Since I get such a kick, still, out of blathering on about this stuff, I'm continuing on with the discussion of HESUS JOY CHRIST / Matthew's Foretold !!

 Verse 17    

17From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.”

from the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter Four, New International Version

 Verse 17     

17From that time on One got preachy: “Rebirth, or the kingdom of heaven is ne'er.”

from the text of the animation HESUS JOY CHRIST / Matthew's Foretold
written by R David Foster

 Verse 17 Discussion       

           So begins the preaching.  On the one hand, Jesus preaches “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” and the sacred One relationship, balancing whole and part as Jesus himself embodied a balance of whole and part, preaches to all who encounter it - “Rebirth, or the kingdom of heaven is ne'er.”

" Rebirth ! "

            On the one hand, the kingdom of heaven is near, and can be attained by repenting, which is to stop, correct oneself, and continue on within the law. This is successful if one is close to the kingdom of heaven already.  On the other hand, the kingdom of heaven is never, contracted to the form of “ne'er”, unless there is rebirth.  Both repentance and rebirth are common in christian culture, but they are not the same thing.

            Webster's New World Dictionary defines “Repent” to mean both to feel sorry for a sin, and to feel such regret that one changes one's mind.  “Rebirth”, on the other hand, is defined as a new or second birth; a reawakening or revival. The essential difference is that repentance deals with a part of one's life and rebirth encompasses the whole of one's life.

            If one exists in a closed system, than nothing new can enter that system. The only glimpse of a larger more thorough system that one can encounter is in the mistakes or errors made in that existing closed system.  If the existing closed system were complete and accurate, then mistakes or errors would not occur.  Repenting maintains the existing closed system, and attempts to correct errors or mistakes, regardless of why or how they occur.  Rebirth is the self destruction of a closed system due to its own failure to account for mistakes and errors, revealing a more complete and accurate system, whether closed or not.

           A very good example of rebirth is the two views of the solar system.  When knowledge of the planets began, they were observed to be in motion with respect to the earth.  But as the knowledge of the planets increased, it became obvious that it was easier to understand the motion of the planets if the sun was considered the centre, rather than the earth.  This allowed the motion of the planets to be understood as orbiting the sun, rather than far more complex motion with respect to the earth.  The totality, or whole, of the motion of the planets changed, from being understood with respect to the earth, to being understood with respect to the sun.  The facts remained the same, but the understanding changed entirely.

            If one's system is working well, then correct the errors and maintain the system.  But if one's understanding is failing in an onslaught of errors, than scrap it and look toward a better system that more accurately accounts for existence.  For some, the kingdom of heaven can be achieved by repenting, but for others, and societies, there are times when rebirth is the overwhelmingly essential solution.  We are in such a time.

            All the ordinances can be understood by a balance of whole and part, and gender can be understood as well.  Marriage is the solution, but to see this solution, one, and society, must experience a reawakening and reorient themselves around marriage, and the overwhelming Joy of such a rebirth, rather than around law, ordinances, values, comfort, condemnation, dismissal and apathy.

           Jesus did call for repentance as John the Baptist did, but Jesus also called for rebirth.  I cannot find the exact quote, but I believe it goes something like this.  If a seed remains, it is just a seed, but if it is sown, it dies and becomes a large plant, bearing fruit.  The plant is more magnificent than the seed.  The purpose of the seed is the plant, and the purpose of the plant is the seed.  Rebirth is the death of the seed and the creation of the plant bearing fruit.
" Or the kingdom of heaven is ne'er ! "

           Rebirth is necessary for the comprehension of the sacred role of marriage. One must die to other authorities, relinquishing their demands, to become obedient to God and their spouse, rather than law, parents, career, or other earthly demands.  Christ is the way, the truth and the life, and is there to be found in, around, and pointing to marriage, the sacred balance of whole and part.

           If repentance has led us this far, and death and rebirth are necessary to move forward, than rebirth is necessary to move forward.  Jesus has come and now is the time to move on, in the path of Jesus, to the new world that we have encountered.  This world is navigated by balancing whole and part, and is more vast than anything yet imagined.

           This new world is like electromagnetics.  It is within our existing understanding, but draws our understanding beyond the obvious, to a new understanding that can account for more than the old understanding could, as well as account for everything the old understanding offered.

           This new world is not like Mars. It is not beyond our physical experience, out there somewhere.  This new world is within us, around us, among us, and at hand.
