C3.12. The Law Received From Angels — The Two Creation Accounts

Because the Deists understood both the Laws and the purpose of what was being conveyed in the two allegorical Creation accounts in Genesis, they understood that in the same way that the Father did not come rushing to the aid of his prodigal son when his son was in great need and being exploited by what Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country, neither does Creator-God tweak the Laws that were put into effect prior to God Resting on the Spiritual Sabbath.   Faith-based believers not only fail to understand the reason there is two Creation accoutns in Genesis, but neither do they understand the true spiritual reality of the Sabbath.   Creator-God’s work was completed in what is allegorically portrayed as the Sabbath — and being Complete, there was no more work to be accomplished.   Therefore, not only does the Genesis account portray Creator-God’s work as being Completed on the Sabbath, but what is presented as God in the second Creation account, portrays God in a different name.   God’s Presence therefore, in all that follows the initial Creation account, is in fact the movement of God’s Laws and the Natural Forces of Creation that was put into effect — and this is confirmed in the disciples statement that allegorically, the Jews were a people who had “…received the law by the direction of angels and have not kept it” (Acts 7:53 NKJV).  But what does this mean?  Allegorically, the angels are representative of the personification of the Laws — so it wasn’t that a supernatural being handed the Law over to Moses — but rather, that in the development of mind signified in the allegory of the text, the elevated consciousness enabled the mind to see, perceive and understand the higher reality of the Laws that organic man is blind to.   That, as Paul states, they “…have not kept it”, is because they have failed to bring about the Completion of the Sabbath.   In further making reference to the Law, Paul writes: “For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment” (Heb 2:2 NIV).

When the Laws that were put into effect are understood, perhaps the best way to portray these Laws that the Deists portrayed as the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God, is as a Spiritual Bio-Feedback machine that dynamically evolves each soul to perfection by intimately responding to our every action, reaction and failure to act — and responds appropriately when the time is opportune for our greatest learning and advancement.   That these Laws were put into action in the Alpha of Creation — and are the Perfect Works of Creator-God that is Dynamically Designed to movement of man — is a reality of the Laws that the core Deists attempted unsuccessfully to convey to the theists and organized religion.

The punishment punishment that Paul makes reference to, is the effect of the Laws returning to each person 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).   Peter states of the Two Princes (see The Double Edge Sword Of The Law And The Left Hand Of God): “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 thus, when understood, it is the Left Hand of God that is the Power of Correction — and returns to each person the substance of their own actions — and on a secondary note, the substance of their thoughts and desires.   Therefore it can be said “As a man thinketh in hes heart, so is he” (Prov 23:7).    And his experiences of life are limited by the substance of the thoughts which he entertains.

In the same manner, a person of wisdom knows that there is a Left and a Right to all things — and the Left Hand of the scriptures is the written word of the scriptures which Paul portrayed as the “letter that killeth” (2 Cor 3:6), while the Right Hand is the inner meaning that lies concealed beneath the allegorical cloak of the texts.   And in the same way that the Prince and Power of Correction lies with the Left Hand — i.e., the Left Hand of God (see The Written Word Portrays The Left Hand Of God), which is explained in greater detail in a later subheading entitled Time And The Left Hand Of God. — the natural organic people of the earth who dwell under the dominion of the Citizen of the Far Country — i.e., those who have yet to put on the required “wedding garment” and come to TheCall — remain blind to both the Spirit, and the inner meaning of the scriptures.    Jesus portrayed this organic human blindness as the “outer darkness” of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) —  which parallels Plato’s account of The Cave (see Plato’s Cave) — and it is representative of the natural condition of the Laws which limit each person to the thought-vibrations of their heart and mind.    On the other hand, those who perpetrate evil actions on their brothers and sisters, dwell in that condition which is maintained by the Laws in what Jesus portrayed as The Prison.

The Apostle Peter warns that the enigmas of the scriptures which he portrays as the “mystery of the books with the power to deceive”, were intentionally inserted into the body of the text as a test to the reader.   Man, whose condition is maintained by the Laws in accord with the thoughts of the heart, is tested throughout the scriptures to see if he has prepared himself to be of a greater vision and understanding of what he perceives out of the written word.   Speaking of Simon Magus’ ability to deceive the people Peter is quoted as stating in the Homilies: “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.”

With respect to what Peter portrays as “…the falsehoods of the Scriptures”Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, 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”  And what this means is that when the reader encounters “…an evil word against the God” — and believes the allegorical falsehood — then this person has failed the test, and his heart and mind remains hardened by the Laws which return to each person the thoughts of their own heart.

Peter portrays the Gentiles as being easily deceived, because they are accustomed to believing bad things about God.   Thus, the god of the Old Testament has been insightfully portrayed as resembling the Wizard of OZ — i.e., a magical nut case behind the curtain who liked physical circumcision, genocide of non-Jews including killing every woman & child — a god who made man, then repented he ever made man and killed everyone on earth but Noah’s and his immediate family — a god who kills a man for trying to steady the ARK, a voodoo god who loves animal sacrifice and blood sprinkling, a god who sacrifices his son instead of himself. The scriptures are very clear, it’s all allegorical about the Kingdom within.   The reader is warned  in John 6:63, that reading the scriptures literally has no profit at all (“the flesh profiteth nothing”) and leaves the reader spiritually bankrupt : “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life”.

The encyclopedia names two of the most influential founding fathers of the United States and presents the fact that “…Benjamin Franklin, believed in reincarnation or resurrection.”  and then states that “Others such as Thomas Paine were agnostic about the immortality of the soul: ‘I trouble not myself about the manner of future existence. I content myself with believing, even to positive conviction, that the power that gave me existence is able to continue it, in any form and manner he pleases, either with or without this body; and it appears more probable to me that I shall continue to exist hereafter than that I should have had existence, as I now have, before that existence began’ —Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason, Part I, Recapitulation.    Because the encyclopedia authors do not themselves understand the teaching of Jesus on the higher reality of the soul (see Gospel of Thomas Saying 82), the encyclopedia author does not understand why Paine was not concerned with the immortality of the soul as would be commonly understood.   Paine understood the higher reality of the soul — and understood that the higher soul-self is eternal.   In understanding that each of us is an embryonic image of our higher soul-self, Thomas Paine was concerned with the work of this life — i.e., the expansion and required next phase of birth of the image that is implanted in the body-vessel at conception (explored in Soul Image).

To recap an important point: In the 17th and 18th centuries, Spiritual Gnostics were called Deists — and when rightfully understood, their objectives were exactly the same as presented in the above 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”.    And it is this “…heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” which was the essence of early Spiritual Christianity, was and is in fact the core objective of Deism as defined above and demonstrated in the words: “…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.”    The Deists and Masons surrounded themselves with symbols of higher consciousness — and in the objective of enlightening their understanding of what they perceived and comprehended, they developed their mind with depth and balance.
