Entering The Consecrated Temple

 

Entering The Consecrated Temple

Image may contain: 1 person, night

Manly P. Hall wrote with respect to the Temple:   “In ancient times many years of preparation were required before the neophyte was permitted to enter the temple of the Mysteries. In this way the shallow, the curious, the faint of heart, and those unable to withstand the temptations of life were automatically eliminated by their inability to meet the requirements for admission. The successful candidate who did pass between the pillars entered the temple, keenly realizing his sublime opportunity, his divine obligation, and the mystic privilege which he had earned for himself through years of special preparation.”

Entering the Temple was an allegorical portrayal of entering the Temple within you. In fact, the whole of the Old Testament is in reality the Transformation of the body-vessel into the Living Consecrated Temple that permitted the seeker to enter through the inner "narrow strait gate" and gain entrance to the Inner Kingdom. If our biblical translators were to translate the names properly, Jesus is the equivalent of Yeshua or Joshua -- and in the same way that Joshua was the reality and vibration of mind necessary to lead the Children of Israel into the Promised Land -- Joshua (Yeshua/Jesus) is representative of that reality of mind necessary to gain entrance into the Kingdom within (Luke 17:20-21). What is portrayed in the scriptures as animal sacrifice, is the transformation of man's lower animal nature into a perfect lamb that is necessary to build the Final Temple. Quoting from The Final Temple http://TheConsecratedLife.com#temple

Quotation From AskMoses.com Under the Heading of: What Is The Holy Temple?
The Final Temple: With the destruction of the Second Temple, G-d changed His mode of interaction with the universe. Until the destruction, the Temple was the window to G-d; spirituality had a physical home in Jerusalem. The Kohanim offered the daily sacrifices, the daily routines went uninterrupted, daily personal prayer was redundant. With the destruction, G-d destroyed the physical Temple and made it a spiritual place... We cannot find G-d in Jerusalem; we must find Him in us. With the destruction, G-d destroyed the physical Temple and made it a spiritual place. He took that window and placed it within us. Instead of traveling to Jerusalem, G-d wanted us to find Him in our inner Jerusalem. Now, our bodies are our Temples, our souls are our windows, our minds are our Kohanim and our animal instincts are our sacrifices. We cannot offer physical sacrifices three times a day, but we can pray three times a day. We cannot attend Temple services three times a day, but we can tap into our souls three times a day. We cannot atone for our shortcomings by sacrificing animals, but we can sacrifice our inner animals—our hormones, our lusts, our desires, our beastly compulsions. We cannot find G-d in Jerusalem; we must find Him in us. This was G-d’s Master Plan. By exchanging a sweeping, dramatic outdoor concert of public spirituality for an internal, personal, private experience, G-d was bringing Himself even closer to humanity, laying the groundwork for the Third and final Temple—an age that will synthesize G-d’s presence inside our hearts and minds and in the world around us in a totally new reality: the Era of Moshiach.

The above words taken directly from AskMoses.com, represents one of the most profound spiritual insights that must be acknowledged by the leaders of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. That carnal Jews did not understand the allegorical nature of their scriptures -- and in not understanding the spiritual meaning of the scriptures, they built a shadow temple in the outer world where they sacrificed innocent animals is why Jesus portrayed the leaders of the Jews as the "devil's spawn" (see The Devil's Spawn http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com ). And that the carnal Jews observed the Law outward in ritual and human tradition, is one of the primary reasons why the historical Yeshua opposed the religious authorities of his day. And it is this inner reality of a Holy of Holies where one's own carnal nature must be sacrificed, is openly acknowledgement in the fulfillment of the inauguration of the New Covenant: "For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them" (Heb 8:10-11). Yet, the Jews have been inhibited from acknowledging this fact that they can only allude to in the above statement which is confirmed in the Epistle to the Hebrews, because a great number of the Gentile converts were too heathen and pagan to comprehend the Gospel teachings of TheWay, and the Church of Constantine embraced the idolatry of declaring Jesus to be God Incarnate -- thereby worshiping their elder spiritual brother, instead of imitating his example and building their own Consecrated Temple.

THE SHORTCOMING OF EASTERN TEACHINGS


 THE SHORTCOMING OF EASTERN TEACHINGS

 

What is portrayed in the Meme is one of the greatest differences between Eastern and Western-Original Gospel teachings on the relationship of the body to the Soul.  And in not understanding the Mind as patterned in the teachings of Jesus on the Tree of Life (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ), the Eastern teachings are generally unable to bring about the necessary Wholeness to bring about the next subsequent stage of birth (see Wholeness of Mind & Being http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#wholeness ).  The Eastern Religions fail to understand that the Lower Earthly Nature of man is the Feminine Opposite Polarity to the Upper Spiritual Nature -- which means that the two opposite polarities of the Trinitarian Divine Pattern must be reunited in the Center with Wholeness restored (see The Light Of The Trinity As The Divine Pattern Of Creation https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2020/11/the-trinity-as-divine-pattern-of.html ).   

Where Eastern teachings deal primarily with the upper spiritual nature through meditation and various forms of yoga, the Essene Ebionite Nazirene Scriptures in their original un-corrupted form, deal with the development and transformation of the lower earthly nature as explored in the above link to the teachings of Jesus on the Tree of Life, and the Restoral of Wholeness.  And that the Soul of Man has an actual lower animal nature that returns back to him -- life after life after life -- where it must be eventually transformed in preparation to bring about the necessary Wholeness and subsequent birth, is fully explored at the link entitled The Formation Of Our Lower Earthly Animal Consciousness http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#LowerEarthlyAnimalConsciousness .

During the Cycles of Life when the Lower Nature is released from the body in what can rightly be portrayed as Soul-Breath And The Common Ground Of The Fourth Kingdom http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#TheCommonGround , man's lower animal nature is released into the earth to incarnate in accord with its level of development.  And with conception when the Soul projects another embryonic image at conception, the consciousness of the lower animal nature of that Soul reforms the physical body in accord with the level of transformation brought about by that Soul's previous lives.  And this is why Jesus taught that many people were actually beasts that walk in the form of man (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature  http://SoulSelf.org#AnimalNature ). Which means that each person's lower nature is reformed at conception and birth -- and the level of spiritual attainment of each Soul is manifest into the life of the person in accord with the level of transformative development that each Soul has attained in its previous lives.  Which gives important meaning to the statement: "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7).  Or, as in the statement of the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).    

What this means is that the ability of each person to comprehend higher Soul and Spiritual Realities is determined by the transformative development of the physical body which the person incarnates into -- as stated by Origen in the Church's official reply to the Pagan Philosopher Celsus where Origen explained in Contra Celsum with respect to what can be portrayed as a person's Spiritual DNA that the Soul inherits from life to life: "Is it not rational that souls should be introduced into bodies, in accordance with their merits and previous deeds, and that those who have used their bodies in doing the utmost possible good should have the right to bodies endowed with qualities superior to the bodies of others?  With the key reality portrayed in the words: "...those who have used their bodies in doing the utmost possible good should have the right to bodies endowed with qualities superior to the bodies of others".  Which means that those Souls who have evolved and transformed their lower earthly/animal nature, inherit a physical body that is more refined, and is able to comprehend man's higher Soul and Spiritual Reality.  While those who have neglected the development of their lower animal nature are inhibited by their untransformed Spiritual DNA that they inherited.  Quoting from Spiritual DNA And The Allotment Of Talents To The Invited Guests http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SpiritualDNA : "And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability" (Matt 25:15).   The key concept here is that each person was not only entrusted with a different amount, but that each person was entrusted with an amount "...each according to his own ability."   When rightly understood within the construct of the original Gospel teachings prior to being corrupted by the Church, each person is given their lot in life in accordance with this predetermined criteria of what each soul has accomplished in their own past.  Further, what Jesus taught was that what the spiritually poor complacent people possessed because they "buried" their talent in the earth, would even be taken away and be given to those who had an abundance: “Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away” (Matt 25:28-29).   Thus, on the surface, Jesus appears to be a Robin Hood in reverse -- take from the poor, and give to the rich.

In Contra Celsum, Origen explains respecting the Divine Order of Creation as set forth in Paul’s Epistle to the Romans (see The Early Church On Predestination http://ChristianReincarnation.org#predestination ) and goes on to explain: “For God must be believed to do and order all things and at all times according to His judgment. For the words which the apostle uses when he says, ‘In a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and of earth, and some to honor and some to dishonor;' and those which he adds, saying, 'If a man purge himself, he will be a vessel unto honor, sanctified and meet for the Master's use, unto every good work,' undoubtedly point out this, that he who shall purge himself when he is in this life, will be prepared for every good work in that which is to come; while he who does not purge himself will be, according to the amount of his impurity, a vessel unto dishonor, i.e., unworthy. It is therefore possible to understand that there have been also formerly rational vessels, whether purged or not, i.e., which either purged themselves or did not do so, and that consequently every vessel, according to the measure of its purity or impurity, received a place, or region, or condition by birth, or an office to discharge, in this world..."  How is the "condition by birth" in accord with each person's own accomplishments over the course of their Soul's previous lives?  Because when you incarnated into this world, your own Soul's lower earthly/animal nature reformed the consciousness of your physical body -- thereby manifesting your own Soul's Spiritual DNA.  And the fact that Eastern Teachings generally ignore this reality, is why they teach that you are not the body -- which is only a vessel that you inherit like a new car in each life. 

The Eastern religious teachings which lack the necessary knowledge of the soul that has developed their lower earthly/animal nature, attempts to portray man's journey on earth from the perspective of escaping the Wheel of Reincarnation. They fail to understand that each personality which the Soul incarnates as, only lives One Lifetime (see The Foundation Of The Soul And The Threefold Self http://GospelOfThomas.Nazirene.org#84 ) -- and that because Time is a dimension of Soul-Mind, all the personalities the Soul has incarnated as, continues to dwell in the Higher Reality of what can be portrayed as the Soul Mind-Matrix.  And thus, because the Eastern teachings are focused on withdrawing and escaping this sub-realm, instead of fully embracing it in a positive manner, they fail to develop the necessary Wholeness that the core Gospel teachings are designed to bring about -- i.e., "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).     In their failure to understand that the Soul or our True-Self is a twelve-dimensional Being of Light that cannot incarnate directly into this three-dimensional sub-realm (see http://SoulSelf.org ) -- and that the projected image in each lifetime is embryonic, and must be evolved through the interaction of male and female as explored in Jesus' teachings on the Tree of Life (see The Process Of Birth Within The Tree Of Life http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#foundation ) -- and that through the experiences in this life that evolves the Light of the Soul (see The Evolving Soul http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#TheEvolvingSoul ) -- the person who achieves Wholeness and the subsequent stages of birth (see The Four Stages Of Birth http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#FourStagesOfBirth ) -- which through Wholeness, has the ability to grow the Light of the Soul and bring about Perfection as Jesus taught.

The Trinity As The Divine Pattern Of Creation

 

 The Trinity As The Divine Pattern Of Creation


 

The Eternal Light of Spirit is the direct balance of the Male and Female Polarities of Father Mother God. The Light itself is portrayed as the Son of God -- or, more appropriately the Mind or Logos/Word of God. And this is the Reality of the Trinity that is holographically replicated into every aspect of Creation. Which means that there is nothing but Mind and Consciousness -- and all of Creation exists within the Mind of God -- i.e., “‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’” (Acts 17:28).. When the Gospel of Thomas saying 22 states: "Jesus said to them, When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom."
Not only is all growth and development of mind and spirit brought through the interaction of the Male and Female Polarities that are the seat of Consciousness and direct expressions of the Divine Trinity, but so too are the next subsequent states of birth that enables a person and a soul to manifest on a Higher Plane of Consciousness and Being. And the process of achieving the subsequent stages of birth are explored in the esoteric teachings of Jesus on the Tree of Life (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ). Did Jesus have a body of esoteric teachings that could only be revealed to a select few? “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand” (Mark 4:11-12).

An important truth is contained in the Epistle of Peter to James where it is stated: "Hear me, brethren and fellow-servants. If we should give the books to all indiscriminately, and they should be corrupted by any daring men, or be perverted by interpretations, as you have heard that some have already done, it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error. Wherefore it is better that they should be with us, and that we should communicate them with all the fore-mentioned care to those who wish to live piously, and to save others." And this is why the most important Gospels were never given into the hands of the Gentiles -- i.e., Thus, Peter writes to James: "Knowing, my brother, your eager desire after that which is for the advantage of us all, I beg and beseech you not to communicate to any one of the Gentiles the books of my preachings which I sent to you, nor to any one of our own tribe before trial; but if any one has been proved and found worthy, then to commit them to him, after the manner in which Moses delivered his books to the Seventy who succeeded to his chair. Wherefore also the fruit of that caution appears even till now. For his countrymen keep the same rule of monarchy and polity everywhere, being unable in any way to think otherwise, or to be led out of the way of the much-indicating Scriptures. For, according to the rule delivered to them, they endeavor to correct the discordances of the Scriptures, if any one, haply not knowing the traditions, is confounded at the various utterances of the prophets. Wherefore they charge no one to teach, unless he has first learned how the Scriptures must be used. And thus they have amongst them one God, one law, one hope." (see Epistle Of Peter And James)

The Gentiles not only severely corrupted the copies of the scriptures that they were given -- removing and corrupting the "discordances" which were important catalysts used in the development of the inward-looking aspects of mind -- but more importantly what Peter states is true with respect to their ignorance of the "traditions" within which the whole framework of the scriptures are composed. And like the Sadducees and Pharisees before them who Yeshua/Jesus condemned for throwing away the Key of Knowledge, they did not know the manner in which "...the Scriptures must be used" -- and this remains true even in our present day. By reading and interpreting the Gospels as historical accounts in the manner of the Jews -- instead of using them for their intended purpose as the Key of Knowledge (see The Purpose Of The Scriptures http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com#PurposeOfTheScriptures ) -- the body of modern Christian believer are unable to enter into the "narrow strait gate" -- thereby fulfilling the very purpose of the Gospels to enable the lost prodigal sons and daughters to return to the Kingdom by entering through the Edenic Gate of the Kingdom -- the Church itself is led by blind guides who Jesus portrayed as the "spawn of the devil" (see The Devil's Spawn http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com ). Thus, the statement: "'BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN'" (Mark 7:7 NAS). And because they are dull of hearing and understanding, they cannot be helped by the Lord who has brought about the Restoration of the Original Gospel Teachings that the Church corrupted (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ). And thus, it can again be stated "If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin" (John 15:22). Saying further: "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked" (Luke 12:48) .
What this means is that those who call themselves Christians, will he held more accountable than those who are not Christians. They will be held more accountable for complacency with respect to seeking Higher Truth. And when proof of corruption has been presented to them, they will be held accountable for the error and corruption they embrace and promote, than the non-believer. With the corruption of the Gospels by the Church, seekers were confronted with great difficulty in their search for Higher Spiritual Truth. If the Gospel Teachings are the vehicle that opens the door to the Kingdom -- and the Kingdom is within us -- then the Church removed the wheels from the vehicle that transports the seeker into Life (see The Death Of The Gospels http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#DeathOfTheGospel ). To resolve this obstacle that the corruption of the Church placed in the path of sincere followers of Jesus, my Soul who in my previous life in the first Century authored the Core Original Gospel, re-entered this world to restore the crucial suppressed teachings that were suppressed by the emperors who ruled over the Church of Rome.

Enter In At The Narrow Gate To The Kingdom

 

Quoting from Entering Eden's Gate Within http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#EnteringThroughEdensGate When Jesus taught his disciples to "Enter through the narrow gate", before you can enter the Gate of Eden and return to the Kingdom, you must first know where to look and how to find it. The Jews and the Pharisees, like the modern Christians, were looking for the Kingdom, and they were seduced by the Devil to look outwardly for it to come upon the Earth. Therefore, if you are looking and seeking in the wrong direction, then you will be among those who fail to find Eden's Gate -- i.e., "...But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14). Which of course can also be stated in the words: "You have kept the key that opens the door to the house of knowledge; you yourselves will not go in, and you stop those who are trying to go in!” (Luke 11:52 TEV). In the Epistle of Peter to James it is warned that if the esoteric body of knowledge of how the Gospels must be used as the Key of Knowledge is thrown away or lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error" -- and the prediction by the Apostle Peter has been confirmed as true. As blind guides that led the people in the wrong direction -- looking for the Kingdom to come outwardly instead of within the body and mind of the believer the modern clergy and Church authorities interpret the scriptures in the same exact manner as the Pharisees, which has caused the modern believer to remain banished in this, the Far Country. Where the plight of mankind is portrayed in the statement: "Therefore the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken" (Gen 3:23), the Force and Barrier that causes man to wander in this, the "Outer Darkness" of what is portrayed as the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son, inhibits mankind from returning to his True Home and Source of Being in the Edenic Kingdom of their Heavenly Father.

In the plight of mankind in this, the Far Country, the Natural Laws of Creation place a barrier between this world and the Kingdom that Jesus taught is within us, as declared in the statement: "So He drove out the man and stationed cherubim to the east of the Garden of Eden, with a whirling sword of flame to guard the way to the tree of life" (Gen 3:24). BUT, when the Gospels are used as the Key of Knowledge as designed by the Ebionite Nazirene authors, mankind as the lost prodigal sons and daughters can safely pass through the inner "narrow strait gate" that enables the seeker safe passage by the "cherubim" who guard the Tree of Life with their "whirling sword of flame", and allow entrance to the Edenic Kingdom within. Jesus declared to his followers: "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NIV). Because the Church threw away the Key of Knowledge, and adopted pagan dogmatic doctrines of belief, the Christian world sits idly complacent on the side of the "broad-way ...that leads to destruction." When Jesus commanded those who would be his followers: “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it” (Matt 10:38-39) -- it will remain virtually impossible for you to enter through the "narrow strait gate" within you, without using the Gospels as the Key of Knowledge that enables you to pass by the "cherubim" who guard the Tree of Life with their "whirling sword of flame" -- thereby escaping the "outer darkness" of this, the Far Country -- and gain entrance to the Edenic Kingdom within you (see The Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ). "How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering" (Luke 11:52). Thus, in understanding these words spoken to the Pharisees, the questions must be asked: How did the Pharisees and Jewish authorities "...hide the key to knowledge from the people"? Why did Jesus condemn the leaders of the Jews for failing to enter the Kingdom themselves? -- i.e., "...You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves"! And how did the religious leaders of the Jews "...prevent others from entering?" In further clarification, the TEV version of the this verse states: “How terrible for you teachers of the Law! You have kept the key that opens the door to the house of knowledge; you yourselves will not go in, and you stop those who are trying to go in!” (Luke 11:52 TEV). What the above means is that if you fail to utilize the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge -- turning them within your own mind in order to open the "narrow strait gate" within you -- thereby enabling you to acquire the Power and Ability to safely pass by the "cherubim" who guard the Tree of Life with what is allegorically portrayed as their "whirling sword of flame", then you are not a follower of Jesus and the New Covenant.

One of the core teachings that were removed and suppressed by the Church of Rome, was the teaching on the pre-existent Soul that evolves to Wholeness and Perfection over the course of many lives (see The Foundation Of The Soul And The Threefold Self http://GospelOfThomas.Nazirene.org#84 ).  The author and visionary Philip K. Dick was able to recall his Soul's previous life in the first century where he lived as an original follower of Jesus. He also wrote with respect to the original disciples of Jesus that: "Christ ...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, where other mystery religions only bring about amnesis: knowledge of it at the 'other time' in 'the other realm,' not here. He causes it to come here, and is the living agency to the Sole Good God (i.e. the Logos)." This is true -- and that the original Gospel message was to develop the mind through the transformative process of expansion and deepening of consciousness, and then enable the disciple of TheWay to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom, is easily demonstrated in the above quotations on the proper use of the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge. The objective of Mystery religions is to acquire what Philip K. Dick portrays above at the ability to bring about amnesis, which can be defined as observing through meditation in the manner of the traditional monk. BUT, as Philip K. Dick confirms what is presented in the Gospel teachings, Jesus taught his followers how to actually gain entrance into the Kingdom -- and through the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) of the Mind, enabling his disciples to be taught directly from the One and Only Teacher that Jesus instructed his followers to seek out and learn from (see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ). Few modern believers even understand the foundation of The New Covenant -- i.e., "For this is the covenant that I will make ...says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them" (Heb 8:10-11). Yet, the Christian world has rejected the very foundation of the New Covenant by virtue of countless teachers, Bible Commentaries, a mass of Bible interpretations and the adoption of man-made dogma that inhibits the believer's mental development and spiritual advancement. Thus, the reality of the words of Isaiah have enveloped the modern faith-based believers in the quagmire of their own self-imposed spiritual shackles: "For they that lead this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed" (Isa 9:6). And when rightly understood, the resounding truth is that the modern believers have chosen tradition and man-made dogma over the Knowledge of the Original Teachings associated with the New Covenant -- i.e., "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee..." (Hos 4:6). In the Epistle of Peter to James it is warned that if the esoteric body of knowledge of how the Gospels must be used as the Key of Knowledge is thrown away or lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error" -- and the prediction by the Apostle Peter has been confirmed as true. As blind guides that led the people in the wrong direction -- looking for the Kingdom to come outwardly instead of within the body and mind of the believer -- the Gospel account of Jesus portrayed the Pharisees as the "spawn of the devil" -- i.e, "Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word" As to why the Jews could not understand spiritual teachings and concepts, Jesus explained: "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, refusing to uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, because he is a liar and the father of lies" (John 8:43-44). That the modern clergy and Church authorities interpret the scriptures in the same exact manner as the Pharisees, has caused the modern believer to remain banished in this, the Far Country. Which provokes the question: What makes the theological and spiritual positions of what is portrayed as the Ebionites heresy by the Church? Because they learned and were taught by Jesus how to apply the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge and gain entrance to the Inner Kingdom -- how to fulfill the Laws that guard the Tree of Life in the manner of a "whirling sword of flame" -- the Ebionites were condemned as heretics. Why? Because the Ebionites confirmed the statement in the Gospels of the fate of those who throw away the Key of Knowledge -- i.e., "you do not understand what I say? ...because you cannot bear to hear my word". Why? Because those who reject and condemn the knowledge of the proper use of the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge, remain lost and incapable of hearing and understanding the Sacred Body of Knowledge that could only be revealed to those who made themselves into the "good ground" that is portrayed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed (see http://SowerAndTheSeed.Ebionite.com ) -- “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand” (Mark 4:11-12). Why did Jesus portray some people as "...seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand”? What Jesus said was that, unless certain transformative requirements are fulfilled by a person, they will see, but remain blind and unable to understand with any depth of what they are seeing. And this is verified by Paul when he stated to the Corinthians who he had himself taught what he portrayed as the (quasi-historical) "traditions" of the Gospel that, "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3). Paul was stating that it was not a matter of teaching or instruction -- but rather, of the "natural" mind of man evolving beyond man's organic limitations, that would raise them up to a level of higher spiritual maturity. And this is why the Church Father Origen who was portrayed as the greatest teacher second only to the Apostles stated of the physical resurrection that it was “preached in the Churches… for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief” (see Contra Celsum). Why? Because of their untransformed carnal condition of mind and being, this allegorical portrayal of the Final Stage of Birth was all that the faith-based believers were capable of comprehending. Everything you have heard or been told about the beliefs of those who Jesus personally taught is based upon partisan ignorance of the source. In view of the fact that all the modern knowledge about the Ebionites who walked with Jesus daily and authored the Original Gospels, has been drawn from their opponents and detractors who were themselves blind guides who threw away the Key of Knowledge.  You have never heard the explanation from the Ebionites as to their use and positions on the scriptures, and why they held and embraced the spiritual positions that they did.

While the Dead Sea Scrolls have revealed that the Essenes were the foundation of the New Covenant Gospel teachings, the Ebionite Nazirenes came into existence as a direct result of the influence and teachings of Jesus. And even more important is the fact that the opponents of the Ebionites, was based upon Greek and Roman detractors. Which not only confirms the fact that those of whom it was stated that, while "...seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand”, were the ones who condemned the Ebionties as gnostic heretics. And to their own spiritual defeat, the modern Christian has embraced their blind dogmatic ramblings, hook, line and sinker. The word Ebionite means the "poor ones", which portrays a people who are separate and set aside from the thinking and lifestyle of this world. Therefore, they are the "set apart" ones who are the "poor" to the ways and thinking of this world. Quoting the Gospel of the Nazirenes: "Blessed in spirit are the poor, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven". Which is the basis of the requirement to be "in the world and not of it" -- i.e., if a seeker/disciple has gained entrance through the "narrow strait gate" -- and has fulfilled Laws which are allegorically personified as the "cherubim" who guard the Tree of Life with their "whirling sword of flame", and allow entrance to the Edenic Kingdom within -- then it can easily be said of these faithful followers of Jesus that the are "in the world and not of it". "Then I heard another voice from heaven say: 'Come out of her, my people,' so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues" (Rev 18:4). With respect to the question as to how "set apart" were the original Ebionite followers and disciples of Jesus? The historian Edward Gibbon writes that the original Ebionite Nazirene followers of Jesus were “…rejected from one religion as apostates, and from the other as heretics” (Gibbon: Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, v.1, p.416). Being rejected by both Jews and Christians alike, the fate of the original followers of Jesus who walked and talked with him daily during his earthly ministry, can be summed up in the words of Jesus that: "They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God" (John 16:2). Thus, neither Judaism or modern Christianity has anything in common with the original teachings of Jesus.

Regardless of the fact that it was the Ebionite Nazirenes who walked and talked daily with the man Jesus during his earthly ministry, the congregation of modern faith-based believers have been denied access to the witness of the Ebionites. From the perspective of the Roman Church, the Ebionites who were the only people who actually engaged in important conversations with the man Jesus, were "...apostates, and ...heretics” who totally rejected the wisdom and doctrines embraced by those secular leaders of the very worldly Church of Pagan Rome. Which raises the question: How could the doctrines of a Church that was totally immersed in the man-made pagan thinking of this world, even begin to understand the higher spiritual concepts and realities of a community of seekers who were not only totally "set apart" from the thinking of this world, but whose minds were opened and Anointed by the Holy Spirit? When Prof. John Allegro who was quoted as saying that what was revealed in the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls is a great amount of overwhelming evidence that “...may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church. This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers. The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine” (August 1966 issue of Harpers Magazine), he was warning the faith-based believers that the doctrines of Pagan Rome which are presently the foundation of the Church and modern Christianity, have virtually nothing in common with the Original Gospel teachings of the man Jesus and the Essene Ebionite Source of these teachings. And in confirmation of the foregoing statement of Prof. Allegro, it was confirmed by A. Powell Davies that: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls). Yet, because neither the faith-based believers or the modern theologians possessed any understanding of the Ebionite Nazirenes who were hunted down by the Gentile Church and silenced, the man-made doctrines of the Church are based upon the worship of the sun-god Mithra. Why is it stated in the scriptures that a sincere seeker of Truth had to be "set apart" -- i.e., a "poor one" (Ebionite) -- who is totally detached from the thinking and lifestyle of this world? Why are those attached to the thinking of this world portrayed as: "For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it". Why are those who throw away the Key of Knowledge portrayed as blind guides who are the "spawn of the devil"? And why is the Sacred Knowledge of Jesus as taught to his Ebionite followers and disciples of how the scriptures must be used as the Key of Knowledge, condemned as "gnostic heretics"? One of the primary plagues noted in the quotation drawn from the Revelation -- i.e., "...so that you will not receive any of her plagues" -- is the plague of abject spiritual ignorance -- which is a reality that the Church has brought upon itself. The true followers of Jesus must turn away from the ways and thinking of this world as stated: "Therefore, Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you" (2 Cor 6:17). Why is it important for the follower of Jesus and the New Covenant to "...be separate, [AND] ...Touch no unclean thing"? Because the core of the New Covenant teachings was to prepare the mind of the believer to be taught directly by the One Teacher as stated: "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God'" (John 6:45 see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ). And in confirmation of this fact, the Apostle Peter who is quoted in the Homilies of his disciple Clement where he warns the followers of the Gospel to reject all human interpretations of the scriptures -- i.e., "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without". Which means that every Christian sect that is based upon doctrines that rely upon a human interpretation of the scriptures, is leading the congregation of believers in the wrong direction.

Why would the Apostle Peter reject a human interpretation of the scriptures? Because the scriptures are not designed to teach you -- but to open your mind to an enlightened higher understanding by employing embedded catalysts that have the ability to connect the person you are in this world with your own Higher Mind and enable you to begin to be taught directly by the Indwelling Logos/Son of God. Wherein the answer to the equation of achieving an enlightened perceptive-understanding is found in the statement in the Gospel of Luke with respect to the opening of the mind of the disciples in order to enable them to understand the true spiritual meaning of the written text of the scriptures: "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45). Unless the believers spiritual eyes and understanding is opened and enlightened, they will remain unable to comprehend the higher reality of the Soul and the Kingdom of God. This is is because a higher enlightened understanding can only be accomplished by opening the "eyes of the heart" -- often referenced in the words: "eyes to see" -- as seen in the reality of mankind portrayed in the Gospel: "For this people’s heart has grown callous; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn, and I would heal them’" (Matt 13:15). Therefore, unless the believer has set themselves apart from the spiritually disenfranchised thinking and mindset of this world, they will remain unable to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospels. And in verification of this human reality, the second century Christian Bishop Valentinius quoted Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians when he made reference to Gnosis Kardias -- or, the enlightened eyes of the heart -- i.e., "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints" (Eph 1:18). And that Paul wanted -- but could not -- speak about the Mystery and Spiritual meaning of the Gospel that remains beyond organic understanding to the Ephesians -- and could not because of their inherent human blindness that has victimized them since birth -- is the reason he portrayed himself as an ambassador in bonds: "And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak" (see Eph 6:19-20). One may ask: Isn't the scriptures composed in order to teach the person what they need to know? Contrary to the position of modern believers and biblical scholars alike, the answer is NO !!! The scriptures are not historical accounts -- but rather, the scriptures are accounts of the mind that employ allegorical catalysts designed to develop the innate attributes of the believers mind that enables them to begin to tap into the indwelling True Prophet (a.k.a. Logos/Son of God). Quoting from The Cosmology Of The Gospels http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com : When rightly understood, the Gospels are not historical accounts -- but rather, possess embedded allegorical catalysts that use the equation of the symbolism to bring about the transformational mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening that evolves the mind to levels of Wholeness and Completion. In order for the equation of development to properly function, the embedded symbols and catalysts must be presented in a useable form that can be embraced in the daily lives of the "babes in Christ" that Paul warns are incomprehensible to man's organic embryonic consciousness. Therefore, the Gospels were intentionally created with an historical facade that could be intimately embraced by individuals and groups of serious seekers. Without the historical facade of the literal text of the scriptures that Paul portrays as "Jewish folktales" (Titus 1:14), the crucial equation of development could not be put into place where the symbols and catalysts were able to properly function in the development of the mind of the seeker. What this means is that the truth is not in the literal allegorical symbolism of the text of the scriptures -- which symbolism is designed to develop and connect the person we are in this world with our Higher Inner Self -- and ultimately, the indwelling Logos/Son of God that is the One Teacher that the Gospels command to seek out (see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ). In understanding this biblical reality, the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen portrayed the literal text of the scriptures as basically "worthless" -- i.e., “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics). Further explaining in De Principiis that: “Where the word found that things done according to the history could be adapted to these mystical senses, he made use of them concealing from the multitude the deeper meaning; but where in the narrative of the development of super-sensual things, there did not follow the performance of those certain events which were already indicated by the mystical meaning, the scripture interwove in the history the account of some event that did not take place, sometimes what could not have happened; sometimes what could but did not.” And that the spiritual meaning is not found in the literal text, is why Paul portrayed the scriptures as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).

Paul - Apostle or Apostate

 (quoted from Was Paul An Apostle Of Apostate http://Ebionite.com/Paul.htm

The Spiritual Enigma Of Paul: Why did the Apostle Peter and the other disciples of Jesus reject Paul?   Of the Ebionites it was noted by the early Church writer Irenaeus: "Those who are called Ebionites agree that the world was made by God... they use the Gospel of Matthew only, and repudiate the Apostle Paul, maintaining that he was an apostate from the Law."  But exactly what does this mean?  While it is true that the Ebionite Nazirene Disciples of Jesus condemned Paul, in order to even begin to understand why, one must first begin to understand the original spiritual essence of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.   And in view of the fact that the modern Christian world knows virtually nothing about the original spiritual objective and purpose of the Gospel teachings which have been Restored at http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com , it remains impossible for the modern believer to even begin to understand why the disciples of Jesus condemned and rejected the man known as Paul.

To begin to understand why the Ebionites condemned Paul as an apostate to the Law of God, you must first understand that his Epistles were not only corrupted (see Orthodox Corruption Of The Scriptures), but numerous writings attributed to Paul were authored by anti-Original Gospel Gentiles who were members of the Greek Mystery religion Mithraism.   The Gospel teachings were Tranformative, and were created in order to be a Universal path of all religions when used as the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ).   While the original Gospels were written by Essene/Ebionites in the Language of the Soul (see The Original Spiritual Language Of The Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#OriginalLanguage ), when the Gospels are used as the Key of Knowledge and turned within the person's own mind (see The Application Of The Scriptures As The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ), the Gospels are just as relevant to the inner core of Mithraic-Initiates, as they are to Hinduism, Buddhist and all other religions.  Not because they represent an historical portrayal of the man Jesus -- but rather, because the Gospels when rightly understood, present a blueprint of the Mind that the seeker needs to understand to achieve Wholeness -- enabling the seeker to enter through the inner "narrow strait gate" and achieve entrance into the Inner Kingdom.  But what this also means is that the people, places and events portrayed in the scriptures is not historical -- but rather, allegorical events of the mind that are presented within the context of an historical facade in order to make them appear applicable to the common faith-based believers.  And what this means is that the person portrayed as Paul in the Book of Acts was not an actual historical person -- but rather, was representative of an allegorical symbol of transformation.  

The Epistles attributed to Paul are all different, because they are authored by different people -- all of whom were Mithraic Initiates who portayed themselves as Christian, which was a name used by Mithraic Initiates prior to the advent of Jesus.  Which means that the modern Christians is practicing Mithraism, and using a corrupted version of the Gospels to support their faith.  In the book Christ or Paul?, the Rev. V.A. Holmes-Gore wrote: "Let the reader contrast the true Christian standard with that of Paul and he will see the terrible betrayal of all that the Master taught. For the surest way to betray a great Teacher is to misrepresent his message. That is what Paul and his followers did, and because the Church has followed Paul in his error it has failed lamentably to redeem the world. ...The teachings given by the blessed Master Christ, which the disciples John and Peter and James, the brother of the Master, tried in vain to defend and preserve intact were as utterly opposed to the Pauline Gospel as the light is opposed to the darkness."    If the modern Christian world has embraced a theology that is opposed to the original teachings of Jesus, then every person who claims to be a Christian must seriously pose the question: Is the dogma of the modern Church valid?   And what are the spiritual ramifications? 

In order to achieve their objective of the transformation of the Mind by bringing about Wholeness, scriptures are written with inconsistencies intentionally inserted into the literal text, in order to force the reader to stop, and contemplate the inner spiritual message.  In many instances, a conflicting account is purposely entered into the scriptures: Acts 9:7 reads: “And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man”.   Yet, in Acts 22:9 the narrative reads: “And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that spake to me”.   It means absolutely nothing for the modern reader to believe that Saul was converted on the road to Damascus -- there is no spiritual edification or uplifting when we relate this knowledge to an historical event at the beginning of our Common Era.   But what is conveyed spiritually is of great value to the disciple in search of the Inner Light -- and must bring about a change of mind in his quest to open the door to the Kingdom.   Thus the disciple begins to see his own transformation from the death of Stephen as spirit became clothed with flesh, to Saul the Jew who the Gospels portray as the "spawn of the devil" (see The Devil's Spawn http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com ) -- to Paul the little one (see Turn About And Become As a Child http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#TurnAbout ), whose blindness was healed by Ananias, the gift from God (see The Three Causes Of Human Blindness http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#TheThreeCausesOfHumanBlindness ).   And when it is understood that all of organic man are born blind -- and must themselves "turn about" and become a "little one" as the Gospel account of Jesus taught, then while quasi-historical account is meaningless to the modern Christian, the spiritual meaning is of great importance not only to Christians, but to all of mankind in search of higher spiritual truth. 

The objective of the INNER CORE of all religions, is to tap into the Inner Light of the Logos (Mind of God) and fulfill the objective to be taught by God -- i.e., "It is written in the Prophets: 'They will all be taught by God.' Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me" (John 6:45 NIV).  What made the Gospel teachings applicable to all of mankind and all religions, was that Jesus taught the seeker/disciple how to actually enter the Inner Kingdom.  And this has been portrayed in the words of the author and visionary Philip K. Dick whose Soul had lived as a first century original follow of Jesus that:  "Christ ...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, where other mystery religions only bring about amnesis: knowledge of it at the 'other time' in 'the other realm,' not here.  He causes it to come here, and is the living agency to the Sole Good God (i.e. the Logos)."   Where "amnesis" portrays the ability to tap into the inner source of knowledge, the disciples of Jesus were able to actually enter the Inner Kingdom.  Which made the Gospel teachings equally relevant to all religions world-wide.

Because the vast majority of Gentiles did not understand the proper use of the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge (see http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ), and they attempted to read the Gospels as if they were historical accounts, the Mithraic Initiates viewed themselves as parallel accounts of Paul and authored many epistles and writings under the name of Paul.    Those Mithraic Initiates who wrote under the pseudonym of Paul, had no interest in the historical man Jesus as seen in the statement -- i.e., “Therefore from now on we recognize no man according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according o the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer” (2 Cor 5:16).   This Spiritual Messiah/Christ, over the historical Messiah/Christ in the flesh, was what biblical scholar Rudolf Bultmann was speaking of when he concluded that the “…Christian faith is, and should be, comparatively uninterested in the historical Jesus and centered instead on the transcendent Christ” (Encyclopedia Britannica, 1998 electronic edition).   But this higher spiritual meaning of the Gospel accounts could not be understood by the pagan Mithraic sun-worshipers who believed that Jesus was the latest incarnation of the Mithraic sun-god. 

It is easily proven that the whole of the New Testament underwent a wholesale corruption in order to make it support the pagan element of Mithraism (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).  One of these corruption factors was seen where the Mithraic Initiates who wrote under the pseudonym of Paul wrote that the person must have faith in Christ -- meaning the Inner Anointing of the Mind by the Logos/Son of God -- the pagan Christians who portrayed themselves as Orthodox, added the name Jesus -- i.e., "...theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy" (see Prof. Bart D. Ehrman; The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture)

What we fail to realize today is that during this period, every single document was edited and revised to confirm the Mithraic doctrines of the Roman Church. The noted Church Historian Eusebius quotes the Church Father Dionysius (Hist. Eccl., Bk. 4. 23), who reports that his own epistles had been tampered with: "When my fellow Christians invited me to write letters to them I did so. These the devil's apostles have filled with tares, taking away some things and adding others. For them the woe is reserved. Small wonder then if some have dared to tamper even with the word of the Lord Himself, when they have conspired to mutilate my own humble efforts"Eusebius writes of a number of sects of Christians of his day: "Therefore they have laid their hands boldly upon the Divine Scriptures, alleging that they have corrected them. That I am not speaking falsely of them in this matter, whoever wishes may learn. For if any one will collect their respective copies, and compare them one with another, he will find that they differ greatly. Those of Asclepiades, for example, do not agree with those of Theodotus. And many of these can be obtained, because their disciples have assiduously written the corrections, as they call them, that is the corruptions, of each of them. Again, those of Hermophilus do not agree with these, and those of Apollonides are not consistent with themselves. For you can compare those prepared by them at an earlier date with those which they corrupted later, and you will find them widely different. But how daring this offense is, it is not likely that they themselves are ignorant. For either they do not believe that the Divine Scriptures were spoken by the Holy Spirit, and thus are unbelievers, or else they think themselves wiser than the Holy Spirit, and in that case what else are they than demoniacs? For they cannot deny the commission of the crime, since the copies have been written by their own hands. For they did not receive such Scriptures from their instructors, nor can they produce any copies from which they were transcribed".

Biblical scholars basically told the people the truth, but the truth was and remains unacceptable to the multitude of Churches.  Quoting from Examination of Modern NT Text Criticism: "Where history records that true sacred text survived this assault and is preserved in the traditional text, Westcott and Hort counter that the whole church participated in a conspiracy to fabricate a blended (and therefore corrupted) text. Westcott and Hort must not have believed the traditional Christian church to be genuine, but a sham. This thesis is supported by the biographies of Westcott and Hort. When J. F. D. Maurice was accused of false doctrine, Westcott commented that Orthodox Christians are like a new Islam persecuting a revival of the true Christians."

In the year 1947 an archeological discovery was made that should have totally altered the course of Christian, Jewish, and Islamic religious history. In this respect, ”History”, writes Edward Gibbon, ”is indeed little more than the register of the crimes, follies, and misfortunes of mankind” (Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire).  When the Hand of the Lord gave the gift of the Dead Sea Scrolls to the church, religious people now possessed the ability to transcend almost two thousand years of what Gibbon rightfully called ”the crimes, follies, and misfortunes of mankind”. This gift -- directly from God -- placed the source of all western religions in the hand of the church where they could view the sacred writings apart from the defilement of man-made doctrine.  In the words of Prof. Elaine Pagles: “It is the winners who write history - their way. No wonder, then, that the viewpoint of the successful majority has dominated all traditional accounts of the origin of Christianity… It suggests that these religious debates - questions of the nature of God, or of Christ - simultaneously bear social and political implications that are crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion. In simplest terms, ideas which bear implications contrary to that development come to be labeled as heresy; ideas which implicitly support it become orthodox” (see Pagles, The Gnostic Gospels).  A very important part of understanding what we believe, in relation to the truth, is to be able to go beyond the many doctrines that became infused into what came to be called the Christian religion during the almost two thousand years that God’s revelation was in the hands of mankind. In other words, we must decide whether the truth is found only in the words that Jesus spoke, or do we also consider the many doctrines and clarifications that man added along the way to also be the truth?

What does the modern believer actually know about the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay?   In an interview with Brian Brian McLaren by Christianity Today, he is quoted as stating: "One of the problems is that the average Christian in the average church who listens to the average Christian broadcasting has such an oversimplified understanding of both the Bible and of church history - it would be deeply disturbing for them to really learn about church history" (see Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right) -- to which statement we must pose the question: Does it matter?   If the very people who Jesus personally taught believed what can only be portrayed as being radically different from the beliefs that the Church adopted when they entered into a covenant with fourth century Pagan Rome -- whereby Church dogma became subject to the dictates of the emperor who at the time was not even a baptized Christian -- then the question is whether the modern believer is even prepared to understand the spiritual substance of the original teachings associated with Jesus and TheWay?   Especially if it can be proven that many of the most important core principles and teachings embraced by those who Jesus personally taught, are rejected by the modern Church as heresy today.   

When biblical scholars such as A. Powell Davies attempted to warn the Christian world that discoveries such as the Dead Sea Scrolls had confirmed what they (the scholars) had all along suspected --  (1) that there were serious differences between the dogma derived from the Epistles attributed to Paul, and that of the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay; and (2) that the Roman Church created the divinity of the man Jesus -- i.e., “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) -- modern Christians were not in the least bit prepared to understand the historical facts.  Worse yet, from a modern believer's perspective, is the statement by Edmund Wilson, an expert who worked on the Dead Sea Scrolls, when he further raised the question as to what difference it makes if “Jesus... had been trained in the discipline and imbued with the thought of a certain Jewish sect, and that he had learned from it the role that he afterwards lived...” (The Scrolls From The Dead Sea).  To the uninformed and unknowing believer, it made all the difference in the world!  If the historical man Jesus emerged out of the mystical sect of the Essenes -- and his original disciples who talked and walked with him daily, believed that Jesus was a holy man who lived a consecrated life, fulfilling the Law within himself so completely, that he became At-One with the Logos/Son of God at his baptism as stated by all Church Authorities prior to the fourth century Nicene Council held by the Roman Emperor Constantine (see At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ), then the Adam Clark Bible Commentary is correct when it states that "...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless"!!!    When Prof. John Allegro was quoted as saying that what has been revealed in the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls is a great amount of overwhelming evidence that “...may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church.   This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers.   The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine” (August 1966 issue of Harpers Magazine); what he was in fact stating is that, everything that we now know about Christian beginnings demonstrate that the Essene/Ebionites were not the heretics as they were falsely portrayed by the later Gentile church, but were in fact the body of genuine believers that held fast to the authentic teachings of Yeshua/Jesus and the New Covenant (see The Ebionite Heresy http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#TheEbioniteHeresy ).

Exoteric vs Esoteric

 

 Exoteric vs Esoteric

 In the Meme: Exoteric vs Esoteric, each of the religions has an inner spiritual meaning that is not at all understood by the mass of faith-based believers -- and only those who understand the inner esoteric meaning of their exoteric religious teachings can gain access to the Center or Truth of all Truths.  But even more important is the reality that as the believer begins to move beyond the Exoteric and into the higher reality of the Esoteric, this spiritual advancement is accomplished through the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening as the person's consciousness is Transformed and Anointed by the Inner Light.  And this is why Jesus explained to his disciples when asked why he only spoke to the masses in the enigma of parables: “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand” (Mark 4:11-12) -- further stating to his disciples: "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34).  

Why would Jesus teach each person differently -- i.e., "as they were able to hear it" -- conveying the reality that the multitude of people were not able to comprehend the true meaning of his teachings?  With respect to his disciples it was stated: "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45).  Yet, Jesus could not openly teach the spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings to the faith-based followers of whom he stated that they would be "...ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12)?  Because the multitudes fail to become the "good ground" that is personified in the parable of the Sower and the Seed (see http://SowerAndTheSeed.Ebionite.com ) where Jesus warned the faith-based believers “But if you can’t understand this story, how will you understand all the others I am going to tell? (Mark 4:13).  And what is truly important is the fact that the examples of those who were unable to comprehend the teachings, and thus could not bear the necessary spiritual fruit, were all the portrayal of the believer community -- and not, unbelievers.  Which is why Paul said of the Christians who he had personally instructed: “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able” (1 Cor 3:2).   Which means that, unless you advance beyond the text and literal meaning of the written word of the Gospels, that not only is no advancement possible, but that what you believe will lack the higher spiritual meaning, and will alienate you from the Center Core of Truth that is Spiritually Sustaining and Life-Giving.  And this fact is why Paul portrayed the written word of the scriptures as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).  

The word Exoteric can portray observing the scriptures externally in ritual and tradition.  Jesus portrayed the leaders of the Jews as "blind guides" -- portraying them as the "devil's spawn" (see The Devil's Spawn http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com ) -- because they threw away the Key of Knowledge in their carnal interpretation of the scriptures.  In order to begin to understand the esoteric or spiritual meaning of the scriptures, you must utilize them as the Key of Knowledge, and interpret them within your own mind and being (see The Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ) -- applying the application of the scriptures in your own mind and being.  Jesus taught that the Kingdom is within you (Luke 17:20-21) -- and only when the scriptures are used as the Key of Knowledge and turned within your own mind, can you begin to open the Gate of Eden and return to your own Source of Being.  Which means that only those who prepare themselves to seek the Esoteric Spiritual Meaning of the scriptures, can begin to understand the Truth of all Truths -- being taught by The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher -- and be taught by God. 

Regardless of which religion or philosophy you embrace, unless you become the "good ground" in which the seed of the Living Word has been implanted (see http://SowerAndTheSeed.Ebionite.com ), you have no idea as to the inner spiritual meaning of the teachings that you have embraced -- and you lack any inner conscious connection and understanding of the Truth.   And from a Christian perspective, while you may have said a prayer accepting Jesus as your personal lord and savior, unless you have embraced the Original Gospel Teachings -- many of which was suppressed and corrupted by the pagan Church of Rome (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ) -- then Jesus portrayed your condition in the words that you are  "...ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12)?
