual reproduction, which is a reproduction of the flesh, not of the spirit. This inheritance of the fleshly body type of our parents is why we all die, since Adam and Eve have passed on his ageing flesh to the lot of us. 

But those of us who lose our partner for whatever reason are called to peace. Well that was true in the first century, but it is not so true today. The single man in the west is faced with so much pressure in the form of internet pornography, obscene junk emails, half naked women walking past him on a daily basis, thrusting their naked belly buttons into his field of vision, saying, hey look! my womb is empty! He is faced with pictures and news items and videos and movies of more than half naked women, which invade his life whether he asks for them or not. And as if that was not enough he can go to the look but do not touch bars that are all the rage. Why he would want such a thing has always been a mystery to the writer, who would much prefer to go to a touch but do not look bar. But that might actually be satisfactory, so it is not available in this corrupt and destructive system that enflames all the wrong desires and satisfies very few people very infrequently.

The writer is sure that things are equally hard for women but is unable quite to see how, being a man. Actually no, we all reap what we sow, women will pay the same price that men are paying. The price being a lack of emotional security, which is genuine unfailing love.

So let us examine this sin of Adam. God commanded Adam as follows...

16 And Jehovah God also laid this command upon the man [before he created the woman]: From every tree of the garden you may eat to satisfaction.
17 But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it you will positively die/dying you will die (Genesis 2).

The above is of course not only a law but also a prophecy. The scripture does not say: If you eat you will die, it says: In the day you eat from it you will die. But God said to Eve, through Adam, who was her priest, as follows...

2 At this the woman said to the serpent: Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat.
3 But as for [eating] of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, God has said, you [plural] must not eat from it, no you [plural] must not touch it that you [plural] do not die (Genesis 3).

So Adam himself was to die in the day of eating from the tree. Whereas the pair of them were to die if they touched the tree or ate from it, but this death was not said to be in the day of eating.

Now the word 'day' takes a specific meaning in the account in Genesis 2 starting with the words...

4 This is a history of the heavens and the earth in the time of their being created, in the day that Jehovah God made earth and heaven (Genesis 2).

So the 'day' that Jehovah made earth and heaven is defined as 'the time of their being created'. So a 'day' here means the time period covering the event or events being considered, which in the case of the creation of the earth and the heavens is in fact the whole time period of the first 6 creative 'days' of Genesis 1. Likewise these 6 creative days themselves are not literal days, but again are the periods of the events under consideration. However each creative day of Genesis 1 is the same length, for this is the symbolism of the 7 days of the week.  

This metaphorical usage of 'day' is the usage that modern man makes of the word 'day' in the phrase 'in my day'. So given this usage we can see that Adam himself 'died' in the 6th creative day after having eaten and before that day ended. But of course he did not die physically at that time. So we deduce that he died judicially, losing his associated angel. He became un-born again if you like. Whereas the pair of them died physically as a result of eating the fruit but not in that creative day. Not in fact for hundreds of years after the meal. That is the meaning of the penalty that Eve referred to in Genesis 3. Unlike Adam, Eve herself did not die judicially when she ate the fruit because she did not sin with her spirit, since she was actually deceived by Satan.

14 Also, Adam was not deceived, but the woman was thoroughly deceived and came to be in transgression (1 Timothy 2).

Adam was not deceived and so did sin with his spirit and so lost his associated angelic soul. But the reader may be thinking at this point. Wait a minute, God had control of everything in the Garden, how can this have been Adam's fault? Well, Adam did have the capability to say no, but he did not have the emotional or spiritual maturity or wisdom to exert his will power and actually say it. So God permitted Satan to test him through Eve with a test that he was not mature enough to pass. So yes God, knew he would fail and yes God deliberately set him a task that was too hard for him. God prophesied Adam's failure again when he introduced him to Eve saying:

24 That is why a man will leave his father and his mother and he must stick to his wife and they must become one flesh (Genesis 2).

Adam did leave his father, God, and his mother, the holy spirit  He chose to stick to Eve rather than to God's law. So these words are also a prophesy that Adam and Eve were to get married after their sin, which sin amounted to or involved a marriage proposition and some kind of sexual activity, which lead them to become ashamed of their nakedness - see U41

25 And both of them continued to be naked, the man and his woman, and yet they did not become ashamed (Genesis 2).

6 Consequently the woman saw that the tree was good for food and that it was something to be longed for to the eyes, yes, the tree was desirable to look upon. So she began taking of its fruit and eating it. Afterward she gave some also to her husband when with her and he began eating it.
7 Then the eyes of both of them became opened and they began to realize that they were naked. Hence they sewed fig leaves together and made loin coverings for themselves (Genesis 3).

Prior to this eating of the fruit 'when with her' Adam was like a pre-pubescent schoolboy. Using the parallel of Jesus life with Adam's - see U41, one can deduce that Adam resisted Eve for 3˝ days before the poor guy was slaughtered! This resistance period ended when they become sexually active, immediately prior to or during or immediately after their sin. So that they associated the sin with the sexual activity so that sex became a shameful thing to them. Alternatively perhaps they just realized the power of these parts around the time of their sin and so decided to give these parts some kind of protection at that time. The contemporaneousness of their sexual awakening and their sin against God leaves little doubt that Eve used Adam's sexual desire for her to entice him to sin as regards eating the fruit of the tree. Just as Satan used Eve's desire for status, to entice her to sin and eat the fruit first. Eve herself was not the forbidden fruit however. 

But really the test on Adam was a side show, it was a bluff, he was never going to resist a gorgeous naked woman, in circumstances where there were no other women around and he had no experience of good and bad other than this one command not to eat from a tree. The real test was on Satan. He easily had enough experience to know good from bad and right from wrong. So he was exposed as a murderer for the first time, when he deceived Eve into killing herself and her husband...

44 You are from your father the Devil, and you wish to do the desires of your father. That one was a manslayer when he began [as a serpent], and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of [the lie] (John 8).

It is true that Eve was deceived and she sinned because she failed to consult her priest Adam (who was not yet her husband). It is also true that Adam loved his wife more than he loved God's law, and so he chose to follow his wife down the path of sin, rather than to leave her to walk that path alone. In a sense Adam's sin was a triumph of love over righteousness. But it is no good trying to obey the second law, to love your neighbour, if you do not obey the first law which is to love God. For God invented love and invented in us the capacity to love our neighbours. The aim of all of our lives, although we none of us realise it, is to learn how to love like God does. It is not to learn how to love like our neighbour does. That is why loving God is the first law and loving our neighbours is the second. God knows the rules for people and for societies, which enable love to blossom, we do not know them and neither do our neighbours.

But the whole point is that these two mistakes were not peculiar to Eve or to Adam. Today precisely the same thing is happening all over the world. Women everywhere mistakenly believe that they do not need to consult their priests or husbands anymore. The media re-enforces this view constantly. And husbands everywhere are still choosing their wives over God's law. 

There used to be a saying in the Jehovah's Witnesses and it is true in any fundamental Christian or for that matter Jewish religion (by fundamental we do not mean extreme, we mean sincere and genuine). If a brother falls in love with a girl who is not from the church then there are only two outcomes. The girl joins the church or the brother leaves. This is because their bond with each other is almost always greater than the brother's bond with God. But this was precisely the sin that Adam committed. Adam sinned for all men, in the sense that as a race, none of us would have done any better given his limited experience. 

Now it is true that there do exist a few women today (perhaps in outer mongolia), who do actually consult their husbands before taking life changing decisions, and even fewer, who having consulted their husbands, then listen to the advice that they get. Likewise there are a few men, who do choose God's law over the emotional manipulation of their wife. But it is the hardest thing that we men and women have to face, this choice between God's way and our own flawed basic instincts. And we are what we choose, because God has given us that glorious freedom.

Adam and Eve failed because they made decisions based upon their basic instincts, basic instincts that we all share. They did this because they did not have enough experience of dealing with bad, to overrule these instincts. So no man and no woman in their circumstances would have done any better. The flaw in Adam was the designed-in flaw in all men and the flaw in Eve was the designed-in flaw in all women. And it is our job to overcome these flaws. For God deliberately gave us these flaws, for our flesh, our bodies are the physical incarnation of Satan, but our minds and our hearts are the spiritual incarnation of God. And the battle that was fought in heaven between God and Satan, for thousands of years before Adam and Eve were conceived is that battle that is fought everyday by their children between our flesh and our spirit. Paul described it thus...

22 I really delight in the law of God according to the man I am within,
23 but I behold in my members another law warring against the law of my mind and leading me captive to sin's law that is in my members.
24 Miserable man that I am! Who will rescue me from the body undergoing this death?
25 Thanks to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So, then, with [my] mind I myself am a slave to God's law, but with [my] flesh to sin's law (Romans 7).

And fighting this battle is worth the effort. For the day will come when men and women will cease destroying each other and actually love and help one another, and all the pain of this system is the price we are paying for that day. May that day come soon!

The Need for a Ransom

We have seen in I10 why we all die. Physically it is because we inherit genes from our parents which cause our bodies to age  And they inherited ageing genes from their parents, and they inherited ageing genes from their parents all the way back to Adam and Eve. Judicially, it is because Adam and Eve proved that our race could not be trusted to obey God's laws (in fact we cannot be trusted to obey any laws at all). And God's laws are simply the minimum set of rules necessary for the long term survival of a society of free willed beings. So we have no future as a society unless we can one day be trusted to obey God's laws. So the job that God has, is to teach us his laws. And our job is to learn them. And no one makes the effort to learn anything unless they understand what good such learning will do them. So God has to teach us why we need to obey his laws as well. He will teach all of us that lesson at Armageddon, if we have not grasped it before then, that is.

So Adam died and entered what the bible calls the first death. He became conscious of nothing (Ecclesiastes 9:5) in a sleeping angel. He went into Hades - see I13. He was anaesthetized with heavenly anaesthetic. We are only alive today due to the mercy of God who gave Adam and Eve a stay of execution long enough to procreate. So whereas we ourselves are conscious, our judicial condition is that of our mother and our father. We are judicially unconscious if you like. Now it is obvious that God cannot make any kind of agreement with an unconscious person, a dead person only alive by means of a stay of execution. So we have to be made judicially conscious before we can enter into any covenant with him. Furthermore any would be mediator of a salvation covenant needs to be saved himself, since a priest or mediator must himself possess the cleanliness that he is passing on to others. A priest or mediator cannot pass on to others a cleanliness that he does not himself possess. A judicially dead man cannot mediate judicial life. As Jesus might say: The dead cannot mediate life. But judicially dead women do mediate physical life to their children whenever they give birth. They are the physical priests of mankind. 

But it is as unnatural for a women to be a spiritual priest, mediating salvation or spiritual life, as it is for a man to give birth physically. We have different roles to play, different qualities and different jobs to do for each other and for God. Men give life after death or life in the next system. Women give physical life in this system. But the life that women mediate is subject to a death sentence which is enforced exclusively through our bodies which age and die.

5 Look! With error I was brought forth with birth pains, and in sin my mother conceived me (Psalms 51).

The sin was not the act of sexual reproduction, for that is not conception. The conception in sin, is the death penalty encoded in the genetic material of the sperm and the egg. The conception makes a new flesh which is subject to Eve's death penalty. So all of her sons and daughters likewise have life subject to the same death penalty. We all exist today only due to the stay of execution granted to Adam and Eve by God, and we all die today due to that same one penalty. 

God will not make a legal agreement directly with humans in this condition. For we are condemned to death and are only alive by means of a stay of execution on our sentence. So God has nothing with a future to make any agreement about the future with. He has nothing judicially alive to make an agreement with. Furthermore the mediator, being judicially dead, cannot pass on judicial life and being in a fleshly body that is condemned to death cannot pass on a fleshly body that is not condemned to death by the 'dirty water' principle (you cannot clean anything with dirty water). So Instead he makes the effort to solve this problem whilst still obeying his own principles, by choosing one man for each covenant or subcovenant, whom he knows will turn out good, and be saved, and by lifting the death penalty on him (if necessary). Of course he cannot just lift his own death penalty. 

He does it on the basis that someone who is not under a death penalty has agreed to give his life as a ransom for the mediator. 

Let us not beat about the bush here. In order to have an indefinite future one needs to be born again, because our present bodies have no indefinite future. We discovered in I12, that being born again is being born as an angel, although one is not aware of that angel if one is still alive as a human. We call the angelic body that all human born again Christians have, their 'associated angel'.

So human mediators must be born again in order that Adam's death penalty is lifted from them, so that they can pass on something other than death to those in their covenant! In fact they can pass on either an angelic body (immediately) or a non adamic human body (available in the Kingdom of God) to their sons by covenant.

For the sake of Clarity here are all the possible bodies that a spirit can possess in our present understanding...

1. Adamic human body, ageing and under Adam's death penalty, judicially dead (you and me)

2. Non adamic human body, ageing, but not under Adam's death penalty (Jesus, John the baptist, Melchizedek, Lazarus after he was resurrected etc). The ageing genes of this body come from the holy spirit, not from Adam, so carry no death penalty judicially. Everyone in such a body is either raptured or killed, none of them die of old age. If one of them did then God would be a murderer. The ageing is merely cosmetic. Lazarus must have been killed if he was a 1NC saint or raptured if he was an ELC saint.

3. Indefinitely lasting non ageing human body (Adam before he sinned, and all of us in the kingdom of God on earth).

4. Angelic body without everlasting life (male and female)

5. Angelic body with everlasting life (male and female)

6. Divine body (asexual, outside time, can exist outside heaven, immortal)

7 The first death, physical death, Hades, one's spirit is asleep in an angelic body

8. The second death, spirit death, Gehenna. Time sharing an angelic body with several other spirits. No body of your own at all. A spirit with no personal angelic or human body. 

The only way for a human to get a non adamic human body in this system is to be born with it or to be resurrected into one like Lazarus, Jairus' daughter, the synagogue ruler's daughter, the Widow of Nain's son, the Widow of Zarephath's son, the Shunemite widow's son, the guy thrown into Elisha's grave, Dorcas, Eutychus, etc. But we can all be born again and gain associated angels, even associated angels with everlasting life, if we stay faithful under test and get sealed in holy spirit after having been born again.

God needs and wants to make a legal agreement with us in order to save us from the death penalty that we presently suffer from. In this wicked world, when there is a contract out on you, it means someone wants you dead. But in the heavens when there is a contract out on you it means God has given you an agreement not to die, but to live in the next system. 

Now God cannot just choose a few people and say: Right then, you, you and you are all now judicially conscious and I am wiping out the death penalty in your cases. That would break his own justice and it is his justice which gives us all a future. It might not seem like that since we are actually all condemned by his justice presently, but that is because we are like little pyromaniac children, we are a danger to ourselves and to all around us. We need to be condemned until we learn enough to be trusted. So how can God, without breaking his own justice, lift the death penalty on one of us in a fair way? 

Well, as mentioned above, he needs to find another person who is not under any death penalty to give us his life status. Someone has to give up their life in some respect in order that we can gain our life in that respect. This process is called a Ransom. The beauty of a deep understanding of what a ransom is all about is the grasping with the mind that a ransom is a sacrifice, and that sacrifice is the basis of all freedom. For the measure of one man's freedom is the extent of his brother's sacrifice for him. So a ransomer is a lover of freedom. He is a champion of freedom.

So Americans especially and in fact all those who understand freedom and sacrifice in time of war or at any other time will see the great beauty of sacrifice and how it gives freedom and is necessary for freedom and itself results from free will. How many mothers would give their lives at the time of childbirth if it meant that their child might live? Many indeed. And if the child is born alive but the mother dies, how many mothers would regard that as a failure? Few indeed. For in our hearts we do understand the concept. But we don't quite get our heads round how fundamental sacrifice is to a society of free willed beings. Using our free will to sacrifice for the benefit of others is their freedom. And since we all reap what we sow, it is also our freedom in the giant elliptic equation of all human interaction. And their sacrifices are our freedom. And if we all choose to sacrifice what we presently want or have or desire, in favour of a set of divine laws that protect all of us, and give the rest of us what they need, then we are all free. That is our future. But if we choose to focus only on what we want and have and desire and ignore the needs of others, then we will not be free for long and just as the ones whom we ignore have no future, neither do we.

No man has understood the full details of how this works for at least 1500 years (since the fall of the second true Christian religion in 444 AD U151) because it is quite difficult to discover from the bible and because as a race mankind has all but lost the capability to think logically and in particular, as a result of the TV, we have lost the courage of our personal deductions. We don't give any credibility to our own thoughts any longer because they do not appear on the TV and so they have no status. 

Jesus understood that free will means sacrifice so he agreed to come down here and just give us his life status. In fact he was killed by murdering Pharisees through the hands of murderous Romans due to a betrayal by his murderer of an angelic brother, Satan. But judicially the method of his death is not so important. What is important is that he was willing to forego the use of both his human and his angelic bodies in order that we might have a second chance at life.

The 2 Ransoms of Jesus Christ

For some pre-amble on the ransom of Jesus for Adam please see U7. Adam was born with 2 bodies as we saw in section I12. He was born again when he was 30 years old. So that the breath of life was actually blown into two nostrils and into two lungs, two receptacles for God's spirit of life, his human body and his associated angelic body. He had an indefinitely lasting non ageing human body and he had an associated angelic body, since he was an angelic son of God as well. When he sinned he immediately lost his associated angelic body, and his non ageing human body was converted to become an ageing human body. Then 897 years later he lost that ageing human body and fell asleep in the first death.

So we, his sons and daughters have also lost these two things. We are born neither in non ageing body nor with an associated angelic body. But since Adam's sin was not his personal fault but was rather his manifestation of a deliberate design flaw of God, it is God's will that having accepted that we have such a flaw, and even before we have learned properly to conquer it, we should be saved from the catastrophic penalty which his justice required. 

9 Jehovah is not slow respecting his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with you because he does not desire any to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance (2 Peter 3).

So in order for us to recover these two things that Adam lost, two ransoms need to occur. We need a certain someone to give us a non judicially condemned human body and a certain someone else to give us an angelic body. Now Jesus as we discovered in section Intro16 had a very interesting body structure from a life status standpoint. He was the angel Michael, who had everlasting life, inside the non adamic human Immanuel, the son of God born to Joseph and Mary whose DNA was altered so that he was no longer a son of post fall Adam but became a son of pre fall Adam, a son of man, and was nonetheless a son of David, in fact a son of edenic David, the non adamic version of David that will appear in the Kingdom of God. This sort of genetic manipulation is possible for us to understand today. And no problem for our creator of whom the bible declares...

30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered (Matthew 10).

4 He is counting the number of the stars; All of them he calls by [their] names (Psalms 147).

For our God is not short of reasoning power or memory capacity. But Jesus' non adamic body, although judicially uncondemned, was in fact ageing, so that Jesus looked the same as everyone else...

3 This is the carpenter the son of Mary and the brother of James and Joseph and Judas and Simon, is it not? And his sisters are here with us, are they not? So they began to stumble at him (Mark 6).

We can deduce that Adam grew up twice as slowly as modern man since Adam was 33˝ years old when he discovered sex and realised he was not naked (so presumably he was not far from puberty at that age). Likewise the pre-flood post edenic humans grew up 4x slowly as modern man and since all the pre-flood patriarchs of Genesis 5 after him had firstborn sons after they became 60 years old, whereas today boys reach puberty between 12 and 15. Likewise many of the immediate post flood patriarch of Genesis 11, had their first children at around 30 and so were growing up twice as slowly. This sort of thing is covered in I15. Here is a comparative table of lifespan multipliers and childhood multipliers for the patriarchs...

Now had Jesus himself been in a non ageing body like that of Jared or Methuselah he would have not been seen as normal. In fact he would not have been ready for his ministry aged 30, for he would have been equivalent to a 15 year old. So he had an ageing but judicially uncondemned body (with no childhood or lifespan multiplier). So if one was ransomed by such a body, then one would not live for any longer a period of time as a human, but one would no longer be condemned for the duration of ones life as a human and therefore one could enter into a covenant with God in this condition. Whereas if one is ransomed by the ever-living angelic body of the archangel Michael then one gets everlasting life as an angel after one leaves ones human body behind. For a ransom confers the life status of the ransoming body to the ransomee. It confers the body type of the ransomer onto the ransomee. So Jesus had two bodies available for ransoming humans. Make no mistake when Jesus died he gave up his right to live in that human body actually for the duration of this system, and he gave up his right to live in his angelic body once that ransom is applied.

Jesus was dead for 10 hours and Adam was condemned for 10 hours

We deduce in U12, from Jesus' words: Into your hands I entrust my spirit and from the fact that one cannot be in the heart of the earth whilst one is asleep in the first death, the Jesus was resurrected in the night of 33Nisan15, in fact around 7 hours into it since he died at the 9th hour on 33Nisan14. But Paul majestically tells us that...

6 the (one) having given himself corresponding ransom over all (ones), the witness to appointed times own; (1 Timothy 2 KIT)

So if Jesus died for 10 hours then so did Adam, since the ransom corresponds with the penalty for the sin. Jesus died at the 9th hour of 33Nisan14. His death began the sacrificial process which fixed Adam. So may well have occurred at the same time that the ARC was made which began the judicial process which fixed Adam. So Adam was condemned and unransomed for 10 hours presumably from the 9th hour of the day, the hour when Jesus died on the cross, to the 7th hour of the night, the hour when Jesus was resurrected.

Jesus' human body ransomed Abraham and Jesus angelic body ransomed Adam

God made the first Abrahamic covenant (the 1AC) with Abraham in Genesis 12 saying...

1 And Jehovah proceeded to say to Abram: Go your way out of your land (#ra) and from your relatives and from the house of your father to the land (#ra) that I shall show you; 
2
and I shall make a great nation out of you and I shall bless you and I will make your name great; and prove yourself a blessing.
3
And I will bless those who bless you, and him that calls down evil upon you I shall curse, and all the families (
txpXm) of the ground/earth (hmda) will certainly bless themselves by means of you [the 1AC] (Genesis 12).

The blessing of this covenant is the privilege of becoming one of God's true people, as all the circumcised ones were through the Land and Circumcision Covenant of Genesis 17 (the LCC). Abraham had to wait for 24 years after the 1AC, before he got the circumcision covenant (which was added to the pre-existing land promise covenant) wherein all of his children were to get circumcised and all of them were to become God's people exclusively and get the promised land...

8 And I will give to you [Abraham] and to your seed after you [Abraham's genetic children] the land of your alien residences, even the entire land of Canaan [Nile to Euphrates, 'greater Canaan'], for a possession to time indefinite; and I will prove myself God to them.
9
And God said further to Abraham: As for you, you are to keep my covenant, you and your seed after you according to their generations [Isaac, Jacob, Levi, Kohath, Amram, Aaron - the 6 submediators of the LCC].
10 This is my covenant [LCC] that you men will keep, between me and between you men and between your seed after you [all of Abraham's genetic descendants and all the male members of his household] Every male of yours must get circumcised.
11 And you must get circumcised in the flesh of your foreskins, and it must serve as a sign of the covenant between me and you (Genesis 17).

So all the genetic descendants and household members of Abraham became God's people through the LCC (the Land and Circumcision Covenant), but only Abraham's sons through Jacob were to be in the true religion, which appeared later - the Law of Moses.

But the 1AC of Genesis 12 was not just for the genetic seed of Abraham as the LCC was. It was for those with the faith of Abraham as Paul explains...

7 Surely you know that those [who act] out of faith are the ones who are sons of Abraham [through the 1AC].
8 Now the Scripture, seeing in advance that God would declare people of the nations righteous out of/due to faith, declared the good news beforehand to Abraham, namely: By means of you all the nations will be blessed [paraphrased 1AC - nations are the families of the earth in a sense].
9 Consequently those [who act] out of faith are being blessed together with the faithful Abraham (Galatians 3)

Paul is explaining that God's people are those with the faith of Abraham not those with the genes of Abraham, and that these sons of faith of Abraham are and have always been the sons of the 1AC. Although this was not made clear to mankind until after the Gentiles were called. 

What we are saying is that after God made the 1AC with Abraham, God's true people became the sons of faith of Abraham, i.e. those who had the faith in God that Abraham had. Then after the Circumcision Covenant was made, all of Abraham's genetic sons also became God's true people (whether they had any faith or not). So the genetic sons of Abraham were a subset of all of God's true people by virtue of the LCC. They were the visible true people of God, but they were not the only true people of God. For there were plenty of humans with the faith of Abraham who were not of his seed. And the 1AC states that all the families of the ground will be blessed by means of Abraham, not just his family. In fact it is all the families who have one person who has the faith of Abraham who will be blessed. And in every family of the ground, somewhere amongst its members, there is indeed a person with such faith in God.

Now archetypically, just as the sons of Jacob were a subset of the sons of Abraham, so the true Christian congregation, the people in the true Christian church are a subset of all God's people, who are now and have always been the sons of the 1AC, ever since the day that covenant was inaugurated on 1943Nisan14 BC. In fact we shall discover that the sons of Jacob, prefigure the born again Christians, the spirit begotten Christians, and that the sons of Isaac (a larger group containing the sons of Esau as well as the sons of Jacob) prefigure all true Christians in the true religion, many of whom are not spirit begotten, and that the sons of Abraham (an even larger group containing the sons of Ishmael as well as the sons of Isaac) prefigure all of the true people of God whether these people are in the true church or not and whether these people profess to be Christians or not. Incidentally by 'sons' we mean 'all descendants'. For this is how the bible uses the word 'sons'.

Now God's true people, the sons of faith, not necessarily faith in Jesus, but faith in God, as Abraham had, must be covenanted to God. So someone has to ransom Abraham in order that he can have a covenant with God at all, and in order than he can then pass on the blessing of the covenant, the blessings of Abraham. But Paul explicitly tells us that this someone is Jesus.

13 Christ by purchase released us from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse instead of us, because it is written: Accursed is every man hanged upon a stake.
14
The purpose [of Jesus' death] was that the blessing of Abraham [the blessing of the 1AC] might come to be by means of Jesus Christ [the human validation sacrifice of the 1AC] for the nations, that we might receive the promised spirit through our faith (Galatians 3).

Here are some other scriptures referring to Jesus' ransoming of Abraham with his human body...

22 Hence it was counted to him [Abraham] as righteousness.
23 That it was counted to him was written, however, not for his sake only,
24 but also for the sake of us to whom it is destined to be counted [the sons of the 1AC], because we believe on him who raised Jesus our Lord up from the dead.
25 He was delivered up for the sake of our trespasses and was raised up for the sake of declaring us righteous [being the validation sacrifice for those with the faith of Abraham, the sons of the 1AC] (Romans4).

6 For, indeed, Christ, while we were yet weak, died for ungodly men at the appointed time [33Nisan14 at the mid point of the 1AC entry from 1943Nisan14 to 2008Nisan14] (Romans5).

13 He delivered us from the authority of the darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of his love [The Kingdom of God],
14 by means of whom we have our release by ransom, the forgiveness of our sins (Colossians 1).

28 Just as the Son of man came, not to be ministered to, but to minister and to give his soul a ransom in exchange for many (Matthew 20).

27 Also, he took a cup [1AC] and, having given thanks, he gave it to them, saying: Drink out of it, all of you;
28 for this is my 'blood of the covenant,' which is to be poured out in behalf of many for forgiveness of sins (Matthew 26).

The ransom of Abraham saved many but not all, since many humans lived before Abraham, furthermore it resulted in a simple forgiveness of past sins whereas the other ransom that Jesus performs, with his everlasting angelic soul, saves everyone eventually and results in a lot more than a forgiveness of past sins. For Paul again says...

22 For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive (1 Corinthians 15).

Not 'many', but 'all'. For many are sons of Abraham, but all are sons of Adam. Well, except the non adamics. Yes, there is a second ransom that Jesus performed with his everlasting angelic body for the good book says...

14 how much more will the blood of the Christ, who through an everlasting spirit offered himself without blemish to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works that we may render sacred service to [the] living God? (Hebrews 9).

23 Not only that, but we ourselves also who have the firstfruits, namely, the spirit, yes, we ourselves groan within ourselves, while we are earnestly waiting for adoption as sons, the release from our bodies by ransom (Romans 8).

30 Also, do not be grieving God's holy spirit, with which you have been sealed for a day of releasing by ransom (Ephesians 4).

When one is sealed in holy spirit then one has everlasting life, but this comes from the ransom of Jesus' everlasting angelic soul. It is a ransom of Adam because we read...

5 For one God, one also a mediator of God and of men, man, Christ, Jesus.
6 The one having given himself a corresponding ransom [to Adam] over all ones [not many but all] (1 Timothy 2).

The only way to ransom everyone is to ransom Adam. So if Jesus Christ ransomed us all (pre-flood, peri-flood and post-flood) then he must have ransomed Adam who is the father of all humans in need of ransoming. For the justice of God is soul for soul, not soul for 6 billion souls...

23 But if a fatal accident should occur, then you must give soul for soul,
24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
25 branding for branding, wound for wound, blow for blow (Exodus 21).

So it is written...

45 It is even so written: The first man Adam became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit (1 Corinthians 15).
And there is the correspondence between the first and the last Adam, but there were a few in between as well! - see I21.

And Paul explains that through one act of justification, the result of one act of trespass was negated...

18 So, then, as through one trespass the result to men of all sorts was condemnation, likewise also through one act of justification the result to men of all sorts is a declaring of them righteous for life (Romans 5).

Covenants, Ransoms, Mediators and Validation sacrifices

Bible reading: Genesis 12 -15,17,22, Galatians 3, Romans 4

We are now going to discuss the detailed mechanism by which the life status of Jesus' two ransoming bodies is transferred to us judicially dead humans. Or as the bible would say, the dead.

God picks a person who he knows with his foreknowledge is going to pass the test that he is going to set him. This person is given a covenant, he becomes the mediator of that covenant. 

Definition: A salvations covenant is an agreement between two parties for the salvation of the sons of the covenant.

Definition: A testing covenant is an agreement to enter into a salvation test

Definition: A sealing covenant is the blessing given when a salvation test is successfully passed.

Definition: A Mediator of a covenant with God is man/angel with whom God (directly or indirectly) has made a covenant, who subcovenants with a third party man/angel or group of men/angels in order that he/they too may enter into a covenant with God through him.

Definition: A Master Mediator is a Cherub, an angel (or a non adamic human with an angelic soul) who covenants directly with Jehovah, and mediates a sealing covenant (the ARC, CRC or FRC) between him and a Blessing mediator.

Definition: A Blessing Mediator is a human who covenants with a Master Mediator and mediates a sealing covenant (the ARC, CRC or FRC) between him and one or more system mediators. 

Definition: A System Mediator is a human who covenants with a Blessing Mediator and mediates a between him and either one or more submediators or directly with the group of humans saved by his covenant, the children of the covenant, the sons of the covenant. His mediation being the entrance of the sons of the covenant into a salvation test.

Definition: A Sub Mediator is a human who covenants with a system mediator and mediates between him and the group of humans saved by his covenant, the children of the covenant, the sons of the covenant. A submediator is not ransomed. He does not have his own salvation vehicle. But he has a agreement to put his covenant children into the system mediators salvation testing vehicle. He is really an agent for the system mediator.

Definition: A Validation sacrifice is a non adamic man or angel who ransoms a Blessing mediator or a System mediator. Blessing mediators always have sealing covenants and are always ransomed by Master Mediators  System mediators always have testing covenants.  

Jehovah is the God of the living not of the dead. So you cannot enter into a salvation covenant if you are shall we say completely dead. You need a testing vehicle which is living in order to exist as far as God is concerned - from a salvation testing standpoint. That vehicle is a non adamic human body or an angel. You do not need to actually possess either of these vehicles but you do need to have them as a promise. A system mediator can promise to give you such a vehicle because he is ransomed by his validation sacrifice and therefore has that vehicle from that ransom.

So a salvation covenant tree for a saved person looks like this: 

God > Master Mediator (Cherub) > Blessing Mediator > System Mediator > Sub Mediator > Saved person

The Mediator of the covenant is then ransomed by the ransomer who is called the validation sacrifice of the covenant. The mediator himself is the ransomee of the covenant. The Mediator then has children who enter into his salvation covenant and they inherit the life status of that mediator, when that mediator dies.

In the case of Abraham and the 1AC, God made a covenant with Abraham that he would be ransomed by Jesus' human body. This body was the validation sacrifice of the 1AC. This did not actually mean that Abraham became non adamic whilst he was alive because Jesus had not died at the time Abraham lived. It meant that Abraham had a contract to become non adamic (in the sense of being free from Adamic death as Jesus' human body was) after he died physically, so long as Jesus did actually die in accordance with his agreement with God. In property terminology Abraham exchanged contracts on his new body, but that contract could not be completed either for him or for his covenanted sons until Jesus performed in accordance with his contract to give his life for us.

But God could now regard Abraham as being non adamic and make a whole load of deals with him conditional upon Jesus sacrifice. And this he did, having full confidence in the love and wisdom and courage and faith of his son Michael. 

But if you go to a property dealer and show him a contract to buy the White House in 5 years time, you still have a marketable commodity! Likewise once Jesus had agreed to ransom Abraham, Abraham was able to enter into an agreement based not upon that ransom but upon the agreement for that ransom. 

So Abraham is contractually promised a non adamic body, that of Jesus, so he can now pass this contractual promise onto his sons by covenant. So all those who enter into the 1AC also get the promise of this non adamic body, because their father by covenant has such a body. But Abraham cannot pass on his life status to anyone until he has died, because you cannot replace his adamic body whilst he is still alive and living in it. Said body only becomes available at his death. All the sacrifices under the law of Moses show us this. The body of the bull and the blood of the bull were only available to be given to God once the bull was killed. This is why Paul said...

15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions [that were] under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. (KJV)
15 So that is why he is a mediator of a new covenant, in order that, because a death has occurred for [their] release by ransom from the transgressions under the former covenant, the ones who have been called might receive the promise of the everlasting inheritance. (NWT)

They key to understanding these words is to realise that the Greek word meaning covenanter also means bequeather or will maker or testator as the King James puts it. So a covenant is a legal arrangement for passing on to the covenant sons of a mediator the inheritance left by the will maker.

There are two validation sacrifices needed to start and to end as salvation test. The sealing sacrifice (the bull - which stands for endurance, for one is sealed after one has endured the test. If you have the endurance of a Bull then you will be sealed) and the testing sacrifice (the goat - before it is determined whether or not you are a sheep). The one being saved enters into the test by being washed in the blood of the one and passes the test by being washed in the blood of the other. So in the case of the ICC, the water baptism of the Christian church, one is washed in the blood of the ransomer of Isaac upon baptism and in the blood of Methuselah upon sealing. You can be washed in the promise of that blood. But you cannot get the blessing of the covenant until that blood is shed. There is no ICC blessing until the blood of both of these sacrifices is available. One cannot inherit anything until the inheritance becomes available. And the inheritance is not available until the bequeather dies. And the bequeather is the validation sacrifice. 

So the mediator of a covenant receives the covenant blessing from the validation sacrifice by ransom, and he passes it on by agreement with covenant sons whilst he is living. The mediator is passing on the benefit of the will of the bequeather to his covenant sons. The mediator is the executor of the will of the validation sacrifice.

Being totally specific about the ICC...

The will is made by the validation sacrifice.
God is the trustee of the will
Holy Spirit is the main executor of the will
Isaac is the main beneficiary (being ransomed by the validation sacrifice). He is the main heir of the will of the validation sacrifice
Moses, Elijah1, Elijah2, Elijah3, Elijah4, the sub mediators of the ICC, are the sub beneficiaries of the will, joint heirs with Isaac of the validation sacrifice and direct covenant children of Isaac.
Isaac and the submediators are sub executors of the will under the direction of the main executor, the holy spirit
When an LW priest water baptises someone into the 4EC, he becomes a covenant ancestor of the candidate acting as a covenant parent in line under Elijah4 and Isaac and acting as a sub-executor of the will of the validation sacrifice.
 
The submediators are not heirs of Isaac, we are heirs of his ransomer and we are his direct sons of Isaac by covenant. We do not benefit from the death of Isaac. We benefit from the death of his validation sacrifice and from the covenant procreation of Isaac, who has 4 covenant sons who are the mediators of the 1EC, the 2EC the 3EC and the 4EC. We are also sub executors of the will of the validation sacrifice of the ICC. 

So the sons of the ICC had a contract on a contract on a non adamic but ageing body, before the relevant validation sacrifice was made. Then they had a contract on a non adamic but ageing human body after it was made. They finally get a non adamic Isaaic body after 2012Sivan15/16 if they have a valid water baptism at that time. In all cases the life status of the validation sacrifice is passed on to them by the executor through the mediator and sub mediators. 

So a son of the 4EC is a covenant son of Elijah4 and a covenant grandson of Isaac and an heir of the ICC validation sacrifice with Isaac and Elijah4 through the covenant procreation.

But it is apparent that Isaac's non adamic body is not going to get anyone through the whole kingdom of God, since it was an ageing body. So we need yet another ransom with a non ageing and non adamic body in order to get us a vehicle which can give us human life in the Kingdom of God for a thousand years. This body has to come from another non adamic human. We only get this body when we pass the testing process that we enter into through the ICC. For every salvation covenant enters its sons into a baptism test. The Kingdom body then, is the prize for passing that test.

So the mediator of a covenant executes the will of the validation sacrifices in that covenant chain in accordance with the will of God, to pass on the salvation benefits from its benefactors to its beneficiaries. 

However some of us will take a lot longer than others to reach that destination. But there is the beauty of free will! When each of us reaches that destination it will be because we chose that path, not because anyone else chose it for us or because anyone else forced us to go down it. It is like Neo said to Mr. Smith in the last of the Matrix movies when he was asked: Why do you keep on fighting? Neo answered: Because I choose to!

The Master Plan

Now that we have seen how things worked with Jesus, and how he ransomed both Adam and Abraham. And now that we know that he had two brothers in this endeavour, Gabriel and Melchizedek. And now that we know that between them they came down in 15 different bodies. And now that we know that all of these bodies are used to save us by ransoming various mediators of various salvation covenants. We can see that there is a whole legal jigsaw puzzle of all of God's salvation plan for man to be put together. If you do not want to be a spiritual lawyer and this sort of thing is not your cup of tea, then please move on to the next section. But remember this. We are only asking you to read the plan, whereas Michael, Gabriel and Melchizedek had to die in order to validate the plan. And God himself had to watch his beloved sons die for us. So perhaps the task of reading the plan is worth some of your valuable time, time that would be for ever cut short were it not for the love of God, and Michael and Gabriel and Melchizedek?

We are just going to state the whole thing first and then look at the details and the scriptural proofs later. Please have a look at the covenant diagram, which is a pdf - covenant chart. You will need the Acrobat Reader program to open it. You can get this from - www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.  Better still print it out. There are 3 successive systems of this world from a covenant standpoint. These are the pre-flood system, the peri-flood system and the post flood system. We take the post flood system as starting with the First Abrahamic Covenant of Genesis 12, which was inaugurated, when Abraham crossed the Euphrates into the land of Canaan in fulfilment of his obligations under that covenant on 1943Nisan14 BC. 

The three saviours of man, Melchizedek, Gabriel and Michael each have a master salvation covenant. The greatest of these 3 is that of Michael (Jesus) who ransomed Adam angelically. He has the ARC, the Angelic Ransom Covenant. This is the name of the covenant that he made with God to come down here and ransom Adam and save us. Of course Michael had to be alive as an angel at the time Adam sinned in order for him to be able to make that covenant with God, in order for us to have a future. Therefore Jesus himself had to be possessed by an angel who was alive at the time of Adam's sin. That angel was Michael the Prince of Israel who will become the King of the Kingdom of God, the greater Israel - see Intro16. The ransomer of Adam of course buys mankind and then does the greater bowl of soup deal with Satan - see U17 - in order to buy the angelic firstborn rights from Satan with a 6,000 year lease of his property, the sons of Adam, and therefore becomes the archangel who we know from Jude 1:9 is Michael. 

21 However, I shall tell you the things noted down in the writing of truth, and there is no one holding strongly with me in these
[things] but Michael, the prince of you people (Daniel 10).

The permanent blessing of the ARC is everlasting life as an angel. 

The second greatest covenant is that of Gabriel, who ransomed Noah's human body. He has the CRC, the Church Ransom Covenant. The permanent blessing of CRC is to be a human priest in the Kingdom of God. The third greatest covenant is that of Melchizedek, who ransomed Adam's human body. He has the FRC, the Faith Ransom Covenant. The permanent blessing of the FRC is to be a citizen of the kingdom of God. 

[1] The FRC, the Faith Ransom Covenant is Master mediated by Melchizedek who died as a ransom in Jared and covers all those with faith in the true God and with love of God or love of their fellow man or with love of righteousness, i.e. those who obey their own conscience and hate what they perceive personally as bad. The FRC is the master covenant for everyone who is a 'good guy at heart'. You do not have to join any religion to be saved by the FRC. God made the FRC agreement with Melchizedek to Ransom Adam's human body. 

45 It is even so written: The first man Adam became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit (1 Corinthians 15).

But if Jesus is the last Adam, then Adam is the first Jesus. So they were both generated in the same way, by immaculate conception, in vivo surrogate fertilisation followed by Gene zapping - see Intro17. All those who enter the FRC (including the pre-adamics) get Adam as a covenant father who has Jared's body as a ransom. Jared lived 962 years and since the maximum life span of a son of Adam after Eden was 960 years, we know that he was non adamic. In the case of Jared, his body did not age, he had an Edenic body, the sort of human body that we will all possess on earth in the Kingdom of God. Those who become sons of Adam by covenant, the sons of the FRC get their body back upgraded to be indefinitely lasting in the Kingdom of God on earth. The resurrection into their new and upgraded bodies is the blessing resulting from the FRC. The FRC is the covenant between Melchizedek and God. The Faith Blessing Covenant, the FBC is the immediately inferior covenant between Melchizedek and Adam. The beneficiaries of this covenant all have the right to a perfect human 'Jaredian' body in the kingdom of God thanks to the ransom of Melchizedek in Jared.

[2] The CRC, the Church Ransom Covenant, is Master mediated by Gabriel, who died as a ransom inside Methuselah in the year of the flood. It covers all those who are 'water baptised' into any of the true religions in circumstances where false religions also exist. There were no false religions in the pre-flood system. Post flood false religions spring from the tower of Babel which was built in Babylon in the peri-flood system. God made the CRC with Gabriel and he died in the year of the flood inside Methuselah as a Ransom for the human body of Noah, the father of all those saved by water baptism. Noah died in 2021 BC, aged 950 - see U101, with a 960 year max lifespan body which he gave to God in payment for Noah's inherited sin from Adam. Gabriel gave God Methuselah's non ageing body as a ransom for Noah's human body so that all the sons of Noah by covenant, in fact by the Church Blessing Covenant, the CBC, can get a resurrection in a non ageing upgraded version of their old body. This is the permanent blessing of the CBC, the covenant between Gabriel who died in Methuselah and Noah. One permanent blessing of the CBC is a Methuselaian body in the Kingdom of God. But there is another blessing under this covenant.

At the end of the day, those in the CRC, cease being Noah's sons genetically and become his sons behaviourally, for Noah was a preacher of righteousness, which all those in the true religion also are...

5 and he did not hold back from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with seven others when he brought a deluge upon a world of ungodly people (2 Peter 2).

This preaching of righteousness was also true of the Jews who persuaded many proselytes to obey the Law of Moses. The CRC is the covenant for the priests of the Kingdom of God, their priesthood being the second blessing God gives under the CBC for finding and for having the courage to join and remain in a true religion, withstanding all of Satan's sick and destructive and dishonest trickery as he tries to bowl you over.

[3] The ARC, the Angelic Ransom Covenant, is Master Mediated by the angel Michael who possessed Jesus during his ministry - see Intro16. Michael died as an everlasting angel, an angel with everlasting life, inside Jesus, in order to ransom Adam's associated angel. For Adam was born again when he was born, he had two souls, two vessels for his spirit, for God blew the spirit of life into both of his two nostrils, two receptacles for the spirit of life - see I12. All humans who have not inhaled too much cocaine today are a witness as Adam was that we each have two possible vessels for the breath of life, the human vessel and the angelic one. The Third Blessing Covenant, the Angelic Blessing Covenant the ABC, between Jesus and Adam, gives Adam back his associated angel which God took in punishment on the day he sinned. But Jesus upgrades Adam's indefinitely lasting associated angel to an everlasting angel, for this was the angelic body that he gave in Ransom. Yes, the ransomer gave more to God that the Ransomee had lost. So all those who gain the blessing of the ABC get everlasting life as angels. Mind you we do have to die first or board the ark. 

Those in the ARC are Adam's sons by the choosing of God just as Adam was. All those who are born again are sons of the ARC and of the ABC. These people are the Kings and Priests of the Kingdom of God, both in heaven and on earth. Because having an everlasting angelic body and an indefinitely lasting human body gives you a choice between two very nice vessels. The two vessels that Adam lost. But we personally do not make the choice as to which vessel we spend the Kingdom of God in, Jehovah makes that choice for us. So here is a summary of the 3 Master Covenants and of the 3 Permanent Blessing Covenants for man, which span all three systems, the pre-flood, the peri-flood and the post flood systems.

Master Covenant FRC CRC ARC 
Blessing Covenant FBC CBC ABC
Master Mediator and Ransomer Melchizedek Gabriel Michael
Blessing Mediator and Ransomee Adam's human body Noah Adam's associated angelic body
Ransoming vehicle Jared Methuselah Jesus
Blessing of the Covenant Non ageing human body Non ageing human body and priesthood Everlasting life in Angelic body and priesthood and kingship

Genetic Sons and Covenant Sons

15 For neither is circumcision anything nor is uncircumcision, but a new creation [is something] [being born again, gaining an angelic body, becoming a spirit son of God, a spirit begotten son of God].
16 And all those who will walk orderly by this rule of conduct, upon them be peace and mercy, even upon the Israel of God [The sons of Jacob/Israel by covenant, the sons of the JAC] (Galatians 6).

A genetic son is a fleshly descendant of his two parents. He undergoes no test, he just appears. Well actually his birth is more of a test on the mother than it is on the son! And no one argues that such a descendant is not a proper son of his parents for the family resemblances are there for all to see. 

Now we as humans rejoice when the son of a great footballer becomes a great footballer, or when the son of a great orator becomes a great orator. But actually it is very few of the sons and daughters of great parents who achieve the greatness of their fathers or mothers. It is true that Brian Clough's son, Nigel, was a very good footballer, but his father was the best manager that England never had. And on that subject it is a good thing that the writer does not decide who goes to Gehenna, or those in the FA who choose to overlook Cloughie would be pot roast! 

But seriously Beethoven's son, Mozart's son, Rossini's son, Einstein's son, Picasso's son, Leonardo da Vinci's son, Michael Angelo's son, Zowie Bowie, Dweezel Dillon, Renoir's son, Martin Luther King's son, Pele's son, Bobby Charlton's son, George Harrison's son, where are they? They none of them achieved the greatness of their fathers. Although Dexter King is trying to get some justice for his father as regards who really killed him. 

Sons do not in general follow their fathers in spirit, they follow them in flesh, with the exception of some really great fathers who dedicate their lives to teaching their sons and daughters, and some really great sons and daughters who actually listen in humility. History shows us that Laila Ali (Mohammed Ali's daughter) and Nigel Clough and Kate Hudson (Goldie Hawn's daughter) and Michael Douglas and Gwyneth Paltrow etc. are the exceptions rather than the rule. Perhaps daughters are more likely to follow in their parent's footsteps today than sons!

But who really is the son of Einstein? Is it a genetic descendant of his who by random chance popped out of a woman he slept with, or is it Stephen Hawking who made a conscious decision to spend his life grappling with the same galactic equations that Einstein did?

Who really are the children of the Fab 4? Dhali Harrison and Stella McCartney, or is it perhaps the thousands of songwriters and performers inspired by the melodies, harmonies and rhythms of the Beatles?

Who really are the sons of Jacques Cousteau? His physical progeny on dry land or all those who take a video camera underwater like he did?

And who really are the sons of Neil Armstrong? The children of his loins down here on the earth, or the children of his heart up there in space?

The 12 sons that Jacob fathered were not chosen by him, they were given him by God through 4 women. But the 12 Jesus chose were his disciples, they were people who wanted to learn from him (at first), they were not people he produced with the aid of a human wife. Although in truth they were born again through the heavenly woman who is the holy spirit, God's wife.

This question of descent, the question of how to be a son, is what God is asking us through the juxtaposition of the Jews of the old testament with the Christians of the new testament. For the Jews were a race of genetic descendants of Jacob, whereas the Christians are a race of those who attempt to be behavioural descendants of Jesus. The way Paul put it was...

28 For he is not a Jew who is one on the outside, nor is circumcision that which is on the outside upon the flesh.
29 But he is a Jew who is one on the inside, and [his] circumcision is that of the heart by spirit, and not by a written
code. The praise of that one comes, not from men, but from God (Romans 2).

You see we all have free will and the capability to reason. These things are everyone's sovereign possession. They are a gift from God which only Satan and his blind followers try to deny us. It is our use of these divine qualities that truly determines whether or not we are a son of someone, not our genetic code. If we choose to sacrifice thousands of other people's lives in order to gain more power or glory for ourselves for a few years, then we are sons of today's politicians, we are sons of this world. If we choose to sacrifice ourselves for the benefit of thousands of others, whether the sacrifice is small or large or even our very life, then we are sons of the next world and we are sons of freedom. For freedom requires self sacrifice. That is a sacrifice by us for others, and in a free society such sacrifices are reciprocated. For truly, we are all precisely as free as the sacrifices that our brothers are prepared to make for us. 

We are all as free as the sacrifices we are prepared to make for each other.

The US and the UK and the Australians used to know what that kind of sacrifice meant and we rightly honour those who made that sort of sacrifice for our freedom in two world wars, a sacrifice that this generation, thank God, has not been called upon to make. But today we are corrupted, and now we go in for the other kind of sacrifice and don't even bother to count how many civilian casualties we cause in our pointless evangelism of democracy to a country which is not suited to that method of government. 

The choices we make determine our covenant parenthood or lack of the same. Our covenant parenthood determines our role in the next system, the Kingdom of God. Judicially, all those of questionable covenant parentage (the covenant bastards) end up in Hell, Gehenna, the 1,000 year sin bin.

The Testing of Covenant Children

Since covenants are entered into as a result of choices, they require a period of testing to determine how strongly the candidate holds these choices. Many a general election has been won not by the party whom the majority of people support, but by the party who got the larger majority of their people to the polling station. Elections are not about which way you would like to vote, they are about which way you actually vote and if you can be bothered to vote at all! They are not about which choice you have made, they are about how strongly you adhere to that choice and how forcefully you express it. So personal choices require time and testing to be verified. It is not hard to obey God's laws for 5 minutes. It is quite hard to obey them for 5 years, until you understand that they are all actually in your interest. When a believer holds true to his choices and passes the test, then the bible describes him as 'sealed' or as 'declared righteous'. At this point he enters into one of the 3 blessing covenants. Incidentally the testing for the FBC, the covenant of faith, is all done by the angels, with no human involvement at all.

So because there is a necessary period of testing, God cannot just stick people in the FRC, the CRC or the ARC since they would then immediately get a permanent blessing. For whoever enters the ARC gets everlasting life as an angel. So one obviously needs to prove oneself under test, before God will make such a commitment on your behalf. After all he is going to have to live with you for ever in circumstances where the best of us find it hard or impossible to live with the same partner for more than 25 years! 

So each of the 3 systems has a whole tree of temporary covenants which enter you into the various temporary tests which, if passed, put you into one or more of the 3 permanent blessing covenants. As above, we will simply state the whole program first for the Abrahamic system, the post flood system, and then you can hang the flesh on the skeleton later when we give you the scriptural justifications. Each of the 3 systems has a main system covenant for each of the 3 Master Covenants (with the exception of the pre-flood system which did not see the CBC).

The Salvation Covenants

Please have a look at the covenant chart. You will need the Acrobat Reader program to open it. You can get this from - www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html. The System Covenants in each system then have various subcovenants pertaining to each true religion that exists in that system. The 1AC of Genesis 12, has no subcovenants, as Paul said...

15 Brothers, I speak with a human illustration: A validated covenant [The 1AC, validated by Jesus hanging on a stake], though it is a man's, no one sets aside or attaches additions to it (Galatians 3).

Each true religion of the Abrahamic system has a CBC subcovenant and each true Christian religion of the Abrahamic system has an ABC subcovenant. 

The 4 Elijah covenants, EC1, EC2, EC3, EC4 are the legal basis for the 4 true Christian churches - see I45. Jesus was the chief cornerstone of the first, Paul was the cornerstone of the second, Russell, who founded what is now the Watchtower, was the cornerstone of the third and Gordon, the writer, is the cornerstone of the fourth. For every temple sanctuary had 4 corners and this is why the scripture says:

42 Jesus said to them: Did you never read in the Scriptures, 'The stone that the builders rejected is the one that has become the chief cornerstone. From Jehovah this has come to be, and it is marvelous in our eyes'? (Matthew 21).

And for all of you who think that Jesus was the only human validation sacrifice in the entire plan of God, consider this ye babes...

22 Yes, nearly all things are cleansed with blood according to the Law, and unless blood is poured out no forgiveness takes place.
23 Therefore it was necessary that the typical representations of the things in the heavens should be cleansed by these means, but the heavenly things themselves with sacrifices that are better than such sacrifices [we are saved by many better sacrifices].

Master Mediators

Very few men or angels covenant directly with God, because St. Paul has told us literally:

5 One for God, one and mediator of God and of men, man, Christ, Jesus (1 Timothy 2 - Literal translation).

The orange text is in fact a prophetic form, a triple designation - see Code6b. The above is a deliberately ambiguously written scripture. In the literal meaning, which applies at the time Paul wrote this scripture. The correct translation is:

5 For one God [there is], one [who is] also a mediator of God and of men, [a] man, Christ, Jesus (1 Timothy 2 - Literal translation)

This translation is forced by the order of the words 'one and'. Nearly all bibles incorrectly translate the above as:

5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, a man, Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2 - NWT).

The mistranslation arises from the words of Paul's statement that...

20 Now there is no mediator where only one person is concerned, but God is only one (Galatians 3).

This statement means that Jehovah God cannot mediate a covenant between himself and someone (which is obvious from the definition of a mediator as being a sub covenanter). This means that the mediator cannot be God himself, which forces the mistranslation unless one understands that Jesus is a God as well as Jehovah.

The mistranslation is also contrary to the wording in Greek. For it would only be the correct translation if the Greek read 'and one' rather than 'one and'. Jesus is a God, and was of course a man, but he is not the only God, if one takes God to mean 'of divine constitution' (i.e. an angel). He is not the only angel who has mediated between Jehovah and man as we shall see. But he is presently the only angel permitted to perform such mediation, because since his death, he has been the firstborn angel of Jehovah (replacing Satan in this regard), and so has the firstborn rights, which we call the Firstborn Master Covenant. He has also been since his death the only God requiring worship, who is also a mediator between God and man. Jesus was elevated in status from an angel, to a God requiring worship, after he died and was given the name above every other name named, which name is Jehovah, the family name now of both of our Gods - see I26.

9 For this very reason also God exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every [other] name (Philippians 2).

Now Jesus earned this increased status together with the rights of the firstborn angelic son of God, when he gave his life for us and to prove God correct. Satan lost these rights when he killed Adam and Eve. The right of the firstborn angelic son of God is that God will do everything through him. In fact Satan was the first angel born to God, the first angel to be created by God - see Intro19. So if Satan had not lost his firstborn rights at Adam's sin, then God would not have been able to covenant directly with anyone other than Satan. But since Michael did not earn these rights for himself until he died on the stake/cross, there was a period between Adam's sin and Jesus' ransom during which God was free to covenant with any of his angels. But after Jesus died, since he then had the firstborn rights, all covenants had to be master mediated by him. This is the logic behind Paul's words to Timothy, penned after Jesus died.

5 For one God, one also a mediator of God and of men, man, Christ, Jesus.
6 The one having given himself corresponding ransom over all ones (1 Timothy 2).

The full literal meaning is therefore:

For there is one God requiring worship, one who is also a mediator (of a ransom covenant) between Jehovah and men, someone who was a man but now is an angel, and who became a God to be worshipped after he died, Jesus Christ.

The 3 Master Covenants between God and Man without using the Successive Designations Principle of the Code 

We all know about the New Covenant (1NC), that Jesus made at the last supper, and we all know about the First Abrahamic Covenant (1AC) of Genesis 12. But the angelic salvation offered by the 1NC did not just appear with Jesus. Neither did the blessing of Abraham, the benefit to the sons of the 1AC, which is the resurrection into the kingdom of God on earth, just appear with Abraham. Both of these covenants have superior covenants, which we call Master covenants. There are in fact 3 Master covenants for the salvation of our species. We discovered them by applying the bible code to the scripture that the NWT mistranslates as:

 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, [a] man, Christ, Jesus (1 Timothy 2)

This scripture has 3 successive designations for the mediator between God and men. He is called ‘[a] man’, ‘[a] Christ’, and ‘Jesus’. Using the Successive Designations Principle of the code, this means that there are 3 word symbolic meanings, 3 further threads, to this account. So there are 3 mediators between God and men referred to in these 3 greater meanings. In the literal meaning of course the mediator is Jesus Christ. However we have not yet covered the code, so we will instead deduce the existence of these 3 master mediators between God and man from the literal meaning of other scriptures. 

We know from 1 Timothy 2:6 quoted above that Michael (the angel who possessed Jesus at his baptism) ransomed Adam in some way, so let us examine the ransoming blood of Jesus’ Master covenant, the ARC. It is not possible for Jesus to Ransom Adam and then for his blood only to apply to people who lived after Abraham. His blood must actually apply to the forefathers of Abraham as well, so there must be a covenant made before the Abrahamic Covenant, which passes on the ransoming value of Jesus’ angelic 'blood', his angelic life. Taking the argument to its limit, there must be a Master Ransom Covenant, which the 1NC sits below. We call the Master Covenant between Jesus and God, the Angelic Ransom Covenant, we call the immediately inferior Universal Blessing Covenant between Jesus and Adam, the angelic blessing covenant, the ABC, because Jesus died to give us everlasting angelic life which is the righteous decree in the spirit from God, and this as we shall see is the 3rd righteousness that a man can get. 

22 However, now, because you were set free from sin but became slaves to God, you are having your fruit in the way of holiness, and the end everlasting life.
23 For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6).

14 how much more will the blood of the Christ, who through an everlasting spirit offered himself without blemish to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works that we may render sacred service to [the] living God? (Hebrews 9).

11 And yet that is what some of you were. But you have been washed clean [into the ICC] but you have been sanctified [into the JAC], but you have been declared righteous in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ [into the CRC] and with the spirit of our God [into the ARC] (1 Corinthians 6).

The righteous decree in the spirit is the end of the spirit baptism. This is the point where one gets everlasting life. So the blood of Michael gives everlasting life, which is a completed spirit baptism, which is entry into the ARC, which entry is for ever and cannot be revoked. This is how Jesus becomes our eternal father.

6 For there has been a child born to us, there has been a son given to us, and the princely rule will come to be upon his shoulder. And his name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9).

5 For one God, one also a mediator of God and of men [i.e. between God and men], man, Christ, Jesus.
6 The one having given himself corresponding ransom over all ones,
7 which is witnessed to at its own appointed times (1 Timothy 2 - Literal translation).

Jesus corresponded to Adam and ransomed him. This ransom is said to be 'over all ones'. This does not mean that Jesus' ransom of Adam covers all of Adam's genetic sons. 

28 Just as the Son of man came, not to be ministered to, but to minister and to give his soul a ransom in exchange for many [not all, but many] (Matthew 20).

As we shall soon see in the case of the first Abrahamic covenant, covenants do not cover the mediator's genetic descendents, they cover those who enter the covenant being mediated. As we have discussed the 1AC does not cover those with the genes of Abraham, but rather it covers those with the faith of Abraham, for it was a covenant given as a result of the faith of Abraham who left the house of his father and went to the land that God showed him, namely Canaan. So the 1AC therefore had living faith as its entrance criterion. By entering the 1AC one becomes a son of Abraham's faith rather than a son of his loins. 

Likewise, the corresponding ransom for Adam by the Master Mediator/Covenanter/Ransomer Jesus, is over, or covers, all those who enter into the ABC, which Adam, his ransomee mediates. These people may be genetic sons of Adam or may be pre-adamic or non adamic! They may have lived in the pre-flood, the peri-flood or the post-flood systems. They are the men of 1 Timothy 2:5.

15 But it is not with the gift as it was with the trespass. For if by one man's trespass many died, the undeserved kindness of God and his free gift with the undeserved kindness by the one man Jesus Christ abounded much more to many.
16 Also, it is not with the free gift as it was with the way things worked through the one [man] that sinned. For the judgment resulted from one trespass in condemnation, but the gift resulted from many trespasses in a declaration of righteousness.
17 For if by the trespass of the one [man] death ruled as king through that one, much more will those who receive the abundance of the undeserved kindness and of the free gift of righteousness rule as kings in life through the one [person], Jesus Christ (Romans 5).

10 For [the death] that he died, he died with reference to sin once for all time. But [the life] that he lives, he lives with reference to God (Romans 6).

So Jesus is the Master Mediator of the ARC with God and his ransomee, Adam, is the  Mediator of the ABC with us. 

Melchizedek is a Master Mediator

But Paul relates Jesus, the high priest of the ARC, to Melchizedek as follows...

20 This hope we have as anchor for the soul, both sure and firm, and it enters within the curtain, where a forerunner has entered on our behalf, Jesus, who has become a high priest according to the manner of Melchizedek (Hebrews 6).

But how did Jesus enter within the curtain of the holy place?

11 However, when the Christ came as high priest of the good things that have come to pass, through the greater and more perfect tent, not made with hands, that is not of this creation,
12 he entered no, not with the blood of goats, and of young bulls, but with his own blood, once for all time, into the holy place and obtained an everlasting deliverance (Hebrews 9).

Now if Jesus is a high priest according to the manner of Melchizedek, then Melchizedek is a high priest according to the manner of Jesus. So Melchizedek also entered into some kind of holy place with his own blood and performed a ransom, which was the covenant basis of his priesthood. In other words he was also a master covenanter between God and men. But Melchizedek started life as a non adamic man, as Jared in fact, the Father of Enoch - see I20. 

Gabriel is also a Master Mediator

We know that Jared who was Melchizedek was non adamic because he lived for 962 years which was 2 years over the 960 year pre flood adamic limit see I20 and see I15. We know too that Enoch his son was non adamic and possessed by Michael - see I16. Now there is a 3rd musketeer to this triumvirate in the form of Methuselah, the son of Enoch. Methuselah lived for 969 year and was therefore also non adamic. He was in fact the 4th Adam, and Enoch was the 3rd Adam and Jared (Melchizedek) was the 2nd Adam. All Adam's have children by covenant. In fact all non adamic humans either mediate a covenant or validate a covenant through sacrifice. They are all saviours of Adam. Now the order of salvation is faith water spirit or faith spirit water. Whereas the order of birth of these 3 non adamic patriarchs was Melchizedek, Enoch, Methuselah. Now Melehcizedek has the Faith Ransom Covenant, Enoch was possessed by Michael who has the Angelic Ransom Covenant, so Methuselah has the Church Ransom Covenant. Their birth order therefore reflects the order of salvation which is Faith then Spirit then Water from a sealing standpoint. But this non adamic trio appears all over the scriptures - see I21.

Time Period Melchizedek Gabriel Michael
Pre-flood Jared Methuselah Enoch
Immediate post flood Cainan Eber Isaac
Pre exilic prophets Jehoida Elijah Elisha
Peri-exilic prophets Daniel Jeremiah Ezekiel
Messianic Simeon John Jesus

There is more than this because Jesse, the father of David, Samuel the prophet and Samson were also non adamic - see U107. The 3rd non adamic musketeer was possessed by Gabriel in the case of Simeon, John the baptist and Jesus, and from this and the other triplets we deduce that Methuselah was also possessed by Gabriel and therefore Gabriel has the 3rd master salvation covenant, the church ransom covenant. 

Now there were two cherubs on the ark of the covenant in the most holy place, not one. And Solomon himself built two huge Cherubs for the holy place where the ark was to be kept. 

23 Further, he made in the innermost room two cherubs of oil-tree wood, ten cubits being the height of each one (1 Kings 6).

But the ark itself is symbolising the angelic body of Jesus - because this body is the validation sacrifice of the Angelic Ransom Covenant which we all are eventually saved by. So neither of the two Cherubs on the ark or in the most holy place are Michael who is Jesus. So who are they? Well, we know that Gabriel is one, since the two Cherubs guarding the way to the tree of life must have been Michael and Gabriel. And we know that there are three Cherubs in all from Ezekiel 10 where a Cherub who is also a man clothed with linen thrusts his hand in between the two Cherubs of the Chariot of Jehovah which has 4 wheels (One needs to read Ezekiel 10 carefully to see that there are 2 Cherubs and 4 Wheels in the chariot). So who is the third Cherub? Well since Cherubs are involved in God's interactions with man, and since Melchizedek is a high priest according to the manner of Jesus, he is the third Cherub. Having started life as a human, he is the 'most human' of the three. Satan himself used to be a Cherub...

14 You are the anointed cherub that is covering, and I have set you. On the holy mountain of God you proved to be. In the midst of fiery stones you walked about.
15 You were faultless in your ways from the day of your being created until unrighteousness was found in you (Ezekiel 28).

Satan was the firstborn angel of God - Intro19. God created him first. God gave him the Firstborn Master Covenant, he agreed to act only through Satan, his firstborn, this is why he was the angelic overseer of the Garden of Eden. He lost his firstborn right when he sinned, lying to Eve and deceiving her into killing Adam (who was not deceived, but who loved his wife more than he loved God's laws). At this point Satan ceased being a Cherub. So a Cherub is an angel who covenants directly with God. So Gabriel and Melchizedek must also covenant directly with God as Michael does with the ARC.

But how does Gabriel's priesthood work? Well, when Gabriel appeared to Zechariah, he was standing at the right side of the incense altar, and he said:

19 In reply the angel said to him: I am Gabriel, the [one] having been standing alongside [you] [i.e. supporting you, implied pronoun imbalance!] in-sight-of/before [enwpion] the God [but also acting as a priest before God], and I was sent forth to speak to you and declare-as-good-news these [things] to you. [This means that Gabriel is the angel supporting the priesthood, i.e. the father of the priesthood, i.e. the mediator of the CRC, the master covenant of the priesthood].

Now God, although he is almighty, never breaks his own laws, for he is not a hypocrite like powerful men down here. Likewise, Gabriel, the angel of the Lord, will not break God’s laws. So he had a right to be standing in the holy place. Yet even Gabriel himself was not in the most holy place with the Ark. He was in the holy place with the incense altar.

So Gabriel has also entered into the first compartment of the holy place as a priest and he is sitting upon the ark of the covenant next to Melchizedek in the second compartment in statue. So plainly he is also a priest to God similar to Jesus. He cannot of course be a priest after the manner of Aaron, since he does not trace his genealogy to Levi. But being a cherub, and having entered himself physically into the holy place (but not the most holy place), the blood of his priesthood must also enter into the first tent but not into the second.

Now only the blood of Michael enters into the second compartment, the most holy place, to give an everlasting deliverance, since it is he who baptises in Holy Spirit and fire (putting you into Gehenna - it is still a baptism!), not Gabriel or Melchizedek. So the blood of Gabriel enters into the first compartment, where he stood with Zechariah, supporting Zechariah, in fact supporting the priesthood of the Jews. But Zechariah and his wife Elizabeth both were declared righteous not in the spirit but in the flesh at the time...

6 They both were righteous before God because of walking blamelessly in accord with all the commandments and legal requirements of Jehovah (Luke 1).

The law of Moses, whose commandments these two were obeying provided entrance into Gabriel's master covenant as we shall see. But Gabriel describes himself as the one who has been supporting Zechariah, so he is the angel, the cherub who supports human priests. He is the mediator of the master covenant for all human priests, in all 3 systems. This covenant we call the CRC.

Now the blood of Melchizedek enters into another holy place of some sort. It appears that Melchizedek is outside in the inner courtyard in this symbolism.

Now Gabriel was in John who started a water baptism - I19, and Michael was in Jesus who started a spirit baptism (by baptising only Peter, who he renamed).  And in fact every time the three of them, Melchizedek, Gabriel and Michael appear, they perform the following baptism routine.

Melchizedek presides over the entrance of Gabriel, and then Gabriel presides over the entrance of Michael. Every time, that is, except the first time, when Melchizedek presided over the entrance of Michael and then later presided over the entrance of Gabriel. And yet here is Gabriel standing by the incense altar right where Michael enters into the Most Holy.

If you put this whole Jigsaw together you have Gabriel as the master covenanter of a water baptism (the holy place), and Michael as the Master Covenanter of a spirit baptism (the most holy place). You also have Melchizedek having a covenant that must exist outside of baptism (since there are no other baptisms performed by men). This is the covenant of God’s love, the covenant of faith. For the order of progression of every Jew and every Christian, is Faith, Water, Spirit, or Faith, Spirit, Water. In other words it is Melchizedek, Gabriel, Michael, or it is Melchizedek, Michael Gabriel, the very two orders that these three Cherubs appear in when they possess humans.

Now Adam lost two souls when he sinned, he lost his associated angelic soul (for he was born as both an angel and a human, he was born again when he was born if you like, since he was a son of God without sin and such sons are angels) and he lost his edenic human soul. His indefinitely lasting edenic human soul was converted into a 960 year long ageing human soul by God, as his last act of creation at the very end of the 6th creative 'day' of Genesis 1.

Well, Michael ransomed the one soul, the angelic soul, for Adam and his sons, and Melchizedek ransomed the other soul, the human soul. Gabriel ransomed Noah. This is why the scripture says...

4 But as for Abel, he too brought some firstlings of his flock, even their fatty pieces. Now while Jehovah was looking with favor upon Abel and his offering (Genesis 4).

Abel knew that two ransoms were required to fix his dad! Incidentally Abel offered God precisely what God required, that is how sacrifices work. You do not bring along what you feel like, you bring along what God requires on the day determined by him to the place determined by him - see U47 - The church of Cain. These two firstlings represented Michael in Jesus and Melchizedek in Jared. Adam would have explained this to both of his sons. One listened, the other played power games.

The ransom covenant for Michael, by which he becomes our angelic father, is the ARC and the blessing covenant for his ransomee (the associated angel of Adam) we call the ABC (angelic blessing covenant). 

The ransom covenant for Gabriel, by which he becomes our edenic father we call the CRC (Church Ransom Covenant), and the blessing covenant for his ransomee (the human soul of Noah) we call the CBC. 

The ransom covenant for Melchizedek, by which he becomes the edenic father of all of the true people of God, those with faith in God, whatever their religion or lack of religion, we call the Faith Ransom covenant (the FRC), and the blessing covenant for his ransomee, Adam, we call the FBC (Faith Blessing Covenant). 

When Melchizedek died in Jared ransoming Adam, he became the father in faith of the pre-adamics and the adamics. So now we can see precisely the similarity between the priesthood of Jesus and of Melchizedek...

4 Jehovah has sworn, and he will feel no regret: You are a priest to time indefinite according to the manner of Melchizedek! (Psalm 110).

11 If, then, perfection were really through the Levitical priesthood, then, since the people have been legally bound by it, what further need would there be for another priest to arise according to the manner of Melchizedek and not said to be according to the manner of Aaron? (Hebrews 7)

They are both Master Covenanters ransoming one of Adam's two souls. Incidentally Melchizedek has to ransom Adam himself, and not one of his sons or Adam himself cannot ever become a human again. And it is God's purpose for Adam to regain everything that he lost due to his assassination by Satan through Eve. Adam's 'father' was pre-adamic and not judicially condemned and so in no need of a ransom and was never meant to live in Eden and so not the blessing mediator of the FBC as we once thought. 

So now we can finally understand the deep things of Hebrews 9, that Paul was not speaking in detail about! 

2 For there was constructed a first tent in which were the lampstand and also the table and the display of the
loaves. And it is called: The Holy Place.
3 But behind the second curtain was the tent called: The Most Holy.
4 This had a golden censer and the ark of the covenant overlaid all around with gold, in which were the golden jar having the manna and the rod of Aaron that budded and the tablets of the covenant.
5 But up above it were the glorious cherubs overshadowing the propitiatory [cover]. But now is not the time to speak in detail concerning these things (Hebrews 9).

For the first compartment is the CRC, for the sons of water, and the second compartment is the ARC, for the sons of spirit, and the temple courtyard is the FRC for those with true faith in Jehovah (before 33Nisan16) or in Jesus and Jehovah (after 33Nisan16) or with a good conscience or with a good community conscience (sighing and groaning over the detestable things happening and translating this pain into selfless acts). Although it is not possible to have a clean conscience without faith, so anyone who can spell and holds a good conscience must accredit his spelling teacher. For more details of the temple symbolism - see U509.

If you like, Melchizedek is the father of the orphans. He fathers those who God himself adopts, due to their faith in him or in Jesus, or due to their good conscience which is their faith in goodness, even though they never join a true religion.

15 They are the very ones who demonstrate the matter of the law to be written in their hearts, while their conscience is bearing witness with them and, between their own thoughts, they are being accused or even excused (Romans 2).

4 And Jehovah went on to say to him: Pass through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and you must put a mark on the foreheads of the men that are sighing and groaning over all the detestable things that are being done in the midst of it (Ezekiel 9). So in summary...

All those with true faith or with a good conscience but no baptism are ransomed by Melchizedek via the FRC.
The water baptised who remain loyal are ransomed by Gabriel via the CRC
The spirit baptised who remain faithful are ransomed by Michael via the ARC.

Let us be absolutely clear about the FRC. Christians who believe in the Trinity and Jews who do not believe in Jesus, and Kabbalah mystics who do not believe in the 2nd law, and Muslims who believe in Mohammed and in the Koran and Hindus who believe in Brahman who is ‘more than the universe’ but not a person, and Buddhists who believe in enlightenment apart from a God etc., and the followers of the Dali Lama who believe in re-incarnation and Seikhs who believe in one true God but not in his son, and those of the Bahai faith who believe that the Aga Khan carries the light of God, all have a worthless and misplaced faith from a true church point of view. But if they love God more than they love their church they can yet be saved. They have fallen for the snares of Satan, who delights in providing unseaworthy lifeboats full of gaping holes, and watching sincere people jumping into them and drowning. Many of them of course are genuine in their love for God, and have faith in God but do not have an accurate knowledge of his activities or requirements. These ones are saved by their faith not in their church or in their priest, but in God. They become sons of the FRC, not because of their following of a false religion, but because of their personal faith in God and because of their good conscience or because of their selfless acts performed under test of their faith. It is of course possible for a false religion to help one of its adherents to keep faith in God, and likewise it is possible for a false religion to destroy the faith of its adherents in God. Normally a false religion will manipulate its adherents into having faith in the religion or its leaders, rather than in God.

So the sons of the FRC are in fact sons of faith in God as demonstrated by their works that obey their particular conscience. For our consciences are our inbuilt self testing mechanisms from God. 

Incidentally we shall see later due to the wording of the first abrahamic covenant, that anyone who changes religion because they are sincerely searching for God, is a son of the 1AC, even if they change from one false religion to the next, or even if they change from a true religion to a false religion! The effort to leave the religion of your father, your family, you community or your country and to go to the land, the religious administration, that you sincerely believe God to be showing you, makes you a son of Abraham by faith even if God was actually trying to show you another land altogether! 

To discover the 3 Master Mediators of the FRC, CRC and ARC using the Successive Designations Principle of the bible code - see U9.

When did Methuselah Die?

We know from the chronology of Genesis that he died in 2371, the same year that the flood began. He was not unrighteous, he was non adamic. He died sacrificially. He was not killed by the flood. So bascially it looks like God was waiting for the sacrificial death of Methuselah before he brought about the flood. The book of Enoch puts his death as 7 days before the flood i.e. 2371Heshvan10 (and has his wife's name as Edna). So his death triggered the flood and he was the master mediator of the Priesthood water baptism covenant, the CRC - how appropriate!

The 2 Blessing Mediators

Everyone alive today is a genetic descendant of Adam. And everyone alive today is a genetic descendant of Noah. These two are the only two universal genetic fathers of the entire human race. The one by a divine act of creation and the other by a divine act of destruction. But God uses genetic descent to prefigure baptism and salvation covenant descent. So there must be a greater way in which these two are our universal fathers by covenant and through baptism. But universal covenant fathers are Blessing Mediators. The Blessing Mediators covenant with Master Mediators to pass on the blessings of the 3 Master Covenants, the FRC, the CRC and the ARC to mankind. So Adam and Noah are our two Blessings Mediators of the 3 Blessings covenants the FBC, CBC and ABC.

We have seen above that Michael's everlasting angelic spirit ransomed Adam's associated angel. So Adam is the Blessing Mediator of the ABC, the one who passes the blessing of everlasting angelic life from Michael on to his covenanted sons.

Adam likewise has to be the blessing mediator of either the FRC or the CRC for if not then he cannot get a human body in the kingdom of God since fathers did not join covenants mediated by sons in the patriarch pre-flood system. 

Now Noah, was the father of the world through a deluge of water. So he is the obvious candidate for the blessing mediator of the CRC, the covenant entered through completing a water baptism, the sealing covenant for every true church. For Noah and his family were the only ones to survive the water baptism of the entire human race that occurred in 2370 BC. Noah's ark symbolises the CRC. Further Noah is the first character in the bible who is said to preach righteousness, the job of the true church...

5 and he did not hold back from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with 7 others when he brought a deluge upon a world of ungodly people (2 Peter 2).

So Noah is the blessing mediator of the CBC, the covenant immediately inferior to the CRC, the sealing covenant for the true churches and therefore Adam is the blessing mediator of the FBC, the covenant immediately inferior to the FRC, the sealing covenant for those with faith.

The 8 System Mediators

To find out who were the system mediators for the peri-flood system we examine all of the scriptures which describe Jehovah as being the God of someone or some group. Any person to whom God is described in scripture as being the God of him, has a covenant with God. Jehovah, the God of Shem is a Euphemism for: God has made a covenant with Shem.

26 Blessed be Jehovah, God of Shem (Genesis 9).

18 Jehovah the God of the Hebrews [Not the God of Eber. But the God of the sons of Eber] (Exodus 3).

25 And to Eber there were 2 sons born. The name of the one was Peleg, because in his days the earth was divided; and the name of his brother was Joktan. (Genesis 10 NWT)

19 And to Eber 2 sons were born. The name of the one was Peleg, because in his days the earth was divided; and the name of his brother was Joktan. (1 Chronicles 1 NWT)

The earth was divided at Babel into the languages during the days of Peleg. And the church, the earth, was divided, i.e. separated out by baptising people into the first church testing covenant the Peleg Church Covenant!

53 [the] God of Abraham and [the] God of Nahor [Abraham's brother], may they judge [polite plural - Jehovah forms no judging union with any other God prior to Jesus] between us, the God [singular] of their father [Terah, so Nahor is Abraham's brother not his Grandad], judge between us (Genesis 31)

The city of Nahor [Abraham's brother] was a true worshipping city, because Isaac took his wife Rebekah from that city at God's command...

10 So the servant took ten camels from the camels of his master and  proceeded to go with every sort of good thing of his master's in his hand. Then he rose and got on his way to Mesopotamia to the city of Nahor (Genesis 24).

50 Then Laban [Rebekah's brother] and Bethuel [Rebekah's father, the son of Nahor, Abraham's brother] answered and said: From Jehovah this thing has issued. We are unable to speak bad or good to you.
51 Here is Rebekah before you. Take her and go, and let her become a wife to the son of your master, just as Jehovah has spoken (Genesis 24).

Although Abraham, Nahor and Terah, having come from Ur of the Chaldeans, did not worship the true God at first...

2 And he said Joshua, to all of the people: This, he says, Jehovah, God of Israel: At beyond the river they lived, fathers of you [polite plural - not all of Abraham's forefather's were false worshippers initially] at long ago, Terah, father of Abraham and father of Nahor, and they worshipped Gods, other ones.
3 But I took, namely father of you, namely Abraham, from beyond the river and I lead him through all of land of Canaan and I made many namely descendant of him and I gave to him namely Isaac (Joshua 24). 

Nahor is Hebrew means 'snorter', i.e. A quick outpouring of the breath or spirit of life! So he mediates a spirit covenant. He is the peri-flood system mediator of the ARC.

5 In order that, to quote him, they may believe that Jehovah the God of their forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, has appeared to you (Exodus 4).

So the salvation triumvirate for the peri-flood system was Shem, Peleg and Nahor. Shem was the Abraham of the peri-flood system. Peleg was the Isaac (the son of the Patriarch), and Nahor was the Jacob.

As a further confirmation, another euphemism for having a covenant with God is 'walking with God'. Here are the people who the bible describes as: Walking with God.

22 And after his fathering Methuselah Enoch went on walking with the [true] God three hundred years. Meanwhile he became father to sons and daughters.
23 So all the days of Enoch amounted to three hundred and sixty-five years.
24 And Enoch kept walking with the [true] God. Then he was no more, for God took him (Genesis 5).

9 This is the history of Noah. Noah was a righteous man. He proved himself faultless among his contemporaries. Noah walked with the [true] God (Genesis 6).

15 And he proceeded to bless Joseph and to say: The [true] God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, the [true] God who has been shepherding me during all my existence until this day (Genesis 48).

25 And now, O Jehovah the God of Israel, keep toward your servant David my father that which you promised him, saying: There will not be cut off a man of yours from before me to sit upon the throne of Israel if only your sons will take care of their way by walking before me just as you have walked before me (1 Kings 8).

So again all of these men, Noah, Enoch, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and David who are said to have 'walked with God' had covenants with God. Indeed this was why God went for a stroll with them. 

So now we need a salvation triumvirate for the pre-flood system since those who lived then could not just jump into a blessing covenant without a baptism and a test. And the 3 system mediators of the pre-flood system must all be forefathers of Jacob as we saw above. 

Both Abel and his sacrifice found favour with God. 

4 But as for Abel, he too brought some firstlings [plural] of his flock, even their fatty pieces. Now while Jehovah was looking with favour upon Abel and his offering (Genesis 4).

By faith Abel pleased God so as to be declared righteous. 

4 By faith Abel offered God a sacrifice of greater worth than Cain, through which [faith] he had witness borne to him that he was righteous, God bearing witness respecting his gifts; and through it he, although he died, yet speaks (Hebrews 11).

Since he was declared righteous by faith, he must have passed a baptism test. So Abel must have entered the FRC just before he died so must have been in a faith system covenant prior to giving his sacrifice. But faith system covenants such as the 1AC are mediated by the first one in that system with faith. So he is the only person who could have mediated that covenant, since Adam could not mediate a covenant with himself and since Cain was certainly not mediating any covenant of faith, and Abel was the secondborn. Also his blood cried out from the ground and spoke...

10 At this he said: What have you done? Listen! Your brother's blood is crying out to me from the ground.
11 And now you are cursed in banishment from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood at your hand. (Genesis 4 NWT).

24 and Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and the blood of sprinkling, which speaks in a better way than Abel's [blood]. (Hebrews 12 NWT).

The blood of the new New Covenant speaks in a better way than the blood of Abel's covenant. For he was the first mediator of a salvation covenant to be sacrificed.

But Abel offered firstlings [plural] of the flock. So he was sacrificing with respect to a plurality of covenants. Now the CBC was not made until after Noah was born since he mediated it. Therefore Abel could not have been in the system covenant of the CRC. Therefore he must have been in a system covenant of the ARC as well as being in the AFC (Abelian Faith Covenant), the system covenant of the FRC. It does not matter that Jared who was Melchizedek's first manifestation, who mediated the FRC, was not born when Abel died. There will always be a faith covenant in any system with Jehovah as its God. So Abel got System Covenant of faith before the Master Covenant of faith was made. But who mediated the pre-flood system covenant of the ARC?

Well there are no pre-flood patriarchs who are euphemistically called covenanters with God by virtue of God being described as being theirs as in the cases of Shem, Peleg and Nahor. But we do know that Michael who was the validation sacrifice for the ARC also mediated the 1NC a subcovenant of the ARC in the system in which he died. So by symmetry, Gabriel in Methuselah, the validation sacrifice of the CRC, should have mediated a subcovenant of the CRC in the system in which he died, the pre-flood system. But against this we have the fact that no one was saved in the ark other than Noah's family and that Methuselah died in 2371 the year of the flood, which indicates that the CRC related to the peri-flood system and not the pre-flood system. Also Aaron spattered blood 7x before the curtain of Jesus' flesh not 8x, so there were 7 validation sacrifices before Jesus died in validation of the 1AC not 8. So Methuselah did not mediate a pre-flood system covenant of the CRC.

We now need one more preflood system mediator for the ARC. Well consider please the scripture...

25 And Adam proceeded to have intercourse again with his wife and so she gave birth to a son and called his name Seth, because, as she said: God has appointed another seed in place of Abel, because Cain killed him.
26 And to Seth also there was born a son and he proceeded to call his name Enosh. At that time a start was made of calling on the name of Jehovah (Genesis 4).

Well Abel had a covenant, and if Seth is to replace Abel in a greater sense, then perhaps he has one too! Certainly he supplanted him as Jacob did with Esau.

So we now have our 2 pre-flood system mediators: Abel, and Seth, (Enoch cannot have mediated any pre-flood covenant since mediators must die but he was transferred so as not to see death in that system. He was possessed by Michael the mediator of the ARC however, hence he walked with God when so possessed)...

5 By faith Enoch was transferred so as not to see death, and he was nowhere to be found because God had transferred him; for before his transference he had the witness that he had pleased God well (Hebrews 11).

And all salvation covenant mediators have to furnish their death to God....

17 For a covenant is valid over dead [victims], since it is not in force at any time while the [human] covenanter is living (Hebrews 9).

Here then is a table summarizing our 8 system mediators...

Master Covenant FRC CRC ARC 
Pre flood System Mediators Abel (AFC) n/a Seth (SAC)
Peri flood System Mediators Shem (SFC) Peleg (PCC) Nahor (NAC)
Post flood System Mediators Abraham (1AC) Isaac (ICC) Jacob (JAC)

In the pre-flood system the order of the mediators is Faith, Spirit, Water, rather than Faith, Water, Spirit even as the 3 non adamic master mediators came in the order Melchizedek, Michael, Gabriel in the pre flood system in Jared, Enoch, Methuselah respectively, rather than in the order Melchizedek, Gabriel, Michael, which is the order the appear in the post flood systems.

Fatherhood

Before Adam died, he had an indefinitely lasting human soul and an associated angelic soul, since he was an uncondemned son of God. He lost both of these when he sinned. He therefore lost the right to pass these souls to his kids through procreation. Michael ransomed Adam's angelic soul, and Melchizedek (in Jared) ransomed his indefinitely lasting human soul. Gabriel (in Methuselah) ransomed Noah's long lasting human soul. By Michael giving his angelic soul in death to God, he then liberated and actually purchased Adam's angelic soul from God. In any event this procedure gave Michael the right to father angelic sons to Adam, the right that Adam had lost. But since it was a ransom of Adam, it was Adam's re-instatement as an angelic father. So Jesus effectively gave Adam his angelic fatherhood rights back and reclaimed the angelic procreative capability that Adam had lost in the second death (the angelic death). This was done through the AAC.

But Jesus himself, as regards his genetic makeup was in fact Adam's edenic son. He was Adam's non adamic son, this is why he is called: The son of the man, in the Greek Scriptures. He is nowhere called the son of man, he is always called the son of the man. And Adam was the man - see I5

Gabriel on the other hand, by giving the non adamic human soul of Methuselah (with Gabriel in it at the time), took Noah's human soul as a possession, 'as his own'. He then became Noah's human soul father and purchased the rights to father Edenic human souls to Adam's sons, the other right that Adam had lost. 

Melchizedek, by giving the non adamic human soul of Jared as a ransom for Adam's human soul took the indefinitely living human fatherhood rights that Adam had, and re-instated him as a human father. So Melchizedek effectively gave Adam back his edenic non ageing human fatherhood rights and reclaimed the human procreative capability that Adam lost in the first death (the human death).

Incidentally, pre-adamics could take advantage of the FRC or the ARC but not the CRC which came too late for them. For the sons of the FRC and the ARC are not the genetic sons of Adam, but the covenant sons of Adam, those who have the composition of character required by the covenants, not the composition of genes resulting from Adam. The pre-adamics do not need to be ransomed to be saved, they have the right to be raptured as angels when they finish their earthly course. But they might wish also to enter into the Kingdom of God, through the FRC or to have everlasting life through the ARC and who wouldn't?

So in the Kingdom of God, our edenic human bodies are thanks to Melchizedek in Jared or Gabriel in Methuselah and our angelic bodies are thanks to Michael, and the whole exercise is thanks to our brilliant God, Jehovah. A God whose mercy is a matter of heavenly legislation. Wouldst that we had such legislation in this system, but there again it has a different God, so we have cruelty as a matter of legislation instead. But what is worse is that those politicians who reflect their father Satan keep appearing as angels of light as Satan does. 

14 And no wonder, for Satan himself keeps transforming himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians).

They represent that their cruelty is kindness, that their cowardice is courage, that their indecision is decisiveness, that their immorality reflects our moral values and that their abuse of detainees to whom they refuse legal representation is 'bringing them to justice'. Whereas of course, since they are refused legal representation and are tortured, it is bringing them to injustice and abuse. 

Michael died as an angel in Jesus, going first to Tartarus, the angelic prison, where those angels who sinned in the days of Noah await the judgement either of Gehenna or of release. 

18 Why, even Christ died once for all time concerning sins, a righteous [person] for unrighteous ones, that he might lead you to God, he being put to death in the flesh, but being made alive in the spirit.
19 In this [state] also he went his way and preached to the spirits in prison [in Tartarus, a prison not a death],
20 who had once been disobedient when the patience of God was waiting in Noah's days, while the ark was being constructed (1 Peter 3).

Gabriel did not die as an angel but died as a human in Methuselah, Gabriel's spirit was preserved without being sent to Tartarus. It was simply transferred into his angelic vehicle, his angelic soul, when the human soul of Methuselah expired. 

So God covenanted with Michael first, when Satan sinned, and then later with Melchizedek and finally with Gabriel. God covenants with the Angelic Master Mediator (Michael, Gabriel, Melchizedek) who then covenants with the human blessing mediator (Adam and Noah) who then covenants with the various system mediators (Abel, Seth), (Shem, Peleg, Nahor), (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) who then covenants with a submediator (Moses, John the Baptist, Jesus, Paul, Russell, Gordon, Jesus, MZ) who then covenants with mankind. 

This arrangement of covenants reflects the role of Jesus/Michael and of the two other master mediators, making the three Cherubs. Seeing this clearly, Jesus made an agreement at the time of Adam's sin with God that he would give his soul as a ransoming sacrifice, actually his everliving angelic soul. This was the basis of all of God's legal dealings with mankind thereafter. This was 'The Covenant', and his angelic soul is 'The Ark'. Had Jesus not made this agreement with God, then God would have been unable to make any agreement with us at all, because none of us would ever have had the capability of being his sons, because God's sons are angelic. God could not have lifted the death penalty on any of us in the absence of the ARC.

So all mediators between God and men are made possible by Jesus' master mediation which was of the agreement, the covenant, that he made to come here and die for us, the ARC. It is all thanks to Jesus, the entire legal plan from God rests squarely upon his shoulders. And just as all sacrifices under the law of Moses pointed forward to his sacrifice, so all mediators of all covenants between God and his people point backwards to Jesus' agreement to mediate for all of us. He stepped in to save us from the murderous intentions of Satan at short notice when we needed him. And we still do need him. It's like the scripture says:

24 Then he favors him and says, Let him off from going down into the pit! I have found a ransom!...
29 Look! All these things God performs, 2 times, 3 times, in the case of an able-bodied man [so there are 3 ransoms for man] (Job 33)

These words were spoken by Elihu, Job's friend, who said that God favors man and says the above. But we deduce that this is in fact what God said when Jesus agreed to give his soul for us. And below is what Jesus said when God asked the angels who would do this for mankind:

8 And I began to hear the voice of Jehovah saying: Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? And I proceeded to say: Here I am! Send me.
9 And he went on to say: Go, and you must say to this people, Hear again and again, O men, but do not understand; and see again and again, but do not get any knowledge. 
10
Make the heart of this people unreceptive, and make their very ears unresponsive, and paste their very eyes together, that they may not see with their eyes and with their ears they may not hear, and that their own heart may not understand and that they may not actually turn back and get healing for themselves (Isaiah 6).

Isaiah is speaking as Jesus here. Jesus said: Here I am send me, to God. And when he came to visit us he quoted the rest of the scripture as prophesied (He quoted it in Greek, translated from Hebrew, and so the English translation of the Hebrew of Isaiah is not precisely the same as the English translation of the Greek translation of the Hebrew spoken by Jesus as recorded by Matthew!)

14 And toward them the prophecy of Isaiah is having fulfillment, which says: By hearing, you will hear but by no means get the sense of it; and, looking, you will look but by no means see. 
15
For the heart of this people has grown unreceptive, and with their ears they have heard without response, and they have shut their eyes; that they might never see with their eyes and hear with their ears and get the sense of it with their hearts and turn back, and I heal them (Matthew 13).

So when Jesus' parable states:

34 Then the king will say to those on his right, Come, you who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the founding of the world (Matthew 25).

The preparation was his agreement to give his soul as a ransom, made at the founding of the world, which was Adam's sin. The apostle John says in Revelation, referring to the wild beast, which is the United Nations:

8 And all those who dwell on the earth will worship it; the name of not one of them stands written in the scroll of life of the Lamb who was slaughtered, from the founding of the world (Revelation 13).

The lamb, Jesus, was slaughtered a long time after the founding of the world, but the agreement for his slaughter was part of that founding. The scroll of life was started at the founding of the world, which also was the beginning of death for Adam and his sons. Obviously a scroll of life is unnecessary before death becomes an issue. And this scroll was dependant on Jesus' agreement to ransom Adam. As St Paul says:

21 For since death is through a man, resurrection of the dead is also through a man.
22 For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive (1 Corinthians 15).

Moses is a typical example of how God deals with his people. When the sons of Israel agreed to obey the 10 commandments and the Law of Moses, God did not covenant directly with the sons of Israel, he covenanted with Moses, who covenanted with the sons of Israel. We are all made alive in Jesus, because all three covenants are part of the same redemption process. You may start with the FRC or the CRC, but either you end up in the ARC or you end up in Gehenna (for a long time).

List of the 24 Salvation Covenants 

In the next section I29, we look at the 3 covenant promises (2AC, 3AC, IAC), the 3 salvation covenants (1AC, ICC, JAC) and 3 land promise and circumcision covenants (LCC, ILCC, JLCC) given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But here for the sake of completeness (as far as we presently know the plan) we list all the 24 Salvation Covenants, which we understand make up the entire plan of God for the salvation of mankind from Adam to Armageddon.

8 I am the Alpha and the Omega, says the Lord God, the One who is and who was and who is coming, the Almighty (Revelation 1).

There are 24 letters in the Greek alphabet starting with Alpha and ending with Omega. A letter for a covenant with God. Jesus mediates the first one, the Angelic Ransom Covenant (ARC) and the last one, the Ark Rapture Covenant (WARC)

God's official people always have a covenant with God for Jehovah does nothing without the proper legal framework. The circumcision covenant defined God's official people in the day from Abraham to Cornelius. So eavh of the 4 true Christains churches, since they define God's official Christian people, likewise have a covenant. We call these the 4 Elijah covenants, EC1, EC2, EC3, EC4.

Abraham's Prophetic Sacrifice of Genesis 15

9 In turn he said to him: Take for me a 3-year-old heifer [female cow] and a 3-year-old she-goat and a 3-year-old ram and a turtledove and a young pigeon.
10
So he took all these to himself and cut them in 2 and put each part of them so as to match the other, but the birds he did not cut in pieces.
11
And the birds of prey began to descend upon the carcasses, but Abram kept driving them away.
12
After a while the sun was about to set, and a deep sleep fell upon Abram, and, look! a frightfully great darkness was falling upon him.
13
And he began to say to Abram: You may know for sure that your seed will become an alien resident in a land not theirs, and they will have to serve them, and these will certainly afflict them for 400 years.
14
But the nation that they will serve I am judging, and after that they will go out with many goods.
15
As for you, you will go to your forefathers in peace; you will be buried at a good old age.
16
But in the 4th generation they will return here, because the error of the Amorites has not yet come to completion.
17
The sun was now setting and a dense darkness came and, look! a smoking furnace and a fiery torch that passed in between these pieces (Genesis 15).

In the literal meaning these sacrifices relate to the Land and Circumcision Covenant by which the sons of Abraham inherited the promised land from the Nile to the Euphrates. But in the symbolic meaning this relates to the sons of Melchizedek through the FRC inheriting the Kingdom of God from 2008 to 3008. The 3 year old heifer is the 3 system covenants of the CRC. The 3 year old she-goat is the 3 system covenants of the FRC, the 3 year old ram is the 3 system covenants of the ARC. The FRC and the CRC are subordinate to the ARC, in that one has to go through the entire process and end up in the ARC in order to get everlasting life. The process starts with the FRC and ends with the ARC. The FRC prepares for the CRC which prepares for the ARC. The torch is the illumination of the preaching of the validation sacrifices, Melchizedek, Gabriel and Michael. The fiery furnace is the sealing after testing by fire that these covenants lead to if you do not break them. The birds of prey are the demons, who try to pick people out of the carcasses. So this sacrifice shows us that there are 3 system covenants (a system for a year) for each of the 3 Master Salvation covenants as we deduced above. The turtle dove is the firstborn rapture covenant for the water baptised and the pigeon, the slightly less white bird, is the secondborn rapture covenant for the sons of the 1AC at Armageddon.

And now we appear to have discovered 3 more Midst prophecies in addition to Jesus dying in the midst of the 1AC - see U101. These sacrifices appear to tell us that the illumination and validation of the FRC, CRC and ARC happened exactly in the middle of them in some way.

Naaman bathing 7 times in the Jordan

9 So Naaman came with his horses and his war chariots and stood at the entrance of the house of Elisha.
10
However, Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying: Going there, you must bathe 7 times in the Jordan that your flesh may come back to you; and be clean.
11
At this Naaman grew indignant and began to go away and say: Here I had said [to myself], 'To me he will come out all the way and will certainly stand and call upon the name of Jehovah his God and move his hand to and fro over the place and actually give the leper recovery.'
12
Are not the Abanah and the Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Can I not bathe in them and certainly be clean? With that he turned and went away in a rage.
13
His servants now approached and spoke to him and said: My father, had it been a great thing that the prophet himself had spoken to you, would you not do it? How much more, then, since he said to you, 'Bathe and be clean'?
14
At that he went down and began to plunge into the Jordan 7 times according to the word of the man of the [true] God; after which his flesh came back like the flesh of a little boy and he became clean.
15
Then he went back to the man of the [true] God, he with all his camp, and came and stood before him and said: Here, now, I certainly know that there is no God anywhere in the earth but in Israel. And now accept, please, a blessing gift from your servant.
16
However, he said: As Jehovah before whom I do stand is living, I will not accept it. And he began to urge him to accept it, but he kept refusing.
17
Finally Naaman said: If not, please, let there be given to your servant some ground, the load of a pair of mules; because your servant will no more render up a burnt offering or a sacrifice to any other gods but to Jehovah (2 Kings 5).

Naaman was baptised into the ICC by Elisha. The 7 times are the 7 water baptisms under the CRC, these are the baptisms into the PCC, the ICC, the Law of Moses, the 1EC, the 2EC, the 3EC and the 4EC.

Michael and Everlasting Life and Tartarus

Satan who was the mediator of the first holy spirit covenant, sinned with Adam and broke that covenant and not only condemned all of mankind into the first and second death, but also denied any angel the capability of attaining everlasting life through the first holy spirit covenant. God then gave everlasting life to Michael in return for his agreeing to ransom mankind and to die as an angel on the stake. Michael was then able to give his everlasting life both to angels and to men. Hence we read that Gabriel inside John said to Michael inside Jesus...

13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, in order to be baptized by him.
14 But the latter tried to prevent him, saying: I am the one needing to be baptized by you, and are you coming to me?
15 In reply Jesus said to him: Let it be, this time, for in that way it is suitable for us to carry out all that is righteous. Then
he quit preventing him (Matthew 3).

Gabriel needed a baptism from Michael. And therefore Gabriel did not have everlasting life, whereas Michael did.

14 how much more will the blood of the Christ, who through an everlasting spirit offered himself without blemish to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works that we may render sacred service to [the] living God? (Hebrew 9).

So only Michael had everlasting life up until his death. After his death angels and men could gain everlasting life through a covenant which passed on Michael's ransom to them. An angel could be a party to the ARC, because you do not have to be a genetic son of Abraham to be saved by the 1AC. So likewise you do not have to be human to have Adam as an angelic father of the ABC.

4 Certainly if God did not hold back from punishing the angels that sinned, but, by throwing them into Tartarus, delivered them to pits of dense darkness to be reserved for judgment [of Gehenna or release];
5 and he did not hold back from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with seven others when he brought a deluge upon a world of ungodly people [at the same time that the angels went into Tartarus] (2 Peter 2).

18 Why, even Christ died once for all time concerning sins, a righteous [person] for unrighteous ones, that he might lead you to God, he being put to death in the flesh, but being made alive in the spirit.
19 In this [state] also he went his way and preached to the spirits in prison [in Tartarus, a prison not a death],
20 who had once been disobedient when the patience of God was waiting in Noah's days, while the ark was being constructed (1 Peter 3).

Tartarus is the holding pen for angels who are not permitted to interfere either in heaven or on earth until they are either thrown into Gehenna or released depending upon their response to the preaching of the Christ. But Gehenna could not come into existence until there was a means to leave it. That means was Michael's ransom.

The demons that were in Tartarus had angelic souls but had limited access to heaven and none to earth one imagines. It is a punishment that is lesser than Gehenna. There may therefore be an earthly Tartarus in the Kingdom. Such a place would simply be a fairly normal prison. Sealed saints who cannot go to Gehenna, which is the second death, could perhaps spend a stretch in the earthly Tartarus, doing kingdom porridge. Tartarus is more like an open prison one presumes, whereas Gehenna is maximum security. It is a soul-less place.

David’s Happy Men

7 Happy are those whose lawless deeds have been pardoned, and whose sins have been covered. 
8 Happy is the man whose sin Jehovah will by no means take into account (Romans 4).

1 Happy is the one whose revolt is pardoned, whose sin is covered. 
2 Happy is the man to whose account Jehovah does not put error, and in whose spirit there is no deceit (Psalm 32).

The first man is happy because he is clean in the flesh, his dead works of the past are forgiven, his sins that he has already physically committed are wiped out. The second man is happy because all his sins in the past and for an indefinite period in the future are forgiven and pre-forgiven, for God has given him a clean conscience, so that he has no consciousness of sin. Paul explains this cryptically:

4 For I am not conscious of anything against myself. Yet by this I am not proved righteous, but he that examines me is Jehovah (1 Corinthians 4).

The literal meaning was that Paul was not aware of any sin which he had committed which would be sufficiently grave that there should be an accusation brought against him which would have disqualified him from being an elder. He did not mean that he was a sinless man. For he himself admits:

19 For the good that I wish, I do not do, but the bad that I do not wish is what I practice (Romans 7).

But cryptically and unwittingly, for these words are inspired, Paul is saying that the one who is washed clean in the blood of Jesus has a clean conscience, actually from all sin, for he knows that although he does sin, Jehovah has already discounted this in his case. However this does not mean that he will be declared righteous, which is the baptism into the name of the holy spirit, for this is his sealing, and he may never progress to this point if he loses faith whilst under test, like Adam did. If he does keep his faith however, then he will be sealed, which is the permanent forgiveness of all future sin. This is the love of God, for he is saying to such a man: OK, I am taking you on, and I will never expel you from my school, and in my school you will have your spirit trained and trained until you become a sinless man as was the Christ, until you have the Christ-like character with your own peculiar personality of course. Furthermore however long it takes in your case, that is how long I will continue the training for you. That is true love.
