THE TEMPERAMENT & TEMPERATURE OF THE BIBLE By Andre Austin Q. Was the temperature term of “Lukewarm” related to stoicism and some ancient Egyptian terminology? A. Yes. Lukewarm, the stoics and the Egyptian Tefnut (Maat=heat of Heaven) are all linked. So let us connect the dots. Basically your temperature of your body will be the same as it is depending if you in hell (Hot) or if you are in Heaven (Warm/Cool). 1. Lukewarm A. (Rev 3:14) is spit out because its neither Hot or Cold B. Lukewarm=A balance between Hot and Cold C. A Temperament of self-control between Hot-hearts & Cold-hearts see (2 Cor 11:29 & Matthew 24:12). The passions of Hot and Cold sin are not to be returned with reciprocity see Proverbs 22:24 & Romans 12:20-21 2. Tefnut was food for the righteous who were “cool” from sin and shielded from the hot flames of hell. Don’t confuse “cool” with cold. A. Spit out at birth B. “heat of heaven”/dew (Manna is made by dew which is equated with JC’s body (John 6) C. Maat=Balance, Right, truth, law, Level, opposite of hot/cold heart but “cool” in Balance. 3. Stoics/Stoicism advocated an indifference to Hot & Cold. A. Seneca was a major proponent of Stoics philosophy who studied meteorology (Temp of earth’s atmosphere) in Egypt. Being a meteorologist in Egypt Seneca would have known about Tefnut and it shows in his letters. B. Seneca advocated an indifference to Hot & Cold on a physical level and spiritual level which would lead to a noble life. C. Seneca defines a noble life as being “square” and “Level” which are also attributes of Tefnut/Maat.
