Christians Don't Believe The Bible

They Reject The Words Spoken By God

 

 

In the Gospel accounts there are only two instances where God the Father spoke directly to mankind.   Yet, the Christian world not only knowingly rejects the very Words of God spoken to mankind -- concealing these Ultra Important Words spoken directly by God to all of mankind -- and knowingly clings instead to the words of a Roman emperor who ordered the bishops who held allegiance to him, to change one of the most important Gospel teachings.   While Jesus is the Truth, and following him in imitation is TheWay, the Christian world rejects the whole foundation and objective of his teachings.   Choosing instead the doctrines of the Pagan Emperor of Rome with whom the most heathen segment of the Church entered into a covenant with -- rejecting the (New) Covenant with God the Father.   This heathen segment of the Church which called itself Orthodox, stood by while the armies of Rome hunted down the True Christians who refused and rejected the religion of the Emperor -- murdering them -- and then corrupted the Gospels to make then support the dogma of Pagan Rome.   That this can be proven beyond any doubt whatsoever, is easily accomplished.   That the modern-day dogma of the Church has in fact been rejected in the New Testament, is demonstrated conclusively in The Ten Minute Test of TheLie.

 

While the Gospels as originally written were the Truth and TheWay, the Christian world has knowingly chosen a lie, over the very Words of the Father spoken to mankind.   Because the Christian world abandoned Messiah/Christ for a manmade pagan god, the Church dwells in a Spiritual Diaspora -- alienated from the knowledge of the Kingdom -- unable to enter the True Spiritual Temple -- unable to walk in TheWay.    That the modern Christian world continues to reject the very words spoken by God to mankind, and continues to preach the dogma of Pagan Rome -- even after being shown the truth -- is both the reason why the Christian world dwells in the abyss of profound spiritual ignorance, and why the modern Church is presently orchestrating its own demise.   Southern Baptist leaders such as T.C. Pickney was quoted in a May 6th, 2004 Associated Press story where Pickney cited research gathered by the Southern Baptist Council on Family Life which reported in 2002 "...that 88 percent of the children raised in evangelical homes leave church at the age of 18, never to return."

 

From a fourth century pagan perspective, the Words spoken by God were unacceptable and thus rejected, and they were edited out and replaced by the dogma of what came to be the Church of Rome.  This rejection of God's Words was under the guise that the disciples who walked and spoke with Jesus daily -- who were in a position to speak with Jesus and ask him any question pertaining not only to life and death, but the very reason and objectives of life -- the Church has embraced the pagan doctrine that these very disciples who knew Jesus the best, were heretics because they rejected the religion of the emperor, and were deemed too Jewish to understand his true teachings and nature from a Roman Pagan perspective.  The Romans were sun-worshippers -- and by replacing these crucial words spoken to man directly by God, the Church of Rome was able to totally alter the focus of the Gospel teachings of Jesus to make them support the paganism of Rome.    While this fact with respect to the corruption and suppression of the Words of God can be proven by six (6) independent early Christian witnesses and more ancient surviving biblical texts, as well as being witnessed as having been said to Jesus in both the Book of Acts, as well as attested to by Paul in the Epistle to the Hebrews, the factual evidence remains ignored by the modern Church.   

 

The TinkerBell Effect: What is called the TinkerBell Effect describes those things that exist only because people believe in them.  The belief that the earth was flat in the time-frame of Christopher Columbus, and the belief that anyone who sailed westward from Europe would fall off the face of the earth -- while widely accepted by just about the whole continent -- was an example of The TinkerBell Effect which inhibited the discovery of the New World in what has come to be called the Americas.   When the Church condemned Galileo for stating that the earth revolved around the sun, the position of the Church was based upon the desire to portray the written text of the scriptures as being literally correct -- rejecting the position of the biblical authors that the scriptures are an allegory (see An Inconvenient Truth).   What is known as The TinkerBell Effect is when you think or believe that something is true or will happen, strictly on the basis that you wish it were true or will happen.   And it is very much the Tinkerbell Effect that represents the core wishful theology of modern Christianity.   Regardless of what the Bible originally stated with the very Words of God spoken to mankind -- regardless of what the original disciples and followers of Jesus stated was true -- regardless of the facts that the historical evidence overwhelmingly reveals -- regardless of what those who have been sent in the Name of the Lord has stated to the Churches -- the very leaders in the Church have continually chosen the manmade doctrines of Pagan Rome, while rejecting what the scriptures and Jesus himself originally taught.   And this hopeful blind belief in the wishful thinking of men, is the absolute epitome of The TinkerBell Effect!!!

 

In a total rejection of Jesus' own words and the Authentic Gospel Message, while the Church continues to look for the kingdom of Never Never Land to come upon the earth, they very much remain as the lost prodigal sons who have been robbed of not only their inheritance, but the very knowledge that they must themselves return from their journey into the Far Country, by intimately embracing the teachings of TheWay that Jesus taught.     And, regardless of the overwhelming evidence to support the original Ten Words spoken by God to mankind at the baptism of Jesus, the modern Church rejects the Words of God, and embraces the paganism of the Roman Emperors who changed the words of God, and ruled over the doctrines of the Church beginning in the fourth century.   Of the takeover and rule of the Church by the Roman Emperor Constantine, Edward Gibbon writes: ”Constantine easily believed that the heretics, who presumed to dispute his opinions or to oppose his commands, were guilty of the most absurd and criminal obstinancy... Not a moment was lost in excluding the ministers and teachers of the separated congregations from any share of the rewards and immunities which the emperor had so liberally bestowed on the orthodox clergy. But as the sectaries might still exist under the cloud of royal disgrace, the conquest of the East was immediately followed by an edict which announced their total destruction”.    Constantine not only further corrupted the most corrupted versions of the scriptures (see Bible Corruption), but then ordered his armies to hunt down the true followers of Jesus, and had them murdered.   And thus, the Roman Empire was not converted to the religion of Jesus -- but rather, Jesus' teachings were corrupted to support the doctrines of Pagan Rome -- and this outlandish fraud continues right into our present time.  

 

Perhaps the best name for those who would censor and change the very Words of God, is Apostate Infidels!   And that Satan would rule over the Church, and be worshiped as God, was predicted by the Apostle Paul (see AntiChrist).   Yet, regardless of the facts, the Church has perpetually condemned those sent to tell the people the Truth -- often torturing and murdering them -- which very much makes the Church, the Church of the AntiChrist.   In the same way that the sins of their leaders was the cause of Jewish suffering, the Christians were themselves cast into a Spiritual Diaspora in the abyss of ignorance because they rejected and even condemned the words of God, and embraced the words of man.   And while the proof is detailed below, the Christian world cannot be unshackled from the ignorance that imprisons them, until they restore the Words of God, repent from their sin against the Holy Spirit, and seek the Truth and the Kingdom.

The Missing Gospel Essence

Important Knowledge For Seekers

 

 

 

 

 

   The Ebionite Nazirene Witness: As Pagans and sun worshipers, the Romans did not like the Words that God spoke directly to man in the Gospels -- and for those who are faithful enough to seek Truth over the doctrines of men, there are 10 words that were altered from their original context in the New Testament that have the power to re-establish the necessary spiritual foundational essence of the teachings of Yeshua/Jesus which was known as TheWay.   In fact, it can be said that the very Hand of God protected and preserved these Ten Words so that seekers of Truth would not be misguided and misdirected by manmade Church dogma, and possess the means to prove the Truth that they must embrace.   By using the earliest of biblical manuscripts in conjunction with six (6) separate quotations of the pre-Nicene (prior to the year 325AD) Church Fathers, it can be demonstrated that the very same scriptures that we use today, read differently prior to the adoption of Christianity as the state puppet religion of the Roman government -- ruled over first by the Emperor Constantine, and then a succession of equally pagan emperors who followed him.    Further, in the Book of Acts the disciples themselves witness as to the validity of the original Ten Words -- and these exact words are again witnessed to by Paul in the Epistle to the Hebrews.  In one of the oldest existing Bibles known as Codex Bezae, the text reads: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee".    And as demonstrated below, this is representative of the words spoken by God the Father, when Yeshua/Jesus was baptized in the Jordan.  

The Greatest Hoax And Fraud Ever Perpetuated Upon Mankind: To even suggest as the Church has done, that the very disciples who walked with Jesus daily -- talked with him daily -- the disciple who Jesus personally taught about God and both his and their relationship to the Father -- those who Jesus said were a witness to the Truth and TheWay -- that these same disciples (in the words of the later Church leaders) were too ignorant, or too Jewish, to understand what Jesus taught -- must be representative of the greatest religious frauds and deceptions known to man.    And yet, regardless of the facts, this same fraud and deception continues to be preached from the pulpits of most Churches -- spiritually disenfranchising the Christian world to this very day!!!  

Contrary to what the later deception which the Church of Rome promoted, the Gospels emphatically state that these same disciples were representative of a witness to the Truth and TheWay that Jesus taught -- and to even suggest that they were themselves too ignorant, or too Jewish to understand these teachings, is representative of the greatest religious hoax that has ever been perpetuated upon mankind.    The Book of Acts testifies to the fact that Jesus further instructed the disciples through the Holy Spirit -- i.e., "after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen" (Acts 1:2-3 NIV).   And these same disciples witnessed to the fact that "God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him" (Acts 10:38 NIV).   They portrayed Jesus as "...a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst" (Acts 2:22 NKJV).   But in the fourth century the segment of the Church who entered into a covenant relationship with the Pagan Emperor Constantine not only rejected the witness of the disciples who personally knew Jesus, that he was a man who was Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by God -- but they changed the very words of God spoken to mankind -- i.e., "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee".

What these original Ten Words spoken by the Father to mankind presented, was that the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus remained totally faithful to the Gospel teachings.   If, as the very words of God spoken to mankind stated, that Jesus became the Messiah (Anointed) and Son of God by living the necessary Consecrated Life that enabled him to fulfill the Law within himself, then the truth of the Gospel is found in the witness of the Ebionite who held firmly to the position that Jesus "...was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).   When the Ebionite Nazirenes  make reference to the Law, this very much includes the Laws of Creation as portrayed in the words "...the designs/laws found throughout Nature and all of Creation".    That the historical man Jesus was a pattern for all of mankind because of his success in overcoming the Laws, is demonstrated in the words: "He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ..."   And this confirms this statement with respect to the true potential of all of mankind that Jesus taught, as demonstrated in the words of Hippolytus when he wrote that they believed that when anyone "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs" (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34 - see http://Ebionite.com ).   And this is why Jesus taught that he was our brother -- i.e., "Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17 NIV).     

The heathen and pagan mind of the mainstream of Gentiles always had great difficulty in understanding the difference between the man Jesus, the Indwelling Logos/Son of God which is representative of the Mind of God (see The Logos), and the One Teacher which Jesus commanded all who would call themselves his disciples and followers, were to seek out and learn from (see The True Prophet).   And it was the living of the necessary Consecrated Life that Jesus ordained, and the seeking of the Kingdom within, that enabled the historical Jesus to become the Messiah, and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.   And this is especially demonstrated in the words of Edward Gibbon with respect to the original position of the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus that he was in “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366).   

The historical and spiritual factualness of these words can be proven when one understands the original words that were spoken to the man Jesus at his baptism in the Jordan River -- when the Voice of God stated: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee" -- which means that the historical man Jesus was a man who became the Messiah/Christ when he overcame the Laws and became Anointed by God.    That the later Church of Rome which existed as a puppet under the pagan sun worshipping Emperor Constantine, censored and changed the very words of God spoken to mankind, is the primary reason why the Christian world remains shackled to the abyss of spiritual ignorance to this very day.    In the below article it will be demonstrated that all the pre-Nicene Christian authors who quoted the baptism sequence in their writings, confirmed that prior to the fourth century editing of the scriptures by Pagan Rome, that the Gospels confirmed that Jesus was a holy man who became the Lord's Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling and overcoming the Laws.    Moreover, in addition to the six (6) pre-Nicene Christian authors who are cited in The Ten Words, this fact is further confirmed in the more ancient surviving biblical texts that modern translators continue to ignore to the spiritual pearl of the Christian world today.     That the modern Church continues to reject the very words of God spoken to mankind, in favor of the censored and corrupted words of the fourth century Emperor of Pagan Rome, is the reason why the modern Church which has caused itself to be spiritually flat-lined, only possesses what Paul portrayed as the "elementary" doctrines that the Church Father Origen defined as being “...preached in the Churches …for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief”  (see Origen, Contra Celsum). 

These 10 words demonstrate conclusively that the text of the New Testament has been altered in order to make it support the doctrines of the Pagan Roman/Greek world.   These 10 words further demonstrate that the essence of the teachings of Yeshua/Jesus has little in common with the Christian religion today.   In fact, these 10 words are to Christianity, what the 10 Commandments were to Judaism -- i.e., the foundation from which every other aspect of the religion springs forth!  

 

 

  The Earliest Of Christian Documents:  The fourth century Church of Constantine promoted the false doctrine that the Hebrew followers of Jesus were few in number, and ceased to exist after the fall of Jerusalem in 70A.D. -- but we know that this is not true.   Knowledgeable researches have recognized that many of the Essenes and Therapeutae became known as the Ebionites after the advent of Jesus.  The Essene-Ebionite connection is well documented in both the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Antiquity of the Jews; where the Jewish historian Josephus, who had lived among the Essenes, wrote about their way of life and how they differed from the Sadducees and Pharisees.  In The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Gibbon notes that the teachings of Jesus was “…embraced by great numbers of the Therapeutae, or Essinians…”, and wrote that: “Le Clerc (Hist. Ecclesiast p. 477, 535) seems to have collected from Eusebius, Jerome, Epiphanius, and other writers, all the principle circumstances that relate to the Nazarenes or Ebionites. The nature of their opinions soon divided them into a stricter and milder sect; and there is some reason to conjecture that the family of Jesus remained members, at least, of the latter and more moderate party”.  

Did the original followers of Jesus, which included his family, friends, and those who spoke to him daily and knew him intimately just fade into oblivion? Contrary to our present day beliefs, with regard to the 2nd and 3rd century church, it can be stated that prior to the time of Constantine, the true followers of Jesus remained very much a part of the House of Israel. Quoting Gnosticism and Early Christianity by R.M. Grant: “What do we know about Roman Christianity in Marcion’s time? Admittedly the evidence is rather poor in quantity. But most of it points toward the presence of a strongly Jewish Christianity in the Roman church... the basic concern... is with ethics, Jewish ethics… indeed the moral teaching.. is so Jewish, and so similar to that of some of the Dead Sea Scrolls, that a modern scholar has argued that… [it] cannot possibly represent the mainstream of Roman Christianity in his time. Moreover, his theology, such as it is, is thoroughly Jewish… Presumably the coming of the Spirit made Jesus become Jesus Christ.” Thus, the original Hebrew followers of Jesus which was the essence of the Christian religion, remained very much in its pure and original state as when the Lord Himself walked the earth, until the time of Constantine in the fourth century, when the true followers of Jesus were put to death by the apostate church.

In addition to the pre-Nicene Church Fathers and authorities who are quoted in this article, the earliest of Christian documents confirm that Jesus was portrayed as a man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Law within himself.   The historical personage of Jesus was a man -- just like us -- who through bringing about the necessary successive stages of birth, became At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God. And for the sake of clarity, I will quote the Introduction off my webpage on the Shepherd of Hermas (see http://nazirene.org/shepherd_of_hermas.htm#intro ) which reads:

In the introduction of the early Christian writing known as the Shepard of Hermas, it is written: “The Pastor of Hermas was one of the most popular books, if not the most popular book, in the Christian Church during the second, third, and fourth centuries..." A. D. Howell-Smith writes concerning the Shepherd of Hermas (Jesus Not a Myth, pp.120-121): "The Shepherd of Hermas, a strange allegory written sometime in the second century, had a great vogue in orthodox circles and was even included in some copies of the New Testament (it is found in the Sinaitic Codex). The theology of the Church must have been very elastic at a time when such a book could enjoy popularity and implicit, if not explicit, ecclesiastical sanction... The Shepherd speaks of a Son of God; but this Son of God is distinguished from Jesus."

Thus, it was the understanding of the early pre-Nicene Church that the man Jesus was separate from what can be portrayed as the Son of God, or Indwelling Logos. But those Christians who were too carnal to comprehend man's inner soul and spiritual reality, confused the man Jesus with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God. The Muslims did the same thing when they confused the human man Mohammed with The Prophet -- when the reference was being made to The True Prophet (see The True Prophet ) -- aka the Logos or Son of God that exists within the mind of all of us, at the very Core-Essence of our Being.
 

"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”.


That there was a difference between the man, Jesus, and the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet, is the same message that is also presented in the Didache (The Teachings Of The Twelve Apostles) where it is concluded in the Wikipedia (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Didache ): "Lord" in the Didache is reserved usually for "Lord God", while Jesus is called "the servant" of the Father..." Jesus/Yeshua was seen as a servant, because he was a man, just as you and I. In the allegory of the scriptures, Jesus, Yeshua, is representative of that vibration and condition of mind and being that connects us to the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet. Therefore, the objective of the Gospels is for you to become all that the name Yeshua embodies.

If the author of the Gospel of Luke believed that Jesus was God, he never would have written the address of Peter in the following fashion: “Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know” (Acts 2:22 NAS). Luke never would have called Jesus “a man attested to you by God”. If Jesus was God, Luke never would have written that “God performed through Him in your midst”. If Jesus was God, he would not have been called “a man” -- neither would he have been “attested” to -- and he would have performed his own works.

In like manner, if the author of Luke believed that Jesus was God, he never would have written the following address: “You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good, and healing all who were oppressed by the devil; for God was with Him” (Acts 10:38 NAS). If Jesus was God, he never would have needed to be anointed by God, and neither would it have been written that “God was with Him”. If Jesus was God, he never would have spoken the words: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised” (Luke 4:18 KJV). The Spirit of the Lord cannot come upon God, and anoint God. Further, neither could the words be spoken: “For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God; for He gives the Spirit without measure” (John 3:34 NAS). God cannot send God, and neither can God give the Spirit to God without measure.
 


 

The Infidel Church

Yeshua/Jesus Warned:

 

Jesus said: "Assuredly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they may utter; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation" (Mark 3:28-29 NKJ)
 

If you claim to believe that what Jesus stated above is the truth, and the original text of the Gospels which faithfully reproduced the Words of the Father spoken to Jesus is exactly what God wanted to say to mankind -- inspired by the Holy Spirit for men to hear -- then you have no other recourse than to conclude that the corruption of these words by the fourth century Church of Rome represents absolute blaspheme against God.    And while the original Words were changed in order to accommodate the very heathen beliefs and mindset of pagan Rome, the sin of the Church has invoked untold sufferings upon all of mankind who have been deprived of the True Gospel Message for eighteen hundred years.   Thus, the time of the Infidel Church has expired, and the foundational message and Words of God Restored -- and those seeking the Truth and the Kingdom must repent from the sins and error of the Church of this world -- i.e.,  "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel" (Mark 1:15 NKJ).   But to believe the Gospel, you must believe the words of the Father spoken to Jesus in the Jordan River -- and you must free yourself from the doctrines of the Church and Pagan Rome.
 

 

 

The Folly Of Perpetual Redemption

  What Christians today fail to realize is the fact that the original Ebionite/Nazirene followers and disciples of Yeshua/Jesus believed very differently than people today -- so different, that it can be said that modern Christians follow a different religion than that which was taught by Yeshua.   In fact, the beliefs of the original followers of Yeshua were so different, that it was said of them that they were “…rejected from one religion as apostates, and from the other as heretics” (Gibbon: Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, v.1, p.416).  

Why were they rejected by the later Roman Church?  While no one throughout Christian history has ever questioned the resurrection and the Sonship of Yeshua, what has been questioned is when the man Yeshua/Jesus became the Messiah/Christ -- or Anointed One of God -- as well as what it means to be the Anointed of God.  And while the Christian world fervently studies their Bibles, there exists ten words that so totally alters our perception and understanding of the life of Yeshua/Jesus, that every modern-day doctrine of the church would have to be radically revised in light of these ten words.   Further, once these ten words are acknowledged, the original Ebionite/Nazirene followers of Yeshua/Jesus are no longer viewed as heretics -- but rather, the true disciples of TheWay!

In the same way that the fourth century Church persecuted and murdered the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Yeshua because of these ten words that totally change every aspect of one's mindset and lifestyle, these same ten words inhibit the Christian world from making any real spiritual gains, and they cause the Church to become spiritually flat-lined.   To the degree that one Christian Bible Commentary states that if these Ten Words are True, then the present day doctrines of the Church are “vain and baseless”.

While modern Christians who believe in the doctrine of the Trinity believe that Jesus is God, this doctrine would have to be immediately rejected when the correct ten words are restored to their rightful place in the scriptures.   With regard to when these words were spoken, Christian history also tells us that these words were in fact said to Jesus at his baptism in the Jordan: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee".  The problem is that, with the exception of a footnote at the baptism of Jesus in the Revised Standard Version, these words are no longer contained in our Bibles today. What the footnote states is that many of the more ancient manuscripts read: "Today I have begotten thee", instead of "In thee I am well pleased" at Luke 3:22.   Yet, this footnote in no measure portrays all the other citations which confirm that Jesus was a man who fulfilled the Law within himself, and became the Messiah/Christ, at his baptism -- and he did this by overcoming and fulfilling the Law.   Which means that the primary goal of True Christians is to Imitate Christ -- i.e., “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it” (Matt 10:38-39 NKJ).   Therefore, unless you bring about those conditions where you lose your worldly life on what is allegorically represented by the Cross, then you cannot be a believer or follower of Messiah/Christ.

If God intended Jesus to be a one time perpetual sacrifice for the sins of man -- permitting mankind to live in a state of sin -- then it never would have been stated that "...it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).   What this means is that the religion of Jesus in its original form was one of spiritual transformation -- and those who willfully sin, crucify the Son of God afresh, and "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."  This is why Paul stated with respect to continue to living a sinful life: “But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor” (Gal 2:17-18 KJV).    Which confirms the alternate ending of the Gospel of Mark which reads:  "This Age of lawlessness and unbelieving lies under the sway of Satan, who will not allow what lies under the unclean spirits to understand the truth and power of God; therefore, they said to Christ, reveal your righteousness now. Christ answered them, The term of years for Satan's power has now expired, but other terrors are at hand. I was delivered to death on behalf of sinners, that they might return to the truth and sin no more, that they might inherit that glory of righteousness which is spiritual and imperishable in heaven" (Moffatt, quoting Gospel Of Mark in Codex W - Also quoted by St. Jerome as being the authentic ending of the Gospel of Mark).

Martin Luther who is the founder of modern faith-based Christianity, was simply unable to comprehend the basis of Paul's faith over the outward ritualization of the works of the Law of Moses, and in his frustration rejected the Epistle to the Hebrews because of many of the statements such as that which demonstrates the whole theology of modern Christianity to be counterfeit -- i.e., "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).  

What is Paul, the alleged author of the Epistle to the Hebrews, saying in these important words?   Very clearly, he warns that repentance from a life of sin is a one time thing -- reserved for those who are entry-level Christians -- because if after repenting the believer  "...sins deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."    Why?   Because a believer who willfully sins after repentance and coming to the knowledge of TheWay, is a counterfeit believer who is an "apostate... who crucifies the Son of God afresh -- holding him up to contempt."   Because Luther could not at all come to terms with what the Gospel message which Paul actually stated -- a message in total conflict with the theology which is now foundational to the modern Church -- Luther simply ordained blind belief, and condemned even the use of the mind as a discerning factor -- i.e., “Reason”, writes Luther, “is the greatest enemy that faith has; it never comes to the aid of spiritual things, but - more frequently than not - struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God” (Quoted in: The Great Thoughts; compiled by George Seldes).   Yet, even the Epistle to the Romans which Luther did accept, totally rejects his counterfeit theology where it is warned that if the Christians in any manner condemn the Jews, that their own covenant will be rejected.   “Do not be arrogant", warns Paul, "but be afraid” (Rom 11:20 NIV).   Why?   Why would the Apostle warn the Christians they should be afraid?   This is an important question for the modern believer to understand.   They should be afraid because of the violation of the covenant with God when the Gentile converts ignored the warning of the Apostle:  “For if God did not spare the natural Jewish branches, he will not spare you either… Otherwise, you also will be cut off” (Rom 11:21-22 NIV).    And the fact that the Christians failed to heed this warning of Paul, is the reason why the Church has been cut off, and the Christian world continues to dwell in a Spiritual Diaspora -- shackled by the very ignorance that they brought upon themselves.

In the dogmatic transformation of Christianity from a spiritual religion into an government ordained institutionalized puppet of Pagan Rome, much of the New Testament was edited to reflect Roman Pagan dogma, important teachings of a spiritual nature were removed, and the whole of the New Testament was corrupted (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).    In a surviving excerpt of what has been historically known as the Gospel According to the Hebrews, which was reported to be the "original version of Matthew" that was composed in the Hebrew Characters, it was written: "If ye be in my bosom and do not the will of my Father which is in heaven, out of my bosom will I cast you away".  In the late nineteenth century a library of scriptures was uncovered which is today known as the Oxyrhynchus Papyri -- wherein this verse is found reading: "Though ye be gathered together with me in my bosom, if ye do not my commandants, I will cast you forth".  This same verse of scripture is quoted in what is historically known as the 2nd Epistle of Clement, where it is written: "Let us, then, not only call Him Lord, for that will not save us. For He saith, 'Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall be saved, but he that worketh righteousness' …For this reason… the Lord hath said, 'Even though ye were gathered together to me in my very bosom, yet if ye were not to keep my commandments, I would cast you off, and say unto you, Depart from me; I know you not whence ye are, ye workers of iniquity’".   What these verses mean is that if you continue to sin after coming to Messiah/Christ, that you are an apostate to the teachings of TheWay, and "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."

Paul's doctrine of faith vs the outward rituals of the Mosaic Law, is based upon the reality that if the disciple truly follows in TheWay -- doing as Jesus states and picking up their own cross in Imitation of Messiah/Christ -- that the Kingdom that Jesus taught was within each person (see http://GateOfEden.com ), will manifest within the body-mind of the disciple.   When the Key of Knowledge is applied to the scriptures -- and they are turned within -- then the disciple becomes transformed into what is called The Final Temple (see http://TheThreeLies.com#temple ).   Thus, this brings about the promised End Times or Second Coming within the mind and body of the faithful disciple of TheWay.   That the Kingdom came within the body and mind of the disciples, is why Jesus stated “Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all things take place” (Luke 21:32 NAS).   Which confirms the words: “There are some standing here, who shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom” (Mt 16:28).

These, and other such spiritual concepts of a Kingdom that comes within the lives of those who pick up their own cross and travail in TheWay, were totally unacceptable to the heathen Church of Rome, and the scriptures were corrupted in order to make them support the doctrines of the emperor.  That the Church has abandoned the original teachings of Jesus, and have ignored the facts when it is demonstrated that the Church of Rome corrupted the very words of God spoken to man, means that until the Church itself repents of this great sin against the Holy Spirit, they will remain under a cloud of ignorance in an exile state in a Spiritual Diaspora.  

 

The Trinity

There is sufficient evidence presented in the below that should cause the sincere Christian to question the foundation of modern-day church dogma.  The doctrine of the Trinity was a long-held belief in the Gentile world, but was totally rejected by the Jews and the Old Testament scriptures.   And, from a Greco/Roman perspective, if Jesus was the latest incarnation of the (Mithrac) sun-god who was always born on December 25th, -- and that the historical record had to be rewritten in order to make the Jews the heretics, and the non-Jews the true people of God -- then the words spoken to Jesus at the Baptism in the Jordan had to be changed, and the Trinity had to be written into the New Testament in order to support the religion of the emperor and the dogma of Pagan Rome.   Yet, the case against the doctrine of the Trinity and the affirmation that Jesus was the adopted Son of God, is easily demonstrated.   Once this fact is realized, it could then be said that we would have better odds playing Russian roulette, than holding steadfast to modern day church doctrine.

Under the heading of A Trinity Statute, The Encyclopedia Britannica says: "Neither the word Trinity, nor the explicit doctrine as such, appears in the New Testament, nor did Jesus and his followers intend to contradict the Shema in the Old Testament: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord’ (Deut. 6:4). . . . The doctrine developed gradually over several centuries and through many controversies. . . . By the end of the 4th century . . . the doctrine of the Trinity took substantially the form it has maintained ever since" (1976, Micropedia, Vol. X, p. 126).

How did the fourth century Church change the very Words spoken directly by God to all of mankind, and promote the doctrine of the Trinity?   In the words of Gibbon in the Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire: ”Constantine easily believed that the heretics, who presumed to dispute his opinions or to oppose his commands, were guilty of the most absurd and criminal obstinancy... Not a moment was lost in excluding the ministers and teachers of the separated congregations from any share of the rewards and immunities which the emperor had so liberally bestowed on the orthodox clergy. But as the sectaries might still exist under the cloud of royal disgrace, the conquest of the East was immediately followed by an edict which announced their total destruction”.   The heretics who the army of Constantine hunted down and murdered, were those faithful believers who refused to accept the religion of the emperor.   Thus, the Christian world continues to embrace the doctrines and religion of the emperor, because they continue to reject the very Words of God, and have permitted themselves to become spiritually disenfranchised by the doctrines of men.

The New Catholic Encyclopedia states: "The formulation ‘one God in three Persons’ was not solidly established, certainly not fully assimilated into Christian life and its profession of faith, prior to the end of the 4th century. But it is precisely this formulation that has first claim to the title the Trinitarian dogma. Among the Apostolic Fathers, there had been nothing even remotely approaching such a mentality or perspective" (1967, Vol. XIV, p. 299).   What it means in the words that "...among the Apostolic Fathers, there had been nothing even remotely approaching such a mentality or perspective", is because the concept of Jesus as God did not exist among the Apostles.  

In The Encyclopedia Americana we read: "Christianity derived from Judaism and Judaism was strictly Unitarian [believing that God is one person]. The road which led from Jerusalem to Nicea was scarcely a straight one. Fourth century Trinitarianism did not reflect accurately early Christian teaching regarding the nature of God; it was, on the contrary, a deviation from this teaching" (1956, Vol. XXVII, p. 294L).

According to the Nouveau Dictionnaire Universel, "The Platonic trinity, itself merely a rearrangement of older trinities dating back to earlier peoples, appears to be the rational philosophic trinity of attributes that gave birth to the three hypostases or divine persons taught by the Christian churches. . . . This Greek philosopher’s [Plato, fourth century B.C.E.] conception of the divine trinity . . . can be found in all the ancient [pagan] religions" (Paris, 1865-1870, edited by M. Lachâtre, Vol. 2, p. 1467).

In his Dictionary of the Bible, John L. McKenzie, S.J., writes that: "The trinity of persons within the unity of nature is defined in terms of ‘person’ and ‘nature’ which are G[ree]k philosophical terms; actually the terms do not appear in the Bible. The trinitarian definitions arose as the result of long controversies in which these terms and others such as ‘essence’ and ‘substance’ were erroneously applied to God by some theologians" (New York, 1965, p. 899).

The answer is clearly written in the very beginning of the Revelation where it is stated: "The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him..." (Rev 1:1 NIV).

Most Christians who are unaware of the corruption of the New Testament by the fourth century Church of Constantine (see Corruption ), will immediately ask why these verses which represent the very Words of God to mankind were altered?  The truth and the facts to the matter is very clearly expressed in the words of Prof. Bart D. Ehrman in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, where he warns us that: "...theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy" -- which orthodoxy was to bring the text of the Bible into conformity with the doctrines and tenets of the Church of the Roman Emperor Constantine.   In the words of Prof. Elaine Pagles, in her book, The Gnostic Gospels:  It is the winners who write history - their way.   No wonder, then, that the viewpoint of the successful majority has dominated all traditional accounts of the origin of Christianity… It suggests that these religious debates - questions of the nature of God, or of Christ - simultaneously bear social and political implications that are crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion.  In simplest terms, ideas which bear implications contrary to that development come to be labeled as heresy; ideas which implicitly support it become orthodox”.   

In order to be acceptable to the secular authorities of 4th century Rome, the religion known today as Christianity had to be imbued with certain elements that made it compatible with both the government, as well as the thinking of the people.    And if we pose the question as to who were the people?  The only possible answer is that the great masses of converts to the Church of Rome were Pagan and idol worshiping heathens who prayed to statues, every sort of manmade and natural object, as well as the sun, moon and stars -- and they looked upon these things as their god!   But to their pagan mindset, the god of all gods, was in fact the sun -- and the sun which is reborn every December 25th, periodically becomes manifest among men when the sun-god once again incarnates into the world in the form of man.   Therefore, they reasoned that the Mithraic sun-god was born among the Jews in order to condemn them, and then be re-established among the Gentiles (non-Jews) as their Christ -- which they had always proclaimed.  

  Christ Before Jesus: In the Gentile world prior to the time of Jesus, the word Christos or Christian was used in reference to an enlightened initiate in the Greek Mystery Religions -- which was basically Mithraic.  In many instances, those men who authored the Epistles that came to bear the name of Paul, were drawn from Mithraic (Christian) Initiates.   Thus, what came to be called Christianity existed before the time of Jesus -- as demonstrated at this link ( http://nazirene.org/unfaithful2.htm ).   Quoting the foregoing link:  Today we call ourselves by the Greek word Christian -- but have we ever questioned where the term originated? And what does it mean?  The New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge confirms that the name "originated outside of Christian and Jewish circles".  The Mercer Dictionary of the Bible states that: "By the late first and early second centuries the name ‘Christian,’ which early believers avoided using of themselves, was beginning to be accepted".   Why?   Because of the direct influence of the Mithraic initiates who called themselves Christian.   But in the theological conflict between the Jews and Gentiles, the Mithrac clergy adopted the Gospels -- corrupted them to make them support the tenets of this Greek Mystery religious system -- and portrayed the original disciples of TheWay as heretics who were too Jewish to understand the teachings of Jesus.  Then they created what has been called Replacement Theology -- which parallels that of Islam in many ways -- which states that Jesus was born among the Jews to condemn them, and then took his rightful place as the leader of the Christians (enlightened Mithrac initiates) -- which, according to their dogmatic mindset, meant that the Gentile Church was always the true Church.  Again, quoting the above link:  With regard to the historical people who were called the people of Christ before the time of Jesus, it did not mean anything to an enlightened Christian that the masses of people worshiped the sun, moon, stars or idols.  What is now Christmas is the rebirth of the sun-god -- and what is now Easter was the worship of the moon goddess Ishtar and the resurrection of the sun-god (see Easter vs Passover).  

That the initiates of the ancient mystery religions were called Christians prior to the time of Jesus is demonstrated in a letter from the Emperor Adrian to Servianus, written in 134 A.D., wherein it is stated: "Egypt, which you commended to me, my dearest Servianus, I have found to be wholly fickle and inconsistent, and continually wafted about by every breath of fame. The worshipers of Serapis are called Christians, and those who are devoted to the god Serapis, call themselves Bishops of Christ".   What is confirmed is that, with the advent of Jesus, the Christ or Christos was not a new term, and there were people throughout the empire who were called Christians prior to the time when the name came to be associated with the followers of Jesus.   More important, though, is the fact that they brought their ideas and beliefs pertaining to the Mithraic Christ into the religion of Jesus -- which teachings in their original form possessed an essence and spiritual reality that few of these Pagan Christians could perceive.  Therefore, it wasn't that the original disciples were too Jewish to understand the teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- but rather, that a whole segment of the Gentile Church was too pagan and heathen to understand the teachings and objectives of the Gospels.  

Archaeologists have demonstrated that the word Christos, which we render Christ, has been found not only on Pagan temples, and used in relation to those who were said to be the sons of the Pagan gods, but the term was also engraved on tombstones and other Pagan artifacts prior to the time of Jesus.  In the Greek and Roman mystery religions of the time, the Christos was the Anointing of the Logos, and the Christian was the follower of the Anointed.  In the writings of Clement of Alexandria we find it explained that: "Those who lived according to the Logos were really Christians, though they have been thought to be atheists; as Socrates and Heraclitus were among the Greeks, and such as resembled them" (Strom. bk. i, ch xix).   Eusebius, the great historian of the early Church, admits that the religion that is called Christianity was known to the ancients (Eccl. Hist., 1, ch iv) and writes that the religion of Jesus had "...been known among all nations, nevertheless our life and our conduct, with our doctrines of religion, have not been lately invented by us, but from the first creation of man, so to speak, have been established by the natural understanding of divinely favored men of old... What then should prevent the confession that we who are of Christ practice one and the same mode of life and have one and the same religion as those divinely favored men of old? Whence it is evident that the perfect religion committed to us by the teaching of Christ is not new and strange, but, if the truth must be spoken, it is the first and the true religion".

Modern Christians who erroneously believe that what is today called Christianity started with Jesus, will be unable to relate to the words that "our doctrines of religion... have been established by the natural understanding... and [is] the same religion as those divinely favored men of old".  The early Gentile Christians knew this fact, and it was for this reason that a copy of Plato’s Republic and other such writings was contained among the writings preserved in the recently discovered Nag Hammadi Library of early Christian writings.   St. Augustine wrote: "That, in our times, is the Christian religion, which to know and follow is the most sure and certain health, called according to that name, but not according to the thing itself, of which it is the name; for the thing itself which is now called the Christian religion, really was known to the ancients, nor was wanting at any time from the beginning of the human race, until the time when Christ came in the flesh, from whence the true religion, which had previously existed, began to be called Christian; and this in our days is the Christian religion, not as having been wanting in former times, but as having in later times received this name" (Opera Augustini, vol. i, p.12).   What this means is that the Jesus in the existing Gospels was converted by the Church to support the tenets of Mithraism, which was the universal religion of the empire.  The problem is that the original teachings of TheWay had absolutely nothing in common with what came to be called Christianity under Pagan Rome.

Those teachings in the scriptures that supported the original objectives of  "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” (see Key Of Knowledge - Heightening And Expansion Of Mind) were removed by the scribes of that segment of the Church which called itself Orthodox -- and the verses of the scriptures which supported the original spiritual objectives, were then portrayed and condemned as Gnostic interpolations.   Resulting in the reality that the modern congregation of believers have been spiritually disenfranchised by the dogmatic dispensations that became ingrained in the doctrines of the Church -- which dogmatic dispensations was necessary in the creation of a secularized religion where the "...political implications ...[were] crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion"  (see Pagles, The Gnostic Gospels).   That modern Christianity is faith-based, is the result of being deprived of the most important spiritual teachings and concepts which was removed from the tradition of scriptures which they received through the hands of the Church of Rome.   And that their doctrines of belief are openly condemned and rejected as spiritual apostasy by the original New Testament authors as demonstrated in the 10 Minute Test of The Lie, remains incomprehensible to the disenfranchised congregation of believers today.    In the same way that educational dropouts can't perform and function at the level envisioned in the creation of our system of schools and universities, neither can the spiritual dropouts even begin to perform and function at the level envisioned in the Gospels.   For their own worldly desire for mammon and political power, the charlatan priests moved the goal-posts of the original Gospel objectives, and peddled spurious dispensations that seduced the congregation of believers to imagine that they could dropout of the process at an elementary school level, and achieve the degree that is equal to that of a university graduate.   And in the same way that in Mao Tse-tung's Cultural Revolution he turned upon and executed the intellectual leaders who voiced opposition once he didn't need them anymore, so too did the Orthodox priests turn upon the spiritual core of the Church, once they achieved their desired positions of political power within the Church of Pagan Rome.

So in the conversion of Rome, everything that supported the Jewish roots and foundation of Jesus' teachings had to be suppressed and even condemned -- so much so, that Dead Sea Scroll expert A. Powell Davies professed: “Biblical scholars”, he writes, "were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).   What Davies was referring to was the fact that the Church of Constantine so altered the focus of the Gospel teachings of the New Covenant, that what we call Christianity today has its doctrinal legacy of birth in the fourth century, and has little in common with the religion that the Son of God revealed to man at the beginning of our Common Era.  

In the words of Brian McLaren as quoted in an interview with Lisa Ann Cockrel which was published in Today's Christian Woman (see Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right), Brian McLaren is quoted as stating: "One of the problems is that the average Christian in the average church who listens to the average Christian broadcasting has such an oversimplified understanding of both the Bible and of church history - it would be deeply disturbing for them to really learn about church history."   And herein lies the heart of the problem: If Fundamentalist Christians were to admit that the text of the New Testament had been altered, then they could no longer proclaim with any certainty what Jesus actually taught, and what Christians should believe!   

Thus, the Christian world has perpetually closed their eyes to their own biblical scholars such as Dr. Vincent Taylor who writes in his book, The Text of the New Testament, that "The manuscripts of the New Testament preserve traces of two kinds of dogmatic alterations: those which involve the elimination or alteration of what was regarded as doctrinally unacceptable or inconvenient, and those which introduce into the Scriptures proof for a favorite theological tenet or practice".   Why?   Because one of the dogmatic alterations that was a long-standing theological tenet of the Pagan world was introduce into the Scriptures and remains to this very day as the foundation of modern Church doctrine.  

In his book, Introduction to the New Testament, B.W. Bacon wrote: "The Christian can only mitigate the disrespect he feels for plagiarists and impostors by the reflection that the conscience of the second century had practically no recognition for those literary crimes, rampant as they then were in the Church" (p. 168). Yet it is the product of these "literary crimes" that believers put their faith in when they read their Bibles today!

In his Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament, by Dr. F. H. Scrivener, he writes that: "In the second century we have seen too many instances of attempts to tamper with the text of Scripture, some merely injudicious, others positively dishonest".   Scrivener states that "it is no less true to fact than paradoxical in sound, that the worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected, originated within 100 years after it was composed: and that Irenaeus and the African Fathers, and the whole Western, with a portion of the Syrian Church" used inferior manuscripts.

   The Great Lie  

  The Gentile Church Witness: When did Yeshua/Jesus become the Messiah/Christ?   Modern Christians proclaim that Jesus was God -- but this was not what was believed by those who knew and learned from him.   And while modern believers ignore this fact, the proof is overwhelming!  In the early Christian writing known as THE INSTRUCTOR, a second century work by Clement of Alexandria, it is written: "For at the moment of the Lord's baptism there sounded a voice from heaven, as a testimony to the Beloved, 'Thou art My beloved Son, to-day have I begotten Thee’".  In the words of Methodtus (A.D. 260-312), in his works THE BANQUET OF THE TEN VIRGINS; OR, CONCERNING CHASTITY, he writes: "Now, in perfect agreement and correspondence with what has been said, seems to be this which was spoken by the Father from above to Christ when He came to be baptized in the water of the Jordan, 'Thou art my son: this day have I begotten thee’". In the words of Lactantius (A.D. 260-330.), in his THE DIVINE INSTITUTES, he writes: "Then a voice from heaven was heard: 'Thou art my Son, today have I begotten Thee'. Which voice is found to have been foretold by David. And the Spirit of God descended upon Him, formed after the appearance of a white dove. From that time He began to perform the greatest miracles, not by magical tricks, which display nothing true and substantial, but by heavenly strength and power, which were foretold even long ago by the prophets who announced Him; which works are so many, that a single book is not sufficient to comprise them all"

The Old Testament prediction made reference to in the above quotation by Lactantius is found at Ps 2:7 which reads: "I will declare the decree: the Lord has said to me, 'You are My Son, today I have begotten You'" (NKJ).  And what few Christians today realize is that most ancient copies of the New Testament scriptures does in fact confirm the prophesy that these words were indeed spoken at his baptism when the Father said of Jesus:  "Thou art My beloved Son, to-day have I begotten Thee"Moreover, these words which were spoken to Jesus are actually confirmed at two other places in the New Testament.  At the very beginning of Paul's Epistle to the Hebrews (1:5) we find the statement with respect to what was spoken to Jesus: “For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son.   Contrary to the Apostle's conclusions upon which the Epistle to the Hebrews is founded, because this statement which was reportedly spoken from heaven was altered by the later church, nowhere in our present day translations are these words said to Jesus.   Yet, there is a parallel account in Acts that speaks of the disciples of Jesus being adopted by God in the same manner as Jesus himself was adopted as the very first of the prodigal sons to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination: “God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee” (Acts 13:33 KJV).   In the Acts of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul (234 A.D.), it says: “Him therefore to whom the Father said, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten Thee, the chief priests through envy crucified.” .“ Ante-Nicene Fathers/Volume VIII/Apocrypha of the New Testament/Acts of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul/Acts of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul,” (see Wikisource)

In a writing by Justin (died 165 A.D.) known as the Dialogue of Justin with Tryphon, A Jew, in chapter LXXXVIII, Justin writes about Jesus, clearly referencing the Gospels’ baptism accounts: "He was in the habit of working as a carpenter when among men, making ploughs and yokes; by which He taught the symbols of righteousness and an active life; but then the Holy Ghost, and for man’s sake, as I formerly stated, lighted on Him in the form of a dove, and there came at the same instant from the heavens a voice, which was uttered also by David when he spoke, personating Christ, what the Father would say to Him: ‘Thou art My Son: this day have I begottenThee.’" (Justin, Trypho)   Justin then goes on to explain to Trypho the Jew-- once more obviously quoting the original form of Matthew 3:17 and Luke 3:22: "For this devil, when [Jesus] went up from the river Jordan, at the time when the voice spake to Him, “Thou art my Son: this day have I begotten Thee,” is recorded in the memoirs of the apostles to have come to Him and tempted Him, even so far as to say to Him, “Worship me;” and Christ answered him, “Get thee behind me, Satan: thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.” (Id., ch. CII.)   Others who found the same passage in Matthew are Juvencus, Evangeliorum Libri Quattor, I 360-64 and Hilary, De Trinitate, VIII, 25, Tyconius, Reg. 1

In the Hebrew Matthew, there are two variants to the baptismal account which are different from the Greek text tradition.  The first adds "today I have begotten thee."  After saying many things, this Gospel continues: “After the people were baptized, Jesus also came and was baptized by John. And as Jesus came up from the water, Heaven was opened, and He saw the Holy Spirit descend in the form of a dove and enter into Him. And a voice from Heaven said, ‘You are my beloved Son; with You I am well pleased.’ And again, ‘Today I have begotten You.’ “Immediately a great light shone around the place; and John, seeing it, said to Him, ‘Who are you, Lord? And again a voice from Heaven said, ‘This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.’ Then John, falling down before Him, said, ‘I beseech You, Lord, baptize me!’ But He forbade him saying, ‘Let it be so; for thus it is fitting that all things be fulfilled.’” (Epiphanius, Panarion 30.13.7) [see Wikipedia - Authentic Gospel Of Matthew]
Further, “this day I have begotten thee” appears in the following Greek of Matthew: D (Greek) and the Old Latin. (E.B. Nicholson, The Gospel according to the Hebrews (1879) at 40.) Also, in "Codex Bezae and most of the old Latin manuscripts...the voice instead cites Psalm 2:7: 'This day I have begotten thee." (Barbara Aland, Joël Delobel, New Testament textual criticism, exegesis, and early church history (Peeters, 1994) at 120.)   Throckmorton in Gospel Parallels (1992) explains that this variant (“this day I have begotten thee”) exists in some of the oldest versions of Luke such as P4, meaning Paris Papyrus, “third century” (id., x, xviii, 14); S, meaning Sinaiticus, “middle fourth century” (id., xiv, 14); A B, Codex Alexandrinus, “5th century” and Codex Vaticanus, “4th Century” (id., x, 14), and W Manuscript (5th century).

 

Faustus vs Augustine: The phrase ‘this day I have begotten thee’ was quoted by Faustus ca. 400 AD from both Matthew and Luke’s Gospel as having been uttered at Jesus’ baptism. Faustus was unorthodox in his view that Jesus, the Son of David, was not born Son of God but became Son of God at his baptism.   This position of Faustus which was of course the same as the Ebionite Nazirenes and the Original Gospel accounts, was rejected by the dogma of the Emperor Constantine's Church that Jesus was the 'eternal' Son of God -- which doctrine was embraced at Nicea in 325 AD.   In opposing Faustus, Augustine's objective was to alter Jesus to match Constantine's favored deity - Sol Invictus. See our "Council of Nicea".)   Augustine in his point-by-point rebuttal, does not dispute  how Luke read -- he disputes only how Matthew then read after it was rewritten.  We find this Faustus-Augustine exchange in Schaff’s Augustin: The Writings Against the Manicheans and Against the Donatists, in Book XXIII (1890) at 313. Schaff recounts Faustus’ points about the Matthew passage when read in light of Luke: Faustus recurs to the genealogical difficulty and insists that even according to Matthew Jesus was not Son of God until His baptism. Augustine sets forth the Catholic view of the relation of the divine and the human in the person of Christ. [quoting Faustus directly] I will, for the present, suppose that this person was right in saying that the son of David was born of Mary. It still remains true, that in this whole passage of the generation no mention is made of the Son of God till we come to the baptism; so that it is an injurious misrepresentation on your part to speak of this writer as making the Son of God the inmate of a womb. The writer, indeed, seems to cry out against such an idea, and in the very title of his book to clear himself of such blasphemy, asserting that the person whose birth he describes is the son of David, not the Son of God. And if you attend to the writer’s meaning [i.e., Matthew's meaning] and purpose, you will see that what he wishes us to believe of Jesus the Son of God is not so much that He was born of Mary, as that He became the Son of God by baptism at the river Jordan. He [i.e., Matthew] tells us that the person of whom he spoke at the outset as the son of David was baptized by John, and became the Son of God on this particular occasion, when about thirty years old, according to Luke, when also the voice was heard saying to Him, “Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten Thee.”  Schaff provides Augustine’s complete reply. Id., at 318 et seq. Augustine disputes only how Matthew read but not how Luke read. However, he quotes Matthew back at Faustus: “when He was baptized by John, a voice from heaven, saying, ‘This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.’” Augustine says these words do not “imply that He was not the Son of God before.” Id., at 315. Augustine ignores the quote from Luke which made Faustus’ case. (For further discussion of this portion of Faustus, see Barbara Aland, Joël Delobel, New Testament textual criticism, exegesis, and early church history (Peeters, 1994) at 121.)   Based on Epiphanius and Jerome's account of the Hebrew Matthew, it must have been altered instead of Luke. Only after Augustine did not want to cope with Faustus's argument any longer, Catholic authorities also erased the Luke 3:22 version as well.

While Augustine attempted to argue his point using the corrupted copies of Matthew, it is easily proven that the older Matthew manuscripts read exactly the same as Luke -- i.e., “this day I have begotten thee” appears in the following Greek of Matthew: D (Greek) and the Old Latin. (E.B. Nicholson, The Gospel according to the Hebrews (1879) at 40.) Also, in "Codex Bezae and most of the old Latin manuscripts...the voice instead cites Psalm 2:7: 'This day I have begotten thee." (Barbara Aland, Joël Delobel, New Testament textual criticism, exegesis, and early church history (Peeters, 1994) at 120.)

   The Spiritual Consequences: Were these the actual words which were spoken to Jesus?  If they were, what are the religious and spiritual implications for the modern Christian in search of a more intimate relationship with the Lord?  This very serious doctrinal problem is raised in the Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary where it is written: “[Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.] Augustine, with some moderns, apply this to Christ's external generations from the Father. `The expression (says Alexander) 'I have begotten thee' means, I am thy Father: 'Today' refers to the date of the decree itself: but this, as a divine act, was eternal, and so must be the Sonship it affirms. This, however, is a forced way of interpreting the words, and not at all consistent with the context, which clearly connects the Sonship with the resurrection of Christ. Does the apostle, then; mean to say that Christ became God's Son -- for the first time and in the only sense in which He was the Son of God -- by His resurrection from the dead? That cannot be; for, besides that it would contradict the whole, strain of the New Testament regarding Christ's relation to the Father” (Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary).   

The problem is seen in the fact that the Bible means exactly what is says: Jesus became the Son of God -- initially, by the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) of the Holy Spirit at his baptism -- and permanently, with his resurrection. In fact, because they believed what Jesus himself taught them -- i.e., that Jesus was a man who had so fulfilled the Law of God within himself, and had so purified and consecrated himself that he became One with God -- the original (Jewish Ebionite/Nazirene) followers of Jesus were condemned as heretics by the later Gentile Church.  Thus, the second century writer Irenaeus states that they: “represented Jesus as having not been born of a virgin, but as being the son of Joseph and Mary according to the ordinary course of human generation, while he nevertheless was more righteous, prudent, and wise than other men. Moreover, after his baptism, Christ descended upon him in the form of a dove from the Supreme Ruler, and that then he proclaimed the unknown Father, and performed miracles” (Irenaeus, Bk 1, Ch 26, doctrines of Cerinthus).

From a biblical perspective, there is nothing in the Old Testament that even remotely implies or predicts that the Eternal God will come in the form of man.   The prediction was that God would raise up a prophet from among the Jews, like Moses, as seen where it is written: “The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own brothers. You must listen to him” (Deut 18:15 NIV).   When Peter spoke before the Jews, he stated that this prediction applied to Jesus -- and in so doing, himself called Jesus a prophet: “Moses said, ‘The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet from your brethren as he raised me up. You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you... This is the Moses who said to the Israelites, ‘God will raise up for you a prophet from your brethren as he raised me up’” (Acts 3:22;7:37 RSV).

Perhaps more importantly is the fact that Jesus referred to himself as a prophet, as seen in the words: “But Jesus said to them, ‘A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house’” (Matt 13:57 RSV).   When conversing about his crucifixion, Jesus again spoke of himself as a prophet, as seen where it is written: “Yes, today, tomorrow, and the next day I must proceed on my way. For it wouldn’t do for a prophet of God to be killed except in Jerusalem!” (Luke 13:33 NLT).   Thus, Jesus told his disciples and followers that he was a prophet.

In Jesus’ prayer to the Father prior to his crucifixion it is written: “And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt” (Matt 26:39 KJV).   If Jesus was God, and the Father and the Son were not separate and distinct individuals, such a prayer would have been meaningless.   In these many such instances where Jesus prays to God -- or the Father -- if they were one and the same, Jesus would have been praying to himself -- and his will, would of necessity have been the Father’s will.  Moreover, neither could God call his disciples his brothers, and make the statement: “Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God’” (John 20:17 NIV).

What Jesus taught his disciples was that he and the Father were One -- but this same Oneness was also applied to his disciples, as seen in the words: “That they may all be one; even as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be in Us; that the world may believe that Thou didst send Me. And the glory which Thou hast given Me I have given to them; that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, that the world may know that Thou didst send Me, and didst love them, even as Thou didst love Me” (John 17:21-23 NAS).   The problem is that we cannot even begin to understand the essence and meaning of this spiritual concept, until we are first able to comprehend our own divided nature -- the reality of our pre-existent soul -- and our vision has been opened to where we are able to see beyond the natural barriers of this world.   What Jesus is saying, though, is that in the same way that he and the Father are One, they too are One.

If Jesus was God -- or even coequal with God as in the foundation of the doctrine of the Trinity -- Jesus could never have said to his disciples:You heard me say, I am going away and I am coming back to you. If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. I will not speak with you much longer, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold on me, but the world must learn that I love the Father and that I do exactly what my Father has commanded me” (John 14:28-31 NIV).   How could a coequal God say that God was greater than he was?   Moreover, if they were one and the same personage, how could Jesus say that he must do “exactly what my Father has commanded me”.

It is a widely accepted doctrine among Christians today that the disciples and Messianic followers did not comprehend the true nature of Jesus, because they did not proclaim that he was God -- as did the later Gentile converts.   What Jesus taught his disciples with regard to who he was, is exactly what was stated by Peter after he was totally enlightened by the Holy Spirit: “Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know” (Acts 2:22 NIV).   Where did Peter get the notion that Jesus was a man -- a man "accredited by God" -- a man that God performed miracles, wonders and signs through?   Didn’t Jesus himself say that “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself...” (John 5:19 NAS);   “The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works” (John 14:10 NKJ); “I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me” (John 5:30 NKJ); “...I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me. The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him” (John 8:28-29 NIV); “for the works which the Father has given Me to finish -- the very works that I do -- bear witness of Me, that the Father has sent Me” (John 5:36 NKJ); “I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word. Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You” (John 17:6-7 NKJ).  

How could God give God works to finish?   How could God know nothing except what God taught him?   Moreover, why would God -- a Being that cannot be defiled -- consecrate himself as seen in the words: “They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; thy word is truth. As thou didst send me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated in truth” (John 17:16-19 RSV).

Are these just words -- or did Jesus truly mean that his disciples were not of this world?   When Jesus states that he is At-One with God, does that mean that he is God?   And when Jesus states that his disciples are at-one with both him and God, does that make them God?   These are questions which the Apostle warns that the mind of man in his natural state is incapable of answering – incapable, until they have themselves attained this same level of oneness which is portrayed as the ultimate goal of the disciple who walks in TheWay.  

In view of what Jesus taught his disciples and followers, again let us review the direct witness of the Apostle Peter as found in the Clementine Holily number sixteen, Chapter fifteen, where he opposed Simon Magus and states: “Our Lord neither asserted that there were gods except the Creator of all, nor did He proclaim Himself to be God...”.  

It is a well recorded fact of history that the disciples of Jesus, his brother Jacob/James, and the Messianic Jewish believers who were his friends, brothers and followers, did not believe that Jesus was God.   Those people who spoke to him -- ate with him -- traveled with him -- and were taught by him -- and was even his brother -- believed exactly as it is written in the scriptures: “But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men” (Matt 9:8 KJV).

Fundamentally, every person who was taught directly by Jesus held a common belief which was documented by Edward Gibbon of a “supernatural union of a man and a God; and this mystic doctrine was adopted with many fanciful improvements by Carpocrates, Basilides, and Valentine... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366).

This belief -- that “the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry”, is simply not understood by the carnal mind of natural organic man -- as is very clearly stated in the Bible itself.   We can only start to comprehend this belief that was held commonly by ALL the faithful believers who were taught directly by Jesus himself, as well as those who were closest to him in the first century, when we begin to apply what the Apostle Paul put forth in the first chapter of Romans, and explore the belief in relation to our own entrance into this world.

The Missing Gospel Essence

 

In an early Christian gospel called the ACTS OF THE HOLY APOSTLES PETER AND PAUL, it is written: “Him therefore to whom the Father said, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten Thee, the chief priests through envy crucified”.   In Origen's Commentary on the Gospel of John, Origen writes that: “None of these testimonies, however, sets forth distinctly the Savior's exalted birth; but when the words are addressed to Him, 'Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten Thee', this is spoken to Him by God”.   Unless Origen was somehow commenting on the wrong gospel, this verse was completely removed from our present-day versions of John.   In view of this fact, modern believers should seriously ask the question as to what else was removed from John.  

If it is true that the birth narrative was removed from the beginning of the Gospel of John, and the present chapter that utilizes the term Logos, which only appears in the writings of Plato and Greek Mythology was added in its place, then this fact would shed great light on the statement made by Prof. Allegro in the August 1966 issue of Harpers Magazine where he is quoted as saying: “The very scholars who should be most capable of working on the documents and interpreting them have displayed a not altogether surprising, but nonetheless curious, reluctance to go to the heart of their matter.   The scholars appear to have held back from making discoveries which, there is evidence to believe, may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church.   This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers.   The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine”.  

In view of the fact that there are numerous sightings by the earliest of Christian writers that God said to Jesus at his baptism: “Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten Thee”, and not one word is spoken to support the phrase in our bibles which reads “In thee I am well pleased”.   It is therefore easy to see that this verse was altered by the later Church of the Roman Empire to support their doctrines of belief -- beliefs which inhibit Christians today from fulfilling the original Gospel objectives which process brought about the entering of the Kingdom that Jesus taught was within each and every one of us.  

In our churches today faithful Christians incessantly beseech God to open their minds to a higher understanding of His Truth.   This is good -- and the Lord has placed great knowledge in their hands that was not available to previous generations of believers.   Yet, it is a useless endeavor, though, to pray for this Truth -- to petition the Lord to grant you the privilege of gazing upon the Mysteries of God that Jesus said only a very few chosen people who were worthy of even the opportunity of seeing: “For I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it” (Matt 13:17 NIV) -- while holding fast to the doctrines of men.   The key word here is worthy!   Are you worthy to see and understand what has been concealed from the eyes and ears of “many prophets and righteous men?   Worthiness is judged by your willingness to use what God has placed into your hands, magnify it a hundredfold, and manifest it as Truth and Light in the world.   Worthiness is demonstrated in your desire to surrender to Truth -- and then manifest this Truth as Light in your Life.   In this respect, I have overwhelmingly demonstrated that Jesus became the adopted Son of God when, at his baptism, the Father said these words to him: “Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten Thee”.

Again, let us revisit the reasoning of The Adam Clark Commentary with regard to the passage at Hebrews 1:5: “This most important use of this saying has passed unnoticed by almost every Christian writer which I have seen; and yet it lies here at the foundation of all the apostle's proofs. If Jesus was not thus the Son of God, the whole Christian system is vain and baseless: but his resurrection demonstrates him to have been the Son of God; therefore everything built on this foundation is more durable than the foundations of heaven, and as inexpugnable as the throne of the eternal King”.  

Are you truly a Christian?   Do you truly want to know the truth?   If you pray and desire God to reveal the Sacred Mysteries of Creation to you, and you hunger with a passion to embrace the Gospel in its fullness, then you cannot ignore this great stumbling block that has the capacity to inhibit every aspect of your genuine walk with the Lord.   If the foundation of not only your perception of the Bible, but also life itself is based upon a “vain and baseless” vision of both the very nature and destiny of mankind, and you are searching for the answers to life under a great cloud of misconception, then regardless of your effort, your results will not only be limited, but can never rise to any height because of the weight of the great obstacle that you are attempting to carry with you.

When Jesus warned that “The Way”, is straight and narrow, what he cautioned his followers was that we cannot attempt to carry the great weight of the doctrines of this world along with us in our walk with the Lord.   In the writings of the fifth century monk John Cassian, he often quotes the scriptures as he explored the idea of who is even worthy of being given the opportunity of Walking in The Way in the Imitation of Christ: “Wherefore, as Scripture says, 'when you go forth to serve the Lord stand in the fear of the Lord, and prepare your mind' not for repose or carelessness or delights, but for temptations and troubles. For 'through much tribulation we must enter into the kingdom of God.' For 'strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be which find it.' Consider therefore that you belong to the few and elect; and do not grow cold after the examples of the lukewarmness of many: but live as the few, that with the few you may be worthy of a place in the kingdom of God: for 'many are called, but few chosen', and it is a 'little flock to which it is the Father's good pleasure to give' an inheritance. You should therefore realize that it is no light sin for one who has made profession of perfection to follow after what is imperfect” (Church Fathers, Nicene & Post-Nicene, Vol. 11, Page 467).

With great spiritual insight John Cassian wrote that it is “no light sin” for you to profess your allegiance to Christ -- and to Christ alone -- and yet, cling to, and follow after, the doctrines of carnal men.   The religious concept that was formalized by Plato, and later grafted into the religion of Christ in the doctrine of the Trinity, and edited into the very pages of the Bible itself by the alteration of the original words that the Father spoke at the time of the baptism of Jesus, is an anchor that the believer attaches to himself when he attempts to walk in The Way.   Why?   Because this doctrine is the foundation of an entirely different (carnal ) mindset than what was taught by the Lord himself -- and it is this (spiritual) mindset that the Lord made reference to as the “good ground” within which the seed of the Word must be planted in order to mature and multiply by a hundred fold. 

The importance is demonstrated in the Lord's teaching of what is elementary and fundamental in order to even begin to be called a Christian.   In the parable of the Sower and the Seed (Mt 13:1-23; Mk 4:1-34; Lk 8:4-15), it is this ground -- or mindset attached to a consecrated lifestyle -- that is the key factor that determines the effectiveness of the Word.   Anyone who toils in the earth in the endeavor to bring forth a mature and developed plant, knows that the conditions of the earth within which the seed is planted is what makes the difference in the eventual results.  

In view of the fact that you are the ground upon which the Sacred Word is implanted, the results of the harvest will be directly proportionate to your ability to become molded into the necessary spiritual environment that is required to bring forth a manifestation of the Living Word.   If the soil conditions are rocky with the fossilized, petrified and solidified doctrines of men -- or the materialistic thorns of this world -- then the harvest that you seek -- the harvest of spiritual fruit that is magnified a hundred times -- can never come to pass.

In these great truths that were revealed in the parables that Jesus taught to the multitudes of mankind, we must understand all that is being said to us, and comprehend that the revelation made in these teachings demonstrated stages of growth that transported the disciple from the realms of this world, into the full unveiling of the Kingdom.   Unlike modern church doctrine, where one either joins up, or professes their allegiance to the Lord, with the result being that one is instantly saved and converted into a full-fledged Christian, what the Lord taught was that there was a process -- a process that must be fully embraced -- in order to transcend this world and emerge at the Kingdom side of where following in The Way transports the genuine disciple.

When Jesus spoke of the believer as the soil -- and the condition of the soil was paramount to the eventual manifestation of the Word -- what Jesus was stating was that the good ground can be defined as a certain state of mind -- or mindset -- of the believer.   In grasping the full dimensions of what Jesus taught, we must see the parable through the eyes of one who himself toils in the earth.   If we did not know what a mature field of wheat looked like, and have never seen a carefully cultured agricultural plantation that has been groomed and made ready for the harvest, it would be difficult to envision the final results prior to the time that the field was cultivated and prepared for the planting of the seed.

There is an often told story of the preacher from the city who visited his brother in the country.   As the preacher came upon a farm where the crops were growing in fine orderly rows for as far as the eye could see, the preacher leaned over the fence and said to the farmer: Isn't the wonders of God glorious to see and behold.   And with that, the farmer scratched his head, and thought for a moment as he gazed out upon the field, and said to the preacher: You should have seen this place when God had it all by himself.  

God provided the potential for that wondrous field.   But before it evolved into its present condition, it was the farmer who labored to clear it of the trees and stumps, weeds and rubble, ploughed it, fertilized it, manicured it, and transformed it from a wilderness, to a place that provided food and nourishment for man.   Now the wise man knows that God not only provided the potential, but also the very elements and seeds that the farmer used to transform the once rocky and overgrown field.   In this little story we must understand that there are two paramount truths at work here -- i.e., that success is achieved when man and God move together to subdue and perfect the potential of this reality.   In this respect, the opinion that either God, or man, separately accomplished the final result, is each in error -- and this merging of the two realities is one of the founding principles upon which New Covenant teachings are based.

If the farmer did not have faith, he never would have begun the process of cultivating the wild wildness that was placed in his hands.   And in the same way that James opposes Paul in the statement: “For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead” (James 2:26 NAS).   In the same way that the farmer proves his faith by the work he does to transform the field, it is the work of the disciple in his endeavor to fulfill God's Commandments that grows the Word a hundred times more than what the Lord originally bestowed upon him.

In the parable of the Sower and the Seed, the transformation of the disciple of the Light is understood in much the same fashion.   In the same way that the farmer did not create either the field, the seed, nor the sun and rain and organic matter that produced the great crop, it was the labor of the farmer that was a necessary ingredient in order to bring about the transformation.   This same exact balance is present throughout the teachings of Jesus -- and especially the parable of the Sower and the Seed.

God supplied the Word -- and His Laws and Spiritual forces can be invoked to bring about the transformation that is envisioned throughout the scriptures -- but the necessary ingredient is seen in the fact that it is man that must create the necessary environment within his own mind and being that Jesus refers to as the good ground, that permits the Word to first grow, mature, and multiply what was originally given in the form of fruit manifest in the life of the disciple.  

Each of us has the potential to become part of the transformational process that God has ordained -- a process that was referred to by a group of mystical Jews as the New Covenant, and which process was more clearly refined by Jesus in the teachings and concepts of what came to be called The Way.   But the problem is that we are again presented with another great paradox -- in that, all these things exist in potential, and it is man that must fulfill the Commandments of the Word in order to make himself the finely cultivated field which Jesus referred to as the good ground within which the Word of God must be planted in order to bring about the transformation.

In the parables and teachings of Jesus, the potential of man to embrace the Mysteries of God is only limited by one thing -- i.e., the mindset of the person who first hears the Word, and then works to assist God in bringing about the Divine Vision of God for Mankind in his Life.   Jesus came to speak to mankind about the Truth -- but this Truth can only be realized by the mature spiritual mind -- and this state of spiritual maturity can never be manifest without man's willingness to act upon the Truth that was given.  

What modern believers today do not realize is that the Words of the Father to Jesus at the baptism is one of those essential concepts that is absolutely necessary in order for the disciple to first become the good ground, and then provide the fertile environment, in order to be a coworker with God in bringing about the transformation and vision of the New Covenant teachings and reality.   In contradistinction to the teachings of Jesus, it is indigenous to the Pagan mindset to worship the elemental objects of this world.   When the pattern of spiritual transformation in the form of the New Covenant scriptures was placed in the hands of the Pagan Gentiles, they did as they were accustomed to doing -- i.e., they made Jesus a god, and worshiped him in the manner of their other gods.

When the disciples of Constantine altered the scriptures to say: “in thee I am well pleased”, instead of “today I have begotten thee; this, and many other such scriptural revisions, altered the very mindset and thinking of the Christian faith.   From a New Covenant perspective, each and every person is seen as the offspring of the One God, and it is their innate ability to open a direct channel of communication to the One Source of Knowledge and Being.   With the Paganization of the gospel, the mindset of the flock of believers was changed from that of a sovereign and free Divinely ordained people, to that of subjects in a monarchy type of governing reality.   It is understandable that this change is absolutely necessary in the creation of a secularized church, a hierarchy of government ordained priests, that can only be founded upon a fixed dogmatically based doctrine.   In later chapters I will revisit and add to the many reasons of why the gospel message had to be converted from a spiritual to a secular institutionalized format, in order to make it acceptable from a government perspective -- but at this point it is important to understand the very change in mindset that was accomplished in order to create an institutionalized church that embraced a secular Pagan mindset -- and convert it from the bedrock of a very Gnostic, Jewish mystical church that existed in spiritual dimensions that are of a parallel reality that Jesus referred to as the Kingdom -- and not of this world.

Very briefly, one of the essential and paramount differences can be seen in the mindset of an English born child vs a child who is raised in the United States.   Unlike the proverbial saying of American mothers, an English born child of common origin is never taught that they too can grow up and become the king or queen of England.   The common child is not born of the royal family, and can never become the king or queen.   Thus, we are presented with a subject type of mindset that is common to any of the worlds monarchies.  

Because of today’s modern Christian mindset that was imposed upon the church by Constantine and the Imperial Roman Government, Christian children today are not taught that they, too, can grow up to become the Son of God.   In accordance with our modern doctrine, the best we can achieve is to become subjects in good standing in the divine government and monarchy of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.   The result is that we view God with a slave, subject, and ghetto mentality that inhibits and nullifies our walk with the Lord.   Like the people of England who are not born of royal bloodlines, and can never themselves become king or queen, their role is limited to the praise and support the royal family.   Because the alteration of the scriptures to accommodate the government of Pagan Rome has brought about this same mindset, our religious experience never evolves past praising, supplicating, and making ourselves good subjects of the heavenly royal family.   From a spiritual perspective, our modern mindset that we inherited from the Church of the Roman Empire is natural to a secularized, institutionalized, Pagan form of religion -- and is not only detrimental, but is a life-inhibiting poison to a spiritual religion such as the teachings of The Way and the New Covenant.

In this example we can also perceive the true reason why the so-called orthodox church objected to the Gnostic foundation of the original teachings of the New Covenant.   What the Gnostic professes is that each one of us is the offspring of the Royal Family of the Eternal God.   We do not need a royal family of priests and clergy in this world, because each of us has a direct inner connection to God.   As a member of God's Royal Family, all we need to do is make ourselves the good ground, and the seed of the Word that is already planted in our hearts and minds will grow and mature into Spiritual Fruit.   This great Spiritual Truth is not arbitrary -- it is controlled by the indigenous Laws of Creation within which everything moves.   Once properly understood, the personal spiritual evolution of man is as predictable as the sun that rises and sets each day.   In this respect, the Truths that Jesus revealed to mankind were not of a philosophical nature -- but rather, was guaranteed.

Since we are comparing the difference in the mindset of a monarchy vs a democratic republic, what I will demonstrate in later chapters is that the foundation of the government of the United States was not only a declaration of Spiritual-Gnostic Christian concepts, but can be used to demonstrate the differences between the church of this world (England), and the True Gnostic Church of the Spirit.   The foundational principle of the government of the United States is that every person is imbued with God-given rights -- and the purpose of government is to secure and protect these inherent rights.   On the other hand, the government in England at the time of the revolution was a religiously based monarchy -- the king was literally declared to be the vicar of God, and the people were his subjects that he ruled over.   All communication with God came through the king, the royal family, and the appointed rulers.   That this type of mindset is detrimental to the spiritual growth of the people, is the very reason that religious men and women traveled to the new world in order to serve God, and not the false religion of the king.   The problem that we are confronted with is again demonstrated in the reasoning of The Adam Clark Commentary with regard to the passage at Hebrews 1:5, which was at one time the words spoken by the Father to Jesus at his baptism: “This most important use of this saying has passed unnoticed by almost every Christian writer which I have seen; and yet it lies here at the foundation of all the apostle's proofs. If Jesus was not thus the Son of God, the whole Christian system is vain and baseless: but his resurrection demonstrates him to have been the Son of God; therefore everything built on this foundation is more durable than the foundations of heaven, and as inexpugnable as the throne of the eternal King”.  

If Jesus is the pattern for all of mankind, then the crucial question that makes all the difference in the life of the believer and disciple, is an understanding of when Jesus become the Son of God.   If the original translations of the Bible are correct, and Jesus became the Son of God at his baptism, then our whole vision of the New Covenant must be re-evaluated from a spiritual, rather than a carnal perspective.   In this respect, the missing ingredient to our thinking is the process that was invoked by Jesus in order to attain to the exalted position of him being adoption as the first Son of God -- the “forerunner” (Heb 6:20) in whose footsteps we must follow -- because he became “the first-born among many brethren” (Rom 8:29) -- Jesus, our brother, who is born from the same Father and God (Jn 20:17; Mt. 12:50).  

Thus, we cannot even begin to perceive the scriptures in their original spiritual reality -- grasping how Jesus came to be different than us -- when we are spiritually inhibited by our present-day mindset.   In this respect, we cannot conceive of how Jesus could speak of himself at Luke 13:32 as being in the process of achieving perfection: “…and the third day I shall be perfected” (KJV).  

We again see this same thought in the Epistle to the Hebrews, a writing that Luther rejected because it not only contained verses that placed all mankind on a somewhat even keel with Jesus, but it again spoke of the perfection of Jesus in order for him to be made the captain of salvation for his brothers, as seen in the words: “For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings” (Heb 2:10 KJV).

When Christians were again permitted to view the scriptures, which was a crime punishable by death in accordance with the law of the Roman Church for over a thousand years, Middle Age reformers such as Luther realized that the doctrine that Jesus was God, unbegotten, and always existed in a perfect state of being, simply could not coexist with biblical statements such as those at Hebrews 5:9-10, where the Apostle wrote about Jesus: “And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec” (KJV).   How could God, through his sufferings, become perfect?   How could God be called an high priest, after the manner of the high priests of the Jews?   How could God be compared to the historical figure of Melchisedec, who was said to be the king of Salem?

Taking a broader look at the quotation in the second chapter of Hebrews, Jesus is not presented as God, but rather the brother of all of us: “In bringing many sons to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the author of their salvation perfect through suffering. Both the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers. He says, 'I will declare your name to my brothers; in the presence of the congregation I will sing your praises’” (NIV).

At Hebrews 6:19-20, Jesus is presented to the reader as a forerunner -- a forerunner who became perfected, and this perfection has permitted him to enter behind the curtain of the inner shrine -- which inner shrine is the Kingdom within us that Jesus declared we can only enter with a total change of mind: “We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner shrine behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest for ever after the order of Melchiz'edek” (Heb 2:10-12 RSV).   God, as envisioned in accordance with the doctrine of the Trinity, can neither be a forerunner, because a forerunner is one who is the same who goes first -- ahead of the rest.   Neither could God ever be called a high priest.   What the Apostle Paul is speaking of with regard to Jesus, is a perfected man -- because these words are terms that can only be used regarding a created being of the same substance as we are.

These verses which present Jesus as the forerunner who, through his struggles and sufferings became perfected -- and by virtue of his holiness, became the forerunner and pattern by which all men are to follow, was Ordained the first Son of God.   It must then be comprehended that these terms can only be understood when the correct words -- the words quoted by the disciple Peter as having been said to Jesus -- the words quoted by the Apostle Paul as having been said to Jesus -- the words which were predicted in the Book of Psalms -- the words which were confirmed throughout the writings of the first and second century Christian authors as having been said to Jesus at his baptism, are restored to their rightful place when the Spirit came upon Jesus as a dove, and the voice of the Heavenly Father said to Jesus at the baptism: “Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee”.   Open your copy of the Revised Standard Version of the Bible to Luke 3:22, and read the footnote in order to see what the correct words are in all the most ancient of manuscripts.

What this means is that if Jesus is the pattern that all of us must follow, then relying upon faith apart from deeds and accomplishments -- or words of praise and adoration as one would appease a god, will be meaningless without picking up one's cross and bearing the burden of the Christ while one is still in the body in this present life.   What these words mean is that we must live our lives in a manner that would anticipate the Anointing (Christ) of the Light, and cause our Father-God to say these same exact words about us -- i.e., “Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee”.

Admittedly, these biblical and historical facts can only begin to make sense when we perceive the reality of our pre-existent soul, and the foundation of New Covenant teachings with regard to the Kingdom coming within the mind and being of the disciple.   In two important recent Christian archeological discoveries known as the Oxyrhynchus Papyri and the Gospel of Thomas, there is an important teaching that Jesus conveyed to those who asked him about the coming of the Kingdom: “When the Lord was asked by a certain man, when should his kingdom come, he said unto him, when two shall be one and the without as the within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female”.   That this is an authentic saying of the Lord which was at one time in our scriptures is affirmed by St. Clement, the disciple of Peter, in his The Second Epistle of Clement’ where he writes: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.   This same verse is again repeated in other works attributed to the same author.

In our search for the essence of Christian teachings, this important concept must stand at the very forefront with respect to its urgency in the life of the modern believer.   If it is our goal to overcome (Rev 3:12), and enter the Kingdom (Rev 22:14), then we would want to know when it would come, and what we have to do in order to enter therein.   What this teaching about the Kingdom conveys to us is that we can only enter into Life when we have accomplished specific goals that Jesus spoke about to the people.

In our quest to understand these great spiritual truths that Jesus spoke of, we must ask the question as to why an important teaching such as this would be offensive to the Roman Church, and be edited out of our Bible?   The problem is that the great truth which is revealed in these words -- words that are of the utmost importance to the disciple -- fails to support the doctrine that the kingdom of God will come upon the earth as is believed by a secular institutionalized church.   What these verses of scripture that were removed from our Bibles confirm, is what Jesus clearly taught at Luke 17:21, that the Kingdom is within us.   Thus, because the priests of the Roman Church could not control the religious thought of a body of believers in search of the inner Church, and the inner Kingdom, these very Gnostic and Spiritual concepts had to be rejected by the Church of Constantine.  

From the perspective of the church which called itself orthodox: What Jesus truly taught was too Gnostic, and undermines the establishment of a secularly based institutionalized church.   What these spiritual concepts declare is that the coming of the kingdom is not an event which will take place in the physical world -- so as to be seen (Lk 17:20) -- but rather, within ourselves.   The kingdom will come when we make the two within us into one -- the person we are without (in the world) the same as the Divine Person we are within -- and when we have eliminated -- by merging into oneness -- the feminine and masculine polarities within us.   In the words of Jesus: Only when we have accomplished these things within and without ourselves, can the Kingdom come.

The genuine Christian doctrine is easy to confirm.   Jesus never ordained a class of priests whose job it was to perform rituals and prayers on behalf of the people.   The religious principles that Jesus taught were purely spiritual -- i.e., his disciples were to go forth and proclaim to the people that if they changed their direction, and walked in The Way, they could enter into the Kingdom of God, and be saved from the fate of death that this world holds.   The disciples and apostles were not to teach, as our religious authorities teach today -- but rather, they were to lead the people to the One Teacher -- the True Prophet -- that is the only Genuine Source of Knowledge for the disciple of the Light.

In addition to the scriptures where Jesus commands the disciples not to be called teacher, for there is only One Teacher (Mt 23:8), this same Truth can be demonstrated using the first century witness known as the Recognitions of Clement, where St. Clement quotes the teachings of the Apostle Peter.   In chapter 59, under the heading of The True Prophet, Clement writes: “But I would not have you think, that in saying this I take away the power of judging concerning things; but I give counsel that no one walk through devious places, and rush into errors without end. 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”.

What does Peter say to us in these words? That the True Prophet “is within the mind of every one of us”.   This concept is Spiritual -- and is the foundation of the Living Church that the Lord inaugurated.   Jesus warned his followers not to go to a teacher or religious authority in this world -- even when that teacher or authority says that he knows the Christ.   What is very clear in these words which are parallel and in harmony with the Bible, is the followers of Jesus were not to learn from men -- who themselves do not know -- and in true Spiritual-Gnostic fashion, they were only to go to the Source of all Knowledge, the True Prophet.  

The Apostle Paul wrote that the baptized believers at Corinth did not know the Gospel of God, and could not be taught the Mysteries and true Christian teachings because they were too carnal to receive them.   This great dilemma that Paul wrote about -- and has been continually ignored by the majority of Christians throughout history -- was explained by Peter when his disciple Clement wrote his warning to believers: “…and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other”.  

From a first century Christian perspective, there is only one way that you can learn and know the truth, and that is through your own dormant spiritual nature.   “Expect not that you shall learn anything”, says Peter, if you attempt to learn from the doctrines of men -- even when these men are the leaders of your church, synagogue, mosque, or temple.   Why?   Because Jesus himself commanded: “But you, do not be called 'Rabbi'; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren” (Matt 23:8 NKJ).   Therefore, whoever will teach you -- except by example and the manifestation of the Light in their own lives -- from the perspective of the New Covenant, is a disciple of the anti-christ.

Peter embodies the very essence of the genuine teachings of The Way in the words: “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”.

In this statement you will find the dividing line between the genuine Christian and the Christian of the flesh -- i.e., the genuine Christians are those who are willing to embrace the Light, and learn only from the True Prophet which they manifest in their lives by only doing what is of the Light -- whereas, the Christians of the flesh calls upon the name of the Lord, but they adhere to the teachings of men, and live in accordance with the culture of this world.   Once these words of Peter are realized in the life of the believer, only then is it comprehended that it is the desire for the Truth -- and the Truth alone -- that will turn you in the direction of The Way.   It is this desire that must rule your hearts and minds in such an all encompassing manner, that the believer rejoices in the labors of clearing the rubble of this world out of our lives, and strives to make themselves the good ground that is the only consecrated environment which the Lord will recognize as being genuine.   In this respect, the True Prophet can only be found by those who cultivate and prepare themselves -- physically, mentally and spiritually, for the coming of the Lord.  

From a New Covenant perspective as set forth in the parable of the sower and the seed, you already have the Word planted in the essence of your heart and mind.   Throughout the parables, the Word is spoken of as being male, and the disciple as female.   What this means is that one only has to apply a practical knowledge to the equation in order to understand the process that is taught in the parable of the sower and the seed.   In the same way that a woman attracts a man to her, the disciple attracts the manifestation of the Word into his life by preparing the environment of his mind and body in the endeavor to make it the good ground.   In the same way that a man is seeking an attractive woman in which to place his seed, the Word is seeking an attractive environment in this world in which to manifest the Light.  

All the confusion and conflict of religious doctrine that is present in the world today can be attributed to one dominant cause -- i.e., for the believer to prepare themselves does not mean that the True Prophet can be found by those who search for him holding firm to the doctrines of men, or the lifestyle and culture of this world -- but rather, one must prepare themselves to make their life so it will be in conformity with the Will of God.   Peter warns that those who do not become disciples of the Light, and fail to cleanse themselves from the defilements of this world, the True Prophet remains “inoperative” -- they cannot see him, hear him, or even conceive of his existence, even though he dwells in the spiritual kingdom within each and every one of us.    The True Prophet can only be revealed to those who truly desire the knowledge of God, and reject everything else.   But what is the knowledge of God?   The knowledge of God is Truth and Light, and can be possessed only by those who are prepared to move beyond this world of carnal opinion and dogma.

In chapter 62, Clement then goes on in his quotation of the Apostle's teachings: “And, therefore, since amongst these philosophers are things uncertain, we must come to the true Prophet. Him God the Father wished to be loved by all, and accordingly He has been pleased wholly to extinguish those opinions which have originated with men, and in regard to which there is nothing like certainty - that He the true Prophet might be the more sought after, and that He whom they had obscured should show to men the way of truth. For on this account also God made the world, and by Him the world is filled; whence also He is everywhere near to them who seek Him, though He be sought in the remotest ends of the earth. But if any one seek Him not purely, nor holily, nor faithfully, He is indeed within him, because He is everywhere, and is found within the minds of all men; but, as we have said before, He is dormant to the unbelieving, and is held to be absent from those by whom His existence is not believed”.

The importance of this statement to the people of the simple faith is the very essence of the New Covenant promise!   What Clement is stating is that you -- you the reader of this book -- regardless of who you are, or your present station in this life -- has the ability to find the True Prophet and know the Truth -- but, so long as we continue to cling to the doctrines of men, and the philosophy and materialism of this world, the True Prophet will remain dormant as to an unbeliever.   A believer in Christ, then, cannot be defined as someone who believes in the manner of their choosing -- in what is culturally correct -- or in the doctrines of their church -- but rather, genuine belief in Christ means that the person believes that if they incorporate the teachings of Christ in their life -- and then live them in word, thought and deed -- that they will begin the process of opening the inner door to the Kingdom and learn directly from the True Prophet.

What we must therefore recognize is the fact that, many who call upon the name of the Lord are in reality unbelievers, because they attempt to call upon the Lord while holding fast to the doctrines of Constantine, Justinian, Darwin, and a whole host of other prophets and servants of the anti-christ.   It is in reference to these false teachers and their flocks that the Lord spoke of when he said: “These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me” (Matt 15:8 NKJ).   Why?   It is because the doors to the Kingdom are only opened with the desires of the purified heart, and not with the lips.   What you say means little -- but what you do and accomplish with your life is of paramount importance in the eyes of the Lord.

If one truly loves the Lord, then they will rid themselves of all falseness, and cling only to the Truth.   Whoever is therefore not willing to surrender to the truth, are the unrighteous people that the Apostle speaks about: “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Th 2:10-12 KJV).

What the Apostle is here stating is that only those who rid themselves of the baggage of this world, and truly walk in The Way, will perceive the reality of Life -- all others, regardless of how well-meaning they are, regardless of how they praise the Lord with their lips, will be given a “strong delusion”.   In our analysis of this great truth it is important for us to comprehend the flaw that the authors of the scriptures saw in the people of the Nations -- i.e., they called upon the name of the Lord, but they lived their lives in accordance with their culture -- and thus, they denied God their actions and deeds.

In recognition of this often repeated biblical fact, we must pose the question: Was the King James Bible written by God, or is this a “strong delusion”?   Was Jesus God, in accordance with the doctrines of Constantine, or is this just another “strong delusion”?   Does man have a pre-existent soul in the manner of the parable of the prodigal son, or is the present modern-day church doctrine that opposes this biblical teaching a “strong delusion” that is based upon the philosophy of the Emperor Justinian, and his disciple Darwin?   Did God abandon His Laws, and permit the Gentile followers of Jesus to be sanctified, even though they often dwell in enmity against the very foundation of spiritual precepts that the Lord spoke, or is this again a “strong delusion”.   Is what you believe the Truth, or is it just another “strong delusion”?  

It is congenitally inherent in man to defend his position and cling to the idea that he is on the winning side.   It is a part of his genetic makeup.   Yet, what the Bible clearly warns the reader is to beware of the reality of the prince of darkness -- and to understand that all but a very few will dwell under the “strong delusion” of this world.   One of the great seductions that has been continually employed to lead the people of faith astray, has been the idea that one can merely believe, and does not have to live in strict conformity with the precepts of the Word.  

If, then, you desire to see clearly, and know the difference between “strong delusion” and the Truth, then the Bible states that there is only one safeguard -- which safeguard is to come to Christ, and Christ alone.   The first century disciples of Christ who knew the Lord when he physically walked this earth, uniformly proclaim that you must seek the Truth only from the Hand of God -- as revealed through personal interaction with the True Prophet -- and reject all others.   We no longer possess this foundational message because it is Gnostic, and embraces the path of Mysticism -- which in essence is the manifestation of man's Spiritual Nature.

In much the same way as in the first century, we live today in a world of confusion.   There are many philosophers and men we consider authorities -- religious and secular -- who preach and teach many things that conflict with the Truth.   They teach in schools and educational institutions -- in our vast media -- they speak and preach their doctrines using every modality conceivable -- they open their arms and say: I know the truth -- come and listen, and I will teach you.   The great truth which the Bible continually warns you of, is that if you follow the doctrines of these men, you will walk upon the broadway that leads to darkness and despair.

Regardless of what version of the Bible you choose, a very clear alert to all readers is seen in the warning that we dwell in a world of confusion -- i.e., that it is impossible for us to know the truth by virtue of our own very limited carnal wisdom, and we need a much wider scope of vision and understanding in order to comprehend the reality of Life and Creation.   What the Bible conveys to all who open its pages for guidance, is that we need Divine guidance and assistance if we are to know what is right and wrong -- and ultimately, the Truth.   Let us therefore embrace the wisdom of the Light, take the words of Clement and Peter to heart, and seek this guidance from the only True Source of Knowledge, God's True Prophet.   This is the promise of the New Covenant: That whosoever should seek the Lord with a holy and pure life, the True Prophet will be found dwelling within the very spiritual depths of the disciple's own heart and mind.   The acquisition of Truth, then, is not a matter of belief and faith in unproven philosophy that sounds good to our carnal ears and understanding -- but rather, the process of overcoming our own disconnection from the Source of all Knowledge that lies within us.

 

 

 

The Essence of TheWay

Yeshua/Jesus did not come to promote belief in the Messiah/Christ - neither did he come to promote the worship of Messiah/Christ - Yeshua/Jesus came to teach the people TheWay to become Messiah/Christ, and fulfill the vision of a Kingdom of Priests and a Holy Nation of Anointed (Messiah/Christ) Disciples who are set aside for the service of the Most High God that Yeshua taught was the Father of all of mankind. The path of TheWay could not be walked by many Jews because they were carnal in their perception of the Law (Torah), and could not use the Key of Knowledge to open the inner door to the Kingdom.  In like manner, the majority of the Roman and Greek followers who were too Pagan to embrace the teachings of Yeshua, were not interested in a life of genuine change and spiritual transformation, so they made Jesus their God so they didn't have to pick up their own cross and follow in TheWay. Thus, the Church itself betrayed and crucified Messiah/Christ when it immersed itself in the way of the heathen, and worshiped the messenger instead of imitating the pattern and example that Yeshua set as the required standard for all those who called upon the name of the Lord. The Good News is that once you understand and are willing to live in accordance with the Original teachings of the New Covenant, the Promise is that you will Know the Truth for yourself as you are permitted entrance into the Kingdom within you (Lk 17:20-21).

The Lie Of Judaism: That Yeshua/Jesus was not the Messiah!

The Lie Of Christianity: That Yeshua/Jesus was God Incarnate!

The Lie Of Islam: That Yeshua/Jesus Said Another Was Yet To Come

Using Modern Quantum Physics,

The Original Gospel Message Is Proven To All Of Mankind

The inner spiritual core of Judaism totally believes in Yeshua and his teachings -- and they see him as having ushered in a New Messianic Age of the Final Temple which is Spiritual and Living.   The conflict between the three religions, as well as world peace, cannot be achieved because of The Three Lies.   That the spiritual core of Judaism believes that the historical Yeshua as a Messiah -- and ushered in the Final Temple -- cannot be acknowledged because of the paganism of Christianity and the idolatry of the Church in the worship of Jesus as God in accord with the doctrines of the Emperor Constantine.   Moreover, this same idolatry not only was instrumental in the creation of Islam, but is the very reason why Muslims view Christians as worshiping a false god.    Yet, because Islam itself has become corrupted, the flaw that each sees in the other, is as the beam that is blinding the vision of each of the three.   Click the above The Three Lies graphic to access the article and learn the Truth for yourself.

A Confrontation With A Long Ignored Reality - While scholars and believers alike hold almost countless opinions as to the meaning of the scriptures, to their own detriment they overlook the most important part of the equation -- i.e., the scriptures are exactly what the original authors intended them to be.   It is an ever-looming and grave fact that, because both believers and critic alike all fail to understand the nature of the scriptures from the vision of the original authors, the scriptures remain a perpetual enigma to nearly all who open them.   The bottom line is this: That it makes little difference as to what YOU believe the nature of the scriptures are, if you fail to understand the sacred writings from the same perception and understanding as the original authors who composed them.   Thus, before you can even begin to understand the true meaning of the scriptures, you must first come to understand the original objectives of the authors.   And in this respect, a few facts to consider is that the scriptures were written by Mystics who possessed a Knowledge that the biblical authors portrayed as incomprehensible to the congregation of believers -- whose higher vision of what they portrayed as Essential Truths, was outlawed as heresy -- which forced them to use a special CODE which they portrayed as the Key of Knowledge, which permitted them to both preserve and conceal their Spiritual Truths from the eyes and understanding of the ordinary reader and believer -- who would condemn and reject the Great Truths that were preserved beneath the cloak of the text of the written word which Paul portrayed as "the letter that killeth".  

From the perspective of a long ignored reality, there are a number of important points that each person must come to terms with:  (1) In the first place, the scriptures are not historical narratives -- and when understood within their original context, they possess virtually little to no historical value whatsoever.   And in view of the fact that nearly everyone who opens the scriptures all equally throw away the Key of Knowledge, they all remain blind to the true meaning.   (2) Secondly, the scriptures are composed by mystics who would be deemed heretics if they spoke openly about what they knew and witnessed as truth -- and even then, most of these very same mystics have been perpetually hunted down and murdered.  (3) The authors of the scriptures were Gnostics -- and the true meaning of the word Gnosis (see Gnosis) which was declared to be heresy by the Church of Rome, is the Divine Manna or Knowledge of the Kingdom which can only be revealed directly from God to those who could receive it.   Therefore, the primary objective of the scriptures is to conceal and preserve esoteric truths for fellow sincere seekers both in the present, and even more importantly in the future.  (4) The objective of Mysticism is to circumvent the very limited knowledge of this world, and position themselves to receive Gnosis (Spiritual Knowledge) directly from God -- and all true mystics and Gnostics must understand the evolution of the soul over the course of many lifetimes.    While it is true that we were all Created equal -- it is also an undeniable fact that in the case of man, equal is not the same -- and each of us is the product of our past experiences that have developed us since the very dawn of Creation itself.   What this means is that the mystic authors write what man calls scriptures, so that when their souls return to this world, the sacred writings will be preserved for them to renew and restore their spirituality, so they can continue their soul-journey from where they left off in the previous cycle of physical life.  (5) This last primary requirement means that they must compose the body of the scriptures in such a way, that the carnal people of this world whose thinking, mindset and lifestyle remain under the control of what Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of this world (The Far Country), will unknowingly preserve the sacred writings.   Thus, out of necessity, the Gnostic/Mystic uses the blind ignorance of the common people who remain entangled in the "outer darkness" (see Outer Darkness), to act as a (drug) mule or unwitting carrier -- and this preservation of a body of secret esoteric knowledge is necessary because the Citizen of the Far Country (aka the god of this world) would induce the people under his control to destroy and/or corrupt the scriptures.  (6) It is therefore important to recognize that the biblical authors were correct in their assertion that the people of this world who remain under the dominion of the Citizen of the Far County, cannot understand the higher reality of the soul and what Jesus portrayed as the (esoteric) knowledge of the Kingdom of God -- which Paul openly states they will reject as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery Of The Gospel).   (7) In view of the fact that the carnal people -- even those who are baptized and committed believers -- can't utilize the esoteric knowledge -- this inability to understand along with the threat of annihilation because of the charge of heresy, forces the authors of the scriptures to act in a way not at all understood by the congregation of believers.   In the example of Paul who references himself as an ambassador in bonds who cannot speak about what he knows openly -- openly warning the congregation of believers that he had himself taught, that if he did in fact speak to them openly about the Spiritual Gospel, they would reject what he said as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery Of The Gospel).    Further, Paul explains that because it was declared from On High to be "unlawful" to reveal to the faith-based believers the Spiritual Gospel of Christ and the Mysteries of the Kingdom (see Gnostic Spiritual Dilemma), there are two doctrines -- i.e., one for the immature congregation of believers who are incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom -- and the other which can only be spiritually received directly from the Mind of God (Logos/Son Of God/True Prophet).

This Day, God Has Granted You The Means

And TheWay

To Find The Truth And The Kingdom

 

Yeshua/Jesus had great compassion on the common people, because they were being led in the wrong direction by their religious leaders -- and they were being exploited by the secular elite.   Thus, each person reading this web site is confronted with the warning: "He who does not remember history is condemned to repeat it" (Georges Santayana).   This web site is for you, the common people who have been victimized, exploited and led in the wrong direction by both your religious and secular leaders and cultural icons.   When Yeshua sent his disciples forth to tell the people that the Kingdom was at hand, and it could be accessed by those who “Open and unloose the mind" (see Gate Of Eden), his disciples were not only sent forth in that time frame, but also across the span of time -- into the future -- in order to guide other prodigal sons and daughters who were striving to escape the clutches of self-serving religious leaders who are wolves in sheep's clothing, and secular leaders who serve the god of this world.  Our Heavenly Father has not in any measure abandoned his prodigal sons and daughters -- and quite the opposite, it is man who continues to cling to manmade doctrines, a cultural mindset, and the traditions of this world.    While the teachings of Yeshua/Jesus are true, it is the doctrines of the Church that lead men astray into lives of spiritual complacency.   And if you begin to truly understand the timeless message of the Gospels, you will come to know that most religious leaders are merely Pharisees by another name, and most cultural and secular leaders are very much as the Romans.   Nothing has changed on the stage of life -- the players merely use different names in order to fool you.    

The purpose of this web site, then, is to free you who are the prodigal sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, from the shackles of the counterfeit leaders who imprison you in this, the "far country... outer darkness."   And this lifesaver which has been divinely extended to you, can keep you from drowning in the sea of dark ignorance that pervades the thinking of the lost sheep -- and is the same lifesaver that Yeshua/Jesus provided for those who were wise enough to escape the shackles of the Pharisees and Romans at the beginning of our Common Era.   "The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come" (Matt 22:2-3 KJV).   As the prodigal sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, TheCall has been made to each of you to return to the Kingdom which you once departed from, before venturing into this world which Yeshua portrayed as "the far country".   And TheCall is not to come to a Church, Synagogue, Mosque or Temple of this world -- but rather, to return to the Kingdom which you can enter by travailing in the "narrow way" that Yeshua taught (see Gate Of Eden).  Because if you don't hear TheCall, and come to the voice of the Shepherd of the flock while you are still alive in the physical body, you will not be able to enter the Kingdom when you pass from this life.   And while you will not perish and cease to exist, you will not go to Glory as the some believe, or reincarnate as others believe -- but you will have squandered away an opportunity that may not so readily be available to you in the future.

The Nazirene HomePage: The original spiritual teachings of Yeshua/Jesus as practiced by the people of The Way who where known historically as the Essenes, Ebionites, and Nazirenes. The teachings of The Way are Spiritual -- and provide a means to open the "strait gate" into the Kingdom while still physically alive in the body/vessel.  
 

Divine Manna Of The Kingdom And The Gospel Of Thomas: The 114 sayings of the Gospel of Thomas is the Key to entering the Kingdom Within. To know their meaning, you must first explore and Know Thyself.   Thus, the sayings are themselves a catalyst for spiritual transformation.   One of the most important statements within the sayings is that "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world".   And the finding of self is the primary objective of all scriptures.   And when we add to this the statement from the Gospel of Philip that "Those who say that first they shall die and (then) they shall arise are confused. If they do not first receive the resurrection (while) they live,¹ they will not receive anything (when) they die" -- we can begin to understand that the doctrines of the simple faith that Paul called the "milk" of the Gospel of Christ, is truly elementary and only the beginning of entry-level teachings of TheWay.   Which means that one of the primary objectives of Jesus' teachings is to become a Disciple of TheWay, and bring about that condition within one's own body-mind Temple, where one can be with the Lord "in the House", and receive the Mysteries of God from the One Teacher of Light.   To accomplish this, you must learn to turn the Key of Knowledge -- i.e., the scriptures -- within yourself.   The True Meaning of not only the Gospel of Thomas, but also of all genuine scriptures, can only be revealed to those who gain the experiential knowledge through direct revelation of the One Teacher within.   Thus, the words: "These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.  And he said, Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death. Jesus said, Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All."  
 

The Light Of Yeshua -- The Messianic Nazirene Disciple of TheWay: While many teach that believers are saved by faith, the journey of the disciple of Yeshua is one of absolute dedication to The Way. The disciple who becomes a brother to Yeshua must live as he lived, and become a Nazirene who is consecrated and wholly set apart as they walk the Narrow Way, enter into the Kingdom through the Strait Gate, and learn directly from the L-rd -- the One Rabbi and Teacher of the Mysteries of G-d.  
 

Divine Strategery: How God Fools Mankind - Keeping Him Ignorant Of The Truth: Strategery has become synonymous with when what is portrayed as simple, simpleminded, or even self-evident, is able to dupe and thwart an opposing force that perceives itself to be either superior, or to suppose they know the answers.   Divine Strategery is how God fools all the religious leaders of this world who think they doctrinally know God -- all the would-be teachers and philosophers of this world who think they Know Truth -- all the Atheists and those who criticize and denounce the existence of God by virtue of their limited perception and understanding -- and all the people in this world who think they understand the purpose of life and the world in which we presently dwell.  As prodigal sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, if the people in this life knew the answers, then the learning experience of God's SchoolHouse of this world would not effectively evolve us to become true Brothers and Sisters of our Elder Brother Yeshua/Jesus.  Therefore, in order to insure that each of us is immersed in the necessary learning experience that this life offers, all people are equally fooled into thinking they know, in order for them to be manipulated into embracing a higher agenda that is beyond their ability to even imagine.   Thus, Divine Strategery!!!

 
 

The Pre-Existent Soul of Mankind: Jesus taught the reality of the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes. The Church adheres to the doctrine and theology of a Circus Prostitute and a Roman Emperor who maintained absolute control over what Christians were permitted to believe! Christians continue to cling to the theology of this Circus Prostitute today - rejecting the teachings of Jesus, while adhering to the doctrines of Pagan Rome. The mass confusion of an uncountable number of sects today, is the direct result of the void which was brought about when this foundational concept was removed from both the Bible, as well as Christian doctrine. The doctrinal quagmire which was brought about with the removal of this foundational teaching, obstructs Christians growth and maturity beyond the entry-level simple faith. Because they adhere to the corrupted doctrines of men, modern Christians can't inherit the Biblical Promise of entering the Kingdom and Life.

 
 

It was said of the Church Father Origen by St. Gregory of Nyssa that he was “the prince of Christian learning in the Third Century” -- and the Encyclopedia Britannica calls him “…the most prominent of all the church fathers”.  But how did he become the man that St. Jerome considered to be “the greatest teacher of the Church after the Apostles”?   According to the soul who lived as Origen, he had previously lived as the disciple and scribe of Jacob who people call James, who was the Brother of Jesus.   And from that life with Jacob, he learned to write scriptures in Hebrew Characters, and he worked on the original source scriptures which has since come to be called the New Testament scriptures of the Bible.   On his web site, Emmanuel Pohorecki reveals not only the accounts of the many lifetimes that he has lived, but also his own journey into the presence of his soul-self -- i.e., his true self who is the Being of Light.   And once again Emmanuel has demonstrated that you don't need to physically die to communicate with, and enter into the presence of your soul-self who is the Being of Light in the Near Death Experience.   And in his soon to be completed article on the Journey of the Soul and Visions from his Higher Self, he will write about what his soul-self has taught him while in the Realm of Souls.   Emmanuel provides other important insights in man's higher reality with his account of his life with Fr. Francis, as a Native American, and as one of the Constitutional Founding Fathers of the United States.  
 

The Gnostic Way is to manifest the Divine Pattern in the Life of the person in every action, word and desire we express, so as to overcome the divisions that exist in the consciousness of the physical reflections of man.  In order to accomplish this we must come to see life from a higher perspective that overcomes the apparent paradoxes of the lower perspectives.

The Long Island Mystic and Nazirene Disciple of TheWay: The Organizational HomePage of The Nazirene -- the Long Island Mystic, Evangelical Minister, and Prophet of TheWay -- who God bestowed upon him the gift of the recall of his previous life as a Disciple and Brother of Messiah/Christ -- and thus has re-entered this world at the present time in order to restore the Spiritual Essence and Teachings of his Master, Yeshua/Jesus. The Kingdom is within! And we must sojourn the narrow path of TheWay, enter the "strait gate" to the Inner Spiritual Temple, while still alive in the physical body.  Thus, modern Christians have misunderstood the words of Yeshua -- he never said that we must physically die to enter the Edenic Kingdom of Origination -- but rather, we must die to the culture, mindset and ways of this world in order to enter the Kingdom!   
 

Being Of Light: Who are we?  What are we? From where have we come?  What is our destiny?  To the demise of those who read these words, only a handful of people today can answer these all-important crucial questions correctly! The rest dwell under the cloud of unknowing -- and if you think you are the person whose reflection you see in the mirror, then you are a stranger to your true self and have made yourself part of the illusion of this world. With great wisdom Yeshua/Jesus is quoted in The Books of the Savior, also known as Pistis Sophia (Faith-Wisdom): "Do not cease seeking day or night, and do not let yourselves relax until you have found all the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Light, which will purify you and make you into Pure Light and lead you into the Kingdom of Light."  
 

Gospel of the Nazirenes -- Gospel Of Light: What did the Gospels look like before being edited and re-written by the Church of Rome? What were the original beliefs of the first followers of Yeshua? You will be astonished when you read a surviving text of The Gospel of the Nazirenes which was hidden away from the corrupters of the Roman Church. Are you ready for a truly enlightening experience?  
 

The Gate Of Eden: Why were the Nazirene/Ebionites vegetarian?  Why did they live in accordance with the precepts of the Torah/Law?  Why did they live separate and apart from both Jews and Christians?  The answer is very simple: The Gate of Eden is within us, and if we fail to enter therein while we are still physically alive in the body, we will have failed in our opportunity to enter into Life.  And while it can be countered that we are saved by our belief in Messiah/Christ, faith, or the blood of the lamb, the truth is that if we were truly faithful disciples of TheWay, that we would experience the opening of the inner door and the Kingdom coming within us.  The GateOfEden article explores all aspects of the need to pick up one's own cross and follow the narrow path that leads to the inner gate to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.  
 

Epistle Of Light - Epistle Of James To Pope John Paul II: 2000 years ago I lived as Jacob the brother of Jesus known as James. I was sent back to bring about the restoration of the Church, and the within letter to Pope John Paul is important for you to read and forward. The pope has the power to bring peace on earth if he releases certain early Christian documents that are in his possession. Jesus is calling out to you to help make the truth known! Will you hear the call?
