Translating: Wednesday, June 30 is EphesusBmoY, Philippians , Blessed are Those Who Mourn

The latter naming of days puts us more explicitly in a calendar of covenant sequences.

Translating: Wednesday, June 30 is EphesusBmoY, Philippians , Blessed are Those Who Mourn

EphesusBmoY: Each 'week' (now sheba: 7, oath) we go through a covenant sequence from being called in (kol), to a form of judgment and exile (sardis), to growth (pergamos) to a new start with the word (ephesus), to communion in life and death (philadelphia, thyatira), to exodos [sic] (smyrna).

The days are oddly named, for our present house/Beth/B is caused by the past Ephesus and the future day, Yom, written backwards to show such causation.

OK, Philippians week--it's also a covenant sequence, the second set of 7 books, retuned and backward. To learn this, we live it. This Season the 7 are: Colossians, Ephesians, , 2 Corinthians [Public Vindication as a mountain in time], Romans, Philippians, Galatians, 1 Corinthians.

I call this week a 'sheba,' because 'sheba' means seven, and oath, and we want true speech--that puts one's life behind one's words, and thus is an oath that lasts for 7.

These 7 weeks make a season. Each season is one of the Beatitudes and its corresponding Woe. Blessed are those who mourn, and the Woe of Matthew 23:14.

There is more, of course.

The general idea is that we are confronted with a universe made by orderly God, and we are to respond to it in a rightimely manner. When we see some covenant sequences, we learn to see others.

This is also shown in the Symphony of Peace, peace being the explicit reconciliation of opposites.

The Church Year, the fiscal year, academic schedules, work schedules, community celebrations, sports seasons, etc. remain.

Love in King Jesus,

PS: One might take the themes of the 7 books, to see how they make a liturgy. What is God saying, in sum, in Colossians? Ephesians? 2 corinthians? Romans, Philippians, Glastians, 1 Corinthians?
PPS: Oh, we also have the 49-book Bible running 1-49 at the same time. It's easier to see Samuel as a new Genesis, Ruth as a new Exodus, etc. Psalms, Job, Proverbs, Song, Ecclesiastes. [The 49 books in 7 heptamerous chiasms from Jordan, the retuning is mine.]
PPS: 'Chuck' this, get rid of this, as better comes along.
