Ebionite Restoration - Christian Renewal
“let no man beguile you in any wise: for (it will not be,) except the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, he that opposeth and exalteth himself against all that is called God or that is worshipped; so that he sitteth in the temple of God, setting himself forth as God” (2 Thes 2:3-4 ASV)
The Prediction That Satan Would Rule The Church: In total disregard of the admonition of the scriptures themselves, the greater majority of Christians believe that the church is beyond the reach of Satan -- that God somehow drew a line that Satan cannot cross over -- and because of this force of Divine protection, Satan has not immersed himself in every aspect of their lives! Yet, to their own detriment, the leaders of the modern church ignore the warning of the Apostle: “let no man beguile you in any wise: for (it will not be,) except the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, he that opposeth and exalteth himself against all that is called God or that is worshipped; so that he sitteth in the temple of God, setting himself forth as God” (2 Thes 2:3-4 ASV).
What the Apostle is herein very clearly predicting is that there would come a time when the god of the Christian Church will be a false god. Historically speaking, it has been almost universally recognized that the period in time that the Apostle could have been referring to was in the fourth century when the church made a covenant with the Roman Emperor Constantine. With regard to this falling away, the Adam Clark Commentary writes of this passage of Paul's Epistle: “[Except there come a falling away first] We have the original word apostasia in our word apostasy; and by this term we understand a dereliction of the essential principles of religious truth, either a total abandonment of Christianity itself, or such a corruption of its doctrines as renders the whole system completely inefficient to salvation. But what this apostasy means is a question which has not yet, and perhaps never will be, answered to general satisfaction” (from the Adam Clarke Commentary).
Not to depreciate or make less the significance of any one of the individual statements presented in the above words, what the modern believer must recognized is the far-reaching totality of the statement: “But what this apostasy means is a question which has not yet, and perhaps never will be, answered to general satisfaction”. Ultimately, what this means to the modern believer is that each and every church authority from the fourth-century to the present, as well as every single preacher of the gospel, speaks from the position of concession -- which concession is that there is a great void in their knowledge of the truth. Thus, one of the core presumptions upon which our present-day doctrine of faith is based, is that these words of the Apostle Paul are not true. One of the major causes of the present state of doctrinal chaos is the failure of modern pastors and church authorities to recognize that the key to their dilemma is found in the prediction of the Apostle that there would come a time of total abandonment of the Gospel with respect to the desolation of all genuine spiritual Christian ideas and concepts.
What this means is that the Apostle predicts that in the near future, the true religion of Jesus would cease to exist in this world. In this respect, the words of the Apostle are quite clear in their assertion -- i.e., from the time period of the first century of our Common Era when it was written by the hand of Paul, it prophetically speaks of a time in the near future when the teachings that Yeshua placed in the hands of mankind would cease to exist -- and it is the correct assertion of many Christians that this in fact took place in the establishment of an institutionalized church under the control of Pagan Rome in the fourth century. What the modern Christian fails to realize is that the total corruption of the doctrine of the church which the Apostle speaks of was in fact brought about by the adoption of the Christ of Constantine, which resulted in the rejection of the Messiah Yeshua of Nazareth. While it is true that believers use the name Jesus, and call themselves his followers, what Christians have lost sight of is that the essence of the religion of the New Covenant is spiritual -- and where the physical body of Messiah/Christ was crucified by the carnal Jews in the first century, the spiritual body of Messiah/Christ was crucified in the fourth century.
"that fatal period when the Emperor Constantine called himself a Christian; From this time onward -
the Christians had no more of the Spirit of Christ than the heathens...."
-John Wesley (Wesley's Works, vol 7, Sermon 89, pp. 26-27)
In further explanation with regard to this crucial prediction of the Apostle, the Adam Clark Commentary then goes on to provide us a vivid description of Constantine and the formation of his new church: “[Who opposeth and exalteth] He stands against and exalts himself above all divine authority, and above every object of adoration, and every institution, relative to divine worship, sebasma, himself being the source, whence must originate all the doctrines of religion, and all its rites and ceremonies; so that sitting in the temple of God -- having the highest place and authority in the Christian church, he acts as God -- taking upon himself God's titles and attributes, and arrogating to himself the authority that belongs to the Most High” (from the Adam Clarke Commentary). That these events came to pass is well documented from a historical perspective -- i.e., the church was ruled by Satanic forces that dictated every aspect of Christian doctrine. And while it is true that many faithful believers, clergy, pastors and religious authorities today have recognized the defilement of the church that took place beginning in the fourth century, what could not be revealed until now was the absolute certainty that, because the Church has never fully recovered from the darkness and corruption that was imposed upon the teachings of the church by the ruthless political despots of the past, essential foundational principles, as well as indispensable elements of New Covenant knowledge of what is constantly referred to in the Bible as the Mysteries of God, is presently absent from the thinking of the body of the faithful believers to this very day.
The Apostle warned: "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places" (Eph 6:12 NKJ). From a biblical perspective, the supernatural being referred to by Paul as Satan, who the Apostle refers to as the god of this realm, easily speaks to Christians and impersonates God, Yeshua, or an angelic being, and thus successfully gains control over the thinking of the religious people of any given generation by speaking to their imagination. What does this mean? He begins the process by inspiring within them a vision of a kingdom that is to come at some later time. Where Yeshua preached that the Kingdom is here -- at hand, and could be entered through a change of mind -- the forces of darkness blinds the hearts and minds of the believer to the Kingdom that is already present and has been set before them. The result is that the Prince of Darkness continues to rule over the hearts and minds of the believers because, in their state of spiritual complacency, they continue to live in accordance with the culture of this world, and never actually take up their crosses and follow in the footsteps of Yeshua. And while they think they are different than the unbeliever, often it is found that they are different only in the words they speak. Thus, while they believe and have faith, their faith is misdirected. In failing to recognize the warning of Paul with respect to the total “…dereliction of the essential principles of religious truth, either a total abandonment of Christianity itself, or such a corruption of its doctrines as renders the whole system completely inefficient to salvation…”, Satan successfully alters the believers perception of the scriptures, and induces them to wait -- rather than begin the journey into the Kingdom where the Son of God awaits them.
The Satanic powers of darkness that are revealed in the scriptures gains the upper hand by moving the hearts and minds of unsuspecting men and women to become attached to this world by whatever means possible. He controls religious people by seducing them into adopting a life of spiritual complacency and impotence -- using religion to effect within the believer a false vision of their own level of spirituality as being exalted and heightened. He often accomplishes this deception by inducing them to judge and compare themselves to non-believers, and those who have already surrendered their soul over to the Prince of Darkness. It was easy for Lot to perceive himself a righteous person in comparison to the inhabitants of Sodom. It is in like manner easy for the average Christian today to view themselves as being a faithful and believing people in relation to the criminal element that is portrayed in our newspapers and media. The flaw in this perception is seen in the fact that the Bible does not require us to be better than the unholy -- but rather, to be Christ-like -- and ultimately as perfect as our Heavenly Father (Matt 5:48). Thus, because we judge ourselves in accordance with the standards of this world, the result is that the religious person sees himself as being in accord with the gospel message, because he can easily perceive a difference between himself and the people he views as being turned out of The Way. From the perspective of what the Apostle calls the god of this world, this false vision of righteousness is absolutely necessary in order to implant within their minds a strong delusion that induces them to believe that they are fulfilling the Word of God.
The Ministers of Satan: A great truth that the Bible continually warns the religious person about -- a truth that he must come to terms with if he is to become a disciple of the Light -- is that this supernatural being which the Apostle calls the god of this world has the power to ordain servants to mislead the flock of believers -- and more importantly, even those servants are unaware that they have become the ministers of Satan. More importantly, the servants of Satan are very often the people who the flock of believers regard as the most well meaning of individuals -- men and women who the believing community perceives as religious allies, and perhaps even saintly.
Throughout the course of human history it can be demonstrated that large numbers of true believers have permitted themselves to be deceived and led into error and captivity, because they failed to heed the lesson of the biblical account of Samson and Delilah -- where the betrayer appears to be good, and yet saps their strength, and then attacks the believers in order to enslave them. If, then, we are to break the bonds of slavery, and succeed in safeguarding ourselves from being deceived, we must become acutely aware of the important biblical warning that: “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Prov 14:12 KJV). From the perspective of the Prince of Darkness, we are more easily conquered and led into a life of servitude by those who appear to us as allies and champions of the faith, than those who would oppose us. No doubt many Christians will immediately reject this argument -- saying, God would not permit this to happen to His church. But this claim is quickly proven counterfeit when it is demonstrated that God has indeed permitted the church to fall into error.
Can the believer trust the affirmation of the leaders of the church with respect to their claim of doctrinal purity and Divine protection? The Bible very clearly states that the opposite is true, and it is the leaders of the church who will be in error when they make this claim. In confirmation of what was predicted by Paul, Yeshua said that the powers of darkness which seek to enslave us, and will accomplish this by fooling the very elect of the church (Mat 24:24; Mk 13:22). The Apostle warns that Satan will appear as an Angel of light, and he will transform his ministers and servants of darkness to make them falsely appear to you as good, in order to deceive you (2 Cor 11:14). In this respect, the Bible warns us that what seems right to the carnal mind of man, is the very thing that will bring about the ways of death (Prov 14:12). This reality is truly manifest among believers who are under the deception that they have fulfilled the requirements of walking in TheWay, by merely saying a prayer to the Jesus-god, and then living their daily lives no different than those who dwell in Sodom and Gormorah.
What Yeshua warned his followers was to: “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits” (Matt 7:15-16 KJV). In understanding the far-reaching reality of these words, we must comprehend exactly what the fruits are that Yeshua makes reference to which we should use to judge the validity of our religious leaders! Fruits in the scriptures relate to works and accomplishments -- and the works of the spirit is seen in the ability of the shepherd of the flock to place within the hands of the believer the Key that opens the door to what the Bible calls the house of knowledge -- and then demonstrate how to use that knowledge to guide the believer into the Kingdom -- a Kingdom that will never come upon the earth as our present-day church authorities proclaim (Luke 17:20-21), but exists at this very time in a parallel inner dimension that the genuine Disciples of Yeshua and TheWay can enter.
Martin Luther was a priest in the Roman Church. It was not his intention to start a new religion! What he wanted to do was make the church more in line with the original biblical message, and rid itself of its Pagan foundation. To what extent did Luther and the Reformationists succeed? This question can only be answered by judging the success of their results as to what degree the Paganism of the Roman Empire still remains grafted into the gospel today -- resulting in the continued corruption of the original message? If Luther and the Reformers had been successful, and the original message of the Gospel had been restored, then the Biblical scholars such as A. Powell Davies, who studied the Dead Sea Scrolls could never have said these words: “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). What is being conveyed in these words is the fact that what we believe today has little in common with what was taught by the Son of God in the first century.
Why did Biblical scholars know all along that the origin of Christianity was not what is commonly taught in the Churches today? Because the modern Church was born in the fourth century when its primary doctrines were ordained as the only acceptable beliefs by the Emperor Constantine (see The Death Of The Religion Of Jesus). And these doctrines of belief that are still ordained by the Church today, have very little in common with what Yeshua actually taught. And 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 and the New Covenant.For the disciple in search of the Truth and Light, the answer to these questions are of the utmost importance. The Lord has commanded us to clean our house of all worldly defilements in the endeavor to embrace the things of the spirit. The Lord did not place the Gospel in our hands, so that we could alter it in the endeavor to make it more compatible with our culture of lifestyle. The New Covenant is just that -- a Covenant and Marriage that must be embraced in sacred observance and fulfilled to its utmost potential. In the same way that in the eyes of God there is no room for another woman in the life of a married man, and the mere act of looking upon another woman with lust is adulterous, if we are faithful to the Lord, then there can be no room in our lives for manmade doctrines, traditions, customs and beliefs.
Why Would God Permit The Gospels To Be Corrupted?
Quoted from Why Would God Permit The Gospels To Be Corrupted http://BrotherOfJesus.org#WhyGodPermittedTheCorruptionOfTheGospels
With respect to the statement of reality as to why God would allow the Gospels to be corrupted? If the Gospels had not been corrupted -- thereby making them relevant and applicable to the lives of a much greater number of people -- then this large body of people would never have been converted to a quasi-form of Christianity that they could relate to and embrace, and make spiritual gains as they began to incorporate the basic Gospel teachings into their life. Which provokes the question: Why was it necessary to convert a large number of people to a corrupted form of the Gospel which they could embrace in their carnal condition of mind? In order for a change in consciousness to come upon the earth while preserving mankind's choice and freewill, it was more important to convert a large number of people to a series of Gospel teachings that they could accept and embrace. Paul did this same thing when he taught the Gentiles what he called the "traditions" of the Gospel (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ), but was unable to reveal to them the spiritual meaning of these traditions because of their mental and spiritual immaturity.
Original Gospels Still Exist: The above could work ONLY because when the immature believers were ready, a time would come when the Original Gospel Teachings could be restored. With the corruption of the Gospels that made them both acceptable and useable to a massively larger number of people, in the fourth century important more pure copies of the scriptures were hidden away and preserved for those who were able to make use of them. It was therefore the foundation of the Gospels that was necessary to -- when the time was right -- be in a position to enable a higher level of spiritual maturity to be brought about in the lives of a great number of people (see Can I Get An Original Pure Copy Of The Scriptures http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#PureCopyOfScriptures ). Further, the same Soul who was not only present in the first century and authored the Original Core Gospels, would be able to incarnate again and restore the Original Gospel Teachings that were suppressed by the fourth century Church as has been accomplished at The Reality Of The Original Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com . Which means that when the time was optimum, the large group of people who had been reared on what Paul portrayed as “milk intended for babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1), could then be mentally and spiritually nourished with the Divine Manna which enables them to travail on path into Life.
Are You Waiting Jesus' Return?
With respect to the promised coming of
the Kingdom, Jesus explained "Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will
not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom." (Matt
16:28). Why? Because the Kingdom can only come within you -- and it is therein
you must seek it by achieving the necessary Wholeness of Mind and Being.
Has Jesus abandoned the true believer? The Indwelling Word/Logos/Son of God provides for each Soul the direction they need as prodigal sons and daughters to return to the Edenic Kingdom. And the Indwelling Word is monitoring your every step, in order to provide exactly what you need to make the Journey Home in TheWay. Why don't you understand this? Because when the Emperor Constantine secularized the Church under pagan Rome -- hunted down the Spiritual Christians as heretics -- he removed a crucial teaching that inhibits a believers progress that is necessary to receive the "solid food" of the Gospel -- 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). These words that Paul wrote were not addressed to unbelievers. They were in fact written to baptized and confirmed Christians who he had taught the meaning of the Gospel message. Yet, he warned them that they had yet not evolved and advanced to the level that enabled them to comprehend, and be taught directly by the Indwelling Word of God. Without understanding the Natural Laws that tests and prepares each Soul for the spiritual nourishment they need in order to grow to maturity, then the prodigal sons and daughters would remain a prisoner of the Citizen of the Far Country which they have attached themselves to (see The Seduction Of The Prodigal Son http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#SeductionOfProdigalSon ). And this has imposed upon each of the prodigal sons/daughters an intellectual red line that inhibits them from being able to receive the "solid food" of the Gospel (see The Intellectual Red Line In The Sand Of Human Consciousness http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#TheIntellectualRedLine ).
When the prodigal son/daughter
abandoned the Edenic Kingdom and journeyed into the Far Country, in order to
develop and evolve, s/he had to possess the necessary freewill that would enable
him/her to live out and experience the choices s/he made. And this requires
him/her to be born into subsequent lives where he inherits the choices he has
made -- i.e., "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked;
for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7). Which was
correctly portrayed by the pre-Nicene 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). What this means is that whatever you, as the divine
offspring of your heavenly Father, needs to spiritually advance and grow, will
be presented to you in the future. And this also means that every person has
arrived at their present station in life, by virtue of evolving through all the
previous lives their Soul has lived -- i.e., in the words of St. Jerome who
wrote: “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.” Why could the Church
only convey this essential teaching to a "small number
of people"? In the words of Paul: "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 the first time in the history of mankind, the key to understanding the Mysteries of God has been openly presented and explained to all the prodigal sons/daughters of the Most High. The Original followers of Jesus who walked and talked with him daily, witnessed to the fact that Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Law -- and this has been explored thoroughly and explained in great depth at http://TheLawOfOctaves.com . When Jesus was asked why he spoke only in parables to the masses of people, he explained: "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). Why could he reveal to the few what the multitude could not comprehend? Because his instructions enabled them to become Whole -- i.e., "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17). And this wholeness of mind which they had themselves achieved, enabled them to receive the "solid food" of the Gospel teachings -- 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). And what did Jesus say to those who desired to come after him? He said: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me" (Luke 9:23 -- SEE The Cross You Must Bear To Your Own Crucifixion http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#TheCross ).
Social Media has begun to censor the links to the above websites. Why? The Citizen of the Far Country rules over both church and state through the culture that inhibits complacent believers from doing as Jesus taught, and picking up their own Cross and travailing in TheWay Home to the Edenic Kingdom. With respect to the Law of God that his original followers said he fulfilled within his own mind and being, Jesus said: "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:17-20). If you believe that Jesus was wrong, and the Law was "nailed to the cross", then there is no way to help you to understand anything beyond the purely superficial. But, if you are a sincere follower of the Gospel teachings, you will understand why those original followers of Jesus who walked and talked with him daily, are the sole witnesses to the fact 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, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34). What they are witnessing to is the reality that Jesus was a true holy man who so fully fulfilled the Law, 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).
It remains impossible for modern believers to fulfill the Law that they have absolutely no understanding of. And with respect to the statement that "...unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven" -- Jesus portrayed the "scribes and Pharisees" as blind guides who led the people in the wrong direction -- which is the reason why Jesus portrayed them as "the devil's spawn" (see Christianity - The Devil's Spawn http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com ). And the fact that other people had themselves fulfilled the Law and became Whole, is confirmed in the statement: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17). Before this verse can be understood, we must first understand what it means to be Whole. Which provokes the question: How is Wholeness achieved? Contrary to the dogma of the modern Church, if Jesus is the savior who every person needs for salvation, then Jesus himself said the Church was wrong, and those who are Whole do not need him. And as a physician, Jesus did not come for the salvation of those who are Whole, but only for those who are sick and in need of a physician. And in total opposition to Church dogma, what this also means is that at the time the historical man Jesus walked the face of the earth, there existed people who he portrayed as "whole [and] righteous" who did not need Jesus the physician. Jesus openly states that his mission as a spiritual physician is not for them, because they achieved the necessary Wholeness without him.
In the same way that the Citizen or god of this world which Jesus portrayed as the Far Country controls you through the culture which has gravely influenced both church and state, the Citizen of the Far Country is using Social Media to keep believers complacent and never understanding the Law as Jesus taught his original followers to fulfill within them (see Spiritual Osmosis And The Narrow Gate http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Osmosis AND Original Sin And Spiritual Osmosis http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#OriginalSin ). By keeping you ignorant of the meaning of The Law, and how you must full the Law to enter in and through the "narrow gate" (see The Narrow Gate And The Enigma Of The Law Of Octaves http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Intro ), the Citizen of the Far Country is able to maintain control over your thinking and life.
When Will the Kingdom Come? With respect to when the Kingdom would come, Peter told the people: ”looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God” (2 Pet 3:12). Which provokes the question: How could the believers in that time-frame of the first-century, hasten or speed up the coming of the Kingdom, if it was coming externally in the outer world? And if Peter was truly telling the people in the first century that they had the ability to hasten and speed up the coming of the Kingdom, then either the disciples were wrong -- they were lying to the people -- or the body of believers outside of the original Ebionite Nazirene Community simply do not understand the core Gospel teachings (see The Restored Gospel Teachings at http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ). That with the proper understanding and application of the Law that Jesus taught each person must fulfill -- i.e., "...For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven" -- through Wholeness the believer is able to "hasten" or speed up the Coming of the Kingdom is proclaimed in The Second Epistle of Clement who was the disciple of the Apostle Peter, when he wrote to a first century congregation: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”. What Clement -- the disciple of Peter who is claimed by the Church as the fourth pope in succession of Peter -- is stating in accord with the Original teachings is that when the seeker/believer brings this condition of Wholeness about within their own Mind and Being by picking up their own Cross and travailing in TheWay (see The Universal Symbol Of The Cross http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#UniversalCross ), that the predicted and expected Kingdom will come within them as promised -- as stated in Jesus' teachings on the Key of Knowledge (see The Fatal Error Of The Church http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#third ).

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).
