This is the post excerpt.


Do to my extraordinary spiritual experience coupled with intense study, I have acquired spiritual knowledge and biblical insight not available to the average Christian. I have started this blog to humbly share this valuable experience and insight. I have witnessed many truths in the Holy Bible. I saw Jesus dressed as a shepherd with a staff in His right hand when I was a nine year old boy. I have witnessed the love of a most magnificent Savior reaching out into the very depths of hell to save souls. I have heard the voice of my Father God say, “the battle against good and evil has been here since the beginning of time.” God battles evil by salvaging souls through His Son, Jesus Christ. His voice sounds of greatness beyond this world. The sound of power wisps around His words as He speaks. I have seen the Holy Spirit and got to know Him. I will be showing photographs of Him and detailing some of His works. I also have seen an angel with wings and heard his beautiful voice calling out my name. I have had encounters with aliens, and like many others, believe that they are some of the fallen angels. I have also seen, heard, and got to know demons and the unhealthy dead who are without God in the afterlife. It is the human condition that we are inherently more evil when we fall into the state or condition of hell. The human spirits are likened the devil. They, as with demons, can drive a person mad (insane or psychotic) and make a person delusional. They have anger and hatred in their hearts. Their souls are in ruins. They thirst for all that only a most loving Creator can give them. They are in need of Christ’s divine powers of salvaging the soul and removing the anger and hatred from their hearts. Only then, can they be good spirits, and be with God, Jesus, the angels, family and friends in heaven. This is God’s calling for mankind, and to go against it, is to go against all that we were created for.

A Christian Biblical Study of the Holy Spirit & Spiritual Orbs

This is written to give a Christian biblical perspective on spiritual orbs. I will proceed to demonstrate how these spiritual orbs are supernatural and divine. The photographs that I will be presenting are of the Holy Spirit and some of His works. These photographs and videos have been a mystery to mankind for decades. The Holy Spirit is highly misunderstood in the world. Many have seen Him, but few have recognized Him. He is erroneously known as paranormal orbs, spirit orbs, angel orbs, and ghost orbs. Some people who have not seen orbs with their naked eyes believe them to be photographic anomalies. To understand the Holy Spirit, we must consult scripture. I will be using both the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible.

Identifying the Holy Spirit

This is a photograph of the Holy Spirit descending like a dove as He did during the baptism of Jesus.

Below is a painting of the Apostle Saint Andrew with the Holy Spirit upon Him.

Holy Spirit upon Saint Andrew

The Halo is found in scripture as the Holy Spirit alighting and remaining upon Jesus.

The Spirit of God and the Spirit are both one and the same Holy Spirit.

Mathew 3:16. When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.

John 1:32. John testified saying, “I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him.” 

The center photograph above is of the Holy Spirit in His spirit body form.

Luke 3:22. And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”

The Holy Spirit alighting and remaining upon Jesus appeared as a Halo.

The Spirit of truth is another title for the Holy Spirit.

John 14:17. the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. 

N.K.J.V. Scholastic Commentary: Neither sees Him nor knows Him does not mean merely that the world is not able to visually identify the Holy Spirit because He is spirit. Something more is meant: The Spirit of God is active in the world, but His acts go unnoticed by the world (1 Cor. 2:14.).

Not only is the world in general unable to visually identify the Holy Spirit, His acts go unnoticed as well.

My thoughts on the Halo

The Holy Spirit appears to be revealing to us through the Halo that He is the breath of life given to all mankind in the very beginning by God.

This is not to be confused with the life Christ gives us through the Spirit of truth.

Genesis 2:7. And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

The term “Spirit” translates the Hebrew word ruah which in it’s primary sense, means breath, air, wind.

God gave man life through His Holy Spirit.

I believe that the breath of life went into man’s nostrils and is located over and throughout the brain giving us life. Hence, the Halo is over the head, representing the Holy Spirit giving us life. And without the breathe of life, the brain would not function and we would have no life in this world. The breath of life is connected to our spirits by the silver cord. When the silver cord is loosed, we are cut off from the breath of life, the brain dies, we become disconnected from our bodies, and are no longer part of this physical world.

Ecclesiastes 12:6-7. Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed, Or the golden bowl is broken, Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, Or the wheel broken at the well. Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, And the spirit will return to God who gave it.

I believe that the Halo would be the Holy Spirit’s rightful place in revealing to us that He is the breath of life given to all mankind in the very beginning by God. And thus the Halo does not have to be limited to Christianity.

Chariots of God

The chariots of God are the living works of the Holy Spirit.

Artist rendition of Ezekiel’s Vision of God (based on scripture).

What you are looking at above appearing before Ezekiel, a beloved prophet of the Holy Bible, is Father God on His throne, a firmament, Cherubim (living creatures), and what Ezekiel describes as “a wheel in the middle of a wheel” – this is an orbital description of a great living chariot of God.

Excerpt from, Ezekiel’s Vision of God –

Ezekiel 1:15-21. Now as I look at the living creatures, behold, a wheel was on the earth beside each living creature with it’s four faces. The appearance of the wheels and their workings was like the color of beryl, and all four had the same likeness. The appearance of their workings was, as it were, a wheel in the middle of a wheel. When they moved, they went toward any one of four directions; they did not turn aside when they went. As for the rims, they were so high they were awesome, and their rims were full of eyes, all around the four of them. When the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up. Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, because there the spirit went, and the wheels were lifted together with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. When those went, these went, when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up together with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.

Below is a photograph of a spirit in one of the many small chariots of God.

Small Chariot of God

Ezekiel 1:21. “for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.”

………………….. “for the spirit of the living creature is in the orb.”

Ezekiel 1:19. “when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.”

……………………”when the living creature was lifted up from earth, the orb was lifted up.”

Both good and evil spirits travel in these chariots of God. Below is a Youtube link showing an evil spirit flying in a small chariot of God. The “orb” cannot be seen, but the face of the spirit can.

Paranormal Exposure,Hard Evidence,JUST REAL JUST IS

Their appearances have been reported around the world, demonstrating the omnipresence of the Holy Spirit.

Psalm 68:17. The chariots of God are twenty thousands, Even thousands of thousands. The Lord is among them as in Sinai, in the Holy Place.

Spirit of truth

Please notice the pupil in the human eye.


The center dot in the photograph below is the pupil of the Spirit of truth.

The photo above is of the Spirit of truth looking directly at the camera man and bearing witness to him taking the photograph.

1 John 5:6. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.

The Holy Spirit also bears witness to our consciousness.

Romans 9:1. I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying. my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit.

It is through the Spirit that Father God, Jesus, and the higher angels and saints hear our prayers.

Romans 8:26. Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groaning’s which cannot be uttered.

Eyes of the Lord

Father God and His Son, Jesus demonstrate Their omnipresence here on earth through the eyes of the Lord. The eyes of the Lord are one with the Holy Spirit, the Father and Son.

2 Chronicles 16:9. For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.

Psalm 34:15. The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry.

Psalm 33:18-19. Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who hope in His mercy. To deliver them from death,

The Holy Spirit glorifies Christ

Jesus said to the Apostles –

John 16:13. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak, and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.

Romans 8:16. The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.

Our Lady of Guadalupe

Our Lady of Guadalue

It is said that this image miraculously appeared on fabric December 12, 1531. Please notice the oblong orb surrounding the Blessed Mother of God and the angel.

NASA has discovered of Our Lady of Guadalupe to be living.

“The space agency NASA (USA) published the results of research made over the icon Our Lady of Guadalupe.”

“Sensational was the fact that analysis of opthalmologic eye reduction Mary showed pupil at the approach of light and the expansion at its disposal as it happens with the eyes of the living person.”

“Also, researchers found that tissue temperature, which depicted an image, meets healthy human body temperature – 36.6 degrees.”

“When listening to the body Mary stethoscope, the researchers found a significant heart rate of 115 beats per minute, which corresponds to the baby’s heartbeat which is in the womb.”


My thoughts on the Holy Spirit’s Memory & the Spiritual Power of Teleportation

The Holy Spirit has a living memory and it is absolutely perfect.

Imagine the painting below being a painting of the Holy Spirit’s memory of a time when Jesus was in His human body and praying to Father God.

Father, Forgive Them....

This memory would literally be a living spirit identical to Jesus at that time with all His thoughts, feelings, personality, and powers. It would be an exact copy of Him at that time.

One of the powers that God has brought into the spirit world is the power of teleportation. This is done through the Holy Spirit’s memory. A spirit at point A goes into nothingness and is recreated at point B by the Holy Spirit.

Artwork Inspired by God

I believe that God has been inspiring great artists for centuries now.

Acrylic painting inspired by God through a dream.

By: Child Prodigy Akiane Kramarick entitled, “Pyramid.”

…In one of my dreams I saw the image of white pyramids beaten by ocean waves and surrounded by live bubbles.

Unlike most of my paintings, I had no idea what those symbols meant, but I painted them anyway.

Today the meaning still remains a riddle…

Akiane Kramarick

It appears that God is inspiring a modern day artistic genius to paint, “live bubbles.”

On Spiritual Tunnels

Elijah Ascends to Heaven –

2 KINGS 2:1. And when it came to pass, when the LORD was about to take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind,…

Elijah would have traveled in a spiritual whirlwind (tunnel) on his way to heaven.

The LORD would have done this through His Holy Spirit.

Here is a picture of a physical whirlwind.


2 KINGS 2:11. …Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

Miraculously Cured of Hepatitis C

Many years ago, I drank from the cup of a questionable person with bleeding gums. Afterwards, I had contracted jaundice, a symptom of hepatitis C which causes a yellowing of the skin. Shortly afterwards, I was diagnosed with hep C. At the time, it was an incurable disease. I read that this disease can take 10 years off your life! I cried out to Jesus! My test scores began coming back negative with no signs of ever having it in the first place…I have had many blood tests done since then and not one came back positive for Hep C anti-bodies. I believe it was Jesus as Healer who cured me. Jesus added 10 years to my life. And now, I have a job that requires clean blood and much of what I own, including this computer I’m typing on, comes from it. This is another way in which the Lord has truly provided for me and my family. Thank you, Jesus.

Mark 16:17-18 These signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will drive out demons, they will speak new languages. They will pick up serpents [with their hands], and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them. They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.

Here is a testimony of Jesus healing a ten year old child of hepatitis C and a doctor confirming it –

Healed of Hepatitis C

Seeing & Hearing my “Guardian Angel”

This is a true story about seeing and hearing an angel whom I consider to be my “Guardian Angel.” It is written for the love of all heavenly angels.

Psalm 34:7. The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them.

Shortly after Jesus had found me, I saw a spirit’s profile with praying hands, before my eyes. At the time, I thought that it was the dead and that they had the right idea by praying. A few days later, I saw the same vision and thought the same thing…not knowing that it was an angel from God. Again, a few days goes by and I saw it, his whole spirit form, wings and all, with praying hands. And starting with his wings, he began being dressed in the purest of whites. I knew he was an angel before he flew away and was out of my sight. He has a beautiful slim figure and was created perfect for flight. When I had seen his hands closely the first two times, I had seen them so clearly that I could honestly say that he most likely has fingerprints just like ours. About a week goes by and I heard his beautiful voice calling out my name. His voice is much more beautiful than any human voice. It was obvious to me that this was a magnificent creature and above us humans here on earth. About a month later, after I had been persecuted by the dead, he stood by my bedside and put his head on mine, showing me that he loved me and cared. They truly are loving creatures.

John 20:12. And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

This song mentions angels calling a person out by their name –

The Black Crowes – She Talks To Angels (original video)

Once, during an early dark morning hour, a man came up to my wife with a gun. And, an invisible supernatural force had pushed him back. The man got scared and fled. I believe that it was my wife’s guardian angel that protected her.

Psalm 91:10-12. No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Thank you, God, for all your beautiful angels. Amen.

Dreams and the Spirit World

We can witness the spirit world in our dreams. Often times we are out of our bodies and in the spirit world while dreaming. We can witness the dead and some of the powers of that world. Sometimes, a person can witness the spirits of deceased friends and family members. And the spirit’s of living people as well.

An angel of the Lord came to Joseph in a dream to tell him that the child was of the Holy Spirit and not to be afraid to take Mary as his wife.

Mathew 1:20. But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.

Saint Joseph was in the spirit world with the angel while dreaming. Edgar Cayce revealed that dreams are journeys into the spirit world and the Holy Bible confirms this.

Nightmares have demonic influence. The demon tempts the recovering alcoholic by putting a can of beer in his or her hand in a dream. What we are dealing with is a complex hidden battle between us and demonic forces on a subconscious and unconscious level in our dreams. They prey on our weaknesses.

“Saint Augustine of Hippo (d. 430 C.E.) left several writings clearly expressing his opinion that dreams can come from several sources: from the divine, from below, or simply from everyday life.”

“St. Augustine also discusses lucid dreaming in one of his letters – as evidence of life after death.”

“Aliens” are some of the Fallen Angels

Some Christians, including myself, believe that aliens are some of the fallen angels.

The UFO Conspiracy – Truth: “Aliens” are Fallen Angels

Senior bibliographer from the Library of Congress, Miss Lynn E. Catoe wrote the government document, UFOs AND RELATED SUBJECTS: An Annotated Bibliography, and summarizes her findings. She wrote, “A large part of the available UFO literature is closely linked with mysticism and the metaphysical. It deals with subjects like mental telepathy, automatic writing and invisible entities as well as phenomenon like poltergeist manifestation and possession. Many of the UFO reports now being published in the popular press recount alleged incidents that are strikingly similar to demonic possession and psychic phenomena that have long been known to theologians and parapsychologists.”

We know them by their works:

Mathew 7:16. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles?

Because it is sometimes so unbelievable, the truth escapes being known. Heraclitus (500 B.C.)

Will aliens be part of Armageddon…the end of times?

yuzyh9yNotice the resemblance between the frog and the alien.

Is the alien with their U.F.O.’s, the prince of the power of the air?

Ephesians 2:2. In which in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience:

The Annunaki, also known as Nephilim.

“Who were the Annunaki? They were the Watchers, Watchmen assigned to earth to watch over Yahweh’s Creation in the Garden of Eden and Earth . They were created by God as perfect Angels. These Watchers rebelled against God and their assignment and a mutiny followed as they abandoned their mission to oversee humans and began to defile the women of the earth by having offspring with them. This led to a giant defect in the DNA of the offspring and an eventual almost complete contamination of the human DNA. By the time Yahweh destroyed the world with a flood because of this contamination, only one family on earth was left with pure human DNA. But even after the flood, the Watchers kept revolting and even more were punished and cast out of heaven losing their first estate and habitation, as they continued to defile women and human DNA (Genesis 6:4) This hybridization and corruption of the human DNA is still very much a part of our world although the giant defect has been corrected and most hybridization goes undetected. Why is the church silent on UFOs, Aliens, abductions, implantations, and forced breedings?”

Sherry Shriner

Genesis 6:4. There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

N.K.J.V. Scholastic Commentary: The sons of God refer to a different group from either the men or their daughters. The phrase clearly means “angels.” Job 1:6 presents Satan and his angels coming into the presence of the LORD for an audience with His Majesty. Satan’s angels are there called “the sons of God,” with the suggestion that these angelic beings were ounce holy ones who served the Lord, but were now allied with the evil one. Genesis assumes the existence of the good angels of the Lord (see 3:24) and of Satan and his angels, it also assumes that the later are already fallen and under God’s judgment (see 1:2). In 3:1, the serpent (Satan) was already as the father of lies (John 8:44). Here it appears that some of Satan’s angels, spirit beings, took on human form (see 3:24) and, out of a perverted lust, seduced women. In response, God reserved these angels for special judgment (2 Pet 2:4; Jude 6) and cleansed the earth itself (with the Flood).

2 Corinthians 2:11. in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.

My Personal Encounters with Aliens

My story begins one night while laying awake in bed. I was accustomed at this time in my life to seeing and hearing spirits. A knowing spirit with powers recreated from memory the sound of a spacecraft and teleported an alien in spirit to my bedside. The alien spirit spoke in a highly technological sounding language that resembled an old telegraph machine. Upon recognizing that I could not understand him, he said the word “human” and then vanished. It is my belief that a knowing angelic being did this to inform me that I would be or have been paid a visit by this alien in body arriving in a spacecraft. I believe this was a prophetic vision of aliens being in my life and collecting my DNA for cloning.

A few years later my wife and I had seen my doppelganger (spirit-double). The lowly dead of the spirit world called it a clone. Then it was revealed to me by a much higher being that I had truly been cloned. As I laid awake in bed, a progression of spirits in the cloning process had laid upon me. About five in total with the first having the most slim covering its’ bodily form and its’ mouth filled with a thick mucus-like substance. They appeared to have been in a vat of a thick gel-like substance.

This next encounter was a physical one. I was running a fever one night and sleeping. I hadn’t had a fever in years and it was no coincidence that I was running one this night. My wife and I had the fan blowing up our noses and could easily smell things in the room. My fever began to suddenly rise and I began squirming in bed violently. I was awakening when I smelt their scent. They smelt as though they come from the water. Although I did not see them, there was an obvious alien presence in the room. They quickly vanished from the bedroom and their scent went away. My wife later said that she felt something pulling on her legs and smelling sulfur. This scenario brings to mind the Legend of the Doppelganger. Legend has it that if a person sees their own doppelganger (spirit-double), it means imminent death. I believe that the aliens were there to harm me that night and my protector Father God or Jesus had intervened by making my fever go up, chasing them away and saving my life.


Salvation for the Dead (A Practical Guide)

The following practice is based on the premise that in order for Christ’s redemptive work of salvation to be complete, and for Christ to be the Savior of all mankind, salvation must reach to all humans in all places of all times.

In both, the Old Testament and New Testament, sin offerings were made for the atonement of sins.

Numbers 28:30. Include one male goat to make atonement for you.

Hebrews 5:3. And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.

Today, it is common practice for the dead in purgatory to obtain indulgence from God through the Catholic Church for remission of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven (C.C.C., X. Indulgences). So, in other words, the Catholic Church intervenes for the individual by asking God, who stores up our good works, to apply some of them in lieu of punishment due to sins. But these indulgences are limited to those who die in the communion of saints – the faithful dead only.

The Churches fail to teach the complete redemptive work of Christ. The Gospel work of salvation must reach to all humans in all places of all times.

Mark 16:15. He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

We must learn to search scripture with the loving heart of Jesus.

Lamentations 3:31-30. For no one is cast off by the Lord forever. Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to anyone.

Jesus descended into hell for three days to deliver the faithful dead with His sacrificial blood atonement.

1 Peter 4:6. For this reason the gospel was preached also to the dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in spirit.

Jesus now holds the keys to death and Hades. The unfaithful dead in hell can be saved. Otherwise, the redemptive work of Christ would not be complete and we fall short of the glory of God.

Revelations 1:18. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.

One of the attributes of God is that He goes unchanging. And Jesus would still hold the keys of death and Hades. He would still be salvaging and delivering the souls of the dead to heaven. This is the one true Son of God. This is the Jesus, Christians should get to know.

Our good works can be offered up to Christ as atonement for the sins of those who died without faith and are now in hell. Atonement is necessary because they did not have faith in their lifetimes. This completes the gospel work of salvation. To say otherwise, is to cut short the redemptive work of Christ.

2 Maccabees 12:46. Thus he made atonement for the dead that they might be freed from this sin.

It is all the same for God to free prisoners in this world from their captives as it is for Christ to free prisoners from their captives in the spirit world.

Zechariah 9:11. As for you, because of the blood of my covenant with you, I will free your prisoners from the waterless pit.

And Christ will free prisoners in hell through you because of the blood of the covenant He has with you. This is a blessing bestowed upon us by our Lord.

And, it is by the power of God that salvation is made for us and the dead.

1 Corinthians 1:18. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

Let’s not fail to see the significance of being able to offer up our goods works as atonement for the sins of the lost souls in hell. Your family, friends and even strangers who died without faith can have their souls restored (salvaged) by the divine power of Christ and be with God, Jesus, the angels, family and friends in heaven. One must be in good standing with God and have the door closed to all unhealthy spirits before atonement will be accepted. Although, atonement is required of us for the forgiveness of the sins of the unfaithful dead in hell, it is by the Lord’s sacrifice that the souls of the dead can be salvaged. And that heaven and hell are open. Glory goes to Father God and His Son, Jesus Christ. It is a privilege to partake in the heavenly family business of salvation and an even greater honor to work so closely with Christ in salvaging souls.

1 Corinthians 15:19. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.

The offering up of good works to Christ as atonement for sins of those who died without faith is the only true way that Christ’s redemptive work of salvation is complete. This is a necessary component in our Lord’s work. Jesus is mighty to save and He will stretch His staff down to the very depths of hell to save souls.

What I say is true, it has been revealed to me by Jesus Christ Himself.

1 Thessalonians 5:19-21. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good,

In conclusion, this, my friends, is the most loving thing you can do for these poor, lost souls. And, may God bless you for such an undertaking.

I would like to share with you an Ancient Homily that was read for Holy Saturday…the day Jesus had died on the cross. I do hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

The Lord’s descent into hell

“What is happening? Today there is a great silence over the earth, a great silence, and stillness, a great silence because the King sleeps; the earth was in terror and was still, because God slept in the flesh and raised up those who were sleeping from the ages. God has died in the flesh, and the underworld has trembled.

Truly he goes to seek out our first parent like a lost sheep; he wishes to visit those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death. He goes to free the prisoner Adam and his fellow-prisoner Eve from their pains, he who is God, and Adam’s son.

The Lord goes in to them holding his victorious weapon, his cross. When Adam, the first created man, sees him, he strikes his breast in terror and calls out to all: ‘My Lord be with you all.’ And Christ in reply says to Adam: ‘And with your spirit.’ And grasping his hand he raises him up, saying: ‘Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.

‘I am your God, who for your sake became your son, who for you and your descendants now speak and command with authority those in prison: Come forth, and those in darkness: Have light, and those who sleep: Rise.

‘I command you: Awake, sleeper, I have not made you to be held a prisoner in the underworld. Arise from the dead; I am the life of the dead.Arise, O man, work of my hands, arise, you who were fashioned in my image. Rise, let us go hence; for you in me and I in you, together we are one undivided person.

‘For you, I your God became your son; for you, I the Master took on your form; that of slave; for you, I who am above the heavens came on earth and under the earth; for you, man, I became as a man without help, free among the dead; for you, who left a garden, I was handed over to Jews from a garden and crucified in a garden.

‘Look at the spittle on my face, which I received because of you, in order to restore you to that first divine inbreathing at creation. See the blows on my cheeks, which I accepted in order to refashion your distorted form to my own image.

‘See the scourging of my back, which I accepted in order to disperse the load of your sins which was laid upon your back. See my hands nailed to the tree for a good purpose, for you, who stretched out your hand to the tree for an evil one.

`I slept on the cross and a sword pierced my side, for you, who slept in paradise and brought forth Eve from your side. My side healed the pain of your side; my sleep will release you from your sleep in Hades; my sword has checked the sword which was turned against you.

‘But arise, let us go hence. The enemy brought you out of the land of paradise; I will reinstate you, no longer in paradise, but on the throne of heaven. I denied you the tree of life, which was a figure, but now I myself am united to you, I who am life. I posted the cherubim to guard you as they would slaves; now I make the cherubim worship you as they would God.

“The cherubim throne has been prepared, the bearers are ready and waiting, the bridal chamber is in order, the food is provided, the everlasting houses and rooms are in readiness; the treasures of good things have been opened; the kingdom of heaven has been prepared before the ages.”
