C3.08. Spiritual Religion

To understand the essence of a Spiritual Religion, you must first understand why Jesus condemned and rejected the Jewish teachers and “…experts in religious law” as being spiritually counterfeit.   The allegation of Jesus’ words is seen in the fact that there exists what he called a Key of Knowledge — and when this Key of Knowledge is properly applied, then the person possessed the ability to enter the Kingdom — i.e., “…For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don’t enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering.”    Thus, the objective of a Spiritual Religion is to reveal and properly apply the Key of Knowledge in such a way, that the person gains access to the Kingdom — which Jesus said was within each of us (see Luke 17:20-21 @ http://GateOfEden.com ).   And the fact that the carnal Jews who, in their very limited understanding of the scriptures, was teaching the people to look for the Kingdom of God to come upon the earth — in the same way that Christians today look for the Second Coming — it is seen that the leaders of both the Jews and the Christians had in fact hidden and thrown away the Key of Knowledge.   Failing to fulfill the requirement of entering the Kingdom themselves — made them blind guides who “…prevent others from entering.”  And because the Church itself threw away the Key of Knowledge under Roman rule, these same words apply to modern Christians as much as the Jews who Jesus rejected and condemned.

Throughout man’s history the counterfeit religious leaders who acted in collusion with secular authorities perpetually hunted down the adherents of Spiritual Religion — declaring them to be heretics.   In the Middle Ages they held Inquisitions where the faith and belief of the people were tested — and those who failed the test, were tortured and put to death.   One such example is the case of Giordano Bruno who can be used as a demonstration of those Christians who did not subscribe to the dogma of Pagan Rome (see Giordano Bruno).   Quoting the article to present the concepts of cosmology which was foundational to Bruno’s positions: “Bruno believed (and praised Copernicus for establishing a scientific explanation for the fact) that the Earth revolves around the sun, and that the apparent diurnal rotation of the heavens is an illusion caused by the rotation of the Earth around its axis. Bruno also held (following Nicholas of Cusa) that because God is infinite the universe would reflect this fact in boundless immensity. Bruno also asserted that the stars in the sky were really other suns like our own, around which orbited other planets. He indicated that support for such beliefs in no way contradicted scripture or true religion  …Under this model, the Sun was simply one more star, and the stars all suns, each with its own planets. Bruno saw a solar system of a sun/star with planets as the fundamental unit of the universe. According to Bruno, infinite God necessarily created an infinite universe, formed of an infinite number of solar systems, separated by vast regions full of Aether, because empty space could not exist. (Bruno did not arrive at the concept of a galaxy.) Comets were part of a synodus ex mundis of stars, and not—as other authors maintained at the time—ephemeral creations, divine instruments, or heavenly messengers. Each comet was a world, a permanent celestial body, formed of the four elements.   Bruno’s cosmology is marked by infinitude, homogeneity, and isotropy, with planetary systems distributed evenly throughout. Matter follows an active animistic principle: it is intelligent and discontinuous in structure, made up of discrete atoms. This animism (and a corresponding disdain for mathematics as a means to understanding) is the most dramatic respect in which Bruno’s cosmology differs from what today passes for a common-sense picture of the universe.  During the later 16th century, and throughout the 17th century, Bruno’s ideas were held up for ridicule, debate, or inspiration. Margaret Cavendish, for example, wrote an entire series of poems against “atoms” and “infinite worlds” in Poems and Fancies in 1664. Bruno’s true, if partial, rehabilitation would have to wait for the implications of Newtonian cosmology.”

In the presentation of the esoteric knowledge that was revealed to the inner core of Jesus’ disciples, I greatly expand upon the reality of matter and cosmology of mind throughout this present article in order to present an enlightened picture that must be considered if the disciple is to begin to seek and manifest their true spiritual potential.   In the same way that much of the body of this esoteric Knowledge (Gnosis) was revealed to me by the True Prophet/Son of God, the question becomes: Was Giordano Bruno put to death for expressing the Knowledge that the Son of God revealed to him directly?   Which means that Giordano Bruno — as was the case of countless other Spiritual Christians — was persecuted because he attempted to present to the people important esoteric truths that they must have an understanding of, in order to bring about the fulfillment of the Gospel Objectives within themselves.   Thus, this reality is portrayed in the words: “These things I have spoken to you, that you may be kept from stumbling.  They will make you outcasts from the synagogue, but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God” (John 16:1-2 NAS).   The adherents of Spiritual Religion are Gnostics, because they utilize the Key of Knowledge to gain access into the inner Kingdom, and learn from the One Teacher which has traditionally been called the Logos/Son of God (see Logos).     In contradistinction, the counterfeit religious leaders who have thrown away the Key of Knowledge, always portray themselves as Orthodox.   At the founding of the United States, many who walked the more spiritual path of the Gnostics were known as Deists — and some were associated with the Masons.   

It is import to understand that the guarantees of First Amendment God-Given Rights that is the cornerstone foundation of the Constitution of the United States, is from the side of the Deists and Masons — and one of its primary objectives was to insure freedom of thought from mainstream faith-based religions — i.e., Fundamentalist Christianity.    Among the U.S. founding fathers, John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Ethan Allen, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Thomas Paine, and George Washington were all Deists.

While the Masons were an esoteric order that had members in all religions and governments, the Deists were those who stated that God is the most Rational Force in Creation — and God can only be found with the expansion and development of the Rational Mind.   In contradistinction, traditional faith-based religion is one of blind and unquestioning belief in the dogma of the Church — as portrayed in the words of Martin Luther: “Reason, 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).    Why did Luther condemn the rational powers of perception and interpretation of the mind of man?    Luther embraced many of the same tenets and grave misunderstandings of the biblical doctrine of predestination as did Calvin — and Thomas Jefferson is quoted as saying of Calvinism: “His [Calvin’s] religion was demonism. If ever man worshiped a false God, he did. The being described in his five points is … a demon of malignant spirit. It would be more pardonable to believe in no God at all, than to blaspheme him by the atrocious attributes of Calvin” (Works, Vol. iv., p. 363).  In the foregoing chapter/subheading entitled, The Books With The Power To Deceive, I demonstrate that the Apostle Peter basically stated the same position that Jefferson did.   

Faith-based religion rejects the God-Given Gift of Reason, because their own ignorance pertaining to the true nature and objectives of both the scriptures and God, which causes them to embrace what Peter portrays as “unworthy beliefs about God” — causing them to believe grave error — or, in the words of Jesus directed at those who have thrown away the Key of Knowledge: “You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God” (Matt 22:29 NKJ).   In a Spiritual Religion, God is understood to be the most Rational Force in Creation — and it is the purpose of religion to bring about the necessary “…heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” that enables man to enter the Presence of what Jesus portrayed as the One Teacher (see True Prophet), and learn directly from God (see below).    It was impossible for Luther and Calvin to understand the biblical doctrine of predestination, because a Roman Emperor has forbid and condemned the teaching of Jesus on the journey of the soul (see  The Pre-Existent Soul).    And herein lies an even greater problem from a modern perspective which is seen in the fact that the people who presently portray themselves as Deists, fail to understand the very spiritual core of Deism — and thus, the essence of Reason itself.   The modern Atheists perceive themselves to be totally led by reason and intellect — and yet, their understanding of God, religion and the world is so radically different from that of the historical Deists who founded our Nation, that it can easily be demonstrated that reason alone is a spiritually bankrupt path.   Thus, reason without the necessary “…heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”, is in and of itself a dead-ended path.     

It is important to understand Deism because of its rejection of the European ideas of church and state — and in total opposition, it’s proclamation that man is imbued with God-Given UnAlienable Rights that are beyond the reach of government to in any manner suppress or inhibit.    It is easily demonstrated that the Epistles in the New Testament were corrupted with interpolations in order to make Christians in subjection to Rome (see Interpolations) — and these same interpolations were later used by the governments of Europe to promote political rulership of the Church.   The king of England was declared the vicar of God — and deemed infallible — even before this doctrine of infallibility was bestowed upon the pope.   And when properly understood, it is this relationship between church and state which caused the Christian world to be reduced to a condition of spiritual complacency.    Deism, on the other hand, not only rejects the whole concept of government ordained religion — promoting the separation of church and state — but lays the foundation for the concept that the highest obligation of government is to protect the God-Given Rights of the individual.  

Deism is defined as “…a religious and philosophical belief that a supreme god created the universe, and that this and other religious truth can be determined using reason and observation of the natural world alone” (see Deism) — and this revelation through the use of reason and observation was based upon the original objective of the teachings of Jesus as portrayed in the quotation from the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” — i.e., the focused objective is presented in the words “…the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.   If all that was necessary was the use of human reasoning to understand what the Deist’s stated was the work of Creator-God in the forming of the universe, then there would be no such thing as Atheists who reject the whole concept of a Creator.   And if we inquire as to what made the reasoning of a Deist who embraced a Creator-God, very different than the reasoning of an Atheist who totally rejects the whole concept of a Deity, the answer is found in the elevated and matured reasoning of the Deist who understood the Laws of Creation, in contradistinction to the Atheist whose powers of reasoning and intellect has been flat-lined by their blind ideology.    So the question then becomes: Did the Deists who framed our Constitutional form of government, understand a higher reality of the Laws that is not at all understood by those who claim to be affiliated with Deism today?   

With respect to the Deist assertion that truth can be found “…using reason and observation of the natural world”, this is merely conformation of the words of Paul explored in the above when he stated that the Truth of God can be discerned by observing the natural world — i.e.,  “…For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse (Rom 1:19-20 NAS).   That the critics of the Deists fail to understand that they merely confirmed what Paul stated, is conformation of the blindness on the part of the critics.   Modern quantum physics has begun to verify the position of the Mystic that not only is all of Creation imbued with the Divine Pattern — but that the Divine Pattern is holographically replicated into each of it parts.   And, as I will present at numerous points in this article, the physical is in fact the pattern for the Whole.   And what both Paul and the Deists are expressing, is the fact that if you apply the aspects of the pattern into each successive level of both Creation, and your own mind, soul and spirit, that you will begin to understand the Laws and the Forces at work — enabling you to not only conquer your own divided nature, but also prevail over these Forces and Laws.   Thus, fulfilling the requirement set forth in the second saying of the Gospel of ThomasJesus 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.”

Of primary importance is the observation of the Laws that control all aspects of the outer world, because it is these same Laws that holographically exist within the body and mind of each individual person.    Therefore, to begin to understand the forces and Laws that are working in the outer world, it is essential to embark upon the journey of self-discovery through the knowledge of understanding the very forces and Laws of the mind and consciousness of mankind — i.e., within one’s own mind and being.    And thus, the great truth that seems to have escaped the understanding and reasoning of the modern Deist is revealed in the book entitled Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, by G.R.S. Mead, where he explains that what the authors of the scriptures truly “…projected onto the screen… [in the form of a ] picture of the universe was in reality a picture of their own minds.”  He then writes of the scriptures: “Its mythology is a symbolic portrayal, almost a deliberate one, of the forces which operate in the structuring and evolution of the human personality”.  It was for this reason that Carl Jung called the Gnostic Christians the worlds first and foremost psychologists who understood the very fabric of human consciousness.   And, when rightly understood with what Jesus called the Key of Knowledge properly applied, the scriptures are about you — i.e. the Laws and Forces working in your own mind and body — and they are timeless and relevant to every period in human history.   And it is this higher enlightened understanding of the scriptures and the proper application of the Key of Knowledge that initiated and brought about the personal “revealed revelation” that provided the Deist the necessary supreme reasoning powers that enabled him to understand what Atheists and faith-believers were blind to.

On the surface the modern Deist does not appear to understand the Gnostic roots of Deism — or the fact that when rightfully understood, the historical man Jesus would be seen as a perfect example of the objectives of Deism.   Quoting the definition of Deism found at http://Deism.com : “Deism is belief in God based on the application of our reason on the designs/laws found throughout Nature. The designs presuppose a Designer. Deism is therefore a natural religion and is not a ‘revealed’ religion. The natural religion/philosophy of Deism frees those who embrace it from the inconsistencies of superstition and the negativity of fear that are so strongly represented in all of the ‘revealed’ religions such as Judaism, Christianity and Islam. (These religions are called revealed religions because they all make claim to having received a special revelation from God which they pretend, and many of their sincere followers actually believe, their various and conflicting holy books are based on.)”.   When it is recognized that Moses stated that there would be many other men of vision that would prove and confirm all that he stated — and in the original Gospel accounts, Jesus was a man (see TheTenLies.com ) who fulfilled the Law to become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) — and Mohammed was a man who became the prophet — then the whole of the modern Deist argument against what they portray as a revealed religion comes to naught.   Which means that the bottom line of the equation is that few men make the effort to follow and embrace the path of the prophets of TheWay.   If, in the example of Jesus, he fulfilled the Laws within himself that the modern neo-Deists are merely claiming to observe, then it is perfectly understandable why Jesus who fulfilled the Laws has been personified as a revealer.   And what the Gospels teach is that ANYONE who fulfills the Laws within themselves in the manner that Jesus did, will know and be able to accomplish all that he did.  

In accord with the above definition  found at http://Deism.com, it is demonstrated that at least philosophically, a Deist makes claim to a direct revelation from God that enables the Deist to access a higher perception than that of an Atheist.   A Deist maintains that there is a Creator-God, while the Atheist who is observing the same Laws, rejects the existence of god.   Therefore, unless Deism can demonstrate a basis for its position and substantiate their more enlightened vision and understanding than what is embraced by Atheists who are also reliant upon rational thinking, then Deism itself would have to be classified as merely another made up system of religious belief that has no basis in fact.   Either a single person or a core group of people who called themselves Deists, had to have a personal experience and revelation that enabled them to perceive and understand what the reasoning of an Atheist fails to reveal to them, or Deism itself would have to be classified as a fraud.   Further, the claim to this elevated experiential insight and knowledge is either the result of core Deist’s gaining access to this higher vision that has enlightened them — and this enlightened understanding has enabled them to state that the God of what they portray as revealed religions is false — and that would substantiate the claim that Deism itself has provided the foundation of an elevated and mature power of reason and intellect that the vast majority of mankind is simply not privy to.    Moreover, to substantiate the position that Creator-God remains in the background while the Natural Laws that were created in the beginning are guiding mankind to his Divine Destiny, there would have had to be someone among the original Deists who overcame the barrier between this world and that of the Kingdom, would have had to bridge the divide and become enlightened to this plight which immerses the human condition to a state of blind ignorance.    If rational thinking alone could reveal this higher reality that is promoted by Deism, then Atheists would not only believe in Creator-God, but their rational thinking would reveal this higher reality to them.   Which means that either Deism is itself a fraud, or there were core Deists who elevated their rational thinking by virtue of a enlightened vision that revealed this higher reality that Atheists and faith-based believers are blind to.   What this means is if Deism is not itself a fraud, then there had to exist a “revealer[s]” among the core Deists, whose elevated vision and knowledge enabled him to see and understand what was beyond the vision of the rational thought of organic man.  

When core Deists such as Thomas Paine and Jefferson condemned and rejected the personification of God which Christianity had drawn from reading the literal text of the Old Testament scriptures, it was because they were aware of the folly of the written word which Paul portrayed as the “letter that killeth” (see Defeated By The Literal Text) — and they were themselves privy to the fact that secularized institutionalized (organized) religion is always hostile to the core objectives of the authors of the scriptures, and by necessity the authors of the scriptures use the faith-based community of believers as mules who unknowingly carry a Spiritual Trojan Horse that can be retrieved in order to defeat the counterfeit authorities that control the people through the use of organized religion (see An Inconvenient Truth).   And the core Deists understood that the written text of the scriptures are purely allegorical, because they applied the Key of Knowledge that enabled them to use the scriptures as a catalyst to overcome the Laws, and circumvent the barrier between this world and the inner Kingdom within themselves — which is the very purpose and objective of the authors of the scriptures who concealed their esoteric knowledge in the manner of a Spiritual Trojan Horse to be used in the future.

On the surface it seems that the modern neo-Deist does not at all appear to understand the reason why the scriptures were written in the allegorical format that they have been, which format I reference above as the Language Of The Soul.    And it is their own failure and inability of modern neo-Deism to explain the insight that they claim provided them with a more elevated power of reasoning — i.e., an elevated reasoning that enabled them to embrace a higher truth than either their Atheist or faith-based revealed-religion brothers and sisters.    Therefore, in many respects, the modern neo-Deist’s inability to explain and understand the inner spiritual meaning of the scriptures — dismissing them as mere superstitious folly — is proof that the vast majority of modern Deists are little more than Atheists who champion another unknown Demiurge which they promote over all the other varieties of Demiurges embraced by what they portray as revealed religions.   Why?   It is impossible to advance beyond a rudimentary level of reasoning and human rational thought, without coming to understand both the Language Of The Soul, and why the Key of Knowledge must be applied to the written word of the scriptures to ascertain the true meaning concealed within the body of the Spiritual Trojan Horse embodied in the allegorical text of the written word — i.e., the “letter that killeth” (see Defeated By The Literal Text).   Once properly understood, the allegory of the scriptures mirrors the allegory of the outer world which are the Thoughts (of God) impressed into the forms of matter — brought about by the Laws which Deists profess to comprehend — which man interacts with in order to bring about and manifest what Deists portray as man’s Divine Destiny.  

Again, lets closely examine the position of  Deism which embodies the above concepts on a “…Supreme being does not intervene in human affairs or suspend the natural laws of the universe …assert[ing] that God (or “The Supreme Architect”) has a plan for the universe that is not to be altered by intervention in the affairs of human life.”   These Laws that were instituted as “…a plan for the universe that is not to be altered by intervention in the affairs of human life”, because these Laws not only drive mankind to his Destiny envisioned and ordained by Creator-God, but they accomplish this by maintaining a spiritual bio-feedback environment that perpetually returns to each individual person the fruit of their own ways and actions, and these same Laws advance man in his journey of the soul by immersing him in a world of mental imagery impressed into the forms of matter.   Therefore, once this higher reality is understood, what the scriptures do is reformat the mental imagery in such a way, that when the Key of Knowledge is properly applied, the scriptures act as a catalyst that is used to expand man’s organic reasoning and depth of mind to the degree with he is able to move beyond the limitations of man’s organic level of consciousness, and perceive and comprehend man’s higher soul reality and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God.   

Does a bio-feedback machine that is perfectly programmed and totally attuned to the condition of the individual person, need intervention to bring about the results for which the system was specifically designed to achieve?   The journey of the soul and the very Will of Creator-God that has imbued the Laws of Nature and all of Creation with the ability to bring about the Design of God, is embodied in the words: This journey which matures, evolves and perfects the prodigal son, is further presented in the words: “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.  For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it” (Isa 55:8-11 NKJ).    

Mankind has a Destiny that he cannot escape — and contrary to what is published by organized religion, there are no shortcuts that exempt a person from fulfilling the above Word of Creator-God who enacted the Laws in the Alpha of Creation.   And because the Truth and the Reality of the Laws is totally inconsistent with carnal man’s desire for instant gratification, the authors of the scriptures were forced to preserve and conceal the esoteric knowledge of the Laws within the text of the scriptures.   And if we ask:  Why was the scriptures written in an allegorical CODE that required the application of what Jesus called the Key of Knowledge to discern the true meaning?   The above example of the plight of Giordano Bruno confirms the great truth that is presented in  an  An Inconvenient Truth.   Thus, those who are in denial of the fact that the authors of the scriptures who were condemned as heretics, were forced by the limitations of canal man’s blindness to use the body of faith-based believers as a type of mule to preserve the body of concealed truths from the eyes and perception of the Church and organic man.  

What is not understood is the fact that the scriptures are an allegory — and with the application of what Jesus called the Key of Knowledge — the inner meaning of the scriptures begins to reveal the“design [of the] laws found throughout Nature” and all of Creation.   With the objective being in understanding the underlying Divine Design, the seeker is then able to expand the “application of …reason” to fulfill the words of St. Nazianzen and bring about the necessary evolutionary expansion of the mind which makes “…us like God; so that when we have thus become like Himself, God may, to use a bold expression, hold converse with us as Gods, being united to us, and that perhaps to the same extent as He already knows those who are known to Him” (quoted athttp://BeingOfLight.com ).    And this ReUnion with Creator-God is portrayed in the return of the prodigal son to the Kingdom of his Father — which Kingdom is within each of us (see The Gate Of Eden).    And the fact that the Kingdom is equally within each of us, and every member of the human race is equally the offspring of Creator-God — is the very reason why the Deists proclaimed that “…the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them …that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” — and it is the purpose of government to protect and secure these rights.  

Gnosis, which is the Greek word for Spiritual Knowledge that is not of the earth, can only be grasped and received by those who can embody and overcome “…the designs/laws found throughout Nature” — successfully expanding the facilities of mind that enables the person to embrace what can only be defined as True Spiritual Reason.    And when properly understood, this is exactly what the historical Jesus himself accomplished, as presented in the words of Hippolytus (an opponent of the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples), when he states of their 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 above words “…the designs/laws found throughout Nature”.    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).     

What the author of http://Deism.com does not appear to understand with respect to his statement that Judaism, Christianity and Islam are “revealed” religions, is that because of the corruption of the scriptures, the adherents and believers of these religious traditions don’t understand the difference between the revealer, and the Indwelling Logos or Mind of God which will be explored in a forthcoming chapter/subheadings below.   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” (see The Ten Words).   Which means that the historical man Jesus was a man who became the Messiah/Christ when he overcame the Laws and became Anointed (Messiah/Christ) 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 ignorant to this very day.    In the above article it is 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 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.     Further, while Christians gleefully attempt to point out the prophetic predictions fulfilled by Jesus — and yet, they ignore the fact that it was predicted that the above Ten Words would be spoken to Jesus — and that the above Ten Words is attested to by Paul in the Epistles to the Hebrews, and again confirmed in the Book of Acts — demonstrates conclusively that the modern Church rejects the Jesus of the Gospels, and clings instead to the Jesus of Pagan Rome.   Moreover, 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 possessing 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).    ###@@@   

While I will present additional clarifying statements and documentation after other material is covered in the below , the encyclopedia asserts that “Deism holds that God does not intervene with the functioning of the natural world in any way, allowing it to run according to the laws of nature that he configured when he created all things” (see Deism).   And it is these  “…laws of nature” which the historical Jesus overcame, in order to become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ).    Thus, Creator-God enacted “…the laws of nature that he configured when he created all things” for the express purpose of perfecting the prodigal sons — and the historical Jesus was the first of the prodigal sons to fulfill the purpose and objective of the Laws that God Created.   In the same way that parents see to the education of their offspring, so too did Creator-God.   And in the same way that parents send their children off to school to learn, the offspring of Creator-God entered God’s School House (see DivineStrategery.com in order to bring about the necessary learning process.   And in the same way that a child’s education spans a great many months, days and years, it is necessary for the education of the soul of the prodigal son to span many lifetimes in the process of fulfilling the Laws which God “…configured when he created all things [which was[ …run according to the laws of nature”.   And that organic man does not remember his more distant past, is because he dwells in what Jesus portrayed as the “outer darkness” of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), and if he remembered his more distant past it would disrupt and even negate the learning experience that is achieved in each lifetime that the soul lives.

While the average Christian might question why the Deists hold that Creator-God does not directly intervene in the affairs of mankind — but instead relies upon the Laws “…that he [Creator-God] configured when he created all things” — when rightly understood, what is being presented in these words is exactly what Jesus portrayed  in the parable of the Prodigal Son — who, after leaving the Heavenly Kingdom and squandering away his inheritance in this, the Far Country, had to return to the Kingdom of the Father on his own accord.   And while the Father was willing to meet the son after he began his journey homeward, this was not until the son was half-way home in TheWay.   The position that God does not directly intervene in the affairs of man, is seen in the fact that even when the prodigal son suffered and was in great need, the Father at no time moved to help him in his trials.   Thus, it is written: “And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.  And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.   And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.   And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him” (Luke 15:13-16 KJV).    Why did the Father not help the suffering son?    Because the Laws had already been put into place that would not only guarantee the return of the son — but also, these Laws were enacted to perform the intended objectives of the reality that the Far Country was created to bring about — i.e., it is these very Laws that were ordained by Creator-God that evolves and perfects the soul of each individual in the manner of a spiritual bio-feedback system through the process of confronting every person with the fruit of their own past actions — i.e.,  “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   It is the evolution of mind that brings about the necessary “…heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” from the Alpha of ignorance, to the Omega of Enlightenment, that enables the prodigal son to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.   And this innate ability which is in fact an integral part of our Spiritual DNA, is inborn in each of us and brought about by God, our Source of Being, and is an integral part of “…the laws of nature that he configured when he created all things”.     And it is important to understand that the core Deists — like all True Gnostics — understood the journey of the soul.
