From the previous step we know that Jesus was RAISED AGAIN. But does this only apply to Him? No! Being raised again is not limited to just Jesus. Read what He told Martha in John 11:23, “thy brother shall raise again.” Yes, Lazarus was resurrected, and this also happened to others. “And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after His (Jesus’) resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.” (Matthew 27:52-53) The knowledge of previous resurrections was so prevalent that some were even “saying that the resurrection is past already.” (2 Timothy 2:18).

According to the scriptures resurrection is NOT a future onetime event, nor is it an event which “is past already”, but it is a continuous ongoing event of past, present and future. If you believe that there is only ONE death and resurrection then read Revelation 20:6. “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power.” This verse is only mentioned because it uses the words “first” and “second” indicating more than ONE death and resurrection. This knowledge is vital to understanding God’s hidden mysteries of DEATHS and RESURRECTIONS. Without death there would be no need for resurrection, and thus is established the Divine Order of CYCLES, death first and then resurrection.

It is through these cycles that the process of perfection is performed, and that which is “sown a natural body” is “raised a spiritual body”, that which is “sown in weakness” is “raised in power”, and that which is “corruptible” has become “incorruptible”. Through these cycles the ELOHEEM, children of YAHWAH, enter earth, live in flesh and blood bodies, die, return back home to the FATHER, enter earth again in flesh and blood bodies, die, return back home to the FATHER, and so on until they grow up, reach perfected adulthood, and are the full grown mature adult SONS of YAHWAH God. This perfection process takes more than one brief visit to earth in a flesh body. It matters not that one cycle might be 1 minute or 969 years, but they continue until perfection has been performed.

All this is analogous to a child’s education. They leave home and go to school. The school day may be only 1 hour or 8 hours, but at the end of the day they return back home. This cycle of going to school and returning home is repeated until all tests are passed, all grade levels are completed, the education finished, and the graduation degree obtained. The lesson plan that YAHWAH has for His children ELOHEEM is an individual one designed to bring each person into the FULNESS of perfection. Our destiny is the same, but the road trip to that destination is a custom made journey so that everything will be seen and experienced that is necessary for the total education. We are not going to miss it, but will cycle until we get it. Our Father patiently leads us along the way “into all knowledge”, “and upbraideth not”. During these resurrections, cycles, just like the child going to school, knowledge is built upon knowledge. What was learned becomes the building blocks of today, and is the rising structure upon which tomorrow stands.

Further insight into the cycles is found in the link between Elijah and John the Baptist. In case you did not know that John the Baptist was Elijah then read Matthew 17:11-13. “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elijah truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, that Elijah is come already. Then the disciples understood that He spake unto them of John the Baptist.” “And if you will receive it, this (John the Baptist) is Elijah which was for to come.” (Matthew 11:14)

(continued - The Thirteenth Step)

With this understanding go to 1 Kings 18 which records how Elijah challenged the 450 prophets of Baal to a showdown on Mount Carmel in order to prove who is the true God, YAHWAH or Baal. These prophets were unsuccessful in calling fire down from Heaven, but Elijah did, and he ordered the people to take these prophets of Baal to the brook Kishon, and cut off their heads. In 1 Kings 19 Queen Jezebel swore she would do to Elijah what he had done to her prophets. Verse 3 says, “He arose and went for his life.” John the Baptist had to face the very death, BEHEADING, from which Elijah fearfully ran. As recorded in Mark 6:17-29, John was beheaded at the request of the QUEEN, and she was given his head in a charger.

The death Elijah fled was the same death he had to face as John the Baptist. Learn what is shown in this example for you too will ultimately have to face your fears as God said in Isaiah 66:4, I will bring their fears upon them.” Rolling on the floor kicking and screaming will not change the destination for YAHWAH’S ELOHEEM, but is just an adolescent reaction to the things on the trip which are necessary to get them to their Divine Destiny. YAHWAH is not building a family of adolescent escape artists, but mature adults that are capable of reigning and ruling with their older brother.

There is one more piece to add in completing this puzzle, and it is that we are our own ancestors as is shown in Hebrews 11:40 where it says, “that they without us should not be made perfect.” The “they” in this verse are those that lived in the past, and the “us” are those that are living in the present. How are those in the past perfected? In US because they are us and we are them. If this is not true, then explain how they cannot be made perfect WITHOUT us. You can’t just as the Pharisees could not explain how the Christ was the ancestor and descendant of David.

The people in Jesus’ day believed that those who had lived before did come back and would live again in typical flesh and blood bodies with a different identity. Did they not ask John the Baptist “Art thou Elias (Elijah)? … Art thou that prophet?” (John 1:21) There was such widespread speculation about which dead person Jesus might be that He “asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist (who was dead): some, Elias(Elijah who was dead); and others, Jeremias (Jeremiah who was dead), or one of the prophets (all were dead).” (Matthew 16”13-14) It was common knowledge that men lived, died, and came back to live again on earth and yet, the Pharisees taught the very opposite with their completely corrupted concept that resurrection was a onetime far off distant future event which is the same demonic delusional doctrine taught by Christianity today. Biblical resurrection of leaving and returning is simply the ascending and descending, the comings and goings of ELOHEEM back and forth to the schoolhouse of earth and to their heavenly home again and again. Is this not Jacob’s dream vision in Genesis 28:12 as well as what Jesus told Nathanael in John 1:51? YES!

The whole purpose of these cycles of death and resurrection is to bring YAHWAH’S ELOHEEM children to perfection, and this takes more than one short trip to the schoolhouse of earth. You may ask, “Why don’t I remember these cycles?” Do you remember being inside your mother’s womb in this present one? Conscious memory is a poor thing at best, but locked away in the subconscious, in the spirit, in the very Divine DNA itself, is the entire knowledge of the ages. Knowing that Biblical resurrection is a continuous cycling process leading to perfection is THE THIRTEENTH STEP.
