The next key we cover will be numbers. Everything in the Bible that is complete has three parts. We then start by dividing one into three decimals. In the first place is the Father. In the second place is the Son or the Will of God. In the third place is the Spirit. .Father (1 ).Son (2 ).Spirit (3) Each decimal place has a name.
This is the basic numbering system for the entire Bible. The first three sons of Jacob refer to and represent the father, son, and spirit..
His Spirit was from the Father. Consider Romans 1:20. The power of God and the Godhead are to be clearly seen be all. By this, we may consider man, who is made in His image with body, soul, and spirit. The father represents the body, and who he is. The son is the soul or the will of the father which is also the action.
When Jacob prophesied over his sons before his death, he spoke of Reuben as the beginning of his strength. Reuben was the beginning of the power of the Kingdom because strength is the beginning of power. Our birthright is to serve and to build the Kingdom and Power of God.
The sons of Jacob represent the skills or qualities of our vocation. God changed Jacob's name to Israel which means "to rule as God" (Strong's OT:3478). In Genesis 49:3, Jacob stated that Reuben was the beginning of his strength. Do we need strength to rule as God?
That is how Jesus answered Nicodemus in John 3:2-5 when he asked, "How may I receive this power?" He told Nicodemus, "Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." Jesus explained there is a time and order that one must follow or grow into by the Spirit. To come to fruition, every task requires a beginning, learning, growing, and maturity.
The one who excels in God is the one that has the understanding of the wisdom of God. It takes wisdom to learn to serve God completely. That makes the wisdom of God the purpose. Proverbs 4:7
For this to happen, we must first sacrifice the will of the old man for the will of the Master, which is one's purpose.
Jesus took Peter, James, and John up on a high mountain. These three represent three types of power. Peter was the demonstration, James was the healer, and John was the prophet. (NT:2385from 2384 and 2390 progenitor - in the direct line] used in KJV as healer, or to make whole) Moses and Elias appeared. Moses was as God to Pharaoh, speaking to the power of the bride, or the demonstration. Elias was the anointed power. Jesus, bringing up the rear, was the first and the last. Here we have the three types of power.
The queen was most impressed with Solomon's wisdom. Wisdom is the one thing the Church needs. This wisdom could be seen in the Psalms, if we could define the scriptures as Solomon wrote them. Wisdom comes from the same place knowledge does. It comes from Proverbs 4:7 which says,
"Wisdom is the principal thing;...
Wisdom is the sweet water that replaces bitter water.
Moses went to Midian after he slew the Egyptian because he was very meek (Num. 12:3). That is the reason the king goes through Dan and Naphtali before he earns the rank of a prophet. Scripture doesn't teach how to repent. It shows with what to replace the sin.
This is called the cleansing of the spirit. Man is led by his spirit. The cleansing of the spirit is proportional to the cleanliness of the man. Have you ever heard the phrase "If it feels good do it?" Good or bad depends on the condition of the spirit of the man. Satan has no effects on the spirit of a perfect man. (Or complete)
Simeon is one of the most important persons in the Old Testament. It was Simeon that Joseph held hostage before he led the children of Israel out of Egypt (Gen. 42:24). The apostle Peter whose given name was Simon preached on the day of Pentecost again leading God's children out. It is interesting to note that Simon translated means Simeon (Strong's NT:4613). Moreover, it was Peter to whom Jesus gave the keys to the kingdom. Only a king with ability carries the keys.
After Simeon has established the spirits by the word, the Spirit proves the spirits by the Word. The Law is the action of the ministry and is found in I Chronicles 4:42.
"And some of them, even of the sons of Simeon, five hundred men, went to mount Seir, having for their captains Pelatiah, and Neariah, and Rephaiah, and Uzziel, the sons of Ishi."
Sier was a rough and shaggy place as a he-goat. The word rough in Daniel 8:21 has the same meaning and states, "the rough goat is the king of Grecia." The roughness of Grecia is where we find thousands of different denominations in the Church. However, we have this promise,
"Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth:" Luke 3:5
The five hundred exposes the rank of the captains. Take the 500 and reverse it - 005 Then we put decimals in it and it reads .0.0.5. Places 1 and 2 are zero and counted as such. The third place is the place of the spirit. Five is the number of the judge. This informs us that the men who went are qualified
