It was a typically warm day, and I could feel the breeze of the morning wind on my face. As I gazed around, I could see the fields where we grew our crops. Like a tranquil song, I could hear the sound of the smoothly flowing water in the nearby stream. On the surface everything appeared peaceful…serene. As I took another step and began to walk toward our assembly house where we met for prayer, I abruptly caught a glimmer of movement in the distant brush. Suddenly, the peacefulness of the moment was broken by the gruff voices of soldiers as they scrambled toward our complex. As I looked around, other soldiers began to come into sight -- entering houses and gathering up the people, ushering them toward the center of our community where the assembly house stood.
Somewhere in the distance I heard a young girl’s shrill scream -- a truly frightening scream that pierces to the depth of one’s soul. I heard the thud as a soldier hit her, sending her tumbling to the ground. And as I strained to see, I saw the girl -- a young woman about the age of nineteen -- and I could see the soldiers tearing at her clothes. Like animals, they swarmed all over the people in the manner of blood crazed beasts -- beating the men, raping the women and young girls, as they hoarded everyone into the center of our community.
Do you accept the god of the emperor -- they screamed? Will you pray to Jesus -- and profess allegiance to the religion of the emperor? But this question was only a mere formality -- for the soldiers knew before they even entered the community that we were Ebionites -- a people who it is said were too Christian to be Jews, and too Jewish to be Christian, and very much the direct followers of Yeshua (Jesus), the great Teacher and Prophet who had come to teach mankind The Way. For three hundred years following the crucifixion we had preserved Sacred Teachings of The Way of Life -- and Yeshua himself remained with us even to that very day. The great Teacher and Prophet often visited with us -- teaching and healing in accordance with the promise of the scriptures. But alas, great change was on the horizon -- and I realized that the time had come where another biblical prediction would come to pass -- one that to our own detriment is ignored by a great many believers today. And what was that prediction? The time had come in accordance with the vision of the Apostle Paul when he foretold that in the very near future the True Church of Christ would cease to exist -- as the forces of darkness and the god of this world began to rule the church and reign over the hearts and minds of the people who called themselves Christian.
On that fateful day as I watched in horror at what was taking place in the name of the god Jesus and the religion of the emperor, I saw the soldiers begin to usher the people into our assembly house. Bare breasted young women whose tattered clothes had been torn from their naked bodies by these savage intruders who had violated their innocence, cried as they were dragged along by beastly and unruly animals who masqueraded as human beings. Bloodied and broken men carried their brethren, while the beasts of the Christian emperor jeered them in their struggle. As the soldiers laughed, they barraged the door with furniture and dry wood, threw oil lamps on both the wood that blocked the doors and the thatched roof, and set the building on fire. And as the smoke swirled and the flames engulfed the wooden parts of the structure, the people inside prayed -- prayed for the Light -- and prayed for the forgiveness of those who persecuted them. And in a vision, the whole of the congregation saw Yeshua (Jesus), the prince of peace appear in the mists of the people. And as he opened his mouth to speak, we heard him say: “Be strong, little children, for on this day you will be with me in the Paradise of our Eternal Father”. And as they looked to him, his feet raised two feet off the floor, we saw him totally surrounded by the Light, and each of us could feel the radiation of his Love. In unison we then prayed in the words of our Master and Teacher: “Father forgive them, fore they know not what they do!”
Outside the soldiers celebrated as the smoke-filled building became enveloped in the fire. They had enjoyed the spoils of another successful mission -- and they reasoned that both their emperor and their god Jesus will rejoice over the destruction of the heretics. Thus, if one could take a step back and observe the two worlds that clashed on that fateful day so long ago, one would immediately be struck by the reality of the dual powers that had been brought together. Inside the burning assembly hall with the tormented victims of the god of this world was the Master Yeshua -- the Prince of Peace who had lived as the Son of the Eternal God. On the outside were the soldiers who called themselves Christian -- a people who the Apostle Paul wrote would worship the Prince of Darkness as he sat upon the throne of the church -- and while from an historical perspective these savage and ruthless barbarians called themselves Christian, we must ask if these heathen and bloodthirsty barbaric men were truly the faithful flock of the Church of the New Covenant that was created to be a Light to this world?
As I once again began to move back across the spectrum of time into the present, and I found myself emerging from this episode of reliving the experiences in the life I had previously lived as Matthew, the fourth-century Ebionite Elder, I found myself once again being drawn back into the presence of the Light in my own time. And as I questioned the impact of the events that I had again relived in the memory of a my own more distant past, I remembered the first time I had come into the presence of the Light while in a deep state of prayer and meditation. As with all developments of human potential, the ability to enter into deep states of meditation and inner exploration must be accomplished with much discipline through the ability to release one’s mind from its attachment and focus on this world. Admittedly, it is not easy -- and is a process that must be established and achieved through a great deal of work and practice over the course of time.
I went through my routine of prayer, scripture study, and then a time of
extended reflection, I felt myself letting completely go of the outside world
as I slowly moved into that inner space of tranquil solitude.
Suddenly, I felt myself begin to move inward in consciousness to a
place I had never been before. It
was as if I had been drawn through an inner gateway that I can only describe
as an interior place of abode beyond the barrier of the normal consciousness
that I used in my daily life. Contrary
to those who describe a Near Death Experience where they first find themselves
outside the physical body, it seemed that my state of deep meditation
permitted me to be drawn through an inner gate -- i.e., a sort of tunnel that
connected this world with a parallel realm within which lies concealed from
man’s carnal senses associated with his physical body.
inward at what seemed to be a rapid rate, the place that I felt myself moving
into was well beyond what I would describe as the normal depths of what I had
previously considered a deep state of meditation.
And as I continued to move in consciousness, I found myself in the
presence of what I can only describe as a Being of Light -- and as I
contemplated this new experience, the thought came into my head that this was
surely the Christ! And as I
pondered this new dimension of my journeys into inner states of mind, the
Being of Light impressed upon my mind the question: “Are
you Greek?” And as I
questioned the meaning of these words, my mind began to form the word Messiah!
And again the thought was impressed upon my consciousness: “Are
you a Jew?” Feeling
perplexed, the Light said to me: “When
you use terms that are foreign to your understanding, you can never get a real
sense of what these words convey”.
In a vision I was then shown that the Greek word Christ, as well as the Hebrew word Messiah, are words that are descriptive of a condition or state of mind and being -- i.e., as in the English translation of these words when they are properly rendered The Anointed. And as I pondered the relationship of these three words -- i.e., Christ, Messiah and their English equivalent as understood in the word Anointed -- I felt myself being drawn into still another time in the more distant past -- a time prior to my life as Matthew, the fourth century Ebionite Elder -- back to the very beginning of our Common Era -- and as the vision of previous ages came into clear perception, I saw the man known today as Jesus as he spoke and taught the people on the shores of Galilee. And as the memory of this more distant age began to flood into my mind, I understood that I was now seeing the world through the eyes of Jacob -- the life my soul had previously lived when I was a follower and disciple of this Great Prophet and Teacher who had come to save mankind by leading them out of the darkness of this world and into the Kingdom of the Light of the Father.
I looked out at the people who had come to hear him speak, I was literally
overcome with sheer amazement at what was transpiring before my eyes.
As Jacob, the disciple of the Lord’s Anointed Teacher and Prophet,
the Master Jesus had opened my mind and enabled me to become aware of man’s
extended reality which was manifest on a multidimensional level.
It was as if the events that transpired in this world was a staged
production which was being orchestrated by other realms that were beyond the
perception of carnal man in his natural, organic state of being.
These other realms were therefore not hidden or concealed -- but
rather, they could only be detected by sections of the mind that related to
states of consciousness and being beyond the barrier of this physical world.
As I gazed upon these mysteries, I began to understand the great truth
which the Apostle Paul attempted to express throughout his Epistles -- i.e.,
that the carnal mind of man is embryonic, and it must be born into two
extended realms of consciousness in order to inherit the promise of Eternal
Life that is a paramount theme of the sacred writings of all religions the
being given the spiritual gift of the opening of the mind by the Master --
which gift enabled me to perceive multiple parallel realms -- my vision of
life was more complete. I
immediately realized that when the scriptures speak of Jesus healing
the blind, what was being conveyed had more to do with man’s soul and
spiritual blindness, than the physical blindness we commonly attempt to limit
the message of the text to in our modern biblical interpretations.
With eyes that had been opened to man’s broad expansive reality that
he is generally unaware of, I could see and hear what was transpiring in this
physical world -- I could simultaneously observe extended realms and levels of
consciousness (of Law) that controlled the events that transpired in this
world -- I could further see that there was an in-between state which could
only be accessed by Jesus’ most devout followers and disciples -- and above
these parallel dimensions, I could simultaneously view still another world
which I called the realm of the souls.
As I gazed at the spectacle I was observing, I innately knew that there
were still other worlds above what I could observe -- purely spiritual realms
-- worlds that I could sense existed, but I was not able to see.
What I observed as I looked through the eyes of Jacob was both enlightening and perplexing! While the greater majority of the people sat and heard only the words which Jesus spoke, there were those among us who sat with the Master in what I can only describe as being present simultaneously in more than one dimension -- a parallel dimension that the carnal people of this world had no idea existed. Thus, I observed the biblical portrayal of the difference between those who were said to be “…without”, and those who learned from the Master “…in the house”. And as I saw these things which revealed to my vision a picture of man’s greater reality, I came to understand that the mind of man consciously exists across a multidimensional spectrum of being. Contrary to popular belief, it is not that these other dimensions and areas of mind are dormant -- but rather, that these extended areas of mind are segregated and walled off by barriers which are formed by the natural formation and interaction of law working upon our consciousness. I began to realize the enormity of the scriptural warning with respect to the reality that the part of mind of carnal man which is projected into this world is merely a partial, embryonic seed -- a seed-mind that must be grown, matured and developed if it is to become born and manifest in the Kingdom. And as I saw these things, the enormity of the meaning of the parables came into focus -- an enormity that few students of the Bible whose thinking was bound and anchored to the culture of this world could even begin to contemplate in man’s very limited assessment of the meaning of life and Creation. And in this elevated vision of man’s greater reality, I realized that we were very much the seed that was planted in the soil of this world -- i.e., we were the prodigal sons who had left the Heavenly Realm of the Father to learn the lessons of this life and return to the Kingdom in a more complete and perfected form!
Looking out through the eyes of Jacob at the people who heard only the Master’s words, I realized that it was these people who the scriptures spoke of as being carnal and of a natural organic state of mind. Because their thinking was in accordance with the culture and philosophy of this world, they had become severed from their own greater spiritual reality, and they had no idea that they existed across a multidimensional spectrum of being. How could they, when they saw only the material things of this world which was merely a fraction of man’s true reality. And as I continued to observe the world through the eyes of Jacob, I then saw others who possessed a hunger for Truth and Light -- men and women who dwelled in varying states of spiritual awareness -- and I could see that the realm of Law which created that natural barrier between this physical world and the other parallel dimensions that were beyond carnal man’s ability to perceive, had begun to open and permit a greater stream of consciousness to flow between realms.
In seeing these things I realized that our modern culture dwells in a state of spiritual darkness because we attempt to view the mind in reverse of man’s true reality. We attempt to educate our children by filling their minds with what we deem knowledge facts -- when we should instead be teaching our children how to tap into their inner resource of soul and spiritual knowledge that greatly exceeds all of our modern-day understanding of life. As I looked upon these men and women who possessed an elevated perception of the meaning of both the scriptures and life, I saw that their minds had begun to open to the inner dimensions of the soul and spirit. And as I looked, I could see higher thoughts entering within their consciousness in the manner of a stream of impressions flowing into their minds that nourished them in their search to understand the enigmas and mysteries of life. Where the carnally minded listeners heard only the words that Jesus spoke, these more enlightened individuals were able to perceive what was being said on a multidimensional level. As I gazed upon this vision of the past, I began to understand that the scriptures and the teachings of The Way was not a mere system of belief -- but rather, a means to overcome the limitations of the natural barrier of this organic world, and open a path of communication to man’s soul and spiritual natures.
Lastly, there were those few men and women who had totally consecrated their lives to the Light -- i.e., those who were considered extremists because their lifestyle and thinking was not attached to the culture and philosophy of this world -- and it was these souls of whom it is said in the scriptures that they had been made WHOLE -- whose consciousness was drawn from a multidimensional level of being -- and it was these consecrated men and women who learned directly and experientially from the Master in a realm that was beyond the ability of the carnal people of this world to perceive or even envision. Thus, while the multitude of people heard only his words -- and while more sincere believers could receive a higher understanding via the flow of impressions that flooded into their minds -- his genuine disciples were simultaneously taught by him privately “…in the house” (Matt 13:36), where the Master revealed Spiritual Truths and the Mysteries of the Kingdom only to those who had consecrated themselves from the defilement’s of this world.
I immediately saw that while the modern believer is often sincere in his faith in biblical mysteries that he is unable to comprehend, it is his own adherence to scriptural interpretations, the doctrines of men, and the dogma of well-meaning religious authorities of the church, which limit the believers understanding and growth in the Word of God. Once again we do not perceive this great enigma of life, because we continue to embrace the process of learning in reverse of what is necessary in order to overcome the great obstacles of life. It is not until we become thoroughly cognizant of the reality that the scriptures are not an historical narrative -- but rather, a conveyance of spiritual truths and events that must take place in the life and mind of the believer and disciple as they walk in The Way, that we are able to begin to embrace the soul and spiritual meaning of the written word.
When we ignore the warning of the Apostle Paul that the meaning of life, the scriptures, and the true depth of the Word, does not make rational sense to the carnal mind of man in his natural organic state of being, the people of faith become severely burdened by a modern church which generally rejects this very important element of the original teachings of the New Covenant. Contrary to the many warnings throughout the scriptures, they do not understand why the Son of God would teach one doctrine to the masses, while reserving what they perceive to be a secret doctrine to the few. From a church/doctrinal perspective, they desire an all-inclusive Savoir who equally redeems everyone regardless of their faithfulness to the core teachings of the scriptures. Yet, it is the modern church that ignores the very words of the Master when he commanded: “Do not give dogs what is holy; and do not throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under foot and turn to attack you” (Matt 7:6 RSV).
When the scriptures speak of dogs and swine, it does not make reference to animals -- but rather, people who possess the traits of these animals. Dogs and swine are indicative of those men and women who squander away their essence of life on the meaningless things of this world. Religion to these people is always redemptive, and is seen as a means to appease the gods so they can continue to immerse themselves in the sensual and material things of this world. On the other hand, only those who are possessed by a sincere desire for Truth and Light and focus their vital life-force on the development of man’s innate spiritual nature, are able to overcome the organic Laws which create a natural barrier that separates this world from the parallel dimensions of soul and spirit.
It is not that man’s higher reality across a spectrum of dimensions of consciousness are kept secret and hidden -- but rather, their state of blindness is actually self-imposed. Where the people of a carnal mind are totally focused on the elemental things of this world, those who direct their lives in the pursuit of Truth and follow in the footsteps of the Lord by living in accordance with His Word, are able to utilize a greater amount of man’s potential of mind, and are thus able to perceive man’s higher reality. It is only these faithful disciples in search of Truth and Light that can then be taught what men and women who are of a carnal mindset are unable to comprehend: “And when he was alone, those who were about him with the twelve asked him concerning the parables. And he said to them, ‘To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those outside everything is in parables; so that they may indeed see but not perceive, and may indeed hear but not understand; lest they should turn again, and be forgiven’” (Mark 4:10-12 RSV).
The great flaw in the thinking of carnal man is that he not only fails to perceive the threefold nature of both man and Creation, but that in his attempt to homogenize his perception of life, he fails to understand that each of us exists at greatly varying stages of soul and spiritual development that causes us to see and comprehend this world in a vastly different manner. Thus, while it can be said that all men were created equal, that does not suggest that equal means that we enter any particular life the same. In no longer understanding the original teachings of the New Covenant that still survives in the writings of early Christian writers such as the third century Church Father Origen, who wrote: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis) -- the modern believer is unable to comprehend why some men and women are born with greatly advanced spiritual powers of mind that the majority of people do not possess. They reason that if these extended realms of reality truly existed, and man has the ability to see into these realms, then they should be able to view these other worlds. That they are unable to see beyond the barrier of this three-dimensional realm causes them to conclude that these other worlds either do not exist -- or if they do exist, that all men and women are equally blind to their existence. The whole biblical concept that each of us is born into this life with greatly differing abilities and powers of mind that is inherited by virtue of the previous accomplishments of our pre-existent soul, is simply beyond their ability to grasp or comprehend.
As I gazed upon this vision of man’s own higher reality that would literally shock and dismay the average person whose limited experiences of life does little to prepare him for a more enlightened perception of Creation, I suddenly realized the relevance and relationship of all that existed in the physical world within which carnal man unsuspectingly dwells. In many instances what we consider evil, is merely our inability to perceive the higher good that will be brought about. Thus, I began to perceive the true depth of the words of St. Gregory, Bishop of Nyssa where he states: “…it is wrong to judge of what is morally excellent, or, on the other hand, of what is evil, by the standard of the senses”. St. Gregory then writes of the absolute importance of going beyond the physical in order to ascertain the truth and states: “…by withdrawing the mind from bodily phenomena, we must decide by itself and from itself the true nature of moral excellence and of its opposite”.
What is it that St. Gregory was conveying to the reader? St. Gregory knew that what we perceive and understand via our carnal senses that are associated with the body in which we presently dwell, detect only the physical things of this world, and as such are incomplete. It is not until we are able to understand the cause -- i.e., that every event in life has been brought about by a pre-existent cause that is designed to rectify not only a past action, but also is intended to correct or improve our journey towards our eventual destiny with respect to our return as the prodigal son to the Kingdom of our origination.
As my mind entertained the depth of St. Gregory’s observations, I immediately saw that what is beyond the very limited perception of carnal man is that every event in life is not only brought about for a purpose and reason -- but that these events that man repeatedly views as evil, is often both necessary and for his eventual own good. In the biblical example with respect to our search for the meaning of life as presented to us in the parable of the prodigal son, we can see that the Father never comes into the far country in an attempt to persuade his child to leave the suffering of this world and return to the realm of his birth or origination. Spiritual complacency, therefore, is viewed as satanic, because it will bring about our own eventual demise. The great truth that we fail to understand today is the fact that because each of us innately possess the knowledge of the Kingdom by virtue of the experiences of our pre-existent soul, we will not only perpetually hunger while we continue to roam in the darkness and incompleteness of this world -- but that every event and episode of this life us ultimately brought about in order to force us to return to our place of Origination that continues to remain our inescapable Destiny.
Remarkably, even the non-believer and Atheist was often led into lives of opposition to the church for man’s own eventual good. In the same way that for the son’s own good, the Father in the parable of the prodigal son did not attempt to persuade his child not to enter into the far country -- but rather, He knew that what is perceived as the evil of this world would eventually bring about the greater good -- the destruction of the Spiritual Church by the army of the Roman Emperor Constantine was actually brought about for the benefit of mankind. In like manner, when man began to emerge out of the Dark Ages, we have often heard of what has been portrayed as the conflict of religion of science -- and yet, this conflict and the rejection of church doctrine by many more rational thinking men of science was absolutely necessary in order to bring about the eventual greater good. Unless the mind of man is free and unshackled, he will remain a perpetual slave to the powers of darkness and ignorance. If science had remained a puppet to the shadow church of Constantine, then the more evolved perception of life and Creation that has only now been realized by the modern scientist -- an elevated perception that actually proves the fundamentals of Genuine Religion -- could never have been brought about in the life of man. Fundamentally, the great truth that both inspired believers as well as ardent Atheists both fail to understand is the fact that there is no conflict between religion and science -- only the politicization of man’s congenitally inherent limited vision of both himself and Creation.
"After religious teachers accomplish the refining process indicated they will surely recognize with joy that true religion has been ennobled and made more profound by scientific knowledge. The situation maybe expressed by an image: Science without religion is lame and religion without science is blind" Albert Einstein
of the primary obstacles in our understanding of both the scriptures and life
itself is seen in the fact that we embrace a Darwinist perception of life --
and even people of faith who ardently oppose the Theory of Evolution fail to
recognize that in the reinterpretation of the Word by the fourth century Roman
Church, even the modern Fundamentalist Christian views both the Bible and life
from a quasi-Darwinist perspective that is totally alien to the original
teachings of The Way. Thus,
in the fourth-century rape and destruction of the true people of the New
Covenant, the Church of Constantine not only defiled the teachings of The Way,
but molded the thinking of society along a course that naturally gave birth to
men such as Darwin and the Atheist Manifesto that pervades our culture today.
problem is seen in the fact that we have permitted ourselves to become
anchored to an erroneous perception of Creation -- and while Darwin and his
theory of evolution remains the holy grail of the Atheist and Secular Humanist
who are the architects and guardians of our modern-day culture, even the more
enlightened scientist readily sees the flaw in this very mechanical and
limited perception of life. In
the words of Niles Eldredge of the American Museum of Natural History: “The
old explanation that the fossil record was inadequate is in itself an
inadequate explanation.” Why?
The fossil record is inadequate because everything that we see and
perceive in this realm is directly caused by patterns of force being exerted
upon matter from beyond the bounds of this three-dimensional world in which we
experienced shock when he first came into contact with the new reality of
atomic physics, and wrote in his autobiography:
“All my attempts to adapt the
theoretical foundation of physics to this [new type of] knowledge failed
completely. It was as if
the ground had been pulled out from under one, with no firm foundation to be
seen anywhere, upon which one could have built”.
In much the same fashion, the European physicist Niels Bohr stated that
“…The great extension of our
experience in recent years has brought to light the insufficiency of our
simple mechanical conceptions and, as a consequence, has shaken the foundation
on which the customary interpretation of observation was based.”
conceptions” make reference to Darwin and the theory of evolution.
In his 1951 textbook on quantum theory, Bohm offered some interesting speculations on the analogies between quantum processes and thought processes, thus carrying further the celebrated statement made by the astronomer James Jeans two decades earlier: “Today there is a wide measure of agreement… that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”; and the statement by astronomer Arthur Eddington: “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”. More recently, cyberneticist David Foster described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source. The holographic theory says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space. The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”
What is the impact of these findings of modern science? The reality that is being conveyed is that what we perceive as solid physical matter, is being interpreted in this manner because our brains interpret that frequency to make what we see appear concrete. Moreover, what it also means is that we perceive only a fraction of Creation because our brains, which by virtue of the fact of their physical nature, can only detect frequencies that are within the same spectrum. In the same way that in order to be effective, an antenna must possess the physical characteristics that enables it to receive a certain range of the frequencies that the device (radio, TV, wireless phone, etc.) is intended to operate within, our physical mind and bodies are designed to function within a certain spectrum of Creation -- and this is predicated by the fact that our physical nature is composed of the elements that are of this world.
Just as important is the fact that we only use less than ten percent of our potential of mind which corresponds to the ten percent (physical) spectrum of frequencies with which we interact with in this world, because very few of us have ever trained and developed our minds to go beyond this natural organic limitation. Once we begin to comprehend this fact -- and strive to overcome the three-dimensional barrier of this world -- only then can we begin to comprehend the constant biblical assertion that carnal man is blind to higher reality.
That the Bible continually warns the reader that man in his natural organic state of mind neither understands what he sees with his physical eyes -- and perceives only a very limited perception of reality -- is easily confirmed in the above statements by the modern scientist. What this equates to is conformation of the many truths that biblical holy-men and prophets have invariably declared and warned us about with respect to the fact that what we see is not concrete -- and what we see with our physical eyes appears to us as solid matter, only because our physical brains are wired in such a way so as to interpret it in this manner.
Fundamentally this means that what we see when we look out into the world is a very limited perception of reality, and equates to nothing more than the same ten percent of our potential of mind that we are limited to using by nature -- i.e., men and women who use less than ten percent of their potential of mind are only capable of perceiving less than ten percent of the totality of Creation and the world in which they dwell. Yet, to our own demise, we fail to embrace the reality that men such as Martin Luther, Darwin, our many scholars and philosophers throughout the history of the world, the people who teach our children, the political and religious leaders who convey to us their very incomplete and limited religious doctrines, quasi-scientific theories, and philosophies about life, all have failed to overcome the very flaw in human reasoning that caused the Apostle Paul to both condemn the wisdom of this world as foolishness, and warn us that the people of the simple faith do not comprehend the Spiritual Gospel of Christ! Yet, we ignore the wisdom of the Apostle, and erroneously believe that man can attain to higher understanding while still using less than ten percent of his potential of mind -- a ten percent that only detects a very limited and suppressed spectrum of the totality of Creation. The problem is that to recognize the great dilemma that confronts man is not enough -- only a truly Great Soul possess the vision and experience to lead others to the Kingdom of Light that lies beyond the barriers of this world -- and when Constantine and his forces of darkness snuffed out the lives of the true disciples of Yehshua (Joshua/Jesus), all of mankind has paid the price!
In the first two chapters of Paul’s First Epistle to the Corinthians the Apostle very clearly teaches that there is the “testimony” of Christ that is preached to the multitudes of people, and the “mysteries” of the Gospel that cannot even be contemplated by those believers who have yet to be transformed by the Spirit, and are still of a natural organic state of mind. While this reality was difficult for men such as Martin Luther and Darwin to envision, this is no longer the case in our present time. Luckily, our modern scientific advances have provided us with great insight into understanding what Paul was attempting to convey to the mind of the still carnal believer. Once we are able to comprehend that we are dwelling in a non-mechanical “…holographic universe” that is now being described as being of an intelligent nature -- i.e., and appears to us in every way as a great thought -- only then can we begin to truly understand the universal plight of man that Yehshua (Joshua/Jesus) came to free us from. What the Bible portrays as Satan -- both collectively and as a singular being who opposes the Heavenly Kingdom -- can more appropriately be portrayed as the power or force which bonds and shackles us to this world through the organic physical body/vessels we are presently residing in.
If we are to use an analogy or comparison, Satan can thus best be understood as the gravity of mind that holds our thinking to this world. In the same way that gravity keeps our bodies attached to the surface of the earth, the satanic force the Bible warns us of keeps our thoughts attached to the physical. Moreover, because we dwell in an “…intelligent universe” which attempts to fight off all threats to its existence in the manner of our own physical bodies fighting off an invading germ or disease, any time we attempt to move into harmony with our indwelling soul or spirit, the physical world not only inhibits us, but will garner its own forces to overcome us in the manner of the body producing antibodies to combat a virus or foreign microbe. It is for this reason that the Apostle Paul wrote of the war that rages in his flesh that opposes the law of the spirit -- and that all those who are of the flesh will die because they cannot live in accordance with the spirit.
While the modern Christian will passionately and vehemently oppose this statement on the basis of an incomplete understanding of Paul’s doctrine of faith -- i.e., saying, they have received the promise of being saved -- the Apostle very clearly warned that unless the believer begins to do the Will of the Lord, and follow in his footsteps into the Kingdom, then they have neither faith or belief, and they are what the Apostle himself portrays as counterfeit Christians. The problem is that our whole perception of life is built upon a great error. We have permitted ourselves to become imbued with a Darwinist mindset that has alienated us from our very source of being.
The implications of our post-Darwinist, modern emerging scientific view, means that the Essene-Ebionite vision that Jesus taught is correct, and what we perceive with our bodily physical senses is not only in direct relation to the ten percent limitation of mind that we functionally use, but is in fact only an illusion and symbol of man’s higher reality. The problem is that the person who has developed his spiritual abilities that permit him to sense these other parallel realms that are beyond the perception of carnal man – i.e., the spiritual holy man/woman who is often referred to as a mystic -- is in fact the scientist and explorer of the religious world, is generally not listened to by the great masses of people who remain sense bound in their perception of life. Yet, the great truth that we fail to recognize today is the fact that the modern scientist who has evolved his thinking out of the Darwinist dark ages, now shares the plight of the religious visionary/mystic, in that both are equally ignored by those who champion their cause in the world.
In a February 1979 Psychology Today interview with brain scientist Karl Pribram, the world which he attempted to describe confirmed the vision witnessed by the Hebrew prophet and confirmed in the Bible: “It isn’t that the world of appearances is wrong; it isn’t that there aren’t objects out there, at one level of reality. It’s that if you penetrate through and look at the universe with a holographic system, you arrive at a different reality, one that can explain things that have hitherto remained scientifically inexplicable: paranormal phenomena… synchronicities, the apparently meaningful coincidence of events”.
What Karl Pribram was attempting to warn us is that the universal voice of the prophet throughout the ages was correct -- that what we perceive as solid objects is not solid at all -- and they appear to us as concrete objects because our physical senses cause them to be seen as being solid. This fact is not only true, but it is conformation that in many instances, those in the past who were condemned as religious heretics, were not the heretics -- but rather, the genuine visionaries who were able to perceive the true depth of both the material world, as well as the religious teachings that enable man to overcome the obstacle which confronts and binds him to this deceptive physical reality.
Now that science has itself evolved beyond the very limited perception of men such as Darwin, it has become possible for us to begin to perceive that what scientist Karl Pribram was attempting to explain with respect to what is continually presented throughout the scriptures, and is very clearly portrayed in the Gospel of Luke: “So all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, and rose up and thrust Him out of the city; and they led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw Him down over the cliff. Then passing through the midst of them, He went His way” (Luke 4:28-30 NKJ). What Jesus did was simply withdraw the presence of his physical body from being able to be detected by the carnal minds of the men who were attempting to kill him -- i.e., he altered the frequency that he emanated -- and simply walked right through the midst of them to safety.
Once we begin to understand this greater reality of Creation that has been revealed to us by the modern scientist, we start to realize that the same obstacle that has existed throughout the ages of the past continues to plague and limit us to this very day. In his Preface to Stalking The Wild Pendulum, by Itzhak Bentov, William A. Tiller, Materials Sciences Department, Stanford University writes: “The present scientific establishment has grown somewhat fossilized by its current world picture and is locked into a view of reality that has outlived its usefulness. It has begun to limit mankind’s growth and has so increased its sense of specialization, separateness, materiality, and mechanical computer-like functioning that it is in real danger of self-extermination”. Yet this fossilized science is still being promoted among our school children -- it remains as the founding principle upon which our culture is based -- it is being used to inhibit both religion and freedom in our present-day culture -- and has greatly limited the ability of man to function in his true multidimensional and spiritual reality.
The text of Itzhak Bentov’s book itself reveals that: “The quantum theory asserts that there is no way one can measure some sets of things, like momentum and position, together very accurately... because the consciousness of the experimenter interacts with the experiment itself. Therefore, it becomes possible that the attitude of the experimenter must also influence the outcome of any particular experiment”.
Thus, we begin to contemplate the interrelatedness of mind and matter and the fact that our whole politically correct culture has become an obstacle to the advancement of mankind. In the very narrow linear perception of the “fossilized” world-view that is taught in science class in our schools today, the idea that the mind of the experimenter can impact the results of the experiment itself is simply beyond the scope of understanding. If everything we see is a detached, separate inanimate object, then we have no means to even contemplate how the mind of a person can affect the outcome of a given experiment? That there is an unseen connection between mind and matter, and man is able to consciously and unconsciously effect what we perceive as inanimate objects with his own patterns of thought, means that our present-day cultural and quasi-scientific perception of Creation itself is defective. Moreover, when we attempt to interpret the scriptures through the filter of our flawed vision and inherent understanding, it is impossible for us to even begin to perceive the true depth and revelation of the Word of God! The problem is that we can never start to embrace man’s true reality, until we begin to acknowledge and recognize that what we see is only a fragment of the whole picture of any given object.
Robert Jastrow, an astrophysicist who heads NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, pointed out that the big bang is not exactly an explanation of cause. He is quoted in The Aquarian Conspiracy: “If a scientist really examines the implications, he would be traumatized. As usual, when the mind is faced with trauma, it reacts by ignoring the implications - in science this is called ‘refusing to speculate’ - or by trivializing the origin of the world by calling it the Big Bang, as if the universe were merely a firecracker”.
Jastrow then continues and states:
“Consider the enormousness of the problem: Science has proved that the
universe exploded into being at a certain moment.
It asks, what cause produced this effect?
Who or what put the matter and energy into the universe?
Was the universe created out of nothing or was it gathered together out
of pre-existing materials? And
science cannot answer these questions... It is not a matter of another year,
another decade of work, another measurement, or another theory.
At this moment it seems as though science will never be able to raise
the curtain on the mystery of creation”.
In the realization that traditional scientific inquiry can never provide the answers to life, thoughtful physicists in greater number have begun to notice the curious parallels between their own findings and ancient mystical descriptions of reality. These similarities were pointed out in the book, The Tao Of Physics, by Fritjof Capra, and The Dancing Wu Li Masters by Gary Zukav. Zukav’s book takes its title from the Chinese expression for physics, wu li, which he translates as “patterns of organic energy”, and writes: “Bell’s theorem not only suggests that the world is quite different than it seems, it demands it. Something very exciting is happening. Physicists have ‘proved’ rationally that our rational ideas about the world in which we live are profoundly deficient”.
Bell’s theorem, which was proposed in 1964 by J.S. Bell, a physicist working in Switzerland, was first confirmed experimentally in 1972. Physicist Henry Stapp, in a 1975 federal report called it the most “profound discovery of science”. Bell’s theorem succeeds in exhibiting the bizarre nature of the subatomic world. Experiments show that if paired particles which are identical twins in their polarity fly apart, and the polarity of one is changed by an experimenter, the polarity of the other particle changes instantaneously. Even though they appear to us as separate, the particles remain mysteriously connected regardless of the fact that there is no physical connection. The problem is that the mind of man in it’s natural organic state is simply incapable of perceiving the far-reaching ramifications of this great truth -- and even less prepared to comprehend the results of the intertwining connections that are maintained not only between individuals and groups of people, but between the past, the present, and future.
LIBERATION -- OR SPIRITUAL DEATH? Modern
social re-engineers have deemed the biblical lifestyle of marital fidelity as
being antiquated and outmoded -- but is it?
Even many supposed religious authorities have questioned the validity
of the biblical authors -- and have in recent years especially attacked what
they view as the extreme and outmoded morality of the Apostle Paul.
Is his theology out-of-date, as many assert today? Or
did he possess a vision of this material world that we are only now beginning
to comprehend? If Bell’s “profound
discovery of science” is applied to the relationship of husband and wife
and the Divine Pattern of Creation, then sexual partners not only remain
connected, but continue to strongly influence each other throughout the rest
of their lives. Once we add
in the teachings of Hebrew/Christian Mysticism that God can only be realized
by men and women who have become “One
Flesh”, and overcome their own states of masculine/feminine division,
only then we can begin to realize why our present promiscuous lifestyle has
been deemed the pollution of the flesh by the prophets who authored the Bible!
the authors of the Bible narrow-minded old men who feared sexual variety,
expression and bliss? Or in
their elevated vision of the world and Creation did they perceive and observe
great truths that the majority of people who see only a very limited spectrum
of the frequencies of Creation are blind to?
How can the two become “One
Flesh” and enter into a state of total harmony, when both Bell’s
theorem and the prophets of old agree that we remain intimately connected to
all those with whom we engage in sexual congress?
Moreover, Bell has proven that those we have engaged in sexual
relations in the past, continue to impact and color our thinking throughout
our lives. If, then, we are
truly the advocates of freedom and choice that we proclaim to be today,
shouldn’t we make this knowledge available to our children when we teach
them sex education in school? Shouldn’t
we convey to them the reality that if they engage in sex with a variety of
partners as is being advocated today, that they may never be able to enter
into a marriage in the genuine biblical sense, and they will never be able to
become “One Flesh” with their spouse?
contrary to the Darwinist perception of Creation which continues to be taught
to our children today, the only explanation for Bell’s theorem that can
possibly be arrived at is the realization that the particles remain connected
in a realm beyond the three-dimensions in which we presently dwell.
What does this mean to us? It
not only tells us that Darwin’s perception of Creation was in grave error,
but is confirmation that what we see with our physical senses is merely a very
limited and partial view of reality -- an extended reality we fail to see
because of the impairment of our perception of the world -- which extended
reality is in fact the controlling force in our lives.
Ultimately, what this means is that at best, we possess merely the
illusion of freedom and choice. If
it is true that visionaries of the past who we have ignorantly portrayed as
narrow-minded, sexually frustrated old men took the position they did because
they saw the result and impact of the heathen, hedonistic and self-indulgent
promiscuous lifestyle of the people of the Nations, then the joke is truly on
us when we condemn what we do not understand!
Only when we begin to truly comprehend the far-reaching aspects of this profound truth are we able to understand the many warnings of both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Where the people of the simple faith imagine that God keeps a running tally with regard to a person’s deeds and miss-deeds in their life in which they will later be judged, the truth and reality of the scriptures is better represented in the above words of Gary Zukav when he wrote: “Bell’s theorem not only suggests that the world is quite different than it seems, it demands it... Physicists have ‘proved’ rationally that our rational ideas about the world in which we live are profoundly deficient”. And when we rationally analyze these words of the modern scientist, don’t we also have to admit that the Bible continually states exactly the same thing?
What these all-important truths convey to us is a number of realities that, to our own demise, we are simply not prepared to even contemplate. In the first place we can now begin to understand that God does not keep a tally-sheet of all our deeds and misdeeds -- but rather, every aspect of our life remains with us, and is stored in another sphere of ourselves that is simply beyond our physical ability to detect. Taking this still one step further: If it is true that our soul pre-exists our present life, then every aspect of our more distant past is not only stored in another sphere of mind that is presently beyond our perception, but we can begin to comprehend the biblical doctrine of pre-destination -- which is little more than the assertion of the scriptures that we should “…not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV) -- which again confirms the biblical doctrine that each of us enters this life with either the burdens or blessings of our own past as seen in the words: “As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, ‘Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?’” (John 9:1-2 NIV). How could the man sin prior to being born, unless the sin took place in a previous life?
The rather stark reality that is now confirmed by both modern science and the original teachings of the New Covenant, is that when we view ourselves in the mirror, what we actually perceive is merely a fragment of our true self. The person we are at present is the result of not only our experiences in this life, but also the lives we have lived prior to being born into this world. Moreover, quite contrary to what we have been taught by well-meaning and inspired cultural prophets, what we see as a separate and unique physical body, remains intimately connected to not only the other people in our lives, but the other people with whom we have interacted over the course of many lives. Further, these people and experiences continue to strongly influence our thinking and course of life, because they remain ever-present with us at another level of our being that is beyond our physical perception. Only when we begin to recognize this great truth, can we begin to equate the importance of what Jesus taught with respect to the all-encompassing reality that what we do to our brothers and sisters with regard to our judgments and our deeds remain with us. How? As unseen connections that intimately impact our lives as they interact with us throughout the various parts of our body that we cannot see and detect with our physical senses.
What confronts us is the problem that modern science has only now just begun to reveal to us a greater picture of both ourselves and the world in which we live that is simply beyond the scope of our present-day notions of Creation. Fundamentally, the linear and rational view of the world that we teach our children is devoid of any connection with man’s true reality because of its fragmentary and limited scope of perception. The problem is that because our culture is firmly attached to a very fossilized perception of the world -- a culture that, like a drug, is impossible to break loose of without an almost total withdrawal -- we are unable to alter the present very destructive course we are traveling upon.
his book, Urbausteine der Materie, physicist Walter Thirring wrote
about matter that modern physics
“has put our thinking about the essence of matter in a different context.
It has taken our gaze from the visible - the particles - to the
underlying entity, the field. The
presence of matter is merely a disturbance of the perfect state of the field
at that place; something accidental, one could almost say, a ‘blemish’.
Accordingly, there are no simple laws describing the forces between
elementary particles… Order and symmetry must be sought in the underlying
Stop reading! Do not unconsciously skim over these words of the modern scientist that confront you with a universal reality that if we fail to understand, enslaves each and every person who dwells in this world today! These words represent such a great revelation to the mind of modern man whose cultural mindset totally alienates him from his own true reality, that I believe every reader should ask themselves what this statement by a respected physicist means to them? What is the relationship of these words to your present life? How do they impact what you believe? Once it is understood that our lives are not only controlled, but predestined prior to our birth into this physical world by the combination of interweaving fabric of law, mind and spirit that comprises the makeup of the elements of the field that surrounds us -- acting as a filter that colors both our vision and perceptions of life -- elements that cause us to be either a victim or predator, successful or unsuccessful, lucky, fortunate or a total failure in life -- are all the result of the pattern of organic energy the interacts between a person’s field and every aspect of their lives. Moreover, true change, development and transformation can only be brought about when one begins to alter the source of the events and personal agenda of one’s life that is found embedded in what the scientist describes as the field.
What few of us will realize is the fact that these words with respect to the all-encompassing impact of the field as it interacts with what we perceive as physical matter, are in fact the (scientific) equivalent of the conclusion spoken by biblical scholar A. Powell Davies with respect to the relationship between modern religious doctrine and the Dead Sea Scrolls when he said: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).
What physicist Walter Thirring is stating to us is that everything we are presently teaching our children in our modern-day educational systems is not only grave and disturbing error, but is in fact detrimental to a proper understanding of Life and Creation. The Bible reveals to us that there are two ways -- i.e., the narrow path to Life, and the broad-way that the majority of people travel in this world to their own destruction. While it is true that our present-day understanding of the Gospel is deficient, we must ask ourselves what is the alternative? Ultimately, what this means is that if you reject religion and put your faith in the Darwinist junk science that is being promoted today, you will die -- and once this fact is recognized, it can be said that if you are a responsible parent you will immediately remove your children from the government system of public schools. Why? Because what our children are taught is political, and has nothing in common with man’s true reality.
are the implications to this more enlightened understanding about the
relationship between matter and what we perceive through our physical senses,
and the realm which we do not see which the scientist calls the field?
Because the very foundation of our thinking is in error -- i.e., a
philosophy founded upon the idea that the physical world and matter is the
self-generating source of life and Creation -- everything we build upon that
foundation is equally in error! What
this means is that everything we are teaching our children in science class --
philosophy -- our historical and cultural literature -- as well as the very
goals and objectives that we are using to influence and mold the thinking of
our children -- are all injurious to their well-being.
Why? In the words of
the respected man of science: Because reality is in the field that our
physical eyes and natural organic minds are incapable of detecting -- and what
we perceive with our physical eyes is merely the “blemish”
that occurs -- something that he describes as a disturbance, and even an
accident -- when these fields intersect.
If, then, we desire to see reality, and begin to teach our children
reality, then we must begin to develop those parts of our mind that has the
ability to detect the field, and learn to observe the movement of the field
that is the source of what appears to us from a physical perspective.
the physicist is telling you is that your physical body that you observe in
the mirror – the physical form that you use to present yourself to the world
around you -- is in fact caused by a disturbance in your own, personal field
-- and it is this field that you do not see, that causes a blemish in this
realm that we perceive through the eyes that has been formed out of this
blemish. Again, if what we
observe in this world as being concrete, is not really concrete, but merely a
frequency that our brain interprets in a concrete manner, then we have the
means to develop our mind in order to permit it to detect the full spectrum of
frequencies that make up the totality of all of Creation.
Can we do this? Both
the Bible and the holy men and women of the past convey to us that an
enlightened vision and understanding of life is not only possible, but it is
our eventual destiny. Thus,
the problem is seen in the fact that man’s true reality is neither
addressed, acknowledged, or acted upon in any intelligent manner by our
politically correct culture that controls the heartbeat of society today.
From our modern scientific perspective, the Darwinist perception of
Creation amounts to little more than junk-science, while the findings of
genuine science has become as a cult that is not even discussed in our modern
educational systems. To the
detriment of our own children, what we teach instead is secular dogma --
anti-religious secular dogma -- that has absolutely no basis in fact.
we could but for a brief moment gaze at this world from the perspective of
higher reality, what we would immediately realize is that what science is
learning about Creation today was in fact elementary to the eyes and
understanding of the Hebrew-Christian visionary of the past.
Thus, the great dilemma: It is one thing through scientific endeavor to
become aware that these other dimensions exist, and become cognizant of the
impact they have upon this world -- and still quite another to move in and out
and explore these other realms of existence.
Moreover, all these scientific theories that we have newly discovered
today, is not new at all -- and have been well established in the scriptures
and the writings of the prophets and visionaries since the dawn of time.
How can this be, you will ask?
Simple! If we are to
even begin to come to terms with our own higher reality and purpose of life,
it is absolutely important for us to recognize the fact that man does not need
a technically advanced society in order to explore the realms of Higher Mind
-- i.e., he only needs his mind -- then it will also be realized that our
world of modern technology can in fact be detrimental to our own development,
because it has the ability to greatly distract man in his search for the
answers to Life. What this
ultimately means is that the wisdom of the ancients could very well be
superior to the modern philosophy that our universities teach today.
In fact, if man could see the wonders of Creation clearly, he would
quickly realize that the supposed conflict between science and religion is
superficial, and is nothing more than the result of ignorance with regard to
both the true nature of religion and scientific fact.
astronomer James Jeans proclaimed that: “Today
there is a wide measure of agreement… that the stream of knowledge is
heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more
like a great thought than like a great machine” -- we should have
realized that the ancient men of wisdom did not need our modern-day
technological advances to explore a universe that is a “great
thought”, they only needed to understand the laws and conditions that
limited their own minds from interacting with the Higher Intelligence that put
the universe in place! It
should be reasonable to every reader that the means by which we explore the “great
thought” of Creation, is to use our own thought and mind as a
vehicle in which to travel beyond this world of physical appearances.
The true spiritual Hebrew and Christian visionaries of the past have always acknowledged the validity of the objects that appear to our senses as being of a physical nature -- i.e., no one is denying that what we perceive with our physical eyes as being concrete to the senses does indeed exist -- but they also assert that there is a good deal more than what we see -- and modern science has progressed to the degree where it can now affirm this universal religious position. In the words of Einstein: “We may therefore regard matter as being constituted by the regions of space in which the field is extremely intense… There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality” (quoted in M. Capek, The Philosophical Impact of Contemporary Physics).
PUBLIC SCHOOL CURRICULUM DETRIMENTAL TO CHILD: What this means is that modern-day Atheism and the non-religious curriculum of our present-day public schools which is attempting to re-engineer Creation in reverse of reality, is in fact a very real detriment to both our children and the society at lodge. Why? Because every aspect of the agenda that is being taught -- the very mindset that our children are being imbued with -- is flawed because it is being built upon the wrong foundation and vision of Creation. Modern science has already proven our very defective vision of Creation to be in error, but they are unable to invoke any meaningful change in the world-view that has been described as “fossilized” by the more enlightened perception of human reality. Why? Because their opponents are motivated by an anti-God agenda that it is designed for the express purpose of opposing traditional religion which they view as being too (sexually) restrictive -- i.e., resulting in the fact that they do not desire to seek knowledge, understanding and higher truth -- but merely to oppose religion, standards of behavior and morality, and God.
Thus, the problem: Once properly understood, the traditional religious system of morality is not restrictive at all -- and what I will demonstrate throughout this book is that in order to even begin to open the mind to man’s higher reality, man must cease to squander away his vital life-force, and channel this spiritual energy in a way that will enable him to utilize a greater portion of his potential of mind.
The secular quasi-priests of our culture are not interested in Truth -- and will only embrace whatever knowledge supports their carnally indulgent lifestyle. Instead of seeking the truth, the anti-God advocates attempt to ignore the facts -- close their minds to whatever does not conform to their perception of the world -- and continue to live in a cocoon that shields them from the sight of reality. Is such a statement absurd? Not once it is realized that their own prophets of science have warned them that the true source of all that we see, think and feel, as well as all events that we interact with on a daily basis, lies beyond the physical world they view with their bodily senses. What this means is the very proofs they deny with respect to the existence of what they call the supernatural, has been virtually placed in their hands -- and they continue to ignore reality because it does not conform to their own vision of life. Why? Because if they even admit that the Darwinist vision of Creation is in grave error, they will then be rejected by the masses of people they are attempting to influence and control.
One of the fundamental truths that Jesus taught, and is no longer clearly understood today, was that part of our being is not manifest in this world -- i.e., while it is true that mankind has a physical body and associated organic mind that interacts with the natural world in which it appears that we presently dwell, he also possesses a soul and spiritual nature that simultaneously exists in separate and distinct parallel spheres of consciousness. In the words of St. Teresa of Avila: “The soul,” she explains, is as “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions” (Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila).
What the teachings of the Bible reveal is that man is incomplete in his natural organic state of being -- and if we are to enter into the Kingdom that Yehshua (Joshua/Jesus) declared, we must learn to function in all the inner rooms of the soul simultaneously. Those people who were truly faithful to the teachings of the Lord, and walk in The Way, are able to overcome the limiting shackles of the physical body, break free of the power that controls this world, and transcend the divides between each of the three realms that comprise man’s physical, soul and spiritual natures. What we fail to comprehend is that mankind is temporal because of his divided state of being -- that he can only utilize less than ten percent of his potential of mind because these other elements of mind correspond to these other realms that his soul and spirit simultaneously dwells in -- and that the biblical perception of perfection and oneness is indicative of the condition when man has overcome his divided nature -- ultimately becoming One with his Source of Being. True faith, then, can only be measured and realized by those who actually follow in the footsteps of the Lord -- step by step -- and in the biblical vision of the prodigal son, return to the Kingdom from which they originally emerged.
What man in his carnal state of mind fails to understand is the paradoxical nature of reality -- and that from the vision and perception that Darwin viewed the world, he was not entirely wrong. It is true that in his natural, physical state of being, man is very much an integral part of nature -- i.e., he is an embryonic projection of his soul into a physical body that he uses as a vessel in this world, and this physical vessel is very much a vital and essential part of this world. But because Darwin’s perception of the world was limited to this realm of physical appearances, he attempted to explain mysteries that can only be comprehended when one is able to simultaneously see and understand how this world interacts with the parallel realms that he is unable to perceive with his bodily senses.
As a physical being, Darwin was correct in his conclusion that man is very much an integral part of nature. But what does this mean? Darwin observed that everything in this world is intimately entwined as a part of the whole -- so much so, that man himself can be likened to our understanding of the vegetable kingdom -- in that nature is One, and in the same way that the vegetable kingdom is one of the primary sources of the oxygen which is necessary to support all organic life, what we fail to understand is that physical man emits a vibratory-power in his life-force that the natural organic balance of this world uses to maintain its consciousness and influence over all that exists in this realm of being. What this ultimately means is that physical man is both present and necessary to the balance of this world, because he is an integral part of nature, and the world needs him -- i.e., it needs the vibratory frequency of mind that man emits. But, unlike the mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms which are very much of this realm, man possesses a soul and spirit that is not of this world -- and he has the ability to direct his vital life-force energies into this indwelling Kingdom (Luke 17:21), and thereby develop his mind and consciousness beyond the natural three-dimensional limitations of this world.
If we can grasp this concept that physical man’s body is an integral element of the makeup and balance of this world -- and yet, unlike the mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms that are very much a part of this realm, man has the ability to direct his life-force beyond the scope of the natural organic world -- i.e., within himself, instead of into the outside world -- then we must begin to contemplate a whole new dimension to what Jesus taught with respect to his declaration that the Kingdom can never come upon the earth in the manner that men predict, because it already exists within the mind of man. Yet, there is an obstacle that must be overcome -- and in the Bible this obstacle is portrayed as the god of this world which is actively working in the life of every individual. Thus, the Bible also warns us that when the (genuine) followers of Jesus begin to seek to overcome the three-dimensional barrier of this world and enter the indwelling Kingdom, that their powers (of mind and being) not only become stronger and more complete, but by virtue of this redirection of their energies, they actually begin to deprive this natural world of the vital organic life-force that it needs and uses as a source to feed upon. What this means is that both this natural world and the biblical portrayal of Satan, actually need us to continue to survive and maintain their harmonic balance and power in this realm.
Again, it is important for us to contemplate man’s higher reality and its effect upon organic nature from the perspective of the stability of this world. One of our greatest shortcomings is seen in the fact that we do not fully comprehend the implications of the vision of Darwin in our lives -- i.e., because we see ourselves as not only being separate, but also elevated to the position as the rulers of nature, we often fail to envision our physical self as being an integral part of this world. To perceive the whole picture, we must begin to perceive this world as a living organism that our physical bodies are an integral part of.
when we begin to heed the wisdom of the modern scientist who has warned us
that we are dwelling in an “…intelligent
universe… that resembles a great thought”, can we even begin to
comprehend why Jesus very clearly predicted that his true
followers will be persecuted in the same manner that he was.
Why? Why could he so
reassuringly make such a statement?
What Jesus was attempting to convey to us was the
reality of man in relation to the consciousness of this world.
When one man or woman begins to discover that they are able to gain
access to a parallel realm which Jesus taught was a Heavenly
Kingdom, because this individual person’s presence actually begins to affect
other men and women as they begin to discover their own indwelling spiritual
nature and access to this Kingdom, from the perspective of this world, this
loss of vital life-force can be compared to our own loss of blood.
the same way that we would quickly apply pressure or a bandage to stop the
loss of blood in order to preserve our own life, the consciousness of this
world moves to squash both the individual and the group who begin to redirect
their vital life-force inward -- thereby depriving the natural organic world
of life-force in the manner of our own body halting a loss of blood.
Why? Why does the
collective consciousness of this realm act in this manner?
In order to maintain it’s own survival.
If the scientist is correct in his modern-day understanding that we are
presently dwelling in an “…intelligent
universe… that resembles a great thought”, then any loss of vital
life-force and balance from the perspective of this world must immediately be
dealt with in order to maintain (organic) life!
is for this reason that Jesus warned his followers that they
would be scorned and despised by the people of this world -- and in the manner
of a disease, their death and demise would be looked upon as the destruction
of heretics and evildoers. The
Bible very clearly warns us that we dwell in a world of reverse polarity --
resulting in the fact that carnal men will always perceive the Light to be
Because their consciousness is very much organic and of this world --
and those who walk in The Way, and succeed in overcoming the three dimensional
barrier and are able to manifest the inner Kingdom, become a threat to the
survival of this natural realm. Once
this great truth is understood, we can then begin to realize that the
prediction of the Apostle Paul with respect to the takeover of the church by
the forces of darkness was something that was both necessary and imminent from
the perspective of the consciousness that controls this world.
The Church in its original spiritual form was a disease!
world and the natural organic power that controls it is referred in the
scriptures as being enveloped in darkness, because its three-dimensional
reality is incomplete -- resulting in the fact that it greatly limits and
inhibits the mind from seeing, perceiving, and comprehending man’s higher
reality and state of being. From
the perspective of what the Apostle Paul called the god of this world, the
teachings of The Way was a threat to the natural organic balance of this
world. Paul therefore knew
that in time, the Spiritual Church had to be replaced by a shadow church that
would appear to be in accordance with New Covenant teachings, but was not!
We have been warned by the modern scientist that we are possessed by an outmoded perception of Creation -- and it is not until we begin to re-evaluate everything we think we know and understand -- look beyond our fossilized” vision of life -- and start to perceive this realm as a living collective consciousness, can we begin to even contemplate the organic cause of why man only uses less than ten percent of his potential of mind -- which ultimately portrays the plight of man when he attempts to redirect his vital life-force inward in his search for what the Bible portrays as the gate to the Kingdom. The scriptures warn us that we are blind to man’s higher reality -- and the modern scientist has confirmed this fact. The scriptures warn us that we only hear and comprehend with a very suppressed and limited perception of what we think we see and understand -- and again, the modern scientist has confirmed this fact. How long will we continue to delude ourselves?
Where the modern Atheist and non-believer today considers themselves to be enlightened because they are able to see through the doctrines of the Roman Church, what they fail to realize is that they too have fallen victims to the satanic trap that Paul predicted would consume this world. Thus, the great truth that the nonbeliever fails to realize is that just because a person is intelligent enough to see through the false doctrines of the shadow church, the mere rejection of error in and of itself does not equate to the knowledge of the Truth. In the same way that the force or power of ignorance that the scriptures refer to as the Prince of Darkness raised up false prophets and apostles, this same supernatural power raised up philosophers whose very limited perception was used to satisfy the incomplete understanding of carnally driven men, and thus was able to successfully fool even the most wise and crafty who would stand in opposition to his shadow church.
In perfect fulfillment of the Apostle Paul’s prediction, what the god of this world successfully accomplished was to inhibit the spiritual development of the people by keeping their attention and focus on the shadow church. He used the blind believers who perceived themselves to be inspired by the Holy Spirit, to further his gospel. To those who saw through the limitations of his doctrines of belief, he induced within them a false sense of success in their opposition to the church. Thus, by flaming the fires of conflict, he could continue to control the masses by keeping their focus off the Spirit and Genuine Temple of the Eternal God that he replaced in the minds of the people with the shadow church of the antichrist. To those few who were beyond the control of the antichrist and his shadow church -- i.e., those genuine and sincere believers who have arisen throughout every period to man’s history who sought the Full Revelation of the Gospel by drawing nearer to the Lord by manifesting Truth and Light in their lives -- were viewed as an enemy to the church and the truth which the Apostle predicted would be controlled by the Prince of Darkness. Thus, the god of this world induced the masses of people who called themselves Christian, to persecute and kill the enemies of the god of the shadow church in whatever form it has taken, and thereby condemned the followers of Yeshua (Jesus), the True Son of God, as heretics.
TRUE TEMPLE UNDEFILED AND PURE: Do these concepts sound strange and confusing? Why would God permit such a thing from happening? Why would He not crush the shadow church and throw out its counterfeit doctrines? The answer is because we are the prodigal sons of our Heavenly Father who presently dwell in what the Bible portrays as the “far country” -- and in order to fulfill the biblical requirement of completion and perfection (Matt 5:48), we must overcome our state of division and separation, and embrace our Destiny as the mature offspring of God. If God was to destroy this physical realm, the Divine Pattern of Creation would become null because the very schoolhouse where the souls of men learn, grow and perfect themselves, would become lost. Thus, it is for this reason that the father of the prodigal son never comes into the far country even though his child is suffering at the hands of the citizen of this world who the Apostle portrays as the Prince of Darkness, but awaits his sons return when he has had a change of mind and heart (Luke 15:11-32). That each of us has the ability to know the Truth, and dwell in the Utopian Paradise that is beyond even what has been envisioned by our philosophers and authors of our culture, means that any time that we sincerely desire to know and become the Truth, it is within our ability to fulfill what is in fact our ultimate Destiny.
Confirmation of what is being presented here is seen in the words of the Apostle when he stated to the men of Athens: “God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. 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 17:24-28 NKJ). What the Apostle states is that even though God is Singular, it is also paradoxically true that “…in Him we live and move and have our being”. The Apostle also confirms that were we believe that we have choice and freewill, that our lives have been pre-appointed and the boundaries and dwellings in this world have been set in accordance with God’s Will. Just as important is the words that at any time we sincerely desire to Know God, all we need do is “…grope for Him and find Him”, because “He is not far from each one of us”. Thus the words of Yeshua (Joshua/Jesus) that the Kingdom is within us (Luke 17:20-21).
Before we condemn what we are incapable of understanding in our natural organic state of mind, let me remind you that Paul very clearly warned the believers who had received the testimony of Christ that man’s true spiritual reality will appear to them as “foolishness” (1 Cor 2:14) until their carnal nature is overcome through the process of being transformed into a new spiritual being. That man in his natural organic state of mind always judges what he is incapable of understanding, only serves to enslave him under the control of what the Apostle calls the god of this world.
The teachings of the New Covenant were a Gift to man that he might escape this state of self-imposed suffering by walking in The Way, and returning to the Utopian Paradise that is the Destiny of all mankind. That the powers which control this realm are servants of darkness, and seek to destroy the Truth, can be confirmed any time we choose to open our eyes to the world in which we presently dwell. The princes of this world who used religion and the church to rule over the minds of the masses in order to live a lavish lifestyle to the detriment of the masses, is as true today as it was throughout any period in man’s history. That carnal man constantly destroys whatever (spiritual) truth is placed in his hands, is a reality that can easily be observed throughout any time that man has dwelled upon the face of the earth. That all who are truly sincere and absolutely faithful to the Word, and embrace the teachings of The Way in the fullness of their lives, is the only means by which mankind can overcome and escape the darkness and futility of this world.
The teachings of the New Covenant do not require men to blindly believe and have faith in the doctrines of a church or seemingly inspired men -- in fact, the scriptures themselves condemn all people as fools who blindly believe and put their faith in the doctrines of men. The prophesy of the New Covenant is the promise that all who live and dwell in accordance with the Will of the Heavenly Father, will know the Truth because God will personally convey and teach it to them in the Full Revelation of the Indwelling Word. God, therefore, does not depend upon the purity of the many churches of this world -- because mankind is the Living Temple of the Lord. To prove this one only has to make themselves a fit dwelling abode for the Lord -- sanctify their lives in the purity of the Word and the Truth -- understand the workings of the laws which create the natural barriers between realms -- and the gate to the Kingdom will be opened for you to enter therein. While many sincere people of faith believe they are true to the Word in the worship of the Lord -- God does not want your praise and adoration -- but rather, the only genuine expression of worship in the teachings of the New Covenant is the Imitation of Christ.
That the institutionalized churches and governments of this world are always corrupt and turned out of The Way, is again the result of the very partial vision of the people which is always the result of the limitations of mind brought about by the organic nature of the physical body in which the people dwell. In most instances both the (political/religious) leaders are doing the best they can under the circumstances of the lives they are living. One of the keys which is necessary to rectify the congenital obstacle that confronts all of mankind, is a very conscious awareness of the threefold nature of both the self and all of Creation. In the first three chapters of Paul’s First Epistle to the Corinthians we are presented with the cause of the error of both the churches and the governments that man creates and ordains. Man in his natural organic state can only utilize that part of his mind which is carnal and relates to this physical world. Thus, spiritual truths can only be communicated to him through the use of (religious) symbols that open the door within him to man’s own higher reality. While the committed and baptized believers at Corinth had not only been given the whole and complete “Testimony” of Christ, which included all gifts, preaching and knowledge, this congregation of believers were not even prepared to comprehend the Mysteries of God that could only be received by “mature” disciples who had subdued and overcome their physical natures, and could learn the Sacred Secrets of Creation directly from God.
Thus, the problem that confronts man throughout all his trials in life: In the image and likeness of the Sadducees and Pharisees who Yeshua (Joshua/Jesus) condemned, man has been constantly led by religious, government, moral, social and philosophical leaders who have arisen to a position of authority, and yet these leaders have been plagued by the congenital ten percent limitation of mind that inhibits their perception and comprehension of man’s soul and spiritual realities. Only when we begin to understand that the New Testament portrayal of the Sadducees and Pharisees are very much a symbol that not only applies to every aspect of our lives -- and it is in fact the active force in each of us that crucifies the indwelling Christ and alienates us from man’s own higher truth and multidimensional reality -- can we even begin to alleviate the struggles and obstacles of life. Moreover, the flaw that the Atheist, Socialist and secularist see in the religious believer and people of faith -- and vice versa -- is in fact one and the same! So long as we permit ourselves to be led by men and women who are of a natural organic state that utilizes less than ten percent of man’s own potential of mind, we will continue to struggle and be enslaved by the darkness of this world. It does not matter that our religious, political, moral, social and philosophical leaders are well-meaning people who are acting in what appears to be our best interests -- so long as their perception, comprehension, understanding and conscious awareness is limited by the restrictions of man’s congenital natural organic nature, we will continue to dwell in error and confusion.
One of the most important concepts of New Covenant thought that Jesus set before us as the center of all Revelation to those he taught, was the reality that there is only One Teacher -- One Church -- and One Source from which all that exists springs forth and emerges. A false teacher is one who attempts to instruct the people -- rather than demonstrate the manner in which they must live in order to learn directly from the True Teacher. A false church is one that promotes ritual observance and doctrine that is based upon a redemptive philosophy -- rather than a portal that leads men and women along the journey of healing and consecration that is necessary in order to walk in The Way that opens to them the Presence of the Lord. A true teacher and leader is one who shepherds the flock along The Way -- not through a doctrine of perpetual faith, belief and redemption -- but rather, by teaching them the way they must live in order to overcome the three-dimensional boundaries of this world, the natural organic limitations of the physical mind, and the division of the threefold (physical/soul/spirit) self.
In the same way that the Apostle warns the people of the simple faith that the natural organic mind of man cannot comprehend the Mysteries of God because he will perceive them as “foolishness”, neither can the churches of this world replace the One Genuine Church of the Lord that is Spiritual, and cannot be accessed by carnal man. At best, the churches of this world which faithfully proclaim the Word of God, exist as pathways by which the faithful flock come to the teachings of The Way. That the Sadducees and Pharisees were called blind guides who lead the people into the pit, is a universal symbol that applies to everyone in life who are led by religious and secular authorities who are still carnal, and have not themselves overcome their own divided natures.
That the church would fall into error and become an instrument of darkness was more an acknowledgment of the immutable reality of this world -- and once properly understood, could have been predicted by anyone who possesses a fundamental knowledge of the workings of the Laws that control every movement and event that transpires in this realm. What I am saying is that because the Apostle Paul was of an enlightened understanding, he knew that the corruption of the church was guaranteed! There are souls who crave power -- and though they clothe this craving in the garb of shepherding the flock, doing good for others, or making the conditions of this life better, when these leaders who are still of a natural organic state of mind are successful in their endeavor to arise and rule over the church, government and people, the result is always the same. That in the Bible this class of counterfeit religious and secular authorities are called Sadducees, Pharisees, Romans and the people of the Nations, does not negate the fact that what was true then remains true to this very day! Therefore, with respect to the defilement and corruption of the church, this great looming fact that afflicts and plagues mankind throughout every age he has ever dwelled upon the fact of the earth was as true in the time of Paul, as it is today.
In our search for truth it is therefore important for us to further recognize that in order for the prophetic vision of the Apostle Paul to fully manifest, it was absolutely necessary for the genuine teachings and concepts of The Way to become suppressed, in order for the counterfeit gospel to totally dominate the thinking, beliefs and lifestyle of the people who called themselves Christian. To accomplish this it became necessary for the Church of Constantine to be totally severed from its original Hebrew/Jewish roots. Because our present-day scriptures have been altered from their original form, we fail to realize one of the most profound doctrines that the Bible attempts to convey to the reader -- i.e., contrary to popular belief, the Jews never rejected the Messiah -- what the New Testament portrays is the very real conflict between the Jews of the Light, and the impostor Jews of the darkness -- and this portrayal is so universal to the plight of all men in this world, that if we could see the greater reality of life more clearly, we would immediately understand the present-day conflict between the Genuine Christian and the impostor Christian.
The Jews of the Light were Spiritual Israel who worshiped the True God -- i.e., their Elders had themselves to varying degrees overcome their organic nature and congenital carnal limitations, and they understood that one finds Truth and Knowledge by manifesting the Light in their lives. The god of the secular Jewish sects of the Sadducees and the Pharisees who are condemned in the New Testament, is a god that is born out of the natural expression of a mind limited by the three-dimensional barrier of this world -- and is in fact the same god that was worshiped in the Church of Constantine, and was the same god which the Apostle Paul calls the god of this world. Once properly understood in universal terms, we can easily observe that this same god is the god of the Nations -- which allegiance to this god is recited daily by public school children across the land when they proclaim the words “one nation under God” -- and again is the same as that which is being preached throughout the greater majority of our churches which call themselves Christian to this very day!
How can I say this? Perhaps I can best use the example of the United States of America as an example of what is required to lay the foundational principles that must be embraced if a genuine Godly people are to arise from the confusion and corruption of this world. In the first place we must begin by recognizing that the United States was designed to be a totally departure from the manner in which the rest of the nations of the earth were governed. Secondly, it was not only brought about by the direct Hand of God working upon the hearts and minds of the people, but we must also begin to acknowledge that while all people were created equal, they are neither the same -- and this great variation in the knowledge, abilities and spiritual awareness causes each of us to enter into any given life in a very unequal manner.
When our forefathers who molded our Constitutional form of government spoke of the need for separation of church and state, this separation was absolutely necessary in order to create a truly Godly Nation. Once properly understood, church and government are in fact synonymous -- and in order to become a Godly Nation, the people must be free from the restraint of both manmade church doctrines of belief, as well as secular control and restraint. If man is to grow beyond the boundaries and limitations of this three-dimensional physical reality, then he must become a Citizen of Heaven -- i.e., he must be taught by the One Teacher, and he must be a subject to the Authority of the One Ruler of the Universe. What the Constitution of the United States attempted to create was a nation where quasi-religious and political-secular authority was inhibited by law from injecting themselves between the people and God -- and thereby subjecting the people to the same error and servitude to the powers of darkness that ruled Europe and the other nations of the world.
Truth is acquired and learned one step at a time by manifesting Truth in one’s daily life. A primary ingredient to the equation with respect to those who desire to grow in Truth, is to become fully cognizant of the paradoxical nature of this world. Thus, the Hebrew and biblical perception of the term Messiah denotes a (holy) man who has become Anointed by God -- and this Anointing is closely tied to the willingness and desire of man to fully embrace the Divine Law and system of ethics that man is required to live in accordance with. Once the Divine Law is properly understood it can be seen that if a man and woman who lived on a secluded island began to embrace the Law that the scriptures states is written in the heart of man, the Lord would come and teach and sanctify them. Regardless of the fact that this is a core teaching of the New Covenant, (Heb 8:10-11 NIV), it was fundamentally rejected by Constantine and his priestly hierarchy who for their own gain imposed the doctrine upon the people that man can only find salvation through membership in the Church.
Among the Jews it was required to live in accordance with the Law of God -- and while the Apostle Paul was correct in his assertion that the ritual observance practiced by the Sadducees and Pharisees would not provide them the salvation they sought, we must also recognize that the warning of Yeshua (Joshua/Jesus) is also true as seen in 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).
What is it that is being said to us in these words? Very clearly, where the modern Christian believes that the Law was done away with, Yeshua (Joshua/Jesus) states the opposite -- confirming that the Law will remain in effect until “…heaven and earth pass away”. Why? Because all things in this world are held in balance through immutable laws -- and in the same way that there are laws which control every event that transpires in this physical world, there are also Higher Laws that once invoked, guide us through the wilderness of life to the gate of the Promised Land. The problem is that we view the Law of Moses with a carnal perception that is very incomplete -- and does not always make rational sense.
That the Law of Moses which is contained in the scriptures portray a series of important symbols and forms that once turned and observed within oneself, expands our natural organic consciousness to the degree where it overcomes the three-dimensional barrier of this world, is the true revelation of the scriptures where Yeshua (Joshua/Jesus) states that the Mysteries of God are not given to everyone, but only to those who are worthy to receive them: “And as soon as He was alone, His followers, along with the twelve, began asking Him about the parables. And He was saying to them, ‘To you has been given the mystery of the kingdom of God; but those who are outside get everything in parables, in order that while seeing, they may see and not perceive; and while hearing, they may hear and not understand lest they return and be forgiven’” (Mark 4:10-12 NAS).
What this means is that only those who have overcome the three-dimensional barrier of this world, and have begun to utilize those parts of their minds that lie dormant in the majority of people because they relate to realms where that part of their consciousness which we call our soul and spirit exists, are able to receive the Mysteries of God that Jesus warns are concealed from the multitudes. Moreover, the knowledge of how to grow, expand, and develop our consciousness by virtue of being able to access a higher potential of mind than is normally realized by man in his natural organic state, is revealed to the disciple in the symbolism and forms that are employed in the Law of Moses.
Once this great truth is understood, we can begin to comprehend why Jesus stated that until “…heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled”, -- i.e., because it is this knowledge that is implemented in the life of the faithful disciple who follows the Master’s footsteps in The Way. To those who have true faith and are willing to live their lives in accordance with the Commandments, the promise of the New Covenant is that the Son of God will personally come to you and guide you through the maze of Law and levels of being -- teach you all the Mysteries of God -- and lead you into the Kingdom. Thus, it is from this perspective of the Law and the Prophets that the Apostle Paul said that man is saved by faith in the (coming) of the Lord.
the Jewish sects of the Sadducees and Pharisees only related the elements of
the Law of Moses to the things of this world -- never turning it within
themselves -- and never seeking the soul and spirit of the Law -- is the
reason why Jesus condemned them as hypocrites: “Woe to
you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter
in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered” (Luke 11:52
NKJ). Enter in where?
They were hypocrites because they did not use the Key of Knowledge to
enter in within the inner Kingdom (Luke 17:21).
the above quotation at Mark 4:12, we see the words that those who are outside
-- i.e., their consciousness is anchored to the things of this physical world
-- cannot receive the Higher Knowledge of Creation in the form of the
Mysteries of God, until “…they return and be forgiven”.
Return to where? In
the parable of the prodigal son we are provided an entirely different picture
of life than our Darwinist perception that is culturally embraced today.
Where we think of our birth into this world as the beginning of our
journey into life, what the Bible teaches is that we at one time dwelled in
the Kingdom with our Heavenly Father until we ventured into this, the far
country -- and it is this return that must be commenced if we are to receive
forgiveness and salvation. Thus,
the idea embraced by carnal Jews who believe they will be sanctified by a
ritual observance of the Law, is as equally flawed as the doctrine embraced by
carnal Christians who believe they can continue to live in accordance with the
culture and limitations of this world, and receive the salvation they desire
to receive. What the New
Testament very clearly teaches is the requirement for the prodigal sons to
reverse direction, follow in the footsteps of the Master, and thereby invoke
the symbols and forms of the Law within themselves -- and it is only these
genuine faithful believers who inherit the Promise when they walk in The Way
and gain entrance into the Kingdom.
a further examination of the above quotation at Mark 4:10-12 we can observe a
statement pertaining to one of the most important concepts revealed to man in
both the Old and New Testaments -- so much so, that because both the majority
of believers and non-believers alike have failed to heed the message revealed
in the parable of the sower and the seed, that each have been severely misled
in their attempt to comprehend the true meaning of the Bible and all such
sacred writings. This great
truth is in fact presented to us in the words of Jesus when
he warned his followers and disciples: “Know ye not this parable? and how
then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13 KJV).
What this means is that only those who embrace the Word of God so as to
become the seed sown on good ground, and bring forth spiritual fruit in their
lives, will understand the true meaning and depth of the scriptures.
Why? For the same
reason that the Apostle Paul warns that men of a natural organic mind are
unable to perceive man’s own soul and spiritual reality, and will view the
Mysteries of God as “foolishness” (1 Cor 2:14).
What this means is that unless we have begun to grow and develop our
minds on the nourishment of the Word -- and we have embraced a manner of life
that is in accordance with the teachings of The Way -- rejecting all manmade
religious and secular doctrines and clinging only to the level of Truth that
has been revealed to us -- we will remain carnal, and unable to comprehend the
true meaning and depth of the scriptures which are written in a three-fold
It is not until we begin to understand that the scriptures are timeless -- i.e., that the Sadducees, Pharisees, Jews, Romans, Greeks, and the people of the Nations who worship the elemental powers of this realm -- and especially sex and materialism -- are not only present in the world around us, but represent elements of mind within us that we must struggle to overcome in our quest to return to the Kingdom from which we originally emerged. Ritual observance of either the Law or church sacraments cannot fulfill the requirement that the prodigal son must return to the Kingdom. It is impossible for an Atheist or person attached to our modern-day culture to perceive the true meaning of the Bible. Our biblical scholars and religious authorities who attempt to study the scriptures without intimately embracing the spiritual lifestyle necessary to possess a three-fold perception of the sacred writings, and without turning the Key of Knowledge within themselves, are no different than the Sadducees and Pharisees who attempted to teach their doctrines of belief to a lost and misdirected people. Only the true servants and disciples of the Lord are those who can perceive the soul and the spirit of the scriptures when their eyes are opened when they come into the Presence of the Lord. And it is the true servants of the Lord who do not preach the Gospel -- but rather, who guide the faithful flock into a life that is consecrated to living and walking in The Way, so the people are able to enter into the Presence of the One Teacher, and learn the Mysteries of God from the Source of all Light and Knowing.
In our search for Truth and the meaning of Life today, it is absolutely imperative that we become cognizant of the doctrinal burden of the past that we have inherited. We must recognize that the Protestant Reformation only produced very partial results with respect to the restoration of the teachings of The Way. It is important that we become totally aware of the political implications and impact that the Church of Constantine has had on our lives -- what we believe -- and the manner in which we perceive the world in which we are presently dwelling. Thus, Constantine was a political ruler who viewed religion as an important tool in the control of the masses of people who were subjects of his empire. In order to maintain the hierarchical structure and organization/institutional integrity of the Church, it was necessary for Constantine to totally sever his Church from the biblical elements that were the foundational support for the Gospel Message to mature in the hearts of the genuine believers. The great looming obstacle that anchors our thinking to the customs and culture of this world today, is our failure to recognize that it was not the Roman Empire that was converted to the religion of Yehshua (Joshua/Jesus) -- but rather, the religion of the New Covenant that was converted to the already existing religion of the Roman Empire.
paramount question that concerns each and every person who has ever lived upon
the face of the earth was reportedly asked: “Now a man came up to Jesus
and asked, Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life? Why do you
ask me about what is good? Jesus replied. There is only One who is good. If
you want to enter life, obey the commandments” (Matt 19:16-17 NIV).
The problem this question and statement raises is not easy for either
Jew or Christian to answer -- i.e., can man survive death and obtain what the
Bible calls eternal life by doing what Jesus states by “…obeying
the commandments”? The
problem is that while the Bible states that: “Whoever walks blamelessly
will be saved” (Prov 28:18 NKJ) -- because carnal man is fundamentally
incapable of understanding the terms eternal life or saved with respect to one
who “…walks blamelessly”, the church has rejected both the words
of Jesus and the scriptures.
our endeavor to restore the teachings of The Way to its original purity and
form, it is imperative for us to understand the true meaning of this term that
is interpreted “…walks blamelessly”.
Strongs Concordance defines this word as it appears in the King James
Version as meaning: “without blemish, complete, full, perfect, sincerely
(-ity), sound, without spot, undefiled, upright (-ly), whole.”
While the greater majority of Christians have a problem with such terms
as without blemish, perfect, without spot, and undefiled, the key that enables
us to both understand what is required, as well as how one can be saved by “…obeying
the commandments”, is found in the words complete and whole.
The modern believing community will say: Man was born in sin, and he cannot be perfect. What they fail to perceive in both the scriptures, as well as within themselves, is that man is imperfect because he is incomplete -- i.e., so long as he remains divided and separated from his soul and spiritual natures, he will continue to remain lost in what the parable of the prodigal son portrays as the “far country” -- and thus, the thing that we unknowingly define as sin, is in reality the squandering away of our vital life-force that the parable portrays as our inheritance on the material things of this world. Only when carnal man begins to perceive that he exists in a threefold form and nature that consciously exists simultaneously across the spectrum of multiple dimensions and realms, can he begin to understand how the terms complete, whole and perfect apply to the life he is living. Thus, while it is true that a ritual observance of the Law of Moses cannot save a person with respect to the gift of eternal life, we must also pose the question of why Jesus told the man who asked him what he must do in order to be saved that he must “…obey the commandments”?
If you accept that the authors of the Bible possessed a more elevated perception of life, and that the Apostle Paul was correct when he predicted that the god of this world would soon rule over the church which would call itself Christian, then you must also accept the idea that the being portrayed as the Prince of Darkness saw that it was necessary to divide the Jewish and Christian world in order to better maintain control over the hearts and minds of the disillusioned people who though they believed they were calling upon the name of God, were in fact seduced into worshiping the god of this world. From the perspective of the predicted absolute control over the church, the problem was that because the Jews often maintained an intimate connection with the precepts of the Law of Moses, and the adherence to the Law had the potential to unlock the secrets of the written word of the scriptures, in the creation of the shadow church it was essential that the Jews and Christians remain separate and apart from one another. It was therefore the same force that moved the Church of the Roman Empire to worship the antichrist that further orchestrated the creation of a division between the Jews and the Christians.
To even begin to contemplate the reasons why, we must again examine one of the most ignored passages of scripture that is found at Luke 11:52 where Yehshua (Joshua/Jesus) acknowledged that the scribes and Pharisees possessed the Key of Knowledge. Christians should very seriously ask how Yehshua (Joshua/Jesus) could make such a statement? Once we fully accept the words of the Bible, and we begin to comprehend that the teachers of the Jewish Law had it within their power to use the Keys of Knowledge (Luke 11:52) to reveal the soul and spiritual meaning of the written word of the scriptures through the process of turning the written word within themselves -- i.e., performing the rituals in their inner Temple instead of a temple of this world that is made by the hands of men -- it can be seen that this well defined biblical concept was condemned because it was detrimental to Christianity as an institutionalized church under the control of Rome. If one accepts Paul’s doctrine on the existence of the Prince of Darkness -- i.e., a supernatural force/being who endeavored to take over and rule the church -- one will immediately see that it was therefore necessary to insure that the separation of Jew and Christian was maintained in order to further inhibit both religious groups from walking in The Way. That the majority of Jews were not cognizant of what the Son of God referred to as the Key of Knowledge, and neither did they therefore know how to apply this Key in their life to open up the gate to the Kingdom of God that Jesus taught existed within all of mankind (Luke 17:20-21), was because they adopted and made concessions with the heathen culture, and failed to live in strict accord with their own scriptures. The Christians, of course, took the error of the Jews to a new level when they secularized and installed the church as the state religion of Pagan Rome.
When I write that the modern believer has been disenfranchised from the essence of the teachings of The Way by the shadow church of Constantine, few readers today possess enough understanding of the enormity and purpose of life itself to perceive what I am attempting to convey. Again, I must ask your patience, because this higher purpose can only be revealed one step at a time. What I will demonstrate throughout this book is that the teachings of The Way only embrace the modern concepts of faith and belief in so far as these concepts pertain to the development of the mind and spirit of the believer in the process of the next stage of birth. What Jesus truly taught was that unless we experience this next stage of birth, then in many ways we will cease to exist. We will not go to Glory, as is commonly believed among many Christian groups today -- nor will we reincarnate, as the title of this book suggests -- and neither will we simply cease to exist, as the Atheist’s believe. Yet, because of the paradoxical nature of Creation, all of these beliefs do hold a germ of truth -- and by virtue of what is called the Near Death Experience, we can observe where it does appear that man survives death. The problem is that because few people are prepared to comprehend man’s ultimate spiritual reality, they simply are not able to envision or understand man’s own eventual fate.
Man’s own antagonist and enemy is no other force but himself! Because we fail to understand that there are three stages to the birth process -- of which our physical birth into this world was the first phase -- the fate of the greater majority of mankind is that they will die without ever having entered into the Life that is promised in the scriptures. The concept of salvation through faith and belief in the Lord cannot be separated from our willingness to live in accordance with the teachings of the indwelling Word of God that nourishes us as we grow to a state of true maturity and completion. In the same way that the mental facilities and powers of mind are embryonic in relation to a mature adult, our own facilities and powers of mind are embryonic in relation to our soul and spiritual natures. While it is true that we came into existence at physical conception and birth -- and because we are a unique expression of our pre-existent soul, our whole understanding of such doctrines as reincarnation is defective -- so too is our belief that we will go to Glory with the Lord through a profession of faith and belief without undergoing the next two stages of birth that is necessary for us to enter into Life. Only when we begin to understand the pattern of Creation -- a pattern working in both our own lives and the world in which we presently dwell -- can we begin the process of nurturing our embryonic mind in the endeavor to embrace true soul and spiritual growth which has the power to make us conscious of our own higher reality.
The great looming reality that each of us must confront in our search for Truth and Light is the often conveyed biblical teaching that we only see and understand a very partial perception of man’s true reality. Thus, scripture would be totally ineffective for the purpose it was intended, unless it was written and composed in such a manner that it would lead the blind of this world step by step out of this realm of darkness. And if we ask why all of mankind is spoken of as being blind throughout the Bible, it is because having only passed through the initial stage of physical birth, our mind and powers of reason are embryonic in relation to the beings of Divine emanation which the scriptures state that we truly are. The problem is that, in the manner of an infant, because man in his carnal, natural, organic state of being, is incapable of even envisioning his own true reality -- and he always attempts to destroy what he is incapable of assimilating -- the wise men of the past were forced to place the knowledge of the secrets of life beyond carnal man’s reach -- i.e., thus, the key to man’s dilemma is found lying beneath the forms and symbols of the written word of the scriptures. The result is that, in order to retrieve this knowledge of the secrets to life and learn to utilize the Key of Knowledge to open the inner gate to the soul and spirit of man, the person in search of the Mysteries of God must thoroughly embrace the necessary mindset and foundational framework of thinking which was placed in what we today call the parables of the New Testament -- which parables contain the core elements of the teachings of The Way. Yet, in most instances the culture, churches and secular laws of our modern-day society has made it impossible to actually live in the lifestyle which is ordained in the teachings of the New Covenant -- a lifestyle that enables the believer to experience the next stages of birth and fully manifest their soul and spiritual natures. The result is that unless we break loose of the limitations and stranglehold of our culture, and begin the process of intimately embracing the teachings of The Way so we can experience the next stages of birth, our fate will be in the manner of a miscarried fetus, and our own death and demise will be imminent.
Are we a free people today? While it is true that we possess the illusion of freedom, in most instances genuine freedom which was declared to be the God-given birthright of every American, has been placed beyond the reach of those who attempt to embrace it. Why? We are confronted with a series of great obstacles whenever we attempt to live in accordance with the biblical lifestyle and mindset that was ordained by the visionaries and holy men and women who preserved the Truth for succeeding generations of people who turned to the scriptures in their search for the Sacred Secrets of Life. The problem is that our cultural mindset which to this very day remains thoroughly imbued with the very limited vision of both the doctrines of the Church of Constantine, as well as men such as Darwin who possessed a very incomplete and flawed vision of life and Creation, has so alienated modern man from his own true self, that a more elevated perception of reality is often seen even beyond his ability to even imagine. Yet, the knowledge that both men of science and religion seek with respect to their quest to comprehend the answers to the enigmas of life have not only been set before us to ponder and contemplate -- but because of our own culturally imposed blindness that shackles and inhibits our growth and development, we simply fail to see the great truths that lie before us.
If I could convey one great concept that both the Bible and modern scientific findings agree upon that must be embraced in order to position us on the road to Higher Truth, it is that we are a great deal more than the person whose appearance we perceive when we view the reflection of our physical image in the mirror. That our present-day science has confirmed the biblical assertion that we only perceive a very limited perception of reality with the physical senses of the body in which we presently dwell, is directly related to the less than ten percent potential of mind that the majority of people are able to use. Thus, the dilemma that confronts each and every one of us in our search for the meaning of life: That man exists simultaneously across the spectrum of a multiple of dimensions and realms -- that unbeknown to each and every man and woman, they possesses an innate connection to the Absolute Source of all Truth, and by virtue of their royal heritage they have the capacity to learn the Mysteries of God directly from this Source -- and that these advanced abilities of mind that permit certain individuals to perceive reality beyond the three-dimensional limitations of this world are developed over the course of many such lives that our pre-existent soul is presently living -- is simply beyond the ability of the carnal men and women whose thinking is in accordance with the culture of this world to even envision.
And in seeing these things I understood the true depth of the Master’s words: “If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32 NAS). Because the modern Christian has been imbued with quasi-Darwinist thinking and doctrines of belief that were forced upon the church by the Emperor Constantine in the fourth century, it is truly difficult for people today to comprehend the means by which the disciples of the Lord will know the truth -- resulting in the fact that we confuse the term belief, with the first-hand experiential knowledge that is promised in the New Testament. The Disciples of the Light will know the Truth, because the inner walls of division that separates man’s embryonic consciousness from his indwelling soul and spiritual natures, as well as the inner Source of Light which the scriptures call the Son of God, will be overcome -- as the genuine believer becomes a mature Consecrated Vessel that Manifests the Light of the Father within themselves.
man’s plight in this world is best portrayed in Today’s English Version
(TEV) of the Bible where it translates the Apostle Paul’s declaration to the
people in his Epistle to the Romans: “So then, my brothers, we have an
obligation, but it is not to live as our human nature wants us to. For if you
live according to your human nature, you are going to die; but if by the
Spirit you put to death your sinful actions, you will live. Those who are led
by God’s Spirit are God’s sons. For the Spirit that God has given you does
not make you slaves and cause you to be afraid; instead, the Spirit makes you
God’s children, and by the Spirit’s power we cry out to God, ‘Father! my
Father!’ God’s Spirit joins himself to our spirits to declare that we are
God’s children. Since we are his children, we will possess the blessings he
keeps for his people, and we will also possess with Christ what God has kept
for him; for if we share Christ’s suffering, we will also share his glory”
we were nothing more than the flesh and blood of our “human nature”
that we observe in our reflected image when we view ourselves in the mirror,
then it would be impossible for us to put to death this human nature and live
in accordance with the Spirit. Once
our multidimensional nature is properly understood, only then are we able to
comprehend that these words of the Apostle go far beyond such common religious
terms as faith and belief -- with respect to the abstract and theoretical
faith and belief that is observed among believers today when they attempt to
live in accordance with our modern hedonistic culture which is totally
anchored to the fulfillment of man’s human and sensual nature!
The genuine faith and belief which the Apostle makes reference to is
that faith and belief we embrace when we work and strive to live our lives in
exact conformity with the teachings of The Way -- and thereby permit the
process of soul and spiritual birth to begin working within us.
As I contemplated these extended realities of man that had been revealed to me in my inward journey of prayer and meditation, I found myself once again being drawn out of that life that I had lived as Jacob and into the present time. I understood that the Being of Light in whose presence I had entered was in fact my own soul -- very much as the soul of the Master Jesus -- and yet very different because the soul of the Master Jesus was At-One with the Father. Thus, the soul of the Master Jesus was a perfected soul, while my own soul was itself immersed in the stages of development that each and every soul must embrace and endure on the road to spiritual completion. And as I was permitted to look into this realm that was the natural habitat of souls, I saw the souls of others -- and I realized that some of these Beings of Light were the souls of people I knew in this life. And each soul not only appeared different as it presented itself to me, but actually impressed upon me a dissimilar and distinctive vibration that was the result of their own unique experiences across the spectrum of time as we know it. And even though these souls did not have a physical body, as the people of this world are accustomed to seeing themselves, I knew the identity of each soul by the essence of their vibratory nature which through the process of the infusion of thought and mind, they intimately impressed within me when I came into their presence.
Astoundingly, I realized that the souls of the people who would be considered my adversaries, antagonists, and even my enemies in this world, were very much my friends in this realm where the souls of all people dwelled. I saw the souls of the people I knew as my mother, father, sister and brothers. I saw the souls of my friends. And it saddened me as I realized that our modern-day culture and manmade doctrines of belief had made the people who I shared my life with aliens to their own true selves! Because of the limitations and restrictions our society and culture has placed upon them, the people I knew in this life neither knew who they were, and neither were they even prepared to begin to grasp the most elementary and basic understanding of themselves with respect to their own true reality. In most instances, everything they cherished and pursued in their lives possessed very little meaning with respect to the reality of their soul and spiritual natures.
As I gazed upon what had been presented to me in this extended vision of life, I understood why the Bible refers to the people who live in accordance with their human nature as being dead: “…For if you live according to your human nature, you are going to die”. I also realized that because man’s true reality is beyond even their ability to imagine, and it was the very modern-day culture that they considered enlightened and good that in fact anchored them to the carnal nature that would ultimately bring about their own demise, in most instances there was little I could do that would help them unless they truly confronted the futility of their circumstances of life, and began to embrace a genuine change of heart and mind.
In recognition of the fact that the scriptures are written in a code -- i.e., the language of the soul and spirit -- and that the sacred writings are written in this manner because truth is indeed stranger than fiction -- and because the ability to perceive and understand the reality of man’s extended natures requires the development of mind -- the absolute need to reveal the Mysteries of God one concept at a time in order to evolve the thinking of the disciple as they begin the transition from carnal, physical beings, into spiritually mature children of God, I began to understand the wisdom and genus of the holy men of the past who composed the Bible. How could I even begin to convey a vision of man’s soul and spiritual reality to a people who were totally immersed and anchored to our materialistic/sensual three-dimensional cultural understanding of life that we embrace today? They would immediately look upon me as a nut -- a deranged person who is unable to come to terms with the realities of life. Psychologists and mental health practitioners routinely treat people who even begin to embrace the gateway thinking that opens the door to man’s higher reality.
In our society today religion is often viewed as a necessary crutch for weak-minded people -- while genuine religion that requires strict adherence to biblical teachings and concepts is viewed as an abnormality. Social workers and judges protect children from parents whose opinions are not in strict accord with our cultural thinking. Churches reject what the Apostle calls the Mysteries of God as occultism and heresy. Our system of public education totally destroys the very foundational fabric of mind that is necessary to nurture and develop, in order for children to become aware of their extended soul and spiritual realities. Our music, television, and entertainment media strengthens the elements of mind that severs us from our own higher nature.
Thus, I began to perceive my plight in the wisdom of the scriptures. A saying attributed to Jesus that is difficult for us to ignore because it is not only quoted by Clement of Alexandria as an authentic teaching which is contained in the original Hebrew Gospel of Matthew, but is also found in the Oxyrhynchus Papyri discovered in the late nineteenth century, and is further found in the newly discovered Gospel of Thomas in the Nag Hammaddi Library, is these words: “He shall not cease from seeking until he finds, and having found, he will be amazed, and having been amazed will reign, and having reigned will rest”. I found myself not only amazed, but in the realization that I could not share my knowledge with even my closest of friends and family, I fully understood the wisdom of the Apostle Paul when he warned the believers of the simple faith that the Mysteries of God would be perceived as “…foolishness to them, and they cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NIV). The problem was that there was very little substance in the lives of the average American that even remotely prepared them to embrace man’s true multidimensional reality.
When Constantine killed and ravished the genuine people of The Way, and set up his shadow church which attempted to secularize and institutionalize the message of the Gospel, what he ultimately did was destroy the very essence of the teachings of the New Covenant. Though what I was experiencing was foreign to our modern understanding of life which has evolved out of fourth-century church doctrine, my being permitted into these parallel realms that are indigenous to man’s soul and spiritual natures is well established in the Bible. Thus, Paul writes: “Fourteen years ago I was taken up to heaven for a visit. Don’t ask me whether my body was there or just my spirit, for I don’t know; only God can answer that. But anyway, there I was in paradise, and heard things so astounding that they are beyond a man’s power to describe or put in words (and anyway I am not allowed to tell them to others)” (2 Cor 12:2-4 TLB). If we are to even start to embrace man’s true potential of being, then it is important that we begin to entertain the wisdom of the scriptures when we are told that man’s own extended reality that he associates with his soul and spirit is “…beyond a man’s power to describe or put in words”. Just as important is the idea that those who are permitted into these parallel realms are “…not allowed to tell… others” when they re-emerge back into this world! Why? Because man’s own extended reality and the Mysteries of God would be perceived as “…foolishness to them, and they cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NIV). What we fail to understand today is that when Jesus promised to enlighten his disciples to the Truth, an important part of this enlightenment was brought about through the elimination of the inner walls of division that separates man’s physical, soul and spiritual natures.
And as I came into the presence of the soul who was my wife in this life, I saw and understood that she played a vital role in my success with respect to my pursuit of spiritual truths – a vital role that is for the most part overlooked by the majority of men and women in both the past and the present who have attempted to walk the spiritual path of life. The soul, which is asexual, enters this life polarized to male or female. In understanding that both my wife and I each brought important and vital elements into the relationship that enabled me to open the door to higher spiritual realization – i.e., to see and understand the great truths and realities of life that was beyond the comprehension of the majority of other people – was the result of a combination of factors that was present in my life. And as I came into the presence of the soul of my wife, I immediately understood that we were spiritual travelers who had been together over the course of the ages in the manner that we perceive time. As a woman, she possessed great intuitive powers of mind that were suppressed in the polarity of my own male nature -- and together, we brought together and merged necessary ingredients that permitted the development of higher consciousness in our lives. Thus, once properly understood, it is seen that in the very pattern of Creation is manifest the necessary elements that must be embraced throughout every stage of the threefold birth that man must endure in order to enter into the Kingdom. In the same way that a child is born into this world through the physical merging of the essence of man and woman, man himself enters the next stage of birth through the merging of the paradoxical opposites of mind that is preserved and represented in the polarity of man and woman. True spiritual growth is accomplished when a man and woman are able to create within themselves a union of the soul -- as they embrace the higher reality of husband and wife in a genuine spiritual marriage where the two become One Flesh.
As the enormity of my experience began to take shape in my mind, I came to realize that the realm of the souls was a place of harmony -- i.e., what was opposites in the physical world did not exist in the realm of the souls. In recognition of this great truth I began to realize the essence of the wisdom of the ancients with respect to their doctrine of the Two Great Powers of Creation that had to be negated within the life of the individual person. I also realized that Marxism, Humanism, and the concept that man has the ability to build a utopia on earth, was in fact unknowingly molded by an innate knowledge of the realm of souls that was part of the psyche of every person -- i.e., because all division has been negated, the realm of souls is in fact the utopian world that is the true source of the visionary dreams of the more liberal and socialistic philosophers of this physical world. Marx believed that mankind could live in a state of harmony, because this harmony is indigenous to the realm from which the souls of all men emanate. Further, I understood that because carnal man is unable to embrace the harmony and brotherhood envisioned in the teachings of the New Testament, mankind has made himself an alien not only to the Word of God, but to the very utopian world where his own soul dwells.
The picture of man’s higher reality that I was observing immediately conveyed to me the senselessness of man’s present-day human and philosophical struggles. In the realm of souls, what present-day political philosophy considers left and right wing extremist thinking, exists in harmony and is married and merged into One Higher Reality. Thus, popular Socialistic/Democratic liberal thought that is based upon a quasi-Humanistic philosophy, is in fact harmonized with traditional Conservative/Republican thought that is God Centered. Once properly understood from the perspective of man’s true source of being, it is realized that both schools of thought are seen as natural expressions that are triggered by the innate soul-knowledge of the respective philosophical adherents -- and their divisive and conflicting states of parochial separation in this physical world actually inhibits the people’s perception of man’s own higher reality. In the manner of male and female, genuine philosophy and religion can only be envisioned when the liberal/socialist left is made “one flesh” in a true marriage with its right wing conservative counterpart.
In order for the left-leaning vision of utopia and the right-leaning search for the Kingdom to be realized, the left and right must be merged equally together, and the child of higher truth must be conceived, born and matured. That those who are moderates -- i.e., being neither right nor left actually equates to standing for nothing -- and have been philosophically compared to the skunk in the middle of the road that gets run over, is also true of the majority of people who have been proverbially called “the great unwashed”. Thus, the reality of life is that because modern man is unable to harmonize the world of opposites that were very clearly defined and understood by the ancients, man has in fact made himself a stranger to himself! That the most essential merging of the opposites begins with the Genesis pattern of Creation in the husband and wife becoming One Flesh, is to man’s own demise a great truth that is generally ignored by those in search of the Mysteries of God.
As I gazed about me in this strange world that was the natural habitat of the Beings of Light, I could see that undeveloped souls were seen as flickering small lights -- other souls varied in intensity and shape in accordance with the experiences and development throughout what we call time. And as I came into the presence of the Great Souls who had over the course of many lives evolved mentally and spiritually, I could easily begin to comprehend why there is such great variance in human potential and development. In fact, it could easily be said that the Great Souls were like gods in comparison to the others -- and this was especially true of Jesus, the soul who had been my Master and Teacher in my first-century life as Jacob, and who was the very embodiment of Perfection and Godliness. In this Soul was the total manifestation of the Light of the Father-God.
And as I thought on these strange things I had witnessed, I began to understand that each soul is itself a vessel that manifests the level and quality of Light that they are able to contain. At the dawn of what we call Creation, each soul came into being as they inherited the spark of Divinity that made them the Offspring of the One God. The problem was that while they were created in the image of God, they did not share in His Likeness. Thus, this physical world can be compared to a school for souls where each of us grows and matures through our many failures and accomplishments. The problem is that the wisdom of the ancients was correct -- i.e., we dwell in a realm of opposites -- and we can only overcome the trials of life when we merge these opposites into a harmonious union and marriage where the child of Truth is born within us.
I saw that in the realm of the souls, which was a world of higher reality, there was a common brotherhood that was the result of the realization that all were of the One Essence. There were no men and women, because the souls of all beings existed in the harmonic balance of what we call the polarity of the sexes. Thus, even though the soul of my wife was not female, her soul was very much my companion in this and all other worlds that we had traveled together over the course of our growth and development. Further, in this realm of the souls there was no division of races -- i.e., there were no white, black, yellow, red or brown souls. I realized that the soul could be envisioned as a vessel which accumulated Light (the essence of vital life-force that is our inheritance from God) in accordance with each soul’s development over the course of its experiences of life in the physical world where carnal men and women dwell. In the same way that an infant is destined to grow and develop into a mature man or woman, the soul is destined to grow and develop into a mature Being of Light. Thus, I saw that what we perceive to be an accident -- a chance encounter with fate -- or even the luck of the draw -- has been orchestrated and set in motion by a series of natural organic laws that control every aspect of the lives we live on the face of the earth. Moreover, the freedom that we think we have, is little more than the illusion of freedom. Ultimately, this means that everything in the life that man lives in the physical world has a reason and purpose beyond his carnal understanding -- a reason and purpose that moves him in accordance with the Destiny and Divine Plan of Creation.
Perhaps the great flaw in the fundamentalist perception of the written word is seen in the fact that, in the same way that man is multidimensional, so too is the written word of the scriptures. Where on one level the parables and teachings of the Bible portray our relationship to our soul, these same parables portray our soul’s relationship to our own spiritual nature -- and again portray our physical/soul/spiritual relationship to the Son of God and the Kingdom of our Heavenly Father. Thus, the Bible is a Universal Oracle of Truth that is itself a multidimensional writing that once properly understood, is the Guide for those of us who pursue the journey of The Way on our return as the Prodigal Sons into the Kingdom of the Light. Those men and women whose consciousness is carnal, see only the words that are used to clothe the soul and spirit. Those dedicated believers who are in search of the Truth, and are willing to open their minds to man’s innate higher reality, are able to look beyond the mere words as they receive the impressions of the soul. While only those who have overcome their carnal natures, and have themselves become Spiritual, are able to receive the Whole of the Revelation directly from the Teacher who Instructs all Disciples of the Light who become Consecrated into the True Teachings of The Way. Thus, the purpose of the churches in this world is to act as portals through which the people of the simple faith enter into the beginning of The Way. The True Church is One -- it can never be defiled by the forces of darkness that pervade this world -- and in the same way that the Kingdom is within us (Luke 17:20-21), the One True Church can only be entered by those who walk in The Way.
Perhaps one of the greatest flaws in the vision of both the believer and non-believer skeptic, is seen when we attempt to read our perception of time into the scriptures. The present-day concept of the Bible as an historical writing is in fact totally foreign to the true nature of the text. In order to successfully make use of the New Testament scriptures, one must begin the endeavor by totally eliminating the concept of time, and embrace the writings wholly in the present. What are the ramifications? In the same way that the carnally minded listeners at the time Jesus spoke to the people only heard the words, so too do the carnally minded readers only perceive the written words of the scriptures. Again, as it was in the past, it remains true today -- i.e., those who have been cleansed from the defilements of this world, and have begun to seek the Lord in Spirit and Truth, have begun to open the door to their indwelling soul and spiritual natures, and themselves are able to perceive the soul of the scriptures. Lastly, those who have made themselves genuine disciples of the Lord, are able to transcend the three-dimensional barrier of this world, and are able to learn in the Presence of the One Teacher that has been Ordained by the Father as the only True Source of Knowledge. Thus, the genuine believer and disciple comes to understand the absolute timelessness and validity of the Master’s words when He promised the faithful flock: “If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32 NAS).
Contrary to modern fundamentalist thought, the Bible is not the Word of God in the manner of a final revelation in the manner that we think -- but rather, the Bible is the guidebook that brings the Consecrated seeker of Truth into the Presence of the Living Word. That the Bible and all such scriptural writings are sacred is true -- but the purpose of these sacred writings is not to teach man what to believe -- but rather, to instruct man on what he must do in order to bridge the three-dimensional barrier of this physical world, and learn directly from the One Teacher of Light. Thus, when I was in the Presence of the Light I realized that the original teachings of The Way was a series of spiritual rituals, disciplines and preparatory instructions that enabled the truly sincere disciple to develop their embryonic mind to the level where it could be nourished directly from the Light of the Father. And when Constantine and his (Christian) Church killed the genuine people of The Way in the fourth century -- altered the written word of the scriptures to make them support an institutionalized shadow church -- and converted the empire to the very Pagan religion of the emperor -- the world was plunged into a state of darkness from which it has yet to emerge from.
In truth, the Bible has absolutely nothing to do with history -- but rather, is a book about the life with respect to the past, present and ultimate personal reality of each and every individual person who reads it. That each of us is a great deal more than the image we see reflected in the mirror -- that each of us is the embryonic image of our own pre-existing soul and spiritual nature -- and that each of us is personally portrayed throughout every page of the scriptures -- is the reality that we must come to terms with in our search for the meaning and purpose of the life we are presently living.
book you are presently holding will be very different than anything you have
ever read in you life. Why?
What will make it different?
What will be presented throughout this book need not be believed --
because such terms as belief and faith are emblematic of a state of unknowing.
Because man has over the past two thousand years attempted to explain
and define the teachings of The Way in accordance with his own very limited
understanding and suppressed level of conscious awareness, both believers and
non-believers alike have been disenfranchised and alienated from the
perspective and necessary foundational vision they must possess in order to
find the answers to life for themselves.
The result is that to our own detriment we confuse the terms religion
the first chapter of Paul’s First Epistle to the Corinthians, the Apostle
conveys to the faithful flock that they have been given all knowledge and
truths in accordance with the philosophy (testimony) of Christ.
What Paul is stating is that he has laid the philosophical foundation
necessary for the community of believers to begin the process of spiritual
growth, and if they begin to live their daily lives in accordance with the
philosophy (testimony) of Christ that has been confirmed in them, that they
will know the truth for themselves.
How? Because having
become a fit vessel for their soul and spiritual natures to manifest, they
will begin to receive the Spiritual Gospel of Christ which will prepare them
to comprehend what Paul calls in the second chapter of his Epistle the
Mysteries of God. This
book, then, unlike other books you have read, is written with the express
purpose of restoring the connection between the first two chapters of Paul’s
Epistle in the life of the reader.
When the Master taught that a house divided cannot stand (Matt 12:25), he spoke of our own house and kingdom within us. Thus, the essence of the teachings of The Way is that each of us can know the Truth, because it exists within us -- and the faithful disciple is the one who abides by the Teachings of the Light, and manifests that Light throughout every aspect of their lives. Such a person need not be instructed out of a book -- nor taught by their fellow brothers and sisters -- but rather, the promise of the scriptures is that the One Teacher will imbue them with the Truth, and the Truth will make them Free. One of the great truths we fail to realize today with respect to the concept that the genuine disciple will intimately know and learn directly from the Father, is in fact the very foundational principle upon which the New Covenant has been Ordained: “This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest” (Heb 8:10-11 NIV). To even claim to believe the written word of the Bible, is to believe that man has the capacity to learn directly from the Source of all Truth.
While I was fortunate to have learned directly from the Master who walked the shores of Galilee as the Son of God in the life I lived as Jacob, it is the Absolute Destiny of each and every person reading this book to know all the Truths and Mysteries of Creation that can be known. In the same way that a child cannot halt the changes and development that causes him to become a physically mature adult, neither can we halt the Laws and Patters of the Divine Plan of Creation that controls our footsteps throughout every world and realm of existence in which we move and have our being. While we do possess free will in the form of the power to either delay or quicken our date with Destiny -- in the manner of the growing and developing child, it is impossible for us to circumvent or negate the inevitable.
In this respect, the Hand of God neither moves in strange or unknowable ways, as people of faith have proposed since the fourth century when the organized church as we know it today came into being. Every event in our life is not only for a purpose, but is the result of our own previous interaction with the Laws that control our path to the Destiny that we cannot avoid. All human suffering, misery, good fortune or even success that each one of us embraces as what we call the hand of fate intimately intertwines in our daily lives, can only be understood when we are able to perceive and understand our own past in relation to the present, in conjunction with the road we are traveling relative to our date with Destiny.
is man’s destiny to know the Truth, because each of us is the Offspring of
the Truth -- and we are all the children of the One God who is the Father of
All. You need not believe
me! You have the capacity
and ability to find out for yourself.
All you need to do is begin to live and manifest each morsel of
nourishing truth as it is given to you -- for the Law is that he who asks will
be given, with the other side of the coin being he who asks can never possess
any greater amount of Truth than they are willing to live and make manifest in
their everyday life.
I will demonstrate throughout this book is that Truth is revealed to us
one-step and revelation at a time.
In my own life when I was able to come into the Presence of the
Light, it was impressed upon me the importance of worshiping the Light through
Imitation. While this
may strike fear in the hearts of non-believers and culturized Jews and
Christians who view the lifestyle ordained in the scriptures as an extreme
infringement upon their freedom, it is not -- because at our essence, each of
us is a Child of the Light; and when we begin to live in accordance with that
Light, we begin to manifest the being that we truly are.
say you believe in Jesus! Then
if you believe, you must heed his words and imitate Christ throughout every
aspect of your life! Worship
Christ by living in strict accordance with New Covenant teachings.
Seek Christ out as your exclusive Teacher and Revealer of Truth.
Embrace the Biblically ordained lifestyle that Christ confirmed as the
fertile ground upon which the teachings of The Way was founded.
Be faithful to Christ in your fidelity to your husband or wife -- the
rearing of your children -- your occupation -- and in everything you think, do
and say. Do this, and you
will begin to genuinely be faithful to the Word, and you will learn the Truth
from the True Teacher.
Bible teaches that the physical body in which we presently dwell is the Temple
of God! Treat it, then, as
the Holy Oracle that it is! If
you ask me what was the very first thing I was taught when I was brought into
the Presence of the Light, it was the need to sanctify the body and mind in
order to make it a fit Temple and Abode for the Light to manifest.
You are what you eat -- and I was shown that the food and drink I
consumed greatly impacted my thoughts, desires and ability to overcome the
limitations of the body-mind. I
began to understand why a Nazirite who consecrated their lives to the Lord did
not cut their hair -- the hair being a type of nerve ending that connects the
field which surrounds the physical form of the body with the soul and spirit
of man. I came to
understand why holy men throughout the ages have always covered their head --
not only in reverence to the sacredness of the head, but also to better retain
and direct the vital life-force of the body inwardly.
I saw the importance of the Sabbath and other biblical days of
observance in their sequence of numbers and levels of consciousness.
I came to understand that all the many things that I had been taught
was of little significance by my well-meaning and sincere religious
instructors, possessed great meaning and significance in the life of those who
desire to walk in The Way. How
can you claim to be a sincere believer -- one who desires to imitate Christ --
when you live in accordance with the thinking and customs of the heathen of
this world? I learned that
each of the rituals of the Bible held a deeper meaning than what was apparent
to those who saw only the words of the scriptures.
I saw that while such things as prayer, meditation, praise and worship
held their place of importance, that it is the disciple who becomes a Living
Praise of the Lord throughout every aspect of their lives.
In its original first-century form, the religion of the New Covenant that was practiced by both Hebrews and the Gentile converts was a spiritual religion that had little in common with either the counterfeit traditions of the Jewish sects of the Sadducees and Pharisees, or the institutionalized church that came into existence in the fourth century. The first Hebrew-Christians placed such great importance on the acquisition of Knowledge -- experiential Knowledge derived from the disciple’s intimate connection with the Light -- because in the same way that man is born into this world through the negation of the opposite polarities of their parents with the merging of the mother’s egg and the father’s sperm into one embryo, man is born into the Kingdom through the exact same sequence of events -- i.e., the negation of the opposite polarities of mind by merging the paradoxes of life into a third spiritual reality that is greater and elevated above the sum of its elemental parts. This bringing the mind into a state of Oneness that transcends man’s divided and multidimensional spectrum of being, requires the Key of Knowledge to be applied to the Laws that control the twelve spheres of what the Bible calls the Tree of Life -- which Sacred Knowledge can only be taught and received by one who is in the totally of their life faithful to the teachings of The Way, and thus learns directly from the One True Teacher.
Where the original teachings of the New Covenant imbued the followers of the Lord with the Knowledge of The Way that one must live in order to come into the Presence of the Light, the religion of the institutionalized church taught people to adhere to the doctrines of the emperor -- one of which was that the believer who is faithful to the church will go to glory after they physically die. Thus, the foundational doctrines of the shadow church not only has very little in common with the Spiritual Church of The Way, but it is the very doctrines of the church that causes the spiritual death and failure of the people who call themselves Christian. Unless the believer evolves through the next stages of soul and spiritual birth that Jesus warns in necessary in order to enter the Kingdom of God, then they will be as seeds that never developed into a mature plant in the Father’s Heavenly Kingdom. In the teachings of the New Covenant there are only the two ways -- i.e., the few who walk in The Way and enter in through the Strait Gate (Matt 7:13-14), and there are the rest who walk the broad-way to their own destruction. If, at the end of your life you are presently living you have failed to experience the next stage of birth that Jesus states is absolutely necessary in order to enter into Life, then you will neither go to glory, nor will you dwell in the Kingdom of the Father.
Christians today believe they are saved by faith -- and while it is true that the Apostle Paul condemned the Judaizers who attempted to teach that it was necessary to observe and ritualize the Law of Moses in the manner of the Sadducees and Pharisees, all error and all spiritual disenfranchisement of Christians by the later shadow church have been directly related to their misunderstanding of Paul’s words. Contrary to the popular myths that were published by the shadow church of Constantine, I will demonstrate conclusively is that it was not the true Hebrew followers of Jesus who practiced such things as physical circumcision, the sacrifice of animals, or even the temple worship associated with the Sadducees and Pharisees. As the genuine people of the New Covenant, the Essene/Ebionites who were the true people of The Way were able to receive the Anointing (Christ/Messiah) of the Light, because they not only had true faith in the Son of God, but they put their faith into practice by observing the tenets of the Spiritual Law within themselves and their indwelling Temple.
good reason the Apostle Paul taught that man is not saved by the works of the
Law in the manner of the Sadducees and Pharisees -- but there is nothing in
Paul’s Epistles that would even suggest that the supposed followers of
Christ would be viewed as a faithful people when they live in accordance with
the culture and teachings of this world, as many people who call themselves
Christian do today. In
like manner, Paul calls the wisdom of this world foolishness -- and yet we
teach our children to live in accordance with a secular/Atheistic culture --
imbue them with worldly philosophy -- and train them up in the ways of the
culture and thinking of this world that Paul continually condemns -- and yet
we consider ourselves to be a faithful people.
is One and Absolute! Contrary
to the myth that is promoted by men of very limited vision, there is no
conflict between genuine religion and genuine science.
All conflict and opinion is borne out of error -- Truth can only be
possessed by those who are themselves possessed by the Truth.
While faith is the first steps in the beginning of The Way, as the
division of Heaven and Earth (spirit and flesh) is merged within the life of
the disciple in search of the Light, the gift of our Heavenly Father bestows
upon us the Pure Understanding of the Mysteries of God.
