The Truth

Jesus taught that those who fail to put on the Wedding Garment and come to TheCall of the Wedding Feast (see Required Wedding Garment), are thrown into what the Gospel portrays as the "outer darkness" (see below Outer Darkness) -- which condition of Outer Darkness when rightly understood, parallels that of the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions (see Plato's Cave Of Illusions).   Because our modern culture possesses absolutely no understanding of the implications -- or, the causal factor of why this realm is portrayed in this manner -- it can be stated that modern man dwells in abject ignorance and intellectual poverty.   Why?   Because we fail to understand the great wisdom in the statement in the Gospel of Thomas: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..."  And in our failure to understand the nature and reality of what we see, we remain drowning in a sea of confusion.   In the below there is a section entitled Jesus The Professor -- and when rightly understood the Gospel teachings of Jesus should be taught in our schools and universities as Law, Philosophy, and Culture.   But because modern man is totally ignorant of the Natural Laws of the earth, mankind suffers from living Lawless Lives of extreme hardship, needless turmoil and suffering.  

Contrary to popular cultural opinion, what we portray as religion today is not at all religion -- but rather, very much quasi-religious philosophy that has been defined by various secular authorities over the past 2000 years.   What is the difference?   Philosophy is a system of belief -- often involving faith, and even blind faith in the concepts of the philosophy.   Whereas, religion is the mindset and lifestyle that is lived, in order to prove or develop one's philosophy.   But because mankind has been robbed of his birth-right as personified in the adage to Know Thyself, the vast majority of people have no idea as to their true potential.  Why has this key to self-knowledge been suppressed?  Because of direct secular intervention and the forceful interference in the teachings of and foundational structure of genuine religion, quasi-religious philosophy that is for the most part spiritually dead-ended, has become redefined as actual religion.  To the degree that the adherents of the three major Western religions -- Judaism, Christianity and Islam -- remain totally ignorant of the true purpose and objectives of their own religious paths today.   Further, when rightly understood, the Eastern religions of Hinduism and Buddhism -- as well as their modern applications in the New Age and Theosophy -- are just as ignorant of man's true reality as is the three Western religions.   What is truly important in man's quest to overcome his inherent ignorance of Self and the World in which he is presently living, is to begin to understand why Jesus portrayed this realm as the "outer darkness" of mind and being?   And why in the analogy of Plato's Cave this world is portrayed as a shadow-realm of illusions?   Without first understand the nature of this realm and why it is portrayed as a realm of illusions, little to no progress can be made both intellectually and spiritually.  

When I say that the principles which Jesus taught should be taught in our colleges and universities today, it is our own ignorance with respect to the nature and purpose of the original teachings that would cause us to question such a statement.   The true purpose and objective of these religions is not to convey to the multitudes what to blindly believe -- but rather, what they must do to bring about that condition of mind whereby they would know the Truth of all Truths by virtue of their own personal experience with the Truth.   When rightly understood, not only is the portrayal of Jesus in the Gospels an essential teaching on the Natural Laws of Creation which control every aspect of each person's Consciousness, Mind and Being, but also the means to prevail and overcome the three-dimensional limitations of mind that limits all of mankind's development of Mind and Being -- enabling the seeker of Truth the ability to Deepen and Expand the Mind to the degree that such a person will have the capacity to virtually Know All Things.    And the fact that our colleges and universities totally lack this important base of self-knowledge, is the reason it can rightly be stated that the Gospel of Thomas is correct in its assertion that modern man dwells in a state of intellectual poverty -- i.e., "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty"   Therefore, if your objective is to totally disenfranchise your child from both their true-self and the their true-reality, then send them to one of our intellectually-barren colleges or universities.   And if you want to place a barrier between you and God, then enroll in a Theological Seminary or School of Divinity.   

After reading the above, one should rightly ask: How can such blanket statements be valid?   The answer is very simple -- i.e., so long as academia continues to perceive this world as being complete or whole -- or, what can be portrayed as independently self-sustaining -- then they will not only remain anchored to the shadow-illusions of this world -- but they will inhibit their development.   Modern physics has basically proven the grave error of our cultural paradigm of thinking (see Science Proves Religion).   This world is a holographic reality that is a pattern of the Whole -- i.e., the pattern of the Macrocosm is imposed upon the microcosm -- often portrayed in the words, as above so below.   And what this means is that the Divine Pattern of Creation is replicated into all of its parts.   But from the perspective of the microcosmic parts, what this does is create the illusion of perceptive-wholeness and quasi-completion.   Quoting from The Foundation Of The Age Of Enlightenment:

If it is true -- as the modern physicist affirms -- that everything in this life that we see with our physical eyes, and experience has a preexisting cause in the (Ætheric) Field -- and what we observe in the Field I have portrayed as the Source of what we see -- then what we have is conformation of what physicist Walter Thirring stated in his book, Urbausteine der Materie where he wrote about matter that modern physics “...has put our thinking about the essence of matter in a different context.   It has taken our gaze from the visible - the particles - to the underlying entity, the field.   The presence of matter is merely a disturbance of the perfect state of the field at that place; something accidental, one could almost say, a ‘blemish’.   Accordingly, there are no simple laws describing the forces between elementary particles… Order and symmetry must be sought in the underlying field.”   One of the primary realities that science has to come to terms with in order to advance beyond their present level, is the fact that physical matter is the result of the forces which intersect in the Ætheric Field coming together, causing what Walter Thirring above describes as a "blemish" that we observe with our organic physical senses.   And the folly of carnal man is his assertion that what he sees is all there is -- when in fact without the conscious development of the latent Intuitive spheres of mind, man in his organic "natural" condition is virtually blind to the whole picture that Nature presents to him. 

The enigma of the limits of man's physical senses was noted by Albert Einstein who concluded with respect to man's dilemma when he stated: "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."    And what the Enlightened Visionary has warned is that because man's religious, philosophical, cultural and educational institutions "...have created a society that honors the [rational] servant and has forgotten [and suppressed the development of] the [intuitive] gift" -- thus, blinding mankind to the underlying cause of all that man sees and experiences in this world, man remains perpetually lost and blind in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- or what the philosopher portrayed in the analogy of the illusions of Plato's Cave (see Cave) -- is the inherent blindness of the undeveloped organic mind of man in his natural condition.        

If the physicist is correct, and everything that we observe in this physical world is the downstream effect of the forces that first manifest in the (Etheric) Field -- then what we are observing is varying frequencies of thought that allegorically appear different to us.   Quoting from the Allusion Of The Forms Of Matter: In his 1951 textbook on quantum theory, Bohm offered some interesting speculations on the analogies between quantum processes and thought processes, thus carrying further the celebrated statement made by the astronomer James Jeans two decades earlier: “Today there is a wide measure of agreement… that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”; and the statement by astronomer Arthur Eddington:  “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”.   Max Planck who is considered the founder of quantum theory stated: "As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter."   More recently, cyberneticist David Foster described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   The reality of the holographic theory says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space.   The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”   Which is why the Gospel of Thomas declares: Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest." 

The illusions of Plato's Cave -- or the blindness of what the Gospel portrays as the "outer darkness" of Mind and Being (see Outer Darkness) -- is all the effect of .   "...The brain [being] a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe” -- and only perceiving that spectrum of Thought which appears to be physically manifest in the objects we observe with our bodily senses -- which provides us a very fragmented and partial perception of the Whole.   Which means that the scriptures -- and especially those copies that were hidden away form the political leadership of the Church and kept safeguarded in many of the monasteries -- when the Key Of Knowledge was properly applied, were in fact text-books which presented the Laws and Forces of the Cosmology of the seeker/disciples own Mind, which had to be developed in order to overcome man's natural organic limitations.   And only in coming to fulfill the adage to Know Thyself, could the seeker then apply the Key Of Knowledge to the Laws and Forces of Nature and the Natural World, and connect directly with what Giordano Bruno portrays as the Light of the Soul within man himself.     

If we pose the question: What esoteric base of knowledge could possibly be concealed within the written text of the allegorical scriptures which the linear mind of man remains a virtual stranger to?   Let me quote from an article written by Dr. Stanislav Grof entitled Lessons from Modern Consciousness Research, wherein the Dr. writes: "It is hard to imagine that Western academic circles will continue indefinitely ignoring, censoring, and misinterpreting all the extraordinary evidence that has in the past been amassed in the study of various forms of holotropic states of consciousness. Sooner or later, they will have to face the challenge of the new data and accept their far-reaching theoretical and practical implications. I firmly believe that in not too distant future the old materialistic world view will be replaced by a new comprehensive vision of reality, which will integrate modern science with spirituality and Western pragmatism with ancient wisdom. I have no doubt that it will include as an important element the new revolutionary understanding of consciousness, human nature, and the nature of reality that has emerged from the study of holotropic state"    That the traditional linear-perception of Creation which is based on Darwinism has long been proven to be a grave error and intellectual void has caused man's philosophers and traditional scientists to cling to what can only be portrayed as flat-earth fossilized conclusions as presented in the words: “The present scientific establishment has grown somewhat fossilized by its current world picture and is locked into a view of reality that has outlived its usefulness.  It has begun to limit mankind’s growth and has so increased its sense of specialization, separateness, materiality, and mechanical computer-like functioning that it is in real danger of self-extermination (William A. Tiller, Materials Sciences Department, Stanford University).

What is a holotropic state?   As defined in the Wikipedia: "Holotropic Breathwork is a practice that uses breathing and other elements to allow access to non-ordinary states for the purpose of self-exploration. It was developed by Stanislav Grof, M.D., Ph.D. and Christina Grof, Ph.D. Holotropic breathing has some similarities to rebirthing-breathwork, but was developed independently".   What it is, is the traditional rhythmic breath-work used by Mystics since the very dawn of time itself.   But interestingly enough, Dr. Grof futher explains: "The content of holotropic states is often spiritual or mystical. We can experience sequences of psychological death and rebirth and a broad spectrum of transpersonal phenomena, such as feelings of oneness with other people, nature, the universe, and God. We might uncover what seem to be memories from other incarnations, encounter powerful archetypal beings, communicate with discarnate entities, and visit numerous mythological landscapes. Holotropic experiences of this kind are the main source of cosmologies, mythologies, philosophies, and religious systems describing the spiritual nature of the cosmos and of existence. They are the key for understanding the ritual and spiritual life of humanity from shamanism and sacred ceremonies of aboriginal tribes to the great religions of the world."   Which confirms not only the account of Giordano Bruno that "The Divine Light is always in man, presenting itself to the senses and to the comprehension, but man rejects it"  -- but also the assertion of the Gospel as presented in the article on the Key Of Knowledge  where it states:

While the Christians, like the Jews before them who threw away the Key of Knowledge, look for the Kingdom to come outwardly upon the earth, the Gospel itself states that the Kingdom will never come upon the earth, because it is within you -- and it is therein that you must seek it: "And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, See here! or, see there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21).   If the words of Jesus are true -- and the Kingdom is within you -- then the question that Christians should be asking, is how must the Kingdom be entered?   The answer is the proper application of the Key of Knowledge by turning the scriptures within your own mind and being -- i.e., "How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering" (Luke 11:52).  Thus, in understanding these words spoken to the Pharisees, the questions must be asked: How did the Pharisees and Jewish authorities "...hide the key to knowledge from the people"?   Why did Jesus condemn the leaders of the Jews for failing to enter the Kingdom themselves? -- i.e., "...You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves"!   And how did the religious leaders of the Jews "...prevent others from entering?"   That the primary objective of the Gospel is to prepare and enable the seeker/disciple to enter the Kingdom, is further demonstrated in Jesus' condemnation of the blind religious leaders as seen in the words: "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to" (Matt 23:13 NIV).  Which means that the Kingdom of God is not something that will come if we wait for it -- but rather, it is a reality which man must seek and find -- within himself.

In the Bible translation known as The Message, the above reality of Jesus' words with respect to the usage of the Key of Knowledge is portrayed in true clarity.   In this translation when Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him and said: "If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you" (John 8:31-32 TheMessage) -- and once again, neither Christian or Jew who have thrown away the Key of Knowledge can understand these words which are of the utmost importance.   Jesus didn't say that they would believe the truth -- or that they would discern what they believed would be dogmatic truth out of the scriptures or some book written by other men -- but rather, Jesus conveyed to them that if they follow in TheWay, that they "...will experience for yourselves the truth...and it is this SELF-EXPERIENCED TRUTH that ...will free you" from the error and ignorance that consumes the people of this world -- and especially the blind guides who portray themselves as rabbis,  teachers, clergy, religious leaders and authorities.

 

It is because in the environment of modern academia that only the Linear spheres of mind are developed, while constraining and even atrophying the necessary Intuitive spheres of mind -- the development of which is absolutely necessary to begin to access the Source of Higher Knowledge that enables the person to begin to perceive from the more Complete twelve-dimensional Source -- then the very method of rote-programming that is utilized by academia today, will continue to mentally and spiritually flat-line the person at an organic (carnal) level of understanding and perceptive-comprehension.   When rightly understood, this would be the equivalent of perceiving the iceberg as only the tip that protrudes above the water-line.   One of the mirages of this shadow-realm that keeps mankind a prisoner in the Cave of Illusions, is the delusion that this world is complete and whole -- when in reality, it is only a fragment of an unseen higher reality that is beyond the perceptive-vision of man's organic senses that are formed out of matter that is of an earth-vibrational frequency.    And while man possessed the innate ability to perceive beyond the barrier of this realm, this can only be accomplished when the Intuitive spheres of mind are developed.   Which means that so long as academia continues to instruct in the manner that it does -- and so long as man continues to throw away the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ) in their interpretation of the scriptures -- then mankind will remain totally alienated from his True-Self, and Spiritually Disenfranchised from the Universal Source of Knowledge that is the birth-right of the prodigal son to access.    

In the same way that in our system of universities there is a vast difference between an associate degree and a doctorate degree, the objective of all genuine religions is to bestow upon the sincere seeker a Spiritual Doctorate Degree in the acquisition of Truth.   But for political and monetary gain and advantage, charlatan clergy and despotic secular rulers have always attempted to use the power of belief in the unknown to control the minds of the people to their own personal benefit.   And because they could enact counterfeit rules and objectives, they were successful in peddling bogus associate degrees as doctorate degrees to people who were controlled by ignorance and superstition.   Meanwhile, they successfully portrayed those with a genuine Spiritual Doctorate Degree as heretics, and induced the multitude of blind believers to hunt them down and murder them.   Thereby casting the multitude of people into a dark abyss of abject ignorance.

The problem is that mankind cannot change the Rules and Laws of Creation.  There exist Forces and Realities that are beyond man's ability to redefine and change. You can't recreate woman as a man by rendering her the same with your rhetoric.   Man cannot negate gravity, and jump up and reach the moon.   Regardless of what man calls the day light when the sun is shining bright in the noon sky, day cannot be redefined as midnight when there is an absence of sunlight.   Man cannot make summer cold and winter hot.   Man cannot stop the rising of the tides of the sea.   Man cannot order a fish to walk on the earth.   And while he may convince the mass of people that if the name is changed, so too is the essence of reality that is portrayed, in his attempt to redefine realities that are beyond his control, all he accomplishes is his own disenfranchisement from the Truth.   This is also true with respect to when bogus religious and secular leaders have attempted to redefine what constitutes a Spiritual Doctorate Degree from On High.   The fact that they issue counterfeit associate degrees and attempt to portray them as the crowning achievement for mankind, does not by any means change man's True Reality.   Further, if what the ancient wise visionaries of the past have said is true -- a reality confirmed by Jesus when he said the the Kingdom (of God) can never come upon the earth in the manner that men seek it, because it is within your own mind and being (Luke 17:20-21) -- and therefore, the only path to the Higher Reality of mankind is within our own mind and being -- then no amount of searching externally can provide the long-sought answers to life.  

The question is: Do we judge the validity of a genuine doctorate degree, by the degree that is issued by a non-accredited charlatan school that fails to maintain proper requirements and standards of accreditation?  The original mystics, visionaries and disciples and followers of Jesus all had achieved valid Spiritual Doctorate Degrees which for political reasons, were rejected by the non-accredited authorities which were affiliated with the secular rulers in their time-frame.   Recently the Chinese government took the position that they are the sole authority who can appoint the next Dalai Lama.   Which provokes the question: Can a communist secular government appoint a spiritual position that can only be filled by a spiritually advanced soul who incarnates into this leadership position?   In the same way that the person who the Chinese government would appoint would be a fraud, so too was the Church when it came under the control of the Roman Emperor Constantine in the fourth century.   Therefore, so too was the whole chain of clergy which the Church ascribed as being orthodox, as well as the whole of the body of clergy which came afterward and adopted the man-made dogma which the Church adopted.   In the same way that a Dalai Lama degree issued by the Chinese government has no real validity, neither does the Church ordained clergy which have been acknowledged by said Church.   Unless they have passed the requirements associated with an Original Spiritual Doctorate Degree, their Ordination and Authority is a bogus fraud.   Why is this important?  While the modern clergy would be unable to teach the important tenets of Natural Law in our schools because of the questionable requirements of being ordained by the Churches of this world, anyone who have achieved a Spiritual Ordination by acquiring the Knowledge of the Kingdom and passing the Requirements set forth from On High, would be able to convey the Essentials of Natural Laws within which all of Creation is Manifest.   That this essential Knowledge is totally lacking and void in our institutions of higher learning today, is because the body of quasi-intellectuals have built upon a gravely flawed foundational paradigm. 

The Gospel of Thomas teaches the need to recognize what is in your sight (see above), in order to begin to perceive the unseen through the reflection in the outer world.   In total confirmation of the foregoing, Paul stated to the congregation at Corinth:  "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Cor 4:18 KJV).   What does it mean to look at the "...things which are not seen"?   While ignoring the things which are seen?   In agreement, Einstein stated "Only those who can see the invisible can do the impossible."   Today we portray our institutions of learning under the term Academia -- which is defined in the Wikipedia: Academia is the internationally recognized establishment of professional scholars and students, usually centered around colleges and universities, who are engaged in higher education and research.   But what is the origin of the word?  

The word comes from the akademeia in ancient Greece, which derives from the Athenian hero, Akademos. Outside the city walls of Athens, the gymnasium was made famous by Plato as a center of learning. The sacred space, dedicated to the goddess of wisdom, Athena, had formerly been an olive grove, hence the expression "the groves of Academe."  In these gardens, the philosopher Plato conversed with followers. Plato developed his sessions into a method of teaching philosophy and in 387 BC, established what is known today as the Old Academy.  By extension Academia has come to mean the cultural accumulation of knowledge, its development and transmission across generations and its practitioners and transmitters. In the 17th century, British and French scholars used the term to describe types of institutions of higher learning.

The foregoing should provoke the question: What is Higher Learning?   What would constitute higher learning?   In total rejection of the above statements with respect to developing the ability to perceive the unseen, modern academia insists on looking only on what is seen with the physical eyes and senses -- totally ignoring the statements by Plato in the analogy of the Cave that what  is seen is a shadow-image that keeps man mesmerized by the illusions being danced upon the walls of the Cave.   Modern academia not only looks solely on what is seen -- totally rejecting what can be is portrayed as the unseen -- but they inhibit the development of what constitutes the unseen, thereby alienating the student from the very Source of what they physically observe with their senses.   Darwin's Theory of Evolution which is taught in virtually every subject in our modern schools, is based upon the position that only what is seen is real -- and what is seen came into being totally independent of (supernatural) non-physical realities.   Yet, not only the Apostle Paul, but the very source of the term and concept of academia, states that what is seen is an illusion -- i.e., an incomplete and illusive shadow-image that is being danced upon what it portrayed as the Cave of Illusions of this world.   Which Cave is parallel to that portrayed in the Gospels as the "outer darkness" of mind and being.  

From the time our children have developed to the degree where they can begin to learn, they are trained by academia that only what is seen is real -- and our educators continue to promote the Theory of Evolution, even though they have proven it to be a fraud.  Einstein experienced shock when he first came into contact with the new reality of atomic physics, and wrote in his autobiography: “All my attempts to adapt the theoretical foundation of physics to this [new type of] knowledge failed completely. It was as if the ground had been pulled out from under one, with no firm foundation to be seen anywhere, upon which one could have built”.  In much the same fashion, the European physicist Niels Bohr stated that “…The great extension of our experience in recent years has brought to light the insufficiency of our simple mechanical conceptions and, as a consequence, has shaken the foundation on which the customary interpretation of observation was based.”  The vast difference between what would be called the common knowledge of man, and the higher spiritual reality attested to by the mystic and visionary of man's distant past, has begun to be demonstrated by the modern scientific community.    Quoting physicist Walter Thirring in his book, Urbausteine der Materie where he wrote about matter that modern physics “...has put our thinking about the essence of matter in a different context.   It has taken our gaze from the visible - the particles - to the underlying entity, the field.   The presence of matter is merely a disturbance of the perfect state of the field at that place; something accidental, one could almost say, a ‘blemish’.   Accordingly, there are no simple laws describing the forces between elementary particles… Order and symmetry must be sought in the underlying field.”  

In the February 1979 Psychology Today interview with brain scientist Karl Pribram, the world which he attempted to describe confirmed the vision witnessed by the ancient mystics and enlightened wise men -- and when their vision of man's reality is properly understood, confirmed the reality of the Bible that neither true believer nor staunch critic is even prepared to acknowledge and understand -- i.e., Pribram wrote: “It isn’t that the world of appearances is wrong; it isn’t that there aren’t objects out there, at one level of reality. It’s that if you penetrate through and look at the universe with a holographic system, you arrive at a different reality, one that can explain things that have hitherto remained scientifically inexplicable: paranormal phenomena… synchronicities, the apparently meaningful coincidence of events”   More recently, cyberneticist David Foster described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   The reality of the holographic theory says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space.   The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”    While this is true, it does not address the problem as seen in the fact that our physical senses which are composed of earth-matter, can only perceive the frequencies that are of the earth.   And what both the Mystic and the modern physicist portray as the (Ætheric) Field, is not only not of the earth in origin -- but like the tip of the iceberg, is far more vast than what the (physical) eyes of man can see and perceive.   Holographically, the physical brain interprets the redacted image of what is perceived, in an allegorical form -- which is why the Gospel account of Jesus portrays what organic man sees as being cast into the "outer darkness" (of mind and being) -- while Plato portrays what man sees as illusion and shadow-images which have been projected onto the wall of the Cave.   From the perspective of Plato's analogy of the Cave, it rightly can be stated that  “It isn’t that the world of appearances is wrong; it isn’t that there aren’t objects out there, at one level of reality. ...but what is seen with one's physical senses is only a fragment of a higher reality that man's earth-senses do not normally detect".    Which provokes the question: Can you develop the ability to perceive and understand the larger reality that man in his organic condition is blind to?   Most definitely yes!  In fact, developing this ability of being able to perceive in Wholeness, is not only your Destiny, but as portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son, is your inherent birth-right.  But this ability to perceive the Whole Reality of what is presented to your senses, requires some work -- much of which is the opening and maturing of the mind with which you look out at the world.  

When rightly understood, the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions presents to us the dilemma of dwelling in a holographic reality -- which means that mankind is portrayed as the prisoners who are shackled in the cave who are only able to see and perceive the shadows that are being danced upon the wall of the cave.    But more importantly, what this means is that the findings of the modern physicist totally supports the analogy of Plato's Cave as seen in the words of Einstein:  "...There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality”   In the analogy of Plato's Cave, the prisoners are only able to see the shadow-images that are danced upon the wall of the cave -- in much the same way that the physicist portrays the objects we see in the world as a "blemish" that has been created by the intersecting forces of the Field which man can't see with his organic physical senses.     And in the same way that Einstein portrays the source of what we observe in the unseen Field as the only true reality, the analogy of Plato portrays the shadow images being danced upon the walls of the cave as illusion.  Yet, when rightly understood, what Plato portrays as an illusion, is more correctly an allusion, because it is a three-dimensional image of a higher twelve dimensional reality that cannot be expressed in the limitations of physical matter.   Therefore, there is a CODE to understanding the higher reality of what we see with our physical senses, and it is this CODE that is totally lacking in what is taught by modern academia, and is necessary to begin to perceive and comprehend what constituted "higher learning" that is totally absent in academia today.  

Modern physicists have proven that the particles of matter that we see with our physical eyes, are connected in another non-physical dimension that is beyond man's organic vision to detect -- i.e., what in the above is portrayed as the Field.    In the words of Einstein: “We may therefore regard matter as being constituted by the regions of space in which the field is extremely intense… There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality” (quoted in M. Capek, The Philosophical Impact of Contemporary Physics).   Yet, academia for the most part not only continues to ignore the fact that modern physicists have proven the ancient visionaries and mystics are correct, but our educational systems continue to promote the Theory of Evolution which is easily proven to be based upon a fraud.  

 

 

  The Christian Dilemma: While Christians send their children to educational systems which totally focus on what modern physicists portray as the "blemish" in the intersecting lines of force within the Field -- totally ignoring what the physicist portrays as the unseen Source in the underlying Field -- to the degree that the child becomes disenfranchised from the the higher reality and unable to perceive and understand the Source in the Field of what is seen with their physical eyes and senses -- and this they continue to do, regardless of the fact that one of the primary foundational objectives of their original religious teachings was to enable mankind to perceive and learn from the Source which the organic vision of man is blind and deaf to the reality of.   While the Gospels portray this world as the "outer darkness" of mind and being, the parallel analogy of Plato's Cave which modern physicists now support and have proven to be correct, portray this world as a shadow-world of illusions that are being projected by an unseen higher reality that Paul commands to seek out and look only to the Source as to being real -- i.e., "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Cor 4:18 KJV).   Yet, the Christian world not only rejects what is real while promoting the temporal illusions of this world, but they perpetuate the temporal in shadow-churches which perpetuate the worship of a shadow-savior created by a Roman Emperor who was not even a baptized Christian, rejecting the Truth and TheWay when it is presented to them.   

We teach our children to look to and learn from books composed by those who see only the illusion of what the physicist portrays as the "blemish" or shadow-image -- while remaining blind to the unseen Source.   We teach our children to learn only from authorities who are themselves mesmerized by the shadow-images being danced upon the walls of the Cave of Illusions -- totally alienating our children from the Source of these shadow-images -- shadow-images that Paul portrays as temporal.   As I will demonstrate in the below (see Plato), the term Logos which is used in the first chapter of the Gospel of John, was drawn from the writings of Plato and the other mystic writings of the Greeks.   And the follower or disciple of Christ was instructed to seek both the Kingdom within, and the Logos within which was portrayed by the original disciples of Jesus as the True Prophet.   In the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter is quoted as stating that the Christian must seek to learn ONLY from the indwelling True Prophet/Logos/Son of God -- and reject the doctrines and dogma of the authorities of this world.    Yet, the Christian world totally rejects the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- embracing instead the man-made dogma of a series of Roman Emperors.  

The Parable Of The Prodigal Son: In the Gospels, the parables of Jesus are representative of Universal Truths that are equally applicable to all of mankind.   These parables are not written for the Jews, or the Christians -- or even the Jews and the Christians -- but are representative of the Universal Laws under which all of mankind equally dwells.   Which means that the parable of the prodigal son can't be portrayed as representative of any one person, or group of people -- but rather, must be understood universally as presenting the reality that all of mankind are equally portrayed in the parable of the two sons -- i.e., a.k.a the parable of the prodigal son.  

Many interpretations of the parable of the two sons have demonstrated that what is personified with respect to the reality of mankind as the prodigal son, remains an enigma -- to the degree that many aspects of what is presented in the parable can't be interpreted from the perspective of modern Church doctrines.   That the many Christian attempts to interpret the parable has demonstrate their abject failure to comprehend the true spiritual meaning of the Gospels, is seen in the reality that the primary problem is seen in the fact that modern Christians have been so spiritually disenfranchised by the dogma of the Church, that it remains virtually impossible for them to interpret and understand the parable from a Universal Perspective.   Who is the elder son who has never in any way deviated from the Will of God, and remains in the Kingdom of the Father?  If the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ) is properly applied to the interpretation, then the elder son is an integral part of our inner self (see http://SoulSelf.org ) that remains spiritual and un-fallen into the trials and ignorance's of this world.   And thus, Gospel of Thomas saying 84 must be seen as the answer to the great dilemma of the elder son where it states: (84) Jesus said, "When you see your likeness, you rejoice. But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!"  (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image). 

Who and what is the "images" who came into being before us?   This is not only a crucial question  -- but because of the corruption of the Church, will remain virtually impossible for the modern Christian to understand. In view of the fact that in the parable we are ourselves portrayed as an "image", the only possible answer is that these other "images" that did not become "manifest", came into being before us -- and unless we become "manifest", we will share in their plight.  Which provokes the question: Who, or what is portrayed as "...your likeness"?  It is the un-fallen part of ourselves that can be portrayed as our True-Self -- i.e., our Eternal Soul-Self -- that has remained with the Father while we, the lost prodigal son, has aimlessly wandered the earth without any knowledge of who we truly are.   Why can't the modern Church understand the parable of the two sons?   Because many of the most important teachings were removed or corrupted by the fourth century Church of Rome (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).   Which corruption has left a great void in the understanding of the modern Christian.  

The question can't be answered by the modern Church as to how did mankind who is personified as the lost prodigal son, exist before venturing into this, the Far Country?   If it is true that we existed prior to being born into this life -- and that each of us has even abandoned the Heavenly Kingdom by virtue of our own volition and choice -- then the question must be asked: Why don't we remember that aspect of our existence prior to our birth into this world?   In the parable, the prodigal son squanders away his inheritance on "riotous living" -- but what exactly is the inheritance that he is squandering away?   After squandering away his inheritance, the prodigal son falls under the control of what is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country -- but who or what is the Citizen?   Paul portrayed the Citizen of the Far Country as the god of this world who rules over the earth.   In the parable, there is no savior who comes into the Far Country to redeem the suffering prodigal son.   Even when we, as the lost prodigal son, are seen as suffering at the hands of the Citizen of the Far Country, our Heavenly Father does not come to the aid of the lost son -- but relies upon the son "...coming to his senses", and on his own choice and volition, chooses to return to the Kingdom of the Father on his own accord. 

The Prodigal Son And The Deist/Theist Perception Of God: Once again, in the parable even when the prodigal son is suffering at the hands of the Citizen of the Far Country, God does not intervene directly -- nor is a savior sent into the Far Country for his salvation.    In the parable, the only resolution to the suffering and dilemma is when the prodigal son is portrayed as "coming to his senses", and begins the return journey to the Father who he had previously abandoned.   In fact, the original disciples and Ebionite Nazirene followers of Jesus who walked and talked with him daily, understood that each prodigal son must themselves "come to their senses", and begin the journey home.  The earliest of disciples and followers who walked with the man Jesus daily, did not at all believe that Jesus was God incarnate in the manner of the Romans -- but rather, they understood that Jesus was a true Holy Man who had fulfilled the Law within his own body and mind, and had therefore attained “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366).   The third century author and Church authority Hippolytus makes reference to the original first century disciples of Jesus who were Ebionite Nazirenes, and writes that it was their position that the man Jesus "was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely.  Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ." Hence, they maintained that when any of the other lost prodigal sons "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity."  (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).   How can this be?   Because each of us are the prodigal sons and daughters -- and the man Jesus is our elder brother.   Jesus became the pattern for all of mankind, because he was the first of the prodigal sons to return to the Father.

  The Spiritually Impotent Prodigal Son: In the above we are confronted by the indisputable fact that those who daily walked and talked with Jesus totally rejected the dogma of pagan Rome that Jesus was the latest incarnation of the Mithraic sun-god -- and thus, God incarnate.    And this indisputable fact was written into the Gospels prior to being corrupted by the fourth-century Roman Church (see http://TheTenWords.com ).   And with the condemnation and suppression of the teaching on the pre-existent Soul that evolves to Completion and Perfection over the course of many lifetimes (see http://ChristianReincarnation.org ), those sincere modern Christians who read and study their Bibles, are denied the very essence of the teachings and facts of how the man Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ), and achieved the Condition of At-Onement with the Logos (aka Son of God) that exists within all of mankind (see below: The True Prophet).   And with the condemnation and suppression of this ultra-important Gospel teaching, the parable of the prodigal son and the whole of the Gospels were rendered spiritually impotent.

A rational person would ask the question: If Jesus was indeed a man -- just like all other men -- then how did he accomplish all the miracles -- including arising from the dead?   Because the Soul of the man Jesus lived many lives embracing the path of Spiritual Evolution that enabled him to achieve Perfection -- as stated in the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus taught: "You, therefore, must be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is Perfect" (Matt 5:48).   But since achieving this state of perfection is impossible in one life, faith-based Christians are left with no real answers in their quest to understand the Gospel teachings -- and how the man Jesus became the Son of God.   And without understanding the process of travailing in TheWay and picking up their own cross in the process of refining and transforming their lower "animal-soul" nature that Paul warns renders them incapable of comprehending both the true spiritual meaning of the Gospels, and the higher reality of the Soul (see http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ), they are themselves incapable of achieving the objectives set forth in the Gospels teachings.   And thus, as the lost prodigal sons and daughters, they have been rendered Spiritually Impotent.   

What Jesus understood and conveyed to his disciples with regard to who he was, is exactly what was stated by Peter after he was Anointed and Enlightened by the Holy Spirit: Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know” (Acts 2:22 NIV).   Where did Peter get the notion that Jesus was a man -- a man "accredited by God"???   A man that God performed miracles, wonders and signs through?   Didn’t Jesus himself say that “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself...” (John 5:19 NAS);   “The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works” (John 14:10 NKJ); “I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me” (John 5:30 NKJ); “...I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me. The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him” (John 8:28-29 NIV); “for the works which the Father has given Me to finish -- the very works that I do -- bear witness of Me, that the Father has sent Me” (John 5:36 NKJ); “I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word. Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You” (John 17:6-7 NKJ).  

In view of what Jesus conveyed to his disciples and followers, we find the direct witness of the Apostle Peter as quoted by his disciple Clement is the Homilies of Clement 16:15 where Peter stated when he opposed Simon Magus: “Our Lord neither asserted that there were gods except the Creator of all, nor did He proclaim Himself to be God...”.   It is a well recorded fact of history that the disciples of Jesus, his brother Jacob who is known as James (see http://BrotherOfYeshua.com ), and the Ebionite Nazirene Disciples and believers who were his friends, brothers and followers, did not believe that Jesus was God.   Those people who spoke to him -- ate with him -- traveled with him -- and were taught by him -- and was even his brother -- believed exactly as it is written in the scriptures: “But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men” (Matt 9:8 KJV).   And whatever works that the Father did through Jesus, even greater works would be accomplished through his genuine disciples and believers who followed in his footsteps: "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.  And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.  If you love Me, keep My commandments" (John 14:12-15 NKJ).   But the modern Christian neither understands the Works of the Spirit (see The Epistle of Christ), and in clinging to the lifestyle of the heathen of this world, and the doctrines of pagan Rome, the modern Christian does not even understand the Commandments of Jesus and the teachings of TheWay.  

To the detriment of the modern believer, the leaders of the church have perpetually ignored the warning of the Apostle: “...let no man beguile you in any wise: for (it will not be,) except the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, he that opposeth and exalteth himself against all that is called God or that is worshipped; so that he sitteth in the temple of God, setting himself forth as God” (2 Thes 2:3-4 ASV).    What the Apostle is herein very clearly predicting is that there would come a time when the god of the Christian Church will be a false god.   Historically speaking, it has been almost universally recognized that the period in time that the Apostle could have been referring to was in the fourth century when the church made a covenant with the Roman Emperor Constantine.   With regard to this falling away, the Adam Clark Commentary writes of this passage of Paul's Epistle: “[Except there come a falling away first] We have the original word apostasia in our word apostasy; and by this term we understand a dereliction of the essential principles of religious truth, either a total abandonment of Christianity itself, or such a corruption of its doctrines as renders the whole system completely inefficient to salvation. But what this apostasy means is a question which has not yet, and perhaps never will be, answered to general satisfaction” (from the Adam Clarke Commentary).    Not to depreciate or make less the significance of any one of the individual statements presented in the above words, what the modern believer must recognized is the far-reaching totality of the statement: But what this apostasy means is a question which has not yet, and perhaps never will be, answered to general satisfaction”.   Ultimately, what this means to the modern believer is that each and every church authority from the fourth-century to the present, as well as every single preacher of the gospel, speaks from the position of concession -- which concession is that there is a great void in their knowledge of the truth.    In the words of John Wesley: "...that fatal period when the Emperor Constantine called himself a Christian; From this time onward - the Christians had no more of the Spirit of Christ than the heathens...." (John Wesley's Works, vol 7, Sermon 89, pp. 26-27).

In further explanation with regard to this crucial prediction of the Apostle, the Adam Clark Commentary then goes on to provide us a vivid description of Constantine and the formation of his new church: “[Who opposeth and exalteth] He stands against and exalts himself above all divine authority, and above every object of adoration, and every institution, relative to divine worship, sebasma, himself being the source, whence must originate all the doctrines of religion, and all its rites and ceremonies; so that sitting in the temple of God -- having the highest place and authority in the Christian church, he acts as God -- taking upon himself God's titles and attributes, and arrogating to himself the authority that belongs to the Most High” (from the Adam Clarke Commentary).   That these events came to pass is well documented from a historical perspective -- i.e., the church was ruled by Satanic forces that dictated every aspect of Christian doctrine.   And while it is true that many faithful believers, clergy, pastors and religious authorities today have recognized the defilement of the church that took place beginning in the fourth century, what could not be revealed until now was the absolute certainty that, because the Church has never fully recovered from the darkness and corruption that was imposed upon the teachings of the church by the ruthless political despots of the past, essential foundational principles, as well as indispensable elements of New Covenant knowledge of what is constantly referred to in the Bible as the Mysteries of God, is presently absent from the thinking of the body of the faithful believers to this very day.  

The Roman Emperor Constantine was a sun-worshiper.  The pagan/mithraic priests told him that his evilness inhibited his ability to achieve salvation.  He was a barbarian who even murdered some of his family members.   At that time (early fourth century) it was still a doctrine that when a person is baptized, that they are forgiven all of their sins (see New Covenant Sacraments) -- and in this original teaching Constantine believed he could work a spiritual loophole.    He lived his life in constant accompaniment of a priest who would baptism him -- and he was baptized on his death bed.   But from the period of his becoming the vicar of the Church and his death -- when he was not even baptized -- he determined what doctrines of belief were valid, and what was not.   Thus, Edward Gibbon writes in the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire: ”Constantine easily believed that the heretics, who presumed to dispute his opinions or to oppose his commands, were guilty of the most absurd and criminal obstinancy... Not a moment was lost in excluding the ministers and teachers of the separated congregations from any share of the rewards and immunities which the emperor had so liberally bestowed on the orthodox clergy. But as the sectaries might still exist under the cloud of royal disgrace, the conquest of the East was immediately followed by an edict which announced their total destruction”.    Thus, in the same way that whoever did not embrace the religion of the emperor met with the sentence of death, and those Spiritual Christians who Constantine deemed heretics, were hunted down and murdered.     

If our colleges and universities taught true wisdom and knowledge, then they would build upon the foundation of the parable of the two sons. If our religions were led by enlightened men of God, then the leaders of these religions would convey to their congregations the universal wisdom of the parable of the prodigal son.  And when rightly understood, all of mankind are the personification of the prodigal son who has ventured into this world -- i.e., the Far Country -- and has become lost and dwell under the control of what is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country -- sometimes portrayed as the god of this world -- controlled and limited by the consciousness of the earth.   And we don't remember our more distant past previous to the present cycle of birth, because we dwell in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see below).   But what this means is that all the organizations and institutions of mankind that exist in this world, are all equally under the dominion and control of the Citizen of the Far Country -- and having become corrupted, they all equally have been turned from their original design and intent, in order for the god of this world to enslave and continue to maintain control of the prodigal sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. 

  Why Can't Truth Exist In This World?  In what could be seen as a rather bazaar statement, in the Epistle of Peter to James the statement is made that if the esoteric body of Truth that Jesus could only reveal to his inner core of disciples was to become lost and thrown away, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error"!!!  Which provokes the question: Could such a thing be true?   And perhaps even more important, what could possibly cause such a condition to exist that would make it virtually impossible for seekers to find the Truth?   The Gospel portrays this physical realm as the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- Plato's Cave portrays this world as a Cave of Illusions -- modern physicists portray physical matter as a type of "blemish" that forms within the intersecting forces in an unseen field -- and what we do perceive with our physical senses, can be portrayed as a three-dimensional allegorical image of a higher twelve-dimensional reality that, because of the limitations of this physical realm, the complete image can't manifest.  Which is why it is warned: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" (Prov 14:12).  Why?   Because what you see is only a partial representation of what is real -- i.e., a three-dimensional allegorical image of a higher twelve-dimensional reality that can't fully manifest in this realm.   And that what we see is an allegorical shadow-image, is the reason why the Gospel of Thomas declares: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you...".   Therefore, the seeker must develop the ability to perceive and understand with Wholeness -- what is beyond the three-dimensional limitations of this realm -- but to even begin to accomplish this, he must expand his perceptive vision and understanding to behold with the necessary Wholeness to perceive from a more complete twelve-dimensional perspective.   How can modern man even begin to bring this expanded perceptive vision about, when he is in denial of the existence of anything beyond the three-dimensional shadow-images which he sees with his physical senses?        

When Paul stated to the baptized believers that he himself had instructed: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ) -- what he was stating was that until they deepen and expand their conscious mind beyond the organic three-dimensional limitations, they could only receive the entry-level "milk" of the Gospel message, because their carnal mind could not comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God.   And this is confirmed in the statement of Paul:  “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).    

The foregoing provokes the all-important question: What is meant by the term that Paul used when he described the very people who he had himself taught who were incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom when he portrayed them as being of a "natural" organic level of mind and consciousness?   The Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary writes with respect to the meaning of the word in the original Greek language: "natural man—literally, 'a man of animal soul'."  Further,  the Treasury Of Scriptural Knowledge states of this ignored and profound statement at 1 Cor 2:14 which reads (quoting Paul): "But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" -- wherein the proper interpretative-meaning of Paul's words with respect to the reality of what is portrayed by Paul as the natural man, Bible Commentary then states with respect to the meaning of Paul's words: [Psuchikos,] the animal man, one who lives in a natural state, and under the influence of his animal passions; for [psuche] means the inferior and sensual part of man, in opposition to the [nous] understanding, or [pneuma,] the spirit. And this is not only true -- but is is a fact of life that all mystics and enlightened souls must deal with when interacting with organic man.   Which is exactly why Paul profoundly stated to the very people who he had personally taught the Gospel message: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ).   Stating to the body of confirmed and baptized believers who he stated had received all truth and knowledge pertaining to the elementary "traditions" of Christ: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ). 

Mankind is of the Fourth Kingdom -- i.e., mineral, vegetable and animal -- and his lower nature and body consciousness is comprised and immersed in these three lower kingdoms as personified in the subheading: Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature.   Which is why in his Epistles Paul commanded to "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV) -- further warning that “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).   Yet, because important teachings were removed from the Gospels, and modern man does not at all understand the reality of his lower animal nature, he fails to understand that he can very well be portrayed as being of an animal consciousness who is walking the earth in the outward form of man -- i.e., the fourth kingdom being ruled over by the lower three that comprise the consciousness of his physical body.    Therefore, what Paul warned with respect to comprehending the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom is that “But the natural man [who is still of an animal-soul] does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually received (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).   Therefore, the baptized and confirmed believers who Paul had personally taught were incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the soul and the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel, because they were yet too immature to comprehend man's higher spiritual reality -- i.e., "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ).   And this fact of reality remains true unto this very day.    Without doing as Paul commanded with respect to the transformation of the lower animal-consciousness of the body, it will remain impossible to perceive and comprehend the true spiritual meaning of the Gospels.   And it will make no difference if you study the scriptures in a university or seminary -- in the same way that Paul himself could not convey to those he personally taught the spiritual meaning of the Gospels, neither can any man teach this meaning without the seeker/student undergoing the process of transforming the "natural animal-soul" consciousness of the physical.  

When Jesus was asked why he did not speak plainly to the multitudes of people, he stated to his disciples: "Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand..." (Mark 4:11-12).   Why did they  "...see, and not perceive; and ...hear, and not understand..."?   Because of the three-dimensional limitations of man's physical organic senses and comprehension.   And this is why, writing to faith-based Christians, Paul warned: “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).   Yet, the Citizen of the Far Country who Paul portrayed as the god of this world, has convinced modern Christians that they can ignore this important wisdom of Paul, and they can fulfill the commandments and requirements set forth in the Gospels by merely expressing their faith and belief in their brother Jesus.  Ignoring the very words attributed to Jesus: "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46 KJV). 

 

 

 

A Brief Examination Of Darwinism

Charles Darwin possessed absolutely no knowledge of quantum mechanics and physics, or the inner workings of the sub atomic world.   Neither was Darwin a mystic.  Darwin based his Theory of Evolution on his observations of the natural world.   But today we now can demonstrate that Darwin's vision was so incomplete, that it can be classified as totally spurious.   In the words of Niles Eldredge of the American Museum of Natural History: “The old explanation that the fossil record was inadequate is in itself an inadequate explanation.”   Why?   The fossil record is inadequate because everything that we see and perceive in this realm is directly caused by patterns of force being exerted upon matter from beyond the bounds of this three-dimensional world in which we presently dwell.  And the fact that the fossil record failed to support Darwin's conclusions, is openly acknowledged in his own words where he wrote: "Why then is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic chain, and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and gravest objection which can be urged against my theory" (Charles Darwin, On The Origin Of Species). According to Darwin's theory, the geological record should be full of species that are slowly increasing in complexity over time.  Since evolution relies on time, chance, and incremental steps, sudden leaps are not possible -- which demonstrates that the fossil record itself directly contradicts the theory of evolution!   And even if a proverbial missing link could be found, this would not in any manner negate the fact that it is the forces in the Ætheric Field that has brought about all changes and variations of life-forms that we observe in the physical world.

Atheism which is the denial of God or a Higher Power of Intelligence that brought the world into being, is manifest in what has often been called the quasi-religion known as Secular Humanism -- which is founded upon the Darwinist Theory of Evolution that rejects all non-physical influence in the creation and evolution of this world.   Through observation of nature, Darwin attempted to demonstrate that this world is the result of a series of accidents and natural occurrences -- that there is no unseen forces at work that have molded and influenced this world.   But because Darwin had no means of gazing into the sub-atomic world, his theories stand today as being reliant upon an outdated model of science that has long ago been dispelled as grave error.   Yet, because Darwin and the Theory of Evolution is the holy grail of the Atheists who attempt to use it to demonstrate the defectiveness of the Bible which they remain totally ignorant of its purpose (see http://AnInconvenientTruth.org ), the belief in God, and therefore use it to reject religion, it remains the foundation upon which the mindset and thinking our modern culture is built upon.   

 

  Science Proves Religion - The Vision Of The Mystic In Search Of Gnosis: In the following I will demonstrate that modern science has proven the validity of the analogy of Plato's Cave -- which analogy is parallel to the Gospel portrayal of the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- which can be rightly portrayed as the journey of the prodigal son into this, the Far Country.  What this means is that the conflict between science and religion is totally superficial -- and when rightly understood, the findings of modern science totally support and confirm the vision and perspective of the Mystic. 

Building upon the above where the vision of the Mystic is explored that the higher reality of the Soul is twelve-dimensional, while this realm is limited to three-dimensional shadow-images: Einstein experienced shock when he first came into contact with the new reality of atomic physics that was presented to him, and wrote in his autobiography: “All my attempts to adapt the theoretical foundation of physics to this [new type of] knowledge failed completely. It was as if the ground had been pulled out from under one, with no firm foundation to be seen anywhere, upon which one could have built”.   In the words of Einstein: “We may therefore regard matter as being constituted by the regions of space in which the field is extremely intense… There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality” (quoted in M. Capek, The Philosophical Impact of Contemporary Physics).   But to those familiar with the writings of Einstein, his higher enlightened vision of reality should come as no surprise -- i.e., in his own words: "The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science.  He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness" ( Albert Einstein - The Merging of Spirit and Science).   In much the same fashion, the European physicist Niels Bohr stated that “…The great extension of our experience in recent years has brought to light the insufficiency of our simple mechanical conceptions and, as a consequence, has shaken the foundation on which the customary interpretation of observation was based.” These “…mechanical conceptions” make reference to Darwin and the Theory of Evolution which is both opposite and in conflict with man’s true reality.  

The Universe is a Great Mind: In his 1951 textbook on quantum theory, Bohm offered some interesting speculations on the analogies between quantum processes and thought processes, thus carrying further the celebrated statement made by the astronomer James Jeans two decades earlier: “Today there is a wide measure of agreement… that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”; and the statement by astronomer Arthur Eddington: “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”.  Max Planck who is considered the founder of quantum theory stated: "As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter."    More recently, cyberneticist David Foster described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   The holographic reality says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space. The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”

What is the impact of these findings of modern science?   The reality that is being conveyed is that what we perceive as solid physical matter, is being interpreted in this manner because our brains interpret that frequency to make what we see appear concrete.   Moreover, what it also means is that we perceive only a fraction of Creation because our brains, which by virtue of the fact of their physical nature, can only detect frequencies that are within the same (physical) spectrum.  In the same way that in order to be effective, an antenna must possess the physical characteristics that enables it to receive a certain range of the frequencies that the device (radio, TV, wireless phone, etc.) is intended to operate within, our physical mind and bodies are designed to function within a certain spectrum of Creation -- and this is predicated by the fact that our physical nature is composed of the elements that are of this world.

In his Preface to Stalking The Wild Pendulum, by Itzhak Bentov, William A. Tiller, Materials Sciences Department, Stanford University writes: “The present scientific establishment has grown somewhat fossilized by its current world picture and is locked into a view of reality that has outlived its usefulness. It has begun to limit mankind’s growth and has so increased its sense of specialization, separateness, materiality, and mechanical computer-like functioning that it is in real danger of self-extermination”.  Yet this fossilized science is still being promoted among our school children -- it remains as the founding principle upon which our culture is based -- it is being used to inhibit both religion and freedom in our present-day culture -- and has greatly limited the ability of man to function in his true multidimensional and spiritual reality.

Bell’s theorem, which was proposed in 1964 by J.S. Bell, a physicist working in Switzerland, was first confirmed experimentally in 1972. Physicist Henry Stapp, in a 1975 federal report called it the most “profound discovery of science”.  Bell’s theorem succeeds in exhibiting the bizarre nature of the subatomic world.   Experiments show that if paired particles which are identical twins in their polarity fly apart, and the polarity of one is changed by an experimenter, the polarity of the other particle changes instantaneously.  These similarities were pointed out in the book, The Tao Of Physics, by Fritjof Capra, and The Dancing Wu Li Masters by Gary Zukav. Zukav’s book takes its title from the Chinese expression for physics, wu li, which he translates as “patterns of organic energy”, and writes: “Bell’s theorem not only suggests that the world is quite different than it seems, it demands it. Something very exciting is happening. Physicists have ‘proved’ rationally that our rational ideas about the world in which we live are profoundly deficient”.   This mindset is also the theoretical foundation upon which such things as seat belt laws are based (see http://Ebionite.com/seatbelt.htm ).   If a person believes in accidents in the manner they are taught by our Atheistic secular culture, then accidents will happen to them.  Thus the words of scientist Itzhak Bentov: “The quantum theory asserts that there is no way one can measure some sets of things, like momentum and position, together very accurately... because the consciousness of the experimenter interacts with the experiment itself. Therefore, it becomes possible that the attitude of the experimenter must also influence the outcome of any particular experiment”.

Even though they appear to us as separate, the particles remain mysteriously connected regardless of the fact that there is no physical connection.  The problem is that the mind of man in it’s natural organic state is simply incapable of perceiving the far-reaching ramifications of this great truth -- and even less prepared to comprehend the results of the intertwining connections that are maintained not only between individuals and groups of people, but also about their beliefs and what they have come to believe to be accidents because of counterfeit beliefs taught to them by our outdated Darwinist philosophy and mindset.

In his book, Urbausteine der Materie, physicist Walter Thirring wrote about matter that modern physics “…has put our thinking about the essence of matter in a different context. It has taken our gaze from the visible - the particles - to the underlying entity, the field. The presence of matter is merely a disturbance of the perfect state of the field at that place; something accidental, one could almost say, a ‘blemish’. Accordingly, there are no simple laws describing the forces between elementary particles… Order and symmetry must be sought in the underlying field.”   What the physicist is telling you is that your physical body that you observe in the mirror -- the physical form that you use to present yourself to the world around you -- is in fact caused by a series of intersecting lines of force in your own, personal field -- and it is this field that you do not see, that causes what the physicist portrays as a "blemish" in this realm that we perceive through the physical eyes that has been formed out of this blemish (see Ætheric Field at http://TheThreeLies.com#etheric ).   That the two exist side by side in a state of duality, is confirmed in the words of Einstein who said: "The special and general theories of relativity, which, though based entirely on ideas connected with the field-theory, have so far been unable to avoid the independent introduction of material points, …the continuous field thus appeared side by side with the material point as the representative of physical reality. This dualism remains even today disturbing as it must be to every orderly mind" (Albert Einstein, 1954).   And thus, if we desire to see and experience the source of the material, then we must begin to access the surrounding field. 

In his understanding of the fact what what is seen in this three-dimensional shadow-world is only a fragment of the whole image, Paul stated: "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Cor 4:18 KJV).    Paul stated this, because he understood that what man perceives with his physical senses is the "shadow-images" of Plato's Cave -- the "blemishes" which the modern physicist attests to -- and when rightly understood, what we observe with our physical senses are allegorical symbols impressed into the images of matter.  The source of the images that we see exist in a twelve-dimensional realm that cannot be expressed or manifest in this three-dimensional shadow-world.   So what we see with our three-dimensional senses, is an allegorical symbol of the higher twelve-dimensional source-reality that our physical senses are unable to perceive and comprehend.   

Again, if what we observe in this world as being concrete, is not really concrete, but merely a frequency that our brain interprets in a concrete manner, then we have the means to develop and evolve our mind in order to permit it to detect the full spectrum of frequencies that make up the totality of all of Creation.    And if we pose the question: Can we do this?  Both the Bible and the holy men and women of the past convey to us that an enlightened vision and understanding of life is not only possible, but it is our eventual destiny.  Thus, the problem is seen in the fact that man’s true reality is neither addressed, acknowledged, or acted upon in any intelligent manner by our politically correct culture that controls the heartbeat of society today.  Yet, from a more modern scientific perspective, the Darwinist perception of Creation amounts to little more than junk-science, while the findings of genuine science has become as a cult that is not even discussed in our modern educational systems.  To the detriment of our own children, what we teach instead is secular dogma -- anti-religious secular dogma -- that has absolutely no basis in fact.

If we could but for a brief moment gaze at this world from the perspective of higher reality, what we would immediately realize is that what science is learning about Creation today was in fact elementary to the eyes and understanding of the Hebrew-Christian visionaries of the past. Thus, the great dilemma: It is one thing through scientific endeavor to become aware that these other dimensions exist, and become cognizant of the impact they have upon this world as science has begun to do -- and still quite another to move in and out and explore these other realms of existence.  Moreover, all these scientific theories that we have newly discovered today, is not new at all -- and have been well established in the scriptures and the writings of the prophets and visionaries since the dawn of time.  How can this be, you will ask?  Simple!  If we are to even begin to come to terms with our own higher reality and purpose of life, it is absolutely important for us to recognize the fact that man does not need a technically advanced society in order to explore the realms of Higher Mind -- i.e., he only needs his mind -- then it will also be realized that our world of modern technology can in fact be detrimental to our own development, because it has the ability to greatly distract man in his search for the answers to Life.   What this ultimately means is that the wisdom of the ancients was in fact superior to the modern philosophy that our universities teach today.  In fact, if man could see the wonders of Creation clearly, he would quickly realize that the supposed conflict between science and religion is superficial, and is nothing more than the result of ignorance with regard to both the true nature of religion and scientific fact.

  The Great Allegory Of Mind And Matter - What Do We See: In one of the most ignored Gospel statements we are not only portrayed as the offspring of God, but as dwelling within the Mind of God -- i.e., “‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’” (Acts 17:28 NIV).    Put this together with the above statement by  James Jeans that: “...the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”.    Or the words of Arthur Eddington:  “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”And you have portrayed a higher reality that few are even prepared to contemplate -- much less, understand with sufficient degree to even form a realistic opinion.    Further, if you attempted to convey this reality to the common man of the first century, they would very much reject what you are saying as "foolishness" -- much like most of mankind today.    When the first century elder Ignatius wrote to the Christian congregation of believers that “Might I not write to you things more full of mystery?  But I fear to do so, lest I should inflict injury on you who are babes.  Pardon me in this respect, lest, as not being able to receive their weighty import, ye should be strangled by them” -- he said this because if he was to begin to even convey the truth and reality of man's higher soul and spiritual nature and the Kingdom, these Christians would very quickly dismiss him as a crazy lunatic, and would no longer listen to a thing that he says.   Therefore, Ignatius, as with all the biblical authors (see Mystery), understood that the mind of the believer must be matured -- the dormant spheres of mind that do not correspond to this physical world must become activated and developed -- in order for the believer to begin to perceive and grasp his own higher soul and spiritual reality.   And this expansion of organic human conscious beyond normal physical limits is what is portrayed in the process: "Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom will he make to understand the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just drawn from the breasts? For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little" (Isa 28:9-10 NKJ).    In the same way that an infant grows into a child and adult one step at a time, so too does the process of mental-expansion take place line upon line.  

Perhaps the key to bridging the visionary perception of the Gnostic Mystics who authored the scriptures, with that of modern cyberneticist David Foster who described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source, is in beginning to understand why we see allegorical images.   The reality of the holographic theory says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space.   The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”   And only then can we begin to grasp why Jesus stated that organic man dwells in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness ), and why Plato portrayed man as dwelling in a type of Cave of Illusion (see Illusions ).   And the answer is provided in the above words that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space."    Explaining that our "...brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”  

What this means is that we dwell in a Great Mind -- and based upon the frequencies of thought that we perceive and interact with our physical senses, our brains interpret these frequencies in the allegorical forms that we perceive as being concrete matter.   Each aspect of thought is represented by a (universal) symbol that our brains interpret in the form that we observe when we look out at the world.   But if we pose the question: Is what we see concrete matter?   And why are these forms in the outer world said to be an illusion?   What we are in fact seeing is animated thought-generated symbols -- i.e., thoughts that our brains (organic consciousness) interpret in the context of an allegorical symbol that we perceive as the shapes and forms that our physical consciousness interprets in the appearance and meaning that we see it as.   Thus, the words of Karl Pribram in the February 1979 Psychology Today interview where it is stated that: “It isn’t that the world of appearances is wrong; it isn’t that there aren’t objects out there, at one level of reality.  It’s that if you penetrate through and look at the universe with a holographic system, you arrive at a different reality, one that can explain things that have hitherto remained scientifically inexplicable: paranormal phenomena… synchronicities, the apparently meaningful coincidence of events”.   In the words that “It isn’t that the world of appearances is wrong..." -- what is being conveyed is that what you see -- or think you see -- in the outer world of appearances, is thought portrayed in an allegorical form that permits the people stuck in the limitations of this realm, to interact with a higher reality (of mind) that is beyond their conception -- and even beyond their wildest imaginations.  

We dwell in a world of animated mental imagery -- a world where aspects of mind are impressed into the forums of nature -- this enables us to physically interact with aspects of  mind -- and while the forms with which these images are imbued are cast by Universal Mind, because each of us is under a different sequence of Laws by virtue of the fragment our mind is polarized to within the spheres of the Tree of Life, we then perceive the forms of mental imagery from an often uniquely different and sometimes opposite perspective than what is perceived and understood from another person.    This segmented perspective which is responsible for what we can portray as the Tower of Babel Syndrome with which organic man is imbued, causes man to not only understand the allegorical accounts of the scriptures differently, but also the mental imagery of the outer physical world itself -- as explored in the foregoing, and presented to us in the 90th Chapter of the Gospel of the Nazirenes where it is stated: "The One truth has many sides, and one sees one side only, another, and some see more than others, according as it is given to them.  Behold this crystal; how the one light is manifest in twelve faces, yea four times twelve, and each face reflects one ray of light, and one regards one face, and another, another, but it is the one crystal, and the one light that shines in all..."  

Therefore, each person not only has a unique perspective of the universal symbols of mind as expressed in the mental imagery of the forms impressed into Nature -- but each person's perception is further narrowed by (1) what sphere of mind they are polarized to; (2) the Laws they were /are born under; (3) gender; (4) the filter of race; (5) the cultural influences of their present life; (6) the influence of religion and philosophy; (7) each persons personal level of mental evolution they have achieved over the course of the past lives their higher soul-self has lived.   The result is that what each person sees and evaluates in the outer world, more often than not is a reflection of that persons own mind and thinking.   And it is through this interaction with a reflected image and imagery of their own mind, that forces each persons growth and development through the interactions of life which are brought about by the Laws that have created each person's learning curriculum of life -- with the objective being to force each individual into mental interactions which not only serve the individual needs of each person, but bring about that person's own evolutionary development of mind.    

The scriptures are nothing more than an extension of the holographic imagery of mind impressed into nature in the form of an allegory which is intended to assist the disciple to escape the illusions of this world -- i.e., the "outer darkness" of Plato's Cave.   Thus, the second saying of the Gospel of Thomas: "Let the one who seeks not stop seeking until he finds; and when he finds, he will be agitated. When he is agitated he will be amazed, and he will rule over everything."   He will be amazed, because absolutely nothing that we see is concrete or even real -- and it is merely thought-images that are allegorically animated into forms and symbols that represent the reflected thought which each of us is often uniquely interacting with -- ultimately, reflecting back to us an aspect of our own mind and being.   And in overcoming this world of illusion -- i.e., escaping Plato's Cave (see Plato's Cave ) -- or, entering through the inner "narrow gate" that Jesus taught (see http://GateOfEden.com ) -- one is able to enter the higher reality of the soul-self, and see and perceive the source of all things. 

When we listen to a voice on a telephone, we are not hearing the actual voice -- but rather, the telephone reproduces the frequencies that have been generated in the analogue wire connection, into a voice that our ears can hear.   When we listen to a recording, the source of the music is a series of frequencies imprinted into a CD.   When we watch a DVD, our televisions are reproducing both sound and picture from frequencies that have been imprinted upon a disk.   Similarly, the true source of what we see in this world is a frequency of thought that is projected into an allegorical image of the thought that this image represents.   Thus, we see and interact with allegorically animated thoughts that our brains interpret as being concrete matter.    Yet, our true self -- i.e., our higher soul-self that exists in an inner parallel realm -- sees and understands all things as they truly are.  

The organic mind of man remains under the delusion of what can be portrayed as the Tower of Babel Syndrome with respect to each person's incomplete perception.    From the perspective of a matured and evolved higher state of mind, because man in his undeveloped organic condition totally lacks any degree of Wholeness, and continues to perceive through the limited vision of one of one of the fragments within the twelve spheres of mind -- in conjunction with the seven (7) factors presented above -- organic (natural) man's vision and understanding is so limited, that everything he thinks he knows, is always in profound error -- i.e., "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" (Prov 14:12).  

As a simple example: Water is H2O -- indicating two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen.    And in the same way that from an individual perspective, both hydrogen and oxygen are integral elements of water, if they did not exist independently of each other, then there could be no such thing as water.   While this is a very simplified example, aspects of mind follow a similar pattern.    Again, in the above scriptural statement of fact: "The One truth has many sides, and one sees one side only, another, and some see more than others, according as it is given to them.  Behold this crystal; how the one light is manifest in twelve faces, yea four times twelve, and each face reflects one ray of light, and one regards one face, and another, another, but it is the one crystal, and the one light that shines in all..."    In the same way that water could not exist if either the hydrogen or oxygen elements were missing, what is portrayed as the One Truth in the above, could not exist, if any of the twelve elements that make up that truth did not exist.   In the same way that when light is shown through a prism, because of the frequency differences it can be observed that white light is in fact made up of the balance of seven colors, the One Truth that is referenced in the above quotation, is comprised of twelve lesser truths that comprise an integral part of the Whole.  

In the same way that each person physically begins their journey into life as a one-cell embryo -- and that within the one is the DNA that contains the potential for the seven glands and the twelve organs that constitutes the necessary foundation for the embodiment of the mind

  Spiritual (Intuitive) Development - Overcoming The Three-Dimensional Human Limitation: One of the primary objectives of the Original Scriptures was the development of the Intuitive spheres of mind that brought about Enlightenment through the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) of the Mind -- which enabled the seeker/disciple to transcend the natural barriers of the physical, and be taught directly by God.   But to even begin to accomplish this spiritual transformation of the body and physical consciousness, those spheres of mind associated with the Intuitive had to be developed and then integrated with the rational-linear at a higher level of man's consciousness and being than his normal organic consciousness would naturally permit.  In the Gospel of Thomas Jesus commanded to seek out James the Righetous -- but because the Christian world reads the scriptures in the manner of the Jews as a history book, they remain absolutely clueless as to the important reality expressed by Jesus to those seeking Truth and TheWay.  

In their original condition before being corrupted by the Church (see http://BibleCorruption.com ), the scriptures were intended to begin the process of "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” (see Expansion Of Mind) that would enable the seeker/disciple to become enlightened and be taught by God -- i.e., "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me" (John 6:45 NKJ).   And it was for this reason that the historical man Jesus commanded his disciples not to be called teacher or rabbi -- i.e., "But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have One Teacher, and you are all brethren" (Matt 23:8 RSV) -- and this was commanded, because there is Only One True Teacher, and that is the True Prophet -- often referred to as the Logos, the Son of God, and the Teacher of Righteousness.    And that those lost prodigal sons who look to other men as their teacher, rabbi or leaders, will be greatly deceived and misguided, is why the disciple Peter in the Clementine Homilies declared: Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples”.  (see The Search For The True Prophet/Logos/Son Of God Within One's Own Mind And Being).     

If we pose the question as to how blind to man's higher soul and spiritual reality the linear-rational mind is?   Both the blindness and mental impairment and dysfunction is so severe, that the person who is limited to normal linear three-dimensional shadow-reasoning, is portrayed as being dead in the scriptures (see The Dead Know Nothing).    Thus, the lopsided development of the linear-rational which is brought about in our cultural educational systems by pseudo-intellectuals who only utilize and develop the linear-outward spheres of mind -- and by the very nature and purpose of instruction, totally suppress the intuitive spheres of mind -- inhibit the whole development of mind to the degree that the students become intellectually flat-lined and totally incapable of grasping higher understanding of both self, and the life the person is living.   That in their original condition prior to being corrupted by the Church (see http://BibleCorruption.com ), the scriptures which are allegorical (see An Inconvenient Truth) contained important teachings and catalysts that developed the intuitive spheres of mind -- catalysts which began the process of connecting the seeker/disciple with both the higher reality of their soul and what the original disciples called The True Prophet who was and is the One Teacher that Jesus said to seek out -- it was this enlightening of the mind of the seeker/disciple that was the very purpose of the teachings of Jesus which were originally called TheWay.    And thus, the development of the intuitive by virtue of the important teaching that were removed by the Church, and the catalysts of the allegorical scriptures, brought about the fulfillment of the original objectives portrayed in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.    

How blind to the true meaning of the scriptures and the realities of life is the linear-rational mind which is associated with the pseudo-intellectualism that is promoted by our culture and taught in our schools today?  In the subheading of Flawed Human (Linear) Reasoning in the article An Inconvenient Truth it reads that: And that human reasoning, the quasi-religious dogma of man's religions and his philosophical schools of thought, are always in error by virtue of their blindness to the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God -- which reality Paul presented in the words: "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world..." (Col 2:8 NIV).    And the degree that the seeker of Truth is to abandon and reject the dogmatic and philosophical (linear) reasoning of this world, is further presented in the words of the Apostle Peter who is quoted in the writings of his disciple Clement: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without". (see The Spiritual Disenfranchisement Of The Mind).     

If neither the true meaning of the allegorical scriptures, or the realities of life itself, can be understood using "...the understanding of our own mind" when man is dependent upon the linear-rational spheres of mind, only then can man begin to understand why the Apostle Paul warned that the believer should not depend upon human logic and reasoning "...which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world..." -- which to their own detriment the Church has ignored this warning.     What the Apostle Paul portrays as "...the basic principles of this world..." is the linear-reasoning which physicist Niels Bohr stated that “…The great extension of our experience in recent years has brought to light the insufficiency of our simple mechanical conceptions and, as a consequence, has shaken the foundation on which the customary interpretation of observation was based.” These “…mechanical conceptions” make reference to Darwin and the Theory of Evolution which is born out of the blindness of human linear reasoning and logic.   A blindness portrayed by William A. Tiller in the words: “The present scientific establishment has grown somewhat fossilized by its current world picture and is locked into a view of reality that has outlived its usefulness. It has begun to limit mankind’s growth and has so increased its sense of specialization, separateness, materiality, and mechanical computer-like functioning that it is in real danger of self-extermination” (see Science Proves Religion).   So the question becomes will mankind's rejection of the reality portrayed by the modern physicist -- as well as his abandonment with the original purpose of the Gospel teachings -- cause him to go the way of the dinosaur and bring him to the precipice where his reliance upon linear-reasoning has placed him "...in real danger of self-extermination”?   

  The Allegorical Command To Seek Out James For Whom The World Came Into Being: “The disciples said to Jesus, We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader? Jesus said to them, Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being" (Gospel Of Thomas ).  If every Christian did as Jesus commands in the foregoing, the Church would indeed be a Temple of Light that enlightens the whole world.   But because the Church has followed the error of the Jews and threw away the Key of Knowledge in their outward, literal and historical interpretations of the scriptures, they have greatly inhibited the believers from ever understanding the spiritual meaning of the Gospels.   Resulting in the fact that every Sunday when they preach from the pulpits of countless Churches, what they are preaching is a series of allegorical symbols that not only they do not understand, but because of their self-imposed state of profound spiritual ignorance, they will never, ever understand.  Further, because the translators of the scriptures continue to misrepresent what is presented in the original biblical texts, they render it virtually impossible for the vast majority of Christians to understand what is being presented and taught.  In the above teaching the believer is commanded to  seek out James -- and yet, not only did no person exist in biblical times who was named James, but the name James remains virtually meaningless in understanding what is being commanded by Jesus.  Yet, if the body of Christian believers understood what is being conveyed to them and would do as Jesus taught, the whole world would become immersed in the Spiritual Light of the Original Gospels Teachings. 

The name that is being portrayed in the Gospel teachings is Jacob -- and the reader is not being taught to seek out a man named Jacob -- but rather, when the Key of Knowledge is properly applied to the understanding of the scriptures, what is being commanded is for the believer to take on that condition of mind that is personified in the name Jacob.   But in mistranslating the name James, the translators have disconnected the reader from the importance of the name Jacob in the Torah and Old Testament.   There is nothing in the New Testament that provides an understanding of the name Jacob -- or what is personified in the name.  And to comprehend what is being conveyed in the New Testament, the reader must be able to reference  and understand the portrayal of Jacob that is presented in the Old Testament.   Therefore, while this is an ultra-important teaching by Jesus, few readers are able to even begin to understand what is been presented and taught.   But the effect of this ignorance and mistranslation that is portrayed in the name Jacob which is both timeless and essential for a seeker to comprehend, has the effect of alienating the reader from the whole of the Gospel message.   The name Jacob is so important, that Paul stated that God loved Jacob and hated his brother Esau -- i.e., “For though the twins were not yet born, and had not done anything good or bad, in order that God's purpose according to His choice might stand, not because of works, but because of Him who calls, it was said to her, The older will serve the younger. Just as it is written, Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated” (Rom 9:11-13 NAS).   And because important New Testament Gospel teachings were removed by the Church (see BibleCorruption.com ), and believers have been deprived of the connection between the teaching of Jesus in Gospel of Thomas #12 and the condition of mind personified in the name Jacob, Christians today are very much as Esau, and have been made apostates to the Light and the Kingdom.   

It is important to understand that the New Testament makes the long ignored and profound statement that mankind in his organic and "natural" condition is of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness that is incapable of comprehending both the true (spiritual) meaning of the scriptures, the higher realty of Indwelling Soul, and what Paul portrays as the Mysteries of the Kingdom, as well as the realities of the life that man is living.    And this ignored biblical fact is explored in the subheading What Difference Does It Make?   And when rightly understood, what is being taught in the twelfth (12) saying of the Gospel of Thomas, is universally imposing natural organic limitations on not only all Christians, but also all of mankind.   The answer to such profound questions as: Why is there evil in the world?   Why doesn't God communicate directly with man?   What is the meaning and purpose of Life?   The answer to these and all other such questions, can only be understood in the reality that is being presented in the twelfth saying of the Gospel of Thomas.   In fact, unless you understand and bring about the reality portrayed in the twelfth saying, it will remain impossible for you to understand any of the other sayings in this or any other Gospel or scripture.  

When read literally or historically, the command to seek out James/Jacob the Righteous who was known as the Brother of Yeshua/Jesus, makes absolutely no sense.   How can a modern believer seek out a man who lived 2000 years ago?   And when properly translated and Jacob/James is connected to the personification of Jacob in the Genesis Account, because what is being conveyed in the twelfth saying of Thomas is not at all understood, the person remains incapable of comprehending ANYTHING of a deeper important level of understanding.   And this it can correctly be stated: "THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME. 'BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN'" (Matt 15: 8-9).   Thus, and in their dogmatic ignorance, they can rightly be portrayed as Esau-Believers.  And unless the seeker/believer understands what Paul is portraying in his assertion that "natural" organic man who is at an "animal-soul" level of consciousness is incapable of comprehending anything beyond the shadow-images of this world that confuse and obstruct his advancement (see  What Difference Does It Make ), regardless of the assertion and declaration of faith and belief, such a person will be unable to comprehend the true meaning of the very Gospel teachings they affirm.     

In connecting the command to seek out Jacob the Righteous with the allegorical portrayal of Jacob in the Book of Genesis, what is being presented in the portrayal of Jacob and Esau is a portrayal of the the two natures of mankind -- i.e., the carnal that is ruled over by the lower three kingdoms of man's lower animal consciousness and nature, and the latent and innate spiritual consciousness that must be developed, expanded and made manifest in the life of the believer/seeker/disciple.   When rightly understood, the elder son Esau represents the organic mental and animal consciousness within each of us. Esau, the hairy man, typifies the animal, which is the normal level of consciousness for all of mankind in his "natural" state.  The vast majority of the human family let what is portrayed as Esau rule over their consciousness -- but in contradistinction the name Jacob means the "supplanter", and in the line of human development and unfoldment this man of nature, Esau, must be supplanted by a higher type of consciousness portrayed in the name Jacob, the supplanter.

Esau was a hunter -- he finds his pleasure in the realm and consciousness of what can be portrayed as the animal forces.  The cravings of the lower nature are in the ascendancy -- ruling over his thinking and life -- to the degree that Esau gave his birthright up to to satisfy and appease his hunger.  The "red pottage" mentioned in the allegory of the scriptures, refers to the life substance and consciousness of the body -- which throughout these writings is often portrayed as vital life-force, bio-energy -- and is the "inheritance" that the prodigal son squanders away on "riotous living" and things of no meaning.  What Paul portrays as the "natural" or organic man, is the representative reality of the undeveloped carnal man that is the starting point in all mankind's evolution.  The natural man is not wise.  Esau was a hunter, and he loved carnal pursuits and the fulfillment of his physical appetites -- while ignoring Spirit.   He was not seeking development through the deepening and expansion of his higher resources of mind. 

The "ladder" which is portrayed as the proverbial Jacob's Ladder, represents step-by-step development of the mind to receive and comprehend higher realizations of Essential Truth.  And important reference to the Ladder of Expanded Consciousness out of the Esau or "animal-soul" level of mind and being has been preserved in the Gospel of the Nazirenes where it states: "God gives you all truth, as a ladder with many steps, for the salvation and perfection of the soul, and the truth which seems today, you will abandon for the higher truth tomorrow. Press toward perfection."    The Ladder of Higher Mind and Consciousness that supplants that which is portrayed as Esau or the "animal-soul" level of mind and being, must be brought about one level of higher truth at a time -- i.e., “To whom will he teach knowledge, and to whom will he explain the message? Those who are weaned from the milk, those taken from the breast?  For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little” (Isa 28:9-10).  

The process of Transformation is portrayed as climbing a Ladder, because in order to even begin to grasp the next rung on the ladder, the person must let go and abandon the previous level -- i.e., "...and the truth which seems today, you will abandon for the higher truth tomorrow" -- and because the vast majority of people cling to their dogmatic "milk", and are unable to let go and advance onward, often these necessary rungs can only be climbed over the course of many lifetimes of the Soul.    When Paul portrays the elementary teachings as the "milk" for "babes in Christ" that was designed for entry-level believers -- i.e., "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ) -- which means that the great body of faith-based believers who cling to the elementary "milk" of the Gospel, can't even begin to fulfill the very higher purpose and objective of the Gospel teachings which are to supplant the animal-consciousness of Esau with the higher mature spiritual consciousness of Jacob which is beyond the comprehension of the organic "natural" mind of man.  And because they cling to the "milk" for immature "babes", they  totally inhibit their spiritual development -- rendering their lives spiritually impotent and flat-lined.

In the account of Jacob's Ladder, there are angels personified as ascending and descending up and down the Ladder.   And this exchange of thoughts (angels) between the lower and upper mind is the embodiment of the commandment to seek no other teacher than the Indwelling Logos/Son of God (see The True Prophet).   And this is why in the earliest Christian writings, seeking a teacher external to one's self, was considered a sin that defiled the required Wedding Garment that was necessary to gain entrance to the Kingdom (see Baptism As A Divine Marriage).  And this is why James 1:3 proclaims: "Be not many of you teachers, my brethren, knowing that we shall receive heavier judgment".  Why?   Because unless the alleged teacher has themselves brought about the transformation of their lower nature and climbed all the rungs of Jacob's Ladder, they will convey pseudo-knowledge and man-made dogma to those who they instruct. 

In his writings, Peter warned that anyone who seeks out any other teacher (see Baptism As A Divine Marriage) of this world instead of the Indwelling Logos, has in effect defiled the "wedding garment", and remains totally alienated from the true spiritual meaning of the scriptures.   Resulting in the fact that all the commentaries, dogmatic teachings, creeds and doctrines associated with the Christian Church which all promote the "milk" of the Gospel, do more to alienate the believer from the Kingdom and the Truth, than to in any measure assist them.   And this is why Peter explains in the Homilies of his disciple Clement that: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".   What this means is that the scriptures and Gospels cannot be comprehended when read from a human perspective (see Truth Cannot Exist In This World) -- and the sincere Christian seeker is prohibited from taking teachings and wisdom from outside of their own mind, and attempting to apply what is portrayed as "...a foreign and extraneous sense", and attempt to apply these manmade teachings to the scriptures.   Only those thoughts, impressions, teachings which span the rungs of Jacob's Ladder and originate with the Inner True Prophet, are acceptable from an original Gospel perspective.  Which means that all the biblical commentaries, all the catechisms and official church teachings and doctrines, all inhibit the believers necessary development, and therefore alienate the believer from the Truth and the Kingdom.

In order to even begin to be taught by the Indwelling Logos -- and be prepared to receive the Divine Manna which is portrayed in the above as the "thoughts" that transverse the connection through Jacob's Ladder between the lower and higher mind -- the twelve spheres, and especially the Intuitive spheres of mind -- must begin to develop in the manner that in the Genesis account, Jacob is personified as having twelve sons, and Jesus had twelve disciples -- all representing the twelve spheres of mind.   Quoting a crucial paragraph from The UnWanted Truth That Makes Men Free:

Why can someone who is educated in our traditionally cultural manner be portrayed as being mentally flat-lined and spiritually impotent?   Because when the pattern of mind is rightly understood, it is divided across the spectrum of four mental-trinities which comprise the mind as patterned in the diagram of the Tree of Life -- with the Feminine Intuitive Column being limited by the three Linear-Male Spheres which are paradoxical opposites within the Divine Pattern of Mind and Being -- and this reality of Mind is demonstrated in saying 22 of the Gospel of Thomas which reads: Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom."  This Original Teaching that was suppressed by the Gentile Church which portrayed itself as Orthodox, can only be understood within the spectrum of the pattern of the Tree of Life -- and therefore, it has little to no meaning to modern man.  And unless each person brings the reality portrayed in this teaching about in their own Mind and Being, they will remain mentally flat-lined and spiritually impotent -- incapable of advancing beyond the level of what the Apostle Paul portrayed as that of an "animal-soul" level of comprehension (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature).   That the foregoing teaching which is contained in the Gospel of Thomas was important to the first century followers of Jesus, is demonstrate in  The Second Epistle of Clement where this ultra-important teaching that was removed from the Gospels of modern Christians use, is quoted as stating: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.   What Clement is stating in accord with the Original teachings is that when the seeker/believer brings this condition about within their own Mind and Being, that the predicted and expected Kingdom will come within them as promised -- as stated in Jesus' teachings on the Key of Knowledge (see The Third Fatal Mistake - Not Proving The Truth).

The bottom line is that each seeker must become what is portrayed in the name Jacob by supplanting Esau. Only then can the twelve spheres of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life, begin to emerge.  More important is the fact that the Intuitive spheres of mind must begin to develop and become equal with the opposite Linear spheres of mind in the outer columns of the pattern of the Tree of Life -- with the outer columns being the personification of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil -- only when these outer male and female columns are brought together in the Center, can the merger begin to take place between the lower nature as personified in Esau and the lower Earthly Kingdom, be merged with the upper spiritual nature personified as Jacob -- with the result being that the seeker/disciple begins to experience what is personified as the End Times or Armageddon within their own mind and being -- initiating the next stage of birth and the manifesting of the Kingdom within the mind of the seeker.  By overcoming the Laws (allegorically portrayed as the angel with whom Jacob has to wrestle), the seeker becomes what is embodied in the name Israel. The twelve spheres must then be converted from tribes -- i.e., a divided multitude of fragmented consciousness (see The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind), into Singular Disciples as portrayed in the Gospels. And with the Anointing of the mind through the baptism in the Jordan, can the seeker become At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Mind of God.  And with respect to the Gospel of Thomas saying 12, it was for this purpose for "...whose sake heaven and earth came into being."
   The "Good Ground": As demonstrated in the foregoing, without change, refinement and the acquisition of essential spiritual knowledge which spawns development beyond what Paul portrays as the organic "animal-soul" level of consciousness, it will remain impossible to comprehend the true meaning of the Gospel, the higher realty of the Soul, or the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God.   If, as most Christians do, ignore what is stated in the scriptures in the above, and the person skips over what is presented with respect to the inability of organic man to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the scriptures, then their practice of religion will be an exercise in futility.   And while this long ignored reality is clearly presented in the above, it is also presented as a true warning in the parable of the Sower And The Seed wherein Jesus warns: “Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13 KJV).   Meaning that if you fail to understand this parable and put it into daily practice in your every-day life, then it will be impossible for you to understand any aspect of the scriptures.

The Living Word must be planted in the body and mindset of a disciple who is portrayed as the good ground in order to grow.   Every teaching and concept that Jesus spoke must be envisioned as an essential truth that sprang forth from the biblical foundation that existed at the beginning of our Common Era.   In the same way that a seedling cannot exist apart from the ground within which it is planted, the Bible itself warns us that the purity of the Word cannot flourish within any culture or manner of thinking we attempt to transplant it into.   Unless the word that is preached to you is planted and nurtured within the “good ground” and the same biblical foundation as that which Jesus revealed it from, then it cannot be the genuine Word of God.

The spiritual concepts that are taught in this parable are of such an exalted magnitude, that they should be seen as the very starting place for all those who desire to know anything of any genuine import.   In order to live a life of genuine substance, the life of every child should be molded in accordance with the concepts revealed in this parable -- a parable that is so important to those in pursuit of all Knowledge, both secular and religious, that Jesus warned the people: “And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13 KJV).   And to put this great biblical truth in the more modern language of the New Living Translation: “But if you can't understand this story, how will you understand all the others I am going to tell?”

You can’t!   If you fail to understand the meaning of this parable, then you can never comprehend a single truth of any great importance.   Moreover, I confirm this well defined biblical statement with respect to all of man’s endeavors in his quest to know himself and his true role in the vision of Creation.   It makes no difference if you are a man of faith, science, or philosophy, unless you understand the meaning of this parable in relation to your own life, then you can never know anything of a genuine value and significance.  

We are a people of very limited perception who dwell in a confusing world  -- i.e., a world portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- and a shadow-world of illusions.   Any student of history must conclude that the most intelligent men throughout all ages have continually been wrong in their ideas pertaining to every aspect of life.   Both the world of science and religion in our own time are as little ships afloat on a sea of confusion.   The truly intelligent person must ask why?   Why has the mind of man dwelled in the darkness of this world for so long?   If the universe is indeed the work of a Supreme Being, then it is reasonable to ask where the answer to man’s great dilemma lies?

There is of course many who will say that the Gospel message was universal, and was put forth for all mankind to read, believe, and affirm their faith!   Many would like to believe this, but the scriptures themselves clearly reveal to us that it is the exact opposite which is true.   When Jesus taught the people, he spoke to the multitudes by parables, and only his disciples were instructed in a plain and straightforward manner.   What this means is that whoever listened to him speak and teach, heard stories about life that each hearer interpreted in accordance with their own understanding.   Fundamentally, then, what each person heard was often not a great revelation of truth -- but rather, very much within the limitations of their own thinking and patterns of belief.  

When Jesus was questioned as to why he taught in this manner, he very clearly said: “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12 NIV).   In view of the fact that what Jesus called the “secrets of the Kingdom of God” was not taught to the multitude of people who listened to him speak, the question that every believer today must ask is: Why would Jesus not speak plainly to everyone who would listen?

To begin, we must ask ourselves what a parable is?   Based upon church dogma, some people today erroneously believe that a parable makes a teaching more plain and easier to understand.   In demonstration of this misconception, in some modern Bible translations such as that used by the Jehovah's Witnesses, the word parable is rendered illustration.   Why?   Because this is what these religious organizations want to believe -- i.e., it affirms the validity of their quasi-Darwinist manner of thinking -- and it is beyond their comprehension to understand why Jesus would reveal to one group of people a different revelation than another group of people.    

The Bible itself declares this modern-day common assumption with respect to the parables to be false, and clearly states that just the opposite is true.   In explanation of the above words of Jesus, the Wycliffe Commentary writes that: “…the initiate was instructed in the esoteric teaching of the cult, which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”  

In our present-day preaching of the gospel, there is no room for the concept of an “initiate”!   Yet, we continue to alienate ourselves from a higher perception of the Word, so long as we fail to acknowledge that Jesus was not all-inclusive, and it was his disciples who were the initiates into what the Bible states are the Secrets of the Kingdom of God.   The key to understanding what is actually being portrayed in the scriptures, is when we open our eyes to what the Bible actually states, and we permit ourselves to become cognizant of the great truth that “spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual”.   Dogs, swine, complacent believers, unbelievers, can never understand the true meaning of the parables or the spiritual essence of the Gospel!   And if we ask, what this rather astute observation in the Wycliffe Commentary means to us today?   In Jesus’ own words what he plainly said was a truth that has its parallels in every aspect of our lives: The Sacred Knowledge of the Kingdom did not belong to everyone -- but rather, it belonged only to those who were found worthy to hear the higher revelations of truth.   The problem that inhibits our ability to fully understand this well-defined biblical Truth, is seen in the continual assertion that the worthiness of each person to hear these mysteries taught only to the initiates, was predetermined prior to their even being born -- which is a revelation that is simply beyond our doctrinal comprehension in our present time.  

The idea that only a small group of people would be taught the Mysteries of God -- and that they were chosen to hear these Mysteries at a time before they were even born -- is so troubling to the people of the simple faith, that the majority of modern-day Christians simply choose to ignore this paramount biblical doctrine.   They therefore not only close their eyes and hearts to the message of the Bible they claim to champion, but they sever themselves from the revelation of the indwelling Word they continually petition with their lips to bestow upon them.   

Very clearly, the concept simply makes no reasonable sense to their manner of thinking.   In our desire to see Jesus as the savior of all people, we are unable to accept what the Bible openly proclaims -- i.e., that Jesus came to call the few, and the calling of these few was predetermined before they were even born into that life.   In view of what the Bible actually states, our present-day belief that Jesus preached an all-inclusive doctrine is from a biblical perspective, a defective and flawed doctrine.   Moreover, those who read the Bible and continue to tell people otherwise, are simply lying to the flock of believers in order further the cause of traditional church doctrines, and ultimately maintain control over the congregations.

What each person must decide is in fact that same exact question that was set before the Sadducees and Pharisees when Jesus physically walked this earth -- i.e., whether you desire truth or tradition!   How important is this knowledge of predestination to our own personal salvation?   It is impossible for us to walk in The Way, and not understand why only a chosen few were taught the Mysteries of God, while the majority of listeners were given what the Apostle Paul calls the milk of the gospel.   It is impossible for us to be born again, and to be genuine followers of the Son of God, unless we understand and embrace this great spiritual fact.   In recognition of this indisputable biblical revelation, if we are to become serious followers of the Christ, we must first come to the realization that what we presently possess in the form of the modern Gospel message, is nothing more than what was given to the multitudes of the people at the time that Jesus preached the Word of God.  

  The Counterfeit Church Foundation - Secularized Religious Dogma: The Spiritual Core of Christianity remains virtually unknown today, because of direct government intrusion into the affairs of the Church with respect to acceptable doctrines of belief.   In the same way that in China only those Churches which are approved by the government are permitted, so too was the Church that came into being in the fourth century under the direct control of the Roman Emperors.   That the segment of the Church which called itself Orthodox, was a mere puppet of Pagan Rome and had little to nothing in common with the original teachings and objectives of Jesus and TheWay, should come as no surprise to the modern believer in view of the many statements of biblical scholars such as A. Powell Davies who attempted to warn the Christian world that discoveries such as the Dead Sea Scrolls had confirmed what they had suspected and believed all along -- i.e., that the Emperor Constantine and the Pagan Church of Rome created a religion of blind faith and belief where he wrote that: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been”(quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).   Thus, this long ignored statement prompts us to ask: Why didn't the biblical scholars understand the true origin of Christianity prior to the discovery and examination of the Dead Sea Scrolls?   To answer this question we must consult the findings of Prof. Elaine Pagles who correctly writes: “It is the winners who write history - their way. No wonder, then, that the viewpoint of the successful majority has dominated all traditional accounts of the origin of Christianity… It suggests that these religious debates - questions of the nature of God, or of Christ - simultaneously bear social and political implications that are crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion. In simplest terms, ideas which bear implications contrary to that development come to be labeled as heresy; ideas which implicitly support it become orthodox” (see Pagles, The Gnostic Gospels).    In not learning the lessons of history, modern believers have overlooked the fact that when despots rule, they not only annihilate all opposition -- but they "...write history - their way" -- and they corrupt and burn whatever writings stand in opposition to their supremacy and rule.   Which means that those doctrines of belief that are today seen as orthodox and promoted by the modern-day Church as being authentic, are themselves drawn from the side of "...political implications that [were] crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion" under the direct control of Pagan Rome.   In the case of the Christian Church beginning in the fourth century, to disagree with the doctrines affirmed by the Emperor Constantine, carried with it the sentence of death.   Thus, Edward Gibbon writes in the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire: ”Constantine easily believed that the heretics, who presumed to dispute his opinions or to oppose his commands, were guilty of the most absurd and criminal obstinacy... Not a moment was lost in excluding the ministers and teachers of the separated congregations from any share of the rewards and immunities which the emperor had so liberally bestowed on the orthodox clergy. But as the sectaries might still exist under the cloud of royal disgrace, the conquest of the East was immediately followed by an edict which announced their total destruction”.    Thus, in the same way that whoever did not embrace the religion of the emperor met with the sentence of death, whatever scriptures did not conform to the approved version, was immediately destroyed (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).  

In a recent Christianity Today interview with Brian Mclaren where he pointed out that "One of the problems is that the average Christian in the average church who listens to the average Christian broadcasting has such an oversimplified understanding of both the Bible and of church history - it would be deeply disturbing for them to really learn about church history" -- what Brian Mclaren is actually stating is that the vast majority of Christian believers would be "deeply disturbed" to be confronted by the historical fact that the doctrines and dogma of the Church -- as well as what teachings in the Bible were correct -- was determined by the Emperor Constantine and the bishops, priests and scribes of his Church.  But the spiritual safeguard that was foreseen by the authors of the scriptures, is seen in the reality that they fully understood both the three-dimensional limitations of this world -- and they composed the scriptures so as to preserve and conceal the inner spiritual meaning that can only be revealed to sincere seekers and disciples of TheWay who seek Truth over man-made dogma -- and who understand the proper application of the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge (see KeyOfKnowlege.org ) that must be holographically turned within one's own mind and being.   In accord with the recent findings of the modern physicist who now states that the images which we perceive with our physical senses is not at all presenting to us the whole picture -- and that “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space.   The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe” (see above) -- the authors of the scriptures knew this fact of reality in this shadow-world which the Gospels portray as the Far Country, and they therefore crafted their sacred writings for those who possessed what Jesus portrayed as the "eyes to see" -- a spiritual meaning that those who has yet to overcome the organic limitations of their physical mind, remained blind to even the existence of.     

   Nothing Hidden Or Concealed: When rightly understood, there is absolutely nothing hidden from the eyes of man -- no secret knowledge -- only the fact that in a holographic reality, you can only perceive the vibratory-frequency that your perceptive-senses correspond to.   And this is true not only with respect to your perceptive-senses, but also your perceptive-understanding.   And by Divine Design, only those who have developed a high degree of Wholeness, are able to perceive beyond the holographic barrier of this realm.    As Jesus stated: "He that is Whole, need not a physician" (Matt 9:12).  So if we pose the question: What is inhibiting a point of perception within a sub-holographic reality from being able to perceive what lies beyond the limits of that sub-reality?   The answer is The Laws (of Creation).   And whether these Natural Laws are interpreted by the Mystic and Visionary who composed our scriptures, or the modern physicists who portrays what man sees as a "blemish" caused by intersecting forces in an unseen Ætheric Field, there is an important reason why these limitations are placed upon mankind. 

If you provided schoolchildren cheat sheets for all the tests they would be required to take, then the students would make no effort at investigating and exploring the nature and reality of the answers to the questions on the test.   Their answers which would be drawn from the cheat sheets, would be representative of empty rhetoric that the student lacks any real understanding of.   Resulting in the reality that the students would not develop their minds and thinking to the degree where they would be able to do critical analysis and deductive-reasoning that is crucial to employment in our modern culture.   By design, each level of man's holographic reality is intended to evolve the person through the stages of maturity that is necessary to understand and function at the next higher level of maturity.   And it is the Natural Laws that evolve us one level at a time, until the Ultimate Purpose of Creation can be fulfilled within us.   If we could see the Source in what both the Mystic and physicist portrays as the UnSeen, then we would possess the ultimate cheat-sheet -- and we would not only fail to evolve and mature, but we would undermine the very purpose and objective of the life we are presently living.  

   Jesus The Professor: When correctly understood, the Gospel account of Jesus can just as rightly be portrayed as the curriculum being taught by a university professor -- i.e., Jesus the Law Professor, the Science Professor, the Philosophy Professor, the Psychology Professor -- as from a spiritual leader and guide.   Why?   Because everything that we think, do and say invokes Natural Laws -- and it is these Natural Laws that orchestrate our lives and our individual futures.   The bottom line is that everything in this world is moved by the Natural Laws which control every aspect of the lives we live.   After all, Jesus stated that not even a sparrow can fall to the earth apart from the Will of God -- and God interacts and moves the hearts and minds of all mankind indirectly through the Natural Laws of Creation.  To be ignorant of these Natural Laws, is to be a victim of our own ignorance.   What is often portrayed as American Exceptionalism is very much the result of the Natural Laws that were understood and invoked by the framers of the American Constitution (see ThomasPaineRedux.com ). 

What is the source of intellectual instruction?  It makes no difference if the instructor is in an upper room of a religious group, or in front of a classroom of students who desire to perceive and observe the Source in the Ætheric Field that has been noted by the physicists in the scientific community  (see Science - Religion - The Ætheric Field Mind).   The requirements for both groups who seek this essential knowledge of the Source which has been equally noted by physicist-scholars and mystics alike, is exactly the same.   Modern physicists and mystics alike have attested to the fact that what we see and observe with our physical senses is a type of projected image -- almost an incomplete shadow-image -- of an unseen Source.   Therefore, if the objective is to perceive the Source in the unseen of what we perceive with our physical senses -- and our perceptive limitations are the results of the limitations imposed upon us by the Natural Laws of Creation -- then both groups must be able to fulfill the requirements of the Laws, before they would be able to pass the test of the Laws, and evolve to the next level that would permit them to perceive a greater reality of the Source.    In the same way that a person can't declare themselves to be a mystic with their words, and suddenly be able to perceive the Source of the images we see, neither can a physicist who is also seeking to perceive the Source.   Thus, the requirements are exactly the same with respect to the Natural Laws that inhibit mankind from perceiving the Source of what we see in this world.  

That a person declares themselves to be a student of science and physics, does not provide them the ability to perceive the reality of the Ætheric Field that is the unseen Source of what man perceives with his physical senses (see Science - Religion - The Ætheric Field Mind).   In like manner, that a seeker declares themselves to be a Christian, does not in any manner provide them the ability to see the Source of what the physicist has only recently discovered.   Yet, not only could the historical man Jesus perceive the Source, he had the ability to move into the Source -- and he taught his disciples how to accomplish everything that he could do.    The fact that the religious world does not know this today, is largely due to the corruption of the scriptures (see BibleCorruption.com ).   And because the original disciples and followers of Jesus had the ability to perceive the unseen that is the Source of what we see, the religious and secular authorities in their time-frame hunted them down and murdered them.   And over the course of the centuries since, anyone who actually followed Jesus' instructions and succeed in developing these innate abilities, were very quickly silenced as heretics by religious and secular authorities alike.    As an example: Giordano Bruno attempted to teach others in the universities of his day what they must do to begin to perceive in the unseen Source of what we see, and he was put on trial for heresy, and burnt at the stake (see Spiritual Religion).   For over a thousand years the secular religion of Pagan Rome which worshiped the Mithraic-Christ reigned supreme -- and, as stated in the Jesuit Oath, those who disagreed with their dogma were exterminated:  "Go ye, then, into all the world and take possession of all lands in the name of the Pope.  He who will not accept him as the Vicar of Jesus and his Vice-regent on earth, let him be accursed and exterminated" (Oath of the Jesuit Order).   That the Spiritual Christians were hunted down as heretics, is easily proven.  

The perceptive limitations imposed upon mankind are a matter of Natural Law.   What this means is that every person is equally born blind, to what the modern physicist and mystic of the past portray as the Source in the Ætheric Field.   Why?   Because the Laws are imposed equally upon all of mankind, and there exists a universal means to overcome these Laws, which enables the person to perceive both the Source in the Ætheric Field, and the shadow-images that are projected into this world.   But herein lies the Universal dilemma -- i.e., this more enlightened and evolved reality portrayed in the Gospel teaching can only be comprehended by those who fulfill the Laws and attain the necessary manifestation of Wholeness.   But isn't this also the primary objective of our colleges and universities?   Aren't they working to raise the consciousness of their students, evolve their thinking, and open the door to a higher state of mental enlightenment?   And herein, also, lies the universal dilemma: True mental enlightenment can only be achieved by prevailing over those conditions which subject man to ignorance -- and the condition of ignorance that plagues mankind, is a matter of Natural Law that must be overcome by the individual in search of Higher Truth.  An interesting observation was made by astrophysicist Robert Jastrow, who was the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies who wrote in his book, God and the Astronomers, that “The scientist has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”   There is only one way to scale the mountains of ignorance, and that is to prevail over the Natural Laws that inhibit man from perceiving the Source of what he sees in this world.    The historical man Jesus possessed this knowledge of the Natural Laws -- he conveyed this knowledge to his inner core of disciples and followers -- but the Gentile Church threw it away, and even outlawed this body of essential knowledge.   While only now has science emerged out of the Dark Ages to the degree where they once again can use this body of (esoteric) knowledge, the Church remains in the dungeon of abject ignorance. 

When rightly understood, the process of fulfilling the Laws can be portrayed as passing the tests that advance us to the next level of instruction.   The seeker/disciple who has ardently embraced the Gospel teachings and incorporated these important concepts into their everyday life, are able to perceive the "unseen" that organic man is blind to -- i.e., "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Cor 4:18 KJV).   The very fact that Paul is conveying to the Congregation of Christians that they should seek to see and perceive the unseen, means that they have the innate potential to perceive what organic man is blind to.   And this same reality is apparent in Jesus' statement in the Gospel of Thomas: "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you...".   That man's organic physical vision is incomplete and fails to comprehend the meaning of the three-dimensional allegorical images which have been portrayed as shadow-images cast upon the cave-walls of this, the Far Country, is presented in the words: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" (Prov 14:12).  What you see with your physical senses when not understood as an allegorical shadow-image, will always cause you to embrace totally false assumptions and man-made doctrines of belief.  Which is why the Epistle of Peter To James declares that if the esoteric body of Jesus' teaching was to become lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error"!!!   Which is why, when Jesus was asked, why he only spoke in parables when teaching the multitudes who were portrayed as being "without" (in the outer darkness), Jesus replied that: "Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand..." (Mark 4:11-12).   Why did they  "...see, and not perceive; and ...hear, and not understand..."?   Because of the three-dimensional limitations of man's physical organic senses and comprehension.    

   Mental Womb - Subsequent Soul-Birth: From a holographic perspective of reality, when we emerged from our mother's physical womb, it was to enter the next phase of birth in a type of womb that is necessary for the proper development of the mind -- with the objective of evolving through the stages of development permitting us to bring about and experience the next subsequent stage of birth.   In the Gospel of John when Jesus was asked about entering the Kingdom, Jesus stated to Nicodemus: You must bring about the next stage of birth -- i.e., Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3).   But what exactly was Jesus making reference to?    Is the birth process that of repeating words in what is commonly portrayed as the Christian prayer accepting Jesus as the believers personal lord and savior?   The Sinners Prayer?    If the process of second-birth was brought about by repeating the words of a prayer, then the disciple never would have stated: "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22 NKJ).  

While Christians often portray Armageddon as something to be feared, in the scriptures there is another element to the theological equation that is rarely ever mentioned or discussed.  This can be demonstrated by simply examining how we translate Matthew 24:8, where the King James Bible states that Armageddon is the "…beginning of sorrows"; the New Living Translation states it is "…the beginning of the horrors to come"; with the correct and little used interpretation by those who stand on our street corners proclaiming that we should repent being found in the Revised Standard Version where it reads that "…all this is but the beginning of the birth-pangs".   

When the Jews of a carnal mindset asked Jesus when the expected kingdom would come, to their own demise he spoke of a great truth that has been continually ignored by the dooms-day prophets and the people of the simple faith who were influenced by the manmade doctrines of the Church of Rome.  Jesus said that the kingdom will never come upon the earth in the manner that carnal men predict, because it is "inside of you" (Lk 17:20-21). That the disciples of the Lord experienced these "pangs of birth" when they were themselves born into the kingdom, can be seen in the words of Peter at Pentecost when he said: "Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. These men are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord’" (Acts 2:14-21 NIV).  What was being portrayed was the reality of the allegorical symbolism of Armageddon or End Times coming about within the mind and being of the disciples.  Because we exist in an embryonic and incomplete state, the purpose of the teachings of TheWay is to first awaken a person to their indwelling soul and spiritual natures, and then develop their true essence and maturity so as to enable the person to be born into the Kingdom. Throughout the scriptures it is continually suggested that carnal man who is portrayed as the lost prodigal son, dwells in a kind of stupor -- hypnotized by the forms and sensual realities of this world. Some places in the Bible represent this condition as sleeping, others as death -- i.e., "Another disciple said to him, Lord, first let me go and bury my father. But Jesus told him, Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead" (Matt 8:21-22 NIV).

One only has to open the pages of the Bible to see that the whole of the New Testament teachings is concerned with ethics, morality, and the manner in which each of us treats our brothers and sisters. The requirement is that we must be perfect, as our Heavenly Father is perfect (Mt 5:48). This state of perfection is referred to as the fulfillment of the Royal Law of God, and is measured in our forgiveness, acceptance and love of our fellow man. From a New Covenant perspective, whatever is divisive, and not in accord with the Royal Law, is of this world, and is an obstacle to our birth into the Kingdom.  It is from this perspective that the requirement in the Book of the Revelation is set before us in the words: "Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful" (Rev 21:27 NIV).  This same truth was expressed by Isaiah where it is written: "And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that Way; wicked fools will not go about on it" (Isa 35:8 NIV). And this same truth is expressed in the words of Yeshua/Jesus when he warned: "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NIV). The "narrow gate" that Yeshua speaks that we must open in order for us to be born into the Kingdom, has its parallels in the birth canal that serves as the gate that each of us has emerged through when we physically entered into this present world.  That the next stage of birth has its similarities, is merely the result that all realities are designed in accordance with the same Divine Pattern of Creation.

What is truly important for us to see in these solemn words spoken by the Lord, is that only those who "enter through the narrow gate" will enter into Life -- i.e., it is not those who believe, but those who follow in the footsteps who are the Genuine Christians.  In order to enter into the Kingdom, the disciple must be bathed in the healing waters of consecration that cleanses them of all defilements of this world.   Therefore, the people who embrace the culture and thinking of this world, even when they call themselves Christian, are those who walk the "broad… road that leads to destruction". What Yeshua warns us is that we cannot walk two paths -- it is either the one or the other -- and philosophical Christians will neither go to Heaven, to Glory, or inherit eternal life -- without entering through the narrow gate that is the entrance to the Kingdom.   Moreover, if this is not accomplished while we are alive in the physical body in which we presently dwell, then we will have failed.

The Bible continually warns us that the path or the second birth and entrance into the Kingdom is not easy.   The strife of the inner war within ourselves as embodied in the symbols of Armageddon is seen in the words: "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22 NKJ). Thus, in the same way that a woman travails in labor to bring a child into this world, we must ourselves endure the "…many tribulations" of spiritual labor to be born into the Kingdom of God.   Since the Kingdom is within us, and Armageddon is therefore not an historical event -- but more factually, a spiritual event in the life of the disciple in search of Truth -- we must then totally re-evaluate everything we think we know about both the Gospel Message, and the life we are presently living.   In fully comprehending these biblical statements in relation to the whole purpose of the teachings of The Way, let us again examine the definitive statement which conveys to us the very essence of the Gospel -- and especially the Revelation of John: "Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie" (Rev 22:14-15 NKJ).

If the text of the Revelation represented the end of the world, as is commonly believed by the majority of Christians today, then we must pose the question: Why are those who remain outside the city portrayed as "dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie"? Armageddon, then, indicates the disciples personal tribulation described as the "pangs of birth", as he endeavors to overcome his own lower carnal nature through the crucifixion of what is symbolized by the flesh, in order that he can possess the Knowledge of the fruit of the Tree of Life, transcend the natural barriers of this world, and "enter through the gates into the city".

The door to the Kingdom within can only be entered while a person is still physically alive in the body.   Unless you can find the "narrow gate", you cannot enter into heaven or go to glory when you physically die.   Throughout the New Testament there is many references to believers standing there -- at that time-frame -- who would not die without seeing the Kingdom come: "Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom" (Matt 16:28 NKJ).   These words make reference to the inner "narrow gate" opening within the genuine disciple of TheWay, and they being permitted into the Kingdom.    This is further stated in the recently discovered Gospel of Philip which reads: "Those who say that first they shall die and (then) they shall arise are confused. If they do not first receive the resurrection (while) they live, they will not receive anything (when) they die"  

In the same way that physical birth requires the merging and development of the male and female genetic essence in the womb, the next stage of birth requires the merging of the male and female paradoxical opposite spheres of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ) within you -- as stated in the Gospel of Thomas saying 22 (see Saying 22): They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?" Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female ...then will you enter the kingdom."   In the same way that an embryo which is the merging of male and female essence, must evolve through the stages of embryo, fetus, infant and eventually to maturity, the third-force balance of the male/female duality within your own mind must evolve to maturity -- bringing about the necessary Wholeness that permits the next stage of birth.   One of the problems is that man is a complex being -- with the Tree of Life (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ) which is patterned in the image on the right, being a representation and pattern of your own mind.   Which means that the pattern of your own mind is the manifestation of four (4) trinities -- comprised of four (4) male/female paradoxical opposites which comprise the Tree of Duality (aka Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil) -- with the essence of the Tree of Life being the four third-force balance spheres where the duality of the opposites must be brought together and evolved to maturity.  The process of birth requires Wholeness -- a term not understood that is used throughout the Gospels.   In the same way that the Doctrine of the Trinity is portrayed as Mother/Father God and the Third-Force balance/offspring portrayed as the Logos, all of Creation is a manifestation of the Divine Pattern that is holographically imprinted into every aspect of Creation.  Wholeness, from the perspective of man that brings about the next stage of birth -- thereby permitting the person we are in this world to be At-One with our higher Soul-Self (see http://SoulSelf.org ) -- is achieved when the third-force balance of the four trinities within our own mind and being have achieved a condition of fullness -- and this fullness enables the next stage of birth to be brought about.   In the Gospel of Thomas (GofT) saying 22 this reality is portrayed in the question: They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"   With respect to these four trinities and their respective third-force balance-spheres that comprise the Essence of the Tree of Life, they can be portrayed as the perfect balance of what is often spoken of as Earth, Water, Fire and Air -- which when in the condition of evolved balance and wholeness, is portrayed as the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed.  And the references to receiving the Kingdom as a child in the four Gospels, is a corruption of this reality where you must evolve the third-force balance within the four trinities of your own mind, and achieve the next stage of birth -- which birth we often portray as soul-birth -- in that, this next stage of birth enables you to become At-One with your higher Soul-Self which is your True Self that you are an expression of.   After all, as stated that a House Divided cannot stand.   After achieving the next stage of birth which we portray as Soul-Birth, there are still two additional stages of birth which can be portrayed as Spiritual-Birth, and the final stage of birth which is allegorically portrayed in the crucifixion where one is At-One with God in the Totality of their Being -- thus, reuniting the divided realities of Adam and Eve on all levels within you, permitting a return to what is portrayed as the Garden of Eden (see http://GateOfEden.com ).   Quoting from The Pattern Of Mind And Being:

After eating the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil), the statement was made in the allegorical account of Genesis: "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever" (Gen 3:22-23).   Thus, the objective of life is to become nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life -- i.e., "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).   And respecting the Tree of Life it is written: "Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" (Rev 22:1-2).   With the final statement pertaining to the eating of the fruit of the Tree of Life in order to gain entrance to what is often portrayed as Spiritual Jerusalem in the words: "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" (Rev 22:14).  

Only by eating the fruit of the Tree of Life -- being nourished by the Mental Impressions thereof -- can the next stage of soul-birth be brought about, and only then can man achieve the necessary Wholeness to become At-One with his higher soul-self -- and ultimately when Spiritual Birth can then be achieved, becoming At-One with the Indwelling Logos. in the manner that the historical man Jesus did   And only by travailing in TheWay and permitting these subsequent stages of birth to be brought about within your own mind and being, can the journey of the soul be fulfilled and the seeker/disciple enter the Kingdom that Jesus taught is within us (see Luke 17:20-21).

In the same way that in an educational system we progress one level at a time -- in environments appropriate for the type of instruction at that level of education (pre-school, elementary, middle, high school, college and university) -- what is true on the physical level, is also true on each subsequent level of the soul evolving to maturity -- and this same level upon level is therefore also true with respect to our own development.   A pre-school student does not have access to the higher levels of instruction -- and neither does man in his organic condition of mind, have the same perceptive insight as those who have evolved and matured beyond the lower levels of organic consciousness.   And while the foregoing example of development is rather simple to understand, it is the means by which mankind develops, advances and matures, that is far more difficult to comprehend.   

The historical man Jesus could understand what organic man cannot, because his level of advancement and attainment enabled him to perceive what organic man is blind to.  His most immediate disciples acknowledged that Jesus could see and understand what others could not, because he was a true holy man who fulfilled the Law within himself -- i.e., within his own mind and being.   Nothing was, or is hidden -- and what each person is able to understand, is directly contingent upon their level of maturity and perception.   In the same way, the disciples of Jesus could perceive what the Jews and multitudes were blind to, because of their own level of spiritual advancement.   In the same way that the perception and understanding of an elementary school student is not the same as those in a more advanced grade, neither is the perception and understanding of organic man the same as the more advanced souls who have matured beyond organic limitations.  

Paul openly warned the baptized believers who he had himself instructed at Corinth, that until they undergo the necessary process of spiritual transformation, that their natural organic mind will be incapable of understanding the true meaning of the Gospel (see Mystery), and they will look upon the Mysteries of God as "foolishness" -- i.e., “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).   And he warned these baptized and confirmed Christians of whom it was said that they had received all the gifts and testimony of the Gospel of Christ, that their untransformed mind was yet too carnal to comprehend and begin to grasp the necessary higher realities of soul and spirit -- i.e., “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to carnal [men of flesh], as to babes in Christ (1 Cor 3:1).   Further explaining that what is known as the testimony of Jesus Christ and him crucified is the "milk" of the Gospel -- meant for entry-level believers who have only begun their journey in TheWay -- i.e., Paul warns: "...I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:2-3).   The baptized believers who Paul personally taught could not perceive or understand beyond an organic (carnal) level of comprehension, because what Paul portrayed as the "testimony" of Christ, was the "milk" that was provided for "babes in Christwho were at an elementary level of instruction.   Thus, what Paul was portraying was the very elementary stages of the process of transformation and birth that would permit the seeker/disciple to begin to escape the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- which reality of organic three-dimensional consciousness only permitted the person to perceive the shadow-images which are allegorical symbols of a higher unseen twelve-dimensional reality which the mind of organic man is blind to.

When Paul portrayed the baptized and committed Christians who he personally taught as incapable of comprehending man's higher soul and spiritual reality because they were of a "natural" organic mind -- the meaning of the word natural should in fact be more properly translated as of an "animal-soul" level of being (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature ).   Which profound statement provokes the question: What is meant by the term that Paul used when he described the very people who he had himself taught who were incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom when he portrayed them as being of a "natural" organic level of mind and consciousness?   The Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary writes with respect to the meaning of the word in the original Greek language: "natural man—literally, 'a man of animal soul'."  Further,  the Treasury Of Scriptural Knowledge for the ignored and profound statement at 1 Cor 2:14 which reads (quoting Paul): "But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."  Then provides the interpretative-meaning of Paul's words with respect to the reality of what is portrayed by Paul as the natural man:. [Psuchikos,] the animal man, one who lives in a natural state, and under the influence of his animal passions; for [psuche] means the inferior and sensual part of man, in opposition to the [nous] understanding, or [pneuma,] the spirit. And this is not only true -- but is is a fact of life that all mystics and enlightened souls must deal with when interacting with organic man.   Which is exactly why Paul profoundly stated to the very people who he had personally taught the Gospel message: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ).   Stating to the body of confirmed and baptized believers who he stated had received all truth and knowledge pertaining to the elementary "traditions" of Christ: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ). 

If what Paul and the other Gospel Authors stated is true, and there exist higher realities and dimensions of being that are totally inconceivable to the mind of the undeveloped faith-based believer (see Mysteries Of The Gospel ) -- and by virtue of the immaturity of the faith-based believers brought about by an embryonic condition of mind which Paul portrayed as the "natural" mind of man -- and the limitations of this embryonic condition of mind even inhibited Jesus from conveying the true meaning of the scriptures, and the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom to all but his inner core of disciples (see In The House - Taught In Parables) -- which means that the biblical authors were therefore powerless to explain in any detail and depth many of the most important Gospel teachings and concepts in the literal text of the New Testament -- then the spiritually mature author's of the scriptures who were themselves enlightened to these higher realities, remained virtually powerless to do anything more than to provide the people with a list of do's and don'ts -- so that the faith-based believers will be in a position where they will be better able to evolve to a mature understanding and comprehension of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.   To totally ignore these do's and don'ts, without knowing the consequence of one's choices and actions, is paramount to walking out onto a freeway blindfolded.   The fact that the modern Christian dogmatically believes that it is not necessary to observe and put into practice these do's and don'ts, has brought about a condition of abject spiritual ignorance -- and in their walking what Jesus portrayed as the "broad-way", their own self-destruction. 

Mankind is portrayed in the parable of the two sons as the younger prodigal son who abandons the Kingdom of the Father, and squanders away his divine inheritance on "riotous living" in this realm which is called the Far Country -- also portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- which, when rightly understood, parallels the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions (see Cave) -- which the Gospel of Thomas describes in the rather profound statement: (56) Jesus said, "He who has come to understand this world shall discover (only) a corpse, and whoever has discovered a corpse shall transcend beyond this world."    Which implies the reality, that the only means by which mankind can be restored to his original condition, is to transcend and move beyond the limitations of this world -- i.e., the Far Country that is not his place of origin.   And this was and remains the ONLY objective of the authors of the scriptures in the composition of their Sacred Writings (see An Inconvenient Truth).  

In the same way that Paul was forced (because of the spiritual immaturity of the congregation of believers he taught) to limit his teachings to a quasi-historical "testimony" of  "...Jesus and him crucified" -- warning that even if it were possible to convey to these baptized and confirmed Christians anything beyond what Paul portrayed as the "milk" of the Gospel which is necessary for babes in Christ who would reject the higher spiritual knowledge and teachings as utter "foolishness" if he was to openly present the Truth to them -- the authors of the scriptures had no other choice than to utilize this entry-level "milk" designed for spiritually immature Christians in the literal presentation of the scriptures.  

Paul confirmed the important reason why the Gospels are parables within the framework of a larger body of parables: "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it. But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34 NKJV -- see: In The House - Taught In Parables - The Key Of Knowledge).  And because of the Laws of Creation, the Spiritual Visionary and Mystic understands that they cannot do what neither Jesus, Paul or any of the biblical authors were incapable of doing -- which is to convey the higher reality of the Soul and the Kingdom to mankind in his "natural" and/or "animal-soul" level of being.   When rightly understood, this world which is portrayed as the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son, is a three-dimensional shadow-world (see OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ) to those who in the manner of the example of those who had yet to bring about the transformation of the physical body and mind, refuse to make the change within themselves necessary to prove the Truth by travailing in TheWay.  At the foregoing link I explain that this realm is a three-dimensional image of a higher twelve-dimensional reality -- which is why it is portrayed by mystics as a shadow-world of illusions.  And BY DESIGN, the only means that you or any other of the lost prodigal sons have to prove the truth, is to bring about the necessary changes within yourself to prevail over the human limitations which Paul portrays as "natural" and of an "animal-soul" level of being (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature ).   In the same way that you can't enroll an infant in a university, if you desire to Know the Truth, then you must make the necessary changes and transformation within your own mind and being that permits you to Know the Truth -- and this is BY DIVINE DESIGN.  In the parable of the Sower And The Seed, this necessary environment of purified and refined body and mind is portrayed as the "good ground".    And in the same way that when man provides the proper purified and refined foundation environment within one's own body and mind, each person possesses the innate ability to Know the Truth of all Truths -- and the only requirement is for them to begin to live the Truth that has been revealed to them in word, thought, desire and deed.   In the below I will demonstrate the reality of the statement in the Wycliffe Bible Commentary that only the sincere disciple could be: “...instructed in the esoteric teaching... which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”.  

 

The Loss Of Our Inheritance

The Expansion And Deepening Of Mind And Being

Dwelling Within A Holographic Reality 

 

   The Divine Pattern Of Mind And Being: In the above, brain scientist Karl Pribram had explained with respect to the objects we perceive in the outer world that “It isn’t that the world of appearances is wrong; it isn’t that there aren’t objects out there, at one level of reality. It’s that if you penetrate through and look at the universe with a holographic system, you arrive at a different reality, one that can explain things that have hitherto remained scientifically inexplicable: paranormal phenomena… synchronicities, the apparently meaningful coincidence of events”   While cyberneticist David Foster described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   The reality of the holographic theory says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space.   The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”   With astronomer James Jeans explaining that: “Today there is a wide measure of agreement… that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”; and the statement by astronomer Arthur Eddington:  “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”.   But what this means is that we are presently dwelling within a Great Cosmic Mind -- and all that exists, exists because Creator-God has Thought it into existence.   The ancient Mystics and Visionaries knew this -- and having developed their mind, understood the secret of how to bring about the expansion and deepening of mind that would permit them to observe and interact with the Source in what the modern physicist portrays as the Field -- and therefore were able to enter within the inner gateway of their own Consciousness, and come into the Presence of the Source which the ancients call the Logos -- where the secrets and mysteries of all of Creation was revealed to them.

In a holographic sub-reality that can rightly be portrayed as a womb where the process of birth is the objective, birth can only be brought about as Wholeness is achieved.  From a physical perspective, an undeveloped fetus is miscarried or spontaneously aborted -- and when the properties of a hologram is rightly understood, all aspects of the fragments are imbued with the pattern of the Whole.   Which is why Paul stated: "...because that which is known about God ...for God made it evident to them.  For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse" (Rom 1:19-20 NAS).   If the seeker understands the three-dimensional nature and pattern which they see in the physical, and then applies that pattern within their own mind and being, then the seeker begins to bring about a condition of maturity and wholeness.   Without attaining this necessary degree of Wholeness, the person remains limited to the fractional piece they represent within the spectrum of the Greater Whole of the outer world.    Which higher reality of vision and perception is of course presented in the words of Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas: "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you...".

  The Laws And The Two Creation Accounts:  In order to even begin to understand the life you are presently living -- the knowledge of which has been greatly obscured by man's ignorance pertaining to the dilemma of the Two Creation Accounts in Genesis -- you will first have to understand the difference between  what has been traditionally portrayed as the Theist and Deist perception of Creation.  Quoting from the encyclopedia (see Deism): The words deism and theism are both derived from words for god: the former from Latin deus, the latter from Greek theós (θεός).  Prior to the 17th Century the terms ["deism" and "deist"] were used interchangeably with the terms "theism" and "theist", respectively. ... Theologians and philosophers of the 17th Century began to give a different signification to the words... Both [theists and deists] asserted belief in one supreme God, the Creator... . But the theist taught that God remained actively interested in and operative in the world which he had made, whereas the Deist maintained that God endowed the world at creation with self-sustaining and self-acting powers and then surrendered it wholly to the operation of these powers acting as second causes".

What is being stated is that both words are drawn from the words for God -- but from different languages.  And when rightly understood, the primary difference between the Deist and the Theist is that the Deist understands the Laws -- and that all things MUST return back to it's SOURCE.  When the prodigal son was suffering in the Far Country, the Father did not come rushing to alleviate his distress.   From the traditional Theist perspective, the Father would have intervened in the suffering of his son.  Whereas, the parable is presented from a purely Deist perspective where there is an important reason for the suffering of the son that would be negated and totally undermined if the Father was to directly intervene.   But that the Father was well aware of the plight of his son is seen in the fact that when the son was still a long way off in his return to the Kingdom, the Father who was observing and monitoring His son from the Kingdom, came and assisted the son in his return Home.   It is important to recognize that prior to that point where the son began his long journey home, he was referred to as being dead -- "For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found" (Luke 15:24). 

The third saying of the recently discovered Gospel of Thomas states:  "When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty."    What is the meaning of the words: "...then you will become known"???  `How can it even be suggested that God does not know us?   Yet, these words were not only intentionally written in this manner -- but they present an important series of foundational facts that few people who claim to know God understand the reality of.  These same words are repeated in Jesus' statement that should be heeded by every person professing to believe:  "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord!' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the person who does what my Father in heaven wants.  Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, didn't we prophesy in your name? Didn't we force out demons and do many miracles by the power and authority of your name?' Then I will tell them publicly, 'I've never known you. Get away from me, you evil people.'  (Mat: 7:21-23).    Thus, even if you profess to be a believer who in the name of Jesus has performed miracles, cast out demons, and prophesied in the name of Christ, the Bible warns that unless you fulfill the Will of the Father, that Jesus will state of you that he has "never known you" -- and for many of the same reasons that it can be said that you are "not known by God".   Again, from the Epistles of Paul is this declaration: "But the man who loves God is known by God" (1 Cor 8:3 NIV) -- which indicates that those who fail to do the Will of God, cannot love God, and therefore is not even "known by God".   And since few people can fulfill the words spoken by Jesus -- i.e., "When you come to know yourselves..." -- it also remains true that they are not known in the way that they imagine -- i.e.,  "...then you will become known" 

It is plain in the scriptures that Jesus is “a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting” (1 Tim 1:16 KJV). A pattern is not something that you casually believe in -- but rather, something that you mold your life after.  Moreover, if Jesus is the pattern, then Jesus is the very standard by which all men are to be judged.  Why?  Because if Jesus was a man (see The Ten Words) who was able to perfect himself by fulfilling the Royal Law within himself, and be resurrected into the Kingdom, then all our excuses for leading carnal and immoral lives are without merit -- i.e., because this same standard would then be expected of us -- the Lord's brothers and sisters.

The Apostle tells us: “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children” (Eph 5:1 NAS).  If we were created as inferior beings who were nothing more than the natural offspring of Adam and Eve, as Christians believe today, then the Apostle would never have told a race of inferior beings to imitate God.  The basis of Paul's words is seen in the fact that man is created in the image and likeness of God, and is God's own offspring.  If we were inferior beings, neither would God command us: “ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy” (Lev 11:45 KJV), if we did not possess this innate ability. Further, that all of mankind has this same potential, is why Jesus commanded: "You, therefore, must be Perfect, as your Heavenly Father is Perfect" (Matt 5:48).   And what is presented in the above, is no different than what St. Gregory said when he wrote that we must walk the “path of an exact imitation of Him Who leads the way to salvation” -- which path in the words of St. Nazianzen, reveals to us our true nature and makes “us like God”.   And this is why Jesus stated: "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father" (John 14:12).   And that each of us has the same potential as our brother Jesus is presented in the words: "'I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17).  

When a child becomes an adult, is he inferior to his parent?  In like manner, when the prodigal son returns home to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination, and matures to his full spiritual potential and stature, is he inferior to his father?  What is important is for us to realize that we do not know our true potential, and neither do we understand the process that gives us the ability to “imitate God”, and makes us “like God”. The undeniable Christian Truth that no one who claims to be a believer should deny, is that we don't know the answer to these questions. How can we? As Christians, we have faith that Jesus meant what he said when he promised that he would teach us -- and reveal to us all the Mysteries of God -- if we become his faithful disciple.
This great truth is seen in Origen's reply to Celsus where he wrote: “By participation in the Son of God one is adopted as a son… by participation in the Holy Spirit is a man rendered holy and spiritual…”.  Those who have not themselves yet uncovered their true spiritual nature as the Sons and Daughters of God, perceive sacred truths in forms, types, and allegories -- because they, being carnal, “cannot comprehend” the mysteries of God that awaits them.  When God, in the words of St. Nazianzen, no longer is an “object of wonder”, but rather an “object of desire” -- and we, desiring to be purified from the defilements of this world, make ourselves fit vessels for the Lord to indwell, the Spirit, according to St. Nazianzen, reveals to us our true nature, and the revelation of this manifest Sacred Knowledge makes “us like God; so that when we have thus become like Himself, God may, to use a bold expression, hold converse with us as Gods, being united to us, and that perhaps to the same extent as He already knows those who are known to Him”. St. Nazianzen then writes that “the Divine Nature then is boundless and hard to understand” by those who are yet carnal and think as natural beings of this world.
The faith-based Christians who Paul portrays as still being of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness, are incapable of comprehending the above -- i.e.,
“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).   Because their own higher Soul-Reality is incomprehensible to them, they worship the pattern instead of imitating it.   They are troubled by the concept: Who among us has attained to such a level of Godliness that God will “converse with us as gods”?  Yet it states: "Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, 'I said, You are gods '?" (John 10:34 NKJ).  

It is for this reason that Origen admits that the disciple of Christ knows full well that growing to spiritual maturity is not a simple chore.  "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22 NKJ).  In the same way that a fetus and infant cannot grow to maturity in the cycle of a day, neither can the soul grow to its Godly potential in the cycle of one lifetime.  In the same way that a child grows to a man in steps, Jesus taught (see Biblical Foundation Mindset) the soul has transmigrated and inhabited many bodies of flesh in its quest for this necessary level of Godliness. 

Paul taught that the faith-based Christians who were yet of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature  http://SoulSelf.org#AnimalNature ), would be incapable of understanding the Journey of the Soul and its eventual return to the SOURCE.   And as the sincere seeker begins to connect with its Inner Self, ONLY THEN does the person we are in this world begin to comprehend the cycles of the life we live.   And as the sincere seeker begins to possess the "eyes to see and the ears to hear", they begin to perceive the ability to understand the Laws that returns all things to it's Source -- including the Journey which evolves the Soul over the course of many lifetimes to a state of Wholeness and Completion (see http://ChristianReincarnation.org ).   Thus, prodigal son cannot return to it's Source, until which time he has learned the lessons of this, God's Divine Schoolhouse -- which is portrayed in the parable as the Far Country. 

If, as Paul states, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV) -- and each person confronts their own past actions as a matter of Laws that were put into action in the Alpha of Creation --  then there is no reason for God's intervention to suspend the Laws that He Created to evolve all of Creation from the Alpha of Ignorance to the Omega of Enlightened Light.  Further, if the modern physicist as stated above is correct, and there is nothing but Mind and Thought -- i.e., "...the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine... The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff” -- then the Laws also possess the power to interact directly with our thoughts, our prayers, our desires and the very heart of our being from the perspective of a reality that gives new meaning to the statement: "Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life" (Prov 4:23).  The fact that the Laws intimately interact with the "thoughts of your heart" -- and the Truth is Known regardless of what you say with your lips -- or your actions before other men and women -- confirms that while prayers are answered, they are not answered in the manner that most faith-based religious people assume or imagine.  

The Destiny of every Soul has been plotted from the Infantile Period of the Alpha of Creation, to the mature and evolved Omega of Enlightened Light.  Our progress is directly mapped and plotted in direct accord with our own words, thoughts, actions and deeds -- i.e., “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).  There is no reason and purpose for a supernatural being to intervene, because the Natural Laws of Creation are imbued with this high-level ability to respond to the Thoughts of our Heart.   When it is realized that the same Laws that interact with the Thoughts or our Hearts, are the same Laws that are plotting our Higher Destiny, then why would these same Laws that are moving in our own best interest, need to be overcome based upon what we say with our lips, irrespective of the Thoughts of our Hearts, or the objective of the path we are presently walking.   While there are many things that man in his ignorance of his destiny desires and wants, that does not mean that the fulfillment of his desires are in his best interests.   
With respect to the Natural Laws: While I will present additional clarifying statements and documentation after other material is covered in the below , the encyclopedia asserts that "Deism holds that God does not intervene with the functioning of the natural world in any way, allowing it to run according to the laws of nature that he configured when he created all things" (see Deism).   And it is these  "...laws of nature" which the historical Jesus overcame WITHIN HIMSELF, in order to become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ).    Thus, Creator-God enacted "...the laws of nature that he configured when he created all things" for the express purpose of perfecting the prodigal sons -- and as a human, the historical Jesus was the first of the prodigal sons to fulfill the purpose and objective of the Laws that God Created.   In the same way that parents see to the education of their offspring, so too did Creator-God.   And in the same way that parents send their children off to school to learn, the offspring of Creator-God entered God's School House (see DivineStrategery.com ) in order to bring about the necessary learning process.   And in the same way that a child's education spans a great many months, days and years, it is necessary for the education of the soul of the prodigal son to span many lifetimes in the process of fulfilling the Laws which God "...configured when he created all things [which was[ ...run according to the laws of nature".   And that organic man does not remember his more distant past, is because he dwells in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- which "outer darkness" parallels that of the analogy of Plato's Cave -- and if he (man) remembered his more distant past in the form of the past lives his soul lived, it would disrupt and even negate the learning experience that is achieved in each lifetime.

There is another important aspect of the Laws that is not at all understood by the vast majority of the people -- a reality that is founded upon the paradigm that within the One there is the Many.  In the below I will present the reality that All that Exists, Exists in the Mind of God -- that each Soul can be thought of as a Single Neuron within the Mind of God -- that because of the holographic pattern that is replicated into all of Creation, each incarnation of a soul-generated personality into this world can be thought of as a single neuron within the Mind of the Soul -- and that because TIME is a dimension of mind, all the soul-generated personalities continue to exist within the Soul Mind-Matrix (see http://SoulSelf.org ) -- and that once again, because of the holographic pattern that is replicated into all of Creation, within each soul-generated personality which we can portray as the individual person, exists a great multitude of personalities (see below The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind).  Which confirms the Gospel statement of Jesus that a House Divided Cannot Stand.  Which means that the request or prayer of a faith-based person is evaluated by the Natural Laws, and in most instances is often canceled out by those other personalities within the person who is either in opposition to what is being expressed in thought or prayer, and is not willing to live in accord with the desires of the other personalities within the divided mind of the same person.   As an example -- quoting from The List of Fallen Tele-Evangelists:

Jimmy Swaggart’s confession where he declared to his congregation on television, “I have sinned against you, my Lord”, became an iconic image of the 1980s. In 1986, evangelist Jimmy Swaggart began on-screen attacks against fellow televangelists Marvin Gorman and Jim Bakker. He uncovered Gorman’s affair with a member of Gorman’s congregation, and also helped expose Bakker’s infidelity (which was arranged by a colleague while on an out-of-state trip). These exposures received widespread media coverage. Gorman retaliated in kind by hiring a private investigator to uncover Swaggart’s own adulterous indiscretions with a prostitute. Swaggart was subsequently forced to step down from his pulpit for a year and made a tearful televised apology in February 1988 to his congregation, saying “I have sinned against you, my Lord, and I would ask that your precious blood would wash and cleanse every stain until it is in the seas of God’s forgiveness.”  Swaggart was caught again by California police three years later in 1991 with another prostitute, Rosemary Garcia, who was riding with him in his car when he was stopped for driving on the wrong side of the road. When asked why she was with Swaggart, she replied, “He asked me for sex. I mean, that’s why he stopped me. That’s what I do. I’m a prostitute.” 

While these people prayed and called upon the Lord with their lips, the Natural Laws which interacts with the Thoughts of the Heart, knows the other personalities of Swaggart, Gorman and Bakker who desired sex with women other than their wives, as well as prostitutes.  Which means that from the perspective of the Natural Laws, the personalities praying or declaring their love of the Lord, were canceled out by those personalities who (from the perspective of the parable of the prodigal son) continued to live a "riotous lifestyle".   And this great truth of a great multitude of personalities desiring different things -- often in conflict and in direct opposition with the desires of other personalities within the same soul-generated personality -- totally dissolves the Gospel requirement of Wholeness. 

The Natural Laws of Creation has been sustaining us, and molding us, across the dimensions of Time and Being from the Alpha to the Omega of Creation itself.  While the victim today begs for mercy, when the Soul of that victim was the aggressor, that soul-generated personality showed no mercy to those people who were exploited.  As you do unto others, the same will be done unto you ("Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets" Matt 7:12) -- which was clarified by Paul in the reality of the words: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).  That a great many people perpetuate evil upon their brothers and sisters -- that when their own evil is turned back upon them when their Soul returns back into this world which is God's Schoolhouse to learn their lessons as a victim of their own Soul's evil -- is a reality that the vast majority of mankind cannot grasp or come to terms with.   Yet, "...This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets" that organic "natural" man lacks the necessary vision and understanding to comprehend the reality within which he is immersed in Laws much like a fish is immersed in water.   In fact, the fish was the early symbol of the Gospel teachings because while man is immersed in a sea of Natural Laws which control every step he takes -- i.e., "The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps" (Prov 16:9).   What this means is that while mankind makes many plans, it is the Laws that direct his steps and his destiny.   And those Laws work in concert with the Thoughts of the Heart.

Why were you born under the conditions of life that you are experiencing in the present?   Which provokes the question: Is your life the result of chance, fate, an accident, or are you in fact responsible for every aspect of the life that you are presently living?   Prior to the Dark Ages of Profound Spiritual Ignorance that the Church of Rome cast the world into in the fourth century, there were Christians and wise men who could accurately answer this question from a paradigm of thought that was founded upon sure knowledge of Self and the Natural Laws of Creation.   But these Spiritual Christians were hunted down and put to death.   Why?   Because they rejected the religion of the emperor.  Today, history has again repeated itself, and mankind has become intellectually flat-lined and spiritually castrated by an Atheist driven mindset that is promoted by our culture, and forced upon the  people by a government that is being used to subdue all voices in opposition.  In the same way that the early Christians chose death rather than submitting to the dictates of the Pagan Roman Emperor, the modern Christian must totally reject and throw off the tenets and symbols of Atheism and the prevailing ignorance that is promoted by the religion of Secular Humanism.   In truth, every day those who call themselves Christians deny the Lord, when they submit to the Atheist agenda and paradigm of thought that immerses the culture in abject and profound ignorance, moral and spiritual degeneracy.

What is the conditions of your birth and station in life?   While many of the pre-Nicene Christians could readily answer important questions that has alienated modern man from a higher reality that he is in denial of, most people who have been programmed with the modern cultural Atheist Paradigm of Thought will conclude that their birth was fate or chance -- an accident -- or even luck.   Yet, in reality, none of these choices are accurate.   Whether you were born rich, poor, in a third world nation or with a silver spoon in your mouth -- or, somewhere in between -- your religion, your occupation, your country of origin, whether you are a male or female, your sexual orientation, liberal, conservative, libertarian, Atheist, Marxist, environmentalist, anarchist -- whatever your present station in life is, not only the manner you entered into this life was determined prior to your even being born -- but the Laws of God has scripted and preordained all of your choices and opportunities that have been presented to you -- as if you are walking through a labyrinth where the measure of your freewill is the determination of what choices you will make with the options that are presented to you.   Jesus taught that not even a sparrow can fall to the ground apart from the Laws of God that brings about all  the events in this world -- and yet, our modern Atheist-driven culture remains totally ignorant of the very Laws that move all things in this world.  

What this means is that most people, groups or secular governments who attempt to help those in need -- especially those who promote Marxism, Socialism and Social Justice -- without teaching the people that they are the cause, and those engaged in helping are attempting to assist them prevail over the Natural Laws and the Source of their infirmities, sufferings and hardships -- are in many cases inflicting even greater harm upon those who they are attempting to help.   As stated in the above (see Jesus The Professor), what Jesus was actually teaching in the Sermon on the Mount was the workings of the Natural Laws of Creation.  When Jesus said to the person he had healed "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV), he was conveying to the people the reality of the Laws that control every aspect of their lives.  In the words of the Church Father Origen who wrote that: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis) -- what he was stating was that the previous actions of our own Soul, has created and orchestrated the life we are presently living.   Even to the degree of the Laws casting us into what Jesus portrayed as a type of prison (see below: ThePrison).   Which means that all infirmities or suffering that each person endures in this life -- as well as the evil and hardships -- has been brought about by the Laws that were invoked in that person's own more distant past of the person who is experiencing the consequences of their own choices they made in the past.  

While the average Christian might question why the Deist's hold that Creator-God does not directly intervene in the affairs of mankind -- but instead (the Deist) relies upon the Laws "...that he [Creator-God] configured when he created all things" -- when rightly understood, what is being presented in these words is exactly what Jesus portrayed  in the parable of the Prodigal Son.  After leaving the Heavenly Kingdom and squandering away his inheritance in this, the Far Country,  the son had to "come to his senses", and had to return to the Kingdom of the Father on his own accord.   And while the Father was willing to meet the son after he began his journey homeward, this was not until the son was half-way home in TheWay.   The position that God does not directly intervene in the affairs of man, is seen in the fact that even when the prodigal son suffered and was in great need, the Father at no time moved to help him in his trials.   Thus, it is written: "And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.  And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.   And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.   And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him" (Luke 15:13-16 KJV).    Why did the Father not help the suffering son?    Because the Laws had already been put into place that would not only guarantee the return of the son -- but also, these Laws were enacted to perform the intended objectives of the reality that the Far Country was created to bring about -- i.e., it is these very Laws that were ordained by Creator-God that evolves and perfects the soul of each individual in the manner of a spiritual Living Bio-Feedback system through the process of confronting every person with the fruit of their own past actions -- i.e.,  “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).  

To even begin to understand the process of becoming Whole and Complete, one must first understand that the Original Gospel Teachings had an entirely different objective than what is dogmatically embraced today.  Thus, the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” (see The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind).  It is the evolution of mind that brings about the necessary "...heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” from the Alpha of ignorance, to the Omega of Enlightenment, that enables the prodigal son to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.   And this innate ability which is in fact an integral part of our Spiritual DNA, is inborn in each of us and brought about by God, our Source of Being, and is an integral part of "...the laws of nature that he configured when he created all things".     And it is important to understand that the core Deists -- like all True Gnostics -- understood the journey of the soul.  

What has long confused students of the scriptures is what is portrayed as the apparent two Creation accounts in the beginning of Genesis.   It has been noted that even the order and sequence of Creation is different between the two accounts.   And this confusion is largely the result of their own misunderstandings.   Both the Gnostics as well as the Deists understood the reason why there appears to be two Creation accounts, as did many of the esoteric orders of Masons and Rosicrucians.   In the first Genesis Creation account when it reads that on the Seventh Day Creator-God rested because all his labors were Complete, that means exactly what it states.   Creator-God did not awaken on the day following the Cosmic Sabbath, and once again begin to labor in the earth.   What was accomplished in the initial Genesis account was the creation of the Laws that would bring the Thoughts (Word) of God from the Alpha of ignorance -- a prevailing ignorance that existed because no experiential knowledge existed -- to the Omega of Absolute Light and Enlightenment as all of Creation was brought to Completion.   In the first Creation account the direct movement of God is presented -- while in the second Creation account what is being presented is the Laws of Creation that God brought forth before resting from His Labors.

A key biblical statement which explains the movement of the Laws is seen in the words: "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.  For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it" (Isa 55:8-11 NKJ).   What both the core Deists knew -- and what is presented in the parable of the prodigal son -- is the reality that all the Laws were put into place in the Alpha of Creation as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism, in order to evolve the All to Completion and Perfection.    The fact that these Laws which were the Works of Creator-God were Perfect, and did not need constant tweaking and fixing, is representative of a Truth that both the Deists, Mystics and the Gnostics understood -- while faith-based believers and their Atheist critics remain perplexed by the apparent conflicting creation accounts in the beginning of Genesis.   Moreover, both the core Deists and the Christian Gnostics understood that in what is allegorically portrayed as the Fall of Man, part of the soul became lost and entangled in the lower worlds which correspond to the lower aspects and realities of mind and being -- and this is why man's mind and being is divided across the spectrum of seven kingdoms.   Man, who is of the fourth kingdom, is the balance between the heavenly and earthly (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature  http://SoulSelf.org#AnimalNature ). 

  Allegorical Fall of Man: What is allegorically portrayed as the Fall of Man was not at all due to any fault of our own -- but was a natural exploration of self as both God through our souls, and our souls through us, began to explore the reality of Self.   Thus, a long ignored statement by Paul is seen in the words: "For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now" (Rom 8:19-22 NKJ).   Take especial notice of the words:  "...For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it  ...For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now".   In the same way that Jesus stated that unless you bring about the next stage of birth, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven -- all of the trials of the prodigal son in this, the Far Country, is the process of birth that was brought upon mankind by the Laws that Creator-God put into action in what is allegorically portrayed as the Seven Days of Creation.   In the beginning Gnosis did not exist, because no experiential knowledge existed -- and part of us became lost in the lower worlds in an attempt to begin to know self -- and God is Knowing Self through our higher soul-selves -- and our higher soul-selves is coming to know self through us.

In the beginning all souls existed as sparks of the Divine.   In what I portray as the realm of souls, each individual soul would be perceived as weak flickering light.   Quoting The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia under the heading of Souls, Transmigration of: “The doctrine of transmigration of souls, which was especially accepted by the Karaites… is generally attacked by Jewish philosophers, but is defended by Isaac Abravanel and Manasseh ben Israel. It appears often in Cabala; it is found in organized form in the Zohar, it is further developed in the teachings of Isaac Luria (1534-1572), and in Hasidism it becomes a universal belief. According to these teachings, all human souls have a common origin in the spiritual unity of the primordial man, sparks of which form the individual souls... The sin of Adam brought higher and lower souls into confusion; as a result, every soul has to pass through a series of incarnations... The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”.    Thus, the pre-existent soul of man which are portrayed as "..sparks of which form the individual souls... are in fact the Beings of Light (see http://BeingOfLight.com ) encountered by some in a Near Death Experience -- and it is this Being of Light that is asexual and without a physical body as we perceive in this world, that is each person's true form and self.   But for the emperor of Rome to suppress this important esoteric teaching and knowledge pertaining to the true higher reality of mankind -- in conjunction with the condemnation of the teachings on the preexistent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes -- was the equivalent of the Church being shackled into a self-imposed abyss of ignorance from which the Church has not even begun to emerge.  

It is important to note that there existed a segment of the Church as late as the 6th century that possessed the soul-knowledge that man's true reality and form was a Being of Light.   Among the condemnations of the Emperor Justinian against Origen in the 2nd Council of Constantinople in the year 553 where the teachings on the preexistent soul was condemned and deemed heresy from a Church perspective, was this statement: "If anyone says or thinks that, at the resurrection, human bodies will rise spherical in form and unlike our present form, let him be anathema" (see Council Agenda).    The problem is that the true form of the soul is a spherical Being of Light -- and the human body is merely an allegorical manifestation of the mind projected into the symbols of matter.   Moreover, in our natural state we are a Being of Light -- and our body-vessel which we inhabit in this world, is merely an allegorical projection of mind and spirit into the image of the body.   That the journey of the soul over the course of many lifetimes was an integral part of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- and was removed by the Roman Emperors who ruled over the doctrines of the Church -- is demonstrated conclusively in The Ten Reasons Why The Church Rejects The Teaching On The Pre-Existent Soul.  

Where the 4th century Church of Constantine put to death the Spirit of the Church (see above The Corruption Of The Church), it's Spiritual Castration which totally alienated the congregation of believers from comprehending even what was left of a corrupted and spiritually sanitized New Testament (see Bible Corruption), was implemented in the 6th century.   As an example of how the Christian world was literally forced to adhere to the dogma of the secular priests and emperors, when the doctrine of the pre-existent soul was outlawed by the Emperor Justinian, the Britannica confirms that the emperor then forced his will upon the Church when he "...banished the pope to Egypt , and afterwards to an island, until he accepted the Council, which he ultimately did" (see http://Ebionite.com/reincarnation.htm ).    After relenting to the will of the emperor, and finely accepting the decree of the emperor after seven months of imprisonment, it is reported that the pope met with an untimely death before he could even return to the Vatican.    And while it is true that most of the modern-day doctrines of the Church was forced upon the Christian world in this same violent manner -- and the vast majority of modern-day believers are all victims of what has come to be known as the Stockholm Syndrome -- the removal of this important original teaching has had such far ranging implications, that it has become impossible for modern believers and critics alike to even begin to get a valid sense of the original Gospel meaning and objectives (see An Inconvenient Truth).    The modern Church is faith-based -- founded upon blind-faith -- because the reader lacks the necessary tools to even get a sense of the very purpose of the original teachings of TheWay.   And this secular imposed intervention where the Christian world was literally forced to succumb to the decrees of the emperors, has had the far ranging effect of spiritually castrating the Church.   And this total blindness and inability to perceive and comprehend the inner soul and spiritual meaning of the scriptures is demonstrated conclusively in their folly associated with their doctrine on the Fall of Man and Augustine's doctrine of Original Sin. @@@###

In the allegorical account of Genesis, Adam is not a person -- the word Adam simply means man -- and like the parable of the prodigal son, is representative of the universal pattern and reality of all of mankind.  The idea of what is presented in the written text as the sin of Adam, is what is portrayed allegorically -- but the Fall was forced upon all souls as stated at Rom 8:19-22.   And this Fall was brought about because of the lack of Gnosis, or experiential knowledge.  But what is important to understand is that because of the state of inner division, part of the soul became lost in the lower kingdoms -- and as they began to experience independently, they took on a life of their own.   How could this happen?  Because each fragment is a holographic pattern of the whole -- which means that each fragment not only has the parts necessary to be independently conscious -- but at one level, is very much independently consciousness.

Again, the above words in Isaiah: "...So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it".    The Deists who understood the Laws, understood that Creator-God did not involve himself in the process that has been brought forth in the development of man in this world -- because Creator-God's labor was perfect and complete.    When an ovum is fertilized in the womb, it does not have to be re-fertilized at various points of development -- because the development of the embryo into a fetus, infant, adolescent and adult, is all brought about by the Laws.   Creator-God did not have to constantly tweak the Laws that were already perfect after His Labors were Perfect and Completed -- and this is why it in the parable that Jesus taught, it was the prodigal son who had to return to the Kingdom of the Father, rather than the Father having to come and get him in his trials and tribulations -- tribulations which Paul portrayed as the natural process of birth being brought forth by the Laws, as demonstrated in the above words: "...For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now"

  Spiritual Sabbath: Does the Gospels supply an answer to the Christian dilemma?   Paul writes that the Sabbath celebrated by the Jews is an allegorical representation of the Sabbath, as seen in his words that it is a "...shadow of things to come" (Col 2:17 KJV).   The Gospels are spiritual writings -- and they often intentionally conflict with what would be understood from a literal or historical perspective, in order to force the reader to seek the spiritual meaning.   The prediction was that the Son of Man would be three days in the tomb -- and yet, if you count the days as reported in the scriptures, they are two.   And this is because the Christians who read the scriptures in the manner of the Pharisees who threw away the Key of Knowledge, not only do not understand the spiritual meaning of the three days, but they further do not understand the portrayal of a Sabbath following the Passover.  They therefore attempt to doctrinally force the interpretation the following day after the Sabbath as the first day of the week -- or for those who worship the sun-god in the manner of the pagan Christians, Sunday.    On the other hand, the Greek word used to describe the day of the supposed resurrection, is mia ton sabbaton -- or, if literally translated, "one of the Sabbaths".    But the conflict over the day of the week is seen in the Christians inability to understand what is meant by "one of the Sabbaths" -- which is exactly how the Greek text reads.   And the grave misunderstanding of most Bible readers is seen when they fail to perceive that the allegorical symbol of the Sabbath is not the actual Sabbath that is the objective of the scriptures which is portrayed in the biblical term "one of the Sabbaths".         As noted in many places in this article, Eden is the embodiment of the Sabbath -- and it is the return to Eden while still alive in the body (see http://GateOfEden.com ), that is the true objective of the scriptures and the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.   From a true spiritual perspective, the Jews have never celebrated a Sabbath -- and what they observe, is an allegorical portrayal of the Sabbath that they lack the depth of understanding to comprehend the meaning of.   And this reality which is not understood by either the Jews, or the pagan Christians, is also presented in the meaning of the verse that was removed from the Gospel of Luke by the sun-worshipping Christians -- i.e.,  "On the same day, He (Jesus) beholding a man laboring on the Sabbath, said to him: Man if thou knowest what thou doest, blessed art thou; if however thou dost not know, cursed art thou and a transgressor of the law"  (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).    If the Passover is correctly embraced from a spiritual perspective (see http://Ebionite.com/Easter.htm ) -- in contradistinction to the allegorical Passover of the Jews -- then the disciple has overcome, and achieved the next level of birth -- and to him, there is nothing but Sabbaths.   After the Celebration of the True Sabbath which can only be accomplished in the fulfillment of the Laws within one's self, there is no more counting of days, weeks, months and years -- i.e., "But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage? You observe days and months and seasons and years.  I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain" (Gal 4:9-11 NKJ).   The Pharisees, who were condemned because of their carnal and ritualistic interpretation of the scriptures, celebrate an allegorical Sabbath that is of the flesh -- i.e., what Paul portrays as a "shadow" of the True Sabbath that is Spiritual.   The Disciples of Jesus are to strive to bring about the True Spiritual Sabbath of Completion -- and after you achieve this Spiritual Sabbath, there is no more days of the week -- but only the abiding eternal rest.   And this is why the Sabbath is portrayed as following the Passover in the Gospels, and the next day is portrayed as "one of the Sabbaths".    Among other things, what this means is that there is absolutely no basis for observing the day of the sun-god -- i.e., Sunday -- except, of course, if you worship the sun-god in the manner of the pagan Church of Rome.   And the fact that you can't count the days where the Son of Man was in the tomb three days -- and make it the day of the sun-god -- simply because you read the scriptures in the same manner as the Pharisees -- totally alienates the believers of the Church from even the very objects and spiritual essence of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay. 

  Received The Law From Angels - The Two Creation Accounts: Because the Deists understood both the Laws and the purpose of what was being conveyed in the two allegorical Creation accounts in Genesis, they understood that in the same way that the Father did not come rushing to the aid of his prodigal son when his son was in great need and being exploited by what Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country, neither does Creator-God tweak the Laws that were put into effect prior to God Resting on the Spiritual Sabbath.   Faith-based believers not only fail to understand the reason there is two Creation accounts in Genesis, but neither do they understand the true spiritual reality of the Sabbath.   Creator-God's work was completed in what is allegorically portrayed as the Sabbath -- and being Complete, there was no more work to be accomplished.   Therefore, not only does the Genesis account portray Creator-God's work as being Completed on the Sabbath, but what is presented as God in the second Creation account, portrays God in a different name.   God's Presence therefore, in all that follows the initial Creation account, is in fact the movement of God's Laws and the Natural Forces of Creation that was put into effect -- and this is confirmed in the disciples statement that allegorically, the Jews were a people who had "...received the law by the direction of angels and have not kept it" (Acts 7:53 NKJV).  But what does this mean?  Allegorically, the angels are representative of the personification of the Laws -- so it wasn't that a supernatural being handed the Law over to Moses -- but rather, that in the development of mind signified in the allegory of the text, the elevated consciousness enabled the mind to see, perceive and understand the higher reality of the Laws that organic man is blind to.   That, as Paul states, they "...have not kept it", is because they have failed to bring about the Completion of the Sabbath.   In further making reference to the Law, Paul writes: "For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment" (Heb 2:2 NIV).   

When the Laws that were put into effect are understood, perhaps the best way to portray these Laws that the Deists portrayed as the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, is as a Spiritual Bio-Feedback machine that dynamically evolves each soul to perfection by intimately responding to our every action, reaction and failure to act -- and responds appropriately when the time is opportune for our greatest learning and advancement.   That these Laws were put into action in the Alpha of Creation -- and are the Perfect Works of Creator-God that is Dynamically Designed to movement of man -- is a reality of the Laws that the core Deists attempted unsuccessfully to convey to the theists and organized religion.  

 

 

When approached by the Canaanite woman to heal her daughter, Jesus said: "I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel" (Matt 15:24).   Why?   Why was Jesus sent only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel?   And when the woman persisted, Jesus said to her: "It is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to the dogs."   Why would Jesus portray the woman as a "dog" -- especially in view of the commandment: "Do not give that which is holy to the dogs" (Matt 7:6).  Which provokes the question: What people are defined as dogs?  Why can't what is sacred be given to those people portrayed as dogs and swine -- i.e., "Do not give dogs what is holy; do not throw your pearls before swine. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces"   When Paul warns the baptized and committed Christians at Corinth who he, himself, originally instructed, that they were yet to carnal in their understanding to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospel -- which is often referred to as the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God -- he conveyed to them the reality that they would judge and even condemn this higher reality of the Spirit as absolute "foolishness" -- i.e., “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ - see What Difference Does It Make?).   What Paul was in essence saying was that because the Christians who he has himself taught the principles of the Gospel were still imbued with the traits of what Jesus portrayed as dogs and swine, that it was impossible for these Christians to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospel, the higher reality of the Soul, and receive the Sacred Knowledge of the Kingdom of God.   Why?   Because of their spiritual immaturity, they had yet to evolve into what Jesus portrayed as the House of Israel.  And if this is true -- and Jesus was sent only to the House of Israel -- and only those who constitute the House of Israel can comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospel and the higher reality of the Soul.  Which provokes the question: Who, then, is the House of Israel?  

In not understanding the answer to these questions, it remains virtually impossible for modern Christians to understand one of the most important realities of the Gospel message.   While the traditional answer would be that Jesus was making reference to the Jews, this answer is assumed, because there is a missing element to the equation that is not rightly understood.    Jesus clearly portrayed the Torah Observant Jewish leaders as the offspring of the Devil, as seen in the statement as to why they did not, and could not, understand his teachings: "Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it" (John 8:43-44 NKJ).   Which is why many of the earliest Christians portrayed the Pharisees and Sadducees as counterfeit Israel.  And it must be remembered that the original Spiritual Christians portrayed the Jews as worshiping a false god -- an evil demiurge.

In understanding why the leaders of the Jews were portrayed by Jesus as counterfeit Israel, it is necessary to rely upon a teaching that was removed from the traditional Gospels, but has been preserved in the Gospel of the Nazirenes which states: "For they, making a god of their belly, sacrificed to their God the innocent creatures of the earth, in place of the carnal nature within themselves. And eating of their flesh and drinking of their blood to their own destruction, corrupted their bodies and shortened their days, even as the Gentiles who did not know the truth, or who knowing it, have changed it into a lie."  What is being made reference to in this quotation is the practice of animal sacrifice carried out in the Jerusalem Temple, and the eating of animal flesh.  That organic man is ruled over by his lower animal nature, is explored at Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature.   That the animal sacrifice that is presented in the Old Testament is an allegorical portrayal of the seeker's refinement of their lower animal nature is presented at Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple And that what is being allegorical portrayed, is the transformation of the seeker's own body into the Final Living Temple as portrayed in the article in AskMoses.com (see The Final Temple).  

Quotation From AskMoses.com Under the Heading of: What Is The Holy Temple?

The Final Temple: With the destruction of the Second Temple, G-d changed His mode of interaction with the universe. Until the destruction, the Temple was the window to G-d; spirituality had a physical home in Jerusalem. The Kohanim offered the daily sacrifices, the daily routines went uninterrupted, daily personal prayer was redundant.

With the destruction, G-d destroyed the physical Temple and made it a spiritual place... We cannot find G-d in Jerusalem; we must find Him in us

With the destruction, G-d destroyed the physical Temple and made it a spiritual place. He took that window and placed it within us. Instead of traveling to Jerusalem, G-d wanted us to find Him in our inner Jerusalem. Now, our bodies are our Temples, our souls are our windows, our minds are our Kohanim and our animal instincts are our sacrifices. We cannot offer physical sacrifices three times a day, but we can pray three times a day. We cannot attend Temple services three times a day, but we can tap into our souls three times a day. We cannot atone for our shortcomings by sacrificing animals, but we can sacrifice our inner animals—our hormones, our lusts, our desires, our beastly compulsions. We cannot find G-d in Jerusalem; we must find Him in us.

This was G-d’s Master Plan. By exchanging a sweeping, dramatic outdoor concert of public spirituality for an internal, personal, private experience, G-d was bringing Himself even closer to humanity, laying the groundwork for the Third and final Temple—an age that will synthesize G-d’s presence inside our hearts and minds and in the world around us in a totally new reality: the Era of Moshiach.

What we see in the above is the perfect application of the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ) wherein the scriptures are turned within self -- instead of interpreted externally in the manner of the Jewish leaders who sacrificed animals in the Jerusalem Temple.  Thus the statement: "We cannot find G-d in Jerusalem; we must find Him in us" -- and in these words we see the very essence of the New Covenant vs the Old Covenant.   And one of the most important application of the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge in the words: "We cannot atone for our shortcomings by sacrificing animals, but we can sacrifice our inner animals—our hormones, our lusts, our desires, our beastly compulsions. We cannot find G-d in Jerusalem; we must find Him in us."  And it is this sacrifice and refinement of our lower animal nature that is the crossing point between the Old (external) and New (internal) Covenants and the proper application of the scriptures. 

When the Gospel account of Jesus states: "Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do...", the reference was made to the Two Powers of God -- i.e., the Prince of the Left Hand, and the Prince of the Right Hand.   The Prince of the Left Hand has been portrayed as the "Citizen of the Far Country" -- the god of this world -- Satan and Lucifer -- and the Demiurge creator of this world.  Those who worship outwardly in ritual and tradition, worship the god of this world.  Those who seek knowledge from without, instead of seeking Knowledge ONLY from the True Prophet within (see True Prophet), are seekers of pseud-knowledge -- and are portrayed in the Gospels as "dogs and swine".   In referencing the Laws that were put into effect in the beginning of the Alpha of Creation and what is portrayed as The Two Princes, Peter then explains: "For thus from the beginning was a law laid by God, the Creator of all things, on each of the two princes, him of the right hand and him of the left, that neither should have power over any one whom they might wish to benefit or to hurt, unless first he had sat down at the same table with them. As, then, when you partook of meat offered to idols, you became servants to the prince of evil, in like manner, if you cease from these things, and flee for refuge to God through the good Prince of His right hand, honoring Him without sacrifices, by doing whatsoever He wills, know of a truth that not only will your bodies be healed, but your souls also will become healthy. For He only, destroying with His left hand, can quicken with His right; He only can both smite and raise the fallen."      

To begin, we must understand how Peter portrayed the proverbial Simon Magus in the Clementine writings where the Apostle Peter explains that: "Simon Magus ...is a power of the left hand of God, and has authority to do harm to those who know not God..."   Peter then goes on and explains that Simon "...has been able to involve you in diseases; but by these very diseases, which have been permitted to come upon you by the good providence of God, you, seeking and finding him who is able to cure, have been compelled to submit to the will of God on the occasion of the cure of the body, and to think of believing, in order that in this way you may have your souls as well as your bodies in a healthy state."  First it must be recognized that disease, strife, hardships and sufferings, all serve a higher purpose.   But this is for the most part impossible for modern man to understand, because they possess no essential knowledge of the Natural Laws that returns to each soul/person the fruit of their own past actions.  And it is our own past actions that through the Natural Laws, has orchestrated the Conditions of each person's birth (see Conditions Of Birth).    @@@

The Laws  that were put into action and invoked in the Alpha of Creation, evolve all of mankind by returning back to him the fruit of his own actions.  Whereby mankind is perpetually confronting self -- the good, the bad and the saintly and the ugly evilness of his lower animal brutly nature.  Thus, provoking the question that has been posed on countless occasions: How can strife and disease be brought about by the "good providence of God"?   Which means that what man perceives to be bad and evil, has been invoked upon mankind directly by the Laws of God.   And thus the question also set before us is how can God raise up and imbue a person as personified in the personage of Simon Magus with the "authority" to inflict harm upon mankind who are portrayed as "...those who know not God"?   The personage of God in the Old Testament proclaims with respect to the source of what man calls evil: "I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the LORD, do all these things.'" (Isa 45:7 NKJ).   And in man's ignorance of the Laws, the vast majority of people are seen condemning what they do not understand -- and in his blind condemnation of what he fails to understand, he remains ignorant of the true cause of what he proclaims to be evil -- i.e., "Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?" (Amos 3:6 KJV).   Thus, there is nothing that exists in this world, that has not been orchestrated and brought about by the Laws of God -- i.e., "The LORD of hosts has sworn, saying, "Surely, as I have thought, so it shall come to pass, and as I have purposed, so it shall stand" (Isa 14:24 NKJ).   And until a man begins to understand the true source and purpose of what he calls evil, he cannot know anything of any true substance.   If, as Jesus confirms, that not even a single sparrow can fall to the earth apart from the Will of God, then the source and calamities of evil that befall mankind, are the result of the Laws that return to each person the fruit of their own previous actions.   Thus, Jesus warns the man who he previously healed by making him whole: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).   We must therefore ask: If our own actions can, and do cause "...a worse thing [to] come unto [us]", how is this tribulation brought about?  The answer is that there were Laws put into action at the very beginning of Creation which returns to each person the fruit of their own actions -- “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   And it is these Laws at work in the lives of mankind that mature the lost prodigal son -- driving him from the Alpha of Ignorance and Unknowing, to the Omega of Perfection and Enlightened Light -- enabling him to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination. 

 

Jesus was sent "...only to the lost sheep of Israel", because as a servant of the Right Hand, he was barred by the Laws from intervening in the lives of those who were under the dominion of the Prince of the Left Hand.   In like manner, it is near impossible to understand the Gospel account of Jesus and the Syro-Phoenician woman, without understanding what Peter stated in the above quotation with respect to the Laws.   Thus, it is written:  "For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet.  The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter.  But Jesus said to her, Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs.  And she answered and said to Him, Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children's crumbs.  Then He said to her, For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.  And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed" (Mark 7:25-30 NKJ).   Why did Jesus not immediately help her?   Why did he portray the woman as a dog?    What is the spiritual meaning of the children's bread which is served at the Table -- bread that cannot be eaten by those people portrayed as dogs?  Why did Jesus command: “Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine..." (Matt 7:6).   Because those who can be portrayed as dogs, are under the domain of the Prince or Power of the Left Hand -- which ultimately is a Power of Correction.   And, the Laws which were instituted by Creator-God in the beginning, inhibited Authorities of the Right Hand such as Jesus, from relieving the infirmities of those who sat down at the table on the Left -- people who Jesus portrayed as dwelling in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- and even existing in a type of Prison (see The Prison).   And with respect to the Two Princes, again Peter explains: "But that this is so, has been said even by the law in the person of God: ‘I will kill, and, I will make alive; I will strike, and I will heal. For, in truth, He kills and makes alive. He kills through the left hand, that is, through the evil one, who has been so composed as to rejoice in afflicting the impious. And he saves and benefits through the right band, that is, through the good one, who has been made to rejoice in the good deeds and salvation of the righteous."  

Where Peter explains "...that neither [Prince] should have power over any one whom they might wish to benefit or to hurt, unless first he had sat down at the same table with them",  it must be understood that the food that one receives at the Table with the Prince of the Left or Right Hands, is the knowledge or nourishment that is the foundation of the thinking, mindset and resulting lifestyle that is lived out by the lost prodigal sons.   Where it states in the Revelation that "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" (see Opening The Eyes Of The Heart - Rev 2:8-17), this "hidden manna" is the the Knowledge/Gnosis or the Divine Manna that can only be imparted to the seeker directly from the Indwelling Logos and True Prophet (see The True Prophet) -- who is the ONLY TEACHER that Jesus commanded to seek out and learn from.       

In prayer Peter states:  "Deliver me, O Lord of all, from Thy fearful judgment. Do not give the enemy power to swallow me up, and to become heir of my soul, as of that of him who is hanging on the left; for I see how the devil joyfully takes his soul, and his body disappears."   But Christians today are as the men of Nineveh of whom it is said: "And should I not pity Nineveh, that great city, in which are more than one hundred and twenty thousand persons who cannot discern between their right hand and their left?" (Jonah 4:11 NKJ).   For as it was said to Job: "Then I will also confess to you that your own right hand can save you" (Job 40:14 NKJ).   And in the Psalms: "You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore... Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; you will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me" (Ps 16:11;138:7 NKJ).   Which is the reason why Jesus said that those on the right will enter into life, while those on the left will inherit the tribulation of their deeds and ways: "Then He will also say to those on the left hand, 'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels" (Matt 25:41 NKJ)
 

 

 

 

 

 

  The Natural Laws - The Nature of Evil - Simon Magus: In the same manner that a person of wisdom knows that there is a Left and a Right to all things -- and the Left Hand of the scriptures is the written word of the scriptures which Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth" (2 Cor 3:6) -- while the Right Hand is the inner meaning that lies concealed beneath the allegorical cloak of the texts.   For the same reason that Paul stated that the Christian is not under the Law (Law of Moses), neither is the True Christian subject to the Left Hand of Correction.  

The punishment that is made reference to throughout the Gospels and the New Testament is the corrective power of the Left Hand -- a Power that returns back to each person the fruit of their words, thoughts, desires and deeds.  Therefore, the punishment that Paul makes reference to, is the effect of the Laws returning to each person the fruit of their own past actions -- i.e., “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peter states of the Two Princes (see The Double Edge Sword Of The Law And The Left Hand Of God): "But that this is so, has been said even by the law in the person of God: ‘I will kill, and, I will make alive; I will strike, and I will heal. For, in truth, He kills and makes alive. He kills through the left hand, that is, through the evil one, who has been so composed as to rejoice in afflicting the impious. And he saves and benefits through the right hand, that is, through the good one, who has been made to rejoice in the good deeds and salvation of the righteous."   And thus, when understood, it is the Left Hand of God that is the Power of Correction -- and returns to each person the substance of their own actions -- and on a secondary note, the substance of their thoughts and desires.   Therefore it can be said "As a man thinketh in hes heart, so is he" (Prov 23:7).    And his experiences of life are limited by the substance of the thoughts which he entertains. 

 

And in the same way that the Prince and Power of Correction lies with the Left Hand -- i.e., the Left Hand of God (see The Written Word Portrays The Left Hand Of God), which is explained in greater detail in a later subheading entitled Time And The Left Hand Of God -- the natural organic people of the earth who dwell under the dominion of the Citizen of the Far Country -- i.e., those who have yet to put on the required "wedding garment" and come to TheCall -- remain blind to both the Spirit, and the inner meaning of the scriptures.    Jesus portrayed this organic human blindness as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) --  which parallels Plato's account of The Cave (see Plato's Cave) -- and it is representative of the natural condition of the Laws which limit each person to the thought-vibrations of their heart and mind.    On the other hand, those who perpetrate evil actions on their brothers and sisters, dwell in that condition which is maintained by the Laws in what Jesus portrayed as The Prison.   

The Apostle Peter warns that the enigmas of the scriptures which in the Homilies of his disciple Clement he portrays as the "mystery of the books with the power to deceive", were intentionally inserted into the body of the text as a test to the reader.   Man, whose condition is maintained by the Laws in accord with the thoughts of the heart, is tested throughout the scriptures to see if he has prepared himself to be of a greater vision and understanding of what he perceives out of the written word.   Speaking of Simon Magus' ability to deceive the people, Peter is quoted as stating in the Homilies: “And with us, indeed, who have had handed down from our forefathers the worship of the God who made all things, and also the mystery of the books which are able to deceive, he will not prevail; but with those from amongst the Gentiles who have the polytheistic fancy bred in them, and who know not the falsehoods of the Scriptures, he will prevail much. And not only he; but if any other shall recount to those from among the Gentiles any vain, dreamlike, richly set out story against God, he will be believed, because from their childhood their minds are accustomed to take in things spoken against God. And few there shall be of them, as a few out of a multitude, who through ingenuousness shall not be willing so much as to hear an evil word against the God who made all things.   And to these alone from amongst the Gentiles it shall be vouchsafed to be saved. Let not any one of you, therefore, altogether complain of Simon, or of any one else; for nothing happens unjustly, since even the falsehoods of Scripture are with good reason presented for a test.”

With respect to what Peter portrays as "...the falsehoods of the Scriptures", Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”  And what this means is that when the reader encounters "...an evil word against the God" -- and believes the allegorical falsehood -- then this person has failed the test, and his heart and mind remains hardened by the Laws which return to each person the thoughts of their own heart.   

Peter portrays the Gentiles as being easily deceived, because they are accustomed to believing bad things about God.   Thus, the god of the Old Testament has been insightfully portrayed as resembling the Wizard of OZ -- i.e., a magical nut case behind the curtain who liked physical circumcision, genocide of non-Jews including killing every woman & child -- a god who made man, then repented he ever made man and killed everyone on earth but Noah and his immediate family -- a god who kills a man for trying to steady the ARK, a voodoo god who loves animal sacrifice and blood sprinkling, a god who sacrifices his son instead of himself. The scriptures are very clear, it’s all allegorical about the Kingdom within.   The reader is warned  in John 6:63, that reading the scriptures literally has no profit at all (“the flesh profiteth nothing”) and leaves the reader spiritually bankrupt : "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life".  

In order to even begin to understand the the Natural Laws of Creation that Intimately Interacts with all of mankind, the Higher Reality of the Soul, and the very objectives of the life man is living in this, God's Divine Schoolhouse, it is imperative to first correct one of the many grave misconceptions resulting from both the corruption of the Gospels, and modern Christian's inability to properly translate the Greek manuscripts and texts.  To begin let me state that the Jews have never celebrated a true spiritual Sabbath.  Neither has the Seventh Day Adventists.  The dogma of a Sunday Sabbath is a pagan fraud.   And to understand why I can make these statements, you must first comprehend the conflict between the Theists and Deists on what can be termed the Laws of Nature and Nature's God.  And why the reference to the Spiritual Sabbath was removed from the Gospels by the sun-worshiping Church of Constantine.  So, in the below I will demonstrate why the Deists were correct, and why both the Jews and the Christians don't at all understand even the meaning of the Sabbath.   Quoting from http://Ebionite.com/Easter.htm :

The scriptures were intentionally composed so as to purposely inhibit readers from reading and believing what is literally written in a linear interpretation.  Herbert W. Armstrong who was of course a literalist, proclaimed: There were no eye-witnesses to the resurrection.  Even so-called "apostolic fathers" had no source of information save that record which is today available to us.  Tradition, then, must be dismissed (see The Resurrection Was Not On Sunday).  Yet, Armstrong was wrong -- i.e, (1) the allegorical account was composed in this manner for an important reason; (2) and any seeker who prevails over their physical organic limitations, learns the truth about the scriptures and their allegorical nature and higher purpose. Therefore, if you want to know the Truth, you will have to either (1) ask one of the authors of the scriptures; (2) enter into Spirit and examine the actual historical record that is not recorded in the allegorical scriptures; (3) or seek instruction directly from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet (see http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org/#TrueProphet ).

While Armstrong from one perspective had it right, the greater problem is seen in the fact that he did not understand what the scriptures are presenting.  While the scriptures state that Jesus would be in the grave three days and three nights, only two days are presented in the literal texts.   Provoking both Armstrong and many other Fundamentalist Christians to develop a great many dogmatic theories as to why this contradiction in the scriptures exists.   Armstrong writes: A vital text proving that there were two Sabbaths in that week has been obscured by almost every translation into English.  Only Ferrar Fenton's version has this point correct. Turn to Matthew 28:1. In the common versions it says, "In the end of the Sabbath," or more correctly, "after the Sabbath." Notice that both of these renderings use the singular -- Sabbath. But in the original Greek the word is in the PLURAL.  Fenton renders it correctly by saying, "After the SABBATHS," although the remaining part of the verse he has not translated quite correctly.  In a foot-note to this text, he says, "The Greek original is in the plural, 'Sabbaths'."  When the scriptures are properly understood within the context of the Greek term mia ton sabbaton as stated at the subheading Spiritual Sabbath, the correct understanding would be rendered for first day of the week as "one of the Sabbaths". Quoting from the above subheading Spiritual Sabbath (see Spiritual Sabbath):
 

As noted in many places in this article, Eden is the embodiment of the Sabbath -- and it is the return to Eden while still alive in the body (see http://GateOfEden.com ), that is the true objective of the scriptures and the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.  From a true spiritual perspective, the Jews have never celebrated a Sabbath -- and what they observe, is an allegorical portrayal of the Sabbath that they lack the depth of understanding to comprehend the meaning of.  And this reality which is not understood by either the Jews, or the Sunday worshipping pagan Christians, is also presented in the meaning of the verse that was removed from the Gospel of Luke by the sun-worshipping fourth century Church -- i.e., "On the same day, He (Jesus) beholding a man laboring on the Sabbath, said to him: Man if thou knowest what thou doest, blessed art thou; if however thou dost not know, cursed art thou and a transgressor of the law" (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).  If the Passover is correctly embraced from a spiritual perspective -- in contradistinction to the allegorical passover of the Jews -- then the disciple has overcome, and achieved the next level of birth -- and to him, there is nothing but Sabbaths.  After the Celebration of the True Sabbath which can only be accomplished in the fulfillment of the Laws within one's self, there is no more counting of days, weeks, months and years -- i.e., "But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage? You observe days and months and seasons and years. I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain" (Gal 4:9-11 NKJ).  The Pharisees, who were condemned because of their carnal and ritualistic interpretation of the scriptures, celebrate an allegorical Sabbath that is of the flesh -- i.e., what Paul portrays as a "shadow" of the True Sabbath that is Spiritual.  The Disciples of Jesus are to strive to bring about the True Spiritual Sabbath of Completion -- and after you achieve this Spiritual Sabbath, there is no more days of the week -- but only the abiding eternal rest.  And this is why the Sabbath is portrayed as following the Passover in the Gospels, and the next day is portrayed as "one of the Sabbaths". Among other things, what this means is that there is absolutely no basis for observing the day of the sun-god -- i.e., Sunday -- except, of course, if you worship the sun-god in the manner of the pagan Church of Rome.  And the fact that you can't count the days where the Son of Man was in the tomb three days -- and make it the day of the sun-god -- simply because you read the scriptures in the same manner as the Pharisees -- totally alienates the believers of the Church from even the very objects and spiritual essence of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.


In order to celebrate and observe the Real Sabbath -- i.e., Spiritual Sabbath -- one must achieve the Final Stage of Birth which would constitute a return to Eden from the perspective of the fulfillment of the Laws and the reality of the Omega of Creation within one's self  And when the Ebionite Nazirenes attested to the fact that this is what the historical man Jesus accomplished within himself -- it is this fulfilling the Spiritual Sabbath wthin himself that the historical man Jesus accomplished.  To begin: Herbert Armstrong did not at all understand WHY the scriptures are an allegorical account -- simply because the article An Inconvenient Truth ( http://AnInconvenientTruth.org ) had not yet been written which explains the higher purpose and objective of the scriptures.  Mr. Armstrong had never known or spoken to the original authors. He did not believe in the Inner Kingdom -- or the reality that when the scriptures are used as the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ) and is turned within one's own mind and being, that mankind as the lost prodigal son possesses the innate ability to enter and return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination while still physically alive in the body-vessel (see http://GateOfEden.com ). Like the vast majority of Christians, Armstrong was robbed of the a more spiritual understanding of the scriptures by virtue of the corruption of the scriptures by the scribes of the Orthodox Church (see http://BibleCorruption.com ), and the later directives of a series of Roman Emperors (see http://reincarnation.nazirene.org/#emperors ) -- to the degree, that even those Words which were alleged to be spoken directly from God to mankind, were corrupted and changed in order to promote the Jesus-god of Pagan Rome.

What this means is that the whole bases of Sunday worship by the Christians is based upon a mis-translation and ignorance of the meaning of the Gospels. But, Constantine was a sun-worshiper -- and the Sunday celebration was literally forced upon HIS Church.  From a Jewish perspective, they fail to understand that what they are celebrating is an allegorical Sabbath that they don't understand.   While observing the (allegorical) Sabbath is good, I agree with the teaching that was removed from the Gospels: "On the same day, He (Jesus) beholding a man laboring on the Sabbath, said to him: Man if thou knowest what thou doest, blessed art thou; if however thou dost not know, cursed art thou and a transgressor of the law".  To better understand the Spiritual Sabbath in relation to what the Deists portrayed as the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, let me further quote from the above subheading The Two Creation Accounts :

Because the Deists understood both the Laws and the purpose of what was being conveyed in the two allegorical Creation accounts in Genesis, they understood that in the same way that the Father did not come rushing to the aid of his prodigal son when his son was in great need and being exploited by what Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country, neither does Creator-God tweak the Laws that were put into effect prior to God Resting on the Spiritual Sabbath. Faith-based believers not only fail to understand the reason there is two Creation accounts in Genesis, but neither do they understand the true spiritual reality of the Sabbath. Creator-God's work was completed in what is allegorically portrayed as the Sabbath -- and being Complete, there was no more work to be accomplished. Therefore, not only does the Genesis account portray Creator-God's work as being Completed on the Sabbath, but what is presented as God in the second Creation account, portrays God in a different name. God's Presence therefore, in all that follows the initial Creation account, is in fact the movement of God's Laws and the Natural Forces of Creation that was put into effect -- and this is confirmed in the disciples statement that allegorically, the Jews were a people who had "...received the law by the direction of angels and have not kept it" (Acts 7:53 NKJV).  But what does this mean?  Allegorically, the angels are representative of the personification of the Laws -- so it wasn't that a supernatural being handed the Law over to Moses -- but rather, that in the development of mind signified in the allegory of the text, the elevated consciousness enabled the mind to see, perceive and understand the higher reality of the Laws that organic man is blind to. That, as Paul states, they "...have not kept it", is because they have failed to bring about the Completion of the Sabbath.  In further making reference to the Law, Paul writes: "For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment" (Heb 2:2 NIV).

In what was allegorically portrayed as the Fall of Man, part of the soul became lost and entangled in the lower worlds which correspond to the lower aspects and realities of mind and being.  This was not due to any fault of our own -- but was a natural exploration of self as both God through us, began to explore the reality of Self.  An important statement of Paul remains ignored, because the whole Christian understanding of Creation, the concept of original sin, and the need for salvation, simply does not fit into the picture that Paul presents when he writes: "For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now" (Rom 8:19-22 NKJ).  Notice that when Paul portrays the Fall of Man, he states that this fall was forced upon the soul by Creator God -- i.e., "...For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it".   In the beginning, Spiritual Knowledge or Gnosis did not exist, because no experiential knowledge existed -- and the emptiness in the Laws acting upon the souls like a great vacuum, drew part of our souls into the void, and that part of us became lost in the lower worlds in an attempt to begin to know self.   God is in the process of coming to Know Self through the experiences of our higher soul-selves -- and our higher soul-selves is coming to know self through us.

In the allegorical account of Genesis, Adam is not a person -- the word Adam simply means man -- and like the parable of the prodigal son, is representative of the universal pattern and reality of all of mankind.  The idea of what is presented in the written text as the sin of Adam, is what is portrayed allegorically -- but the Fall was forced upon all souls as stated at Rom 8:19-22.   And this Fall was brought about because of the lack of Gnosis, or experiential knowledge.  But what is important to understand is that because of the state of inner division, part of the soul became lost in the lower kingdoms -- and as they began to experience independently, they took on a life of their own.   How could this happen?  Because each fragment is a holographic pattern of the whole -- which means that each fragment not only has the parts necessary to be independently conscious -- but at one level, is very much independently consciousness.

Again, the above words in Isaiah: "...So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it".    The Deists who understood the Laws, understood that Creator-God did not involve himself in the process that has been brought forth in the development of man in this world -- because Creator-God's labor was perfect and complete.    When an ovum is fertilized in the womb, it does not have to be re-fertilized at various points of development -- because the development of the embryo into a fetus, infant, adolescent and adult, is all brought about by the Laws.   Creator-God did not have to constantly tweak the Laws that were already perfect after His Labors were Perfect and Completed -- and this is why it in the parable that Jesus taught, it was the prodigal son who had to return to the Kingdom of the Father, rather than the Father having to come and get him in his trials and tribulations -- tribulations which Paul portrayed as the natural process of birth being brought forth by the Laws, as demonstrated in the above words: "...For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now"

  Clock Maker vs Jalopy Universe: In the same way that once fertilized, an embryo develops in accord with the Natural Laws, the same is true with respect to all of Creation.  When the Laws that were put into effect are understood, perhaps the best way to portray these Laws that the Deists portrayed as the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, is as a Spiritual Bio-Feedback machine that dynamically evolves each soul to perfection by intimately responding to our every action, reaction and failure to act -- and responds appropriately when the time is opportune for our greatest learning and advancement.  That these Laws were put into action in the Alpha of Creation -- and are the Perfect Works of Creator-God that is Dynamically connected to movement of man -- is a reality of the Laws that the core Deists attempted unsuccessfully to convey to the theists and organized religion.  Finally, it is ultra important to understand the primary difference between the Theist and Deist perceptions of God and the two allegorical Creation Accounts in Genesis (see The Two Creation Accounts above @ http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TheTwoCreationAccounts .

The Theist asserted that it was necessary for Creator-God to perpetually intervene in the day to day affairs of this world, while the Deist position was that Creator-God brought forth and initiated a series of Laws which He "...endowed the world at creation with self-sustaining and self-acting powers and then abandoned it to the operation of these powers acting as second causes."  What is said to be the Deist theology has often been portrayed as the Clock Maker Universe Theory -- i.e., (Quoting): "The clockwork universe theory compares the universe to a mechanical clock wound up by a supreme being, or initiated by the Big Bang. It continues ticking along, as a perfect machine, with its gears governed by the laws of physics, making every single aspect of the machine completely predictable. Before the emergence of quantum mechanics, many scientists believed that the Universe was completely deterministic in this way. ...This conception of the universe consisted of a huge, regulated and uniform machine that operated according to natural laws in absolute time, space, and motion. God was the master-builder, who created the perfect machine and let it run. God was the Prime Mover, who brought into being the world in its lawfulness, regularity, and beauty. This view of God as the creator, who stood aside from his work and didn’t get involved directly with humanity, was called Deism (which predates Newton) and was accepted by many who supported the 'new philosophy'."

If the Deist perception of God can be portrayed in the Clockmaker theology that once the clock is built and wound, it will thereafter function exactly as designed, the Theist perspective of God is that of a tinkerer who has pieced together a jalopy that is in need of constant intervention in order to make the thing work. The problem is that in the correct vision of Creation, both paradoxical opposite positions each possess degrees of truth -- and this truth can only be understood by a person of an evolved depth of vision and comprehension. In the parable of the prodigal son, the Father does not come rushing into what is portrayed as the Far Country every time his lost son is in need or suffering a fate that he has brought upon himself. And yet, when the parable is understood, it can be seen where both perceptions (the Theist and Deist) to some degree are equally true -- i.e., it is stated that the son had a change of mind: “When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ So he got up and went to his father." So it can be said that so long as the son remained attached to the thinking and lifestyle of this world which is portrayed in the parable as the Far Country, no intervention took place on the part of the Father. Yet, we do have this intervention at a certain point when the son began his journey in TheWay Home to the Kingdom of the Father: “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him." And since the parables are representative of the universal plight of mankind, this intervention was personal, and in accord with the individual's spiritual condition.

On what is portrayed as the Sabbath in the first Creation account, the Laws were brought fourth that would drive Creation from the Alpha of undeveloped ignorance, to the Omega of Enlightened Light.  And it is these Laws of Nature and Nature's God that man is interacting with (see The Living Bio-Feedback Organism below). While the prodigal son can interact with the Logos of Creator-God directly, this can only be accomplished by those who begin the journey Home by travailing in TheWay. Which means that in the traditional conflict between the Theists and Deists, the Deists are more correct than the Theists.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  The Labyrinth Of Laws and the Outer Darkness Of Mind And Being: This world is God's Schoolhouse -- the curriculum of each of our lives is laid out as a syllabus that is followed in accord with the choices we make within the curriculum. The Church Father Origen who was known as "the prince of Christian learning" in the third century, second only to the Apostles, writes that "...to every one according to his merits; nor will the happiness or unhappiness of each one's birth, or whatever be the condition that falls to his lot, be deemed accidental" (see Predestination @  http://ChristianReincarnation.org#predestination ). Why?  Why is the conditions of one's birth not to be deemed an accident? Because there are no accidents as the Atheist and Secular Humanist mindset promotes.  Origen then goes on and writes with respect to each person's station in life "...that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel [person] has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor." And, as stated in the foregoing, each person's birth into this life is determined by the Soul of that person's own past actions -- i.e., "...either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor".  Or, as stated by the Apostle Paul: "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).  And this same exact message is being presented to every person today, in our own time, in the very life that they are presently living.  Our life that we are presently living has been created by our past -- both in this life, and the previous lives our Soul has lived.   When the Labyrinth of the Laws that directs our paths throughout life presents us with choices, it is at this point only, where we are able to exercise freewill and choice. 

Many will of course say: How can this be?  If what the Church Father Origen states is true, and the life that I am living at present has been created and orchestrated by a more distant past that I don't remember, then how am I to know the truth?  If you remembered your more distant past, then you would continue to be the person you were, and this distant-memory would negate and undermine the present learning experience.   And as you encountered each test of life, you would in most instances make the same choices, and take the same course of action.  In other instances, the testing and learning in the present would be negated.   Each life that your Soul has lived, is unique -- and with each new and unique set of experiences, a greater diversity of wisdom is brought to the table of the life you are presently living.   Within you at the core of your Mind and Consciousness, is a storehouse of Will you draw upon this storehouse of wisdom within you, to make better and more enlightened choices when they are presented to you?   Can you in the present achieve a greater success that has alluded your Soul in the more distant past?   Can you set the stage for this greater success, in the future?      

The key word here is that the Laws which mold our life is very much as a Labyrinth that either holds us in a Loop until we learn certain lessons -- or based upon the choices we make, leads us onto a higher path through the Labyrinth of Laws that are designed to evolve us -- both mentally and spiritually.  In the same way that a teacher takes us one step at a time onto a higher educational level, the Labyrinth of Laws that direct our life -- Laws we constantly interact with -- insure that we have built upon the proper foundation that enables us to walk the higher paths of mental and spiritual achievement.  And this Labyrinth of the Laws is presented below in the subheading The Living Bio-Feedback Organism -- wherein I present the reality that the Laws of Creation intimately react to our thoughts, actions, desires and deeds.  And when Jesus told the person he had healed: "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV) -- he was making reference to The Laws that immerse each of us in our own personal Labyrinth that is molded by our previous actions, and has orchestrated the path and the choices of our destiny.  In the words of Paul: "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV). And this same exact message is being presented to every person today, in our own time, in the very life that they are presently living. When the Labyrinth of the Laws that directs our paths throughout life presents us with choices, it is at this point only, where we are able to exercise freewill and choice.

Most people make virtually no progress in any given life, because they get stuck in mental-loops based upon the cultural thinking of this world.  Quoting from above, This World As A Mental Womb : If what Paul and the other Gospel Authors stated is true, and there exist higher realities and dimensions of being that are totally inconceivable to the mind of the undeveloped faith-based believer (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ) -- and by virtue of the immaturity of the faith-based believers brought about by an embryonic condition of mind which Paul portrayed as the "natural" mind of man -- and the limitations of this embryonic condition of mind even inhibited Jesus from conveying the true meaning of the scriptures, and the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom to all but his inner core of disciples (see In The House http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#InTheHouse ) -- which means that the biblical authors were therefore powerless to explain in any detail and depth many of the most important Gospel teachings and concepts in the literal text of the New Testament -- then the spiritually mature author's of the scriptures who were themselves enlightened to these higher realities, remained virtually powerless to do anything more than to provide the people with a list of do's and don'ts -- so that the faith-based believers will be in a position where they will be better able to evolve to a mature understanding and comprehension of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay. To totally ignore these do's and don'ts, without knowing the consequence of one's choices and actions, is paramount to walking out onto a freeway blindfolded. The fact that the modern Christian dogmatically believes that it is not necessary to observe and put into practice these do's and don'ts, has brought about a condition of abject spiritual ignorance -- and in their walking what Jesus portrayed as the "broad-way", their own self-destruction.

In order to evolve the mind and spiritually advance, you must choose those paths created by the Labyrinth of the Laws that are in accord with the do's and don'ts laid out in the Gospels. Quoting from http://Sacraments.Nazirene.org : The Flawed Doctrine Of Perpetual Redemption totally ignores the many statements by Paul where he warns: "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).  Why did Paul make such a statement?  Because the original Gospel teachings in their original form was one of spiritual transformation -- a process that would evolve the mind of the seeker/disciple from their embryonic condition, to that of spiritual maturity and Wholeness -- and those who reject these teachings and fall back into the thinking and lifestyle of this world -- who willfully sin after coming to the knowledge of the Gospel message -- are not only unbelievers and apostates to the teachings of the Gospels, but in Paul's words these counterfeit believers crucify the Son of God afresh -- and, in total opposition to what is preached in the modern Churches, Paul warns that "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."

In the Original New Covenant Sacraments ( http://Sacraments.Nazirene.org ) Baptism was the required wedding garment to come to TheCall to the Wedding Feast.  And in accord with the Original Gospel Teachings, if a person knowingly sins after baptism, then they have defiled the Wedding Garment -- and there can be no more forgiveness of sins.  And I believe that Paul answers the question in the statement. (quoting from http://sacraments.nazirene.org/#SpiritualAbuseOfSacraments ): When Paul wrote and warned that whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord -- i.e., "Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself" (1 Cor 11:27-29) -- the question should be posed as to what constitutes a lack of discernment?  While a more exacting translation of the above is found in many of the older versions which state: "eateth and drinketh damnation to himself", few Christians who have been taught the modern man-made doctrines of the Church, are able to understand how a baptized and confirmed Christian can eat and drink damnation and judgment for their failure to properly discern the Lord's body.

With respect to Baptism being the required Wedding Garment (see http://Sacraments.Nazirene.org#TheRequiredWeddingGarment ): The Gospel teachings of Jesus and the New Covenant known as TheWay, has specific Sacraments -- and the spiritual significance of these sacraments are not at all understood today. In the parable of TheCall to the Wedding Feast, what is portrayed as the required "wedding garment" in the parable is in fact the sacrament of baptism.  But the original teachings on baptism was totally abandoned by the segment of early Gentile Church which portrayed itself as Orthodox, and it is this man-made dogma that has caused the original teachings on baptism to be very different than what is practiced today. In the Homilies of Clement who was the first century disciple of the Apostle Peter, quotes Peter as stating with respect to the sacrament of Baptism: "He has commanded us to go forth to preach, and to invite you to the supper of the heavenly King, which the Father hath prepared for the marriage of His Son, and that we should give you wedding garments, that is, the grace of baptism; which whosoever obtains, as a spotless robe with which he is to enter to the supper of the King, ought to beware that it be not in any part of it stained with sin, and so he be rejected as unworthy and reprobate." Contrary to the modern usage of the sacrament of baptism, according to Peter, once the "wedding garment" is received, if the person then willfully sins, then the wedding garment is stained, and there can be no further repentance -- i.e., you "...ought to beware that it be not in any part of it stained with sin, and so he be rejected as unworthy and reprobate."

The most popular and accepted scripture over the first three centuries was the Shepherd of Hermas (see http://nazirene.org/shepherd_of_hermas.htm ), which states that once one receives the sacrament of baptism which is the "wedding garment", there is only one opportunity for repentance from any future sins -- i.e., "For he that hath received remission of sins ought no longer to sin, but to dwell in purity. ...But I say unto you', saith he, `if after this great and holy calling any one, being tempted of the devil, shall commit sin, he hath only one (opportunity of) repentance."

Each person is moving through life following pathways that can be portrayed as a Labyrinth of Laws that has been set out to guide each person to their highest destiny in any given life. In accord with your present condition and level of spiritual achievement, each of us confronts a series of do's and don'ts that permit us to walk a higher path of the Labyrinth that the Laws have immersed us in the divine syllabus and curriculum of the life we are living -- and, as stated by the Church Father Origen, each person's curriculum is based upon our Souls previous accomplishments. Each of us interacts with the Laws at every interval of choice that we make. In the above example of Baptism as the required Wedding Garment, if we defile the Garment, then the Laws that monitor our movement close off those paths that would lead us to the Higher Paths of the Labyrinth. If in our choices we fail to follow the do's and don'ts set forth in the Gospels, then the Laws that monitor our progress close off those higher paths. Again, when Jesus said to the person he had healed "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV), he was making reference to The Laws that immerse each of us in our own personal Labyrinth that is molded by our previous actions, and has orchestrated the paths and the choices of our destiny. And when Jesus stated to the Jews that he who is without sin, let him cast the first stone, he also said to the women: "Go and sin no more.” Why? Because in not following and adhering to the Gospel do's and don'ts, the Labyrinth of Laws will close off those paths of life that lead the person into their Higher Destiny.

  Entering The Kingdom Of Man: We can't build upon a flawed foundation. When Paul states that organic "natural" man is of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness that is incapable of comprehending his own higher Soul-Reality, he was making reference to the reality that the mind must be matured and evolved in order to bring about the next stage of birth and enter the Kingdom of Man.  When a person of a "natural" mind portrays himself as a man, this is synonymous with a fetus being portrayed as an infant.   While it is true that a fetus has the potential to be born and become and infant, until the fetus is actually born, the fetus is in the process of developing enough to experience birth and become an infant.  The same is true when we are born into this world as a Cosmic Ovum Or Sperm (see The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm) -- which is holographically on the next level of birth within the process of the Laws of Creation.  In the same way that the fetus has an undeveloped human body that is in the process of physically developing in accord with the Laws of Nature, when we are born into this world we dwell in a mentally-infantile condition that through the interaction of the Natural Laws, we have the potential to bring about the next stage of birth -- i.e., Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God” (see Mental Womb).   Where our physical body can be portrayed as a cookie-cutter process, this would not be true with respect to the process of mental development.   Why?   Because the development of mind requires choice, freewill, and the living out of the choices we have made in order to learn through our experiences.  Therefore, there can be no cookie cutter interaction with the Natural Laws that bring about the next stage of birth.   While the Laws of Nature can provide a physical body for the Soul to inhabit, the development of mind requires a very different and complex interaction of the Natural Laws in order to respond to our choices, exercise of freewill, and the mindset and lifestyle we have chosen to live out.  

When Jesus taught in the parable of TheCall to the Wedding Feast that those who did not put on the required "wedding garment" would be cast into the "outer darkness" (of mind and being) -- i.e, "So he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?' And he was speechless.  Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'  For many are called, but few are chosen" (Matt 22:12-14 NKJ) -- and again: For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.  And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matt 25:28-30 NKJ).  The "outer darkness" is the womb of mother-earth -- and the requirement to bring about the next stage of birth is the "wedding garment" of spiritual maturity.    When rightly understood, what the Gospels portray as the outer darkness is parallel to the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions.

From a spiritual perspective, the most important of the Gospel teachings were removed from the New Testament (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).  In the words of Prof. Bart D. Ehrman in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, where he warns us that: "...theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy"   And this fact is confirmed to us  by Dr. F. H. Scrivener where he writes that: "In the second century we have seen too many instances of attempts to tamper with the text of Scripture, some merely injudicious, others positively dishonest". Scrivener states that "it is no less true to fact than paradoxical in sound, that the worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected, originated within 100 years after it was composed: and that Irenaeus and the African Fathers, and the whole Western, with a portion of the Syrian Church" used inferior manuscripts (F.H.Scrivener, Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament).    Dean Burgon quotes Gaius (AD175-200) who speaks of the source of corruptions that survive in the early papyri: "The Divine Scriptures these heretics have audaciously corrupted. Laying violent hands upon them, under pretense of correcting them." (Burgon, The Revision Revised, p. 323).   Eusebius (Eccleastical History), citing the second century Church Father Clement of Alexandria: "The worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected originated within one hundred years after it was composed."   In the words of Colwell (What is the Best New Testament Text?, p.119)  "The first two centuries witnessed the creations of the large number of variations known to scholars today.  In the manuscripts of the New Testament most variations, I believe, were made deliberately."   G.D. Kilpatrick (Atticism and the Text of the Greek New Testament, pp 125-131):  "Deliberate changes in all text types appear to antedate A.D. 200..as distinct from errors... all categories of deliberate alteration...  are present in both groups. Tatian is the last author of make deliberate changes. The vast majority of deliberate changes were older then A.D. 200.  They came into being in the period A.D. 50-200."

The result of the corrupted scriptures is seen in the fact that modern Christians believe they can fulfill the requirement of birth by calling upon Jesus as their Lord and Savior.   With the most important teachings on the Natural Laws -- the "outer darkness" as the womb of Mother-Earth -- and the path of TheWay that evolves the person and prepares them to clothe themselves with the required "wedding garment" -- fulfilling the journey of the prodigal son in this, the Far Country, that through the subsequent stages of birth enables the (prodigal) son to escape the "outer darkness" and be restored to the Inner Kingdom of the Father -- which is what the historical man Jesus accomplished when he fulfilled the Law within him.   With the corruption and removal of these important teachings, the modern believer no longer has access to the teachings of how the Laws of God interact with mankind daily, in order to enable the seeker to bring about the next stage of birth.

How does the Natural Laws interact with men and women to bring about the next stage of birth that would enable them to fully enter the Kingdom of Man?   In the below I will explore and explain in great depth how each person is perpetually interacting with the Natural Laws that test us -- and based upon the results of the tests presented to us, the Laws are designed to supply to us the stimulus and catalysts necessary to fulfill our Destiny and bring about the subsequent stages of birth.  Quoting from Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature http://SoulSelf.org#AnimalNature : When Jesus said that his disciples were his brothers -- and that they "...will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father" (John 14:12) -- what he was making reference to was not a faith-based believer who were the equivalent of a spiritual-fetus or infant -- but rather, those who had evolved through the stages of subsequent birth and had fully entered the Kingdom of Man.  Which raises the question: Are all people part of the Kingdom of Man who have yet to achieve the necessary maturity and subsequent stage of birth that is merely the potential of the life they are presently living? And if the potential is not achieved, then how are those people who failed to achieve the potential of the life they are presently living defined? 

The congregations of modern believers dwell in abject spiritual ignorance, because they fail to embrace the do's and don'ts of the Gospel teachings -- they either believe that as Christians they have a dispensation by virtue of their belief in the Jesus-god of Constantine (see http://TheTenWords.com ); or they bases their choices on the cultural mindset -- and because they tarnish the Wedding Garment, the Labyrinth of Laws has closed off the higher paths that would lead them to spiritual maturity and birth. In vain they read the scriptures while remaining at an "animal-soul" level of consciousness, failing to abide by and embrace the do's and don'ts set forth in the Gospel teachings. In the teachings on TheCall to the Wedding Feast, those who fail to put on the required Wedding Garment of Spiritual Purity, are cast into the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ) -- stating of those who failed to put on the Wedding Garment: "'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' For many are called, but few are chosen".   So, for the modern congregations to maintain that by virtue of their belief in the Jesus-god of Constantine, that they have a dispensation from the consequences of their sins and are not required to abide by the do's and don'ts of the Gospels, are themselves blinded by the binding of the "outer darkness" of mind and being. If they truly believed in the Gospel, then they would abide by its Commandments and Teachings.

    Living Bio-Feedback Organism: If what the physicist and Mystic in the above states is true -- that we only can see a fragment of reality -- a shadow-image that is, and can be, portrayed as a three-dimensional allegorical image of a higher twelve-dimensional unseen reality -- then we must pose the most important question: What is the purpose and objective of the life that we are presently living in a shadow-world?   The answer is very simple: Our physical birth was only the first stage of birth where we developed within the womb of our mother -- and having been physically born, we are now dwelling in the womb of Mother-Earth where the objective is to achieve the next stage of Mental-Birth -- often portrayed as Soul-Birth throughout these writings (see Master Index).   But herein lies the enigmatic problem -- i.e., to develop the mind, there must be freewill and choice -- in much the same way that when a student takes a multiple choice test, he is presented with a number of choices to make.   In the School of Life, if the person as an embryonic soul-image did not have to live out their choices, then no progress could be made with respect to self-development.  

Levels of instruction: In academia, if these choices were not presented to the student on a series of tests, then no real evaluation could be made with respect to the student's progress.   But, unlike the example of a multiple choice tests in school, each of us actually creates the syllabus of our future in accord with the choices each of us has made on the tests which have been presented to us.   Where the students in the schools of this world are often required to achieve a passing grade where a certain number of questions must be answered correctly -- often graded on a curve -- in the School of this world the only passing grade is to make all the right choices.   Why?   Because each Choice opens the door to the next level of school and curriculum choices.   Therefore, these tests which we encounter in this life are not only to ascertain the level of achievement we have accomplished, but also to develop us.   When rightly understood, this world can therefore be portrayed as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism that for the objective and purpose of learning and bringing about man's development, returns to each person the fruit of their own words, thoughts, desires and deeds -- not immediately as when we touch a hot plate -- but rather, in many instances this realm returns our actions back to us when a reversal of polarity has been brought about.   As stated in the Bible: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   Not immediately -- because that would negate the process of growth and testing.  If you were to hit someone, and you were immediately hit in the same measure you did to the other person, then you would simply refrain from hitting the other person.   But if the Laws of Creation brought about that condition which was reversed, only then would you as a victim of your own previous actions, learn the consequences of being hit.  

Few understand the depth of the statement: "He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; ...Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” (Rev 13:9-10 NKJ).   When the word "captivity" is understood as forcing your will upon another, only then can the reality of this world be understood.   There is not only physical captivity, but also mental captivity, philosophical, religious and cultural captivity, marital and gender captivity.   All of which must be understood within the context of: As you do unto others, the same will be done unto you -- "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets" (Mat 7:12).   And when the Law and the Wisdom of the Prophets is understood, whatever you do to others, will be returned and come back upon you.   Including the judgments you make of others -- i.e., "Judge not, that you be not judged.  For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you" (Matt 7:1-2 NKJ).   How is the Law that evolves us mentally and spiritually invoked?   By our own actions by virtue of the reality that this world is a subsequent-womb that is maintained by the Laws which develops and evolves us by acting as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism which returns to each person the fruit of their own actions -- not as a punishment, but in order to evolve and develop the mind -- enabling them to eventually bring about the next stage of birth.   Therefore, when this world is rightly understood, it can very much be portrayed as God's School House for his Prodigal Sons and Daughters.  

The role reversal that is brought about as a developmental experience by the Natural Laws, requires that the person be immersed in a learning environment -- and that learning environment necessitates what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being.   If you could observe the results of your actions towards others -- perceiving the hot-plate scenario that if you touch it, you will get burned -- then you would refrain from any negative actions towards others.   And no mental development would take place.   Only by experiencing your own actions towards others, can you eventually learn right from wrong and good from evil, apart from the threat of consequences for your actions.   In other words, you must develop the ability to do good for the sake of good -- to do what is right, because it is right -- to lend a hand to those who need a hand -- to treat others as you would yourself want to be treated -- with no expectation of reward.   Again, if you were able to see the consequences of your actions, your actions would be tailored to the results that you observed.   It would be like providing an answer sheet for a student prior to taking a test.   Moreover, if the student knew that the answer sheet was always readily available, then the student would not study at all -- and thus, no real learning would or could take place.   So in many ways what is portrayed in the Gospel as the "outer darkness" can be understood as a mental wall or barrier that blocks man's perception of both the causal-factors that initiated his experiences, as well as the consequences of his choices and exercise of his freewill -- in order to force the person to draw upon his inner reality of mind and being in making his decisions and projecting his course of direction in his life.   But herein lies the greatest obstacle to understanding the reality of both what is portrayed as the "outer darkness", as well as the analogy of Plato's Cave, as seen in the fact that as a society we are totally ignorant of the Inner Source of Reality that we can draw upon.    

On a positive note, if we understand the inherent properties of a holographic reality, we can then draw upon this knowledge to break down the barrier between what the physicist portrays as the "blemish" that results from the intersecting forces in the Field which is the Source of not only what we see, but all that exists.   And it was the knowledge of the properties of a holographic reality that enabled the ancient wise visionaries to perceive and understand the Source that organic man is blind to even the existence of.   If you want to drive a car, then you must begin by learning how the vehicle operates.   Then you must learn to navigate the roads, and the laws that control the flow of traffic, so you don't have a collusion.   In many ways the body we presently inhabit is a vehicle which our soul is using in this life -- and we must learn both how it operates, how to navigate the choices that are presented to us, and the Laws that control our Destiny.   The vast majority of people don't understand the higher workings of the body-vehicle, neither do they know how to navigate the choices presented to them, and they have no idea how to take control of where they are going and their ultimate Destiny.   And that organic man is inhibited by the Natural Laws from perceiving and understanding the true higher realities of the shadow-images he sees, is stated "In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: "'You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving" (Mat 13:14) -- and again in explanation of the blindness of the people Jesus replied to his disciples: "'though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand'" (Luke 8:10).  

While it is true that our modern physicists have been able to detect and determine the existence of the Source in the unseen Field and its relationship to the shadow-images which organic man sees with his physical eyes, these same physicists have not been able to break through the barrier between the seen and unseen Source in the manner done by the ancient visionaries.   And while all of mankind innately has the ability to perceive wholistically -- observing the source, the visual-physical effect, and the result of the choices presented to us -- neither our culture or academia is assisting mankind in developing these important latent and innate abilities.   In fact, our culture is in fact inhibiting mankind from arising to his full potential -- and preparing him to understand and navigate the labyrinth of choices he is presented in his life.   And while our culture and academia is in fact ushering mankind in the wrong direction -- and our faith-based religions have long ago corrupted their teachings to the degree that they do little to lead man in the right direction -- once the Natural Laws and man's higher Soul-Reality is understood, it is well within man's ability to prevail over his present dilemma as dwelling in the "outer darkness" of mind and being, and only being able to perceive the shadow-images begin danced upon the walls of the Cave of Illusions.

The truly wise man has the capacity to draw upon his inner sources of wisdom, and innately learn the great Truths that remain absent from our modern culture.   How?   The strength of a hologram is seen in the fact that because the pattern of the whole is replicated into each of the pieces within the hologram, if you understand the pattern, then you can apply this knowledge to every level of consciousness and being within the dynamics of the Whole.   From the perspective of practicality, what this means is that the physical is a pattern for both the mental, the spiritual, and ultimately, Creation itself.    And this is one of the truths of a holographic pattern of reality expressed in the word of the Gospel of Thomas in the teaching: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you."

In view of the foregoing, the Mystics who authored the scriptures presented an allegorical picture of the pattern and workings of human consciousness -- and they did this so that this essential knowledge would be preserved and used by those in the future who, as the prodigal son, came to their senses and began the journey to their Source of Consciousness and Being.   Thus, when rightly understood, the scriptures were and remain the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ) that must be turned within self, in order for the seeker to acquire the necessary self-knowledge and the Cosmology of Mind and Being that one must possess to make the journey to our Source.

The Soul of man which is our True Self, is a Being of Light ( http://BeingOfLight.com ) -- that is asexual and has no physical body as we do in this world.   In my own journey to the Soul, I portray our True-Self as dwelling in what I call the Realm of Souls.   Each of our souls began as a spark of the Divine.   Modern Christians fail to realize that their religion evolved out of Judaism, and Spiritual Jews have always founded their system of beliefs upon the concept of the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes.   The following quotation is taken from The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, under the heading of Souls, Transmigration of: “The doctrine of transmigration of souls, which was especially accepted by the Karaites… is generally attacked by Jewish philosophers, but is defended by Isaac Abravanel and Manasseh ben Israel.  It appears often in Cabala; it is found in organized form in the Zohar, it is further developed in the teachings of Isaac Luria (1534-1572), and in Hasidism it becomes a universal belief.   According to these teachings, all human souls have a common origin in the spiritual unity of the primordial man, sparks of which form the individual souls... The sin of Adam brought higher and lower souls into confusion; as a result, every soul has to pass through a series of incarnations... The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”.   In the Zohar, the foundational doctrine of Jewish Mysticism, it is written that: “All souls are subject to the trials of transmigration; and men do not know the designs of the Most High with regard to them… The souls must re-enter the absolute substance whence they have emerged.  But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”.   This reunion with God is the rebirth that was spoken of by Jesus to the Pharisee Nicodemus, “a ruler of the Jews”.  

When rightly understood, the forgoing portrayal of the journey of the soul which must "...develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them" at the core of our being which the ancients portrayed as the Indwelling Logos -- is an exact parallel to the parable of the prodigal son who must develop the necessary perfections and wholeness while journeying in this, the Far Country/Outer Darkness of Mind and Being.   But to even begin to understand how the soul develops, and how the mind deepens and expands, one must first understand the Holographic Divine Pattern of Mind.   When the Gospels use the term Father-God, we must also understand that the Male retains the pattern of "XY" -- which is the balance of Male and Female.   But all Duality in its essence, is Threefold -- which is the basis of the Doctrine of the Trinity.   So when the ancients portrayed the higher reality of the Logos, it must be recognized that the Logos is the Divine Expression of Mother/Father God -- and is the Mind of God.   And that the Logos dwells at the Core of our Being -- and man has the innate ability to enter the Presence of the Indwelling Logos -- and fulfill the commandment of Jesus to learn ONLY from the Indwelling True Prophet.

In the beginning as a spark of the Divine Mind, each soul retained the holographic pattern of male/female and third-force balance of mind.   And because of this balance, the soul itself could not develop and evolve.   Therefore, in the beginning ignorance prevailed, because in the Alpha of Creation, experiential knowledge did not exist.   And in order to bring about this experiential growth and development, the polarities of male/female had to be separated into male and female.   Thus, allegorically this was portrayed as Adam/Eve being separated into Adam and Eve. 

After eating the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil), the statement was made in the allegorical account of Genesis: "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever" (Gen 3:22-23).   Thus, the objective of life is to become nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life -- i.e., "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).   And respecting the Tree of Life it is written: "Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" (Rev 22:1-2).   With the final statement pertaining to the eating of the fruit of the Tree of Life in order to gain entrance to what is often portrayed as Spiritual Jerusalem in the words: "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" (Rev 22:14).  

When rightly understood, what is portrayed in the diagram of the Twelve Sphere Tree of Life at the right, is the Pattern of Mind.   But to be nourished by the twelve fruits, one must first achieve a condition of Wholeness.   What, then, is Oneness?  In the comparison between the amoeba and man (see Tower Of Babel Syndrome) -- wherein, while both can be seen as ONE, it must be understood that the consciousness of man would be extremely complex in comparison to that of the amoeba.  And it is the inner divisions of the mind of man that is responsible for this high-level complexity that elevates man above all the rest of the creatures of the earth.    But, this high-level complexity of the mind of man is built upon both the Holographic Divine Pattern, as well as the great diversity of mind presented when the Tower of Babel Syndrome is rightly understood. 

The great diversity of human thought is achieved through the Law of Opposites.   Not only is each of the outer columns of the Tree of Life/Duality opposite from each other -- as well as the upper and the lower being opposites -- but holographically, the pattern of the twelve is replicated and exists within each of the twelve -- down to what the scriptures portray as the basic of human consciousness as represented in the number 144,000.    And from the perspective of the Cosmic Mind of the Macrocosm, this means that each person who can be portrayed as a Neuron in the Mind of God, is in fact 1/144,000th of the whole -- and in accord with their position within the spectrum of the Pattern of Mind as represented in the Tree of Life, each person is of a unique fragmented vision and understanding of the whole as set forth in the Tower of Babel Syndrome (see The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind).   And when you further divide this individual state of consciousness across the spectrum of gender -- where male and female are opposites that when joined create a whole -- what you are left with is the virtually countless opinions and perceptions of man's reality that are all fragmentary and incomplete at best.   

The Positive Attribute Of A Holographic Reality: While the negative equation a holographic reality imbues the person with the illusion that they perceive the complete picture, on the positive side of the equation is the reality that what you observe in the pattern from a physical perspective, is also a replication of the pattern of mind, soul and spirit.   Which provides an enlightened understanding of the teaching in the Gospel of Thomas which states: Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..."   If you can imagine for a moment being on a tour of a Great Cosmic Mind -- wherein, each minute process is expanded and manifested so as to enable it to be closely examined -- and like "the forest for the trees", requires you to take a giant leap back in order to begin to perceive the Whole -- then from a holographic perspective, what you are seeing in the world are all the fragmentary processes that make up your own consciousness, mind and being.   Therefore, all that you perceive and observe in the outer world, is in fact a fragment and pattern of your own mind and being.   All the other people in the outer world are in fact reflecting back to you an aspect of self that you are perceiving from the perspective of the 1/144,000th point within the whole that you were imbued with when you existed as a one-cell embryo at conception (see The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind).  

Enlightenment Begins With The Process Of Understanding What You See: When you began your journey in this life both the sperm and ovum had to split, in order to become joined to their opposite polarity -- creating the embryo that was comprised of half the genetics of your mother and father.   While in the womb of your mother the embryo grew through the process of the primary cell splitting and expanding, and forming the body of the fetus.   And only when the fetus had matured enough to support life out of the womb, was it born into this world.   But our true self who is our higher soul-self is not imbued with the duality of male or female -- and yet, these male/female polarities are held in balance which enable the soul of each person to be manifest as a Being Of Light.   And from a holographic perspective, what this means is that when we were born into this world as male or female, what we were in fact is the next level of Cosmic Ovum Or Sperm (see The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm).    And in the same way that in accord with the holographic pattern of Creation the divided ovum and sperm of one's mother and father had to be joined together to bring about the embryo that would expand and manifest the physical body which would serve as our vessel in this world, our own expansion of mind and being can only be brought about with the joining of our opposite male or female polarity.   Which means that we are presently dwelling in what can be portrayed as The Womb Of Mother-Earth.  

In the Gospel account of when Jesus came to Nicodemus and proclaimed to him that one must be "born again" to enter the Kingdom of God, the enigma that is presented is the reality that one cannot bring about the process of birth apart from the joining of male and female.   And this fact of reality is confirmed in the 22nd saying of the Gospel of Thomas in the words: Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female ...then will you enter the kingdom".    Which provokes the age old question: Exactly what does it mean to make the male/female, husband/wife, one flesh?   The Gospel states: "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one flesh" (Mark 10:7-8).   But in the same way that when a human embryo is conceived, the embryo that is formed from the merger of the ovum and sperm must evolve and expand into a living physical vehicle that permits the soul to manifest in the physical, when you are born into this world, you have merely entered a new womb as a Cosmic Ovum and Sperm -- with the objective of bringing about the next stage of birth (see Cosmic Ovum/Sperm).   And in the same way that the embryo that is formed through the sexual interaction of male and female, the union of husband and wife as a Cosmic Ovum and Sperm must in the same way evolve into a vehicle on the next plane of man's higher reality.   Much as portrayed in the image on the right.   And while this process is the bases of all Alchemy and Mysticism, it is well within the construct of modern physics to prove the reality of the Divine Pattern as holographically represented in the microcosm of mankind. 

 

In the parable of the the two sons, the younger son who is often portrayed as the prodigal son, travels into the Far Country and squanders away his (divine) inheritance in what is portrayed as "riotous living".    Which causes him to fall under the control of what is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country -- which is often portrayed as the god or ruler of this world.    But what exactly is this inheritance that is being squandered away?   In the mysticism of Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, and Gurdjieff, all organic life exudes bio-energy or vital life-force.   In the same way that a plant in the process of photosynthesis, exudes oxygen that is then breathed in and utilized by all organic animal life, mankind exudes bio-energy that is then utilized by the organic life of this world as a form of nourishment.    What this means is that Nature is fed and living off the bio-energy exuded by the organic life that is supported by the environment of this world.   And in the same that in accord with the pattern of Creation, a multitude of sperm or ovum cannot join and form an embryo, it is the interaction of the male chromosomes with the female chromosomes within the joined embryo that cause it to expand and create from itself a fetus within the womb of the mother.   Let me restate this truth: It is the interaction of the chromosomes of the father, with the chromosomes of the mother, that causes the embryo to begin the process of expansion that ultimately forms the body of the fetus.  And what this means on the next level of man's holographic reality, is that when the man/male and woman/female are joined and made what the scriptures portray as "one flesh", that the bio-energy of man and woman interact within the union to initiate and bring about the process of expansion of mind and being.   And it is this condition of absolute balance of man and woman and the positive and negative polarities of Creation that is the basis of the symbol of the Yin and Yang.  

Spiritual Alchemy which is the transformation of the physical into the spiritual, is dependent upon the philosopher's stone which is feminine -- and it is the Union and Oneness of the male and female that is the basis of Higher Consciousness.   But on a cosmic level, it is the interaction of positive/negative as personified in male/female that enables the man and woman not to expel their natural bio-energy off into nature, and instead channel the vital life-force that is portrayed as man's divine inheritance, into the alchemical process of the expansion of mind and being that was an integral part of the original Gospel teachings as presented in the article in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” (see The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind).   

In the subheading Gender-Blindness And The Process Of Birth, I quote the book Active Consciousness - Awakening The Power Within, by Amy L. Lansky, where it is stated that: "Biologist Rupert Sheldrake's theory of morphic resonance also depends upon similarity in vibration. Members of the same species, being 'on the same wavelength,' are able to tap into information that pertains uniquely to them. And while members of an entire species might be able to tune into a fairly broad spectrum of frequencies (think of Carl Jung's notion of the collective unconscious that humans supposedly tap into), smaller, more tightly connected groups -- such as members of the same family or loving couples -- resonate in more focused zones of vibration; they have access to their own "private frequency.' In fact, Sheldrake goes even further and suggests that morphic fields can explain how human memory operates. Instead of being stored in our brains, he suggests that memories are stored in the morphic field. Our brains then pick them up via resonance, like radios tuning to their own private stations."
In the diagram on the left, we see the aura-field that encompasses both the man and woman individually, as well as forming the morphic field that has the capacity to manifest and join the two halves in Oneness.   In the diagram on the right we see a pictorial representation of the merger of the bio-energy that when joined, is no longer lost into nature -- but rather, is channeled within the dynamics of the union.    In the subheading entitled The Merger Of Opposites Into One, I demonstrate where the impressions generated by an evolving man and woman are in fact the food portrayed by Gurdjieff who built upon the foundation of Pythagoras and the esoteric Gospel teachings, to demonstrate that it is the merger of the opposite polarity male/female impressions that brings about the expansion of mind and being within the morphic field of the seeker/disciple.  

We must then pose the question: While male and female unions are as common as man and woman, why don't these unions initiate the next stage of birth which the mystics make reference to?   Because the union must not be limited to the physical -- but rather, the dynamic interaction of mind and spirit in a state of absolute harmony that is able to raise the two up to a higher level of being.   Thus, together they must seek to Know Self -- i.e., their true self -- while seeking Truth and the Inner Kingdom.   Why?   The answer is rather simple -- quoting from the subheading The Intuitive Mind Vs The Linear-Rational: In the introduction to the book Secrets of Mary Magdalene, Prof. Elain Pageles writes and quotes the Gospel of Philip: Simultaneously, the Gospel of Philip celebrates Mary Magdalene as manifesting the divine spirit, which this gospel calls the “virgin who came down” from heaven. When Christians spoke of Jesus “born from a virgin,” this author agrees—but refuses to take it literally. So some people, he says, take this literally to mean that Jesus’ mother became pregnant apart from any man, apart from sexual intercourse. But this, he says, is the “faith of fools” who fail to comprehend spiritual matters (although, as we note, it can be seen in the birth narratives offered in the New Testament gospels of Matthew and Luke). Instead, continues the Gospel of Philip, Jesus was born physically, just as all humans, as the son of biological parents. The difference, says the author of this gospel, that he was also “born again” in baptism--born spiritually to become the son of the Father above, and of the heavenly Mother, the Holy Spirit.   That one of the primary objectives of this life is to bring about and achieve the next stage of birth -- a non-physical birth which is allegorically portrayed as a Virgin Birth -- should be of primary importance to all people.   

In the same way that Peter as representing the (male) linear-rational spheres of mind in the above diagram of the Tree of Life, states of the intuitive visions and wisdom of Mary Magdalene:  "...These are certainly strange ideas", it is a fact that it is the lopsided development of what Einstein portrayed as the linear-rational servant that inhibits the development of the intuitive-gift -- i.e., as seen in Einstein's statement that “The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”     Without the balanced development of the intuitive, the linear-rational which only senses outwardly, arrives as a point where it becomes what can be portrayed as flat-lined -- which in turn inhibits the further development of the linear rational servant from itself maturing beyond organic limitations.   And herein lies the great obstacle to human development that linear-intellectuals don't at all understand -- i.e., the reality that the linear programming of the mind which is the agenda of our educational systems -- including the reading of books and traditional study -- only serves to inhibit the development of the intuitive spheres of mind -- and it is the lack of balance between the inward looking intuitive and the outward looking linear-rational that inhibits the development of the mind beyond a certain very shallow organic physical level of maturity.    Further, what we are presented with are a number of paradoxes that have confronted man since he first stepped foot on the earth.   Thus, these proverbial questions must be confronted: Is the mind of a child empty?   Or, does a great source of knowledge already exist within the mind of the child that must be tapped into?   Do you instruct a child through rote programming in the manner of our educational systems today?   Or do you guide the child into an environment of self-discovery?

The problem is seen in the fact that the linear-rational servant can only look outwardly -- and not only remains totally ignorant of an inner reality that it is blind to -- but it demands that all of mankind ignore and even reject the higher causal reality that can only be sensed and understood through the development of the intuitive centers of mind.   Like the tip of the proverbial iceberg, what is observed protruding out of the water is very small in relation to the immense body of ice that is beyond man's normal scope of vision lying beneath the water line.   And because our culture and linear learning environment actually inhibits the development of the intuitive, it remains atrophied and latently embryonic and immature.   This is seen in the fact that when the leaders of the Jews (Pharisees) asked Jesus when the Kingdom of God would come upon the earth in the manner that they believed it would, he told them that it would never come upon the earth so as to be seen with their eyes (that look outwardly), because the Kingdom already exists within them (see http://GateOfEden.com ) -- and it is accessed through the development of the intuitive spheres of mind that are positioned to look inwardly -- which then must be balanced with the outward looking rational linear.  

The proper development of the mind to eclipse what can be called organic human limitations, is dependent upon the interaction of the linear and intuitive spheres of mind.   But when the intuitive perception is inhibited, and development is suppressed, even the linear is flat-lined from any development beyond what is portrayed in the Gospels as carnal and restricted consciousness.    The linear mind of man remains limited in its development, because the intuitive remains infantile and shackled in a captive environment where it is only permitted to express itself in linear terms.  While the inward looking intuitive has the potential to access higher consciousness and states of mind and being, it is unable to arise to its intended potential because of the shackles placed upon it by a thoroughly domineering and controlling linear culture.    Like a woman who in many Islamic cultures are forced to dwell in an imprisoned world beneath a Burka -- not permitted to openly express herself except when accompanied by a male relative -- totally deprived of the ability to openly speak on her own behalf -- the natural expression of the intuitive mind has been so impeded by our linear-driven culture, that it has remained undeveloped and unreliable as a resource (see Opening And Unlocking the Mind).   Because the male-linear as portrayed as the portrayal of Peter takes the position that "...These are certainly strange ideas", when the perceptions of the feminine-intuitive is encountered, the merger of impressions can never be brought about -- thus, flat-lining the union at a very low-self carnal perception of man's true reality.  

The Twelve Within The Twelve: Holographically, the pattern of the whole is replicated into each of the twelve spheres of mind as represented in the Image of the Tree of Life at the right.   What this means is that 1/12th of each sphere, is the vibration of the bottom Earthly (carnal/organic) Kingdom sphere.  And in the physical union of man and women, the energy that arises through the mind as represented in the pattern of the Tree of Life, is limited to the carnal/organic 1/12th of each of the upper spheres.   Thus, with the exception of the exchange of energies, no meaningful expansion of mind can take place -- and the vast majority of bio-energy or vital life-force, is lost into Nature.  

More importantly is the fact that in (carnal) organic man, the whole of the person's thinking and perception of reality is limited to that Earth-sphere.   Which is why the multitude of people are portrayed as blind and unable to comprehend the concepts and teachings pertaining to the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom (see Gospel Mysteries).    And why in the Gospel account, the majority of people are portrayed as being "without" and only capable of being taught in the enigma of parables, while those who have embraced the process of transformation were spoken of as being In The House (see In The House).   The Gospel accounts state that Jesus only spoke to the multitude of hearers in the enigma of parables, it is imperative that we recognize that Jesus did not, and could not, speak and teach plainly to those who are portrayed as being "without" the House -- i.e.,  "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34 NKJV).    The word translated "explained", in the phrase "And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples", literally translated from the Greek into English means to "unloose or untie" -- i.e., what has been "bound or sealed up" -- and "what is obscure and hard to understand" (from Thayer's Greek Lexicon).   And the word translated secret or mystery, makes reference to an esoteric knowledge that can only be revealed spiritually to one who is "in the House", because it is beyond the organic comprehension of those who are portrayed as being "without", or "outside" the House.    The term "open and unloose" the mind, is was also used in the Gospel as the path to entering the Inner Kingdom (see Open & Unloose The Mind).

In the same way that the interaction of the chromosomes derived from the father interact with the chromosomes derived from the mother within the embryo in the process of expansion which forms the body-vessel, on the next level of the holographic reality, the vital life-force from the male interacts with that of the female, bringing about the uniting and expansion of mind -- creating the Third-Force of higher reality as portrayed in the image on the right.   And this manifests what is portrayed above as the "morphic field" that creates an atmosphere like environment of mind and spirit that immerses the male and female halves that make the husband and wife "one flesh".    And as the husband and wife begin the alchemical process of expansion and deepening of mind and being, instead of the bio-energy being lost into nature, the vital life-force is instead channeled within the body and mind of the joined husband and wife, and is instead utilized to bring about the transformative next stage of birth that was portrayed by Jesus as necessary to entering the Kingdom -- i.e., the return of the prodigal son to his Source.  

The Gospel of the Nazirenes preserves an important teaching that was removed from the Gospels published by the Church.   In this saying makes reference to the preservation of the male seed -- i.e., "My work is to teach and to heal the children of men, and he that is born of God keeps his seed within him."  Why keep one's seed within one's self?   That seed is the power of regeneration -- and one can squander it away on "riotous living" in this, the Far Country -- or one can utilize this bio-energy for the regeneration of self.   In view of the fact that the male retains the original pattern of "XY", there exists the prospect of self-generation.   But this is very difficult -- and is totally contrary to the Laws of Nature.   Far more easy is to live as husband and wife in a Divinely Consecrated Marriage, where the seed/bio-energy is totally utilized within the construct of the Union for the expansion and deepening of the man and woman's mind and being.  

As stated in the above, in the conception of the physical body in the form of the embryo in one's mother's womb, the sperm and ovum must split in order to retain the human 46 chromosomes-- i.e., 23 from the mother, and 23 from the father.   But this 46 chromosome limit while in a divided state, limits the person to that level which can be portrayed as organic human consciousness.   Further, from the perspective of a holographic allegorical pattern, the initial splitting of the sperm and ovum can (within the pattern) be portrayed as the separation of Adam and Eve within the physical womb of the mother.   In contradistinction, when a husband and wife enter into a Divine Marriage -- creating a Morphic Field that forms a type of atmosphere in which they personally dwell -- a Morphic Field that insulates them from the rest of mankind -- they are then returned to the original 92 chromosomes which, prior to splitting to bring about human conception, can be portrayed as "XYXX".   And it is the interaction of the husband and wife on this 96 chromosome level of being within the Embryo of the Morphic Field which was formed by the Divine Marriage, that enables the husband and wife to expand beyond the organic human level of consciousness -- as stated in the 22nd saying of the Gospel of Thomas in the words: Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female ...then will you enter the kingdom".  

In Organic Man, the vital life-force which begins in the lower Earth Sphere, rises up into the Foundation Sphere where it is then tested.   The Foundation Sphere is connected to the Soul-Matrix, and is the seat of who you are based upon the accomplishments of all the past lives that your higher soul-self has lived (see Soul-Symphony - Time - Soul-Octaves - Spiritual Cathedral).    The Foundation Sphere can be portrayed as being strongly influenced by what can be called each person's Spiritual DNA.   The Church Father Origen wrote that: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).   Those souls who have accomplished much, will be able to conserve and channel more vital life-force within them -- thereby possessing greater insight and understanding of what they see and understand.    Those who can be portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son as having squandered away their inheritance on "riotous" living -- expelling their bio-energy on the things of this world -- because the energy can't be balanced in the Center (Tree of Life), it moves out into the lower spheres of the Tree of Duality.   And if it is (male) Earth-Logic or (feminine) Earth-Intuition, it lacks the balance to be channeled within, and the bio-energy becomes lost into Nature.   Thus, the outer columns of the Tree of Life which are the True of Duality, generate thoughts and impressions that are portrayed in the allegory of Genesis as the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality that the eating of which brings death.      

As stated in the above, the Linear-Logic which is male, and the Intuitive which is female, not only perceives the world differently, but often from opposite and sometimes conflicting perspectives.   Yet with all paradoxical opposites, each side of the equation is not only equally valid -- but in the Divine Design is intended to be resolved when the third-force balance of Mind is elevated to a higher plane.    And when rightly understood, all man and woman need is each other -- developing and raising up both the Linear and the Intuitive into a state of Mental and Spiritual to where the Third-Force of Mind exists on a Higher Enlightened Plane

  Every Day Is Judgment Day - The Folly Thereof: When religious leaders think of Judgment Day, they imagine a day of reckoning after they physically die where they are taken before the thrown of God, and their lives are evaluated and judged.  Since their rhetoric comes into the equation that all people are sinners, they imagine that the good in their lives will be evaluated along side of the bad -- that their beliefs in their god will be brought into the equation and seen as a type of dispensation and free pass -- and that they being judged by the standard of mankind, will attain a passing grade because they are clearly better than many others -- and having attained a passing grade, this will permit them to go on to Glory.   Paul portrays dogmatic-thinking such as this as "milk" intended for "babes in Christ" who are yet too immature to comprehend man's higher Soul-Reality and the Mysteries of the Kingdom.  

When Paul warns the baptized and committed Christians at Corinth who he, himself, originally instructed, that they were yet too carnal in their developmental level of mind to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospel -- which is often referred to as the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God -- is representative of a reality that Christians ignore to their own spiritual demise.  In contradistinction to modern Christian dogma whereby development of mind and the acquisition of knowledge has been totally removed from the equation, Paul then conveyed to the faith-based Christians that if he was to speak openly to them, that that they would judge and even condemn this higher reality of the Spirit as absolute "foolishness" -- i.e., “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).   Spiritually Discerned of course means that there are mysteries that can only be revealed to those who are of a "spiritually mature mind".  Thus, it is imperative to ask the question: What is the "natural man"?     The condition of mankind that Paul is making reference to, would just as well be portrayed as "organic" -- or, of the physical body.   The "natural man" , is the "organic" human being who Paul warns is of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness ( http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ) -- and the concept of Judgment Day is a prime example of organic man's inability to comprehend his own true reality. 

Which provokes the question: Does it matter?   An excellent answer to this question can be drawn from the writing of St. Augustine in De Doctrina Christiana where he states of the faith-based Christians who have not yet achieved an enlightened and mature state of mind: “He is a slave to a sign who uses or worships a significant thing without knowing what it signifies..."   While it is impossible to convey to undeveloped faith-based Christians man's true soul-reality as Paul states, important allegorical symbolism is set before organic man in order to invoke thought and contemplation -- which contemplation acts as a catalyst to initiate the development of mind with the objective of bringing about a condition of maturity.   In this case, the allegory of Judgment Day has been many times set before the believing communities in order to cause them to consider their words and actions in their daily life.   The idea that they will be held accountable causes self-examination and induces the the faith-based believers to evaluate and judge the life they are presently living.   And this self-examination is absolutely necessary, in order to begin to evolve to a more spiritually mature condition of mind where the person would be able to discern and comprehend the higher soul-reality that untransformed faith-based Christians are incapable of understanding.   St. Augustine then can be seen making reference to Paul's portrayal of organic man as being of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness when he states: “What the apostle says pertains to this problem: 'For the letter killeth, but the spirit quickeneth', that is, when that which is said figuratively [allegorically] is taken as though it were literal, it is understood carnally. Nor can anything more appropriately be called the death of the soul than that condition in which the thing which distinguishes us from beasts, which is the understanding, is subjected to the flesh in the pursuit of the letter. He who follows the letter takes figurative expressions as though they were literal and does not refer the things signified to anything else” (De Doctrina Christiana).  

Paul and the other biblical authors were forced to present higher wisdom that was inconceivable to the mind of "natural" organic man in a series of (figurative) allegorical images and symbols, in order to initiate the believers development of mind and spirit.  Further, Augustine portrays the mental gulf that exists between the faith-based believers and the spiritually developed and mature Christian in his reference to "natural" man as a beast who walks in the outward form of Man -- i.e.,  "...when that which is said figuratively [allegorically] is taken as though it were literal, it is understood carnally. Nor can anything more appropriately be called the death of the soul than that condition in which the thing which distinguishes us from beasts, which is the understanding, is subjected to the flesh in the pursuit of the letter".   Organic "natural" man who is three-dimensional in his limited thinking -- is of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness that is ruled over by his lower animal nature -- and is not capable of comprehending the higher twelve-dimensional reality portrayed in the allegories set before them.   And in their failure to seek the deeper meaning of both the Gospels and the higher reality of the Soul, they bring upon themselves in the words of Augustine, the "death of the soul" -- imposed upon them in their blindness wherein they see only the literal text of the scriptures.  

A man of true intellect would want to know why mankind in his organic condition, would reject what Paul calls the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of God as absolute utter "foolishness"???   To the degree that when Paul states that he was "..caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor 12:4-5 NKJ) -- an intelligent man would immediately question as to why "...it is not lawful for a man to utter" what a Disciple who enters the Kingdom sees and experiences?   The answer: Because this higher soul-reality is inconceivable to his undeveloped mind.  In his Epistle to the Trallaus the first century elder Ignatius speaks of the Mysteries of the Gospel and the Kingdom, and writes: “Might I not write to you things more full of mystery?  But I fear to do so, lest I should inflict injury on you who are babes.  Pardon me in this respect, lest, as not being able to receive their weighty import, ye should be strangled by them”.  The only way that Ignatius could have written these words, was if he, himself, understood what was beyond the comprehension of the organic mind of the believers of the simple faith.   And while he states that he had himself progressed to the point where he understood what was incomprehensible to the organic mind of man, he also confesses that though he is aware of the minor mysteries, he is not yet “by any means perfect, nor am I such a disciple as Paul or Peter”.   In the analogy of Plato's Cave, those who escaped this three-dimensional realm and returned, were rejected as "mad-men" when they attempted to convey to those who were still prisoners in the Cave what they learned and experienced when they escaped the Cave.

If Ignatius or the other early Church Fathers who knew and had received the knowledge of the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God were with us today, what profound higher knowledge could they speak regarding the true teachings of Jesus that believers today would be “strangled by them” To the degree that Paul proclaimed to the Christians at Corinth: “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 NAS).   Thus, these believers could only be taught the most basic exoteric doctrine of a quasi-historical allegorical account of Jesus Christ and him crucified (1 Cor 2:2), because they were not yet spiritual men -- but rather, they were men of flesh and still very much what Paul portrayed as “babes in Christ”.   Paul then explains that: “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able” (1 Cor 3:2 NAS).   And that for the most part the authors of the scriptures were forced to use the common believers as a type of mule that preserved and carried with them a Spiritual Trojan Horse to be understood only by the few whose mind and being were prepared to understand the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom, is a system that has been in effect since the beginning (see An Inconvenient Truth).  If all that Paul could write about was the allegorical "milk" of the Gospel -- i.e., a system of allegorical forms and symbols which possessed and concealed a deeper meaning of mind and spirit that was beyond the comprehension of the untransformed mind of organic man -- then those who blindly assume that they understand the true meaning of the Gospel which could only be revealed to those who had evolved their mind and thinking to a mature state -- then those who ignore this warning and base their beliefs on the written word, are a foolish and misguided people.   And this is true of blind believers, as well as blind and foolish critics of the Gospels and religion.  

In my day to day interactions with the vast majority of religious people, it is virtually impossible to convey to the ordinary person the reality of the Laws and the true meaning of the allegorical portrayal of Judgment Day.   The problem is this: There is no judgment day as envisioned by most religious systems.  And when rightly understood, EVERY DAY IS JUDGMENT DAY.  Why?  In a Holographic reality where each subsequent level is molded by the same pattern, level upon level, what is true of the physical and the process of physical birth, is in like manner true of the mental and the process of mental birth, and is also true of the spiritual and the spiritual birth, and is further True of the Final Stage of Birth which was accomplished by the historical man Jesus.  In the same way that if a fetus fails to develop it is usually miscarried and never evolves to the level where it can be born, this realm is the womb of Mother-Earth where the next stage of mental-birth is brought about (see above Mental Womb ) -- and to clarify an essential point, let me copy a paragraph from above out of the subheading The Labyrinth Of Laws :

Each person is moving through life following pathways that can be portrayed as a Labyrinth of Laws that has been set out to guide each person to their highest destiny in any given life.  In accord with your present condition and level of spiritual achievement, each of us confronts a series of do's and don'ts that permit us to walk a higher path of the Labyrinth that the Laws have immersed us in the divine syllabus and curriculum of the life we are presently living -- and, as stated by the Church Father Origen, each person's curriculum is based upon our Soul's previous accomplishments. Each of us interacts with the Laws at every interval of choice that we make.  In the above example of Baptism as the required Wedding Garment, if we defile the Garment, then the Laws that monitor our movement close off those paths that would lead us to the Higher Paths of the Labyrinth. If in our choices we fail to follow the do's and don'ts set forth in the Gospels, then the Laws that monitor our progress close off those higher paths. Again, when Jesus said to the person he had healed "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV), he was making reference to The Laws that immerse each of us in our own personal Labyrinth that is molded by our previous actions, and has orchestrated the paths and the choices of our destiny. And when Jesus stated to the Jews that he who is without sin, let him cast the first stone, he also said to the women: "Go and sin no more.”   Why?  Because in not following and adhering to the Gospel do's and don'ts, the Labyrinth of Laws will close off those paths of life that lead the person into their Higher Destiny.   We can't build upon a flawed foundation.  When Paul states that organic "natural" man is of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness that is incapable to comprehending his own higher Soul-Reality, the mind must be matured and evolved in order to bring about the next stage of birth and fully enter the Kingdom of Man. Quoting from Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature http://SoulSelf.org#AnimalNature : When Jesus said that his disciples were his brothers -- and that they "...will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father" (John 14:12) -- what he was making reference to was not a faith-based believer who was the equivalent of a spiritual-fetus or infant -- but rather, those who had evolved through the stages of subsequent birth and had fully entered the Kingdom of Man. Which raises the question: Are all people part of the Kingdom of Man who have yet to achieve the necessary maturity and subsequent stage of birth that is merely the potential of the life he is presently living? And if the potential is not achieved, then how are those people who failed to achieve the potential of the life they are presently living defined?

While each of us is born into a human body -- being ruled over by our lower animal-nature (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature  ) -- in the same way that an embryo has the potential to be physically born and emerge out of it's mother's womb, the fetus is not considered a human person until it is born.  The same is true with respect to the fact that we are born into this realm (Mother-Earth) with the potential to develop and be born into the Kingdom of Man -- only if like the fetus, we develop and complete the process of birth.  And while we think of ourselves as already being man (male or female), while we have a human body, our consciousness is at an "animal-soul" level -- and like a fetus, it must be evolved to a level of maturity that enables us to fully enter the Kingdom of Man.  As stated in the 22nd saying of the Gospel of Thomas: They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"  Meaning, you must become a child of the next level of subsequent stages of birth.  And while faith-based Christians don't understand the teaching, this is the meaning of the statement: "Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it” (Mark 10:15).  Which is why Jesus addressed his disciples as children in the words: "Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God" (NIV).   The disciples being children of the Kingdom -- i.e., Ebionites being a "poor one" to the ways, thinking and lifestyle that makes people rich in the ways of this world -- which is portrayed by Jesus as the broad-way of self-destruction.

In failing to understand the reference to the children receiving the Kingdom, the Church has attempted to dogmatize this important teaching to mean that a child must be baptized.  But such a man-made dogmatic interpretation is in total conflict with the original teachings on baptism as the "Wedding Garment" that the seeker/disciple must put on to gain entrance into the Kingdom.   In the original teachings, if the person who has been baptized willfully and knowingly sins after receiving the sacrament of baptism, then there is no sacrifice for their salvation -- as explored and demonstrated at http://Sacraments.Nazirene.org .   And this original teaching is demonstrated by the ignored statement of Paul: "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on the ir own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).   It would of course be impossible for a parent to have their child baptized into maintaining a sin-free life.  And because the faith-based (Gentile) Christians who portrayed themselves as Orthodox -- in contradistinction to Spiritual/Gnostic -- they attempted to dogmatize what believers of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness (immature "babes in Christ") were incapable of comprehending.   And because they have been inhibited from the very process of development because of the dogmatic limitations of the Church, modern Christians today are incapable of spiritually mature comprehension -- i.e., "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ).   In the same way that Paul stated that the faith-based believers who were still of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness were incapable of comprehending what could only be understood by someone who had evolved their mind, experienced the next stage of birth, and where Children of the Kingdom of Man, the reference that Jesus made to receiving the Kingdom as children, had absolutely nothing to do with baptizing newborns and infants. 


Judgment Day - Evolving To Maturity Of Mind And Being: "As a man thinketh in his heart, he is" (Prov 23:7).  That the Laws constantly interact with the Thoughts of the Heart -- which Thoughts of the Heart present a vibratory frequency to the Laws within which we are immersed -- which vibratory frequency of mind then controls the paths presented to us in the Labyrinth of Laws through which we continually travel.   And this is the reality behind the statement: "But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment" (Matt 12:36 KJV).  The vast majority of faith-based Christians would simply discard this statement -- after all, in their concept of Judgment day, would the number of "idle words" spoken be tallied up against the person?  And while this Gospel statement is generally ignored because it is not understood, what is applicable to every person is the statement: "If I had not come and spoken to them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin" (John 15:22).   Which means that with the publication of this original teaching on Judgment Day, every Christian is responsible for the Truth and seeking in TheWay.

The thoughts and thinking pattern of an un-evolved person who is ruled over by their lower animal nature, presents to the Laws through which they interact, the level of their immaturity or evolved-maturity.   No being (angel or otherwise) is monitoring the words of each person to see if they are idle -- as the Gospel account of Jesus states above.   But our words and out thoughts interact with the Natural Laws in this, the womb of Mother-Earth, to monitor our level of development -- mentally nourishing the evolving mind, level upon level of development.   The vibratory frequencies of an unevolved person is generated out of their lower animal nature -- and this is why they are portrayed as "beasts who walk in the form of man" (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature  http://SoulSelf.org#AnimalNature ).   In contradistinction, someone who has begun to achieve a level of maturity, presents the degree and level of Wholeness they have thus far achieved to the Natural Laws they continually interact with.  That within us we have a lower carnal earthly nature and a higher spiritual nature -- and our thoughts must connect the lower-earthly with the upper-heavenly within us, is the reality of the statement: "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5 NIV).  That we must prevail over our lower animal nature is why it is written: "…bridle the whole body" (James 3:2 KJV).  Which is the basis of the commands "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry" (Col 3:5 NIV) -- with the warning that “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).   And when it is realized that the Book of the Revelation pertains to the spiritualization of the body that must be accomplished to bring about the next stage of birth -- thereby enabling the seeker/disciple to enter into the Kingdom by using the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge to enter through the "narrow way" (see The Fatal Error Of The Church  ) -- it must then be realized that it is the people of an organic natural mindset who remain "outside" in this, the Far Country and "outer darkness", in the statement: "Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie" (Rev 22:14-15 NKJ).  Only those who do His Commandments and become nourished by the life-giving fruit of the Tree of Life, are able to enter through the gates within us into the Kingdom. 

Those who have achieved the next stage of birth are portrayed as being In The House (see In The House ) -- while those who are lost in the "outer darkness" and Far Country, remain "outside" as in the statement:  "...But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie".  Every day you are evaluated by the Laws that continually interact with the Thoughts of the Heart.   "I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve" (Jer 17:10).   The Word of God is manifest in the Laws which continually monitor and interact with our every word, thought, desire and deed: "For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart" (Heb 4:12).  While a person may plan and attempt to devise the road he desires to travel, the Laws direct his steps based upon the thoughts of his heart:  "A person may plan his own journey, but the LORD directs his steps" (Prov 16:9).   Those who present Wholeness and Spiritual Maturity to the Laws, find the Higher Paths of TheWay opening for them: "The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way" (Psalms 37:23). 

From the perspective of achieving the next stage of birth and fully entering the Kingdom of Man: Failure is when you pass from this life without achieving the next stage of birth -- and because you no longer have a physical body within which the Soul's lower nature is manifest -- thereby making Completion and Wholeness impossible -- you will find yourself dumped out into the (lower spiritual) astral-realms that surround the earth.  Many of the places within the various astral-realms can rightly be portrayed as hell -- other a type of limbo -- still other places where people live out their greatest fears -- while others in accord with the vibratory-frequency of the person who has been cast into the astral-realms, are areas where they can begin to accomplish the necessary reuniting with their Higher Soul-Self that is their Source of Being (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image @ http://SoulSelf.org#EmbryonicSoulImage ).  And as stated in Gospel of Thomas saying 84 (see previous link), because they failed to achieve the next stage of birth while in the physical body dwelling in the womb of Mother-Earth, they will remain a failed soul-image.  The Natural Laws of Creation evaluate every word -- every thought -- every desire -- and every action on a daily basis -- seeking to bring about the next stage of birth: "Jesus answered and said to him, Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God... Verily I say unto you, Ex cept ye turn, and become as little children, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven" (John 3:3; Matt 18:3).

When the parable of the prodigal son makes reference to the squandering away of one's inheritance on "riotous living", what is being portrayed is the squandering away of our vital life-force or bio-energy on the things of this world.  This bio-energy must be channeled within our own mind and being, in order to bring about the expansion of mind that is necessary to initiate the next stage of birth.  Paul states that we must prevail over our lower "animal-soul" consciousness that rules over the flesh, and begin to embrace a higher level of spiritual maturity.  As we begin to accomplish this, the Natural Laws that continually interact with the Thoughts of the Heart, makes higher paths available to us in the Labyrinth of Laws through which we are traveling.  And this process of development and advancement in the scriptures is portrayed as having the "eyes to see" beyond the curtain of the "outer darkness" -- i.e., opening the "eyes of the heart" (see http://DivineManna.org#TheNatureOfGnosis ). The more we think and live in accord with the Gospel teachings and travail in TheWay, the more the bio-energy is channeled within our consciousness.  And as the mind evolves through the process of expansion and development, we are no longer being controlled by our lower animal nature and the things of this world -- maturing as we draw nearer the next stage of birth -- and by achieving the next stage of birth, we become "children" portrayed in the above -- whereby we are able to fully enter the Kingdom of Man.

Jesus said,

"Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you.

For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest."

(Gospel Of Thomas)

 

 

   Unless You Recognize And Understand What You Perceive, your progress in all pursuits will be limited and flat-lined.   If you are a student of the most prestigious universities of mankind, and you don't fully understand what you see as you gaze out at the world, your efforts will be severely limited in relation to your true potential.    You may be a world-famous expert, philosopher, or even considered a genus -- and if you fail to "recognize what is in your sight" as presented in the Gospel of Thomas, when you pass from this life you will be confronted by the fact that you only achieved a mere fraction of your true potential.    You may be a world-renowned religious leader who fills churches, temples or mosques with an overflowing number of people who have come to hear your wisdom -- and if you fail to "recognize what is in your sight" as presented in the Gospel of Thomas, you will learn upon passing from this life that you were just another "blind-guide" who led the people in the ditch by the side of TheWay.    You may be a believer of exceedingly great and sincere faith -- an analyst of unparalleled logic and perceptive-wisdom -- a distinguished world leader of unequaled acknowledgment and held in high esteem by great numbers of people -- and if you fail to "recognize what is in your sight" as presented in the Gospel of Thomas, when you pass from this life you will be confronted with the fact that you only accomplishments were mediocre at best. 

 

   The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind: When the American Constitutional Framers acknowledged The Laws Of Nature And Nature's God, one of the elements of Natural Law that is not at all understood today is seen in the fact that the Laws MUST manifest and maintain WHOLENESS!!!   Which provokes the question: What constitutes Wholeness?   While it can be said that an amoeba is whole or one, the same can also be said of man.   Yet, wholeness from the perspective of an amoeba, is very different than wholeness from the perspective of man whose mind is comprised of an infinite number of neurons and an associated field of virtually countless dendrites which monitor and control every aspect of our being -- some of which are only vaguely understood even today.   Thus, while wholeness is very simple as in the example of the amoeba, intelligence is virtually non-existent.   And while both the human and the amoeba each represent a single whole unit, wholeness from a human perspective is very complex -- even far more complex than is even understood by medical experts today -- but it is this very complexity of the mind that enables man to harness an intellect that cannot be achieved in the animal kingdom.

Holographically, as above, so below, and within -- and the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life as patterned at the right, is the universal reality of mind throughout not only all of Creation, but also within our own mind and being.  From a holographic perspective, the Laws of Nature must maintain balance across the spectrum of Mind that is manifest on a Cosmic scale (see The Enigma Of The Twelve - And The Tree Of Life).   The Tree of Life is a perceptual pattern of mind as manifest in man, in the Cosmos, and within the Mind of God as manifest throughout all of Creation.  Allegorically, the pattern of mind is portrayed in the twelve tribes of Israel, as well as the twelve disciples of Jesus in the Gospel accounts.  As presented at The Tree Of Life And The Divine Marriage, the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil), is the male and female outer left and right columns personified in the pattern on the right.   There is no such thing as a male or female Soul.  The Soul is a Being of Light ( http://BeingOfLight.com ) that is the perfect balance of the male/female opposites, as well as what is portrayed as the heavenly and earthly.  And it is this pattern of Duality that must be overcome within us, in order to inherit the Gospel promise of gaining entrance into Life.  And this reality is presented in the Gospel of Thomas in the 22nd saying where the disciples as Jesus: "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"  To which Jesus replied: "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom."   When rightly understood, the merger of opposites is making reference to the opposite spheres of mind of the diagram of the Tree of Life at the right.

To eat the fruit of the Tree of Life, is to enter into Higher Spiritual Life -- i.e., And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever" (Gen 3:22) -- "Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" (Rev 22:1-2).   The fruit of the Tree of Life can only be consumed, when each of the twelve spheres of mind are fully evolved and balanced one with another, and brought into a reality of Wholeness.  
At conception, each person begins their journey into life as a single-cell embryo -- i.e., a type of an amoeba with a greater potential.   But herein lies the problem: IN THE OUTER WORLD, since each person as a one cell embryo can only represent one single point of consciousness within the greater pattern of the Cosmic Mind as portrayed in the Tree of Life -- then unless that person consciously intervenes in an endeavor to overcome their natural limitations, all that each person sees and perceives throughout their lives, is from the perspective of that single point of consciousness.   Since I have already demonstrated in the foregoing that many important original Gospel teachings were removed, let me set before the reader a quotation that has been preserved in what is known as The Gospel Of The Nazirenes where the great diversity of thought among men is explained in the words:  "The One truth has many sides, and one sees one side only, another, and some see more than others, according as it is given to them.  Behold this crystal; how the one light is manifest in twelve faces, yea four times twelve, and each face reflects one ray of light, and one regards one face, and another, another, but it is the one crystal, and the one light that shines in all."  

What is being stated is that while Truth exists on a higher spiritual plane -- in the same way that when Light is projected through a prism, it is seen as the seven colors which we see and observe in this world.   And those who understand the relationship of color and sound within the spectrum of the Law of Octaves, will recognize the use of the twelve segments of a Single Truth when manifest in this world.   With the problem being that while Higher Truths can exist on a Higher Plane of Existence, it is impossible to project Higher Truth into this three-dimensional physical world.   Therefore, the analogy is made as representing a Single Truth that is projected through a crystal, and "...how the one light is manifest in twelve faces".    But holographically, because each fragment retains the pattern of the whole, each of these fragments are themselves divided into twelve -- as represented in the words: "...yea four times twelve" -- which means that the perspective of what each person sees is further fragmented across the Spectrum of Laws that MUST maintain Wholeness.        

What is the ramifications?   If, you divide the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life across the spectrum of humanity in the outer world, then each person as a single point of consciousness, is representative of 1/144,000th of the whole.   Which means that each person who begins their existence as a one-celled human-amoeba, can only represent 1/144,000th of the Whole.   And when you take into account the three-dimensional aspects of this world in relation to The Divine Pattern Of Creation as represented in the Spiritual Doctrine of the Trinity -- and the reality that True Wholeness can only be achieved when the Three Exist At-One -- this reality opens a whole new dimension to the paradox of Wholeness.   What is not at all understood is that the soul of man is asexual -- i.e., but not asexual in the meaning of the absence of polarity in the negative sense -- but rather, the negation of the polarities through their evolved Fullness and Absolute Balance as portrayed in the 22nd saying of the Gospel of Thomas in the words: Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female...".     

The soul and true self of man which -- in its Natural Form is a Being of Light (see SoulSelf.org ) -- is a positive and absolute balance of male/female and the third-force Manifestation of Higher Mind and Being.    What this means is that while the higher soul-self can manifest in this elevated state of being which I portray as the Realm Of Souls because it is not limited to the three dimensions of this physical world, it is impossible for the soul to manifest in a one-cell human amoebic-embryo.   Whereby, when projected into this world, not only is the soul subject to the limitations of the Natural Laws which require Wholeness across the spectrum of the 144,000, but also divided across the gender-divide.   Which means that when you further divide the one cell embryo across gender lines, that makes each man or woman half of this apportionment.   Which is why in the above Gospel of Thomas teaching on when the Kingdom would come, not only must there be a positive-evolved balance of male/female within the Trinitarian Divine Pattern -- i.e., "...when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female..." -- but Jesus states that unless you achieve the next stages of birth through this process of Evolved-Oneness which is able to achieve the necessary Wholeness, you cannot bring about the state of  Wholeness within your mind and being that enables the person you are in this world to be united to your higher soul-self -- and ultimately, to the Indwelling Logos and Creator-God as a Fully Evolved Being of Light.    

When the biblical authors write and warn that man's higher soul-reality and the Kingdom is incomprehensible to the "natural" mind of organic man (see The Second Fatal Mistake), it is because Truth can only exist at a soul-level of mind and being where the twelve faces of the crystal are manifest in the One Truth -- and ultimately, at the Logos Level of Reality (see Logos).  What this means from a holographic perspective, is that in the same way that our physical bodies were formed from the joining and union of the sperm and ovum of our mother and father, when we were born into this world that was only the First Phase of Birth -- and having entered this world as male or female, we exist as a Cosmic Ovum And Sperm (see The Trinity And The Divine Pattern Of Creation).    And from the perspective of our un-manifested higher soul and spiritual reality, this realm can be portrayed as the mental-womb of Mother-God that is the necessary environment to bring about the next stage of birth which enables us to manifest our Eternal Soul-Self in the body-vessel -- as portrayed in another version of the above quotation from the Gospel of Thomas that has been preserved in the Second Epistle Of Clement where Jesus is quoted with respect to the teachings on the coming of the Kingdom in the words: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’” .  

A truly enlightened Spiritually Mature seeker who understood what is often portrayed as the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, would begin to grasp the reality that, BY DESIGN, there can never be unity in the outer world, because the Laws MUST maintain Wholeness -- and the primary cell that formed you as an embryo could only be imbued with 1/144,000th part of the Whole.   And since each of the twelve spheres of mind perceive and understand the world from a different and often opposite paradoxical perspective, then what you have is the embodiment of the allegorical Tower of Babel Syndrome that fragments the thinking and perception of all of mankind -- resulting in the great conflict of thought that we can easily observe in the world.   Thus, based upon this higher reality, if we pose the question: What makes you perceive and understand the world differently from others?   The vastly different perceptions are in fact hard-wired into each person's thinking -- each person possessing a piece of the enigmatic puzzle -- and together, making a whole.    

   The Solution To The Dilemma: One of the parables of the Kingdom in the Gospels is that of a merchant who searches and finds the Pearl of Great Price, and he goes and sells all his lesser pearls in order to purchase it.   But since the carnal mind of the readers fail to understand with any depth or fullness (see Prologue Of The Key Of Knowledge), they fail to recognize the fact that the key to acquiring the Pearl of Great Price is to have collected a substantial number of lesser pearls that can then be sold in order to acquire the One Pearl.   And what this means is that each person possesses a lesser pearl -- i.e., a fragment of truth -- and by developing your power of empathy in conjunction with an understanding of the Natural Laws -- and then using the power of empathy in your interactions with your brothers and sisters as a type of catalyst to reflect their fragmented perception back to you -- you can then begin to expand your own mind, consciousness and being -- INWARDLY.  

We can define empathy as the ability to suspend one's own self in the endeavor to project one's self into the life and thinking of another, in order to perceive and understand the world from their perspective.   Those who possess the knowledge of the Natural Laws, understand that the thinking of each person is determined by the singular point within the 144,000 spectrum of the pattern of mind as portrayed in the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life ( http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ) each person is perceiving the world through.   All the different opinions -- philosophical outlooks -- and schools of thought -- are all the result of the Laws that person was conceived and born under.   And what this means is that while you may not agree with the perception of life of other people because they are also representative of 1/144,000th of the whole, it is important to understand that they do possess a fragment or lesser pearl that you must possess within yourself, in order to begin to achieve Wholeness within your own self.   And this Wholeness of Self is accomplished by expanding your own mind, consciousness and being (see Expansion And Heightening Of Mind) beyond natural physical organic limitations.   But herein lies the problem -- i.e., empathy only works when you are able to suspend your own judgment -- as detailed in the Gospel -- because judgment is partisan and parochial, and is itself limited to a fragment of mind/whole.   Yet, while judgment is an extremely limiting factor, one of the elements that is absolutely necessary to the expansion of mind, is discernment.    

Without judgment, I can discern the vision and perception of life through the eyes of a homosexual, a whore, a thief, a liberal or conservative, a person of a certain philosophical or theological persuasion, as well as every other fragmented variety of human condition.   By suspending judgment, and empathetically inserting myself into the conditions of my brothers and sisters, I can not only see from their perspective -- but I can then use that person as a catalyst to interact with that part of myself that is in harmony with that other person.   And each time I am able to do this, I am in effect expanding my own mind, consciousness and being.   That does not mean that I agree with their very limited and fragmented assessment of life -- but rather, that by empathetically projecting myself into their mind and thinking, and using them as a reflective catalyst, I can collect one of the lesser pearls within myself -- which eventually can be exchanged for the Pearl of Great Price that is beyond natural organic human conception because of the limiting factor of the Natural Laws.  

Homosexuals claim that they were created homosexual -- and while many people may be in denial of this claim, it is fundamentally true (see Conditions Of Birth).  The question that should be asked is: Why has such a person been born homosexual in this present life?  In fact, modern science has about proven that each person is born hard-wired to the life that they are presently living.   Consider the interesting finding in the Publishers Weekly Review of the book entitled Hardwired Behavior: What Neuroscience Reveals about Morality:

Society's assumptions about freewill and individual responsibility must be drastically revised in the light of scientific discoveries about the brain, argues this fascinating study. Drawing on a wealth of recent developments in neurobiology, genetics and brain imaging, Tancredi, a professor of psychiatry and a lawyer, examines new findings about the neurological structures and processes that underlie reasoning, emotions and decision-making. He applies these discoveries to such traditional moral concerns as violence, sexual infidelity, lying, gluttony and sloth, and even financial fraud and gambling. The striking results of this research, he notes, indicate that hormones, drugs, genetic abnormalities, injuries and traumatic experiences all have profound effects on brain structure and functioning, and hence on moral choices; indeed, some experiments imply that our actions are initiated by the unconscious brain before we are consciously aware of them, raising the possibility that our sense of moral agency is a retrospective "illusion." Tancredi supplements his rather dry exposition of the science with case studies from his clinical practice, including lengthy profiles of a sex-addicted patient and of a "biologically driven" serial killer, and closes by pondering the possibility and perils of a hypothetical Brave New World-style program of neurological intervention-complete with brain implants-to improve morality. Some will consider Tancredi's talk of the "empathetic" female brain and "systemizing" male brain and his chalking up of pedophilia to "an imbalance of the monoamine neurotransmitters" and homosexuality to "differences in neurohumeral activity during the prenatal phase" to be glibly reductionist, but many will find his well-researched overview of the new science of the brain a stimulating addition to the debate about human nature.

What this means is that your thinking -- and your manner of thought -- is solely dependent upon your Conditions Of Birth  -- orchestrated by (1) your Spiritual DNA based upon your soul's previous accomplishments; (2) where in the spectrum of the 1/144,000 you fall; (3) karmic loops that are carried from life to life; (4) and the debts you owe as portrayed in the reality of the words: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).    In the above example of the person who is born homosexual: While there is a biological cause which the book by Prof. Tancredi notes in his conclusion to "differences in neurohumeral activity during the prenatal phase", these differences are orchestrated by the foregoing four factors with respect to each person's Conditions Of Birth.    That each individual person is born into the life that they are about to live that has been orchestrated by the Natural Laws and the role on the stage of life that has been incorporated into their own curriculum and syllabus of learning, means that the choices we make in conjunction with what we accomplish with the opportunity of life, orchestrates the life that our soul-self will be born into in the future.          

What this means is that a liberal, is a liberal, because his thinking is hard-wired to that manner of perception and thinking -- as is a conservative.   Ultra-liberal Alan Combs is incapable of seeing the world from the perspective of Right-wing Sean Hannity -- and their perceptive thinking is hard-wired to opposite spheres of mind.    Which one is right?   It is not a question of right or wrong, because they both possess an important fragmented piece of the enigmatic puzzle -- which when combined with many other fragmented pieces, creates the whole that is maintained across the spectrum of human thought by the Natural Laws that control our lives.  

The Gospel message tells us not to judge our brothers and sisters, because judgment is predicated upon a perception of right and wrong.   Yet, the Gospel also requires a very high level of discernment.   The Gospel account of Jesus has him stating to the man: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).   Which means that what is portrayed as sin has dire consequences.   And to the woman caught in adultery Jesus stated: "...go and sin no more'" (John 8:2-11 NKJ).   Thus, while discernment and an enlightened sense of cause and effect and higher reality is absolutely necessary, judgment must be understood within the spectrum of the Natural Laws. 

If not even a sparrow can fall to the earth apart from the Will of God (see The Great Christian Quagmire) -- and each person is preordained and hard-wired to the life they are presently living -- then while ideological judgment is in and of itself the embodiment of evil, discernment and being extremely cognizant of the fact that choices have consequences that must be lived out, is a human reality that must be intimately embraced by those who aspire to arise to man's highest potential.   The fact that we are all different -- and to perceive and evolve the ability to understand the causal factors that hard-wired us to these often radically opposite differences -- is of the highest importance in overcoming our own natural limitations -- and ultimately acquiring the Pearl of Great Price. 

  Triangulation - Overcoming The Tower Of Babel Syndrome: In understanding the Natural Laws of Creation that subjects all of mankind to the Tower Of Babel Syndrome -- a reality created because of the Enigma Of The Segmented Mind whereby each person is born polarized to a single point of 1/144,000th within the Pattern of Mind as portrayed in the Tree of Life -- Jesus taught to turn the other cheek in a discerning non-judgmental manner when encountering others (see Jesus The {Law} Professor).  In the manner of the Tower Of Babel which is portrayed in the words: “Now the whole world had one language and a common speech… But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. The LORD said, ‘If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other’” (Gen 11:1-7 NIV).   In the allegorical portrayal, the people were attempting to connect the Earth with the Heavens by building a tower out of purely earthly substances -- which is impossible to accomplish without achieving Wholeness -- i.e., "And when Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of a physician..." (Mark 2:17).   Yet, this wholeness remains beyond our reach so long as we remain ignorant of the Laws, and (organically) polarized to the point of mind of our conception and birth.   Thus, to break out of our birth-limitations, we must develop those areas of mind that remain inactive in "natural" organic man -- limiting him to what Paul portrayed as an "animal-soul" level of consciousness.   And this development beyond the organic can only be achieved through the process of triangulating the impressions of our brothers and sisters who are born in accord with a different point of mind (1/144,000th) within the spectrum of the Tree of Life.   And through the process of discerning without judgment, we are able to connect the points of mind within us to which that other person would correspond within the Natural Laws. 

In the allegory of the Tower of Babel, each  person is portrayed as speaking a different language, because they perceive the world from a different point of mind and consciousness within the spectrum of the Tree of Life.   And this great difference between the perceptive-thinking and vision of each person, is necessary in order to maintain Cosmic-Wholeness.  Because Wholeness of Mind cannot be manifest in a one-cell embryo at conception -- and only one point or 1/144,00th can be manifest in such a limited environment of the Primary Cell -- each person perceives the world from that point within the spectrum of the Laws that they are born under -- which causes the vast difference of opinion and perception that causes mankind to dwell in an environment of confusion.   And because when you are born into this world as a Cosmic Ovum and Sperm (see The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm), this world can be portrayed as the womb of Mother-Earth that is the necessary environment to bring about the next stage of (mental) development and birth into the Kingdom of Man (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature and Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple).   That the present life you are living provides you the opportunity to enter the Kingdom of Man, which is why Paul portrays "natural" organic man as being of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness that is incapable of comprehending man's higher soul and spiritual reality.  

In the article on the Key of Knowledge it is demonstrated in the subheading The Spiritual Diaspora - Rejection Of Human Opinion, that the opinions set forth by men of a "natural" organic condition of mind, is to be totally rejected as factitious and heresy.   Which means that all the Bible Commentaries -- all the sectarian opinions, positions and dogma -- are all gravely misleading and in opposition to the core teachings of the Gospel and the New Covenant.   And when the Gospel account of Jesus said that the blind guides should first remove the beam from their own eyes, before they attempt to remove the splinters from the eyes of their brothers and sisters, he was making reference to their own inherent organic blindness caused by their abject ignorance of the Laws and the meaning of the allegorical portrayal of the Tower of Babel Syndrome, and their failure to properly utilize the scriptures in conjunction with the proper use of the Key of Knowledge.   By taking advantage of the requirement of the Laws to maintain Wholeness across the Cosmic Tree of Life -- understanding that each person BY LAW, perceives the world from a different perspective -- and that when you encounter these vastly different perspectives, they can act as an important catalyst that enables the seeker to connect and activate those latent points of consciousness within themselves that each person represents -- thereby enabling the seeker to connect with their own latently-dormant points of consciousness within their own mind -- thereby expanding their own minds beyond their own organic limitations -- enabling the seeker to bring about the process of expansion and deepening of mind which initiates the necessary mental-development to bring about the next stage of birth (Soul-Birth) -- enabling the seeker/disciple to become At-One with their Higher Soul-Self ( http://SoulSelf.org ). 

What this means is that the greatest obstacles to the process of Gospel enlightenment is the Churches and Organized Religion based upon man-made dogma and human opinion -- and Academia that not only inhibits wholeness and alienates the student from their own True-Self.   The further inhibiting students from the higher development of mind is the Academia And The Feminist Cultural War On Women http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#AcademiaWarOnWomen -- whereby they inhibit the Feminine development of the Intuitive, and attempt to program women as what is best portrayed as linear-thinking surrogate men.  That woman is the Intuitive opposite from Linear man -- and the interaction of the two opposites is necessary to bring about the development of mind which can initiate the next stage of Soul-Birth -- is essential for human development beyond the organic level of consciousness.  As is the process of Triangulation by virtue of discernment without judgment, which process must be embraced every day of the seekers life.        

Physically, a fetus is born when the necessary degree of wholeness is achieved that permits the infant to live outside the womb of its mother.   Holographically -- what is true of the pattern in the physical, is also true on a mental and spiritual level -- and we therefore enter this world as a Cosmic Ovum Or Sperm , where the womb of Mother-Earth provides the necessary environment for our development and entrance into the Kingdom of Man through the process of Soul-Birth.   We develop into the next level of embryo and fetus -- holographically -- through the interaction of opposites (see The Holographic Pattern Of Sex).   And this interaction of opposites is not only true with respect to the Divine Union of Man and Woman (see The Esoteric Feminine Mystique) -- but through the process of mental-expansion, it is necessary to overcome the Natural Laws imposed upon the individual as personified in the Tower of Babel Syndrome, and bring about the expansion and deepening of mind through empathic-discernment without judgment of our fellow brothers and sisters.     

  Triangulation - The Laws - The Spiritually Mature Mind:  With respect to the Enigma of the Segmented Mind  and the process of Triangulation that is explored in the above (see Triangulation), it is one thing to ignore what can be portrayed as the lame-brain ideas and beliefs of a great many people -- and quite another thing when you come to realize that these people are presenting you with what appears to be lame-brain ideas and sometimes really asinine beliefs, for your own benefit.  When rightly understood, these people are helping you and your ability to evolve the mind beyond "animal-soul" organic limitations.  And if you judge them -- calling them stupid and ignorant -- your judgments will come back upon you, because you will become what you judge. The Law is that any movement in one direction, initiates its opposite. And unless that opposite can be resolved through your own Wholeness of Mind, then you will become what you judge. And this is why I portray Jesus as the Law Professor -- not because when Jesus warns about judging in the Sermon on the Mount, it is not a religious belief -- but rather, a matter of Natural Law -- i.e., Laws that over the course of many Soul-Lives, evolve the Soul to a condition of Completion and Wholeness. What Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount has absolutely nothing to do with beliefs -- but an inescapable reality that has the effect of imprisoning the Soul in meaningless lives of tribulation (see ThePrison ).

In today's PC Topsy Tervey Culture, we have students demanding safe zones so they don't have to hear opposing opinions and positions.  We have the extreme Left Wing promoting their very one-sided positions -- condemning all other perceptive-opinions as dangerous, racist, anti-American -- portraying these opposing opinions and positions as being inferior.  And when you begin to understand the Laws, today's Left Wing radicals were the very Right Wingers who they condemn and reject today -- and vice versa.  Today's race merchants who promote racial dissension, was yesterdays racists and slave-owners.  Today's radical feminists were yesterdays misogynists and abusers of women.  Today's politicians were yesterday's priests who promoted theocracies.  Today's Atheists were yesterday's fire and brimstone hell-fire preachers.  Today's abused wives were often yesterday's abusers of women.

When you learn to Triangulate in the presence of others who are presented to you as a catalyst, you can often begin to connect with not only those aspects of self that would be in agreement with the other person's beliefs, opinions or ideological positions, but in many instances you can connect with your own Soul's past lives who were either in league or in opposition to what the person who is acting as a catalyst represents to you.  Quoting from http://SoulSelf.org#SoulSymphony :

When the scribes and Pharisees wanted to stone the woman who had been caught in adultery -- i.e., and Jesus said: "...He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first" (John 8:3-11 NKJ)-- what Jesus in fact said was ultra important to understand.  The word rendered sin in this instance, appears no where else in the Gospels -- and it should be interpreted "...He who is without sin [in any lifetime] among you, let him throw a stone at her first."  If the Law stated that an adulterous woman should be stoned, then why didn't Jesus throw the first stone? As is demonstrated in The Biblical Foundational Mindset @ http://ChristianReincarnation.org#BiblicalFoundationalMindset , the scribes and Pharisees understood that the Laws which bring about the Conditions of Birth ( http://ChristianReincarnation.org#ConditionsOfBirth ) for each person, determines the life that they are living in the present, by virtue of the deeds and accomplishments of their previous lives which their soul has lived -- lives which continue within the higher reality of the soul, by virtue of the fact that what man perceives as time, is merely a dimension of mind (see The Enigma Of Time @ http://SoulSelf.org#EnigmaOfTime). And the scribes and Pharisees understood that it was impossible to be without sin over the course of the countless lifetimes that each person's soul has lived.

This is not to say that the seeker should cease to perceptively-discern right from wrong -- as Jesus said to the man who he had healed: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).  Discernment of right and wrong in one's brothers and sisters requires the insight not only what is right and wrong, but also the causal factor into what has caused the other person to act in the manner they are.   Was their sin the product of spiritual immaturity?  Were they forced into that role by the Laws because of their past judgment of others?  Or, has the life they are presently living been orchestrated by the previous actions of that person's own Soul?  And when Jesus warned the person that if they sin again "...a worse thing will come unto them", this assertion was a matter of Natural Law where our actions are returned back upon us -- i.e., “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).  And in the same way that Jesus understood these Natural Laws of Creation, any person with evolved and developed Intuitive spheres of mind is able to perceive the causal factors behind a persons present experiences in life -- the good, the bad, the indifferent and the ugly.

Modern society is absolutely clueless with respect to the causal-factors in the events and experiences of mankind, because our religions, our philosophies, our governments and academia are all build upon a gravely flawed foundation.  Our teachers and professors throughout every level of academia program their students that their lives are controlled by luck of the draw, good fortune, accident caused event model of thinking.  Where, when the Laws are understood, nothing could be further from the truth.  That every event in one's life is the direct result of a causal factor that has been initiated by each person's own past, is an enslaving reality that Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount was teaching -- teaching in order to assist the people to escape the shackles of their own ignorance of the Laws.  Which provokes the question: Should students throughout academia be informed that what they experience in life is directly orchestrated by their own past words, thoughts, desires and deeds?  And that they are responsible for the life they are present living -- i.e., the good, the bad, the indifferent and the ugly.  If they are poor, a victim, a homosexual -- as well as every other condition of life -- their own Soul's previous actions are the author of the life they are living at the present.  In all aspects of life, the chickens of a person's past come home to roost in the present (see http://DivineStrategery.com#chickens ).

That modern man is for the most part blind to this higher reality and meaning of what they see, is because they fail to develop themselves -- and they embrace and support pseudo-religious and pseudo-secular authorities who for their own preservation of power, force other men and women to conform to their dictates -- again repeating the little understood statement in the Revelation: “If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” (Rev 13:9-10 NKJ).  Those who force their opinions, rules, man-made laws, philosophy and judgments upon others -- leading them into captivity to those opinions, beliefs, religious dogma, philosophies or secular man-made ordinances -- will themselves be slain by the Sword of the Laws that return to each person or group of people the fruit of their own actions.  Those who lead others into captivity -- or support those who force their will upon others -- will themselves become imprisoned by the Laws until they cease to exert force upon their brothers and sisters.

A person who has developed their Intuitive spheres of mind who learns to Triangulate and discern without judgment, can often see what enslaves that other person. Often connecting to an ideology, philosophy or theology in their own past that has enslaved them. But in the same way that our modern culture is ignorant of the causal factors that orchestrate the lives people are presently living, academia inhibits the development of the Intuitive because what is known as Second-Sight fails to confirm the counterfeit philosophy that is taught in our schools and universities today (see Academia And The Feminist Cultural War On Women http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#AcademiaWarOnWomen ). Thus, it is our institutions who fail to understand the power of discernment in combination with Triangulation that reveals the causal-factors that shackle mankind to lives of suffering and abject ignorance of the very Laws that control every aspect of their lives.

The Outer Darkness

In the Gospel of Matthew the term "outer darkness" is used three times in conjunction with those who did not seek truth and to walk in TheWay.   Thus, we must ask the question: Exactly what is the outer darkness that is portrayed in the Gospels?   The Wikipedia states that: In Christianity, the outer darkness is a place referred to three times in the Gospel of Matthew (8:12, 22:13, and 25:30) into which a person may be "cast out", and where there is "weeping and gnashing of teeth". Generally, the outer darkness is thought to be hell; however, many Christians associate the outer darkness more generally as a place of separation from God or from the metaphorical "wedding banquet" that Jesus is expected to have upon his Second Coming.    

It is an easily provable fact that the Gospels we use today have been edited and corrupted (see BibleCorruption.com ), with many important teachings and concepts totally removed.   One of these core teachings and concepts that was removed, has been preserved in what is known as the Gospel of the Nazirenes where in chapter 64:12-13 it states: Again, Jesus spoke to Mary Magdalen saying, "It is written in the law, 'Who so leaveth father or mother, let him die the death.' Now the law speaketh not of the parents in this life, but of the Indweller of Light which is in us to this day."  Who so therefore forsakes Messiah the savior, the holy law, and the body of the elect, let them die the death. Yea, let them be lost in the outer darkness, for so they willed and none can hinder The Law."   

  The Dead Know Nothing: The book of Ecclesiastes declares: "...but the dead know nothing" (Eccl 9:5 NIV).   But to understand what is being expressed in these words, one must first understand the biblical meaning of death as the prodigal son's separation from God.    When the Book of Genesis makes the profound statement that if the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil) is eaten, that you will die -- the reference is not to a physical death -- but rather, a death that Jesus portrayed as being cast into the "outer darkness" of mind and being.   And this is descriptive of the majority of lost prodigal sons and daughters who have come under the control of what Paul calls the "god of this world", which in the parable of the two sons is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country.  Thus, on this very subject and reality the Gospel of Philip declares: "A nationalist does not die, for he has never lived so that he could die. Whoever has trusted the truth (became) alive, and this-one is in danger of dying (as a martyr), for he is alive since the day that the Christ" came.   The use of the term nationalist in the Gospel of Philip, must be understood as a person who is biblical portrayed as being of the Nations -- and who very much lives and thinks in accord with the ways of this world -- i.e., the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son.    The martyr is he who dies to the ways of this world, in order to seek the next stage of birth that enables him escape the "outer darkness", and enter the inner reality of the soul and the Kingdom. 

It will remain impossible for modern man to in any manner understand what Jesus portrays as the state of death, without the recognition that what is being presented in the above is that condition brought about by man's separation from God -- i.e., the plight of the prodigal son who has left the Kingdom of the Father, and ventured out into this world which is portrayed as the Far Country.   The prodigal son was portrayed as being dead, and in returning to the Kingdom, and once again become alive.   And when the disciple asked about burying his father, Jesus stated: Another disciple said to him, Lord, first let me go and bury my father. But Jesus told him, Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead” (Matt 8:21-22 NIV).    Thus, those who in the Gospel are portrayed as being dead, are the lost prodigal sons who dwell in this world, and remain separated from the "...Indweller of Light".

   The Prodigal Son Does Not Remember The Past: The Bible itself states to us in Eccl 1:9-11 that “there is no new thing under the sun” -- and then asks the question: “Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See this is new”.  Let us refute the wisdom of the Bible, and use the example of a new-born baby as something that is new.   Surely this baby is new -- i.e., it has never had an existence prior to being born.   Yet, the scripture confutes us, and teaches that “It hath been already of old time, which was before us”.  So that we might be sure that the scriptures are speaking about a new born baby, it then goes on to clarify the statement by adding: “There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after”.  Based upon these words is can be said that, from a biblical perspective, even though a baby (or person) will not remember its past: “It hath been already of old time”.  

From the perspective of the parable of the prodigal son, what is being portrayed is the reality that each of us once dwelt in the Kingdom of the Father -- and that having ventured out into this, the Far Country, each of us has become lost and no longer remembers how we came to be in this world -- i.e., best portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being.  And the only means to restore our memory of our more distant past, is to follow in the footsteps of our elder brother Jesus as portrayed in the Gospel message.   And as we do this -- drawing nearer to the "...Indweller of Light" -- our memory of our more distant past will begin to become restored.   That the original Gospel teachings contained this essential truth pertaining to our more distant past, is easily demonstrate (see ChristianReincarnation.org ).   That this teaching was an essential truth that was embraced in the first century, is easily demonstrated in the subheading The Biblical Foundational Mindset.     And that this soul-reality was an important teaching of the pre-Nicene Christian Church, is explored at the subheading The Early Church On Predestination.    And that the original Church which no longer exists was a Center of Healing that guided the lost prodigal sons in TheWay, and reunited them with the "...Indweller of Light", is easily demonstrated in the doctrine The Secret Doctrine.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

This World As A Living Bio-Feedback Organism

Controlled By The Organic Laws Of Creation

 

 

Jesus not only taught that the life that everyone is living has been predestined from before they were even born, but that one's failure to embrace and abide by the Higher Laws of Creator-God, will bring about a type of imprisonment -- an  imprisonment that is portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see above).  Thus the oft ignored warning: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   But Jesus also portrayed a type of Prison where he warned that “Thou shalt by no means come out from there, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (Mat 5:26).   Which provokes the question: Come out from where?   And how must one's debts be repaid?   And while the reality of both The Prison and the "outer darkness" was understood by the early Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus (see Ebionite), and the early Gentile Christians (see The Secret Doctrine), this higher understanding of the journey of the pre-existent soul and the interaction with the Laws which not only imprisons, but also blinds and inhibits one from perceiving and acquiring the higher knowledge of the Gospel teachings, was declared heresy by the Emperor Justinian (see The Ten Reasons Why The Church Rejected The Doctrine Of The Pre-Existent Soul -- see also The Religion Of Roman Emperors).    And many of the biblical teachings which supported these teachings, had previously been removed to make the scriptures support the pagan doctrines of Rome (see BibleCorruption.com ).  

 

John 5:2

Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porticoes. In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, waiting for the moving of the waters; for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.  A man was there who had been ill for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had already been a long time in that condition, He said to him, "Do you wish to get well?" The sick man answered Him, "Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, but while I am coming, another steps down before me."  Jesus said to him, "Get up, pick up your pallet and walk." Immediately the man became well, and picked up his pallet and began to walk.

 

 

If, as Jesus confirms, that not even a single sparrow can fall to the earth apart from the Will of God, then the source and calamities of evil that befall mankind, are the result of the Laws that return to each person the fruit of their own previous actions.   Thus, Jesus warns the man who he previously healed by making him whole: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).   And in another example where Jesus healed a paralytic it is written: "When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, Son, your sins are forgiven" (Mark 2:5).     Thus, the cause of the infirmities and conditions of the people's lives, was in direct accord with the Law of God.  But even more important is the reality that we must therefore ask: If our own actions can, and do cause "...a worse thing [to] come unto [us]", how is this tribulation brought about?  The answer is that there were Laws put into action at the very beginning of Creation which returns to each person the fruit of their own actions -- “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV). 

As set forth by the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis - see Chickens Come Home To Roost).   As it is written: "In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps" (Prov 16:9 NIV).   And if we inquire as to why everyone's life has been preordained and controlled by the Laws of God and Creation, the answer is that you are presently following a syllabus which has totally scripted the life you are living -- and this life-syllabus was all designed and determined based upon your own previous actions, failures and accomplishments.   Thus, you have not only created the life that you are presently living out of your own past accomplishments and failures -- and your present life is being strictly orchestrated by the Laws of God -- but you are totally responsible for all events within the construct of the good, the bad and the ugly that you experience -- and how you respond to your choices that have been presented to you, will determine the conditions you will encounter in the future, including your next life.   And the reality that those who submit to the Atheist Paradigm of Thought remain totally ignorant of this factual reality of the Laws, is the result of their own mentally narrow and constrained foundation of thinking, mindset and lifestyle.

If we pose the question as to what degree life on earth is predestined?  It is at this point where the biblical teaching on predestination conveys a reality that few people are able or willing to come to terms with -- as demonstrated in Jesus' own words when he said: “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will” (Matt 10:29 RSV).  Thus, we must ask: Was Jesus wrong?   If it is true that not even a sparrow can fall to the ground apart from the Will of God, then we have no other option than to come to terms with the reality presented in the Gospels that every event in this life is directly orchestrated by (the Laws of) God?   And that this knowledge can only be imparted to those who are sincere seekers and disciples of TheWay that Jesus taught, is a reality that those in denial must come to terms with.

On the above verse the Adam Clark Bible Commentary states: “The providence of God extends to the minutest things; everything is continually under the government and care of God, and nothing occurs without his will or permission”.   In relation to this verse under the heading of Providence in the Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary it is explained that: “Divine government is the continued activity of God by which He directs all things to the ends He has chosen in His eternal plan… He governs insignificant things (Matt. 10:29-31), apparent accidents (Prov. 16:33), as well as man's good (Phil. 2:13) and evil deeds (Acts 14:16). God acts in accordance with the laws and principles that He has established in the world. The laws of nature are nothing more than man's description of how we perceive God at work in the world. They neither have inherent power nor do they work by themselves. Man is not free to choose and act independently from God's will and plan; he chooses and acts in accordance with them. In His sovereignty, God controls man's choices and actions (Gen. 45:5; Deut. 8:18; Prov. 21:1). God's actions, however, do not violate the reality of human choice or negate man's responsibility as a moral being”.

The Church Father Origen who was known as "the prince of Christian learning" in the third century, second only to the Apostles, writes that "...to every one according to his merits; nor will the happiness or unhappiness of each one's birth, or whatever be the condition that falls to his lot, be deemed accidental" (see Predestination ).  Why?   Why is the conditions of one's birth not be deemed an accident?   Because there are no accidents as the Atheist and Secular Humanist mindset promotes.    Origen then goes on and writes with respect to each person's station in life "...that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel [person] has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor."   And, as stated in the foregoing, each person's birth into this life is determined by that person's own past actions -- i.e., "...either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor".   Or, as stated by the Apostle Paul: "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   And this same exact message is being presented to every person today, in our own time, in the very life that they are presently living.    When the Labyrinth of the Laws that directs our paths throughout life presents us with choices, it is at this point only, where we are able to exercise freewill and choice.

Christians are faith-based, simply because both the essence of the Gospel and the objectives and higher realities of life make absolutely no sense to their limited thinking which is inhibited by a foundational mindset that is pagan and manmade.   It is impossible for them to comprehend the reality of the foregoing Gospel teachings that they continually ignore -- and how these important teachings can possibly apply to them in the manner that they appear to -- because the very foundation of their thinking is manmade and counterfeit.   And this fact is especially seen in the question asked by the disciples: "Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, 'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?'" (John 9:1-2 NKJ).   Thus, what Christian today would ask the forgoing question?   Not a single one would.    Why?    Because modern Christians have been totally alienated from the biblical foundational mindset, by the very doctrines adopted while the Church was ruled over by Pagan Rome.    Thus, we must pose the question:  What prompted the disciples of Jesus to even ask such a question?  Turning to the historian, this ultra important element to the equation of life is made reference to by Edward Gibbon in the footnote regarding the question of the disciples at John 9:2: "The disciples of Jesus were persuaded that a man might have sinned before he was born, (John, ix. 2,) and the Pharisees held the transmigration [reincarnation] of virtuous souls, (Joseph. de Bell. Judaico, l. ii. c. 7;) and a modern Rabbi is modestly assured, that Hermes, Pythagoras, Plato, etc., derived their metaphysics from his illustrious countrymen" (Gibbon; Decline & Fall) -- metaphysics that embraced the concept of the pre-existence and transmigration of the soul.

Again, let me pose the question as to what this statement means to us from a modern-day perspective?   It means that the mindset and doctrinal thinking of the modern believer is so alienated from the original biblical foundational mindset and thinking, that the modern believer has been rendered spiritually sterile.    The original mindset and thinking with respect to the events of life from the perception of the disciples is explored in the Wycliffe Commentary where it is written: "The question of the disciples (v. 2) was grounded in the belief that bodily infirmity or suffering was due to sin, whether of parents (Exo 20:5) or of the man himself, presumably on the basis of the soul’s pre-existence, which some Jews held".   Thus we must ask: Is this some Jewish fable that the disciples of Christ conjured up themselves?   Or is this belief a foundational element of the Gospel that Jesus taught to them?   Once properly understood the position of the disciples is founded upon the construct of Jesus' statement to the person he healed and made whole: "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).    And what this means is that those who sin -- especially after coming to the knowledge of the Gospel message -- inherit a fate even worse than before they were healed from their sin.   To the degree that Paul warned the congregation of believers: , “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).    

What does it mean that "...God cannot be mocked -- [and that each person] reaps what he sows”?   To the degree that Jesus warned the man: "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee."    Yet, to their own spiritual demise, the vast majority of Christians promote the belief that they are exempt from having their own sin and misdeeds come back upon them in the manner that is portrayed in these verses -- and that somehow they have been exempted from the fruit of their own ways, while everyone else is held in judgment.    In fact, Christians promote the doctrine that because they attempt to appease the Lord with their lips, they virtually have a license to live in sin.    And they cling to this doctrine even though the Gospel warns that their fate will be worse than the unbelievers (see Fate) -- and that because of their infidelity to the Gospel wherein they crucify the Son of God afresh, even the opportunity of salvation by virtue of the sacrifice on the cross has been denied to them (see Sacrifice).    And because of their infidelity to the Gospel, they have been rendered spiritually blind to the degree that they fail to perceive that they are dwelling in what Jesus portrayed as The Prison and the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Blindness) -- incapable of understanding the core meaning of the Gospel and the scriptures.    

When Jesus warned the man "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" -- he confirmed the doctrine that all the calamities of life is caused by man's sin and disobedience to the Royal Law of God.   On the question itself that the disciples of Jesus asked -- i.e., Master, who did sin? -- the commentary Barnes’ Notes writes that: "It was a universal opinion among the Jews that calamities of all kinds were the effects of sin. The case, however, of this man was that of one that was blind from his birth, and it was a question which the disciples could not determine whether it was his fault or that of his parents. Many of the Jews, as it appears from their writings (see Lightfoot), believed in the doctrine of the transmigration of souls; or that the soul of a man, in consequence of sin, might be compelled to pass into other bodies, and be punished there. They also believed that an infant might sin before it was born (see Lightfoot), and that consequently this blindness might have come upon the child as a consequence of that".

On the question of who did sin, this man, or his parents, and the pre-existence and reincarnation of the soul, the Adam Clarke Commentary tells us: "The doctrine of the transmigration of souls appears to have been an article in the creed of the Pharisees, and it was pretty general both among the Greeks and the Asiatics. The Pythagoreans believed the souls of men were sent into other bodies for the punishment of some sin which they had committed in a pre-existent state. This seems to have been the foundation of the disciples’ question to our Lord. Did this man sin in a pre-existent state, that he is punished in this body with blindness? Or, did his parents commit some sin, for which they are thus plagued in their offspring!... The Jewish rabbis have had the same belief from the very remotest antiquity. Origen cites an apocryphal book of the Hebrews, in which the patriarch Jacob is made to speak thus: I am an angel of God; one of the first order of spirits. Men call me Jacob, but my true name, which God has given me, is Israel: Orat. Joseph. apud ORIG. Many of the Jewish doctors have believed that the souls of Adam, Abraham, and Phineas, have successively animated the great men of their nation. Philo says that the air is full of spirits, and that some, through their natural propensity, join themselves to bodies; and that others have an aversion from such a union. See several other things relative to this point in his treatises, De Plant. Noe-- De Gigantibus-- De Confus. Ling.-- De Somniis, etc.; and see Calmet, where he is pretty largely quoted".

It is important in our assessment of genuine biblical foundations of thought to recognize the fact that the pre-existence and what some call the reincarnation of the soul was a universally accepted belief among the people who Jesus taught the Gospel Precepts -- and in the case of the Disciples, the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God.  Once this fact is acknowledged, then we are forced to conclude that if this belief about the nature of life was in error, and the journey of the pre-existent soul is not a viable part of the teachings of Jesus, then Jesus would have had to condemn it -- or, we must recognize that it was removed by the later Gentile Church.

Did the Jews in the first century believe in the pre-existent soul?  The Hastings-Scribner Dictionary Of The Bible (New York, 1903. Bk 4, p. 63) "To affirm that Jews in Christ's time did not believe in pre-existence is simply incorrect".   At Genesis 2:7, the Wycliffe Commentary writes: “Man's body was fashioned from the dust of the ground, while his spirit came from the very ‘breath’ of God. He is literally a creature of two worlds; both earth and heaven can claim him”.  More importantly, though, is for us to clarify our understanding of when the soul came into existence.   Thus, the Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary notes the belief of both the Jews and early Church: “The... views of Origen and other Fathers, and the... Talmudists, that all souls had been created ‘in the beginning,’ and were lodged by God in a certain place, whence each one was taken out to inhabit the respective bodies of individuals”.   In this respect, it can easily be demonstrated the first followers of Yeshua firmly believed that the soul pre-existed the body, and that our present physical forms are mere vessels that we inhabit during our sojourn in this life.

That the Pharisees understood that a man is born blind from the misdeeds of a previous life is seen in their words to the man: "You were born entirely in sins, and are you teaching us?" (Jn 9:34 NAS).  Moreover, it is well documented that the Essenes -- who with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls are now understood to be the foundation of New Covenant teachings -- also believed in the pre-existence and transmigration of the soul.   In his Antiquity of the Jews, the Jewish historian Josephus, who had lived among the Essenes, and was a contemporary of the man Jesus, stated that the Essenes: “…resigned up their souls with great alacrity, as expecting to receive them again.  For their doctrine is this, that bodies are corruptible, and that the matter they are made of is not permanent; but that the souls are immortal, and continue for ever; and that they came out of the most subtle air, and are united to their bodies as to prisons, into which they are drawn by a certain natural enticement; but that when they are set free from the bonds of flesh, they then, as released from a long bondage, rejoice and mount upward...”.  

Josephus openly wrote the foregoing words pertaining to the pre-existent soul that incarnates into the body, because it was a predominant belief held by the Jews in the first century.   And in the version of John 9:1 that is contained in the Gospel of the Nazirenes 53:1 (see Born Blind) we can see what the Gospel of John used to contain before being edited by the Church (see BibleCorruption.com) where it is written: "And at another time as Yeshua passed by, he saw a man who was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?  Yeshua answered, To what importance is it whether this man or his parents sinned? The rewards of our actions return again to us so that the works of the Lord are made manifest. I must work the works of the Lord while in this season. As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world."

Modern Christians fail to realize that their religion evolved out of Judaism, and Spiritual Jews have always founded their system of beliefs upon the concept of the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes.   The following quotation is taken from The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, under the heading of Souls, Transmigration of: “The doctrine of transmigration of souls, which was especially accepted by the Karaites… is generally attacked by Jewish philosophers, but is defended by Isaac Abravanel and Manasseh ben Israel.  It appears often in Cabala; it is found in organized form in the Zohar, it is further developed in the teachings of Isaac Luria (1534-1572), and in Hasidism it becomes a universal belief.   According to these teachings, all human souls have a common origin in the spiritual unity of the primordial man, sparks of which form the individual souls... The sin of Adam brought higher and lower souls into confusion; as a result, every soul has to pass through a series of incarnations... The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”.  

In the Zohar, the foundational doctrine of Jewish Mysticism, it is written that: “All souls are subject to the trials of transmigration; and men do not know the designs of the Most High with regard to them… The souls must re-enter the absolute substance whence they have emerged.  But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”.   This reunion with God is the rebirth that was spoken of by Jesus to the Pharisee Nicodemus, “a ruler of the Jews”.  

Parallel to the Journey of the Soul as set forth in the Zohar in the foregoing, is the teachings in the Qur'an which states "God generates beings, and sends them back over and over again, till they return to Him"    Which again parallels the teachings of Jesus in the Pistis Sophia where it is stated: “But if he shall have sinned once, twice, or thrice, they shall reject that soul, sending it back again into the world according to the form of the sins that it may have committed; the form whereof I will declare unto you hereafter.   But verily, verily I say unto you, that even the righteous man that hath committed no sin at all cannot be brought into the Kingdom of Light, forasmuch the seal of the mysteries of that kingdom is not found upon him.  Once for all, I say unto you, a soul cannot be brought into the kingdom, if it be without the mysteries of the Kingdom of the Light.”   When it is understood that the "...seal of the mysteries" which is further stated in the pronouncement that "...Once for all, I say unto you, a soul cannot be brought into the kingdom, if it be without the mysteries of the Kingdom of the Light”  is parallel to the Zohar where it states that "...But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”.

While Christians attempt to interpret the parable of the Prodigal Son in fragmented piecemeal, when taken as a whole, and understood as a universal reality common to all of mankind in the manner it was intended to be understood, it is recognized to be in total conflict with modern Christian doctrine.    Once it is understood that each of us is the Prodigal Son/Daughter of our Heavenly Father, then it must also be recognized that each of us at one time dwelled in the Kingdom prior to journeying out into this, the "far country".    Thus, we see this parallel concept in the above quotation from the Zohar where it states that each of us, like the Prodigal Son that we are, must return to our Source -- i.e.,  "The souls must re-enter the absolute substance whence they have emerged...."

In the parable of the Wedding Feast, those who come to TheCall, must have put on the required Wedding Garment -- and thus, we see the parallel concept in the Zohar in the words with respect to the required perfection of each soul: "But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them..."   To the degree that Jesus stated in the Sermon on the Mount at Matthew 5:48 that each soul must be as perfect as their Heavenly Father -- i.e., again parallel to the Zohar: "...and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”.

To even begin to comprehend this higher reality of the perfection of the soul over the course of many lifetimes, the person must understand the cycle of the Prodigal Son/Daughter as presented in the words: "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways," says the LORD.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.  For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it" (Isa 55:8-11 NKJ).   God cannot fail -- and nothing in Creation can be void -- and as the Prodigal Sons of the Most High, each of us emanated from the Edenic Kingdom of Origination -- and each us us must fulfill the requirement of perfection as presented at Matt 5:48 -- and if this required perfection is "...not fulfilled this condition during one life, [we] must commence another, a third, and so forth, until [our souls] have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”
And as the Prodigal Sons/Daughters of the Most High, each of us was forced to leave the Kingdom and venture out into this world which is portrayed in the parable as the "far country" -- not by our own choosing, but by the Will of God who brought this world which is a realm where each of us is able to grow and evolve to perfection -- i.e., “For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time” (Rom 8:20-22 NIV).   What the Apostle states in the above quotation is that it was the Creator God that subjected mankind to the frustration of what we perceive as the fall of man, in order that “the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage” through the process of the soul-evolution in this world which is God's Spiritual University that perfects and brings about our eventual spiritual rebirth into the Kingdom -- i.e., “We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time”.

  Christian Denial of Biblical Reality: Christians maintain that if the doctrine of the pre-existent soul were true, that it would be taught in their Bibles.   Yet, they are in absolute denial with respect to the reality that the Bible was edited and corrupted in order to make it support the doctrines of the fourth century Church of Constantine.   Absolute proof of this is overwhelmingly documented in the article on Biblical Corruption (see Bible Corruption), but the Christian world continues to remain in denial of the facts.   Modern day Christian doctrine rests upon the premise that God preserved the Bible in an absolute infallible and pure state, in order that all men should know the (historical) truth and believe in Jesus as the Son of God -- and the Trinitarian Godhead.  Their doctrinal position is that if God permitted the Bible to have been altered, then the present day church could not be genuine.  Based upon this dogmatic presumption that the Christian Church must be maintained in order for man to be saved, they reason that God would not allow the written word of the scriptures to be corrupted. The Truth is that if the Bible had not been corrupted, it would never have been adopted by the Greeks and Romans -- so just the opposite is true with respect to what Christians believe.   Thus, modern Christians cling to this doctrine of biblical purity -- ignoring overwhelming evidence to the contrary -- evidence that demonstrates conclusively that our Bible has been severely altered and edited -- because they fail to grasp the very foundational principles of the New Covenant itself -- principles that are not historical, but spiritual.  It is not until we understand that the Bible is a road-map that leads us to the Gate of the Kingdom (see http://GateOfEden.com ), and the Word and Torah of God is in fact written in our hearts -- rather than a final revelation from God to man -- that we are able to even begin to come to terms with the Spiritual Gospel of Messiah/Christ that can never be corrupted.

What Christians fail to understand is the fact that the most important and spiritual scriptures were never even given into the hands of the Gentiles who were both too heathen to comprehend the spiritual essence of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay, and the fact that even as early as the first century the Gentiles were editing their scriptures to make them conform to the doctrines of belief that they already embraced.   An important truth is contained in the Epistle of Peter to James where it is stated:  "Hear me, brethren and fellow-servants. If we should give the books to all indiscriminately, and they should be corrupted by any daring men, or be perverted by interpretations, as you have heard that some have already done, it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error.   Wherefore it is better that they should be with us, and that we should  communicate them with all the fore-mentioned care to those who wish to live piously, and to save others."

Those outside of the original Ebionite/Nazirene core of disciples and followers of Yeshua/Jesus, were quick to corrupt all the copies of the scriptures that were given to them.   And this fact is confirmed to us  by Dr. F. H. Scrivener where he writes that: "In the second century we have seen too many instances of attempts to tamper with the text of Scripture, some merely injudicious, others positively dishonest". Scrivener states that "it is no less true to fact than paradoxical in sound, that the worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected, originated within 100 years after it was composed: and that Irenaeus and the African Fathers, and the whole Western, with a portion of the Syrian Church" used inferior manuscripts (F.H.Scrivener, Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament).    Dean Burgon quotes Gaius (AD175-200) who speaks of the source of corruptions that survive in the early papyri: "The Divine Scriptures these heretics have audaciously corrupted. Laying violent hands upon them, under pretense of correcting them." (Burgon, The Revision Revised, p. 323).   Eusebius (Eccleastical History), citing the second century Church Father Clement of Alexandria: "The worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected originated within one hundred years after it was composed."   In the words of Colwell (What is the Best New Testament Text?, p.119)  "The first two centuries witnessed the creations of the large number of variations known to scholars today.  In the manuscripts of the New Testament most variations, I believe, were made deliberately."   G.D. Kilpatrick (Atticism and the Text of the Greek New Testament, pp 125-131):  "Deliberate changes in all text types appear to antedate A.D. 200..as distinct from errors... all categories of deliberate alteration...  are present in both groups. Tatian is the last author to make deliberate changes. The vast majority of deliberate changes were older then A.D. 200.  They came into being in the period A.D. 50-200."

It can be easily understood why the Ebionite/Nazirene disciples of Jesus not only did not give the Greek converts who edited and corrupted the text of their scriptures, but withheld the most spiritual and important to be preserved in their care.   Thus, Peter writes to James: "Knowing, my brother, your eager desire after that which is for the advantage of us all, I beg and beseech you not to communicate to any one of the Gentiles the books of my preachings which I sent to you, nor to any one of our own tribe before trial; but if any one has been proved and found worthy, then to commit them to him, after the manner in which Moses delivered his books to the Seventy who succeeded to his chair.  Wherefore also the fruit of that caution appears even till now. For his countrymen keep the same rule of monarchy and polity everywhere, being unable in any way to think otherwise, or to be led out of the way of the much-indicating Scriptures. For, according to the rule delivered to them, they endeavor to correct the discordances of the Scriptures, if any one, haply not knowing the traditions, is confounded at the various utterances of the prophets. Wherefore they charge no one to teach, unless he has first learned how the Scriptures must be used. And thus they have amongst them one God, one law, one hope."

The Gentiles not only severely corrupted the copies of the scriptures that they were given, but more importantly what Peter states is true with respect to their ignorance of the "traditions" within which the whole framework of the scriptures are composed, and like the Sadducees and Pharisees before them who Yeshua condemned for throwing away the Key of Knowledge, they did not know the manner in which "...the Scriptures must be used" -- and this remains true even in our present day. 

In the case of the Gospel of the Nazirenes which was reportedly hidden away from the corrupters in a monastery (see Intro To The Gospel Of The Nazirenes), we can see an important concept that was removed from the text of John 9:1 when the disciples asked if the man's blindness was caused by the sins he committed in a previous life prior to being born: "And at another time as Yeshua passed by, he saw a man who was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?  Yeshua answered, To what importance is it whether this man or his parents sinned? The rewards of our actions return again to us so that the works of the Lord are made manifest. I must work the works of the Lord while in this season. As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world."   And this is exactly the same as stating: "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7 NKJ).  

  The Walking Dead: In the Revelation we find the phrase "go out no more" -- as seen in the words: "He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more" (Rev 3:12 NKJ).   What does it mean that the person who overcomes -- i.e., overcomes what -- will go out no more?   I have never seen a Christian Bible commentary even mention this important verse.   Why?   Because if what is being said is true, and we go in and out (of our inner spiritual soul-reality) until which time we overcome, then this reality does not support modern Christian doctrine.   Yet, in other scriptures such as the Gospel of the Nazirenes that were not edited by the Church of Rome, this going in and out is made very clear: "As Yeshua sat by the west of the temple with his disciples, behold there passed some carrying one that was dead, to burial, and a certain one said to Him, Master, if a man die, shall he live again?  He answered and said, I am the resurrection and the life, I am the good, the beautiful, the true; if a man believe in me he shall not die, but live eternally. As in Adam all are bound to cycles of rebirth, so in the Messiah shall all be made alive. Blessed are the dead who die in me, and are made perfect in my image and likeness, for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them. They have overcome evil, and are made pillars in the temple of my God, and they go out no more, for they rest in the eternal.  For them that persist in evil there is no rest, but they go out and in, and suffer correction for ages, till they are made perfect. But for them that have done good and attained to perfection, there is endless rest and they go into life everlasting. They rest in the eternal.  Over them the repeated death and birth have no power, for them the wheel of the eternal revolves no more, for they have attained to the center, where is eternal rest, and the center of all things is God. And one of the disciples asked him, How shall a man enter into the Kingdom?" And he answered and said, If you don't make below as the above, and the left as the right, and the behind as the before, entering into the center and passing into the spirit, you will not enter into the kingdom of God."

When we pose the question that is presented to us in the Revelation: If the man who does not “overcometh... shall [again] go out”, then it is reasonable for us to ask what kind of life does he go out into?   It is in fact this very question that each of us should ask ourselves which the Church Father Origen, who was a renowned biblical scholar prior to the rewrite of the scriptures in the fourth century under the Roman Emperor Constantine, Origen explained about the process of going in and out when he wrote that “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).  

 When the Laws which create a type of Labyrinth in the life that each person is presently living out is understood, it can be said that this world is very much as a Living Bio-Feedback system that invokes and initiates Laws -- and these Laws then return back to each individual -- as well as each group on a primary and secondary level -- based upon the fruit of their own actions, mindset and lifestyle.   Which means that each individual person -- as well as each group, religion, school of thought, from small to that of a large nation -- i.e., the plight and struggles that each of us confronts throughout every aspect of the life we are presently living -- is all authored by our own previous actions in our own past.   And this is why Rabbi Ovadia Yosefan, the former chief rabbi of Israel -- a religious scholar who was also the spiritual leader of the Shas party -- made the statement that no innocent Jews died in the Holocaust.  What Rabbi Yosefan said was that the 6 million Holocaust victims "...were reincarnations of the souls of sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things that should not be done.”   Rabbi Yosefan explained that these souls who had previously lived lives of sin, “…had been reincarnated in order to atone” (see The Chickens Come Home To Roost).   In the same way that the Church Father Origen (see above) stated "...that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one", what Rabbi Yosefan stated was that as many as 6 million souls were born into a life in Germany where, because of their previous actions, both their lives and their death at the hands of Hitler were all orchestrated by the Laws or God, in order to atone for their own actions which are portrayed as sins in previous lifetimes.   Thus, when the Laws of God are properly understood, the life of each person in the present has been orchestrated by their own past -- and in the present each person (and groups of people) are creating their future lives that they will inherit based upon their own actions or inaction.

When quasi-religious or philosophical authorities attempt to answer the all-important question as to: Why Is There Evil In The World?   It is man's absolute ignorance of the Organic Laws Of Creation that inhibit him from answering this question of profound importance that shackles mankind to lives of extreme hardship and suffering.    When Jesus states that not even a single sparrow can fall to the earth apart from the Will of God, to ignore this statement and create carnal doctrines of belief, in an attempt to explain this statement away so it makes sense to man's very limited perception and understanding, is truly a desperate act of man's philosophical folly.    And to reject the wisdom of the scriptures, merely because in our condition of profound spiritual blindness, we lack the insight to understand what Jesus stated, represents the absolute epitome of man's ignorance.   Quoting from the subheading The Chickens Come Home To Roost on Divine Strategery: “Even as I have seen, those who plow iniquity and sow trouble reap the same” (Job 4:8 NKJ); “Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled to the full with their own fancies” (Prov 1:31 NKJ); “But you have planted wickedness, you have reaped evil, you have eaten the fruit of deception” (Hosea 10:13 NIV); “God will give to each person according to what he has done” (Rom 2:6 NIV); “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life” (Gal 6:7-8 NIV); “If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” (Rev 13:9-10 NKJ); “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man” (Gen 9:6 NIV); “His disciples asked him [Jesus], Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” (Jn 9:2 NIV).   Yet, because certain New Testament teachings were removed by the Pagan Church of Rome, modern Christians are at a total loss when they attempt to explain how the Laws work in the life of man -- and even the very reason why evil things seemingly happen to good people -- or why a benevolent God ordains the good and evil that man is incapable of understanding.

The God of the Old Testament proclaims with respect to the source of what man calls evil: "I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the LORD, do all these things.'" (Isa 45:7 NKJ).   And in his ignorance of the Laws, man condemns what he does not understand, and fails to understand the true source of what to his own demise he proclaims to be evil -- i.e., "Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?" (Amos 3:6 KJV).   Thus, there is nothing that exists in this world, that has not been orchestrated by the Laws of God -- i.e., "The LORD of hosts has sworn, saying, "Surely, as I have thought, so it shall come to pass, and as I have purposed, so it shall stand" (Isa 14:24 NKJ).   And until a man begins to understand the true source and purpose of what he calls evil, he cannot know anything of any true substance.

If, as Jesus confirms, that not even a single sparrow can fall to the earth apart from the Will of God, then the source and calamities of evil that befall mankind, are the result of the Laws that return to each person the fruit of their own previous actions.   Thus, Jesus warns the man who he previously healed by making him whole: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).   We must therefore ask: If our own actions can, and do cause "...a worse thing [to] come unto [us]", how is this tribulation brought about?  The answer is that there were Laws put into action at the very beginning of Creation which returns to each person the fruit of their own actions -- “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).

  The Parable Of The Talents: Even in what remains in the corrupted scriptures, it can still be seen that Jesus taught that each person is born into this life in accord with their own past accomplishments.   "And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey" (Matt 25:15 NKJ).   The key concept here is that each person in this world is not only entrusted with a different amount, but that each person is entrusted with an amount "...each according to his own ability."   What this means is that each and every person was born into this life, exactly as ordained for them in accord with their own past accomplishments, and those who find fault with their lot in life, are in reality judging themselves (see a more in-depth presentation on the parable of the talents at Christian Blindness To The Scriptures).  

One of the many paradoxes that confront the believer is explored in these biblical verses by the Wycliffe Commentary which writes: “Herein is the crux of the interpretation. If this reckoning is the judgment of the believer's works, then we apparently have a true believer suffering the loss of his soul because of the barrenness of his works. But that interpretation would contradict John 5:24. Or, if the unprofitable servant represents a mere professing Christian, whose real nature is thus unmasked, then it appears that the judgment of believers' works and the damnation of sinners occur together, although Revelation 20 separates these judgments by 1,000 years”.

What does John 5:24 say?  “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life” (John 5:24 NIV).   What we must recognize is the fact that there is only a contradiction with respect to our interpretation of the word belief.   The Bible is very clear that those people who claim an allegiance to the Lord, and yet continue to live in the manner of unbelievers, are themselves self-condemned; as seen in the words: “Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven” (Matt 7:21 NIV).   Thus, only those who actually live in accordance with the Royal Law of God, and do the Will of the Father, are those of whom John 5:24 states will be saved.

  A Most Important Warning To Christians:  Where in the above the Wycliffe Bible Commentary correctly makes note of the great conflict between the message of the scriptures and the doctrines of the Church where it is noted that "...we apparently have a true believer suffering the loss of his soul because of the barrenness of his works", even more important is the message at the end of this parable that proclaims: “That servant who knows his master's will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows. But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” (Luke 12:47-48 NIV).    When you put this message together with the warning of the Apostle Peter that "It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them." (2 Pet 2:20-22 NIV) -- the message that emerges from the Gospel is so radically different than what is preached in the Churches, that the Christian world is seen to be so spiritually disenfranchised by their manmade dogma, that they are not at all prepared to even read the very scriptures they have attempted to champion.   In the picture that emerges, not only is the  "...true believer suffering the loss of his soul because of the barrenness of his works", but his fate is worse off than those portrayed as unbelievers who are deemed sinners by the very limited and inept understanding of the Church.    Not only is it demonstrated that the believing Christian is held to much higher standards than the unbelieving sinner, but it is clearly stated that the believing Christian is subject to the greater damnation -- i.e., “That servant who knows his master's will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows. But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows".   And is we even pose the question as to what is the fate of the believer who has been  "...beaten with many blows", versus the unbeliever who "...does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows", it is impossible for the Church to even begin to answer the very serious questions that are raised by this warning of Jesus.  

In the removal of important key Gospel teachings and concepts, the Church of Rome has not only left a great void in the understanding of the modern Christian world which totally inhibits their ability to come to terms with these foundational truths taught by Jesus and his disciples, but this great void in their understanding of the very core Gospel concepts has made the modern Christian little more than ladder-day blind guides.   The fact that it is impossible for the modern Christian to explain why they are being held to a higher standard than the unbeliever who "...does things deserving [much] punishment" -- and as supposed believers, their fate is far worse than these unbelievers -- indicates that the doctrines of the modern Church is demonstrated by the Gospel message itself, as being in grave error.   Which means that the only valid explanation is that given by the Church Father Origen above who had access to more pure copies of the scriptures before they were totally corrupted in the fourth century, where he explains that "...The conclusion from which, accordingly, is this, that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor" (see Early Church On Predestination).   And this is the only explanation in the warning of the parable of the Talents (Mt. 25:14-30 - see Christian Blindness To The Scriptures And The Parable Of The Talents), where the servant who put his talent into the earth, instead of multiplying what he had received through spiritual works, was cast into the "outer darkness" -- i.e., "Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.  And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matt 25:28-30 NKJ).     

Totally contrary to modern Church doctrine, the above reality confirms what Peter warned in the words: "If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: A dog returns to its vomit, and, A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud" (2 Pet 2:20-22 NIV).   Where the modern Church promotes the doctrine that they are saved by Grace regardless of the manner in which they live their lives, Peter not only states that this doctrine is in grave error, but correctly states that: "It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them."

Other than the foregoing writings and explanations of the early Church Father Origen, this answer to this Christian dilemma is presented in scriptures which the modern Church rejects.   There are verses pertaining to the plight of the servants that still exist in the Gospel of the Nazirenes, which explain the inconsistencies that abound in Christian doctrine and understanding of why each of us enters this life at greatly differing levels of spiritual awareness.   Thus, we again see the words: "And that servant which knew his lord's will and did not prepare himself, nor followed his will, will be beaten with many stripes. But he that did not know, and did commit things worthy of stripes, will be beaten with few stripes. For to whomsoever much is given, of him will they much require, and to whom they commit little, of him they will require the less.  For they who know the Godhead, and have found the way of life, the mysteries of light, and then have fallen into sin, shall be punished with greater chastisement than they who have not known the way of life.  Such shall return when their cycle is completed, and to them will be given space to consider, and amend their lives, and learning the mysteries , enter into the kingdom of light."    And thus, the cycles of life are explained in the Gospel of the Nazirenes in the words: "As Jesus sat by the west of the temple with his disciples, behold there passed some carrying one that was dead, to burial, and a certain one said to Him, Master, if a man die, shall he live again?  He answered and said, I am the resurrection and the life, I am the good, the beautiful, the true; if a man believe in me he shall not die, but live eternally. As in Adam all are bound to cycles of rebirth, so in the Messiah shall all be made alive. Blessed are the dead who die in me, and are made perfect in my image and likeness, for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them. They have overcome evil, and are made pillars in the temple of my God, and they go out no more, for they rest in the eternal.  For them that persist in evil there is no rest, but they go out and in, and suffer correction for ages, till they are made perfect. But for them that have done good and attained to perfection, there is endless rest and they go into life everlasting. They rest in the eternal.   Over them the repeated death and birth have no power, for them the wheel of the eternal revolves no more, for they have attained to the center, where is eternal rest, and the center of all things is God.   And one of the disciples asked him, How shall a man enter into the Kingdom? And he answered and said, If you don't make below as the above, and the left as the right, and the behind as the before, entering into the center and passing into the spirit, you will not enter into the kingdom of God."

It was the many verses such as the above that were contained in the more pure copies of the original Gospels, that prompted the Church Father Origen to proclaim: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).    And this is why Paul warns that the complacent believer who continues to sin after coming to the knowledge of the Gospel, "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).     And with the important teaching on the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection (Mt. 5:48) removed, there simply is no means left for the modern Christian believer to understand the core Gospel teachings which is imperative for them to comprehend. 

  The Sin Of Lust:  It is interesting to note that the most popular and used scripture of the earliest Gentile Christians was the Shepherd of Hermas (see Shepherd Intro), which was later suppressed by the Church of Rome because it was unacceptable from a pagan mindset and lifestyle.   And in addition to revealing the threefold nature of the scriptures (see Threefold), the understanding of caring for the poor, the widows and orphans, that is not at all understood today, is presented in this important writing (see Widows).  

The proper mindset with respect to the Laws, is expressed throughout the scriptures.   The Ten Commandments thus state: "You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's" (Exod 20:17 NKJ).   Why?   Because each man's life is the direct result of their own previous actions and accomplishments -- and that they fail to remember these pre-existent actions, is because they dwell in the "outer darkness".    And this is further confirmed in the Shepherd of Hermas which commands: "The expenditure of the heathen then practice not ye; for it is not convenient for you the servants of God.  But practice your own expenditure, in which ye can rejoice; and do not corrupt, neither touch that which is another man's, nor lust after it; for it is wicked to lust after other men's possessions."

By virtue of the Laws that orchestrated and dictated every part of the life that every man, woman and child is presently living, every person is at their present station in life, by virtue of the road they personally traveled to get there.   The conditions of your birth, as well as the life you are living, has been brought about, orchestrated, and maintained, by the Laws of God -- Laws that insure that each and every "...man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).

And everything that exists, not only exists for a higher reason -- but has been brought about and is the direct result of pre-existing causal reasons, which have become manifest in order to bring about a preordained result.    When you desire or lust after what the Laws of God has provided for your neighbor, or any other group of people, then you not only reject the Hand of God that provided in accord with your own needs, but you have sinned against God because you reject His Wisdom in what was provided for others. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Plato's Cave Of Illusions

 

Why Plato?   The average Christian will ask: What does Plato have to do with the Gospels and Jesus?  The Gospel of John of course uses the term Logos interpreted as The Word.  The Encyclopedia Britannica (1998 edition) writes of the word Logos: “In Greek philosophy and theology, the divine reason implicit in the cosmos, ordering it and giving it form and meaning. Though the concept defined by the term logos is found in Greek, Indian, Egyptian, and Persian philosophical and theological systems... The idea of the logos in Greek thought harks back at least to the 6th-century-BC philosopher Heracleitus, who discerned in the cosmic process a logos analogous to the reasoning power in man. Later, the Stoics, philosophers who followed the teachings of the thinker Zeno of Citium (4th-3rd century BC), defined the logos as an active rational and spiritual principle that permeated all reality... Philo of Alexandria, a 1st-century-AD Jewish philosopher, taught that the logos was the intermediary between God and the cosmos, being both the agent of creation and the agent through which the human mind can apprehend and comprehend God. According to Philo and the Middle Platonists, philosophers who interpreted in religious terms the teachings of the 4th-century-BC Greek master philosopher Plato, the logos was both immanent in the world and at the same time the transcendent divine mind... The identification of Jesus with the logos, which is implied in various places in the New Testament but stated specifically in the Fourth Gospel, was further developed in the early church but more on the basis of Greek philosophical ideas... the early Christian Fathers stated that Christ as the preexistent logos (1) reveals the Father to mankind and is the subject of the Old Testament manifestations of God; (2) is the divine reason in which the whole human race shares, so that the 6th-century-BC philosopher and others who lived with reason were Christians before Christ; and (3) is the divine will and word by which the worlds were framed”

The concept of the Logos is so deeply imbedded in Greek thought, that the Eleventh, or Scholars Edition of the Britannica which was published prior to the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls writes that: “Among the influences that shaped the Fourth Gospel that of the Alexandrian philosophy must be assigned a distinct... importance”. Because of this very distinct Hellenic influence, many Bible experts believed that the Gospel of John had been written by a Greek convert. This is especially seen in the statement by the Britannica where it writes: “What John thus does is to take the Logos idea of Philo and use it for a practical purpose -- to make more intelligible to himself and his readers the divine nature of Jesus Christ. That this endeavor to work into the historical tradition of the life and teaching of Jesus -- a hypothesis which had a distinctly foreign origin -- led him into serious difficulties...”.   Like the modern Atheist who attempts to portray religion as borrowing doctrines from each other (see Is the Gospel Copied From Other Religions), the idea that John borrowed the concept of the Logos from the Greeks, or even that the Gospel of John was written by a Greek convert because of his use of the word Logos, was widely accepted by biblical scholars -- and this opinion was only proved faulty with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls.   Thus, in the words of Dead Sea Scroll expert Prof. John Allegro in is book, The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Origins of Christianity, where he writes: “It is a fact that the Qumran Library has profoundly affected the study of the Johannine writings and many longheld conceptions have had to be radically revised.  No longer can John be regarded as the most Hellenistic of the Evangelists; his Gnosticism, and the whole framework of his thought is seen now to spring directly from a Jewish sectarianism rooted in Palestinian soil, and his material recognized as founded in the earliest layers of Gospel traditions.”

The term Logos literally means The Mind Of God -- and Mind when properly understood, is the Third-Force Balance of the Male/Female Forces and Realities within the Divine Pattern of Creation.   And since the teachings of Jesus that the entrance to the Kingdom is within each of us -- and that as the prodigal sons, each of us has the ability to escape the "outer darkness" and be restored to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination -- then all who seek the Truth and the Kingdom by living the necessary Consecrated Life in TheWay, are guaranteed to find both the Truth and the Kingdom. 

With respect to the above, from our modern perspective, few people recognize the profoundly important statement by that of  Clement of Alexandria when he wrote: “Thus in the Philebus, Plato, who had been the disciple of the barbarian philosophy, mystically called those Atheists who destroy and pollute, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that is, the Logos - by association with their vices”Thus, the message of Clement is threefold: (1) Clement writes that the true source and inner revelation of the writings of Plato, is the same Logos attested to in the Gospel of John; (2) Moreover, we observe the continual statement that the Logos represents the Deity that is equally indwelling within all of mankind; (3)  Clement then very much describes our own present-day condition when he refers to the multitude of people as “Atheists who destroy and pollute, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that is, the Logos -- by association with their vices”.   If man is ignorant of God -- and cannot break through the inner barrier which permits him to receive the impressions of the Logos -- then this ignorance is the result of that person's lifestyle and mindset.   The problem is that once the damage has been done, it is difficult to restore the purity and necessary framework of mind that would bring about success.    In the same way that would be impossible to revive a fetus that was torn from it's mothers womb, it is near impossible for a child who has been imbued with the mindset and the vices of our modern cultural lifestyle, to then reverse and heal the damage that has been inflicted upon him, and restore within himself the necessary mental foundation and necessary lifestyle environment that enables the person to tap into the Indwelling Logos.   Thus, from our modern cultural perspective, those who escape the abortionist that tears the fetus from their mother's  womb, rarely ever escape the abortionist of our culture of ignorance that robs the child of the life of it's soul.    In teaching the child to think and live in accord with our anti-Spiritual and anti-Gnostic culture, they become imbued with an Atheist mindset regardless of their profession of faith and belief in God.   

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

The True Prophet

 

  The True Prophet: The objective of all genuine religions is to bring about that condition within the mind and life of the individual where they are able to fulfill the statement in the Gospel of John, and be "taught by God" -- i.e., "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me" (John 6:45 NKJ).   What does it mean to come to the Logos/Son of God?   Because the body of modern faith-based Christians have been alienated by Church dogma, and no longer understand the means by which a seeker is to come to the Logos/Son of God, they remain confused and lost.   Why?   Because they go to the teachers of this world -- they read scriptures which are interpreted differently by as many people there are who read them -- they read the books, opinions and the commentaries of men -- they take theology courses in schools and universities -- and they fail to understand the process that guides seekers in TheWay, where they can enter the Presence of the Logos/Son of God, and learn directly from the Source of all Truth and Light.   And it was for this reason that Jesus commanded his disciples not to be called teacher or rabbi -- i.e., "But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have One Teacher, and you are all brethren" (Matt 23:8 RSV) -- and this was commanded, because there is Only One True Teacher, and that is what the original followers of Jesus portrayed as the True Prophet.    And that those lost prodigal sons who look to other men as their teacher, rabbi or leaders, will be greatly deceived and misguided, is why the disciple Peter in the Clementine Homilies declared: Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples”.

In the original biblical Greek language there existed a differentiation with respect to types of knowledge -- i.e., (1) there was knowledge gained through other men; and (2) then there was the mystical Knowledge gained directly from God.   And with respect to these two very different types of knowledge: The knowledge of man that was taught and imparted by other men, was portrayed very differently than the knowledge that could be portrayed as the Divine Manna of the Kingdom that could ONLY be imparted to man directly from the Logos (aka the Son Of God & True Prophet) -- i.e., this Heavenly Spiritual Knowledge was called Gnosis.   Therefore, when the Gospel of John states that the true seekers and disciples of the Christ will be "taught by God" -- and they will come to the Logos/Son of God -- the reference was to those who escaped the "outer darkness", entered the Inner Kingdom, and came into the Presence of the Logos/Son of God.   But in our modern world, the word Gnosis is often totally misused and misunderstood, to the degree that many in the Christian world today condemn the Divine Manna of the Kingdom as heresy.  

The second century Christian Bishop Valentinius quoted Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians when he made reference to Gnosis Kardias -- or, the enlightened eyes of the heart.   "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints" (Eph 1:18).   And that Paul wanted very much to speak about the Mystery of the Gospel to the Ephesians, but could not, is the reason he portrayed himself as an ambassador in bonds: "And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak" (see Eph 6:19-20).   Which raises the question: How was a seeker/disciple supposed to obtain these enlightened eyes of the heart?   Very briefly, by becoming the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower And The Seed, that permits the necessary expansion of the facilities of mind to be brought about, which enables the seeker/disciple to be taught by the Indwelling Logos (aka Son of God/True Prophet).   And in the same way that in the parable of the ten virgins it was said to those who had failed to prepare themselves with the oil of purification that "Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you" -- even though they believed and had called upon the Lord and was awaiting his coming, this reality of the believer who has failed to prepare himself, is further explored in the early Christian scripture known as the Shepherd of Hermas.  

In the introduction of the early Christian writing known as the Shepard of Hermas, it is written: “The Pastor of Hermas was one of the most popular books, if not the most popular book, in the Christian Church during the second, third, and fourth centuries... In ancient times two opinions prevailed in regard to the authorship. The most widely spread was, that the Pastor of Hermas was the production of the Hermas mentioned in the Epistle to the Romans. Origen states this opinion distinctly, and it is repeated by Eusebius and Jerome”.   If, then, it is true that the Pastor or Shepherd of Hermas was one of the most important scriptural authorities over the first four centuries -- i.e., pre-Nicene and prior to the take-over of the Church by the Emperor Constantine -- then we can use this Gospel in our endeavor to better understand the essence of early Christian teachings.   And if modern Christians are no longer in agreement with the doctrinal tenets set forth in this most important writing during the pre-Nicene time-frame, then it is because of the direct influences of Constantine who was not even a baptized Christian when he set the limits and doctrines of the Church which he ruled over.

Therefore, for those few sincere believers who desire to be taught directly from the Logos/Son of God, what the Shepherd of Hermas has to say about the nature and objectives of Christian teachings during the pre-Nicene time-frame, is ultra-important to us today.   Why?  Because it represents the scriptural tradition that was taught directly by Jesus and the faithful flock by the Original Apostles of Christ.  Thus, on the nature of scripture, in the Shepherd we find: “I am senseless, sir, say I, and do not understand these parables. For how she can crush out, and on the other hand save, I do not perceive. Listen, says he. Those who have never searched for the truth, nor investigated the nature of the Divinity, but have simply believed, when they devote themselves to and become mixed up with business, and wealth, and heathen friendships, and many other actions of this world, do not perceive the parables of Divinity; for their minds are darkened by these actions, and they are corrupted and become dried up. Even as beautiful vines, when they are neglected, are withered up by thorns and divers plants, so men who have believed, and have afterwards fallen away into many of those actions above mentioned, go astray in their minds, and lose all understanding in regard to righteousness; for if they hear of righteousness, their minds are occupied with their business, and they give no heed at all. Those, on the other hand, who have the fear of God, and search after Godhead and truth, and have their hearts turned to the Lord, quickly perceive and understand what is said to them, because they have the fear of the Lord in them. For where the Lord dwells, there is much understanding. Cleave, then, to the Lord, and you will understand and perceive all things”.

The message that is very clear from this early Christian writing is that it is impossible to mature spiritually, while attempting to divide oneself between the two worlds.   In our present day culture we are living proof as to the validity of the wisdom that is portrayed in this writing -- i.e., one cannot perceive the true meaning of the parables and the inner significance of the historical narrative of the scriptures, while one devotes their lives to their “business, and wealth, and heathen friendships, and many other actions of this world” -- which would include the whole array of addictions provided by all the many leisure’s and entertainments that captivate and control our every-day lives.   With respect to the foregoing, we dwell and are immersed in the absolute epitome of a "heathen culture" -- a culture that totally rejects the Ten Commandments, promotes a secular-atheist mindset, and has virtually nothing in common with the teachings of the Gospels.   Do we live in a culture that truly advances the teachings to do unto others as we would want others to do unto us?   Do we seek to live our lives in spiritual purity?   Do we make ourselves the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower And The Seed?   Do we send our children (the souls who were placed in our care) off to government secularized schools to become imbued with the thinking, mindset and lifestyle of the heathen culture in which we presently live?   

In the Shepherd of Hermas a reference is made to a tower, of which it is written: “And the tower, I asked, what does it mean? This tower, he replied, is the Church. And these virgins, who are they? They are Holy Spirits, and men cannot otherwise be found in the kingdom of God unless these have put their clothing upon them: for if you receive the name only, and do not receive from them the clothing, they are of no advantage to you. For these virgins are the powers of the Son of God. If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name”.    In the scriptures what is allegorically portrayed as a virgin, is represented as existing in a state of undefiled (spiritual) purity.   

In understanding what is written in these pre-Nicene teachings, it is most important for us to be aware of the continual message found in the words: “If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name”.   Thus, if you call yourselves Christian, but fail to purify and develop your mind and body from the thinking, mindset, lifestyle and defilements of this world -- and do not possess the true Knowledge of the Spiritual Christ by putting on the garments associated with the virgins in the parables -- and have not yourselves inherited the same higher powers of mind that the Son of God promised all his followers would possess -- then “it will be in vain that you bear His name”.   And again, this is demonstrated in the words spoken to those who believed upon the coming of the Lord, and even called upon his name, but had failed to bring with them the oil of purification, where it was stated: "Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you"  

When the Book of Revelation declares: "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" -- in no manner can it be concluded that to call upon the name of the Lord by reciting the Jesus-prayer (see Sinners Prayer), in any manner constitutes to "overcome"!   And this spiritual fact is reflected throughout the Shepherd of Hermas.   Further, it is in the Revelation that it is warned and stated that: "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).   The Church of Constantine has so alienated the body of modern Christians from the original teachings, that the body of believers remain absolutely clueless as to the nature and reality of the Tree of Life (see Tree of Life), or how it must be accessed in order to be nourished by its fruit -- aka, the Divine Manna of the Kingdom that is portrayed in the above as the "Gnosis Kardias" that opens the eyes of the heart of the sincere seeker.   That the fruit of the Tree of Life must be consumed by the faithful believer, in order to gain entrance to the Inner Kingdom and learn directly from the Logos/Son of God/True Prophet, is a spiritual reality which the modern Christian is simply not in any measure prepared to comprehend because of the dogma of Pagan Rome that is taught in their Churches today.   Further, that modern Church dogma has absolutely nothing in common with the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay, is demonstrated conclusively in the original Gospel Sacraments, and especially the profound statement of Paul where he warns: "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).    How can those people who claim to be believers, and yet totally misuse and abuse the Gospel Sacraments, promoting them as pagan mojo's which are completely opposite to their intended meaning and purpose, be even counted as believers?  

The Wisdom and Knowledge that the True Prophet (Son of God/Logos) imparts to those who are worthy, in the biblical Greek language is called Gnosis -- and Gnosis is one of those spiritual realities that cannot be redefined by man.   Gnosis cannot be written in the words of man -- or even taught by one man to another -- because Gnosis is defined as Spiritual Knowledge, or the Divine Manna of the Kingdom, that can only be received directly from the True Prophet to those who are themselves true spiritual seekers.   In the words of the second century Elder Valentinus: "Gnosis was distinct from the secret teachings they only revealed to initiates once they had reached a certain level of progression."   And the whole objective of the teachings of TheWay as revealed by Jesus, was to prepare the mind of the disciple to receive the revelation of Gnosis -- i.e., the Divine Manna of the Kingdom -- from the indwelling True Prophet/Logos/Son of God that is dormant within the minds of all of mankind.   Therefore, the words that I am writing cannot in any measure be defined as Gnosis.   Neither is what I write the Revelation of Divine Manna that is necessary to nourish the mind of the sincere and genuine seeker.   What I am writing about is the mindset and lifestyle necessary to begin to draw nearer to the Indwelling Logos, and begin to receive the Divine Manna or Gnosis of the Most High God.

Quoting from the above subheading entitled Plato's Cave Of Illusions, Clement of Alexandria writes: “Thus in the Philebus, Plato, who had been the disciple of the barbarian philosophy, mystically called those Atheists who destroy and pollute, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that is, the Logos - by association with their vices”Thus, the message of Clement is threefold: (1) Clement writes that the true source and inner revelation of the writings of Plato, is the same Logos attested to in the Gospel of John; (2) Moreover, we observe the continual statement that the Logos represents the Deity that is equally indwelling within all of mankind; (3)  Clement then very much describes our own present-day condition when he refers to the multitude of people as “Atheists who destroy and pollute, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that is, the Logos -- by association with their vices”.   If there is therefore factual truth to thestatement that those who through their mindset and lifestyle "...destroy and pollute, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that is, the Logos -- by association with their vices” -- it must be recognized that this important teaching is parallel to the witness of the Apostle Peter who warns in the Homilies of his disciple Clement, that the Logos/Son of God/True Prophet is "...within the mind of every one of us, but in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative; but He works in those who seek after that which is profitable to their souls, and kindles in them the light of knowledge. Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other. But He is soon found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth, and whose souls are not taken possession of by wickedness. For He is present with those who desire Him in the innocence of their spirits, who bear patiently, and draw sighs from the bottom of their hearts through love of the truth; but He deserts malevolent minds, because as a prophet He knows the thoughts of every one. And therefore let no one think that he can find Him by his own wisdom, unless, as we have said, he empty his mind of all wickedness, and conceive a pure and faithful desire to know Him. For when any one has so prepared himself, He Himself as a prophet, seeing a mind prepared for Him, of His own accord offers Himself to his knowledge”.   If the witness to these words is true, then the whole dilemma of the pseudo-intellectual, religious critic and Atheist is presented in the Light of Truth that cannot be dismissed -- in view of the fact that their ignorance is not only self-imposed, but has been forewarned. 

As the lost prodigal son, mankind will aimlessly wander the earth in the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- not remembering how they became lost in this, the Far Country -- dwelling under the power of the consciousness of the earth (aka Satan and the Citizen of the Far Country) -- until which time they have matured sufficiently to return to their Essence and Source of Mind and Being.    In fact, it is warned by the Apostle Peter that the body of believers who have yet to put on the required "wedding garment" of purity (see Wedding Garment) -- in contradistinction to the counterfeit wedding garment of Pagan Rome -- and sought out the Indwelling True Prophet as their ONLY TEACHER and Revealer of Truth, cannot even comprehend the True Meaning of the scriptures.  

Peter warned that anyone who seeks out any other teacher (see Baptism As A Divine Marriage) of this world instead of the Indwelling Logos, has in effect defiled the "wedding garment", and remains totally alienated from the true spiritual meaning of the scriptures.   Resulting in the fact that all the commentaries, dogmatic teachings, creeds and doctrines, do more to alienate the believer from the Kingdom and the Truth, than to in any measure assist them.   And this is why Peter explains in the Homilies of his disciple Clement that: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".   What this means is that the scriptures and Gospels cannot be comprehended when read from a human perspective (see Truth Cannot Exist In This World) -- and the sincere Christian seeker is prohibited from taking teachings and wisdom from outside of their own mind, and attempting to apply what is portrayed as "...a foreign and extraneous sense", and attempt to apply these manmade teachings to the scriptures.   Which means that all the biblical commentaries, all the catechisms and official church teachings and doctrines, all alienate the believer from the Truth and the Kingdom.  

  The One Who Came: When rightly understood, this higher spiritual reality is presented in the Gospel of John in the Holman Christian Standard Bible translation in the words:   "You don't have His word living in you, because you don't believe the One He sent. You study the Scriptures because you think you have eternal life in them, yet they testify about Me. And you are not willing to come to Me so that you may have life" (John 5:39-40 HCSB).   While Peter in the above states that the Logos or True Prophet is equally within every man, the foregoing translation presents those who Peter portrays as being  "...inoperative", as not having what the HCSB translation correctly states is "...His word living in you".    So long as Living, denotes Active, vs those who Peter portrays as being dormant because of the mindset and lifestyle of the individual.   And especially dormant because as modern Christians, believers have been alienated from the Indwelling Logos by the dogma and teachings of Rome as manifest in the catechisms and doctrines of their respective Churches, which have virtually nothing in common with the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay.    

When the foregoing translation of John 5:39 states that "You don't have His word living in you...", that does not mean that the Word Living in you is the same as "...the One He sent".   Which is why the original disciples and followers of Jesus believed that "..the One He sent" -- i.e., the historical man Jesus who was the One who was sent, attained “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366).   The third century author and Church authority Hippolytus makes reference to the original first century disciples of Jesus who were Ebionite Nazirenes, and writes that it was their position that the man Jesus "was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely.  Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ." Hence, they maintained that when any of the other lost prodigal sons "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity."  (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).  

The Key to understanding how the historical man Jesus who was "...the One He sent", became At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God who is the "...word living in you...", which Peter portrayed as the True Prophet that dwells "...within the mind of every one of us", is by fulfilling the Royal Law by turning the scriptures within your own mind and being as the Key of Knowledge ( KeyOfKnowledge.org ).    The problem was that the vast majority of Gentiles were too spiritually immature, and too carnal in their thinking, to understand the reality of an Inner Kingdom, and the teaching that the Logos (aka Son of God & True Prophet) exists at the Core of our Being.   And it was because the holy man Jesus had attained this condition of At-Onement with the Indwelling Logos, that the Logos was able to "...direct his [Jesus'] actions during the allotted period of his ministry”   In order to recreate the man Jesus as the actual Logos, the Church of Rome edited and changed the very words spoken by God to mankind, where when baptized in the Jordan Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) when the Father said of Jesus: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee" (see http://TheTenWords.com ).   Which means that in accord with the original Gospel teachings which reported the words of God spoken to mankind, Jesus was a man who became the Christ at his baptism -- i.e., he was "...the One He sent".  

Where the Gentiles were led astray by the (pagan) dogma of men, they were incapable of comprehending the spiritual reality that they did not need a teacher -- as stated in the Epistle of John: "These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you.  As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him" (1 John 2:26-27).  The word Anointing is of course the English translation of the Hebrew word Messiah, and the Greek word Christ.   In the case of the historical man Jesus, he had attained such a pure and spiritually evolved condition, that the Indwelling Logos which exists at the Core of all of mankind, was able to totally manifest and speak through him (Jesus).   And that the Indwelling Logos is the Source of all Truth, is why in the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter is quoted as stating: Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples” (see The Search For The True Prophet).   And this is why Jesus commanded his disciples and followers never to be called or act as a teacher: "But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have One Teacher, and you are all brethren" (Matt 23:8 RSV).       

Returning back to the statement in the Gospel of John where it is written: "You don't have His word living in you, because you don't believe the One He sent. You study the Scriptures because you think you have eternal life in them, yet they testify about Me. And you are not willing to come to Me so that you may have life" (John 5:39-40 HCSB).    It is clear that studying the scriptures cannot provide you with eternal life -- but only those who are "...willing to come to Me so that you may have life".    In the original teachings, the historical man Jesus entered the Presence of the Indwelling Logos, and attained a condition of At-Onement by fulfilling the Law within himself.   Instead of interpreting the scriptures outwardly in an historical sense, and observing them in ritual and tradition in the manner of the Jews and spiritually immature Christians, Jesus used the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge which opened and unlocked the inner "narrow gate", thereby providing escape from the "outer darkness" of this world, and entrance into the Presence of the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet.   And this Journey in TheWay is presented at the subheading on the Key of Knowledge website entitled The Third Fatal Mistake - Not Proving The Truth:

While the Christians, like the Jews before them who threw away the Key of Knowledge, look for the Kingdom to come outwardly upon the earth, the Gospel itself states that the Kingdom will never come upon the earth, because it is within you -- and it is therein that you must seek it: "And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, See here! or, see there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21).   If the words of Jesus are true -- and the Kingdom is within you -- then the question that Christians should be asking, is how must the Kingdom be entered?   The answer is the proper application of the Key of Knowledge by turning the scriptures within your own mind and being -- i.e., "How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering" (Luke 11:52).  Thus, in understanding these words spoken to the Pharisees, the questions must be asked: How did the Pharisees and Jewish authorities "...hide the key to knowledge from the people"?   Why did Jesus condemn the leaders of the Jews for failing to enter the Kingdom themselves? -- i.e., "...You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves"!   And how did the religious leaders of the Jews "...prevent others from entering?"   That the primary objective of the Gospel is to prepare and enable the seeker/disciple to enter the Kingdom, is further demonstrated in Jesus' condemnation of the blind religious leaders as seen in the words: "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to" (Matt 23:13 NIV).  Which means that the Kingdom of God is not something that will come if we wait for it -- but rather, it is a reality which man must seek and find -- within himself.

In the Bible translation known as The Message, the above reality of Jesus' words with respect to the usage of the Key of Knowledge is portrayed in true clarity.   In this translation when Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him and said: "If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you" (John 8:31-32 TheMessage) -- and once again, neither Christian or Jew who have thrown away the Key of Knowledge can understand these words which are of the utmost importance.   Jesus didn't say that they would believe the truth -- or that they would discern what they believed would be dogmatic truth out of the scriptures or some book written by other men -- but rather, Jesus conveyed to them that if they follow in TheWay, that they "...will experience for yourselves the truth, ...and it is this SELF-EXPERIENCED TRUTH that...will free you" from the error and ignorance that consumes the people of this world -- and especially the blind guides who portray themselves as rabbis,  teachers, clergy, religious leaders and authorities.     

Taking the above one step further, I fully realize that many Bible translations simply refuse to interpret Luke 17:21 correctly.   In analysis of this great biblical controversy, Robertson’s Word Pictures of the New Testament writes: “What Jesus says to the Pharisees is that they, as others, are to look for the kingdom of God within themselves, not in outward displays and supernatural manifestations. It is not a localized display ‘Here’ or ‘There.’ It is in this sense that in Luke 11:20 Jesus spoke of the kingdom of God as ‘come upon you,’ speaking to Pharisees”.   The article then goes on to add that the only other instance of the Greek word “entos” being used in the New Testament, is at Matthew 23:26, where the Pharisees are told to clean “the inside of the cup”.   Moreover, the Wescott and Hort Greek text, as well as most other authorities, render the translation of this word: “inside of you is”.   Which means that the original teachings of TheWay was a system whereby the seeker/disciple takes the yoke of Messiah/Christ upon themselves -- picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay -- which enables the disciple to enter through the "narrow gate" and dwell in the Kingdom, while still physically alive in the body -- overcoming the division of heaven and earth within the person -- i.e., the Lord commanded his followers to "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NIV).    Because the Church threw away the Key of Knowledge, and adopted pagan dogmatic doctrines of belief, the Christian world sits idly complacent on the side of the "broad-way  ...that leads to destruction" -- giving lip service and worshiping their brother, that they must themselves imitate, in order to enter into Life.    And it was for this reason that the Adam Clark Commentary stated that if the original Gospel portrayal of the historical man Jesus was correct, that "...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless"!!! (see The Ten Words).   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Teachings Of The AntiChrist

 

  The Teachings Of The Anti-Christ:  In the above we are confronted with the original New Covenant teaching that there is ONLY ONE TEACHER -- and this ONE TEACHER is within the mind and being of all of mankind.   In the Gospel account Jesus commands his followers and disciples to seek out the ONE Teacher -- i.e., "But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have One Teacher, and you are all brethren" (Matt 23:8 RSV).   And in the first century original teaching on Baptism as the required Wedding Garment (see Baptism As A Divine Marriage), the act of attempting to learn from a teacher of this world, is a sinful defilement of the Wedding Garment.   Which means that all the teachers, rabbis, instructors, masters, commentaries, catechisms, dogmatic interpretations of the scriptures, are all the work of the Anti-Christ.   Which means also that the Fundamentalist teaching that the Bible is the infallible Word of God -- a set of scriptures that has not only been corrupted by the god of this world (see BibleCorruption.com) -- but even the very words of the Father which were spoken to mankind has been changed by the ministers of Satan who masquerade as Church authorities -- has shackled believers to the abyss of spiritual ignorance.   In the above I have demonstrated where a human and/or historical interpretation of the Gospels and scriptures, is the same act of throwing away the Key of Knowledge which Jesus condemned the leaders of the Jews for doing.   And in the above I have demonstrated that the true spiritual meaning of the scriptures can only be revealed to those who have "opened the eyes of the heart", and have learned directly from the Indwelling Logos.   And when the scriptures are used as the Key of Knowledge -- turning them within one's own mind and being -- that the scriptures become a text-book that enables the disciple to gain entrance to the Inner Kingdom.   

While there are sincere and dedicated Christians who strive daily to serve the Lord.  Very often they are the most giving and kindest people you will encounter -- often doing good for the sake of doing good.   And while doing good for the sake of doing good is Godly, the problem is seen in the fact that sincerity alone cannot fulfill the objective stated by the Apostle Paul that each Christian should move on towards spiritual maturity.   Why?   Because they have been severely hindered by the dogmatic opium of Roman Emperors that has undermined the Gospel Message with the suppression of important teachings, and the corruption of the scriptures (see BibleCorruption.com ).  But this was foreseen by the Apostle Paul when he wrote that there would come a day in the near future where the Church which portrays itself as Christian will worship the AntiChrist in place of God (see The Church Of The AntiChrist).  With respect to the statement of Paul, the Adam Clark Commentary writes: “[Except there come a falling away first] We have the original word apostasia in our word apostasy; and by this term we understand a dereliction of the essential principles of religious truth, either a total abandonment of Christianity itself, or such a corruption of its doctrines as renders the whole system completely inefficient to salvation.   Or, as stated by John Wesley, Paul was portraying "...that fatal period when the Emperor Constantine called himself a Christian; From this time onward - the Christians had no more of the Spirit of Christ than the heathens...." (Wesley's Works, vol 7, Sermon 89, pp. 26-27).  

From an historical perspective, the perfect example of the clergy of the third century is that of Paul Of Samosata (see Typical Orthodox Clergy), where Edward Gibbon writes in his The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire that Paul "...may serve to illustrate the condition and character of the times ...Paul considered the service of the church as a very lucrative profession ...Against those who resisted his power, or refused to flatter his vanity, the prelate of Antioch was arrogant, rigid, and inexorable; but he relaxed the discipline, and lavished the treasures of the church on his dependent clergy, who were permitted to imitate their master in the gratification of every sensual appetite. For Paul indulged himself very freely in the pleasures of the table, and he had received into the Episcopal palace two young and beautiful women, as the constant companions of his leisure moments".   Thus, Paul of Samosata who Gibbon states is merely an example of the clergy who portrayed themselves as Orthodox, corrupted the teachings and the very spiritual objectives of the Gospel -- i.e., "...Laymen were told by the priests that only the priests really knew what was necessary for salvation and that laymen must accept the "mysteries" on faith and on the priests' authority. This kept the laity baffled by the nonsensical "mysteries", confused, and dependent on the priests for information about the requirements for salvation."

While non-Roman Catholics will respond to the above by countering that they have rejected the dogma of the priests, and they derive their beliefs directly from the New Testament Gospels.   Yet, when the Church of Constantine endeavored to make the teachings of the Gospels in sync with fourth century Roman Pagan thought and culture, to ignore the facts with respect to the manner in which the corrupters of the Word recreated the message of the scriptures in order to make it compatible to church doctrine, is to make oneself disingenuous to the very Son of God to whom we proclaim to be faithful to.  The truth and the facts to the matter is very clearly expressed in the words of Prof. Bart D. Ehrman in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, where he warns us that: "...theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy" -- which orthodoxy was to bring the text of the Bible into conformity with the doctrines and tenets of the Church of the Roman Emperor Constantine. To close our hearts and minds to the facts, and ignore the truth, is from a New Covenant perspective synonymous with relinquishing any claim whatsoever with respect to being a follower of Jesus.

When did the corruption of the scriptures begin?   There is strong evidence which confirms the charge that the Gospels were corrupted as soon as they were given into the hands of many of the Gentile Churches.   Something which no sincere believer today should take lightly is the charge against Christians by Celsus, the second century Epicurean philosopher, who alleged that: "Certain Christians, like men who are overcome by the fumes of wine and care not in the least what they say, alter the original text of the Gospels so that they admit of various and almost indefinite readings. And this, I suppose, they have done out of worldly policy, so that when we press an argument home, they might have the more scope for their pitiful evasions".   Celsus concludes that because of the wholesale rewriting and corruption of the text of the scriptures, that this fraud has made all of Christianity a bogus lie: "It is clear to me that the writings of the Christians are a lie, and that your fables are not well-enough constructed to conceal this monstrous fiction: I have even heard that some of your interpreters, as if they had just come out of a tavern, are onto the inconsistencies and, pen in hand, alter the originals writings, three, four and several more times over in order to be able to deny the contradictions in the face of criticism." (R.J.Hoffmann's Celsus: On The True Doctrine, Oxford University Press, 1987).   

What teachings were removed from the Gospels?   From a spiritual perspective, the most important.    Moreover, when that segment of the Church which portrayed itself as Orthodox entered into a covenant with the Emperor Constantine, they used the most corrupted versions of the New Testament as a starting point, and then further corrupted the text in order to make it support the tenets of Pagan Rome.    But herein lies the problem: If the Gospels were corrupted -- with many of the most important spiritual teachings edited or removed in order to make them support the tenets of Pagan Rome -- then how can the modern Christian even begin to know the Truth?   The answer is found in the words:  “Then many of the Jewish leaders who heard him say these things began believing him to be the Messiah. Jesus said to them, 'You are truly my disciples if you live as I tell you to, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free’” (John 8:30-32 TLB).    And if we augment this statement with the text of the that translation known as The Message, we can begin to understand the solution to the dilemma -- i.e., "If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure.  Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you."   The key message is in the words that the seeker must "live out what [Jesus taught] ...then you will experience for yourselves the truth".   And in this respect, the Law is that you can never possess any greater Truth than you are willing to live and manifest in your daily life.   So while it is true that the Gospel was corrupted in order to make it support the dogma of the Emperor Constantine and Pagan Rome, it is also true that with the restoral of the suppressed teachings and a desire on the part of Christians to "live out what [Jesus taught] , there is the promise of the Gospel that "...you will experience for yourselves the truth".

 

 

Each of us is the lost prodigal son and daughter who is lost in this, the Far Country -- and each of us must eventually "come to our senses", travail in TheWay, bringing about the necessary subsequent stages of birth, in order to re-enter the Inner Kingdom, and learn directly from the Logos of God that exists at the Core of our Mind and Being.   In the same way that in the parable, the prodigal son fell under the control and influence of the Citizen of the Far Country that Paul portrayed as the god of this world, the objective of the Anti-Christ or Collective Consciousness of this world that is often portrayed as the prince of the Left Hand, is to keep man and woman captive and alienated from the Inner Source of our True Self and Being.   In the above subheading entitled The Divine Pattern Of Mind And Being, it is demonstrated that the Impressions generated by man and woman act as a type of food for the Outer Consciousness of this world -- which means that what is often portrayed as Nature-Man, can in many ways be likened to a type of herd-beast that is an integral part of Nature.   But because the Divine Design of this physical world causes it to act as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism, it also serves as an important aspect of human development that drives mankind to his ultimately level of Spiritual Maturity.   And this is why Paul portrays the historical man Jesus as our Elder Brother -- with Jesus himself stating that: "Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17).  

When rightly understood, this physical world is God's Divine School House that evolves the prodigal sons and daughters through the stages of spiritual maturity that is necessary to bring about the subsequent stages of birth.   Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3).   With the culmination of these births portrayed in the Gospel of Thomas saying 22 (see Saying 22): They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?" Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female ...then will you enter the kingdom."  And when rightly understood, what is being presented is the reuniting the divided realities of Adam and Eve on all levels within you, permitting a return to what is portrayed as the Garden of Eden (see http://GateOfEden.com ).  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Great Escape From

The Outer Darkness Of Mind And Being

The Under-World Of The Illusions Of Plato's Cave

The Parable Of The Call

Man Dwells In The "Outer Darkness" Of Consciousness

Those who fail to understand the meaning and reality of what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" -- and how and why mankind has been cast into and is subject to this condition of mind and being -- fail to understand the very reasons for their own blindness.    

In the Gospel of Matthew the term "outer darkness" is used three times in conjunction with those who did not seek truth and to walk in TheWay -- and in many respects, the reality of the "outer darkness" parallels that condition of mind that is portrayed in the analogy of Plato's Cave.   The above Alchemical portrayal of the man escaping this world and entering the Celestial Kingdom, is in fact one of the primary objectives of both the parable of TheCall, and the escape from the illusions of Plato's Cave.  

One of the major differences between the parable of TheCall and the analogy of Plato's Cave is seen in the long ignored fact that what is portrayed in TheCall portrays the plight of two very different types of people -- i.e., those who were invited, and those who were not.    Yet, the modern Christian world has never addressed the question as to why some people were portrayed as being invited to the Wedding Feast -- and to these people alone were the servants sent forth to make TheCall to the Wedding Feast -- and when they did not come, they were destroyed (see Fate Of Christians Worse Than The Unbelievers).   How does one group of people become invited?   Why wasn't all the people invited?   Why were those who were invited portrayed as being destroyed when they did not come?   And only when those who were invited did not come -- and there was room among the guests -- was this second group of people who were not called were permitted to come -- and even then, they were still required to put on what is portrayed as a Wedding Garment.   And when they were found without a Wedding Garment, they were then cast out into the "outer darkness" with the words: "'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'  For many are called, but few are chosen".   The fact that modern faith-based Christians cannot answer these questions, demonstrates that they have themselves been spiritually disenfranchised by the infusion of pagan dogma that was forced upon the Church by a series of Roman Emperors.  

Once understood, what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" is also the reality presented in the words: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" (Prov 14:12).   Thus, it is imperative that we ask the question: Why does EVERYTHING that the religious person, the philosopher, the scientist, and the whole of organic man see as being right, the scriptures portray as all being "...the way of death"???   And with respect to what organic natural man thinks he knows, it is because of what Jesus portrayed as the all-pervading "outer darkness" of mind and being that Paul warned: “And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know” (1 Cor 8:2 NKJ).   Why would Paul even make such a statement?   Moreover, it is clear that Paul was speaking about Christians whose thinking was based upon the reasoning of this world -- i.e., "Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise" (1 Cor 3:18) -- and unless you come to understand why Paul portrayed any reasoning and thinking based upon man's "natural" organic perceptions and understand (see Mystery Of The Gospel) to be blind error, then truly what you think you know is grave error:  “And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know”

Unless you first come to understand why what "...seems right to man [to the natural organic mind of man]  ...is the way of death" (Prov 14:12) -- even when you are a baptized and committed believing Christian -- then you will perpetually dwell under the cloud of profound spiritual ignorance and sectarian error!!!    And this warning of Paul remains as true today, as they were in the time-frame that they were spoken -- and these warnings pertain not only to the adherents of all of man's religions, but are just as relevant and all-pervading to what the world's scientists and philosophers teach in our schools and universities -- and when the great void and reality of the "outer darkness" is understood, all of mankind dwells under the delusion that they possess actual knowledge of any real and genuine substance.   And it is in fact this cloak of profound ignorance that consumes this world, that was the reason that it is warned in the Epistle Of Peter And James that if the esoteric knowledge that could only be revealed to those who were portrayed as being In The House was lost,that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error" (see Always To Wander In Error).    And while Christians will attempt to explain this shroud of ignorance that envelops them away, their rejection is merely the effects of their being immersed in the "outer darkness" of mind and being.  

When the disciples asked Jesus why he taught the multitudes that were said to be "without" in parables, Jesus explained: “For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts...” (Matt 13:15-17 NIV) -- and thus, what Jesus revealed is that mankind in his organic "natural" state of mind, was inherently blind, deaf and unable to understand man's own higher soul and spiritual reality.   And that it is further impossible for even baptized and committed believers to understand the true meaning of the Bible -- and all of life -- and this long ignored biblical fact is clearly demonstrated and explored at the subheading entitled The Mystery Of The Gospel And the all-important key to understanding the reality of the "outer darkness" is presented in the parable of the Wedding Feast when a person was found at the table who had not put on the required wedding garment -- i.e., "So he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?' And he was speechless.  Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'  For many are called, but few are chosen" (Matt 22:12-14 NKJ).   The Wedding Garment is representative of the body-condition that would be portrayed as the Final Temple.     And thus, because the man had not yet achieved this perfected state of spiritual maturity that is portrayed as the Wedding Garment, he was cast out into the "outer darkness" where "...there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."    But what does this mean?   In an early scripture which was widely utilized by the Spiritual Christians known as the Pistis Sophia (Faith Wisdom), Jesus is quoted as stating: “But if he shall have sinned once, twice, or thrice, they shall reject that soul, sending it back again into the world according to the form of the sins that it may have committed; the form whereof I will declare unto you hereafter.   But verily, verily I say unto you, that even the righteous man that hath committed no sin at all cannot be brought into the Kingdom of Light, forasmuch the seal of the mysteries of that kingdom is not found upon him.  Once for all, I say unto you, a soul cannot be brought into the kingdom, if it be without the mysteries of the Kingdom of the Light”.    And while the modern Christian world will immediately reject the teaching that each person is returned back into this world in accord with the condition (or sins) they may have committed, this fact is also presented in the Book of Revelation statement that those who overcome will go back out no more (see The Walking Dead).    Thus, in the words of the early Church Father Origen: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).  

Christians fail to know the past lives which their soul has lived, because they have been confined to the "outer darkness" of mind and being where ignorance of self and the higher reality of the soul is paramount.   If, on the other hand, they were to fulfill the requirement of putting on the "wedding garment" of spiritual purity, and become the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower And the Seed, -- which would provide them entrance and access to that higher condition of mind that is portrayed as being  In The House -- they would not only begin to perceive the past lives that their soul has lived -- but they would begin to learn from the One Teacher that Jesus said to seek out (see The True Prophet).  

The requirement set forth by Jesus was presented in the words: "Be you therefore perfect, as your Heavenly Father is Perfect" ( Matt 5:48) -- but because the dogmatized Christian world dwells in the "outer darkness" of mind and being, they neither understand the process of how this perfection is achieved, nor do they perceive and understand the very meaning and objectives of the Gospels.   In the Book of Revelations it is noted that those who overcome will no longer go out of the Kingdom any more -- i.e., "He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more" (see The Walking Dead - Rev 3:12 NKJ) -- and if the Book of Revelation had not been edited by the Church (see http://BibleCorruption.com ), it would better reflect the original teaching which is preserved in the Gospel of the Nazirenes in the words: "...They have overcome evil, and are made pillars in the temple of my God, and they go out no more, for they rest in the eternal.  For them that persist in evil there is no rest, but they go out and in, and suffer correction for ages, till they are made perfect."   But since this important teaching was outlawed and anathema by a Roman Emperor, the Christian world has been exiled in a Spiritual Diaspora of profound ignorance -- unable to escape the blindness of the  "outer darkness" where "...there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth".    

Those who have been returned to this life because they failed to overcome, are required to both learn their lessons and pass the required tests which permits them to prevail over the Laws.   In the same way that if a student had a jip sheet that enabled him to cheat on the tests presented to him, that he would make no real progress with respect to the objective of their educational and scholastic goals, if a person was born in a knowing state where he could recall his past lives, no real progress could be made by the prodigal sons and daughters towards achieving the higher objectives of life in this, what Jesus portrayed as the Far Country.   Therefore, if the prodigal sons and daughters who previously failed to overcome, possessed the knowledge that would permit them to cheat on the tests of life, then no real progress could be achieved -- and thus, they are therefore portrayed as being cast into the "outer darkness" of mind and being.

An important key to understanding what Jesus meant by the "outer darkness" is presented at John 9:1-2 where the disciples are portrayed as having asked Jesus who sinned for the man to be born blind?   The man, or his parents?   And once again while the modern Christian will immediately reject the implications of this question and statement of Jesus, because the modern Christians have themselves been very much born blind, they simply fail to understand the reality that is being presented to the reader.   While the questions posed by the disciples is representative of the necessary Biblical Foundational Mindset, in failing to understand Jesus' reply with the necessary spiritual depth, they alienate themselves from the whole of the spiritual meaning of the Gospels.  

The answer to the enigma of the man who was born blind -- not because of sin, but for what Jesus portrayed as the Glory of God -- once properly understood, presents the answer to the enigma of the human condition the plagues all of humanity.   Thus, quoting the subheading entitled The Double Edged Sword Of The Law - Left Hand of God

What man ignorantly portrays as evil, is merely the Laws of Correction of the Left Hand returning to each individual person, as well as large groups of people, the fruit of their own ways.   And this is necessary in order for the lost prodigal sons and daughters to overcome the Laws -- reverse them in the manner of a two edged sword: "He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints" (Rev 13:10 NKJ).  

Few people understand the reference to the sword, because they fail to understand the Laws of Correction of the Left Hand, and the reality portrayed in the words: "He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity...".   These organic Laws of Heaven and Earth are explained on the web site Divine Strategery under the subheading of The Laws -- and as presented, few people possess the understanding, because they dwell in what Jesus portrayed as The Prison -- and all of man in his untransformed carnal state, dwells in the Outer Darkness of mind and being -- under the control of a mindset that can very rightly be portrayed as a Demiurge of their own making.    These teachings which portray the Laws, are especially presented in the parable of The Call -- which parable portrays walking in TheWay from the reality of the need to bring about undefiled Wholeness and Purity in the requirement to come to the Wedding Feast, and put on the necessary Wedding Garment.  

The first stage of purity must be understood as the Conditions of Birth.   While the meaning of John 9:1-3 has remained disputed because of its reference to sin before birth, the unedited and uncorrupted version in the 53rd chapter of the Gospel of the Nazirenes where it reads: "And at another time as Yeshua (Jesus) passed by, he saw a man who was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?  Yeshua answered, To what importance is it whether this man or his parents sinned? The rewards of our actions return again to us so that the works of the Lord are made manifest. I must work the works of the Lord while in this season. As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world" (see Rewards Of Our Actions).

What are "...the works of the Lord [that] are made manifest"???   The Laws are imbued with the requirement to evolve and perfect every soul through the initial stages of the Alpha, to the Wholeness and Completion of the Omega -- and this is accomplished directly by "...the rewards of our actions [which are perpetually] return[ed] again to us".   If our actions are an impingement to bringing about the next stages of birth which enables each prodigal son to escape the shackles of the Citizen of the Far Country or god/consciousness of the earthly kingdom, and return to their Source of Being, then it is the Laws of the Left Hand which man ignorantly portrays as evil, which takes the necessary corrective reactions to our own actions.   And thus, the explanation (of the Laws and Powers of what man perceives to be evil) provided by the Apostle Peter (in the Homilies of his disciple Clement): "But that this is so, has been said even by the law in the person of God: ‘I will kill, and, I will make alive; I will strike, and I will heal. For, in truth, He kills and makes alive. He kills through the left hand, that is, through the evil one, who has been so composed as to rejoice in afflicting the impious. And he saves and benefits through the right hand, that is, through the good one, who has been made to rejoice in the good deeds and salvation of the righteous."  
In the above, if a person is born blind because of the question presented by the disciples: "...And his disciples asked him saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?"   This question was asked by the disciples in reference to those who were portrayed as being imprisoned (see The Prison).    But in Jesus' answer in John, it is clarified that this man was not born blind because of being imprisoned -- but rather, because he shares the plight of all mankind with respect to the inherent conditions of the organic physical body and mind which dwells in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness): "Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work" (John 9:3-4 KJV). 

Having only attained the first stage of birth in the physical, all of mankind is born inherently blind to their own higher soul and spiritual reality, and what is portrayed as the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God (see Mysteries).     It is interesting to note that the Pharisees who it is documented well understood that each person is born into this world in accord with their previous actions (see Biblical Foundational Mindset), said to the man who had been healed: "You were completely born in sins, and are you teaching us?" (John 9:34 NKJ).   The fact that the majority of people who read the scriptures do not have this same biblically indigenous mindset -- and attempt to understand the scriptures from a totally different foundational mindset and thinking -- makes it near impossible for them to perceive and comprehend the true meaning of the scriptures (any scriptures) and the Bible. 

In the same way that the Apostle Peter in the above explained that Simon Magus was ordained by the Prince of the Left to bring tribulation to those who were imprisoned (see The Prison) -- and test those who have only underwent the first stage of physical birth and dwell in the "outer darkness" -- Peter explains about Simon: "He is a power of the left hand of God, and has authority to do harm to those who know not God".   This Left Hand Power and Authority is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son.   In the same way that in the Book of Job what is portrayed as Satan is dispatched into the world to test Job -- who perseveres against the Laws (Satan), and overcomes by bringing about the next stage of birth.

 

Who dwells in the "outer darkness"?   Once the Laws are understood, virtually everyone is born into this condition.   In the parable of TheCall -- sometimes called the Wedding Feast -- the "outer darkness" is used in conjunction with the person who failed to put on the required wedding garment (Mt. 22:1-14 ) -- which ends with the warning that "For many are called, but few are chosen" (Matt 22:14 KJV).   And as equally important is the fact that in the parable of the Talents (Mt. 25:14-30 - see Christian Blindness To The Scriptures And The Parable Of The Talents), the servant who put his talent into the earth, instead of multiplying what he had received, was cast into the "outer darkness" -- i.e., "Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.  And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matt 25:28-30 NKJ).  

What this means is that if you are basing your reasoning on the doctrines of a Church or religious group -- or the wisdom of men as taught in societies schools, colleges and universities -- or even upon the acclaimed wisdom found in the books of man that fill great libraries -- then you are putting your talent into the earth, and you will continue to dwell in the illusions of the "outer darkness" of mind and being.   Perpetually believing that you know the truth, while walking the way of death: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" (Prov 14:12).   And while it is true that, as the prodigal sons and daughters, you possess the innate ability to draw back the curtain of illusions that immerse the organic mind's of the people of this world under the cloud of profound ignorance, until you first come to understand the reason you dwell in the "outer darkness", it will remain impossible for you to escape its all-pervading cloak that inhibits you from knowing both the truth, as well as even your own true soul-identity and higher spiritual reality.    Further, because of organic man's profound ignorance of the Laws that control all events, lives and realities of this world, a differentiation is made between those people who dwell in the "outer darkness", and those who are portrayed as being imprisoned by the Laws of this world -- i.e., “Thou shalt by no means come out from there, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (Mat 5:26 - see The Prison).

While the vast majority of mankind as represented in the portrayal of the lost prodigal sons dwell in a state of organic blindness and mental limitation, often many of man's religious and secular leaders dwell in what Jesus portrayed as The Prison.    It is important to understand that in the Apostle Peter's reference to Simon Magus -- i.e., "He is a power of the left hand of God, and has authority to do harm to those who know not God" -- all the manmade institutions and worldly religious, philosophical and secular leaders of this world are for the most part very much as Simon Magus is portrayed -- i.e., "...a power of the left hand of God"  If these counterfeit institutions and pseudo-leaders were not present in the world, then there could be no growth and development.   Yet, it is virtually impossible for those who Jesus portrayed as the lost prodigal sons to make any real and genuine advancement, until they begin to develop their intuitive spheres of mind that begins the process of putting them in touch with their true inner self and the Kingdom within (see The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind).    In the same way that in the parable, the prodigal son who had been lost in the Far Country under the control of the Citizen of the Far Country who Paul portrayed as the god of this world, it was within the power of the prodigal son to return to the Kingdom of the Father when he was prepared to make the journey in TheWay, this higher reality is true of every person who has ever lived upon the face of the earth.   In fact, only when a seeker/disciple comes to the realization that the Truth and the Kingdom is within him -- and all that is necessary is to overcome the conditions that have caused him to be inherently and organically blind, deaf and without understanding of his own higher soul and spiritual reality, is to seek out the Truth and the Kingdom -- and these organic limitations and obstacles will begin to be removed.   And thus, while it is true that those who have been imprisoned will be required to pay back the last farthing, as demonstrated in the words that they  “...shalt by no means come out from there, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (Mat 5:26 - see The Prison) -- and it is these whose blindness was caused by their own, or the sin they were born under -- i.e., "...And his disciples asked him saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?".   The only obstacles that those who have been cast into the "outer darkness" must overcome, is the Laws and the testing that initiates and brings about true spiritual growth and development.

Jesus called the Pharisees who had thrown away the Key of Knowledge "blind guides" who were leading the people into the proverbial ditch of this world.    And this is also true of the countless religious, secular, cultural and philosophical leaders that men and women blindly follow in the world today.   It is therefore important to understand the difference between a person portrayed as being imprisoned, and one who has been cast into the "outer darkness".    What is the "outer darkness"?   What it represents is the outer dimensions of mind and consciousness that is associated with the natural organic mind of man.  Paul described the Christians who had yet to undergo the process of transformation, as being of a "natural" mind -- carnal, and too immature to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom (see Organic Consciousness).   With respect to this suppressed condition of mind and being, the scriptures warn that it is the reason why the people of this world will look upon the Mysteries of God as utter "foolishness"!!!    All of mankind are equally the Prodigal Sons and Daughters of our Heavenly Father.   We are presently dwelling in the "far country" -- dwelling under the power of what the parable portrays as the "citizen" of this world.    Paul called it the god of this world.  The first Spiritual Christians called it the Demiurge, because this Power of the Left Hand is the creator of illusion that keeps the Prodigal Sons and Daughters as slaves to the things of this world.   And as the prodigal sons who dwell in the "far country... outer darkness" of mind and being, all of mankind dwells in a state of ignorance with respect to the inner reality of his soul and spiritual natures -- as well as the Inner Kingdom (Lk 17:20-21).    As a lost prodigal son who is presently dwelling in the Far Country -- cast into the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- you remain totally unaware of not only your true identity, but also how you came to be under the control of the "Citizen of the Far Country."     And part of the all-pervading power that is presently keeping you shackled to the illusions of this world that is responsible for deluding you into thinking that you know the truth, is represented in the words: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death".

When Jesus said of his disciples: “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12 NIV) -- that word translated secret, is the same word translated mystery, and makes reference to esoteric knowledge that is beyond man's organic comprehension.    What Jesus stated was that his disciples could see and understand the secrets and mysteries of the Kingdom of God because they had escaped the "outer darkness" that the rest of mankind as the lost prodigal sons were enslaved in a world of illusions under the control of the "Citizen" or power/god of this world.    Those who Jesus portrayed as being "outside", could only be taught in parables, because they had themselves been cast into what the Bible calls the "outer darkness" of consciousness.   Thus, until, in the manner of Jesus' portrayal of the prodigal son, each individual is ready to arise and "turn about", mankind both as an individual, and collectively as a whole, will remain under the illusion of unknowing and ignorance of his true self -- surrendering his inheritance as the Offspring of the Most High -- until which time he is ready to return Home to his Source of Being.  Jesus warned those who want to be his disciples and followers, not to believe the teachers and authorities of this world, because they have all been deceived by the god of this world -- i.e., the keeper of the School House of this world.   Jesus taught that there is the Power of the Left Hand that Rules this world -- and the Power of the Right Hand that draws the true seeker who has put on his "Wedding Garment" into the Marriage with the Divine Bridegroom of our inner souls.   Which means that to hear and come to TheCall, all we need to do is apply the Key of Knowledge in our lives, strive to live the Consecrated Life that Jesus Ordained, seek the Divine Manna of Heaven which is given only to those who are worthy to receive it, and seek the Kingdom within.

 

 

 

 

The Cave Represents

The Intellectual Limits Of Natural Organic Man

To Escape The Cave

You must Understand the Laws

You must work within the higher pattern of mind

You Must Know Thyself

When properly understood, the analogy of Plato's cave is very much parallel to that of what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).   All of mankind are equally born in ignorance, and dwell in a world of illusions that are more factually allusions, which are not understood.    Not to understand the analogy of Plato's Cave and the reality of what Jesus called  the "outer darkness", is to dwell in a state of profound ignorance.   While the people of what has been portrayed as the simple-faith see religion as a system of salvation, what they fail to understand is the fact that salvation can only be achieved by awakening and prevailing over the human condition of ignorance -- a condition brought about primarily through self-ignorance.   In the Gospel of Thomas Jesus teaches: "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world" -- and Jesus then makes the profound statement: "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you".   And what the people in this world fail to recognize and understand, is that from the higher reality of your own soul, all things are known and seen for what they truly are.   And while every person alive has the innate potential to open this inner door of knowing -- and like the seeker at the right, escape this world of illusions -- so few ever make the journey, that those who do, are portrayed as "madmen" when they return to the Cave and attempt to convey to others what they perceived and experienced in the higher Realm of Soul-Reality.   

One of the primary objectives of all genuine religions is a means to enable the seeker/disciple to escape this world of illusions.    The picture on the right is a well known alchemical presentation of The Escape -- and is representative of the innate ability of man to bring about his own transformation that enables him to enter through what the Gospels portray as the "narrow strait gate" within his own mind and being.    In the parable of the Wedding Feast which is often called The Call, this transformation of self is portrayed as putting on the required "wedding garment".

Plato, the Greek philosopher, wrote a series of `Dialogues' which summarized many of the things which he had learned from his teacher, who was the philosopher Socrates.  One of the most famous of these Dialogues is the Allegory of the Cave -- but only a handful of people are astute enough to perceive the reality that they are themselves, immersed in the illusions of the Cave.  

In this allegory, mankind are portrayed as being chained in a cave so that they can only see the shadows which are cast on the walls of the cave by a fire burning behind them.  Plato likens people of a natural organic mindset who can see and perceive the outer world only with the earth-bound senses of their physical body -- senses which are comprised of earth-matter -- people who think and reason only with the very limited resources of the natural (physical) mind -- as prisoners who are chained in a cave, unable to turn their heads to see the Source of what they perceive and think they understand.   In reality, all they can see is the wall of the cave.  Behind them burns a fire.  Between the fire and the prisoners there is a parapet, along which puppeteers can walk.  The puppeteers, who are behind the prisoners, hold up puppets that cast shadows on the wall of the cave.  The prisoners are unable to see these puppets, the real objects, that pass behind them.  What the prisoners see and hear are shadows and echoes cast by objects that they do not see.  Because they are unable to see the source of reality, the prisoners mistake the appearance of the shadows cast on the wall of the cave for reality.  They mistakenly think the images they see on the wall (the shadows) were real -- and they know absolutely nothing of the real causes of the shadows.   So when the prisoners talk, what is it that they are talking about?   About the shadows that have been cast upon the wall of the cave.   If an object is carried past behind them, and it casts a shadow on the wall, a prisoner says "I see that"!   But what is he talking about?   While the prisoner is under the delusion that he is talking about something real and tangible, he fails to perceive that what he senses is the shadow that has been cast upon the wall of illusion.

It is noted that the whole of the language of man makes reference to the shadowy symbols, assuming that these shadowy symbols are the real thing.  Plato's point: the general terms of our language are in reality not "names" of the physical objects that we can see.   They are actually names of things that we cannot see -- things that we can only grasp with the mind -- but not the mind or organic (physical) man which is earth-bound in it's perception.  The prisoners may learn what a book is by their experience with shadows of books.  But they would be mistaken if they thought that the word "book" refers to something that any of them has ever seen.  Likewise, we may acquire concepts by our perceptual experience of physical objects.  But we would be mistaken if we thought that the concepts that we grasp were on the same level as the things we perceive.   Intellectuals ascribe to their wisdom in their books -- religious people place great faith in their scriptures -- yet, the books and scriptures of this world are nothing more than shadows of books of wisdom, and shadows of the Living Word that man must seek to Know the Truth.

To these people, the shadows represent the totality of their existence -- and it is impossible for them to imagine a reality which consists of anything beyond the fuzzy shadows on the wall.   Those who seek the Knowledge of what is Real, rather than the illusion of the shadows, are those who were prisoners, and have escaped the limitations of the intellectual cave that shackles the great majority of mankind in the abyss of ignorance.   The Knowledge acquired by those who succeed in breaking the shackles of physical limitation -- i.e., the Sacred Manna or Gnosis -- is the Experiential Wisdom and Knowledge they learn when they go out of the cave of this world via an inner dimension of self that is unknown to the masses and their religious, intellectual, cultural and political leaders, and into the inner reality which is portrayed by Plato as the light of the sun, where they are then able to gaze upon and behold man's true reality -- the reality of self expressed in the words of the Gospel of Thomas: "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world."   And upon escaping from the intellectual cave that shackles mankind, when they try to go back into the cave and tell the other captives the truth, they are mocked as madmen.   This fact you can observe throughout the history of man, as well as in the present time.   We are all initially prisoners and this tangible world that we perceive as physical reality is our cave.  And while the spiritual path of the Disciple in search of the Spiritual Manna/Gnosis of Higher Truth, begins when one who was a prisoner escapes out into the sun, this is in effect only the beginning of the journey as the mature soul begins to amass Gnosis, which is purely spiritual knowledge gained as they ascend into the true Light of true reality.   What is equally interesting is the literal interpretation of Plato's tale: The idea that reality could be represented completely as "shadows" on the walls.   Reality exists in another dimension beyond our vision, but we are so hypnotized by the world of shadows, that we fail to perceive the inner reality that is the source of everything in the life that we live.    

When properly understood, the mesmerizing effect of the world of shadow-images that people mistake for being valid in this realm, is parallel to the statement in the Gospel of Philip in the words: "Names given to the worldly are very deceptive, for they divert our thoughts from what is correct to what is incorrect. Thus one who hears the word "God" does not perceive what is correct, but perceives what is incorrect. So also with "the Father" and "the Son" and "the Holy Spirit" and "life" and "light" and "resurrection" and "the Church (Ekklesia)" and all the rest - people do not perceive what is correct but they perceive what is incorrect, unless they have come to know what is correct. The names which are heard are in the world [...] deceive. If they were in the Aeon (eternal realm), they would at no time be used as names in the world. Nor were they set among worldly things. They have an end in the Aeon."  And this is true to the degree that Clement of Alexandria warned , Stromata V.14: "We are not to think of God according to the opinion of the multitude".   Why?  Because even at best, the opinions of the multitude are based upon Cave logic and reasoning, and are wholly immature and without higher perception and understanding.  

While countless people have attempted to make sense as to the meaning of Plato's Cave -- and while the Christians basically ignore the implications of what Jesus called the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- without first understanding why the Cave of Illusions exists, what its purpose is, and what objectives the Cave is intended to bring about in the life of each individual, then it will remain virtually impossible to escape the Cave and begin to enter the world of true reality.   What man does not understand is the fact that his physical birth was only the first phase of birth, and when he immerged out of the womb of his mother, he then entered the Womb of Mother-Earth which is a Mental Reality (see The Womb Of Mother-Earth - Man And Woman - Transformation And Rebirth).   And in this world aspects of mind are impressed into the forms of nature, where they present to man mental-imagery that permit him to mentally develop.   From the perspective of Plato's Cave, the illusions being danced upon the wall, are in actuality allegorical images that present thoughts and the embodiment of mind.   Thus, while it is true that man dwells in a shadow world, the images that he sees, is all thought-imagery impressed into the forms of this world (see The Allusion Of The Forms Of Matter).    That one must begin to perceive and understand the meaning of the images presented to man, in order to escape the Cave/Outer Darkness, is the reason the Gospel of Thomas declares: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The True Religion

 

What Is The True Religion?   The primary element of what can be portrayed as the True Religion, is the seeking of Truth.   When biblical scholar and Dead Sea Scroll expert A. Powell Davies attempted to warn the Christian world that “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” -- and another scholar and expert Prof. John Allegro stated that the Dead Sea Scrolls provide overwhelming evidence that “...may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church.   This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers.   The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine” -- what the biblical scholars confirmed is the fact that the dogmatic doctrines and theology of the Church has virtually nothing in common with the core teachings and objectives of the Original Gospel Message of the Good News!   But in view of the fact that the original followers of Jesus were all hunted down as heretics because they refused to accept the religion of the emperor, it should come as no surprise that I make the statement that modern Christianity has virtually nothing in common with both the pre-Nicene Church (325CE), or the original teachings of TheWay.  

While there are sincere and dedicated Christians who strive daily to serve the Lord.  Very often they are the most giving and kindest people you will encounter -- often doing good for the sake of doing good.   And while doing good for the sake of doing good is Godly, the problem is seen in the fact that sincerity alone cannot fulfill the objective stated by the Apostle Paul that each Christian should move on towards spiritual maturity.   Why?   Because the modern Christian has been severely hindered by the dogmatic opium of Roman Emperors that has undermined the Gospel Message with the suppression of important teachings, and the corruption of the scriptures (see BibleCorruption.com ).  But this was foreseen by the Apostle Paul when he wrote that there would come a day in the near future where the Church which portrays itself as Christian will worship the AntiChrist in place of God (see The Church Of The AntiChrist).  With respect to the statement of Paul, the Adam Clark Commentary writes: “[Except there come a falling away first] We have the original word apostasia in our word apostasy; and by this term we understand a dereliction of the essential principles of religious truth, either a total abandonment of Christianity itself, or such a corruption of its doctrines as renders the whole system completely inefficient to salvation.   Or, as stated by John Wesley, Paul was portraying "...that fatal period when the Emperor Constantine called himself a Christian; From this time onward - the Christians had no more of the Spirit of Christ than the heathens...." (Wesley's Works, vol 7, Sermon 89, pp. 26-27).  

From an historical perspective, the perfect example of the clergy of the third century is that of Paul Of Samosata (see Typical Orthodox Clergy), where Edward Gibbon writes in his The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire that Paul "...may serve to illustrate the condition and character of the times ...Paul considered the service of the church as a very lucrative profession ...Against those who resisted his power, or refused to flatter his vanity, the prelate of Antioch was arrogant, rigid, and inexorable; but he relaxed the discipline, and lavished the treasures of the church on his dependent clergy, who were permitted to imitate their master in the gratification of every sensual appetite. For Paul indulged himself very freely in the pleasures of the table, and he had received into the Episcopal palace two young and beautiful women, as the constant companions of his leisure moments".   Thus, Paul of Samosata who Gibbon states is merely an example of the clergy who portrayed themselves as Orthodox, corrupted the teachings and the very spiritual objectives of the Gospel -- i.e., "...Laymen were told by the priests that only the priests really knew what was necessary for salvation and that laymen must accept the "mysteries" on faith and on the priests' authority. This kept the laity baffled by the nonsensical "mysteries", confused, and dependent on the priests for information about the requirements for salvation."

Non-Roman Catholics will respond to the above by countering that they have rejected the dogma of the priests, and they derive their beliefs directly from the New Testament Gospels.   Yet, when the Church of Constantine endeavored to make the teachings of the Gospels in sync with fourth century Roman Pagan thought and culture, to ignore the facts with respect to the manner in which the corrupters of the Word recreated the message of the scriptures in order to make it compatible to church doctrine, is to make oneself disingenuous to the very Son of God to whom we proclaim to be faithful to.  The truth and the facts to the matter is very clearly expressed in the words of Prof. Bart D. Ehrman in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, where he warns us that: "...theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy" -- which orthodoxy was to bring the text of the Bible into conformity with the doctrines and tenets of the Church of the Roman Emperor Constantine. To close our hearts and minds to the facts, and ignore the truth, is from a New Covenant perspective synonymous with relinquishing any claim whatsoever with respect to being a follower of Jesus.

When did the corruption of the scriptures begin?   There is strong evidence which confirms the charge that the Gospels were corrupted as soon as they were given into the hands of many of the Gentile Churches.   Something which no sincere believer today should take lightly is the charge against Christians by Celsus, the second century Epicurean philosopher, who alleged that: "Certain Christians, like men who are overcome by the fumes of wine and care not in the least what they say, alter the original text of the Gospels so that they admit of various and almost indefinite readings. And this, I suppose, they have done out of worldly policy, so that when we press an argument home, they might have the more scope for their pitiful evasions".   Celsus concludes that because of the wholesale rewriting and corruption of the text of the scriptures, that this fraud has made all of Christianity a bogus lie: "It is clear to me that the writings of the Christians are a lie, and that your fables are not well-enough constructed to conceal this monstrous fiction: I have even heard that some of your interpreters, as if they had just come out of a tavern, are onto the inconsistencies and, pen in hand, alter the originals writings, three, four and several more times over in order to be able to deny the contradictions in the face of criticism." (R.J.Hoffmann's Celsus: On The True Doctrine, Oxford University Press, 1987).   

What teachings were removed from the Gospels?   From a spiritual perspective, the most important.    Moreover, when that segment of the Church which portrayed itself as Orthodox entered into a covenant with the Emperor Constantine, they used the most corrupted versions of the New Testament as a starting point, and then further corrupted the text in order to make it support the tenets of Pagan Rome.    But herein lies the problem: If the Gospels were corrupted -- with many of the most important spiritual teachings edited or removed in order to make them support the tenets of Pagan Rome -- then how can the modern Christian even begin to know the Truth?   The answer is found in the words:  “Then many of the Jewish leaders who heard him say these things began believing him to be the Messiah. Jesus said to them, 'You are truly my disciples if you live as I tell you to, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free’” (John 8:30-32 TLB).    And if we augment this statement with the text of the that translation known as The Message, we can begin to understand the solution to the dilemma -- i.e., "If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure.  Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you."   The key message is in the words that the seeker must "live out what [Jesus taught] ...then you will experience for yourselves the truth".   And in this respect, the Law is that you can never possess any greater Truth than you are willing to live and manifest in your daily life.   So while it is true that the Gospel was corrupted in order to make it support the dogma of the Emperor Constantine and Pagan Rome, it is also true that with the restoral of the suppressed teachings and a desire on the part of Christians to "live out what [Jesus taught] , there is the promise of the Gospel that "...you will experience for yourselves the truth".
With the corrupting of the biblical texts and the hunting down of the Spiritual Christians as heretics because they refused to adhere to the dogma of Pagan Rome, the 4th century Church of Constantine put to death the Spirit of the Church (see The Corruption Of The Church).   Yet, it's Spiritual Castration which totally alienated all generations of future Christian believers from comprehending even what was left of a corrupted and spiritually sanitized New Testament (see Bible Corruption), was implemented in the 6th century.   As an example of how the Christian world was literally forced to adhere to the dogma of the emperors, when the doctrine of the pre-existent soul was outlawed by the Emperor Justinian, the Britannica confirms that the emperor then forced his will upon the Church when he "...banished the pope to Egypt , and afterwards to an island, until he accepted the Council, which he ultimately did" (see http://Ebionite.com/reincarnation.htm ).    After relenting to the will of the emperor, and finely accepting the decree of the emperor after seven months of imprisonment, it is reported that the pope met with an untimely death before he could even return to the Vatican.

The Truth That Sets One Free: At Matthew 8:11-12 Jesus declares: "I tell you, many will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”    Who then is being portrayed as those from the  "...east and west [who will] recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom"?  

If it is true that (1) each of us are portrayed in the Gospels as the lost prodigal sons; (2) that because we dwell under the power and domain of what is portrayed as the god of this world, we have no remembrance of our more distant past; (3) that within each of us is an  "...Indweller of Light" that has the capacity to not only restore our distant memory, but also to reunite us with our Heavenly Father in the Edenic Kingdom -- then the traditional belief as to who will be approved by God, and how to seek the Truth, must be totally re-evaluated.

  The Prediction That Satan Would Rule The Church: Open the Gospels and read for yourself the words: "For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect" ( Mat 24:24).   In total disregard of the admonition of the scriptures themselves, the greater majority of Christians believe that the church is beyond the reach of Satan -- that God somehow drew a line that Satan cannot cross over -- and because of this force of alleged Divine protection, Satan has not immersed himself in every aspect of their lives!  Yet, to their own detriment, the leaders of the modern church ignore the warning of the Apostle: “let no man beguile you in any wise: for (it will not be,) except the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, he that opposeth and exalteth himself against all that is called God or that is worshipped; so that he sitteth in the temple of God, setting himself forth as God” (2 Thes 2:3-4 ASV).    What the Apostle is herein very clearly predicting is that there would come a time when the god of the Christian Church will be a false god.   Historically speaking, it has been almost universally recognized that the period in time that the Apostle could have been referring to was in the fourth century when the church made a covenant with the Roman Emperor Constantine.   With regard to this falling away, the Adam Clark Commentary writes of this passage of Paul's Epistle: “[Except there come a falling away first] We have the original word apostasia in our word apostasy; and by this term we understand a dereliction of the essential principles of religious truth, either a total abandonment of Christianity itself, or such a corruption of its doctrines as renders the whole system completely inefficient to salvation. But what this apostasy means is a question which has not yet, and perhaps never will be, answered to general satisfaction” (from the Adam Clarke Commentary).   

No Truth In This World: From an Original Gospel perspective and the Truth of all Truths, no one can teach you the Truth -- there are no schools where you can learn the Truth -- there are no books where you can read the Truth -- there are no direct sources and revelations of Truth in this world -- and yet, it is within your ability as the divine offspring of our Heavenly Father-God, to acquire and know the Truth of all Truths.  As stated: "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God..." (John 6:45 NKJ).  Christians will of course rightly ask: Isn't the Gospels the Truth?   Yes they are -- but only when used as originally intended.   What the Gospels present to mankind as the prodigal sons who have become lost in this, the Far Country, is a text-book that enables those who fully embrace its concepts and teachings, a catalyst to receive the revelation of Truth directly from the Logos/Son of God.  Thus, in the Homilies of Clement where the Apostle Peter is quoted, Peter states: Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth."   And while the Bible is the text-book on coming into the Presence and being Taught by the Logos/Son of God, the true meaning of the scriptures belong only to those who fulfill the Law within themselves, and travail in TheWay in the footsteps of the Master. ou

When Jesus was asked by his disciples why he taught the people in parables -- i.e., "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34) -- Jesus had replied to the question posed by his disciples: "Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest haply they should turn again, and it should be forgiven them" (Mark 4:11-12 ASV).   The question must therefore be asked: Why were the disciples of Jesus taught differently than the multitude of hears?   And unless you can properly answer this essential question, you will remain alienated from the Truth that could only be revealed to the core of Jesus' disciples.  

What this means is that each and every person who is alive today, and has ever lived, is guaranteed that it is within their ability to acquire and know the Truth of all Truths, so long as they understand and are willing to seek the Truth by walking the pathway that enables the seeker to acquire the Truth.   And in view of the fact that the Gospel parables are representative of Universal Truths, so too is the Path to finding the Truth innately Inborn in each and every man, woman and child.   To the degree that a man could be born on an island -- having no contact with any of the world's religions or philosophies -- and they would equally possess the means to acquire the Truth of all Truths as their birthright.      

At the time of Jesus, the religious leaders of that day had done more to obscure the pathway of Truth -- and this is seen reflected in the Gospel teachings.   But this was also true of the later Church which enlisted under the name of Christ -- and remains just as true in our own time.   Moreover, this fact of life in this, the Far County, is also true of all the religions of the world.   It is also true of the wide assortment of modern philosophies -- our educational systems -- as well as all the worldly sources of wisdom.   All of which do more to alienate the people of this world who are personified as the lost prodigal sons, than to actually assist them in their search for Truth and the Meaning and Answers to Life.   Why?   Because few people today understand why Jesus could only speak in parables to the multitude of people -- while reserving the revelation of the mysteries of the Kingdom only to the select few.  

In like manner, I can't convey and teach you the Truth -- I can only present to you the means by which you must seek, to have the Truth Revealed to you directly from the Logos/Son of God.

In the recently discovered Gospel of Thomas it is written: (12) The disciples said to Jesus, "We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader?" Jesus said to them, "Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being."   So to once again restore the teachings of TheWay which is today known as Christianity, the Lord has sent Jacob/James, the Brother of Yeshua/Jesus, back into the world in order to guide the faithful flock into the Truth, the Light, and the Kingdom within (Luke 17:20-21).   It is there that my brother Yeshua/Jesus awaits you.

The above warning with respect to the predicted corruption of Yeshua's teachings is further stated in the first century writings known today as the Clementine Recognitions where it is written: "Our Lord and Prophet, who hath sent us, declared to us that the wicked one, having disputed with Him forty days, and having prevailed nothing against Him, promised that he would send apostles from amongst his subjects, to deceive.  Wherefore, above all, remember to shun apostle or teacher or prophet who does not first accurately compare his preaching with that of James, who was called the brother of my Lord, and to whom was entrusted to administer the church of the Hebrews in Jerusalem, — and that even though he come to you with witnesses: lest the wickedness which disputed forty days with the Lord, and prevailed nothing, should afterwards, like lightning falling from heaven upon the earth, send a preacher to your injury, as now he has sent Simon upon us, preaching, under pretense of the truth, in the name of the Lord, and sowing error. Wherefore He who hath sent us, said, ‘Many shall come to me in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. By their fruits ye shall know them.’" 

Again it is warned by Clement: "Wherefore observe the greatest caution, that you believe no teacher, unless he bring from Jerusalem the testimonial of James the Lord’s brother, or of whosoever may come after him. For no one, unless he has gone up thither, and there has been approved as a fit and faithful teacher for preaching the word of Christ, — unless, I say, he brings a testimonial thence, is by any means to be received. But let neither prophet nor apostle be looked for by you at this time, besides us. For there is one true Prophet, whose words we twelve apostles preach"

As predicted, the ministers of Satan have succeeded in altering the teachings of my brother Yeshua, and continue to lead many into the abyss of darkness.   But have no fear my brothers and sisters, for the teachings of TheWay has been restored so that you might be able to overcome the darkness, and enter the Kingdom of Light within you (Luke 17:20-21).

The Brother Of Yeshua/Jesus: 2000 years ago I lived as Jacob who many call James, and I was known as the Brother of Yeshua and the first leader of the New Covenant movement of TheWay which is today known as Christianity.  I was sent back into the world to restore the teachings of my brother Yeshua to their original spiritual essence, and to guide you in TheWay that is "narrow" so you will be able to open the "strait gate" within you and enter the Kingdom that Yeshua declared must be attained through the second birth.  
 

The Ebionite HomePage: If you call yourself a Christian, Jew, Messianic believer, Evyonim, Nazarene or Muslim, then it is imperative that you learn of the Ebionites who are True Spiritual Israel -- They are the Poor Ones to the ways and thinking of this world -- The Ebionites were the Israelites of the Nazirene Vow They are/were the Genuine Disciples of Yeshua/Jesus who are in the world and not of it!   
 

The Nazirene HomePage: The original spiritual teachings of Yeshua/Jesus as practiced by the people of The Way who where known historically as the Essenes, Ebionites, and Nazirenes. The teachings of The Way are Spiritual -- and provide a means to open the "strait gate" into the Kingdom while still physically alive in the body/vessel.  
 

The Tree Of Life - Divine Marriage: The Primary Objective of Life is to be nourished by the Fruit of the Sacred Tree Of Life.  But few seekers have any understanding of how this nourishment must be brought about and accomplished.   
 

The Outer Darkness And Plato's Cave Of Illusions: Jesus taught that those who fail to put on the Wedding Garment and come to TheCall of the Wedding Feast, are thrown into what the Gospel portrays as the "outer darkness" -- which, when rightly understood, parallels that of the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions -- and because our modern culture possesses absolutely no understanding of the implications, it can be stated that modern man dwells in abject ignorance and intellectual poverty.   Why?   Because we fail to understand the great wisdom in the statement in the Gospel of Thomas: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..."  And in our failure to understand the nature and reality of what we see, we remain drowning in a sea of confusion.

Jesus pays particular attention and importance to Children who are often referred to as the "little ones".  Unless Christians "turn about", and become as a little child, they cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven (Mt 18:3; 19:14).   But this provokes the question: What does it mean to "turn about", and become as a child?   Virtually no modern Christian would be able to answer this question today.   Why?   Not only has the Gospels been corrupted, but the suppression of the teachings on the children can be proven by any Christian, using any version of the scriptures. If it is true that the teachings on the children were corrupted and suppressed, then how many other important teachings also suppressed?   Will the modern Christian be held accountable for the teachings in the Gospels which were altered from their original context -- and even removed -- in order to make the scriptures support the man-made dogma of Pagan Rome?   And if this is true -- that the Gospels were corrupted by the later Church in order to make them support the man-made dogma of the Church -- will the modern Christian be held accountable for the requirement set forth by Jesus in the original teachings?

 
 

Original Gospel Sacraments: The Sacraments that are practiced and observed in the Christian Churches today have very little in common with the Original Sacraments instituted by Jesus.   Without putting on the required Wedding Garment, and being nourished by the Eucharist of the Divine Manna that can only be imparted to the seeker/disciple by and in the direct Spiritual Presence of the Son of God while in the Kingdom, the believer will continue to dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the Far Country and Outer Darkness of Mind and Being -- unable to comprehend the Higher Mysteries of the Kingdom -- and unable to attain the subsequent stage of Birth that enables the seeker/disciple to gain entrance into the Kingdom, and inherit the Promise of Entering into Life.  
 

The Gospel teachings of Jesus which were originally known as the teachings of TheWay (The Way), have within itself all levels from entry-level to a high and mature expression of spirituality.   And while the entry-level is based upon faith and belief, the higher levels of spiritual maturity embody a Wholistic mindset and lifestyle necessary to transform the body-mind into a Living Temple that enables the Spiritual Christian to fully embrace the Pattern of the Christ, by symbolically picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay in Imitation of the man Jesus.   Thus, while the entry-level Christian has few requirements other than faith and belief, the more Advanced Spiritual Christian has many requirements that enables him/her to fulfill the adage to be in the world and not of it.   The Original teachings of Jesus and TheWay was a system of Spiritual Advancement that brought about Wholeness.  

 
 

Know Thyself: Jesus declared in the Gospel of Thomas: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".   It is for this reason that the second-century Church Father Clement of Alexandria said that it is  “…the greatest of all lessons to know one's self.  For if one knows himself, he will know God; and knowing God, he will be made like God… and that man becomes God, since God so wills”.   When God, in the words of St. Nazianzen, no longer is an “object of wonder”, but rather an “object of desire” -- and we, desiring to be purified from the defilements of this world, make ourselves fit vessels for the Lord to indwell, the Spirit, according to St. Nazianzen, reveals to us our true nature, and the revelation of this manifest Sacred Knowledge makes “us like God; so that when we have thus become like Himself, God may, to use a bold expression, hold converse with us as Gods, being united to us, and that perhaps to the same extent as He already knows those who are known to Him”.  St. Nazianzen then writes that “the Divine Nature then is boundless and hard to understand” by those who are yet carnal and think as natural beings of this world.    
 

The Ten Words:  That restores the teachings of Jesus and TheWay to their original spiritual environment.  A massive article covering every aspect of the religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.    
 

An Inconvenient Truth: One of the most important articles that have been written and exist in our present time -- in spite of those who attempt to censor and inhibit the modern seeker from having access to the Truth and TheWay.   Written by an Original Author of the Gospels, this article reveals what modern authorities will at any cost, censor and suppress.   Why?   Because as counterfeit shepherds, they are carnal and totally earth-bound in their thinking.   Being carnal and spiritually disenfranchised, they don't at all understand -- or possess the knowledge of -- the Great Spiritual Truths revealed in this article.   
 

Reincarnation, The Key To Christianity: The only eyewitness account written by an Elder in the original Ebionite Community portraying the Death of Christianity -- The Religion of Jesus and the Original Teachings of TheWay.   Because the Emperor of Rome hunted down and murdered the Original Spiritual Christians and all those who opposed the corruption of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay, the Christian world itself has been cast into a Spiritual Diaspora from which it has yet to emerge.  
 

The Church Of The AntiChrist: The Apostle Paul predicted that the Church which portrays itself as Christian, will install the Anti-Christ as the leader of the Church, and the Christian world will worship Satan in place of God.   While the Christian world dwells under the deceptive belief that they freed themselves from the paganism of Rome in the Reformation, the leaders of the Reformation did not at all understand the reality of a purely Spiritual Religion where the objective was to be be in the world and not of it -- using the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge to gain entrance into the Kingdom while still in the body-vessel -- in many respects the reactionary dogma contrived by Martin Luther and the other leaders of the Reformation had the effect of further imprisoning the Church in the abyss of abject carnal ignorance.   
 

The Bible itself openly rejects and condemns the tenets of belief promoted by the Church.   What is demonstrated is the fact that the vast majority of Christians neither understand the Bible -- and those who do read it, do so through the filter of their dogma and beliefs.   re are 10 words that were altered from their original context in the New Testament that have the power to re-establish the essence of the teachings of Yeshua which was known as TheWay.   These 10 words demonstrate conclusively that the text of the New Testament has been altered and corrupted in order to make it support the doctrines of the Pagan Roman/Greek world.   These 10 words further demonstrate that the essence of the teachings of Yeshua has little in common with the Christian religion today.   In fact, these 10 wordsare to Christianity what the 10 Commandments were to Judaism -- i.e., the foundation from which every other aspect of the religion springs forth! These 10 words prove the Ebionites correct, and modern Christianity which is founded upon 4th century Roman doctrines to be in error.  These 10 words prove that without a return to the essence of Yeshua's original teachings, modern Christians are neither saved, nor do they have the salvation they erroneously believe they do.   
 

The Consecrated Life is the Path that leads to Wholeness -- and this Wholeness can only be brought about when the teachings of Yeshua/Jesus and TheWay becomes a mindset and lifestyle that develops the person and brings them to Completion.   In the parable of the prodigal son, the experiences in what is portrayed as the Far Country develops the son -- enables him to prevail and to rule over himself -- and it is this state of Completion within himself that permits him to return to the Edenic Kingdom of the Father.   Each and every person is presently evolving to this state of Completion and Wholeness in the Omega of Perfection, that will permit them to return to their True Source of Being.  
 

The Key Of Knowledge: When Jesus condemned the leaders of the Jews as blind guides, it was because they threw away the Key Of Knowledge.   In the fourth century of our Common Era, the Church of Rome in like manner threw away the Key Of Knowledge -- causing the Christian world to become lost and wandering in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of Mind and Being.    
 

The Tree Of Life: After eating the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil), the statement was made in the allegorical account of Genesis: "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever" (Gen 3:22-23).  Thus, the objective of life is to become nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life -- i.e., "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).   And respecting the Tree of Life it is written: "Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" (Rev 22:1-2).   With the final statement pertaining to the eating of the fruit of the Tree of Life in order to gain entrance to what is often portrayed as Spiritual Jerusalem in the words: "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" (Rev 22:14).  The problem is seen in the fact that after suppressing the higher spiritual knowledge of Jesus and TheWay, modern seekers have no idea what the Tree of Life is, or how to be nourished by its fruit.    
 

The Light Of Yeshua -- The Messianic Nazirene Disciple of TheWay: While many teach that believers are saved by faith, the journey of the disciple of Yeshua is one of absolute dedication to The Way. The disciple who becomes a brother to Yeshua must live as he lived, and become a Nazirene who is consecrated and wholly set apart as they walk the Narrow Way, enter into the Kingdom through the Strait Gate, and learn directly from the L-rd -- the One Rabbi and Teacher of the Mysteries of G-d.  
 

Divine Strategery: How God Fools Mankind - Keeping Him Ignorant Of The Truth: Strategery has become synonymous with when what is portrayed as simple, simpleminded, or even self-evident, is able to dupe and thwart an opposing force that perceives itself to be either superior, or to suppose they know the answers.   Divine Strategery is how God fools all the religious leaders of this world who think they doctrinally know God -- all the would-be teachers and philosophers of this world who think they Know Truth -- all the Atheists and those who criticize and denounce the existence of God by virtue of their limited perception and understanding -- and all the people in this world who think they understand the purpose of life and the world in which we presently dwell.  As prodigal sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, if the people in this life knew the answers, then the learning experience of God's SchoolHouse of this world would not effectively evolve us to become true Brothers and Sisters of our Elder Brother Yeshua/Jesus.  Therefore, in order to insure that each of us is immersed in the necessary learning experience that this life offers, all people are equally fooled into thinking they know, in order for them to be manipulated into embracing a higher agenda that is beyond their ability to even imagine.   Thus, Divine Strategery!!!

 
 
 

Reincarnation - The Key To Christianity And The The Pre-Existent Soul of Mankind: Jesus taught the reality of the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes. The Church adheres to the doctrine and theology of a Circus Prostitute and a Roman Emperor who maintained absolute control over what Christians were permitted to believe! Christians continue to cling to the theology of this Circus Prostitute today - rejecting the teachings of Jesus, while adhering to the doctrines of Pagan Rome. The mass confusion of an uncountable number of sects today, is the direct result of the void which was brought about when this foundational concept was removed from both the Bible, as well as Christian doctrine. The doctrinal quagmire which was brought about with the removal of this foundational teaching, obstructs Christians growth and maturity beyond the entry-level simple faith. Because they adhere to the corrupted doctrines of men, modern Christians can't inherit the Biblical Promise of entering the Kingdom and Life.

 
 

It was said of the Church Father Origen by St. Gregory of Nyssa that he was “the prince of Christian learning in the Third Century” -- and the Encyclopedia Britannica calls him “…the most prominent of all the church fathers”.  But how did he become the man that St. Jerome considered to be “the greatest teacher of the Church after the Apostles”?   According to the soul who lived as Origen, he had previously lived as the disciple and scribe of Jacob who people call James, who was the Brother of Jesus.   And from that life with Jacob, he learned to write scriptures in Hebrew Characters, and he worked on the original source scriptures which has since come to be called the New Testament scriptures of the Bible.   On his web site, Emmanuel Pohorecki reveals not only the accounts of the many lifetimes that he has lived, but also his own journey into the presence of his soul-self -- i.e., his true self who is the Being of Light.   And once again Emmanuel has demonstrated that you don't need to physically die to communicate with, and enter into the presence of your soul-self who is the Being of Light in the Near Death Experience.   And in his soon to be completed article on the Journey of the Soul and Visions from his Higher Self, he will write about what his soul-self has taught him while in the Realm of Souls.   Emmanuel provides other important insights in man's higher reality with his account of his life with Fr. Francis, as a Native American, and as one of the Constitutional Founding Fathers of the United States.  
 

The Long Island Mystic and Nazirene Disciple of TheWay: The Organizational HomePage of The Nazirene -- the Long Island Mystic, Evangelical Minister, and Prophet of TheWay -- who God bestowed upon him the gift of the recall of his previous life as a Disciple and Brother of Messiah/Christ -- and thus has re-entered this world at the present time in order to restore the Spiritual Essence and Teachings of his Master, Yeshua/Jesus. The Kingdom is within! And we must sojourn the narrow path of TheWay, enter the "strait gate" to the Inner Spiritual Temple, while still alive in the physical body.  Thus, modern Christians have misunderstood the words of Yeshua -- he never said that we must physically die to enter the Edenic Kingdom of Origination -- but rather, we must die to the culture, mindset and ways of this world in order to enter the Kingdom!   
 

Being Of Light: Who are we?  What are we? From where have we come?  What is our destiny?  To the demise of those who read these words, only a handful of people today can answer these all-important crucial questions correctly! The rest dwell under the cloud of unknowing -- and if you think you are the person whose reflection you see in the mirror, then you are a stranger to your true self and have made yourself part of the illusion of this world. With great wisdom Yeshua/Jesus is quoted in The Books of the Savior, also known as Pistis Sophia (Faith-Wisdom): "Do not cease seeking day or night, and do not let yourselves relax until you have found all the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Light, which will purify you and make you into Pure Light and lead you into the Kingdom of Light."  
 

Gospel of the Nazirenes -- Gospel Of Light: What did the Gospels look like before being edited and re-written by the Church of Rome? What were the original beliefs of the first followers of Yeshua? You will be astonished when you read a surviving text of The Gospel of the Nazirenes which was hidden away from the corrupters of the Roman Church. Are you ready for a truly enlightening experience?  
 

The Orthodox Corruption of the Scriptures: Was the Bible rewritten? Prof. Nestle writes: "Learned men, so called Correctores were, following the church meeting at Nicea 325 AD, selected by the church authorities to scrutinize the sacred texts and rewrite them in order to correct their meaning in accordance with the views which the church had just sanctioned." To ignore the facts is to alienate oneself from the Living Word of God  
 

The Suppressed Teachings On Children: "And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them, and said, Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven" (Mat 18: 2-3).  Because the important teachings on children were removed from the Gospels, it remains virtually impossible for the modern believer to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom  
 

What Happened To Zackarias? Because the mainstream of Christians can't even begin to answer the question as to what happened to Zackarias?  It remains impossible for them to understand the true reality of the scriptures -- or why the religion of the pre-Nicene Church Fathers was very different than the dogma preached from the pulpits today.   And while the missing account of Zackarias can be easily proven today, the fact that the modern Christians ignores the facts and the truth has had the effect of disenfranchising them from the Kingdom they have been commanded to seek out.  
 

Things Christians Never Tell Jews About The New Testament: Many Jews have been misinformed when they have been warned by Christians that if they don't believe and come to Jesus, they will not inherit salvation and eternal life. Part of this is an error of ignorance -- i.e., because their Christian forefathers were adulterous, and defiled their own covenant with the Lord in the manner of the Jews when they worshiped other gods, they have yet to recover from their spiritual temple being plundered and ravished by the unclean and dark forces of this world. They therefore have lost their own way, and no longer can come into the Presence of the Lord. The Facts: Both Christians and the Jews they have persecuted, condemned, and even murdered over the past two thousand years will be shocked by what they will read herein! What they will learn is a fact that has long confused many sincere students of the New Testament scriptures -- scriptures which are very Jewish in origin -- and because of their very mystical Jewish essence, has long confounded the non-Jews who have championed the Gospel message. To their own undoing, most Christians ignore their own theologians and biblical scholars who have attempted to warn them that the scriptures are paradoxical -- i.e., that in all theological positions there exists two lines of seemingly opposite and conflicting truths presented to the reader -- and those who accept one truth while ignoring the other, will themselves fall into heresy by falling into grave sectarian error with respect to the true meaning of the Gospel message. Thus, those who maintain that there is no salvation apart from belief in the historical Jesus in the manner of modern Christian doctrine, have themselves fallen into the trap of heresy that the very first followers of Jesus warned believers not to fall into! And while it is true that these sectarian vicars of the Church can prove their position by using the scriptures, it is further true that their own scriptures also contain another line of truth that presents an entirely different picture than what the Church has portrayed to the world -- a picture where the opposite is also true.  
 

The Sower And The Seed: Unless you become the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower And The Seed, it will remain impossible for you to comprehend the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel and the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom of God.  
 

The Secret Doctrine Of Christianity: In the approximate year of 178 of our Common Era, Celsus, the Epicurean Philosopher and opponent of Christianity published a rather embarrassing work in opposition to Christianity known as The True Word or Discourse. It is said that this work was widely published and used by the Pagan world as an attack on the Church. In examination of this document, the modern Christian must initially ask: Who today would accuse the Christian Church of being a “secret system”? No one -- because the Church today has lost its spiritual essence -- and is a mere shadow of its former self over the first three centuries of its existence. Therefore, it is important for us to recognize that such an allegation would be unheard of in our present time.  
 

The Enigma Of The Shepherd Of Hermas: Even though it is said of the Shepherd of Hermas that it was "...the most popular books, if not the most popular book, in the Christian Church during the second, third, and fourth centuries...", it remains unknown to the modern Church. Why? Why was the book that is representative of the core Gospel of the earliest Church, no longer is use today? Because while Hermas reflected the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay, it would be deemed heresy by the modern Church. And when rightly understood, the fact of the matter is that it is impossible for the modern believer, critic, biblical expert or scholar to in any manner understand the message that Hermas bears. Which means that if the Shepherd of Hermas was indeed the most popular scripture in the Gentile Church over the first three centuries, then it can rightly be stated that the modern Church has virtually nothing in common with the pre-Nicene Gentile Church.  
 

Divine Manna:  "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:8-17).  "My People Are Destroyed For Lack Of Knowledge Because You Have Rejected Knowledge, I Reject You..." (Hosea 4:6).   "Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie" (Rev 22:14).  "Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit" (1 Thes 4:8 NIV)  
 

Gospel Of Thomas:  These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.  And he said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death."  Jesus said, "Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All."  
 

The Gate Of Eden: Why were the Nazirene/Ebionites vegetarian?  Why did they live in accordance with the precepts of the Torah/Law?  Why did they live separate and apart from both Jews and Christians?  The answer is very simple: The Gate of Eden is within us, and if we fail to enter therein while we are still physically alive in the body, we will have failed in our opportunity to enter into Life.  And while it can be countered that we are saved by our belief in Messiah/Christ, faith, or the blood of the lamb, the truth is that if we were truly faithful disciples of TheWay, that we would experience the opening of the inner door and the Kingdom coming within us.  The GateOfEden article explores all aspects of the need to pick up one's own cross and follow the narrow path that leads to the inner gate to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.  
 

What was the Mysteries of the Gospel that Jesus revealed only to the inner core of disciples?   While teaching the multitude of the people only in parables?    "And the disciples came and said to Him, Why do You speak to them in parables? He answered and said to them, Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given" (Matt 13:10-11 NKJ).   As someone who was there, at the time, what is presented in this article is not only far beyond the understanding of any book that you could read, or teacher you could seek out.   what is presented in this article will force you to re-evaluate everything that you thought you knew about both yourself, and the very purpose of life as you think you understand it.   And even more revealing than the three major lies of Judaism, Christianity and Islam that inhibits the people from understanding the foundational essence of all three religions, is an examination of both the lies and profound truths of the emerging scientific world which is for the most part ignored by our cultural icons, because the findings of modern quantum physics confirms the visionary truths of the Mystics which the religious and intellectual worlds have long censored from the common understanding.   
 

Epistle Of Light - Epistle Of James To Pope John Paul II: 2000 years ago I lived as Jacob the brother of Jesus known as James. I was sent back to bring about the restoration of the Church, and the within letter to Pope John Paul is important for you to read and forward. The pope has the power to bring peace on earth if he releases certain early Christian documents that are in his possession. Jesus is calling out to you to help make the truth known! Will you hear the call?  
 

Light Of Yeshua: The Essence of Messianic Judaism and being Spiritually Torah Observant.  Many Messianic Jews attempt to embrace traditional Christian doctrine with a Jewish facade in an attempt to convert other Jews to a quasi-form of Jewish-Christianity with a Pagan foundation. In view of the fact that the original followers of Yeshua are historically described as “…rejected from one religion as apostates, and from the other as heretics” (Gibbon: Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, v.1, p.416), this conversion to Jewish-Christianity would be a grave error.  
 

The Cross And The Seat Belt: The only mean by which mankind can move beyond his present limitations and struggles with the unknown, is to gain access to the Source of what he observes and interacts with in the world which is in what the mystic and scientist affirm as being the (Etheric) Field that surrounds all matter that we observe with our physical senses.   But to accomplish this, man must develop ways to effectively use his suppressed Intuitive spheres of mind.   Which means that to even begin to tap into the unseen Source, we must move beyond our traditional behaviors, mindset and perception of reality, and begin to embrace untraditional ways that permit the development and use of our suppressed Intuitive facilities of mind.   If what man presently portrays as accidents, can indeed be perceived prior to the event taking place -- and thus, be avoided -- then we will have eliminated the massive suffering and even death that is the result of these episodes of human existence.   And therefore, if the witness of both the Mystic and the emerging scientific evidence is true -- and reality must he sought in the unseen (Etheric) Field as the Source of all events that transpire -- then it becomes imperative for man to begin to develop and evolve those Intuitive spheres of mind that has been abandoned and left atrophied by the linear-only elements of our modern culture.  
 

How Did Jesus Become The Son Of God? It is a widely accepted doctrine among Christians today that the disciples and Ebionite Nazirene followers did not comprehend the true nature of Jesus, because they did not proclaim that he was God -- as did the later Gentile converts.   Yet, just the opposite is true -- i.e., the vast majority of Romans and Greeks were too pagan and heathen in their thinking and mindset, to understand the higher spiritual concepts that Jesus and his disciples revealed to mankind.   Even today the problem remains with respect to our inability to understand why Jesus was different than we are. Because Christians cling to the doctrines of Rome, they are unable to answer many important foundational questions that would permit their thinking to evolve beyond what Paul portrayed as the entry-level doctrines of the simple faith that are elementary in their understanding. And while Paul warns that the "natural" (organic) mind of man is incapable of understanding the higher reality of the soul and the Inner Kingdom  -- warning that committed and baptized believers will reject the Mysteries of God as utter "foolishness" -- yet, the modern Church to their own destruction continues to ignore this all-important warning. What enabled Jesus to perform miracles? What enabled him to be able to communicate with the Father? Surely, we conclude, he could not have been a normal man. Therefore, we arrive at the only possible answer from our very limited perspective and conclude that the Jewish disciples and earliest followers of Jesus must have been wrong, and he had to have been God to know all that he knew, and be able to do all that he did. Thus, the flaw in the thinking of the Church is in their inability to envision and comprehend the manner in which mankind grows and evolves to a state of spiritual maturity -- how man, the prodigal son, who was created in the image and likeness of God, his Heavenly Father, begins to take on all the attributes of his Creator and Parent. In not understanding the process by which each of us embraces our eventual destiny, we worship instead of imitating the pattern that Yeshua/Jesus provided for all the prodigal sons and daughters of the Most High to follow.  
 

Lilith - The Demonic Reality Of Feminism: In the Divine Pattern of Creation man and woman are not only equal, but the mental/spiritual level of one polarity directly affects and limits the other.  The spiritual ignorance of many religious groups today is directly in proportion to the failure of men and women to interact and move into a state of spiritual harmony and balance.  
 

What is the difference between Passover and Easter?    What is the spiritual meaning of Passover?   Does it matter which holiday is celebrated?
