(Please follow this link to see the definition of >> “Emblem” (or “Emblematic”) << as used by the Zenith Guide’s Christology Series.
The Series, The Emblem of Two Kingdoms, in this Blog (C 13) will depict specific elements of the >> Divine Plan of GOD << and the >> Grand Design of GOD << concerning Mankind and the struggle between the Holy and the Evil. the Sacred & the Profane, and the Good & the Bad. The time span begins at >> Creation <<; continues through the Dispensations of Prophecy & Fulfillment; and culminates with >> THE COMPENDIUM OF THE ETERNAL WORKS OF JESUS CHRIST << which includes the following Timeline of Events concerning Jesus Christ:
– HIS Pre-Existence;
– the Incarnation;
– the Birth;
– the Ascension to Heaven & Throne. The Compendium is an Extensive segment and merited its own Blog. See the link above.
The above are the Eternal Works which include Eternity Past, Eternity Present, & Eternity Future time stream of the Works of CHRIST. See the following link for the abbreviated list of >> ORDAINED EARTHLY WORKS OF CHRIST Series – << a shorter listing regarding the Redemptive Work of CHRIST on Earth.
This series will depict the two Divisions of Mankind on Earth as divided by the Seed of the Woman and the Seed of the serpent with ageless Animosity between them as Ordained by GOD in the Garden of Eden. They will be Represented by the Emblems of Divisions, Kingdoms, Domains and Dimensions and their shared Enmity. We will also discuss the Elements of Darkness & Light, Sorrow & Joy and Death & Life as they apply to the Spiritual Realm.
Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
The Biblical definition of Enmity is a deep rooted hatred. This type of hatred, when engendered by >> Carnality << through Evil Spiritual influences, Evil governing Principles and Carnal appetites which creates a natural animosity against GOD, HIS people and all that is Holy.
Rom 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
In the Beginning of the Earth Sphere (all of Creation as we Know it) GOD began with the Separation of the Positive and Negative Elements of Darkness and Light.
The 1st Division – Light From Darkness
Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
In the beginning of Creation in the Earthly Sphere only chaos existed until the Word … and chaos fled away.
THE LORD began to place Order in the Cosmos beginning with the Light. HE created Light, saw that the Light was good, and “divided” the Light from the Darkness.
Gen 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
THE LORD created the sun to rule by day and for the night HE created the lesser Lights – the moon and the stars.
The 2nd Division – Separation of Life & Death
Mankind was created in the image of GOD. He was a human being with a Spiritual nature unlike the other creatures of Creation. GOD gave Mankind many Blessings including Dominion of the Planet Earth and the Gift of Eternal Life and Immortality. GOD warned Adam that Disobedience (Sin) would forfeit the Gift of Life resulting in Mortality and Death. When Mankind sinned (>> Ubelief << and Disobedience) he suffered Separation from GOD; the Death of his Spiritual connection to the Source of Life; the loss of Spiritual Fellowship with GOD; the loss of his Dominion over this World/Earth, and loss of his glorious habitat in the Garden of Eden.
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The 3rd Division – From Spiritual to Carnal
GOD Created Man with Free Will. It was Mankind’s choice whether to Obey GOD or to follow his Carnal Nature and Self/Will. He decided to Believe the Lies of Satan/the devil who had deceived him. Man was blinded and fell under the Power of Darkness into the Void instead of remaining Faithful to the one true GOD in the Kingdom of Light. Man entered into Sin, Death and Darkness with the devil who is the god of this World and the >> Ruler of the Kingdom of Darkness. <<
2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
2Co 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.
Once Satan had accomplished the rift between GOD and Mankind, he blinded the minds of unbelieving Mankind while continuing his efforts to draw Mankind further and further away from GOD and deeper into his Kingdom of ignorance and Darkness. After Adam’s Sin of Unbelief and Disobedience, Mankind was no longer a Spiritual Being made in the image of GOD, Living and acting under the Will of GOD, but a Carnal, Natural Man of Flesh and Blood without Faith, without Belief in GOD, without the Spirit of GOD and Lost.
But GOD had made a Provision for Mankind, which was the Seed of the Woman – CHRIST.
Mat 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
Luk 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
