The Left And Right Hands Of God

The Left And Right Hands Of God: In the parable of the prodigal son, Jesus portrays the Citizen of the Far Country as maintaining total and complete control over the lost son — but why?   Why would Creator-God even create and bring forth an environment that would take control and rule over the mind, thinking and lives of the lost prodigal sons and daughters?   Because the scriptures were corrupted ( ),  and the modern believer has been denied access to the original teachings of Jesus on the journey of the soul  (see Preexistent Soul), it has become virtually impossible for the modern Christians to understand the Laws and the reality of what is portrayed as evil in the world.    And when properly understood, the answer to these questions go to the very core of what man calls good and evil — and why God would seemingly permit evil to prevail in the world without intervening.   In that writing known as the Clementine Homilies, the Apostle Peter is quoted as explaining with respect to the Laws that control all movements and events in this world: “For thus from the beginning was a law laid by God, the Creator of all things, on each of the two princes, him of the right hand and him of the left, that neither should have power over any one whom they might wish to benefit or to hurt, unless first he had sat down at the same table with them. As, then, when you partook of meat offered to idols, you became servants to the prince of evil, in like manner, if you cease from these things, and flee for refuge to God through the good Prince of His right hand, honoring Him without sacrifices, by doing whatsoever He wills, know of a truth that not only will your bodies be healed, but your souls also will become healthy. For He only, destroying with His left hand, can quicken with His right; He only can both smite and raise the fallen.”   

It is near impossible to understand the Gospel account of Jesus and the Syro-Phoenician woman, without understanding what Peter stated in the above quotation with respect to the Laws.   Thus, it is written:  “For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet.  The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter.  But Jesus said to her, Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.  And she answered and said to Him, Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children’s crumbs.  Then He said to her, For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.  And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed” (Mark 7:25-30 NKJ).   Thus, the question: Why did Jesus not immediately help her?   Why did he portray the woman as a dog?    What is the spiritual meaning of the children’s bread which is served at the Table — bread that cannot be eaten by those portrayed as dogs?   Moreover, an important question that is rarely ever even considered, is the relationship between the acquisition of the bread and the presence of a demon that has invaded a person?   In answering the first question: The Laws which were instituted by God in the beginning, inhibited those who are servants of the Right Hand such as Jesus, from relieving the infirmities of those who sat down at the table on the Left — people who Jesus portrayed as being in a type of Prison (see The Prison).   Thus, Jesus could not initially help the woman, because she had come under the control of the Left Hand — i.e., “…that neither should have power over any one whom they might wish to benefit or to hurt, unless first he had sat down at the same table with them.”   

The modern believers who, having adopted the doctrines of men, remain totally unaware of the fact that they dwell in a Spiritual Diaspora (see The Lie).   They imagine that when they hear the Gospel, they say their Jesus-prayer, and they are then saved without any other requirements.   Yet, while there are many verses of scripture that refutes this manmade doctrine, we can easily see this refutation in the parable of the Sower and the Seed where it states that when they embrace the word, it becomes unfruitful because they fail to perfect the Word with their actions — i.e.,  “And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful” (Mark 4:19 KJV).   Thus, when they are tested by the Left Hand in the manner portrayed in the Book of Job, they succumb and fail the tests presented to them.  

Again Peter explains to his disciple Clement: “But that this is so, has been said even by the law in the person of God: ‘I will kill, and, I will make alive; I will strike, and I will heal. For, in truth, He kills and makes alive. He kills through the left hand, that is, through the evil one, who has been so composed as to rejoice in afflicting the impious. And he saves and benefits through the right hand, that is, through the good one, who has been made to rejoice in the good deeds and salvation of the righteous.”  

And in prayer Peter states:  “Deliver me, O Lord of all, from Thy fearful judgment. Do not give the enemy power to swallow me up, and to become heir of my soul, as of that of him who is hanging on the left; for I see how the devil joyfully takes his soul, and his body disappears.”   But Christians today are as the men of Nineveh of whom it is said: “And should I not pity Nineveh, that great city, in which are more than one hundred and twenty thousand persons who cannot discern between their right hand and their left?” (Jonah 4:11 NKJ).   For as it was said to Job: “Then I will also confess to you that your own right hand can save you” (Job 40:14 NKJ).   And in the Psalms: “You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore… Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; you will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me” (Ps 16:11;138:7 NKJ).   Which is the reason why Jesus said that those on the right will enter into life, while those on the left will inherit the tribulation of their deeds and ways: “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matt 25:41 NKJ).   The fires are the purifying effect of the Laws which return to each person the fruit of their own actions.

In the same way that in accord with the Divine Pattern — as well as the Duality and Threefold reality of all of Creation — there is the Duality of the Two Ways, the same is true with respect to the scriptures.   Paul portrayed the body of the scriptures as the “letter that killeth” to the Galatians when they were observing the rituals of the written word of the text.   Why?   Because the Left Hand is portrayed in the literal text — and is especially seen in the Mosaic Law of Karmic-Retribution of an eye for an eye — a reality of the Laws that control this world which has been ordained to perpetually return back to us the fruit of our own thoughts, desires and actions — i.e., “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Gal 6:7 NKJ).    A most profound statement by the Church Father Origen is basically rejected by the people of the simple faith today who are incapable of reason and engaging the mind in the process of true spiritual growth: “Every soul… comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis – see The Early Church On Predestination).   And when properly understood, that Angelic Power that Peter portrays and the Prince of the Left Hand, exercises absolute control over the prodigal son for the purpose of evolving him to a level of spiritual maturity.   In the life of mankind, much of this control over the people of this world is to maintain them in a condition where they can eventually overcome the Laws and bring about a state of Wholeness and Completion.   In the same way that a school is a controlled environment which is conducive to the process of learning, so too is this world.   And that, for the same reason that a student is not given the answers to the tests that they must complete before moving on to a higher level of instruction, there is an important reason why man dwells under the  cloud of ignorance that is portrayed as the “outer darkness” of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).   Therefore, the authors of the scriptures well understood the reality that the body of esoteric knowledge must be concealed from the ruling powers of this world, or it will be immediately destroyed.   Proof of this fact is easily demonstrated in the article The Ten Words, where it is demonstrated beyond any doubt that the original Ebionite Nazirene Disciples of Jesus were correct, in their assertion that Jesus was a man who became the Messiah and One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God at his baptism.   And regardless of the facts and proof presented, the Christian world ardently ignores the Truth, and condemns as heretics those who even present to them the facts.   Thus, they have eaten at the table of the Prince of the Left Hand, and their whole mind, thinking and lifestyle is under the control of what Paul portrays as the god of this world.  

Throughout most of man’s history it was virtually impossible for core essential truths to be written literally, because (1) organic man could not comprehend his own higher soul reality — (2) whenever core essential truths were written in a manner that man could begin to grasp them, these truths were quickly corrupted and condemned as heresy.   Therefore, it has always been necessary to preserve and conceal these core essential truths under the garb of allegory, so that they could be passed on to those who had the capacity to use them, and escape the shackles of what Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country.   Unbeknown to the congregation of faith-based believers who are acting in the capacity of a mule or courier who smuggles and preserves important sacred (esoteric) knowledge without the god of this world (Citizen of the far Country) being able to totally stop and inhibit the smuggling of these sacred esoteric truths — and while the god of this world can keep and maintain the congregation of believers in a state of denial when they are confronted with the facts, because of the manner that the scriptures are composed, it remains impossible for the Citizen of the Far Country to totally destroy the body of sacred knowledge.   Why?   Because all things that exist, must exist within the Divine Pattern of Creation.   Therefore, the scriptures are composed using a CODE — and the CODE takes into account the very Spiritual DNA of Creation itself.   What this means is that the CODE to retrieving the esoteric knowledge that lies concealed beneath the text which Paul portrayed as the “letter that killeth” (2 Cor 3:6), which was often little more than “Jewish fables” (Titus 1:14), was the CODE which Jesus portrayed as  The Key of Knowledge  that the Jews are said to have thrown away.    That the segment of the Gentile Church which called themselves Orthodox, followed in the same way as the carnal Jews who were portrayed as Pharisees, is the very reason why the congregation of Christians today are themselves a body of mules or couriers, who dwell in a Spiritual Diaspora that totally inhibits them from perceiving the true meaning of the Gospels.   Yet, because they have preserved the sacred writings, they can begin to free themselves from the constraints and shackles of the Citizen of the Far Country, by learning how to apply The Key of Knowledge to both the scriptures, the world in which they live, and within the construct of their own body, mind/soul and spiritual natures.
