Intuitive Knowledge in the Age of Reason
Written by Pastor Marcos Marrero
Published on 3/6/22
Ecclesiastes 12:11 “The words of the wise are like goads, and the words of scholars are like well-driven nails, given by one Shepherd.”
The wisdom of Learned Knowledge which is what our present day understanding of the universe is based on, has been declared foolishness by God Himself.
1 Corinthians 1:20 “Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God MADE FOOLISH the wisdom of this world?”
The fundamental flaw of Learned Knowledge is that it is based on the things that are visible, which always leads to a scientific dead end when trying to piece together the origin and purpose for the creation of our universe, by basing it on the things which are seen.
Proverbs 16:25 “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.”
Now the Word of God teaches us the proper way of how to understand the why and when of the creation itself, if we just follow the basic foundational principles upon which God created everything that He made; and for that we need to look in the right place: the Word of God.
2 Corinthians 4:18 “While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are TEMPORARY (changing, passing away), but the things which are not seen are ETERNAL (complete).”
The creation itself reflects the nature of the Creator, in order to understand the unseen parts of the creation we need to obtain the ability to decipher the spiritual language of the Creator.
Psalm 19:1-3 “The heavens DECLARE the glory of God; and the firmament SHOWS His handiwork. Day unto day UTTERS speech, and night unto night REVEALS knowledge. THERE IS NO SPEECH NOR LANGUAGE WHERE THEIR VOICE IS NOT HEARD.” The capitals in all the verses quoted added by me for emphasis.
Day and night God continuously declares and shows us His glory as He utters and reveals knowledge through the creation itself. And all this vital information is made available to all who seek it, and it does not matter what our learned language is. So, what is this mysterious language that God speaks and that we can all learn from? I call it Intuitive Knowledge!
1 Thessalonians 5:23 “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you COMPLETELY; and may your whole SPIRIT, SOUL, and BODY be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Not everyone may know this, but we all speak three different languages. Our bodies speak the language of signs, mannerisms and gestures: known as Body Language. Today we have Body Language in which experts appear on TV shows tell us what others are saying by their expressions.
Our soul is the seat of our mind and understanding, and expresses itself through what I refer to earlier as Learned Knowledge, which is the language or languages that we learned to speak as we were growing up during our life time.
I believe that the language that our spirits speak is what I call Intuitive Knowledge. Intuition is very hard to comprehend with our natural or soul way of thinking. I used to think of it as hints or hunches that came to us by way of chance. But now I am totally convinced that Intuitive Knowledge is the language that the spirit-man was created to speak and understand. It is a language that has an alphabet and the means to conjugate and express—that is to Declare, Show, Utter and Reveal knowledge and understanding at a level we could never dream of. This is what I am going to try and teach in the next few pages, the language that our spirit-man craves for.
Why should a Christian endeavor to learn the spiritual language of Intuitive Knowledge?
James 1:5-8 “If any of you lacks WISDOM, let him ask of God, who GIVES TO ALL liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in FAITH, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a DOUBLE-MINDED MAN, unstable in all his ways.”
Wisdom and faith are both spiritual and we have to be single minded in order to get them. To be double-minded (two souls) means that the spirit and the soul are not on the same page. So faith comes by hearing the Word of God that comes through the spirit-man and convinces the soul.
Psalm 19:7 “The law of the Lord is perfect, CONVERTING the soul; the testimony of the Lord is SURE (trustworthy), making wise the SIMPLE (humble).”
The soul-man looks at the structure—the creation—from the outside, while the spirit-man looks at the infrastructure—or the inner workings of the creation—from the inside. The soul-man learns through words and the spirit-man understands through numbers. And when they come together as one, we receive revelation directly from our Redeemer, as given by One Shepherd.
Psalm 19:14 “Let the WORDS (Learned Knowledge) of my mouth and MEDITATION (Intuition) of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.”
I believe that the Intuitive Knowledge language of the spirit-man is a mathematical language and that it has a numerical alphabet if you will. What makes this mathematical language superior to the Learned Knowledge language of the soul-man is that numbers never lose anything in the translation. It does not matter our language or traditions or customs, mathematical principles never change. God created us to communicate with Him in all three levels: spirit, soul and body.
Because of the rebellion at the tower of Babel, God confused the one language that they all spoke and therefore they were divided and scattered around the post diluvium world.
However, on the Day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit fell on one hundred and twenty souls and their spiritual language was restored, but their ability to understand it naturally was restricted.
1 Corinthians 2:14 “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are SPIRITUALLY discerned.”
Without the Spirit of God we cannot be partakers of the gift of Intuitive Knowledge, but for those of us who have been born of the Spirit of God, we have received and are qualified to learn from this great blessing of having the spiritual discernment provided by Intuitive Knowledge.
1 Corinthians 2:6-7 “However, we speak WISDOM among those who are MATURE, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to NOTHING (temporary and are passing). But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the HIDDEN (intuitive) WISDOM WHICH GOD ORDAINED before the ages for our GLORY (understanding).”
With all these Scriptures in mind and with the Holy Spirit’s help let us see if we can find some of the hidden wisdom which God ordained for our times. If numbers are a language—a means of communication—then they have to have a structure or a numerical alphabet of some sort.
I propose that the ten digits in our hands comprise the entirety of this numerical alphabet. Written in our bodies so that we never forget them, for we have been created with ten fingers.
The numbers one through nine all represent the revelation of God’s creation; for they all have value within themselves. Therefore God uses Psalm 19 or one through nine as the place for this revelation; also in Psalm 119 He shows us the perfection of the Hebrew alphabet, and in Psalm 139 about His perfect foreknowledge of everything that He created through the numbers 1-9.
A Zero has no value by itself, so it represents everything that God created including man. If you place a Zero on the right side of any of the digits that have value, that number is magnified. If you take the number One and add a Zero to its right side it combines to make the number Ten.
There are four perfect numbers that theologians have found: The number Three is defined as Divine Perfection, the number Seven as Spiritual Perfection, the number Ten as Ordinal Perfection and the number Twelve is assigned the title of Governmental Perfection.
In the number Ten, the One and the Zero, we learn the law of divine order. Following mathematical principles if you put the Zero after the One you have the number Ten, which indicates increase in value. If you put the Zero in front of the One indicates a decrease in value. The first of the Ten Commandments teaches us not to put anything before the One God.
As the Creator God must always be first, in order for the creatures that He created to increase. When Lucifer said that he would be like God, as in no need of God; instantly he was demoted and became the devil, which means supreme spirit of evil, and Satan, which means adversary; he became the embodiment of everything that God is not. We were created by God and for God, but we have a choice, not choosing to put God first ROBS us of our potential for His divine favor.
John 10:10 “The thief does not come except to STEAL (robs us), and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may HAVE (God adds) life, and that they may have it more ABUNDANTLY (He not only adds life but He also multiplies it as well).”
The Lord puts this verse and chapter in the number Ten for a double emphasis. Satan is a predator; the law of predatory behavior Divides and Takes away. God on the other hand, as Creator has the power to Add and to Multiply. To those who put God first in their lives God adds and multiplies life and life in abundance. The devil comes as a thief; he divides and takes way. So Ordinal Perfection teaches that to be blessed we have to put God first in all areas of our lives.
Romans 10:9-10 “9) That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10) For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
The number Nine (verse nine) represents God’s completed work of redemption; that of Jesus dying on the cross and Him rising from the dead, the number Ten (verse ten) represents those who by confession of faith place themselves in the proper Ordinal Perfection that God created.
So that to divide and to take away and addition and multiplication are a form of a numerical conjugation system that denotes the separation between one and the other. In some cases between good and evil, right and wrong, love and hate, blessings and curses. In other cases adding and or multiplying to express the hidden or spiritual meaning of the verses confirmed by the numerical values assigned to them as we have seen in some of the verses already.
Now let us look at the numbers One through Nine.
Deuteronomy 6:4-5 “4) Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is ONE! 5) You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.”
In verse five we are commanded to love God—that is, put the number One first—spirit, soul and body. All of us humans were created in God’s image. In verse four our God is One God and three persons marking the meaning of the number Three as Divine Perfection. The Four and the Five add to Nine which speaks of God’s completeness and fullness which are represented by the value in the numbers in this numerical alphabet of One through Nine. Six is the number for man.
1 John 5:7 “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and THESE THREE ARE ONE.” NKJV
Let us deal with the number One first: If God was one God and one person only there would be no creation, there would not even be the necessity for a language, for there would be no one else for God to speak with. If God was one God and two persons, He would be able to talk to Himself for the second person would be the Word, but there would still be no creation. It is only when we count the Third Person of the trinity, the Holy Spirit—that we see the Divine Perfection at work with their ability to have a relationship within themselves and with their own created creatures.
We see in the creation narrative that God spoke and energy—the Word of God is energy—came out of His mouth and the Holy Spirit gave shape to that which God spoke into existence.
In the numeric’s of Psalm 19 verses 1, 2 and 3, where God reveals the hidden and visible things of the creation, we see that the number One plus Two more verses = Three verses in total: to signal that, Divine Perfection is behind the Ones who created our universe and are revealing all the LAWS THAT GOVERN it, therefore the number Twelve—one and two in that order—which is the number of Governmental Perfection is putting its stamp on it as well.
Psalm 19:1, 4 “1) The HEAVENS declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. 4) Their LINE (sound) has gone out through all the EARTH, and their words to the end of the WORLD...”
Now, the number Four represents the physical creation and intertwines with the first perfect number, the number Three—Divine Perfection—and together Three and Four they form the metaphysical in the number Seven—Spiritual Perfection: Heaven and earth together.
As God’s judgment upon the earth begins in the final days, we see this interaction between the numbers Three and the number Four.
Revelation 7:1 “After these things I saw FOUR angels standing at the FOUR corners of the earth, holding the FOUR winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree.”
The number Four appearing Three times in the first verse of chapter Seven: Four plus Three = Seven—Spiritual Perfection ready to be poured out upon a rebellious physical world.
Psalm 19:7 “The law of the Lord is (physically and spiritually) PERFECT…”
Open your hand without the thumb and hold your four fingers up and you will see three empty spaces between them. The human soul sees the four fingers for they are physically visible. But our spirit-man sees perfection in the Three spaces between them, for there are Three that testify in heaven—the spiritual realm—and they are the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit.
So that if we follow the instructions of Ordinal Perfection properly we see that everything is interconnected to the Word of God and to the inner workings of the creation itself.
In the Hebrew alphabet the tenth Hebrew letter is the Yod and it represents a single hand with a value of ten. So that this letter Yod = Hand can also represent the double witness of the two hands together having ten fingers. This is very important because the hand represented by the Yod in the Hebrew alphabet is neither open nor close. What happens if you open your hand and include the thumb? We see five fingers. The number five represents the breath of God which can be equated with the blessings and favor of God.
Following the same principle that we applied to the Four and Three, let us look into the inner workings of the numbers Five and Four. If we open up our hands with our thumbs included our spirit-man will immediately equate the five fingers with the blessings of God. The redeemed soul will see the creation—Four—overwhelmed by the mercies of a Mighty and Loving God—Five.
Ephesians 4:11 “And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers.”
God’s five-fold ministry is represented by an opened hand; the open hand also represents Jesus’ heart toward the human race; Jesus tells the Laodicea church that He is knocking at the door of their hearts, as if it were hand to hand or heart to heart, wanting to come in and to have fellowship with them. An open hand represents a heart that it’s open to receive God’s spiritual blessings, while a close hand represents an unwilling heart. Even today we know that a raised closed hand or fist is symbolic of rebellion.
Because of past failures Moses was refusing to go and deliver the Israelites from Egyptian captivity, then God asked Moses “What is that in your hand?” God had destined Moses to be a Deliverer before Moses was born, it was written in his heart. Once Moses let go of the rod that represented the failures of his past, he was released and allowed to put the past behind him, and fulfill his destiny which involved the number Ten, as in the Ten Commandments written by God Himself on stoned tablets that Moses was to deliver to Israel.
Moses was also called to consecrate the priesthood as recipients of the sacrifices that Israel was required to offer. The word consecration is a two part word: the second part of the word is Mah-leh = SECRATE. In the original Hebrew first appears in Genesis 1:22 and is translated “Fill up complete” God places two Hebrew letters in front of Mah-leh: first the Yod and second Dalet: Yod means hand and Dalet means open door. Put it all together and to consecrate means to open up your hand which represents our hearts and God will fill it to overflow with mercy and grace. Christianity’s foundation are Justification, sanctification, glorification and consecration.
The Five-fold ministry proclaiming the Four basic tenants of the Christian faith completes the number Nine: Justification by faith in the blood of Jesus, Sanctification by the Word of God, Glorification by the renewing work of the Holy Spirit in us and the Consecration of an open heart to God’s individual destiny for each of us.
Psalm 19:9-10 “The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.”
Verse Nine represents God’s completed work that will endure forever, and the number Ten represents that it was all accomplished through the gifts or blessings that flow out of Ordinal Perfection: Honey is ingested into the inward man and gold is for our outward adornment.
Six is the number of man; Adam was created on the sixth day. Adam was created in the image of God who is Three Persons so we see that Three plus Three equals Six.
Psalm 8:4-6 “What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that you visit him? For you have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put ALL THINGS under his feet.”
Man is the crowning achievement of God’s creation! Meaning that man is the reason that God created our universe and the purpose for its continued existence. Although the first man, Adam failed to measure up to God’s destiny, the last Adam, Jesus did not let us down.
We added three plus three to see man’s destiny in verse SIX: How God put all things under man’s feet. Following God’s flow of add and multiply let us now multiply Three times Three which equals Nine the number of completeness and the finality that takes place before we enter into the infinite realm in which God dwells, with a new heaven and the new earth added.
Psalm 8:3, 9 “When I consider Your HEAVENS (our present universe), the WORK of Your FINGERS (Ordinal Perfection), the moon and the stars that You have ORDAINED…9) O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth!”
Psalm113:4-6 “The Lord is high above all nations, His glory above the HEAVENS (our present universe), who is like the Lord our God, who dwells on HIGH (infinity), who humbles Himself to behold the things that are in the HEAVENS and in the EARTH? (our present universe)”
God dwells in Infinity Time. God created our universe and put a limit for its duration for a very specific reason; and man is the tool that God personally fashioned to bring about the purpose for the creation of the heavens and the earth.
1 John 3:8 “He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. FOR THIS PURPOSE THE SON OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED, that He might DESTROY THE WORKS of the devil.”
I believe that the cause or reason why God created our temporary universe was that He had to deal with the nature of evil. God is GOOD and the essence of Goodness Himself: Since only God is Good and He does not change; evil then—the antonym for good—could be portrayed as a shadow that follows God’s goodness.
Before the creation of our universe evil existed only in a vacuum if you will. The only way for God to get rid of evil would be for Him to stop being good; thank God for the impossibility of God ever ceasing to be good. If one cannot get rid of evil then how does God neutralize it? By exposing evil for what it is: EXCEEDINGLY SINFUL in a contained area where God can keep evil from ever contaminating the Infinite Time in which He dwells.
Romans 7:13 “Has then what is GOOD become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might APPEAR (be exposed as) SIN, was producing death in me through what is GOOD (God’s law), so that sin through the commandment might become EXCEEDINGLY SINFUL.”
Notice the verse and chapter numbers: Seven is the completion of something that is temporary, and Thirteen denotes sin, death and evil. I believe that our universe was created for the express purpose of exposing evil for what it is, the exact opposite of God’s goodness.
Evil without essence was like a mine hidden on a field waiting to be tripped. God created a secure place—our universe—and then created the angels first, knowing that eventually one or some of His creatures would decide that they could be good without God, not knowing that evil was the opposite of all that is good, and once a sovereign creature created in the image of God put himself before God that creature would become the embodiment of evil itself. Lucifer the creature that tripped that hidden mine became the embodiment of all that is evil: Devil means supreme spirit of evil and Satan means adversary, everything that God is not.
For more details on this subject read my book: The Shadow of Evil by Marcos Marrero in the books section of the houseoffaithministries.org web-page.
Revelation 19:20 “The the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. THESE TWO WERE CAST ALIVE into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.”
At the end of our first six thousand years of human history and before we enter into God’s millennial rest, the embodiment of evil in HUMAN FORM—the Antichrist and the False Prophet—are taken alive into the lake of fire, which is the infinite destiny of evil itself. A thousand years later the spiritual embodiment of evil itself—the Devil and Satan—will join them, to be displayed for time immemorial, as the smoke of their torment rises to warn all future and newly created beings of the consequences of their choosing—whether to be with God or not—and of the great difference between good and evil.
I used to think that Eve was the victim when the serpent lured her into partaking of the forbidden fruit. For we know that Adam was not deceived, Adam loved his bride and did not want to lose her, so he chose her fate and partook with her knowingly. But when God judged the serpent God’s pronouncement was: He, the Seed of the woman, shall bruise the serpents head. The woman was not the victim, SHE WAS THE MEANS!
It is true that the serpent poisoned human DNA with evil and death. But Jesus, the Seed of the woman, through His virgin birth infused eternal life into all humanity with His purifying blood, thereby exposing evil for what it truly is and eventually locking evil up for all infinity in the Lake of Fire for all to see, neutralized of its power to deceive and to never cause harm again.
Also, in great amazement, we will see in the new heavens and in the new earth, prominently displayed will be the holy city, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. She will bear witness for time immemorial of the fact that God and only God is Good, and that His mercies endure forever. And that His promises are Yes and Amen!
Revelation 21:1-3 “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, THE TABERNACLE OF GOD IS WITH MEN, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.’”
In verses One through Three we see the completion of the purpose for which God created our universe, the present heaven and earth.
Revelation 21:4 “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, FOR THE FORMER THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY.”
And in verse Four the creation represented by the number Four is introduced to a new reality: Four plus Four = Eight the number of new beginnings that follows after the completion of the number Seven, at the end of the thousand years reign of Christ. All this is taking place in Revelation chapter twenty-one: Seven times Three.
Daniel 6:27 “He DELIVERS and RESCUES, and He works SIGNS and WONDERS in heaven and on earth, who has delivered DANIEL (the wise) from the power of the lions.”
He delivers and rescues number Six the wise man, through signs and wonders. Two plus Seven equals Nine for Completion, and the Three numbers is for Divine Perfection which ADDS to the number Twelve for Governmental Perfection. Nine MULTIPLIED by the number Three equals Twenty-seven, the number of the chapter, and the number of books in the New Testament.
Intuitive knowledge is infinite, it is so vast and so deep that is able to provide us from within—in the spirit-man—with the assurances that a life-time in the natural could never match in experience or scope. To know that we know with unrivaled certainty! Even though we may not understand it all in the natural, is not that what faith is?
All the numbers referenced in the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, speak volumes of how God puts it all together in the final tally. But for now I want to encourage those of you who are seeking Intuitive Knowledge, that is not about the numbers per say, as much as it is acknowledging the spirit-man within us by always looking at the numerical context.
Proverbs 20:27 “The spirit of a man IS THE LAMP OF THE LORD, searching ALL the INNER DEPTHS of his heart.”
