Gods and Men
In theology there are many belief systems, many religions, and a little study will reveal that all of them have things in common. The reason for this is that they are all based on a hidden knowledge that can empower the Self in ways that few have ever dared to imagine. This knowledge has enabled the few who have possessed it to become the most powerful rulers of this world, and they have ruled as Gods over those to who the knowledge was denied.
It is said that knowledge corrupts and that absolute knowledge corrupts absolutely, but I tell you in Truth that it is not knowledge that corrupts, it is the heart. This is why the knowledge was hidden in the scriptures in parables, metaphors, and symbols. It was meant only for those with good hearts.
The Bible is not a book containing the history of this world it is a book containing the history of the individual soul, your soul; where it has been, where it is, and where it should be going. It is a book of soul science, a book that shows the path to your Godhood.
Listen and understand:
When you see a new born baby you are seeing the incarnation of a soul into a new life journey in this world, but that life journey began before its birth. You see the birth of the physical body which is of this world, but the spiritual being that animates that physical body is neither of this world nor in it, and you cannot physically touch that spiritual being, it exists in another world, another universe in which it rules supremely, and all that is in and will be in that inner universe, are its own creations. Every new incarnation of a spiritual being is the incarnation of an infant God, and that is what Genesis 1 teaches about. Genesis 2 teaches about the creation of the Self's image.
There is 'I' and there is 'I AM'.
'God' is another word for the Self. 'I' is a reference to the Self. 'I AM' is a reference to the Self's image.
When you refer to yourself as 'I' you are referring only to the Self, and not to the Self's image.
When you refer to yourself as 'I AM' you are referring to your Self's image. It is an image of the Self that the Self has created, and the Self has the ability to create new images of itself at will.
The first image that the Self creates of itself is referred to as 'man' in scripture. In scripture the first 'man' is referred to as 'Adam'.
The rest of the Bible teaches about the creation of other images of the Self, and of the creation of the Self's spirits. There are no physical beings in the scriptures, they are all personified spirits created by the Self.
So what you have to understand is that there are two worlds, two realms, one is the physical/material realm which you interact with, and the other is the spiritual realm in which you fully exist. The scriptures speak only of the spiritual realm and the Self.
People have been conditioned to interpret the scriptures literally and to relate them only to the physical/material world. This creates a veil over the true meanings of the scriptures, and blinds them to the hidden knowledge. This is difficult to overcome and is the meaning of the prophecy; 'They shall see but not perceive, they shall hear, but not understand'.
The key to the scriptures is that they are not of this world; they concern only the kingdom within.
Whatever you have become in this world is a reflection of your image in the spiritual kingdom within.
The whole purpose of a life journey is to achieve Godhood, to become the absolute ruler of your spiritual kingdom within, to rule over your spirits rather than have them rule over you, in other words, to become your own master.
At the beginning of your life journey the only knowledge that you had was truth, and although you had very little knowledge at that time, it was enough to fill your soul with pure light. At that time also your heart was uncorrupted and your mind was undivided.
Truth destroys lies. Love destroys hate and so when you believe in only truth and Love once more, you will become innocent and perfect again. This is why it is written that 'the end is the same as the beginning.'
There is a life journey, and there is a soul journey that can experience many life journeys. A soul journey does not end until it is perfected in Love and Truth, with these come wisdom, an end to reincarnation, and an everlasting life that is unbroken.
Some say that the scriptures are written by unscientific people, but they speak of worldly science. The scriptures speak only of spiritual science, and once this is realized you are left in awe at the genius of those who wrote them. I will give you the eyes to perceive their beauty, and the ears to understand what they say.
To those who love the world I say, good luck with your next life journey, may it be more profitable to your soul than this one, and may you find the Love and Truth that those of this world has led you away from.
I have so much knowledge to share with you that it has been difficult to know where to begin, and there have been things that I longed to tell you, but you were not prepared to either understand or accept them, and so in Part 2 we will begin a new class of spiritual science. I will give you what has been hidden from you, and in a way that even the child within you can understand.
When I first read Genesis, Chapters 1 to 4, it became very apparent that if taken literally, it would require the denial of logic and reason and the acceptance of both sides of contradictions. There has been a great deal of effort by literal interpreters, to overcome and explain away the obvious faults in literal interpretations, but the truth remains that there is no strength in their conclusions, which are at best, vague and require the twisting of what is written.
Literal interpretations leave a person with only two options, accept them without question, or walk away and look somewhere else for the meaning of life. Those who see what is wrong with literal interpretations and yet stay, do so because they have been conditioned to fear punishment and the loss of reward in the afterlife. If you have been involved with an organized religion that interprets scriptures literally, you will probably have noticed how questioning of what they teach is frowned upon, and that when you do question you are met with evasive answers, such as 'God works in mysterious ways', or 'it is above our understanding'. Also if you look into your subconscious you will find the God that they planted there, one that is held in place by the thought 'what if they are right'. Would such a God fear questioning? The image they have created of God is a false one, it is an image made of a God according to their literal interpretations. However when the scriptures are interpreted spiritually they speak of another God, and it is not the God who gave birth to you and created the physical/material Universe. The God that is spoken of in scripture is you, and every other child of the God of Gods. That is a big statement and one that I intend to prove with the scriptures, which are guidance for your soul journey from infant God to transcendent God.
If anyone is thinking of what is written in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 KJV: Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. I ask you to be patient and all will be explained fully later. It should be realized here though that it would not be possible for anyone to sit in the temple of the God of Gods, showing himself that he is God. These verses relate to the evil side of the Self taking control of the Self's kingdom within. Evil cannot defeat good, hate cannot defeat love, lies cannot defeat truth. Such things are temporary against the things that are eternal.
The hidden knowledge that is contained in the Bible did not begin with those who wrote the scriptures, it has been in the world far longer, and can even be found as far back as ancient Samaria, Babylon and Egypt.
In the Zeitgeist movie, Part 1, 'The greatest story ever told', the similarities between many religions are pointed out, and Atheists have used them to discredit and ridicule any belief in a God. But their biggest mistake has been to relate all of the information to the physical/material. They are the type of person who sees and understands only the things of this world.
Here is a picture of an ancient Samarian relief from 860BCE.
Notice the Wheel of life on the altar, and in particular the four rivers and the cross pointing to the four parts. The four rivers are mentioned in Genesis 2:10-14. The four points represent the four quarters of the wheel. The Sun God, Utu Shamash sits on the throne, above his head are symbols of the Sun, Moon and Stars. There is nothing in this relief that relates to the physical/material Universe, and the people are not representations of physical beings. Everything in the relief is a representation of something spiritual.
So what do the Sun, Moon and Stars represent?
1 John 5:7 KJV reads: For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
The Sun is the symbol for the Father. Father spelt with a capital represents righteous desire. Without desire the Self would be inactive. 'The sign of the Father is movement and repose'.
The Moon is the symbol for the Word/the Truth.
The Stars are a symbol of the 7 righteous spirits/Angels, and the one who possesses their light is the Holy Ghost. It is the light that is the life.
This is why it is written 'I and the Father are one', and 'I am the way (the Father), the Truth, (the Word) and the Life.
1 John 5:7 KJV represents God, the ascended Christ Self.
It is through Love, Truth and Wisdom that we are perfected in the eyes of the God of Gods.
In Part 3 we will be looking at the greatest of all misunderstandings, the one that has been used to blind the spiritually sighted, to divert them from understanding, and to cripple them in their search for Truth. In Part 3 a door will be opened that has been closed for 2,000 years.
The Spirits Within
The biggest misunderstanding when interpreting scriptures is to think that 'men' is a reference to physical beings, when it is actually referring to personified spirits.
The definition of personify is as follows:
1. Represent (a quality or concept) by a figure in human form.
2. Attribute a personal nature or human characteristic to.
3. Represent or embody (a quality or concept) in a physical form.
We actually personify many things, for example: 'She is a fine ship' or 'Mother earth'. We even personify star patterns and planets in astrology.
Every person in scripture is a personified spirit and it is the Self that both creates its spirits and personifies them. In the kingdom within there is only the Self and what the Self has created, and not all of the Self's creations are good.
Everything that the Self creates is created for its own pleasure, in other words, according to the Self's desire, but pleasure is found in both good and evil, which can leave the Self regretting what it has created.
Where the Self has created both good spirits and evil spirits there is inner conflict, and this conflict is the cause of the Self's suffering and loss of peace.
All spiritual entities, including the Self, are invisible until the Self creates an image for each of them according to what the Self feels.
Images are translations of feelings.
Images make visible the things that are invisible.
Images are made of light.
If spiritual entities were not real then they would have no effect on the Self. To feel is to know what is real.
Spirits are real, and they affect the Self whether or not they have been given an image.
To personify a spirit is to give it the image of a person.
Images of the Self's powers are presented in animal form, and represent the Self's nature, they are in scripture described as beasts, or creatures, or simply powers.
People have been led to believe that the people mentioned in the scriptures are physical beings that have existed in this world's history, and even the places mentioned are, or were, places in this world. In doing so, they have defiled all that is good and righteous. They have taught of a God to fear, a God who not only commits atrocities, but also has commanded others to do so. They took a God of Love, Truth, compassion and forgiveness, and replaced him with a psychopathic, selfish, control freak, who is vain, needy, and deceitful. They themselves have created a God in their own image, but what they have created will be destroyed, and the Way, the Truth and the Life fill be revealed once more.
In Part 4 I will be teaching you about the powers and principalities and in doing so, I will be unlocking the secrets of the Book of Revelation, Genesis, Ezekiel, Daniel, and the Gospel of Mary. In doing so you will come to know yourself and what you struggle against. You will know why the world is the way it is, and why you are here.
Powers and Principalities
Have you ever wondered why there is so much dispute concerning the interpretation and meaning of the scriptures?
Have you ever wondered why there are so many different denominations of Christianity, each claiming that they are the true Church?
Have you ever wondered why certain scriptures were omitted from the Churches canon?
Have you ever wondered why even the Catholic Church says that the Book of Revelation is too difficult to interpret?
Have you ever wondered why there had to be a Second Testament, and now a Third?
The problems have been caused because the basic knowledge, on which all of scripture depends, has either been deliberately omitted or misunderstood.
It is time to go back to basics and begin building your understanding on solid foundations, then what is built will not fall or move when shaken.
I know that many of you are interested in the Book of Revelation, so I am going to start there. I can assure you that what I write are not opinions, but statements based on provable truths and personal experiences. There are 3 things that you need to understand first and these are:
1. God is a reference to the Self
2. Christ is a reference to the Self that has been anointed by the Spirit of Love. It is the Self's first and true image.
3. John is the personified spirit of prophecy, the spirit that baptizes with truth. The truth must always be received before the Spirit of Love.
The Book of Revelation is entirely about you and your inner kingdom, as are all of the scriptures. They are a guide to attaining Christhood and your ascension to Godhood. Once this is understood you will have the eyes to see and perceive and the ears to understand. Then you will have found the narrow path, and you will no longer be staggering along the wide path not knowing for sure where you are going.
The Self has 4 powers, and the 4th is determined by the nature of your 7 spirits. Those 7 spirits can be perfected in either good or evil. This results in the ascension to a God of light or a God of darkness.
Eternal life is only achieved by ascending as a Christ. If this is not achieved then the Self is reincarnated to begin again.
We can now begin considering the Self's 4 powers that affect the Self's quality of life and destiny, both of which were always in your hands. It is by knowing and understanding these powers that you will be able to change your life. These powers are spoken of throughout the scriptures, and although they are described in various ways, they all describe the same 4 powers.
It is not the powers that determine the Self's quality of life or destiny, rather it is how those powers are used, and they can be used for good or evil. For example, if a man has a hammer he can use it to build or destroy. It is not a weapon that kills, it is the man holding it. In other words, the Self alone is responsible for how it uses its powers.
The Self has 4 powers, and the nature of the 4th power is determined by the use of the first 3. This 4th power is the power of the Self's 7 spirits/angels; it is no less than the power of life or death.
The Self's 4 powers are spoken of in the scriptures, for example:
Ezekiel 1:5-10 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. 6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings. 7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass. 8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings. 9 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward. 10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.
Ezekiel 1:5-10 describes the 4 powers of the Christ Self. They are powers that have been used for good.
In Ezekiel the 4 powers are described as having the likeness of 4 living creatures and their faces, i.e. a man, a lion, an ox and an eagle. The words 'likeness' and 'is like' are very important words in scripture, because they describe the nature of something and not the actual form.
Man represents the Self's power to judge according to its knowledge and here that knowledge is Truth.
Lion represents the Self's power to rule its domain with complete authority, as a king. Here it is the power of the Self's righteous will.
Ox represents the power of the Self's strong heart, a heart that has no conflicting desires. It is stubborn and unchangeable. Here it is a heart full of unconditional Love.
Eagle represents the power of the conqueror and here it is good that has conquered evil. Here the two wings of the eagle represent the spirits of Love and Truth, whereas the body of the eagle represents the Holy Ghost, in other words, the eagle represents God; the fully empowered and transcended Self.
Daniel 7:3-7 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. 4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it. 5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. 6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it. 7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
In Daniel 7:3-7 we see the 4 powers of the Anti Christ. Here the 4 powers have been used for selfish and evil purposes. This happens when the Self comes to believe that it is no more than a physical being that is of the physical/material world.
The 4 powers in this scripture are referred to as beasts and they are described as being like a lion, a bear, a leopard, and a beast that was dreadful and terrible.
Lion represents the Self's power that is used to rule a domain in the physical/material world by the enforcement of unrighteous will.
represents the Self's power of the ignorance of Truth, which causes the Self to
lean only towards evil, on which its judgement is based. It has 3 ribs in its
teeth which represent the unholy trinity; the evil heart, lies and the unholy
ghost and these 3 said to the ignorant Self; 'arise and devour much flesh',
which in scripture means the Self's spiritual body.
Leopard represents the Self's power of unrighteous desire in the heart, it is a power that is used to hide the Self's true nature as a predator, and it is a power that stains the spiritual body's garment (heaven/the mind) with sin. It is a power rarely seen by others who are its prey, until it is too late.
The dreadful and terrible beast This is the power that has conquered all that is called good and right. It is the power of the 7 spirits/angels of death. When this power is completely corrupted by the evil heart (devil) there is no Love, compassion, empathy, repentance or Truth; it is the power of the fallen angels, and this is 'the abomination of desolation' spoken of by Daniel.
The Gospel of Mary
. . . it.
10) And desire said, I did not see you descending, but now I see you ascending. Why do you lie since you belong to me?
11) The soul answered and said, I saw you. You did not see me nor recognize me. I served you as a garment and you did not know me.
12) When it said this, it (the soul) went away rejoicing greatly.
13) Again it came to the third power, which is called ignorance.
14) The power questioned the soul, saying, Where are you going? In wickedness are you bound. But you are bound; do not judge!
15) And the soul said, Why do you judge me, although I have not judged?
16) I was bound, though I have not bound.
17) I was not recognized. But I have recognized that the All is being dissolved, both the earthly things and the heavenly.
18) When the soul had overcome the third power, it went upwards and saw the fourth power, which took seven forms.
19) The first form is darkness, the second desire, the third ignorance, the fourth is the excitement of death, the fifth is the kingdom of the flesh, the sixth is the foolish wisdom of flesh, the seventh is the wrathful wisdom. These are the seven powers of wrath.
20) They asked the soul, Whence do you come slayer of men, or where are you going, conqueror of space?
21) The soul answered and said, What binds me has been slain, and what turns me about has been overcome,
22) and my desire has been ended, and ignorance has died.
23) In a aeon I was released from a world, and in a Type from a type, and from the fetter of oblivion which is transient.
24) From this time on will I attain to the rest of the time, of the season, of the aeon, in silence.
In what has survived in the Gospel of Mary, Chapter 8, the 4 powers and the 7 spirits/angels are spoken of more plainly. It is no doubt the reason why it was left out of the Church canon. What Mary describes is how to overcome the influence of the 4 powers which are referred to as, darkness, desire, ignorance, and the 4th power death, which has 7 spirits of wrath.
Although information is missing from the Gospel of Mary concerning the first power, it is plain to see from the list of the 7 spirits of wrath that the first power is darkness.
The first 3 powers are within the
Self's spiritual body. The fourth power which is of the 7 spirits/angels is in
the mind. In scripture the spiritual body is likened to earth, and the mind is
referred to as heaven. It is the power of our spirits/angels that the Self through
its spiritual body inherits, whether we have made them righteous or
unrighteous; we reap what we sow.
There is good and there is evil, there is what is righteous and what is unrighteous, and like light and dark there is every shade between them. The Self's choices are always its preferences according to its heart and its judgement that is why it is written; 'you must change your heart'.
Everyone falls but we rise again when we become wise enough to choose Love and Truth. It is then that the end becomes the same as the beginning.
It can be seen that the 7 spirits of wrath are the Self's 7 original spirits/angels that had become corrupted due to the physical/material world's influence upon the Self.
The 4 powers of the Earth (spiritual body)
4. The power of life or death, received from the 7 spirits/angels in the mind/heaven. As above so below.
The 7 spirits/angels of wrath
3. Ignorance (Lack of knowledge affecting judgement)
Note these first 3 relate to the first 3 powers.
4. Excitement of death
5. Kingdom of the flesh
6. Foolish wisdom of the flesh
7. Wrathful wisdom
I have done a full interpretation of the Gospel of Mary, but that will be given another time.
The Book of Revelation
The Book of Revelation contains many references to the 4 powers and the 7 spirits/angels. The likeness of the 4 powers/beasts can be found in:
Revelation 4:7 And the first beast was like a lion,
and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and
the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
These are the images of the Christ Self's powers, and their meanings are as follows:
Lion represents the Self's power to rule its domain with complete authority, as a king. This power represents the power of the King of kings. I AM
Calf This is the power of the contented heart in which all desire has been satisfied and silenced. This is the meaning of 'repose'. THE WAY
Face of a Man This is the power of the word. THE TRUTH
Flying Eagle This is the Self's power, given by the 7 righteous angels that enables the Self to ascend into heaven/mind and rule as one who has conquered all that is not good and right. The two wings are the spirits of Love and Truth. THE LIFE
Revelation 6:1-8 the beasts are described as 4 horses.
The first is white and represents the absence of sin.
The second is red which represents desire.
The third is black which represents ignorance.
The fourth is pale which represents
The 7 spirits/angels are referred to throughout Revelation. I have fully interpreted the Book of Revelation which I will be publishing in the near future.
