"I worship the God of our fathers As a follower of The Way"
(Acts 24:14)

 

 

Those followers and disciples who walked and talked with Jesus daily -- the very people who he personally taught -- those followers who could ask Jesus any question -- 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 -- i.e., they affirmed that he (Jesus) "...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 when this Gospel fact is understood, it confirms the reality that the Kingdom of God is within us (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 if we use the scriptures for their intended purpose as the Key of Knowledge by turning them within our own mind, that the "narrow gate" will open unto us, and we will be able to enter into the Edenic Kingdom which is our True-Source of Being (see The Narrow Gate And The Enigma Of The Law  http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Intro ).  The original Ebionite Nazirene disciples and followers of Jesus were condemned as heretics -- portrayed as "too Jewish" to understand the meaning of the Gospel -- i.e., and they were “…rejected from one religion as apostates, and from the other as heretics” (Gibbon: Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, v.1, p.416).     Thus, the primary purpose of the Gospels has been condemned as The Ebionite Heresy http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#TheEbioniteHeresy

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 Mithraism. And while there appears on the surface to be many similarities between Mithraism and the Gospel account of Jesus, these similarities are based upon the allegorical symbols that portray the Universal Cosmology of Mind that is not at all understood by the body of faith-based believers. This is a fact: If you are a modern Christian, then the most basic and fundamental tenets of belief that you hold as truth, not only has nothing in common with the positions of the people who Jesus personally taught -- but if a believer that Jesus personally taught came to visit a modern Church, they would be labeled a heretic. Therefore the question must be posed: Was the man Jesus an incompetent teacher who was unable to clarify what is necessary for salvation? Or, was the original teachings of Jesus changed and corrupted?

Christianity Is The Vehicle Without Wheels: If you took the wheels off a car, you could still run the engine -- sit in it, listen to the radio, sleep in it, engage your sweetheart in it, and imagine you are going some place -- but without the wheels, you would remain stationary -- 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 ). 

My Brother Jesus taught: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).   Before this verse can be understood we must first understand what it means to be Whole.   Which provokes the question: How is Wholeness achieved?   Contrary to the dogma of the modern Church, if Jesus is the savior who every person needs for salvation, then Jesus himself said the Church was wrong, and those who are Whole do not need him.  And as a physician, Jesus did not come for the salvation of those who are Whole, but only for those who are sick and in need of a physician.   And in total opposition to Church dogma, what this also means is that at the time the historical man Jesus walked the face of the earth, there existed people who he portrayed as "whole [and] righteous" who did not need Jesus the physician.  Jesus openly states that his mission as a spiritual physician is not for them, because they achieved the necessary Wholeness without him. 

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 these 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. 

If this is true, the question must be asked: Was there any other early teachings that support this position of Jesus who came only to heal those who were sick and in need of a physician?  And this ultra-important teaching which is totally rejected by the Church, is further supported by a quotation of the Apostle Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement where Peter states: "For there would have been no need of Moses, or of the coming of Jesus, if of themselves they would have understood what is reasonable..."  And with respect to what is being portrayed as being reasonable to the degree that the person does not need either Moses of Jesus?  From an original Gospel perspective, the Apostle Peter is stating that those who seek to achieve Wholeness do not need either Moses or Jesus.  In total opposition to modern Church doctrine, Peter then added to the foregoing statement:  "Neither is there salvation in believing in teachers and calling them lords” (Clementine Homilies, Chap. 5, p139 Anti-Nicene Library).  Herein, what Peter is stating is that there is no salvation in merely calling upon the name of the Lord as Christians do today throughout their Churches -- but only in achieving Wholeness.   And when rightly understood, those who achieve Wholeness have brought this Condition about by doing the Will of God -- and having lived and manifest the Truth in their daily lives -- which Truth has been revealed to them directly from our Heavenly Father -- i.e., “My teaching is not My own, Jesus replied. It comes from Him who sent Me."  And then Jesus explained: "If anyone desires to do His will, he will know whether My teaching is from God or whether I speak on My own" (John 7:16-17).   What this means is that ANYONE who sincerely desires to do the Will of God, will know the Truth, and will learn the Truth directly from God -- i.e., "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God'" (John 6:45).  Therefore, in achieving the necessary Wholeness, they did not need Jesus as either a teacher, or for their salvation. 

Christians today feel confident that they have fulfilled the Gospel teachings by merely calling upon the name of Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.  They then call themselves Christians.  Yet, the most popular scripture used by the Gentile Christians in the pre-Nicene Church known as the Shepherd of Hermas, states differently where it is written:  “And the tower, I asked, what does it mean? This tower, he replied, is the Church. And these virgins, who are they? They are Holy Spirits, and men cannot otherwise be found in the kingdom of God unless these have put their clothing upon them: for if you receive the name only, and do not receive from them the clothing, they are of no advantage to you. For these virgins are the powers of the Son of God. If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name”.  The problem from a modern Christian perspective is seen in the fact that it is impossible to put on the clothing of the virgins (Holy Spirits), without first becoming Whole.  And therefore, “If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name”. Thus, if you call yourselves Christian, but fail to become Whole, “it will be in vain that you bear His name”.

The success of a physician is demonstrated in the physicians ability to heal the symptoms and disease of those who are sick.  In the case of spiritual sickness, to heal and alleviate the symptoms of the disease that has stricken the person, is to free them from the shackles of their sickness.  When Jesus portrayed those who were not sick as being "whole [and] righteous", what he stated was that mankind in his healed condition ceased to sin -- and that those who have achieved this condition of Wholeness, has brought about a condition of sinless living. 

What this demonstrates is that the vast majority of modern Christians are preaching a faux-doctrine when they portray belief in the man Jesus as being necessary for salvation.  If there were indeed people who had achieved Wholeness prior to the coming of Jesus, and therefore were not in need of a physician to heal them -- and they had achieved this Wholeness without Jesus -- and even prior to the advent of Jesus who came as a healer for those who were sick, it was noted that there would be people from every corner of the earth who would gain entrance into the Kingdom by achieving the necessary Wholeness -- i.e., "Then Jesus traveled throughout the towns and villages, teaching as He made His way toward Jerusalem. Lord, someone asked Him, will only a few people be saved? Jesus answered, Make every effort to enter through the narrow gate. For many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able.  After the master of the house gets up and shuts the door, you will stand outside knocking and saying, ‘Lord, open the door for us.’ But he will reply, ‘I do not know where you are from.’ Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’ And he will answer, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you are from. Depart from me, all you evildoers.’" (Luke 13:22-27).  The version of the foregoing in Matthew reads: "Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven" (Matt 7:21).  And what then is the "will of God"?  Thus, Jesus states:  "Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness’" (Matt 7:22-23).  What then is "lawlessness"?  Lawlessness must be understood as that mindset and actions that divides our Self and our Consciousness -- thereby inhibiting our ability to be, and achieve Wholeness.  And in the version in Luke the statement is added: "People will come from east and west and north and south, and will recline at the table in the kingdom of God" (Luke 13:29) -- and they will be able to enter into the "narrow gate" by virtue of their achieving the necessary Wholeness to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom.   Christians today feel confident that they have fulfilled the Gospel teachings by merely calling upon the name of Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.  They then call themselves Christians, while ignoring the warning that  "...‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness.’"  And then there is the statement of Jesus: "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46 KJV).  And what did Jesus teach?  He taught the necessity of doing the Will of God, and becoming Whole. 

While the real Jesus is the Truth and TheWay, the man-made image of Jesus that you have been led to believe in, is a fraud and a hoax.  Jesus did not teach his followers that he was God -- but rather, he taught his followers to transform and purify the mind and the body -- come to TheCall to the Wedding (see http://TheCall.Nazirene.org ) -- and enter into a Coverture-Union with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God (see Coverture-Marriage - Was Jesus God? http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CovertureMarriage ).  And while the Truth is at your fingertips, few people are wiling to seek the Truth and travail in TheWay that the real Jesus taught.  Why?  It is much easier and convenient for them to cling to a lie that enables them to live and think in any manner that they choose, than to make the effort to seek and live in the Light of Truth.  Ignorance -- i.e., self-ignorance -- is the shackling force that enslaves the lost prodigal sons and daughters to lifetimes of complacent suffering.  The Original Gospel teachings of TheWay was not a dogmatic belief system whereby the prodigal sons and daughters remained under the control of what is personified as the "Citizen of the Far Country" -- but rather, the Original Gospel teachings when embraced, enables the divine offspring of our Heavenly Father to be consciously restored to the Edenic Kingdom of Enlightened Light. 

 

As a prodigal son or daughter, you have been invited to come to TheCall -- and with your memory restored (see Spiritual Amnesia ), return to your Heavenly Father/Mother in the Edenic Kingdom which is your true Home and Source of Being.  Your elder brother Jesus said: "And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have one Father, and he is in heaven" (Matt 23:9).  Why?  Because God is your Father in the same exact way that God is the Father of your brother Jesus -- 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).  In the same way that the Soul of Jesus pre-existed his life in the first century, so too has your own Soul.  That you don't remember the lives your Soul has lived, is because you have been stricken  with Spiritual Amnesia.  In reality, those who you have called mother and father on earth, are your surrogate parents who were appointed to care for you during your present earthy sojourn in this, the Far Country.    That you were born blind (see Born Blind) -- and in your amnesic condition, you fail to remember when you dwelt in the Edenic Kingdom with your Heavenly Father and Mother -- is because you squandered away your divine inheritance on "riotous living", and you must begin the journey Home on your own accord by travailing in TheWay. 

To return Home, you must receive the Spiritual Baptism -- not the ritual baptism of the Church of this world.  You must put on the required "wedding garment".  If you have not, then you are dwelling in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- in a state of spiritual death -- unable to recall when you dwelt in the Edenic Kingdom.  And Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead. But as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God” (Luke 9:60) -- and this invitation into the Kingdom was made so that the believer was able to enter the Kingdom while still alive in the physical body.  In fact, if you fail to utilize the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ), and gain entrance into the Kingdom while still alive in the physical body, you will not be able to enter into Life in an after-death state. 

When Jesus portrays those who are not travailing in TheWay as being dead, he pointed out that the vast majority of people who follow the "blind guides" of this world, are immersed in the blindness of the prodigal sons and daughters who have permitted themselves to dwell under the domain of the Citizen of this, the Far Country.  Are you a brother or a sister of Jesus?   "While Jesus was still speaking to the crowds..., Someone told Him, 'Look, Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to You.' But Jesus replied, 'Who is My mother, and who are My brothers? For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother'”  (Matt 12:46-50).   Unless you have put on the required wedding garment and become healed in the Living Word and become Whole while still in the physical body, it will be impossible for you to be restored to Life as a brother or sister of Jesus -- and lacking the necessary Wholeness, it will remain impossible for you to receive the Promise of the Gospel and enter into Life.  What does this mean?  While you will not cease to exist, you will neither reincarnate as the Eastern religions believe, nor enter into the Kingdom as the Western religions believe, because without travailing in TheWay as Jesus taught, you cannot become Manifest in the Kingdom (see The Evolving Soul http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#TheEvolvingSoul ).

Do you want to be lied to?   That is not only the question set before you this day, but you will be confronted by this question when you arrive in the hereafter when your present cycle of life is completed.   Why?  Why will every person be confronted with this question when their present cycle of life has been completed?  Because it is within every person's ability to know the Truth of all Truths -- if they made the effort to seek the Truth.   Which means that if what you believe is not the Truth -- or, at best, is little more than a fragment of the truth -- then what you believe will define your life -- perhaps forever. 

Throughout the history of mankind, those who knew the Truth were condemned as heretics.   Often hunted down, tortured and slain.  In view of the fact that history perpetually repeats itself, if you are a follower of my Brother Jesus, and I convey to you the Truth, it is almost guaranteed that you will consider me an enemy of the faith -- and this conclusion will be a grave assumption on your part.  Why?  It's not that the historical man Jesus was not the Truth -- or that he did not teach the Truth -- because it is True that Jesus was the embodiment of the Truth and TheWay.   But what Jesus taught, is not at all what is being preached from the pulpits of our Churches today.

Luke 10:1 reads: "After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go."   In the same way that Jesus sent forth those who were appointed to go before him, Jesus also sent forth his faithful disciples across time to assist them to bring about the End Times, and guide sincere seekers over the past 2000 years into the Inner Kingdom.  Why was it necessary for Jesus to send forth guides across the spectrum of Time?  Because the Church would be lead astray -- as documented in a letter to Pope Leo X on September 6th, 1520, where Martin Luther wrote of the Christianity of his day, that the church, “…once the holiest of all, has become the most licentious den of thieves, the most shameless of all brothels, the kingdom of sin, death, and hell. It is so bad that even Antichrist himself, if he should come, could think of nothing to add to its wickedness” (Quoted in: The Great Thoughts; compiled by George Seldes).   Yet, as predicted by the Apostle Paul, the AntiChrist not only ruled the Church since the fourth century (see Church of the AntiChrist) -- but as Paul predicted, the AntiChrist sat on the thrown of the Church and was worshiped as God.   And with regard to Paul's assertion that these things would come to pass, the Adam Clark Commentary writes of this passage of Paul's Epistle: “[Except there come a falling away first] We have the original word apostasia in our word apostasy; and by this term we understand a dereliction of the essential principles of religious truth, either a total abandonment of Christianity itself, or such a corruption of its doctrines as renders the whole system completely inefficient to salvation. But what this apostasy means is a question which has not yet, and perhaps never will be, answered to general satisfaction” (from the Adam Clarke Commentary).   Martin Luther and the Protestant reformers who did not understand the original teachings and objectives of TheWay -- and thus, could not comprehend the reality of the warning that what was left of the Gospel teachings was "...a dereliction of the essential principles of religious truth, either a total abandonment of Christianity itself, or such a corruption of its doctrines as renders the whole system completely inefficient to salvation" -- and in many respects they further alienated the Christian Community from the original objectives of a Spiritual Religion -- the tenets of which they did not at all understand.   

Matthew 8:21-22 states: "Another of His disciples requested, Lord, first let me go and bury my father. But Jesus told him, Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”  How can the dead bury the dead?  In the same way that it is stated in the Genesis 2: 16-17 that if the fruit of the Tree of Duality is eaten, that the result will be death -- i.e., "And the LORD God commanded him: You may eat freely from every tree of the garden, but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; for in the day that you eat of it, you will surely die” -- and that the prodigal son is portrayed as being dead: "For this son of mine was dead and is alive again" (Luke 15:24) -- the death that is portrayed is a condition and state of mind.  Which means that the people of this world who are portrayed as the lost prodigal sons and daughters, are in death -- and they are being led by leaders and clergy who are themselves dead in the biblical sense of the word. 

As a servant sent to make TheCall (see TheCall To The Wedding Banquette http://TheCall.Nazirene.org ), but for you as the prodigal son/daughter to begin to be returned to Life, and  fulfill the statement: "Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom" (Matt 16:28) -- you must embrace the Original Gospels Teachings as set forth at http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com .  You can't enter into the Kingdom by following the man-made dogma of those religious leaders that are themselves in death.     

Which provokes the question: Do you want to be confronted by the Truth while you are in a position to seek knowledge and higher truth and make change to your life in accord with that Truth?  Or do you want to wait till it is too late to make change, and you are stuck with the results?  

 

 

 

Written By The Original Author Of The Gospels

In the article The Original Gospel ( http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ), I prove with supporting facts that the Gospel emerged out of the foundation of the Essenes.  I know this for a provable fact, because in that life my Soul lived as Jacob who they call James, the Brother of Yeshua who they call Jesus, and in that life I authored the Original Core Gospel that was written in Biblical Hebrew Characters (see The Original Spiritual Language Of The Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#OriginalLanguage ).  Why were the Original Gospels composed in Biblical Hebrew Characters?  Because this was and is a Living Language that can invoke a true and genuine spiritual intercession in the life of the sincere seeker -- which cannot be brought about in either the Masoretic Text used by the Jews, or the Greek, Latin or Aramaic languages used by the Gentiles.  When St. Jerome made reference to the original version of the Gospel written in Hebrew Characters, he noted that is was intended to  "...be possessed by the men most religious", meaning those who had emerged out of the Essenes, because it was too "secret" to be given into the hands of the Gentile believers. 

In that life, myself, my brother Jesus, as well as John the Baptist and other core disciples of the New Covenant movement, all emerged out of the Essenes (healers; spiritual physicians).  And as spiritual healers and physicians, we assisted seekers to overcome their inherent human blindness -- thereby restoring the memory of the lost prodigal sons and daughters (see Spiritual Amnesia ).  And we did this by assisting sincere seekers in their quest to achieve Wholeness -- i.e., "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).  The Jews were portrayed as blind guides -- i.e., "Let them alone: they are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch" (Matt 15:14) -- and they were blind because they lacked the necessary Wholeness to see beyond the shadow-images of the Outer Darkness of the organic human condition that plagues all of mankind who have yet to evolve beyond the developmental stages of mental and spiritual immaturity.  And like the Pharisees who Jesus condemned as blind guides -- i.e., "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to" (Matt 23:13 NIV), the modern Church has embrace the doctrines of spiritually disenfranchised carnal men.  But in man's quest for truth, the most important question is to understand why Jesus condemned the leaders of the Jews as blind-guide hypocrites?   Because the objective of the scriptures was to cure the condition of inherent human blindness, and enable seekers to enter the Inner Kingdom (see The Fatal Error Of The Church) -- and in their failure to use the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge that unlocks the Inner Narrow Gate that provides entrance into the Kingdom, both the Jews and the modern Christian clergy are blind guides: "They are blind guides leading the blind, and if one blind person guides another, they will both fall into a ditch" (Matt 15:14).  That those who fail to become Whole, and first enter the Inner Kingdom themselves -- and thus, remain blind guides, is why the Gospel account of Jesus states: "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? You 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" (Matt 7:4-5).  

The Gospels portray three causes of blindness (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development) -- i.e., (1) born blind because of the sins committed in that Soul's previous lives -- and having been case into The Prison, they were warned that “Thou shalt by no means come out from there, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (Mat 5:26); (2) born blind because of the sin of that Soul's parents; and (3) being born blind because of the limitations of human consciousness which is the reason why the biblical authors all attest to the fact that the faith-based baptized and committed (Christian) believers were incapable of comprehending the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings.  

It is impossible for the modern Christian to understand how a soul can be cast into the prison until which time they have "...paid [back] the uttermost farthing”, because they believe in accord with the doctrines of Roman Emperors.  In the article I prove that the Essenes, the Pharisees, and the original disciples of Jesus, all believed in the pre-existent soul that evolves to Completion and Perfection over the course of many lifetimes.  And when Jesus stated at Matthew 5:48 that "You must therefore be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect", the Soul of the man Jesus himself had achieved Wholeness and Perfection over the course of many lifetimes.   Jesus said that you must be born again to enter the Kingdom -- and in the same way that a fetus who has yet to immerge out of its mother's womb is blind to the higher reality of life in this world, this world is the secondary womb of Mother-God (see Mental Womb) -- and like the fetus prior to physical birth, all of mankind is born blind to the higher reality of their own Soul.  And the primary purpose and objective of the Original Gospels, was to bring about the necessary Wholeness that as the prodigal sons and daughters of your Heavenly Father, cures both your inherent human blindness and restores your Soul-Memory caused by the human condition of Spiritual Amnesia

In the article the Original Gospel, I prove that it was never intended for the Gospels to be read literally -- as if they are an historical account.  I demonstrate that the author's of the Gospels intentionally inserted events that did not happen and could not have happened.  I demonstrate that there is no linear or historical connection to the Jews and the Old Testament, which scriptures were authored by the Essenes and Spiritual Essenic people as an outreach program intended to assist the nomadic tribe of animal-sacrificing and heathen Jews.  And in the same way that scriptures such as the Torah was composed in order to accommodate the nomadic tribe of Jews, the copies of the Gospels that were written in Greek and other languages, were basically less spiritual copies that were given to the Gentiles as a similar outreach program by the Ebionite Nazirenes.  As the prodigal sons and daughters, your Heavenly Father desires your return to the Edenic Kingdom that you abandoned to travel into this, the Far Country.  The Original Gospels were written in order to enable you to travail in TheWay, and return to the Kingdom while you are still physically alive in the body.  In the article (Original Gospel) I reveal to the reader how to acquire an original copy of the Gospels -- how it must be used as the Key of Knowledge that has the power to transform the mind and enable you to be Anointed by the Holy Spirit -- and why the Church has been inhibiting you from possessing the Authentic Gospels. 

 

 

 

 

 


If Paul was able to predict that the Church would cease to teach and preach the Original Gospel of the New Covenant -- i.e., "...a dereliction of the essential principles of religious truth, either a total abandonment of Christianity itself, or such a corruption of its doctrines as renders the whole system completely inefficient to salvation" (quoted above from the Adam Clarke Commentary) -- then why wasn't the Original Teachings protected and preserved?  Paradoxically, the Original Gospel Teachings were both corrupted for an important reason that is not at all understood by the Congregation of believers, and the same Original Teachings were preserved and protected from any defilement by mankind and the dark forces of this world.  Thus, while the Church of this world promoted a faux-Gospel, the Spiritual Church that is within the ability of every believer to enter, has always maintained and taught the Gospel in its more Pure and Life-Giving Essence. 

The Question: Who are You? Are You A Genuine Christian Believer?  Do You Believe The Words Of God?  Or Do You Believe The Words Of Man? 

When God spoke to mankind as directly quoted in the Original Gospels, the Church of the fourth century totally rejected what God stated to mankind.  There is only one instance in the Gospels where the Voice of God spoke directly and openly to mankind, and provided the prodigal sons and daughters an ultra-important message.  But the leaders of the fourth century Church did not like what the Voice of God said, so they changed the very words spoken by God to mankind, in order to totally change the teachings of the Original Gospels.  The problem is that the Truth of the Gospel is based upon the Words spoken directly by God to mankind -- and the corrupting of the Words that God spoke directly to man has totally alienated believers from the spiritual meaning of the Gospels and the New Covenant.  Which reality provokes the question: When the leaders of the Church changed the very words that God reportedly spoke to mankind -- making them mean something totally different than their original meaning -- and then the same Church which was doctrinally ruled over by a Pagan Roman, hunted down the spiritual Christians who rejected the faux-religion of the emperor as heretics -- can modern believers then claim that they are following the Word of God?  This is the question that every Christian will be confronted with when they arrive in the hereafter.  Thus, the spiritual line has been drawn, and each Christian will be required to affirm their belief either in the Words of God, or the words of Roman Emperors and the leaders of their Churches.   And if we pose the question: How serious was the corruptions of the Gospels by the institutionalized Church?  So many important teachings were either removed or changed, that it provoked the Spiritual Christians to hide and preserve whole libraries of scriptures for when these Sacred Writings were needed to restore the teachings of the New Covenant in the future.  And in the annuls of time, the Hand of God has again moved, and that time where the Gospel can once again be openly taught has arrived.  Will you believe and embrace the Words of God?  And prove the Truth by travailing in TheWay and coming to TheCall?  Or, will you continue to embrace  the doctrines of Roman Emperors that was literally forced upon the Church by the sentence of death? 

The Message Is This: If you embrace the Words of God as set forth in the Original Gospels, and use the Gospels for their intended original purpose as the Key of Knowledge, committing your life to Living the Gospel Teachings, then you will EXPERIENCE THE TRUTH that will set you free. 

On the basis of faith-based blind belief, Christians reject the well proven and documented assertion that their Bibles have been severely corrupted (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).  As an example: Under the heading of Apostolic Fathers - Ignatius, the 1968 edition of the Britannica states: "In the 4th century (or perhaps later) his letters suffered interpolation, and six more were added by someone who found Ignatian theology hard to reconcile with the conclusions of the council of Nicaea (or of Chalcedon)".  And while Biblical scholars basically told the people the truth about the corruption of the Gospels, the truth was and remains unacceptable to the multitude of Churches.  Quoting from Examination of Modern NT Text Criticism: "Where history records that true sacred text survived this assault and is preserved in the traditional text, Westcott and Hort counter that the whole church participated in a conspiracy to fabricate a blended (and therefore corrupted) text. Westcott and Hort must not have believed the traditional Christian church to be genuine, but a sham. This thesis is supported by the biographies of Westcott and Hort. When J. F. D. Maurice was accused of false doctrine, Westcott commented that Orthodox Christians are like a new Islam persecuting a revival of the true Christians."

Why can the adoption of the corrupted scriptures be portrayed as "...a conspiracy to fabricate a blended (and therefore corrupted) text"?   Because the Roman Emperor Constantine orchestrated a massive adoption of Christianity as the Universal Religion of the Empire -- which brought about the massive conversion of Mithraic pagans into the Roman Church.   Jesus was portrayed as the latest incarnation of the Mithraic sun-god that was born on December 25 -- which is when the sun begins to move northward from the southern hemisphere.  Constantine took the most corrupt New Testament scriptures and further edited and corrupted them to make them support the dogma of Mithraism which represented the common beliefs of the people.  The original Ebionite Nazirene disciples and followers of Jesus were condemned as heretics -- portrayed as "too Jewish" to understand the meaning of the Gospel -- i.e., “…rejected from one religion as apostates, and from the other as heretics” (Gibbon: Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, v.1, p.416).    Further, the Spiritual (Gentile) Christians who understood the important purpose of the scriptures as a catalyst to develop the mind and enable the seeker/believer to begin to receive the Divine Manna of the Kingdom, were condemned as Gnostic heretics -- hunted down, their scriptures destroyed and those who did not embrace the religion of the emperor, were put to death.   Resulting in the fact that the whole foundation of the modern Church which is based upon Original Sin, has been imported from the Mithraic based teachings of the Iranian prophet Mani, in order to explain and fill the great void that the Church suppression of important teachings on the pre-existent soul created (see Original Sin).   Thereby creating a pagan foundation to the Church that has rendered Christianity spiritually impotent.  Further quoting from Examination of Modern NT Text Criticism: "Westcott and Hort must have believed that what historians recorded as a defense against heretics was in reality a suppression of the true church. They believed that what the historians recorded as heretically corrupted texts were closer to the true autographs."  And this statement is true beyond the comprehension of the modern believer.    The more pure the copy of the Gospels, the more offensive it was from the perspective of the dogma and religion of the emperor.

  The Great Lie About The Scriptures: In a total denial of the actual facts, Christians promote in the name of Jesus, the manmade dogma that was forced by secular authority upon the Church -- and today, they knowingly promote this manmade dogma regardless of the facts and the truth.  In support of the fraud perpetuated upon mankind by the Church of Rome, the faux-Christians traditionally employ the equally false dogmatic propaganda that if God permitted the Gospels to be corrupted, that people would not know what to believe.   They then utilize this same lie and denial of the very New Covent foundational reasoning, and state that if God permitted the Gospels to be corrupted, then mankind would no longer have a path to salvation.  But this empty dogmatic rhetoric can only be embraced, by a people who are spiritually disenfranchised to the degree that they have absolutely no understanding of the tenets of the New Covenant or the purpose of the Original Gospel Teachings.  

When Jesus taught that the Kingdom is within you (Luke 17:20-21), then you must seek the answers to life at the inner depths of your Consciousness in the deeper reality of your own mind.  And you do this by embracing and living your life in accord with the Original Gospel Teachings of the New Covenant.  From the perspective of the parable of the Sower and the Seed, the objective of the Gospel teaching is to bring about your physical refinement and transformation into what Jesus taught was the "good ground".  Therefore, those people who are even mildly aware of the facts, portray the dogmatic denial of the truth and the facts as a canard -- i.e., a bold face lie and deception intended to preserve and protect the man-made doctrines of the Church that has totally alienated the congregation of believers from the Truth and the Kingdom they seek.

 

  Why Would God Permit The Gospels To Be Corrupted? With respect to the statement of reality as to why God would allow the Gospels to be corrupted? 

If the Gospels had not been corrupted -- thereby making them relevant and applicable to the lives of a much greater number of people -- then this large body of people would never have been converted to a quasi-form of Christianity that they could relate to and embrace, and make spiritual gains as they began to incorporate the basic Gospel teachings into their life.  Which provokes the question: Why was it necessary to convert a large number of people to a corrupted form of the Gospel which they could embrace in their carnal condition of mind?  In order for a change in consciousness to come upon the earth while preserving mankind's choice and freewill, it was more important to convert a large number of people to a series of Gospel teachings that they could accept and embrace.   Paul did this same thing when he taught the Gentiles what he called the "traditions" of the Gospel (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ), but was unable to reveal to them the spiritual meaning of these traditions because of their mental and spiritual immaturity. 

Original Gospels Still Exist: The above could work ONLY because when the immature believers were ready, a time would come when the Original Gospel Teachings could be restored.  With the corruption of the Gospels that made them both acceptable and useable to a massively larger number of people, in the fourth century  important more pure copies of the scriptures were hidden away and preserved for those who were able to make use of them.  It was therefore the foundation of the Gospels that was necessary to -- when the time was right -- be in a position to enable a higher level of spiritual maturity to be brought about in the lives of a great number of people (see Can I Get An Original Pure Copy Of The Scriptures http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#PureCopyOfScriptures ).    Further, the same Soul who was not only present in the first century and authored the Original Core Gospels, would be able to incarnate again and restore the Original Gospel Teachings that were suppressed by the fourth century Church as has been accomplished at The Reality Of The Original Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com .  Which means that when the time was optimum, the large group of people who had been reared on what Paul portrayed as “milk intended for babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1), could then be mentally and spiritually nourished with the Divine Manna which enables them to travail on path into Life. 

 

  The Spiritual Holistic Lifestyle: The original Essene and Ebionite Nazirenes lived a Wholistic Spiritual Lifestyle 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 undertsood 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 KJV).  Unless you have fulfilled the requirement to "overcome", it is impossible for you to receive the "hidden manna" 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, they will 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).  Paul was stating that it was not a matter of teaching or instruction -- but rather, of the "natural" mind of man evolving beyond man's organic 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.  

  Corrupted Gospels Important: Why was it important for the people to embrace a corrupted form of the Gospel?  Another important fact that the Christian world has ignored to their own demise, is the witness of the biblical authors that it is impossible for the faith-based Christians who are of a Natural Organic mindset, to comprehend the true spiritual meaning of the scriptures (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ).  With Paul even warning that it was "unlawful" for him to reveal the higher reality that he witnessed -- i.e., truths "...which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor 12:2-4), to those Christians who he portrayed as being of a "natural" organic mind.  And that because it is impossible for people of ordinary human organic consciousness to understand the deeper spiritual meaning of not only the Gospels, but also the higher reality of the Soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom, it is necessary to provide the congregation of believers with a series of elementary allegorical teachings that contains important catalysts that are employed to bring about the development and transformation of the mind of the believer.  When Paul stated that he was only able to nourish the faith-based Christians with "milk", and not the "solid food" of the Spirit, the purpose of the Gospel teachings was to develop their human consciousness through the process of the deepening and expansion of their mind, in order to enable them to evolve into spiritually mature Christians who were able to be nourished by the "solid food" of the  Divine Manna of the Kingdom.  The very foundation of the New Covenant which few people understand today, conveys the reality that spiritually mature believers will not be dependent upon the written word which Paul correctly portrayed as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14) -- but rather, with the necessary spiritual maturity they will be taught directly by God -- i.e., "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God'" (John 6:45).  But this ability to learn and be taught directly by God, requires a Wholistic Spiritual mindset and lifestyle that enables the seeker to receive the "solid food" of the  Divine Manna of the Kingdom.  

  The Natural Laws - Spiritual Maturity: In the Alpha of Creation, a series of Laws was put into effect that would evolve each Soul to the Omega of Enlightened Light and Knowing -- i.e., "Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom will he make to understand the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just drawn from the breasts? For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little" (Isa 28:9-10 NKJ).    In the same way that an infant grows into a child and adult one step at a time, so too does the process of mental expansion and spiritual deepening that leads Souls to the Omega of Enlightened Light and Knowing take place, line upon line, level upon level -- until Spiritual Maturity is achieved and manifest.  Therefore, the Laws that control and evolve the consciousness of mankind, is exactly as set forth in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, that you can never possess any greater level of truth than you are desirous to live in word, thought, desire and deed -- i.e.,  “Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13 KJV) -- or, in the wording of a the modern language New Living Translation: “But if you can’t understand this story, how will you understand all the others I am going to tell?”.   And that you can never possess any greater knowledge and truth than you are desirous to live, is why it was written: "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46).  Advancement and development can only be brought about one level at a time, with change and spiritual maturity.  Therefore, while it was impossible to convert a large number of people to live the necessary Wholistic lifestyle that would enable them to be nourished by the Divine Manna that can only be received by a serious and sincere seeker of Truth, the corrupted dumbed down version of the Gospels which was promoted by the institutionalized Church was equally important, because it enabled a large number of people to embrace important lesser ("milky") concepts that could be slowly evolved as change to the mindset and lifestyle of the person was slowly brought about.  In the same way that it is demonstrated in the subheading Is The Scriptures Just Myth, that the authors of the scriptures were the Essenes who composed the Old Testament as an outreach project to assist in the development of the nomadic animal-sacrificing heathen Jews, the dumbed down Greek versions of the scriptures, as well as the corrupted Gospels of the institutionalized Church, was necessary to lay the foundation for a greater number of people to begin the process of mental and spiritual development.  

Those who ardently live the Truth in their daily lives, develop and possess the innate ability to tap directly into an Inner Source of Truth in accord with their commitment to fully embrace the level of knowledge in accord with the Truth they have received.  As a spiritual physician, Jesus stated that there were others who had achieved the necessary Wholeness -- and those who had achieved levels of Wholeness did not need him as a spiritual physician (see Wholeness of Mind & Being http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#wholeness ) -- i.e., "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).  This statement is largely ignored because Wholeness is not understood, and the statement itself is in total opposition to the primary doctrines and dogma of the modern Church.  But while it is factually true that the vast majority of Christians did not possess the spiritual maturity to comprehend the Original Gospel teachings and objectives (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ), it is also true that by embracing a corrupted Gospel, they would then be in a position to begin to develop the necessary attributes of mind to begin to be "...taught [directly] by God'".  And the fact that modern Christianity is divided by an uncountable number of sects -- each promoting a different doctrine -- demonstrates that these Christian sects continue to exist in a condition of immaturity who are yet too carnal to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospel -- i.e., "...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".  It is therefore imperative that modern believers understand Paul's words when he stated to those who he had personally taught: “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 word "discern" means to detect, to perceive, to observe -- all of which is necessary to understand.   Which is why Jesus portrayed the organic human consciousness of "natural" man as being subject to a condition of blindness and incapable of comprehending man's higher reality -- i.e., "...seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand”.  What this means is that even after Paul had personally taught the congregation of baptized believers the Gospel teachings, that if he had even attempted to convey to them the spiritual meaning of the Gospel, they would have rejected what he was even attempting to convey to them as utter "foolishness".  Why?  Because the mind or organic "natural" man is embryonic, and therefore it is too immature and undeveloped, to understand his own higher Soul and Spiritual reality.   And the primary purpose of the Gospel was to enable the believer to "overcome" organic human limitations, thereby enabling them to begin to receive "...the hidden manna" (Rev 2:17).   

Can The Original Gospel Be Restored?  What is also not known today, is the fact that when the most corrupted Gospels were further corrupted in the fourth century, the Hand of God Moved, and important measures were put into place to insure that the Original Gospel Teachings could be restored (see Can I Get An Original Pure Copy Of The Scriptures http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#PureCopyOfScriptures ).  Which means that at any time a body of sincere Christians arose who lived the necessary Wholistic Mindset and Lifestyle, they would be supplied with the necessary pure scriptures that would enable them to totally evolve to the Wholistic condition of Spiritual Maturity.  Therefore, while it was necessary to corrupt the copies of the scriptures which were used by the Institutionalized Church of Rome in order to present to them some of the elementary Gospel concepts, in that same fourth century time-frame more pure copies of the scriptures were preserved in order to serve the needs of a body of Christians who would arise in the future, and in need of the Pure Original Gospels.  The spiritual bottom line is this: Over the past 2000 years -- regardless of the condition of the Church that has for good reason been portrayed at times as diabolical -- those Christians who were sincere in their search for Truth, were always provided that Truth -- even during those times when the few who openly spoke the Truth were subject to a series of Inquisitions and hunted down as heretics -- sometimes being burnt at the stake for speaking the Truth that was suppressed by the Church political authorities (see Giordano Bruno And Spiritual Based Religion at http://ThomasPaineRedux.com#SpiritualReligion ).  Many of the copies of the more pure and uncorrupted scriptures were hidden away from the authorities of the institutionalized Church, and by using these scriptures as the Key of Knowledge (see http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ), a small body of enlightened believers always existed within the structure of the Church.  Those believers who possessed the sincerity and desire to live the necessary Consecrated Life, were always guided to one of these spiritual congregations that secretly existed within the Church.  When these spiritual groups were discovered, Inquisitions were held to hunt the Spiritual Christians down and murder them -- as they did when they burnt Giordano Bruno at the stake.

  

  The Corruption Of The Words God Spoke To Mankind: The pre-Nicene biblical texts and the earliest of Church writers prove that at the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan river, the voice of God said:  "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee"  (see http://TheTenWords.com ).  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.  In further confirmation, the Adam Clark Commentary with regard to the passage at Hebrews 1:5 which quotes the Original Words that God spoke to Mankind states that if this quotation which was used by Paul and is also confirmed in the Book of Acts is true with respect to the words spoken of Jesus by God, then “...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless".  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).   These sacred words spoken by God to mankind were not only true of our brother Jesus, but are true of all of mankind.  The objective of the Gospels is for all the prodigal sons and daughters to become a Congregation of Holy and Anointed people who are taught directly by the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.  The true followers of Jesus must turn away from the ways and thinking of this world as stated: "Therefore, Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you" (2 Cor 6:17).  Why is it important for the follower of Jesus and the New Covenant to "...be separate, [AND] ...Touch no unclean thing"?  Because the core of the New Covenant teachings was to prepare the mind of the believer to be taught directly by the One Teacher as stated: "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God'" (John 6:45 see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ).    And thus, when the Church corrupted the Words spoken directly to mankind by God, the congregation of believers were cast into a Spiritual Diaspora which they have yet to emerge out of.  

What is the evidence that the above is the true Words that God spoke to mankind?  In addition to the most ancient copies of the Gospels, this wording which reflected the original non-corrupted Words of God to Mankind is found in the writings of six (6) pre-Nicene Church Fathers who copied the statements of God into their own writings (see The Gentile Church Witness).  What this means is that what the original pre-Nicene Gospels therefore stated was that Jesus was a holy man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism in the Jordan river.  And the fact that the copies of the scriptures that were used prior to the fourth century by the Church Fathers reflect the original words of God, demonstrate that it was the Roman Emperor Constantine who was himself a Mithraic sun-worshipper, demanded that the words spoken by God to mankind be changed to make them reflect the doctrines of Mithraism (see The Emergence Of Mithraic Christianity http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#MithraicChristianity ).  Constantine believed that Jesus was the latest incarnation of the Mithraic sun-god, and that the original disciples of Jesus and the Spiritual Christians were wrong. 

In order to enable the Congregation of believers to prove and confirm that the Mithraic infused doctrines of the Church was not true, the Hand of God moved and we were provided the witness of the The Essenes And The Dead Sea Scrolls http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#Essene .  But to the spiritual demise of the faith-based modern believers, the Church has continued to totally ignored the historical facts and truths that was given unto them.  As just one example of the facts that have been confirmed, is the witness of  Prof. John Allegro who 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 -- and the doctrines of the modern Church have virtually nothing in common with the Original Gospel teachings (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ). 

Those who walked and talked daily with the man Jesus, had nothing in common with the Mithraic based doctrines of the modern Church.  Why?  Because their understanding was in perfect harmony with the Words that God spoke to mankind at Jesus' baptism in the Jordan.  Historically, those who were taught directly by the man Jesus understood that he was a Holy Man who fulfilled the Law within his own Mind and Being, and became At-One with the Indwelling Logos (aka Son of God).  In fact, the whole foundation of the New Covenat was built upon the foundation that each person by birth-right, possesses the innate ability to learn directly from the Indwelling Logos (a.k.a., Son of God).  And thus, the original disciples and followers of Jesus who walked and talked with him daily, were known as Ebionites and Nazirenes http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#Ebionite -- meaning the "poor ones" to the thinking and ways of this world who strove to fulfill the adage to be in the world and not of it.  In the same way that 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) -- and his disciples understood that Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the spiritual meaning and essence of the Law within his own mind and being -- i.e., quoting the Church writer Hippolytus on the Ebionites: that Jesus "...was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).   One of the most important elements to this original teaching was not only that Jesus was a man who became of an Enlightened Anointed Mind (Christ/Messiah) by fulfilling the Law within his own mind and being, but also that if  "...any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ" -- and this ultra-important teaching is reflective of the Words that God spoke to mankind when the man Jesus became the first of the prodigal sons to become At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God - which set the example and standard for all other prodigal sons and daughters to follow.   With respect to the Ebionites, it is documented that the mother and brothers of Jesus were Ebionites -- and because they were faithful to the words that God spoke to mankind, the historian portrays them as being “…rejected from one religion as apostates, and from the other as heretics” (Gibbon: Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, v.1, p.416).  Anyone who embraces the Original Teachings of the Gospel today, will be rejected and banned from the Churches (see The Reality Of The Original Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ).

   Jesus The Anti-Christ: The question being posed is whether the Jesus promoted by the Church as God-Incarnate is the same as the Jesus who walked the face of the earth in the first century.  When the fourth century Church changed the words spoken by God to mankind at the time when Jesus was baptized in the Jordan -- with the original words of God stating of Jesus that "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee"  -- wherein the words were replaced with "Thou are my Son, in thee I am well pleased" -- the result was that the religion associated with the Gospel teachings of Jesus became corrupted and totally man-made.   The whole purpose of the Gospel teachings as personified in the  quotation of Hippolytus which reflected the original teachings of the Ebionite Nazirene followers and disciples of Jesus that he (Jesus) was a Holy Man who "...was justified by fulfilling the Law" (see The Ebionite Nazirenes http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#Ebionite ) -- and that "...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" -- portrays the reality that ANYONE who fulfills the Law will become the Anointed Son of God.   

That the purpose of the Original Gospel teachings was a catalyst that enabled all of mankind to arise to become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Law within their own mind and being by picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay (see The Ebionite Heresey http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#TheEbioniteHeresy ), is an entirely different religious path than what is taught and embraced by the Church today.  With the corruption of the words spoken by God, all believers began to worship their brother Jesus -- thereby failing to imitate Jesus as a pattern for their own lives.  If Jesus was God incarnate as declared by the fourth century Church of Constantine, then Jesus never would have said: "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 Jesus was God, then he never could have stated to his disciples that "'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'".

That the historical Jesus was a true holy man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Royal Law within his own mind and being as declared in the quotation of Hippolytus that the original Ebionite Nazirene followers and disciples of Jesus affirmed that he (Jesus) "...was justified by fulfilling the Law" (see The Ebionite Nazirenes http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#Ebionite ), portrays an entirely different Jesus than the one promoted by the Church.  Further, the very words attributed to Jesus totally refutes the dogma of Constantine when 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).   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.  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 these 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. 

If you as a believer embrace the dogma of Constantine that all that is required of you is to believe that Jesus was God incarnate, then this man-made doctrine of belief will inhibit and even derail your spiritual progress in accord with the original Gospel teachings.  When you begin your spiritual journey under the premise that you have fulfilled the commandments of the Law by virtue of your static belief in a false portrayal of the historical man Jesus, then it will remain virtually impossible to make any spiritual progress beyond that point.   The Gospel account of Jesus declares: "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) -- and this can only be fulfilled and understood in accord with the original positions of those who walked and talked daily with the man 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).  which historical statement of fact confirms the reality that "...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".  It 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 declared by the Emperor Constantine, 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.  But even more important is the fact that if you embrace the Jesus of the Church as God incarnate, in contradistinction to the Holy Man Jesus who became the Anointed by fulfilling the Commandments of the Royal Law of God, then it will reamin impossible for you to make any spiritual progress towards imitating the pattern of Jesus and becoming the Anointed Son of God as envisioned in accord with the Original Gospel teachings (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ).

  The Removal Of The Crucial Teachings On the Pre-Existent Soul: When the Church removed the teachings on the pre-existent Soul that evolves to Wholeness and Perfection over the course of many unique lifetimes, they spiritually castrated the Gospel teachings.  Further, with the removal of this crucial teaching, it becomes impossible to understand how the man Jesus became the Anointed by fulfilling the commandments of the Law, and what each person must accomplish in their own lives to become the Anointed as their elder brother Jesus taught.  With the removal and corruption of this essential Gospel teaching, the modern Christian is totally blocked from making any real spiritual progress as envisioned in the Original Gospel Teachings.  The proof of the removal of this critical Gospel teaching can be found at The Religion Of Roman Emperors http://ChristianReincarnation.org#emperors .  And an example of the removal of an ultra-important teachings that can be proven by everyone, can be found at Turn About And Become As a Child http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#TurnAbout

What is not at all understood is the fact that the Soul of the historical man Jesus developed and evolved over the course of many lives.  To understand how and the way Jesus was able to become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ), it is necessary to understand the parable of the Talents (see Spiritual DNA And The Allotment Of Talents To The Invited Guests http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SpiritualDNA ) where it is stated: "And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability" (Matt 25:15).   The key concept here is that each person was not only entrusted with a different amount, but that each person was entrusted with an amount "...each according to his own ability."   When rightly understood within the construct of the original Gospel teachings prior to being corrupted by the Church, each person is given their lot in life in accordance with this predetermined criteria of what each soul has accomplished in their Soul's previous lives.  Further, what Jesus taught was that what the spiritually poor complacent people possessed, would even be taken away and be given to those who had an abundance: “Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away” (Matt 25:28-29 NKJ).   Likewise, if all people are born equal and the same in the eyes of God, then why in the parable of TheCall to the Wedding Banquette, some people are categorized as "invited guests", while others are not? 

All of the above provokes the question: In addition to understanding what the determining factor as to why one servant was given "one talent", another was given "two talents", while another was given "five talents", there is also the issue of why complacent believers received the greater judgment than those who were not believers.   It is therefore even more important to understand why those who can be portrayed as sinners, would not receive the same judgment and punishment as the more advanced soul.  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 complacent and lukewarm believer will be beaten with the stripes of greater judgment, than the unbeliever.  Which provokes the question: What is the fate of those who "...did commit things worthy of stripes" -- but they shall clearly receive far less judgment than those who were believers and therefore knew the masters will, but did not properly prepare themselves?  This biblical statement is not only in opposition to everything that modern Christians believe, but it remains virtually impossible for modern Christians to answer this question, because a Roman Emperor suppressed and outlawed the teaching on the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes (see The Religion Of Roman Emperors).   And that each person enters this life in accord with the past accomplishments of their soul -- i.e., "...each according to his own ability".  

How different 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.

  The Legacy Of The Circus Prostitute Who Ruled Over The Church It is a Fact of History that the modern Church adheres to the dictates of a Circus Prostitute turned political activist (see http://Ebionite.com/reincarnation.htm#circusprostitute ).  When Jesus taught about what is known as Debt and Judgment under the Law, he portrayed it as The Prison (see The Purpose Of The Natural Laws And The Prison http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#ThePrison ).  But the series of Roman Emperors who took absolute control over the Church beginning in the fourth century, suppressed the teaching and corrupted the Gospels -- imprisoning the pope until he relented to the emperor (see http://Ebionite.com/reincarnation.htm#emperor ), to erase the teachings on the Natural Law.  And because the Christian world abandoned the Original Gospel teachings (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ), they have consigned themselves to what can only be portrayed as the dungeon of spiritual ignorance. 

Without an understanding of the Causal-Factors of the Natural Laws -- and how these Laws return all thoughts and actions back to us (see The Causal Factors And The Original Gospel Teachings http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#TheCausalFactorAndTheGospel ) -- the person will remain totally ignorant of the realities of life and how they must be dealt with.  And until the Christian world begins to confront the fact that they adhere to the political philosophy of a Circus Prostitute whose emperor-husband forced his political dictates on the Church, Christianity will remain at best, incomplete and grounded in mankind's ignorance.  These historical facts have been suppressed by FaceBook and modern Christians (see https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2021/10/the-circus-prostitute-who-ruled-over.html ).  

  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 NKJ). 

It was the living of the necessary Consecrated Life that Jesus ordained, and the seeking of the Kingdom within, that enabled the historical Jesus to become the Messiah, and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God -- 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).   

It must be noted that the mother and family of Jesus were all Ebionites -- as was his brother Jacob who they call James, and was the leader of the Ebionite Community.   That Jacob/James lived a Consecrated Life from birth, is confirmed in the words where it is written of Jesus' brother by Eusebius Pamphilius regarding Jacob/James: “This apostle was consecrated from his mother’s womb. He drank neither wine nor fermented liquors, and abstained from animal food. A razor never came upon his head” [Eusebius’s Ecclesiastical History, p. 76].  St. Augustine wrote:  “St. James never ate animal food, living on seeds and vegetables, never tasting flesh or wine” [Ecclesiastical History, 2 Vols. Translated by H.J. Lawlor and J.E.L. Oulton].  In the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Gibbon notes that the teachings of Jesus was “…embraced by great numbers of the Therapeutae, or Essinians…”, and wrote that: “Le Clerc (Hist. Ecclesiast p. 477, 535) seems to have collected from Eusebius, Jerome, Epiphanius, and other writers, all the principle circumstances that relate to the Nazarenes or Ebionites. The nature of their opinions soon divided them into a stricter and milder sect; and there is some reason to conjecture that the family of Jesus remained members, at least, of the latter and more moderate party”.   The Ebionites who were totally faithful to the Original Gospel teaching, understood that the Kingdom or Second Coming can only come within the mind and body of the seeker/disciple who lives the necessary Consecrated Life in TheWay (see The End Times - Armageddon/Rapture - The Coming Of The Kingdom http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#EndTimes ).

  At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God: The people who walked and talked with the man Jesus daily, said that Jesus became the Messiah and achieved a condition of At-Onement with the Logos who is also portrayed as the Son of God, by living the necessary consecrated life and fulfilling the Royal Law of God within his own mind and being.  They also said that Jesus taught others to do the same as he did -- and as their brother, Jesus taught that not only can all of mankind accomplish all that he accomplished -- but that it is the Destiny of every Soul to fulfill the Royal Law and accomplish all that he accomplished (see The Ebionite Nazirenes http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#Ebionite ).  Therefore, all the confusion that envelops the Church in countless opinions and sects is all based upon the question: What does it mean to be At-One with the Logos/Son of God? 

This condition of At-Onement cannot be grasped by the vast majority of people who are unable to understand the process of self-transformation that is presented in the Gospels, and is in fact the very foundation of the New Covenant.  In the parable of TheCall (see http://TheCall.Nazirene.org ), the believer/disciple must prepare themselves to come to the Wedding Feast.  In the parable of the Ten Virgins, the believer/disciple is portrayed as a virgin who must enter the bridal chamber with the Bridegroom (Logos/Son of God) -- i.e., "The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut" (Matt 25:10).  The portrayal of a virgin is that of purity and undefiled by this world -- and it is used throughout scriptures as an allegorical symbol of purified and undefiled flesh and earthly nature.  In the Gospel According to the Hebrews -- often portrayed as the Original Hebrew Gospel of Matthew -- the Mother of Jesus is portrayed as the Holy Spirit.  And when the subsequent stage of non-physical birth is understood, the Virgin birth is an (allegorical) portrayal of when a disciple achieves the next stage of (non-physical) birth -- i.e., when Jesus conveyed to Nicomedus that "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God".  And when Nicomedus did not understand the threefold process of birth, Jesus then asked how Nicodemus could be called a teacher, and not know these spiritual realities: "...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?"  It is important to grasp the depth of the words that when Nicodemus did not grasp the reality of achieving the next stage of birth -- stating that a "teacher of Israel" should understand the process of the additional three subsequent stages of birth that must be brought about  -- where, Jesus replied:   Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness.  If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?" (John 3:1-12 NKJ).  These very words -- i.e., "...If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things" -- has perpetually plagued faith-based Christians who lack an understanding of the allegorical symbols and catalysts of the Gospels that are used to employ the deeper spiritual meaning that is beyond the comprehension of "natural" organic man.  Thus, the next stage of birth that Jesus told Nicodemus each person must bring about, is achieved through the refinement and purity of the flesh which enables the disciple to bring about the non-physical Virgin Birth through our Spiritual Mother, the Holy Spirit, and the Generative Power of God.  

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).  The Divine Manna or Sacred Knowledge is portrayed as the Spiritual Eucharist, and can only be received by those who put on the required Wedding Garment of Purity, and come to TheCall -- i.e., "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life" (John 6:63).   The Sacraments of the Church of this world -- i.e., baptism, the Eucharist and marriage performed by man -- are ritual observances of the flesh that at best, are incomplete without the ordination of the spirit.  Because without the Spirit, the flesh or physical, "profiteth nothing".  And while an authority in the Church may perform the ritual, the reality of the observance is dependent upon the purity of the heart and thoughts of the mind.  Yet, even those who partake of the ritual in an unpurified manner that is celebrated in the Churches as an allegorical symbol of receiving the Body and Blood of Christ, invoke judgment upon themselves.  When Paul wrote and warned that whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord -- i.e., "Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.  Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup.  For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself" (1 Cor 11:27-29) -- the question should be posed as to what constitutes a lack of discernment?  While a more exacting translation of the above is found in many of the older versions which state: "eateth and drinketh damnation to himself",  few Christians who have been taught the modern man-made doctrines of the Church, are able to understand how a baptized and confirmed Christian can eat and drink damnation and judgment for their failure to properly discern the Lord's body.    

The Gospel teachings of Jesus and the New Covenant which were originally known as TheWay -- i.e.,  "I worship the God of our fathers As a follower of The Way" (Acts 24:14 NIV) -- has specific Sacraments -- and the spiritual significance of these sacraments are not at all understood today.   In the parable of TheCall to the Wedding Feast, what is portrayed as the required "wedding garment" is in fact the sacrament of baptism.   And those who failed to put on the required "wedding garment", were cast into the "outer darkness of mind and being" -- i.e., "'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).  And it is this condition of the "outer darkness" that enslaves and inhibits the prodigal sons and daughters. How?  Among the afflictions resulting of when the prodigal son squandered away his inheritance on "riotous living", they suffer Spiritual Amnesia.  And lacking Soul-Memory, they cannot remember when they dwelt in the Edenic Kingdom prior to their journey into this, the Far Country.  But the original teachings on baptism was totally abandoned by the segment of early Gentile Church which portrayed itself as Orthodox, and it is this man-made dogma that has caused the original teachings on baptism to not only be different, but in conflict with what is practiced among Christians today.  In total rejection of the modern dogma of the Church, Paul writes that "...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).   Peter confirms the foregoing in the words: "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."  Paul again warns that those who sin after coming to the Lord "eateth and drinketh damnation to himself".   And while Christians have blindly chosen to ignore these warnings, they are confirmed in the Homilies of Clement who was the first century disciple of the Apostle Peter where Peter is quoted as stating with respect to the sacrament of Baptism: "He has commanded us to go forth to preach, and to invite you to the supper of the heavenly King, which the Father hath prepared for the marriage of His Son, and that we should give you wedding garments, that is, the grace of baptism; which whosoever obtains, as a spotless robe with which he is to enter to the supper of the King, ought to beware that it be not in any part of it stained with sin, and so he be rejected as unworthy and reprobate."   Contrary to the modern usage of the sacrament of baptism, according to Peter, once the "wedding garment" is received, if the person then willfully sins, then the wedding garment is stained, and there can be no further repentance -- i.e., you "...ought to beware that it be not in any part of it stained with sin, and so he be rejected as unworthy and reprobate."  

The most popular and accepted scripture over the first three centuries was the Shepherd of Hermas (see Shepherd), which states that once one receives the sacrament of baptism which is the "wedding garment", there is only one opportunity for repentance from any future sins -- i.e., "For he that hath received remission of sins ought no longer to sin, but to dwell in purity.  ...But I say unto you', saith he, `if after this great and holy calling any one, being tempted of the devil, shall commit sin, he hath only one (opportunity of) repentance."  While this original teaching will be rejected by the modern dogmatic Church who uses the Jesus-god of Constantine as an exemption from being required to live in accord with the Commandments and the Original Gospel Teachings, this statement in the Shepherd of Hermas is in fact confirmed by Paul in the warning: "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).   Again, in the words of Paul: "But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor" (Gal 2:17-18).  Thus, the Church's doctrine of faith apart from actions that support the faith, is a spiritual fraud.

 

  Acts 3:19 confirms the original teachings that there must first be repentance and a change of mind and lifestyle that must constitute a total repentance from sin, and the living of a life where the believer does not consciously commit any future sin -- and only then can they receive the Messiah: "Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you...".   The phrase "that he may send the Messiah" is important to understand the original sequence of steps a seeker/believer must embrace when properly translated into the English languish -- i.e., (1) when you repent; (2) then turn to God with the Whole of your heart, mind and being; (3) that your change of mind and purification from sin may be brought about; (4) and that after what is portrayed as the transformative process presented in the words "...times of refreshing may come from the Lord"  -- and it is these important steps that permit the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) of your mind ("...that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you...").  When rightly understood, this  "sending the Messiah" is a portrayal of the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) of the Mind that prepares the mind for  The End Times - Armageddon/Rapture - The Coming Of The Kingdom http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#EndTimes .  That you must receive the Anointing (Messiah/Christ), and the events that are allegorically portrayed in the End Times while you are still in the physical body, is made reference to the where it is stated: "Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom" (Matt 16:28).   In the Gospel of Thomas this transformative spiritual process in portrayed in the words: "Jesus saith, let not him who seeks cease until he finds, and when he finds he shall be astonished; astonished he shall reach the kingdom, and having reached the kingdom he will rest." And thus, only those who put on the wedding garment of purity and cease to sin, can experience the Second Coming and receive the Anointing (Messiah/Christ).  And only then can they enter into a Coverture-Union with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God as their brother Jesus did (see Coverture-Marriage - Was Jesus God? http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CovertureMarriage ).  To repent and turn to God, requires a total change of mind and lifestyle.   Those who truly accomplish this, will personally receive the Anointing (Messiah/Christ), which will open their minds and enlighten them in accord with their Spiritual Condition. 

It is of ultra importance to understand the above phrase "...that times of refreshing may come from the Lord".  What is meant by the word translated "refreshing" in the original Greek texts?  Which translation can be used as an example of the countless words that the translators can't render into English out of the Greek, because of their own gravely flawed beliefs.  And this inability to understand the original meaning because of their beliefs, is true whether the translators are committed believers, or academic critics.  Acts 3:19 presents the Original Gospel sequence of events for those believers who can be portrayed as a sincere seeker.  Those translators who are believers can't come to terms with the sequence of events because of the conflict of the beliefs they hold.  Bible scholars can't understand the sequence presented, because their exposure and knowledge to the corrupted biblical texts has rendered them unbelievers and extreme critics at best.  And this is why, in the words of A. Powell Davies: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).  And why 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).  As stated in the introduction to the book, James the Brother of Jesus: The Key to Unlocking the Secrets of early Christianity and the Dead Sea Scrolls which is a 1997 book by American archaeologist and Biblical scholar Robert Eisenman. The review of the book states of Eisenman that He is most famous for his controversial work on the Dead Sea Scrolls and the origins of Christianity.  A review of Eisenman's book reads: "James was a vegetarian, wore only linen clothing, bathed daily at dawn in cold water, and was a life-long Nazirite. In this profound and provocative work of scholarly detection, eminent biblical scholar Robert Eisenman introduces a startling theory about the identity of James—the brother of Jesus, who was almost entirely marginalized in the New Testament. Drawing on long-overlooked early Church texts and the Dead Sea Scrolls, Eisenman reveals in this groundbreaking exploration that James, not Peter, was the real successor to the movement we now call Christianity. In an argument with enormous implications, Eisenman identifies Paul as deeply compromised by Roman contacts. James is presented as not simply the leader of Christianity of his day, but the popular Jewish leader of his time, whose death triggered the Uprising against Rome—a fact that creative rewriting of early Church documents has obscured."  These historical facts and the greatly different beliefs of the original disciples and followers are documented in the first-century texts that the church has ignored and even suppressed.  And the fact that modern Christianity has virtually nothing in common with the Original Gospel Teachings is proven -- and the teachings restored at http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com .

The original Gospel teachings were of a purely spiritual nature -- and this is reflected in the Greek texts in the word translated  "refreshing" in Acts 3:19, which means "recovery of breath" -- which can also be interpreted "revival".   In the Greek language, breath is drawn from the same word translated spirit, and "revival" would portray a return to Life.  Which provokes the question: If Christian doctrine is correct, and mankind is born in Original Sin and must be redeemed (see The Folly Of Original Sin: http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#OriginalSin ), then Acts 3:19 could not portray the person who travails in TheWay as experiencing a "revival" and a RETURN to Life.  But as demonstrated in the foregoing link, the doctrine of Original Sin was drawn from Mithraism, and has no place in the Original Gospel Teachings.  To biblical scholars who have closely examined the original first-century texts and writings, in conjunction with the Dead Sea Scrolls, there is no question that the adoption of the doctrine of Original Sin had no place in the original Gospel teachings.   

With respect to the parable of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32), the son was portrayed as having existed in a state of death -- i.e., "...for this your brother was dead, and is alive; he was lost, and is found.”  Which means that prior to the prodigal son's journey into the Far Country where he squandered away his divine inheritance, the prodigal son was portrayed as Living.  Further, the translators can't properly interpret the meaning of the word "refreshing", because with the removal of important teachings in the Gospel on the pre-existent Soul, they have no understanding of the reality that when each person is born into this world, it can and is often said that they die to the Spirit -- and only by picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay as Jesus taught, can they begin the process of spiritual restoration and a return to Life.   In the case of Organic man, this process of "recovery of spirit and revival" enables the person to overcome their amnesic loss of Soul-Memory caused by their spiritual death at birth -- which spiritual death inflicts upon them Spiritual Amnesia (see Restoral Of Soul-Memory @ http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#SpiritualAmnesia ).  And it is this Spiritual Amnesia that inhibits their recall of their Soul's more distant past -- a past that brought their Soul into existence at the very dawn of Creation.  And the process of "recovery of spirit and revival" begins the restoration of  the person's recall of when they, as the prodigal son/daughter, dwelt in the Edenic Kingdom before entering into this realm that is portrayed in the parable as the Far Country and falling under the control of the Citizen of this realm.  And the restoration of Soul-Memory provides access to all the previous lives where their Soul did not achieve the necessary subsequent stages of birth (see The Foundation Of The Soul And The Threefold Self http://GospelOfThomas.Nazirene.org#84 ).  And by overcoming the division between the person you are in this world and your Eternal Soul that remains in the Kingdom and cannot manifest in the physical body, you are then able to accomplish what the historical man Jesus did by seeking a Divine Union with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God (see At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ). 

Where many English translations read as above -- i.e., "Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out..." -- the verse does not mention God in the Greek, and is rendered in other translations as "Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out...".  Which provokes the question: What is the meaning of the word translated "turn back" which means to "revert", which means "to come or go back as to a former condition".   From the perspective of the parable of the prodigal son, what is being portrayed is a return and restoration of the person's spiritual nature that was suppressed when they were born into this world as personified when the prodigal son left the Kingdom of the Father and journeyed into the Far Country.  Yet, because of their beliefs, the translators can't understand the necessity of the process of the person as the prodigal son "turning about" and returning to their original spiritual nature which is suppressed by the physical body.  Why?  Because the teaching on the Children was removed from the Gospels, the translators can't relate the term "turning about/back" with the parallel statement pertaining to the restoration as a child in the statement: “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 18:3) .  Because the original teaching on the Children taught the perfection of the Soul over the course of many lifetimes, the teaching had to be removed from the Gospels in their editing and corruption to make the Gospels support the Mithraic beliefs of the people.  The restored words of the removed and suppressed teaching on the children can be found at: Turn About And Become As a Child @ http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#TurnAbout

The facts to the foregoing corruptions of the text of the Gospels are very clearly expressed in the words of Prof. Bart D. Ehrman in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, where he warns us that: "...theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy" -- which orthodoxy was to bring the text of the Gospels into conformity with the doctrines and tenets of the Church ( see http://BibleCorruption.com ).  With the suppression and removal of the teachings on the pre-existent Soul, it became virtually impossible for the translators to render the text into English.   To their way of belief and thinking, the man Jesus was the only Messiah/Christ, and all men were born in sin and had to be redeemed.   Because Acts 3:19 is in conflict with this dogma drawn from the Mithraic beliefs of the Gentiles, some of the texts have Jesus being sent to the person in an attempt to explain what is being presented in Acts 3:19.  Because of their beliefs, they can't even begin to understand that the person must turn about and "to come or go back as to a former condition".  And they therefore could not conceive of the person being transformed, prior to the Messiah (Anointing) being sent -- i.e., "...that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you..."   

In accord with the beliefs of modern Christians, because of Augustine's imported from Mithraism doctrine of Original Sin, Jesus must be first in the succession of steps to salvation.  First there is Jesus as the only Messiah/Christ  -- then there must be repentance -- and because they refuse to translate the word Messiah or Christ into the English language, Christians  can't even begin to come to terms with what Acts 3:19 actually states -- i.e., the reality that when the person "turns about" and their suppressed spiritual nature is restored through the process of "recovery of spirit and revival" which enables the person to overcome their Spiritual Amnesia, they are then able to receive the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) from the indwelling Logos/Son of God.   What this means is that the person becomes the Anointed or Messiah or Christ.  The Bible translators can't understand what the text is stating, because they believe that the word Anointed (Messiah/Christ) only pertains to the man Jesus.  Yet, in Acts 3:19, the term Anointed (Messiah/Christ) is the last part of the equation -- wherein, their beliefs dictate that the term Messiah (Anointed) only applies to Jesus, and Jesus must come first as the reason the people repent and change their lives.  And because their beliefs inhibit them from understanding the process of spiritual restoration and birth, they add the name Jesus at the end.  And this is true as Prof. Ehrman explains -- i.e.,  "...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’".  Moreover, they did the same editing in the Epistles where Paul was portraying the person receiving and becoming the Anointed (Messiah/Christ), the scribes added the name Jesus.  The original Gospel teachings was a religion where the person travailed in TheWay to become the Anointed and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God -- and the Epistles of Paul originally taught the Gentile believers not to look to the historical man Jesus, 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 NAS).   This Spiritual 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).   And this is exactly the position of the Ebionite Nazirene disciples and followers of Jesus who walked and talked with him daily, and stated 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).  And when rightly understood, Acts 3:19 confirms the position of the Ebionite Nazirenes. 

Why would Paul state that the focus of Christians should not be upon the historical man Jesus?  Because when Paul was making reference to the Christ (Anointing), the reference wasn't to an historical man -- but rather, for the believer to develop into a Spiritually Mature Christian who becomes The Anointed.  That the religion of Paul was originally making reference to the necessity to bring about the Spiritual Anointing is clearly demonstrated in the statement: "My little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you!" (Gal 4:19).  Moreover, if a believer merely says a prayer to be born again as the modern Christians dogmatically believe, then Paul never would have portrayed himself as being in "childbirth" -- meaning that the confirmed and baptized believers had yet to achieve the next stage of birth.  Paul admits to the Corinthians that he had yet to fulfill the Gospel objective and achieve the subsequent stages of birth when he wrote: "but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified" (1 Cor 9:27) -- further stating that he had yet to achieve the necessary spiritual birth when he wrote: "Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own" (PHIL 3:8).  And the manmade dogma that Christians achieve salvation by merely accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior is rejected when Paul writes: "Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it" (1 Cor 9:24).  And this fact of man's spiritual reality is confirmed when Jesus stated: "For many are called, but few are chosen" (Matt 22:14) -- and again: "So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen" (Matt 20:16).

What Paul portrays is a process of birth that brings about the believers Anointing -- thereby making each of them a Messiah/Christ.   And what Paul was stating was that the historical man Jesus was not part of the equation -- except as a pattern to imitate.   Summarizing the Application of The Key of Knowledge (see http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ).

Jesus taught that the Kingdom is within us -- and unless you understand the scriptures as a mirror image of your own mind -- and perceive the scriptures as allegorical mental-events transpiring totally IN THE PRESENT -- then the scriptures cannot bring about their intended objective of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  Why is this important?  Because the scriptures employ catalysts that are not present in other writings, and when used properly and as intended, have the ability to connect the mind of the person with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.  In the symbols of the literal text, the scriptures present the blueprint of the mind -- and when this knowledge of the Cosmology of Mind is understood, what is personified as the 12 disciples, Jesus, the virgin birth, the resurrection, as well as all the symbols of higher consciousness that are used as catalysts in the Gospels, enable the necessary development that has the ability to manifest Wholeness within the person's own Mind and Being. The allegorical personification of Jesus in the Gospels, is a portrayal of a condition of mind and being that each believer must bring about within themselves.  And this is what is portrayed in the commandment to pick up your own cross and travail in TheWay -- i.e., “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it” (Matt 10:38-39 NKJ).  The moment you attempt to read the scriptures in the manner of the Jews -- i.e., outwardly and historically -- then you have thrown away the Key of Knowledge.  The Apostle Peter taught that there is no valid interpretation from a human perspective (see The One Teacher http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com#TheOneTeacher ) -- because without the opening of the mind ("Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures" Luke 24:45) -- organic man can only interpret the writings historically in the manner of the Pharisees.  The Gospels must be understood as taking place totally in the NOW -- i.e., as transpiring presently in your life, with no historical or outward interpretations.  In view of the fact that the Kingdom is within you -- i.e., "...the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21) -- the scriptures must be totally turned within your own mind to bring about the necessary transformation, thereby enabling the seeker to achieve the next stage of birth.  By using the Gospels as the Key of Knowledge as Jesus taught -- and thereby seeking the One Teacher who is portrayed as the True Prophet (see http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ) -- only then can the whole reality of the Soul and the spiritual meaning of the scriptures be revealed to the seeker of Higher Truth and the Kingdom.   This realm in which we are presently experiencing, is the "outer darnkness" that Jesus portrayed as a place of spiritual blindness and self-ignorance where you are presently dwelling -- i.e., "Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  For many are called, but few are chosen" (Matt 22:12-14).   Therefore, that organic man is dwelling in a realm of suppressed mental development, rendered spiritually blind, and the victim of spiritual amnesia, it will remain impossible to even begin to understand the higher reality of the Soul, the Spiritual Meaning of the Gospels and the core teachings of Christianity, without understanding the Key to Christianity that is based upon the Soul that evolves to Wholeness and Perfection over the course of many lives.  Which means that it is absolutely necessary to understand the process of "turning about" and becoming as a child (see Turn About And Become As a Child http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#TurnAbout ), in order to begin to make spiritual progress in the life you are presently living.  The fact that the essential teaching of Jesus on the process of becoming a child has been removed from the Gospels, has cast the modern believer into a diaspora of abject self-ignorance which they cannot emerge from until this core teaching on how the Soul achieves Wholeness is achieved -- i.e., "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).  That because the core essential teaching on children was removed from the scriptures, is one of the primary reasons the Original Gospel teachings have virtually nothing in common with modern Church doctrine -- i.e., which teaching is explored at http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com .  It is impossible to achieve the next stage of birth without the necessary Soul-Knowledge of the previous lives your Soul has lived (see Turn About And Become As a Child http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#TurnAbout -- AND Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SoulEvolution ).

It is written: "My People Are Destroyed For Lack Of Knowledge. Because You Have Rejected Knowledge, I Reject You..." (Hosea 4:6).  One must receive the Anointing through the Spiritual Baptism which is portrayed as the "wedding garment" -- they must come to the Table of the Lord -- and be nourished by the Divine Manna that only the Logos/Son of God can impart to the person.  Therefore, unless one receives the Spiritual Baptism that is Ordained by God (not man), they cannot receive the Spiritual Eucharist -- i.e., the Divine Manna of the Kingdom -- which can only be received by those who put on and MAINTAIN the unspotted Wedding Garment of Purity and come to TheCall, it will remain impossible for them to understand both the true meaning of the scriptures, as well as the Higher Reality of the Soul and the Kingdom of God.  In the Homilies of Clement who was the first century disciple of the Apostle Peter, Peter is quoted as stating with respect to the sacrament of Baptism: "He has commanded us to go forth to preach, and to invite you to the supper of the heavenly King, which the Father hath prepared for the marriage of His Son, and that we should give you wedding garments, that is, the grace of baptism; which whosoever obtains, as a spotless robe with which he is to enter to the supper of the King, ought to beware that it be not in any part of it stained with sin, and so he be rejected as unworthy and reprobate."  In the early pre-Nicene scripture known as the Shepherd of Hermas, which was the most popular scripture used by the early Gentile Church over the first three centuries, a reference is made to a tower, of which it is written: “And the tower, I asked, what does it mean? This tower, he replied, is the Church. And these virgins, who are they? They are Holy Spirits, and men cannot otherwise be found in the kingdom of God unless these have put their clothing upon them: for if you receive the name only, and do not receive from them the clothing, they are of no advantage to you. For these virgins are the powers of the Son of God. If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name”.   The Clothing that is made reference to, is the required "wedding garment" of spiritual purity.  And in understanding what is written, it is most important for us to be aware of the continual message found in the words: “If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name”.   Thus, if you call yourselves Christian, but fail to purify and develop your mind and body from the defilements of this world -- and do not possess the true Knowledge of the Spiritual Christ by receiving the Spiritual Eucharist directly from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God -- and have not yourselves inherited the same higher powers of mind that the Son of God promised all his followers would possess -- then “it will be in vain that you bear His name”.

Where the Church Authority Hippolytus who is quoted above portrays Jesus becoming the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Law, the relationship of a Holy Man who can be portrayed as s Spiritual Virgin who fulfills the Law within his own Mind and Being was noted by Gibbon who wrote that Jesus was portrayed by his direct followers as being 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).   Thus, when the Holy and Anointed man Jesus became At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God, he entered what in Natural Law was understood to be a Coverture Marriage Relationship -- which is founded upon the concept that woman was an integral part of the man as seen and demonstrated in our laws that predated our so-called modern times.  In Blackstone's Law Commentary, under the Common Law, Book II, Chapter XXIX, VI, marriage is described as the absolute merger of husband and wife into a single legal identity: “…By marriage, the husband and wife are one person in law... The very being or legal existence of the woman is suspended during the marriage, or at least is incorporated and consolidated into that of the husband, under whose wing, protection, and cover she performs everything; and is therefore called… a femme-covert; and her condition during her marriage is called her coverture”.  In Law, the concept of the unity of husband and wife as a single person was so complete, that a married woman was even absolved of full criminal responsibility for her own conduct: “…criminal acts committed by a woman in her husband's presence were assumed to be done under the husband's command, and he was therefore held responsible” (The Law of Domestic Relations by Homer Clark, St. Paul, Minn, West Publishing Co., 1968, p. 229). As U.S. Supreme Court Justice Black observed: “…this rule has worked out in reality to mean that though the husband and wife are one, the one is the husband” (Law, Society, and Industrial Justice by Philip Selznick, New York: Russell Sage Foundation, 1969, p. 53).  And it is this Coverture relationship that is portrayed in the 22nd saying of the Gospel of Thomas when the disciples asked about how the Kingdom is to be entered: 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."

By fulfilling the Law and restoring the duality of Adam (male) and Eve (female) and the Tree of Duality within himself (see The Restoral Of Adam And Eve http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#RestoralOfAdamEve ), the man Jesus who had achieved the purity of what can be portrayed as a Spiritual Virgin, became Anointed (Messiah/Christ), and was able to enter into a Coverture Marriage with the Logos/Son of God -- as seen in the above words of Gibbon:  "...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”  And the relationship of the man Jesus who entered into a Coverture Marriage with the Logos/Son of God, is therefore portrayed in the above words: “…By marriage (At-Onement), the husband and wife are one person in law... The very being or legal existence of the woman is suspended during the marriage, or at least is incorporated and consolidated into that of the husband, under whose wing, protection, and cover she performs everything; and is therefore called… a femme-covert; and her condition during her marriage is called her coverture”

Paul could not speak openly about the spiritual meaning of the Gospel, because "natural" organic man who dwells in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), is incapable of perceiving or understanding with any depth of mind and consciousness.  His carnal idea of God is a being that is separate from himself.  Carnal man is incapable of understanding that the person he is in this world is a three-dimensional projected image of his True-Self that is a twelve-dimensional Being of Light (see http://BeingOfLight.com ) -- and that his True-Self can be portrayed as a single Neuron in the Mind of God (Logos).     That each of us is an embryonic expression of God, is the reason why the man Jesus stated that "I can do nothing on my own" (John 5:30).  And why the man Jesus stated that "I have not spoken on My own, but the Father who sent Me has commanded Me what to say and how to say it" (John 12:49).  And further stated: "Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works" (John 14:10).  That all of mankind is connected together within the Mind of God, is openly stated:  “And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring’” (Acts 17:26-28 NKJ).  Thus, the portrayal of mankind that "For we are also His offspring’” -- and the reality that "...for in Him we live and move and have our being" must be understood that what is being portrayed in the present environment of the world in which we are presently dwelling.  

Jesus said that, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are 'gods'" (John 10:34) -- because each of us dwells in the Mind of God -- and is an expression of God.  And this is confirmed in the quotation of the Apostle Peter as quoted in the Homilies of his disciple Clement where he explains:  "...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 Peter is stating is that while the Logos exists at the core of all of mankind, (1) "...in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative"; (2) "...But He is soon found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth"; (3) the True Prophet "...deserts malevolent minds, because as a prophet He knows the thoughts of every one"

That Jesus as our elder spiritual brother is an example that is true of all of mankind, is presented in the words: “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father" (John 14:12).  This statement has perpetually plagued Christians when they are confronted with the issue of why they cannot do the works and the miracles that Jesus did?  If Jesus promised that "...whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do", then why can't Christians perform these works?  The Answer: Because they don't believe in the Jesus of the Gospels -- they believe in the Jesus of the Church that was created in the fourth century.  They interpret the Gospels in the manner of the Jews by throwing away the Key of Knowledge (see The Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ).  And because the modern Christians look outwardly for what can only be found inwardly, modern Christians cannot even be counted as believers.   Further, Jesus answered and said unto them, "Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done" (Matt 21:21) -- and this statement is true when it is turned within the mind of the believer.   

All those who put on the required "wedding garment", and come to TheCall, become nourished by the Divine Manna, and enter into a Coverture Marriage/Union with the Logos/Son of God -- thereby consciously fulfilling the statement of Jesus that "The Spirit will show you what is true. The people of this world cannot accept the Spirit, because they don't see or know him. But you know the Spirit, who is with you and will keep on living in you" (John 14:17).  When Jesus warned that "The world is unable to receive Him because it doesn't see Him or know Him" -- when those who call themselves Christians, throw away the Key of Knowledge in the manner of the Jews, and worship the Jesus-god of the Church of Constantine, then the spiritually defiled faith-based believers, cannot "know the Spirit", with defiled wedding garments, they can't enter into a Coverture Marriage/Union with the Logos/Son of God, and neither can they be drawn into the Inner Kingdom.   They therefore do not believe in the Jesus of the Gospel, and because of their unbelief, they cannot "do the works that [Jesus] did; and greater works than these [they cannot] do" -- i.e., "Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful" (Rev 21:27 NIV).  This same truth was expressed by Isaiah where it is written: "And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that Way; wicked fools will not go about on it" (Isa 35:8 NIV). And this same truth is expressed in the words of Jesus when he warned: "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14).  The "narrow way" is within you.  

   Coverture-Marriage - Was Jesus God?  As explored above: Because the man Jesus had over the course of many lifetimes achieved the Virgin Purity and Absolute Human Development necessary to enter into a Coverture-Union/Marriage with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God, it could be paradoxically stated that Jesus was God Incarnate -- but paradoxically, Jesus correctly taught that all of mankind has this same potential ability.   And it is this same invitation to fulfill the Law within one's own self -- i.e., that as stated by the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus, if  "...any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ"  -- is extended to all of mankind in the parable of TheCall to the Wedding Feast (see http://TheCall.Nazirene.org ).  

What Is Coverture?  Coverture was a set of laws that said that a married woman’s identity was “covered” by her husband’s. Under the law of coverture, a woman’s legal rights were subsumed by her husband’s when she got marriage.  Legally, a husband and wife became one person: the husband. Upon marriage, the wife gave up her separate identity under the law, and her husband in effect had complete legal and economic control over her.  If the man's name was John Smith, then the wife was known as Mrs. John Smith. 

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 of our own Mind  -- which ultimately, is God ("...for in Him we live and move and have our being") -- and we are able to put on the required Wedding Garment 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. 

The Essenes and Ebionite Nazirenes portrayed the Indwelling Logos/Word/Son of God as the True Prophet -- and in the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter is quited as stating: "...And therefore I advise not only wise men, but indeed all men who have a desire of knowing what is advantageous to them, that they seek after the True Prophet; for it is He alone who knoweth all things, and who knoweth what and how every man is seeking".   And this fact or human reality is the very core of the New Covenant Gospel Teachings -- i.e., how to tap into and learn directly from the indwelling Son of God who consciously exists at a deeper level of mind at the core of our own consciousness within us.  Peter then explains that: "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"

Peter then goes on and explains who can tap into and learn directly from the Son of God withing them when Peter  stated: 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 this means is that the purpose of the Gospel teachings and the Sermon on the Mount is not to teach the person what to believe -- but rather, to prepare them physically, mentally and spiritually to be taught by the Indwelling Logos/Word/Son of God who knows and monitors our every thought.  And in the same way that adultery can be committed with one's thoughts -- i.e., "...whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Matt 5:28) -- absolute fidelity is required to enter into a relationship with the Indwelling Logos/Word/Son of God who knows and monitors our every thought.   Which means that the Son of God portrayed in the Gospels is not the historical man Jesus -- because the Son of God is within the mind of each of us who walk the earth as a man or woman -- and it is the fidelity of each person's thoughts and actions in accord with the teachings of the Sermon on the Mount, that is the determining factor in the validity and substance of our Relationship with God.   Which provokes the question: What is the source of your beliefs?  Again, instruction is provided in the Homilies of Clement where 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?   In the same way that the believer is commanded to seek out the One Teacher, and the commandment that  "when the law of God (scriptures) is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind" -- it is being stated that there is only One Source of Truth -- and that the wisdom and teachings of man will misguide the seeker.   Why?  By design, human linear-carnal reasoning is incapable of understanding the true spiritual meaning of the scriptures -- i.e., "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind."   And neither should you listen to other men's gravely flawed interpretations of the scriptures -- i.e., "...For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".   What this means is that any teaching or interpretation of the scriptures which have been derived from an external source, is an adulterous thought that renders the person unfaithful in their relationship with the Logos/Word/Son of God.  Jesus taught that there is only one Source of Knowledge and Truth, and the disciple/seeker must learn directly from that One Teacher -- i.e, "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45).   This can only be accomplished by becoming the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower And The Seed (see  http://SowerAndTheSeed.Ebionite.com ).   And thus, these words which are representative of the New Covenant and the core Gospel teachings, are inconceivable to the modern faith-based believer who is divided and disenfranchised from the very essence and objectives of the Gospel teachings -- overwhelmed and anchored to a carnal mindset that is of the "outer darkness" -- spiritually disenfranchised by innumerable manmade opinions, factions and sects which totally alienate the believer from the Truth and the Kingdom.   

Jesus taught his followers: "If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you" (John 8:31-32 TheMessage).  Jesus didn't say that they would believe the truth -- or that they would discern what they believed would be dogmatic truth out of the scriptures or some book written by other men -- but rather, Jesus conveyed to them that if they follow in TheWay of the New Covenant that he inaugurated, that they "...will experience for yourselves the truth, ...and it is this SELF-EXPERIENCED TRUTH that...will free you" from the error and ignorance that consumes the people of this world -- and especially the blind guides who portray themselves as rabbis, teachers, clergy, religious leaders and authorities. 

If it is true that the Son of God equally dwells at the Core of each of our Minds -- confirming the teachings of Jesus that the Kingdom is within us (Luke 17:20-21) -- then why are the vast majority of people totally unaware of this Inner Consciousness that embodies the Source of all Truth and Knowledge -- to the degree that the vast majority of mankind has been portrayed as the walking dead?  As presented in the words: “Another disciple said to him, Lord, first let me go and bury my father. But Jesus told him, Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead” (Matt 8:21-22).  In Greek philosophy the term intellectually dead can be portrayed in the word "acatalepsy" -- meaning, the "inability to comprehend".   Which provokes the question as to Why the vast majority of mankind not only are rendered intellectually dead in their "inability to comprehend", but that these people are so intellectually numb  and disenfranchised that they can be portrayed as the "walking dead" who are not even aware of their True Source of Mind and Being.   What is the Causal-Factor that is responsible for that condition of mind that blocks and disenfranchises many of those who are considered experts, scholars and geniuses -- creating and maintaining an intellectual barrier between them and their own True Source of Mind and Being?   The answer is a series of Natural Laws that the Enlightened Deists of the past portrayed as the Laws of Nature and Nature's God (see The Laws From A Deist Perspective http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#ADeistPerspectiveOfTheLaws AND Understanding The Intelligent Universe - The Clock Maker vs Jalopy Universe  http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#ClockMakerUniverse ). 

That the historical man 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".   And this was attested to and witnessed by his original Ebionite Nazirene followers who waked and talked with the man Jesus when they attested to the fact that Jesus "...was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34). 

When the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples and followers of Jesus expressed the need to fulfill the Law, it was not the literal allegorical text of the Torah which is observed in outward ritual and tradition in the manner of the Jews that 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.  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 usee 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.  

Why was the Law of God presented in allegorical symbolism?  Because the Jews were afflicted with the condition of "acatalepsy" -- meaning, they lacked the "ability to comprehend".  Which means that the Jews lacked the intellectual ability to comprehend the inner reality and core-essence of their own mind.  Quoting from the Wikipedia article: For the Academic Skeptics, acatalepsy meant that human knowledge never amounts to certainty, but only to plausibility. For the Pyrrhonists it meant that knowledge was limited to the phantasiai (typically translated as "appearances," meaning a person's sensed experience) and the pathē (one's feelings). The Pyrrhonists attempted to show, while Academic Skeptics asserted, an absolute acatalepsia; all human science or knowledge, according to them, went no further than to appearances and verisimilitude.   What this means is that man's intellectual facilities are locked into the the perception of the physical senses.  In the article Science versus Scientism it is stated: "Scientism is a dogmatic ideology which presumes that 'science,' in the narrower sense of the word, has the answers to all questions. For believers in scientism the claims of metaphysics are invalid and have no bearing on reality. The physical cosmos is all there is. There is nothing but three dimensions (or four if we include time as a dimension) which are perceived with our five senses. This is all there is and this is therefore all that is worth studying."   Scientism excludes and ignores whatever is not three-dimensional and physical, and therefore inhibits man from achieving any degree of Wholeness which would enable him to achieve true Enlightenment and Knowing. 

From the perspective of the blueprint of the human mind, the indwelling Kingdom and the Logos/Word/Son of God are all at a deeper "metaphysical" level of consciousness, mind and being that Scientism regards as "invalid and have no bearing on reality."   Because of the Barrier of the Natural Laws which the original followers of Jesus attested to the fact that he overcame and fulfilled, the historical man Jesus was of an Anointed/Enlightened Mind that enabled him to enter into a Coverture-Union with the Indwelling Logos/Word/Son of God.  And this is why they portrayed Jesus as being Jesus 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).   

What this means is that because the historical man Jesus fulfilled the Law and overcame the inner barrier of mind that enabled him to connect with the Logos/Word/Son of God at the Core and Essence of his Mind and Being, that the Son of God was able to speak through him to the people.  In presenting a number of surviving quotations from the Original Hebrew Gospel, it states with respect to the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) prophets of the past in relation to Jesus where Jerome writes and quotes the Hebrew Original (Dialogue against Pelagius): "And in the same book: If thy brother (saith he) have sinned by a word and made thee amends, seven times in a day receive thou him. Simon his disciple said unto him: Seven times in a day? The Lord answered and said unto him: Yea, I say unto thee, unto seventy times seven times. For in the prophets also, after they were anointed by the Holy Spirit, the word of sin was found."  In the Old Testament twenty one people were portrayed as being Anointed -- which is of course the English translation of the Greek word Christ and the Hebrew word Messiah.  So, what then was the difference between the Anointed prophets portrayed in the Old Testament and Jesus?  Thus, until the Anointing of the historical man Jesus, no one had totally fulfilled the Law within themselves that would enable them to receive the full Anointing of the Holy Spirit.   But in the case of Jesus who had fulfilled the Law (Torah) within himself, it was said in the Hebrew Gospel where Jerome writes (On Isa. xi.2): "(The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him) not partially as in the case of other holy men: but, according to the Gospel written in the Hebrew speech, which the Nazarenes read, 'There shall descend upon him the whole fount of the Holy Spirit'. . . .In the Gospel I mentioned above, I find this written: And it came to pass when the Lord was come up out of the water, the whole fount of the Holy Spirit descended and rested upon him, and said unto him: My son, in all the prophets was I waiting for thee that thou shouldst come, and I might rest in thee. For thou art my rest, and thou art my first begotten son, that reignest for ever."     Which is why it was the original Gospel position preserved by the Ebionite Nazirenes that Jesus "...was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).   The early Church write Hippolytus then states of this original Gospel teaching that the Ebionite Nazirenes were of the position that if any other of the prodigal sons  "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs"  (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34) -- which is why Jesus commanded that his followers pick up the same (allegorical) cross as he did, and travail in TheWay. 

By fulfilling the Royal Law within his own mind and being, the historical man Jesus was able to enter into a Coverture-Union with the Indwelling Logos/Word/Son of God -- who then was able to speak through the man Jesus.  But when the Original Gospel Teachings are understood in the reality that ANYONE who fulfills the Law within them, can become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) and able to enter into a Coverture-Union with the Source of their own Mind and Being, why the reality of the Churches Replacement Theology is revealed in the portrayal of the Christian Church as being the "spawn of the devil" (see Christianity - The Devil's Spawn http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com ).  And when the modern Christian embraces the man-made dogma of Pagan Rome -- interpreting the Gospels in accord with the literal/historical allegorical text -- thereby throwing away the Key of Knowledge (see Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ) -- rejecting the words of the Apostle Peter when he warned 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" -- it remains impossible for the modern Christian to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospels. 

 

 

 

And this is why they were portrayed as "blaspheming most of the legislation", attesting to the fact that they "do not accept Moses' Pentateuch in its entirety; certain sayings they reject... stating Christ has revealed..." the allegorical meaning of the Law or Torah that must be turned within the person's own mind as the Key of Knowledge that opens the inner "narrow strait gate" of the mind -- permitting the person to begin to connect with their Inner Source of Mind and Being.  

 

 

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.   When the people questioned the source of Jesus' words, he called himself a prophet: "So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house" (Matt 13:57). And not only did he call himself a prophet, but spoke of the crucifixion as his ultimate process of perfection:  "On that very day some Pharisees came, saying to Him, Get out and depart from here, for Herod wants to kill You.  And He said to them, Go, tell that fox, 'Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.' Nevertheless I must journey today, tomorrow, and the day following; for it cannot be that a prophet should perish outside of Jerusalem" (Luke 13:31-33).   And when the man approached Jesus calling him good teacher, Jesus rejected the title stating: "So Jesus said to him, Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God" (Mark 10:18).   And when Jesus replied to the question as to how a person is to enter into life, he stated: "If you want to enter life, keep the commandments" (Matt 19:17). 

When it was recognized that the man was asking Jesus about how to achieve eternal life -- and that Jesus did not reply to believe in him (Jesus) as God -- but to keep the Law and the Commandments -- then the Ebionite position that Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Law -- and that it was necessary for Jesus' disciples and followers to in like manner fulfill the Law and keep the Commandments -- is exactly what Jesus the Anointed Prophet taught and expected of those who believed in what he taught.    Now if you add to the above the very words attributed to Jesus, we can then understand both the original Ebionite position that the followers of Jesus must keep the Law, and the profound spiritual ignorance which rejects the requirement of actions as an integral part of the equation: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.  Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:17-26 NIV).  How does the follower/disciple of Jesus both keep the Law and fulfill the requirement that, "...unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven"?  By fulfilling the Royal law within your own mind and being, and therefore becoming transformed into the Living Consecrated Temple that enters into a Coverture Marriage with the Logos/Son of God?

  The Foundation Of A Coverture-Marriage: When the Gospel account of Jesus proclaims: "So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate" (Matt 19:6) -- reference was being made of a genuine Coverture-Marriage that is ordained by God -- which has virtually nothing in common with the quasi-marriages ordained by man.  A genuine marriage is spiritual, and such a union must be in harmony and fulfill the requirements of the Laws of God as set forth at The Sacrament Of Marriage http://Sacraments.Nazirene.org#SacramentOfMarriage .   Which means that the vast majority of people who don't understand the spiritual purpose of marriage -- and have no understanding of the requirements and the Laws that must be fulfilled in a Genuine Spiritually Ordained Coverture-Marriage where the man and woman are made by God "one flesh" -- cannot be married in the Spiritual Meaning of the Sacrament of Marriage.  

While there are many religious paths, if one understands the Natural Laws, then there is also a Natural Spiritual path that all of mankind can actively initiate the Laws of Creation and Fulfill them in the Totality and Wholeness of the person's Mind and Being.  When Jesus noted that "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), there is a Natural Path imbedded in the Laws of Creation that brings about Wholeness of Mind and Being.  And if you understand the workings of the Natural Laws in a Coverture-Union, then you can apply the Laws to your Life -- which opens to you the possibility of entering into a state of Wholeness.  Sir William Blackstone, in a famous passage from the first volume of his 1765 Commentaries, described the doctrine of coverture as follows: "By marriage, the husband and wife are one person in law: that is, the very being or legal existence of the woman is suspended during the marriage, or at least is incorporated and consolidated into that of the husband: under whose wing, protection, and cover, she performs every thing; and is therefore called in our law-French a feme-covert."  In Obergefell v. Hodges, Justice Kennedy described marriage as an “institution [that] has evolved in substantial ways over time"  --  but if what has evolved inhibits the very essence and purpose of marriage itself, then the modern concept of marriage is not marriage at all -- but rather, a government ordained legal contract that has virtually nothing in common with a Genuine Marriage Union where the merger of the two is made "one" -- or spiritually restored to Absolute Oneness.   What our culture portrays as marriage, is in most instances little more than a Civil-Union that has virtually nothing in common with the transformative power of a Genuine Marriage where the two become "one flesh"    

The modern Christian cannot understand the relationship of the historical man Jesus to the Logos/Son of God (see above Coverture-Marriage), because they don't understand the Foundation of a Genuine Coverture-Marriage.  In the allegorical account of Genesis, prior to the separation of Adam and Eve, the two halves of man existed as AdamEve -- which is representative of the Wholistic Gender of the Soul of Man.   Equally important is the fact that in the separation, Eve (or Woman) is portrayed as having been drawn from the side of Adam (or Man) -- thus, Eve or Woman is the separated and/or divided half of Adam or Man.  

Our Soul or True-Self which dwells at a deeper level of Consciousness, is a Being of Light and Pure Energy and Mind, because our True-Self dwells in a twelve-dimensional realm where the polarities of Male and Female exist in balanced harmony and Oneness.   But our True-Self cannot directly manifest in this three-dimensional sub-realm.  And thus, when the Soul incarnates into this sub-realm, it is either as a male or female.   Why would the Soul incarnate in a sub-realm that only permits the incarnation to be divided across the gender-spectrum as a male or female?  Because all development is based upon experiential knowledge where opposite aspects of self have interacted with other aspects of self.      

If as Jesus taught, the Kingdom is within us -- and to enter the Kingdom we must apply the scriptures within us as the Key of Knowledge (see The Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ) --  then the only exemption to experiential knowledge based upon external interactions, is through the interactions with one's spouse who appears to be external from one's self, but is not.   In the same way that the Soul of man is the balance of the polarities of Positive/Male and Negative/Female -- which in Harmony is the Light of the Soul (see http://BeingOfLight.com ) -- Eve (Woman) was drawn from the side of Adam, indicating that their normal state is the Restoral of Adam and Even into AdamEve.   When you reunite that which had been divided, then the restored condition of Male and Female  brought into Oneness, is the foundation of a Genuine (Coverture) Marriage Union.  And thus, a Coverture-Marriage is based upon this Restored Higher Reality.  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”.   Why?  Adam is not a persons name, because it means man or mankind.  When Eve or woman is restored to the unity of their original form as AdamEve, then Adam/Man has been restored. 

Dynamic Couverture-Union: Like AdamEve in the dynamic union prior to the separation, our physical body exists in a state of duality that is functioning together as ONE.  The two halves of the brain, the two lungs, the sides of the heart, the two ovaries and testes, all have two halves that work together as One.  In the case of the Heart which is the Center of man, the one half cannot function without the other half.  In the allegorical account of Genesis, what is portrayed as the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (Tree of Duality), is actually the male and female opposite columns or polarities of the whole as manifest in the Tree of Life.  Which means that the fruit that nourishes and gives Life, is the Mental Impressions of the Male and Female columns that have been merged in Oneness.  And, from the perspective of the allegorical portrayal of the mind as presented in the Book of Genesis, the forbidden fruit thereof, is the Impressions of the separated or divided Male and Female Thoughts and Consciousness.  What is an Impression?  It is the core essence of mental movement -- as defined: "an idea, feeling, or opinion about something or someone, especially one formed without conscious thought or on the basis of little evidence."  Therefore, an impression can be understood as the root of all mental movement.  But in the same way that an embryo that evolves into a life is the product of the merger of male and female genetic essence, the same is true with respect ot the male and female columns of the Tree of Life -- wherein our mind grows, evolves and expands through the nourishment of the Impressions that we generate.  Therefore, if the Impressions of our Soul or True-Self that dwells in a higher twelve-dimensional reality is formed out of the united male/female polarities of Higher Mind -- and as three-dimensional beings that are divided and polarized across the divided polarities of either male or female, it can be stated with respect to the generation of Impressions being nourishment as food for the mind, that it can rightly be stated that the divided male or female impressions impose death to the eater thereof -- because so long as the division remains, it will remain impossible for a man or woman to be at-one with their own Soul or True-Self where the divisions of Male and Female exit in a Balanced Wholistic state of Mind and Consciousness.   Thus, the thinking and mindset of the Soul of man which dwells in a twelve-dimensional higher reality where the male and female opposites exist in a Coverture-Union of Oneness, remains incomprehensible to mankind who exists in an undeveloped and divided condition being nourished by the fruit of duality.

Where the polarities of male and female exist in oneness in the twelve-dimensional higher reality of the Soul, this NECESSARY Higher Unity and Balance of male and female cannot organically exist in a divided state in this three-dimensional sub-realm.  Because of this three-dimensional limitation, the Soul or True-Self of man cannot directly incarnate into this world.  Which provokes the question: Why does this duality and division not only exist, but is ultra-important in this sub-realm?  The answer is:  Because all growth, development and birth can only be brought about when (paradoxical) opposites interact with each other -- and this is true on all levels of our Mind and Being.    In accord with the Intelligent-Design of Creation and the Natural Laws and the Divine Pattern that is Holographically Replicated into all aspects of Creation, the divided positive/male and negative/female polarities have the innate ability to totally reunite as the male and female columns of the Tree of Life (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org) -- see also image at the right.    The male and female columns of the Tree of Life are represented in the outer left (female) and outer right (male) columns which are the divided  polarities of the Center Column.  Over the course of many unique lives, the Soul of man evolves through the experiential knowledge drawn from the interaction of the male and female opposites.  Which means that man and woman must have a means to intermittently and intimately interact with each other, in order to manifest the Center Column and be nourished by what is allegorically portrayed as the life-giving fruit of the Tree of Life -- i.e., "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).  Thereby enabling them in their divided reality to bring about the next subsequent stage of birth.  As Jesus conveyed to Nicodemus that "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God"

While man (male) retains the original pattern of male/female in his chromosomal genetics ("XY"), the "Y" male chromosome is so dominant, that the feminine "X" factor is totally suppressed.  But because woman who is genetically "XX" has the power to attach herself to her male counterpart, she has the unique ability to be a surrogate for the man's suppressed "X" genetic factor.  Thereby enabling a genuine wife to Complete and raise up her husband (see The Process Of Birth Within The Tree Of Life http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#foundation ). 

In the same way that when the male sperm and the female ovum are joined in an embryo, the Natural Laws through the interaction of the male and female genetic essence, develop and evolve into a fetus that can be born into his world.  It can therefore be stated that the sperm and ovum enter into a Coverture-Embryonic condition that is necessary for the fetus to be formed and the infant to be born.  The historical man Jesus entered into a Coverture-Union with the Indwelling Logos (aka Son of God).  And this Coverture-Union is the reason why those who Jesus personally taught stated of Jesus that: "...When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366). 

The physical body is formed when the male-sperm and female-ovum unite and form an embryo where the male and female polarities interact and form the physical body of the fetus that prepares for physical birth.  Because the Divine Pattern of Creation has been replicated into every level of Creation -- including the development of Mind and Spirit -- if you understand the physical as a pattern for the whole, you will then be able to bring about a state of Higher Consciousness.  And this is why the Church Father Origen writes with respect to the allegorical nature of the scriptures: It is sufficient however, to represent in the style of a historic narrative what is intended to convey a secret meaning in the garb of history, that those who have the capacity may work out for themselves all that relates to the subject.”   And with regard to what would otherwise be historical symbols and events that would appear to us as the knowledge of superficial episodes of the past, Origen writes: “I believe that every man must hold these things for images, under which the hidden sense lies concealed” (Origen - Huet., Prigeniana, 167 Franck, p. 142).   Students of Hebrew Mysticism will perceive that what the third-century Christian Church Father Origen wrote was no different than what is contained in the Zohar, where it states: “The narratives of the doctrine are its cloak.   The simple look only on the garment, that is upon the narrative of the doctrine; more they know not.   The instructed, however, see not merely the cloak, but what the cloak covers”.   The Jewish mystic who spends his life seeking the inner meaning of the written word that the natural mind of man is incapable of seeing, has warned: "Thus the tales related in the Torah are simply her outer garments, and woe to the man who regards that outer garb as the Torah itself, for such a man will be deprived of portion in the next world..." (the Zohar).   Peter said what appears to be historical never happened.   Paul called the literal text an allegory.   These same truths are again conveyed to us in the words of the Church Historian Eusebius: “Many were led astray by reading the allegorical contents of the scriptures literally in the method of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”.   What these symbols truly mean is perhaps best expressed by G.R.S. Mead in his celebrated work, Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, where he explained that, once properly understood, the true meaning of what is “…projected onto the screen…” of the scriptures, “…was in reality a picture of their [man’s] own minds” 

In understanding the Divine Pattern of Creation, when man and woman are born into this world, they can be seen as a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm on the next level of being that has the potential to achieve the subsequent stages of Mental and Spiritual Birth.   On the physical level, once joined into an embryo, the 23 chromosomes from the father continue to interact with the 23 chromosomes of the mother in the formation of the body of the fetus.  And this same pattern that is true on the physical, is also true on the mental and spiritual levels of development.  In order to achieve the subsequent stage of birth, the male and female polarities of mind that is manifest in the duality of man and woman, must be able to interact together in order to create a mental/spiritual embryo.  The Mind of man evolves and expands via the Impressions that act as a type of nourishment  that is necessary for the process of growth and development to take place.  In the same way that physical growth and development is based upon the merger and interaction of the chromosomes of the mother and father, all growth and development beyond organic levels of male or female levels of consciousness, must be through the interaction of the opposite polarities of male and female impressions and thoughts.  The allegorically portrayed fruit of the Tree of Duality which brings death, is the divided organic male or female impressions that are not joined to their opposite polarity.   Allegorically, in order to be nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life and bring about the next stage of birth, the divided male and female impressions must be restored to oneness.  Which means that in the case of man and woman as a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm on the subsequent level of mental-birth, there must exit an actual physical connection between the man and woman that permits the intimate interaction of the male and female impressions and thoughts.  This actual physical connection that brings about mental and spiritual advancement in this three-dimensional sub-realm, has been instituted by the Natural Laws of Creation.  Quoting from the subheading Sexual Immorality  http://SoulSelf.org#SexualImmorality : In a recent study where it was found that: "Women retain and carry living DNA from every man with whom they have sexual intercourse, according to a new study by the University of Seattle and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center" (see Study).  Further explaining: "This has very important ramifications for women. Every male you absorb spermatazoa from becomes a living part of you for life. The women autopsied in this study were elderly. Some had been carrying the living male DNA inside them for well over 50 years. Sperm is alive. It is living cells. When it is injected into you it swims and swims until it crashes headlong into a wall, and then it attaches and burrows into your flesh. If it’s in your mouth it swims and climbs into your nasal passages, inner ear, and behind your eyes. Then it digs in. It enters your blood stream and collects in your brain and spine.  Like something out of a scifi movie, it becomes a part of you and you can’t get rid of it.  We are only now beginning to understand the full power and ramifications of sexual intercourse."   

Jesus taught that the Kingdom is within you (Luke 17:20-21) -- and that the inner journey can only be brought about through the next stage of birth.  Therefore, the Journey to be united to our Higher Soul or True-Self is an inner Journey of Mind and Spirit.  The Natural Laws of Creation manifested the potential for a man and woman to overcome their inner polarity duality.  By design, the male sperm that is ejaculated into the women during sexual intercourse, which enters her blood stream and collects in her brain and spine, is designed to connect the minds of the man and woman so they can then intimately interact with their impressions and thoughts in the proper Marriage Environment, is the catalyst that has the potential to evolve the man and woman as a Cosmic Ovum and Sperm into a Spiritual Embryo which has the capacity of evolve into what would constitute a Spiritual Fetus that has the capacity to bring about the next subsequent stage of birth  (see This World As A Mental Womb http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#MentalWomb ).   

In the diagram on the left, we see the aura, or ætheric field that encompasses both the man and woman individually -- and with the merged DNA of the Man and Woman as portrayed in the image on the right, has the innate potential to form the morphic field that has the power to create a unique and individualized atmosphere which immerses the husband and wife in their own personalized threefold environment (physical, mental and spiritual), that has the capacity to manifest and join the two halves of man and woman in Oneness.   When the scriptures speak of the man and woman becoming "one flesh", there is no integration of the male and female bodies observed on a physical level.   And yet, because of the joining of the genetics of the woman and her husband,  it is the Morphic Field that is created in a Spiritual Union/Marriage that has immersed the man and woman into a Common Mental and Spiritual Atmosphere -- insulating them from the outer world, and belonging solely to them.   This inner connection permits the merger of the bio-energy that when joined, is no longer lost into nature -- but rather, is channeled within the dynamics of the union.  

One of the most important realities that organic man is blind to, is the reality of Mind.  With our physical eyes and vision, we cannot directly see Mind -- enen though the Mind surrounds the physical body in the manner of a mental-atmosphere.  Yet, the more we develop Wholeness of Mind, the more we develop the ability to perceive Mind -- becoming aware of the Mental Bodies that surround Man's physical body as a personal atmosphere.  In addition to breathing in oxygen, with each breath we polarize the body through positive and negative cycles of Mind that surround the physical body.   And as the mind of the person begins to evolve to a more mature level of consciousness, only then is the person able to begin to perceptively-observe not only the Mental-Bodies that surround each person, but also the Ætheric-Connections that connect individual groups of people together -- and especially the Morphic-Field that Unifies the opposite polarities of a man and women who enter into a Divine Marriage.  

The male sperm and DNA becomes imbedded in the woman's brain and nervous system,  in order to create an environment where the thoughts and the impressions of the opposite polarity of male and female can interact and complete each other in the development of the Higher Mind that is formed out of the Marriage Union.   When Jesus conveyed to Nicomedus that "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" -- and when Nicodemus did not understand the threefold process of birth, Jesus then asked how he could be a teacher, and not know these spiritual realities: "...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?  It is important to grasp the reality of the words that when Nicodemus did not grasp the process of achieving the next stage of birth, that Jesus replied:   Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness.  If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?" (John 3:1-12).  Thus, if the next stage of birth was brought about by saying a prayer to the Jesus-god created by the fourth century pagan Church of Rome -- or, the sinners prayer as is commonly practiced by modern Christians -- then Jesus would not have replied to Nicodemus in this manner.   He would have stated to Nicodemus that a person must say the prayer to the Messianic Lord and Savior, in order to be born again.   But he did not, because this man-made dogma had not yet been invented and propagated by faux-priests who were part of the great shadow-church of pagan Rome.  

In the same way that genetically, the embryo that forms the body when an infant is born into this world is the merger and balance of 23 pairs of chromosomes each from the mother and father, what is being presented in the words of the Gospel of Thomas -- i.e., "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..." -- is the means by which the Feminine-Intuitive and Male-Linear opposite spheres of mind that form the outer columns within the pattern of the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life must be brought into a state of Evolved Wholeness and Oneness, in order for the mind of the seeker to evolve beyond what Paul portrays as an "animal-soul" level of consciousness (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature), and for the Kingdom to come in the manner that was promised in the Gospel -- i.e.,  "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).   Which provokes the question: Overcomes what?   Overcome the division of the Tree of Duality of the person's own mind as explored in the article The Tree Of Life -- as personified in the statement: "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).  Which spiritually transformative process is personified in the words of the Gospel of Thomas: "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".  

That the later fourth century Church of Rome threw this essential knowledge away that the first-century Christian clearly understood, does not in any manner change the requirements of birth that Jesus set forth in the Gospel.   In the words of that 60’s philosopher Bob Dylan during that time of his life when he was a student of Hebrew Mysticism, when he said: "He who’s not busy being born, is busy dying"!  There are Two Ways -- i.e., what Jesus portrayed as the "narrow path" of TheWay of Life, and the "broad-way" that the vast majority of mankind walks to their own demise.   And if you fail to bring about the next stage of birth -- with the Second Coming and End Times coming within you, while you are still in the physical body -- it will be impossible to accomplish this necessary next stage of birth in the after-life when you pass from this world.   Thereby fulfilling the statement: "Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom" (Matt 16:28).  As stated 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"    Therefore, it is impossible to fulfill the requirements of the Gospels without first fulfilling the teaching of Jesus when he stated: "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."

What the foregoing crucial teaching coveys to the seeker, is the absolute need to bring man's divided realities of mind into a condition of Oneness and Wholeness -- i.e., "When you make the two one...";  The outer person we are in this world, with our inner Higher Self  -- i.e., "when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside"; the lower earthly nature and the upper spiritual nature -- i.e, "the above like the below"; are you restore the unity of Adam and Eve -- i.e., "when you make the male and the female one and the same"; with the understanding and recognition that all Duality is Male and Female -- i.e., "so that the male not be male nor the female female"; and only then can the Kingdom that organic man looks for to come upon the earth -- of that s/he will go to after this lifecycle is completed, will come as stated "...will you enter the kingdom."  The only real question to the equation of Life, is how many individual lifetimes will be required for you to bring this evolved condition about?

It is for this reason that the narrow path of TheWay is portrayed as difficult that few find -- i.e., regardless of what your pastor, minister, priest, clergy or inspired preacher tells you, if you fail to find the "narrow gate that is difficult and which leads to life, and only the very few ever find it" that permits entrance into the Kingdom within you (Luke 17:20-21) while you are still alive in the physical body, you will have walked the broad-way that is walked by the multitudes to their own self-destruction.   The Gospel of Thomas opens with the profound statement: And [Jesus} said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death."   The only way to find the meaning of the above statement with respect to overcoming the male/female columns of Duality of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, is to remerge what is allegorically personified as Adam and Eve into their original condition of Adam/Eve, and eat the Life-Giving Fruit in the Center of the Tree of Life ( http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ).   Which means that to "find the interpretation of these saying", the seeker/disciple must bring about the next stage of birth by  "making 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."  

The development of mind, spirit and the elevation of consciousness is an enduring process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  In the same way that our physical body was formed as orchestrated by the Natural Laws, so too is our Mind and Mental Bodies that surround our physical form.   With the exception that in order for the Mind to form, it most be subject to the choices we make and the exercise of freewill (see Living Bio-Feedback Organism http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#LivingBioFeedback ).  Therefore, when rightly understood, our every thought is judged by the Natural Laws. 

As we begin to deepen our consciousness, we are able to tap into our twelve-dimensional Eternal-Self that is a Being of Light -- which we are an expression of that has been projected into this three-dimensional realm.  But the process of deepening our mind requires a great amount of work on self -- i.e.,  "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22).  In the Epistle to the Corinthians Paul commands to "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5) -- but how can such a reality be achieved?  To affirm this requirement as genuine, the Gospel account of Jesus warns: "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 - see Judgment Day - Evolving To Maturity Of Mind And Being ).  Idle words can be defined as those thoughts or impressions which are not, and cannot, achieve the necessary Wholeness to manifest in the Center of the Tree of Life, and be returned of our Source of Mind and Being.   Which is why Paul tells us to "Pray without ceasing" (1Thes 5:17).   Perpetual prayer can be defined as positive thoughts of a higher expression that is able to be drawn up through the "strait gate" -- invoking the process of expansion and deepening of our Mind.

What this means is that every day is Judgment Day -- and our every thought is Judged -- with thoughts of a balanced Wholeness, passing through the "narrrow strait gate" of the Center column of the mind as patterned in the Tree of Life -- and those thoughts and impressions that lack the necessary Balanced Wholeness, being diverted into the outer columns of the Tree of Life and lost into Nature.  Therefore, it is important to understand that when the bio-energy which is the "inheritance" of the prodigal son that he squanders away on "riotous living", what is being allegorically portrayed is the loss of man's inheritance that has the capacity to enable us to enter into Higher Consciousness and Life.   The working of the Natural Laws to text each thought and impression by virtue of what is portrayed as the Law of Octaves, is explored and presented in the subheading entitled The Octave Test Through The Narrow Gate http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#OctaveTestNarrowGate .  But to understand the Law of Octaves, the beginning of the relevant subheadings is at The Application Of The Law Of Octaves And The Trinity http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#LawOfOctaves ).    

When religious teachings require sexual-purity to avoid negative connections to people other than one's spouse, it is because it becomes very difficult to even impossible to bring about the required merger of the male and female opposite polarities, when the woman is connected to men other than her husband. And Paul correctly presents the problem when he writes to the Congregation at Corinth: "Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, 'The two will become one flesh'". When Jesus said to the woman at the well that she was unable to go and get her husband because she had five husbands (John 4:18), we must be cognizant of the fact that Jesus and other spiritually advanced souls are able to see into the Ætheric (Field) dimensions of mind that surround the body that man in his natural organic condition cannot see.  What Jesus was observing when he made this statement, was the stream of vital life-force from five different men with whom the woman had sex, as a connective thought-stream entering into her.  Moreover, when Jesus told her that even the man she was with at present could not be her husband in the genuine spiritual meaning of the word, what he was conveying was that because of the polluted environment that she has permitted her body to become, she was incapable of having a genuine husband. Since on one level you stay connected to whom ever you have had sex with, there is only the exchange of low-level thought-impressions which cannot be exchanged at a higher level -- and only drive the person into confusion and meaningless carnal thinking. Thus, mentally and spiritually grounding the people to the mundane earth.  And while the more advanced the soul, the more they are able to deal with adverse body environmental conditions, in most instances even these few become warped in their perception and thinking.  In the same way that a genetic imbalance in a developing embryo creates mental impairment and conditions such as Down Syndrome, the same is true on the next higher holographic level with the bombardment of low-level thoughts from people who one has been previously sexually connected to.  In the same way that the two sides of the ear must move and resonate together, so too must husband and wife.

The Mental Birth Process is controlled and brought about by the Natural Laws.  A reality that is never mentioned by Christians is the words of Jesus with respect to the thoughts and words of a seeker where he stated: "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 what words are not considered idle?  Paul tells us to "Pray without ceasing" (1Thes 5:17).  And "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5).  Further, how can such an accounting of idle words and thoughts even be made?   Only those who understand the workings of the Royal Law -- as portrayed in the The Ebionite Heresy http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#TheEbioniteHeresy -- are able to comprehend the reality of these words that faith-based believers choose to ignore.  And even if a believer accepts the validity of the foregoing words, it is difficult to understand (1) what makes words considered Idle; (2) how idle words are discerned and judged; (3) and what is the result of idle words that are not obedient to Christ?  

The answer to the crucial questions is Wholeness of Thought that (1) passes through the testing of the Law of Octaves (see The Octaves And The Narrow Gate: http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#OctavesAndTheNarrowGate ); (2) merges and balances the Four Gates of the Mind (see The Four Gates Of The Mind http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com#TheFourGates ); (3) and advances the process of birth as presented in the teaching: "making 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".  

To understand the process of birth and the functioning of the Natural Laws which test our every thought for Wholeness -- how every thought is monitored by the Law of Octaves with respect to entering into and through the "narrow strait gate" -- it is important to recognize and understand the words of the elder son when the prodigal son returned to the Kingdom of the Father -- i.e., where the prodigal son is portrayed as having "devoured your assets with prostitutes" (Luke 15:30).  But these words can only be comprehended when it is understood that (1) mankind is intimately connected and linked to this realm; (2) that this lower earthly world is feminine in relation to the upper spiritual; (3) and the Generative Power with which the male is imbued with, is the vital life-force that is literally sucked up by the organic life of this realm.  In the same way that the vegetable kingdom is the source of the oxygen that organic life breathes and utilizes in the sustenance of life, the male generative power provides vital life-force to maintain the higher consciousness of organic life.   And in the parable of the two sons, the "riotous living" of the prodigal son was representative of the loss of this vital life-force.  Which means that when it is understood that this world is feminine in relation to the higher heavenly realities, that when the elder son portrays the squandering away of the Fathers inheritance on harlots and prostitutes, he was making reference to the loss of the Generative Power on the things of no substance and meaning in this world.      

When Eve (Woman) was separated from Adam (Man), she was portrayed as a "help-meet".  Quoting from Woman As Man's Help-Meet And Savior http://SoulSelf.org#HelpMeet : Modern science has recognized what can be called the "bonding hormone" in the form of the secretion of oxytocin when a woman hugs with a man.  "It's like a hormone of attachment, you might say," said Carol Rinkleib Ellison, a clinical psychologist in private practice in Loomis, California and former assistant clinical psychiatry professor at the University of California, San Francisco. "It creates feelings of calm and closeness" (see The Effects Of Oxytocin).    Thus, the Britannica states that "Oxytocin and its receptors also play a role in pro-social behaviours, including in social motivation, social recognition, trust, and pair-bonding" -- and hugging and close interaction, is an integral part of the pair-bonding sexual process.   In the article at Your Hormones, it states that "More recently, oxytocin has been suggested to be an important player in social behaviour.  In the brain, oxytocin acts as a chemical messenger and has been shown to be important in human behaviours including sexual arousal, recognition, trust, anxiety and mother-infant bonding. As a result, oxytocin has been called the ‘love hormone’ or ‘cuddle chemical’."   The foregoing provokes the question:  What is it that you want out of life?  Quoting from the article The Real Meaning Of Help Meet:

In Hebrew the two words that "help meet" are derived from are the words "ezer" and the word 'k’enegdo".   Ezer which is commonly translated as "help" is really a rich word with a much deeper meaning. In her book Eve and the Choice Made in Eden, Beverly Campbell explains, “According to biblical scholar David Freedman, the Hebrew word translated thee into English as “help” is ezer. This word is a combination of two roots, one meaning “to rescue”, “to save,” and the other meaning “to be strong.” Just as the roots merged into one word, so did their meanings. At first ezer meant either “to save” or “to be strong,” but in time, said Freedman, ezer “ was always interpreted as ‘to help’ a mixture of both nuances.”  Diana Webb in her book Forgotten Women of God also clarifies this word by explaining, "The noun ezer occurs 21 times in the Hebrew Bible. In eight of these instances the word means “savior”. These examples are easy to identify because they are associated with other expressions of deliverance or saving. Elsewhere in the Bible, the root ezer means “strength.... the word is most frequently used to describe how God is an ezer to man. "

From a biological-spiritual perspective, woman as personified in the allegorical account of Eve,  is man's (Adam) most immediate savior.   She not only Completes him,  but she has the unique ability to draw him up from the excesses of his positively-charged lower nature -- returning back to him the necessary impressions as a mental food on a higher plane, that brings about higher expansion and deepening of mind.   Which is why in the Spiritual Communities of the past, all contact with a young female was always chaperoned.   To the wise and spiritually enlightened men of the past, what a young woman brings to the marriage is of an immeasurable importance.   Again quoting Beverly Campbell: "Thus, it seems that through imprecise translation, our understanding of the powerful words used originally to describe Eve’s role have been diminished. As a result, our understanding or Mother Eve has also been diminished. Suppose we had all, male and female alike, been taught to understand Genesis 2:18 as something like the following, 'It is not good that man should be alone. I will make him a companion of strength and power who has a saving power and is equal with him'.”   When a woman permits herself to become attached to a number of men, this "saving power" is greatly diminished, and she can no longer fulfill her intended role.   Thus, the woman that has permitted herself to become spiritually polluted through many connections with men other than her husband, can no longer garner her feminine power that enables her to Complete and Raise Up her husband -- and in the process, Completing herself Spiritually.   A woman who is attached to other men, cannot fulfill the dynamic spiritual role of the feminine within the construct of the Laws of Creation.   And while this may appear extreme by modern cultural standards where casual and hookup sex has become a part of the recreational sex environment, the reality of life is seen in the fact that choices have consequences.  There is a reason why the Bible condemns fornication and adultery -- and not to understand that reason, is to become entrapped in a condition of spiritual ignorance.  If what Paul and the other Gospel Authors stated is true, and there exist higher realities and dimensions of being that are totally inconceivable to the mind of the undeveloped faith-based believer (see Mysteries Of The Gospel ) -- and by virtue of the immaturity of the faith-based believers brought about by an embryonic condition of mind which Paul portrayed as the "natural" mind of man -- and the limitations of this embryonic condition of mind even inhibited Jesus from conveying the true meaning of the scriptures, and the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom to all but his inner core of disciples (see In The House - Taught In Parables) -- which means that the biblical authors were therefore powerless to explain in detail many of the most important Gospel teachings and concepts in the literal text of the New Testament -- then the spiritually mature author's of the scriptures who were themselves enlightened to these higher realities, remained virtually powerless to do anything more than to provide the people with a list of do's and don'ts -- so that the faith-based believers will be in a position where they will be better able to evolve to a mature understanding and comprehension of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.  To totally ignore these do's and don'ts, without knowing the consequence of one's choices and actions, is paramount to walking out onto a freeway blindfolded.      

In the same way that the embryo which formed each persons physical body was made up of the ovum and sperm that became ONE in their mother's womb, when rightly understood this world is merely the next higher level of womb -- i.e., a mental womb. And much of this is explained at The Esoteric Feminine Mystique. That you enter this world as a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm, means that at best you are only one third of the whole -- and the purpose of sex is to connect up the two halves on this plane (man and woman) so the higher reality of the Third-Force that is formed by the joining of the two can be brought about on a higher-plane. And with the interaction of the opposites (male/female spheres of mind), this has the potential to form and manifest what can be portrayed as a morphic field where the two are not only made "one flesh", but that the higher areas of mind and being can form and evolve the relationship (see Gender Blindness And The Process Of Birth).  When the man and woman live in a Divine Union, then there is an exchange, interaction and raising up of the minds as the higher mental spheres develop and connect the person you are in this world with your higher Soul-Self.  But in order for this to happen, the man and woman must interact on all levels of their being -- as equal and united halves.  If the woman is connected to a man other than her husband, then this interaction of the spheres of mind is not possible -- and the vital life-force is lost into nature.  In the case of a man, these other women are as dependents that drain him of his vital life-force -- rather than reflect and raise him up as with a true wife.   And thus, because this necessary interaction of opposites cannot take place, the  remain flat-lined. I expanded upon this process to some degree on the Know Thyself article under the heading The Divine Pattern Of Mind And Being.

  The Coverture-Marriage And The Tree Of Life:  The only Marriage that is Genuine and Consecrated, is the marriage where the Duality of Man and Woman is made "one flesh" in a Sanctified Coverture-Marriage Union.   After eating the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (a.k.a. Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil), the statement was made in the allegorical account of Genesis: "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever" (Gen 3:22-23 -- see The Process Of Birth Within The Tree Of Life http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#foundation ).   Thus, the promise is that those who eat the fruit of the Tree of Life, will live forever.  That the Tree of Life is something that all of mankind can gain access to, and be nourished by the Divine Manna and life-giving fruit thereof, is demonstrated in the statement in the Revelation: "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).  Thus, only when our Duality is restored in Oneness and Wholeness, do we Overcome -- and only then can we be nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life.  And respecting the Tree of Life it is written: "Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" (Rev 22:1-2).   Thus, it is ultra-important to understand that the Tree of Life has twelve different kinds of fruit, as patterned in the image on the right -- which corresponds to the twelve primary spheres of Mind.  And man's great diversity and superior intellect is drawn from the fact that each of the twelve spheres of mind see and perceptively-understand all of life from a different and often opposite perspective.  And when rightly understood, the mind as portrayed in the diagram and pattern of the Tree of Life is comprised of four trinities spanning man's divided earthly and spiritual natures.   

With the division and duality of Male and Female in the outer left and right columns, all interaction between the upper heavenly and lower earthly kingdoms is controlled and brought about by the Male and Female Paradoxical Opposite Spheres of Mind.   The Thoughts and Impressions of the Male and Female Opposite Columns are portrayed as the Forbidden Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, because so long as one side of the paradoxical opposite spheres of mind dominates the other -- instead of Balancing in the Center -- lack of development and immaturity will continue to inhibit the necessary transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening that is associated with Enlightenment and the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) of the mind.   And so long at the Male and Female opposite spheres of mind fail to interact as equals, while continuing to maintain their opposite powers of perceptive-vision and paradoxical understanding, all growth and development will remain mentally and spiritually flat-lined.  In definition, a Paradox is when two seemingly opposing truths are both equally correct -- and can only be harmonized and brought into Oneness on a Higher Plane of Consciousness and Reality where the paradoxical opposites are brought together to form a Higher Truth that is beyond the comprehension of mind on the initial lower plane of consciousness where the paradoxical opposites are seen as being in conflict.    

The Connection between the Upper-Heavenly and the Lower-Earthly Kingdoms -- which are Male/Positive and Female/Negative Opposite Polarities in relation to each other -- can only be made through the Male and Female Columns of the Tree of Duality with the testing of Wholeness through the narrow strait gate by the Law of Octaves (see The Octave Test Through The Narrow Gate http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#OctaveTestNarrowGate ).  As Jesus taught: "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).  Therefore, every thought and impression that the mind of man generates, is tested for Wholeness as attested to in the statement: "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5) -- and every word is judged, as attested to in the statement: "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).  Allegorically, the testing of the thoughts and words of man is brought about by the Natural Laws that only permit Wholeness to pass through the "narrow strait gate" as portrayed in the words: "So He drove out the man and stationed cherubim to the east of the Garden of Eden, with a whirling sword of flame to guard the way to the tree of life" (Gen 3:24).  What this means is that every thought is judged for Wholeness -- and only those thoughts and impressions that are Whole and Balanced can gain passage by the "cherubim" who guard the Tree of Life with their "whirling sword of flame", are able to enter through the "narrow strait gate" and into the Center of the Tree of Life (see Entering Eden's Gate Within http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#EnteringThroughEdensGate ).

Since the upper Heavenly and the lower Earthly Kingdoms can only be brought together through the testing of the Law of Octaves through the Male and Female Columns of Tree of Knowledge, the application of that Self-Knowledge is crucial to the transformational process of achieving the necessary mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening that brings about Wholeness of Mind and Being.  Therefore, the Linear/Male and the Intuitive/Female must empathetically understand not only the weaknesses and strengths of their gender paradoxical opposites, but also their own weaknesses and strengths.  In a Divine Coverture-Marriage where the woman/wife has become a surrogate for the man's/husband's suppressed "X" feminine attributes and spheres of mind, this empathic perception of the opposite strengths and weaknesses is much easier than in a celibate non-marriage mindset and lifestyle.  Why?  The man/male who is far more Linear than his wife/female who is far more Intuitive than her husband, must understand the strengths and weaknesses of both his own mental-polarity, and the opposite polarity of his wife's/feminine mind.   The fact that man and woman see, understand and interpret all of life differently and often opposite from their paradoxical opposite gender, is the means by which all strengths and weaknesses can be merged into Wholeness.   

When Jesus said to the woman at the well that she was unable to go and get her husband because she had five husbands (John 4:18), we must be cognizant of the fact that Jesus and other spiritually advanced souls are able to see into the Ætheric (Field) dimensions of mind that surround the body that man in his natural organic condition cannot see.  What Jesus was observing when he made this statement, was the stream of vital life-force from five different men with whom the woman had sex, as a connective thought-stream entering into her.  Moreover, when Jesus told her that even the man she was with at present could not be her husband in the genuine spiritual meaning of the word, what he was conveying was that because of the polluted environment that she had permitted her body to become, she was incapable of having a genuine husband.  Since on one level a woman stays connected to whom ever she has had sex with, there is only the exchange of low-level thought-impressions which cannot be exchanged at a higher level -- and only drive the person into confusion and meaningless carnal thinking. Thus, mentally and spiritually grounding the people to the mundane earth.  And while the more advanced the soul, the more they are able to deal with adverse body environmental conditions.  In the same way that a genetic imbalance in a developing embryo creates mental impairment and conditions such as Down Syndrome, the same is true on the next higher holographic level with the bombardment of low-level thoughts from people who one has been previously sexually connected to.  In the same way that the two sides of the ear must move and resonate together, so too must husband and wife.

I previously provided the findings of a modern scientific Study which confirmed the biblical assertion that many sexual partners defile our body -- making us unfit to even  enter into a Genuine Coverture-Marriage where it was found that: "Women retain and carry living DNA from every man with whom they have sexual intercourse, according to a new study by the University of Seattle and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center" (see Study). Further explaining: "This has very important ramifications for women. Every male you absorb spermatazoa from becomes a living part of you for life. The women autopsied in this study were elderly. Some had been carrying the living male DNA inside them for well over 50 years. Sperm is alive. It is living cells. When it is injected into you it swims and swims until it crashes headlong into a wall, and then it attaches and burrows into your flesh. If it’s in your mouth it swims and climbs into your nasal passages, inner ear, and behind your eyes. Then it digs in. It enters your blood stream and collects in your brain and spine. Like something out of a scifi movie, it becomes a part of you and you can’t get rid of it. We are only now beginning to understand the full power and ramifications of sexual intercourse"

From a positive perspective, what this means is that in a genuine Coverture-Union-Marriage, the woman not only becomes part of the man -- but she becomes the opposite three-dimensions that have the power to complete the three-dimensional embodiment of the man/husband.  Thus, we see the interaction of the six dimensions of the Tree of Duality through the male and female columns that are intimately connected when the woman becomes part of the man.  Because the male DNA becomes embedded in the brain, nervous system, and even the organs of the woman, the Natural Laws makes them "one flesh" -- mentally interacting from each opposite side of what is allegorically portrayed as the Tree of Duality (Knowledge of Good and Evil).  Now in the case where the wife is not a genuine spiritual seeker -- and does not make herself part of her husband in a Coverture-Union-Marriage -- and has not been a Soul-Seeker with her husband from life to life who employs all her resources of mind and spirit to complete, interact and raise her husband up -- then there is no spiritual alchemy within the union of the man and woman.  

With respect to the Four Gates of the Mind: The ancients portrayed what constitutes the Four Gates of the Mind, Earth, Water, Fire and Air.  Quoting from Classical Elements in the Wikipedia: "Classical elements typically refer to the concepts of earth, water, air, fire, and (later) aether, which were proposed to explain the nature and complexity of all matter in terms of simpler substances. Ancient cultures in Persia, Greece, Babylonia, Japan, Tibet, and India had similar lists...".   Enlightened wise men understood that what was being portrayed, was the four gates of the mind -- with æther being Spirit.  This body of esoteric knowledge that was a part of every culture, was derived from Spirit -- portrayed as the Ætheres -- and was the manna of those who fulfilled the adage to Know Thyself.   And men of wisdom have always know that man and woman are half of each other -- as is the heavenly and the earthly.  And Higher Knowledge belongs exclusively to those who can in a balanced and wholistic manner, draw from the four gates the nourishment that enables the person to become Enlightend -- and ultimately Anointed (Messiah/Christ).  Which means that to the wise men of the past, woman was a great deal more than a sexual partner -- but rather, the other half of man who possessed mental and spiritual abilities that organic man does not.   In the subheading, The Law Of Action And Reaction  http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#AllActionsInitiateTheirOpposite , I use the image of the heart on the right, to show that the two halves of ManWoman must become, in order to enter into a Covertur-Marriage that permits their thoughts and impressions to pass by the Law of Octaves.  Quoting from the previous link: In the same way that the contraction of the two atrium chambers of the heart initiate the contraction in the ventricles of the heart, in this divided reality every action initiates a reactive-action in its opposite polarity.  Which from the higher perspective of mankind wherein the pattern of the complexity of mind is manifest in the pattern of the Tree of Life,  it means that every word, and every action you make, initiates an opposite polarity-action that MUST BE BALANCED IN THE CENTER OF THE TREE OF LIFE.  When balance and wholeness is achieved, then growth and development is brought about.  When the active and reflective opposites cannot be balanced within one's own self, then the action becomes externalized -- which in the parable of the prodigal son, is portrayed as the squandering away of the inheritance on "riotous living".   But because the loss or externalization of the bio-energy is stamped with what can be portrayed as the imprint of our Spiritual DNA, it MUST return back to us -- and this process can and does continue until Wholeness and Completion is achieved.  Only in a true Coverture-Union-Marriage to the outer male and female columns of Tree of Duality function as ONE, in the manner of a healthy heart -- thereby permitting the thoughts and impressions to enter through the "narrow strait gate" that brings about the transformational mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening of seeker.  Those few who understood the mental and spiritual dynamics of the male/female relationship, became truly Knowing and Enlightened -- while the rest merely propagated the next generation.     

The lower earthly nature of mankind is the negative polarity of the positive upper heavenly nature. But the two paradoxical male and female opposites (heavenly and earthly), can only be brought together with the proper interaction of the male and female columns of the Tree of Duality in an interactive Union of Mind. And this is very important -- i.e., in the union of the opposite polarities of man and women in the Tree of Duality, greater balanced access to the opposite polarities of the heavenly and earthly can be achieved.  When the duality of man and woman are individualized and separate, then the impressions are also polarized to either the male or female perceptive-vision and divided realities of life.  But, with the joining together in a Coverture-Marriage of the opposite polarities of Linear-Male and Intuitive-Female, the Impressions drawn from both the upper-heavenly and lower-earthly opposites, is balanced through the balance of the opposite columns of the Tree of Duality.  Which means that when you add in the three-dimensions of the upper heavenly Gate -- in relation to it's paradoxical opposite in the three-dimensions of the lower earthly Gate -- into the three-dimensions of the male Gate of the linear male spheres of mind in the husband -- into the three-dimensions of the female Gate of the Intuitive spheres of mind in the wife -- and this interaction of the Four Gates is brought about in a genuine Coverture-Union-Marriage -- what you have is the dynamic equation that with the transformative mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening, has the capacity to evolve into the manifestation of the twelve-dimensional Mind as patterned in the spheres of the Tree of Life.  And if you understand the Law of Octaves, this is how the transformational reality of the necessary mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening of the seeker is brought about in accord with Natural Law.

How important is this dynamic interaction of the four gates and the balanced impressions that nourish the mind of the seeker?  When Jesus said to the woman at the well that she was unable to go and get her husband because she had five husbands (John 4:18), we must be cognizant of the fact that Jesus and other spiritually advanced souls are able to see into the Ætheric (Field) dimensions of mind that surround the body that man in his natural organic condition cannot see.  What Jesus was observing when he made this statement, was the stream of vital life-force from five different men with whom the woman had sex, as a connective thought-stream entering into her.  Moreover, when Jesus told her that even the man she was with at present could not be her husband in the genuine spiritual meaning of the word, what he was conveying was that because of the polluted environment that she has permitted her body to become, she was incapable of having a genuine husband.  And therefore, she could not receive the Living Waters of the Spirit.  Since on one level you stay connected to whom ever you have had sex with, there is only the exchange of low-level thought-impressions which cannot be exchanged at a higher level -- and only drive the person into confusion and meaningless carnal thinking. Thus, mentally and spiritually grounding the people to the mundane earth. And while the more advanced the soul, the more they are able to deal with adverse body environmental conditions.  In the same way that a genetic imbalance in a developing embryo creates mental impairment and conditions such as Down Syndrome, the same is true on the next higher holographic level with the bombardment of low-level thoughts from people who one has been previously sexually connected to. In the same way that the two sides of the ear must move and resonate together, so too must husband and wife.

In many respects it can be said that the spouse that you choose -- in conjunction with the substance and depth of the marriage you build -- will define the success or failure of your life.   In the same way that the two halves of the heart must totally support the opposite half, so too can the same be said of one's spouse.   Your True-Self is the balance of male and female and dwells in a twelve-dimensional higher reality.   As a man or a woman who dwells in this three-dimensional sub-realm with a body that has been formed out of the lower earthly consciousness, your advancement, as well as your mental and spiritual development, will remain virtually flat-lined unless you seek Wholeness of Mind and Spirit.   By entering into a Genuine Marriage relationship, you will be presented with the opportunity of advancing by immersing your development in a six-dimensional state of consciousness.   But since marriage is no longer understood as the catalyst that brings about mental and spiritual development, few modern unions between a man and woman are able to fulfill their potential.  

What man or woman in our modern culture embraces marriage as a necessary foundation to bring about mental-development?  Who in our modern culture chooses a spouse on the basis of Higher Spiritual Manifestation?   Yet, so long as you are limited by organic male or organic female consciousness, you will remain blind and unable to comprehend man's higher Soul and Spiritual Reality.   And only by interacting with your (paradoxical ) opposites on all levels of mind and being, will you have any chance of true mental and spiritual advancement and the possibility of acquiring true Self-Knowledge.

  The foundation of the New Covenant: What is the New Covenant?  Contrary to popular belief, the New Covenant is defined in the words: “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?   But even more important is the fact that those people who believe in, and embrace, the New Covenant teachings, reject the outward rites and rituals of traditional religions, and seek to open their minds and connect to the Inner Source of Knowledge which is the spiritual objective of the New Covenant.  

  The Divine Manna - The Gospels -   With respect to the meaning of the term Divine Manna which in Greek is Gnosis, Manna can only be received directly from God.  It is not the knowledge and wisdom of man -- it 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 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 Being. What is often portrayed as esoteric teachings, is not the Divine Manna.  The esoteric teachings of man are designed to lead the seeker along the path of TheWay -- and as they evolve through the process of travailing in TheWay, the process that develops the mind begins to enable the seeker to begin to receive the Divine Manna -- which can only be imparted to the mind of the seeker in accord with that person's ability to receive it (see The Eyes Only See At The Level Of Comprehension http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#TheEyesOnlySee ).  And this is why Paul portrayed the Christians who he taught, only capable of understanding "milk" for "babes in Christ" (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ).  In the parable of the Sower and the Seed, the seeker must become the "good ground" to begin to receive the Divine Manna or Sacred Knowledge of the Kingdom. 

Why is man destroyed by a lack of Knowledge?  The verse at Hosea 4:6 isn't made in reference to knowledge that a person learns -- but the knowledge of ones Self and the associated Spiritual Knowledge that nourishes those from within.  In fact, this Spiritual Nourishment that cannot be received in the outer world -- and is the meaning of the words: "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" (Rev 22:14).  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 (see The One Teacher) -- who is the ONLY TEACHER that Jesus commanded to seek out and learn from. 

In accord with the Original Gospel Teachings, what must each person "...overcome ...to eat of the hidden manna"?   Our consciousness is monitored by the Natural Laws which will only permit us to perceive in accord with the level of our ability to comprehend.  As stated in Gospel of Thomas saying 113: His disciples said to him, "When will the kingdom come?" Jesus said, "It will not come by waiting for it. It will not be a matter of saying 'here it is' or 'there it is.' Rather, the kingdom of the father is spread out upon the earth, and men do not see it."  If the Kingdom lies before us, and we don't see it, then we must prevail over the Natural Laws that are maintaining us at our present level of comprehension.   And this is why it was said of the historical man Jesus by his original Ebionite followers and disciples that he (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).  

Jesus became the Anointed (MessiahChrist) by overcoming the Laws within his own mind.   And, the original disciples of Jesus acknowledged that "...Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ"  -- which confirms the fact that anyone who overcomes and prevails over the Natural Laws that maintain their organic level of consciousness, is able to become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) as their brother Jesus did.  It was the living of the necessary Consecrated Life that Jesus ordained, and the seeking of the Kingdom within, that enabled the historical Jesus to become the Messiah, and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God -- 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).   

In TheCall to the wedding feast (see http://TheCall.Nazirene.org ), wherein each of us is invited to the Wedding and become At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.  And whoever fulfills the Law within their own Mind, and in the manner of their elder brother Jesus becomes Anointed and At-One With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement , is then able to do and perform the works that Jesus did -- i.e., "Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father" (John 14:12).   Why can't modern Christians fulfill the promise of Jesus?  It is said of the pre-Nicene scripture the Shepherd of Hermas that it was "...the most popular books, if not the most popular book, in the Christian Church during the second, third, and fourth centuries..." -- and in the Shepherd of Hermas a reference is made to a tower, of which it is written: “And the tower, I asked, what does it mean? This tower, he replied, is the Church. And these virgins, who are they? They are Holy Spirits, and men cannot otherwise be found in the kingdom of God unless these have put their clothing upon them: for if you receive the name only, and do not receive from them the clothing, they are of no advantage to you. For these virgins are the powers of the Son of God. If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name”.   Thus, modern Christians cannot put on the robes of Christ, and therefore cannot do the predicted works of Christ, because they reject the mindset and lifestyle that is necessary to be nourished by the Divine Manna -- i.e., "...for if you receive the name only, and do not receive from them the clothing, they are of no advantage to you. For these virgins are the powers of the Son of God. If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name”.   

Thus, without the symbolism of what is portrayed as the virgins of purity in the Original Gospel teachings that were suppressed by the Church, modern Christians cannot do as Jesus did when he entered a  “...supernatural union of a man and God..." which anointed the mind of Jesus  "...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" -- which Logos/Son of God was then able to  "...inhabit his [Jesus'] mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry”   The Spiritual Baptism that is symbolically portrayed as the necessary Wedding Garment, means that anyone who prevails and overcomes the Royal Law within their own mind in the manner of Jesus their elder brother -- i.e., he (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", is able to accomplish wll that Jesus did -- as stated in the promise: "Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these".  

Modern cutting-edge science has confirmed the wisdom of the mystic, and has portrayed a reality that parallels the analogy of Plato's Cave ( Plato - The Physicist http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#Plato ).  There is one version or aspect of the analogy of Plato's Cave where  a group of prisoners succeed in escaping this realm -- i.e., (quoting Wikipedia): "If, however, we were to miraculously escape our bondage, we would find a world that we could not understand—the sun is incomprehensible for someone who has never seen it. In other words, we would encounter another 'realm', a place incomprehensible because, theoretically, it is the source of a higher reality than the one we have always known; it is the realm of pure Form, pure fact".   And unless we are prepared to evolve our mind beyond its present embryonic limitations, we will remain a prisoner in a world of shadow-images and self-ignorance -- unable to deal with "...the realm of pure Form, pure fact".  

Which provokes the question: If Plato's Cave represents the reality of mankind as a prisoner who is only able to see shadow-images that have been cast by a higher UNSEEN REALITY that is incomprehensible to the mind of organic man, then how do we eventually escape this shadow-world and enter the Higher Reality of the Source-Light.   

In the same way that a fetus develops level upon level in order to be born and emerge out of the physical-womb, mankind who is born in this world as a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm must merge into a Cosmic-Embryo.  In a mental womb we develop by living out our choices and exercise of freewill.  And herein lies the problem as seen in the fact that because we don't understand the rules to the game of life, it remains impossible to mentally advance and  achieve the next stage of birth that would enable us to exist outside the present mental-womb (see Stages Of Birth http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com#StagesOfBirth ).  And in not knowing the rules to the life that we are presently living, it remains virtually impossible to developmentally evolve out of our embryonic condition of mind and human consciousness.  Thus, the problem is seen in the reality that the erroneous beliefs that mankind clings to, act as defects that inhibit the (mental) birth process -- thereby having the effect of a mental miscarriage that flat-lines our growth and birth-process.

 

 

What this means is that mainstream religion, modern academia, our culture and the vast majority of philosophical schools of thought, all base their teachings upon the empty-mind foundational paradigm of thinking -- which is in total opposition to the New Covenant scriptures and the wisdom of the wise and enlightened ancients.   And when rightly understood, modern faith-based believers fail to understand the very foundation of the scriptures they promote, because they fail to understand even the nature and purpose of the Gospels.   The word EDUCATE: is derived from the Latin, “educare,” and it means “to draw out that which lies within.”   Yet, because we are totally ignorant of what can be portrayed as the Cosmology of Mind and Being, we attempt to educate by using rote programming on the young minds of students -- thereby inflicting almost irreversible harm when we suppress and atrophie those areas of mind that are necessary to develop in order to tap into the Inner Source of Knowledge within us -- at the Core of our Mind and Being.  Further, our system of education inhibits religious people from understanding and embracing the core New Covenant teachings -- inhibiting them from receiving the Divine Manna that is essential in fulfilling the very purpose of the life that we are presently living. 

What does it mean in the above statement: “I will put my laws in their minds..."?  How are the Laws put into the mind of the people?   The Ebionite Nazirenes were the original followers and disciples of the man Jesus -- i.e., and this is seen in the fact that the early Church Authority Epiphanius writes that the name Ebionite "...was at first ...a common name for all Christians".    Which means that if you were a follower of the man Jesus, then you were known as an Ebionite -- i.e., which means "poor one" -- portraying those who are "poor" to the ways and thinking of this world.   Why was it necessary to be a "poor one" to the ways and thinking of this world?  Because the thinking, mindset and lifestyle of this world is in opposition to the New Covenant and the development of a person's ability to tap into the Inner Source of Knowledge that exists at the core of our Mind and being.  Thus, the term Ebionite does not portray a group or a sect -- but rather, a condition and state of mind and consciousness.   Why the term Ebionite?  In confirmation of this historical fact that the original followers and disciples who were known as Ebionites and rejected the name Christian, the New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge confirms that the name Christian "originated outside of Christian and Jewish circles". The Mercer Dictionary of the Bible states that: "By the late first and early second centuries the name ‘Christian,’ which early believers avoided using of themselves, was beginning to be accepted".  Which provokes the question: Why did the original followers of Jesus "avoid using [the name Christian] of themselves"?  That the initiates of the ancient mystery religions were called Christians prior to the time of Jesus is demonstrated in a letter from the Emperor Adrian to Servianus, written in 134 A.D., wherein it is stated: "Egypt, which you commended to me, my dearest Servianus, I have found to be wholly fickle and inconsistent, and continually wafted about by every breath of fame. The worshipers of Serapis are called Christians, and those who are devoted to the god Serapis, call themselves Bishops of Christ".  The inner core of the initiates of Mithraism were called Christians.   And what is confirmed is that, with the advent of Jesus, the Christ or Christos was not a new term, and there were people throughout the empire who were called Christians prior to the time when the name came to be associated with the followers of Jesus.  Quoting from Chrestos in Pagan Antiquity: "In reality, the term 'Chrestos' or χρηστὸς has been used in association with a plethora of people and gods, beginning centuries before the common era. Chrestos and its plural chrestoi were utilized to describe deities, oracles, philosophers, priests, oligarchs, 'valuable citizens,' slaves, heroes, the deceased and others. Importantly, chrestos appears to have been the title of 'perfected saints' in various mystery schools or brotherhoods, associated with oracular activity in particular."  Archaeologists have demonstrated that the word Christos, which we render Christ, has been found not only on Pagan temples, and used in relation to those who were said to be the sons of the Pagan gods, but the term was also engraved on tombstones and other Pagan artifacts prior to the time of Jesus.

What few Christians realize today is that during the second century the gospel of Luke was put though an extensive rewrite in order to obscure certain teachings of Jesus and create an anti-Jewish environment. Under the heading of Marcion (c.100-160) in the Encyclopedia Britannica we read that he was the “founder of a Christian sect, born in Sinope, Pontus (now Sinop, Turkey), and probably the son of the bishop of that city. He went to Rome about 140”, where he was for a time received as orthodox in his beliefs. The Britannica then goes on to write that “The Marcionite sect, ...grew rapidly until it was second in strength only to the original church; it had churches and an episcopal hierarchy and practiced the sacraments of baptism and the Eucharist… Marcion rejected the Old Testament and almost all of the New Testament… basing his teachings on ten of the Epistles of St. Paul and on an altered version of the Gospel of Luke… Marcionism flourished in the West until about the 4th century…”.  From this anti-Jewish sentiment grew what is known as Replacement Theology where it was taught that, because of the rejection of Christ by the Jews, the Gentile Church was the replacement Church of God.   A very large number of pagan Christians believed that Jesus was in fact the latest incarnation of Mithra, the sun-god, who was born on Dec. 25 and resurrected on the celebration of Ishtar (Easter), the mood goddess.  And the Ebionite Nazirenes were portrayed as too Jewish to understand the teachings of Jesus.  With the rejection of the Gospels with the exception of an edited version of Luke, and a reliance on the Epistles of Paul who was himself a Mithraic Initiate (see http://Ebionite.com/Paul.htm ), the Church that arose in much of the Gentile world was basically a strain of Mithraism that used corrupted Gospels to support its worship of the Jesus-god which the Gentiles created in accord with their pagan beliefs (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).    

The problem that arose was seen in the fact that the New Covenant foundational teachings were not based upon the the dogmatic-paradigm of the Mystery Religions that utilized the name Christos or Christian.   And even more important, though, is the fact that the Gentile converts brought their ideas and beliefs pertaining to the common usage of the word Christ, into the religion of Jesus -- which Gospel teachings in their original form possessed an essence and spiritual reality that few of these Pagan Christians could comprehend. 

It is important to understand what set the Ebionite Nazirenes of the New Covenant apart from both the Jews and the initiates of the Mystery Religions who were called Christians.  The pre-Nicene Church writer Hippolytus states on the Ebionite position that Jesus "...was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely."    What is being stated in the foregoing position of the Ebionites on how Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ), is the portrayal of fulfilling the Law within his own mind and being.   And only when we understand the workings and purpose of the Laws, are we then able to understand why the biblical authors openly stated that the organic (human) mind of man was incapable of comprehending his own higher Soul-Reality.   The historical man Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Laws that Creator-God imbued the mind of man with.  That this is true of all of mankind, is presented in the words of Hippolytus following the foregoing where he states of the original Ebionite disciples and followers of Jesus that they held the position that, "...Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).  What this means is that if a modern Christian ws to understand and fulfill the Law within his own Mind and Being, that he would become like his elder brother Jesus. 

Contrary to modern Christian rhetoric, there is a requirement as seen in Paul's words with respect to fulfilling the Law: For when Gentiles who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law to themselves” (Rom 2:14).   And this spiritual reality of the New Covenant that all of mankind has these Laws imprinted in their minds, and inscribed upon the core essence of their consciousness, is further portrayed by Paul in the words: For the truth about God is known to them instinctively; God has put this knowledge in their hearts” (Rom 1:19).  The term "instinctively" denotes the ability of the Gentiles who Paul spoke of, as well as all of mankind, to intuitively draw upon the Inner Source of Truth and Knowledge, because  "...God has put this knowledge in their hearts”.   When we use the word intuitive, we are making reference to an inner source of knowing.  Thus, when rightly understood, the Gospel teachings of the New Covenant represented the fulfillment of the words: "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me" (John 6:45 NKJ).   And it was for this reason that Jesus commanded his disciples not to be called teacher or rabbi -- i.e., "But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have One Teacher, and you are all brethren" (Matt 23:8).  

  The One Teacher: Jesus commanded his disciples and followers to have One Teacher: "But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have One Teacher, and you are all brethren" (Matt 23:8 RSV).   With respect to learning ONLY FROM THE TRUE PROPHET, Peter warned Clement: Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth".  And with respect to this ONE TEACHER that they were commanded to seek out exclusively, in the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter is quoted in stating that the One Teacher who they portrayed as the True Prophet, is within the mind of all mankind -- at the Core of our Consciousness.  Thus, Peter is quoted as stating: "...And therefore I advise not only wise men, but indeed all men who have a desire of knowing what is advantageous to them, that they seek after the True Prophet; for it is He alone who knoweth all things, and who knoweth what and how every man is seeking. For he is within the mind of every one of us, but in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative; but He works in those who seek after that which is profitable to their souls, and kindles in them the light of knowledge. Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other. But He is soon found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth, and whose souls are not taken possession of by wickedness. For He is present with those who desire Him in the innocence of their spirits, who bear patiently, and draw sighs from the bottom of their hearts through love of the truth; but He deserts malevolent minds, because as a prophet He knows the thoughts of every one. And therefore let no one think that he can find Him by his own wisdom, unless, as we have said, he empty his mind of all wickedness, and conceive a pure and faithful desire to know Him. For when any one has so prepared himself, He Himself as a prophet, seeing a mind prepared for Him, of His own accord offers Himself to his knowledge”   

What Peter is stating is that while the True Prophet exists at the core of all of mankind, (1) "...in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative"; (2) "...But He is soon found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth"; (3) the True Prophet "...deserts malevolent minds, because as a prophet He knows the thoughts of every one"; (4) that we cannot find the True Prophet on our own as stated that "...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"; (5) and that to draw nearer and find the Indwelling True Prophet, the seeker must "...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”.   When rightly understood, to find and learn from the Indwelling True Prophet, the seeker must become the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed (see http://Messianic.Nazirene.org/sower_seed.html ).  And in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, the same seed that is cast into the ground that is properly prepared and produces in levels of abundance ("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” ), is unable to germinate and produce when the ground in which it has been cast is not properly prepared ("...but He deserts malevolent minds ...in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative").  

   Reading The Law Of God: One may ask: Isn't the scriptures composed in order to teach the person what they need to know?  Many Bible scholars would maintain that: "We are instructed to let Scripture interpret Scripture not apply our own thoughts and opinions to what the Scriptures mean".  And while this is true, it is our frame of thought and how we apply the scriptures that will progress or inhibit our understanding.  The scriptures cannot mature and evolve our thinking and understanding, so long as we cling to carnal outward interpretations in the manner of the Pharisees who Jesus portrayed as the "spawn of the devil" (see Christianity - The Devil's Spawn http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com ).   It is therefore paramount to pose the question: Is the scriptures historical accounts?  Or is the scriptures a series of symbols that act as catalyst that when properly used, transforms and matures our own mind and brings about a condition of Wholeness? 

That the consciousness of organic (natural) man embryonic, and is too immature to comprehend the higher reality of the Soul and the spiritual meaning of the scriptures, is why Paul warned that the quasi-historical account of Jesus and the crucifixion is "milk" designed for "babes in Christ" (see http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ) -- wherein he warned that if he even attempted to convey the Higher Truth to the baptized and confirmed Christians who he personally taught and instructed, that they would reject the spiritual meaning of the Gospels as utter "foolishness".  Why?  Mystics and Spiritual Visionaries don't write about the historical accounts of this world.  They understand the necessity of opening the eyes and the mind of the seeker, so that they will be able to begin to tap into the Higher Source of Knowledge that exists within each person.   But because organic man is immature, and therefore he is mentally incapable of comprehending his own higher Soul and Spiritual Reality, the authors of the scriptures understood the need to create writings that the person will receive and embrace, thereby creating the necessary environment that will enable the imbedded symbols and catalysts inserted into the scriptures to begin the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening that achieves greater wholeness of mind.  Because the mind of organic man is very much an embryonic seed that must be sown in what is portrayed as the parable of the Sower and the Seed as the "good ground" that brings forth fruit in the form of the Divine Manna that mentally expands and spiritually deepens the mind of the sincere seeker beyond organic human levels of consciousness.  Therefore, without this necessary transformational  process, the spiritual meaning of the scriptures and the higher reality of the Soul remains beyond the organic limitations of natural human comprehension. 

When Jesus condemned the Pharisees as "blind guides" who were the "spawn of the devil" (John 8:43-44), he portrayed the Pharisees in this manner because of the manner in which they interpreted the scriptures.  Why?  Because in their carnal interpretations, they interpreted the scriptures historically, and celebrated them in outwardly in ritual and tradition -- i.e., Jesus said: "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 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.    

When asked when the Kingdom will come?  Jesus replied that it will never come upon the earth so as to be seen with man's physical eyes -- "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).  Therefore, when the scriptures are used as the Key of Knowledge and turned within the seekers own mind (see Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ), only then can the scriptures be properly used as the Key of Knowledge to open the inner door to the Kingdom.   Because the mind of man is in an organic embryonic condition, the scriptures employ allegorical catalyst that connect with our inner consciousness, in order to develop the mind of the reader through the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening. In further explanation, Peter cautions the seeker and states with respect to reading and studying the scriptures that "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".

If we ask the question: What is being said to the believer who desires to be faithful to the Gospel Teachings?   What we have in the foregoing is the confirmation of the New Covenant Principles that few modern believers understand the spiritual reality of.  In the same way that the believer is commanded to seek out the One Teacher at the core and essence of their consciousness, and the commandment that "...when the law of God (scriptures) is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind".  Why?  Because our human consciousness is shallow and lacks any dept of self-knowledge, organic man therefore attempts to interpret the scriptures outwardly -- observing them in ritual and tradition in the manner of the Jews.  In the foregoing it is being stated that there is only One Source of Truth -- and that the wisdom of man will misguide the seeker.   By design, human reasoning is embryonic, and is incapable of understanding the true meaning of the scriptures -- i.e., "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind."   And neither should you listen to other men's gravely flawed outward interpretations of the scriptures -- i.e., "...For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".   Therefore, all the Bible commentaries and Church teachings do more to alienate believers from the Truthe and the spiritual meaning of the scriptures, than to help them. 

Jesus taught that there is only one Source of Truth, and the disciple/seeker must learn directly from that One Teacher by becoming the "good ground" in which the Living Word has been implanted (see above: The One Teacher http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com#TheOneTeacher ).  Therefore, in view of the fact that when reading the scriptures the true follower of Jesus is barred from seeking "...a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without" -- as set forth by Peter in the Homilies of Clement it is portrayed as 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" (see Baptism As A Divine Marriage http://Sacraments.Nazirene.org#BaptismAsADivineMarriage ) -- means that because the modern Church has embraced the dogma of pagan Rome and rejects the foundational teaching to be taught only from the True Prophet within them, they have caused themselves to be "...withdrawn from God the Father and Creator of all, receiving another teacher besides Christ".   From an Original Gospel perspective, there can be no valid interpretation of the scriptures drawn from another person, a rabbi or teacher, an authority of a Church, or from one of the countless Bible commentaries.  Why?    Because the scriptures are not historical accounts -- and every aspect of the scriptures are "allegorical ...symbols of something hidden”.    Which is why Jesus had to open the mind of the disciples to the real and spiritual meaning of the allegorical scriptures -- i.e., "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45).   And those who embrace the literal text is exactly as portrayed by Paul portrayed them as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14). 

The scriptures are written with an historical facade that enables important basic teachings to be set before the developing mind of the immature seeker.  The scriptures therefore employ allegorical symbolism as catalysts that are used to connect our organic human consciousness with our inner Self -- and ultimately the Indwelling True Prophet (a.k.a. Logos/Son of God).  And any human organic interpretation will not only mislead us, but will negate the catalysts inserted into the text of the scriptures and inhibit our mental and spiritual development.  And thus, these words which are representative of the core Gospel teachings, are inconceivable to the modern faith-based believer who is divided and disenfranchised from the very essence and objectives of the Gospel teachings -- overwhelmed and anchored to a carnal mindset that is of the "outer darkness" -- spiritually disenfranchised by innumerable manmade opinions, factions and sects which totally alienate the believer from the Truth and the Kingdom within them and at the Core and Essence of their Mind and Being.

The Apostle Peter states that while the True Prophet is within the minds of all mankind, there are certain conditions that must be present in order to begin to learn from the Inner Source of Mind and Being -- i.e., "but in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative".   And this fact of human reality was expressed by Giordano Bruno -- who was a priest that was burnt at the stake by the Church for conveying Original Gospel Teachings --  when he stated: "The Divine Light is always in man, presenting itself to the senses and to the comprehension, but man rejects it".  And while the True Prophet and the Source of Light and Truth exists within the mind of everyone of us, Peter warns that  "...He is soon found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth".   Which provokes the questions: What is the love of the Truth?   If a supposed believer clings to the corrupted words of the scriptures (see The Corruption Of The Words Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CorruptionOfGodsWords ), does this constitute a genuine "...love of the truth"?  

In making reference to The True Prophet who Jesus portrayed as the One Teacher within each person's own mind that must be sought out, Peter warns that: "Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth."  Which provokes the question: What about the scriptures?  Contrary to what many believe, the scriptures are not themselves the Word of God -- but rather, the scriptures are a map of our own mind -- i.e., a blueprint of our Consciousness - that details how to find the Word of God -- in accord with the New Covenant, within you.  and this is why Peter warned in the Homilies of his disciple Clement: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without". (see The Spiritual Disenfranchisement Of The Mind).    And in the same way that present-day Christianity is a religion of innumerable teachers and almost countless sects and factions, the reality of these words are totally incomprehensible to the modern Church.   Yet, these words are not only representative of the very core foundation of the Gospel teachings, but they are representative of the original objectives of the New Covenant.  

  The Condemnation Of Sects And Divisions: ONLY the direct teaching of the One True Prophet can reveal the true spiritual meaning of the scriptures.   As explored above, Peter correctly states that a believer should reject all outward interpretations.   Paul correctly states that a believer must reject all human opinions, doctrines and sects as being turned out of TheWay.    It is for this reason the Apostle cautioned Titus to “Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him. You may be sure that such a man is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned” (Titus 3:10-11 NIV).  The Greek meaning of the word divisive is “one who promotes a sect” -- i.e., a doctrine of belief.  Which means that all the Church's that claim to be following Jesus -- all the teachers and commentaries on the scriptures -- are all the embodiment of the Anti-Christ.  Why the Anti-Christ?  Because as teachers who promote a sectarian doctrine of belief, and/or an interpretation of the meaning of the scriptures, these faux-teachers and leaders are diverting the believer from being taught by the One Teacher that Jesus taught to seek out, and is therefore a minister, priest, teacher empowered by the Anti-Christ.  The only valid New Covenant teaching is how and what the believer must do, to learn directly from the Indwelling True Prophet (aka Logos/Son of God) as explored at The Two Ways - New vs Old Covenants http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#TheTwoWays .   Paul was so adamantly opposed to manmade schisms and carnal opinions that he chastised the believers at Corinth that they were not men of the spirit -- as was evidenced that they had divisions among them.   He explained that the carnal, or “natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 KJV); and informs them that they are too “carnal, and walk as men” (1 Cor 3:3 KJV) to open the inner door of the mind and learn directly from the Lord via the spirit. From his perspective, the very existence of these divisions was proof the believers at Corinth were too carnal to experience direct communication with the indwelling True Prophet -- which opening of the inner door to the spirit was the whole essence of New Covenant theology.

Writing about schisms and divisions that Paul condemns in the above statement in the Epistle to Titus, the Church Father Turtillian writes: “On this point, however, we dwell no longer, since it is the same Paul who, in his Epistle to the Galatians, counts 'heresies' among 'the sins of the flesh,' who also intimates to Titus, that 'a man who is a heretic' must be 'rejected after the first admonition,' on the ground that 'he that is such is perverted, and committeth sin, as a self-condemned man.' Indeed, in almost every epistle, when enjoining on us (the duty) of avoiding false doctrines, he sharply condemns heresies. Of these the practical effects are false doctrines, called in Greek heresies, a word used in the sense of that choice which a man makes when he either teaches them (to others) or takes up with them (for himself). For this reason it is that he calls the heretic self-condemned, because he has himself chosen that for which he is condemned”.   In the gospel preached by Paul, heresy is considered a “sin of the flesh”, because schisms and divisions are the result of natural man clinging to ideas of a carnal nature.   Why are these baptized and committed Christians plagued by schisms and divisions?   Because they only call upon the Lord with their lips, while failing to do as the Apostle states by following in TheWay and “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature” (Col 3:5 NIV).  Sincere believers must therefore turn from the understanding of the flesh, or in the words of the Apostle: “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” (Rom 8:6 KJV).  The religion of Christ was one of the spirit -- and Paul taught the Gentile believers not to look to the historical man Jesus, 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 NAS).   This Spiritual 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 making reference to The True Prophet who Jesus portrayed as the One Teacher, Peter warns that: "Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth”.   If we ask the question: What is being said to the believer who desires to be faithful to the Gospel Teachings?   In the same way that the believer is commanded to seek out the One Teacher, and the commandment that "...when the law of God (scriptures) is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind" -- it is being stated that there is only One Source of Truth -- and that the wisdom of man will misguide the seeker.   By design, human reasoning is incapable of understanding the true meaning of the scriptures -- i.e., "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind."   And neither should you listen to other men's gravely flawed interpretations of the scriptures -- i.e., "...For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".   Therefore, what is being stated is that if you read the scriptures you must not interpret them from a human perspective -- and neither are you to read them from a perspective of another person, a teacher or church authority, or base you interpretation upon any interpretation brought from source outside your own mind.  Why? Because ONLY THE TRUE PROPHET can reveal the meaning of the scriptures to you -- i.e., "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45).

  The Purpose Of The Scriptures: The scriptures were not written to teach you events that you must faithfully believe.  From a historical perspective, the vast majority of the text of the scriptures is neither accurate or even true -- and is an allegorical facade that is imbued with catalysts that connect the person you are in this world, with your Higher Soul-Self and ultimately the Indwelling Logos.  And this quasi-historical facade that is not historically accurate, is why Paul portrayed the scriptures as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).  

In their original condition the Gospels contained important spiritual teachings and concepts that had the ability to open and develop the inward Intuitive spheres of mind -- enabling the seeker to begin to balance the outward-looking Linear spheres of mind with the inward-looking Intuitive spheres of mind -- in preparation for the seeker/disciple to employ the process of Anamnesis (The Innate Knowledge Of The Truth Of All Truths: http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#Innate ).  The Gospel account of Jesus states that the Kingdom is within you -- and it is therein that you must seek the Law of God as seen in the statement: “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).  

The proper use of the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge, enables the seeker to begin to connect with both their Inner True-Self -- and ultimately, the True Prophet at the Core and Essence of their Mind and Being -- and it is this inner connection that is the objective of the New Covenant Gospels (see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ).   By developing the latent areas of mind, this prepares the seeker/believer to receive the Divine Manna of the Kingdom (see The Divine Manna - The foundation of the New Covenant http://BrotherOfJesus.org#NewCovenant ).   Therefore, the Gospels were not themselves the Word of God or the Divine Manna.   No one could read the Gospels and perceive the Divine Manna.  Why?  Because the Gospels were a text-book on the transformational changes that the seeker/disciple had to bring about in their own lives to begin to receive the Divine Manna that can only be imparted to a seeker in accord with their condition and ability to receive the Spiritual Nourishment (Knowledge) that can only be received directly from God (see At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ).  But because modern man has permitted himself to become alienated from his True-Self, and Spiritually Disenfranchised by virtue of the rote programming of the Linear spheres of mind, the suppression of the Intuitive spheres of mind (see The Mental Cause Of Gender Violence), and the fact that the Churches have embraced the error of the Jews in throwing away the Key of Knowledge when reading and interpreting the scriptures, the whole of our thinking has been rendered mentally flat-lined.

 

The Folly Of Liner-Derived Knowledge: No amount of outward linear derived knowledge -- no amount of traditional education -- no amount of book-knowledge -- no amount of teachings or instruction -- can either develop the Intuitive spheres of mind, or provide access to the those areas of mind that exist in the person's own Higher Soul-Mind.  And it is this development of the seekers mind that must be planted in a body that is a spiritual foundation, that is the sole purpose of the scriptures -- which utilized allegorical symbols that act as catalysts that connect the person we are in this world with our inner Self -- utilizing a quasi-historical facade that is in most instances factually and historically inaccurate -- in order to develop the Intuitive and utilize the process of Anamnesis to slowly bring about the deepening and expansion of mind that enables the seeker to learn directly from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God portrayed as the True Prophet.   Which means that when critics portray the scriptures as being poorly written -- contradicting other Gospels -- that they contain countless inconsistencies and discordances -- that they plagiarized other religions -- and that they totally lack continuity with the Old Testament -- they fail to understand the higher purpose and objective of the Sacred Writings.  And in their linear-minded critique, they sentence themselves to a life of being mentally inhibited and flat-lined, and spiritually disenfranchised.   And because from the perspective of the allegorical Genesis account, they eat the fruit of the Tree of Duality, then orchestrate their own (mental and spiritual) demise (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ).

Once a person has become mentally locked into a belief, regardless of the facts presented or the intellectual arguments to support the facts are made, it is extremely difficult to convey the facts to them in a rational and intelligent manner that they will accept.  In most instances, they will attack the messenger instead of examining the facts.  And if these people are members of a group -- either church or philosophical/cultural school of thinking -- it is virtually impossible to open their minds to embrace the facts.    Therefore, unless a Fact or a Truth is made appropriate to the thinking of the people it is intended to reach, then its propagation will be useless. 

When we instruct elementary school students, we present the information in an age and grade-level appropriate manner.   In the words of the Church Father Origen we find his assertion that the Word takes on a form which is appropriate to a certain group of people, that it might begin the process of bring those people to a spiritual level of maturity.  Thus, Origen writes that “If a Greek wished by wholesome instruction to benefit people who understood only Egyptian or Syriac, the first thing that he would do would be to learn their language; and he would rather pass for a Barbarian among the Greeks, by speaking as the Egyptians or Syrians, in order to be useful to them, than always remain Greek, and be without the means of helping them. In the same way the divine nature, having the purpose of instructing not only those who are reputed to be learned in the literature of Greece, but also the rest of mankind, accommodated itself to the capacities of the simple multitudes whom it addressed. It seeks to win the attention of the more ignorant by the use of language which is familiar to them, so that they may easily be induced, after their first introduction, to strive after an acquaintance with the deeper truths which lie hidden in Scripture. For even the ordinary reader of Scripture may see that it contains many things which are too deep to be apprehended at first; but these are understood by such as devote themselves to a careful study of the divine word, and they become plain to them in proportion to the pains and zeal which they expend upon its investigation” (Origen Contra Celsum).

  Re-Engineered Myths: Pythagoras, Giordano Bruno, Gurdjieff are among those who stated that the Laws and the Foundation of Creation were all composed in Mathematics and Numbers.  In the subheading entitled The Original Spiritual Language Of The Gospels, I demonstrate that the Original Gospels were written in Hebrew Characters -- and in this language without vowels, each letter is also a number.   What this means is that every name not only has a meaning in what the names and places portrayed -- how the name was used - but each letter and name also has a numerical equivalent that when used and understood in conjunction with the other names of people, places or things, can portray an esoteric meaning that is not at all apparent to the readers who believe they are reading either a myth, folklore, or an historical account.   What this means is that the authors of the scriptures re-engineered the common beliefs of the people -- many of which can rightly be portrayed as founded upon myth or folklore.  In the re-engineered versions, while the people accepted and embraced the writings because on the surface they appeared to confirm and support their beliefs, the changes made in the re-engineering process opened the door to depth of mind and spirit that is not understood by those who see only the surface of the text.  In the Zohar it states: “The narratives of the doctrine are its cloak. The simple look only on the garment, that is upon the narrative of the doctrine; more they know not.  The instructed, however, see not merely the cloak, but what the cloak covers”.   The Jewish mystic who spends his life seeking the inner meaning of the written word that the natural mind of man is incapable of seeing, has warned: "Thus the tales related in the Torah are simply her outer garments, and woe to the man who regards that outer garb as the Torah itself, for such a man will be deprived of portion in the next world..." (the Zohar quoted in No Jew Has Read The Torah).   Peter, Paul, Origen and others stated that what appears to be historical never happened --portraying the literal text as allegory.   These same truths are again conveyed to us in the words of the Church Historian Eusebius: “Many were led astray by reading the allegorical contents of the scriptures literally in the method of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”.   What these symbols truly mean is perhaps best expressed by G.R.S. Mead in his celebrated work, Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, where he explained that, once properly understood, the true meaning of what is “…projected onto the screen…” of the scriptures, “…was in reality a picture of their [man’s] own minds”

Wise enlightened men understand the reality expressed in the words: "The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend" -- and once the mind of people are locked into a belief, it is virtually impossible to convey to them either facts or concepts that fail to support those beliefs.   So, by re-engineering the beliefs held by the people -- using the meaning of the names and numbers as symbols of higher consciousness and catalysts that connect the person to an inner source of Higher Mind within them -- as part of an outreach program, the authors of the scriptures were able to use the "outer garb as the Torah" to conceal and preserve important truths of the mind and spirit that a sincere seeker will need to know to prevail over self, and bring about their own spiritual regeneration.  We often hear the complaint with respect to the more ancient copies of the scriptures, that the spelling of names and places is often rendered differently.  But what is not understood is that the variations in the spelling is used to reveal and conceal a different esoteric truth.  

The authors of the scriptures were the Essenes who authored the Old Testament as an outreach project to assist in the development of the tribe of nomadic animal-sacrificing heathen Jews.   What the Torah and Old Testament therefore is, is the beliefs, myths and folklore of the heathen tribe of Jews that was re-engineered into a sacred writing that employs allegorical symbols which develop the mind, and uses mental-catalysts which connect the outer person we are in this world, with their inner True-Self, and ultimately the Indwelling Logos (Mind of God - aka Son of God).  But to understand how this is accomplished, you must (1) understand the Cosmology of Mind and Being; (2) understand the reality that modern science has only now confirmed that all the physical objects that you see in this world is an (allegorical) projection that originates in an UNSEEN SOURCE (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#TrueFactAndRealitiesOfLife ); (3) and that not only is this true with respect to your own mind and self, but that this Inner Source of Self and Higher Reality can be accessed and tapped into by those who develop the mind beyond organic human levels of Consciousness.   And the fact that the authors of the scriptures understood this Higher Reality of Human Consciousness, Mind and Being, is why the composed the scriptures in what can be portrayed as the UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE OF THE SOUL by employing Numbers and (allegorical) Symbols that act as Catalysts to connect the person we are in this world, with our Inner Source of Mind and Being that is not of this world. 

The purpose and objective of the scriptures is to embrace the symbols and catalysts embedded in the text to develop, deepen and expand the mind beyond the organic human embryonic level of consciousness, in order to connect the person we are in this world with our Inner True-Self and the True Prophet (aka Logos/Son of God).   This inner connection that spawns development beyond organic human levels of consciousness, cannot be accomplished through rote programming and blind belief in historical people or events -- the memorization of which does more to block and inhibit the development of mind than to in any manner enlighten the person.   The authors of the scriptures knew this when they re-engineered the the myths and folklore that the people believed in.  Why?  In the first place it is impossible for men of an organic human consciousness to comprehend their own higher Soul-Reality -- which is why the biblical authors portrayed "natural" man as being of an "animal-soul" level of of mind and consciousness that is incapable of comprehending his own higher Soul-Realty (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ).  And this reality is demonstrated in one excerpt of the analogy of Plato's Cave where mankind is portrayed as prisoners in a Cave of Illusions, escapes the Cave and finds himself thrust out in the Source-Realm where the shadow-images of the Cave are generated (see Plato - The Physicist http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#Plato ) -- wherein, because they cannot even begin to deal with the Source of Reality, they scamper back into the Cave of Illusions.          

When the Church Father Origen wrote that: “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 he was making reference to was the fact that the modern critic who rejects the literal body of the scriptures as myths and little more than "Jewish fables" (Titus 1:14), were correct.  Why?  Because the Jewish fables and folklore were the basis of the people's beliefs.  And while those who only saw the literal interpretation of the written word can be portrayed as having been (in the words of Paul) slain by the "letter that killeth", those who sought to understand the underlying truth beneath the cloak of the written text, were able to perceive the Living Word of God.  

As I have written, the scriptures are not historical -- but rather, present to the reader the blueprint of the mind and the Laws and Forces of Consciousness.  And once again turning to physicist Niels Bohr where he stated: “The fact that religions through the ages have spoken in images, parables, and paradoxes means simply that there are no other ways of grasping the reality to which they refer. But that does not mean that it is not a genuine reality. And splitting this reality into an objective and a subjective side won’t get us very far.”   In recognizing the Higher Reality of Mind that exists in the UNSEEN (ÆTHERIC) FIELD), this connection to the Higher Mind cannot be achieved through the outward looking Linear spheres of mind -- but only through the inward looking Intuitive spheres of mind.   Thus, the traditional linear composed and written books, rote memorization and traditional study is actually an impediment to the development of the inward looking Intuitive.  Which can only be developed and accessed through what Niels Bohr correctly portrays as the allegorical "...images, parables, and paradoxes means simply that there are no other ways of grasping the reality to which they refer."   When Paul warned the baptized and confirmed Christians 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...", it was because the mind must evolve through the interaction of the Linear and Intuitive spheres that enable the seeker to develop the process of Anamnesis -- which enables the seeker to harness the power and abilities of the Intuitive, which permits the seeker to look Inwardly and begin to tap into the Logos of God.   And this cannot be accomplished through the traditional linear composed and written books, rote memorization and traditional study -- but only through the allegorical "...images, parables, and paradoxes means simply that there are no other ways of grasping the reality to which they refer."    

As stated in the beginning of the article The Reality Of The Original Gospels , the objective of the scriptures was to evolve the seeker/believer to a mature and enlightened condition of mind.  And thus, the authors did not create linear-minded historical accounts that would fail to develop the inward looking Intuitive -- which is why the Apostle Peter as quoted by his disciple Clement in the Homilies that "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".   To read the Gospels in accord with "...the understanding of our own mind", is to interpret them from a Linear literal or historical perception.  Or to read the Gospels from the perspective of "...a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without", is to inhibit the primary purpose which is to develop the seekers own Intuitive spheres of mind which enables them to begin to develop and utilize the process of Anamnesis to tap into the Inner Source of Knowledge that exists in the UNSEEN (ÆTHERIC) FIELD) and the person's own Higher Soul-Mind, and receive the Divine Manna of the Kingdom.     

In the parable of the Sower and the Seed, the ability to receive the Divine Manna is in direct relation to that person's ability to become the "good ground" that permits the Living Word to evolve them into a condition of Spiritual Maturity.  To ignore this parable as modern Christians do, is to render them spiritually impotent and disenfranchised.   When the disciples asked Jesus about the meaning of the parable of the Sower and the Seed, Jesus replied: “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).  Which means that only those who have become a sincere and genuine disciple of TheWay -- abandoning the thinking, mindset and lifestyles of this world -- and travailing in TheWay in strict accord with the original Gospel teachings -- can understand the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel.  As Jesus confirmed: “Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13).   Which means that unless you transform yourself into what is portrayed in the parable as the "good ground", it will remain impossible for you to perceive beneath the allegorical facade of the Gospels, and understand the true spiritual meaning.  And while the literal text of the Gospels were designed to be used as a basis for one's life -- and does not inflict that damage that Peter portrays as Bad Beliefs About God as is the case with the Old Testament -- unless you undergo the transformation that opens your heart and mind to the inner spiritual meaning -- enabling you to receive the Divine Manna directly from the indwelling Logos/Son of God -- you will remain immature and undeveloped. 

  Alleged Text-Errors, Discordances And Inconsistencies: What the translators and body of believers fail to understand, is the fact that the alleged discordances and inconsistencies were intentionally inserted into the text of the scriptures for a number of important reasons.  Admittedly, what is truly difficult for  the untransformed carnal mindset to understand, is that each of the variant readings are unique to understanding that passage of scripture from that particular author from a spiritual perspective.  It has been long noted that there is no unity and common witness of the Gospels on the crucifixion accounts.  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. 

Each gospel writer states their version as fact, even though it is clear that no agreement exists among the Gospel accounts.  It is not simply a case that they recorded different details: the actions of Jesus in each gospel reflect general differences in opinion 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 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 too.   Matthew 27:51-53 describes Earthquakes and the rising of the dead -- things which no-one else at all noticed.  At Luke 23:44 it states "It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon" -- and if such an event took place, it would have been noted around the world.  Moreover, at Matt 27:25 it reads: "From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness came over all the land."  When it is pointed out that Luke is different than Matthew, in addition to the fact that no such event ever transpired, the numbers were intentionally made different by the author for a spiritual reason that can only be reveled to the reader by the One Teacher that Jesus commanded to seek out (see The One Teacher).    

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, each of the spheres 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.   

  Fulfilling the Works and Miracles Of Jesus: Jesus said: "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).  Why can't Christians fulfil. this Gospel promise?  Because they fail to apply the gospels as the Key of Knowledge, and they fail to perform the necessary works and miracles within their own mind and being as they become resurrected into the Inner Kingdom. Having failed to fulfill the Gospel, they neither are sincere believers or worthy of the Lord as stated in the words: “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). Having failed to fulfill the works and miracles, they are complacent and therefore not sincere believers.

Not to understand WHY the authors of the scriptures used myths and miracles that never physically took place, is an example of why organic man is totally disconnected with his Inner True-Self that is personified in the great adage to seek to Know Thyself.  Where the undeveloped mind blindly believes the literal text of the scriptures that were portrayed by Paul as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14) because they are interpreted as actual historical accounts -- whereas, the more intelligent person understands that the whole of the scriptures must be understood as events and realities of their own mind as they embrace the process of mental-expansion and spiritual deepening as explored at The Cosmology Of The Gospels http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com .
Your True-Self that exists at the core and essence of your own Mind and Being, is as a prisoner who must tolerate a dumb-ass ego-self that is incapable of considering truths that has been set before the person they are in this world. Do you want to know why the authors of the scriptures used myths and as Paul states, folktales, in their writings? And when you are told the reason why, your dumb-ass ego-self is incapable of comprehending the great truths and realities that have been set before you. Why? Because you blindly believe the folly of the critics who are no more intelligent than those who blindly believe that the scriptures are actual historical accounts -- which has long ago proven to be false.

The Gospel account of Jesus portrayed those who interpret the scriptures outwardly as actual historical narratives and ritual and tradition as the "spawn of the devil". Which provokes the question: Are the critics who are mentally shackled by their dumb-ass ego-selves any different, when they also attempt to interpret the scriptures outwardly as historical narratives any more intelligent than the blind believers? Even though one of the authors of the Epistles portrays the literal text as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales"?

If the people who embodied all that is portrayed in the term dumb-ass ego-selves had any inner connection to their imprisoned True-Self, then they would know why the authors of the scriptures employed myth, folklore and events that never historically transpired. Their own True-Self knows the important reason -- but they have been so alienated from their True-Self, that they are incapable of making an intelligent inquiry. If the Myth, Folklore and Miracles fail to be brought about within your own mind, then you will fail to make any real progress in this present life.  When the Church was accused of being a "secret system" (see The Christian Secret Doctrine http://nazirene.org/secret_doctrine.htm  ) -- teaching the spiritually mature a totally different doctrine than the common blind-believer who was incapable of comprehending the higher reality of their own Soul, the Church Father Origen explained with respect to the belief in 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 Origen, Contra Celsum). When the scriptures are applied as the Key of Knowledge (see Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ), intelligent seekers must come to the realization that what is personified in the resurrection must be brought about within your own mind and being, in order for the ego-self to become your True-Self.

What the above means is that fulfilling the Gospels and performing the works and miracles that Jesus did, is in fact a true test of belief.  Jesus stated: If you truly believe, then you will have performed the works and miracles that Jesus did.  And having brought about the Resurrection within you, you will know the Truth that makes the prodigal sons and daughters free, because the Lord will have healed your organic blindness (see The Three Causes Of Human Blindness http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#ThreeCausesOfHumanBlindness ), and you will have been restored to the Edenic Kingdom which your Soul abandoned in the Alpha of Creation.  Unless you accomplish the required works and miracles that the Gospels attest you will perform, then your lips are lying when you claim to be a believer -- i.e., "'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me" (Matt 15:8).  Test those who claim to be a believer -- i.e., “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.  You will know them by their fruits" (Matt 17:15-16).   Only those who convey to you how to perform the works and miracles and consciously enter the Inner Kingdom, are genuine believers.

  How Did Jesus Become The Anointed (Messiah/Christ): When the Church of Constantine corrupted the Words of God spoken to Mankind (see http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CorruptionOfGodsWords ) -- and with the corruption of the very Words of God spoken to mankind, a totally different religion was created.   In order to support the tenets of the new religion which can rightly be portrayed as the Church of Constantine, the Church then removed the teachings on the pre-existent Soul that evolves to Wholeness and Perfection over the course of many UNIQUE lifetimes.  And with these changes in the very foundation of the Church, it became virtually impossible for Christians to understand: (1) how the man Jesus became At-One with the Logos (Mind of God aka Son of God) by fulfilling the Law within his own mind and being; (2) inhibited believers from understanding the true purpose and objectives of the life that mankind is presently living; (3) the purpose and objective of the Gospels by throwing away the Key of Knowledge in the manner of the blind-guide Pharisees; (4) and the knowledge of how each of the the prodigal sons and daughters returns to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.   Which is why I write in the above that with the corruption of the Words of God spoken to mankind, the congregation of believers were cast into a Spiritual Diaspora which they have yet to escape.  

What modern Christian would ask the question: How many human lives did it take the Soul of the man Jesus to become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ)?  What modern Christian would ask Jesus the question: "'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?'" (John 9:1-2)?   What modern Christian is aware of the foundational first century position presented in The Hastings-Scribner Dictionary Of The Bible (New York, 1903. Bk 4, p. 63) "To affirm that Jews in Christ's time did not believe in pre-existence is simply incorrect"?   What modern Christian is even prepared to understand the requirement that Jesus set forth in the words: "You, therefore, must be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is Perfect" (Matt 5:48)? 

From a modern Christian perspective, believers can't even imagine the teachings of the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen who wrote that “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).  From an original Gospel perspective, what this would mean is that it was the "victories ...of ...previous lives" that enabled the man Jesus to fulfill the Law, and become the Anointed who was At-One with the Indwelling Logos.   And what this also means is that it is the  "...defeats of [each person's] previous lives” that has inhibited each person from accomplishing what the man Jesus did.  

Especially in view of the fact that Origen is called “…the most prominent of all the church fathers” (Encyclopedia. Britannica), and was considered by Jerome to be “the greatest teacher of the Church after the Apostles.” St. Gregory of Nyssa called him “the prince of Christian learning in the Third Century.” Eusebius, who is known as the Historian of the early church, writes of Origen that he “…clung firmly to the Christian principles his parents had taught him, as this record has already shown”

It is a well established biblical fact that the untransformed mind of organic man which Paul portrays as an "animal-soul" level of consciousness (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ), is incapable of comprehending his own higher Soul-Reality -- i.e., "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3). .  And because the faith-based believers who Paul stated were too "carnal" to understand the spiritual meaning of the Gospel, by necessity they were taught differently than the Christians of a more spiritually mature mind.  Among the mysteries that were concealed from the masses who were too carnal to receive the deeper truths of Christianity, was the doctrine of the pre-existence of the soul. In his writing known as The True Word, Celsus, the second century opponent of the Church, authored a document wherein he accused the Christian Church of teaching the masses the spurious doctrine of heaven and hell in an after death state, while teaching the inner core of the elect the doctrine of reincarnation. Though this may astonish the modern believer, Origen was commissioned by the Church to refute the allegation of Celsus, where he explains that: “But on these subjects much and that of a mystical kind, might be said; in keeping with which is the following: It is good to keep close the secret of a king, (Tobit xii, 7), in order that the doctrine of the entrance of souls into bodies, not, however, that of the transmigration from one body into another, may not be thrown before the common understanding, nor what is holy given to the dogs, nor pearls be cast before swine. For such a procedure would be impious, being equivalent to a betrayal of the mysterious declaration of God's Wisdom”.
The response of the allegations of Celsus against the Church is totally inconceivable to the modern Christian -- i.e., “It is good to keep secret the entrance of souls into bodies”, meaning why the prodigal son traveled into this, the Far Country.  And while this teachings was not to be revealed, Origen writes, but “not… the transmigration from one body into another”.  In other words, Origen openly acknowledges that the pre-existence of the soul, as well as the doctrine of transmigration (reincarnation) are openly revealed to Christians who have been purified and matured sufficiently to comprehend the mysteries of God, while the knowledge of why the soul even came into this world is kept secret, and is not openly revealed to carnal minds.  In explanation, Origen quotes scripture and writes “It is good to keep close the secret of a king”, and affirms that certain mysteries only belong to the spiritually mature in the word, and that one should not permit “what is holy given to the dogs, nor pearls be cast before swine”.

The problem is that unless the believer understands the teaching on the pre-existent Soul, it will remain impossible for them to evolve to the necessary level of spiritual maturity to not only understand the spiritual meaning of the Gospel, but also the higher reality of their own Soul and True-Self.   And with the foundational teachings on the pre-existent Soul suppressed and removed from the Gospels, it became impossible to understand how the man Jesus became the Anointed, and At-One with the Indwelling Logos.  And when you add to this the corruption of the Words of God to mankind, the Church of Roman Emperors (see http://ChristianReincarnation.org#emperors ) has erected an insurmountable obstacle that has inhibited Christians from fulfilling the very purpose and goal of the Original Gospel Teachings.   Taking this suppression of crucial teaching one step further, Jesus taught that all of mankind is born into a condition of limited sight that can be portrayed as a type of blindness (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SoulEvolution ).  Unless the person understands the Paradox of Soul-Reality (see http://ChristianReincarnation.org#SoulParadox ), it will remain impossible for the believer/seeker to comprehend the higher reality of their own Soul that is not, and cannot manifest in the physical body.  Thereby inhibiting the believer from understanding the Gospel teaching that unless you lose the person you are in this world, it will remain impossible for you to find your True-Self.   While believers are vaguely familiar with the Gospel teaching that you must receive the Word of God as a child -- i.e., "And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them, and said, Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 18:2-3) -- with the core teaching on the children removed, it became impossible to understand how you must become a Child of the Kingdom (see The Missing Verse Removed From The Gospels http://BrotherOfYeshua.com/children.htm#TheMissingVerse ).   And while it can be proven that the first century Christian understood the question posed by the disciples of Jesus -- which suppressed teaching was removed from the Gospels where the disciples asked: "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?" It became impossible for the congregations of believers to understand Jesus' reply to their question when he explained: "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" (see The Gospel Enigma That Modern Christians Can't Comprehend http://GospelOfThomas.Nazirene.org#GospelEnigma ).   And thus, with the corruption of the Words of God to mankind, and the removal of critical Gospel teachings, it became impossible for the body of Christians to understand how they must become as a child and enter into the Kingdom while they are still present in the body-vessel -- as stated in the suppressed 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".   What this means is that if you fail to bring about the next stage of birth, and consciously enter the Inner Kingdom -- thereby fulfilling the requirement to be in the world and not of it -- as the lost prodigal son you will not be able to return to the Edenic Kingdom when your cycle of life is completed in this life.    

    

  The Gospel Restoration: In order to present the foregoing facts and explain the purpose and objective of the Gospels, the Lord sent the Soul who authored the Original Core Gospel written in Hebrew Characters (see The Original Spiritual Language Of The Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#OriginalLanguage ) back into the world to free the people from the shackles of blind belief in the doctrines of Roman Emperors and the spiritually disenfranchised Church -- and explain to modern Christians how they can prove the Truth for themselves (see Intro To Original Gospel By The Soul Who Lived As The Brother Of Jesus http://BrotherOfJesus.org#Introduction ).  How was my distant Soul-Memory restored that enabled me to author this and other articles that restore the Original Gospel Teachings?  By embracing the Words that God spoke to mankind, and by using the Gospels for their original intended purpose.   And by embracing the original purpose of the Gospels, I was able to overcome the human plight of Spiritual Amnesia and organic blindness. 

It is important in order to fulfill the very purpose of life in this world, that the prodigal sons and daughters have freewill and be able to make and live out the choices they have made.  Christians are being tested to see if they are willing to seek truth over the dogma of Roman Emperors and men who dress in the garb of priests and clergy.   But the critics of the Church are also being tested -- i.e., are they motivated merely to oppose, or are they willing to assist their brothers and sisters in the journey of the pursuit of higher truth?  While the critics have been given the reasoning and intellectual power to discern the great hoax that their faith-based brothers and sisters have been shackled by, their test is whether they are willing to open the door to higher learning and enlightenment for the spiritually destitute blind believers who dwell under the satanic umbrella of the Church.  While the critic has been bestowed the ability to see through the facade of man-made Roman dogma, unless they use this intellectual ability to guide their brothers and sisters onto a higher plane of awareness, they will have failed and thrown away their opportunity that has set them free of the faux-religious fraud perpetuated by what Thomas Paine portrayed as "priest-craft"

The eyewitness account has been made available to faith-based believer and critic alike.  And it will be the exercise of each person's own freewill and choice that will determine their future -- i.e., will they explore the facts that are not available anywhere else, and prevail over the cloak of ignorance that has shackled their brothers and sisters to lives of suffering and even death; or will they squander away their opportunity to arise and make positive change, and free their brothers and sisters from the dungeons of abject ignorance where they presently dwell.  Ultimately, the Truth is not in the rejection of the Gospel Teachings - but rather, in their restoration.   And unless a believer or a critic is able to guide the people they effect and enable them to open the door to higher Truth that can be proven and confirmed by their own experiences, then whether you are a believer, a critic, a clergy or a scholar or authority, you will have failed the purpose and objectives of this life, and you will be deemed a failure.  Every person possesses the innate ability to tap into the inner Source of Knowledge and Truth, and become Enlightened and of a Spiritually Anointed Mind (see Anamnesis - The Innate Knowledge Of The Truth Of All Truths: http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#Innate ).  And since every person possesses this inherent innate ability, no one has an excuse for their ignorance -- whether their ignorance takes the form of a believer, a critic, an alleged scholar or clergy, or even a teacher of any academic school of thought.  All paths that embrace the core Original Gospel teachings and concepts, arrive at the same ultimate destination.  And if the Original Gospel concepts were understood, Jesus would have been seen as a professor who taught the Natural Laws of Creation and the Lives we are presently living.  And when rightly understood, it is the Natural Laws of Creation (see The Laws That Control Our Lives http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TheLawsThatControlOurLives ) that when embraced, insure each of our success in achieving our Ultimate Destiny.    Therefore, the bottom line of life is that no person has a reason for blind belief -- whether they blindly believe in religion, philosophy or science -- each of us possesses the innate ability to tap into and learn the Truth of all Truths.  And since each person possesses this innate ability to tap into the Source of Truth and Knowledge within them, means that anyone who promotes systems of belief that fail to enable the people to tap into that Inner Source, is convicted by their own faux-doctrines that they promote.    

  The Folly Of Collective Salvation - Social Justice - Faith Without Actions: The concept of Collective Salvation, Justice and Faith without actions is all based upon the common lie of the Church that Jesus is god and all of mankind are basically subjects of the Trinitarian Royal Family.  When the Church corrupted the Words that God spoke to mankind in order to recreate the man Jesus as god incarnate, that reduced the life and role of mankind to little more than an affirmation of faith in Jesus.  Under the Jesus-god of Constantine, all of mankind were subject to the same requirement of collective salvation -- i.e., blind faith and belief -- which rendered all of mankind collectively equal and the same.   Based upon the reactionary doctrines created by Martin Luther against the corruption of the Church of Rome -- which reactionary doctrines were later promoted by Billy Graham and adopted by a large segment of what is known today as Evangelical Christianity, modern believers have embraced the Prayer of Salvation which basically states: "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".    What this means is that after saying your prayer, there is nothing more to accomplish.   No requirement of questioning the validity of the clergy and Church.  No requirement of gaining spiritual knowledge.  No requirement of living a spiritual lifestyle.  No requirement of anything beyond saying the Prayer of Salvation.   Which means that all of mankind would be seen as collectively equal and the same. 

In contradistinction to Collective Salvation and Justice based upon all of mankind being equally the same, if Jesus was a Holy Man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God (see http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ) as was the position of his most immediate disciples and followers who he walked and talked with daily, then there is no such thing as Collective Salvation and Justice -- and Equality does not in any way mean that all people are the same.   What it also means is that there was a reason why Jesus chose the men he did for his disciples, and why he said to 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).  If seeing and perceptive-hearing and understanding is in accord with each Soul's previous accomplishments, then the whole concept of Equality must be re-examined.  Why could Jesus speak plainly to his disciples, but could only speak in parables to others?  What made Jesus' chosen disciples different than the other people who he portrayed as blind and incapable of comprehending man's higher reality that could only be revealed to the few?  If the position of Jesus' most immediate disciples is true -- that Jesus was a Holy Man who became the Anointed by fulfilling the Royal Law -- i.e., 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) -- then modern Christianity has virtually nothing in common with the original Gospel framework of teachings (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ).   

One of the most important elements to this original Gospel teaching was not only that Jesus was a man who became of an Enlightened Anointed Mind (Christ/Messiah) by fulfilling the Royal Law within his own mind and being, but also that true equality is demonstrated in the teaching that if  "...any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ" -- and this ultra-important teaching is reflective of the Words that God spoke to mankind when the man Jesus became the first of the prodigal sons to become At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God when the voice of God said to mankind when Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee" --  which set the example and standard for all other prodigal sons and daughters to follow as found in the words: "You, therefore, must be Perfect, as your Heavenly Father is Perfect" (Matt 5:48).   What this means is that each person equally has the same ultimate potential -- which potential is achieved and fulfilled in accord with each person's own choices and accomplishments.  Which also means that no one has anyone other than themselves to blame of their plight and station in life.  Which provokes the question: How does a person become perfect?  What if the necessary perfection is not achieved in a person's lifetime?  The Answer: In the same way that the Church of Rome corrupted the very words that God spoke to mankind, the Church also removed, corrupted and suppressed the teachings on the pre-existent Soul that evolves to Wholeness and Perfection over the course of many lives (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SoulEvolution ).  Which means that each Soul enters this world at a very different level of development and Soul-Evolution.  Which means that while we are equally the offspring of Creator-God, we are anything but the same -- i.e., each of use is born into this world at greatly varying levels of Wholeness and Spiritual Evolution based upon each Soul's previous accomplishments as per the words of the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen who explained: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).  Which also means that Jesus was able to become At-One with the indwelling Logos/Son of God, because of all the Soul-Accomplishments he attained over the course of his previous lives.  Further, the only difference between the man Jesus and each person, is seen in the fact that Jesus embraced and made the most out of all the opportunities that were presented to him that others were complacent to.  And since each of us is born into this world in accord with our own previous choices and accomplishments -- i.e., "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7) -- then each of us is presently living in accord with True Social Justice which is defined by the United Nations as: Social justice is the view that everyone deserves equal economic, political and social rights and opportunities...".  If our present life has been authored by the Casual-Factors of our own previous choices and actions (see The Causal Factors Of Life http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org ), then each person is living in accord with their own allotted station in life that was of their own creation.   Whatever factors of one's birth, is the result of that Soul's own past actions.  What this means is that when another person intervenes into the life that person created -- without that person acknowledging their own previous actions as a Causal-Factor -- then you are in fact inhibiting that person's development.   True Repentance means acknowledging one's previous actions, along with a genuine willingness and desire to make change.  

It is virtually impossible for modern Christians to understand the spiritual meaning of the Gospels, because they don't understand the Royal Law -- the spiritual meaning of the Gospels -- or how Jesus became the Anointed and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.  Further, the Church of Rome declared the knowledge of the Royal Law heresy (see The Ebionite Heresy http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#TheEbioniteHeresy ).   Which means that the modern believer has no means of fulfilling the purpose and requirements of the Gospel teachings, because they are being victimized by the Church who ignores the facts and truths that have been presented to them.

   

  The Kingdom Within And The Cosmology Of Mind And Being: The Foundation of the New Covenant is ordained upon the reality portrayed in the words: "For this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord. I will put My laws in their minds, and inscribe them on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they will be My people. No longer will each one teach his neighbor or his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest" (Hebrews 8:10-11).

It will remain impossible to understand the above statement on the Foundation of the New Covenant teachings -- how to tap into this inner Source of Knowledge where each person is able to acquire Spiritual Knowledge directly from God ("It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God'" [John 6:45] ) -- how a coverture relationship or union is achieved with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God -- without understanding the Cosmology of Mind and Being.  Why?  Jesus taught that the Kingdom of God is within you -- and so long as your perceptive-vision and understanding remains fixed on the outside reflective world -- or you reject the New Covenant, and continue to learn from the wisdom of other men -- it will remain impossible for you to comprehend even your own higher Soul-Reality -- much less the reality of God. 

What we see when we look out at the world, is three-dimensional incomplete allegorical reflected shadow-images projected from an Unseen Source.  And while modern science has proven the existence of the Unseen Source (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#TrueFactAndRealitiesOfLife ), because modern science has not been able to gaze into -- or enter into the Source -- they have been forced to turn to the perceptive-vision of the Mystic in pursuit of the enigmatic Higher Knowledge that has remained forever beyond their reach (see Plato - The Physicist http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#Plato ).  And one of the most factual statements on the inner journey was made by the author and visionary Philip K. Dick who wrote with respect to the original disciples of Jesus that:  "Christ ...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, where other mystery religions only bring about amnesis: knowledge of it at the 'other time' in 'the other realm,' not here.  He causes it to come here, and is the living agency to the Sole Good God (i.e. the Logos)."  And this statement is so true beyond the modern understanding of both traditional religion and science, that it can easily be portrayed as inconceivable to the mind of the limited consciousness of organic "natural" man.   Why?  Having never fulfilled the adage to Know Thyself, organic man lacks the knowledge of the Cosmology of Mind, and the Higher Reality of God remains beyond his comprehension.  It is impossible to Know and Understand God, without first coming to Know Thyself.  Or, in the words of Jesus as preserved in the Gospel of Thomas: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".

That Organic Man is embryonic -- and without the necessary deepening and expansion of consciousness, remains blind to what modern science portrays as the Unseen Source (Spirit) of the reflected shadow-images he sees with his organic vision -- but being embryonic, mand possesses the innate capacity to develop and expand his perceptive-vision and comprehension -- and this reality is portrayed in the Gospel of Thomas in the words: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you...".  Why?  Because this world is a mental-womb ( Mental Womb http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#MentalWomb ) -- the purpose of which is to develop your mind to its full potential of the Kingdom of Man (see Entering The Kingdom Of Man http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#EnteringTheKingdomOfMan ) -- and this development of mind is maintained by the Natural Laws that were at the Alpha of Creation that develop each person by acting as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism (see http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#LivingBioFeedback ) -- bringing about your development through The Labyrinth Of Laws (see http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#Labyrinth ) that responds to your choices and exercise of freewill.   But it will remain impossible to understand this Higher Reality of Mind and Being without understanding the the Divine Pattern and Cosmology of Mind and Being.  To understand the Cosmology of Mind and Being and how to become At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God, it is important to understand the reality of mind that is explored in the previous links.   

When the first century elder Ignatius wrote to the Christian congregation of believers that: “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” -- he said this because if he was to begin to even convey the truth and reality of man's higher soul and spiritual nature and the Kingdom, these Christians would very quickly dismiss him as a crazy lunatic, and they would no longer listen to a thing that he says.  Was Ignatius wrong?  Can faith-based Christians understand the spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings?  This same exact message was conveyed to the baptized and confirmed Christians who Paul personally taught when he stated to them: "But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" -- which provokes the questions: What does Paul mean when he portrays the baptized and confirmed Christians who he personally taught as still being of a "natural" mind?   Which can also be portrayed as human organic consciousness which is the normal intellect across the human spectrum of mankind.   What is truly revealing if the basis of Paul's usage of the word "natural" is understood, is the proper interpretative-meaning of Paul's words with respect to the reality of what is portrayed by Paul as the natural man is then presented:  The Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary writes with respect to the meaning of the word in the original Greek language: "natural man—literally, 'a man of animal soul'."  Further,  the Treasury Of Scriptural Knowledge states of this ignored and profound statement at 1 Cor 2:14 which reads (quoting Paul): "But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" -- wherein the proper interpretative-meaning of Paul's words with respect to the reality of what is portrayed by Paul as the natural man is then presented: [Psuchikos,] the animal man, one who lives in a natural state, and under the influence of his animal passions; for [psuche] means the inferior and sensual part of man, in opposition to the [nous] understanding, or [pneuma,] the spirit.  And this is not only true -- but it is a fact of life that all mystics and enlightened souls must deal with when interacting with organic man.   Which is exactly why Paul profoundly stated to the very people who he had personally taught the Gospel message: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ).   Writing to the body of confirmed and baptized believers who he stated had received all truth and knowledge pertaining to the elementary "traditions" of Christ: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ). 

Therefore, Ignatius, as with all the biblical authors, understood that the mind of the believer must be matured -- that the dormant spheres of mind that do not correspond to this physical world must become activated and developed -- and only then can the believer begin to perceive and grasp his own higher soul and spiritual reality.   Science has remained blind to man's higher Soul-Reality and the Source-Kingdom, because they required the answers to life be drawn only and exclusively from the outer three-dimensional shadow-realm of this world.  In like manner, man's religious and philosophical leaders have remained blind to the spiritual reality portrayed by Paul, because remaining carnal in their thinking and mindset, they continue to look outwardly for what can only be found inwardly.  And in not understanding the purpose and objective of the scriptures, they are very much the blind guides that Jesus condemned and rejected.  When rightly understood, the Gospels teach the reality that all of organic man who is limited by natural human consciousness remains blind to his own higher Soul-Reality, unless he takes the necessary path to heal his organic human blindness to his own higher Soul-Reality (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SoulEvolution ).

We are all connected in deeper areas of mind and consciousness.  When Jesus said to the woman at the well that she was unable to go and get her husband to receive the Living Waters of Life, because she had five husbands (John 4:18) -- and because her mind and body was connected to the thinking of five (5) different men (see Sexual Immorality  http://SoulSelf.org#SexualImmorality ), and therefore could not be a reflective-polarity that is able to Complete and Raise Up just one man -- we must be cognizant of the fact that Jesus and other spiritually advanced souls are able to see into the Unseen Source (Ætheric Field) dimensions that man in his natural organic condition of mind is blind to.   What Jesus was observing when he made this statement, was the stream of vital life-force from five different men with whom the woman had sex, as a connective thought-stream entering into her.  And this expansion of organic human perceptive-vision and conscious beyond normal physical limits is what is portrayed in the process: "Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom will he make to understand the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just drawn from the breasts? For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little" (Isa 28:9-10 NKJ).    In the same way that an infant grows into a child and adult one step at a time, so too does the process of mental-expansion take place line upon line.  And this immaturity of mind and spirit causes the vast majority of believers not to comprehend an important overlooked and not understood Bible passage states in reference to the Higher Reality of God that mankind is blind to: “‘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 NIV).  If we indeed "...live and move and have our being" within the Mind of God, then what is our true relationship to God?  How can God be another Being -- separate from mankind -- when the scriptures proclaim that "...in him we live and move and have our being"?  Yet, when we put the foregoing biblical teaching together with the statement by James Jeans that: “...the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”.  Or the words of Arthur Eddington: “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”.  What is portrayed is a higher reality that few people are even prepared to contemplate -- much less, understand with sufficient degree to even form a realistic opinion.

An Enlightened person who understands the Natural Laws of Creation, understands that God is not a being who is separate from man -- but is the very Consciousness within which we move and have out being.  Perhaps one of the best teachings (which was removed from the canonical Gospels by the Church), has been preserved in the outlawed Gospel of the Nazirenes, and is known as the parable of the fishes (quoting): "And there were certain men, of doubtful mind, who came to Yeshua, and said to him, You tell us that our life and being comes from God, but we have never seen God, nor do we know of any God. Can you show us whom you call the Father-Mother, one God? We don't know if there is a God. Yeshua answered them, saying, Hear this parable of the fishes. The fishes of a certain river communed with one another, saying, they tell us that our life and being is from water, but we have never seen water, we don't know what it is. Then some among them, wiser than the rest, said, We have heard there dwells in the sea a wise and learned fish, who knows all things. Let us journey to him, and ask him to show us what water is. So several of them set out to find this great and wise fish, and they came at last to the sea where in the wise fish dwelt, and they asked of him. And when he heard them he said to them, O you foolish fish that don't contemplate! The few of you who seek, are wise. You live, and move, and have your being in the water; from the water you came, to the water you return. You live in the water, yet you don't know it.' In a similar manner, you live in God, and yet you ask of me, 'Show us God.' God is in all things, and all things are in God."  

Does a fish see the water?  No.  They only see the physical form of the objects that exist within the water -- or in the analogy of the fish, the water is the Reality of Mind within which all the physical objects exist.   At a deeper level, all of Mankind and Creation exits -- and is intimately connected -- within the Mind of God.  And while, like the fish, organic man can only see the form of the physical objects, because organic man is blind to the Reality of Mind and Spirit, we fail to see that “‘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).  Which has been confirmed in the words of James Jeans that: “...the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine” -- and the words of Arthur Eddington who is portrayed as an astronomer, physicist, and mathematician who did his greatest work in astrophysics.: “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”

Organic man who sees only the projected images that appears to us as concrete matter, is not able to understand that he only sees approximately ten (10%) of the Whole or Souce of the physical image -- a reality that mystics and spiritual visionaries have portrayed as a world of illusions -- or, in the analogy of Plato's Cave, shadow-images (see Plato's Cave http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#Cave ).  When we look into the mirror and gaze at our physical form, we are only seeing approximately ten percent of our True-Self that in our higher twelve-dimensional form, is a Being of Light (see http://SoulSelf.org ).   And because our own higher Soul-Self is a twelve-dimensional Being of Pure Intellect and Knowing, while we are a three-dimensional being that is a projected embryonic image of our True-Self, in our organic condition we are blind to the other ninety (90%) of Mind and Being.  Thus, we fail to see that we dwell in the Mind of our Higher Soul-Self -- and our Higher Soul-Self dwells in 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).     

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you abandon the Gospel and New Covenant Teachings, then you will in effect abandon both the Universal Path into Life, but also your higher purpose and objective of the life you are presently living.  Quoting from The Purpose Of The Scriptures http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com#PurposeOfTheScriptures : Critics portray the scriptures as being poorly written -- contradicting other Gospels -- that they contain countless inconsistencies and discordances -- that they plagiarized other religions -- and that they totally lack continuity with the Old Testament -- these critics fail to understand the higher purpose and objective of the Sacred Writings.  Why?  Because the countless inconsistencies, discordances and contradictions were intentionally inserted into the written text to develop the Intuitive spheres of mind that are suppressed by the Linear.  The embedded higher meaning can only be understood by the Intuitive spheres of mind that remain atrophied by the over-development of the Linear outward-looking spheres of mind.  And in their linear-minded critique, these who only see the inconsistencies, discordances and contradictions -- without understanding why they were intentionally inserted into the text of the written word -- sentence themselves to a life of being mentally inhibited and flat-lined, and spiritually disenfranchised.   When rightly understood with respect to the purpose and objective of the scriptures, the inconsistencies and discordances, along with the re-engineered myths and folklore -- were not only inserted into the written text so that they would make absolutely no sense to the linear-minded reader -- but this obstacle to a linear interpretation is necessary in order to force the linear to begin to communicate and learn from the intuitive-insights and interpretations, in order to evolve the mind to understand from a higher enlightened plane of comprehension.   

There is presently a movement to abandon religion and the Constitutional mandate that every individual person is imbued with God-Given Unalienable Rights.  And thus, when rightly understood what everyone is being presented with is a crossroads where one path leads into Life, while the other path leads to death -- when death is understood as a continued abandonment of achieving the Higher Life of when the lost prodigal sons/daughters are able to escape their continued imprisonment in this, the Far Country or Outer Darkness of Mind and Being -- thereby failing to achieve the next stage of birth and a continued suffering of what is best portrayed as a spiritual miscarriage or self-imposed abortion.  

Modern science has proven that all things that exist in this world are an expression of an Unseen Higher Reality (see http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#TrueFactAndRealitiesOfLife ) -- and to understand the nature and reality of the images we see with our physical senses, we must seek to understand what is physically revealed in the reality of the Unseen that exists beyond the perception of our physical senses.  The people of this world are often portrayed as the ego-self -- the earthly-self -- the lower-self -- and even the false-self -- which necessitates the process of self-discovery and fulfillment of the adage to Know Thyself.  In the Gospels this path into the Higher Unseen Reality is portrayed as entering into the "narrow strait gate" within us -- i.e., "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." (Matt 7:13-14) -- further explaining that: "For many are called, but few are chosen" (Matt 22:14).    With respect to the word that translators commonly render "destruction", the true meaning in no manner represents what is actually being presented in the translation.   Quoting the footnote on this word in the Schofield Reference Bible which reads: “There is no thought in these various words of annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”   And it is not until we come to understand the meaning of the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image), can we even begin to understand what is being taught in these verses.   When rightly understood by those who are conscious enough to look beyond the facade of the allegorical text of the scriptures, the religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam all present the Universal Path for the lost prodigal sons and daughters to return to their Source in the Edenic Kingdom of Origination (see http://GateOfEden.com ).   And the primary differences between the three religions, is caused by the corruption of these religions by faux-clergy and the secular authorities which used the religions to maintain control over the people. 

The True Source of all three religions is the Essene Ebionites of the Nazirene Vow.   What is not understood is the fact that the Essenes did not consider themselves to be Jews -- but were rather, the embodiment of Spiritual Israel who they often portrayed as the Sons of Light.  To the Essenes who were the original authors of the Torah and Jewish scriptures which are often portrayed as the Old Testament, the Jews were seen as an "outreach program" for the benefit of the nomadic tribe of heathen animal-sacrificing Jews who they assisted in making the transition from carnal Jews to a more spiritually centered people (see The Reality Of The Original Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ).  Unlike the Jews, the Essenes were strict vegetarians who totally rejected Temple sacrifice and worship and looked to the Teacher of Righteousness (aka Logos/Son of God/True Prophet) within them as their sole Teacher (see The One Teacher).   In making reference from the Essene foundation that evolved into the Ebionites, the statement was made by Dead Sea Scroll expert Edmund Wilson that  “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...”, is in fact parallel to the statement in the Encyclopedia Britannica where it is written: "Most of the features of Ebionite doctrine were anticipated in the teachings of the earlier Qumran sect, as revealed in the Dead Sea Scrolls. They believed in one God and taught that Jesus was the Messiah and was the true prophet mentioned in Deuteronomy 18:15. They rejected the Virgin Birth of Jesus, instead holding that he was the natural son of Joseph and Mary. The Ebionites believed Jesus became the Messiah because he obeyed the Jewish Law. They themselves faithfully followed the Law, although they removed what they regarded as interpolations in order to uphold their teachings, which included vegetarianism, holy poverty, ritual ablutions, and the rejection of animal sacrifices. The Ebionites also held Jerusalem in great veneration" (Encyclopedia Britannica ).   The acknowledgement of biblical scholars and the Britannica not only demonstrated the important connection between the Essenes and Therapute with the Ebionite Nazirenes, but also the fact that in the same way that the Essenes used Biblical Hebrew Characters in the composition of their scriptures, these same authors also created the Original New Covenant Gospels in Biblical Hebrew Characters (see The Original Spiritual Language Of The Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#OriginalLanguage ).   Add to this the statement in the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Gibbon notes that the teachings of Jesus was “…embraced by great numbers of the Therapeutae, or Essinians…”, and wrote that: “Le Clerc (Hist. Ecclesiast p. 477, 535) seems to have collected from Eusebius, Jerome, Epiphanius, and other writers, all the principle circumstances that relate to the Nazarenes or Ebionites. The nature of their opinions soon divided them into a stricter and milder sect; and there is some reason to conjecture that the family of Jesus remained members, at least, of the latter and more moderate party”.   Thus, the mother and father, as well as the brothers and sisters of the historical man Jesus, all rejected the allegorical portrayal of the Virgin Birth.   

Islam came into being because of the massive corruption of Christianity by the Church of Rome (see http://Islam.Ebionite.com ).  Islam was strongly influenced and drawn from an Ebionite foundation.  And like the Ebionites, the original Muslims understood that the historical man Jesus was not God incarnate (see The Ebionite Nazirenes http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#Ebionite ) -- and presented to the seeker/disciple the path for the prodigal sons and daughters to return to the Edenic Kingdom within them.  

In the same way that the Jews and the Gentiles were too carnal in their thinking to understand that the Logos or Son of God is at the Core of human consciousness -- and can only be found by living the necessary Consecrated Life in TheWay -- neither were the carnal Muslims able to comprehend that the Logos who they portrayed as the Prophet, is the same teaching on the True Prophet that must be the seekers one and only Teacher (see The One Teacher).   And in the same way that the Gentiles were too carnal to comprehend that the man Jesus became At-One with the the Son of God (Logos) that was within him (see At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ) -- at the Core of their Inner Consciousness --  the Muslims were too carnal to understand the difference between the man Mohammed and the Indwelling True Prophet.    In the same way that the man Jesus was not the (Logos) Son of God, neither was Mohammed the True Prophet. 

  The Universal Paths of TheWay: At their advent, all (genuine) religions have the same goal and purpose -- i.e., to provide the prodigal sons and daughters the necessary self-knowledge of the Natural Laws and Higher Soul-Realities to make the return journey from this, the Far Country/Outer Darkness -- which enables them to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination that is their True Source of Being.  As the religious teachings are embraced by a larger number of people, they must be made more practical and common to be adopted by the cultural mind-set of a larger number of people who lack the necessary mental development to comprehend the higher reality of man's Soul and Spiritual natures.  Which is exactly why Paul profoundly stated to the very people who he had personally taught the Gospel message: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3).   Writing to the body of confirmed and baptized believers who he stated had received all truth and knowledge pertaining to the elementary "traditions" of Christ: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor 2:14).  What this means is that even after Paul had personally taught the congregation of baptized believers the Gospel teachings, that if he had even attempted to convey to them the spiritual meaning of the Gospel that is and continues to be beyond their natural organic comprehension, they would have rejected what he was even attempting to convey to them as utter "foolishness".  Why?  Because the mind or organic "natural" man is too immature and undeveloped, to understand his own higher Soul and Spiritual reality.   And the primary purpose of the Gospel was to enable the believer to "overcome" organic human limitations, thereby enabling them to begin to receive "...the hidden manna" (Rev 2:17) that can only be received by those who develop the necessary spiritual maturity to comprehend man's higher Soul-Reality.

To understand man's inherent organic blindness to his own higher Soul-Reality, he must understand what is meant by the term that Paul used when he described the very people who he had himself taught who were incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom when he portrayed them as being of a "natural" organic level of mind and consciousness?   The Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary writes with respect to the meaning of the word in the original Greek language: "natural man—literally, 'a man of animal soul'."  Further,  the Treasury Of Scriptural Knowledge states of this ignored and profound statement at 1 Cor 2:14 which reads (quoting Paul): "But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" -- wherein the proper interpretative-meaning of Paul's words with respect to the reality of what is portrayed by Paul as the natural man is then presented: [Psuchikos,] the animal man, one who lives in a natural state, and under the influence of his animal passions; for [psuche] means the inferior and sensual part of man, in opposition to the [nous] understanding, or [pneuma,] the spirit. And this is not only true -- but is a fact of life that all mystics and enlightened souls must deal with when interacting with organic man.   Which is exactly why Paul profoundly stated to the very people who he had personally taught the Gospel message: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3).   Stating to the body of confirmed and baptized believers who he stated had received all truth and knowledge pertaining to the elementary "traditions" of Christ: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor 2:14).  Man's earthly consciousness is drawn from the lower three kingdoms, which is ruled over by his animal nature (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature  http://SoulSelf.org#AnimalNature ).  ALL RELIGIONS  must therefore begin the process of higher development and transformation, by providing allegorical myths and folklore that can be embraced by the multitude of people -- employing catalysts embedded in the text that begin the process of connecting man's natural organic consciousness with his higher Soul and Spiritual Natures -- developing those attributes of mind that enables the faith-based believers to begin the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening -- that enables man as the prodigal son or daughter to enter into a Coverture-Union with his Higher Soul-Self -- and Ultimately with the Logos/Son of God (see Coverture-Marriage - Was Jesus God? http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CovertureMarriage ).  

Universal Corruption of all religious paths: All religions universally become corrupted, because man in his three-dimensional condition of mind, cannot comprehend his own higher Soul and Spiritual reality.  He therefore creates man-made dogmatic doctrines that attempt to explain what is beyond his comprehension, so long as he fails to transform his organic natural consciousness.  Others adopt these man-made dogmatic doctrines, which inhibit and obstruct the necessary process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening that will enable him to comprehend his own higher Soul and Spiritual Reality.  The path of Judaism was to become all that is personified in Spiritual Israel -- i.e., seek the Exodus from the slavery to this world that is achieved when the seeker is able to crossover the inner barrier which is allegorically portrayed as the Jordan River, and enter the Promised Land within them.   In the same way that Jacob struggled all night with the Laws (angel), and became Israel when he prevailed over the Laws (Spiritual Torah), the path of Muslims was though the inner Jihad (struggle with the Laws) to make the Journey by Night to the Distant Mosque in Spiritual Mecca that was not of this world.   The requirement for all Muslims to make the journey to Mecca, was not the Mecca of this world -- but rather, the journey within to Spiritual Mecca that is not of this world -- whereby the True Muslim could enter the Distant Mosque that is not of this world -- which would then enable the Muslim seeker to learn directly from the Indwelling True Prophet (see The One Teacher).   Thus, the Qur'an was very quickly corrupted -- a faux-mosque was built on the site of the Temple Dome -- and this faux-mosque was then portrayed as the Distant Mosque -- and in the same way that the Gentiles were too carnal to understand the difference between the man Jesus and the Indwelling (Logos) Son of God, the Muslims were too carnal to understand the portrayal of the Distant Mosque in Spiritual Mecca within them, and the fact that the True Prophet was not the man Mohammad -- but very much, the One Teacher they were supposed to seek out within them. 

In much the same way the focus of the Eastern religions was through meditation and seeking out an Ascended Master.  BUT, when rightly understood, the Ascended Master was not another man or religious authority in this world -- but rather, the Ascended Master is the person's own Higher Soul-Self -- in Sanskrit portrayed as their Atman.  Quoting the Wikipedia: "Ātman is a Sanskrit word that means inner self, spirit, or soul. In Hindu philosophy, especially in the Vedanta school of Hinduism, Ātman is the first principle, the true self of an individual beyond identification with phenomena, the essence of an individual".   In the Ebionite Nazirene teachings of TheWay, I portray the Sanskrit word Atman as the person's Higher Soul-Self (see http://SoulSelf.org ).  And before a person can become At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God (see  At-One With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ), they must first over come their own duality by entering into a Coverture-Union with their Higher Soul-Self/Atman.   And this is a requirement of Natural Laws that is Universal across the spectrum of all religions.  

From a Christian perspective, the seeker and follower of the man Jesus was supposed to travail in TheWay -- overcoming the Laws by picking up their own cross -- and using the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge, entering though the "narrow strait gate" within them and gaining entrance to the Inner Kingdom -- thereby enabling them to learn and be taught directly from the Indwelling (Logos) Son of God (see The One Teacher).    Thus, at the core, all three religions present the same Universal Path of TheWay which is not at all understood by the body of believers who are too carnal to understand the Inner Reality of the Soul and the True Prophet (a.k.a. Logos/Son of God/Teacher of Righteousness/True Prophet).   

Jesus taught that one must seek the Kingdom within -- i.e., "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 enter the Kingdom, is further demonstrated in Jesus' condemnation of the blind religious leaders as seen in the words: "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to" (Matt 23:13 NIV).  Which means that the Kingdom of God is not something that will come if we wait for it -- but rather, it is a reality which man must seek and find -- within himself.

In the Bible translation known as The Message, the above reality of Jesus' words with respect to the usage of the Key of Knowledge is portrayed in true clarity.   In this translation when Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him and said: "If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you" (John 8:31-32 TheMessage) -- and once again, neither Christian or Jew who have thrown away the Key of Knowledge can understand these words which are of the utmost importance.   Jesus didn't say that they would believe the truth -- or that they would discern what they believed would be dogmatic truth out of the scriptures or some book written by other men -- but rather, Jesus conveyed to them that if they follow in TheWay, that they "...will experience for yourselves the truth, ...and it is this SELF-EXPERIENCED TRUTH that...will free you" from the error and ignorance that consumes the people of this world -- and especially the blind guides who portray themselves as rabbis,  teachers, clergy, religious leaders and authorities.     

Taking the above one step further, I fully realize that many Bible translations simply refuse to interpret Luke 17:21 correctly.   In analysis of this great biblical controversy, Robertson’s Word Pictures of the New Testament writes: “What Jesus says to the Pharisees is that they, as others, are to look for the kingdom of God within themselves, not in outward displays and supernatural manifestations. It is not a localized display ‘Here’ or ‘There.’ It is in this sense that in Luke 11:20 Jesus spoke of the kingdom of God as ‘come upon you,’ speaking to Pharisees”.   The article then goes on to add that the only other instance of the Greek word “entos” being used in the New Testament, is at Matthew 23:26, where the Pharisees are told to clean “the inside of the cup”.   Moreover, the Wescott and Hort Greek text, as well as most other authorities, render the translation of this word: “inside of you is”.   Which means that the original teachings of TheWay was a system whereby the seeker/disciple takes the yoke of Messiah/Christ upon themselves -- picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay -- which enables the disciple to enter through the "narrow gate" and dwell in the Kingdom, while still physically alive in the body -- overcoming the division of heaven and earth within the person -- i.e., the Lord commanded his followers to "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NIV).    Because the Church threw away the Key of Knowledge, and adopted pagan dogmatic doctrines of belief, the Christian world sits idly complacent on the side of the "broad-way  ...that leads to destruction" -- giving lip service and worshiping their brother, that they must themselves imitate, in order to enter into Life.    And it was for this reason that the Adam Clark Commentary stated that if the original Gospel portrayal of the historical man Jesus was correct, that "...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless"!!! (see The Ten Words).

The Spiritual Diaspora: Neither Jew, Christian or Muslim can make the required Journey in TheWay and gain entrance into the Kingdom.   While their scriptures have been severely corrupted, the Source and Spiritual Essence of all three religions have been restored in the publication of the Original Teachings at http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com -- i.e., “My teaching is not My own, Jesus replied. It comes from Him who sent Me. If anyone desires to do His will, he will know whether My teaching is from God or whether I speak on My own.…" (John 7:16).   Which means that ANYONE who seeks the Kingdom within -- fulfilling the Laws of God within their own mind -- living the necessary Consecrated Life in TheWay -- will be taught the Truth directly from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet/Teacher of Righteousness.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Master Index:  The Index of Nazirene Ebionite web sites and the Original Teachings of TheWay  
 

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

 
 

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

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

 
 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 
 
 

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

 
 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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