What the essence of the New Covenant teachings proclaim
is that, in the life of the genuine disciple of the Light, the Lord Himself must
be our Only Teacher -- and it is only the Lord Himself that can reveal to us the
threefold nature of the Word, the Holy Books that we call Scriptures, as well as
every aspect of the life we are presently living. Once this reality is properly understood, we can then
begin to discern the difference between the true shepherd of the people -- the
true church manifest in this world -- and the true wise man from whom we must
seek to learn from. The
genuine shepherd of the flock does not preach the gospel -- or teach the meaning
of the scriptures -- but rather, the genuine shepherd teaches by shining his
light, and living that pattern for his brothers and sisters to see and emulate,
that they too may come into the Presence of the Lord and learn the Mysteries of
Creation. Thus, the man of
true wisdom understands the truth of Origen’s words where he states that we
already know before we begin to learn -- and thus assists the flock in opening
the mind to the indwelling revelation of the Word.
In an honest appraisal of the scriptures the Rev. Charles
Spurgeon wrote in his autobiography: “The system of truth revealed in the
Scriptures is not simply one straight line, but two; and no man will ever get a
right view of the gospel until he knows how to look at the two lines at once....
Two truths cannot be contradictory to each other... and it is only my folly that
leads me to imagine that these two truths can ever contradict each other”
(Charles H. Spurgeon, Autobiography Vol. 1: The Early Years. pp. 173, 174).
Rev. Spurgeon could not bring the two lines of Gospel
Truth together -- speaking of them as his “folly” to even imagine
that two of God's teachings could contradict each other.
Yet, Rev. Spurgeon makes an astute and honest observation that, to their
own demise, few Christians throughout history have been willing to admit.
It is absolutely necessary for us to come to terms with the fact that
truth is not only paradoxical, but that in our natural-carnal state, we are
unable to bring these paradoxes together.
In fact, this wide-eyed perception of reality is so important, that we
can never progress beyond the very limited point we are presently at, until we
realize this great truth. Why?
Because it is in the realization of what Spurgeon calls his ”folly”
that we begin to open our minds to the reality that exists beyond the physical
barrier of this world.
What Rev. Spurgeon failed to understand is that this same
dilemma has plagued mankind since the very dawn of time itself.
The Bible, as with all of life, contains an uncountable number of
paradoxes -- paradoxes that on the surface appear to oppose each other because
we cannot harmonize and balance the two opposing truths -- and these two
opposing lines are consciously built into the text of the scriptures.
Moreover, the two lines of truth that Rev. Spurgeon writes about can
never be resolved, because he was missing the third element to the equation.
It is the presence of this third great truth -- the one that brings the
two conflicting and contradicting lines together into an abiding harmony and
oneness -- and the means to perceive it, that we must strive to embrace in our
lives if we are to confront the root cause of our own limitations.
Thus, Rev. Spurgeon perceived the presence of the Key of Knowledge in its
opposite polarities (positive/negative, male/female), but lacked the third
element to the equation that unlocked the Mysteries of God that had the power to
harmonize and merge the many paradoxes of both the Bible and Creation itself.
Because we continue in the doctrinal legacy and mindset
of men such as Constantine and Justinian, and embrace a quasi-Darwinist
perception of life, we permit our children to be instructed by an educational
system that not only does not possess the Key of Knowledge, but attempts to
negate the polarities of the threefold forces of Creation through a false vision
of political correctness. We
therefore embrace a culture that is in total conflict with the Key of Knowledge
-- we worship in churches that parallel the same exact flaw that Jesus condemned
in the Sadducees and Pharisees -- and we continue to perceive life through the
limitations of an intellect that utilizes less than ten percent of its
potential. Moreover, if
individual parents even attempt to live and teach their children in accordance
with the genuine fundamentals of New Covenant teachings, and imbue them with a
vision of the threefold essence of themselves, the scriptures, and Creation, we
have empowered the government to take custody away from these parents.
In view of this fact, how can we call ourselves a free people?
How can we even begin to call ourselves Christian?
The truth is that we are neither free, and neither are we Christian in
the genuine meaning of the word!
If these allegations are true, and we in fact obstruct
and inhibit the parents who even attempt to convey to their own children the
true threefold reality of both the scriptures and Creation, while we continue to
live in accordance with the doctrines of carnal men, do we really believe that
we will be rewarded with the gift of eternal life or any part of the promise of
the New Covenant? Moreover,
to simply reject what I am saying without investigating the facts in the
endeavor to know the truth of the matter for ourselves, must be viewed as being
synonymous with playing Russian Roulette with a fully loaded gun! There was a valid reason why Jesus warned us that man
in his natural organic state is blind to man’s true reality -- blind to the
true meaning of the scriptures -- and blind to the manner he must live in order
to walk in The Way!
What few of us are able to realize is that these two
lines of truth that Rev. Spurgeon could not reconcile is in fact the greatest
moving factor throughout every aspect of our lives -- from the seemingly
smallest coincidental random occurrence, to the most paramount and decisive
incidents that mold our every expression of life itself. To exist in a state of ignorance with respect to the
impact of these two, and ultimately threefold forces upon every interaction of
our lives, is to be totally ignorant of the very meaning and purpose of life
itself. And yet, we educate
our children, and promulgate our doctrines of belief, and attempt to live out
our lives without any awareness or knowledge whatsoever of these two dominant
major factors with which everything else we depend upon in the process of
decision making is subservient to this ultimate defining reality that we fail to
When the scriptures convey the idea that natural man is
spiritually blind to his own greater reality, the very essence of this blindness
is manifest in our failure to even be conscious of the all-encompassing impact
these two lines of truth manifest in an uncountable number of forms that are
simply beyond the ability for the average person to contemplate.
From a biblical perspective, what we call satanic influence is indicative
of a lack of comprehension and perception of these two forces at work in our
lives, and our failure to apply the third force -- which is the Key -- to bring
our life into a state of Oneness.
From a biblical perspective, it is Satanic to squander
away one’s essence of life on things of no meaning.
Why? Because in order
to know the true being that we are -- i.e., to know our soul and spiritual
natures -- is the very purpose and reason for life in this realm.
To squander away our vital life-force on things of no value, and never
come to know the essence of the spiritual being that we truly are -- and as the
offspring of God, such a frivolous life is synonymous with living the life of a
fallen god -- this condition that is paramount among the people today is
The biblical reality that we fail to understand is that
everyone who fails to manifest and utilize the Key of Knowledge to unlock the
threefold nature of man and Creation is his life, is under the dominion of
Satan. The religion of Jesus
was one where the genuine disciple was not of this world, which meant that he
was in harmony and at one with his essence of inner being.
His expression of religion was one of spiritual manifestation, and had
little in common with the traditional philosophical-redemptive religion of the
masses of carnally minded believers who dwell under the dominion of the god of
What this means is that the carnally minded sects of Jews
known as the Sadducees and Pharisees who called themselves the chosen people,
were controlled by the forces of Satan.
People whose consciousness is of this world and who dwell under the
dominion of Satanic influence, cannot be the chosen people of the One Eternal
God who is the Source of all Being. In
like manner, the Church that called itself Christian that was born in the fourth
century was in reality the Church of Satan. In the words of the Apostle: “Howbeit we speak
wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the
princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a
mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our
glory” (1 Cor 2:6-7 KJV).
To understand the Satanic reality the Apostle is warning
us about, we must first understand the conditions that the Apostle openly
condemns in a very non-politically correct fashion.
It is imperative that we ask the question: How can Paul make the
statement that all wisdom that is embraced by the intellectuals, scientists and
philosophers of this world is in error, and will come to “nought”?
The answer lies in the fact that without regard to how logical and
rational the wisdom of this world sounds to us, it is always in error because
being three-dimensional, it is incomplete.
What we fail to understand today as we question the validity of Paul’s
words, is the fact that the Apostle can universally condemn all wisdom of the
philosophers of this world because being of a natural mind with its congenital
ten percent limitations, each has failed to utilize the Key of Knowledge in
By virtue of the limitations of our own three-dimensional
perception, when we study the scriptures we fail to perceive the overshadowing
significance that these two lines of seemingly opposing truth present within
every concept that is conveyed to the reader -- and thus the consequential
reality of Spurgeon’s words when he wrote what is perhaps the most important
advice to all who open the Bible that “…no man will ever get a right view
of the gospel until he knows how to look at the two lines at once”.
Moreover, these two lines of truth are merely emblematic of the greater
flaw in our natural vision that ultimately encompasses every aspect of what we
think and comprehend throughout every experience that embraces every solitary
moment of our lives from birth to death and beyond.
The looming problem that is an obstacle for every
Christian when they open the scriptures is the reality that there is nothing in
the Bible that can even be comprehended without a very thorough and genuine
knowledge of the impact of the workings of these two lines of truth -- with the
problem being that because of our present-day quasi-Darwinist mindset, few
Christians today are prepared to even contemplate with respect to the dynamic
design of the essence of genuine original New Covenant thought. When it is realized that the very term Christian
denotes one who is of an enlightened state of mind because of the Anointing they
have received, then it must also be realized that the present spiritual poverty
that envelopes the modern believer and causes him to cling to faith and belief
in doctrines not fully understood, has been brought about because we permit
secular philosophers, counterfeit religious authorities, and worldly social
re-engineers to dominate the manner in which we think!
Again, the root cause that natural man is almost totally oblivious to, is
the fact that it does not matter at all as to what we believe, so long as what
we believe is not in absolute harmony with the embodiment of these two lines of
truth -- and the reality that Truth cannot even be envisioned or contemplated so
long as we continue to ignore these two lines of truth that impact every element
of both the Bible and life itself.
When we do as the great majority of our churches today,
and close our eyes to the words of Rev. Spurgeon where he warns us of the two
lines of truth in the scriptures that appear to conflict with each other -- two
lines that even he, a well respected biblical authority could not reconcile --
the reality of which continues to haunt the church to the degree that no amount
of Bible study can bring these two lines together into one harmonious accord --
our indolence with respect to pursuing the resolution of the great universal
dilemma that the Apostle warns us of, will only bring about our own demise and
spiritual death. Perhaps more
importantly is the fact that from the perspective of the essence of New Covenant
teachings that was placed into the hands of the disciples in the first century
of our Common Era, without the knowledge of the workings of these two lines of
truth, one cannot be born into the next level of being that Jesus taught was
absolutely necessary to enter the Kingdom, and the faithful flock cannot walk in
The Way and become a body of spiritually mature Christians.
Yet, without a doubt, the person today who preaches the gospel, or
believes the gospel, is unable to bring these two conflicting lines of truth
Without the application of the Key of Knowledge which Jesus taught and
revealed to his disciples, it is impossible!
Once properly understood, the universal flaw of the
natural mind of man can be observed in Jesus’ condemnation of the Jewish sects
of the Sadducees and Pharisees. Where
we attempt to doctrinally assign this condemnation to the rejection of Jesus by
these sects of secular/carnal Jews, we entrap ourselves in the same exact bonds
of servitude when we fail to perceive the true nature of the allegation that
The Sadducees and Pharisees failed to recognize the
Messiah manifest in the world, because they failed to properly utilize the Key
of Knowledge and perceive their own soul and spiritual natures -- which natures
has the ability to learn directly from the Son of God who dwells in the inner
most Kingdom that can be accessed by each of us who goes beyond the congenital
limitations of our physical nature. Thus,
because the Sadducees and Pharisees remained very much attached to the elemental
powers of this world, they were in reality impostors when they proclaimed
themselves to be the chosen people of the One Eternal God.
Moreover, once we begin to understand what is being conveyed in the
scriptures, we then are able to begin to perceive that regardless of what the
impostors call themselves, this condition is prevalent among mankind whenever
man permits himself to be ruled by his carnal nature.
Moreover, regardless of the name of the religious-philosophical or
secular-philosophical schools they embrace, the Apostle is correct when he warns
that they will always be in error because of the congenital limitation of mind
that is ruling over their perception and understanding.
It is the Key of Knowledge that enables us to merge
together the seemingly opposing paradoxes and conflicting elements of truth in
our lives. When we fail to
utilize this Key that Jesus placed in the hands of his genuine disciples, we
will always see conflict and disharmonious religious/secular philosophy in the
world. The problem that Rev.
Spurgeon noted is correct -- and from a carnal perception, the truths presented
in the body of the scriptures not only conflict, but often directly oppose each
other. As an example: From
the perspective of the majority of the people who are alive today, the title of
a book entitled Reincarnation, the Key to Christianity, would appear to be in
Because the concept of reincarnation does not really apply.
In the words of St. Jerome (340-420): “The doctrine of
transmigration (reincarnation) has been secretly taught from ancient times to
small numbers of people, as a traditional truth which was not to be divulged”
(Hyeronym., Epistola ad Demetriadem; Quoted in Reincarnation an east-west
anthology by Joseph Head and S.L. Cranston).
Why? Why was this
teaching only presented to a small number of Christians as a traditional truth,
and not to everyone? Because
it is our essence -- our soul -- that has existed since the dawn of time that
reincarnates -- while the person we are in this world is limited to what we
accomplish and make of ourselves in our present life.
Rev. Spurgeon could not bring the two lines of truth
together because, like the majority of modern Christians, he lacked an
understanding of the pre-existence of the soul -- and it is of this storehouse
of inner knowledge that Origen made reference to when he said that each of us “…possess
knowledge before we really [begin to] learn”. Even
if it were possible for Rev. Spurgeon to study the scriptures for a thousand
years, unless he began to apply the Keys of Knowledge in his life, and succeeded
in overcoming the barrier between his physical, soul and spiritual natures, the
enigma of life and the scriptures would remain an elusive and impossible
endeavor for him to bring together with respect to the two lines of seemingly
conflicting truth that he observed in the pages of the Bible.
Moreover, what this also means is that regardless of how faithful and
sincere a Christian you are today, unless you embrace the Keys of Knowledge in
your life, you cannot walk in the footsteps of the Lord in The Way, and you
cannot gain access to the True Spiritual Church of Christ, or enter into the
Kingdom that he promised to those who would relinquish their servitude to the
elemental and political powers of this world, and become his genuine disciples.
Is this rather profound declaration cruel and
uncompassionate? Do you
reject this declaration because you believe that God/Jesus loves you, and He
wouldn’t permit such a fate to befall those who love Him. The problem has nothing to do with love -- but rather,
the failure of the people to put into practice the Commandments of the Lord in
their life. Those who truly
love the Lord, are those who keep his words and Commandments as an intimate
expression of their every experience of life.
In the biblical account of the prodigal son it is seen that the Father
loved and greatly rejoiced as the return of his son who was dead, but again
became alive. Ultimately, it
was the love for his son that motivated the Father to give His son his
inheritance -- permit him to squander away his inheritance on riotous living in
the far country -- allow his son to be in servitude to the citizen of that realm
-- in the knowledge that when the time came that the son returned by his own
volition, that he would return in the manner of a truly perfected soul.
Because we remain attached to this world, and therefore
lack the knowledge of our own pre-existent soul, there exists great voids in our
thinking and perception of the Word.
Because our understanding and vision of life is so short-term, carnal and
limited, we are unable to even contemplate the Higher Wisdom of God.
We say to ourselves that God would not permit us to be deceived -- God
would not permit the church that calls itself the Church of Christ to fall into
error -- and yet, we close our eyes to the very reason why the Father permitted
his son to fall into a state of servitude to the citizen of the far country.
That our Heavenly father permits us to learn from the error of our ways,
and reap the results of our own disobedience in our lives, has nothing to do
with the question of His Love for us!
The problem which is brought to light in the example of
Rev. Spurgeon’s inability to harmonize the two lines of truth, is emblematic
of the congenital defect that plagues all of mankind! In order to overcome his dilemma, he would have had to
go beyond the natural limitation of the carnal mind, and look into the spiritual
realms of existence where the two lines are brought together in harmony and
oneness. Rev. Spurgeon was a
man of great faith and belief in the Gospel -- but like the modern believer, he
lacked an important key that enabled the Christians of the first century to
easily answer what appeared to him as folly in his inability to perceive the two
lines of truth together. Why?
Because the flawed foundation of the very structure of beliefs he
embraced, remained very much in accord with the quasi-Darwinist thinking of the
fourth-century Church of Rome.
Unlike most other preachers of the gospel, Rev. Spurgeon
was an honest man. He
outright admitted to his listeners and readers that there were elements of the
gospel message that was beyond his comprehension.
What he said was: This was the best I can do, as he acknowledged the
flaws in his perception of the Word.
Perhaps it is a tribute to his greatness that he did not embrace the
theology of many of his peers, and attempt to negate one biblical truth by
exclusively adopting its opposite paradoxical polarity.
What he said is that the Bible contains these two truths that appear to
conflict with each other, and it was his own fault -- i.e. “his own
folly” -- that he could not see them working together in one harmonious
Why did Rev Spurgeon take this position? Unlike many other preachers of the gospel, he did not
choose to diminish the position of God.
He did not say that God appears irrational -- but rather, he acknowledged
that the movement of the Hand of God was beyond his very limited understanding.
He recognized that it took a greater mind than his to bring these two
truths together -- and that God would not have ordained them, unless they both
were true. Unlike the
majority of religious authorities, he understood that to ignore one truth and
embrace the other, is to do injustice to the Word of God.
To close one's eyes to either of the truths, is to close one's eyes to
the Genuine Gospel message.
Again we can use the example of the Jehovah’s
Witnesses, the Baptists, Pentecostals, the Unitarians, the Quakers, and the
mainline Protestant sects who all read the same Bible, and each perceives a
different and often conflicting message in the scriptures. Moreover, each religious sect clings to one biblical
teaching, and disregards those opposing teachings that are embraced by these
other religious sects. It is
not that the Jehovah’s Witnesses choose to embrace doctrines of belief that
are often seen in direct opposition to those held by the majority of Evangelical
Christians -- but rather, that they see a line of truth that is ignored by the
Evangelical Christian, and vice versa.
With respect to the two lines of truth that Rev. Spurgeon
wrote about -- both lines of truth exist -- and he was not wrong in what he saw
in the scriptures -- but rather, that what he saw was incomplete.
In his wisdom he was able to recognize the fact that there was a great
void in his understanding that was responsible for his inability to comprehend
how these two lines harmonized together into One Truth.
Moreover, the true depth of his wisdom is demonstrated in the fact he
recognized that if he was to be truly faithful to Christ, then he must not
embrace one of these lines of truth, while ignoring the other.
Do you desire to truly be a faithful disciple of Christ?
Do you truly desire to perceive the Secrets of Creation?
Do you desire to understand the being you truly are in light of the
Biblical revelation that each of us is the direct offspring of the One Eternal
God? The modern Christian who
is in search of the higher revelation of the Word must view the issues raised by
Rev. Spurgeon as emblematic of a pattern -- a pattern they must begin to embrace
in order to fulfill the spiritual requirements of the Gospel. In the same way that Rev. Spurgeon did not have an
answer to man's dilemma, neither do the great many authorities who attempt to
teach us the mysteries of life right up to our present time. This is true of those who embrace the modern day gospel
in the form of the simple faith that Paul refers to as the “milk” --
and this is especially true of the educational systems we send our children to.
What I will demonstrate very clearly is that the Word
which Jesus taught is not only revealed in a “threefold” revelation
of body, soul and spirit, but that the pre-existence of the soul is present as
the dominating factor in every revelation of New Covenant concept of thought.
In fact, from our modern perspective, understanding the pre-existence of
the soul is synonymous with finding the proverbial missing link that connects
every aspect of life and the Gospel together with the biblical vision of the
Destiny of mankind in the symbolism of the prodigal sons of the One Eternal
Father God. Further, once this great truth is embraced, all the
mysteries of life begin to fall into place, and Christianity is again restored
to its rightful place as the revealer of the Light to the inquiring mind of
With respect to the deeper meaning of the scriptures,
statements of fact can be plainly set forth: Christians in search of the Truth
must begin to perceive the depth and wisdom of the revealed Word in its
threefold revelation. Man
does not have it within his power to corrupt the Word of God regardless what he
does with the religious forms and sacred writings of this world. With respect to the very Pagan Church that came into
existence in the fourth century, Jesus did not come and give man the Key to the
secrets of life, only to have his efforts undermined when carnal men with a very
limited perception of reality attempt to interpret what was beyond their
understanding. Going one step
further, if we believe in the God of the New Testament, and we believe the
Bibles assertion that God is able to perceive the hearts of men, then we must
also realize that God is able to see the heart of all things -- which means that
we must recognize that Jesus did not condemn the manmade doctrines of the carnal
Jewish sects of the Sadducees and Pharisees, only to ordain very similar manmade
carnal doctrines by the Gentile Pagan Christians.
Modern archeological discoveries prove conclusively that what Jesus
condemned was manmade doctrines -- regardless of their source of origination.
Jesus condemned one man placing himself in the position of a teacher over
his brother wherein he instructs others about God and the Mysteries of the
Kingdom -- and his condemnation is applied equally to all who attempt to explain
away the inconsistencies of the scriptures and interpret them in a carnal
The New Covenant is founded upon the principle that there
is One Truth -- and this One Truth can be embraced by all of mankind who desire
to walk in The Way. It’s
all-inclusiveness is perceived not in its unrestricted acceptance of all people
as we falsely believe today -- but rather, that it is indigenous to the soul and
spirit of all people, and can therefore be accessed by all in search of Truth
and Light. The missing link
that our churches are in search of today is in fact the spiritual connection
that was severed by the fourth century Roman Church -- and if the modern
Christian truly embraces the opportunity to be faithful, once the missing link
of the New Covenant is recovered, and the spiritual essence of the Word of God
is restored, the adversarial doctrines that emerged from the historical period
known as the Age of Enlightenment -- i.e., Darwinism, Marxism, Atheism, Secular
Humanism -- all have their very carnal and three-dimensional foundation pulled
out from under them, and they are forced into oblivion.
In fact, these manmade philosophies that are dominant theories in our
present-day society, exist only because religious men in the churches of the
past threw away the Key to Knowledge that Jesus gave to his disciples.
Why? Because, in
accordance with the warnings of Jesus, it is impossible to embrace the Truth,
while simultaneously entering into a covenant with secular Pagan Rome.
The obstacle that confronts the modern Christian is seen
in the reality that in returning to our genuine Gospel spiritual roots, we must
open the inner door to the Kingdom within us.
We cannot accomplish this without an understanding of the two lines of
truth that appear to us as a paradox -- a paradox that seemingly appears to
oppose each other, and is difficult for us to reconcile.
If it is therefore true that we possess a soul that pre-existed our
physical beginning of life in this realm, and a spirit that remains ever near in
the realm of the Presence of God -- then we must also recognize that the answer
to the paradoxical nature of these two lines of truth which the Rev. Spurgeon
observed, as well as all the other paradoxes in life, can only be brought
together as we draw nearer to the Truth from a soul and spiritual perspective.
What this means is that without an understanding of the
pre-existence of the soul, it will be impossible for us to overcome the inherent
barrier of mind that plagues all naturally born men, and inhibits our
understanding of both life and the scriptures. Thus, it is imperative that we begin to come to terms
with one of the great obstacles that confront us, which is seen in the fact that
mankind himself is paradoxical -- i.e., man is imbued with conflicting realities
that are manifest in a paradoxical manner.
What this means is that the truth of one dimension of being appears to
conflict with the truth of another.
Men and women of an elevated spiritual mind have long
warned us that the Mysteries of God are not only difficult, but impossible for
the carnal mind of natural man to understand -- to reject their witness, is to
slam closed the door of Truth. Yet,
by virtue of the fact that we were created in the very image of God, we possess
a depth of inner natures that transcend the limitations of this world -- which
means that we not only simultaneously exist in all worlds and time as can be
envisioned -- but part of our inner self continues to exist at the very core and
Essence of the Source of all of Creation.
That we are able to remain conscious in each of these worlds and realms
of being, is because the same barriers that separate these realms in the outer
world, also exist within ourselves. That
we are capable of simultaneously being conscious of all worlds is brought about
by overcoming the walls of division within our own mind and being.
That we are limited to less than ten percent of our potential of mind, is
directly related to our failure to bridge these inner barriers of mind that
separate the threefold natures within us.
If we are to mature and grow in consciousness and
awareness of man’s higher reality, we must begin to realize that when we gaze
beyond the depth of the surface, truth and reality can begin to appear very
different. As an example:
With respect to the idea that reincarnation could be the key to Christianity,
the great truth which was made reference to by Rev. Spurgeon is seen in the fact
that, from the perspective of the majority of believers, the doctrine of
transmigration has only been secretly taught to the few, because it simply does
not apply in the majority of cases. The
Greek, Eastern, and more modern New Age concept that all people, as they
presently are in this life, reincarnate, is simply a grave misunderstanding of
the spiritual truths that St. Jerome writes were not to be “divulged”
to the body of carnal believers. Why?
Because our concept of reincarnation is flawed.
The idea that the person you are has previously existed -- or that the
person you presently are will live in another life -- is an erroneous
misunderstanding of certain profound truths that are not understood by the
majority of people who believe in the popular doctrine of reincarnation.
Moreover, from this perspective the modern Christian is correct in his
assertion that the popular belief in reincarnation is a grave error.
From the reality of the Word, only those people who are
of a genuine spiritual essence -- i.e., the True Christian and Disciple of the
Light -- can say that they have lived in the past, and will again enter into
this life in the future as in the manner of our understanding of the concept of
reincarnation. The average
person who has not experienced the next stage of birth which Jesus said was
absolutely necessary in order to enter the Kingdom -- i.e., “Verily,
verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom
of God” (John 3:3 KJV) -- the belief in either reincarnation, or even our
continued existence after death, is severely flawed from a New Covenant
perspective. Fundamentally, Jesus’ words were an attempt to convey
a great truth to the mind of carnal man when he warned that if we have not
walked in The Way into Life, then we are walking the broad-way to destruction.
From the perspective of the genuine Christians, there was
no reason to teach a doctrine such as reincarnation or the transmigration of the
soul to the masses of the carnal believers.
Such a doctrine when interpreted from a shallow carnal view, neither
assists them in their walk in The Way, nor is it true from their physical
perspective. They, being
spiritually dead, can neither reincarnate, nor do they enter into the Life that
is promised in the scriptures to those who are totally faithful to the Word.
The reality that confronts the carnal believer is one where if they do
not walk in The Way, then they are walking the road to destruction.
The true void in our thinking can only be realized when
we begin to perceive the flaw and inherent limitations of our quasi-Darwinist
ideas of life and Creation. And
what is this flaw? While pure
Darwinism promotes the concept that only this realm exists, and thus all truth
and ideas must be evaluated from solely a physical perspective, our
pseudo-religious, quasi-Darwinist mindset that is the foundation of our
modern-day church doctrines, states that life begins at conception -- that we
are the person who emerges from this biological event -- and Ultimate Truth can
only be revealed to us from a source external to our being.
The problem is that this foundational mindset it totally opposite from
what the people of the New Covenant believed, and what Jesus taught --
especially to his disciples who the Bible states learned the Mysteries of God
privately from Jesus, “…in the house”.
The reality of man’s plight in this world is that he is
an embryonic image of his pre-existent soul that has entered into this realm in
order to perfect those laws and elements that he must overcome.
In the same way that a fetus is an embryonic copy of its parents, our
mind is an embryonic image of our soul.
In the same way a fetus must grow and mature in accordance with the
pattern of its parents, our mind must grow and mature in the pattern of our
soul. When our mind grows in
the culture of the world, and becomes alienated from our soul, then our life
becomes synonymous with the miscarriage of a fetus whose defect fails to develop
it in accordance with its physical genetic pattern.
That different men and women each possess a vast amount
of greatly differing and sometimes unique abilities, is due to the past
accomplishments of their pre-extent soul.
Because each man-woman is an embryonic image, a number of really
important paradoxes are invoked in their life -- i.e., in one sense, that unique
man-woman has never lived prior to that life, and because he-she is an image of
his-her soul-spiritual natures, he-she can only become real if he-she is able to
develop through the next stages of soul-birth, spiritual-birth, and ultimately
re-enter the Kingdom of God from which the source of man’s being originally
emerged at the beginning of Creation.
In this respect, because we cling to an anti-biblical quasi-Darwinist
philosophy, there are whole dimensions of New Covenant theology that are no
longer understood in our modern day with respect to the absolute need for each
of us to be born again.
Everything in this world is a symbol and form of higher
reality. What that means is
that if we study and investigate the organic patterns that are present in our
lives, we can begin to discern higher truth because we are literally immersed in
the Divine Pattern of Creation. In
the same way that a woman is born with all the eggs she will ever have -- and
only those eggs which become fertilized and are born into this life will ever
become an actual person, we exist in a similar fashion on the Divine scheme of
reality. We have the
potential to become spiritually fertilized and be born into the Life that Jesus
declared was the promise of the New Covenant, but unless we are ready to mature
and leave the womb of Mother Earth, and be born again in the reality of our soul
and spiritual natures, we cannot then emerge into the True Life in the Kingdom
after our time in this realm has expired.
We will not go to Glory -- neither will we be with the Lord -- and this
miscarriage of life from a soul and spiritual perspective has the capacity to
embrace all of the after death realities that man has envisioned -- i.e., some
have called the absence of reality, hell.
As spiritual beings, we dwell in these bodily vessels of
flesh for a reason and purpose -- and if we fail to take advantage of the
opportunity of the life we are presently living, from the perspective of our
soul it will be an opportunity that has been squandered and lost. Not to recognize this great truth is to diminish the
very purpose and design of life itself.
In this respect the Rev. Spurgeon is again correct when
he states that there are two lines of truth, and because the majority of mankind
-- the people the Apostle Paul refers to as “natural” (1 Cor 1,2,3)
-- do not possess a genuine spiritual essence that is manifest in their life, it
is the application of the one line of truth contained in the scriptures where
the Lord taught that they will be forever cut off (Matt 25:46) which will come
to pass, and it is this line that becomes the only reality that can be applied
to them. When Jesus said of the masses of people: “let the dead
bury their dead” (Matt 8:22 KJV) -- those who he spoke of as dead, inherit
the fate of this one line of truth, and not the other.
The problem is that carnal man has altered the gospel
message in order to make it acceptable to his manner of thinking. Those who Jesus called dead, have found fault with the
words of Jesus, and demanded that he change the rules in accordance with their
very carnal perception of life and Creation.
The dead (Christians) have replied to Jesus: We demand that God repent,
and embrace an all-inclusive perception of the Word. We want to live and enjoy the things of this world, and
still be saved and go to heaven when we die!
Yet, what they fail to realize is that in the manner of an egg that has
never been fertilized, from the perspective of the soul’s reality these images
are very much already dead. Why?
In their manner of thinking and lifestyle, they have already locked themselves
out of the Kingdom. The
result is that their physical death is just the final step which has been
brought about when they failed to embrace the opportunity of Life that God has
bestowed upon all men.
From the modern Christian perspective we can reason that
it would be cruel if all those possibilities of life that exist in the form of
an egg in the ovaries of a woman are never given the opportunity of life?
Isn’t this the exact teaching of the modern Roman Catholic Church that
bans birth control, and even male masturbation, because these acts constitute
the denial of life? Wouldn’t a truly compassionate God desire every
potential person to be born, live their lives, and eventually take their place
in the Kingdom? In the same
way that a woman has tens of thousands of eggs that possess the potential to be
born as a person, and yet the opportunity of physical life is only given to the
very few, the same is true with respect to man’s birth into the Kingdom. If anyone is cruel, it is the pseudo-priests and the
philosophers of this world whose false doctrines and teachings rob the person of
the life of its soul. Thus the
words of Jesus: “Yes, woe upon you hypocrites. For you go to all lengths to
make one convert, and then turn him into twice the son of hell you are
yourselves” (Matt 23:15 TLB).
Contrary to modern liberal all-inclusive Christian
doctrine, those who Jesus said are dead cannot be brought to life merely because
the inevitable happens and they physically die.
Again, it is impossible for us to comprehend this greater reality until
we begin to understand ourselves as an embryonic image of our pre-existent soul.
In the same way that each egg that is released into a woman’s womb is
equally living -- equally possess the potential for life -- it is only those
eggs that are fertilized, and grow to maturity, that enter into this life as we
know it. In the manner of an egg with respect to the next stage
of birth, even though these people walk among us, the Bible, which is written
from a soul-spiritual perspective, correctly views these people as being dead --
and in the manner of the unfertilized egg that is eventually expelled from the
woman’s womb, those who are dead because they were never fertilized, and never
evolved through the process of soul and spiritual development, cannot be born
outside of the womb of this world, and neither can they be given the opportunity
to again enter into this life (reincarnate) in the manner envisioned by those
who believe in the doctrine of reincarnation.
What this means is that both the traditional Christian
belief that they will go to Glory without having fulfilled the spiritual
requirements as set forth in the Bible, as well as those who believe in the
doctrine of reincarnation, are equally wrong -- though there are varying degrees
of truth to each of their beliefs when properly understood from a higher
If natural man could envision the Mysteries of God which
the Apostle states is beyond carnal man's comprehension and ability to perceive
in his natural state of being -- i.e., the revelation of the mysteries that are
veiled by the seals which the Prophet Isaiah declared was beyond the vision of
the people -- what natural man would learn is this great profound truth that is
totally in conflict with our modern-day quasi-Darwinist mindset: Only those
people who are themselves in harmony with their pre-existent soul -- Disciples
of the Light that are of a true spiritual essence -- inherit the other line of
truth, and are given the opportunity to reincarnate in the endeavor to serve and
grow in the Grace of the Gospel. The
majority of people do not go to Glory in the Kingdom, and neither do they
reincarnate in accordance with the common understanding of the term, because in
the manner of an unfertilized egg, they being incomplete, there is no life in
them that is of a genuine essence, and they are therefore said to be dead from a
scriptural and spiritual perspective.
With respect to this next stage of birth Jesus said: “But if you
want to enter into life, keep the commandments” (Matt 19:17 NKJ).
It is not that God judges man with respect to his ability to live in
accordance with a set of laws and rules -- but rather, it is in the living and
keeping of the commandments that brings about the necessary growth with respect
to the next stage of birth. The
problem is very simple: Those who keep the commandments become fertilized with
the essence of their spiritual nature -- those who live in accordance with this
world make themselves temporal, and deprive themselves of Life.
We can perhaps only begin to envision the reality of our
plight in this world if we take a moment to shift our perception of what we see.
If our soul existed prior to our birth in this present life, then the
being we truly are can only be found in the essence of our inner-self, and not
what our culture has molded us into.
The more we embrace the culture and mindset of this world, and permit
ourselves to become alienated from our indwelling pre-extent soul and spirit,
the more counterfeit we become. To
what degree, then, we are alive from a spiritual perspective, is directly
related to what degree we reflect our soul -- i.e., the being that we truly are
before entering into this present life.
What the modern Christian must begin to understand is
that it is not that their doctrines of faith is necessarily wrong -- but rather,
incomplete -- and it is for this reason why Paul calls the testimony of Christ
the “milk”. In
order to develop into a state of spiritual maturity we must recognize that great
wisdom of the Apostle Paul when he wrote throughout his Epistles that it is
impossible for the carnal mind of man to comprehend the Mysteries of God -- and
that man must himself become spiritual, in order to receive the Spiritual Gospel
of Christ. What he is
proclaiming to us is the absolute need for us to be born into the next stage of
(soul/spirit) development. Thus,
we must become nourished by the milk of the simple faith as we mature enough to
receive the solid meat of the Mysteries of God that can only be received via
man’s spiritual nature.
With respect to the title of this book (Reincarnation,
the Key to Christianity), there are people in the world today of whom it can be
said in the true sense of the word that they have been reincarnated.
This is true because they have in their present life manifested the
genuine essence of their pre-existent soul -- and from the perspective of their
innate spiritual nature, they are to varying degrees alive.
I use the term varying degree, because the process of manifesting our
true nature and self is not necessarily a yes or no reality -- but rather, must
be understood as a gradual process of growth and maturity.
In the same way that a fully developed man or woman is
not born after the egg is fertilized in their mother’s womb, neither is a
person born spiritually by virtue of their philosophical association with a very
carnal perception of the Gospel message.
In the same way that a physical man or woman had to evolve through every
stage of development from a fertilized embryo -- fetus -- newborn -- infant --
toddler -- child -- adolescent -- young adult -- in order to take their place as
a mature man or woman, the soul who is able to stand in the presence of God as a
mature and fully formed spiritual being has evolved through every level of
spiritual development. That
we today do not understand the process with regard to what is required to bring
this condition of maturity and perfection about in our lives at present, is not
the fault of God. It is well
defined in the Bible, we just chose to ignore what is written -- which in part
was brought about when the Roman Church threw away the Key of Knowledge, and
killed the genuine congregation of the New Covenant.
Thus, mankind has brought this state of unknowing upon himself!
Because we embrace the doctrines of Pagan Rome, which is
found embodied in a quasi-Darwinist vision of nature, we are unable to grasp the
true New Covenant process of spiritual development because we fail to comprehend
that our soul has existed since the very beginning of time.
In not understanding our true spiritual nature, we fail to perceive that
the measure of how real and genuine we are, can only be envisioned in our
relationship to our pre-existent soul -- i.e., whether it can be said of us that
we are alive from a biblical/spiritual perspective.
In the case of the majority of the people who are driven
by their carnal nature, the idea that is championed by modern New Age believers
who falsely assert that they have reincarnated merely because they possess the
spiritual genetics of their soul, and have the appearance of having lived
before, this teaching is fundamentally a flawed doctrine of belief.
While it is true that many people have developed the ability through a
number of different means to detect the lifetimes that their soul has previously
lived, if the person we are at present is bound by the culture and thinking of
this world, rather than a reflection of our soul, then there is nothing of any
real substance that will survive death.
In like manner, even though it appears that we survive death from
the perspective of those who are revived after a Near Death Experience (NDE),
this in like manner is only a partial truth.
What should be truly troubling to the person of faith is the fact that
from a soul perspective, neither is the Atheist totally wrong in his assertion
that the people of this world do not survive death -- and this belief can also
be found in the Bible.
With respect to the New Age believer who learns to use
age-regression techniques to view what they call their past lives, this would be
synonymous with our saying that we see our own selves in the lives of our
physical brothers and sisters. While
the offspring of the same parents share the same genetics as their siblings, it
is true that each child is unique to it’s own self. Therefore, what the New Age adherent sees when he
learns to view what he believes to be his past lives, is in fact other images of
his pre-existent soul that came into being in the manner of his physical
brothers and sisters. Again
in order to even begin to understand the essence of life, we must learn to
embrace the paradoxical nature of Creation.
While it is true that we came into being at conception, it is also true
that the very essence of our being -- i.e., our soul -- has lived before in what
appear to us as other lifetimes. The
question with respect to have we lived before, or will we survive death, can
only be understood from the perspective of to what degree we can manifest our
soul, which is our true self.
Reality can perhaps best be envisioned by injecting a
little science fiction into the equation.
From an X-Files perspective, if we were born into this world as a
reflection and image of our pre-existent soul, and an alien being in the manner
of a body-snatcher took over our life -- displacing and suppressing the person
we truly are with a foreign personality -- when the body dies, and the alien is
released, how much of our life did we actually live during the time when our
true nature was suppressed -- when we existed in a sort of coma -- and some
other being used our body in our absence?
The truth of the matter would be that we were robbed of our life because
the genuine person we were was suppressed -- existing only in a state of
suspended animation -- while an alien being walked in us -- talked in us -- and
used our opportunity of life for their own purposes.
I understand that what is being portrayed in this analogy
is not a pretty picture. The
predicament is that our whole perception of life is flawed because it is based
upon a quasi-Darwinist vision of creation.
The problem that confronts each of us is seen in the fact that, because
we have begun our understanding of life on the wrong philosophical foundation,
everything we build upon our philosophy is equally defective and flawed.
We therefore reject the words of Jesus, and think of ourselves as being
alive, rather than dead. It is difficult for us to embrace the reality that the
person we have come to be is not genuine -- that in becoming part of our
culture, we have in fact made ourselves an alien to our very own souls -- and
since we exist as little more than a shadow of our real selves -- a
phantom-being who exists as part of the present cultural landscape with only a
hint of the being we truly are by virtue of the tinting of the personality that
we have come to be -- the emerging self-portrait is not the image of ourselves
that we wish to view.
We say that God loves us, so we will be saved.
Yet, many mothers rejoice when they conceive -- they love the child that
they feel growing in their womb -- and yet are unable to change the course of
events when their fetus fails to properly develop and is spontaneously aborted.
In the same way, if you say you love the Lord and you desire to enter
into Life, then the evidence of your love is not in accordance with what you say
-- but rather, your willingness to live and develop your life in accordance with
the Word in order that you might be born into the next world.
Only when we begin to envision the existence of our
pre-existent soul and spiritual nature, are we able to embrace the words of
Jesus when he commanded that we must be in the world and not of it. Only when we comprehend that our physical body is a
vessel that manifests the presence of our soul and spirit in this world, can we
even begin to fulfill the Gospel message in our lives.
Only when we begin to grasp the fact that when we permit ourselves to
become a part of the temporal culture of this world -- a person born in the very
limited consciousness of the timeframe in which we are presently living -- a
being who has been led into the very pit of what is spurious through our
adoption and adherence to a political philosophy that has no place in the true
reality of Creation -- are we able to embrace what is genuine and real.
From a biblical perspective, the result of embracing the philosophy of
this world is an acknowledgment of the fact that we have permitted ourselves to
become a mortal creature who has been so immersed in the mindset and false
thinking of the timeframe in which we presently live, that we have been molded
and reformed into an alien in relation to who we truly are at the essence of our
being. Listen to the true
prophets of this world -- i.e., the Atheists -- and know that if you have any
part of their philosophy or lifestyle, then you will cease to exist when your
opportunity in this life has come to an end.
We can see the great flaw of the doctrines of the
Atheist-prophets imbued in our present-day cultural thinking -- i.e., their
philosophy is founded upon the premise that we came into existence at birth,
that we are nothing more than what we perceive with our physical eyes and
senses, and we are a physical being who originated in this world. The Apostle warns us that they are blind to man’s
higher reality, and their wisdom is foolishness!
Moreover, their very limited wisdom was foolishness in the day of the
Apostle, and remains foolishness to this very day. It is not that the philosopher’s of this world became
more wise -- but rather, that Christians have permitted themselves to become
totally alienated from the spiritual wisdom of the scriptures.
It is not until we begin to perceive ourselves as
spiritual beings who are projected into this realm as an image of our
pre-existent soul, that we can begin to understand both the core teachings of
The Way that Jesus taught, and the obstacles in life that we must overcome. What we must come to realize is the fact that we cannot
alter the original foundational concepts of the New Covenant in order to make
these spiritual truths conform to a quasi-Darwinist mindset, and still be called
the people of The Way. It
does not work! There is only
One Way -- and that is The Way which was Ordained by the Lord!
