There are two ways,

one of life and one of death,

but a great difference between the two ways

  The Religion Of Roman Emperors: Do you believe and follow the teachings of Jesus?  Or do you unknowingly filter what you think you know of these teachings through the dogma of Roman Emperors?   And if the means to prove the validity of your beliefs were presented to you, what would you do?   Would you dismiss the what is presented?   Or, would you make the effort to prove the Truth?   The Apostle commands to: “prove all things…” (1 Thes 5:21 KJV).    But would you?  

In presenting you, the reader with some background into proving the Truth, let us first examine the historical perspective: Sadly, the historical facts have proven beyond any doubt that (1) the modern Church has absolutely nothing in common with the original teachings of Jesus; (2) the modern dogmatic Church does not at all represent the purpose and objectives of the original teachings; (3) contrary to the modern doctrinal positions, it is easily demonstrated that the dogmatic blank-check of salvation is easily proven to be a fraud (see TheLie.org ).  How can I make such a statement?   Because once the facts are known, what is practiced today is very much The Religion Of Roman Emperors.   To what degree is this true?   In a recent interview with Christianity Today Brian McLaren made the very informed statement that: "One of the problems is that the average Christian in the average church who listens to the average Christian broadcasting has such an oversimplified understanding of both the Bible and of church history - it would be deeply disturbing for them to really learn about church history."    So disturbing, that the vast majority of modern Christians would literally run Jesus out of their Churches as a heretic -- calling him an impostor -- and not even recognize the purpose and objectives of the original teachings of Jesus known as TheWay.    

When biblical scholar and Dead Sea Scroll expert A. Powell Davies attempted to warn the Christian world that “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” -- and another scholar and expert Prof. John Allegro stated that the Dead Sea Scrolls provide overwhelming evidence that “...may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church.   This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers.   The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine” -- what the biblical scholars confirmed is the fact that the dogmatic doctrines and theology of the Church has virtually nothing in common with the core teachings and objectives of the Original Gospel Message of the Good News!   But in view of the fact that the original followers of Jesus were all hunted down as heretics because they refused to accept the religion of the emperor, it should come as no surprise that I make the statement that modern Christianity has virtually nothing in common with both the pre-Nicene Church (325CE), or the original teachings of TheWay.  

While there are sincere and dedicated Christians who strive daily to serve the Lord.  Very often they are the most giving and kindest people you will encounter -- often doing good for the sake of doing good.   And while doing good for the sake of doing good is Godly, the problem is seen in the fact that sincerity alone cannot fulfill the objective stated by the Apostle Paul that each Christian should move on towards spiritual maturity.   Why?   Because they have been severely hindered by the dogmatic opium of Roman Emperors that has undermined the Gospel Message with the suppression of important teachings, and the corruption of the scriptures (see BibleCorruption.com ).  But this was foreseen by the Apostle Paul when he wrote that there would come a day in the near future where the Church which portrays itself as Christian will worship the AntiChrist in place of God (see The Church Of The AntiChrist).  With respect to the statement of Paul, the Adam Clark Commentary writes: “[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.   Or, as stated by John Wesley, Paul was portraying "...that fatal period when the Emperor Constantine called himself a Christian; From this time onward - the Christians had no more of the Spirit of Christ than the heathens...." (Wesley's Works, vol 7, Sermon 89, pp. 26-27).  

From an historical perspective, the perfect example of the clergy of the third century is that of Paul Of Samosata (see Typical Orthodox Clergy), where Edward Gibbon writes in his The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire that Paul "...may serve to illustrate the condition and character of the times ...Paul considered the service of the church as a very lucrative profession ...Against those who resisted his power, or refused to flatter his vanity, the prelate of Antioch was arrogant, rigid, and inexorable; but he relaxed the discipline, and lavished the treasures of the church on his dependent clergy, who were permitted to imitate their master in the gratification of every sensual appetite. For Paul indulged himself very freely in the pleasures of the table, and he had received into the Episcopal palace two young and beautiful women, as the constant companions of his leisure moments".   Thus, Paul of Samosata who Gibbon states is merely an example of the clergy who portrayed themselves as Orthodox, corrupted the teachings and the very spiritual objectives of the Gospel -- i.e., "...Laymen were told by the priests that only the priests really knew what was necessary for salvation and that laymen must accept the "mysteries" on faith and on the priests' authority. This kept the laity baffled by the nonsensical "mysteries", confused, and dependent on the priests for information about the requirements for salvation."

While non-Roman Catholics will respond to the above by countering that they have rejected the dogma of the priests, and they derive their beliefs directly from the New Testament Gospels.   Yet, when the Church of Constantine endeavored to make the teachings of the Gospels in sync with fourth century Roman Pagan thought and culture, to ignore the facts with respect to the manner in which the corrupters of the Word recreated the message of the scriptures in order to make it compatible to church doctrine, is to make oneself disingenuous to the very Son of God to whom we proclaim to be faithful to.  The truth and the facts to the matter is very clearly expressed in the words of Prof. Bart D. Ehrman in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, where he warns us that: "...theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy" -- which orthodoxy was to bring the text of the Bible into conformity with the doctrines and tenets of the Church of the Roman Emperor Constantine. To close our hearts and minds to the facts, and ignore the truth, is from a New Covenant perspective synonymous with relinquishing any claim whatsoever with respect to being a follower of Jesus.

When did the corruption of the scriptures begin?   There is strong evidence which confirms the charge that the Gospels were corrupted as soon as they were given into the hands of many of the Gentile Churches.   Something which no sincere believer today should take lightly is the charge against Christians by Celsus, the second century Epicurean philosopher, who alleged that: "Certain Christians, like men who are overcome by the fumes of wine and care not in the least what they say, alter the original text of the Gospels so that they admit of various and almost indefinite readings. And this, I suppose, they have done out of worldly policy, so that when we press an argument home, they might have the more scope for their pitiful evasions".   Celsus concludes that because of the wholesale rewriting and corruption of the text of the scriptures, that this fraud has made all of Christianity a bogus lie: "It is clear to me that the writings of the Christians are a lie, and that your fables are not well-enough constructed to conceal this monstrous fiction: I have even heard that some of your interpreters, as if they had just come out of a tavern, are onto the inconsistencies and, pen in hand, alter the originals writings, three, four and several more times over in order to be able to deny the contradictions in the face of criticism." (R.J.Hoffmann's Celsus: On The True Doctrine, Oxford University Press, 1987).   

What teachings were removed from the Gospels?   From a spiritual perspective, the most important.    Moreover, when that segment of the Church which portrayed itself as Orthodox entered into a covenant with the Emperor Constantine, they used the most corrupted versions of the New Testament as a starting point, and then further corrupted the text in order to make it support the tenets of Pagan Rome.    But herein lies the problem: If the Gospels were corrupted -- with many of the most important spiritual teachings edited or removed in order to make them support the tenets of Pagan Rome -- then how can the modern Christian even begin to know the Truth?   The answer is found in the words:  “Then many of the Jewish leaders who heard him say these things began believing him to be the Messiah. Jesus said to them, 'You are truly my disciples if you live as I tell you to, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free’” (John 8:30-32 TLB).    And if we augment this statement with the text of the that translation known as The Message, we can begin to understand the solution to the dilemma -- i.e., "If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure.  Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you."   The key message is in the words that the seeker must "live out what [Jesus taught] ...then you will experience for yourselves the truth".   And in this respect, the Law is that you can never possess any greater Truth than you are willing to live and manifest in your daily life.   So while it is true that the Gospel was corrupted in order to make it support the dogma of the Emperor Constantine and Pagan Rome, it is also true that with the restoral of the suppressed teachings and a desire on the part of Christians to "live out what [Jesus taught] , there is the promise of the Gospel that "...you will experience for yourselves the truth".
With the corrupting of the biblical texts and the hunting down of the Spiritual Christians as heretics because they refused to adhere to the dogma of Pagan Rome, the 4th century Church of Constantine put to death the Spirit of the Church (see The Corruption Of The Church).   Yet, it's Spiritual Castration which totally alienated all generations of future Christian believers from comprehending even what was left of a corrupted and spiritually sanitized New Testament (see Bible Corruption), was implemented in the 6th century.   As an example of how the Christian world was literally forced to adhere to the dogma of the emperors, when the doctrine of the pre-existent soul was outlawed by the Emperor Justinian, the Britannica confirms that the emperor then forced his will upon the Church when he
"...banished the pope to Egypt , and afterwards to an island, until he accepted the Council, which he ultimately did" (see http://Ebionite.com/reincarnation.htm ).    After relenting to the will of the emperor, and finely accepting the decree of the emperor after seven months of imprisonment, it is reported that the pope met with an untimely death before he could even return to the Vatican.   

What are the historical facts with respect to why modern Christians believe in the manner that they do at present?   Quoting from the Dissociation.com web site at Reincarnation Human Consciousness Is Eternal

 

"In the early centuries of Christian history, many battles were waged over issues of doctrine, church councils being convened to settle disputes. In the sixth century Emperor Justinian declared war against the followers of Origen. At Justinian's instigation it appears that a local synod, which convened in Constantinople in the year 543, condemned the teachings of Origen, and ten years later, in 553, Justinian issued his anathemas against Origen, possibly submitting them for final ratification to an extra-conciliary or unofficial session of the Fifth Ecumenical Council - also called the Second Council of Constantinople. The anathemas cursed, among other teachings of Origen, the doctrine of the pre-existence of the soul. The Catholic Encyclopedia gives some rather astonishing information concerning this Fifth Ecumenical Council, permitting the conclusion, on at least technical grounds, that there is no barrier to belief in reincarnation for Catholic Christians. With the exception of six Western bishops from Africa, the council was attended entirely by Eastern bishops, no representative from Rome being present. Although Pope Vigilius was in Constantinople at the time, he refused to attend. In fact, the Pope was Justinian's prisoner since November of 545, when he had been kidnapped from Rome. The president of the Council was Eutychius, Patriarch of Constantinople. 'From the time of Justinian the emperor controlled the patriarch absolutely.'

"There apparently had been intense conflict between Justinian and Pope Vigilius for several years. Violating previous agreements, Justinian in 551 issued an edict against what was known as 'The Three Chapters,' the teachings of three supposed heretics. 'For his dignified protest Vigilius thereupon suffered various personal indignities at the hands of the civil authority and nearly lost his life.' Later, to bring peace between the Eastern and Western branches of the church, this Fifth Ecumenical Council was called. Justinian, however, refused Pope Vigilius' request for equal representation of bishops from the East and West, and summarily convened the council on his own terms; hence the Pope's refusal to attend. When we learn that as many as 165 bishops were present at the final meeting on June 2, only six of whom could possibly be from the West, it can safely be concluded that the voting during all the sessions was very much in Justinian's hands. The Council's 'decrees were received in the East, but long contested in the Western Church, where a schism arose that lasted for seventy years.

Quoting directly from The Catholic Encyclopedia regarding the Fifth Ecumenical Council:
"Were Origen and Origenism anathematized? Many learned writers believe so; and equal number deny that they were condemned; most modern authorities are either undecided or reply with reservations. Relying on the most recent studies on the question it may be held that:  It is certain that the fifth general council was convoked exclusively to deal with the affair of the Three Chapters, and that neither Origen nor Origenism were the cause of it.  It is certain that the council opened on 5 May 553, in spite of the protestations of Pope Vigilius, who though at Constantinople refused to attend it, and that in the eight conciliary sessions (from 5 May to 2 June), the Acts of which we possess, only the questions of the Three Chapters is treated.  Finally it is certain that only the Acts concerning the affair of the Three Chapters were submitted to the pope for his approval, which was given on 8 December, 553, and 23 February, 554.

It is a fact that Popes Vigilius, Pelagius I (556-61), Pelagius II (579-90), Gregory the Great (590-604), in treating the fifth council deal only with the Three Chapters, make no mention of Origenism, and speak as if they did not now of its condemnation.  It must be admitted that before the opening of the council, which had been delayed by the resistance of the pope, the bishops already assembled at Constantinople had to consider, by order of the emperor, a form of Origenism that had practically nothing in common with Origen, but which was held, we know, by one of the Origenist parties in Palestine. . . .  The bishops [at this extra-conciliary session referred to in No. 5 above] certainly subscribed to the fifteen anathemas proposed by the emperor [against Origen]; an admitted Origenist, Theodore of Scythopolin, was forced to retract; but there is no proof that the approbation of the pope, who was at that time protesting against the convocation of the council, was asked."

It is easy to understand how this extra-conciliary sentence was mistaken at a later period for a decree of the actual ecumenical council. (Italics added.) However, one far-reaching result of the mistake still persists, namely, the exclusion from consideration by orthodox Christianity of the teaching of the pre-existence of the soul and, by implication, reincarnation.

In the light of the references to reincarnation in the Bible, and of statements by some of the early Church Fathers, and now of the position of Catholic scholars in disclaiming the crusade against Origen, it is not remarkable that a growing number of the clergy are speaking favorably of the new interest in reincarnation, and are even hoping that this 'lost chord of Christianity' may once more vibrate in harmony with Christ's teaching of hope and responsibility.  Now what do Protestant scholars and theologians say about the supposed condemnation of Origen? Dr. Henry R. Percival writes in A Select Library of Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers.  Did the Fifth synod examine the case of Origen and finally adopt the XV. Anathemas against him which are usually found assigned to it? It would seem that with the evidence now in our possession it would be the height of rashness to give a dogmatic answer to this question. Scholars of the highest repute have taken, and do take today, the opposite sides of the case. . . . To my mind the chief difficulty in supposing these anathematism to have been adopted by the Fifth Ecumenical is that nothing whatever is said about Origen in the call of the council, nor in any letters written in connection with it; all of which would seem unnatural had there been a long discussion upon the matter, and had such an important dogmatic definition been adopted as the XV. anathemas.

 

A wise person would ask the question?  What if the Roman Emperor Justinian was wrong?   With the anathema of the Church Father Origen, the question should be phrased: What if the emperor-politician Justinian was wrong in his condemnation of one of the most saintly and knowledgeable Christians in the history of the Church?   Who was Origen? Origen is called “…the most prominent of all the church fathers” (Encyclopedia. Britannica), and was considered by Jerome to be “the greatest teacher of the Church after the Apostles.” St. Gregory of Nyssa called him “the prince of Christian learning in the Third Century.”   In his Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament, by Dr. F. H. Scrivener, one of the ablest of modern-day biblical scholars and critics writes of Origen: “Origen is the most celebrated biblical critic of antiquity. His is the highest name among the critics and expositors of the early Church. He is perpetually engaged in the discussion of various readings of the New Testament, and employs language, in describing the then existing state of the text, which would be deemed strong if applied even to its present condition, after the changes which sixteen more centuries must needs have produced… Seldom have such warmth of fancy and so bold a grasp of mind been united with the lifelong, patient industry which procured for this famous man the honorable appellation of Adamantius.”  The biblical scholar Wescott says of the Church Father Origen that: “We have not yet made good the positions which he marked out as belonging to the domain of Christian philosophy” (Religious Thought In the West, p. 252).

While the vast majority of modern-day Christians will predictably agree with the actions of the emperor who purged and outlawed the teachings on the pre-existent soul from the Church, all this proves is that the thinking and Gospel paradigm of thought of the modern Christian is founded upon the dogma of Roman Emperors -- and, in the words of Brian McLaren, "...it would be deeply disturbing for them" to even be exposed to the original teachings and objectives that Jesus actually taught.   Origen who was the greatest pre-Nicene biblical scholar, based all his theological positions on the scriptures -- but Origen had access to much purer and uncorrupted biblical texts (see Bible Corruption).   Origen lived during a time-frame prior to the dogma of Roman Emperors being forced upon the Church -- at a time prior to when all Christians who opposed the religion of the emperors were hunted down and murdered as heretics.   And unbeknown to most believers today is the fact that, while it is true that most of the modern-day doctrines of the Church was forced upon the Christian world in this same violent manner -- it can be asserted that the vast majority of modern-day believers are all victims of what has come to be known as the Stockholm Syndrome.    And while it can be stated that modern Christians have the Bible as a guide -- and are no longer reliant upon Rome -- the fact of the matter is that even the Protestant Churches received their Bibles directly from the hand of Rome -- after it was edited and corrupted to support the dogma of Roman Emperors who ruled with an iron fist over the acceptable doctrines of the Church (see BibleCorruption.com ).

What set the stage for the sixth century anathema by the Emperor Justinian of those early Christians who embraced the teachings on the pre-existent soul, was the fourth century take-over of the Church by the Roman Emperor Constantine -- who in much the same manner, declared which doctrines of belief the Church would endorse, and then hunted down all who rejected the religion of the emperor as heretics.   Resulting in the reality that the Spiritual Core of Christianity remains virtually unknown today, because of direct government intrusion into the affairs of the Church with respect to acceptable doctrines of belief.   In the same way that in China only those Churches which are approved by the government are permitted -- with dissidents hunted down and imprisoned or even put to death -- so too was the Church that came into being in the fourth century under the direct control of the Roman Emperors.   That the segment of the Church which called itself Orthodox, was a mere puppet of Pagan Rome and had little to nothing in common with the original teachings and objectives of Jesus and TheWay, should come as no surprise to the modern believer in view of the many statements of biblical scholars such as A. Powell Davies who attempted to warn the Christian world that discoveries such as the Dead Sea Scrolls had confirmed what they had suspected and believed all along -- i.e., that the Emperor Constantine and the Pagan Church of Rome created a religion of blind faith and belief where he wrote that: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).   Thus, this long ignored statement prompts us to ask: Why didn't the biblical scholars understand the true origin of Christianity prior to the discovery and examination of the Dead Sea Scrolls?   To answer this question we must consult the findings of Prof. Elaine Pagles who correctly writes: “It is the winners who write history - their way. No wonder, then, that the viewpoint of the successful majority has dominated all traditional accounts of the origin of Christianity… It suggests that these religious debates - questions of the nature of God, or of Christ - simultaneously bear social and political implications that are crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion. In simplest terms, ideas which bear implications contrary to that development come to be labeled as heresy; ideas which implicitly support it become orthodox” (see Pagles, The Gnostic Gospels).   

Why did the Emperor Constantine adopt Christianity as the only approved religion?   What is important to understand is the fact that the universal religion of the Roman Empire was Mithraism -- and in the third century, Mithraism was failing in its purpose as a means for the government to control the people.   In the fourth century Christianity was adopted by the Roman Imperial Government as the official religion of the empire.  Why?  Certainly not because the Roman Emperors and politicians wanted to become Christ-like!  ”When artificial religions have thus failed to provide the imperial regime with the effective religious sanction that it needs”, writes Arnold Toynbee in his An Historians Approach to Religion, ”there is only one alternative left to an Imperial Government. It must place itself under the aegis of some living religion that has arisen spontaneously and cannot be discounted by the Imperial Government’s subjects as being a cult manufactured by the imperial authorities. In the Roman Empire both these necessary conditions were filled conspicuously by Christianity...”  The Empire was not converted over to the religion of Jesus -- but rather, the Gospels were corrupted (see http://BibleCorruption.com ) in order to make them better support the tenets of Pagan Rome, and the true Spiritual Christians were then hunted down as heretics in order to convert the religion of Jesus to an acceptable version of quasi-Mithraism.   At its essence, Mithraism was the worship of the sun-god that was born on Dec. 25, and resurrected on Easter.  The day of religious observance was changed from the Sabbath, to Sunday which is the day of the sun -- i.e., sun-worship. The Mass was an integral part of Mithraism.

In not learning the lessons of history, modern believers have overlooked the fact that when despots rule, they not only annihilate all opposition -- but they "...write history - their way" -- and they corrupt and burn whatever writings and documents stand in opposition to their supremacy and rule.   Which means that those doctrines of belief that are today seen as orthodox and promoted by the modern-day Church as being authentic, are themselves drawn from the side of "...political implications that [were] crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion" under the direct control of Pagan Rome.   In the case of the Christian Church beginning in the fourth century, to disagree with the doctrines affirmed by the Emperor Constantine, carried with it the sentence of death.   Thus, Edward Gibbon writes in the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire: ”Constantine easily believed that the heretics, who presumed to dispute his opinions or to oppose his commands, were guilty of the most absurd and criminal obstinacy... Not a moment was lost in excluding the ministers and teachers of the separated congregations from any share of the rewards and immunities which the emperor had so liberally bestowed on the orthodox clergy. But as the sectaries might still exist under the cloud of royal disgrace, the conquest of the East was immediately followed by an edict which announced their total destruction”.    Thus, in the same way that whoever did not embrace the religion of the emperor met with the sentence of death, whatever scriptures did not conform to the approved version, was immediately destroyed (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).  

Once the Emperor Constantine began to rule over the Church, all opposition was hunted down and eliminated (see Eye Witness Account).   As an example: Perhaps one of the best voices to the institutional take-over of the Church is directly from the lips of the recent EPA official who was forced to resign (see Top EPA Official Resigns) where it is reported:

Armendariz made the original remarks at a local Texas government meeting in 2010. He relayed to the audience what he described as a "crude" analogy he once told his staff about his "philosophy of enforcement."   

"It was kind of like how the Romans used to, you know, conquer villages in the Mediterranean," he said. "They'd go in to a little Turkish town somewhere, they'd find the first five guys they saw, and they'd crucify them.
"And then, you know, that town was really easy to manage for the next few years," he said.
Armendariz went on to say that "you make examples out of people who are, in this case, not complying with the law ... and you hit them as hard as you can" -- to act as a "deterrent" to others.

The term BC with respect to the beginning of our Common Era, should be reevaluated to indicate Before Constantine with respect to the birth of the Christ that is worshiped in the modern Church and promoted by its secularized (Orthodox) dogma.   That the modern-day Christ and the religion of the Church were conceived and born under the dominion of the Roman Emperor Constantine -- and that the dogma of the Church was purely political, in contradistinction to the spiritual foundation of the original teachings -- is demonstrated in the fact that modern Christianity has very little in common with the original objectives of the teachings of TheWay which was to bring about "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”  (see Expansion Of Mind) -- which has absolutely nothing in common with the blind faith dogmatized Church that came into being in the fourth century under the rulership and doctrinal control of Pagan Rome.   But the fact that the modern Christians worship the satanic god of Constantine should come as no surprise, in view of the fact that the Apostle Paul predicted that the worship of the true God would cease, and those who called themselves Christian would instead worship Satan (see The Church of the AntiChrist).   That the objective of what Paul portrays as the god of this world, is to keep the congregation of Christians ignorant and promoters of blind-faith in the spurious doctrines of Pagan Rome, has for the most part continued to inhibit the True Spiritual ReBirth of the Church.   And while pseudo-priests such as Martin Luther convinced the Church to embrace the dogma of faith apart from actions -- to the degree that every tenet of the modern Church is openly condemned in their own New Testament (see The Lie & The Ten Minute Test), the modern believer continues to ignore the scriptures in their allegiance to the dogma of Pagan Rome.   And, just as equally important to understand, is that "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”  has absolutely nothing to do with the expansion of the physical brain -- but rather, both the refinement of the physical body that permits this expansion of mind to be brought about, and the development of those areas which lie under the control of the innate Intuitive Spheres of the Mind that the physical brain does not naturally support.

With the removal of the teachings on the pre-existent soul, the void that was created has had such far ranging implications, that it has become impossible for modern believers and critics alike to even begin to get a valid sense of the original Gospel meaning and objectives.    The modern Church is faith-based -- founded upon blind-faith -- because the reader lacks the necessary tools to even get a sense of the very purpose of the original teachings of TheWay.   And this secular imposed intervention where the Christian world was literally forced to succumb to the decree of a series of emperors, has had the far ranging effect of spiritually castrating the Church.   What the Bible states is that the lives of each person is orchestrated and scripted by the Laws -- and yet, without an understanding of the Laws that the scriptures states controls all events in this world, the very purpose and meaning of life itself will remain a perpetual enigma -- as will the scriptures.   Jesus himself taught that not even a sparrow can “...fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father” (Matt 10:29 NIV).   And in the very next verse Jesus applies this same reality to man and states that every hair is accounted for -- i.e., "And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered" -- and yet, the Christian world remains totally ignorant with respect to the workings of the Laws that orchestrate and brings about all events that transpire in this world.  

The decrees of the Emperor Justinian not only condemned the teachings on the pre-existent soul, but also the celebrated pre-Nicene Church Father Origen.   Who was Origen?   St. Gregory portrays the Church Father Origen as "the prince of Christian learning" -- while St. Jerome portrays him as "a teacher second only to the Apostles".    It was Origen who openly taught the doctrine of the pre-existent soul (see Early Church On PreDestination) as demonstrated in the words of Origen that “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).   Yet, the Christian world has been largely disenfranchised from the deeper understanding of the Gospel message and spiritual meaning, because of the wholesale corruption of the scriptures (see Bible Corruption) -- and the adoption of manmade doctrines that were forced upon the Church by the Pagan Emperor Constantine -- culminating in the removal of the teachings on the pre-existent soul by the Emperor Justinian in the 6th century.       

Today, Christians have encountered a crossroads -- with their old world very quickly fading away, modern people are demanding answers that the dogma of Roman Emperors remains totally inadequate to supply.   And while there is an answer to every question mankind poses -- answers that can only be presented by an Enlightened People of the Light and TheWay -- the dogma of the Roman emperors remains the very shackles that inhibits the Church from achieving its rightful place as the Light of the World.   And thus, the choice -- i.e., which path should the seeker/disciple choose ?   That of manmade pagan doctrines?  Or the Spiritual Teachings of the Original Gospel Message?   What I will demonstrate is that the pre-Nicene conflict between the Spiritual Christians and those who portrayed themselves as faith-based Orthodox, has always been superficial -- with the only difference being that those concepts which have been traditionally embraced by the faith-based, are in fact elementary ideas pertaining to God that are necessary for the entry-level Christian who lacks the spiritual maturity that the biblical authors wrote warnings about (see Mysteries Of The Gospel ).    With the problem being that so long as the faith-based believer continues to reject important original Gospel teachings, and retains an allegiance to the dogma of Roman Emperors and men in contradistinction to the core Gospel teachings and concepts of TheWay, the faith based believers will remain in an immature state -- perpetually divided by factions and sectarianism that inhibits their spiritual maturity. 

Why has the Church embraced the dogma of Roman Emperors, while rejecting the Original Gospel Objectives -- permitting itself to become immersed in this gravest absurdity and denial of Gospel teachings and facts?   Because it is the victim of what has come to be known as Stockholm Syndrome -- and after being ravished and robbed of its spiritual core and essence by a series of pagan emperors who literally forced their dogma upon the Church, this same body of manmade dogma has rendered the Church spiritually impotent and unable to escape the very dogmatic shackles that enslave the Christian world in a self-exiled Spiritual Diaspora.   

 

 

“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why”

Mark Twain

 

If you stand before the carnal and spiritually immature people of this world and proclaim that God revealed this or that to you, then they will not only listen -- but they will do your bidding and even give you their money and allegiance.   And thus, the leaders of the spiritually immature have been preaching God and depriving their brothers and sisters of Life, since the dawn of time itself.   If, on the other hand, you stood before the carnal and spiritually immature and stated that your true self revealed esoteric knowledge to you that will help them overcome their plight in the "outer darkness" of mind and being of this world (see Outer Darkness), they will condemn and reject you as a "madman" as portrayed in the analogy of Plato's Cave.   If, on the other hand, the person who escaped the illusions of the Cave of this world came and told the other prisoners that they escaped to heaven and saw God, the prisoners inside the cave would proclaim this person a prophet -- or, even God incarnate.   But the very fact that the few who actually escape the Cave of Illusions of this world, attempt to convey to the prisoners the reality of Self that the Gospel of Thomas states you must come to Know, causes the prisoners to condemn these few who escape the Cave of Illusions as heretics, madmen, and demon-possessed.  

The forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (Tree of Duality) is in fact the embodiment of the Divine Pattern of Creation which is holographically imbued with the PARADOXICAL duality of male and female in their infinite forms and expressions.   A paradox is two opposite and often conflicting truths that oppose each other even though they are both equally true.   And when rightly understood, forbidden fruit of the paradoxical opposites of the Tree of Duality can only be rectified on a higher plane (see The Triangle in The Way Of The Monk) -- and if you eat (ingest) the one truth while discarding or rejecting its opposite, then the eating of this fruit/truth sustains you in a state of (spiritual) death.   And one of the greatest of man's paradoxes which confront him, is the reality that while all of Creation dwells within the Mind of God, man dwells within God by PROXY -- meaning that while your higher soul-self is the direct offspring of Creator-God, you are the direct offspring of your higher soul-self -- i.e., "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty...".    

As a generated thought-image of your higher soul-self who is neither male nor female or any of the races -- and is a Being Of Light of pure vital life-force and manifest intellect -- it is impossible for you to become One with God -- because you dwell within the Mind of God by proxy -- and it is your higher soul-self that must return to its Source, which is Creator-God.   And in not understanding the Cosmology of Mind and the many images that make up the higher Soul-Self, or True Self that is not manifest in this physical world, you will mentally and spiritually flat-line in the manner of the Hindus who preached God to the people, in the time of the Buddha.   And since the person you are very much the ego-self in relation to your unmanifest higher soul-self (see The Divine Counterpart), then you lose yourself by becoming the "good ground" within which the embryonic image of your higher soul-self has been planted (see Sower And The Seed) -- and as you find and become your True Self, you will be working to bring about that condition where your True Self can then return to its Source -- which is Creator-God.

 

  The First Fatal Mistake - Before Logos And The Source Of The Gospel: The word prologue literally means: Before Logos -- and when properly understood, Christians are being denied access to the (Indwelling) Logos because the Pagan Church of 4th Century Rome forced the dogma of the emperor on the Christian world -- creating an environment best portrayed as spiritual-castration -- resulting in a total alienation of the community of believers from the path they must travel in TheWay -- which was supposed to enable them to enter the Inner Kingdom -- and being taught in the Presence of the Logos/Son of God.   This Spiritual Manna of the Kingdom which is the Essential Knowledge that can only be conveyed directly into the mind of the sincere seeker/disciple, is represented in the Greek word Gnosis -- which is a knowledge that cannot be read in any books or taught by one man to another -- and only Revealed by the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.   When biblical scholar and Dead Sea Scroll expert A. Powell Davies attempted to warn the Christian world that “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” -- and another scholar expert Prof. John Allegro stated that the Dead Sea Scrolls provide overwhelming evidence that “...may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church.   This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers.   The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine” -- what the biblical scholars confirmed is the fact that the dogmatic doctrines of the Church has virtually nothing in common with the core teachings and objectives of the Original Gospel Message of the Good News!   In an interview for Christianity Today, Lisa Ann Cockrel quoted Brian McLaren's statement: "One of the problems is that the average Christian in the average church who listens to the average Christian broadcasting has such an oversimplified understanding of both the Bible and of church history - it would be deeply disturbing for them to really learn about church history" (see Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right).  But in view of the fact that the original followers of Jesus were all hunted down as heretics because they refused to accept the religion of the emperor, it should come as no surprise that modern Christianity has virtually nothing in common with both the pre-Nicene Church, or the original teachings of TheWay.   

   The Second Fatal Mistake - The Higher Reality Of The Soul And Kingdom Is Incomprehensible To Christians Of The Simple Faith: After Paul had personally taught the congregation of Christians at Corinth, he warned them that all he could give and teach them -- and all that they could receive and comprehend -- was the elementary Gospel teachings that were allegorically presented in what appeared to be an historical account of Jesus and him crucified.  Paul portrayed these entry-level doctrines as the traditions of "Jesus and the crucifixion".   This fact is explored and proven in the subheading entitled Mystery Of The Gospel.   Even after personally teaching this Christian Congregation, Paul warns them that the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom is so incomprehensible to man in his "natural" organic condition of mind, that they would condemn and reject the spiritual meaning of the Gospel as utter "foolishness"!!!   To even imagine that the modern Christian whose doctrines of belief is based upon what the Biblical scholar points out is the gravely flawed "..source and originality of Christian doctrine” that came into being in the fourth century --  and that the modern believer whose thinking has been imbued with this fourth century pagan dogma can merely open the Bible to confirm their beliefs -- and ignore the warning of Paul and the biblical authors that even those Christians who the Apostles personally taught and were of a more pure understanding could not comprehend the true meaning and the  Mystery Of The Gospel, are a people asking to be deceived.    

  The Third Fatal Mistake - The Prison - Dwelling In A Self-Imposed Spiritual Diaspora:   While the analogy of Plato's Cave which portrays a world of illusions has perpetually perplexed mankind, in a similar manner the Gospel portrays mankind as dwelling in what is called the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).   Most people who read the Gospels skip over where Jesus teaches the people only in the enigma of parables (see In The House - Taught In Parables) -- portraying the people as being dull of hearing, with eyes that do not see, and hearts that cannot comprehend anything beyond what is superficial and lacking in depth of understanding.    Yet, modern Bible readers mechanically skip over this warning without ever asking the reason why the people who are portrayed as either "without", or "outside", as being incapable of comprehending with any depth of reason and intellect?   And because the modern bible reader never poses this question of primary importance, the modern reader remains totally disenfranchised from the true meaning of the scriptures.    Why?   Because physical organic consciousness and man's "natural" condition of mind is embryonic -- and like a seed, must be evolved and matured with the proper nourishing impressions that will bring about a balanced development and Wholeness -- and this necessary development beyond the embryonic physical limitations and condition of mind which Paul portrayed as the "natural" mind of man, can only be accomplished through the process of expanding and evolving the mind from its seed-state which was portrayed by Jesus as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), into a mature condition that is portrayed in the Gospels as Wholeness.    Which is why Paul warned that even the congregation of believers who he personally taught -- a congregation of believers who Paul portrays as having been "...enriched in every way -- in all your speaking and in all your knowledge -- because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed” (1 Cor 1:4-7 NIV) -- were yet too immature in their level of development and condition of mind, to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom.   And in confirmation of this fact, in the second chapter of the very same Epistle Paul warns these believers who have been given all knowledge and testimony of Christ: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).    Paul then goes on and warns these believers of a natural mind who were baptized and dedicated to Christ: “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 NAS).   Thus, these believers could only be taught the doctrine of Jesus Christ and him crucified (1 Cor 2:2), because they were not yet spiritual men -- but rather, they were men of flesh and still very much “babes in Christ”.   Paul then explains that: “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able” (1 Cor 3:2 NAS).   What should be troubling to the modern believer is that Paul openly admits that the baptized and confirmed Christians at Corinth -- people who had accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior and received the gifts of the laying on of hands and speaking in tongues -- people who were not taught by preachers and priests, but the Apostle himself -- were not yet able to understand and comprehend what Paul referred to as the Mysteries of the Gospel of God.

To skip over the warning of Paul that the congregation of believers who he had himself taught, baptized and confirmed, would reject the spiritual meaning of the Gospel as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery Of The Gospel), remains one of the greatest absurdities of the Church that remains in its forefront of spiritual failure.  With respect to the question as to why the people who are portrayed as either "without", or "outside", are incapable of comprehending the True Gospel Teachings with any depth of reason and intellect?    Paul warns that the entry-level acts of baptism, confirmation and turning to Christ, is not enough to comprehend the Spiritual Meaning of the Gospel.   And, what modern Christians all fail to recognize is the fact that what Jesus is portraying with respect to the people's inability to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom, is the effects of  the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) that continues to plague them, even though they have begun their journey in TheWay by embracing the entry-level teachings that Paul portrays as the "traditions" of Christ!   And because all that organic man does see with his limited vision and understanding, is the shadow-world that is portrayed in the analogy of the illusions of  Plato's Cave.   And this is why the Gospel of Thomas states: "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you".

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

Christians maintain that they are saved by faith totally apart from their actions and works -- and their salvation is guaranteed from the moment they accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.   But is this the original teachings of Jesus?   The Flawed Doctrine Of Perpetual Redemption totally ignores the many statements by Paul where he warns: "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).   Why did Paul make such a statement?   Because the original Gospel teachings in their original form was one of spiritual transformation -- a process that would evolve the mind of the seeker/disciple from their embryonic condition, to that of spiritual maturity and Wholeness -- and those who reject these teachings and fall back into the thinking and lifestyle of this world -- who willfully sin after coming to the knowledge of the Gospel message -- are not only unbelievers and apostates to the teachings of the Gospels, but in Paul's words these counterfeit believers crucify the Son of God afresh -- and, in total opposition to what is preached in the modern Churches, Paul warns that "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."   These, and other such spiritual concepts, were totally unacceptable to the fourth century heathen Church of Rome -- and while these few passages continue to exist, the scriptures were corrupted (see http://BibleCorruption.com ) in order to make the Gospels support the doctrines of a series of Roman Emperors who ruled over the Church from the fourth century onward.     That the Church has abandoned the original teachings of Jesus -- to the degree that when it is proven that the fourth century Church even edited and corrupted the very words of God spoken to man (see http://TheTenWords.com ) -- means that until the Church itself repents of this great sin against the Holy Spirit, they will remain under a cloud of ignorance in an exiled state in a Spiritual Diaspora.   What does the Apostle of faith say?   To the Romans he warns: "Do not be arrogant, but be afraid.  For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.  Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off" (Rom 11:20-22 NIV).    Because the Christians entered into a covenant with Pagan Rome -- installing the emperor as the head of the Church -- and in a state of absolute arrogance, hunted down and murdered all sincere spiritual Christians and original Ebionite Nazirenes who did not accept the religious doctrines of the emperor -- even editing and corrupting the very words of God spoken to mankind -- the Church has not only been "cut off" -- but the Christians themselves dwell in a Spiritual Diaspora under the cloud of spiritual ignorance. 

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

  The Fifth Fatal Mistake - The Spiritual Diaspora - Confrontation Of Manmade Dogma Against Spiritual Truth: When Paul portrayed the literal written text of the scriptures as "...Jewish fables", he then added not to heed the "...commandments of men who turn away from the truth" (Titus 1:14).   With respect to not heeding the "...commandments of men", the Church has never understood why Paul condemned and rejected all opinions with respect to the interpretation of the scriptures -- as seen in his statement: "But avoid stupid controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels over the law, for they are unprofitable and futile. As for a man who is factious, after admonishing him once or twice, have nothing more to do with him, knowing that such a person is perverted and sinful; he is self-condemned" (Titus 3:9-11 RSV).   Why?   Because as Paul states (see above), it is impossible to ascertain the true meaning of the Spiritual Gospel through the study of the letter of the written text which Paul portrays as "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).   It is therefore important to understand that the word that is translated "factious", appears no where else in the New Testament.   And because the Church disregarded this statement of warning, and permitted itself to become embroiled in divisions, sects and factions which were based upon man's opinions, the Church exiled itself into a Spiritual Diaspora from which it has yet to emerge.   And when properly understood, this word that appears no where else in the Bible, must be properly interpreted "human opinion"!!!   If, as Paul warns, (1) the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel is inconceivable to the "natural" mind of man; (2) that (see above) if the baptized and committed believers were to be exposed to even the concepts of the spiritual meaning of the Gospel, they would reject these higher concepts as "foolishness"; (3) and that it is even "unlawful" to reveal to those who Paul portrays as "babes in Christ" these spiritual teachings and concepts that the faith-based Christians will reject; (4) then it must be recognized that this body of inconceivable and un-utterable spiritual truths are not written literally in the text of the scriptures where they could be read by these same immature "babes in Christ"; (5) which is why Paul condemns anyone who even promotes a "human opinion" of the meaning of the scriptures; (6) because as the Disciple Peter taught, the scriptures are designed to speak to each man's condition, and because of the Laws and the effect of what is allegorically portrayed as the Tower of Babel Syndrome, each person reading the scriptures is supposed to see a different doctrine (see The Books With The Power To Deceive); (7) and the original objective and purpose of the Gospel message was to enable the seeker/disciple to open the inner "narrow strait gate" and gain entrance to the Kingdom, and learn directly from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet.      

When the Spiritual Christians who were portrayed as Gnostic heretics said that there existed a body of esoteric knowledge that could not be received by those who portrayed themselves as Orthodox Christians, the Spiritual Christians were merely confirming the above words of Paul.   And that fallen segment of the Church which called itself Orthodox -- a body of believers who remained immature and carnal in their understanding, and were bound and shackled by manmade dogma that spiritually disenfranchised them from gaining entrance into the Inner Kingdom and learning directly from the One Teacher that Jesus said to seek out -- were in fact the sectarian heretics who Paul commanded to reject as being turned out of TheWay.       

The above Spiritual Reality that the Orthodox Congregation of Christians could never come to terms with, is in every way embodied in the statement of the Apostle Peter as quoted in the Homilies of his disciple Clement where he warns about manmade dogmatic interpretations of the written letter of the scriptures: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without". (see The Spiritual Disenfranchisement Of The Mind).    And in the same way that present-day Christianity is a religion of innumerable teachers and almost countless sects and factions, the reality of these words are totally incomprehensible to the modern Church.   Yet, these words are not only representative of the very core foundation of the Gospel teachings, but they are representative of the original objectives of the New Covenant.  

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

The people of this world dwell in a mass of confusion -- limited by the effects of the Tower Of Babel Syndrome -- is representative of the effects of the Outer Darkness which causes organic man to perceive from a very fragmentary perception and limited understanding that inhibits his cognitive vision and comprehension.   As demonstrated at the subheading The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind, the original Gospel purpose and objectives was to bring about the process that would mature and enlighten the mind of the seeker/disciple of TheWay.   But since the vast majority of mankind dwells in what the Gospel portrays as various mental-prisons (see The Prison) -- and in their failure to understand the Laws and the Higher Purpose of life in this realm as God's Divine SchoolHouse (see http://DivineStrategery.com) -- they remain shackled to their little world of illusions and delusions, and can only make progress at a virtual snails pace.   One of the secrets to breaking the shackles of  The Prison, is to begin to live and embrace the Gospel teachings of the Sermon on the Mount -- and begin to properly apply what the Gospel portrays as the Key of Knowledge -- not only to the allegorical scriptures, but also the illusions that are allusions of this world (see  Plato's Cave ).   But since the vast majority of Christians have embraced the dogma of Martin Luther that they are exempt from the requirements of the Royal Law -- and they have embraced the Jesus-god of the Pagan Emperor Constantine -- they never actually begin to embrace and live out the concepts of the Sermon on the Mount -- living cultural lifestyles and thinking-mindsets that in every way is against the Pure Gospel Teachings.   Resulting in the reality that they remained shackled to their various self-imposed Prisons -- dwelling under the illusions of Plato's Cave -- remaining a mental infant that is spiritually barren in the Outer Darkness of mind and being.   Dwelling in the extreme Poverty portrayed in the Gospel of Thomas -- failing to fulfill the adage to Know Thyself.   And if you question the above, at the link on The Prison you will find the reality explored: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV). 

  The Sixth Fatal Mistake - Ignoring The Great Void Created By Man's Dogma: In light of the foregoing, for Christians to promote the idea that they can merely read the scriptures and ascertain the Word of God -- while ignoring the many warnings that directly conflict with this idea -- is perhaps the greatest folly known to man.   To create a theology based upon a human interpretation of the written word that Paul portrays as "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14) -- demanding what Paul states is the incomprehensible Mysteries of God to be expressed within the limitation of embryonic human words and thoughts, is arguably the greatest human absurdity known to man.    And yet, the modern Christian Church has permitted itself to be founded upon this grave folly and absurdity. 

Why has the Church permitted itself to become immersed in this gravest absurdity and denial of Gospel teachings and facts?   Because it is the victim of what has come to be known as Stockholm Syndrome -- and after being ravished and robbed of its spiritual core and essence by a series of pagan emperors who literally forced their dogma upon the Church, this same body of manmade dogma has rendered the Church spiritually impotent and unable to escape the very dogmatic shackles that enslave the Christian world in a self-exiled Spiritual Diaspora.   

In total conflict with the manmade pagan dogma of the Church, the scriptures were never composed so as to convey and teach about the Mysteries of the Soul of man and the Kingdom of God -- but rather, the scriptures are themselves a macrocosmic parable that contains within them microcosmic parables designed to convey to each reader only that level of truth in direct accord with their own condition of mind -- and when the Key of Knowledge is properly applied, what is allegorically conveyed to the seeker/disciple is the Forces and Laws of Mind and Consciousness that the individual must prevail over in pursuit of gaining entrance to the Inner Kingdom which Jesus declared that each of the lost prodigal sons must return to -- as the seeker/disciple fulfills the Gospel Objectives, and has undergone the necessary transformation of self from that of an embryonic seed-self, to a state of Spiritual Wholeness and Completion.   And that there is only One Teacher (see True Prophet) that Jesus taught to seek out, MUST be the True Christian's sole Source of Instruction -- and this evolved condition can only be brought about by picking up one's own cross, travailing in TheWay, and living the necessary Consecrated Life in word, thought, desire and deed that transforms the physical body and mind into The Final Temple.     

Allegorically, when the Key of Knowledge is properly applied to the Torah/Old Testament, what is being presented beneath the garb of the written word of the text, is the necessary esoteric knowledge to reform the physical body-mind into the Living Temple of the Most High.   In the words of Paul: "...as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to make the tabernacle. For He said, 'See that you make all things according to the pattern shown you on the mountain'" (Heb 8:5 NKJ) -- what is presented in the Torah/Old Testament is the knowledge of the Forces and Laws that must be prevailed over in the building of The Final Temple -- which enables the seeker/disciple as the High Priest of the Living Temple, to enter the Holy of Holies, dwell in the Kingdom while still living in the physical body-vessel, and learn directly from the True Prophet that Jesus taught to seek out.  Which is exactly what the historical man Jesus did in order to become the first of the prodigal son to return to the Kingdom -- i.e., the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus who were taught directly by him, held to the position that (quoting The Ten Words) Jesus "...was justified by fulfilling the Law.  He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).   When the Ebionite Nazirenes  make reference to the Law, this very much includes the Laws of Creation as portrayed in the words "...the designs/laws found throughout Nature and all of Creation".    That the historical man Jesus was a pattern for all of mankind because of his success in overcoming the Laws, is demonstrated in the words: "He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ..."   And this confirms this statement with respect to the true potential of all of mankind that Jesus taught, as demonstrated in the words of Hippolytus when he wrote that they believed that when anyone "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs" (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34 - see http://Ebionite.com ).   And this is why Jesus taught that he was our brother -- i.e., "Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17 NIV).

In the above I have demonstrated that the authors of the scriptures warned that "human thought" which is embryonic, is totally incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom.   And that because of these inherent organic limitations, it is impossible to write the Spiritual Truths of the Gospel in the words of man, so that he could read and understand what the authors of the scriptures warn in incomprehensible for "natural" organic man to comprehend.   So, then, if we pose the question: What, then, is the substance of the written words of the scriptures?   The Torah/Old Testament is an allegorical text that must be turned within self using the Key of Knowledge, which inner body of concealed esoteric knowledge instructs the seeker/disciple how to build  The Final Temple in the transformation of their own body/mind and being.  

  The Seventh Fatal Mistake - The Throwing Away Of The Key Of Knowledge: While the Christians, like the Jews before them who threw away the Key of Knowledge, look for the Kingdom to come outwardly upon the earth, the Gospel itself states that the Kingdom will never come upon the earth, because it is within you -- and it is therein that you must seek it: "And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, See here! or, see there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21).   If it is true and the Kingdom is within you, then the question that Christians should be asking, is how must it be entered?   The answer is the proper application of the Key of Knowledge by turning the scriptures within your own mind and being -- i.e., "How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering" (Luke 11:52).  Thus, in understanding these words spoken to the Pharisees, the questions must be asked: How did the Pharisees and Jewish authorities "...hide the key to knowledge from the people"?   Why did Jesus condemn the leaders of the Jews for failing to enter the Kingdom themselves? -- i.e., "...You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves"!   And how did the religious leaders of the Jews "...prevent others from entering?"   That the primary objective of the Gospel is to prepare and enable the seeker/disciple to enter the Kingdom, is further demonstrated in Jesus' condemnation of the blind religious leaders as seen in the words: "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to" (Matt 23:13 NIV).  Which means that the Kingdom of God is not something that will come is we wait for it -- but rather, it is a reality which man must seek and find -- within himself.   

Taking the above one step further, I fully realize that many Bible translations simply refuse to interpret Luke 17:21 correctly.   In analysis of this great biblical controversy, Robertson’s Word Pictures of the New Testament writes: “What Jesus says to the Pharisees is that they, as others, are to look for the kingdom of God within themselves, not in outward displays and supernatural manifestations. It is not a localized display ‘Here’ or ‘There.’ It is in this sense that in Luke 11:20 Jesus spoke of the kingdom of God as ‘come upon you,’ speaking to Pharisees”.   The article then goes on to add that the only other instance of the Greek word “entos” being used in the New Testament, is at Matthew 23:26, where the Pharisees are told to clean “the inside of the cup”.   Moreover, the Wescott and Hort Greek text, as well as most other authorities, render the translation of this word: “inside of you is”.   Which means that the original teachings of TheWay was a system whereby the seeker/disciple takes the yoke of Messiah/Christ upon themselves -- picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay -- which enables the disciple to enter through the "narrow gate" and dwell in the Kingdom, while still physically alive in the body -- overcoming the division of heaven and earth within the person -- i.e., the Lord commanded his followers to "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NIV).    Because the Church threw away the Key of Knowledge, and adopted pagan dogmatic doctrines of belief, the Christian world sits idly complacent on the side of the "broad-way  ...that leads to destruction" -- giving lip service and worshiping their brother, that they must themselves imitate, in order to enter into Life.    And it was for this reason that the Adam Clark Commentary stated that if the original Gospel portrayal of the historical man Jesus was correct, that "...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless"!!! (see The Ten Words).   
The True Reality Of The Scriptures: While the scriptures when used for their intended purpose as the Key of Knowledge -- and this is especially true of the Gospels -- are the most important writings available to mankind in his quest for Knowledge and the Ultimate Answers to all of Life -- the fact that manmade pagan dogma was forced on the Church by the sword of Roman Emperors, and in its present spiritually defiled condition has rendered the Church spiritually impotent -- is the purpose of this writing is to bring about the goal of restoring the Gospel teachings of Jesus and TheWay to their former place of Anointed Honor.   The Didache states:
There are two ways, one of life and one of death -- the way of this world leads the person down the "broad-way of self-destruction" -- as does also manmade dogma -- but, when the scriptures are used in accord with their original intention and objectives as the Key of Knowledge, they are able to open the inner "narrow strait gate" that provides entrance for the prodigal son and daughter to return to the Kingdom.   What can be called The Ten Minute Test conclusively demonstrates that the whole of modern Church dogma is condemned and rejected in the Bible as Spiritual Apostasy!!!   What is known as The Ten Words demonstrates conclusively that the original Ebionite Nazirene Disciples of Jesus were correct -- that the Gospel was edited by the later Church of Rome to support the dogma that Jesus was the rebirth of the Mithraic sun-god -- and that the Original Gospel confirms that Jesus was a true holy man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism in the Jordan when the Father said the words: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee" (see The Ten Words ).    And that the Christian world has been cast into a Spiritual Disapora, because they have thrown way the Key of Knowledge in the manner of the Pharisees before them, they have adopted Roman Pagan dogma -- and even though their primary doctrines of belief are openly condemned as spiritual apostasy in the very New Testament scriptures they use (see The Ten Minute Test ), in their spiritual complacency they make no effort to pick up their own cross and travail in TheWay as Jesus commanded, and prove the Truth within them by using the Key of Knowledge to gain entrance to the inner Kingdom!!!

In a recent forum discussion (see Nazirene Disciple Forum) I was asked the question as to why most people don't remember their past lives.   My answer that I will present in the below, will be in the form of two different responses to the question?   First, as a preface to my below explanation, it is important for the reader to be cognizant of the fact that the biblical authors warned that it is virtually impossible for the mind of "natural" organic man to comprehend his own higher soul and spiritual reality -- as detailed in the Prologue Of The Key Of Knowledge -- and to their own spiritual undoing, Christians perpetually ignore this warning.    Secondly, it is easily demonstrated that while Jesus taught the reality of the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes (see Christian Reincarnation), he did not teach reincarnation from an Eastern or New Age perspective -- which perspective is a counterfeit doctrine of belief.   And if this appears paradoxical and confusing -- i.e., the question as to how can the soul evolve over the course of many lifetimes, and yet, the Eastern New Age belief in reincarnation is counterfeit -- the error with respect to reincarnation is based upon a lack of self-knowledge and a failure to understand the ancient adage to Know Thyself.   Thirdly, that a Roman Emperor outlawed the teachings on the pre-existent soul (see Outlawed) -- literally forcing the Church to accept his dogmatic decree -- does not in any manner negate the Truth.   But with this important original teaching removed, what it does do with respect to the search for Truth within the body of Christian believers, is to render them spiritually impotent.   Fourth, the person you are in this world is not your true self (see The Divine Counterpart) -- but rather, an embryonic image of your higher soul-self that has been generated into the body you are presently using as a vehicle in this world with the objective of mental and spiritual developmental evolution -- as presented at SoulSelf.org .   Now, in answer to the question?

Many people are NOT supposed to see the past lives that their higher soul-self has lived -- lives they have no memory of, because from one paradoxical perspective, they never lived before -- and they came into existence at conception in this present life (see Reincarnation - A Counterfeit Doctrine).   When Paul wrote that the Christians who he personally taught would reject the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom as utter "foolishness" -- and he further warned that man's higher reality is beyond the perception and understanding of the organic (physical) mind of man (see Mysteries Of The Gospel) -- then those who attempt to ignore this warning, do so to their own detriment and demise.   The paradoxical key that alienates man from his own true reality is seen in the almost incomprehensible reality that you are not your soul or true self -- that part of you that has existed since the dawn of time as a direct expression of Creator-God -- and as a unique expression of your higher soul-self, you came into existence at conception in this present lifetime.   In (above) The Third Fatal Mistake it is presented that the Apostle Paul warned that the very congregation of Christians who he personally taught, were entry-level, and were yet too carnal to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Inner Kingdom of God.   Part of the reason is because man in his "natural" organic condition of mind has great difficulty in comprehending his own relationship of himself as the person he is in this world, with his pre-existent eternal higher soul-self that does not incarnate into the body -- but dwells in what can be portrayed as the Realm of Souls.   Thus, the self you are in this world has been portrayed as the false-self, the ego-self, the temporal-self -- and it is this self that Jesus taught you must lose, in order to inherit the Life of your soul. 

Why can't your higher soul-self incarnate into the body?   Because your true self exists across the spectrum of a great multitude of dimensions that can be portrayed as the Great Mansion of the Soul -- and there is simply no means to manifest the multi-dimensional soul into the three-dimensions of your physical body-vessel.   Which means that to first connect and then manifest your true self in the body, the body itself must undergo the necessary spiritual and alchemical process of Transformation that is portrayed as "spiritual maturity" by the Gospel authors -- a process that is portrayed as the Heightening And Expansion Of Mind And Being.  

Paradoxically, while it is true that the person you are in this life has never existed prior to conception in your mother's womb, it is also true that you are an embryonic image of your true self that is eternal, and has existed since the dawn of time (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image).    What this means is that because your soul and true self cannot incarnate into the body-vessel because of the natural organic limitation of three-dimensions, the higher soul-self is able to generate an Embryonic Soul-Image that has the innate potential to expand and evolve to the degree that the soul-self is able to directly connect and even manifest in the body by bringing about the next stage of Soul-Birth.   Therefore, what is equally important is to understand why approximately 20% of the people are born with the ability to recall the past lives that their soul-self has lived -- why others can develop the ability -- why some people can easily be regressed into recalling these past lives through various age-regression techniques -- while others simply do not have the ability -- and why it can be said that this knowledge is blocked in others?   Contrary to the equal means the same philosophy of the Archons of Political Correctness, there is a very good reason why we are all not only born different -- but why we see the world from a multitude of opposite and often conflicting perceptions and understanding?   Thus, the question that is raised: If our souls have all lived a great multitude of previous lifetimes, then why can only a percentage of the population see these previous lifetimes?   

From a biblical perspective: When Jesus taught the people using the enigma of parables that allegorically concealed what he called the Sacred Secrets of the Kingdom, his disciples who had received all truths revealed to them plainly, asked him: Why do you teach them with parables?   What they were asking Jesus is why he did not speak plainly to them?   And thus, Jesus answered his disciples and explained: “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand” (Mark 4:11-12 KJV).   Those who are "without", are those who dwell in what Jesus called the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- and because they dwell "without [in the] outer darkness", they are incapable of perceiving and understanding anything beyond the base vibratory frequencies of the earth.    The disciples, on the other hand, had abandoned the ways of this world, and were able to spiritually receive the Knowledge of the Sacred Secrets of the Kingdom.    Instead of the word "mystery", the NIV Bible translates this word the "secret" of the Kingdom of God -- i.e., "The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!'" (Mark 4:11-12 NIV).

What does it mean to "turn"?  From the perspective of the prodigal son, it is to turn away from the Far Country, and return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination (see GateOfEden.com).   In the Gospel accounts, particular attention and importance is placed upon Children, who are often referred to as the “little ones”.   It is warned that if we do not “turn about”, and become as little children, we cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven (Mt 18:3; 19:14).  In Mark 10:24 Jesus refers to his disciples as children when he explains: “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God” (NIV).    The Gospel of Thomas saying 22 has the disciples asking Jesus: "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"   To which Jesus responded: "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female...".    Therefore, unless you understand and bring about the merge and marriage of opposites within you, it will remain impossible for you to bring about the next stage of birth that brings about the necessary Oneness with your higher soul-self -- and ultimately with the Indwelling Logos and God.  

Jesus did not -- and could not -- speak openly to those who were portrayed as being "without [in the] outer darkness".  Why?  Because, the "outer darkness" is this three-dimensional realm that can be thought of as a mental-womb intended to develop and bring about the next stage in the birth process -- and it therefore would have been impossible for them to comprehend anything beyond the most mundane of earthly perceptions of self and life.   In the same way that we were initially conceived within the womb of our physical mothers -- where we were supplied all the nourishment necessary to evolve through the fetal stages and our birth into this world -- when the initial womb of our mother's because insufficient for our progress beyond the initial stages of development, we were then born into what can be portrayed as the next-level of womb where our development can continue.   Therefore, one of the conceptual-realities that Paul had great difficulty in conveying to the entry-level Christians, is the reality that this world is the womb of mother-earth -- that each of us can be portrayed as a Cosmic Ovum Or Sperm -- and that if we understand the Natural Laws of Creation and the purpose of this world, that our earthly-mother will supply all that we need to achieve the next stage of the four-fold process of birth -- the final stage of which is allegorically portrayed in the Gospel accounts of the crucifixion.    Because we lack the necessary mental-development to comprehend this higher reality, it was therefore impossible for the biblical authors to write even the next level above elementary truths literally. 

The folly of mankind which immerses him in the profound state of ignorance which Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), has its parallels in the analogy of Plato's Cave -- the reality of which is borne out of man's assumption that he is whole, complete, and his true self.   Thus, the Gospel of Thomas declares: "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world".   How can the man who Knows Thyself, be superior to the world?   Modern man who has built his thinking upon a defective foundational paradigm of thinking, can't even begin to answer this question.   And this ignorance of man's true self which the Thomas Gospel portrays as intellectual and spiritual poverty, is one of the primary reasons he does not understand the higher reality of the soul and the great many lifetimes that the soul has previously lived in lives such as the one he is living at present.   

The ability to recall the past lives that our higher soul-self has lived is drawn from certain areas of the mind.   Which means that if we fail to develop this area of the mind, then it will remain impossible for us to develop the ability to perceive the previous lives that our higher soul-self has lived.   Again, the answer can be found in the above statements where Jesus explained to his disciples why he only spoke in parables to the common people:  “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand” (Mark 4:11-12 KJV).   Those who are "without", are those who dwell in what Jesus called the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- and because they dwell "without [in the] outer darkness", they are incapable of perceiving and understanding anything beyond the base vibratory frequencies of the earth.    That there is a great deal more than what man is able to see with his physical senses is also presented in the Gospel of Thomas which states: "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you".  Which is why Paul stated: "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Cor 4:18 KJV).   How, then, do you "...look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen"?  This ability has to be developed by accessing those latent spheres of mind that possess this ability to look inwardly -- i.e., In The House. 

To look inwardly -- i.e., In The House -- we have to develop and begin to access the (feminine) intuitive spheres of mind (see Intuitive vs Linear) -- which when unbalanced and undeveloped, can be like opening Pandora's Box -- often manking no sense to the (male) outward looking linear spheres of mind.   Thus the saying: Show me your strength, and I'll show you your weakness.   While in the majority of cases of recall the intuitive spheres of mind have the ability to perceive glimpses of truth that the linear spheres of mind are often blind to, the intuitive does not get a full picture -- and often the beginning, the end, and the greater impact of one's actions is beyond the perception of the intuitive.   But when you add to this the fact that in the linear-minded culture in which we live, that the true potential of the intuitive spheres of mind are not only unknown -- but often negated -- it remains true that even in its largely culturally suppressed and undeveloped state, the intuitive is still able to access nuggets of truth that is beyond the vision scope of the linear.

Mystics have long warned mankind that the reality of this world of appearances is not at all what is seems to be through the perception of man's physical eyes and senses -- i.e., that there is a great deal more that man's senses and perception cannot detect or even imagine.   And this same enigma of the limits of man's physical senses was noted by Albert Einstein who concluded with respect to man's dilemma when he stated: "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."    What, then, is this intuitive gift?

Man's search for truth and the answers to the virtually countless dilemmas of life can be defined from the perspective of two very opposite schools of thought -- i.e., (1) that man must study and learn the theories and opinions of other men who are accepted as authorities; and (2) that each person possesses an innate connection to an Inner Source of Truth that he must learn and acquire the ability to tap into.    The first paradigm of thinking is the foundation of man's modern-day religions, philosophical and systems of traditional education where the acquisition of knowledge and truth is received from others perceived to be knowledgeable teachers -- while the second paradigm of thinking remains an enigma that is not readily understood.  

When properly understood, the authors of the scriptures were themselves Enlightened Mystics who had tapped into this Inner Source of Knowledge -- and the original intent of what is today known as the New Testament, was intended to guide and enable the seeker to know the Truth of all things by virtue of Direct Revelation from this Inner Source.   What is today known as Christianity came into being in order to free men from the shackles of Mystery religions such as Judaism, enabling them to tap into the Source of all Truth and “prove all things…” (1 Thes 5:21 KJV).   When Christianity became corrupted by the dogma of Roman Emperors  -- these important spiritual teachings were rendered virtually worthless to fulfill the Gospels intended purpose, objectives and spiritual goals.  

One of the earliest of Christian writings known as the Didache makes the declaration of The Two Ways -- i.e., "There are Two Ways, One of Life, the other of Death..." -- and this formula can be applied to all realities of life.   If it is true that mankind possesses the innate ability to tap into an inner source of knowledge and truth, then when we teach a person through rote programming, we inhibit that person's ability to tap into that inner source of knowledge -- resulting in the flat-lining of the person's ability to truly learn and mentally evolve to his ultimate potential.    In the words of Jean Piaget: “When you teach a child something you take away forever his chance of discovering it for himself” -- and only when it is understood that the inner journey to true learning can only be accomplished through discovery, can we begin to comprehend how the paradigm of "without" looking religion, "without" philosophy and externally learned education is the very embodiment of man's ultimate failure and ignorance.     In the words of Margaret Mead: “My grandmother wanted me to get a good education, so she kept me as far away from schools as possible.”    But enlightenment remains elusive and virtually impossible, so long as organic man limits himself to the three-dimensional mindset and thinking that lacks the necessary maturity to comprehend even his own higher soul-reality (see SoulSelf.org).   Thus, in not Knowing Self, the words of Albert Einstein become relevant: “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

In view of the fact that our culture neither understands the intuitive spheres of mind -- neither do they understand the Source of knowledge that the intuitive spheres of mind has the potential to tap into -- mankind has for all intent and purposes shackled himself to a condition of profound self-imposed ignorance with respect to a higher reality that he does not at all understand.   In a comparison to the knowledge and understanding from "without", to that which can be attained In The House -- and especially when the Kingdom comes within the mind and being of the seeker/disciple, Paul states: "For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect; but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood" (1 Cor 13:9-13 RSV).   The reference to "...seeing in a mirror dimly", is a portrayal of man's outward vision in the "outer darkness" of this world of reflective reality that is not understood.    The term  "...face to face", is when one has succeeded in completing the inward journey into the Kingdom, and one is able to then learn "...face to face" with the True Prophet/Logos/Son of God.    The ability to recall the previous lives that one's soul has lived, comes to the seeker/disciple as leaves growing on a healthy tree that bears spiritual fruit (see The Sower And The Seed).  The Mystic visionary has long warned mankind, is that because of the shackles imposed upon him by his traditional religious, philosophical, cultural and educational institutions which "...have created a society that honors the [rational] servant and has forgotten [and suppressed the development of] the [intuitive] gift" -- thus, blinding mankind to the underlying cause of all that man sees and experiences in this world, man remains perpetually lost and blind in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- or what the philosopher portrayed in the analogy of the illusions of Plato's Cave (see Cave) .  

That the whole of our culture is based exclusively upon the very limited vision of the linear-rational mind which strives to overpower and inhibit the development of the intuitive gift, is why the Apostle Paul warned "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world..." (Col 2:8 NIV).   Thus, where the biblical authors portray what they call the "testimony" of Christ as the entry-level language of allegorical symbols that are intended to act as a catalyst in the beginning development of the entry-level believing Christian, the objective is to bring about the necessary maturity and transformation in the development of the latent intuitive spheres of mind, that enables the seeker/disciple of TheWay to fulfill the higher spiritual objectives of the Gospel -- as presented in the above words of the Britannica: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.   That this spiritual objective and body of esoteric teachings became lost when the Church came under the dominion of Pagan Rome -- which was the primary reason why our Constitutional Framers inhibited the government from interfering in the practice of religion -- means that the spiritual objective of the practice of religion is in the development of the seeker/disciple to utilize those higher intuitive areas of the mind that is able to connect with the inner transcendent -- i.e., "...contact with the transcendent [that was] part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.    Which means that the true objective of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay is "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” through the development of the intuitive centers of the mind which Einstein correctly portrays as "...a sacred gift".

The very fact that it was the objective of the original teachings associated with the historical man Jesus known as TheWay, to bring about this condition of enlightenment about in the life of the individual Christian believer, means that there exists the means to bring this enlightened reality of mind about.   Which means that the question then becomes not if -- but rather, how to bring this "...heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” about in the life of the believer as he progresses down the path of TheWay?   Certainly not through the further development of the mind through the linear rational servant.   In the picture at the right -- "the frontispiece to her translation of Newton, Émilie du Châtelet appears as Voltaire's muse, reflecting Newton's heavenly insights down to Voltaire" (see Voltair) -- what is personified in the term muse, is always representative of a feminine source of wisdom -- and is very much an allegorical personification of the intuitive aspects of one's own mind that provides insight and access to the higher source of knowledge and wisdom within one's self.   In the image of the three muses at the left, in Greek writings these would be representative of the personification of the intuitive aspects of mind which must be developed in order to begin to tap into and access man's inner Source of Mind and Being.   And in this respect such biblical figures as Mary Magdalene is not the personification of an historical person -- but rather, the purification, development and raising up of the (feminine) intuitive aspects of the disciples own mind.    In the Gospels associated with Mary Magdalene it is written: “She speaks to the other disciples about Jesus and what she’s seen, and Peter says, ‘I don’t believe the Lord said these things. These are certainly strange ideas.’ And she says, ‘Well, do you think I made them up? Do you think I’m lying about the Lord?’ ”   In this allegorical representation, the linear-rational aspect of mind is represented in Peter's inability to comprehend what the feminine-intuitive as represented in the allegorical personification of Mary Magdalene reveals.   And since these intuitive visions, impressions and wisdom does not support the linear reasoning of the masculine vision of this world and Creation, in most people they are rejected. 

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

In the same way that Peter as representing the (male) linear-rational spheres of mind, states of the intuitive visions and wisdom of Mary Magdalene:  "...These are certainly strange ideas", it is a fact that it is the lopsided development of what Einstein portrayed as the linear rational servant that inhibits the development of the intuitive gift -- i.e., as seen in Einstein's statement that “The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”     Without the balanced development of the intuitive, the linear rational which only senses outwardly, arrives as a point where it becomes what can be portrayed as flat-lined -- which in turn inhibits the further development of the linear rational servant from itself maturing beyond organic limitations.   And herein lies the great obstacle to human development that linear-intellectuals don't at all understand -- i.e., the reality that the linear programming of the mind which is the agenda of our educational systems -- including the reading of books and traditional study -- only serves to inhibit the development of the intuitive spheres of mind -- and it is the lack of balance between the inward looking intuitive and the outward looking linear-rational that inhibits the development of the mind beyond a certain very shallow organic physical level of maturity.  

The problem is seen in the fact that the linear rational servant can only look outwardly -- and not only remains totally ignorant of an inner reality that it is blind to -- but it demands that all of mankind ignore and even reject the higher causal reality that can only be sensed and understood through the development of the intuitive centers of mind.   Like the tip of the proverbial iceberg, what is observed protruding out of the water is very small in relation to the immense body of ice that is beyond man's normal scope of vision lying beneath the water line.   And because our culture and linear learning environment actually inhibits the development of the intuitive, it remains atrophied and latently embryonic.   This is seen in the fact that when the leaders of the Jews (Pharisees) asked Jesus when the Kingdom of God would come upon the earth in the manner that they believed it would, he told them that it would never come upon the earth so as to be seen with their eyes (that look outwardly), because the Kingdom already exists within them (see http://GateOfEden.com ) -- and it is accessed through the development of the intuitive spheres of mind that are positioned to look inwardly -- which then must be balanced with the outward looking rational linear.

In the parable of the prodigal son who is subject to the limited perception and understanding of what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), man dwells in a world of illusions (see Plato's Cave) that are an allusion of mind impressed into the allegorical images of nature.   In her book, The Gospel of Mary of Magdala: Jesus and the First Woman Apostle, author Karen L. King writes: "…the Gospel of Mary communicates a vision that the world is passing away, not toward a new creation or a new world order, but toward the dissolution of an illusory chaos of suffering, death, and illegitimate domination. The Saviour has come so that each soul might discover its own true spiritual nature, its ‘root’ in the Good, and return to the place of eternal rest beyond the constraints of time, matter, and false morality."    The error of Karen King is typical, in that in her failure to properly apply the Key of Knowledge, she perceives Mary Magdalene as a flesh and blood woman, not understanding that Mary is representative of the intuitive spheres of mind that must be evolved and raised up, in order to tap into and connect with man's inner Source of Being -- and ultimately the True Prophet.

In order to develop a fuller picture, the intuitive must be both developed and brought into balance with the linear, and then the two must be evolved up into the higher spheres that are not naturally supported by the physical body-senses and organic physical mind.   And what this means from the perspective of those who cannot recall past lives, is that if such a person had the ability to tap into their intuitive and see their soul's previous lifetimes, they could not possess the linear attributes of mind that they presently do -- and thus, they would not be in a position to develop those linear attributes of mind -- or, take part in a union of opposites that would have the potential of developing the higher third-force.    Each of us is not only different -- possessing different strengths and abilities -- but these differences are extremely important for us to begin to understand, if we are to grasp the more enlightened perception of the life that we are living.

   The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind: When the American Constitutional Framers acknowledged The Laws Of Nature And Nature's God, one of the elements of Natural Law is seen in the fact that the Laws MUST manifest and maintain WHOLENESS!!!   But what constitutes Wholeness?   While it can be said that an amoeba is whole or one, the same can also be said of man.   Yet, wholeness from the perspective of an amoeba, is very different than wholeness from the perspective of man whose mind is comprised of an infinite number of neurons and an associated field of virtually countless dendrites which monitor and control every aspect of our being -- some of which are only vaguely understood even today.   Thus, when wholeness is very simple as in the example of the amoeba, intelligence is virtually non-existent.   And while both the human and the amoeba both represent a single whole unit, wholeness from a human perspective is very complex -- more complex than is even understood by medical experts today -- but it is this very complexity of the mind that enables man to harness an intellect that cannot be achieved in the animal kingdom.

Holographically, the Laws of Nature must maintain balance across the spectrum of Mind that is manifest on a Cosmic scale (see The Enigma Of The Twelve - And The Tree Of Life).   At conception, each person begins their journey into life as a single-cell embryo -- i.e., a type of an amoeba with a greater potential.   But herein lies the problem: Since each person as a one cell embryo can only represent one single point of consciousness within the greater pattern of mind as portrayed in the Tree of Life -- then unless that person consciously intervenes in an endeavor to overcome their natural limitations, all that each person sees and perceives throughout their lives, is from the perspective of that single point of consciousness.   Since I have already demonstrated in the foregoing that many important original Gospel teachings were removed, let me set before the reader a quotation that has been preserved in what is known as The Gospel Of The Nazirenes where the great diversity of thought among men is explained in the words:  "The One truth has many sides, and one sees one side only, another, and some see more than others, according as it is given to them.  Behold this crystal; how the one light is manifest in twelve faces, yea four times twelve, and each face reflects one ray of light, and one regards one face, and another, another, but it is the one crystal, and the one light that shines in all."  

What is being stated is that while Truth exists on a higher spiritual plane -- in the same way that when Light is projected through a prism, it is seen as the seven colors which we see and observe in this world.   And those who understand the relationship of color and sound within the spectrum of the Law of Octaves, will recognize the use of the twelve segments of a Single Truth when manifest in this world.   With the problem being that while Higher Truths can exist on a Higher Plane of Existence, it is impossible to project Higher Truth into this three-dimensional physical world.   Therefore, the analogy is made as representing a Single Truth that is projected through a crystal, and "...how the one light is manifest in twelve faces".    But holographically, because each fragment retains the pattern of the whole, each of these fragments are themselves divided into twelve -- as represented in the words: "...yea four times twelve" -- which means that the perspective of what each person sees is further fragmented across the Spectrum of Laws that MUST maintain Wholeness.        

What is the ramifications?   If, you divide the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life across the spectrum of humanity in the outer world, then each person is representative of 1/144,000th of the whole.   Which means that each person who begins their existence as a one-celled human-amoeba, can only represent 1/144,000th of the Whole.   And when you take into account the three-dimensional aspects of this world in relation to The Divine Pattern Of Creation as represented in the Spiritual Doctrine of the Trinity -- and the reality that True Wholeness can only be achieved when the Three Exist At-One -- this reality opens a whole new dimension to the paradox of Wholeness.   What is not at all understood is that the soul of man is asexual -- i.e., but not asexual in the meaning of the absence of polarity in the negative sense -- but rather, the negation of the polarities through their evolved Fullness and Absolute Balance as portrayed in the 22nd saying of the Gospel of Thomas in the words: Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female...".     

The soul and true self of man which -- in its Natural Form is a Being of Light (see SoulSelf.org ) -- is a positive and absolute balance of male/female and the third-force Manifestation of Higher Mind and Being.    What this means is that while the higher soul-self can manifest in this elevated state of being which I portray as the Realm Of Souls because it is not limited to the three dimensions of this physical world, it is impossible for the soul to manifest in a one-cell human amoebic-embryo.   Whereby, when projected into this world, not only is the soul subject to the limitations of the Natural Laws which require Wholeness across the spectrum of the 144,000, but also divided across the gender-divide.   Which means that when you further divide the one cell embryo across gender lines, that makes each man or woman half of this apportionment.   Which is why in the above Gospel of Thomas teaching on when the Kingdom would come, not only must there be a positive-evolved balance of male/female within the Trinitarian Divine Pattern -- i.e., "...when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female..." -- but Jesus states that unless you achieve the next stages of birth through this process of Evolved-Oneness which is able to achieve the necessary Wholeness, you cannot bring about the state of  Wholeness within your mind and being that enables the person you are in this world to be united to your higher soul-self -- and ultimately, to the Indwelling Logos and Creator-God as a Fully Evolved Being of Light.    

When the biblical authors write and warn that man's higher soul-reality and the Kingdom is incomprehensible to the "natural" mind of organic man (see The Second Fatal Mistake), it is because Truth can only exist at a soul-level of mind and being where the twelve faces of the crystal are manifest in the One Truth -- and ultimately, at the Logos Level of Reality (see Logos).  What this means from a holographic perspective, is that in the same way that our physical bodies were formed from the joining and union of the sperm and ovum of our mother and father, when we were born into this world that was only the First Phase of Birth -- and having entered this world as male or female, we exist as a Cosmic Ovum And Sperm (see The Trinity And The Divine Pattern Of Creation).    And from the perspective of our un-manifested higher soul and spiritual reality, this realm can be portrayed as the mental-womb of Mother-God that is the necessary environment to bring about the next stage of birth which enables us to manifest out Eternal Soul-Self in the body-vessel -- as portrayed in another version of the above quotation from the Gospel of Thomas that has been preserved in the Second Epistle Of Clement where Jesus is quoted with respect to the teachings on the coming of the Kingdom in the words: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’” .  

A truly enlightened Spiritually Mature seeker who understood what is often portrayed as the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, would begin to grasp the reality that, BY DESIGN, there can never be unity in the outer world, because the Laws MUST maintain Wholeness -- and the primary cell that formed you as an embryo could only be imbued with 1/144,000th part of the Whole.   And since each of the twelve spheres of mind perceive and understand the world from a different and often opposite paradoxical perspective, then what you have is the embodiment of the allegorical Tower of Babel Syndrome that fragments the thinking and perception of all of mankind -- resulting in the great conflict of thought that we can easily observe in the world.   Thus, based upon this higher reality, if we pose the question: What makes you perceive and understand the world differently from others?   The vastly different perceptions are in fact hard-wired into each person's thinking -- each person possessing a piece of the enigmatic puzzle -- and together, making a whole.    

   The Solution To The Dilemma: One of the parables of the Kingdom in the Gospels is that of a merchant who searches and finds the Pearl of Great Price, and he goes and sells all his lesser pearls in order to purchase it.   But since the carnal mind of the readers fail to understand with any depth or fullness (see Prologue Of The Key Of Knowledge), they fail to recognize the fact that the key to acquiring the Pear of Great Price is to have collected a substantial number of lesser pearls that can then be sold in order to acquire the One Pearl.   And what this means is that each person possesses a lesser pearl -- i.e., a fragment of truth -- and by developing your power of empathy in conjunction with an understanding of the Natural Laws -- and then using the power of empathy in your interactions with your brothers and sisters as a type of catalyst to reflect their fragmented perception back to you -- you can then begin to expand your own mind, consciousness and being -- INWARDLY.

We can define empathy as the ability to suspend one's own self in the endeavor to project one's self into the life and thinking of another, in order to perceive and understand the world from their perspective.   And what this means is that while you may not agree with their perception of life because they are also representative of 1/144,000th of the whole, they do possess a fragment or lesser pearl that you must possess within yourself, in order to begin to achieve Wholeness within your own self -- which is accomplished by expanding your own mind, consciousness and being (see Expansion And Heightening Of Mind) beyond natural physical organic limitations.   But herein lies the problem -- i.e., empathy only works when you are able to suspend judgment -- as detailed in the Gospel -- because judgment is partisan and parochial, and is itself limited to a fragment of mind/whole.   Yet, while judgment is an extremely limiting factor, one of the elements that is absolutely necessary to the expansion of mind, is discernment.    

Without judgment, I can discern the vision and perception of life through the eyes of a homosexual, a whore, a thief, a liberal or conservative, a person of a certain philosophical or theological persuasion, as well as every other fragmented variety of human condition.   By suspending judgment, and empathetically inserting myself into the conditions of my brothers and sisters, I can not only see from their perspective -- but I can then use that person as a catalyst to interact with that part of myself that is in harmony with that other person.   And each time I am able to do this, I am in effect expanding my own mind, consciousness and being.   That does not mean that I agree with their very limited and fragmented assessment of life -- but rather, that by empathetically projecting myself into their mind and thinking, and using them as a reflective catalyst, I can collect one of the lesser pearls within myself -- which eventually can be exchanged for the Pearl of Great Price that is beyond natural organic human conception because of the limiting factor of the Natural Laws.  

Homosexuals claim that they were created homosexual -- and while many people may be in denial of this claim, it is fundamentally true (see Conditions Of Birth).  The question that should be asked is: Why has such a person been born homosexual in this present life?  In fact, modern science has about proven that each person is born hard-wired to the life that they are presently living.   Consider the interesting finding in the Publishers Weekly Review of the book entitled Hardwired Behavior: What Neuroscience Reveals about Morality:

Society's assumptions about free will and individual responsibility must be drastically revised in the light of scientific discoveries about the brain, argues this fascinating study. Drawing on a wealth of recent developments in neurobiology, genetics and brain imaging, Tancredi, a professor of psychiatry and a lawyer, examines new findings about the neurological structures and processes that underlie reasoning, emotions and decision-making. He applies these discoveries to such traditional moral concerns as violence, sexual infidelity, lying, gluttony and sloth, and even financial fraud and gambling. The striking results of this research, he notes, indicate that hormones, drugs, genetic abnormalities, injuries and traumatic experiences all have profound effects on brain structure and functioning, and hence on moral choices; indeed, some experiments imply that our actions are initiated by the unconscious brain before we are consciously aware of them, raising the possibility that our sense of moral agency is a retrospective "illusion." Tancredi supplements his rather dry exposition of the science with case studies from his clinical practice, including lengthy profiles of a sex-addicted patient and of a "biologically driven" serial killer, and closes by pondering the possibility and perils of a hypothetical Brave New World-style program of neurological intervention-complete with brain implants-to improve morality. Some will consider Tancredi's talk of the "empathetic" female brain and "systemizing" male brain and his chalking up of pedophilia to "an imbalance of the monoamine neurotransmitters" and homosexuality to "differences in neurohumeral activity during the prenatal phase" to be glibly reductionist, but many will find his well-researched overview of the new science of the brain a stimulating addition to the debate about human nature.

What this means is that your thinking -- and your manner of thought -- is solely dependent upon your Conditions Of Birth  -- orchestrated by (1) your Spiritual DNA based upon your soul's previous accomplishments; (2) where in the spectrum of the 1/144,000 you fall; (3) karmic loops that are carried from life to life; (4) and the debts you owe as portrayed in the reality of the words: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).    In the above example of the person who is born homosexual: While there is a biological cause which the book by Prof. Tancredi notes in his conclusion to "differences in neurohumeral activity during the prenatal phase", these differences are orchestrated by the foregoing four factors with respect to each person's Conditions Of Birth.    That each individual person is born into the life that they are about to live that has been orchestrated by the Natural Laws and the role on the stage of life that has been incorporated into their own curriculum and syllabus of learning, means that the choices we make in conjunction with what we accomplish with the opportunity of life, orchestrates the life that our soul-self will be born into in the future.          

What this means is that a liberal, is a liberal, because his thinking is hard-wired to that manner of perception and thinking -- as is a conservative.   Ultra-liberal Alan Combs is incapable of seeing the world from the perspective of Right-wing Sean Hannity -- and their perceptive thinking is hard-wired to opposite spheres of mind.    Which one is right?   It is not a question of right or wrong, because they both possess an important fragmented piece of the enigmatic puzzle -- which when combined with many other fragmented pieces, creates the whole that is maintained across the spectrum of human thought by the Natural Laws that control our lives.  

The Gospel message tells us not to judge our brothers and sisters, because judgment is predicated upon a perception of right and wrong.   Yet, the Gospel also requires a very high level of discernment.   The Gospel account of Jesus has him stating to the man: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).   Which means that what is portrayed as sin has dire consequences.   And to the woman caught in adultery Jesus stated: "...go and sin no more'" (John 8:2-11 NKJ).   Thus, while discernment and an enlightened sense of cause and effect and higher reality is absolutely necessary, judgment must be understood within the spectrum of the Natural Laws. 

If not even a sparrow can fall to the earth apart from the Will of God (see The Great Christian Quagmire) -- and each person is preordained and hard-wired to the life they are presently living -- then while ideological judgment is in and of itself the embodiment of evil, discernment and being extremely cognizant of the fact that choices have consequences that must be lived out, is a human reality that must be intimately embraced by those who aspire to arise to man's highest potential.   The fact that we are all different -- and to perceive and evolve the ability to understand the causal factors that hard-wired us to these often radically opposite differences -- is of the highest importance in overcoming our own natural limitations -- and ultimately acquiring the Pearl of Great Price.    

  Social Justice And The Natural Laws: Contrary to the Marxist and Secular Progressive ideology of Social Justice, one of the more important elements of the Ten Commandments is not to desire what belongs to your neighbor.   Why?   Because each person was born under different Laws -- they are expressing their lives from the perspective of that fragmentary pearl that they received as their allotted inheritance in this life -- and the key is to develop what you have, without desiring that which has been bestowed upon your brother.   The Shepherd Of Hermas which was the primary scripture used over the course of the first three centuries, takes the prohibition in the Ten Commandments to the next level where it states: "...neither touch that which is another man's, nor lust after it; for it is wicked to lust after other men's possessions."  Why is it "...wicked to lust after other men's possessions"???  This world is God's Divine Schoolhouse -- each person's life is in accord with a syllabus and curriculum that was predetermined before they were even born into this life -- and by Divine Design, each person's lessons are in accord with the needs and requirements of the individual.   There is a reason why some people are born rich, while others are poor -- some are intelligent, while others are seemingly incapable of learning -- some are religious, while others are agnostic or an unbeliever.   Jewish mystics claim that the Jews who suffered under Hitler, were born into the life they lived (see The Chickens Come Home To Roost).  It is not an accident that Jeremiah Wright has embraced what is known as Black Liberation Theology.   Or, that he was Barack Obama's spiritual leader.   It was preordained that George W. Bush would be blamed for a financial meltdown that he did not cause.   That this meltdown would open the door to Barack Obama's presidency.

When you enroll in a course of study, the instructor does not teach the course in any manner of his choosing.   The math teacher does not teach science, history, English Literature, music or cooking.   In like manner, there is a language association in mathematics -- a different language in science -- in music, healing and medicine, as well as all other such courses of study.   In each course of study, there is a predetermined syllabus and curriculum that must be followed, in order to bring about certain results.   And in this respect, each person's life is a course of study -- and as such, is following a predetermined syllabus that is intended to bring about certain results.   In order to learn certain lessons, it is necessary for some people to be born poor.   Others to be born rich.   Medical science has already demonstrated that some people are born with the greater potential of an almost inconceivable number of addictions.   Some people are born virtuous, others not so, while still others become conscious of the need to develop virtue.   Einstein was born into the life of genus.   Mozart composed and performed at the age of five.   Da Vinci was born to be a painter.   Siddhārtha Gautama was born to be the Buddha, as was Jesus born to live the role that he fulfilled.   All the world is a stage -- a stage of learning -- and each person is born into the role that they are to play on the stage of life.  There are no accidents (see Conditions Of Birth), and each person is born with abilities in accord with the lessons of life they have been preordained to learn.   And when we apply this realty to a person's ability to see the previous lives that their higher soul-self has lived, then this ability would be contingent upon the individual requirements of the syllabus and curriculum of the life that the person is presently living -- natural abilities which each person is born into this life to develop into a strength and pearl.

What is important is to achieve your true potential -- and you accomplish this by developing the natural abilities you were imbued with when you entered this life.   From man's perspective, the Pearl of Great Price is achieved when you can see and understand from the perspective and Being of your higher Soul-Self who is the balance and cumulation of all the fragmented lives that your soul has lived (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image).   And while you can't at present simply jump to the soul-level of being and perceive reality from this higher enlightened perspective, you can and must begin to listen and develop the empathetic intuition necessary to begin to expand one's own mind, consciousness and being.    

In further reply I wrote the following addition to the above:
 

We are in this world to develop the necessary mental maturity to arise to a level of spiritual wholeness and completion of our true self -- i.e., our soul-self (see SoulSelf.org ).   Holographically, we follow the pattern -- and in the same way that our higher soul-self began as a mere spark of the Divine which was the offspring of Mother/Father God that was infused with the consciousness of the Logos (Mind of God), we begin our existence as a single-cell embryo from our mother/father which was infused with the consciousness of our higher soul-self.   So, in the Triune Pattern, the very fact that two-thirds of our initial make-up was comprised of earth-elements in the form of the sperm and ovum that spawned our body-vessel -- and our physical body was then built with elements from the earth which has a consciousness that is of the earth -- it can be said that while the consciousness that comprises our physical being has never lived before, it does have a connection in mind to our higher soul-self from which we inherited our Spiritual DNA.   And since our body-vessel is formed from the (animal) consciousness of the earth, we must refine, train-up and prevail over the consciousness of the body to manifest the true being that we are which is the soul-essence we inherited from our higher soul-self -- in much the same way that our soul-self inherited the attributes of the Logos (see http://TheThreeLies.com#Logos ) when it came into being at the Alpha of Time.      In the parable of the Sower and the Seed, only those seeds that became implanted in what is portrayed as the "good ground" were able to flourish and multiply one hundredfold in its process of growth and expansion.   Which means that your success in this life is contingent upon your purification and fertilization of the body-vessel and associated physical consciousness -- which will make the third-force seed-essence evolve and expand in accord with the Natural Laws of Creation.   When Paul preached the doctrine of salvation by faith, what he was affirming is the fact that if you embrace the teachings of the Gospel so as to create within yourself the environment of the "good ground"  as portrayed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, then the Kingdom will come within you as you become transformed into what is allegorically portrayed as the Final Temple.   Since your higher soul-self which is the conscious cumulative manifestation of all the lives that it has ever lived (see http://SoulSelf.org ) -- and as the Source of your being, already knows more than anyone in this world could ever begin to teach you -- the process of mental growth and development is in the endeavor of making the body-vessel a fit environment for the higher soul-self to manifest -- and ultimately, the Logos which exists at the very core of your Being.    What I am attempting to accomplish in this and the associated web sites, is to remove the (mental) blockages from the environment of your body-vessel -- in much the same way that a farmer removes rocks, roots, weeds and other impurities from the soil -- which permits the seed-essence to expand and bloom.   G.I. Gurdjieff stated that the seed-essence of most people develops to about the age of four or five, before being flat-lined by the earth-consciousness of the body which he portrayed as a multitude of false-personalities.   Valentinus stated that nature-man who is ruled over by the earth-consciousness of man's lower nature which has formed his earthly personality, has no continuance beyond the grave -- and this is true, because your seed-essence which is an embryonic image of your higher soul-self, was suppressed and undeveloped by virtue of the fact that it was developmentally flat-lined by the ego-self and false-personalities associated with the physical consciousness of the body-vessel.   If that part of you that survives physical death and is an embryonic image of your higher soul-self projected into the (animal/earthly) consciousness of the body-vessel at conception, then we must consider a reality that has largely been ignored: In the same way that you don't eat the earth which the plant has grown in, neither can the soul-self harvest the false-personalities which are of the earth, when your physical self dies.  And what is harvested from any given life, is what the seed-essence accomplished while in the body-vessel -- and from a Gospel parabolic perspective, that which is supported by higher soul-reality is portrayed as the sheep on the Right Hand, while that which remains carnal and of this world is portrayed as the goats of the Left Hand.   Since the vast majority of people are cultural, and their thinking is earth-bound, the seed-essence never really developed as portrayed by Gurdjieff and others.   And this is the plight of the un-manifest images in Gospel of Thomas saying 84 (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image).    > Since most people are totally ruled over by the earth-consciousness of the body, it can rightly be stated that they have never lived before -- and yet, their undeveloped essence-self which is an embryonic image of their higher soul-self is eternal -- and it is this undeveloped essence-self that survives physical death -- which has always existed.   Thus, quoting from http://ebionite.com/reincarnation.htm :  At Genesis 2:7, the Wycliffe Commentary writes: “Man's body was fashioned from the dust of the ground, while his spirit came from the very ‘breath’ of God. He is literally a creature of two worlds; both earth and heaven can claim him”.  More importantly, though, is for us to clarify our understanding of when the soul came into existence.   Thus, the Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary notes the belief of both the Jews and early Church:“The... views of Origen and other Fathers, and the... Talmudists, that all souls had been created ‘in the beginning,’ and were lodged by God in a certain place, whence each one was taken out to inhabit the respective bodies of individuals”.   In this respect, it can easily be demonstrated the first followers of Yeshua firmly believed that the soul pre-existed the body, and that our present physical forms are mere vessels that we inhabit during our sojourn in this life.   And further: What was the thinking and mindset of the Jews in the time of Yeshua/Jesus?   In his Antiquity of the Jews, the Jewish historian Josephus, who had lived among the Essenes, was a contemporary of the man Jesus, and became an Ebionite, stated that the Essenes: “…resigned up their souls with great alacrity, as expecting to receive them again.  For their doctrine is this, that bodies are corruptible, and that the matter they are made of is not permanent; but that the souls are immortal, and continue for ever; and that they came out of the most subtle air, and are united to their bodies as to prisons, into which they are drawn by a certain natural enticement; but that when they are set free from the bonds of flesh, they then, as released from a long bondage, rejoice and mount upward...”   

The vast majority of people don't remember the previous lives that their soul-self has lived, because their consciousness is of the earth -- comprised of the multitude of false personalities that make up the consciousness of their physical self -- and as such, they have not only never lived before, but in their present temporal form, they have no real continuance beyond the grave.   Moreover -- and this is really important to comprehend -- that part of us that is of the earth, inherits the karma of its previous actions in the previous lives that the soul-self has lived as.   So, when the soul-self generates a soul-image at conception -- and the consciousness of the body and/or lower nature begins to form out of the elements of the earth -- the karma belongs more to the earth-consciousness, than to the soul-image that is more or less a captive of the body-vessel.   Which is why the Essenes portrayed this life as the soul being "...united to their bodies as to prisons" -- and because the consciousness of the body is controlled by the lower nature, the illusions of Plato's Cave is the result of the inability of the physical self to perceive beyond an earth-vibrational level of being.  Quoting from Science - Religion - The Etheric Field/MindQuoting physicist Walter Thirring in his book, Urbausteine der Materie where he wrote about matter that modern physics “...has put our thinking about the essence of matter in a different context.   It has taken our gaze from the visible - the particles - to the underlying entity, the field.   The presence of matter is merely a disturbance of the perfect state of the field at that place; something accidental, one could almost say, a ‘blemish’.   Accordingly, there are no simple laws describing the forces between elementary particles… Order and symmetry must be sought in the underlying field.”   One of the primary realities that science has to come to terms with in order to advance beyond their present level, is the fact that physical matter is the result of the forces in the Etheric Field coming together, causing what Walter Thirring above describes as a "blemish" that we observe with our organic physical senses.   And what this is, is Darwinism in reverse -- i.e., modern science has proven that the Field which is unseen and surrounds all matter, is the Source which impresses the aspect of mind and consciousness which is represented in the form of matter that we observe.   The problem is that to the organic mind of both the faith-based believer, as well as the Atheist, what modern science has proven is simply beyond their ability to even contemplate.   What man calls knowledge, is the wisdom and understanding gained through his study of what Walter Thirring called the "blemish" -- i.e., the illusion of what we perceive as physical matter.    Yet, without understanding the underlying forces in the Field that formed the blemish that organic man observes as concrete physical matter, it can be stated that what we observe in the physical world is so incomplete, that it would be virtually impossible to truly understand what we think and imagine we see.    Reality, states the physicist, can only be found in the (Etheric) Field -- and it is the Field that both surrounds all physical forms that we observe with our body-senses, and it is the unseen Field that is the source of what we perceive with our physical senses which we call matter.   Which again, is reverse Darwinism -- in that, Darwinism attempted to demonstrate that this physical world came into being apart from any unseen supernatural forces -- and modern science has now proven that this world is the direct result of unseen forces that would be defined as supernatural, or beyond what is seen with the physical senses.     

What is portrayed in the above is a complex paradoxical equation that few people whose thinking and mindset is ruled over by what we portray as earth-bound Cave (Plato's Cave) Logic possess the depth and capacity to comprehend.   How is it that while your soul has existed from the beginning -- and yet, man can't remember these previous lives?   And it can rightly be stated that he has never lived before?   How is it that while our soul is eternal, the personality of man does not survive physical death?   He does not go to Glory, as the Christians believe?   And neither can his conglomeration of false-personalities that are very much of the earth and ruled over by his inherent animal nature, reincarnate into some future life as many Easterners and New Age believe?   The Gospel does not say that if you walk the broad-way of (self) destruction (see In The House - Taught In Parables), that you will be reborn in some future life.   Neither does it say that if you walk the broad-way of (self) destruction, you will go to Glory.   In fact, it is easily demonstrated that the core Christians beliefs in salvation is a dogmatic lie (see TheLie.org ).   What it does say is that you must lose the self that you are in this world, in order to gain your true self.   And it does say that all events have a pre-existing cause that you have yourself brought about.   And to bring all these biblically portrayed realities together in an understanding mindset, requires an effort to develop the mind -- which must be nourished by the higher impressions of your soul-self -- as you create within yourself the necessary environment of mental growth and development.    With the problem for most people being that the Condition of the body and physical consciousness will not permit the development of the seed-essence self -- which renders them completely incapable of higher comprehension and understanding.   

Higher Development Of Mind And Spirit:

Would you say that the oxygen which a plant gives off is the plants thoughts and feelings? A reality that organic man remains totally unaware of, is that your physical body is not only an integral part of nature -- but that the consciousness of the earth is as a great mind that is supported and held in balance by its lesser elemental parts.  In the same way that a plant gives off oxygen which is then used by organic life, man on an etheric level gives off impressions (the frequency spectrum of which) is carried upon the vital life-force that you extrude and feed the great mind/consciousness of the earth.  Male and female extrude an opposite polarity -- the races extrude differing spectrums of the human frequency -- and these impressions are as a type of mental food.

If you apply the Key of Knowledge to the parable, the inheritance which the prodigal son squanders away, is the very vital life-force upon which his consciousness is manifest. Instead of using this vital life-force to bring about his growth through the Heightening And Expansion Of Mind -- channeling the vital life-force within self in the endeavor to bring about the next stage of birth -- the lost prodigal son squanders this vital life-force away on "riotous" carnal appetites and living. Which makes him a slave to the "Citizen of the Far Country" -- or consciousness/god of this world. The way of the monk (see Monk), attempts to cut off the loss of vital life-force by denying the appetites of the body, and focus on the upper spiritual centers in meditation. The True Gnostic (vs modern neo-gnostic) works instead to develop and refine the lower appetites of the body -- and though esoteric knowledge of the Cosmology of Mind, works to evolve the lower natures in order to make them a fit vessel for the spiritual -- transforming the self into what is portrayed as the Final Temple. There are many places in the writings associated with this forum that explore impressions -- i.e., see Impressions As Food. There are numerous references to impressions in The Trinity And The Divine Pattern Of Creation. In The Holographic Pattern Of Sex, you should find why the Gospel account of Jesus condemns looking as a woman who is not your wife with lust -- i.e., the loss of vital life-force. And if you were reading the links that have been presented to you, you should have encountered an explanation of impressions all over the place -- especially in any place that details the biblical perception of marriage.

In the Gospel accounts when Jesus healed, he did so by restoring the person to a condition of  "wholeness".   But since the term wholeness is not at all understood by those who translate the ancient texts into English, most modern translations no longer reflect this important aspect of what is being presented.   A holistic healer knows that negative experiences and beliefs create blockages in the body-vessel which inhibit the flow of vital life-force -- and the fact that this bio-energy must go someplace, it is lost into nature through the carnal appetites and expressions of the physical self.  What man often portrays as carnal sin, would better be understood as the result of the loss of the inheritance (vital life-force) by the prodigal son who is living a "riotous" lifestyle -- primarily, because his immaturity inhibits his using this bio-energy to empower his higher areas and spheres of mind and being.   Thus, because he can't utilize the bio-energy, it is squandered away on "things of no meaning" and higher significance.  Proper exercise, and holistic healing such as Reiki where blockages of energy are released from the body through deep manipulation, should be an integral part of the process of mental development.   As is such things as yoga which  manipulates  and channels the bio-energy of the body -- and many other holistic forms of healing.    

It is easily proven that the original disciples and followers of Jesus were all vegetarian (see TheConsecratedLife.com ). That the mind and thinking of a flesh-eater is incapable of comprehending the higher impressions necessary to understand man's soul and spiritual reality, was proven by the account of Charles Fillmore (see Fillmore).   The case of Charles Fillmore is important, because as a pillar in the New Thought movement, Fillmore totally rejected the idea that what you eat can affect your thinking and ability to comprehend man's higher spiritual reality.    On a purely physical level, of course, when you eat dead flesh you not only impact the colon and clog up the body with animal fat and cholesterol, but you also flood the blood stream with toxic death and the fear-impressions of the slaughtered animal.   But since the colon is the organ that manifests the Foundation sphere of the Tree of Life, an impacted colon that is filled with hardened and putrefied dead animal flesh, simply cannot function at the heightened level necessary to access past-life memories.   And this, in conjunction with the blockages of vital life-force throughout the rest of the body -- along with the loss of this necessary bio-energy into nature through carnal appetites and expressions -- does not permit the seed-essence and/or higher mind to develop -- causing the person to remain earth-bound in their thinking.   And since the cultural false-personalities of the person has never lived before, such a person is generally incapable of past-life recall.

Why were you born under the conditions of life that you are experiencing in the present?   Which provokes the question: Is your life the result of chance, or are you in fact responsible for every aspect of the life that you are living?   Prior to the Dark Ages of Profound Ignorance that the Church of Rome cast the world into, there were Christians and wise men who could accurately answer this question from a paradigm of thought that was founded upon sure knowledge.   But these Spiritual Christians were hunted down and put to death.   Why?   Because they rejected the religion of the emperor.  Today, history has again repeated itself, and mankind has become intellectually flat-lined and spiritually castrated by an Atheist driven mindset that is promoted by our culture, and forced upon the  people by a government that is being used to subdue all voices in opposition.  In the same way that the early Christians chose death rather than submitting to the dictates of the Pagan Roman Emperor, the modern Christian must totally reject and throw off the tenets and symbols of Atheism and the prevailing ignorance that is promoted by the religion of Secular Humanism.   In truth, every day those who call themselves Christians deny the Lord, when they submit to the Atheist agenda and paradigm of thought that immerses the culture in abject and profound ignorance, moral and spiritual degeneracy.

What is the conditions of your birth and station in life?   While many of the pre-Nicene Christians could readily answer important questions that has alienated modern man from a higher reality that he is in denial of, most people who have been programmed with the Atheist Paradigm of Thought will conclude that their birth was fate or chance -- an accident -- or even luck.   Yet, in reality, none of these choices are accurate.   Whether you were born rich, poor, in a third world nation or with a silver spoon in your mouth -- or, somewhere in between -- your religion, your occupation, your country of origin, whether you are a male or female, your sexual orientation, liberal, conservative, libertarian, Atheist, Marxist, environmentalist, anarchist -- whatever your present station in life is, not only the manner you entered into this life was determined prior to your even being born -- but the Laws of God has scripted and preordained all of your choices and opportunities that have been presented to you -- as if you are walking through a labyrinth where the measure of your freewill is the determination of what choices you will make with the options that are presented to you.   Jesus taught that not even a sparrow can fall to the ground apart from the Laws of God that brings about all  the events in this world -- and yet, our modern Atheist-driven culture remains totally ignorant of the very Laws that move all things in this world.  

Contrary to cultural thought, it is not an accident that I am married to my wife -- we have been together over the course of countless lifetimes.   In one previous lifetime, my mother in this life, was my wife -- and she died prematurely so that I would meet and marry my present wife.   In that life her death was scripted from before she was born -- as were the conditions of her death -- in order to bring about necessary change in my life that enabled me to fulfill certain objectives.   And while I have observed this reality of the movement of the Laws with respect to the scripting of lives -- not only in my self, but in the lives of countless others -- the reality that people's lives are scripted in order to develop them through certain experiences in this world, simply has no place in the thinking of the Atheists and Secular Humanists/Progressives who are the architects of our present-day culture, even though they remain in ignorant denial of man's true reality.   And the fact that our modern culture has been built upon a gravely flawed Paradigm of Thought, means that no real progress can be achieved until we are prepared to rethink and fix the foundation.  

In the Affidavit submitted to the court by Emmanuel Pohoreski (see Affidavit) which was further confirmed in his testimony before Judge James K. Roberson (see Court Rules Against First Amendment), Emmanuel testified to the fact that he has known me over the course of many lifetimes.    Within the context of these lifetimes, the person who is presently named Emmanuel, was born to meet and work with myself and others on the objectives of these lives -- brought together as a group by the Laws that scripted our lives in order to form a Living Syllabus -- presenting us with choices in the manner of a labyrinth that was determined even before we entered those lifetimes -- and these scripted lives included our death and departure from this world.   In this present lifetime it was scripted into the syllabus-labyrinth that has controlled each and every step that I have taken, who I would meet, who I would interact with, all the possible outcomes of the choices that have been presented to me, as well as how the choices and outcome of my own life will effect the choices and outcome of those people I directly interact with, as well as those on a larger scale who will be effected by my own choices and accomplishments.   Ultimately, the more I can tap into the forces that control the events in my own and the lives of others, the greater my success and ability to positively impact other people.   And to accomplish this, I am required to exercise absolute faith in the knowledge that has been revealed to me via the development of my own intuitive spheres of mind that provides me access to the Source.   As set forth by the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis - see Chickens Come Home To Roost).   As it is written: "In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps" (Prov 16:9 NIV).   And if we inquire as to why everyone's life has been preordained and controlled by the Laws of God and Creation, the answer is that you are presently following a syllabus which has totally scripted the life you are living -- and this life-syllabus was all designed and determined based upon your own previous actions, failures and accomplishments.   Thus, you have not only created the life that you are presently living out of your own past accomplishments and failures -- and your present life is being strictly orchestrated by the Laws of God -- but you are totally responsible for all events within the construct of the good, the bad and the ugly that you experience -- and how you respond to your choices that have been presented to you, will determine the conditions you will encounter in the future, including your next life.   And the reality that those who submit to the Atheist Paradigm of Thought remain totally ignorant of this factual reality of the Laws, is the result of their own mentally narrow and constrained foundation of thinking, mindset and lifestyle.

If we pose the question as to what degree life on earth is predestined?  It is at this point where the biblical teaching on predestination conveys a reality that few people are able or willing to come to terms with -- as demonstrated in Jesus' own words when he said: “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will” (Matt 10:29 RSV).  Thus, we must ask: Was Jesus wrong?   If it is true that not even a sparrow can fall to the ground apart from the Will of God, then we have no other option than to come to terms with the reality presented in the Gospels that every event in this life is directly orchestrated by (the Laws of) God?   And that this knowledge can only be imparted to those who are sincere seekers and disciples of TheWay that Jesus taught, is a reality that those in denial must come to terms with.

On the above verse the Adam Clark Bible Commentary states: “The providence of God extends to the minutest things; everything is continually under the government and care of God, and nothing occurs without his will or permission”.   In relation to this verse under the heading of Providence in the Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary it is explained that: “Divine government is the continued activity of God by which He directs all things to the ends He has chosen in His eternal plan… He governs insignificant things (Matt. 10:29-31), apparent accidents (Prov. 16:33), as well as man's good (Phil. 2:13) and evil deeds (Acts 14:16). God acts in accordance with the laws and principles that He has established in the world. The laws of nature are nothing more than man's description of how we perceive God at work in the world. They neither have inherent power nor do they work by themselves. Man is not free to choose and act independently from God's will and plan; he chooses and acts in accordance with them. In His sovereignty, God controls man's choices and actions (Gen. 45:5; Deut. 8:18; Prov. 21:1). God's actions, however, do not violate the reality of human choice or negate man's responsibility as a moral being”.

The Church Father Origen who was known as "the prince of Christian learning" in the third century, second only to the Apostles, writes that "...to every one according to his merits; nor will the happiness or unhappiness of each one's birth, or whatever be the condition that falls to his lot, be deemed accidental" (see http://DivineStrategery.com/#predestination ).  Why?   Why is the conditions of one's birth not be deemed an accident?   Because there are no accidents as the Atheist and Secular Humanist mindset promotes.    Origen then goes on and writes with respect to each person's station in life "...that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel [person] has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor."   And, as stated in the foregoing, each person's birth into this life is determined by that person's own past actions -- i.e., "...either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor".   Or, as stated by the Apostle Paul: "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   And this same exact message is being presented to every person today, in our own time, in the very life that they are presently living.    When the Labyrinth of the Laws that directs our paths throughout life presents us with choices, it is at this point only, where we are able to exercise freewill and choice.  

When the Laws which create a type of Labyrinth in the life that each person is presently living out is understood, it can be said that this world is very much as a Living Bio-Feedback system that invokes and initiates Laws -- and these Laws then return back to each individual -- as well as each group on a primary and secondary level -- based upon the fruit of their own actions, mindset and lifestyle.   Which means that each individual person -- as well as each group, religion, school of thought, from small to that of a large nation -- i.e., the plight and struggles that each of us confronts throughout every aspect of the life we are presently living -- is all authored by our own previous actions in our own past.   And this is why Rabbi Ovadia Yosefan, the former chief rabbi of Israel -- a religious scholar who was also the spiritual leader of the Shas party -- made the statement that no innocent Jews died in the Holocaust.  What Rabbi Yosefan said was that the 6 million 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 The Chickens Come Home To Roost).   In the same way that the Church Father Origen (see above) stated "...that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one", what Rabbi Yosefan stated was that as many as 6 million souls were born into a life in Germany where, because of their previous actions, both their lives and their death at the hands of Hitler were all orchestrated by the Laws or God, in order to atone for their own actions which are portrayed as sins in previous lifetimes.   Thus, when the Laws of God are properly understood, the life of each person in the present has been orchestrated by their own past -- and in the present each person (and groups of people) are creating their future lives that they will inherit based upon their own actions or inaction.

 

 

 

 

 

 
 
 

  

 

Christians are faith-based, simply because both the essence of the Gospel and the objectives and higher realities of life make absolutely no sense to their limited thinking which is inhibited by a foundational mindset that is pagan and manmade.   It is impossible for them to comprehend the reality of the foregoing Gospel teachings that they continually ignore -- and how these important teachings can possibly apply to them in the manner that they appear to -- because the very foundation of their thinking is manmade and counterfeit.   And this fact is especially seen in the question asked by the disciples: "Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, 'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?'" (John 9:1-2 NKJ).   Thus, what Christian today would ask the forgoing question?   Not a single one would.    Why?    Because modern Christians have been totally alienated from the biblical foundational mindset, by the very doctrines adopted while the Church was ruled over by Pagan Rome.    Thus, we must pose the question:  What prompted the disciples of Jesus to even ask such a question?  Turning to the historian, this ultra important element to the equation of life is made reference to by Edward Gibbon in the footnote regarding the question of the disciples at John 9:2: "The disciples of Jesus were persuaded that a man might have sinned before he was born, (John, ix. 2,) and the Pharisees held the transmigration [reincarnation] of virtuous souls, (Joseph. de Bell. Judaico, l. ii. c. 7;) and a modern Rabbi is modestly assured, that Hermes, Pythagoras, Plato, etc., derived their metaphysics from his illustrious countrymen" (Gibbon; Decline & Fall) -- metaphysics that embraced the concept of the pre-existence and transmigration of the soul.

Again, let me pose the question as to what this statement means to us from a modern-day perspective?   It means that the mindset and doctrinal thinking of the modern believer is so alienated from the original biblical foundational mindset and thinking, that the modern believer has been rendered spiritually sterile.    The original mindset and thinking with respect to the events of life from the perception of the disciples is explored in the Wycliffe Commentary where it is written: "The question of the disciples (v. 2) was grounded in the belief that bodily infirmity or suffering was due to sin, whether of parents (Exo 20:5) or of the man himself, presumably on the basis of the soul’s pre-existence, which some Jews held".   Thus we must ask: Is this some Jewish fable that the disciples of Christ conjured up themselves?   Or is this belief a foundational element of the Gospel that Jesus taught to them?   Once properly understood the position of the disciples is founded upon the construct of Jesus' statement to the person he healed and made whole: "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).    And what this means is that those who sin -- especially after coming to the knowledge of the Gospel message -- inherit a fate even worse than before they were healed from their sin.   To the degree that Paul warned the congregation of believers: , “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).    

What does it mean that "...God cannot be mocked -- [and that each person] reaps what he sows”?   To the degree that Jesus warned the man: "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee."    Yet, to their own spiritual demise, the vast majority of Christians promote the belief that they are exempt from having their own sin and misdeeds come back upon them in the manner that is portrayed in these verses -- and that somehow they have been exempted from the fruit of their own ways, while everyone else is held in judgment.    In fact, Christians promote the doctrine that because they attempt to appease the Lord with their lips, they virtually have a license to live in sin.    And they cling to this doctrine even though the Gospel warns that their fate will be worse than the unbelievers (see Fate) -- and that because of their infidelity to the Gospel wherein they crucify the Son of God afresh, even the opportunity of salvation by virtue of the sacrifice on the cross has been denied to them (see Sacrifice).    And because of their infidelity to the Gospel, they have been rendered spiritually blind to the degree that they fail to perceive that they are dwelling in what Jesus portrayed as The Prison and the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Blindness) -- incapable of understanding the core meaning of the Gospel and the scriptures.    

When Jesus warned the man "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" -- he confirmed the doctrine that all the calamities of life is caused by man's sin and disobedience to the Royal Law of God.   On the question itself that the disciples of Jesus asked -- i.e., Master, who did sin? -- the commentary Barnes’ Notes writes that: "It was a universal opinion among the Jews that calamities of all kinds were the effects of sin. The case, however, of this man was that of one that was blind from his birth, and it was a question which the disciples could not determine whether it was his fault or that of his parents. Many of the Jews, as it appears from their writings (see Lightfoot), believed in the doctrine of the transmigration of souls; or that the soul of a man, in consequence of sin, might be compelled to pass into other bodies, and be punished there. They also believed that an infant might sin before it was born (see Lightfoot), and that consequently this blindness might have come upon the child as a consequence of that".

On the question of who did sin, this man, or his parents, and the pre-existence and reincarnation of the soul, the Adam Clarke Commentary tells us: "The doctrine of the transmigration of souls appears to have been an article in the creed of the Pharisees, and it was pretty general both among the Greeks and the Asiatics. The Pythagoreans believed the souls of men were sent into other bodies for the punishment of some sin which they had committed in a pre-existent state. This seems to have been the foundation of the disciples’ question to our Lord. Did this man sin in a pre-existent state, that he is punished in this body with blindness? Or, did his parents commit some sin, for which they are thus plagued in their offspring!... The Jewish rabbis have had the same belief from the very remotest antiquity. Origen cites an apocryphal book of the Hebrews, in which the patriarch Jacob is made to speak thus: I am an angel of God; one of the first order of spirits. Men call me Jacob, but my true name, which God has given me, is Israel: Orat. Joseph. apud ORIG. Many of the Jewish doctors have believed that the souls of Adam, Abraham, and Phineas, have successively animated the great men of their nation. Philo says that the air is full of spirits, and that some, through their natural propensity, join themselves to bodies; and that others have an aversion from such a union. See several other things relative to this point in his treatises, De Plant. Noe-- De Gigantibus-- De Confus. Ling.-- De Somniis, etc.; and see Calmet, where he is pretty largely quoted".

It is important in our assessment of genuine biblical foundations of thought to recognize the fact that the pre-existence and what some call the reincarnation of the soul was a universally accepted belief among the people who Jesus taught the Gospel Precepts -- and in the case of the Disciples, the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God.  Once this fact is acknowledged, then we are forced to conclude that if this belief about the nature of life was in error, and the journey of the pre-existent soul is not a viable part of the teachings of Jesus, then Jesus would have had to condemn it -- or, we must recognize that it was removed by the later Gentile Church.

Did the Jews in the first century believe in the pre-existent soul?  The Hastings-Scribner Dictionary Of The Bible (New York, 1903. Bk 4, p. 63) "To affirm that Jews in Christ's time did not believe in pre-existence is simply incorrect".   At Genesis 2:7, the Wycliffe Commentary writes: “Man's body was fashioned from the dust of the ground, while his spirit came from the very ‘breath’ of God. He is literally a creature of two worlds; both earth and heaven can claim him”.  More importantly, though, is for us to clarify our understanding of when the soul came into existence.   Thus, the Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary notes the belief of both the Jews and early Church: “The... views of Origen and other Fathers, and the... Talmudists, that all souls had been created ‘in the beginning,’ and were lodged by God in a certain place, whence each one was taken out to inhabit the respective bodies of individuals”.   In this respect, it can easily be demonstrated the first followers of Yeshua firmly believed that the soul pre-existed the body, and that our present physical forms are mere vessels that we inhabit during our sojourn in this life.

That the Pharisees understood that a man is born blind from the misdeeds of a previous life is seen in their words to the man: "You were born entirely in sins, and are you teaching us?" (Jn 9:34 NAS).  Moreover, it is well documented that the Essenes -- who with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls are now understood to be the foundation of New Covenant teachings -- also believed in the pre-existence and transmigration of the soul.   In his Antiquity of the Jews, the Jewish historian Josephus, who had lived among the Essenes, and was a contemporary of the man Jesus, stated that the Essenes: “…resigned up their souls with great alacrity, as expecting to receive them again.  For their doctrine is this, that bodies are corruptible, and that the matter they are made of is not permanent; but that the souls are immortal, and continue for ever; and that they came out of the most subtle air, and are united to their bodies as to prisons, into which they are drawn by a certain natural enticement; but that when they are set free from the bonds of flesh, they then, as released from a long bondage, rejoice and mount upward...”.  

Josephus openly wrote the foregoing words pertaining to the pre-existent soul that incarnates into the body, because it was a predominant belief held by the Jews in the first century.   And in the version of John 9:1 that is contained in the Gospel of the Nazirenes 53:1 (see Born Blind) we can see what the Gospel of John used to contain before being edited by the Church (see BibleCorruption.com) where it is written: "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."

Modern Christians fail to realize that their religion evolved out of Judaism, and Spiritual Jews have always founded their system of beliefs upon the concept of the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes.   The following quotation is taken from The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, under the heading of Souls, Transmigration of: “The doctrine of transmigration of souls, which was especially accepted by the Karaites… is generally attacked by Jewish philosophers, but is defended by Isaac Abravanel and Manasseh ben Israel.  It appears often in Cabala; it is found in organized form in the Zohar, it is further developed in the teachings of Isaac Luria (1534-1572), and in Hasidism it becomes a universal belief.   According to these teachings, all human souls have a common origin in the spiritual unity of the primordial man, sparks of which form the individual souls... The sin of Adam brought higher and lower souls into confusion; as a result, every soul has to pass through a series of incarnations... The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”.  

In the Zohar, the foundational doctrine of Jewish Mysticism, it is written that: “All souls are subject to the trials of transmigration; and men do not know the designs of the Most High with regard to them… The souls must re-enter the absolute substance whence they have emerged.  But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”.   This reunion with God is the rebirth that was spoken of by Jesus to the Pharisee Nicodemus, “a ruler of the Jews”.  

Parallel to the Journey of the Soul as set forth in the Zohar in the foregoing, is the teachings in the Qur'an which states "God generates beings, and sends them back over and over again, till they return to Him"    Which again parallels the teachings of Jesus in the Pistis Sophia where it is stated: “But if he shall have sinned once, twice, or thrice, they shall reject that soul, sending it back again into the world according to the form of the sins that it may have committed; the form whereof I will declare unto you hereafter.   But verily, verily I say unto you, that even the righteous man that hath committed no sin at all cannot be brought into the Kingdom of Light, forasmuch the seal of the mysteries of that kingdom is not found upon him.  Once for all, I say unto you, a soul cannot be brought into the kingdom, if it be without the mysteries of the Kingdom of the Light.”   When it is understood that the "...seal of the mysteries" which is further stated in the pronouncement that "...Once for all, I say unto you, a soul cannot be brought into the kingdom, if it be without the mysteries of the Kingdom of the Light”  is parallel to the Zohar where it states that "...But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”.

While Christians attempt to interpret the parable of the Prodigal Son in fragmented piecemeal, when taken as a whole, and understood as a universal reality common to all of mankind in the manner it was intended to be understood, it is recognized to be in total conflict with modern Christian doctrine.    Once it is understood that each of us is the Prodigal Son/Daughter of our Heavenly Father, then it must also be recognized that each of us at one time dwelled in the Kingdom prior to journeying out into this, the "far country".    Thus, we see this parallel concept in the above quotation from the Zohar where it states that each of us, like the Prodigal Son that we are, must return to our Source -- i.e.,  "The souls must re-enter the absolute substance whence they have emerged...."

In the parable of the Wedding Feast, those who come to TheCall, must have put on the required Wedding Garment -- and thus, we see the parallel concept in the Zohar in the words with respect to the required perfection of each soul: "But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them..."   To the degree that Jesus stated in the Sermon on the Mount at Matthew 5:48 that each soul must be as perfect as their Heavenly Father -- i.e., again parallel to the Zohar: "...and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”.

To even begin to comprehend this higher reality of the perfection of the soul over the course of many lifetimes, the person must understand the cycle of the Prodigal Son/Daughter as presented in the words: "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways," says the LORD.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.  For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it" (Isa 55:8-11 NKJ).   God cannot fail -- and nothing in Creation can be void -- and as the Prodigal Sons of the Most High, each of us emanated from the Edenic Kingdom of Origination -- and each us us must fulfill the requirement of perfection as presented at Matt 5:48 -- and if this required perfection is "...not fulfilled this condition during one life, [we] must commence another, a third, and so forth, until [our souls] have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”
And as the Prodigal Sons/Daughters of the Most High, each of us was forced to leave the Kingdom and venture out into this world which is portrayed in the parable as the "far country" -- not by our own choosing, but by the Will of God who brought this world which is a realm where each of us is able to grow and evolve to perfection -- i.e., “For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time” (Rom 8:20-22 NIV).   What the Apostle states in the above quotation is that it was the Creator God that subjected mankind to the frustration of what we perceive as the fall of man, in order that “the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage” through the process of the soul-evolution in this world which is God's Spiritual University that perfects and brings about our eventual spiritual rebirth into the Kingdom -- i.e., “We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time”.

If we pose the question as to what degree life on earth is predestined?   It is at this point where the biblical teaching of predestination gets really frightening for the vast majority of people.   Why?   They are in denial -- and not only did they corrupt the scriptures to suppress this important fact of life -- but they simply refuse to believe what the scriptures and Jesus originally taught.   Therefore, in our present time they do not possess even the necessary knowledge of the Laws that control every event, every endeavor, and every person in this world.    From a biblical perspective, this all-pervading fact of life is demonstrated in Jesus' own words when he said: “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will” (Matt 10:29 RSV).   If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground apart from the Will of the Father, then we have no other option than to come to terms with the biblical fact that everything in this life is directly orchestrated by God?   On this verse the Adam Clark Commentary states: “The providence of God extends to the minutest things; everything is continually under the government and care of God, and nothing occurs without his will or permission”.   And this fact of the Laws is expressed in the Wisdom of Isaiah: “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please” (Isa 46:10 NIV).

Lacking even the basic knowledge to understand these statements, most students of the Bible choose to ignore what they do not, and cannot understand, and ignore the ramifications of the countless biblical verses that confirm this all-pervading message that controls every aspect of life that man lives upon the face of the earth.   Moreover, just as important as the above statement by Jesus, is the very words he spoke to the man who he healed when he warned: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).   We must therefore ask: If our own actions can cause "...a worse thing [to] come unto [us]", how is this tribulation brought about?  How is this "...worse thing" that is the result of our sinful and negligent actions, is said to have the potential to come back upon us, orchestrated and brought about?  The answer is that there were Organic Laws that are an integral part of Creation itself -- Laws that were put into action at the very beginning of Creation which returns to each person the fruit of their own actions -- i.e., “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   With respect to the above, Paul went on to say that someone who professes to believe in Jesus, and continues to sin, are not only apostates to the Gospel, but that their fate is worse off than the unbelievers -- i.e., "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).   Which means that we must ask the question: How is this judgment brought about?  The answer is: By virtue of the Laws that return to each person the fruit of their own past.

Without Exception, every person is at their present station in life, by virtue of the road they personally traveled to get there.   Without Exception, everything that exists in one's present life, exists for a reason -- and has been brought about as the result of a pre-existing causal action, which has become manifest in order to bring about a preordained result.   Without Exception, your present life is the result of your past, and you are presently creating and forming your future.    Without Exception, if you are a victim of any of life's circumstances, then you have made yourself a victim by virtue of your own actions, inactions, or complacency.    Without Exception, your own past actions are responsible for your present gender, race, sexual orientation, social and economic station in life, manner of thinking and mindset, and even the religious, political and cultural conditions of the life you are presently living.    And the fact that you fail to understand even the basis of Jesus' words on this subject, indicates that you lack any real practical understanding of any of Jesus' fundamental teachings. 

It is the mind that raises man above the beasts of the earth -- that permits him to prevail over the forces of nature -- that enables him to rule over his environment -- overcoming even the very force of gravity that holds him to the earth, and traveling to distant heavenly bodies that his ancestors worshiped as gods.   And to escape the limitations of this world, and begin to rule over one's self in pursuit of the Inner Kingdom (see Gate Of Eden) -- and through this expansion of the mind and being beyond the organic limitations of earth-consciousness, the prodigal sons and daughters are able to fulfill the Laws in the same way as their Elder Brother Jesus taught, and become re-born in the Kingdom while still in the body-vessel.   Thus, to this end the Gospel of Philip declares: "Those who say that first they shall die and (then) they shall arise are confused. If they do not first receive the resurrection (while) they live, they will not receive anything (when) they die"( http://DivineManna.org ).

  

 

Early Church on Predestination: In the words of the third century Church Father Origen -- the man St. Gregory of Nyssa called “the prince of Christian learning in the Third Century”: “We have frequently shown”, writes Origen, “by those declarations which we were able to produce from the holy Scriptures, that God, the Creator of all things, is good, and just, and all-powerful… But since those rational creatures themselves, as we have frequently shown, and will yet show in the proper place, were endowed with the power of free-will, this freedom of will incited each one either to progress by imitation of God, or reduced him to failure through negligence… Now God, who deemed it just to arrange His creatures according to their merit, brought down these different understandings into the harmony of one world, that He might adorn, as it were, one dwelling, in which there ought to be not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay (and some indeed to honor, and others to dishonor), with those different vessels, or souls, or understandings. And these are the causes… why that world presents the aspect of diversity, while Divine Providence continues to regulate each individual according to the variety of his movements, or of his feelings and purpose. On which account the Creator will neither appear to be unjust in distributing (for the causes already mentioned) to every one according to his merits; nor will the happiness or unhappiness of each one's birth, or whatever be the condition that falls to his lot, be deemed accidental; nor will different creators, or souls of different natures, be believed to exist” (De Principiis, Bk 2 Ch 9).   

What Origen is stating is that, in the beginning, each soul was created equal and the same, and their place in life is not the result of an accident, or the indiscriminate manifestation of God's Will in the form of Divine Providence -- but rather, each soul's lot in life is the result of the exercise of their own freewill, and consequently is arranged “according to their merit”.   This merit is not the result of some unknown condition -- but rather, is imposed upon each individual in accordance with what they have accomplished in their previous lives.    Actions have consequences -- both good, bad, and even indifferent.   And that the result of our own actions come back upon us -- which means that each of us is constantly confronting self -- is the manner in which each individual soul evolves to perfection over the course of however many lifetimes is required to complete the process of mental and spiritual evolution.  

Origen then goes on to demonstrate this truth by using the very example which the Apostle Paul gave with regard to why Paul wrote that God hated Esau, and loved Jacob -- even before they were born into that life -- and writes: “‘What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God?' And that he might furnish us with an opportunity of inquiring into these matters, and of ascertaining how these things do not happen without a reason, he answers himself, and says, 'God forbid.' For the same question, as it seems to me, which is raised concerning Jacob and Esau, may be raised regarding all celestial and terrestrial creatures, and even those of the lower world as well. And in like manner it seems to me, that as he there says, 'The children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil,' so it might also be said of all other things, 'When they were not yet' created, 'neither had yet done any good or evil, that the decree of God according to election may stand,' that (as certain think) some things on the one hand were created heavenly, some on the other earthly, and others, again, beneath the earth, 'not of works' (as they think), 'but of Him who calleth,' what shall we say then, if these things are so? 'Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.' As, therefore, when the Scriptures are carefully examined regarding Jacob and Esau, it is not found to be unrighteousness with God that it should be said, before they were born, or had done anything in this life, 'the elder shall serve the younger;' and as it is found not to be unrighteousness that even in the womb Jacob supplanted his brother, if we feel that he was worthily beloved by God, according to the deserts of his previous life, so as to deserve to be preferred before his brother”.

God did not hate Esau and love Jacob for no reason!   To even believe such a preposterous concept of Divine Wisdom, is to affirm Peter's assertion that the Gentiles believe these absurdities because “their minds are accustomed to take in things spoken against God" (see Books With The Power To Deceive).   Respecting the Divine Order of Creation, Origen then continues referring to Paul’s Epistle to the Romans and goes on to explain: “For God must be believed to do and order all things and at all times according to His judgment. For the words which the apostle uses when he says, ‘In a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and of earth, and some to honor and some to dishonor;' and those which he adds, saying, 'If a man purge himself, he will be a vessel unto honor, sanctified and meet for the Master's use, unto every good work,' undoubtedly point out this, that he who shall purge himself when he is in this life, will be prepared for every good work in that which is to come; while he who does not purge himself will be, according to the amount of his impurity, a vessel unto dishonor, i.e., unworthy. It is therefore possible to understand that there have been also formerly rational vessels, whether purged or not, i.e., which either purged themselves or did not do so, and that consequently every vessel, according to the measure of its purity or impurity, received a place, or region, or condition by birth, or an office to discharge, in this world. All of which, down to the humblest, God providing for and distinguishing by the power of His wisdom, arranges all things by His controlling judgment, according to a most impartial retribution, so far as each one ought to be assisted or cared for in conformity with his deserts. In which certainly every principle of equity is shown, while the inequality of circumstances preserves the justice of a retribution according to merit. But the grounds of the merits in each individual case are only recognized truly and clearly by God Himself, along with His only-begotten Word, and His Wisdom, and the Holy Spirit”.

Origen again demonstrates that our lot in life is the result of our own deserts, and writes: “For God the Creator makes a certain vessel unto honor, and other vessels to dishonor; but that vessel which has cleansed itself from all impurity He makes a vessel unto honor, while that which has stained itself with the filth of vice He makes a vessel unto dishonor. The conclusion from which, accordingly, is this, that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor. And if the assertion appear correct, as it certainly is, and in harmony with all piety, that it is due to previous causes that every vessel be prepared by God either to honor or to dishonor, it does not appear absurd that, in discussing remoter causes in the same order, and in the same method, we should come to the same conclusion respecting the nature of souls, and (believe) that this was the reason why Jacob was beloved before he was born into this world, and Esau hated, while he still was contained in the womb of his mother”.

 

Why is there evil in the world?   That is an easy question to answer and it is presented in the Book of Revelations in the words: “If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” (Rev 13:9-10 NKJ - see also other quotations below at Chickens Come Home To Roost).   While to a person who possesses even the most basic understanding of the Natural Laws of the Earth and Creation the foregoing is representative of an ultra-important statement of Wisdom that should be a guiding principle in the thinking and lives of all of mankind, it is a fact that modern man has been so alienated from his own true higher reality, that few people will even be able to understand the far-reaching impact of what is represented in these words.   And fundamentally there is evil in the world, because of man's ignorance and rejection of the reality portrayed in these words. 

In the above subheading on The Conditions Of One's Birth, what is presented is the reality not only that each person is born into the conditions that their own past actions have orchestrated, but also that this world is a Living Bio-Feedback Organism that is controlled by Natural Universal Law to provide every individual and group with the environment they need to achieve their Ultimate Destiny in accord with the Divine Design of Creation.   @@@

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why Does Knowledge Of The Laws Matter?

Jesus not only taught that the life that everyone is living has been predestined from before they were even born, but that one's failure to embrace and abide by the Higher Laws of Creator-God, will bring about a type of imprisonment -- an  imprisonment that is portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being below.  Thus, the oft ignored warning: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   In speaking of this prison of the "outer darkness", Jesus warned that “Thou shalt by no means come out from there, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (Mat 5:26).   And while this reality was understood by the early Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus (see Ebionite), and the early Gentile Christians (see The Secret Doctrine), this higher understanding of the journey of the pre-existent soul and the interaction with the Laws, was declared heresy by the Emperor Justinian because his wife who was said to have previously been a circus prostitute, rejected these important teachings of the Church (see The Ten Reasons Why The Church Rejected The Doctrine Of The Pre-Existent Soul).    And many of the biblical teachings which supported these teachings, had previously been removed to make the scriptures support the pagan doctrines of Rome (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).  

  The Parable Of The Talents: Even in what remains in the corrupted scriptures, it can still be seen that Jesus taught that each person is born into this life in accord with their own past accomplishments.   "And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey" (Matt 25:15 NKJ).   The key concept here is that each person in this world is not only entrusted with a different amount, but that each person is entrusted with an amount "...each according to his own ability."   What this means is that each and every person was born into this life, exactly as ordained for them in accord with their own past accomplishments, and those who find fault with their lot in life, are in reality judging themselves (see a more in-depth presentation on the parable of the talents at Christian Blindness To The Scriptures).  

One of the many paradoxes that confront the believer is explored in these biblical verses by the Wycliffe Commentary which writes: “Herein is the crux of the interpretation. If this reckoning is the judgment of the believer's works, then we apparently have a true believer suffering the loss of his soul because of the barrenness of his works. But that interpretation would contradict John 5:24. Or, if the unprofitable servant represents a mere professing Christian, whose real nature is thus unmasked, then it appears that the judgment of believers' works and the damnation of sinners occur together, although Revelation 20 separates these judgments by 1,000 years”.

What does John 5:24 say?  “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life” (John 5:24 NIV).   What we must recognize is the fact that there is only a contradiction with respect to our interpretation of the word belief.   The Bible is very clear that those people who claim an allegiance to the Lord, and yet continue to live in the manner of unbelievers, are themselves self-condemned; as seen in the words: “Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven” (Matt 7:21 NIV).   Thus, only those who actually live in accordance with the Royal Law of God, and do the Will of the Father, are those of whom John 5:24 states will be saved.

  A Most Important Warning To Christians:  Where in the above the Wycliffe Bible Commentary correctly makes note of the great conflict between the message of the scriptures and the doctrines of the Church where it is noted that "...we apparently have a true believer suffering the loss of his soul because of the barrenness of his works", even more important is the message at the end of this parable that proclaims: “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).    When you put this message together with the warning of the Apostle Peter that "It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them." (2 Pet 2:20-22 NIV) -- the message that emerges from the Gospel is so radically different than what is preached in the Churches, that the Christian world is seen to be so spiritually disenfranchised by their manmade dogma, that they are not at all prepared to even read the very scriptures they have attempted to champion.   In the picture that emerges, not only is the  "...true believer suffering the loss of his soul because of the barrenness of his works", but his fate is worse off than those portrayed as unbelievers who are deemed sinners by the very limited and inept understanding of the Church.    Not only is it demonstrated that the believing Christian is held to much higher standards than the unbelieving sinner, but it is clearly stated that the believing Christian is subject to the greater damnation -- i.e., “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".   And is we even pose the question as to what is the fate of the believer who has been  "...beaten with many blows", versus the unbeliever who "...does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows", it is impossible for the Church to even begin to answer the very serious questions that are raised by this warning of Jesus.  

In the removal of important key Gospel teachings and concepts, the Church of Rome has not only left a great void in the understanding of the modern Christian world which totally inhibits their ability to come to terms with these foundational truths taught by Jesus and his disciples, but this great void in their understanding of the very core Gospel concepts has made the modern Christian little more than ladder-day blind guides.   The fact that it is impossible for the modern Christian to explain why they are being held to a higher standard than the unbeliever who "...does things deserving [much] punishment" -- and as supposed believers, their fate is far worse than these unbelievers -- indicates that the doctrines of the modern Church is demonstrated by the Gospel message itself, as being in grave error.   Which means that the only valid explanation is that given by the Church Father Origen above who had access to more pure copies of the scriptures before they were totally corrupted in the fourth century, where he explains that "...The conclusion from which, accordingly, is this, that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor" (see Early Church On Predestination).   And this is the only explanation in the warning of the parable of the Talents (Mt. 25:14-30 - see Christian Blindness To The Scriptures And The Parable Of The Talents), where the servant who put his talent into the earth, instead of multiplying what he had received through spiritual works, was cast into the "outer darkness" -- i.e., "Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.  And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matt 25:28-30 NKJ).     

Totally contrary to modern Church doctrine, the above reality confirms what Peter warned in the words: "If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: A dog returns to its vomit, and, A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud" (2 Pet 2:20-22 NIV).   Where the modern Church promotes the doctrine that they are saved by Grace regardless of the manner in which they live their lives, Peter not only states that this doctrine is in grave error, but correctly states that: "It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them."

Other than the foregoing writings and explanations of the early Church Father Origen, this answer to this Christian dilemma is presented in scriptures which the modern Church rejects.   There are verses pertaining to the plight of the servants that still exist in the Gospel of the Nazirenes, which explain the inconsistencies that abound in Christian doctrine and understanding of why each of us enters this life at greatly differing levels of spiritual awareness.   Thus, we again see the words: "And that servant which knew his lord's will and did not prepare himself, nor followed his will, will be beaten with many stripes. But he that did not know, and did commit things worthy of stripes, will be beaten with few stripes. For to whomsoever much is given, of him will they much require, and to whom they commit little, of him they will require the less.  For they who know the Godhead, and have found the way of life, the mysteries of light, and then have fallen into sin, shall be punished with greater chastisement than they who have not known the way of life.  Such shall return when their cycle is completed, and to them will be given space to consider, and amend their lives, and learning the mysteries , enter into the kingdom of light."    And thus, the cycles of life are explained in the Gospel of the Nazirenes in the words: "As Jesus sat by the west of the temple with his disciples, behold there passed some carrying one that was dead, to burial, and a certain one said to Him, Master, if a man die, shall he live again?  He answered and said, I am the resurrection and the life, I am the good, the beautiful, the true; if a man believe in me he shall not die, but live eternally. As in Adam all are bound to cycles of rebirth, so in the Messiah shall all be made alive. Blessed are the dead who die in me, and are made perfect in my image and likeness, for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them. They have overcome evil, and are made pillars in the temple of my God, and they go out no more, for they rest in the eternal.  For them that persist in evil there is no rest, but they go out and in, and suffer correction for ages, till they are made perfect. But for them that have done good and attained to perfection, there is endless rest and they go into life everlasting. They rest in the eternal.   Over them the repeated death and birth have no power, for them the wheel of the eternal revolves no more, for they have attained to the center, where is eternal rest, and the center of all things is God.   And one of the disciples asked him, How shall a man enter into the Kingdom? And he answered and said, If you don't make below as the above, and the left as the right, and the behind as the before, entering into the center and passing into the spirit, you will not enter into the kingdom of God."

It was the many verses such as the above that were contained in the more pure copies of the original Gospels, that prompted the Church Father Origen to proclaim: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).    And this is why Paul warns that the complacent believer who continues to sin after coming to the knowledge of the Gospel, "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).     And with the important teaching on the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection (Mt. 5:48) removed, there simply is no means left for the modern Christian believer to understand the core Gospel teachings which is imperative for them to comprehend. 

It is interesting to note that the most popular and used scripture of the earliest Gentile Christians was the Shepherd of Hermas (see Shepherd Intro), which was later suppressed by the Church of Rome because it was unacceptable from a pagan mindset and lifestyle.   And in addition to revealing the threefold nature of the scriptures (see Threefold), the understanding of caring for the poor, the widows and orphans, that is not at all understood today, is presented in this important writing (see Widows).  

The proper mindset with respect to the Laws, is expressed throughout the scriptures.   The Ten Commandments thus state: "You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's" (Exod 20:17 NKJ).   Why?   Because each man's life is the direct result of their own previous actions and accomplishments -- and that they fail to remember these pre-existent actions, is because they dwell in the "outer darkness".    And this is further confirmed in the Shepherd of Hermas which commands: "The expenditure of the heathen then practice not ye; for it is not convenient for you the servants of God.  But practice your own expenditure, in which ye can rejoice; and do not corrupt, neither touch that which is another man's, nor lust after it; for it is wicked to lust after other men's possessions."

By virtue of the Laws that orchestrated and dictated every part of the life that every man, woman and child is presently living, every person is at their present station in life, by virtue of the road they personally traveled to get there.   The conditions of your birth, as well as the life you are living, has been brought about, orchestrated, and maintained, by the Laws of God -- Laws that insure that each and every "...man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).

And everything that exists, not only exists for a higher reason -- but has been brought about and is the direct result of pre-existing causal reasons, which have become manifest in order to bring about a preordained result.    When you desire or lust after what the Laws of God has provided for your neighbor, or any other group of people, then you not only reject the Hand of God that provided in accord with your own needs, but you have sinned against God because you reject His Wisdom in what was provided for others. 

 

 

 

 

  The Corruption Of The Church: That the Bible has been corrupted by that segment of the Church which portrayed itself as Orthodox, is an easily provable fact (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).   That modern Church dogma which is derived from fourth century Pagan Rome is openly condemned as spiritual apostasy in the New Testament, is also easily proven (see http://TheLie.org ).   That the original promise of ultimate spiritual success is still present in the scriptures, is also a factual reality.    But that the teachings on how to bring about the transformation which fulfilled the original objectives of  "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” has been removed in the name of promoting the dogmatic dispensations of charlatan priests whose primary motive was the accumulation of mammon and political power, has in effect totally undermined and alienated the modern-day congregation of believers from attaining the original goals and objectives of the teachings of TheWay.   When the Gospels were given over into the hands of the Gentile Church, when disputes arose between different groups, the scribes altered the text of their scriptures in order to make them support their doctrines of belief.   The truth and the facts to the matter is very clearly expressed in the words of Prof. Bart D. Ehrman in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, where he warns that: "...theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy."  And this fact is confirmed to us  by Dr. F. H. Scrivener where he writes that: "In the second century we have seen too many instances of attempts to tamper with the text of Scripture, some merely injudicious, others positively dishonest". Scrivener states that "it is no less true to fact than paradoxical in sound, that the worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected, originated within 100 years after it was composed: and that Irenaeus and the African Fathers, and the whole Western, with a portion of the Syrian Church" used inferior manuscripts (F.H.Scrivener, Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament).    Dean Burgon quotes Gaius (AD175-200) who speaks of the source of corruptions that survive in the early papyri: "The Divine Scriptures these heretics have audaciously corrupted. Laying violent hands upon them, under pretense of correcting them." (Burgon, The Revision Revised, p. 323).   Eusebius (Eccleastical History), citing the second century Church Father Clement of Alexandria: "The worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected originated within one hundred years after it was composed."   In the words of Colwell (What is the Best New Testament Text?, p.119)  "The first two centuries witnessed the creations of the large number of variations known to scholars today.  In the manuscripts of the New Testament most variations, I believe, were made deliberately."   G.D. Kilpatrick (Atticism and the Text of the Greek New Testament, pp 125-131):  "Deliberate changes in all text types appear to antedate A.D. 200..as distinct from errors... all categories of deliberate alteration...  are present in both groups. Tatian is the last author of make deliberate changes. The vast majority of deliberate changes were older then A.D. 200.  They came into being in the period A.D. 50-200."

That anyone can open any Bible today and observe the extent of the corruption, is easily demonstrated.  Quoting from the article on Bible Corruption from the subheading on the removal of the verses on the children (see http://ebionite.com/BibleCorruption.htm#children ):  In the case of Luke, the blatant editing and rewriting of the scriptures is even more apparent. There are presently eight chapters separating the initial reference to the children in Luke 9:47-48, with the remaining verses pertaining to the children which now are found in the seventeenth chapter of Luke.   Without any discussion whatsoever regarding the children, Luke 17:1-2 reads: "Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offenses will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones".  What few Christians realize today is that during the second century the Gospel of Luke was put though an extensive rewrite in order to obscure certain teachings of Jesus and create an anti-Jewish environment.  Under the heading of Marcion (c.100-160) in the Encyclopedia Britannica we read that he was the "...founder of a Christian sect, born in Sinope, Pontus (now Sinop, Turkey), and probably the son of the bishop of that city. He went to Rome about 140", where he was for a time received as orthodox in his beliefs.  It is important to realize that Marcion received his anti-Jewish sentiment from his father who was an authority in the Gentile church, and that Marcion himself was viewed as being orthodox by many Christians.  The Britannica then goes on to write that "The Marcionite sect, highly ascetic and celibate, grew rapidly until it was second in strength only to the original church; it had churches and an Episcopal hierarchy and practiced the sacraments of baptism and the Eucharist… Marcion rejected the Old Testament and almost all of the New Testament… basing his teachings on ten of the Epistles of St. Paul and on an altered version of the Gospel of Luke… Marcionism flourished in the West until about the 4th century…"

What is very important for us to recognize today is the fact that Marcion in some ways was a predecessor of Martin Luther -- in that, both embraced Paul, and rejected the disciples of Jesus as being too Jewish.  What we also must understand is that the core reason that Marcion was eventually rejected was not because of his doctrine with regard to the acceptance of Paul and the rejection of the disciples of Christ, but because of his asceticism and celibacy that could not be universally embraced by the Gentile converts.  The Marcionite Churches, who are said to be "second in strength" to the original church, called themselves Christian, and enlisted under the banner of Christ.   Marcion, the son of a first-second century Christian Bishop, was said to have used an "altered version of the Gospel of Luke" -- and, like Luther, used the Epistles of Paul exclusively.   In the case of the Gospel of Luke, Marcion, as well as Irenaeus and Tertullian who attacked him on doctrinal grounds, each accused the others of altering the scriptures to support their own point of view.

   Christ Before Jesus: In the Gentile world prior to the time of Jesus, the word Christos or Christian was used in reference to an enlightened initiate in the Greek Mystery Religions -- which was basically Mithraic.  Those who authored the Epistles that came to bear the name of Paul, were drawn from Mithraic (Christian) Initiates.   Fundamentalist Christians who promote the King James Version of the Bible as being written directly by God, reject many of the newer translations.   When the Spiritual Christians who were called Gnostics pointed out that when Paul made reference to the Christ he was not speaking about the historical man Jesus, the Christians who called themselves Orthodox edited their copies of the scriptures by placing the name Jesus either before or after the word Christ.   It is easily demonstrated that in the original Gospel account, the man Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Law of God within himself (see The Ten Words).

A reality that the Christian world neither understands or wants to admit, is the fact that what came to be called Christianity existed before the time of Jesus -- as demonstrated at this link ( http://nazirene.org/unfaithful2.htm ).   Quoting the foregoing link:  Today we call ourselves by the Greek word Christian -- but have we ever questioned where the term originated? And what does it mean?  The New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge confirms that the name "originated outside of Christian and Jewish circles".  The Mercer Dictionary of the Bible states that: "By the late first and early second centuries the name ‘Christian,’ which early believers avoided using of themselves, was beginning to be accepted".   Why?   Because of the direct influence of the Mithraic initiates who called themselves Christian.   The Mithrac clergy adopted the Gospels -- corrupted them to make them support the tenets of this Greek Mystery religious system -- and portrayed the original disciples of TheWay as heretics who were too Jewish to understand the teachings of Jesus.  Then they created what has been called Replacement Theology -- which parallels that of Islam in many ways -- which states that Jesus was born among the Jews to condemn them, and then took his rightful place as the leader of the Christians (enlightened Mithrac initiates) -- which, according to their dogmatic mindset, meant that the Gentile Church was always the true Church.  Again, quoting the above link:  With regard to the historical people who were called the people of Christ before the time of Jesus, it did not mean anything to an enlightened Christian that the masses of people worshiped the sun, moon, stars or idols.  What is now Christmas is the rebirth of the sun-god -- and what is now Easter was the worship of the moon goddess Ishtar and the resurrection of the sun-god (see Easter vs Passover).  

That the initiates of the ancient mystery religions were called Christians prior to the time of Jesus is demonstrated in a letter from the Emperor Adrian to Servianus, written in 134 A.D., wherein it is stated: "Egypt, which you commended to me, my dearest Servianus, I have found to be wholly fickle and inconsistent, and continually wafted about by every breath of fame. The worshipers of Serapis are called Christians, and those who are devoted to the god Serapis, call themselves Bishops of Christ".   What is confirmed is that, with the advent of Jesus, the Christ or Christos was not a new term, and there were people throughout the empire who were called Christians prior to the time when the name came to be associated with the followers of Jesus.   More important, though, is the fact that they brought their ideas and beliefs pertaining to Christ into the religion of Jesus -- which teachings in their original form possessed an essence and spiritual reality that few of these Pagan Christians could perceive.  It wasn't that the original disciples were too Jewish to understand the teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- but rather, that a whole segment of the Gentile Church was too pagan and heathen to understand the teachings and objectives of the Gospels.  

Archaeologists have demonstrated that the word Christos, which we render Christ, has been found not only on Pagan temples, and used in relation to those who were said to be the sons of the Pagan gods, but the term was also engraved on tombstones and other Pagan artifacts prior to the time of Jesus.  In the Greek and Roman mystery religions of the time, the Christos was the Anointing of the Logos, and the Christian was the follower of the Anointed.  In the writings of Clement of Alexandria we find it explained that: "Those who lived according to the Logos were really Christians, though they have been thought to be atheists; as Socrates and Heraclitus were among the Greeks, and such as resembled them" (Strom. bk. i, ch xix).   Eusebius, the great historian of the early Church, admits that the religion that is called Christianity was known to the ancients (Eccl. Hist., 1, ch iv) and writes that the religion of Jesus had "...been known among all nations, nevertheless our life and our conduct, with our doctrines of religion, have not been lately invented by us, but from the first creation of man, so to speak, have been established by the natural understanding of divinely favored men of old... What then should prevent the confession that we who are of Christ practice one and the same mode of life and have one and the same religion as those divinely favored men of old? Whence it is evident that the perfect religion committed to us by the teaching of Christ is not new and strange, but, if the truth must be spoken, it is the first and the true religion".

Modern Christians who erroneously believe that what is today called Christianity started with Jesus, will be unable to relate to the words that "our doctrines of religion... have been established by the natural understanding... and [is] the same religion as those divinely favored men of old". The early Gentile Christians knew this fact, and it was for this reason that a copy of Plato’s Republic and other such writings was contained among the writings preserved in the recently discovered Nag Hammadi Library of early Christian writings.   St. Augustine wrote: "That, in our times, is the Christian religion, which to know and follow is the most sure and certain health, called according to that name, but not according to the thing itself, of which it is the name; for the thing itself which is now called the Christian religion, really was known to the ancients, nor was wanting at any time from the beginning of the human race, until the time when Christ came in the flesh, from whence the true religion, which had previously existed, began to be called Christian; and this in our days is the Christian religion, not as having been wanting in former times, but as having in later times received this name" (Opera Augustini, vol. i, p.12).   What this means is that the Jesus in the existing Gospels was converted by the Church to support the tenets of Mithraism, which was the universal religion of the empire.  The problem is that the original teachings of TheWay had absolutely nothing in common with what came to be called Christianity under Pagan Rome.

Those teachings in the scriptures that supported the original objectives of  "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” (see Original Gospels Objectives) were removed by the scribes of that segment of the Church which called itself Orthodox -- and the verses of the scriptures which supported the original spiritual objectives, were then portrayed and condemned as Gnostic interpolations.   Resulting in the reality that the modern congregation of believers have been spiritually disenfranchised by the dogmatic dispensations that became ingrained in the doctrines of the Church -- which dogmatic dispensations was necessary in the creation of a secularized religion where the "...political implications ...[were] crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion"  (see Pagles, The Gnostic Gospels).   That modern Christianity is faith-based, is the result of being deprived of the most important spiritual teachings and concepts which was removed from the tradition of scriptures which they received through the hands of the Church of Rome.   And that their doctrines of belief are openly condemned and rejected as spiritual apostasy by the original New Testament authors as demonstrated in the 10 Minute Test of The Lie, remains incomprehensible to the disenfranchised congregation of believers today.    In the same way that educational dropouts can't perform and function at the level envisioned in the creation of our system of schools and universities, neither can the spiritual dropouts even begin to perform and function at the level envisioned in the Gospels.   For their own worldly desire for mammon and political power, the charlatan priests moved the goal-posts of the original Gospel objectives, and peddled spurious dispensations that seduced the congregation of believers to imagine that they could dropout of the process at an elementary school level, and achieve the degree that is equal to that of a university graduate.   And in the same way that in Mao Tse-tung's Cultural Revolution he turned upon and executed the intellectual leaders who voiced opposition once he didn't need them anymore, so too did the Orthodox priests turn upon the spiritual core of the Church, once they achieved their desired positions of political power within the Church of Pagan Rome.   

 

 

   Questions: The proverbial question that is asked and not understood is this: Why is there evil in the world?   Atheists often point to the sufferings of believers and ask: If there is a God, why does bad things happen to seemingly good people?   What about when tragedies involve nice people?  Or seemingly innocent people suffer?  And even people who seemingly don’t deserve suffering?  A thirteen-year-old girl dies of leukemia.  A tornado kills a husband and wife in their home.  A young pastor is murdered by his wife.   A tsunami kills thousands of unsuspecting vacationers.  Why do "good people" become victims of a disease or a natural disaster?  Why do "good people" get caught in the crossfire of acts of "random" violence?  Why do otherwise innocent children get abused - mentally, emotionally and physically by an older person who is in a position of authority over them?   Why are children kidnapped and raped?  Why does the seemingly innocent suffer?    

What does the scriptures state?  Nothing in the universe happens by luck, chance, fortune, or accident, or by blind fate.  Everything that comes to pass in time was purposed by our God in eternity, and is brought to pass by his wise, adorable, good Providence.   Nothing comes to pass in time that God did not purpose in eternity, in sovereign predestination. Nothing comes to pass in time except that which God sovereignly brings to pass in his Providence. And that which God predestinated in eternity and brings to pass in his Providence is for the good of his elect, and the glory of his name. This is clearly and incontrovertibly the teaching of Holy Scripture (Ps. 76:10; Pro. 16:4, 9, 33; 21:1; Dan. 4:34, 35, 37; Isa. 46:9-11; Rom. 11:33-36).    Further, when rightly understood, what man portrays as natural selection, human nature, animal compulsion and/or natural occurrences, is merely the unfoldment and manifestation of the movement of the Laws which were brought into being in the Alpha of Creation (see Spiritual Americans and the Laws of Nature and Nature's God).

While an immature faith-based believer who has yet to begin to seriously embrace the teachings of TheWay will remain ignorant of the forces and construct of the Laws that bring what appears to be evil and bad things into the world, a spiritually mature Christian would be able to immediately answer the above questions with a resounding rationale and detail, that even the most discerning critic would be amazed by the completeness of the explanation.   But herein lies the crux of the problem -- i.e., because the congregation of believers have been robbed of the knowledge of the Laws and the higher objectives of life itself by a series of secular rulers and emperors and their pseudo-clergy and priests,  it is impossible for the mind to attain the necessary state of maturity that the Gospel was intended to bring about in the lives of the believers.   So mankind continues to dwell in an abyss of ignorance that has wrought needless suffering and hardships upon even the most innocent of lives. 

  The Biblical Code: It is important to understand the reality presented in the Gospels when Jesus spoke to the multitudes in parables -- a system of allegories designed to conceal the inner meaning from the multitude of hearers, while permitting only a select group to understand the esoteric truths that were being revealed (see Mystery Of The Gospel).   And when his disciples asked Jesus why he spoke in enigmatic parables, and did not speak plainly to the people?   Jesus said of his disciples: “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12 NIV).   And that the word translated secret, is the same word translated mystery at the foregoing link, and makes reference to an esoteric knowledge that is beyond man's organic "natural" comprehension, is a reality that few modern believers or the critics of religion have been able to come to terms with (see An Inconvenient Truth).   Yet, in a state of spiritual denial, the modern Church attempts to ignore the implications of what these words convey.    In explanation of the above words of Jesus, the Wycliffe Bible Commentary writes that: “…the initiate was instructed in the esoteric teaching... which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”

What is not at all understood today is the fact that the symbolism employed within the parables and scriptures were designed to act as catalysts which initiated impressions and intuitive knowledge from within the mind of the person -- originating from the other side of the barrier between the person in this physical world, and their higher soul-self that dwells in a non-physical spiritual world (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image) -- and those who have developed their mind and being through "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” (see The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind) -- are able to receive and comprehend the spiritual meaning of the symbols of both the parables and scriptures.    Which means that everything is dependent upon the necessary development of mind -- and especially those intuitive spheres which enable the person to connect with their soul and inner source of being that exists beyond the barrier of the physical -- and this development through "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” is necessary to fulfill the Gospel teaching on The One Teacher which the disciple Peter portrayed as The True Prophet (see Taught In Parables - The Key Of Knowledge).    And that the whole of this world which is blind to the cause and the Laws that bring about and orchestrates all events in this world -- a condition of blind ignorance that Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- is what necessitates the opening the inner door to learn the true meaning of the events of this world, as well as the true meaning of the catalyst symbols used in the scriptures -- i.e., the warning of Peter: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without" (see Flawed Human Linear Reasoning).   What this means is that no one -- i.e., either believer or unbeliever -- will understand the true spiritual meaning of the scriptures -- a meaning that is beyond organic human comprehension -- unless the individual person has been enlightened by what the disciples portrayed as the One Teacher and True Prophet, as to the true meaning.   Why?   Because "...spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”  -- and the very purpose of both the scriptures, and the Laws that control all events in this world, is to bring this higher understanding about in the life of the worthy seeker/disciple.  @@@

It is this same rejection of human linear reasoning and the quest to learn from the True Prophet the meaning of the scriptures, that develops the intuitive spheres of mind and prepares the seeker/believer to understand the Forces and Laws that bring about and orchestrate all events of this world.   In the same way that we have the ability to learn and acquire the ability to read -- and we do so by learning to interpret the symbols of letters and words -- all of life is written in a language that we must learn to interpret the symbols of -- and I often portray this as the language of the soul that the Key of Knowledge must be applied to.    Because the Atheist and/or the linear-rational minded person who sees only the outer physical aspects of this material world, remains blind to both the causal factors of what is experienced -- as well as the Laws and Forces which present all events to each person -- and remains ignorant of the choices presented to him/her within the labyrinth of one's scripted life -- the Atheist, the linear-rational, as well as the person who remains undeveloped,  believes these encounters are the result of accident, luck, the unknown, human nature, animal compulsion and/or natural occurrences and selection.   This is of course a lie promoted by blind pseudo-authorities who have been alienated from their own higher soul-nature -- and as such, they lead the people in the wrong direction.   Those few who develop the intuitive spheres of mind are able to not only escape what Jesus portrayed as The Prison and the blind ignorance of the Outer Darkness -- a condition whereby the person sees only what is portrayed as the illusions of Plato's Cave -- but also perceive the causal factors of each encounter -- and the Laws which present to us our choices within the labyrinth.  Part of us -- i.e., our higher soul-self that is not manifest in this world -- not only knows the meaning of the symbols of life -- but also the causal factors initiated by the Laws which are presented to us in the manner of a labyrinth that scripts every aspect of our life.  

The purpose of this world is the evolution and advancement of the soul of man -- and one of the primary objectives that is necessary to bring this evolution about in the reality of the individual, is to develop the intuitive spheres of mind that permits one to perceive and comprehend what lies beyond the curtain of the "outer darkness", and begin to develop the ability to understand the whole encounter of life that the individual experiences.   The scriptures are written in a series of allegorical symbols (see An Inconvenient Truth) that act as a catalyst which has the potential to bridge the inner divide between the person we are in this world, and our higher soul-reality -- and as the person begins to advance beyond the physical organic mind, they begin to perceive that all of material nature is itself imbued with symbols of mind and consciousness impressed into the forums of nature that we interact with (see The Allusion Of The Forms Of Matter).     And when it is understood that the Source of all that we see in the material world is in the (un-seen Etheric) Field that modern physicist have now proven surrounds all physical forms in this world (see The Folly Of Darwinism -- and Science Proves Religion) -- then as the seeker begins to unlock the allegorical language of the scriptures which act as catalysts within his own mind and being, the same esoteric reality of nature itself begins to unfold to the mind of the disciple of TheWay -- i.e., (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..." (Gospel of Thomas).  

  The Spiritual Castration Of The Church - The Removal Of The Teachings On The Preexistent Soul:  Where the 4th century Church of Constantine put to death the Spirit of the Church (see above The Corruption Of The Church), it's Spiritual Castration which totally alienated the congregation of believers from comprehending even what was left of a corrupted and spiritually sanitized New Testament (see Bible Corruption), was implemented in the 6th century.   As an example of how the Christian world was literally forced to adhere to the dogma of the secular priests and emperors, when the doctrine of the pre-existent soul was outlawed by the Emperor Justinian, the Britannica confirms that the emperor then forced his will upon the Church when he "...banished the pope to Egypt , and afterwards to an island, until he accepted the Council, which he ultimately did" (see http://Ebionite.com/reincarnation.htm ).    After relenting to the will of the emperor, and finely accepting the decree of the emperor after seven months of imprisonment, it is reported that the pope met with an untimely death before he could even return to the Vatican.    And while it is true that most of the modern-day doctrines of the Church was forced upon the Christian world in this same violent manner -- and the vast majority of modern-day believers are all victims of what has come to be known as the Stockholm Syndrome -- the removal of this important original teaching has had such far ranging implications, that it has become impossible for modern believers and critics alike to even begin to get a valid sense of the original Gospel meaning and objectives.    The modern Church is faith-based -- founded upon blind-faith -- because the reader lacks the necessary tools to even get a sense of the very purpose of the original teachings of TheWay.   And this secular imposed intervention where the Christian world was literally forced to succumb to the decree of the emperor, has had the far ranging effect of spiritually castrating the Church.

What the Bible states is that the lives of each person is orchestrated and scripted by the Laws -- and yet, without an understanding of the Laws that the scriptures states controls all events in this world, the very purpose and meaning of life itself will remain a perpetual enigma -- as will the scriptures.   Jesus himself taught that not even a sparrow can “...fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father” (Matt 10:29 NIV).   And in the very next verse Jesus applies this same reality to man and states that every hair is accounted for -- i.e., "And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered" -- and yet, the Christian world remains totally ignorant with respect to the workings of the Laws that orchestrate and brings about all events that transpire in this world.

Christians maintain that they are saved by faith totally apart from their actions and works -- and their salvation is guaranteed from the moment they accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.   But is this the original teachings of Jesus?   The New Testament portrays this dogma

Reply:  The Flawed Doctrine Of Perpetual Redemption totally ignores the many statements by Paul where he warns: "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).   Why did Paul make such a statement?   Because the original Gospel teachings in their original form was one of spiritual transformation -- and those who willfully sin after coming to the knowledge of the Gospel message are not only unbelievers and apostates to the teachings of the Gospels, but in Paul's words these counterfeit believers crucify the Son of God afresh -- and, in total opposition to what the Churches preach, "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."   These, and other such spiritual concepts, were totally unacceptable to the fourth century heathen Church of Rome -- and while these few passages continue to exist, the scriptures were corrupted (see http://BibleCorruption.com ) in order to make the Gospels support the doctrines of a series of Roman Emperors who ruled over the Church from the fourth century onward.     That the Church has abandoned the original teachings of Jesus -- to the degree that when it is proven that the fourth century Church even edited and corrupted the very words of God spoken to man (see http://TheTenWords.com ) -- means that until the Church itself repents of this great sin against the Holy Spirit, they will remain under a cloud of ignorance in an exile state in a Spiritual Diaspora.   What does the Apostle of faith say?   To the Romans he warns: "Do not be arrogant, but be afraid.  For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.  Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off" (Rom 11:20-22 NIV).    Because the Christians entered into a covenant with Pagan Rome -- installing the emperor as the head of the Church -- and in a state of absolute arrogance, hunted down and murdered all who did not accept the religious doctrines of the emperor -- even editing and corrupting the very words of God spoken to mankind -- the Church has not only been "cut off" -- but the Christians themselves dwell in a Spiritual Diaspora under the cloud of spiritual ignorance.   

  Peter Warns That Christians Are Worse Off Than The Unbelievers:   How can Peter warn that the fate of complacent Christians is in fact worse off than those who had never come into contact with the Gospel Message?   Thus, we have a great void that modern Christians totally lack the insight to understand.   An honest Christian would recognize that the words of Peter are so contrary to modern-day belief, that these words should literally haunt every person who calls themselves a Christian believer: "If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: A dog returns to its vomit, and, A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud" (2 Pet 2:20-22 NIV).   Where the modern Church promotes the doctrine that they are saved by Grace regardless of the manner in which they live their lives, Peter not only states that this doctrine is in grave error, but correctly states that: "It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them."  Every Christian should ask themselves: How Can This Be???  How can those who have never known the teachings of Christ, be better off than those who having heard, and are complacent towards those teachings?    It would appear that Peter is stating that those who had never heard the Gospel message -- and had themselves committed much sin -- will in the hereafter inherit a more lofty place in the Kingdom than the complacent believers.   

Christians promote the doctrine that only those who believe can be saved -- and here Peter is stating the opposite is true -- and that those people who claim to believe, and fall back to their old ways where they embrace the culture and ways of this world, will in fact be worse off after they have come to believe, than before they began to believe.  Moreover, the shepherds and blind guides that Peter is making reference to, are those who preach the modern doctrine of using the Gospel as a license to dwell in perpetual sin that is promoted in churches today -- i.e., "This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature..." (2 Peter 2:10 NIV).   Because these false shepherds even if they are sincere, fail to understand the reality of what Jesus meant when he used the terms Whole, and Complete, they preach the "...promise [of] freedom [in their doctrine of salvation by faith and grace alone], while they themselves are slaves of depravity"    In what can only be in total opposition to what Christians today believe, Peter states that it would have been better for the entry-level believers to have never heard of the Gospel, than to have heard, and then fall prey to the false shepherds who promise them freedom, but blindly lead the believers into the proverbial ditch.  And thus, there is simply no means for the modern Christian who believes the doctrines of the Church, to even begin to understand what Peter is making reference to.

   The Gravely Flawed Serf/Peasant/Subject Mindset: One of the most important elements to the core New Covenant Gospel teachings is the brotherhood of all of mankind -- not in a philosophical manner -- but rather, that each and every one of us are equally the prodigal sons of our Heavenly Father.     With respect to the doctrine of the Fall of Man that is presented by Paul -- he confirms that it was God that forced mankind to wander in an almost lost state of mind in order to bring about the next stage of birth: "For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now" (Rom 8:19-22 NKJ) -- i.e., all of mankind is equally the offspring or children of God as seen in the words: "...because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God."    And this is why after completing the journey from the Alpha to the Omega, the historical Jesus portrayed all of mankind as his brothers in the words: “Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God’” (John 20:17 NIV).   The original Gospel message teaches that the historical person of Jesus was a man, just like all of mankind, who overcame and fulfilled the Law of God within himself to the degree that he became One with God -- or, the First Prodigal Son to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination (see Gate Of Eden).  

What does the scriptures state: "Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, 'I said, You are gods '?" (John 10:34 NKJ).   If Jesus confirmed the Law which declared that we are gods, then what is our true nature? When the first century Christian Justin Martyr quoted the 82nd chapter of Psalms from his scriptures, the sacred writings that he used did not read as ours does today. “God standeth in the congregation of gods”, Justin wrote, "I said, Ye are gods, and are all children of the Most High...” (Dialogue of Justin).   In addition to Justin, this verse is also found translated in this same manner in the works of Tertullian, Origen and Cyprian.  Thus, we have the witness of four of the earliest of Christians that “God standeth in the congregation of gods”, when the scriptures are speaking about us.  Justin then goes on to explain that all men were made like God, “free from suffering and death, provided that they kept His commandments, and were deemed deserving of the name of His sons, and yet they, becoming like Adam and Eve, work out death for themselves... thereby it is demonstrated that all men are deemed worthy of becoming ‘gods’, and of having power to become sons of the Highest; and shall be each by himself judged and condemned like Adam and Eve”.

Even our very own Bibles at one time more clearly taught this same concept. In the third century 1 John 3:2 read somewhat differently than it does in our present translations. Quoting from Origen’s Contra Celsum we read that “it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that when He shall appear, we shall be like God, and shall see Him as He is”.   With regard to our becoming like God, Origen then writes regarding Matthew 5:48 that “...the virtue of man and of God is identical. And therefore we are taught to become ‘perfect,’ as our Father in heaven is perfect”.

The great truth that has been continually expressed by both Jewish and Christian visionaries is that the knowledge of the mysteries of God and the Divine Plan begins with the knowledge of ourselves as the Prodigal Sons of our Heavenly Father. It is for this reason that the second-century Church Father Clement of Alexandria said that it is “…the greatest of all lessons to know one's self. For if one knows himself, he will know God; and knowing God, he will be made like God… and that man becomes God, since God so wills”.    In his treaties on The Soul and the Resurrection, St Gregory writes that “the Resurrection is no other thing than 'the re-constitution of our nature in its original form’”, and states that there will come a time “…when the complete whole of our race shall have been perfected from the first man to the last”.  This statement should provoke great thought in the reader who is under the misconception that our Heavenly Father would destroy or forever cut off one of his sons or daughters who are lost in this world.   If the whole of our race will one day be perfected from the first man to the last, then there are many grave misconceptions on the part of believers today.

The reason these great truths are no longer the focus of the modern church is best captured in the words of A. Powell Davies: “Biblical scholars”, he writes, ”were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).   What Davies was referring to was the fact that in the fourth century, the Church of Constantine so altered the focus of the teachings of the New Covenant, that what we call Christianity today has its doctrinal legacy of birth in Pagan Rome, and has little in common with the religion that the Son of God revealed to man at the beginning of our Common Era.  

Unlike the 4th century church of Constantine that declared Jesus to be God, the original disciples and first followers of Jesus saw him as a man who lived such a holy and consecrated life (see Ebionite HomePage), that he became At-One with God -- and thus became the Divine Pattern that all men must emulate.   Their view of him was that he was the firstborn -- or the first resurrected to the Kingdom -- the first of the prodigal sons to return home from among us, his brothers.   This is especially seen in the words of the Lord where he said: “For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother” (Matt 12:50 KJV).

It is plain in the scriptures that Jesus is “a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting” (1 Tim 1:16 KJV).   A pattern is not something that you casually believe in -- but rather, something that you mold your life after.   Moreover, if Jesus is the pattern, then Jesus is the very standard by which all men are to be judged.   Why?   Because if Jesus was a man who was able to perfect himself by fulfilling the Royal Law within himself, and be resurrected into the Kingdom, then all our excuses for leading carnal and immoral lives are without merit -- i.e., because this same standard would then be expected of us -- the Lord's brothers and sisters.  

The Apostle tells us: “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children” (Eph 5:1 NAS).   If we were created as inferior beings who were nothing more than the natural offspring of Adam and Eve, as Christians believe today, then the Apostle would never have told a race of inferior beings to imitate God.   The basis of Paul's words is seen in the fact that man is created in the image and likeness of God, and is God's own offspring.   If we were inferior beings, neither would God command us: “ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy” (Lev 11:45 KJV), if we did not possess this innate ability.   What is written here is no different than what St. Gregory said when he wrote that we must walk the “path of an exact imitation of Him Who leads the way to salvation” -- which path in the words of St. Nazianzen, reveals to us our true nature and makes “us like God”.

When a child becomes an adult, is he inferior to his parent?   In like manner, when the prodigal son returns home to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination, and matures to his full spiritual potential and stature, is he inferior to his father?   What is important is for us to realize that we do not know our true potential, and neither do we understand the process that gives us the ability to “imitate God”, and makes us “like God”.   The undeniable Christian Truth that no one who claims to be a believer should deny, is that we don't know the answer to these questions.   How can we?   As Christians, we have faith that Jesus meant what he said when he promised that he would teach us -- and reveal to us all the Mysteries of God -- if we become his faithful disciple.   

This great truth is seen in Origen's reply to Celsus where he wrote: “By participation in the Son of God one is adopted as a son… by participation in the Holy Spirit is a man rendered holy and spiritual…”.   The problem is seen in the fact that the Church totally alienated themselves from the knowledge and awareness of that principle called the Son of God that dwells within each of us (see The Logos).   Neither can the Church comprehend the reality that this Indwelling Logos or Mind of God, is the One Teacher that Jesus commanded to seek out and learn from (see The Search For The True Prophet).    And that this innate ability to seek out and learn directly from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet, is the only means for the lost prodigal sons and daughters to acquire the knowledge of TheWay -- which will free them from enslavement to the ignorance of what Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of this, the Far Country -- which Paul portrayed as the god of this world. 

The power of the Citizen of the Far Country which totally controls the organic people of the earth, is in his ability to shackle the individual in the abyss of ignorance -- portrayed by Jesus as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- also portrayed as Plato's Cave (see Cave) -- and the means to escape the shackles of ignorance can only be revealed to those who seek to learn directly from the True Prophet (see The Spiritual Disenfranchisement Of The Mind).     Paul makes reference to the wisdom of the wise of this world coming to naught -- and this is because man's own higher soul and spiritual reality is simply inconceivable to his "natural" organic physical consciousness (see Mystery Of The Gospel).

The Gospel of Thomas declares: "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world".   It does not say to Know God -- because it is impossible to Know God, without first knowing one's self.    Those who have not themselves yet uncovered their true spiritual nature as the Sons and Daughters of God, perceive sacred truths in forms, types, and allegories -- because they, being carnal,  “cannot comprehend” the mysteries of God that awaits them.   When God, in the words of St. Nazianzen, no longer is an “object of wonder”, but rather an “object of desire” -- and we, desiring to be purified from the defilements of this world, make ourselves fit vessels for the Lord to indwell, the Spirit, according to St. Nazianzen, reveals to us our true nature, and the revelation of this manifest Sacred Knowledge makes “us like God; so that when we have thus become like Himself, God may, to use a bold expression, hold converse with us as Gods, being united to us, and that perhaps to the same extent as He already knows those who are known to Him”.  St. Nazianzen then writes that “the Divine Nature then is boundless and hard to understand” by those who are yet carnal and think as natural beings of this world.

Who among us has attained to such a level of Godliness that God will “converse with us as Gods”?   It is for this reason that Origen admits that the disciple of Christ knows full well that growing to spiritual maturity is not a simple chore.   In the same way that a fetus and infant cannot grow to maturity in the cycle of a day, neither can the soul grow to its Godly potential in the cycle of one lifetime.   In the same way that a child grows to a man in steps, Jesus taught (see The Unanswerable Question) the soul has transmigrated and inhabited many bodies of flesh in its quest for this necessary level of Godliness.   It is also the true disciple of Christ who knows that the Lord Jesus came to save us from our fate of being lost in this world -- in subjection to the Law, ever reincarnating in useless lives of suffering and spiritual depravation -- but carnal man, refusing to follow in Jesus' footsteps, continually chooses the darkness of this world over the Light of the kingdom.

The question the modern believer must ask is this: Do you truly believe the words of our Lord when He said: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6 NIV)?   Yet, because the Church has spiritually castrated itself by its adherence to (pagan) manmade doctrines of imperial emperors and priests of the shadow church of Pagan Rome, the people are incapable of comprehending that while their brother the historical Jesus is representative of the pattern, it is the Indwelling Logos/Son of God that is the Source of both all Truth and Life.   That this fact was declared in the original Gospel message, is proven in The Ten Words.

If you believe these words, then you have only one option: You must be ready to cast off the manmade doctrines of error that have become infused into modern Christianity, and become a genuine disciple of the Light.   If you truly believe, then you must begin your search for the real Jesus.   The true Christians are not those who believe in the antichrist of Constantine or the very carnal and Pagan doctrines of the Roman Church -- but rather, those who realize that they must have Jesus the Nazirene, and no other.   True Christians know that it is not enough to believe, they must believe the Truth -- which Truth can only be received directly from the Lord.  Further, you must receive and become your true self -- i.e., the Being of Light, while you are still alive in the physical body -- as demonstrated in the words from the Gospel Of Philip: "If anyone becomes a child of the bridal chamber, he will receive the light.  If anyone does not receive it while he is here, he will not be able to receive it in the other place. He who will receive that light will not be seen, nor can he be detained. And none shall be able to torment a person like this, even while he dwells in the world. And again when he leaves the world, he has already received the truth in the images. The world has become the Aeon (eternal realm), for the Aeon is fullness for him. This is the way it is: it is revealed to him alone, not hidden in the darkness and the night but hidden in a perfect day and a holy light."

It is impossible for most Christians to succeed in the manifestation of the pattern (of Jesus) within themselves, because they are of a peasant/serf/subject mindset.    They attempt to worship God as if he were a worldly ego-driven king -- telling him how wonderful he is.   Thus, they see themselves as subjects that must appease and glorify the king -- in contradistinction to imitating the pattern that that the historical man Jesus perfected in his own life and return as the first prodigal son to totally fulfill the Law within himself -- which fulfilling of the Law enables each prodigal son and daughter to learn directly from the Indwelling Son of God, and grow to their own full maturity in Messiah/Christ.   Thus, Paul writes to the congregation at Galatians: "My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you" (Gal 4:19-20 NIV) -- and if a believer fulfilled the requirements of second birth by the mere profession of words as Christians believe and practice today, then Paul never would have stated these words to the Galatians.    And that because of the modern Church's subject/peasant mindset of appeasement with their lips, that fails to embrace the necessary pattern that enables them to fulfill the Law within themselves, they fail to understand and bring about the Spiritual Birth from the Virgin (see Virgin Birth).     Thus, they fail to understand that both the wives of Abraham are an allegory -- as well as the account of the Virgin Birth of Jesus -- and they remain totally ignorant of the meaning of Paul's words when he wrote: "Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?  For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a 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) -- an allegory which portrays the first stage of birth which is of the flesh, and the second stage of birth which is of the promise and the Spirit -- and is presented in the allegory of the Virgin Birth (see Virgin Birth).   Further, it is impossible to bring about this next stage of birth apart from what is portrayed in the name of Joseph (see Joseph - The Generative Power Of The Kingdom).    And because the Church as in their adoption of pagan dogma and systems of belief totally alienated themselves from the spiritual meaning of the Gospels, the words of the Gospel of Philip presents their spiritually disenfranchised fate -- i.e., "Those who say that first they shall die and (then) they shall arise are confused. If they do not first receive the resurrection (while) they live, they will not receive anything (when) they die"
(see Gospel Of Philip).
 

  Lawlessness:  Ignorance of the Laws breeds lawlessness -- a condition that Jesus condemns below -- and even believers who prophesy and work miracles who are lawless, Jesus rejects.   Lawlessness breeds what Jesus portrayed as a type of imprisonment -- a condition where one is required to repay all debts, before being released from imprisonment.    Jesus portrayed each man as being in the process of building a House -- i.e., "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.  Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.  Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.  You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?  Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.  A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.  Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  Therefore by their fruits you will know them.  Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.  Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'  And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'  Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:  and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.  Now everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:  and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall" (Matt 7:13-27 NKJ).  

The building of a House must be accomplished within the construct of the Laws -- i.e., "...Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.  Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'  And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'"

 

  Christian Denial of Reality: Christians maintain that if the doctrine of the pre-existent soul were true, that it would be taught in their Bibles.   Yet, they are in absolute denial with respect to the reality that the Bible was edited and corrupted in order to make it support the doctrines of the fourth century Church of Constantine.   Absolute proof of this is overwhelmingly documented in the article on Biblical Corruption (see Bible Corruption), but the Christian world continues to remain in denial of the facts.   Modern day Christian doctrine rests upon the premise that God preserved the Bible in an absolute infallible and pure state, in order that all men should know the (historical) truth and believe in Jesus as the Son of God -- and the Trinitarian Godhead.  Their doctrinal position is that if God permitted the Bible to have been altered, then the present day church could not be genuine.  Based upon this dogmatic presumption that the Christian Church must be maintained in order for man to be saved, they reason that God would not allow the written word of the scriptures to be corrupted. The Truth is that if the Bible had not been corrupted, it would never have been adopted by the Greeks and Romans -- so just the opposite is true with respect to what Christians believe.   Thus, modern Christians cling to this doctrine of biblical purity -- ignoring overwhelming evidence to the contrary -- evidence that demonstrates conclusively that our Bible has been severely altered and edited -- because they fail to grasp the very foundational principles of the New Covenant itself -- principles that are not historical, but spiritual.  It is not until we understand that the Bible is a road-map that leads us to the Gate of the Kingdom (see http://GateOfEden.com ), and the Word and Torah of God is in fact written in our hearts -- rather than a final revelation from God to man -- that we are able to even begin to come to terms with the Spiritual Gospel of Messiah/Christ that can never be corrupted.

What Christians fail to understand is the fact that the most important and spiritual scriptures were never even given into the hands of the Gentiles who were both too heathen to comprehend the spiritual essence of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay, and the fact that even as early as the first century the Gentiles were editing their scriptures to make them conform to the doctrines of belief that they already embraced.   An important truth is contained in the Epistle of Peter to James where it is stated:  "Hear me, brethren and fellow-servants. If we should give the books to all indiscriminately, and they should be corrupted by any daring men, or be perverted by interpretations, as you have heard that some have already done, it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error.   Wherefore it is better that they should be with us, and that we should  communicate them with all the fore-mentioned care to those who wish to live piously, and to save others."

Those outside of the original Ebionite/Nazirene core of disciples and followers of Yeshua/Jesus, were quick to corrupt all the copies of the scriptures that were given to them.   And this fact is confirmed to us  by Dr. F. H. Scrivener where he writes that: "In the second century we have seen too many instances of attempts to tamper with the text of Scripture, some merely injudicious, others positively dishonest". Scrivener states that "it is no less true to fact than paradoxical in sound, that the worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected, originated within 100 years after it was composed: and that Irenaeus and the African Fathers, and the whole Western, with a portion of the Syrian Church" used inferior manuscripts (F.H.Scrivener, Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament).    Dean Burgon quotes Gaius (AD175-200) who speaks of the source of corruptions that survive in the early papyri: "The Divine Scriptures these heretics have audaciously corrupted. Laying violent hands upon them, under pretense of correcting them." (Burgon, The Revision Revised, p. 323).   Eusebius (Eccleastical History), citing the second century Church Father Clement of Alexandria: "The worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected originated within one hundred years after it was composed."   In the words of Colwell (What is the Best New Testament Text?, p.119)  "The first two centuries witnessed the creations of the large number of variations known to scholars today.  In the manuscripts of the New Testament most variations, I believe, were made deliberately."   G.D. Kilpatrick (Atticism and the Text of the Greek New Testament, pp 125-131):  "Deliberate changes in all text types appear to antedate A.D. 200..as distinct from errors... all categories of deliberate alteration...  are present in both groups. Tatian is the last author to make deliberate changes. The vast majority of deliberate changes were older then A.D. 200.  They came into being in the period A.D. 50-200."

It can be easily understood why the Ebionite/Nazirene disciples of Jesus not only did not give the Greek converts who edited and corrupted the text of their scriptures, but withheld the most spiritual and important to be preserved in their care.   Thus, Peter writes to James: "Knowing, my brother, your eager desire after that which is for the advantage of us all, I beg and beseech you not to communicate to any one of the Gentiles the books of my preachings which I sent to you, nor to any one of our own tribe before trial; but if any one has been proved and found worthy, then to commit them to him, after the manner in which Moses delivered his books to the Seventy who succeeded to his chair.  Wherefore also the fruit of that caution appears even till now. For his countrymen keep the same rule of monarchy and polity everywhere, being unable in any way to think otherwise, or to be led out of the way of the much-indicating Scriptures. For, according to the rule delivered to them, they endeavor to correct the discordances of the Scriptures, if any one, haply not knowing the traditions, is confounded at the various utterances of the prophets. Wherefore they charge no one to teach, unless he has first learned how the Scriptures must be used. And thus they have amongst them one God, one law, one hope."

The Gentiles not only severely corrupted the copies of the scriptures that they were given, but more importantly what Peter states is true with respect to their ignorance of the "traditions" within which the whole framework of the scriptures are composed, and like the Sadducees and Pharisees before them who Yeshua condemned for throwing away the Key of Knowledge, they did not know the manner in which "...the Scriptures must be used" -- and this remains true even in our present day. 

In the case of the Gospel of the Nazirenes which was reportedly hidden away from the corrupters in a monastery (see Intro To The Gospel Of The Nazirenes), we can see an important concept that was removed from the text of John 9:1 when the disciples asked if the man's blindness was caused by the sins he committed in a previous life prior to being born: "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."   And this is exactly the same as stating: "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7 NKJ).  

  The Walking Dead: In the Revelation we find the phrase "go out no more" -- as seen in the words: "He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more" (Rev 3:12 NKJ).   What does it mean that the person who overcomes -- i.e., overcomes what -- will go out no more?   I have never seen a Christian Bible commentary even mention this important verse.   Why?   Because if what is being said is true, and we go in and out (of our inner spiritual soul-reality) until which time we overcome, then this reality does not support modern Christian doctrine.   Yet, in other scriptures such as the Gospel of the Nazirenes that were not edited by the Church of Rome, this going in and out is made very clear: "As Yeshua sat by the west of the temple with his disciples, behold there passed some carrying one that was dead, to burial, and a certain one said to Him, Master, if a man die, shall he live again?  He answered and said, I am the resurrection and the life, I am the good, the beautiful, the true; if a man believe in me he shall not die, but live eternally. As in Adam all are bound to cycles of rebirth, so in the Messiah shall all be made alive. Blessed are the dead who die in me, and are made perfect in my image and likeness, for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them. They have overcome evil, and are made pillars in the temple of my God, and they go out no more, for they rest in the eternal.  For them that persist in evil there is no rest, but they go out and in, and suffer correction for ages, till they are made perfect. But for them that have done good and attained to perfection, there is endless rest and they go into life everlasting. They rest in the eternal.  Over them the repeated death and birth have no power, for them the wheel of the eternal revolves no more, for they have attained to the center, where is eternal rest, and the center of all things is God. And one of the disciples asked him, How shall a man enter into the Kingdom?" And he answered and said, If you don't make below as the above, and the left as the right, and the behind as the before, entering into the center and passing into the spirit, you will not enter into the kingdom of God."

When we pose the question that is presented to us in the Revelation: If the man who does not “overcometh... shall [again] go out”, then it is reasonable for us to ask what kind of life does he go out into?   It is in fact this very question that each of us should ask ourselves which the Church Father Origen, who was a renowned biblical scholar prior to the rewrite of the scriptures in the fourth century under the Roman Emperor Constantine, Origen explained about the process of going in and out when he wrote that “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).  

 

The Great Christian Quagmire

After Removing The Teachings On Reincarnation

What Is Left In the Scriptures

Makes God Into An Irrational Monster!!!


  Christians Are The Author Of Their Own Ignorance 

One of the paramount aspects of righteousness and good, is that one conducts themselves in a fair and evenhanded manner.   If the scriptures are correct in the places where it states that The LORD detests differing weights, and dishonest scales do not please him” (Prov 20:23 NIV), wouldn't the Lord himself treat all men with the same fairness?   Innately, Christians believe that God is fair and impartial -- but from a biblical perspective, doctrinally they cannot demonstrate the validity of their beliefs.   One of the fundamental doctrines of the Bible is that the person you are today was predetermined by God -- not merely at a time before you came into this life -- but at a time prior to creation and the formation of the earth.   If the person you are today was predetermined by God prior to even the first act of Creation, you must then ask how much of your own life is of your own choosing?  

For those who believe that they have made wise choices in their lives, in the Calvinistic and Augustinian doctrine of preordination -- a doctrine which they are able to demonstrate conclusively by using the Epistles of Paul -- there is no fundamental difference between those who are doomed and those who will be saved, with the exception that God so wills their fate.   The supreme Disposer”, writes Calvin, then makes way for his own predestination, when depriving those whom he has reprobated of the communication of his light, he leaves them in blindness. Every day furnishes instances of the latter case, and many of them are set before us in Scripture. Among a hundred to whom the same discourse is delivered, twenty, perhaps, receive it with the prompt obedience of faith; the others set no value upon it, or deride, or spurn, or abominate it. If it is said that this diversity is owing to the malice and perversity of the latter, the answer is not satisfactory: for the same wickedness would possess the minds of the former, did not God in his goodness correct it. And hence we will always be entangled until we call in the aid of Paul's question, ‘Who maketh thee to differ?' (1 Corinthians 4:7,) intimating that some excel others, not by their own virtue, but by the mere favor of God”.

From a biblical perspective of what Calvin wrote, the true statement that totally escapes his reasoning would be: “…we will always be entangled until” we come to understand the Will of God with respect to who maketh thee to differ?”.   What we see in Calvin's words is the manifestation of a secular, carnal religion, that bears the name of Christ, rather than a Spiritual Religion that if the very essence of the Living Word of Christ.   Calvin, one of the foremost authorities in the founding of the Protestant Church, did not possess the answers to the biblical paradoxes -- and accepts these mysteries as unknowable, only because he has embraced a static faith that is spiritually dead -- spiritually dead, because crucial bible verses and teachings were either removed or corrupted by the Church of Rome.   Yet, not only do many Christians today continue to embrace Calvin's doctrine, but those who reject what he writes, also reject a major biblical doctrine.   Why?   Because even Jesus confirmed that all things are predetermined by the Father -- to the degree, that not even a sparrow can fall to the ground apart from the Will of God -- i.e., "Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father's will" (Matt 10:29 NKJ)

With regard to the assertion of the Apostle that it is not of our own choosing that we believe in the Gospel, but God's, Barnes' Notes on this verse states: Had not GOD interfered and made a difference, all would have remained alike under sin. The race would have together rejected his mercy; and it is only by his distinguishing love that ANY are brought to believe and be saved”.   What they are saying is that ALL of mankind would drown in the sea of inequity, if God did not throw a life-preserver to a select few.   In the case of the Apostle Paul -- a murderer and persecutor of the righteous -- it would appear that sometimes God throws the life preserver to some of the most sinful and despicable among us, and yet it would appear that he denies this same opportunity to others who are not near as sinful.

Christian doctrine states: God is the foundation of all good; no man possesses any good but what he has derived from God. If any man possess that grace which saves him from scandalous enormities, let him consider that he has received it as a mere free gift from God's mercy” (Adam Clarke Commentary on 1 Cor 4:7).   If you are a believer -- it is the position of the Apostle that your belief is the work of God manifest in your life.   There is no works that you can do which will earn salvation -- you did not do anything deserving of God's blessings -- you merely inherited the promise because God indiscriminately decided that He would throw you a life preserver.   The problem that arises is in the biblical fact that, if you are a non-believer, that too is the work of God -- who chooses not to throw you a life preserver.  

The one who is saved is no different than the one who is not -- i.e., quoting Paul: As it is written: There is no one righteous, not even one… for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom 3:10;23 NIV).   Moreover, in view of the fact that God's criteria is not based upon either the works, or the moral attributes of the person -- Paul and many others being an example of this fact -- from a biblical perspective, the one who is not saved, and destined to the sufferings of hell, may even exhibit a higher manifestation of virtue and morality than did the one who is saved.   In the words of Calvin, who uses the Apostle Paul as his source of doctrine: “God has chosen to deprive the unbeliever of the communication of his light”, and for no reason other than He has mercy on whom He desires, and He hardens whom He desires” (Rom 9:18 NAS), Calvin admits that he leaves them in blindness”.

The Bible teaches that if you are a saint, a sinner, a mass murderer, or even the likes of Hitler, your station in life is not of your own doing -- but rather, the work of the Hand of God manifest in your life.   If you have not accepted Christ as your savior, it is because God has withheld His Light from you that would enable you to believe and have faith.   Therefore, regardless of how good you are, or the moral code you exhibit, or how great your humanity is towards others, from the perspective of the Bible, you are destined to Hell because God has predetermined and chosen this as your fate.

In view of the fact that it has been proposed by many Christians that Hitler was merely doing the will of God by exterminating the heretic Jews -- and there is speculation that Hitler believed that he had himself been anointed by God to complete the task that Jesus never did -- Christian doctrine suggests that Hitler could be enjoying eternal bliss in heaven, while the innocent Jewish children who he tortured and burnt in his ovens -- children who never did an evil act to anyone -- are now burning in the torments of hell because they never accepted Christ into their lives.   In view of this biblical fact, ask yourself this question: If you are a Christian, will you then greet Hitler when you go to glory.   Imagine for a moment you and Hitler -- together in the Kingdom -- talking about how you were saved -- gazing upon the Jewish children who never even had the opportunity to do any evil as they burn in the lake of fire?   Imagine you and Hitler, together, praising the glory of God in the shadow of their innocence and agony.   And while you are there you can greet Paul -- a man who killed and persecuted the earliest followers of Jesus.   Many Christians today are against abortion -- calling it infanticide and murder.   Yet, is this any more of an atrocity of justice than the preordination of children to live lives as vessels of wrath prepared for destruction” (Rom 9:22)?   Will these same anti-abortion people stand by and applaud the sufferings of these men, women and children who were predestined to dwell forever in the lake of fire?

If these things seem outrageous and far fetched, let us not forget the fact that when the Children of Israel were on their way to the land of Canaan, the literal text of the Torah portrays God as showing his power by bringing about the unmerciful destruction of innocent people: But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass through, for the LORD your God hardened his spirit and made his heart obstinate, that He might deliver him into your hand, as it is this day” (Deut 2:30 NKJ).   Did King Sihon possess free will, as many of us believe today?   King Sihon did not choose to block the path of the Israelites -- God “hardened his spirit” (king Sihon's) and made him do it.   Why?   In what modern civilized man would consider a detestable act of cruel and senseless barbarism, the God of Israel rejoiced: And the LORD our God delivered him over to us; so we defeated him, his sons, and all his people. We took all his cities at that time, and we utterly destroyed the men, women, and little ones of every city; we left none remaining” (Deut 2:33-34 NKJ).  

Are we supposed to applaud this atrocity -- this example of injustice and inhumanity?   Are we to praise the Lord and acclaim His righteousness that He permitted the Jews to slaughter even the “little ones”?   The Children of Israel were ordered to slay everything that moved and breathed: However, in the cities of the nations the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them -- the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites -- as the LORD your God has commanded you” (Deut 20:16-17 NIV).

The scriptures tell us that when the Children of Israel crossed the Jordan, the hearts of the inhabitants of the land were hardened by God: For it was the LORD himself who hardened their hearts to wage war against Israel, so that he might destroy them totally, exterminating them without mercy, as the LORD had commanded Moses” (Josh 11:20 NIV).   The Children of Israel were again ordered to slay every man, woman and child in the land.   In view of the fact that the people of Heshbon were not believers in the God of the Jewish Torah -- only because God Himself withheld His Light from their understanding -- the implications are horrific.   By human standards, the actions of God as reported in the Old Testament are even more diabolical than Hitler’s!   The great question that must be posed: Is this a merciful God who celebrates the destruction of innocent children without any other reason than he enjoys watching the carnage?  

When it is realized that at any time that God wanted, he could have unhardened their hearts, and permitted these people to believe, the moral and humanistic ramifications are truly astounding.   Why didn't God want to convert these people?   The biblical answer is because they were not of the seed of Abraham -- the person God chose -- not by works, according to the Apostle Paul, but for no reason other than He has mercy on whom He desires, and He hardens whom He desires (Rom 9:18 NAS).   Moreover, if God didn't want the people of the Nations in the land of Canaan, He could have willed it, and they would have simply migrated from the land without the loss of one single life.   If God wanted them to worship Him, and only Him, He could have willed it, and it would have been so.  

From our modern perspective, there is still another twist to this biblical episode: In view of the fact that God not only knew that these same Gentiles would become the chosen people of God when he caused the Jews to reject Jesus, why did he bring death and destruction to women and children whose ancestors would one day be called Christian?   If the scriptures are correct, and God has the power to control every aspect of life, then a Supreme Being of Love and Mercy would have just willed them to leave, believe, or anything else He desired, and it would have been so.

If there is any doubt from the perspective of Christian doctrine that we are mere play toys in the hands of God, the proverbial question that mankind should ask his Creator is already contained in the scriptures:   “You will say to me then, Why does He still find fault? For who resists His will?” (Rom 9:19).   If evil men are evil, because God, in the words of Calvin, withholds “the communication of his light, and good men are good ONLY because God bestows upon them the “communication of his light”, then are we not as play people -- mere playthings -- in the hands of God, in much the same fashion as a child playing with his toys?

The Apostle affirms this when he states in response to the question of For who resists His will?” and writes: On the contrary, who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, Why did you make me like this, will it? Or does not the potter have a right over the clay, to make from the same lump one vessel for honorable use, and another for common use? What if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction?” (Rom 9:19-22 NAS).

When the question is asked: “Who resists His will?”   It is important for us to recognize the fact that the disciple does not reply in the manner that our present-day church authorities would -- who would doctrinally respond that each of us has choices to make in our lives.   From the mindset and perspective of the Apostle, it is easily observed that choices are not even part of the equation -- but rather: O man, who answers back to God?”   The Apostle then goes on to explain that, in the manner of a child playing with his toys, it is God's right to make some people vessels of wrath prepared for destruction”, while He makes other people a vessel for honorable use”.   In other words, what Paul is stating is that there are some people who were created for the express purpose of destruction -- not because they chose such a fate -- not because they had done anything wrong -- but because in God's predestination, this fate was chosen for them prior to even the creation of the world.   Therefore, what the Apostle very clearly conveys to us is that the role in life they lived, was not by their own choice, but was brought about solely by the Hand of God.

Regarding these very controversial verses and the teaching on predestination, the Apostle writes: “It does not, therefore, depend on man's desire or effort, but on God's mercy” (Rom 9:16 NIV).   If you desire Christ, it is because God has permitted you to be a believer, and has ignited within you the desire for Christ.   The Bible affirms the position that the choice was not yours to make.

As an example of this Divine Providence in the life of the individual, the Apostle gives the example of Jacob and Esau, and writes: “For though the twins were not yet born, and had not done anything good or bad, in order that God's purpose according to His choice might stand, not because of works, but because of Him who calls, it was said to her, The older will serve the younger. Just as it is written, Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated” (Rom 9:11-13 NAS).  

What the Apostle is stating here is that before either of the twins had been born, before either had “done anything good or bad”, God not only decided their fate in life, but for no apparent reason, He hated Esau and loved Jacob.   Why?   Paul offers no explanation other than God does what he wants to do -- and man does not have the right to question God's choices in these matters.   This is especially seen in the words: “Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor?” (Rom 9:21 NKJ).

In the Epistle to the Romans the Apostle confirms that we are mere toys in the hands of God -- and like a child playing with his toy people -- God will have “…mercy on whom He desires, and He hardens whom He desires” (Rom 9:18 NAS).   Mankind is subject to this reality without any reason other than the fact that God wants to create and sit back and observe the dramas of life that we experience -- and ultimately, have fun with His play toys in any manner that He chooses.   Moreover, it would appear that those who are destined to what has been described as the eternal sufferings and tortures of Hell, have received such a fate only because God enjoys watching such carnage and suffering.

As toys, then, the Apostle tells us that we have no rights -- and this is confirmed in the words of the Paul when he wrote: On the contrary, who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, Why did you make me like this, will it?” (Rom 9:20 NAS).   Thus, the Apostle states to the believer that whether we are saved or judged to eternal damnation, it is not of our own doing -- our fate was decided prior to the creation of the world -- and we have no right to question the motives of God -- which motives include the total annihilation of innocent women and children for no other reason than God desires the carnage to come upon those who have done nothing to deserve such a fate.

From a modern Christian perspective, the doctrine of Divine Providence and predestination gets really scary when it is realized that God chose who would believe and who would disbelieve prior to the creation of the universe: “For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will” (Eph 1:4-5 NIV).   What is being stated is that when God was still in the stages of contemplating Creation -- prior to what we would relate to the events written in the very first verse of Genesis 1:1 -- God decided that He would make a certain group of people who would inherit all the good that He could imagine, and another group would be plunged into eternal suffering.   Why?   Because God wanted all people to know that He was superior to them -- that they were weak and inferior beings -- and He wanted them to know that there was absolutely nothing they could do in order to alter their destiny.   Thus, God created Satan as an instrument to bring about the defilement of Creation.   Why?   In order that all mankind would equally be drowning in a sea of inequity.   In this way God could choose from among the race of sinful man -- “in accordance with his pleasure and will” -- those who He would permit to inherit the good.

In order to demonstrate to mankind God's absolute power and authority, it is observed that God often chose the most morally degenerate men to inherit the good.   King David, for example, was a murderer and an adulterer, as demonstrated by The New Unger's Bible Dictionary in their sighting under David for First Samuel 13:14: “How, ask some, could a man after God's own heart have murdered Uriah, seduced Bathsheba, and tortured the Ammonites? An extract from one who is not a too-indulgent critic of sacred characters expresses at once the common sense and the religious lesson of the whole matter. ‘David, the Hebrew king, had fallen into sins enough -- blackest crimes -- there was no want of sin. And, thereupon, the unbelievers sneer, and ask, ‘Is this your man according to God' s heart?’” (Carlyle, Heroes and Hero-worship, 1:277; from New Unger's Bible Dictionary, originally published by Moody Press of Chicago, Illinois.  Copyright (C) 1988).

It would appear that God chose David -- a true sinner -- over Saul, because Saul possessed a conscience, and did not unmercifully wipe out his enemies, as seen where it is written under the heading of Saul: “But he disobeyed the divine injunction by taking alive Agag, the king, and sparing all the best of the cattle and all that was valuable, destroying only that which was despised and worthless. Instead of pursuing the campaign and finishing the destruction of the fugitives…” (New Unger's Bible Dictionary).   Thus, Saul failed in his mission -- which was to totally wipe out all the men, women, children, and everything that breathed among the enemies of Israel.

The Bible teaches that we do not choose God, but rather God chooses those among us who will be saved -- regardless of their moral standing.   Thus, Jesus said to his disciples: “You did not choose Me, but I chose you” (John 15:16 NAS).   The Bible goes on to confirm that no one can come to Jesus unless God permits them: “All that the Father gives Me shall come to Me” (John 6:37 NAS).   On this verse Barnes' Notes writes: “[The Father giveth me] We here learn that those who come to Christ, and who will be saved, are given to him by God… All men are sinners, and none have any claim to mercy, and he may therefore bestow salvation on whom he pleases. All people of themselves are disposed to reject the gospel, (John 5:40). God enables those who do believe to do it. He draws them to Him by His Word and Spirit; He opens their hearts to understand the Scriptures (Acts 16:14); and He grants to them repentance, (Acts 11:18; 2 Tim. 2:25)”.

It is important to recognize the above biblical concept that “All people of themselves are disposed to reject the gospel”, and that only those who the Father has permitted to come to Jesus can be saved: “that to all whom Thou hast given Him, He may give eternal life” (John 17:2 NAS).  

The Book of Acts goes on to confirm that the very mind of mankind is so controlled by the Hand of God, that only those who had been predestined and previously appointed to be saved are even permitted to believe: “and as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed” (Acts 13:48 NAS).   Of this word appointed or in some translations “ordained”, Barnes' Notes writes: “The word is NEVER used to denote an internal disposition or inclination arising from one's own self. It does not mean that they disposed themselves to embrace eternal life… it has uniformly the notion of an ordering, disposing, or arranging from without; that is, from some other source than the individual himself; as of a soldier, who is arranged or classified according to the will of the proper officer. In relation to these persons it means, therefore, that they were disposed or inclined to this from some other source than themselves... They were then inclined by an influence from without themselves, or so disposed as to embrace eternal life. That this was done by the influence of the Holy Spirit is clear from all parts of the New Testament, (Tit. 3:5-6; John 1:13). It was not a disposition or arrangement originating with themselves, but with God. This implies the doctrine of election. It was, in fact, that doctrine expressed in an act. It was nothing but God's disposing them to embrace eternal life. And that he does this according to a plan in his own mind a plan which is unchangeable as he himself is unchangeable is clear from the Scriptures. Compare Acts 18:10; Rom. 8:28-30; 9:15-16,21,23; Eph. 1:4-5,11. The meaning may be expressed in few words -- who were THEN disposed, and in good earnest determined, to embrace eternal life, by the operation of the grace of God upon their hearts”.

Regardless of what we have been led to believe by those we look to as religious authorities who attempt to soften the message of the scriptures in the endeavor to make it acceptable to a people who appear to possess more mercy and kindness than does the scriptural portrayal of God, what the Bible very clearly teaches is that the decision as to who would believe and be saved was made by God prior to even the first act of creation.   With respect to the beast, the Book of Revelation states that: “all who dwell on earth will worship it, every one whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb” (Rev 13:8 RSV).   Thus, all mankind has been predestined to worship the beast unless their name was written in the book of life… before the foundation of the world”.   This is again demonstrated in the words: “The beast that you saw was and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and to go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth will wonder, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world” (Rev 17:8 NAS).

According to the scriptures, all people whose name was not written in the book of life prior to the foundation of the world have already been assigned to the fires of hell, as seen in the words: “If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire” (Rev 20:15 NIV).   With regard to the coming Kingdom it is written that “Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life” (Rev 21:27 NIV).   What these things mean is that, prior to the creation of the world, the hand of God was upon all whose name is written in the book of life, and by virtue of God's Will -- and God's Will alone -- these chosen individuals will not be “impure, and will not do anything that “is shameful or deceitful”.   In accordance with the Will of God, those whose names are not written in the book of life will do evil, and this evil is often said to be also brought about by the Will of God.   According to Jude, the brother of Jesus, even the unbelievers in the church were foreordained by God: “For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ” (Jude 1:4 NAS).

When the Apostle Paul addressed the men of Athens he said to them that God “made from one, every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times, and the boundaries of their habitation” (Acts 17:26 NAS).   He did not say that after giving people life, He (God) permitted the people to live in accordance with their own desires.   In fact, it was written in Daniel that: “And all the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, but He does according to His will in the host of heaven and among the inhabitants of earth; and no one can ward off His hand or say to Him, ‘What hast Thou done?’” (Dan 4:35 NAS).   That all was predetermined before the Creation is confirmed by Isaiah in the words: “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please” (Isa 46:10 NIV).  

If we pose the question as to what degree life on earth is predestined?   It is at this point where the biblical teaching of predestination gets really frightening -- as demonstrated in Jesus' own words when he said: “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will” (Matt 10:29 RSV).   If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without the Will of the Father, then we have no other option than to come to terms with the biblical fact that everything in this life is directly orchestrated by God?   On this verse the Adam Clark Commentary states: “The providence of God extends to the minutest things; everything is continually under the government and care of God, and nothing occurs without his will or permission”.

In relation to this verse under the heading of Providence in the Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary it is explained that: “Divine government is the continued activity of God by which He directs all things to the ends He has chosen in His eternal plan… He governs insignificant things (Matt. 10:29-31), apparent accidents (Prov. 16:33), as well as man's good (Phil. 2:13) and evil deeds (Acts 14:16). God acts in accordance with the laws and principles that He has established in the world. The laws of nature are nothing more than man's description of how we perceive God at work in the world. They neither have inherent power nor do they work by themselves. Man is not free to choose and act independently from God's will and plan; he chooses and acts in accordance with them. In His sovereignty, God controls man's choices and actions (Gen. 45:5; Deut. 8:18; Prov. 21:1). God's actions, however, do not violate the reality of human choice or negate man's responsibility as a moral being”.

This very clearly defined biblical doctrine possesses a great truth -- the ramifications of which no person who calls themselves a Christian can oppose: Ultimately, what these passages of scriptures convey to us is that at any time that man judges, imprisons or executes a fellow human being, man is in essence imposing his judgment upon an innocent person.   All sinners -- all evil people since the dawn of time to the present, have all been preordained into the life that they lived by God's all pervasive power over the mind of man.   What the Bible states is that the only difference between a good and moral God-fearing man, and one who is a degenerate, is that God chose that life for each individual person.  

  

 

 

Why There Is No Such Thing As Reincarnation? - Or Heavenly Glory? Once again man's inability to comprehend his own higher soul-reality, is largely because of his inherent inability to understand the nature of Duality and Paradox.     And while some people attempt to merely dismiss both Duality and the Paradoxical reality of this world, such people do not possess either the necessary depth of vision, or a mature comprehension, that would even allow and permit them to perceive beyond the limits of their dogmatic and ideological beliefs.    Therefore, to even begin to understand the dilemma of life and man's fate when he passes from this world with greater depth, it is imperative to understand the nature and resolution of the paradoxical reality that confronts every single seeker that has ever -- or ever will -- walk upon the face of the earth.   Paradoxical Truths exist on a lower plane as diametrically opposite polarities of truth that one this level of divided reality not only oppose and seemingly conflict with each other -- but like male and female opposites, must be merged and raised up within the construct of a third-force higher realty, in order to solve the dilemma.   

There are people who not only claim to remember past lives -- but there is a body of factual evidence to substantiate their claims.   On the other had, there are those who say that there is no such thing as reincarnation -- and from one paradoxical perspective, there is truth to their position.   Yet, there are others who not only proclaim reincarnation as a provable fact -- but in many instances, they can remember events drawn from their own and others past lives.   And thus, it is important to pose the question: What if both positions are true -- i.e., that while the soul does live many lifetimes in its journey toward perfection and completion -- and yet, the person you are in this world has not only ever lived prior to your own physical conception in the womb of your mother, and when you pass from this life you will never be reborn as another person.   What if both seemingly conflicting positions possess truth -- and yet, they are both lacking a higher Truth that brings the paradoxical opposite positions into Oneness.    Which means that those who believe in reincarnation, as well as those who reject reincarnation, are not only equally in error from the perspective of the Greater Picture of Reality -- but that they will each remain hopelessly flat-lined, until which time their thinking, awareness and knowledge has evolved beyond their present dilemma.    

In the Book of Genesis it is proclaimed that if the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (aka Tree of Duality) were to be eaten, that the eater thereof will die.    And while critics of the Bible have often pointed out that after eating the forbidden fruit Adam and Eve did not die as promised -- what the critics fail to understand is that death from a biblical perspective, is not the same as physical death (see The Dead Know Nothing).   And this is why Jesus said of the people of this world: "...let the dead bury their own dead" (Matt 8:22 NKJ).    When the inherent paradoxical duality of this world is understood as being of the mind -- and the duality of the male and female columns of the Tree of Life is understood --  along with the duality and division of what is portrayed in the diagram at the right as the Heavenly Kingdom and the Earthly Kingdom -- then it is the duality of the fruit or knowledge of the paradoxical truths of this world that is portrayed as the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil that brings death to the eater thereof.   And a prime example of this forbidden paradoxical truth is demonstrated in the beliefs in either Eastern reincarnation or that of the Western idea that believers go to Glory.   The problem is seen in the fact that both beliefs hold a degree of truth as well as error -- and like all paradoxical truths, greater error is embraced when you embrace the one polarity and reject its opposite -- which is from a higher soul-perspective, equally true. 

  The True Self: The Gospel of Thomas warns that if you don't know thyself, that you will dwell in a state of poverty.   The Epistle Of Peter and James goes as far as to warn that if the body of esoteric knowledge of the Gospel become lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error."  (see Always To Wander In Error).  The Gospel itself teaches that if the Key of Knowledge is dogmatically thrown away and not properly applied to the interpretation of the scriptures, that the believer will be inhibited from entering into the Kingdom.   

Jesus posed the question: "What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?" (Luke 9:25).    Therefore, how can you "...lose or forfeit [your] very self?"  In Emerson's article on the Oversoul it is stated that "...our conscious ego is slight and limited in comparison to the soul, despite the fact that we habitually mistake our ego for our true self" (see The Oversoul).  And in like manner, in The Ten Principles Of Gnostic Revelation Philip K. Dick writes: "Each of us has a divine counterpart unfallen who can reach a hand down to us to awaken us. This other personality is the authentic waking self; the one we have now is asleep and minor" (see The Divine Counterpart).    In the teachings of G.I.Gurdjieff the people of this world are portrayed as "false personalities".    In the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 the people of this world are portrayed as previously generated failed images (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image).   Moreover, The Apocalypse of Peter also contains a description of Jesus’ death that differs drastically from the New Testament gospels.  When Peter sees Jesus being arrested he asks, “Who is the one smiling and laughing above the cross? Is it someone else whose feet and hands they are hammering?”   Jesus answered, “The one you see smiling and laughing above the cross is the living Jesus. The one into whose hands and feet they are driving nails is his fleshly part, the substitute for him. They are putting to shame the one who came into being in the likeness of the living Jesus. Look at him and look at me.”  And from this higher perspective  The Second Treatise of the Great Seth reads, “It was another who drank the gall and the vinegar; it was not I. They struck me with the reed; it was another.  It was another upon whom they placed a crown of thorns. But I was rejoicing in the height over their error. And I was laughing at their ignorance.”  

From the perspective of Plato's Cave, the ultimate illusion is that man in his physical organic form is his true self.   That man is a shadow image of his true self that is not manifest in the physical body-vessel -- an embryonic projection of our true self (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image) that is very much like the seed that is cast into the ground in the parable of the Sower And The Seed -- and the development of the seed-essence is wholly dependent upon the condition of the body-consciousness.   From a scriptural perspective, the seed that brings forth one hundredfold and can be portrayed as the "good ground", is representative of that person who travails in TheWay and transforms his body and physical consciousness into the Final Temple -- and as the High Priest of the Living Temple, the disciple of TheWay is then able to enter within the "narrow strait gate" within himself -- enter the Kingdom of Light through the presence of the higher soul and true self -- there by escaping what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- which can also be portrayed as escaping the illusions of Plato's Cave.    

If it is indeed true that we are an "image" of our true soul-self that is not manifest in the body-vessel, then we would be forced to not only perceive the scriptures from a totally different perspective, but also we would have to re-think the reality of self we are in this world and our inherent relationship to our true self -- i.e., our soul-self.   In the early scripture known as the Dialogue of the Savior, which was found in the Nag Hammadi Library of Christian Scriptures, Jesus explained that our natural dwelling place is a “place of life” where “the true mind dwells” that is “only pure light.”   Thus, confirming our true soul-reality as a Being of Light.   It is also important to note that there existed a segment of the Church as late as the 6th century that possessed the soul-knowledge that man's true reality and form was a Being of Light.   Among the condemnations of the Emperor Justinian against Origen in the 2nd Council of Constantinople in the year 553 where the teachings on the preexistent soul was condemned and deemed heresy from a dogmatic Church perspective, where this statement: "If anyone says or thinks that, at the resurrection, human bodies will rise spherical in form and unlike our present form, let him be anathema" (see Council Agenda).    The problem is that the true form of the soul is a spherical Being of Light -- and the human body is merely an allegorical manifestation of the mind projected into the symbols of matter.   Moreover, in our natural state we are a Being of Light -- and our body-vessel which we inhabit in this world, is merely an allegorical projection of mind and spirit into the image of the body.   That the journey of the soul over the course of many lifetimes was an integral part of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- and was removed by the Roman Emperors who ruled over the doctrines of the Church -- is demonstrated conclusively in The Ten Reasons Why The Church Rejects The Teaching On The Pre-Existent Soul.  

In each instance it is demonstrated that the person you are in this world is not the true being that you are -- but rather, a projected image of your soul which is your true self that does not incarnate into this world.   Which means that the person you are as an embryonic soul-image projected into this world at conception, and it can therefore be stated that you have never lived previous to your present birth.   Moreover, if you fail to attain the next stage of birth that Jesus said is necessary to enter into Life, as a soul-image that has failed to become manifest, as portrayed in Gospel of Thomas saying 84, you can neither reincarnate or can you go to Glory as the dogma of the Church assumes.   Which means that a more enlightened understanding of the Cosmology of Mind would convey to us the correct understanding of the warning of Jesus with respect to the words: "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NKJ) -- the word translated "destruction", in no manner represents what is actually being presented.   Quoting the footnote on this word in the Schofield Reference Bible which reads: “There is no thought in these various words of annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.    And in the same way that a woman does not perish if one of her eggs fails to evolve into a fetus, neither does the soul perish when one of its images which is projected into this world, fails to evolve through the three stages of birth.    And in the same way that the woman's egg that fails to become an embryo is "...thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”, so too is the embryonic image of the soul that is projected into this world "...unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose.”    And this purpose, is to bring about the necessary threefold birth that enables the soul to enter into what Jesus portrayed as Life.  To further demonstrate the higher reality of birth that was portrayed to Nicomedus in the Gospel of John (see Cosmic Ovum And Sperm), Jesus stated: "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" -- and this fact is a true reality of life. 

It is important to understand the principle of Wholeness -- as when Jesus healed the people -- i.e., "They that are whole have no need of a physician" (Matt 9:12).   And when the scriptures are understood in their original context, this is in fact the question that is posed to everyone: "When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had been now a long time in that condition, he said unto him, Will you be made whole?" (John 5:6).   And this lack of wholeness -- or, division between the person you are in this world, and your higher soul-self who is your true-self and Being of Light -- is what is being referenced to in the Epistle of James where it states: "a two-souled man is unstable in all his ways" (James 1:8) -- which Barns Notes On The Bible states: "A double minded man - The word here used, δίψυχος dipsuchos occurs only here and in James 4:8. It means, properly, one who has two souls"    And James 4:8 reads: "draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you; cleanse hands, ye sinners! and purify hearts, ye two-souled!"   And of those who are portrayed as being divided -- i.e., two-souled -- James writes that "For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord" (James 1:7).   And with respect to the original Gospel Message, achieving a state of Wholeness and becoming ONE with one's higher soul-self, is the initial objective of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.  

In the Key of Knowledge I raise and answer the question: Is the Gospel Copied From Another Source?   Briefly quoting from this article: What the Atheists and critics have never considered is this:  The fact that what is presented is in the scriptures is not at all an historical account (see An Inconvenient Truth) -- but rather, what is presented is a series of Universal Allegorical Symbols of Laws, Natural Forces and Higher Consciousness that is totally relevant to every person who has ever walked upon the face of the earth.   What this means is that such allegorical symbols as the Virgin Birth,  the Twelve Disciples, the symbol of Joseph that is not at all understood, the crucifixion, and even the name Jesus, all portray realities and conditions of mind that are as universal to the Ebionite Nazirene authors of the Gospels, as these universal allegorical symbols are to all the people's of the earth -- even those who live on a remote island.   As a mystic begins to comprehend the reality of what is portrayed as the Illusions of Plato's Cave -- and he begins to discover that what is portrayed as illusions, are in fact allusions -- and all the forms of nature are imbued with aspects of mind impressed into the forms that man sees and interacts with on a physical level -- only then can such a mystic begin to evolve to the degree that they fulfill the statement in the Gospel of Thomas: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest."    The fact that this world is very much a mental-womb (see The Womb Of Mother-Earth) -- and what man observes in the outer world are aspects of mind projected into the forms of nature that when rightly understood, have the power to nourish him in the Gospel objective of bringing about the Heightening And Expansion Of Mind -- culminating in the initiation of the next stage of soul-birth where the person you are in this world as an Embryonic Image Of Your Higher Soul-Self (see also The Reality Of The Soul), is then able to be nourished by the higher impressions of the soul which act as food for the mind, in conjunction with the Universal Laws and Forces of Consciousness acting within the Cosmology of Mind which has been preserved in the esoteric base of knowledge concealed within the allegorical scriptures (see An Inconvenient Truth) -- as the seeker/disciple brings about that condition of mind portrayed in the name Jesus (Yeshua/Joshua), as the prodigal son/daughter is reborn in the Edenic Kingdom of Origination (see http://GateOfEden.com ).

What believers, critics and pseudo-intellectuals all fail to understand is the reality that man does not make up the allegorical symbols that are used in the scriptures -- but rather, he interprets from a higher state of mind what already exists.   In the analogy of Plato's Cave, the forms and images that are danced upon the wall of the Cave that those imprisoned erroneously believe is real, are created by objects of a higher reality that are real.   And this is why the Gospel of Thomas declares the necessity to "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..."   The fact that EVERYTHING that you observe in Nature is aspects of mind allegorically impressed into the forms that organic man observes with his very limited physical senses -- and the meaning of these allegorical symbols are the expression of Divine Providence -- the authors of the scriptures merely used what is called the "language of the soul" to compose the scriptures in a language that already exists and is Universally Comprehended by the higher soul-self of each person that is not manifest in the physical body (see  Man As An Embryonic Image Of Your Higher Soul-Self ).   That the symbolism themselves in their original scriptural native environment has the power to act as a catalyst that connects the seeker/disciples mind with what these symbols represent within the Mind of the Soul-Self -- and that as a catalyst, the allegorical scriptures composed in the language of the soul has the potential to bring about the Heightening And Expansion Of Mind -- is a reality that those who reject the scriptures as mere myth, do not at all understand.

  

If we begin to understand the above -- and the fact that the ancient Mystery Religions were all in search of escaping the illusions of this world -- prevailing against the Forces and Laws of Mind and Consciousness -- and with respect to Pythagoras the article on his religious system tells us: "Pythagoras and his followers were important for their contributions to both religion and science. His religious teachings were based on the doctrine of metempsychosis, which held that the soul was immortal and was destined to a cycle of rebirths until it could liberate itself from the cycle through the purity of its life. A number of precepts were drawn up as inviolable rules by which initiates must live.  Pythagoreanism differed from the other philosophical systems of its time in being not merely an intellectual search for truth but a whole way of life which would lead to salvation. In this respect it had more in common with the mystery religions than with philosophy."

Thus, it was the objective of Pythagoras to embrace "Wholeness" -- and if one can begin to comprehend the Laws and Forces controlling one's own mind and being -- in conjunction with the Law of Octaves (see The Law Of Octaves) -- this knowledge of numbers as it applies to one's own mind and being, is of the utmost importance.   

When our astronauts flew to the moon, while it is true that rocket propulsion was used to escape the earths gravity and limiting factor of its organic atmosphere, the astronauts then utilized the Natural Laws to escape the pull of the earth, and permit the spacecraft to be pulled to its destination.   Scientifically, this would be portrayed as slingshot paths that are called Gravity Assist Trajectories.  They use the gravity and motion of planets to pull a spacecraft into a new path.   Quoting the article on Navigation in space"Gravity is a very important force. Every object in space exerts a gravitational pull on every other, and so gravity influences the paths taken by everything traveling through space. It is the glue that holds together entire galaxies. It keeps planets in orbit. It makes it possible to use human-made satellites and to go to and return from the Moon. It makes planets habitable by trapping gasses and liquids in an atmosphere. It can also cause life-destroying asteroids to crash into planets.   ...Consider Voyager 2 ... the spacecraft's arrival was carefully timed so that it would pass behind Jupiter in its orbit around the Sun. As the spacecraft came into Jupiter's gravitational influence, it fell toward Jupiter, increasing its speed toward maximum at closest approach to Jupiter. Since all masses in the universe attract each other, Jupiter sped up the spacecraft substantially, and the spacecraft slowed down Jupiter in its orbit by a tiny amount, since the spacecraft approached from behind. At this point, Voyager 2 had been sped up enough by Jupiter's gravity to get a speed greater than Jupiter's escape velocity. As it left, it slowed down again, but it never slowed all the way to the speed it was before getting to Jupiter. It left the area near Jupiter faster and in a different trajectory. This technique was repeated at Saturn and Uranus.  Gravity assists can be also used to decelerate a spacecraft, by flying in front of a body in its orbit. When the Galileo spacecraft arrived at Jupiter, passing close in front of Io in its orbit, Galileo experienced deceleration, helping it go into orbit around Jupiter. "    

So, our scientists in understanding the Natural Laws, timed their sequences where they initiated rocket burns to take advantage of the natural movement of the planets, where they could then manipulate these Natural Forces to bring about the results which they envisioned.   In the  The Law Of Octaves there is a natural twisting of the sequence between the third to fourth sequence-step -- and when this twisting sequence is applied to our own minds, it is this twisting of the Laws that keeps our thinking earth-bound and carnal.   But in living a Wholistic Lifestyle, Pythagoras, the core of the ancient Mystery Religions, as well as Jewish, Christian and Sufi Mystics, came to understand how the proper impressions at the right interval of the progression of one's thinking, had the effect of a rocket-burn that broke the pull of the earth-carnal -- enabling the seeker/disciple to begin to break through the barrier of what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- which can also be portrayed as escaping the illusions of Plato's Cave.   And when what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge is applied to the scriptures in the endeavor to turn them within to unlock the inner "narrow strait gate" within one's self -- entering the Kingdom of Light through the presence of the higher soul and true self -- by achieving what Jesus portrayed as the next stage of soul-birth, the image-self was then able to prevail over the Laws and Forces of the physical body and mind, and enter into the Permanence of the Higher Soul-Self -- and ultimately, the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.      

In the approximate year of 178 of our Common Era, Celsus, the Epicurean Philosopher and opponent of Christianity published a rather embarrassing work in opposition to Christianity known as The True Word or Discourse.    It is said that this work was widely published and used by the Pagan world as an attack on the Church.   Seventy years after its publication The True Word was still so widely circulated, that the Church Father Origen was commissioned by St. Ambrosius to refute this attack by Celsus.   When Celsus attacked the Church for being a “secret system”, teaching some a different doctrine than others, Origen replied: “Moreover, since he frequently calls the Christian doctrine a secret system, we must confute him on this point also, since almost the entire world is better acquainted with what Christians preach than with the favorite opinions of philosophers.  For who is ignorant of the statement that Jesus was born of a virgin, and that He was crucified, and that His Resurrection is an article of faith among many, and that a general judgment is announced to come, in which the wicked are to be punished according to their desserts, and the righteous to be duly rewarded?” 

Fundamentally, what Origen enumerated was elementary Christian doctrine 101 -- i.e., what the Apostle Paul refers to as the “milk” -- or that basic doctrine which still exists to this very day (see Mystery Of The Gospel).    Modern Christians have no idea that the position of the pre-Nicene Church was that the allegorical doctrine that is believed today as an article of faith is representative of entry-level Christianity that was “preached in the Churches… for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief” (see Exoteric Doctrines Designed For Entry-Level Believers).   The Church Father Origen who was commissioned by the Church acknowledged these doctrines -- refuted Celsus by stating that these beliefs are openly expounded as articles of Christian faith, and then Origen explained: “And yet the mystery of the Resurrection, not being understood, is made a subject of ridicule among the unbelievers.  In these circumstances, to speak of the Christian doctrine as a secret system is altogether absurd.  But that there should be certain doctrines, not made known to the multitude, which are after the exoteric ones having been taught, is not a peculiarity of Christianity alone, but also of philosophic systems, in which certain truths are exoteric and others are esoteric.  Some of the heroes of Pythagoras were content with his ipse dixit; while others were taught in secret those doctrines which were not deemed fit to be communicated to the profane and insufficiently prepared ears.  Moreover, all the mysteries that are celebrated everywhere throughout Greece and the barbarous countries, although held in secret, have no discredit thrown upon them, so that it is in vain he endeavors to calumniate the secret doctrines of Christianity, seeing that he does not correctly understand its nature”.

Thus, the question: Why could Pythagoras only reveal the esoteric knowledge of the Forces and Laws of Mind to his closest of disciples -- i.e., "...while others were taught in secret those doctrines which were not deemed fit to be communicated to the profane and insufficiently prepared ears."    And why was the pre-Nicene Church portrayed as a "secret system" wherein the inner spiritual core believed very different than the congregation of faith-based believers (see The Secret Doctrine Of Christianity).   Because this sacred body of esoteric knowledge could only be revealed to those who had themselves become Whole.   Unlike the very simple presentation of  The Law Of Octaves in the example provided, the human mind is complex -- with each of the 12 spheres of the Pattern of Mind as portrayed in the diagram of the Tree of Life each initiating a Major Sub-Octave -- wherein each from the perspective of mind holographically manifest in the pattern of the microcosm, which can be very much portrayed as the influence and gravity of a planet on the larger scale of the Macrocosm.   Thus, this body of esoteric knowledge which appeared to be the study of the intervals of the music scale and the cosmology of the universe -- i.e., in the words of Origen: "...Some of the heroes of Pythagoras were content with his ipse dixit" ("In the field of Logic, the Latin phrase Ipse dixit ("He, himself, said it") is known as the bare assertion fallacy, wherein it identifies and describes a dogmatic statement asserted, but unproved, which the speaker expects the listener to accept — on faith — to be true" Wikipedia) -- which as in the esoteric teachings of Christianity as well as all such systems, it is necessary to "accept — on faith — to be true"  until which time the seeker/disciple can achieve the necessary Wholeness and Heightening And Expansion Of Mind, necessary to prevail over the Forces and Laws of Mind and Consciousness, and achieve the next stage of soul-birth.  

In the 16th century Giordano Bruno (see Spiritual Religion) who was a priest in the Roman Catholic Church, also portrayed the cosmology of the universe as a cloak for his body of esoteric teachings.   As can be seen in the following quotation, Giordano Bruno understood the higher reality of the soul or soul-self that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes (quoting) He then proceeded to explain how this knowledge could be acquired. "Within every man," he said, "there is a soul-flame, kindled at the sun of thought, which lends us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge.  ...This principle in man moves and governs the body, is superior to the body, and cannot be constrained by it." It is Spirit, the Real Self, "in which, from which and through which are formed the different bodies, which have to pass through different kinds of existences, names and destinies."  Giordano Bruno taught that the Law of Reincarnation is indissolubly connected with its twin doctrine of Karma, or "High Justice."  Every act performed brings its appropriate reward or punishment in another life. In proportion as the soul has conducted itself in a body, it determines for itself its transition into another body.  And then, to show that the doctrine was not original with him, he carefully explained that it had been taught by Pythagoras, Plato and the Neoplatonists, and that he was merely passing on what he had learned from his predecessors.  (Giordano Bruno - Homage To The Forgotten Philosopher).

The question raised in the foregoing confronts every person who has ever walked the face of the earth -- i.e., how this sacred knowledge can be acquired.   And when understood, his words parrallel those of Philip K. Dick where Giordano wrote: "Within every man there is a soul-flame, kindled at the sun of thought, which lends us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge" -- or, in the words of Dick: "Each of us has a divine counterpart unfallen who can reach a hand down to us to awaken us" -- and one of the primary objectives and purpose of all religious teachings, is to tap into man's higher soul-self and acquire this sacred knowledge that can bring about one's transformation which first brings one's union with our true self -- i.e., our higher soul-self -- and ultimately, with our own divided nature overcome, our Union with God which was accomplished by our brother the historical Jesus.   And this is in fact the position of the first-century followers and disciples of the man Jesus who taught that by fulfilling the Law within himself he became in “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366 -- see http://Ebionite.com ).   And who is this Son of God that the man Jesus became in Union with?   The mystic visionaries portrayed the Son of God as the Logos -- or Mind of God (see Logos).   Which is why Jesus taught that all his followers and disciples are to seek out the One Teacher which in the Clementine Homilies the Apostle Peter portrays as the True Prophet -- stating: "And therefore I advise not only wise men, but indeed all men who have a desire of knowing what is advantageous to them, that they seek after the true Prophet; for it is He alone who knoweth all things, and who knoweth what and how every man is seeking. For He is within the mind of every one of us, but in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative; but He works in those who seek after that which is profitable to their souls, and kindles in them the light of knowledge. Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other. But He is soon found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth, and whose souls are not taken possession of by wickedness. For He is present with those who desire Him in the innocence of their spirits, who bear patiently, and draw sighs from the bottom of their hearts through love of the truth; but He deserts malevolent minds, because as a prophet He knows the thoughts of every one. And therefore let no one think that he can find Him by his own wisdom, unless, as we have said, he empty his mind of all wickedness, and conceive a pure and faithful desire to know Him. For when any one has so prepared himself, He Himself as a prophet, seeing a mind prepared for Him, of His own accord offers Himself to his knowledge”.

Once again, before you can even begin to draw near the Indwelling Logos, you must first achieve Unity with your inner soul-self that is a Being of Light that is neither manifest in, nor can the soul "...be constrained by" the physical body of man.   And to preserve the esoteric knowledge that the Church Father Origen portrayed as the "minor mysteries", the authors of the scriptures preserved and protected this base of knowledge by concealing it within the text of the allegorical scriptures -- composed in the Language of the Soul with which all of Creation is holographically written in.  

 

  

 

   

Those personalities who are portrayed as false-personality by Gurdjieff -- the ego-self by Emerson and Dick -- or, the illusion of self in the analogy of  Plato's Cave that Jesus portrayed as dwelling in the  "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- or, the failed-images of the soul in Gospel Of Thomas saying 84 -- were said to have very limited salvation beyond the grave by Valentinus, simply because only the true being that we are can either (re)incarnate, or go to Glory in the Christian understanding.   Jesus taught to "Enter by the narrow gate"  -- and unless the ego-self is able to bring about the next stage of birth they "...cannot see the kingdom of God".   Being not the real self, Gospel of Thomas saying 84 correctly portrays them as un-manifest (failed) images of the soul.   And it can therefore be stated that these failed images are not "known by God", because they are the direct expression of the soul -- and their connection to God is by proxy through the soul.   In like manner the Deists or American Gnostics stated that Creator-God did not directly intervene in the affairs of man -- i.e., that Creator-God "...endowed the world at creation with self-sustaining and self-acting powers and then abandoned it to the operation of these powers acting as second causes" -- and when properly understood, if Creator-God directly intervened in the lives of man, that would be synonymous with intervening in the thought-images of the soul that is being perfected by the "self-sustaining and self-acting powers and Laws" of God that controls the development of the soul in order to bring about its ultimate destiny.    

The Eastern concept of reincarnation where the soul passes through a cloud of forgetfulness upon entering the body in the process of rebirth, is based upon a profound ignorance of the soul or true self that remains in what is portrayed as the realm of souls.   And in the same way that Gospel of Thomas saying 84 portrays the plight of the failed image as having come into being after the previous failed images of the soul -- i.e., "...But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!" -- those failed images can neither reincarnate, nor can they go to Glory as the Christians imagine.    As failed images, they are very much as portrayed in the (above) Schofield Reference Bible as "...unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.    And yet, when the higher reality of the soul is understood as being segmented and comprised of almost countless separate holographic conscious parts that comprise the Whole -- i.e., "The soul...", writes St. Teresa, is as “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions” (Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila in Soul Symphony - Time - Soul-Octaves - Spiritual Cathedral) -- only then can we begin to comprehend the plight of the failed images which the soul has generated into this world.   And at the forgoing link I explore what St. Teresa portrays as  “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms", as the spiritual and mental embodiment of a Great Matrix of Mind within which each of the previous images which the soul-self has generated and lived, as existing in separate rooms within the mansion of the soul.  

  The Matrix Of Soul-Mind: In the subheading entitled The Enigma Of Time And The Soul Of Man, it is demonstrated that time is merely a dimension of mind within the higher reality of the soul-self -- existing within the Great Matrix of Mind of the soul.    Thus, the Encyclopedia states that: In mathematics, a matrix (plural matrices, or less commonly matrixes) is a rectangular array of numbers, symbols, or expressions. The individual items in a matrix are called its elements or entries" -- and in the mental matrix of the soul, each previous image represents a point of consciousness within a field of dynamic life-experiences of the soul-self that is the sum total of all the experiences of all the lives that the soul has lived.    Where Eastern, New Age and Pop-Psychology that ascribes to the Collective Consciousness philosophy that often imagines God as a Great Amoeba where oneness means the same -- just the opposite is true -- and oneness is the sum total of a great diversity of different experiences and conscious realities that Complete and bring about Wholeness.   And since the soul was created in the (holographic) image of God, then the soul in like manner is the sum total of all the life-experiences of all the images that exist as points of consciousness and being within the mansion of the soul-self.   And in many respects, this higher soul-reality can be portrayed as the embodiment of what the Church portrays as Hell, because each image-personality within the matrix of the soul-mind continues to dwell in the reality of the life that it lived here on earth.  

The Church Father Origen stated that “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis) -- and these strengths and weaknesses are the direct expression of the victories and/or defeats dynamically manifest within the matrix of the soul-mind that each person in the present life draws upon.   Where man envisions memory as being stored and ingrained in a computer like storage disk that can be looked up, such a scenario is simply not the case.   All the past images that the soul has lived as, continues to exist within the matrix of the soul-mind -- and as portrayed by St. Teresa, it can be said that each has its own room or space within the countless segments of the castle of the soul.   And since time is a dimension of mind (see The Enigma Of Time And The Soul Of Man), each of these past image-personalities exist as points of consciousness within the soul-mind matrix.   Within the matrix of the soul that lived as Hitler, the personality of Hitler still dwells as a point of consciousness that continues his former existence.   And in like manner, Rabbi Ovadia Yosefan expressed the mystical teachings of the Jewish sage Isaac Luria when he stated that the 6 million Holocaust victims "were reincarnations of the souls of sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things that should not be done”  (see The Chickens Come Home To Roost).   Which means that within the matrix of mind of the soul who lived as Hitler, exists a previous image-personality who were victimized by the people who lived as Jews under Nazi Germany.   In the same foregoing link I present the example of Barack Obama's spiritual advisor the Rev. Jeremiah Wright who subscribes to what is called Black Liberation Theology.   And within the matrix of the soul-mind of the Rev. Wright exists an image-personality that previously lived as a white slave owner.   Which means that the Rev. Wright's hatred of white people is the result of his abominations towards the black race by a previous soul-image that continues to dwell within the matrix of the Rev. Wright's soul. 

Mankind, who Jesus portrays as dwelling in the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- or what Plato portrays as a Cave of illusions -- dwells within a holographic reality that exists within a larger holograph that he cannot gain access to without the proper development of mind.   And while the Laws of Creation orchestrate the events based upon man's own past experiences in the present -- and it is these Laws and Forces which the Deists portrayed as being "...endowed ...with self-sustaining and self-acting powers ...acting as second causes" which orchestrate and even script the lives of man in the present that cause him to confront his own self -- i.e., “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV) -- it is the development of man's intuitive spheres of mind that provides him direct access into the previous soul-images within the matrix of the soul-mind that has orchestrated the events that man is experiencing in the present (see Spiritual Intuitive Development).   If Hitler had been able to directly draw upon his previous experiences as a victim of the aggression of those people who in his life were born as Jews who Rabbi Yosefan portrayed as having previously lived as "...sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things that should not be done”, then he might have been able to draw upon the insight to break the perpetual loop of the Laws (see Groundhog Day in What's Wrong With Wearing A Seat Belt? ), and he would have been able to overcome the Laws which the Deists portrayed as being "...endowed ...with self-sustaining and self-acting powers", and free himself from the shackles of what Jesus portrayed as The Prison -- or the Conditions of Birth.  

Did the Jews who prayed for deliverance from Hitler invoke the Law of Grace by repenting from their own past actions which had orchestrated their lives in the present?   Perhaps the best answer to this question is found in another question: Has the Rev. Wright repented from his own past as a white slave owner?   And in accord with the conditions of The Prison of which Jesus stated “Thou shalt by no means come out from there, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (Mat 5:26) -- would people act differently if they realized that their present experiences is a direct result of the previous actions of their own past soul-images?   In most instances, the religious/philosophical and political leaders in the present, were the leaders in the past, and they are merely confronting their own previous actions.   That their followers who blindly attach themselves to these leaders, share in the fate of what the Laws orchestrate, as each man confronts his own past actions, is a reality that can be portrayed as a common destiny under the Laws.    The Germans who followed Hitler, will in the future follow their leader into a type of future hell.   In like manner, those who sit in the congregation of people such as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright who blames the white race from it plight as a black man, will continue in the future to share in the destiny that awaits them based upon their present allegiance to the Rev. Wright.    And this is true of all of mankind with respect to the good, the bad and the truly ugly events of this world.   The Law is that as you do unto others, the same will be returned to you.   And while this return may not be in the present life, it will come back upon the soul until the last debt is repaid and neutralized -- i.e., "...till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (see Getting Out Of The Prison).    And of even greater importance is the fact that so long as debts are owed to one's brothers and sisters, it remains impossible to fulfill the Laws and manifest the Final Temple within one's self (see The Laws - The Gift On The Altar) -- which renders such a person totally incapable of true spiritual development and advancement, and incapable of understanding the higher reality of the soul.   Which means that such a person is doomed to failure as a generated soul-image, until the debts under the Laws are first satisfied and overcome.

 

 

 

 

 

Reincarnation - The Key To Christianity

Once the above important teachings are acknowledged, it must also be recognized that the modern Christian simply has no doctrinal means to understand what the Bible actually states.   So, like an ostrich, they complacently hide their heads in the sand -- not wanting to even acknowledge what the core Gospel teachings state.    Their manmade doctrines of belief which they promote to the world, simply has no means to explain many of the most important New Covenant teachings which they are forced to ignore.    Even the profound statement to the Pharisees who totally rejected the New Covenant teachings: "I tell you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you" (Matt 21:31-32 NIV).    Jesus did not say that the Pharisees would not get into the Kingdom -- only that the tax collectors and prostitutes who believe and repented would enter the Kingdom before them.    Thus, while the Pharisees were those who had been called in the above parable of the Wedding Feast and TheCall -- and because they did not come to The Call, they met with destruction -- the common sinners who were later invited, were permitted in the Kingdom so long as they had put on the required "wedding garment" of purity.     And thus we again see that the fate of those who were called, was in fact worse off than those who originally were not -- i.e., “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”.    But without the knowledge of the Mysteries of God that Paul stated could only be spiritually revealed to those who had left behind the "elementary" teachings of the Gospel and were "mature", and had achieved a degree of "perfection", the student of the Bible must understand the true meaning of the word destroyed as defined by the Schofield Reference Bible which reads: “There is no thought in these various words of annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.   In this instance the word destruction is being used when Jesus warned that those who believed his teachings should seek to "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NKJ) -- and the word translated "destruction", in no manner represents what is actually being presented.    And this is how Jesus could state to the Pharisees who rejected the Gospel teachings that "I tell you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you".     And this is also how Jesus could warn that the unbelievers would receive less judgment than those who were called, and did not totally fulfill the Gospel requirements -- i.e., “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”.
@@@   

While the term reincarnation is often used, the understanding of the word as is commonly believed by most people, is gravely flawed to the degree that it can be said that there is no such thing as reincarnation as being applicable to the people of this world.    The problem is that until the seeker of TheWay begins to put on the "wedding garment" of spiritual purity, they will remain bound in either what Jesus portrayed as The Prison, or the Outer Darkness where ignorance and unknowing prevails.    Therefore, in the same way that Paul warned that the baptized and committed believers were yet too carnal to understand the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom (see Mysteries), the reality of the soul itself will remain an enigma to them (see Know Thyself).   Which is why the Eastern and New Age doctrine of reincarnation is from a higher soul perspective, a fraudulent belief (see Reincarnation - A Counterfeit Doctrine).  

The question then becomes: How can a people who Paul warns is too carnal to comprehend anything beyond the most rudamentary and elementary of Gospel teachings, understand with the necessary maturity what Paul warns is beyond their understanding?   And, how can the teachings of Jesus and TheWay be limited to the perception and comprehension of those who lack the ability to understand anything beyond an entry-level perception of the Gospel teachings?    

Without an understanding of the teaching on the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes, the example of the historical Jesus and the manner in which he became At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God through the process of overcoming the Laws and bringing about the necessary Completeness and Perfection within himself, renders the Gospel account spiritually sterile.   Why?   Because the Gospels were not written about Jesus -- so much, as they were written for every other individual for the express purpose of conveying to them their own innate potential.   And thus, with the suppression of the original Gospel teachings and the ultra important Words spoken by God to mankind, the Church which should be the Light of the world has spiraled down into the abyss of idolatry.    In the original Gospel account of the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River, the Words that God spoke to mankind were the most important Words ever spoken to man.   These words which were spoken to all people's of the earth, had the power to unlock the door to the Kingdom.   Yet, when the later Church of Rome changed the words from their original context, in effect they slammed the door to the kingdom shut -- and it has remained shut, to this very day.   Where the Church of Rome desired a hierarchy of secular ordained priests who would dispense salvation in accord with the people's allegiance to the religion of the emperor of Rome -- peddling Christ to the masses for mammon and political power --  rendering unto Caesar what must be given only to God -- the Church threw away the very key of salvation.   

Jesus warned those who would call themselves his followers and believers: “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it” (Matt 10:38-39 NKJ).   The requirement that has been set forth is that “ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy” (Lev 11:45 KJV).    In the words of Gregory, Bishop of Nyssa: “…it is imperative on all those who have an equally earnest desire for the Good as He has, to be followers by the path of an exact imitation of Him Who leads the way to salvation, and to carry into action what He has shown them. It is, in fact impossible for persons to reach the same goal unless they travel by the same ways”.   And this is why the requirement was set forth by Jesus with respect to his disciples and followers:  “You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matt 5:48 RSV).   Yet, the whole of the Gospel message has been rendered spiritually sterile, because of the manmade doctrines that inhibit the congregation of believers from fulfilling the above objectives and requirements. 

It is easily proven that Jesus was not the Mithraic sun-god's latest incarnation as the Church of Rome maintained -- but rather, was a man who fulfilled the Law within himself, and became the Messiah/Christ at his baptism in the Jordan (see The Ten Words).   The idyllic worship of a god, simply has nothing in common with the teachings and objectives of the religion of Jesus.   They are virtually worlds apart.   And their mindset is so radically opposite, that the one is always heresy to the other.   And this is why in his Epistles, Paul warned that the Church would very quickly become the Church of the Anti-Christ ( http://Ebionite.com/AntiChrist.htm ) -- “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 this means is that the Church will worship the Anti-Christ as God.    And if we ask why this was predictable?    The answer is that the rejection of the core Gospel teachings, in conjunction with the worship of Jesus as a deity, would be instituted because of the heathen mindset and lifestyle of Pagan Rome, which would render the teachings of Jesus and TheWay spiritually sterile and virtually worthless with respect to fulfilling its intended purpose.    Once the very Words of God spoken to mankind was altered from their original context in order to revise the Gospel in the endeavor to make it useful to Pagan Rome -- under the control of Roman Emperors and their priests -- the Gospel teachings could no longer support their core original objectives.   And in the deification of Jesus, man as the lost prodigal sons would no longer perceive Jesus from the mindset of a pattern to imitate -- but rather, as an idol to venerate.   And because the Gospel teachings would no longer be applied to self in a manner that would free the prodigal sons from enslavement to the god (consciousness) of this world -- shackling mankind to lives of absolute spiritual ignorance -- subjecting man to the sufferings and evils of this world which Jesus portrayed as the Far Country.  

Without an understanding of how Jesus who was our brother, became the Messiah/Christ by fulfilling the Law within himself, then there simply is no way for man to understand how he must and can accomplish the same within himself.   Once Jesus was deified and worshiped -- instead of imitated and made the example for all of mankind to follow -- then the whole of the Gospel message was rendered spiritually sterile.   And without an understanding of how our elder brother Jesus came to accomplish what he did, it becomes impossible for man to fulfill the Gospel objectives within himself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Chickens Come Home To Roost!

As portrayed in the above presentation of The Laws That Perfect Mankind, the term the chickens come home to roost is merely an acknowledgement of the workings of these Laws.   Malcolm X used the phrase in response to the assassination of Pres. John Kennedy.   While Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson did not explicitly use this phrase, the meaning was the same when they attempted to portray the disaster of 9-11 as being caused by the sin of the American people in their rejection of the Laws of God as presented in the Bible.   Because Pat Robertson has embraced the doctrines of Pagan Rome (see The Christian Judas), Robertson was forced to deny the teachings of Jesus, and apologize because of his own spiritual ignorance which inhibited him from explaining what both the Bible and Jesus directly taught.   More recently, it has been demonstrated that just after 9-11 the spiritual mentor of Sen. Barack Obama used this phrase to present the argument that God is punishing (white) Americans, because of their past where they enslaved the black race.  

While the statement with respect to the chickens coming home to roost is true, because the religious leaders who have attempted to use it are all ignorant of the Movement of the Laws of God, they have been unable to explain exactly how and why the chickens do come home to roost.   On September 11th, 2001, the very liberal New York City and the very liberal United States was brought into the presence of reality, and was mugged by Islamic terrorists who believed they were doing good by striking a blow against the Great Satan.   What the left leaning liberal Bill Clinton, and the right leaning Jerry Falwell each predicted, was that the United States had angered God.   Falwell and Clinton had each suggested that the September 11th attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon was the result of debts that were owed by the American people.   While Bill Clinton in his speech at Georgetown University did not out right attribute the devastation at the hands of Islamic terrorists directly to the Will of God, as did Falwell, there can be no other reasonable explanation.

Interestingly, when Jerry Falwell proclaimed that the cause of the World Trade Center disaster was due to God’s anger over the immorality and ungodliness that has overcome the Nation as it continues its downward spiral into the decadence of Sodom and Gomorrah, the liberal leaning media was aghast that he would make such a statement.   People were appalled that Jerry Falwell, and then Pat Robertson, could even suggest that God had brought judgment upon the American people in the manner of the biblical portrayal of Sodom and Gomorrah.   Yet, as typical of liberals, very little protest was raised by the left leaning media when Bill Clinton warned that we were suffering the consequences of a nation that was both founded on slaves, and disposed and killed native Americans in order to get their land.   Regardless of the fact that we don’t like the message that both have expressed for very different reasons, there is an element of truth to what they are saying.     

In much the same manner, many of the mainstream Reform and Conservative Jews were angered when Rabbi Ovadia Yosefan, the former chief rabbi of Israel, a religious scholar who was also the spiritual leader of the Shas party, made the statement that no innocent Jews died in the Holocaust.  What Rabbi Yosefan said was that the 6 million 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.”   Immediately, all sectors of the population -- from then Prime Minister Barak, to the Holocaust survivors -- condemned the rabbi's remarks.   In a communiqué issued from his office, Barak stated: “His words are liable to harm the memory of those who perished in the Holocaust and are liable to hurt the feelings of their families and the feelings of the entire nation.”

Legislator Yosef (Tommy) Lapid, who had been himself a Holocaust survivor who at that time headed the secularist Shinui party, condemned Rabbi Yosef’s statements and said he was “… in effect confirming what Hitler said, that the Jews are sinners.”    Holocaust organizations and the two main Israeli radio stations reported that they were inundated with phone calls and fax messages, most of them criticizing Yosef's statement.   The Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum labeled Yosef's remarks “miserable” and said they “seriously harm the memory of the victims.”    In a released statement the museum said: “With all due respect to such a leader, it's hard to understand where Rabbi Yosef gets the courage to explain the intentions and ways of the supreme authority.”    Attempting to clarify his words in the following week to a populace that did not comprehend one of the most paramount teachings of both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, Rabbi Yosef cited a 16th century Jewish mystic, Isaac Luria, who wrote: “If the soul was not purified entirely the first time, and it left this world, that soul must come back in a reincarnation, even a few times, until it is entirely purified.”

What Rabbi Yosef stated was that all those Jews who died at the hands of Hitler, were merely reaping their own debts they had themselves committed in a previous life!    From the perspective of the Laws that everyone is in denial of, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   And this could just as well be expressed in the words: The chickens of those people who suffered under Hitler, had come home to roost.  

What the Rabbi suggested was even though we may appear to be the innocent victim in this present life, this was not always the case -- and each of us inherits both the good and the evil that we have personally and collectively engendered in the previous existences our soul has lived prior to our being born into the present life we are now living -- as so clearly stated in the words of the Church Father Origen when he wrote: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).   

Thus, the common message that Jerry Falwell, Bill Clinton, Pat Robertson, Jeremiah Wright and the Rabbi Yosef all proclaimed, was the conformation of the great biblically defined truth that what goes around comes around: “Even as I have seen, those who plow iniquity and sow trouble reap the same” (Job 4:8 NKJ); “Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled to the full with their own fancies” (Prov 1:31 NKJ); “But you have planted wickedness, you have reaped evil, you have eaten the fruit of deception” (Hosea 10:13 NIV); “God will give to each person according to what he has done” (Rom 2:6 NIV); “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life” (Gal 6:7-8 NIV); “If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” (Rev 13:9-10 NKJ); “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man” (Gen 9:6 NIV); “His disciples asked him [Jesus], Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” (Jn 9:2 NIV).   Yet, because certain New Testament teachings were removed by the Pagan Church of Rome, modern Christians are at a total loss when they attempt to explain how the Laws work in the life of man -- and even the very reason why bad things seemingly happed to good people -- or why a benevolent God ordains the good and evil that man is incapable of understanding.

While Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson do not believe in the pre-existence of the soul, and we are not quite sure exactly what Bill Clinton believes in, we can easily see that the position of Rabbi Yosef was not only biblically based, but is very much in accord with the original teachings of the New Covenant.   In the 69th chapter of the Gospel of the Nazirenes (see Gospel), Jesus is asked: “Master, if a man die, shall he live again?”   While every Christian will agree with the reply of Jesus in the words: “I am the resurrection and the life, I am the good, the beautiful, the true; if a man believe in me he shall not die, but live eternally,” where modern believers depart from the original teachings of TheWay is seen in the biblical interpretation of what it means to believe in the Lord, and what is required in order to live eternally.   Of those who believe, Jesus said: “As in Adam all die, so in the Christ shall all be made alive. Blessed are the dead who die in me, and are made perfect in my image and likeness, for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them. They have overcome evil, and are made pillars in the temple of my God, and they go out no more, for they rest in the eternal.”   While modern Christians will readily accept the idea that they will be made perfect in the image and likeness of Christ, the problem is seen in the words that they will “…go out no more”.

While Jerry Falwell and Bill Clinton agreed that man will be judged and owe a debt for his evil, only Rabbi Yosef correctly predicted the means and process by which the Most High God employs to correct the evilness and debts of mankind, as seen in the very next warning of Jesus: “For them that persist in evil there is no rest, but they go out and in, and suffer correction for ages, till they are made perfect. But for them that have done good and attained to perfection, there is endless rest and they go into life everlasting. They rest in the eternal. Over them the repeated death and birth have no power, for them the wheel of the eternal revolves no more, for they have attained to the center, where is eternal rest, and the center of all things is God.”   

If these words are true, and there is no rest for those who persist in doing evil because they are forced back into life in this world where they “…go out and in, and suffer correction for ages, till they are made perfect,” then we must pose the question as to how we will recognize these souls when they re-enter this life?   For the most part we can’t -- and they will appear to us as innocent men, women and children, unless we ourselves possess the spiritual eyes to see their more distant past that was beyond their entrance into this present life.   Thus, we can see the words of wisdom when Rabbi Yosefan said of the Jews who died in the Holocaust that they "were reincarnations of the souls of sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things that should not be done.”  

What this means is that those who suffered in the Holocaust came into that life to pay back a debt that was incurred in a previous life, and what Rabbi Yosefan was merely acknowledging was the very clearly defined doctrine that everything in life is predestined -- as demonstrated in Jesus' own words when he said: “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will” (Matt 10:29 RSV).   If, as Jesus taught, a sparrow cannot fall to the ground apart and without the Will of the Father, then we have no other option than to come to terms with the biblical fact that everything in this life is directly orchestrated by God?   On this verse the Adam Clark Commentary states: “The providence of God extends to the minutest things; everything is continually under the government and care of God, and nothing occurs without his will or permission”. Perhaps even more enlightening is the biblically based explanation provided to us under the heading of Providence in the Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary where it is explained that: “Divine government is the continued activity of God by which He directs all things to the ends He has chosen in His eternal plan… He governs insignificant things (Matt. 10:29-31), apparent accidents (Prov. 16:33), as well as man's good (Phil. 2:13) and evil deeds (Acts 14:16). God acts in accordance with the laws and principles that He has established in the world. The laws of nature are nothing more than man's description of how we perceive God at work in the world. They neither have inherent power nor do they work by themselves. Man is not free to choose and act independently from God's will and plan; he chooses and acts in accordance with them. In His sovereignty, God controls man's choices and actions (Gen. 45:5; Deut. 8:18; Prov. 21:1). God's actions, however, do not violate the reality of human choice or negate man's responsibility as a moral being”.

What is truly important for us to begin to comprehend in these words is the profound statement which truly conveys the reality of life in the words that “God acts in accordance with the laws and principles that He has established in the world. The laws of nature are nothing more than man's description of how we perceive God at work in the world. They neither have inherent power nor do they work by themselves.”  

What does this mean to us?   If it is true that not one sparrow can “…fall to the ground without your Father's will” (Matt 10:29 RSV), then Jerry Falwell and Bill Clinton would be correct in their assertion that the United States owes a debt, and the terrorists attacks on us were not only known beforehand, but were actually permitted by the “…laws and principles that He [God] has established in the world.”   Moreover, what this means is that those who appear to be innocent victims, actually entered into this life knowing that they would be required to repay a debt for their own past actions in a previous life.   And this is the very reality portrayed above by the Church Father Origen when he explained: "...that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor.

 

 "He who does not remember history is condemned to repeat it" (Georges Santayana).   Unbeknown to the majority of people, because the very same souls from the past are here in the present, continuing to wage the same conflicts that immersed mankind in ignorance and violence in the past, the people themselves submit to the shackles of almost perpetual enslavement -- from life, to life, to life -- until the person breaks the shackles of enslavement.   Einstein's definition of insanity was when a person does the same thing over and over again, expecting different results.   While I would not dispute with Einstein on this very insightful definition, the Laws that control the events of this world often initiate soul-growth by forcing each soul to switch the polarity of the life.    But because of the greatly expanded population of the earth in this timeframe, such souls as Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mussolini, Mao Tse-tung, Napoleon, and all the other would be despot conquers are presently on the world's stage as political, religious and philosophical leaders -- along with their followers.   Thus, the reality of the words: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7-8 NIV) -- which of course means that not only does each man's own actions come back upon him, but so does this same Law apply to a group.  

The Secondary Effect Of The Laws

Secondary Karma

In the above example of the holocaust and the Jews who one of their own holy men -- i.e., Rabbi Ovadia Yosefan -- said were born into that life in order to pay back a karmic debt (see Chickens), not all six million Jews had actually murdered people in the past.   Yet, because they acted in concert with their leaders, they inherited what can be called secondary karma because they supported those who did.   Often, support equates to acting in concert.   In the case of present day black activists such as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright (see Black Liberation Theology),  while many in his congregation were not slave owners, they supported the ownership of slaves.   The vast majority of confederate soldiers who supported slavery, were not themselves slave owners -- and yet, they have inherited the secondary karma by virtue of either their support of the institution of slavery, or their complacency to it.    So, while people such as Jeremiah Wright are preaching race hatred, and blaming the white race for the plight of the blacks in his congregations, in the same way that these souls supported the institution of slavery when they were white, they are now black and have inherited what they oppressed in the past.   

Why are people born under oppressive regimens such as Castro's Cuba, Stalin's Russia, Communist China, and all the other dictators throughout history?   Left leaning America coddles Castro -- and they see him as a champion of Marxism.   And while there are those in America who actively support Castro, there is a greater mass of people who who support and empower these activists.   In the future, they will be born into a Castro type regime where the activists will become the most oppressed, and those who supported the left leaning activists will be there as part of the equation.   In order for the leaders who are the actual perpetrators to play out their karma -- which often requires a reversal of roles -- on the stage of this life, the secondary people who are often victims, are necessary in order to create the environment to where the karma can be played out.   If there were no Cuban people, then Castro and his henchmen could not play out their karmic roles.   If there were no poor and oppressed blacks, then Jeremiah Wright would have no one to preach to.  If there were no Russian people, then Stalin could not have ruled over one of the most oppressive regimes in man's history.   Often, the backdrop of people who become the victims of these oppressive regimes, are those who either supported these causes in previous lives, or were complacent to them.  

If the Laws as presented in the above brought instant action against either an individual or group of people, then no real lessons would be learned in this, God's School House for His prodigal sons and daughters.   In the same way that you very quickly learn not to touch a hot stove, if each time that you judged, persecuted or oppressed another person, the Laws instantly returned to you the fruit of your own actions, then no real lessons would be learned.   If every test a school child took was an open book test, then the student would never learn to think, analyze and develop the mind.    They would simply learn to retrieve the answer, and respond in a parrot like manner to the test.   And in this world the lessons of life can only be learned, when the prodigal sons and daughters dwell under the illusion that there is no retributive action.     The instant reaction of the Laws would be seen in touching a hot stove.   A smoker does not immediately die of cancer -- the earth did not instantly become polluted when toxins were emitted in the atmosphere -- the ocean did not instantly become polluted when barges filled with garbage were first dumped in the ocean -- and in the same way, some lessons in life require a person of a group of persons to be born into the circumstances that their own actions have created in the past.    If the Laws reacted to our actions instantly, then the more important lessons in life would never be learned.   Often, these important lessons can only be learned when we walk in the same shoes as those who we owe a debt to by virtue of our judgments, persecutions, or the wrongs that we have perpetrated upon others -- i.e., as the prodigal sons, our own brothers and sisters.     The Law is portrayed in the words: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   But if the Laws of God that bring all experiences about in this world initiated an instantaneous response to our actions, then the prodigal sons and daughters would not be able to learn their most important lessons that will eventually perfect and make them Whole -- i.e., "You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect" (Matt. 5:48).   

In our present time a great number of people have inherited vast freedoms and liberties to pursue their own destiny by virtue of the blood that was sacrificed by our forefathers who secured these freedoms -- often with their own lives.   The question then becomes: What have these people accomplished with this gift of freedom, liberty and personal rights?   In the parable of the Talents (see Talents), each person is provided in accord with their own past accomplishments -- i.e., "And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey" (Matt 25:15 NKJ).   And as the Church Father Origen wrote: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (see Chickens Come Home To Roost) .    And, as futher explained by Origen: "...and that consequently every vessel [person], according to the measure of its purity or impurity, received a place, or region, or condition by birth, or an office to discharge, in this world... The conclusion from which, accordingly, is this, that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor" (see The Early Church On Predestination).    While most Americans have inherited the gift of freedom and liberty by virtue of the blood our the forefathers and Constitutional framers, most of them have squandered this opportunity away -- like the prodigal son portrayed in the parable.   And in the reversal of the Laws, this is how people are born into oppressive regimes -- and this is why there is what man calls evil in the world.   The vast majority of people inherit these often horrendous lives, by either supporting those who deny the rights of others, or are complacent to evil.   Over the course of countless lifetimes of inheriting one's own past, the prodigal sons begin to awaken to a higher calling -- a higher morality -- a higher spiritual quest.  

Most men and women can't get their marriages to manifest higher fruit, because they have been neglecting these same spouses over the course of eons of lifetimes.   Men use women, women use men -- and the karmic trail goes on, and on, and on.   Few people are willing to live their highest ideal and break free of the shackles of the Laws and the "outer darkness" (see Outer Darkness ).    The Ten Commandments warns not to covert what belongs to your neighbor -- because each soul is born into life in the exact conditions that their own past actions has orchestrated and brought about.   And this breaking of one's own past karma, is the reason why Jesus taught to turn the other cheek -- forgive and pray for those who persecute you -- and often, this is the only way to break the karmic cycles that enslave.  

In the example I give in the Blog entry on Jeremiah Wright's Black Liberation Theology: If it is true that the Laws have reversed Jeremiah Wright from being a slave owner who lived off the labors of slaves, to a preacher who is now living off the blacks who in the past as white southerners supported the institution of slavery, and now have inherited what they themselves supported and perpetrated against Africans in the past -- then to break the karmic cycle, they should be embracing the example of Jesus, and they should be praying for those who they believe are oppressing them.   Their present course of action will merely continue the karmic chain that has shackled them over the course of lifetimes.    And while they, themselves, may not have owned slaves, they either supported the institution of slavery, or were complacent to it.   But in this example we can see the plight of each and every person -- all of whom have inherited the fruit of their own ways in their own more distant past: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).

 

Leaders As Catalysts For The Laws

The Reason And Nature Of Evil

While religious and non-religious philosophers have forever bloviated on the cause and nature of evil, because they lack any functional understanding of either their own divided reality, the journey of the soul, and the Laws which bring about the higher objective of this journey, few people possess any real understanding of what is called evil.   Where our modern cultural mindset is driven by ideological philosophers who pontificate from the vision of how they would like the world to be -- while remaining totally ignorant of their own divided natures and realities -- the vast multitude of people are truly the blind being led by the blind.    On the other hand, while the the ancients and visionary mystics of the past understood man's true reality, the people in our modern culture do not possess the perception and insight to even understand the scriptural writings that have been placed in their hands.    But what man portrays as evil, is merely the Law that returns to each person the fruit of their own actions and ways.    

While Paul correctly stated that it is necessary to "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV), one of the realities that he is conveying to the people is the fact that man has a lower earthly nature that must be transformed.   And this is stated to the degree that Paul warned: “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).   Yet, our modern-day philosophers -- both religious and non-religious -- remain totally ignorant of the reality of this lower nature that has the potential to deprive the people of Life.    And the fact that both our modern cultural religious and non-religious leaders fail to understand the reality of human nature which is divided across a multitude of seven kingdoms, man's ignorance of self is depriving the prodigal sons and daughters of their true inheritance.  

In order to create and play a great symphony, a multitude of musicians must take instruments in hand, and come together to play in harmony.   We can't just simply randomly grab people off the street, place instruments in their hands, and expect them to play a selection of a master composer.   But more importantly, before a multitude of musicians can even begin to come together, each of the musicians must perfect the playing of their own individual instruments.   And what is true of musicians playing a great symphony, is in like manner true of the reality of the soul whose destiny is to mature and evolve to a state of Wholeness and Completion.  

Unlike our modern-day (religions/non-religious) philosophers, the authors of the scriptures we have inherited were not ignorant of man's divided reality -- and when the Key of Knowledge (see Key of Knowledge) that Jesus condemned the Pharisees for throwing away, is properly applied by turning the scriptures within self, and understanding them as a blueprint of one's own mind and being, only then can a seeker begin to find both Truth and their own higher soul-reality.    And in the same way that there is a multitude of people portrayed in the textual body of the written word of the scriptures, this same multitude exists within the mind and psyche of every individual person.   And the pattern of the mind is presented in what the biblical authors portrayed as the Tree of Life which is presented at the right.   As stated on the Nazirene web site ( http://Nazirene.org ): "Unless the Son of God personally teaches you the meaning of these symbols, you cannot enter the Kingdom of God."    The true spiritual objective of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay is not the blind belief that is preached in the Churches today -- but rather, to prepare the body and the mind in order to bring about the necessary spiritual transformation that enables the believer and disciple to learn directly from what the Ebionite disciples of Jesus and TheWay portrayed as The True Prophet (see True Prophet).    To the degree that the disciple Peter warned: Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples”.    And it is this spiritual reality that is presented in the words"It is written in the Prophets: 'They will all be taught by God.' Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me" (John 6:45 NIV).   This is why Jesus commanded his disciples not to be called teacher or rabbi -- because their is One Teacher, and unless you live the necessary life and manifest the necessary Wholeness of mind to enter and dwell in the Inner Kingdom (see http://GateOfEden.com ) and learn directly from the True Prophet within, then you possess no real enduring knowledge of any substance beyond the organic limitations of this world.  

As a prodigal son who is lost in this, the Far Country, the return trip to the Kingdom is accomplished through the development and evolutionary expansion of the mind.   The soul who lived as the historical Jesus, is not only our elder brother as he, himself stated -- i.e., "Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17 NIV) -- and he was in fact the first of the prodigal sons who overcame the Laws, and returned to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.   That Constantine, and the Church of Rome recreated Jesus as a pagan god (see The Christian Judas) -- typical of the pagan gods that had been worshiped in the Gentile world -- and edited the scriptures in order to make the Bible support the pagan doctrines of Rome (see Bible Corruption) -- is a reality that has inhibited believers from knowing the spiritual essence of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.  

The objective of Constantine and a very secularized Church, was to insure that the people were subjects to the state -- and remained in mental subjugation to the government ordained body of priests.   Where the essence of the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay was the development and expansion of the mind so that the lost prodigal sons could break free of the "Citizen... of the Far Country", which Paul portrayed as the god of this world, this original objective and goal had to be totally suppressed in order to maintain the people as subjects to the state -- with their thinking in total subjugation to the body of priests.   And thus, the original Ebionite Nazirene Disciples, and the Spiritual (Gnostic) Christians, were hunted down as heretics (see The Death Of The Religion Of Jesus).    And as predicted by the biblical authors, what Paul portrayed as the satanic god of this world ruled over the Church that called itself Christian, and the believers worshiped the AntiChrist (see Church Of The AntiChrist).    And while most Christians today continue to dwell in denial of this fact, what they fail to recognize is that the corruption of the Gospel and the scriptures was necessary in order to reach a greater number of the lost prodigal sons (see The Necessity Of The Church Of The AntiChrist).   

While it is impossible for the lost prodigal sons who dwell under the influence and control of the "Citizen... of the Far Country" to comprehend the higher reality of their own soul and the Kingdom of God (see Why The Truth Of The Gospel Can't Be Written Literally), because the minor mysteries of the Kingdom were concealed in both the parables, and the allegory of the healings, these important concepts remain preserved even though many of the more spiritual teachings were removed by the Church (see Bible Corruption).   And one of the most important and ignored realities is presented in the words: “If any of you really determines to do God’s will, then you will certainly know whether my teaching is from God or is merely my own” (John 7:17 TLB).    In the parable of the prodigal son, after squandering away his inheritance and coming under the control of the "Citizen... of the Far Country", -- the prodigal son who dwells in what is portrayed as the "outer darkness" (see Outer Darkness) -- where he is portrayed as being dead -- i.e., "...let the dead bury their dead" (Matt 8:22).    And this condition of death is confirmed in the words: "For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found" (Luke 15:24).   Being (spiritually) dead, and having squandered away their inheritance and dwelling in the "outer darkness", mankind is oblivious to the lower three earthly kingdoms which rule over his body and organic mindset, and he remains totally disconnected from the higher three earthly kingdoms which is the source of his essence of being.   With the problem being that, without transforming the lower carnal/animal earthly nature, organic man remains totally disconnected from the higher three heavenly natures.   And thus, the secret to his plight in this, the Far Country, is to do the Will of God in order to bring about the transformation of the lower three earthly kingdom -- i.e., "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature".  

The Seven Kingdoms: The secret to man's dilemma as the lost prodigal son, is found in the Star of David once it is overlain on the pattern of mind portrayed in the Tree of Life.     And within what is portrayed in this symbol, lies the Answer to man's Destiny.    In the same way that the Tree of Life portrays the twelve spheres of mind that is allegorically presented in the twelve disciples of Jesus, the Star of David in like manner has six outer points and six inner points.    And what is actually portrayed in the symbolism, is the Wholeness and Completion of mind and being.   When Jesus taught that the Law must be fulfilled -- i.e., "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.  For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled" (Matt 5:17-18 NKJ) -- what he was making reference to was the Fulfillment of the Laws as portrayed in this diagram at the right.   As presented in the words of the early Church writer Hippolytus, the Ebionite Disciples affirmed that Jesus "was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ." Hence "when Ebionites thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity."  (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).   And that the Greeks and Romans who called themselves Orthodox, were too heathen to comprehend the inner meaning of the Law and the scriptures -- and this condition of Absolute Ignorance which causes them to worship the AntiChrist, they have brought upon themselves by rejecting and denouncing the Law that Jesus warned is still in effect.   Thus, because they reject the Law, Jesus warned: "Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:19-20 NKJ).  

The mind and consciousness of man is focused in the fourth kingdom -- three earthly kingdoms beneath him, and three heavenly kingdoms above him.   And in his very narrow spectrum of vision, perception and understanding, he is oblivious to the other six kingdoms that make up his mind and being.    One of the most important teachings on the Kingdom that was removed from the Bible (see Bible Corruption), is still preserved in the Second Epistle of Clement which reads: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.    In the Divine Pattern (see Divine Marriage), all aspects of Creation dwell within the pattern of male/female and third-force balance.   The forbidden Tree of Duality (aka Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil), is the outer male/female columns of the Tree of Life -- and the division of the columns, divides the top heavenly point, from the bottom earthly point.   

  

In failing to understand the very nature of good and evil, few people can make any gains at achieving the primary objectives of the life they are living.   And while there is a necessary reason for the existence of all things, few people possess the vision and knowledge to perceive and understand the reality of this world. @HERE

One of the primary essentials of the scriptures and especially the teachings of Jesus, is the proper actions.   In what has been called The Epistles of Christ Unto The Churches, it has been noted that modern Christianity is so far in opposition to what Jesus actually taught, that “...it is impossible, if the canons of the Church be followed, for these epistles ever to be read in the public services”.  

In total contradiction to modern Christian doctrine, the criteria of judgment that will be used for the followers of Messiah/Christ is not passive faith, or philosophical belief -- but rather, the criteria is the peoples “works” -- i.e., what they accomplish with their lives -- and it is used in this fashion eighteen times in The Epistles of Christ.   At Revelation 3:2 we find an example of one of the main differences in the religious perspective of the first century followers of Jesus -- those who knew him, and personally sat at his feet and learned the requirements to enter the Kingdom -- and what we believe today: “for I have found no works of thine perfected before my God” (Rev 3:2 ASV).   All genuine Christians must therefore ask the question: What does it mean when Jesus condemns the people because they failed to have “perfected works” -- which in many other translations is rendered “completed works”?   From the perspective of what Jesus taught his faithful disciples, completed and perfected works is demonstrated by their ability to enter into the inner (Luke 17:20-21 @ http://GateOfEden.com ) parallel realm that he called Heaven, and another realm he called the Kingdom of God, and be spiritually pure enough to sit in the House and be taught by the One Teacher.   To follow Christ, literally means to go to where the Master is.   Since the Master is in the Kingdom, then we cannot be his followers if we are not with him.   Thus, the term “works”, takes on a whole different dimension that neither the Sadducees, Pharisees, the Church of Rome, nor the modern believer is able to comprehend.   And when this reality is understood, Paul was 100% correct to proclaim that believers can't find salvation in the ritual works of the Law.    Yet, because those who read the Bible are of a carnal mindset and lifestyle, the reality that Paul is attempting to convey is beyond their ability to even imagine.    Thus, while Paul condemned the rituals of the carnal Jews, he emphatically warned of the necessity of the works of the spirit that opens the inner "narrow gate" to the Kingdom.

The profound Truth that Jesus taught, was that every encounter in the outer world is a test -- and all tests are presented as opportunities -- to invoke the Laws that begin to open the inner door to the Kingdom, and expand the mind and consciousness of the believer/disciple to grasp the higher reality of all things in this and the inner world that he declared.     What this means is that the people who Christians call sinners -- as well as the perpetual evils that we observe in the world as the Laws return to each person and group of people the fruit of their own thinking, actions and ways -- are maintained in the unspiritual manner that we observe in the outer world, as a test for those who are worthy to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom ( http://GateOfEden.com ).   In portraying those who gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom, in relation to those who remain in this, the "Far Country... outer darkness", the end of the Revelation states: "Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie" (Rev 22:14-15 NKJ).    Thus, not only are those who are portrayed as the "...dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie" perpetually maintained by the Laws in this, the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- forever inheriting the fruit of their own actions and ways -- but they go from life to life under the control of what Jesus portrayed as the "Citizen of the... Far Country" in the parable of the prodigal son.  

In the article Science Proves Religion (see http://UnityOfMind.org ) it is demonstrated that what is called the underlying Etheric Field that surrounds all physical matter, lies the Source of not only what you see and perceive, but of all events that transpire in this world.    And what the findings of modern quantum physics have proven, is that reality is in reverse of Darwin's Theory of Evolution.    But more importantly is to understand that the life that everyone is living is like a Labyrinth which has been created by the Laws -- and every person as well as every encounter in the outer world, invokes Laws which directly effect our future -- both in the present life, and the future lives which are to come.   

What does the Bible actually teach?   Jesus warned that every encounter with respect to each and very word that one speaks, will be used as a judge to test every person -- i.e., "But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment" (Matt 12:36 KJV).    Paul warned to bring every thought to Christ -- i.e., "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5 NIV).     The brother of Jesus and first leader of the New Covenant Congregation taught to bring the whole of the body under control -- i.e., "…bridle the whole body" (James 3:2 KJV).   And Paul went as far as teaching the necessity to put to death one's earthly nature and the appetites of the flesh -- i.e., "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV). To the degree that Paul warned: “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).

  Why Do Christians Reject    

The Doctrine Of The Pre-Existent Soul?

The answer is that the modern Church adheres to the doctrine and theology of a Circus Prostitute and a Roman Emperor who maintained absolute control over what Christians were permitted to believe!!!  While this may sound outrageous to the modern believer -- i.e., ascribing to the doctrines of a Circus Prostitute who married the Emperor -- it is nonetheless true -- and Christians continue to embrace this prostitute's doctrines of belief even to this very day.   The New Testament was founded upon the reality of the pre-existent soul of man that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes -- and the existence of an uncountable number of sects today, is the direct result of the confusion which was brought about when this foundational concept was removed from both the Bible, as well as Christian doctrine.  Moreover, it is impossible for modern Christians to mature beyond only a very elementary and superficial understanding of the Gospel and teachings of Jesus, so long as this primary foundational concept is missing from their understanding.

  The Ten Words 

There are 10 words that were altered from their original context in the New Testament that have the power to re-establish the essence of the teachings of Jesus which was known as TheWay.   These 10 words demonstrate conclusively that the text of the New Testament has been altered and corrupted in order to make it support the doctrines of the Pagan Roman/Greek world.   These 10 words further demonstrate that the essence of the teachings of Jesus has little in common with the Christian religion today.   In fact, these 10 words are to Christianity what the 10 Commandments were to Judaism -- i.e., the foundation from which every other aspect of the religion springs forth! These 10 words prove the Ebionites correct, and modern Christianity which is founded upon 4th century Roman doctrines to be in error.  These 10 words prove that without a return to the essence of Jesus' original teachings, modern Christians are neither saved, nor do they have the salvation they erroneously believe they do.

  The Three Lies 

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

  The UnAnswerable   

Question Of Profound

Importance

The Great Question that Christians cannot answer! Did Jesus teach Reincarnation? It is well documented that his original Jewish followers believed in the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lives. From a Biblical perspective, there is good reason to conclude that you cannot even be considered a Christian and genuine follower of Jesus, and not believe in the pre-existent soul? Modern Christianity is a Church in denial with respect to it's foundings - the wealth of evidence with respect to the teachings of Jesus that were outlawed by the very Pagan Church of Rome. Come into the Light, let go of the doctrines of men, and learn the answer to the paradoxical question that Christians today cannot answer. The Truth will shock you!

  How Did Jesus Become The Son Of God 

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

  The Lie 

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

The Death Of Christianity!

Read the eyewitness account about the Death of the Religion of esus (Christianity) -- or, what can be called the Destruction of TheWay and the Second Fall of Man.  The events of the fourth century replaced the teachings of Jesus with a Pagan religion which is now called Christianity -- a counterfeit religion that continues to this very day -- and with the death of the Living Word and the worship of a religious corpse, thereby bringing about the rape, pilferage and demise of mankind from a spiritual perspective -- as the genuine followers of Jesus were hunted down and killed to silence the voice of the Truth!

  Bible Corruption 

The Grave Christian Misconception:  Modern day Christian doctrine rests upon the premise that God preserved the Bible in an absolute infallible and pure state, in order that all men should know the (historical) truth and believe in the Son of God. Their doctrinal position is that if God permitted the Bible to have been altered, then the present day church could not be genuine. Based upon this dogmatic presumption that the Christian Church must be maintained in order for man to be saved, they reason that God would not allow the written word of the scriptures to be corrupted. Thus, modern Christians cling to this doctrine -- ignoring overwhelming evidence to the contrary -- evidence that demonstrates conclusively that our Bible has been severely altered and edited -- because they fail to grasp the very foundational principles of the New Covenant itself -- principles that are not historical, but spiritual. It is not until we understand that the Bible is a road-map that leads us to the Gate of the Kingdom, and the Word that is written in our hearts -- rather than a final revelation from God to man -- that we are able to even begin to come to terms with the Spiritual Gospel of Messiah/Christ that can never be corrupted.

Where Is

Zacharias?

  Where Is Zacharias? 

 

Jesus stated: "That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar" (Mt 23:35;Lk 11:51) -- yet, the account of Zacharias is missing from our modern Bible.  The Church Father Origen stated the account which Yeshua made reference to in the above, was removed by many of the scribes of the Church, but could still be found in non-canonical scriptures that had escaped being corrupted.  Read the Introduction to the Gospel of the Nazirenes, and see what the account of Zacharias and many other crucial teachings that was removed from our Bibles looked liked. 

The Gospel Of The Nazirenes

 

What did the Gospels look like before being edited and re-written by the Church of Rome? What were the original beliefs of the first followers of Yeshua? You will be astonished when you read a surviving text of The Gospel of the Nazirenes which was hidden away from the corrupters of the Roman Church.  Are you ready for a truly enlightening experience?  In the Gospel of the Nazirenes all the primary doctrines of the Ebionites are confirmed.  Can you afford to cling to the doctrines of Constantine and the Pagan Church of Rome which is the foundation of modern Christian doctrine?   Or are you ready to embrace the Truth and the Light of TheWay?

The Key Of Knowledge

The Fourth Century Church of Constantine threw away the Key Of Knowledge that Yeshua warned was necessary to enter into the Kingdom Within.   In throwing away the Key of Knowledge, and living in accordance with their own manmade doctrines and traditions, Christians have made themselves apostates to the Kingdom of God: “Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge; you did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered” (Luke 11:52).    And thus, while Christians attempt to read the scriptures, they see not!   And while they hear the oracles of the Living Word, their ears are deaf.   And while they attempt to embrace the Living Word, in the manner of the Sadducees and Pharisees they understand it not -- because their hearts have been hardened from the teachings of Yeshua/Jesus and TheWay.

The original teachings

 

The original disciples were Ebionites of the Nazirene Vow of Consecration.  These original teachings of Yeshua are restored and presented on the Ebionite web site @ http://Ebionite.com .   What were the original teachings?    While they very much retained their Jewish foundation, they were also very different.   So different, that the New Testament can in fact be portrayed as the Sons of Light in the form of Yeshua and his Disciples vs the sons of darkness in the form of the carnal Jews who threw away the Key of Knowledge in their carnal interpretations of the written word.   

 

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

     

 

 

 

Do You Want Pure Uncorrupted Scriptures?

 

Quoting Prof. Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls, Prof. Burrows writes: “There are those who believe or assume that the Greek and Hebrew texts from which our translations are made are infallible.  No person who has studied textual criticism at all could believe that.  The most conservative scholars in the most conservative churches recognize that the text has become corrupt at many points in the course of its transmission.  If that were not already well known and universally admitted, the Dead Sea Scrolls would demonstrate it conclusively.”    

Quoting the Epistle Of Light -- i.e., Epistle Of James To Pope John Paul II (see http://EpistleOfLight.com ).   If you want pure uncorrupted scriptures, then send a copy of the Epistle to the Pope requesting that he release to the people the copies that are hidden away in the Vatican Library: 

Excerpt From The Epistle Of Light 

Epistle Of James To Pope John Paul II

What the great majority of believers and scholars realize today, is the fact that even during that period of spiritual darkness when the Church was ruled by the Emperors of Rome, there existed sincere priests within the Church who recognized the importance of many of the pre-Nicene documents and copies of the scriptures -- and it was these documents which were hidden away in the most secret of archives of the Vatican Library.   It has been shown to me when I was taken into the Kingdom, that among these important early documents is a copy of what is known as the Gospel of the Hebrews or Ebionites, and its release at this time is of the greatest importance in the return of the Prince of Peace and the restoral of the True Living Church of Messiah/Christ in the world.   It might also be noted that the release of this and other more pure copies of the scriptures is well within your power to accomplish.

 

At the present time many of the original disciples of Yeshua/Jesus have been sent back into life in order to bring about the coming spiritual restoral of the Living Church.   In the year 325 when the dark forces of Constantine set about re-writing and destroying the more pure copies of the scriptures, the true disciples of Messiah/Christ (both Ebionite/Nazirene and Gentile) set about burying libraries of scriptures so they could be rediscovered in the future.  The first of the scriptures to be rewritten by Constantine and corrupted was the Book of Acts, and the genuine followers of Yeshua/Jesus used the numbers in this corrupted gospel as a key to the discovery of the concealed libraries which would restore the spiritual essence of the Living Church of Messiah/Christ.   As an example: To demonstrate even the known great variances in the texts of this book, I will put on record the words of the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading of Codex Bezae, where it is written: "Codex Bezae… has a text that is very different from other witnesses. Codex Bezae has many distinctive longer and shorter readings and seems almost to be a separate edition. Its 'Acts, for example, is one-tenth longer than usual’".   You can gain great insight as to the extent of the corruption of the scriptures in the article entitled The Orthodox Corruption of the Bible @ http://nazirene.org/corruption.htm .   

 

Knowing that you are sincere in your dedication to my brother Yeshua/Jesus, it has been told to me that it would be totally unfair not to give you the opportunity to tell the people the truth prior to these libraries of scriptures being uncovered.   It has been further shown to me that you are being provided with choices -- i.e., if you release these early hidden documents, both you and the Catholic Church will be looked upon as a positive force in the spiritual restoral of the Living Church of Messiah/Christ; but if you fail to release these documents and tell the people the truth, then both you and the Church of Rome will be viewed as an obstacle to the Light and TheWay.   At present I am guiding and training up disciples of TheWay through both my forums and many web sites, and some of these people will soon have the knowledge of where these vast libraries of scriptures are hidden restored to their memory, so they can be retrieved for the spiritual nourishment of the faithful flock of believers.   It has been shown to me from On High that if these libraries of scriptures are rediscovered prior to your releasing the scriptures that are hidden away in the most secret archives of the Vatican, then the Church of Rome will no longer play a viable role in the restoral and future of the Living Church of Messiah/Christ.    I therefore implore you to walk the highest path of TheWay -- i.e., TheWay of Peace and Light and Spiritual Truth and Knowledge -- and immediately release these most ancient of documents into the hands of a sincere flock of believers who perpetually pray to the Lord to give them greater understanding of the Gospel.   The choice is yours to make, and is in your hands.   Act quickly, before the appointed time has past, and the Lord employs other means to bring about the spiritual restoration of the Church of Messiah/Christ.

The Essence Of TheWay

The Uniform Teachings Of Moses, Yeshua/Jesus and Mohammad

 

While to the entry-level people of the simple faith, the Law of Moses, the teachings of Yeshua in the New Testament, and that of Mohammad in the Koran may appear on the surface to be different, the inner spiritual meaning and revelation is identical.   And while this may be difficult for the vast majority of Jews, Christians and Muslims to perceive and comprehend, this is because the people of the simple faith are blind to the true spiritual meaning of their own religious texts.    In the words of the Zohar with respect to the Torah: “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 the words of the Church Father Origen: 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).

The Law is Spiritual! Yeshua/Jesus commanded his disciples to Observe and Fulfill the Law/Torah. Not in the ritualistic manner of the Jews, but in a Spiritual manner by turning the Torah within them in the endeavor to open the Inner Narrow Door to the Kingdom. By doing this, Yeshua became the Lord's Anointed (Messiah/Christ), and One with that Principle known as the Indwelling Son of God. 

The Disciple of the Lord is always a Nazirene -- i.e., the People of the Vow -- a Consecrated and Anointed Chosen One of the Lord who is set apart from the world.  Only those who are of the Vow of the Nazirene can know the Mysteries of God and the inner meaning of the Law/Torah that is the Keys of Knowledge that opens the Inner Door to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.

The path of the Disciple of TheWay is a personal calling for the more mature believer.  The Disciple must be willing to make the service to God the paramount and exclusive focus of their life.  Such a person must become a person of absolute dedication to the Lord as a Servant in the calling and care of His flock.

One Teacher and Rabbi in TheWay: In the Purity of the teachings of The Way, there can be no sects -- no opinions -- no manmade doctrines of belief -- no churches which call themselves by a name that separates them from another!  In the Purity of the teachings of The Way, there is only One Teacher -- The Messiah -- and all genuine shepherds who are faithful to the Lord are merely guides who point The Way to the Presence of the Son of God.  The disciple must therefore learn to apply the Key of Knowledge in their life so they can use it to open the inner "strait gate" to the Kingdom within.

The Kingdom Must be Entered While Physically Alive: As the Disciple follows in the footsteps of Yeshua and journeys in The Way, they are not only able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven through the "strait gate", but as they continue to develop spiritually, they are able to simultaneously exist both in this world and in the Kingdom at the same time.  This is the fulfillment of the Commandment of the Lord to be in the world and not of it!

The Soul That Evolves to Perfection: Yeshua/Jesus taught that the soul of man evolves to perfection over the course of many lives. The Disciples of TheWay believed in reincarnation?  You, therefore, cannot even be considered a true follower of Yeshua/Jesus, and not believe in reincarnation? Click the Lighthouse on the left and learn the answer to this profound and all-important paradoxical question that Jews and Christians today are unable to answer!  It will shock you to learn the truth!

You Must Be Born Again to Enter the Kingdom: Jews and Christians of the simple faith are as a fetus when compared to a Mature Disciple of Messiah/Christ!  Are you pro-life?  Traditional Church doctrines abort more Christians with respect to entering into Life, than does all the abortion clinics in the world. More Jews and Christians die by walking the Broad-way of Destruction because they cling to manmade doctrines of belief!  They fail to embrace the words of Yeshua/Jesus when he commanded: "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NIV)

How Did Jesus Become the Messiah/Christ? The Bible teaches that Jesus was a man who became the Messiah/Christ for the first time at his baptism, and the Son of God at the crucifixion.  His disciples believed that Jesus was a man who was in mystical union with the Indwelling Logos/Word.  How much of modern Christian dogma which is founded upon Plato's Doctrine of the Trinity is valid in the life of the modern Christian today? You will be shocked to learn the truth! 

Things Christians Never Told Jews About the New Testament Scriptures.  Did you know that the New Testament states that G-d did not want the majority of Jews to accept Jesus as the Messiah?  Not only the New Testament scriptures, but this fact is also confirmed in the Epistles of Paul, as well as the writings of Clement, the disciple of the Apostle Peter!  Why?  Because it was known beforehand that many of the Gentiles would be unable to embrace the higher concepts of the teachings of TheWay which came to be called Christianity -- and because the teachings themselves would become defiled and corrupted with Pagan/heathen concepts of religion, Judaism needed to be preserved separate, in order to preserve the bedrock from which truth could once again emerge more easily in the future. 

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

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

The Secret Doctrine of Christianity: The Original Church was Spiritually Wholistic. It served the needs of the sinner through the milk of the simple faith - the seeker through the revelation of the Minor Mysteries - the Spiritually Mature through Gnostic Revelation. Come and learn the true teachings of Jesus that was taught only to his genuine disciples.

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

Anthology Of Fools - Conflict Of Atheist & Believer: Atheists proclaim the tenets of a science they fail to embrace as apostates. And while the criticize religion and the Bible, they surrender their own gift of reason to contend with blind believers of the simple faith. In rejecting their own science, they are more dead and irrational than the religious people they judge and condemn!

As Nazirenes we know that it is sinful and turned out of TheWay to argue over manmade doctrines and carnal concepts of the meaning of the scriptures.  As disciples of the Vow of the Nazirene, we seek Total and Absolute Oneness with the Lord in the manner that Yeshua/Jesus taught, and the whole focus of our religion is to learn what we must do in our lives to bring this Intimate Union with our Creator/God about.  As the Prodigal Sons and Daughters of our Heavenly Father, we seek to release ourselves from the carnal and elemental limitations of this world, and walk in TheWay on our return journey back to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination that we emerged from in the beginning.

So You Think You Are a Follower of Yeshua/Jesus?

The profound long-suspected truth about Christianity became an indisputable fact when Dead Sea Scroll expert and biblical scholar A. Powell Davies expressed the immortal words when he said: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).  Worse yet, Edmund Wilson, an expert who worked on the Dead Sea Scrolls further raised the question as to what difference it makes if “Jesus... had been trained in the discipline and imbued with the thought of a certain Jewish sect, and that he had learned from it the role that he afterwards lived...” (The Scrolls From The Dead Sea).  To the uninformed and unknowing believer, it made all the difference in the world!  

At about the same time the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in a cave, a library of early Christian scriptures was uncovered at Nag Hammadi in upper Egypt.   Because of the nature of these writings, our scholars believe that these scriptures belonged to a sect of Gnostic Christians.   Yet, the understanding that was engendered from the study of these writings was profound, even from a purely historical perspective.   What they learned from the study of these writings again confirmed that the faithful flock had once again for a very long time believed a lie with respect to the first Gentile Christians -- a lie that again had been published by the Church of Constantine.   In the words of Prof. Elaine Pagles in her book, The Gnostic Gospels, the condemnation of the early Gnostic Christians by the Roman Church had “political implications”.   What she said was that the denunciation of the Gnostic Christians was “crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion.  In simplest terms, ideas which bear implications contrary to that development come to be labeled as heresy; ideas which implicitly support it become orthodox”.  What this meant was that what is today considered traditional Christian doctrine, was formed in the fourth century for purely political reasons in order to support the Church that the Roman Emperor Constantine authored and founded.

Proof of just how far the Christian Church has deviated from its original spiritual path known as TheWay, is seen in the fact that throughout most of the Christian world today the words mysticism and gnosticism are words more appropriately used to describe heresy and heretics -- and yet, in the words of Dead Sea Scroll expert Prof. John Allegro in is book, The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Origins of Christianity, he writes: “It is a fact that the Qumran Library has profoundly affected the study of the Johannine writings and many longheld conceptions have had to be radically revised.  No longer can John be regarded as the most Hellenistic of the Evangelists; his gnosticism, and the whole framework of his thought is seen now to spring directly from a Jewish sectarianism rooted in Palestinian soil, and his material recognized as founded in the earliest layers of Gospel traditions.”    What these words mean is that such common phrases as faith, belief, born again, and even the manner in which Christians worship, must be radically altered and turned back onto the original course that Yeshua/Jesus ordained, in order for the modern believers to even be considered followers, and inherit the promise of Eternal Life. 

TheWay is a purely spiritual path that enables man to overcome and transcend the limitations of this world, and enter through the "strait gate" into the inner Kingdom of God while still alive in the physical body.  While these teachings of the Master of TheWay who has been historically known as Yeshua/Jesus have come to be associated with a Church of this world -- and reinterpreted from a carnal perspective to be a religion of faith and redemption -- this was not their original intent.  At the core of these sacred teachings is the spiritual revelation of the path that man must sojourn as he seeks the Ultimate Answers to Life -- the unfoldment of our true nature as the Children of God -- and the knowledge that the prodigal sons and daughters of the Heavenly Father must possess to journey in TheWay, and return to the Kingdom of Origination.   

In his world-wide internet ministry Allan teaches that when Yeshua/Jesus proclaimed that there is only "one way" to enter the Kingdom of God, that this neither indicated the belief in an historical man or membership in an institutionalized church -- but rather, in that Principle which is known as the Son of God which can only be found by the Children of the Light who seek the Truth and TheWay in the spiritual essence of their hearts and minds.  That man has attempted to build an institutionalized church of this world around the teachings of Messiah/Christ in the same way that the Sadducees and Pharisees did, is merely man's inability to perceive and comprehend his own higher spiritual nature and reality.  And while the churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples of this world are necessary as an out-calling to the prodigal sons and daughters who are lost in this world of the outer darkness, the True Temple can only be entered by seeking within one's self in a purified heart and mind.

Babe's In Christ are as a Fetus!

Christians of the simple faith are as a fetus when compared to a Mature Disciple of Messiah/Christ! Church doctrines abort more Christians with respect to entering into Life, than does all the abortion clinics in the world. More Christians die by walking the Broad-way of Destruction because they cling to manmade doctrines of belief, and in Yeshua/Jesus' words: "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NIV)

Core Concepts to 

Enter the inner Kingdom 

and learn the Higher Truths of man's

Spiritual Nature

The Vow of the Nazirene: The Disciple of the Lord is always a Nazirene -- i.e., a Consecrated and Anointed Chosen One of the Lord who is set apart from the world.

The Path of the Disciple: The path to become a Disciple of the Lord is a personal calling for the more mature believer that goes far beyond the common religion of the people of the simple faith.

The Sower and the Seed: The Essence of the Journey in The Way is revealed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed.  The great truths that are revealed in this all-important teaching is a guide for all who desire to become a disciple of the Lord! 

The Law: What does it mean to live in accordance with the Law of God?  Yeshua/Jesus said that it was absolutely necessary to live in accordance with the Law -- but do we understand what that means?

Modern Science has proven Hebrew/Christian Mysticism: Our culture, secular school systems, modern church doctrine, all work together to inhibit people from knowing the Higher Truths and reality of our own soul and spiritual nature -- and alienate us from God. 

To know the Truth, one must reject the doctrines of men: God is universal, and can only be found by those who set aside manmade doctrines of belief and carnal perceptions of life and man's higher reality.

The Messiah/Christ can never come as men believe: Once the scriptures are properly understood, the Messiah/Christ will never come in the manner that both Jews and Christians predict.

The Gospel of the Nazirenes: What was the original message of the scriptures prior to being rewritten by the fourth century Church of Rome?  Most believers and non-believers alike will be shocked when they gaze upon the True Message of Messiah/Christ!

Reincarnation, the Key to Christianity: How did Christianity become an institutionalized religion that is turned out of The Way? Through a hostile government take-over where the true followers of Yeshua/Jesus were murdered, the scriptures altered, and history written to support the position of the Emperor Constantine and the Roman Empire. Read this astounding eye-witness account of the rape of mankind that disenfranchised all people from the Truth and the Knowledge of TheWay.

Main WebSites

The below web sites are written in the name of Allan Cronshaw, which is my birth name in this present life.   The manner in which these web sites are composed is to document and demonstrate every proof and concept of TheWay using a multitude of resources and biblical verses.   In the recently discovered Gospel of Thomas it is written: (12) The disciples said to Jesus, "We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader?" Jesus said to them, "Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being."   So to once again restore the teachings of TheWay which is today known as Christianity, the Lord has sent Jacob/James, the Brother of Yeshua/Jesus, back into the world in order to guide the faithful flock into the Truth, the Light, and the Kingdom within (Luke 17:20-21).   It is there that my brother Yeshua/Jesus awaits you.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Letter To President Bush: George Bush is a man of faith -- and the Lord has called him to deliver a message to another man who has the power to begin the process of restoring World Peace.  Will Pres. Bush arise to the occasion?   The conflict between Jew, Christian and Muslim cannot be resolved with guns and bombs.   The only solution is spiritual -- and there is only one man who can at present begin the process of world-healing.  Will you write to Pres. Bush and encourage him to perform the task that God has called him to do?

Institutionalized Ignorance Of Man Jesus was a Mystic, and he taught us how to walk the spiritual path of TheWay.   Paul warned that it is impossible for natural man without spiritual transformation to know the Truth -- and he will look upon the Mysteries of God as "foolishness"!   In vain believers read the Bible -- attend colleges and universities -- or read philosophical theories.  There is only ONE Source of Knowledge that nourishes us with the Enlightening Manna from Heaven.   The True Church is Spiritual, is within us, and can only be entered by the few who dedicate and surrender their lives to TheWay of Light. Everyone else embraces error - institutionalized error - in church, school and every other aspect of life.

To Know Thyself

To GOD

 

The Law is that all things must return to its source.   The esoteric truths that could only be revealed to those who had moved beyond what Paul portrayed as the elementary and entry level parabolic teachings (see Mystery Of The Gospel) -- and was portrayed as those who were able to Enter Into The House -- was the higher reality of the soul that is a Being of Light, and does not incarnate into the body.   And in accordance with the Laws, in the same way that your soul must return to it's Source, you must return to your source.   Your source is your higher soul-self -- of which you began your existence at conception in this life as an embryonic image of (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image).   And it is through these cycles of birth, development and return, that the soul-self evolves to perfection through the experiential knowledge gained in the life of each embryonic-image that is generated into this world.   Holographically, your higher soul-self must in the Omega, return to its Source, which is Creator-God.   The spiritually immature attempt to skip over their True Self, which is their higher Soul-Self -- i.e., "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty..." -- and they preach God.   

If you stand before the carnal and spiritually immature people of this world and proclaim that God revealed this or that to you, then they will not only listen -- but they will do your bidding and even give you their money and allegiance.   And thus, the leaders of the spiritually immature have been preaching God and depriving their brothers and sisters of Life, since the dawn of time itself.   If, on the other hand, you stood before the carnal and spiritually immature and stated that your true self revealed esoteric knowledge to you that will help them overcome their plight in the "outer darkness" of mind and being of this world (see Outer Darkness), they will condemn and reject you as a "madman" as portrayed in the analogy of Plato's Cave.   If, on the other hand, the person who escaped the illusions of the Cave of this world came and told the other prisoners that they escaped to heaven and saw God, the prisoners inside the cave would proclaim this person a prophet -- or, even God incarnate.   But the very fact that the few who actually escape the Cave of Illusions of this world, attempt to convey to the prisoners the reality of Self that the Gospel of Thomas states you must come to Know, causes the prisoners to condemn these few who escape the Cave of Illusions as heretics, madmen, and demon-possessed.  

The forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (Tree of Duality) is in fact the embodiment of the Divine Pattern of Creation which is holographically imbued with the PARADOXICAL duality of male and female in their infinite forms and expressions.   A paradox is two opposite and often conflicting truths that oppose each other even though they are both equally true.   And when rightly understood, forbidden fruit of the paradoxical opposites of the Tree of Duality can only be rectified on a higher plane (see The Triangle in The Way Of The Monk) -- and if you eat (ingest) the one truth while discarding or rejecting its opposite, then the eating of this fruit/truth sustains you in a state of (spiritual) death.   And one of the greatest of man's paradoxes which confront him, is the reality that while all of Creation dwells within the Mind of God, man dwells within God by PROXY -- meaning that while your higher soul-self is the direct offspring of Creator-God, you are the direct offspring of your higher soul-self -- i.e., "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty...".    

As a generated thought-image of your higher soul-self who is neither male nor female or any of the races -- and is a Being Of Light of pure vital life-force and manifest intellect -- it is impossible for you to become One with God -- because you dwell within the Mind of God by proxy -- and it is your higher soul-self that must return to its Source, which is Creator-God.   And in not understanding the Cosmology of Mind and the many images that make up the higher Soul-Self, or True Self that is not manifest in this physical world, you will mentally and spiritually flat-line in the manner of the Hindus who preached God to the people, in the time of the Buddha.   And since the person you are very much the ego-self in relation to your unmanifest higher soul-self (see The Divine Counterpart), then you lose yourself by becoming the "good ground" within which the embryonic image of your higher soul-self has been planted (see Sower And The Seed) -- and as you find and become your True Self, you will be working to bring about that condition where your True Self can then return to its Source -- which is Creator-God.

The Shepherd of Hermas was one of the most popular books produced in the early Christian Church, and up until the fourth century, was frequently quoted and regarded as inspired. The book is a picturesque religious allegory, in most of which a rugged figure dressed like a shepherd is Hermas' guide. The purpose of The Shepherd was to call clergy and laity responsible for grave disorders in the Roman culture to penance. Because present-day Christianity is imbued with these same Roman cultural disorders, the Shepherd is as appropriate today as when it was written.
 

The Jewish Scribes and lawyers had a perfect theological knowledge of the Old Testament but Jesus said, “Woe unto you, for ye have taken away the key of knowledge!”  The idea that Jesus condemned the Scribes and Pharisees because they did not believe in him in the manner proclaimed by modern Christians, has absolutely no basis in biblical fact.   When it is realized that the original Gospel accounts portrayed Jesus as a man who fulfilled the Law within himself to become the Anointed (see TheTenWords.com ) -- and that the Virgin Birth account which was a later addition, is purely allegorical, and was not part of the original Gospels (see Virgin Birth) -- then a totally different Gospel objective begins to emerge.   And in not understanding the original objectives that very quickly became altered and corrupted, the Christian world has itself thrown away the Key of Knowledge.
 

What if you are not your real or true self?   And if you preserve and attempt to save that which is false, that you will have squandered your life away?   What if what is often portrayed as the ego-self, is the person you are in this world, while the true self exists at a deeper level of mind and being and cannot easily manifest in the person whose thinking, mindset and lifestyle is founded upon the temporal cultures and lifestyles of this world?   And what if when Jesus makes reference to the blind, deaf and those incapable of understanding with any depth of comprehension, it is in reference to those who are carnal and anchored to this world -- which condition of mind is that portrayed as dwelling in what Jesus said was the "outer darkness" of mind and being?    And what if beyond the barrier of the inner wall of consciousness where the true self dwells, all truths were seen and known in the Light of a naked reality?   Why, all of a sudden the enigmas of knowing one's self, losing the self in this world, and ones search for the Kingdom within, would suddenly be understood from a totally different perspective than it is today.
