Are Jesus And Satan Brothers?
Are Jesus and Lucifer Brothers? Has the Republican presidential debates turned religiously ugly? (see Is Satan Jesus' Brother) Are the Mormons a cult, as most Christians contend? Or has the biblical reality come upon Christians in the warning: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee..."? (Hosea 4:6 KJV).
Perhaps the proverbial question has once again come full circle and confronted the Christian world: Can a people of (blind) faith who reject knowledge, also possess the knowledge that is necessary to begin to understand what both Jesus and Paul called the Mysteries of the Kingdom? And what this means is that you can't have it both ways -- i.e., you can't be imbued with the ignorance of a mushroom that grows in the dark, and at the same time possess the wisdom of the Light.
While I have never, ever, been associated with the Mormons, and would not in any way promote the LDS Church -- and while Joseph Smith had many human flaws -- he was not a man who promoted the cult of blind faith in the doctrines of Pagan Rome (see The Christian Judas). In fact, he very clearly took the position that man has the innate ability to know and be all things -- that is, if he intimately embraces the teachings and pattern of Jesus' life -- in contradistinction to promoting Jesus as a pagan sacrifice for living in perpetual sin as Martin Luther did (see Who Is A Believer? The Folly Of Martin Luther). And while Satan is not Jesus' Brother -- because there is a difference between the Logos and the man Jesus as presented in the original Ebionite Nazirene positions taught by Jesus (see http://Ebionite.com ) -- because Christians have rejected knowledge -- and therefore, reject Messiah/Christ who is the Source of all True Knowledge -- what Joseph Smith and the Mormons are making reference to, is the doctrine of the Two Hands of God that Rules over all human affairs that Jesus himself taught to those who have the ears to hear.
To begin to understand, you must yourself be cognizant of the biblical warning that the organic mind of man is incapable of understanding the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom (see Why Can't The Truth Of The Gospel Be Stated Literally?), and Paul's warning that when baptized and committed Christians are told the Mysteries of the Kingdom, they will condemn these higher truths of the spirit as "foolishness" (see Rejection Of Mysteries). In fact, it is because of the same lack of knowledge that had seduced the Jews of a Pharisaic mindset, that Jesus said they were the offspring of the Devil -- and the Spiritual Christians said that the Jews worshiped a Demiurge (see The Devil - The God Of The Jews) -- i.e., the god of illusion. And because the Christian Church has adopted the doctrines of Pagan Rome and the apostasy of Martin Luther, the biblical prediction has come true that the servants of Satan not only have dominion over the Church, but that it is these demons that are speaking in the ears of most Evangelical Christians who claim to hear the Holy Spirit (see Satan Speaks To The Christian Elect).
The Church of Constantine suppressed many of the earliest writings and scriptures as they converted the religion of Jesus into a (Pagan) state ordained Cult which came to be called Christianity. And in the writings of the Apostle Peter's disciple Clement, the teaching on the two Hands of God is presented (see The Left Hand Of God). With respect to the proverbial Simon Magus, Peter states: "He is a power of the left hand of God, and has authority to do harm to those who know not God, so that he has been able to involve you in diseases; but by these very diseases, which have been permitted to come upon you by the good providence of God, you, seeking and finding him who is able to cure, have been compelled to submit to the will of God on the occasion of the cure of the body, and to think of believing, in order that in this way you may have your souls as well as your bodies in a healthy state."
Notice that Simon Magus has "authority" from the Left Hand of God, to bring about, initiate and invoke, harm among the people -- i.e., the lost prodigal sons who dwell under the shackles and control of the Citizen of the Far Country, which Paul called the god of this world. More importantly is the fact that ultimately, the evil of Simon Magus and the apostates who followed him, as well as those who Satan has control over in and out of the Church, are ordained by God to bring about good through the growth that results from self-induced tribulation. In the writings of the later Clement, the 2nd century Bishop of Alexandria, a most important explanation is set forth -- the ignorance of which, has immersed the Christian world in a folly of it's own making: “But among the lies, the false prophets also told some true things. And in reality they prophesied ‘in an ecstasy,’ as the servants of the apostate”. Using the early Christian writing known as the Shepherd of Hermas, Clement then explains: “And the Shepherd, the angel of repentance, says to Hermas, of the false prophet: ‘For he speaks some truths. For the devil fills him with his own spirit, if perchance he may be able to cast down any one from what is right.’ All things, therefore, are dispensed from heaven for good, ‘that by the Church may be made known the manifold wisdom of God, according to the eternal foreknowledge, which He purposed in Christ.’ Nothing withstands God: nothing opposes Him: seeing He is Lord and omnipotent. Further, the counsels and activities of those who have rebelled, being partial, proceed from a bad disposition, as bodily diseases from a bad constitution, but are guided by universal Providence to a salutary issue, even though the cause be productive of disease. It is accordingly the greatest achievement of divine Providence, not to allow the evil, which has sprung from voluntary apostasy, to remain useless, and for no good, and not to become in all respects injurious. For it is the work of the divine wisdom, and excellence, and power, not alone to do good (for this is, so to speak, the nature of God, as it is of fire to warm and of light to illumine), but especially to ensure that what happens through the evils hatched by any, may come to a good and useful issue, and to use to advantage those things which appear to be evils, as also the testimony which accrues from temptation”.
Within these words are contained a profound truth that all believers today must realize. The Power of God is so all-encompassing, that even the apostate teachers and prophets still serve the Lord. Is it not forewarned and written that: “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness’” (Matt 7:22-23 NAS). Therefore, it is established that even among those who prophesy, cast out demons, and perform many great miracles in the name of the Lord, they are neither saved, nor are they affirmed by Jesus. This means that from your perspective as a believer, for you to be faithful to the scriptures, you must question everything -- and that includes every word that myself or anyone else writes for you to read. A true disciple of the Light is one who proves the truth; not one who believes something because it sounds good to his carnal mind.
Why would you listen to a man who tells you that you must believe, when the Lord himself told you not to blindly believe even what he taught; as can be seen where it is written: “If any of you really determines to do God’s will, then you will certainly know whether my teaching is from God or is merely my own” (John 7:17 TLB). That a true seeker has the power to prove the truth, means that the sin of blind belief which the Church promotes, is a rejection of Messiah/Christ. And that every man and woman possesses the innate power to discern ultimate Truths -- and should therefore reject blind belief as a cancer of the spirit -- is equally true of any concept about life and creation that is presented to you. Everything can be proven by those who “really determines to do God’s will”. And what of the false teachings of Christ that have been grafted into the church? What both Clement and the scriptures predict is that the Lord will use the apostles of error to bring about good. Listen to their prophesy! Heed their warning! Believe their words as if the Great day of the Lord will be tomorrow! The prophets of doom are correct, and Armageddon is imminent! But it is not coming in the manner that they predict (see Lk 17:20-21). If you pray to the Lord with a pure heart and a clear mind, he will teach you the things you should know about the coming of the Great Spiritual Armageddon that the scriptures speak of -- and what is confirmed is that the lost prodigal sons and daughter will see the Kingdom come within them (see http://GateOfEden.com ). This is just one of the many examples of how the Lord uses the apostles of error to preserve sacred truths for those found worthy to know their true meaning. It was the same with the Jews at the time of Jesus -- i.e., where they had built a temple of abomination, everything set forth was an allegorical portrayal of the Final Temple that even the Jews now admit that Jesus inaugurated (see http://TheThreeLies.com ).
Take to heart also the words of Clement when he writes: “It is accordingly the greatest achievement of divine Providence, not to allow the evil, which has sprung from voluntary apostasy, to remain useless, and for no good, and not to become in all respects injurious”. How, then, does the Lord induce the apostles of error to ultimately serve God and the Kingdom? He moves them by the force of their own ego and greed. There has been one unquestionable truth that has manifested itself throughout every generation of Christian history. It is an indisputable fact that this false prophesy has been very lucrative to promote. The prophets of doom have often lived lavish lifestyles off the collection plate that has been received in the name of God and the end times. As perhaps one classic example: Pope Gregory I, who as pope is supposed to be infallible, persuaded the rich people in his day that the end of the world was at hand, and if they wanted to go to heaven, they had better pass on their property to the church before the coming of the great day. The result was that the Papacy became the richest land owner in Europe. This same prediction -- that the end of the world has arrived and is imminent -- has been repeated an uncountable number of times in almost every generation since the beginning of our common era.
The Two Powers of God -- i.e., the Left Hand of Correction, and the Right Hand that draws the Disciple of TheWay into the Inner Kingdom ( http://GateOfEden.com ) -- is set forth and explained by the Apostle Peter. Quoting the above Divine Manna web site where Peter explains about the two Hands of God: "For thus from the beginning was a law laid by God, the Creator of all things, on each of the two princes, him of the right hand and him of the left, that neither should have power over any one whom they might wish to benefit or to hurt, unless first he had sat down at the same table with them. As, then, when you partook of meat offered to idols, you became servants to the prince of evil, in like manner, if you cease from these things, and flee for refuge to God through the good Prince of His right hand, honoring Him without sacrifices, by doing whatsoever He wills, know of a truth that not only will your bodies be healed, but your souls also will become healthy. For He only, destroying with His left hand, can quicken with His right; He only can both smite and raise the fallen." When the Christian Church entered into a covenant relationship with Pagan Rome, they very much "...sat down at the same table... [and] became servants to the prince of evil" And, because the Church has yet to repent of this evil, they remain shackled by the god of this world to the abyss of ignorance and blind belief.
Again Peter explains: "But that this is so, has been said even by the law in the person of God: ‘I will kill, and, I will make alive; I will strike, and I will heal. For, in truth, He kills and makes alive. He kills through the left hand, that is, through the evil one, who has been so composed as to rejoice in afflicting the impious. And he saves and benefits through the right band, that is, through the good one, who has been made to rejoice in the good deeds and salvation of the righteous."
And in prayer Peter states: "Deliver me, O Lord of all, from Thy fearful judgment. Do not give the enemy power to swallow me up, and to become heir of my soul, as of that of him who is hanging on the left; for I see how the devil joyfully takes his soul, and his body disappears." But Christians today are as the men of Nineveh of whom it is said: "And should I not pity Nineveh, that great city, in which are more than one hundred and twenty thousand persons who cannot discern between their right hand and their left?" (Jonah 4:11 NKJ). For as it was said to Job: "Then I will also confess to you that your own right hand can save you" (Job 40:14 NKJ). And in the Psalms: "You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore... Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; you will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me" (Ps 16:11;138:7 NKJ). Which is the reason why Jesus said that those on the right will enter into life, while those on the left will inherit the tribulation of their deeds and ways: "Then He will also say to those on the left hand, 'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels" (Matt 25:41 NKJ).
While I am not in any measure promoting the LDS Church, when Christians condemn the doctrine of the two brothers, they are in fact condemning their own ignorance -- i.e., "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee...". But then again, how can a religion that promotes blind faith and condemns the Mysteries of God and the Kingdom -- and rejects the Divine Manna that the Lord provides for the Faithful Disciples of TheWay -- even begin to know right from wrong? How many voters who call themselves Christian, will vote for a Hillary Clinton, who supports the spiritual disenfranchisement of young children in public schools, the murder of the unborn as a matter of choice, or the pornification of our culture through the suspension of all moral and spiritual standards? And if someone such as Mitt Romney wins the Conservative nomination, how many Evangelical Christians will support Hillary Clinton by staying away from the election? Thus, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
