The Old Testament As the Letter That Killeth

The Old Testament as the Letter that Killeth

In the article Original Gospel Teachings restored (see Intro To Original Gospel By The Brother Of Jesus ), I present the reality that the Old Testament has virtually nothing to do with the Gospels.  When rightly understood, the Old Testament is not the predecessor of the Gospels -- because the Old Testament was the foundation of the Mystery religion of Judaism, and the literal text has virtually nothing in common with the Gospels which emerged out of the Essenes.  The Torah was written by the Essenes or a Spiritual Essenic-people as an outreach to the idle worshiping, animal sacrificing nomadic tribe of heathen Jews.  And basically, it portrays the Law of Action and Reaction -- often portrayed as the Mosaic Law of retaliation -- i.e., an eye for an eye -- or, in modern language, the vengeful Law of Karma.   And what is portrayed as God in the Old Testament, is in fact an allegorical presentation of the Laws that bring this retributive (karmic) reaction about.   But with the removal of the essential biblical teaching on the evolution of the Soul over the course of many UNIQUE lifetimes (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development ), it has become virtually impossible for the modern reader to in any manner comprehend the spiritual meaning of the scriptures.  Quoting from The Folly Of Bad Beliefs About God

It is important to understand what the Apostle Peter and other enlightened individuals state about the scriptures is true -- and it is not only the countless inconsistencies that have been intentionally inserted into the textual body of the scriptures so they cannot be read historically -- but other literal statements that can be portrayed as "bad beliefs about God" which also serve an important higher purpose in the development of the mind of the reader. And the statement by Peter that the scriptures contain out-right "falsehoods" that if not correctly understood can cause them to be portrayed as "...the books which are able to deceive" is confirmed in the words of Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, where he writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”. Thus, what is portrayed as "...repugnant to both reason and common sense" is not at all historical -- but rather, allegorical portrayals of deeply important spiritual truths that those who believe the "falsehoods" of the literal text as actual historical events are blind to the spiritual meaning. And in believing the "falsehoods" that were intentionally inserted into the scriptures as what Peter portrays as a "test" for the reader, is representative of a condition of mind that has the power and ability to totally disenfranchise the reader from the true spiritual meaning of the written word.

The ability to bring about High-Level Thought and an enlightened assessment and understanding of man's true reality, is dependent upon the developed and evolved balance of the Linear and Intuitive Spheres of Mind (see The Trinity - Divine Pattern - Linear vs Intuitive Development Of The Mind ). And it is the purpose of the scriptures to bring about the development of the Intuitive Spheres of mind that in most people are suppressed by the dominate Linear -- and this necessary development is contingent upon allegorical catalysts and symbols inserted into the scriptures that are beyond the limits of the Linear to perceptively comprehend.  As stated throughout the article at ) the objective of the scriptures was to evolve the seeker/believer to a mature and enlightened condition of mind.  And thus, the authors did not create linear-minded historical accounts that would fail to develop the inward looking Intuitive -- which is why the Apostle Peter as quoted by his disciple Clement in the Homilies that "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".   To read the Gospels in accord with "...the understanding of our own mind", is to interpret them from a Linear literal or historical perception.  Or to read the Gospels from the perspective of "...a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without", is to inhibit the primary purpose which is to develop the seekers own Intuitive spheres of mind which enables them to begin to develop and utilize the process of Anamnesis to tap into the Inner Source of Knowledge.   

The historical "falsehoods" and easily discernable untruths which utilize symbols and catalysts, can only be resolved when the Intuitive is able to connect with the person's inner resources of mind and being (see Anamnesis - The Innate Knowledge Of The Truth Of All Truths: ) -- and is absolutely necessary to develop the believers mind beyond what Paul portrays as the "animal-soul" level of organic consciousness (see Animal-Soul ). For an important reason Paul portrayed the written text of the scriptures as the "letter that killeth" (2 Cor 3:6). And referred to them as "Jewish fables" (Titus 1:14). And what he was stating was that those who see only the text of the written word have embraced the "letter that killeth". To the Galatians who were attempting to embrace the Jewish outward ritual observances of the Torah, Paul states: “Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?” And then Paul goes on to explain to those who want to attempt to read the written word literally in an historical context as Christians do today: “For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory” (Gal 4:21-24 KJV). What this means is that what in appearance is portrayed historically in the scriptures, was not history at all -- but rather, was an allegorical facade that both preserved and concealed important spiritual truths which are not discernable and evident when reading the text of the written word. And what this means is that all the countless Jewish, Christian and Muslim clergy who read the scriptures as if they are historical accounts, are all in grave error.

In the account of the Clementine Homilies, Peter warns his disciple Clement that Simon Magus has the ability to greatly deceive the Gentiles, because they (the Gentiles) fail to understand the vision and traditions used by the authors in the composition of the scriptures. Where those who fail to understand the objective and purpose of the scriptures with respect to the development and enlightenment of the mind attempt to read them as literal historical events -- the authors of the scriptures understood the need to restore the lost prodigal sons to the Edenic Kingdom, and this could only be accomplished through the restoral of the Wholeness of Mind. Since the Gentiles and (carnal) Jews did not -- and continue not to -- understand this higher mental and spiritual objective of the authors of the scriptures, they remain easily deceived and seduced by charlatans and faux-teachers and religious authorities who attempt to read the scriptures as if they presented actual historical events.

When rightly understood, the Gospels were written in order to free the people from the shackles of Judaism -- which is why the Gospel account of Jesus portrays the Jews as the offspring of the Devil. Therefore, the case can be made for the literal text of the Old Testament being the Satanic scriptures of the spiritually disenfranchised.  If you read the article at , you will learn that the Old Testament is not the predecessor of the Gospels -- because the Old Testament was the foundation of the Mystery religion of Judaism, and the literal text has virtually nothing in common with the Gospels which emerged out of the Essenes.  In fact, the Gospels were written in order to free the people from the shackles of Judaism -- which is why the Gospel account of Jesus portrays the Jews as the offspring of the Devil i.e., "Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it" (John 8:43-44 NKJ).  . Therefore, the case can be made for the literal text of the Old Testament being the Satanic scriptures of the spiritually disenfranchised.

The greatest error of the Gentile-Church which portrayed itself as Orthodox, was made when they attached their religion to the Old Testament of the Jews -- portraying the Jews as the forerunner of the Church.  Why did the Church do this?   To provide the Church with a false and counterfeit facade of authenticity.   Therefore, what is known as Replacement Theology has been one of the primary causes of the demise of Christianity.   The Chosen People are representative of Spiritual Israel -- whereas the Jews personified in the Pharisees and Sadducees were representative of counterfeit Israel -- i.e., the offspring of the Devil.   The authors of the Gospels were representative of Spiritual Israel, who were the people of the New Covenant.  The Jews were the carnal impostors who were shackled by the Old Covenant and the literal Law of Moses.   When the Gospel account of Jesus spoke of fulfilling the tenets of the Old Testament, he was referring to the fact that the Old Testament is an allegorical portrayal of the Laws that must be fulfilled within the seeker/disciples own mind and being in order for the lost prodigal sons to be restored to the Edenic Kingdom of origination.  All reference to a coming Anointed One (Messiah/Christ), portray the Anointing of the Mind of the Seeker/Disciple who fulfills the (allegorical) Law within themselves.  Where the Jews as counterfeit Israel sacrificed animals in the temple of this world made with the hands of man, Spiritual Israel transforms the lower animal nature of the body and mind into the Living Temple that enables the seeker/disciple to be taught directly by the Indwelling Logos (see The Gospels And The PreExistent Soul That Evolves To Perfection In Many Lifetimes ).  All the references to the building of the temple and the sacrifice of animals, is an allegorical portrayal of what must be accomplished within the body and mind of the Disciple of TheWay.  And only when the necessary Wholeness (see Wholeness of Mind & Being ) embodied in the term Spiritual Israel is brought about through the fulfillment of the Royal Law within you, can the Kingdom come within the mind and body of the Disciple of TheWay (see The End Times - Armageddon/Rapture - The Coming Of The Kingdom ).   And this is why the Gospel account of Jesus stated: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).
