In the lesson titled, ‘Introduction to The Lake of Fire’, I pointed out that sunlight is unable to penetrate the Sea at depths below 666 ft.  According to research, the Sea/Ocean is divided into several regions

  • Epipelagic: Surface, down to 650 ft.
    • Epi: means close to the top
    • Pelagic means Open Sea
    • Mesopelagic: 651 ft., down to 3300 ft.
      • Meso means middle
      • Bathypelagic: 3301 ft, down to 13000 ft.
        • Bathy means deep/midnight zone
        • Abyssopelagic: 13001 ft, down to the Sea floor
          • Abyss means A deep or seemingly bottomless chasm

In order for a spiritual Sea creature to reach above 666 ft. and gain access to the rays of the Sun; thereby, allowing the Sea creature to begin the transformation process of becoming a Kingdom Seeker, the individual must reach salvation depth (above 666 ft.) and grab hold of the lure of Seeking First The Kingdom of God.  Doing so results in the Kingdom Seeker entering into the spiritual decompression chamber/chrysalis of a Deep-Sea diving submersible vehicle; whereby, the Kingdom Seeker will enter into the environment that will allow for proper understanding of the moments lived in the World, and gain access to the information needed to become an Adopted Son/Daughter of The Father.

As was taught in the previous lesson, spiritually speaking, the River of The Water of Life is made up of Hydroxyl, due to its singular possibility for Eternal Life and its spiritual cleansing properties.  In order to withstand the process that allows the transformation to receive the value of The River of The Water of Life, I will review the article titled, ‘Pressure in the Deep Sea’  (http://www.amnh.org/education/resources/rfl/web/dsv/pressures.html) and relate how this story assists in understanding how this transition is possible.

Physically, the ALVIN Deep Sea submersible scientific craft is a spiritual proample of how children of God (the immature reality of possessing only the Image Yod) become Sons of The Father (the mature reality of possessing the Image AND Likeness Yod).  Specifically designed to withstand various external pressures of the sea, while simultaneously maintaining proper internal pressure, the ALVIN is designed for only a few occupants.  This allows for observance and understanding of what is seen  while in the sea, but also to provide the optimal conditions possible for the crew to do so.  In Kingdom Seeking, the Kingdom Seeker is paired with their Adonai (individual Holy Spirit), who assists in leading and guiding the Kingdom Seeker to the surface of the water, and on to land.  The individual Adonai also aids in the observance and understanding regarding the properiences that took place at each level of life prior to, and including Kingdom Seeking. 

On the ascent out of the Sea, the Kingdom Seeker primarily observes and learns from the properiences in order to under the nature of the Sea(thought processes that govern the World); thereby, learning Dominion principles, as well as gain access to the Knowledge of The Father.  During the course of this transition, the Kingdom Seeker, who is no longer directly connected to the World, but still in it, handles the various personal responsibilities that were undertaken prior to Kingdom Seeking, based upon what is learned and whatever remains from World-based gains.  For instance, the results of the Re-Order of life due to Kingdom Seeking, may result in the Kingdom Seeker not possessing the same level of money, mobility, influence, etc.,; however, based on the understanding that the story is completed and the Kingdom Seeker is being led along the path that leads to The Kingdom of Heaven, the Kingdom Seeker will respond differently to the relative ‘lack’ of each arising situation.  If money is lacking, assistance from loved ones will be available…not to the extent that allows for continuation as was previous, but enough to continue moving and learning.  A Kingdom Seeker learns to be patient and positive and practices the art of learning to allow the story to dictate what should be done and not the situation and/or those in it.  If mobility is lacking, it provides the opportunity to ‘Be still’ and hear and see what The Father is doing.  If influence decreases, it provides the opportunity to ceases talking and begin learning.  Based on my properience, most past moments from growing up in the World have already prepared the Kingdom Seeker for how to deal with these transition situations.

  • Due to the relative size of the Deep-Sea submersible vehicle, each person must individually Kingdom Seek in order to gain access to their individual Adonai, who assist in co-piloting the Kingdom Seeker regarding their specific properiences.  What is learned individually may not directly reflect what is learned by the spouse, family, or friends.  This is due to the fact that they too must undergo the same transition, that once undertook, will eventually reflect Kingdom similarities as was learned during your Kingdom Seeking process.  This is where Agape Love comes in, as the Kingdom Seeker has learned to understand the process of spiritual maturity and is able to recognize where another is at in their process, identifies those around them as having not begun the process, somewhere in the middle/finishing up, or recognizing that someone has undergone a spiritual paramecium-to-phytoplankton type transformation.

In the previous lesson, I introduced the topic of Deep Sea Vents.  The article titled, Pressure in the Deep Seas’ talk about Deep Sea hydrothermal vents located at about 2500 meters (located in the Bathypelagic region). At that depth is where the researcher stated that the pressure felt at that level would be like an elephant standing on a person’s toe.  And while that pressure is far too much for a regular deep sea diver to endure, the balanced environment of deep-sea submersibles allow researchers to observe what type of creatures thrive in such an environment.

By comparing The Deep Sea – Survival Beneath The Surface (http://www.pbs.org/wnet/savageseas/deep-article.html) and Pressure in the Deep Seas articles, I was able to identify the type of activity that occurs at such deep levels and in such hostile conditions.  Strange looking sea creatures (formed due to the lack of light) reside near the hydrothermal vents and consume the nutrition that is produced from the blasts of the Deep Sea vents; thereby, allowing the creatures to have access to energy that causes them to be able to adapt and thrive in what seems like an impossible location.

Spiritually, this appears as an INVERSION of the environment found around The Throne of The Father. 

  • Revelation 4:6-8 Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:“‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,’who was, and is, and is to come.”
    • Few people, if any, can say that the sight of these 4 creatures, with six wings and covered in eyes, would not be categorized as ‘strange’.  However, similar to the nature of the Deep Sea vents, these creatures are found at the center of the environment where all life originates.  And while the nature of the Deep Sea vents appears to be negative in nature (given its lack of light and high levels of pressure), the Creatures found around The Throne are purely positive in nature (given their access to light and the absence of pressure).  Nonetheless, both types of creatures are sustained due to their closeness to what appears to be an impossible environment, yet each type of creature aids in assisting the growth of those who are not near the environment they consider calm.

Learning to identify the nature of the environment is vital to understanding the factors that govern the environment; thereby, leading to successful interaction with the environment.  Kingdom Seekers who identify with non-Kingdom Seeking family members/friends (specifically, their thought process), creates disorientation during the transition process.  While in the Sea, it is easy to lose track of which way is up.  Going further down in darkness can create the sensation of going up, which is actually the wrong way.  Reaching salvation depth (above 666 ft.) occurs because the Kingdom Seeker has begun to ‘break away’ from old thought processes and is being ‘transformed by the renewing of the mind’; as the result, the salvage vehicle that goes to the surface doesn’t carry family members and/or friends.  Each person must make their own individual choice.

The external environment, for those in the World who are trying to get back to The Father, is truly the environment of The Father’s Image and Likeness (Peace and Grace).  In order to reconnect back to The Father, the internal forces of the Kingdom Seeker are to reflect the external environment.  Wanting to truly and sincerely reconnect back to The Father leads to and begins the Kingdom Seeking process.  In Seeking First The Kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33), each person gains access to the part of The Father that is specific to them.  This is gaining access to The Kingdom of God (who you are and what you are to know, regarding the overall plan of The Father).  This begins to balance the external environment of Peace and the internal force of Grace (The Father’s Likeness).  By understanding the meaning of Jeremiah 1:5 and Psalm 139:16 (among others), you begin to activate your internal Grace (ability to begin forgiving others for what you believe they have done to you, which leads to you being able to forgive yourself).  This, along with detachment from World-based family/friends and their thought processes, develops the understanding of The Path of Righteousness that The Father is leading you along.  This increase in internal Grace ultimately balances out with the external environment of Peace that was always there; thereby, beginning the journey of increasing your internal Peace.

As internal Peace is learned (Patience, Positivity, Practice of both), it allows for an understanding of the ways and thoughts of the World/the Heavens and sets forth the true value of what is important: Faith.  This also reveals the artificial values (gravity) that supports the World.  Continued practice of internal Peace, while in the salvage/chrysalis environment, brings each Kingdom Seeker in balance with The Father’s Will (external Grace), which results in The Kingdom of Heaven.  As the result, the internal forces of personally practiced Grace and Peace of the physical Kingdom Seeker (learned by blending the understandings gained while in the World, with that which is learned during the Kingdom Seeking process) aligns and becomes in harmony with the external forces of The Spirit of The Father (Peace and Grace; Image and Likenss).

  • Peace: at ease; rest…no pressure, no stress
  • Grace: The Father is doing the writing (His Will); NO JUDGMENT…we must allow His Grace
    • Allowing: to let do…to permit; to ‘Let Go and Let [The Father]’, knowing that it is already purely positively written and completed for our lives
      • Minimizing who we think we are and can do (World view), for what The Father says we are and can do (Kingdom view), by learning during the salvaging/chrysalis process.
        • Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the form of [The Father], thought it not robbery to be equal with [The Father]:
  • Allowing: Agape Love

In the Beginning, The Father gave His Image, but Likeness required being sought after to be received; thereby, showing true love for and to The Father.  The Father’s Will is what directs life while we are in the World, but if a person takes ownership of their properiences (seeking after their own will), Kingdom Seeking will not occur.  By seeking after The Father’s Will and no longer their own, Kingdom Seekers learn to use the ‘fertilizer’ properiences gained while in the World, to understand The Knowledge of The Father as a result of reconnecting to The Father’s Likeness (Path of Righteousness).  While the personal free will thoughts of each person is limited while in the World, the combination of The Path of Righteousness and The Father’s Will results in the unlimited growth of The Kingdom of Heaven.  The comparison of such is like that of the size of the tree that grows from a seed, to that of the size of the shell that initially housed the seed.

A good way to remember the basic thought process of a Kingdom Seeker is this:

  • Always Allow The Father’s Will [Grace]; For thine is The Kingdom
  • Be the Reflection of The Father’s Will [Agape Love]; The Power
  • Certain of The Father’s Will [Peace]; The Glory

**Always allow Being the reflection of the Certainty of The Father’s Will

CENTRAL FOCUS

  • Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

  • Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.
  • Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
  • Philippians 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of [The Father] in Christ Jesus.
