“The fluid, oil, or marrow which flows down the spinal cord, comes from the upper brain, the Creator or Father, the ‘Most High,’ and is known in physiology as ovum, or generative seed that life essence which creates the human form of corruptible flesh. In the Greek, from which the New Testament was translated, this marrow is called Christ, which is the Greek word for oil.
When this oil is refined, transmuted, lifted up, raised, it becomes so highly vitalized that it regenerates the body and ‘overcomes’ the last enemy, death.
How can it be lifted up?
By lifting up the ‘Son of man,’ the seed, the word, the savior. The oil (Christ) in the spinal cord, is the salt which is mentioned in the Bible, and the savior is the seed, or Jesus.
The salt and the savior both come from the same source the same place the Father the upper brain. In the Bible allegory the seed, Jesus, is made to say, ‘Without my Father I can do nothing.’ The material from the Father which forms the seed, has gone through a different process from that which forms the oil. The chemical formula of the oil is J.O.H.N., and Jesus was baptized or anointed of John, not by John, as it is incorrectly quoted. (See article on OIL).
If we lift up or raise the oil in the spinal cord, by the power of the seed, by saving it, it must be a physiological and chemical operation within the body of each of us.
Such is the case.
There is no mystery, no marvel in all the universe that is greater than man himself. ‘Man know thyself’ confronts us, down through the ages, but only a few have paid attention to the voice of the Delphic oracle only a few have looked within.
There is a wonderful ‘Strait and narrow way,’ a real strait, not straight, which extends from the upper brain, the cerebrum, to the end of the spinal cord, otherwise named Jordan, in the Bible. We find that the meaning of this in Hebrew is, descender or ‘River of God.’ The ‘Strait and narrow way is, indeed, the River of God, for it leads to the Father the Most High the upper brain.
As the Jordan empties into the Dead Sea, so the spinal cord terminates in that section of the anatomy, which is designated, in the medical terminolgy as Sodom. Josephus refers to the region as the ‘Lake of Sodom,’ and in other writings we find it referred to as the ‘Sea of Lot,’ and ‘Lake Asphaltus.’”
The just read excerpt came from the book God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 44, which was written by Dr. George Carey.
