The author refutes claims in some study Bibles that God was concerned about the church having no cold drinking water or not being able to take a hot bath; which are not deeds. However, God is concerned about the temperature of the heart. The Stoic Annaeus Seneca read about a noted Doctor, Charmis condemning former doctors recommending Hot baths anyway (Natural History Book 29:10 by Pliny the Elder). The stoics would have copied the Egyptian priests in bathing in cold water (Herodotus Book 2:37) St. Paul wrote a letter to the Laodicean church which was destroyed not lost because of its contents. Nevertheless, 2nd century Christians reproduced the spirit of Paul’s letter in his spirit that was favorable to the Laodiceans. St. Paul was cured by the stoic Ananias Seneca from the scales on his eyes inducing blindness. Emilia Lanier, the first woman to publish poetry in England described Paul’s eye problems: “Sins ugly mists, so blinded had their eyes” The spit of Lukewarm was the ingredient of moisture needed to correct the eyes from the hostile temperatures of sin. Paul would later write Seneca letters addressing the spirit of this issue. The spit of Jesus had the same allegorical power of Ephphatha (which means, “Be opened” in Mark 7:33-35), has Horus, Ra and Thoth had in Egypt. The tree of knowledge of good and evil had a fruit that had the power to open up the eyes of Adam & Eve (Genesis 3:1-7). The spit of Jesus had the power to make men see other men as Tree’s until the eyesight is restored fully (Mark 8:22-25). This tree was based on the Egyptian Criminal Justice System called Tefnut-Maat. The perquisite to having correct vision in the Egyptian court was not eating/swallowing your own heart (i.e. lost my temper and become Hot-angry). When we get to the New Testament a countermand is issued that all foods were declared legal to eat. Did this include that notorious Tree in Genesis? If so was the fruit renamed Tefnut-Maat/moisture/Lukewarm? What did the Stoic historian Pliny the Elder mean when he said “Nature has provided the eye with many thin membranes and hard outside coverings as a protection against cold and heat she cleans the eyes with moisture....” (Natural History Book 11:147). How do these two Bible quotes below relate to Pliny and the 3rd chapter of Revelations? “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God” (Matthew 5:8) “Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God”. All of these questions will be answered to explain how Lukewarm is based on an Egyptian goddess. Lukewarm is the Temperature of justice. Plutarch, in his essay Isis & Osiris p.83: “Egypt, moreover, which has the blackest of soils, they call by the same name as the black portion of the eye, ‘Chemia (Ham), and compare it to a heart,; for it is warm and moist,… like the heart in a man’s left side”. The Stoic Zeno taught the breath of the soul is warm (Lives of Eminent Philosophers Volume 2 p.261 By Diogenes Laertius). This is the condition of “Lukewarm” in which you had to be in front of the court of judgement in Egypt. For this reason of Racism that led to the attack of Ham’s eye’s as “homosexual” and the Criminal Justice System (Tree of right & wrong), would open your eyes (Genesis 3:1-7). This is why Plutarch wrote that Satan by nature is “opposed to moisture (Justice)” p.97. A second century, born in Africa, Christian, Minucius Felix said: “The Stoics firmly maintain that when the moisture is dried out, the universe must all take fire” (Octavius 34:2). Your heart, along with your eyes, have to be warm (Lukewarm) and moist with righteousness to get in heaven is abundantly clear. And only a league of Demons could oppose this as recorded. Just because Webster’s collegiate dictionary 11th edition defined lukewarm as “Lacking conviction, half-hearted” doesn’t mean they had the correct spiritual interpretation of things they know not. Lukewarm was and is the temperature of justice that couldn’t face the waft of being swallowed up. The words Luke & Look are phonetically/homophonically sounding alike and I see as linked together especially as a clue to a pun. Luke is associated with a doctor of healing likewise Tefnut “the heat of heaven” maybe named when moisture drawn by the sun from lakes and seas is partially evaporated to heaven like 75% of our body is made up of water. Is it a coincidence that we call Law Enforcement, our instruments of justice, the “heat”? To “see god” (i.e become cured/healed) are popular themes well known in Egyptian Literature. Let nobody bounce you off your square and become Hot or Cold towards Justice. Have a warm heart and get yourself a copy of this here book of mine. If you keep looking (Luking) warm towards me we can all keep our eyes on the prize.
