As if the debate on the serpent-seed was not enough for most mainstream christians to want to lynch or burn me at the stake, thanks to Shaun Osygus I must present my understandings on the Godhead and that the Holy Spirit is referenced as being female within all Scripture including the KJV, Apocrypha, and other extra-Bibilical sources. To establish this premise let me share this quote from the Gospel of the Hebrews.
Origen on John, ii. 12. And if any accept the Gospel according to the Hebrews, where the Saviour himself saith, 'Even now did my mother the Holy Spirit take me by one of mine hairs, and carried me away unto the great mountain Thabor', he will be perplexed, &c. . . . - Gospel of the Hebrews
The following passages comprise the second chapter of my 11th book, The Great Contest - War In Heaven called Chapter 2 - Barbelo - The Holy Spirit (Wisdom).
Wishing to unfold the visible realms from that which was imperishable, the Holy Spirit is referenced in the Nag Hammadi codices as Barbelo, the Mother and feminine aspect of the Trinity. It is said in concept that Yahweh, the Father filled the Holy Spirit with light and this brought forth into formless union Yahushua Savior Messiah, the Holy Child and only begotten with Them. Together They preceded the creation and though Christ had preexisted with Them it wasn’t until YHWH proclaimed in authority “Let there be light” that Christ was heralded as that light to and by the Angels and creation.
Most have never heard the story of the unfolding of creation by the Holy Trinity in this manner. However, as I will show the premise that I am bringing forth here is biblical and supported by the canonical, extra-biblical, as well as other outside sources. Many may be hesitant to accept or readily support the premise that the Holy Spirit is a feminine principle, that She has a connection with the Godhead, or that She is alluded to as having been with Christ in supporting His manifestation of the world. But as I will show these are principles which are contained, encoded, and elaborated upon by not only accepted authoritative sources but also many extra-biblical and other revered wisdom texts. I will establish and support these premises from all of these divergent sources so as to affirm and clarify such teaching as biblically sound.
My hope is to lay the foundation for you to understand how the Trinity in individuality as YHWH the Father, Holy Spirit as Mother, and Yahushua as the only begotten Son together unveiled the creation. So that you can better conceive in discernment, what role each played in manifesting the universal design. For it was all three together which brought forth all things though we mainly only credit Yahovah as the Creator or Christ as the Word together with the Father, for singing the creation into being as revealed in the Sepher Yetzirah, the Hebrew Book of Creation.
In understanding what I am about to unveil, it is my belief that in bringing forth this teaching that it will become clear that the sovereign ruler of the entire multi-verse imbued with the power of co-creative of instant manifestation. The being referred to as God is Christ as imbued with the authority of the Father and the wisdom of the Holy Spirit together. Considered in Scripture to be the mother, sister, daughter, and bride, the Holy Spirit had also preexisted with Christ and the Father. Together in unison through voiced intention, They spoke all things into expression which is why John said of Christ, “All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.”
I know that the teaching I am about to present here on the androgynous nature of the Holy Trinity will seem foreign in concept to those that have never heard of it. Yet, I will establish this teaching as a biblical truth which though little understood is rooted as a concept within the 66 book King James Version of the Holy Bible. I will then prove that this knowledge is also found in the apocryphal texts which were once part of the original 80 book 1611 Canon.
I will then show that this concept is also referenced in the Nag Hammadi codices which are sometimes sold in compilation as the Secret Teachings of Jesus Christ. I will follow this up in affirmation from many other extra-biblical sources to show that the underlying truth of this revelation is interwoven and encoded throughout the entirety of the gospel teachings wherever they are found as a mainstay of the biblical narrative.
In speaking about wisdom, it is important to understand that many prophets and apostles such as Solomon, Baruch, and even Christ identify Wisdom as a feminine principle. And correlate it synonymously in esoteric reference to what the Nag Hammadi collection cites as Barbelo (the first power, perfect glory), Sophia (wisdom), and Zoe (life). Once one can identify the different names and titles given in aspect to this of the Godhead, one will be able to see how wisdom though defined as feminine in aspect, forms a divine cohesive union with God the Father as the male aspect of its power.
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her. The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. - Proverbs 3:13-19
Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars: - Proverbs 9:1
But wisdom is justified of all her children. - Luke 7:35
Identified as her, wisdom in the above passages, is also said to be “a tree of life" and the particular force by which the Lord God “founded the earth.” These two comparisons are especially intriguing because we know that Christ in similarity is known to be the tree of life and as cited in Proverbs 8, to have preexisted with God before the foundations of the earth were laid or the heavens established as also attributed in conveyance to wisdom in Proverbs 3. Keep these associations in mind as we examine the following references for links uniting wisdom and Christ as they likewise tie into other assertions expressing the same concepts that I would like to emphasize to readers for consideration.
 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.  I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.  When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.  Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:  While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.  When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:  When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:  When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:  Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;  Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.  Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.  Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.  Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.  For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD. - Proverbs 8:23-35
Traditionally the preceding passages are unanimously ascribed as a description of the preexistence of Christ as the ending statement ‘whoso findeth me findeth life’ aligns with the following verse.
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst…” - John 6:35
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” - John 8:12
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” - John 11:25-26
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. - John 14:6
And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. - 1 John 5:20
What is not obvious and little discussed amongst most biblical scholars concerning these passages is that both the Holy Spirit as Wisdom and Christ as the only begotten, are cited in various texts as having preexisted with the Father. In my mind, the only way to understand Wisdom’s connection to Christ within those passages is to conceptualize it as a portion of the triune aspect of the Godhead. And to recognize that each particular aspect YHWH Elohim as the Father, the Holy Spirit as Mother, and Christ as Holy Child, all preexisted with one another in holy union.
Most exclude the Holy Spirit from being a significant component and aspect of the Holy Trinity which assisted Yahushua and YHWH Elohim in bringing forth all things. As humans studying and learning about the Godhead, we have a tendency to recognize only the part played by the Father and Son in creating and influencing the world, yet, the role played out by the Holy Spirit as wisdom, the feminine aspect of the Triune deserves equal recognition, tribute, and honor. One should now be able to understand that Proverbs 3, and 8 are speaking about the preexistence of Christ and wisdom together as one and the same entity.
In my mind, the only way to clearly decipher these two chapters is to recognize that wisdom as feminine concept together with Christ and the Father were responsible for the manifestation of the world. And that it was not just Yahuah and Yahushuah who were responsible for such undertaking such accomplishment but that wisdom, as the Holy Spirit, Holy Mother and feminine aspect of that Trinity, was integral and had a paramount part to play in such unfolding.
Discerning these chapters in this way would also help one to clarify why it is that wisdom is identified with both life and the tree of life since these characteristics as concept have been historically preserved in attribution to Yahushua as the Word of God which spoke, the visible world into creative being. Understanding this principle one will be able to make sense of the underlying truth that links these teachings when attempting to decipher them in context within other scriptural passages which like Proverbs 3, 8, allude to such connection.
 All wisdom cometh from the Lord, and is with him for ever.  Who can number the sand of the sea, and the drops of rain, and the days of eternity?  Who can find out the height of heaven, and the breadth of the earth, and the deep, and wisdom?  Wisdom hath been created before all things, and the understanding of prudence from everlasting.  The word of God most high is the fountain of wisdom; and her ways are everlasting commandments.  To whom hath the root of wisdom been revealed? or who hath known her wise counsels?  [Unto whom hath the knowledge of wisdom been made manifest? and who hath understood her great experience?]  There is one wise and greatly to be feared, the Lord sitting upon his throne.
 He created her, and saw her, and numbered her, and poured her out upon all his works.  She is with all flesh according to his gift, and he hath given her to them that love him.  She hath built an everlasting foundation with men, and she shall continue with their seed.  To fear the Lord is fulness of wisdom, and filleth men with her fruits.  She filleth all their house with things desirable, and the garners with her increase. – Wisdom of Jesus Son of Sirach 1:1-10, 15-17
 Thy life hast thou ordered in wisdom, and hast called understanding thy mother. – 2 Esdras 13:55
If thou desire wisdom, keep the commandments, and the Lord shall give her unto thee. – Wisdom of Jesus Son of Sirach 1:26
As for wisdom, what she is, and how she came up, I will tell you, and will not hide mysteries from you: but will seek her out from the beginning of her nativity, and bring the knowledge of her into light, and will not pass over the truth. – Wisdom of Solomon 6:22
 Hear, Israel, the commandments of life: give ear to understand wisdom.  How happeneth it Israel, that thou art in thine enemies' land, that thou art waxen old in a strange country, that thou art defiled with the dead,  That thou art counted with them that go down into the grave?  Thou hast forsaken the fountain of wisdom.  For if thou hadst walked in the way of God, thou shouldest have dwelled in peace for ever.  Learn where is wisdom, where is strength, where is understanding; that thou mayest know also where is length of days, and life, where is the light of the eyes, and peace.  Who hath found out her place? or who hath come into her treasures ?  Where are the princes of the heathen become, and such as ruled the beasts upon the earth;  They that had their pastime with the fowls of the air, and they that hoarded up silver and gold, wherein men trust, and made no end of their getting?  For they that wrought in silver, and were so careful, and whose works are unsearchable,  They are vanished and gone down to the grave, and others are come up in their steads.  Young men have seen light, and dwelt upon the earth: but the way of knowledge have they not known,  Nor understood the paths thereof, nor laid hold of it: their children were far off from that way.  It hath not been heard of in Chanaan, neither hath it been seen in Theman.  The Agarenes that seek wisdom upon earth, the merchants of Meran and of Theman, the authors of fables, and searchers out of understanding; none of these have known the way of wisdom, or remember her paths.
 O Israel, how great is the house of God! and how large is the place of his possession!  Great, and hath none end; high, and unmeasurable.  There were the giants famous from the beginning, that were of so great stature, and so expert in war.  Those did not the Lord choose, neither gave he the way of knowledge unto them:  But they were destroyed, because they had no wisdom, and perished through their own foolishness.
 Who hath gone up into heaven, and taken her, and brought her down from the clouds?  Who hath gone over the sea, and found her, and will bring her for pure gold?  No man knoweth her way, nor thinketh of her path.  But he that knoweth all things knoweth her, and hath found her out with his understanding: - Baruch 3:9-32
The above verses are just a sample of the many mentions of wisdom found in the apocryphal texts The Wisdom of Jesus, Son Of Sirach, 2 Esdras, The Wisdom Of Solomon, and Baruch which were all once part of the original 80 book King James Version of the Holy Bible. Like Proverbs, they also affirm wisdom as the female facet of the preexistent Godhead. For those that are interested in expounding upon this teaching on wisdom as presented here, one can find the most detailed treatise on wisdom as a concept within Chapters 6 through 12 in the apocryphal text the Wisdom of Solomon.
 Hear therefore, O ye kings, and understand; learn, ye that be judges of the ends of the earth.  Give ear, ye that rule the people, and glory in the multitude of nations.  For power is given you of the Lord, and sovereignty from the Highest, who shall try your works, and search out your counsels.  Because, being ministers of his kingdom, ye have not judged aright, nor kept the law, nor walked after the counsel of God;  Horribly and speedily shall he come upon you: for a sharp judgment shall be to them that be in high places.  For mercy will soon pardon the meanest: but mighty men shall be mightily tormented.  For he which is Lord over all shall fear no man's person, neither shall he stand in awe of any man's greatness: for he hath made the small and great, and careth for all alike.  But a sore trial shall come upon the mighty.  Unto you therefore, O kings, do I speak, that ye may learn wisdom, and not fall away.  For they that keep holiness holily shall be judged holy: and they that have learned such things shall find what to answer.  Wherefore set your affection upon my words; desire them, and ye shall be instructed.  Wisdom is glorious, and never fadeth away: yea, she is easily seen of them that love her, and found of such as seek her.  She preventeth them that desire her, in making herself first known unto them.  Whoso seeketh her early shall have no great travail: for he shall find her sitting at his doors.  To think therefore upon her is perfection of wisdom: and whoso watcheth for her shall quickly be without care.  For she goeth about seeking such as are worthy of her, sheweth herself favourably unto them in the ways, and meeteth them in every thought.  For the very true beginning of her is the desire of discipline; and the care of discipline is love;  And love is the keeping of her laws; and the giving heed unto her laws is the assurance of incorruption;  And incorruption maketh us near unto God:  Therefore the desire of wisdom bringeth to a kingdom.  If your delight be then in thrones and sceptres, O ye kings of the people, honour wisdom, that ye may reign for evermore.  As for wisdom, what she is, and how she came up, I will tell you, and will not hide mysteries from you: but will seek her out from the beginning of her nativity, and bring the knowledge of her into light, and will not pass over the truth.  Neither will I go with consuming envy; for such a man shall have no fellowship with wisdom.  But the multitude of the wise is the welfare of the world: and a wise king is the upholding of the people.  Receive therefore instruction through my words, and it shall do you good.
 I myself also am a mortal man, like to all, and the offspring of him that was first made of the earth,  And in my mother's womb was fashioned to be flesh in the time of ten months, being compacted in blood, of the seed of man, and the pleasure that came with sleep.  And when I was born, I drew in the common air, and fell upon the earth, which is of like nature, and the first voice which I uttered was crying, as all others do.  I was nursed in swaddling clothes, and that with cares.  For there is no king that had any other beginning of birth.  For all men have one entrance into life, and the like going out.  Wherefore I prayed, and understanding was given me: I called upon God, and the spirit of wisdom came to me.  I preferred her before sceptres and thrones, and esteemed riches nothing in comparison of her.  Neither compared I unto her any precious stone, because all gold in respect of her is as a little sand, and silver shall be counted as clay before her.  I loved her above health and beauty, and chose to have her instead of light: for the light that cometh from her never goeth out.  All good things together came to me with her, and innumerable riches in her hands.  And I rejoiced in them all, because wisdom goeth before them: and I knew not that she was the mother of them.  I learned diligently, and do communicate her liberally: I do not hide her riches.  For she is a treasure unto men that never faileth: which they that use become the friends of God, being commended for the gifts that come from learning.  God hath granted me to speak as I would, and to conceive as is meet for the things that are given me: because it is he that leadeth unto wisdom, and directeth the wise.  For in his hand are both we and our words; all wisdom also, and knowledge of workmanship.  For he hath given me certain knowledge of the things that are, namely, to know how the world was made, and the operation of the elements:  The beginning, ending, and midst of the times: the alterations of the turning of the sun, and the change of seasons:  The circuits of years, and the positions of stars:  The natures of living creatures, and the furies of wild beasts: the violence of winds, and the reasonings of men: the diversities of plants and the virtues of roots:  And all such things as are either secret or manifest, them I know.  For wisdom, which is the worker of all things, taught me: for in her is an understanding spirit holy, one only, manifold, subtil, lively, clear, undefiled, plain, not subject to hurt, loving the thing that is good quick, which cannot be letted, ready to do good,  Kind to man, steadfast, sure, free from care, having all power, overseeing all things, and going through all understanding, pure, and most subtil, spirits.  For wisdom is more moving than any motion: she passeth and goeth through all things by reason of her pureness.  For she is the breath of the power of God, and a pure influence flowing from the glory of the Almighty: therefore can no defiled thing fall into her.  For she is the brightness of the everlasting light, the unspotted mirror of the power of God, and the image of his goodness.  And being but one, she can do all things: and remaining in herself, she maketh all things new: and in all ages entering into holy souls, she maketh them friends of God, and prophets.  For God loveth none but him that dwelleth with wisdom.  For she is more beautiful than the sun, and above all the order of stars: being compared with the light, she is found before it.  For after this cometh night: but vice shall not prevail against wisdom.
 Wisdom reacheth from one end to another mightily: and sweetly doth she order all things.  I loved her, and sought her out from my youth, I desired to make her my spouse, and I was a lover of her beauty.  In that she is conversant with God, she magnifieth her nobility: yea, the Lord of all things himself loved her.  For she is privy to the mysteries of the knowledge of God, and a lover of his works.  If riches be a possession to be desired in this life; what is richer than wisdom, that worketh all things?  And if prudence work; who of all that are is a more cunning workman than she?  And if a man love righteousness her labours are virtues: for she teacheth temperance and prudence, justice and fortitude: which are such things, as men can have nothing more profitable in their life.  If a man desire much experience, she knoweth things of old, and conjectureth aright what is to come: she knoweth the subtilties of speeches, and can expound dark sentences: she foreseeth signs and wonders, and the events of seasons and times.  Therefore I purposed to take her to me to live with me, knowing that she would be a counsellor of good things, and a comfort in cares and grief.  For her sake I shall have estimation among the multitude, and honour with the elders, though I be young.  I shall be found of a quick conceit in judgment, and shall be admired in the sight of great men.  When I hold my tongue, they shall bide my leisure, and when I speak, they shall give good ear unto me: if I talk much, they shall lay their hands upon their mouth.  Moreover by the means of her I shall obtain immortality, and leave behind me an everlasting memorial to them that come after me.  I shall set the people in order, and the nations shall be subject unto me.  Horrible tyrants shall be afraid, when they do but hear of me; I shall be found good among the multitude, and valiant in war.  After I am come into mine house, I will repose myself with her: for her conversation hath no bitterness; and to live with her hath no sorrow, but mirth and joy.  Now when I considered these things in myself, and pondered them in my heart, how that to be allied unto wisdom is immortality;  And great pleasure it is to have her friendship; and in the works of her hands are infinite riches; and in the exercise of conference with her, prudence; and in talking with her, a good report; I went about seeking how to take her to me.  For I was a witty child, and had a good spirit.  Yea rather, being good, I came into a body undefiled.  Nevertheless, when I perceived that I could not otherwise obtain her, except God gave her me; and that was a point of wisdom also to know whose gift she was; I prayed unto the Lord, and besought him, and with my whole heart I said,
 O God of my fathers, and Lord of mercy, who hast made all things with thy word,  And ordained man through thy wisdom, that he should have dominion over the creatures which thou hast made,  And order the world according to equity and righteousness, and execute judgment with an upright heart:  Give me wisdom, that sitteth by thy throne; and reject me not from among thy children:  For I thy servant and son of thine handmaid am a feeble person, and of a short time, and too young for the understanding of judgment and laws.  For though a man be never so perfect among the children of men, yet if thy wisdom be not with him, he shall be nothing regarded.  Thou hast chosen me to be a king of thy people, and a judge of thy sons and daughters:  Thou hast commanded me to build a temple upon thy holy mount, and an altar in the city wherein thou dwellest, a resemblance of the holy tabernacle, which thou hast prepared from the beginning.  And wisdom was with thee: which knoweth thy works, and was present when thou madest the world, and knew what was acceptable in thy sight, and right in thy commandments.  O send her out of thy holy heavens, and from the throne of thy glory, that being present she may labour with me, that I may know what is pleasing unto thee.  For she knoweth and understandeth all things, and she shall lead me soberly in my doings, and preserve me in her power.  So shall my works be acceptable, and then shall I judge thy people righteously, and be worthy to sit in my father's seat.  For what man is he that can know the counsel of God? or who can think what the will of the Lord is?  For the thoughts of mortal men are miserable, and our devices are but uncertain.  For the corruptible body presseth down the soul, and the earthy tabernacle weigheth down the mind that museth upon many things.  And hardly do we guess aright at things that are upon earth, and with labour do we find the things that are before us: but the things that are in heaven who hath searched out?  And thy counsel who hath known, except thou give wisdom, and send thy Holy Spirit from above?  For so the ways of them which lived on the earth were reformed, and men were taught the things that are pleasing unto thee, and were saved through wisdom.
 She preserved the first formed father of the world, that was created alone, and brought him out of his fall,  And gave him power to rule all things.  But when the unrighteous went away from her in his anger, he perished also in the fury wherewith he murdered his brother.  For whose cause the earth being drowned with the flood, wisdom again preserved it, and directed the course of the righteous in a piece of wood of small value.  Moreover, the nations in their wicked conspiracy being confounded, she found out the righteous, and preserved him blameless unto God, and kept him strong against his tender compassion toward his son.  When the ungodly perished, she delivered the righteous man, who fled from the fire which fell down upon the five cities.  Of whose wickedness even to this day the waste land that smoketh is a testimony, and plants bearing fruit that never come to ripeness: and a standing pillar of salt is a monument of an unbelieving soul.  For regarding not wisdom, they gat not only this hurt, that they knew not the things which were good; but also left behind them to the world a memorial of their foolishness: so that in the things wherein they offended they could not so much as be hid.  Rut wisdom delivered from pain those that attended upon her.  When the righteous fled from his brother's wrath she guided him in right paths, shewed him the kingdom of God, and gave him knowledge of holy things, made him rich in his travels, and multiplied the fruit of his labours.  In the covetousness of such as oppressed him she stood by him, and made him rich.  She defended him from his enemies, and kept him safe from those that lay in wait, and in a sore conflict she gave him the victory; that he might know that goodness is stronger than all.  When the righteous was sold, she forsook him not, but delivered him from sin: she went down with him into the pit,  And left him not in bonds, till she brought him the sceptre of the kingdom, and power against those that oppressed him: as for them that had accused him, she shewed them to be liars, and gave him perpetual glory.  She delivered the righteous people and blameless seed from the nation that oppressed them.  She entered into the soul of the servant of the Lord, and withstood dreadful kings in wonders and signs;  Rendered to the righteous a reward of their labours, guided them in a marvellous way, and was unto them for a cover by day, and a light of stars in the night season;  Brought them through the Red sea, and led them through much water:  But she drowned their enemies, and cast them up out of the bottom of the deep.  Therefore the righteous spoiled the ungodly, and praised thy holy name, O Lord, and magnified with one accord thine hand, that fought for them.  For wisdom opened the mouth of the dumb, and made the tongues of them that cannot speak eloquent.
 She prospered their works in the hand of the holy prophet.  They went through the wilderness that was not inhabited, and pitched tents in places where there lay no way.  They stood against their enemies, and were avenged of their adversaries.  When they were thirsty, they called upon thee, and water was given them out of the flinty rock, and their thirst was quenched out of the hard stone.  For by what things their enemies were punished, by the same they in their need were benefited.  For instead of a perpetual running river troubled with foul blood,  For a manifest reproof of that commandment, whereby the infants were slain, thou gavest unto them abundance of water by a means which they hoped not for:  Declaring by that thirst then how thou hadst punished their adversaries.  For when they were tried albeit but in mercy chastised, they knew how the ungodly were judged in wrath and tormented, thirsting in another manner than the just.  For these thou didst admonish and try, as a father: but the other, as a severe king, thou didst condemn and punish.  Whether they were absent or present, they were vexed alike.  For a double grief came upon them, and a groaning for the remembrance of things past.  For when they heard by their own punishments the other to be benefited, they had some feeling of the Lord.  For whom they respected with scorn, when he was long before thrown out at the casting forth of the infants, him in the end, when they saw what came to pass, they admired.  But for the foolish devices of their wickedness, wherewith being deceived they worshipped serpents void of reason, and vile beasts, thou didst send a multitude of unreasonable beasts upon them for vengeance;  That they might know, that wherewithal a man sinneth, by the same also shall he be punished.  For thy Almighty hand, that made the world of matter without form, wanted not means to send among them a multitude of bears or fierce lions,  Or unknown wild beasts, full of rage, newly created, breathing out either a fiery vapour, or filthy scents of scattered smoke, or shooting horrible sparkles out of their eyes:  Whereof not only the harm might dispatch them at once, but also the terrible sight utterly destroy them.  Yea, and without these might they have fallen down with one blast, being persecuted of vengeance, and scattered abroad through the breath of thy power: but thou hast ordered all things in measure and number and weight.  For thou canst shew thy great strength at all times when thou wilt; and who may withstand the power of thine arm?  For the whole world before thee is as a little grain of the balance, yea, as a drop of the morning dew that falleth down upon the earth.  But thou hast mercy upon all; for thou canst do all things, and winkest at the sins of men, because they should amend.  For thou lovest all the things that are, and abhorrest nothing which thou hast made: for never wouldest thou have made any thing, if thou hadst hated it.  And how could any thing have endured, if it had not been thy will? or been preserved, if not called by thee?  But thou sparest all: for they are thine, O Lord, thou lover of souls.
 For thine incorruptible Spirit is in all things.  Therefore chastenest thou them by little and little that offend, and warnest them by putting them in remembrance wherein they have offended, that leaving their wickedness they may believe on thee, O Lord.  For it was thy will to destroy by the hands of our fathers both those old inhabitants of thy holy land,  Whom thou hatedst for doing most odious works of witchcrafts, and wicked sacrifices;  And also those merciless murderers of children, and devourers of man's flesh, and the feasts of blood,  With their priests out of the midst of their idolatrous crew, and the parents, that killed with their own hands souls destitute of help:  That the land, which thou esteemedst above all other, might receive a worthy colony of God's children.  Nevertheless even those thou sparedst as men, and didst send wasps, forerunners of thine host, to destroy them by little and little.  Not that thou wast unable to bring the ungodly under the hand of the righteous in battle, or to destroy them at once with cruel beasts, or with one rough word:  But executing thy judgments upon them by little and little, thou gavest them place of repentance, not being ignorant that they were a naughty generation, and that their malice was bred in them, and that their cogitation would never be changed.  For it was a cursed seed from the beginning; neither didst thou for fear of any man give them pardon for those things wherein they sinned.  For who shall say, What hast thou done? or who shall withstand thy judgment? or who shall accuse thee for the nations that perish, whom thou made? or who shall come to stand against thee, to be revenged for the unrighteous men?  For neither is there any God but thou that careth for all, to whom thou mightest shew that thy judgment is not unright.  Neither shall king or tyrant be able to set his face against thee for any whom thou hast punished.  Forsomuch then as thou art righteous thyself, thou orderest all things righteously: thinking it not agreeable with thy power to condemn him that hath not deserved to be punished.  For thy power is the beginning of righteousness, and because thou art the Lord of all, it maketh thee to be gracious unto all.  For when men will not believe that thou art of a full power, thou shewest thy strength, and among them that know it thou makest their boldness manifest.  But thou, mastering thy power, judgest with equity, and orderest us with great favour: for thou mayest use power when thou wilt.  But by such works hast thou taught thy people that the just man should be merciful, and hast made thy children to be of a good hope that thou givest repentance for sins.  For if thou didst punish the enemies of thy children, and the condemned to death, with such deliberation, giving them time and place, whereby they might be delivered from their malice:  With how great circumspection didst thou judge thine own sons, unto whose fathers thou hast sworn, and made covenants of good promises?  Therefore, whereas thou dost chasten us, thou scourgest our enemies a thousand times more, to the intent that, when we judge, we should carefully think of thy goodness, and when we ourselves are judged, we should look for mercy.  Wherefore, whereas men have lived dissolutely and unrighteously, thou hast tormented them with their own abominations.  For they went astray very far in the ways of error, and held them for gods, which even among the beasts of their enemies were despised, being deceived, as children of no understanding.  Therefore unto them, as to children without the use of reason, thou didst send a judgment to mock them.  But they that would not be reformed by that correction, wherein he dallied with them, shall feel a judgment worthy of God.  For, look, for what things they grudged, when they were punished, that is, for them whom they thought to be gods; [now] being punished in them, when they saw it, they acknowledged him to be the true God, whom before they denied to know: and therefore came extreme damnation upon them. - Wisdom of Solomon 6:1-12:27
Though we as humanity think of God, the Holy Spirit, and Christ all in a singular aspect apart from one another. They, together are, the I Am That I Am, the Alpha-Omega, all-encompassing Great Spirit Great Mystery, the Everything in original angelic purity, innocence, and unified oneness. As Trinity They are the energetic origin, source, force, and substance binding creation. Humankind refers to this powerful presence as God, the living self-Existent and Eternal One. When the decision to experience self in all myriad scheme went forth as projection from the Godhead, immediately light as sound, frequency, and vibration in every wavelength, pattern, and form went forth to create the perishable worlds from the imperishable, the visible worlds from the invisible, and the perceptible worlds from the imperceptible. Together the Trinity in holy union, oneness are the primal beneficent originator, the antecedent, progenitor, and provincial benefactor for all creation seen and unseen.
