Where are all the Christians?

by Suba

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God". John 1:1

Let it not be mistaken; This is a paper that has nothing new to be said, only old words realized in a different way. I disclaim any responsibility, and or recognition for what is here said. Let me first say that I apology for any offence that might come about from this writing. It is only that the Soul from this being Wills these Words from me. Something beyond what one would call the self, is directing me to put the Words of the Great Teacher in a clearer format. So with nothing else to say, let us begin

For many years now I have fought against what the Church claims as the way. For what purpose is there in such a system that takes mans/women's beauty away. Sinners, is that what the newborn child is; A Sinner? What ever the case, the fact is, is that after being in such a position where I hated the Church and all that it stood for, I was given an opportunity to see the words spoken in a different light. I came to understand it was not so much that Jesus himself was important, but the principle of Christ that He lived up to. For what is the Christ, but the true name of the Logos, or "The One That Liveth The Word". For if it was Jesus that was important, then why did he come to serve and not rule. He was the prophesied One, for the stars proclaimed his coming. The Magi, those from the East came to give respect and to bear witness to this child who would one day bring the light unto the world

It is not readily known what His early years were like. For some how, One of the Greatest humans to have been here on this Earth has no recorded youth? Yet, if he was as important as what Three Wise Men took him as, then one could bet his younger years were spent learning what his destiny has for him in store. Even more so, as in all things there is a symbolic meaning rapped around the literal meaning. So what did the Magi bring? Gold that brings wealth, as well as it being a sign of The Spirit realized. Frankincense the masculine form of Creation, and Myrrh the feminine form of Creation. In other words, each of the Magi represented His first true initiation unto life. What then is it saying, but the very birth of the Christ within us, represents the Harmony between the two opposites; The Philosophers Gold

So the Great question I always ask myself is, "What was his mission?" Then it is said, "And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the Kingdom of Heaven suffered violence, and the violent took it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesized until John." Matthew 11:12-13. " For the Son of Man is come to save what was lost". Matthew 18:11. What was lost? What had to be taken by violence? Was it that the Kingdom which was within us all had been lost to all these illusions, and that it is the way which is taught by all the Great Teachers that shows us back unto the Garden. For by violence, it is the fool reaching in the darkness of the mind, while the daemons of the desires, and the lust of hell block us from the light; The Earth blocking the Sun from the Moon (Lunar eclipse), or in other words the desires of the flesh blocking the light of the Sun from the Soul. So then what, "If Thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as with the bright shinning of a candle doth give Thee light." Luke 11:36 "As many as received Him to them gave he power to becomes Son (and Daughters) of God". John 1:12. For what was his purpose but, "The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us". John 1:14. So for the west there was no more blindly searching for a way, or to believe in some force of God, a being in some great place outside of us. For God is within us, we are all the Children of God, and in that we are all Gods. "It is Finished". John 19:30

"For there is no-thing hid which shall not be manifested, neither was anything kept secret, but that it should come abroad." Mark 4:22. All traditions have their own light that shines forth through the darkness. For all true paths bring us to the source from whence all things evolve, and it just so happens that Jesus was the embodiment of the way for many who believe. In saying, this paper is writen to show what it takes to be a true Christian, at least that is, according to the words written down in the books that we have in the Bible To-day. So, in order that I may not be condemned by your judgments, I will quote the Great Teachers Words him self. Amen…

Let me put in a side note: Amen; What is this word that we so readily apply to the end of our prayers? Where does its roots come from? It is said, that it is derived from the verse in Psalms 1:4, "The ungodly are not so". If we are to read the rest of the Psalm, we will see that it is a blessing to those who walk in the way of righteousness and a curse to those who walk in the way of the wicked. What is that, let us say the Godly way is the way of beauty, of life, love, and creation, while the way of the wicked is the way of darkness, of hate, and the dissolution of creation. That is saying not death, for death is a part of life, but that it represents chaos from which form is manifested. What are the letters used in Amen. Aleph, Mem, Nun; sometimes completely spelling it out, one would add another Aleph. Which in some ways has correspondences to the Tetragrammaton, or in other words, The Great Four letter name of God. Aleph is the seed, that which is before the beginning, before the Bereshith, the first word in the Bible. It is the Air, the breath of life, and the force that Unites all things. The Mem is the Waters of life, it is the Waters that were separated from the beginning of time, and it is the unconscious plains, the Goddess in all Her Glory; Virgin Mary, or Sophia to give Her a Christian Name. It is the dreams that create form and in that, interaction. It is the waters that allow life to begin, and it is the beginning spore of the scientist and their amebas from which we have come to evolve from. The second Aleph is the glue, which holds all the Elements together, it is the Voice of the Realized fool, it is the Word speaking the Truth. As for the Last letter, it is Nun. What is the Nun but the fish that swims within the waters of life, it is Piscean age that we are in, it is the Symbol from which most have no idea where it comes from, and in that they are resorting back unto the Idolatry of the past. So in concluding, it is the representation of the beginning elements in their most basic form, it is the finest Air which some have come to call Fire, it is Water, the baser Air, and the Nun which is the Physical form of water, or in other words, the Earthly form of water. It is a Mantra that is supposed to be vibrated; for in vibrating its different frequencies, the Words of ones Prayers are then carried out unto the Universe. It is a Protection that can be vibrated around ones self, keeping the Soul from being confounded by Chaos and all its energies. So what is Amen, But the Om to the West. It is the Vibration of both the Feminine Energies of Life; Aleph and Mem, and the Masculine Energies of Life; Aleph and Nun. For it is the Man that comes out of the Women in creation, while it is the Women that comes out of the Man in Spirit. What is the Rib, But the form that holds up creation, it is that which keeps creation from falling down upon its self; or in Man, that which keeps the body from deflating. So enough, let us begin

The following is quoted from Matthew chapter 5:

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. Blessed for they that mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled. Blessed are the peace makers, for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven". What are these hinting at; poor, Mourning, hunger, meek, mercy, peaceful, righteous; All the qualities which are looked upon as weak in To-days society. For as for the poor in spirit, "For everyone that has forsaken houses, brethren or sisters, or fathers, or mothers, or wife, or children, for my names sake, shall receive a hundred fold, and shall inherit ever lasting life." Matthew 19:29. So what is this saying, are we to abandon all that we have, leaving behind the innocent children, and the elderly while we hunt for the Christos; for Enlightenment. No; For Instead it is saying, that blessed are they who lose these things because they follow in the way, for those things shall leave you because of it. For it is true, that the closer one comes to the truth, the more that the illusions will disappear and with that, those that keep you to it. For they will feel uncomfortable, and often times think you are mocking them, as they believe you to be egotistical, when in fact you are simply trying to help them the best way that you know how. It is to bad, for the fear of change and the loss of comfort shall truly be the separator between you and others

As for the Meek and the Peacemakers; are they not the Children of God; Loving and Caring. Do they go out and kill, or do they give life? "In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of Man." John 1:4 And for those who do hunger and Thirst for Righteousness and are Merciful, "For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also Forgive you. But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." Matthew 6:14-15. And it is said, "How oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times? Jesus said unto him, 'I say not unto thee, until seven times: but until seventy times seven." Matthew 18:21-23. And as for the pure of heart, " Verily I say unto you, except ye convert and become as little children, yea shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven." Matthew 18:3 What else does it say, are not the pure of heart to see God. Has it changed from the Old Testament, the time from which man could not look upon God. Is it now, that purity is acquirable, and in that, we now have the ability to see God truly in all things? Who knows but the Innocent?

So let us go on, "Whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of judgment." Matthew 5:22. "Whosoever looketh on a women(or man) to lust after her (him), hath committed adultery." Matthew 5:28. "Whosoever shall put away his wife(husband) saving for the cause of fornication causeth her (him) to commit adultery." Matthew 5:32 "Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black". Matthew 5:36. "Resist not evil, but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also." Matthew 5:39. "Give to him that asketh thee, turn not thou away." Matthew 5:42. "Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despiteful use you, and persecute you." Matthew 5:44. "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect." Matthew 5:48

It is often here when people agree with some things and not with others. They say, "Let us do this because it serves our purpose; but as for the other, 'what good does it do for us?" Sometimes we would think that there is no way that a human can act in such ways. Yet, what true excuse is there; Has it not been done already. For where does it say a Christian can do this and not that? It is as if by your laws you make void the laws of the Bible. You either follow all the laws to be calling yourself a Christian, or you walk your own path; for is it not said, "IF any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophesy, God shall take away his part, out of the book of Life." Revelations 22:19. So what else is said

"Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them, otherwise you have no reward." Matthew 6:1. For what good are alms if it comes not from the heart, but from the ego. For if they did come from the heart then, "Thou doest alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men, but when thou doest alms, let not thou left hand know what thy right hand doeth, that thine alms may be in secret." Matthew 6:2-4. "When thou prayest, thou shalt not be a the hypocrites are, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of man. When thou prayest, enter into thy closet and when thou shut thy door, pray to the Father which is in secret, and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly." Matthew 6:5-6. "When thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face, that thou appear not unto men to fast." Matthew 6:17-18. Being spiritual is not a contest, it is not something to flaunt or show off how pure one is. "All their works they do for to be seen by men; they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, and love the uppermost rooms at feast, and the chief seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets, and to be called Rabbi (Father)." Matthew 23:3-7. "But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant." Matthew 23:11. So what is this entirely saying. These practices are suppose to help humble us, suppose to help us see that we are not the ruler but the servants of life. That instead of being the King of Creation, we are the acting channels for which creation can unfold. It is not a game to be played, or some mask to put on once a week. Being a Christian is a miracle, it is a blessing to the earth. For they harm no-thing, they are one with the earth, as with all thing. They are not sinners, but ones who have striven away from sin. Fail not to see that which is to see. Fail not to hear that which there is to hear. For the words have been spoken, and so it is…

"Lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal." Matthew 6:20. "For where your treasure is, there will be your heart also." Matthew 6:21. "The light of the body is the eye; if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light." Matthew 6:22. "No man can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one, and love the other, or else he will hold to one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and Mammon." Matthew 6:24. Who is Mammon? Is he not the god of money, greed, luxury, societies toys, etc… Is this really what it is saying, that we should treasure things of lasting value; honor, chastity, meekness, humbleness, love, benevolence, charity, and many other things. Qualities of the Heavens, which bring the Kingdom of Heaven here on Earth. "Behold, The Kingdom of God is within you." Luke 17:21. And so it is, that the only way to keep the body full of light, is to keep thine eye single and focused or else, "If thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness." Matthew 6:23

"Take no thought saying, 'what shall we eat, or what shall we drink, or where withal shall we be clothed?" Matthew 6:31. "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33. "Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for things of its self." Matthew 6:34. "The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully. And he thought within himself, saying, 'what shall I do, because I have no room to store my fruit.' And he said, 'this will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater, and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.' And I will say to my soul, ' Soul thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine rest, eat, drink, and be merry.' But God said unto him, 'Thou fool, this night, thy soul shall be required of thee. Then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided." Luke 12:16-20. Yet, it is asked how that one could act other wise, when they have children, a house, bills, etc.. "Woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! For there be greater distress in the land, and wrath upon the people." Luke 21:23. For it is a sin in these coming times to bring in a child, into a world without means to support, and means to bring up a child in the good way. Yet, how many are there who claim the ability, and then not stand up to their word within the mind. Curse are they for their loins sake. For the child's acts are under the parents karma until they grow of age.

These time are like, "A certain king which made a marriage feast for his son, and sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding; and they would not come. Again he sent forth his servants to call them saying, ' Tell them which are bidden, behold I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fattling are killed and all things are ready; come unto the marriage.' But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise. And the rest took his servants and entreated them spitefully and slew them. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth; and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murders, and burned up their city." Matthew 22:1-13. "Watch therefore, for ye know not what hour the Lord doth cometh." Matthew 24:42. So be weary, and be true to those things that speak the truth. For the true test are yet to come; be the stars our witness, the times are here…

"Judge not, that ye be not judged." Matthew 7:1. "Why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brothers eye, but considereth not the beam that is in thine own eye. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thy own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote from thy brothers eye." Matthew 7:3-5. How easy it is to see others faults and not our own. " The scribes and the Pharisees brought unto him a women taken in adultery; and when they has set her in his mists they say unto him, 'Master, this woman was taken in adultery in the very act. Now Moses in the Law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?' This they said, tempting him that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down and with his finger wrote on the ground. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, ' He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.' And again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convince by their own conscience, went out one by one." John 8:3-9. "Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, do ye even so to them." Matthew 7:12

"Therefore enter ye in at the strait gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat. Because strait is the gate and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." Matthew 7:13-14. "For many will say unto me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesized in Thy Name? And in Thy Name have cast out many devils, And in Thy Name done many wonderful works.' And then will I profess unto them, ' I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work inequity." Matthew 7:14. "So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple." Luke 14:33. For "The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man hath not where to lay his head." Matthew 8:20 "Follow Me, and let the dead bury the dead." Matthew 8:22. For it is said, "That if ones life simply evolves around only the physical manifestation of the being, then all though one is living, they are already dead." For what purpose is there, if the sum of what we are, is going to die with this vehicle?

"Neither do men put new wine into old bottles; else the bottle break, and the wine runneth out and they both perish: but they put new wine into new bottles and both are preserved." Matthew 9:17. What point is there in filling the mind with good words, when the heart is corrupt; first anew thine heart, then the good words shall be preserved. It is not easy to let go of what society programs us to believe, in fact it is down right impossible. Yet, "He that findeth his life shall lose it, and he that loseth his life for my names sake shall find it." Matthew 10:39. "He that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me." Matthew 10:38. It is to be remember that Christ is the word, or the path to enlightenment, and that the cross is our illusions, our attachments, our fears, and all those things that block us from the truth. It is taking the elements and putting them upon our backs. It's unchaining ourselves from society, greed, and drunkenness; sacrificing ourselves for others, while knowing in truth it is for ourselves: For we all are one in Christ. It is to be pointed out that it is said, "Take up your cross." If what is believe that Jesus died for our sins, then there would be no need for our own cross. Yet, more so then not, his sacrifice was a literal occurrence rapped within a symbolic parable that shows the aspiring Christian what they must do. There is no justification for our sins, there is no one else that takes upon themselves our Karmic debt. It is only ourselves that will on judgment day, have to atone for all that we did. Which by the way, the Judgement has already occurred many times over

"Whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows saying, 'We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced, we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamentated." Matthew 11:16-17. Do you see the Son of Man in need of your songs, or your pity. For it is the Wise that step away from the lies that man has created and veiled behind Satan's image. For "Wisdom is justified of her children." Matthew 11:19. "I thank Thee O Father, Lord of the Heavens and the Earth, that Thou has hid these things from the wise and prudent and hast revealed them unto babes." Matthew 11:25. "Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:29-30. " Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves." Matthew 10:16. So then, how is one to be converted? "For this peoples heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing and their eyes they have closed, lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears and should understand with their hearts, and should be converted, and I should heal them." Matthew 13:15. To be converted is to understand in the heart, to see with the spirit, and to hear with the soul; for only then can one repent their sins; for repentance is to do no more. What profit is it to repent, if as you leave the altar, you go back to your self same actions. "When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and finding none. Then he saith, ' I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked then himself; and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of the man is worse then the first." Matthew 12:43-45. "The parable of the Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field, but while he sleepted, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought for fruit, then appeared the tares also." Matthew 13:24-26. "Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, 'Nay, least while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them." Matthew 13:28-29. For man is the field, and the spirit soweth good seed into us, yet the cares of our way of life, soweth those things that choke out the good seeds. Let them grow side by side till maturity, as when they bear there fruit together; then when it is time, take the tares away and burn them, and as for the wheat, gather them up as one, threshing away the drossness to bring forth their beauty. For in the beginning one will be unable to differentiate what is wheat and what is weeds. For in the garden, only as one grows in wisdom, does the farmer learn what a weed is and what is not; for the weed at times appears to be a beautiful flower. It first appears to be a beautiful thing, yet underneath the soil, it taketh all that is good away. So, be weary and nurture those things that are good within thyself, while covering all grounds around ones seeds, so that the weeds have no room to grow. "Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sudducess." Matthew 16:6. For "Even so, every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit." Matthew 7:17

"There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country. And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandman, that they might receive the fruit of it. And the husbandmen took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stones another. Again he sent other servants more then the first, and they did unto them likewise. But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, 'they will reverence my son', but when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, 'This is the heir, come let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.' And they caught him, and casted him out of the vineyard and slew him. When the Lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, he will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen.: Matthew 21:33-34. For why is it, that this is how it has become again. The "Blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into a ditch. For ye shut up the Kingdom if Heaven against men. For ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. for ye devour widows houses, and for a pretence make long prayers. For ye compass sea, and land to make one proselyte(one christian), and when he is made, ye make him two fold more the child of hell then yourselves." Matthew 23:13-25. "For ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of exortion and excess. Cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also." Matthew 23:25-26. "For ye are like unto whiten sepultures which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness." Matthew 23:27. Has the church once again become as thus, is it for the honor of man that our churches stand, is God now simply a word used to amplify our egos. O how simple and true the words Jesus spoke, like flowers awaiting to bloom. While spoken from your mouths, become like daggers killing all that hear and see. "Then shall ye begin to say, 'We have eaten and drunk in Thy presence, and Thou hast taught in our streets', but he shall say, 'I tell you, I know you not whence ye are, depart from me all ye workers of inequity." Luke 13:26-28. For who are they, "This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouths, and honoreth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me." Matthew 15:8. "For why call me Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say." Luke 6:46. "For blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it." Luke 11:28. Yet, why is this, that very few are able to uphold this? "For how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter forth into the Kingdom of God." Mark 10:24. As with sheep, people will follow where they believe to be good pasture. So know that, "My House shall be called the House of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves." Matthew 21:13. So know this as truth, "Whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased, and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted." Matthew 23:12

"One came and said unto him, 'Good Master, what good things shall I do, that I may have eternal life?' If thou wilt enter unto life, keep the commandments. Thou shalt not murder, thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness, honor thy father and thy mother, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.' The young man saith unto him, ' All these things have I kept, what lack I yet?' If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give it to the poor, and thou shalt have treasures in Heaven: and come and follow me." Matthew 19:16-21. For it seems that in these times, only a few will go out in search of the truth. "If a man have an hundred sheep and one of them be gone astray, doth not he leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray. For he rejoiceth more of that one sheep, then of the ninety and nine which went not astray." Matthew 18:12-13. And all the rest will ask why this is so, "They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick." Matthew 9:12. For what help is there, if those who are in need, believe that they are not sick

Going off in one of my tangent, what is the one thing that most other religion have that Christianity To-day lacks? The theorems of Reincarnation. The above chapter is about the one real hint that I have been able to find, which show that the cult of the Nazarenes believe in it. For what is it saying, that if one complies with the commandments, it will put one in good standings for the next life. In other words, if one desire eternal life, or continuously coming back unto life, then at the least follow an honorable code in order to be reborn in a karmatically good position. Otherwise, if one desires to break the cycle, to leave this place and go unto the heavens, where the treasures of Heaven resides. Then one is to let go of all possessions, of all attachments, and follow in the foot steps of the Christ; becoming Christ. For if one is to leave, one must let go. My theory, take in mind, it is only a theory, why there is no writings in the bible, yet in numerous other Christian texts hardly available to the public, is that it takes the power away from the church. Why is this, for it is reincarnation that puts the responsibility upon each being, that they must find the balance of their Karma, and in that complete their own destiny. Yet, some how down the line, the church felt it conflicted with the Savior idea, and that it shows that Jesus did not so much die for our sins in a literal since, but in a symbolic one only. For it we who are to become like our Father in Heaven who is perfect, who here stands to say that that is possible in only one life. That all the things in this world are experience and found to be worthless, and in that allows the being to let it go. Why is the child born dead, or maimed, or sick. Why is there some people who just have a bad start, and a bad finish? Why are there countries that starve, and are at war, and there be people born therein? Where is the kindness and the love of God, if this is the only life. For what purpose is that life. Going on this argument, how more just is it that each person according to their past merit, is put into a position the next life, to balance out their debts. What about nature, is it the tree which by its seeds, comes to be born again. What of John the Baptist, and Jesus, when ask if they were Elias come again, or that the ruler thought Jesus was John the Baptist come again for vengeance. Or what of the second coming, do these not at the least show there is the possibility of returning? What of all those children born in some distant place, and they having the ability to remember and speak other languages, and have memories of other places. Lets be serious, if there was reincarnation, then we would not need the church to forgive us, but only ourselves to forgive ourselves

It is these times that the Christ shall come to judge us; The Word. "He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." For even those who have not the strength to let go, even them who simply are true unto the word, and live at harmony with all things; even they as the cycle ends to begin again, they will reap the benefits and return. For know this, "If ye were of the world, the world would love his own; but because ye are not of the world, therefore the world hateth you." John 15:19. Taking in mind, the world represents our fabricate copy of the earth, and not the Earth or the Mother(Mary if you want me to speak in Christian terms.) its self. "They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you, will think that he doest God service." John 16:2. Always stay true to the word, follow the Ten Commandments, study, pray, meditate, and give thanks for all things. Be as the poor lady, "and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury, and he saw a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites, and he said, 'Of a truth, I say unto you, that this poor widow has cast more then them all." Luke 21:1-2

"The King say unto them on his right hand, 'Come ye blessed of my father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was a hunger and ye gave me meat, I was thirsty and ye have me drink, I was a stranger and you took me in. Naked and ye clothed me. I was sick, and ye visited me. I was in prison and ye came unto me.' Then shall the righteous answer him saying, 'Lord when saw we thee as hunger, and fed thee? Etc..' And the King shall answer and say, 'Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of my brethren, ye have done it unto me." Matthew 25:34-40. "For when thou maketh a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind." Luke 14:13. "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares." Hebrew 13:2. Know this as true as it was then, "The stone that the builders refused will become the head of the corner stone." Matthew 21:42. So "Take heed what ye hear, with what measure ye meet, it shall be measured unto you, and unto you that hear shall more be given. For he that hath, to him shall more be given, and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath." Mark 4:24-25

It is foolish to call oneself a Christian, and not know what Jesus spoke. For if one knew and heard, if one saw and sees, then one would not be so willingly to call themselves a Christian. For it is not easy, in fact, it is as hard a thing as a camel going through the eye of the needle. Yet in all things, as God is within the self, all things are possible. For it is the faith that resides within, that makes it so. For it is humorous to think that simply getting dunk into water, and reciting a few words makes one a Christian. Better it be that one calls oneself a Catholic, a Protestant, a Mormon, a Jehovah Witness, a Baptist, or whatever other denomination one claims to be, for be there no offence, I simply have no patience to name all the different religion right now. The point of the matter is, is do not claim to be something you are not. For a Christian is one who takes up their Cross. To think of all those killed in the Name of a Merciful God, and a peaceful person such as Jesus. One can see why it is said, "Neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them undo their feet, and turn again and rend you." Matthew 7:6

So what does it take to be a Christian, other then of course what was spoken of earlier. "I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God." John 3:5. Well as we come forth from the womb, so are we born of the water, so then what of the Spirit. As for the Spirit, only each unto their own path shall know. Be not as the seed which is sown among thorns, "And the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful." Mark 4:19. For as you take up your cross and go forth you, "Should take nothing for the journey, save a staff only, no script, no bread, no money in their purse, but be shod with sandals, and not put on two coats. What place so ever ye enter into a house, there abide till ye depart from that place. And in whatsoever house ye enter, first say, peace be to this house, and if the son(sun) of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it; if not, it shall turn to you again. And in the same house remain eating and drinking such things as they give. For the laborer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house." Luke 10:5-7. "For it is not what goest into the mouth that defileth a man, but that which cometh out of the mouth that defileth man." Matthew 15:11. "I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of Judgement. For by the words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words shalt thee be condemned." Matthew 12:36-37. For "No man having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God." Luke 9:62. And "Whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple." Luke 14:33

The cross looks heavy, and so very few have the courage to lift it. Yet, the yoke is light when taken up, and the way is peaceful. As for the rest, they will say unto one another, "We saw one casting out devils in Thy name, and he followeth not us, and we forbade him because he followeth not us, but Jesus said, 'Forbid him not, for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me." Mark 9:38-40. So then, how does one gain faith to do the work? "Why could we not cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, 'Because of your unbelief. For verily I say unto you, if ye have faith as a grain of a mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove. Nothing shall be impossible unto you. Howbeit this kind goest not out but by prayer and fasting." Matthew 11:19-21. For these signs shall follow those who believe, "In my name shall they cast out devils, they shall speak with new tongues, they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them, they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." Mark 16:17-18. And what is this jabber of syllables people call, "Speaking in Tongues". "They were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other Tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance; and there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men out of every nation under Heaven. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together and were confounded, Because every man heard them speak in his own language." Acts 2:4-6. Be not confused then, this is talking in Tongues, not some insane words that some deciphering channel translates. Be it a blessing that at the least they are channeling a benevolent spirit that brings peaceful tiding. For talking in tongues is the ability to speak to the true essence of each being, so that all shall understand, and not just on paid decipher

And so we close with what was spoken by Jesus unto the people; "Is it not written in your Law, I said 'Ye are Gods." John 10:34

Thank you great Spirit for Life, Breath, and Death. Amen…

As with all writings, I ask for forgiveness in any thing that is incorrect, or in any way misrepresented. This is unto the best of my understandings, what it takes to be a Christian. All has been quoted from the King James Version of the Present Biblical writings. I have left out any real depth in these writings, simply for the fact that it is unjustified, and in truth, not really needed. Know though, that as one enters the path of the Christos, then comes the true initiation unto the Highest Mysteries of Man. Until then, Look from the Heart and not the Mind

May the Sun shine brightly upon Thy heart and the Moon light guide Thee in Thy dreams…
