10-29-23 God is Thought. The brightness of our revelations depends upon the correctness of our doctrines, our building blocks, our Godly thoughts laid one upon another, ascending into the mind of Christ. Thought is a manifestation of “energy” (electricity analogy). These study notes are archived at



(1 Kings 18:30) And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people [obediently] came near unto him [they prayed together, “salting” the wound] and he repaired [Heb: to mend (by stitching), fig. to cure: heal, make whole] [i.e., he restored] the [brasen] altar of the [salvation of the] LORD that was broken down [Heb: pulled down or in pieces, destroyed: beaten down, overthrown, ruined, X utterly]

1.    Commentary: The people had abandoned their belief system, they had abandoned their faith.


(1 Kings 18:31-35) And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came [i.e., they all “heard” the word (heard the seed)], saying, Israel [Heb: he will rule as God, prince with God] shall be thy name: And with the stones [the 12 tribes] he built an [brasen] altar [of salvation] in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench [1] about [Heb: on every side, compassing] the [brasen] altar [of our salvation], as great as would contain two measures [i.e., two specific amounts] of seed [2]. And he [Elijah] put the wood [i.e., the broken-off branches (Rom 11:17), the rejected parts of trees, the sins (sinfulness) of our natural-man] in order [i.e., under control] [3], and [then] cut the [innocent] bullock in [into covering] pieces [(fig.) to sacrificially cover each sin (the broken off pieces of wood) from the eyes of God], and laid him [laid the bullock, representing the innocent sacrifice of Jesus Christ)] on the wood [to symbolize the covering atonement (forgiveness) of our broken souls (our sins)], and said, Fill four [“chosen”] barrels with water [fill the four barrels with the water of the word of God, i.e., fill Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, (and we too have become many more “chosen” barrels)], and pour it [4] on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood [the first time for our “justification = salvation” at the brasen altar]. And he said, Do it the second time [at the brasen laver for our “sanctification = cleansing.” Take into (swallow) your barrel of the water of the word of God, i.e., re-read (re-hear), meditate, contemplate, consider, and then pour God’s word out of yourself]. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time [as the thoughts of your mind spiritually enter into the Tabernacle (the house of God) for our “perfection” i.e., re-read (re-hear), meditate, and pour]. And they did it the third time [5]. And the water [the flowing Holy Spirit of God] ran [in continuous activity] round about [“on all sides” of] the altar [of salvation]; and he filled the trench [that was plowed deep into the defiling earth] also with water [so now we know who is guarding our salvation].

1.    trench = Heb: a channel (into which water is raised for irrigation); also a bandage placed upon a wound: cure, healing, little river, watercourse.

a.     Commentary: “a trench” = within the Hebrew definition given of “trench,” please note that water symbolizes the Holy Spirit.

2.    Commentary: “two measures of seed” = one measure of God the Father and one measure of God the Son only, because God the Holy Spirit (the third measure) was not yet given:

a.     (John 16:7) Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient [Gk: good, profitable] for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter [the Holy Spirit] will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

b.    (Matt 13:33) Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven [Gk: to ferment (as if boiling up)] [like yeast puffing up, symbolizing false doctrine (Matt 16:6,11,12)], which a woman took [like the “apple”], and hid [Gk: concealed] in three measures of meal [Gk: flour] [ground up seed: 1. God the Father, 2. God the Son, 3. God the Holy Spirit, all three are symbolized by “three measures of meal,” thereby making the composite Bible], till the whole was leavened [in apostasy, and the leavening is approaching completion.

3.    (2 Tim 1:7) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear [the opposite of the spirit of faith]; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind [Gk: discipline, self-control].

4.    Commentary: “and pour it” = pour out the chosen barrels of water (the word of God), i.e., pour out your “salt of the word of God, pour out your understanding of the word of God, unto the people.

5.    Commentary: “the third time” = of filling (reading, taking in, swallowing), then meditating i.e., chewing the cud (thinking), and then pouring out to the people the 4 barrels of water 3 times. In addition to signifying the Trinity, and the 12 tribes, perhaps also indicating that we too are “chosen” barrels of heavenly water, and that we too should willingly accept our barrel to be filled with the water of the word of God that may be found in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, “three times,” i.e., ad infinitum, lest the barrel be found empty.

a.     (Josh 1:8) This book of the law [the Bible] shall not depart out of thy mouth [i.e., be poured out to others]; but [except] thou shalt meditate [Heb: ponder: speak, study, talk, utter] therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.



(1 Kings 18:36,37) And it came to pass at the time of the offering [Heb: to ascend] of the evening sacrifice [3 pm], that Elijah the prophet [Heb: inspired man] came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have [obediently] done all these things at thy word. Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart [Heb: (their) understanding] back again [out of apostasy back toward holiness].


(1 Kings 18:38-40) Then the fire of the LORD fell [1], and consumed [Gk: to eat: burned up, devoured] the burnt sacrifice [downward], and the wood [downward, and the stones [downward], and the dust [downward], and licked up the water [upward] that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces [in worship]: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God. And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets [believers] of Baal [Satan]; let not one of them escape. And they took [Heb: seized] them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook [Heb: stream] Kishon [Heb: winding /// to bend, to set a trap: lay a snare], and slew them there [ending the Sore Famine/Great Tribulation] [2].  

1.    (Heb 12:29) For our God is a consuming [Gk: to consume utterly] fire.

2.    (Deut 13:5) And that [false] prophet, or that [false] dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed [Heb: severed, ransomed; preserved: rescued] you out of the house of bondage [Heb: servitude] [to Satan, “the god of this world” 2 Cor 4:4], to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.


(1 Kings 18:41) And Elijah said [gave, delivered, a last warning] unto Ahab [i.e., Ahab’s last chance to gain eternal life] [1], Get thee up [Heb: ascend, mount up, (and be) restored] [get thee up Mount Carmel], eat and drink [eat the “logos” word and drink the “rhema” word; prepare yourself to meet God]; for there is a sound [Heb: call, voice] of abundance of rain [an abundance of righteousness, the latter rain, revelations, i.e., God is coming].

1.    (Jer 3:3) Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore's forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed.



(1 Kings 18:42-44) So Ahab went up [marginally, as a professing believer rather than as a confessing believer] to eat and to drink [to sustain himself]. And Elijah went up [Heb: ascended] to the top of Carmel [to be closer (more intimate) with God]; and he cast himself down [at the realization of his sins] upon the earth, and put his face between his knees [in passionate prayer], And said to his servant [to you or me in type and shadow], Go up now [experience “the rapture” NOW; mentally experience spiritual enlightenment, revelation upon revelation, and great joy], look [Heb: look intently at; by implic. to regard with pleasure] toward the sea [a Bible symbol of all humanity; look at (spiritually) your brothers and sisters who are being mentally raptured together, like yourself]. And he [Elijah’s servant] went up [obediently], and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he [Elijah] said, Go again seven times [seven is the symbolic number of “completion” i.e., of a process, a revelation incrementally received (built up) to completion, “seven times” i.e., go often]. And it came to pass at the seventh time [at “completion”] [1], that he [the servant] said, Behold, there ariseth [Heb: ascends] a little [Heb: abbreviated, diminutive] cloud [of fully raptured people] out of the sea [of humanity], like a man's hand [2] [the Hand of Christ, and the full Body of Christ continues to rise up out of the sea of humanity, to this time] [3]. And he [the servant (an inspired man), now a redeemed “instrument of God” prophesying] said [to Elijah, Ahab’s exit orders (Gen 3:23; Isa 14:12)], Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot [(for war)], and get thee down [rejected from Mount Carmel, i.e., down from a strong type and shadow of heaven], that the rain [“the truth” John 14:6] stop thee not [in your mad pursuit of your own destruction] [4].

1.    (Josh 6:16) And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the LORD hath given you the city.

2.    (Eph 4:10-12) He [Jesus Christ] that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) And he gave [Gk: granted] [left behind, the working fingers of His Hand, i.e., “The Hand Ministry” consisting of] some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers [collectively rising (ascending) out of the sea of humanity]; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

3.    (Rom 8:18,19) For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory [Christ Jesus] which shall be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover, disclosed] in us [ref. 2 Thess 1:4-12]. For the earnest expectation of the creature [Gk: (all) creation] waiteth for the manifestation [Gk: disclosure: appearance, revelation] of the sons of God [i.e., us in full Glory].

4.    (2 Pet 2:1) But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in [“who will subtly and stealthily introduce heretical doctrines” Amplified Bible] damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.




(1 Kings 18:45,46) And it came to pass in the mean while [i.e., while the previous circumstances of no rain, sore famine, and great tribulation) were happening], that the heaven was black [Heb: ashy, dark colored; by implic. to mourn (in sackcloth or other sordid garments): X heavily] [1] with clouds and wind [the wind symbolizes the Holy Spirit coming with Christ Jesus and the raptured Saints to “blow away” the chaff], and there was a great rain [2]. And Ahab rode [in his war chariot], and went to Jezreel [Heb: God will sow] [the palace of King Ahab was situated in the city of Jezreel] [3]. And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; he girded up his loins, and ran [with the fullness of the Holy Spirit] before [ahead of] Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel [but not yet into Jezreel until Ahab’s arrival which initiates the 1,000 years Millennium. May we note that “the valley of Jezreel” is also called “Armageddon” (Heb:  rendezvous)] [4].

1.    Commentary: “black with clouds” = redeemed residents in Heaven are angry during the sore Famine/Tribulation and cry out “with a loud voice” (the fifth seal, Rev 6:9-11) for judgement and vengeance, i.e., for correction, herein prophesying a “corrected” final picture of the then happily cleansed (no darkness) raptured Saints coming back with Christ Jesus in white clouds “clothed in fine linen, white and clean” (Rev 19:14) in readiness to judge the world [i.e., to judge the universe].

a.     (1 Cor 6:2,3) Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world [Gk: “cosmos” (the universe)]? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels [i.e., judge the bad (evil) angels only]? how much more things that pertain to this life?

2.    Commentary: “a great rain” = great water of the word sinking down deep into the heart of the earth and embracing the (sown) dead bodies (seeds) of the saints, and also embracing those living saints who are still “alive and remain” (1 Thes 4:17) thereby initiating the first resurrection (Rev 20:1-6) of fully regenerated Saints (Angels) who will preach and teach throughout the 1,000 years Millennium. What does water do to seeds buried in the earth? The Holy Spirit’s action on sown (planted) seeds may be exemplified by we the maturing “wheat seeds” (the saints) who are slowly growing up out of the defiling ground, growing up out of the earth, being separated from the earth while we are, at the same time slowly being raptured closer to God, i.e., we are now being mentally separated from this earth by revelations from Godof God. This is happening while we learn and are becoming more and more intimate with God as we receive revelation upon revelation, ever growing upward, separating our thoughts of God (i.e., God’s Thoughts) from the flesh of earth. (having flesh is like walking around in a box). Immediately after the latter rain, the 1,000 years Millennium begins with equipped Saints (us), now fully prepared (educated) to minister to God’s people for “a thousand years.”

3.    Nelson’s Illustrated Bile Dictionary: “Jezreel” = The Old Testament name of the entire valley that separates Samaria from Galilee (Josh 17:16) is also called Armageddon, which is the site of the final battle of this age in which God intervenes to destroy the armies of Satan and to cast Satan into the bottomless pit [eternally]. This valley between Mount Carmel and the city of Jezreel known as the Valley of Jezreel was a strategic trade and military site.

4.    rendezvous: Dict. = a place designated for a meeting or assembling, as of troops, ships, airplanes, space vehicles, etc. [i.e., therein, the entire assembly of Satan’s earthly army is going to “meet” God]
