According to the operations of the Adonai-Spirit, the corrupt sarkos is flayed and the celestial flesh is unbound, such that it is made to grow and fill those regions of the person that were formerly occupied by the corrupt sarkos. The Adonai-Spirit also acts on the prosopon, such that the soul is slowly unbound and restored to its natural, uncorrupted state.
The Christus-Spirit acts on the faculties of the intellect, granting special insight into secret divine acts in the world. This secret insight is incommunicable; it cannot be shared through created words. The Christus-Spirit also forms a secret, invisible, trans-temporal, trans-spacial bond of eros that unites one human to another. The Christus-Spirit builds the ecclesial body. This is what we mean when we speak more generally of a ‘common operation’ of the Spirit.
Let us propose a distinction between Christus-pneumatological action and Adonai-pneumatological action. In addition, let us propose that the human being is tripartite, being made up of body, intellect, and soul.
Furthermore, let us say that the body is made up of two kinds of material, the corrupt sarkos and a celestial flesh. Given the utter corruption of the human, let us also say that the soul is bifurcated: it is prosopon and anima. The former is the mask placed over the soul, which obscures its native clarity, and the latter the élan vital that provokes the soul to action. The formation of the prosopon is the work of the Satan. The prosopon is the principle that grounds duplicity and self-deception. So long as the soul wears the mask, it is bound by evil. In a word, the anima is enslaved to the prosopon.
Reader, please observe that a theology of the mask, derived from the iconographic theologies of the East, has been reflected on elsewhere.
“Behold, my servant shall prosper” (Isaiah 52:13a)
For when he appeared, his servant prospered.
In his Cainite humanity, he became sin to those who knew no sin.
Yet in his Adamic humanity, he became an atoning sacrifice.
He bore away the sin of the first parents, and by his stripes, the Garden was restored.
But the Cain principle is older than Eden.
There is another realm–younger than heaven; older than earth–where the serpent lies down with wolves.
He who atoned for Adam has not atoned for Cain.
And so two principles wage war in your flesh:
spirit-flesh (Christos/Adam); and flesh-flesh (Cain/Adam).
He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
Let the reader beware.
Then Jacob took fresh sticks of poplar and almond and plane trees, and peeled white streaks in them, exposing the white of the sticks. He set the sticks that he had peeled in front of the flocks in the troughs, that is, the watering places, where the flocks came to drink. And since they bred when they came to drink, the flocks bred in front of the sticks and so the flocks brought forth striped, speckled, and spotted. And Jacob separated the lambs and set the faces of the flocks toward the striped and all the black in the flock of Laban. He put his own droves apart and did not put them with Laban’s flock. Whenever the stronger of the flock were breeding, Jacob would lay the sticks in the troughs before the eyes of the flock, that they might breed among the sticks, but for the feebler of the flock he would not lay them there. So the feebler would be Laban’s, and the stronger Jacob’s. Thus the man increased greatly and had large flocks, female servants and male servants, and camels and donkeys. (Gen. 30:37-43)
The marked flock contains three kinds: the spotted, the speckled, and the striped. These are all those contained in the strong flocks of Jacob. This is the Adamic humanity set aside at once for deliverance and destruction. The spotted bear the sign of promise, the speckled bear the sign of rejection, and the striped bear the sign of healing. As it is written, By the stripes they are healed (Is. 53:5). The drink the mating flocks consume is the lifeblood of Abel, the gardener. It is the drink that cried out from the ground to the LORD. It is now the philter of the Adamic flocks. The sticks represent the ancient ribcage of Eden, which was preserved for the preserving of the Adamic flocks.
The plain flock is the Cainite humanity, the weaker lot. These are the flocks of the descendent of Cain, Laban. Because of their weakness, they are culled from the flocks of Jacob and sent into the land of perishing. These are the ones gathered only to be scattered per mundi labyrinthum. Rachel referred to these when she exclaimed, “Behold, the LORD has taken away my disgrace.”
What shall we say of this thirteenth womb, the temporal sack of decay, the tomb of the Mother? We say that it is as the Sheol. As we know, the Woman of Endor can access this place. This is proven by the sin of First Saul. Has the thirteenth womb been razed, as hell was razed? No, for it persists. The present specter is the teachings of Second Saul, Thaddeus.
A voice cries out,
Lupus-Cain, come forth,
You wretched creature.
But Lupus-Cain does not answer,
For he has been taught
To remain silent.
Therefore, in this present age
Lupus-Cain longs to depart
From the cage of the twelfth womb, Petrus,
And inhabit the moldering chamber
Of the thirteenth womb.
The hope of Lupus-Cain:
In the final hours, a voice
Will cry out, Lupus-Cain, come forth,
And his flesh will be made a phantasm
Before the face of the Saul.
Mother Church has a thirteenth womb, an odd number. It is, however, a dead womb, a place of death. It is as the womb of de-creation that consumed the dove and prophet, Jonah. This womb is first manifest in the of Son of Destruction, and is carried forward in the antinomian teaching of the Saul. It is the tomb of Mother Church, the living vineyard of death.
Mother Church has twelve wombs, which are divided into two sets of six to symbolize the creative work of the LORD in the beginning. These twelve wombs are the apostles commissioned by the Teacher to preach the news of his coming and reign.
