← Vorige   Volgende →

737. 'Noah was a son of six hundred years' means his initial state of temptation. This is clear from the fact from here down to Eber in Chapter 11 nothing else is meant by numbers, years of age, or names than real things, as was the case also with the ages and names of all those mentioned in Chapter 5. Here 'six hundred years' means the initial state of temptation. This becomes clear from its prime factors which are ten and six multiplied again by ten. When the same factors are involved it makes no difference whether the number arrived at is large or small. As for ten, this has been shown already at 6:3 to mean remnants, while the meaning of six here as labour and conflict is clear from places throughout the Word. For the situation is this: What has gone before dealt with man's preparation for temptation, that is to say, he was supplied by the Lord with truths of the understanding and with goods of the will. These truths and goods are remnants, but they are not brought forth so as to be acknowledged until man is being regenerated. In the case of those who are being regenerated by means of temptations the remnants existing with any man are for the angels present with him. From these remnants they draw out those things with which they protect him against the evil spirits who activate falsities with him and in this way attack him. It is because remnants are meant by 'ten' and conflict by 'six' that six hundred years are spoken of, a number in which ten and six are the prime factors and which means a state of temptation.

(Referenties: Acts of the Apostles 5:19; Genesis 6:1, 6:3, Genesis 8:1, 9:1, 10:1)


[2] As regards conflict being the particular meaning of 'six', this is clear from Genesis 1, which describes the six days of man's regeneration prior to his becoming celestial. During those six days there was constant conflict, but on the seventh day came rest. Consequently there are six days of labour, and the seventh is the sabbath, a word which means rest. This also is why a Hebrew slave was to serve for six years and in the seventh was to go free, Exodus 21:2; Deuteronomy 15:12; Jeremiah 34:14, and why for six years they were to sow the land and gather in the produce, but in the seventh they were to leave it alone, Exodus 23:10-12. The same applied to a vineyard. It is also the reason why in the seventh year the land was to have a sabbath of rest, a sabbath to Jehovah, Leviticus 25:3-4. Because 'six' means labour and conflict it also means the dispersion of falsity, as in Ezekiel,

Behold, six men coming from the direction of the upper gate, which looks towards the north, every man with a weapon of dispersion in his hand. Ezekiel 9:2.

And in the same prophet, against Gog,

I will cause you to turn about, and I will split you into six, and cause you to come up from the uttermost parts of the north. Ezekiel 39:2.

Here 'six' and 'splitting into six' stand for dispersion, 'the north' for falsities, and 'Gog' for people who seize on doctrinal matters based on things of an external nature with which they destroy internal worship. From Job,

He will deliver you in six troubles, and in a seventh no evil will touch you. Job 5:19.

This stands for the conflict that constitutes temptations.

[3] 'Six' occurs in other parts of the Word where it does not mean labour, conflict, or the dispersion of falsity, but the holiness of faith. In these instances it is related to twelve, which means faith and all things of faith in their entirety, and to three which means that which is holy. Consequently there is also a genuine derivative meaning to the number six, as in Ezekiel 40:5, where the man's measuring rod with which he measured the holy city of Israel was six cubits long; and in other places. The reason for this derivative is that in the conflict of temptation the holiness of faith is present, and also that six days of labour and conflict look forward to the holy seventh day.

Explanation of John 12      

By Rev. John Clowes M.A.

Explaining the Inner Meaning of John 12

Verses 12:1, 2. That the Lord, during his spiritual conflicts previous to the full glorification of his Humanity, derives consolation from those in the church amongst the Gentiles, who are principled in the good of life derived from himself.

Verse 12:3. On which occasion his Humanity is admitted to closer union with his Divinity in divine good and truth, through the affection of good, and the church is made sensible of that union.

Verses 12:4, 5, 6. Nevertheless they, who are in infernal love, seek to alienate divine good from the Lord, and appropriate it to themselves, and this under specious pretences of imparting knowledge to those who are in ignorance.

Verses 12:7, 8. But they are instructed by the divine truth, to desist from such alienation, since the glorification of the Lord's Humanity requires that it be made the all of divine good, and since ignorant objects would remain in the world when that Humanity was taken out of it.

Verse 12:9. That on this occasion many, who were of the perverted church, are influenced with love, not only to the Lord's Divine Humanity, but also to that good of life which is derived from him.

Verses 12:10, 11. Nevertheless they, who are principled in the love of spiritual dominion, seek to destroy that good of life, because many are led by it to acknowledge the Lord in his Divine Humanity.

Verses 12:12, 13. Who under such acknowledgement, perceiving that the Lord was about to establish his new church, adore him as the source of every good affection and pure delight, confessing him from the heart to be also the source of every truth in the church, by reason of his union with the supreme good.

Verses 12:14, 15, 16. Wherefore, as had been predicted, the Lord in his Divine Humanity is exalted to dominion over all rational good and truth in the church, although it was not known, until this dominion was effected, what was meant by the representatives by which it had been predicted.

Verses 12:17, 18. This dominion too is confirmed by those, who witnessed the restoration of the good of life in the church, and who are thus led to seek conjunction of life with the Lord in his Divine Humanity.

Verse 12:19. But they, who are in hypocritical worship, see in that dominion the downfall of their own dominion, and the establishment of a new church.

Verses 12:20, 21, 22. That some of the Gentiles, who are skilled in the doctrine of correspondence, seek acquaintance with the Lord, through intelligence, and the good of faith.

Verses 12:23, 24. And are instructed concerning the union of the Human [principle] with the Divine, which was to be effected through temptation-combats, for the salvation of mankind.

Verses 12:25, 26. And also concerning the necessity of man's renouncing self-will, or self-love, before he can be made partaker of heavenly love, and concerning the further necessity of believing in the Lord's Divine Humanity, and keeping his precepts, since these are the only means of admission into the divine presence, and of attaining conjunction with the divine good.

Verses 12:27, 28. Therefore the Lord, as to his Humanity, underwent the most grievous temptations, even to the passion of the cross, and this voluntarily, with a view to his final glorification, or the full union of his Humanity with his Divinity, which glorification is announced from heaven.

Verses 12:29, 30. But this annunciation is regarded by some as a mere natural effect, and by others as supernatural, whilst divine instruction is given, that its object is, not so much to comfort and support the Lord's Humanity, as to comfort and support his church under the process of suffering, through which that Humanity was about to pass.

Verses 12:31, 32, 33. By which process a work of judgement was to be accomplished, and the powers of darkness were to be subjugated, whilst at the same time the Lord's Humanity was to be exalted to complete union with his Divinity, and from that Humanity was to proceed divine truth united with divine good, which, influencing the minds of men, would lead them to conjunction of life with itself.

Verse 12:34. But this doctrine is regarded in the perverted church as contradictory to the Word, and therefore inquiry is made concerning the union of the Divinity and Humanity, and also concerning what is meant by the Son of Man.

Verse 12:35. And instruction is given, that by the Son of Man is meant the divine truth, manifested in the Lord's humanity, and which for a time made its abode here below, and therefore all ought to live according to that truth, lest they should be blinded by false persuasions, in which case they will not know to what end, whether of happiness or misery, their lives tend.

Verse 12:36. former part. They ought also to elevate that truth, or suffer it to be elevated, out of the memory into the understanding, and from the understanding into the will and life.

Verses 36, latter part, and 37. Nevertheless, this instruction is hid in obscurity from the men of the perverted church, and they cannot receive it, notwithstanding the miraculous testimony which attends it.

Verses 12:38, 39, 40, 41. And this rejection of the truth had been predicted, and not only so, but a reason had been assigned in the prediction, why they, whose faith is grounded in themselves, cannot admit the truth, since if they did admit it, they would only profane it, and would thus incur a greater damnation.

Verses 12:42, 43. Yet the truth is received by some who are in the knowledges of faith, but through fear they are restrained from making confession of it, which fear is occasioned by exalting human opinion above divine opinion.

Verses 12:44, 45. Therefore the divine truth again teaches, that whoever has faith in the Lord's Divine Humanity, has faith at the same time in his Divinity, and whoever has knowledge of the Humanity, has knowledge at the same time of the Divinity.

Verse 12:46. Because the Lord's humanity is divine truth, made manifest to man, in order to deliver him from infernal falsities.

Verses 12:47, 48. For the Lord in his Divine Humanity condemns no one, being desirous to save all, but every one condemns himself, who receives the knowledge of the truth, and yet cherished the love of evil which is contrary to. that knowledge.

Verses 12:49, 50. The Lord's humanity also does not think from itself, but from his divinity, from whom it derives the whole of its affection and thought, in which affection and thought there is divine love, and therefore the thought of the humanity is always under the government of that love.
