Self-Knowledge -- The Wall Of Separation Dividing All People And Groups

Does Religion separate us?  No.  Isaiah present us with the facts and the truth that both critics and believers of religion have chosen to ignore -- i.e., "Those who guide this people mislead them, and those who are guided are led astray".  The Essence of all religious paths is based upon the quest for Self-Knowledge -- i.e., Gnosis or Divine Manna -- as in the adage to Know Thyself.  People who possess Self-Knowledge can't be led by blind-belief.  And in all cases, secular-political authorities corrupt the teachings, in order to control the thinking of the people.  Thereby de-spiritualizing the teachings, and rendering the them virtually worthless with respect to fulfilling the original purpose and objectives of the religion.  Which provokes the question: Is it religion that divides the people?  Or is it faux-authorities that invoke fear in the people, who are afraid to oppose the larger group who are controlled by the counterfeit leaders.  And through this fear, faux-authorities rule over the minds of the people and inhibit them from seeking Self-Knowledge -- which was and is the primary purpose of all religions movements.  Quoting from The Esoteric Gospel Teachings :

When Jesus accused the leaders of the Jews of throwing away the Key of Knowledge -- i.e., "Woe to you experts in the law! For you have taken away the key of knowledge; you did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering” (Luke 11:52) -- it is important to understand the source and type of knowledge he accused the Jews of throwing away. The word Knowledge that was being referenced to is translated from the Greek word Gnosis, as seen in the Greek Interlinear where it shows "knowledge" in this verse is translated from the word "gnosis" at . Gnosis, from a biblical perspective is defined as: "Gnosis refers to knowledge based on personal experience or perception. In a religious context, gnosis is mystical or esoteric knowledge based on direct participation with the divine." TYet, the vast majority of faith-based Christians have been programmed to believe that Gnosis is heresy.  Regardless of the fact that the word Gnosis indicates Spiritual Knowledge that is revealed or taught to the person directly from the Divine Mind within them. This Divinely Revealed Spiritual Knowledge cannot be read literally in the writings of man -- it cannot be literally written in scriptures or religious writings -- it cannot be taught by a teacher or rabbi -- because it can only be taught to the person individually by the Divine Mind whose thinking and mindset is capable of receiving the Higher Spiritual Knowledge.

When Jesus stated to the Jews that the Kingdom would never come outwardly, because it is "within you" (Luke 17:20-21), this is "...knowledge based on personal experience ...based on direct participation with the divine" within the Mind of the disciple, as the person begins to open what is portrayed as the "narrow gate", and experiences the Kingdom coming within them -- i.e., "Then Jesus said to them, Truly I tell you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God arrive with power" (Mark 9:1). Which is why Peter acknowledged the coming of the Kingdom when he stated: ”looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God” (2 Pet 3:12). Which provokes the question: How could the believers in that time-frame of the first-century, hasten or speed up the coming of the Kingdom, if it was coming externally in the outer world? Yet, in every generation, doomsday prophets have predicted Armageddon and the coming of the Kingdom in their lifetime. That modern Christians continue to preach their End Times doctrines, is because they are as the Jews who threw away the Key of Knowledge/Gnosis -- which is the application of the Gospels within them.

If the Spiritual Knowledge could not be read literally in the scriptures where it could be learned and discerned by the Jewish scholars, then what is indicated is the fact that Jesus taught that there is an esoteric meaning to the scriptures that is not apparent or even understood by reading the literal text of the scriptures. And if the meaning of the scriptures could be simply understood by reading the text, then Jesus never would have portrayed the leaders of the Jews as the "spawn of the devil" who threw away the Key of Knowledge/Gnosis. And this is demonstrated when Jesus said to the Jews: "Why do you misunderstand what I am saying? It is because your spiritual ears are deaf and you are unable to hear the truth of My word" (John 8:43 Amplified Version). As to why the Jews could not understand the 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).

Jesus did not come to be worshipped -- i.e., "Good master, what good shall I do that I may have life everlasting?" Jesus rejected being called "good master" -- as seen when Jesus answered him: "And Jesus said to him, Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone" (Luke 18:19). Which means that Jesus came to provide the Key of Knowledge/Gnosis that would enable the lost prodigal sons to open the inner "narrow gate" -- as seen in his words: " did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering” into the Kingdom, and return to their Heavenly Father. Which provokes the question: What if you worship Jesus and throw away the Key of Knowledge/Gnosis -- rejecting the Message and the body of essential knowledge/gnosis as hearsay -- and in worshipping Jesus you are obstructing those who were attempting to enter as the Jews did -- portraying those who seek the esoteric knowledge as heretics -- then the god you are worshipping is in fact the Devil -- i.e., "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires...".

In the same way that the Jews could not comprehend the Mysteries of the Kingdom because they threw away the Key of Knowledge, the Christians in their worldly carnal misinterpretation of the Gospel teachings, rejected even the sacred body of Knowledge that Jesus taught. And this fact is demonstrated throughout most of the Christian world where the word Gnosis is condemned as heresy -- and from a faith-based Christian perspective, is to be rejected. So, what this means is that Jesus accused the Jews who he portrayed as "...experts in the law", of throwing away the Key to acquire Gnosis -- which means that both Christianity and Judaism should be religions that seek to acquire Spiritual Knowledge or Gnosis that is not presented in the literal text of the scriptures where even those who are "experts in the law" remain blind to the spiritual meaning -- which Spiritual Knowledge can be portrayed as the Divine Manna of the Kingdom. In the case of modern Christians, they reject even seeking Knowledge/Gnosis -- they remain totally ignorant of using the Key of Knowledge to open the inner "narrow gate" to the Kingdom -- and they slam the door for those seeking to enter. Which means that modern Christianity is representative of Gospel Apostasy that rejects the teachings of Jesus, and opponents of Christ. Therefore, the question must be asked: Would Jesus praise Christians for rejecting the Spiritual Knowledge he came to impart to mankind? Hosea 4:6 warns that Christians will be rejected and -- "...destroyed for lack of knowledge." Isn't this the rejection of Christ by the modern Christian?

If the question is posed: Why should the word Gnosis be translated Divine Manna instead of the common knowledge drawn from the literal text of the scriptures? In the allegorical account of Exodus when Moses was guiding the Children of Israel through the wilderness, the substance they were provided for physical nourishment was portrayed as manna. Therefore, Divine Manna must be recognized as God-Given -- and is that knowledge-substance that only the Divine Mind can impart and reveal to those who embrace the Gospel teachings with the Whole of their Mind and Being -- Manna that cannot be read and found in the literal text of the scriptures without applying the Key -- Manna that cannot be written by the hands of men -- neither can Gnosis be written in any of the languages of man -- Gnosis cannot be taught by a rabbi or teacher -- and can only be taught and received in accord with the person's spiritual level of Consciousness -- and this Spiritual Knowledge/Gnosis can only be taught and imparted into the person by the Divine Mind -- i.e., "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me" (John 6:45). What we call religious teachings is the mindset and thinking that a person must embrace, in order to begin to receive the Divine Manna that can only be received directly from the Divine Mind of God. Therefore, this verse demonstrates conclusively that (1) even when a person is an expert in the written word of the scriptures, they are lacking the essential Knowledge that can be portrayed as the Spiritual Knowledge/Gnosis or Divine Manna of God and the Kingdom; and (2) there is no such thing as Gnostic scriptures that a person learns Gnosis from writings composed by the hands of man. All scriptures portray the inner journey that the person must travail, in order to begin to receive the Divine Manna in accord with the development and depth of the person's mind -- i.e., "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me" (Luke 9:23). Further stating: "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me" (Matt 10:38). And the Gospel of Mark quotes Jesus as stating: "Then Jesus called the crowd to Him along with His disciples, and He told them, If anyone wants to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me" (Mark 8:34). .
