All Obstruct It's Creation.
How God Fools Mankind - Keeping Him Ignorant Of The Truth: Strategy 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.
The objective of this world is to learn, develop and grow and while everyone thinks they have the answers and they have it all figured out what they actually possess is the illusion of knowing and nothing more. But without the illusion of knowledge, the very purpose of this world could not be fulfilled.
Therefore, Divine Strategy 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.
While the vast majority of mankind with his very limited thinking, believes that he can Know God and understand His Ways it is man's folly to ignore the warning: "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" (Isa 55:8-9 NKJ).
And while all of mankind possess the innate ability to Know God and All Things, to reach this Enlightened Reality, man must pass many tests and expand his perception and thinking beyond the organic limitations of this world. In truth, man cannot even begin to possess true genuine knowledge and understanding, until he first realizes that he does not at present know and begins to understand the reasons why he does not presently know. In the Gospel of Thomas (see Divine Manna) it proclaims:
"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 thus, because they have been fooled by God's Divine Strategy which is in fact employed for the benefit of the lost prodigal sons and daughters, few seekers come to understand that those who think they know, are those who "dwell in poverty and it is [they, the Christians] who are that poverty." And those who dwell in this great poverty which Jesus spoke of, are those who are your teachers, your philosophical leaders, your religious authorities, as well as your secular and cultural leaders who blindly guide you into the proverbial ditch.
The Truth Is Not Of This World
Until you come to the wide-eyed stark realization that those who say they can doctrinally know God, don't and those who say there is no God, are only fooling themselves and those who believe they can teach you, can't and those who think that they can find the answers to life in the wisdom of this world, are self-deluded then you can never even begin to learn about either yourself, the truth, or your Creator-God.
While Christians are in denial, and attempt to ignore the many biblical warnings, it is openly stated that the untransformed organic mind of man, is incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom with the long ignored warning that Christians themselves will openly condemn the higher realities of the soul and spirit as utter "foolishness" labeling important teachings as heresy. And this warning by the biblical authors has been proven true as demonstrated in the fact that the Churches reject and condemn even the lesser concepts of the Mysteries of the Kingdom that Jesus could only reveal to his most faithful of disciples.
The Atheist proclaims: If there were indeed a God, then He would reveal Himself? Yet, God does not want the Atheist to believe certain areas of mind can only be developed as a non-believer. We have every variety of religious teachers who are consumed with indoctrinating others into their doctrines of belief.
Yet, God does not want the traditional teachers of religion to know the Truth God wants them to Become the Truth. God does not want the scholars and philosophers of this world to comprehend the true realities of life if they did, then they could never be subjected to the tests of life that will make them Whole and Complete. Why can't the truth and the higher reality of the soul simply be openly stated? So that all people can know the Truth?
Even if carnal men could conceive of the Truth and their own Higher Reality which they can't if they were able to understand the Truth, then this knowledge would negate the most important reasons for life itself. What are those reasons? The leaven in the parable of the Kingdom can only work under the proper conditions and if the prodigal sons and daughters knew the Truth, or were able to dispel what the scriptures called the "outer darkness" and remember how their more distant past and how they came to be at their present station in life then the leaven in the parable could no longer bring about the necessary transformation that enables the prodigals to return to the Kingdom.
If government knew the Truth, it would be classified Top Secret i.e., it can only be imparted to those who not only have prepared themselves to receive it, but have themselves evolved to a state of maturity and completion. And it was for this reason why the first century Elder Ignatius wrote in warning to the Christians of the simple-faith: “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” and why Paul stated that it was unlawful to convey to others what he witnessed while in the Kingdom: "Fourteen years ago I was taken up to heaven for a visit.
Don't ask me whether my body was there or just my spirit, for I don't know; only God can answer that. But anyway, there I was in paradise, and heard things so astounding that they are beyond a man's power to describe or put in words (and anyway I am not allowed to tell them to others)” (2 Cor 12:1-4 TLB). And why Peter is quoted by his disciple Clement as commanding: “We remember that our Lord and teacher, as commanding, said to us, guard the mysteries for me, and the sons of my house.
Wherefore also he explained to his disciples, privately, the mysteries of the kingdoms of the heavens.” (Clementine Homilies) and why Jesus concealed the Mysteries of the Kingdom in parables that could only be understood by those who were of a spiritual understanding, as seen in the words: “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these 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 KJV).
Those who say no one really knows the Truth are themselves not supposed to know. Those who will teach you the truth - are themselves counterfeit teachers. This is a realm of growth and testing - only the few who pass the test can know the Truth A true teacher will guide you in The Way to find the Truth and the Kingdom within Your Self The few who know the Truth, will always be rejected and condemned by the religious and political leaders. To know the Truth, you must convert yourself and you must become a Living Temple where Truth Manifests
There are no shortcuts -no group/church pass
Jesus stated to those who would become his disciple:
"Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it."
(Matt 7:13-14 NKJ)
Unless You Recognize That Men Of A Natural Organic Consciousness Are All Shackled To Using A Very Small Potential Of Their Mind, And All Equally Dwell In The Abyss Of Absolute Ignorance Those Who Think They Know Possess Only The Illusion Of Knowledge
Paul called the written words of the scriptures the "letter that killeth" (2 Cor 3:6). He warned the baptized believers 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, 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 who had received all the gifts and testimony of the Gospel, 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 men of flesh, as to babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 NAS).
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 The Way i.e., “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).
To this very day, what the believers of a natural organic mindset have trouble in comprehending a reality that continues to plague all people who attempt to read the scriptures is the reality that the religion preached by Paul was one of Spiritual Transformation. Paul warned those he preached to about the "letter that killeth", that their religious ideas and doctrines were merely elementary.
Paul attempted to convey this higher reality to believers who were unable to comprehend the Mysteries of God, because he was a man who was not only enlightened about the Kingdom within , but had himself been permitted entrance into the Kingdom as seen in his words that every Christian who beseeches the Lord today to enlighten their understanding, is in fact asking to see and hear “things so astounding that they are beyond a man's power to describe or put in words” and after they gaze upon these mysteries, what they have witnessed will be of such a profound nature that they will “not [be] allowed to tell them to others” (2 Cor 12:4 TLB).
Why will they not be allowed by Divine Decree, to convey to the believers in the Church what they have seen and witnessed? Because in not having evolved through the process of spiritual transformation, they are still of a carnal mind a mindset that Paul warns: The. “carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God” (Rom 8:7-8;13 NKJ).
When Paul warned that he could only speak to the believers at Corinth as "men of flesh, as to babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 NAS), what he was warning was that “Anyone who lives on milk (reads scripture literally), being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil” (Heb 5:13-14 NIV).
And because they are yet carnal not having undergone the process of spiritual transformation -- Paul warned that “And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know” (1 Cor 8:2 NKJ). For if man could simply open the scriptures and be able to discern the Truth, Jesus would not have said of his disciples: “For I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it” (Matt 13:17 NIV).
Why did Jesus say these words? Because the majority of believers who attempted to read the scriptures literally, and observe the oracles of the Word in a ritualized outward manner, were the counterfeit believers whose carnal mindset had spiritually disenfranchised them from the Kingdom within.
The evidence has proven that when the scriptures were given to the Gentiles, they immediately began to corrupt them and misinterpret the meaning because they did not possess the necessary Key of Knowledge. And this prompted James to write in the Epistle of Peter and James: "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."
Why would it be written by James and Peter that if this essential knowledge was lost, that "it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error."? Why couldn't believers merely read the scriptures, and know the truth? For many of the very same reasons why Paul warned that the believers of a natural organic mind will look upon the Mysteries of God as "foolishness"!
Why Paul warned that those who knew the Truth by virtue of their inner spiritual experiences, were not permitted to tell others what they witnessed in the Kingdom i.e., “things so astounding that they are beyond a man's power to describe or put in words” and after the few who have themselves walked in The Way, and brought about the necessary spiritual transformation of their body and mind are able to gaze upon these mysteries, what they have witnessed will be of such a profound nature that they will “not [be] allowed to tell them to others” (2 Cor 12:4 TLB).
Man's Arrogance Causes Him To Ignore The Above Warnings And Conclude, That They Are Not Applicable To Him
All People Dwell Under The Illusion & Confusion Of The Tower Of Babel Syndrome
“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).
Until you come to understand the deeper meaning of the account of the Tower of Babel, you will continue to dwell under illusion, which will limit your perception and, through the workings of the Laws, greatly suppress your understanding. Built into the Divine Strategy of the reality that is portrayed in the allegory of the Tower of Babel, is the fact that the people of this world who dwell under its influence, remain totally unaware of its effect upon their thinking and lives.
Men and women speak a different language where they remain ignorant of the fact that they should read their Bibles spiritually instead of literally, also each bring alternate realities to the equation of gender harmony and conflict.
This quagmire of massive division and state of confusion is brought about by the Laws of God, that few organic people of this world are able to understand.
In the allegorical drama presented, the flaw in the thinking of the people and this flaw is observed in the thinking of all people of an organic mindset is seen in the attempt to build the tower that reaches into the Heavens using only the earthly thinking and mindset of this world. The Key to the Dilemma is in the phrase: “they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do; and nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them” (Gen 11:6 RSV).
Thus, the key is found in the ONENESS that permits a person to accomplish all things "and nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them”!!! But how to achieve this Oneness, is not something that is easily understood. Moreover, in the same way that the outer world is a place of confusion and conflict i.e., the many languages that express reality differently the many factions that attempt to silence and prevail against all others what most people fail to recognize is the fact that what exists without us, also exists within us by way of THEIR corrupt teachings, and it is only our own inability to perceive the reality of self in Wholeness, that shelters us from the true quagmire of our own mind and being. That's why when we go into meditation , the kingdom within, will the language not be confounded anymore.
The Journey Of The Prodigal Son
If this is true, then it would appear that God has abandoned us! This can't be! Yet, in the parable of the prodigal son (the wandering soul) (Luke 15:11-31), this is exactly how the journey of the soul is presented. The prodigal son who dwelt in the Kingdom of our Heavenly Father, ventured into the "far country" (outer realms of consciousness) where he came under the control of what is portrayed as the "citizen" of this realm (the wordily organic man).
The prodigal son is portrayed as having squandered away his inheritance on riotous living, fell victim of a famine (famine is lack of spiritual growth) that caused him to be in need. While the son was in the Far Country, the citizen which is portrayed by Paul as the god of this world, possessed total control of the thinking, mindset and life of the lost prodigal son who was portrayed as (spiritually) dead. Of great importance is the fact that regardless of suffering and great hardships that the son had to endure, in no manner did the Father attempt to save him from his fate.
Why? When the prodigal son was suffering the hardships immersed in the ignorance of the Far Country and dwelled in a state of spiritual disenfranchisement why didn't the Father come to his aide? Because this world is God's School House where his sons and daughters evolve and grow to maturity as did their elder Brother Jesus and others who have themselves walked in The Way.
And as portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son which Jesus taught, it was not until the son (the lost soul) had matured to the degree that he understood and comprehended his plight, that he was able to return to the Kingdom and enter into Life. Thus, so long as man dwells in this, the far country and embraces the thinking and mindset of the religious leaders and authorities of this world he will remain under the power and control of the god of this world (the ego).
And it is not until he matures enough to break free from the shackles of ignorance and corruption, that he will be given the Power to begin the journey in The Way that will return him to his Source of Being. And the secret to understanding, is portrayed in the desire of the son to become as a servant. Therefore, it will remain impossible for you to know the Truth or escape what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of this world until you first understand what it means to become a servant of The Way and live the life of the servant in word, thought, desire and deed.
Jesus Taught In Parables To Conceal The Truth
Jesus taught in parables to conceal the Mysteries of God from the multitude of people who he said were blind and incapable of perceiving and comprehending the true meaning of life and the Kingdom of God which was within them. If Jesus had spoken of the Mysteries of God openly, then the people of this world would have rejected his words as "foolishness" Why does men of an organic mind look upon the higher realities of their own soul and spiritual natures as "foolishness"?
Because the god of this world who Jesus portrayed as the "citizen" in the parable of the prodigal son, controls the thinking and lives of those who are lost in this, the "far country", and will not permit them to comprehend their own higher soul and spiritual natures or their inheritance as the Offspring of the Most High who Jesus taught was our Father.
So, in order to help them in their condition of profound blindness, Jesus embedded the Mysteries of God and the realities of our own higher soul and spirit within a series of parables the understanding of which could only be comprehended by those who picked up their own cross, and followed in The Way (inner meditation).
And because neither the god of this world (the ego) or his prophets and servants who corrupted the scriptures, and created a shadow church in this world, could understand the inner meaning, these sacred secrets of the Kingdom remain preserved to this day as a portal for the true seekers to know the Truth receive the Divine Manna from Heaven which enlightens and reveals to the faithful disciples of The Way the reality of All Things and return to their Heavenly Father.
After visiting the Inner Kingdom, Paul warned that it is unlawful to reveal the Sacred Secrets of the Kingdom to the Church-believing Christians of the simple faith calling himself an "Ambassador in bonds" who was restrained from speaking the truth openly. Ignatius, the first century Elder who was a disciple of John, warned the Christians 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.”
"And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie" (2 Thes 2:11 NKJ). And in like manner it is written: "Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil against thee" (2 Chr 18:22 KJV) "The LORD has mixed within her a spirit of distortion; they have led Egypt astray in all that it does, as a drunken man staggers in his vomit" (Isa 19:14 NAS).
In the same way that an embryo evolves into a fetus a fetus into an infant -an infant into a adolescent an adolescent into a mature adult image of it's parents the same Laws insure the Completion of the mind, soul and spirit of man as he evolves to his Ultimate Destiny.
While The Teachings Of Jesus Are The Truth The Way Of The Churches Bring Spiritual Death
Your Choice Is To Follow The Doctrines of Men Doctrines Which Were Anticipated By Jesus, James, Peter And Paul Doctrines Which Were Openly Condemned In The Bible Or You Can Walk in The Way That Jesus Ordained And Taught You Can't Serve Two Masters You Can't Be Faithful To Man made Church Doctrines And Be Faithful To Jesus teachings or the higher consciousness at the same time.
The Pharisees Had Become Spiritually Compromised While They Called Upon The Lord With Their Lips Their Ways Were Not The Way Of The Lord, for they neither went in themselves, and they didn't suffer to teach those to go in (meditate).
Jesus Said: "But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin (lower emotions). He who hates Me hates My Father also" (John 15:21-23 NKJ).
The Fallacy Of Salvation By Faith Alone: Christians maintain that they are saved by faith totally apart from their actions and works -- and their salvation is guaranteed from the moment they accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. But is this the original teachings of Jesus?
Reply: 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 and those 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 the Churches preach, ".there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."
These, and other such spiritual concepts, were totally unacceptable to the fourth century heathen Church of Rome and while these few passages continue to exist, the scriptures were corrupted in order to make the Gospels support the doctrines of a series of Roman Emperors who ruled over the Church from the fourth century onward.
That the Church has abandoned the original teachings of Jesus to the degree that when it is proven that the fourth century Church even edited and corrupted the very words of God spoken to man means that until the Church itself repents of this great sin against the Holy Spirit, they will remain under a cloud of ignorance in an exile state in a Spiritual Diaspora.
What does the Apostle of faith say? To the Romans he warns: "Do not be arrogant, but be afraid. For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either. Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off" (Rom 11:20-22 NIV).
Peter Warns That Christians Are Worse Off Than The Unbelievers:
How can Peter warn that the fate of complacent Christians is in fact worse off than those who had never come into contact with the Gospel Message? Thus, we have a great void that modern Christians totally lack the insight to understand. An honest Christian would recognize that the words of Peter are so contrary to modern-day belief, that these words should literally haunt every person who calls themselves a Christian believer: "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." Every Christian should ask themselves: How Can This Be??? How can those who have never known the inner teachings of Christ, be better off than those who having heard, and are complacent towards those teachings? It would appear that Peter is stating that those who had never heard the Gospel message and had themselves committed much sin (living off of the lower mind) will never know that they are in error, because thwey are not ready for the inner spiritual message to begin with.
Christians promote the doctrine that only those who believe can be saved and here Peter is stating the opposite is true and that those people who claim to believe, and fall back to their old ways where they embrace the culture and ways of this world, will in fact be worse off after they have come to believe, than before they began to believe. Moreover, the shepherds and blind guides that Peter is making reference to, are those who preach the modern doctrine of using the Gospel as a license to dwell in perpetual sin (emotions) that is promoted in churches today i.e., "This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature." (2 Peter 2:10 NIV).
Christians Ignore What They Don't Possess The Capacity To Understand:
Because the above statements by both Peter and Paul simply have no place in modern Church dogma dogma which is representative of totally man made explanations by spiritually disenfranchised authorities of the Church Christians would rather ignore the implications of these statements of warning, than to seek to understand why such statements of warning was written to the community of believers. Thus, the community of believers exercise absolute blind faith in the leaders of their respective Churches, even when the dogma contrived by these leaders is in total opposition to the core principles of the Gospel message and teachings.
While Christians dwell under the grave misconception that they exercise faith in Jesus, they are not but rather, they exercise faith in the doctrines of the Church which came into existence in the fourth century under Pagan Rome. Further, in view of the fact that the early Church changed and corrupted the very Words of God spoken to man in order to totally alter their meaning and context the Jesus which they claim to exercise faith in is a man made creation by Roman Emperors who ruled over the Church.
While the majority of people who call themselves Christians while in practice, they are not believe that they have a license to live in abject lawlessness and questionable moral values by virtue of the dogma of their respective Churches the very dogma of the Church which they embrace, is totally rejected by the authors of the scriptures they claim to believe in.
Why? Because the dogma of their respective Churches has so alienated the community of believers from the core Gospel teachings and objectives, that it has become impossible for the very people who champion the scriptures with their lips, to understand the higher spiritual reality of the message.
And thus, they choose to totally ignore what their man made doctrines of belief have inhibited them from understanding. And in their blind ignorance, they have made themselves the latter-day embodiment of the statement: "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves" (Matt 23:15 KJV).
And if the question is posed: How can I make such a statement? Does not Paul warn that the dogma of the Church teaches the believers to openly "commit apostasy" to the degree that modern believers are taught to "crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt" while ignoring the reality that "there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins"???
And in the same vein, does not Peter warn with respect to those who have been seduced by the dogma of the Church that their end is actually worse than before they embraced the dogma of the Churches i.e., "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."
And the congregation of believers are forced to ignore these core teachings, for no other reason than the pseudo-authorities of the Churches removed essential teachings that are necessary to understand the very foundation of the Gospel message a massage that they no longer possess the capacity to comprehend with any depth. They have never taught the truth about the inner journey that christ spoke of, the journey of meditation.
And because the church failed to teach meditation as the key to enter the kingdom. Jesus casts you off into outer darkness
Though ye be gathered together with me in my bosom, if ye do not my commandants, I will cast you forth". This same verse of scripture is quoted in what is historically known as the 2nd Epistle of Clement, where it is written: "Let us, then, not only call Him Lord, for that will not save us. For He saith, 'Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall be saved, but he that worketh righteousness'. For this reason the Lord hath said, 'Even though ye were gathered together to me in my very bosom, yet if ye were not to keep my commandments, I would cast you off, and say unto you, Depart from me; I know you not whence ye are, ye workers of iniquity".
The inner spiritual meaning of the scriptures the knowledge of the soul and what Paul portrayed as the knowledge of the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God and even the reality and meaning of the life that each person is presently living can only be revealed and understood, by those who have prepared themselves to be a Final temple which is a foundational Gospel Objective of Jesus' teachings. By using Jesus as a pagan mojo i.e., as a license to sin in the manner that the Churches preach openly crucifying the Son of God afresh by virtue of a cultural mindset and worldly lifestyle the Christian world is proof positive of the reality of this important teaching.
And because they presently dwell in a Spiritual Diaspora, they remain in what Jesus portrayed as the Prison and/or what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind, controlled by satan (the ego) in the far country ( Spiritual Egypt).
"This Age of lawlessness and unbelieving lies under the sway of Satan, who will not allow what lies under the unclean spirits to understand the truth and power of God; therefore, they said to Christ, reveal your righteousness now. Christ answered them, The term of years for Satan's power has now expired, but other terrors are at hand. I was delivered to death on behalf of sinners, that they might return to the truth and sin no more, that they might inherit that glory of righteousness which is spiritual and imperishable in heaven" (Moffatt, quoting Gospel Of Mark in Codex W
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Rom 10:13 KJV).
Yet, to their own demise, the meaning of the statement to "call upon the name of the Lord", in no manner cancels out the above warnings and statements by the same author. Paul did not in any manner say that if you call upon the name of the Lord and yet, continue to live in the manner of the culture and mindset of this world that you will inherit the salvation and entrance into Life that is promised in the Gospels. In fact, quite contrary to modern Church doctrine, Paul commands to be totally separate from the people and ways of this world i.e.,
"Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty" (2 Cor 6:17-18 NIV). To the degree that Paul commands not even to eat with a person who is immoral or an idolater i.e., "But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler.
With such a man do not even eat" (1 Cor 5:11 NIV). What is clear is that modern Christians are absolutely clueless as to the context of the salvation by faith that Paul made reference to. And the dogma that the Church promotes, is the fulfillment of Paul's warning with respect to those who continue to embrace the ways of this world after coming of the knowledge of the Lord, 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."
A sincere knower would only want to embrace what would be portrayed as spiritually valid doctrines. In order to be spiritually valid, the person's call upon the name of the Lord must be within the context of the parable of The Call to the Wedding Feast, which is the culmination of the solar energy into the brain (temple), after it has gone through the seven seals (chakras).
Thus, Jesus confirmed the validity of this spiritual fact in the words: "Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: 'These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men' " (Matt 15:7-9 NKJ).
In view of the above, the Christian doctrine of forgiveness of lives of perpetual sin by merely calling upon the Lord with one's lips, is very much "in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men". They fail to realize that the abolishment of sins 9the lower emotions) happens when one has overcome the five senses in meditation, taking no thought.
Thus, Jesus commanded and said: "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46 KJV). And this is why Jesus warned those who would call themselves his followers and believers: “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it” (Matt 10:38-39 NKJ). That's meditation.
What does the scriptures state: "Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, 'I said, You are gods '?" (John 10:34 NKJ). If Jesus confirmed the Law which declared that we are gods, then what is our true nature? When the first century Christian Justin Martyr quoted the 82nd chapter of Psalms from his scriptures, the sacred writings that he used did not read as ours does today. “God standeth in the congregation of gods”, Justin wrote, "I said, Ye are gods, and are all children of the Most High.”
The great truth that has been continually expressed by both Jewish and Christian visionaries is that the knowledge of the mysteries of God and the Divine Plan begins with the knowledge of ourselves as the Prodigal Sons of our Heavenly Father. 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”.
In his treaties on The Soul and the Resurrection, St Gregory writes that “the Resurrection is no other thing than 'the re-constitution of our nature in its original form’”, and states that there will come a time “when the complete whole of our race shall have been perfected from the first man to the last”. Once the rest of the world understand the true nature of the scriptures and their inner meaning.
The reason these great truths are no longer the focus of the modern church is best captured in the words of A. Powell Davies: “Biblical scholars”, he writes, ”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).
What Davies was referring to was the fact that in the fourth century, the Church of Constantine so altered the focus of the teachings of the New Covenant, that what we call Christianity today has its doctrinal legacy of birth in Pagan Rome, and has little in common with the religion that the Son of God revealed to man at the beginning of our Common Era.
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 Jesus showed the way to resurrection of the dead animal personality by declaring "if thine eye be single, thy whole body will fill with light " God, and Jacob called the place pineal, the stimulation of the pineal body in the brain, via the act of meditation.
You must receive and become your true self i.e., the Being of light, while you are still alive in the physical body as demonstrated in the words from the Gospel of Philip: "If anyone becomes a child of the bridal chamber, he will receive the light. If anyone does not receive it while he is here, he will not be able to receive it in the other place.
He who will receive that light will not be seen, nor can he be detained. And none shall be able to torment a person like this, even while he dwells in the world. And again when he leaves the world, he has already received the truth in the images. The world has become the Aeon (eternal realm), for the Aeon is fullness for him. This is the way it is: it is revealed to him alone, not hidden in the darkness and the night but hidden in a perfect day and a holy light."
It is impossible for most Christians to succeed in the manifestation of the pattern (of Jesus) within themselves, because they are of a peasant/serf/subject mindset. They worship the false God, a worldly ego-driven king telling him how wonderful he is.
Thus, they see themselves as subjects that must appease and glorify the false king in contradistinction to imitating the pattern that that the character Jesus perfected in his own life and return as the first prodigal son within himself which fulfilling of the Law enables each prodigal son and daughter to learn directly from the Indwelling Son of God, and grow to their own full maturity in Messiah/Christ. Thus, Paul writes to the congregation at Galatians: "My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you" (Gal 4:19-20 NIV
And if a Christian fulfilled the requirements of second birth by the mere profession of words as Christians believe and practice today, then Paul never would have stated these words to the Galatians. And that because of the modern Church's subject/peasant mindset of appeasement with their lips, that fails to embrace the necessary pattern that enables them to fulfill the Law within themselves, they fail to understand and bring about the Spiritual Birth from the Virgin consciousness within themselves.
Thus, they fail to understand that both the wives of Abraham are an allegory as well as the account of the Virgin Birth of Jesus and they remain totally ignorant of the meaning of Paul's words when he wrote: "Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bond maid, the other by a free woman.
But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the free woman was by promise. Which things are an allegory." (Gal 4:21-24 KJV) an allegory which portrays the first stage of birth which is of the flesh, and the second stage of birth which is of the promise and the Spirit and is presented in the allegory of the Virgin Birth, Christ be formed in you.
That's what they all missed.
"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" Philip
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 man made. 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 man made 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
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 (dwell in the lower emotions) 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 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. 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 incapable of understanding the core meaning of the Gospel and the scriptures, that the kingdom is within, and that you must go into thy closet and enter within yourself.
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 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.”.
“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. 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”.
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". (living apart from true spirituality). 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."
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).
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” Eventually meditation will take a firm hold and then we will come back to the fathers house, the right hemispheres of our brains.
“Though many that call themselves Christians, do not act as if they believed it; it is certain, that, when we embrace Christ, we must let go the world, for we cannot serve God and mammon we must devote ourselves entirely to the conduct and government of our Lord Jesus; Come, and follow me in to inner realm, meditation.
Because the symbolism of the scriptures are true when turned within self, the Christians are being used as a vehicle that is necessary to preserve these important symbols and concepts. Which means that if anyone seriously embraces the symbols and truly begins to do God's Will i.e., “If any of you really determines to do God’s will, then you will certainly know whether my teaching is from God or is merely my own” (John 7:17 TLB) Very similar to Buddha's statement, don't believe me, check it out for yourself.
"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 Jesus speaks about (is the kundalini energy moving up the spine, then it must pass through the narrow opening at the base of the skull (atlas), and then move through narrow circuits of the temple (brain), 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.
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".
The Bible continually warns us that the path or the second birth and entrance into the Kingdom is not easy, WHY? because few will ever understand the scripture, and those that do, fewer even will practice daily meditation.
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 in daily mediation, overcoming God's enemies (thought), iron chariots.
Since the Kingdom is within us (Lk 17:20-21), 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 (12 cranial nerves) into the city (the brain). 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). That's the lower animal nature.
The reality of this inner Kingdom was further confirmed when Jesus stated to the Pharisees: "Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, 'See here!' or 'See there!' For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21 NKJ).
You can't SEE it, because it's invisible and it is WITHIN you, that's why it comes NOT with observation, yet Christians are waiting to see Jesus by OBSERVATION, totally against what the verse just said, now you know why christianity is the anti-christ.
Divine Manna Of The Kingdom And The Gospel Of Thomas:
The 114 sayings of the Gospel of Thomas is the Key to entering the Kingdom Within. To know their meaning, you must first explore and Know Thyself. Thus, the sayings are themselves a catalyst for spiritual transformation. One of the most important statements within the sayings is that "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 the finding of self is the primary objective of all scriptures.
And when we add to this the statement from the Gospel of Philip that "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,¹ they will not receive anything (when) they die" we can begin to understand that the doctrines of the simple faith that Paul called the "milk" of the Gospel of Christ, is truly elementary and only the beginning of entry-level teachings of The Way, literally reading scripture as opposed to reading them spiritually.
Which means that one of the primary objectives of Jesus' teachings is to become a Disciple of The Way (meditation), and bring about that condition within one's own body-mind Temple, where one can be with the Lord "in the House", and receive the Mysteries of God from the One Teacher of Light. To accomplish this, you must learn to turn the Key of Knowledge i.e., the scriptures within yourself.
The True Meaning of not only the Gospel of Thomas, but also of all genuine scriptures, can only be revealed to those who gain the experiential knowledge through direct revelation of the One Teacher within. Thus, the words:
"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 Gnostic Way is to manifest the Divine Pattern in the Life of the person in every action, word and desire we express, so as to overcome the divisions that exist in the consciousness of the physical reflections of man. In order to accomplish this we must come to see life from a higher perspective, higher consciousness, that overcomes the apparent paradoxes of the lower perspectives or lower ego mind.
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 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."
What is the Key of Knowledge?
How could Yeshua/Jesus say that the Key of Knowledge was possessed by the Pharisees?
How did the Pharisees take away the Key of Knowledge?
What did the Pharisees not enter in themselves?
How did the Pharisees hinder those who were attempting to enter in?
Since the Pharisees did not possess Jesus, what was it that they did possess?
Did the disciples of jesus possess the Key of Knowledge?
Did the early Christian Church possess the Key of Knowledge?
Do Christians today possess the Key of Knowledge?
Did anyone really know that the KEY was to enter within in meditation?
Origen writes: “But lest this difficulty perhaps should be supposed to exist only in the language of the prophets, seeing the prophetic style is allowed by all to abound in figures and enigmas, what do we find when we come to the Gospels? Is there not hidden there also an inner, namely a divine sense, which is revealed by that grace alone which he had received who said, ‘But we have the mind of Christ, that we might know the things freely given to us by God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Spirit teacheth?’
And if one now were to read the revelations which were made to John, how amazed would he not be that there should be contained within them so great an amount of hidden, ineffable mysteries, in which it is clearly understood, even by those who cannot comprehend what is concealed, that something certainly is concealed. And yet are not the Epistles of the Apostles, which seem to some to be plainer, filled with meanings so profound, that by means of them, as by some small receptacle, the clearness of incalculable light appears to be poured into those who are capable of understanding the meaning of divine wisdom?
And therefore, because this is the case, and because there are many who go wrong in this life, I do not consider that it is easy to pronounce, without danger, that any one knows or understands those things, which, in order to be opened up, need the key of knowledge; which key, the Savior declared, lay with those who were skilled in the law”. Those that know the spiritual meaning of the words of the bible. "Those that can deciphre it's deep symbols, who but a genius can do that"
Paul called the written words of the scriptures the "letter that killeth" (2 Cor 3:6). He warned the baptized believers 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 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 who had received all the gifts and testimony of the Gospel, 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 men of flesh, as to babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 NAS).
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 The Way i.e., Paul warns: “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).
To this very day, what the believers of a natural organic mindset have trouble in comprehending a reality that continues to plague all people who attempt to read the scriptures is the reality that the religion preached by Paul was one of Spiritual Transformation. Paul warned those he preached to about the written words of the scriptures which he portrayed as the "letter that killeth", that their religious ideas and doctrines were merely elementary
Like a child entering kindergarten, what Paul called the "testimony" of Christ and the physical crucifixion was an entry-level beginning and Paul attempted to convey this higher reality of soul, spirit and the Kingdom to believers who were unable to comprehend the Mysteries of God, because he was a man who was not only enlightened about the Kingdom within but had himself been permitted entrance into the Kingdom.
This entrance into the Kingdom is seen in his words that every Christian who beseeches the Lord today to enlighten their understanding, is in fact asking to see and hear “things so astounding that they are beyond a man's power to describe or put in words” and the few who possess the Key of Knowledge and are able to open the inner door to the Heavenly Kingdom, after these select few gaze upon these mysteries, what they have witnessed will be of such a profound nature that they will “not [be] allowed to tell them to others” (2 Cor 12:4 TLB).
The fact that the modern congregation of Christians can't explain why those who overcome and are able to enter the Inner Kingdom cannot even share with other believers what they witnessed, should cause every person who claims to be a believer to re-examine with they think they know and believe.
The King James version goes as far as to state with respect to the esoteric knowledge that those who use the Key of Knowledge to open the Inner "narrow strait gate" to the Kingdom and acquire this sacred knowledge "which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor 12:4 NKJV) to the believers of the simple faith that Paul portrays as receiving only the entry-level "milk" of the Gospel and yet, because the Gentiles who portrayed themselves as Orthodox had entered into a covenant with Pagan Rome (the lower mind) embracing the dogma of the emperor (the ego) whose armies (negative lower thoughts) murdered all who he deemed heretics, the mind that seeked higher spiritual aspiration, those thoughts were murdered.
In a total rejection of Jesus' own words and the Authentic Gospel Message, while the Church continues to look for the kingdom of Never Never Land to come upon the earth, they very much remain as the lost prodigal sons who have been robbed of not only their inheritance, but the very knowledge that they must themselves return from their journey into the Far Country, by intimately embracing the teachings of The Way that Jesus taught.
And, regardless of the overwhelming evidence to support the original Ten Words spoken by God to mankind at the baptism of Jesus, the modern Church rejects the Words of God, and embraces the paganism of the Roman Emperors who changed the words of God, and ruled over the doctrines of the Church beginning in the fourth century. Of the takeover and rule of the Church by the Roman Emperor Constantine, Edward Gibbon writes:
”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”.
Constantine not only further corrupted the most corrupted versions of the scriptures but then ordered his armies to hunt down the true followers of Jesus, and had them murdered. And thus, the Roman Empire was not converted to the religion of Jesus but rather, Jesus' teachings were corrupted to support the doctrines of Pagan Rome and this outlandish fraud continues right into our present time.
“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).
“I have manifested Your name (received the higher consciousness from above) to the men (the mind) whom You have given Me out of the world (the inner self). 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).
“The very scholars who should be most capable of working on the documents and interpreting them have displayed a not altogether surprising, but nonetheless curious, reluctance to go to the heart of their matter. The scholars appear to have held back from making discoveries which, there is evidence to believe, 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”.
From the perspective of the church which called itself orthodox: What Jesus truly taught was too Gnostic, and undermines the establishment of a secularly based institutionalized church. What these spiritual concepts declare is that the coming of the kingdom is not an event which will take place in the physical world so as to be seen (Lk 17:20) but rather, within ourselves.
The kingdom will come when we make the two within us into one (when we bring both hemispheres of the brain into one accord) the person we are without (in the world) the same as the Divine Person we are within and when we have eliminated -by merging into oneness the feminine and masculine polarities within us. In the words of Jesus: Only when we have accomplished these things within and without ourselves, can the Kingdom come.
The genuine Christian doctrine is easy to confirm. Jesus never ordained a class of priests whose job it was to perform rituals and prayers on behalf of the people. The religious principles that Jesus taught were purely spiritual i.e., his disciples were to go forth and proclaim to the people that if they changed their direction, and walked in The Way, they could enter into the Kingdom of God, and be saved from the fate of death that this world holds.
The disciples (the 12 aspects of the mind) and apostles were not to teach, as our religious authorities teach today but rather, they were to lead the people to the One Teacher the True Prophet within that is the only Genuine Source of Knowledge for the disciple of the Light.
The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come" (Matt 22:2-3 KJV). As the prodigal sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, The Call has been made to each of you to return to the Kingdom which you once departed from, before venturing into this world which Jesus portrayed as "the far country".
And The Call is not to come to a Church, Synagogue, Mosque or Temple of this world but rather, to return to the Kingdom Within, by the act of meditation, (the secret hidden key) which you can enter by travailing in the "narrow way" that Jesus taught Because if you don't hear The Call, and come to the voice of the Shepherd of the flock while you are still alive in the physical body, you will not be able to enter the Kingdom when you pass from this life. And while you will not perish and cease to exist, you will not go to Glory as the some believe, or reincarnate as others believe but you will have squandered away an opportunity that may not so readily be available to you in the future.
And if you begin to truly understand the timeless message of the Gospels, you will come to know that religious leaders are merely Pharisees by another name, and most cultural and secular leaders are very much as the Romans.
Nothing has changed on the stage of life the players merely use different names in order to fool you.
God Desires You To Build The Final Temple
Within Your Own Body-Mind
But The Religions Of Judaism, Christianity and Islam
All Obstruct It's Creation.
Rabbi Yisrael Ben Eliezer who came to be known by Chassidic Jews as the Baal Shem Tov (The Master of the Good Name), embraced the path of the Mystic seeking Union with G-d. But to understand what can be portrayed as Spiritual Judaism, you must first understand the reality that Jesus presented when he stated that the Kingdom of God is within us (Lk 17:20-21) and that this Inner Kingdom can be accessed by those who make themselves a fit and consecrated vessel unto the Lord in the silence of daily meditation for at least fifteen minutes. And in acknowledgement of this higher reality, it was during one of these soul-ascents to heaven that the Baal Shem Tov ascended to the heavenly abode of the Messiah and asked him:
"Master when are you coming?" Messiah answered, "When the wellsprings of your teachings shall spread outward." In other words, what was revealed to Rabbi Eliezer was that Messiah cannot come until the teaching of the Inner Spiritual Torah which reveals the Final Temple, has first reached all Jewish people, and then ultimately to the entire world. According to Lubavitch teaching: "God has long been ready to bring Messiah, and Messiah is anxious to come. Until now his path was obstructed by the imperfections in the world."
What this means is that it is the condition of the world and particularly of the Jewish people which hastens or delays the coming of the Messiah and the Kingdom of G-d. This is illustrated by a story from the Talmud which says that the Messiah will come "Today if you would only listen to his voice." And where is his voice? WITHIN us!!
But to hear his voice, one must enter WITHIN themselves and become the embodiment of the Final Temple.
Thus, the spiritual Jew ("A Jew is one INWARDLY" Romans) whose eyes and mind has begun to be opened to the Spiritual Torah that Jews of the flesh and carnal men are without the eyes to see, and are blind to, must hear the calling: Are you ready to reveal the spiritual truths and the Key of Knowledge that all men must possess in order to gaze upon the True Word of G-d?
Acknowledged By Judaism
Corrupted By Christianity
Demonized By Radical Islam
The above words, represents one of the most profound spiritual insights that must be acknowledged by the leaders of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. That the vast majority of carnal Jews did not understand the allegorical nature of their own scriptures and in their ignorance, they built a shadow temple in this world where they sacrificed innocent animals is one of the primary reasons why the Jesus opposed the religious authorities of his day in the biblical Myth.
The word Messiah, which in Greek is translated the Christ, and in English is the Anointed, indicates one whose mind has been Enlightened, by the Chrism that has risen to the brain. Anointed and Chosen by God to guide Israel. But what is Israel? Once again, it is not the person of the flesh but rather, of the Spirit.
ISIS RA ELOHIM, the fully manifested light WITHIN.
And the confrontation between Jesus and the Pharisees in the New Covenant Gospels, was a reenactment of the proverbial struggle between the spirit and the flesh i.e., Able and Cain Light and darkness good and evil the Left and Right brains, and these are the struggles that exist within each of us and as the prodigal sons and daughters who presently dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the Far Country (the outer realms of divine consciousness), it is this struggle that each of us must overcome.
"Thus the tales related in the Torah are simply her outer garments, and woe to the man who regards that outer garb as the Torah itself, for such a man will be deprived of portion in the next world"
Jesus correctly stated that the Kingdom of God can never come upon the earth in the manner that carnal men predict, because it is within us all of us equally. And since the Torah is a series of allegorical symbols and forms that portray inner realities of body, mind/soul and spirit to those who possess the eyes to see beneath what is presented as the "outer garb as the Torah itself"
It is important to recognize that what is being portrayed is not a consensus opinion between male and female but rather, the development of the powers of consciousness, mind and being of both polarities (male/female), which expands and deepens the minds of the joined opposites in a type of matrix of mind that causes both the twelve spheres (12 desciples) of mind and the seven spiritual centers (seven chakras and endocrine glands) to interact in a process of alchemical bio-fission transformation ( kundalini energy) that will initiate the next stage of birth which transcends the limitations of this world.
A consensus opinion means that you accommodate each other in ways that bring physical harmony which is often based upon pure sexual or emotional need. I am making reference to a relationship and union that develops a man as a man, a woman as a woman, and evolves the third-reality of higher mind that is neither male or female as an integral part of the union. In the same way that an embryo is One and yet it is comprised of a perfect balance of the DNA of it's mother and father it is this parallel manifestation of Oneness that must be the foundation of the Divine Marriage that brings about the next stage of soul-birth.
From a purely physical holographic perspective, the spiritual-physical is represented in the seven glands, or Spiritual Centers of the body. The twelve spheres of mind that are portrayed in the diagram of the Tree of Life (and above in the head, the 12 cranial nerves) that is superimposed over the DiVinci man, represent the twelve spheres of mind and are physically connected through the organs of the body.
Which means that the whole of the body is as much the mind, as is the brain which is confused to be the mind, because it is the upper power center of the mind. It's opposite is the sex organs in the lower nature. Once understood, the lower three earthly spiritual centers (the first three chakras), are the feminine-reflective opposites of the upper Four heavenly centers (the chakras above the diaphragm).
And in the same way that the outer columns of mind in the diagram of the Tree of Life consisting of three spheres of mind in each column are in fact male and female in relation to each other and when the outer columns rule over one's thinking, this is very much the eating of the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality.
In like manner, what is portrayed as the Heavenly Kingdom in the utmost top sphere of mind, is in fact the gender and relational opposite of the Earthly Kingdom which is presented as the bottom most spheres. And it is the bringing of these two opposite spheres i.e., Heaven and Earth into the Center, that is the objective of the teachings of The Way. And it is this objective that is portrayed with respect to when and how the Kingdom will come, in the version of the saying in the Gospel of the nazarinesin the words:
"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."
And as stated in the above, this objective is achieved through meditation.
When the twelve spheres of mind are drawn with the Star of David overlain, what is indicated is total balance of the Laws and Wholeness. Three spiritual centers exist in the head and are physically represented in the glands and in the division of what is portrayed as heaven and earth, these upper three centers represent the heavenly, in contradistinction to the three earthly spiritual centers or glands in the lower body.
The balance in the center, is the key to what is portrayed in the End Times prophecies of heaven on earth. These spiritual centers which are physically manifest in the glands, are the source of the vital life-force entering into the body from the spiritual centers that animates the twelve spheres of mind, that must be used in order to expand the mind beyond the organic limits which are biologically represented in the gender roles as man or woman.
In the allegory of the Fall of Man in Genesis, we see the Divine Pattern of Creation represented in the symbolism of Adam and Eve and in the separation and the eating of the fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil), we have the allegorical symbolism of the Fall of Man in the Alpha of Creation.
But the Fall was not due to sin, as championed by the Church but rather, the result of the fact that no experiential knowledge existed and we became divided within ourselves. But it is through this division and interactions of opposites, that we begin to evolve the Light of the Soul bringing about Completion and our Destiny in the Omega of Absolute Enlightened Light and Knowing. And this is accomplished through the Journey of the Soul in meditation as the soul clims the ladder (the spine).
"Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates (12 cranial nerves) into the city" (Rev 22:14
And the twelve spheres of mind are portrayed in the image at the right. The Tree of Duality represents that condition when there is separation in the outer columns to the left and right, and/or the upper heavenly kingdom with respect to the lower earthly kingdom. The vital life-force that of course animates and powers the mind, is drawn from the seven spiritual centers (or chakras) which in the above reference at Rev 2:7, are the symbolism of the seven churches (seven chakras).
And Paul correctly warned that you can't be saved by the outward ritual works of the written word of the Law that the reader of the scriptures who failed to understand the allegorical manner they were composed in, embraced what Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth".
Because the literal written word of the scriptures portrays the Left Hand of God (the left hemisphere of the brain), while the inner spiritual meaning that lies beneath the allegorical garb, reveals the Right Hand (Right hemisphere of the brain) that can sustain and save.
The Left Hand is the reflective matrix reality i.e., Lucifer and this reflective reality is called the Bringer of Light, because the reflective reality is a corrective response to our actions in this world i.e., the fruit of our past words, thoughts, desires and deeds that through confrontation, forces an upward movement towards completion. Thus, the reality of the words with respect to the Laws that, as you do unto others, the same will be returned unto yourself.
Speaking of Simon Magus in the Clementine writings, the Apostle Peter is quoted as stating: "He is a power of the left hand of God, and has authority to do harm to those who know not God, so that he 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.
Notice that Simon Magus is portrayed as a leader who has "authority" from the Left Hand of God, to bring about, initiate and invoke harm among the people i.e., the lost prodigal sons who dwell under the shackles and control of the Citizen of the Far Country, which Paul called the god of this world.
More importantly is the fact that ultimately, the evil of Simon Magus and the apostates who followed him, as well as those who that Left Hand Power which is allegorically portrayed as Satan (the ego), not only has control over the mind, but is portrayed as being ordained by God to bring about good through the growth that results from self-induced tribulation. And what is this self-induced tribulation? It is embodied in the Laws that return to each person the fruit of their own effort in meditation.
The ancient scriptures talk about the soul being trapped in the prison of the body. But the way out is not to disdain the body and seek a life of pure spirit."We can not escape our obligation to the animal who is lending us his body for our own advancement. We came hither to transfigure these brute bodies. That's what the entire Bible story, the entire Bhagavad gita story, and the Buddhists teachings are all about, to transform the mind to it's highest conscious potential.
According to Plato and the ancients, hades was not a place of punishment for departed human souls. It is this earth, which is the death of the divine soul. The gods came to die so that we mortals might live."Death" is a transition from one state to another.When humans have the right understanding, they can birth the god and thus uplift earthly existence.
As long as people are ignorant of their divine purpose, the gods are dead, and this earth has become hades or the underworld to the gods. When we awaken to the divine soul within, we bring it to life, and in the words of St. Paul "Death is swallowed up in victory."
Hell as a place of punishment in an after-life is simply a teaching of repression, widely used by the Churches. A just God does not deal out eternal punishment. The worst "punishments" we face are in this life. If we do not nurture the divine soul here and now, we punish ourselves by not achieving our true potential.
The meaning of "satan" and sin
The divine soul "falls" to earth and incarnates in human beings. This is Lucifer, the light bringer, coming to earth. The divine soul becomes trapped in the animal body, and it is very easy for it to be overwhelmed by the animal nature. When then happens it becomes brutish and beastial or "satanic". This is the true meaning of the Beast 666 or Satan. But Christianity created a being of pure evil called "Satan". It's a perpetual puzzle to Christians why the all powerful God tolerates absolute evil.
The divine soul needs the animal nature in order to progress. It needs an opponent to wrestle with so that it can develop its powers. William Blake wrote: "Without Contraries is no progression" (Marriage of Heaven and Hell). Christianity does not understand this dynamic process, and thereby makes it virtually impossible for the divine soul to achieve its evolutionary task.
No historical Jesus
"The Vision of Christ that thou dost see
Is my Visions Greatest Enemy" (William Blake)
It is important to go beyond the idea of an historical Jesus so that we can get to the real meaning of Christianity and the ancient wisdom. There is no hard proof of any works that were written when Jesus was supposed to be alive. God was supposed to have appear as a man 2,000 years ago, yet no one bothered to write a thing about it at the time! Paul (c.3-c.64-68AD) makes no mention of an historical Jesus, and if anyone was to do so you expect it to be Paul.
As Christianity was the religion for the Age of Pisces, it is not surprising that its origins are surrounded in mystery. Neptune, the ruler of Pisces, throws its mystifying veil over things. (An historical saviour is for the uninitiated masses, while the initiates know that the Christ is within.Christianity sowed confusion by losing the distinction between inner and outer teachings.)
Christian scriptures were based on the ancient wisdom, then the Christians destroyed the original manuscripts to hide the true origins of their creed.
Ignorance and a desire to pander to the masses by Christianity caused the ancient wisdom to be distorted. I would argue that this distortion had to occur to meet the requirements of the Age of Pisces. Faith and belief are features of Pisces. Christianity had to promote impossible events in order to activate faith and belief over reason.
Instead of interpreting the ancient mythos symbolically, the Christians took the mythos literally. They believed in a literal virgin birth, in the breaking of the laws of nature, in corpses coming to life, and so on.Tertullian said "I believe because it is impossible." It is faith, not reason, that can accept impossibilities.
The power of the divine essence within is a truly liberating concept. It means that humans are masters of their destiny and cannot be belittled when the truth is known. We have to realize our divine nature. This is a noble and uplifting task. Political Christianity was hell-bent on placing people in religious bondage, therefore they did their utmost to destroy the ancient truth.
Christianity introduced the concept of sin to disempower the general population, and the Church monopolized all religious power. Thanks to writers such as Massey and Kuhn we can now understand the awesome truth of the ancient wisdom and expose the deceits of repressive Christianity. It is now the time to let the true light shine, and dispel eighteen centuries of superstition, idolatry and murky gloom.
The Church of Rome ruled for over a thousand years. It was the Church which instigated the Dark Ages. We still have the legacy with us today in a totally distorted view of life.
The decisive change in the teachings was to banish the concept of the divine soul within all, and replace it with an historical figure called Jesus. People were taught to worship this non-existent Jesus instead of nurturing their own divine soul. In one fell swoop the Church of Rome took the divine out of everyday life and this world. It turned a philosophy of liberation into a religion ofrepression and bondage. Noble and uplifting teachings were turned upside down and thoroughly perverted.
Humans were turned into abject sinners who had to grovel for forgiveness. The true ancient wisdom can still be deciphered in the Bible, using the keys supplied by Kuhn to read the symbolism. Whatever strengths Christian concepts have, such as the death and rebirth of the god, they are due to its pagan roots. Despite Christian distortions, the underlying pagan philosophy has strong appeal at a subconscious level.
Man's ties to the divine natural order were torn asunder. For example, in 1023 King Canute made it illegal to "worship" the sun, moon, stars, tree, waterways and stones.The consequences were appalling. The inhumanity and brutality of the "Christian" Churches over the last 1800 years has been well documented: the inquisitions of torture and killing, the "witch" burnings, sexism and sex repression, destruction of indigenous people and their cultures, and support of harsh ruling elites. Also the supression of knowledge and the promotion of superstition. The Church put man out of balance, with his own divine nature and the divine cosmos all around.
"Greek mythology called it the union of Cupid and Psyche; in Egypt it was the embrace of Horus and Osiris; in Churchly language it is the marriage of the Bride and the Lamb. It was that welding at last in blissful harmony of the mortal and immortal elements. Of this ultimate union of male and female components, the body-soul with the spirit-soul, all marriage and sexual intercourse is only the outward sign and symbol.
"For its attainment the male and female natures in the individual must be 'married'; the centers below and those above the diaphragm must merge in interchange of activity.The wedding or welding of these two groups of energies will divinize human nature. For it will return man to his original androgyne state which obtained before the "fall" into physical generation, when he assumed the garb of the animal nature and put on the mask of personality."
In alchemy this process is called the chemical wedding, between the King (spirit) and the Queen (soul). Anna Kingsford in The Perfect Way writes of the marriage between the soul and spirit. Once the soul has become purified or virgin, union with the (holy) spirit produces the Christ within.
Matter is not evil
Christianity says our animal nature is evil and has to be punished. It says the flesh must be mortified. Many Eastern teachings also see the animal nature as being evil and they cultivate non attachment to the flesh and escape into a world of pure spirit. These views do not accord with the ancient wisdom.
"Then spirit must love matter, and matter spirit! Soul must love body and body soul! Man, intellectual and spiritual, must love the world of matter.
But realize that the birthright must be switched, the spiritual shall control the animal and not the other way around, Jacob must rule over Esau.
"Sin" is to be enslaved by matter and the animal nature, keeping the mind dwelling in the lower emotions, thus losing all sight of spiritual development. There is no inherent "badness" in matter and the animal nature.
Man must become the master of his animal nature if he is to progress.
Myths use symbolic language or allegory. Proclus stated that the creative mind, or Logos, has placed symbols throughout the world and implanted in souls the power to respond to these symbols. Nature around us and the heavens above speak to us in symbols. Symbols speak to our imagination and those parts of the psyche beyond left brain logic. Those who want to influence others, such as advertisers, know very well the power of symbols, and use them often.
The Church took away from the people the concept of the Christ as the god within, trying to hide it with literalism. A symbolic reading of the scriptures exposes the deceits of the Church and restores the liberating truth . Some examples follow.
The virgin birth.It's hard to believe that God would create a universe operating under reliable laws ( the only way to make a universe), then go ahead and break these laws to impress the masses like a conjurer on television or at a childs' party. The virgin birth is a case in point. It can be traced to ancient Egypt where Isis, the great Mother, found she was pregnant with Horus on August 23, the day the sun enters the zodiac sign of Virgo.
How apt to designate the "conception" of the divine soul in matter with this symbolism. Virgo, an earth sign, is represented as a young woman holding an ear of wheat. In Egypt Virgo was called the "house of bread"(Beth-lehem in Hebrew). The god, symbolized by bread, is "food" for mortals.The human body, once it has been refined by the divine soul, gives birth to the Christ.
Slaughter of the innocents. Sober reflection deems it impossible that Herod could have ordered the death of all male babes. As those of his friends and supporters would be included, it would be an act of political suicide. There is no historical evidence for such a slaughter, not even among the Talmud Rabbis who hated the memory of Herod.
There is a perfectly logical explanation. When the young, "innocent" divine soul comes into this world and the body it is under threat from the carnal nature.This event has been portrayed in many legends: as a babe Hercules was attacked by two serpents, which he destroyed; David fought the monster Goliath; St George and the dragon; Jack and the Giant. The alleged slaughter of the first- born in Egypt by order of the pharaoh was not historical, but another example of the same mythos.
The miracles are literalized spiritual myths and never objectively happened.
The raising of Lazarus is a retelling of the rebirth of Osiris. The name Lazarus was derived from "Osiris" . Osiris, dies and is reborn as Horus. Christ walking on the water symbolizes the divine soul has subdued the lower nature. Water commonly signifies the human passions/emotions. Turning water into wine means that the lower nature has been transmuted into the divine nature.
The fall. Any so called "fall" is that of the divine soul "falling" into matter. This is not a negative event but a necessary stage in cosmic evolution.Just as electricity needs a physical machine to realize its potential, the divine soul needs the human body as a vehicle for its realization on this earth. The divine soul had to leave its "Garden of Eden" or paradisiacal realm of existence in order to come to the earth. The "fall" of Adam and Eve is a crude patriarchal mythos, intended to justify sexism and repression.
Judas. A persistent theme of ancient religious writings is the two stages of the evolving god : incarnation and resurrection.This is reflected in the many twofold designations, such as Sut (or Set)-Horus, Horus the Elder-Horus the Younger, Cain-Abel, Jacob-Esau, and Judas-Jesus. As part of the ritual drama, the god is "betrayed" into entering matter.
Matter is the lowest level experienced by the god. After much struggle, the god is reborn to illuminate our earthly life.
Crucifixion and resurrection. The last twenty four hours of Christ can be well explained in terms of ritual drama. It is impossible for so many momentous events to have occurred in such a short time. The last supper, a walk to the Mount of Olives and return, a visit to Gethsemane and the various incidents that occurred, all in one night! Next day there are three trials, a verdict and the execution. The Gospels retell the ancient rituals of the incarnation and resurrection of the sun-god, in the sky and within the human form.
An effigy of Attis, the Christ of Western Asia, was tied to a tree then later burnt . Odin, a Norse god, was tied to a tree and wounded with a spear. Prometheus was chained to a rock on a Mount and tortured there. The Acts state twice that Christ was hung on a tree (5:30 ;13:29). Origen, an early Christian, says Christ was hung on a tree. Whether it is a tree, a rock or a wooden cross, the symbolism is quite clear: the god dies to enter matter.
The god rises in three days. Universally there is an initiatory period of three days. Jonah spent three days in the belly of a fish. It is common for the potential shaman to go on a vision quest for three days .Horus fought Set or Sut (matter) for three days.
Christmas, the birth of the sun god, is three days after the winter solstice. The importance of three days can be traced to the fact that this is the period when the moon is not visible, between the old moon and the new moon. The moon "dies" then is brought to life by the light of the sun. Three can also represent the three kingdoms of matter: mineral, vegetable and animal, the lowest levels experienced by the divine soul on the earth plane.
In the context of the ancient wisdom the battle of Armageddon is the conflict between our animal and divine natures, taking place in the individual. Throughout the ages seekers on the path have reported their dark nights of the soul, their temptations, and other struggles to realize the divine presence. The divine soul has a battle on its hands in order to win victory over the forces of darkness in order to illuminate our life. The pearl of great price is not handed to us on a plate, we have to pay our dues and show that we are worthy to receive it.
"What is the price of Experience? do men buy it for a song? Or wisdom for a dance in the street? No, it is bought with the price. Of all that a man hath, his house, his wife, his children. Wisdom is sold in the desolate market where none come to buy, And in the withered field where the farmer ploughs for bread in vain." (Vala or the Four Zoas)
Political Christianity got itself into a terrible muddle when it rejected the ancient wisdom. Instead of accepting the natural cycles of life and the cosmos, it saw time as a straight line. It could not accept natural change, so it proposed a cataclysmic "end of the world". Christ would then appear and the faithful flock would be saved. The misguided are still waiting for a "second coming".
The divine soul is ever coming.It can perpetually renew itself, entering the womb of matter, to be born again and again. We only have to look to nature to see that life continually renews itself: the life cycle of plants, the changing face of nature during the year and so on. Horus, the Egyptian Christ, says:"I am Horus, the Prince of Eternity". Jesus was with the Father before the foundation of the worlds. Horus calls himself "the persistent traveler on the highways of heaven,"and "the everlasting one."
Although it has been much distorted, the ancient wisdom is the foundation of Christianity. Christian holy days, such as Christmas and Easter, are based on the movements of heavenly bodies. These observances were taking place thousands of years before Christianity arrived on the scene. These days it is no secret that Christian festivals have a "pagan" origin.
Gross materialism has come to dominate society, causing mass alienation and blotting out awareness of higher values. Even mere infants are shamelessly exploited by advertisers and introduced to the consumer ethic by unwitting parents. Greed and selfishness have become the dominating values in society. Various social problems just keep multiplying, but attempted remedies don't get to the root of our problems.
But who will come to the rescue?
The Avatar of the Age of Aquarius is the Waterbearer. With one pitcher he catches the divine "waters of life", and with his other pitcher he pours out these waters to revive a thirsting humanity. Aquarius is the completed man, an age when humanity can reach its full potential . Currently we are in the death throes of the old age.
Aquarius and Uranus rule the spirit of youth that is akin to the Spirit of Rebellion. The coming of Uranus can be compared to a meeting between an extremely caffeinated and ticked-off Bruce Lee meeting an extremely hyper and histrionic Jackie Chan. As we can imagine, there won’t be much left of the furniture after they get through talking over their problems.
Uranus is the planetary ruler of the famous Fool card in the Tarot. The Fool represents the innocent, sensitive, vital mind that is ever receptive, unconditioned, mutable, and free.
A birth is always painful, but we must press on and transform this life with new vision. We are the Avatars of the new age. Pluto and Uranus are the ruling planets of Aquarius and the Electromagnetism (god) that is coming because of Pluto and Uranus brings about a change in human consciousness, that's what Aquarius brings, a different frequency of magnetism that changes logic circuits in the human brain.
The nature of Pluto is similar to that of the Hindu god Shiva. Pluto usually begins by breaking down a structure, then creates a new one in its place. The entire cycle of death, destruction and renovation is accompanied by tremendous powers, for Pluto is not a mild or even very subtle planetary influence. It brings decay at one level or another. It also rules the death and regeneration of the self, as old aspects of your life pass away. Pluto does not represent death in the literal sense, instead it refers to a metaphorical death, something that ceases to be - Robert Hand (Planets in Transit)
That Plutonic Shadow, the emissary of the Holy Spirit, has already been manifesting in the world and it will continue to do so for a decade or more. Its presence is the harbinger of truth and above all - Freedom.
Pluto's orbit of the zodiac takes approximately 250 years and as it comes back full circle to pass over and channel the energy of galactic center it enables all that is calcified and toxic to be exposed and removed. In the early part of 2007 the alignment will occur and the whole planet will feel the influences and ramifications.
The saber-rattling and war-mania of the world’s power-elites is but a subconscious fear-reaction to the inevitable approach of change, a desperate and futile attempt to offset the coming Plutonic storms that will demolish all that is infirm and toxic from the soul and from the world.
Yes, it is only the emotionally, morally, and spiritually toxic amongst us, the "People of the Lie," who have something to fear from the approach of Pluto's silver scythe. The rest can benefit from and even enjoy the healing that comes after the pestilence, the plague, and the offending virus has been eradicated. All we have to remember that is everything in our world is cleaned - our bodies our cars and our carpets. Only our emotions and psyche remain perpetually neglected and unhygienic. This is what the energy represented by Pluto comes in to correct. These are your two witnesses.
Mystification and confusion has been a feature of the Age of Pisces, with blind faith replacing reason. Neptune, ruler of Pisces, threw a veil over people's minds and blurred their vision. Uranus and Pluto, both ruling signs of Aquarius, is the Awakener. Aquarius is the sign of knowledge. Now is the time for a new awakening which will sweep aside the superstitions of the last 2,000 years.
Before we can make use of it in a positive way, before it will change our circuits, we must enrter within god's kingdom as much as possible in order to receive it. That's meditation in total darkness. God's secret place.
We are now in a position to reclaim the true meaning of the ancient wisdom. People will regain the lost wisdom and walk tall again, proud to live in the company of gods and goddesses, proud to play their pivotal role in the magnificent cosmic drama.
We must relight the lamp of truth and let it shine throughout the land. The darkest hour is just before the dawn. The people are crying out for light and new life. A new day is dawning! Uranus will burst asunder the clouds of darkness that engulf us , releasing the flow of the life giving waters of divine wisdom.The truth can be regained, and it will set you free!
Only those who make their body-vessel a Living Temple, they must "sacrifice our inner animals—our hormones, our lusts, our desires, our beastly compulsions" and this is exactly what is stated 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).
"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."
Paul taught: "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV). To the degree that 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”
With respect to the belief of the carnal believer in the physical resurrection of Jesus that is presented in the Gospels which allegorically portrays a spiritual meaning that is universal to all of mankind, the Church Father Origen wrote that this doctrine of a Literal physical resurrection was “preached in the Churches for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief” (Origen).
What man of sense will agree with the statement that the first, second and third days in which the evening is named and the morning, were without sun, moon and stars, and the first day without a heaven. What man is found such an idiot as to suppose that God planted trees in paradise in Eden, like a husbandman, and planted therein the tree of life, perceptible to the eyes and senses, which gave life to the eater thereof; and another tree which gave to the eater thereof a knowledge of good and evil? I believe that every man must hold these things for images, under which the hidden sense lies concealed” (Origen - Huet., Prigeniana, 167 Franck, p. 142).
Because this next level of birth is that of higher mind and is dependent upon the conscious expansion of mind and the expansion of mind evolves those spheres of mind that are beyond the vibration of the physical matter that comprises the brain and organic consciousness of the body-vessel those believers who Origen portrays above as "idiots", simply cannot progress beyond a very elementary level of understanding. Yet, unbelievers who are able to respond to greater truth when it is provided, have the potential that others who are not discerning do not.
Why did Paul portray the written text of the scriptures as the letter that killeth? Because they are an allegory and unless their spiritual attributes are understood and the Key of Knowledge that Jesus condemned the carnal Jews for throwing away is properly applied then your assumptions and conclusions which are based upon the literal text, will lead you in the wrong direction.
Thus it is written: "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death" (Prov 14:12 KJV). The Church Father Origen wrote that this doctrine of a physical resurrection was “preached in the Churches for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief”
Why? Because man's organic physical consciousness is limited in what can be understood and unless the next stages of birth are brought about which permits expansion of the mind, man's own higher soul and spiritual reality will remain inconceivable to his organic thinking and mindset.
One of the reasons that the scriptures are composed in a threefold allegorical form, is because all of the images we perceive in the outer world as previously presented are themselves an allegorical illusion that is an allusion which reflects back to us a condition and aspect of our own mind (see The great allegory of mind and matter)
And as the seeker begins to uncover the inner esoteric meaning of the threefold allegory of the scriptures by applying the Key of Knowledge to the written word, they will not only begin to open the inner door to the Kingdom which will bring about their transformation, but they will begin to perceive and understand the threefold meaning of the allegorical symbols that are presented to their senses in the outer world -thereby enabling them to escape the illusion of the "outer darkness" that Jesus warned about.
Relighting The Ancient LAMP of Truth
Myths express the deeper meanings of life and the cosmic drama. We need to move beyond the limited rationalist attitude which can only see a myth as an "invented story". Myths use symbolic language or allegory. Proclus stated that the creative mind, or Logos, has placed symbols throughout the world and implanted in souls the power to respond to these symbols. Nature around us and the heavens above speak to us in symbols. Symbols speak to our imagination and those parts of the psyche beyond left brain logic. Those who want to influence others, such as advertisers, know very well the power of symbols, and use them often.
Parable, allegory, dark sayings, mysteries, myth, that's your Bible that few know. it is veiled to those that are perishing.
Thus, to carnal man, ‘being born of the water’ is a dunking process. To spiritual man it is the rebirth of the inner self or soul. The carnal man never understands the parable and the allegory, to him that kind of language is of the devil, he wants things easy as in a literal reading, however the spiritual man sees the scriptures as pure spiritual science written as a language for the soul in allegorical fashion. The bible was written for latter type.
To a carnal man, the temple takes on an undue importance that overshadows other things. He sees it as an important place that he must go. He attends regularly to do work for his kindred dead, but does not realize that it is he himself who is found among the (spiritually) dead or that the work he does in the temple is more for his own benefit than for his ancestors. He speaks of the temple often, hangs pictures of it in his home, and gets angry when others do not show as much reverence for the building as he does.
Religious people, whether it be their own fault or the fault of their family and friends are not now, and may never understand the deeper truth of the ancient myths, of which the bible stories are, they are myths through and through, but they aren't fictions, they are stories designed to open up the right hemispheres of our brains, they are spiritual allegories, written in a an ancient language referred to as dark sayings, which is mythology.
Lets leave the gardens, talking snakes, talking donkeys, walking zombies, wars of the lord, literal heaven and hell etc... to the superstitious unenlightened m-asses.
Are we god's experiencing it's creation through the eyes of individual animal bodies?
"Now when God plays hide and pretends that he is you and I, he does it so well that it takes him a long time to remember where and how he hid himself. But that's the whole fun of it—just what he wanted to do. He doesn't want to find himself too quickly, for that would spoil the game. That is why it is so difficult for you and me to find out that we are God in disguise, pretending not to be himself. But when the game has gone on long enough, all of us will wake up, stop pretending, and remember that we are all one single Self—the God who is all that there is and who lives for ever and ever.
God is the Self of the world, but you can't see God for the same reason that, without a mirror, you can't see your own eyes, and you certainly can't bite your own teeth or look inside your head. Your self is that cleverly hidden because it is God hiding.
By Eric Dubay
The ancient Sufi teaching states that “God sleeps in the rock, dreams in the plant, stirs in the animal, and awakens in the man.” What if we replaced the word “God” with “The One Infinite Consciousness?” If God is defined as - an omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent intelligence – then God must exist inside all things, yet outside of all space, time, and matter. What has quantum physics (and honest introspection) shown exists inside all things, yet outside space, time, and matter? Consciousness.
Unless you actually think “God” is a bearded white man living in the clouds, perhaps replacing that word, as Einstein did, with something like “Cosmic Mind,” “Universal Being,” or “Infinite Consciousness” will help bridge the mental gap most Westerners seem to have between science and spirituality.
After I shook the dust of organized religion from my sandals, I learned that the link between big ‘ol God and little ‘ol me was no more and no less than consciousness. And each of us, at and as the very center of us, have this same feeling of I Am, for the not-so-obvious reason that each one of us is really God pretending to be each one of us. There is only one I Am, there is only one God, one Brahma, one Tao, one beingness, we both see the same world, because we both are the same world. But we have so cleverly and convincingly hidden ourselves from ourselves that we really believe that we are separate entities.” -Roger Stephens, “A Dangerous Book” (56)
Here's a parable, an analogy, which comes from India, from the Upanishads, and is thousands of years old. It presents a parabolic answer to the root question of all religion and philosophy (Who am I and what is this?), and does so in a way which everyone can relate to. In the beginning of the world (and though it probably had no ultimate "beginning" as we think of them, you have to start somewhere), there was only Brahma. Being all there was, and therefore totally known to himself, Brahma soon realized that this totality of awareness would eventually become extremely boring, after all, when you know everything there is to know, then there's no surprise, nothing to keep you interested.
It's like reading the same book for the seventy-eight millionth time. Anyway, since he was omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing), and omnipresent (all-everywhere), Brahma decided to create a diversion for himself, a way of introducing the elements of surprise, intrigue and drama into his experience. He thought, "What would it be like to forget who I really am?" So, he invented the game of cosmic hide-and-seek.
According to the rules of this game, Brahma would pretend to break pieces of himself off from the whole so that to all appearances they would seem separate. This is actually the meaning of christ breaking bread, it the cutting up of the divine essence into various packets of energy called Photons, which seek life forms to inhabit, and for it (the all consciousness) to be able to witness and experience it's creation, through the five senses of the animal.
That's the "hide" part. Then, as the apparently separate consciousness at the center of each of those apparently separate pieces, and through their apparently separate and unique perspectives, he would "seek" to rediscover who he really was, which was, of course, everything. Imagine seeing yourself from an infinite number of different perspectives, each one initially ignorant of its relationship to all the rest.
Imagine going to sleep and dreaming a different lifetime each night, each lasting for more or less years, each complete with the full range and variety of emotional life and death details. This is exactly what Andrew Raymond wrote in his book, secret of the sphinx, that god has played the game of hide and seek.
The divine spark/spiritual ego, nesting in your solar plexus at the sacrum chakra is god, jesus, lucifer, satan, the devil, the serpent kundalini and many other names, until you bring it forth up the spine and through the seven centers/chakras, you are spiritually dead, yes the LIGHT/PHOTON that you are is the animating principle for the animal body, come here to experience life and grow mentally to your highest potential.
To overcome the ego, gods adversary you must enter within yourself in meditation and decrease the ego/you, little by little a transformation of mind will take place. Then the ego will transform itself and become the god within. Until then it is satan with all of it's emotions, it's phony smiles and false masks, yes that's you the devil, living in the synagogue of satan, the first three chakras of the body.
WE are 666, we are the beast that must be divinized.
All physical life is made of Carbon, the soul is pure electromagnetism, the bible calls it spirit.
The basic carbon atom that makes up all physical life is the carbon 12 atom, and guess how many electrons, protons and neutrons it has?
It has 6 electrons, 6 protons and 6 neutrons. Coincidence? Synchronicity? or Divine plan?
We must become 888, Jesus in Greek
There is a woman (the higher mind) clothed with the Sun, with the Moon under her feet. Upon her head is a crown of 12 stars.' (Amos 12.1)
Revelations 12:1 A great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.
One who has learned to control the lunar forces within themselves, it is the emotions.
This is the MOON mind!!
The physical is under the control of the moon, but not the spiritual.
One who has learned to control the finer forces within themselves, it is the emotions.
These together form the microcosmic structure of the human body. The Sun represents the Higher Self/GOD/JESUS/THE SON OF MAN, and the Moon is a symbol of the Personality or lower ego mind.. Your task is to achieve the integration of the powers of these two triads whilst living in your physical body.
Who then is the woman clothed with the Sun? Clearly the 12 stars are the zodiac and the energy from these stars energising the 12 cranial nerves of your brain.
The Great Mother is symbolized by the Higher mind, received in the virgin consciousness of meditation. In the sky the Virgin in Pisces gives birth to the Monads as Stars, with the Solar and Lunar Selves.
It is the culmination and integration of your physical and spiritual forms.
And it is the meaning of the entire bible story.
God and Your Mind
Here is wisdom
THE KEY is that the method of operation is the seed and the harvest this is gods will and this is gods kingdom duet:17 matthew:6 mark:4:26 the kingdom of god is seed and harvest time, the law of progression the seed all the way to fruitation. the law of receiving eyes, ears, mouth speak out until the words are minted in your heart then planting seeds will bring harvest.
This is the kingdom of god. The seed is the soul/light that is imprisoned in these flesh pots of Egypt, that must come to fruition by transiting the seven layers of earth/chakras.
It is Life NOT DEATH, god is the ruler of life not the ruler of death, you will have according to your belief (subconscious mind).
Many stand outside at the door, but it is only the solitaries who will enter into the bridal chamber - (Jesus Christ's words as recorded in the Gospel of Thomas)
That means MEDITATION, this is the KEY!
