Section 10, Chapters 90 Thru 96
What Is Truth?
1. AGAIN the twelve were gathered together in the circle of palm trees, and one of them, even Thomas, said to the other, “What is Truth? For the same things appear different to different minds, and even to the same mind at different times. What, then, is Truth?”
2. And as they were speaking Yahshúa appeared in their midst and said, “Truth, one and absolute, is in ELOHÍYM alone, for no man, neither anybody of men, knows that which ELOHÍYM alone knows, who is the All in All. To men is Truth revealed, according to their capacity to understand and receive.
3. The One Truth has many sides, and one sees one side only, another sees another, and some see more than others, according as it is given to them.
4. Behold this crystal: how the one light its manifest in twelve faces, yea four times twelve, and each face reflects one ray of light, and one regards one face, and another, another, but it is the one crystal and the one light that shines in all.
5. Behold again: When one climbs a mountain and attaining one height, he said, This is the top of the mountain, let us reach it, and when they have reached that height, lo, they see another beyond it until they come to that height from which no other height is to be seen, if so be they can attain it.
6. So it is with Truth. I am the Truth and the Way and the Life and have given to you the Truth I have received from above. And that which is seen and received by one, is not seen and received by another. That which appears true to some, seems not true to others. They who are in the valley see not as those who are on the hilltop.
7. But to each, it is the Truth as the one mind sees it, and for that time, till a higher Truth shall be revealed to the same: and to the soul which receives higher light, shall more light be given. Wherefore, condemn not others, that ye be not condemned.
8. As ye keep the Holy Toráh of Love, which I have given to you, so shall the Truth be revealed more and more to you, and the Spirit of Truth which comes from above shall guide you, albeit through many wanderings, into all Truth, even as the fiery cloud guided the children of Yisraél through the wilderness.
9. Be faithful to the light ye have, till a higher light is given to you. Seek more light, and ye shall have abundantly; rest not, till ye find.
10. ELOHÍYM gives you all Truth, as a ladder with many steps, for the salvation and perfection of the soul, and the truth which seems today, ye will abandon for the higher truth of the morrow. Press ye to Perfection.
11. Whoso keeps the Holy Toráh which I have given, the same shall save their souls, however differently they may see the truths which I have given.
12. Many shall say to me, ‘Master, Master, we have been zealous for your Truth. But I shall say to them, ‘Nay, but, that others may see as ye see, and none other truth beside. Faith without love is dead. Love is the fulfilling of the Toráh.
13. How shall faith in what they receive profit them that hold it in unrighteousness? They who have love have all things, and without love there is nothing of worth. Let each hold what they see to be the truth in love, knowing that where love is not, truth is a dead letter and profits nothing.
14. There abide Goodness, and Truth, and Beauty, but the greatest of these is Goodness. If any have hatred to their fellows, and harden their hearts to the creatures of ELOHÍYM’s hands, how can they see Truth to salvation, seeing their eyes are blinded and their hearts are hardened to ELOHÍYM’s creation?
15. As I have received the Truth, so have I given it to you. Let each receive it according to their light and ability to understand and persecute not those who receive it after a different interpretation.
16. For Truth is the Might of ELOHÍYM, and it shall prevail in the end over all errors. But the Holy Toráh which I have given is plain for all, and just and good. Let all observe it for the salvation of their souls.”
The Order of the Kingdom (Part I)
1. In that time after Yahshúa had risen from the dead, he tarried ninety days with Mariám his mother and Mariám Magdalena, who anointed his body, and Mariám Cleophas and the twelve, and their fellows, instructing them and answering questions concerning the kingdom of ELOHÍYM.
2. And as they sat at supper—when it was evening— Mariám Magdalena asked him, saying, “Master, will you now declare to us the Order of the Kingdom?”
3. And Yahshúa answered and said, “Truly I say to you, O Mariám, and to each of my disciples, The kingdom of Heaven is within you. But the time comes when that which is within shall be made manifest in the without, for the sake of the world.
4. Order indeed is good, and needful, but before all things is love. Love ye one another and all the creatures of ELOHÍYM, and by this shall all men know that ye are my disciples.”
5.AND one asked him, saying, “Master, do you desire that infants be received into the congregation in like manner as Moshéh commanded by circumcision?” And Yahshúa answered, “For those who are in Mashíakh there is no cutting of the flesh, nor shedding of blood.
6. Let the infant of eight days be presented to the Father-Mother, who is in Heaven, with prayer and thanksgiving, and let a name be given to it by its parents, and let the presbyter sprinkle pure water upon it, according to that which is written in the prophets, and let its parents see to it that it is brought up in the ways of righteousness, neither eating flesh, nor drinking strong drink, nor hurting the creatures which ELOHÍYM has given into the hands of man to protect.”
7. AGAIN one said to him, “Master, how do you desire when they grow up?” And Yahshúa said, “After seven years, or when they begin to know the evil from the good, and learn to choose the good, let them come to me and receive the blessing at the hands of the Presbyter [Elder] or the Angel [Bishop–Paqid] of the Assembly with prayer and thanksgiving, and let them be admonished to keep from flesh eating and strong drink, and from hunting the innocent creatures of ELOHÍYM, for shall they be lower than the horse or the sheep to whom these things are against nature?”
8. And again he said, “If there come to us any that eat flesh and drink strong drink, shall we receive them?” And Yahshúa said to him, “Let such abide in the outer court till they cleanse themselves from these grosser evils; for till they perceive, and repent of these, they are not fit to receive the higher mysteries.”
9. AND another asked him, saying, “When do you desire that they receive Baptism?” And Yahshúa answered, “After another seven years, or when they know the doctrine, and do that which is good, and learn to work with their own hands, and choose a craft whereby they may live, and are steadfastly set on the right way. Then let them ask for initiation, and let the Angel or Presbyter of the Assembly examine them and see if they are worthy, and let him offer thanksgiving and prayer, and bury them in the waters of separation, that they may rise to newness of life, confessing ELOHÍYM as their Father and Mother, vowing to obey the Holy Toráh, and keep themselves separate from the evil in the world.”
10. AND another asked him, “Master, at what time shall they receive the Anointing?” And Yahshúa answered, “When they have reached the age of maturity, and manifested in themselves the sevenfold gifts of the Spirit, then let the Angel offer prayer and thanksgiving and seal them with the seal of the Chrism. It is good that all be tried in each degree seven years. Nevertheless, let it be to each according to their growth in the love, and the wisdom of ELOHÍYM.
The Order of the Kingdom (Part II)
1. AND another asked him, saying, “Master, do you desire that there be marriages among us as it is among the nations of earth?” And Yahshúa answered, saying, “Among some it is the custom that one woman may marry several men, who shall say to her, ‘Be you our wife and take away our reproach.’ Among others it is the custom, that one man may marry several women, and who shall say to him, ‘Be you our husband and take away our reproach’ for they who love feel it is a reproach to be unloved.
2. But to you my disciples, I show a better and more perfect way, even this, that marriage should be between one man and one woman, who by perfect love and sympathy are united, and that while love and life do last, howbeit in perfect freedom. But let them see to it that they have perfect health, and that they truly love each other in all purity, and not for worldly advantage only, and then let them betroth one to another before witnesses.
3. Then, when the time is come, let the Angel or Presbyter offer prayer and thanksgiving and bind them with the scarlet cord, if ye will, and crown them, and lead them thrice around the altar and let them eat of one bread and drink of one cup. Then holding their hands together, let him say to them in this wise, ‘Be ye two in one, blessed be the holy union, you whom Elohíym does join together let no man put asunder, so long as life and love do last.’
4.And if they bear children, let them do so with discretion and prudence according to their ability to maintain them. Nevertheless to those who would be perfect and to whom it is given, I say, let them be as the Angels of ELOHÍYM in Heaven, who neither marry nor are given in marriage, nor have children, nor care for the morrow, but are free from bonds, even as I am, and keep and store up the power of ELOHÍYM within, for their ministry, and for works of healing, even as I have done. But the many cannot receive this saying, only they to whom it is given.”
5. AND another asked him, saying, “Master, in what manner shall we offer the Holy Oblation?” And Yahshúa answered, saying, “The oblation which ELOHÍYM loves in secret is a pure heart. But for a Memorial of worship offer ye unleavened bread, mingled wine, oil and incense. When ye come together in one place to offer the Holy Oblation, the lamps being lighted, let him who presides, even the Angel of the Assembly, or the Presbyter, having clean hands and a pure heart, take from the things offered, unleavened bread and mingled wine with incense.
6. And let him give thanks over them and bless them, calling upon the Father-Mother in Heaven to send their Ruach ha’Qodesh that it may come upon and make them to be the Body and Blood, even the Substance and Life of the Eternal, which is ever being broken and shed for all.
7. And let him lift it up toward Heaven and pray for all, even for those who are gone before, for those who are yet alive, and for those who are yet to come. As I have taught you, so pray ye, and after this let him break the bread and put a fragment in the cup, and then bless the holy union, and then let him give to the faithful, saying after this manner, This is the body of the Mashíakh even the substance of ELOHÍYM (ever being broken and shed, for you and for all), to eternal life. As ye have seen me do, so do ye also, in the spirit of love, for the words I speak to you, they are spirit and they are life.”
The Order of the Kingdom (Part III)
1. AND another spoke, saying, “Master, if one has committed a sin, can a man remit or retain his sin?” And Yahshúa said, “ELOHÍYM forgives all sin to those who repent, but as ye sow, so also must ye reap; Neither ELOHÍYM nor man can remit the sins of those who do not repent nor forsake their sins; nor yet retain the sins of those who forsake them. But if one being in the spirit sees clearly that any repent and forsake their sins, such may truly say to the penitent, Your sins are forgiven you, for all sin is remitted by repentance and amendment and they are loosed from it, who forsake it and bound to it, who continue it.
2. Nevertheless the fruits of the sin must continue for a season, for as we sow so must we reap, for ELOHÍYM is not mocked, and they who sow to the flesh shall reap corruption, they who sow to the spirit shall reap life, everlasting. Wherefore, if any forsake their sins and confess them, let the Presbyter say to such in this wise, ‘May ELOHÍYM forgive you your sins, and bring you to everlasting life. All sin against ELOHÍYM is forgiven by ELOHÍYM, and sin against man by man.”
3. AND another asked him, saying, “If any be sick among us, shall we have power to heal even as you do?” And Yahshúa answered, “This power comes of perfect chastity and of faith. They who are born of ELOHÍYM keep their seed within them.
4. Nevertheless, if any be sick among you, let them send for the Presbyters of the Assembly that they may anoint them with oil of olive in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith, and the going out of power, with the voice of thanksgiving, shall raise them up, if they are not detained by sin, of this, or a former life.”
5. AND another asked him, saying, “Master, how shall the Holy Assembly be ordered and who shall minister therein?” And Yahshúa answered, “When my disciples are gathered in my name let them choose from among themselves true and faithful men and women, who shall be ministers and counselors in temporal things and provide for the necessities of the poor, and those who cannot work, and let these look to the ordering of the goods of the Assembly, and assist at the Oblation, and let these be your deacons, with their helps.
6. And when these have given proof, of their ministry, let them choose from them, those who have spiritual gifts, whether of guidance, or of prophecy, or of preaching and of teaching and healing, that they may edify the flock, offer the holy Oblation and minister the mysteries of ELOHÍYM and let these be your Presbyter, and their helps.
7. And from these who have served well in their degree let one be chosen who is counted most worthy and let him preside over all and he shall be your Angel. And let the Angel ordain the Deacons and consecrate the Presbyters—anoint them and laying their hands upon them and breathing upon them that they may receive the Ruach ha’Qodesh for the office to which they are called. And as for the Angel, let one of the higher ministry anoint and consecrate him, even one of the Supreme Council.
8. For as I send Apostles and Prophets, so also I send Evangelists and Pastors—the eight and forty pillars of the tabernacle—that by the ministry of the four, I may build up and perfect my Assembly, and they shall sit in Jerusalem a holy congregation, each with his helper and deacon, and to them shall the scattered congregations refer in all matters pertaining to the Assembly. And as light comes, so shall they rule and guide and edify and teach my holy Assembly. They shall receive light from all, and to all shall they give more light.
9. And forget not with your prayers and supplications intercessions and giving of thanks, to offer the incense, as it is written in the last of your prophets, saying, ‘From the rising of the sun to the setting of the same, incense shall be offered to My name in all places with a pure oblation, for My Name shall be great among the Nations’.
10. For truly I say to you, incense is the memorial of the intercession of the saints within the veil, with words that cannot be uttered.” [Or, that cannot be articulated in common speech.]
The Order of the Kingdom (Part IV)
1. AND another asked him, saying, “Master, how will you that we bury our dead?” And Yahshúa answered, “Seek ye council of the Deacons in this matter, for it concerns the body only. Truly, I say to you, there is no death to those who believe in the life to come. Death, as ye deemed it, is the door to life, and the grave is the gate to resurrection, for those who believe and obey. Mourn ye not, nor weep for them that have left you, but rather rejoice for their entrance into life.
2. As all creatures come forth from the unseen into this world, so they return to the unseen, and so will they come again till they be purified. Let the bodies of them that depart be committed to the elements, and the Father-Mother, who renews all things, shall give the Angels charge over them, and let the Presbyter pray that their bodies may rest in peace, and their souls awake to a joyful resurrection.
3. There is a resurrection from the body, and there is a resurrection in the body. There is a raising out of the life of the flesh, and there is a falling into the life of the flesh. Let prayer be made for those who are gone before, and for those that are alive, and for those that are yet to come, for all are One family in ELOHÍYM. In ELOHÍYM they live and move and have their being.
4. The body that ye lay in the grave, or that is consumed by fire, is not the body that shall be, but they who come shall receive other bodies, yet their own, and as they have sown in one life, so shall they reap in another. Blessed are they who have worked righteousness in this life, for they shall receive the crown of life.”
5. AND another asked him, saying, “Master, under the Toráh, Moshéh clothed the priests with garments of beauty for their ministration in the Miqdásh. Shall we also clothe them to whom we commit the ministry of sacred things as you have taught us?” And Yahshúa answered, “White linen is the righteousness of the Saints, but the time truly comes when Tzión shall be desolate, and after the time of her affliction is past, she shall arise and put on her beautiful garments, as it is written.
6. But seek ye first the kingdom of righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. In all things seek simplicity and give not occasion to vain glory. Seek ye first to be clothed with charity, and the garment of salvation and the robe of righteousness.
7. For what does it profit if ye have not these? As the sound of brass and tinkling of cymbal are ye, if ye have not love. Seek ye righteousness and love and peace, and all things of beauty shall be added to you.”
8. AND yet another asked him, saying, “Master, how many of the rich and mighty will enter into life and join us who are poor and despised. How, then, shall we carry on the work of ELOHÍYM in the regeneration of mankind?” And Yahshúa said, “This also is a matter for the Deacons of the Assembly in council with the Elders.
9. But when my disciples are come together on the Shabbath at evening or in the morning of the first day of the week, let them each bring an offering of a tithe, or the tithe of a tithe of their increase, as ELOHÍYM does prosper them, and put it in the treasury, for the maintenance of the Assembly and the ministry, and the works thereof. For I say to you, it is more blessed to give than to receive.
10. So shall all things be done, decently and in order. And the rest the Spirit will set in order who proceeds from the Father-Mother in heaven. I have instructed you now in first principles, and, lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the Age.
1. AND Yahshúa, after he had showed himself alive to his disciples after his resurrection, and sojourned with them for ninety days1)This may refer to “[the] ninety days” or the 3-months of the spring season, that begins with the spring equinox (March 21st) and ends with the summer solstice (June 21st)., teaching and speaking of the Kingdom and the things pertaining to the Kingdom of ELOHÍYM, and had finished all things that he had to do, led forth the Twelve with Mariám Magdalena and Yoseph his father and Mariám his mother, and the other holy women as far as Bethany to a mountain called Olivet, where he had appointed them.
2. And when they saw him as he stood amid them, they worshipped him, but some doubted. And Yahshúa spoke to them, saying, “Behold, I have chosen you from among men, and have given you the Toráh and the Word of Truth.
3. I have set you as the light of the world, and as a city that cannot be hid. But the time comes when darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people, and the enemies of truth and righteousness shall rule in my name, and set up a kingdom of this world, and oppress the peoples, and cause the enemy to blaspheme, putting for my doctrines the opinions of men, and teaching in my name that which I have not taught, and darkening much that I have taught by their traditions.
4. But be of good cheer, for the time will also come when the truth they have hidden shall be manifested, and the light shall shine, and the darkness shall pass away, and the true kingdom shall be established which shall be in the world, but not of it, and the Word of righteousness and love shall go forth from the Center, even the holy city of Mount Tzión, and the Mount which is in the land of Egypt shall be known as an altar of witness to YHWH.
5.And now I go to my Parent and your Parent, my ELOHÍYM and your ELOHÍYM. But ye, tarry in Jerusalem, and abide in prayer, and after seven days ye shall receive power from on high, and the promise of the Ruach ha’Qodesh shall be fulfilled to you, and ye shall go forth from Jerusalem to all the Tribes of Yisraél, and to the uttermost parts of the earth.”
6. And having said these things, he lifted his pure and holy hands and blessed them. And it came to pass that while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and a cloud, as the sun in brightness, received him out of their sight, and as he went up some held him by the feet and others worshipped him, falling to the earth on their faces.
7. And while they gazed steadfastly into heaven, behold two stood by them in white apparel, and said, “Ye men of Yisraél, why stand ye gazing into the heaven; this same Yahshúa who is taken from you in a cloud, and as ye have seen him go into heaven, so shall he come again to the earth.”
8. Then they returned to Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, which is a Sabbath day’s journey from the city. And as they returned, they missed Mariám Magdalena, and they looked for her, but found her not. And some of the disciples said, “The Master has taken her, and they marveled and were in great awe.”
9. Now it was midsummer when Yahshúa ascended into heaven, and he had not yet attained his fiftieth year, for it was needful that [the] ‘seven times seven years’ should be fulfilled in his life.2)Yahshúa died in the midst of the final seven-year period of Daniel 9:24-27. There it is stated that “Seven Sevens are determined upon your people and upon the qodesh city [Jerusalem]. “Seven Sevens” means 7-Weeks of Years, which equals 490 years. After 6-Weeks of Years (483 Years) a final 7-year window would open. In this window, Messiah would be anointed, as well as, be “cut off” (killed). The last seven of the sevens was fulfilled in his life. The six matters to be accomplished in that time frame were accomplished through his life, death, and resurrection. One will also see another allusion from Daniel 9:27, “in the midst of the week”. Noting that there are four levels of interpretation recognized in Judaism, each one legitimate within its own parameters, not only was this in the midst of the final seven years, he died on Wednesday, the midst of the seven-day Biblical week. See GHT 82:32. See also, our exposition of Daniel 9:24-27 in our writing, called, “New Covenant Israel: The Transitional Generation-From Promise to Reality”. Yahshúa was 43 years old when he died, according to GHT. This would be “within” or “in the midst of” the final 7-year window. (Counting from the starting point of the 490 years, the decree of Cyrus in 457 BC. See our chart.
10. Yea [also], that he might be perfected by the suffering of all experiences, and be an example to all, to children and parents, to the married and the celibates, to youth and those of full age, yea, and to all ages and conditions of mortal life.
The Pouring Out of The Spirit
1. AND as the disciples were gathered together in the upper room when they returned from the Mount, they all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, and their number was about one hundred and twenty.
2. And in that day, Ya’aqóḅ stood up and said; “Men and brethren, it is known to you how the Master, before he left us, chose Kepha to preside over us and watch over us in his name; and how it is necessary that one of those who have been with us and a witness to his resurrection be chosen and appointed to take his place.
3. And they chose two, called Barsabas and Matthias, and they prayed and said, “You YHWH, who knows the hearts of all men, show which of these two you have chosen to take part in this Apostleship from which you do raise your servant Kepha to preside over us.”
4. And they gave forth their lots, and the lot fell upon Matthias, and the Twelve received him, and he was numbered among the Apostles.
5. Then Yoḥanan and Ya’aqóḅ separated Kepha from their number by laying on of hands, that he might preside over them in the name of the Master, saying, “Brother, be you as a hewn stone, six-squared. Even you, Petros, which are Petra, bearing witness to the Truth on every side.”
6. And to the Apostles were given staffs to guide their steps in the ways of truth, and crowns of glory withal; and to the Prophets burning lamps to show light on the path and censers with fire; and to the Evangelists the Book of the Holy Toráh to recall the people to the first principles; and to the Pastors were given the cup and platter to feed and nourish the flock.
7. But to none was given anything that was not given to all, for all were one priesthood under the Mashíakh, as their Master, Great High Priest in the Miqdásh of ELOHÍYM; and to the Deacons were given baskets that they might carry therein the things needful for the holy worship. And the number was about one hundred and twenty, Kepha presiding over them.
8. AND when the third day had fully come, they were all with one accord in the one place, and as they prayed, there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and the room in which they were assembled was shaken, and it filled the place.
9. And there appeared cloven tongues of flame like fire and sat upon the head of each of them. And they were all filled with the Ruach ha’Qodesh and began to speak with tongues as the Ruach gave them utterance. And Kepha stood up and preached the Toráh of Mashíakh to the multitude of all nations and tongues who were gathered together by the report of what had been seen and heard, each man hearing in his own tongue wherein he was born.
10. And of them that listened there were gathered to the Assembly that day, three thousand souls, and they received the Holy Toráh, repented of their sins, and were baptized and continued steadfastly in the Apostles’ fellowship and worship, and the Oblation and prayers.
11. And they who believed gave up their possessions and had all things in common and abode together in one place, showing the love and the goodness of ELOHÍYM to their brothers and sisters and to all creatures, and working with their hands for the common good.
12. And from these there were called twelve to be Prophets with the Apostles, and twelve to be Evangelists and twelve to be Pastors, and their Helps were added to them, and Deacons of the Universal Assembly, and they numbered one hundred and twenty. And thus, was the Tabernacle of Dawíd set up, with living men filled with goodness, even as the Master had shown to them.
13. The Assembly in Jerusalem was given Ya’aqóḅ, the brother of the Master for its President and Angel, and under him four and twenty priests in a fourfold ministry, and helpers and deacons also. And after six days many came together, and there were added six thousand men and women who received the holy Toráh of Love, and they received the word with gladness.
14. AND as they gathered together on the Day of the Master after the Sabbath was past, and were offering the holy Oblation, they missed Mariám and Yoséph, the parents of Yahshúa. And they made search but did not find them.
15. And some of them said, “Surely the Master has taken them away, as he did Magdalena. And they were filled with awe and sung praises to ELOHÍYM.” 16. And the Ruach of ELOHÍYM came upon the Apostles and the Prophets with them and, remembering what the Master had taught them, with one voice they confessed and praised ELOHÍYM, saying:
17.“We believe in One ELOHÍYM:
the Infinite, the Secret Fount, the Eternal Parent:
Of Whom are all things invisible and visible: The ALL in all, through all around all:
The Holy Two, in whom all things consist; Who has been, Who is, Who shall be.
18. We believe in one Master, the perfect holy Mashíakh [Anointed]:
ELOHÍYM of [the] ELOHÍYM, light of light begotten.
Our Master—the Father, Spouse and Son.
Our Lady—the Mother, Bride and Daughter.
Three Modes in one Essence undivided: One Biune Triad:
That ELOHÍYM may be manifest as the Father, Spouse and Son of every Soul:
and that every soul may be perfected as the Mother, Bride and Daughter of ELOHÍYM.
19. And this by ascent of the soul into the Ruach and the descent of the Ruach into the Soul;
Who came from heaven, and was incarnate of the virgin
[after coming together with her husband Yoséph], ever blessed,
in the Master Yahshúa (and every Mashíakh of ELOHÍYM);
and was born and teaches the Way of Life and suffered under the world rulers,
and was crucified, and buried and descended into She’ol;
Who rose again and ascended into glory; from thence giving light and life to all.
20. We believe in the Sevenfold Ruach of ELOHÍYM, the Life-Giver;
Who proceeds from the holy Two. Who came upon Yahshúa and all that are faithful
to the light within; Who dwells in the Assembly, the Yisraél, elect of ELOHÍYM;
Who comes ever into the world and lights every soul that seeks;
Who gives the Toráh which judges the living and the dead;
Who speaks by the Prophets of every age and clime.
21. We believe in One Holy Universal and Apostolic Assembly;
the Witness to all truth, the Receiver and Giver of the same; Begotten of the Spirit
and Fire of ELOHÍYM; Nourished by the waters, seeds and fruits of earth;
Who by the Spirit of Life, her twelve Books and Sacraments, her holy words and works,
knit together the elect in one mystical communion and atone humanity with ELOHÍYM,
Making us partakers of the Divine Life and Substance; betokening the same in holy Symbols.
22. And we look for the coming of the Universal Mashíakh; and the Kingdom of Heaven
wherein dwells righteousness; And the holy City whose gates are Twelve
wherein are the Miqdash and Altar of ELOHÍYM; Whence proceeds three Orders
in fourfold ministry: to teach all truth and offer the daily sacrifice of praise.
23. As in the inner so in the outer; as in the great so in the small;
As above, so below; as in heaven so in earth.
We believe in the Purification of the soul through many births and experiences,
The Resurrection from the dead and the Life everlasting of the just,
the Ages of Ages, and Rest in ELOHÍYM for ever. —Amein.”
24. And as the smoke of the incense arose, there was heard the sound as of many bells, and a multitude of the heavenly host praising ELOHÍYM and saying:
25. “Glory, honour, praise, and worship be to ELOHÍYM; the Father, Spouse, and Son: One with the Mother, Bride and Maid: From Whom proceeds the Eternal Spirit; By whom are all created things. From the Ages of Ages. Now and to the Ages of Ages—Amein—HalleluYah, HalleluYah, HalleluYah.”
26. And if any man take from, or add, to the words of this Gospel, or hide, as under a bushel, the light thereof, which is given by the Ruach through us, the twelve witnesses chosen of ELOHÍYM, for the enlightenment of the world to salvation: Let him be Anathema Maranatha, until the coming of Mashíakh Yahshu-Maryá, our Saviour, with all the Holy Saints [Qedoshim].
27. For them that believe, these things are true. For them that believe not, they are as an idle tale. But to those with perceiving minds and hearts, regarding the spirit rather than the letter which kills, they are spiritual truths.
28. For the things that are written are true, not because they are written, but rather they are written because they are true, and these are written that ye may believe with your hearts and proclaim with your mouths to the salvation of many. Amein.
Here ends the Holy Gospel of the Perfect Life of Yahshu-Marya, the Mashíakh, the Son of Dawíd after the Flesh, the Son of Elohíym after the Spirit. Glory be to Elohíym by Whose power and help it has been written.
THE END OF SECTION 10

|↑2||Yahshúa died in the midst of the final seven-year period of Daniel 9:24-27. There it is stated that “Seven Sevens are determined upon your people and upon the qodesh city [Jerusalem]. “Seven Sevens” means 7-Weeks of Years, which equals 490 years. After 6-Weeks of Years (483 Years) a final 7-year window would open. In this window, Messiah would be anointed, as well as, be “cut off” (killed). The last seven of the sevens was fulfilled in his life. The six matters to be accomplished in that time frame were accomplished through his life, death, and resurrection. One will also see another allusion from Daniel 9:27, “in the midst of the week”. Noting that there are four levels of interpretation recognized in Judaism, each one legitimate within its own parameters, not only was this in the midst of the final seven years, he died on Wednesday, the midst of the seven-day Biblical week. See GHT 82:32. See also, our exposition of Daniel 9:24-27 in our writing, called, “New Covenant Israel: The Transitional Generation-From Promise to Reality”. Yahshúa was 43 years old when he died, according to GHT. This would be “within” or “in the midst of” the final 7-year window.
