“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'” (Jn 7:38)
Can rivers flow without a channel or conduit?
“The Conduit” provides “living water” that must flow within a belief system that is based on The Construct (the ideas and concepts) that The Messiah taught, as provided and created by The Father.
The Conduit that The Father created is in the form of a Mental Decagon – a ten-sided conduit. These “sides” (ideas, concepts, principles) are the Ten Commandments.
If any one of these ideas or principles “collapses”, The Conduit would fill with “dirt” and would eventually stop the flow of the “living water”.
Also notice in the image for this topic that this particular “conduit” is made up of individual bricks (stones). So, likewise, if any one of these stones fails, the leak would eventually lead to the conduit filling with “dirt” as other nearby stones would also fail due to the associated erosion caused by “outside” forces. So each stone must remain “intact” to protect and maintain the flow of Life through The Conduit. Each stone must support (agree with, believe in) the Ten Commandments – The Construct – in order to be part of The Conduit which provides and sustains Eternal Life with Living Water (Holy Spirit).
The Apostle Peter referred to the saints, the true believers, as “living stones“.
1 Pet 2:5
5 you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Peter also referred to these saints as the “Chosen Generation”, a “Holy Nation”.
1 Pet 2:9
9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
From the timeline and events revealed by the Seven Annual Holydays (The Plan), we should be able to discern that we, today, are that “chosen generation”, and that we are being called from every nation on earth to become part of “The Conduit” that will bring Life and Peace to this earth now, and for all Eternity, as the Bride and Wife of The Messiah. We are “The Firstfuits” who will comprise the “Holy Nation” that fulfills Holyday 3 – Pentecost.
“The Conduit” analogy/metaphor is being related here in order to provide an important mental framework and perspective that will enable us to counteract and keep out of our minds the “forces” (ideas, principles) that lead to Death.
There are many ideas being aggressively promoted today that lead to Death (Eternal Death). One idea in particular that destroys Life and Peace is that “Intolerance” is bad, restrictive, oppressive, disruptive and evil. Anyone who takes a stand for principles that promote Life and Peace is now being called “intolerant”, racist, bigoted, narrow-minded, and hateful.
We must not make the mistake of viewing the Ten Commandments “Conduit” as such.
While it it is definitely “intolerant” of the “outside” getting “inside” it, it is infinitely and eternally tolerant of all things “inside” it. There is no limit or restriction on either the diameter or the length of “The Conduit”! In fact, The Conduit is prophesied to grow in size forever without end.
7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
The walls and sides of a tunnel/conduit are NOT EVIL. They ARE NECESSARY in order for water to flow.
Likewise, TEN COMMANDMENTS are NOT EVIL. Without their restrictive (“intolerant”) attribute, life and peace cannot be sustained by the flow of the “Holy Spirit” of Love.
The walls of “The Conduit” – the TEN COMMANDMENTS – must be protected at all costs.
We must keep out all opposing ideas and concepts.
The focus and strategy should be on IDEAS and CONCEPTS – not on people, races or nations.
“The Conduit” must only contain and provide a flow of IDEAS and CONCEPTS that will lead to a sustainable way of life for an eternity of peace and prosperity for ALL.
The same applies to us, as “living stones” thereof.
