The Dyer The Gospel of Philip

God is a dyer. As the good dyes, which are called "true", dissolve with the things dyed in them, so it is with those whom God has dyed. Since his dyes are immortal, they become immortal by means of his colours. Now God dips what he dips in water.

The baptism, given by God, happens in the out-Flowing of the Holy Spirit. God gives it only to the worthy after the second coming. At that time, the baptism of the spirit transforms them so that the “dyes” are never washed out.

The Lord went into the dye works of Levi and took seventy-two different colours and threw them into a vat. He drew them out perfectly white. He said, “Even so has the Son of Man come as a dyer.".”

The seventy-two different colours repentance the list of 72 nations found in Gen 10 [Greek translation LXX] ; and the 72 Disciples mention in Lk 10:1

72 different colours or nations become one in Christ 

72 is half of 144 thus the number 72 is a symbol of the 144,000 of the nations who will be come one Christ.

The 144,000 is a  symbolic number

In Isa. 1:18, both words occur separately: "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." 

This speaks of the death of the Lord, which provided the "dye" that makes baptism valid. It symbolises the dedication of his life in doing the will of Yahweh. The token of this in sacrifice was the outpouring of blood, for blood represents the life (Lev. 17:11). Christ's blood figuratively acts as a dye by which baptism is "coloured," for "baptism" itself is derived from a Greek word signifying "to dye."

God is a dyer [dyes manifest our “true colors” whether “good” or “bad” so if one is “spotted” it must mean these have only partial truth]. As the good dyes, which are called "true", dissolve with/into the things dyed in them [once one receives truth it becomes a part of them and they begin to change their color (character) and act accordingly], so it is with those whom God has dyed. Since his dyes are immortal [the truth will set you free from the power of death] they become immortal by means of his colors. Now God dips what he dips in water [this is spiritual enlightenment being passed on through the “water” (the thoughts of the universal spirit are merged into the individual thoughts of man) while still in the physical body]. (Philip 31)

The Elohim are dyers. Just as good dyes merge with the items which are dyed in them, so does the Light of the Elohim merge with those who are dyed in it. The Divine Colors become part of them, so that they become Eternal like the Light. First the Elohim dip those who are called in water, and when they are chosen they are dyed in Divine Light. The mark of the Elohim which is placed on them at that time can never be erased.
