Part 22

God tells Abram that he will have an heir and inherit all the lands around him. But here is Abram having doubts.

Chapter 15:

Verse 8. “And he said, Lord God, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it.

Verse 9. “And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.

Verse 10. “And her took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another; but the birds divided he not” (tame animals mean fear)

This is your resistance, or fears, you have become accustomed to. He divided or shed them except the birds, which are intuition.

Verse 11. “And when the fowl’s came down upon the carcasses, Abram drove them away.”

Don’t let the intuition get tangled up with the fears, the “ifs” and “buts”.  Let the intuition go right through to the thinking.

Verse 12. “And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and lo a horror of great darkness fell upon him.”

This also happens to us. We think things are so black that we will never get out of where we are, especially when we are faced with a challenge.

Verse 13. “And he said unto Abram, ‘Know of a surety that they seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them, and shall afflict them four hundred years.’”

Verse 14. “And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.”

Verse 15. “And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age.”

Verse 16. “But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites (a race, inheritance, dwellers of the summits, mountaineers, highlanders, overcoming only by purification of the consciousness within and without) is not yet full.”

Verse 17. “And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.”

Verse 18. “In that same day the Lord made a covenant (agreement) with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt (psychic) unto the great river, the river Euphrates (to make fruitful, fructifying, blood stream)”

Verse 19. “The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,

Verse 20. “And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,

Verse 21. “And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.

Abram is going through what we call today the dark night of the soul. Just take a look at the meanings of the different peoples.
These are the conscious thoughts that were to be dealt with.

Kenites obsession, acquisitions, Thoughts of strife or contention.
Kenizzites Strength centered in the physical.
Kadmonites Elemental life force – primeval.
Hittites Sundered, Thoughts of opposition and resistance.
Perizzites Dweller in the country – elemental life force.
Rephaims Gloom, terrors, giants, strong ones. Fear-producing thoughts in consciousness.
Amorites dwellers of the summits – generative function.
Caanites Traffickers in materiality – elemental life forces in the subconscious.
Gigashites Belonging to that which is dense – very material state of thought.
Jebusites Trodden down – spiritual under subjection to sense or carnal thought.

I have quoted all the meanings from the Unity Metaphysical Dictionary to show that what seems just a list of lands of peoples have a much deeper meaning and needs to be checked. Nothing was put in any of the books of the bible unless it had several meanings at different levels.

 To repeat for those who may not have previous editions of "Pulse". There are four levels of meaning verified by a Talmud scholar; Simple, Hint, Interpretation, and Secret. These stem from the little word "Tho" left out of translations of the Bibles but indicates that everything following this word in the second chapter, verse 4, of Genesis is symbolic.

This is what has provoked the classes and seminars of the Hidden Bible Secrets, and this series.

As you can see we are now up to Part 22, some four previous Parts can be found on the website given on the inside cover. I would be happy to send copies of previous Parts if requested.

To return to Abram - in verse 18 it talks about the river of Egypt, but not naming it the Nile. Instead the great river is actually called the Euphrates. Why? Because Egypt means the psychic and in the story that follows Abram is very much involved with the psychic and has to finally go beyond this area in his life, as do we all.

For we now go to Sarai as an expression of Abrams consciousness; for the wife, when named, is just that. Sarai, meaning contentious, shows Abram as still questioning God's word. She is still barren, even though God has told Abram that he will begat an heir. This indicates that he has reached a barren space in this life; barren of the spiritual life.

Chapter 16

Verse 1. "Now Sarai, Abram's wife, bare him no children: and she had a handmaid, an Egyptian , whose name was Hagar."

Verse 2. "And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the Lord hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai."

Verse 3. "And Sarai, Abram;s wife, took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaaan (material existence, lowland), and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife."

Egyptian – the psychic, and Hagar – stranger to the spiritual life.

So if Abram goes along he is deeper into the psychic and what will he produce as a son. A son, when named, is the resulting level of consciousness that the main character is manifesting.

Verse 4. "And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived; and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes."

Verse 5."And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I have given my maid into they bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the Lord judge between me and thee."

Verse 6. "But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold thy maid is in thine hand; do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt harshly with her, she fled from her face."

You cannot abrogate the responsibility for YOUR consciousness.

Verse 7. "And the angel of the Lord found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way of Shur."

Now running water is the spiritual, but still water is the psychic. Shur means going round about. So Abram is still going around in circles, not knowing which way is which. We will find out how he really gets out of this next time.
