you have to come to the END of yourself, your carnal mind
and then you will be made NEW, a New Man and a NEW creation:
the old one can't hold that LIGHT that is CHRIST....
as a matter of fact when the CHRIST IS GIVEN or rather received within
the LIGHT SHATTERS the carnal mind like a potter shatters the earthen vessel
this is why God doesn't allow one to receive it till it reaches a certain level that can HOLD that light:
the person has to REACH THEIR SOUL (root level of existence) where the SHIFT of minds can be MADE (great earthquake within)
the LIGHT goes out of the carnal mind (your sensual experience of life)
and ENTERS WITHIN THE SOUL (that part that is held exile within the carnal mind but becomes BIG enough to OVERCOME the first level of life experience
this SWITCH is what the Bible is all about and tries to explain and why it is so terrible to experience
the LIGHT goes completely OUT before it is relit in another place within you
now the light is able to DEVELOP this NEW LEVEL of being called "MAN"
before our vessel (mind) was only big enough to hold enough light that is a little more than an animal with a higher intelligence
but not big enough to HOLD THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD
Jews say the SOUL is 600 times bigger than the carnal mind, hence the 613 laws in Judaism....to increase the comprehension or RECEPTIVITY of the carnal mind to a more intricate intelligence called the NESHAMA or Jewish soul:
