“And Enoch walked with God: and he [was] not; for God took him”
What does this mean: And Enoch walked with God…
Do you imagine walking with God in a garden like the Garden of Eden or do you imagine walking in Heaven side by side with a long bearded man in a white gown who has his arm flung around your shoulder as you share banter about the universe and past aeons. If you have taken some time to read the bible you will appreciate the image of God as an old man with long white hair who is like Gandalf the wizard is a fallacy. The idea of God isn’t as a HE but also as a SHE or a THEM.
So whom or what exactly is God. Do we not need to understand what God IS before we can “walk” with God in all the glory that we were meant to?
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Heaven (disambiguation) can mean sky. From a classical element aspect the sky can represent the AIR because the sky is defined by air. Similarly EARTH expressed in lowercase can mean matter (particles) or general terrain (land).
Both heaven and earth or AIR and EARTH are created simultaneously, however, the creation of AIR and EARTH cannot happen without FIRE and WATER. Therefore, God in this instant defines the preexisting principles of FIRE and WATER. This is the basis for androgynous existence, i.e. God defines the biological foundation of DNA BASE “PAIRS”.
Text in the bible supports God as a THEM and not just as a HE:
Genesis 1 26: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Genesis 1: 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
The terms “us”, “our” and “them” are plural which means this man that God made is composed of more than one set or kind. This original man is also made in the image and likeness of God which means God is composed of more than one set or kind.
You may think the above verses chronicle the creation of Adam and Eve but they don’t, rather, this is the creation of a man-god because a man or a woman in the sense of a “human” is NOT simultaneously male and female or a THEM but is EITHER a male or female. Look at Genesis chapter 5:
Genesis 5: 2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
An original man was created both male and female… and God blessed “them” and called “their” name ADAM… God did not bless them and call their name Adam and Eve. The crafting of Adam (from preexisting dust) and of Eve from Adams (rib)osome is documented in Genesis 2:7. However the creation of man in Genesis chapter two is a doppelganger creation by a LORD or ruling God.
If you have read my previous post HERE you’ll appreciate that I see God and the bible as Mandelbrot sets or byte sized information sources that have unfolded from the imagination of an infinite intelligence that is YOU… or collectively US. They contain truth about the entire whole. God is not the whole truth. God is the expressive star-child of an everlasting awareness that is the inner universe or the eternal subconscious. God is a creation.
The reason “out there” is so messed up is so that YOU can experience something you are not… life is a reflection of something that you are not and it is this reflection that defines the yin from the yang, the dancer from the shadow, the words from the author, the sounds from the composer. You are not the reflection… you are what is being reflected. There is a fundamental difference. One is real… one is imaginary.
When you understand that God (who epitomizes love) unfolds from your imagination you will realize that Love IS the heart and soul of you. To walk with God is to walk in the true nature of your-self and walk in Love… it is to be in Love with everything and everyone – it is to Love in every action and deed, to Love in every word and moment, to Love in every thought with passion.
To walk with God you must live and breathe the virtues of your true self and extend to every being of light unconditional compassion, understanding, humility, forgiveness, patience and integrity. Only then will you be wearing God’s armor. There is no other way. No other savior. Only you.
“Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
This is the time you have been waiting for. Walk with God… walk in Love and be your true self. See yourself. You are beautiful and it is this beauty that is once again rising to reclaim what belongs in paradise.
