Dove and Pigeon sellers chased out of the temple, what's it all about?
Where is the temple, is it a physical building or is it somewhere else? Who are the money changers?
Mark 11:15 says that jesus drove out doves, so what is it, doves or pigeons, perhaps we need to understand the symbolism.
Then we see in matthew 21:12 that jesus overturned the money tables and and the chairs of those that sold PIGEONS.
I Kings 6:37-38"And Jesus entered the temple of God (BRAIN) and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, "It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer'; but you make it a den of robbers." (Mat.21:112-13). It's your BRAIN
Doves are also very noisy and annoying when they are in a flock that's why the bible writers use both pigeons and doves as a symbol of a continuous talking annoying ego driven person.
Doves and pigeons are interchangeable in the biblical mythology
"Doves are a symbol of hybris qualities seemingly gentle and beneficent, but really hard and grasping".
The dove sellers are those that who profess to be kind and amiable, birdhouse in reality, selfish and indifferent, and who therefore prostitute the ideals which they profess to be living up to.
These are the religious types, they are so consumed with their self image and self rightesness, yet they are just wolves in sheeps clothing, the 666 hephren mind.
The workplace back stabber, the smiling monkey brain, the backbiter, these are the dove sellers.
In Leviticus God says bring me two turtle doves or two pigeons for sacrifice.
When Jesus was 40 days old.
Both symbols mean the same thing.
Why did he overturn seats of those that bought and sold pigeons/doves?
The temple is the brain, the ark is the brain.
pigeons and doves crap all over the place, and make cooing noises, that are very annoying.
The pigeons/doves that were run out of the temple by jesus, are those people that partake in senseless chatter, talking about others, the crap just flows. these are the pigeon/dove brained. Endless talking and scheming, these people create all the crap that exists in the world.
And they will ran out of the temple upon the return of jesus to the temple. As well as the money changers, those greedy cooperate entities and government. Those peoples minds that are against the natural order of the cosmos, these are the money changers. The money changers also represent toggling from the lower mind back again to the higher mind, continually divided, money in the bible is a symbol of the lower mind.
Pigeon brained equals two ball cain (tubalcain), knuckle heads, shovel heads, iron heads etc.. Sounds like Harley riders fit right in there. Workers of metal, the iron chariot federation.
Who are the money changers?
Why does jesus get mad at money changers, to understand this parable, we must look at the symbols.
Money is the root of all evil, but not LITERAL money.
'It's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter heaven," not LITERAL riches, but it is talking about one who operates from the total EGO center, look at me, ain't I the cat's meow?
One is rich when one is consumed with their physical appearance, and their seeming knowledge, one is narcissistic.
So lets look at the spiritual definition of money.
A symbol of the lower equivalent for a higher acquisition. Such as desires for objects of sense and affection, given up, or exchanged for higher virtues and spiritual powers. In other words an exchange of ideas and mental constructs of the lower mind to the higher mind.
But they that desire to be rich fall into a temptation and a snare and many foolish and hurtful lusts, such as drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money (sense desires), is a root of all kinds of evil; which some reaching after have been led astray from the faith, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows" Tim 6:9
(money is the root of all evil), really means the sense desires, operating from the animal senses, not REAL money, it's all symbolism.
See how foolish religion and religious people are, a preacher will profess all of the evils of money out of one side of his mouth, yet ask you to send him your LOVE gifts (money), to his ministry.
Hypocrites, all of them.
Those who seek to fill their minds with desires and thoughts of the objects of sense (riches), will be the prey of carking cares, which destroy the higher mental qualities. For the love of the lower things (money), is productive of all kinds of evils and sufferings.
"We are god's money, we have wandered away as coin from the treasury. The impression that was stamped upon us has been rubbed out by our wandering minds, seeking things of the lower mind."
"He has come to refashion, for he it was that fashioned us at first, and he is himself asking for his MONEY, as Caesar for his."
Therefore he says, render unto Caesar’s (the physical), the things that are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God's.
To Caesar his money, to god yourselves.
Gospel of John.
"And Moses gave the money of them that were redeemed unto Aaron and to his sons, according to the WORD of the lord, as the lord commanded Moses"
So the ethical nature rendered up the love of the lower things regarded as right out of obedience to esteemed authority, so that love might be transmuted and the spiritual mind and it's concepts might use it in the soul's development, according to the divine law of moral and spiritual progress.
So you see, money is a symbol of those things that arise out of the sense desires (the flesh) as opposed to things spiritual.
If things in this life, cars motorcycles, guitars etc.. anything that totally occupies your mind is considered money in the spiritual sense. These things in and of themselves are not evil, desires are not evil, but when they become your waking and sleeping consciousness, these things are evil.
Anything that keeps you from entering into meditation, is money in the biblical sense.
Prosperity preachers, which today is all of them, preach that money is desirable, and richness is desirable, and they quote numerous bible verses to bolster their argument, but realize that these things are spiritual, and never literal.
They tell you that if you send them a love gift, that you are sewing seeds in god's kingdom, and that God will reward you ten and 1000 fold if you give them money.
And you actually bought into it, you actually called the hotline and gave them money, believing that some God in Heaven saw you do this, and that you will be rewarded with more abundance (money).
You have failed to realize that there is no God in heaven, on the earth, beneath the earth, north, south, east or west, that cares about money or what you or anyone else does with it.
"God is not subject to the carnal nature, neither can he be"
Do you fully understand this verse? Do you know what it means?
Your carnal nature is the physical, the physical world, with all of it's rules, traditions, money, in short all of the stuff of this physical world. God is not SUBJECT to it.
God is only concerned with you from the NECK up, period.
"Give to Caesar (the physical) what is Caesar's, and give to god (spiritual), what is god's"
That's it, and that should settle it!!!!
Riches and money in the biblical sense have a dual meaning though.
(Mark 10:25 KJV) It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
This is making reference to living life at the purely physical level, the desire level, feeding the desires of the ego mind.
But yet in other verses, it admonishes you to become rich, but this richness is referring to the richness of the spirit.
In other verses riches means the attachment to the lower mind. These riches will be your downfall.
I know this issue seems to be a hot topic for debate among Christians, so I am going to try to just present what I have found in the Word. Let me also say that the verses below are not be talking about financial prosperity, riches, literal poor etc..
Lets look at some of the verses that prosperity preachers use to bilk millions of dollars from the unsuspecting public.
Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV) But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he swore unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
The wealth here, is the wealth of godly things, the wealth of things spiritual.
"Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops;" Proverbs 3:9
You wealth and crops are the spiritual things that grow out of the higher mind.
"Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth." Proverbs 10:4
Hand is a symbol of the directive principle of activity either outgoing (right), or incoming (left). The positive and negative aspects of Divine action in the soul and the mind.
If the soul and mind are RIGHT, the this is wealth.
"Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death." Proverbs 11:4
Death is the death of the lower ego mind, there is no wealth in her, her wrath is coming.
"Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow." Proverbs 13:11
Money is the spirit, he who gathers (dwells) on things spiritual, little by little, the spirit grows fuller.
Dishonest money, means dwelling on the sense desires of the flesh.
"Humility and the fear of the LORD bring wealth and honor and life." Proverbs 22:4
Why? Because those that fear the lord will enter into meditation, and try and overcome the lower mind.
"The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender." Proverbs 22:7
The rich are the rich in spiritual things, god's word.
This mind rules over the poor, the lower mind, the lower mind is the borrower, and it is a servant of the higher spiritual authority.
"No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money." Matthew 6:24
This means that you can't serve the lower ego, the sense desires of the flesh, the things of this world, and serve god, the higher spiritual things at the same time.
So thus far we have ample evidence that God is light, you are light, and Jesus is Light, and we see from the bible itself that this light inhabits temples made WITHOUT tool, made in SEVEN years.
In other words the TEMPLE is the HUMAN brain, and that this brain is the biblical temple spoken of in scripture.
God is not a man, but i declare to you that god is light.
So we have God, you, Jesus as light, now the biggest question of all, are YOU god?
Where is the temple?
Mark14:58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands. This is what thinks of temples made WITH HANDS, it says he will destroy them.
Acts 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet.
For Solomon's Temple (a permanent, fixed location; a physical representation and foreshadow of the true spiritual temple to follow) thirty thousand men cut and squared timbers out of the mountains, cut huge stones out of quarries, and transported them to the temple mount over the space of over seven years.
The assembly was made without sound of tool. (1Ki 5:13-18) SEVEN years it took to build the TEMPLE and all without tools, how can you construct buildings WITHOUT tools? Do you see now ?
Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands Mar 13:1-2 And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings [are here]. And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings?
there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. So much for jesus's thoughts on temples made with hands.
If temples made with hands by religious authorities are so holy, then why did Jesus say that the Jerusalem Temple will come to naught.
This prophesy came to pass in 70 A.D. when the temple was utterly destroyed by the Romans, leaving no stone unturned. Anything that exalts itself above God and rejects Jesus Christ, will ultimately face destruction, not eternal hell fire, but eternal death.
I cr 3:15 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? God does not dwell in man-made temples.
there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building. No they weren't wearing ear plugs either 1 kngs 6:14 So Solomon built the house, and finished it.
It was built and finished without tools by SOLOMON. 1kngs 6:38 The first of the three buildings was erected by Solomon. It was beautiful, requiring SEVEN years in the construction. "seven years means raising the energy through the SEVEN nerve centers called Chakras"
1 kings 6:8 The door for the middle chamber was in the right side of the house: and they went up with winding stairs into the middle chamber, and out of the middle into the third. "this is the third ventricle of the brain"
Acts 7:44-50 a tabernacle for the God of Jacob. But Solomon built Him a House. Howbeit the most High dwells not in temples made with hands; as said the prophet.
I will DESTROY THIS TEMPLE that is MADE WITH HANDS, and WITHIN THREE DAYS I WILL BUILD ANOTHER MADE WITHOUT HANDS.
When Jesus Christ arose from the dead the cornerstone of the third temple was laid. So Again the scriptures tell us that no tools were heard in its construction.
The kingdom of god is inside you and all around you, not in mansions made of wood and stone Cleave a (piece of) wood: I am there. Raise up the stone, and ye shall find me there.
GOD dwells not, NOT IN CHURCHES made of brick and mortar, "The kingdom of God is within you"On your brain
At one time or another most of us have seen Michelangelo's "Creation of Man" panel from the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. When Michelangelo painted the chapel ceiling in 1512 he actually never named the various panels, instead, we of the so called modern age, have given them names. Dr. Frank Lynn Meshberger of St. John's Medical Center in Anderson, Indiana believes that the famous "creation" panel contains an image that has been misunderstood for 487 years--a brain that symbolizes God on the brain of man.
THE QUESTION IS, A PATTERN OF WHAT ?
Exodus 26:33 says the tabernacle must be built with an outer room called the holy place, an inner room called the holy of holies, and the holy place and the holy of holies must be separated from each other by a curtain or veil.
The human brain has an outer covering called Dura Mater (hard mother), an inner most sensitive area called Pia Mater, (tender mother). Dura Mater and Pia Mater are separated from each other by Arachnoid, the web, or veil, or curtain.
There we have an anatomically correct description of the human brain written over 4000 years ago, and described as the temple, not made with hands, where God dwells. Who wrote it ?
In your computer the place of memory is called
In your brain the place of memory is called hippocampus. In the hippocampus is an organ called Ammons Horn. Ammon is the Egyptian deity whose symbol is the Ram Head.
So we obviously do not need more religion to solve our problems. We need more RAM.
THE BRAIN AND THE TABERNACLE
WE HAVE DEVELOPED EVIDENCE THAT THE TABERNACLE OF THE BIBLE AND THE HUMAN BRAIN ARE THE SAME
Let us enter the tabernacle Let us enter the brain The first thing we see as we enter the tabernacle is CHERUBIM. The first thing we see as we enter the brain is
And the scripture says in 1 Kings 6:27 And he set the cherubims within the inner house: and they stretched forth the wings of the cherubims, so that the wing of the one touched the one wall, and the wing of the other cherub touched the other wall; and their wings touched one another in the midst of the house.
If you look at a picture Below of the human brain you will see the wings touching both sides and meeting in the middle.
here's a cross section of the brain showing the Cherubims of ancient scriptures. see the angels wings!
They cover the mercy seat or center fornix area of the brain!
Ex 25:22 "And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat.
THE ANGELIC CHERUBIM ARE YOUR CEREBRUM.
SEE THEIR WINGS ?
From Stedman's medical dictionary we see the cerebrum of the human brain. The 3rd ventricle and what appear as angels wings, or Cherubim. They are there. Do you see them ?
So now let us take this entire episode out of the normal sky and place it within the dark matter of the mind.
SEE THE WORD CEREBRUM, THAT ROOT CERE MEANS "TO COVER".
WHAT WAS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CHERUBIM OF THE TEMPLE ?
EXODUS 25:20 "And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high,
covering the mercy seat with their wings"
THE CHERUBIM COVERED THE MERCY SEAT
THE CEREBRUM COVERS THE BRAIN. THEY ARE THE SAME.
AND THEY BOTH ARE IN THE TEMPLE NOT MADE WITH HANDS.
WHERE THERE IS AN OUTER, AND AN INNER, AND A VEIL IN BETWEEN.
The Ark of the Covenant is the best known item in the Tabernacle, renowned for its mysterious powers against the enemies of Israel (I Samuel chapters 5 & 6).
The Ark of the Covenant resided in the Holy of Holies, the innermost room of the Tabernacle. Access was restricted to one person only, the high priest.
He had to come into the Holy of Holies with the blood of a goat, on behalf of his own and the people of Israel's sins.
The Ark was God's throne in His dwelling place in the Tabernacle. Most people associate the Ark of the Covenant with judgement and wrath, rightly so.
The day is soon coming when God will judge the secrets of people's hearts (Romans 2:16) and "the wrath of God is revealed from heaven upon all ungodliness and unrighteousness of people who suppress the truth" (Romans 1:18). "He who formed the eye, do you think He cannot see? or He who planted the ear, do you think He does not hear?" (Psalm 94:9) If you are still not sure, please read about the great white throne of God's judgement in Revelation 20:11-15.
But, there was a cover on the Ark, known as the Mercy Seat, or Propitiation Cover. It was here that the blood of a goat was sprinkled by the high priest on the Day of Atonement, to appease God's righteous anger (propitiate) for the sins of the people of Israel.
Attached to the Ark's covering lid were two Cherubim. God's presence did not dwell inside the box, but remained over the Ark, in between the two Cherubim.
Here God dwelt "in unapproachable light" (I Timothy 6:16 Psalm 104:2).
THE ARK OF THE COVENANT EXISTS!
What was the Ark of the Covenant? Was it a highly charged capacitor, as the Bible seems to suggest, and, if so, what was the intended function of this powerful electrical device?
Back in 1996, I highlighted the fact that the Ark of the Covenant was used by the Israelites in the manner of a sophisticated communication system to converse with their God, Yahweh.
This, at least, is what seems to be suggested in the Old Testament when Yahweh instructed Moses as follows:
"And thou shalt put the atonement cover on top of the Ark; and in the Ark thou shalt put the Testimony that I shall give thee.
And there, above the cover, between the two cherubim which are upon the Ark of the Testimony, I will meet with thee, and I will give thee all my commands for the children of Israel."
Yep he's right , because it's your electro brain charged with (Magic smoke), electrons from the solar wind of the belly.
It's the BRAIN
The most high dwells not in temples made with hands.
1 Corinthians 3:16 You are the temple of God. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
So if God does not dwell in a temple made with hands, he could not be dwelling in the tabernacle or temple made with hands in the desert.
This is thus not talking about a building but the human brain as the scripture makes perfectly clear.
We see that the 12 cranial nerves, the 12 tribes connected to the brain, to the temple of God, connect at the Dura Mater of the brain.
This is again very interesting because it falls into place perfectly with the scripture that describes the construction of the temple.
I don't want to run away from this too quickly because it forms the basis of the deep truth that religion has kept from us by interpreting this material literally. They see 12 tribes positioned in the desert around a tabernacle or box tent of some kind.
We are seeing the truth. The 12 cranial nerves positioned around the center of the human brain, occupied by God.
I mean everything that we exist in, our lives, the activities forming our cultures, the terrorism, the wars, the fear and hate is built around the failure to understand that Gods dwelling place within the human brain is to be touched by earth people which are us.
Look closely at the description of the temple in the book of revelations, and you will see the twelve, referencing the 12 cranial nerves, and the 12 signs of the Zodiac representing the other 12, and that makes 144.
Your measure 12:9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. Light from above moving through The seven are the Chakras
12:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, The great city is the brain, Jerusalem is the new brain, after it has been transformed by Gods Light.
12:11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
A description of the Light
12:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: here's the 12 cranial nerves and the light from the zodiac
12:13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
again here's the 12 gates to the brain, the 12 cranial nerves
12:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb (pineal gland) again more references to the 12 and 12
12:15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
12:16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. there's another reference to the 12
12:17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. here's your complete measure, the 12 nerves combined with the 12 signs of Mazzoroth or the Zodiac, and you are 144.
In the Bible God asks Job if he can bring forth Mazzoroth in it's due season, Mazzoroth means Zodiac, you can see for yourself in your own bible.
God also asks job if he can bind the sweet influences of the Pliades, and bind the influences of Orion. Now these are star systems, and the influences is light or electromagnetism.
There you have it, God is saying can you and I receive the light from above, via meditation from the stars and bring it forth in it's due season, in other words when you're ready.
Rev 4:4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 12+12=24, more symbols of the energy coming into the brain.
4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. .
The fire is always the purifying spark of God, it's the furnace or fornix area of the brain, where the energy culminates. Heated SEVEN times In the book of Daniel.
and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne... The Word of God is likened unto a lamp (Ps. 119:105), with light for all 7 ages of man. In the first 3 ages it was oral. In the 4th, 5th, and 6th ages it has been written. In the 7th age to come, it will be both written and oral, for Christ the Word will be with us.
Here again we symbolism, the and the 24 elders are the 12 cranial nerves 12 angles of light from above, and we SEVEN again representing the chakras or seals as they are called in revelations. the seven spirits of god, is the energy after it has passed the 7th chakra. I'm not going to get into the 144000 in this piece, it's too long.
Angels in the bible were messengers, Now science says that angles of light are messenger particles, do you understand?
It's angles of LIGHT from above that touches the brain and changes the mind, from the lower animal nature, to the jasper and amethyst and Emerald, power from the LIGHT of GOD. And in the book of John, it says that God is LIGHT.
And light is PHOTONS, and Einstein said that LIGHT comes to the earth at an angle. Angels are really ANGLES.
THE TEMPLE PATTERN
Exodus 15:8 Let them make me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them.
Exodus 25:9 According to all that I show you after the pattern of the tabernacle. Which means that there will be a pattern given of the temple that God dwells in for real. Because as we saw in Acts 7:48 God does not dwell in a temple made with hands.
So now we see that there will be a pattern given of the temple that God dwells in and we see that in Exodus 26:33
And you shall hand up the veil under the teaches and the veil shall divide between the holy place and the most holy.
Ex 25:22 "And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat.
And so the temple or dwelling place of God had an outer holy place, the inner holy of holies, and the two were separated by a veil or curtain.
Exodus 38:18 - And the hanging for the gate of the court was needlework, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: and twenty cubits was the length, and the height in the breadth was five cubits, answerable to the hangings of the court.
That was a pattern of the actual place where God dwells.
So now we will go and look at the human brain and see if there is a connection to that pattern of an outer, and inner and a veil separating the two.
THE HUMAN BRAIN TEMPLE
From Stedmans Medical dictionary.
We are looking at a description of the construction of the human brain.
The outermost layer, the dura mater (hard mother) is a tough covering that anchors the brain.
Ok so there we have the outer holy place.
The innermost layer, pia mater, tender mother, is a thin delicate membrane that inspired some early neuroanatomists with a poetical bent to compare the way this membrane envelops the brain to the gentleness of a mother caressing her infant.
Does that begin to make sense to you as to who the virgin mother truly is.
But anyway as the Bible gives us a pattern of the temple with an outer and an inner, we have an outer and an inner of the brain. Now all we need is the veil or curtain.
Between the outer dura mater (the outer holy place) and the inner pia mater lies a reticulated layer of tissue the arachnoids whose appearance reminded one of a spiders web.
Arachnoid, the web, curtain, veil.
The veil or arachnoid in your brain
So we have the Bible telling us that a pattern would be given concerning Gods dwelling place, we have the Bible telling us that god does not dwell in a building made with hands, and we have the temple pattern in Exodus duplicating the construction of the human brain which contains a temple and is not made with human hands, and the sound of no tools could be heard during it's construction.
In the Book of Exodus God provides a pattern to Moses for the construction of the temple. The Bible tells us that the most high lives not in temples made with hands.
Thus we must find a temple not made by someone. A temple not made by carpenters and masons and electricians.
The only temple is the one on your shoulders. Your head.
In Exodus the instructions are to make an outer holy place, an inner holy of holies and to separate the two by a veil or curtain.
The human brain has an outer covering called dura mater, hard mother. An inner most sensitive place called pia mater, tender mother.
Dura Mater and Pia Mater are separated by arachnoid, the web or veil or curtain.
Thus we see that the Biblical temple is actually the brain mind. And also we now see the virgin mother, the mother of God, Pia Mater. All within us.
The Mitchell hedges Crystal Skull
The skull was discovered by explorer F.A. Mitchell-Hedges in 1927 at Lubaantun, British Honduras, while searching for the lost city of Atlantis.It is estimated the skull may be up to 12,000 years old. There's twelve
Clearly the TEMPLE in the bible is the human brain.
Let us look at the writings of Paul in the Bible. Here Paul himself questions the whole horror of unholy hands in peoples pockets.
Hebrews 7:11 " If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (forerunner of the current clergy), what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchizedek. (Melchizedek is divine consciousness, Christ consciousness.)
So here Paul is saying that if the rules of religion could bring one to perfection, there would be no need for Christ. He is directly assaulting the ancient rules and the particular rule that he questions in Hebrews 7, is tithing.
Hebrews 7:12 " For the priesthood being changed there is made of necessity a change also of the law."
Here Paul says, we learn to leave the human priest and follow the divine inner priest.
Thus the law of tithing must change from physical to consciousness.
Now here is the direct reference to tithing and a statement. that we totally have misunderstood its implications.
Hebrews 7:8 And here men that die receive tithes, but there he received them of whom it is witnessed that he lives.
The Christ, the divine consciousness. And you tithe consciousness by doing two things that Jesus ordained and that Christianity refutes.
There it is. Did you see it? Do not give your money, give yourself, You are not to tithe to mortals who run religious institutions.
You are to tithe to that which lives eternally. LIVES ETERNALLY!
They, the religious ones do not live ETERNALLY, do they?
Who lives ETERNALLY?
Do you see how religion has taken these words and twisted them, convincing you, that unless you give then ten percent of your money, you can't go to heaven?
These are called prosperity preachers, they teach that if you give them money, god will give you back your due portion, and then they have these sad stories that they show on TV, someone that they paid to tell a lie, how they received a bunch of money after giving the preacher money.
And you fell for it, hook line and sinker.
There is not one single verse or account in the entire bible that is talking about money, the bible is a SPIRITUAL book, talking about overcoming the lower mind and receiving enlightenment from the East.
You didn't read your bibles, so ultimately it was your fault!
You didn't know that it is all symbols and not to be taken LITERALLY, so they, the preachers took advantage of your good nature. That's why they are ravenous wolves in sheep’s clothing.
They have multimillion dollar estates, aero planes, Mercedes cars, solid gold Rolex watches, and fancy hair styles to go with it, while they jet set around the globe on YOUR dollars staying in fancy 5 star hotels costing $25,000 a night.
And you made them wealthy, pedaling their lies, how does that make you feel? It's too late, you cannot ask for it back, you already tithed that love gift, be it $5.00 or $50,000.00
You have made Pat Robertson rich, Hal Lindsey, Jack Van Impe, Fred Price, Creflo DOLLAR, yes his name says it all, Duplantis, Myers, no clue Hagee, Shuller, the crothces, opossum head Copeland, poppin Popoff, howdy doody Tilton, the butt bonkin Bakers, Faldwell, Oral head Roberts, Koresh, Applewhite, Crying out loud Swaggart, smiling all the way to the bank Osteen, Shepherd, the guy with a 45 in his desk droor, Hinn, who wants a holy ghost machine gun to shoot the bad guys, etal.
In short every dufus that stood in the pulpit and convinced you, that in order to gain some favor from a God, you had to give THEM, your hard earned money. This is a crime of the highest magnitude, a crime against humanity.
Everyone of them should be held accountable and brought up on charges, stripped of their vestiges and bank accounts seized and emptied, to pay off the financial crises the world is now bogged down in.
Well one thing is for sure, if you want to get rich in America, get yourself in the church business, it's a sure winner.
Because Americans are FOOLS!
l. Matthew 6:22 Practice the single eye, meditate.
2. Matthew 6:25 to 6:33 Take no thought, meditate: When you take no thought you are 'tithing, you are giving up the 10% or the left side of the brain.
Yes you must tithe. You must give up the 10% or left side of the brain in meditation.
Then you will find blessings from the East, from the right side. You will sit at the right hand of power.
You now know that God does not need your money, he only needs 10% of your time, no where does tithing refer to money, except that religion had you fooled, because they said so, but you now know the truth, and are free from this 10% ball and chain the church has heaped on you, because they know you wouldn't read your bible, and even if you did you wouldn’t understand the verse anyway.
When you still the mind, you are giving your 10%.
The bible says "be still and know that I’m God" There’s only one way to be still and still the mind, and its called MEDITATION. and its in the bible wow!!!
So keep that 10% of your money and add it to your retirement account or 401k plan where it will really do you some good.
You give the Universe 10% of your time instead.
freedom is a wonderful thing indeed, it keeps your money in your wallet where it belongs.
Again; so you can see it.
"Woe unto scribes and Pharisees (lawyers)"You have taken away the key of knowledge. You entered not in yourselves and them that were entering in you hindered."
In other words religion has taken away the key because they don’t teach you to meditate. They told you to give them your money instead.
Everything is UPSIDE DOWN isn't it?
The 'last shall be first' when everybody realizes that they are going in the wrong direction.
Man (man and woman) is a spiritual being who travels through and transcends both space and time. Man's consciousness (awareness) has the power to "bind" or to "liberate" him according to the quality of his thinking and his actions.
"Heaven and hell" represent the polar opposites of the virtually infinite conditions which an individual can gravitate towards and occupy according to his thinking, willing and doing. The absolute key to understanding all of it is the natural law of "Perfect Justice".
The power of Man's consciousness to bind (attach) itself is the two-edged sword (the duality of the mind) that can also create the illusion that he or she IS his physical form and so, lives and dies with it. This is not true in "higher realities".
The truth is that "Man" IS the consciousness (as a human being), has his existence in eternity and simply animates the physical form.
Hence, the teaching of The Christ to (undistractedly) "love God with our whole heart and our whole mind" will, if diligently embraced, gradually restore us and our circumstances to perfection.
When one begins his or her path to higher consciousness, they are encouraged to embrace and practice the natural law of love. For it is love that resurrects our soul and restores our peace.
Whenever we choose love over anger, or over any of the other lower emotions, we begin to "purge" ourselves of the adverse mental and emotional conditions which may have produced chaos, pain, "dis-ease" and turmoil in our psyche and circumstances.
"Purgatory" is not a physical "place", it is the gradual "process" of the purgation and resurrection of the soul by practicing the "law of love". The "lower nature" can present a powerful aversion to accepting this truth.
The "lower nature" is, in fact, the demon (deceiver) which must be vanquished before we are able to remember that each of us is a child of the divine.
The esoteric mystery of "The Last Supper" can, perhaps, now be more readily understood. As our spirit / soul (Christus) comes forth, it begins to consume 'the bitter herbs of the beast' ("this is my body, this is my blood"), and any of the beastly tendencies of the lower nature.
The process of the "last supper" continues until all of the "dross" (lower nature) has been removed from the Golden Soul and we have, by our diligence and God's grace, restored our "original nature".
The souls who are "lost" (unaware of a spiritual "base") have forgotten these precepts and live an uncomfortable existence that goes on eternally beyond the veil of time.
Those who practice the law of love ascend a "measure" with each victory attained over the "lower nature" and experience greater and greater blessings. Everything around them is "lifted up" with them. Until, finally, they are off of the cross of "self" and attain liberation.
All souls have free will, unless, by an act of divine justice , their free will has been taken away or diminished. We always experience the results of our personal choices ( "The Golden Rule" ) and we exist in the realm of reality that best reflects our innermost self. Sometimes "causes" and "effects" may happen at surprisingly different times.
Once we have mastered or re-mastered the art of love, all that is necessary is "to ask, in order to receive". However, every "asking" requires a subsequent act of surrender to the flow that is created to answer your asking.
In the lower realms, the spirit/soul may appear to be "crucified" upon a physical form.
The body can be a vehicle of expression for the soul and possessed of great majesty and grace, or be "the cross" upon which it has been crucified.
Our thinking, willing and doing determine the quality of our experiences. The crucified Christ represents the "child of God" (our individual soul) who was (is) "slain" because of our past, and continuing, errors.
The negative or inverted ego (the separated self) is the creative impetus of all crucifixions. It represents the archetypal dilemma of "believing something into reality" and then gradually merging with "it" and then (eventually) have it begin to offend and, perhaps, even harm us.
Many believe that they are hapless "victims" of random circumstance and that God is torturing them or that God does not exist. This disposition is quite distant from the truth.
The truth is that God gives to us according to our words, thoughts and actions. Essentially, "we reap the good and/or the bad of what it is that we sow".
Religion, just say NO!
religions are the last vestige of the primitive, unenlightened, superstitious and ignorant of the world.
Yes, obviously people are basically dumb ignorant people willing to believe and follow any kind of bullshit.
The only true way is secular humanism.
God, Christ, Allah, the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, The Tooth Fairy, Zeus, etc. They are all equal in all respects. The gullibility factor of humans is incredible, but where do they get to decide what imaginary beings get to be considered legitimate whereas others are considered silly children's stories?
Oh Yeah, don't blame me for my opinion. It's "Gods Will" that I write this stuff.
I guess I do tend to tolerate Christians, and all other religious loonies.
You can't get away from them, and it's against the law to kill them.
I don't practice what I preach because I'm not the kind of person I'm preaching to.
Scholarly exegetes of the Gospels and the life of Jesus are bluntly declaring that the incidents of Gospel narrative can no longer be regarded as actual event, but must be taken as one or another form of literary artistry, legend, poetry, fiction, allegory, or Mystery play.
The declaration of one writer as to the miracle of the feeding of five thousand with five loaves and two small fishes, that "whatever else this episode may be, it is assuredly not history," is applicable to scores of incidents narrated in the Gospels. Under the blows of this sort of textual criticism, delivered with the remorseless power of fact and logic, the edifice of historical interpretation is fast crumbling.
In proportion as the historical view weakens, the allegorical approach must be re-explored. Truth emanates from the supernal world of divine ideation, and, as Plato said, comes forth in ideal forms. Man's feeble power to discern abstractions limits him to the effort to represent ideal forms by the imagery of concrete structures perceptible to his senses.
Hence he must exotericize all esoteric truths. Having done so, he then faces the fatal risk of mistaking the objective representation for the ideal reality. When spiritual vision is blurred, the human mind sinks into idolatry. In the Gospels it is reported that in his questioning of Jesus, Pilate asked "What is Truth?" The canonical Gospels do not record Jesus' answer, but it appears in an apocryphal Gospel: "Truth is from heaven."
Truth does indeed emanate from the cosmic ideation and is brought down from that high source by the soul, for only the soul can grasp and carry it. Souls descend from on high, bearing the light of divine consciousness. But, says the profound Greek philosopher, this light is dimmed and nearly extinguished by being plunged into the darkness of the body. As Browning has put it, "Wall upon wall, the gross flesh hems it in. St. Paul long ago stated the case:
"For God, who hath caused the light to shine out of the darkness, hath shined in our hearts . . . but we have this treasure in earthen vessels." Well has the poet said that the glory of God is "imprisoned splendor" in man's being, "cribbed, cabined and confined" in the dungeon of the body. The weak vision of man has distorted the archetypal forms of divine truth, which he sees but dimly in the darkness of his earthly prison.
It has never been clearly perceived that the universal, immemorial symbol of light in religion represents mind. Mind is that light eternal that God caused to shine out of the darkness of unconscious being to generate consciousness.
It was the projection of invisible reality into visibility, as the forms of the divine mind arose out of the darkness. A line from Whittier's charming winter idyl, Snow-Bound, felicitously expresses the concept. Describing the effect of pale moonlight falling upon the countryside all blanketed under snow, he speaks of the "unwarming light,"
That only seemed, where it fell To make the darkness visible."
To make the primeval darkness visible, from its fathomless depths was generated the light of mind. And the images, the archetypal forms that arose in that mind, became the realities of all existent things. The whole process of creation can be envisaged as the generation of God's divine ideas and their being crystallized into the concrete visible objects of our world.
Thus creation is the materialization of the noumenal world, the abstract made concrete. Even modern physical science discloses that all material things are crystallized sunlight. Every tree-leaf is produced by photosynthesis--and phos (phot) is the Greek world for "light."
