There are two ways,

one of life and one of death,

but a great difference between the two ways

In the words of Sir Francis Bacon: "Read not to contradict nor to believe, but to weigh and consider".

The True Measure of intellect is seen in the ability of a person to re-evaluate what they believe to be true when additional and clarifying knowledge is received, and then apply this knowledge in their life so as to intimately embrace the higher truth that has been revealed in the endeavor to receive still Higher Truth.  This article is dedicated to those who desire to know the teachings of TheWay as the revelation of the Word was revealed in it's original form when it was taught by the Master Jesus in the beginning of our Common Era. 

This article is part One of a Two Part Presentation.  Part One prepares the mind of the person to comprehend the workings of the Natural Laws that is explored in Part Two which is named: The Enigma Of The Law Of Octaves http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Enigma 

 

ChatGPT states of Allan Cronshaw and The Law of Octaves (Part 2): Allan Cronshaw is a writer and researcher who has published a number of works on esoteric and spiritual topics. In his writings, he has discussed a variety of concepts and philosophies, including the "Nazirene Ebionite Law of Octaves." According to Cronshaw's writings, the Nazirene Ebionite Law of Octaves is a spiritual and philosophical concept that combines elements of music theory, physics, and mysticism. It is based on the idea that the universe and all of its manifestations, including human consciousness, follow a pattern of periodicity and vibration that can be understood through the metaphor of musical octaves. Cronshaw suggests that this Law of Octaves can be seen in various aspects of human life, such as the chakra system, the cycles of birth and death, and the evolution of human consciousness. He argues that by understanding and aligning ourselves with this pattern of periodicity, we can achieve greater harmony and spiritual growth. It is worth noting that Cronshaw's writings represent his own personal interpretation of these concepts, and are not necessarily accepted or recognized by mainstream academic or religious institutions

    

Do you worship and follow the God of Jesus?  Or the sun-god of Constantine?  The purpose of the Gospel teachings was to teach TheWay that the prodigal sons/daughters must travail and evolve through the subsequent stages of birth that enables him to return and be restored to the Edenic Kingdom where your Heavenly Father awaits you.  You were not born in sin and in the need of salvation.  You are the evolving Offspring of our Heavenly Father. 

 

The Apostle Peter is quoted by his disciple Clement 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.’" 

The Facts are that the Church which arose among those outside of the original Ebionite Nazirene Congregations who are today called Christian, were too carnal to comprehend the teachings of Jesus on the fulfillment of the Law -- and the original teachings were suppressed and corrupted.   Again it is warned by Clement: "Wherefore observe the greatest caution, that you believe no teacher, unless he bring from Jerusalem the testimonial of Jacob/ames 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"  This article is a Restoration of the Original Gospel Teachings in accord with the witness of Jacob/James, the Brother of Yeshua/Jesus.

 

  The Restoration Of The Gospel Teachings: It can be rightfully stated that the teachings of Jesus disappeared, and when rightly understood, the Roman Empire was not converted to the religion of Jesus -- but rather, the personage and image of Jesus was converted to Mithraism -- and it is easy to prove and demonstrate that even the name Christian is drawn directly from Mithraicism (see Christ Before Jesus http://OriginalGospel.ebionite.com/#ChristBeforeJesus  ).  Today we call ourselves by the Greek word Christian -- but have we ever questioned where the term originated? If modern believers were truly sincere in their desire for a more intimate relationship with the Lord, they would immediately want to know the answer to the question as to why the "early believers avoided" using the  name Christian?  The New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge confirms that the name "originated outside of Christian and Jewish circles".  Thus, when rightly understood, a religious group that was outside the teachings of the Gospels, portrayed themselves as Christian, prior to the advent of Jesus and the Gospel teachings.  And the original Ebionite Nazirene followers of Jesus rejected the name Christian, because the Gospel teachings have virtually nothing in common with the teachings of those who called themselves Christian.  The original purpose of the Gospels was to present to the serious seekers an allegorical blueprint of their own mind that would be a catalyst for inner-development that would open the inner "narrow gate" that enabled the prodigal sons/daughters to return to the Edenic Kingdom of their Heavenly Father. 

The Original Gospel teachings are based upon the evolution of the Soul that enables the prodigal sons to return to the Edenic Kingdom.  This mental and spiritual evolution is impossible to accomplish in a single life -- which is why the pre-Nicene Church taught the pre-existent Soul that evolves to Wholeness and Perfection over the course of many lives (see The Pre-Nicene Church Taught Reincarnation http://ChristianReincarnation.org#PreNiceneChurch ).  But it is easy to prove that the Correctors of Constantine corrupted the Gospels, and by the threat of death, the doctrines of Constantine and a series of emperors were forced upon the Church  -- see The Correctors Of Constantine https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2024/02/the-correctors-of-constantine.html  )  And today it can factually be stated that moder Christianity is The Religion Of Roman Emperors http://ChristianReincarnation.org#emperors .  In order to create the incarnate Jesus-god of Constantine, even the very words that God spoke to mankind were changed and corrupted (see The Corruption Of The Words That God Spoke To Mankind https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2024/01/the-corruption-of-words-god-spoke-to.html ).  And because of this massive corruption of both the Gospels and the Church, my Soul incarnated to restore the Original Gospel Teachings (see The Law Of The Gospels http://TheLawOfTheGospels.com ). 

 

Who Am I? In this life my name is Allan Cronshaw.  But in the former life which my Soul lived, I was known as Jacob/Ya'kov who people today mistakenly call James, the brother of Yeshua who they mistakenly call Jesus, and as the original author of the core Gospel composed in the language of Hebrew Characters (see http://Cronshaw.us ), my Soul was sent back into this world to restore the important teachings that the Church suppressed and removed from the Gospels (see The Restored Original Gospel Teachings http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com  ).    Therefore, what I present to you is the Facts that your leaders ignore, through eye-witness account of the lives that my Soul has lived over the past 2000 years.  I was sent to convey to seekers the Original Teachings in this article which is Part I (The Law Of The Gospels) -- and how to enter into the Narrow Gate (see Part II @ Spiritual Osmosis And The Narrow Gate http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Osmosis ).  To prepare for the Inward Journey, it is necessary to understand the Cosmology of Mind set forth in the Tree Of Life http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org .  As the Author of the Original Gospel in Hebrew Characters, I know what teachings were suppressed, corrupted and even removed.  If you desire the facts on the condition of the Gospels, you can demand an original copy (see Can I Get An Original Pure Copy Of The Scriptures http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#PureCopyOfScriptures ).  As a guide in TheWay, I have no followers. No one is asked for any donations on any of my articles on my websites or blogs. There is no conversion to any religion other than your own. Christians can take these Original Teachings to their own Congregations, and restore the Spiritual Essence of their Path of TheWay. As you restore the essence of the Gospel teachings, only then can the End Times be brought about (see The End Times - Armageddon/Rapture - The Coming Of The Kingdom http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#EndTimes  ).  The True Church is Spiritual, and not of this world. Therefore, as a guide, I don't encourage anyone to join a church. Everything that I have written, is given to others free of charge. Neither do I peddle any books for profit.  Yet, the Holy Spirit is guiding sincere seekers to my Restoration Writings, which are being read worldwide, by people of all faiths and backgrounds.  Will you be left behind?   People have the right to believe whatever they want, but now that the facts have been presented to you, you are responsible for what path you take. You can no longer claim ignorance?  Neither can you ask how were you to know? To whom much has been given, much more will be required.  You no longer have an excuse. 

 

When Will You Achieve Mental and Spiritual Birth?  When Jesus conveyed to Nicodemus that "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3) -- Jesus was not at all making reference to a dogmatic religious belief such as that promoted by the modern Christians -- but rather, Jesus made reference to the Natural Laws within the reality of Human Nature -- and as an acknowledgement of Natural Law, his words are true with respect to every person who has ever walked the face of the earth.   What this means is that your physical birth is in fact the first stage of birth -- and you cannot escape from this, the Womb of our Divine Mother, until you achieve the subsequent stages of birth.  And while some faith-based believers interpret this statement to Nicodemus from a dogmatic perspective, what Jesus stated was in fact a Human Reality of Life that is monitored and achieved by Fulfilling the Natural Law of Birth.  When Nicodemus did not understand the threefold process of birth that the Soul of each person must evolve through, Jesus then asked how he could be a teacher, and not know these natural human realities of birth: "...Nicodemus answered and said to Him, How can these things be?  Jesus answered and said to him, Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?  What the vast majority of Gospel readers fail to understand is the fact that this statement applies to every person who has ever walked the face of the earth with respect to the birth-process, and every person who is or has been in the position of a teacher -- i.e., you are presently dwelling in a Mental-Womb, and unless you achieve the next stage of birth, you cannot enter into the future life in what is personified as the Higher Kingdom of God.  

When Nicodemus asked Jesus: “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”.  What Nicodemus failed to understand was the reality that mankind is presently dwelling in the Womb of Mother-God -- and our Heavenly Father is awaiting the completion of our birth-process.  So, when Jesus said to Nicodemus that he must be "born again", Jesus portrayed the subsequent stage of Mental-Birth that each prodigal son/daughter must accomplish (see When Man Meets Woman http://TheRealFactsOfLife.Ebionite.com#WhenManMeetsWoman ).  And when Jesus made reference to the Key of Knowledge, he was portraying the purpose of the scriptures as a type of birth-manual that wise men and women use to bring about and complete the subsequent stages of Mental and Spiritual Birth which is necessary to experience the Coming of the Kingdom within -- which enables the prodigal son/daughter to return to the Kingdom of the Father.  And when Jesus accused the Jews of throwing away the Key of Knowledge, he was rejecting their outward interpretations that they carried forth in ritual and tradition.  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 the words of Jesus are true -- and the Kingdom is within you -- then the question that Christians should be asking, is how must the Kingdom 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?"   In further clarification, the TEV version of the this verse states: “How terrible for you teachers of the Law! You have kept the key that opens the door to the house of knowledge; you yourselves will not go in, and you stop those who are trying to go in!” (Luke 11:52 TEV).  Thus, the scriptures when properly used, have the ability to "open the [inner] door to the House of Knowledge" -- and their outward interpretations whereby they seek the Kingdom to come outwardly (see The End Times - Armageddon/Rapture - The Coming Of The Kingdom http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#EndTimes ),  inhibits believers from "going in [the Hose of Knowledge]" -- and by teaching the people their outward interpretations, they inhibited the community of believers from entering the Hose of Knowledge.   That the primary objective of the Gospel is to prepare and enable the seeker/disciple to mentally and spiritually evolve so they can 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).  Which means that the Kingdom of God is not something that will come if we wait for it -- but rather, it is a reality which man must seek and find -- within himself as explored at The Divine Marriage http://DivineMarriage.org  

The Original Ebionite followers of Jesus rejected the Old Testament and the carnal interpretation of the Law: 

In their doctrine which has taught that Jesus nailed the Law to the Cross, and that Christians are no longer required to follow and observe the Law, the crucial question must be asked: Is this true?  When Jesus accused the leaders of the Jews of throwing away the Key of Knowledge -- i.e., "Woe to you experts in the law! For you have taken away the key of knowledge; you did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering” (Luke 11:52) -- it is ultra important to be cognizant of the words of Jesus that the scriptures must be applied in an inward direction -- i.e., "...you did not enter yourselves", as well as the source and type of knowledge he accused the Jews of throwing away.  The word Knowledge that was being referenced to is translated from the Greek word Gnosis, as seen in the Greek Interlinear where it shows "knowledge" in this verse is translated from the word "gnosis" at https://biblehub.com/interlinear/luke/11-52.htm .  Gnosis, from a biblical perspective is defined as: "Gnosis refers to knowledge based on personal experience or perception. In a religious context, gnosis is mystical or esoteric knowledge based on direct participation with the Divine."  The word Gnosis then, indicates Spiritual Esoteric Knowledge that is revealed or taught to a person directly from the Divine Mind within them -- at the Core of their Consciousness.  Deeper than what is often portrayed as inner or the sub-consciousness mind.   Knowledge derived from the Source of all Knowledge and Life -- And this body of Divinely Revealed Spiritual Knowledge cannot be read literally in the writings of man -- it cannot be literally written in scriptures or religious writings -- it cannot be taught by a teacher or rabbi -- because it can only be taught to the person individually by the Divine Mind whose thinking and mindset is capable of receiving the Higher Spiritual Knowledge.  

Erroneous beliefs inhibit mental and spiritual development.  In the Clementine Homilies, the Apostle Peter warns his disciple Clement that Simon Magus has the ability to greatly deceive the Gentiles, because they (the Gentiles) fail to understand the traditions used by the authors in the composition of the scriptures.  And with respect to the true purpose and objective of the scriptures, the statement of Peter's that is not at all understood today -- i.e, "...Wherefore they charge no one to teach, unless he has first learned how the Scriptures must be used" -- is parallel to a statement of Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement where Peter is quoted as explaining with respect to a discussion on the nature of the scriptures when Simon Magus stated to Peter: “Then said Simon: 'You are manifestly avoiding the hearing of the charge from the Scriptures against your God.'" To which Peter then replied: "'You yourself appear to me to be doing this; for he who avoids the order of inquiry, does not wish a true investigation to be made. Hence I, who proceed in an orderly manner, and wish that the writer should first be considered, am manifestly desirous to walk in a straight path’”.  

What, then, the intelligent seeker must ask, is the order of inquiry?  In these words are noted the most profound error of both Bible believers as well as the critics today who only perceive what is literally written in the narrative of the written word.   Believers see and read the scriptures in the manner predicated by their predefined doctrines of belief, while ignoring the very warning of the scriptures that it is their own perception of the Word that is in error.   Simon wants to engage Peter and use the scriptures to prove that the world was created by a lesser god.   Peter states that By Design, anyone can prove almost any doctrine by using the scriptures -- and therefore, before the scriptures can be understood, the “writer should first be considered” -- which means that unless you read the scriptures in accord with their original intended purpose, you render the scriptures worthless.  Why?  The answer is that "...the scriptures are exactly what the original authors intended them to be".   And in the case of scriptures, if the person fails to first understand "...how the Scriptures must be used", whatever interpretation they embrace will be in grave error.

In the quotation of Peter preserved in his disciple Clement's writings, Peter states that because of the believers inability to understand the  original vision and objectives of the authors of the scriptures, Peter portrays them as being easily seduced by Simon Magus, because they dwell at a level of mind whereby they hold what Peter portrays as bad and erroneous beliefs about God.   Thus, Peter warns that while those who can be portrayed as Spiritual Israel understand the "traditions" which the authors of the scriptures employed -- and in understanding the "traditions", they will be prepared to better understand the deeper spiritual meaning of the scriptures -- both the carnal Jews and the Gentiles who don't understand the "traditions" or the higher spiritual purpose of the scriptures, will be greatly deceived and states: “And with us, indeed, who have had handed down from our forefathers the worship of the God who made all things, and also the mystery of the books which are able to deceive, he [Simon Magus] will not prevail; but with those from amongst the Gentiles who have the polytheistic fancy bred in them, and who know not the falsehoods of the Scriptures, he will prevail much. And not only he; but if any other shall recount to those from among the Gentiles any vain, dreamlike, richly set out story against God, he will be believed, because from their childhood their minds are accustomed to take in things spoken against God. And few there shall be of them, as a few out of a multitude, who through ingenuousness shall not be willing so much as to hear an evil word against the God who made all things.   And to these alone from amongst the Gentiles it shall be vouchsafed to be saved. Let not any one of you, therefore, altogether complain of Simon, or of any one else; for nothing happens unjustly, since even the falsehoods of Scripture are with good reason presented for a test.”

As a sincere seeker embraces the Gospel Teachings -- living in strict accord with the original teachings -- Spiritual Knowledge/Gnosis is the Fruit of Development.  Erroneous or Bad Beliefs about God cancels or undermines all mental and spiritual development.  The article in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, portrays an ultra-important aspect of the Original Gospel teachings that is totally absent from the dogma of the modern Church where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.   To even suggest that one of the primary purposes of the Gospel teachings was to bring about the deepening, heightening and enlargement of human consciousness would be totally rejected by the modern faith-based believer.  Why?   Very simply, because The Original Gospel Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Modern Church Dogma.    Thus, under the heading of Gnosticism, the Encyclopedia Britannica states: “Among the majority of the followers of the movement, 'Gnosis' was understood not as meaning 'knowledge' or 'understanding', in our sense of the word, but 'revelation'.  These little Gnostic sects and groups all lived in the conviction that they possessed a secret and mysterious knowledge, in no way accessible to those outside, which was not to be proved or propagated, but believed in by the initiated, and anxiously guarded as a secret.  This knowledge of theirs was not based on reflection, on scientific inquiry and proof, but on revelation.  It was derived directly from the times of primitive Christianity, from the Savior himself and from his disciples and friends, with whom they claimed to be connected by a secret tradition, or else from later prophets, of whom many sects boasted.  It was laid down in wonderful mystic writings, which were in the possession of the various circles”.  

Why was the higher spiritual knowledge "in no way accessible to those outside" the group?  Because without living the necessary spiritual life, the body-mind cannot vibrate at the higher frequencies necessary to comprehend the spiritual knowledge.  And when Jesus was asked why the masses of people could not receive the spiritual knowledge and were therefore incapable of comprehending the teachings, Jesus replied: “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand” (Mark 4:11-12).  Great insight into this inability to see and understand can be understood by the statement of the second century Christian Church Father Clement of Alexandria, as quoted in Smith & Wace's Bible dictionary where Clement presents the difference between the faith of the entry-level Christian, in contradistinction to those to did as Paul commanded -- i.e., "Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity..." (Heb 6:1) -- and in Clement's portrayal of a Gnostic vs the elementary believer of the simple-faith, we see the result of Wholeness and Maturity: “Faith is the foundation; knowledge the superstructure, by knowledge faith is perfected, for to know is more than to believe. Faith is a summary knowledge of urgent truths; knowledge a sure demonstration of what has been received through faith, being itself reared upon faith through the teachings of the Lord. Thus the Gnostic grasps the complete truth of all revelation from the beginning of the world to the end, piercing to the depths of scripture, of which the believer tastes the surface only. As a consequence of this intelligent sympathy with the Divine Will, the Gnostic becomes in perfect unity in himself, and as far as possible like God. Definite outward observances cease to have any value for one whose being is brought into abiding harmony with that which is eternal; he has no wants, no passions; he rests in the contemplation of God, which is and will be his unfailing blessedness.”

When Clement portrays the Gnostic Christian as being in “…unity in himself”, and developing maturity and wholeness to the degree where they have become “…like God” and …brought into abiding harmony with that which is eternal”, it is at that time when the disciple becomes the True Christian by entering the final stage of spiritual development, and fulfills the biblical requirement as set forth by Jesus in the words: “You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matt 5:48).   When rightfully understood, perfection cannot be achieved apart from wholeness -- and only the person who has fulfilled this requirement set forth by Jesus in the Gospels, can perceive the world through a higher reality that organic man is virtually blind to.  

That the carnal Jews could not see beyond the symbols of the allegory, and their eyes and hearts were hardened so they could not comprehend the true meaning of the scriptures, is readily understood where Paul states that “their minds were blinded” by the Laws of God, “for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament… even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart” (2 Cor 3:14-15).   The vail that inhibits and blocks the person's ability to see and comprehend the spiritual meaning of the allegorical catalysts in the scriptures, is the effect of the Natural Laws that limits a person's perceptive-understanding to the "frequency and vibration" that corresponds to their own mind.  Jesus taught his disciples how to open their mind, and utilize those levels of consciousness that are beyond and out of the frequency range of organic (carnal) man.  The 2nd century Church Father Clement of Alexandria in his Stromata explained: “...now that the Savior has taught the Apostles, the unwritten rendering of the written, this has been handed down also to us”.   What Clement is stating is that it was Jesus who taught his disciples the inner spiritual meaning of the scriptures by opening their minds so their understanding could pierce through the garb of the allegorical enigmas that blind the perception of carnal men -- i.e., "Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures" (Luke 24:45 NIV).   Yet, while the Gentiles will see a very different message than the carnal Jews, both will be equally incapable of comprehending the spiritual meaning that requires a mind of expanded consciousness to understand.

In the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter portrays the scriptures as the "...books with the power to deceive".  Those who fail to understand both the traditions, and the nature of these writings, from the perception of the original objectives which the scriptures were supposed to bring about, cannot understand the higher spiritual meaning.   Further, it was stated by the Apostle Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement that each person (who does not apply the Key of Knowledge in their interpretation of the scriptures) only sees in the scriptures, what they are predisposed to see and believe -- i.e., “Therefore Simon, who is going to discuss in public with us tomorrow, is bold against the monarchy of God, wishing to produce many statements from these Scriptures, to the effect that there are many gods, and a certain one who is not He who made this world, but who is superior to Him; and, at the same time, he is going to offer many scriptural proofs. But we also can easily show many passages from them that He who made the world alone is God, and that there is none other besides Him. But if any one shall wish to speak otherwise, he also shall be able to produce proofs from them at his pleasure. For the Scriptures say all manner of things, that no one of those who inquire ungratefully may find the truth, but simply what he wishes to find...”.   What this means is that the scriptures are so designed to bring about that condition where each and every person is able to see and confirm their doctrines of belief which they are predisposed to look for in the written text.    And more important is the statement that those who attempt to read the scriptures from a differing mindset and objectives than the intended purpose of the original authors, will remain blind to "...the truth, but simply [see] what he wishes to find...” in the scriptures. 

 

   Censorship Of The Truth And The Facts: 

The Essene, Ebionite Nazirenes are the only people who walked and talked with Jesus daily, and they are therefore the only eyewitness to the actual teaching of Jesus that in their conversations he fully explained to them.  In the first century, all believers and followers of Jesus were known as Ebionites -- meaning the "poor one's"  -- i.e., poor ones to the ways, thinking and lifestyle of this world.  Thus, the early Church Authority Epiphanius writes that the name Ebionite "...was at first ...a common name for all" the original followers of Jesus (Epiphanius Adv. Haer., xxix. 1).  And this is where much of the confusion is generated.  It can be rightfully stated that the teachings of Jesus disappeared, and when rightly understood, the Roman Empire was not converted to the religion of Jesus -- but rather, the personage and image of Jesus was converted to Mithraism -- and it is easy to prove and demonstrate that even the name Christian is drawn directly from Mithraicism (see Christ Before Jesus http://OriginalGospel.ebionite.com/#ChristBeforeJesus  ).  Today we call ourselves by the Greek word Christian -- but have we ever questioned where the term originated? If modern believers were truly sincere in their desire for a more intimate relationship with the Lord, they would immediately want to know the answer to the question as to why the "early believers avoided" using the name Christian?  The New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge confirms that the name "originated outside of Christian and Jewish circles".  Thus, when rightly understood, a religious group that was outside the teachings of the Gospels, portrayed themselves as Christian, prior to the advent of Jesus and the Gospel teachings.  And the original Ebionite Nazirene followers of Jesus rejected the name Christian, because the Gospel teachings have virtually nothing in common with the teachings of those who called themselves Christian. 

It must be noted that the mother and family of Jesus were all Ebionites -- as was his brother Jacob who they call James, who was the leader of the Ebionite Community.   In the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Gibbon notes that the teachings of Jesus was “…embraced by great numbers of the Therapeutae, or Essinians…”, and wrote that: “Le Clerc (Hist. Ecclesiast p. 477, 535) seems to have collected from Eusebius, Jerome, Epiphanius, and other writers, all the principle circumstances that relate to the Nazarenes or Ebionites. The nature of their opinions soon divided them into a stricter and milder sect; and ...the family of Jesus remained members ...of the latter and more moderate party”.   Today, these same original followers and disciples of Jesus are portrayed by the modern Church as heretics, because both their teachings and their witness has virtually nothing in common with doctrines that modern Christians believe and promote.  Why are the Ebionites portrayed as heretics?  Because they maintained the need to observe and fulfill the Law of God -- exactly as Jesus taught them.  Yet, a footnote in the Biblehub article (see https://biblehub.com/library/pamphilius/church_history/chapter_xxvii_the_heresy_of_the.htm ) entitled The Heresy of the Ebionites states: "The Ebionites were not originally heretics. Their characteristic was the more or less strict insistence upon the observance of the Jewish law..." If the Ebionites were not originally considered heretics in their insistence on the need to observe and fulfill the Law as Jesus taught, then what happed?   This is the most crucial question for the modern believer to ask as to why: If the Ebionites were not heretics in the first century, they where condemned as heretics as more Gentiles embraced the Gospel teachings?  Why?  Because like the Jews, the gentiles were too carnal in their thinking, and therefore did not understand the spiritual meaning of the Law -- confusing it with the allegorical tenets of the Law of Moses.  Why do I portray the Law of Moses as allegorical symbols of the Laws of God?  Because, until Natural Man begins to evolve and advance his level of understanding, he is incapable of comprehending what Jesus portrayed as the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God -- i.e., "Do not give dogs what is holy; do not throw your pearls before swine. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces"(Matt 7:6) -- which proved to be true when the carnal gentiles rejected the teachings on the Law, and condemned those who Jesus directly taught as heretics.   Therefore, a large segment of the Gentile converts who continued to live a carnal-organic lifestyle -- often engaged in outward pagan and sun-worship -- were unable to understand the teachings of Jesus on how the Law must be fulfilled and the "narrow gate" entered.  The Natural Laws that a more modern voice would portray as the Laws of Nature and Nature's God -- as expressed in the foundational documents of our Constitutional form of government which declares Natural God Given Rights.

  Jesus Fulfilled And Taught The Natural Fulfillment Of The Laws Of God: If, as Jesus taught, that the entrance to the Kingdom is within each us (Luke 17:20-21), and one of the primary purposes of the Gospel teachings is the body of knowledge on how to fulfill the Law and enter through the "narrow gate" within us --  thereby enabling the prodigal sons/daughters to be restored to the Edenic Kingdom -- therein fulfilling the objective to be in the world and not of it -- and this is accomplished by living the necessary Spiritually Holistic Lifestyle that Jesus taught by becoming the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower And The Seed (see  http://SowerAndTheSeed.Ebionite.com ), which enabled the seeker the ability to fulfill the Law of God as Jesus taught, and this historical fact is demonstrated in the words of Hippolytus when he stated that it was the Ebionite position that the man 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).  Hence, Hippolytus states pertaining to the Gospel teachings of the original followers of of Jesus that "...when Ebionites [or any other person] thus fulfills 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).  The witness of the original followers of Jesus is noted by the historian when it is stated that Jesus was in “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366).  

That Jesus lived the necessary consecrated life and fulfille3d the Law within himself to become Anointed/Christed is confirmed in the Original Gospels prior to being Corrupted by the fourth century Church when the voice of God spoke to mankind and said of Jesus at his baptism in the Jordan: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee" (see The Corruption Of The Words That God Spoke To Mankind https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2024/01/the-corruption-of-words-god-spoke-to.html ).  Which means that the man Jesus for the first time became the Begotten of God.  Yet, the vast majority of Christians believe that God was wrong, and that their priests and a series of Roman emperors knew better than God.  What are the facts?  By using the earliest of biblical manuscripts in conjunction with six (6) separate quotations from the pre-Nicene Church Authorities prior to the year 325AD (see The Pre-Nicene Gentile Witness http://TheTenWords.com#Gentile  ), it can be factually demonstrated that the very scriptures that believers use today, read differently prior to the adoption of Christianity as the state puppet religion of the Roman government -- a Theocracy that was first ruled over by the Emperor Constantine -- and then a succession of equally pagan emperors who followed him. But, the witness of the disciples of Jesus also verified the words that God spoke to mankind when Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River. In the Book of Acts the disciples witness to their own Anointing (Messiah/Christ) in the words: "And now we proclaim to you the good news: What God promised our fathers He has fulfilled for us, their children, by raising up Jesus. As it is written in the second Psalm: ‘You are My Son; today I have become Your Father’" (Acts 32-33). The disciples are affirming that the promise of God was brought about when they too were adopted and anointed, and like Jesus they became adopted as the Sons of God and Anointed (Messiah/Christ). Yet, the the fourth century Church of Constantine corrupted the words that God spoke to mankind, and they recreated the man Jesus as God Incarnate.  

If Jesus was God, then the scriptures would be written from an entirely different perspective.   The second century Church Father Tertullian makes a brief examination of what the mindset of the Bible would be if the Trinity were in fact a valid doctrine: “I bid you also observe, that on my side I advance the passage where the Father said to the Son, 'Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten Thee.' If you want me to believe Him to be both the Father and the Son, show me some other passage where it is declared, 'The Lord said unto Himself, I am my own Son, to-day have I begotten myself;' or again, 'Before the morning did I beget myself;' and likewise, 'I the Lord possessed Myself in the beginning of my ways for my own works; before all the hills, too, did I beget myself;' and whatever other passages are to the same effect. Why, moreover, could God the Lord of all things, have hesitated to speak thus of Himself, if the fact had been so?”

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

The purpose of the Gospel teachings was to enable the lost prodigal sons/daughters to be restored to the Edenic Kingdom (see http://GateOfEden.com ) while still in the physical body-vessel -- and to attain the Anointing and At-Onement with the Divine Mind (see At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement  ).  Which means that the question that confronts every person who has ever walked the face of the earth is this: How many lifetimes will it take for you to fulfill the Natural Laws of Creation within your own mind and being, and in the words of the Revelation, "Go Out No More" -- i.e., "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 see Go Out No More http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#GoOutNoMore ).  

 That the Ebionites had been taught and enlightened by Jesus as to the spiritual meaning of the Law, and they did not observe it outwardly in ritual and tradition in the manner of the Jews, is the reason why the early Christian author Epiphanius wrote that the Ebionites "do not accept Moses' Pentateuch in its entirety; certain sayings they reject... stating Christ has revealed this to me, and will blaspheme most of the legislation" (Panarion 30.18.7-9).   If the original followers of Jesus "blasphemed" most of the tenets of the Jewish observance of the Law -- instead, embracing the spiritual meaning that "Christ has revealed" to them -- then it is the body of esoteric spiritual teachings that could not be understood by many of the gentiles, and therefore not be revealed to the multitudes that is the Core Gospel Teachings.  That the Gentiles were too carnal to understand the spiritual meaning of the Law, and the Jews threw away the Key of Knowledge in their outward observations and ritual interpretations (see Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ), has immersed both Jew and Christian alike in ignorance of the purpose and objective of the Original Gospel teachings -- i.e., the original followers were “…rejected from one religion as apostates, and from the other as heretics” (Gibbon: Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire.  When Jesus was asked by a man inquiring about eternal life: "Good master, what good shall I do that I may have life everlasting?" Jesus rejected being called "good master" -- as seen when Jesus answered him: "Why do you ask me about what is good? Only God is good. If you want to have eternal life, you must obey his commandments" (Matt 19:17).  If Jesus was God as the Church declared him in the fourth century, then Jesus would not have rejected the Preferred Pronoun "good master".   In fact, he would have acknowledged the title of God.  And in his answer to the man inquiring about how to achieve "eternal life", Jesus stated: "...If you want to have eternal life, you must obey his commandments"

  Doctrine Of Original Sin Rejects The Teachings Of Jesus: The doctrine of Original Sin (see The Original Sin Of The Church http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#TheOriginalSinOfTheChurch ) which originated in Mithraism, totally rejects the teachings of Jesus.  To the degree that modern Christianity which is based upon Original Sin, is a totally different religious path than the Original Gospel Teachings which is based upon the evolution of the Soul over the course of many lives (see Pre-Nicene Church Taught Reincarnation http://ChristianReincarnation.org#PreNiceneChurch  ).  Where the modern Christian sees Jesus as God incarnate, in the Gospel teachings Jesus was our brother who fulfilled the Law within himself -- became of an Anointed Mind/Consciousness -- and entered into a Marriage/Union with the Divine Mind of God (a.k.a. Word, Logos, Son of God).  In many instances this change required the suppression of certain teachings, and even the corruption of the words that God spoke to mankind when the man Jesus achieved his initial Anointing when the Father said at the baptism of Jesus:   "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee"  (see The Corruption Of The Words Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CorruptionOfGodsWords  ).  What this confirms is the position of those who walked and talked daily with Jesus when they witnessed that on the day that Jesus was baptized in the Jordan, he became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) for the first time.   

How modern Christians perceive what the scriptures convey to us today is easily demonstrated by using our very own Bibles.   When Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders that the “...tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you” (Matt 21:31 RSV), such a statement simply has no place within the present day understanding of Christian doctrine.   Because we are without a means to explain Jesus' words, most Bible commentaries simply ignore the implications of this passage of scripture.   One widely used commentary attempts to correct the text by changing the words to “instead of” -- which would then make the meaning doctrinally correct and read: “The tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God instead of you”.   In this verse of scripture we are presented with one of the core reasons why the original followers of Jesus believed differently than most Christians today.   The question that must be posed is: When will the chief priests and elders enter into the kingdom?   Modern Christian doctrine states that because of their disbelief and rejection of Christ, they will be cut off from the face of God, and condemned to eternal judgment.   And yet we cannot deny the fact that Jesus' own words convey the message that there will come a time when the chief priests and elders will also enter the Kingdom of God -- and it will be at a time after the tax collectors and harlots who believed, repented, and followed the Christ.

While the Mithraic-Based Christianity created by the Emperor Constantine in the fourth century is founded upon Original Sin, the only real foundation of the Gospels is the pre-existent Soul that evolves to Wholeness and Perfection over the course of many lives.  And this fact is easily proven in the article entitled The Pre-Nicene Position Of The Church On Reincarnation https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2022/04/the-pre-nicene-position-of-church-on.html -- and further explored at The Christian Secret Doctrine http://SecretDoctrine.Nazirene.org .  

 

 

The Esoteric Gospel Teachings: When Jesus accused the leaders of the Jews of throwing away the Key of Knowledge -- i.e., "Woe to you experts in the law! For you have taken away the key of knowledge; you did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering” (Luke 11:52) -- it is important to understand the source and type of knowledge he accused the Jews of throwing away.  The word Knowledge that was being referenced to is translated from the Greek word Gnosis, as seen in the Greek Interlinear where it shows "knowledge" in this verse is translated from the word "gnosis" at https://biblehub.com/interlinear/luke/11-52.htm .  Gnosis, from a biblical perspective is defined as: "Gnosis refers to knowledge based on personal experience or perception. In a religious context, gnosis is mystical or esoteric knowledge based on direct participation with the divine."  The word Gnosis then indicates Spiritual Knowledge that is revealed or taught to the person directly from the Divine Mind within them.  This Divinely Revealed Spiritual Knowledge cannot be read literally in the writings of man -- it cannot be literally written in scriptures or religious writings -- it cannot be taught by a teacher or rabbi -- because it can only be taught to the person individually by the Divine Mind whose thinking and mindset is capable of receiving the Higher Spiritual Knowledge.  

When Jesus stated to the Jews that the Kingdom would never come outwardly, because it is "within you" (Luke 17:20-21), this is "...knowledge based on personal experience ...based on direct participation with the divine" within the Mind of the disciple, as the person begins to open what is portrayed as the "narrow gate", and experiences the Kingdom coming within them -- i.e., "Then Jesus said to them, Truly I tell you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God arrive with power" (Mark 9:1).  Which is why Peter acknowledged the coming of the Kingdom when he stated:  ”looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God” (2 Pet 3:12).  Which provokes the question: How could the believers in that time-frame of the first-century, hasten or speed up the coming of the Kingdom, if it was coming externally in the outer world?   Yet, in every generation, doomsday prophets have predicted Armageddon and the coming of the Kingdom in their lifetime.  That modern Christians continue to preach their End Times doctrines, is because they are as the Jews who threw away the Key of Knowledge/Gnosis -- which is the application of the Gospels within them. 

If the Spiritual Knowledge could not be read literally in the scriptures where it could be learned and discerned by the Jewish scholars, then what is indicated is the fact that Jesus taught that there is an esoteric meaning to the scriptures that is not apparent or even understood by reading the literal text of the scriptures.  And if the meaning of the scriptures could be simply understood by reading the text, then Jesus never would have portrayed the leaders of the Jews as the "spawn of the devil" who threw away the Key of Knowledge/Gnosis.  And this is demonstrated when Jesus said to the Jews: "Why do you misunderstand what I am saying? It is because your spiritual ears are deaf and you are unable to hear the truth of My word" (John 8:43 Amplified Version).  As to why the Jews could not understand the spiritual teachings and concepts, Jesus explained: "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, refusing to uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, because he is a liar and the father of lies" (John 8:43-44).   

Jesus did not come to be worshiped -- i.e., "Good master, what good shall I do that I may have life everlasting?" Jesus rejected being called "good master" -- as seen when Jesus answered him: "And Jesus said to him, Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone" (Luke 18:19).  Which means that Jesus came to provide the Key of Knowledge/Gnosis that would enable the lost prodigal sons to open the inner "narrow gate" -- as seen in his words: "...you did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering” into the Kingdom, and return to their Heavenly Father.  Which provokes the question: What if you worship Jesus and throw away the Key of Knowledge/Gnosis -- rejecting the Message and the body of essential knowledge/gnosis as hearsay -- and in worshiping Jesus you are obstructing those who were attempting to enter as the Jews did -- portraying those who seek the esoteric knowledge as heretics -- then the god you are worshiping is in fact the Devil -- i.e., "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires...".     

In the same way that the Jews could not comprehend the Mysteries of the Kingdom because they threw away the Key of Knowledge, the Christians in their worldly carnal misinterpretation of the Gospel teachings, rejected even the sacred body of Knowledge that Jesus taught.  And this fact is demonstrated throughout most of the Christian world where the word Gnosis is condemned as heresy -- and from a faith-based Christian perspective, is to be rejected.   So, what this means is that Jesus accused the Jews who he portrayed as "...experts in the law", of throwing away the Key to acquire Gnosis -- which means that both Christianity and Judaism should be religions that seek to acquire  Spiritual Knowledge or Gnosis that is not presented in the literal text of the scriptures where even those who are "experts in the law" remain blind to the spiritual meaning -- which Spiritual Knowledge can be portrayed as the Divine Manna of the Kingdom.  In the case of modern Christians, they reject even seeking Knowledge/Gnosis -- they remain totally ignorant of using the Key of Knowledge to open the inner "narrow gate" to the Kingdom -- and they slam the door for those seeking to enter.  Which means that modern Christianity is representative of Gospel Apostasy that rejects the teachings of Jesus, and opponents of Christ.   Therefore, the question must be asked: Would Jesus praise Christians for rejecting the Spiritual Knowledge he came to impart to mankind?  Hosea 4:6 warns  that Christians will be rejected and  -- "...destroyed for lack of knowledge."  Isn't this the rejection of Christ by the modern Christian? 

If the question is posed: Why should the word Gnosis be translated Divine Manna instead of the common knowledge drawn from the literal text of the scriptures?  In the allegorical account of Exodus when Moses was guiding the Children of Israel through the wilderness, the substance they were provided for physical nourishment was portrayed as manna.  Therefore, Divine Manna must be recognized as God-Given -- and is that knowledge-substance that only the Divine Mind can impart and reveal to those who embrace the Gospel teachings with the Whole of their Mind and Being -- Manna that cannot be read and found in the literal text of the scriptures without applying the Key -- Manna that cannot be written by the hands of men -- neither can Gnosis be written in any of the languages of man -- Gnosis cannot be taught by a rabbi or teacher -- and can only be taught and received in accord with the person's spiritual level of Consciousness -- and this Spiritual Knowledge/Gnosis can only be taught and imparted into the person by the Divine Mind -- i.e., "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me" (John 6:45).   What we call religious teachings is the mindset and thinking that a person must embrace, in order to begin to receive the Divine Manna that can only be received directly from the Divine Mind of God.  Therefore, this verse demonstrates conclusively that (1) even when a person is an expert in the written word of the scriptures, they are lacking the essential Knowledge that can be portrayed as the Spiritual Knowledge/Gnosis or Divine Manna of God and the Kingdom; and (2) there is no such thing as Gnostic scriptures that a person learns Gnosis from writings composed by the hands of man.  All scriptures portray the inner journey that the person must travail, in order to begin to receive the Divine Manna in accord with the development and depth of the person's mind -- i.e., "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me" (Luke 9:23).  Further stating: "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me" (Matt 10:38).  And the Gospel of Mark quotes Jesus as stating: "Then Jesus called the crowd to Him along with His disciples, and He told them, If anyone wants to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me" (Mark 8:34). . 

 

  Modern Science Confirms Man's Spiritual Esoteric Metaphysic Source:   When rightly understood, the Original Gospel Teachings was a path of mental and spiritual development that enabled those who ardently embraced and followed the teachings, to acquire the spiritual knowledge of higher reality beyond the limitations of organic man known as the Mysteries of God and Creation.  And when Jesus was asked why the masses of people could not receive the spiritual knowledge and understand the esoteric meaning of the Gospel teachings, Jesus replied: “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand” (Mark 4:11-12).  And if we pose the question:  Why has intellectual limitations been imposed upon mankind?  You will find the answer to this question in the words: "When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me" (1 Cor 13:11).  It is a Fact of Life that an immature mind cannot comprehend what is above and beyond their mind's level of development.  And what this means is that the body of metaphysical esoteric knowledge which is beyond the comprehension of the mind of organic (carnal) man, was portrayed in the Greek language as Gnosis -- which is defined as: "...In a religious context, gnosis is mystical or esoteric knowledge based on direct participation with the divine"  Which means that for a person to acquire spiritual knowledge defined as gnosis which can be portrayed as the Divine Manna received directly from the Divine Mind, they must live a lifestyle and mindset that enables them to draw from their own "...mystical or esoteric knowledge based on direct participation with the divine."  An important insight into the very essence of the genuine teachings of Jesus and the original uncorrupted Gospels is contained in an article in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.     Once again we see the phrase that Spiritual Knowledge or Gnosis can only be receive through direct "...contact with the transcendent" -- i.e., intimate interaction with the Divine Mind of God.   What is expressed in these words is of the utmost importance.  What they mean is that the original teachings of Jesus revealed to the community of followers the means to develop the minds of all Christians as mystics who were able to see and understand the Mysteries of God as demonstrated in the words: "...From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.   And therein lies the problem as seen in the fact that modern Christianity has virtually nothing in common with the original Gospel teachings which were condemned as heresy by the fourth century Church of Constantine -- and remains lost to this very day.  

If we pose the question: Is there any proof of what can be portrayed as man's esoteric reality that the vase majority of people remain blind to?  Or, we can rephrase this question in the words: Is there scientific proof of the analogy of Plato's Cave of illusions that are really symbols of allusions?  The problem is that the often ignored cutting-edge voice of the modern scientific researcher has proven that the Source of all that you see -- including your own Self -- is all metaphysical.  What this means that what we see with our physical eyes and senses, is a type of shadow-image that is being projected from an UNSEEN METAPHYSICAL SOURCE.  When physicist Walter Thirring stated about the nature and reality of physical 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.”  What he was stating is that what man sees as concrete matter, is being projected from an Unseen-Metaphysical Source-Field -- and the Source that is projecting the shadow-image that we see,  exists beyond our organic vision.  Thus, in total agreement we have the statement by astronomer James Jeans: “Today there is a wide measure of agreement… that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”; and the statement by astronomer Arthur Eddington: “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff.”  In like manner physicist and Nobel prize winner John Archibald Wheeler stated that "every item in the physical world has at bottom ...an immaterial source and explanation ...that all things physical are information-theoretic in origin and that this is a participatory universe".  More recently, cyberneticist David Foster described an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source. The holographic reality says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space. The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”  Einstein confirmed these statement prominent scientists when he stated: “Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter, there is only Light and Sound.” And in total agreement with Walther Thirring, Einstein wrote in his autobiography: “All my attempts to adapt the theoretical foundation of physics to this [new type of] knowledge failed completely. It was as if the ground had been pulled out from under one, with no firm foundation to be seen anywhere, upon which one could have built”. What this means is exactly as portrayed by Einstein when he stated: “We may therefore regard matter as being constituted by the regions of space in which the field is extremely intense… There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality”.   What this means is that what we see as physical forms and matter, is being projected by an unseen metaphysical source that is beyond the ability of man's undeveloped mind and senses to see and understand.  And this largely inconceivable metaphysical reality is confirmed by Einstein in the quotation where he speaks of our physical presence as the manifestation of frequencies -- i.e., "We are slowed down sound and light waves, a walking bundle of frequencies tuned into the cosmos. We are souls dressed up in sacred biochemical garments and our bodies are the instruments through which our souls play their music".  In these words of Einstein and other scientists, we can see the analogy of Plato's Cave being presented.  What Einstein is stating is that the physical images that we see with our physical eyes, is really shadow-images that are being projected from an invisible Metaphysical Reality that is beyond organic man's ability to see the actual source -- i.e., "...There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality.”  Which means that so long as a person does not embrace a path in life that develops their inward-looking intuitive attributes of mind, they will remain blind to the source of the images they see and interact with. 

When the foregoing is understood, science has posed the exact same statement as the Gospel account of Jesus with respect to the absolute need for each person to develop the ability to see and understand the Metaphysical Sources of what we observe and interact with in the life we are presently living?  What this means is that the Gospel teachings were not just a system of belief in God -- but rather, the Gospel teachings were in fact a system of mental and spiritual development that enables the person to embrace the process of mental-development and spiritual-deepening that opens our inner metaphysical resources of mind that enables us to (1) Know our True-Self that is projecting our human consciousness into this world; and (2) ultimately to open the "narrow" Gate of Eden that enables us to intimately interact with the Divine Mind of God that is our True-Source of Mind and Being; and (3) we have been provided with a path of Natural Law that enables us to develop our higher resources of Mind as explored at When Man Meets Woman http://TheRealFactsOfLife.Ebionite.com#WhenManMeetsWoman .  And what this also means is that so long as we adhere to a faux-science that rejects the metaphysical and clings to a false three-dimensional reality that has long outlived its usefulness -- and we continue to worship an unknown faux-god of our own creation -- that we will remain a prisoner of Plato's Cave of Illusions.  And if the question is asked: How long will we remain a prisoner?  In view of the fact that modern science has proven reincarnation (see Science Proves Reincarnation http://ChristianReincarnation.org#Science ), and it has been confirmed that the pre-Nicene genuine teachings demonstrate that Jesus taught the reality of the pre-existent Soul that evolves to Wholeness and Perfection over the course of many lives (see Pre-Nicene Church Taught Reincarnation http://ChristianReincarnation.org#PreNiceneChurch ), the answer is that we will remain a prisoner of Plato's Cave over the course of however many lifetimes we fail to follow and embrace the Original Gospel Teachings which the modern Church has declared to be heresy (see The Corruption Of The Words That God Spoke To Mankind https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2024/01/the-corruption-of-words-god-spoke-to.html ).    

 

The Effect Of Bad Beliefs About God: Erroneous beliefs inhibit mental and spiritual development.  In the Clementine Homilies, the Apostle Peter warns his disciple Clement that Simon Magus has the ability to greatly deceive the Gentiles, because they (the Gentiles) fail to understand the traditions used by the authors in the composition of the scriptures.  And with respect to the true purpose and objective of the scriptures, the statement of Peter's that is not at all understood today -- i.e, "...Wherefore they charge no one to teach, unless he has first learned how the Scriptures must be used" -- is parallel to a statement of Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement where Peter is quoted as explaining with respect to a discussion on the nature of the scriptures when Simon Magus stated to Peter: “Then said Simon: 'You are manifestly avoiding the hearing of the charge from the Scriptures against your God.'" To which Peter then replied: "'You yourself appear to me to be doing this; for he who avoids the order of inquiry, does not wish a true investigation to be made. Hence I, who proceed in an orderly manner, and wish that the writer should first be considered, am manifestly desirous to walk in a straight path’”.  

What, then, the intelligent seeker must ask, is the order of inquiry?  In these words are noted the most profound error of both Bible believers as well as the critics today who only perceive what is literally written in the narrative of the written word.   Believers see and read the scriptures in the manner predicated by their predefined doctrines of belief, while ignoring the very warning of the scriptures that it is their own perception of the Word that is in error.   Simon wants to engage Peter and use the scriptures to prove that the world was created by a lesser god.   Peter states that By Design, anyone can prove almost any doctrine by using the scriptures -- and therefore, before the scriptures can be understood, the “writer should first be considered” -- which means that unless you read the scriptures in accord with their original intended purpose, you render the scriptures worthless.  Why?  The answer is that "...the scriptures are exactly what the original authors intended them to be".   And in the case of scriptures, if the person fails to first understand "...how the Scriptures must be used", whatever interpretation they embrace will be in grave error.

In the quotation of Peter preserved in his disciple Clement's writings, Peter states that because of the believers inability to understand the  original vision and objectives of the authors of the scriptures, Peter portrays them as being easily seduced by Simon Magus, because they dwell at a level of mind whereby they hold what Peter portrays as bad and erroneous beliefs about God.   Thus, Peter warns that while those who can be portrayed as Spiritual Israel understand the "traditions" which the authors of the scriptures employed -- and in understanding the "traditions", they will be prepared to better understand the deeper spiritual meaning of the scriptures -- both the carnal Jews and the Gentiles who don't understand the "traditions" or the higher spiritual purpose of the scriptures, will be greatly deceived and states: “And with us, indeed, who have had handed down from our forefathers the worship of the God who made all things, and also the mystery of the books which are able to deceive, he [Simon Magus] will not prevail; but with those from amongst the Gentiles who have the polytheistic fancy bred in them, and who know not the falsehoods of the Scriptures, he will prevail much. And not only he; but if any other shall recount to those from among the Gentiles any vain, dreamlike, richly set out story against God, he will be believed, because from their childhood their minds are accustomed to take in things spoken against God. And few there shall be of them, as a few out of a multitude, who through ingenuousness shall not be willing so much as to hear an evil word against the God who made all things.   And to these alone from amongst the Gentiles it shall be vouchsafed to be saved. Let not any one of you, therefore, altogether complain of Simon, or of any one else; for nothing happens unjustly, since even the falsehoods of Scripture are with good reason presented for a test.”

  Developmental Knowledge/Gnosis = Fruit Of Development:  As a sincere seeker embraces the Gospel Teachings -- living in strict accord with the original teachings -- Spiritual Knowledge/Gnosis is the Fruit of Development.  Erroneous or Bad Beliefs about God cancels or undermines all mental and spiritual development.  The article in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, portrays an ultra-important aspect of the Original Gospel teachings that is totally absent from the dogma of the modern Church where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.   To even suggest that one of the primary purposes of the Gospel teachings was to bring about the deepening, heightening and enlargement of human consciousness would be totally rejected by the modern faith-based believer.  Why?   Very simply, because The Original Gospel Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Modern Church Dogma.    Thus, under the heading of Gnosticism, the Encyclopedia Britannica states: “Among the majority of the followers of the movement, 'Gnosis' was understood not as meaning 'knowledge' or 'understanding', in our sense of the word, but 'revelation'.  These little Gnostic sects and groups all lived in the conviction that they possessed a secret and mysterious knowledge, in no way accessible to those outside, which was not to be proved or propagated, but believed in by the initiated, and anxiously guarded as a secret.  This knowledge of theirs was not based on reflection, on scientific inquiry and proof, but on revelation.  It was derived directly from the times of primitive Christianity, from the Savior himself and from his disciples and friends, with whom they claimed to be connected by a secret tradition, or else from later prophets, of whom many sects boasted.  It was laid down in wonderful mystic writings, which were in the possession of the various circles”.  

Why was the higher spiritual knowledge "in no way accessible to those outside" the group?  Because without living the necessary spiritual life, the body-mind cannot vibrate at the higher frequencies necessary to comprehend the spiritual knowledge.  And when Jesus was asked why the masses of people could receive the spiritual knowledge and not understand the teachings, Jesus replied: “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand” (Mark 4:11-12).  Great insight into this inability to see and understand can be understood by the statement of the second century Christian Church Father Clement of Alexandria, as quoted in Smith & Wace's Bible dictionary where Clement presents the difference between the faith of the entry-level Christian, in contradistinction to those to did as Paul commanded -- i.e., "Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity..." (Heb 6:1) -- and in Clement's portrayal of a Gnostic vs the elementary believer of the simple-faith, we see the result of Wholeness and Maturity: “Faith is the foundation; knowledge the superstructure, by knowledge faith is perfected, for to know is more than to believe. Faith is a summary knowledge of urgent truths; knowledge a sure demonstration of what has been received through faith, being itself reared upon faith through the teachings of the Lord. Thus the Gnostic grasps the complete truth of all revelation from the beginning of the world to the end, piercing to the depths of scripture, of which the believer tastes the surface only. As a consequence of this intelligent sympathy with the Divine Will, the Gnostic becomes in perfect unity in himself, and as far as possible like God. Definite outward observances cease to have any value for one whose being is brought into abiding harmony with that which is eternal; he has no wants, no passions; he rests in the contemplation of God, which is and will be his unfailing blessedness.”

When Clement portrays the Gnostic Christian as being in “…unity in himself”, and developing maturity and wholeness to the degree where they have become “…like God” and …brought into abiding harmony with that which is eternal”, it is at that time when the disciple becomes the True Christian by entering the final stage of spiritual development, and fulfills the biblical requirement as set forth by Jesus in the words: “You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matt 5:48).   When rightfully understood, perfection cannot be achieved apart from wholeness -- and only the person who has fulfilled this requirement set forth by Jesus in the Gospels, can perceive the world through a higher reality that organic man is virtually blind to.  

That the carnal Jews could not see beyond the symbols of the allegory, and their eyes and hearts were hardened so they could not comprehend the true meaning of the scriptures, is readily understood where Paul states that “their minds were blinded” by the Laws of God, “for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament… even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart” (2 Cor 3:14-15).   The vail that inhibits and blocks the person's ability to see and comprehend the spiritual meaning of the allegorical catalysts in the scriptures, is the effect of the Natural Laws that limits a person's perceptive-understanding to the "frequency and vibration" that corresponds to their own mind.  Jesus taught his disciples how to open their mind, and utilize those levels of consciousness that are beyond and out of the frequency range of organic (carnal) man.  The 2nd century Church Father Clement of Alexandria in his Stromata explained: “...now that the Savior has taught the Apostles, the unwritten rendering of the written, this has been handed down also to us”.   What Clement is stating is that it was Jesus who taught his disciples the inner spiritual meaning of the scriptures by opening their minds so their understanding could pierce through the garb of the allegorical enigmas that blind the perception of carnal men -- i.e., "Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures" (Luke 24:45 NIV).   Yet, while the Gentiles will see a very different message than the carnal Jews, both will be equally incapable of comprehending the spiritual meaning that requires a mind of expanded consciousness to understand.

In the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter portrays the scriptures as the "...books with the power to deceive".  Those who fail to understand both the traditions, and the nature of these writings, from the perception of the original objectives which the scriptures were supposed to bring about, cannot understand the higher spiritual meaning.   Further, it was stated by the Apostle Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement that each person (who does not apply the Key of Knowledge in their interpretation of the scriptures) only sees in the scriptures, what they are predisposed to see and believe -- i.e., “Therefore Simon, who is going to discuss in public with us tomorrow, is bold against the monarchy of God, wishing to produce many statements from these Scriptures, to the effect that there are many gods, and a certain one who is not He who made this world, but who is superior to Him; and, at the same time, he is going to offer many scriptural proofs. But we also can easily show many passages from them that He who made the world alone is God, and that there is none other besides Him. But if any one shall wish to speak otherwise, he also shall be able to produce proofs from them at his pleasure. For the Scriptures say all manner of things, that no one of those who inquire ungratefully may find the truth, but simply what he wishes to find...”.   What this means is that the scriptures are so designed to bring about that condition where each and every person is able to see and confirm their doctrines of belief which they are predisposed to look for in the written text.    And more important is the statement that those who attempt to read the scriptures from a differing mindset and objectives than the intended purpose of the original authors, will remain blind to "...the truth, but simply [see] what he wishes to find...” in the scriptures.  

What this means is that Christians who open the Gospels to see the Jesus-god of Constantine, see what they are predisposed to see and believe.  But so too does Atheists.  As well as people from other religions.  

 

 

 

 

It is also important to recognize and comprehend that each person's ability to receive and be taught by the Divine Mind, is in accord with their desire, willingness and sincere effort to become the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed (see http://SowerAndTheSeed.Ebionite.com ).  When it is realized that the “good ground” is symbolic of our condition of mind, body and the life we are living, then we must recognize that our whole conception of the teachings of Jesus as a purely faith-based revelation, is seriously flawed.  If a believer holds what can be portrayed as erroneous beliefs about: (1) the scriptures and their proper interpretation; (2) erroneous beliefs about Jesus and his relationship to God; (3) the mindset and/or lifestyle that enables the believer to evolve into the "good ground", (4) all of which is necessary to bring about spiritual growth and development.  Therefore, when Jesus rejected the Jews for throwing away the Key of Knowledge, he presented a warning with respect to each person's ability to understand the spiritual meaning of the scriptures: “Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13 KJV) -- or, in the wording of the modern language New Living Translation: “But if you can’t understand this story, how will you understand all the others I am going to tell?”  Which means that this parable is the bottom line of interpreting and understanding the meaning of the scriptures and the Gospel teachings.  If you fail to become all that is spiritually personified in the refinement by becoming the "good ground" in the parable, then it will remain impossible for you to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the scriptures -- and you will not understand the meaning of the words of Jesus.  Therefore, those people who preach that the Word of God is universal to any and all lifestyles -- or, that the meaning of the Bible is simple and plain and can be easily understood -- simply do not comprehend the very first principles of what this verse of scripture proclaims to all who would call themselves the people of God.  Moreover, the Bible itself puts us on notice that only the people who are the "good ground", are able to even begin to understand the true meaning of the scriptures -- i.e., “But if you can’t understand this story, how will you understand all the others I am going to tell?”

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, it is this outward interpretation that constitutes throwing away the Key of Knowledge/Gnosis.  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 the words of Jesus are true -- and the Kingdom is within you -- then the question that Christians should be asking, is how must the Kingdom 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?"   In further clarification, the TEV version of the this verse states: “How terrible for you teachers of the Law! You have kept the key that opens the door to the house of knowledge; you yourselves will not go in, and you stop those who are trying to go in!” (Luke 11:52 TEV).  Thus, the scriptures when properly used, have the ability to "open the [inner] door to the House of Knowledge" -- and their outward interpretations whereby they seek the Kingdom to come outwardly (see The End Times - Armageddon/Rapture - The Coming Of The Kingdom http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#EndTimes ),  inhibits believers from "going in [the House of Knowledge]" -- and by teaching the people their outward interpretations, they inhibited the community of believers from entering the House of Knowledge.

If the scriptures could simply be read and understood, then Jesus never would have portrayed the leaders of the Jews as the "spawn of the devil"  who threw away the Key of Knowledge/Gnosis.  And this is demonstrated when Jesus said to the Jews: "Why do you misunderstand what I am saying? It is because your spiritual ears are deaf and you are unable to hear the truth of My word" (John 8:43 Amplified Version).  As to why the Jews could not understand the spiritual teachings and concepts, Jesus explained: "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, refusing to uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, because he is a liar and the father of lies" (John 8:43-44).   

If the Jews believed they were the people of God in accord with what they read in their scriptures, then what prompted Jesus to portray the Jews and the Pharisees as the "spawn of the Devil" -- i.e., "Why do you not understand what I say?  Jesus asked?   "It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, refusing to uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, because he is a liar and the father of lies" (John 8:43-44). Thus, the answer: Their beliefs and doctrines which they taught and maintained, locked their thinking into a very carnal and low intellectual level of thinking that inhibited the people from understanding the spiritual meaning of the scriptures, as well as making any progress in their spiritual development.  Jesus portrayed the Jews as "blind guides" who led the people into the proverbial ditch.  Why?  Because as "blind guides", they threw away what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge -- just as the Christians do today.  Which provokes the question: If the leaders of the Jews were incapable of understanding the teachings of Jesus -- i.e., "you not understand what I say" -- and were portrayed as the "spawn of the Devil" because they threw away the Key of Knowledge, then we must pose the question: If the modern Christian also throws away what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge, then aren't they also the "spawn of the Devil"?  

The vast majority of Christians have ignored the warning of the Epistle of James: "Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly" (James 3:1).  Why would those who teach the interpretation and meaning of the Gospels be subject to greater judgment?  Because all Christians are warned not to teach others (see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ) -- and are required and limited to nothing more than to guide others in their inner journey to become At-One With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement .  And this to the degree that those who teach have committed the sin that Peter warns tarnishes the required wedding garment -- i.e., in the Homilies of Clement, Peter is quoted as warning the believer that it is a sin to seek out any other teacher than the True Prophet within them -- as seen in the words: "But the ways in which this garment may be spotted are these: If any one withdraw from God the Father and Creator of all, receiving another teacher besides Christ" (see TheCall To The Wedding Banquette http://TheCall.Nazirene.org ).  Which means that all the modern day clergy and authorities have tarnished their own "wedding garment", and are themselves outcasts to the Kingdom which can rightly be portrayed as spiritual scalawags and carpet baggers. 

Can you just read the scriptures and interpret them?  Jesus said: "The Spirit gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life" (John 6:63).  The pre-Nicene Church Father Origen who is portrayed as “…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”, stated the same thing when he wrote “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics).  What this means is that the historical or literal interpretation is virtually worthless, and only the spiritual meaning of the scriptures are life-giving.    

This exact same reality is expressed by Clement, the disciple of the Apostle Peter who quotes Peter where he warned: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".   Why can't the scriptures be read in accord with  "...the understanding of our own mind"?  Peter then explains that "...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."   Why?  Because the organic consciousness of man attempts to relate the meaning and interpretation of the scriptures to the physical -- either literally or historically.  And this literal/historical interpretation is what Jesus portrayed as "...the flesh profits nothing" -- and Origen portrayed as "...worthless"

 

 

 

  

What are the implications of this rejection and condemnation of Spiritual Knowledge by both Jews and Christians?  This rejection of the Sacred Knowledge, is what causes believers to be portrayed as spiritually destitute at Hosea 4:6 -- "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you".  Further evidence of both the Esoteric Knowledge and/or Gnosis  is found in Paul's statement at 1 Corinthians 2:7,10,13. "But we speak God’s wisdom, a hidden mystery...God has revealed to us through the Spirit... And we speak of these things in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit". is demonstrated in the enlightenment of the heart, understanding and the enlightenment of the eyes at https://biblehub.com/greek/pepho_tismenous_5461.htm 

The early Christian Valentinius quoted Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians when he made reference to Gnosis Kardias -- or, the enlightened eyes of the heart -- "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints" (Eph 1:18).   If theses words were spoken to congregation of believing and committed Christians, then the question then becomes: What did the baptized and committed Christians need to do, to develop the "eyes to see"?  And while it is clear that Paul wanted very much to speak about the Mystery of the Gospel but could not, is the reason he portrayed himself as an ambassador in bonds: "And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak" (see Eph 6:19-20).  When Jesus accused the Jews of both (1) failing to enter the Kingdom, and (2) also of hindering or obstructing those who were striving to enter the Kingdom, he was making reference to the Sacred Knowledge/Gnosis that must be recognized as the Divine Manna of the Kingdom that could only be received and understood by the serious seeker -- and that this Sacred Knowledge/Gnosis can only be receive directly from the Divine Mind of God.  Therefore, Jesus was making reference to the essential Sacred Knowledge that the person must know and utilize in their life (works/actions/thoughts), which would enable the prodigal son/daughter to enter through the "narrow gate", and be restored to the Edenic Kingdom.  The fact that modern Christians cannot enter the Kingdom while still in the physical body, means that the Church threw this Sacred Knowledge away -- Knowledge that the Church declared to he heresy -- and like the Jews, they both fail to properly utilize what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge that enables the person to enter the Kingdom while still physically alive in the body-vessel as confirmed in the Gospel of Philip: "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".     

Why couldn't Paul simply speak plainly to the congregations at Corinth and the Ephesians?  Why couldn't Jesus simply reveal the Sacred Knowledge he portrayed as Gnosis, to ALL the people who came to listen to his teachings -- i.e., "And when he was alone, those around him with the twelve asked him about the parables.  The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12)?  Was Jesus concealing the Sacred Knowledge of the Kingdom from the majority of people?  And only revealing this Knowledge to a very small select group or followers?  Unless you can correctly answer these two questions, you are not in any manner prepared to hear and understand the spiritual meaning of the Gospels.  Which provokes the question: If Jesus loved them, then why didn't he reveal the Sacred Knowledge to everyone?  And perhaps even more important is the reality that: Unless you understand why the Sacred Knowledge could only be revealed to the select few, and not revealed to all those who came to hear Jesus teach, you are very much like those who are portrayed in Hosea 4:5 who are destroyed for lack of Knowledge. 

It is important to be conscious of the fact that the Christians who Paul was making reference to, were baptized and confirmed faith-based believers who were yet of an organic consciousness that Paul stated was too earthly to comprehend the Sacred Knowledge (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ).  What Paul attested to was that  the mind of organic man who has yet to evolve through the the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening, could only comprehend what Paul portrayed as the "milk" of the Gospels, because the body of Christians were incapable of comprehending the spiritual meaning of he Gospel teachings.  Which means that belief in Jesus and him crucified from an historical perspective, was the "milk" of the Gospels -- i.e., a belief that faith-based Christians who were still of a natural organic consciousness could embrace, prior to mentally evolving through the transformative process that enables them to begin to comprehend man's higher Soul and Spiritual Reality.  Which is why Paul warned: “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).  The NLT translation reads: "But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means".  What is the difference between a Christian of a "natural" mindset, and one who is "spiritual"?  Thus, it is imperative to ask the question: What is the "natural man"? The mental condition of mankind that Paul is making reference to, would just as well be portrayed as "organic" -- or, of the physical body.   The "natural man" , is the "organic" human being.  Therefore, mere belief in the historical man Jesus does not in any way transform the person from the "natural man", and change his "frequency and vibration" of mind into a "spiritual man".  Only the mind that is no longer organic and of limited by human consciousness, is capable of being mentally nourished by the "solid food" or higher spiritual meaning of the Gospel that requires "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” -- which is not a condition of mind that is the result of faith and belief in the historical man Jesus. 

Mystery Religions Vs The Original Gospel Teachings:

It can be stated that the biblical authors were writing to you the person reading this, when the question is posed: Why is the knowledge of man's higher Soul and Spiritual Reality perceived as "foolishness" to the "natural mind of man"?  To the degree that the mind of natural organic man is incapable of  comprehending what can be portrayed as higher concepts of reality?  Because in his natural undeveloped (carnal/earthly) condition of mind that can be rightly portrayed as organic human consciousness, natural man is three-dimensional in his thinking, and lacks the developmental depth, wholeness and balance to comprehend his own higher reality of Mind, Being and Spirit.  In the words of Nikola Tesla: “If you wish to understand the Universe  think of energy, frequency and vibration.  In the case of organic man, as the person's mind evolves, there is a change in the "frequency and vibration" that enables them to see and understand from a higher spiritual perspective.  

Mystery Religions attempt to teach the person the knowledge they need in order to advance.  The core essence of Judaism as represented in Kabbalah, is a Mystery Religion.  As was Mithraism and most other Greek Roman religions.  Today, such groups as the Masons, Rosicrucians and others are mystery religions.  They have teachers and secret knowledge which they only convey to initiates and disciples of that religion. 

When rightly understood, the Gospels were composed to free the people from the Mystery Religion environment where the person had to become an Initiate who was taught by a teacher or rabbi.  And this is why Jesus commanded his followers: "But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have One Teacher, and you are all brethren" (Matt 23:8 -- see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ).  In contradistinction, Jesus taught that if a person understands the Natural Laws -- and embraces those Laws in order to bring about Wholeness -- that the Divine Mind within you will develop and teach you all the Sacred Knowledge and Mysteries of God.  In explanation, what Jesus taught was that the depth and frequency of your mind, is the result of the Natural Laws which maintains your level of Consciousness.  Why does the Natural Laws maintain your level of Mind and Consciousness?  Because the Natural Laws monitor your level of development in the manner of a Living Bio-Feedback Organism, and these same Laws supply to your mind the necessary mental-nourishment that your mind must be fed or consumed by the Mind to advance -- a process that can allegorically be portrayed as climbing the proverbial Jacob's Ladder of Advancement (see below @ Jacob's Ladder).  

In the Image I present the traditional picture of the Yin and Yang with the statement of Nikola Tesla: "If you wish to understand the Universe, think of energy, frequency and vibration."  Thus, when you understand the Natural Laws as they were allegorically portrayed in the original Gospel account of Jesus' teachings, this interaction of opposites Yin/Female and Yang/Male is presented 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’” .  

It is important to recognize that when Clement wrote the above teaching in his Epistle to a first century congregation of Christians, he did so in the expectation that the people to whom he was writing would understand the great truths he was presenting to them. That the Kingdom or End Times would and could only come when "...two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.  And the fact that this teaching that is also found in the Gospel of Thomas, which is also contained in a first century Epistle from an elder to a congregation of believers in that time-frame, could not be contained and understood in a letter or epistle to a congregation of Christians today, is merely one example of the fact that the dogma and thinking of the modern Church has virtually nothing in common with the original teachings of Jesus known as TheWay (see The Original Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Church Dogma http://TheCall.Nazirene.org#OriginalTeachings  ).

That modern Christians look outwardly for the Kingdom to come upon the earth, is because like the Jews, they threw away the Key of Knowledge.  

 

 

Which provokes the question: Has the requirements to enter the Kingdom changed in order to accommodate the dogmatic corruption of the Church? Has Truth and Higher Spiritual Reality been discarded and thrown away, because the Church threw this body of essential Knowledge pertaining to the Coming of the Kingdom away? Or, does modern Christians dwell in a self-imposed Diaspora of abject Spiritual Ignorance which was brought about by the massive corruption of the scriptures (see http://BibleCorruption.com  ), and the suppression of the body of essential knowledge that is necessary to restore the lost prodigal son to his rightly place in the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.

 

The Gospel teachings of Jesus are designed to develop and advance the mind through the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  As the mind of the person develops -- greater understanding of the Natural Laws are brought about as the mind evolves level upon level -- thereby enabling the person to comprehend their higher Soul and Spiritual Reality as their depth of mind increases -- i.e., the "eyes of the heart" begins to open and look inward toward the Inner Kingdom (Luke 17:21) -- and the Divine Manna/Gnosis is taught and received.   Neither Jesus or Paul could not teach the Divine Manna/Gnosis -- because the Sacred Knowledge cannot be taught in the words or concepts of man -- and only received by the Spirit as the mind evolves level upon level through the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  

Therefore, only a sincere believer who has embraced the Gospel teachings in Word, Thought, Desire and Deed/Actions, can begin the transformative process that invokes the Natural Laws and enables them to begin to receive the Gnosis/Knowledge from the Indwelling Divine Mind of God.   What is this Higher Spiritual-Knowledge that cannot be written in a book, scriptures or faux-Gnostic writings -- cannot be taught to them from another person (teacher/rabbi) -- and cannot be revealed or taught to them from any earthly source?  Spiritual Understanding and Comprehension requires the development of the mind as set forth in the symbolism of the cross -- i.e., "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me" (Luke 9:23). Further stating: "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me" (Matt 10:38). And the Gospel of Mark quotes Jesus as stating: "Then Jesus called the crowd to Him along with His disciples, and He told them, If anyone wants to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me" (Mark 8:34). Jesus did not say that you must believe that he was crucified. And this is further clarified where Jesus states that you must carry your own cross: "And whoever does not carry his cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple" (Luke 14:27). What Jesus is stating is that you must "come after [him]" by taking up [your own] cross daily -- that you must carry your own cross "EVERY DAY" (DAILY) -- and with your own cross, you must bring about and submit to your own crucifixion. Further requiring the follower to "deny himself", which can be portrayed as the meaning of the word Ebionite, which means the "poor ones" -- which can be portrayed as those who are poor to the thinking, mindset and lifestyle of this world. But what does this mean? What does carrying your own cross DAILY, entail? Belief in the cross as an event in the life of the historical man Jesus, does not in any manner equate to taking up your own cross every day of your life, and carrying it to your own crucifixion. Thus, while our knowledge of the cross that each person must carry is crucial, few Christians possess the in-depth knowledge to understand the symbolism and meaning -- especially when they rely upon the historical image of the crucifix that portrays the Cross in an historical context that is relevant only to the historical man Jesus.  No other words have been more misunderstood than what is personified in the deeper meaning of the Cross than the critical concepts of crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension. Let us just say they are so loaded with heavy dogmatic baggage, that their actual spiritual meaning is hopelessly lost when it is realized that the words apply to each and every person in human existence. While crucifixion obviously refers to an old method of executing people by hanging their bodies’ up on a cross and letting them die. If we believe that is the meaning of crucifixion when used in the scriptures, then it prevents us from understanding that it can have many other meanings pertaining to the nature of life and how the lost prodigal son gains freedom from the Citizen of this, the Far Country, in his quest to return to the Edenic Kingdom.

With respect to Hosea 4:6 -- "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you".  Why would believers who are portrayed as the People of God, be destroyed for a lack of Knowledge?  What knowledge would even be necessary for what Christians portray as Saved or Salvation?  Modern Christianity teaches salvation by grace, and rejects the teaching on the necessity of works or actions or esoteric knowledge -- i.e., a common Christian statement is: "You must believe in salvation by grace alone, and that salvation is immediate and eternal upon acceptance of Jesus as a one-time sacrifice for your sins, and not obtained through works, sacraments, traditions or merits of our own".  Yet, in the Revelation it is warned: "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth" (Rev 3:15-16).  What works are being made reference to?  Someone who is cold to the Gospel, is an unbeliever -- while someone who is hot, is on fire as a true Disciple of TheWay. But someone who is lukewarm, is very clearly a believer or member of the Church who is complacent, and fails to bring about the works of the spirit that is required to walk in TheWay.  Thus, Jesus warned: "And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more" (Luke 12:47-48). Thus, the modern Christian simply has no means to understand why and how the lukewarm believer will be beaten with the stripes of greater judgment, than the unbeliever who is portrayed as a sinner who "...did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes."  So what is the fate of those who "...did commit things worthy of stripes"?  -- If salvation is by grace alone, why did the sinners receive far less punishment than those who knew the masters will, but did not properly prepare themselves? This statement of Jesus is in opposition to everything that modern Christians believe. 

With respect to those believers who failed to put on the required Wedding Garment and come to TheCall (see TheCall To The Wedding Banquette http://TheCall.Nazirene.org ), in the parable of the Wedding Feast they are portrayed as the "invited guests".  There is of course the statement by Peter that confirms the requirement of works or actions -- i..e, "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 -- those who have committed many sins -- be better off than those who having heard, are complacent towards those teachings?

If the Christians in the parable of the Wedding Feast are representative of the invited guests, in the version in Matthew (22:1-14) they are utterly destroyed because of their complacency.   In the version found in the Gospel of Luke it states: "For I tell you, none of those men who were invited shall taste my banquet” (Luke 14:24) -- which provokes the question: How can the Christians who claim to be saved by faith apart from their actions -- making claim to a guarantee and free gift of salvation the moment they accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior -- be subject to the greater judgment because of their complacency?  Further -- and quite contrary to Church dogma -- if non-Christians were those who had not been called as invited guests -- and the non-Christians were not doomed to the destruction imposed upon the invited guests (Christians) who did not come -- the question still remains as to what is the fate of those who were cast into the "outer darkness"?  What does it mean: "For many are called, but few chosen"

 

 

In the original biblical Greek language, the knowledge of man that was taught by other men, was portrayed differently than the Divine Manna of the Kingdom that could ONLY be imparted to man directly from the Logos/Divine Mind -- i.e., this Heavenly Spiritual Knowledge was called Gnosis.   Paul taught the necessity of seeking Spiritual Knowledge which in the Greek language is Gnosis -- i.e., Ephesians 1:17 states: "and asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in your knowledge of Him"  This Knowledge that Paul teaches to seek out -- Divine Knowledge that only God can impart to sincere seekers who have prepared themselves to receive the Divine Manna -- is called Gnosis in the Greek language.  The early Christian Valentinius quoted Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians when he made reference to Gnosis Kardias -- or, the enlightened eyes of the heart.   "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints" (Eph 1:18).   And that Paul wanted very much to speak about the Mystery of the Gospel to the Ephesians, but could not, is the reason he portrayed himself as an ambassador in bonds: "And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak" (see Eph 6:19-20).   And how did a seeker/disciple obtain these enlightened eyes of the heart?   Very briefly, by fulfilling the role of a virgin who awaits the Lord with the oil of purification -- and by becoming the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed (see http://SowerAndTheSeed.Ebionite.com ), that permits the necessary expansion of the facilities of mind to be brought about, which enables the seeker/disciple to be taught by the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet.   And in the same way that in the parable of the ten virgins it was said to those who had failed to prepare themselves with the oil of purification that "Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you" -- even though they believed and had called upon the Lord and was awaiting his coming.  Which is confirmed in Peter's endorsement of Gnosis and the need for Enlightenment at 2 Peter 1:5 as seen in the Greek Interlinear at https://biblehub.com/interlinear/2_peter/1.htm . And from https://embassyofthefreemind.com/en/library/collecting-areas/christian-gnosis#:~:text=The%20original%20meaning%20of%20the,the%20true%20nature%20of%20things' . It can be seen that gnosis is divine revelation and not book knowledge.

Jesus taught his original followers and disciples the spiritual meaning of the Law that each person must fulfill within their own mind and being, in order for their minds to become Anointed (Messiah/Christ) -- Anointed with what?  The Light of the Divine Mind of God.  When Jesus spoke of the "works of the Law", he was portraying that mindset, thinking and lifestyle that is necessary for a person's mind to become Anointed with the Light of the Divine Mind which exists at the Core of their Consciousness. That the scriptures have an inner spiritual meaning that can only be seen and understood by those who have the "eyes to see", is stated in the words: "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45).  Why couldn't they understand the scriptures prior to Jesus "...opening their understanding" What Jesus stated was that only a very small select few who had begun to fulfill the precepts of the Law of God, were able to receive and understand the most important teachings and concepts known to mankind that Jesus taught.  Which provokes the most important question that few people are in any manner prepared to understand:  Why could Jesus convey the mysteries of the kingdom ONLY to a very select few, and that he was unable to convey the higher truths to the multitudes who came to hear him teach?  Because until which time they put on the necessary wedding garment and began to fulfill the Law, they will continue to dwell in the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- i.e.,  "But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man who didn't have on wedding clothing, and he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here not wearing wedding clothing?' He was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and throw him into the outer darkness; there is where the weeping and grinding of teeth will be.' For many are called, but few chosen." (Matt 22:1-14).  In the Homilies of Clement the Apostle Peter is quoted as stating the the required wedding garment that the person "...ought to beware that it be not in any part of it stained with sin, and so he be rejected as unworthy and reprobate."   Which is confirmed in the words: "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).  Jesus makes reference to the prophecy of Isaiah with respect to the necessity purity of the wedding garment and states: "‘When you hear what I say, you will not understand. When you see what I do, you will not comprehend. For the hearts of these people are hardened, and their ears cannot hear, and they have closed their eyes— so their eyes cannot see, and their ears cannot hear, and their hearts cannot understand, and they cannot turn to me and let me heal them’" (Matt 13:14-15).  It is important to recognize that the reason the people could not hear or understand,  was caused by their own deafness and inability to understand the teachings and concepts presented to them.  Even to the degree that their condition of mind inhibited them from turning about, so they could be healed.  Thus, in order to understand the meaning of the teachings of Jesus, it required them to make change in their lives -- for them to un-harden their hearts, and enable their eyes to see and their ears to hear the Higher Spiritual Truths which their organic mind could not receive and comprehend. 

Jesus taught his disciples and immediate followers the Spiritual meaning of the Natural Laws of God, and how the Law must be fulfilled in order for the prodigal son to enter into and through the "narrow gate" and gain re-entrance into the Kingdom within.  That all of mankind is immersed in the Natural Laws of Creation, is in fact why it was written into the early American Constitutional documents pertaining to what the Deists portrayed as "The Law Of Nature And Nature's God".  With respect to the question of the effect of the Law, Jesus stated: "For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven; but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven" (Matt 5:18-20).  There is a Spiritual Law that Jesus made reference to when he stated that "...Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven".  And when Jesus warned that "...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!'" (Matt 7:21-23).   Lawlessness is therefore defined and understood as a rejection of the mindset, thinking and lifestyle that is necessary to fulfill the Natural Law.  And those who observe and put the teachings of Jesus on the Law into daily effect in their lives, of them Jesus said: "...but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of heaven.   Yet, the teachings of the modern Church rejects the words of Jesus when it promotes the doctrine of salvation by Grace -- i.e., "You must believe in salvation by grace alone, and that salvation is immediate and eternal upon acceptance of Jesus as a one-time sacrifice for your sins, and not obtained through works, sacraments, traditions or merits of our own"  Therefore, Jesus taught that the Natural Laws of Creation that were put into effect, will evaluate every event -- including every word, thought, desire and deed of each individual person, that orchestrates and comprises every aspect of the life each person is living.  Why?  In the same way that to be effective, academia must monitor, evaluate and orchestrate the progress of each student, the Natural Laws of Creation were put into place to advance and evolve each person to a higher level of mental and spiritual maturity.  Why?  In the same way that you cannot teach calculus, algebra and advanced mathematics to a kindergarten student, neither can man in his organic (carnal) condition of mind comprehend the esoteric reality of the Natural Laws of God that control every aspect of the lives we are presently living.  And this is why it is stated at Jeremiah 31:33: "I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts".   If the Natural Laws are embedded in the very core of our minds, and are moved in conjunction with thoughts of our hearts, then the Natural Laws interact with every aspect of the life that we are presently living.  Yet, because the gentiles did not understand the teachings of Jesus on the Natural Laws of God, they not only rejected all esoteric knowledge of the Law, but they rejected the very words of Jesus with respect to the Law being in effect -- believing that mere belief in God exempted them from all judgment, evaluations and effects of the Law. 

Why is the knowledge of the Law portrayed as esoteric -- i.e., not physically seen and observed.  Because to observe the movement of the Natural Laws, the person had to be able to perceive what can be portrayed as the Causal-Factors of the lives mankind is living.  What is a Causal Factor?  It means that there is a Reason and Purpose for every event and aspect of the life -- and it is your own thoughts and actions that orchestrate the life you are presently living.  That every event in your life is caused by the Natural Laws of Creation -- often invoked by your own previous actions -- including the very life you are presently living.  It means that there is a higher reason and purpose to the life you are living -- and for you to fulfill the adage to Know Thyself, you must understand the Causal-Factors of life that initiates the Laws.   

Jesus taught that the Natural Law of God orchestrates every event of this world that man experiences -- i.e.,  “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).  If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground apart from the Will of God, then we have no other option than to come to terms with the biblical fact that everything in this life is directly orchestrated by the Natural Laws of God?  To the degree that Jesus taught that the Natural Law of God monitors every word and action that a person makes -- i.e., as demonstrated in the statement of Jesus: "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).  And the Natural Laws of God which monitors your every word you speak, will evaluate and render judgment in accord with what you say -- i.e., in the words of Jesus: "for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned” (Matt 12:37).  Even monitoring our every thought as expressed in the command: "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5) -- and is the substance of every word judged?  And in accord with your level of comprehension that is judged by the Natural Laws, your ability to comprehend and the depth of higher spiritual knowledge will be evaluated -- i.e., when Jesus explained who he reveal the body of esoteric knowledge to when he explained to his disciples: “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).  Why could the disciples of Jesus understand the esoteric knowledge that could not be revealed to the multitude of people who came to hear him teach?  Because his disciples had begun to fulfill the Natural Law within them as Jesus taught, which enabled them to mentally advance to the level where they possessed the ability to understand the higher more elevated teachings of the Gospel -- i.e., "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34).  

 

If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground apart from the Will of God, then we have no other option than to come to terms with the biblical fact that everything in this life is directly orchestrated by the Laws of God?  Including the inability of those people who have yet to "turn about", who can't understand both the scriptures and life with the necessary  intellectual Wholeness of Mind.   Which means that because of the Causal-Factors imposed upon mankind by what Jesus taught was the Laws of God, those of whom it is stated that "...seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand”, that their blindness and inability to comprehend was in fact pre-ordained by God.  And what is not at all understood today, was that Jesus taught his original followers how to fulfill and overcome the Natural Laws that inhibited their ability to comprehend man's higher Soul and Spiritual Realities.  When the original (Ebionite) followers of Jesus attempting to explain to many of the gentile converts about the Natural Laws and Causal-Factors that Jesus taught about, they were unable to understand these important teachings and concepts -- i.e., the human condition portrayed in the prophecy of Isaiah that "‘When you hear what I say, you will not understand. When you see what I do, you will not comprehend"

Unless the believer has begun to fulfill the Law, and their spiritual eyes and understanding is opened, they will remain unable to comprehend the higher reality of the Soul and the Kingdom of God.  When Jesus was asked why he spoke to the multitudes of people in the enigma of parables, he explained to his followers who had abandoned the ways of this world, and had begun to fulfill the Law within them as Jesus had taught them: “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).  When the early Church author Epiphanius states that the original Ebionite followers of Jesus "blaspheme most of the legislation", this was because they did not observe the Law outwardly in ritual and tradition in the manner of the Jews.  Because as Epiphanius acknowledges with respect to the original followers that "Christ has revealed"  the spiritual meaning of the Law that remains beyond the perceptive understanding of the mind of organic man.  Therefore, they understood the allegorical symbolism that was applicable to unlocking the inner door or "narrow gate" to the Kingdom.   What did Jesus say with respect to the Law? "For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven; but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven" (Matt 5:18-20).   Unlike the scribes and Pharisees who threw away the Key of Knowledge in their outward carnal interpretations of the Law, unless you embrace the Law within your whole mind and being, so as to bring about the transformation of Consciousness, then you are portrayed as being "unlawful" -- 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!'" (Matt 7:21-23).  Where the scribes and Pharisees observed the Law outwardly in ritual and tradition, Jesus opened the mind of his followers, and this opening of the mind enabled his followers to understand the spiritual meaning of the Law, and how to fulfill the Law within their own mind and being.  The Gospel of the Nazirenes preserves the original meaning where it is written: "They who believe and obey will save their souls, and they who don't obey will lose them. For I say to you, That except your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees you will not enter the kingdom of heaven."  Why?  Because the Law monitors your every impression and thought in the process of bringing about the transformation of the mind (see Spiritual Osmosis And The Narrow Gate http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Osmosis ).   When the foregoing is understood, repentance portrays those who release themselves from the shackles of carnal thinking and man-made dogmatic doctrines of belief -- i.e., beliefs that inhibit spiritual growth and development.   

These same Essene, Ebionite Nazirenes who were the core followers of Jesus, authored the original scriptures in the biblical language of Hebrew Characters (see The Original Spiritual Language Of The Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#OriginalLanguage ).  The Greek and other languages which the canonical texts are based, were portrayed as "dumbed down" copies for those who had yet to spiritually evolve to the level where they were able to discern the spiritual meaning (see http://BibleCorruption.com#error ).  Thus, St. Jerome writes with respect to the Original Gospel which was written in Hebrew Characters: "A difficult work is enjoined, since this translation has been commanded me by your Felicities, which St. Matthew himself, the Apostle and Evangelist, did not wish to be openly written. For if it had not been Secret, he would have added to the evangel that which he gave forth was his; but he made up this book sealed up in the Hebrew characters, which he put forth even in such a way that the book, written in Hebrew letters and by the hand of himself, might be possessed by the men most religious, who also, in the course of time, received it from those who preceded them. But this very book they never gave to any one to be transcribed, and its text they related some one way and some another".   Why was a body of knowledge too "Secret", and had to be "sealed up in the Hebrew characters"  which was a language understood only by the "most religious"?  That the mind of organic man cannot comprehend his own higher Soul and Spiritual Reality, is the same reason why Paul wrote that the faith-based Christians were incapable of comprehending the spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings who he portrayed as "babes in Christ" -- i.e., "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3).  And why Jesus did not speak openly to the people -- and only spoke to the people in the enigma of parables: "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it. But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34).  Yet, those original followers who had to varying degrees fulfilled the Law, Jesus was able to speak more openly, saying: “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).  When Jesus portrayed the vast majority of people as being "outside" or "without", reference was being made to those portrayed as being "In The House" who had to varying degrees begun to enter the Inner Kingdom and be in the world and not of it. 

Thus, the most important scriptures were not only never given into the hands of the Gentiles who further corrupted even the lesser (dumbed down) copies that they had received, but because of their untransformed mindset and lifestyle, they would be incapable of understanding both the true inner meaning of these Sacred Scriptures, or what Paul portrayed as the Mysteries of God that would be rejected as "foolishness" by the "natural" mind of organic man (see Animal-Soul).   But which are the more genuine?   The Original Gospels that were never given over into the hands of the Gentiles?   Or the dumbed down scriptures designed for the spiritually immature Gentiles?  Quoting Prof. Hugh Schonfield: "The Gospel according to the Hebrews is a literary outlaw with a price on its head; but in spite of the scholarly hue and cry it still evades capture. Neither monastic libraries nor Egyptian rubbish heaps have so far yielded up a single leaf of this important document....  For behind Hebrews lies the unknown potentialities of the Nazarene tradition, which may confirm or contradict some of the most cherished beliefs of Orthodox Christianity. It is useless for certain theologians to designate Hebrews as 'secondary' on the evidence of the present fragmentary remains preserved in quotation.... Judged by ancient testimony alone it is indisputable that Hebrews has the best right of any Gospel to be considered a genuine apostolic production;... Here is obviously a most valuable witness, perhaps the most valuable witness to the truth about [Yeshua]... whom even a jury composed entirely of orthodox Christians could not despise, and who ought to be brought into court. But the witness is missing, and all that we have is a few reported statements of his taken long ago... it may be argued that there has been dependence not of 'Hebrews' on the Synoptics but vice versa -- that 'Hebrews' was one of the sources on which one or more of them drew." (Hugh Schonfield; According to the Hebrews; pages 13-18).  

When Edward Gibbon writes: "But the secret and authentic history has been recorded in several copies of the Gospel according to St. Matthew, which these sectaries long preserved in the original Hebrew, as the sole evidence of their faith" -- he is speaking about the fact that the original version of Matthew was written in Biblical Hebrew Characters, rather than the Greek text that our Bibles are translated from today.   Additional information regarding the original Hebrew Gospel of Matthew is provided by Jerome in his work, O Illustrious Men, on James the Lord's brother: "Further, the Hebrew itself (or original) is preserved to this day in the library at Caesarea which was collected with such care by the martyr Pamphilus. I also had an opportunity of copying it afforded me by the Nazarenes who use the book, at Beroea, a city of Syria" Of the Hebrew original of Matthew, Gibbon writes: "the fact is attested by a chain of fathers - Papias, Irenaeus, Origen, Jerome, etc… But this Hebrew Gospel of St. Matthew is most unaccountably lost; and we may accuse the diligence or fidelity of the primitive churches, who have preferred the unauthorized version of some nameless Greek". Gibbon rightfully calls our copy of Matthew the "unauthorized version of some nameless Greek", because the only true Gospel attributed to Matthew is the original Hebrew version which was never given to the Gentile Church, and the Church does not possess today.  In like manner, there is sufficient evidence to conclude that all of the original -- more spiritual -- signatures of the gospels were also written in Hebrew.  This fact is acknowledged by Montague Rhodes James in his book, The Apocryphal New Testament, when he wrote: "Epiphanius goes on to say that he had heard of Hebrew Versions of John and Acts kept privately in the treasuries (Geniza) at Tiberias".

 

 

 

What you interpret as historical prophesies, is in reality prophesies of Consciousness. Every generation of doomsday prophets have predicted the End of the World. Yet the world goes on. The prophesies are not about the end of the world -- but rather, the prophesies are about the Kingdom coming within your own mind -- i.e., to be in the world and not of it. The prophesies are about the Anointing of your own mind when you fulfill the Law as Jesus did within himself (see Censorship Of The Truth And The Facts http://TheLawOfTheGospels.com#Censorship ) -- quoting: If, as Jesus taught, that the entrance to the Kingdom is within each us (Luke 17:20-21), and one of the primary purposes of the Gospel teachings is the body of knowledge on how to fulfill the Law and enter through the "narrow gate" within us -- thereby enabling the prodigal sons/daughters to be restored to the Edenic Kingdom -- therein fulfilling the objective to be in the world and not of it -- and this is accomplished by fulfilling the Law of God as Jesus taught, and his original followers witnessed as demonstrated in the words of Hippolytus when he stated that it was the Ebionite position that the man 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). Hence "when Ebionites [or any other person] thus fulfills 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 this is in fact the purpose and objective of the Gospel teachings -- i.e., to enable the lost prodigal sons/daughters to be restored to the Edenic Kingdom (see http://GateOfEden.com ) while still in the physical body-vessel -- and to attain the Anointing and At-Onement with the Divine Mind (see At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ). Which means that the question that confronts every person who has ever walked the face of the earth is this: How many lifetimes will it take for you to fulfill the Natural Laws of Creation within your own mind and being, and in the words of the Revelation, "Go Out No More" -- i.e., "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 see Go Out No More http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#GoOutNoMore ).

 

 

 

 

  The Original Disciples: Those followers and disciples who walked and talked with Jesus daily -- the very people who he personally taught -- those who could ask Jesus any question, and have Jesus explain his answer in fullness and depth -- all witnessed to the fact that Jesus was a true holy man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Law of God within his own mind and being.  They affirmed what Jesus personally taught them -- i.e., that he (quoting) "...was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ (Anointed) 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).   And Jesus personally taught and guided them into the path where they were in the process of fulfilling the Law, and themselves becoming the Anointed (Messiah Christ).  What does it mean to "fulfill the Law"?  Why hadn't "the rest of mankind observed the Law completely"?  If what Jesus taught his followers that "Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ", then the most important question for all the followers of Jesus is: What must they, and other people do, to fulfill the Law and become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ)?  And if what Jesus said with respect to the fact that he (Jesus) "was a man in like sense with all humanity", then there is no salvation in worshiping Jesus without doing what he taught to his closest of followers. 

When this Gospel fact is understood, it confirms the reality that the Kingdom of God is within us as Jesus taught (see Luke 17:20-21) -- at the core of our mind and being -- that each of us is the prodigal son/daughter of the Most High -- and to use the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge, the scriptures must be turned within our own Mind and Being.  The problem was that unlike the Essene Ebionite Nazirenes who were the authors of our Gospels and other scriptures, the vast majority of the Gentiles had no conception of an inner Kingdom.  The Gentiles knew nothing about the Natural Laws of Creation that develops and perfects the Soul over the course of many lifetimes -- a reality which prompted the disciples of Jesus to pose the question: "'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?'".   When his disciples asked him to clarify the cause of the man being born blind because of sin, Jesus did not at all correct them.  Why?  Because it is an historical documented fact that both the Pharisees and the Essenes understood the evolution of the Soul over the course of many lifetimes (see Biblical Foundation Mindset http://ChristianReincarnation.org#BiblicalFoundationalMindset ).  So how did Jesus answer this question pertaining to reincarnation that was presented to him?  Jesus presented them with a third reason why a person is born blind (see The Three Causes Of Human Blindness http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#ThreeCausesOfHumanBlindness ).   And without an understanding of the Law that Jesus taught his followers to prevail over, it would remain impossible for the Gentiles to understand how a Soul evolves and becomes Anointed (Messiah/Christ) and enters into a Coverture-Union with the Mind of God (Logos/Word/Son see Coverture-Marriage - Was Jesus God? http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CovertureMarriage ).  What is a Coverture-Union with the Logos/Word/Son of God?  It is that condition when a a person becomes At-One with the Mind of God (see At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ), which enables God to speak directly through the person. 

Jesus openly stated that it was not his words, but those of God who spoke through him.  When confronted by the Pharisees, and asked: "The Jews were amazed and asked, How did this man attain such learning without having studied?"   Jesus explained that:  "My teaching is not My own, Jesus replied. It comes from Him who sent Me" John 7:15-16).  And then Jesus stated:  "If anyone desires to do His will, he will know whether My teaching is from God or whether I speak on My own" (John 7:17).  What does it mean that ANYONE who does the will of God will know the source of the words that Jesus spoke?  It means that anyone who does as Jesus taught and fulfills the Law within themselves, that they will become Anointed in accord with their ability to receive the Anointing.  And having fulfilled the Law and been Anointed, that they will be able to communicate directly with God.

  The Spiritual Meaning And Fulfillment Of The Law: When most people hear about the Law or Torah of God, they envision the Law of Moses -- but the whole of the Torah is an allegorical blueprint of your own mind.  Can the Torah or Law of Moses be read literally or historically?  In the Zohar which is the teachings on Jewish Mysticism it warns: "Thus the tales related in the Torah are simply her outer garments, and woe to the man who regards that outer garb as the Torah itself, for such a man will be deprived of portion in the next world..."  Thus, to see and observe the literal/historical teachings on the Law or Torah, such an observance  "will deprive [that person] of a portion in the next world..." Why?  Because the outward observation of the Law in ritual and tradition fails to fulfill the Law within the mind of the seeker as Jesus taught his disciples.   Wherein the Zohar further explains: “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”.  Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, wrote about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”  Which explanation is in perfect agreement with the Church Father Origen who stated of the scriptures: “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics).  Further explaining in De Principiis that: “Where the word found that things done according to the history could be adapted to these mystical senses, he made use of them concealing from the multitude the deeper meaning; but where in the narrative of the development of super-sensual things, there did not follow the performance of those certain events which were already indicated by the mystical meaning, the scripture interwove in the history the account of some event that did not take place, sometimes what could not have happened; sometimes what could but did not.”   What this means is that the vast majority of Christians have no idea as to the spiritual meaning of the Law or the allegorical scriptures.  And because they make no effort to do as Jesus taught, and fulfill the Law within their own mind and being, they reject the Knowledge of the Kingdom that can only be imparted directly from the One Teacher that Jesus commanded to seek out (see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ).  And thus, they fail to understand the enigma of the allegories of the written text of the Gospels -- i.e., "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34).  And why it was stated only to a select few who understood the Law must be fulfilled within your own mind as Jesus taught: “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).

Because the modern believer reject the Law that Jesus taught must be fulfilled, is why they can't even begin to relate to or understand the witness of those who walked and talked to daily that Jesus taught them the spiritual meaning of the Law so they could become the Anointed.   It is an historical fact that the Essenes and Ebionite Nazirenes did not observe the Law in the manner of the Jews.  That the Essene Ebionite Nazirenes had been enlightened by Jesus as to the spiritual meaning of the Law, and did not observe it outwardly in ritual and tradition in the manner of the Jews, is the reason why Epiphanius wrote that they "do not accept Moses' Pentateuch in its entirety; certain sayings they reject... stating Christ has revealed this to me, and will blaspheme most of the legislation" (Panarion 30.18.7-9).   Jesus taught them the spiritual meaning of the Law that each person must fulfill within their own mind and being, in order to become Anointed (Messiah/Christ).  For them to be accused of "blaspheming most of the legislation",  means that they did not at all observe the Torah in accordance with the letter of the written word in the manner of the Jews -- but rather, they understood the allegorical symbolism that was applicable to unlocking the inner door to the Kingdom.   

Why is this important to the modern believer today?  It is in fact the destiny of all the prodigal sons and daughters to be of an Anointed Mind, and restored to the Edenic Kingdom with their Heavenly Father by achieving the necessary Wholeness and Anointing -- as personified in the words of Jesus: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).  Before this verse can be understood we must first understand what it means to be Whole.   Which provokes the question: How is Wholeness achieved?   The answer is by fulfilling the Law within one's own mind and being.  And what this means is that, contrary to the dogma of the modern Church, if Jesus is the savior who every person needs for salvation, then Jesus himself said the Church was wrong, and those who are Whole do not need him.  And as a physician, Jesus did not come for the salvation of those who are Whole, but only for those who are sick and in need of a physician.   And in total opposition to Church dogma, what this also means is that at the time the historical man Jesus walked the face of the earth, there existed people who he portrayed as "whole [and] righteous" who did not need Jesus the physician.  Jesus openly states that his mission as a spiritual physician is not for them, because they achieved the necessary Wholeness without him, by embracing and fulfilling the Law within their own mind and being.  Therefore the question must be asked:  Does everyone need Jesus as the modern Christian maintains?  While Jesus himself said that those who had achieved Wholeness did not need him as a spiritual physician -- i.e., They that are whole have no need of the physician..." -- and that with effort, all of mankind is capable of achieving a condition that Jesus portrayed as "whole [and] righteous", which means that the people who did achieve Wholeness, were not sick, and in Jesus' own words were not in need of him (Jesus) as a physician to heal them.   Which means that the whole foundation of modern Church dogma is man-made and in error. 

While the teachings of Jesus were understood and had been embraced by the Essene Ebionite Nazirenes, the Gentiles worshiped Mithra the sun-god, the Isis/Easter the moon-goddess, as well as the stars and even the emperors.  Quoting the Wikipedia "The Roman imperial cult identified emperors and some members of their families with the divinely sanctioned authority (auctoritas) of the Roman State. Its framework was based on Roman and Greek precedents, and was formulated during the early Principate of Augustus."   The Wikipedia states of Augustus that "Caesar Augustus (23 September 63 BC – 19 August AD 14), also known as Octavian, was the first Roman emperor, reigning from 27 BC until his death in AD 14.  His status as the founder of the Roman Principate (the first phase of the Roman Empire) has consolidated a legacy as one of the most effective leaders in human history".   Therefore, the Gentiles worshiped the man Jesus, because they had no understanding of how to fulfill the Laws to become Anointed in the manner that Jesus taught, and they did not understand how the Laws evolved the Soul over the course of many lives. 

  The Spiritual Holistic Lifestyle: The teachings of Jesus was founded upon a spiritual mindset and lifestyle that was the Natural Environment to bring about spiritual growth and development -- built upon Consecrated Marriages that spawned natural growth and development beyond organic human consciousness (see The Real Facts Of Life You Were Never Told About http://TheRealFactsOfLife.Ebionite.com ), in Spiritual Communities that acted as a Cocoon for Spiritual Advancement and Manifestation.   The original Ebionite Nazirenes lived a Holistic Spiritual Lifestyle in Consecrated Marriages and highly advanced Spiritual Communities that enabled them to refine their lower earthly nature -- and this refined lower physical nature permitted them to comprehend man's higher Soul and Spiritual Realities that is beyond the comprehension of organic "natural" man.  This Higher Spiritual Knowledge has been portrayed as the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God. As it is written:  "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, to him I will give of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:17)  And it is this Spiritual Holistic Lifestyle that Paul set forth when he stated: "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5).  From an Original Gospel perspective it must therefore be understood that if the congregation of believers could simply have faith, without living a Consecrated Life set apart from the thinking and lifestyle of the people of this world, then Paul would not have warned the believers of the simple faith that: “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13).  Unless you have fulfilled the requirement to "overcome", it is impossible for you to receive the "hidden manna" which is the Sacred Knowledge of the Kingdom (see Christians Blocked From Being Taught By Indwelling Logos http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ChristiansBlocked ).   Which means that ONLY those who live the necessary Wholistic Spiritual Mindset and Lifestyle are able to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the scriptures, as well as the purpose and objectives of the life that all of mankind is presently living.  Jesus did not say that the knowledge of the Kingdom belonged to everyone, as demonstrated in the words: “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand” (Mark 4:11-12).  Why did Jesus portray some people as "...seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand”?  What Jesus said was that, unless certain transformative requirements are fulfilled by a person as they evolve through the process of fulfilling the Law within their own Mind and Being as Jesus taught (see The Law Of The Gospels http://TheLawOfTheGospels.com ), they will physically see, but remain blind and unable to understand with any depth what they are seeing.  And this is verified by Paul when he stated to the Corinthians who he had himself taught what he portrayed as the (quasi-historical) "traditions" of the Gospel that, "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3).  What is being stated is that it was not a matter of teaching or instruction -- but rather, of the "frequency and vibration" of the "natural" mind of man evolving beyond man's organic (carnal) limitations, that would raise them up to a level of higher spiritual maturity.  And this is why the Church Father Origen who was portrayed as the greatest teacher second only to the Apostles stated of the physical resurrection that it was preached in the Churches… for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief” (see Contra Celsum).   Why?   Because of their untransformed carnal condition of mind and being, this allegorical portrayal of the Final Stage of Birth was all that the faith-based believers were capable of comprehending.  

More important is the fact that until the "sinners" bring about transformative change, they too will remain blind to their own higher Soul-Reality. When Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders that the “…tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you” (Matt 21:31 RSV), such a statement simply has no place within the present day understanding of Christian doctrine. Because we are without a means to explain Jesus' words, most Bible commentaries simply ignore the implications of this passage of scripture. One widely used commentary attempts to correct the text by changing the words to “instead of” -- which would then make the meaning doctrinally correct and read: “The tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God instead of you”. In this verse of scripture we are presented with one of the core reasons why the original followers of Jesus believed and lived very differently than most Christians today. The question that must be posed is: When will the chief priests and elders enter into the kingdom? Modern Christian doctrine states that because of their disbelief and rejection of Christ, they will be cut off from the face of God, and condemned to eternal judgment. And yet we cannot deny the fact that Jesus' own words convey the message that there will come a time when the Souls of the chief priests and elders will also enter the Kingdom of God -- and it will be at a time after the tax collectors and harlots who believed, repented, and followed the Christ.

The Church corrupted and suppressed the foundational teachings of the Gospel presented in the words of Matthew 5:48 when Jesus said: "You, therefore, must be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect. Quoting from 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, the Church Father 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”.  Which provokes the question: How many lives will each Soul require to fulfill the requirement of perfection (see The Pre-Nicene Position Of The Church On Reincarnation https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2022/04/the-pre-nicene-position-of-church-on.html   ).

 

  The Natural Path Vs Taking The Kingdom By Violence And Force: Jesus taught the Natural Path to bring about the subsequent stages of birth that provides entrance into the Kingdom, through the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  How does a person gain entrance into the Kingdom?  There is the Natural Process that brings about Wholeness and Completion, and there are the artificial religions of mankind.   Jesus taught his followers and disciples how to fulfill the Natural Laws that opens the mind, and connects us to our Godly Source of Consciousness.  

Modern Christians cannot explain the Gospel statement: "From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been subject to violence, and the violent lay claim to it" (Matt 11:12).  How are they violent?  And how does the violent "lay claim" to the Kingdom?  The Biblehub has no commentary or explanation (see https://biblehub.com/parallel/matthew/11-12.htm ).  It appears that Jesus is stating that there are alternative paths into the Kingdom as stated in the words: “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber" (John 10:1) .   Which provokes the question: What other way does someone climb into the Kingdom -- i.e., those who "..climb in by another way"?   Jesus taught the path of Wholeness and fulfilling the Natural Laws -- and therefore, was not making reference to those who gained entrance by achieving Wholeness, as he stated: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).  Thus, Jesus portrayed those who attempt to lay claim to the Kingdom through violence and climbing up another way who Jesus as a physician came to heal.  Those who had themselves gained entrance by achieving Natural Wholeness, Jesus portrayed as righteous -- i.e., "They that are whole have no need of the physician, ...I came not to call the righteous".  Why are they portrayed as righteous?  Because they embraced the Natural Path which Creator-God intended for all of mankind to embrace and evolve to Wholeness, Light and Completion -- thereby, fulfilling the Natural Law, in the same manner that their brother Jesus did.  As the prodigal sons/daughters, Creator-God did not abandon you in this, the Far Country -- groping blindly in the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- or, from the perspective of the philosophers, remaining a prisoner in Plato's Cave of Illusions (see http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ).   

The Gospel account of Jesus rejects and commands his followers not to be a rabbi or teacher (see "But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have One Teacher, and you are all brethren" (Matt 23:8 RSV).   Why?  Because a rabbi or teacher will attempt to convey to you what Jesus portrays as the way of thief's, robbers and the violence of those who climb up another way than the fulfillment of the Natural Laws.  

 Baptism was portrayed as the "wedding garment" that the seeker/believer had to put on, in order to come to be Anointed (Messiah/Christ, which enables the believer/follower to come to TheCall to the Wedding Feast (see Baptism - The Required Wedding Garment http://TheCall.Nazirene.org#TheWeddingGarment ).  

The Greek word Christ means the Anointing of the Mind -- and any believer who seeks a different teacher other than the Natural Anointing, has defiled the Wedding Garment.  Quoting the previous link:

True Spiritual Baptism is a Divinely Consecrated Union/Marriage with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God. And this is especially seen in the Homilies of Clement where Peter conveys to the believer that it is a sin to seek out any other teacher than the True Prophet -- as seen in the words: "But the ways in which this garment may be spotted are these: If any one withdraw from God the Father and Creator of all, receiving another teacher besides Christ, who alone is the faithful and True Prophet, and who has sent us twelve apostles to preach the word; if any one think otherwise than worthily of the substance of the Godhead, which excels all things; — these are the things which even fatally pollute the garment of baptism. But the things which pollute it in actions are these: murders, adulteries, hatreds, avarice, evil ambition..." And in the same way that the True Prophet can only be approached through the wearing of an unspotted "wedding garment" -- and the True Prophet must be sought with a pure heart and the living of a Consecrated Life in TheWay -- as stated in the Second Commandment of the Didache: "And the second commandment of the Teaching; You shall not commit murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not commit pederasty, you shall not commit fornication, you shall not steal, you shall not practice magic, you shall not practice witchcraft, you shall not murder a child by abortion nor kill that which is born. You shall not covet the things of your neighbor, you shall not swear, you shall not bear false witness, you shall not speak evil, you shall bear no grudge. You shall not be double-minded nor double-tongued, for to be double-tongued is a snare of death. Your speech shall not be false, nor empty, but fulfilled by deed. You shall not be covetous, nor rapacious, nor a hypocrite, nor evil disposed, nor haughty. You shall not take evil counsel against your neighbor. You shall not hate any man; but some you shall reprove, and concerning some you shall pray, and some you shall love more than your own life."

When Prof. John Allegro wrote that the findings of the Dead Sea Scrolls “...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” -- as demonstrated in the above, the modern Church has absolutely nothing in common with the original teachings of TheWay -- and the doctrines of the Church have so disenfranchised the community of believers, that it can be factually stated that there are no Christians today. Further, because of their spiritual adultery -- learning about Christ from counterfeit teachers, priests and prophets -- which has enslaved them in a self-imposed Diaspora.

When Jesus condemned going to the teachers of this world -- and stated to his disciples that there was only One Teacher -- this Inner Teacher was called the True Prophet (see True Prophet) by his Ebionite Nazirene Disciples.  Thus, this reality is especially demonstrated in the Recognitions of Clement, where St. Clement quotes the teachings of the Apostle Peter. In chapter 59, under the heading of The True Prophet, Clement quotes Peter and writes: “But I would not have you think, that in saying this I take away the power of judging concerning things; but I give counsel that no one walk through devious places, and rush into errors without end. 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”.

What does Peter say to us in these words? That the True Prophet “is within the mind of every one of us”. This concept is Spiritual -- and is the foundation of the Living Church that the Lord inaugurated. But unless you live the Consecrated Life as a Disciple of TheWay -- and seek the Divine Manna of the Inner Kingdom -- you cannot be taught by the True Prophet, and receive the Gnosis or Divine Manna/Knowledge of the Kingdom.  And in the same writing these rather profound words are stated that would be totally rejected by the teachers, philosophers and scholars of this world, is the warning: “Hence, O beloved Clement", proclaims Peter, “if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples”. And even more profound is the warning that it is impossible for carnal man in his organic state of mind, to perceive and understand the true meaning of the scriptures -- i.e., in the words 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". Which means that those who proclaim they know Jesus, have all been greatly deceived -- and all the knowledge that people think they have, is pseudo-knowledge from the perspective of True Gnosis/Divine Manna of the Kingdom. And since the vast majority of people reject the necessary life and mindset that enables them to be taught directly by the True Prophet, they dwell in this world under the illusion of knowledge. In order to learn from the True Prophet, you must become the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed (see Sower And The Seed ) -- transform your body and mind into the Final Temple -- and you must live and manifest the Truth that you have received in word, thought, desire and deed. And it was for this reason that Jesus said that only the very few will enter into Life ( http://GateOfEden.com ).

From the perspective of the sin that defiles the necessary wedding garment -- which sin causes the person to be cast out into the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- is the Spiritual Adultery of seeking teachers in this world -- instead of living the necessary Consecrated Life in TheWay that enables the seeker to enter into and sustain a Spiritual Marriage with the Son of God that dwells at the core essence of our being.

 

  Jesus Taught How To Become The Christ: The Original teachings of Jesus was the path for the lost prodigal sons and daughters to become the Anointed that reveals all Truths and Knowledge to the seeker.   In the parable, the prodigal son had fallen under the control of the Citizen of the Far Country.  And after great suffering, the transition point is portrayed as: "But when he came to himself" (Luke 15:17) -- which portrays the process of fulfilling the Law that opens the mind to fulfill the adage to Know Thyself -- i.e., your True-Self that is the divine offspring of Creator-God -- which is the seeking and restoral of your True-Self that is a Being of Light (see http://BeingOfLight.com ).   And this is why Jesus is quoted as stating in the Gospel of Thomas: (3) Jesus said ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty"

The Hebrew word for Anointing is Messiah -- the Greek word is Christ -- the original Gospel teachings presented the path for the seeker to become the Anointed, just as their elder brother Jesus did -- 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).  To the degree that "Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, 'I said, You are gods '?" (John 10:34).   Those who walked and talked with Jesus daily witnessed to the fact that not only did Jesus become Anointed by fulfilling the Law within his own mind and being -- but he taught his disciples how they must fulfill the Law within their own mind to become the Anointed.  That each of us must seek to become Anointed, is portrayed in the words: "My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you" (Gal 4:19).  Which means that each believer or follower of the Gospel teachings begin in a state of immaturity, and they must advance and evolve through the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening while the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) begins to Enlighten their minds and as the lost prodigal son, is restored to the Edenic Kingdom.   Sincere believers must therefore turn from the carnal outward understanding of the flesh -- i.e.,: “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” (Rom 8:6).  The religion of the Gospels was spiritual -- to the degree that believers were taught not to look to the historical man Jesus or any other teacher, but rather the indwelling Spiritual Living Messiah/Christ as their savior and revealer of truth: “Therefore from now on we recognize no man according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according o the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer” (2 Cor 5:16).   This Spiritual Anointing (Messiah/Christ), over the historical Messiah/Christ in the flesh, was what biblical scholar Rudolf Bultmann was speaking of when he concluded that the “…Christian faith is, and should be, comparatively uninterested in the historical Jesus and centered instead on the transcendent Christ” (Encyclopedia Britannica, 1998 electronic edition).

In the quotation of 1 John 2:27 it states that you don't need any other teacher if you seek to do as Jesus taught -- to fulfill the Law, and become Anointed.  The scriptures are sacred -- and when turned within your mind as the Key of Knowledge (see The Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ), the Gospels guided the seeker to become the Anointed and gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom -- i.e., "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45).  Notice that Jesus did not teach them the esoteric meaning of the scriptures -- he opened their minds to understand a reality which they already possessed within them.   Why is the prodigal son/daughter not consciousness of this inner Self and the Kingdom?  Because organic man who dwells under the control of the Citizen of the Far Country, dwell in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see TheCall To The Wedding Banquette http://TheCall.Nazirene.org ).  And it is this suppressed condition of mind that is the cause of organic man's  Spiritual Amnesia http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#SpiritualAmnesia -- causing them not to remember when they dwelt in the Edenic Kingdom with their Heavenly Father.

The Gentiles and the Orthodox Church which surrendered the validity of their teachings to the religion of the Emperor Constantine, did not utilize scriptures to reverse the condition of Spiritual Amnesia -- and neither did the Gentiles have any understanding of the Natural Laws that bring about Wholeness and Perfection in the prodigal sons/daughters of the Most High.  And in their carnal ignorance, the Gentiles attempted to interpret the scriptures as historical accounts -- instead of allegorical spiritual accounts that act as catalysts to overcome the condition of Spiritual Amnesia.   And in warning to this grave misinterpretation on the part of the Gentiles, the Apostle Peter warned that if another person teaches you the meaning of the scriptures -- or you subject your interpretation to organic human reasoning -- that you will find yourself unable to understand the spiritual meaning of the scriptures. Quoting from http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#ClementScriptures


In the Homilies of Clement the Apostle Peter is quoted as warning: "...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". If we ask the question: What is being said to the believer who desires to be faithful to the Gospel Teachings? By design, the scriptures cannot be understood by the outward-looking Linear spheres of mind. And this fact is confirmed when the Apostle Peter stated: "when the law of God (scriptures) is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind"?  Why? Because the scriptures are composed in a symbolic language that can only be interpreted and understood by the inward-looking Intuitive spheres of mind. The outward-looking Linear spheres of mind attempts to interpret all things literally and historically and outwardly in the wrong direction -- which is why Peter warns that "...For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself". Further, Peter warns that "...For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without". What this means is that if you attempt to interpret the scriptures in accord with a Biblical Commentary -- or in accord with the teachings of a Church -- or from a human thought-perspective -- that you will not only fail to understand the meaning of the scriptures, but you will alienate and disenfranchise your mind from the true spiritual meaning. Why? Because the scriptures are composed in the allegorical language of the Soul that employs allegorical catalysts that are used to develop the inward-looking Intuitive Spheres of Mind.
 

Jesus commanded his followers to reject the faux-teachers of this world, and seek out and learn only from the True Prophet within them (see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ). The Apostle Peter warns that if you seek another Teacher other than the Anointing of your own mind, that your baptism (the Wedding Garment) has been tarnished, and is no longer valid. The Apostle Peter is quoted as warning  : "But the ways in which this garment may be spotted are these: If any one withdraw from God the Father and Creator of all, receiving another teacher besides Christ (the Anointing), who alone is the faithful and True Prophet" (see The Sin Of The Defiled Wedding Garment http://TheCall.Nazirene.org#DefiledWeddingGarment ).  The only valid teachings from an Original Gospel perspective, is how to fulfill the Law and become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ).  Church doctrines and man-made dogma is a rejection of the Gospel that causes the person to "...withdraw from God the Father and Creator of all ...and rejecting Christ". There is only one restored Gospel source that conveys to the seeker how to fulfill the Law and become the Anointed -- which was written by the original author of the Gospels, and can be found at http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com .

 

 

  The Spiritual Law Of The Gospels: Did the original followers who were personally taught by Jesus know the truth when they said that Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Law?  Which provokes the question: How does a person fulfill the Law?  Today, the followers and disciples who Jesus taught are rejected as heretics.  Why?  Because man in his organic (carnal) condition of mind, has no understanding of the (Natural) Laws of God.  So, because they didn't follow the original teachings, the Gentile Church condemned and rejected the original Ebionite followers who Jesus personally taught, because they (the gentiles) did not know the difference between the allegorical Law/Torah of the Jews, and the esoteric meaning of the Law as taught by Jesus to his disciples.  While there is a foundational link of the Essenes with the Jews -- the Therapute can be rightly portrayed as the Greek version of the Essenes -- both of which came together within the Ebionites with the advent of Jesus.  The Laws of God and Creation are Universal -- affecting all of mankind equally.  From a Christian perspective, there are no exemptions from the Natural Laws of Creation (see Are There Religious Exemptions From The Royal Law   http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#ReligiousExemptions ).  When the Apostle Peter in the Epistle of Peter to James states that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error"  if this essential knowledge of the Natural Laws is lost or thrown away, it is the ignorance of the Natural Laws that has shackled mankind as prisoners in the dungeons of what is personified as Plato's Cave -- or, imposed permanent confinement in the Far Country for the prodigal sons/daughters -- and this statement of Peter in relation to man's ignorance of the Natural Laws, has been proven to be absolutely True.   Jesus taught the lost prodigal sons and/or prisoners of Plato's Cave how to overcome the Natural Laws that inhibit all mental and spiritual development beyond organic levels of organic (carnal) consciousness -- ignorance that holds them captive in this world.  But, because the gentile Christians condemned and rejected what they did not understand, they have and continue to remain hopeless prisoners of earth-consciousness that is allegorically portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country.  And remains true even today.   Even now, after proving that the Church corrupted the scriptures -- editing and even removing the most important teachings of Jesus (see The Corruption Of The Gospel Texts http://TheLawOfTheGospels.com#GospelCorruptions AND http://BibleCorruption.com ), the vast majority of modern Christians will reject the Truth and the Facts, while continuing to embrace the doctrines of pagan Rome that are the shackles that confine them as spiritual prisoners.  And because they did not understand the Law and how it is fulfilled, they redefined the man Jesus as God incarnate, and reduced the Gospel teachings to mere belief in the man Jesus -- proclaiming that Jesus nailed the Law to the cross -- thereby, permanently shackling themselves to spiritual ignorance.  And they do this, regardless of the words of Jesus when he stated: "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:17-20).  What this means is that the followers of Jesus must be more proficient at fulfilling the Law than the scribes and the Pharisees.  But how can the modern Christians more proficiently fulfill the Law, when they have no idea what Jesus taught. 

The Deists who framed the American Constitution based upon Unalienable God-Given Rights in accord with the Laws of Nature and Natures God (see Deism - The Universal Spiritual Path http://Deism.DivineStrategery.com  ), to some degree restored the knowledge of the Natural Laws that Jesus taught -- and this restoration demonstrated the validity of Edward Herbert's ("the father of English Deism") statement that “truth” can be discovered through innate human “faculties.”   What Edward Herbert stated was that under the right conditions, the person in search of Higher Truth could innately draw this knowledge of the Laws directly from an internal Source at the Core and Essence of our Consciousness -- which to some degree the Deists did.  But even this statement provokes a number of questions -- i.e., why could some of the core Deists tap into their inner Source of Consciousness?  While others seemingly cannot?  Which further provokes the question: Who were the Deists who formed the bedrock of our Constitution?  Many of the core Deists were the very same original followers of Jesus in the first century.   Which means that these same Souls were tapping into the knowledge they learned as the original followers of Jesus.  But, because the teachings on the pre-existent Soul was suppressed and removed by fourth century pagan Rome (see The Pre-Nicene Position Of The Church On Reincarnation https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2022/04/the-pre-nicene-position-of-church-on.html ), modern Christians have no understanding of the Source of Inner Consciousness from which they can tap into in the present.  Modern neo-Deists who promote Reason based upon the very limited findings of Scientism that denies the Metaphysical Source of Creation (see The Scientific Revolution http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#ScientificRevolution ), is just as intellectually lost as the Christians who remain faithful to the doctrines of pagan Rome.  

What are those conditions that must be met to begin to tap into this Inner Source of Consciousness?  When expressed in modern English, Jesus taught his followers about what can be portrayed as the Checksum (see The Checksum Of The Law http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#CheckSum ) of the Natural Laws that insures that each and every Soul evolves to Wholeness, Completion and Perfection.  Which is why Jesus also taught his original disciples: "You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect" (Matt 5:48).  Therefore, the question must be understood: Does the Law track and monitor our every thought as expressed in the command: "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5) -- and is the substance of every word judged?  As attested to in the statement of Jesus: "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).  Thus, the question: Did Jesus really mean these words that presented a reality whereby each thought and word that a person thinks or speaks, will be evaluated and appropriately responded to by Law?  In the words of Jesus: "for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned” (Matt 12:37).  Thus the question: How will this justification or condemnation of our words be measured and brought about?  While the faith-based believer who the Deists who understand the Natural Laws portray as Theists have no understanding of the Laws of God, will imagine a judgment day scenario where we are put on trial and our every word is evaluated, this is not the reality of the Natural Laws. When Paul warned the faith-based Christians: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him...;” (1 Cor 2:14), he confirmed the fact that the mind of the Christian must evolve and advance, in order to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings.   And when rightly understood, all judgment and evaluation of our words, thoughts, desires and deeds is brought about at the time of occurrence.  But to even begin to understand the Natural Laws, we must first comprehend how what can be portrayed as instant evaluation of our thoughts and words is accomplished? 

In using the image of Gandalf from The Lord Of The Rings, the meme provides us the answer in the words: Imbalanced Thoughts, Words and Actions cannot pass through the process of the spiritual checksum-attribute that is embedded in the Laws of Creation as explained at the subheading: The Spiritual Osmosis And The Narrow Gate http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Osmosis .  In modern computer terminology, the term checksum is a representative of a block of embedded code that is used to check the integrity of a data string or transmission that is necessary to evaluate the wholeness of the message.  In the case of the Laws of God and Creation, there is the equivalent of a checksum embedded in the Natural Laws that evaluates the Impressions, Thoughts, Words and Deeds of each person for Wholeness that is necessary to spawn and bring about growth and development in the mind of the person.  In the same way that junk food is not beneficial for the nourishment of the body, neither can imbalanced junk-thoughts, or erroneous beliefs and actions, bring about development or growth of the consciousness of the person.  What has been traditionally called the Law of Three -- the Law of Seven -- both of which portray separate action-intervals within the Law of Octaves, act as a type of checksum implanted into the Laws of Creation that functions as the Osmosis Testing system for what the Gospels portray as the "narrow gate" of the mind and the Consciousness of Creation.  In the same way that our cells are surrounded by a membrane that selectively allows only what the cell needs to enter, what is portrayed as the "narrow gate" can be portrayed as a mental/spiritual-membrane that only permits Whole Impressions and Thoughts that can bring about the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening about to enter therein.  The term Cell Membrane is defined as "a gatekeeper, guardian, or border guard" that protects the organism.  When rightly understood, what is portrayed as the Law of Octaves is the protective barrier of the "narrow gate" that acts as a gatekeeper that insures developmental Wholeness of the Mind of man beyond that level of what can be portrayed as Organic Consciousness.   And what this means is that embedded in the Natural Laws of God and Creation is a checksum osmosis-membrane that insures Wholeness and Balance in the development of the mind beyond organic (natural) levels of consciousness. 

Where man in his natural organic state of consciousness looks upon the Laws of God and Creation as a verbal declaration given by God for mankind to follow and adhere to, the person who has matured and evolved toward Wholeness of Mind and Consciousness, is able to comprehend how the Laws of God are Dynamic and Universally Active in the life of mankind and all of Creation.  When Jesus said: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17), what was being confirmed was that those people who embraced Wholeness of Words, Thoughts, Desires and Deeds were able to mentally and spiritually advance beyond what is portrayed as natural and organic levels of human consciousness.  It is important to be cognizant of the fact that herein, Jesus stated that a person does not need him as their savior in the manner promoted by modern Church doctrines.   That in the same way that there is a checksum osmosis-membrane ingrained in the Law of God that recognizes Wholeness, there is also a provision embedded in the Laws that enable a man and a woman who have achieved Wholeness in their Marriage-Union, to prevail over all division and duality, and achieve a condition of At-Oneness with their Heavenly Father (see At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ).  And in accord with the Laws of Creation, a man and a woman who enter into a Spiritual Marriage, have the ability to advance and evolve through the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening that is brought about by the Laws of Creator God to advance them into a natural state of Wholeness and Completion.   And if we pose the question as to how this is brought about and accomplished?  The provision to bring advancement beyond organic consciousness was embedded in the Laws as a checksum that insures proper development of the seeker as portrayed 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).  Thus, within the Laws of Creator-God there is a testing or checksum osmosis-membrane that insures success in the growth and development of the prodigal sons and daughters that insure their development and advancement that enables them to return to the Edenic Kingdom -- and this advancement of each individual is guaranteed as expressed in the words: "...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".   

With respect to the above statement: "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..." -- the thinking of man and the doctrines of the Church are carnal and earthly, and always miss the mark and inhibit the progress and advancement of mankind.  But those who understand and seek to fulfill the Law of God within their own mind and being as Jesus taught, are able to advance and mature and begin to be nourished by the Thoughts and Teachings of God that is conveyed to sincere seekers from the One Teacher which the disciples of Jesus portrayed as the True Prophet (see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ).  And thus the words: "...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".  Thus, those who make themselves the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed (see http://SowerAndTheSeed.Ebionite.com ), are able to bring about the transformational process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening portrayed in the words: "But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred. And He said to them, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear!" ( Mark 4:1-9 ).  Those faith-based believers and pseudo-Christians who lack the necessary Wholeness, are portrayed in the words: "And it happened, as he sowed, that some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds of the air came and devoured it.  Some fell on stony ground, where it did not have much earth; and immediately it sprang up because it had no depth of earth.  But when the sun was up it was scorched, and because it had no root it withered away.  And some seed fell among thorns; and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no crop".    And these complacent Christians who lack development are those who are portrayed in the words: "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!'" (Matt 7:21-23).  Who and what is the "lawlessness" portrayed by Jesus?  It is the complacent believer who adheres to the pseudo-dogma that Jesus nailed the Law to the cross -- and therefore they make no real effort to fulfill the Law of God -- wherein they fail to embrace the necessary Wholeness of Mind that evolves them to spiritual maturity and transforms them into the Living Consecrated Final Temple (see The Living Consecrated Temple http://TheConsecratedLife.com#temple ). 

These words of rejection apply to the modern faith-based Christian where it proclaims: "You hypocrites! Isaiah prophesied correctly about you: ‘These people honor Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me. They worship Me in vain; they teach as doctrine the precepts of men’” (Matt 15:7-9).  "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46).   And this is why Jesus warned those who would call themselves his followers and believers: “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it” (Matt 10:38-39). The requirement that has been set forth is that “ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy” (Lev 11:45).    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). 

Why is this reality of Law important in the life of the Christian?  If those who Jesus personally taught who said that he was a holy man who fulfilled the Law within his own mind were correct -- and he instructed his followers to fulfill the Law within their own mind and being in order to become Anointed in the manner that he taught -- then all the modern Christians who believe that Jesus was God, is in error.  Does it matter?  Yes, because the two mindsets are totally opposite.  If, as his original followers witnessed, that Jesus was a man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ), and entered into a Coverture-Union with the Mind/Word/Son of God -- and he taught them what they needed to know and do for themselves to become Anointed and enter into a Coverture-Union with the Mind of God -- then this would be the goal of every follower of Jesus.  Which would confirm the statement of Jacob, the Brother of Jesus who they call James, that "faith without actions" is dead (see James 2:26). 

 

 

 

See Also The Allegory Of Jacob's Ladder

 

  Jesus Knew Their Thoughts: Quoting from the Gospel Of The Nazirenes: "God gives you all truth, as a ladder with many steps, for the salvation and perfection of the soul, and the truth which seems today, you will abandon for the higher truth tomorrow. Press toward perfection."  Few seekers can advance, because they are unable to "abandon their truth to evolve to a higher truth tomorrow".  Modern-day scientist Nikola Tesla was correct when he stated that "If you wish to understand the universe, think of energy, frequency and vibration" -- and if you seek to journey within to your Source of Consciousness by advancing the rungs of the proverbial Jacob's Ladder, then each level of advancement is the result of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening brought about through a change in the "frequency and vibration" of the person's mind.      

The Gospels state that Jesus knew the thoughts of the people to whom he was speaking to.  It is written: "And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Why are you thinking evil in your hearts?" (Matt 9:4).  And again: "And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand" (Matt 12:25).   In understanding the thoughts of the people he was speaking to, it is written: "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34).  The key statement is in the words "as they were able to hear it" -- meaning that he knew their thoughts and spoke in accordance with the level of their development and their ability to comprehend the Higher Mysteries of the Soul and the Kingdom.   So why could Jesus only speak to the people in parables?  The parables contained embedded catalysts that have the ability to connect the mind of the person with their Inner Source as the person embraces the necessary mindset and lifestyle.  The Consciousness of a person deepens and expands in accord with the "frequency and vibration" -- which is manifest in their level upon level of their mental development and enlightenment.   In understanding their thoughts, Jesus could observe their ability to understand the Gospel teachings as a matter of the fulfillment of the Law, and comprehend man's higher Soul and spiritual reality, by each step in their level of "frequency and vibration" of mind.  

In the same way that a fetus is incapable of comprehending the realities of this world, so too is organic man incapable of comprehending his own higher Soul and Spiritual reality.   That organic man is incapable of comprehending the spiritual meaning of the scriptures and the Gospel teachings, was also confirmed by Paul who could only convey what he portrayed as the "milk" of the Gospel for "babes in Christ" -- i.e., "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3).  Thus, because these baptized and confirmed Christians had not evolved through the transformative process which is portrayed in the article in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.  What this means is that the purpose and objective of the original Gospel teachings was to bring about the higher evolved condition of mind portrayed in the words: "...Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.   And what Paul confirmed was that those Christians who remained at the "natural" level of organic consciousness without evolving through the transformative process could only be taught the doctrine of Jesus Christ and him crucified (1 Cor 2:2).  Why?  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).    Spiritual people are of a very different "frequency and vibration" of mind that deepens and enlightens with each level of advancement.

 

 

 

 

 

Again, let me affirm:  It is important to be conscious of the fact that the Christians who Paul was making reference to, were baptized and confirmed faith-based believers who were yet of an organic consciousness (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ).  What Paul attested to was that mind of organic man who has yet to evolve through the the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening, could only comprehend what Paul portrayed as the milk of the Gospels, because they were incapable of comprehending the spiritual meaning of he Gospel teachings.  Which means that belief in Jesus and him crucified from an historical perspective, was the "milk" of the Gospel -- i.e., a belief that faith-based Christians who were still of a natural organic consciousness hold and embraces, prior to evolve through the transformative process that enables them to begin to comprehend man's higher Soul and Spiritual Reality.  Which is why Paul warned: “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).  The NLT translation reads: "But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means".  What is the difference between a Christian of a "natural" mindset, and one who is "spiritual"?  Thus, it is imperative to ask the question: What is the "natural man"?   The condition of mankind that Paul is making reference to, would just as well be portrayed as "organic" -- or, of the physical body.   The "natural man" , is the "organic" human being.  Therefore, mere belief in the historical man Jesus does not in any way transform the person from the "natural man", and change his "frequency and vibration" of mind into a "spiritual man".  that is capable of being mentally nourished by the "solid food" or higher spiritual meaning of the Gospel that requires "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” -- which is not a condition of mind that is the result of faith and belief in the historical man Jesus. 

To those who think they know -- and can ascertain the truth -- from the perspective of the natural organic consciousness of man and the mindset of the faith-based Christian believer, Paul warned them that: "If anyone imagines that he knows something, he does not yet know as he ought to know" (1 Cor 8:2).  Why?  Until they have transformed the mind step by step in the process of "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” beyond organic levels of human consciousness and fulfilled the Natural Law that Jesus taught his followers and disciples how to prevail over, it will remain impossible for faith-based Christians to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospels or their own higher Soul-Reality.  And Paul fully recognized his inability to convey the spiritual meaning of the Gospel to the body of faith-based Christians to the degree that he asked the Ephesians for them to pray for him, saying: "And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak" (see Eph 6:19-20).   What is the meaning of the word "mystery"?   Thayer's Lexicon states that it is a "hidden thing, secret, mystery... confided only to the initiated and not to ordinary mortals.  A hidden or secret thing, not obvious to the understanding.  Of God: The secret counsels which govern God in dealing with the righteous, which are hidden from ungodly and wicked men... in rabinic writings, it denotes the mystic or hidden sense of an Old Testament saying...".  Which means that when you base your beliefs upon a literal understanding of the scriptures, then you have inhibited and obstructed yourself from achieving any degree of fulfilling the objectives of the Gospel purpose and teachings. 

In reading these words, a man of true insight and intellect would want to know why mankind in his organic condition -- a believer who is a baptized and a confirmed Christian -- a person who has called upon the name of Jesus as their Lord and Savior -- would reject what Paul calls the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of God as absolute utter "foolishness"???   While modern Christians believe they know, Paul warns them that they do "...not yet know as he ought to know".  Foolishness is something that the Christian believer would reject as inconceivable -- regardless of the fact that it is the Truth -- and is beyond the Christian's organic consciousness to comprehend.  In accord with the teaching of Jesus that the Kingdom is within us (Luke 17:20-21) -- which enables a sincere seeker to make the inward journey into the Kingdom -- the testimony of Paul that he was "..caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor 12:4-5) -- an intelligent man would immediately question as to why "...it is not lawful for a man to utter" what a Disciple who enters the Kingdom experiences?   The answer: It is impossible of the mind of organic (untransformed) man to comprehend his own higher Soul and Spiritual Reality.   In his Epistle to the Trallaus the first century elder Ignatius speaks of the Mysteries of the Gospel and the Kingdom, and writes: “Might I not write to you things more full of mystery?  But I fear to do so, lest I should inflict injury on you who are babes.  Pardon me in this respect, lest, as not being able to receive their weighty import, ye should be strangled by them”.  What is the difference between the organic and highly refined spiritual consciousness? 

In understanding their thoughts, Jesus knew that he could only convey the Higher Sacred Knowledge to those who had prepared themselves to receive and understand the Mysteries of the Soul and Creation.  How is a person prepared?  Where the Gospel proclaims : “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matt 3:2) -- the Churches preach Repentance because they lack the ability to understand.  The original Greek literally means to “change the mind”, which conveys a message of great depth that is not apparent in our English translations today which spiritually means to "open and unloose the mind" (see http://GateOfEden.com ).   To correctly phrase the thought that is being expressed, the true meaning is to “Open and unloose the mind, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand”.   What does it mean to "open and unloose the mind"?  The Amplified Bible states: “Repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance; seek God’s purpose for your life], for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”  What this means is that those who truly repent by "opening and unloosing the mind", have the ability to enter the Kingdom.  This is truly important for the person of faith to come to terms with -- for it is the beginning of The Way.   When we begin to put these words into their proper context with respect to the Kingdom within (Luke 17:20-21), then we can see that the Gate of Eden which in the New Testament is portrayed as the "narrow gate" (see The Narrow Gate And The Enigma Of The Law Of Octaves http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Intro ), can only be entered by unloosing the mind from the anchor of the doctrines and thinking of men -- opening the mind to the inner reality of the Kingdom -- and this can only be accomplished by living one's life in strict accord with the Commandments and Teachings to bring about a change of "frequency and vibration" of Consciousness, though the fulfillment of the Law that Jesus taught his disciples.

When Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders that the “…tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you” (Matt 21:31), he presented two crucial facts that few people who claim to be followers have considered.  First off, why did the “…tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God"?  Because they repented and changed their life -- as confirmed in the very next statement "For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes believed him; and you having seen, did not even repent afterward to believe him".  Thus, the tax collectors and harlots repented, and followed his teachings -- which means that they ceased to live in sin, and embraced the Gospel teachings.  Secondly, such a statement simply has no place within the present day understanding of Christian doctrine.   Because modern commentaries are without a means to explain these words of Jesus, most Bible commentaries simply ignore the implications of this passage of scripture.   One widely used commentary attempts to correct the text by changing the words to “instead of” -- which would then make the meaning doctrinally correct and read: “The tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God instead of you”.   Modern Christians can't understand this important teaching, because the Church suppressed, removed and even outlawed the teaching on the pre-existent Soul that evolves to Wholeness and Perfection over the course of many lifetimes.  And in this verse of scripture we are presented with one of the core reasons why the original followers of Jesus believed differently than most Christians today.   The question that must be posed is: When will the chief priests and elders enter into the kingdom?   Modern Christian doctrine states that because of their disbelief and rejection of Christ, they will be cut off from the face of God, and condemned to eternal judgment.   And yet we cannot deny the fact that Jesus' own words convey the message that there will come a time when the chief priests and elders will also enter the Kingdom of God -- and it will be in a future lifetime when physical death and rebirth frees them from the shackles of their doctrinal beliefs -- after the tax collectors and harlots who believed in their present life, repented, "opened and unloosed the mind", and were able to gain entrance into the inner Kingdom.  Meanwhile, the chief priests whose minds were anchored to the carnal by their doctrines of belief, could not bring about the necessary "frequency and vibration"  that opened the "narrow gate" within them -- which is also true of the modern Christians who have embraced and cling to the doctrines of pagan Rome.  

When Jesus said: "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46) -- Jesus could see and detect the level of Law that each person had fulfilled, by the "frequency and vibration" of their Consciousness.  Those who merely called and professed belief in Jesus, had ignored the fulfillment of the Law that he taught, and they lacked the necessary transformative change of their mind.  What did Jesus say? "For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven; but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven" (Matt 5:18-20).   The Gospel of the Nazirenes preserves the original meaning where it is written: "They who believe and obey will save their souls, and they who don't obey will lose them. For I say to you, That except your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees you will not enter the kingdom of heaven."  Why?  Because the Law monitors your every impression and thought in the process of bringing about the transformation of the mind (see Spiritual Osmosis And The Narrow Gate http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Osmosis ).   When the above is understood, repentance can also mean that one releases themselves from the shackles of carnal thinking and man-made dogmatic doctrines of belief -- i.e., beliefs that inhibit spiritual growth and development. 

Unlike the scribes and Pharisees who threw away the Key of of Knowledge in their outward carnal interpretations of the Law, unless you embrace the Law within your whole mind and being, so as to bring about the transformation of Consciousness, then you are "unlawful" -- 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!'" (Matt 7:21-23).  Where the scribes and Pharisees observed the Law outwardly in ritual and tradition, Jesus taught his followers the spiritual meaning of the Law, and how to fulfill the Law within their own mind and being.    

When questioned by his disciples as to why he spoke differently to them than he did to the multitudes, Jesus 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).  What this means is that when his original followers stated that Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Law, Jesus knew their thoughts -- and conveyed this teaching as the means which they and all of mankind was to follow in his footsteps.  Why?  Each of us is the lost prodigal son or daughter.  And without a change in "frequency and vibration" of mind, we will remain carnal in our thinking, and squander away our opportunity to be restored to the Edenic Kingdom.   Modern Christians remain carnal in their thinking -- unable to understand the spiritual meaning of the allegorical text of the Gospels -- alienated from the inner Kingdom -- because they remain focused on Repentance instead of Change through "opening and unloosening" the mind by embracing the transformative process of the Law.   In not understanding the spiritual meaning of the scriptures, modern Christians maintain that Jesus nailed the Law to the Cross -- totally ignoring the statement in the Epistle of James: "For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all" (James 2:10) AND "Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven".      

In knowing their thoughts, Jesus knew that the vast majority of people he spoke to could not understand the Law and how it worked to prepare the person to achieve greater understanding of the Soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom.  But his disciples who had set themselves apart from the multitude of people -- were no longer being taught by "blind guides" -- they began to fulfill the Law of God by living the Law in word, thought, desire and deed, in the manner that Jesus taught them -- level upon level they climbed Jacob's Ladder through the transformation of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening brought about through the changes in "frequency and vibration" which is the result of embracing the Law that Jesus taught (see http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#JacobsLadder ) -- and this enabled them to begin to comprehend what the vast majority of people could not. 

  The Law And The New Covenant: The New Covenant was declared at Jeremiah 33:33-34 -- and Jesus inaugurated the New Covenant when, as your elder brother, he was the first of the prodigal sons to complete the cycle from the Alpha of ignorance to the Omega of Enlightened Light, and be restored to the Edenic Kingdom.  What is the New Covenant?  The Old Covenant was the Law of God being declared externally -- allegorically portrayed as being written on tablets of stone.  The New Covenant is defined in the words: For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord:  I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest” (Heb 8:10-11).   Thus the enigma of human consciousness is set forth in the question: Is the mind of an infant empty?  Or does the infant possess the innate ability to tap into a pre-existing source of knowledge within the child's deeper consciousness that exceeds all of the wisdom of this world that he could be taught in the traditional manner?   When the New Covenant is set forth in the declaration that: "...No longer will a man teach his neighbor", this portrays a person who embraces the New Covenant as rejecting the need for teachers -- a rejection of the doctrines of sectarian churches, commentaries and any external source of instruction.   Which means that in practice today, those people who claim to believe in and embrace the New Covenant teachings, must reject the beliefs, as well as the outward rites and rituals of traditional religions, as they seek to open their minds and connect to the Inner Source of Knowledge which is the spiritual objective of the New Covenant.  And how is this connection to the Inner Source of Knowledge brought about?  By fulfilling the Law within one's own mind as Jesus taught -- and the Church of Rome rejected. 

If we pose the question: Isn't the purpose of the scriptures to teach us?  And convey to us what to believe?  The answer would be a resounding NO.  The purpose of the scriptures is to assist in the development of the mind -- and especially the inward-looking attributes of mind that enables the seeker to begin to tap into the inner Source of Knowledge.  And this is demonstrated in the fact that as each of the original followers began to fulfill the Law within their own mind and body, only then was Jesus able to open their minds to the spiritual meaning of the scriptures -- i.e., "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45).  Notice that Jesus did not teach his followers the esoteric meaning of the scriptures -- he taught them how to fulfill the Law -- and to the degree that each person fulfilled the Law, their minds were opened, which enabled them understand the spiritual meaning of the scriptures.  The fact that their minds needed to be opened in order to understand the true meaning of the scriptures, means that the (1) scriptures could not be read literally and understood by man's organic consciousness; (2) that there is a Source within each person that possesses a pre-existing knowledge of the spiritual meaning of the scriptures;  (3) and this Inner Source can be tapped into, by embracing the Gospel teachings in a New Covenant mode.   

What this means is that the original followers of Jesus possessed a body of esoteric knowledge that was not -- and could not -- be possessed by those who were of an Old Covenant Mindset.  Why?  Because the written word of the scriptures is the (allegorical) flesh -- i..e, "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh provides no benefit" (John 6:63) -- which equates to the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).   Which is why Jesus portrayed the Pharisees as the "offspring of the devil" (see The Devil's Spawn http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com ), because they threw away the Key of Knowledge in their interpretation of the scriptures outwardly in ritual and tradition -- 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).  What Knowledge was Jesus making reference to that needed a Key to gain access?  As demonstrated in the Interlinear Greek interpretation for Luke 11:52 (see https://biblehub.com/interlinear/luke/11-52.htm ), Jesus was making reference to Spiritual Knowledge or Gnosis, which is the secret knowledge that can only be imparted to a person who is portrayed as beint In The House, directly from the Divine Mind.  Where the Jews threw away the Key of Gnosis by their outward interpretation of rituals and traditions, the Church of Rome outlawed spiritual Knowledge/Gnosis that did not support the pagan doctrines of the Church of Constantine.  Thus, in understanding these words spoken by Jesus 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"!   Where is this door or gateway that must be entered?  And how did the religious leaders of the Jews "...prevent others from entering?"   In further clarification, the TEV version of the this verse states: “How terrible for you teachers of the Law! You have kept the key that opens the door to the house of knowledge; you yourselves will not go in, and you stop those who are trying to go in!” (Luke 11:52 TEV).  Thus, the scriptures when properly used, have the ability to "open the [inner] door to the House of Knowledge/Gnosis" -- and their outward interpretations whereby they seek the Kingdom to come outwardly (see The End Times - Armageddon/Rapture - The Coming Of The Kingdom http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#EndTimes ),  inhibits believers from "going in [the House of Knowledge]" -- and by teaching the people their outward interpretations, they inhibited the community of believers from entering the House of Knowledge.  

 

 

The allegation that those who read the scriptures as outwardly, as historical narratives, inhibits the prodigal sons and daughters from entering into the Kingdom while they are still physically alive in the body -- i.e., "...You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves" Which is why the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen portrayed the historical interpretation of the scriptures as "worthless" -- i.e., “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics).  Because each person's ability to see and understand the spiritual meaning of the scriptures and even life itself, is in accord with their transformational process of receiving the Anointing from the Spirit -- i.e., "My children, I am again suffering labor pains for you until Christ is formed in you" (Gal 4:19).  And this transformation of the physical body-vessel, brings about a change in the "frequency and vibration" of their mind (see The Eyes Only See At The Level Of Comprehension http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#TheEyesOnlySee ) that is the third cause of organic blindness that Jesus taught his disciple about (see The Three Causes Of Human Blindness http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#ThreeCausesOfHumanBlindness ).  And this body of spiritual knowledge that was beyond the vision and comprehension of those people functioning in an Old Covenant mode, was known as Gnosis in the Greek language -- i.e., the word Gnosis portrays a body of knowledge that  cannot be read in a book -- it cannot be taught in a school -- it cannot be taught by another person -- and can be best portrayed as the Sacred Knowledge or Divine Manna that can only be received directly from God -- i.e., the Logos/Mind of God (aka Son of God) that dwells at the core essence of our Mind and Being.  And this fact of the Old vs New Covenant mode is confirmed in the article on Gnosticism in the Encyclopedia Britannica where it states: “Among the majority of the followers of the movement, 'Gnosis' was understood not as meaning 'knowledge' or 'understanding', in our sense of the word, but 'revelation'. These little Gnostic sects and groups all lived in the conviction that they possessed a secret and mysterious knowledge, in no way accessible to those outside, which was not to be proved or propagated, but believed in by the initiated, and anxiously guarded as a secret. This knowledge of theirs was not based on reflection, on scientific inquiry and proof, but on revelation. It was derived directly from the times of primitive Christianity, from the Savior himself and from his disciples and friends, with whom they claimed to be connected by a secret tradition, or else from later prophets, of whom many sects boasted. It was laid down in wonderful mystic writings, which were in the possession of the various circles”.    Thus, what is defined as 'Gnosis' was understood not as meaning 'knowledge' or 'understanding', in our sense of the word", because the term Gnosis portrays the Divine Manna or Spiritual Nourishment that can only be imparted to the active seeker of the New Covenant directly by the One Teacher within the mind of that person.   And the Divine Manna (Gnosis) could not be revealed to those who Paul portrayed as "babes in Christ" -- i.e., as stated in the above quote: "But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means" (1 Cor 2:14 NLT). 

That the ability to receive the Divine Manna (Gnosis) was directly in accord with the condition of the mind of the person ("frequency and vibration"), is portrayed as the two groups -- i.e., the immature and spiritually mature Christian -- of these two groups of Christians, Smith and Wace's Dictionary of Christian Biography states: “We have no reason to think that the earliest Gnostics intended to found sects separated from the Church and called after their own names.   Their disciples were to be Christians, elevated above the rest as acquainted with deeper mysteries, and called Gnostikoi because possessed of a Gnosis superior to the simple faith of the multitude…  They also boasted to be in possession of genuine apostolical traditions, deriving their doctrines, some from St. Paul, others from St. Peter, and others again from Judas, Thomas, Philip, and Matthew.   In addition moreover, to [this] secret doctrine which they professed to have received by oral tradition, they appealed also to alleged writings of the apostles themselves or their disciples”.  When questioned by his disciples as to why he spoke differently to them than he did to the multitudes, Jesus 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).  That the Sacred Knowledge could not be given to the multitude who had not yet embraced the process of spiritual transformation in accord with the New Covenant teachings, Clement of Alexandria explained in his Stromata: “The Lord… allowed us to communicate those Divine Mysteries, and of that holy light, to those who are able to receive them. He did not certainly disclose to the many what did not belong to the many; but to the few to whom He knew that they belonged, who were capable of receiving and being molded according to them. But Secret things are entrusted to speech, not to writing as in the case with God"

The two levels of teachings motivated the philosopher Celsus to accuse the Church of being a secret system -- teaching one group differently than the common man (see The Christian Secret Doctrine http://SecretDoctrine.Nazirene.org ).  And to answer the allegations, the Church Father Origen was commissioned to reply -- which he did when he wrote:  “Now, in answer to such statements, we say that it is not the same thing to invite those who are sick in soul to be cured, and those who are in health to the knowledge and study of divine things. We, however, keeping both these things in view, at first invite all men to be healed, and exhort those who are sinners to come to the consideration of the doctrines which teach men not to sin, and those who are devoid of understanding to those which beget wisdom, and those who are children to rise in their thoughts to manhood, and those who are simply unfortunate to good fortune, or -- which is the more appropriate term to use -- to blessedness. And when those who have been turned towards virtue have made progress, and have shown that they have been purified by the word, and have led as far as they can a better life, then and not before do we invite them to participation in our mysteries. ‘For we speak wisdom among them that are perfect’”.

What we have demonstrated in this reply to Celsus by Origen is the framework of a True Spiritual Church. Contrary to the structure of the modern church, the Word is presented at varying levels in accordance with the needs of the individual. The sinner is invited to partake of the healing of the Word -- and if they repent, and have a change in heart and mind, they will have prepared themselves to move onward. After purification from the transgressions and mindset of this world and servitude to man's carnal nature, the minor mysteries can be revealed to the disciple -- which minor mysteries will then enable the disciple to begin the process of attaining the next stage of birth, and gaining entrance to the spiritual kingdom within them (see Gate Of Eden). As the disciple gains spiritual strength and vitality, and develops his innate spiritual attributes -- attributes which lie dormant in the carnal believer -- the disciple is then able to take the hand of the Lord and walk in the footsteps of the Master.  This great spiritual truth is seen in the words of Origen when he writes regarding the mysteries of God: “…others again, which to the pure in soul and body exhibit the revelation of the Mystery, which was kept in secret since the world began, but now is made manifest by the scriptures of the prophets, and by the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ”. Origen then goes on to explain that the Christ will appear to, and teach, everyone who will be His disciple and follow in His footsteps: “…which appearing is manifested to each one of those who are perfect, and which enlightens the reason in the true knowledge of things”. In these words Origen confirms the essence of Christian doctrine -- a spiritual doctrine -- that even today, the Christ is the One and Only Teacher for the genuine disciple of the New Covenant. 

  The New Covenant Mindset: What was the "secret tradition"?  It was the embodiment of the New Covenant that "...No longer will a man teach his neighbor", because Jesus taught his followers how to tap into an inner Source of Divine Knowledge that can only be taught by The One Teacher ( http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ) that exits at the Core-Essence within us.   Which provokes the question: If the Source of Knowledge at the Core of your mind and being is greater than the very limited knowledge of this world that you can be taught by other men, then why would you not seek this Inner Source?  And this is why Jesus commanded his disciples not to be called a teacher, or go to a teacher of this world.  Which is the fulfillment of 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) -- i.e., The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher .   Which means that the modern Christian Church is not at all functioning in a New Covenant environment and mode.  And this anti-New Covenant fact is confirmed by the great segmentation of the believer community into countless sects -- each publishing a great number of commentaries and Bible Study publications -- each teaching a different man-made interpretation of the Gospels -- each teaching their followers to study the doctrines of their sect.  Which means that there is nothing New Covenant about the modern Church that calls itself the followers of Jesus.  If the Church was functioning in a New Covenant mode, then the Elders in the Church would be conveying to the members how they must live in order to begin to tap into, and be taught by the One Teacher within them.    And therein lies the problem -- i.e., the vast majority of Christians are philosophical followers who are not willing to separate their thinking and lifestyle from the cultures of this world.  Belief in the historical man Jesus, without doing as he commanded by picking up your own cross and travailing in TheWay -- failing to live the necessary lifestyle of being in the world and not of it -- and thereby in their complacency, bringing greater judgment upon themselves.  Thus, Jesus warned: "And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more" (Luke 12:47-48 KJV). Thus, the modern Christian simply has no means to understand why and how the lukewarm believer will be beaten with the stripes of greater judgment, than the unbeliever. So what is the fate of those who "...did commit things worthy of stripes" -- but they shall clearly receive far less than those who knew the masters will, but did not properly prepare themselves? This is in opposition to everything that modern Christians believe. 

The Original Essene Ebionite Nazirene Community functioned in a New Covenant Mode, as seen in the statement of the Apostle Peter which is quoted in the Homilies of his disciple Clement where Peter stated with respect to the One Teacher that Peter portrayed as the True Prophet, that ...if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone".  Further explaining that the Logos/Son of God/True Prophet is "...within the mind of every one of us, but in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative; but He works in those who seek after that which is profitable to their souls, and kindles in them the light of knowledge. 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”.

Thus, when Jesus taught that the Kingdom of God will never come upon the earth because it is within you (Luke 17:20-21), Peter confirmed that the True Prophet (a.k.a. Logos/Mind/Word/Son) of God 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".  Which means that this One Teacher that Jesus taught to seek out -- i.e., the One Teacher that is the foundation of the New Covenant as the only Source of revelation and spiritual knowledge -- is within the minds of every man, woman and child -- within the minds of atheists and all of mankind regardless of their religious or philosophical beliefs.  And if a person does not acquire and develop the ability to connect to and learn from the True Prophet, that these people should  "...expect not that you shall learn anything from any other."  And what the Apostle Peter is presenting is the Core of the New Covenant -- i.e., that those who embrace the Gospel teachings will not need to be taught by other men as confirmed in the words: "...No longer will a man teach his neighbor" (Heb 8:10-11).  But to be taught by the True Prophet, the person must embrace the Gospel teachings in total purity by "...emptying his mind of all wickedness, and conceive a pure and faithful desire to know Him."  Peter confirms the reality that the the True Prophet "...knows the thoughts of every one" -- and that the prophet "deserts malevolent minds" -- which is defined as "having or exhibiting ill will; wishing harm to others" Which confirms the fact that the modern Church which is functioning in an Old Covenant mode in the manner of the Pharisees, dwells in a cocoon of spiritual confusion, because the leaders of the Church have rejected the New Covenant and the One Teacher or True Prophet within them.   And if we ask how this evaluation of our every word, thought and deed is brought about?  The answer is that there are checkpoints built into the Natural Laws that monitor every level of our mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening as explored at Spiritual Osmosis And The Narrow Gate http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Osmosis

In the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter is quoted as stating:  "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".  If we ask the question: What is being said to the believer who desires to be faithful to the Gospel Teachings?  By design, the scriptures cannot be understood by the outward-looking Linear spheres of mind -- the thinking of which has been molded by the shadow-images of this world.  And this fact is confirmed when Peter stated: "when the law of God (scriptures) is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind"?  Why?  Because the linear outward-looking spheres of mind have been taught, molded and programmed by the thinking and mindset of this world.  Therefore, is is necessary to create writings that the organic (carnal) mind of man could at least relate to, so the person would embrace them, and begin the process of mentally and spiritually advancing.  Wherein, while it was necessary to compose the scriptures with a physical facade, in order to bring about the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening, the scriptures must contain embedded intervals that disrupt the continuity of the historical narrative.  Why?  Because the countless inconsistencies, discordances and contradictions were intentionally inserted into the written text, in order to develop the inward-looking Intuitive spheres of mind that have been suppressed by the outward-looking Linear spheres of mind.  The embedded higher spiritual meaning of the scriptures can only be understood by the inward-looking Intuitive spheres of mind that remain atrophied by the over-development of the Linear outward-looking spheres of mind.  Those who understand the Natural Laws, are cognizant of the embedded intervals that disrupt the person's thinking, opening the opportunity to look inward to the Source -- where they can then be taught by the indwelling True Prophet.  Thus, these disruptions that are embedded into the narrative, are crucial bending points and interval-shocks that must be mastered in order to evolve the self beyond "natural" organic limitations of development (see http://TheLawOfOctaves.com ). 

In addition to the inconsistencies, the scriptures were intentionally composed with events that should shock the minds of the more spiritually advanced seekers.  In the words of Moses Maimonedes, who is one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, where he writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”.

Those readers of an organic (carnal) mindset, will not question the the "stories which are repugnant to both reason and common sense".   They fail to ask the question: If God is all knowing and all loving, why does he (God) inflict such violence upon mankind as portrayed in the scriptures?   The pre-Nicene Church Father Origen wrote with respect to the scriptures: “What man of sense will agree with the statement that the first, second and third days in which the evening is named and the morning, were without sun, moon and stars, and the first day without a heaven. What man is found such an idiot as to suppose that God planted trees in paradise in Eden, like a husbandman, and planted therein the tree of life, perceptible to the eyes and senses, which gave life to the eater thereof; and another tree which gave to the eater thereof a knowledge of good and evil? I believe that every man must hold these things for images, under which the hidden sense lies concealed” (Origen - Huet., Prigeniana, 167 Franck, p. 142).  Origen portrays those who see and believe only the written text of the scriptures as "idiots", because the scriptures were written in such a way that the more intelligent reader will immediately reject the folly of the written word, and seek out the Inner Spiritual meaning.   Therefore, from the perspective of the authors of the scriptures who used the myths of the nomadic and heathen tribe of animal-sacrificing Jews to weave an allegorical portrayal of essential universal truths that were concealed beneath the literal text, only an "idiot" would surrender their gift of reason and common sense, and believe in the god of the Old Testament who has been insightfully portrayed as resembling the Wizard of OZ -- i.e., a magical nut case behind the curtain who liked physical circumcision, genocide of non-Jews including killing every woman & child -- a god who made man, then repented he even made man, and killed everyone on earth but Noah and his immediate family -- a god who kills a man for trying to steady the ARK, a voodoo god who loves animal sacrifice and blood sprinkling.  

  The Mental Check-Points Embedded In The Scriptures: Organic man and woman exist in what can be portrayed as a seed-level of consciousness.  And in the same way that in the parable of the Sower and Seed ( http://SowerAndTheSeed.ebionite.com/ ), only the seed that is planted in the "good ground" can develop and grow, the Natural Laws of Creation within which every person's mind is immersed, have embedded check-points that insure proper evolutionary upward development that will not permit mental-growth beyond a certain low-level seed-mind level of consciousness development, unless the beliefs of the person is solidly structured and founded upon the Higher (Spiritual) Truth as monitored by the Natural Laws of Creation.  Just as a carpenter checks the wall he is building with a level that insures uprightness, the Natural Laws will only permit balanced and whole upward development.  To the degree that the Natural Laws that enable the Impressions or Thoughts to arise in the person's consciousness, has a checksum built into the Law that evaluates the Wholeness of the Impression or Thought from the perspective of bringing about the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-development of the person whose mind carried the Impression of Thought.  A checksum is defined as: "a small-sized block of data derived from another block of digital data for the purpose of detecting errors that may have been introduced during its transmission".  Consciousness requires bio-energy that fuels and permits the Impression or Thought to arise through the mind of the person.  If the thinking of the person equates to junk or carnal earthly thinking, the checksum built into the Natural Laws funnels or diverts the Impressions or Thoughts into the outer world where the bio-energy feeds Nature (see Spiritual Osmosis And The Narrow Gate http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Osmosis ).   Only those Impressions and Thoughts whose balance and wholeness pass through the checksum embedded into the Natural Laws, are able to stimulate and bring about the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.   In the same way that it is demonstrated in the foregoing that the original disciples and followers who walked and talked with Jesus every day could not have been wrong in their beliefs about both Jesus and their own eventual Destiny, because the man Jesus had arisen to the level where he had the ability to know the thoughts of those who he taught -- and the same Check-Points that are embedded in the text of the scriptures also function in the consciousness of mankind -- and these Check-Points that are built into the Natural Laws, will not permit growth and development of mind if the person holds erroneous beliefs.   What this means is that both the Atheists and the people who cling to man-made dogmatic beliefs, cannot mentally grow and evolve beyond a low-level of development.  And this would also include people who fail to live a lifestyle that is not conductive to higher growth and development, as well as all the intellectuals who learn from the teachers of this world.    

In the Clementine Homilies, the personage of Simon Magus is used to portray someone who is able to deceive the people of an organic (carnal) consciousness into following them and their doctrines of belief.  And of the people who have been easily deceived by the countless Simon Magus' of this world, the Apostle Peter states: “And with us, indeed, who have had handed down from our forefathers the worship of the God who made all things, and also the mystery of the books which are able to deceive, he will not prevail; but with those from amongst the Gentiles who have the polytheistic fancy bred in them, and who know not the falsehoods of the Scriptures, he will prevail much. And not only he; but if any other shall recount to those from among the Gentiles any vain, dreamlike, richly set out story against God, he will be believed, because from their childhood their minds are accustomed to take in things spoken against God. And few there shall be of them, as a few out of a multitude, who through ingenuousness shall not be willing so much as to hear an evil word against the God who made all things.   And to these alone from amongst the Gentiles it shall be vouchsafed to be saved. Let not any one of you, therefore, altogether complain of Simon, or of any one else; for nothing happens unjustly, since even the falsehoods of Scripture are with good reason presented for a test.”   This fact with respect to the falsehoods of the scriptures was confirmed by Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, where he writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”.  As well as the Church Father Origen in De Principiis where he writes that: “Where the word found that things done according to the history could be adapted to these mystical senses, he made use of them concealing from the multitude the deeper meaning; but where in the narrative of the development of super-sensual things, there did not follow the performance of those certain events which were already indicated by the mystical meaning, the scripture interwove in the history the account of some event that did not take place, sometimes what could not have happened; sometimes what could but did not.” 

What this quotation of Peter confirms is the portrayal that the scriptures contain faux-historical accounts that are not only untrue, but also accounts that are bluntly false and  "repugnant to both reason and common sense" .  Why?  In order to develop the higher attributes of mind, man must be able to make choices and exercise his freewill.  Thus, the scriptures are intentionally composed with Intervals that act as checkpoints to test the readers level of higher awareness.  When one of the countless intervals are encountered in the text of the scriptures, the Linear outward-looking spheres of mind must recognize the divergent path, and consciously choose to explore the possibilities presented -- which requires the outward-looking linear attributes of mind to release control over the person's thinking, and permit the inward-looking intuitive spheres of mind to explore and receive guidance -- initiating the process of tapping into the True Prophet.   The scriptures are not historical accounts -- they are composed in the symbolic language of the Soul (see The Original Spiritual Language Of The Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#OriginalLanguage ) that can only be interpreted and understood by the inward-looking Intuitive spheres of mind.  The outward-looking Linear spheres of mind attempts to interpret all things literally and historically -- which is why Peter warns that "...For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself".   Further, Peter warns that "...For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".  What this means is that if you attempt to interpret the scriptures in accord with a Biblical Commentary -- or in accord with the teachings of a Church -- or from a human organic level thought-perspective -- that you will not only fail to understand the meaning of the scriptures, but you will alienate and disenfranchise your mind from the true spiritual meaning.  Why?  Because the scriptures are composed in the allegorical language of the Soul that employs allegorical catalysts that are used to develop the inward-looking Intuitive Spheres of Mind (see The Purpose Of The Scriptures http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com#PurposeOfTheScriptures ).

Those who call themselves the followers of Jesus, and have learned from a teacher, a clergy, a prophet or adopted the beliefs or doctrines of a Church, have rejected the Gospel teachings.  Quoting the Apostle Peter in the Homilies of Clement:  "But the ways in which this [wedding] garment may be spotted are these: If any one withdraw from God the Father and Creator of all, receiving another teacher besides Christ, who alone is the faithful and True Prophet" (see The Sin Of The Defiled Wedding Garment http://TheCall.Nazirene.org#DefiledWeddingGarment ).  In the above the Apostle Peter not only portrays the scriptures as  "the mystery of the books which are able to deceive" , but also that "the falsehoods of Scripture are with good reason presented for a test.”   What this means is that if you believe the falsehoods that have been intentionally embedded in the text of the scriptures -- falsehoods that were inserted into the text of the scriptures to test the reader -- if you believe and embrace the literal meaning, then you have yet to reach the level of mental development where you are able to achieve greater advancement.   It means that you still blindly believe, and you are not prepared to think with any depth of comprehension.  

What the foregoing means, is that there are check-points embedded in the Gospels that (1) evaluate your level of development and test if you have advanced to the point where you can progress to the next step of development; And (2) by testing your level of development, the scriptures are (3) embedded with allegorical catalysts that can only be interpreted intuitively, and (4) only by those who seek the guidance of the Inner Teacher that exists at the Core of their Mind and Consciousness.  Therefore, the embedded check-points will not permit you to believe what is false, what is convenient or what you choose to believe.  That these built in check-points determine the balance of your mental position at each interval of testing that is built into the Natural Laws, and will only permit you to advance when your thinking has achieved a degree of Wholeness (see Spiritual Osmosis And The Narrow Gate http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Osmosis ).  Why?  Because the consciousness of organic man is at a seed-level as portrayed in the parable of The Sower And The Seed ( http://SowerAndTheSeed.Ebionite.com ).  And because the development of the mind beyond seed-levels of organic consciousness, can only be accomplished through evolutionary upward growth as higher levels of Truth is comprehended.  

 

The Spiritual Death Of The Bible Student and The Shackles Of Bad Beliefs About God

 

If you study the Bible and interpret it from a human perspective, you will make yourself the walking dead -- i.e., "Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead” (Matt 8:21-22).  Why?  The Mental Check-Points Embedded In The Scriptures http://TheLawOfTheGospels.com#MentalCheckPoints

Organic man and woman exist in what can be portrayed as a seed-level of consciousness. And in the same way that in the parable of the Sower and Seed ( http://SowerAndTheSeed.ebionite.com/ ) , only the seed that is planted in the "good ground" can develop and grow, the Natural Laws of Creation within which every person's mind is immersed, have embedded check-points that insure proper evolutionary upward development that will not permit mental-growth beyond a certain low-level seed-mind level of consciousness development, unless the beliefs of the person is solidly structured and founded upon the Higher (Spiritual) Truth as monitored by the Natural Laws of Creation. Just as a carpenter checks the wall he is building with a level that insures uprightness, the Natural Laws will only permit balanced and whole upward development. To the degree that the Natural Laws that enable the Impressions or Thoughts to arise in the person's consciousness, has a checksum built into the Law that evaluates the Wholeness of the Impression or Thought from the perspective of bringing about the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-development of the person whose mind carried the Impression of Thought. A checksum is defined as: "a small-sized block of data derived from another block of digital data for the purpose of detecting errors that may have been introduced during its transmission" (see The Checksum Of The Law http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#CheckSum ). Consciousness requires bio-energy that fuels and permits the Impression or Thought to arise through the mind of the person. If the thinking of the person equates to junk or carnal earthly beliefs or thinking, the checksum built into the Natural Laws funnels or diverts the Impressions or Thoughts into the outer world where the bio-energy feeds Nature (see Spiritual Osmosis And The Narrow Gate http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Osmosis  ). Only those Impressions and Thoughts whose balance and wholeness pass through the checksum embedded into the Natural Laws, are able to stimulate and bring about the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening. In the same way that it is demonstrated that the original Ebionite disciples and followers who walked and talked with Jesus every day could not have been wrong in their beliefs about both Jesus and their own eventual Destiny, because the man Jesus had arisen to the level where he had the ability to know the thoughts of those who he taught -- and the same Check-Points that are embedded in the text of the scriptures also function in the consciousness of mankind -- and these Check-Points that are built into the Natural Laws, will not permit growth and development of mind if the person holds erroneous beliefs. What this means is that both the Atheists and the people who cling to man-made dogmatic beliefs, cannot mentally grow and evolve beyond a low-level of development. And this would also include people who fail to live a lifestyle that is not conductive to higher growth and development, as well as all the intellectuals who learn from the teachers of this world.

In the Clementine Homilies, the personage of Simon Magus is used to portray someone who is able to deceive the people of an organic (carnal) consciousness into following them and their doctrines of belief. And of the people who have been easily deceived by the countless Simon Magus' of this world, the Apostle Peter is quoted as stating: “And with us, indeed, who have had handed down from our forefathers the worship of the God who made all things, and also the mystery of the books which are able to deceive, he will not prevail; but with those from amongst the Gentiles who have the polytheistic fancy bred in them, and who know not the falsehoods of the Scriptures, he will prevail much. And not only he; but if any other shall recount to those from among the Gentiles any vain, dreamlike, richly set out story against God, he will be believed, because from their childhood their minds are accustomed to take in things spoken against God. And few there shall be of them, as a few out of a multitude, who through ingenuousness shall not be willing so much as to hear an evil word against the God who made all things. And to these alone from amongst the Gentiles it shall be vouchsafed to be saved. Let not any one of you, therefore, altogether complain of Simon, or of any one else; for nothing happens unjustly, since even the falsehoods of Scripture are with good reason presented for a test.” This fact with respect to the falsehoods of the scriptures was confirmed by Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, where he writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”. As well as the Church Father Origen in De Principiis where he writes that: “Where the word found that things done according to the history could be adapted to these mystical senses, he made use of them concealing from the multitude the deeper meaning; but where in the narrative of the development of super-sensual things, there did not follow the performance of those certain events which were already indicated by the mystical meaning, the scripture interwove in the history the account of some event that did not take place, sometimes what could not have happened; sometimes what could but did not.” 

What this quotation of Peter confirms is the portrayal that the scriptures contain faux-historical accounts that have been intentionally inserted into the narrative that are not only untrue, but also accounts that are bluntly false and  "repugnant to both reason and common sense". Why? In order to develop the higher attributes of mind, man must be able to make choices and exercise his freewill. Thus, the scriptures are intentionally composed with Intervals that act as checkpoints to test the readers level of higher awareness. When one of the countless intervals are encountered in the text of the scriptures, the Linear outward-looking spheres of mind must recognize the divergent path, and consciously choose to explore the possibilities presented -- which requires the outward-looking linear attributes of mind to release control over the person's thinking, and permit the inward-looking intuitive spheres of mind to explore and receive guidance -- initiating the process of tapping into the True Prophet. The scriptures are not historical accounts -- they are composed in the symbolic language of the Soul (see The Original Spiritual Language Of The Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#OriginalLanguage  ) that can only be interpreted and understood by the inward-looking Intuitive spheres of mind.

In the Homilies of Clement the Apostle Peter is quoted as stating: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without". If we ask the question: What is being said to the believer who desires to be faithful to the Gospel Teachings? By design, the scriptures cannot be understood by the outward-looking Linear spheres of mind. And this fact is confirmed when the Apostle Peter stated: "when the law of God (scriptures) is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind"? Why? Because the scriptures are composed in a symbolic language that can only be interpreted and understood by the inward-looking Intuitive spheres of mind. The outward-looking Linear spheres of mind attempts to interpret all things literally and historically and outwardly in the wrong direction -- which is why Peter warns that "...For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself". Further, Peter warns that "...For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without". What this means is that if you attempt to interpret the scriptures in accord with a Biblical Commentary -- or in accord with the teachings of a Church -- or from a human thought-perspective -- that you will not only fail to understand the meaning of the scriptures, but you will alienate and disenfranchise your mind from the true spiritual meaning. Why? Because the scriptures are composed in the allegorical language of the Soul that employs allegorical catalysts that are used to develop the inward-looking Intuitive Spheres of Mind.

The mind has to be developed to receive the Impressions from the Inner Source. This development of mind is monitored by the Natural Laws -- i.e., only Whole and Balanced Impressions and Thoughts can bring about the process of mental-development and spiritual-deepening. If you hold what Peter portrays as "bad beliefs about God", then no growth and development can take place. And such a person is most often hearing the whispering of discarnate spirits.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

  The Blueprint Of Your Own Mind: The authors of the scriptures were advanced seekers who each had achieved a spiritually mature mind -- as portrayed in the statement of Jesus: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).  Each of the authors of the scriptures had achieved various degrees of Wholeness -- each of whom had been taught by The One Teacher that Jesus commanded his followers to seek out exclusively -- i.e., The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher .  And having been taught by the One Teacher to the level that the seeker could, the authors of the scriptures did not write historical narratives for others to blindly believe and grope in the darkness of this shadow-world.  Why?  Belief in historical events cannot, and does not, achieve Wholeness.  And this is why the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen portrayed the historical interpretation of the scriptures as worthless -- i.e., “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics).  Memorization of quasi-historical events cannot achieve Wholeness of Mind.  And it never dawns on the critics that the authors intentionally inserted what appears to be the countless discordances into the body of the text for an important purpose -- one of which is to inhibit them to be read literally or historically.  And it is in fact these discordances, inconsistencies and seemingly errors that are important in suppressing the domination of the Linear (male) interpretation of the scriptures.  

Those who understood the purpose and objective of the scriptures, and utilized them as the Key of Knowledge (see The Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ) to develop the inward Intuitive spheres of mind, recognized that the inconsistencies which were intentionally inserted into the text, were employed as catalysts that could only be interpreted in accord with the ability of the person to draw from within to the Inner Source of Knowledge.  And if we pose the question: Why are the scriptures composed in their present allegorical manner?  Because to be effective, they must stimulate the thinking of the people not only in a linear manner, but also by employing catalysts that bring about the process of reverse-stimulation.   And this is why Origenfurther explained in De Principiis that: “Where the word found that things done according to the history could be adapted to these mystical senses, he made use of them concealing from the multitude the deeper meaning; but where in the narrative of the development of super-sensual things, there did not follow the performance of those certain events which were already indicated by the mystical meaning, the scripture interwove in the history the account of some event that did not take place, sometimes what could not have happened; sometimes what could but did not.”  

The quasi-historical facade of the Gospels is necessary to make them relatable and relevant for immature believers.  But the quasi-historical is used for the same reason that Jesus taught the multitude of people in parables.   The allegorical text that possessed a deeper meaning of mind and spirit was necessary so that elementary believers could relate to the written text of the scriptures.  But as the person progresses, it is imperative to understand the Law that the original followers of Jesus attested to the fact that he fulfilled in order to become Anointed (Enlightened) -- and taught them to do the same -- and they used the scriptures as a blueprint of mind which employed allegorical catalysts in their quest to make the inner journey into the Kingdom (Luke 17:20-21). 

What is being allegorically personified in the Gospels?  When you open the scriptures, every number, name, place and city has a mental and spiritual meaning attached to it that portrays a reality of your own mind.  Jerusalem is not a geographical city -- but rather, the name Jerusalem in the scriptures is an allegorical symbol that portrays a condition of mind and being.  Therefore, it can be stated that there is a Jerusalem of this world that is meaningless to the seeker, and a Spiritual Jerusalem the immature believers have do not have any understanding of what is being signified.  The portrayal of the twelve disciples, allegorically represent the twelve spheres of your own mind as patterned in the Tree of Life (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ) -- a reality of Mind that if you fulfill the Law and are able to eat the fruit "...from the tree of life and eat, and live forever" (Gen 3:22-23) -- of which it is said: "To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).  The cities through which Jesus and the disciples are portrayed as having traveled through, are the Seven Spiritual Centers which are the source of bio-energy that enters your body from your Source of Being in your Higher Soul-Self (see http://SoulSelf.org ). Those portrayed as Jews who crucify the Christ, are representative of those aspects of mind that interpret the scriptures or Law of God outwardly in ritual and tradition -- just as the vast majority of Christians do today. Using an historical facade, the Gospels aren't about a man named Jesus -- but rather, all that is allegorically personified in the meaning of the name Yeshua/Joshua/Jesus. In one respect, the name Yeshua represents a vibration and frequency of mind that each person must achieve to bring about the next stage of birth. And in the allegorical Books of Moses, this is why the name Moses which is representative of The Law, could NOT bring the twelve tribes of Israel across the Jordan -- which could only be accomplished by achieving the vibratory frequency portrayed in the name Yeshua/Joshua/Jesus i.e., "And the LORD commissioned Joshua...  Be strong and courageous, for you shall bring the people of Israel into the land that I swore to give them. I will be with you (Deut 31:23).   What this means is that only when you achieve the vibratory frequency and reality of mind that is represented in the name Joshua/Yeshua/Jesus, can you be nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life, and gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom -- "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" (Rev 22:14).  So, by "washing and purifying our physical self and detaching ourselves from the thinking and lifestyle of this world", we begin to be nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life.   "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:8-17), this "hidden manna" is the the Sacred Knowledge or the Divine Manna that can only be imparted to the seeker directly from the Indwelling Logos and True Prophet -- "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:8-17), this "hidden manna" is the the Sacred Knowledge or the Divine Manna that can only be imparted to the seeker directly from the Indwelling Logos and True Prophet (see  The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ) -- who is the ONLY TEACHER that Jesus commanded to seek out and learn from. 

While the Law (Moses) is necessary to bring you to the Gate of the City, the Law could not bring the Children of Israel across the Jordan -- which could only be accomplished by achieving that reality of Mind portrayed in the name Yeshua/Joshua/Jesus.    But what is the meaning of the Jordan -- i.e., Crossing over, or the baptism in the Jordan, is representative of the "passing from the natural to the supernatural". And this can only be accomplished when Wholeness, Completeness and a degree of Perfection is achieved -- i.e., "Therefore, you must be Perfect, as your Heavenly Father is Perfect" (Matt 5:48).  And this perfection is the embodiment and meaning of the name Yeshua/Joshua/Jesus -- and only when you as a seeker personify what the reality of the name Yeshua within your own mind and being, can the next stage of birth be achieved.  Which means that the Gospels are not so much about an historical man Jesus -- but rather, it is about you and YOUR twelve sphere of mind which is allegorically portrayed as disciples, the flow of bio-energy from the seven cities within you -- and the fulfilling of the requirement in the words: They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?" 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... then will you enter the kingdom".  That this ultra-important verse which was removed from the Gospels, has been restored in an Epistle from the first century, is easily proven at http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Clement .  That each person not only can, but has the eventual destiny to become all that is personified in the name Yeshua/Joshua/Jesus, is confirmed in what is known as the (Secret) Book of James (The Apocryphon of James at http://gnosis.org/naghamm/jam-meyer.html ) where it is written with respect to the composition of the original Gospels that were composed in Hebrew Characters (see The Original Spiritual Language Of The Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#OriginalLanguage ): "You have asked me to send you a secret book revealed to Peter and me by the master, and I could not turn you down, nor could I speak to you, so I have written it in Hebrew and have sent it to you, and to you alone. But since you are a minister of the salvation of the saints, try to be careful not to reveal to many people this book that the savior did not want to reveal even to all of us, his twelve students. Nonetheless, those who will be saved through the faith of this treatise will be blessed. Ten months ago I sent you another secret book that the savior revealed to me."  In the Gospel it is stated of organic man's inability to understand the spiritual meaning of the scriptures and the higher reality of their own Soul: “First I spoke with you in parables, and you did not understand. Now I am speaking with you openly, and you do not grasp it. Nevertheless, you were for me a parable among parables and a disclosure among things revealed. Be eager to be saved without being urged. Rather, be fervent on your own and, if possible, outdo even me, for this is how the father will love you"  That each person can only see and comprehend in accord with the vibratory frequency of their own mind, is explored at The Eyes Only See At The Level Of Comprehension http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#TheEyesOnlySee

What is being stated by Jesus is that each person must: "Be eager to be saved without being urged. Rather, be fervent on your own and, if possible, outdo even me, for this is how the father will love you" This means that anyone who is eager and fervent on their own, can "outdo" the man Jesus of his brother.  Which confirms the statement with respect to the prediction that the followers of Jesus will be able to perform the same miracles that the Gospels state that Jesus performed: "Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I am doing. He will do even greater things than these" (John 14:12).  This ability that the followers of Jesus would be able to do and know all that Jesus did, was in the Book of Acts prior to it being severely corrupted and rewritten by the fourth century Church.  With regard to the condition of the Bible we presently use: The surviving Greek texts of the book of Acts are so radically different from each other, that it has been suggested that perhaps there were multiple versions written. In his book The Text of the New Testament, Dr. Vincent Taylor writes that "The manuscripts of the New Testament preserve traces of two kinds of dogmatic alterations: those which involve the elimination or alteration of what was regarded as doctrinally unacceptable or inconvenient, and those which introduce into the Scriptures proof for a favorite theological tenet or practice".  Regarding this serious problem presented by the example of Codex Bezae, Dr. Vincent Taylor writes that: "It is characterized by a series of remarkable omissions in Luke, especially in chapters XXII and XXIV, and by many striking additions and variations in the Acts" (The Text of the New Testament, Dr. Vincent Taylor). How would these "remarkable omissions" and "striking additions and variations" effect the dogmatic beliefs of the modern Christian?  The corruption of the Gospels was so egregious, that the Ebionite Nazirenes and the Spiritual Christians who rejected the religion of the emperor came together and buried seven (7) libraries of scriptures which is documented at Can I Get An Original Pure Copy Of The Scriptures http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#PureCopyOfScriptures .  And if the true purpose of the Gospels is to become all that is personified in the account of Jesus, then modern Christians have been duped into throwing the teachings of Jesus away.   

  The Ultra-Important Verse Removed From The Gospels: What does it mean when Jesus stated that you must "turn about", and become as a little child in order to "enter the Kingdom"?  A person fulfills becoming a "little one" through the process of achieving the three subsequent stages of birth -- as noted when Nicodemus in fact questioned the process when he asked Jesus: “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” (John 3:4).  While Jesus taught the need to bring about the subsequent stages of birth -- stating, "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22), like Nicodemus, few people who claim to believe in his teachings, understand the nature of the tribulations.  To the degree that the tribulations associated with the birth process is often portrayed as Armageddon -- which is defined as: "the site or time of a final and conclusive battle between the forces of good and evil"Not to lessen the fact that in every instance where the proverbial events of what has come to be known as Armageddon has been portrayed in scripture as something to be feared, there is another element to the theological equation that is rarely ever mentioned or discussed.  What if what is portrayed as Armageddon is in reality the person overcoming their own duality in the process of birth?  This can be demonstrated by simply examining how we translate Matthew 24:8, where the King James Bible states that Armageddon is the "…beginning of sorrows"; the New Living Translation states it is "…the beginning of the horrors to come"; with the correct and little used interpretation by those who stand on our street corners proclaiming that we should repent being found in the Revised Standard Version where it reads that "…all this is but the beginning of the birth-pangs". 

 

Do you understand this requirement set forth?  In the Gospels the disciples portray themselves as children -- i.e., "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"  In the Gospels, Jesus places particular attention and importance on Children who are often referred to as the "little ones".   Jesus taught his followers that they can only receive the Kingdom as a child -- i.e., "Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it” (Mark 10:15).  Believers are warned that if they fail to "turn about", and become as a child, they cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven (Mt 18:3; 19:14).   But this provokes the question: What does it mean to "turn about", and become as a child?  Modern Christians have been denied the answer to this ultra-important question, because the Church removed a teaching on becoming a "little one".  (see The Removed Verses On The Children http://BrotherOfYeshua.com/children.htm#TheRemovedVerses ). 

If we pose the question: How did you begin your journey into this life?  There is a threefold answer that because of the removal of this teaching, few modern Christians are even prepared to "enter the Kingdom".  Why?  Because, like many other important spiritual concepts on entering the Kingdom, the teaching was so against the man-made dogma of the Church of Rome, that it had to be totally removed from the canonical Gospels?  The answer is what you, as a follower of the Gospel teachings, must become to receive the Kingdom.  After Jesus stated at Mark 9:37: "Whosoever shall receive one of such little children in my name, receiveth me; and whosoever receiveth me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me", the original (uncorrupted) Gospels presented an explanation with respect to what it meant to "turn about" and become a "little one".  But what Jesus said so offended the Roman Emperors who ruled over the Church, that the words of Jesus was removed.  Instead of responding within the context of the message, the removal and insertion of verses makes the text appear to be a channel change on a radio or television: Picture Jesus standing with a child in his arms, teaching His disciples about the "little ones"; and John, totally ignoring what Jesus was saying, changes the subject, and instead replies: "Teacher, we saw one casting out demons in thy name; and we forbade him, because he followed not us. But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man who shall do a mighty work in my name, and be able quickly to speak evil of me. For he that is not against us is for us". Then, as if the channel gets switched back to the original station, the message reverts back to the first script and reads: "And, whosoever shall cause one of these little ones that believe on me to stumble, it were better for him if a great millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea"

While the reply of Jesus was a simple message, the teaching supported the original foundational paradigm of the Gospel teachings which totally undermined the corrupted doctrines of the fourth century Church of Rome.  And this suppressed teaching that was removed from the Gospels read: "For there are some children, which were so born from their mother's womb; And there are some who God returned, and were made the children of men; And there be children, who have made themselves children for the kingdom of heaven's sake."  Which means that when you fulfill the requirements set forth in the words, "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", you will have prevailed over your inherent duality at that level, and become a Child at the next stage of birth -- i.e., "For there are some children, which were so born from their mother's womb; And there are some who God returned, and were made the children of men; And there be children, who have made themselves children for the kingdom of heaven's sake" (see also The Missing Verse Removed From The Gospels http://BrotherOfYeshua.com/children.htm#TheMissingVerse ).

What is signified?  Since all of mankind is born from and out of the womb of woman, what is signified in the verse that was removed by the Church?  Those who are portrayed as having been born children from their mother's womb -- i.e., "For there are some children, which were so born from their mother's womb" --  have entered this life without debts that the Laws placed upon them.  When Jesus was asked about the man born blind, there was three causes presented (see The Three Causes Of Human Blindness http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#ThreeCausesOfHumanBlindness ).  The first was blindness due to the sin of the man in a previous life.  The second was caused by the sin of the parents who failed to properly develop him to fulfill the Laws of God.  And the third was organic blindness which is true of all people who are born in what Jesus taught was the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see The Cause Of Organic Human Blindness http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#OrganicHumanBlindness ).  The Gospels, as with all scriptures, are not historical -- but rather, they are allegorical events of the mind of the seeker.  What is therefore portrayed as the Virgin Birth, is the non-physical subsequent stages of birth that each person must bring about, in order to be born a child (or little one) of the Kingdom.   Therefore, those who are portrayed as being  "born from their mother's womb", have been born of woman instead of a non-physical virgin birth from the Holy Spirit.  Which means that their thinking and mindset is of the earth.   Their condition of birth is in accord with their past levels of achievement which in the parable of the talents, is in accord with the talents received (see Spiritual DNA And The Allotment Of Talents http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SpiritualDNA ).  What this signifies is that in the parable, those who receive one talent, have not advanced, and remain carnal in their mindset and thinking; while those who have received two talents, have developed somewhat over the course of their Soul's previous lives; and those who have received what is personified as five talents, have greatly evolved and developed over their Soul's previous lives.  Thus, the statement: "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7) -- or, as explained 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).   Why did the Church Father Origen openly write about the pre-existent Soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lives?  Because as the greatest pre-Nicene Bible Scholar, Origen had access to the Gospels prior to their being corrupted (see Can I Get An Original Pure Copy Of The Scriptures http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#PureCopyOfScriptures ).  Of course, Origen examined the Gospels prior to these versed being removed (see The Removable Of The Mystery Of The Children at  http://ebionite.com/BibleCorruption.htm#children ).  In the case of the verse that was removed on the "little one's", even the Commentary of Origen was corrupted where the teaching on the children was noted (see The Corruption Of Commentary Of Origen http://BibleCorruption.com#CorruptionOfOrigen ).  All the teachings on the pre-existent Soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lives was either corrupted or removed as proven at The Pre-Nicene Position Of The Church On Reincarnation https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2022/04/the-pre-nicene-position-of-church-on.html  .  

In contradistinction, those who are portrayed in the words: "...who God returned, and were made the children of men", indicates those who have been born under debt to others, are therefore born under the Laws associated with what Jesus portrayed as The Prison (see The Purpose Of The Natural Laws And The Prison http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#ThePrison ).  In common English Language, this process of growth and development can be portrayed in the words that, what goes around, comes around -- as you sow, so shall you reap -- or, in the words of Jesus, as you do unto others, the same will be done back unto you.   What this means is that if you do good to others, then the Laws will return back to you the good that you did.  And if you persecute and do evil unto others, then this same evil and persecution will be returned back to you.  This is the Law that develops each and every Soul to their full potential of mind and being, by returning back to each Soul the fruit of that Soul's own words, thoughts, desires and deeds.    And with respect to the debts incurred by your actions to your brothers and sisters, when Jesus stated "Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing" (Matt 5:26) -- no progress can be made from life to life, until that Soul "...hast paid the uttermost farthing" with respect to the debts that have been incurred.  Therefore, the question is: How many lives will that Soul have to live, until the debts have been repaid?  In being released from the prison, only then can they once again be born debt free as personified in the words: "For there are some children, which were so born from their mother's womb"

Jesus Taught The Law: The Law that evolves each Soul to perfection, brings about this perfection by returning to each person their own thoughts and actions. And thus, by perpetually confronting each person with their own actions, each Soul eventually evolves to perfection as stated in the words: "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7).  Which means that as you do unto others, the same will be returned back to you -- and by confronting self, you will fulfill the words: "You, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect" (Matt 5:48).  What this means is that if you love your brothers and sisters, then you will receive love and goodness in return -- and you will be able to spiritually advance.  In the words of the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen: "The soul has neither beginning nor end... Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life. Its place in this world as a vessel appointed to honor or dishonor is determined by its previous merits or demerits. Its work in this world determines its place in the world which is to follow this..."   Using rape as an example of the Natural Laws that Jesus taught:  Every man who rapes a woman, is born into a future life as a woman who is themselves raped -- i.e., each person's actions come back to them.  Eventually, by being confronted by self and a person's own actions, that Soul learns to treat others as they would want to themselves be treated -- i.e., "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets" (Matt 7:12). Telling people that they should not rape little girls, does not stop little girls from being raped -- or even sex-trafficked and made into sex-slaves. Look at how many times Bill Clinton took flights on Jeffery Epstein's Lolita Express where old men had sex with young girls? How many sources of authority have to tell someone of the stature of Bill Clinton -- a Rhodes Scholar and ex-president -- not to rape or take advantage of young girls? Would it change Bill Clinton if God somehow physically inhibited Clinton from abusing young girls? And how should this be accomplished? Should God make Bill Clinton's penis fall off? Or should he somehow surround young girls with a force-field that inhibits those who rape and engage in sex-trafficking not to engage in this common practice?  Didn't someone of the stature of Bill Clinton know right from wrong? He should have. And thus, in a future life, the actions of  Bill Clinton will be returned back to him -- and he will be raped as a young girl.  Choice and Freewill is necessary for the mental and spiritual development of the Soul. Bill Clinton has abused his freewill. And if God was to inhibit Clinton's freewill, then such an inhibiting denial of his freewill would be a detriment to the mental and spiritual development of Bill Clinton. Therefore, there is only one way to preserve Clinton's development through the exercise of choice and freewill, and that is to invoke Laws that return to each person the fruit of their own thoughts and actions.  In the case of Bill Clinton, when the Laws cause him to be born as a woman who is raped, he will have learned through his experiences that being forcefully raped is wrong.  And based upon what the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen portrays as "...strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life", eventually the Soul of Bill Clinton will treat young women as they should be treated. As witnessed by those who walked and talked with the man Jesus daily, Jesus was a man who had himself evolved to Wholeness and Perfection.  Jesus taught his disciples how to fulfill the Law within their own mind -- how to become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) -- and how to enter into Union with the Mind of God ( Coverture-Marriage - Was Jesus God? http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CovertureMarriage ).  Wherein, God could speak through Jesus -- i.e., "For it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you" (Matt 10:20) -- as Jesus explained: "...the words that I say unto you I speak not from myself: but the Father abiding in me doeth his works" (John 14:10).  And Jesus taught his original followers who walked and talked with him daily, that by fulfilling the Law of God within their own mind and being as he had taught, that they too will perform the miracles that he did: Genuine Believers Fulfill the Works and Miracles of Jesus   https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2019/12/genuine-belivers-fulfill-works-and.html

Many in the Gentile Church did not understand the evolution of the Soul over the course of many lives -- and they rejected the above noted statement "...who God returned" back into this world.   If God returned each Soul back into this life in accord with the condition each person brought about in their lives, then the priests and secular authorities who used religion to control the people, could not peddle their man-made dogma that shackled the people to ignorance.   In his writing De Principiis, the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen explains:  “For God the Creator makes a certain vessel unto honor, and other vessels to dishonor; but that vessel which has cleansed itself from all impurity He makes a vessel unto honor, while that which has stained itself with the filth of vice He makes a vessel unto dishonor. The conclusion from which, accordingly, is this, that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor" (see The Early Church On Predestination http://ChristianReincarnation.org#predestination ).   

What is most important to the followers of Jesus and the Gospel teachings of TheWay, is the requirement to fulfill the last part of the suppressed statement on the children: And there be children, who have made themselves children for the kingdom of heaven's sake"?   Basically, the process is embedded in the meaning of the Greek text at Matthew 18:3 where the King James Version (KJV) states: "Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven".  But what is presented in the original language is very different than what is presented in the KJV where the Amplified translation correctly states: “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless you repent [that is, change your inner self—your old way of thinking, live changed lives] and become like children [trusting, humble, and forgiving], you will never enter the kingdom of heaven". 

Idiots And Fools Who Throw Away The Key Of Knowledge, read the scriptures literally. In the words of the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen: “What man of sense will agree with the statement that the first, second and third days in which the evening is named and the morning, were without sun, moon and stars, and the first day without a heaven. What man is found such an idiot as to suppose that God planted trees in paradise in Eden, like a husbandman, and planted therein the tree of life, perceptible to the eyes and senses, which gave life to the eater thereof; and another tree which gave to the eater thereof a knowledge of good and evil? I believe that every man must hold these things for images, under which the hidden sense lies concealed” (Origen - Huet., Prigeniana, 167 Franck, p. 142). Therefore, those who believe the accounts are historical, must be the idiots that Origen was making reference to. I n total agreement, Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”.  So what are the scriptures? An allegorical blueprint of your own mind. In his book entitled Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, G.R.S. Mead explains that what the authors truly “…projected onto the screen… [in the form of a ] picture of the universe was in reality a picture of their own minds." He then writes of the scriptures: "Its mythology is a symbolic portrayal, almost a deliberate one, of the forces which operate in the structuring and evolution of the human personality”.

From the perspective of the allegorical texts, God is never mentioned -- and what is portrayed in all the various names that portray a deity, is the Laws and Forces of Consciousness. Jesus used the term Father -- or what can be portrayed as the Source of Consciousness within which we dwell -- as explored at Dwelling In The Mind Of God https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2021/10/dwelling-in-mind-of-god.html   Jesus taught that the Kingdom is within you -- at the Core of your Consciousness -- and it is therein that you must seek God. Yet, in order to make the journey, you will have to first understand the Cosmology of Mind through which you must navigate on your inward journey. And it is this Inward Journey that is the allegorical meaning of the scriptures that idiots and fools attempt to read as historical events -- instead of mental and spiritual events. From a Christian perspective, the Crucifixion is of primary importance -- yet ,there is no agreement of the events.  The best example of this non-historical reality is seen in the fact that it has been long noted that there is no unity and common witness of the Gospels on the crucifixion accounts. Further, the Gospel accounts of Matthew, Mark and Luke contradict each other's records of the crucifixion -- even on the parts that would be seen as the most important. Each of the Gospel accounts portray Jesus as having died at different times of the day -- wherein he supposedly spoke to different people -- gave different sets of final words and confusingly different accounts of the circumstances surrounding the death of Jesus. It is not simply a case that they recorded different details. The actions of Jesus in each Gospel account reflect general differences in perception about what Jesus' character should be.  In Mark's account Jesus is silent and mocked by all around him, and cries out in despair at the end.  But in the Gospels of Luke and John, Jesus is talkative, gives advice, and is surrounded by followers even while on the cross. Despite the massive impact they would have had on entire communities, the Gospel writers also record different supernatural events occurring upon Jesus' death. Matthew 27:51-53 describes Earthquakes and the rising of the dead -- things which no one else at all noticed. Quoting from the analysis of these accounts from the Wikipedia: These verses see the resurrection of "many" saints, and their appearance in the city where they are seen by "many." The concern that Biblical scholars have had for centuries with this story, is that these momentous events are mentioned nowhere else. Not only are they not noticed by any contemporary non-Christian sources, but none of the other gospel writers mentions this occurring. The author of Matthew gives no further details himself about this event. No reaction to these events is described, nor does he mention what happened to the saints after their appearance. Nolland speculates as to what happened after to the risen saints. He considers it unlikely that they simply returned to the grave after a brief time among the living, he also does not think it likely that the saints resumed their normal lives on Earth. Thus Nolland feels that Matthew probably imagines the saints being translated directly to heaven after a short time on Earth, similar to Elijah. The text also makes no note on why there is a two-day delay between the opening of the tombs upon Jesus' death, and the saints' appearance in the city only after Jesus' resurrection. If these events only happen two days hence, why are they mentioned here and not with the miraculous events of the resurrection at Matthew 28:2?  Some later manuscripts have "after their resurrection" rather than "his," rearranging the timeline.  Schweizer speculates that this verse contains an ancient correction to Matthew's original manuscript.  Theologically Jesus had to be the first person resurrected, so Schweizer believes the wording of this verse was switched to ensure the saints only rose after Jesus.  Most modern scholars thus do not consider these events to be historical. Bultmann refers to them as "pure novelistic motifs." Hagnar states that these events make more theological than historical sense. Brown comments that the strength of this part of the narrative is "atmosphere, not details."   There have been attempts to reconcile this verse with other sources. One proposition is that by the "holy city" Matthew is not referring to Jerusalem, but rather to heaven. The saints thus appeared only in heaven, explaining why no other source makes note of this event. Most scholars reject this understanding, as "holy city" has referred to Jerusalem throughout Matthew's gospel (such as at Matthew 4:5). The theory also fails to explain what is meant when Matthew states they were "seen by many."

Each gospel writer states their version as fact, even though it is clear that no agreement exists among the Gospel accounts. Where the critics will reject the crucifixion account on what they perceive to be flawed and conflicting accounts, it remains beyond their comprehension that the Gospels are not at all meant to be historical accounts -- and each of the Gospel narratives must be understood as a unique spiritual account -- sometimes portraying the experiences of different spheres and aspects of mind (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org  ). From the perspective of the twelve spheres of mind as allegorically represented in the twelve disciples, each of the spheres of mind experienced what is portrayed as the crucifixion or allegorical portrayal of the Final Stage of Birth differently. And if we were able to read many of the Gospel accounts suppressed by the Church, we would find no historical agreement among those with the four Gospels we presently possess.  Therefore, Origen is right -- and believers and critics alike are little more than idiots and fools who remain blind to the spiritual meaning.

  The Mental Paradigm Or Mindset Of The Gospels -- The Vehicle With The Wheels Removed: A Mental-Paradigm would portray a Foundation of Thinking from which all concepts are built in the manner of a structure that Completes the Foundational Thought or Concept.   So long as the Church remains founded upon the mental paradigm of Augustine and the doctrine of Original Sin which is based upon the Manichaeism teachings of the Iranian prophet Mani (see Original Sin And Spiritual Osmosis http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#OriginalSin ), it will remain virtually impossible for the modern Christian to embrace the core Gospel teachings, and bring about the Promise of achieving the subsequent stages of birth which enables the return of the prodigal son/daughter to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.   By design, the Original Gospel teachings are a vehicle that is able to transport the prodigal sons/daughters to the promised Land of the Edenic Kingdom.  But the removal of a crucial teaching, has rendered the vehicle of the Gospel, synonymous with a car that has the wheels removed.  And while you could still run the engine -- sit in it, sing praises, listen to the music system, sleep in it, engage your sweetheart in it, and imagine you are going some place -- but without the wheels, you would remain stationary -- thereby rendering the car incapable of fulfilling the very purpose the car was manufactured. In the same way that the wheels are necessary for the car to perform its purpose of traveling from one place to another, when you remove a key teaching from the Gospels, you render them incapable of completing the very purpose the Gospels were composed and written. In the same way that it is the wheels that enable a car to complete a journey -- and if you removed the wheels you would render the car virtually worthless with respect to completing the journey for which it was manufactured -- the journey of the Soul from the Alpha of Ignorance to the Omega of Enlightened Light is accomplished by the Soul living a multitude of lives wherein the Soul brings about the necessary Wholeness to manifest Completion and Perfection (see The Spiritual Castration Of The Gospels http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#SpiritualCastrationOfTheGospel ). 

So long as modern Christians believe that they are subject to the Manichaeism doctrine of Original Sin and Judgment Day -- and there can be no spiritual progression, because believers are required to embrace the gravely flawed Peon/Serf/Peasant/Subject/Slave Commoner  Mindset, where their objective of life is to obey the commands of the Royal Family as defined by the doctrine of the Trinity -- resulting in the fact that the faith-based believers will continue to squander away their Opportunities of Life.  Why?  When the Roman Emperor Constantine declared Jesus to be God incarnate, the whole purpose of the Gospels was undermined and thrown away.   With the removal of the teaching on the pre-existent Soul that enabled the man Jesus to evolve and arise to the highest level of human attainment, it became impossible for faith-based Christians to understand how they must fulfill the Law that enables them to attain to the promise of the Gospel teachings.  There is no thought to advancement.  The mindset of a commoner in a monarchy does not embrace the thought of advancing and becoming part of the Royal Family.  A monarchy is defined as a "political system based upon the undivided sovereignty or rule of a single person. The term applies to states in which supreme authority is vested in the monarch, an individual ruler who functions as the head of state and who achieves his or her position through heredity".  The Commoner cannot advance and become part of the Royal Family.  Yet, Jesus said of mankind: "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).  If, as Jesus stated, that God is our Father, as much as the Father of Jesus -- and each of us is the brother or sister of Jesus -- then we are not Commoners as portrayed in the doctrine of Original Sin and the Trinity.   Further, Jesus further stated of mankind: "Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, 'I said, You are gods '?" (John 10:34). 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... thereby it is demonstrated that all men are deemed worthy of becoming ‘gods’, and of having power to become sons of the Highest”.  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”

 

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 (see http://BeingOfLight.com  ), 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"  (see TheCall To The Wedding Banquette http://TheCall.Nazirene.org ).

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 bottom line of Soul-Reality, is that it is impossible to believe and follow the Gospel teachings, and arise to perfection and wholeness in one lifetime.  Why?  Because each aspect of mind must be developed in order for the person to become Whole and Complete in their development.  When the disciples asked Jesus if the man's blindness was due to his own sin in a previous life -- i.e., "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) -- modern Christians have no means to relate to such a question.  When Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders that the “…tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you” (Matt 21:31 RSV), such a statement simply has no place within the present day understanding of Christian teachings.  Why?  Because from the perspective of the dogma of the Church, modern Christians are without a means to explain Jesus' words.  Therefore, most Bible commentaries simply ignore the implications of this passage of scripture. One widely used commentary attempts to correct the statement of Jesus by changing the words to “instead of” -- which would then make the meaning dogmatically correct and read: “The tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God instead of you”.   In the above verse of scripture we are presented with one of the core reasons why the original followers of Jesus believed differently than most Christians today -- inquiring whether the man was born blind because of the sins incurred in a previous life.  Therefore, the question that must be posed is: When will the chief priests and elders enter into the kingdom? Modern Christian doctrine states that because of their disbelief and rejection of Christ, they will be cut off from the face of God, and condemned to eternal judgment. And yet we cannot deny the fact that Jesus' own words convey the message that there will come a time when the chief priests and elders will also enter the Kingdom of God -- and it will be at a time after the tax collectors and harlots who believed, repented, picked up their own crosses and followed in TheWay.    

In the same way that the disciples asked Jesus the question: Was the man's present blindness caused by the sin in the man's previous lives, unresolved causal-factors can imprison you until they are resolved.  Jesus conveyed this reality in the words: "Reconcile quickly with your adversary, while you are still on the way to court. Otherwise he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison" (Matt 5:25) -- see The Natural Laws And The Prison http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#ThePrison .  How long can our actions imprison us?  In the words of Jesus: "Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing."   Therefore, the answer is: Like the movie Groundhog Day, How many lives will be required for you to resolve the issues with your adversary that is the causal-factor inhibiting your progress in this and the subsequent lives your Soul will live?  Thus the oft ignored warning: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7).  Or, in the words of the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen who is known as the Prince of Christian learning in the third century: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).  That the Natural Laws of Creation monitor every event in our lives, is the basis of the statement: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14).  The answer to this dilemma is revealed in the fact that each of us is moving through life in a Labyrinth Of The Natural Laws (see The Laws That Control Our Life http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TheLawsThatControlOurLives ) -- and these Laws within which the whole of our life is immersed, responds directly to the everyday choices that we make. 

How does "a worse thing come unto thee" based upon each person's actions?  And what this means is that the judgments of the Natural Laws that are initiated by each person's actions against them in their future tribulations, will have been invoked by the causal-factors of the man's previous actions -- which cannot be resolved until the man "hast paid the uttermost farthing."   How is each person imprisoned until they have repaid the "...uttermost farthing"?  And what is the fate of each person when they finely have repaid the "...uttermost farthing"?  What then?  Thus, this reality that is no longer understood by the modern Christian is why the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen 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" (see http://ChristianReincarnation.org ).  Which confirms that question of the disciples when they asked whether it was the sin of a previous life that caused the malady of the man's present life -- the sin of his parents and the environment in which the person was reared -- of has the person yet to reap the benefits of living a Godly Life and is in the process of picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay in pursuit of achieving the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) as promised.

  The Devil's Offspring: When the original followers of Jesus expressed the need to fulfill the Law, it was not the literal allegorical text of the Torah which is observed in outward ritual and tradition in the manner of the Jews that Jesus portrayed as the "devil's offspring" (see The Devil's Spawn http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com ) -- but rather, the Universal Law of Mind, Consciousness and Spirit that is allegorically presented and functioning within each and every one of us.   The Logos or Word of God that is portrayed as the Son of God, is within each of us -- and by fulfilling the Law, Jesus entered into a Coverture-Union with the Logos/Word/Son of God (see Coverture-Marriage - Was Jesus God? http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CovertureMarriage ).  Therefore, when the Ebionite Nazirene were portrayed as being Torah Observant, the Law was therefore observed in the exact manner that Jesus said was necessary -- i.e., "The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you--they are full of the Spirit and life" (John 6:63).   The early Church writer Epiphanius wrote that the Ebionites "do not accept Moses' Pentateuch in its entirety; certain sayings they reject... stating Christ has revealed this to me, and will blaspheme most of the legislation" (Panarion 30.18.7-9).   For them to be accused of "blaspheming most of the legislation",  means that they did not at all observe the Torah outwardly in accordance with the letter of the written word in the manner of the Jews -- but rather, they understood the allegorical symbolism that was applicable to unlocking the inner door within each of us to the Edenic Kingdom within us.    Therefore, the Ebionites used the scriptures as Jesus taught as the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ) by turning the scriptures within their own mind and being, in the transformation of the body into the Living Consecrated Temple of the Most High.  And this is why Jesus commanded his disciples to pick up their own cross and travail in TheWay -- following in his footsteps.  

  Jesus The Pattern For All Of Mankind: That the historical man Jesus was a pattern for all of mankind because of his success in overcoming and fulfilling the Laws within himself, 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 this body of original core followers and disciple believed that when anyone "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs" (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34 - see http://Ebionite.com ).   Which means that what Jesus accomplished, is in fact the eventual destiny of all of mankind who are portrayed as the lost prodigal sons and daughters of their Heavenly Father.   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).     That the historical Jesus was a true holy man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Royal Law within himself, is attested to at Acts 2:22 where Jesus is portrayed as "a man, attested to you by God" -- and this was demonstrated by God performing "mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst".   If Jesus was himself God incarnate as believed by the later Romans, then these words portraying Jesus as a man approved by God through the works and wonders that God did through him, never would have been presented in this manner.  

The Consecrated Life: It was the living of the necessary Consecrated Life that Jesus ordained, and the seeking of the Kingdom within, that enabled the historical man Jesus to become the Messiah, and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God -- a path and teachings that the modern Church totally rejects based upon the doctrine of faith apart from one's actions which was instituted by Martin Luther.   And the reality that Jesus, the man, became the Anointed, and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God, is especially demonstrated in the words of Edward Gibbon with respect to the original position of the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus that he was in “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366).   

A Purely Spiritual Kingdom: When questioned by Pilate, Jesus said that his Kingdom was not of this world: "Jesus answered, 'My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight... but now My kingdom is not from here'" (John 18:36 NKJ).   The reality of this inner Kingdom was further confirmed when Jesus stated to the Pharisees: "Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, 'See here!' or 'See there!' For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21 NKJ).   And that this was the original Ebionite Nazirene teaching on the Kingdom is further documented by Edward Gibbon in the Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire where he writes: "Among the Christians who were brought before the tribunal of the emperor, or, as it seems more probable, before that of the procurator of Judaea, two persons are said to have appeared, distinguished by their extraction, which was more truly noble than that of the greatest monarchs. These were the grandsons of St. Jude the apostle, who himself was the brother of Jesus Christ.   Their natural pretensions to the throne of David might perhaps attract the respect of the people, and excite the jealousy of the governor; but the meanness of their garb, and the simplicity of their answers, soon convinced him that they were neither desirous nor capable of disturbing the peace of the Roman empire. They frankly confessed their royal origin, and their near relation to the Messiah; but they disclaimed any temporal views, and professed that his kingdom, which they devoutly expected, was purely of a spiritual and angelic nature."

The grandsons of Jude devoutly expected the Kingdom to come within them, because they understood how man must fulfill the Law within one's self -- thereby becoming the Living Temple of the Most High.   The Ebionite Nazirene Disciples of Jesus understood the words: "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:17-20).

 

Taking The Kingdom By Force:

 

In The House:

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

Which provokes the question: Why couldn't the authors of the Gospels speak plainly -- so that even people of a simple-mind would comprehend what was being conveyed to the reader?  In the words of Paul, those baptized and confirmed Christians who are of a "natural" organic human consciousness, are incapable of comprehending their own higher Soul-Reality -- because they are of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness.  To ignore these words as the vast majority of people do, is their own spiritual death.   If it is true that baptized and committed Christians are incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the Soul and Spirit -- and what is literally written is for the spiritually immature -- then to simply skip over this warning, causes the person to remain spiritually flat-lined.  With respect to the unhistorical allegorical symbols employed in the scriptures, St. Augustine portrayed the faith-based Christians as slaves to the allegorical symbols they have no understanding of the true spiritual meaning when he wrote that: “He is a slave to a sign who uses or worships a significant thing without knowing what it signifies.   But he who uses or venerates a useful sign divinely instituted whose signifying force he understands does not venerate what he sees and what passes away but rather that to which all such things are to be referred.  Such a man is spiritual and free, even during that time of servitude in which it is not yet opportune to reveal to carnal minds those signs under whose yoke they are to be tamed” (De Doctrina Christiana).   

 

 

and was set forth allegorically as seen in the words: "...and its text they related some one way and some another"? And this is confirmed in the Epistle of Peter And James where it is written: "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."  In like manner, there is sufficient evidence to conclude that all of the original -- more spiritual -- signatures of the gospels were written in Hebrew Characters. This fact is acknowledged by Montague Rhodes James in his book, The Apocryphal New Testament, when he wrote: "Epiphanius goes on to say that he had heard of Hebrew Versions of John and Acts kept privately in the treasuries (Geniza) at Tiberias".  These Original Gospels composed in Hebrew Characters were written for the more spiritually advanced followers of Jesus.   When Jesus said to his original followers: “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) -- he was making note that the vast majority of people could not comprehend the higher soul and spiritual realities that are allegorically portrayed and preserved in the Original Gospel teachings.   

 

 

Jesus did not write any Gospels or teachings.  Even though the Ebionite Nazirenes were the Source of both the teachings and the original Gospels, the Gentile Church portrayed the Ebionite Nazirenes as heretics.  Why?   Because the Gentiles did not understand the spiritual meaning of the Law of God that enabled the man Jesus to become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) -- and in not understanding the Inner Kingdom and the spiritual potential of the prodigal son/daughter, the Gentiles could not comprehend the process of fulfilling the Law to achieve man's ultimate destiny of becoming At-One with the Mind of God -- i.e., achieving Absolute Wholeness and being restored to the Edenic Kingdom.  But in the same way that it is man's destiny to achieve Wholeness, it is also man's destiny to tap into the Inner Source of all Truth and Knowledge.  Which means that regardless of the corruptions of despotic faux-religious and secular leaders, all men and women who understand the Natural Laws, and achieve Wholeness of Mind and Being, are able to tap into the Truth of all Truths at the Core Essence of their True-Self.   Further, in understanding the Natural Laws, any man and woman who enter into a Coverture Consecrated Marriage, have the potential to tap into the Source of Truth and Knowledge within them (see The Real Facts Of Life You Were Never Told About http://TheRealFactsOfLife.Ebionite.com ). 

With the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the long-held position of biblical scholars was confirmed in the words of A. Powell Davies who stated: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).  What does it mean that the scholars acknowledge that the origin of Christianity is not what believers have been told by the Church?  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!   And when Prof. John Allegro was quoted as saying that what has been revealed in the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls is a great amount of overwhelming evidence that “...may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church.   This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers.   The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine” (August 1966 issue of Harpers Magazine).   What all the many recent archaeological discoveries have confirmed and demonstrated is that Prof. Allegro was correct in his assertion that our modern-day understanding of the source and originality of Christian doctrine” is defective.   Why?   Because neither the original teachings, or the corrupted scriptures, simply does not support the tenets and structure of an organized dogmatic church as we have today.   In the words of Prof. Elaine Pagles, in her book, The Gnostic Gospels:  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”.    

Those Christians who are in denial of the corruption of the scriptures (see http://TheLawOfTheGospels.com#GospelCorruptions ), attempt to justify their position by stating: If God permitted the Gospels to be corrupted, then man would not know what to believe?  But, if a person understands the Natural Laws and man's ability to fulfill the Law as Jesus taught, and become Whole, then anyone who fulfilled the Law, could tap into the Truth that exists at the Core Essence of their Mind and Being, and they would then know the Truth of all Truths.  And this is why Jesus in fact stated: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).  Jesus did not say that to become Whole you need Jesus.  Neither did he say that you need the Gospels to become Whole.  And only those who understand the Laws of God that manifests our Consciousness and it's Source, will be able to comprehend the words of Jesus -- that the prodigal son does not need a physician, or scriptures to Know the Word/Law of God that brings about the necessary Wholeness for the prodigal son/daughter to be restored to the Edenic Kingdom.  

Today, the website at www.Ebionite.com is the only modern eyewitness resource on the original Gospel teachings by virtue of the fact that these articles associated with this website are based upon the recall of the Soul of Allan Cronshaw ( www.Cronshaw.us ) who lived as Jacob who they call James, the Brother of Yeshua who they call Jesus (see www.BrotherOfYeshua.com AND www.BrotherOfJesus.org ).  What is the purpose of these articles?  By restoring the Original Teachings that were suppressed by the later Church, each faithful seeker/believer develops the ability to tap into The One Teacher (see http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ) that Jesus commanded to seek out exclusively, in order to learn the Truth from the Source of Truth -- and not being shackled by the doctrines of men who are too carnal to comprehend the Truth.  

 

 

The Trinity As The Divine Pattern Of Mind & Creation: The Eternal Light of Spirit is the direct balance of the Male and Female Polarities of Father Mother God. The Light itself is portrayed as the Son of God -- or, more appropriately the Mind or Logos/Word of God. And this is the Reality of the Trinity that is holographically replicated into every aspect of Creation. Which means that there is nothing but Mind and Consciousness -- and all of Creation exists within the Mind of God -- i.e., “‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’” (Acts 17:28).  The fact that "...we live and move and have our being", in the Mind of God, means that it is impossible for God to incarnate into a single person such as the man named Jesus.  As confirmed by the Ebionite followers who personally walked and talked with the man Jesus, the objective is to become At-One with the Mind (Logos/Word/Son) of God -- see At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement  AND Acts 3:19 http://BrotherOfJesus.org#Acts  AND Coverture-Marriage - Was Jesus God? http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CovertureMarriage  .   When a person enters into a Coverture-Marriage Union with the Mind/Logos/Word/Son of God, then God is able to directly manifest and speak through the person. 

If as Jesus taught, the Kingdom of God is within us -- and the Ultimate Source of our Consciousness is in fact the Inner Core and Essence that all of mankind is an expression of -- which ultimately, is God ("...for in Him we live and move and have our being") -- and as Expressions of the Divine Mind, we are able to put on the required Wedding Garment (see TheCall To The Wedding Banquette http://TheCall.Nazirene.org ) and enter into a Coverture Marriage with the Logos/Son of God -- then when we enter into such a Marriage/Union, and we speak, it is the Logos/Word/Son of God speaking through us: "But when they hand you over, do not worry about how to respond or what to say. In that hour you will be given what to say. For it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you" (Mat 10:19-20).   As stated by Supreme Court Justice Black with respect to a Coverture Marriage  when he made the observation: “…this rule has worked out in reality to mean that though the husband and wife are one, the one is the husband”.  And it was therefore the Logos (a.k.a. Son of God) who spoke through the man Jesus and stated: “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am” (John 8:58) -- which words was "For it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you" (Matt 10:20) -- as Jesus explained: "Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I say unto you I speak not from myself: but the Father abiding in me doeth his works" (John 14:10).  Therefore, the Original Gospel Teachings were set forth to the lost prodigal sons and daughters how to enter into a Coverture-Marriage with the Logos/Son of God -- and the Original Gospel teachings did not tell people what to believe -- but rather, how to tap into the Universal Source of Truth and Consciousness within them, and Experience the Truth.  

When the Gospel of Thomas saying 22 states: "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; ...then will you enter the kingdom." Not only is all growth and development of mind and spirit brought through the interaction of the Male/Positive and Female/Negative Polarities that are the seat of Consciousness and direct expressions of the Divine Trinity, but so too are the next subsequent states of birth that enables a person and a soul to manifest on a Higher Plane of Consciousness and Being. And the process of achieving the subsequent stages of birth are explored in the esoteric teachings of Jesus on the Tree of Life (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ).

Did Jesus have a body of esoteric teachings that could only be revealed to a select few? “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).  Why couldn't Jesus convey the Truth to everyone who was listening to him speak -- i.e., "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34).  Because the mind of organic (carnal) man is too fragmented and divided -- and is therefore undeveloped, and cannot comprehend his own higher Soul-Reality.   To understand that higher spiritual meaning of the parable, the person had to have begun the development of their mind (see “And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13) -- as stated with respect to the need to become the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed: The Sower And The Seed http://SowerAndTheSeed.Ebionite.com ).

   The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind: An Enlightened Mind perceives the world from many different paradoxical and often opposite perspectives.  Because of their great diversity of perception, the Enlightened Mind is then able to see the world from the perspective of Balanced Wholeness.  Man's superior intellect that enables their ability to see and understand from vastly different perspectives, is the product of the Natural Laws which manifest and developmentally control his Mind and Consciousness.  Man's higher intellect is borne out of his ability to almost hold council where different sub-personalities or aspect of self are free to express their unique vision within the one mind of a single individual person.  This separation within the one mind is maintained by the Natural Laws which manifest and maintain a Pattern across the spectrum of Consciousness and Creation.  When these Natural Laws are understood, they have the effect of dividing  the consciousness of the person by what Nikola Tesla portrayed as "frequency and vibration" -- i.e., "If you wish to understand the universe, think of energy, frequency and vibration".   Wise men who possessed Self-Knowledge throughout man's past, understood the Natural Laws -- and especially the effect of what is known as the Law of Octaves (see The Enigma Of The Law Of Octaves http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Enigma ).   In the same way that an Octave in Music is made up of eight individual notes or frequencies -- which is itself made up of twelve individual half-tones -- the mind of man is divided into twelve major spheres of mind that all perceive and understand the world from a different and often conflicting perspective.  When the Deist American Constitutional Framers (see Deism - The Universal Spiritual Path http://Deism.DivineStrategery.com  ) acknowledged The Laws Of Nature And Nature's God, one of the elements of Natural Law that is not at all understood today is seen in the fact that the Laws MUST manifest and maintain WHOLENESS!!!   Which provokes the question: What constitutes Wholeness?   The White Light of our Soul or Higher Soul-Self (see http://BeingOfLight.com ) is made-up of the seven colors of the rainbow which manifest in and through our seven Spiritual Centers (Chakras).  Wholeness therefore, depends upon the level of Consciousness you are at. 

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 mind and being -- some of which are only vaguely understood even today.   Thus, while wholeness is very simple in the example of the amoeba because of the lack of division within the mind of the amoeba, the intelligence of the amoeba is virtually non-existent.   And while both the human and the amoeba each represent a single whole unit, wholeness from a human perspective is very complex -- even far more complex than what is 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.

Natural Law Maintains Balanced Wholeness Across The Spectrum Of Humanity: If you could somehow acknowledge the almost countless perceptive-opinions among mankind, it is crucial to understand that each of these opinions are the result of the Natural Laws causing each person to see and understand the world and the life they are living from a unique and different perspective.   What this means is that each of these opinions are drawn from specific fragments of mind -- each fragment (of mind) is an integral part of the Whole -- and each fragment is created and maintained by the Natural Laws of Creation.  Which means that the opinion of each person has been pre-ordained by the workings of the Natural Laws upon their consciousness.  In the subheading entitled Jesus The (Law) Professor I explored the reality that what Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount was not an unprovable religious belief -- but very much a vision of the actual workings of the Natural Laws that control every aspect of our personal development and lives. Mankind learns and develops by becoming what he judges and condemns.  And the reason why the Sermon on the Mount is not taught in all Law schools and universities, is because of our modern day cultural ignorance of the Natural Laws that control every aspect of the lives we live.

Holographically, as above, so below, and within -- and the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life as patterned at the right, is the universal reality of mind throughout not only all of Creation, but also within our own mind and being.  From a holographic perspective, 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).   The Tree of Life is a perceptual pattern of Consciousness -- as manifest in man, in the Cosmos, and within the Mind of God as manifest throughout all of Creation.  When rightly understood, the scriptures are an allegorical blueprint of the mind that is used by serious seekers to connect with their inner Source of Consciousness.  Allegorically, the pattern of mind is portrayed in the twelve tribes of Israel, as well as the twelve disciples of Jesus in the Gospel accounts.  As presented at The Tree Of Life And The Divine Marriage, the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil), is the male and female outer left and right columns personified in the pattern on the right.   There is no such thing as a male or female Soul.  The Soul is a Being of Light ( http://BeingOfLight.com ) that is the perfect balance of the SELF-CONTAINED male/female opposites, as well as what is portrayed as the heavenly and earthly.  And it is this pattern of Duality that must be overcome within us, in order to inherit the Gospel promise of gaining entrance into Life.  And this reality is presented in the Gospel of Thomas in the 22nd saying where the disciples as Jesus: "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"  To which Jesus replied: "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; ...then will you enter the kingdom."   When rightly understood, the merger of opposites is making reference to the opposite spheres of mind of the diagram of the Tree of Life at the right.

To eat the fruit of the Tree of Life, is to enter into Higher Spiritual Life -- i.e., And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever" (Gen 3:22) -- "Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" (Rev 22:1-2).   The fruit of the Tree of Life can only be consumed, when each of the twelve spheres of mind are fully evolved and balanced one with another, and brought into a reality of Wholeness.  
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: IN THE OUTER WORLD, since each person as a one-cell embryo can only represent one single point of consciousness within the greater pattern of the Cosmic 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 twelve dimensional Higher Plane of Existence, it is impossible to project (twelve dimensional) 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 as a single point of consciousness, and 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 of Mind.   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 http://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 Consciousness 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 at conception.   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 our 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 Pearl 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.   Those who possess the knowledge of the Natural Laws, understand that the thinking of each person is determined by the singular point within the 144,000 spectrum of the pattern of mind as portrayed in the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life ( http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ) each person is perceiving the world through.   All the different opinions -- philosophical outlooks -- and schools of thought -- are all the result of the Laws that person was conceived and born under.   And what this means is that while you may not agree with the perception of life of other people because they are also representative of 1/144,000th of the whole, it is important to understand that 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.   And this Wholeness of Self 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 your own 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 freewill 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.          

In the article Criminal Minds Are Different From Yours, Brain Scans Reveal it is explained: "The latest neuroscience research is presenting intriguing evidence that the brains of certain kinds of criminals are different from those of the rest of the population.  While these findings could improve our understanding of criminal behavior, they also raise moral quandaries about whether and how society should use this knowledge to combat crime."  In the same article it is further noted that:  Another brain study, published in the September 2009 Archives of General Psychiatry, compared 27 psychopaths — people with severe antisocial personality disorder — to 32 non-psychopaths. In the psychopaths, the researchers observed deformations in another part of the brain called the amygdala, with the psychopaths showing a thinning of the outer layer of that region called the cortex and, on average, an 18-percent volume reduction in this part of brain. 

"The amygdala is the seat of emotion. Psychopaths lack emotion. They lack empathy, remorse, guilt," said research team member Adrian Raine, chair of the Department of Criminology at the University of Pennsylvania, at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, D.C., last month.  In addition to brain differences, people who end up being convicted for crimes often show behavioral differences compared with the rest of the population. One long-term study that Raine participated in followed 1,795 children born in two towns from ages 3 to 23. The study measured many aspects of these individuals' growth and development, and found that 137 became criminal offenders.

When the relationship of Spiritual DNA, the Natural Laws that segment the mind, as well as the point within the Tree of Life that a person is conceived under, means is 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.  John 7:24 states: "Stop judging according to outward appearances; rather judge according to righteous judgment."  In order to make a righteous judgment in contradistinction to "outward appearances", one must perceptively comprehend the causal factors.

Matt 7:1-5   Do not judge, or you will be judged. 2For with the same judgment you pronounce, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but fail to notice the beam in your own eye?  How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while there is still a beam in your own eye? 5You hypocrite! First take the beam out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.  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. 

  Triangulation - Overcoming The Tower Of Babel Syndrome: In understanding the Natural Laws of Creation that subjects all of mankind to the Tower Of Babel Syndrome -- a reality created because of the Enigma Of The Segmented Mind whereby each person is born polarized to a single point of 1/144,000th within the Pattern of Mind as portrayed in the Tree of Life -- Jesus taught to turn the other cheek in a discerning non-judgmental manner when encountering others (see Jesus The {Law} Professor).  In the manner of the Tower Of Babel which is portrayed in the words: “Now the whole world had one language and a common speech… But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. The LORD said, ‘If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other’” (Gen 11:1-7 NIV).   In the allegorical portrayal, the people were attempting to connect the Earth with the Heavens by building a tower out of purely earthly substances -- which is impossible to accomplish without achieving Wholeness -- i.e., "And when Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of a physician..." (Mark 2:17).   Yet, this wholeness remains beyond our reach so long as we remain ignorant of the Laws, and (organically) polarized to the point of mind of our conception and birth.   Thus, to break out of our birth-limitations, we must develop those areas of mind that remain inactive in "natural" organic man -- limiting him to what Paul portrayed as an "animal-soul" level of consciousness.   And this development beyond the organic can only be achieved through the process of triangulating the impressions of our brothers and sisters who are born in accord with a different point of mind (1/144,000th) within the spectrum of the Tree of Life.   And through the process of discerning without judgment, we are able to connect the points of mind within us to which that other person would correspond within the Natural Laws. 

In the allegory of the Tower of Babel, each  person is portrayed as speaking a different language, because they perceive the world from a different point of mind and consciousness within the spectrum of the Tree of Life.   And this great difference between the perceptive-thinking and vision of each person, is necessary in order to maintain Cosmic-Wholeness.  Because Wholeness of Mind cannot be manifest in a one-cell embryo at conception -- and only one point or 1/144,00th can be manifest in such a limited environment of the Primary Cell -- each person perceives the world from that point within the spectrum of the Laws that they are born under -- which causes the vast difference of opinion and perception that causes mankind to dwell in an environment of confusion.   And because when you are born into this world as a Cosmic Ovum and Sperm (see The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm), this world can be portrayed as the womb of Mother-Earth that is the necessary environment to bring about the next stage of (mental) development and birth into the Kingdom of Man (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature and Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple).   That the present life you are living provides you the opportunity to enter the Kingdom of Man, which is why Paul portrays "natural" organic man as being of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness that is incapable of comprehending man's higher soul and spiritual reality.  

In the article on the Key of Knowledge it is demonstrated in the subheading The Spiritual Diaspora - Rejection Of Human Opinion, that the opinions set forth by men of a "natural" organic condition of mind, is to be totally rejected as factitious and heresy.   Which means that all the Bible Commentaries -- all the sectarian opinions, positions and dogma -- are all gravely misleading and in opposition to the core teachings of the Gospel and the New Covenant.   And when the Gospel account of Jesus said that the blind guides should first remove the beam from their own eyes, before they attempt to remove the splinters from the eyes of their brothers and sisters, he was making reference to their own inherent organic blindness caused by their abject ignorance of the Laws and the meaning of the allegorical portrayal of the Tower of Babel Syndrome, and their failure to properly utilize the scriptures in conjunction with the proper use of the Key of Knowledge.   By taking advantage of the requirement of the Laws to maintain Wholeness across the Cosmic Tree of Life -- understanding that each person BY LAW, perceives the world from a different perspective -- and that when you encounter these vastly different perspectives, they can act as an important catalyst that enables the seeker to connect and activate those latent points of consciousness within themselves that each person represents -- thereby enabling the seeker to connect with their own latently-dormant points of consciousness within their own mind -- thereby expanding their own minds beyond their own organic limitations -- enabling the seeker to bring about the process of expansion and deepening of mind which initiates the necessary mental-development to bring about the next stage of birth (Soul-Birth) -- enabling the seeker/disciple to become At-One with their Higher Soul-Self ( http://SoulSelf.org ). 

What this means is that the greatest obstacles to the process of Gospel enlightenment is the Churches and Organized Religion based upon man-made dogma and human opinion -- and Academia that not only inhibits wholeness and alienates the student from their own True-Self.   The further inhibiting students from the higher development of mind is the Academia And The Feminist Cultural War On Women http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#AcademiaWarOnWomen -- whereby they inhibit the Feminine development of the Intuitive, and attempt to program women as what is best portrayed as linear-thinking surrogate men.  That woman is the Intuitive opposite from Linear man -- and the interaction of the two opposites is necessary to bring about the development of mind which can initiate the next stage of Soul-Birth -- is essential for human development beyond the organic level of consciousness.  As is the process of Triangulation by virtue of discernment without judgment, which process must be embraced every day of the seekers life.        

Physically, a fetus is born when the necessary degree of wholeness is achieved that permits the infant to live outside the womb of its mother.   Holographically -- what is true of the pattern in the physical, is also true on a mental and spiritual level -- and we therefore enter this world as a Cosmic Ovum Or Sperm , where the womb of Mother-Earth provides the necessary environment for our development and entrance into the Kingdom of Man through the process of Soul-Birth.   We develop into the next level of embryo and fetus -- holographically -- through the interaction of opposites (see The Holographic Pattern Of Sex).   And this interaction of opposites is not only true with respect to the Divine Union of Man and Woman (see The Esoteric Feminine Mystique) -- but through the process of mental-expansion, it is necessary to overcome the Natural Laws imposed upon the individual as personified in the Tower of Babel Syndrome, and bring about the expansion and deepening of mind through empathic-discernment without judgment of our fellow brothers and sisters.     

  Triangulation - The Laws - The Spiritually Mature Mind:  With respect to the Enigma of the Segmented Mind  and the process of Triangulation that is explored in the above (see Triangulation), it is one thing to ignore what can be portrayed as the lame-brain ideas and beliefs of a great many people -- and quite another thing when you come to realize that these people are presenting you with what appears to be lame-brain ideas and sometimes really asinine beliefs, for your own benefit.  When rightly understood, these people are helping you and your ability to evolve the mind beyond "animal-soul" organic limitations.  And if you judge them -- calling them stupid and ignorant -- your judgments will come back upon you, because you will become what you judge. The Law is that any movement in one direction, initiates its opposite. And unless that opposite can be resolved through your own Wholeness of Mind, then you will become what you judge. And this is why I portray Jesus as the Law Professor -- not because when Jesus warns about judging in the Sermon on the Mount, it is not a religious belief -- but rather, a matter of Natural Law -- i.e., Laws that over the course of many Soul-Lives, evolve the Soul to a condition of Completion and Wholeness. What Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount has absolutely nothing to do with beliefs -- but an inescapable reality that has the effect of imprisoning the Soul in meaningless lives of tribulation (see ThePrison ).

In today's PC Topsy Tervey Culture, we have students demanding safe zones so they don't have to hear opposing opinions and positions.  We have the extreme Left Wing promoting their very one-sided positions -- condemning all other perceptive-opinions as dangerous, racist, anti-American -- portraying these opposing opinions and positions as being inferior.  And when you begin to understand the Laws, today's Left Wing radicals were the very Right Wingers who they condemn and reject today -- and vice versa.  Today's race merchants who promote racial dissension, was yesterday's racists and slave-owners.  Today's radical feminists were yesterday's misogynists and abusers of women.  Today's politicians were yesterday's priests who promoted theocracies.  Today's Atheists were yesterday's fire and brimstone hell-fire preachers.  Today's abused wives were often yesterday's abusers of women.

When you learn to Triangulate in the presence of others who are presented to you as a catalyst, you can often begin to connect with not only those aspects of self that would be in agreement with the other person's beliefs, opinions or ideological positions, but in many instances you can connect with your own Soul's past lives who were either in league or in opposition to what the person who is acting as a catalyst represents to you.  Quoting from http://SoulSelf.org#SoulSymphony :

When the scribes and Pharisees wanted to stone the woman who had been caught in adultery -- i.e., and Jesus said: "...He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first" (John 8:3-11 NKJ)-- what Jesus in fact said was ultra-important to understand.  The word rendered sin in this instance, appears nowhere else in the Gospels -- and it should be interpreted "...He who is without sin [in any lifetime] among you, let him throw a stone at her first."  If the Law stated that an adulterous woman should be stoned, then why didn't Jesus throw the first stone? As is demonstrated in The Biblical Foundational Mindset @ http://ChristianReincarnation.org#BiblicalFoundationalMindset , the scribes and Pharisees understood that the Laws which bring about the Conditions of Birth ( http://ChristianReincarnation.org#ConditionsOfBirth ) for each person, determines the life that they are living in the present, by virtue of the deeds and accomplishments of their previous lives which their soul has lived -- lives which continue within the higher reality of the soul, by virtue of the fact that what man perceives as time, is merely a dimension of mind (see The Enigma Of Time @ http://SoulSelf.org#EnigmaOfTime). And the scribes and Pharisees understood that it was impossible to be without sin over the course of the countless lifetimes that each person's soul has lived.

This is not to say that the seeker should cease to perceptively-discern right from wrong -- as Jesus said to the man who he had healed: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).  Discernment of right and wrong in one's brothers and sisters requires the insight not only what is right and wrong, but also the causal factor into what has caused the other person to act in the manner they are.   Was their sin the product of spiritual immaturity?  Were they forced into that role by the Laws because of their past judgment of others?  Or, has the life they are presently living been orchestrated by the previous actions of that person's own Soul?  And when Jesus warned the person that if they sin again "...a worse thing will come unto them", this assertion was a matter of Natural Law where our actions are returned back upon us -- i.e., “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).  And in the same way that Jesus understood these Natural Laws of Creation, any person with evolved and developed Intuitive spheres of mind is able to perceive the causal factors behind a person's present experiences in life -- the good, the bad, the indifferent and the ugly.

Modern society is absolutely clueless with respect to the causal-factors in the events and experiences of mankind, because our religions, our philosophies, our governments and academia are all build upon a gravely flawed foundation.  Our teachers and professors throughout every level of academia program their students that their lives are controlled by luck of the draw, good fortune, accident caused event model of thinking.  Where, when the Laws are understood, nothing could be further from the truth.  That every event in one's life is the direct result of a causal factor that has been initiated by each person's own past, is an enslaving reality that Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount was teaching -- teaching in order to assist the people to escape the shackles of their own ignorance of the Laws.  Which provokes the question: Should students throughout academia be informed that what they experience in life is directly orchestrated by their own past words, thoughts, desires and deeds?  And that they are responsible for the life they are present living -- i.e., the good, the bad, the indifferent and the ugly.  If they are poor, a victim, a homosexual -- as well as every other condition of life -- their own Soul's previous actions are the author of the life they are living at the present.  In all aspects of life, the chickens of a person's past come home to roost in the present (see http://DivineStrategery.com#chickens ).

That modern man is for the most part blind to this higher reality and meaning of what they see, is because they fail to develop themselves -- and they embrace and support pseudo-religious and pseudo-secular authorities who for their own preservation of power, force other men and women to conform to their dictates -- again repeating the little understood statement in the Revelation: “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).  Those who force their opinions, rules, man-made laws, philosophy and judgments upon others -- leading them into captivity to those opinions, beliefs, religious dogma, philosophies or secular man-made ordinances -- will themselves be slain by the Sword of the Laws that return to each person or group of people the fruit of their own actions.  Those who lead others into captivity -- or support those who force their will upon others -- will themselves become imprisoned by the Laws until they cease to exert force upon their brothers and sisters.

A person who has developed their Intuitive spheres of mind who learns to Triangulate and discern without judgment, can often see what enslaves that other person. Often connecting to an ideology, philosophy or theology in their own past that has enslaved them. But in the same way that our modern culture is ignorant of the causal factors that orchestrate the lives people are presently living, academia inhibits the development of the Intuitive because what is known as Second-Sight fails to confirm the counterfeit philosophy that is taught in our schools and universities today (see Academia And The Feminist Cultural War On Women http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#AcademiaWarOnWomen ). Thus, it is our institutions who fail to understand the power of discernment in combination with Triangulation that reveals the causal-factors that shackle mankind to lives of suffering and abject ignorance of the very Laws that control every aspect of their lives.

The following is quotations from biblical scholars, experts and historical authorities who are quoted in the article, Bible Corruption (see http://BibleCorruption.com ), and is compiled in the below for the convenience of the reader:

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.

In his book The Text of the New Testament, Dr. Vincent Taylor writes that "The manuscripts of the New Testament preserve traces of two kinds of dogmatic alterations: those which involve the elimination or alteration of what was regarded as doctrinally unacceptable or inconvenient, and those which introduce into the Scriptures proof for a favorite theological tenet or practice".

 

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 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."

In his book, Introduction to the New Testament, B.W. Bacon wrote: "The Christian can only mitigate the disrespect he feels for plagiarists and impostors by the reflection that the conscience of the second century had practically no recognition for those literary crimes, rampant as they then were in the Church" (p. 168). Yet it is the product of these "literary crimes" that believers put their faith in when they read their Bibles today!

 

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). 

 To which allegation the third century Church Father Origen replied: "Besides, it is not at all fair to bring this charge against the Christian religion as a crime unworthy of its pretended purity; only those persons who were concerned in the fraud should, in equity, be held answerable for it" (Origen, Contra Celsus).

 

What we fail to realize today is that during this period, every single document was edited and revised to confirm the doctrine of the Roman Church. The noted Church Historian Eusebius quotes the Church Father Dionysius (Hist. Eccl., Bk. 4. 23), who reports that his own epistles had been tampered with: "When my fellow Christians invited me to write letters to them I did so. These the devil's apostles have filled with tares, taking away some things and adding others. For them the woe is reserved. Small wonder then if some have dared to tamper even with the word of the Lord Himself, when they have conspired to mutilate my own humble efforts".

 

Eusebius writes of a number of sects of Christians of his day: "Therefore they have laid their hands boldly upon the Divine Scriptures, alleging that they have corrected them. That I am not speaking falsely of them in this matter, whoever wishes may learn. For if any one will collect their respective copies, and compare them one with another, he will find that they differ greatly. Those of Asclepiades, for example, do not agree with those of Theodotus. And many of these can be obtained, because their disciples have assiduously written the corrections, as they call them, that is the corruptions, of each of them. Again, those of Hermophilus do not agree with these, and those of Apollonides are not consistent with themselves. For you can compare those prepared by them at an earlier date with those which they corrupted later, and you will find them widely different. But how daring this offense is, it is not likely that they themselves are ignorant. For either they do not believe that the Divine Scriptures were spoken by the Holy Spirit, and thus are unbelievers, or else they think themselves wiser than the Holy Spirit, and in that case what else are they than demoniacs? For they cannot deny the commission of the crime, since the copies have been written by their own hands. For they did not receive such Scriptures from their instructors, nor can they produce any copies from which they were transcribed".

 

Under the title of Bible in the Church, the Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics writes: "In the first two centuries nearly all the various readings of the New Testament came into existence, the majority of them by deliberate alteration of the text, many for the sake of style, and several in the interests of dogma… Often readings were rejected as falsifications of heretics, but often the heretics were right in their counter-complaint… Every province, every order, every monastery, has a tradition of its own…"  If every province, every order, and every monastery in the first two centuries had their own version of the scriptures which supported their favorite doctrines of belief, then we must seriously ask the question as to what has been passed down to us today? Show me the modern Christian who promotes the idea that their beliefs are from God because they are supported by the scriptures, and I will show you believers who have failed to follow the advice of the Apostle and "Test all things".

 

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.”  

 

In the Preface to the Revised Standard Version of the bible this notable statement is made regarding the need for a revision of the English translation: "Yet the King James Version has grave defects... was based upon a Greek text that was marred by mistakes, containing the accumulated errors of fourteen centuries of manuscript copying. It was essentially the Greek text of the New Testament as edited by Beza, 1589, who closely followed that published by Erasmus, 1516-1535, which was based upon a few medieval manuscripts. The earliest and best of the eight manuscripts which Erasmus consulted was from the tenth century, and he made the least use of it because it differed most from the commonly received text; Beza had access to two manuscripts of great value dating from the fifth and sixth centuries, but he made very little use of them because they differed from the text published by Erasmus".

 

Trinity Corruptions

In the publication, The Fraternal Visitor, this assessment was made concerning the falsification of the scriptures: "Codex B (Vaticanus) would be the best of all existing MSS, …if it were completely preserved, less damaged, (less) corrected, more easily legible, and not altered by a later hand in more than two thousand places. Eusebius, therefore, is not without grounds for accusing the adherents of Athanasius and the newly-risen doctrine of the trinity of falsifying the Bible even more than once" (Fraternal Visitor 1924, p. 148; translated from Christadelphian Monatshefte).

 

Sir William Whiston in his Second letter to the Bishop of London, 1719, p. 15, further confirms that it was the so-called orthodox church which was directly responsible for all the interpolations and corruptions: "We certainly know of a greater number of interpolations and corruptions brought into the Scriptures by the Athanasians, and relating to the Doctrine of the Trinity, than in any other case whatsoever. While we have not, that I know of, any such interpolation or corruption made in any one of them by either the Eusebians or Arians."

 

 

 

 

 That the Gospels have been corrupted, an no longer reflect the original teachings was confirmed in the discover of the Dead Sea Scrolls.  And truth be told, it can easily be demonstrated that the core purpose and objectives of the original Gospel teachings are so radically different than what is preached from our pulpits today, that the Gospel of the first century would be condemned as heresy if it was presented to a modern congregation of believers.   And while the congregation of believers have been largely kept in the dark, the biblical scholars understood this fact – and this is demonstrated in the words of A. Powell Davies who stated: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).  What does it mean that the scholars acknowledge that the origin of Christianity is not what believers have been told by the Church?  It means that the religion they promote has virtually nothing in common with the teachings of Jesus -- as explored at The Original Gospel Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Modern Church Dogma http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#OriginalTeachings 

The gentile Church recreated Jesus as god-incarnate.  Whereas, Jesus taught all his disciples to fulfill the Law of God which enabled them to become Anointed/Christed, thereby enabling them to enter into the Divine Marriage with the indwelling Son of God (see Jesus Taught To Become The Christ http://TheLawOfTheGospels.com#BecomeTheChrist ). And that this was reflected with the teachings of the Essenes, is why 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 who worshiped Jesus as god-incarnate, it made all the difference in the world if the objective was for all of mankind to accomplish what Jesus did!   And when Prof. John Allegro was quoted as saying that what has been revealed in the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls is a great amount of overwhelming evidence that “...may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church.   This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers.   The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine” (August 1966 issue of Harpers Magazine).   What all the many recent archaeological discoveries have confirmed and demonstrated is that Prof. Allegro was correct in his assertion that our modern-day understanding of the source and originality of Christian doctrine” is defective.   Why?   Because neither the original teachings or the corrupted scriptures simply does not support the tenets and structure of an organized dogmatic church as we have today.
