Understanding the Hidden Spiritual Family Structure of God’s Household! Major Concepts Review! Part 5
(Ver 1.3) This is now Part 5 in a series of extremely advanced spiritual Bible studies that reveal God’s wisdom as He uses several divine riddles, puzzles, allegories and symbolisms of enormous complexity to hide some truths in the Bible about the spiritual family of God. Since it has been a long time since I taught in this series, I plan on doing a review lesson of the important concepts given so far while I will also introduce some new perspectives on these topics to help us better understand them. If you think that you know everything that the Bible says because you have read it or even studied it for many years, you have probably fallen into a state of deception that has caused you to over estimate your knowledge of the hidden truth found in the Bible or under estimate God’s ability to hide information. This series of lessons should prove to you how little you actually know of God’s Word if nothing else. I have been studying the Bible for many years and one of the main things that God has revealed to me, is the fact that the more that I know the more I find out that I still need to learn. If you are not there yet, you have a long way to go and many things left to see. Perhaps you did not understand my last comment. I have spoken to many, many highly educated doctors in my life and I noticed one general trait that most all of them possessed. None of them thought they that knew everything. Whenever a doctor who has gone to school for many more years than most other professions, comes across a situation that goes beyond their current expertise, they most of the time pass you off to a specialist who knows more than they do in that area. This is a very humble approach to take for any human. Humans do not generally like to admit that they do not know everything. I wish more Christians would take this attitude. However, I have seen the opposite with many Christians, where those who know the least, think that they know the most and speak out the loudest about things they clearly do not understand. Why are people like that? I believe that it could be a pride issuewhere people lack humility to admit their own weaknesses. I wish I understood how to answer that. I think God looks at people with astonishment also when they think so highly of themselves. I remember when God was speaking to Job and He said to Job “Who is this that darkens counsel with words that have no knowledge (Job 38:2). I think Job forgot who he was speaking to. I also think that God was speaking a clear message to anyone today that thinks too highly of themselves and their opinions and since that was not my titled subject, I’ll move on. Sorry for the initial side trip.
The main goal of the next few lessons in this series will be to reveal the mystery of the hidden spiritual female family members of God’s household. I have already shown you that the male family members are God the Father and God the Son. But God has revealed to us in the Bible that He also has females in His heavenly family and this new information is potentially controversial because it is based upon new revelations that are not widely known nor taught anywhere and therefore they could easily be rejected by readers. People often times reject new things automatically because they cannot find any collaborating evidence other than the Bible for what is being taught. I have had people come to me asking me for my credentials, accreditation or for my mentoring or collaborating teachers that I learned what I was teaching from, but all I have to give them is the Spirit of God and the Words written in the Bible. This is the only evidence that should be necessary, but they are looking for a human expert in the world to confirm the message and this is a very dangerous approach to take when studying the Bible. Satan will send you an expert someday to fulfill your itching ears and you will fall for his deception, if you do not know what the Bible actually says.
However, this is the normal beginning for any new revelation from God; you will always be presented the opportunity to either see it or it will cause you to withdraw from it simply because it does not fit with your current church denomination’s doctrine or what your pastor teaches to you to be the truth. Too many Christians trust the words of man, instead of trusting the Word of God. What you must realize is that this is not something new for today. This was a major challenge that the early church was faced with continually. God brought out new revelation after new revelation and there were no seminaries or Bible experts present to confirm the message spoken by Paul. Paul would come and teach a completely new radical revelation to the church and they would have to first be open to hear the new information and then they were required to go and prove it using only the Old Testament books of the law and the prophets (Acts 17:11). If you think this was easy for them to do, you would be wrong. I’m convinced that Paul had as many problems as I have had and probably many more. If you think this part of the lesson does not apply to you today, you would again be wrong. I state all of this at the beginning as a warning in order to help set the expectation level in your mind for learning something new. God clearly tells us the thing that has been is the thing that shall be again (Ecc 1:9). So I believe that we are in a cycle of that which has happened to the early church is that which is happening again to us before Jesus returns. God clearly prophesies to us about the former and later rains in Joel 2:23 and Zec. 10:1. But, few Christians understand what spiritual rain is. God speaks of natural rain symbolically to help teach us about spiritual things that are poured out and fall from heaven. I take this type of rain to be revelation, knowledge and understanding from the Spirit of God and His word. What else can it be? God is not going to give us any new books to the Bible? So He must be going to tell us about the books that we already have that were written for our benefit and this information will help us to understand them.
In this series of lessons I will be teaching things from the Bible that are radically new and different, but that does not mean they are not what God has said, so open up your spiritual eyes and ears and perceive with your heart the things that God is about to say today. I think I said this before, but I’ll repeat it for emphasis; this is one of the most important revelations of the Word of God that God has given to me up until this point in time. If you study it closely you should begin to understand why I say that. I believe the knowledge found in this series will open up the Bible to you like never before as it has for me. Because of this revelation I am able to teach almost any other subject in the Bible with a greater understanding. It should cause you to understand several new things in the Bible also, like the identities of the women in the book of Revelation. There are two or three women in the book of Revelation that are not named directly nor identified spiritually or scripturally unless you understand who the women are in the family of God. This new knowledge should also help you to know your God like never before to see why He is doing certain things that you never understood before. If you have not read this series from the beginning, I would strongly recommend that you go back and start reading with Part 1. Let’s start by reviewing the family diagram that I gave you in the last lesson and then we will look at the original prophecy of the family found in Micah 7:6.
Mic 7:6 For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house.
Only this diagram will fit to solve the riddle given to us in Micah 7:6, Luke 12:53 and Matthew 10:35 where God tells us about the specific individuals in His spiritual family. You may not understand the diagram yet, but we can only learn new things in progressive steps. Of course we are challenged to find out who or what God is speaking of in Micah 7:6, because God clearly does not reveal it to us directly. This is the nature and just some of the methods that God uses for “Hiding the Truth in Plain Sight”. If you want to learn more about this subject you can go read that series of lessons where I discuss it in more depth. God does not always tell you everything in any one verse and since Micah 7:6 is presented to us in a riddle format it makes it almost impossible for a natural thinking man to figure out what is being revealed. What I have discovered in my Bible studies is that God spreads out information in seemingly random patterns; much like a farmer sowing seeds by hand. You scatter the seeds and you do not know exactly where any one of them will fall. However, God knew exactly where every seed would fall and He has designed the Bible in a fashion that is very intelligent. I have discovered that God will present to us clues in multiple books of the Bible and we are required to find them and to put them together correctly in order to understand the picture. This of course is impossible without God’s help.
God tells us that these are all family members from exactly one house and that they are related to each other using the 6 standard, but uniquely individual family relationship titles given to us in Micah 7:6. You will have to read the clues found in Luke 12:52 to find out how many family members these 6 titles actually represent. We are told by Jesus that there are exactly 5 different family members within God’s spiritual family instead of the 6 that we thought originally. Again, this information just makes the riddle more complex to narrow the scope of possible solutions to help us solve it. Let’s review the list of family titles given to us:
- Father against his son
- Mother against her daughter
- Mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law
There are exactly two males given to us in the list, so we must conclude that the other four female titles represent only 3 women, in order to resolve the clue that said there were only a total of 5 members. Each family member is uniquely identifiable to show us their individual separation while concurrently demonstrating their distinctive common oneness at each specific level of their family relationships. I’m not sure if you understood that last statement or not. Let me try to briefly explain what I meant. First let’s examine their individual titles that separate them; there were three sets of pairs given to us; a father and his son, a mother and her daughter and finally a mother-in-law and her daughter-in-law. Only the women’s titles are potentially overlapping where one woman can possess simultaneous titles. The father can never be his son and vice versa. A mother can never be her daughter and vice versa. Using this same logic we can determine that the mother-in-law can never be her daughter-in-law and vice versa. But, a mother can become a mother-in-law or a daughter could become a daughter-in-law simply by the association of a marriage.
Let me speak to another obvious but often missed part of logical problem solving. If one object is stated to be against or in opposition to another object, they cannot be the same object. Do you understand that statement? For example, God says the son will against the father and therefore we understand the son is not the father. This logic is repeated for each opposing pair. The daughter is against her mother so the daughter is not the mother. The daughter-in-law is against her mother-in-law so the daughter-in-law is not the mother-in-law. This was just basic common sense using logical observation of the stated words given to us by God. Using these types of logic I simply concluded that the daughter and the daughter-in-law were the only two that could be same woman. They are never mentioned to be opposed to each other and since they both contain a form of the “daughter” title they can be more easily associated to be the same woman. You see what I mean? Of course the mother and the mother-in-law both have the same name mother in common and they were both someone’s daughters so many will try to ask can they not be the same woman? That is a good question, why don’t you see if you can draw me a family diagram that has one father and one mother where the mother is both the mother and the mother-in-law and then all of the other titles are also present and the total number of people in the family is five. If you can do that I would love to see it. You see the only diagram that I came up like that was one like I gave you in an earlier lesson that duplicated Adam and Eve’s family with their son Seth and his wife. They would have all of the titles give to us but only be four in one family and the daughter and the daughter-in-law would be in opposition to each other twice in duplication. That just doesn’t make any sense to me.
Solving the riddle diagram was a major part of discovery process from the previous lessons. You see I tried to show you in the last lesson that a “daughter-in-law” title dictates a wedding has occurred. It further stipulates by definition that someone’s son has married the bride and that the bride has now become the son’s parents’ new daughter-in-law. In this spiritual family of God, who is the Son of God? We of course know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and therefore He is the only one qualified to marry the woman called the new daughter-in-law. If this is true, which it must logically be, only the daughter is qualified to become the daughter-in-law also called the son’s wife from the family of 5 titles that were given to us. You see you never as a son would marry your mother or your mother-in-law so I ruled those two women out immediately. This forces us to conclude that the unmarried daughter is also the daughter-in-law and this knowledge resolves the difference between the six titles and only 5 family members that the riddle presented to us. Wow, I hope and pray that you understood all of my logical reasoning in solving this riddle up until this point, because it only gets more complicated from here forward.
Before I get to the new subject of commonalities, let’s get into a new perspective found within a family called structure. Let’s stop and get some definitions for the word “structure”:
- mode of building, construction, or organization; arrangement of parts, elements, or constituents: a pyramidal structure.
- something built or constructed, as a building, bridge, or dam.
- complex system considered from the point of view of the whole rather than of any single part: the structure of modern science
All of these definitions are applicable to the family of God. God’s family is a designed construction effort. God’s family has organization and different parts that are specifically arranged to benefit the whole. God’s family as we have seen is a very complex system and God presents it in a riddle that no man was able to figure out until now. Within every normal and healthy family on the earth there is an organized structure of responsibility and authority. A father is called the head of the house and he holds ultimate responsibility for the entire family. The mother of the family comes next in authority and she helps raise the children with her husband. The children in the family are always the lowest on the authority food chain, yet they are very important because of the love that their parents have for them. From the Bible we also understand that children have ranking authority and responsibility. The first born child is always the oldest and will ultimately take the lead within the family after the father is gone. The next born is then the next in line if something should happen to the older sibling and etc. down the line of children to the youngest. Since I am teaching about the structure of God’s spiritual family, keep this authority structure information in mind as we continue. Practically everything that you read in the Bible about families will apply to God and His family in some way.
Within the family structure of the 5 individuals in the one family, we will discover the presence of several hierarchical sub-divisions that are present to establish order and organized structure. If you know anything about an orchestra, you have a conductor who is the head or the leader of everyone. You can also have different sections like a percussion section which contains a multiple tiered responsibility organization within itself. You can have a brass section also with another multi-tiered responsibility sub-division. There are other sub-divisions like wood-winds and strings. Every sub-group is an organized hierarchically structured group designed to give order for the good of the whole. All of these sub-groups are designed to work together for the good or the purpose of the whole with the conductor having ultimate responsibility to lead the way for the others. In a perfect spiritual world this would be how God’s family would have operated also. However, that is where God’s problem and solution begins to unfold and take place. Since God’s enemies are an integrated part of his organized orchestra, God has a major problem with some instruments being out of step with the ultimate plan of God who is the supreme conductor. If God’s organization was an orchestra, He could have fired Satan and his angels and replaced them with newly created ones and this would have been an acceptable solution. However, since we are speaking of a spiritual family structure we must realize that this complicates things very significantly.
Everything that I have said so far is a general review with some new enhanced details being presented to you to help you understand the concepts found within a family structure. These concepts here that I have given to you are actually very important to know. God is a highly structured and organized spiritual being. God does not create chaos. Everything that God has created had a designed purpose until individuals like Satan decided to create a new separate orchestra from God’s. Hopefully you understand the concept of design and purpose. For example, when you examine the human DNA, you cannot conclude this was accidental or came into being by chance. I learned as a computer programmer that every complex system that exists in the world dictates a designer who created it. The human DNA is so complex that it forces us to believe in a creator. Yet men still ignore it and think wrong. You see God has given us many clues within the things that He has created and His written word and we must learn from each.
So I have briefly covered family structure, organization, responsibility and individuality, but now I want to shift your focus to concentrate more on their commonalities. So let’s examine the subject of commonalities within the family members given. Since the daughter and the daughter-in-law are both the same woman we have one individual being called by two distinct titles or names. Every daughter is not a daughter-in-law, but every daughter-in-law is a daughter. These are interesting concepts that we will see in other parts of the Bible and this lesson. If you have ever studied the Bible you can easily understand that Satan is called by many different names, titles, descriptions and symbols. This is the concept of one individual being called by many identifiers and now I want to reverse that concept and teach you about one named individual consisting of many separately named personalities, entities or beings. It is a very similar concept of that given to us by the reality of the Trinity of God. There is one God who is referred or identified by 3 personalities, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Still one God, but viewed by a multi-tiered methodology. This concept is very prevalent in the world and in the Bible. Let’s examine the definition of “commonality”. According to the internet this word means “A shared feature or attribute between two or more individuals”. This is an interesting concept but it also goes beyond that definition. For example, a commonality can also be binding or non-binding. In other words a friendship between two people is a non-binding relationship, but a marriage between a husband and a wife is a type of binding relationship. Surely you understand what I am attempting to describe to you. It goes again to the old saying that you can choose your friends but you cannot choose your relatives. All of your relatives share a binding commonality that none of them can get out of. As long as you and your siblings are alive you will have that brother or sister in your family. Just because you move to another family or marry a husband or a wife to start a new family, you will still possess the designated titles of brothers and sisters with your old family members. This is a simple truth, but one that you need to apply to what is being described to you today about the spiritual family of God. Are you getting it?
Therefore, being in the family of God is the first unique qualifier of unified binding commonality. Every family member has the one family of God in common with the one spiritual head of the house, God the Father. Therefore, no family members came into the family from another family by marriage or from an external source of existence for instance. This is actually an important revelation to consider. When you think about God’s creation and the created spiritual beings like angels and humans, God is saying they were all an internal part of His personal family. They did not self-originate nor did they come into existence without the Father’s direct contribution to procreate. When God tells us in Micah 7:6 that a man’s enemies are those of His own house, He is revealing to us why He is doing what He is doing with having a son named Jesus. It also explains why it is so complicated for us to understand. If Satan was not in the family of God, God could have cast him into hell the moment any sin was found in Him. But, since Satan is a foundational and integral part of the organized family structure of God’s internal spiritual household, God cannot throw Satan into hell without moving Himself there at the same time. You will better understand that statement as I continue to describe to you who the women are in the family of God, so hang in there and let’s continue on.
The concept of multiple individuals being one is a foundational Bible truth scattered throughout the Bible and the world in various examples. Since God is describing 5 members in one family this is my next point to show you the patterned effect of this reality in our world. The United States is described to be One Nation under God and this reality involves millions of individual people who were either born there, moved there or lives there. Within the nation of the United States there exists a tiered structure of authority. We have a complex organized federal government followed by a system of State governments and finally the lower level county or city government structures. A baseball or a soccer team is one group that is comprised of several layers of individual players and coaches but they are often referred to in the term of being a single named entity, like the Chicago Cubs or the Portland Timbers. Each baseball team is organized with a head coach or team manager and then sub-divided levels of coaching responsibilities, like batting, fielding and pitching. Even the players can be organized into different leadership responsibilities like being given a team captain’s level of authority. The United States and a sports team are both representative entities of a highly organized group with structured levels of authority and responsibility. Does this occur in the Bible?
Think with me about the nation of Israel. They were described in the Bible to be one nation of people in covenant with God, but they were also sub-divided into 12 different tribes that came from the 12 sons of Jacob and this resulted in many, many individual people that were again one organized highly structured nation. This nation had a king who ruled like David. This nation had priests that ministered to God within the temple and these priests all came from the sons of Aaron which are a further sub-division within the structured nation. There was a chief priest and even a second priest mentioned in the Bible. So within the sub-division of priests there were was a ranking hierarchy. What I am attempting to do is to show you organized patterns that resemble God’s family structure. We can clearly see concepts where we must conclude that many individuals can be viewed as one named organized entity and that these people can be further divided or sub-divided and organized into many tiered levels of responsibility and authority. Being born in the nation of Israel was a binding commonality that you could not get out of. Once you were born a Jew you were always a Jew. This was either a good or a bad thing depending upon your point of view and your knowledge of the Bible, but I cannot go there today. Let’s review some other family commonalities that exist within the family of 5.
I guess I have taught this next concept in other Bible lessons, but for the sake of new readers I will repeat it for a clearer understanding of the subject of binding commonality. When God created the first man, in Genesis 1, He said that He made them male and female and that He called their name “Adam”. You can read that in the original Hebrew if you study it closely or you can also go and read it in Genesis 5:2. So God is basically revealing that two can be named as one. Then God shows us a more detailed creation account of the man and woman in Genesis 2. In this chapter the woman is taken from the side of the man and God presents the woman to the man where God continues to reveal the law of marriage to us in Genesis 2:24:
Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
This verse represents God’s established law of marriage. This was not a new concept for God as we will soon learn, but this concept of marriage existed a long time before God created Adam. Within the text God says the two individuals are separate while simultaneously being joined to become one. Therefore we have the concurrent occurrence of unique separation while being joined and named as one united entity. This is exactly the concept that I have been attempting to teach you today about a binding commonality. However, this law introduces to us a completely new aspect to consider. According to God’s law, the man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his new wife and the two of them will become one new family. This is a new concept that has never happened before! Uh oh? This is also a major religious problem for how many people in the church think today. God gives us this law for the first time in reference to the creation of man and his wife. But, God never says that all of this is a new principle. We can understand that Adam is forced to separate from his mother and father and is required by law to be joined to his wife to create a new separate family. But, who were Adam’s mother and father? You see this is another one of those hidden riddle types of mysteries found in the Bible where God tells you something without telling you everything. What we see is the establishment of a new earthly family structure being organized apart from the existing family of God in heaven. God as the creator has to be the Father of Adam by definition (Heb 12:9). We can also understand this fact by the way that God breathed into the created man Adam, His own Spirit (Gen 2:7) after God had formed his body from the dust of the ground. The body of Adam had no life until God had breathed into him. We can also understand from this reality that this is a natural patterned foreshadowing of that which will reoccur in the spiritual realm when Jesus Christ came to the earth as the Son of God and the Last Adam (1 Cor 15:45). I’m sorry this is so complicated, but I did not write it. This is the Wisdom of the Most High God and it is so advanced while being concurrently simple that it makes me stand in amazement at the awesome plan of God.
From this information, we know that a husband and his wife are always two individuals that God says have been joined to become one. Therefore, we know from the given titles found in Micah 7:6 that a “daughter-in-law” title informs us of the existence of a marriage as well as a unified husband and wife relationship with binding commonality. I showed you in a previous lesson that the unmarried daughter must logically marry the unmarried son and they therefore are the only two that can legitimately become a new one by marriage. But, we also understand that the Father, the mother as well as the mother-in-law in this diagram are already all married and they are also “one” with each other. The titles, father, mother and mother-in-law all imply that they have been married. So that is 3 different layers of binding commonality that I just mentioned. First, the parents and the children are all one family. The first level of binding commonality is the Father’s family unit. The parents (father, mother and mother-in-law) are another unit of binding commonality by the law of marriage and finally the unmarried children become a new husband and wife unified family unit when they get married. We can see that there is one Father with two wives. We can know from the concepts given to us by the law of marriage that these three are one unit bound by the law. We can further know that the son and the daughter when they get married, they will become a new one family by the same law of marriage where God informs us that they must leave their current family in order to create this new family. This helps us to understand why Jesus revealed in Luke 12:52 that the 5 in one house will be divided 3 against 2 and 2 against 3. All of this helps us to understand the explanation to the riddle being presented. God is stating in a coded message that He has implemented a complex plan to cause a legal separation to occur while simultaneously a new union of binding everlasting commonality. I call this dividing and uniting at the same time. This is how God eliminates himself and us from evil while eternally joining Himself to those who are good. I know this is strange and I know this is not normal, but it is in the Bible, so God has a purpose in doing it this way and it is certainly possible even in the natural realm so you cannot disqualify it because it is different. While it is highly unique you must at least admit it is not inconceivable. Hopefully as we continue through the lesson series you will better understand why this is happening. I think I have gone way too long for this lesson. I have been reviewing some previous information today while teaching you some new very important information and we will use all of this knowledge to understand the identities of the women in the Family of God. I will hopefully get to this subject in the next lesson, God willing. Until next time God bless you!
If you would like to continue learning in this series you may go to “Part 6” now!
