The Spiritual Essence Of Islam

 

 

 

 

  

 Who Is A Muslim?

All religions become corrupted by both clergy and secular authorities under whose control the respective religions exist.   Thomas Paine portrayed this natural corrupting factor as "priest-craft" -- i.e., the term priest-craft is defined at vocabulary.com as: "a derogatory reference to priests who use their influence to control secular or political affairs."   They then provide examples of how the phrase has been historically used: "The antisacerdotal heresies were directed against the abuses in doctrine and practice which priestcraft had invented to enslave the souls of men" Lea, Henry Charles) -- "The religious instinct has been perverted, turned into wrong channels, made subservient to priestcraft and kingcraft, but its basic principle remains for ever firm" (Westbrook, Richard B) -- "Credulity, and superstition her twin sister, have in all ages been the source whence priestcraft, and quackery have derived their wealth" (J. G. Millingen).   Just how corrupt was the Church in the Middle Ages?   Martin Luther wrote in a latter to Pope Leo X on September 6th, 1520, portraying the Christianity of his day, that the church, “…once the holiest of all, has become the most licentious den of thieves, the most shameless of all brothels, the kingdom of sin, death, and hell. It is so bad that even Antichrist himself, if he should come, could think of nothing to add to its wickedness” (Quoted in: The Great Thoughts; compiled by George Seldes).

The clergy of every religion in conjunction with their political benefactors, not only corrupt the sacred texts of all religions in order to make them support their carnal interpretations, but they support their corruptions of the religions under their control by either writing their own version of history, suppressing more accurate historical accounts, and altering the existing historical accounts to make them support the corrupted religious teachings.   Thus, the modern believers throughout the world know very little about the actual history of their respective religions.  And from a Western religious perspective, the Jews, the Christians and the Muslims know virtually nothing about the true source of their own respective religions.  ”History”, writes Edward Gibbon, ”is indeed little more than the register of the crimes, follies, and misfortunes of mankind” (Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire).   Or, in the words of Prof. Elaine Pagles who correctly writes: “It is the winners who write history - their way. No wonder, then, that the viewpoint of the successful majority has dominated all traditional accounts ...It suggests that these religious debates - questions of the nature of God, ...simultaneously bear social and political implications that are crucial to the development of [each respective religion] 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” (see Pagles, The Gnostic Gospels). 

In their purest sense, all genuine religions are a path for the seeker to acquire and possess Spiritual Truth -- Essential Truths which mankind who is portrayed as the prodigal son who is presently dwelling in the Far Country, must then use in order to make the return journey to his Spiritual Source in the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.   Christianity came into existence because of the corruption of Judaism.   Islam came into existence because of the corruption of Christianity.   The Dead Sea Scrolls, the Nag Hammadi Library, and other important archeological discoveries were all given into the hands of faith-based believers in answer to their prayers for greater knowledge and understanding.   Because the adherents of all three religions have been alienated by the corruption and dogma of past religious and secular authorities, the Hand of God has moved to restore the original teachings that were corrupted by man.   But because man is the divine offspring of Creator-God -- and as such, must always possess the freewill to invoke choices as to what paths in life he will travel -- change cannot be forced upon man who like the lost prodigal son, must come to his senses and begin the Journey to his Higher Spiritual Source which he abandoned in his former state of immaturity.   Therefore, the websites and writings associated with the Ebionite Nazirene Restoration Movement has been published (see MasterIndex.Nazirene.org), in order to restore the original teachings, and reestablish the Spiritual Core of all three religions -- i.e., Judaism, Christianity and Islam.   But in accord with Natural Law, it must be man's choice to return to the Truth and reject the error of carnal men who have corrupted each of the three religions -- i.e., Judaism, Christianity and Islam.  While it is true that all three religions have been corrupted by the their own religious and secular leaders and authorities of the past, once the core teachings are restored, and the adherents of each of the respective religions understand the original teachings and the higher objectives that have been suppressed, then each of the three religions presents a common path for the seeker to acquire and possess Ultimate Spiritual Truth and Absolute Union with God.  

Since this website explores the corruption of Islam, it is important to begin on the factual premise that by definition, there are no authentic Muslims on the world's stage today.  Which statement will provoke the question: How can I make such a seemingly ignorant statement?   What we often fail to recognize is the fact that our words not only convey meaning -- but often the meaning of words is beyond man's ability to both define and redefine.    Therefore, what is important is the meaning that God gives to the word's Muslim and Islam -- and whether those who call and portray themselves as Muslim, live up to the meaning of the word that transcends the ability of man to redefine.   The word Muslim defines a Condition of Mind and Being that transcends the limitations of this world.   And if this Condition of Mind is not Present in the Life of the individual, then they are themselves judged spiritually reprobate, to even make claim to being a True Muslim.  Thus, there are sincere adherents who are in the process of striving to fulfill the meaning of the word Muslim.

What I will demonstrate throughout the below is that by definition, a True Muslim must live such a God-Centered Life, that they are able to receive and know the Will of God.   If Islam is truly a religion of Peace, then a true Muslim must draw others into that Peace.   Therefore, if they were a True Muslim, then they would know the Truth of all Truths -- and in speaking the Truth, the counterfeit Muslims would hunt them down as heretics, and silence them.   Therefore, the question being presented is whether there are any genuine Muslims in the world?

There are many who promote the need for a Reformation in Islam -- but the term Reformation is not at all the problem.   When rightly understood, what is needed is a Restoral by way of Rebirth of the Original Teachings of Islam.   And in this we can see the problem in that, in order to bring about a Restoral and Rebirth, there must be a number of True Spiritual Muslims working together to bring this Restoration about.   Therefore, the only solution to what can be portrayed as Radical Islam, is other Muslims who are willing to seek the Truth and restore the religion of Islam to its original purpose and objectives by leading others into what can be rightly portrayed as Spiritual Mecca.   Thus, the Qur'an states: "Glory to (Allah) Who did take His Servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the Farthest Mosque (Masjid al-Aqsa), whose precincts We did bless, in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who heareth and seeth (all things)" (S. 17:1).  But because the carnal Muslims fail to understand that what is presented is a Spiritual Journey within -- and the Farthest or Distant Mosque can only be entered via the journey to Spiritual Mecca -- an Inward Spiritual Journey to the Core of the believers own mind and being -- then the whole of Islam will remain carnal and spiritually defiled until a body of Genuine Muslims arise within Islam itself.   Further, because it is within the ability of all genuine Muslims to acquire the Truth of all Truths -- learning directly from the True Prophet -- all those who enlist under the banner of Islam are responsible for the evil committed in the Name of Allah.  

 

Reply To Queen Consort Of Jordan by Maria Bartiroma: In her interview with Maria Bartiroma, queen Consort stated that if you look in the Bible you will find the same acts of violence as in the Qur'an.   Queen Consort makes this statement out of ignorance.  While it is true that the Old Testament portrays similar acts of violence, the first-century Christians rejected the Old Testament -- portraying the Jews who used it as counterfeit Israel -- and the god of the Jews as a Demiurge of their own creation.  As demonstrated throughout the article An Inconvenient Truth, Judaism was an ancient Mystery Religion, and the Old Testament when rightly understood, was an allegorical portrayal of one's own mind.   Which is why the Apostle Paul labeled the written test of the scriptures the "letter that killeth", and the Church Father Origen portrayed the literal text as "worthless".   The first Christians understood the proper usage of the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge (see KeyOfKnowledge.org ) -- they used only the Gospels -- and there is absolutely nothing in the Gospels that in any manner promotes violence against one's brother or sister.    

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has correctly called for a Reformation within Islam.  But for a Reformation to be effective, it must be based upon facts, and it must originate from within Islam itself.  At the time of the Christian Reformation, it was against the laws of the Church for the scriptures to be given into the hands of the believers.  The first man to translate the Bible into English, was burnt at the stake.  But the Reformation was brought about by using scriptures to demonstrate that the Church of Rome was Pagan, and had virtually nothing in common with the Gospels.  Thus, the Reformation was brought about from within Christianity -- it was based upon more accurate Gospel texts than what was being promoted by the Roman Church -- and was supported by the spiritual experiences of Christian Mystics who totally rejected the dogmatic and very secular Church of Rome.   Therefore, unless a similar group of people who emerge from within Islam initiate a Reformation based upon more accurate and original texts of the Qur'an -- and are able to convey their own spiritual experiences with respect to making the Journey to the Distant Mosque within them that is in Spiritual Mecca that is not of this world, then no change can be brought about that would redeem Islam.

Every day Christians and others seek me out as a Spiritual Voice that is in the process of instituting a truly Spiritual Reformation and rebirth from within Christianity.   I use Gospel texts that were suppressed by the Church of Rome -- historical facts to demonstrate the fall and perversion of Roman Christianity -- and my own spiritual experiences which I assist others in bringing about within their own lives.   Which provokes the question: Where is my counterpart who supplies the facts and spiritual insights from within Islam?  For Islam to be redeemed from the hands of those in the past who corrupted both the Qur'an and the religious teachings of the prophet, the spiritual voice must arise out of Islam itself.  And until this Reformation and Purification is brought about, Islam itself must be rejected in the same manner that the Christians rejected the Paganism of Rome.

 

The ONLY solution to what is portrayed as Radical Islam, is a Spiritual Solution.   And this Spiritual Solution is Universal to all of mankind.   It is True from a religious perspective -- it is True from a philosophical perspective -- it is True from a secular perspective -- it is true from an academia-educational perspective -- and, what can rightly be portrayed, a human perspective.   And it will remain impossible to resolve the conflict and human suffering, until this Universal Spiritual Solution is Resolved.  

The suffering imposed upon innocent people by what has been portrayed as radical Islam, cannot be resolved through ideology, philosophy, diplomacy, military conflict or the empowerment of what has been termed "moderate Muslims".   Why?   So long as Islam maintains that the ONLY Source for the Word of God is the Qur'an -- and that the Qur'an is the verbatim word of Allah dictated through Mohammed -- then the solution and resolution to radical Islam will remain beyond the reach of mankind.   Further, it must be acknowledged that the Qur'an itself is the source of what is portrayed as radical Islam -- and that as stated in the Qur'an, if it is true that Allah requires True Muslims to perpetuate violence upon unbelievers and infidel -- then those who fail to fulfill the commandments of Allah, will perpetually be seen as the unbelievers and infidel who fail to fulfill the required commandments and will of Allah.   And from this Quaranic perspective, the more a believer embraces the Qur'an, those who are portrayed as moderate Muslims, will continue to be seen as part of the body of infidels who oppose the will of Allah.   Why would those portrayed as moderate Muslims be spiritual infidels?   Because there are clear requirements set forth in the Qur'an that instructs the believer to hunt down and kill the unbelievers and infidel.  

The problem confronting all those believers and adherents who call themselves Muslim, is seen in the fact that these requirements set forth instructing believers to kill and make war on the infidels, was inserted into the Qur'an by carnal religious and secular leaders of the past.   In the same way that statements to support the government were inserted into the New Testament in order to empower the ruling class of priests and secular authorities (see Interpolations To Support The Government), similar interpolations were added to the Qur'an in order to perpetuate victory over those who opposed the quasi-religious and secular authorities who promoted Islam.   But it is not enough to ignore these interpolations in the Qur'an as many moderate Muslims attempt to do today,  because it is the objective of the original teachings of Islam to seek and know the Truth of all Truths.   Therefore, to remain silent when others who portray themselves as Muslims are murdering innocent people in the name of Allah as set forth directly in the Qur'an, is apostasy against the God they claim to worship.   With respect to the Truth of all Truths, no one -- i.e., no Jew, no Christian, no Muslim, and no Atheist -- can claim not to know the Truth, with the publication of these writings associated with the Ebionite Nazirene Restoration Movement (see MasterIndex.Nazirene.org).   And the fact that it is within the innate ability for all of mankind to acquire and prove the Truth of all Truths, then all of mankind are responsible for seeking that Truth -- i.e., "If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have been guilty of sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin" (John 15:22).   With this declaration of Truth, all are responsible. 

As the divine offspring of Creator-God who was formed in His Image, mankind has the potential to Know the Truth of all Truths -- receiving this Great Body of Truth Directly from the Source of all Truth.   Moreover, in accord with the journey of the soul as set forth in the parable of the prodigal son, all of mankind originally dwelt in the Kingdom with Creator-God, before venturing into this realm which is portrayed as the Far Country (aka the Outer Darkness).   And while it is true that the vast majority of mankind who is presently dwelling in the "outer darkness" of mind and being does not remember his more distant past prior to his entrance into this world and the present life, it is his Destiny to return to the Kingdom and the Source of his Being, whenever he begins to "come to his senses" as stated in the parable of the two sons (aka prodigal son).  Therefore, the only obstacle that inhibits mankind, is the limits he imposes upon himself.  Man possesses the innate resources of mind to know all truths -- and he is not in need of other men to teach him.   And from the perspective of the core teachings of both Christianity and Islam, it is a sin to seek out any teacher other than the True Prophet.   And with respect to man's search for Truth, one of the greatest obstacles to acquiring the Truth of all Truths, is the baggage of man-made dogma instituted by pseudo-teachers and the corruptors of the faith, that inhibits him in his journey, and obstructs the path of return.   The Rule of Divine Law is this: In order to Possess the Truth, you must yourself be Possessed by the Truth, and the Truth alone.   Therefore, anyone willing to permit themselves to become an expression of Higher Truth, will Know the Truth of all Truths that breaks the shackles of spiritual bondage, and sets them free to enter the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.   From a Jewish perspective, this Return to Eden can be portrayed as the Promised Land/Spiritual Jerusalem -- from a Christian perspective, the Kingdom -- and from a Muslim perspective, the journey to Spiritual Mecca.  

Throughout the history of mankind, what can be called religion has always been the tool of charlatan priests/clergy and despotic rulers to exert and maintain control over the lives of the masses of people.   By provoking fear in the people and the threat of death and eternal damnation in hell, the priests/clergy and despotic rulers were able to maintain almost absolute control over the people.   This was true when the scriptures were originally written.   Just as it remains true even today.   From a Christian perspective, it is easily demonstrated that the scriptures contained in the Bible were corrupted (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).   Why were the scriptures corrupted?   In order to make them support the carnal and political agenda of the ruling classes.   This fact was true of Judaism, it was true of Christianity, and in like manner it is also true of Islam.   And while on the surface these three religions may appear different, at their core they are not only one and the same, but they have been imbued with the same spiritual purpose and objective.   And if a Jew, a Christian, or a Muslim can remove the man-made dogma within which their respective religions are immersed, each can equally find the Truth of all Truths that will set them free and permit them to enter into Life.

Islam came into being as a result of the corruption of Christianity.  It is easy to prove not only that the Gospels were corrupted by that segment of the Church which portrayed itself as Orthodox, but the most important spiritual teachings were either edited to support the dogma of Pagan Rome, and/or totally removed.   One of the primary differences between the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay, and the corrupted dogma of the later Church of Rome, is demonstrated in the suppression of the teachings on the True Prophet -- aka the Logos and Son of God.  And while there were many important Original Gospel teachings that were suppressed by the later Church of Rome, the teaching of the True Prophet was one of those which was re-established in the core teachings of Islam.  

In the original Gospel teachings is was said to be a sin to seek out a teacher other than the True Prophet (see True Prophet).  Jesus commanded his disciples not to be called rabbi or teacher, because there is only One Teacher (see Matt 23:8).  And if the believer is totally faithful to the Gospel teachings, then the believer will be taught the Truth directly by God -- i.e., "And they shall all be taught by God" (John 6:45).   In the original teachings, the scriptures were portrayed as the Key of Knowledge ( KeyOfKnowledge.org ) that when turned within one's own mind and being in the proper application with the Sacrament of the Wedding Garment (see Sacraments), provided the seeker/disciple access to learn and receive the Divine Manna of the Kingdom directly from the True Prophet.   And this teaching on the True Prophet was one of the core spiritual realities that prompted the Apostle Peter to write to James in the Epistle of Peter to James that if this essential New Covenant teaching is suppressed or lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error".  

When this and numerous other teachings became suppressed by the Church of Rome, this ultra-important teaching that is crucial to man's search for Truth, was revived and restored as the core essence of what came to be known as Islam.  BUT, once again the forces of corruption suppressed the teachings.   In the same way that the man Jesus was not himself the Logos and God Incarnate as the Church of Rome taught (see TheTenWords.com ) -- but was correctly portrayed in the Original Gospels as a man who fulfilled the Law and became At-One with the Logos which was portrayed as the True Prophet in the Original Teachings of TheWay -- the original teachings of Islam became very quickly corrupted with the historical man Mohamed being portrayed as the True Prophet, instead of a man who received the Divine Manna directly from the True Prophet.   

Why did both Christianity and Islam very quickly become corrupted -- corrupted in the same way?   Because organic physical man has great difficulty comprehending that the Kingdom is within him -- and he is unaware of this inner Kingdom, because he presently dwells in what is portrayed in the Gospel as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ) -- which in the parable of the prodigal son, is portrayed as the Far Country.   But what this means is that both religions are equally corrupted -- and both religions are misguiding the faithful flock of believers in the wrong direction -- i.e., looking and seeking outwardly, for what can only be found within.   And while both religions are uniquely corrupted by the same dogmatic error, the corruption of Islam and the Qur'an went one step further than did the corruption of the Gospels, in that the corruption of the Qur'an must be seen as being sacrilegious -- to such a degree, that it is a profane and blasphemous sin against God.   And anyone who is a member of Islam, or even embraces Islam without advising a member of Islam to repent from this gravest of sins against God, is themselves complacent to abject evil, and will he held accountable for not speaking the truth when confronted by this most horrendous evil and corruption of the Qur'an.     

The claim is made by the adherents of Islam that Jesus was a Muslim, as was Abraham, Moses and the Jewish Prophets as personified in the article What Does The Word Muslim Mean where is states: "The words Islam and Muslim come from the same 3 letter root word (s, l and m) in Arabic.  Islam by definition means surrender and submission only to the one true creator.  A Muslim by definition means one who surrenders and submits to the laws of God.  As almighty God is the creator of the heavens and the earth and the creation in it, nothing in the creation works at its own free will...that is it follows a law and nothing can break or change that law unless the almighty wills."   Then adding: "You can say that all the previous prophets and messengers were Muslims by definition i.e., surrendered and submitted to God - from Adam, Noah, Lut, Abraham, Ishmail, Isaac, John, Jesus and Muhammed (may peace be upon them all)".  And while this would be true, by definition it provokes the question: Are those who claim to be Muslim, submitted and surrendered to "...only to the one true creator" God?  And can they therefore be portrayed as Genuine Muslims? 

That a person makes the proclamation that they are a Muslim, does not make such a proclamation a valid claim.   The meaning of the word Muslim portrays a person who has totally submitted and surrendered to God -- not to man-made dogma about Allah who it is claimed by Islam to be the Name of God.   With respect to the Qur'an the Wikipedia states: "Muslims believe the Quran was verbally revealed by God to Muhammad through the angel Gabriel (Jibril), gradually over a period of approximately 23 years, beginning on 22 December 609 CE when Muhammad was 40, and concluding in 632, the year of his death. Muslims regard the Quran as the most important miracle of Muhammad, a proof of his prophethood, and the culmination of a series of divine messages that started with the messages revealed to Adam and ended with Muhammad."

Which then provokes the question: If the words of carnal men are inserted into the Qur'an, can the claim be made that these words -- or even the corrupted Qur'an -- is the actual words of God?  In the case of Christianity: When the later Church of Rome changed the words of the Father spoken to mankind at the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan (see TheTenWords.com ), would it then be a valid statement that the words in the corrupted Gospel text promoted by the Church were the actual words of God?   Not at all!!!   Especially in view of the fact that the words which God reportedly spoke to man were altered from their original context, in order to make the Gospel accounts support the belief in the Mithraic-Christ.   And while with good intentions the teachings of the man Mohammed were  preserved in the Qur'an, the corruption of the text and the insertion of words that did not originate either with Mohammed, or God -- words that portray God in a sacrilegious and evil manner -- is representative of a true spiritual abomination!!!  

That quasi-religious and political leaders decided to alter the original Gospels in order to portray Jesus in an entirely different manner than what was stated in the words of God spoken to mankind, did not change the higher reality that was presented in the original uncorrupted Gospels.   And it is this corruption of the very words reportedly spoken by God to mankind, that has alienated the vast majority of Christians from the Truth and TheWay.   With Islam, this grave error of corruption with respect to the true human nature of the historical man Jesus was corrected -- but, the same corruption that defiled the Gospels, very quickly defiled Islam in a similar manner that Christianity was corrupted.

Among the corruptions inserted into the Qur'an by men with a carnal and ruthless agenda, is the many statements that God requires Muslims to kill non-believers who reject Islam and the Qur'an -- as demonstrated in the quotations: "Slay them wherever you find them...Idolatry is worse than carnage...Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God's religion reigns supreme." (Surah 2:190-) "Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it." (Surah 2:216) "Seek out your enemies relentlessly." (Surah 4:103-) "...make war on the leaders of unbelief...Make war on them: God will chastise them at your hands and humble them. He will grant you victory over them..." (Surah 9:12-) "It is He who has sent forth His apostle with guidance and the true Faith [Islam] to make it triumphant over all religions, however much the idolaters [non-Muslims] may dislike it." (Surah 9:31-) "If you do not fight, He will punish you sternly, and replace you by other men." (Surah 9:37-).      

What Is The Source Of Islam: Are the foregoing words truly the words of God?  Or do they originate with man who has attempted to put them forth as the words of God?   If they are not the words of God, then not only those who follow them -- but also those who fail to denounce them -- must be understood as an abomination against God.  The religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all based upon the reality that it is within the ability of all of mankind to know the Words of God -- not through other men or out of a book -- but rather, directly from God.   Which means that if the above words which are quoted out of the Qur'an are not the words of God -- and those who carry them out do so blindly, without first seeking to prove their validity -- then that person or persons is an abomination to God.   Further, in view of the fact that it is within the ability of all of mankind to learn directly from God -- and thereby in the words of the Apostle Paul, “prove all things…” (1 Thes 5:21) -- then every religious leader who fails to oppose this abominable sin against God, is themselves part of the abomination.    Once again, it it is truly within the ability of every religious leader to “prove all things…” by learning directly from the True Prophet .   Yet, instead of proving the actual Words of God, said religious leaders take no action when the words of man are put forth as if they originated from God.   In view of the fact that it is the words of man inserted into the Qur'an that promote the death and destruction of those who oppose the corruption of the Qur'an -- then said religious leaders are themselves held accountable for the abomination and sin of those who promote the act of abomination. 

Many Christian groups have openly embraced the Muslim religion.   In view of the statements attributed to counterfeit religious leaders such as Rev. Kottler and Sojourners Magazine (see Reply To Sojourners - Rev. Jim Wallis & Rev. Jennifer Kottler - The WTC Mosque), it is itself blasphemous against both Truth and God where Rev. Kottler states: "As someone who has Muslim friends with a devout faith, I want people to understand that it is not the religion, but a perversion of that religion that fueled terrorists on 9/11."  Which provokes the question:  What is the source of the religion of Islam?   If the religion of Islam as practiced today is drawn from the teachings and requirements set forth in the Qur'an by what is believed to be the actual words of God to mankind -- and as demonstrated in the above quotations taken from the Qur'an, God is personified as requiring all Muslims to make war on those outside the religion of Islam -- then it would be a bogus lie and fraud to make the statement that the religion of Islam was hijacked or perverted by those who faithfully follow the above commandments to make war and kill those who are not members of Islam.  

If all Muslims believe that the Qur'an is the actual words of God spoken to mankind -- and that as presented in the very pages of the Qur'an, God commands the followers of Islam to convert all unbelievers by the power of the sword -- and make war and conquer those people outside Islam -- to the degree that if the believers fail to wage war, that Allah "...will punish you sternly, and replace you by other men" -- then the whole concept of Islam being hijacked by those who allegedly pervert the religion, is a hoax and bogus fraud!!  While it is true that throughout history many who have portrayed themselves as Christian have made war on others, it is also true that nowhere in the Gospels does Jesus command his followers to make war upon the unbelievers.   Which means that since Islam portrays Jesus as a Muslim -- i.e., one who has surrendered and is in submission to God -- then either Jesus did not acknowledge or receive this commandment to make war upon the unbelievers, or such a commandment was never made by God.   But even more important is the fact that if either of the three religions are truly followed, that they will learn directly from God that these words to kill the unbelievers were never part of the Original Quranic teachings. 

All Christians and Jews know Muslims of whom it can be said that they are a people of  "...a devout faith" -- and as a people of faith, would not harm anyone else.   But from the perspective of the Qur'an which is the source of Islam, these people have chosen not to obey all the commandments set forth by Allah.   These people are often portrayed as "moderate Muslims".   But do they believe and teach their children that the Qur'an is the actual words of God spoken to mankind?  And when their children who believe the Qur'an is the word of God, see the above commands for all faithful and practicing Muslims to wage war upon the unbelievers, will these children of those portrayed as moderate Muslims not carry out the very words and commandments of Allah?   It is easy for fully practicing Muslims to be strongly influenced by jihadists to wage war and terrorism against non-Muslims, by simply converting them to Muslims who practice the whole word and commandments of Allah.   Moderate Muslims are portrayed as weak and overcome by the (satanic) influences of this world.    Using the Qur'an -- thought to be the very words of God -- the jihadist can easily convince the children of moderate Muslims, that their parents were not fully practicing the word of Allah.   And since the Qur'an is the source of Islam, moderate Muslims are easily portrayed as non-practicing Muslims who themselves should be killed for the glory of Allah.

After a Church shooting in South Carolina, there was recent outrage over the flying of the Confederate battle flag -- which to many is a symbol of slavery and oppression.   Yet, the Qur'an not only encourages the taking of slaves -- which is a common practice in many Islamic countries -- but this same Qur'an promotes the beating of wives.   As the Muslim population rises in the United States, so too does honor killings and the adoption of Sharia law which is based upon a corrupted Qur'an.   And while a moderate Muslim might not put the words and commandments of Allah into practice, as the Muslim population increases, and the children of moderate Muslims read and study the Qur'an as the words of Allah that must be strictly observed, the requirement to become a Muslim who puts the whole of the Qur'an into practice, gives birth to these practices.   Can we rightly therefore oppose the Confederate flag which today is more of an historical symbol, while ignoring the Qur'an which calls for the taking of slaves, the suppression of women's rights, and the murder of non-Muslims in the present?   And as an Islamic community grows, what of Sharia law that circumvents American Constitutional Principles -- i.e., "Sharia or sharia law, is the Islamic legal system derived from the religious precepts of Islam, particularly the Quran and the Hadith. The term sharia comes from the Arabic language term sharīʿah, which means a body of moral and religious law derived from religious prophecy, as opposed to human legislation."   There is presently a number of movements attempting to bring about Sharia law in various cities across the United States.   A majority of Muslims understand that Sharia law is necessary for the practice of the Islamic religion as drawn from the Qur'an -- and it is therefore an extension of the Qur'an.   And as an extension of the Quranic teachings and requirements, the rights of women are suppressed, as is the freedom of non-Muslims.   

The above commandments to wage war upon the unbelievers, was never a part of the original teachings of Islam.   And that the commandment to wage war upon unbelievers was written into the Qur'an to make it appear to be the words of God, was done in the same vain as the corruption of the words of God spoken to mankind in the Gospels when Jesus was baptized in the Jordan (see TheTenWords.com ).   But because of the nature of the corruptions, there is a vast and important difference -- i.e., while the corruption of the words of God spoken at that baptism of Jesus has alienated Christians from the original purpose and objective of the Gospel teachings, the addition of the teachings to wage war upon the unbelievers in the Qur'an is a grave sin against God.  Which means that while the corrupted Qur'an is indeed the source of modern Islam -- with those who embrace it being the promoters of what is a repugnant abomination to the Truth -- especially in view of the fact that if a person is truly a Muslim and has totally submitted to the Will of God, then the many counterfeit statements in the Qur'an would very quickly be revealed as the flock of believers attain the ability to communicate with the True Prophet.   If the religion of Islam is drawn from the Qur'an -- and the foregoing quotations which are believed to be the actual words and commandments of God are faithfully followed -- then the terrorists cannot be portrayed as a perversion of Islam.   And if all of mankind has the innate ability to gain access to the Truth directly from an Inner Source which is portrayed as the True Prophet, Son of God, or Indwelling Logos, then all of mankind is responsible for exposing the Grave Lie of Islam.  

The Folly Of Mainstream Religion: Mankind has been duped largely by religious-oriented politicians to embrace the dogma of blind faith.   On the other hand, Genuine Religion is totally adverse to the blind faith promoted by counterfeit religious leaders.   In fact, one of the primary objectives of genuine religious leaders is to teach the body of faith-based believers that they possess the innate ability to learn directly from the True Prophet -- i.e., the Logos or Son of God -- the essence of which dwells within the core of the mind of every person who has ever walked the face of the earth (see True Prophet).    But what this ultimately means is that no person can claim to be ignorant of the Truth.   Why?   Because every man and woman who has ever walked the face of the earth, has the innate potential to tap into the Ultimate Source of Truth -- and if they were indeed in submission to God which the very word Muslim defines, then the Ultimate Truth of all Truths would be revealed to them.    And this is true even if a sincere seeker is living on an Island and has never heard or encountered any of the religions of man -- which is proven by the very original core of original Muslim teachings.  

While the vast majority of mankind dwells in various states of confusion which the Gospel portrays as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ) , those who have made the spiritual journey and travailed in TheWay, are able to emerge out of this condition of limited consciousness portrayed as the "outer darkness", and become enlightened to all essential Truths.   From the perspective of the parable of the prodigal son (see Prodigal Son), our memory of how we came to be in this world, as well as the limitations on our consciousness that causes us to be separated from God our Heavenly Father, when we reverse direction and return to our Source of Being.   In Spirit, all things are perceived and known.   Moreover, it is the Laws of Creator-God that brings about and orchestrates all events that mankind experiences in this world.   And while to the average person this may not make any sense -- i.e., that the Supreme Being would look out at the world and observe all the ignorance, suffering, turmoil and death, and take no action to rectify and alleviate the plight of man -- those who seek to know through the process of spiritual enlightenment, come to understand why on the surface it appears that while Creator-God observes, he does not intervene in the manner that most of mankind would look for Him to intervene in the affairs of man and woman who dwell upon the face of the earth.  

The vast majority of religious Jews look upon Christianity as a total corruption of the Law of Moses and the tenets of the Torah.   Yet, in spite of their assessment, what has come to be Christianity was directly orchestrated by the Hand of God acting upon the hearts and minds of man.   In like manner, the Christians look upon Islam as a total corruption of the Gospel message.   Yet, once again, to those who know the Truth, Islam came into being through the Hand of God acting upon the hearts and minds of man.   The Roman Catholic Church looks upon itself as the One True Church by virtue of what they portray as Apostolic Succession.   Yet, the Hand of God orchestrated the Reformation.   In much the same way, the Constitutional form of government that became manifest in what is now the United States, was directly brought about by the movement of the Laws and the Hand of God.   Further, the present abandonment of the Church by many previous believers, has also been the result of the Hand of God moving the hearts and minds of those who were at one time faithful believers.   And even in our present time, the hearts and minds of men are being moved by the Laws and the Hand of God.  

Under the heading of Providence in the Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary it is explained that:  “Divine government is the continued activity of God by which He directs all things to the ends He has chosen in His eternal plan… He governs insignificant things (Matt. 10:29-31), apparent accidents (Prov. 16:33), as well as man's good (Phil. 2:13) and evil deeds (Acts 14:16). God acts in accordance with the laws and principles that He has established in the world. The laws of nature are nothing more than man's description of how we perceive God at work in the world. They neither have inherent power nor do they work by themselves. Man is not free to choose and act independently from God's will and plan; he chooses and acts in accordance with them. In His sovereignty, God controls man's choices and actions (Gen. 45:5; Deut. 8:18; Prov. 21:1). God's actions, however, do not violate the reality of human choice or negate man's responsibility as a moral being” (see The Great Paradox Of Freewill vs Predestination). 

How can the biblical assertion that "...Man is not free to choose and act independently from God's will" be justified within the context that  man can only choose and act in accordance with God's Will -- and “in His sovereignty, God controls man's choices and actions” -- and even begin to answer the question as to how does this “not violate the reality of human choice or negate man's responsibility as a moral being”?   Until we begin to understand this world is as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism that returns to each soul the fruit of their own thoughts, desires, words and actions, it will remain impossible to understand the relationship of Freewill to Predestination -- and it will in like manner remain impossible to understand the reality of the lives that each of us is presently living.   When quasi-religious or philosophical authorities attempt to answer the all-important question as to: Why Is There Evil In The World?   It is man's absolute ignorance of the Laws of Creation that inhibit him from answering this question of profound importance.   And it is this same ignorance of the Laws that shackles mankind to lifetimes of extreme hardship and suffering.    When Jesus states that not even a single sparrow can fall to the earth apart from the Will of God, to ignore this statement and create carnal doctrines of belief, in an attempt to explain this statement away so it makes sense to man's very limited perception and understanding, is truly a desperate act of man's philosophical folly.    And to reject the wisdom of the scriptures, merely because in our condition of profound spiritual blindness, we lack the insight to understand what Jesus stated, represents the absolute epitome of man's ignorance.   Quoting from the subheading The Chickens Come Home To Roost on Divine Strategery: “Even as I have seen, those who plow iniquity and sow trouble reap the same” (Job 4:8 NKJ); “Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled to the full with their own fancies” (Prov 1:31 NKJ); “But you have planted wickedness, you have reaped evil, you have eaten the fruit of deception” (Hosea 10:13 NIV); “God will give to each person according to what he has done” (Rom 2:6 NIV); “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life” (Gal 6:7-8 NIV); “If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” (Rev 13:9-10 NKJ); “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man” (Gen 9:6 NIV); “His disciples asked him [Jesus], Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” (Jn 9:2 NIV).   Yet, because certain New Testament teachings were removed by the fourth century Church of Rome, modern Christians are at a total loss when they attempt to explain how the Laws work in the life of man -- and even the very reason why evil things seemingly happen to good people -- or why a benevolent God ordains the good and evil that man is incapable of understanding.

The God of the Old Testament proclaims with respect to the source of what man calls evil: "I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the LORD, do all these things.'" (Isa 45:7 NKJ).   And in his ignorance of the Laws, man condemns what he does not understand, and fails to understand the true source of what to his own demise he proclaims to be evil -- i.e., "Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?" (Amos 3:6 KJV).   Thus, there is nothing that exists in this world, that has not been orchestrated by the Laws of God -- i.e., "The LORD of hosts has sworn, saying, "Surely, as I have thought, so it shall come to pass, and as I have purposed, so it shall stand" (Isa 14:24 NKJ).   And until a man begins to understand the true source and purpose of what he calls evil, he cannot know anything of any true substance.

If, as Jesus confirms, that not even a single sparrow can fall to the earth apart from the Will of God, then the source and calamities of evil that befall mankind, are the result of the Laws that return to each person the fruit of their own previous actions.   Thus, Jesus warns the man who he previously healed by making him whole: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).   We must therefore ask: If our own actions can, and do cause "...a worse thing [to] come unto [us]", how is this tribulation brought about?  The answer is that there were Laws put into action at the very beginning of Creation which returns to each person the fruit of their own actions -- “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).

We call those who seek Knowledge and Understanding directly from God, Mystics.   The religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam were all brought about in this world, by Mystics.   The scriptures were authored by Mystics who composed their sacred writings to assist those who were willing to dedicate their lives to the pursuit of Truth and Spiritual Knowledge.   They preserved and concealed their Sacred Knowledge within the letter of the written word, in allegorical accounts that could only be perceived and understood by those who were genuine and sincere seekers of Truth and TheWay (see An Inconvenient Truth).   The scriptures portray this enlightened spiritual sight as the "eyes to see and the ears to hear" that is totally lacking in the vast majority of the people of this world who are not willing to embrace a mindset and lifestyle of dedication and desire to live the necessary Consecrated Life and transform their body-vessel into what has been portrayed as the Final Living Temple (see The Final Temple).   

When Jesus said of his disciples: “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12 NIV) -- that word translated secret, is the same word translated mystery, and makes reference to an esoteric body of knowledge that is beyond man's organic comprehension.   Yet, in a state of spiritual denial, the mainstream of all three religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) attempts to totally ignore the implications of what these words convey.    In explanation of the above words of Jesus, the Wycliffe Commentary writes that: “…the initiate was instructed in the esoteric teaching... which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...” 

If, as the Mystic and Spiritual Visionary have stated is true, and indeed "...spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual”, then at best the body of faithful believers possess nothing more than a very surface knowledge and understanding of the principles of their religious doctrines of belief.   And where the body of faith-based believers are incapable of comprehending the nature of evil -- or why Creator-God has instituted Natural Laws that orchestrate the experiences of mankind -- and why Creator-God observes the plight of man, without directly intervening in the day to day affairs of Creation -- this blindness and lack of perceptive understanding is not the case with the Mystic and Spiritual Visionary who has surrendered all in pursuit of acquiring the Sacred Knowledge that can only be received and learned directly from the Logos (Mind) of God (see True Prophet).    Without exception, whenever a Mystic or Spiritual Visionary attempts to convey to mankind what he has witnessed in his journeys into the Kingdom -- or has learned directly from the Source of all Knowledge and Light -- what said Mystic has experienced, his statements and writings have ALWAYS been corrupted by priests who portray themselves as being enlightened based upon their knowledge of these corrupted texts and scriptures -- and in many instances, it was these same priests whose hands were responsible for the corruptions which they put forth as the word of God.   This is true of Judaism.   It is true of Christianity.   And it is true of Islam.   Further, when those few who did learn Truth directly from Creator-God pointed out the corruptions -- and refused to embrace the dogma of men that is based upon these man-made corruptions -- it was these same Mystics who were hunted down as heretics.   And this is true of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.   Which raises the question with respect to what I am writing in the below: How do I know and possess the knowledge of Islam, that I will present in what I write?   One of the most important teachings that was removed and even outlawed by the Church of Rome, was the teaching on the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes (see The Religion Of Roman Emperors).    And while some might erroneously interpret this to mean the Eastern doctrine of reincarnation, there is a great difference between the belief in reincarnation and the teaching of Jesus on the pre-existent soul.    And if we pose the question as to why this is important?  Because the frame-work of the Bible is built upon the spiritual evolution of the pre-existent soul -- it will remain virtually impossible to comprehend the original Gospel teachings of TheWay, without understanding the higher reality of man's soul and spiritual natures.  

Who am I?  My own story and struggles in TheWay is presented at http://Cronshaw.us .   My higher soul-self has lived as a Jewish Mystic, an Ebionite Nazirene Mystic, a Christian Mystic, and a Muslim Mystic.   Over the countless lives my higher soul-self has lived in lifetimes as I am living at present, seeking Truth and the Kingdom has been the objective.   And it is from this foundational knowledge-base, that I present to you my own witness based upon the personal experiences of my soul spanning thousands of years in our reckoning of Time.

The Original Objective of Islam was to heal the great divide between Judaism and Christianity, and re-establish the teachings of TheWay.    Because the Torah was composed in the extreme allegory of the ancient Mystery Religion of the Hebrews that only the inner core of initiates could understand the true meaning of the scriptures, even today few Jews possess the necessary CODE to decipher and understand the true meaning of the text -- to the degree that "human opinion" is condemned and rejected (see Spiritual Diaspora).   Yet, the whole of man's dogmatic systems of belief is based upon fictional human opinion that does more to alienate the believer from the Truth and God, than to in any manner assist them.   And this fact is attested to by the Jewish Mystics who warned: "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..."  (see No Jew Has Read The Torah).    In fact, the name of this article which is entitled  No Jew Has Read The Torah, is written from the perspective that unless the Jew not only undergoes the process of spiritual transformation that opens their perceptive vision and understanding to the true meaning of the written words that lies concealed beneath the garb of allegorical text, the reader will remain totally blind to the true meaning of the Torah -- i.e., and thus,  No Jew Has Read The Torah.   Without understanding the CODE which Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge -- and without bringing about the necessary expansion of mind (see The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind) that is the result of living The Consecrated Life that transforms the seeker/disciple into what is portrayed as the Final Temple -- then the person will remain totally blind to the true meaning of the allegorical text of the Torah and other Hebrew scriptures.   

If the teachings of Jesus was intended to free the people from the extreme allegory of Judaism the Mystery religion, then the teachings of Islam was intended to free the Christians from the dogma of Pagan Rome that annexed Christianity as a political puppet, in order to restore imperial control over the people.    Yet, by virtue of secular imposed manmade corruption, both Christianity and Islam have for the most part totally failed to bring about the true spiritual freedom that should be the birthright of mankind.   From a Spiritual Perspective, both a True Christian as well as a True Muslim, would equally know the Truth of All Truths -- learning the Truth directly from the True Prophet.  

One of the primary objectives of the historical Jesus and his disciples was to openly declare the teachings of TheWay that is concealed within the allegorical garb of the Torah -- and to make known these teachings at an elementary level that every person could understand.   By design, the vast majority of Jews were not even supposed to embrace the teachings of Jesus, and neither were the Gentiles supposed to understand the Torah and law of Moses.   Thus, Peter is quoted in the Homilies of his disciple Clement: “For on this account Jesus is concealed from the Jews, who have taken Moses as their teacher, and Moses is hidden from those who have believed Jesus. For, there being one teaching by both, God accepts him who has believed either of these"  (see Things Christians Don't Tell Jews About The New Testament).    That beneath the garb of allegory there is absolutely no difference between the Old and New Testaments, is further demonstrated in the words of Peter where he declares that "Moreover, if any one has been thought worthy to recognize both as preaching one doctrine, that man has been counted rich in God, understanding both the old things as new in time, and the new things as old.”     And that the Laws (of God) inhibited the Jews from accepting Jesus, and the Gentiles from accepting Moses, is presented in the words of Peter where he states: “Neither, therefore, are the Hebrews condemned on account of their ignorance of Jesus, by reason of Him who has concealed Him, if, doing the things commanded by Moses, they do not hate Him whom they do not know. Neither are those from among the Gentiles condemned, who know not Moses on account of Him who hath concealed him, provided that these also, doing the things spoken by Jesus, do not hate Him whom they do not know."  

The original pre-Nicene Christian Church was Threefold and Spiritual -- and possessed the necessary tools to guide true seekers past the blindness of the entry level believers who were too carnal to understand the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of God (see The Secret Doctrine).   And those seekers who were truly sincere in their quest for Truth and the Kingdom, were able to seek out the original Ebionite Nazirenes who remained in possession of the esoteric knowledge of TheWay (see In The House -- Taught In Parables -- The Inner Kingdom & The Key Of Knowledge).    And the primary objective was to be accomplished in a very clear and understandable manner that would serve as a oracle for the lost prodigal sons and daughters to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.    But, in the manner of all truly spiritual movements, Christianity suffered the same fate that attacks all religions -- i.e., the degeneration of what is Spiritual and Knowing, into a semi-secular institutionalized corpse -- which is always seen in the attack and corruption of the religions spiritual core and teachings in order to use the teachings as a means to rule over and control the lives of the multitude of people.   Therefore, the most important spiritual concepts were lost, when the Roman Emperors installed a pagan-Jesus as the next incarnation of their proverbial sun-god, and edited the New Testament in order to make it support the doctrines of Pagan Rome which were forcefully imposed upon the believers (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).    From a spiritual perspective, the religion of Christianity was raped and ravished -- the spiritual core of disciples/adherents were hunted down and murdered -- and the resulting offspring of Pagan Rome, is very much an illegitimate offspring that has banished the Church from the Kingdom, and led the Congregation of believers into the abyss of spiritual ignorance and a Spiritual Diaspora.   The result was that the very foundation of manmade doctrines of belief that has become the core of Christianity, has had the effect of spiritually castrating the Church.   And while a segment of the Church remains a force of good in the world, the castrated congregations can not fulfill the objective of manifesting the Light of the world that leads the lost prodigal sons and daughters out of the abyss of dark ignorance that enslaves them.

  To Know and Possess the Truth, the Disciple must themselves be Possessed by the Truth, and the Truth Alone!!! The original intent of Islam was to restore the necessary teachings that had become corrupted and lost when the Church of Rome hunted down and murdered the genuine followers and adherents of the teachings of the historical Jesus, and bridge the great divide between Judaism and Christianity.   The word Muslim is not a title that a man can claim on his own accord -- for it indicates one who has surrendered totally to God -- dwelling in absolute submission to God's Will.   A Muslim cannot adhere to the dictates of a religious group -- or that of other men -- because the very term Muslim portrays a person who has so brought his being into abiding harmony with God, that he must be seen as a living extension of God manifest in this world.   And like the words Messiah and Christ, the word Muslim is not descriptive of a religion of this world -- but rather, a condition of body and mind that is the primary moving force in the person's life.   The requirement is embodied in the words:  There is no such thing as the Muslim religion -- i.e., while one can be a member of a religion, the religion or it's membership does not equate to the condition of mind and being that constitutes a total surrender to the Will of God.   And in like manner, this is why Jesus portrayed the Pharisees and Jews as the offspring of the Devil who were impersonating Spiritual Israel -- much like those who call themselves Muslims today are for the most part counterfeit Muslims -- i.e., Jesus said to the leaders of the Jews: "Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it" (John 8:43-44).   

A believer or adherent is not a Muslim because they say that they are.   A person cannot declare themselves to be a True Muslim.    A group or body of believers and adherents cannot claim to be a Muslim.  Why?   Because the very term Muslim depicts a condition of body, mind/soul and spirit that is beyond man's ability to declare with his words.   From a biblical perspective this reality is expressed in the words: "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'" (Matt 7:21-23 NKJ).   If the word Muslim portrays one who submits to the Will of God, then the opinion or proclamation of man is meaningless -- and whether one is truly a Muslim can only be determined by God.   In the same way, those who stated:  'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' -- considered themselves to be in subjection to the Lord.    And yet, because they self-identified in their own mind, they failed to perceive that the Lord never knew them, and they had no part in the Covenant.     

The problem that will be demonstrated in the below is seen in the fact that, while many of the early teachings of the Qur'an represent the work of a true spiritual visionary, the personification of the historical person who has come to be known as Mohammed, became corrupted -- as did the writings which came to be called the Qur'an became interpolated and corrupted by a carnal people who, like the carnal Jews, were themselves spiritually counterfeit.   The name Mohammed itself became impersonated by men with conquering political ambitions who acted in the name of Mohammed.   And like Paul (see The Relationship Of Paul And Mohammed), there came to be a number of different people who were known as Mohammed. 

The Divine Will is represented in the return of all the prodigal sons and daughters to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination which they will find the entrance to within themselves ( http://GateOfEden.com ).   And this is why, when Jesus was asked concerning when the Kingdom will come upon the earth in the manner that the Torah predicts (Luke 17:20-21), he taught that it will never come as men predict -- because it is within each of us.   That each of us is represented in the parable of the prodigal son, is the reason that the second-century Church Father Clement of Alexandria said that it is “…the greatest of all lessons to know one's self. For if one knows himself, he will know God; and knowing God, he will be made like God… and that man becomes God, since God so wills.   Once properly understood, it can be said that this world is God's Divine School House for His Offspring to mature and become Whole and Complete.  

In his treaties on The Soul and the Resurrection, St Gregory writes that “the Resurrection is no other thing than 'the re-constitution of our nature in its original form’” -- and is allegorically, the Final Stage of Birth that permits our return to the Edenic Kingdom.    St. Gregory then goes on and writes that there will come a time “…when the complete whole of our race shall have been perfected from the first man to the last”.    In the Zohar, which is a Book of Jewish Mysticism, the journey of the prodigal son is portrayed in the words: “All souls are subject to the trials of transmigration; and men do not know the designs of the Most High with regard to them… The souls must re-enter the absolute substance whence they have emerged.  But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”.   This journey which matures, evolves and perfects the prodigal son, is further presented in the words: "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.  For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it" (Isa 55:8-11 NKJ).   

The above statement by St. Gregory -- i.e., “…when the complete whole of our race shall have been perfected from the first man to the last” -- should provoke great thought in the reader who is under the misconception that our Heavenly Father would destroy or forever cut off one of his sons or daughters who are lost in this world.   If the whole of our race will one day be perfected from the first man to the last, then there are many grave misconceptions on the part of believers today.

As explained in the article on Bible Corruption ( http://BibleCorruption.com ), while the teachings of TheWay were purified and perfected in the Ebionite Nazirene native environment, these important teachings had to be made acceptable to the untrained and worldly mind of the Gentiles -- and thus, they had to be lessened (spiritually dumbed down), and made presentable to the Gentile mindset.   Why?   Because all of mankind are equally the offspring of Creator-God -- each existing in this world at greatly varying stages of spiritual maturity.   And because of the organic carnal limitations, until the process of transformation has been brought about, all are equally limited in their perception and understanding.   As explored in the subheading The Mystery Of The Gospel, Paul warned that the "natural" mind of the immature untransformed believer is incapable of understanding the true meaning of the Gospel -- and will therefore reject the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom as utter "foolishness".  And this is true regardless of what religious affiliation a person subscribes to -- it is true of Jews, true of Christians, and true of Muslims, as well as everyone who attempts to understand from the very limited human perspective -- not only the true meaning of the scriptures, but of all aspects of the life that man is living upon the face of the earth.   Further, because of their undisciplined lifestyle and heathen mindset, the vast majority of Gentiles were never able to grasp the true spiritual essence of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.    Regardless of the fact that it can be proven that the original Gospels taught that Jesus was a man who became the Messiah as his baptism in the Jordan (see The Ten Words), Christians continue to ignore the original teachings of the Gospels, and perpetuate the corruptions of Pagan Rome.    Islam was brought into existence not because a further revelation was necessary -- but rather, Islam came into existence because the Church of Rome not only rejected and changed the very words that God the Father spoke to mankind when Jesus was baptized, but immersed the Christian world in the folly of Roman Pagan idolatry that has caused them to dwell in a Spiritual Diaspora.   

In much the same way that a first grade elementary school student studying the fundamentals of basic math cannot even begin to comprehend advanced calculus, geometry and physics, neither were the Gentiles who were immersed in the pagan mindset and worship, are/were even prepared to understand the spiritual concepts and higher realities presented in the (allegorical) Gospels and New Testament scriptures -- most of which were later corrupted and/or suppressed or destroyed by the Church of Rome.   In Romans 11:24, Paul speaks of the Gentiles as branches of a "wild olive" that was in the process of being “grafted into a cultivated olive tree”.  It is important that we take note that in his words, there is no suggestion that there was a flaw in the cultivated olive tree -- which he defines as Israel.  Only that God wanted to bring this spiritual cultivation to the Gentiles in order that they would be given the opportunity to turn from their Pagan and Heathen ways, and enter into the Kingdom.  In not being a part of the cultivated spiritual foundation of Israel, they had to be a people of faith -- faith that God would look kindly upon them, and graft them into the cultivated olive tree of Israel.  

From a biblical perspective, the Apostle declares that the Gentile believers should view the Jews almost as heroes who were sacrificed for the sole benefit of the non-Jewish converts.  The Apostle clearly states that the very Hand of God gave the Jews over to a reprobate mind for the benefit of the Gentiles.  Moreover, from a biblical perspective, the modern Christian should have good reason to believe the Apostle's words, and literally “Do not be arrogant, but be afraid” (Rom 11:20 NIV).  Why?  Why would the Apostle warn the Christian converts that they should be afraid?   If all that was necessary was to call upon the name of the Lord with what has come to be known as The Sinners Prayer, and salvation was thereafter guaranteed as is promoted by the modern Church, then there would have been absolutely no reason for Paul to warn the Christians to be afraid -- lest, they will not be spared.   Yet, because the modern Church has been shackled by the spiritual folly of Martin Luther which has attempted to render the Law null and void, this is an important question for the modern believer to understand the reality that Paul is presenting.  If the believers were saved by faith apart form their actions and lifestyle, then Paul never would have warned them to "be afraid”!    And why should those who call themselves Christian be afraid?   They should be afraid because of the violation of the covenant with God when the Gentile converts ignored the warning of the Apostle: “For if God did not spare the natural Jewish branches, he will not spare you either… Otherwise, you also will be cut off” (Rom 11:21-22 NIV).    And thus, because the Gentile Church totally ignored this warning, they have by their own actions consigned themselves to the abyss of a Spiritual Diaspora -- i.e., cut off from the knowledge and reality of the Kingdom.   And it is these words that are applicable to the majority of the Christian world today: "...Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'" (Matt 7:21-23 NKJ).

In the same way that the Jews believed they were the chosen people, merely by being Jews -- and they became offended and even hostile when Jesus told them the truth -- the Christians profess they are saved, merely by believing the dogma of the institutionalized Church and calling themselves Christians -- and like the carnal Jews, they become offended when they are told the truth.   Unlike the Jews in the time of Jesus, though, the Christians believe that they are above the Laws of God -- and in the rejection of the most fundamental of biblical principles, they continually embrace the lawless idea that they do not even need to be concerned about the warnings of both Jesus and the Apostles.  In fact, in the manner in which Christians have conducted themselves since the Jews were sacrificed, and the Gospel was preached to them, Christians have ignored the most crucial warnings of the Apostle Paul as being ignorant, and have expected Jesus to repent from the spiritual concepts that he taught that are revealed in the Gospel accounts.   

In the same way that the teachings of TheWay were moved out from their highly cultivated Ebionite Nazirene foundation, and transplanted among the Romans and Greeks -- albeit in a corrupted form that their very pagan thinking and mindset would embrace -- in order to enlighten and bring the process of spiritual transformation among the prodigal sons and daughters who were lost in the quagmire of the Greek and Roman cultures, the essential teachings of TheWay had to be made acceptable to the people of this mindset.   Thus, the Christian Church as it existed over the course of the first three centuries, was absolutely necessary (see http://ebionite.com/Necessity.htm ) -- and these essential teachings had to be presented in a non-Jewish manner, in order to serve the Higher Need of all of mankind.   Over the course of the first three centuries of our Common Era, the early Church was very much as a holistic healing center which served the needs of the individual person (see The Secret Doctrine).   But in the fourth century, the most carnal of Christians who called themselves Orthodox, entered into a covenant with the Roman Emperor Constantine, and the Ebionite Nazirenes and Spiritual Christians were hunted down and murdered, because they refused to accept the religion of the Emperor (see The Death Of The Religion of Jesus).

While the organic mind of man has many great flaws and voids in its understanding, perhaps one of the greatest is that a Higher Supreme Power which people call God, would stoop to the level of ignorant man, and adopt one group of people over another.   Throughout the article TheThreeLies.com , I have demonstrated that not only are the scriptures a series of allegorical forms and symbols which portray conditions and realities of mind to the seeker, but I have also demonstrated that the scriptures are written in this allegorical language of the soul, because all of life is written in this same allegorical enigma that perpetually presents aspects and realities of mind to each individual, in order to bring about their eventual evolutionary development.    And what this means is that while all of mankind are equally the Offspring of God via the proxy of their eternal soul-selves, what is portrayed in the scriptures as a Jew, is not a Chosen People -- but rather, a condition of mind that must be overcome.   A middle rung on the proverbial Jacob's Ladder -- a rung that assists one to rise above the lower levels, but is representative of a transitional spiritual level leading upward that must be abandoned in order to achieve man's higher Gospel Objectives.   In the allegory of the scripture, death is always a movement or transition from one condition of mind, to another.    And thus, in order to bring about the Final Birth that is allegorically portrayed in the symbolism of the crucifixion and resurrection, what is allegorically portrayed in the symbolism of the Jew, had to be put to death -- or transitioned and transformed to a higher plane.    And this is not only why Jesus said that the father of the Pharisees was the Devil i.e., "Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it" (John 8:43-44 NKJ) -- but is also why the Spiritual Christians often totally rejected both the Jews, as well as the ritual observance of the Law (of Moses).   Islam in its original pure form, was another attempt to free mankind from the ignorance that enslaves him -- but like Jesus, Mohammed was even more quickly corrupted and exploited for man's greed, thirst for power, and depravity.

   

Before I can even begin to explain the Lie of Islam, I must first explain why it was necessary for Islam to come into being.  In order to understand the advent of Islam, one must first understand that the predictions of Paul had come to pass, and the Church of Rome had replaced the worship of God with that of the AntiChrist (see Church Of The AntiChrist).   Constantine had murdered most of the Ebionites and Spiritual Christians (see The Death Of The Religion Of Jesus) -- corrupted the scriptures (see Bible Corruption) -- and had instituted pagan worship in the name of Jesus (see The Christian Judas).  

With regard to the warning of Paul which the Christian world continues to ignore: “let no man beguile you in any wise: for (it will not be,) except the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, he that opposeth and exalteth himself against all that is called God or that is worshipped; so that he sitteth in the temple of God, setting himself forth as God” (2 Thes 2:3-4 ASV).  Thus, the Adam Clark Commentary writes of this passage of Paul's Epistle: “[Except there come a falling away first] We have the original word apostasia in our word apostasy; and by this term we understand a dereliction of the essential principles of religious truth, either a total abandonment of Christianity itself, or such a corruption of its doctrines as renders the whole system completely inefficient to salvation. But what this apostasy means is a question which has not yet, and perhaps never will be, answered to general satisfaction” (from the Adam Clarke Commentary).    Not to depreciate or make less the significance of any one of the individual statements presented in the above words, what the modern believer must recognized is the far-reaching totality of the statement: But what this apostasy means is a question which has not yet, and perhaps never will be, answered to general satisfaction”.

What it means is that the Church of Rome was in every way the Synagogue of Satan -- the embodiment of the Apostate to TheWay and the teachings of Yeshua/Jesus -- and this fact is demonstrated conclusively in a letter to Pope Leo X on September 6th, 1520, where Martin Luther wrote of the Christianity of his day, that the church, “…once the holiest of all, has become the most licentious den of thieves, the most shameless of all brothels, the kingdom of sin, death, and hell. It is so bad that even Antichrist himself, if he should come, could think of nothing to add to its wickedness” (Quoted in: The Great Thoughts; compiled by George Seldes).

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the words of Prof. Elaine Pagles in her book, The Gnostic Gospels: “It is the winners who write history - their way".   What does this mean?    While these words were written with respect to the distorted historical account of the Spiritual Christians who are historically known as Gnostics -- a spiritual people who were declared heretics by the Church of Rome -- the words of Prof. Pagles is just as accurate and true with respect to the founding of Islam and what is popularly believed today by Muslims and non-Muslims around the world.     Any time that secular political forces begin to take control of a religion, the result is always the corruption of that religion.   As an example: The Original disciples and followers of the historical Jesus were known as Ebionites ("the poor ones"), and Nazirenes ("the people of the Vow -- Keepers of TheWay").   When the Marcionites and segments within the Gentiles rejected the Ebionites, their position was that the Ebionite Nazirenes were too Jewish to understand the teachings of Jesus -- as the later Pagan Church of Rome maintained?   Thus, we must pose the questions: Were the Gnostics heretics?   Or, because the Spiritual Christians who were condemned as Gnostics rejected the secularized versions of religion which culminated with the absolute control of the Church by the Emperors of Rome,  was it politically expedient for the Pagan Church of Rome to portray them as heretics because they refused to embrace the religion of the Emperor?   And in like manner, the absolute folly of Christian dogma is demonstrated in the questions: Were the Ebionite Nazirenes who walked daily with the historical man Jesus -- talked with him daily -- and themselves became spiritually matured and perfected under his guidance -- really too Jewish to understand what he said?   If you are so naive and gullible to believe this dogmatic propaganda, then it can be concluded that you will believe virtually anything -- (and as the saying goes) I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.   But the true folly of the modern Church is demonstrated when it is realized that there exist six (6) separate instances where the leaders in the pre-Nicene (prior to 325AD) Gentile Church quote their Gospels and all confirm that the original words spoken at the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan by the Father was: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee"  (see http://TheTenWords.com ).   And this original statement is further confirmed in both the Book of Acts, as well as the Epistle to the Hebrews -- wherein, with regard to the passage at Hebrews 1:5, The Adam Clark Commentary writes: "This most important use of this saying has passed unnoticed by almost every Christian writer which I have seen; and yet it lies here at the foundation of all the apostle's proofs. If Jesus was not thus the Son of God, the whole Christian system is vain and baseless..."   Stating that if what Paul declares is true -- which the scriptures confirm (see http://TheTenWords.com ), then "...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless..."   Why  Because the editing and corruption of the very Words which were reportedly spoken directly by God to mankind, totally changes the very focus and spiritual objectives of the teachings of Jesus -- and by virtue of this fact, changed and redirected the original intent of the Words spoken by God to mankind.   Thus, in view of the facts presented in The Ten Words and BibleCorruption.com , any claim by the modern Church that what survives under the banner of Christianity is representative of either the teachings of Jesus, or the true religion of Christ, must be seen as a bogus fraud.   And it must further be realized that this total revisionist history which has been promoted by one of the most corrupted Churches in the history of mankind, is the folly that deceives the modern Christian world today.    And what is important for us to understand at this point, is the fact that the same human carnal folly that undermined the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay, has alienated the Muslim world from the true reality of their own respective religious teachings -- grave misconceptions that have alienated and turned the Muslim world against the very God they claim to worship.

  The Ebionite Connection Factor:  Among the modern voices of history that have emerged, author Dane Dahl has set before the reader an important part of the historical record that possesses varying degrees of truth that remains unacknowledged by the traditional accounts of the alleged life of Mohammed.   Quoting his web page promoting his book, The Pox Of Mohammed: "Author Dane Dahl has joined the ranks of those who believe the original Moslem faith began as a persecuted sect of Christianity. He also believes the first and real prophet of Islam was someone other than Mohammed—and that person was eventually erased from the Koran!  This material offers insight into the identity of the shadowy personality who has almost disappeared from history.  In so doing, this composition touches on the pivotal roles played by the extinct Ebionite Christian church in the earliest development of the Moslem faith."  

In another article entitled The Most Wanted Infidel In The World, historical and author Dane Dahl writes in a comment to the article:

Thoughts regarding the Father Botros and the WHY? of Terrorism in Islam
My name is Dane Dahl. I am an American living in Asia. I am not Moslem, but I am a writer and historian. I would like to share some information with you: information concerning Moslem terrorism. It may help you understand what is going on in the Middle East, as well as significant parts of Africa, Asia, Europe, and even the United States. This is important because Moslem terrorism has already struck the United States; I am certain it will do so again; next time you and your loved ones, as well as a vast number of other innocent victims could be caught up in the violence.
Disregarding the social and economic factors that serve as underpinnings for Islamic terrorism, I will address the more fundamental issue: the religious teachings that sanction violence against non-Moslems… And against all women! Here are seven verses from the Koran. These scriptures have been translated into modern English.
…murder, crucify, or cut off the hands and feet of non-Moslems…Chapter 5 Verse 33 – The Koran
…create terror in the hearts of non-Moslems …cut off their heads…Chapter 8 Verse 12 – The Koran
…and fight non-Moslems until Allah’s religion is the only one…Chapter 8 Verse 39 – The Koran
…of all the loot you plunder from non-Moslems, 20% belongs to Allah and to Mohammed. Chapter 8 Verse 41- The Koran (Author’s note: Loot included kidnapped female sex-slaves.) …Take as many as four wives from the women you are sexually attracted to … Chapter 4 Verse 3 – The Koran
…God has made men superior to women… Virtuous women are obedient. If a woman becomes disobedient, beat her. Chapter 4 Verse 34 – The Koran
…When it comes to marriage, Allah makes it legal for you to take as wives, women whom your right hand possesses. Chapter 33 Verse 50 – The Koran (Author’s note: This verse talks about the “loot” non-Moslems call… kidnapped female sex-slaves.)
Most people in the western world have never heard of these astonishing scriptures, but they are in the Koran … along with a relatively short list of others, just like them. This is important because not all Moslems are the same; there are two very different types. Militant Moslems view these verses as commandments from God. They think they apply to life in the Twenty-first Century and they try to use them, regardless of the suffering and mayhem they create, whereas moderate Moslems ignore such verses because they were uttered a long time ago: when the Arabian peninsula, from whence Islam came, was a very primitive place.
Historians tell us these terrorist teachings are part of a cluster of ferocious beliefs that were deliberately added to one specific part of the formerly peaceful and tolerant Koran. These changes were done years after the faith was first organized. In fact, historians also tell us Islam didn’t simply fall from the sky as a full-blown religion, but rather evolved from a persecuted sect of Jewish-Christians. The first Moslems were actually part of a larger group of Jesus’ followers called the Ebionites.
Ebionites were peace-loving disciples of Christ, who shared their wealth with fellow believers, and taught that a man should marry only one wife. In fact, women were much more independent in the Ebionite-days of Islam. They were more influential too. I say this because my research has determined that the first prophet of Islam may have been someone other than Mohammed: I believe the first prophet was a very special woman named Khadija the Pure. Khadija was Mohammed’s first and only wife for twenty-four years. She was his former employer and Khadija was fifteen years older than Mohammed. She was also an influential Arabian princess who was extremely wealthy. Even though Khadija was part of the royal family that controlled worship in the all-important Kabba Temple, with its 300+ pagan gods and goddesses, she became an Ebionite Christian.
After Khadija’s death, Islam was hijacked by a cartel of corrupt men. New beliefs were added, old beliefs were deleted or relegated to unimportance, and the religion was changed beyond recognition. In the end, Islam abandoned many of its Ebionite Jewish-Christian teachings and turned cruel and predatory; women suffered the most: they became the focus of repression, scorn, and violence.
Today, although moderate Moslems are loath to admit these facts, and many of them are terrified to voice criticism of their militant Islamic brothers, because of fear that violence will come to them and their families, the fact remains that these added teachings are not the original beliefs of Islam; they are amendments: They are the terrorist teachings of Islam.

 

What was the connection between the Ebionites and the founding of Islam?   In the same way that it is impossible for Christians to comprehend the Gospels without first understanding what can be portrayed as the Biblical Mindset, it will remain impossible for Muslims to understand the true source of their own religion, without coming to terms with the reality that groups of souls enter into life to complete what they have previously left undone.   The soul of every person reading these words has not only lived before their birth into this life, but the majority of souls have returned to this life to build upon and complete what they failed to finish in the past.   And while there are many reasons why the person you are who is reading these words doesn't  remember your soul's more distant past, in what I portray as the Divine Strategery ( http://DivineStrategery.com ) of the Design of this realm, you are not supposed to remember your soul's more distant past.   This knowledge belongs only to those who have earned the right to see and know what has not been given to the multitudes to know.  

In the same way that a group of souls incarnated into this world to create the Gospel accounts that came to be associated with the teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- and, as I have demonstrated throughout the above, all of the core disciples were themselves advanced souls who had worked as a group over the course of many previous lifetimes --  many of these same souls incarnated again in the sixth century in an attempt to restore these important teachings under what has came to be known as Islam.    For many reasons, groups of souls incarnate together -- sometimes for personal and group advancement, other times to complete a previous work, and there are instances where these same groups incarnate to restore a previous work.   As the soul who lived as Jacob who people call James, the Brother of Yeshua who they call Jesus, I was born into that life at the beginning of our Common Era to bring about change, by helping to lay the foundation of the New Covenant Community.   It was neither an accident of birth, nor an act of fate that caused me to be born into that life.   There was absolutely no chance or luck of the draw that embodied me in the position as the leader of the Jerusalem Congregation and the soul who was known as the Brother of Jesus.   Just as everyone else, I was born into that life by virtue of the past accomplishments of my soul who had been part of the group of souls who incarnated together, and had advanced themselves over the course of countless lifetimes that their souls had lived.   But because the modern Christians cling to the doctrines of a Roman Emperor and his circus prostitute wife (see http://ChristianReincarnation.org ), they possess absolutely no knowledge that would enable them to understand the journey of the soul -- and why each person inherits the fruit of their own past accomplishments -- i.e., good, bad, indifferent and complacent.  What this means is that the need for Islam was born out of the corruption and secularization of Christianity under Pagan Rome.   And while Islam today has many flaws due to the corruption that attacked the new religion, it still preserves many important teachings that are missing in Christianity.   

While all souls are equally the prodigal sons and daughters of the Most High -- and all share in this common divinity as the offspring of our Heavenly Father-God -- one of the grave misunderstandings that inhibit the necessary development of mind from the perspective of the traditional religions of man, is the fact that equal does not mean the same.    In his commentary as to why the Apostle Paul states that while God loved Jacob and hated Esau even before the twins were born, the Church Father Origen explains that: “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 mother”  (see The Early Church On Predestination).   What this means is that each and every soul that is born into this world inherits the station in life assigned to them by (the Laws of) God -- and this station which they inherit in their present life, is the direct result of their own actions and accomplishments in their previous lives -- i.e., the reality of the words: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   And that the vast majority of men don't remember their more distant past prior to being born into this life, is the direct result of what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" (see Outer Darkness) of mind and being. 

Modern-day homosexuals claim that they were born as such from birth -- and from the perspective of the above teachings that were suppressed and even outlawed by the Church (see The Ten Reasons Why Christians Reject The Teaching On The Pre-Existent Soul), this fact is confirmed by the original teachings of the Church prior to being outlawed by a Roman Emperor.    But more importantly is the fact that this same reality would be true of all the peoples of the earth -- all of whom have directly inherited the fruit of their own previous actions.    Thus, only when this fact is understood, can it be recognized that there are souls who are born into this world with a greater capacity of knowing and manifesting an evolved spirituality in their lives than the multitudes who over the course of many lifetimes have accomplished very little.   While the modern Church continues to reject the original Gospel message and the very Words spoken by Father-God to mankind, it remains true that the soul who was born as the historical Jesus, was able to totally overcome the Laws and become, first the Messiah/Christ, and then become One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God (see Logos).   Why could he overcome and prevail?   Because of all that he had accomplished in the previous lives that his soul had lived.    Moreover, the Gentiles who never met or knew the historical man Jesus, worship him as God, because they possessed no real understanding of the Laws and man's ultimate spiritual destiny as the prodigal sons who return to their Source in the Edenic Kingdom of Origination ( http://GateOfEden.com ).   Thus, the original teachings of Jesus were faithfully preserved among the Ebionites who taught that Jesus "was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity."  Hence, when those true seekers who are portrayed as Spiritual Israel and the Disciples and followers of TheWay "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs" (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34 - see http://Ebionite.com ).   And this is why Jesus taught that he was our brother -- i.e., "Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17 NIV).   And in fulfilling the Law within himself, the man Jesus 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).    And when it is recognized that the historical and biblical facts all support the position of the original Ebionite Nazirenes who were later condemned as heretics by the Pagan Church of Rome, that the reality expressed (see above) by the Adam Clark Biblical Commentary that if this is true, that "...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless..." -- one can then begin to understand why the same souls who were there at the founding of the Gospel teachings of Jesus and TheWay, were also instrimental in the creation of what came to be Islam -- for the express purpose of restoring these sacred teachings that the Church of Rome had thoroughly corrupted.    

Gaining Knowledge is not at all the result of learning from other men -- or deciphering scripture and religious texts and historical accounts -- but rather, true knowledge is gained as the result of being able to tap into an inner resource of the soul, and ultimately learning directly from the Indwelling Logos or Mind of God.    That these abilities to tap into this Inner Source of Knowledge (i.e., Gnosis), is developed over the course of a multitude of lifetimes that the soul lives in pursuit of the Light and the Truth, is the missing key to all three western religions.    Because Christians fail to understand How Jesus Became The Son Of God, they worship their brother as God, instead of embracing the pattern that Jesus authored for the prodigal sons and daughters to return to the Edenic Kingdom.     The man Jesus accomplished what he did -- even manifesting the Divine in the Perfected Flesh of the body-vessel -- because of all that his soul accomplished over the multitude of many previous lifetimes.     And unless the believer is striving to accomplish what their brother Jesus accomplished in their own lives, then they are squandering away the very opportunity that this life has to offer.    It is therefore important to understand why Jesus taught that there was only One Teacher -- i.e., the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet (see True Prophet).    And that this important teaching became corrupted under the Church of Pagan Rome, was one of the primary reasons why myself and many of the other souls who had lived as the original disciples of Jesus and TheWay, incarnated back into this world in the sixth century in an attempt to restore this teaching of The True Prophet and One Teacher that all of mankind must seek to learn from.  

From a very personal perspective, the life my soul lived in the sixth century accomplished something that I had never achieved in the past.   In the first place you will have to begin to understand that the same souls are interacting on the stage of life, over, and over, and over again.   And because the Laws of the universe must maintain balance across the spectrum of all things, good cannot exist without is corresponding opposite which man calls evil -- truth cannot exist without ignorance -- freedom cannot exist without constrainment -- and this cosmic balance has been maintained throughout every timeframe of man's past.    Therefore, in our present time when the conditions have enabled higher truth to be reborn and become manifest in the manner of the proverbial Phoenix that arises from the ashes, so too has truth's opposite become empowered and manifest.   What this means is that because of the restoral of the original Truth that has been perpetually suppressed by man's religions and cultures -- in the restoral of it's opposite, all the despots who lived throughout man's historical past, are present on the world's stage as religious and especially political leaders and philosophers in the present. 

 

^ A Question Of Nuclear Holocaust? Massive Death?   Since we are exploring the religion of Islam, from my own experiences in that lifetime in the sixth century, I can factually state that one of the primary souls who lived as Mohammed is presently in the world today as a well known political leader.   And if the Islamic world had True Muslim holy men as leaders, they would know this fact from their own spiritual experiences -- revealed to them in their journey to the Distant Mosque in Spiritual Mecca (see Journey To The Distant Mosque).   But, because the Islamic world is Muslim in name only, and their leaders have never made the required journey to Spiritual Mecca -- and, therefore, these counterfeit leaders and their followers are totally lacking in the enlightenment that is granted to a True Muslim, many in the Muslim world today would very quickly turn upon this very same soul who they elevate above all other prophets, when this soul lived as one of those who were known historically as Mohammed.    If they could gain access to this soul who lived as Mohammed in the past, they would not only kill him -- but they would then celebrate the victory of taking the life of an infidel that is presently an integral part of the western culture which they condemn as satanic.    And while it is against Sharia Law to disparage the historical Mohammed, because they dwell in profound ignorance, if given the opportunity they would themselves celebrate the martyr who could kill the same soul who lived as one of those who were portrayed as Mohammed in Islam's past.     

To the common man who possesses little understanding of the Laws that control all events and people in this world, these words mean very little: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV - see The Laws).   And in the events in the life of man, Jesus taught that even the fate of a sparrow is totally under the Will of God: "And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will” (Matt 10:29 RSV).   And, that our own actions orchestrate our future is demonstrated in the fact that to the man who Jesus made Whole, he was warned that if he again turns to doing sin, that the Laws will bring an even worse fate upon him: "sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).    Thus, all that we observe and experience on the world's stage, is the result of each man's own past which have invoked Laws, which in turn have directly orchestrated the present -- and return to us again the fruit of our own ways in the future (see The Laws).  

The average person who is generally a follower -- and independently accomplishes very little -- following their respective leaders both religious and secular, these people who have sometimes been referred to as The Great Unwashed (Can also be applied to a person who follows 'the crowd' and dosen't have a mind of their own - see The Urban Dictionary) , continue in this fashion from life to life.   Often, their attachment to a cause, a religion, a philosophy or a secular grouping, is the result of the common people clinging to a soul who was their leader from life to life throughout their past (see A Lesson In The Laws - Obama v. Bush) -- i.e., the statement of the Church Father Origen that “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis - see The Chickens Come Home To Roost).     The vast majority of people who are followers -- and often complacent to seeking truth independently of their group leaders -- are basically incapable of embracing Truth, when that Truth is not promoted by their leaders who they remain attached to.   As an example: While it can be demonstrated conclusively that the original Gospels stated that Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism in the Jordan -- and this can be verified by the witness of six pre-Nicene Church Fathers as well as more ancient copies of the scriptures (see http://TheTenWords.com ) -- it remains near impossible for the congregation of believers to embrace this Truth of the Gospel, because their leaders reject the Truth over the traditional doctrine that was forced upon the Church by the Roman Emperors who ruled over the Church.   Thus, the people remain attached to the leaders who they have followed over the course of many lifetimes, and reject the Truth.   Resulting in the fact that the very same religious and political leaders of the past -- along with the same souls who were their followers -- remain with us on the stage of life in the present.   That these souls fail to recognize that they are perpetually confronting their own past in the reflected image of those they oppose, is all part of what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).  The problem is seen in the fact that often there is a reversal of roles -- i.e., the Jewish leaders today, were the Muslim leaders in the past.   The Muslim leaders in the past, are the leaders of the Great Satan today.   The in your face Atheist activists in the present, were very much the fire and brimstone preachers of the past.   The Marxists of the past, are often the political leaders in more Democratic nations today -- and vice versa.   Carl Marx, Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, or any one of the Communist despots of the past, can and are born into a life where they are presently a leader in a democracy, or an adversary of democracy -- and perhaps even the leader of a nation or the president himself.    You become what you persecute -- or, wherever a void exists in your experiences that is in need of development.  

If, in the case of Islam, the present body of radical terrorists were in fact the victims of radical Islam in the past -- and the religious leaders of Islam in the past, are presently among the leaders of both the Jews and what they portray as the Great Satan of the western culture -- then there will be great lessons learned in the after-life when they come to terms with the reality that the present crop of radical Muslims are in fact waging war on the very souls who lived as the most esteemed of Muslim leaders in the past -- including one who lived as one of the historical people who was Mohammed himself.    But, this raises the question as to whether this Mohammed who conquered with the sword, was truly representative of doing the Will of God?   If, in the examples provided in the subheading The Chickens Come Home To Roost, where it was stated by Rabbi Yosefan that the 6 million Holocaust victims "were reincarnations of the souls of sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things that should not be done”, what if this is true with respect to the person who slayed countless people with the sword of Islam in order to force them to convert?    What if the present radical Muslims were born into their station in life, in order to confront the soul who lived as Mohammed in the past?   A man who in the name of Mohammed, promoted extreme violence and the destruction of the innocent in the Name of God?    In view of the fact that the victims of this past violence who are presently Muslim terrorists, do not possess the power to prevail in man's normal course of warfare, the question then becomes: Will they attempt to slay the Western Great Satan with the nukes that are presently being developed in countries such as Iran?   Or will they see the error of their ways, and have no part in further violence and suffering?   And will the rest of the world close their eyes to the coming of the great political storm that is being resumed on the stage of life?   As was done when Neville Chamberlain returned from Germany promoting the treaty with Hitler as "peace in our time"?    Does not both the majority of European leaders, as well as President Barack Obama, embrace the philosophy that the terrorists of the world and radical Islam can be negotiated with?    In much the same manner that Neville Chamberlain negotiated with Hitler?   Not only is the reality true with respect to the events of history as presented in the words: "He who does not remember history is condemned to repeat it" (Georges Santayana) -- but what mankind fails to realize is the fact that in many instances, it is the very same souls from the past that repeat and confront their own previous folly and error, that is again replayed on the world's stage of life -- i.e., “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV - see The Laws).

These are important questions that have been raised in the above that a wise visionary would ask with respect to the conflict that is being played out on the world's stage at present.   If one of the souls who lived as Mohammed is presently a leader in the secular left -- as well as the souls who lived as the murderers of the innocent when Marxism converted great numbers of people with the gun -- then you could very well have both great violence and conflict -- right on up to even a nuclear holocaust as presented in the Chickens Come Home To Roost -- in the making in the near future, which has been orchestrated by the Laws of Cause and Effect.   And such an extreme violence right on up to a holocaust, cannot be averted by negotiation -- except by satisfying the Laws that have brought these conditions about -- and then only by mutual forgiveness and the putting into practice of the teachings of the Sermon on the Mount.    Hitler, Stalin, Mao, as well as all the despotic leaders of the past that have made the common man victims of their violent ideologies and religions, have re-emerged on the world's stage in the present, to satisfy the conditions of the Laws invoked in the past.     

Since religion in the western world no longer possesses the power that it did, most of the priests and religious leaders of the past are in fact political leaders today.    And, unbeknown to the multitude of people, these political, religious and cultural struggles have gone on over the course of eons -- as the sides are reversed, and the confrontations of the past are continued from opposite perspectives.   The formula is, that what you are in the present, is the direct result of your own past actions (see Conditions of Birth).   What you have sown in the past, has returned to you in the present -- and will continue to return to you, until you get it right, and overcome.   In some ways, this perpetual struggle of mankind can be compared to the movie Groundhog Day -- with the exception that you are often forced by the Laws to change the sides of the equation.    In many instances, you become whatever you persecute, oppress, or oppose.    Perhaps a prime example is in the case of men such as the Rev. Fred Phelps whose church is on an anti-homosexual campaign -- which means that in the future, he will be born the homosexual that he persecutes in the present life.   In the same way that the Rev. Phelps is an anti-homosexual activist today, in the future he will find himself born as a pro-homosexual activists.   Resulting in the fact that over the course of however many lifetimes is required, the soul who is presently living the life of the Rev. Phelps, will eventually come to terms with the issue of homosexuality.   Moreover, the fact that there is a congregation of believers who all follow the Rev. Phelps, is because they are karmically tied by the Laws to this soul who is their leader -- from life, to life, to life.   

What I am writing is ultra important for the people in our present time, because the past has orchestrated the present -- and each person's future will be molded by the part they play on the present stage of life.    Why is what I have to write very important?    (1) Because the perception of both the teachings and history of Islam which I will provide in the below, will be very different than from any other source; (2) and the conflict of the past is presently being played out on the world's stage, and only those who seek the Truth and prepare themselves, will find shelter and solace from the great political storm that is brewing on the horizon.    In the same way that the Germans were born into that life as the aggressors, because they were previously victims of those souls who were born as Jews (see Failure To Remember History) -- those souls who were presently the victims of Islamic violence by the souls who were representative of the impostor Mohammed, are pursuing their past aggressors who are presently comprised as the body of those portrayed as The Great Satan.    Will the karmic wheel of violence continue?   Will the souls who are presently the aggressors see the ungodliness in their violent ways?    Will the souls who were in the past the aggressors -- souls who murdered, raped, tortured and maimed in the name of their god, recognize the error of their own past folly?      

  The Spiritual Alternative To Man's Folly: In light of the above and the foregoing, an important reality to consider is the fact that, from a spiritual perspective, there is no real difference between Judaism, Christianity or Islam -- and the conflict that has existed between the three religions, has been the result of (1) the believers own ignorance as to the spiritual essence and meaning of their own respective religions; (2) the manmade corruptions imposed directly upon the teachings of each of the three religions by their political leaders, that have made them appear different on the surface.   And the true facts to the matter of the three religions, will totally astonish the members of these respective religions, when the time comes where they will be directly confronted by the facts that many will find religiously offensive.   And whether they consider what I have written in the above and herein or not, will not in any way negate the fact that there will come a time when they will have no other choice but to confront their own ignorance with respect to the core spiritual teachings of their own religious beliefs.   If, as the Gospels originally stated that Jesus was a man who fulfilled the Law and became the Messiah/Christ, then each Christian will eventually be confronted by the reality that the beliefs which they embraced and promoted, is truly as suggested above in the Adam Clark Biblical Commentary that "...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless...".   And the folly of the Christian world will be seen in the fact that they squandered away their opportunity to seek the Truth, in order to blindly follow leaders who led them down the broad-way of self-destruction.    And the fact that the reality of Islam goes directly to the spiritual heart of both Judaism and Christianity, is simply a reality of this world that most believers are not at all prepared to even come to terms with.   But in the future, when they are no longer immersed in the ignorance of this world, they will have no other choice than to confront and come to terms with the reality that they blindly judged as heresy while in this life.

From a Christian perspective, Islam is a false religion that is diabolical and rejects God.   So, for them to even consider the suggestion that it was the same group of souls who embodied the original Jerusalem Congregation as the very spiritual essence of their own core religious teachings -- and that these same souls laid the spiritual bedrock of what has come to be known as Christianity today -- were also instrumental in the creation of Islam.   The vast majority of Christians would would immediately reject such a statement as insanity.    To most Christians, God's Name is Jesus who they portray as part of the Triune God.    And since the Muslims believe that Jesus was just a man who was a prophet of God, then the idea that the same souls who formed the original Jerusalem Congregation in the first century, was also the same group of souls who were responsible for the creation of Islam, would simply be incomprehensible to the modern Christian believer.    But the reality that most Christians have yet to come to terms with, is the fact that their core doctrines of belief have very little in common with the original teachings and beliefs of the original disciples and followers of Jesus.  

In a recent Today's Christian Woman interview with Lisa Ann Cockrel, Brian McLaren was quoted as stating: "One of the problems is that the average Christian in the average church who listens to the average Christian broadcasting has such an oversimplified understanding of both the Bible and of church history - it would be deeply disturbing for them to really learn about church history" (see Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right).    And if the truth about the foundlings of the religions of Christianity and Islam was to be presented to the multitude of believers of both religions, these same believers would be appalled and in shock over the facts.    And while the Christian world has generally hid their heads in the sand with respect to the implications of modern archeological findings and discoveries, 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 makes all the difference in the world!   If Jesus learned and was groomed by a mystical sect of Jewish Gnostics known as Essenes -- and he was a man approved by God, rather that the personification of God -- i.e., as stated by Peter: "Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know--Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death" (Acts 2:22-23 NKJ) -- represents one of the many verses of scripture which portrays Jesus as a man who was approved by God -- through whom God performed works and miracles as signs to the people -- then the worship of this man as God is pure idolatry.   

When Prof. John Allegro was quoted as saying that what has been revealed in the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls is a great amount of overwhelming evidence that “...may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church.   This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers.   The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine” (August 1966 issue of Harpers Magazine) -- what he was in fact stating is that, everything that we now know about Christian beginnings demonstrate that the Essene/Ebionites were not the heretics which they were falsely portrayed by the later Gentile church -- but were in fact, the body of genuine believers that held fast to the authentic and original Gospel teachings of the New Covenant.    And if this witness of the historian and biblical scholars is indeed the factual truth, then what is the fate of the congregation of modern believers who blindly follow the dogma of the Church of Pagan Rome?   Will those souls who were complacent to seeking and uncovering the Truth that Jesus taught could be discovered by those who were willing to follow in his footsteps and pick up their own cross and travail in TheWay, be welcomed as having been faithful, when they blindly followed the dogma of the Pagan Church of Rome?    

In one of the latest assaults upon the Church with the sword of historical facts (The Jesus Papers : Exposing the Greatest Cover-Up in History), author Michael Baigent poses the question: "What if everything you think you know about Jesus is wrong?"    And the basis of his book is in the description: "As a religious historian and a leading expert in the field of arcane knowledge, Baigent has unequaled access to hidden archives, secret societies, Masonic records, and the private collections of antiquities traders and their moneyed clients."    But perhaps even more revealing is presented in one of the author's previous books entitled The Dead Sea Scroll Deception, where a Publishers Review states of the book: "For the lay reader, this crystalline, well-documented work offers substantive evidence that for more than 40 years a small coterie of Catholic scholars established a stranglehold on access to the Dead Sea Scrolls, which were discovered in the Qumran caves east of Jerusalem in 1947. Baigent and Leigh ( Holy Blood, Holy Grail ) claim that the elite group had direct links to official Vatican propaganda offices, that at least two among them were outspoken anti-Semites, and that they suppressed material that connects early Christianity to the Qumran community as well as to the zealous defenders of the fortress of Masada. Drawing on the findings of independent Dead Sea Scrolls scholar Robert Eisenman of California State University, the authors advance startling theories that should change the way we view ancient Judaism and nascent Christianity..."

In truth, the original New Covenant Gospel Church and Community had very little in common with modern Church Doctrine that was forced upon Christianity by the Emperors of Pagan Rome -- and the average Christian who knows little more than what his pastor tells him, is simply not prepared to even come to terms with the original Gospel New Covenant teachings.   So, it would then be equally acknowledged that neither would this same body of Christian believers even be prepared to come to terms with the reality that these same members of the original Jerusalem Church were also the founding source of what has come to be known as Islam.   And that the only real difference between the two religions, is the product of the manmade deviations that spiritually disenfranchised leaders within each of the respective religions -- introduced into each religion, for largely politically expedient reasons.    And that neither Christianity or Islam today, represents the original core foundational objectives and beliefs, is a reality that neither Christian nor Muslim is even remotely prepared to come to terms with.

Jesus portrayed the response of the people to the Truth when he warned his disciples and followers: "These things I have spoken to you, that you may be kept from stumbling.  They will make you outcasts from the [synagogues, churches and mosques] but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God" (John 16:1-2 NAS).   And what is not realized is that the above words are true across the spectrum of the three religions, because all three religions have the same foundational flaw that alienates them from the core objectives that their own religions were intended to bring about in the life of the believers.   And basically, the common flaw is the result of the fact that, because the organic mind of man is limited to the three dimensions of this earth-plane -- and the community of believers who have been spiritually disenfranchised by the dogma of their respective religious leaders, all dwell either in The Prison or Outer Darkness that Jesus warned causes spiritual blindness and inhibits the person's ability to understand what they see and hear -- the community of believers are simply incapable of comprehending the teachings of their own religion with the required depth, to understand the symbolism that has been presented to them in their own respective religious texts.    And in their blindness, the Christians proclaim that the man Jesus is God -- while the Muslims proclaim that the man Mohammed is the Prophet -- when it is the indwelling True Prophet/Logos/Son of God that is being presented in the teachings of both respective religions.   And because all three religions are stricken with the inherent blindness of those lost prodigal sons and daughters who dwell in the "outer darkness" of mind and being, they remain totally alienated from the Kingdom within that they gravely look for to come upon the earth.    And thus, when a mystic visionary arises who attempts to tell them the truth, they turn upon him -- fulfilling the reality that "...everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God".

 

 

 

 

  The Founding Of Islam From A Personal Perspective: From a personal perspective, the founding of Islam was in one way a departure from my own previous past lives.   While I had achieved the next stage of soul-birth in my life as Jacob in the first century -- and again as an Ebionite Elder named Matthew in the fourth century -- the life I lived in the sixth century was very different than the others.   And I am sharing the manner in which I was able to escape the "outer darkness" of this world, because it is totally relevant to all of mankind's quest to escape the cloak of ignorance that keeps them shackled to the illusions of what is portrayed in the analogy of Plato's Cave.    Thus, I write about my own personal experiences because every person who has ever walked the face of the earth is capable of doing the same that I did and accomplishes.   And while it is true that the promise in the the Book of Revelations to those who overcome is that they will not go out of the Kingdom any more -- i.e., "He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more" (see The Walking Dead - Rev 3:12 NKJ) -- if the Book of Revelation had not been edited by the Church (see http://BibleCorruption.com ), it would better reflect the original teaching which is preserved in the Gospel of the Nazirenes in the words: "...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."    Often, advanced souls who have brought about the various stages of birth in previous lives that enable them to enter into Life in the Kingdom, re-enter this world as guides and shepherds to their brothers and sisters.  

The spiritual advances I had personally made in the previous lives my soul had lived, was always the result of being a part of an established spiritual group.   The soul who lived as the historical Jesus was born among the Essenes, because he had spent many lifetimes as an Essene.   Thus, the historical Jesus was born into a group -- along with other souls who were his disciples -- and this group was part of the spiritual environment that enabled him to accomplish all that he did.   And in the same way, I had myself been born many times among the Essenes, as well as the Ebionites and other such groups, which provided the necessary spiritual environment for myself and others to accomplish the spiritual goals and objectives of each particular life.    Yet, this life in the sixth century was different -- and what immediately stood out in the life I lived was seen in the fact that there was no established group such as the Essenes or Ebionites -- only the soul who had been incarnating as my wife over the course of almost countless lifetimes -- and the group of souls who had been with us who formed the original Jerusalem Community.   In our previous life together as Ebionites, my wife and I were able to achieve the next stage of soul-birth together.   As detailed in the article The Divine Marriage, what has been accomplished in the past by husband and wife soul-seekers, can much more easily be restored to the union in any subsequent lifetime when a Divine Marriage is itself restored.   While the Laws return to each person the fruit of their own past -- i.e., "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7 NKJ) -- this reality of husband and wife that is not at all understood today, can be seen in the words of Paul: "Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For 'the two,' He says, 'shall become one flesh.'   ...Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body" (1 Cor 6:16-18 NKJ).   As stated in the subheading Sexual Immorality - Why Is It Condemned In The Scriptures, this connection to all sexual partners remains throughout a person's life -- often to the detriment of the person (see Lilith).   

Those religious paths that embrace and follow a monastic mindset and lifestyle, generally reject marriage and abstain from sex, because of the connection between people that it creates.   The success of the monk depends upon their ability to suppress the lower natures -- which means that all sexual interaction, and even thoughts, must be negated and suppressed.   The path of the Hebrew Mystic, on the other hand, is a purely Gnostic way -- and therefore strives to invoke and bring about the most optimum conditions to achieve the necessary Wholeness and balanced development of the person.   In this path that is not at all understood today, having a wife or husband who are themselves dedicated soul-seekers is a great advantage -- while the connection to others outside the marriage can be a detriment to even the validity of the marriage itself.  

That these negative connections in the Etheric Fields of the people involved in the union, often result in the bombardment of negative thoughts, is a reality that was known and understood by the Mystic authors of the Torah and Gospels.   Further, the disruptions caused by these connections in the Etheric Field of the individual, are often the cause of physical disease and maladies, because these negative connections not only interfere with the flow of vital life-force, but drain the person of necessary energy needed to bring about the expansion of the mind, through connections to others.     In the case of the Woman at the Well who could not receive the Living Waters due to the fact that she did not have a husband (see Woman At The Well), her connection to five other men was easily seen and detected by Jesus, because the connections were observed in her Etheric Field/Mind.   Moreover, because she was anchored to five men -- and could not therefore even have a husband -- her lifestyle and mindset inhibited her from receiving the Living Waters of the Spirit (see  Lilith, The Demonic Reality Of The Modern Feminist Movement ).   And it was for this very reason with respect to connections in the Etheric Field/Mind that anchored people to this world, that Jesus condemned even looking on another person who was not your spouse with lust -- i.e., "You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not commit adultery.' But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Matt 5:27-28 NKJ - see Divine Pattern).   Did Jesus pronounce in the Gospels that it's OK to embrace the culture of this world -- to pursue the life of a whore, or in the case of men, to be a whoremonger?   No, in fact he stated to the woman at the well that she could not receive the Living Waters, because of her (Etheric) connections to five other men who inhibited her from even having a husband.  

Sexual purity between husband and wife, on the other hand, can bestow upon the couple all the blessings and advantages of the Laws, without any negative detriments whatsoever.    In the same way that a sperm and ovum are paired opposites that have been Created for the express purpose of bringing about birth and life, so too does man and woman remain within this Divine Pattern (see Cosmic Ovum And Sperm).   The Laws of Creator-God have insured that, within the environment of the Divine Marriage is all the elements of mind and being on a physical, mental/soul and spiritual level, to bring about ultimate spiritual blessings and success.   And from a personal perspective, it was this Higher Ordained Reality that had come together in that life in the sixth century that brought about the success of the initial restoral of the teachings of TheWay that my wife and I entered into that life as an objective to accomplish.   And because both of us had achieved the next stage of soul-birth together -- as husband and wife, in our previous life as Ebionites -- the Laws could more easily be invoked that would restore the level of spirituality reached in our past.   

One of the primary reasons that our witness to the above is of the utmost importance today, is seen in the fact that the spiritual role of women -- and especially that of a True Wife -- was removed from the original teachings of the Qur'an.   Quoting the web article upon which the Dane Dahl Book The Pox Of Mohammed is presented where it is written: A’isha the favorite wife of the prophet, (who was still living when this act of religious sedition took place) says…according to a (Moslem) tradition recounted in al-Suynti, "… During the time of the prophet, the chapter of the Parties (now identified as chapter 33 – The Clans, which is actually the 103rd chapter in correct chronological order in the Koran) used to be two hundred verses (long)…When Uthman edited the Koran, only the current verses (73 of them) were recorded." (Note: the parenthetical remarks were added by historian Dane Dahl in an effort to clarify the text.)  Moslem tradition admits Caliph Uthman erased an astonishing 127 verses from this one single chapter. Today, thirteen centuries later, only God knows how many other verses and even entire chapters have been altered, rewritten or entirely erased from the Moslem bible, by this corrupt man and his band of friends and greedy, blood relatives.

Thus, while attempting to totally subjugate women, instead of permitting them to arise to their intended spiritual stature, the most important teachings on both the Laws, and a wife's place in manifesting the fulfillment of the Laws within a Divine Marriage, was removed.    Of the original feminine spiritual role within the marriage, and the removal of these ultra-important teachings in the Qur'an, Dane Dahl writes of the above noted Caliph Uthman:

Even Moslem tradition admits the Koran has been massively erased and revised. During this lengthy process the current version of the Koran lost its purity and much of its original message, but the author believes this was not always the case.   A key episode in this long-standing religious sedition (but not the first episode) took place approximately twenty years after Mohammed's death. It involved Caliph Uthman, the third successor to Mohammed. Uthman was assisted in his efforts by a cartel of corrupt friends and family members. He appointed these men to high office throughout the burgeoning Islamic empire. (see http://www.search.com/reference/Banu_Tamim )   Because of the important role Khadija the Pure played in founding the original religion of Islam, when women were first reviled and subjugated in the city of Medina, full scale civil war broke out more than once in early Moslem history. This strife almost destroyed the infant Arabian Desert religion called Islam. The first major rebellion involved another female prophetess named Sajah. Shortly after Mohammed died, Sajah the Prophetess emerged from the largest Arabian Desert tribe called the Banu Tamim.   Sajah the Prophetess challenged the corrupt all-male leadership who had seized control of the Moslem faith. After savage fighting, this brave woman and her devoted followers were ultimately defeated. Sajah went into hiding and her loyal supporters were killed. However, vast numbers of Arabs continued to hold secret views that were sympathetic to Prophetess Sajah; given the fact that the woman was still alive, Caliph Uthman and his political allies viewed her as a very real threat.   To fortify their position, these Arab rulers compiled a new official written version of the Koran, which up to that time, had been largely memorized and recited in oral tradition during ritual prayers. By that time most of the men who originally memorized the oral Koran from the mouth of the prophet were dead. Their passing created a crisis of leadership because varying interpretations of the Koran were emerging throughout parts of the Moslem empire. These competing versions of Islam threatened to split the faith into warring factions.   Compounding the problems Uthman faced, was the fact that illiteracy was rampant at the time of Mohammed; only a handful of precious Koranic manuscripts had been written down by the original companions of the prophet. These hand-written manuscripts existed in fragmentary pieces that were incomplete and often disagreed wth each other.  Under the guise of remedying these textual conflicts, Uthman and the men he allied himself with—massively rewrote the Koran. In the process, they deleted or changed everything that threatened their right to rule the Empire of Mohammed.  

So long at the Muslim world continues to subjugate women and perceive them as property -- often using them as mere sex slaves -- the men of the Islamic world will themselves be barred from making any real and genuine spiritual advances.   If, as presented in articles such as The Divine Marriage, the reality of man and woman which is detailed and explored in the foregoing subheadings beginning with man as The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm, then the corruption of these essential verses of the Qur'an and the removal of the original Islamic teachings on the role of women and a wife, is representative of the absolute spiritual castration of Muslim men in their search for Spiritual Mecca and The True Prophet.    If as presented in these articles, that man and woman possess a higher spiritual purpose and reality that is virtually impossible to bring about in their divided roles as man and woman -- in contradistinction to husband/wife who have achieved the higher state of Oneness as presented in the words of Jesus as preserved in the Second Epistle of Clement on the Coming of the Kingdom -- i.e., “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’” -- and this reality portrayed in the words "...and the male with the female, neither male nor female’” -- has to do with the balanced equation of husband/wife as portrayed in the Spiritual Union of the sperm and ovum in the foundation of the Living Embryo -- then the crimes against women that has been perpetrated by the Muslim world, has in fact been responsible for their own diabolical undoing.   @@@HERE 8/18

Why is this important and relevant to the modern believer -- both Christian and Muslim?   Because if the reader comes to understand the Laws and seeks the Knowledge thereof, this Knowledge becomes the most expedient means for them to prove the Truth by virtue of their own spiritual experiences.   If you reject what I am writing because it does not appear to substantiate your own religious beliefs -- and your religious beliefs are flawed because of the organic human condition that limits your understanding -- then you have slammed the door to the very catalyst you need to prove the truth in your own life.     

Years ago when my wife and I first looked into that life together in the sixth century, we had no idea that what we were seeing was the very spiritual core of the emergence of what would come to be the religion of Islam.   Initially, the life we lived on an island represented the success of our union -- a success that we would repeat many times throughout the Middle Ages in the formation of countless Spiritual Communities that existed in defiance of the Church.   In the beginning when we began to research each of our lives together, there seemed to be much more to learn from the lives my soul lived as Jacob in the first century, Matthew in the fourth century -- and even pre-Common Era lives as Essenes and other religious groups which we were members of together.   But as a greater awareness of all my own lifetimes began to emerge, the one in the sixth century began to loom in importance with respect to the struggles of mankind in our modern day.      

From a personal perspective, this life in the sixth century was the first life where we achieved this spiritual restoral within ourselves, without the aid of being born into a spiritual community.   And thus, we were not only able to prove the the relationship of the Laws and the teachings of TheWay -- but perhaps even more important was the fact that we were able to prove the concepts set forth in the above subheading entitled The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm.    And then we took the teachings of TheWay even one step further, and we proved the spiritual concepts set forth in the above subheading Deists And The First Amendment.    By invoking the Laws that are an integral part of the very Spiritual DNA of man and woman, we were able to bring about transformation by virtue of the Indigenous Laws of Creation itself -- i.e., The Laws of Nature, and Nature's God.    And then by molding a spiritual community that permitted the spheres of mind to develop -- an environment which would later be embodied in the American Constitution by the Deists and Masons -- we were able to prove that the Laws when not obstructed by man's pseudo-churches and pseudo-governments, would bring higher spiritual success and achievement to the Whole of the Community.   Which was why the creation of Spiritual Communities was one of the first and primary objectives of the Book of Acts.  

In that life I was the person known as the teacher -- we lived on an island -- and we developed the core concepts which in time became incorporated into the Qur'an.   Therefore, while we existed as a group, I very much lived as the person who Dane Dahl portrays as "...the first and real prophet of Islam was someone other than Mohammed—and that person was eventually erased from the Koran!    ...the shadowy personality who has almost disappeared from history".   In addition to myself and my wife, a whole group of core people were erased from what came to be the Qur'an.   Further, one of the souls who the tradition of Mohammed came to be derived from, was a later member of that spiritual community on the island.   

It would be very difficult to say who the historical Mohammed was, because the personification of Mohammed was embodied by a number of people who lived in that timeframe.     One of these men who came to be associated with the historical person Mohammed, was a religious leader who was politically motivated.   He saw these teachings as an opportunity to bring about uniformity and peace among the people -- even though the peace was eventually the result of the sword.   Where myself and others who were the core spiritual sources of Islam remained on the island, this other person became a leader of the people on the mainland.  

 

 

 

 

The Real Islam: Author and historian Dane Dahl very much thinks with the mindset and intellect of the traditional historian and scholar where he writes in the above: "...the original Moslem faith began as a persecuted sect of Christianity.  He also believes the first and real prophet of Islam was someone other than Mohammed—and that person was eventually erased from the Koran!  This material offers insight into the identity of the shadowy personality who has almost disappeared from history.  In so doing, this composition touches on the pivotal roles played by the extinct Ebionite Christian church in the earliest development of the Moslem faith."   While there are degrees of truth to what Dane Dahl writes, the very fact that he is a historian -- and he seeks answers via the historical record from a very linear perspective -- is representative of the great looming obstacle that confronts and severely limits all historians.  Moreover, it is this same limitation that inhibits all attempts to understand and evaluate core religious teachings from a linear and intellectual perspective.    Why?   Because while the historian attempts to track religious teachings in a linear manner, in order to set forth an intellectual solution that can assist other intellectuals to grasp the source of the teachings, without the infusion of the intuitive powers of mind -- and the necessary balance between linear logic and reasoning with intuitive inner perception -- the answers and solution that historians seek will remain an enigma forever beyond their grasp, because no linear perspective exists which they can follow and track within their three-dimensional framework of mind and thinking.  

It is a truly difficult thing for the linear intellectual to imagine that their own mind exists within a matrix -- and that like an iceberg, not only is the part of the mind that they are utilizing very much like a small tip that protrudes above the ocean of consciousness we call the self -- but that there exists a multitude of other small tips that in like manner protrude into this world at various timeframes throughout the long history of mankind upon the face of the earth.   Moreover, at the core of this mental-matrix exists their true self -- i.e., the higher reality of their souls that they know absolutely nothing about -- that is the accumulation of all that they have been and experienced since the very dawn of time itself.   Therefore, from a purely linear perspective, this framework which exists within the matrix of mind that lies beneath the ocean of consciousness of every individual person, does not make any sense to the whole foundational structure of their reasoning.   And thus, the words of the Apostle Paul become an inescapable reality when he warned that the organic ("natural") mind of man will reject the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery).      If the true self is as the core and essence of the great volume of ice that lies beneath the surface of the ocean -- and the mind of man is not only a small protruding point that is observed from the perspective of this world -- but that across the dimension of what we portray as Time (see Soul-Symphony - Time - Soul-Octaves - Spiritual Cathedral), there exists a multitude of points that are very much as small protruding points that are manifest throughout different periods in the history of the earth -- and each earthly point that is connected through the Matrix of the mind of the soul unknowingly exists beneath the surface of the ocean of consciousness -- to be ignorant of this higher soul-reality, is to be totally disenfranchised from our true self.   Moreover, the higher soul-self which lies beneath the surface of the ocean of consciousness is aware of all the points which the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 portrays as (embryonic) images of the soul projected into this world (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image).    What this means is that the linear-intellectual who has limited his vision and knowledge of self to the three dimensions of this world, simply has no means to even begin to understand the self that the ancients envisioned when they stated the objective to: Know Thyself. @@@ 8/22

In order to even begin to understand this higher matrix reality of the soul, it is important to pose the question: What part of "foolishness" will satisfy the very limited linear reasoning of the organic human mind?    What Paul is attempting to warn the congregation of Christians that he personally taught what he called the "testimony" of Christ which he portrayed as "milk" for babes (see Mystery), is that the linear thinking which he called the "wisdom of this world" will perpetually come to naught, because man is generally incapable of envisioning the depth of the soul-matrix from an organic linear perspective.    Yet, with the development of the mind beyond organic limits, and the proper application of what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge, the reality presented in the Gospel of Thomas can become manifest -- i.e., (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest."   Thus, the primary objective is to begin to recognize what is in our sight as we gaze into the outer world,

And while man has the innate potential to greatly expand his organic mind to the degree that he can consciously begin to tap into his inner source of soul-being, few men are willing to dedicate themselves to accomplishing this higher spiritual goal.     From the historian's linear perspective, this inner soul-matrix of mind and being does not exist, because it lies beyond his linear vision and comprehension.    And if a mystic who has opened the inner "narrow strait gate" attempts to convey to the person of linear vision the existence of the soul-matrix that exists within every individual person, the witness of the mystic is immediately rejected as the imaginations of an idiot or fool -- or in the example of the analogy of Plato's Cave, the ravings of a madman.      

@@@ 8/19 the spiritual reality and facts are simply beyond the thinking of the intellectual scholars.    What would appear to be a connection to the Ebionites, was more factually the result of the soul-journey that my wife and I, as well as others who had incarnated into that life with us, had walked in previous lifetimes.   We began with no scriptures that could be associated with either Judaism or Christianity.   In the beginning, there was no established religious community or group.    There was only our own past spiritual accomplishments, and the reality of the Indigenous Laws of Creation which we invoked within the Spiritual Covenant of a Divine Marriage.    In fact, it was this Law that is an integral part of our Spiritual DNA, that Paul was making reference to in the words: "...for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified; for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in their hearts" (Rom 2:13-15 NKJ).    And that this Law is not only written in the hearts of all of mankind -- but is also observed throughout all of Creation itself -- is why Paul warned that everyone is equally accountable to the Law of God -- i.e., "...because that which is known about God ...for God made it evident to them.  For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse" (Rom 1:19-20 NAS).    Or, in the words: For the truth about God is known to them instinctively; God has put this knowledge in their hearts” (Rom 1:19 TLB).   And this higher esoteric knowledge can be drawn upon when one comes to understand the principles of Creation as presented throughout the above, and at the subheading entitled The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm.    And that it is all about the stages of birth, is why the historical Jesus is portrayed as the first of many prodigal sons to have achieved the necessary birth in the Omega -- i.e., and this is why Jesus is referred to by Paul as “the first-born among many brethren” (Rom 8:29).   Thus, the long ignored statement by Paul which is seen in the words: "For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now" (Rom 8:19-22 NKJ).   Take especial notice of the words:  "...For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it  ...For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now".

To the scholar who does not understand this higher spiritual reality that is totally lacking in the concepts they have been exposed to in man's educational systems, it would appear to a man such as Dane Dahl that Islam began as an Ebionite sect who had been banished by the Church of Rome as heretics.   He could not imagine that a group of souls who had formally lived as Ebionites, re-entered into this world together, in order to restore the Truth that the Church had corrupted.   The Ebionites held that the historical Jesus was a man, and not the god that the Church of Rome had dogmatically created.    Moreover, these teachings which came to be the basis of Islam, were supposed to clarify the scriptures that had come to be associated with both Judaism and Christianity -- and as a purely spiritual religion of peace, Islam was intended to be a healing force in the world of religious conflict and ignorance.     And in many respects, at its essence, Islam began as the perfect religion.    There was no such thing as a multitude of wives -- secular religious police and laws -- clergy who punish and put to death -- the abuse of women -- the procuring of slaves -- or the murder of others in the name of God.   In the beginning, Islam was truly a religion of peace that had the power to transform the people who were a part of the spiritual community of believers.    

Once again Dane Dahl has much of the events of history correct where it is written: "Author and historian Dane Dahl writes that: Historians tell us these terrorist teachings are part of a cluster of ferocious beliefs that were deliberately added to one specific part of the formerly peaceful and tolerant Koran. These startling changes were made, decades after Islam was first founded in the Arabian city of Mecca. By the time of these changes, the original (and real) prophet of Islam was dead. Thereafter the religious headquarters was uprooted and moved to the city of Medina. Islam began changing; under new leadership it turned cruel and predatory.  In fact, historians also tell us Islam didn’t simply fall from the sky as a full-blown religion, but rather evolved from a persecuted sect of Jewish-Christians. The first Moslems in the city of Mecca were actually part of a larger group of Jesus’ followers called the Ebionites."

While the historical account that came to be known as the life of Mohammed was comprised of a conglomeration of a number of people, the person who left the island and became one of the early personifications of Mohammed, was very much a spokesman/politician who was more a preacher and community activist, than a spiritual teacher.   He became a political leader as he converted a large number of people with the power of his words -- instilling them with hope and change of a better life with him as their leader.    Yet, as more and more people became converted to Islam, the inevitable happened.   Perhaps Paul said it best when he proclaimed: "Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?  And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?   And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: 'I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.'  Therefore 'Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty'" (2 Cor 6:14-18 NKJ).

Any time that you have a large conversion of untransformed people who are carnal in their thinking and lifestyle, the inevitable carnalization of the core teachings are very quickly brought about.    The concept taught by Paul that "...you are the temple of the living God", is merely another way to portray the AskMoses.com presentation of the Final Temple that each person must become.    The spiritual concept that there is an organic barrier brought about by the vessel of the physical body that inhibits man's perception beyond the vibratory frequencies of the earth -- and that within each of us there is not only our soul and spiritual natures, but also the Indwelling Logos that is the One Teacher which was portrayed as the One True Prophet by both the Ebionites, and the Muslims -- is simply a spiritual reality that few men of an organic physical consciousness can come to terms with.   

In the same way that the biblical authors warned that the "natural" organic mind of man will reject the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of God (see Mysteries) as utter "foolishness" and nonsense, the carnalization of the core teachings of Islam with the conversion of a large multitude of people was very much inevitable.   Under the heading of Mohammed, the Wikipedia states that "In pre-Islamic Arabia, gods or goddesses were viewed as protectors of individual tribes, their spirits being associated with sacred trees, stones, springs and wells. As well as being the site of an annual pilgrimage, the Kaaba shrine in Mecca housed 360 idol statues of tribal patron deities."

The vast number of Muslims were converted with the sword, as stated in the Wikipedia: "Muhammad gained few followers early on, and was met with hostility from some Meccan tribes; he and his followers were treated harshly. To escape persecution Muhammad and his followers migrated to Medina (then known as Yathrib) in the year 622 CE. This event, the Hijra, marks the beginning of the Islamic calendar. In Medina, Muhammad united the conflicting tribes, and after eight years of fighting with the Meccan tribes, his followers, who by then had grown to ten thousand, conquered Mecca. In 632, a few months after returning to Medina from his Farewell pilgrimage, Muhammad fell ill and died. By the time of his death, most of the Arabian Peninsula had converted to Islam; and he united the tribes of Arabia into a single Muslim religious polity."

Thus, ordinary people who are described as being a part of "Communal life [which was] was essential for survival in the desert conditions, as people needed support against the harsh environment and lifestyle. Tribal grouping was encouraged by the need to act as a unit, this unity being based on the bond of kinship by blood.  Indigenous Arabs were either nomadic or sedentary (or bedouins), the former constantly traveling from one place to another seeking water and pasture for their flocks, while the latter settled and focused on trade and agriculture. Nomadic survival was also dependent on raiding caravans or oases, the nomads not viewing this as a crime" -- represented the mass of converts to Islam under this preacher/community activist who came to be known as Mohammed.

The Spiritual Community and religion that existed on the island, was very different than the religion of mass conversion through the sword that took place on the mainland.   These mass-conversion people merely took their old heathen mindset and lifestyle, and were forcefully made to embrace a religion that the concepts of which was beyond their ability to comprehend and understand the higher reality of.   Like the fourth century Christians who converted Jesus to the heathenism of Pagan Rome, with the conversion of the masses by the sword the highly refined spiritual religion of Islam was converted to the paganism of the common people.   

The original teachings of Islam were Spiritual and Gnostic, and had given birth to a purely spiritual path which was based upon a direct contact with the Divine.    But, this is the true objective of the spiritual core of Judaism who in the allegory of the Torah, attempt to cross over the Spiritual Jordan and into the inner Promised Land.   This is the objective of the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Yeshua/Jesus and TheWay to enter the Inner Kingdom.   Again, this was the objective of the Spiritual Christians who were called Gnostics.   And it was the objective of the Spiritual Muslims to make an inner journey to what they portrayed as Spiritual Mecca, and enter what has come to be known as the Distant Mosque that was not of this world. 

 

 

 

 

 

The Corruption And Impersonation Of The True Prophet: One of the most important teachings that had to be restored was that of what Peter called The True Prophet (see True Prophet).   As Peter stated in the Homilies of his disciple Clement: The True Prophet 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.    Therefore, if the religion of Islam was to be more pure than the corrupted doctrines of Pagan Rome which had come to rule over Christianity, this important concept of the One Teacher -- i.e., the One Prophet -- had to be restored.    It was noted by  that the original teachings of Mohammed portrayed his “preaching the advent of the Anointed one who is to come" (Patricia Crone and Michael Cook: Hagarism: The Making of the Islamic World. Malta: Cambridge University Press, 1977).   And thus, these original teachings associated with Mohammed were spiritual, and portrayed the Anointed One coming within the mind of the true Muslim who seeks the Indwelling True Prophet.    It is also noted that the actual historical person of Mohammed became so obscured by myth and folklore, that Mohammed “almost disappeared behind a colorful veil of legends and myths; the bare facts were commonly elaborated in enthusiastic detail, and were rarely if at all seen in their historical perspective” (Fred M. Donner. Muhammad and the Believer . Cambridge: Belknap Press of Harvard University Press , 2010)  

The problem was that with the mass conversion of a great number of people by the power of the sword, the Inner True Prophet that dwells within the heart and mind of all of mankind, came to be reinterpreted as the historical personage of Mohammed -- an historical man who was superimposed over the teachings of the True Prophet.   And the Word of God that could only be received via the True Prophet by those who made the journey within one's own mind and being, came to be reinterpreted by the carnal minded Muslim converts as the written words of the Qur'an.   Yet, from a spiritual perspective, nothing could have been further from either the truth, or the original core teachings of Islam -- the objective of which was to open the inner door and make the journey to the Spiritual Mecca that is not of this world.

The spiritual essence of Islam has to some degree remained somewhat sustained, in the inner core of the way of the Sufi.   Under the heading of Sufism the encyclopedia states that Sufism: "...is generally understood to be the inner, mystical dimension of Islam. ...Classical Sufi scholars have defined Sufism as 'a science whose objective is the reparation of the heart and turning it away from all else but God.'  Alternatively, in the words of the renowned Darqawi Sufi teacher Ahmad ibn Ajiba, 'a science through which one can know how to travel into the presence of the Divine, purify one’s inner self from filth, and beautify it with a variety of praiseworthy traits'"

Islam was supposed to again make known the knowledge of the ancient Mystery Religion of Judaism, by restoring the spiritual objectives of the Ebionite Nazirene teachings of Jesus and TheWay.   As stated in the above, this pure Gnostic Spiritual Path was "...a science through which one can know how to travel into the presence of the Divine", in the same manner that the Disciples of Jesus could enter in the "narrow way" within themselves, and Passover into the inner reality of the Kingdom of God.     Yet, often the Sufis were hunted down and murdered by the mainstream of those who called themselves Muslims, but were too carnal to understand the spiritual reality of the Journey in TheWay.   Thus, returning to the article under Sufism in the encyclopedia it states: "According to some modern proponents, such as Idries Shah, the Sufi philosophy is universal in nature, its roots predating the arising of Islam and the other modern-day religions; likewise, some Muslims feel that Sufism is outside the sphere of Islam, although some scholars of Islam contend that it is simply the name for the inner or esoteric dimension of Islam."  The encyclopedia article then further explains that "Sufism is known as 'Islamic Mysticism,' in which Muslims seek to find divine love and knowledge through direct personal experience of God. Mysticism is defined as the experience of mystical union or direct communion with ultimate reality, and the belief that direct knowledge of God, spiritual truth, or ultimate reality can be attained through subjective experience (as intuition or insight)."

Thus, the question must be asked by every seeker of Truth: Is this spiritual objective of the Sufi any different than that presented by St. Nazianzen when he writes that when God is no longer an “...object of wonder”, but rather an “...object of desire” -- and we, desiring to be purified from the defilements of this world, make ourselves fit vessels for the Lord to indwell, the Spirit, according to St. Nazianzen, reveals to us our true nature, and the revelation of this manifest Sacred Knowledge makes “...us like God; so that when we have thus become like Himself, God may, to use a bold expression, hold converse with us as Gods, being united to us, and that perhaps to the same extent as He already knows those who are known to Him”.   St. Nazianzen then writes that “...the Divine Nature then is boundless and hard to understand” by those who are yet carnal and think as natural organic beings of this world.    Thus, to fulfill this objective, the seeker must become a Spiritual Muslim -- i.e., in total submission to the Will of God.    And in the same way that when a husband and wife succeed in becoming "one flesh", there is a joining of their Etheric bodies that is breathed through and merges the physical, and this is also true with respect to the man who has brought about the final stage of birth where Oneness with the Indwelling Logos is accomplished.   And this Wholeness and Oneness invokes that condition which the Sufis attempt to create within themselves as stated in the above where they initiate "...the experience of mystical union or direct communion with ultimate reality, and the belief that direct knowledge of God, spiritual truth, or ultimate reality can be attained through subjective experience" -- with the Knowledge imparted in this Union of Oneness, being realized in the meaning of the word Gnosis.   

While it is true that those spheres of mind that can be called "...intuition or insight" become greatly expanded and developed, the spiritual path of which Sufism is one of these, is far more than enhanced mental insight.   What can be called the Journey to Spiritual Mecca within the mind and being of the seeker/disciple, is as real as if a person was to physically journey to the the geographical Mecca of this world.   But as with all Spiritual Gnostic paths of TheWay, these spiritual concepts are difficult to impossible for the multitude of believers to grasp, and the teachers and guides are forced to use parables and allegory to convey what is beyond human organic comprehension.   Thus, the article under Sufism goes on to explain that: "Some teachers, especially when addressing more general audiences, or mixed groups of Muslims and non-Muslims, make extensive use of parable, allegory, and metaphor.  Although approaches to teaching vary among different Sufi orders, Sufism as a whole is primarily concerned with direct personal experience, and as such has sometimes been compared to other, non-Islamic forms of mysticism (e.g., as in the books of Seyyed Hossein Nasr)."

This "...direct personal experience"  with the Divine Logos within, is the embodiment of the Ebionite and Islamic teaching on The True Prophet which was explored by Peter in the Clementine Homilies.    And this is why Jesus taught that there is only One Teacher (see True Prophet) -- which Peter correctly warned: Hence, O beloved Clement, 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”. 

This statement with respect to the True Prophet remains the ultimate Truth today, as when this concept was originally taught by wise visionary mystics throughout man's past.    The ONLY Source of valid Truth for mankind to learn from, must be received directly from the True Prophet -- aka the Logos, or Son of God.    And in the same way that organic man who is carnal in his thinking, remains blind to the true inner meaning of the scriptures, this blindness remains upon the heart and mind of those who attempt to interpret the Qur'an.   And thus, the reality of the words of Clement of Alexandria when he warned that those who Plato "...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”.     Which is expressed in the above words of Peter in the statement that the True Prophet/Logos/Son of God 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"

What does it mean to "...desire ...the knowledge of God and His righteousness"???   It means that your desire to possess the Truth is so dominant in your life, that you totally submit to the Will of God and permit yourself to become Possessed by the Truth -- and the Truth alone.   You know that the Truth of God cannot be spoken by another man -- or written in a book for man to read -- but can only be imparted by those who live a Consecrated Life in TheWay.   Making their body and mind the Final Temple -- travailing in TheWay, as the lost prodigal son returns to his Heavenly Father by entering the Edeninc Kingdom within himself that is blocked to those who are not worthy -- i.e., "Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie" (Rev 22:14-15 NKJ).   And it was the restoral of this teaching -- and the rejection of the teachers of this world -- that was the primary objective of the original teachings of the religion that has come to be known as Islam.

In contradistinction, the great differences between Sufism and the great multitude of believers who were politically converted to Islam by virtue of the conquering sword, is demonstrated in the article under Sufism where it is explained that:  "Sufism, which is a general term for Muslim mysticism, sprang up largely in reaction against the worldliness which infected Islam when its leaders became the powerful and wealthy rulers of multitudes of people and were influenced by foreign cultures.  Harun al-Rashid, eating off gold and silver, toying with a harem of scented beauties, surrounded by an impenetrable retinue of officials, eunuchs and slaves, was a far cry from the stern simplicity of an Umar, who lived in the modest house, wore patched clothes and could be approached by any of his followers."

It is not at all that Sufism "...sprang up largely in reaction against the worldliness which infected Islam"  -- but rather, Sufism was the Gnostic Spiritual Path that sprang up from the original spiritual community that came into being on the island.   And this Gnostic Spiritual Path very much is the very essence of Islam -- in contradistinction to the multitudes who were converted by the political sword, and remained carnal in their understanding.   And typically, as a spiritual movement, Sufism was not dependent upon the letter of the written word in the manner of the outer multitude of Islam, and this is demonstrated in the article under Sufism where it is explained that: "It is to be remembered that Sufism is transmitted from the heart of the teacher to the heart of the student, not through texts; and also, that texts may not convey everything, or may be read by different seekers on different levels. Therefore the notion of a 'formalization of doctrine' in Sufism is not strictly correct."   And since there was really only One True Teacher, then only those teachings that are transmitted from the Heart of the Logos or True Prophet, into the heart and mind of the True Muslim who lives in the totality as a divine expression of God, would be considered spiritually valid.  And while this has often been viewed as a deviation from Islam by the carnal Muslims, it represents the very core objectives of bringing about that condition of the spiritual transformation of the mind and being that initiates the necessary Wholeness and Completion where one is able to be taught by God.   Where it is written that "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 reference is not to the historical man Jesus -- but rather, to the Indwelling Logos/True Prophet/Son of God   That the historical man Jesus, as well as other Mystics and Visionaries that the world has never heard of, fulfilled this statement, represents the original objectives of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.   That the leaders of these religions remain blind and spiritually disenfranchised from the Common Source, is an abomination that represents the utter failure of all three religions. 

How does a True Spiritual Muslim fulfill the Inner Meaning of the Qur'an?  It is important to understand the mindset and life of Mohammed as portrayed in the words of the article on The Prophet, The Self & Society as presented by the Granada Mosque where it is written that: "Muhammad was the organic form of man – ‘a pure natural believer in Allah’ [Al Hajj 22. He was sent as Messenger and ruler. He came to exemplify the Message. His wife ‘Aisha described him as ‘the Qur’an walking’. He describes himself thus: Gnosis is my capital. Intellect is the basis of my ‘deen’. Love is my foundation. Yearning for Allah is my mount. Remembrance of Allah is my intimate companion. Reliance on Allah is my treasure. Sorrow is my companion. Knowledge is my armour. Patience is my cloak. Contentment is my booty. Incapacity is my boast. Doing without is my profession. Certainty is my food.  Truthfulness is my intercessor. Obedience of Allah is enough for me. Jihad is my character, and the coolness of my eye is in the prayer."

If one is to follow in the footsteps of Mohammed in search of the True Prophet and the Gnosis/Divine Manna that only God can impart into the mind of man, then this can only be accomplished when one's life begins to embody the words that "...Gnosis is my capital" -- especially with the recognition that there is only one Source of Gnosis.     The degree that each seeker can receive this Gnosis which is the Divine Manna of the Kingdom of God, is a measure of both self-knowledge and self-manifestation.   It has been pointed out that the knowledge of the pre-existent eternal soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes, is an open subject which is presented in the Qur'an in the words: "How can you deny God, when you were dead and God gave you life? Then God will cause you to die, and then revive you, and then you will be returned to God." (Quran 2:28).   The article on Reincarnation tells us that: "Most Ismaili Shi'a Muslims completely accept the idea of reincarnation.   Some Sufi groups suggest that mystics and poets in the Islamic tradition have celebrated this belief:  'I died as mineral and became a plant, I died as plant and rose to animal, I died as animal and I was man. Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?' Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi (Persian Sufi)" 

 

 

 

 

 

The Relationship Of Paul And Mohammed: From a higher perspective, the person who came to be known as Mohammed was very much parallel to the historical person known as the Apostle Paul.    The original Ebionites opposed Paul, because there were a number of Gentiles who wrote Epistles and taught under the name of Paul.   

Of the Ebionites it was noted by the early Church writer Irenaeus: "Those who are called Ebionites agree that the world was made by God... they use the Gospel of Matthew only, and repudiate the Apostle Paul, maintaining that he was an apostate from the Law."  What does this mean?  Did the Ebionites condemn Paul?  Or did they condemn the misunderstandings of the Law that many spiritually ignorant non-Jews assumed Paul to be promoting?  The problem is not so much with Paul -- but rather, the ignorance of both the Jews and the Christians with respect to why the Ebionites seemingly condemned Paul.   

To begin to understand why the Ebionites condemned Paul, you must first understand that his Epistles were not only corrupted (see Bible Corruption), but numerous writings attributed to Paul were authored by anti-Jewish Gentiles who were members of the very Gnostic Greek Mystery religions.   Yet, Paul was not wrong on a number of points -- but in many instances, he espoused a very different religion than Jesus and the Ebionite Jerusalem Congregation.  This fact is noted in the Encyclopedia Britannica where it writes: “In calling Paulinism 'Christocentric', one raises the question as to its relation to the Gospel proclaimed by Jesus... how far he unconsciously modified the Gospel by making Christ its subject matter rather than its revealer.... Paul... put all into so fresh a perspective as to change the relative emphasis on points central to the teaching of Jesus, and so alter its spirit. A school of writers, by no means unappreciative of Paul as they understand him, of whom W. Wrede may be taken as example, answer that Paul so changed Christianity as to become its 'second founder' - the real founder of ecclesiastical Christianity as distinct from the Christianity of Jesus.  They say, 'either Jesus or Paul' it cannot be both at once’”.  

When Paul wrote that the written text of the Torah amounted to (allegorical) "Jewish fables" (Titus 1:14) -- and a ritual observance of the Torah as practiced by carnal Jews equated to the "letter that killeth" -- i.e., brings spiritual death to those who practice and observe it outwardly.   That the Law is spiritual, and is not to be observed outwardly in the ritual manner of the Pharisees, is seen in the words of Epiphanius when he wrote about the Ebionites that they "do not accept Moses' Pentateuch in its entirety; certain sayings they reject... stating Christ has revealed this to me, and will blespheme most of the legislation" (Panarion 30.18.7-9).   How can those who are said to be Torah Observant, l blespheme most of the legislation"?  Thus, the Law has a spiritual meaning and must be turned within, in order to overcome in the manner that Jesus did.   In Galatians Paul attempts to convey to the readers that the written text of the Torah is an allegory -- demonstrating that the two sons of Abraham are not physical/historical people, but allegorical symbols -- but since he failed to convey why the scriptures were written in this manner, or how to decipher the inner concealed soul and spiritual meaning of the written word, the resulting incompletion has inhibited the believers from gaining any real insight into the true meaning of the scriptures.   

In view of the fact that the very Gnostic sources of Islam understood that the two sons of Abraham -- and even the allegorical portrayal of Abraham himself that carnal Muslims believe to be their physical connection to Judaism through Ishmael, the alleged first son of Abraham -- is nothing more than their failure to understand the spiritual meaning of the Qur'an.   And while there were originally writings that explained these realities of scripture more plainly, these writings were destroyed by carnal Christians, Jews and Muslims.  

That the literal written word of the Torah is as a cloak for the inner soul and spiritual meaning that the people of a carnal and organic mind of this world are blind to, is seen in the statement of Jewish Mysticism in the Zohar when it warns: "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." (see No Jew Has Read The Torah ).   And if we ask, why has no Jew read the Torah?   The Torah being an allegorical portrayal of the disciples own mind and being, employs forms and symbols to present profound truths to the genuine seeker of TheWay.   Thus, in the same way that when the scriptures makes reference to swine, dogs, twelve disciples, and even an historical man named Jesus, the portrayal of what is symbolized as Jews, represents a reality of mind and being that must be expanded beyond organic limitations, if one is to achieve the final stage of birth which is allegorically presented in the account of the crucifixion.   What is symbolized in the betrayal by Judas, the 30 pieces of silver, and the death of Judas, is merely an allegorical presentation of what must be brought about within the mind and being of the disciple of TheWay.   And in this respect, the modern Christians for the most part are far more the disciples of the AntiChrist (see The Church Of The AntiChrist), than were the historical Jewish people. 

In not understanding the cycles and realities of the Laws -- and especially The Law of Octaves that brings about the corruptions of all the institutions of this world -- organic man imagines that he can create institutions that will resolve man's struggles such as socialism, communism, government programs or any other manmade resolutions.   Yet, his failure to understand that all things of the earth are subject to corruptions -- and these corruptions are brought about by the very Laws that move all things in this world -- and this corruption is due to the incompletion of the frequencies of the earth-vibration -- and without Wholeness, all things of the earth will degenerate -- those who ignorantly propose these worldly solutions, fail to understand that all institutions of the earth will turn upon their own First Principles.    And, this includes the reality that in the twisting of the Law of Octaves, man's religious institutions have all turned upon their very First Principles.  

From an allegorical and spiritual perspective, one of the primary biblical statements in the Ten Commandments which bar the people from making an image of anything that already exists in heaven -- i.e., "You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth" (Exod 20:4 NKJ) -- goes far beyond what most people can begin to even imagine.   In view of the fact that whatever is on the earth is merely an incomplete reflection of what already exist in the heavenly spiritual realms, everything that man builds that is genuine, must connect heaven and earth (spirit and flesh) within man himself.   When Jesus told the Pharisees that the Kingdom will never come upon the earth in the manner that men look for it (Luke 17:20-21), this is because the Kingdom already exists, and the objective is to manifest the Kingdom within one's self by becoming the Final Temple.   
In the same way that the Kingdom already exists, so too does the True Church of God -- the True Mosque, Synagogue and Temple.    And in the same way that Jesus taught that there is only One Teacher (see
True Prophet) -- and that his disciples should not be called teacher, because that would make them the disciples of the Left Hand (god of this world) and the AntiChrist -- the same is true of any religion.   The True Religion of God in the earth, must be the means to connect the disciple/seeker with the existing Divine Temple/Church/Synagogue/Mosque that already exists in Heaven.    Any religion that teaches men doctrines of belief -- promotes a kingdom that will come upon the outer world -- and promotes the person's passage into the kingdom in an after death state -- such a religion is counterfeit, and of the Left Hand and the AntiChrist.   

Throughout the foregoing chapters and subheadings I have explored the relationship of the Etheric Field, and what we perceive to be concrete matter through the illusions of the senses which are themselves of an earth-bound frequency.   Thus, again quoting the book, Urbausteine der Materie, by physicist Walter Thirring where he wrote about matter that modern physics “...has put our thinking about the essence of matter in a different context.   It has taken our gaze from the visible - the particles - to the underlying entity, the field.   The presence of matter is merely a disturbance of the perfect state of the field at that place; something accidental, one could almost say, a ‘blemish’.   Accordingly, there are no simple laws describing the forces between elementary particles… Order and symmetry must be sought in the underlying field.”   Thus, the purpose of religion is to maintain a mindset and lifestyle that will bridge the divide between flesh and spirit within the person -- thereby permitting what is biblically portrayed as the Second Coming or End Times -- i.e., the Coming of the Kingdom within the seeker/disciple.   

From the perspective of mind which is portrayed as the physical or "blemish" within the Etheric Field which the organic mind of man cannot perceive beyond in his carnal state, the words "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" (Prov 14:12), is true of all perceptions and thinking from the perspective of what Jesus called the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).    Unless you understand the reason why ALL PEOPLE who attempt to perceive and understand man's own higher soul and spiritual reality from the vision and comprehension of the organic physical mind are all equally in error, then no progress can be made to escape the way of death.    What is portrayed by Jesus as the Far Country, represents the way of death -- i.e., "For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found" (Luke 15:24).   Which is the true meaning of Ecc 9:5 that "the dead know nothing".   Or when Jesus spoke of the people of this world and said: "...let the dead bury their own dead" (Matt 8:22 NKJ).    Or, in the words of Paul: “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 escape and overcome this way of death that all men of an organic (natural) mind and consciousness are subject to, each person must first come to terms with the statement that "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death".    Until a person comes to terms with the reality that every way of man is the way of death -- and the seeker strives to overcome the human organic limitations that makes this statement a reality of the prodigal sons and daughters who are lost in the Far Country -- then there is very little hope for any real progress.    The spiritual core of all religions is the path of transformation and coming to Know Self -- and learning about God.   The fact that all religions very quickly fall into the hands of the pseudo-clergy of this world -- who attempt to interpret the spiritual core principles from the perspective of the organic mind which is spiritually dead -- is the reason why every religious path very quickly becomes corrupted.

In many respects, the same corruptions that began with Paul, paralleled those which were brought about by a succession of people claiming to be Mohammed.   To again quote the Encyclopedia Britannica where it writes: “In calling Paulinism 'Christocentric', one raises the question as to its relation to the Gospel proclaimed by Jesus... how far he unconsciously modified the Gospel by making Christ its subject matter rather than its revealer.... Paul... put all into so fresh a perspective as to change the relative emphasis on points central to the teaching of Jesus, and so alter its spirit. A school of writers, by no means unappreciative of Paul as they understand him, of whom W. Wrede may be taken as example, answer that Paul so changed Christianity as to become its 'second founder' - the real founder of ecclesiastical Christianity as distinct from the Christianity of Jesus.  They say, 'either Jesus or Paul' it cannot be both at once’”.

In the same way that some of the Epistles attributed to Paul put the total focus on the historical man Jesus -- and these were then interpreted only in the carnal sense -- the spiritual Christ, over the historical 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).    This is true of all religions -- i.e., the Jew must seek the Promised Land within himself -- the Christian must seek to enter the Inner Kingdom -- the Muslim must seek to journey to the Distant Mosque in the Spiritual Mecca within.   But since counterfeit clergy and counterfeit teachers and authorities all dwell in what Jesus called the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), they all equally lead the congregations in the wrong direction.

In the same way that, in the corruption of Christianity, the whole focus was shifted from the spiritual to the physical in the personification of the historical Jesus, in the corruption of Islam the focus was put on the historical Mohammed as the prophet -- who, in the minds of the people, became a replacement for the True Prophet that each Muslim was to seek out in the Distant Mosque in the Spiritual Mecca within themselves.    And thus, while Islam in its original form was a divinely inspired religion that acted as a path for the disciple/seekers to make the necessary Journey to Spiritual Mecca -- enabling them to learn from the True Prophet -- the spiritual essence of Islam that originated on the island  (see The Real Islam), very quickly became corrupted when embraced by the carnal mind of the Arab converts. 

At the birth of both the Ebionite Nazirene teachings of TheWay, as well as Islam, the original movement was spiritual -- and as such, it was multi and inter-dimensional.    The core group of the original disciples of TheWay were comprised of those who had themselves fulfilled the Law and the Wisdom of the Prophets, and brought about the Spiritual manifestation of the Kingdom within themselves (see A Purely Spiritual Kingdom).    And while this fact was openly stated by Peter (see Armageddon Lost), it remains foreign to the Christians who rejected the teachings and lifestyle of TheWay, to go in the way of the heathen Gentiles and Roman Emperors.   Thus, in the same way that Jesus taught that the Kingdom is within you (see http://GateOfEden.com ), Peter stated that the coming of the Kingdom within the disciples was the fulfillment of the End Times prophesies: "Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. These men are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord’" (Acts 2:14-21 NIV).    And this is also why Peter is quoted in the Second Epistle Of Clement as stating when the Kingdom will come: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.    Thus, only when the two within the mind of the disciple is One, and the outer is in harmony with the inner, and the cosmic duality of the male and female has been negated in the Oneness of the Divine Marriage, can the Kingdom which is allegorically portrayed as the End Times, be brought about -- and only then, within the mind and being of those who have like Jesus, fulfilled the Law within themselves.   This important spiritual knowledge which was suppressed and thrown away -- and condemned as Gnostic heresy by the Church -- has caused the Church to dwell in a self-imposed Spiritual Diaspora of their own making.@@@

In the article on Bible Corruption (see http://BibleCorruption.com ), I present the reality that the modern Fundamentalists position is in grave error -- i.e., they reason that: "God would not permit the Bible to be corrupted, because then men would not know what to believe".   In contradistinction to this flawed reasoning, in the above article I it is detailed that it was the very Laws of God that brought about this corruption of the scriptures, in order to provide basic teachings to the lost prodigal sons and daughters.   This process of dumbing down and making the pure spiritual scriptures less, so they can be comprehended and embraced by the multitude of believers who Paul states are too carnal to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom, is true across the spectrum of all genuine religious movements.    To even suggest that either Christianity of Islam is somehow exempt from the Laws and the Will of God -- as modern believers attempt to do -- is preposterously ignorant of the very Laws and Will of God that moves all things in this world.    The objective is the return of all the prodigal sons and daughters to the Edenic Kingdom which they departed from in what is allegorically portrayed as the Fall of Man -- and this objective would be impossible, if the scriptures and pure spiritual teachings were not made acceptable to lost carnal man.   Why?   So he can then use these lesser teachings as a means to begin his journey in TheWay.   Like the original Ebionite Nazirenes, while the pure teachings of what came to be Islam existed on the environment of the island -- embraced by a people seeking to bring about the necessary spiritual transformation within themselves -- these pure teachings could not exist among the people of the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- or those who Jesus portrayed as "without", who could only be taught in parables (see Mystery).   What this means is that the incomprehensible spiritual truths and higher realities that Paul warned would be perceived as utter "foolishness" and even "heresy", could only be presented to the multitude of people in allegorical forms and symbols.    And if this process of dumbing down and lessening of the teachings and scriptures did not take place -- brought about by the Laws and Will of God -- then the lost prodigal sons and daughters would remain slaves to what is portrayed as the Citizen or god of this world.   Which is the very reason why, in the Epistle of Peter and James, that it is presented that if the esoteric sacred knowledge was to become lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error."   And this is true.   And that the Church of Rome had thrown away the Key of Knowledge, and destroyed the sacred knowledge, was the reason why those same souls entered into life to restore those teachings in the creation of Islam.    And while Islam has preserved some teachings, it has thoroughly corrupted others, and it no longer serves its intended objective of providing the path in the disciple/seekers Journey in TheWay to the Distant Mosque in Spiritual Mecca, where they can then enter the Presence of the True Prophet.

In the article on the existence of pure scriptures, I demonstrate that an impure people cannot receive either pure scriptures, or pure spiritual teachings and concepts (see Pure Scriptures Do Exist).     And if it weren't for the corruptions of the historical Paul -- and those who wrote and taught in the name of Paul -- then the teachings of TheWay could not be restored as I have presently done -- and neither would the original teachings have survived into our present time.   There is simply no way that the Gentiles would have been able to embrace the original teachings which were preserved in the Spiritual Ebionite Nazirene Communities, because of their own lack of spiritual purity and  Wholeness which inhibited the necessary development and expansion of the mind -- which expansion of mind is necessary to bring about the next stage of birth.    Which means that if these teachings were not first promoted using dumbed down scriptures -- and then moved out in the form of what Paul portrayed as the "milk" of the Gospel (see Mystery) -- the teachings themselves would have very quickly faded into oblivion.   So Paul, and the many Gentiles who impersonated him, were all necessary in order to insure the survival of these important teachings.    And in like manner, if it were not for the original Mohammed, as well as the ensuing group of people who succeeded Mohammed and used that name, the whole of the teachings of Islam would have faded into oblivion.   In the same way that the majority of Greeks and Romans were too heathen and carnal in their thinking, mindset and lifestyle to even begin to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God, this same carnal condition plagues all the peoples of the earth -- and neither could the mind of the pagan Arabs comprehend the core spiritual teachings of Islam that originated on the island.   

Where the original Ebionite Nazirenes where themselves the embodiment of Wholeness, the clergy among the Gentiles who portrayed themselves as Orthodox were in many ways a prime example of a Fallen Church.   This fact is readily confirmed: “The story of Paul of Samosata”, writes Edward Gibbon in his The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, “may serve to illustrate the condition and character of the times”. As we read Gibbon’s description of this illustrious bishop, it is important to keep in mind that Gibbon was using Paul of Samosata not as a case in point of an individual heresy, but rather as an example to demonstrate “the condition and character of the times”.   Paul, who was Bishop of Antioch from 260 to 268, was very much like the rest of the bishops and clergy of the so-called Orthodox Church in the third and fourth centuries.   Gibbon writes of Paul that: “The wealth of that prelate was a sufficient evidence of his guilt, since it was neither derived from the inheritance of his fathers, nor acquired by the arts of honest industry. But Paul considered the service of the church as a very lucrative profession. His ecclesiastical jurisdiction was venal and rapacious; he extorted frequent contributions from the most opulent of the faithful, and converted to his own use a considerable part of the public revenue. By his pride and luxury the Christian religion was rendered odious in the eyes of the Gentiles. His council chamber and his throne, the splendor with which he appeared in public, the suppliant to which he dictated his answers, and the perpetual hurry of business in which he was involved, were circumstances much better suited to a state of a civil magistrate than to the humility of a primitive bishop. When he harangued his people from the pulpit, Paul affected the figurative style and the theatrical gestures of an Asiatic sophist, while the cathedral resounded with the loudest and most extravagant acclamations in the praise of his divine eloquence. Against those who resisted his power, or refused to flatter his vanity, the prelate of Antioch was arrogant, rigid, and inexorable; but he relaxed the discipline, and lavished the treasures of the church on his dependent clergy, who were permitted to imitate their master in the gratification of every sensual appetite. For Paul indulged himself very freely in the pleasures of the table, and he had received into the episcopal palace two young and beautiful women, as the constant companions of his leisure moments”.

To further “illustrate the condition and character of the times”, Gibbon writes that “Simony”, or the buying and selling of ecclesiastic positions within the church, “was not unknown in those times; and the clergy sometimes bought what they intended to sell. It appears that the bishopric of Carthage was purchased by a wealthy matron, named Lucilla, for her servant Majorinus”. Regarding the wholesale immorality and depravity of the churches, Gibbon writes that: “Fraud, envy, and malice prevailed in every congregation. The presbyters aspired to the episcopal office, which every day became an object more worthy of their ambitions”.   It is important to understand that when Constantine started his church, we must recognize the fact that the clergy and body of people who he drew into his church was very much like himself.   

While the problems with Paul from an historical and theological sense has been well documented, the carnal mindset, lifestyle, thinking and manmade doctrines of the Church, has inhibited its spiritual restoral.   That the Epistles attributed to Paul were authored by a number of non-Jews, and that many of these pseudo-Paul's were hostile to Judaism, is the primary reason why the Ebionites condemned the apostasy of Paul and his impersonators.   And the fact that many of these Epistles were written by members of the religion of Mithraicism, rightly makes Paul the father of Christian Gnosticism (see The Gnostic Paul) -- which in and of itself is not necessarily bad -- but we must also remember that there were major differences in the Greek Mystery religions and the system taught by Jesus and the people of the New Covenant.   The doctrine that was established within the segment of the Church which portrayed itself as Orthodox, promoted the belief that their Mithric sun-god in the form of Jesus was born among the Jews, in order to condemn them -- and after the crucifixion, established the Gentile Church which had always existed as the true religion (see Christianity Existed Before Jesus).  

While Paul was not wrong in his assertion that it would have been a waste of time for the non-Jews to become ritually Torah observant -- much quicker enlightenment was achieved by non-Jews who converted to a spiritual quasi-Buddhist lifestyle which was what Paul promoted.   But the problem worsened when the carnal non-Jewish converts started writing their doctrines directly into the Epistles associated with the name of Paul.   Many of the more anti-Jewish pro-Gnostic Epistles attributed to Paul were in fact eventually suppressed by the Church, because these writings demonstrated that they were authored by a non-Jew-- and many of them were anti-Jewish Mithric Gnostic.  

As an example: The second century Church Father Clement of Alexandria writes that: “And further, that the same God that furnished both the Covenants was the giver of Greek philosophy to the Greeks, by which the Almighty is glorified among the Greeks, he shows. And it is clear from this. Accordingly, then, from the Hellenic training, and also from that of the law are gathered into the one race of the saved people those who accept faith: not that the three peoples are separated by time, so that one might suppose three natures, but trained in different Covenants of the one Lord, by the word of the one Lord. For that, as God wished to save the Jews by giving to them prophets, so also by raising up prophets of their own in their own tongue, as they were able to receive God’s beneficence, He distinguished the most excellent of the Greeks from the common herd, in addition to ‘Peter’s Preaching,’ the Apostle Paul will show, saying: ‘Take also the Hellenic books, read the Sibyl, how it is shown that God is one, and how the future is indicated. And taking Hystaspes, read, and you will find much more luminously and distinctly the Son of God described, and how many kings shall draw up their forces against Christ, hating Him and those that bear His name, and His faithful ones, and His patience, and His coming.’ Then in one word he asks us, ‘Whose is the world, and all that is in the world? Are they not God’s? ‘ Wherefore Peter says, that the Lord said to the apostles: ‘If any one of Israel then, wishes to repent, and by my name to believe in God, his sins shall be forgiven him, after twelve years. Go forth into the world, that no one may say, We have not heard’”.

These words attributed to Paul by Clement, have been suppressed by the Church, and the Christians remain under the grave misconception that the Ebionite/Nazirenes opposed Paul merely because he condemned a ritual observance of the Torah -- which the Ebionite/Nazirenes who were Gnostic and vegetarian, did not themselves hold to.   That Clement of Alexandria is quoting an Epistle attributed to Paul that encourages Christians to "read the Sibyl" -- taking and reading Hystaspes, who is portrayed as "the first patron of Zoroaster" -- and thus, a research article on Hystaspes reveals that: "According to Avestan history, Vištâspa offered asylum to Zarathustra when the latter was hunted down by his opponents, the priests of the god Mithra. Later, the king organized a debate between the prophet and the priests; when Zarathustra had proved that his doctrines were superior, Vištâspa became an adherent of the new religion. Legend has elaborated this story and added an intervention by Ahuramazda in person"   If the Ebionite Nazirenes would have accepted the Greek Gnosticism that was promoted under the authorship of Paul, they would have totally undermined their own position among the Essenes and Hebrews -- and would not have been able to guide Jewish and Spiritual Christians in TheWay.   That the Mithric traditions and celebrations became an integral part of the Gentile Church, has inhibited Jews from embracing the teachings of Jesus and TheWay (see Passover vs Easter).  

In the book Christ or Paul?, the Rev. V.A. Holmes-Gore wrote: "Let the reader contrast the true Christian standard with that of Paul and he will see the terrible betrayal of all that the Master taught....For the surest way to betray a great Teacher is to misrepresent his message....That is what Paul and his followers did, and because the Church has followed Paul in his error it has failed lamentably to redeem the world....The teachings given by the blessed Master Christ, which the disciples John and Peter and James, the brother of the Master, tried in vain to defend and preserve intact were as utterly opposed to the Pauline Gospel as the light is opposed to the darkness."

The theologian Soren Kierkegaard, writing in The Journals, echoes the above sentiment: "In the teachings of Christ, religion is completely present tense: Jesus is the prototype and our task is to imitate him, become a disciple. But then through Paul came a basic alteration. Paul draws attention away from imitating Christ and fixes attention on the death of Christ The Atoner. What Martin Luther. in his reformation, failed to realize is that even before Catholicism, Christianity had become degenerate at the hands of Paul. Paul made Christianity the religion of Paul, not of Christ.  Paul threw the Christianity of Christ away, completely turning it upside down. making it just the opposite of the original proclamation of Christ"

The theologian Ernest Renan, in his book Saint Paul, wrote: "True Christianity, which will last forever, comes from the gospel words of Christ not from the epistles of Paul. The writings of Paul have been a danger and a hidden rock. the causes of the principal defects of Christian theology."

Albert Schweitzer, winner of the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize, has been called "one of the greatest Christians of his time." He was a philosopher, physician, musician, clergyman, missionary, and theologian. In his book, The Quest for the Historical Jesus and his Mysticism of Paul he writes: "Paul....did not desire to know Christ....Paul shows us with what complete indifference the earthly life of Jesus was regarded....What is the significance for our faith and for our religious life, the fact that the Gospel of Paul is different from the Gospel of Jesus?....The attitude which Paul himself takes up towards the Gospel of Jesus is that he does not repeat it in the words of Jesus, and does not appeal to its authority....The fateful thing is that the Greek, the Catholic, and the Protestant theologies all contain the Gospel of Paul in a form which does not continue the Gospel of Jesus, but displaces it."

William Wrede, in his book Paul, informs us: "The oblivious contradictions in the three accounts given by Paul in regard to his conversion are enough to arouse distrust....The moral majesty of Jesus, his purity and piety, his ministry among his people, his manner as a prophet, the whole concrete ethical-religious content of his earthly life, signifies for Paul's Christology nothing whatever....The name 'disciple of Jesus' has little applicability to Paul....Jesus or Paul: this alternative characterizes, at least in part, the religious and theological warfare of the present day"

Rudolf Bultman, one of the most respected theologians of this century, wrote in his Significance of the Historical Jesus for the Theology of Paul: "It is most obvious that Paul does not appeal to the words of the Lord in support of his....views. when the essentially Pauline conceptions are considered, it is clear that Paul is not dependent on Jesus. Jesus' teaching is -- to all intents and purposes -- irrelevant for Paul."

Walter Bauer, another eminent theologian, wrote in his Orthodoxy and Heresy in Earliest Christianity: "If one may be allowed to speak rather pointedly the Apostle Paul was the only Arch-Heretic known to the apostolic age."

George Bernard Shaw, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1925; in his Androcles and the Lion, we read: "There is not one word of Pauline Christianity in the characteristic utterances of Jesus....There has really never been a more monstrous imposition perpetrated than the imposition of Paul's soul upon the soul of Jesus....It is now easy to understand how the Christianity of Jesus....was suppressed by the police and the Church, while Paulinism overran the whole western civilized world, which was at that time the Roman Empire, and was adopted by it as its official faith."

Will Durant; in his Caesar and Christ, wrote: "Paul created a theology of which none but the vaguest warrants can be found in the words of Christ....Through these interpretations Paul could neglect the actual life and sayings of Jesus, which he had not directly known....Paul replaced conduct with creed as the test of virtue. It was a tragic change."

Martin Buber, the most respected Jewish philosopher of this century, wrote in Two Types of Faith: "The Jesus of the Sermon on the Mount is completely opposed to Paul"

In one of the best books on early Christianity, Those Incredible Christians, Dr. High Schonfield reports: "It was not only the teaching and activities of Paul which made him obnoxious to the Christian leaders: but their awareness that he set his revelations above their authority and claimed an intimacy with the mind of Jesus, greater than that of those who had companied with him on earth and had been chosen by him....It was an abomination, especially as his ideas were so contrary to what they knew of Jesus, that he should pose as the embodiment of the Messiah 's will....Paul was seen as the demon-driven enemy of the Messiah....For the legitimate Church, Paul was a dangerous and disruptive influence, bent on enlisting a large following among the Gentiles in order to provide himself with a numerical superiority with the support of which he could set at defiance the Elders at Jerusalem. Paul had been the enemy from the beginning. and because he failed in his former open hostility he had craftily insinuated himself into the fold to destroy it from within."

It is important to understand the relationship between the teachings of Jesus, and the theology that has been created from the perspective of the Epistles of the Apostle Paul -- a man who never met Jesus in his lifetime.   Under the heading of Jesus and Paul, the Encyclopedia Britannica writes: “In calling Paulinism 'Christocentric', one raises the question as to its relation to the Gospel proclaimed by Jesus... how far he unconsciously modified the Gospel by making Christ its subject matter rather than its revealer.... Paul... put all into so fresh a perspective as to change the relative emphasis on points central to the teaching of Jesus, and so alter its spirit. A school of writers, by no means unappreciative of Paul as they understand him, of whom W. Wrede may be taken as example, answer that Paul so changed Christianity as to become its 'second founder' - the real founder of ecclesiastical Christianity as distinct from the Christianity of Jesus.  They say, 'either Jesus or Paul' it cannot be both at once’”.

 

 

 

 

 

The Encyclopaedia of Islam (New Edition), vol. 7 (1993), p. 361, in article "Muhammad" by "F. Buhl - [A.T. Welch]".

The name "Muhammad" is reported to have occurred previously among the Arabs (e.g. Ibn Durayd, ed. Wustenfeld, 6 f.; Ibn Sa'd, i/1, 111 f.) and therefore need not be regarded as an epithet adopted later in life by the Prophet. It should be noted, however, that the brief section on such persons given by Ibn Sa'd has the heading, "Account of those who were named Muhammad in the days of the djahiliyya [q.v.] in the hope of being called to prophethood which had been predicted", which indicates the tendentious nature of some of these accounts. The fact that the sources say frequently that in his youth Muhammad was called Amin, a common Arab name meaning "faithful, trustworthy", suggests the possibility that this could have been his given name, a masculine form from the same root as his mother's name, Amina. The name Muhammada for women occurs several times in the Syrian Book of the Himyarites.

 

The Pagan Arab Mindset: In many respects, the person and persons who came to be known as Mohammed, served very much the same purpose as Paul to move the "milk" of Islamic teachings out among a heathen, idolatrous people.    As explored in the foregoing subheadings, the task presented to Mohammed paralleled that of Paul, in that the required purpose that he served was to introduce a heathen and pagan nomadic people to higher spiritual ideas and concepts -- i.e., under the heading of Mohammed, the Wikipedia states that "In pre-Islamic Arabia, gods or goddesses were viewed as protectors of individual tribes, their spirits being associated with sacred trees, stones, springs and wells. As well as being the site of an annual pilgrimage, the Kaaba shrine in Mecca housed 360 idol statues of tribal patron deities."    That the Arab people were thoroughly pagan, and totally immersed in the pagan mindset, thinking and lifestyle, can be demonstrated in the facts presented in the following: "The religion of the Arabs, as well as their political life, was on a thoroughly primitive level...In particular the Semites regarded trees, caves, springs, and large stones as being inhabited by spirits; like the Black Stone of Islam in a corner of the Ka’bah at Mecca, in Petra and other places in Arabia stones were venerated also...Every tribe worshipped its own god, but also recognized the power of other tribal gods in their own sphere...Three goddesses in particular had elevated themselves above the circle of the inferior demons. The goddess of fate, al-Manat, corresponding to the Tyche Soteira of the Greeks, though known in Mecca, was worshipped chiefly among the neighboring Bedouin tribes of the Hudhayl. Allat—"the Goddess," who is Taif was called ar-Rabbah, "the Lady," and whom Herodotus equates with Urania—corresponded to the great mother of the gods, Astarte of the northern Semites; al-‘Uzza, "the Mightiest," worshipped in the planet Venus, was merely a variant form... In addition to all these gods and goddesses the Arabs, like many other primitive peoples, believed in a God who was creator of the world, Allah, whom the Arabs did not, as has often been thought, owe to the Jews and Christians...The more the significance of the cult declined, the greater became the value of a general religious temper associated with Allah. Among the Meccans he was already coming to take the place of the old moon-god Hubal as the lord of the Ka’bah...Allah was actually the guardian of contracts, though at first these were still settled at a special ritual locality and so subordinate to the supervision of an idol. In particular he was regarded as the guardian of the alien guest, though consideration for him still lagged behind duty to one’s kinsmen." (History of the Islamic Peoples, Carl Brockelmann, p 8-10)

In the same way that a Jerusalem of this world was used as an allegorical symbol among the Jews, the Mecca of this world was used as an allegorical symbol for the required journey to Spiritual Mecca within the disciple/seeker.    In the same way that the tribal god of the Jews was named Yahweh, and this name was then carried over into the allegory of the Torah, the pre-Islamic Arabian moon god was named Allah, and this was carried over in the Qur'an and the religion of Islam.   "The archeological evidence demonstrates that the dominant religion of Arabia was the cult of the Moon-god... In 1944, G. Caton Thompson revealed in her book, The Tombs and Moon Temple of Hureidha, that she had uncovered a temple of the Moon-god in southern Arabia. The symbols of the crescent moon and no less than twenty-one inscriptions with the name Sin were found in this temple. An idol which may be the Moon-god himself was also discovered. This was later confirmed by other well-known archeologists" (see R. Morey, The Islamic Invasion: Confronting The World's Fastest-Growing Religion, 1992, op. cit., pp. 213-215; idem., The Moon-God Allah In The Archeology Of The Middle East, 1994, op. cit., pp. 7-10).  

Morey also quotes Coon to support his claim that Allah was a pagan Arab "Moon-god" of pre-Islamic times. According to Morey: "As Coon pointed out, 'The god Il or Ilah was originally a phase of the Moon God.'   The Moon-god was called al-ilah, i.e. the god, which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times. The pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave to their children. For example, both Muhammad's father and uncle had Allah as part of their names. The fact that they were given such names by their pagan parents proves that Allah was the title for the Moon-god even in Muhammad's day" (see R. Morey, The Islamic Invasion: Confronting The World's Fastest-Growing Religion, 1992, op. cit., pp. 215-217; idem., The Moon-God Allah In The Archeology Of The Middle East, 1994, op. cit., p. 11).    In further quotation of Moshay: "Interestingly, not many Muslims want to accept that Allah was already being worshipped at the Ka'ba in Mecca by Arab pagans before Muhammad came. Some Muslims become angry when they are confronted with this fact. But history is not on their side. Pre-Islamic literature has proved this." (see Who Is This Allah?, G. J. O. Moshay, 1994, p 138).   And again: "But history establishes beyond the shadow of doubt that even the pagan Arabs, before Muhammad’s time, knew their chief god by the name of Allah and even, in a sense, proclaimed his unity...Among the pagan Arabs this term denoted the chief god of their pantheon, the Kaaba, with its three hundred and sixty idols" (see The Moslem Doctrine of God, Samuel M. Zwemer 1905, p 24-25). 

In the same manner that the Jews made pilgrimages to Jerusalem, while it was impossible for the pagan Arabs to journey into the inner Kingdom, the fact that they were already making pilgrimages to Mecca, meant that this pagan tradition and associated rituals could be allegorically used to represent the very real spiritual journey in TheWay.   While the journey to the Mecca of this world is little more than a surviving pagan tradition, what the tradition represents is of the utmost spiritual importance in the life of the person striving to become a True Muslim.    Thus, the meaningless traditions are necessary, in order to maintain the important esoteric teaching that only the mature Muslim can comprehend and accomplish.

In view of the fact that such a strong connection remained between the more ancient Arabian religions and pagan culture, and what came to be Islam -- even the required journey to Mecca and the use of the name Allah -- an interesting observation is set forth by Tor Andrae which respect to the historical Mohammed: "In fact, he did not at first intend to establish a new religion, but rather to reform the belief in Allah which already existed, and to show what this belief truly signified and rightfully demanded" (see Mohammed: The Man And His Faith, Tor Andrae, 1936, Translated by Theophil Menzel, 1960, p13-30).    While on one hand what Tor Andrae writes is true, because of his linear intellectual thinking, he was simply incapable of understanding the greater facts and truth.   All spiritually advanced souls who escape what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" -- which is parallel to the world of illusions of Plato's Cave -- understand that in order to begin to raise up the consciousness of the people, it is necessary to take many of the tenets of what they already believe, and allegorically rewrite them in a manner that will begin to supply the catalysts to connect the inner and outer realms within their own mind and being.   It is important to understand that the same exact words that Tor Andrae states about Islam, can also be stated of the Jews and the Torah.   Quoting the article The Law And TheWay: It is the position of many Biblical researchers that most of the Old Testament comes from other, more ancient writings. Even Jewish writers admit that most of the Hebrew writings were merely taken freely from Sumerian, Babylonian, Egyptian, and even Greek sources. Horace Meyer Kallen, at one time a professor at the Jewish New School of Social Research, said that the Book of Job was lifted bodily from an early and obscure Greek play. Scientist and author Immanuel Velikovsky admitted that there are "many parallels" between the Vedic Hymns and the Books of Joel and Isaiah. Hebrew scholar Zecharia Sitchin claimed that the Book of Genesis is based on the Sumerian creation myth. The story of Noah comes from the Sumerian legend of Gilgamesh. The Psalms were taken word for word from Akhenaton's Hymns to the Sun, written 600 years earlier in Egypt. The Ten Commandments were taken wholly from the Egyptian Book of the Dead. And so on through the books of the Old Testament.

The author's of the scriptures take the beliefs and customs of the people, and allegorically weave them into a series of catalyst symbols that begin to connect the person they are in this world, with their higher soul-self that is their true self, that is not manifest in the body or in this world.   Quoting the foregoing subheading entitled The Gnostic Spiritual Dilemma Of the PBS series The Bible's Buried Secrets,  archaeologist William Dever of the University of Arizona stated: "It challenges the Bible's stories if you want to read them literally, and that will disturb many people."   In further examining the problem: "The farther you go in the biblical text, the more difficult it is to find historical material in it," says David Ilan of the Hebrew Union College in Jerusalem. "The patriarchs go back to Genesis. Genesis is, for the most part, a compilation of myths, creation stories, things like that. And to find a historical core there is very difficult."   For instance, archaeologists have found evidence that a small group of Canaanite slaves escaped from Egypt — not the mass migration described in Exodus. 

In taking these myths, creation stories and folk lore, and recasting what the people already believe, into a series of allegorical symbols that conceal and preserve great spiritual truths to the mind of the initiate and mature, the Mystic is able to assist the disciple/seeker begin their journey in TheWay.   And this is why the author of the Epistle to Titus, portrayed the written text of the Torah as "Jewish fables" (Titus 1:14).    That by necessity, this same process was used in the Qur'an and other Islamic writings, is why it appeared to Tor Andrae that Mohammed attempted to deepen the already established teachings which were embraced by pre-Islamic Mecca -- i.e., "In fact, he did not at first intend to establish a new religion, but rather to reform the belief in Allah which already existed, and to show what this belief truly signified and rightfully demanded"

The vision of the intellectual historian is flat and linear.   It attempts to connect the more distant past, with the period in question, in an attempt to perceive what the historian believes is the evolution of religious beliefs.    The problem is that this linear mind does not comprehend that the authors of the scriptures used certain persons, places, things and events, because of the meaning of the names -- in conjunction with a whole language written in the numbers which are employed.    What is the meaning of the name Jerusalem?   Where the linear thinking intellectual will perceive Jerusalem from the mindset of his thinking, Jerusalem will mean something entirely different when garnished in the trappings of the numbers used, the incidentals of the mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms, the meanings of the names of the people involved, in conjunction with the historical significance and the meaning and attributes of the name itself.   Further, in the original scriptures the names are often spelled differently in accord with a condition of mind at that interval of time, in conjunction with actions that are seemingly being portrayed.   In his work De Principiis the Church Father Origen writes with respect to the Key of Knowledge that Jesus accused the blind Pharisees of throwing away: “But all the narrative portion, relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children, or to battles of different kinds, or to any other histories whatever, what else can they be supposed to be, save the forms and figures of hidden and sacred things? As men, however, make little effort to exercise their intellect, or imagine that they possess knowledge before they really learn, the consequence is that they never begin to have knowledge".    Where the linear thinking intellectual sees the celebration of marriages and the begetting of actual children, or historical battles, what is being conveyed in the language of the soul is mystical spiritual truths that organic man is blind to because he sees only the surface of the text.  

Again, to repeat the words of the historian and linear thinking scholar: "In fact, he did not at first intend to establish a new religion, but rather to reform the belief in Allah which already existed, and to show what this belief truly signified and rightfully demanded"  -- and yet, when the Key of Knowledge is applied that the organic person does not at all understand, nothing could be further from the truth.   And that the believers were blind to the spiritual meaning of what was being presented in the language of the soul, brought about serious and grave misunderstandings with respect to even the true objectives of the core teachings of Islam -- which is true of all religious teachings and concepts that is placed in the hands of common man.    

In contradistinction, the core teachings of those on the island where Islam was truly born (see The Real Islam), possessed none of these Arabian pagan influences that have come to be associated with Islam in its spiritually fallen state.   In the same way that the inner core of the pre-Nicene Church was accused of being a "secret system" (see The Secret Doctrine), what was promoted to the mainstream of Arabs who were too carnal to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God, was what Paul calls the "milk" of the Gospel that 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” (Origen; Contra Celsum).    To even suggest that the Arabs were more mentally and spiritually advanced than the Greeks and Romans -- and that they existed at a higher level that exempted them from the inherent organic conditions that equally effects all of mankind -- is not only misguided, but is a total denial of the human condition and the Laws of Creation.  

In the same way that the Roman's and Greek's could never have embraced the pure Ebionite Nazirene teachings of TheWay -- and they had to be made applicable to the heathen mindset by Paul -- neither could the Arabian nomadic tribes have accepted and embraced the pure core spiritual teachings which were conceived on the island where the core teachings of Islam were born.   And it was because of the inherent human condition, that the historical Mohammed was forced to dumb down and culturize these core spiritual teachings, in order to make them presentable to the Arab pagan mindset and lifestyle.   That Allah was at the time of Mohammed arising to the status of the head of all the gods, is why Mohammed used this name -- i.e., " Now there dwelt in Mecca a god called Allah. He was the provider, the most powerful of all the local deities, the one to whom every Meccan turned in time of need. But, for all his power, Allah was a remote god. At the time of Muhammad, however, he was on the ascendancy. He had replaced the moon god as lord of the Kaaba although still relegated to an inferior position below various tribal idols and three powerful goddesses: al-Manat, goddess of fate, al-Lat, mother of the gods, and al-Uzza, the planet Venus" (see Islam and the Arabs, Rom Landau, 1958 p 11-21).      

As stated in the foregoing, even before Mohammed, the Arabian people and tribes were required to make a pilgrimage to Mecca -- and this was allegorically retained, in order to designate making the Spiritual Journey within, to the Distant Mosque that was not of this world.    And while the Arabian people were incapable of embracing the pure spiritual concepts and esoteric teachings which was embraced by the core community on the island, the vast majority of these spiritual concepts could only be preserved in the allegorical cloak of the Qur'an itself.   Thus, under the heading of The Literal And The Allegorical as explored in the below, the Muneer Fareed web site states: God, Almighty has said: "It is He who sent down to you the Book; some of it comprises of the categorical verses (muhkamat)--these are basic to the Book--and others, the allegorical (mutashabihat ).(9:3) Ibn Habib al-Nisapuri reports three definitions of this topic: All of the Quran is muhkam, for the Almighty says: ". . .a book whose verses have been rendered categorical."(11:2) All of the Qur'an is allegorical, for the Almighty says: ". . .An allegorical writ with paired statements."

That neither the congregation of believers, their untransformed religious leaders, or the linear thinking intellectuals who are portrayed as experts, fail to understand this higher spiritual reality that is factually true and relevant to all genuine religious movements, is because they have yet to fulfill the Law within themselves which transforms them into the Final Temple -- which lack of transformation inhibits them from making the required journey to the Promised Land (Judaism), the Kingdom of God (Christianity), or the Distant Mosque in Spiritual Mecca (Islam).   That at their core, all three religions are exactly the same -- with the same exact objectives -- and that the only differences are the result of the allegorical scriptures which by necessity, had to present these essential spiritual Truths to people of a greatly different culture -- is the reality that confronts mankind.    And that the three religions have very little in common with the Eastern religions of Hinduism and Buddhism -- and the important spiritual Truths which form the core of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, remain unknown by the vast majority of the New Age today -- means that mankind remains spiritually lost because of the carnal mindset, thinking, lifestyle and manmade doctrines of belief, that each of the three religions continue to embrace. 

 

 

 

 

 

The Allegorical Qur'an:    Under the heading of The Literal And The Allegorical, the Muneer Fareed web site states: God, Almighty has said: "It is He who sent down to you the Book; some of it comprises of the categorical verses (muhkamat)--these are basic to the Book--and others, the allegorical (mutashabihat ).(9:3) Ibn Habib al-Nisapuri reports three definitions of this topic: All of the Quran is muhkam, for the Almighty says: ". . .a book whose verses have been rendered categorical."(11:2) All of the Qur'an is allegorical, for the Almighty says: ". . .An allegorical writ with paired statements.

Parallel to the statements and warnings of both the Jewish and Christian Mystics, the Qur,an Today Commentary quotes the Qur'an which states: He it is Who has revealed to you the Scripture, whereof some Ayats are Decisive- these are the Mother of the Scripture, and others are allegorical. Then as to those in whose hearts there is perversity, they in fact follow the allegorical part of it seeking trouble and seeking to give it interpretations. But no one knows the interpretation of it except Allah. And the steadfast in knowledge would say: "We believe in it,- the whole is from the presence of our Rabb." And no one minds except those possessed of understanding. (Surah Al-e-Imran: 6)

The key statement that reveals why there are so many interpretations of the Qur'an, and why carnal Muslims have themselves misinterpreted the whole objective of the Qur'an, is seen in the warning "...Then as to those in whose hearts there is perversity, they in fact follow the allegorical part of it seeking trouble and seeking to give it interpretations. But no one knows the interpretation of it except Allah.   

 

Quoting from IslamOnLine.net

Significance of the Allegorical Verses in the Qur'an
Allah says: "He it is Who hath revealed unto thee (Muhammad) the Scripture wherein are clear revelations - they are the substance of the Book - and others (which are) allegorical. But those in whose hearts is doubt pursue, forsooth, that which is allegorical seeking (to cause) dissension by seeking to explain it. None knoweth its explanation save Allah. And those who are of sound instruction say: We believe therein; the whole is from our Lord; but only men of understanding really heed." (Al `Imran: 7)

The ayah means that in the Qur'an there are two types of verses: Muhkam (Definitive and Lucid) and Mutashabih (Figurative and Allegorical). These words are used in the Qur'an in other places as well. We should try to understand their full meanings by checking other references.

In surat Hud Allah the Almighty has called the whole Qur'an Muhkam: "Alif Lam Ra (this is) a Book, whose verses are made decisive, then are they made plain, from the Wise, All-Aware:)” (Hud: 1)

The word Mutashabih means something similar or something that may have different or more than one meaning. In surat Al-Baqarah (2: 25) the fruits of Paradise are called "Mutashabih", meaning similar to what we have in this world.

In surat Az-Zumar the whole Qur'an is called Mutashabih: “Allah hath (now) revealed the fairest of statements, a Scripture consistent, (wherein promises of reward are) paired (with threats of punishment), whereat doth creep the flesh of those who fear their Lord, so that their flesh and their hearts soften to Allah's reminder. Such is Allah's guidance, wherewith He guideth whom He will. And him whom Allah sendeth astray, for him there is no guide." (Az-Zumar: 23)

 

In the QuranAlone

Appendix 5 - Heaven and Hell
The descriptions of Heaven and Hell throughout the Quran are allegorical. And the Quran tells us so whenever such descriptions occur as independent statements, not within a general subject. See 2:24-26, 13:35, and 47:15. The word "Mathal" (allegory) is used in these verses. Linguistically, the word "Mathal" in these verses can be removed, and we still have perfect sentences. But it is there because the descriptions of Heaven and Hell are allegorical.

What Heaven and Hell are really like is far beyond our comprehension. Hence the need for allegory.

On the web site Bahai Awareness, under the heading of Prophethood - The Verdict from Quran

I have read the Holy Quran and have drawn lesson from its clear and decisive meanings and avoided interpreting its allegorical verses except for their literal translation with this hope that Allah shall guide me through them at an appropriate time. In this way I have gone by the Quran's bidding in The Chapter of Ale Imran, verse 7: 'He it is Who has sent down to thee the Book: In it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they are the foundation of the Book: others are allegorical. But those in whose hearts is perversity follow the part thereof that is allegorical, seeking discord, and searching for its hidden meanings (taavil), but no one knows its hidden meanings except Allah' 

[Quran 35:11]…And no female conceives, or lays down (her load), but with His Knowledge. Nor is a man long-lived granted length of days, nor is a part cut off from his life, but is in a Decree (ordained). All this is easy to God.

This next statement from the Qur'an demonstrates that all events in this world are orchestrated and brought about by the Laws of God -- with the objective being to evolve the prodigal sons and daughters to make them Whole and Complete, so they can begin to bridge the great divided between earth and heaven, and return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.   Thus the Qur'an reads

[Quran 56:60] We have decreed (ordained) your time of death fixed, and I am not incapable of doing that…

If anyone desires a religion other than Islam, never will he be accepted of God; and in the next life, he will be in the ranks of those who have lost themselves and will burn in hell. (Qur'an 3:85)

 

 

 

The Spiritual Fall Of Islam: The original core group of souls who incarnated together to re-establish the Truth and Knowledge of TheWay that had been corrupted and destroyed by Pagan Rome, very much succeeded in their core primary objectives.   But in view of the fact that virtually all religions become corrupted as soon as they are adopted by the masses, this was very quickly the case with Islam.    In his book, The Pox Of Mohammed, author and historian Dane Dahl is correct in his statement that the original core group of souls -- one of which he portrays as the mystic and visionary who was the true founder of Ialam -- was representative of the core seekers who had themselves walked in TheWay, and succeeded to elevate themselves spiritually.   It was this core group of seekers who had formed the spiritual essence of the original teachings of Islam on the island -- who had remained on the island -- and were very much dead when Islam became an intolerant movement that was more political than spiritual.   Thus, quoting Dane Dahl's web site: "...Historians tell us these terrorist teachings are part of a cluster of ferocious beliefs that were deliberately added to one specific part of the formerly peaceful and tolerant Koran.  These startling changes were made, decades after Islam was first founded in the Arabian city of Mecca. By the time of these changes, the original (and real) prophet of Islam was dead. Thereafter the religious headquarters was uprooted and moved to the city of Medina. Islam began changing; under new leadership it turned cruel and predatory.  In fact, historians also tell us Islam didn’t simply fall from the sky as a full-blown religion, but rather evolved from a persecuted sect of Jewish-Christians. The first Moslems in the city of Mecca were actually part of a larger group of Jesus’ followers called the Ebionites."    If this is true, and "...terrorist teachings are part of a cluster of ferocious beliefs that were deliberately added to one specific part of the formerly peaceful and tolerant Koran.  These startling changes were made, decades after Islam was first founded in the Arabian city of Mecca. By the time of these changes, the original (and real) prophet of Islam was dead -- then it is also true that every Muslim that fails to prove the Truth by virtue of making the Spiritual Journey to the Mecca that is not of this world, is guilty and has the blood of those slain in the name of these terrorist teachings on their hands.   Again, if it is true that every Genuine Muslim by following the Path of Islam has the inherent power to enter the Spiritual Mecca that is not of this world, and prove the Truth by virtue of their own higher spiritual experiences and contact with the Divine in what is portrayed as The True Prophet, then the Judgment of those who have been slain in the name of Islam, will come upon all those who profess with their lips to be a Muslim -- and yet, fail to fulfill the true spiritual objectives of Islam.

In the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter portrays the plight of the modern Muslim as embracing bad beliefs about God.    And while this is basically true with respect to all the carnal perceptions of the organic people of all the religions of the earth, it is even more true with respect to the religion of Islam.    When the problem of the scriptures that was presented in the Homilies as the "mystery of the books with the power to deceive" was discussed (see Power To Deceive) -- explaining that "...even the falsehoods of Scripture are with good reason presented for a test.”    And what this means is that it is the nature of this world is to be perpetually confronted with a constant array of choices, judgments and tests that act as catalysts presented to the person seeking Truth.   Islam bases itself on the genealogy of the Torah and Old Testament -- and with respect to the nature of the Hebrew scripture,  in the words of Moses Maimonedes, who is one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, where he openly writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit.”    And what Peter explained was that these absurdities which are often "...repugnant to both reason and common sense", are written into the body of the text to: (1) inhibit the reader from believing the written word literally; (2) to conceal an important spiritual truth; (3) to test the reader to see if they are prepared to advance.    Those who merely believe what is written are blind believers who will believe virtually anything, and being spiritually flat-lined, they cannot move beyond that very elementary mindset and thinking that has caused them to hold what the Apostle Peter portrayed as bad beliefs about God.   The Church Father Origen went one step further and reasoned that "...What man is found such an idiot as" to believe these forms and symbols literally, and not to understand "...that every man must hold these things for images, under which the hidden sense lies concealed”?   (see Mystery).  

In the same way that when a beast becomes conditioned to its environment, when the mind of man is ruled over by his lower animal nature, he will believe virtually anything -- i.e., Pagan sacrifices, virgin sacrifices, belief in a warring and conquering god, belief in a vengeful god that is even more evil than the most vile of mankind.   As stated above, the Apostle Peter warns that the enigmas of the scriptures which he portrays as the "mystery of the books with the power to deceive" (see Power To Deceive), were intentionally inserted into the body of the text as a test to the reader.   Peter portrays the Gentiles as being easily deceived, because they are accustomed to believing bad things about God.   Thus, the god of the Old Testament has been insightfully portrayed as resembling the Wizard of OZ -- i.e., a magical nut case behind the curtain who liked physical circumcision, genocide of non-Jews including killing every woman & child -- a god who made man, then repented he even made man and killed everyone on earth but Noah and his immediate family -- a god who kills a man for trying to steady the ARK, a voodoo god who loves animal sacrifice and blood sprinkling, a god who sacrifices his son. The scriptures are very clear, it’s all allegorical about the Kingdom within.   The reader is warned  in John 6:63, that reading the scriptures literally has no profit at all (“the flesh profiteth nothing”) and leaves the reader spiritually bankrupt : "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life".

The objective of all genuine religions is purely spiritual -- and the purpose of the scriptures is to allegorically conceal and preserve the essential truths that each prodigal son needs to know, to begin the journey in TheWay that enables the seeker to return to the Kingdom of the Father.   As presented in An Inconvenient Truth, those prodigal sons who escape what Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country, are then condemned as heretics and outcasts by the vast majority of mankind whose thinking remains totally earth-bound and controlled by their lower carnal nature -- i.e., "...but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God" (John 16:1-2 NAS).   Why?    Because organic (carnal) man invents gods of his own making -- born in carnal man's own image -- and priests and rulers then arise who control the thinking and lives of the people by becoming the vicar of these man-created deities which the Spiritual Christians portrayed as a Demiurge (see The Demiurge - Allegory? Myth? What Is Reality?).

And this folly of carnal man who can be induced to believe virtually anything, has been perpetually exploited by charlatan religious leaders and fear-mongering political leaders, to exert control over the superstitious masses of the population.     The Mystic visionaries who have authored the world's scriptures, have knowingly used this inherent trait of animal-man to convey important concepts to those seekers who have begun to awaken to a higher reality that is impossible for carnal animal-man to even begin to envision.    And once properly understood, even the absurdities of scripture are inserted into the text as a test of the reader.   And this is true with respect to every aspect of the life that each of us is living.  

As stated on Divine Strategery , this world is God's School House -- and each of us is immersed in our own individualized course of instruction as the Laws respond to our every word, thought, desire and deed.    And in the same way that the Qur'an confirms that everyone's life and time of death is fixed -- i.e., [Qur'an 56:60] "We have decreed (ordained) your time of death fixed, and I am not incapable of doing that…" -- so too is all the events that transpire between physical birth and death: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   And while it is the primary obligation of those who are portrayed as religious leaders to make the people aware of the presence and reality of these Laws in the life of mankind, the vast majority of those who man looks to as religious leaders, are so immersed in promoting carnal manmade doctrines of belief intended to exempt believers from the ramifications of the Laws, that mankind generally dwell in a state of absolute ignorance as the the controlling factors and influences in their lives. 

That every thought is relevant to one's pursuit of the Kingdom, is the reason why Paul teaches the people to capture every thought into the seeker's struggle to pursue the Kingdom, and Jesus warns that man must account for "every idle word" that he speaks (see Overcome).     Why?   Because we are constantly being developed and tested by the Laws with respect to our progress in this, God's School House for the lost prodigal sons and daughters.    And the fact that the Jewish Promised Land -- the Christian Kingdom -- and the Islamic Distant Mosque in Spiritual Mecca -- is within each and every one of us, then our relationship to the Inner Logos and the Divine within each of us, is directly attributable to our own condition of mind and being that each of us has brought about in our lives.    Since the multitude of people merely embrace and follow the beliefs and philosophies of the teachers and authorities of this world, they dwell in a spiritually disenfranchised world of illusion and abject confusion.    On the other hand, the few who exercise constraint and develop their gift of reason, are able to make gains, because the Living Word of God is written in their hearts -- and with effort, begins to flood the mind with Truth that carnal animal-man cannot receive or comprehend.  

Using Christian Fundamentalists as an example: While they reject all facts contrary to what they want to believe, when it is pointed out that the Gospels were edited and corrupted by the Pagan Church of Rome, they react in a manner of blind-faith and suspension of reason.   They reply that if God permitted the Bible to be corrupted, then the people would not know what to believe -- and in reality, Fundamentalist Christians are basically spiritual atheists and agnostics.    Because they fail to understand that the Kingdom is within each of us -- and, in the words of Clement of Alexandria: “For by doing the will of God we know the will of God” (Stromata, Bk 1, Ch 8) -- they fail to understand the dynamic equation of how the lost prodigal sons and daughters become enlightened, even while dwelling in the dark ignorance of the Far Country.    And as explained in the article on Bible Corruption ( http://BibleCorruption.com ), they can't come to terms with the fact that it was the Will of God that the most corrupt copies of the scriptures be adopted by the Church, in order to reach the greatest number of people with the important spiritual concepts that would help them.    Because the Kingdom is within each of us ( Luke 17:20-21), any time that we begin to live the life that would enable the inner "narrow gate" to begin to open, so too does the higher spiritual impressions begin to trickle through the barrier into the "outer darkness" (see Outer Darkness ) in which organic man dwells.       

In the same way that the multitude of people would never have embraced and accepted the Gospels in their pure form (see Pure Scriptures) -- and that the Gospels had to first be made acceptable to the heathen mind of carnal animal-man to be acceptable -- if the core spiritual essence of Islam which existed on the island had not been corrupted when brought to the mainland, then what was accomplished by those souls who had incarnated to restore the teachings of TheWay would have been worthless.   In the same way that Paul states that it was impossible for the entry-level Christians to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom (see Mystery), the same was true when these esoteric teachings were restored under Islam.    If Sufism represents an expression of these original Muslim teachings in their semi-pure form on the island where the teachings of TheWay was restored, then their number has been totally lost in the revolutions of history.  

Throughout man's past, a person who succeeded in their own personal Jihad and overcame the Laws within himself, simply could not proclaim what his enlightened vision and understanding revealed to him.    Not without very quickly being turned upon as a satanic heretic by the common believer who are/were under the grave misconception that they are what is portrayed as a genuine Muslim.   So, how many Muslim Sufis succeeded in prevailing over the only real Jihad that mattered?   Because of the threat of immediate death, this is simply a question that the people of this world cannot even begin to answer.    It is a known fact that during the Middle Ages when the Christian Church plunged man into the Dark Ages, that there was a collusion between Jewish Mystics who were students of the Kabbalah, Christian Gnostics who used Gospels texts that survived destruction, and Islamic Mystics who understood the journey to Spiritual Mecca -- and that these three inner core groups worked together in the formation of Spiritual Communities that had threatened the very political structure of the shadow Church of Rome.    A Church which could only be defined as diabolical -- as portrayed in the letter by Martin Luther to to Pope Leo X on September 6th, 1520, where Luther wrote of the Christianity of his day, that the church, “…once the holiest of all, has become the most licentious den of thieves, the most shameless of all brothels, the kingdom of sin, death, and hell. It is so bad that even Antichrist himself, if he should come, could think of nothing to add to its wickedness” (Quoted in: The Great Thoughts; compiled by George Seldes).     And the Inquisitions, and marauding armies of this satanic Church, constantly hunted down and murdered the people who formed these Spiritual Communities which Rome saw as a threat against its authority to rule over the people.   

While Sufi Mystics who interacted with their Jewish and Christian Gnostic counterparts represented an important part of the equation with respect to these Spiritual Communities that taught and guided seekers in TheWay, this inner spiritual core of the three religions could not have existed, if the multitudes of the people did not embrace the allegorical symbolism of the religions which they did not understand with any spiritual depth.    There has to exist a common spiritual (allegorical) language that both act as a catalyst for the multitudes to connect with the inner dimensions of mind and being and the Kingdom, and the more enlightened spiritual guides who then use this spiritual (allegorical) language to convey important teachings and concepts to those who Paul portrayed as "babes in Christ".   Even in our present time, the most enlightened of men and women may very well exists in Spiritual Communities and monasteries without any knowledge of their presence by the world at large.    The Law that determines this factor of enlightenment, embodies the reality that you can never possess any greater level of Truth than you are willing to live and manifest in word, thought, desire and deed.   And while the language of our university scholars and intellectual cultural elite is spiritually flat-lined to the point that it is dead-ended, the inner core of these religious traditions not only possess a spiritual language that acts as a catalyst which opens the inner blockages of the mind -- but in many instances, this inner core possesses more pure copies of the scriptures that survived the corrupting influences of the religious politicians who lead the multitude of the entry-level believing communities.    And, in the case of a truly advanced soul who incarnate -- often behind the scenes -- because these more advanced souls innately know the alchemical secrets of the Laws, it is not even necessary to have access to these more pure copies of scriptures.

What this means is that, in order for the inner spiritual core to be effective and in many instances, to even exist, it was and is necessary for corrupted and carnal interpretations of these religious concepts and teachings to exist among the organic carnal believers.   So, when the religious politicians of the world who put themselves forth as authorities who speak for God tell you that their religious doctrines are pure and undefiled -- or that their doctrines represent the one true religion which is approved by God -- what they are professing is their own profound spiritual ignorance.     And when these pseudo-religious authorities are in competition with each other as is the historical case of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, the absurd claims of the counterfeit clergy become absolutely mind-boggling.   And with this said, only the most ignorant clergy from the Islamic world will promote the doctrine that the Qur'an exists in pure form -- that it is the actual word of God -- and that Islam supersedes all other religions to the degree that God desires believers to murder the unbelievers.    And any person who calls themselves a Muslim -- and believes this absurdity -- not only has failed the test of embracing bad beliefs about God -- but are themselves apostates to TheWay of Truth.@@@

In the same way that there were a number of men who were known as, and personified, the man known as the Apostle Paul -- and many of the corruptions of Christianity resulted from a misunderstanding of the Epistles attributed to him -- it was necessary for men who were personified as Mohammed to bring the religious concepts of Islam to the multitude of people who became the community of believers.    If these corruptions did not infect the core teachings of Islam, then the religion could never have become an effective means to positively effect a great many people to seek God and the Kingdom.   

By tradition it has been said that Mohammed could neither read nor write.  The tradition is that when Mohammed had a vision, his words which later came to be the Qur'an, were put to memory by his followers.   While there were a number of men who embodied the tradition of Mohammed, after the preacher and political leader Mohammed’s death, fragments of the Qur’an were written on palm leaves, rocks, and bones according to the Bukhari (vol.6:509 p.478).  Thus, there was no organized manuscript of the Qur’an prior to his death.  Some verses did not survive according to the Bukhari (vol.4:57,62,69,299).  Many who had memorized the Qur’an were killed, and Abu Bakr was worried that some parts of the Qur’an would be forever lost (Bukhari vol.6:509 p.477-478).   After the Qur’an was gathered, it still needed "compiling" years later.   Quoting the Wikipedia: During the life of Muhammad, parts of the Qur'an, though written, was scattered amongst his companions, much of it as private possession.  After Muhammad's death, Abu Bakr initially exercised a policy of laissez faire as well.  This policy was reversed after the Battle of Yamama in 633 AD.   During the battle, 700 Muslims who had memorized the Qur'an were killed. The death of Sālim, however, was most significant, as he was one of the very few who had been entrusted by Muhammad to teach the Qur'an.   Consequently, upon Umar's insistence, Abu Bakr ordered the collection of the hitherto scattered pieces of the Qur'an into one copy.  

Quoting the Wikipedia with respect to problems with the Qur'an it reads that: Other secular scholars, such as John Wansbrough and his students Michael Cook and Patricia Crone, were less willing to attribute the entire Qur'an to Muhammad (or Uthman), arguing that there is no real proof that the text of the Qur'an was collected under Uthman, since the earliest surviving copies of the complete Qur'an are centuries later than Uthman. (The oldest existing copy of the full text is from the ninth century.)   They alleged that Islam was formed slowly, over the centuries after the Muslim conquests, as the Islamic conquerors elaborated their beliefs in response to Jewish and Christian challenges.)    Crone, Wansbrough and Nevo argue that all the primary sources which exist are from 150–300 years after the events which they describe, and thus are chronologically far removed from those events.   ...The absence of any Islamic corroborating material for the first century of Islam has raised numerous questions as to the authenticity of the material provided by traditionalist sources.  Secular scholars point out that the earliest account of Muhammad's life by Ibn Ishaq was written about a century after Muhammad died and all later narratives by Islamic biographers contain far more details and embellishments about events which are entirely lacking in Ibn Ishaq's text.  

Quoting the Wikipedia with respect to problems with the variations in the text of the Qur'an it reads that:   In 1972, during the restoration of the Great Mosque of San'a, in Yemen, laborers stumbled upon a "paper grave" containing tens of thousands of fragments of parchment on which verses of the Qur'an were written.  Some of these fragments were believed to be the oldest Qur'anic texts yet found.  The European scholar Gerd R. Puin has studied these fragments and published some preliminary findings:

"My idea is that the Koran is a kind of cocktail of texts that were not all understood even at the time of Muhammad. Many of them may even be a hundred years older than Islam itself. Even within the Islamic traditions there is a huge body of contradictory information, including a significant Christian substrate; one can derive a whole Islamic anti-history from them if one wants. The Qur’an claims for itself that it is ‘mubeen,’ or clear, but if you look at it, you will notice that every fifth sentence or so simply doesn’t make sense. Many Muslims will tell you otherwise, of course, but the fact is that a fifth of the Qur’anic text is just incomprehensible. This is what has caused the traditional anxiety regarding translation. If the Qur’an is not comprehensible, if it can’t even be understood in Arabic, then it’s not translatable into any language. That is why Muslims are afraid. Since the Qur’an claims repeatedly to be clear but is not—there is an obvious and serious contradiction. Something else must be going on.” [29]

 

 

Quoting Corruption And Distortion In The Quran ,

 

Despite almighty Allah's vacuous promise to protect the originality of the Quran, it is substantially corrupted. And it is interesting that all Islamic Schools also accept this fact in the way that the Sunnis blame the Shias for corrupting the Koran, while the Shias blame the Sunni for the same. In reality, both Shia and Sunni books have narrations regarding corruption and editing of the Koran. Previously, I had written an article regarding corruptions in the Quran. Over recent the weeks, I have expanded my research on the Quranic corruptions and distortion and have compiled the outcome of my research into this E-book. I believe my research findings, as presented here, will end debates or counter-claims against the fact that the Koran has been corrupted and distorted to a significant extent from its original version. After this reading E-book, Muslims will ever be able to say that the current Quran is the pristine, uncorrupted, words of Allah as revealed to Prophet Muhammad.

 

 

Quoting the web article upon which the Dane Dahl Book The Pox Of Mohammed is presented where it is written: A’isha the favorite wife of the prophet, (who was still living when this act of religious sedition took place) says…according to a (Moslem) tradition recounted in al-Suynti, "… During the time of the prophet, the chapter of the Parties (now identified as chapter 33 – The Clans, which is actually the 103rd chapter in correct chronological order in the Koran) used to be two hundred verses (long)…When Uthman edited the Koran, only the current verses (73 of them) were recorded." (Note: the parenthetical remarks were added by historian Dane Dahl in an effort to clarify the text.)  Moslem tradition admits Caliph Uthman erased an astonishing 127 verses from this one single chapter. Today, thirteen centuries later, only God knows how many other verses and even entire chapters have been altered, rewritten or entirely erased from the Moslem bible, by this corrupt man and his band of friends and greedy, blood relatives.

Thus, while attempting to totally subjugate women, instead of permitting them to arise to their intended spiritual stature, the most important teachings on both the Laws, and a wife's place in manifesting the fulfillment of the Laws within a Divine Marriage, was removed.    Of the original feminine spiritual role within the marriage, and the removal of these ultra-important teachings in the Qur'an, Dane Dahl writes of the above noted Caliph Uthman:

Even Moslem tradition admits the Koran has been massively erased and revised. During this lengthy process the current version of the Koran lost its purity and much of its original message, but the author believes this was not always the case.   A key episode in this long-standing religious sedition (but not the first episode) took place approximately twenty years after Mohammed's death. It involved Caliph Uthman, the third successor to Mohammed. Uthman was assisted in his efforts by a cartel of corrupt friends and family members. He appointed these men to high office throughout the burgeoning Islamic empire. (see http://www.search.com/reference/Banu_Tamim )   Because of the important role Khadija the Pure played in founding the original religion of Islam, when women were first reviled and subjugated in the city of Medina, full scale civil war broke out more than once in early Moslem history. This strife almost destroyed the infant Arabian Desert religion called Islam. The first major rebellion involved another female prophetess named Sajah. Shortly after Mohammed died, Sajah the Prophetess emerged from the largest Arabian Desert tribe called the Banu Tamim.   Sajah the Prophetess challenged the corrupt all-male leadership who had seized control of the Moslem faith. After savage fighting, this brave woman and her devoted followers were ultimately defeated. Sajah went into hiding and her loyal supporters were killed. However, vast numbers of Arabs continued to hold secret views that were sympathetic to Prophetess Sajah; given the fact that the woman was still alive, Caliph Uthman and his political allies viewed her as a very real threat.   To fortify their position, these Arab rulers compiled a new official written version of the Koran, which up to that time, had been largely memorized and recited in oral tradition during ritual prayers. By that time most of the men who originally memorized the oral Koran from the mouth of the prophet were dead. Their passing created a crisis of leadership because varying interpretations of the Koran were emerging throughout parts of the Moslem empire. These competing versions of Islam threatened to split the faith into warring factions.   Compounding the problems Uthman faced, was the fact that illiteracy was rampant at the time of Mohammed; only a handful of precious Koranic manuscripts had been written down by the original companions of the prophet. These hand-written manuscripts existed in fragmentary pieces that were incomplete and often disagreed wth each other.  Under the guise of remedying these textual conflicts, Uthman and the men he allied himself with—massively rewrote the Koran. In the process, they deleted or changed everything that threatened their right to rule the Empire of Mohammed.  

 

In further quoting the Dane Dahl web site: quoting Dane Dahl's web site with respect to the verses of the Qur'an that support the modern terrorist teachings to kill those who are perceived to be the infidel: "...Historians tell us these terrorist teachings are part of a cluster of ferocious beliefs that were deliberately added to one specific part of the formerly peaceful and tolerant Koran.  These startling changes were made, decades after Islam was first founded in the Arabian city of Mecca. By the time of these changes, the original (and real) prophet of Islam was dead. Thereafter the religious headquarters was uprooted and moved to the city of Medina. Islam began changing; under new leadership it turned cruel and predatory.  In fact, historians also tell us Islam didn’t simply fall from the sky as a full-blown religion, but rather evolved from a persecuted sect of Jewish-Christians. The first Moslems in the city of Mecca were actually part of a larger group of Jesus’ followers called the Ebionites."    If this is true, and "...terrorist teachings are part of a cluster of ferocious beliefs that were deliberately added to one specific part of the formerly peaceful and tolerant Koran.  These startling changes were made, decades after Islam was first founded in the Arabian city of Mecca. By the time of these changes, the original (and real) prophet of Islam was dead -- then it is also true that every Muslim that fails to prove the Truth by virtue of making the Spiritual Journey to the Mecca that is not of this world, is guilty and has the blood of those slain in the name of these terrorist teachings on their hands.   Again, if it is true that every True Muslim by following the Path of Islam has the inherent power to enter the Spiritual Mecca that is not of this world, and prove the Truth by virtue of their own higher spiritual experiences and contact with the Divine, then the Judgment of those who have been slain in the name of Islam, will come upon all those who profess to be a Muslim.

 

It has been clearly documented that at the time of the collection of the Qur'an there were a number of differing texts. Four main versions became apparent, which co-existed for a considerable time, though they were not always tolerated.  Alfred Guillaume, perhaps the best-known and accepted Western scholar on Islam from the non-Islamic world, sketched this situation in his book "Islam", thus:
 

"Before an authorized version was established under the Caliph Uthman there were four rival editions in use. These have long since disappeared, but we are told that they differed from the authorized version, some containing more and some less than the latter. When men who had learned one version came into conflict with those who possessed a rival version it was feared that scr1ptural exegesis would pursue the course it had taken among Jews and Christians who at that time accused the one another of corrupting and falsifying the sacred text. Uthman then entrusted a commission, in which Zayd took a prominent place, with the task of preparing a text which everyone must accept. Only the men of Kufa refused the new edition, and their version was certainly extant as late as A.D. 1000. Uthman's edition to this day remains the authoritative word of God to Muslims. Nevertheless, even now variant readings, involving not only different reading of the vowels but also occasionally a different consonantal text, are recognized as of equal authority one with another. The old Kufic script in which these older Qur'an copies were originally written contained no indication of vowels, and so the consonants of verbs could be read as actives or passives, and, worse still, many of the consonants themselves could not be distinguished without the diacritical dots which were afterwards added, when and by whom we do not know....Originally considerable freedom prevailed, until a later generation insisted on uniformity but never entirely achieved it...

The arrangement of the text is arbitrary and haphazard....The Muslim world has not yet come to grips with the problem which Christian Europe faced after the Renaissance, but signs are not wanting that thoughtful Muslims are seeking a way out of the logical impasse....Until all the rival readings scattered in manuscripts and books not readily to be consulted have been collected on a scale comparable with the critical apparatus of the Bible, and until a trustworthy lexicon of the Qur'an has been compiled, details--many of great importance - will remain obscure." (A. Guillaume pp. 57-60).

"Without diacritical marks a word could be read active or passive and many consonants could not be distinguished without the diacritical dots which were added afterwards, when and by whom we do not know." ("Collection of the Qur'an" by John Burton).

 

 

 

 

 

That the above warning is correct -- and there is little consensus on the meaning of much of the Qur'an -- is demonstrated in the fact that one sect of Muslims will not only slaughter those of another sect, but have such disregard for each other, that they will blow up and destroy each others mosques.   Further, with respect to the above statement -- i.e., "If the Qur’an is not comprehensible, if it can’t even be understood in Arabic, then it’s not translatable into any language" -- Arabic was not itself a spiritual language -- and this is why the original New Covenant Gospels were written in Hebrew Characters (see Hebrew Characters ).   Which means that the Arabic language itself which was a common language of the people -- and was not based upon a Wholistic Spiritual Expression of the Soul which incorporated the Laws of Creation and all attributes thereof -- is itself flawed.   Unlike the Hebrew Characters which were used in the original Gospels, the religion of Islam did not exist among the Arabs prior to Mohammed -- and his revelations that were made to the Arab people, had no basis in a preceding spiritual teaching or language.   And in the same way that the Original Hebrew Characters could not be properly translated into the languages of the people, neither was Arabic a suitable language to invoke and initiate spiritual transformations in the reader.  

Unlike the Original Gospels, the Qur'an was not transmitted into human language by a spiritually awakened and transformed soul.   The disciples of Jesus who authored the original Gospels in Hebrew Characters, had themselves travailed through the process of spiritual transformation, and were themselves of an Anointed (Messiah/Christ) Mind.   Therefore, when they authored sacred scriptures in the spiritual language of Hebrew Characters, they were themselves in harmony with the Inner Kingdom within them, and all that they expressed was of a spiritual reality beyond the three-dimensional limitations of organic man.   The Qur'an, on the other hand, was not written by the hand of Mohammed, and the sayings were transmitted by being put to memory by men who were not themselves transformed, and were of an organic and carnal mindset.   Therefore, what was truly spiritual and transcended the lower vibrations of the earth, could not manifest in the individuals who transmitted the sayings of Mohammed.  

Whenever higher spiritual teachings are placed in the hands of untransformed carnal men, one of the first aspects of these higher teachings to be corrupted, and done away with, is the need to purify the body and organic mind with a strict vegetarian diet (see http://TheConsecratedLife.com ).   And because the Qur'an was transmitted by many people, we can observe direct confusion on the part of diet.   In the Hadith related by Yahya it states that Mohammed said: "Beware of meat.  It has addictiveness like the addictiveness of wine".   Yet, in many other places, the eating of dead animal flesh is portrayed as being good.    This same corruption is observed in the Gospels whereby in the oldest known complete copy of our Gospels which is called the Evangelion Da - Mepharresh, in it we find Yeshua/Jesus saying at Luke 21:34: "See that you do not make your minds heavy, to do this, never eat meat or drink wine."    That the sayings such as this was removed from the Gospels by the Gentiles, was because it is near impossible for carnal men who are ruled by their lower animal natures to maintain a vegetarian diet.    Carnal men who are themselves ruled over by their lower animal natures, need to consume the blood, fat and flesh of slain beasts.   That the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus were all vegetarian, is documented at http://Ebionite.com/vegetarian.htm .  

One of the most important elements of this equation that would be difficult for most people to understand, is seen in the warning of Peter preserved in the Homilies of his disciple Clement.   Jesus and his Ebionite Nazirene disciples understood that a seeker could insulate themselves from the influence of demons and earth-bound spirits, by depriving these discarnate spirits of a physical catalyst that enables these negative forces to gain entrance into the body strongly influence the mind of the person.   And this cleansing of the body and mind among the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus is demonstrated in the witness of  Epiphanius where he writes that "...They use Gospels. Eating meat is abominable to them. They consider water to have sacred properties... they often baptize themselves in water, summer and winter, for sanctification..." (Panarion, 19:28-30).   By removing the physical catalysts that the satanic forces in the earth use, the disciple is better able to insulate himself from these forces.   Thus, in the Homilies Peter explains:

"But the reason why the demons delight in entering into men's bodies is that, being disembodied spirits and having perverted desires after meat and sex, but not being able to partake of these due to being spirits, and wanting organs fitted for their enjoyment, they enter the bodies of men in order to gain organs with which to satisfy their lusts, both meat and sex."  

Peter further taught that we open the door to these demons and discarnate spirits when we eat dead flesh at the table of demons: "But you are still ignorant of this law, that everyone who worships demons or their idols, or sacrifices to them, or partakes with them of their table, shall become subject to them and receive all punishment from them, as being under wicked lords. And you who, on account of ignorance of this law, have been corrupted beside their altars, and have been satiated with food offered to them, have come under their power, and do not know you have been in every way injured in respect of your bodies. But you ought to know that the demons have no power over any one, unless first he be their table-companion; since not even their chief can do anything contrary to the law imposed upon them by God wherein the demons have no power over any one who does not worship them by being their table-companions in the eating of flesh.... But you, being ignorant of the foreordained law, are under the power of the chief of demons through evil deeds, wherefore you are polluted in body and soul, and in the present life you are tyrannized over by sufferings and demons.... If therefore, ye wish to be the vesture of the Divine Spirit,.... neither believe in idols, nor partake with them of the impure table...."

What Peter is stating is that the very presence of dead animals in the body opens the door for the vibration of death -- i.e., demons and discarnate spirits -- to bring the person under their demonic control.  It was for this reason in the Gospel of the Nazirenes that Jesus stated that those believers of the simple faith could not be admitted into the inner core of the New Covenant while still eating the flesh of slain beasts: "And again that one asked, If anyone comes to us who eats flesh and drinks strong drink, how shall we receive them? And Yeshua said to him, Let such a person abide in the outer court until they cleanse themselves from these grosser evils; for till they perceive, and repent of these, they are not fit to receive the higher mysteries."  What this is further teaching is the reality that those who eat meat cannot enter the Kingdom within, and cannot learn directly from God.

The fact that the verses of the Qur'an were transmitted by men of a spiritually unclean and defiled mind and body, means that even if they were sincere, their thoughts were manipulated by satanic forces and earth-bound discarnate spirits.   And with respect to the Qur'an, no man is commanded by God to kill others because they are an unbeliever.   The Satanic Verses of the Qur'an are (1) representations of the manipulations of the mind with respect to unclean and defiled men who attempted to put the sayings of Mohammed to memory; and are (2) interpolations by men who followed after Mohammed.   These Satanic Verses which call for, and require, Muslims to kill other men, not only represent a desecration of Islam -- but an abomination against the Holy Spirit and God -- i.e., the example of these Satanic Verses is seen in the words:  "Slay them wherever you find them...Idolatry is worse than carnage...Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God's religion reigns supreme." (Surah 2:190-) "Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it." (Surah 2:216) "Seek out your enemies relentlessly." (Surah 4:103-) "...make war on the leaders of unbelief...Make war on them: God will chastise them at your hands and humble them. He will grant you victory over them..." (Surah 9:12-) "It is He who has sent forth His apostle with guidance and the true Faith [Islam] to make it triumphant over all religions, however much the idolaters [non-Muslims] may dislike it." (Surah 9:31-) "If you do not fight, He will punish you sternly, and replace you by other men." (Surah 9:37-).   

When it is recognized that the judgment of a Jew, a Christian or a Muslim who brings disgrace upon the Name or Word of God, is tenfold worse than the unbelievers.   While this may offend many modern day Muslims, the very fact that Islam has connected itself to the teachings of Jesus, the Ebionite Nazirenes and TheWay, provokes question as to why there are radical differences that modern Muslims fail to explain.   Jesus in his teachings is much more the Prince of Peace, than is Islam which even resorts to blowing up Mosques that belong to other Muslim sects.   Where Jesus taught to turn the other cheek, and pray for those who persecute you, the corrupted teachings of Islam required the murder of those who did not believe or agree with your own understanding of the Qur'an.    Further, many of the teachings of Islam simply have no place in either a spiritual religion, and especially the Gospel teachings -- i.e., "Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it." (Surah 2:216) "Seek out your enemies relentlessly." (Surah 4:103) "...make war on the leaders of unbelief...Make war on them: God will chastise them at your hands and humble them. He will grant you victory over them..." (Surah 9:12).  These requirements are so adverse to the teachings of Jesus in the Gospels, that no rational thinking person could even begin to consider them emanating from the same source.   And in view of the fact that the claim has been made that Jesus was an Islamic Prophet, then these teachings with respect to the violence that is being perpetrated in the name of God, becomes an irreconcilable difference of greatest importance to those who call themselves Muslim.

In the Gospel accounts there is simply no acceptance of the statement: "Muhammad is God's apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another." (Surah 48:29).    Where Jesus requires his followers to turn the other cheek, the corrupted Qur'an states: “SLAY THEM wherever you find them. Drive them out of the places from which they drove you. Idolatry is more grievous than bloodshed” (Surah 2:191).

Those who attempt to defend Islam point out similar requirements that were made of the Jews.    Yet, the spiritual leaders of Judaism were wise enough to understand that such statements in the Old Testament were an allegory -- i.e., the words of Moses Maimonedes, who is one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, openly writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit.”   Thus, the inner core of Jewish authorities understood that the Torah is an allegory -- and that what the defenders of Islam attempted to read historically, was understood as part of what Peter called the Mystery Of The Books With The Power To Deceive.   

No spiritual man murders those who do not believe in the manner that they do.   Further, no spiritual man abuses and beats his wife -- i.e., "Men are the managers of the affairs of women … those you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them" (Surah 4:34).    Spiritual men are consumed with a desire to Unite and be At-One with God, manifest the Light before other men who are his brothers and sisters, bringing no harm to any other living being from the least to the greatest, and completing the Journey in TheWay. 

 

 

 

In the same way that the original objective of the Gospel was to free the people from the shackles of Judaism and restore the knowledge of TheWay, the original objective of Islam was to free the people from the shackles of Roman Christianity, and restore the original teachings of TheWay.   As presented in the above, the founding of the Gospel teachings and the founding of Islam, was carried out by the same group of souls who incarnated to free the lost prodigal sons and daughters from the shackles of what Paul portrayed as the god of this world.    The inner spiritual core of Islam learned how to enter the inner Kingdom which is portrayed as the cave -- which is a traditional way to allegorically 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).   

It is written of Mohammed that he frequently went to a cave in the desert three miles from Mecca, where he would spend months in prayer and meditation.  One morning, the angel Gabriel appeared to him and said: "Rise, for thou art the Prophet of God. Go forth and preach in the name of thy Lord. Your God is merciful."  A voice was heard - the voice of the Lord - addressed to the Prophet.  When he returned from the cave, it is foretold that Mohammed was filled with divine majesty.    On informing his wife of the vision he had, she said, "You are faithful and never utter an untruth. Therefore, you may obey the call and follow the voice."  It is said of Khadija that she was the first disciple to profess faith in the Prophet.  She became his disciple and the first follower of Islam.

When Mohammed speaks, as quoted in the above, and states the words that  "Gnosis is my capital..." (see above The Real Islam) -- what is being indicated by the symbol of the cave is not a physical cave in this world -- but rather, the inner Cave which is also portrayed as the inner reality where it is portrayed as the Lord coming and speaking to Elijah.   And in the same way that all Jews who make their body into a Living Temple can enter this Inner Cave (see Final Temple) -- and Jesus taught TheWay to enter the Inner Kingdom (see Inauguration Of The New Covenant) -- all true Muslims have the ability to enter this Inner Cave and meet with the True Prophet and dwell with God.   But because Judaism and Christianity had become corrupted and defiled, if Mohammed had merely acknowledged that he had fulfilled the vision of the prophets and the teachings of Jesjus within himself, the teachings of Islam would have been framed upon the same corruption that had befallen Christianity and Judaism.   The original Mohammad, therefore, brought forth what came to be the Koran or Qur'an, and he composed the sayings in the language and traditions of the people who he presented it to.   Like the Torah and all scriptures, many parts of it are allegory that portrays quasi-historical accounts or rituals 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 an allegorical manner that would be acceptable to carnal Arabs.   

The passage in the 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 Spiritual Mecca (or Spiritual Jerusalem) within -- rather than the Mecca or Jerusalem of this world -- and can only be found by a true Muslim which is defined as one who is totally dedicated and in absolute subjection 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.   

Perhaps a perfect example of the inherent innate spiritual abilities of man, is demonstrated in the case of the Jewish Mystic Isaac Luria (1534-1572), who was renowned as the greatest of the Jewish sages.   He was often referred to as “the Godly”.   It was said that at times, Elijah revealed himself to Isaac Luria in order to teach him the wisdom of the scriptures, and that every night his soul ascended to heaven, escorted by angels asking which heavenly academy he wanted to visit.  

In like manner, Rabbi Yisrael Ben Eliezer who came to be known by Chassidic Jews as the Baal Shem Tov (The Master of the Good Name), embraced the path of the Mystic seeking Union with God. During a soul-ascent to heaven, the Baal Shem Tov ascended to the heavenly abode of the Messiah and asked him: "Master when are you coming?"  Messiah answered, "When the wellsprings of your teachings shall spread outward."  In other words, what was revealed to Rabbi Eliezer was that Messiah cannot come until the teaching of the Inner Spiritual Torah has first reached all Jewish people, and then ultimately to the entire world.  According to Lubavitch teaching: "God has long been ready to bring Messiah and Messiah is anxious to come. Until now his path was obstructed by the imperfections in the world."  What this means is that it is the condition of the world, which hastens or delays the coming of the Messiah and the Kingdom of God.

It is clear that the man known as the Apostle Paul himself made a journey into the Kingdom where he writes that he was "caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor 12:4-5 NKJ - see Mystery).   In like manner, in the same way that Muslims believe that the historical Jesus was a man, and not God incarnate (see The Ten Words), the very fact that Jesus had the ability to unite with God and enter the Inner Kingdom, means that all Muslims acknowledge that this innate ability is true of all of mankind.   Meanwhile, Jesus said that the sin of the Jews was seen in the fact that, because they had thrown away what Jesus called the Key of Knowledge, that they no longer possessed the power and ability to enter the Kingdom -- i.e., "How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering" (Luke 11:52).   Which means that these same words must be asked of the modern-day leaders of the Jews, the clergy of the Christian Church, as well as every person who makes claim to be a True Muslim who is united to the Will of God.    And when Jesus said to Nicomedus that "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.  That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again" -- and then further explained that not only himself, but his disciples, also possessed the ability to enter the Kingdom and learn and witness the Truth when he again stated to Nicodemus: "...Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness.  If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?" (John 3:1-12 NKJ).   Take notice of the plurality of Jesus' words and witness: "...We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness."   

Once it is understood that men such as Isaac Luria, Jesus, Paul and the other Disciples were not so much the exception -- but rather, the innate potential of every man and woman who are portrayed as the lost prodigal sons and daughters -- then the whole structure of modern religious thought and lifestyle must be radically revised.     If it is true that by living a spiritual life dedicated to God and the seeking of the Inner Kingdom -- in the environment of what is known as the Divine Marriage -- that the person portrayed by author and historian Dane Dahl as "...the first and real prophet of Islam" was able to make the journey to what Islam portrays as the Distant Mosque in Spiritual Mecca, then what Muslim today can reject this crucial core teaching and requirement of Islam.   And if it is true, as outlined in the above, that the very spiritual essence of Islam is "...a science through which one can know how to travel into the presence of the Divine" -- and in the presence of the Divine (see The Real Islam), receive the Gnosis directly from The True Prophet that reveals all Spiritual Truths and Realities to the mind of the authentic Muslim -- then what excuse does any Muslim have for failing to make the Journey in TheWay to the Distant Mosque in the Spiritual Mecca that is not of this world?     

Based upon the documented fact that the exact same message that was revealed to  Rabbi Yisrael Ben Eliezer who came to be known by Chassidic Jews as the Baal Shem Tov (The Master of the Good Name) -- that during a soul-ascent into the Kingdom, the Baal Shem Tov ascended to the heavenly abode of the Messiah and asked him: "Master when are you coming?" And Messiah answered, "When the wellsprings of your teachings shall spread outward." -- and this same exact message that was preached by the disciples of Jesus when they taught that the "Kingdom of Heaven is at hand" -- and this same exact fact was revealed to myself -- then Islam is bringing judgment and condemnation upon itself for failing to teach this Great Truth.

The Brother Of Yeshua/Jesus: 2000 years ago I lived as Jacob who many call 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 Master Index:  The Index of Nazirene Ebionite web sites and the Original Teachings of TheWay  
 

Original Gospel Sacraments: The Sacraments that are practiced and observed in the Christian Churches today have very little in common with the Original Sacraments instituted by Jesus.   Without putting on the required Wedding Garment, and being nourished by the Eucharist of the Divine Manna that can only be imparted to the seeker/disciple by and in the direct Spiritual Presence of the Son of God while in the Kingdom, the believer will continue to dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the Far Country and Outer Darkness of Mind and Being -- unable to comprehend the Higher Mysteries of the Kingdom -- and unable to attain the subsequent stage of Birth that enables the seeker/disciple to gain entrance into the Kingdom, and inherit the Promise of Entering into Life.  
 

Know Thyself: Jesus declared in the Gospel of Thomas: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".   It is for this reason that the second-century Church Father Clement of Alexandria said that it is  “…the greatest of all lessons to know one's self.  For if one knows himself, he will know God; and knowing God, he will be made like God… and that man becomes God, since God so wills”.   When God, in the words of St. Nazianzen, no longer is an “object of wonder”, but rather an “object of desire” -- and we, desiring to be purified from the defilements of this world, make ourselves fit vessels for the Lord to indwell, the Spirit, according to St. Nazianzen, reveals to us our true nature, and the revelation of this manifest Sacred Knowledge makes “us like God; so that when we have thus become like Himself, God may, to use a bold expression, hold converse with us as Gods, being united to us, and that perhaps to the same extent as He already knows those who are known to Him”.  St. Nazianzen then writes that “the Divine Nature then is boundless and hard to understand” by those who are yet carnal and think as natural beings of this world.    
 

The Ten Words:  That restores the teachings of Jesus and TheWay to their original spiritual environment.  
 

An Inconvenient Truth: One of the most important articles that have been written and exist in our present time -- in spite of those who attempt to censor and inhibit the modern seeker from having access to the Truth and TheWay.   Written by an Original Author of the Gospels, this article reveals what modern authorities will at any cost, censor and suppress.   Why?   Because as counterfeit shepherds, they are carnal and totally earth-bound in their thinking.   Being carnal and spiritually disenfranchised, they don't at all understand -- or possess the knowledge of -- the Great Spiritual Truths revealed in this article.   
 

Reincarnation, The Key To Christianity: The only eyewitness account written by an Elder in the original Ebionite Community portraying the Death of Christianity -- The Religion of Jesus and the Original Teachings of TheWay.   Because the Emperor of Rome hunted down and murdered the Original Spiritual Christians and all those who opposed the corruption of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay, the Christian world itself has been cast into a Spiritual Diaspora from which it has yet to emerge.  
 

The Church Of The AntiChrist: The Apostle Paul predicted that the Church which portrays itself as Christian, will install the Anti-Christ as the leader of the Church, and the Christian world will worship Satan in place of God.   While the Christian world dwells under the deceptive belief that they freed themselves from the paganism of Rome in the Reformation, the leaders of the Reformation did not at all understand the reality of a purely Spiritual Religion where the objective was to be be in the world and not of it -- using the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge to gain entrance into the Kingdom while still in the body-vessel -- in many respects the reactionary dogma contrived by Martin Luther and the other leaders of the Reformation had the effect of further imprisoning the Church in the abyss of abject carnal ignorance.   
 

The Bible itself openly rejects and condemns the tenets of belief promoted by the Church.   What is demonstrated is the fact that the vast majority of Christians neither understand the Bible -- and those who do read it, do so through the filter of their dogma and beliefs.   re 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 and corrupted 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 wordsare to Christianity what the 10 Commandments were to Judaism -- i.e., the foundation from which every other aspect of the religion springs forth! These 10 words prove the Ebionites correct, and modern Christianity which is founded upon 4th century Roman doctrines to be in error.  These 10 words prove that without a return to the essence of Yeshua's original teachings, modern Christians are neither saved, nor do they have the salvation they erroneously believe they do.   
 

The Consecrated Life is the Path that leads to Wholeness -- and this Wholeness can only be brought about when the teachings of Yeshua/Jesus and TheWay becomes a mindset and lifestyle that develops the person and brings them to Completion.   In the parable of the prodigal son, the experiences in what is portrayed as the Far Country develops the son -- enables him to prevail and to rule over himself -- and it is this state of Completion within himself that permits him to return to the Edenic Kingdom of the Father.   Each and every person is presently evolving to this state of Completion and Wholeness in the Omega of Perfection, that will permit them to return to their True Source of Being.  
 

The Key Of Knowledge: When Jesus condemned the leaders of the Jews as blind guides, it was because they threw away the Key Of Knowledge.   In the fourth century of our Common Era, the Church of Rome in like manner threw away the Key Of Knowledge -- causing the Christian world to become lost and wandering in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of Mind and Being.    
 

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.  
 

Divine Strategery: How God Fools Mankind - Keeping Him Ignorant Of The Truth: Strategery has become synonymous with when what is portrayed as simple, simpleminded, or even self-evident, is able to dupe and thwart an opposing force that perceives itself to be either superior, or to suppose they know the answers.   Divine Strategery is how God fools all the religious leaders of this world who think they doctrinally know God -- all the would-be teachers and philosophers of this world who think they Know Truth -- all the Atheists and those who criticize and denounce the existence of God by virtue of their limited perception and understanding -- and all the people in this world who think they understand the purpose of life and the world in which we presently dwell.  As prodigal sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, if the people in this life knew the answers, then the learning experience of God's SchoolHouse of this world would not effectively evolve us to become true Brothers and Sisters of our Elder Brother Yeshua/Jesus.  Therefore, in order to insure that each of us is immersed in the necessary learning experience that this life offers, all people are equally fooled into thinking they know, in order for them to be manipulated into embracing a higher agenda that is beyond their ability to even imagine.   Thus, Divine Strategery!!!

 
 
 

Reincarnation - The Key To Christianity And The The Pre-Existent Soul of Mankind: Jesus taught the reality of the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes. The Church adheres to the doctrine and theology of a Circus Prostitute and a Roman Emperor who maintained absolute control over what Christians were permitted to believe! Christians continue to cling to the theology of this Circus Prostitute today - rejecting the teachings of Jesus, while adhering to the doctrines of Pagan Rome. The mass confusion of an uncountable number of sects today, is the direct result of the void which was brought about when this foundational concept was removed from both the Bible, as well as Christian doctrine. The doctrinal quagmire which was brought about with the removal of this foundational teaching, obstructs Christians growth and maturity beyond the entry-level simple faith. Because they adhere to the corrupted doctrines of men, modern Christians can't inherit the Biblical Promise of entering the Kingdom and Life.

 
 

It was said of the Church Father Origen by St. Gregory of Nyssa that he was “the prince of Christian learning in the Third Century” -- and the Encyclopedia Britannica calls him “…the most prominent of all the church fathers”.  But how did he become the man that St. Jerome considered to be “the greatest teacher of the Church after the Apostles”?   According to the soul who lived as Origen, he had previously lived as the disciple and scribe of Jacob who people call James, who was the Brother of Jesus.   And from that life with Jacob, he learned to write scriptures in Hebrew Characters, and he worked on the original source scriptures which has since come to be called the New Testament scriptures of the Bible.   On his web site, Emmanuel Pohorecki reveals not only the accounts of the many lifetimes that he has lived, but also his own journey into the presence of his soul-self -- i.e., his true self who is the Being of Light.   And once again Emmanuel has demonstrated that you don't need to physically die to communicate with, and enter into the presence of your soul-self who is the Being of Light in the Near Death Experience.   And in his soon to be completed article on the Journey of the Soul and Visions from his Higher Self, he will write about what his soul-self has taught him while in the Realm of Souls.   Emmanuel provides other important insights in man's higher reality with his account of his life with Fr. Francis, as a Native American, and as one of the Constitutional Founding Fathers of the United States.  
 

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 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 Suppressed Teachings On Children: "And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them, and said, Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven" (Mat 18: 2-3).  Because the important teachings on children were removed from the Gospels, it remains virtually impossible for the modern believer to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom  
 

What Happened To Zackarias? Because the mainstream of Christians can't even begin to answer the question as to what happened to Zackarias?  It remains impossible for them to understand the true reality of the scriptures -- or why the religion of the pre-Nicene Church Fathers was very different than the dogma preached from the pulpits today.   And while the missing account of Zackarias can be easily proven today, the fact that the modern Christians ignores the facts and the truth has had the effect of disenfranchising them from the Kingdom they have been commanded to seek out.  
 

Things Christians Never Tell Jews About The New Testament: Many Jews have been misinformed when they have been warned by Christians that if they don't believe and come to Jesus, they will not inherit salvation and eternal life. Part of this is an error of ignorance -- i.e., because their Christian forefathers were adulterous, and defiled their own covenant with the Lord in the manner of the Jews when they worshiped other gods, they have yet to recover from their spiritual temple being plundered and ravished by the unclean and dark forces of this world. They therefore have lost their own way, and no longer can come into the Presence of the Lord. The Facts: Both Christians and the Jews they have persecuted, condemned, and even murdered over the past two thousand years will be shocked by what they will read herein! What they will learn is a fact that has long confused many sincere students of the New Testament scriptures -- scriptures which are very Jewish in origin -- and because of their very mystical Jewish essence, has long confounded the non-Jews who have championed the Gospel message. To their own undoing, most Christians ignore their own theologians and biblical scholars who have attempted to warn them that the scriptures are paradoxical -- i.e., that in all theological positions there exists two lines of seemingly opposite and conflicting truths presented to the reader -- and those who accept one truth while ignoring the other, will themselves fall into heresy by falling into grave sectarian error with respect to the true meaning of the Gospel message. Thus, those who maintain that there is no salvation apart from belief in the historical Jesus in the manner of modern Christian doctrine, have themselves fallen into the trap of heresy that the very first followers of Jesus warned believers not to fall into! And while it is true that these sectarian vicars of the Church can prove their position by using the scriptures, it is further true that their own scriptures also contain another line of truth that presents an entirely different picture than what the Church has portrayed to the world -- a picture where the opposite is also true.  
 

The Sower And The Seed: Unless you become the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower And The Seed, it will remain impossible for you to comprehend the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel and the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom of God.  
 

The Secret Doctrine Of Christianity: 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. 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 for us to recognize that such an allegation would be unheard of in our present time.  
 

The Enigma Of The Shepherd Of Hermas: Even though it is said of the Shepherd of Hermas that it was "...the most popular books, if not the most popular book, in the Christian Church during the second, third, and fourth centuries...", it remains unknown to the modern Church. Why? Why was the book that is representative of the core Gospel of the earliest Church, no longer is use today? Because while Hermas reflected the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay, it would be deemed heresy by the modern Church. And when rightly understood, the fact of the matter is that it is impossible for the modern believer, critic, biblical expert or scholar to in any manner understand the message that Hermas bears. Which means that if the Shepherd of Hermas was indeed the most popular scripture in the Gentile Church over the first three centuries, then it can rightly be stated that the modern Church has virtually nothing in common with the pre-Nicene Gentile Church.  
 

Divine Manna:  "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:8-17).  "My People Are Destroyed For Lack Of Knowledge Because You Have Rejected Knowledge, I Reject You..." (Hosea 4:6).   "Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie" (Rev 22:14).  "Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit" (1 Thes 4:8 NIV)  
 

Gospel Of Thomas:  These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.  And he said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death."  Jesus said, "Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All."  
 

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.  
 

What was the Mysteries of the Gospel that Jesus revealed only to the inner core of disciples?   While teaching the multitude of the people only in parables?    "And the disciples came and said to Him, Why do You speak to them in parables? He answered and said to them, Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given" (Matt 13:10-11 NKJ).   As someone who was there, at the time, what is presented in this article is not only far beyond the understanding of any book that you could read, or teacher you could seek out.   what is presented in this article will force you to re-evaluate everything that you thought you knew about both yourself, and the very purpose of life as you think you understand it.   And even more revealing than the three major lies of Judaism, Christianity and Islam that inhibits the people from understanding the foundational essence of all three religions, is an examination of both the lies and profound truths of the emerging scientific world which is for the most part ignored by our cultural icons, because the findings of modern quantum physics confirms the visionary truths of the Mystics which the religious and intellectual worlds have long censored from the common understanding.   
 

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?  
 

Light Of Yeshua: The Essence of Messianic Judaism and being Spiritually Torah Observant.  Many Messianic Jews attempt to embrace traditional Christian doctrine with a Jewish facade in an attempt to convert other Jews to a quasi-form of Jewish-Christianity with a Pagan foundation. In view of the fact that the original followers of Yeshua are historically described as “…rejected from one religion as apostates, and from the other as heretics” (Gibbon: Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, v.1, p.416), this conversion to Jewish-Christianity would be a grave error.  
 

The Cross And The Seat Belt: The only mean by which mankind can move beyond his present limitations and struggles with the unknown, is to gain access to the Source of what he observes and interacts with in the world which is in what the mystic and scientist affirm as being the (Etheric) Field that surrounds all matter that we observe with our physical senses.   But to accomplish this, man must develop ways to effectively use his suppressed Intuitive spheres of mind.   Which means that to even begin to tap into the unseen Source, we must move beyond our traditional behaviors, mindset and perception of reality, and begin to embrace untraditional ways that permit the development and use of our suppressed Intuitive facilities of mind.   If what man presently portrays as accidents, can indeed be perceived prior to the event taking place -- and thus, be avoided -- then we will have eliminated the massive suffering and even death that is the result of these episodes of human existence.   And therefore, if the witness of both the Mystic and the emerging scientific evidence is true -- and reality must he sought in the unseen (Etheric) Field as the Source of all events that transpire -- then it becomes imperative for man to begin to develop and evolve those Intuitive spheres of mind that has been abandoned and left atrophied by the linear-only elements of our modern culture.  
 

How Did Jesus Become The Son Of God It is a widely accepted doctrine among Christians today that the disciples and Ebionite Nazirene followers did not comprehend the true nature of Jesus, because they did not proclaim that he was God -- as did the later Gentile converts.   Yet, just the opposite is true -- i.e., the vast majority of Romans and Greeks were too pagan and heathen in their thinking and mindset, to understand the higher spiritual concepts that Jesus and his disciples revealed to mankind.   Even today the problem remains with respect to our inability to understand why Jesus was different than we are. Because Christians cling to the doctrines of Rome, they are unable to answer many important foundational questions that would permit their thinking to evolve beyond what Paul portrayed as the entry-level doctrines of the simple faith that are elementary in their understanding. And while Paul warns that the "natural" (organic) mind of man is incapable of understanding the higher reality of the soul and the Inner Kingdom  -- warning that committed and baptized believers will reject the Mysteries of God as utter "foolishness" -- yet, the modern Church to their own destruction continues to ignore this all-important warning. What enabled Jesus to perform miracles? What enabled him to be able to communicate with the Father? Surely, we conclude, he could not have been a normal man. Therefore, we arrive at the only possible answer from our very limited perspective and conclude that the Jewish disciples and earliest followers of Jesus must have been wrong, and he had to have been God to know all that he knew, and be able to do all that he did. Thus, the flaw in the thinking of the Church is in their inability to envision and comprehend the manner in which mankind grows and evolves to a state of spiritual maturity -- how man, the prodigal son, who was created in the image and likeness of God, his Heavenly Father, begins to take on all the attributes of his Creator and Parent. In not understanding the process by which each of us embraces our eventual destiny, we worship instead of imitating the pattern that Yeshua/Jesus provided for all the prodigal sons and daughters of the Most High to follow.  
 

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.
