The Teachings of TheWay
The teachings of Yeshua/Jesus which are known as TheWay was a purely spiritual religion -- practiced by a purely spiritual people known as Essenes, Nazirenes and Ebionites. These sacred teachings became impure when placed in the hands of the Gentiles, and totally corrupted under Constantine and Pagan Rome. What Yeshua taught is that the Kingdom is within us, and we must enter in at the "narrow gate" while still alive in the physical body in order to enter into Life. Because the 4th century pagan Christians murdered the spiritual Christians, modern believers no longer comprehend the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel. In the manner of the Jewish sects of the Sadducees and Pharisees, they look outwardly for the Kingdom to come upon the earth -- an event which Yeshua said would never happen (Lk 17:20-21) -- instead of picking up their own cross and following in TheWay by imitating the life of Yeshua.
The Essence of TheWay
Yeshua/Jesus did not come to promote belief in the Messiah/Christ - neither did he come to promote the worship of Messiah/Christ - Yeshua came to teach the people TheWay to become Messiah/Christ, and fulfill the vision of a Kingdom of Priests and a Holy Nation of Anointed (Messiah/Christ) Disciples who are set aside for the service of the Most High God that Yeshua taught was the Father of all of mankind. But the majority of the Roman and Greek followers who were too Pagan to embrace the teachings of Yeshua, were not interested in a life of genuine change and spiritual transformation, so they made Jesus their God so they didn't have to pick up their own cross and follow in TheWay. Thus, the Church itself betrayed and crucified Messiah/Christ when it immersed itself in the way of the heathen, and worshiped the messenger instead of imitating the pattern and example that Yeshua set as the required standard for all those who called upon the name of the Lord. The Good News is that once you understand and are willing to live in accordance with the Original teachings of the New Covenant, the Promise is that you will Know the Truth for yourself as you are permitted entrance into the Kingdom within you (Lk 17:20-21).
Nazirene Or Nazarene?
What Is The Difference?
The Disciple of the Lord is always a Nazirene -- i.e., the People of the Vow -- a Consecrated and Anointed Chosen One of the Lord who is set apart from the world. Only those who are of the Vow of the Nazirene can know the Mysteries of God and the inner meaning of the Law/Torah that is the Keys of Knowledge that opens the Inner Door to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.
The Living Scripture
The Written Letter That Killeth?
The Torah, New Testament, And Qu'ran Are All Shadows Of The True Word Of God
Jews, Christians And Muslims All Reject Spiritual Wisdom
All Are Equally Lost
of the number of times that carnal men are warned that God is a Spirit,
and can only be sought through man's indwelling spiritual nature (Jn
4:24), the great mass of believers perpetually reject the spirit and and
turn to the written word of the scriptures in
pursuit of the "letter that killeth"
(2 Cor 3:6). Perhaps the most profound example of
the inability of the natural carnal mind to even begin to grasp man's own
higher soul and spiritual reality is provided in the words of Paul who
said of the baptized, totally committed believers as Corinth:
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”
Cor 1:4-7 NIV).
the natural carnally minded believers had trouble in comprehending -- a
reality that continues to plague Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Atheists, and
the people of all religious faiths today -- is the reality that the
religion preached by Paul was one of Spiritual Transformation.
Paul warned those he preached to about the "letter
their religious ideas and doctrines were merely elementary.
Paul attempted to convey this higher reality to believers who were unable
to comprehend the Mysteries of God, because he was a man who was not only
enlightened about the Kingdom within (see Gate
Of Eden), but had himself been permitted entrance into the Kingdom --
as seen in his words that every
Christian who beseeches the Lord today to enlighten their understanding,
is in fact asking to see and hear “…things so
astounding that they are beyond a man's power to describe or put in
words…” -- and after they gaze upon these mysteries, what
they have witnessed will be of such a profound nature that they will “…not
[be] allowed to tell them to others” (2 Cor 12:4 TLB).
Why? Why will they not be able to convey to the believers in
the Church what they have seen? Because in not having evolved
through the process of spiritual transformation, they are still of a
carnal mind -- a mindset that Paul warns: The...
mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor
indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God...
For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit
you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are
led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God”
(Rom 8:7-8;13 NKJ).
When Paul warned that he could only speak to the believers at Corinth as "...men of flesh, as to babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 NAS), what he was warning was that “Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil” (Heb 5:13-14 NIV). And because they are yet carnal -- not having undergone the process of spiritual transformation -- Paul warned that “And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know” (1 Cor 8:2 NKJ). For if man could simply open the scriptures and be able to discern the Truth, Jesus would not have said of his disciples: “For I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it” (Matt 13:17 NIV). Why did Jesus say these words? Because the majority of Jews who attempted to read the scriptures literally, and observe the oracles of the Word in a ritualized outward manner, were the counterfeit believers whose carnal mindset had spiritually disenfranchised them from the Kingdom within. The modern doctrinal teaching that the followers of Christ are under the law of grace, and this grace has absolved them from fulfilling the Royal Law of God because Jesus has done everything for them -- and so, Christians are free to live in any manner that they see fit so long as they believe and have faith, is simply not within the framework of what Paul wrote -- as seen in the words: “What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?... Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness. For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey -- whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?” (Rom 6:1-2; 6:12-16 NIV). With regard to what we call sin, the requirement was set forth by Jesus himself when he said: “sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee” (John 5:14 KJV). Speaking of those Christians who again turn to the things of this world after beginning to embrace the gospel of Christ, the Apostle Peter makes reference to the scriptures and states: “But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire” (2 Pet 2:22 KJV).
You Can Know The Truth
You Can Know All The Mysteries Of The Kingdom Within You
But Only If You Pick Up Your Own Cross
Follow In TheWay
And Be Born Of Spirit Through The Process Of Spiritual Transformation!
Faith meant an entirely different thing to the Apostle Paul than what is being preached from our pulpits today. Faith and belief meant that you live a spiritually consecrated life and seek the Kingdom within. Paul correctly warned that a ritual observance of the Law (works) cannot save you -- and neither can a philosophical belief in Messiah/Christ. This fact can be seen in Paul’s commandment to all who would call themselves a Christian to "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV). To the degree that Paul warned: “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV). In order to bring about the next stage of soul-birth and open the "narrow gate" to the Kingdom within, Paul warned that it was necessary to overcome one's lower nature to the degree that the disciple of TheWay is able to "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5 NIV). To mortify the deeds of the body takes work -- a great amount of work -- and this work cannot be accomplished through a static faith and philosophical belief. Thus, the problem is that these biblical commandments have absolutely nothing in common with the doctrine of faith that was developed by Martin Luther in the Middle-ages -- and even less than the static philosophical faith that is preached in our churches today.
Because Higher Reality Is Beyond Natural Human Comprehension
You Will View The Mysteries Of God As
“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). And because you have yet to walk in TheWay, and embrace the process of spiritual transformation, these words are absolutely true in your life today -- regardless of whether you call yourself a Jew, a Christian, a Muslim, or any other religious or philosophical school of thought.

Christians Cling To An Old Covenant Mindset Of The Letter That Killeth

they worship the God of Yeshua (Jesus).
teachings of The Way had absolutely nothing in common with a church or
synagogue where priests, rabbis and other clerics performed rituals to
absolve the people of their refusal to live in accordance with the Word of
God. The teachings of The Way was a path which the disciple walked
that permitted him access into the indwelling Kingdom of God. That
modern Christianity has lost this vision and severed themselves from the
direct communication which is given to the disciple of Truth, is easily
seen in the schismatic nature of the present day church.
If the Apostle Paul were with us today he would condemn the modern
Christian for the exact same reasons that he condemned the believers at
appeal to you”, writes the Apostle, “…that
there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united
in mind and thought” (1 Cor 1:10NIV).
we fail to realize today is the fact that there can be no divisions and
sects in a Living Religion -- where there is One Leader and One Teacher
that all genuine disciples have access to.
By Divine Decree, the followers of Yeshua/Jesus were to have no
divisions, sects, or independent opinions among the believers because the
Lord promised that each “…shall hear my
voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd” (John
10:16 KJV). It is for
this reason the Apostle cautioned Titus to “Warn
a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have
nothing to do with him. You may be sure that such a man is warped and
sinful; he is self-condemned” (Titus 3:10-11 NIV).
The Greek meaning of the word divisive is “one
who promotes a sect”.
It was for this reason the religion of the Messiah/Christ can have
no worldly name, and this is seen in the fact that it was called “The
was so adamantly opposed to manmade schisms and carnal opinions that he
chastised the believers at Corinth that they were not men of the spirit --
as was evidenced that they had divisions among them.
He explained that the carnal, or “natural
man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are
foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are
spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 KJV); and informs them
that they are too “carnal, and walk as men”
(1 Cor 3:3 KJV) to open the inner door of the mind and learn directly from
the Lord via the spirit. From
his perspective, the very existence of these divisions was proof the
believers at Corinth were too carnal to experience direct communication
with the Lord -- which opening of the inner door to the spirit was the
whole essence of New Covenant theology.
about schisms and divisions, the Church Father Turtillian writes: “On
this point, however, we dwell no longer, since it is the same Paul who, in
his Epistle to the Galatians, counts 'heresies' among 'the sins of the
flesh,' who also intimates to Titus, that 'a man who is a heretic' must be
'rejected after the first admonition,' on the ground that 'he that is such
is perverted, and committeth sin, as a self-condemned man.' Indeed, in
almost every epistle, when enjoining on us (the duty) of avoiding false
doctrines, he sharply condemns heresies. Of these the practical effects
are false doctrines, called in Greek heresies, a word used in the sense of
that choice which a man makes when he either teaches them (to others) or
takes up with them (for himself). For this reason it is that he calls the
heretic self-condemned, because he has himself chosen that for which he is
the gospel preached by Paul, heresy is considered a “sin
of the flesh”, because schisms and divisions are the result
of natural man clinging to ideas of a carnal nature.
Why are these baptized and committed Christians plagued by schisms and
divisions? Because they only call upon the Lord with their lips,
while failing to do as the Apostle states by following in The Way and “Put
to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature”
(Col 3:5 NIV).
must therefore turn from the understanding of the flesh, or in the words
of the Apostle: “For to be carnally minded is
death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” (Rom
8:6 KJV). The religion
of Christ was one of the spirit -- and Paul taught the Gentile believers
not to look to the historical man Yeshua/Jesus, but rather the indwelling
Spiritual Living Messiah/Christ as their savior and revealer of truth: “Therefore
from now on we recognize no man according to the flesh; even though we
have known Christ according o the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no
longer” (2 Cor 5:16 NAS).
This Spiritual Messiah/Christ, over the historical Messiah/Christ
in the flesh, was what biblical scholar Rudolf Bultmann was speaking of
when he concluded that the “…Christian faith
is, and should be, comparatively uninterested in the historical Jesus and
centered instead on the transcendent Christ” (Encyclopedia
Britannica, 1998 electronic edition).
In the eyes of Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles, the church of our present day has been turned out of The Way. In a spiritual religion there can be no schisms and divisions, which are “sins of the flesh” -- but rather, spiritual unity must prevail because the true disciple of Yeshua has opened the door to the indwelling Kingdom, and is the student of “the true light which... enlightens every man” (John 1:9 NAS). In this respect, the perspective of the Apostle Paul is very clear -- i.e., one cannot cling to the “Christ according to the flesh”, and be in harmony with the Living Christ that calls to us from beyond the door -- the transcendent Messiah/Christ -- who calls out to the genuine disciple from the other side of the inner strait gate that leads to the Kingdom.
Christians, Jews And Muslims
All Reject The New Covenant
The true Church of the New Covenant is Spiritual and
Living, it is defined in the words: “I will put
my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their
God, and they will be my people. No longer will a man teach his neighbor,
or a man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' because they will all know
me, from the least of them to the greatest” (Heb 8:10-11 NIV).
The people of the New Covenant have neither a leader, church, nor a
teacher in this world -- wherewith, they are not dependent upon the
instruction of their brothers -- they do not seek the Knowledge of God in
the written words of the scriptures -- i.e.,
"not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives
life" (NIV) --
because they all are taught directly from God. What the Bible states, then, is that we must find the
Word of God beyond the carnal barrier in our mind.
Those people who cling to interpretations of the scriptures as a foundation of their beliefs -- embracing manmade doctrines derived from the written word of the scriptures, are functioning in an Old Covenant mindset -- even when they claim to believe in Yeshua! Paul stated: "He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant -- not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life" (NIV). The objective and purpose of the New Covenant teachings of Yeshua and TheWay, is to prepare the believer for discipleship, and the disciple to undergo the spiritual transformation necessary to learn and be taught directly from God -- i.e., "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me" (John 6:45 NKJ). By releasing the mind from the shackles of the doctrines of men which are based upon carnal interpretations of the written word of the scriptures -- through the living of a consecrated life in dedication to the Royal Law of the Most High -- and the opening of the mind to learn directly from God. Christians, Jews and Muslims all fail to understand the spiritual essence of their own respective religions -- and they look to other men to teach and guide them. Yet, Yeshua condemned the manner in which we seek God -- i.e., "But you, do not be called 'Rabbi'; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren. Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ" (Matt 23:8-10 NKJ). The disciple has only One Teacher -- “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit” (1 Cor 2:10 KJV).
Christians -- like their Jewish and Muslim brothers -- are today lost and shackled to the doctrines of men, because in the manner of the Pharisees and scribes who Yeshua condemned, they have thrown away the Keys of Knowledge, and obstructed the "narrow path" that leads to the Kingdom within (see Gate Of Eden). The teachings of Yeshua and TheWay of the New Covenant is the path that opens the inner door to the Kingdom and permits the disciple to learn from what the Apostle Peter and the disciples portrayed as The True Prophet. This is presented to us in the writings of Peter's disciple Clement -- a writing rejected by the fourth century Roman Church -- where he said that the genuine Jew/Christian must learn only from the True Prophet as to the correct meaning of the scriptures and the revelation of the Word. “Hence, O beloved Clement", proclaims Peter, “if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples”. These words -- i.e., that you not only can, but you MUST learn the things of God from Him alone, or from one of his genuine disciples -- are as true today as when Peter originally spoke them to Clement in the first century. They are based upon the New Covenant teaching that Yeshau/Jesus came to teach the Truth, and this Truth cannot be altered or defiled by either an impostor church, or the doctrines of men. Therefore, built into the essence of the Word is a means by which the truly faithful disciple throughout any and every age in the history of man is able to learn the Truth directly from the Lord Himself. What this further means is that even during that timeframe when the church was plundered into the very depths of darkness and despair, the truly faithful followers of the Light were taught the truth directly from the One Source of all Truth. The true disciple of Yeshua has opened the door to the indwelling Kingdom, and is the student of “the true light which... enlightens every man” (John 1:9 NAS).
While Christians think they are led by the spirit, the whole foundation of their doctrines of belief was imported into the church by the very Pagan Roman Emperor Constantine. Thus, to those who call upon the name of the Lord today, the Lord has warned: "Those who guide this people mislead them, and those who are guided are led astray" (Isa 9:16 NIV).
Yeshua warns that there is only One Teacher, and all
of us are the sons and daughters of the One Heavenly Father.
That the true disciple must learn only from the One Teacher (Mt 23:8), and
reject the doctrines of men, can be demonstrated using the first century
witness known as the Recognitions of Clement, where St. Clement
quotes the teachings of the Apostle Peter.
In chapter 59, under the heading of The True Prophet, Clement
writes: “But I would not have you think, that
in saying this I take away the power of judging concerning things; but I
give counsel that no one walk through devious places, and rush into errors
without end. And therefore I advise not only wise men, but indeed all men
who have a desire of knowing what is advantageous to them, that they seek
after the true Prophet; for it is He alone who knoweth all things, and who
knoweth what and how every man is seeking. For He is within the mind of
every one of us, but in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God
and His righteousness, He is inoperative; but He works in those who seek
after that which is profitable to their souls, and kindles in them the
light of knowledge. Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not
find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other. But He
is soon found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth,
and whose souls are not taken possession of by wickedness. For He is
present with those who desire Him in the innocence of their spirits, who
bear patiently, and draw sighs from the bottom of their hearts through
love of the truth; but He deserts malevolent minds, because as a prophet
He knows the thoughts of every one. And therefore let no one think that he
can find Him by his own wisdom, unless, as we have said, he empty his mind
of all wickedness, and conceive a pure and faithful desire to know Him.
For when any one has so prepared himself, He Himself as a prophet, seeing
a mind prepared for Him, of His own accord offers Himself to his
What does Peter say to us in these words? That the
True Prophet “is within the mind of every one
of us”. This
concept is Spiritual -- and is the foundation of the Living Church that
the Lord inaugurated.
warned his followers not to go to a teacher or religious authority
in this world -- even when that teacher or authority says that he knows
the Messiah/Christ. What
is very clear in these words which are parallel and in harmony with the
Bible, is the followers of Yeshua were not to learn from men -- who
themselves do not know -- and in true Spiritual fashion, they were only to
go to the Source of all Knowledge, the True Prophet.
The Apostle Paul wrote that the baptized believers at Corinth did not know
the Gospel of God, and could not be taught the Mysteries and true
Christian teachings because they were too carnal to receive them.
This great dilemma that Paul wrote about -- and has been
continually ignored by the majority of Christians throughout history --
was explained by Peter when his disciple Clement wrote his warning to
believers: “…and if you do not find Him,
expect not that you shall learn anything from any other”.
From a first century Christian perspective, there is only one way that you can learn and know the truth, and that is through your own dormant spiritual nature. “Expect not that you shall learn anything”, says Peter, if you attempt to learn from the doctrines of men -- even when these men are the leaders of your church, synagogue, mosque, or temple. Why? Because Yeshua himself commanded: “But you, do not be called 'Rabbi'; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren” (Matt 23:8 NKJ). Therefore, whoever will teach you -- except by example and the manifestation of the Light in their own lives -- from the perspective of the New Covenant, is a disciple of the antichrist.
disciple can only learn from the True Prophet, when they release their
minds from the shackles of the doctrines of men -- open their minds to the
One Teacher within -- purify the body to make it a fit Temple for the Holy
Spirit to indwell -- and live a consecrated life dedicated to the Royal
Law of the Most High.
Peter embodies the very essence of the genuine
teachings of The Way in the words: “But He is
soon found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth, and
whose souls are not taken possession of by wickedness. For He is present
with those who desire Him in the innocence of their spirits, who bear
patiently, and draw sighs from the bottom of their hearts through love of
The Cause Of Human Suffering
when individual men and women begin to seek Truth and Knowledge, can human
suffering be done away with. Government is not the answer --
it is one of the major problems. Traditional Church religion
cannot provide you the answers -- because it remains elementary, it is an obstacle to finding
Truth. Mankind is ignorant of higher reality because his
educational institutions alienate our children from man's Universal Source
of Knowledge. Our present-day culture shackles mankind to the
abyss of suffering and despair. As the prodigal son/daughter
of the One Heavenly Father-God, you have been sojourning in this, the "far
country... outer darkness" since the dawn of time as we
understand it -- and you will continue to dwell in this self-imposed exile
from your own higher soul and spiritual reality, until you begin the
process of change and spiritual transformation. Your life is
the result of your own past desires, thoughts and deeds, and you are
presently creating your future. Further, you will continue to dwell
in this realm in subsequent lives, until you embrace the teachings of
TheWay which Yeshua/Jesus taught, pick up your own cross, and follow the pattern of return -- as
stated in the Gospel of the Nazirenes: "Jesus
sat in the porch of the temple, and some came to learn His doctrine, and
one said to Him, Master, what do you teach concerning life? And
He said to them, Blessed
are they who suffer many experiences, for they will be made perfect
through suffering; they will be as the angels of God in heaven and will
die no more. Neither will they be born any more, for death and birth have
no more dominion over them.
They who have suffered and have overcome
will be made pillars of the temple of my God, and they will go out no
more. I say to you, except you be born again
of water and of fire, you cannot see the kingdom of God."
This same basic statement can also be found
in the Book of Revelations is the words: "Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more
out" (Rev 3:12
KJV). And this ignored statement in the Revelation of John is
further elaborated on in the Gospel of the Nazirenes where it is taught: "As
Jesus sat by the west of the temple with his disciples, behold there
passed some carrying one that was dead, to burial, and a certain one said
to Him, Master, if a man die, shall he live again? He answered and
said, I am the resurrection and the life, I am the good, the beautiful,
the true; if a man believe in me he shall not die, but live eternally. As
in Adam all are bound to cycles of rebirth, so in the Messiah shall all be
made alive. Blessed are the dead who die in me, and are made perfect in my
image and likeness, for they rest from their labors and their works do
follow them. They have overcome evil, and are
made pillars in the temple of my God, and they go out no more,
for they rest in the eternal. For them that persist in evil there is
no rest, but they go out and in, and suffer correction for ages, till they
are made perfect. But for them that have done good and attained to
perfection, there is endless rest and they go into life everlasting. They
rest in the eternal. Over them the repeated death and birth have no
power, for them the wheel of the eternal revolves no more, for they have
attained to the center, where is eternal rest, and the center of all
things is God" And
while this many sound strange to the modern Christian, Yeshua commanded: "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is
perfect" (Matt 5:48 KJV). And
that as the Offspring of God -- i.e., the prodigal sons/daughters -- you
have this power to grow to perfection and be just like Yeshua, your elder
brother, is the reason why Yeshua commanded to "And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in
heaven" (Matt 23:9 KJV). And this is
confirmed when Yeshua said: "I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your
God" (John 20:17 KJV). That each of us is the
prodigal son/daughter who went out from our Father's Kingdom and traveled
into this, the "far
country... outer darkness", has been concealed to
us by the adoption of the doctrines of the Roman Emperor Constantine which
mainstream Christians continue to cling to this very day. And
because many believers pray and beseech the Lord to reveal to them the
spiritual essence of the teachings of Yeshua and the Kingdom of Light, I
was sent back into this life in order to provide those who seek
discipleship with a pure and consecrated heart and mind, the knowledge of
what they must do to return Home to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination (see
The Universal Path
Of Love, Life, And Knowledge
That Opens The "Narrow Gate" To The Kingdom Within!
The Journey Of TheWay, presented herein by the man known as the Long Island Mystic who in a previous life lived as the Brother Of Jesus, is the most universal message of love and interfaith peace and revelation known to man today. It demonstrates that God is the Father of all men and women -- that prejudice and violence towards others has no place in religion -- and the universal journey of all people as the prodigal sons/daughters of the One Heavenly Father whose Destiny is to Dwell in the Kingdom of God. My brother Yeshua who most people call Jesus (Isis-Zeus), is our elder brother who fulfilled the Law within himself, and thereby became the pattern for all of God Sons and Daughters to return from this, the far country, back to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination. The Greek word Christ is synonymous with the Hebrew word Messiah, and in English these words mean the Anointed -- i.e., the Anointing of the mind is a Power sent from God to those who fulfill the Law within themselves and live a Consecrated Life. The Bible originally taught that Yeshua became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism in the Jordan (see The Challenge) when the voice of the Father said to him from heaven: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee". The Roman Emperor Constantine altered the scriptures, and forced the worship of Jesus upon the church by murdering the genuine followers of Yeshua (see The Death Of Christianity). But our Heavenly Father has heard the prayers and supplications for Truth and Light from His Children who have for a long time dwelt in the "outer darkness" of this, the "far country", and has sent the original Disciples of Yeshua back into the world to guide those who desire to leave this realm of separation, and return Home to the Kingdom through the "narrow gate" within them.
If you seek the Truth of the Spirit over manmade church doctrine, then your Father will give you the Manna from Heaven which is the Knowledge of TheWay and the Bread of Life. And if you live this Knowledge -- consecrate your body-mind -- and live a life that is spiritual and fulfills the Royal Law of the Most High -- then you will receive the Spirit that will teach you the Mysteries of God that could only be revealed to those who were the most faithful of Disciples and could reside in the House with the Lord. It is there, in the House, that you will receive the Living Waters that quenches all thirst -- and the Living Bread/Manna that Sustains the Genuine Seeker as they walk in TheWay on the return journey to the Kingdom of Light.
The Light Of Yeshua
The Light that Yeshua brought into the world was snuffed out in the 4th century when the very carnal element of the Church entered into a covenant relationship with the Roman Emperor Constantine -- and though this Light was partially rekindled in the Reformation, the time has come where the Light must once again be brought forth in order to guide the lost children of this world into the Kingdom of Light. Thus, the original Essene/Ebionite Disciples of Yeshua have been sent back into this world in order to reveal the Knowledge of TheWay to the children who dwell in darkness -- and that if they seek the Kingdom and live in the Light of the Royal Law in word, thought and deed -- and consecrate their body-Temple, making it a fit dwelling place for the Logos to indwell -- that the Lord will receive them, and open the inner door within them that permits them to enter the Kingdom. "Do not cease seeking day or night, and do not let yourselves relax until you have found all the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Light, which will purify you and make you into Pure Light and lead you into the Kingdom of Light" (Gospel of Faith-Wisdom). Yeshua did not come to tell the children about the Kingdom -- he came to guide them into the Kingdom while they are still in the body-Temple: "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it."(Matt 7:13-14 NKJ). But because the Church was overcome by the darkness, and threw away the Key of Knowledge, the lost children have suffered greatly in the abyss of this world. Thus, TheCall has gone out -- and the Voice of the Lord has sent His Servants forth -- and those who hear His Call, will be invited to enter the Kingdom of Light which is within you (see http://GateOfEden.com ).
There is conflict in the world because darkness reigns -- and the god of this world rules the hearts of men. Each man goes in accordance with his own way -- following counterfeit shepherds who peddle Messiah/Christ for profit and greed. At their essence, there is no difference between the religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam -- and the conflict and prejudice that exists between the three, is purely manmade. As someone who in previous lives intimately knew the man historically known as Jesus (Yeshua) today -- lived with him, walked with him, talked with him, and was taken into the Kingdom by him -- let me strongly convey to you, the reader, that no church, synagogue, mosque or temple created by man today, represents the teachings of the man known as the Son of God. Because those who claim to teach and preach in the name of the Lord have not embraced the love and acceptance that is required to be a disciple of Yeshua, all who make claim to be believers have been bound and shackled by the chains of ignorance that continues to enslave them in the dark abyss of the dungeons of this world. Sadly, in our own time, religion does more to alienate man from his Creator God, than any other force on earth. Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding of the Universal Truths of the Gospel and the Mysteries of God, can only be given to those who seek Truth over doctrine and desire to be possessed by the Light! And while each church, synagogue, mosque and temple has been given a fragment of truth that has been bestowed upon them by the Lord as a starting point in their spiritual journey in TheWay -- i.e., a seed that has been Sown by the Sower from On High (see The Sower And The Seed) -- because each has permitted themselves to be overcome with prejudice, arrogance, and condemnation of their fellow man, each in turn has bound themselves over to the god of this world who enslaves them in the abyss of the "outer darkness... far country"! And while they repeat words from the Holy Books in the manner of the Pharisees, they know not the Spirit, the Truth, Light and TheWay.
Every event in life is for a reason -- i.e., there are no accidents or chance occurrences -- and all that we experience is the result of our own previous actions. If homosexuality, vice and the multitude of what is called the sins of the flesh are ungodly, then so too is the spiritual ignorance that envelops our religious and secular institutions today! Yet each faction, sect and philosophy finds fault with that of their brothers, while ignoring the absolute blindness and partisan/sectarian ignorance they each in turn perceive in the world. And while it is true that my Brother Yeshua/Jesus would not in any way condone the unholy works of the sinner, his greatest condemnation would be for the religious and spiritual leaders whose ways of ignorance guide the people in the way of the abyss of darkness. Look in the mirror -- and know that whatever your present station in this world is, you have been the author of your own conditions of birth and life. If you are poor, then you have made yourself poor. If you are victimized and challenged by the adversities of life, then know that you are the author of all that you have experienced. God did not make you a sinner -- a victim -- a homosexual -- or any other condition that you take exception to! Why? Because each person is the author of the life they are now living -- and you are presently creating your future with your thoughts, desires, actions and deeds.
What Happened In Jericho?
It has often been speculated that an important teaching was removed by the Church of the Roman Empire when Yeshua went to Jericho. Thus, our corrupted Bibles at present read: "And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho..." (Mark 10:46 KJV). So what happened in Jericho? In the Gospel of the Nazirenes we can see that Christians -- and especially all religious leaders -- are not only held to a higher standard than the sinners they often condemn, but that each person is returned back into life in accordance with the deeds they have committed (reincarnation) -- i.e., "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap" (Gal 6:7 KJV). Thus, the 59th Chapter of the Nazirene Gospel contains much that offended the Church -- and was thus, removed:
wrote with respect to the entry-level doctrines of the Church today:
let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity, not
laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of
faith in God, instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the
resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment”
(Heb 6:1-2 NIV).
In First Corinthians Paul portrays the
In First Corinthians Paul portrays the"milk" of the Gospel as "Christ, and him crucified" -- which he stated was necessary because the natural mind of man will look upon his own higher spiritual reality as "foolishness". The teachings of Yeshua and TheWay were spiritual, and it was necessary for the believer to undergo the process of spiritual transformation so they could be taught through their own indwelling soul and spiritual natures -- i.e., “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit” (1 Cor 2:10 KJV). And speaking of those who attempted to learn of God through the written word, Paul stated: "He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant-- not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life" (NIV). And why must the believer go on to maturity and embrace spiritual transformation? In the words of the Church Father Origen: “And as we teach, moreover, that 'wisdom will not enter into the soul of a base man, nor dwell in a body that is involved in sin’”. But because the modern church continues to cling to the doctrines of the Roman Emperor Constantine and Pagan Rome, this necessary spiritual transformation is unable to come about in the life of the believer. Thus, Paul stated: “For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil” (Heb 5:12-14 NAS).
people are destroyed for lack of knowledge..."
(Hosea 4:6 KJV)
Christians believe they are saved, but so too did the Pharisees. Christians proclaim that they are the true people of God, but so too did the Pharisees. Christians claim that once they are saved, the Lord will never leave them -- and this proclamation is based upon the words: "For He Himself has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you'" (Heb 13:5 NKJ) -- but these words were spoken first to the Jews. And in the same way that Yeshua/Jesus, as well as those who are sent from God were all rejected by the Pharisees, so too does the modern Christian reject the Lord and His emissaries. Why? Because like the Pharisees, Christians have embraced a series of manmade doctrines and traditions that have alienated them from the knowledge of the Kingdom, and spiritually disenfranchised them from the very essence of Yeshua's teachings of TheWay. And in the same way that when Yeshua attempted to convey to the Pharisees that the Living Word was Spiritual, and could only be embraced and perceived in the Spirit -- and because they were carnal, and thus did not comprehend his words -- they condemned him as demon possessed and a heretic -- so too do the Christians today who have embraced the carnal doctrines of men and rejected the Spirit perceive those who are sent to them by the Lord as demon possessed.
Christianity, Judaism and Islam are today threatened by the emergence of Spiritual Religion. The New Testament is an extension of the Essene portrayal of the sons of darkness vs the Sons of Light -- i.e., institutional vs spiritual. The leaders of the Pharisees killed Yeshua/Jesus, because he opposed their system of institutionalized religion. Constantine killed the Ebionite/Nazirenes and the Gnostic Christians, because they opposed his secular institutionalized church. The Muslims have killed the Sufis, because they reject the spiritual essence of the Qu'ran. Even today, the Jews destroy the Messiah within them -- the Christians crucify the Christ within them -- and the Muslims kill the True Prophet within them -- because they reject the spiritual essence of their own respective religions, while embracing the secular/institutional.
As demonstrated below, the Promised Land of Moses, the Kingdom declared by Yeshua, and the Distant Mosque in the Spiritual Mecca that Jews, Christians and Muslims are required to seek out, exist within the higher inner reality of mankind. The carnal Jews killed Yeshua -- the Christians killed the Genuine Disciples of Yeshua -- and the Muslims killed the Sufis -- because they told them that the Kingdom of God, Spiritual Jerusalem/Mecca, the True Temple/Distant Mosque, is within -- and can only be entered by those who live a consecrated life set apart from the ways, mindset, culture and thinking of this world, and journey in TheWay within. Thus, each Jew must pass through the Red Sea, travail through the wilderness guided by the Law, and permit Joshua (Yeshua) to lead them across the Jordan and into the Promised Land within them -- and each Christian must pick up their own cross and crucify their lower nature in the Jerusalem from above that is within them -- and each Muslim must embrace an inner-spiritual Jihad as they intimately follow God's "...servant by night from the Al-Haram [Sacred] Mosque [in Mecca] to the Al-Aqsa [literally 'the most distant'] Mosque" in the Jerusalem/Mecca within them, in order to gaze upon the Living Torah -- the Living Word of The Most High -- the Living Qu'ran -- and eat of the Spiritual Manna and the Living Waters in order to inherit Eternal Life.
Yeshua warns those who dwell in the darkness of this world: "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it."(Matt 7:13-14 NKJ). Because it is only when we enter within us through the "narrow gate" that we are able to find the Kingdom. "Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, 'See here!' or 'See there!' For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21 NKJ).
From a Spiritual New Covenant perspective: A true
teacher of God's Word is one that leads men into the Kingdom through the House
of Knowledge, and this is seen in
Yeshua's condemnation of the Scribes and Pharisees when he said: “But
woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut off the kingdom
of heaven from men; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those
who are entering to go in” (Matt 23:13 NAS).
If the modern church doctrines of Christianity were genuine, and
salvation was through mere belief in Yeshua, then Yeshua would not have said the
above words to the leaders of the Jews, but would have more appropriately
stated: “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you
shut off the kingdom of heaven from men; for you do not yourselves believe in
God's only begotten Son in whom all men must believe, nor do you allow those who
are listening to your doctrine to believe”.
But Yeshua did not say these word! And Christians have permitted themselves to
become spiritually disenfranchised by the doctrines of 4th century Pagan Rome
that obstructs their entrance into the Kingdom within -- to the degree that they
are very much like the Sadducees and Pharisees because they no not that they can
even enter the Inner Kingdom that Yeshua declared as the True Temple of the Most
In their building of a worldly institutionalized temple founded upon dogma and traditions that alienate the people from the Spiritual, their inauguration of a class of priests and teachers, and their creation of manmade doctrines that replaced the true spiritual teachings from God, the scribes and Pharisees “shut off the kingdom of heaven from men”. If the kingdom of God was something to believe in, as Christians assert, then Yeshua never would have said: “for you do not enter in yourselves” -- enter in what? The New American Standard (NAS) translation at this sighting is very interesting, in that it could pertain to entering into something -- like a house -- or, we could read it exactly as it appears, and understand that the scribes and Pharisees did not “enter in yourselves” -- which is exactly where Yeshua said the Kingdom of God exists (Luke 17:21 KJV).
The scriptures are not an historical account -- but rather, a series of allegorical forms and symbols that convey events of the mind and spirit when the Disciple of the Light turns them within, and uses the written word as the Key of Knowledge that unlocks the inner "narrow gate" within the mind of Spiritual Israel -- i.e., the True Seeker of TheWay.
In the same way that there was no way to open the minds of the Pharisees because their hearts were hardened by their allegiance to the doctrines of men -- and their ears were dulled because they were stopped up by manmade dogma -- and their eyes were blinded by the carnal limitations of their vision -- so too have the Christians replaced the Pharisees as those bound by the doctrines of men that has caused them to be the apostates to the Living Word. And while the modern Christians have faith, they continue to cling to the doctrines of Constantine that obstructs their entrance into the Kingdom within. And because of the hardness of their hearts and the rejection of the Living Word, modern Christians have truly made themselves the replacement of the Pharisees in their spiritual apostasy.
A believer is an entry-level person of the simple faith. They have yet to begin the process of spiritual transformation that is necessary to draw near and eventually enter the Kingdom that Yeshua said was within us (see http://GateOfEden.com ). They believe that the Torah or Word of God is written in a Book, and know not that the Living Torah/Word is written within them! What Yeshua taught was that if you fail to walk in TheWay by picking up your own cross and crucifying the division in your lower nature that causes you to be shackled to the dark abyss and ignorance of this world, that you walk the broad-way of self destruction. If you are a believer, then you must begin to do as the Apostle commands, and imitate God -- i.e., "Therefore be imitators of God as dear children" (Eph 5:1 NKJ). As you evolve spiritually, you are able to do this because each person is the offspring of the Most High, and the historical Yeshua is our Elder Brother (see http://Ebionite.com ). A disciple, therefore, fulfills the requirement set forth by the Apostle when he commanded to "Prove all things" (1Thes 5:21 KJV). The great truth that the believer fails to comprehend, is the reality that it is within your ability to enter within the holy of holies of the Temple within you, and learn directly from the Source of all Truth, Knowledge and Light (see Entering the Kingdom, and Gate of Eden). This is why Yeshua taught the necessity to be in the world and not of it.
Proof -- Jesus Was A Man -- Not God
who worship Jesus as God, embrace the doctrines of Constantine and Pagan Rome,
and therefore worship a false god. It is demonstrated beyond any
doubt below that Yeshua was a true holy man who became the Messiah/Christ at his
baptism (see The Ten Words).
The Logos, Word, or Son Of God, denotes the Mind of God, and is an Enlightening
Force of God that Manifests in the life of those who live a truly Consecrated
Life set totally apart to the Most High -- and this pre-Constantine assertion of
the Disciples of Yeshua is presented on the Ebionite web site and seen in the
words that Yeshua 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).
Which means that in worshiping Jesus instead of imitating him as the
pattern for all to follow, modern Christian has reduced themselves to a people
who worship a false god and are turned out of TheWay.
Which means that in worshiping Jesus instead of imitating him as the pattern for all to follow, modern Christian has reduced themselves to a people who worship a false god and are turned out of TheWay.
There is overwhelming documented evidence that the words spoken to Yeshua at his baptism in the Jordan above, was: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee" (see The Ten Words). The doctrine of the Trinity was imposed upon Christianity by the Roman Emperor Constantine, which means that the position of the Ebionites and Nazirenes were correct, and that of the Church is in error. Yeshua became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism -- by virtue of his Consecrated Life and by fulfilling the Torah/Law within himself -- as seen in the words that Yeshua , "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." Hence when we pick up our own cross and follow in Yeshua's footstep in TheWay, and "...thus fulfill the law, [we] are able to become Christs" (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).
Those Christians who worship Yeshua, instead of imitating the pattern in his life and teachings, are entry-level believers of the simple faith. Being what Paul refers to as “babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 KJV), they cannot comprehend the Mysteries of God that the Apostle warned they would look upon as "foolishness"(1 Cor 2:14). They cannot enter the Kingdom within, because in the words of Paul, their carnal nature inhibits them from their own higher spiritual reality where those who have entered the Kingdom have "... heard things so astounding that they are beyond a man's power to describe or put in words (and anyway I am not allowed to tell them to others)” (2 Cor 12:1-4 TLB). Christians choose to ignore the warning of Paul that the believers of the simple faith cannot merely read the Bible and comprehend the true spiritual meaning (see Abysmal Pursuit Of God By The Letter that Killeth). In ignoring this warning, Christians bring about their own spiritual demise.
The author of this web site has been sent back into this world in order to restore the spiritual essence of Yeshua's teachings of TheWay. At the beginning of our Common Era he lived as Jacob/James who was historically known as the Brother of Yeshua/Jesus. At present he is gathering together the original Disciples who have in like manner re-entered life in order to bring about a true Spiritual Revolution where the truly faithful seekers will Know God by virtue of entering the Kingdom within and dwelling with the Lord while still in the body of flesh. What is written herein is not a system of doctrines and beliefs -- but rather, the restoral of a biblical/spiritual mindset that must be embrace in conjunction with a Consecrated lifestyle that enables the Disciple to enter the Kingdom within (see Gate Of Eden), and thereby enable the seeker of the Truth, the Light and TheWay, to learn the Mysteries of the Most High directly from the Lord -- and in receiving the Manna/Knowledge from Heaven, Know the Truth by virtue of their own Spiritual Experiences.
You can't know Messiah/Christ so long as you embrace the doctrines of Constantine and Pagan Rome whereby you believe that Jesus was God. When the man inquired of Yeshua what he must do to inherit eternal life -- and even called Yeshua "good" -- Yeshua corrected him, saying: "And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments" (Matt 19:16-17 KJV). Yeshua was a man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism in the Jordan -- a man that through his fulfillment of the Torah/Law within himself, had become so holy, that "...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). To worship the man, and call him God, is sacrilegious and idolatry -- and is the primary reason why Christians today cannot know the True Messiah/Christ. By example Yeshua refused to even be called "good" -- calling himself a prophet in the words: "Nevertheless I must journey today, tomorrow, and the day following; for it cannot be that a prophet should perish outside of Jerusalem" (Luke 13:33 NKJ) -- equally portraying himself as a brother to his disciples "but go to My brethren and say to them, 'I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God'" (John 20:17 NKJ).
When the man inquired what he should do to enter into life, Yeshua said: "...but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments" (Matt 19:16-17 KJV). Yeshua said nothing about faith and belief in him! He said nothing about the need to say a prayer and accept Yeshua as his personal Lord and Savior! In fact, a great number of modern Christians would be found in opposition to what Yeshua said in his reply to this question. Why? Because the total focus on man’s ability to gain eternal life is placed upon his willingness to "keep the commandments". Why didn’t Yeshua just answer the question in the manner that modern Christians would and say to the man: Profess your desire to repent -- believe that Yeshua is the Son of God -- and accept him as your personal Lord and Savior. The most important reason that Yeshua did not reply in this manner, is simply beyond the comprehension of the modern Christian who worships the man Yeshua as if he was God.
What is being presented here goes to the very core of the teachings of The Way and man’s quest to be born into the realm of higher reality and enter into Life. What the Bible states is that only those who the Father chooses as being even worthy to believe, are able to come into the Presence of the Son of God. A constant theme throughout the Gospel of John is the great truth that the followers and disciples of Christ did not choose to follow Yeshua -- but rather, Yeshua chose them! Moreover, the Bible states that they are chosen even before they enter into this life -- i.e., "All that the Father gives me will come to me" (John 6:37 NIV). Thus, we are presented with another core New Covenant teaching that is not understood in the words: "It is written in the Prophets: They will all be taught by God. Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me" (John 6:45 NIV).
The problem is seen in the fact that we cannot be "…taught by God", or "…learn from Him", unless we have proven ourselves worthy by "…keeping the commandments". Thus, that one must first prove themselves worthy -- that they must prepare their mind and body-vessel to permit entrance of the Son of God by living in accordance with the Royal Law of Love and the Commandments of the Most High -- and only those who are found worthy are permitted to enter into the Presence of the Son of God -- is an important concept that is no longer understood in our present time.
From a biblical perspective, the beginning of faith and belief in the Son of God is demonstrated in a life where the person lives and observes the Commandments of the Lord throughout every aspect of their lives. In like manner, Jacob/James, who had been counseled by the Holy Spirit (Acts 15:28), invoked the same process as did Yeshua when he was asked how one can inherit eternal life, as seen in the words: "It is my judgment, therefore, that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God. Instead we should write to them, telling them to abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood. For Moses has been preached in every city from the earliest times and is read in the synagogues on every Sabbath" (Acts 15:19-21 NIV).
This was in preparation for being found worthy that the Father might permit those Gentiles who proved their faith and belief to come into the Presence of the Son of God who dwells in the Kingdom within. They were therefore initially required to "…abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood". Further, they were to learn the Law as revealed through Moses where it was "…read in the synagogues on every Sabbath." These entry-level requirements would then prepare the Gentiles to become a disciple of the Light, and enable them to truly begin the journey of walking in The Way.
The narrow path which the disciple must walk is not one that can be traveled by everyone. "Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22 NAS) -- and in the knowledge of this fact the Holy Spirit counseled James that he should "…not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God". James and the disciples knew and understood the futility of an entry-level convert attempting to live in the manner of a mature spiritual child of God. Therefore, neither did James or the disciples expect the Gentile converts to live the biblically centered lifestyle that was ordained among the congregational body of the Jerusalem Church.
You can't know Messiah/Christ unless you live a Consecrated Life totally set apart as servants of the Most High. You can't know Yeshua/Jesus, so long as you continue to teach and embrace the doctrines of Constantine and the dogma and traditions of Pagan Rome! And until you begin to imitate the pattern in the life of Yeshua, and manifest his teachings and commandments in word, thought and deed in everything you do -- living a Consecrated life in total dedication to the Lord -- then you will remain entry-level believers of the simple faith of whom Paul said could only be given the "milk" of the gospel: “I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready” (1 Cor 3:2 NIV). Again it is important to understand the words of the Apostle when he warned that: “Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil” (Heb 5:13-14 NIV).
The Pre-Existent Soul That Evolves To Perfection Over The Course Of Many Lives
When Yeshua was asked what a person must do to inherit eternal life, he was told to keep the Commandments (Mt 19:17). Paul said that man is saved through faith, but Paul was a Gnostic who understood that the rituals of the Laws cannot provide a person entrance into the Kingdom within (see http://GateOfEden.com ). Traditionally, it has been near impossible to convey to people of what Paul refers to as being of a "natural" mind (1 Cor 2:14), that in order to comprehend the Mysteries of God that natural man would judge as "foolishness", they will have to develop areas of mind that are currently beyond their reach. And while you are attempting to do this, you will be vehemently opposed by men dressed as priests and clergy who speak in the authority of either the Church or even God, telling the people that you are demon possessed. In fact, the Church and clergy itself has become an obstacle to spiritual growth and the development of the prodigal sons who are shackled to the dark abyss of this world by their system of manmade beliefs.
The people of the simple faith use a Corrupted Bible where many important teachings of Yeshua were removed, and others altered in an attempt to support a secular institutionalized Church, rather than a Spiritual. Even when the Church is confronted with the facts that Yeshua was a true holy man who became the Messiah/Christ at his baptism (see The Challenge), they ignore the facts, and the reality that the earliest of followers of Yeshua did not believe that he was God (see http://Ebionite.com ). In worshipping Yeshua, instead of imitating the pattern of his life as our elder brother, the Churches have obstructed TheWay of the people into the Kingdom in the manner that the Sadducees and Pharisees did before them.
Because the Bible was edited, and important teachings of TheWay removed, modern Christians no longer understand that the historical Yeshua was a man who became perfect over the course of many lifetimes -- and we too must undergo the same process of Spiritual Transformation and Perfection. We are the prodigal sons/daughters of our Heavenly Father -- Yeshua is our elder brother who was the first to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination -- we presently dwell in what the Bible refers to as "the far country... outer darknss", and we can only return when we take the yoke of Messiah/Christ upon us, pick up our own cross and journey in TheWay. With these important teachings of the Yeshua removed by the Church of Constantine, believers are not able to understand that the biblical doctrine of preordination and predestination which is of paramount importance throughout the scriptures, is the result of our own past actions in our previous lives -- i.e., each of us reaps what we sow (Gal 6:7). And this is why the person of the simple faith cannot even become a disciple of Yeshua and TheWay, without opening their minds to the Higher Mysteries of the Kingdom.
What is our true spiritual reality? The authors of the Bible itself attempt many times to warn the reader that they are in no way prepared to even envision their own true spiritual reality. While most Christians ignore what they fail to comprehend, it must be understood that a carnal person who uses less than 10% of his potential of mind -- i.e., a person of a purely natural mindset whose thinking is very much attached and dependent on the culture and things of this world -- are for the most part totally unaware of man’s inner soul and spiritual reality. Because their whole focus in life is directed outwardly, it is near impossible for them to even perceive and comprehend the spiritual concepts of the Bible -- and it is of these people, even when they claim to be believers in the gospel, of whom the Apostle Paul wrote that the things of the spirit appear to be "foolishness" (1 Cor 2:14) to them. In our endeavor to embrace reality through the higher teachings of the Word of God that Paul warns is beyond human comprehension, it is important that we recognize the universality of the Apostle’s words with respect to what he calls the “natural man” who is too carnal in his manner of thinking to even contemplate the Mysteries of God. And to these baptized and committed believers who he refers to as “babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1-2), Paul states: I will “...tell about the visions I've had, and revelations from the Lord. Fourteen years ago I was taken up to heaven for a visit. Don't ask me whether my body was there or just my spirit, for I don't know; only God can answer that. But anyway, there I was in paradise, and heard things so astounding that they are beyond a man's power to describe or put in words (and anyway I am not allowed to tell them to others)” (2 Cor 12:1-4 TLB). What did Paul see and experience that was not only beyond natural man's ability to comprehend, but was not lawful to tell what he saw to others?
the Martyrdom of Ignatius (first Century Overseer of Antioch), Ignatius
speaks of himself as a disciple of John. In
his Epistle to the Ephesians he writes that he has been
“initiated into the mysteries of the Gospel
with Paul, the holy, the martyred”.
In his Epistle to the Trallaus he speaks of the mysteries and writes:
“Might I not write to you things more full of
mystery? But I fear to do so, lest
I should inflict injury on you who are babes.
Pardon me in this respect, lest, as not being able to receive their
weighty import, ye should be strangled by them”.
Ignatius also writes that though he is aware of the mysteries, he is not
yet “by any means
perfect, nor am I such a disciple as Paul or Peter”.
respect to what Christians believe today, Paul warned that until they underwent
the process of spiritual transformation, they could only be given the
of the gospel:
gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you
are still not ready”
(1 Cor 3:2 NIV). Again
it is important to understand the words of the Apostle when he warned that:
“Anyone who lives on milk, being still an
infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food
is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish
good from evil” (Heb 5:13-14 NIV).
The very words, “…who
by constant use have trained themselves”,
implies a faith that is thoroughly incorporated into a spiritual mindset and
manner of living in accordance with the Royal Law of the Most High.
Further, with respect to the level of truth, what the Apostle is stating
is this: If you are still living and believing the “milk”
of the Gospel -- i.e.,
“Jesus Christ, and him crucified”
(1 Cor 2:2 KJV); and in the words of the Apostle: “Therefore
let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity, not
laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of
faith in God, instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the
resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment”
(Heb 6:1-2 NIV) -- then the Apostle states that such a person whose thinking is
still bound by a carnal perception of the Word, “is
still an infant, [and] is not acquainted with the teaching about
righteousness” (Heb 5:13).
Why? Because these are
the doctrines that were given to the “babes in
Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 KJV) -- entry-level
believers who were yet too carnal to comprehend the genuine revelation of the
Christ of the Spirit and the Mysteries of God.
Moreover, from a biblical perspective, the most egregious of sin against
the Holy Spirit was for the believer to be stagnant, and remain an entry level
Christian -- as is the case in the modern church today.
facts conveyed to us by the Apostle Paul go to the very core of why spiritual
truths are embodied in physical symbols when they are set before the people of
the simple faith? In the
words of the Church Father Origen, the resurrection was “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”.
When Jesus warned that: “Whoever
does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple”
(Luke 14:27 NAS); the overcoming of the flesh and
the lower nature, which is represented in the resurrection, is the resurrection
spoken of by St. Gregory’s when he wrote, “the
Resurrection is no other thing than ‘the re-constitution of our nature in its
original form’”. And this
higher spiritual reality -- which is our true spiritual reality as the prodigal
sons and daughters of the Most High -- is the reality that is beyond carnal
human comprehension -- and thus, can only be presented to entry-level seekers as
of the gospel that was intended to nourish "babes
Yeshua, Paul, And The Early Church Taught Reincarnation!
were the conditions of your birth? Your life? The
life you are presently living was the result of choices you made, and the manner
in which you lived, prior to your birth into your present
life. When Paul wrote about the conditions of people's lives,
he did not say that each person has free will and choices -- but rather, that
each persons life was pre-determined prior to their birth.
As an example of this Divine Providence in the life of
the individual, the Apostle gives the example of Jacob and Esau, and writes: “For
though the twins were not yet born, and had not done anything good or bad, in
order that God's purpose according to His choice might stand, not because of
works, but because of Him who calls, it was said to her, The older will serve
the younger. Just as it is written, Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated” (Rom
Admittedly, if it truly difficult for the modern Christian to understand the doctrine of predestination -- and even the Bible itself -- because it was severely edited by the Church of Rome (see Corruption Of Scriptures). The truth and the facts to the matter is very clearly expressed in the words of Prof. Bart D. Ehrman in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, where he warns us that: "...theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy" -- which orthodoxy was to bring the text of the Bible into conformity with the doctrines and tenets of the Church of the Roman Emperor Constantine. In his book The Text of the New Testament, Dr. Vincent Taylor writes that "The manuscripts of the New Testament preserve traces of two kinds of dogmatic alterations: those which involve the elimination or alteration of what was regarded as doctrinally unacceptable or inconvenient, and those which introduce into the Scriptures proof for a favorite theological tenet or practice". One of the most common biblical manuscripts used to make our modern English translations is known today as the Nestle Text. Yet it was Prof. Eberhard Nestle himself who warned us in his Einfhrung in die Textkritik des griechischen Testaments: "Learned men, so called Correctores were, following the church meeting at Nicea 325 AD, selected by the church authorities to scrutinize the sacred texts and rewrite them in order to correct their meaning in accordance with the views which the church had just sanctioned." When the Church of Constantine endeavored to make the teachings of the New Covenant in sync with fourth century Roman Pagan thought and culture, to ignore the facts with respect to the manner in which the corrupters of the Word recreated the message of the scriptures in order to make it compatible to church doctrine, is to make oneself disingenuous to the very Son of God to whom we proclaim to be faithful to.
One of the major teachings of Yeshua which was removed from the New Testament was that the pre-existent soul evolves to perfection (Mt. 5:48) over the course of many lifetimes -- and each person's life is pre-determined in accordance with their past prior to being born into their present life. Thus, the words of the 3rd century Church Father Origen who wrote: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).
In the approximate year of 178 of our Common
Era, Celsus, the Epicurean Philosopher and opponent of Christianity, published a
rather embarrassing work in opposition to Christianity known as The True Word
or Discourse. It is
said that this work was widely published and used by the Pagan world as an
attack on the Church. Seventy
years after its publication The True Word was still so widely circulated,
that the Church Father Origen was commissioned by St. Ambrosius to refute this
attack by Celsus. In examination of this document, the modern
Christian must initially ask: Who today would accuse the Christian Church of
being a “secret system”?
No one -- because the Church today has lost its spiritual essence -- and
is a mere shadow of its former self over the first three centuries of its
existence. Therefore, it is
important that we recognize that such an allegation would be unheard of in our
present time. Celsus attacked the
Church for being a “secret system”,
teaching the masses the resurrection, and the spiritually mature the doctrine of
the pre-existent soul and reincarnation. Though this may
astonish the modern believer, Origen does not refute Celsus, but rather explains
that: “But on these subjects much and that of a
mystical kind, might be said; in keeping with which is the following: It is good
to keep close the secret of a king, (Tobit xii, 7), in order that the doctrine
of the entrance of souls into bodies, not, however, that of the transmigration
from one body into another, may not be thrown before the common understanding,
nor what is holy given to the dogs, nor pearls be cast before swine.
For such a procedure would be impious, being equivalent to a betrayal of
the mysterious declaration of God's Wisdom”.
“It is good to keep secret the
entrance of souls into bodies”, Origen writes, but “not…
the transmigration from one body into another”. In other words, Origen openly acknowledges that the
pre-existence of the soul, as well as the doctrine of reincarnation are openly
revealed to Christians who have been purified and matured sufficiently to
comprehend the mysteries of God, while the knowledge of why the soul even came
into this world is kept secret, and is not openly revealed to carnal minds.
In explanation, Origen quotes scripture and writes that “It
is good to keep close the secret of a king”, and affirms that
certain mysteries only belong to the spiritually mature in the word that one
should not permit “what is holy given to the dogs,
nor pearls be cast before swine”.
his famed word De Principiis, Origen explains why it is written that God loved
Jacob and hated Esau before they wer born, and explains Paul's statement why
some people are born vessels of gold, while others vessels of wrath:
“For God must be believed
to do and order all things and at all times according to His judgment. For the
words which the apostle uses when he says, ‘In a great house there are not
only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and of earth, and some to
honor and some to dishonor;' and those which he adds, saying, 'If a man purge
himself, he will be a vessel unto honor, sanctified and meet for the Master's
use, unto every good work,' undoubtedly point out this, that he who shall purge
himself when he is in this life, will be prepared for every good work in that
which is to come; while he who does not purge himself will be, according to the
amount of his impurity, a vessel unto dishonor, i.e., unworthy. It is therefore
possible to understand that there have been also formerly rational vessels,
whether purged or not, i.e., which either purged themselves or did not do so,
and that consequently every vessel, according to the measure of its purity or
impurity, received a place, or region, or condition by birth, or an office to
discharge, in this world. All of which, down to the humblest, God providing for
and distinguishing by the power of His wisdom, arranges all things by His
controlling judgment, according to a most impartial retribution, so far as each
one ought to be assisted or cared for in conformity with his deserts. In which
certainly every principle of equity is shown, while the inequality of
circumstances preserves the justice of a retribution according to merit. But the
grounds of the merits in each individual case are only recognized truly and
clearly by God Himself, along with His only-begotten Word, and His Wisdom, and
the Holy Spirit”.
Origen again demonstrates that our lot in life is the
result of our own deserts, and writes: “For God the
Creator makes a certain vessel unto honor, and other vessels to dishonor; but
that vessel which has cleansed itself from all impurity He makes a vessel unto
honor, while that which has stained itself with the filth of vice He makes a
vessel unto dishonor. The conclusion from which, accordingly, is this, that the
cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according
to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore
every individual vessel has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes
and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one
unto dishonor. And if the assertion appear correct, as it certainly is, and in
harmony with all piety, that it is due to previous causes that every vessel be
prepared by God either to honor or to dishonor, it does not appear absurd that,
in discussing remoter causes in the same order, and in the same method, we
should come to the same conclusion respecting the nature of souls, and (believe)
that this was the reason why Jacob was beloved before he was born into this
world, and Esau hated, while he still was contained in the womb of his
Everything that we know about Creation affirms that
all things are controlled by natural laws.
Whether it be the movement of the heavenly bodies, the atmospheric and
elemental currents of the world in which we dwell, right down to the atomic and
genetic fabric and structure of life itself. All
of life is immersed in a sea of natural law that controls every aspect of
creation. The very prediction
of the atomic bomb as theorized by Einstein, is proof that once man is able to
envision the laws that control every aspect of Creation, he is able to
successfully foresee the eventual results.
The scriptures contain a multitude of paradoxes that the seeker of Truth must come to understand. In observing the all-important and far-reaching elements of one of the primary paradoxes of predestination and freewill -- the dilemma of which is presented in the words of the Rev. Charles Spurgeon when he wrote in his autobiography: “The system of truth revealed in the Scriptures is not simply one straight line, but two; and no man will ever get a right view of the gospel until he knows how to look at the two lines at once. For instance, I read in one Book of the Bible, The Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him who hears say, Come. And let him who is athirst, Come. And whoever will, let him take the water of life freely [Rev. 22:17]. Yet I am taught, in another part of the same inspired Word, that it is not of he who wills, nor of he who runs, but of God Who shows mercy [Rom 9:16]. I see, in one place, God in providence presiding over all, and yet I see, and I cannot help seeing, that man acts as he pleases, and that God has left his actions, in a great measure, to his own free-will. Now, if I were to declare that man was so free to act that there was no control of God over his actions, I should be driven very near to atheism; and if, on the other hand, I should declare that God so over-rules all things that man is not free enough to be responsible, I should be driven at once into Antinomianism or fatalism. That God predestines, and yet that man is responsible, are two facts that few can see clearly. They are believed to be inconsistent and contradictory, but they are not. The fault is in our weak judgment. Two truths cannot be contradictory to each other. If, then, I find taught in one part of the Bible that everything is fore-ordained, that is true; and if I find, in another Scripture, that man is responsible for all his actions, that is true; and it is only my folly that leads me to imagine that these two truths can ever contradict each other” (Charles H. Spurgeon, Autobiography Vol. 1: The Early Years. pp. 173, 174).
we have free will? In many
places of the scriptures it appears to suggest that we do.
And yet, in many other places the Bible reveals that Divine Providence --
which is the Will of God -- totally rules over every aspect of our lives.
The greater reality that believers must come to terms with is the very factual
words of Rev. Spurgeon that those who attempt to read the Bible
[never] get a right view of the gospel until he knows how to look at the two
lines at once.
while we can still see the doctrine of predestination throughout the pages of
the scriptures -- it being one of the primary concepts expressed -- because the
4th century Church of Constantine removed the teachings on the pre-existent
soul, believers today can never understand the spiritual revelation of the
written word -- and are therefore obstructed from entering the Kingdom
within. If, therefore, we profess to believe in the Bible, and we
desire to embrace the Light, we must not accept one of these paradoxical
realities while rejecting the other.
We must instead embrace the premises that both are equally true.
even more difficult to understand is the fact that the Bible clearly teaches
that we are responsible for the Divine Will that God exerts in our life.
In the words of Yeshua: “Woe
to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must
come, but woe to the man through whom they come!”
(Matt 18:7 NIV). Why must
they come? Because God has
willed it. Again we must
admit what the Apostle tells us at Romans 11:32 as seen in the commentary
Barnes' Notes which writes of the word that we translate concluded, shut up,
bound, committed and consigned: “It
is properly used in reference to those who are shut up in prison”.
Only when we begin to accept the fact that the life we are presently
living has been individually designed to meet our personal needs, and it is as
if we have been imprisoned by a Higher Spiritual Power to live out the
circumstances and events in our life, are we able to get a sense of the purpose
of life itself.
But without understanding why we have been bound to a personal prison,
and that our own actions has shackled us and brought about the life we are
presently living, it will be impossible for us to become disciples of Yeshua and
inherit the Promise of True Spiritual Freedom.

the same way that “Even after Jesus
had done all these miraculous signs in their presence, they still would not
believe in him…”, we can
progress no further in our own walk in The Way until we first understand why
these people did not believe in Yeshua, as seen in the words:
“For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere:
‘He has blinded their eyes and deadened their hearts, so they can neither see
with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts’”
(John 12:37-40 NIV). Contrary
to what we want to believe, it is important for us to realize what the Bible
actually states -- i.e., that the people who did not accept Yeshua, did not
reject him of their own accord, but because God did not permit them to believe
in Yeshua. The problem is
that, from a church perspective, when we acknowledge this very clearly defined
biblical fact, we not only undermine the whole political structure of the church
because what the Bible is actually confirming is that man not only does not
possess the freewill that gives him the ability to choose to come to Yeshua, but
we further destroy the popular idea that Yeshua was the all-inclusive savior
that modern Christianity portrays him to be.
As demonstrated on the web site Things
Christians Don't Tell Jews About The New Testament, the Bible teaches that
God did not want many of the Jews to believe in Yeshua. And in like
manner, God inhibits many Christians from comprehending the Higher Mysteries of
the Gospel -- and it is the hardening of the heart and mind that inhibits them
from understanding what I have written of this and other web sites.

You can't even begin to understand the scriptures, until you comprehend Divine Providence and Predestination -- and that in your past lives you created the life you are presently living -- and you are at this time creating your future lives.
God does not sit there determining who will be corrected, who will receive mercy, or who will receive love. Basically, it is all a matter of Law that we invoke with our thoughts, desires and actions. Fundamentally, this is why the Christian Gnostics portrayed the God of the (carnal) Jews as a Demiurge -- because the literal interpretation of the scriptures portray the Left Hand of God, and the inner spiritual meaning of the scriptures portray the Right Hand. That the scriptures -- and especially the Torah and Old Testament are an allegory -- can be seen in the article No Jew Has Read The Torah. And it was for this same reason that Yeshua told the (carnal) Jews that they were the offspring of the devil, who was their god -- i.e., "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 8:44 NKJ). And because the vast majority of Christians have adopted the god of the Left Hand as presented in the literal interpretation of the Old Testament -- i.e., the god of wrath, vengeance, death and destruction -- their god is Satan. The Father of Yeshua is the God of the Right Hand -- "God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth" (John 4:24 NKJ) -- and it was for this reason that Paul spoke of the (left hand) god of the written word as "not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life" (2 Cor 3:6 KJV). Speaking of Simon Magus who the Apostle Peter said was empowered by the Left Hand of God, Peter states: "He is a power of the left hand of God, and has authority to do harm to those who know not God, so that he has been able to involve you in diseases; but by these very diseases, which have been permitted to come upon you by the good providence of God, you, seeking and finding him who is able to cure, have been compelled to submit to the will of God on the occasion of the cure of the body, and to think of believing, in order that in this way you may have your souls as well as your bodies in a healthy state" (Clementine Homilies).
When Yeshua healed the man he warned him: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV). At the time of Yeshua the Jews as well as his disciples knew that all suffering, disease and calamities of life is caused by man's own sin -- i.e., "The disciples of Jesus were persuaded that a man might have sinned before he was born, (John, ix. 2,) and the Pharisees held the transmigration [reincarnation] of virtuous souls, (Joseph. de Bell. Judaico, l. ii. c. 7;) and a modern Rabbi is modestly assured, that Hermes, Pythagoras, Plato, etc., derived their metaphysics from his illustrious countrymen" (Gibbon; Decline & Fall). This mindset and thinking with respect to the events of life from the perception of the disciples is explored in the Wycliffe Commentary where it is written: "The question of the disciples (v. 2) was grounded in the belief that bodily infirmity or suffering was due to sin, whether of parents (Exo 20:5) or of the man himself, presumably on the basis of the soul’s pre-existence, which some Jews held". Is this some Jewish fable that the disciples of Christ conjured up themselves? Or is this belief a foundational element of the Gospel that Jesus taught to them?
On the question itself -- Master, who did sin? -- the commentary Barnes’ Notes writes that: "It was a universal opinion among the Jews that calamities of all kinds were the effects of sin. The case, however, of this man was that of one that was blind from his birth, and it was a question which the disciples could not determine whether it was his fault or that of his parents. Many of the Jews, as it appears from their writings (see Lightfoot), believed in the doctrine of the transmigration of souls; or that the soul of a man, in consequence of sin, might be compelled to pass into other bodies, and be punished there. They also believed that an infant might sin before it was born (see Lightfoot), and that consequently this blindness might have come upon the child as a consequence of that".
On the question of who did sin, this man, or his parents, and the pre-existence and reincarnation of the soul, the Adam Clarke Commentary tells us: "The doctrine of the transmigration of souls appears to have been an article in the creed of the Pharisees, and it was pretty general both among the Greeks and the Asiatics. The Pythagoreans believed the souls of men were sent into other bodies for the punishment of some sin which they had committed in a pre-existent state. This seems to have been the foundation of the disciples’ question to our Lord. Did this man sin in a pre-existent state, that he is punished in this body with blindness? Or, did his parents commit some sin, for which they are thus plagued in their offspring!... The Jewish rabbis have had the same belief from the very remotest antiquity. Origen cites an apocryphal book of the Hebrews, in which the patriarch Jacob is made to speak thus: I am an angel of God; one of the first order of spirits. Men call me Jacob, but my true name, which God has given me, is Israel: Orat. Joseph. apud ORIG. Many of the Jewish doctors have believed that the souls of Adam, Abraham, and Phineas, have successively animated the great men of their nation. Philo says that the air is full of spirits, and that some, through their natural propensity, join themselves to bodies; and that others have an aversion from such a union. See several other things relative to this point in his treatises, De Plant. Noe-- De Gigantibus-- De Confus. Ling.-- De Somniis, etc.; and see Calmet, where he is pretty largely quoted".
It is important in our assessment of genuine biblical foundations of thought to recognize the fact that the pre-existence and reincarnation of the soul was a universally accepted belief among the people who Yeshua taught the Gospel and Mysteries of God. Once this fact is acknowledged, then we are forced to conclude that if this belief about the nature of life was in error, and reincarnation is not a viable part of the teachings of eshua, then Yeshua would have had to condemn it -- or, we must recognize that it was removed by the later Gentile Church. That the Pharisees understood that a man is born blind from the misdeeds of a previous life is seen in their words to the man: "You were born entirely in sins, and are you teaching us?" (Jn 9:34 NAS). Moreover, it is well documented that the Essenes -- who with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls are now understood to be the foundation of New Covenant teachings -- also believed in the pre-existence and transmigration of the soul. It was warned that we should settle matters “with our adversary quickly, while we are in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out from there, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (Matt 5:25-26 KJV). The keeper of the prison that Yeshua spoke of is the Left Hand of God that is the Laws that administer corrective action to all those who fail to keep the Royal Law of the Most High.
view of the fact that the scriptures themselves state that what proceeds forth
from God “…shall not return to me empty, without
accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I
sent it” (Isa 55:10-11 NAS) -- and the fact that “…to
me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance” (Isa
45:23 NAS) -- and the whole of creation has been “predestined
according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the
purpose of his will” (Eph 1:9-11 NIV) -- then we must begin the
process of re-evaluating our beliefs in order to raise them above the limits of
nature, and bring them into conformity with the Divine Plan.
Personally, I would be blind if when I looked out at the world I did not see a great deal of suffering, hardships, ignorance and unhappiness in the portraits that people have painted for themselves, where there should be joy, love and acceptance. We are gods (John 10:34) -- but we constantly diminish our birth-right because we don't know what it means to be a son or daughter of our Heavenly Father. We subject ourselves to self-serving governments, self-serving prophets and religious authorities, teachers who lack vision, beliefs that are unworthy of our royal genetics -- and then we complain when we find ourselves shackled in the dungeons of the ignorance of our own minds. As is stated on the http://GateOfEden.com web site: Yeshua told us to "Open and unloose the mind, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand". Yet, we refuse to follow in TheWay because we remain chained to the self-imposed shackles of our own thinking.
Most people fail to understand life and find truth, because it is human nature to want instant gratification. They are possessed by the born again Christian mentality -- i.e., say my prayer and I am born again. Each person has built their present house over the course of eons -- and yet, they expect this house to instantly change if someone tells them the truth and TheWay. In the same way that it takes work to rebuild a physical house, it takes a great deal of work to rebuild the mental and spiritual houses that we have ourselves constructed over the course of uncountable number of lives. And while we can observe small incremental changes as we begin to make the journey, we are not going to instantly be transformed into a soul the stature of the historical Yeshua. Truth is, even if we succeed in bringing about the next level of soul-birth, and we stand among men as the Being of Light ( http://BeingOfLight.com ), we still have much work to accomplish before we become the Son of God in the biblical sense. But in the same way that Yeshua told the man who inquired about how to enter into eternal life to go and observe the Law, it is through these Laws that we will replace the hut that we are presently living in, with a mansion that is worthy of our royal genetics. So the first thing that we must do is become cognizant of what we see, perceive, think, desire and do, because we are the builders of the dwelling place in which we live -- now, and in the future.

Yet, Paul was a Gnostic!

Salvation through faith, then, must be through the Gnostic Faith/Knowledge of Paul
"But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?"
(James 2:20 KJV)
The Gnostic faith of Paul requires that those who seek the Kingdom "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5 NIV) -- "Pray without ceasing" (1Thes 5:17 KJV) -- "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV). To the degree that Paul warned: “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV). Present-day clergy who embrace the doctrine of blind faith, and live in accord with the culture of this world (flesh), without the necessary spiritual works that enables the Kingdom to manifest within the lives of the people (see http://GateOfEden.com ), are fulfilling the condition where it was spoken: "O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths" (Isa 3:12 NKJ)
nineteen hundred years many Christians have condemned the Jews for “killing
Yet the Bible states that the Hand of God forced the carnal Jews into the
role they played as those who opposed Yeshua and TheWay. They were
preordained and without a choice! Peter states to the leaders of the
Jews regarding Yeshua that: “this Man delivered
up by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by
the hands of godless men and put Him to death”
(Acts 2:23 NAS).
The word “predetermined” as used in this instance, should
invoke a great many questions in the minds of modern Jews and Christians alike.
Did the Jews and Romans crucify Christ?
Commenting on this verse, Barnes' Notes states: “The
fact, moreover, that this was predicted, shows that it was fixed or resolved on.
No event can be foretold,
evidently, unless it be certain that it will take place. The
event, therefore, must in some way be fixed or resolved on beforehand”.
about the Hand of God upon the hearts and minds of the people, Peter and John
said: “Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met
together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire
against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed. They
did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen”
(Acts 4:27-28 NIV).
What the two disciples are conveying to the reader is that every event
that took place at the crucifixion was directly brought about by the Hand of God
acting upon the hearts and minds of the people.
Regardless of whether we understand it, in order to begin the journey of
walking in The Way, it is imperative for us to acknowledge the validity of this
biblical statement. Moreover,
if this is true, we must ask ourselves the question: How can man resist the “power
and will” of what God “decided
beforehand should happen”?
How could the Jews resist the Will of God?
is clearly conveyed to the reader is that the biblical teaching regarding the
crucifixion was a pre-planned drama that God brought about by imposing His
supernatural and All-Pervasive Will upon a group of people who were little more
than puppets on God's stage of life.
Unless Christians are ready to adopt the doctrine that man is more
powerful than the Will of God, then they must be ready to acknowledge the fact
that those who brought about the events which culminated in the crucifixion, had
little to no choice in what transpired.
biblical fact is seen quite clearly documented in the International Standard
Bible Encyclopedia under the heading of Foreknow, where it writes: “Thus,
in Peter's speeches in Acts the predestination which finds expression in (Acts
4:28) is practically identified with the term prognosis in (2:23). Everything
which happened to Jesus took place in accordance with ‘the determinate counsel
and foreknowledge of God,’ so that nothing
happened except that which God had foreordained”.
“God had willed the death of Jesus
(John 3:16) and the death of Judas (Acts 1:16)”, writes
Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament, and then adds: “but
that fact did not absolve Judas from his responsibility and guilt (Luke
Sin of Judas was/is Synonymous with the Sin of Evangelical Christians Today:
What the above Bible verses demonstrate is that
Judas was a mere pawn in the hands of G-d who worked in conjunction with Satan
to bring about the crucifixion in the manner that it was predetermined as as
choreographed and spiritually staged event in the life of man. If, by
virtue of this fact, Judas was one of the instruments by which God carried out
what God Himself predestined -- and the scriptures tell us that both God and
Satan (Lk 22:3) worked in concert by using their supernatural powers to induce
Judas to betray Jesus -- and Jesus specifically chose Judas as a disciple
because he was predestined for the purpose that he performed -- it is imperative
that we ask the question as to how
can Judas be held responsible for what God brought about?
How can the carnal Jews be held accountable for what God forced them to
How can the carnal Jews be held accountable for what God forced them to do?
Since the second century (and especially since the creation of the Church of Constantine in the fourth century) it has been the gravest of misconceptions embraced by many of the Gentiles who converted to the teachings of the New Covenant, that the Jews rejected Christ, that the Messianic followers of Yeshua known historically as the Ebionite/Nazirenes were heretics because they continued to keep the Law of Moses in the manner of the Sadducees and Pharisees -- and perhaps the greatest lie of all, that God abandoned Israel. Fundamentally, the Gentile converts who did not know any better were greatly deceived and severed from the core teachings of TheWay, because in their failure to comprehend the manner in which the Hebrew scriptures were written, they ignorantly embraced these falsehoods -- resulting in their own severance from the Spiritual Essence of the Word of God. Moreover, because we fail to understand the (spiritual) nature of the sin of the historical man Judas today, the greater number of Christians who consider themselves to be sincere people of faith, actually are guilty of the same exact sin as was Judas who is portrayed in the New Testament as the one who physically betrayed Yeshua!
At chapter 76 verse 27 in what is today known as Gospel of the Nazirenes, we can readily see were Judas went to Caiaphas and offered to witness against Jesus. Why did Judas betray the Son of God? This question is of such a magnitude importance to not only Christians, Jews, Muslims, and all people of the earth today, that it has been set before us as a question pertaining to life and death! At verse 29-30 in the same chapter we read that when Judas was questioned respecting the consequences of his betrayal, and when asked whether he believed Jesus will be put to death, we see him respond: "No, for He will do some mighty work to deliver Himself out of their hands, even as when they of the synagogue in Capernaum rose up against Him, and brought Him to the brow of the hiss that they might throw Him down headlong, and did He not pass safely through their midst? He will surely escape them now also, and proclaim Himself openly and set up the Kingdom whereof He spoke".
Perhaps more than any other, these words are of paramount importance to modern believers today! The sin of Judas -- which means Jew -- from a scriptural perspective is indicative of a person who interprets and attempts to practice their religion outwardly, instead of inwardly. What this means is that from a biblical perspective, the majority of esteemed and highly regarded Christian religious authorities today, are very much as the leaders of the Sadducees and Pharisees were in the time of Yeshua -- i.e., they not only practice their tenets of religion outwardly, but they look for Christ to bring about the Kingdom upon the earth in the same exact manner as did Judas!
With respect to the Sadducees and Pharisees at the time of Jesus: Perhaps the finest example of their error is seen at chapter 87 verse 11 of the Nazirene Gospel where Yeshua says of the carnal Jews: "For they, making a god of their belly, sacrificed to their God the innocent creatures of the earth, in place of the carnal nature within themselves." Thus, the great truth which Christians, Jews and Muslims fail to comprehend is that the religion which was and is the core of their own system of beliefs today, was at its essence of a purely spiritual nature -- wholly concerned with manifesting the Kingdom within -- and its reinterpretation by both the Jews and Christians as an organized religion with firm tenets of belief and doctrine, totally severed the believers from the Living Word which they sought to worship and be sanctified by.
When Judas betrayed Jesus, he believed he was doing good! Moreover, if the modern Jehovah's Witness, Evangelical Christian, or many sincere believers today were put in the position of Judas, they would in fact do the same exact thing. Why? Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, and the vast majority of Evangelical Christians are no different than Judas! Why? Because in not understanding the spiritual essence of the teachings of TheWay, Judas believed he could force the hand of Yeshua, and cause him to inaugurate the expected and predicted kingdom upon the earth. What this means is that the sincere Sadducee or Pharisee in the first century of our Common Era, were in fact religious brothers in common with the sincere Jew or Christian today! Each ardently awaits and prays for the kingdom to come upon the earth in their own time -- and each is equally ignoring the very essence of the Gospel Message!
While it is true that Jews have a greater excuse for their error, such is not the case from a Christian perspective. At Luke 17:20-21 we observe "Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you" (NIV). For two thousand years many who call themselves Christians, Jews and Muslims, have waited for the Kingdom of God to come upon the earth in vain. From a New Covenant perspective, the congregation of believers have been lied to and deceived by a body of self-appointed priests and clergy who have over the course of thousands of years brought suffering and hardships upon a naive and uninformed people -- a people who have been seduced into providing the monetary wealth that these false apostles have lived off of. From a New Covenant perspective, those who are found worthy of inheriting the promise of eternal life, and have thus prepared themselves to be a consecrated vessel within which the Holy Spirit can dwell, are permitted to enter the Temple of God within themselves, and be with the Lord while they are still physically alive in this world (see http://GateOfEden.com ). With respect to these souls who are truly saved and have gone to glory, they have attempted many times throughout the history of mankind to speak to their (Jewish/Christian/Muslim) brothers and sisters in the Gospel, but the greater number of the congregation of believers have refused to listen. As a people who profess to believe, they are unwilling to pick up their own crosses and actually walk in The Way, because they consider it too great a loss of the things of this world to be in the world and not of it! Thus, they refuse to follow Messiah/Christ:
(Matt 7:13-14 NKJ)
The 2nd century Church Father Clement of Alexandria wrote agreeing with Plato who that "...mystically called those Atheists who destroy and pollute, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that is, the Logos - by association with their vices”. Paul agrees with this and writes that those who come to the knowledge of Messiah/Christ, and then continue to sin and return to the ways of this world and they "...fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame" (Heb 6:6 NKJ) -- further warning: "For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. Anyone who has rejected Moses' law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? For we know Him who said, 'Vengeance is Mine; I will repay,' says the Lord. And again, 'The Lord will judge His people.' It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God" (Heb 10:26-31 NKJ).
The Apostle Peter even goes one step further when he states that those who continue to sin after coming to the knowledge of Messiah/Christ, will receive the greater judgment than those who are unbelievers: "For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: 'A dog returns to his own vomit,' and, 'a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire'" (2 Pet 2:20-22 NKJ). If full agreement with Peter, Paul warns that those who come to the table of the Lord -- drinking of His cup -- and yet, continue to sin, receive the greater damnation: "Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep" (1 Cor 11:27-30 NKJ).
Because Christians (as well as Jews and Muslims) have been totally alienated from the teachings of Yeshua and TheWay by virtue of their manmade dogma and doctrines -- and as a spiritually disenfranchised people, fail to even begin to comprehend either the process of spiritual development and evolution where the prodigal sons/daughters of God fulfill the requirement of perfection (Mt. 5:48) -- and they continue to sin after coming to the knowledge of Messiah/Christ -- Yeshua himself warns that the believers (Jews, Christians and Muslims) will receive the greater judgment and condemnation than the unbelievers who commit greater sins: "And that servant who knew his master's will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more" (Luke 12:47-48 NKJ). Which means that Christians, Jews and Muslims who continue to sin after coming to the knowledge of Messiah/Christ, will be judged more severely and beaten with more stripes than the non-believing sinners who they condemn!
The terms Logos, Son of God, and Word, are not indicative of a man such as the historical Yeshua/Jesus who through is absolute holiness arose to that heightened level of spirituality where he was able to become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ), and become a vessel for the Logos to indwell -- i.e., "...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) (see http://Ebionite.com ). Which is fundamentally the same exact reality expressed by Peter when he said: "You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good, and healing all who were oppressed by the devil; for God was with Him" (Acts 10:38 NAS). So Yeshua/Jesus the man, was Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by God, and it was the Power (Logos) of God working through him that spoke, performed miracles, and revealed TheWay for man to return to the Edeninc Kingdom of Origination which they must enter through the "narrow gate" within them ( http://GateOfEden.com ). Thus, Yeshua/Jesus was the human vessel through which the Logos or Son of God performed the miracles and spoke through: "The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works" (John 14:10 NAS).
the Recognitions Of Clement, Peter teaches his disciple Clement that it is the
Logos/Son of God who is portrayed as the True Prophet, dwells within the heart
and mind of all men:
"And therefore I advise not
only wise men, but indeed all men who have a desire of knowing what is
advantageous to them, that they seek after the true Prophet; for it is He alone
who knoweth all things, and who knoweth what and how every man is seeking. For
He is within the mind of every one of us, but in those who have no desire of the
knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative; but He works in those
who seek after that which is profitable to their souls, and kindles in them the
light of knowledge. Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him,
expect not that you shall learn anything from any other. But He is soon found by
those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth, and whose souls are not
taken possession of by wickedness. For He is present with those who desire Him
in the innocence of their spirits, who bear patiently, and draw sighs from the
bottom of their hearts through love of the truth; but He deserts malevolent
minds, because as a prophet He knows the thoughts of every one. And therefore
let no one think that he can find Him by his own wisdom, unless, as we have
said, he empty his mind of all wickedness, and conceive a pure and faithful
desire to know Him. For when any one has so prepared himself, He Himself as a
prophet, seeing a mind prepared for Him, of His own accord offers Himself to his
What does Peter say to us in these words? That the
True Prophet “is within the mind of every one of
concept is Spiritual -- and is the foundation of the Living Church that the Lord
inaugurated. Yeshua warned his followers not to go to a teacher or religious authority in
this world -- even when that teacher or authority says that he knows the
Messiah/Christ. What is very
clear in these words which are parallel and in harmony with the Bible, is the
followers of Yeshua were not to learn from men -- who themselves do not know --
and in true Spiritual-Gnostic fashion, they were only to go to the Source of all
Knowledge, the True Prophet.
From a first century Christian perspective, there is
only one way that you can learn and know the truth, and that is through your own
dormant spiritual nature. “Expect
not that you shall learn anything”, says Peter, if you attempt to
learn from the doctrines of men -- even when these men are the leaders of your
church, synagogue, mosque, or temple.
Why? Because Jesus
himself commanded: “But you, do not be called
'Rabbi'; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren”
(Matt 23:8 NKJ). Therefore,
whoever will teach you -- except by example and the manifestation of the Light
in their own lives -- from the perspective of the New Covenant, is a disciple of
Peter embodies the very essence of the genuine
teachings of The Way in the words: “But He is soon
found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth, and whose
souls are not taken possession of by wickedness. For He is present with those
who desire Him in the innocence of their spirits, who bear patiently, and draw
sighs from the bottom of their hearts through love of the truth”.
Logos, Son of God, Word of God, and True Prophet are Universal themes embraced
by all religious authorities the world over by those who seek the Kingdom
within. And what we are presented with are spiritual concepts of
major importance that need our careful attention.
First it is demonstrated that Plato knew, and wrote about the Logos.
And the flaw in
modern-day doctrinal perspective would be seen in the thought that Plato
wrote about Jesus prior to the time of Jesus’ incarnation -- which would be in
grave error! The personage of Yeshua/Jesus
was an Anointed vessel through whom the Logos indwelled -- i.e.,
"...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) (see http://Ebionite.com
). Which means that the Logos that is written about in the Gospel of John
where it reads: “In the beginning was the Word, and
the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1 KJV), is not
indicative of Yeshua/Jesus -- but rather, the Power of God that enlightens the
True Seeker of Light and TheWay -- which Power referred to as the Son of
God "...descended on Jesus in the form
of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted
period of his ministry”. Contrary,
then, to our present-day doctrines, we must conclude that Messiah/Christ is not
only Universal and within the minds and hearts of all men and women, but was
written about by the philosophers prior to the time of Yeshua.
Further, unless be begin to comprehend the difference between the name
Jesus and the term Christ, the only seriously flawed conclusion that can be
arrived at is that Jesus wrote through Plato in the same manner that he wrote
through the Hebrew prophets.
The Encyclopedia Britannica (1998 edition) writes of
the word Logos: “In Greek philosophy and theology,
the divine reason implicit in the cosmos, ordering it and giving it form and
meaning. Though the concept defined by the term logos is found in Greek, Indian,
Egyptian, and Persian philosophical and theological systems... The idea of the
logos in Greek thought harks back at least to the 6th-century-BC
philosopher Heracleitus, who discerned in the cosmic process a logos analogous
to the reasoning power in man. Later, the Stoics, philosophers who followed the
teachings of the thinker Zeno of Citium (4th-3rd century
BC), defined the logos as an active rational and spiritual principle that
permeated all reality... Philo of Alexandria, a 1st-century-AD Jewish
philosopher, taught that the logos was the intermediary between God and the
cosmos, being both the agent of creation and the agent through which the human
mind can apprehend and comprehend God. According to Philo and the Middle
Platonists, philosophers who interpreted in religious terms the teachings of the
4th-century-BC Greek master philosopher Plato, the logos was both
immanent in the world and at the same time the transcendent divine mind... The
identification of Jesus with the logos, which is implied in various places in
the New Testament but stated specifically in the Fourth Gospel, was further
developed in the early church but more on the basis of Greek philosophical
ideas... the early Christian Fathers stated that Christ as the preexistent logos
(1) reveals the Father to mankind and is the subject of the Old Testament
manifestations of God; (2) is the divine reason in which the whole human race
shares, so that the 6th-century-BC philosopher and others who lived
with reason were Christians before Christ; and (3) is the divine will and word
by which the worlds were framed”.
The concept of the Logos is so deeply imbedded in
Greek thought, that the Eleventh, or Scholars Edition of the Britannica which
was published prior to the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls writes that: “Among
the influences that shaped the Fourth Gospel that of the Alexandrian philosophy
must be assigned a distinct... importance”. Because of this very distinct Hellenic influence, many
Bible experts believed that the Gospel of John had been written by a Greek
convert. This is especially
seen in the statement by the Britannica where it writes: “What
John thus does is to take the Logos idea of Philo and use it for a practical
purpose -- to make more intelligible to himself and his readers the divine
nature of Jesus Christ. That this endeavor to work into the historical tradition
of the life and teaching of Jesus -- a hypothesis which had a distinctly foreign
origin -- led him into serious difficulties...”.
What this means is
that for us to know the Truth and TheWay, then each of us must live a spiritual
lifestyle that permits the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) to come upon us, which is
the only Spiritual Environment that permits the indwelling Logos or Son of God
to Manifest within us, and teach and reveal to us the Mysteries of God that Paul
warned that the believers of the simple faith will look upon as "foolishness"
-- Higher Mysteries of the Gosple that Yeshua could only teach to those who
underwent the process of spiritual transformation -- Mysteries so far beyond the
comprehension of natural man, that he portrayed these higher realities as
"...so astounding that they are beyond a man's power to describe or put
in words (and anyway I am not allowed to tell them to others)”
(2 Cor 12:1-4 TLB).
vast majority of Jews, Christians and Muslims cannot receive the Spiritual
Teachings of Yeshua/Jesus -- they cannot receive the Spiritual Torah that the
Jews could not receive because they worshiped the golden calf -- and the vast
majority of Muslims cannot make the journey to the Spiritual Mecca and the
Distant Mosque within them -- because they crucify Messiah/Christ by their adherence
to manmade doctrines and the sinful lives they live -- i.e., while they call
upon the name of the Lord with their lips, they are
destroy and pollute, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that
is, the Logos - by association with their vices”.
“Not everyone who says to
me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the
will of my Father who is in heaven.”
What is the will of the Father?
That you grow to maturity and that “You,
therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect”
(Matt 5:48 RSV). And
regarding those who have permitted themselves to be seduced by the false prophets
and counterfeit religious leaders of this world, Yeshua/Jesus has said of them: “Many
will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and
in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell
them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’”
The word translated “destruction”,
as in Matthew 7:14 where it is written that those who walk the broad-way that
leads to destruction, the footnote on this word in the Schofield Reference Bible
reads: “There is no thought in these various words of
annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to
fulfill its original purpose”.
The spiritual shepherd of this group has entered this world many times to guide those who are truly faithful to the Lord into the journey of TheWay and the Light. In the first century he lived as that person who was historically known as Jacob/James, the Brother of Yeshua/Jesus. In the present time many of the original Disciples of Yeshua have in like manner re-entered this world in order to work together to re-establish the Spiritual Essenes of Yeshua's teachings. While there is a Brother Of Yeshua site at http://BrotherOfYeshua.com , this is one of many sites that each present the original teachings of Yeshua in a presentable way for the reader to comprehend and begin the journey into the Kingdom of Light. A listing of these many web sites will be provided below.
As a group, many of us have been together over a period of time, and been nourished by the Manna/Knowledge from Heaven that sustains and opens the mind of all who partake of the Spiritual Gnosis reserved only for Disciples of TheWay. Paul commanded those who seek the Truth and TheWay to "shun foolish controversies and genealogies and strife and disputes about the Law; for they are unprofitable and worthless. Reject a factious (promotes a sect) man after a first and second warning, knowing that such a man is perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned" (Titus 3:9-11 NAS). Why? Because the Bible teaches that it is impossible for men of a "natural" mindset to comprehend the true meaning of the scriptures, and in their blindness and spiritual ignorance they will denounce the Mysteries of God as "foolishness"! This fact is explored in the article on the Abysmal Pursuit Of God By The Letter that Killeth -- and is the essence of the reason why Paul condemned anyone who promotes an opinion, doctrine or sect as being turned out of TheWay -- is "...perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned". Why? Because the teachings of Yeshua and TheWay is not a system of beliefs -- but rather, a mindset, manner of thinking and lifestyle that permits entrance into the Kingdom within (see Gate Of Eden). So if you are going to come here and tell us your doctrine that is based upon what you perceive in the literal text of the Bible, or is promoted by the manmade doctrines of your church, then you will be considered by us to be someone who is turned out of TheWay.
If you think that you can read a book -- or listen to clergy who base their theology on Church doctrine which has been molded by 4th century Pagan Rome -- and tell a group of people, many of whom themselves lived as disciples and followers of Yeshua/Jesus -- guided by a man who lived as Jacob/James, who was known as the Brother Of Yeshua/Jesus -- then you truly need your head examined! Further, if you squander away the opportunity of being yourself guided by those who can assist you in your journey in search of the Kingdom within (Luke 17:20-21), where you can learn in the Presence of the Lord, then you are neither faithful to the teachings of Yeshua and TheWay, and you deserve the spiritual death from walking the broad-way of self destruction that the Bible warns of (see Gate Of Eden).
If you are a Jew, then we will endeavor to assist you in receiving the Spiritual Torah that the Children of Israel could not receive because they were of a carnal mind as portrayed in the worship of the golden calf. As warned in the Zohar: "Thus the tales related in the Torah are simply her outer garments, and woe to the man who regards that outer garb as the Torah itself, for such a man will be deprived of portion in the next world". That the Torah is an allegory which portrays spiritual truths that the natural mind of man is unable to perceive of, is presented on the web site No Jew Has Read The Torah. The historical Yeshua/Jesus did not come to start a new religion called Christianity -- or any religion by any other name. The historical Yeshua was an Essene who had totally fulfilled the Law within himself, and he taught spiritually disenfranchised Jews who were led in the wrong direction by counterfeit shepherds, how to enter the Kingdom within.
you are a Christian, we will assist you in ridding your thinking of the
doctrines imposed upon the Church by the Emperor Constantine in the fourth
century (see The Death Of The
Religion Of Jesus). We will show you that the genuine disciples
of Yeshua were all murdered, and the New Testament scriptures were edited to
reflect the very Pagan beliefs of Rome (see The
Orthodox Corruption Of The Scriptures). And if you note that the
original scriptures portrayed Yeshua as becoming the Anointed (Messiah/Christ)
at his baptism in the Jordan when the voice of our Heavenly Father said to him: "Thou
art my Son, this day have I begotten thee"
(see The Ten Words),
then you will begin the process of freeing yourself from the shackles of manmade
doctrines imposed upon the Church by Pagan Rome, that has condemned the vast
majority of Christians to the dungeon of darkness and the abyss of spiritual
ignorance since the fourth century. It is well documented that the
original disciples of Yeshua did not believe he was God -- but rather 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).
Which means that in worshiping Jesus instead of imitating him as the
pattern for all to follow, modern Christian has reduced themselves to a people
who worship a false god and are turned out of TheWay. As presented
on the Ebionite web site, the original
disciples of Yeshua believed that he "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." Hence,
when each person "
Which means that in worshiping Jesus instead of imitating him as the pattern for all to follow, modern Christian has reduced themselves to a people who worship a false god and are turned out of TheWay.

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." Hence, when each person "...thus fulfills the law, they are able to become Christs" (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).
you are a Muslim, then we will guide you in TheWay to become a spiritual
Muslim. Mohammad came to restore the teachings of TheWay because
they had become severely corrupted by Rome and the Christians. The
father of Mohammad's first wife was the Ebionite Elder in Mecca, and his uncle
was a Nestorian monk who had been banished from the empire because they were
known to be Gnostic. Mohammad did not adopt beliefs as Atheists
suppose -- but rather, because of the Gnostic-Ebionite influences, he learned
how to enter the Kingdom which is portrayed as the cave -- which is a
traditional way to represent those who have journeyed into the
Kingdom. This is seen in the portrayal of Elijah in the words: "And there he went into a cave, and spent the night in that place; and behold, the word of the LORD came to
him" (1 King 19:9 NKJ). This inner communication
with the Lord is represented in the "still small
voice" (1 King 19:12 NKJ) that teaches the Disciple who journeys
into the inner Kingdom (see Gate Of Eden).
Because Judaism and Christianity had become corrupted and defiled, Mohammad
wrote the Koran or Qur'an in the language and traditions of the people who he
presented it to. Like the Torah and all scriptures, it is an
allegory that portrays quasi-historical accounts which the disciple understands
he must turn within himself and perceive what appears to be historical and
literal as events of the mind and spirit as the Spiritual Muslim endeavors to
enter the Kingdom within. In the same way that the Torah
is an allegory composed in a manner that it would be acceptable to carnal Jews
(see Torah Allegory), the
Koran was composed in the manner that is was so the allegory would be acceptable
to carnal Arabs.
The passage in Quran 17:1 -- known as the Sura of the Night Journey -- does not refer to a miraculous trip from Mecca to the Jerusalem of this world -- but rather, to the Spiritual Jerusalem that is within. The text of the Quranic passage says, according to a translation, "Praise be to Him who took His servant by night from the Al-Haram [Sacred] Mosque [in Mecca] to the Al-Aqsa [literally 'the most distant'] Mosque, whose environs We did bless, so that We might show him some of Our signs, for He is the All-Hearing and All-Seeing One." The Distant Mosque can only be entered by those who make the journey to the Mecca within -- rather than the Mecca or Jerusalem of this world -- and can only be found by true Muslim which is defined as one who is totally dedicated to God. In the same way that both Judaism and Christianity became corrupted by carnal perceptions of the scriptures and counterfeit shepherds, the religion of Islam has suffered the same fate. The requirement that every Muslim must attempt the journey to Mecca at least once in his life, is an allegorical portrayal of the necessity to seek the Kingdom within and enter the Distant Mosque that is in the Spiritual Mecca that is not of this world.
You Will Know Them By Their Fruits Of The Spirit
Without exception, each of us reaps what we sow. All people are tested -- and in our present time all Muslims are being tested. Is a Muslim someone who with their lips professes to be a Muslim? Or is a Muslim one who is so dedicated to God, that the Peace and Light manifests in them? Under Sharia Law, an unmarried woman who has sex outside of marriage is stoned -- often by her own family because she has disgraced them. In our present time any Muslim who kills, or does not manifest the required peace and love in their lives, are unfaithful and a disgrace to the teachings of the Qu'ran. And in this respect, all Muslims are being tested -- i.e., how long will they permit the unfaithful to promote terrorism and the murder of innocent children? If the infidels are not stoned from within Islam itself, then all of Islam will be judged. Therefore, all Muslims who remain quiet will themselves be cursed -- and will receive the fruit of their own violence in the future. It is sacrilegious for a people who kill babies, to claim an alliance with Yeshua.
In our present time there is a group of sincere Muslims who have arisen and openly state that if Islam will promote itself as a religion of peace, then Islam must manifest that peace as an example to the rest of the world -- a world which is presently questioning the validity of Islam because of its failure to speak out and oppose those who murder innocent men, women and children in the name of God. Muslims are at present being tested, and only those few such as the Free Muslim Coalition Against Terrorism will even be considered to be genuine Muslims (see http://www.freemuslims.org/ ). All who remain silent, are self-condemned.
As written recently by Khaled Kishtainy, columnist at Al-Sharq Al-Awsat Newspaper, “I place on the Islamic intellectuals and leaders of Islamic organizations part of the responsibility for [this phenomenon] of Islamic terrorism, as nearly all of them advocate violence, and repress anyone who casts doubts upon this. Naturally, every so often they have written about the love and peace of Islam – but they did so, at best, for purposes of propaganda and defense of Islam. Their basic position is that this religion was established by the sword, acts by the sword, and will triumph by the sword, and that any doubt regarding this constitutes a conspiracy against the Muslims.” The Coalition finds this sympathetic support for terrorists by Muslim leaders and intellectuals to be a dangerous trend and the Coalition will challenge these beliefs and target the sympathetic support given to terrorists by Muslims.
The Coalition encourages Muslims and Arabs to be proud of their faith and at the same time critical. The community of the faithful must now take steps to bring Islam into the 21st century. As the Coalition’s founder recently said, "The only way that we as a people can make a profound difference and improve the quality of life for all Muslims is if all of us make a difference individually." Other Americans have spoken up against terrorism, but never before has this message come with such clarity from Muslims or Arabs. Muslims are the only ones who can resolve the problem of terror in Islam, and sadly until the founding of this Coalition, they were the only group who had not definitively spoken up against the use of terror.
Each of the three religions possess important truths that are lacking in the other two -- and because there is conflict one with the other, the vast majority of Jews, Christians and Muslims have permitted themselves to be banished from the Jewish Promised Land, the Christian Kingdom of God, and the Muslim Distant Mosque. While the Jews have correctly rejected the Jesus-god which was created by Constantine and Pagan Rome, they reject their own Yeshua who so fulfilled the Law within himself, that he proved the teachings of the Jewish prophets -- i.e., quoting the Ebionite HomePage: Yeshua/Jesus, they asserted, "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." Hence, when followers "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs" (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34). Thus, while the Law (Moses) is able to free the seekers from the House of Bondage (Egypt), and take the Jew through the wilderness, only Joshua can take them across the Jordan and into the Promised Land. The English rendering of Yeshua is Joshua -- and these names are mistranslated Jesus (Zeus-Isis) by the Christians. Thus, the Jews cannot cross the Jordan without embracing the life of Yeshua and TheWay. The Christians who turned back to the world, and live carnal lifestyles in accord with the ways of this world -- worshiping Constantine's Jesus-god instead of imitating Messiah/Christ -- have so crucified Christ by virtue of their manmade doctrines of belief and carnal lifestyle, that they have made themselves apostates to the teachings of Yeshua, and have obstructed their path into the Kingdom that can only be entered by picking up their own cross and following in the footsteps of the Master. Islam was brought into being because the Jews continued to look to the letter of the written word, and when the Christians entered into a covenant relationship with Pagan-Rome, they rendered the teachings of Yeshua to no effect in the believers journey into the Kingdom within. Islam is supposed to be the religion of peace and love -- but in turning to hideous and abominable acts of violence -- even to the degree of murdering innocent children and helpless women -- they are self condemned! The jihad is supposed to be the inner war in overcoming self as the true Muslim makes the required journey to the Spiritual Mecca within, and is so consumed with a consecrated life in dedication to the Most High God, that they are able to enter the Distant Mosque that is placed in the Spiritual Jerusalem that is not of this world. And the Muslims who are not anchored to this world by a ritual observance of the Torah, or the worship of Constantine's Jesus-god, are supposed to be a Light that guides the seeker into the Kingdom within (see http://GateOfEden.com ). But because the religion of Islam has permitted itself to be led by heinous men of violence who thrive on human suffering and grief -- making themselves an abomination to the Most High God by virtue of their total lack of love and peace -- and have therefore obstructed their path to the Distant Mosque which exists in the Spiritual Mecca within that is not of this world -- and have made those who follow these counterfeit men of God the children of hell.
We are the prodigal sons who dwell in the "far country... and outer darkness" of this world, and we can only return to the Promised Land -- the Edeninc Kingdom of Origination -- or the Spiritual Jerusalem and Mecca that is not of this world -- when we purify ourselves and consecrate our lives in the Truth of the Light and TheWay, only then have we fulfilled the Torah of Moses, the teachings of Yeshua, and the wisdom of Mohammed.
Quoting Prof. Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls, Prof. Burrows writes: “There are those who believe or assume that the Greek and Hebrew texts from which our translations are made are infallible. No person who has studied textual criticism at all could believe that. The most conservative scholars in the most conservative churches recognize that the text has become corrupt at many points in the course of its transmission. If that were not already well known and universally admitted, the Dead Sea Scrolls would demonstrate it conclusively.”
Quoting the Epistle Of Light -- i.e., Epistle Of James To Pope John Paul II (see http://EpistleOfLight.com ). If you want pure uncorrupted scriptures, then send a copy of the Epistle to the Pope requesting that he release to the people the copies that are hidden away in the Vatican Library:
Excerpt From The Epistle Of Light
Epistle Of James To Pope John Paul II
What the great majority of believers and scholars realize today, is the fact that even during that period of spiritual darkness when the Church was ruled by the Emperors of Rome, there existed sincere priests within the Church who recognized the importance of many of the pre-Nicene documents and copies of the scriptures -- and it was these documents which were hidden away in the most secret of archives of the Vatican Library. It has been shown to me when I was taken into the Kingdom, that among these important early documents is a copy of what is known as the Gospel of the Hebrews or Ebionites, and its release at this time is of the greatest importance in the return of the Prince of Peace and the restoral of the True Living Church of Messiah/Christ in the world. It might also be noted that the release of this and other more pure copies of the scriptures is well within your power to accomplish.
At the present time many of the original disciples of Yeshua/Jesus have been sent back into life in order to bring about the coming spiritual restoral of the Living Church. In the year 325 when the dark forces of Constantine set about re-writing and destroying the more pure copies of the scriptures, the true disciples of Messiah/Christ (both Ebionite/Nazirene and Gentile) set about burying libraries of scriptures so they could be rediscovered in the future. The first of the scriptures to be rewritten by Constantine and corrupted was the Book of Acts, and the genuine followers of Yeshua/Jesus used the numbers in this corrupted gospel as a key to the discovery of the concealed libraries which would restore the spiritual essence of the Living Church of Messiah/Christ. As an example: To demonstrate even the known great variances in the texts of this book, I will put on record the words of the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading of Codex Bezae, where it is written: "Codex Bezae… has a text that is very different from other witnesses. Codex Bezae has many distinctive longer and shorter readings and seems almost to be a separate edition. Its 'Acts, for example, is one-tenth longer than usual’". You can gain great insight as to the extent of the corruption of the scriptures in the article entitled The Orthodox Corruption of the Bible @ http://nazirene.org/corruption.htm .
Knowing that you are sincere in your dedication to my brother Yeshua/Jesus, it has been told to me that it would be totally unfair not to give you the opportunity to tell the people the truth prior to these libraries of scriptures being uncovered. It has been further shown to me that you are being provided with choices -- i.e., if you release these early hidden documents, both you and the Catholic Church will be looked upon as a positive force in the spiritual restoral of the Living Church of Messiah/Christ; but if you fail to release these documents and tell the people the truth, then both you and the Church of Rome will be viewed as an obstacle to the Light and TheWay. At present I am guiding and training up disciples of TheWay through both my forums and many web sites, and some of these people will soon have the knowledge of where these vast libraries of scriptures are hidden restored to their memory, so they can be retrieved for the spiritual nourishment of the faithful flock of believers. It has been shown to me from On High that if these libraries of scriptures are rediscovered prior to your releasing the scriptures that are hidden away in the most secret archives of the Vatican, then the Church of Rome will no longer play a viable role in the restoral and future of the Living Church of Messiah/Christ. I therefore implore you to walk the highest path of TheWay -- i.e., TheWay of Peace and Light and Spiritual Truth and Knowledge -- and immediately release these most ancient of documents into the hands of a sincere flock of believers who perpetually pray to the Lord to give them greater understanding of the Gospel. The choice is yours to make, and is in your hands. Act quickly, before the appointed time has past, and the Lord employs other means to bring about the spiritual restoration of the Church of Messiah/Christ.
Peace, Love and Light in TheWay,
Brother of Yeshua
And Jesus himself sat down in their midst and said: "I tell you truly, none can be happy, except he do the Law." And the others answered: "We all do the laws of Moses, our lawgiver, even as they are written in the holy scriptures." And Jesus answered: "Seek not the law in your scriptures, for the law is life, whereas the scripture is dead. I tell you truly, Moses received not his laws from God in writing, but through the living word. The law is living word of living God to living prophets for living men... God wrote not the laws in the pages of books, but in your heart and in your spirit... But you shut your eyes that you may not see, and you shut your ears that you may not hear. I tell you truly, that the scripture is the work of man, but life and all its hosts are the work of our God. Wherefore do you not listen to the words of God which are written in His works? And wherefore do you study the dead scriptures which are the work of the hands of men?" How may we read the laws of God elsewhere than in the scriptures? Where are they written? Read them to us from there where you see them, for we know nothing else but the scriptures which we have inherited from our forefathers. Tell us the laws of which you speak, that hearing them we may be healed and justified. Jesus said: "You do not understand the words of life, because you are in death. Darkness darkens your eyes and your ears are stopped with deafness. For I tell you, it profits you not at all that you pore over dead scriptures if by your deeds you deny him who has given you the scriptures."

The 10 words
There are 10 words that were altered from their original context in the New Testament that have the power to re-establish the essence of the teachings of Yeshua which was known as TheWay. These 10 words demonstrate conclusively that the text of the New Testament has been altered in order to make it support the doctrines of the Pagan Roman/Greek world. These 10 words further demonstrate that the essence of the teachings of Yeshua has little in common with the Christian religion today. In fact, these 10 words are to Christianity what the 10 Commandments were to Judaism -- i.e., the foundation from which every other aspect of the religion springs forth!
The Church Threw Away The Keys Of Knowledge - Blinded Their Eyes - Hardened Their Hearts - And Made Themselves Latter Day Pharisees: Christians are in denial - they see not, hear not, their hearts have been hardened, and they fail to perceive the Living Word. For exactly the same reasons as the Pharisees, modern Christians reject Yeshua and have made themselves apostates to TheWay!
Uniform Teachings Of Moses, Yeshua and Mohammad
While to the entry-level people of the simple faith, the Law of Moses, the teachings of Yeshua in the New Testament, and that of Mohammad in the Koran may appear on the surface to be different, the inner spiritual meaning and revelation is identical. And while this may be difficult for the vast majority of Jews, Christians and Muslims to perceive and comprehend, this is because the people of the simple faith are blind to the true spiritual meaning of their own religious texts. In the words of the Zohar with respect to the Torah: “The narratives of the doctrine are its cloak. The simple look only on the garment, that is upon the narrative of the doctrine; more they know not. The instructed, however, see not merely the cloak, but what the cloak covers”. In the words of the Church Father Origen: “It is sufficient however, to represent in the style of a historic narrative what is intended to convey a secret meaning in the garb of history, that those who have the capacity may work out for themselves all that relates to the subject.” And with regard to what would otherwise be historical symbols and events that would appear to us as the knowledge of superficial episodes of the past, Origen writes: “I believe that every man must hold these things for images, under which the hidden sense lies concealed” (Origen - Huet., Prigeniana, 167 Franck, p. 142).
The Law is Spiritual! Yeshua commanded his disciples to Observe and Fulfill the Law/Torah. Not in the ritualistic manner of the Jews, but in a Spiritual manner by turning the Torah within them in the endeavor to open the Inner Narrow Door to the Kingdom. By doing this, Yeshua became the Lord's Anointed (Messiah/Christ), and One with that Principle known as the Indwelling Son of God.
The Disciple of the Lord is always a Nazirene -- i.e., the People of the Vow -- a Consecrated and Anointed Chosen One of the Lord who is set apart from the world. Only those who are of the Vow of the Nazirene can know the Mysteries of God and the inner meaning of the Law/Torah that is the Keys of Knowledge that opens the Inner Door to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.
The path of the Disciple of TheWay is a personal calling for the more mature believer. The Disciple must be willing to make the service to God the paramount and exclusive focus of their life. Such a person must become a person of absolute dedication to the Lord as a Servant in the calling and care of His flock.
One Teacher and Rabbi in TheWay: In the Purity of the teachings of The Way, there can be no sects -- no opinions -- no manmade doctrines of belief -- no churches which call themselves by a name that separates them from another! In the Purity of the teachings of The Way, there is only One Teacher -- The Messiah -- and all genuine shepherds who are faithful to the Lord are merely guides who point The Way to the Presence of the Son of God. The disciple must therefore learn to apply the Key of Knowledge in their life so they can use it to open the inner "strait gate" to the Kingdom within.
The Kingdom Must be Entered While Physically Alive: As the Disciple follows in the footsteps of Yeshua and journeys in The Way, they are not only able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven through the "strait gate", but as they continue to develop spiritually, they are able to simultaneously exist both in this world and in the Kingdom at the same time. This is the fulfillment of the Commandment of the Lord to be in the world and not of it!
The Soul That Evolves to Perfection: Yeshua/Jesus taught that the soul of man evolves to perfection over the course of many lives. The Disciples of TheWay believed in reincarnation? You, therefore, cannot even be considered a true follower of Yeshua/Jesus, and not believe in reincarnation? Click the Lighthouse on the left and learn the answer to this profound and all-important paradoxical question that Jews and Christians today are unable to answer! It will shock you to learn the truth!
You Must Be Born Again to Enter the Kingdom: Jews and Christians of the simple faith are as a fetus when compared to a Mature Disciple of Messiah/Christ! Are you pro-life? Traditional Church doctrines abort more Christians with respect to entering into Life, than does all the abortion clinics in the world. More Jews and Christians die by walking the Broad-way of Destruction because they cling to manmade doctrines of belief! They fail to embrace the words of Yeshua/Jesus when he commanded: "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NIV)
How Did Yeshua Become the Messiah/Christ? The Bible teaches that Jesus was a man who became the Messiah/Christ for the first time at his baptism, and the Son of God at the crucifixion. His disciples believed that Jesus was a man who was in mystical union with the Indwelling Logos/Word. How much of modern Christian dogma which is founded upon Plato's Doctrine of the Trinity is valid in the life of the modern Christian today? You will be shocked to learn the truth!
Things Christians Never Told Jews About the New Testament Scriptures. Did you know that the New Testament states that G-d did not want the majority of Jews to accept Jesus as the Messiah? Not only the New Testament scriptures, but this fact is also confirmed in the Epistles of Paul, as well as the writings of Clement, the disciple of the Apostle Peter! Why? Because it was known beforehand that many of the Gentiles would be unable to embrace the higher concepts of the teachings of TheWay which came to be called Christianity -- and because the teachings themselves would become defiled and corrupted with Pagan/heathen concepts of religion, Judaism needed to be preserved separate, in order to preserve the bedrock from which truth could once again emerge more easily in the future.
The Orthodox Corruption of the Scriptures: Was the Bible rewritten? Prof. Nestle writes: "Learned men, so called Correctores were, following the church meeting at Nicea 325 AD, selected by the church authorities to scrutinize the sacred texts and rewrite them in order to correct their meaning in accordance with the views which the church had just sanctioned." To ignore the facts is to alienate oneself from the Living Word of God
The Gospel of the Nazirenes: What did the Gospels look like before being edited and re-written by the Church of Rome? What were the original beliefs of the first followers of Yeshua? You will be astonished when you read a surviving text of The Gospel of the Nazirenes which was hidden away from the corrupters of the Roman Church. Are you ready for a truly enlightening experience?
The Secret Doctrine of Christianity: The Original Church was Spiritually Wholistic. It served the needs of the sinner through the milk of the simple faith - the seeker through the revelation of the Minor Mysteries - the Spiritually Mature through Gnostic Revelation. Come and learn the true teachings of Jesus that was taught only to his genuine disciples.
Lilith - The Demonic Reality Of Feminism: In the Divine Pattern of Creation man and woman are not only equal, but the mental/spiritual level of one polarity directly affects and limits the other. The spiritual ignorance of many religious groups today is directly in proportion to the failure of men and women to interact and move into a state of spiritual harmony and balance.
Anthology Of Fools - Conflict Of Atheist & Believer: Atheists proclaim the tenets of a science they fail to embrace as apostates. And while the criticize religion and the Bible, they surrender their own gift of reason to contend with blind believers of the simple faith. In rejecting their own science, they are more dead and irrational than the religious people they judge and condemn!
As Nazirenes we know that it is sinful and turned out of TheWay to argue over manmade doctrines and carnal concepts of the meaning of the scriptures. As disciples of the Vow of the Nazirene, we seek Total and Absolute Oneness with the Lord in the manner that Yeshua/Jesus taught, and the whole focus of our religion is to learn what we must do in our lives to bring this Intimate Union with our Creator/God about. As the Prodigal Sons and Daughters of our Heavenly Father, we seek to release ourselves from the carnal and elemental limitations of this world, and walk in TheWay on our return journey back to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination that we emerged from in the beginning.
.TheWay of the Nazirene Disciple
Nazirene means "keeper of TheWay"
The profound long-suspected truth about Christianity became an indisputable fact when Dead Sea Scroll expert and biblical scholar A. Powell Davies expressed the immortal words when he said: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls). Worse yet, Edmund Wilson, an expert who worked on the Dead Sea Scrolls further raised the question as to what difference it makes if “Jesus... had been trained in the discipline and imbued with the thought of a certain Jewish sect, and that he had learned from it the role that he afterwards lived...” (The Scrolls From The Dead Sea). To the uninformed and unknowing believer, it made all the difference in the world!
At about the same time the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in a cave, a library of early Christian scriptures was uncovered at Nag Hammadi in upper Egypt. Because of the nature of these writings, our scholars believe that these scriptures belonged to a sect of Gnostic Christians. Yet, the understanding that was engendered from the study of these writings was profound, even from a purely historical perspective. What they learned from the study of these writings again confirmed that the faithful flock had once again for a very long time believed a lie with respect to the first Gentile Christians -- a lie that again had been published by the Church of Constantine. In the words of Prof. Elaine Pagles in her book, The Gnostic Gospels, the condemnation of the early Gnostic Christians by the Roman Church had “political implications”. What she said was that the denunciation of the Gnostic Christians was “crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion. In simplest terms, ideas which bear implications contrary to that development come to be labeled as heresy; ideas which implicitly support it become orthodox”. What this meant was that what is today considered traditional Christian doctrine, was formed in the fourth century for purely political reasons in order to support the Church that the Roman Emperor Constantine authored and founded.
of just how far the Christian Church has deviated from its original spiritual
path known as TheWay, is seen in the fact that throughout most of the Christian
world today the words mysticism and gnosticism are words more appropriately used
to describe heresy and heretics -- and yet, in the words of Dead Sea Scroll
expert Prof. John Allegro in is book, The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Origins of
Christianity, he writes:
is a fact that the Qumran Library has profoundly affected the study of the
Johannine writings and many longheld conceptions have had to be radically
No longer can John be regarded as the most Hellenistic of the
Evangelists; his gnosticism, and the whole framework of his thought is seen now
to spring directly from a Jewish sectarianism rooted in Palestinian soil, and
his material recognized as founded in the earliest layers of Gospel
TheWay is a purely spiritual path that enables man to overcome and transcend the limitations of this world, and enter through the "strait gate" into the inner Kingdom of God while still alive in the physical body. While these teachings of the Master of TheWay who has been historically known as Yeshua/Jesus have come to be associated with a Church of this world -- and reinterpreted from a carnal perspective to be a religion of faith and redemption -- this was not their original intent. At the core of these sacred teachings is the spiritual revelation of the path that man must sojourn as he seeks the Ultimate Answers to Life -- the unfoldment of our true nature as the Children of God -- and the knowledge that the prodigal sons and daughters of the Heavenly Father must possess to journey in TheWay, and return to the Kingdom of Origination.
In his world-wide internet ministry Allan teaches that when Yeshua/Jesus proclaimed that there is only "one way" to enter the Kingdom of God, that this neither indicated the belief in an historical man or membership in an institutionalized church -- but rather, in that Principle which is known as the Son of God which can only be found by the Children of the Light who seek the Truth and TheWay in the spiritual essence of their hearts and minds. That man has attempted to build an institutionalized church of this world around the teachings of Messiah/Christ in the same way that the Sadducees and Pharisees did, is merely man's inability to perceive and comprehend his own higher spiritual nature and reality. And while the churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples of this world are necessary as an out-calling to the prodigal sons and daughters who are lost in this world of the outer darkness, the True Temple can only be entered by seeking within one's self in a purified heart and mind.
You are Invited to the Table of the Lord where you will receive Spiritual Knowledge
Christians/Jews of the simple faith,
In relation to Mature Spiritual Christians/Jews
Can be likened to the relationship between
A fetus and a Mature Adult
The Mystic and Spiritual Christian/Jew, opens the Inner Door to the Lord
True followers of Messiah/Christ
Enter the Inner Kingdom
while still physically alive in the body/vessel
An Unanswerable Question of Profound importance!
Can Christians believe in reincarnation? Or, can you even be considered a true follower of Yeshua/Jesus, and not believe in reincarnation? Click the Lighthouse on the left and learn the answer to this profound and all-important paradoxical question that Christians today are unable to answer! It will shock you to learn the truth!
So You Want to Know the Truth!
You too can be a Mystic! All people have the innate ability as the Offspring of God to Know the Truth -- it is inborn in you. But to know the Truth, you must be willing to seek your true spiritual roots -- and then live in accordance with your Royal Heritage. Our temporal politically correct culture, as well as the limited philosophy and doctrines of the men of this world, will only alienate you from the Truth you seek to know.
Babe's In Christ are as a Fetus!
Christians of the simple faith are as a fetus when compared to a Mature Disciple of Messiah/Christ! Church doctrines abort more Christians with respect to entering into Life, than does all the abortion clinics in the world. More Christians die by walking the Broad-way of Destruction because they cling to manmade doctrines of belief, and in Yeshua/Jesus' words: "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NIV)
World-wide Ministry of TheWay of the Nazirene
The Vow of the Nazirene: The Disciple of the Lord is always a Nazirene -- i.e., a Consecrated and Anointed Chosen One of the Lord who is set apart from the world.
The Path of the Disciple: The path to become a Disciple of the Lord is a personal calling for the more mature believer that goes far beyond the common religion of the people of the simple faith.
The Sower and the Seed: The Essence of the Journey in The Way is revealed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed. The great truths that are revealed in this all-important teaching is a guide for all who desire to become a disciple of the Lord!
The Law: What does it mean to live in accordance with the Law of God? Yeshua/Jesus said that it was absolutely necessary to live in accordance with the Law -- but do we understand what that means?
Modern Science has proven Hebrew/Christian Mysticism: Our culture, secular school systems, modern church doctrine, all work together to inhibit people from knowing the Higher Truths and reality of our own soul and spiritual nature -- and alienate us from God.
To know the Truth, one must reject the doctrines of men: God is universal, and can only be found by those who set aside manmade doctrines of belief and carnal perceptions of life and man's higher reality.
The Messiah/Christ can never come as men believe: Once the scriptures are properly understood, the Messiah/Christ will never come in the manner that both Jews and Christians predict.
The Gospel of the Nazirenes: What was the original message of the scriptures prior to being rewritten by the fourth century Church of Rome? Most believers and non-believers alike will be shocked when they gaze upon the True Message of Messiah/Christ!
Reincarnation, the Key to Christianity: How did Christianity become an institutionalized religion that is turned out of The Way? Through a hostile government take-over where the true followers of Yeshua/Jesus were murdered, the scriptures altered, and history written to support the position of the Emperor Constantine and the Roman Empire. Read this astounding eye-witness account of the rape of mankind that disenfranchised all people from the Truth and the Knowledge of TheWay.
The below web sites are written in the name of Allan Cronshaw, which is my birth name in this present life. The manner in which these web sites are composed is to document and demonstrate every proof and concept of TheWay using a multitude of resources and biblical verses. In the recently discovered Gospel of Thomas it is written: (12) The disciples said to Jesus, "We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader?" Jesus said to them, "Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being." So to once again restore the teachings of TheWay which is today known as Christianity, the Lord has sent Jacob/James, the Brother of Yeshua/Jesus, back into the world in order to guide the faithful flock into the Truth, the Light, and the Kingdom within (Luke 17:20-21). It is there that my brother Yeshua/Jesus awaits you.
The above warning with respect to the predicted corruption of Yeshua's teachings is further stated in the first century writings known today as the Clementine Recognitions where it is written: "Our Lord and Prophet, who hath sent us, declared to us that the wicked one, having disputed with Him forty days, and having prevailed nothing against Him, promised that he would send apostles from amongst his subjects, to deceive. Wherefore, above all, remember to shun apostle or teacher or prophet who does not first accurately compare his preaching with that of James, who was called the brother of my Lord, and to whom was entrusted to administer the church of the Hebrews in Jerusalem, — and that even though he come to you with witnesses: lest the wickedness which disputed forty days with the Lord, and prevailed nothing, should afterwards, like lightning falling from heaven upon the earth, send a preacher to your injury, as now he has sent Simon upon us, preaching, under pretense of the truth, in the name of the Lord, and sowing error. Wherefore He who hath sent us, said, ‘Many shall come to me in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. By their fruits ye shall know them.’"
Again it is warned by Clement: "Wherefore observe the greatest caution, that you believe no teacher, unless he bring from Jerusalem the testimonial of James the Lord’s brother, or of whosoever may come after him. For no one, unless he has gone up thither, and there has been approved as a fit and faithful teacher for preaching the word of Christ, — unless, I say, he brings a testimonial thence, is by any means to be received. But let neither prophet nor apostle be looked for by you at this time, besides us. For there is one true Prophet, whose words we twelve apostles preach"
As predicted, the ministers of Satan have succeeded in altering the teachings of my brother Yeshua, and continue to lead many into the abyss of darkness. But have no fear my brothers and sisters, for the teachings of TheWay has been restored so that you might be able to overcome the darkness, and enter the Kingdom of Light within you (Luke 17:20-21).
The Brother Of Yeshua/Jesus: 2000 years ago I lived as Jacob who many all James, and I was known as the Brother of Yeshua and the first leader of the New Covenant movement of TheWay which is today known as Christianity. I was sent back into the world to restore the teachings of my brother Yeshua to their original spiritual essence, and to guide you in TheWay that is "narrow" so you will be able to open the "strait gate" within you and enter the Kingdom that Yeshua declared must be attained through the second birth.
The Ebionite HomePage: If you call yourself a Christian, Jew, Messianic believer, Evyonim, Nazarene or Muslim, then it is imperative that you learn of the Ebionites who are True Spiritual Israel -- They are the Poor Ones to the ways and thinking of this world -- The Ebionites were the Israelites of the Nazirene Vow They are/were the Genuine Disciples of Yeshua/Jesus who are in the world and not of it!
The Nazirene HomePage: The original spiritual teachings of Yeshua/Jesus as practiced by the people of The Way who where known historically as the Essenes, Ebionites, and Nazirenes. The teachings of The Way are Spiritual -- and provide a means to open the "strait gate" into the Kingdom while still physically alive in the body/vessel.
The Light Of Yeshua -- The Messianic Nazirene Disciple of TheWay: While many teach that believers are saved by faith, the journey of the disciple of Yeshua is one of absolute dedication to The Way. The disciple who becomes a brother to Yeshua must live as he lived, and become a Nazirene who is consecrated and wholly set apart as they walk the Narrow Way, enter into the Kingdom through the Strait Gate, and learn directly from the L-rd -- the One Rabbi and Teacher of the Mysteries of G-d.
TheWay of the Nazirene Rings HomePage: This is the Ring Home page of TheWay of the Nazirene. It will provide you with a listing of all the Nazirene Rings, and a brief description of the importance of walking in The Way and entering the Kingdom of God before physical death occurs. Come visit and learn the essence of the teachings of Jesus/Yeshua that were lost by the institutionalized church.
The Long Island Mystic and Nazirene Disciple of TheWay: The Organizational HomePage of The Nazirene -- the Long Island Mystic, Evangelical Minister, and Prophet of TheWay -- who God bestowed upon him the gift of the recall of his previous life as a Disciple and Brother of Messiah/Christ -- and thus has re-entered this world at the present time in order to restore the Spiritual Essence and Teachings of his Master, Yeshua/Jesus. The Kingdom is within! And we must sojourn the narrow path of TheWay, enter the "strait gate" to the Inner Spiritual Temple, while still alive in the physical body. Thus, modern Christians have misunderstood the words of Yeshua -- he never said that we must physically die to enter the Edenic Kingdom of Origination -- but rather, we must die to the culture, mindset and ways of this world in order to enter the Kingdom!
Being Of Light: Who are we? What are we? From where have we come? What is our destiny? To the demise of those who read these words, only a handful of people today can answer these all-important crucial questions correctly! The rest dwell under the cloud of unknowing -- and if you think you are the person whose reflection you see in the mirror, then you are a stranger to your true self and have made yourself part of the illusion of this world. With great wisdom Yeshua/Jesus is quoted in The Books of the Savior, also known as Pistis Sophia (Faith-Wisdom): "Do not cease seeking day or night, and do not let yourselves relax until you have found all the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Light, which will purify you and make you into Pure Light and lead you into the Kingdom of Light."
Gospel of the Nazirenes -- Gospel Of Light: What did the Gospels look like before being edited and re-written by the Church of Rome? What were the original beliefs of the first followers of Yeshua? You will be astonished when you read a surviving text of The Gospel of the Nazirenes which was hidden away from the corrupters of the Roman Church. Are you ready for a truly enlightening experience?
The Gate Of Eden: Why were the Nazirene/Ebionites vegetarian? Why did they live in accordance with the precepts of the Torah/Law? Why did they live separate and apart from both Jews and Christians? The answer is very simple: The Gate of Eden is within us, and if we fail to enter therein while we are still physically alive in the body, we will have failed in our opportunity to enter into Life. And while it can be countered that we are saved by our belief in Messiah/Christ, faith, or the blood of the lamb, the truth is that if we were truly faithful disciples of TheWay, that we would experience the opening of the inner door and the Kingdom coming within us. The GateOfEden article explores all aspects of the need to pick up one's own cross and follow the narrow path that leads to the inner gate to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.
Epistle Of Light - Epistle Of James To Pope John Paul II: 2000 years ago I lived as Jacob the brother of Jesus known as James. I was sent back to bring about the restoration of the Church, and the within letter to Pope John Paul is important for you to read and forward. The pope has the power to bring peace on earth if he releases certain early Christian documents that are in his possession. Jesus is calling out to you to help make the truth known! Will you hear the call?
Letter To President Bush: George Bush is a man of faith -- and the Lord has called him to deliver a message to another man who has the power to begin the process of restoring World Peace. Will Pres. Bush arise to the occasion? The conflict between Jew, Christian and Muslim cannot be resolved with guns and bombs. The only solution is spiritual -- and there is only one man who can at present begin the process of world-healing. Will you write to Pres. Bush and encourage him to perform the task that God has called him to do?
Institutionalized Ignorance Of Man Jesus was a Mystic, and he taught us how to walk the spiritual path of TheWay. Paul warned that it is impossible for natural man without spiritual transformation to know the Truth -- and he will look upon the Mysteries of God as "foolishness"! In vain believers read the Bible -- attend colleges and universities -- or read philosophical theories. There is only ONE Source of Knowledge that nourishes us with the Enlightening Manna from Heaven. The True Church is Spiritual, is within us, and can only be entered by the few who dedicate and surrender their lives to TheWay of Light. Everyone else embraces error - institutionalized error - in church, school and every other aspect of life.
