    Love it! As long as the Spirit is seen as something separate/outside of 'self', there is not 'one'...that God's dwelling place is within us, the temple not made with human hands. While duality remains within, there are idols (image created in the mind) that are worshipped as truth (which is really a lie). The carnal mind divides everything, while God's kingdom has always been one since before the foundation of the world was laid.

    What happened with Israel in scripture is the narrative of our soul's journey (process taking place within)...our soul likened to the land and the promise of entering in...internal/inner truth. The joining of the two sticks...man sees two kingdoms which relates to perceiving...that heaven is a far off place and coming in the sky event (separate from his being/inner man). We are the temple/dwelling place/city/promised land of God...to perceive/see that in spirit and in truth is mind-blowing (pun intended)...

    Though many say with their mouth that HE dwells in them, they still look to the sky (five senses perceiving, not spirit) for His arrival with His Kingdom. Jesus prayed in John 17 for that becoming one... That truth is what is being revealed/restored/reconciled inside (heart/mind/soul)...that being brought to remembrance is all that Adam lost sight of (spiritual separation from God...became afraid when he heard God's voice outside of himself for the first time after the fall)...God's glory.



    To 'see' as Isaiah 6 is profound...

    I remember being at a Bible study on Ezekiel 37 taught by a former pastor who was a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary.

    He taught that the "dry bones" were about the modern State of Israel.

    After reading the text myself, it was clearly a reference to a bodily resurrection.

    Then after I came to understand the Bible from a New Covenant perspective it became clear that the "covenant of peace" in the passage is the "everlasting covenant" from Hebrews 13:20.

    I have been on the road to Emmaus for several years now.
    Thank God that I have come to understand the truth of what Christ said in Luke 24:25-27.
    The whole Old Testament is a book about Him.


    Joh 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.


    Thank you for your kind response.

    Amazing what the Spirit reveals...as promised...beyond what we (man) could ever imagine in mind...He changes our perspective/perception from looking to the sky/physical to within..."Christ IN YOU, the hope of glory"...what beauty to behold what only HE can reveal...

    And, as we continue on in that chapter, we can see a picture of the process taking place within... "They constrained Him"...(some translations use "begged"; "urged strongly"; or "pleaded") as He seemed like He was going to leave them and continue further...it was night and the day far spent (Romans 13:12)....He sat to eat with them and their eyes were opened (Adam's were closed in the garden!)
    John 9:39-41 1 Corinthians 13:12...then, to wait in the city...Acts 1:4

    Luke 24:29 But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.

    30 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.

    31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

    32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

    33 And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,

    Luke 24:31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

    ...Jesus was physically (flesh, blood and bone) resurrected and not yet gone to the father, not yet glorified...He had 40 days of (physically) wandering the earth after resurrection...this being a picture of when our perception/perceiving changes from physical/literal to spiritual ...His kingdom is not of this world...not of the dust realm (five senses seeing....)
