    Re: What is the Nature {& Gender} of "GOD" ?

    Thank you for the gratitude.
    I don't look outside of myself for a savior.
    We all have our guardian angels within us
    Like a drop of water contains all of the oceans
    Think like a tree, be like a tree
    When we all are totally free, then we can truly see
    The cycle of life from nothing to everything like a sphere evolving, and expanding
    Back to nothing and then to everything

    Ἀποκάλυψις (The revelation)Ἰησοῦ (of Jesus)Χριστοῦ (Christ)

    Chapter 22

    Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve [kinds of] fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him; They will see His face, and His name [will be] on their foreheads. And there will no longer be [any] night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever.

    And he said
    to me, "These words are faithful and true"; and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent His angel to show to His bond-servants the things which must soon take place.

    "And behold,
    I am coming quickly. Blessed is he who heeds the words of the prophecy of this book."

    I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed me these things. But he said to me, "Do not do that. I am a fellow servant of yours and of your brethren the prophets and of those who heed the words of this book. Worship God."

    And he said
    to me, "Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. "Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy."

    I am coming quickly, and My reward [is] with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end."

    are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the
    tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.

    "I, Jesus,
    have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star."
    The Spirit and the bride say, "Come." And let the one who hears say, "Come." And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost. I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.

    He who testifies to these things says, "Yes, I am coming quickly." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

    The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and state - for the record - that i believe that the so-called "Christian Church" was co-opted by the Roman oligarchy {i.e., the Roman Senatorial families} no later than 311 A.D., after Constantine had his so-called "Vision" before the Battle of the Milvian Bridge.

    Since this is the case, the understanding of the so-called "Trinity" was seriously altered in the aftermath of that hostile corporate takeover by the oligarchy. Further, I suggest that the former understanding of the Godhead among the primitive Christians in the years before the co-opting of the "Church" by the Roman Senate was of a more organic nature. Indeed that it was much more in harmony with the Understanding of the Yin & Yang of primitive Taoism.

    There is epistemological evidence of this in the New Testament itself; for it speaks of Wisdom {SOPHIA in the Greek / Hochma (
    ) in the Hebrew} as a Divine Presence.
