Who was Jesus?  Man, Myth or God?   Theologian Albert Schweitzer suggested that there will never be one answer to that question.   He said that looking for Jesus in history is like looking down a well: You see only your own reflection.  The “real” Jesus, Schweitzer says, will remain “a stranger and an enigma”.   While what Albert Schweitzer stated is true with respect to those who even imagine that they know who Jesus was by reading a book -- this day Schweitzer has been proven wrong.   Why?   How?   Because this day one who has in the more distant past authored one of the foundational primary Gospel accounts, is here to reveal to you the truth with respect to the nature and reality of these Gospel accounts that have remained an enigma for nearly 2000 years.    And most importantly, those who begin to properly apply the Key of Knowledge to both the scriptures, and then to the enigma of life itself, will be able to confirm the great truths that will be revealed herein.  

 

  A Confrontation With A Long Ignored Reality - Because they see only their own reflection -- or, the reflection of their own predetermined beliefs -- believers, their clergy and alleged scholars alike hold almost countless opinions as to the meaning of the scriptures.   Sadly, to their own detriment they overlook the most important part of the equation -- i.e., the scriptures are exactly what the original authors intended them to be.   And if we then pose the question: What are the implications of this fact?   While you may have read and even studied countless opinions of scriptural interpretation and commentary -- and you may have even undergone the formal study of the scriptures yourself -- but unless you understand how to apply what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge -- and unless you properly apply the Key of Knowledge in accord with the original intent and objectives which the authors composed these sacred writings -- then your assumptions about the meaning of the scriptures will amount to just one more of the infinite often meaningless opinions as to just what the scriptures mean. 

When Paul portrayed the baptized and committed Christians who he personally taught as incapable of comprehending man's higher soul and spiritual reality because they were of a "natural" and of an "animal-soul" level of being (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature ) -- he confirmed the important reason why the Gospels are parables within the framework of a larger body of parables: "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it. But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34 NKJV -- see below: In The House - Taught In Parables - The Key Of Knowledge).   What is a parable within a larger parable framework?  A parable portrays essential higher truths at a variable level of understanding so they can be understood at the level of the person reading or hearing the parable -- and as the level of the reader or hearer begins to evolve, greater truths are perceived and understood.   A parable within a parable presents universal parabolic truths within short presentations that must be understood in order to begin to comprehend the higher truths of the parabolic whole.  

This parabolic framework is necessary, because mankind who is at an "animal-soul" level of consciousness is incapable of comprehending man's higher soul and spiritual reality.  And because of the Laws of Creation, the Spiritual Visionary and Mystic understands that they cannot do the impossible -- what neither Jesus, Paul or any of the biblical authors were capable of doing -- which is to convey the higher reality of the Soul and the Kingdom, to mankind in his "natural" and/or "animal-soul" level of being.   In the same way that an infant cannot do and accomplish what an adult can, neither can man in his organic condition of mind comprehend what can only be understood by those who have embraced the process of evolving the mind into a condition of highly developed and refined spiritual maturity.  And when rightly understood, this world which is portrayed as the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son, is a three-dimensional shadow-world (see OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ) to those who in the manner of the example of those who had yet to bring about the transformation of the physical body and mind, refuse to make the change within themselves necessary to prove the Truth by travailing in TheWay.  The Law is that only those who are themselves spiritual, can receive the higher spiritual knowledge.   The mystic and spiritual visionary who must be understood as spiritual scientists and seekers of Ultimate Truth, have long attempted to explain to "natural" organic man that in order to see and comprehend the higher reality that the mystic perceives, the seeker must themselves bring about the same developmental changes within their body and mind.  At the foregoing link I explain that this realm is a three-dimensional image of a higher twelve-dimensional reality -- which is why it is portrayed by mystics as a shadow-world of illusions.  And BY DESIGN, the only means that you or any other of the lost prodigal sons have to prove the truth, is to bring about the necessary changes within yourself to prevail over the human limitations which Paul portrays as "natural" and of an "animal-soul" level of being (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature ).   In the same way that you can't enroll an infant in a university, if you desire to Know the Truth, then you must make the necessary changes and transformation within your own mind and being that permits you to Know the Truth -- and  like the infant who can't comprehend at a university level, this is BY DIVINE DESIGN.  In the parable of the Sower And The Seed, this necessary environment of purified and refined body and mind is portrayed as the "good ground".    And in the same way that when man provides the proper purified and refined foundational environment within one's own body and mind, each person possesses the innate ability to Know the Truth of all Truths -- and the only requirement is for them to begin to live the Truth that has been revealed to them in word, thought, desire and deed.   In the below I will demonstrate the reality of the statement in the Wycliffe Bible Commentary that only the sincere disciple could be: “...instructed in the esoteric teaching... which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”. And the fact that you may be an acknowledged genus from the perspective of man's modern academia, means absolutely nothing with respect to your ability to comprehend the true spiritual meaning of the scriptures.   And the problem is not only one of comprehension, but also the fact that the scriptures are composed and written in a spiritual language that the seeker or student of the scriptures can only learn from inner spiritual Sources that are largely incomprehensible from the perspective of modern academia.

  Innate Knowledge Of The Truth Of All Truths: Every person who is alive today -- and has ever lived and walked the face of the earth -- possesses the innate ability to prove the Truth of all Truths -- within their own mind and being.   Therefore, ultimately, no one has an excuse for not knowing the Truth of all Truths -- and following others in the wrong direction.   In the same way that the faith-based followers of Jim Jones were seduced into following their leader through the gates of tragic and absurd evil, the same is true of the intellectuals who preside over the halls of modern academia.   In the same way that entry-level requirements exist for virtually every one of life's endeavors, this is also true of the individual person's approach to studying and understanding the scriptures, as well as the higher purpose and realities of Life.   And in clarification, I am not at all insinuating that everyone has the ability to believe the truth -- or to read the truth out of some book -- or to be taught the truth in any of the ways that mankind teaches or conveys opinions and human knowledge -- but rather, every person has the innate ability to Know the Truth by virtue of their becoming a Direct Expression and embodiment of the Truth through their own Experiential connection with the Source of all Truths.   And it is the development of this Innate Ability that was the objective of the authors of the scriptures.   So much so, that it was for this reason that Paul wrote and warned that everyone is ultimately responsible for Knowing the Truth of All Truths (Rom 1:19-20 and The Sacred Language Of Creation).    As Paul wrote and warned, no one has an excuse for not Knowing the Truth of all Truths -- and they will be ultimately held accountable for their desire to seek and learn the Truth of all Truths.   Further, the only real obstacle to knowing the Truth, is man's own ignorance of their True-Self -- and their True-Self's relationship to Creator-God.   Which is why the Gospel of Thomas proclaims: "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty...".    Therefore, the only obstacle to Knowing and becoming the Living Embodiment of the Truth, is Self Ignorance. 

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

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

If what Paul and the other Gospel Authors stated is true, and there exist higher realities and dimensions of being that are totally inconceivable to the mind of the undeveloped faith-based believer (see Mysteries Of The Gospel ) -- and by virtue of the immaturity of the faith-based believers brought about by an embryonic condition of mind which Paul portrayed as the "natural" mind of man -- and the limitations of this embryonic condition of mind even inhibited Jesus from conveying the true meaning of the scriptures, and the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom to all but his inner core of disciples (see In The House - Taught In Parables) -- which means that the biblical authors were therefore powerless to explain in and detail and depth many of the most important Gospel teachings and concepts in the literal text of the New Testament -- then the spiritually mature author's of the scriptures who were themselves enlightened to these higher realities, remained virtually powerless to do anything more than to provide the people with a list of do's and don'ts -- so that the faith-based believers will be in a position where they will be better able to evolve to a mature understanding and comprehension of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.   To totally ignore these do's and don'ts, without knowing the consequence of one's choices and actions, is paramount to walking out onto a freeway blindfolded.  

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?   The Flawed Doctrine Of Perpetual Redemption totally ignores the many statements by Paul where he warns: "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).   Why did Paul make such a statement?   Because the original Gospel teachings in their original form was one of spiritual transformation -- a process that would evolve the mind of the seeker/disciple from their embryonic infantile condition, to that of higher spiritual maturity and Wholeness.  Those who reject these teachings and fall back into the thinking and lifestyle of this world -- who willfully sin after coming to the knowledge of the Gospel message -- are not only unbelievers and apostates to the teachings of the Gospels, but in Paul's words these counterfeit believers crucify the Son of God afresh.  And, in total opposition to what is preached in the modern Churches, Paul warns that "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."   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 (see http://BibleCorruption.com ) 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 (see http://TheTenWords.com ) -- 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 exiled 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).    Because the Christians entered into a covenant with Pagan Rome -- installing the emperor who was not even baptized, as the head of the Church -- and in a state of absolute arrogance, hunted down and murdered all sincere spiritual Christians and original Ebionite Nazirenes who did not accept the religious doctrines of the emperor -- even editing and corrupting the very words of God spoken to mankind -- the Church has not only been "cut off" -- but the Christians themselves dwell in a Spiritual Diaspora under the cloud of spiritual ignorance. 

I always found it truly amazing that readers of the scriptures could read the words of Paul where he states that the "natural" mind of the Christians who he had himself taught, would reject the truths pertaining to the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom as utter "foolishness" -- portraying himself as an "ambassador in bonds" who was unable to speak plainly.   And from this perspective, the best that Paul could do for those who he portrayed as entry-level Christians who were "babes in Christ", was to provide them a series of do's and don'ts that would assist them in evolving through the stages of spiritual immaturity that made it impossible for them to comprehend the True Gospel Meaning and Objectives.   And then, these same people who call themselves believers, ignore the very core Gospel teachings to their own demise (see The Lie).

 

  In The Words Of Hillary Clinton: What Difference Does It Make?   "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, to him I will give of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:17) -- and Spiritual Manna which is Spiritual Knowledge, can only be imparted to man directly by God -- and can only be received by those who "overcome", and are prepared to receive it.   The Greek word for this secret spiritual knowledge that can only be imparted directly from God to those who are prepared to receive it, is called "Gnosis" -- aka Spiritual Manna.   Paul correctly stated that the faith-based Christians who are totally versed in what he called the (historical) "traditions of Jesus and him crucified", were too carnal to receive the Spiritual Manna or Gnosis.   Paul portrayed the baptized and committed Christians as still being of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness who were incapable of receiving the Divine Manna or Gnosis.   And this reality is expressed in the meaning of the Greek text of Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians (2:14) where Paul states that the "natural" organic man cannot comprehend the higher reality of the Soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom.   Which profound statement provokes the question: What is meant by the term that Paul used when he described the very people who he had himself taught who were incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom when he portrayed them as being of a "natural" organic level of mind and consciousness?   The Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary writes with respect to the meaning of the word in the original Greek language: "natural man—literally, 'a man of animal soul'."  Further,  the Treasury Of Scriptural Knowledge states of this ignored and profound statement at 1 Cor 2:14 which reads (quoting Paul): "But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" -- wherein the proper interpretative-meaning of Paul's words with respect to the reality of what is portrayed by Paul as the natural man is then presented: [Psuchikos,] the animal man, one who lives in a natural state, and under the influence of his animal passions; for [psuche] means the inferior and sensual part of man, in opposition to the [nous] understanding, or [pneuma,] the spirit. And this is not only true -- but is is a fact of life that all mystics and enlightened souls must deal with when interacting with organic man.   Which is exactly why Paul profoundly stated to the very people who he had personally taught the Gospel message: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ).   Stating to the body of confirmed and baptized believers who he stated had received all truth and knowledge pertaining to the elementary "traditions" of Christ: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ). 

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

The authors of the scriptures were Spiritual Seekers in search of Spiritual Knowledge -- i.e., Gnosis or what can be defined as the Sacred Knowledge or the Divine Manna revealed directly from God to the Seeker of the Truth and the Kingdom.   Gnosis has absolutely nothing to do with an historical people who were portrayed as Gnostics.   There is no formal Church or secret order that can reveal Gnosis.   Contrary to popular opinion, the term Gnostic does not in any manner denote an alternative historical tradition which the Church suppressed.   Gnosis  is not a set of dogmatic beliefs -- or any phenomena pertaining to this world.   In fact, all genuine scriptures are Gnostic at their core -- i.e., Matthew, Mark, Luke and John -- and the whole foundation of the esoteric knowledge concealed within the body of the scriptures, deals entirely with the Forces and Laws that control the Consciousness of Man, and Cosmology of the seekers own Mind and Being.   But even more important is the fact that this body of knowledge exists no where else -- i.e., it is totally absent from our modern colleges and universities -- and therefore, it is impossible to teach Gnosis in a university or seminary.   The very existence and  reality of True Gnosis in fact remains an enigma to virtually all of man's religions and philosophical systems today.   Therefore, it is impossible to read and study that body of Knowledge which can be defined as Gnosis in any of the books written by man   To the degree that Gnosis cannot be researched or studied in even the greatest of man's libraries.   And yet, it is the most important body of knowledge that man could possibly possess.   To the degree that the Gospel of Thomas declares: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".   And while it is true that this esoteric body of knowledge lies concealed within the textual cloak of the scriptures, it remains an unseen and camouflaged enigma to the eyes and understanding of the vast majority of mankind who gaze into the textual-body of the scriptures, and who see only the reflection of their own beliefs and/or condition of mind reflected back to them.    Which means that if we pose the question: What Difference Does It Make?   It makes all the difference in the world!!!  

  The Audacity Of Abject Ignorance: After reading the foregoing where the biblical authors warn that it is impossible for a man of a "natural" human consciousness to read the literal text of the scriptures and discern the truth, and understand the inner spiritual meaning of the written word, every SINCERE Christian should want to know why Paul warned that it was impossible for the baptized and confirmed Christians to understand the true meaning of the scriptures, and why these same baptized and confirmed Christians would reject the higher knowledge of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom as utter "foolishness"?   This is not a reality that the intelligent and conscientious seeker can just skim over and ignore.   Further, that the body of Bible readers are warned that whatever is written in the text possesses a deeper unseen meaning that is incomprehensible from a "natural" human perspective, also simply skipped over and ignored by the vast majority of faith-based believers.   Which is why Paul warns that you cannot simply read the written word of the scriptuers and discern the higher truth of the Gospel -- even portraying the literal text of the scriptures as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).   Yet, the vast majority of Christians throughout history have chosen to totally ignore this warning -- to the degree that the Christian world has come to embody the reality portrayed in the very words of Jesus when he was asked why he only spoke to the multitudes in parables, and stated: “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12 NIV).   Which reality of imposed deafness, blindness and barrier to understanding prompted the Wycliffe Bible Commentary to write that: “…the initiate was instructed in the esoteric teaching... which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”    With the far-reaching implications embodied in the reality that "...spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”.  

What is clear is the fact that neither Jesus or Paul could speak plainly to the people they taught.  Jesus went as far as stating that the  "...secret of the kingdom of God" only belonged to his select few disciples who had left home and totally abandoned the ways of this world -- which embodied the meaning and condition of mind portrayed in the word Ebionite, meaning the "poor-ones" -- and followed Jesus daily.   Allegorically, in the greater parbolic foundation of the scriptures, each of the cities and villages that Jesus and his disciples are portrayed as entering -- teaching and healing the people by restoring them to Wholeness -- corresponds to the centers of the seeker's own mind that must be evolved and transformed.   But this is only understood by the few who themselves travail in TheWay, and strive to bring about their own threefold (physical, mental and spiritual) transformation that enables them to evolve beyond the "animal-soul" level of organic man.  

Paul portrayed the faith-based Christians as "babes in Christ" who were only capable of receiving the "milk" of the Gospel because they were still "natural" organic men who was said to be of an "animal-soul" level of spiritual immaturity.    Which provokes the question: What makes the modern person -- and even the modern believer -- any different than the baptized believers who Paul personally instructed and taught?   Sadly, the only answer is: Absolutely Nothing!   In the same way that Paul warned that because of the immature condition of mind that he portrayed as still being of a "natural" (human) consciousness, the Christians who he personally instructed into the "traditions" of the Christ, were only capable of receiving the "milk" of the Gospel -- and would reject the higher knowledge of the Gospel as utter "foolishness" if he was to dare to even speak of man's higher soul and spiritual reality.   Why?   Because in the same way that an infant does not possess the developed facilities of mind to comprehend at a university graduate level, neither does "natural" organic man possess the necessary facilities of mind to comprehend either the spiritual meaning of the scriptures, or the higher reality of their own Soul.  And this inability of those who Paul portrayed as "natural" organic man to comprehend the higher knowledge of the soul and spirit was referenced by the 2nd century Bishop Clement of Alexandria in the profound statement: “The Lord… allowed us to communicate to those Divine Mysteries, and of that holy light, to those who are able to receive them. He did not certainly disclose to the many what did not belong to the many; but to the few to whom He knew that they belonged, who were capable of receiving and being molded according to them”.  

That the higher spiritual knowledge and meaning of the Gospel could only be received by those who had properly purified and prepared themselves to receive this higher knowledge, was presented in the words of the Church Father Origen when he explained: “Whoever has clean hands, and therefore lifts up holy hands to God… let him come to us… Whoever is pure, not only from all defilement, but from what are regarded as lesser transgressions, let him be boldly initiated into the mysteries of Jesus, which properly are made known only to the holy and the pure… To those who have been purified in heart, he whose soul has for a long time, been conscious of no evil, especially since he yielded himself to the healing of the Word, let such a one hear the doctrines which were spoken in private by Jesus to his genuine disciples”.   Which provokes the all-important question: How does a person become spiritual?   The long ignored answer is that there are no shortcuts or dispensations --  and that the only means to fulfill the requirement which brings about the transformation of the seeker is for them to live and sincerely embrace the Original Gospel Teachings in word, thought, desire and deed.   With the bottom line being that to Possess the Truth, one must surrender and themselves become Possessed by the Truth -- and the Truth, alone.   And until the seeker/disciple begins to bring this transformative condition about in their daily lives, they will remain deaf, dumb and blind to both the true meaning of the scriptures, as well as the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God.   Which is confirmed by the Apostle in the words: “Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to naught” (1 Cor 2:6 KJV).   Throughout all of Christian history, the body of believers who Paul portrayed as too "carnal" to receive and understand the higher knowledge of the spirit, have been unable to understand the Apostle's words when he wrote: “But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away” (1 Cor 13:10 KJV). The dilemma is that if a Christian fails to go beyond the milk of the gospel, “that which is perfect” can never come. The carnal believer never embraces the words: “That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Tim 3:17 KJV).

As stated in the above, while the word Gnosis portrays a type of Knowledge, it in no way means the knowledge of this world that can be taught by other men, written in books, or received from any other Source than directly from God.   Under the heading of Gnosticism, the Encyclopedia Britannica states: “Among the majority of the followers of the movement, 'Gnosis' was understood not as meaning 'knowledge' or 'understanding', in our sense of the word, but 'revelation'. These little Gnostic sects and groups all lived in the conviction that they possessed a secret and mysterious knowledge, in no way accessible to those outside, which was not to be proved or propagated, but believed in by the initiated, and anxiously guarded as a secret. This knowledge of theirs was not based on reflection, on scientific inquiry and proof, but on revelation. It was derived directly from the times of primitive Christianity, from the Savior himself and from his disciples and friends, with whom they claimed to be connected by a secret tradition, or else from later prophets, of whom many sects boasted. It was laid down in wonderful mystic writings, which were in the possession of the various circles”.   Those Christians who had prepared themselves to receive the Higher Knowledge imparted directly to them by the Logos, must be understood as the Christians who Paul portrayed as having gone beyond the "milk" of the Gospel, and were able to receive the "solid food" from Spirit -- i.e., “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit” (1 Cor 2:10 KJV).   

Regarding these two groups of Christians -- i.e., the faith-based entry-level Christians who could only be given what Paul called the "testimony" of Christ- - and the mature Christians who were no longer in need of the "milk" of the Gospel intended to nourish "babes in Christ", Smith and Wace's Dictionary of Christian Biography states: “We have no reason to think that the earliest Gnostics intended to found sects separated from the Church and called after their own names. Their disciples were to be Christians, elevated above the rest as acquainted with deeper mysteries, and called Gnostikoi because possessed of a Gnosis superior to the simple faith of the multitude… They also boasted to be in possession of genuine apostolical traditions, deriving their doctrines, some from St. Paul, others from St. Peter, and others again from Judas, Thomas, Philip, and Matthew. In addition moreover, to [this] secret doctrine which they professed to have received by oral tradition, they appealed also to alleged writings of the apostles themselves or their disciples”.  Which, while ignored by the faith-based Christians, is confirmed in the ignored words of Jesus when he was asked by his disciples why he ONLY spoke to the multitudes in parables: “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12 NIV).

The disciples and original Ebionite Nazirene followers of Jesus understood that they could know and possess all the Spiritual Knowledge (Gnosis) that Jesus possessed -- and they were able to do all the works that Jesus did -- because he was a man just as they were.   The original Gospels taught that Jesus was a holy man who became At-One with the Indwelling Logos -- with the voice of the Father saying to mankind at the baptism in the Jordan: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee" (see TheTenWords.com ).  But these words of God that were spoken as much about Jesus as they were about all of mankind -- and in reference to Jesus becoming the Son of God at his baptism in the Jordan -- was changed and corrupted in the fourth century.   To even suggest as the Church has done, that the very disciples who walked with Jesus daily -- talked with him daily -- the disciple who Jesus personally taught about God and both his and their relationship to the Father -- those who Jesus said were a witness to the Truth and TheWay -- that these same disciples (in the words of the later Church leaders) were too ignorant, or too Jewish, to understand what Jesus taught -- must be representative of the greatest religious fraud and deception known to man.    And yet, regardless of the facts, this same fraud and deception continues to be preached from the pulpits of most Churches -- spiritually disenfranchising the Christian world to this very day!!!  

Contrary to what the later deception which the Church of Rome promoted, the Gospels emphatically state that these same disciples were representative of a witness to the Truth and TheWay that Jesus taught -- and to even suggest that they were themselves too ignorant, or too Jewish to understand these teachings, is representative of the greatest religious hoax that has ever been perpetuated upon mankind.    The Book of Acts testifies to the fact that Jesus further instructed the disciples through the Holy Spirit -- i.e., "after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen" (Acts 1:2-3 NIV).   And these same disciples witnessed to the fact that "God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him" (Acts 10:38 NIV).   They portrayed Jesus as "...a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst" (Acts 2:22 NKJV).   But in the fourth century the segment of the Church who entered into a covenant relationship with the Pagan Emperor Constantine not only rejected the witness of the disciples who personally knew Jesus, that he was a man who was Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by God -- but they changed the very words of God spoken to mankind -- i.e., "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee".

What these original Ten Words spoken by the Father to mankind presented, was that the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus remained totally faithful to the Gospel teachings.   If, as the very words of God spoken to mankind stated, that Jesus became the Messiah (Anointed) and Son of God by living the necessary Consecrated Life that enabled him to fulfill the Law within himself, then the truth of the Gospel is found in the witness of the Ebionites who held firmly to the position that Jesus "...was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ" see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).   With the true objective of the original teachings presented in the words of Hippolytus where he stated that the original Ebionite Nazirenes "...assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).   Which means that every man and woman who walks the face of the earth has the same potential as their elder brother Jesus -- if the Gospel teachings of TheWay are intimately embraced and followed to their spiritual conclusion.

When the Ebionite Nazirenes  make reference to the Law, this very much includes the Laws of Creation as portrayed in the words "...the designs/laws found throughout Nature and all of Creation".    That the historical man Jesus was a pattern for all of mankind because of his success in overcoming the Laws, is demonstrated in the words: "He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ..."   And this confirms this statement with respect to the true potential of all of mankind that Jesus taught, as demonstrated in the words of Hippolytus when he wrote that they believed that when anyone "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs" (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34 - see http://Ebionite.com ).   And this is why Jesus taught that he was our brother -- i.e., "Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17 NIV).   

When the scriptures portray the need to fulfill the Law, it is not the allegorically portrayed Law presented in the Torah and Old Testament scriptures -- but rather, the Law that evolves our mind and consciousness which enables us to attain Spiritual Maturity.   All of Creation is moved and controlled by Laws.   When a sperm and ovum are united to form an embryo -- and that embryo begins to evolve into a fetus and infant -- it is the Natural Laws that brings about the necessary development that forms the living body that is able to accommodate the mind of man.   When mankind emerges from the womb of its mother, man enters what can be portrayed as the womb of mother-earth -- and this secondary womb provides the environment for the mind of man to develop and mature.   BUT, while the formation of a physical body is completed in accord with the universal requirements of mankind -- in the development of mind the very process requires the person to make choices in their lives.   Where the formation of the body can be portrayed as robotic, this is not the case in the formation of the mind that must be built level upon level of comprehension.   And while The Law functioning within our mind has the potential to evolve each of us to the zenith of comprehension, true development can only be brought about when man has the ability to make choices, and then learn from the choices he has made.   And it is the Natural Laws functioning within each of us that is the controlling factor of our development -- and the catalysts for the controlling factor of the Laws working within us, is based upon the choices we make as set forth in the subheading The Living Bio-Feedback Organism that molds and interacts with us, step by step, in accord with the choices we make throughout every aspect of the life we are living   And while what is referred to as the Law or Torah of God has been set forth in the written text of the scriptures, what is presented is an allegorical portrayal of the Laws and Forces of Mind and Consciousness within the spectrum of the Cosmology of Mind and Being.   And that what is presented in the literal text of the scriptures is allegorical, is why Paul portrayed the written text of the scriptures as "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).  And it is the Higher Law that is spiritual and allegorically portrayed, that the historical man Jesus fulfilled within himself to become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) and move into a state of At-Oneness with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God. That the historical Jesus was a true holy man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Royal Law within himself, is attested to at Acts 2:22 where Jesus is portrayed as "a man, attested to you by God" -- and this was demonstrated by God performing "mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst".   If Jesus was himself God incarnate as believed by the later Romans, then these words portraying Jesus as a man approved by God through the works and wonders that God did through him, never would have been presented in this manner.  

  Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple: When the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples and followers of Jesus expressed the need to fulfill the Law, it was not the literal allegorical text of the Torah which is observed in outward ritual and tradition in the manner of the Jews that was being made reference to -- but rather, the Universal Law of Mind and Spirit that is allegorically presented and functioning within each and every one of us.   Therefore, when the Ebionite Nazirene were portrayed as being Torah Observant, the Law was therefore observed in the exact manner that Jesus said was necessary -- i.e., "The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you--they are full of the Spirit and life" (John 6:63).  
The early Church writer Epiphanius wrote that the Ebionites "do not accept Moses' Pentateuch in its entirety; certain sayings they reject... stating Christ has revealed this to me, and will blaspheme most of the legislation" (Panarion 30.18.7-9).   For them to be accused of "blaspheming most of the legislation",  means that they did not at all observe the Torah outwardly in accordance with the letter of the written word in the manner of the Jews -- but rather, they understood the allegorical symbolism that was applicable to unlocking the inner door to the Kingdom.  

In recognition of the existence of man's lower animal nature that not only rules over man's consciousness, but in the words of Paul presented above limits his comprehension and development, it is important to understand man's motivation to perform animal sacrifice as a part of his religion.  Which provokes the question: Did God in the Old Testament require animal sacrifice? Lets begin my answer to this question by quoting the words of Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, where he writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”
When understood from the perspective of the original authors of the scriptures, what is presented in the scriptures is a blueprint of the seekers own mind -- the levels and forces of consciousness -- and the Laws that control every aspect of the person's life.  And while the scriptures may appear as historical accounts, this is merely the facade that enables the authors to present the inner spiritual meaning which portrays the mental development and spiritual events in the life of the seeker in search of Higher Truth.   Which raises the question: Why would the scriptures contain (allegorical) fabricated "...stories which is repugnant to both reason and common sense" -- which I might also add was why Paul portrayed these stories as the "letter that killeth" [and] "Jewish fables" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).  Why?  The answer goes to the core of our own holographic reality -- and the fact that whatever we perceive in the outer world, is merely a reflection of the inner reality of our own mind and being.  And that primitive man the world over is often observed performing animal sacrifice, is because he is externalizing his own animal nature which he perceives in the outer world.  Innately he senses that his own animal nature must be transformed -- and so, he engages in the (outward) ritual of animal sacrifice -- doing outwardly, what he must accomplish within himself. Quoting from http://TheConsecratedLife.com :


And when AskMoses.com states that we must sacrifice our inner animals, is this any different than the teachings of Jesus in the Gospel of the Nazirenes: "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."
Only those who make their body-vessel a Living Temple -- and in the words of AskMoses.com, they must "...sacrifice our inner animals—our hormones, our lusts, our desires, our beastly compulsions" -- and is this any different than the words of Paul when he commanded the Gentiles to "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV)? Or the requirement that “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV): Which means that we must transform the beastly predator of carnal man's lower nature, into an unblemished perfect lamb that is a fit sacrifice on the altar of our Inner Living Temple.   And this state of required purity and consecration 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).
It is important to recognize that under the Law of Moses, the Jews were ONLY permitted to perform animal sacrifice in ONE place -- i.e., the Jerusalem Temple.  And when it is understood that the temple in Jerusalem was an allegorical portrayal of the Living Temple that the seeker/disciple must transform in their own body-vessel (see The Living Temple), then it is their understanding that it is their own lower animal nature that must be raised up as an unspotted lamb, and sacrificed on the altar of their own transformed body-temple. Which is why the literal text of the Old Testament is portrayed as the "letter that killeth" when the Jews fail to understand the spiritual meaning of the allegorical text, and apply what Jesus call the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ) -- turning the scriptures within their own consciousness, mind and being.  Yet, the message and meaning is of the utmost importance.


As explained above (What Difference Does It Make), man is of the fourth kingdom -- with the lower three kingdoms of mineral, vegetable and animal as part of his earthly consciousness.  That man's lower animal nature in many instances rules and controls his consciousness and being (see Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature), which is the cause of much of the violence and brutality in the world.  And because we fail to comprehend the Cosmology of Mind and Being ( http://SoulSelf.org ), and remain ignorant of the fact that in many people what we have is the beast walking in the forum of man, there are countless elements within our modern culture that actually causes and supports the beast in man to prevail in our society.  Further, Paul emphatically warns that Christians and Jews who remain at the level of what he portrays as of a "natural" organic human consciousness, are incapable of comprehending either the higher reality of the Soul, or the true spiritual meaning of the scriptures, because as Paul asserts the faith-based believers of a "natural" mind are of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness and understanding (see What Difference Does It Make) -- and therefore remain totally carnal and earth-bound in their thinking because they are ruled over by their lower animal nature.

The heathen and pagan mind of the mainstream of Gentiles always had great difficulty in understanding the difference between the man Jesus, the Indwelling Logos/Son of God which is representative of the Mind of God (see The Logos), and the One Teacher which Jesus commanded all who would call themselves his disciples and followers, were to seek out and learn from (see The True Prophet).   And it was the living of the necessary Consecrated Life that Jesus ordained, and the seeking of the Kingdom within, that enabled the historical Jesus to become the Messiah, and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.   And this is especially demonstrated in the words of Edward Gibbon with respect to the original position of the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus that he was in “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366).   

The historical and spiritual factualness of these words can be proven when one understands the original words that were spoken to the man Jesus at his baptism in the Jordan River -- when the Voice of God stated: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee" -- which means that the historical man Jesus was a man who became the Messiah/Christ when he overcame the Laws and became Anointed by God.    That the later Church of Rome which existed as a puppet under the pagan sun worshipping Emperor Constantine, censored and changed the very words of God spoken to mankind, is the primary reason why the Christian world remains shackled to the abyss of spiritual ignorance to this very day.    In the article The Ten Words,  it will be demonstrated that all the pre-Nicene Christian authors who quoted the baptism sequence in their copies of the Gospels, confirmed that prior to the fourth century editing of the scriptures by Pagan Rome, that the Gospels confirmed that Jesus was a holy man who became the Lord's Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling and overcoming the Laws.    Moreover, in addition to the six (6) pre-Nicene Christian authors who are cited in The Ten Words, this fact is further confirmed in the more ancient surviving biblical texts that modern translators continue to ignore to the spiritual pearl of the Christian world today.     That the modern Church continues to reject the very words of God spoken to mankind, in favor of the censored and corrupted words of the fourth century Emperor of Pagan Rome, is the reason why the modern Church which has caused itself to be spiritually flat-lined, only possesses what Paul portrayed as the "elementary" doctrines that the Church Father Origen defined as being “...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”  (see Origen, Contra Celsum). 

If the original Gospels and the witness of the original disciples and followers of Jesus is true -- and the objective of the original teachings is to bring about a condition of mental and spiritual maturity -- thereby enabling each follower of TheWay to become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ -- then it can be stated that the modern Church dogma has virtually little in common with the original teachings of TheWay.   The difference being whether Jesus was a holy man who became At-One with the Indwelling Logos (aka Son of God/True Prophet), or whether the Church of Constantine was correct in their assertion that Jesus was God-Incarnate?   The Adam Clark Commentary with regard to the passage at Hebrews 1:5 where Paul quotes the original Gospel statement that the Father said of Jesus: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee"  Where the Adam Clark Commentary states: “This most important use of this saying has passed unnoticed by almost every Christian writer which I have seen; and yet it lies here at the foundation of all the apostle's proofs. If Jesus was not thus the Son of God, the whole Christian system is vain and baseless:..."   If the original Gospels are correct -- which teaching was confirmed by the original (Ebionite/Nazirene) disciples and followers of Jesus -- that he was a Holy Man who became At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God who was portrayed as The True Prophet, then the whole focus of the modern Church dogma is indeed "...vain and baseless".

  The Corrupting Factor Of All Religions:  There will never be One True Religion, because while all genuine religions begin and start their sojourn in the world as Truth, they quickly become corrupted by the counterfeit clergy and secular authorities who hijack the religion, and make it into a system to maintain power and authority over the masses.   As an example: While the Original Gospel teachings of Jesus known as TheWay can easily be demonstrated to be a Universal Truth, the Original teachings remain unknown today -- and would be portrayed as heresy by the modern Church.  

Throughout all the scriptures of mankind there are many statements pertaining to the teaching that God knows the thoughts of the heart -- and it is these thoughts of the heart that is the requirement to receive Spiritual Knowledge (aka Divine Manna and Gnosis) directly from the Logos (aka Son of God, Teacher of Righteousness and True Prophet).    The problem is that no sooner are pure religious teachings and truths presented to mankind, than they are just as quickly corrupted.   Christianity came into existence in order to correct the corruptions of Judaism -- Islam came into existence to correct the corruptions of Christianity -- and in answer to man's desire for greater knowledge and truth, the Dead Sea Scrolls and Nag Hammadi Library of Christian scriptures were discovered which provide clarity and greater spiritual substance EQUALLY, to all three Western religions.   But because few believers understood the important relevance of these scriptures, the present-day writings associated with the teachings of TheWay have come into being to restore the path of return for mankind who are equally portrayed as the lost prodigal son -- and these teachings are EQUALLY relevant to each of the three Western religions.   And we can take this one step further in the declaration that all three religions -- i.e., Judaism, Christianity and Islam, have all emerged from the same Source.   What this means is that when rightly understood, AT THEIR SPIRITUAL CORE, PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES, not only is there no difference between Judaism, Christianity and Islam, but they were authored by the same group of souls who have continually entered this world to guide sincere seekers in TheWay.    And when rightly understood, what unfolds is the very essence of the perpetual war detailed in the writings of the Essenes between the Sons of Light and the sons of darkness -- being waged over the course of many lifetimes where the struggle continues from age to age to age.  

In the same way that the same group of souls have continually entered this world to restore Truth and TheWay, an opposing group of souls who have been hailed as man's religious and secular leaders, have perpetually corrupted these teachings that man who is portrayed as the lost prodigal son, must possess to return to his Source in the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.   Thus, in order to protect and preserve the body of essential teachings that enable sincere seekers to bring about their own Spiritual Regeneration, Birth and Restoral -- i.e., remove the beam first from their own eyes, before attempting to remove the splinter from the eyes of their brothers and sisters -- that group of souls who have been perpetually sent into this world to guide seekers in TheWay, developed a CODE in which they composed their Sacred Writings that would enable them to Restore and Regenerate their own Spiritual Nature, which ability to Self-Transform themselves enabled them to effectively Restore the body of Knowledge which enabled them to convey to sincere seekers the means to acquire and receive the Divine Manna (Gnosis) of Light directly from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.   In the same way that the Gospels portray the sending forth of the seventy to announce the good news of the Kingdom, highly advanced souls have been sent to faithful flocks of seekers across the spectrum of Time, in order to guide them in TheWay.   And while this group of souls have been perpetually hunted down as heretics by the Church, they have guided countless sincere seekers in TheWay into the Kingdom and the Light.   And of these few the Gospel states: "These things I have spoken to you, that you may be kept from stumbling.  They will make you outcasts from the synagogue, but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God" (John 16:1-2 NAS).   Why is it important to understand why those who portray themselves as righteous Jews, Christians and Muslims will hunt the true shepherds of TheWay down and portray their death as "...offering service to God"?   Because their religions have become so corrupted, and they are functioning from what is portrayed in the above as an animal-soul level of consciousness, that they are blind to the Truth. 

Ultimately, the cycles of corruption that attacks all True Religions, is all a necessary part of Truth reaching all of the lost prodigal sons who blindly dwell and are lost in this, the Far Country and Outer Darkness of Mind and Being that is parallel to the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions.   Organic man who in his Epistles Paul portrays as being of an animal-soul level of consciousness, cannot comprehend his own higher soul and spiritual reality.   And thus, the corrupting of the religions is a natural trickle-down effect of important concepts and teachings reaching the greater number of people.   In the same way that Paul could not in any manner convey to the baptized and committed Christians who he taught the true spiritual teachings of the Gospel -- and could only preach to them the allegory of Jesus and him crucified (1 Cor 2:2): “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) -- these important teachings cannot be receive by any of the clergy of faith-based believers who have not themselves evolved through the process of physical refinement, transformation and rebirth.  

The Christian Church in its pre-Nicene form was a Center for Spiritual Healing and Advancement (see The Secret Doctrine).    In the same way that our modern educational systems are divided into primary or basic education, and secondary colleges and universities, the Church was always divided by the believers of the simple-faith who could only grasp the elementary doctrines of faith, and the more advanced groups which guided the serious seeker/disciples in TheWay.    Of these two groups of Christians, Smith and Wace's Dictionary of Christian Biography states: “We have no reason to think that the earliest Gnostics intended to found sects separated from the Church and called after their own names.   Their disciples were to be Christians, elevated above the rest as acquainted with deeper mysteries, and called Gnostikoi because possessed of a Gnosis superior to the simple faith of the multitude…  They also boasted to be in possession of genuine apostolical traditions, deriving their doctrines, some from St. Paul, others from St. Peter, and others again from Judas, Thomas, Philip, and Matthew.   In addition moreover, to [this] secret doctrine which they professed to have received by oral tradition, they appealed also to alleged writings of the apostles themselves or their disciples”.      

 

 

 

What few students of the Bible realize and understand today, is the reality that the author's of the scriptures composed their Sacred Writing in order to be retrieved when their own Soul returns to this world in a future life.   They knew in advance that even if it were possible to create a literal document whereby there would be a clear and direct proclamation of Truth, that such a document would be immediately corrupted once placed in the hands of charlatan priests and self-serving rulers.    Thomas Paine portrayed this natural corrupting factor as "priest-craft" -- i.e., the term priest-craft is defined at vocabulary.com as: "a derogatory reference to priests who use their influence to control secular or political affairs."   They then provide examples of how the phrase has been historically used: "The antisacerdotal heresies were directed against the abuses in doctrine and practice which priestcraft had invented to enslave the souls of men" Lea, Henry Charles) -- "The religious instinct has been perverted, turned into wrong channels, made subservient to priestcraft and kingcraft, but its basic principle remains for ever firm" (Westbrook, Richard B) -- "Credulity, and superstition her twin sister, have in all ages been the source whence priestcraft, and quackery have derived their wealth" (J. G. Millingen).   Just how corrupt was the Church in the Middle Ages?   Martin Luther wrote in a letter to Pope Leo X on September 6th, 1520, portraying the Christianity of his day, that the church, “…once the holiest of all, has become the most licentious den of thieves, the most shameless of all brothels, the kingdom of sin, death, and hell. It is so bad that even Antichrist himself, if he should come, could think of nothing to add to its wickedness” (Quoted in: The Great Thoughts; compiled by George Seldes).

In all of the foregoing examples of historical insight, the process of corruption via priest-craft is portrayed as a perpetual process that alienates the people from the Truth and disenfranchises the lost prodigal sons and daughters from their inheritance as the divine offspring of Creator-God.   Which means that if the souls who were portrayed as the Son's of Light in the Dead Sea Scrolls did not employ a means to prevail over the perpetual corrupting process of priest-craft, then all of their work and labors would have been forever lost and destroyed.  

The American People are presently dwelling in what must be recognized as an unparalleled and unique time -- in that, for the first time those who Know the Truth, are free to convey Truth openly, to a large group of people.   And because of the efforts and blood spilt by our Constitutional Framers (see ThomasPaineRedux.com ), this Truth has been made available on a world-wide basis.   Throughout man's often dark and violent past, truth was exclusively defined as what was endorsed or acceptable to the ruling religious or secular authority.   And today we see an attempt by the secular leaders to undermine the American Constitution, which will once again open the door to future rule by priest-craft and king-craft.  

  The Historical Dilemma: After the above corrupting factor took place, it can rightly be stated that the modern Church has virtually nothing in common with the original teachings of Jesus known as TheWay.  In an interview with Brian Brian McLaren by Christianity Today, he is quoted as stating: "One of the problems is that the average Christian in the average church who listens to the average Christian broadcasting has such an oversimplified understanding of both the Bible and of church history - it would be deeply disturbing for them to really learn about church history" (see Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right) -- to which statement we must pose the question: Does it matter?   If the very people who Jesus personally taught believed what can only be portrayed as radically different than the beliefs that the Church adopted when they entered a covenant with Pagan Rome -- whereby Church dogma became subject to the dictates of the emperor who was a pagan, and not even baptized.   If it can be proven that core principles embraced by those who Jesus personally taught, are rejected as heresy today.    And if it can be demonstrated that Jesus rejected the Pharisees because they had thrown away what he portrayed as the Key of Knowledge in their dogmatic interpretations of the scriptures -- a reality that was repeated by the Church as it became institutionalized and secularized under Pagan Rome -- and because the modern Christian world remains totally ignorant of what really transpired in the first century -- and themselves have in like manner thrown away the Key of Knowledge that Jesus taught was crucial to unlocking the true meaning of the written word of the scriptures -- then this would confirm the reality that the Christian world is presently dwelling in a self-imposed Spiritual Diaspora -- worshiping what Paul warned was the god of this world -- dwelling in what can only be called the abyss of spiritual ignorance.   

While the Church remains in denial of the historical facts which demonstrate that the first followers of Jesus were known as Ebionites (the poor one's) -- that not only his brother was the first leader of the Ebionite Jerusalem Congregation -- but that his mother and family were also members of the Ebionite community.    In The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Gibbon notes that the teachings of Jesus was “…embraced by great numbers of the Therapeutae, or Essinians…”, and wrote that: “Le Clerc (Hist. Ecclesiast p. 477, 535) seems to have collected from Eusebius, Jerome, Epiphanius, and other writers, all the principle circumstances that relate to the Nazarenes or Ebionites. The nature of their opinions soon divided them into a stricter and milder sect; and there is some reason to conjecture that the family of Jesus remained members, at least, of the latter and more moderate party”.   Of course today, in view of modern findings, we know that Gibbon was in error -- i.e., the Therapeutae and Essenes did not embrace the new teachings, they were the very environment from which the historical man Jesus emerged.   But more importantly from a modern Christian perspective is the fact that the Church of today has absolutely nothing in common with this foundational spiritual environment -- and neither does the Christian world have anything in common with the people that Jesus originally taught the Gospel message and the Mysteries of the Kingdom.  

How can this be?   You ask?   How can the dogma of the Church be in conflict with the teachings of the original disciples and followers of the historical Jesus?   A. Powell Davies warned the Christian world that discoveries such as the Dead Sea Scrolls had confirmed what they had known all along -- that the Roman Church created the divinity of Jesus -- i.e., “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).  Worse yet, Edmund Wilson, an expert who worked on the Dead Sea Scrolls, further raised the question as to what difference it makes if “Jesus... had been trained in the discipline and imbued with the thought of a certain Jewish sect, and that he had learned from it the role that he afterwards lived...” (The Scrolls From The Dead Sea).  To the uninformed and unknowing believer, it made all the difference in the world!  If Jesus was an Essene who lived a holy and consecrated life, fulfilling the Law within himself so completely, that he became the Messiah/Christ -- i.e., At-One with the indwelling Logos/Son of God at his baptism as stated by all Church Authorities prior to the fourth century Nicene Council held by the Roman Emperor Constantine (see The Ten Words) -- then the Adam Clark Bible Commentary is correct when it states that "...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless"!!!    When Prof. John Allegro was quoted as saying that what has been revealed in the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls is a great amount of overwhelming evidence that “...may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church.   This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers.   The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine” (August 1966 issue of Harpers Magazine); what he was in fact stating is that, everything that we now know about Christian beginnings demonstrate that the Essene/Ebionites were not the heretics  they were falsely portrayed by the later Gentile church, but were in fact the body of genuine believers that held fast to the authentic teachings of Jesus and the New Covenant.    That the Ebionites who were condemned by the  later Roman Church who created the Jesus-god myth, were correct -- and that the Gentiles were too heathen to comprehend the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.   Thus, the Encyclopedia Britannica writes: "Most of the features of Ebionite doctrine were anticipated in the teachings of the earlier Qumran sect, as revealed in the Dead Sea Scrolls. They believed in one God and taught that Jesus was the Messiah and was the true 'prophet' mentioned in Deuteronomy 18:15. They rejected the Virgin Birth of Jesus, instead holding that he was the natural son of Joseph and Mary. The Ebionites believed Jesus became the Messiah because he obeyed the Jewish Law. They themselves faithfully followed the Law, although they removed what they regarded as interpolations in order to uphold their teachings, which included vegetarianism, holy poverty, ritual ablutions, and the rejection of animal sacrifices. The Ebionites also held Jerusalem in great veneration."

Did the mother of Jesus who was herself a member of the Ebionites, not know of the virgin birth?   Or, does the allegory of the Virgin Birth present an important teaching that the Church is totally ignorant of today?   While it is easily proven that the original Gospels did not contain the virgin birth narrative which was added at a later time to those copies of the Gospels used by the Greeks, it is important to understand the true meaning of the virgin birth -- an important spiritual meaning that the modern Christian world is totally unaware of today.   But to even acknowledge this fact, has the effect of opening the great Pandora's Box of infinite dogmatic error that confuses and divides the religious world today.    Why?   When Jesus condemned and rejected the Pharisees as heretics, it was because they were counterfeit shepherds who had -- in their carnal interpretations of the scriptures which Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" -- they had thrown away what Jesus called The Key of Knowledge which must be turned within one's self.   And yet, the modern Christian is absolutely clueless as to what the Key of Knowledge is, and hasn't the slightest idea how to properly apply it.    If you ask the modern faith-based Christian how Jesus taught to apply the Key of Knowledge to gain immediate access to the Kingdom -- and even to come into the direct presence of what Jesus portrayed as the One Teacher -- a Teacher which his disciples called The True Prophet -- the modern faith-based believer will look at you with clueless abandon in their eyes.   Why?   Because this most important core teaching of the Original Gospel that was understood by the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples, was thrown away by the later Church which called themselves Orthodox -- a Church that Paul warned would worship the AntiChrist in place of God (see Church Of The Anti-Christ) -- a Church which cast mankind into the Dark Ages from which they have yet to emerge.  

The fact that the scriptures which the present-day Church champions, was written by Ebionite Nazirene Mystics and Spiritual Visionaries who viewed the sacred writings from an entirely different perspective than the modern believers -- and the path of TheWay which Jesus taught was the only means to enter the Kingdom -- the cruel facts in the believer's confrontation with An Inconvenient Truth and Spiritual Reality, is that the modern Christian is merely a latter-day Pharisee who has installed the dogma and traditions of men above the Truth and the quest to seek the Kingdom of God.    And while the above can easily be factually proven, the Christian world chooses to remain faithful to the doctrines of Roman emperors and their appointed carnal priests, while rejecting the Truth of the Original Gospel.  If it is true that Jesus condemned the Pharisees as counterfeit leaders because, having thrown away the Key of Knowledge, they were rendered blind shepherds who guided the people in the wrong direction -- then the same is true of the Church today.  

What Christians today fail to realize is the fact that the original Ebionite/Nazirene followers and disciples of Jesus believed very differently than people today -- so different, that it can be said that modern Christians follow a totally different religion than that which was taught by Jesus.   In fact, the beliefs of the original followers of Jesus were so different than either Judaism or that of the later Church, that it was said of them that they were “…rejected from one religion as apostates, and from the other as heretics” (Gibbon: Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, v.1, p.416).  

Why were the original disciples and teachings rejected by the later Roman Church?  While no one throughout Christian history has ever questioned the resurrection and the Sonship of Jesus, what has been questioned is when the man Jesus became the Messiah/Christ -- or Anointed One of God -- as well as what it means to be the Anointed of God.  And while the Christian world fervently studies their Bibles, there exists ten words that so totally alters our perception and understanding of the life of Jesus and the core principles and objectives of the Gospel, that every modern-day doctrine of the church would have to be radically revised in light of these ten words.   To the degree that the restoral of these ten words would bring about a rebirth of the Gospel message in a way that would totally eliminate all the doctrinal confusion and factions that divide the Christian world today.   Further, once these ten words are acknowledged, the original Ebionite/Nazirene followers of Jesus are no longer viewed as heretics -- but rather, the true and faithful disciples of TheWay!

In the same way that the fourth century Church persecuted and murdered the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus because of these ten words which were the original words spoken by God to mankind at Jesus' baptism in the Jordan -- it remains true that when these original ten words are restored to their rightful place in the Gospel message, that the whole focus of the Gospel message becomes radically changed.   @@@ that totally change every aspect of one's mindset and lifestyle, these same ten words inhibit the Christian world from making any real spiritual gains, and they cause the Church to become spiritually flat-lined.   To the degree that one Christian Bible Commentary states that if these Ten Words are True, then the present day doctrines of the Church are “vain and baseless”.

While modern Christians who believe in the doctrine of the Trinity believe that Jesus was God, this doctrine would have to be immediately rejected when the correct ten words are restored to their rightful place in the scriptures.   With regard to when these words were spoken, Christian history also tells us that these words were in fact said to Jesus: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee".  The problem is that, with the exception of a footnote at the baptism of Jesus in the Revised Standard Version, these words are no longer contained in our Bibles today. What the footnote states is that many of the more ancient manuscripts read: "Today I have begotten thee", instead of "In thee I am well pleased" at Luke 3:22.   Yet, this footnote in no measure portrays all the other citations which confirm that Jesus was a man who fulfilled the Law within himself, and became the Messiah/Christ, at his baptism -- and he did this by overcoming and fulfilling the Law.   Which means that the primary goal of True Christians is to Imitate Christ -- i.e., “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).   Therefore, unless you bring about those conditions where you lose your worldly life on the Cross, then you cannot be a believer or follower of Messiah/Christ.

If God intended Jesus to be a one time perpetual sacrifice for the sins of man, then it never would have been stated that "...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).   What this means is that the religion of Jesus in its original form was one of spiritual transformation -- and those who willfully sin, crucify the Son of God afresh, and "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."  This is why Paul stated with respect to continue to living a sinful life: “But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor” (Gal 2:17-18 KJV).    Which confirms the alternate ending of the Gospel of Mark which reads:  "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 - Also quoted by St. Jerome as being the authentic ending of the Gospel of Mark).

In a surviving excerpt of what has been historically known as the Gospel According to the Hebrews, which was reported to be the "original version of Matthew" that was composed in the Hebrew Characters, it was written: "If ye be in my bosom and do not the will of my Father which is in heaven, out of my bosom will I cast you away".  In the late nineteenth century a library of scriptures was uncovered which is today known as the Oxyrhynchus Papyri -- wherein this verse is found reading: "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’".   What these verses mean is that if you continue to sin after coming to Messiah/Christ, that you are an apostate to the teachings of TheWay, and "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."

Paul's doctrine of faith vs the outward rituals of the Mosaic Law, is based upon the reality that if the disciple truly follows in TheWay -- doing as Jesus states and picking up their own cross in Imitation of Messiah/Christ -- that the Kingdom that Jesus taught was within each person (see http://GateOfEden.com ), will manifest within the body-mind of the disciple -- i.e., The Second Coming.   When the Key of Knowledge is applied to the scriptures -- and they are turned within -- then the disciple becomes transformed into what is called The Final Temple (see http://TheThreeLies.com#temple ).   Thus, this brings about the promised End Times or Second Coming within the mind and body of the faithful disciple of TheWay.   That the Kingdom came within the body and mind of the disciples, is why Jesus stated “Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all things take place” (Luke 21:32 NAS).   Which confirms the words: “There are some standing here, who shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom” (Mt 16:28).

These, and other such spiritual concepts of a Kingdom that comes within the lives of those who pick up their own cross and travail in TheWay, were totally unacceptable to the heathen Church of Rome, and the scriptures were corrupted in order to make them support the doctrines of the emperor.  That the Church has abandoned the original teachings of Jesus, and have ignored the facts when it is demonstrated that the Church of Rome 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.

  The Fatal Error Of The Church: The question must be posed: Can you just read the Gospels and know the truth? After Paul had personally taught the congregation of Christians at Corinth, he warned them that all he could give and teach them -- and all that they could receive and comprehend -- was the elementary Gospel teachings that were allegorically presented in what appeared to be an historical account of Jesus and him crucified.  Paul portrayed these entry-level doctrines as the traditions of "Jesus and the crucifixion".   This fact is explored and proven in the subheading entitled Mystery Of The Gospel.   Even after personally teaching this Christian Congregation, Paul warns them that the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom is so incomprehensible to man in his "natural" organic condition of mind, that if he even attempted to speak plainly with them in an attempt to convey man's higher reality of soul and spirit which they know absolutely nothing about, they would condemn and reject the spiritual meaning of the Gospel as utter "foolishness"!!!   To even imagine that the modern Christian whose doctrines of belief are based upon what the Biblical scholars point out is the gravely flawed "..source and originality of Christian doctrine” that came into being in the fourth century --  and that the modern believer whose thinking has been imbued with this fourth century pagan dogma can merely open the Bible to confirm their beliefs -- and ignore the warning of Paul and the biblical authors that even those Christians who the Apostles personally taught and were of a more pure understanding could not comprehend the true meaning and the  Mystery Of The Gospel, are a people asking to be deceived.    

The Long Ignored Warning: Paul warns that the higher reality of the soul and the true meaning of the Gospel would be condemned and rejected as utter "foolishness" by the congregation of believers who he had himself taught.   And one of the great inconceivable realities that the congregation of faith-based believers have rarely ever been able to come to terms with, is the fact that in a True Spiritual Religion there is only One Teacher -- and the seeker must therefore learn only from this One Teacher.  To the degree that the Apostle Peter stated to his disciple Clement with respect to learning directly from what the first followers of Jesus portrayed as the True Prophet: Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples” (see True Prophet).     And that man in his organic state of mind is incapable of understanding the true meaning of the scriptures, is demonstrated in the words of Peter when he warns that "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without" (see The Spiritual Disenfranchisement Of The Mind).     And what this statement warns is that because the people of this world rely upon their natural organic senses and mind to assess what they think they see -- failing to distinguish and understand that they dwell in a world of allegorical symbolism and forms that are an allusion/illusion -- that all those who base their conclusions and assumptions on human (organic) perception and reasoning, will remain dwelling under the cloak of ignorance in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).   And this is why Jesus taught his disciples to seek out and learn only from the One Teacher who is the True Prophet, who is the Only Source of Knowledge.  

Where can the True Prophet and One Teacher be Found?   While there are virtually countless opinions as to the meaning of the scriptures, only when the scriptures are turned within one's own self and used as the Key of Knowledge -- enabling the seeker to enter in at what is portrayed as the "narrow strait gate" within one's own mind and being (see The Third Fatal Mistake - Not Proving The Truth) -- gaining entrance to the Inner Kingdom -- can the seeker enter the Presence of the True Prophet/Son Of God/Logos -- and fulfill the commandment to learn only from the Source of All Truth.    

When the modern believer opens the Gospels and envisions what he believes to be an historical account, they are totally ignorant of the fact that the authors of the Gospels did not at all write about history.   And in the rejection and condemnation of the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus, the whole spiritual meaning and purpose of the Gospel remains an enigma to the Christian world today.   Why were the Ebionites condemned and rejected as heretics?   Because they rejected the very pagan doctrines of belief which were held by the Greeks and Romans who were too heathen to understand the spiritual essence of the Gospel teachings -- doctrines and beliefs which were essentially Mithraic, and has little in common with the original Gospel teachings and objectives.   Historically, it is documented and warned that the most spiritual versions of the Gospels were never given over to the Gentiles (see Most Important Scriptures Never Given To The Gentiles).   And because the Greeks and Romans were too heathen and pagan to understand the spiritual concepts that Jesus revealed to his core disciples, it was warned in the Epistle of Peter And James that, if this esoteric knowledge should ever become lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error" (see Always To Wander In Error).  Why?   Primarily, because they look outwardly for what can only come inwardly.   And because the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus, along with those Spiritual (Gnostic) Christians who faithfully preserved this framework of esoteric knowledge were hunted down and murdered by the Church of Constantine -- and their scriptures burnt and destroyed -- the Church had thrown away what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge which is necessary to unlock both the true meaning of the scriptures, -- which spiritual knowledge must be used to unlock and open the inner "narrow strait gate" that provides entrance to the Kingdom that Jesus taught to seek and find.  

The question must be posed: Why does the Gospel account portray Jesus as rejecting the Pharisees as blind guides?   Because they had thrown away the Key of Knowledge.   "Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered" (Luke 11:52 KJV).   And with respect to the proper use of the Key of Knowledge, Jesus stated: "But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in" (Matt 23:13 KJV).   There is no way of evading the teaching that Jesus condemned the Pharisees because of (1) their failure to enter into the Kingdom; and (2) their obstructing the path of those who were striving to enter the Kingdom.   With respect to these ignored and gravely misunderstood words: What was the seeker supposed to use the Key of Knowledge to enter in?   Enter in the Inner Kingdom -- coming into the Presence of the True Prophet -- where the Truth of all Creation would be revealed to them.    And the fact that the carnal Jews has thrown away the Key of Knowledge -- in the same manner that the Church of Rome which called itself Orthodox threw away the Key of Knowledge -- was the reality portrayed in the words: "...hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in"  

The Gospel teachings of Jesus known as TheWay was intended to free the people from the cloud of profound ignorance imposed upon them by the organic limitations of the physical body, and open the door within them to a reality of higher understanding, knowledge and awareness.    An important insight into the very essence of the genuine and original teachings of TheWay is contained in an article in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.     What is expressed in these words is of the utmost importance, in that the original teachings of Jesus was not the belief in the Mithraic sun-god of the Church of Constantine -- but rather, the means to make all Christians prophets and mystics as demonstrated in the words: "...From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.  

That modern Christianity has very little in common with the original teachings of Jesus, is demonstrated in the words that the objective of the teachings of TheWay was to bring about "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”  -- which has absolutely nothing in common with the blind faith dogmatized Church that came into being in the fourth century.   And, just as equally important to understand, is that "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”  has absolutely nothing to do with the expansion of the physical brain -- but rather, the development of those areas of mind that the physical brain which is of an earth-vibrational frequency, does not support.   

Until it is recognized that present-day Christianity has absolutely nothing in common with the original objectives and teachings of Jesus and TheWay, then little to no spiritual progress can be made.     Once understood for what they presently are, the modern doctrines of the Church are in fact a synthesis of the most elementary faith-based entry-level Gospel concepts that Paul referred to as the entry-level "testimony of Christ", with the doctrines of Mithraicism which was the Universal Religion of the Roman Empire.    With the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the long suspected evidence was suddenly proven -- i.e., biblical scholars such as A. Powell Davies openly confirmed that: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).    And that, in order for the synthesis of religions to be brought about by the Emperor Constantine, (1) Jesus was declared to be God (see The Ten Words ); (2) the most corrupted copies of the Gospels were further corrupted in order to make them support the doctrines of Pagan Rome (see http://BibleCorruption.com ); (3) and the true, spiritual disciples of Jesus were hunted down by the armies of the emperor, and murdered (see The Death Of The Religion Of Jesus ).    And in the conversion of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay into a faith-based pagan religion, the necessary esoteric knowledge was lost, and mankind was plunged into the abyss of spiritual ignorance.

What is the "testimony of Christ" that Paul taught the congregation at Corinth?   Paul portrays the higher realty of the soul and the Kingdom as the reality of “…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).   So, the question then becomes: How do you start to convey to entry-level faith-based believers what is  "...so astounding that they are beyond a man's power to describe or put in words"???   The only means available is to create a system of allegorical symbols that act as catalysts which begin the process of "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.    Thus, Paul warns the congregation at Corinth: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).    Spiritually discerned indicated that they are spiritually revealed as the disciple applies the Key of Knowledge to gain entrance to the Kingdom, and is able to receive the Sacred Manna/Gnosis from the True Prophet.   Paul then goes on and warns these believers of a natural mind who were baptized and dedicated to Christ: “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 NAS).   Thus, these believers could only be taught the doctrine of Jesus Christ and him crucified (1 Cor 2:2), because they were not yet spiritual men -- but rather, they were men of flesh and still very much “babes in Christ”.   Paul then explains that: “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able” (1 Cor 3:2 NAS - Spiritual Defeat ).    

Why are the scriptures -- as well as the Gospel accounts -- all allegorical symbols that must have the Key of Knowledge applied to them in order to begin to perceive the true meaning of the written word which Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth"??? (2 Cor 3:6).    Because man's higher soul-reality and the Kingdom is utterly incomprehensible to his very limited organic human understanding -- an understanding which must undergo the process of "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” in order to perceive and comprehend both the essence of the Gospel, and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God.    And in its original form, the Gospel was designed to bring about the necessary physical transformation that fulfilled the Law within the disciple, and manifest within them what is portrayed as the Final Temple that enables the seeker to enter within the Holy of Holies, and learn from the True Prophet.   This transformation is brought about by becoming the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed.    And this process of expansion which brings about the transformation of body and mind, is portrayed in the words which portray the spiritual increase of those who make themselves the "good ground... [which]  …multiplying thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times” what was initially received (Mark 4:8).   

The scriptures are not at all historical accounts in the manner that they are thought of by modern Christians.   I have already demonstrated that the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom are incomprehensible even to the congregation of believers who have received the testimony of Christ.   Because man's soul and spiritual reality is incomprehensible to him, the scriptures are an allegorical presentation of symbols that act as a catalyst which, when the Key of Knowledge is properly utilized, can be used to gain entrance to the Kingdom within -- drawing the disciple into the Presence of the indwelling True Prophet -- wherein the disciple can begin to receive the revelation of All Truths.

  The Great Human Dilemma: There is a reason and a cause for all things -- and this includes why men and women see the world from a different and often conflicting perspective.   In the allegorical account of the Tower of Babel it is stated:  “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).    This confusion that exists among all of mankind has an organic reason that is the result of the Natural Laws which must maintain Balance and Wholeness of Mind across the spectrum of mankind.   Thus, not only is their an important reason why different people perceive and understand the world and all things from a different and often conflicting perspective, but it is these very differences that when rightly understood, has the potential to unlock the mind and totally eradicate the confusion of organic human consciousness.  

Without understanding the allegory of the Tower of Babel Syndrome and the Natural Laws which cause each man to function from a different aspect of mind -- a condition of mind that causes each individual to think and perceive the world differently than the next man (see The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind) -- and why the biblical authors warned that it was impossible for men of a "natural" organic mind to comprehend their own higher soul-reality and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God (see above Fatal Error) -- then The Great Human Dilemma is manifest in the inability of men to communicate from the same perspective -- but this is even more so the Great Dilemma with respect to a Spiritually Mature person who attempts to communicate his higher vision and understanding of reality to those who the Apostle Paul portrays as being of a "natural" organic mindset.    

Einstein, who, like Plato, Pythagoras and other great thinkers, perhaps put the dogmatic dilemma of man into the proper perspective as quoted in the recent biography by Walter Isaacson where it is written: In 1929, during a dinner party in Berlin, someone asked Einstein if he was religious. " Yes, you can call it that," Einstein replied. "Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind the discernible laws and connections there remains something subtle, intangible, and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent, I am, in fact religious."  Shortly after his 50th birthday, Einstein gave an interview during which someone asked him, "Do you believe in God?" Einstein responded, "I'm not an atheist. I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying laws but only dimly understand these laws."  

The word “theology” comes from two Greek words, “theos” meaning “God,” and “Logos” meaning “Word” or Word of God -- but when the core principles of Creation and the Trinity is understood, the word Logos means the Mind of God -- and is the third-force balance between what is portrayed as Mother/Father God (see Logos).   Taken together we have the concept of “knowledge about God.”   Add to this the statement by the Apostle Peter as preserved in the Homilies of his disciple Clement that Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. (see The True Prophet) -- fulfilling the objective "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me" (John 6:45 NKJ) -- and what we are presented with is the true reality of religion that those who claim to be religious are in denial of.   But to accomplish the primary objective of the scriptures and prevail over the Tower of Babel Syndrome, we must begin to understand the Natural Laws that invokes the mass-confusion in-which organic man finds himself immersed.   Those who are able to begin to attain a higher level of spiritual maturity, are as those who "...are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages."   And in recognizing the mass-confusion that exists among the opinions and perceptions of mankind, those on the path of higher spiritual maturity, are those who "...dimly suspect a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is"  -- recognizing that "...the universe [is] marvelously arranged and obeying laws but only [a very few among mankind are able to] dimly understand these laws."   But those who do, and are able to bring the the great segmentation of language and mind together within themselves to achieve Wholeness, are able to fulfill the Royal Law and "...then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them."

In understanding what is being presented, it is important to recognize that when Peter stated that one can live a spiritual life and "...hasten the coming of the day of God" (2 Peter 3:12 NKJV), the only possible interpretation is the fulfillment of the End Times within one's own mind and being.   And the Gospels speak of those who will see and experience the Kingdom Coming within them -- i.e., “But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of God.” (Mt 16:28; Mark 9:1; Luke 9:27).  And Peter portrayed the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) of the disciples as the fulfillment of the End Times Prophecies: "Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. These men are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord’" (Acts 2:14-21 NIV). While the the "...blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord’" did not transpire in the outer world -- yet, what is signified in the allegory did happen within the disciples who saw and experienced the Kingdom (second coming) come within them.  Since what is portrayed in the name Jesus is the pattern of salvation, when you pick up your own cross and immerse yourself in the Pattern, only then can the Christ come within you.  The objective of the Gospel is to Enter In The House with the Lord (see  below: In The House).  While those who are portrayed as being "outside", can only be taught in the enigma of parables -- because they dwell in a shadow-world of illusions, and are incapable of comprehending the higher reality of their own souls.  And this is exactly what is portrayed at the end of the Book of Revelation where the people who dwell under the illusions of what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" ( see Outer Darkness) as being "outside" -- i.e., "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).  The whole quotation portrays those who have prevailed and overcome, and are able to enter through the gates of what is often portrayed as Spiritual Jerusalem: "Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie" (Rev 22:14-15 NKJ). And the process of "...entering through the gates into the city" is parallel to that of "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 Proper Application Of The Key Of Knowledge: Once the scriptures are properly understood, they are very much the Key of Knowledge that if properly turned within and used to open the inner "narrow strait gate", they will enable the seeker to learn directly from the One True Teacher, and bestow upon such a sincere disciple the Life that the Gospels promise to the faithful believer.    Which means that even those who claim to believe, and yet fail to fulfill the spiritual objective of the Gospels within themselves, are those who walk upon the broad-way of self destruction -- i.e., "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).   And when Jesus was asked directly when the Kingdom of God would come upon the earth as Jews and Christians believe, Jesus said it would never come upon the earth, because it is within us all: "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).   That modern Christians walk the broad-way of self-destruction, is because long ago the Church threw away the  Key of Knowledge in the manner of the carnal Jews -- and thus, what was said of the Jews then, is true of the Christians today: "How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering" (Luke 11:52).

In the same way that Jesus expected the leaders of the Jews to properly apply the Key of Knowledge and enter the (inner) Kingdom (see GateOfEden.com) -- and thereby become enlightened to the Truth directly from the Source of All Truth (see The True Prophet) -- in their failure to properly apply the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge, they made themselves blind guides who were leading the people in the wrong direction down what Jesus called the "broad-way of destruction", making themselves apostates to the Kingdom of God.   Thus, the reality of the crucial questions that modern Christians close their eyes to is this: (1) How did the Pharisees and Jewish authorities "...hide the key to knowledge from the people"?    (2) Why did Jesus condemn the leaders of the Jews for failing to enter the Kingdom themselves? -- i.e., "...You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves"!   And, (3) how did the religious leaders of the Jews "...prevent others from entering?" 

That the primary objective of the Gospel is to prepare and enable the seeker/disciple to enter the Kingdom, is further demonstrated in Jesus' condemnation of the blind religious leaders as seen in the words: "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to" (Matt 23:13 NIV).   Which means that the Kingdom of God is not something that will come as we wait for it to arrive in this world, which Jesus portrayed as the Far Country -- but rather, it is a reality which man must seek, find and enter -- which is why Jesus warned that those who do not themselves pick up their own cross and travail in TheWay, are neither believers or worthy to be called his disciples and followers.   Allegorically, the restoration of the prodigal son to his rightful place in the Kingdom is portrayed as the resurrection -- and that this resurrection can only be attained and brought about while in the body-vessel, is demonstrated in the statement of the Gospel of Philip in the warning: "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" (see Gospel Of Philip).   But perhaps even more important is the fact that the Christians, like the Jews before them, have themselves thrown away the Key of Knowledge -- and they have promoted the doctrines and traditions of pagan Rome -- the Christians have preached a doctrine where they teach the people to "...commit apostasy" where they "...crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt" -- and as an apostate to the New Covenant, Paul warns that "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins" (see TheLie.org ).   And like the carnal Jews whose heart was hardened by their spiritually apathetic ways, they condemn the Truth and the Gospel Objectives as heresy!

The question should be posed: Can we just read the literal text of the scriptures and know the truth?   In the manner that Christians attempt to do today?   Paul called the written words of the scriptures the "letter that killeth" (2 Cor 3:6) -- because most of the literal written word that appeared to be historical, was little more than "Jewish fables" (Titus 1:14).   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 (see Mystery), and they will look upon the Mysteries of God as "foolishness" -- i.e., “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).   And he warned these baptized and confirmed Christians of whom it was said that they had received all the gifts and testimony of the Gospel of Christ, that their untransformed mind was yet too carnal to comprehend and begin to grasp the necessary higher realities of soul and spirit -- i.e., “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to 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 TheWay -- 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 ignore this warning by Paul, as well as a parallel warning by Jesus himself, and a warning by Peter and all the early elders and leaders of the Church, is to cast one's self into a Spiritual Diaspora of profound ignorance that will be near impossible to emerge from -- i.e., biblically portrayed as the "broad-way of death".   Further, unlike the modern believer, the above words were written by Paul to a congregation of Christians who he (Paul) had himself taught the meaning of the Gospel.   And what Paul was stating was that it would be impossible for them to understand the true meaning of the Gospel, until which time their minds became transformed and evolved into a state of spiritual maturity that would enable them to perceive and understand what was incomprehensible to those Christians who could only comprehend the Gospel and the meaning of the scriptures from a human physical perspective.   And this fact was confirmed by Jesus in the parable of the Sower and the Seed when he warned those who had received the Word:  “And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13 KJV).  And to put this great biblical truth in the more modern language of the New Living Translation: “But if you can't understand this story, how will you understand all the others I am going to tell?”     And what this means is that if you fail to understand and put into practice the essential teachings of the parable of the Sower and the Seed in every aspect of your life, that there is no means for you to perceive and comprehend anything beyond what Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth" (2 Cor 3:6) -- which was in fact the plight of the Pharisees who had thrown away the Key of Knowledge.

 

  Peter vs Simon Magus On Scriptural Interpretation And Meaning: Those who are familiar with the quotations of the Apostle Peter as presented by his disciple Clement in what is known as the Clementine Homilies -- often portrayed as Pseudo-Clement, because, like all the earliest of Christian writings, the spiritual concepts are in conflict with the dogma forced upon the Church by the emperors of Pagan Rome -- will encounter a reality that the modern Church is simply not prepared to understand.    In preparation for an upcoming confrontation with Simon Magus, Peter explains: “Therefore Simon, who is going to discuss in public with us tomorrow, is bold against the monarchy of God, wishing to produce many statements from these Scriptures, to the effect that there are many gods, and a certain one who is not He who made this world, but who is superior to Him; and, at the same time, he is going to offer many scriptural proofs. But we also can easily show many passages from them that He who made the world alone is God, and that there is none other besides Him”.  Thus, it is foretold that each side will be able to prove their dogma with many scriptural passages.   Simon will be able to prove that the world was created by a false god -- and Peter will be able to prove that the world was created by the One God.   Both will be able to use the same scriptures to prove their assertions.   This inherent design of scripture is by Divine Providence that each person sees in the body of the writings that which confirms their own beliefs.  

Peter then goes on to state that: “But if any one shall wish to speak otherwise, he also shall be able to produce proofs from them at his pleasure. For the Scriptures say all manner of things, that no one of those who inquire ungratefully may find the truth, but simply what he wishes to find, the truth being reserved…” -- which means that each person who opens the scriptures will only see what they already believe to be true.   Yet, Peter warns that the disciple must seek out and learn the correct meaning of the scriptures ONLY from the Shepherd and True Prophet.   Which means that By Design, the scriptures are a reflection of self, and everyone is supposed to perceive and find their own predetermined beliefs in the pages of the scriptures -- believing that the scriptures confirm what they already believe.  

During their discussion that was to ensue, Simon became hostile when Peter refused to engage in his interpretation of the scriptures and said: “Then said Simon: 'You are manifestly avoiding the hearing of the charge from the Scriptures against your God.'" To which Peter then replied: "'You yourself appear to me to be doing this; for he who avoids the order of inquiry, does not wish a true investigation to be made. Hence I, who proceed in an orderly manner, and wish that the writer should first be considered, am manifestly desirous to walk in a straight path’”.   What, then, the intelligent seeker must ask, is the order of inquiry?  In these words are noted the most profound error of both Bible believers as well as the critics today who only perceive what is literally written in the narrative of the written word.   Believers see and read the scriptures in the manner predicated by their doctrines, while ignoring the very warning of the scriptures that it is their own perception of the Word that is in error.   Simon wants to engage Peter and use the scriptures to prove that the world was created by a lesser god.   Peter states that By Design, anyone can prove almost any doctrine by using the scriptures -- and therefore, before the scriptures can be understood, the “writer should first be considered” -- meaning that the reader must look past their own opinions and beliefs, and perceive the inner meaning conveyed by the writer -- based upon the original purpose and objectives of the writer.   Any woodworker or craftsman knows that, while you can use a fine chisel as a screwdriver -- and young children who have access to such tools mistakenly do it all the time -- not only is a chisel a poor alternative for a screwdriver -- but you ruin the chisel and render it worthless to perform its intended task.   In much the same manner, when you attempt to utilize the scriptures in a manner outside their intended purpose and objective, you render the scriptures worthless.   

That Peter's warning is correct, is overwhelmingly proven by the modern church.   Many very intelligent minds and astute biblical students have studied the scriptures and continue to hold conflicting opinions that oppose what the next person sees very clearly represented in the Bible.   Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe that Jesus is God -- and they can demonstrate their doctrine in the Bible.   Baptists, Pentecostals, and most other Evangelical Christians believe that Jesus is God, and they have a whole host of biblical citations to prove their doctrines.   The Mormons believe in the pre-existence of the soul.   The Quakers have no formal doctrine, and believe only in the revelation of the inner Light.   Presbyterians, Methodists, Lutherans, this Orthodox, that Orthodox, this Church of God, the Universalists, the Reformers, the all inclusive Liberals, the Conservatives, etc., all faithfully read the scriptures, and all find important points of disagreement.   What we must begin to understand is that many of these people are very intelligent and sincere believers -- and yet they all see something different when they open and read the pages of the same scriptures.   Their flaw is not in what they see -- but like Simon, they all failed to heed Peter's words when he warned that the “writer should first be considered” -- and if the writer has been personally taught by what Jesus portrayed as The True Prophet -- and the writer has indeed been enlightened by the Holy Spirit -- then it is the interpretation that this writer conveys, that is the only true meaning.   But that would mean that you must read and utilize the scriptures with the same purpose and objectives as the authors who wrote them for a specific purpose.

If what the early church authorities say is true, and any number of doctrines and dogma can be proven using the same scriptures, then the reader must learn to relinquish personal interpretation.   What, then, is the answer?   The genuine revelation of the scriptures can only be learned from the True Prophet as to the correct meaning of the narrative.  “Hence, O beloved Clement”, proclaims Peter, “if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples”.   These words -- that you can only learn the things of God from Him alone -- are as true today as when Peter spoke them to his disciple Clement in the first century.

The Great Proverbial Question: Is God An Incompetent Imbecile?  If God is the Supreme Intelligence and Creator of the Universe who sees and knows all things from the beginning of time to the end, then the question must be asked: Why didn't God author a set of scriptures where the meaning was so plain, that everyone who opened the books of the Bible would derive the same meaning from what they read?    This question is so important -- and so gravely misunderstood by believer and critic alike, that it can be said that because mankind fails to understand why virtually everyone who turns to the scriptures sees a different and often conflicting message in its pages, the whole of mankind has been immersed in an sea of confusion -- dwelling in a self-imposed intellectual dark ages -- unable to make any real progress towards unlocking the potential of one's own mind, and the true reality of even life itself.       

Is there any clarity to the true meaning of the scriptures?  Even a very casual examination of the religious world demonstrates that just the opposite is true -- and there are more opinions as to the meaning of the scriptures, than of any other writing known to man.   And yet, the truth and reality of the scriptures is so profound, that the very reason for this mass confusion totally escapes the understanding of everyone who attempts to open the pages of the Bible.   And when it is recognized that the often profound differences in interpretations -- differences which in the past have spawned great conflict and even wars -- that these differences which have in fact been organically hardwired into the perception and mind of mankind, have been imposed upon him by the Laws of Creator-God -- those who fail to understand the causal factors that immerse mankind in a virtual sea of confusion, will remain a slave to the very Principality and Kingdom of Ignorance.   

Like the confusion imposed upon man in the analogy of the account of the Tower of Babel, what is presented in this allegory is representative of the same Laws at work that perpetually confuse the readers of not only the scriptures, but of the very meaning of life and the world in which man presently finds himself dwelling.   Further, in the same way that the massive confusion in the account of the Tower of Babel was instituted by the Laws of God working directly upon the minds of men, in like manner the scriptures were purposely written so as to confuse the reader -- unless certain specific conditions existed first.   What this means is that a man of insight and wisdom will first want to know (1) why these limitations exist, and have been imposed upon the mind of man; (2) what those conditions are that enables the seeker/disciple to comprehend what the vast majority of people are blind to; (3) and then to sincerely embrace those conditions; (4) including the proper application of what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge; (5) rather than follow what the scriptures portray as the blind guides who lead others into the proverbial ditch along the side of TheWay.   

It is an ever-looming and grave fact that, because believers, critics, as well as those who are looked to as experts and scholars in our universities, all fail to understand the nature of the scriptures from the vision and perception of the original authors, the scriptures remain a perpetual enigma to nearly all who open them.   Further, until the reader comes to understand exactly why the Tower of Babel syndrome applies intimately to them -- and the scriptures were intentionally composed so that everyone who opens them will see something different and often in conflict with what others see in the scriptures -- then no real progress can be made towards understanding the Great Truths that reside concealed and preserved beneath the garb of the written text.   And in this respect, while we often hear Christians babbling about talking in tongues that makes no sense to the hearer -- of the original account it is written: "And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance ...And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language. Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, Look, are not all these who speak Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born?" (Acts 2:4-9 NKJV).   And what this makes reference to a reversal of the allegory of the Tower of Babel and the Laws which cause each person to see and understand all that they perceive, from a totally different and often opposite and conflicting understanding.   From one voice, everyone who spoke a different native language, all heard as if what was being spoke was in their own language.  Of those few who can successfully reverse the effect of the Laws that produces the Tower of Babel Syndrome which plagues all of mankind who are as Paul portrayed of a "natural" organic consciousness, the scriptures state: “...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).    And when rightly understood, the purpose of the scriptures is to reverse the Tower of Babel Syndrome which plagues all of mankind, and create that condition within the seeker/disciple where "...nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them”. 

In the original account of the Tower of Babel the Laws of God created a condition where everyone heard and spoke differently from each other -- i.e., "...Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other’” (Gen 11:1-7 NIV).    And until it is understood that these Laws which affect the hearing and understanding of each person remains in effect -- and continues to confuse the perception and thinking of the people -- then no real progress can be made to overcome the dilemma that plagues all of mankind.   And it is equally important to understand why only the disciples of Jesus were portrayed as hearing and speaking in the Universal Language of the Soul -- and was therefore understood by each person in the native language of the Laws they were born under.  And in this respect the bottom line is this: That it makes little difference as to what YOU believe the nature of the scriptures are, because what you are hearing is merely in accord with the very fragmented "...language in which [you] were born" in accord with the Laws you were born under.   Whereas, the authors of the scriptures perceived and understood from the higher reality of the language of the soul -- and being Whole and Complete, they perceived and understood from the perspective of the Anointed Mind that Comprehends all things as they truly are.   Which means that if you fail to understand the sacred writings from the same perception and understanding as the original authors who composed them, that your comprehension will remain both incomplete, and a virtual fragment of the Whole.  

Once rightly understood, we can in fact portray the above enigma of the Tower of Babel Syndrome is as the Paradigm of Thought which filters and colors not only each person's perception of the scriptures, but also all aspects of the life they are living.   Thus, before you can even begin to understand the true meaning of the scriptures, you must first come to understand the original objectives and goals of the authors -- their purpose in composing the writings -- and even more important, the more Enlightened Paradigm of Thought of the authors of the scriptures.   And if we pose the question as to whether it really matters if we understand the true meaning of the scriptures?   And we reason: After all, hasn't the findings of science superseded and made these ancient writings irrelevant to modern man?   And while present-day intellectuals would like to think so, the void is so great in our modern understanding, that it can be said that modern man dwells in an intellectual Dark Ages -- a cocoon of Mental Ignorance -- hypnotized by the illusions of the images that he has little comprehension of -- in a world that he does not understand the true nature and reality of.  

 

 

It is impossible to even begin to comprehend the True Nature of the Scriptures, unless you understand (1) the reality that what is portrayed as the Kingdom of God is within you; (2) the Cosmology of Mind (see SoulSelf.org ); (3) the reality of the pre-existent soul that evolves to Completion over the course of many lifetimes; (4) and that all events that transpire in the present, has been directly orchestrated by the past actions of the people involved (see This World As The Living Bio-Feedback Organism).  

While a great number of scholars and modern biblical experts attempt to portray many of the biblical accounts as being based upon stories, myth and even folklore, the authors of the scriptures typically used what the people already believed and accepted -- rewrote the accounts with added names, numbers and important allegorical symbols -- in order to regenerate them into a threefold account that acted as catalysts in the minds of the more serious seeker.   Gnostics, and all Spiritual Visionaries, communicate in the meaning of names, numbers and places -- and often combinations of names in relation to places -- with added number qualifiers used to express a meaning not at all apparent to the mind or organic man whose consciousness is still carnal and earth-bound (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature).   And until man's animal nature is transformed and refined so as to manifest an environment that will sustain man's suppressed soul and spiritual nature, he will remain incapable of comprehending not only the true meaning of the scriptures, but also the very nature and reality of the life he is presently living.  In many instances, the meaning of a symbol must be understood in relation to its numerical qualifier -- which is why enlightened visionaries such as Pythagoras placed such great emphasis on the relationship of math and numbers to understanding what man sees and thinks he understands.

The disciples were portrayed as being In The House, because each of them had brought about at least the next stage of soul-birth -- and were working on various stages of spiritual-birth in the threefold process of birth. The disciples, therefore, not only understood the esoteric meaning of the parables which the multitude of people were blind to -- i.e., “Unto you [the disciples in the House] it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without [in the outer darkness of mind and being], 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) -- but they understood the esoteric nature of the illusions of this world.

In the same way that all those who have yet to bring about the next stage of soul-birth are in Jesus' words "without" -- and are therefore blind and deaf to what exists beyond the vibrational frequencies of the earth -- those who have brought about the next stage of birth and are portrayed as being In The House, are those who Jesus portrayed in the plurality of the words: "...We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness".   That Mystics, who are true Gnostics the world over, throughout all of man's history, have known the great truth to this reality of the threefold birth -- and that all of nature is imbued with a uniform allegorical reality of mind impressed into the forms of the outer world -- is the reason why the ignorant critics of the scriptures and opponents of religion are under the grave misconception that each religion copies its tenets of belief from other religions. Thus, the DVD entitled The God Who Wasn't There states: "The Jesus of the Gospels bears a striking resemblance to other ancient heroes and the figureheads of pagan savior cults" -- and yet, this statement when rightfully understood, is representative of the same profound ignorance of Nicodemus and the carnal Jews who Jesus condemned as throwing away the Key of Knowledge, and leading the people in the broad-way of their own destruction. The fact that all religions employ the same symbolism, is because the forms of nature are imbued with the lower aspects of mind that must be subdued and overcome within each person -- and this is true the world over. Of the PBS series The Bible's Buried Secrets, archaeologist William Dever of the University of Arizona stated: "It challenges the Bible's stories if you want to read them literally, and that will disturb many people." In further examining the problem: "The farther you go in the biblical text, the more difficult it is to find historical material in it," says David Ilan of the Hebrew Union College in Jerusalem. "The patriarchs go back to Genesis. Genesis is, for the most part, a compilation of myths, creation stories, things like that. And to find a historical core there is very difficult." For instance, archaeologists have found evidence that a small group of Canaanite slaves escaped from Egypt — not the mass migration described in Exodus. What both the believers and the critics have yet to understand and acknowledge, is the fact that the biblical authors who were Mystics, purposely wrote the scriptures with unhistorical assertions and events intertwined into the text, in order to inhibit the people from reading them literally or historically -- thereby forcing the intelligent seeker to look beyond what Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth", and seek the inner esoteric meaning.

All religions have a common theme and utilize the same allegorical forms. Why? Because all of nature is imbued with the allegorical symbols of mind that they represent. If a biology class in the United States teaches about the organs of the body, are they copying what is taught in England, or the biology class in France? If a school in Brazil teaches about reproduction, are they copying what is taught in Canada? In the same way that man did not invent the organs and systems of the body, neither did man invent the allegorical symbols of mind with which all of nature is imbued.

The idea that the scriptures were written by flawed mortal men, is simply not true.   The closer the person you are in this world draws nearer to their higher Soul-Self (see http://SoulSelf.org ), the more they can no longer be defined by human standards.  And a person who walked the earth 2000 years ago who had achieved Soul-Oneness through the next stage of birth, knew quantifiably more that our most esteemed modern scholars and experts.   Why?   Because when you become At-One with your higher soul-self, you not only see things as they truly are from the Source -- in contradistinction to seeing from the perspective of the illusions of Plato's Cave or the Gospel portrayal of the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- and you are also able to draw upon the cumulative knowledge and experiences of all the lives that your higher soul-self has ever lived (see Christian Reincarnation).   Add to this that all the images which man sees with his physical senses are in fact allegorical shadow-images impressed into the forms of matter -- and that from a higher soul-perspective, all things are seen and understood as they really are -- organic man who is subject to cave-illusions, would be rightly portrayed in the scriptures as blind in comparison.   It is important also to point out that modern quantum physicists have proven the validity of the what is portrayed as a shadow-world in Plato's Cave (see Science Proves Religion).  And this is why the Gospel of Thomas declares: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you".    The question must be posed: Why do you have to recognize what it in your sight?   The answer: Because all you are able to see with your physical senses is the shadow-images being danced upon the wall of Plato's Cave.  Further, because the Source of these images originates in a twelve-dimensional realm, all that you are able to perceive with your physical senses is a three-dimensional allegorical image of a higher reality that is beyond your perceptive vision and comprehension.   Bound by your organic consciousness, you imagine that the images you see are real and complete -- which they are not.   What you see are three-dimensional shadow-images of a higher twelve-dimensional reality that you lack the mental Wholeness to comprehend the true meaning of.    

The enlightened men who authored the scriptures, were able to perceive and comprehend a greater reality from the perspective of the Source of the images which is beyond the vision and comprehension of man.   Paul could not convey the spiritual meaning of the Gospel to the Christians at Corinth who he had personally taught, because they were still bound by organic perception and understanding (see http://TheThreeLies.com#mystery ).   “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) -- which could be stated: I could only speak to you as men of organic reason who can only perceive three-dimensional shadow-images.   “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) -- milk signifying the three-dimensional shadow-images of what Paul portrayed as the "testimony" of Christ -- in contradistinction to the Spiritual Meaning of the Gospel.      

Why couldn't Paul convey to the people who he had personally instructed the Spiritual Gospel Meaning?   Why can't man in his organic condition of mind perceive anything beyond the shadow-images and the limitation of three-dimensional reasoning.   Much of it has to do with the lack of development of the Intuitive spheres of mind (see The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind) -- and the grave limitation in the mindset that only what he sees is real.   In the subheading of a page I am presently working on entitled The Holographic Enigma Of The Tower Of Babel Syndrome, I examine the interaction of the Linear and Intuitive spheres of mind -- and in one place I use the quotations from the forward of The Secretes Of Mary Magdalene (quoting): 
 

...quoting from the subheading The Intuitive Mind Vs The Linear-Rational: In the introduction to the book Secrets of Mary Magdalene, Prof. Elain Pageles writes and quotes the Gospel of Philip: Simultaneously, the Gospel of Philip celebrates Mary Magdalene as manifesting the divine spirit, which this gospel calls the “virgin who came down” from heaven. When Christians spoke of Jesus “born from a virgin,” this author agrees—but refuses to take it literally. So some people, he says, take this literally to mean that Jesus’ mother became pregnant apart from any man, apart from sexual intercourse. But this, he says, is the “faith of fools” who fail to comprehend spiritual matters (although, as we note, it can be seen in the birth narratives offered in the New Testament gospels of Matthew and Luke). Instead, continues the Gospel of Philip, Jesus was born physically, just as all humans, as the son of biological parents. The difference, says the author of this gospel, that he was also “born again” in baptism--born spiritually to become the son of the Father above, and of the heavenly Mother, the Holy Spirit.   That one of the primary objectives of this life is to bring about and achieve the next stage of birth -- a non-physical birth which is allegorically portrayed as aVirgin Birth -- should be of primary importance to all people.   

In the same way that Peter as representing the (male) linear-rational spheres of mind states of the intuitive visions and wisdom of Mary Magdalene: "...These are certainly strange ideas", it is a fact that it is the lopsided development of what Einstein portrayed as the linear-rational servant that inhibits the development of the intuitive-gift -- i.e., as seen in Einstein's statement that “The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”     Without the balanced development of the intuitive, the linear-rational which only senses outwardly, arrives as a point where it becomes what can be portrayed as flat-lined -- which in turn inhibits the further development of the linear rational servant from itself maturing beyond organic limitations. 
 

Notice that in the Gospel of Phillip the belief in the virgin birth as being physical, is portrayed as the “faith of fools” who fail to comprehend spiritual matters.  And that the linear spheres of mind as allegorically represented as Peter, states of the intuitive vision and wisdom of the Intuitive spheres of mind as represented in the allegorical image of Mary Magdalene, Peter states: "...These are certainly strange ideas".   Quoting from Intuitive Mind vs Linear Rational"...biblical figures as Mary Magdalene is not the personification of an historical person -- but rather, the purification, development and raising up of the (feminine) intuitive aspects of the disciples own mind.    In the Gospels associated with Mary Magdalene it is written: “She speaks to the other disciples about Jesus and what she’s seen, and Peter says, ‘I don’t believe the Lord said these things. These are certainly strange ideas.’ And she says, ‘Well, do you think I made them up? Do you think I’m lying about the Lord?’ ”   In this allegorical representation, the linear-rational aspect of mind is represented in Peter's inability to comprehend what the feminine-intuitive as represented in the allegorical personification of Mary Magdalene reveals.   And since these intuitive visions, impressions and wisdom does not support the linear reasoning of the masculine vision of this world and Creation, in most people they are rejected." 
 

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

When Fundamentalists attempt to read the scriptures and see only the three-dimensional images, they remain blind to the true meaning.   The Intuitive spheres of mind which remain suppressed, perceive and understand the symbols in both the scriptures and the outer world, from a totally different and often opposite perspective -- and if the male/female (linear/feminine) opposites are brought together in one vision, then you have a six-dimensional vision that looks entirely different than the three-dimensional perception of the (male) linear.  And this is the beginning of the Gospel of Thomas statement:  "...and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female".   The interaction of male/female (linear/intuitive) has the potential to greatly expand the mind of the disciple as portrayed in the subheading Opening And Unlocking The Mind -- and this is especially true, when brought together in the positive environment of the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower And The Seed, is able to expand the mind and enable it to perceive and understand from a twelve-dimensional perception of reality.  What this means is that the biblical authors composed Whole Twelve Dimensional Scriptures, using the same allegorical symbols of the Language of the Soul which all of Creation is composed in, in order to present a Whole Vision of man's true reality.   And while the Fundamentalist and those bound by the linear vision only see the three-dimensional images that are employed in these Scriptural Masterpieces -- being bound by what the Gospel of Philip portrays as the “faith of fools” who fail to comprehend spiritual matters -- limited by their own lopsided linear-dominate development and perception -- the perpetual reference to those who possess the eyes to see and ears to hear, is in reference to those who can balance the Intuitive/Linear (male/female) visions of reality and perceive from a six-dimensional perception -- and have begun to expand that into the twelve-dimensional perception and understanding of all that they see. 

The scriptures are very much a text-book for escaping the limitations of the illusions of Plato's Cave.   As the seeker/disciple begins to perceive the Whole of the Scriptures, they are then able to begin to see the Whole of Creation.   And as they more and more begin to tap into the higher reality of their Soul-Self that dwells in a higher reality than this world, they are then able to begin to see all things as they really are.   The biblical authors could not compose scriptures from a twelve-dimensional linear (literal) perspective, because the linear vision of reality is only a fragment of the whole -- and it is impossible to portray the whole dimensional perspective in the limitations of a three-dimensional vision.   And what makes the problem even more complex, is the fact that the unevolved linear perspective is only one-twelfth of the whole -- and the three-dimensions of the linear vision is one-third of the one-twelfth.   Which is why the Pharisees who read the scriptures literally -- throwing away the Key of Knowledge by observing the Law in outward ritual and tradition -- were portrayed as blind guides that led their followers into the ditch of this world.  The ditch which in most instances was the only sewerage system, was full of everything vial and poisonous.

  What Is The Objective Of Life And Original Intent Of The Scriptures?   In the Sermon on the Mount at Matt 5:48 Jesus states to the people: "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect."    But since few men understand the relationship of Wholeness to that of the necessary Perfection that Jesus taught must be achieved, both the scriptures and life in this realm remain an enigma that is impossible for organic man to come to terms with.   Perfection is a condition of mind (supported by the physical body) that is brought about through achieving evolutionary Wholeness and Completion.    The evolutionary process is brought about and initiated through the "heightening and expansion of mind" beyond organic physical limitations that brings about the condition that enables the mind of the individual to become Anointed (Messiah/Christ) -- enabling such a person to see and understand all things from an Enlightened Vision of Knowing and Being.   This Enlightened Condition requires the seeking and living of Higher Spiritual Truth, and manifesting that Higher Truth in one's life in the present.   And herein lies the crux of the problem as seen in the reality that because the vast majority of mankind has little interest in seeking and living this Higher Knowledge and Truth -- or understanding why each man sees both the scriptures and the world from a very different perspective.    And unless a person first comes to understand why each man sees and understands differently from the next, no "heightening and expansion of mind"  can be brought about, and no real spiritual gain can be achieved.   

In the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter warns that when reading the scriptures contrary to the objectives and purpose of the original authors, that it is the intentional design of the authors that each person only sees what they are predisposed by their own fallible beliefs and mindset to see -- and nothing more.   Thus, Peter confirms the effect of the Tower of Babel Syndrome that plagues all of mankind.  And because of this fact, Peter warns that those who attempt to read the scriptures without first bringing about that condition within themselves that opens their perception and understanding, that they remain blind to "...the truth, but simply [see] what he wishes to find...” in the scriptures (see The Books With The Power To Deceive).     In like manner, Paul stated to the congregation of believers that he had himself taught at Corinth, that while they had received what Paul portrayed as the "testimony of Christ and him crucified" -- i.e., the quasi-historical narrative that Paul portrayed as "milk" for "babes in Christ" that he set forth for the conversion of entry-level believers -- he also warned that their organic (carnal) condition of body and mind would cause them to totally reject the spiritual meaning of the scriptures and Gospel teachings -- which included a rejection of the higher reality of the soul and what Paul portrayed as the Mysteries of the Kingdom (see Mystery Of The Gospel).   Thus, what Paul warned them was that in their present "natural" organic condition of mind, that they were incapable of comprehending the higher spiritual truths of the Gospel.   And when it is recognized that in the Gospel account, Jesus could only reveal the Core Spiritual Truths to his immediate disciples who had themselves walked the path of Spiritual Transformation -- i.e., Paul taught that sincere and faithful believers must "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV) -- then it is imperative for an intelligent seeker to recognize the reality that normal human consciousness is virtually blind to the true meaning of the scriptures and the core Gospel teachings.   Why?   Because each person's perception and understanding is fragmented in accord with the Laws they were born under in --  and so long as they lack Wholeness, they will remain under the dilemma of the Tower of Babel Syndrome.   

How can this be, you ask?  The answer is seen in the fact that the vast majority of people who read the scriptures are not sincere seekers of Truth -- but rather, they read the scriptures from an organic mindset, to confirm what they have been taught by others to believe -- which in most instances, their beliefs accommodate and support the mindset and lifestyle that is culturally convenient for them to live.   That the scriptures contain numerous passages that is in conflict with what they have come to dogmatically believe and the manner of their cultural lifestyle -- and it is for this reason as to why Jesus portrayed them as the blind who were dull of hearing, heart and mind.   And because the true meaning of the scriptures was, and remains so incomprehensible to the thinking of organic man, that it was necessary to open the minds of the disciples to the true meaning -- "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45).   

Modern Christians would like to believe that they see and understand the true meaning of the scriptures -- and yet, Paul himself dispels this great myth when he warns that the Christians who he had himself taught at Corinth were yet too carnal to understand the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Gospel and the Kingdom of God.   Thus, Paul warns the baptized and committed Christians who he portrays as too carnal to understand the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom: "Howbeit we speak wisdom among the perfect: yet a wisdom not of this world, nor of the rulers of this world, which are coming to nought" (1 Cor 2:6).    What Paul is stating is that only those who have themselves evolved and spiritually transformed their lower carnal nature, are capable of comprehending the higher wisdom of the spirit that is not of this world -- a higher spiritual wisdom that not only the faith-based Christians, but also those who Paul portrays as the rulers and authorities of this world are incapable of comprehending.     

 

  Scriptures Written By Mystics Who Were Hunted Down As Heretics: A few facts to consider is that the scriptures were written by Mystics who (1) possessed a Knowledge that the biblical authors portrayed as incomprehensible to the congregation of believers (see Mystery Of The Gospel) -- (2) whose higher spiritual vision of what they portrayed as Essential Truths, was in fact outlawed by the later Roman Church as heresy.   And that organic man rejects and distains the Light of the Truth, is why Jesus said of the Jews that they "...kill the prophets and stone those sent to you" (Luke 13:34) -- but this reality of Mystics being hunted down as heretics is equally true of all of man's religions.   With this indisputable fact of history recognized, it is important to also recognize that this rejection of those who know the Truth was of such a deep seated reality of carnal man's rejection of Higher Truth, that Jesus warned his core disciples that they would be hunted down and murdered in the name of the god which the people worshiped -- i.e., "...They will make you outcasts from the [synagogues, churches and mosques] but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God" (John 16:1-2 NAS).    (3) Which threat of death forced the biblical authors to use a special CODE which they portrayed as the Key of Knowledge -- (4) which CODE permitted them to preserve and conceal their Spiritual Truths from the eyes and understanding of the ordinary reader and believer whose Paradigm of Thinking and Mind is totally earth-bound.   And, it must be noted, that if the vast majority of Jews could perceive the the inner meaning of the Torah -- that if the Fundamentalist Christians could perceive the inner meaning of the Gospels -- and if believers, critics and supposed experts alike who only see the letter of the written word, could even for a moment perceive the true inner meaning of the very scriptures they promote or question, they would all equally condemn and reject the Great Truths that were preserved beneath the cloak of the allegorical text which Paul portrayed as "the letter that killeth" -- labeling the meaning as diabolical heresy.   Why?   Because the condition of their mind is carnal and bound by the thinking of this world -- which carnal condition of mind Paul correctly portrays as "animal consciousness" (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature).   Jesus portrayed this realm as the "outer darkness" of Mind and Being -- which, when rightly understood, is parallel to the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions.   Why?   Because this realm is a three-dimensional reality which presents allegorical shadow-images of man's twelve-dimensional higher realty (see Why Can't Truth Exist In This World?).    Which means that the images which man sees with his physical senses, are allegorical catalysts which portray a higher twelve-dimensional reality that as Paul states, men of organic consciousness would portray as "foolishness".   Moreover, because modern biblical readers don't at all understand how to apply what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge to the scriptures and unlock the true inner spiritual meaning -- and neither are they even prepared to apply the Key of Knowledge to unlock the mysteries of life itself -- they continue to promote what they outwardly condemn and reject as heresy.  

From the perspective of a long ignored reality, there are a number of important points that each person who opens the pages of the scriptures must by necessity come to terms with:  (1) In the first place, the scriptures are not historical narratives -- and when understood within their original context, they possess virtually little to no historical value whatsoever.   That is not to say that they are not written in what appears on the surface to be an historical cloak that presents the illusion of being historical -- because they are!   But this facade itself only provides a cloak to conceal the inner meaning by providing the appearance of being historical, in order to insure the preservation of the inner spiritual meaning for those few who have the "eyes to see".   Which means that those very few who understand the necessity of applying the Key of Knowledge, perceive that the scriptures must only be understood in the present tense -- and when properly understood, what the scriptures portray is the workings of the Forces and Laws within the disciple's own mind and being.    What this means is that the scriptures are purely spiritual writings -- possessing depth that organic man in his natural physical condition of mind is blind to -- and the true meaning can only be perceived by those who are themselves spiritual.   In view of the fact that nearly everyone who opens the scriptures without understanding the original objectives of the authors, all equally throw away what Jesus called the Key of Knowledge, they all remain virtually blind to the true meaning.   Why?   It is impossible to perceive and understand the true spiritual meaning of both the scriptures and all of life, without the proper application of the Key of Knowledge that unlocks the CODE -- a CODE which enables the reader to peal back the cloak of the quasi-historical narrative text, and reveal the underlying sacred meaning.   (2) Secondly, the scriptures are composed by mystics who are no longer blinded by their lower carnal nature, and would be deemed heretics if they spoke openly about what they knew and witnessed as truth -- and even then, throughout most of history these very same mystics have been perpetually hunted down and murdered as heretics.   So, with this fact in mind we must pose the question: Would the authors of the scriptures reveal sacred truths that are incomprehensible to man (see Mystery Of The Gospel) in his organic condition of mind?   Truths that the common body of people and even believers would condemn as heresy?   And this is why Jesus warned never to reveal the esoteric knowledge of TheWay to those who are immature in their spiritual walk -- i.e., "Never give what is holy to dogs or throw your pearls before pigs. Otherwise, they will trample them with their feet and then turn around and attack you" (Mat 7:6 ISV).   Of the meaning of this passage, Gill's Exposition of the Bible states: "Here the phrase is used in a metaphorical sense; and is generally understood of not delivering or communicating the holy word of God, and the truths of the Gospel, comparable to pearls, or the ordinances of it, to persons notoriously vile and sinful: to men, who being violent and furious persecutors, and impudent blasphemers, are compared to 'dogs'; or to such, who are scandalously vile, impure in their lives and conversations, and are therefore compared to swine"   And this commandment not to reveal the esoteric knowledge of the Gospel is confirmed in the Homilies of Peter's disciple Clement were Peter is quoted as stating: “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.”

Therefore, when confronting the true reality of the scriptures one must first ask themselves: Why would the authors of the scriptures openly write about mysteries that would be incomprehensible to the people?   Mysteries that would invoke the wrath of their religious and secular leaders?   To the degree that throughout most of history they have been hunted down, tortured, perhaps burnt at the stake, and murdered in a most painful manner?   (3) In truth, the authors of the scriptures were Gnostics -- and the true meaning of the word Gnosis (see Gnosis) which was declared to be heresy by the Church of Rome, is the Divine Manna or Knowledge of the Kingdom which can only be revealed directly by God -- and only to those who, because of their total and absolute faithfulness, were able to receive the Sacred Truth directly from the Source.   Therefore, the primary objective of the scriptures is to conceal and preserve esoteric truths for fellow sincere seekers both in the present, and even more importantly, in the future.  (4) It must also be understood that the objective of Mysticism is to overcome the limitations of man's physical senses -- circumvent the very limited knowledge of this world -- and position themselves to receive Gnosis (Spiritual Knowledge) directly from God -- i.e., "It is written in the Prophets: 'They will all be taught by God'" (John 6:45 NIV).    Therefore, all true seekers/disciples who walk the mystic path and are moved by a sincere desire to be  "...taught by God" must understand why the few have a greater capacity to understand, than the vast majority who Paul warns will reject the higher knowledge of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery Of The Gospel).   Thus, what makes one person different from the next -- what makes one person moved with a compelling desire to seek Truth over the dogma and limited philosophy of men.    And in coming to terms with the vast differences that set men apart from each other, it is imperative for a sincere seeker to understand the evolution of the soul over the course of many lifetimes (see Preexistent Soul).    In the words of St. Jerome (340-420): “The doctrine of transmigration (reincarnation) has been secretly taught from ancient times to small numbers of people, as a traditional truth which was not to be divulged” -- and what this means is that the vast majority of believers had absolutely no reason to even acquire this esoteric knowledge that was revealed only to the inner core of the Church (see The Secret Doctrine).  

In the same way that St. Jerome stated that the teaching on the transmigration of the soul was in fact "...a traditional truth which was not to be divulged” to the congregation of faith-based believers, the Church was in fact attacked on this point and portrayed as a "secret system" in a second century published writing known as The True Word, by Celsus, the Epicurean Philosopher and opponent of Christianity (see The Secret Doctrine).    Seventy years after its publication The True Word was still so widely circulated, that the Church Father Origen was commissioned by St. Ambrosius to refute this attack by Celsus.   When Celsus attacked the Church for being a “secret system”, teaching the congregation of faith-based believers a different doctrine than those who can be portrayed as "mature" Christians, Origen replied: “Moreover, since he frequently calls the Christian doctrine a secret system, we must confute him on this point also, since almost the entire world is better acquainted with what Christians preach than with the favorite opinions of philosophers. For who is ignorant of the statement that Jesus was born of a virgin, and that He was crucified, and that His Resurrection is an article of faith among many, and that a general judgment is announced to come, in which the wicked are to be punished according to their desserts, and the righteous to be duly rewarded?”

Fundamentally, what Origen enumerated was elementary Christian doctrine 101 -- i.e., what the Apostle Paul refers to as the “milk” -- or that basic doctrine which still exists to this very day. Origen acknowledged these doctrines -- refuted Celsus by stating that these beliefs are openly expounded as articles of Christian faith, and then Origen explained: “And yet the mystery of the Resurrection, not being understood, is made a subject of ridicule among the unbelievers. In these circumstances, to speak of the Christian doctrine as a secret system is altogether absurd. But that there should be certain doctrines, not made known to the multitude, which are after the exoteric ones having been taught, is not a peculiarity of Christianity alone, but also of philosophic systems, in which certain truths are exoteric and others are esoteric. Some of the heroes of Pythagoras were content with his ipse dixit; while others were taught in secret those doctrines which were not deemed fit to be communicated to the profane and insufficiently prepared ears. Moreover, all the mysteries that are celebrated everywhere throughout Greece and the barbarous countries, although held in secret, have no discredit thrown upon them, so that it is in vain he endeavors to calumniate the secret doctrines of Christianity, seeing that he does not correctly understand its nature”.

It is important that the reader not skim over this rather profound statement that was composed by Origen in reply to the allegations of Celsus with respect to the acknowledgement that Christianity was very much a secret system where some were taught  a very simple entry-level doctrine, than those who were more spiritually mature.  Moreover, what is imperative for the modern Christian to realize is that Origen -- whose reply to Celsus represented the position of the whole Church on these matters -- states that there is another meaning in the doctrine of the resurrection that is not understood by the multitude of believers who were of the simple faith.  In view of the fact that this allegation by Celsus was made against the church before Origen was even born, we cannot take the position that the ideas expressed in this document represent the personal beliefs of Origen.  In explanation, the doctrine of the physical resurrection of the body, says Origen, is misunderstood by the spiritually unaware, and writes that it 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 the resurrection is a spiritual event that has to do with the perfection of the soul, and is experienced in the rebirth of the disciple.  This was not a matter of belief or doctrine -- but rather, this understanding was based upon the very experiences of the Spiritual Christians who had themselves inherited the promise of the Gospel teachings!   Why would the original pre-Nicene Church instruct the multitude of believers differently than the more mature Christians?   For the same reason that Paul stated to the Christians who he had himself taught: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ).

The question must be asked:  What makes it possible for one person to understand, what is impossible for others to understand?   While it is true that in the beginning all souls were all Created equal -- it is also an undeniable fact that in the case of man, equal is not the same -- and each of us is the product of our past experiences that have developed our souls since the very dawn of Creation itself.   What this means is that the mystic authors write what man calls scriptures, for both the few that can utilize the Sacred Knowledge, so that when their own souls return to this world, the sacred writings will be preserved for them to renew and restore their spirituality.   Why?   Because the evolution  of the soul is a continuing journey that spans many lifetimes -- thus, the words of the Septuagint version of the Book of Job that is preserved in the Gospel of the Nazirenes that is not translated into English: "So through many changes must you be made perfect, as it is written in the book of Job, 'I am a wanderer, changing place after place and house after house, until I come into the city and mansion which is eternal'" (see Teachings On Soul Evolution).    Thus, as the soul migrates from one physical house to the next, they need this esoteric knowledge that has been preserved and safeguarded within the allegorical body of the scriptures, in order to remove the beam from their own eyes prior to guiding others -- and in the process, continue their soul-journey from where they left off in the previous cycle of physical life.  (5) This last primary requirement means that they must compose the body of the scriptures in such a way, that the carnal people of this world whose thinking, mindset and lifestyle remain under the control of what Jesus portrayed as the god or power of this world (the Citizen of the Far Country), will unknowingly preserve the sacred writings.   Which means that out of necessity, the Gnostic/Mystic uses the blind ignorance of the common people who remain entangled in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), to act as a (spiritual) mule or unwitting carrier -- and this preservation of a body of sacred esoteric knowledge is necessary because the Citizen of the Far Country (aka the god of this world) would induce the people under his control to destroy and/or corrupt the scriptures.  (6) It is therefore important to recognize that the biblical authors were correct in their assertion that the people of this world who remain under the dominion of what Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of the Far County, cannot understand the higher reality of the soul and the (esoteric) knowledge of the Kingdom of God -- which Paul openly states they will reject as "foolishness" (see Mystery Of The Gospel).   (7) In view of the fact that the carnal people -- even those who Paul stated were baptized and committed believers who had received the gifts of the spirit -- can not intellectually utilize the esoteric knowledge until which time they begin to "turn about" from the ways and thinking of this world -- and it is this inability to understand, along with the threat of annihilation because of the charge of heresy, which forces the authors of the scriptures to act in a way not at all understood by the congregation of entry-level faith-based believers.   In the example of Paul who references himself as an ambassador in bonds who cannot speak about what he knows openly -- openly warning the congregation of believers that he had himself taught, that if he did in fact speak to them openly about the Spiritual meaning of the Gospel, they would reject what he said as "foolishness" (see Mystery Of The Gospel).    Further, Paul explains that because it was declared from On High to be "unlawful" to reveal to the faith-based believers the true meaning of the Spiritual Gospel of Christ and the Mysteries of the Kingdom (see Gnostic Spiritual Dilemma), there are two doctrines -- i.e., one for the immature congregation of believers who are incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom -- and the other which can only be spiritually received directly from the Mind of God (Logos/Son Of God/True Prophet) by the few who have prepared themselves to receive the Divine Manna.   

It is impossible to understand the core teachings of Jesus with any real depth of spiritual substance and value, (1) without comprehending the parable of the prodigal son -- (2) without sincerely putting into practice what is conveyed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed -- (3) without understanding the higher spiritual purpose of what Jesus portrays as the Far Country which is under the power and control of the Citizen of that realm -- (4) and without understanding the effect and purpose of the journey of the lost prodigal son into the Far Country.  While it is warned throughout the Gospels that it was impossible for Jesus to teach the multitude of those who came to him to learn with any plainness of speech when he spoke -- and yet, to their own detriment, modern Christians totally ignore this warning.    Again it is openly declared that Jesus had no other alternative than to teach the people in the enigmas of allegorical parables when he taught the multitude of those who had come to hear him -- and the reason presented was twofold -- i.e., (1) in order to conceal the true meaning from those who were portrayed as being "without", and present spiritual truths at the level of the hearer -- (2) few of whom had the ability to comprehend the true meaning of both the parables and the scriptures with any depth of understanding.   The Church Father Origen said of the series of elementary doctrines such as the physical virgin birth and the physical resurrection which were designed for the multitude of believers who had not advanced themselves to the point where they would be able to comprehend their own higher soul-reality and the Mystery Of The Gospel, that what Paul portrayed as the "testimony" of Christ 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”  (see Origen, Contra Celsum).   And while the True meaning of both the scriptures and the teachings would be incomprehensible to the faith-based hearers of the Gospels, for their own eventual advancement as well as the perseveration of the esoteric knowledge that could only be revealed to the inner core of Jesus' disciples -- Paul initiated congregations of what can only be portrayed as a type of mule -- or, unwitting carriers of this body of concealed esoteric knowledge.   And the key to understanding what Paul portrayed as the "Testimony" of Christ -- vs the Mysteries of the Gospel -- is seen in the fact that according to Paul, the congregation of faith-based believers were too carnal and undeveloped in their understanding of higher spiritual reality, to comprehend the spiritual nature of the scriptures (see Mystery Of The Gospel).    Moreover, it was not a matter of teaching what Paul portrayed as the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Gospel in a plainer language -- but rather, it remains impossible to convey this higher soul and spiritual reality in the words and understanding of mankind.   What Paul stated was this higher wisdom that Paul himself warned was incomprehensible to man in his organic state of mind, could only be received with Direct Spiritual Contact and Interaction with that principle which has come to be known as the Son of God or True Prophet (see True Prophet).    Thus, this higher spiritual wisdom could not be found in a book -- neither could it be taught by another person -- and could only be received by seeking to enter through what Jesus portrayed as the "narrow strait gate" in order to enter the Inner Kingdom, and learn directly from the True Prophet -- which is the true spiritual objective of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.    But to accomplish this required change and transformation as stated by Paul:  "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV).

While this portrayal of man's higher spiritual reality may on the surface appear to be outlandish to the congregation of faith-based believers who have been spiritually disenfranchised by the dogma of pagan Rome, it can also be said that these same shocked believers have brought this outlandish reality upon themselves.   If they had not themselves ignored the warning of Paul -- i.e., "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world..." (Col 2:8 NIV) -- then their thinking, mindset and lifestyle would not be estranged from their own higher soul and true spiritual reality.   And in the same way that in the parable of the prodigal son, the son became totally controlled by the "Citizen ...of the Far Country", the vast majority of the people of this world have been taken "...captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world..." -- rendering them spiritually impotent and incapable of releasing themselves from the shackles of ignorance which Paul portrays as the "...basic principles of this world...".   And what was true in the time of Paul, remains just as true this very day.    And when Paul's words are properly understood, what he was stating was that while the carnal faith-based congregation of believers make excellent mules who will safeguard and preserve what is incomprehensible to their unprepared and untransformed human understanding -- Paul confirmed that the authors of the scriptures composed their sacred writings so that the carnal (faith-based) mules will carry and promote these writings, without suspecting what is concealed within the body of the written text. 

The vast majority of faith-based believers remain apathetic to the forces of conflict that immerses them.   During WWII various codes were developed that enabled communications to be made right under the nose of the enemy.   And when the Art of War is understood, such systems have always been in use throughout all the conflicts of man.   But when it is realized that war is not always fought with traditional weapons -- and when it is recognized that those who the Essenes portrayed as the sons of darkness, have always worked with the secular governments of this world to suppress the wisdom and knowledge of the Sons of Light -- then truly rational and intelligent people must begin to recognize that the scriptures are written in a code that both preserves and conceals the Truth from the perception and understanding of the charlatan clergy such as the Pharisees who opposed Jesus, and the despot rulers who they have an alliance with the impostor shepherds who have perpetually hunted down the Sons of Light as heretics -- i.e., truly spiritual souls who by their very manifestation of Light, are deemed enemies of both the church and state of this world.     

When rightly understood, the variety of liberal and conservative faith-based blind believers are merely rowers on opposite sides of the same boat which they share with the Atheists -- neither of whom possess any understanding of the scriptures because they each have thrown away what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge.   But the true victims and collateral damage in the conflict between blind-believers and blind-unbelievers, is the people who have been deprived of the essential knowledge that lies concealed beneath the coded body of the text of the scriptures.   And when it is recognized that the pseudo-intellectuals on both sides of the equation of believers and unbelievers remain absolutely clueless as to the great source of knowledge that the proper use of the Key of Knowledge opens up and reveals to the user, the countless lives of suffering that the prodigal sons and daughters have endured upon the face of the earth, is all the fault of the prevailing cloak of profound ignorance that has consumed mankind who lacks this essential knowledge that lies hidden away as a lost treasure.   

If the world wants peace, true freedom, equality and prosperity for all people  -- along with the ability to truly Know God by walking with their Heavenly Father in the manner that Adam walked in the proverbial Garden of Eden -- then they must seek out this essential knowledge that has been preserved and left to mankind by the Sons of Light, in order to bring about the proverbial End Times within themselves -- in the manner envisioned by the biblical authors who being themselves wise to the art of war, used the sons of darkness as mules to preserve and protect this essential knowledge that has the power to restore the lost prodigal sons and daughters to the Kingdom which they seek to return to (see Gate Of Eden).    

If today's Evangelical Christians had the eyes to see the true meaning of the scriptures that lies beneath the cloak of the written text, they would literally be in shock and awe.   Many of the concepts which they ardently condemn and reject in others, lie concealed within the cloak of the allegorical text beyond their perception and ability to comprehend.   Why?  Because they have permitted themselves to be taken "...captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world..." -- and this very limited human wisdom and knowledge has rendered them earth-bound in their thinking, and spiritually sterile.     If the question is raised as to how Paul could make such a broad statement -- portraying all the wisdom of this world as insufficient and unenlightened -- it is based upon the reality that Jesus portrayed this world as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- a reality that Plato portrayed as the Cave of Illusions (see Plato's Cave).    And that once understood, there is a factual reason why the wisdom of this world is always limited and insufficient -- and can always be portrayed in the words: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" (Prov 14:12) 

  Condition Of Mind: As is documented at this link (see Mystery Of The Gospel), Paul warned that if the congregation of faith-based believers were exposed to the esoteric teachings on the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom, they would reject these concepts and teachings as utter "foolishness"!!!    Yet, as these faith-based believers begin to spiritually mature, they will need this body of concealed knowledge to advance beyond the elementary stages.   Therefore, for the good of the faith-based congregations, the Gospel had to be presented to them in such a manner that they could only understand in accord with their own very elementary level of advancement -- and the more they progressed in TheWay, the greater vision and understanding they would then be able to eventually possess.   And thus, Jesus taught in parables, so that those few who possessed the capacity to understand, would receive the instruction that the multitudes were incapable of comprehending.   And if we ask Why?   In the parable of the Sower and the Seed ( http://SowerAndSeed.com ), what is portrayed above as the necessary condition of mind, is taken one step further -- as in the rungs of the proverbial Jacob's Ladder.   In the parable, those who bring forth what is portrayed as sixtyfold, can perceive and understand a higher perception and understanding of what Paul calls the Mysteries of the Kingdom, than those who have brought forth thirtyfold -- and ultimately the ones who have brought forth what is portrayed as "one hundredfold", can perceive and understand what the rest of mankind remains totally blind to.   Yet, the parable of the Sower and the Seed also warns that those who have not overcome the limits of their human carnal nature, and have failed to bring about the process of expansion of mind and being by becoming the "good ground", these people cannot even begin to understand anything of any true sustenance and spiritual value.    Thus, the warning of Jesus to those who ignore what the parable of the Sower and the Seed states:  “Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13 KJV) -- or, in the wording of a the modern language New Living Translation: “But if you can’t understand this story, how will you understand all the others I am going to tell?”    That the vast majority of believers, as well as the Gospel critics, all fail to understand the true spiritual meaning of the Bible, is because they ignore what this parable states to them.

When Paul makes reference to the inability of the faith-based believers to understand the true spiritual nature and "mystery" of the Gospel, we must pose the question: What is the meaning of the word "mystery"?   Thayer's Lexicon states that it is a "hidden thing, secret, mystery... confided only to the initiated and not to ordinary mortals.  A hidden or secret thing, not obvious to the understanding.  Of God: The secret counsels which govern God in dealing with the righteous, which are hidden from ungodly and wicked men... in rabinic writings, it denotes the mystic or hidden sense of an Old Testament saying..."   Therefore, what Paul is stating is that spiritual knowledge (Gnosis) belongs only to those who are themselves spiritual.   Why?   Not because anyone desires to conceal this esoteric knowledge -- but rather, the organic facilities of mind associated with the limitations of the physical body, are simply incapable of perceiving man's own higher reality of soul and spirit.   From an organic human perspective, it is not a matter of a more clarified explanation -- but rather, there is no such thing as any explanation to convey to organic man what is incomprehensible to his very limited mind and being.   From the perspective of the allegory of the Tower of Babel: The structure that permits the earth to reach into the expanse of the heavens, cannot be built with earth-matter -- but must be built upon the  transformation of the physical body and consciousness as stated by Paul:  "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV).

When Jesus said of his disciples: “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12 NIV) -- that word translated secret, is the same word translated mystery, and makes reference to an esoteric knowledge that is beyond man's organic comprehension.   Yet, in a state of spiritual denial, the modern Church attempts to ignore the implications of what these words convey.    In explanation of the above words of Jesus, the Wycliffe Commentary writes that: “…the initiate was instructed in the esoteric teaching... which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...” 

If, as openly stated above, it is true that Jesus taught initiates differently than the multitude of people who he portrayed as being "...outside", then a true seeker must conclude that every article of faith promoted by the Church today, would have to be totally re-evaluated.    Thus the question: What was Jesus stating with respect to why he spoke in parables?   To ignore this question, is to reject the whole foundational objective and revelation of the Bible.   Jesus was stating that only those who become separate from the thinking and ways of this world, and became true disciples of Messiah/Christ, are able to perceive and understand the secrets of the Kingdom of God -- and in the Greek language, this sacred Knowledge is called Gnosis.   And by the very meaning of the word that is being presented that cannot be revealed "...to ordinary mortals.  A hidden or secret thing, not obvious to the understanding" -- it is of the utmost importance to recognize that what is being conveyed is the fact that "...spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”.   Why?   Because man in his organic or "natural" condition of mind, has yet to develop the facilities of mind necessary to receive and comprehend this higher spiritual knowledge that the biblical authors are making reference to.    And this fact of human life that everyone must eventually come to terms with, is demonstrated in the Gospel of Thomas in the saying: (17) Jesus said, "I shall give you what no eye has seen and what no ear has heard and what no hand has touched and what has never occurred to the human mind."   It is not that either Jesus or the disciples wanted to hide or conceal higher spiritual facts and realities from anyone -- but rather, the organic human mind which is limited by the consciousness and vibratory spectrum of thought of the physical body, simply is incapable of comprehending any thoughts, impressions and realities beyond what the organic human body/mind will accommodate, without evolving through the process of transformation that was -- and remains -- the primary objective of the Gospel message and teachings.   Jesus came to lead the lost prodigal sons and daughters into the kingdom -- but for the inner "narrow strait gate" to open, the body and physical mind must become what is allegorically portrayed as the Final Temple

In analyzing what the Thayer's Lexicon is stating above:  Because the people are not yet initiates into the knowledge that is beyond the understanding of "...ordinary mortals"  --   secret knowledge that is "...not obvious to the understanding"  -- knowledge that is impossible to be revealed in the written text of the scriptures -- knowledge that Paul, as "...an ambassador in bonds", cannot speak openly about to the congregation of believers who he himself taught -- Paul portrays the congregation of believers as "babes in Christ".    Again, to the Colossians Paul asks for their prayers that "...God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak" (see Col 5:3-4).    Thus, these mysteries of the Gospel that Paul portrays as beyond the comprehension of believers of a "natural" mind, because these believers of the Gospel will look upon and reject esoteric spiritual concepts as utter "foolishness" (1 Cor 2:14) -- cannot be revealed in man's spoken or written words -- but only when "...God ...opens ...a door of utterance, to [reveal] the mystery of Christ" -- a knowledge that cannot be revealed "...to ordinary mortals.  A hidden or secret thing, not obvious to the understanding"   -- including  "...the mystic or hidden sense of " a biblical story.    And while God wants all the lost prodigal sons and daughters to receive the sacred knowledge which in the Thayer's Lexicon it states is "...not obvious to the understanding [of] ...ordinary mortals" -- because the human earthly nature must be evolved, this sacred knowledge can only be perceived and comprehended by those who have prepared themselves to receive it.

 

 

  In The House -- Taught In Parables -- The Inner Kingdom & The Key Of Knowledge: In not understanding the use of parables in the Gospels -- and how the parables are allegorical learning models within the allegorical scriptures themselves -- and without understanding The One Source of True Interpretation for both the parables, and the Gospel accounts -- that it will be impossible to comprehend the meaning of the scriptures with any true depth of understanding.   And when the scriptures are properly understood, their very purpose is to assist the seeker/disciple in finding The One Source of True Interpretation -- because all other interpretations is nothing more than manmade worthless (church) dogma that is promoted by misguided believers and unbelievers.    Why?   Because the opening of the Gospel of Thomas is as relevant to that scripture, as it is all scriptures -- i.e., "These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus ...And he said, Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death. 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.  ...Jesus said, If those who lead you say to you, 'See, the kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty."   Once the scriptures are properly understood, they are very much the Key of Knowledge that if properly turned within and used to open the inner "narrow strait gate", they will enable the seeker to learn directly from the One True Teacher, and bestow upon such a sincere disciple the Life that the Gospels promise to the faithful believer.    And even those who claim to believe, and yet fail to fulfill the spiritual objective of the Gospels within themselves, are those who walk upon the broad-way of self destruction -- i.e., "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).   And when Jesus was asked directly when the Kingdom of God would come upon the earth as Jews and Christians believe, Jesus said it would never come upon the earth, because it is within us all: "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).   That modern Christians walk the broad-way of self-destruction, is because long ago the Church threw away the  Key of Knowledge in the manner of the carnal Jews -- and thus, what was said of the Jews then, is true of the Christians today: "How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering" (Luke 11:52). 

Mankind has freewill -- and as the prodigal sons who have each emerged out of the Kingdom to travail in this world which Jesus portrayed as the Far Country -- each of the lost sons and daughters of the Kingdom must return of their own volition and desire.   That each has the innate power to return, is in fact the very purpose and objective of the scriptures -- i.e., to be used as the Key of Knowledge when each individual desires to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination ( http://GateOfEden.com ).    That the leaders among the Jews had alienated themselves from the Inner Kingdom -- and they attempted to observe the scriptures in outward ritual and tradition -- is the very reason why Jesus condemned them as heretics who hid the Key of Knowledge from the people, and in their carnal interpretations they "...prevent others from entering".   Because the carnal Jews were under the control of what Jesus portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son as the "Citizen ...of the Far Country", they remained blind to the Inner Kingdom and the true meaning of the scriptures -- i.e., "...but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand".    And the fact that those who were the leaders of the people were blind to the Kingdom, and unable to spiritually hear and understand, made it impossible to even begin to compose scriptures where the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom were more plainly presented to the reader.    As Paul warned, if the people who were under the control of the "Citizen ...of the Far Country", were to even be told about the Mysteries of the Kingdom, they would immediately reject these teachings as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery Of The Gospel).    And that this inability to present the esoteric truths of the Gospel remains today, is the reason why the modern congregation of Christian believers remain in subjugation to the "Citizen ...of the Far Country".

Not to understand the meaning of the term "In The House", and to have thrown away the  Key of Knowledge, is to remain totally ignorant of the spiritual meaning of the Gospels and the teachings of TheWay.   In fact, the reality of the term being In The House was and is so important, that the Gospel of the Nazirenes (chapter 19:10) states: "There is a house made without hands, seek that you may dwell therein."  If the believer is truly faithful to the Living  Word -- lives in accordance with the Commandments of the Royal Law of the Most High -- seeks to acquire Genuine Knowledge directly from the Son of God -- and sincerely walks in The Way -- then they will pass through the "narrow way" and the "straight gate" into the Kingdom will open to them.

When the disciples who dwelled In The House, asked Jesus why he taught the multitude of people in the enigma of parables -- wherein, each person's interpretation and understanding was in accord with their own mindset and thinking -- Jesus replied to his disciples: "Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest haply they should turn again, and it should be forgiven them" (Mark 4:11-12 ASV) -- and the term, "...lest haply they should turn again", is stated in reference to the Kingdom that can only be found within, and the presence of the One Teacher therein.   

  What Jesus Do You See? What is clear is that the disciples who were portrayed as being In The House, were taught entirely different than the common people who were portrayed as being "outside".   In the Gospel of John the question was posed to Jesus as to why he would not show himself to the people who were portrayed as being "outside" -- i.e., the people whose mind and thinking is controlled by the power/god of this world: "Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?" (John 14:22 NIV).   While this rather profound statement was part of a much larger message prior to being edited and removed by the later Gentile Church (see BibleCorruption.com ), even the statement should provoke the question: How could this be said?  Didn't everyone see Jesus?  And what this means is exactly what is presented in the Gospel of Philip in the statement that people can only perceive the Jesus that is in accord with their own Condition.   The reality that has been preserved in the Gospel of Philip reads: "Jesus took them all by stealth, for he did not appear as he was, but in the manner in which they would be able to see him. He appeared to them all. He appeared to the great as great. He appeared to the small as small. He appeared to the angels as an angel, and to men as a man. Because of this, his word hid itself from everyone. Some indeed saw him, thinking that they were seeing themselves, but when he appeared to his disciples in glory on the mount, he was not small. He became great, but he made the disciples great, that they might be able to see him in his greatness."  

What Judas (not Iscariot) was stating is that the Jesus which the disciples saw and heard, was an entirely different Jesus than what the multitudes who are portrayed as being "without", saw and heard.   And we can observe this same reality in the Fundamentalists who promote their dogma that the scriptures are historical accounts -- when in fact they are spiritual accounts that utilize a quasi-historical cloak to reveal "by stealth", the Laws, Forces and the Cosmology of Mind and Being that the sincere seeker needs to possess the knowledge of to bring about and initiate their own spiritual regeneration and birth.  In the same way that the Gospel states that "...he made the disciples great, that they might be able to see him in his greatness."

Taking this great Truth one step further, those of a "natural" organic mind are incapable of perceiving and comprehending the higher reality of the soul and what the biblical authors portray as the Mysteries of the Kingdom, because of their own (carnal) Condition -- i.e., as stated in the Gospel of Thomas: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest."    The version that was in the Library that was inadvertently destroyed states: Greek POxy 5) Jesus said: "Recognize what is before your face and that which is hidden from the you will be revealed to you. For there is nothing hidden which shall not be made manifest, nor buried which shall not be raised."   The Gospels were written to serve the needs of a great multitude of people at greatly varying levels of Condition of mind. Spiritually immature readers and believers see nothing more than an historical narrative which Paul portrays as the "testimony" of Christ. And as a believer becomes a seeker, and a seeker becomes a true disciple, they begin to see what those who do not have the eyes to see are blind to.

In answering this question posed by Judas as to why the Christ that they saw could not be revealed or seen by the people of this world, the focus was on the necessity of obeying Jesus' Commands as presented in the Gospel: "Jesus replied, If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me" (John 14:23-24 NIV).   And perhaps even more important is the statement: "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now" (John 16:12 KJV). 
If Jesus was making reference to himself as God Incarnate, or the necessity to say their Jesus-prayer to acquire salvation in the manner of modern Church dogma, then why would he convey to them that they were not yet mature enough to bear the higher knowledge of the Gospel?   In his Epistle to the Trallaus the first century elder Ignatius speaks of the Mysteries of the Gospel and the Kingdom, and writes: “Might I not write to you things more full of mystery?  But I fear to do so, lest I should inflict injury on you who are babes.  Pardon me in this respect, lest, as not being able to receive their weighty import, ye should be strangled by them”.  The only way that Ignatius could have written these words, was if he, himself, understood what was beyond the comprehension of the organic mind of the believers of the simple faith.   And while he states that he had himself progressed to the point where he understood what was incomprehensible to the organic mind of man, he also confesses that though he is aware of the minor mysteries, he is not yet “by any means perfect, nor am I such a disciple as Paul or Peter”.      If Ignatius or the other early Church Fathers who knew the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God were with us today, what profound mystery could they speak regarding the true teachings of Jesus that believers today would be “strangled by them” To the degree that Paul proclaimed to the Christians at Corinth: “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 NAS).   Thus, these believers could only be taught the most basic exoteric doctrine of a quasi-historical allegorical account of Jesus Christ and him crucified (1 Cor 2:2), because they were not yet spiritual men -- but rather, they were men of flesh and still very much “babes in Christ”.   Paul then explains that: “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able” (1 Cor 3:2 NAS).  

A man of true biblical insight and intellect would want to know why mankind in his organic condition, would reject what Paul calls the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of God as absolute utter "foolishness"???   To the degree that when Paul states that he was "..caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor 12:4-5 NKJ) -- an intelligent seeker of Truth would immediately question as to why "...it is not lawful for a man to utter" what a Disciple who enters the Kingdom experiences?   When Paul warns the baptized and committed Christians at Corinth who he, himself, originally instructed, that they were yet to carnal in their understanding to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospel -- which is often referred to as the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God -- he conveyed to them the reality that they would judge and even condemn this higher reality of the Spirit as absolute "foolishness" -- i.e., “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).    Thus, it is imperative to ask the question: What is the "natural man"?     The condition of mankind that Paul is making reference to, would just as well be portrayed as "organic" -- or, of the physical body.   The "natural man" , is the "organic" human being.

What Jesus stated was of such a profound importance to comprehend if the seeker/disciple was to begin to understand the true meaning of the scriptures as set forth in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, that Jesus then warned: "And he saith unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how shall ye know all the parables?" (Mark 4:13 ASV).    And what this means is that if you fail to understand the meaning of the parable of the Sower and the Seed, and put its teachings into practice in your daily lives, that it will be impossible for you to understand any part of the spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings.   And if you fail to understand the meaning of the term "In The House", and the difference in the reality of those who Jesus portrayed in the words: "...but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand" -- that you will dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- walking upon what Jesus portrayed as the "broad-way of self-destruction" (Matt 7:13-14). 

To become what is conveyed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed as the "good ground", it is absolutely necessary to live in strict accord with the Gospel Teachings.  Which transformation of self into the "good ground" creates within self the necessary environment for the the Logos to In-Dwell -- i.e., "Jesus replied, If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me" (John 14:23-24 NIV).    But this becomes impossible for those who believe in accord with the dogma and traditions of men, and live a lifestyle in accord with the ways of this world.    Which is the basis of the question presented to Jesus: "Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?" (John 14:22 NIV).    Again, of which it is stated that the Logos/Son of God will come and In-Dwell within those who have left behind the mindset and ways of this world, and seek to live the necessary Consecrated Life in TheWay -- i.e., "Jesus replied, If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me" (John 14:23-24 NIV).    Which then enables the seeker/disciple to enter the House with the Lord in the Inner Kingdom -- i.e.,  "There is a house made without hands, seek that you may dwell therein" (Gospel of the Nazirenes chapter 19:10)

The leaders among the carnal Jews who interpreted the scriptures in outward ritual and tradition, had thrown away the Key of Knowledge -- and as such, had alienated themselves from the Inner Kingdom, and were as Jesus portrayed them as "blind guides" who were leading the people in the wrong direction.    When Jesus portrayed them as being "without" -- i.e., "...but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables" -- this was a similar condition expressed in the spiritual reality that they existed either in what Jesus portrayed as The Prison, or in the  "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).    And because the leaders of the Jews expressed the scriptures in outward ritual and tradition, and failed to use them as the  Key of Knowledge, was the reason why they were blind guides who could "...not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand" -- and this remains true of the congregation of Christian who continue to embrace the way of the carnal Jews today. 

The Gospel accounts state that Jesus only spoke to the multitude of hearers in the enigma of parables, it is imperative that we recognize that Jesus did not, and could not, speak and teach plainly to those who are portrayed as being "without" the House -- i.e.,  "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34 NKJV).    The word translated "explained", in the phrase "And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples", literally translated from the Greek into English means to "unloose or untie" -- i.e., what has been "bound or sealed up" -- and "what is obscure and hard to understand" (from Thayer's Greek Lexicon).   And the word translated secret or mystery, makes reference to an esoteric knowledge that can only be revealed spiritually to one who is "in the House", because it is beyond the organic comprehension of those who are portrayed as being "without", or "outside" the House.    The term "open and unloose" the mind, is was also used in the Gospel as the path to entering the Inner Kingdom (see Open & Unloose The Mind).

With respect to the reality of those who are portrayed in the Gospels as being "without", in contradistinction to those who are said to be In The House, the quotation of the early Church Father Origen represents an excellent portrayal of the reality of mind and being that is presented in these words of Jesus -- wherein, Origen writes in reply to the allegations of Celsus that the Church is a secret system (see The Secret Doctrine): “I have not yet spoken of the observances of all that is written in the gospel, each one of which contains much doctrine difficult to be understood, not merely by the multitude, but even by certain of the more intelligent, including a very profound explanation of the parables, which Jesus delivered to 'those without' while reserving the exhibition of their full meaning for those who have passed beyond the stage of exoteric teachings, and who came to him privately in the house. And when he comes to understand it, he will admire the reason why some are said to be without, and others in the house”.

So we must ask: By what means did the disciples receive this esoteric knowledge that was beyond the comprehension of organic man who was portrayed as being "without" -- i.e., Gnosis.  But what is Gnosis -- and how does a person receive this Sacred Knowledge of the Kingdom directly from God?   In a state of spiritual denial, the modern Church attempts to ignore the implications of what these words convey.    In fact, few Christians even understand what a parable is.   Moreover, they can't even begin to come to terms with the reality of why one man perceives and comprehends a deeper meaning of a parable, while the multitude of hearers remain oblivious to what has been portrayed as a secret meaning that only a very few can receive.   And while some would like to promote the idea that it is an illustration where a conceptual reality is simplified, just the opposite is factually true.   Moreover, not only is the words portrayed a body of secret knowledge presented throughout the Gospels, but reference is openly made to the word mystery as used in Romans -- i.e., "according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began" -- and in explanation of the above words of Jesus with respect to the use of parables as a means to teach the people, the Wycliffe Bible Commentary writes that: “…the initiate was instructed in the esoteric teaching... which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”    If, as openly stated above, it is true that the disciples received instruction that was totally different than what was revealed to the multitude of people who Jesus portrayed as being "...outside", then a true seeker must conclude that every article of faith promoted by the Church today, would have to be totally re-evaluated.    Thus the question: What was Jesus stating with respect to why he spoke in parables?   To ignore this question, is to reject the whole foundational objective and revelation of the Bible.   Jesus was stating that only those who become separate and freed from the limited thinking and carnal ways of this world, and became true disciples of Messiah/Christ, are able to perceive and understand the secrets of the Kingdom of God -- and in the Greek language, this sacred Knowledge is called Gnosis.

  The Parabolic Bottom Line: Upon hearing the enigmatic parables that Jesus reportedly taught in, each of the people who heard the parabolic accounts would derive a different understanding as to the meaning of what was being taught.   Thus, the Wycliffe Commentary states that "...the purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without".   But what does this mean?    Those listeners who dwelt in what Jesus portrayed as The Prison or the Outer Darkness, heard nothing more than the parabolic accounts that they each derived a different meaning of.    And in contradistinction, those who are portrayed as being "In The House", were each able to discern esoteric spiritual truths in accord with their spiritual condition as defined in the parable of the Sower and the Seed -- spiritual truths that the multitude of hearers remained totally deaf to.   And when this higher spiritual reality is understood, it is the basis of Jesus' warning that if a person does not understand what was taught and revealed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, then it will remain impossible for them to understand anything -- i.e., "And he saith unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how shall ye know all the parables?" (Mark 4:13 ASV).    And what this means is exactly what the Wycliffe Bible Commentary states with respect to the reality that "...in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”  -- and in the parable of the Sower and the Seed this spiritual condition that enabled the hearer or reader of the parable to understand is expressed in the words:  "...But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred." 

If the vast majority of those who heard the parables only understood in accord with their organic human reasoning, then it is of the utmost importance to begin to understand the True Source of the Spiritual Truths that were only perceived by the few who were representative of what Jesus portrayed as the "good ground" -- i.e., the sincere seekers of Truth and disciples of TheWay.    The Primary Objective of the teachings of TheWay was to connect the disciple within his own mind and being, with what Jesus portrayed as the One Teacher -- which the disciples called The True Prophet -- who is the ONLY SOURCE of Truth in this world.    And in understanding these important truths, is in fact the very purpose of the Gospel teachings.   In the writings of his disciple Clement the Apostle Peter is quoted as explaining with respect to the One Teacher and True Prophet that  "...therefore I advise not only wise men, but indeed all men who have a desire of knowing what is advantageous to them, that they seek after the true Prophet; for it is He alone who knoweth all things, and who knoweth what and how every man is seeking. For He is within the mind of every one of us, but in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative; but He works in those who seek after that which is profitable to their souls, and kindles in them the light of knowledge. Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other. (see The True Prophet).   Thus, those hearers of the parables who are portrayed as NOT being the "good ground" (see the Sower and the Seed), only heard and understood the meaning in accord with their organic human reasoning.   Why?   They are thus portrayed in the words:  "...but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand".    And those who are portrayed as the "good ground", are those who hear and understand in accord with their spiritual condition -- i.e.,  "...But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred."  And what was the Source of this more enlightened instruction that bestowed a higher spiritual understanding upon the few?   The True Prophet "...is within the mind of every one of us, but in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative; but He works in those who seek after that which is profitable to their souls, and kindles in them the light of knowledge.  And this is why it is stated in the Epistle of James that "faith without actions is dead"!!!     And what is the actions being referenced?   The work on self that transforms the seeker through the sequences portrayed in the words: "...some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred."

   The Tower Of Babel And The Tree Of Life:  If it is true that the Logos/Son of God dwells within us at the very Core of our mind and being, then the question should be posed as to why organic man cannot connect with the Essence of God within us?  

 

 

 

 

 

  Flawed Human Linear Reasoning: Thus, those who are portrayed as achieving thirtyfold and sixtyfold, are those who are the "good ground" that are in the process of entering into The House with the One Teacher and True Prophet.   Those who are portrayed as having achieved a hundredfold, are those who dwell "In The House" -- while the rest of the hearers were those who were portrayed as being "without" and under the control of the "Citizen ...of the Far Country".    And that human reasoning, the quasi-religious dogma of man's religions and his philosophical schools of thought, are always in error by virtue of their blindness to the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God -- which reality Paul presented in the words: "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world..." (Col 2:8 NIV).    And the degree that the seeker of Truth is to abandon and reject the dogmatic and philosophical reasoning of this world, is further presented in the words of the Apostle Peter who is quoted in the writings of his disciple Clement: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without". (see The Spiritual Disenfranchisement Of The Mind).   

In making reference to The True Prophet who Jesus portrayed as the One Teacher, Peter warns that: "Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples”.   If we ask the question: What is being said to the believer who desires to be faithful to the Gospel Teachings?   In the same way that the believer is commanded to seek out the One Teacher, and the commandment that "...when the law of God (scriptures) is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind" -- it is being stated that there is only One Source of Truth -- and that the wisdom of man will misguide the seeker.   By design, human reasoning is incapable of understanding the true meaning of the scriptures -- i.e., "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind."   And neither should you listen to other men's gravely flawed interpretations of the scriptures -- i.e., "...For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".   Jesus taught that there is only ONE Source of Truth, and the disciple/seeker must learn directly from that One Teacher.   And thus, these words which are representative of the core Gospel teachings, are inconceivable to the modern faith-based believer who is divided and disenfranchised from the very essence and objectives of the Gospel teachings -- overwhelmed and anchored to a carnal mindset that is of the "outer darkness" -- spiritually disenfranchised by innumerable manmade opinions, factions and sects which totally alienate the believer from the Truth and the Kingdom.

In the long ignored Epistle of Peter and James it is warned that if the more spiritual scriptures that contained the more pure esoteric knowledge were to became lost and corrupted as the Church had done to the scriptures they had been given, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error" (see Most Important Scriptures Never Given To The Church).   And that the modern Church does not at all understand how and why they have remained in the Spiritual Diaspora of this world -- i.e., the Far Country -- totally blind and ignorant to the Inner Kingdom and the reality of the One Teacher that Jesus said was the Source of all Truth.   Why?   Because the leaders of the congregation of Christian believers threw away the Key of Knowledge in the manner that the carnal Jews did before them.   And that by ignoring the warning of Paul when he stated that the congregation of believers would reject the esoteric knowledge of the teachings of TheWay as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery Of The Gospel), they remained too carnal to enter "In The House", and receive the essential teachings directly from the One Source and Teacher.    

Thus, in the Gospel of Thomas 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, it is impossible for those who lack an understanding of the cosmology of their own minds, to even begin to understand why Jesus taught in parables -- i.e., that each person could only hear and understand in accord with their own spiritual condition.   Why?   Because if each person's consciousness and depth of mind is limited to the organic sphere of this earth -- and all people were equal in their perception and comprehension -- then teaching in parables would in fact be a worthless endeavor.   But that each of us is not only different -- but is in fact born different -- and some have the innate ability to be awakened to a higher reality that the majority of people remain totally oblivious to -- is the missing link to the equation of why Jesus taught the multitudes only in parables -- i.e., allegorical accounts that utilize Universal Symbols of Mind that have the power to act as a catalyst that can connect that part of us that is conscious in this world, with the higher consciousness of our soul-self that is not manifest in this world -- and Ultimately, the Mind of God which man portrays as the Logos.    What this means is that the more advanced a soul is -- regardless of the fact that they don't remember their more distant past prior to this life -- the more that person is able to reach beyond the barrier of their physical consciousness and tap into the higher reality of the soul and ultimately, the indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet -- and that both the parable and the allegorical scriptures act as a catalyst that connects the person to the inner higher reality that those who dwell in the "outer darkness" remain totally oblivious to, is representative of the very purpose and spiritual objective of the scriptures.

The only reason why Jesus could teach in parables is presented in the words of the early Church Father Origen when he wrote: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).    And what this means is that only those souls who in their past lives had spiritually advanced themselves, were in this life  "...strengthened by the victories" which, in accord with their spiritual condition, enabled them to perceive and comprehend the true spiritual meaning of the parables (see Early Church On PreDestination).    And when Jesus taught in parables, those people in the crowd of hearers who had advanced themselves in the past lives their soul had lived, were the ones who became spiritually awakened as to the esoteric meaning of the parable.   In the words of Thayer's Lexicon: the parable revealed "...A hidden or secret thing, not obvious to the understanding.  Of God: The secret counsels which govern God in dealing with the righteous, which are hidden from ungodly and wicked men..." -- and this revelation that could only be received by those who were themselves righteous, was in accord with the spiritual condition that had been achieved in the past lives of each of those who Jesus taught.   Thus, Origen further explains that: “For God the Creator makes a certain vessel unto honor, and other vessels to dishonor; but that vessel which has cleansed itself from all impurity He makes a vessel unto honor, while that which has stained itself with the filth of vice He makes a vessel unto dishonor. The conclusion from which, accordingly, is this, that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor" (see Early Church On PreDestination).  Those people who Origen portrays as vessels of honor, were the few who could grasp the spiritual meaning of the allegorical parable with the necessary depth of comprehension that the multitude of hearers were blind and deaf to.   And that this greater depth of self that lies beneath the organic limits of the physical body-vessel, is a reality that is only understood by those who fulfill the teaching in the Gospel of Thomas: "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world".    

If, as openly stated above, it is true that Jesus taught those who are portrayed as initiates very differently than the multitude of people who he spoke of as being "...outside", then a true seeker must conclude that every article of faith promoted by the Church today, would have to be totally re-evaluated.    Thus, the question: What is the scriptures conveying to the reader with respect to why it is portrayed that Jesus only spoke to the people in parables?   To ignore this question in the manner that the faith-based Christians do today, is to reject the whole foundational objective and revelation of the Bible.   Jesus was stating that only those who become separate from the thinking and ways of this world, and became true disciples of Messiah/Christ, and become the "good ground" which is the only environment of body and mind that is prepared to comprehend the higher reality of the soul -- only these faithful disciples are able to perceive and understand the secrets of the Kingdom of God -- and in the Greek language, this sacred Knowledge which is received directly from the Source, is called Gnosis.   And by the very meaning of the word that is being presented that cannot be revealed "...to ordinary mortals.  A hidden or secret thing, not obvious to the understanding" -- it is of the utmost importance to recognize that what is being conveyed is the fact that "...spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”.   Why? Because man in his organic or "natural" condition of mind, has yet to develop the facilities of mind necessary to receive and comprehend this higher spiritual knowledge that the biblical authors are making reference to.    And this fact of human life that everyone must eventually come to terms with, is demonstrated in the Gospel of Thomas in the saying: (17) Jesus said, "I shall give you what no eye has seen and what no ear has heard and what no hand has touched and what has never occurred to the human mind."   And these words -- i.e., higher realities that "...has never occurred to the human mind", parallels the statement of Paul that even the baptized and committed Christians will reject the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery Of The Gospel).  

It is not that either Jesus or the disciples wanted to hide or conceal higher spiritual facts and realities from anyone -- but rather, the organic human mind which is limited by the consciousness and vibratory spectrum of thought of the physical body, simply is incapable of comprehending any thoughts, impressions and realities beyond what the organic human body/mind will accommodate, without evolving through the process of transformation that was -- and remains -- the primary objective of the Gospel message and teachings.   Jesus came to lead the lost prodigal sons and daughters who are his brothers and sisters, out of the Far Country, in a return journey of the soul into the kingdom>   But, for the inner "narrow strait gate" to open, the body and physical mind must become what is allegorically portrayed as the Final Temple.    What this means is that the authors of the scriptures compose the body of the text using a quasi-historical setting which seems to promote the beliefs of the people, in order to both preserve the esoteric truths for those who have the eyes to see and ears to hear the higher wisdom of the spirit -- and further preserve the scriptures so they can be retrieved by these same Mystic/Gnostics when their souls returned to this life in the future.  

The Left And Right Hands Of God: In the parable of the prodigal son, Jesus portrays the Citizen of the Far Country as maintaining total and complete control over the lost son -- but why?   Why would Creator-God even create and bring forth an environment that would take control and rule over the mind, thinking and lives of the lost prodigal sons and daughters?   Because the scriptures were corrupted ( http://BibleCorruption.com ),  and the modern believer has been denied access to the original teachings of Jesus on the journey of the soul  (see Preexistent Soul), it has become virtually impossible for the modern Christians to understand the Laws and the reality of what is portrayed as evil in the world.    And when properly understood, the answer to these questions go to the very core of what man calls good and evil -- and why God would seemingly permit evil to prevail in the world without intervening.   In that writing known as the Clementine Homilies, the Apostle Peter is quoted as explaining with respect to the Laws that control all movements and events in this world: "For thus from the beginning was a law laid by God, the Creator of all things, on each of the two princes, him of the right hand and him of the left, that neither should have power over any one whom they might wish to benefit or to hurt, unless first he had sat down at the same table with them. As, then, when you partook of meat offered to idols, you became servants to the prince of evil, in like manner, if you cease from these things, and flee for refuge to God through the good Prince of His right hand, honoring Him without sacrifices, by doing whatsoever He wills, know of a truth that not only will your bodies be healed, but your souls also will become healthy. For He only, destroying with His left hand, can quicken with His right; He only can both smite and raise the fallen."   

It is near impossible to understand the Gospel account of Jesus and the Syro-Phoenician woman, without understanding what Peter stated in the above quotation with respect to the Laws.   Thus, it is written:  "For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet.  The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter.  But Jesus said to her, Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs.  And she answered and said to Him, Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children's crumbs.  Then He said to her, For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.  And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed" (Mark 7:25-30 NKJ).   Thus, the question: Why did Jesus not immediately help her?   Why did he portray the woman as a dog?    What is the spiritual meaning of the children's bread which is served at the Table -- bread that cannot be eaten by those portrayed as dogs?   Moreover, an important question that is rarely ever even considered, is the relationship between the acquisition of the bread and the presence of a demon that has invaded a person?   In answering the first question: The Laws which were instituted by God in the beginning, inhibited those who are servants of the Right Hand such as Jesus, from relieving the infirmities of those who sat down at the table on the Left -- people who Jesus portrayed as being in a type of Prison (see The Prison).   Thus, Jesus could not initially help the woman, because she had come under the control of the Left Hand -- i.e., "...that neither should have power over any one whom they might wish to benefit or to hurt, unless first he had sat down at the same table with them."   

The modern believers who, having adopted the doctrines of men, remain totally unaware of the fact that they dwell in a Spiritual Diaspora (see The Lie).   They imagine that when they hear the Gospel, they say their Jesus-prayer, and they are then saved without any other requirements.   Yet, while there are many verses of scripture that refutes this manmade doctrine, we can easily see this refutation in the parable of the Sower and the Seed where it states that when they embrace the word, it becomes unfruitful because they fail to perfect the Word with their actions -- i.e.,  “And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful” (Mark 4:19 KJV).   Thus, when they are tested by the Left Hand in the manner portrayed in the Book of Job, they succumb and fail the tests presented to them.  

Again Peter explains to his disciple Clement: "But that this is so, has been said even by the law in the person of God: ‘I will kill, and, I will make alive; I will strike, and I will heal. For, in truth, He kills and makes alive. He kills through the left hand, that is, through the evil one, who has been so composed as to rejoice in afflicting the impious. And he saves and benefits through the right hand, that is, through the good one, who has been made to rejoice in the good deeds and salvation of the righteous."  

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

In the same way that in accord with the Divine Pattern -- as well as the Duality and Threefold reality of all of Creation -- there is the Duality of the Two Ways, the same is true with respect to the scriptures.   Paul portrayed the body of the scriptures as the "letter that killeth" to the Galatians when they were observing the rituals of the written word of the text.   Why?   Because the Left Hand is portrayed in the literal text -- and is especially seen in the Mosaic Law of Karmic-Retribution of an eye for an eye -- a reality of the Laws that control this world which has been ordained to perpetually return back to us the fruit of our own thoughts, desires and actions -- i.e., "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7 NKJ).    A most profound statement by the Church Father Origen is basically rejected by the people of the simple faith today who are incapable of reason and engaging the mind in the process of true spiritual growth: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis - see The Early Church On Predestination).   And when properly understood, that Angelic Power that Peter portrays and the Prince of the Left Hand, exercises absolute control over the prodigal son for the purpose of evolving him to a level of spiritual maturity.   In the life of mankind, much of this control over the people of this world is to maintain them in a condition where they can eventually overcome the Laws and bring about a state of Wholeness and Completion.   In the same way that a school is a controlled environment which is conducive to the process of learning, so too is this world.   And that, for the same reason that a student is not given the answers to the tests that they must complete before moving on to a higher level of instruction, there is an important reason why man dwells under the  cloud of ignorance that is portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).   Therefore, the authors of the scriptures well understood the reality that the body of esoteric knowledge must be concealed from the ruling powers of this world, or it will be immediately destroyed.   Proof of this fact is easily demonstrated in the article The Ten Words, where it is demonstrated beyond any doubt that the original Ebionite Nazirene Disciples of Jesus were correct, in their assertion that Jesus was a man who became the Messiah and One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God at his baptism.   And regardless of the facts and proof presented, the Christian world ardently ignores the Truth, and condemns as heretics those who even present to them the facts.   Thus, they have eaten at the table of the Prince of the Left Hand, and their whole mind, thinking and lifestyle is under the control of what Paul portrays as the god of this world.  

Throughout most of man's history it was virtually impossible for core essential truths to be written literally, because (1) organic man could not comprehend his own higher soul reality -- (2) whenever core essential truths were written in a manner that man could begin to grasp them, these truths were quickly corrupted and condemned as heresy.   Therefore, it has always been necessary to preserve and conceal these core essential truths under the garb of allegory, so that they could be passed on to those who had the capacity to use them, and escape the shackles of what Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country.   Unbeknown to the congregation of faith-based believers who are acting in the capacity of a mule or courier who smuggles and preserves important sacred (esoteric) knowledge without the god of this world (Citizen of the far Country) being able to totally stop and inhibit the smuggling of these sacred esoteric truths -- and while the god of this world can keep and maintain the congregation of believers in a state of denial when they are confronted with the facts, because of the manner that the scriptures are composed, it remains impossible for the Citizen of the Far Country to totally destroy the body of sacred knowledge.   Why?   Because all things that exist, must exist within the Divine Pattern of Creation.   Therefore, the scriptures are composed using a CODE -- and the CODE takes into account the very Spiritual DNA of Creation itself.   What this means is that the CODE to retrieving the esoteric knowledge that lies concealed beneath the text which Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth" (2 Cor 3:6), which was often little more than "Jewish fables" (Titus 1:14), was the CODE which Jesus portrayed as  The Key of Knowledge  that the Jews are said to have thrown away.    That the segment of the Gentile Church which called themselves Orthodox, followed in the same way as the carnal Jews who were portrayed as Pharisees, is the very reason why the congregation of Christians today are themselves a body of mules or couriers, who dwell in a Spiritual Diaspora that totally inhibits them from perceiving the true meaning of the Gospels.   Yet, because they have preserved the sacred writings, they can begin to free themselves from the constraints and shackles of the Citizen of the Far Country, by learning how to apply The Key of Knowledge to both the scriptures, the world in which they live, and within the construct of their own body, mind/soul and spiritual natures.  

  The Gospels And The PreExistent Soul That Evolves To Perfection In Many Lifetimes: What is demonstrated conclusively in the above is the fact that the whole of the Gospel message and teachings is largely dependent upon the advancement and evolution over the course of many lifetimes that the soul has lived, in order to attain to that level where they can "enter in the House with the Lord"!   As stated in the above, the literal text of the Torah/Old Testament which Paul calls the "letter that killeth", is a portrayal of the Law of Action and Reaction -- i.e., the Mosaic Law of Karmic Retribution.   Again, as detailed in the above, the parabolic teachings in the Gospels that are designed to convey important esoteric truths to the few who are said to be In The House -- while concealing from the multitude of hearers the inner spiritual meaning -- instructing each hearer in accord with their own spiritual level or condition in relation to the ground in the parable of the Sower And The Seed -- is totally dependent upon the spiritual victories that each soul has accomplished over the course of the previous lifetimes that their soul has lived.   This spiritual reality was an integral part of pre-Nicene Church doctrine as set forth in the words of the Church Father Origen when he wrote that “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis - see The Early Church On Predestination).    And while the Gospels in their original condition openly declared these truths more openly than they do at present -- prior to their corruption by the Christians who called themselves Orthodox, and entered into a covenant with Pagan Rome (see http://BibleCorruption.com ) -- as demonstrated conclusively in the above, the whole of the core Gospel principles is totally dependent upon the evolutionary journey of the soul over the course of many lifetimes.  

The important question was presented to Jesus: "Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?" (Matt 19:16 ESV).   And Jesus replied: "If you would enter life, keep the commandments."    One must keep the Commandments in order to fulfill the Law -- with the objective being to fulfill the Law within one's self in order to become transformed into the Final Temple.    To fulfill the objectives of the scriptures, and become transformed into the High Priest of the Living Temple of your body-mind -- which enables the disciple to enter in at the Holy of Holies within one's self, and receive the Gnosis that only the Logos/Son of God/True Prophet can bestow upon one who is truly faithful -- the seeker must live the necessary Consecrated Life that transforms their lower animal nature into a perfect sacrifice in their Living Temple.    Quoting from the AskMoses.com article on the Final Temple:

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

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

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

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

What is allegorically presented in the Torah and the Old Testament, is the esoteric knowledge that a disciple needs to perfect the Laws within his own body and mind, and become transformed into the Final Temple.   When Jesus stated that who desire to be his follower, and do not themselves pick up their own cross and travail in TheWay, are not worthy of entering into Life.   Thus, the crucifixion itself is an allegorical portrayal of the Final Stage of Birth -- and those who fail to bring about the process within themselves, cannot return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.   And this process of birth is presented in the words: "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22 NKJ).

The beginning of the process is the keeping of the Commandments -- and especially in the manner that Jesus taught throughout the Gospels and the Sermon on the Mount.   With respect to the outward rituals of the Jews, the early Church writer Epiphanius quotes the Gospel of the Ebionites/Hebrews where Jesus states: "I have come to destroy the sacrifices" (Panarion 30.16.5) -- because these sacrifices must be brought about within the body-mind of the disciple.    And in condemnation of the outward ritual observance of the Law by the carnal Jews it is written: "He who kills a bull is as if he slays a man; he who sacrifices a lamb, as if he breaks a dog's neck; he who offers a grain offering, as if he offers swine's blood; he who burns incense, as if he blesses an idol. Just as they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations, So will I choose their delusions, and bring their fears on them; because, when I called, no one answered, when I spoke they did not hear; but they did evil before My eyes, and chose that in which I do not delight" (Isa 66:3-4 NKJ).   Taking this condemnation of the ritual observance of the Laws even further: "The multitude of your sacrifices-- what are they to me? says the LORD. I have more than enough of burnt offerings, of rams and the fat of fattened animals; I have no pleasure in the blood of bulls and lambs and goats. When you come to appear before me, who has asked this of you, this trampling of my courts? Stop bringing meaningless offerings! Your incense is detestable to me. New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations-- I cannot bear your evil assemblies. Your New Moon festivals and your appointed feasts my soul hates. They have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them. When you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide my eyes from you; even if you offer many prayers, I will not listen. Your hands are full of blood; wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight! Stop doing wrong, learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow" (Isa 1:11-17 NIV).  

What did Jesus teach regarding the Law?   "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.  I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.  Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:17-20 NIV).  

How different modern Christians perceive what the scriptures actually convey is easily demonstrated by using our very own Bibles.   When Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders that the “…tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you” (Matt 21:31 RSV), such a statement simply has no place within the present day understanding of Christian doctrine.  Because we are without a means to explain Jesus' words, most Bible commentaries simply ignore the implications of this passage of scripture . One widely used commentary attempts to correct the text by changing the words to “instead of” -- which would then make the meaning doctrinally correct and read: “The tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God instead of you”.   In this verse of scripture we are presented with one of the core reasons why the original followers of Jesus believed differently than most Christians today.  The question that must be posed is: When will the chief priests and elders enter into the kingdom? Modern Christian doctrine states that because of their disbelief and rejection of Christ, they will be cut off from the face of God, and condemned to eternal judgment. And yet we cannot deny the fact that Jesus' own words convey the message that there will come a time when the chief priests and elders will also enter the Kingdom of God -- and it will be at a time after the tax collectors and harlots who believed, repented, picked up their own crosses and followed in TheWay.    
The question that we are presented with is how long must each of us who are the prodigal sons, travail in this, the Far Country, before we come to our senses and "turn about", and begin the journey in TheWay that returns us to the Edeninc Kingdom of Origination?    Jesus commanded those who would be his followers:
"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) -- i.e., "For many are called, but few are chosen" (Matt 22:14 NKJ).    With respect to the word that translators commonly render "destruction", the true meaning in no manner represents what is actually being presented.   Quoting the footnote on this word in the Schofield Reference Bible which reads: “There is no thought in these various words of annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”   And it is not until we come to understand the meaning of the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image), can we even begin to understand what is being taught in these verses.   The answer is found in Paul's statement regarding the thinking, mindset and lifestyle of the people of this world who dwell under the power and control of the "Citizen ...of the Far Country": "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world..." (Col 2:8 NIV)
.   

As a lost prodigal son, how many lifetimes travailing in this world will be required before you keep the Commandments, begin the process of the transformation of your body-mind into the Final Temple?    How many images of your higher soul-self will be generated into this world "...that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”, before you begin to overcome the Law within you, and begin to draw nearer and learn from the One Teacher that Jesus said to seek out?   How many lifetimes will you read the sacred word of the scriptures through the dogmatic filter of the doctrines of carnal men, before you embrace the words of Peter when he warned: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without". (see The Spiritual Disenfranchisement Of The Mind).  

 

 

  The Bible As A Trojan Horse: While it may be offensive to the common believers to see themselves portrayed in the above as a variety of "simpleminded ...mules", it was the Orthodox Church itself which brought this condition about when they entered into a covenant relationship with the Pagan Emperor Constantine -- who then dictated what beliefs Christians could hold, and used his armies to murder whoever did not accept the religion of the emperor (see The Christian Judas).   Prior to the fourth century, the Church existed in the manner of a Spiritual Hospital that cared for human afflictions at one level -- served as a guide into the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom at a second level -- and a core spiritual environment for those who had evolved to a state of maturity -- and this is demonstrated in the articles The Secret Doctrine and The Gnostic Paul.   But the Church itself was put to death, once Pagan Rome became the ruling factor in the doctrines of the Church.   And if the original authors had not written the scriptures as a Spiritual Trojan Horse, the Truth would not be available for sincere seekers today.  

Paul had correctly predicted that those who called themselves Christian would worship the AntiChrist as God (see The Church Of the AntiChrist).   But once the Church came under secular Roman rule -- and the servants and scribes of Constantine further edited the most corrupt copies of the scriptures in order to make them better support the doctrines of Pagan Rome (see BibleCorruption.com) -- both the original Ebionite Nazirenes and the Spiritual Christians were hunted down and murdered, in order to silence all opposition to the religion of the emperor.   Yet, because of  The Key of Knowledge, throughout the ensuing thirteen hundred years when the Church ruled, small communities of Spiritual Christians were reborn, in order to guide sincere seekers in TheWay.   And when properly understood, what is now Islam was one of these Spiritual movements that was originally a community of seekers who attempted to restore the Truth and TheWay (see The True History Of Islam).   In fact, in the Middle Ages there was a high level of interaction between Spiritual Christians, Kabbalistic Jews, and Sufi Muslims to assist seekers from all three religions to find the Truth and TheWay that would set them free from the human servitude to the god of this world that shackles mankind to a state of profound ignorance.    Because the scriptures were themselves a Trojan Horse that, when The Key of Knowledge  was properly applied, revealed a body of esoteric truths that enabled sincere seekers to restore their level of spirituality achieved in their more distant past, leaders arose within these spiritual communities who then guided other seekers into TheWay of the Light and Truth.   And what you are reading at the present, is the product of the Divine Plan of Creator-God that uses these sacred writings which are called scriptures, to insure that the Truth and TheWay is preserved for those who are genuine seekers and disciples of Messiah/Christ.

The Bible is as a Trojan Horse that, what the Apostle Peter portrayed as the "Prince of the Right Hand" left as a gift in disguise, in order to enable those who dwell under the power and authority of the Citizen of the Far Country (aka god of this world) to use, in their escape from the power and dominion of the "Prince of the Left Hand".    While the prodigal son dwelt in the Far Country, he remained under the control of the Citizen which Paul portrays as the god of this world.   Yet, when the prodigal son began to realize the futility of the Far Country -- and looked for a means to escape what Jesus called the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) --  the prodigal son only had to apply what Jesus called The Key of Knowledge to the (Trojan Horse) scriptures, to begin the process of gaining the necessary knowledge and power to prevail over the god of this world, and begin the journey in TheWay and return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.

  The Hidden Reality Of The Old Testament: At the time that the Torah/Old Testament was written, the people were nomads who sacrificed not only animals, but sometimes other people and even their own children to the gods and powers of this world.   Thus the question: If God did not require animal sacrifice and the whole gamut of rituals in the Old Testament that Paul portrayed as worthless, then why was the Old Testament written in this manner that deceived the people into performing these rituals?    That the scriptures not only possess an inner meaning that is not apparent to the mind of organic man -- and the scriptures must themselves be turned within one's own mind and being as the  The Key of Knowledge, is the reason why Jesus condemned the whole system of animal sacrifice in a temple made with the hands of men ("...the Most High does not dwell in temples made with hands" - Acts 7:48) -- "Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?" (1 Cor 3:16 NKJV).    Even such rituals as circumcision was in use among the Jews before Moses, and was nothing more than a custom that the biblical authors used because the Jews would not have accepted the Torah if it was rejected -- and the biblical authors used the custom in an allegory to present a higher truth of the spirit.   Thus, Jesus states: "Moses commanded you to circumcise your sons. But it wasn't really Moses who gave you this command. It was your ancestors..." (John 7:22 CEV).    In like manner, while the sacrificing of animals is a worthless endeavor, if the scriptures were not written so that the literal text appeared on the surface to confirm that God demanded animal sacrifice and heathen worship in the form of worthless rituals, then the scriptures would not be embraced and promulgated by the nomadic heathen tribe that called themselves Jews.   That the Torah is totally allegorical, and conceals from the masses the true meaning, is demonstrated in the portrayal of the Final Temple.   Concealed within the allegory of building a temple, was the body of esoteric instructions and knowledge necessary to transform the seeker/disciple's own physical body and mind into a Living Spiritual Final Temple.   And in building this Living Spiritual Temple within the construct of one's own body and mind, the seeker/disciple fulfilled the objective of becoming the High Priest who had the power to enter in at the Holy of Holies, and gain access into the Kingdom within.

When Paul warned that the "natural" mind of man was incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the soul -- the Mysteries of the Kingdom -- and the true reasons for man's sojourn in this world which Jesus portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son as the Far Country -- without understanding the important reasons why it is impossible for the organic mind of man to comprehend his own higher reality, mankind will remain lost and wandering in this world in pursuit of a spiritual reality that he can never achieve.   Because the Truth could not be literally written, Judaism was therefore what is known as a Mystery religion -- and the common Jews were used in the manner of mules who preserved their scriptural Trojan Horse, for those who were intelligent enough not to be seduced by the absurdities of the written text.   In the words of Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, where he writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”.   The objective of Judaism is to become transformed into Spiritual Israel.   In the exact same manner as the enlightened Jewish Rabbi's, the early Christian Church Father Origen writes: It is sufficient however, to represent in the style of a historic narrative what is intended to convey a secret meaning in the garb of history, that those who have the capacity may work out for themselves all that relates to the subject.”   And with regard to what would otherwise be historical symbols and events that would appear to us as the knowledge of superficial episodes of the past, Origen writes: “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).   Students of Hebrew Mysticism will perceive that what the third-century Christian Church Father Origen wrote was no different than what is contained in the Zohar, where it states: “The narratives of the doctrine are its cloak.   The simple look only on the garment, that is upon the narrative of the doctrine; more they know not.   The instructed, however, see not merely the cloak, but what the cloak covers”.   The Jewish mystic who spends his life seeking the inner meaning of the written word that the natural mind of man is incapable of seeing, has warned: "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..." (the Zohar quoted in No Jew Has Read The Torah).   Peter said what appears to be historical never happened.   Paul called the literal text an allegory.   These same truths are again conveyed to us in the words of the Church Historian Eusebius: “Many were led astray by reading the allegorical contents of the scriptures literally in the method of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”.   What these symbols truly mean is perhaps best expressed by G.R.S. Mead in his celebrated work, Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, where he explained that, once properly understood, the true meaning of what is “…projected onto the screen…” of the scriptures, “…was in reality a picture of their [man’s] own minds”

The Church Father Origen went one step further and reasoned that "...What man is found such an idiot as" to believe these forms and symbols literally, and not to understand "...that every man must hold these things for images, under which the hidden sense lies concealed”?   (see Mystery).   In the same way that when a beast becomes conditioned to its environment, when the mind of man is ruled over by his lower animal nature, he will believe virtually anything -- i.e., Pagan sacrifices, virgin sacrifices, belief in a warring and conquering god, belief in a vengeful god that is even more evil than the most vile of mankind.   As stated above, the Apostle Peter warns that the enigmas of the scriptures which he portrays as the "mystery of the books with the power to deceive" (see Power To Deceive), were intentionally inserted into the body of the text as a test to the reader.   Peter portrays the Gentiles as being easily deceived, because they are accustomed to believing bad things about God.   Thus, the god of the Old Testament has been insightfully portrayed as resembling the Wizard of OZ -- i.e., a magical nut case behind the curtain who liked physical circumcision, genocide of non-Jews including killing every woman & child -- a god who made man, then repented he even made man and killed everyone on earth but Noah and his immediate family -- a god who kills a man for trying to steady the ARK, a voodoo god who loves animal sacrifice and blood sprinkling, a god who sacrifices his son. The scriptures are very clear, it’s all allegorical about the Kingdom within.   The reader is warned  in John 6:63, that reading the scriptures literally has no profit at all (“the flesh profiteth nothing”) and leaves the reader spiritually bankrupt : "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life".

What Moses Maimonedes is stating in the above, then, is that there exists many parts of the scriptures that are literally and historically not true -- going so far as to even portray portions of the written texts as being "...repugnant to both reason and common sense".   And if this is true, how can any intelligent reader of the scriptures, whether believer or critic, make the claim that they know what it being stated, when the scriptures were intentionally written so that only an initiate could perceive the true meaning?   Why was unhistorical events that were "...repugnant to both reason and common sense" even inserted into the scriptures in the first place?   Because much of what was presented was exactly as Paul portrayed it -- i.e., "Jewish fables" (Titus 1:14).   The question must therefore be asked: Why did the authors of the scriptures weave their truths within and around "Jewish fables"?    Because if their writings did not conform to the very heathen and superstitious beliefs of the nomadic tribe who called themselves Jews, the writings themselves would be rejected and destroyed.    And because the Mystics recognized the journey of the soul, they understood that they, or the future images generated by their own soul -- would need the wisdom and knowledge contained within the scriptures in the future.    

Isn't Paul stating this exact same truth when he writes to the Galatians who are attempting to embrace Jewish ritualistic ways, and states: “Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?” And then Paul goes on to explain to those who want to attempt to read the written word literally, in an historical context as Christians do today: “For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory” (Gal 4:21-24 KJV). 

That the Jew who remained of a natural carnal mindset could not see beyond the symbols of the allegory, and their eyes and hearts were hardened so they could not comprehend the true meaning of the scriptures, is readily understood where Paul states that “their minds were blinded” by God, “for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament… even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart” (2 Cor 3:14-15 KJV).  The time has come for this vail to be removed from the eyes of all Jews.  What modern non-Jews fail to realize today, is the reality that all men of the flesh are equally blind to the True Torah of God!   Because the Christians have adopted the ways of the carnal Jews, the same vail is upon their own hearts and minds.

From a spiritual perspective, when the Jews worship the god of the literal word -- with rituals, animal sacrifices, incense, in a temple made with the hands of men, it can truly be said that the Jews worshiped a false god -- a god which the Spiritual (Gnostic) Christians portrayed as a Demiurge that created the mental world in which they lived.  And what was it that the scriptures used by the Jews said: "The multitude of your sacrifices-- what are they to me? says the LORD. I have more than enough of burnt offerings, of rams and the fat of fattened animals; I have no pleasure in the blood of bulls and lambs and goats. When you come to appear before me, who has asked this of you, this trampling of my courts? Stop bringing meaningless offerings! Your incense is detestable to me. New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations-- I cannot bear your evil assemblies. Your New Moon festivals and your appointed feasts my soul hates. They have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them. When you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide my eyes from you; even if you offer many prayers, I will not listen. Your hands are full of blood; wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight! Stop doing wrong, learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow" (Isa 1:11-17 NIV).

Why does the Most High God take no pleasure in rituals, sacrifices, incense, Sabbaths and New Moon festivals?  In the words of the Church Father Origen: “I believe that every man must hold these things for images, under which the hidden sense lies concealed.”  And in the words of Paul:  "Which things are an allegory.”   And in the words of the Jewish Mystic: “The narratives of the doctrine are its cloak.   The simple look only on the garment, that is upon the narrative of the doctrine; more they know not.   The instructed, however, see not merely the cloak, but what the cloak covers”.

In recognizing Jesus' words when he stated that the god of the Torah Observant Jews was the Devil -- the Spiritual Christians who were called Gnostics, understood what was being implied when they said the god of the Jew was a lesser god who was a Demiurge.   Why a Demiurge?   Because they were literally controlled by their inherent carnal mindset -- i.e., the beliefs of the carnal Jews which included all that they saw and understood, was interwoven through the filter of their doctrines in accord with the heathen vision of their god that they believed in.    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".   Peter called the written words of the scriptures the books that have the power to deceive.    Why?   Because the literal written word of the scriptures portrays the Left Hand of God, while the inner spiritual meaning that lies beneath the allegorical garb, reveals the Right Hand that can sustain and save.   The Left Hand is the reflective 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.   The Old Testament has often been portrayed as the Mosaic Law of retribution -- i.e., an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.    And what is actually being conveyed is the Law of action and reaction -- often called the Law of Karma.    When a child misbehaves, a parent applies a corrective action in accordance with the needs of the child.   And in the scriptures this great truth is revealed in the words:  "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7 NKJ). 

Thus, while the multitude of Jews celebrated dead rituals and traditions, the wise were able to utilize these same scriptures and apply what Jesus called The Key of Knowledge to reveal the concealed and preserved esoteric truths that were hidden within the body of the text which Paul stated was the "letter that killeth".   And this is why the Jews were portrayed as being blind, and the Spiritual Christians portrayed them as worshippers of a Demiurge -- or a god of their own making that created the illusions of the world in which they dwell. 

Again, if we pose the questions: Why aren't the scriptures written plainly?   So that everyone can read and understand?   Further, the question must be posed: If it is true that the outer text is just a quasi-historical cloak that is merely concealing the inner message that is beyond the vision and understanding of the vast majority of readers, wouldn't it be dishonest for the authors of the scriptures to not only conceal the truth from the reader -- but actually create a writing that can be compared to a type of Trojan Horse?   The fact that there exists a body of esoteric knowledge that is hidden in an allegorical language so it cannot be seen and detected by the community of believers who use these scriptures, just doesn't make sense to the average person with a very limited and shallow understanding of the Divine Providence and Objectives of Creator-God.   While Jesus commanded to call no man on earth your father -- because you only have One Father who is your Heavenly Father -- the vast majority of Christians simply fail to understand the reality of Jesus' words.    And when the Pharisees accused Jesus of blasphemy, he replied to them: "Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, 'I said, You are gods '?" (John 10:34 NKJ - see Ye Are Gods).   And indeed, if the essence of what is portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son does in fact apply to each person, then the vast majority of mankind is simply not prepared to understand their true spiritual reality as the divine offspring of Creator-God.    In fact, they condemn such a reality as blasphemy.       

Where the average person would look upon the reality of God as a King who demands obedience -- they would see themselves as subjects which God demands obedience, and punishes those who disobey His Mandates.   Thus, the whole concept of a concealed truth that is beyond their ability to even detect in what they consider to be the Written Word of God to all of mankind, makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.   As subjects, they only need to know the legal requirements that God sets forth for them to observe, and to heap praise upon Him as their ruler and king.   And when the historical Jesus -- i.e., a true Holy Man -- came to teach them, they made him a pagan sacrifice that bestowed upon believers a license to live a heathen life in sin.   Yet, such a mindset is the product of a totally immature understanding of both themselves, and God.   When properly understood, there is no such thing as a God who punishes -- but rather, there are Laws that control each of our development, in order to insure that each and every prodigal son fulfills their Divine Destiny that was inaugurated in the Beginning.   In the parable, when the prodigal son commenced his journey into the Far Country, his thinking was totally immature, and he did not at all understand the ramifications of his actions.   Further, because he was of an immature mindset and understanding, he did not comprehend the ramifications of his lifestyle while in the Far Country.   All our actions have consequences -- and it was the "...riotous living" which squandered away the prodigal son's inheritance -- i.e., the very vital life-force that animates his mind and being -- that robs the prodigal son of the ability to both remember his more distant past, and possess the depth of mind to comprehend his own higher soul-realty.   

This world is portrayed as spiritually barren -- the valley of death that for some people can be portrayed as a type of hell -- and when the allegorical meaning of swine is understood, mankind's reality in this world is presented in the words of the parable: "...And when he (the prodigal son) had spent all (his inheritance), there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.   And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.   And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him" (Luke 15:13-16 KJV).   The Amplified Bible version adds some important elements to the parable that is not apparent when translated into English -- i.e., "And He said, There was a certain man who had two sons;  And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the part of the property that falls [to me]. And he divided the estate between them. [Deut 21:15-17.]  And not many days after that, the younger son gathered up all that he had and journeyed into a distant country, and there he wasted his fortune in reckless and loose [from restraint] living.  And when he had spent all he had, a mighty famine came upon that country, and he began to fall behind and be in want.   So he went and forced (glued) himself upon one of the citizens of that country, who sent him into his fields to feed hogs.  And he would gladly have fed on and filled his belly with the carob pods that the hogs were eating, but [they could not satisfy his hunger and] nobody gave him anything [better]" [Jer 30:14.] (Luke 15:11-16  AMP).  
What does it mean for the son to be portrayed as having "...forced (glued)" himself to the Citizen of the Far Country?   Thus, what we see is that once the prodigal son was "glued" to the Citizen of this world, that he remained under the total control of what Paul portrayed as the god of this world.   Unable to think or reason independently -- and very much imbued with the cultural mindset and lifestyle that maintained his existence as a slave to his worldly master who ruled over every aspect of his thinking and life.   And this is true of all of mankind -- who has been enrolled in God's Divine School House where the prodigal sons evolve to maturity through the process of having their own actions returned back upon them -- i.e., good, bad or indifferent.  

Without understanding the identity of the elder son who maintained himself in absolute harmony with the Will of the Father, the parable itself will make little real sense to the reader -- i.e., "But his older son was in the field; and as he returned and came near the house, he heard music and dancing.  And having called one of the servant [boys] to him, he began to ask what this meant.  And he said to him, Your brother has come, and your father has killed that [wheat-]fattened calf, because he has received him back safe and well.  But [the elder brother] was angry [with deep-seated wrath] and resolved not to go in. Then his father came out and began to plead with him, But he answered his father, Look! These many years I have served you, and I have never disobeyed your command. Yet you never gave me [so much as] a [little] kid, that I might revel and feast and be happy and make merry with my friends; But when this son of yours arrived, who has devoured your estate with immoral women, you have killed for him that [wheat-] fattened calf!  And the father said to him, Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours.  But it was fitting to make merry, to revel and feast and rejoice, for this brother of yours was dead and is alive again! He was lost and is found!" (Luke 15:25-32 AMP).   That the elder son is not representative of a person or people is demonstrated in the words that this elder son has perpetually "...served [the Father], and [has] have never disobeyed [the Father's] command".   Why can't the modern believer understand the nature and identity of the elder son?   Because they, like the Pharisees, have thrown away The Key of Knowledge.  

While the immature congregation of modern believers cling to the dogma of the doctrine of Original Sin which was hatched by St. Augustine (see The Folly Of Original Sin), it is the faith-based believers own spiritual immaturity that causes them to cling to such preposterous and carnal ideas about God.   What is allegorically portrayed as the Fall of Man in the second Genesis Creation account, was not at all due to any fault of mankind as is dogmatically supposed -- but was a natural exploration of self as both God through us, began to explore the reality of Self.   Thus, a long ignored statement by Paul is seen in the words: "For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now" (Rom 8:19-22 NKJ).  

What does this mean?  Take especial notice of the words:  "...For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it  ...For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now".   In the same way that Jesus stated that unless you bring about the next stage of birth, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven -- all of the trials of the prodigal son in this, the Far Country, is the process of birth that was brought upon mankind by the Laws -- Laws which evolve each and every soul from the Alpha of ignorance, to the Omega of Enlightened Light and Knowing.   The great truth that is not at all understood in the above words -- a 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.    And 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”.    And that this statement is confirmed in the Gospel of Thomas in the words: "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."   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”.   This statement should provoke great thought in the reader who is under the misconception that our Heavenly Father would destroy or forever cut off one of his sons or daughters who are lost in this world.   Moreover, the reality that mankind did not Fall from Grace because of the insane folly of what the Church of Rome portrayed as Original Sin -- but rather  "...the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it" -- and that what mankind is presently enduring is the "...groans and labors [of] birth pangs".  --  Which means that what is presented and concealed within the allegory of the letter of the written word, is simply beyond even man's imagination.    Which is why Paul warns that the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom is incomprehensible to the "natural" mind of man who, because of his own mental and spiritual immaturity, will reject the Truth as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery Of The Gospel).    Moreover, this means that if what the biblical authors and early Church authorities are saying is true, how could those who wrote the scriptures possibly put what is incomprehensible into a plain written narrative that those who totally lack the capacity to understand, would read and comprehend?   Further, so long as mankind remains what is portrayed as being  "glued" to the Citizen of this world -- and the Citizen or god of this world maintains absolute control over the thinking and life of organic man -- then it remains impossible for man to comprehend anything of a higher reality than the most mundane things of this world.  

If what St. Gregory states is true, and the whole of our race will one day be perfected -- i.e., “…when the complete whole of our race shall have been perfected from the first man to the last” -- then there are so many grave misconceptions on the part of believers today, that it would be impossible for them to even being to understand their own higher soul-reality.    And thus, the wisdom in the words: "...if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".    But it is important to begin to recognize that the whole design of Creation itself is imbued with Laws that through a process that few understand, have the power to free mankind from this poverty of mind and being that causes him to dwell in a state of profound ignorance -- and especially, ignorance about himself and his true soul and spiritual reality.   And what is the process?   By perpetually confronting self, each prodigal son begins to evolve to a state of maturity that fulfills the requirement set forth by Jesus in the Gospels: "You, therefore, must be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect" (Mt. 5:48).   And while Christians fail to understand why and how this is accomplished -- and make countless excuses as to why they are not bound by the requirements of perfection -- their dogmatic belief's does not in any manner detract from what Jesus stated.   That they don't remember their more distant past -- nor are they cognizant of their own higher spiritual nature which is personified in the allegorical symbology of the elder brother who remains with the Father -- and the fact that they remain  "glued" to the Citizen of this world -- is the very reason that they are portrayed as being "dead" (see The Dead Know Nothing).    And this is why the Father said of the prodigal son with respect to when he was in the Far Country: "For this my son was dead, and is alive again" (Luke 15:24 KJV).

Jesus warned that for those who persist in doing evil to their brothers and sisters, that they become confined in a type of prison (see The Prison).   In the parable of The Call, those who have failed to put on the required "wedding garment", are cast out into what is portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).   That what Jesus taught in what is known as the Sermon on the Mount, is the means by which the individual can begin to break out of the prison (see Getting Out Of The Prison), is representative of one of the most essential teachings that should be observed by all of mankind.   That unbeknown to the vast majority of the people of this world, that they dwell under the total control of what the biblical author's call the god of this world, which in the parable of the prodigal son Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country, is further demonstrated in the words of Paul where he wrote: "As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.  All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath" (Eph 2:1-4 NIV).    It is important to recognize that this world is a kingdom which has a "ruler" whose "...spirit [is] ...at work in those who are disobedient."   And that the spirit of this ruler in this kingdom maintains absolute control under those who have permitted themselves to exist under his power.   And that it is impossible for them to know anything of any real value, so long as they remain under the power of the ruler of this kingdom.  

In the recent movie Pearl Harbor there was a scene where all the causalities were taken to a place where medical assistance could be rendered, and as each soldier was brought to the clinic they were immediately evaluated so as to categorize them.    Because the attending physicians and nurses were overwhelmed with causalities, each person had to be quickly evaluated and classified.   Those who could be helped were put in a location where the physicians and nurses could render them medical care and assistance.   Those who could not be helped, were maintained in a separate place until the inevitable death came upon them.   Is this cruel?   Wasn't it unfair to withhold medical care to those who were classified as beyond the ability to help?   Not when it is realized that if the doctors attempted to render care to those whose condition was not life-sustainable, that an even greater number of soldiers would be lost.   In the reality of life, the same is true of those who mature to the point where they can guide sincere seekers in TheWay, and help them to escape the spiritual death of this world. 

To even begin to come to terms with the reality of this world, it must be recognized that it is impossible for those lost prodigal sons and daughters who dwell under the power and control of the consciousness (god) of this world to possess any degree of spiritual knowledge.   In the parable it is stated: "And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together and took his journey into a far country; and there he wasted his substance with riotous living" (Luke 15:13 ASV) -- and it is this weakened state where man has been deprived and robbed of his spiritual inheritance -- drained of the necessary vital life-force that enters his being through the spiritual centers of the body -- that inhibits man from developing and using his higher resources of mind that enables him to possess the necessary spiritual knowledge that he needs to escape the clutches of the the god of this world.   This inability to perceive and understand is confirmed in what is known as the original ending to the Gospel of Mark in the words: "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" (see Original Gospel Message).   If the god of this world that Jesus portrays as the Citizen of the Far Country, has the power to inhibit the understanding of those who are under his control, then it is not only impossible for the lost prodigal sons to comprehend what they don't possess the mental capacity to understand -- but this condition will remain in effect, so long as the lost prodigal sons remain "...under the sway of Satan".   Thus, they exist as causalities that are beyond the ability of the spiritual physicians to help.    But perhaps even more important is the fact that each person is born into this life in accord with their own past actions (see Conditions Of One's Birth).    And this reality that is no longer understood by the Church today, was expressed in the words of the early Church Father Origen when he wrote: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).    And this reality of the Laws is explored in The Laws That Perfect Mankind -- and is detailed in the early Church's teachings of predestination (see Early Church On Predestination).  

 

 

  Why Don't You Remember Your Past Lives? If what is presented in the above is true, then the question must be posed: Why don't I know about my past?  When Jesus taught the people using the enigma of parables that allegorically concealed what he called the Sacred Secrets of the Kingdom, his disciples who had received all truths revealed to them plainly, asked him: Why do you teach them with parables?   What they were asking is why he did not speak plainly to them?   And thus, Jesus answered his disciples and explained: “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 are "without", are those who dwell in what Jesus called the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- and because they dwell "without [in the] outer darkness", they are incapable of perceiving and understanding anything beyond the base vibratory frequencies of the earth.    The disciples, on the other hand, had abandoned the ways of this world, and were able to spiritually receive the Knowledge of the Sacred Secrets of the Kingdom.    Instead of the word "mystery", the NIV Bible translates this word the "secret" of the Kingdom of God -- i.e., "The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!'" (Mark 4:11-12 NIV).

What does it mean to "turn"?  From the perspective of the prodigal son, it is to turn away from the Far Country, and return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination (see GateOfEden.com).   In the Gospel accounts, particular attention and importance is placed upon Children, who are often referred to as the “little ones”.   It is warned that if we do not “turn about”, and become as little children, we cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven (Mt 18:3; 19:14).  In Mark 10:24 Jesus refers to his disciples as children when he explains: “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God” (NIV).

If all that was required was to say a prayer accepting Jesus as one's personal Lord and Savior as modern Christians have been led to believe, then why would the scriptures make reference to “...how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God”?    And this is further confirmed in the words of the disciples: "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22 NKJ).   And when rightfully understood, these many tribulations are representative of the process of "turning about", breaking free of the shackles imposed upon man by what Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of this, the Far Country.  But if the individual is to even begin to prevail over what Paul portrays as "...the spirit of the ruler of this kingdom", then they must recognize that whatever is written literally, in like manner is controlled by the god of this world -- and they must begin to apply the Key of Knowledge in order to break the CODE that has the power to open their eyes to the inner soul and spiritual meaning of the scriptures that the organic people of this world are blind to.   

Jesus did not -- and could not -- speak openly to those who were "without [in the] outer darkness", because it would have been impossible for them to comprehend anything beyond the most mundane of earthly perceptions of self and life.    Why?   It is impossible for the biblical authors to write even the next level above elementary truths literally, because what Jesus portrays as the Citizen of the Far Country "...will not allow what lies under the unclean spirits to understand the truth and power of God".    Only those who have "turned about" from the thinking, mindset and lifestyle of this world -- and have begun to break free of the shackles imposed upon the thinking and lives of the prodigal sons who remain under the control of the Citizen of the Far Country -- possess the capacity to even begin the process that reunites them with their Heavenly Father in the Kingdom.    From the perspective of the medical caretakers in the above example of Pearl Harbor after the attack by the Japanese, those who remain under the yoke and shackles of the god of this world, are simply beyond the ability of the spiritual physicians to render assistance.   And if they dedicated their time to all, they would lose those who were capable of being helped.  

When the second century Epicurean Philosopher Celsus attacked the Church as a "secret system" which taught the inner core a totally different system of beliefs than what was embraced by the common people of the outer congregations (see The Secret Doctrine), the official reply of the Church stated that these doctrines of belief which were cloaked in allegory, were “...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”  (see Origen, Contra Celsum).    Why were they portrayed as simpleminded?   Because having squandered away their inheritance as portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son, they simply did not possess the mental capacity to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom.  In the Church's reply to the allegations of Celsus, it was correctly explained with respect to those who are portrayed as being too simpleminded to comprehend that: “For there are in the divinity of the Word some helps towards the cure of those who are sick”, meaning the sinners who remained under the yoke of the Citizen of the Far Country.    The statement is then clarified when it is further explained that while sinners are by no means invited to “…participation in mysteries, then, and to fellowship in the wisdom hidden in a mystery, which God ordained before the world to the glory of His saints”.    Why?   Because their thinking, mindset and lifestyle drains them of their inheritance (vital life-force), and they are incapable of utilizing the higher areas of mind and being that must be developed to understand the reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom.  

To demonstrate the biblical foundation of this great truth in the Church's reply to Celsus, we can see the same exact message in the assertion of Paul that there were different doctrines -- i.e., the “milk” for the carnal believer -- the lesser mysteries for the seeker -- and the deeper things of the spirit for the genuine Christian -- of which the reply was made to Celsus: “Now, in answer to such statements, we say that it is not the same thing to invite those who are sick in soul to be cured, and those who are in health to the knowledge and study of divine things. We, however, keeping both these things in view, at first invite all men to be healed, and exhort those who are sinners to come to the consideration of the doctrines which teach men not to sin, and those who are devoid of understanding to those which beget wisdom, and those who are children to rise in their thoughts to manhood, and those who are simply unfortunate to good fortune, or -- which is the more appropriate term to use -- to blessedness. And when those who have been turned towards virtue have made progress, and have shown that they have been purified by the word, and have led as far as they can a better life, then and not before do we invite them to participation in our mysteries. ‘For we speak wisdom among them that are perfect’”.

When Jesus explained to his disciples why he taught the multitudes only in parables -- i.e., “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) -- the explanation in the Church's reply to Celsus explained that: “And if you come to the books written after the time of Jesus, you will find that those multitudes of believers who hear the parables are, as it were, 'without', and worthy only of exoteric doctrines, while the disciples learn in private the explanation of the parables. For, privately, to His own disciples did Jesus open up all things, esteeming above the multitudes those who desired to know His wisdom” (Origen Contra Celsum).   In other words, those who are "outside" of the spiritual Kingdom were given only the parables and the exoteric doctrines -- which doctrines the Apostle calls the “milk intended for babes in Christ” -- and only the disciples were able to receive the revelation of the Mysteries of God.

In his famed work De Principiis, the early Church Father Origin explains who can be a recipient of the Mysteries of the Kingdom and the Gospel of God: “Whoever has clean hands, and therefore lifts up holy hands to God… let him come to us… Whoever is pure, not only from all defilement, but from what are regarded as lesser transgressions, let him be boldly initiated into the mysteries of Jesus, which properly are made known only to the holy and the pure… To those who have been purified in heart, he whose soul has for a long time, been conscious of no evil, especially since he yielded himself to the healing of the Word, let such a one hear the doctrines which were spoken in private by Jesus to his genuine disciples”.   Why?   Because only those who have broken the yoke of the Citizen of the Far Country -- and have ceased to squander away their inheritance on what Jesus portrayed as lives of "riotous living" -- and had "turned about" from the thinking, mindset and ways of this world -- possessed the capacity to be healed, and the ability to begin to understand the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom.  

When Jesus explained to his disciples: “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God” -- the reference to being rich, is in fact indicative of the thinking, the mindset and the lifestyle of this world that places mankind under the yoke of the Citizen of the Far Country.    Spiritually, many believers of little financial means can qualify as a rich man from a Gospel perspective.   In fact, they could have taken a vow of poverty, and if they have embraced the mindset of this world, and possess a great many manmade doctrines of error, it would be easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for them to enter the Kingdom of God.   In fulfillment of the meaning of the word Ebionite ("poor ones"), the children of the Kingdom are those who fulfill the requirement to be in the world and not of it. 

When Jesus replied to why he could only teach the people in parables -- i.e., "The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you..." -- the word translated both mystery and secret, is in fact drawn from the higher reality of what is called Gnosis.   And herein lies the problem as seen in the fact that even the concept of Gnosis was condemned and rejected as heresy by the Church of Rome that was controlled by the dictates of Pagan Emperors.   And the fact that the Church continues even into the present to cling to the dogma of Pagan Emperors, is the very reason why the modern-day congregation of Christians continue to grope in the "outer darkness" -- remaining blind to the true meaning of the scriptures.    With respect to the above warning of Jesus, in the parable of the Sower and the Seed Jesus warned:  “And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13 KJV).  And to put this great biblical truth in the more modern language of the New Living Translation: “But if you can't understand this story, how will you understand all the others I am going to tell?”   And what this means is that if you fail to understand what is conveyed in this parable -- and you fail to "turn about" and become what is portrayed in the "good ground" -- that it will remain impossible for you to understand any of the teachings of the scriptures or the Secrets of the Kingdom.

Thus, the ruling consciousness of this world which is often allegorically portrayed as Lucifer, Satan and the Devil, inhibits those lost prodigal sons and daughters from knowing the Truth -- and possessing any esoteric knowledge of realities higher than that of the mundane physical cares of this world.   Because of the dogma imposed upon the Church by the series of Roman Emperors who dictated what doctrines they were permitted to believe, Christians remain totally ignorant of the Laws -- and thus, fail to understand the power and dominion of what is portrayed as the Prince of the Right Hand in relation to the prince of the left hand -- i.e., in the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter explains: "For thus from the beginning was a law laid by God, the Creator of all things, on each of the two princes, him of the right hand and him of the left, that neither should have power over any one whom they might wish to benefit or to hurt, unless first he had sat down at the same table with them ....[and]you became servants to the prince of evil, in like manner, if you cease from [sin], and flee for refuge to God through the good Prince of His right hand, honoring Him without sacrifices, by doing whatsoever He wills, know of a truth that not only will your bodies be healed, but your souls also will become healthy. For He only, destroying with His left hand, can quicken with His right; He only can both smite and raise the fallen."    And again Peter explains: "But that this is so, has been said even by the law in the person of God: ‘I will kill, and, I will make alive; I will strike, and I will heal. For, in truth, He kills and makes alive. He kills through the left hand, that is, through the evil one, who has been so composed as to rejoice in afflicting the impious. And he saves and benefits through the right band, that is, through the good one, who has been made to rejoice in the good deeds and salvation of the righteous."  

To sit at the table, is to be a guest of the house -- as Jesus stated: "Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed.  But He answered her not a word.  And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, Send her away, for she cries out after us.  But He answered and said,  I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.  Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, Lord, help me!   But He answered and said, It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs.   And she said, Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table" (Matt 15:21-27 NKJV).

The woman could not sit at the table of the Right Hand, because her lifestyle and the fact that she is portrayed as a dog, caused her to dwell under the dominion and power of the left hand.   The word dominion is defined in Dictionary.com as "...the power or right of governing and controlling; sovereign authority" -- and that this physical realm belongs to the sovereign authority of the god of this world, is why Peter explained why the Prince of the Right Hand cannot come to the  aid of those who have chosen to live under the dominion and power of the prince of the left hand.   Moreover, this is why Jesus replied to the Pharisees that the Kingdom of Heaven is within you (see GateOfEden.com ), and that the Kingdom cannot come upon the earth so as to be seen by carnal men.   Why?  Why can't the Kingdom come upon the earth as carnal men predict?   The higher objective of this world which Jesus portrays as The Far Country, is to evolve and spiritually mature the prodigal sons and daughters to make them Whole and Complete -- i.e., Jesus said that  "Therefore, you must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect" (Mt. 5:48).   And it is the left hand of God which returns to each person the fruit of their own actions and deeds, that brings about this perfection through the trials and experiences of this world.   

   The Necessity Of Evil:  What does Peter state with respect to the two hands of God:  ‘I will kill, and, I will make alive; I will strike, and I will heal. For, in truth, He kills and makes alive. He kills through the left hand, that is, through the evil one, who has been so composed as to rejoice in afflicting the impious. And he saves and benefits through the right band, that is, through the good one, who has been made to rejoice in the good deeds and salvation of the righteous."    And this is why the Left Hand can be portrayed as the Left Hand of Correction that returns to each person the fruit of their own ways.    Thus, God is the One Source of all things -- i.e., the question is posed in scripture: “Does evil befall a city, unless the LORD has done it?” (Amos 3:6 RSV).   And what does the scriptures state is the source of darkness and evil:  “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things” (Isa 45:7 KJV).   Yet, man who rejects knowledge does not have the capacity to even begin to understand the reality of the world in which he presently finds himself -- often as a guest and servant of the Left Hand.   And this is true to the degree that even servants are ordained by the power of the left hand to test and immerse mankind in the experiences of life that will eventually bring about their soul's perfection.   Thus, Peter further portrays the proverbial Simon Magus as a power of the left hand who has been raised up in order to bring trial and judgment to the lost prodigal sons, in order to insure the necessary growth and mental/spiritual development -- i.e., Peter states of Simon Magus: "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."     Further, the diseases that can be inflicted by the prince of the left hand, is as much mental and spiritual, as it is physical -- i.e., those who lie "...under the sway of Satan, who will not allow what lies under the unclean spirits to understand the truth and power of God", can in no manner understand higher spiritual knowledge or reality.

Once understood, there is no such thing as evil -- and what man portrays as evil is that force of correction which serves an important reality in the development and evolution of mankind as the lost prodigal sons.   In the writings of Clement, the 2nd century Bishop of Alexandria, it is explained that: “But among the lies, the false prophets also told some true things. And in reality they prophesied ‘in an ecstasy,’ as the servants of the apostate”.    Using the early Christian writing known as the Shepherd of Hermas (see Shepherd Of Hermas ), Clement then explains: “And the Shepherd, the angel of repentance, says to Hermas, of the false prophet: ‘For he speaks some truths. For the devil fills him with his own spirit, if perchance he may be able to cast down any one from what is right.’ All things, therefore, are dispensed from heaven for good, ‘that by the Church may be made known the manifold wisdom of God, according to the eternal foreknowledge, which He purposed in Christ.’ Nothing withstands God: nothing opposes Him: seeing He is Lord and omnipotent. Further, the counsels and activities of those who have rebelled, being partial, proceed from a bad disposition, as bodily diseases from a bad constitution, but are guided by universal Providence to a salutary issue, even though the cause be productive of disease. It is accordingly the greatest achievement of divine Providence, not to allow the evil, which has sprung from voluntary apostasy, to remain useless, and for no good, and not to become in all respects injurious. For it is the work of the divine wisdom, and excellence, and power, not alone to do good (for this is, so to speak, the nature of God, as it is of fire to warm and of light to illumine), but especially to ensure that what happens through the evils hatched by any, may come to a good and useful issue, and to use to advantage those things which appear to be evils, as also the testimony which accrues from temptation”.

Thus, Simon Magus has been raised up (by God) as a power of the left hand in order to bring trials and judgment to the lost prodigal sons.   Why?   In order to insure the necessary growth and mental/spiritual development -- i.e., this is confirmed where Peter states of Simon Magus: "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".   The term diseases from a spiritual sense, can indicate any and all the afflictions that mankind endures while he is in this world.   And within these words of Peter are contained a profound truth that all believers today must begin to come to terms with.   The Power of God is so all-encompassing, that even the apostate teachers and prophets still serve the Lord.   So, if we pose the question: Is the present Christian Church the Church of God?   Yes -- But not in the manner that most Christians would understand.   Is it not forewarned and written that: “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness’” (Matt 7:22-23 NAS).   Therefore, it is established that even among those who prophesy, cast out demons, and perform many great miracles in the name of the Lord, they are as Simon Magus, and have no part in the teachings of TheWay and the Kingdom.  

In view of all the countless doomsday prophets who have in every generation predicted the End Times -- the predictions of the Second Coming of a Messiah who they claim will inaugurate the Kingdom upon the earth -- we must recognize that either the predictions are wrong, or that an intelligent seeker would question what is the nature of these seemingly End Times prophesies?    Peter writes that through your own Godliness you can speed up the End Times/Second Coming -- i.e., "what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming" (2 Peter 3:11-12 NIV).    And you can speed up the End Times as the Kingdom comes within you, by travailing in TheWay, and transforming your body and mind into the Living Final Temple (see Final Temple).

When it is recognized that this world is exactly as God intended it to be -- and it is in fact ordained and approved by God to be under the "...the power or right of governing and controlling; sovereign authority" of the Left Hand -- to the degree that the Prince of the Right Hand is barred by the very Laws of God from interfering in any manner with those who dwell under the authority of the Left Hand -- then Christians are directly confronted with the questions: (1) Who were the people that authored and wrote the scriptures?   (2) What is the true objectives of the authors of the scriptures?   Again, it is imperative to recognize that Paul portrays the literal written text of the scriptures as the "letter that killeth" (2 Cor 3:6) which was comprised of "Jewish fables" (Titus 1:14).   Peter portrays the scriptures as the "Books with the power to deceive" (see Power To Deceive).    Peter himself warning that those who fail to understand the nature and traditions of the mystical writings, will be led into a manifold of erroneous beliefs about God.   Thus, with respect to the positions of Peter and Paul, to ignore the witness of those who actually knew the authors of the Gospels, and understood the higher purpose of the scriptures, has been one of the gravest mistakes of that segment of the Church which called itself Orthodox. 

Once it is recognized that the authors of the scriptures were servants of what Peter portrays as the Prince of the Right Hand whose Kingdom is not of this world ("Jesus answered, 'My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight... but now My kingdom is not from here'" John 18:36 NKJ) -- that they existed in this world as true strangers and aliens who were the embodiment of the reality to be in the world and not of it -- and their presence in this realm was in spite of the ruling sovereign authority which was portrayed by Jesus as belonging exclusively to the Citizen of the Far Country -- then a number of ultra-important conclusions based upon these facts must be intelligently arrived at.   (1) The disciples of Jesus neither started, nor ordained institutional Churches of this world that would exist under the dominion and sovereignty of the Prince of the Left Hand.   (2) They did not compose scriptures that would be under the control of the god of this world for people to read from the perspective of a carnal mindset.    The fact that the people of the Churches who call themselves Christians continue to ignore the words of Jesus (see GateOfEden.com ), and still look for the Kingdom to come upon the earth in a way visible to the eyes and perception of carnal man -- demonstrates that they are totally blind to their own higher soul-reality -- and fail to understand the Laws and the sovereign powers of the Princes of the Right and Left Hands.   Moreover, their dogmatic abject ignorance demonstrates conclusively, that the congregation of believers know absolutely nothing about either the Gospels, or that which they call the Son of God/True Prophet/Logos.  

A sincere seeker will inquire: Does it matter that the authors of the scriptures held entirely different beliefs and spiritual objectives than the Christian world does today?   In fact, from a Christian perspective, the Gospels were written by those who were deemed heretics by the Church.   Moreover, from a Church dogmatic perspective, the authors of the scriptures totally rejected what the modern believer would call the divinity of Jesus as God Incarnate.   Before being corrupted by the forth century Church under the Roman Emperor Constantine, the Gospel accounts confirmed the early Ebionite Nazirene position that Jesus became the Messiah by fulfilling the Law -- and in every manner, he was a man no different than all other men (see TheTenWords.com ).   Which means that if the original authors composed their Gospels from the perspective of Jesus becoming the Messiah -- in contradistinction to the Roman doctrine that he was God incarnate -- then the manmade dogma of the Church has mentally castrated and rendered the body of believers spiritually sterile. 

  The Jesus Test: As stated in the above, Jesus explained to his disciples why the people of this world could not comprehend the Mysteries of God -- which necessitated that he teach them in the allegorical enigma of parables which concealed the imbedded meaning from their understanding -- and stated: "The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you."    For the Church to take the position that the pagan and heathen Gentiles who grafted the dogma that Jesus was God into the Church -- and that the heathen Gentiles could understand what the original disciples of Jesus could not, is pure spiritual and intellectual lunacy.    It is proven beyond any doubt that the original Gospel accounts stated that Jesus was a man who became the Messiah at his baptism in the Jordan (see TheTenWords.com ) -- and that the disciples not only learned all truths plainly -- but these same disciples walked with Jesus daily -- talked with him daily -- and even had their minds opened to the inner spiritual meaning of the scriptures: "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45) -- and yet, the Church expects the congregations to believe that the Romans and Greeks who were totally pagan in their thinking and mindset, understood what the original disciples could not?    In the words of Thomas Jefferson: "Ignorance is preferable to error, and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing than he who believes what is wrong" (Notes on Virginia, 1782).   In this example, the fact that the Church has rejected the teachings of the original disciples, and have instead adopted the dogma of pagan Rome, means that so long as the Christians continue to embrace this error, it will remain impossible for them to find the Truth.   And because the dogma of the Churches have mentally and spiritually flat-lined the necessary growth and development of the congregation of believers, the Christians have rejected knowledge, and adopted what Paul portrayed as the most elementary belief that is representative of the beginning of TheWay.   Moreover, the fact that the Church of Constantine actually edited and corrupted the very words that Christians believe were spoken by God directly to mankind -- words containing a meaning that was necessary to comprehend the true meaning of the Gospel -- and that after totally corrupting the very words spoken by God (see TheTenWords.com ) in order to adopt a totally pagan dogma, Christians promote the insanity that they are the approved people of God.    And, that as apostate believers, that they somehow possess the perception and understanding to comprehend the true meaning of the Gospel that those who were portrayed as "without", were totally blind to.    And when sincere seekers of Truth attempted to warn the people of their pagan dogmatic folly, they turned upon the bearers of Truth in order to silence them.    Perhaps a perfect example of the fate of those who openly opposed the Church and/or state-church alliances, is the case of Giordano Bruno who was burned at the stake for rejecting the doctrine that Jesus was God incarnate.

The reality of the Church today is seen in the fact that the modern believer holds absolutely nothing in common with the authors of the Gospels -- and even the true nature and objectives of the scriptures themselves remains virtually unknown to the modern world of believers.    Where the Church which is comprised of those who were portrayed as being "without",  blindly perceives the scriptures as an historical account, the author's of the scriptures placed absolutely no significance to their historical value whatsoever.   In fact, a vast majority of scriptures that were even more important than those which are presently used by the Church, were destroyed because the written account conflicted with those scriptures which the Church eventually adopted.   Further, even the present set of scriptures were edited (see http://BibleCorruption.com ) to suppress the historical impossibilities which were written directly into the text, in order to inhibit believers from reading them literally. 

Open up nearly any reference source and you will see the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus condemned as heretics.   Why?   Of course they are heretics from the perception and understanding of the people who dwell under the sovereign control and power of the Citizen of the Far Country.   Thus, because this world and all its institutions lie under the control of the god of this world, Jesus warned his disciples that the "...hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God" (John 16:1-2 NAS).    So the fact that the Church of the AntiChrist (see Church Of The AntiChrist) condemns the disciples of the Prince of the Right Hand who is not of this world, is in and of itself a witness to their genuine spirituality.   And to even suggest that these same disciples who were condemned and hunted down as heretics, composed scriptures that literally declared what Jesus called the Sacred Secrets of the Kingdom in the literal text of the written word, amounts to little more than intellectual and spiritual insanity!!!

None of these realities can be understood, without first understanding why God ordained this world to be under the sovereignty, power and control of what Peter portrays as the Prince of the Left Hand -- i.e., the Citizen of the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son.   And just as important is the fact that the prodigal son must himself return to the Kingdom of the Father (see GateOfEden.com).   And in the manner of a true Trojan Horse, while the scriptures provide a false facade on the outside (of the text), concealed within the allegorical narrative of the scriptures lies the necessary knowledge to empower the prodigal son to prevail over the Citizen of the Far Country, and overcome the forces of the Left Hand of Correction.   

A reasonable question would be: If the scriptures are not historical, then just what are they?   And why do they appear to be historical if they are not?   The factual reality that is not at all understood by the modern believer is that while the scriptures are composed in what, on the surface of the text of the written word, appears to the unenlightened reader to be an historical narrative -- this seemingly historical perspective is merely a cloak for an entirely different and more important purpose that is concealed within the quasi-historical garb of the writings -- and is in fact representative of what can only be portrayed as an allegorical Trojan Horse -- used by highly advanced souls as a means to induce carnal man into unknowingly serving a higher spiritual order.    When Jesus described those who were "without ..the House", he stated that they were "...ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding" (Mark 4:11-12 NIV) -- and Paul very clearly states that this organic blindness is true even of those who are in the Church and committed themselves to the teachings of Jesus.  Very plainly Paul warns that unless they evolve into a state of spiritual maturity, that these same committed Christians will reject the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery of the Gospel).    And the fact that the scriptures and Gospel accounts are not at all historical -- but is in fact spiritual with a potential of the highest importance to the community of faith-based believers -- is representative of a higher realty that the modern Church is not even prepared to come to terms with.   Like Dorothy who has had the innate ability to return home throughout her journey in the Land of Oz -- and was not in need of any clerical wizardry or hocus pocus rituals -- when the potential of the scriptures is realized, and the Key of Knowledge properly applied, the Gospels provide the prodigal son or daughter who has become the true disciple of TheWay, with the ability and means to return to the Kingdom of the Father.   And this is true, only because the Gospels are far more than the historical narrative that they appear to be on the surface.

What the modern believer fails to comprehend is the fact that a highly advanced spiritual people have absolutely no use for historical writings -- and what appears in the scriptures to be an historical narrative, is representative of a series of symbols that possess the capacity to act as a catalyst intended to immerse the seeker in the transformational experience that has an alchemical effect upon the very substance of the body and organic consciousness -- permitting the seeker/disciple to fulfill the Laws within his being, and bring about the necessary Wholeness and Completion within himself.   So the great question that confronted the authors of the scriptures is this: How do you preserve and safeguard essential spiritual truths that is not only incomprehensible to the congregation of believers -- and would in fact be condemned as heresy by the great multitude of people and their religious and political leaders?   The method that has been employed by highly advanced spiritual souls throughout the ages, is to conceal and protect this essential knowledge by hiding them in plain sight.   But to even begin to understand why the scriptures are in fact an allegorical Trojan Horse, one must first understand the journey of the soul and the state of absolute conflict and persecution of those who attain to a state of spiritual enlightenment.  

While all of mankind are equally the prodigal sons who are lost in this world -- under the control of what Jesus called the Citizen of the Far Country, or what Paul portrayed as the god of this world -- and the factual reality of this world is that those who have begun, or are even in the process of awakening to their true reality -- and thereby have begun breaking loose of the almost total control exerted by the Citizen of the Far Country on all the lost prodigal sons and daughters -- these few have been perpetually hunted down as heretics by those who continue to dwell under the dominion of the god/consciousness of this world.    And while the vast multitude of mankind who dwell under the absolute control of the god of this world will attempt to reject what I am stating, Jesus himself warned that those who receive the knowledge of the Truth will be hunted down as heretics -- i.e., "...for everyone who kills you [will] think that he is offering service to God" (John 16:1-2 NAS).   And with respect to the Sacred Knowledge that could only be revealed to the inner core of disciples, Jesus warned not to give what is holy to those who can be likened to the qualities of dogs, nor to cast spiritual pearls before those men who can be likened to the qualities of swine -- and in the Homilies of his disciple Clement the Apostle Peter is quoted as stating: “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.”    Paul went one step further and proclaimed that is was not even lawful to divulge the sacred knowledge to those with profane carnal ears and understanding -- i.e., when he was "..caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor 12:4-5 NKJ).

Those who dwell under the control and power of what Paul calls the god of this world, were portrayed by Jesus as dwelling in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- and thus, they are inhibited from knowing their more distant past when they dwelt in the Kingdom with their Heavenly Father.   Because of the natural condition of the body which is comprised of earth-matter -- a condition which limits the perception and understanding of the person to that of the earth -- Jesus portrayed not only the condition of the "outer darkness" which organically limits the cognizant perception of the people, but also that condition which Jesus portrayed as The Prison.   Thus the oft ignored warning: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   In speaking of this prison which Jesus warned that “Thou shalt by no means come out from there, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (Mat 5:26), that soul which has been imprisoned by the god of this world who is the Left Hand of Correction, cannot make any progress until their debts are repaid.     And they are further inhibited by the limitations imposed upon them by the prince of the left hand from possessing the necessary esoteric knowledge which can be used as a catalyst to return to the Kingdom and the Source of their Being.   Jesus portrayed them as "...ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding" (Mark 4:11-12 NIV), because they have been imprisoned and remain under the control of the god of this world who is the Left Hand of Correction.   Thus, Peter warns that "For thus from the beginning was a law laid by God, the Creator of all things, on each of the two princes, him of the right hand and him of the left, that neither should have power over any one whom they might wish to benefit or to hurt, unless first he had sat down at the same table with them ....[and]you became servants to the prince of evil".   And when understood, Paul states the same exact warning where he writes: "What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? …Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?” (Rom 6:1-16 NKJ).   And that Paul portrays a person who claims to be a believer, and continues to sin, as an apostate who crucifies the Christ afresh -- and to whom no sacrifice can redeem because of their apostasy -- is demonstrated conclusively at TheLie.org .    

The scriptures correctly portray organic man as having an inherent blindness and inability to comprehend man's true soul and spiritual reality which effects all of mankind.   The parable of the prodigal son portrays a ruler of this world which Jesus called the Citizen of the Far Country -- and it was the squandering away of the son's inheritance on "riotous living" that caused his hardships and sufferings.   And just as important is the fact that when the prodigal son came to his senses, it is seen that he had the power to return to the Kingdom of the Father.   Some untruths with respect to the journey of the prodigal son is (1) the Father did not send an army into the Far Country to take it over -- (2) the Father did not send the elder son as a savior -- (3) neither did the prodigal son die to return to the Father's Kingdom -- (4) and in fact, there was no time-frame set forth for the return of the son.   And what this means is that every one of the modern Christians ideas of salvation, are simply not supported in the parables that Jesus taught by.   And just as important is the fact that the Church can find no satisfactory interpretation of the parable of the prodigal son, because they can't come to terms with what is represented in the personage of the elder son who remains with the Father -- portrayed as never in any measure going against the Father's Will.       

It is basically impossible for the modern Christian to even begin to interpret the parables which were designed for those who were portrayed as being "without", because they lack not only self-knowledge, but they do not at all understand the structure of their own (interior) being which can be portrayed as the cosmology of mind.    In all the parables of the Kingdom, there is an inner reality that is being portrayed that is not at all understood by the modern congregation of believers.   "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field" (Matt 13:44 NKJV).    (1) Why is the treasure hidden?   (2) Where is the field that a seeker must search?   (3) Why, when the man uncovers the treasure, does he leave it hidden?   (4) And why does he go and sell all that he has, so he can buy the field and possess the hidden treasure?   It is impossible to answer these questions without having an understanding of one's own cosmology of mind and being.   

In the parable of the prodigal son, what Peter portrays as the Prince of the Right Hand is never portrayed as having even a presence in this world.   There is no Churches in the Far Country that are the ones approved by the Father.   There is no government in the Far Country that is approved.   Why?   Because every aspect of the Far Country lies under the dominion of the Citizen who exists as the sovereign and ordained ruler of this world.   And this is because the Prince of the Right Hand has no place in this world -- i.e., when questioned by Pilate, Jesus said that his Kingdom was not of this world: "Jesus answered, 'My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight... but now My kingdom is not from here'" (John 18:36 NKJ).   Why?   Because all of this world belongs to the Citizen of the Far Country which is the Left Hand of Correction.   And the parable of the treasure portrays the Kingdom as a reality that is hidden within a field, because the Kingdom of the Prince of the Right Hand is within each of us -- i.e., "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).   Thus, the Kingdom will never come upon the earth -- there are no Churches of the Prince of the Right Hand in this world -- neither are their governments -- because the Kingdom already exists within each of us, and you must "...sell all that [you have} and buy that field".    And what is it that you must rid yourself of in order to possess the field that you already discovered the Kingdom hidden within?   You must fulfill the meaning of the word Ebionite -- i.e., the "poor ones" -- and you must become totally poor to the thinking, mindset and lifestyle of this world -- i.e., you must fulfill the reality to be in the world and not of it.   The mystic St. Teresa of Avila described the cosmology of mind and being as interior castles. “The soul,” writes St. Teresa, is as “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions” (Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila).  

St. Teresa is not only correct, but she portrays a reality that modern man does not at all understand.   If our soul is as a single diamond -- within which, there are many rooms -- then that condition which Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" is as a closet in the basement dungeon.   In the parable, the man who discovers the treasure hidden in the field, is the seeker/disciple who cracks open the door of the closet, and gets a glimpse of the soul-diamond within which there are many castles or rooms of great splendor.   And getting a glimpse, he realizes that he has to become the embodiment of the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, in order to possess the field by totally denying the Citizen of the Far Country the ability to siphon off his inheritance.    Thus, there are neither Churches or governments of this world that have any part in the spiritual reality of the Kingdom -- because the Prince of the Left Hand has sovereign dominion over all that exists in this world.   And at best, the Churches of this world are Shadow Churches -- but are not in any measure the real thing.   And in the same way that the scriptures which were created by the servants of the Prince of the Right Hand, were in their original form said to be Living -- because they were imbued with the same cosmology, as is man himself.    Within the textual body lies concealed beyond the reach of the god of this world and his servants, the True message which is allegorically hidden within the narrative.   And in the same way that organic man is blind to the Kingdom within, so too is organic man totally blind to the hidden meaning of the scriptures.    Thus, in the same way that Paul and the other biblical authors warn that man's higher reality beyond the closet door within the soul-diamond in which he dwells within the "outer darkness" is inconceivable to his carnal organic understanding (see Mystery Of The Gospel) -- i.e., the people of this world are "...ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding" (Mark 4:11-12 NIV) -- organic man remains totally blind to the inner spiritual meaning of the scriptures -- which have been given unto him in the manner of a Trojan Horse -- and within the body of the Trojan Horse lies the necessary esoteric knowledge that has the potential to empower the seeker/disciple to prevail over the Prince of the Left Hand, and gain entrance to the soul-diamond and the Kingdom within.    And this Knowledge of the Soul and the Divine Manna of the Inner Kingdom, is the Spiritual Knowledge that was said to be too secret to be revealed to the organic people of this world who dwell under the dominion of the Prince of the Left Hand -- and this Spiritual Knowledge is portrayed in the word Gnosis.  

The second century Christian Elder Valentinus portrayed the esoteric knowledge concealed within the allegorical text of the scriptures, as well as the oral teachings that were not put into the written word, as differing from True Gnosis -- i.e., Valentinus stated that: "Gnosis was distinct from the secret teachings they only revealed to initiates once they had reached a certain level of progression."   Why?   Because Gnosis is the Sacred Knowledge imparted directly to the seeker/disciple by the indwelling Logos, and can have no part in this world which is under the dominion of the Prince of the Left Hand.   Valentinius quoted Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians when he made reference to Gnosis Kardias -- or, the enlightened eyes of the heart.    Thus, Paul writes: "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints" (Eph 1:18).   And that Paul wanted very much to speak about the Mystery of the Gospel to the Ephesians, but could not, is the reason he portrayed himself as an ambassador in bonds: "And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak" (see Eph 6:19-20).   And when the question is asked: How does a seeker/disciple obtain these enlightened eyes of the heart?   Very briefly, by fulfilling the role of a virgin who awaits the Lord with the oil of purification -- and by becoming the "good ground" that permits the necessary expansion of the facilities of mind to be brought about, which enables the seeker/disciple to be taught by the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet.   And in the same way that in the parable of the ten virgins it was said to those who had failed to prepare themselves with the oil of purification that "Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you" -- even though they believed and had called upon the Lord and was awaiting his coming. 

The Prince of the Right Hand has no presence in this world in the form of a Church or government, because the Kingdom is within you -- and it is this inner soul-reality that the Prince of the Left Hand who rules this world, remains beyond his reach.   A profound reality that every believer today must eventually confront, is the fact that the original teachings of Jesus known as TheWay, were of a purely spiritual nature -- and they have absolutely nothing in common with what has come to be called modern faith-based Christianity -- sometimes portrayed as Churchianity.   Thus, the words: "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life" (John 6:63 NKJ).   But because the modern Church has its lineage through Pagan Rome and that segment of the Church which called itself Orthodox, the modern believer has absolutely no idea as to the original spiritual objectives of the teachings of TheWay which Jesus revealed to his original disciples as a witness to all of mankind.

Jesus taught to call no man on earth your father, because you have only One Father.   Jesus taught not to be called teacher or rabbi, because their is only One Teacher.   To the believer's own detriment, the most important Gospel teachings are not only ignored, but they are not at all understood.   A most important reality is presented in the command of Jesus to his disciples that, for those who will follow him, that there be only One Teacher (see The True Prophet) -- and the very core principles of what separates the New Covenant from the Old where one man does not teach another (Heb 8:10-11) -- because "They will all be taught by God" (Jn 6:45).   And this great truth is the very foundation of what Paul portrays as a sin of the flesh when a member of the congregation even suggests a doctrinal faction (see No Manmade Opinions Or Sects).    Yet, the Christian world remains consumed and bound by innumerable wolves in sheep/clergy attire who are counterfeit shepherds -- divided by countless factions, opinions and carnal dogmatic interpretations of scriptures that man remains totally blind to the true meaning of.    And from an original Gospel perspective, all these counterfeit shepherds and shadow churches, are all the ministers of the Prince of the Left Hand who Paul warns the people who call themselves Christian will worship in the place of God (see Church Of The AntiChrist).  

When Jesus was asked when the Kingdom would come upon the earth, he stated that the Kingdom would never come upon the earth as men predict, because it is within you (see GateOfEden.com ) -- yet, like the blind Pharisees, the Christian world continues to look for the Kingdom to come upon the earth in what they call the Second Coming and/or End Times.   Yet, in total contradistinction, Jesus taught his disciples how to enter in through the "narrow strait gate" within their own hearts and minds, and pass from this world into the Kingdom.   And this Spiritual Knowledge that was received by those who succeeded in gaining entrance into the Kingdom, and learned from the True Prophet who was also called the Logos, the Son of God, and even the Teacher of Righteousness, was called Gnosis -- i.e., the Divine Manna of the Kingdom (see The Gnostic Spiritual Dilemma).   And in the Gospel account, those who were able to receive this spiritual Gnosis/Knowledge, were said to be "In The House" -- while the people of this world who could only be taught in allegory and parable, were said to be "without [the House]".   

In the time of Jesus and the ensuing centuries of our Common Era, the original disciples and followers were known as Ebionites of the Nazirene Vow -- and thus, the early Church writer Epiphanius wrote that the name Ebionite "...was at first ...a common name for all Christians" (Epiphanius Adv. Haer., xxix. 1).   And among the earliest of non-scriptural Ebionite writings were the Homilies and Recognitions of Clement, who was the disciple of the Apostle Peter -- and Peter is directly quoted throughout these earliest of writings.   And when I write that present-day Christianity has virtually nothing in common with the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- and especially the Commandment of Jesus that there be only One Teacher (see The True Prophet) -- a truly important original teaching is preserved in the Homilies of Clement where Peter is quoted as stating: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without". (see The Spiritual Disenfranchisement Of The Mind).    And in the same way that present-day Christianity is a religion of innumerable teachers and almost countless sects and factions, the reality of these words are totally incomprehensible to the modern Church.   Yet, these words are not only representative of the very core foundation of the Gospel teachings, but they are representative of the original objectives of the New Covenant.  

In making reference to The True Prophet who Jesus portrayed as the One Teacher, Peter warns that: "Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples”.   If we ask the question: What is being said to the believer who desires to be faithful to the Gospel Teachings?   In the same way that the believer is commanded to seek out the One Teacher, and the commandment that "...when the law of God (scriptures) is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind" -- it is being stated that there is only One Source of Truth -- and that the wisdom of man will misguide the seeker.   By design, human reasoning is incapable of understanding the true meaning of the scriptures -- i.e., "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind."   And neither should you listen to other men's gravely flawed interpretations of the scriptures -- i.e., "...For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".   Jesus taught that there is only one Source of Truth, and the disciple/seeker must learn directly from that One Teacher.   And thus, these words which are representative of the core Gospel teachings, are inconceivable to the modern faith-based believer who is divided and disenfranchised from the very essence and objectives of the Gospel teachings -- overwhelmed and anchored to a carnal mindset that is of the "outer darkness" -- spiritually disenfranchised by innumerable manmade opinions, factions and sects which totally alienate the believer from the Truth and the Kingdom.

In plain sight the esoteric knowledge necessary to begin to understand the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom is concealed and hidden from the believers who remain carnal, under a cloak of what appears to be an historical narrative of the scriptures -- an historical cloak which Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see Enigma Of The Written Word).  Unbeknown to those who dwell in the "outer darkness" of mind and being, the code to begin the process of digging beneath the allegorical garb of the written word of the scriptures, was portrayed by Jesus as the Key of Knowledge.   Like a true Trojan Horse, the textual body of the scriptures is written in such a way that the people who dwell under the control of the god of this world, will embrace it and preserve its text -- hailing it as the true word of their god.     And while the written word will provide them preparatory wisdom and knowledge, it remains that the whole of the written text is an allegorical presentation that conceals from those who dwell in the "outer darkness" the great spiritual truths that they would neither comprehend, and would condemn as heresy.    Jesus commanded his disciples to seek out the One Teacher (see True Prophet) --  and Peter warns: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind."   And respecting the True Prophet, Peter explains that "...And therefore I advise not only wise men, but indeed all men who have a desire of knowing what is advantageous to them, that they seek after the True Prophet; for it is He alone who knoweth all things, and who knoweth what and how every man is seeking. For He is within the mind of every one of us, but in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative; but He works in those who seek after that which is profitable to their souls, and kindles in them the light of knowledge. Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other. But He is soon found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth, and whose souls are not taken possession of by wickedness. For He is present with those who desire Him in the innocence of their spirits, who bear patiently, and draw sighs from the bottom of their hearts through love of the truth; but He deserts malevolent minds, because as a prophet He knows the thoughts of every one. And therefore let no one think that he can find Him by his own wisdom, unless, as we have said, he empty his mind of all wickedness, and conceive a pure and faithful desire to know Him. For when any one has so prepared himself, He Himself as a prophet, seeing a mind prepared for Him, of His own accord offers Himself to his knowledge” (see True Prophet).

The problem is that the very core Gospel teachings as presented in the above, is Gnosticism in its purist sense.   The word Gnosis is indicative of Spiritual Knowledge that is imparted to those who can receive it, directly from God.   It is impossible for one man to teach another man Gnosis.   It is impossible for a man to write Gnosis in a book for another to read.   Gnosis has absolutely nothing to do with an alternative historical tradition -- neither is Gnosis pertaining to any historical persons -- and Gnosis is the true Knowledge of self, God, and the higher reality of the soul and the spirit that is incomprehensible to organic man.     

The journey of the soul is portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son who leaves the Kingdom of the Father to travel into what Jesus portrays as the Far Country (see Prodigal Son).     While the son is in this world which is very much as God's School House (see DivineStrategery.com), the son must return to the Kingdom of the Father (see GateOfEden.com ) -- which is accomplished in the parable when the son comes to his senses, and desires to be a servant of the Father.   It is important to recognize that there is no savior who exempts the son from the necessary requirements -- and neither is the journey fulfilled because the son physically dies.   The son can only return to the Kingdom on his own volition, by following in TheWay.   And in this respect the original Gospel teachings portrayed the Kingdom as coming within the body/mind of the disciple who picked up their own cross and travailed in TheWay -- i.e., in the Second Epistle of Clement this important teaching is preserved with respect to the coming of the Kingdom within the individual: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”    What this means is that the Kingdom which carnal man perpetually predicts must come upon the earth, can only come within the individual who overcomes the Law in the manner that Jesus did within themselves.   

The historical Jesus became the pattern for all of mankind to follow, because he was the first of the prodigal sons to complete the journey in TheWay, and return to the Father in the Kingdom.   The original Gospels confirmed the position of the Ebionites who were the direct disciples of Jesus, that he became the Messiah/Christ at his baptism in the Jordan by fulfilling the Law within himself.    And this fact is confirmed by all the pre-Nicene Church authorities and biblical texts (see TheTenWords.com).    Yet, in what can only be understood as a total rejection of both the Gospels, and the very words of God spoken directly to mankind, the Church continues to reject the original Gospel teachings, and worships their brother Jesus in place of God.   Further, in dogmatically exempting themselves from the need to fulfill the Law in the manner that Jesus did,

From an intellectual and spiritual perspective, the congregation of believers have remained flat-lined in their growth and development, because ultra important teachings have been corrupted and edited out of the scriptures.    In the words of Prof. Bart D. Ehrman in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, he warns us that: "...theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy" -- which orthodoxy was to bring the text of the Bible into conformity with the doctrines and tenets of the Church of the Roman Emperor Constantine.   As documented in the article BibleCorruption.com , the Gentile believers who portrayed themselves as Orthodox Christians, had been editing and in their manner of thinking, correcting the scriptures since the first century.   In his Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament, by Dr. F. H. Scrivener, he writes that: "In the second century we have seen too many instances of attempts to tamper with the text of Scripture, some merely injudicious, others positively dishonest". Scrivener states that "it is no less true to fact than paradoxical in sound, that the worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected, originated within 100 years after it was composed: and that Irenaeus and the African Fathers, and the whole Western, with a portion of the Syrian Church" used inferior manuscripts.  Under the title of Bible in the Church, the Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics writes: "In the first two centuries nearly all the various readings of the New Testament came into existence, the majority of them by deliberate alteration of the text, many for the sake of style, and several in the interests of dogma… Often readings were rejected as falsifications of heretics, but often the heretics were right in their counter-complaint… Every province, every order, every monastery, has a tradition of its own…"   If every province, every order, and every monastery in the first two centuries had their own version of the scriptures which supported their favorite doctrines of belief, then we must seriously ask the question as to what has been passed down to us today?   Show me the modern Christian who promotes the idea that their beliefs are from God because they are supported by the scriptures, and I will show you believers who have failed to follow the advice of the Apostle and "Test all things".

  The Journey Of The Soul: One of the most important teachings of Jesus that was removed from the Gospel accounts was the teaching on the journey of the soul that evolves to perfection and completion over the course of many lifetimes.   Thus, the prodigal son who fails to return to the Kingdom does not complete the journey and go to heaven merely because he physically dies -- and this journey must be completed over the course of how ever many lifetimes is required.   In what is known as the Gospel Of The Nazirenes, the teaching on the soul's journey which is preserved in the Book of Job in the Septuagint, and not translated into English, is noted by a number of authorities (see Teachings On Soul Evolution).    Thus, it reads: Job ii. 9: "And I am a wanderer, changing place after place and house after house." 

In the Gospel Of the Nazirenes we can see preserved the more complete interaction with Nicodemus on the need to be born again to enter the Kingdom which is presented in the 37th Chapter: "Jesus sat in the porch of the temple, and some came to learn His doctrine, and one said to Him, Master, what do you teach concerning life? And He said to them, Blessed are they who suffer many experiences, for they will be made perfect through suffering; they will be as the angels of God in heaven and will die no more. Neither will they be born any more, for death and birth have no more dominion over them.  They who have suffered and have overcome will be made pillars of the temple of my God, and they will go out no more. I say to you, except you be born again of water and of fire, you cannot see the kingdom of God.  And a certain Rabbi, Nicodemus, came to Him by night for fear of the Jews, and said to Him, How can a man be born again when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born again?  Jesus answered Except a man be born again of flesh and of spirit, he can not enter into the kingdom of God. The wind blows where it lists, and you hear the sound of it, but can not tell from where it comes or to where it goes.  The light shines from the East even to the West; out of the darkness. The sun rises and sets into darkness again; so is it with man, from the ages to the ages.  When it cometh from the darkness, it is that he has lived before, and when it goes down again into darkness, it is that he may rest for a little, and there after again exist.  So through many changes must you be made perfect, as it is written in the book of Job, 'I am a wanderer, changing place after place and house after house, until I come into the city and mansion which is eternal.  And Nicodemus said to him, How can these things be? And Yeshua answered , You are a teacher in Israel, and do not understand these things? Truly, we speak that which we know, and bear witness to that which we have seen, and you do not receive our witness.  If I tell you of earthly things, and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you of heavenly things? No one ascends into heaven, unless they descended out of heaven, even the son or daughter of man which is in Heaven."     

As is demonstrated in the subheading The Biblical Foundational Mindset, with the teachings on the journey of the soul removed, it is virtually impossible for the modern Christian to get a true sense of the most important Gospel teachings.   Moreover, because the Christians have been denied the knowledge of the Laws which orchestrate each person's life -- causing the Christians to ignore the many warnings in the New Testament that is contrary to their manmade Church dogma -- it is easily demonstrated that the most common Christian beliefs about salvation are actually condemned in the New Testament (see The Ten Minute Test).   And while Church dogma which is derived from Pagan Rome teaches salvation by faith and belief, the Bible itself condemns complacent Christians as apostates to the Kingdom who crucify the Christ afresh -- and warn that the fate of the complacent lukewarm believer is actually far worse than the fate of the unbelievers.   And because of the removal of the teachings of the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection and completion over the course of many lifetimes, what the New Testament actually teaches makes no sense to the congregation of believers.  

The modern Christian world has as much in common with the religion of the disciples of Jesus, as does the Summer Solstice with the Winter Solstice -- the terrain of Antarctica with that of the Amazon rain forest -- the indigenous life of cave men, with that of the New York City jet set scene in the Hamptons.   In the same way that light and darkness are polar opposites, then the religion of the disciples of Jesus was a purely spiritual living religion with purely spiritual objectives -- seeking to enter the Kingdom and learn directly from the True Prophet -- while modern Christianity is a religion of the flesh that is in every aspect dead in comparison.     

When it was realized that the Mother Church in Rome was purely pagan, the Reformation was brought about in order to undo the spiritual disenfranchisement that a thousand years of secular control and institutionalization had done to the religion of Jesus.   And while many of the framers of the Reformation were sincere, they could no more revive and restore the original Gospel teachings, than an archeologist could restore a mummy to life.     And while their claim was that all they needed was the Bible, the fact that they knew absolutely nothing about the authors of the scriptures -- in conjunction with the fact that their religious beliefs, their objectives, and their concepts of even life itself, was so radically opposite to that of the authors of the scriptures, had the effect of rendering them blind to the true meaning of the scriptures, and incapable of understanding its true purpose and objective reality.   If it was true that the mother Church of Rome threw away what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge, then the framers of the Reformation never knew it even existed.      

In blind ignorance, the Christian world has totally closed their eyes to the fact that the very disciples and followers who walked daily with the historical Jesus -- those who learned directly from him -- those who sat with him over the course of months and years in countless discussions where all questions about the purpose of life, God and the Kingdom were explored and answered -- those who had themselves succeeded in entering the Heavenly Kingdom through the inner "narrow strait gate" and witnessed and experienced all Truths -- are today rejected by the modern Christian world and condemned as heretics.   The disciple Peter, James who is historically known as the Brother of Jesus, as well as others among the disciples, knew and understood the reality of the One Teacher who they called the True Prophet, because they gained entrance to the Kingdom, and were taught directly by the True Prophet.   Paul tells of his own journey into the Kingdom when he was "..caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor 12:4-5 NKJ).   Thus we must ask: Why was "...it is not lawful for a man to utter" what he experienced in the Kingdom?   Because man in his organic "natural" state of mind and consciousness will find the higher reality of his soul and the Kingdom to be incomprehensible.     Paul writes that the confirmed and baptized believers who he had personally taught what he called the testimony of Christ -- believers who Paul states had received all the gifts of the spirit -- Paul states were yet too carnal to even begin to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom -- which Mysteries Paul warned they would reject as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery). 

  An Inconvenient Dilemma: If the modern Christian knew anything whatsoever about the authors of the Gospels, they would be cognizant of the fact that from an original Gospel perspective, what would be seen as an historical account would be totally worthless from a spiritual perspective.    In condemning the biblical authors as heretics, the congregation of believers have so alienated themselves from the core Gospel objectives, that in every way they have made themselves apostates to the Truth and the Kingdom.    The great dilemma is seen in the fact that the congregation of believers have read their own mindset and objectives into spiritual writings that they have absolutely no understanding of, in order to satisfy their own goals -- goals which have absolutely nothing in common with the original goals and objectives of the authors.   And if we pose the question: Does it matter?   The answer depends upon whether you believe in the religion of the Roman Emperors i.e., religious concepts and goals which have absolutely nothing in common with the teachings of Jesus and the spiritual goals of the authors of the Gospel accounts.  

 

n their total rejection of Spiritual Knowledge, the modern Christian has so alienated themselves from the purpose and objectives of the Gospels, that they are tenfold more the blind guides than was the Pharisees who Jesus condemned for having thrown away the Key of Knowledge.   In their failure to understand Paul's warning to the Corinthians (see Mystery) with respect to the inability of the mind of organic untransformed man to understand the true meaning of the scriptures, or the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom,  the modern believer is not even prepared to grasp the true message and meaning of the scriptures.   And in completely throwing away the Key of Knowledge, the manmade dogma of the Church has had the detrimental effect of locking the Christians out of the Kingdom -- resulting in the great dilemma of failing to do as Jesus taught and commanded, and bring about the very core objectives of the Gospel.  

When the modern believer opens the Gospels and sees an historical account, they are totally ignorant of the fact that the authors of the Gospels did not at all write about history.   And in the rejection and condemnation of the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus, the whole spiritual meaning and purpose of the Gospel remains an enigma to the Christian world today.   Why were the Ebionites condemned and rejected as heretics?   Because they rejected the very pagan doctrines of belief which were held by the Greeks and Romans who were too heathen to understand the spiritual essence of the Gospel teachings -- doctrines and beliefs which were essentially Mithraic, and has little in common with the original Gospel teachings and objectives.   Historically, it is documented and warned that the most spiritual versions of the Gospels were never given over to the Gentiles (see Most Important Scriptures Never Given To The Gentiles).   And because the Greeks and Romans were too heathen and pagan to understand the spiritual concepts that Jesus revealed to his core disciples, it was warned in the Epistle of Peter And James that, if this esoteric knowledge should ever become lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error".   And because the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus, along with those Spiritual (Gnostic) Christians who faithfully preserved this framework of esoteric knowledge were hunted down and murdered by the Church of Constantine -- and their scriptures burnt and destroyed -- the Church had thrown away what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge which is necessary to unlock both the true meaning of the scriptures, as well as the inner "narrow strait gate" that provides entrance to the Kingdom that Jesus taught to seek and find.  

Why does the Gospel account portray Jesus as rejecting the Pharisees as blind guides?   Because they had thrown away the Key of Knowledge.   "Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered" (Luke 11:52 KJV).   And with respect to the proper use of the Key of Knowledge, Jesus stated: "But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in" (Matt 23:13 KJV).   With respect to these ignored and gravely misunderstood words: What was the seeker supposed to use the Key of Knowledge to enter in?   Enter in the Inner Kingdom -- coming into the Presence of the True Prophet -- where the Truth of all Creation would be revealed to them.    And the fact that the carnal Jews has thrown away the Key of Knowledge -- in the same manner that the Church of Rome which called itself Orthodox threw away the Key of Knowledge -- was the reality portrayed in the words: "...hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in"  

The Gospel teachings of Jesus known as TheWay was intended to free the people from the cloud of profound ignorance imposed upon them by their organic limitations of the body, and open the door to higher understanding, knowledge and awareness.    An important insight into the very essence of the genuine and original teachings of TheWay is contained in an article in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”    What is expressed in these words is of the utmost importance, in that the original teachings of Jesus was not the belief in the Mithraic sun-god of the Church of Constantine -- but rather, the means to make all Christians prophets and mystics as demonstrated in the words: "...From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.  

That modern Christianity has very little in common with the original teachings of Jesus, is demonstrated in the words that the objective of the teachings of TheWay was to bring about "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”  -- which has absolutely nothing in common with the blind faith dogmatized Church that came into being in the fourth century.   And, just as equally important to understand, is that "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”  has absolutely nothing to do with the expansion of the physical brain -- but rather, the development of those areas of mind that the physical brain which is of an earth-vibrational frequency, does not support.   

Until it is recognized that present-day Christianity has absolutely nothing in common with the original objectives and teachings of Jesus and TheWay, then little to no spiritual progress can be made.     Once understood for what they presently are, the modern doctrines of the Church are in fact a synthesis of the most elementary faith-based entry-level Gospel concepts that Paul referred to as the entry-level "testimony of Christ", with the doctrines of Mithraicism which was the Universal Religion of the Roman Empire.    With the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the long suspected evidence was suddenly proven -- i.e., biblical scholars such as A. Powell Davies openly confirmed that: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).    And that, in order for the synthesis of religions to be brought about by the Emperor Constantine, (1) Jesus was declared to be God (see The Ten Words ); (2) the most corrupted copies of the Gospels were further corrupted in order to make them support the doctrines of Pagan Rome (see http://BibleCorruption.com ); (3) and the true, spiritual disciples of Jesus were hunted down by the armies of the emperor, and murdered (see The Death Of The Religion Of Jesus ).    And in the conversion of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay into a faith-based pagan religion, the necessary esoteric knowledge was lost, and mankind was plunged into the abyss of spiritual ignorance.

What is the "testimony of Christ" that Paul taught the congregation at Corinth?   Paul portrays the higher realty of the soul and the Kingdom as the reality of “…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).   So, the question then becomes: How do you start to convey to entry-level faith-based believers what is  "...so astounding that they are beyond a man's power to describe or put in words"???   The only means available is to create a system of allegorical symbols that act as catalysts which begin the process of "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.    Thus, Paul warns the congregation at Corinth: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).    Spiritually discerned indicated that they are spiritually revealed as the disciple applies the Key of Knowledge to gain entrance to the Kingdom, and is able to receive the Sacred Manna/Gnosis from the True Prophet.   Paul then goes on and warns these believers of a natural mind who were baptized and dedicated to Christ: “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 NAS).   Thus, these believers could only be taught the doctrine of Jesus Christ and him crucified (1 Cor 2:2), because they were not yet spiritual men -- but rather, they were men of flesh and still very much “babes in Christ”.   Paul then explains that: “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able” (1 Cor 3:2 NAS - Spiritual Defeat).    

Why are the scriptures -- as well as the Gospel accounts -- all allegorical symbols that must have the Key of Knowledge applied to them in order to begin to perceive the true meaning of the written word which Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth"??? (2 Cor 3:6).    Because man's higher soul-reality and the Kingdom is utterly incomprehensible to his very limited organic human understanding -- an understanding which must undergo the process of "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” in order to perceive and comprehend both the essence of the Gospel, and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God.    And in its original form, the Gospel was designed to bring about the necessary physical transformation that fulfilled the Law within the disciple, and manifest within them what is portrayed as the Final Temple that enables the seeker to enter within the Holy of Holies, and learn from the True Prophet.   This transformation is brought about by becoming the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed.    And this process of expansion which brings about the transformation of body and mind, is portrayed in the words which portray the spiritual increase of those who make themselves the "good ground... [which]  …multiplying thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times” what was initially received (Mark 4:8).   

The scriptures are not at all historical accounts in the manner that they are thought of by modern Christians.   I have already demonstrated that the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom are incomprehensible even to the congregation of believers who have received the testimony of Christ.   Because man's soul and spiritual reality is incomprehensible to him, the scriptures are an allegorical presentation of symbols that act as a catalyst which, when the Key of Knowledge is properly utilized, can be used to gain entrance to the Kingdom within -- drawing the disciple into the Presence of the indwelling True Prophet -- wherein the disciple can begin to receive the revelation of All Truths.   

 

When the countless enigmas of the scriptures were presented to the framers of the Reformation, because the Church had thrown away the Key of Knowledge and were virtually blind to the true meaning of the written word, these same framers of the Reformation took a statement by Paul totally out of context, and promoted a reactionary doctrine which opposed the corruption and paganism of the Church of Rome -- and the dogma of salvation by faith alone was born.   And while Paul was making reference to the ritualization and outward observance of the Law by the carnal Jews who had themselves thrown away the Key of Knowledge, these same framers of the Reformation gave new meaning to the allegation of Jesus who portrayed the blind religious leaders of the people as those who "strained out a gnat but swallowed a camel" (Matt 23:24).   Paul was a spiritual man -- i.e., a true Gnostic -- who fully recognized that it was impossible for entry-level believers to understand the spiritual meaning of both the scriptures, as well as the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God (see Mystery Of The Gospel).   And the fact that the Church even to this day continues to ignore this warning, is truly an act of spiritual suicide.   Quoting the article The Gnostic Paul: Christians today proclaim that they are saved by faith.   And yet, Paul was a Gnostic!  Gnostic faith which is founded upon direct spiritual knowledge, is of a different order than the redemptive faith that is embraced by modern Christians.

With respect to the doctrine of salvation of (static) faith: Did Paul intend to promote the dogma that has totally undermined the modern Church and rendered it spiritually sterile?   With respect to the judgment of the Jews as Christ Killers on the part of the Christians, Paul warns that if the Gentiles judge the Jews, that they will dissolve their own covenant with God -- i.e., Paul warns: "Do not be arrogant, but be afraid. For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either" (Rom 11:17-21 NIV).   Paul portrays the Ebionite Nazirenes as a "remnant" (Rom 11:5) that is representative of a cultivated olive tree that the Gentiles are dependent upon to be grafted into.   Yet, the Gentiles who called themselves Orthodox not only ignored this warning of Paul, but when they hunted down and murdered this Ebionite Nazirene remnant, and burnt their more spiritual scriptures, they cast themselves into a Spiritual Diaspora -- the resulting ignorance and spiritual disenfranchisement, from which they have yet to emerge from.

sin crucify christ 

as well as Yeshua/Jesus himself warned that those who claim to be of God, will hunt his true disciples down and murder them.   He warned that the god of this world will blind the people to the true meaning of the Gospel -- that they will condemn the Truth and TheWay as heresy -- and in the name of Christ, they will promote a lie in the form of the doctrines of men in place of the Truth.   Further, those who Yeshua/Jesus said in the Gospels that he had himself raised up as a witness to the truth for all the world to listen to, are dismissed and rebuffed by the Church as being too Jewish to understand the true meaning of the Gospel teachings.    Thus, the question must be posed: Was Jesus such an incompetent teacher?   Incompetent to the degree that his most immediate disciples and followers could not learn what the Church would portray as the fundamentals of the Gospel?   To the degree that Martin Luther rejected three of the four Gospels -- and portrayed the Epistle of James who was not only the Brother of Yeshua/Jesus and first leader on the Church, as an Epistle of Straw!!!  What did Martin Luther know about Jesus, that was not known by his brother who was himself portrayed as being Anointed (Messiah/Christ) -- the man who was the first leader of the Jerusalem Congregation -- and the man who knew the historical Yeshua/Jesus as no one else could have?  

Faith in the message of the scriptures and the biblical authors means that the believer has faith in the validity of what is being presented -- and the fact that when the Holy Spirit came upon both James and these same disciples who Luther and the Church rejected, that the disciples became enlightened into all the Mysteries of the Kingdom.   It was promised that when Yeshua/Jesus went on to the Father, that the Teacher would come to them and reveal all the Mysteries of the Kingdom to them.   Yet, to their own spiritual demise, the modern Christian not only does not at all believe that the original followers of Jesus were enlightened by the Holy Spirit -- but they reject the very core positions that was, and continues to be, essential to bring about the original spiritual objectives of the Gospel.   That modern Christians feel comfortable embracing a religion of entirely different dogma -- i.e., the dogma of Pagan Rome -- while rejecting those who Yeshua/Jesus personally taught and revealed the Mysteries of God to -- is perhaps their greatest folly and undoing.

The result is that the modern world knows virtually nothing about the Spiritual Beliefs, the Spiritual Objectives, and the Spiritual Teachings of the original Gospel Authors -- beliefs, objectives and teachings that have nothing in common with what is taught in the Churches today.   Resulting in the fact that the modern Christian congregation of believers embrace the dogma of pagan Rome, while remaining totally ignorant of what Yeshua/Jesus actually taught.  

 

In an interview with Brian Brian McLaren by Christianity Today, he is quoted as stating: "One of the problems is that the average Christian in the average church who listens to the average Christian broadcasting has such an oversimplified understanding of both the Bible and of church history - it would be deeply disturbing for them to really learn about church history" (see Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right) -- to which statement we must pose the question: Does it matter?   If the very people who Jesus personally taught believed what can only be portrayed as radically different than the beliefs that the Church adopted when they entered a covenant with Pagan Rome -- whereby Church dogma became subject to the dictates of the emperor.   If it can be proven that core principles embraced by those who Jesus personally taught, are rejected as heresy today.    And if it can be demonstrated that Jesus rejected the Pharisees because they had thrown away what he portrayed as the Key of Knowledge in their dogmatic interpretations of the scriptures -- a reality that was repeated by the Church as it became institutionalized and secularized under Pagan Rome -- and because the modern Christian world remains totally ignorant of what really transpired in the first century -- and themselves have in like manner thrown away the Key of Knowledge that Jesus taught was crucial to unlocking the true meaning of the written word of the scriptures -- then this would confirm the reality that the Christian world is presently dwelling in a self-imposed Spiritual Diaspora -- worshiping what Paul warned was the god of this world -- dwelling in what can only be called the abyss of spiritual ignorance.   

While the Church remains in denial of the historical facts which demonstrate that the first followers of Jesus were known as Ebionites (the poor one's) -- that not only his brother was the first leader of the Ebionite Jerusalem Congregation -- but that his mother and family were also members of the Ebionite community.    In The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Gibbon notes that the teachings of Jesus was “…embraced by great numbers of the Therapeutae, or Essinians…”, and wrote that: “Le Clerc (Hist. Ecclesiast p. 477, 535) seems to have collected from Eusebius, Jerome, Epiphanius, and other writers, all the principle circumstances that relate to the Nazarenes or Ebionites. The nature of their opinions soon divided them into a stricter and milder sect; and there is some reason to conjecture that the family of Jesus remained members, at least, of the latter and more moderate party”.   Of course today, in view of modern findings, we know that Gibbon was in error -- i.e., the Therapeutae and Essenes did not embrace the new teachings, they were the very environment from which the historical man Jesus emerged.   But more importantly from a modern Christian perspective is the fact that the Church of today has absolutely nothing in common with this foundational spiritual environment -- and neither does the Christian world have anything in common with the people that Jesus originally taught the Gospel message and the Mysteries of the Kingdom.  

How can this be?   You ask?   How can the dogma of the Church be in conflict with the teachings of the original disciples and followers of the historical Jesus?   A. Powell Davies warned the Christian world that discoveries such as the Dead Sea Scrolls had confirmed what they had known all along -- that the Roman Church created the divinity of Yeshua/Jesus -- i.e., “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).  Worse yet, Edmund Wilson, an expert who worked on the Dead Sea Scrolls, further raised the question as to what difference it makes if “Jesus... had been trained in the discipline and imbued with the thought of a certain Jewish sect, and that he had learned from it the role that he afterwards lived...” (The Scrolls From The Dead Sea).  To the uninformed and unknowing believer, it made all the difference in the world!  If Yeshua was an Essene who lived a holy and consecrated life, fulfilling the Law within himself so completely, that he became the Messiah/Christ -- At-One with the indwelling Logos/Son of God at his baptism as stated by all Church Authorities prior to the fourth century Nicene Council held by the Roman Emperor Constantine (see The Ten Words) -- then the Adam Clark Bible Commentary is correct when it states that "...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless"!!!    When Prof. John Allegro was quoted as saying that what has been revealed in the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls is a great amount of overwhelming evidence that “...may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church.   This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers.   The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine” (August 1966 issue of Harpers Magazine); what he was in fact stating is that, everything that we now know about Christian beginnings demonstrate that the Essene/Ebionites were not the heretics, as they were falsely portrayed by the later Gentile church, but were in fact the body of genuine believers that held fast to the authentic teachings of Yeshua/Jesus and the New Covenant.    That the Ebionites who were condemned by the  later Roman Church who created the Jesus-god myth, were correct -- and that the Gentiles were too heathen to comprehend the teachings of Yeshua/Jesus and TheWay.   Thus, the Encyclopedia Britannica writes: "Most of the features of Ebionite doctrine were anticipated in the teachings of the earlier Qumran sect, as revealed in the Dead Sea Scrolls. They believed in one God and taught that Jesus was the Messiah and was the true 'prophet' mentioned in Deuteronomy 18:15. They rejected the Virgin Birth of Jesus, instead holding that he was the natural son of Joseph and Mary. The Ebionites believed Jesus became the Messiah because he obeyed the Jewish Law. They themselves faithfully followed the Law, although they removed what they regarded as interpolations in order to uphold their teachings, which included vegetarianism, holy poverty, ritual ablutions, and the rejection of animal sacrifices. The Ebionites also held Jerusalem in great veneration."

Did the mother of Jesus who was herself a member of the Ebionites, not know of the virgin birth?   Or, does the allegory of the Virgin Birth present an important teaching that the Church is totally ignorant of today?   While it is easily proven that the original Gospels did not contain the virgin birth narrative which was added at a later time to those copies of the Gospels used by the Greeks, it is important to understand the true meaning of the virgin birth -- an important spiritual meaning that the modern Christian world is totally unaware of today.   But to even acknowledge this fact, has the effect of opening the great Pandora's Box of infinite dogmatic error that confuses and divides the religious world today.    Why?   When Jesus condemned and rejected the Pharisees as heretics, it was because they were counterfeit shepherds who had -- in their carnal interpretations of the scriptures which Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" -- they had thrown away what Jesus called The Key of Knowledge which must be turned within one's self.   And yet, the modern Christian is absolutely clueless as to what the Key of Knowledge is, and hasn't the slightest idea how to properly apply it.    If you ask the modern faith-based Christian how Jesus taught to apply the Key of Knowledge to gain immediate access to the Kingdom -- and even to come into the direct presence of what Jesus portrayed as the One Teacher -- a Teacher which his disciples called The True Prophet -- the modern faith-based believer will look at you with clueless abandon in their eyes.   Why?   Because this most important core teaching of the Original Gospel that was understood by the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples, was thrown away by the later Church which called themselves Orthodox -- a Church that Paul warned would worship the AntiChrist in place of God -- a Church which cast mankind into the Dark Ages from which they have yet to emerge.  

The fact that the scriptures which the present-day Church champions, was written by Ebionite Nazirene Mystics and Spiritual Visionaries who viewed the sacred writings from an entirely different perspective than the modern believers -- and the path of TheWay which Jesus taught was the only means to enter the Kingdom -- the cruel facts in the believer's confrontation with An Inconvenient Truth and Spiritual Reality, is that the modern Christian is merely a latter-day Pharisee who has installed the dogma and traditions of men above the Truth and the quest to seek the Kingdom of God.    And while the above can easily be factually proven, the Christian world chooses to remain faithful to the doctrines of Roman emperors and their appointed carnal priests, while rejecting the Truth of the Original Gospel.  If it is true that Jesus condemned the Pharisees as counterfeit leaders because, having thrown away the Key of Knowledge, they were rendered blind shepherds who guided the people in the wrong direction -- then the same is true of the Church today.  

What Christians today fail to realize is the fact that the original Ebionite/Nazirene followers and disciples of Jesus believed very differently than people today -- so different, that it can be said that modern Christians follow a totally different religion than that which was taught by Jesus.   In fact, the beliefs of the original followers of Jesus were so different than either Judaism or that of the later Church, that it was said of them that they were “…rejected from one religion as apostates, and from the other as heretics” (Gibbon: Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, v.1, p.416).  

@@@Why were the original disciples and teachings rejected by the later Roman Church?  While no one throughout Christian history has ever questioned the resurrection and the Sonship of Jesus, what has been questioned is when the man Jesus became the Messiah/Christ -- or Anointed One of God -- as well as what it means to be the Anointed of God.  And while the Christian world fervently studies their Bibles, there exists ten words that so totally alters our perception and understanding of the life of Jesus and the core principles and objectives of the Gospel, that every modern-day doctrine of the church would have to be radically revised in light of these ten words.   To the degree that the restoral of these ten words would bring about a rebirth of the Gospel message in a way that would totally eliminate all the doctrinal confusion and factions that divide the Christian world today.   Further, once these ten words are acknowledged, the original Ebionite/Nazirene followers of Jesus are no longer viewed as heretics -- but rather, the true and faithful disciples of TheWay!

In the same way that the fourth century Church persecuted and murdered the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus because of these ten words which were the original words spoken by God to mankind at Jesus' baptism in the Jordan -- it remains true that when these original ten words are restored to their rightful place in the Gospel message, that the whole focus of the Gospel message becomes radically changed.   @@@ that totally change every aspect of one's mindset and lifestyle, these same ten words inhibit the Christian world from making any real spiritual gains, and they cause the Church to become spiritually flat-lined.   To the degree that one Christian Bible Commentary states that if these Ten Words are True, then the present day doctrines of the Church are “vain and baseless”.

While modern Christians who believe in the doctrine of the Trinity believe that Jesus was God, this doctrine would have to be immediately rejected when the correct ten words are restored to their rightful place in the scriptures.   With regard to when these words were spoken, Christian history also tells us that these words were in fact said to Jesus: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee".  The problem is that, with the exception of a footnote at the baptism of Jesus in the Revised Standard Version, these words are no longer contained in our Bibles today. What the footnote states is that many of the more ancient manuscripts read: "Today I have begotten thee", instead of "In thee I am well pleased" at Luke 3:22.   Yet, this footnote in no measure portrays all the other citations which confirm that Jesus was a man who fulfilled the Law within himself, and became the Messiah/Christ, at his baptism -- and he did this by overcoming and fulfilling the Law.   Which means that the primary goal of True Christians is to Imitate Christ -- i.e., “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).   Therefore, unless you bring about those conditions where you lose your worldly life on the Cross, then you cannot be a believer or follower of Messiah/Christ.

If God intended Jesus to be a one time perpetual sacrifice for the sins of man, then it never would have been stated that "...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).   What this means is that the religion of Jesus in its original form was one of spiritual transformation -- and those who willfully sin, crucify the Son of God afresh, and "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."  This is why Paul stated with respect to continue to living a sinful life: “But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor” (Gal 2:17-18 KJV).    Which confirms the alternate ending of the Gospel of Mark which reads:  "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 - Also quoted by St. Jerome as being the authentic ending of the Gospel of Mark).

In a surviving excerpt of what has been historically known as the Gospel According to the Hebrews, which was reported to be the "original version of Matthew" that was composed in the Hebrew Characters, it was written: "If ye be in my bosom and do not the will of my Father which is in heaven, out of my bosom will I cast you away".  In the late nineteenth century a library of scriptures was uncovered which is today known as the Oxyrhynchus Papyri -- wherein this verse is found reading: "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’".   What these verses mean is that if you continue to sin after coming to Messiah/Christ, that you are an apostate to the teachings of TheWay, and "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."

Paul's doctrine of faith vs the outward rituals of the Mosaic Law, is based upon the reality that if the disciple truly follows in TheWay -- doing as Jesus states and picking up their own cross in Imitation of Messiah/Christ -- that the Kingdom that Jesus taught was within each person (see http://GateOfEden.com ), will manifest within the body-mind of the disciple -- i.e., The Second Coming.   When the Key of Knowledge is applied to the scriptures -- and they are turned within -- then the disciple becomes transformed into what is called The Final Temple (see http://TheThreeLies.com#temple ).   Thus, this brings about the promised End Times or Second Coming within the mind and body of the faithful disciple of TheWay.   That the Kingdom came within the body and mind of the disciples, is why Jesus stated “Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all things take place” (Luke 21:32 NAS).   Which confirms the words: “There are some standing here, who shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom” (Mt 16:28).

These, and other such spiritual concepts of a Kingdom that comes within the lives of those who pick up their own cross and travail in TheWay, were totally unacceptable to the heathen Church of Rome, and the scriptures were corrupted in order to make them support the doctrines of the emperor.  That the Church has abandoned the original teachings of Jesus, and have ignored the facts when it is demonstrated that the Church of Rome 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.

 

  An Inconvenient Enigma: I will demonstrate that the most esteemed of the earliest Church Authorities portrayed those who cling to the letter of the written word of the scriptures to be so gullible, that they would believe virtually anything.   In recognition of this fact, enlightened visionaries concealed essential Truth beyond their perception, within the very text of the scriptures which the gullible championed throughout the world.   And while the modern-day intellectuals -- many of whom have an Atheist agenda -- disparage believers who base their thinking upon the scriptures as blind fools, the very fact that the intellectuals fail to understand the true meaning of the scriptural allegorical texts, not only brings about their own demise, but inhibits them from making any real intellectual progress beyond man's carnal organic limited reasoning.   The fact is that the most intelligent and enlightened minds of mankind's past have long recognized that man's own higher reality is simply beyond organic man's ability to even imagine in his very limited and carnal state of mind -- and thus, the CODE for understanding the very Essence and DNA Framework of Creation had to by necessity, be concealed within the allegorical texts of man's holy writings, so this sacred knowledge would not be destroyed and lost for those who possessed the intellect and awareness to utilized it to bring about the necessary expansion of mind that would permit the seeker to possess the Higher Knowledge that frees mankind from the profound ignorance imposed upon him by the carnal organic limitations of the body-vessel.    And in truth, two wrongs don't make a right -- and the modern intellectuals who merely dwell under the cloud of a different flavor of ignorance, do not at all possess this CODE that unlocks the secrets of Life and Creation.   And what we have is a prime example of the pot calling the kettle black!   That modern intellectuals are themselves too limited in their perception and understanding, that they resort to condemning what they lack the intelligence to understand, renders them pseudo-intellectual.    What is the true message of the scriptures?   In borrowing the words of G.R.S. Mead, the true and only message of the scriptures is an allegorical portrayal of "...the forces which operate in the structuring and evolution of the human personality” -- and those who fail to understand the Laws and the forces which operate in the structuring and movement of the mind of man, dwell in what Jesus portrayed as intellectual and spiritual poverty: "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 while the modern pseudo-intellectual world promotes a great wealth of mind-fodder, modern man dwells in the abyss of intellectual darkness, because those who lack the essential knowledge that initiates true growth of man's mind and intellect, do not at all possess the essential foundational knowledge necessary to bring about the evolution of man's mind beyond the most primitive of man's true unrealized potential.   All ignorance, all violence, all of man's suffering and conflict in the world, is due to organic man's lack of the necessary resources and dimensions of mind which enable him to understand his own higher reality which eclipses that of natural earth-consciousness.   And because these pseudo-intellectuals who the governments and religions of this world portray as authorities, all fail to possess the capacity to comprehend the very inherent reason that mankind is naturally limited by his carnal understanding, all of mankind has been victimized by needless suffering and exploitation.     The fact that the scriptures are an allegory, is imperative to understand, because all the images which we see and observe in the outer world are equally an allegory -- and unless you recognize and comprehend the meaning of the mental-imagery that is presented to your organic senses from the perspective of an expanded and enlightened understanding, then truly your own fate is sealed in the warning: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death".    @@@@

  An Inconvenient Reality: Unbeknown to the vast majority of people today, quantum physicists have already proven the junk-science that is being taught to the minds of our impressionable young  children in our educational systems to be a bogus fraud.    Yet, for largely political and cultural reasons, our educational institutions continue to teach what has already been demonstrated to be a fraud, in order to promote left-leaning culture and program the minds and thinking of the people.   These same quantum physicists who have been for the most part ignored, have already verified the vision of the Mystic who has long warned that what man thinks he sees, is an illusion -- or more factually, an allegorical allusion of aspects of thought and higher mind impressed into the forms of nature.     And while the Key to breaking down and piercing through the barrier of the allusions of this world lies preserved in the CODE concealed within the allegory of the scriptures which the pseudo-intellectuals condemn as myth and folklore, the very pseudo-intellectuals that dwell in the poverty of their own self-ignorance, and are in dire need of the knowledge of this hidden CODE which they are ignorant of even the existence of, would rather continue to dwell in the abyss of dark ignorance, than to break the shackles that enslave them -- even when modern quantum physics demonstrates their grave error.   

While man has the potential to become enlightened and know all Truths of all Realities, Absolute Knowledge belongs only to those who ardently seek it over the doctrines of men -- and make within themselves a fit environment for this Absolute Knowledge to spawn, evolve and flourish.    A partisan, parochial or predisposed mind that engages in a biased search, is guaranteed to produce inferior and severely compromised results.    With respect to the words: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" -- it is imperative to first find out why this warning was sounded, than to ignore its ramifications, and seek without first understanding the obstacles that inhibit your progress.    Because man in his organic state of mind cannot even begin to fathom the Thoughts of God, and the design and purpose of the Laws which are imbued with the Power to bring the fruit of these Thoughts about: “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).   As the prodigal sons and daughters who are presently dwelling in what Jesus portrayed as the Far Country -- inhibited by a condition and state of mind which was portrayed as the "outer darkness" -- until each man and woman fulfills the Destiny that the Laws of the earth are imbued with the Power to bring about and manifest within the life of each individual, it will remain impossible for them to understand the very purpose of even the life they are presently living.

Contrary to what you have been led to believe by counterfeit shepherds and leaders who themselves dwell in the "outer darkness" of mind and being, as the prodigal sons and daughters of the Most High, it is your Ultimate Destiny to know the answers to all the mysteries and truths of life that man is virtually ignorant of today -- and it is very much a self-imposed ignorance that alienates mankind from the knowledge of his true self and being.   In the parable of the prodigal son, it portrays mankind as being robbed of his inheritance by what the Apostle Paul portrays as the god of this world that shackles man to a state of profound ignorance.   And if man made even an earnest attempt to learn about the Laws that control all events in this world -- and seek to know self and one's true nature and form -- then man could easily scale the mountains of ignorance that shackles him to lives of suffering and hardships.    And that most of mankind has over the course of his long residence upon the earth refused to even consider the knowledge of the Laws and the higher reality of the soul when it has been presented to him, has inhibited him from receiving his inheritance portrayed as man's birth-right belonging to all the prodigal sons and daughters that frees mankind from the self-imposed hardships that immerses him in lifetimes of unhappiness.

What did Jesus actually teach?   As the prodigal sons and daughters, it is man's birthright to possess the knowledge that moves him in TheWay along the journey to his ultimate destiny.  But to make this journey upon the higher road of life, the mind must be unrestrained in its actions and thoughts -- free from all shackles and bonds of the external world.   Yet, man has not been allowed to express sentiments irresistibly flowing into his mind.   Ignorance, superstition, and bigotry, have wielded a tyrannical sceptre, and sectarianism has usurped the dominion over the human soul!   While it is innately true that mankind has UnAlienable Rights that are an integral part of the very core of his being, by virtue of his divine inheritance -- yet, man has permitted these rights to have been perverted, crushed, and prostrated -- trading away the necessary freedom and liberty that permits him to seek his Higher Destiny, for temporal comfort and convenience.   Once understood, there is no evil in the world other than that which man has brought upon his own self!   Folly has reigned in the place of reason -- imbecility has reigned instead of thought -- vice has reigned instead of virtue -- ignorance has reigned instead of knowledge -- and bigotry has reigned instead of benevolence!  Thus, the highest, holiest and sublimest powers of man have been repressed and distorted by the degrading shackles of superstition, false imagination and political ideology that simply has no place in man's true reality and being.   The office of the mind -- the very power of thought and reason that sets him apart from the beasts of the earth -- is a gift from God that is intended to hold dominion where the above evils have reigned.  But to reign supreme, it must become unchained and free from the prison of sectarian and secular darkness, and ushered into the light of truth and the atmosphere of liberty.  The tall monuments of ignorance which have pervasively existed throughout man's past, must be interrogated by generations yet unborn if man is to escape the shackle which presently enslave him.   And even now, man has not been permitted to enjoy the free and uncontrolled exercise of his powers and intellectual endowments.  He has not had the liberty to express thoughts gushing from the inner core depths of his mind -- but has been compelled to restrain and repress them for want of an atmosphere of light and liberty.  The few who have dared to express themselves freely, have done so at the immediate risk of their own physical destruction.  Truths that are eternal have been conceived of, yet smothered by the hand of a dominant and tyrannical Ignorance.

When the historical man Jesus spoke of the Truth that can set a person free, it was these profound Truths that the modern religious world has thrown away and lost -- truths that our cultural junk-science has refused to even acknowledge -- essential truths that already exist at the very core of every man's being -- that Jesus was making reference to as the objective of walking in TheWay (The Way).   When Jesus stated that his disciples and followers who continued in the teachings of TheWay would know the same profound Truths that he knew -- and be able to do what he did -- possessing the Knowledge that was not bound by the limitations of this world -- and would plainly reveal the Knowledge of self, as well as all the esoteric concealed realities of heaven and earth to the mind of those who travailed in TheWay -- he also warned that those true followers to whom the Truth could be revealed, would be hunted down by the organic people of this world who despised the Light -- i.e., "indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God" (John 16:2 RSV).   The Truth that sets one free is spiritual, and not bounded by the limitations of the earth -- i.e., "Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:31-32 KJV).   The key word here is portrayed as one who "continues" in The Word -- and to continue in the Word, is to cling steadfastly to these teachings, and permit them to purify the body which opens and expands the mind as the disciple seeks the Kingdom.  

At the beginning of our Common Era when these Great Truths were presented to mankind, the majority of the Romans and Greeks were too heathen to understand the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay.   Like the Jews who sacrificed animals in their temple of abomination, the Gentiles worshiped the emperor and the pagan gods as a means to justify their carnal and often evil ways.   They both ignored the teachings of Jesus that only when one's own body has become purified of evil and sin, can one become his follower and disciple.   This purification of the body and mind was not a smoke and mirrors ritual that is often practices in the shadow churches of the AntiChrist today -- but rather, this purification was necessary to assist in the process of the expansion of the mind -- and this process of mental expansion is contingent upon the cessation of all evil towards one's brothers and sisters, as seen in the words that those who are free, are above what man calls sin -- i.e., "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin" (John 8:34 NKJ).   What man calls ignorance, is promoted by the condition of sin and evil.   Thus, the evil in the world is the result of ignorance -- and those who have been enlightened by continuing in TheWay, and possess the knowledge of the soul and the Kingdom, are those who are portrayed in the alternate ending of the Gospel of Mark:  "...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"   And that force which this same Gospel ending states inhibits man from learning and knowing the Truth and the Kingdom, is portrayed in the words: "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" (see Original Gospel Message).   Contrary to Church teachings, Satan is not a being -- but rather, a negative force of mind and spirit that keeps those who are evil to their brothers and sisters, totally earth-bound in their thinking -- a condition that Jesus portrayed as dwelling in The Prison -- a prison that Jesus warned there is no escape, until the last debt is repaid.   And while mankind has inherently possessed the means to escape both The Prison and the ignorance of this world -- he has perpetually rejected the path necessary to acquire the Truth imparted to him many times.   Unbeknown to him, the very Laws that control all events and experiences in this world are designed to bring about and manifest this Truth in the life of each and every man -- but because man also possesses freewill, he has continually thrown the Truth away on every occasion that it was imparted to him from Creator-God.    @@@

 

What is the delineating factor that determines who can know these higher essential truth, and who can't?   The equation is rather simple -- i.e., to know the Truth, one must Live in accord with the Truth -- and the Truth alone!  But more importantly is the fact that the warning has been established throughout every chapter of the scriptures that whoever does not live in accord with the Truth and TheWay, are intellectually incapable of understanding man's own higher soul-reality and the Edenic Kingdom from which he originally emerged.    What is the nature of this Truth that frees man from both his sufferings, as well as the shackles of ignorance?   It is the Truth that Judaism suspects, but does not themselves understand.   The Truth that Christians fear the most, and will do everything in their power to suppress.   The Truth that Islam is blind to, and might even attempt to kill those who would reveal it to the world.    And perhaps, even more important, it is the Truth that Atheists and religious critics are doing everything in their power to keep you from knowing.   Fortunately for you, though, mankind has again arrived at a crossroads -- one that has presented to him the Door of Opportunity that will permit him to learn what has hithertofore remained unknown -- a crossroads that has opened to him the opportunity to be privy to the knowledge that has been suppressed by dark religious sectarian and secular forces for thousands of years.   And these profound Truths can be revealed to the mind of the seeker, by reading the account of a true insider into the spiritual reality that few believers or unbelievers throughout the history of this world have ever come to understand.   For, what is contained herein, is the work revealed by a Jewish mystic who actually lived as an Essene -- the insider teachings of the first leader of the Jerusalem Congregation who was present with the inner core of Jesus' actual disciples -- and was again present at the founding of an Islam that you know absolutely nothing about -- as well as other crucial moments throughout man's historical past.   And what you will find written herein will not only shock the religious person who grasps only the surface manmade doctrines of their respective religious institutions -- but more so the Atheist, the unbelievers, and the pseudo-intellectuals who only see a mere fragment of the true picture of God, the true realities of life, and the true purpose and objectives of religion itself.   What is revealed herein, exists no where else -- and is the most important knowledge that every person must possess, in order to understand the life that they are presently living.    Jesus himself portrayed many of these concepts and teachings as the Sacred Secrets of the Kingdom.    And the only reason these important teachings can be revealed to you today, is because these are the writings of a true spiritual insider -- i.e., one who was present during every crucial moment throughout the religious beginnings of every aspect of man's religious history spanning thousands of years.    Jesus said: "These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me. All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you” (John 14:24-26 NIV).

Thus, when Jesus said to the scribes and the Pharisees: "Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.  You are not yet fifty years old, the Jews said to him, and you have seen Abraham!  I tell you the truth, Jesus answered, before Abraham was born, I am!" (John 8:56-59 NIV).   This too was the Words of God speaking through Jesus -- in the same way that God spoke through the disciples who the later Gentile Church rejected as begin too Jewish to understand the teachings of Jesus -- i.e., "...But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you”.  
     

 

What is contained herein, not only exists no where else, but is truly the most important revelatory wisdom and knowledge that you must yourself possess.

While modern science has already proven the vision of the Mystic who has developed the ability to see and move into the realms that lie beyond the three dimensions of this world and perceive a greater level of the Truth, the political mainstream of science that is comprised of pseudo-intellectuals and Atheists, remain shackled to the folly of absolute ignorance -- i.e., the holy grail of Atheism, better known as Darwinism.   What does Darwinism as embodied in the Theory of Evolution state?   That this world is the result of natural selection -- and that no supernatural force is in any measure responsible for its coming into existence in its present form.    Yet, this fraudulent cultural paradigm has been proven to be nothing more than junk-science -- as seen in the words of Einstein when he experienced shock when he first came into contact with the new reality of atomic physics, and wrote in his autobiography: “All my attempts to adapt the theoretical foundation of physics to this [new type of] knowledge failed completely. It was as if the ground had been pulled out from under one, with no firm foundation to be seen anywhere, upon which one could have built”.   In the words of Einstein: “We may therefore regard matter as being constituted by the regions of space in which the field is extremely intense… There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality” (quoted in M. Capek, The Philosophical Impact of Contemporary Physics).   From the perspective of Darwinism, what Einstein describes as the Field, is very much the supernatural forces that physicists now know brought what we perceive as matter into being.   And thus, the haunting words that reality can only be found in the (supernatural) Field -- i.e., "…There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality”.

An Inconvenient Confrontation With Reality: In the same way that reality is in the Field that our physical senses cannot readily perceive, the question must be asked: Does man need modern technology to access the Field?   Or, does the ability to access the Field already exist as an innate and latent power of the mind that lies dormant and undeveloped in the vast majority of people who never look beyond this world of matter and physical appearances that the mystic has long warned is an illusion?   The first reality that must be considered in answering this question is this: That the multitude of people fail to make the effort to develop an ability that is latent in the potential of mankind, does not in any measure render that latent ability null and void.   And in the same way, the fact that someone who has endeavored to develop that latent ability can perceive and accomplish what those who have ignored its development cannot, does not in any manner negate the exclusive knowledge that they are privy to, or their experiences that are beyond those of the people who remain undeveloped in that latent area.   Further, and perhaps even more important in the life of modern man is the question: Does man need our present-day extensive modern educational systems which are teaching impressionable young minds a world view built upon what has already been proven to be the folly of Darwinism -- which by its own admission, remains totally ignorant of the higher reality of what quantum physicists portray as the Field -- a Field that Einstein warned is the very source and reality of all things seen and unseen -- i.e., "...for the field is the only reality”?   More appropriately, when it is recognized that our modern educational systems must be seen as an obstacle to the acquisition of the Truth derived by gaining access to the Source which is in the Field -- and this factual reality is neither acknowledged, or even explored, in the modern world by those who call themselves teachers -- then it must be recognized that the progress of our children is being severely limited by the political agenda of the government run educational systems.     Thus, both our modern culture, as well as our educational systems, must be seen as a hindrance in the development of this latent ability of man that enables him to access the Field, which is now acknowledged as the Source of all we see in this world. @@@

If what the modern physicist portrays as the Field is in fact inner dimensions of mind and being -- and what the mystic visionary states is true, and these inner dimensions can be accessed and even explored when this latent ability is consciously  developed -- then it can be said that our modern technology would be more of a hindrance by way of a distraction.   If it is true that the Field is representative of inner dimensions of mind and being that lies beyond the natural barriers of this physical world, then the mystics of the past who professed to have explored these dimensions and realms beyond the physical, are in fact man's true and foremost scientists who have themselves walked the path in the acquisition of a Higher Knowledge that reveals all Truths to the mind of the sincere seeker.   And thus, the Truth that Jesus professed which would set the disciple free by developing the means to overcome their human organic limitations, and move beyond the barriers of this physical world and their own body-vessel, should not only be taught to all children who by virtue of their inherent God-Given UnAlienable Rights, each possesses a natural claim to this important knowledge of self and their true higher reality.   And if an aspect of this inherent God-Given Rights is in fact the Knowledge of the inner reality of the Field that is their own True Source of Being -- i.e., "…There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality” -- then it must be understood that both our modern educational systems which deprive the students of this essential knowledge, as well as our modern technology which distract the seeker and hypnotically keeps their attention fixated on the images in the outer world -- then it must be recognized that the technology and culture of our modern world has placed modern man at an even greater disadvantage than the people who lived in the past.    Which means that a wise man in our own time would recognize the fact that the mystic visionaries who preceded us -- wise men who were not encumbered by an educational system that is built upon a gravely flawed foundation -- that these wise men of the past possessed a knowledge that modern science is only now beginning to discover the source and reality of, understood essential truths by developing man's latent ability to enter and explore the higher reality of the Field.   And while the ability to access this inner Source of Knowledge lies dormant within all of mankind who are portrayed as the lost prodigal sons and daughters, the multitudes of people are deprived of their birth-right, because they remain distracted and entranced by the illusions of this outer world.   And that those who followed the teachings of the Jesus' in TheWay, became recipients of a Truth and a Knowledge that can only be blindly speculated about by modern man.   Therefore, it is not that anything is being intentionally concealed from the eyes of the multitude of people and their leaders -- but rather, that they are not willing to develop these latent abilities in mankind that would provide them access to this higher source of knowledge.    And in running to other men who are as equally earth-bound in their thinking -- and who themselves have never made the effort to develop the ability to access this inner dimension of mind and being that the modern physicist now understands to be the Source of all that we observe with our physical senses -- then when we attempt to learn and develop our thinking along the lines and framework of those who rely upon the downstream phenomena of this world, while remaining totally ignorant of the source which exists in the Field that remains beyond the limited vision or the undeveloped organic mind of man. 

It must be acknowledged that it is pure intellectual folly when a man attempts to prove a negative in the manner of the modern pseudo-intellectuals.   When I use the term pseudo-intellectual, it is descriptive of one who lacks Wholeness -- and allegedly investigates, bound with the chains of the partisan, with a predetermined linear mindset, that can only perceive a mere fragment of the truth that confronts them.    That one person or group of people who have not themselves experienced what another person or group has, cannot be used as evidence to prove that what the second group experienced is not true.   The fact that one group of people have never walked on the moon, does not prove that no man has walked upon the face of the moon.   The fact that one child can pick up a violin, or sit at a keyboard, and intuitively play -- very quickly developing the ability to surpass those who have spent their lives learning from the worlds greatest teachers -- does not negate the reality that the child protégé who draws upon an inner latent source that is not available to the majority of mankind, does exist.    Mozart was giving public performances of his own compositions at the age of six years.   That other people are born with the means to tap into latent human abilities that others cannot -- or must be developed through arduous effort -- is true of all aspects of mind and human nature.    That a man such as the historical Jesus possessed the ability to tap into an aspect of human potential that is not readily available to others -- and that under his direction his disciples were able to develop these same abilities, confirms that fact that Jesus stated that all those who become his disciples will be able to know and do all that he could.   That modern faith-based believers are spiritually sterile, and cannot do or know the things that Jesus said they should, is because they have failed to bring about the necessary changes within their own mind and being that the Gospel states is necessary to develop these latent abilities that exist within the life of each person.    That people who never met the historical man Jesus portrayed him as a god -- in the same manner that they portrayed their emperors as god -- as well as the sun, the moon, the stars, graven images and the forms of nature -- does not in any manner negate the fact that Jesus himself said he was our brother, and that every man and woman has the potential to do everything that he did.   

The Whole Truth by definition, must be revised by virtue of the findings of modern quantum physics -- and must therefore include the Field that is the Source, as well as the physical expression of the source that is presented to the organic senses of the body in this world -- a world which the mystic has long portrayed as an illusion.   And in the same way that Jesus condemned the religious leaders of his own day for failing to first remove the beam from their own eyes that blinds them, and inhibits them from perceiving and understanding the Whole Truth and Reality -- this same truth equally applies to the pseudo-intellectuals who not only choose to ignore the most important realities of man's search for Truth -- but for largely personal and political gain, attempt to conceal this fact from others who rely upon them to gain a more enlightened perspective.   Thus, while they would like to perceive themselves as intellectuals, their own self-imposed blindness has invoked a state of mental deprivation to the degree that their prevailing ignorance has wrought true devastation and suffering to most of mankind today.

While the article The Three Lies presents the corruptions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam which inhibits the people from fulfilling the primary objectives of the respective founders of these religions, this same article also presents the modern scientific findings that are being ignored by the pseudo-intellectuals who are educating our children today.  The result is that because both church and state has failed to respond to this greater knowledge that has been made available to mankind, the Laws which control every aspect of life in this realm have no other means to bring about the necessary changes which will usher in a more enlightened age, than through turmoil, upheaval and violence.   While man has freewill, the Laws which our Deist forefathers made reference to in their portrayal of the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, must bring about the changes that moves mankind toward his ultimate Destiny.  And when man refuses to respond to the Laws when they peacefully open a door for man to step through, then these same Laws are imbued with the Power to force man to enter through the door of greater opportunity.

As the prodigal sons and daughters of The Most High Creator-God, the only valid form of government in the world today is the Constitutional foundational government of the United States which openly acknowledges that man possesses inherent God-Given Rights that cannot be abridged.   And it is important to further recognize that these inherent Rights of Man include the acquisition of Knowledge which moves him along the journey to his ultimate destiny.   That each person moves at their own pace -- and all people dwell at greatly different and varying levels of the journey -- is the primary reason why our Constitutional framers focused on the absolute need for individual freedoms and liberty -- with the primary obligation of government, to secure and protect those essential freedoms that provides authenticity to the government itself.   That our Constitutional form of government is under attack today, by pseudo-intellectuals who are blind to the Source and Higher Reality in what the modern physicist portrays as the Field, is a serious problem for the American People.   These same pseudo-intellectuals who for the most part have embraced varying forms of quasi-Marxism, remains totally disenfranchised with respect to the knowledge and reality that exists in the Field -- and therefore, does not understand these God-Given inherent Rights.   Yet, their ignorance of these Rights, does not in any manner negate those Rights.

A reality that will be thoroughly explored throughout this article is the fact that from the perspective of the Sermon on the Mount, it is the Laws within all of mankind is immersed that returns to each person the fruit of their own actions towards their brothers and sisters.    In failing to understand that not only does each individual person possess God-Given Rights that cannot be abridged -- and those who deny and restrict these Rights, will find themselves in a position where they will reap what they have themselves sown -- is simply a reality that few people in our present time can come to terms with.    One of the biblical concepts that will be presented at various points in this article, is embodied in the words: "He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” (Rev 13:9-10 NKJ).   And what this means is that whatever your actions are towards your brothers and sisters, will be returned back upon you -- sometimes tenfold.   And often, what man portrays as evil in the world, is merely the reality of the Laws returning to each person the fruit of their own previous actions.    @@@

 

That to tap into that innate element of human nature that begins to open the inner door that provides access to the Essential Truths that lie in the Field, requires that the mind of man must be unrestrained in its action and thoughts with respect to its search for Truth and Higher Knowledge -- free from all shackles and bonds of this external world.  Yet man has not been allowed to express sentiments irresistibly flowing into his mind.   Ignorance, superstition, and bigotry, have wielded a tyrannical sceptre, and sectarianism has usurped the dominion over the human soul!   Man has rights founded in principles of Nature. These rights have been perverted, crushed, and prostrated.  Folly has reigned in the place of reason; imbecility has reigned instead of thought; vice has reigned instead of virtue; ignorance has reigned instead of knowledge, and bigotry has reigned instead of benevolence!  Thus the highest, holiest and sublimest powers of man have been repressed and distorted by the degrading shackles of superstition and false imagination.  The office of the mind is to hold dominion where the above evils have reigned.  It is to become unchained and free from the prison of sectarian darkness, and ushered into the light of truth and the atmosphere of liberty. The tall monuments of ignorance which have existed, may be interrogated by generations yet unborn.  Man has not been permitted to enjoy the free and uncontrolled exercise of his powers and intellectual endowments.  He has not had the liberty to express thoughts gushing from the depths of his mind, but has been compelled to restrain and repress them for want of an atmosphere of light and liberty.  The few who have dared to express themselves freely, have done so at the immediate risk of their physical destruction.  Truths that are eternal have been conceived of, yet smothered by the hand of a dominant and tyrannical Ignorance.
One of man's greatest ignored realities is seen in the words that both Actions, and Inactions, have consequences.   And this is a lesson that all of mankind must come to terms with -- and this is especially true of Christians, who remain in denial of the facts, the consequences, and the results of both their actions, and inactions that has robbed them of all the things they hope for in life.   The Gospels were written by Enlightened Mystics who attempted to free mankind from the shackles of ignorance, and the snares of Mystery Religions such as Judaism which enslaved them in a cocoon of profound ignorance.   But, before we place blame at the doorstep of Judaism, it is important to understand (1) Exactly what a Mystery Religions is?  (2) Why Mystery religions even existed in the first place?   (3) And why Judaism was itself a Mystery Religion that alienated the people who were not initiates from knowing the Truth?   Moreover, perhaps even more important is the fact that the competing Mystery Religion among the non-Jews (Gentiles) was Mithraicism -- and while Judaism (and to some degree Mithraicism) still exist today, these Mystery Religions have struggled to suppress the teachings of Yeshua/Jesus and his Ebionite Nazirene Disciples -- and in suppressing the Truth and TheWay, has done more to enslave mankind than any other force on the face of the earth.   Moreover, while Islam was intended to correct this struggle, it has fallen to its own defeat at the hands of its own community of alleged believers.

While heretofore suppressed knowledge has recently been divinely placed in the hands of key religious leaders over the past one hundred years or so -- important knowledge that these counterfeit religious leaders threw away in order to continue in tradition that enslaves the people in shackles of ignorance -- Truth, that if it had been used properly, could have led to a restoration of  the essential Truths which would have not only ushered in the Great Spiritual Light that is the Source and Essence of all three religions -- but could have alleviated most of the human suffering and conflict that has immersed much of the world at present.   And while many of these same religious leaders will vehemently reject what will be revealed herein as heresy, this condemnation will be the result of their own apostasy to the Truth and TheWay.   Not only has this Truth been confirmed by the most enlightened of mystics, but has been further confirmed by modern cutting edge scientists who have themselves cracked opened the proverbial door to a higher reality that few have ever come to terms with.   But, perhaps even more important, is seen in the fact that, because rational thinkers are now free to express themselves openly with respect to the absurdities of the religious world -- putting the backs of these religious leaders up against the proverbial wall -- what you will find written herein, will be the only means for the religious leaders to move beyond their past error that has brought about their present day demise.      What exactly does this mean?   While the many truths that the early Church Fathers portrayed as the "minor mysteries" that is necessary to understand, prior to the opening of the mind to what the biblical authors portrayed as the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God will be presented in the below, the modern Church leaders will vehemently reject this esoteric knowledge that could only be revealed to sincere Disciples of Jesus and TheWay.  

Part of the problem is seen in the fact that, because of the inherent organic human condition that limits man's perception and comprehension to a very carnal and elementary understanding of even his own higher reality of soul and spirit, it was absolutely necessary for these Enlightened Mystics of the past, to compose their scriptures in the allegorical language of the soul (see Mystery).   Further, it was of the utmost importance to compose their sacred writings in this allegorical language that required the Key of Knowledge to be applied to reveal the true meaning, because all of life as we know it, is also written in this same allegorical soul-language by the Laws of Creator-God.   Why?   Because mankind is the prodigal sons and daughters who are lost in this, the Far Country (see Prodigal Son).    And that Force or Power of Mind which Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country -- which Paul called the god of this world -- which the Spiritual Christians portrayed as a Demiurge -- inhibits the suffering prodigal sons and daughters from both remembering their more distant past as to how they came to be lost in what Jesus portrayed as a type of prison (see Prison) -- i.e., a condition of mind that inhibits one's perception and understanding until certain Laws and Requirements are satisfied.   But the true genus of the system is seen in the fact that the very nature of this language of the soul is impossible for what is allegorically portrayed as the god of this world to corrupt and inhibit the lost prodigal sons from using, to break free of the shackles of ignorance and constrainment of mind and being that presently imprisons them.    What this means is that once you understand the formula for decoding both the scriptures, and the enigma of reality that you see in the outer world, as a prodigal son you will then possess the power to prevail over this inherent human condition that immerses mankind in a sea of confusion and ignorance.    And since the scriptures are themselves a guide book for understanding all of the life you are presently living, you will very quickly begin to recognize the pure genus of the authors of the Bible and other Sacred Writings.    A genus and a higher enlightened reality that even those who actively champion the authority of the scriptures, remain totally unaware of. 

  Offspring Of The Devil: In the same way that the Jews who opposed Jesus were counterfeit shepherds who -- having themselves thrown away the Key of Knowledge, Jesus portrayed as the offspring of the Devil -- i.e., "Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it" (John 8:43-44 NKJ - see Devil) -- very quickly there arose Christians who called themselves Orthodox (meaning true), who having gone in the way of the Sadducees and Pharisees, had thrown away the Key of Knowledge which Jesus had placed in the hands of his most faithful disciples.   These disciples who were themselves Mystic Visionaries who walked with God, were known as Ebionites of the Nazirene Vow of Consecration -- i.e., the "poor one's" -- who were called as such, because they were poor to the thinking and ways of this world which caused the lost prodigal sons to dwell in what Jesus called the "outer darkness" (see Outer Darkness) of mind and being -- i.e., literally blind to the higher reality of their own True Self.    And it was these Ebionite Nazirene Mystics who not only authored the original Gospels, but possessed the Key of Knowledge which opened the eyes and understanding of those who sincerely studied the Gospels and walked in TheWay by imitating the pattern of Jesus in their lives.  

To their own demise, all of modern man ignores the above statement of Jesus.    If it is true that those who read the scriptures daily, and perpetually attempted to observe the tenets thereof in every aspect of their lives, were in fact being misguided by a supernatural power that Jesus portrayed as the author of lies -- i.e., "...You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it" -- then to ignore this warning today is not only a rejection of what Jesus taught, but makes one an apostate to the Kingdom of our Heavenly Father-God.    If what Jesus taught is the Truth -- and the ruler of this world he portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country who enslaved the prodigal sons in suffering and ignorance -- then it is man's failure to recognize the lies of the consciousness that rules this world, that is responsible for the profound cloak of ignorance that mankind has perpetually dwelled under.   Are you saved?   The ruler of this world wants you to think you are.   Are you enlightened?   Do you know the Truth?   Again, the ruler of this world wants you to think you know the Truth.    Moreover, the ruler of this world wants you to commit your children to living lives of profound ignorance, by handing your children over to his servants to teach and mind-program with lies that will bring about their demise.   Will you inherit the salvation of life after death that most religious people imagine they will find?   Without a doubt, the ruler of this world that Jesus portrayed as the author of the lies that men believe, has seduced you into believing that you have inherited the gift of salvation.    Now, the only question is this: Do you want to wait until you physically die, to find out the truth that you are no longer in a position to change?   Or, do you want to come to terms with the Truth, while you still possess the ability to alter your destiny?        

The early Church was very much like a modern version of a Spiritual University Hospital -- providing healing and nourishment for all the needs of the people who exists at greatly varying levels of spiritual maturity -- while raising up healers who were able to alleviate the sufferings of the people.   If Barack Obama portrays himself as the champion of Universal Health Care, then it was the early Church that fulfilled this requirement that Obama envisions.    But, unlike Obama who will fail because he has ignored the very cause of man's suffering, the early Church was a true source of healing, because is dealt with the maladies of the plague of disease that afflicts mankind (see Obama - The Church's New Simon Magus).    And in the same way that what is known as the Law of Octaves causes all of man's well-meaning efforts to reverse course, and turn upon its First Principles, the Church itself fell to the corruption of bureaucratic politics and politicians once it became universal (see The Christian Judas - see also The Death Of The Religion Of Jesus). 

Unlike the traditional Mystery Religions which only served the needs of the elite core, the Church even opened it's doors to the common sinners -- providing universal healing -- and this was itself a source of scorn that was the focus of a writing called The True Word by the second century author Celsus, the Epicurean Philosopher and opponent of Christianity.   The True Word which was widely circulated, became a great embarrassment until the Church Father Origen was officially commissioned to answer the allegations made against the Church (see The Secret Doctrine).    Celsus had accused the Church of being a "secret system" -- teaching the sinners a doctrine of redemption and a physical resurrection, while reserving the true spiritual meaning of these allegorical symbols for the inner core of mature believers.   Origen responded to this allegation with the statement that: “For there are in the divinity of the Word some helps towards the cure of those who are sick”, meaning the sinners.   Origen then clarifies his statement and writes that these sinners are by no means invited to “…participation in mysteries, then, and to fellowship in the wisdom hidden in a mystery, which God ordained before the world to the glory of His saints”.

To demonstrate the biblical foundation of this great truth in Origen's reply to Celsus, we can see the same exact message in the assertion of Paul that there were different doctrines -- i.e., the “milk” for the carnal believer -- the lesser mysteries for the seeker -- and the deeper truths of the spirit for the genuine Christian -- of which Origen wrote: “Now, in answer to such statements, we say that it is not the same thing to invite those who are sick in soul to be cured, and those who are in health to the knowledge and study of divine things. We, however, keeping both these things in view, at first invite all men to be healed, and exhort those who are sinners to come to the consideration of the doctrines which teach men not to sin, and those who are devoid of understanding to those which beget wisdom, and those who are children to rise in their thoughts to manhood, and those who are simply unfortunate to good fortune, or -- which is the more appropriate term to use -- to blessedness. And when those who have been turned towards virtue have made progress, and have shown that they have been purified by the word, and have led as far as they can a better life, then and not before do we invite them to participation in our mysteries. ‘For we speak wisdom among them that are perfect’”.   

Origen then explains that Christianity is really not much different than all the Mystery Religions with the exception that they provide service to the sinners who are incapable of understanding the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God, and writes: “And yet the mystery of the Resurrection, not being understood, is made a subject of ridicule among the unbelievers. In these circumstances, to speak of the Christian doctrine as a secret system is altogether absurd. But that there should be certain doctrines, not made known to the multitude, which are after the exoteric ones having been taught, is not a peculiarity of Christianity alone, but also of philosophic systems, in which certain truths are exoteric and others are esoteric. Some of the heroes of Pythagoras were content with his ipse dixit; while others were taught in secret those doctrines which were not deemed fit to be communicated to the profane and insufficiently prepared ears. Moreover, all the mysteries that are celebrated everywhere throughout Greece and the barbarous countries, although held in secret, have no discredit thrown upon them, so that it is in vain he endeavors to calumniate the secret doctrines of Christianity, seeing that he does not correctly understand its nature”.    In explanation, the doctrine of the physical resurrection of the body, says Origen, is misunderstood by those who are spiritually immature, and writes that it 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?   Why would the Church Father Origen who was known as the prince of Christian learning, only second to the disciples, portray the very doctrine that is preached in our Churches today as something for "...the simpleminded"???  Because the resurrection is a spiritual event that has to do with the perfection of the soul, and is experienced in the rebirth of the disciple.   This was not a matter of belief or doctrine -- but rather, this understanding was based upon the very experiences of the Spiritual Christians who had themselves inherited the promise of the Messiah/Christ!

In his famed work De Principiis, Origin explains who can be a recipient of the Knowledge of the Mysteries of the Kingdom: “Whoever has clean hands, and therefore lifts up holy hands to God… let him come to us… Whoever is pure, not only from all defilement, but from what are regarded as lesser transgressions, let him be boldly initiated into the mysteries of Jesus, which properly are made known only to the holy and the pure… To those who have been purified in heart, he whose soul has for a long time, been conscious of no evil, especially since he yielded himself to the healing of the Word, let such a one hear the doctrines which were spoken in private by Jesus to his genuine disciples”.   This is confirmed in the words of Clement, the 1st century disciple of Peter, who wrote: “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).  

Can these statements be confirmed in the Bible itself?   The answer is yes!  When Jesus was asked by his disciples why he only taught the people in parables -- never speaking openly about the esoteric teachings with respect to the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom -- Jesus replied: “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).   The term "without", indicates those who are of an organic mind, and exist in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being.   The term, In The House -- i.e., "...guard the mysteries for me, and the sons of my house" -- indicates those who have themselves travailed in TheWay, and have entered the Kingdom within (see Gate Of Eden).    In throwing away the Key of Knowledge in the manner of the Pharisees, the modern Christian no longer even has the means to enter In The House -- and like the carnal Jews that Jesus condemned as counterfeit shepherds, they look outwardly for the Kingdom that can only come within themselves.   Moreover, they reject the words of Jesus with respect to there being only One Teacher, and they seek out other men who know not either the Truth, or God, to teach them.   Teach them what?   The traditional manmade doctrines of ignorance that has shackled the Church in a Spiritual Diaspora of their own creation, and has inhibited them from following in the footsteps of Jesus, and learning the Truth via their own spiritual experiences in the Inner Kingdom. 

Everything that the modern scholar and intellectual world imagines that they think they know about Judaism and Christianity -- as well as all religion, Creation and God -- is drawn only from the most ignorant of sources who are rightfully portrayed as "...the simpleminded ...who are led on to live better lives by their belief”.    And in the same way that these immature believers did not at all understand the true spiritual teachings of Christianity, the world today remains totally ignorant of the nature and higher reality of these important teachings.   What I will demonstrate herein, is the fact that it is impossible for man in his organic human condition, to simply read the scriptures and perceive and discern the true spiritual meaning.   And this fact is true with respect to the great multitude of those who call themselves believers, as well as their unbeliever critics.   Further, while it is true that the Gospels are not composed in the extreme Mystery Religion format of the Torah and Old Testament, it is also true that unless the Key of Knowledge is properly applied, and the mind of the reader has undergone the process of required transformation, that the reader will remain blind to the esoteric truths that lie concealed beneath the allegorical text of the written words.  

What the Bible openly states is that the Mysteries of the Kingdom and the esoteric truths of the Gospel do not belong to men of a carnal and profane mindset and lifestyle, and this is seen in the command of the Lord: “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces” (Matt 7:6 NIV).   Until someone seeking knowledge comes to understand why Jesus said the above words, no one, and nothing, can help them to escape the prison of their very own self-imposed ignorance.    And when the Spiritual Christians who were condemned as Gnostic heretics pointed this fact out with respect to their portrayal of the Prison Guard as a Demiurge that rules over their lives, their wisdom was misunderstood and rejected.   Because of their blind ignorance, when Jesus portrayed the multitude of mankind as dwelling in a type of Prison, part of the equation was the Prison Guard that kept them in a mentally shackled state of enslavement to an amnesiac ignorance.    In the same way that it was the actions of the individual that created their prison environment -- and the Prison Guard is then the maintainer of this world that inhibits their escape -- the same is true of the prison that Jesus attempted to warn the people about -- and it is this mental prison that the Spiritual (Gnostic) Christians were making reference to.    And when Jesus said to the Jews: "Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do..." -- it was this prison and prison guard that inhibited them from hearing and understanding, what Jesus was making reference to. 

In the same way that in the first century Jesus portrayed the Pharisees as counterfeit Israel, the fourth century counterpart of the Pharisees who were very much counterfeit Christians who called themselves Orthodox, entered into a covenant with Pagan Rome -- whereby their manmade doctrines of belief was declared to be the only valid teachings.  With the force of the emperor's armies, the Ebionite Mystics and Spiritual Christians who were called Gnostics, were hunted down and murdered (see The Death Of The Religion Of Jesus).   The Gospels were then further corrupted to make them support the manmade doctrines of the Church of Pagan Rome (see Bible Corruption) -- the Key of Knowledge became totally lost -- and the religion of Christianity itself became the predicted apostate Church  of the AntiChrist (see Church Of The AntiChrist).   And with the holocaust of the Ebionites and Spiritual Christians who had remained faithful to the teachings of Jesus and TheWay, the consequences of this great spiritual travesty cast the Church into the abyss of profound spiritual ignorance.   To the degree that all of Christianity is as an unfaithful spouse, who has been cast into a Spiritual Diaspora which they have yet to emerge from to this very day.   And this condition of blind spiritual ignorance which is a consequence of the Churches own actions in the murder of the faithful followers and disciples of Messiah/Christ, and the corruption of the scriptures to make them support the doctrines of Pagan Rome -- and this self-imposed ignorance on the part of the Church, continues right into our present day.    Thus, actions not only have consequences -- but inaction often makes a vile situation even worse.   And while the Church remains in denial, this condition of profound spiritual blindness and prevailing spiritual ignorance will continue to consume them, until which time they repent of their past error, reject the Paganism of Rome, and return to the true spiritual teachings of Jesus and TheWay. 

Christians will of course respond with the question: Why would God permit this to happen to his people?   Why would a loving and compassionate Creator permit mankind to be cast into a Spiritual Diaspora?    And yet, if they open their Bibles to what is portrayed as the plight of the Jews, they will find this very same condition invoked and brought upon those who were portrayed as the Children of Abraham and the people of God.    Paul rightfully rejected the ritual observance of the Jews who sacrificed innocent animals for their sins, because the True Word of God requires a change of heart and mind.   The requirements set forth by Jesus was stated to the man who he had healed -- i.e., "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).   And this is why Paul warned that for those who continue to sin, there is no more sacrifice -- but a judgment, as seen in the words: "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they 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 - see http://TheLie.org ).   

All three synoptic Gospels contain the passage of scripture which states: “And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?” (Mark 10:16 KJV).   The more we consider the reply of Jesus to this question, the more we comprehend that his answer undermines the Church's whole modern-day understanding of the Gospel: “And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments” (Matt 19:17 KJV).   If Jesus was God, as the Churches proclaim, then Jesus would have told the man that he spoke wisely when he was called "...Good Master.     If Jesus was God, he never would have rejected the title -- stating, that only God was good!    Further, if all that was necessary was belief in Jesus, why would he tell the man seeking eternal life to go and "...keep the commandments” ?    If, as modern Church doctrine proclaims, there is no salvation apart from faith and belief in Jesus -- and no works or actions are a part of the equation -- then why wouldn't Jesus simply tell the man to believe?   Yet, instead, he told the man that "...if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments”.

THE CURSE - CHURCH DWELLS UNDER THE CURSE

  Jacob, Brother Of Yeshua/Jesus: What you will read and learn herein, will be very different than anything you have ever been exposed to before.    Why?   Because it is authored by one of those Ebionite Mystics who were condemned by the Church as heretics -- i.e., the soul who lived as Jacob who people call James, the Brother of Yeshua who they call Jesus -- and as that soul, I have re-entered back into the world at this present time to set the record straight, prior to the time of great changes that are on the horizon.   And while many people will ask: How can this be?   In truth, what mankind perceives as time, does not exist as he thinks it does (see Time May Not Exist) -- and since what man calls time is merely a dimension of mind that can be moved in by those who overcome the limits of organic consciousness -- the great spiritual truths that the Church destroyed and threw away, is easily restored by those who are truly sincere disciples of TheWay.    And just as important is the fact and reality that you, the reader, do not have to believe a single thing that I write  -- simply because it is within your own innate ability to prove the Truth within yourself.   For you are very much the prodigal sons and daughters of the Most High -- and your Heavenly Father is awaiting your return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination (see http://GateOfEden.com ).

What are the requirements to know the Truth?   The seeker/disciple must be sincere in their endeavor to live in accord with the mindset and lifestyle that Jesus taught -- seeking the Truth and the Kingdom in word, thought, desire and deed.   While the Shadow Church of the Spiritual Diaspora offers you blind belief in pagan manmade doctrines and the requirement of faith in scriptures that are easily proven to be corrupted, the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay were purely spiritual -- and they empowered the lost prodigal sons and daughters who are portrayed as being dead, to make the journey home to their Father's Kingdom.   And, in opening the inner "narrow gate" within them, to manifest the Kingdom of Heaven in the earth of their body-vessel.    Allegorically, this is portrayed as the Second Coming -- the End Times -- Armageddon -- and is the fulfillment of the Book of the Revelation.   The return of Adam (man) and Eve (woman) to the Garden of Eden by the eating of the fruit of the Tree of Life which makes them Eternal.   But to even make this statement-- i.e., the return of man and woman together as One -- we will run afoul of modern political correctness that has further alienated mankind from walking in TheWay.   And in this respect, once again we can see the cultural lie promoted by the ruler of whis world when we ask the question: Can Adam return without the necessary Oneness with Eve restored -- bringing about the necessary Wholeness?    If Eve was created from the side of Adam, can she simply discard him, and make the return journey alone?   And if woman was indeed formed from the side of man, what then is her source of being?    These are questions that our modern politically correct culture that remains in denial of reality, is not going to like the answer of.    

In the Second Epistle of Clement we find an account of Jesus answering the question as to when the Kingdom will come: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”   These words which were removed from the Gospels because they demonstrated a spiritual kingdom coming within the mind and life of the disciple of TheWay, also present the reality that the Kingdom cannot come until "...the male with the female, neither male nor female” -- which means that the duality of Adam and Eve must itself be overcome -- and only when this duality is overcome, can the fruit of the Tree of Life be eaten.

That the world does not in our present time understand the Journey of the Soul which forces the prodigal sons and daughters to spiritually evolve and overcome the limitations of the organic mind and body, and become freed from the shackles of the consciousness of the earth and god of this world, is clearly presented and restored in the article entitled The Ten Reasons Why Christians Reject The Doctrine Of the Pre-existent Soul.    Again the consequences which have shackled the Christian world to a condition of profound ignorance, is seen in the fact that a Roman Emperor who dictated the acceptable doctrines of belief for the Christian world -- and imposed these doctrines upon all believers with the threat of death -- has no power to change the Truth, or the Higher Reality of the Spirit.    If, therefore, the dictates of Roman Emperors are meaningless, and without the power to change the truth and requirements set forth for man's return to the Kingdom, then so too are the doctrines of the Church which are based on and founded upon these dictates of the Emperors of Rome.   

The original Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus who walked and talked with him daily -- did not at all believe that he was God -- but rather, the first of the prodigal sons to so fulfill the Law within himself, that he became One with the indwelling Logos/Son of God.    They believed that Jesus was exactly what Paul said he was -- i.e., the “firstborn among many brethren” (Rom 8:29 KJV).   And in the same way that Jesus stated that each of the prodigal sons must evolve through the necessary stages of birth to enter into Life in the Kingdom, he also taught his disciples that he was their brother who had himself fulfilled the Law within himself, and brought about the necessary stages of birth.   It can easily be proven that the original scriptures portrayed Jesus as becoming the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism in the Jordan -- wherein, prior to being edited to support the Pagan doctrines of Rome (see http://BibleCorruption.com ), the words spoken to Jesus by the Father was: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee"  (see http://TheTenWords.com ).   And this original statement is further confirmed in both the Book of Acts, as well as the Epistle to the Hebrews -- wherein, with regard to the passage at Hebrews 1:5, The Adam Clark Commentary writes: "This most important use of this saying has passed unnoticed by almost every Christian writer which I have seen; and yet it lies here at the foundation of all the apostle's proofs. If Jesus was not thus the Son of God, the whole Christian system is vain and baseless..."   Stating that if what Paul states is true -- which the scriptures confirm (see http://TheTenWords.com ), then "...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless..."   Why?    Because the teachings of Jesus represented the pattern of healing to bring about Wholeness -- whereas, the Church since the fourth century has used Jesus as a Pagan mojo sacrifice to peddle a license for those of a heathen mind and lifestyle of perversion, to dwell in a state of perpetual sin and spiritual abandonment.   Ignoring the words of Paul that such a mindset and lifestyle is "...apostasy [ to TheWay], since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.."   Warning that those who call themselves Christians and thereafter "...sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins".      

In the same way that Christians ignore this important foundational teaching, they continue to ignore the above warnings that portray those who continue to sin after coming to the knowledge of TheWay, as apostates who not only have no hope of salvation, but whose end is even worse than the unbelievers.   Moreover, the above original biblical baptism verse confirms that the original Ebionite Nazirenes were correct, and faithful to the teachings of Jesus, while the later doctrines of the Church were founded in the Paganism of Rome.   Which is why it was openly stated: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (A. Powell Davies quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).  

While the Christian world has continued to embrace the doctrines of the heathen Roman Emperors, the Church has remained spiritually flat-lined to this very day.    Man does not have the power to dictate to God what is true or false -- and because Creation is founded upon Immutable Laws and Higher Realities that are beyond man's ability to change -- and the fact that the Church and the majority of mankind reject this Higher Truth and the Laws of God -- does not in any manner impact or diminish what God Orchestrated and brought into Being.   And this is one of the Consequences of Actions, Reaction and Inaction, that man must begin to come to terms with, if he is to begin to escape his present self-imposed exile in the abyss of ignorance, and emerge out of the Spiritual Diaspora that presently alienates him from the Truth and the Kingdom which can only be found by walking in TheWay.   

  The Cruel Consequences Of Actions, Reaction and Inaction: The cruel reality and harsh lessons that the Christian world and all of mankind must come to terms with, is the fact that when you begin to build the thought structure of your thinking on the foundation of erroneous assumptions, it is important to recognize the fact that this very same counterfeit foundation makes it impossible to arrive at the doorstep of Truth and Higher Reality.    That which is defiled, impure, corrupted and incomplete, cannot replace what is portrayed as the "good ground" that is necessary in the parable of the Sower and the Seed.   Foundational error cannot give birth to Higher Truth!!!    If the foundation is defective, then everything built upon that foundation is equally unstable.   In the example of the parable, those who heard the Word of God -- and whose mindset was representative of a lifestyle that could not bring forth the necessary spiritual fruit -- all failed to bring about the next stage of birth that provided them entrance to the Inner Kingdom.   So, to even suggest that the modern doctrine of the Church where one's actions have no consequences after calling upon the name of the Lord, is simply one of the many lies of the god of this world, that Jesus warned would cause the believer to stumble and fall.

In order to correct the error of what is built upon a defective foundation, the foundational flaws must first be corrected, if any progress is to be accomplished.   What does this mean to the reader?   If it is true that the scriptures were written by Mystics who composed their sacred writings in the allegorical language of the soul, then those who attempt to interpret these scriptures as if they were historical accounts, will always remain in absolute error with respect to their interpretations.    And in like manner, if, in fact all of Creation is written in this same language that these Mystics used to mirror their sacred writings in order to use them as a guide book that Enlightens the sincere seeker to their own higher soul and spiritual reality -- a higher reality that remains an enigma to the lost prodigal sons and daughters even today -- then all science and philosophy that is built upon a different foundational model, will be equally in error.    

The scriptures were written by Essene and Ebionite Mystics who were highly evolved spiritual men and women who walked with God.   These sacred writings -- some of which are contained in the Bible today -- were written by Mystics, written primarily for seekers of the Mystic Path -- a Path that opens the inner door of the mind that permits the disciple to be "...taught by God" (John 6:45 NIV).   And, unless what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge is applied to the interpretation of the scriptures, it will remain impossible for the reader to perceive and comprehend what is truly written beneath the cloak of allegory.    All three western religions -- i.e., Judaism, Christianity and Islam -- have all equally thrown away the Key of Knowledge, and the blind shepherds of each respective religion, equally guide their followers into the proverbial ditch of profound ignorance of this world.  

Once the objective of the scriptures is understood, and the Key of Knowledge properly applied, the scriptures have no real relevance from an historical perspective -- i.e., but rather, scriptures use what appears to be historical, as a cloak to set before men the minor mysteries of mind and being, and the Laws that control all events in this world -- revealing sacred knowledge that is necessary to know, in order to prevail in this life.    The objective of the scriptures and the knowledge that enables the seeker/disciple to prevail, is to become Whole and escape the conditions of ignorance that equally envelops all of mankind.   Therefore, even when the scriptures appear to be portraying an historical event, what appears historical is merely a means to provide a cloak for the essential esoteric truths that are contained within the body of the text -- and the written word of the text is presented as merely the outer garb that preserves and conceals the sacred knowledge for those who are able to utilize this knowledge in their own life.    In the case of the Gospels, once the inner spiritual meaning is recognized, there is absolutely no difference between the inner spiritual meaning of the Gospels, and the Jewish Torah which is part of the Old Testament.   In fact, the very term Old Testament is a canard -- i.e., a lie -- because the Torah is not only totally relevant today, but when the garb of the allegorical language is lifted, the Old Testament states the same exact truths and teachings as those writings which are called the New Testament.   

The historical man Jesus was himself a Mystic -- a Mystic who so fulfilled the Law within himself, that he overcame all levels of division, and became One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.   Jesus having prevailed, then taught others to follow the mystical path of TheWay.    Having himself prevailed over the Laws -- becoming the “firstborn among many brethren” (Rom 8:29 KJV) -- he then taught and revealed to his brothers the means for them to travail in TheWay, and bring about the subsequent stages of birth necessary for them to be restored as a "little one" in the Kingdom of God.  

Once properly understood from the perspective of the original foundational teachings and concepts, the objective of the teachings of TheWay is embodied in the picture of the seeker at the right who must struggle to overcome this world, in order to gain entrance into the Celestial Kingdom which Jesus taught was within all of mankind (see Gate Of Eden).    That mankind is unaware of both this inner Kingdom, as well as the higher reality of his own immortal soul -- and ultimately the indwelling Logos/Son of God -- is because man dwells in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being that causes man to be blind to his own higher soul reality.   Mankind overcomes the "outer darkness" of what is portrayed as the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son, by travailing in what Jesus called the teachings of TheWay -- travailing through the necessary subsequent stages of birth -- and this spiritual and mystical path enables the disciple of TheWay to fulfill the requirement of Wholeness, which is the requirement that Jesus taught was necessary to enter into the Kingdom.  

@@@@Enlightened disciples who escape the constraints of what Paul portrayed as the god of this world, are able to receive the Divine Manna of the Kingdom -- which is experiential knowledge which, in the Greek language, is known as Gnosis.   By using this esoteric spiritual knowledge, the prodigal sons and daughters become aware that man's physical birth was merely the initial stage of birth -- and that each succeeding level of soul-birth, spiritual-birth, as well as the final journey of the prodigal son's return to the Kingdom, must be accomplished while still alive in the physical body-vessel.  

Posing the question: Why is man subject to these subsequent levels of birth?   Man's full potential is far greater than even his imagination can envision -- and to achieve the fullness of this great potential, each level of being must be manifest though its own process of birth -- incrementally supported by the development of the previous level.   It is impossible to build a great mansion of many levels, without first building the lower levels that are necessary to support the top floor.   A great House that reaches up into the sky above the ground, must be supported by the proper foundation -- as well as subsequent levels of structure.    In the same way that man is barred and inhibited from building the upper levels of a house, until the foundation and lower levels are first constructed and put into place -- lower levels which are necessary to support the upper levels -- and it is impossible to even see the upper levels until the lower levels have been built -- the same reality is true with respect to the requirements of Law that enables man to build his own House of body, mind/soul and spirit.    In the same way that a builder uses a blueprint to envision and lay out the structure that he has yet to build, the spiritual seeker/disciple uses the scriptures as a blueprint and guide to form the structure of his House.   And it is this Living body-temple that must be assembled and built, that is allegorically presented in the scriptures -- i.e., in the words of Paul: "...as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to make the tabernacle. For He said, 'See that you make all things according to the pattern shown you on the mountain'" (Heb 8:5 NKJ).    And in the same way that the Lord revealed to the craftsmen the necessary knowledge to build in accord with the image of the pattern, this important Esoteric Knowledge/Gnosis has been preserved by the Mystic authors to be used in the future by those wise visionaries who are Approved (Anointed) by the Lord. 

Thus, each level of birth requires Wholeness with respect to the subsequent levels of being, in order to evolve to it's own level of fullness and maturity.   And while man can create a blueprint or draw a picture of what he wants his house to look like, it remains impossible to build the house until each supporting level is put into place.    And once properly understood, the scriptures are in fact a blueprint of the levels of body, mind, soul, spirit and being that must be brought to Fullness and Wholeness, in order for man to evolve the House of his Soul to its full potential.    And in the same way that if a person attempts to build a great sky scraper that reaches into the heavens, that there are building codes that must be satisfied in order to preserve the structure from collapse, the Laws of God inhibit man from building upon a flawed and faulty lower-level structure.    While man is free to model and decorate his House in accord with the uniqueness of his soul, if the structure of the house is not built according to code -- i.e., the Spiritual Code of the Laws -- the tests of the forces of The Laws of Nature and Natures God will turn his efforts into rubble.

Is this fair?   Is it fair that a sky scrapper or great house must be built to code so that the upper floors are properly supported by the foundational superstructure?   Is it fair that man institutes government to insure that the individual rights of the people are protected?   Is it fair that a man passes tests and demonstrates his ability to drive a vehicle, before he is permitted to drive that vehicle on the road with other people?   Is if fair that if a man violates the laws which ensure the wellbeing and protection of others, that a force exists which inhibits him from harming others.   If a man invades the home of another -- inflicting harm and distress on other people -- is it unfair that forces and measures be put into place, which inhibit him from continuing to bring harm to the innocent who choose to live in peace?   That man's laws are a shadow of the Higher Laws which regulate all of life in this realm, is the higher reality that all of mankind must come to terms with.   And finally, unlike the institutions of man that are flawed and easily corrupted -- subjugating and often enslaving the very people they are intended to protect -- no one is exempt or above the Higher Laws of God.     

In the same way that, in order to be born into this world, the genetic structure and DNA of the fetus must be able to support the fullness of life in this realm -- and a genetically flawed embryo either miscarries, or is born with a deformity or birth defect -- each level of birth must be supported by Wholeness and Fullness of each previous stage of being.    Mystics and Spiritually Advanced Souls are those who have themselves completed certain necessary levels of their own House -- and to the degree that each has developed, these men and women recognize that while the Laws of Creation are imbued with the objective to bring these subsequent stages of birth about, because man has freewill, he can perpetually delay fulfilling the objective of the Laws, and remain as portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son -- forever a victim of the Consciousness of this realm -- a Consciousness that is often called the god of this world, and is portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son as the Citizen of the Far Country.   The soul who lived as the historical Jesus, was the first to complete all levels of his being -- fulfilling all the Laws that were put into place from the Alpha of Creation -- and because he accomplished this Absolute Fulfillment of the Laws, he became the pattern for all of mankind to follow.    In building in accord with the Divine Pattern, the historical Jesus became the pattern for all of his brothers and sisters to embrace and follow.  

In the recently discovered Dead Sea Scrolls we are presented with the conflict between the Sons of Light, and the sons of darkness -- and what is portrayed is both the inner and outer struggle that has consumed all of mankind since he first stepped foot upon the surface of the earth.   While the Sons of Light are those of the Right Hand who seek the Inner Kingdom and a return to Eden (see http://GateOfEden.com ), the sons of darkness are of the Left Hand, and they ignorantly dwell under the dominion of the god and consciousness of the earth.     And in recognition of this fact, many Mystics have embraced the Monastic mindset of denial -- realizing that man's addictions to his sensual appetites enslave and imprison him in a world of illusion and ignorance.   And while they are not wrong, there is an important higher reality to the equation that they remain totally unaware of.    While it is true that their detachment from the addictions of the lower nature and the things of this world enable them to gaze at the Source of Light that enters their mind and body through the higher spiritual centers of the body, they fail to realize that these same sensual appetites possess the very power to make them Complete -- and become true Beings of Light.    Thus, in failing to recognize that God did not create these addictive appetites to enslave -- but rather, to evolve, empower and set free -- the Mystics of a monastic mindset merely make themselves slaves to an opposite paradoxical reality.   And while what they say with respect to the shackles of man's untamed addictive appetites is true, in their failure to consciously evolve those same appetites, they merely make themselves slaves to an opposite paradoxical reality that is just as addictive and limiting.     

When the allegory of the Gospels are rightly understood, what we have is the conflict between the Sons of Light and Darkness taken to a new level -- and this conflict is the portrayal of the counterfeit Children of Israel as personified in the carnal Jews as represented in the Pharisees and Sadducees, and Spiritual Israel as personified by Yeshua/Jesus and his disciples.   While the Gospel accounts appear to be historical, these accounts never really happened, and they employ the garb of history in the endeavor to preserve and conceal essential esoteric truths that must be known by those Sons of Light attempting to escape the clutches of the organic consciousness of the earth, which the man known as the Apostle Paul portrayed as the god of this world.   A consciousness of the earth which Jesus called the Citizen of the Far Country who enslaves the lost prodigal sons and daughters of the Kingdom.    And if we ask: Why would the authors of the scriptures conceal sacred truths in the garb of quasi-historical accounts -- the most of which never historically happened?   Because, even it it were possible to literally write these sacred truths that are concealed within the allegory of the scriptures, they would neither be understood by organic man -- and as evidenced in man's past, the writings would immediately be destroyed as heresy.  

Jesus warned that his true disciples would be hunted down and murdered, and this has remained historically true during every period since.    In the same way that the Jewish sects of the Pharisees and Sadducees represent an allegorical portrayal of the sons of darkness who reject TheWay of the Light, even in our own time the vast majority of man's religious institutions not only stand in opposition to the Sons of Light, but they continue to persecute the Sons and Daughters of the Kingdom as heretics.     If the Gospels were rewritten today, it is the many sects of Christianity who would rightfully be portrayed as the Pharisees and Sadducees who opposed and even crucify Messiah/Christ.    And in the same way that in the allegory of the Gospels, the carnal Jews induced the secular powers of government in the personification of Rome to murder Messiah/Christ, history constantly repeats itself -- even in our own time as pseudo-religion politically pulls the reigns of government to inhibit and even destroy those seeking to walk in TheWay.      And the counterfeit religious leaders who are the authorities of the churches, the synagogues and the mosques which represent the shadow temples of the god of this world, accomplish this persecution of the Children of Light through a series of lies which they promulgate for the purpose of self-empowerment, political power and personal wealth, and the continuance of the way of spiritual ignorance and darkness.  

If Christians understood the true meaning of their own Gospels, they would be horrified!   In our present day, those who crucify Christ, are the very Churches which proclaim to be the followers of Jesus.   And while they do much good in the world -- and in many ways represent a force of good and a message of salvation -- this good is severely limited by virtue of the manmade doctrines of belief which they cling to.   In the same way that preschool has proven to be beneficial for many young children, if these same children were inhibited from moving beyond that very elementary level of development and knowledge, then what is seen as good would also be a constraining force of evil because of the limitations that it imposes.   While elementary school is necessary in order to lay the proper foundation, those who forcefully constrain the people not to move beyond the elementary level of development, make themselves a force of evil.  

What is truly sad in our own time is the fact that many scientists on the cutting edge of man's search for truth, have proven the validity of the vision of the Mystic -- and therefore have proven the validity of the esoteric truths that have been preserved and concealed within the garb of the allegorical historical accounts in the Gospels and scriptures.   The fact that few people today realize, is that Science Has Proven Religion.   Thus, while for largely political and cultural reasons, our educational systems continue to promote junk science that supports the holy grail of Atheism, an inner core of scientists have proven the Bible and religion to be true -- but not the religion of the shadow churches, synagogues, mosques and temples of this world which stand in opposition to the Kingdom of God.    And while this article will present The Three Lies of Western Religion that shackles seekers to the abyss of spiritual ignorance, it will also present the hoax that is being perpetrated in the name of science, and used in the continued persecution of true seekers and the Children of the Light.    @@@

  Modern Black Plague: In the same way that man in the Middle Ages believed himself enlightened when he killed all the cats as the embodiment of devils -- which brought upon man the harsh and cruel sufferings of the Black Plague -- the Plague was unleashed upon man via the Laws (of God) as a result of man's actions, and a similar Black Plague consumes mankind in the present.   The difference is that while the Black Plague in the Middle Ages was physical, the Black Plague in the present is the embodiment of a disease of the mind that mentally kills and invokes great suffering and conflict upon the people -- shackling them to a profound state of ignorance, while they dwell under the delusion of pseudo-intellectualism.   

In the below article it will not only be proven that the doctrines of belief which are championed by man's shadow churches and religious institutions have nothing in common with the scriptures and the teachings of Jesus and TheWay, but we will utilize the findings of modern quantum physics to demonstrate that the junk-science that is being taught in our schools and universities, is merely a modern version of pseudo-intellectuals killing the demon-cats -- the results of which is immersing the people in the abyss of absolute ignorance, while driving them insane.   "He who does not remember history is condemned to repeat it" (Georges Santayana) -- and while in our present phase the disease may appear different to the unenlightened mind that does not understand the Laws and its phases, the present Black Plague of the mind is not much different than the Black Plague of the past that invoked so great a suffering and death upon mankind.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 
 

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

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

 
 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 
 
 

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

 
 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Celestial Happenings: Important information on the Holy Days  
 

The Scribes of Light site provides those that are sincere in walking in TheWay with a forum for sharing their knowledge and experience with those that desire to understand and make manifest in their own life the lifestyle and mindset necessary to draw closer to the inner Kingdom and come to receive gnosis, divine knowledge, from the True Prophet within.

While liberal and conservative Christians attempt to point out the flaws of their opposites, the fact is that two wrongs don't a right make. Modern factual evidence demonstrates that both sides of the liberal/conservative equation are equally, wrong, and their judgments of the other only alienates each from the Truth.

Under the heading of Gnosticism, the Encyclopedia Britannica states: “Among the majority of the followers of the movement, 'Gnosis' was understood not as meaning 'knowledge' or 'understanding', in our sense of the word, but 'revelation'. These little Gnostic sects and groups all lived in the conviction that they possessed a secret and mysterious knowledge, in no way accessible to those outside, which was not to be proved or propagated, but believed in by the initiated, and anxiously guarded as a secret. This knowledge of theirs was not based on reflection, on scientific inquiry and proof, but on revelation. It was derived directly from the times of primitive Christianity, from the Savior himself and from his disciples and friends, with whom they claimed to be connected by a secret tradition, or else from later prophets, of whom many sects boasted. It was laid down in wonderful mystic writings, which were in the possession of the various circles”.

Regarding the claim of the Gnostic Christians reported in the Britannica that their secret doctrine: “was derived directly from the times of primitive Christianity, from the Savior himself and from his disciples and friends, with whom they claimed to be connected by a secret tradition, or else from later prophets, of whom many sects boasted”, I have already demonstrated this to be true. In the words of Clement of Alexandria: “The Lord… allowed us to communicate to those Divine Mysteries, and of that holy light, to those who are able to receive them. He did not certainly disclose to the many what did not belong to the many; but to the few to whom He knew that they belonged, who were capable of receiving and being molded according to them”.

Regarding these two groups of Christians, Smith and Wace's Dictionary of Christian Biography states: “We have no reason to think that the earliest Gnostics intended to found sects separated from the Church and called after their own names. Their disciples were to be Christians, elevated above the rest as acquainted with deeper mysteries, and called Gnostikoi because possessed of a Gnosis superior to the simple faith of the multitude… They also boasted to be in possession of genuine apostolical traditions, deriving their doctrines, some from St. Paul, others from St. Peter, and others again from Judas, Thomas, Philip, and Matthew. In addition moreover, to [this] secret doctrine which they professed to have received by oral tradition, they appealed also to alleged writings of the apostles themselves or their disciples”.

make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof” (Rom 13:14 KJV).

Tree of Life within

EPISTLE OF MATHETES TO DIOGNETUS

THE IMPORTANCE OF KNOWLEDGE TO TRUE SPIRITUAL LIFE

When you have read and carefully listened to these things, you shall know what God bestows on such as rightly love Him, being made [as ye are] a paradise of delight, presenting in yourselves a tree bearing all kinds of produce and flourishing well, being adorned with various fruits. For in this place the tree of knowledge and the tree of life have been planted; but it is not the tree of knowledge that destroys _ it is disobedience that proves destructive. Nor truly are those words without significance which are written, how God from the beginning planted the tree of life in the midst of paradise, revealing through knowledge the way to life, and when those who were first formed did not use this [knowledge] properly, they were, through the fraud of the Serpent, stripped naked. For neither can life exist without knowledge, nor is knowledge secure without life. Wherefore both were planted close together. The Apostle, perceiving the force [of this conjunction], and blaming that knowledge which, without true doctrine, is admitted to influence life, declares, "Knowledge puffeth up, but love edifieth." For he who thinks he knows anything without true knowledge, and such as is witnessed to by life, knows nothing, but is deceived by the Serpent, as not loving life. But he who combines knowledge with fear, and seeks after life, plants in hope, looking for fruit. Let your heart be your wisdom; and let your life be true knowledge inwardly received. Bearing this tree and displaying its fruit, thou shalt always gather in those things which are desired by God, which the Serpent cannot reach, and to which deception does not approach; nor is Eve then corrupted, but is trusted as a virgin; and salvation is manifested, and the Apostles are filled with understanding, and the Passover of the Lord advances, and the choirs are gathered together, and are arranged in proper order, and the Word rejoices in teaching the saints, _ by whom the Father is glorified: to whom be glory for ever. Amen
