The Purpose Of The Natural Laws And The Prison

If you Google the word Karma, you get a great number of references to Hinduism and Buddhism. Which means that those who relate the word Karma to the Eastern Religions, have no clue as to the understanding of the Natural Laws as taught by Jesus who warned: "Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison" (Matt 5:25). 
This teaching on the prison that is rarely mentioned by the modern-day authorities of the Church is so important, that it is also found in the Gospel of Luke (see Luke 12:58-59). But what does this mean? When you interact with your brothers and sisters, you are interacting with the Natural Laws -- wherein your own actions are returned back to you. Therefore, Jesus warned that if you fail to come to terms with the Law through your interaction with your adversaries (your brothers and sisters), that you will be cast into a type of prison -- i.e., "Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing" (Matt 5:26) -- and you will remain in that prison until you have come to terms with your adversary, and "...,hast paid the uttermost farthing". Which of course confirms that biblical teachings that "A man reaps what he sows ...For with the same judgment you pronounce, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you ...He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity"This last teaching is perhaps one of the most important, because it states that if you force your will upon another person, that you will be deprived of your own freewill in the future. An important teaching that was removed from our Gospels but has been preserved in the Gospel Of the Nazirenes reads: "And if you desire something as strongly as you desire life, and it turns you from the truth, cast it out from you, for it is better to enter life possessing truth, than losing it, to be cast into outer darkness. And if that which costs others pain or sorrow seems desirable to you, cast it out of your heart; in that way you will attain peace. It is better to endure sorrow, than to inflict it, on those who are weaker. Be you therefore perfect, even as your Parent who is in heaven is perfect" (see  ).

What this means is that like the movie Groundhog Day, you will continue to interact and confront with the same adversary or situation -- from life to life in however many lives is required for you to "Settle matters quickly with your adversary..." -- until, in the words of Jesus, you "...,hast paid the uttermost farthing" of what you owe in the debt under the Laws. In fact, you cannot advance beyond that point in your development in however many lifetimes is required, until you can "Settle matters quickly with your adversary..." as Jesus taught. The vast majority of Christians can't understand the spiritual meaning of the scriptures or comprehend their own higher Soul-Reality, because they can't mentally and spiritually advance beyond the level of their self-imposed imprisonment. And while they lead lives embracing the Gospels with their words, because they fail to live in accord with those teachings, they can't advance beyond an immature level of understanding so long as they remain imprisoned. They reason that Jesus nailed the Law to the cross, and they therefore have a disposition with respect to their accountability to the Law. They therefore ignore the warning: "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'" (Matt 7:15-23).

Once properly understood in light of the genuine teachings of Jesus, the Sermon on the Mount is basically a means to (1) fulfill the Law and avoid the obstacles of imprisonment of our path of advancement; and (2) for those imprisoned, to get out of their self-imposed jail that is maintained by the Laws that require that "...till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (Mat 5:26). Of course, because of our inherent organic human blindness in conjunction with the inherent Spiritual Amnesia (  ), we cannot make any higher mental and spiritual progress so long as we dwell in a state of self-imposed imprisonment. With respect to the Law that Jesus portrays in his teachings, even this can be taken to the next level of understanding in the words: "In everything, then, do to others as you would have them do to you. For this is the essence of the Law and the prophets" (Matt 7:12). But to release yourself from the Laws that imprison you by restricting you to your present level of mental and spiritual advancement -- Laws that can keep you bound until you overcome and prevail over the issue of imprisonment -- you must continue to repeat the tests in life that you have yet to overcome. In each life you must once again re-enter the vibration of mind and reality that caused your imprisonment. If you are a thief, then you must see the error of your ways when you are either a thief, or the victim of a thief when you pray for the soul of a thief. If you are a whore, a rapist, a murderer, or whatever in life is your cause of imprisonment, you will remain at that level and position in life to life -- with “ means to come out from there, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” or debt to your brothers and sisters.

The vast majority of people journey through life blindly. They are as ships without a rudder -- being driven too and fro by the external winds and currents of the earth and man's various cultures. Men of great wisdom who have sought self-knowledge have attempted to convey to the multitudes that when the Laws are understood, we in effect create the lives we live by virtue of our own actions towards our brothers and sisters. When the disciples of Jesus ask the question: "Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, 'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?'" (John 9:1-2), the disciples were continuing a teaching with Jesus about the causal-factors of blindness. No Christian in our modern society would ask their pastor if the sins of a person in a former lifetime was the cause of the person being born blind. The question was (1) whether the causal-factor of the man's blindness was from the sin of the man in a former life; (2) the manner and environment in which the man's parents reared him; (3) and Jesus then explained that the man's blindness was due to the human condition that all of mankind who dwell in the "outer darkness" of mind and being are subject to (see The Three Causes Of Human Blindness ). Jesus was making reference to the organic human condition of blindness with respect to those who have been cast into the "outer darkness" of mind and being when he explained this blindness to his disciples: “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). And this third condition of organic human blindness can only be cured by seeking the Truth and receiving the transformational Anointing/Christing of the Mind (see Jesus Taught To Become The Christ ).

When Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders that the …tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you” (Matt 21:31 RSV), such a statement simply has no place within the present day understanding of Christian teachings. Why? Because from the perspective of the dogma of the Church, modern Christians are without a means to explain Jesus' words. Therefore, most Bible commentaries simply ignore the implications of this passage of scripture . One widely used commentary attempts to correct the text by changing the words to “instead of” -- which would then make the meaning dogmatically correct and read: “The tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God instead of you. In this verse of scripture we are presented with one of the core reasons why the original followers of Jesus believed differently than most Christians today -- inquiring whether the man was born blind because of the sins incurred in a previous life. Therefore, the question that must be posed is: When will the chief priests and elders enter into the kingdom? Modern Christian doctrine states that because of their disbelief and rejection of Christ, they will be cut off from the face of God, and condemned to eternal judgment. And yet we cannot deny the fact that Jesus' own words convey the message that there will come a time when the chief priests and elders will also enter the Kingdom of God -- and it will be at a time after the tax collectors and harlots who believed, repented, picked up their own crosses and followed in TheWay.

In the same way that the disciples asked Jesus the question: Was the man's present blindness caused by the sin in the man's previous lives, unresolved causal-factors can imprison you until they are resolved. Jesus conveyed this reality in the words: "Reconcile quickly with your adversary, while you are still on the way to court. Otherwise he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison" (Matt 5:25). How long can our actions imprison us? In the words of Jesus: "Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing." Therefore, the answer is: Like the movie Groundhog Day, How many lives will be required for you to resolve the issues with your adversary that is the causal-factor inhibiting your progress in this and the subsequent lives your Soul will live? Thus the oft ignored warning: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7). Or, in the words of the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen who is known as the Prince of Christian learning in the third century: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis). That the Natural Laws of Creation monitor every event in our lives, is the basis of the statement: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14). The answer to this dilemma is revealed in the fact that each of us is moving through life in a Labyrinth Of The Natural Laws (see The Laws That Control Our Life ) -- and these Laws within which the whole of our life is immersed, responds directly to the everyday choices that we make.

How does "a worse thing come unto thee" based upon each person's actions? And what this means is that the judgments of the Natural Laws that are initiated by each person's actions against them in their future tribulations, will have been invoked by the causal-factors of the man's previous actions -- which cannot be resolved until the man "hast paid the uttermost farthing." How is each person imprisoned until they have repaid the "...uttermost farthing"? And what is the fate of each person when they finely have repaid the "...uttermost farthing"? What then? Thus, this reality that is no longer understood by the modern Christian is why the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen writes with respect to each person's station in life "...that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel [person] has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor" (see ). Which confirms that question of the disciples when they asked whether it was the sin of a previous life that caused the malady of the man's present life -- the sin of his parents and the environment in which the person was reared -- of has the person yet to reap the benefits of living a Godly Life and is in the process of picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay in pursuit of achieving the Anointing/Christing as taught: Jesus Taught To Become The Christ ). .
