Is It God Or A Demon I Hear?

Who Is It That Is Speaking In My Ear?  

Is it the voice of God you hear? 

Is that Jesus, Mary, or one of the Saints?

Is God conveying conflicting messages to different people? 

Or is a wide group of discarnate spirits telling us what we want to hear?

Enslaving us, subjugating us to the god of this world, imprisoning us in darkness 

Jesus warned that even the Elect will be fooled! 

What must we do to safeguard what we hear?



"My People Are Destroyed For Lack Of Knowledge

Because You Have Rejected Knowledge, I Reject You..."

(Hosea 4:6)

Spiritual Knowledge Is The Fruit Of The Tree Of Life

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

There are two ways,

one of life and one of death,

but a great difference between the two ways






In the original writing of the Disciples of Yeshua/Jesus there exists cautions with respect to protecting the believer from being led down the wrong path in life by the voice of demons who impersonate God, Jesus, Mary, an Angel and other Heavenly Beings.  To their own spiritual demise the modern Christian has ignored and even violated these cautions.  In view of this total disregard for these cautions, we must pose the question: When believers hear the voice of the Lord speaking in their ear, is it the Christ, or the Anti-Christ?






The Enslavement Of The Christian World: It was predicted in the Bible that Satan would rule of the Church, and the Anti-Christ would be worshiped in place of the true Messiah/Christ.  This prediction remains true to this very day. 

The Left Hand Of God

Those Who Act As Authorities Of The Left Hand

Why Would God Permit And Even Work Through False Teachers?

The Princes Of The Left And Right Hands Of God

The Double-Edged Sword Of The Law


The Table Of Demons: Christians were warned that those who ate dead flesh, was permitting themselves to be possessed by demons.

The Voices People Hear: Where do these voices come from?  Is it God?  Jesus?  An Angelic Being? Do our thoughts originate with us?  Or does our minds act as receptors for the thoughts of others -- and even discarnate spirits? 












The Enslavement Of The Christian World


It Was Foretold That Satan Would Rule The Church: It has been said that the greatest deception of all time is seen in the success of Satan in his ability to convince man that he does not exist.  If this is so, then Satan's second deception is perhaps even greater than the first -- in that, he has fooled the very elect -- i.e., the very religious authorities of the church who have been warned and taught of his existence.   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.    What the average person of faith fails to realize, is that this presumption which is widely embraced today, is truly dangerous to each and every Christian’s spiritual well-being!

In our quest to restore the pure Word of the Gospel, it is important for us to question just what these words of the Apostle mean to the modern believer?   It means that the church today is doing the best that it possibly can, under the circumstances that it has been forced to function under.   If both historians and biblical experts are unable to tell us with certainty to what degree these words of the Apostle effect our perception of the gospel today, then we cannot be sure of a single thing!   While we have faith that our beliefs are authentic, when it is recognized that our faith requires us to physically die before we can be sure of the validity of anything that we presently believe, we may be playing Russian Roulette with all the cylinders loaded -- and hoping for a misfire.

The Churches Troubling Past: Unlike the believer who merely accepts what he is told, modern religious authorities know that the history of the church is extremely troubling.   Men of wisdom are alarmed that the religion of the common faith that still survives even today, was brought about by the power of the sword -- and this fact is well documented in my article entitled The Death Of The Religion Of Jesus.   Again, contrary to what they tell the uninformed believer, biblical experts know that the condition of the scriptures is extremely disturbing -- as documented in my article on The Orthodox Corruption Of The Scriptures.  Further, they also know that each and every conflicting sect and opinion that calls itself Christian, regardless of whether they agree or disagree with these almost uncountable number of conflicting opinions, bases its theological position on seemingly valid scriptural statements of fact. 

What this ultimately means is that each sect and school of doctrinal opinion has been forced to accept one biblical theory over the ideas of other schools of thought, which are also represented in the Bible as an article of faith that their choice is the correct one -- regardless of the fact that there is often strong biblical reasons for the opposing opinions they reject.   The Evangelical Christians, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Quakers, and the Unitarian Universalists, all embrace conflicting beliefs -- and yet, each is able to use the Bible to affirm their doctrines.   The Jehovah’s Witness, Evangelical Christians, Quakers and Unitarian Universalists each take certain biblical passages and give them more weight and prescience than other biblical passages that conflict with their opinion.

Regardless of what they preach to their parishioners, each one of these sects arrives at their particular conclusion over the rest, because they have faith that they are doing the best they can under the circumstances they are functioning under.   If they were to be truly honest, each one of them could write a really long list of the many important fundamental elements of the gospel that confuses them -- but since they have faith that there is nothing better.  They of course reason that only God knows for sure.  The uncountable number of explanations that have been offered by each sect and authority are equally confusing to them.   From their very limited perception, they have therefore long ago recognized the fact that they are powerless to do anything about the biblical/religious dilemma that confronts them.   What is their alternative?   Give up the gospel?   Because this alternative is unacceptable, and something within them strongly conveys that there is truth in the pages of the scriptures, they have no other choice than to have faith that either what they see in the scriptures is the truth, or they will be saved by virtue of their belief in Jesus as their Savior.

Counterfeit Christianity: 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 Jesus 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 Jesus of Nazareth.   While it is true that we use the name Jesus, and we call ourselves his followers, what we 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.

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 we have 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.

Satan Speaks To The Christian Elect: 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, Jesus, 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 Jesus 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 Jesus.   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 believer’s 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, Jesus 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).  

What Jesus 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 Jesus 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 dimension.  

The Seductive Power of Satan: From a biblical perspective, the Messiah is the one who opens the door to the Kingdom and permits us to enter therein.   Throughout the scriptures the essence of New Covenant thought is that the disciple of Messiah/Christ must pick up their own cross and follow in the Masters footsteps.   Satan is the power that draws the believers consciousness away from the Inner Kingdom and into the outside world.   Satan does not want us to begin the journey into the Kingdom, and can only maintain control over us so long as our mindset remains attached to this realm.   Where the Apostle warns us that Satan will raise up ministers and prophets who appear to be spiritual, but are not, what he is making reference to is clergy and religious authorities who keep us focused on redemptive prayer, ritual, and dead works that are of this world, and do not move us along the journey into the Kingdom.   The primary focus of the prayer the Jesus taught was for the Kingdom to come -- but instead of looking for the Kingdom to come within us, Satan has redirected our perception and we look for the Kingdom to come upon the earth where Jesus taught it will never come so as to be seen by men (Luke 17:20-21).  When Jesus therefore warned us that the pseudo-prophets will appear to us as sheep, and deceive us, he was confirming that Satan will attempt to use our own religious authorities to enslave us.   Satan knows that freedom, and the appearance of choice, defeats more foes than does conflict.   It is therefore important for us to understand that the Prince of Darkness knows more about us than we do.   He understands human nature -- and he knows that we will stand firm against one who appears to be an enemy, and in the manner of Sampson be readily seduced by one who appears to be a friend.    

If a stranger approached a child and put on a mean and evil demeanor, the child would instantly retreat and seek a place of safety.   Thus, the stranger who will successfully abduct and do harm to the child, lures the child away with candy -- the promise of some reward -- or even fear not to obey, which is the most effective means to control an individual.  

Once seduced, the Prince of Darkness maintains control over the people by herding those he has successfully deceived into groups, religious institutions, governments and nations.   He does this to take advantage of another of man's inherent weaknesses, which is the pack syndrome where man finds safety in numbers.   This mindset manifests itself in the concept that, if a group of people all agree, then we convince ourselves that it has to be right.  Or, if a whole group is wrong, we reason that God will somehow overlook the error, because no one else knew the truth.   In the manner of schoolchildren, we believe that God will mark our test of life on a curve -- and so long as we attain a certain grade that is within the upper and lower limits of other people, we will have past the requirements of life.  

So long as we can maintain the belief that no one really knows for sure, or that ultimate truth is beyond man’s ability to realize, then we feel secure in the belief that we will not be held accountable for our indolence with respect to seeking the knowledge of the truth for ourselves.   We take this one step further when our religious institutions ordain ministers, priests and religious authorities whose job it is to know all there is to know about God and the requirements of life.   We place other men in the position of priest and clergy, so as to make them responsible for knowing the Will of God.   We then reason that all we have to do is live in accordance with what these religious authorities say, and we will have passed the test of life.   What we therefore fail to recognize is the fact that this is the same exact flaw that Jesus condemned in the Jewish sects of the Sadducees and Pharisees.

The Jehovah’s Witnesses feel secure in the belief that God talks to the leaders of their sect who publish their pamphlets in Brooklyn.   So long as they are Jehovah’s Witnesses in good standing, they will be saved.   Evangelical Christians believe that by virtue of their accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, and they worship in a Christ-centered Church, they will be saved.   The mainline Protestant sects believe that so long as they have faith in Jesus, they too will be saved.   In each and every case the people feel secure in their association with a particular church or church doctrine of belief.

In biblical times when Jesus exhibited great compassion and understanding for the lost sheep, he did not extend this same compassion to the false religious leaders who he condemned -- religious leaders who performed rituals and dead works -- religious leaders who praised a God that they did not understand because they were impostors, and were unable to manifest the Light before the lost sheep of the Lord.   A genuine religious leader is one who leads the flock into the Kingdom, and brings them into the presence of the indwelling Word.  

While it is true that Jesus condemned the Sadducees and Pharisees as false religious leaders, from an historical perspective the sin of the Jews in no way compared to the eventual sin of the later church that called itself Christian.   If the sin of the Jews was that they killed the Christ at the time of the crucifixion, then what we fail to understand today is that the sin of the Gentile Christians was that they killed and annihilated the very presence of Christ in this world -- thus, plunging both the Jews and the Christians into the depths of spiritual darkness.  

The truth of the matter that is beyond the comprehension of the greater majority of the people who call themselves Christian today, is that when the Lord physically departed from us, and returned to the heavenly realms from which he had emerged, he did not abandon mankind -- i.e., he visited those who were worthy, and he left us a people who continued to live and dwell in the manner that he prescribed.   For three hundred years there existed a society of people who continued to live a spiritual life in the Light and The Way that Jesus taught.   During this time this group of observant Hebrew/Christians helped both Jew and Gentile-Christian alike to understand and embrace man's innate spiritual nature.   Thus, because they maintained the Lord's teachings in the purity of the Word, people from all walks of life were able to embrace the Light and open the door of the great divide that separates this world from the Kingdom of the Father.  

In the fourth century a very carnal sect of people who called themselves Christian, entered into a covenant with the secular political powers of darkness that ruled this world.   The result was that, whoever did not accept and adhere to the religion of the supreme ruler -- which at that time was the emperor -- was immediately deemed heretics, and silenced by the power of the sword.   Thus, to the Christians own demise the warning of the Apostle was ignored where he wrote: “But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now” (Gal 4:29 NKJ).   In a very short amount of time the Christians of the flesh totally annihilated and exterminated the genuine disciples of the Light -- with the result being that the Christian world was cast down into the very pit of darkness from which the Lord had come to lead them out of.  

Once the remnant of Light that the Lord had left to guide the people was extinguished and annihilated by the very power of the church's alliance with Caesar, Satan was free to not only alter the gospel message, but to place his own disciples in the position of church authorities.   Then, in the manner of more modern despots such as Adolph Hitler, the soldiers were sent forth to exterminate all who opposed the religion of the emperor.   It was during this time that man's perception of God, the nature of Jesus, and matters and concepts pertaining to spiritual things, became embodied in creeds and dogma, and was then published by a class of priests who were totally ruled by a carnal mindset.  

Genuine Spiritual Christianity ceased to exist, as the religion of the emperor became an institution of secular law.   We fail to understand these words today because we erroneously view the teachings of the New Covenant as a body of people who believe in the Son of God.   What we fail to comprehend is that true belief means that we open the “narrow gate” and enter the Kingdom, and learn directly from the indwelling Word.   Because Christianity was thrust into a world of ritual, dead works, the worship of the gods in the form of saints, the unrestrained hunger for political and material wealth, the religion of the New Covenant was converted from a spiritual journey that builds a bridge between this realm and the Kingdom, and a typical religion of the Nations where the people worshiped the gods, the emperor, and lived in subjection to the priests who were ordained by the Roman Government.

With the threat of death, no one was permitted to disagree with the creeds of the Church of the Roman Empire.   Moreover, the men who were enacting these creeds -- the priests and bishops who ruled the church, did not become priests and bishops because of their holiness or manifest spirituality -- but rather, by alliance with the Emperor's Church, and often by purchasing these positions with money -- positions that had in every way become secular in nature, and very much a part of the government.   In modern times we call this a political payoff.

As just one example: In the sixth century when Pope Sylverius had been removed from office by Theodora, the Emperor's wife who had previously been a prostitute and circus performer, and who disagreed with the pope on many theological positions -- one of which was the pre-existence of the soul -- Gibbon writes: “At the emperor's command, the clergy of Rome proceeded to the choice of a new bishop; and after a solemn invocation of the Holy Ghost, elected the deacon Vigilius, who had purchased the papal throne by a bribe of two hundred pounds of gold” (Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire).  

Thus, it was these religious politicians who controlled and impacted Christian doctrine -- a doctrine established in the fourth century.   More importantly is the fact that what believers today fail to realize is that it is these same fourth-century doctrines that continue to remain at the very core of accepted beliefs of the modern church, right up to our present time.   And what was the objective of these beliefs?   When these religious politicians submitted their decrees with regard to the nature of God, Jesus, and the Bible, these decrees always supported the religious priorities of the government -- which objective was always mindful of the true secular purpose of religion, which was to assist the government in its rule over and control of the masses of people.   That our whole modern perception of Creation that continues to be a foundational principle of modern church doctrine, has been authored by a circus prostitute who had the pope killed, and then had her own doctrines of belief installed in the creeds of the church, should be sufficient to cause every sincere believer to re-evaluate their understanding of the Gospel.

To what degree the church had fallen under the control of blind carnal men can perhaps best be envisioned in the words of Hilary, Bishop of Poitiers, when he wrote: “It is a thing equally deplorable and dangerous, that there are as many creeds as opinions among men, as many doctrines as inclinations, and as many sources of blasphemy as there are faults among us; because we make creeds arbitrarily, and explain them as arbitrarily.  The Homoousion is rejected, and received, and explained away by successive synods. The partial or total resemblance of the Father and of the Son is a subject of dispute for these unhappy times.  Every year, nay, every moon, we make new creeds to describe invisible mysteries.  We repent of what we have done, we defend those who repent, we anathematize those who we defended.  We condemn either the doctrine of others in ourselves, or our own in that of others; and, reciprocally tearing one another to pieces, we have been the cause of each other's ruin” (Quoted by E.Gibbon; The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire).

Led by religious politicians, the Christian world became immersed in a sea of manmade doctrines -- doctrines that attempted to explain spiritual concepts that was beyond their ability to comprehend.   The result was that for over a thousand years Satan ruled the church that is today known as Christian -- and when the church eventually emerged from the pit of darkness in the Middle-Ages, it had been reduced to a mere shadow of the genuine church that was annihilated by the very Pagan Christians of the fourth century.   The result was that these doctrines that formed the foundation of this very Pagan church were then adopted by the Middle-Age reformers, and have continued as foundational doctrines right up into our present time.   Thus, we can observe the success of Satan and the fulfillment of the prediction of the Apostle Paul.   From the perspective of the god of this world, his mission to overcome the Light has been successful, as he continues to perpetuate the manmade doctrines that cause the lost sheep to be ruled over by the powers of darkness.

It is true that during the time of the Reformation there was a break with the mother church that had become seated in Rome, but because the reformers themselves did not possess the spiritual foundation of the original church of the first century, and they continued to embrace many of the doctrines that had been infused upon the teachings of Jesus by the emperors and religious politicians of the past thousand years, it was beyond their ability to re-establish what the Apostle himself warns they were incapable of understanding -- and ultimately beyond even their comprehension.   Because they lacked the spiritual vision and knowledge of the original followers of Jesus, the many churches that emerged from the Reformation continued to be established upon the very carnal mindset that was instituted by the Pagan Christians of the fourth century.

No doubt the majority of Christians today will reject the idea that the modern church has been turned out of The Way.   As an article of faith they will reason that God would not permit such a thing to happen -- i.e., He would safeguard His Church from being overcome by Satan.  Yet, as demonstrated above, this article of faith is in conflict with the very words of the Apostle at 2 Thes 2:3-4, wherein the Adam Clarke Commentary explained that what Paul is predicting is “…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…”.   If the Apostle predicts the “total abandonment of Christianity”, and a further “corruption of its doctrines as renders the whole system completely inefficient to salvation”, then our present-day assertion that God will safeguard the church is in total conflict to the warning of the Bible itself.

If this is true, then the present-day religious authorities will counter that God would then communicate with His people and correct the error of the past!   The Jehovah’s Witnesses believe this!   The Evangelical Christians believe this!  So do the very liberal mainline churches that promote the feel-good doctrines of faith and belief in an all-inclusive savior!   Yet each one of these major groups view the others as cults that have been greatly deceived in their interpretation of the Bible.

The great truth we fail to realize is that we dwell in the very presence of God, and it is our own blindness that causes us not to see Him.   God calls out to us, and we do not listen.   God continually reaches out to us, and we fail to take His Hand.    Why?   Because we have permitted ourselves to become blinded by the god of this world.   Moreover, if a more pure copy of the scriptures were placed in our hands, we could spit upon them.   Yet, all we have to do is begin to live in accordance with the scriptures we already have, and seek the Lord with a pure and consecrated heart, and we will succeed in opening our eyes and senses to perceive our true reality.

Can we call ourselves the people of God when we live and believe in accordance with the doctrines and customs of carnal men?   Why do we cling to the quasi-religious doctrines of a man who not even the Pagan priests would offer redemption?   Why do we limit our perception of Creation to the doctrines of a circus prostitute?   Who taught us what is true?   Who taught us what is error?   When more pure scriptures are placed in our hands that conflict with our traditional doctrines of belief, do we seek the Lord to enlighten our understanding?   The great truth that modern Christians fail to realize is that God has attempted to communicate with the faithful flock, but few Christians today possess sufficient freedom to break loose from the powers of darkness that rule this world.   Jesus proclaimed that his followers would be alien to the culture of this realm -- in the world and not of it -- and yet, the modern Christian is under the delusion that they can ignore the mandates of the Bible and still be of Christ, while simultaneously a part of today’s culture.

The Left Hand Of God


"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge  ...Therefore, my people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge" (Hosea 4:6; Isa 5:13).    To the detriment and suffering of mankind, these words are even more true today, than when they were written.    What should be realized after reading the foregoing, is that nothing that man sees with his physical senses -- or contemplates with his organic physical mind -- is as it truly is from the higher reality of our soul-self.   And while it is true that organic man is fundamentally and profoundly ignorant of his true nature and form in the higher reality of his soul, ignorance is not bliss -- and the great suffering of mankind is seen in the fact that for the most part, he is a victim of his own ignorance.  

In many respects, what is known as The Two Ways is presented in the Gospels -- i.e., the proverbial conflict between the Sons/Children of the Light, and the sons of darkness who are ruled over by what Paul called the god of this world.   Jesus said that the god of the Jews was 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).    What, then, is the lie?   The god that is portrayed in the allegory of the written word of the scriptures -- the outward ritual observances of the written word -- the whole concept of animal sacrifice that is required in the written word of the scriptures.   And what is truly an abomination is the fact that the Christian world worships the god of the Jews -- i.e., which Jesus portrayed as the Devil.

Spiritual Israel, on the other hand, are those who have fulfilled the Law within themselves, and have undergone the necessary spiritual transformation that has fulfilled the building of the Final Temple within themselves.   The Jew represents one twelfth of the Tree of Life -- which is why they observe the Law in outward ritual and tradition.   Wholeness requires that all twelve spheres of mind be evolved, and manifest in harmony within the mind and being of the individual.  

Paul called the reading of the literal written word of the Old Testament in the manner that Fundamentalists do today, the "letter that killeth" -- meaning that it is the path to spiritual death.   But once understood for what it truly is, so too are those who are of the delusion that the outer world which is portrayed as the illusions of Plato's Cave, is real.   In the writings of his disciple Clement, Peter called the Old Testament written word the "...books with the power to deceive".   Why would Peter portray the scriptures as the  "...books with the power to deceive"?   Not to be able to answer this question, is to be slain by what Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth".    Which is why Jesus portrayed the organic people as the dead -- and validated Ecc 9:5 when it states that "the dead know nothing".

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).   The Church Father Origen proclaimed those who are so gullible to believe the literal written word of the Old Testament idiots!   Peter said what appears to be historical never happened.   Paul called the literal text an allegory.   

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”.  

These great truths are again demonstrated 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”.   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” In view of the fact that Jesus himself taught that the Kingdom of God is within us (Luke 17:20-21), that the scriptures were in fact a blueprint of man’s own mind begins to reveal a reality that few today are even prepared to comprehend -- to their own detriment.  

What Moses Maimonedes is stating, 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).   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).  

  The Authority Of The Left Hand: Speaking of Simon Magus in the Clementine writings, the Apostle Peter is quoted as stating: "He is a power of the left hand of God, and has authority to do harm to those who know not God, so that he has been able to involve you in diseases; but by these very diseases, which have been permitted to come upon you by the good providence of God, you, seeking and finding him who is able to cure, have been compelled to submit to the will of God on the occasion of the cure of the body, and to think of believing, in order that in this way you may have your souls as well as your bodies in a healthy state."

Notice that Simon Magus is portrayed as a leader who has "authority" from the Left Hand of God, to bring about, initiate and invoke harm among the people -- i.e., the lost prodigal sons who dwell under the shackles and control of the Citizen of the Far Country, which Paul called the god of this world.   More importantly is the fact that ultimately, the evil of Simon Magus and the apostates who followed him, as well as those who that Left Hand Power which is allegorically portrayed as Satan, not only has control over the people -- but is portrayed as being ordained by God to bring about good through the growth that results from self-induced tribulation.   And what is this self-induced tribulation?   It is embodied in the Laws that return to each person the fruit of their own past.  

Again, if in the past the people who were German in this life, were tortured and slain by those who were born Jewish in Germany, then we would begin to understand the insight of Rabbi Yosefan said was that the 6 million Jews who were Holocaust victims "were reincarnations of the souls of sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things that should not be done.”   Rabbi Yosefan explained that these souls who had previously lived lives of sin, “…had been reincarnated in order to atone” (see Chickens Come Home To Roost).    As presented at this link: The Rev. Jeremiah Wright openly preaches white hatred -- and yet, if he and his followers previously lived as white slave owners, then in deed they are presently living a life where they condemn their own past actions.   In our present time we can see an attempt by pseudo-intellectuals to institute Marxist socialism in the United States.   Who were they in their past lives?   Will the American people surrender their concept of God-Given Right, for social programs that bureaucratic dispense?    If a person is born a homosexual, is the question ever posed: Why was he born a homosexual?   Under the heading of Failure To Perceive And Understand, I demonstrate that in the future, the Rev. Phelps and his congregation of homosexual haters, represent those who will be born as homosexual activists in the future.   And when they are themselves homosexuals, they will condemn those who reject the homosexual lifestyle.   In the future the radical Muslims will be born Jews -- and as Jews, they will once again confront those who in the past were their opponents.   The modern Atheist was in the past a fire and brimstone preacher.   The man who beats and abuses his wife, is born as a woman with an abusive husband.    The corrupt politician is born a victim of abusive politicians.   And in this reversal of roles -- what one person judges, condemns, exploits, or persecutes, they often become in the future.   And since most people are afraid to act independently -- and will only take action in numbers -- the very same leaders who led them into one brand of error, will again lead them into the opposite error in the future.   

The proverbial Native American prayer is this: "Grant That I May Not Criticize My Neighbor Until I Have walked a Mile in His Moccasins."    When the Laws cause you to inherit what you have in previous lifetimes judged, persecuted, condemned or exploited, you will begin to develop pathways within the matrix of your soul which will connect you to the human condition which you find objectionable.   And this will continue in this manner, until you intuitively know that it is wrong to do unto your brothers and sisters, what you would not want done to yourself.   Thus, what man calls his conscience, is often an intuitive insight drawn through the matrix of his soul that causes him to do what is right.   It is interesting that Oprah Winfrey was a one time member of Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ congregation -- and recognized the folly of the Black Liberation Theology that he preached.   Thus, in listening to her conscience, she was able to free herself from the karmic attachment to the plight of Jeremiah Wright and his congregation in the future.    Where Oprah Winfrey prevailed over the circumstances that the Left Hand of God presented to her, those who remained in the church continued down their broad-way of personal and collective failure.  

In the Book of Job we see that Satan is the force that tests the individual.   And it is through this testing, that the soul of man is eventually perfected.   Without the testing, the soul would never be confronted by the experiences necessary to become Whole and Complete.   Thus, this force of the Laws which test and present us with the necessary opposition to connect within the matrix of our mind that intuitively causes us to know right from wrong, is the Left Hand of God.    And what this means is that what man perceives as evil in his very limited understanding, is ultimately for his own good.  

In the writings of the later Clement, the 2nd century Bishop of Alexandria, a most important explanation is set forth -- the ignorance of which, has immersed the whole of the religious world in the folly of it's own making: “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, 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”.

Within these words are contained a profound truth that all people today must begin to come to terms with if they are to escape the profound ignorance that engulfs modern man.   Regardless of our own choices, exercise of freewill, the Laws and Power of God is so all-encompassing, that even the apostate teachers and prophets still serve the Lord.   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 call themselves believers, prophesy, cast out demons, and perform many great miracles in the name of the Lord, they are neither saved, nor are they affirmed by Jesus -- and this is true of all of man's religions.  This means that from your perspective as a believer, for you to be faithful to the scriptures, you must question everything -- and that includes every word that myself or anyone else writes for you to read.  A true disciple of the Light is one who proves the truth -- not one who believes something because it sounds good to his untransformed organic carnal mind.

   Why Would God Work Through False Teachers? When asked why God permits Christians to be led by False Teachers -- why the Church was permitted to corrupt the scriptures (see ) -- and why the Christian Congregation of believers are limited in their spiritual development and understanding -- it is important to understand the plight of the lost prodigal son and the quagmire of the Divine Pattern of Creation with respect to the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality.   From the perspective of the parable that Jesus taught, the lost prodigal son is held in a condition of servitude to the (Citizen) god of this world, until which time he is able to free himself, and begin to journey in TheWay. And thus, the dilemma that equally confronts all of mankind in his struggles in this world which he must eventually prevail over, in order to escape what is often portrayed as the illusions of Plato's Cave.  

The problem confronting mankind in his search for answers is seen in the fact that the physical body in which we presently dwell, only supports the development of mind to a level that corresponds to the needs of the body. Therefore, it is truly difficult for organic man to understand his own higher spiritual reality, because in his present infantile form, it is virtually impossible for him to even envision his own higher true soul-reality (see ). The question is, then, in order to develop the mind beyond organic limitations, the person not only needs to consciously embrace a higher reality that is beyond the needs and requirements of the physical -- but this development must be brought about in such a way that it uses the Laws of Nature and Creation as a catalyst, to bring about the condition of expanded consciousness (see The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind). Why? Because it is necessary to work with the inherent design of the body and mind, in order to advance beyond organic levels which serves only the needs of the body.   In the original teachings of the Gospel as presented by Paul, believers were commanded to overcome and prevail over the inherent conditions of the physical body -- i.e., "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV).   Why?     In order to advance yourself beyond a certain level of development which can be portrayed as natural organic consciousness, you must understand the Laws and Controlling Factors of this world, in order to bring about any reasonable advancement within yourself. In the same way that the Laws inhibit you from driving a car over the Grand Canyon, building a campfire with wet wood, sustaining life while depriving the body of food and water, or holding your breath beyond a very limited point, in order to advance you must learn to use the Laws and Forces of the physical and mental, in order to move beyond natural organic limitations.

In the parable of the prodigal son, the god of this world holds the lost son in a state of slavery and servitude, by imposing organic limitations upon his being. True Spiritual Religion is therefore not belief and faith in the unknown -- but rather, the systematic use of the Laws and Forces of Mind and Being in the endeavor to prevail, and move beyond these organic limitations which can be portrayed as natural awareness and carnal consciousness. That man possesses this innate latent potential that he for the most part remains ignorant of, is largely because of his lack of esoteric knowledge -- which from a biblical perspective, causes him to perpetually Wander In Error.

While there is no gender or other divisions in the higher reality of the soul -- no male or female souls -- in this world EVERYTHING that exists, exists in a divided reality -- and the rungs of the proverbial Jacob's Ladder that elevate you into a higher reality, is NEVER built upon one side or the equation or the other -- but rather, the infusion of both into a higher reality that can only be envisioned and brought about through WHOLENESS. And herein lies the problem -- i.e., while this is admittedly difficult for the vast majority of mankind, the task is easily accomplished when leaders arise who have accomplished the fulfilling of the Laws within themselves -- giving meaning to the reality of Jesus' words that religious leaders should first remove the beam from their own eyes, before attempting to remove the splinters from the eyes of their brothers and sisters.

Paradoxically, in the same way that we can say that faith apart from actions is dead -- that the flesh without the spirit is dead -- that the male without the female is impotent and dead -- that conservatism without liberalism, or liberalism without conservatism, always brings about tyranny and insanity -- that the linear without the intuitive, and the intuitive without the linear, is always a dilemma of distortion -- that one side of the paradoxical equation without the other is dead -- and thus, the one polarity without its opposite is the proverbial forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil).

If it is true that the historical man Jesus manifested a oneness with Creator-God as set forth in the original Gospel Accounts (see ), then we can say that he was God Manifest in the flesh. Yet, it is also true that the historical Jesus was very much a man -- just as all other men -- who prevailed and overcame. Which means that we are bound to profound error if we attempt to portray the historical Jesus as God, or if we attempt to portray him as just a man. And without understanding the equation of man and God -- the physical and the spiritual -- and the third-force balance of the soul of man -- then it will remain impossible for the mind of the person to evolve beyond a very low-level human reality -- i.e., carnal consciousness. From a Christian perspective, the reading of either the scriptures, or the great bulk of Christian books, can do absolutely nothing to bring about the necessary development of mind, because what is being read totally lacks the opposite polarity within the foundational equation -- and therefore is nothing more than ideological programming that brings about mental and spiritual impotence. But from a Church perspective of traditional organized religion, a congregation of blind-faith believes is the objective of the charlatan clergy and political leaders who used religion to control the masses.

By nature, religion is intended to bring about a marriage of the intuitive (feminine) with the linear (male) spheres of mind (see Intuitive vs Linear) -- and as with all evolved marriages, the two become One and Whole within the construct of the Union. But this essential Spiritual Marriage of opposites, becomes totally undermined by Church dogma and doctrines of belief. Why? Because Church dogma peddled to the masses -- and as such, is intended to explain what is incomprehensible from an organic-mind perspective -- and because it is politically promoted as the only answer to the equation -- while all other (opposing) positions either rejected, and/or even condemned as heresy -- then there can be no movement beyond that very low level carnal understanding, until the marriage of opposites is instituted. From a biblical perspective, a linear construct and pattern that supports linear reasoning, can very much be portrayed as a same-sex union -- as can an intuitive perspective that supports intuitive reasoning. From a biblical perspective, same sex unions are an abomination, because such unions squander away one's inheritance -- i.e., one's vital life-force -- with nothing gained and no development brought about. Growth and development cannot be brought about, unless you first have a marriage of the linear and intuitive opposites in support of the third-force balance of higher mind development. An example being that from a Christian perspective, without understanding how man can manifest Creator-God in the flesh -- which necessitated a rejection of the original Gospel message (see ) -- Church dogma has made it impossible for the congregation of believers to follow in TheWay, subjecting them to a fate where believers will remain perpetually flat-lined from a spiritual perspective.

In ancient times, one of the primary purposes of religion was the political control of the people. If you opposed the leaders of the Jews, you would be stoned. If you opposed the Romans, you could get crucified. A recent EPA official was forced to resign by suggesting that the EPA deals with farmers in a similar manner that the Romans conquered towns and villages (see CNN) when he was quoted as explaining: "like when the Romans conquered the villages in the Mediterranean. They'd go into little villages in Turkish towns and they'd find the first five guys they saw and crucify them." Anyone who opposed the ideology of the emperor, was immediately dealt with. And since the emperor was the vicar of God -- and even promoted as God manifest in the earth -- to oppose the religion of the emperor, was to oppose God -- and as a heretic, was immediately dealt with. In the fourth century the two most powerful religions were Mithraism and a very pagan form of Christianity -- and as the political leader of the empire, Constantine synthesized the two into one religion, in order to bring about a peaceful harmony in the empire. And because the Spiritual Christians -- along with the Ebionite Nazirenes -- refused to embrace the religion of the emperor -- they were hunted down as heretics -- their scriptures destroyed -- and important original Gospel teachings were declared to be heresy, and were edited out of the Churches official (Canonical) version of the scriptures (see ).

The result was that the consciousness and the reasoning of the leaders of the Church was not only carnal -- but must be evaluated as low-level heathen that totally lacked development. To the degree that it can be said that superstition was probably on a higher rung of the intellectual ladder, than their thinking and mindset. And that their dogmatic doctrines of belief continues to be promoted by a clergy who lives off the collection plate of the superstitious, is the reality of our Churches today. But the problem is that the the intellectuals in our educational systems are totally linear -- having developed in an environment where the intuitive is totally suppressed -- resulting in the self-castrating environment where the inner workings of the Cosmology of Mind that is necessary to understand the Laws and Forces of Consciousness that must be developed, does not exist in our modern quasi-intellectual world. And while there can be no growth in the traditional dogmatic religious world -- or the traditional philosophy and ideology of the pseudo-intellectual word of the educrats who dogmatically rule over the thinking of our educational institutions -- only those who properly apply the Key of Knowledge, can possess the wisdom and insight to bring about the objective of walking in TheWay -- escaping what was portrayed by Jesus as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness ), or in the parallel analogy of the illusions of Plato's Cave.

  The Prince Of The Left And Right Hands Of God: How can this be?   You will ask?   Returning to the Clementine Homilies 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).   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?   And, the Laws which were instituted by God in the beginning, inhibited those on 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).  

The modern believer who having adopted the doctrines of men, are 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: "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 made reference to 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, that perpetually returns 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.   What does Origen state:  “What man of sense will agree with the statement that the first, second and third days in which the evening is named and the morning, were without sun, moon and stars, and the first day without a heaven.   What man is found such an idiot as to suppose that God planted trees in paradise in Eden, like a husbandman, and planted therein the tree of life, perceptible to the eyes and senses, which gave life to the eater thereof; and another tree which gave to the eater thereof a knowledge of good and evil?  I believe that every man must hold these things for images, under which the hidden sense lies concealed” (Origen - Huet., Prigeniana, 167 Franck, p. 142).  

Once these words are understood, they are in essence no different than what Paul stated -- what Peter warned in the Clementine Homilies -- the great truths conveyed in the above quotations from the Zohar -- and even St. Augustine in the words: “He is a slave to a sign who uses or worships a significant thing without knowing what it signifies.   But he who uses or venerates a useful sign divinely instituted whose signifying force he understands does not venerate what he sees and what passes away but rather that to which all such things are to be referred.  Such a man is spiritual and free, even during that time of servitude in which it is not yet opportune to reveal to carnal minds those signs under whose yoke they are to be tamed” (De Doctrina Christiana).  

The Fundamentalists who insist that the literal text of the Old Testament is the un-errored  word of God, insist that the earth is only 6,000 years old.   They reject the higher wisdom that teaches that the scriptures are an allegory that conveys inner spiritual truths of the mind and spirit in a series of forms and symbols, and they demand that Genesis be taught as historical truth.   Yet, even a casual examination of the facts by a high school student proves them wrong.   Then, the secular left uses this weak link to condemn the Bible as a whole, and thereby successfully undermines the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.   Yet, what we have in Darwinism is grave error opposing gross ignorance of the manner in which the Old Testament and all scriptures are written -- thus, we have ignorance opposing ignorance.

  The Double Edged Sword Of The Law - Left Hand Of God: What Peter portrays above as the Prince of the Left Hand which brings judgment, death and destruction, and the Prince of the Right Hand which sustains and brings Life, is the Laws of the earthly kingdom which are reflective and on the left, and draw the consciousness of the person into the outer reflective world which is an illusion that is an allusion (see The Great Allegory Of Mind And Matter).   On the other hand, the Laws on the Right sustains the seeker, and attempts to draw the consciousness of the person into the Inner Kingdom where man will encounter and uncover his Source of Being.     

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

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

The first stage of purity must be understood as the Conditions of Birth.   While the meaning of John 9:1-3 has remained disputed because of its reference to sin before birth, the unedited and uncorrupted version in the 53rd chapter of the Gospel of the Nazirenes where it reads: "And at another time as Yeshua passed by, he saw a man who was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?  Yeshua answered, To what importance is it whether this man or his parents sinned? The rewards of our actions return again to us so that the works of the Lord are made manifest. I must work the works of the Lord while in this season. As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world" (see Rewards Of Our Actions).
What are "...the works of the Lord [that] are made manifest"???   The Laws are imbued with the requirement to evolve and perfect every soul through the initial stages of the Alpha, to the Wholeness and Completion of the Omega -- and this is accomplished directly by "...the rewards of our actions [which are perpetually] return[ed] again to us".   If our actions are an impingement to bringing about the next stages of birth which enables each prodigal son to escape the shackles of the Citizen of the Far Country or god/consciousness of the earthly kingdom, and return to their Source of Being, then it is the Laws of the Left Hand which man ignorantly portrays as evil, which takes the necessary corrective reactions to our own actions.   And thus, the above explanation provided by the Apostle Peter: "But that this is so, has been said even by the law in the person of God: ‘I will kill, and, I will make alive; I will strike, and I will heal. For, in truth, He kills and makes alive. He kills through the left hand, that is, through the evil one, who has been so composed as to rejoice in afflicting the impious. And he saves and benefits through the right hand, that is, through the good one, who has been made to rejoice in the good deeds and salvation of the righteous."  
In the above, if a person is born blind because of the question presented by the disciples: "...And his disciples asked him saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?"   This question was asked by the disciples in reference to those who were portrayed as being imprisoned (see The Prison).    But in Jesus' answer in John, it is clarified that this man was not born blind because of being imprisoned -- but rather, because he shares the plight of all mankind with respect to the inherent conditions of the organic physical body and mind which dwells in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness): "Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work" (John 9:3-4 KJV). 

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

In the same way that the Apostle Peter in the above explained that Simon Magus was ordained by the Prince of the Left to bring tribulation to those who were imprisoned (see The Prison) -- and test those who have only underwent the first stage of birth and dwell in the "outer darkness" -- Peter explains about Simon: "He is a power of the left hand of God, and has authority to do harm to those who know not God".   This Left Hand Power and Authority is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son.   In the same way that in the Book of Job what is portrayed as Satan is dispatched into the world to test Job -- who perseveres against the Laws (Satan), and overcomes by bringing about the next stage of birth.   Because of its great importance to what is being presented, I will quoted the subheading entitled Teachings On Soul Evolution from the Gospel Of The Nazirenes web page:



On page 220 of Fragments Of A Faith Forgotten by GRS Mead, he quotes the Septuagint and writes: Job ii. 9: "And I am a wanderer, changing place after place and house after house." The...  passage is found in the version of the Seventy, but is omitted in the English translation.   In the Gospel of the Nazirenes this passage is contained: "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 this is the portrayal of the journey of the soul that has been removed from the scriptures used by the common believers.   When Yeshua said that you must be born again, this next stage of birth cannot be accomplished with mere words -- but is the result of the necessary process of spiritual transformation that is brought about by walking in TheWay, overcoming the Laws within one's self, and achieving the necessary Completion at this level of being.   Thus, the more complete interaction with Nicodemus is presented in the 37th Chapter: "Yeshua 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?  Yeshua 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."    That this above saying is authentic is demonstrated in the fact that it is quoted by the Church Father Hippolytus in his Refutation of All Heresies, Bk VIII, 3, where he writes: "And that these things are so, says (the Docetic), it is possible also to perceive from Job, when he uses the following words: "And I am a wanderer, changing both place after place, and house after house.'"

The translators simply refuse to properly translate the wording into English, because the teaching is in conflict with what both mainstream Judaism and Christianity believe.   The fact that John 9:1 parallels both the meaning of Job in the untranslated Greek, and that of the statement in the Wisdom of Solomon 8:20 which reads: "Yea rather, being good, I came into a body undefiled", does not bother the Church authorities, because it is impossible for them to even envision the true meaning of the scriptures because of their total counterfeit foundational mindset -- a mindset that is in total conflict with the necessary biblical mindset.    And the words quoted by Jesus, are just as relevant today where it is wrtten: "Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:  'These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.  And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men' " (Matt 15:7-9 NKJ).
Returning again to the above statement by the Apostle Peter in the Homilies of Clement: "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."  

The words  "...unless first he had sat down at the same table with them" -- the consumption of food presents a multitude of meanings and realities pertaining to knowledge.   Bread, when used in the scriptures, has nothing to do with the bread that man makes out of wheat and various grains.   From a Gospel perspective, neither does fish have anything to do with the creatures who populate the waters of the earth.   These are important allegorical symbols.    Spiritual Knowledge -- i.e., Gnosis -- is often portrayed as the Divine Manna of the Kingdom.    In view of the fact that Jesus taught that there was only One True Teacher that all should seek out, knowledge which is of the earth and limited by man's doctrines of belief, represents various forms of idolatry.   Food offered to idols can therefore be defined as the experiences of engaging in man's worldly cultures, man's educational institutions which fails to convey to the student the proper mindset and lifestyle which brings about the next stage of soul-birth.   Included in this type of earthly-knowledge is pseudo-religious doctrines which are at variance with the spiritual teachings of TheWay which prepare the disciple to learn directly from the Indwelling Logos (see True Prophet) -- and any pseudo carnal knowledge that is embraced which is consumed instead of Divine Manna (Gnosis).   

The above words, with respect to the Laws which control the Two Princes, is equally important where it warns: "...that neither should have power over any one whom they might wish to benefit or to hurt" -- when Jesus warned the man: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV) -- what he was stating was that if that person once again sits at the table of the Left Hand, that even "...a worse thing come unto thee".    How?   Because the Prince/Laws of the Right Hand would be barred from any further assistance to the person.   Christians close their eyes to the warning in the Epistle to the Hebrews where it states that if a believer "...sins 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."    Why?   Because a believer who willfully sins after repentance and coming to the knowledge of TheWay, is a counterfeit believer who is an "apostate... who crucifies the Son of God afresh -- holding him up to contempt."  (see TheLie and the subheading on Legacy of Martin Luther).     Christians ignore these very clear biblical warnings, because their pseudo-biblical mindset inhibits them from understanding why Peter would state that: "If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: A dog returns to its vomit, and, A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud" (2 Pet 2:20-22 NIV - see The Flawed Doctrine Of Perpetual Redemption).   

Because the Church removed the teachings on the eternal pre-existent soul, Christians can't even begin to comprehend how each person is born into this life in a preordained manner, and that "...each [person is given} according to his own ability" (see Parable Of The Talents).   And why the fate of the complacent believer, is far worse than the unbeliever: “That servant who knows his master's will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows. But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” (Luke 12:47-48 NIV).    And that more is required of every level of believer, than the nonbeliever, is further confirmed in the words: "So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin" (James 4:17).  

It is impossible to have two masters (Matt 6:24) -- and as Peter explained in the Homilies of Clement, this reality is a matter of Law that was ordained in the beginning of Creation -- i.e., that when " 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".

And in understanding the Laws, it is therefore impossible for those who have sat at the table of the Left -- i.e., "He is a power of the left hand of God, and has authority to do harm to those who know not God" -- to know anything of value or truth.   Why can't those who dwell under the power of the Left Hand understand the inner spiritual meaning of the scriptures?   Or know anything of any real spiritual value?   As presented in the above: "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.  You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, 'Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.'  But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, 'Raca,' is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, 'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell.   Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.  Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still with him on the way, or he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison.  I tell you the truth, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny" (Matt 5:17-26 NIV).  

The debts against one's brothers and sisters remains as a connection in each person's Etheric body-mind.   So long as you remain negatively connected to these other people, you remain anchored and shackled to the consciousness of the earth.   That those who are cast into The Prison, cannot be released until they have repaid the debts they owe -- i.e., "...I tell you the truth, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny" -- is a reality that spans eons of lifetimes -- lifetimes remaining under the power and control of the Left Hand of Correction.   And this is declared in 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).  

When Jesus portrayed those who he taught in allegorical parables that concealed the true spiritual meaning as being blind who could not see, and deaf who would not hear or perceive, this condition which inhibited their understanding was brought about by the Laws by virtue of the fact that their master was the prince of the Left Hand  -- i.e., the Power of Correction that tests and prepares the prodigal sons and daughters to move onto a higher reality of being.   And, as stated above, so long as the negative attachments are maintained in the Etheric Field/Mind of the people, then they remain carnal in their thinking -- and it is the drain of vital-life force and the connections into the earth that attaches each person to the (grade) level they are at, by inhibiting them from developing and being able to access the higher areas of mind that are necessary to understand anything beyond the vibratory frequencies of this world of illusions.    And herein lies the problem that few carnal critics ever consider -- i.e., Organic man rejects the higher reality of his own soul-self and the Mysteries of the Kingdom as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery), because his mind has not yet developed to the point where he is able to understand his own higher soul-reality.    And these connections to others that are maintained in the Etheric Fields, are representative of those areas of mind that must still be developed.    Which means that the present events in our life has not only been orchestrated by the actions in our own past -- but are again presented to us by the Laws as a test to Judge whether we have overcome the void in our development, and whether we are prepared to move onward to a higher level.    Thus, when understood from this perspective, every day of our lives is truly judgment day.    And the Power that returns to each person the fruit of their own past 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) -- is the Laws of the Left Hand of Correction. 


The Table Of Demons


The teachings of Jesus are spiritual, and embody the reality that the disciple will learn from the One Teacher who he will find in the Temple and Kingdom within.  It is also taught by Jesus that the people who live in accordance with the teachings and customs of this world, will be severely influenced by demons and discarnate spirits -- as seen in the teaching of Peter in the Clementine Homilies: "But the reason why the demons delight in entering into men's bodies is that, being disembodied spirits and having perverted desires after meat and sex, but not being able to partake of these due to being spirits, and wanting organs fitted for their enjoyment, they enter the bodies of men in order to gain organs with which to satisfy their lusts, both meat and sex."   Peter further taught that we open the door to these demons and discarnate spirits when we eat dead flesh at the table of demons: "But you are still ignorant of this law, that everyone who worships demons or their idols, or sacrifices to them, or partakes with them of their table, shall become subject to them and receive all punishment from them, as being under wicked lords. And you who, on account of ignorance of this law, have been corrupted beside their altars, and have been satiated with food offered to them, have come under their power, and do not know you have been in every way injured in respect of your bodies. But you ought to know that the demons have no power over any one, unless first he be their table-companion; since not even their chief can do anything contrary to the law imposed upon them by God wherein the demons have no power over any one who does not worship them by being their table-companions in the eating of flesh.... But you, being ignorant of the foreordained law, are under the power of the chief of demons through evil deeds, wherefore you are polluted in body and soul, and in the present life you are tyrannized over by sufferings and demons.... If therefore, ye wish to be the vesture of the Divine Spirit,.... neither believe in idols, nor partake with them of the impure table...."

What Peter is stating is that the very presence of dead animals in the body opens the door for the vibration of death -- i.e., demons and discarnate spirits -- to bring the person under their demonic control.  It was for this reason in the Gospel of the Nazirenes that Jesus stated that those believers of the simple faith could not be admitted into the inner core of the New Covenant while still eating the flesh of slain beasts: "And again that one asked, If anyone comes to us who eats flesh and drinks strong drink, how shall we receive them? And Yeshua said to him, Let such a person abide in the outer court until they cleanse themselves from these grosser evils; for till they perceive, and repent of these, they are not fit to receive the higher mysteries."  What this is further teaching is the reality that those who eat meat cannot enter the Kingdom within, and cannot learn directly from the One Teacher.

In the original teachings of The Way, the followers of Jesus were required to do no harm to any living creature -- whether animal or man. Jesus was called the Prince of Peace -- he preached a Gospel where peace was the essence of the disciple’s life and manner of thinking. In the Nazirene Gospel it is expressed in numerous places that God expected man inflict no harm to any living creature -- and for food, man was to eat only the vegetation and fruit of the earth, as seen in the words: "And God said, See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food; and it was so. Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day" (Gen 1:29-31 NKJ).

Unlike the carnal Jewish sects of the Sadducees and Pharisees, Spiritual Israelites (Essenes-Ebionites-Nazirenes) who were the true people of the New Covenant, were always vegetarians.   If the objective of the teachings of The Way is to return the prodigal son to the Kingdom from which he originally emerged, then he must live in the manner of God's original vision, and do no harm to any living creature.   With respect to the above verses in the Book of Genesis, the Keil & Delitzsch Commentary on the Old Testament writes: "From this it follows, that, according to the creative will of God, men were not to slaughter animals for food, nor were animals to prey upon one another; consequently, that the fact which now prevails universally in nature and the order of the world, the violent and often painful destruction of life, is not a primary law of nature, nor a divine institution founded in the creation itself, but entered the world along with death at the fall of man, and became a necessity of nature through the curse of sin. It was not till after the flood, that men received authority from God to employ the flesh of animals as well as the green herb as food (Gen 9:3); and the fact that, according to the biblical view, no carnivorous animals existed at the first, may be inferred from the prophetic announcements in Isa. 11:6-8; 65:25, where the cessation of sin and the complete transformation of the world into the kingdom of God are described as being accompanied by the cessation of slaughter and the eating of flesh, even in the case of the animal kingdom."   

What the Keil & Delitzsch Commentary clarifies is the fact that if man is to return to the Kingdom, then he must inflict no harm upon any living creature.   This is one of the main tenets of what is referred to as the Royal Law of the Most High.  With respect to the above verses sited at Isaiah 11:6-7, Keil & Delitzsch Commentary writes: "There now reign among irrational creatures, from the greatest to the least -- even among such as are invisible -- fierce conflicts and bloodthirstiness of the most savage kind. But when the Son of David enters upon the full possession of His royal inheritance, the peace of paradise will be renewed, and all that is true in the popular legends of the golden age be realized and confirmed. This is what the prophet depicts in such lovely colours. The wolf and lamb, those two hereditary foes, will be perfectly reconciled then. The leopard will let the teazing kid lie down beside it. The lion, between the calf and stalled ox, neither seizes upon its weaker neighbour, nor longs for the fatter one."   

Unlike the Old Testament, in the New Testament there is the very clear and open declaration that the Kingdom of God will never come upon the earth as carnal man expects, because it already exists within us (Luke 17:20-21).   The objective, then, of the teachings of The Way, was to prepare carnal man for the next stage of birth that will enable him to gain access into the inner Kingdom.   In order to accomplish this, he must live his life in the manner of God's original vision, and inflict no harm to any living creature.   This requirement which was very clearly presented in the scriptures in their original form, was altered and removed from our Bibles by the Gentiles and Pagan Church of the Roman Empire. 

Perhaps the most clear explanation was given by Jesus in the thirty-third chapter of the Nazirene Gospel where he taught: "Jesus was teaching His disciples in the outer court of the temple and one of them said to Him, Master, it is said by the priests that without shedding of blood there is no remission. Can then the blood offerings of the laws take away sin? And Jesus answered, No blood offering, of beast or bird, or man, can take away sin. For how can the conscience be purged from sin by the shedding of innocent blood? Nay, it will increase the condemnation. The priests indeed receive such offerings as a reconciliation of the worshippers for the trespasses against the Law of Moses; but for sins against the Law of God there can be no remission, save by repentance and amendment. Is it not written in the prophets, Put your blood sacrifices to your burnt offerings, and away with them, and cease from the eating flesh. I did not speak to your fathers nor commanded them, concerning these things, when I brought them out of Egypt. But this thing I commanded saying, Obey my voice and walk in the ways that I have commanded you, and you will be my people, and it shall be well with you. But they did not listen, nor inclined their ear. And what doth the eternal command you, but to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with your God? Is it not written that in the beginning God ordained the fruits of the trees and the seeds and the herbs to be food for all flesh? But they have made the house of prayer a den of thieves, and for the oblation with incense, they have polluted my altars with blood, and eaten of the flesh of the slain. But I say to you, shed no innocent blood nor eat flesh. Walk upright, love mercy, and do justly, and your days shall be long in the land".

What Jesus is teachings is that if we wish to dwell in the Paradise of our Creator God, and inherit the promise of eternal life, then we must live in the manner that God intended when mankind dwelled in Eden. We must do no harm to any creature -- we must cease to do evil -- and we must "do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God". And if you say that such a thing is impossible -- that you cannot live your life in this manner -- then your soul has eternity to aimlessly wander this world of suffering, death and pain, until which time you desire to enter into the Paradise that awaits you.

Natural man often has great problems when he attempts to embrace such a manner of life. He reasons: The animals were put here for me to eat. The problem is that because he is ruled over by the beasts of his animal nature -- i.e., carnivores -- he craves the blood and fat of slain beasts. In scripture, the good animals are always portrayed as vegetarians that inflict no harm upon any other creature -- i.e., the lamb -- and if we are to make any progress in following in The Way, we must convert the lower nature within us from a beast, to a subdued companion that supports our quest of higher consciousness.   We cannot even begin to accomplish this transformation while our physical bodies are the tombs of dead animals.   Why is this truth not more clear in our Bibles today: It is near impossible for carnal, sensually driven men not to eat the flesh of slain beasts.   In like manner, the teachings of The Way were unacceptable to the Gentile-heathen world, so they simply eliminated what was objectionable in the scriptures they inherited from the holy men of Spiritual Israel.

Even among the biblical manuscripts and texts we use, there still remains references to Jesus condemning the eating of flesh -- but we choose not to place these condemnations in our English translations: The oldest known complete copy of our Gospels is called the Evangelion Da - Mepharresh and in it we find Jesus saying at Luke 21:34: "See that you do not make your minds heavy, to do this, never eat meat or drink wine."   In my own experiences, on my very first journey into the Kingdom when I was brought into the Presence of the Light, I was told to cease from eating any flesh for food.

Modern Christians often point to the biblical verse where the Pharisees ask Jesus: "Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don’t wash their hands before they eat!" (Matt 15:2 NIV) -- and the answer of Jesus to affirm that Christians were not required to observe the dietary restrictions in the Old Testament: "What goes into a man’s mouth does not make him ‘unclean,’ but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him ‘unclean… Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man ‘unclean.’ For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what make a man ‘unclean’; but eating with unwashed hands does not make him ‘unclean’" (Matt 15:11-20 NIV).

Regardless of the fact that what is being presented here is true -- the question remains, is it the whole truth? What should make us question the completeness of what is being presented, and give us an immediate clue that these verses have been doctored, is the fact that we know the author of this scripture -- i.e., the Apostle Matthew -- was himself a vegetarian, as seen in the words of Clement of Alexandria: "Accordingly, the apostle Matthew partook of seeds, and nuts, and vegetables, without flesh" (Clement; The Instructor). In the Clementine Homolies, the Apostle Peter is quoted as saying: "I live on Olives and Bread to which I rarely only add Vegetables."   

If we add to this the witness of Eusebius, who quotes Hegesippus and writes of James, the brother of Jesus, and first leader of the New Covenant Church: "He drank no wine or strong drink, nor did he eat meat".   Hegesippus is further cited by Eusebius and tells us that "...the Lord's brother...was Holy from his birth. Everyone from the Lord's time till our own has called him the Righteous", and that "[b]ecause of his unsurpassable Righteousness he was called the Righteous, and Oblias," the latter being a strange word he describes as meaning "Bulwark of the People, and Righteousness," (E.H. 2.23); for Epiphanius, the word means "Wall"; for Eusebius, the "Protection of the People."  James was considered to be such a true holy man who was a Nazirene (of the vow) from birth, that Epiphanius, Bishop of Salamis (315-404 CE), who had access to works he said were called the Anabathmoi Jacobou (the 'Ascents of James') and the Gospel of the Hebrews, and writes that: "once during a drought, he [James] lifted his hands to Heaven and prayed and at once Heaven sent rain...Thus they no longer called him by his name, but his name was, rather, the Righteous One" [in Hebrew, the 'Zaddik'].   

Is the vision of the perfect life of the Disciple of Jesus manifest in the example of James?  Peter is quoted as saying with respect to James: "Our lord and prophet, who has sent us, declared to us that the Evil One, having disputed with him for forty days, but failing to prevail against him, promised that he would send Apostles from among his subjects to deceive them. Therefore, above all, remember to shun ANY APOSTLE, TEACHER OR PROPHET WHO DOES NOT ACCURATELY COMPARE HIS TEACHING WITH JAMES...the brother of our Lord...and this, even if he comes to you with recommendations" (Clementine Homilies 11.35).  Thus, we are able to see where the present-day doctrines and lifestyle associated with the Christian Church today, is merely the work of the apostles of the Evil One.

In view of the fact that it is well documented that all the Messianic followers of Jesus did not eat the flesh of animals, we should question why a religious society of vegetarians would promote the eating of animal flesh?   They did not!  Even among the Gentile converts, the earliest of Christians abstained from the eating of flesh.  The Church Father Irenaeus recounts how, when the followers of Jesus were accused of cannibalism with respect to the eating of the Lord's body and drinking his blood, the martyr Blandina replied: "How should those persons endure such accusation, who, for the sake of the practice of piety, did not avail themselves even of the flesh that was permitted them to eat?"  In like manner St. Jerome wrote: "The eating of Flesh Meat was unknown up to the big flood, but since the flood they have the strings and stinking juices of Animal Meat into our mouths, just as they threw in front of the grumbling sensual people in the desert (Essenes). Jesus Christ, who appeared when the time had been fulfilled, has again joined the end with the beginning, so that it is no longer allowed for us to eat the Flesh of Animal Meat."   In total agreement St. Basil wrote: "The steam of Meat meals darkens the Spirit. One can hardly have virtue if one enjoys Meat meals and feasts. In the Earthly Paradise, no one Sacrificed Animals, and no one ate the Flesh of Animal Meat."   Clement of Alexandria in like manner explained: "Sacrifices were invented by men to be a pretext for Eating the Flesh of Animals."

That the New Testament in like manner condemned the eating of flesh is seen in the Gospel of the Nazirenes, where we can see what the original message that Jesus taught conveyed to the reader: "And Jesus said, ‘Well has Moses commanded you to be clean, and to keep your bodies clean, and your vessels clean, but you have added things which ofttimes cannot be observed by everyone at all times and in all places. Hear me therefore, not only unclean things entering into the body of man defile the man, but much more do evil thoughts and unclean things which pour from the heart of man, defile the inner man and others also. Therefore take heed to your thoughts and cleanse your hearts and let your food be pure. These things ought you to do, and not to leave the others undone. Whosoever breaks The Law of Purification of necessity, are blameless, for they do it not of their own will, neither despising The Law which is just and good. For cleanliness in all things is great gain. Be not therefore followers of evil fashions of the world, even in appearance; for many are led into transgression by the outward seeming, and the likeness of evil" (NG 43:13-16). Thus, the original words of Jesus paint an entirely different picture than the corrupted texts of our modern biblical translations.

Further confirmation that the original people of the New Covenant ate no flesh foods is seen in the Clementine Homily 7, chap 4, where it reads: “Wherefore, as then ye were deceived by the forerunner Simon, and so became dead in your souls to God, and were smitten in your bodies; so now, if you repent, as I said, and submit to those things which are well-pleasing to God, you may get new strength to your bodies, and recover your soul’s health. And the things which are well-pleasing to God are these: to pray to Him, to ask from Him, recognizing that He is the giver of all things, and gives with discriminating law; to abstain from the table of devils, not to taste dead flesh, not to touch blood; to be washed from all pollution; and the rest in one word, — as the God-fearing Jews"  

While these teachings of Jesus might sound alien to us today, there are countless first century writings that demonstrate their genuineness.   In another writing known as The Essene Gospel of Piece which was found by a priest who was working in the Vatican Library, these same teachings are very clearly presented when Jesus tells the carnal Jews why they are blind to man's indwelling spiritual reality: "Jesus said: You do not understand the words of Life, because you are in Death. Darkness darkens your eyes and your ears are stopped with deafness. For I tell you, it Profits you not at all that you pore over Dead Scriptures if by your deeds you deny him who has given you the Scriptures. I tell you truly, God and his Laws are not in that which you do. They are not in Gluttony and Wine-Bibbing, Flesh Eating, neither in Riotous Living, nor in Lustfulness, nor in seeking after Riches, nor yet in Hatred of your Enemies. For all these things are far from the True God and his Angels. But all these things come from the Kingdom of Darkness and the Lord of all Evils. And all these things do you carry in yourselves; and so the Word and the Power of God enter not into you, because all manner of Evil and all manner of Abominations have their dwelling in your body and in your Spirit. If you will, that the living God’s Word and his Power may enter you, Defile not your Body and your Spirit; for the Body is the Temple of the Spirit, and the Spirit is the Temple of God. Purify, therefore, the Temple, that the Lord of the Temple may dwell therein and occupy a place that is worthy of GOD."

In our search for truth, we are presented with a uniform all-pervading doctrine which emerges from the first century people of the New Covenant -- a doctrine which portrays the absolute need to live in harmony with the Royal Law of the Most High.   Moreover, these same words are relevant to the people who portray themselves as the followers and believers in Jesus today.   The body is the Temple of God -- and those who defile the temple are wasting their time when they philosophically call upon the name of the Lord.   Those who purify the Temple, are those who truly believe in the Son of God, live in strict accord with his teachings, and permit the indwelling Light to fill every aspect of the True Christian's Life.

The Voices That People Hear


The Voices People Hear: Most people cannot even contemplate the problem that confronts them, because they are under the illusion that they are a separate and an individual entity that is in control of their minds and being -- when actually, nothing could be further from the truth.  In the Book of Acts we are told that we live and move within the Mind/Body of God -- "And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, 'For we are also His offspring'" (Acts 17:26-28 NKJ).  What Paul is making reference to is the very Pantheistic model of Creation that was held by the Greek philosophers who Paul quotes, as seen in the words of the Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary: "This is the first half of the fifth line, word for word, of an astronomical poem of Aratus, a Greek countryman of the apostle's and his predecessor by about three centuries. It is found also (nearly as here) in a religious hymn of Cleanthes of Troas, a contemporary of Aratus. But, as our speaker hints, the same sentiment is to be found in other Greek poets. They meant it, doubtless, in a pantheistic sense...".  

Quoting the article on Science Proves Religion: In his 1951 textbook on quantum theory, Bohm offered some interesting speculations on the analogies between quantum processes and thought processes, thus carrying further the celebrated statement made by the astronomer James Jeans two decades earlier: “Today there is a wide measure of agreement… that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”; and the statement by astronomer Arthur Eddington:  “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”.   More recently, cyberneticist David Foster described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   The holographic theory says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space.   The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”  
Thus, Science has merely proven what the Apostle declared in the first century -- i.e., that we came into being through the Thoughts of God -- that the universe is a Great Thought -- and that what we perceive as dense matter, is merely a frequency of thought-vibration that the brain interprets as being concrete.  What this also means is that in may ways, the inner core of science has moved beyond the limitations of most religions in their understanding of man's higher reality. 

The above article on Science Proves Religion demonstrates that we live in a multidimensional reality of parallel realms that though appear separate from our very limited perspective, are all intimately connected and balanced on a cosmic harmonic scale.  Throughout the New Testament we observe Jesus casting out demons -- and these demons and discarnate spirits which dwell in parallel realms not only influence our thoughts and manner of thinking, but in many instances have the ability to enter into an individual's body and dwell simultaneously with them.  Taking this reality one step further, at an ultimate level is the realm that Jesus called the Kingdom of God that can be entered while we are still alive in the body with a change of mind.  

The down side to this integrated reality is seen in the fact that when a person is not intimately connected to their indwelling pre-existent soul that is consciously independent of us in a parallel inner realm -- and the mind/body is grounded to the elemental powers of this world -- then our mind acts as an antenna that receives the thought frequencies of this realm, including the discarnate spirits that dwell in earth bound realms.  What this means is that the voices which people hear is often directed into the mind of the individual from these parallel realms where discarnate spirits dwell -- many of whom are earthbound and spiritually ignorant -- and many of these spirits enjoy deceiving people -- and while some believe they are helping the people in this world, these spirits don't know any more than when they physically lived in this world.  Those people of the simple faith who are under the misconception that they are talking to Jesus, YHWH, God, Mary, etc., are actually unknowingly communicating with discarnate spirits.   Some of these spirits live to play games with people -- i.e., play Jesus, God, Mary, etc. -- others are genuinely motivated to help people.  Many Evangelical churches have more earthbound spirits in attendance than people.  They put thoughts into people's heads -- they love the fire and brimstone preachers -- and they view those who think they are speaking in tongues as a welcome mat.  But these same earthbound spirits also frequent bars where they are able to get into the body of unsuspecting drinkers -- induce people to engage in undisciplined sex -- take drugs -- and engage in any behavior that weakens the individual so they (spirits) are better able to enter the body and feel the sensual impulses of the flesh.  Spiritual ignorance as practiced in our churches, taught in our educational systems, and embraced by our liberal culture today, always is conducive to discarnate spirits manifesting in the (unsuspecting) people.

Spiritual societies such as the Essenes understood that the more they could manifest their own souls/higher selves in the body, the more they were able to segregate themselves from these discarnate spirits who thrived upon the ignorant people of this world.  In this respect, the literal interpretation of the Torah was actually a beginning point for carnal man to take control of his own mind/body.  In the Torah the people were instructed to eat only clean (vegetarian) animals with the blood drained from them.  They were instructed to have sex only with their husbands/wives in a committed relationship.  Even the use of different types of cloth can have a disrupting effect on the energies of the body/mind.  And of course, they were told to have nothing to do with the heathen of this world who were carnal, lawless and undisciplined.  All these prohibitions were designed to make the person more in control of their own body/mind, and begin the process of spiritual growth.

The problem is that while the Torah is good for the elementary seeker -- i.e., the masses who are of the simple faith -- it is absolutely necessary to go beyond the written word in one's search for Spirit and Truth.  Thus, the Essenes employed a system of cleansings and disciplines that were designed to move the seeker beyond the literal word of the Torah.  Among other things they understood that the kosher dietary laws was merely the beginning, and one had to eliminate the presence of all death from the body in order to bring about the spiritual transformation of their lower (animal) nature.   They understood that if the seeker is to return to the Edenic Kingdom, they must live as if they dwelled in the Garden of Paradise.

The reality of the situation is that the carnal people of this world are literally plagued by discarnate spirits -- and yet, they know it not!  A medium, on the other hand, has developed the ability to focus in on communication with certain discarnate spirits -- or ones who they believe are certain spirit -- and bridge the gap between realms.  Some people who have developed this selective communication actually enter life with the intention of relying upon certain spirits to help them.  People such as Arthur Ford, Edgar Cayce, Alice Bailey, and others, were able to manifest great wisdom through this ability.  But the majority of people who attempt mediumship without the selectivity, are usually greatly misled -- but so also are the preachers and others who unknowingly are influenced by discarnate spirits and think they are Jesus, YHWH, Mary and God.   

The core objective of all Gnostic religions is to open the door to one's own soul/higher self.  To accomplish this, the seeker must take control of their body by bringing harmony and Oneness.  They must cleanse their bodily temple of all defilements with respect to food, thoughts, and external influences of every type.   Our soul is the Being of Light that dwells in a parallel realm and is consciously independent of us (see ).  The objective is to first learn to exclude all thoughts and impressions from outside of our being in the endeavor to open the door of communication with our soul/higher self, and eventually be able to manifest our soul or true self in the body.  This is not an easy thing to do, and it requires much work and discipline on our part.  And thus the problem -- i.e., the great majority of people are simply not willing to live as Jesus taught -- they are not willing to pick up their own cross and crucify their lower nature -- and they are not willing to live separate and apart from the culture, thinking and mindset of the people of this world.  They therefore attempt to worship two masters -- and in doing so, they only bring about their own spiritual destruction.  It is not a matter of judgment -- but rather, one of failing to bring about the next stage of birth -- and because our religious and quasi-spiritual leaders fail to comprehend the process of birth, they fail to enter into life.  We are a threefold being of physical, soul/mind and spirit, and we must bring about each of these stages of birth in order to enter into the Kingdom in the manner of the prodigal son returning to the Father.  Our physical birth was the first stage of birth -- the next is soul birth that if we fail to accomplish, we will be as a fetus who miscarries.  Thus, Gnostic religions reject Spiritualism because it can not only mislead, but being an external communication, is outside of the framework of the true objective of these religious societies.
