The Folly Of Bad Beliefs About God: Just as important is the fact that what the Apostle Peter and other enlightened individuals state about the scriptures is also true — and it is not only the countless inconsistencies that have been intentionally inserted into the textual body of the scriptures — but other literal statements that can be portrayed as “bad beliefs about God” which also serve an important higher purpose in the development of the mind of the reader. And this statement by Peter that the scriptures contain out-right “falsehoods” that if not correctly understood can cause them to be portrayed as “…the books which are able to deceive” is confirmed in the words of Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, where he writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”. Thus, what is portrayed as “…repugnant to both reason and common sense” is not at all historical — but rather, an allegorical portrayal of deeply important spiritual truths that those who believe the “falsehoods” of the literal text as actual historical events are blind to the spiritual meaning. And in believing the “falsehoods” that were intentionally inserted into the scriptures as what Peter portrays as a “test” for the reader, is representative of a condition of mind that has the power and ability to totally disenfranchise the reader from the true spiritual meaning of the written word.
The ability to bring about High-Level Thought and an enlightened assessment and understanding of man’s true reality, is dependent upon the developed and evolved balance of the Linear and Intuitive Spheres of Mind. And it is the purpose of the scriptures to bring about the development of the Intuitive Spheres of mind that in most people are suppressed by the dominate Linear — and this necessary development is contingent upon catalysts and symbols inserted into the scriptures that are beyond the limits of the Linear to perceptively comprehend. These historical “falsehoods” and easily discernable untruths which utilize symbols and catalysts that can only be resolved when the Intuitive is able to connect with the person’s inner resources of mind and being, is absolutely necessary to develop the mind beyond what Paul portrays as the “animal-soul” level of organic consciousness. For an important reason Paul portrayed the written text of the scriptures as the “letter that killeth” (2 Cor 3:6). And referred to them as “Jewish fables” (Titus 1:14). And what he was stating was that those who see only the text of the written word have embraced the “letter that killeth”. To the Galatians who were attempting to embrace the Jewish outward ritual observances of the Torah, Paul states: “Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?” And then Paul goes on to explain to those who want to attempt to read the written word literally in an historical context as Christians do today: “For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory” (Gal 4:21-24 KJV). What this means is that what in appearance is portrayed historically in the scriptures, was not history at all — but rather, was an allegorical account that both preserved and concealed important spiritual truths which are not discernable and evident when reading the text of the written word. And what this means is that all the countless Jewish, Christian and Muslim clergy who read the scriptures as if they are historical accounts, are all in grave error.
In the account of the Clementine Homilies, Peter warns his disciple Clement that Simon Magus has the ability to greatly deceive the Gentiles, because they (the Gentiles) fail to understand the vision and traditions used by the authors in the composition of the scriptures. Where those who fail to understand the objective and purpose of the scriptures with respect to the development and enlightenment of the mind attempt to read them as literal historical events — the authors of the scriptures understood the need to restore the lost prodigal sons to the Edenic Kingdom, and this could only be accomplished through the restoral of the Wholeness of Mind. Since the Gentiles and (carnal) Jews did not — and continue not to — understand this higher mental and spiritual objective of the authors of the scriptures, they remain easily deceived and seduced by charlatans and faux-teachers and religious authorities who attempt to read the scriptures as if they presented actual historical events.
In the quotation of Peter preserved in his disciple Clement’s writings, because of the believers inability to understand the original vision and objectives of the authors of the scriptures, Peter correctly portrays them as being easily seduced by Simon Magus, because they dwell at a level of mind whereby they hold what Peter portrays as bad and erroneous beliefs about God. Thus, Peter warns that while those who can be portrayed as Spiritual Israel understnad the “traditions” which the authors of the scriptures employed, and will therefore understand the deeper spiritual meaning of the scriptures — both the carnal Jews and the Gentiles will be greatly deceived and states: “And with us, indeed, who have had handed down from our forefathers the worship of the God who made all things, and also the mystery of the books which are able to deceive, he will not prevail; but with those from amongst the Gentiles who have the polytheistic fancy bred in them, and who know not the falsehoods of the Scriptures, he will prevail much. And not only he; but if any other shall recount to those from among the Gentiles any vain, dreamlike, richly set out story against God, he will be believed, because from their childhood their minds are accustomed to take in things spoken against God. And few there shall be of them, as a few out of a multitude, who through ingenuousness shall not be willing so much as to hear an evil word against the God who made all things. And to these alone from amongst the Gentiles it shall be vouchsafed to be saved. Let not any one of you, therefore, altogether complain of Simon, or of any one else; for nothing happens unjustly, since even the falsehoods of Scripture are with good reason presented for a test.”
Thus, what we are presented with in the above statement is one of the most profound scriptural realities that is not understood at all today by not only the congregations of faith-based Christian believers, but also their acclaimed religious experts, authorities and critics. If it is true that what can be considered inconsistencies and the “falsehoods” of the literal text were intentionally inserted into the scriptures for both an important heretofore unknown reason that is not understood by the faith-based believers and their teachers and religious authorities — and these inconsistencies and the “falsehoods” were intentionally inserted into the scriptures as a “test” imposed upon the reader or student of the scriptures — then it can be rightly stated that the modern believer has absolutely no understanding of both the purpose and the spiritual meaning of the scriptures they promote. That the (carnal) Jews could not see beyond the symbols of the allegory, and their eyes and hearts were hardened so they remained blinded to the spiritual meaning, and therefore could not comprehend the true meaning of the scriptures, is readily acknowledged where Paul states that “their minds were blinded” by the Laws of God, “for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament… even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart” (2 Cor 3:14-15 KJV). The 2nd century Church Father Clement of Alexandria in his Stromata explained: “…now that the Savior has taught the Apostles, the unwritten rendering of the written, this has been handed down also to us”. What Clement is stating is that it was Jesus who taught his disciples the inner spiritual meaning of the scriptures by opening their minds so their understanding could pierce through the garb of the allegorical enigmas that blind the perception of carnal men — i.e., “Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures” (Luke 24:45 NIV). Yet, while the Gentiles will see a very different message than the carnal Jews, both will be equally deceived and turned out of TheWay.
The mind of organic man that Paul portrays as being of an “animal-soul” level of consciousness, is overwhelmed with grave misconceptions and conclusions pertaining to both himself, the purpose of the life he is presently living, the higher reality of his own Soul and the reality of God. Organic man is therefore incapable of comprehending his own higher Soul-Reality. In view of the fact that he is attempting to understand what his organic Linear mind is incapable of comprehending without the necessary integration of the paradoxical opposites of mind that permits and brings about the deepening and expansion of mind and consciousness, he remains overwhelmed with what Peter portrays as the “falsehoods” of the literal text of the scriptures that are necessary for the development of the Intuitive spheres of mind. In the same way that the mind of an immature child is full of fantasy and misconceptions pertaining to the realities of life, so too is the immature person who is still of an “animal-soul” level of consciousness. While the Natural Laws bring about physical development from conception to birth and every step and level of growth of the child into physical adulthood, the fact that mental development is dependent upon choice and freewill — and the living out and experiencing the fruit of one’s choices — the stages of development must be over the course of many lifetimes whereby the biblical teachings is fulfilled: “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).
In addition to the mind developing by virtue of the choices we make, the process of mental growth and development often requires man to live out what he judges and condemns in others (see Everyday Is Judgment Day AND ALSO Judgment Day – Evolving To Maturity Of Mind And Being ). By becoming what we judge and condemn, we learn by experiencing the opposite and often conflicting realities of mind with which organic man is imbued (see The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind ). Each life that our Soul lives, develops a different area of the Soul-Mind. Those who learn their lessons from the choices they make, develop more quickly. What is not at all understood is the reality of this world as a Mental Womb — wherein the subsequent stages of Soul-Birth can be brought about. Therefore, the solution to the immature divided mind is not to teach in the rote programming manner that the rabbis and teachers of this world attempt to do — but rather, to use and employ important symbols and catalysts that have the ability to Intuitively connect — using the process of Anamnesis — to connect the undeveloped mind of organic man with his own Inner Source of Mind and Being.
If the scriptures were a mere linear/historical account that one reads and believes as championed by Christian believers and theologians, such accounts would insure that the lost prodigal sons and daughters would remaine shackled to the abject ignorance of this world that is portrayed as the Far Country. As explored in Linear Vs Intuitive Development Of Mind, the process of thought can only be manifest when the Interaction of the Linear and Intuitive spheres of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life are interactively engaged in pursuit of an expanded reality of mind and spirit. Therefore, many of the inconsistencies or even the literal/historical “falsehoods” which Moses Maimonedes portrays as “…repugnant to both reason and common sense”, are representative of the negative polarity catalysts that are necessary to draw the understanding from the Intuitive spheres of mind . And this is why Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement warned that “…therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without” When the scriptures are read “…according to the understanding of our own mind” , the catalysts and symbols that are necessary to spawn Intuitive Insight, are all negated when subject to organic human understanding. And it is the Linear spheres of mind that is portrayed in the words: “…For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without”. Why? Because to free the reader from the intellectual shackles of what Paul portrays as an “animal-soul” level of consciousness, it is necessary to engage and draw upon the Intuitive spheres of mind that perceives and understands often in reverse of the Linear spheres of mind. And this is especially important because the mind of man is patterned in Four Dynamic and often Paradoxical Opposites that are representative of semi-independent Trinities that must be mentally and spiritually resolved and harmonized in order to expand and deepen man’s Consciousness in pursuit achieving Spiritual Maturity and an Enlightened State of Mind and Being. To begin his return journey, the prodigal son is said to have begun to “come to his senses” — but what, exactly does this mean? When Jesus was asked by the Pharisees when the Kingdom of God would come upon the earth as their carnal “animal-soul” levels of consciousness envisioned? Jesus replied: “…The kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, See here! or, see there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:20-21). Which means that the Kingdom can only be entered by using the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge through our own inner realities of mind (see The Fatal Error Of The Church ). And this can only be accomplished in accord with Jesus’ teachings on an Inner Kingdom, through the expansion and deepening of our own Mind — which can only be accomplished through the use of the allegorical catalysts and symbols that have the innate ability to open our inner Resources of Mind. But this process became virtually impossible every time the scribes and authorities of the Church removed the conflicting divergences and conflicting accounts in order to read the scriptures in the manner of the spiritually disenfranchised Pharisees who read the scriptures literally and as a history book. Thereby, throwing away the Key of knowledge, and insuring the the body of Christians remain shackled in a self-imposed Spiritual Diaspora of abject ignorance.
In the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter portrays the scriptures as the “…books with the power to deceive” — and those who fail to understand both the traditions, and the nature of these writings, from the perception of the original objectives which the scriptures were supposed to bring about, as people who hold bad beliefs about God. Further, it was stated by Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement that each person (who does not apply the Key of Knowledge) only sees in the scriptures, what they are predisposed to see and believe — i.e., “Therefore Simon, who is going to discuss in public with us tomorrow, is bold against the monarchy of God, wishing to produce many statements from these Scriptures, to the effect that there are many gods, and a certain one who is not He who made this world, but who is superior to Him; and, at the same time, he is going to offer many scriptural proofs. But we also can easily show many passages from them that He who made the world alone is God, and that there is none other besides Him. But if any one shall wish to speak otherwise, he also shall be able to produce proofs from them at his pleasure. For the Scriptures say all manner of things, that no one of those who inquire ungratefully may find the truth, but simply what he wishes to find…”. What this means is that the scriptures are so designed to bring about that condition where each and every person is able to see and confirm their doctrines of belief which they are predisposed to look for in the written text. And more important is the statement that those who attempt to read the scriptures from a differing mindset and objectives than the intended purpose of the original authors, will remain blind to “…the truth, but simply [see] what he wishes to find…” in the scriptures.
Contrary to what is convenient to believe, the true meaning of the scriptures can only be found when it is in accord with the original vision and perception of its author — and not what others choose to believe. Jesus warned the carnal Jews that they did not understand the true meaning of the scriptures, because they attempted to perceive them through the filter of their man-made beliefs, doctrines and traditions. And in like manner, the true meaning of the Gospels, is that which was envisioned by its Ebionite Nazirene authors. And the modern Church continues to remain spiritually bankrupt, because they condemned and rejected the objectives and vision of the original authors, while attempting to read the scriptures through the filter of the doctrines of Pagan Rome. When rightly understood, it can be said that there really are no inconsistencies and untruths in the scriptures? Yet, for a very important reason the Church has many times failed in their attempt to create a master gospel that synthesized the witness of all four Gospel accounts into one uniform presentation — and every attempt has been met with failure. Why? Because there are such vast difference between the Gospel accounts, that it is virtually impossible to create one synthesized presentation. Which has empowered the critics to point out that if the scriptures were actually inspired by the Holy Spirit, then why would these many inconsistencies exist?
In truth, there are no inconsistencies in the scriptures — and what is portrayed as errors and inconsistencies by the critics were intentionally inserted into the text on purpose. The Church Father Origen explained that “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics). Why would Origen portray the quasi-historical accounts of the scriptues as “worthless”? Because historical accounts are interpreted from a Linear perspective of mind — which unbalanced and one-sided perspective shackles the reader to an undeveloped state of abject ignorance which Paul portrays as an “animal-soul” level of consciousness. With respect to the nature of the scriptures, Origen further explains in De Principiis that: “Where the word found that things done according to the history could be adapted to these mystical senses, he made use of them concealing from the multitude the deeper meaning; but where in the narrative of the development of super-sensual things, there did not follow the performance of those certain events which were already indicated by the mystical meaning, the scripture interwove in the history the account of some event that did not take place, sometimes what could not have happened; sometimes what could but did not.” And that the carnal mind of both the blind believer, as well as the skeptic critic, both attempt to ignore these important inconsistencies, and attempt to read the scriptures as an historical account, inhibits the process of development of mind that enables them to perceive and understanding the great truths that lie concealed beneath the allegorical texts. And in the proper application of the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge, the Church Father Origen writes: “But all the narrative portion, relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children, or to battles of different kinds, or to any other histories whatever, what else can they be supposed to be, save the forms and figures of hidden and sacred things? As men, however, make little effort to exercise their intellect, or imagine that they possess knowledge before they really learn, the consequence is that they never begin to have knowledge”.
What does this mean? What it means is that “…all the narrative portion [of the scriptures], relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children, or to battles of different kinds, or to any other histories whatever”, do not at all pertain to historical accounts of man’s more distant past — but rather, to the Forces and Laws that are presently working within man’s own mind and being. Why? How could Origen who was called the prince of Christian learning second only to the Apostles themselves, state that the historical interpretation of the scriptures is for the most part “worthless”? And that what is presented in the written text as marriages, the begetting of children, and the many various wars and battles are not at all historical — but rather, an allegorical portrayal of the Forces and Laws of Consciousness working within one’s own mind and being?
When it is recognized that this very warning was stated by Paul to the baptized and totally committed believers at Corinth — i.e., “I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way — in all your speaking and in all your knowledge — because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed” (1 Cor 1:4-7 NIV) — the modern reader who does not pause and reflect on what this means — personally — to them, remains a blind believer who is beyond the reach of the Gospel message. What is Paul stating to the believers at Corinth? That even though Paul himself had instructed them in the “testimony” of Christ — and that they had received the entire revelation of the Good News of the Gospel — to the degree that they were not “…lacking any spiritual gift” — they had yet to evolve and mature those facilities of mind that would enable them to perceive, discern and comprehend the higher reality of the soul and what Paul portrayed as the Mystery of the Gospel. And this is especially demonstrated in the second chapter of the very same Epistle where Paul warns these believers who have been given all primary historical knowledge and testimony of Christ: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).
Why did Paul warn that the person who he portrayed as being of a “natural” (human) mind, was incapable of comprehending the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel? And with respect to what Paul portrayed as the “testimony” of Christ, Paul openly stated: “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal” (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ). Modern man does not at all understand the true reality of Paul’s statements with respect to the inability of the “natural” human mind, because he does not comprehend that his own consciousness is built upon the lower three earthly kingdoms — and the fact that the consciousness of “natural” man is ruled over by his lower animal nature (seeOrganic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature) — and when the word that Paul used which is translated the “natural” mind, which portrays the natural organic mind of man as being at an animal level of consciousness — as demonstrated where the Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary writes with respect to the meaning of the word in the original Greek language: “natural man—literally, ‘a man of animal soul’.” Further, the Treasury Of Scriptural Knowledge makes the ignored and profound statement at 1 Cor 2:14 which reads (quoting Paul): “‘But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.’ Then provides the interpretative-meaning of Paul’s words with respect to the reality of what is portrayed by Paul as the natural man:. [Psuchikos,] the animal man, one who lives in a natural state, and under the influence of his animal passions; for [psuche] means the inferior and sensual part of man, in opposition to the [nous] understanding, or [pneuma,] the spirit”. And this is not only true — but is is a fact of life that all mystics and enlightened souls must deal with when interacting with organic man. Which is exactly why Paul profoundly stated to the very people who he had personally taught the Gospel message: “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal” (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ). Stating to the body of confirmed and baptized believers who he stated had received all truth and knowledge pertaining to the elementary “traditions” of Christ: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).
The literal seemingly historical text of the scriptures which Paul states is allegorical — i.e., “For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all” (Gal 4:22-26). Paul confirms what the Church Father Origen stated in the words: “But all the narrative portion, relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children …or to any other histories whatever, what else can they be supposed to be, save the forms and figures of hidden and sacred things?” Thus, not only is Abraham, his wives and children, allegorical images that denote a spiritual reality of mind and body, but so too is the Jerusalem of this world which is itself an allegorical symbol used to denote the “…Jerusalem which is above is free” That the literal text are symbols is further presented by Paul when he asks why they are observing the celebrations in the manner of the Jews — i.e., “…how is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless elemental things, to which you desire to be enslaved all over again? You observe days and months and seasons and years. I fear for you, that perhaps I have labored over you in vain” (Gal 4:9-11).
In order to understand the meaning and purpose of the scriptures, there is a simple formula that the reader of the scriptures must grasp and understand before they can even begin to understand the scriptures — and that is the scriptures are not at all historical accounts — they were never intended to be used as historical accounts — and while they employ what can be portrayed as an historical cloak in order to make them accessible to the seekers, this historical facade is necessary in order to present important allegorical truths to the reader who is willing to seek out the mental and spiritual meaning. As stated above, the scriptures employ “allegorical …symbols of …hidden” and incomprehensible truths of mind and spirit that could “…not [be] read according to the understanding of our own mind.” The objective of the scriptures is not to document the historical record — but to connect the person we are in this world, with our inner pre-existent Soul that has access to the Source of all Knowledge of Creation — and ultimately the Core of our Higher Consciousness that is portrayed as the Logos/Son of God. And therefore with this objective in mind, it must be then understood that one of the primary objectives of the scriptures is to develop those latent areas of the mind necessary to employ the process of Amnesis to tap into this inner Source of Knowledge that eclipses all the knowledge of this world.
The perceptive-comprehension of an Enlightened Anointed (Messiah/Christ) Mind is able to grasp all peripheral factors that must be brought together to form and embody the Higher vision of reality. Throughout man’s history there have been countless attempts to rectify and justify the plight of the struggles of mankind in this world — prompting the saying: The road to hell is often paved with a great many good intentions. In each instance of failure, the good intentions did not take into account many far-reaching factors that caused the failure of the idea, concept or effort. On the other hand, the Enlightened or Anointed Mind is able to bring all the peripheral factors into balance, and bring about success. And only when rightly comprehended, is the very foundation of mind and its necessary complexities understood. F. Scott Fitzgerald stated: “The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.” With this being true, we can then state that the Enlightened and Anointed Mind is able to assimilate and bring together the primary four (4) paradoxical trinities within the mind as manifest in the twelve (12) mental spheres, and raise the twelve intricate divisions into One Enlightened Expression. What can be portrayed as Wholeness of Thought is the product of all the diverse segments that have been brought together to create the Higher Enlightened All-Knowing Expression. And it can rightly be stated that all the good intentions that paved the road to hell, all failed to consider and merge all the diverse-segments into a Wholistic Single Expression of Higher Reality.
Most religious-oriented people can often be portrayed as intellectually lazy and spiritually complacent. To their manner of thinking, there is only one solution. Often this is expressed in the rhetoric: “All you need is Love”. they expect some Messianic authority to come and zap everyone’s mind — eradicate freewill — and though some supernatural means invoke a feeling of love throughout all of mankind. Of course they evade such reason as, why wasn’t mankind immersed in love when he first stepped foot on the face of the earth? Few advocates of unconditional love have the ability to even appreciate the complexity of mind from a truly Knowing and Enlightened Reality. To their very limited thinking everyone should simply surrender and submit to Higher Power — failing to understand the relationship of the Higher Power to mankind. Yet, without understanding the very source and complexity of Love, the solution of love has proved ineffective and lacking on an immensely large scale. Many envision all of mankind as being homogenized into singleness, and intellectually eradicated and programmed into a single love-thought. In a Theocratic environment, everyone is often required to unquestionably submit to the commandments of the religious leader. But history has demonstrated countless time that the theocratic environment is responsible for countless abuses and sufferings for those who disagree with the theological requirements of the leaders.
Both man and an amoeba can be portrayed as being individualized and one — and yet, the intellectual differences are so vast, that the two cannot even be compared with each other. Higher Perception, Knowledge and Comprehension requires a complexity of Understanding — and this necessary complexity can only be drawn from an evolved intellect that is able to perceptively-synthesize many greatly varying and often opposing factors and divisions. While both man and an amoeba can be portrayed as ONE, because of the complexity of mind and body that makes up man, no comparison can be made with respect to intelligence, intellect and reasoning. In the same way that the organs and systems of man’s body are segmented in order to create a harmonic segregated environment for the mind to function at a higher level — with the amoeba being the opposite of man — it is important to understand that the very complex human body and mind were all drawn from the One Primary Cell — and that within the One exists the genetic structure that manifested the complex organism known as man.
A successful business man understands the immense value of having a body of a diverse and well informed advisors that can contribute divergent, contrary and often greatly contrasting opinions that provide solutions to the often conflicting issues that create a successful endeavor over failure. It is said that a genus can hold two paradoxical thought simultaneously in his mind — and by definition, an Enlightened Anointed Mind can merge the four paradoxical-trinities of mind into a Higher Perceptive Vision of man’s reality. Because the mind of man is comprised of twelve (12) separate and often opposing spheres of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life — with each of the spheres perception and understanding drawn from a very different and often opposite perspective — the same account can rightfully be presented in different scriptures not only from a different perspective — but often using different names, numbers and a variation on places and events. Why? Because when dealing with allegorical portrayal of aspects of mind, there is also the factor of the Twelve Within the Twelve (see The Twelve Within The Twelve ). What this means is that because the scriptures are not historical accounts — but rather, often present the perception of the mind from as many as twelve (12) different segments of consciousness that impact the whole — there are often major differences between texts.
In the subheading on The Mystery Of The Gospel, it is demonstrated that Paul taught to seek Spiritual Knowledge from the Source — which Sacred Knowledge can be portrayed as the Divine Manna that is fed to sincere seekers — and in the Greek language this Sacred Knowledge is called Gnosis. More importantly is the fact that Paul openly warned the people that this Spiritual Knowledge is beyond the comprehension of organic (“natural”) man — even when the believer is a committed and baptized Christian who Paul portrays as having received the gifts of the spirit by the laying on of hands by the Apostle himself (see Animal-Soul ). If those who Paul himself taught what he called the “testimony” of Christ, were incapable of comprehending the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel which he called the Mystery, then an insightful and intelligent reader would conclude that there is far more to the Gospel account than what can be understood by the congregation of believers.
It is also demonstrated that the scriptures are written in a code that conceals the true meaning — to the degree that Jesus had to open the minds of the disciples for them to perceive the meaning that other (organic) men were blind to — i.e., “Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures” (Luke 24:45). And what is presented to us in the enigma of the allegorical scriptures that are written in a secret code, is the reason why Peter portrayed the scriptures as the “books with the power to deceive” — and why Peter warned that “…even the falsehoods of Scripture are with good reason presented for a test.” (see Power To Deceive ). What, then, is the test that Peter is making reference to? Peter explains that in the case of most people, all that they see and think they understand, is basically what they already believe — and that the scriptures are written in such a way, that virtually anyone can confirm their previously held beliefs in the written words of the scriptures. Why? Because, few men who do not Know Thyself — and remain ignorant about their own higher soul and spiritual reality that is beyond man’s organic comprehension — are capable of perceiving the true meaning of the scriptures that remains safeguarded beneath the allegory of the written words. Why is the esoteric knowledge concealed in this manner? To both preserve it for those who can put it to use, and safeguard it from those who would destroy it (see An Inconvenient Truth).
Is The Old Testament About The Jews? Based upon the reality presented above that the scriptures are “allegorical …symbols of something hidden” that are not subject to human understanding, then everything in the scriptures are universal allegorical symbols that portray the Laws and Forces of Mind and Consciousness. While the Essenes/Therapeutae/Ebionite/Nazirenes understood the spiritual nature of the scriptures, the Jews and many of the Gentile Christians were too carnal in their thinking to comprehend the scriptures. The Jews (Pharisees and Sadducees) who were portrayed as apostates to the Truth and the Kingdom by those who can be portrayed as Spiritual Israel (the Essene/Therapute/Ebionite/Nazirenes), were portrayed negatively and the example of what not to be — i.e.,“Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it” (John 8:43-44 NKJ). 6And anyone who reads the scriptures as if they were historical accounts — in contradistinction to using them as the Key of Knowledge and turning them within one’s own mind and being — can be portrayed as a Jew and an apostate to the Truth and the Kingdom. Resulting in the reality that the person remains carnal and of an “animal-soul” level of consciousness that is incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the Soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom. When Edward Gibbon acknowledged in the Decline And Fall of the Roman Empire the fact that the Ebionite Nazirene and Gospel teachings were “…embraced by great numbers of the Therapeutae, or Essinians…”, the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls prove that the New Covenant teachings were drawn from the very essence of those who can be portrayed as Spiritual Israel.
