The Bible and Chinese
Friday, June 29th, 2012
CHINESE WORDS ARE PICTORIAL AND WERE ABLE TO RECORD IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND DOCUMENTED MAJOR HISTORICAL EVENTS (E.G. THE CREATION STORY, THE TEMPTATION, THE FALL OF MAN, THE FLOOD, THE TOWER OF BABEL, THE GREAT MIGRATION OF THE ANCIENT TIMES). THESE CHARACTERS INSCRIBE OUR ORAL TRADITIONS, CUSTOMS & BELIEF SYSTEM & PRACTICES SINCE 2500 BC. THE CHINESE AND THE JEWS HAVE THE OLDEST ENDURING CIVILIZATION AND 4500 YEARS OF UNBROKEN HISTORY. THE FOLLOWING TRACT ENHANCE OUR SPIRITUAL JOURNEY FROM CROSSING THE ‘RED SEA’ OF COMING TO KNOW JESUS, THE WILDERNESS EXPERIENCE OF KNOWING THE PERFECT LAWS AND THE IMPERFECT ME, CROSSING THE ‘RIVER JORDAN’ OF DEATH TO ENTER INTO THE PROMISED LAND OF REST. WE MUST BE BORN AGAIN OF WATER & THE SPIRIT TO SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
CHINESE AND THE BIBLE WHO ARE WE? (OUR BODY, SOUL & SPIRIT )
BLESSING 福 = FIRST MAN ADAM 一 口 WITH GOD ネ IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN 田BLESSING is more than money & prosperity. BLESSING is a relationship with the Creator God.
PROHIBIT 禁 = GOD PROHIBIT 示 THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD & EVIL 木 before Adam fell because he had the creative power of the spoken words just like God & GOD PROHIBIT THE TREE OF LIFE 木 after Adam fell in the Garden of Eden.
TEMPTATION 婪 = THE WOMAN 女 disbelieved God’s Words and fell for THE TEMPTATION to be like God by eating of THE FRUIT (果) OF THE TREE 木 of KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD & EVIL. Adam & Eve committed the high treason & surrendered the dominance of the world to Satan.
GARDEN OF EDEN 田 =THE 2nd HEAVEN, MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD, Adam had dominance & management over the whole world (Now our 90% ‘FORBIDDEN PSYCHIC MIND’ where we can still gain the whole world but loss our entire soul to Satan-The Old Serpent. Satan has captured this Spiritual Garden from Adam & ruled over the world as ‘GOD OF THIS WORLD.
DEVIL 鬼 =THE OLD SERPENT ø CAPTURED THE GARDEN 田 BELONGING TO MAN 人 & Controlling Man with his SECRET SINS ム
SATAN became ‘THE GOD OF THIS WORLD’, his power is stolen from our ‘FORBIDDEN PSYCHIC WORLD’ made in the IMAGE OF GOD, Satan blinded our entire soul by speaking LIES, GREED, LUST, HIGH THOUGHTS & IMAGINATIONS to our limited 5% LEFT BRAIN (I.Q.) & limited 5% RIGHT BRAIN (E.Q.). He creates RELIGIONS that our fallen nature cannot perform & he condemns us with guilt, dis-cease, fear resulting in sicknesses, death & our eternal separation from our Heavenly Father.
CHANGE 化 = OUR ‘OLD SPIRIT MAN’ 亻must DIE 七 & the soul circumcise before all things become new. Jesus is The Way. All our sins have been transferred by laying of hands by JOHN THE BAPTIST to THE ‘LAMB OF GOD’, Our Spirit unite by faith with JESUS into his BAPTISM in the River Jordan. Heaven open up & the Holy Spirit descended upon Jesus. We are born again of WATER & THE SPIRIT (JOHN 3.5). We rise up SINLESS & RIGHTEOUS & receive THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. 2COR.5.17 ‘Therefore, if anyone is ‘IN CHRIST’, he is a NEW CREATION, the OLD has gone, the NEW has come.’
The Gospel Journey starts from the River Jordan, as we are united by faith ‘IN CHRIST’ in his Baptism, we also walk in Him and He suffered for us. By His stripes, we are healed. We joined ‘In Him’ by faith on the cross & our WAGES OF SINS were paid perfectly by His death on the cross. We are raised with Him & now we are seated with him at God’s right hand & reign with Him. As He is, so are we in this world.
SOUL 魂 =DEVIL 鬼 SPEAKING 云 LIES, GREEDS, LUST, FEAR, UNBELIEF, HIGH THOUGHTS, & IMAGINATIONS INTO OUR MIND. Our DEFENCE is THE WORD OF GOD.
THE SOUL 魂 =OUR PERSONALITY, THE LITTLE UNIVERSE WITHIN US, CONSISTS OF;
THE ‘WILL DOOR’=GOD GAVE US A FREE WILL TO CHOOSE, We must be willing to reconcile with our Heavenly Father, accepting The WAY of Water (JESUS’ Baptism) to transfer & eradicate sins, the TRUTH of the His Blood in over payment for the wages of all our sins and the LIFE of the Spirit. We can only enter into GOD’S presence & His KINGDOM SINLESS & RIGHTEOUS as His children.
THE 5% LEFT BRAIN I.Q. =INTELLECT, WORDS, SEEING, REASONINGS, LOGIC, FACTS, REALITY, PRACTICALITY, SAFETY, EARTHLY. Also known as The ‘SPIRITUAL WILDERNESS’, Our words have no more impact like GOD, we cannot see THE SPIRITUAL WORLD & GOD is LIGHT (SPEED OF LIGHT>300,000Km Per Sec.). GOD have to use ‘IS-REAL’ as our Spiritual Actors. HISTORY IS HIS STORY – THE STORY OF JESUS.
LIGHT 光 =UPRIGHT MAN 人 WORSHIPPING WITH 2 HANDS \ / (Modify to 一) THE FATHER, SON-JESUS & THE HOLY SPIRIT ⺌
THE 5% RIGHT BRAIN E.Q. = EMOTION, FEELING, IMAGINATION, FANTASY, IMPETUOUS, RISK TAKING, SYMBOLS, BELIEVE, PERCEIVE, RELIGIOUS, THE HELL GATE =Men cannot enter into this ADAM LOST PARADISE siege & controlled by Satan & Satan cannot come out to our soul unless we invoke him to gain access to this PYSCHIC WORLD in order to gain power & the whole world.
CONSCIENCE= SELF & SINS CONSCIOUSNESS, KNOWING THE PERFECT LAWS OF RIGHTS & WRONG, the perfect RELIGIOUS LAWS impute guilt from our imperfect actions & fallen nature. The guilt cause condemnation, stress & dis-cease (疾 病) within & cause the blood’s DNAs to punish the body from within. The PERFECT LAWS are holy, just & given to Moses on MOUNT SINAI to point to our sinful fallen nature & the need of dependency on our Savior God.
RIGHTEOUSNESS 義 = THE LAMB OF GOD 羊 COVER OVER ME 我 THE LAMB OF GOD/GOD IN HUMAN FLESH-JESUS, took away all my sins through JOHN’S BAPTISM in the River Jordan & paid for them perfectly on the cross. (ME 我 IS A HAND 手 HOLDING A SWORD 戈). The SPIRITUAL WARFARE is within us in the mind. We are all born sinners because of Adam & sinners sin. We must accept & believe we are made SINLESS & RIGHTEOUS by JESUS’ finish work of Baptism, dying as our sins payment & resurrection for our eternal life.
JESUS CONSCIOUSNESS=RIGHT BELIEVING & A PERFECT CONSCIENCE, the Gospel started with JOHN passing on all our sins to ‘God in the Human Flesh.’ In the River Jordan, we entered into JESUS’ BAPTISM (as NOAH & his family of 8 perfect human beings entered into THE ARK) in the death of the FIRST WORLD-The DEATH OF Our SOUL & SINS CONSCIOUSNESS. THE ‘OLD MAN’ & THE OLD SOUL must be circumcised/CUT OFF through JESUS’ BAPTISM. Our ‘Old Spirit’ died & our New Spirit born again SINLESS AND RIGHTEOUS to enter into GOD’S PRESENCE as His children. We cross the River Jordan of death by faith and enter into the Promised Land of Rest. All the Promises of God is YES & AMEN! As He is now so are we in this world. Here we rest spiritually and He works through us.
OUR SPIRIT= OUR SPIRIT MAN IS ETERNAL (永 OR ANCIENT The LAMB washes us in the river of water). We must one day return to our Heavenly Home or join Satan to be burnt forever & ever in Hell. Our Old Spirit is born dead to GOD. We must be BORN AGAIN OF WATER (Transferred all our sins & dead spirit to the LAMB OF GOD, entered into JESUS-THE ARK, SINLESS & RIGHTEOUS), & THE SPIRIT ( JOHN 3.5 ) to enter THE KINGDOM OF GOD that is within us. We ENTER THE PROMISED LAND OF REST BY CROSSING THE RIVER JORDAN & to reign with Him. We are HEIR OF THE WORLD & JOINT HEIR WITH CHRIST. We are raised far above Satan & THE 2ND HEAVEN.
Lord Jesus, thank You for loving me, you are the Lamb of God who took away all my sin by your baptism & dying for me on the cross. Your precious blood washes me clean of every sin. You are my Lord, my Savior & my God now & forever. Dear Heavenly Father, I am Your Child & a new creation, made sinless & righteous by Jesus’ Death & Baptism. Thank You for filling my heart with Your love, joy, peace and the gift of the Holy Spirit to live the New life.
