They Got God at a Fire Sale Price (and a Whole Lot More Than They Bargained For)—Part II

The Voice of Elijah® Newsletter, July 1999

Excerpt From Newsletter

The most amazing thing about the parabolic imagery of The Teaching of Moses and The Teaching of the Prophets is this: It is extremely easy for the True Believer to understand and believe. The next most amazing thing about the parabolic imagery of The Teaching of Moses and The Teaching of the Prophets is this: It is just as easy for skeptics and scoffers to understand isolated details, but they find it impossible to believe. Consequently, they cannot “see” the big picture. Fools that they are, they will discount what they cannot understand while vehemently denying that they are blind. The most ignorant will reject the Truth of The Teaching outright.

To this point, I have been intentionally flying under the radar of the blind. That is, I have tried to make it more difficult for them to understand The Teaching by explaining it in bits and pieces—a little bit here, a little bit there. I have often not emphasized what is important to remember because I know that the True Believer sees the Truth of The Teaching with the “eyes of the heart.” That is, those who believe “see” a mental image, a parabolic image, to which they add pertinent details as they hear them explained. Those who know what I am talking about already understand: The parabolic imagery of The Teaching speaks far more eloquently than any of its individual elements viewed separately. So for the benefit—or detriment—of those dullards who are reading along in stubborn unbelief, let me stoke the fire of God’s wrath on their behalf by explaining a few more details openly. The sons of Israel, because they lived alongside the Canaanites, used the same linguistic conventions and obscure idiomatic expressions that the Canaanites used. And their view of Heaven and Earth was no different than that of the Canaanites because, more often than not, they worshiped the very same gods the Canaanites worshiped.
