Faith Comes by Hearing

Second Day Theology is the theology of Second Days or the Second days of each of the fifteen weeks which God, Israel and the adopted have to fulfil. The second day of the Passion Week is the fulfilling of the Second Day Theology, the paradigm second day. The theology of Second Day is the day of the whip. Jesus fashions himself a whip and goes into the temple to chase out the money changers and the peddlers, and throw over their tables. The name of the day is Simeon which means “Hearing or There is Sin.” Simeon is the eldest and second born son of Leah.

The Theology of Second Day is a “theology of the flesh”. God is in the flesh and walking through the Passion Week. God is touched. God whips these men, scatters their coins and doves, and tips over their tables. Jesus is consumed with the zeal of the father, and these hucksters turned a place of prayer into a house of thieves. The temple is a place for God to listen to the hearts of his people and the only sound is the screaming, tables falling, a whip whipping and coins clanging on the floor. There are two weeks that are “Second Day Theology Weeks” which are God and Israel’s second weeks. God’s second week is the Ark of the Covenant Week. Israel’s second week is the Simeon and the Famine Week.

The Ark of the Covenant Week is a revelation week where the revelation is: God is holy. Jesus is the “Speculum, the mirror” for the Ark of the Covenant Week. The Lord’s Speculum is: Jesus is holy. The Father is the worker of the Ark of the Covenant Week. The simplest way to explain the understanding of “holy” is by the connection between the Father and the Son. The Father hears the Son and the Son hears the Father. The Ark of the Covenant could only be approached by the Levites. Jesus and the Father are one and the same. The Son can approach the Father, and Jesus is the Father’s Son.

Simeon and the Famine Week is a curse week. The twelve sons work this week. The curse is: the land dies. Israel is connected to the land where the land is a promise from God. There is a famine throughout all the land. Food was scarce. Jacob and his family move to Egypt when they find out that Joseph is second to Pharaoh. Egypt had plenty. The move was not simple because "Joseph" played the judge by requiring that they bring their youngest brother to him. Simeon had to do time in prison which Simeon might have needed some time to think about what he did with Levi to the men of Shechem for raping Dinah. The incident in Shechem is important to understanding weeks, Jacob's ladder and Jacob's trouble. The names break out the meaning of each week. Jacob's ladder had a problem where Jacob could only get up the ladder, but not enter the kingdom. Jacob's trouble is every week Israel has to fulfill is a curse. The names Simeon, Levi and Benjamin are important to the 2nd, 3rd and 7th weeks. The Simeon Week is a curse because “the land dies”. Jesus is the “Antiphon” to this week. The Lord’s Antiphon is: Jesus is the Righteous and Eternal Judge. This concept of “judge” comes later when Israel has taken the promise land. Before they had a king, Israel had judges who judged the tribes of Israel, fought against enemies of Israel, delivered Israel from their enemies, provided rest and peace to the land. Jesus is the Judge of Judges.

Where the Father listens, the Son speaks. The Son hears the Father; the Father acknowledges. The Son knows the Father and the Father knows the Son. The Son cannot do anything without the Father. The Father is glorified in the Son. Through Jesus, a righteous and eternal Judge, the curse is broken and the land is healed.

The righteous shall live by faith. Faith comes by hearing. Hearing comes from the Word of God. The Word was made flesh. Jesus is the Word.

Know God and be known by Him. Love God and be a Child of God.

Second Day Theology is the theology of faith, prayer and hearing.
