Using The Key Of Knowledge To Enter The Narrow Gate

Using The Key Of Knowledge To Enter Through the "Narrow Gate" And Return To The Kingdom Of Our Father

In the symbolism of the Gospels, a dog or swine who cannot receive what is holy, portrays a person who is too carnal to comprehend man's higher spiritual reality.  In much the same way, a Jew represents someone who has received the Law of God but observed it outwardly in ritual and tradition. And in the symbolism of the scriptures, it is not the actual Jewish people who crucified Christ -- but rather, any person who observes the Law outwardly in ritual and tradition without observing and living the Law in word, thought, desire and deed -- which constitutes
picking up your own cross DAILY, and travail in TheWay, as Jesus commanded -- i.e., "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me" (Luke 9:23).   The Chosen people are portrayed as Israel -- i.e., “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel” (Matt 15:24).  When the symbolism is understood, there are many Jewish people as well as Christians and others who seek the necessary Wholeness to be Spiritual Israel -- i.e., "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). And by teaching the fulfillment of the Law within the person's own mind and being, Jesus taught how to achieve Wholeness and the subsequent stages of birth -- contrary to the false prophets and elect who have been deceived who preach an outward kingdom: "For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect" (Matt 15:24).  
What this means is that, in accord with the definition of the symbol, all the teachers and preachers who call themselves Christians and preach an outward kingdom, are in realty Jews who have Crucified the Christ in their outward interpretations and rituals of observance of the Law of God (see Jesus Fulfilled And Taught The Natural Fulfillment Of The Laws Of God: ).  And when they preach and teach their congregations that Jesus nailed the Law to the cross, the counterfeit preachers and teachers have thrown away the Key of Knowledge, and are leading the flock of believers through the broad-way of self-destruction -- i.e., "...For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction" (see Matt 7:13).  And this is why Jesus said: "How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering" (Luke 11:52). While the Christians, like the Jews before them who threw away the Key of Knowledge, look for the Kingdom to come outwardly upon the earth, the Gospel itself states that the Kingdom will never come upon the earth, because it is within you -- and it is therein that you must seek it: "And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, See here! or, see there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21). If the words of Jesus are true -- and the Kingdom is within you -- then the question that Christians should be asking, is what each believer must do to enter the Kingdom? The answer, according to Jesus, is the proper intimate application of the scriptures when they are used as the Key of Knowledge by turning the scriptures within your own mind and being -- i.e., "How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering" (Luke 11:52). Thus, in understanding these words spoken to the Jews, the questions must be asked: How did the Pharisees and Jewish authorities "...hide the key to knowledge from the people"? Why did Jesus condemn the leaders of the Jews for failing to enter the Kingdom themselves? -- i.e., "...You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves"! And how did the religious leaders of the Jews "...prevent others from entering?" If the true purpose of the scriptures is as a guide and text book on how to enter the Kingdom within each of us, then not only the Jews, but also the modern Christians, are equally guilty of throwing away the Key of Knowledge -- and hiding the entrance to those seeking to enter the Kingdom.

In further clarification, the TEV version of the this verse states: “How terrible for you teachers of the Law! You have kept the key that opens the door to the house of knowledge; you yourselves will not go in, and you stop those who are trying to go in!” (Luke 11:52 TEV). Thus, the scriptures when properly used, have the ability to "open the [inner] door to the House of Knowledge" -- and their outward interpretations whereby they seek the Kingdom to come outwardly (see The End Times - Armageddon/Rapture - The Coming Of The Kingdom  ), inhibits believers from "going in [the House of Knowledge]" -- and by teaching the people their outward/historical interpretations, the Jews inhibited the community of believers from entering the House of Knowledge -- thereby denying the people from inheriting not only their Ultimate Destiny, but denying them even the knowledge of their relationship to their Heavenly Father.

Can you just call upon the name of the Lord and be saved?  As the modern Christian who has embraced the dogma of the Church of Constantine believes?  In the Bible translation known as The Message, the above reality of Jesus' words with respect to the usage of the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge is portrayed in true clarity. In this translation when Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him and said: "If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you" (John 8:31-32 TheMessage) -- and once again, neither Christian or Jew who have thrown away the Key of Knowledge can understand these words which are of the utmost importance. Jesus didn't say that they would believe the truth -- or that they would discern what they believed would be dogmatic truth out of the scriptures or some book written by other men -- neither did Jesus say that the Kingdom is a place you go to after you physically die -- but rather, what Jesus conveyed to them is that, ONLY if they follow in TheWay by picking up their own cross in the footsteps of the Gospel account of Jesus (see
The Cross You Must Bear To Your Own Crucifixion ), that they "...will experience for yourselves the truth, ...and it is this SELF-EXPERIENCED TRUTH that...will free you" from the error and ignorance that consumes the people of this world -- and especially the blind guides who portray themselves as rabbis, teachers, clergy, religious leaders and authorities.  How will you experience and Know the Truth?  In the original uncorrupted Gospel teachings, Jesus taught his followers to fulfill the Law within their own mind so that they receive the Anointing/Christing of the Holy Spirit and become At-One with the Divine Mind (see At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God  ).  And this is why the followers of Jesus are warned not to be called a teacher or rabbi -- i.e., "These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you. But the Anointing [Christing] which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same Anointing [Christing] teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him" (1 Jn 2:26-29 - see The One Teacher ).  He will appear, only when you pick up your own cross and travail in TheWay and experience the Kingdom coming within you -- 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). 

What is being presented to the congregation of believers is the conflict of the two paradigms of human consciousness -- i.e., (1) is the mind of an infant empty and in need of being taught by the teachers of this world? Or, (2) is every infant born with an inner connection to the Source of all Truth and Life within the core essence of their own mind?  Thus, if what Jesus taught is true -- that each of us is the prodigal son or daughter who is presently dwelling in this, the Far Country -- and Eden's Gate and the entrance into the Kingdom is within the mind of every person, and the the primary purpose of the Gospels is to convey to the flock of believers how to pass through the "narrow gate" and Consciously enter Eden's Gate, where you will gain entrance into the Kingdom. And if we pose the question if this is what the Church has done? Like the Pharisees who were in denial of Jesus' teachings, many Bible translations simply refuse to interpret Luke 17:21 correctly. In analysis of this great biblical controversy, Robertson’s Word Pictures of the New Testament writes: What Jesus says to the Pharisees is that they, as others, are to look for the kingdom of God within themselves, not in outward displays and supernatural manifestations. It is not a localized display ‘Here’ or ‘There.’ It is in this sense that in Luke 11:20 Jesus spoke of the kingdom of God as ‘come upon you,’ speaking to Pharisees”. The article then goes on to add that the only other instance of the Greek word “entos” being used in the New Testament, is at Matthew 23:26, where the Pharisees are told to clean “the inside of the cup”. Moreover, the Wescott and Hort Greek text, as well as most other authorities, render the translation of this word: “inside of you is”. Which means that the original teachings of TheWay was a system whereby the seeker/disciple takes the yoke of Messiah/Christ upon themselves -- picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay -- which enables the disciple to enter through the "narrow gate" within them, and dwell in the Kingdom, while still physically alive in the body -- overcoming the division of heaven and earth within the person -- i.e., the Lord commanded his followers to "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14). Because the Church threw away the Key of Knowledge, and adopted pagan dogmatic doctrines of belief, the Christian world sits idly complacent on the side of the "broad-way ...that leads to destruction" -- giving lip service and worshiping their brother, that they must themselves imitate, in order to enter into Life. And it was for this reason that the Adam Clark Commentary stated that if the original Gospel portrayal of the historical man Jesus was correct, that "...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless"!!! (see The Pre-Nicene Gentile Witness ).  Yet, the modern believer rejects the words and teachings of Jesus, while embracing the doctrines of the pagan Church of Rome that even corrupted the very Words that God spoke to mankind (see The Corruption Of The Words That God Spoke To Mankind ).  Why?  Why did the fourth century Church change and corrupt the very Words that God spoke to mankind?  To re-create the man Jesus as the incarnate sun-god of the pagan world (see Censorship Of The Truth And The Facts ).  It is a fact that Jesus himself stated that mankind as the lost prodigal sons, don't need him to achieve the necessary Wholeness of Mind and Spirit to enter the Kingdom -- i.e.,  "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). What Jesus was stating was that those people who he portrayed as "righteous", did not need him as a physician who came to heal the sick, because they had on their own achieved the necessary subsequent stages of birth by entering into a Divine Marriage (see The Divine Marriage ) -- thereby bringing about the necessary Wholeness, Perfection and Completion. Which raises the question: What, then, is stopping you, the reader, from achieving the Wholeness that Jesus himself confirmed you have the innate ability to bring about in your life without any need of him (Jesus) or any other physician? The correct translation of the words: Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand which is preached in our Churches, is more accurately translated: "Open and unloose the mind" -- meaning, that you must release your thinking from the shackles of the Manichean doctrine of Original Sin, and embrace the Gospel teaching of Original Opportunity (see Original Sin Rejects Gospel Teachings ). The meaning of the original Greek conveys a message of great depth that is not apparent in our English translations today. To phrase the thought that is being expressed, the true meaning is to “Open and unloose the mind, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand”. The Amplified Bible which presents the essence of the biblical text, states: “Repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance; seek God’s purpose for your life], for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” This is truly important for the person of faith to come to terms with -- for it is the beginning of TheWay.

Did the Church teach and guide the congregation of believers through the "narrow strait" Edenic Gate into the Inner Kingdom? Giordano Bruno was an Italian Dominican friar who taught the people the Original Gospel teachings. In his acknowledgment of the Inner Kingdom, Bruno taught that "Within every man there is a soul-flame, kindled at the sun of thought, which lends us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge." And while this Inner Light of the Kingdom exists within all of mankind, the vast majority of people ignore and reject seeking the Inner Source as stated by Bruno: "The Divine Light is always in man, presenting itself to the senses and to the comprehension, but man rejects it." Thus, like the Jews and Pharisees who threw away the Key of Knowledge, the Church not only rejected the witness of Giordano Bruno, but they burnt him at the stake for teaching against the Church dogma. That the primary objective of the Gospel is to prepare and enable the seeker/disciple to enter the Kingdom which Jesus taught is within the Core and Essence of your own Mind and Being by achieving Wholeness and entering into the Divine Marriage (see
The Divine Marriage ), is further demonstrated in Jesus' condemnation of the blind religious leaders as seen in the words: "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to" (Matt 23:13). Which means that the Kingdom of God is not something that will come if we wait for it -- but rather, it is a reality which man must seek and find and enter -- within his own mind, being and deeper levels of Consciousness. Which means that unless you become the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed (see ), you will not be able to enter the Kingdom.
