The Law And The Gospels

 The Law And The Gospels

Is there a difference between the Old and New Testaments?  No.  The Old and New Testaments are saying the same thing but written in different languages (metaphors,allegories).  Regardless of the fact that in the Homilies of Clement the Apostle Peter rightly claimed that when the spiritual meaning is understood, that there is absolutely no difference between the two testaments -- i.e., (quoting): "Moreover, if any one has been thought worthy to recognize both as preaching one doctrine, that man has been counted rich in God, understanding both the old things as new in time, and the new things as old.”  The Law of Moses employs extreme allegorical symbolism which Jesus taught the meaning of to his disciples and followers as demonstrated at The Spiritual Meaning And Fulfillment Of The Law .  And this is why in the Homilies of his disciple Clement the Apostle Peter is quoted as stating that “For on this account Jesus is concealed from the Jews, who have taken Moses as their teacher, and Moses is hidden from those who have believed Jesus. For, there being one teaching by both, God accepts him who has believed either of these".  Wherein Peter then explained:  “Neither, therefore, are the Hebrews condemned on account of their ignorance of Jesus, by reason of Him who has concealed Him, if, doing the things commanded by Moses, they do not hate Him whom they do not know. Neither are those from among the Gentiles condemned, who know not Moses on account of Him who hath concealed him, provided that these also, doing the things spoken by Jesus, do not hate Him whom they do not know."

This provision in the words that the believers " not hate Him whom they do not know"  As stated, speaking of the Jews whose hearts were hardened for the spiritual advancement of the Gentiles, Paul warns the gentile non-Jewish believers: "If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, do not boast over those branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you. You will say then, 'Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.' Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid. For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either" (Rom 11:17-21).  Yet, in rejection of this warning, the gentiles have perpetually made war upon the Jews -- blinding themselves to the spiritual meaning of the Law which Jesus revealed only to his original (Ebionite Nazirene) disciples -- who the gentile church condemned as heretics (see The Ebionite Heresy ).   Thus, in their condemnation of the original disciples and followers of Jesus, God has brought their own judgment back upon the gentiles -- rendering the modern Christian blind to the spiritual meaning of both the Old and New Testaments.   That modern Christian dogma has virtually nothing in common with what Jesus actually taught, is confirmed in the facts as explored at The Law Of The Gospels .

This hatred and rejection of the Jews on the part of the gentile Christians reached new heights when in 1543, Martin Luther published “The Jews and Their Lies,” which today is shocking in its venom, and even for its time stood out as particularly cruel and intolerant. In the 65,000-word treatise, he calls for a litany of horrors, including the destruction of synagogues, Jewish schools and homes; for rabbis to be forbidden to preach; for the stripping of legal protection of Jews on highways; for the confiscation of their money. The Jews are, wrote Luther, a “base, whoring people, that is, no people of God, and their boast of lineage, circumcision, and law must be accounted as filth.”  Yet, Peter warned that it was the Hand of God that inhibited the Jews from embracing the New Testament.  In the writings of Peter's disciple Clement, the Apostle states that it means nothing to be born a Jew or Christian, or to be called -- because the opportunity you were given by either birth, or your religious affiliation, is not by virtue of your own choice, but the result of the Hand of God upon your life -- as seen in the words: “Then Peter, wondering at the eagerness of the multitudes, answered, You see, brethren, how the words of our Lord are manifestly fulfilled. For I remember His saying, Many shall come from the east and from the west, the north and the south, and shall recline on the bosoms of Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob. But many, said He also, are called, but few chosen. The coming, therefore, of these called ones is fulfilled. But inasmuch as it is not of themselves, but of God who has called them and caused them to come, on this account alone they have no reward, since it is not of themselves but of Him who has wrought in them. But if, after being called, they do things that are excellent, for this is of themselves, then for this they shall have a reward”.

This truth is further spoken of when Peter explained: “For even the Hebrews who believe Moses, and do not observe the things spoken by him, are not saved, unless they observe the things that were spoken to them. For their believing Moses was not of their own will, but of God, who said to Moses, Behold, I come to thee in a pillar of cloud, that the people may hear me speaking to thee, and may believe thee for ever. Since, therefore, both to the Hebrews and to those who are called from the Gentiles, believing in the teachers of truth is of God, while excellent actions are left to every one to do by his own judgment, the reward is righteously bestowed upon those who do well. For there would have been no need of Moses, or of the coming of Jesus, if of themselves they would have understood what is reasonable. Neither is there salvation in believing in teachers and calling them lords”.  Yet the blindness of the modern Christians have promoted the man-made dogma that they are "saved" by praying to Jesus to be their personal lord and savior -- which salvation they claim regardless of the manner in which they live their lives. 

When Peter warned that "For there would have been no need of Moses, or of the coming of Jesus, if of themselves they would have understood what is reasonable", he has confirmed the core teaching of the Gospels on seeking only The One Teacher There is only One Teacher -- and that is the indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet within your own mind that the scriptures use as a catalyst to connect with and learn from directly. As stated by the Apostle Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement: "...And therefore I advise not only wise men, but indeed all men who have a desire of knowing what is advantageous to them, that they seek after the True Prophet; for it is He alone who knoweth all things, and who knoweth what and how every man is seeking. For He is within the mind of every one of us, but in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative; but He works in those who seek after that which is profitable to their souls, and kindles in them the light of knowledge. Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other. But He is soon found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth, and whose souls are not taken possession of by wickedness. For He is present with those who desire Him in the innocence of their spirits, who bear patiently, and draw sighs from the bottom of their hearts through love of the truth; but He deserts malevolent minds, because as a prophet He knows the thoughts of every one. And therefore let no one think that he can find Him by his own wisdom, unless, as we have said, he empty his mind of all wickedness, and conceive a pure and faithful desire to know Him. For when any one has so prepared himself, He Himself as a prophet, seeing a mind prepared for Him, of His own accord offers Himself to his knowledge”.   Yet, the modern believer rejects this core Gospel Truth, and teaches that it does not matter how you live your life once you say your prayer accepting Jesus as your personal lord and savior. 

With respect to the reading and studying of the allegorical scriptures, Peter further warned 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".  If we ask the question: What is being said to the believer who desires to be faithful to the Gospel Teachings?  By design, the scriptures cannot be understood by the organic mind of the faith-based believers.  And this fact is confirmed when Peter stated: "when the law of God (scriptures) is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind"?  Why?  Because it is composed in a symbolic language that can only be interpreted and understood by the inward-looking Intuitive attributes of mind that must be developed.  The outward-looking Linear spheres of mind attempts to interpret all things literally and historically -- which is why Peter warns that "...For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself".   Further, Peter warns that "...For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".  What this means is that if you attempt to interpret the scriptures in accord with a Biblical Commentary -- or in accord with the teachings of a Church -- or from a human thought-perspective -- that you will not only fail to understand the meaning of the scriptures, but you will alienate and disenfranchise your mind from the true spiritual meaning.  Why?  Because the scriptures are composed in the allegorical language of the Soul that employs allegorical catalysts that are used to develop the inward-looking Intuitive Spheres of Mind.

The Gospel teachings were destroyed by the Gentile Church, because they were too carnal to understand the Law and it's application within the person's own mind. People who worship Jesus as the latest incarnation of the proverbial sun-god, are incapable of comprehending the spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings (see )
