Luke 12:32-40 - Becoming spiritually vigilant to prevent the theft of one's soul


Jesus said to his disciples, [32] "Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. [33] Sell your possessions, and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. [34] For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

[35] "Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit; [36] be like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks. [37] Blessed are those slaves whom the master finds alert when he comes; truly I tell you, he will fasten his belt and have them sit down to eat, and he will come and serve them. [38] If he comes during the middle of the night, or near dawn, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves.

[39] "But know this: if the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. [40] You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour."


--------------------


In verse thirty-two, Luke begins by writing a capitalized “,” which is a divinely elevated statement of “Not.” When this negative word is read on a Yahweh level of meaning, the word “Not” is a double-edged statement, relative to that stated next, which is “you fear.” These two words are separated from the rest of the verse, by Luke’s use of a comma mark; so, the “Not” is relative to that stated before, which is relative to the disciples “seeking the kingdom of him” – God. Thus, “Not” says if one has “Not” become a soul married to Yahweh, then “you fear.” Conversely, if one’s soul has become married to Yahweh, then “you fear Not,” because Yahweh protects your soul. This becomes a profound statement and not some suggestion that the disciples stop worrying about what will happen to their souls after death.


Missing in the translation, relative to the second segment of words, is the article “to,” which identifies “this little flock,” as opposed to any other “small” gathering of lost sheep. Following Jesus stating the lack of “fear” that will prevail in saved souls, “this small flock” of disciples is now being pointed out. Then Jesus said, “because he is well pleased this Father of your souls to place to your souls this kingdom.” There, the capitalized “Father” is a statement of relationship, which says not only have the souls of the disciples married Yahweh (engaged to be), they have been given Jesus as their brother soul, so all can identify Yahweh as “Father.” Those “Not” of His other “small flocks” cannot make such an identification. In the uses of “hymōn” and “hymin,” these pronouns that translate as “you” or yourselves” (in the plural) has to be seen as reference to “souls,” as a “self” is a “soul.” Yahweh, as the supreme deity of all is spiritual, not physical; so, he has no children in the flesh to call Him “Father.” The relationship is a soul to Yahweh’s Spirit.


In verse thirty-three, Luke began with the capitalized Greek word “Pōlēsate,” which is the second-person plural Aorist Imperative that has been translated by the NRSV as “Sell.” As a divinely elevated word that has to be read on the level of Yahweh’s spirituality, the true translation of this word must be read as “you Exchange,” because the lower-case definition of the infinitive root “póleó” is “to exchange or barter, to sell.” This one word is then Yahweh speaking through the Son, saying “all of you Exchange these possessions of your souls,” where this states the ownership of the body of flesh by its host soul has been “Exchanged” through divine marriage with Yahweh, so Yahweh is now the one in “possession” of “your souls.”


When that is understood, Luke then wrote the word “kai,” which is a marker word that denotes importance to follow. After having “Exchanged one’s soul for a divine possessor,” it is then important to “give” or “set in place” “charity,” in return for one’s soul having been “pitied” and shown “mercy.” This states an “Exchange” for past sins, leading one to “give charitably” as Yahweh deems necessary.


Following a semi-colon mark, which begins a new statement relative to this spiritual “Exchange,” Luke then wrote of Jesus saying to “make to your souls purses not growing old”. This has absolutely nothing to do with sewing together pieces of leather, to create a bag in which gold and silver coins can be held. It says Yahweh will “make to your souls,” as part of this divine “Exchange,” “purses,” where spiritual value will be held safely within one’s soul-body. One becomes a “purse” of truth, which does “not” ever become “old” news. The truth is always fresh and never worthless. The truth does not grow or decrease in value, based on a commodities market. The truth is always valuable and what lost souls are always seeking to find. This is then explained by Luke in the next segment, which says, “a storehouse of precious (truths) unfailing within to these to souls”.


Jesus was then recorded to add, about these valuable held within those souls that have “Exchanged” their own souls for the soul of Jesus to lead them with the light of truth, “where thief not does he come near.” This says a truth exposed cannot be stolen by a “thief,” as a truth coming out of the mouth of a liar and cheat will sound good at first, but upon questioning the “thief” will be incapable of following a truth with more truth. The “thieves” are then those false leaders that twisted the words of Scripture to suit their personal needs for profits, at the expense of the lost sheep (“small flocks”). Thus, a “thief” is compared to a “moth,” which is an insect that feeds off physical fabrics. The physical fabric of Yahweh is Scripture; so, the false shepherds are like those who feed off dead matter, not the living truth. They cannot “destroy” living souls that have been “Exchanged” with Yahweh, so the truth will have set them free from destruction by those who would steal from them.


In verse thirty-four, Jesus addressed “where indeed it exists this treasure (or storehouse for precious truths) of your souls”. This says the Spirit of Yahweh “exists” in possession “of your souls,” so this divine presence is “this treasure” held within the “purse” of oneself. This “treasure” is not only the truth of Scripture, it is the promise of eternal life beyond the death of the flesh. Thus, the “where” is “there,” where this presence “exists of your souls.” Jesus then identified “there” as importantly (use of “kai”) this heart of your souls will exist.” The Greek word “kardia” says “heart,” but also implies “mind, character, inner self, will, intention, center.” Therefore, “there” is a joint soul within one’s soul; so, the “treasure” is the soul of Jesus resurrected within one’s soul.


Luke then capitalized the first word of verse thirty-five, writing “Estōsan,” the third-person plural Active Imperative form of “eimi,” meaning “they Exist.” This is a divinely elevated word that makes a statement about those souls who have married Yahweh and now “Exist” as an extension of “I Am” – YHWH. Luke then followed that with the Genitive case (the possessive “of”) “hymōn,” which is a statement that says “they Exist of your souls,” making the divine elevation be of the spiritual, not the physical or material. This “Existence” then possesses those souls. Luke then added Jesus saying, “the loins girding,” where “loins” must be read as metaphor for the urges of the flesh, many of which are pleasure seeking and sexual immoralities. This presence that “Exists of your souls” is then “girding” or controlling one’s influences of the flesh.


Following a comma mark of separation, Luke wrote the word “kai,” denoting an emphasis of importance next placed that says, “these lamps burning”. Here, the “girding of the loins” takes away the underlying drive to satisfy the urges and desires of the flesh, importantly transforming those bodies of flesh into “lamps burning.” As a “lamp,” one must understand that the purpose of a “lamp” is to shine light into the darkness, so the light of truth will be shone brightly. When “these lamps” are understood to be those held by the bridesmaids of Yahweh, the word stating “burning” must be read as a “consumption by fire,” where the metaphor is a transformation form the yearnings of the flesh to a “burning” desire to please Yahweh and shine His light of truth. This “burning” is then the motivation for ministry in the name of His Son, Jesus.


Following a semi-colon mark at the end of verse thirty-five, Luke began verse thirty-six with the word “kai,” indicating it is important to see this separate but relative view that states one word: “your souls” (from “hymeis”). This says the inner “burning” to be “lamp” of Yahweh AND the urges of the flesh that must be controlled are all relative to the host soul. Without divine marriage to Yahweh, no soul is capable of maintaining a “burning” desire to sacrifice self and totally serve Yahweh.


This important aspect of “your souls” is then compared to a servant and his or her master. This simile is then stated as: “to men to expectations this master of their souls , when he shall unloose from out of of those of weddings , in order that having come kai of having gained admittance , at once they should have opened to his soul .” Here, the translation of “anthrōpois” should be read as “mankind” or “humanity,” so this includes all genders of man. All “humanity” needs to be seen as a bridesmaid, which is the femininity of a soul trapped in human flesh. As such, the ”expectations” for “this” marriage of souls to Yahweh is the surrender of their self-ego and self-will, willingly and lovingly seeking Yahweh to become the “master,” as their soul’s Husband. This is the “unloosing” of one’s self-will “from out of” control over one’s flesh. The element of “weddings” is the wife surrenders her family name, taking on the name of her husband. The same “expectations” are present in a divine union of soul and Spirit. This must be the case, “in order that” – the divine presence that is “burning” within – comes.


At that point, Luke inserted the word “kai,” showing the importance of that “having come” means the possession of one’s soul by Yahweh. The door being knocked on will have the door opened, but if one has not put on the clothes of “wedding,” as a sign of one’s sacrifice of self-ego, one will not be allowed entrance. Thus, “of having gained admittance” says a soul has prepared accordingly to become the bride of Yahweh and is allowed to receive Yahweh’s Spirit within one’s soul. When Luke then had Jesus say, “immediately they should have opened to his soul,” which is the resurrection of the Son of Yahweh’s soul (Adam-Jesus) within the soul of a wife to Yahweh. The “at once” says there is no time wasted celebrating the divine marriage, such that a “wedding” night would be when a husband would plant his seed, waiting to see if that seed took hold. The resurrection of Jesus comes “immediately” after the “wedding” vows – the Covenant – have been written on the walls of a soul.


In verse thirty-seven, Luke had Jesus saying, “those blessed these servants the ones there , who having come , this master he will find waking . truly I speak to your souls because he will gird kai he will lay down their souls , kai having passed by , he will serve their souls .” The word translating as “blessed” can also mean “to be envied” and “happy.” It should not be read as if “blessed” is some state of favor that makes a soul in the flesh better than any other human being on earth. It is a statement of personal value felt, which does not project outward upon anyone else. A “blessed” soul does not greet a lost soul by saying, “Hello. I am blessed by God.” This is because “those blessed” are the “servants” or “slaves” to Yahweh, going out to others as their “slaves,” attempting to lead them to salvation.


To further explain this “blessed” state of being, Jesus then said it is only because of Yahweh’s Spirit and the soul of His Son “having come.” The “happiness” is from becoming a willing servant to Yahweh and a personal Lord within. The Lord within (Jesus) will become the “master” of the “slave,” who will find a state of “awakening,” versus a state of sleep. An “awake” state means rising to the light of truth and being vigilant at all times.


Following a period mark, Jesus then began a new statement that spoke the truth, saying, “I speak to your souls because he will gird”. This refers to Yahweh “girding the loins” of physical desire to sin. Once that external influence is removed, then Jesus’ soul can “speak” the truth to “your souls.” With desires “girded,” it is important to realize that one’s soul has been “laid down” or “reclined,” which is the opposite of “awakening.” To “lay down souls,” a soul has to submit fully to Yahweh and do His bidding, as a wife submits to her Husband. This is the meaning of “dying” of self, which has to be the first step towards eternal salvation.


Following a comma mark of separation and Luke writing the word “kai,” we find Jesus saying “parelthōn,” which is a form of the verb meaning “to pass by,” implying in usage “to render void, become vain, neglect, and disregard.” Here, again, Jesus is clarifying the “souls to be laid down” by saying this is akin to the Passover, where the blood of the lamb (the soul of Jesus upon one’s doorframe – a host soul and its body) will spare a soul, which has “become vain” to attempt to regain self-control. Once Yahweh has seen this self-sacrifice and a soul becoming His servant, following the guidance of His Son’s soul, then Yahweh will become the servant “of their souls.”


In verse thirty-eight, Luke began with the word “kai,” denoting importance must be found in this verse. That importance is found in Jesus saying, “within to this to second”. This must be equated to the meaning of the name Ephraim, which means “Doubly Fruitful.” The term “second” has been assumed by the NRSV translators to mean the “second time” of night, which is midnight. This has nothing to do with a translation that sees the Greek word “en” and meaning “within,” where the proper intent of this word states “the condition (state) in which something operates from the inside (within).” (HELPS Word-studies) The meaning “within” is then reference to the soul, so “to this” is moved from one soul ruling a body of flesh “to a second,” which is the soul of Jesus resurrected. This is important to grasp.


Following this statement about “a second,” Luke wrote the contracted word “kan,” which combines the word “kai” with the word “ean,” stating “and if.” When the presence of “kai” is seen as a marker of importance, then this becomes an important state of the conditional, where Jesus said, “if within to this to third to guard he should come”. When the Greek word for “guard” (“phylakē”) is read as “watch,” one can mistake the need for a “watch” to be to “guard” the sleeping citizens of a city or walled town. When “third” is realized to be the Trinity stated ordinally, “the third” is the Spirit” of Yahweh, with Jesus and a host soul being the other two spirits combined as one. This is conditional, as not all souls are so divinely possessed by Yahweh’s Spirit and the soul of His Son, where “he comes” to protect one’s soul.


Luke then added another “kai” which adds importance to “him coming,” with Jesus saying, “he finds”. This becomes importance relative to a seeker soul, which submits fully to Yahweh, continuously contacting Him in prayer. A seeker soul knows his or her own guilt and the necessity to seriously petition Yahweh for help. When one sends out these signals, Yahweh will “find them,” as He will be keeping “watch” over all souls. Yahweh will hear those prayers, know the commitment offered and “find” those in need of help to rescue.


Jesus then ended this verse by saying, “blessed are these!” Here, again, is the word “makarioi,” meaning “blessed, happy, to be envied.” It was last written to begin verse thirty-seven; and, it does not mean a saved soul is special. It is expected that a soul seek Yahweh and return to His fold. In return, Yahweh seeks those lost souls that call out to him, as lost sheep would to their shepherd. Thus, it is the personal “happiness” that defines this state that is “blessed.” It means a lost soul has indeed been found.


In verse thirty-nine, Luke began with a capitalized “Touto,” which is a divinely elevated “This.” As such, Jesus was referring to that previously stated about being “blessed,” because Yahweh has married one’s soul and the soul of His Son has been resurrected within one’s soul. Jesus then added to “This,” “now you souls know”, which is a statement that one has gone beyond belief and thinking what is necessary for a soul’s salvation, to a state of clear “knowing” from faith.


Jesus then added after Luke placed a comma mark of separation, “because if he had perceived this master of a house to what hour this thief he is to come , ( he had been vigilant ) not it , ( kai ) he had allowed having broken through this dwelling of his soul .” You will note how two words are placed within parentheses, which means those words are spiritually read, as silent indications of intent. This states the conditional of “if,” where the opposite condition would be the ”guard” and “watch” of the Trinity – a “second” and a “third” along with the soul in its flesh. To use the excuse that one can ‘play with fire’ and not commit to marriage to Yahweh and being led away from sin to a life of righteous ministry, is to meet the condition of thinking one can predict the future, knowing when death will come and a soul will be judged by Yahweh. The scenario asks, “If you know when a thief will come to steal your soul [Satan], then one would “not” have left his ”dwelling” unguarded, while one slept in sin. That “not” means the soul will be stolen, because evil ways have long before “broken into one’s dwelling” (one’s soul and flesh), stealing “his soul.”


In the final verse of this reading selection, Luke began verse forty with another use of “kai,” denoting that following is important to grasp. There, Jesus said, “your souls you are born prepared ; because to this to hour not you have an opinion , this Son of this of mankind he comes .” Here, the analogy of one’s soul “dwelling” in its body of flesh cannot possibly stay “vigilant” and “watch” over his or her own safety twenty-four hours of every day. Sleep is a natural limitation on a body of flesh; so, it cannot stay awake forever. The soul can; but when the soul is alone to follow the lead of its flesh, it dies figuratively when the body sleeps, incapable of guarding itself from demonic theft. Thus, the important element to know, towards salvation of the soul, is “your souls are born prepared.” That means a soul is eternal, as from the spiritual realm of Yahweh, where all is representative of the light of day and being watchful. When a soul is placed in a body of flesh at birth, it comes from a vigilant state into a limited state that cannot “guard” the soul from thieves. Thus, a soul knows from birth the need to seek Yahweh’s help in this regard of the limitations of the flesh.


Following a semi-colon, Luke had Jesus begin a separate statement that is relative to the importance of knowing a “soul is born prepared” to receive Yahweh’s Spirit and His Son’s soul. This is then explained to be “because to this” limitation of the flesh, which could die or could begin to send urges to sin to the soul, attracting demon spirits to marry the soul, the brain (the source of all “opinion”) does “not know” the difference between right and wrong. It only knows self-satisfaction. Thereby, when death does come, the brain will never have figured out when there was a dire need to change and become vigilant through self-sacrifice to Yahweh.


Jesus then said “this,” which is a soul in its flesh inabilities to gain salvation naturally, without divine union, calls for the soul’s need to be reborn as the “Son” of Yahweh. This spiritual presence within one’s soul will then be the possession by Yahweh “of this of mankind.” When a soul has made the sacrifices that offer his or her soul to Yahweh fully and unconditionally, the “he comes.” This means Yahweh’s Spirit cleanses a soul of all past sins and then immediately is where the soul of Jesus is resurrected, becoming the Lord over one’s flesh. This allows the soul to “come” back to Yahweh’s holy realm after death, as Jesus will lead them in ministry the rest of their natural lives.


It is important to give Yahweh the credit for being the Creator of all lesser gods-spirits-souls-and angels. Yahweh created His Son Adam in the divine place named Eden (along with his wife we like to call Eve), for the express purpose to save every soul released by Yahweh, at physical birth into a body of flesh, because those souls have been prepared to return to His realm. Because there are countless soul released by Yahweh – including the soul of physical Jesus – ALL OF THEM can potentially become married to Yahweh and receive the soul of his Son Adam-Jesus. Jesus was born with this perfect soul merged with his human soul; and, Yahweh has the power and ability to fill many souls with the soul of Jesus, whether Jesus was living in the flesh or not. Jesus did not have to die for his disciples to have received the soul of Jesus to guide them (temporarily). This power of Yahweh must be understood.
