Looking at the account of creation in Genesis chapter 1, it will be observed the earth was an embodiment of water (Gen 1:2). In fact, the earth was formed out of water and by water (2Pet 3:5). This is why God was able to destroy the world in the days of Noah using *waters from above* and *waters from below* (2Pet 3:6). After God separated light from darkness on the 1st day, he used firmament (the apparent surface of the imaginary sphere on which *celestial bodies* appear to be projected. which God later called heaven in Gen 1:8) to separate the *waters of above* from the *waters of below* (which later became sea) on the 2nd  day. This separation of waters on the 2nd day, led to the appearance of the dry land, *formation of seas* and emergence of plants, crops from the ground on the 3rd day. On the 4th day, the *2 great light (Sun and moon) and stars* were made to appear. On the 5th day, living creatures (animals) filled the air, water and land.

From the above introduction, it will be observed that the 3 main media of life; *WATER, LAND, AIR-SPACE* were made in the 2nd and 3rd days of creation. In particular, the separation of the waters gave rise to the appearance of the *dry land and air-space*. Hence, there is power in the work of creation which works using *water and land* as well as *water and air-space*. The secret of this power of *water and land* is revealed in *seashore sand* while the power of the *water and air-space* is revealed in *morning dew*.  Note that that the powers of *water and land* (e.g.  *seashore sand*) and *air-space* (e.g. *morning dew*) has its origin from that action of using the firmament (heaven) to separate the waters of the earth. Note that all these, were done by and through the word of God. Hence, at times, when God wants to explain to us how his word operates, he uses water as a symbol.  Isa_11:9  They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the *earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea*. Hab_2:14  For the *earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea*.

*A. WATER:* Sand (as in seashore sand) is affiliated to this. The best of clean sand is gotten from seashore. Water depicts life in the school of the spirit; water of life (Holy Spirit), word of life. Joh 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of *water springing up into everlasting life..Eph 5:26 That he might *sanctify and cleanse* it with the *washing of water by the word.2Pe 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

*B. AIR-SPACE:* Birds fly in the air. The dove is a biblical symbol of the Holy Spirit. Stars are heavenly space located. This portrays celestial.

*C. LAND:* Earthly dust comes from land. A symbol of the flesh and spiritual weakness. This is why the mortal body goes from dust to dust.
Hence, when God was going to speak to Abraham about the nature of the seeds of his covenant with him (the emergence of a nation Israel and the coming of Jesus), he used *water and land* object i.e. seashore sand and *air-space* objects i.e. stars.
Gen 22:17  That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the *stars of the heaven*, and as the *sand which is upon the sea shore*; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

The 1st time the word *dust* was mentioned in the bible is in Gen 2:7 when God formed man from the *dust of the ground*.

While sand and dust can be seen as being from the land, sand of the seashore has link with the waters of the seas. This is what makes it spiritually different from the dust of the ground. Hence, *sand of the seashore* is a *water and land object* while *dust* is strictly a *land object*. Stars are *Air-space* objects.


*D. WEIGHT*:  *Dust is physically light* and can be blown from one place to the other. This is a symbol of being childish spiritually and prone to erroneous teachings.

Eph 4:14 That we henceforth be *no more children, tossed to and fro*, and carried about with every *wind of doctrine*, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive

But *Seashore Sand is heavy*. Can't just be blown all around.

*E. EFFECT*:  *Dust is dirty*. It dirties! *Sand* of seashore is clean and neat. Seashore sand has no dirt (its sand has no dust). Note that the serpent was cursed to eat dust (not sand) in Gen 3:14. Dust represents a natural man (adamic nature). The devil has control over such. Snakes struggle to move on sand! Hence, for a son of the spirit who enjoys God's mercy in the mercy land style (ie.. new covenant dimension of Luli), he is *satanically unreachable,  untouchable, and not consumable*. This is why the bible says..

Luk 10:19  Behold, I give unto you *power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy*: and *nothing shall by any means hurt you*.

This verse reveals 2 things; Our *power and authority* over the devil and our *protection* from him.

When you press your feet on dust-ground, it’s firm and makes impact. But on sand, the feet will sink. No enemy can survive operating in a seashore sand of the children of God. They will sink (i.e. they will be exposed and fail).This is why we were given *CCC Hym 452: Ati tewon mole ….*

*F. MOTION*:  *Dust is not compact*. In motion, it scatters, it blows everywhere. A symbol of disunity. But *Sand is compact*. In motion, particles stay together. A symbol of unity. The present administrative disunity in CCC is a dust state. Seashore sand forms a harmless terrain (no stones or thorns or thistles or hard objects to pinch your feet). This is a reverse of the curse on the ground and its effects in Gen 3: 17-19. A symbol of life with no struggle (weeds do not grow in sand and sand is soft to dip hands into and drains water).
In spreading the good news of the gospel of Jesus, he mandated us to *shake off the dust of our feet*.

Luk 9:5  And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, *shake off the very dust from your feet* for a testimony against them.

As we all know, spreading the gospel is giving of eternal life. When a man rejects eternal life, then such is ready to perish. Thus, Jesus mandates us to shake off the *dust off our feet* as a symbol of rejection of life and acceptance of condemnation to eternal death.

*STARS*: Physically, a *star* is type of astronomical object that is luminous (i.e. can produce its own light). The most prominent stars are in constellations and asterisms. This spiritually depicts order and arrangements. In the bible, stars often represent angels as rampant in the book of Revelation. Jesus’ birth was revealed through a star as seen by the wise men. Stars are celestial bodies, a symbol of celestial beings. Sons of God are stars of God on earth. Even though, Lucifer (now Satan), was once a star of God, but has lost that spiritual status because he has fallen.

Luk 10:18  And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

Jesus is the bright morning star (Rev 22:16), and he has made the morning star arise in our hearts (Rev 2:28, 2Pet 1:19)


As a son of the spirit, the lord can instruct one to combat some battle in the celestial manner. This involves the use of starry bodies. A few people demonstrated this..

Jos 10:12 Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, *Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon*; and thou, *Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.*

Jos 10:13 And the *sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged* themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.


Jdg 5:20 They *fought from heaven*; the *stars in their courses fought against Sisera*

It must however be noted that the sons of darkness can use it against the sons of light..

Psa 121:6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon bynight.

Because of the glory of CCC, she is highly feared in the kingdom because of her celestial powers as authorized by God in accordance to her covenant design. Some hymns testify to this

E.g. CCC hymn 940.

CONCLUSION: As a seed of Abraham through Christ Jesus, you are a
1. Star of the sky (celestial); and a
2. Sand of the seashore (eternally alive).
Terrestrial is dusty while celestial is starry and sandy. This is why we do not sprinkle dust at CCC burial or bring dead bodies into the church. We sprinkle water. Seashore Sand is water washed! Let the water of life (holy spirit) continue to wash and cleanse you blamelessly till Jesus comes.

Note: The application of Seashore sand in this lecture has nothing to do with making sinking sand a foundation of a house.
