The Year 2017

January 1 (Day 1, Unity):  The meaning of the year 2017 is lawlessness, especially related to the laws of Marriage.  Lawlessness is disobedience to the commandments of God.  The number 17 refers more specifically to lawlessness associated with Marriage and intimacy, including Phallic Reversionism, adultery, fornication, sexual impurity, perversions, and prostitution.  Phallic Reversionism begins with rejection of Right Man Right Woman.  The number 17 is associated with Phallic Reversionism in the valley (ref. Jer 2:23), and the number 77 is associated with Reverse Process Reversionism on the mountain.

The Law

The commandments of God were called the Law in the Old Testament (1 Tim 1:8, 9, 10).  Most of the Bible was written about the Law and the consequences of violating it.  The Law contained both spiritual and temporal commandments.  So, lawlessness was both spiritual and temporal.  Violation of spiritual commandments was sin, and violation of temporal commandments included criminality and violations of the Laws of Establishment.  The ultimate penalty for violations of both spiritual and temporal law was death, although there were provisions for mercy.

In spite of God's commandments man ran off into sin.  That began in the Garden and has continued throughout history.  The greatest example of lawlessness was the Antediluvian Civilization in which Satan attacked Marriage, and the fallen angels cohabited with women (Gen 6:4).  The Flood, which destroyed that civilization, began on the 17th day of the 2nd month, where 17 is for lawlessness, and 2 is for division (Gen 7:11).   Thus, running off to have illicit sex under the power of demons is the great example of lawlessness associated with the number 17.

Lawlessness includes all manner of antinomianism and unrestrained behavior, including sin, evil, lasciviousness, promiscuity, fornication, criminality, and idolatry.  Lawlessness is generally associated with overstepping the boundaries of God.

Lawlessness is the opposite of legalism, which is rigid adherence to the letter and not the spirit of the law.  The love life of the reversionist alternates between lawlessness and legalism.  Lawlessness hides behind a cloak of legalism (Gen 3:7; Matt 23:25, 28).  The cloak of the legalist hides the ravenous wolf inside (Matt 7:15).

Phallic Reversionism

The number 17 is associated with Phallic Reversionism.  Satan tempts people to enter into lawlessness associated with Marriage (ref. 1 Cor 7:5).  Satan's demons influence people during sex (ref. Jer 2:23).   Satan also sponsors all manner of sexual perversions from adultery to homosexuality to destroy Marriage.  These sexual sins amount to idolatry (Col 3:5).

Abiding in LoveFalse teachers (2 Pet 2:18-19) and creeps are Phallic Reversionists.  They do not have a completed Edification Complex of the Soul with its Intimacy Room and lack the capacity for true love.

Marriage does not solve the problem of Phallic Reversionism. Legal sex is not sanctified sex.  The Phallic Reversionist has insatiable desires which cannot be satisfied.  No matter what he receives, he is always looking for greener pastures.  He himself is the problem because he does not have true love from the Intimacy Room of the ECS.  He expresses sexual aggression such as lust and lasciviousness in intimacy, but he does not have true love.  Only true love satisfies.  Sexual sins leave a person frustrated.

Color

The color for 2017 is green.  The green tree may symbolize the reversionist, who is thriving in sin in his native soil (Psa 37:35) or reveling in promiscuity (Jer 2:20).  The color green may symbolize pseudo happiness and unrestrained pursuit of pleasure.  It may symbolize sexual promiscuity of Phallic Reversionism and Reverse Process Reversionism.

Temptation

Divine DynasphereThe year 2017 will be an opportunity for lawlessness.  The doors will be open to indulge the desires of the flesh (2 Pet 2:18, 19).  Satan and his demons will be allowed to seduce people into lawlessness (1 Cor 7:5, 9; 2 Cor 11:2, 3; Jas 4:7).  However, the believer must resist the temptation to give up his Spiritual freedom in the Divine Dynasphere for the glory of the world (Gal 5:1, 13).

Satan Sponsors Lawlessness

Satan sponsors anarchy and lawlessness in opposition of God and the Divine Institutions.  Satan and his demons promote unrestrained lawlessness to thwart the Plan of God.  Satan rules through the Evil King, who is called the Antichrist and "man of lawlessness" (2 Thess 2:3).  He also empowers the Prostitute of Babylon, who runs civil institutions and churches and performs lawless, lascivious rites (2 Ki 9:22; Rev 2:20).

Satan is in the party crowd in their carousing and rave dancing.  They live for the day without consideration for tomorrow.  Their motto is "Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die" (Is 22:13; 56:12; Lk 12:19; 1 Cor 15:32).

Consequences

Lawlessness may provide pleasure for the moment, but it will lead to intensified punishment from God.  The displeasure of God is not worth the discipline that will follow.  Fornication and adultery will bring intensified punishment.  In the end, lawlessness will lead to weakness and loss of capacity for life and love.  The lawless person will end up like a dried up bush in the desert (Jer 17:5-6).  Unrestrained lawlessness results in Divine punishment, sowing to the wind and reaping the whirlwind (Hos 8:7).  And it results in the punishment of the "sons of disobedience" (Eph 5:3-6; Col 3:5-6).

Examples:

  1. David and Bathsheba (2 Sam 11:2-4; 12:1-23; Psa 32:1-11).
  2. Fornicating in lawlessness and being demoted into Intensified Divine Punishment (Prov 7:21-23).
  3. Committing adultery and destroying the marriage.

Pleasure Lusts and Quarrels

Lawlessness has two sides the pursuit of pleasure and bitter antagonism (biting and devouring).  It is fueled by jealousy, which knocks out love.  Jealousy drives arrogant ambition and Frantic Search for Happiness on the high swing and bitterness on the low swing.  The lawlessness of pleasure lusts on the high swing is in opposition to bitter lawlessness of quarrels and fighting on the low swing.  Failure to handle lawless sins and lusts of the Old Sin Nature will lead to strife and quarrels with others in the world (ref. Jas 4:1).

A society preoccupied with lawless pleasure lusts will be cursed by quarrels and fighting.  Promiscuous people quarrel and fight.  Holy rollers quarrel and fight.  Lust and lascivious pleasure lusts are balanced by bitter quarrels and fights.  There is hatred toward those who interfere with pleasure lusts and legalistic opposition and jealousy toward those who have worldly pleasures.

Conclusion

The meaning of the year 2017 is lawlessness, especially related to the laws of Marriage.  This begins with rejection of Right Man Right Woman and proceeds into Phallic Reversionism and idolatry.  This type of lawlessness is pervasive.  It includes the sexual sins, such as lasciviousness, sensuality, fornication, adultery, and prostitution along with mental attitude and overt perversions like incest, homosexuality, masochism, and rape.

Sexual lawlessness is not just immoral.  It is sin that is sponsored by the devil.  Satan and his demons actively promote sexual sins to oppose the Divine Institution of Marriage and to enslave people.  Cohabitation is not just an attack on Marriage but  also on the Divine Institution of the Family.  It is also a violation of the Four Generation Curse.  Those who cohabit are unpatriotic and non-Christian.  They are the slaves of Satan.  They have no love for their cohabitants, their children, nor anyone else.

Those who engage in lawless pleasure lusts will be cursed by quarrels and fights from legalism.  Immoral lawlessness will be condemned by bitter legalists and rip marriages, families, and society apart.  Neither side has the answer.  The human solution is no solution.  The Divine solution is the only solution.  Only True Love of the Spiritual life can bring Divine blessing.  Only respect for Bible Doctrine can bring Spiritual freedom and provide the Integrity Envelope for True Love.
