The Forms and The Ties That Bind

Recommended Posts

For a little while around 2000, "What Would Jesus Do" (WWJD) became a popular catchphrase.  Many Christians wore wristbands or bracelets with WWJD on it to remind themselves to think about Christ in their daily actions and lives.  Did they really know who Christ is?  Did they really understand who the Son of Man is?  Given they were taught a Post Modern Mush god or Official Script, they may have had false perceptions of who Jesus is.  God revealed to me a concept to help break false perceptions.  I had been calling it The Ties That Bind, but it is related to Plato and the Forms.  

The following are two past related posts that help explain what The Ties That Bind are and how The Forms work with the Bible:

 "Have Gun Will Travel:Christianity and the Ties That Bind"

"The Forms"

The Son of Man is The Form of something.  To get the best picture of The Form of the Son of Man, we look at a variety of scriptures that reference The Son of Man.  

  • The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ But wisdom is proved right by her deeds.” (Matthew 11:19)
  • Jesus replied, "Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head." (Luke 9:58)

What would Jesus do?  Your average Christian in 2000 may have overlooked these two scriptures.  He may have been told God is love, and to love your enemies as yourself, and a variety of other things. They had a Form of who Jesus was in their minds.  They may of had a false perception.  Given some scriptures change someone's perception of who Jesus is, someone had a false perception.  They need to look at the bigger picture, and change their perceptions.  The Forms provide a good way in which to do this, and to study the Bible.  

King David was a Warrior King.  He is part of prophecy. 

  • 9 Instead, they will serve the Lord their God  and David their king, whom I will raise up for them.  (Jeremiah 30:9)

Introducing David into the bigger picture of who Jesus is may change the perception of many people who believed in a Post Modern Mush god.  King David was a Warrior King.  He is a part of Prophecy.  In Jeremiah 30, Israel is reestablished.  Israel is currently a State, and Culturally Jewish people live there.  

King David is a Warrior King.  Reading the New Testament from an Old Testament perspective, Jesus is The Lord.  Jesus as a Prophet could not contradict himself or the Prophets.  God spoke through the Prophets.  

  • The LORD is a warrior; the LORD is his name.  (Exodus 15:3)  
  • The LORD will march out like a champion, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies.  (Isaiah 42:13)  
  • Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.  (Matthew 10:34)  
  • Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.  (John 15:13)  

In working to understand who Jesus is, do all these these scriptures line up with someone's understanding of who Jesus is?  

No?  They have a false perception of who God is.  They have placed stumbling blocks between them and God.  

Yes?  They may be on the verge of finding God in a big way.  The Holy Ghost is a teacher and a councilor.  

The Forms is a useful tool for Bible Study.  What is The Form of The Son of Man?

Question:  What else can be done with The Forms and Christianity?  

God has a character.  Spirits have various characters.  Jesus cast out Spirits.  

Various heresies in Christian history may have been dressed up differently.  They may have been of a specific spirit.  Utilizing The Forms and "Enduring Spiritual Themes" someone may learn to see this.  

Baal Worship involved Temple Prostitution.  There are references to prostitution in Ezekiel 16 and Ezekiel 23 and Revelations 17.  Baal Worship may have been The Form of something.  Anywhere there is ritualized sex that may be a Form of Temple Prostitution.  Given you study Rasputin from Russia there was The Form of something there.  The Form of what Rasputin did is similar to "The Children of God," a cult from the US in which Rose McGowan was from?  
They are very similar, The Form of something, but dressed up a little differently?  

What is The Form of Righteousness or Wickedness?  The Pagans were wicked and they didn't have Sabbath?    There is no Rest for The Wicked?  That would be like Britany Spears in some of her videos?  

There are a variety of Bible Studies someone may conduct with this.
