Food for thought: While Genesis depicts the divine creation and the Fall, the Gospel of St. John describes the divine work of salvation: the transformation of this fallen world, its healing, in accordance with its divine archetype. The thesis of the Gospel of St. John is the following: that the same same divine Word, which created the world in seven acts of creation, became flesh; and the the Word made flesh accomplishes the healing of this fallen, distorted world through seven acts of healing, these being the seven miracles of the Gospel of St. John. The Son of God through whom the world was created now works in the Son of Man as the Redeemer of the world -- that is the message of the Gospel of St. John. It shows how the seven days of creation in Genesis, are transformed to become the seven acts of healing as outlined by John.

"And he said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind." - Matthew 22:37.

What is the heart? Is it different from the mind?

We know from Scripture (Mt 22) that mind and heart are different.

We know that we are tripartite beings of spirit, soul and body (1Thess 5:23).

What the physical heart is to the body, the will is to the soul (psychological faculties). But more, the heart is all the soul in the direction of the will, or the heart is the soul in action.

Again, the spirit is deeper than the heart, and is the center of our being. But even in the [human] spirit there are deeper places we can call the heart.

One can think of the heart like a multi-layered onion, concentric circles that go ever deeper and deeper in the Lord's presence.

We can know the heart, because our mind will follow it in thought, and our hands in action. Again, while we can fake actions, or even 'do right' out of compulsion, yet our heart reveals to us whether or not we're doing it truly out of love or out of selfish consideration.

We are to be those who love God wholeheartedly, without reservation, without consideration for the self.

"A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished." - Proverbs 22:3.

"If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your [mental disposition or sentiment] on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God." - Colossians 3:1-3.

The evil mentioned in Proverbs could be a calamatous or circumstantial evil, like a 'bad traffic jam ahead', but it could also be a 'moral evil'- perhaps even in oneself.

A wise person will foresee the 'evil up ahead'- their own predilections, their own tendencies, and hide themselves in Christ.

Because to foolishly tackle our selfish tendencies, what maybe our weakness, is to do so head on. "I'm stronger now, I can handle it", we might say.

Better to be wise or prudent, and hide yourself in Christ, in His death (which is our death), in His resurrection (which is our life), in His righteousness and power. We cannot be simple here, but set our mindset, our mental dispositions on things in heaven, not on the earth.

"He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel." - Ps 103:7

There's a vast difference between learning about actions or practices, as in how to do things ceremonially, or religiously, and the 'how' and 'why' things occur.

Knowing the why and the way is far deeper than the how and the what.

We're fascinated when we see the leaves of the tree move, and hear the tree whisper. But the knower not only appreciates the leaves, but looks deeper to the wind moving them.

The Promised Land, what was supposed to be a dream come true became a nightmare to the first generation out of Egypt.

The dreams God put in your heart, are they your Promise Land, or are they an elusive illusion set up by God to destroy you? Do you see good or do you see evil in what God has set before you?

The difference between whether God's promises to you are a dream deep within your heart, or an illusory nightmare is the difference between faith and unbelief, trust or mistrust- is God out for your good, or not?

"And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief." - Hebrews 3:18-19.

How do you know whether you have faith in His promises, or are being kept out because of unbelief? Besides the obvious, when the going gets tough, and things don't go your way, or there are numerous hardships, temptations, and trials- do we blame God, or do we trust God?

If we question God's motives, we can know for certain that it is unbelief that would hinder us from entering into our Promise Land.

Not all can follow you on the road onto which you are called, the path that you're now on...

The the gate is straight and the way is too narrow.

Some wish to bring along their good works, their accomplishments, their education, whatever is good about them.

Some wish to bring along their false-humility disguised as their dark sins, their habits and addictions, and how unworthy and evil they are...

If Jesus is the door, and Jesus is the way, what room is there for your good works or your sins? Leave them, and let's go!

The climb is too steep, the way is too precarious.

Some are simply not developed to breathe the high-altitude of your climb.

Many a foot is careless in the ascent, or underdeveloped to soar into the clear and open sky.

If Jesus ascended up on high, if His face shines brightly like the sun, how is it that you count two when you should be counting One?

"Before the birth of the inner life- before the palpable manifestation of the action of grace and union with God- it frequently happens that a man still acts on his own initiative, up to the limit of his powers.

But when he is exhausted by the failure of his efforts he at last casts aside his own activity, and whole-heartedly gives himself up to the all-embracing action of grace. Then the Lord visits him with His mercy, and kindles a fire of inner spiritual life in him, and he knows from experience that it is not his own former efforts which have effected this great transformation.

Afterwards, the more or less frequent withdrawals of divine grace teach him by experience that sustaining this fire of life is likewise not dependent on his own efforts."

~ St. Theophan the Recluse.

Sophia unveiled, Wisdom dancing in multiple forms.

The norms! The norms! we cry for the familiar-
But these burn away at your touch, and the idols we relied on fall into a pile of dust.

There is a shy and bashful glance, and the beauty of that One slays us in a glimmer.

Sophia re-veiled, Light hiding just before the morn.

Reborn! Reborn! The dawn laughs in revealing Her-
Yet every star has a name, has a shine, a glory that it shares with no one.

That crown we wear bejeweled, clothed in solar garments never more to be dimmer.

~ Leon Bahrman.

You may fancy yourself a progressive Christian, or perhaps a 'deconstructionist', but if your teaching is intent on undermining the authority of the Holy Scriptures, you are a false prophet and an antichrist.

"Jesus might have said, I became man for you. If you do not become God for me, you wrong me."

"To be full of things is to be empty of God. To be empty of things is to be full of God."

"The seed of God is in us. Given an intelligent and hard-working farmer, it will thrive and grow up to God, whose seed it is; and accordingly its fruits will be God-nature. Pear seeds grow into pear trees, nut seeds into nut trees, and God-seed into God."

The Sabbath was always about resting from your labors, as God did from His on the 7th day.

The religious man, the law-keeper, turned it into a works oriented observance, the opposite of what it was intended for.

God, Who is above time and space, was never bound to a specific day- it was never about keeping a set day for God- but it was always about a person, The Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ was ever and always the True Sabbath, and to rest in Him from all your labors, all your efforts at saving yourself, is to trust in His finished work, and to enter Him.

The only labor the Bible sanctions is laboring to enter into His rest- which is Christ, the True Sabbath.

"Without fear of contradiction, on the authority of God, I say today that there is no person who has a right to the epistles until he has gone through the Acts of the Apostles and received the Holy Spirit."

Our Story

For over 30 years I’ve studied the Scriptures in depth, within the context of their original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek languages. Have ministered and taught in multiple venues, including open-air preaching, church services of varying sizes, home fellowship groups, as well as college classrooms.

The learning of the Scriptures came about through an intense desire to know God in greater dimensions. While much of it was doctrinal or theoretical in the early days, many personal studies have literally changed my life. It is with this intense hunger for not only bettering myself, but also in being a blessing to the Body of Christ, that this teaching ministry came about.

These studies, far from being simply doctrinal, have taken on ever deepening mystical applications over the years. Superseding an intellectual understanding, the opening of the heart through inward knowledge or revelation beyond the ‘letter of the law’ is not only taught by me, but demonstrated.

My vision is to see the restoration of the fivefold ministry as described in Ephesians 4:11, working with fellow apostles and prophets in establishing congregations through evangelism and ordaining a plurality of elders (pastors or bishops) in each church.
