8-17-04 - DREAM - I was in my old apartment building that I moved out of in 1996 on Jackson St. in Milwaukee, WI. I noticed that all the lights were out in the hallway near the lobby so I went towards the office and saw that the office was closed and the door was permanently sealed off with a metal sheet. 

So I went to the basement to the maintenance room. Across from the elevator in the basement, there was an orchestra sitting on chairs, but they weren't playing - they were idle. 

I went on down the hall to the maintenance room and found the entire maintenance crew, office personnel and the owners. They were having a meeting. I didn't recognize any of them and they seemed hostile besides. The owner was wearing an odd shade of orange-brown suit. He had dark hair and a moustache.

I had thought about offering my services as Manager of the building, but after seeing them and their faces, I couldn't like these people if I tried. 

As I woke up, I heard a telephone ring once in my right ear. I asked for a message if there was one. 

I began seeing dozens of white panels of abstract shapes passing in front of me. I looked to see if there was any shapes I could recognize. They were all abstract and I wouldn't recognize any one of them a second time. 

They resembled Picasso shapes except that Picasso shapes were distortions of real objects and nothing on the panels were anything - not real letters or numbers or objects - just total abstract shapes. 

8-18-04 -  I was sitting in a car, talking to my friend Michelle on the phone, telling her my dream that I didn't want to bother writing down, when an old white haired man walked next to the car on the driver's side. (I was sitting on the passenger side)  He was talking about golf to another guy and was going to put his putter in the back seat of the car and then he said to the guy, "As you know, putters change."

(At this point I was awake, and I could actually hear his voice in my ear. )

While I was hearing his voice, the real telephone rang and it was my friend Michelle. Before she could say anything, I told her I had just been sitting in a car talking to her on the telephone and an old white-haired man had come by and put his putter into the back of my car and had told another man, "Putters change.!

She said, "This is what I just dreamed: 

I and Paul were living in a hotel and the light was dim in the hallways, so Paul put a red glass Tiffany lamp out in the hallway hanging from the ceiling. It didn't make it very bright and it glowed red. 

Then our  teacher came over and told Paul to take down the red lamp from the hallway because it looked terrible. 

Paul took down the red light and was going to hang it up in the room and the teacher said, "No! Don't do that. I'll show you where the switches are so you can turn on the lights."

So, the teacher opened the mirror and behind the mirror were all the light switches. I noticed that everything was reflected in the mirror but myself. 

The teacher said, "The switch to the TV is back here too, but you don't have to use that one. There is 'NEVER' anything worthwhile on TV - EVER!"

I said, "You mean there is never any good Sci Fi or movies on?  The teacher said, "No!"

The teacher left and Paul put on the TV to see what was on and Star Trek was on. There was Spock, but he looked human and didn't have his Vulcan ears. 

I asked, "Where was teacher going that he had to leave?"

Paul answered, "He was going to play golf!"  

I asked, "How do you know that?"

Paul answered, "He was carrying his putter!"

In 1987 a golf buddy gave me a copy of Michael Murphy's classic book, "Golf in the Kingdom." Having an interest in mysticism, this book profoundly changed my understanding of golf and how the game touches my soul. Through the archetypal golf teacher, Shivas Irons, Murphy's writing helped explain the many extraordinary, mysterious experiences I had as a golfer: "being in the zone", feeling tremendous freedom and joy on the golf course, sensing the mystical presence of God. Golf in the Kingdom helped me understand how golf has always played an integral part in my spiritual journey.

I have come to appreciate golf as a key part of my spiritual life and practice. Over the years golf has served as a kind of "touchstone" which has kept me in contact with some of the most important parts of my life. Golf continually calls me back to learn more about myself and the beautiful world we live in. Golf puts me in touch with interesting people. Some of my closest friendships have developed with people I have had the privilege of playing with.

The golf course calls me back week after week, year in and year out. Each time I return to the golf course, I get the feeling that I am returning to my true self, checking in with my soul. On the first tee I reconnect with the spirited golfer inside, full of hope and expectation that this round of golf will be a great experience. Golf has become an amazing adventure of self discovery.

If you have an interest in spirituality, I would encourage you to consider the lessons you have learned through your time playing golf. Reflect upon the role golf plays in your spiritual journey. You might be amazed at just how much you have grown and learned from your journeys around the golf course.

The toughest lesson for me on the golf course comes from keeping score. For an infrequent player, I can hit the ball pretty far on my tee and wood shots. What really bothers me is those booming drives count just as much as those short two-inch putts. No matter what size shot, they count equal. The spiritual lesson from this is very important. Some people believe that what they have to offer the church is too insignificant to make any difference. If you make food for someone who is sick or whose family member is in the hospital, that is just as significant as the preacher giving the Sunday sermon. All some people have to offer is prayer, but we donít realize or understand the power that is released when we pray. Everything we do to serve each other, even if it feels like that two-inch putt, has a significant impact on the body of Christ.

5. The PANOPLY of the War

In Greek, the word hopla means "pieces of armor," whereas panoplia is the full suit. The Christian has full protection. No piece is missing - you are fully protected

Full armor. Put on, says Paul, the full armor of God. - it is the armor of God, not our inherent abilities to ward off the devil and be a successful disciple

- in the sphere of the bowling alley, they provide the shoes and the balls; at Putt Putt, they provide the golf balls and putters - unless you are like me; in the sphere of the heavenly struggle, God provides the materiel. Would you allow your son to play on a football team that did not provide helmets? Only the full equipment will do. The spiritual equipment God provides is both adequate for defence and for offence:

SEE: http://www.spirit-wars.com/v25/english/Library/Articles/Ephesians6.htm

Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].
Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Eph 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
Eph 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Eph 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Eph 6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
Eph 6:20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Commentary on Ephesians 6:10-18

(Read Ephesians 6:10-18)

Spiritual strength and courage are needed for our spiritual warfare and suffering. Those who would prove themselves to have true grace, must aim at all grace; and put on the whole armour of God, which he prepares and bestows. The Christian armour is made to be worn; and there is no putting off our armour till we have done our warfare, and finished our course. The combat is not against human enemies, nor against our own corrupt nature only; we have to do with an enemy who has a thousand ways of beguiling unstable souls. The devils assault us in the things that belong to our souls, and labour to deface the heavenly image in our hearts. We must resolve by God's grace, not to yield to Satan. Resist him, and he will flee. If we give way, he will get ground. If we distrust either our cause, or our Leader, or our armour, we give him advantage. The different parts of the armour of heavy-armed soldiers, who had to sustain the fiercest assaults of the enemy, are here described. There is none for the back; nothing to defend those who turn back in the Christian warfare. Truth, or sincerity, is the girdle. This girds on all the other pieces of our armour, and is first mentioned. There can be no religion without sincerity. The righteousness of Christ, imputed to us, is a breastplate against the arrows of Divine wrath. The righteousness of Christ implanted in us, fortifies the heart against the attacks of Satan. Resolution must be as greaves, or armour to our legs; and to stand their ground or to march forward in rugged paths, the feet must be shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Motives to obedience, amidst trials, must be drawn from a clear knowledge of the gospel. Faith is all in all in an hour of temptation. Faith, as relying on unseen objects, receiving Christ and the benefits of redemption, and so deriving grace from him, is like a shield, a defence every way. The devil is the wicked one. Violent temptations, by which the soul is set on fire of hell, are darts Satan shoots at us. Also, hard thoughts of God, and as to ourselves. Faith applying the word of God and the grace of Christ, quenches the darts of temptation. Salvation must be our helmet. A good hope of salvation, a Scriptural expectation of victory, will purify the soul, and keep it from being defiled by Satan. To the Christian armed for defense in battle, the apostle recommends only one weapon of attack; but it is enough, the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. It subdues and mortifies evil desires and blasphemous thoughts as they rise within; and answers unbelief and error as they assault from without. A single text, well understood, and rightly applied, at once destroys a temptation or an objection, and subdues the most formidable adversary. Prayer must fasten all the other parts of our Christian armour. There are other duties of religion, and of our stations in the world, but we must keep up times of prayer. Though set and solemn prayer may not be seasonable when other duties are to be done, yet short pious prayers darted out, always are so. We must use holy thoughts in our ordinary course. A vain heart will be vain in prayer. We must pray with all kinds of prayer, public, private, and secret; social and solitary; solemn and sudden: with all the parts of prayer; confession of sin, petition for mercy, and thanksgiving for favours received. And we must do it by the grace of God the Holy Spirit, in dependence on, and according to, his teaching. We must preserve in particular requests, notwithstanding discouragements. We must pray, not for ourselves only, but for all saints. Our enemies are mighty, and we are without strength, but our Redeemer is almighty, and in the power of his mighty we may overcome. Wherefore we must stir up ourselves. Have not we, when God has called, often neglected to answer? Let us think upon these things, and continue our prayers with patience.


Symphony of Golf 


A golf course has 18 holes, the front 9 and the back 9. 18 is half of 36 which is the Gematrian base number. 18 times 24 = 432, a Gematrian sacred number.

A startling microcosmic revelation of the mystic force of the number 432 came to light recently when engineers in the Wilson Sporting Goods laboratories testing (for distance) golf balls with anywhere from 30 to 1,212 dimples were advised by computer that the optimum number would be 432. For indeed, the Wilson 432 golf ball has been found by professionals to lengthen their drives some ten to thirteen or more yards.

The ancient sites around the world are very precisely positioned on a global coordinate system in relation to the position of the Great Pyramid at Giza. The positions of the sites are given in the geometry of their construction.

A very ancient system of numbers was used in the system, which we call "Gematria."

"Gematrian" numbers are found in ancient myths and religions, including the Bible.

Gematrian numbers were used in systems of weights and measures by ancient peoples, including the Greeks, the Egyptians, the Persians, the Babylonians and the Romans.

The ancient Mayans used Gematrian numbers in their very accurate timekeeping.

The Code system uses mathematical constants, such as pi and the radian.

The system also uses conventions that are still in use, such as the 360 degree circle, 60 minute degree, 60 second minute, the base-ten numbering system, the 12-inch foot, and the 5280-foot mile.

Some readers may be familiar with the Greek system of Gematria, or others, which have numbers such as 666, 777 and 888. This system is different in that The Gematrian numbers all are divisible by nine and add to nine or a multiple. The basic numbers always end in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8.

The 5th Century B.C. trading empire of the Eastern Mediterranean Phoenicians saw the appearance of a writing mode in which alphabetical letters served as numbers. Even at this early date, however, its roots were lost in the mists of time. From this base evolved the Hebraic and later Greek systems of Gematria. Both had reached a high degree of development by the 3rd Century B.C.

These alpha-numeric alphabets exhibited qualities and inter-relationships for which there is no logical intention. Yet an entire symbolic teaching evolved around them which incorporated the principles of number, form, sound and astronomy. Only number combinations and figures could be utilized to express this knowledge. Today, we view numbers as merely an expression of quantity. To the ancients, every number had its own character and identity; a place in an arithmetic chain that leads from one dimension of understanding to another.

This extraordinary system of arithmetic, or concealed geometry, form the link between the languages of literature and mathematics. With this knowledge, ancient literature, metrology and Sacred Geometry can be viewed with new eyes. With numbers, alphabetical cryptography becomes the law. Biblical numbers and structure dimensions become alphabetical statements. The WORD (number) becomes FLESH (dimensional) for numbers are words.

(Example: 3168 = Lord Jesus Christ - - Kupios Inoors Xpioros)

Some of the Gematrian numbers with their "Alpha" or "Word" meanings:

144 = Light

288 = Double light, the Kingdom of Heaven.

432 = Consecration (also the square root of the classical speed of light, 186624 miles per second). Several Biblical references are also tied to it; Luke 8:15, Revelation 2:17, etc.

396 = Classical earth radius (3960 miles).

576 = Prophecy and Gospel.

864 = Time (2) the source of light and life, (3) Most Holy.

1152 = Witness (576 x 2). Biblical references include Luke 14:26, Revelation 3:12, 12:11 and 19:9.

1296 = Circle of space (360 x 60 x 60). 1296 was also Plato's favorite number.

1548 = Priest of God.

1728 = A-flat in music.

2304 = False Christs and False prophets (1 Cor. 14:22, Mark 13:12).

3168 = Lord Jesus Christ.

3888 = New Jerusalem (Rev. 21:2, 1 Cor. 12:27, Luke 8:21, etc.).

5184 = Victory over the beast (Rev. 15:2).

Even more amazing is the fact that the same system of numbers was used by the ancient Mayans in the West in their very precise time-keeping! The Mayans used a 20-day month in their calendar. Here is a table of some Mayan Calendar units and their equivalent Gematrian numbers :


20 days     = 18 kin *288   days = 20 bactun
36 days     = 20 uinals *576 days   = 20 pictun
72 days     = 20 tuns *1152 days = 20 calabtun
*144 days = 20 katun *2304 days = 20 kinchilton

Joe Mason states: Back around 1992, a strange thing happened. One night at work the numbers 72 and 360 kept coming into my mind over and over. I knew about the 72 Divine Names, and I had read that 360 was called a "Prophetic Year," by certain proponents of the Bible. It is part of an interpretation concerning the dream of Nebuchadnezzar in the Book of Daniel. He dreamed that a great tree was cut and banded, which caused a period of insanity for seven years. This is calculated as Prophetic Years, giving 7 x 360 = 2520 years. From the fall of the Temple at Jerusalem, this is said to give the year 1914 as the beginning of the Apocalypse. I finally stopped and multiplied the numbers coming into my head. 72 x 360 = 25920. I was startled, because I knew this was the number of years of the precession, caused by the "wobble" of the earth's axis, giving us our 12 Zodiac Ages of 2160 years each.

I had read about the precession number in Joseph Campbell's, The Inner Reaches of Outer Space back in 1990. It was mentioned that when the precession number is divided by the ancient number 60, called "Soss," the result is
432, which is a cycle of time number (Consecration in Gematrian).

In Joseph Campbell's book, he gave the number of years from Adam's creation to the time Noah's Ark landed on the mountain, as 1656. The number of weeks in that period of years is 86400, it is figured. A human heart, beating once a second, gives the same number, 86400, in one day (60 x 60 x 24). Dividing the number in half gives 43200, strongly suggesting the ancient cycle of time number. The number 108 is the number of names of the Mother Goddess in India, and figures in the time cycle number as 108 x 4 = 432.

Some months later, I had a dream of a circle divided into parts, and I knew it was about the Gematrian system. It came out to a 360 degree circle, or "Wheel," divided into 10 parts of 36 degrees each, giving the sequence - 36, 72, 108, 144, etc. Full revolutions produce the same numbers with factors of ten - 360, 720, 1080, 1440, etc. The pattern keeps repeating on a base-ten system, so, for example, 144,000 is 400 times around the "Wheel." Each section is divided into 6 parts, for a total of 60 marks. The top and bottom points of the "Wheel" have a zero tangent.

Here is a graphic of the Gematrian Wheel as Joe dreamed it:


Twenty-Part ("666" Tangent) Wheel

Some other significant numbers are located at "in-between" points on the "Gematrian Wheel." It could be considered a 20-part Wheel. Each of these points are 18 degrees between the Gematrian numbers, such as 18, 54, 90, 126, 162, 198, and 234. Notice that 54, 126, and 234 all have the same tangent (again, ignoring plus/minus). Check this against the number 666, to see it has the same tangent. 666 is one of the '"in-between" points, being between 648 and 684 on the "Gematrian Wheel." Notice too, that some of these numbers rearranged, and with various zeros, form regular Gematrian numbers. For example, add a zero to 126 to get 1260, or insert a zero into 234 for 2304. Notice also that the "in-between" numbers also add to nine or a multiple of nine, and are divisible by nine. The numbers often show a repositioning, such as 432 and the reverse, 234 (an in-between point), and 324. Such is the odd nature of Gematrian and Gematrian-related numbers.


James Furia's Keyboard


The international standard of tuning is 440 Hz = the note "A". set in stone by J.S. Bach at a point in history where the remarkable discovery of "The Code" had not been discovered yet.

The truth remains that there any many standards of tuning created for different musical situations such as concert tuning; 445 = "A" Many esoteric schools of thought have believed that there is 3 parts to a perfect understanding of an unknown ancient lost technology; Mathematics, Astronomy and MUSIC.

Reasons to change the standard of tuning from 440 to 432

1. Harmonically aligns to astronomical time count of Precession of the equinoxes, 432 X 60 = 25920

2. The original Stradivarius violin was designed to be tuned to 432, it is the most precise instrument ever constructed by humans.

3. 432 is found at countless ancient sacred sites Furia's virtual tour of sacred sites along with such key locations as the Great Pyramid in Egypt, 432 is found at the largest Buddhist temple in the world The borobudur - At the Borobudur the amount of statues at "The temple of countless Buddhas" is 432

4. over 2,000 signatures on a petition to the Italian government to change the standard to 432 due to the registers ripping many opera singers voices in 440 (it fell on deaf ears)

5. The most important of all is when the correction to 432 is made, the others notes of the entire octave display a multitude of Gematrian ancient sacred numbers that are astoundingly relative to astronomy, sacred geometry, The Bible and other mysterious literary works such as the Bhagavad-gita and exact longitude and latitudes and hundreds of pyramids and other sacred sites.

Exodus -
And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.
10:22  And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:
10:23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

18:5 Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.

18:6 The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him.

14:3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which [is] before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, [and there shall be] a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

14:5 And ye shall flee [to] the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, [and] all the saints with thee.

14:6 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the light shall not be clear, [nor] dark:

14:7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, [that] at evening time it shall be light.

14:8 And it shall be in that day, [that] living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

14:20 In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD'S house shall be like the bowls before the altar.

14:21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.

Matthew: 5:14-16

5:14  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

5:15  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

5:16  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

In Christ's metaphor, light illuminates what was once dark; it reveals things that were hidden. Though we may be poor, considered old and over the hill, uneducated and obscure, when we live our lives as He instructs, we are a brilliant beacon to this tired and confused world. Our lives can shine a spotlight on the solutions to many common problems experienced by our friends and neighbors.

Jesus points out that we should not hide our light under a basket (verse 15), but live it in the open for all to see. We can set a proper example of the abundant way to live. We should give everyone we meet the light of our loving concern, the light of our honesty, the light of joy and peace, the light of godly family relations, the light of good work habits, and all the other rays of light contained in God's way.

Luke 12:3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops

Luke 12:33-36 

12:33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.

12:34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

12:35 Let your loins be girded about, and [your] lights burning;

12:36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.

... 29. This also cometh forth 1 from the LORD of hosts, [which] is wonderful 52 in counsel ... Considering
that the bride is never mentioned, the ten may well be brides ...

1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name [was] John.

1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all [men] through him might believe.

1:8 He was not that Light, but [was sent] to bear witness of that Light.

1:9 [That] was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name:

1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

1:15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

1:16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

John 3:15-21
3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

John 5:35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light

Acts 26 12-18
26:12 Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests,

26:13 At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.

26:14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? [it is] hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

26:15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.

26:16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;

26:17 Delivering thee from the people, and [from] the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,

26:18 To open their eyes, [and] to turn [them] from darkness to light, and [from] the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

26:21 For these causes the Jews caught me in the temple, and went about to kill [me].

26:22 Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:

26:23 That Christ should suffer, [and] that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles.

1 Cor  4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God

2 Cor 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 

4:5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.


Ephesians 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

The oldest manuscripts, versions, and Fathers, read "heart." Compare the contrary state of unbelieving, the heart being in fault (Eph 4:18; Mt 13:15). Translate, "Having the eyes of your heart enlightened" (Eph 5:14; Mt 4:16). The first effect of the Spirit moving in the new creation, as in the original physical creation (Ge 1:3; 2Co 4:6). So THEOPHILUS to AUTOLYCUS (1.3), "the ears of the heart." Where spiritual light is, there is life (Joh 1:4). The heart is "the core of life" [HARLESS], and the fountain of the thoughts; whence "the heart" in Scripture includes the mind, as well as the inclination. Its "eye," or inward vision, both receives and contemplates the light (Mt 6:22, 23). The eye is the symbol of intelligence (Eze 1:18).
1 Tim 6:16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom [be] honour and power everlasting. Amen
2 Tim 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel
2 Peter

1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake [as they were] moved by the Holy Ghost.

1 John 

1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Rev 22:1-6
22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, [was there] the tree of life, which bare twelve [manner of] fruits, [and] yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree [were] for the healing of the nations.

22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name [shall be] in their foreheads.

22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

22:6 And he said unto me, These sayings [are] faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
