FOOD FOR THOUGHT
God is Love. The brightness of our revelations depends upon the correctness of our doctrines, our building blocks. We who are saved, redeemed, imputed for righteousness, born-again, are spiritually ascending and descending Jacob’s ladder (Gen 28:12; John 1:51) in meditation and prayer. God is Thought. Thoughts are Life (they move). God’s angels are His manifested Thoughts (His Words). God is Spirit. The Holy Spirit of God is the conglomerate of all His Angels (all His Holy Thoughts) who are created Spirits. Angels are His manifested Spirit. God is the eternal Spirit from which all things that are the entire manifested universe was/is being created. All S(s)pirits are God’s T(t)houghts. You are a transitional part of God’s Spirit (Eccl 12:7); you will become either an eternal Heavenly Spirit, or an eternal fallen spirit. The Garden of Eden is a type and shadow of Heaven. All the trees in the Garden of Eden are fruit trees (Gen 1:11,12,29; 2:9,16,17) symbolizing Angels (Heb: messengers) whose fruit is His message (Gal 5:22,23; Eph 5:9 & Rev 22:2). Men are fruit trees (Mat 7:15-20; 12:33; Luke 3:9).
(Luke 8:11) Now the parable is this: The seed is the word [Gk: logos] of God.
(John 15:1,2) I [Jesus Christ] am the true vine [Gk: a vine (as coiling about a support)], and my Father [God] is the husbandman [Gk: landworker, farmer]. Every branch [person] in me that beareth not fruit [“by the way side & stony ground & among thorns”] he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit [“good ground”], he purgeth it [Gk: cleanses, specifically to prune], that it may bring forth more fruit [30 fold, 60 fold, 100 fold].
(John 15:3,4) Now ye are clean through the word [Gk: logos (seed)]  which I have spoken unto you [and others recorded]. Abide [Gk: dwell] in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine [Jesus Christ, the Bible]; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
1. (John 1:14) And the Word [Gk: logos (seed)] [of God] was made flesh [in Jesus Christ], and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
(John 15:5-8) I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me [in the Bible], and I [the Bible] in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me [the Bible] ye can do nothing. (John 15:6) If a man abide not in me [not in the Bible], he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered [Gk: desiccated; shriveled: dried up] [i.e., without the water of the Holy Spirit]; and men gather them , and cast them into the fire, and they are burned [Gk: set on fire; consumed]. If ye abide in me [the Bible], and my words [Gk: rhema; revelations] abide [Gk: dwell] in you, ye shall ask what ye will [in accordance with Biblical doctrine, and if it is best for you], and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples [Gk: learners, pupils] [students].
1. (Mat 13:40-43) As therefore the tares [Gk: darnel or false grain] are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world [Gk: aion; properly age]. The Son of man shall send forth his angels [“men” John 15:6], and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend [God], and them which do iniquity [Gk: illegality, violation of the law, wickedness: unrighteousness]; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous [Gk: innocent, holy] shine forth [Gk: be resplendent /// beam, radiate brilliancy: give light] as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
(John 15:9-11) As the Father hath loved me [as one of His children], so have I loved you [as one of My children]: continue [Gk: stay: dwell, endure, remain] ye in my love. If ye keep [Gk: (watch), to guard (from loss or injury)] my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept [Gk: (watch), to guard (from loss or injury)] my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. These things [commandments, precepts, i.e., structure, bringing order out of chaos (Gen 1:1-5)] have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
(John 15:12-16) This is my commandment, That ye [sacrificially] love one another, as I have [sacrificially] loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life [along a spectrum of sacrificially giving upwards unto death]  for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant [obeys but] knoweth [Gk: understands] not what [Gk: what or why] his lord doeth [“is doing (working out)” Amplif.]: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you [“I have revealed to you everything that I have learned from Him” Amplif. Bible]. Ye have not chosen [Gk: selected] me, but I have chosen [Gk: selected] you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
1. (Rom 12:1,2) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed [Gk: to the same pattern] to this world: but be ye transformed [Gk: “metamorphose” changed, transfigured] by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
(John 15:17-19) These things I command you, that ye [sacrificially] love one another. If the world [Gk: kosmos; cosmos (universe)] hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
(John 15:20-22) Remember the word [Gk: logos (seed)] that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake , because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them [John 1:14, the Bible], they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin .
1. (John 16:1-3) These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended [Gk: entrapped, tripped up, fig. stumble, enticed to sin, apostasy or displeasure]. They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
(John 15:23-27) He that hateth me hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. But this cometh to pass, that the word [Gk: logos (seed)] might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. But when the Comforter [Gk: an intercessor, consoler: advocate] [the Holy Spirit] is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
