CHRISTIANITY: THE CURSE UPON AMERICA’S FREEDOM

downloadAmerica was founded upon spiritual principles or truths, our Founding Fathers divinely inspired by The Holy Bible.  

Principle: a basic truth, which applies to both the physical and the spiritual.
Foundation: the basis on which a thing stands, is founded, or is supported.

The Declaration of Independence” proclaims as a self-evident truth the First Principle.  That “all men are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  

We were all created in the image of God, as it is written,

“Let us make man in our image; after our likeness.”   

The image of God is His Spirit and His word, truth, Jesus personified, through which we obtain life and liberty, as it is written, 

“In him was life… the truth shall make you free.”   

Spirit and truth, the two-fold power we have all have been endowed with by our Creator, through which we obtain true happiness, should we choose to pursue it.   The Founding Fathers formed the government of America, “the land of the free,” after the likeness of God.  But to continue to be the land of freedom for the World, the people must be governed by God’s Spirit, and obedient to God’s word, the two divine attributes of the Creator.   

Christianity:  the religion derived from Jesus Christ.  Derived: of, or pertaining to. 

The Christian religion was not derived from Jesus Christ.  It was derived from the teachings of Paul.   Apostle Peter wrote the following about Apostle Paul in his letter to Clement:

“bad instruction, vain boasting, and other such evils have filled the whole house of this world like some enormous smoke preventing those who dwell in it from seeing the Founder aright.” 

Peter goes on to say that Paul is the source of these errors, and that his visions deluded him. (Recognitions of Clement 1.15).  The following is a quote from one of the seven Founders pertaining to this man-made religion:

Christianity is the most perverted system that ever shone on man. …Rogueries, absurdities and untruths were perpetrated upon the teachings of Jesus by a large band of dupes and importers led by Paul, the first great corrupter of the teaching of Jesus.”  – Thomas Jefferson. 

It was most likely this insight that gave rise to Jefferson’s “Wall of Separation between Church and State,” which Jesus spoke to, saying,

“Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.” 

The Founders saw the danger in mixing government with religion, symbolized by the iron and clay in the Book of Daniel:

“… they shall not cleave one to another, even as the iron is not mixed with clay”   Daniel 2:43  

Thomas Paine, considered by some to be a Founding Father, said this:

“All this [Paul’s writing] is nothing better than the jargon of a conjurer who picks up phrases he does not understand to confound the credulous people who come to have their fortune told.”  

The Founders were deists: one who believes in the existence of a personal God, but in few or none of the doctrines of the Christian religion. 

Christianity was founded upon the conjured, carnal-minded teachings of Paul, not upon the spiritual teachings of Jesus. In destroying the spiritual principles and truths upon which America was founded, Christians are unwittingly giving power to a government that will destroy what America stands for, which is FREEDOM!

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SON

OpenBible2

The son symbolizes the seed or word of God (Luke 8:11).  All things are made by a seed (John 1:3). God’s physical creation was made by His word (Genesis 1:3). The Holy Bible begins with the creation of a physical heaven and earth and ends with the creation of a spiritual heaven and earth. 

The physical creation was made when God spoke His word, the sowing of His seed in the earth.   Our spiritual creation is made when God’s sows His spiritual seed in our heart.

The instruction for this spiritual creation is encoded in the beginning and end of the book of Genesis, which means creation; an instruction the children of Israel, chosen to represent us the people failed to comprehend, having eyes that could not see and ears that could not hear.  So God sowed His seed in another mother; in the womb of Mary, her son providing us with the instruction for this spiritual creation through his word.  Jews and Muslims (the seed of Abraham in the literal sense) deny the son.  The fact that Muslims reject the idea of the Creator having a son makes perfect sense because the Holy Quran does not refer to Allah as Father. But it also reveals the carnal mind, which cannot comprehend how something that is spiritual (Allah) could produce something that is physical (Jesus).  Yet, isn’t that the pattern of creation itself.  Something that is unseen (Spirit) producing something that is seen (matter)?  If Muslims believe that Allah is the Creator of the heaven(s) and the earth, they unwittingly agree that Allah has a seed, the son symbolizing the seed by which all things are made.  The New Testament of the Holy Bible does refer to God as Father, and yet many Christians are still denying the Son literally, saying Jesus is God.  The Father is not the Son.  There is one God and one seed of God; Father and Son. The Holy Bible tells us that he that denies the Father and the Son is antichrist, which Jews, Muslims, and Christians are all guilty of in the literal sense, in one way or another.  But we are all antichrist in the spiritual sense as long as we are against christ; against the spiritual power through which we perform the spiritual works that results in our new spiritual creation. 

Jesus, the physical manifestation of the son or seed of God does not care if we believe in him. He wants us to “believe the works,” the word believe meaning to obey; put action to.  Christians say they believe in Jesus, but they do not obey the spiritual works that are synonymous with the son (John 10:36-38). Neither do Jews and Muslims.  Jews fail to obey the spiritual works by not observing the spiritual instruction found in the beginning and end of the first book of the Torah.  Muslims fail to perform the spiritual works because the Quran does not provide the instruction for these works. Christians fail to obey the spiritual works because they have been taught that Jesus did the works for them, which is a lie. There can be no creation without the son, which is the seed, by which all things are made.  We have already made a creation, but through an unholy seed called the son of perdition. This unholy creation is called “the first heaven and earth,”  which is to pass away.  What is to take its place is a holy creation, made through God’s seed or son, which is called “a new heaven and a new earth”  (Revelation 21:1).  Abraham had two sons.  Ishmael and Isaac.  The son symbolizes both the seed and the word of God, through which the physical heaven and earth was made. Both the Holy Bible and the Holy Quran are considered to be the literal Word of God or Allah. However, the Holy Quran does not contain the instruction for our new spiritual creation as it does not teach on the spiritual meaning of the son.  It only goes as far as to say that Mary had a son, and that like Muhammed, that son was no more than a Prophet.  But now we understand the importance of the son!

SARAH THE FREEWOMAN

Sarah_freewoman

The importance of Sarah today is in what she symbolizes.  The transition of power that took place two thousand years ago was the type-and-shadow of the transition that is to take place today, illustrated by the beheading of John the Baptist, the beheading symbolizing the decrease of power and authority associated with mind-body disciplines, and the increase of power and authority associated with a heart-discipline.  It is important that we move with this transition by desiring to be spiritually free.

Sarah symbolizes the Heart.  Spiritual freedom can only come through the Heart.  We cannot think, practice, or pray our way to it.  As John prepared the way for the coming of Jesus, quieting the mind prepares the way for the coming of the spiritual Jesus— the word that forms a spiritual creation, the instructions for which are encoded in the symbolism of the creation story, and in the symbolism of Jesus’ parables. 

The East is associated with the Spirit, and the Mind.  The West is associated with the Word, and the Heart.  If the Spirit (of Elijah/John) were enough, why send the Word (Jesus)?  The Spirit of God is Love, which alone cannot transform us.  It cannot form us into a new creation.  That will require the Word of God, Truth, which when sowed in the heart, makes us spiritually free.  “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” 

There is a lot of talk these days of love and consciousness.  Consciousness is the state of being conscious: mentally perceptive or alert.   But attempting to reach deeper levels of consciousness through the power of the mind is futile, because the deeper levels are of the sub-conscious, of the heart, which can only be reached through the power of the heart.  That power is called christ, through which we reach what is being called, “Christ consciousness,”  and what the Bible calls, perfect love.

If these deeper works were being done by those of us who claim to be God’s people, or claim to be spiritual, the world would not be heading away from what Sarah symbolizes, which is  freedom.  And into what Hagar symbolizes, which is bondage.  This is happening because the power of the mind (mental energy) does not  have the power to retrieve us out of spiritual bondage.  

Abraham had sons by Hagar, Sarah, and Keturah.  Hagar and Keturah were concubines, bondwomen, symbolizing bondage.  Some scholars suggest that Hagar and Keturah were one and the same, and symbolically, this is true.  Hagar represents those of religion, who claim to have the gifts mentioned in scripture.  Keturah represents those who claim to have spiritual gifts, such as psychics, mediums, and empaths, having the ability to predict the future, tap into the spiritual realm, or into the emotional realm of someone else.  None of which can release us from our spiritual bondage.  

“And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.  But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son…”  Genesis 25:5,6

It was Sarah’s son that received all that the Father had.  Sarah symbolizes the Heart, the son symbolizing truth, which makes us free of  our spiritual bondage.   It is through the power of the heart that we claim all of the Father’s inheritance.  Love and truth.   It is within the heart that we do the spiritual works that are synonymous with the word of God, the spiritual Jesus.  David and Jesus spoke of the unholy condition of man’s heart, and its need for purification.   While many talk about the positive emotion of the Heart.  Few talk about the negative emotion of the Heart; the anger that lies buried deep in our heart, keeping us in spiritual bondage.  We want to talk about the good, which feels good.  But not about the evil, which is uncomfortable.  We do not want to see it or admit to it, resisting the holy spirit that brings it to the surface, into the light of truth, so that we may be made free of it.   In fearing to confront the evil within, we are rejecting the Word of God, which says, “resist not evil,” giving power to the evil without!

Hagar and Sarah.  Bondage and Free.  These are the Two Covenants.

THE 144,000

OpenBible2We find this number in the Book of Revelation; a revelation for mankind, which came from Jesus through John.

“And I heard the number of them which were sealed; and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of Israel.”  Revelation 7:4

The word sealed means to stamp (with a signet or private mark (for security or preservation), referring to a spiritual security or preservation.

“And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.”  Genesis 32:30 

It is our spiritual life that is preserved, through which we enter an invisible wall of protection, the measure of which is 144.

“And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.”  Revelation 21:17. 

How does man reach this spiritual measure of 144?   By obeying Jesus’ instruction pertaining to the twelve tribes of Israel:

“And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”  Matthew 19:28

The word regeneration means anew; the process of forming again, referring to the forming of a new creation from within, “a new heaven and a new earth,” symbolizing a new mind and a new heart, through which “the first heaven and the first earth” (formed in a darkness we mistook for light; through lies we mistook for truth) passing away through the process.

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away.”  Revelation 21:1

The twelve tribes of Israel are neither lost nor extinct, but existing within us in the form of positive and negative aspects.  We are to judge the negative aspects of the tribes, which is to overcome them. The number twelve represents judgment, as we see in our own judicial system.  Judging the 12 tribes of Israel formulates to 12 x 12, which equals 144,

“the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

An angel is a messenger. Those that hear, through obedience, the message of the angel of the first 6 churches in the book of Revelation, reach the spiritual measure of 144.   As God’s physical creation was formed through 6 days of works (not to be taken literally), our new spiritual creation is formed through 6 (metaphorical) days of (spiritual) works.  A day is 24 hours, 6 days formulating to 6 x 24, which equals 144.  These spiritual works are the works of the spiritual judgment that is to take place within us— the act of overcoming all of our false religious and personal beliefs.

Those that reach the spiritual measure of 144 by executing God’s spiritual judgment upon themselves, enter the 1,000-year reign of Christ: 144 + 1,000 = 144,000.

“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them…  and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years…”  Revelation 20:7.  

The reign of Christ begins within the individual when christ (spirit and word; love and truth) rules their mind and heart.  These make up the 144,000 mentioned in chapter seven of the book of Revelation.  Notice that the tribe of Dan is not listed among the tribes.  That is because the word Dan means judge, and the 144,000 have already judged themselves

MEDITATION

Ancient Instruction on Meditation

And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.”   Revelation 8:1

The seventh seal or seventh chakra connects us to the divinity within, to our divine source; our holy spirit, a positive spiritual energy, a connection that requires silence in heaven; quiet in the mind.

Set aside half an hour each day to be still in mind and body.

“And the earth was without form, and void;…

Set aside all incantations, mantras, or repetitious prayers, which are extraneous attachments to belief, creating the void that is needed for the new creation to begin.

and darkness was upon the face of the deep.”

This means nothingness in the mind. No visualizations, no gazing at crystals, no making of sounds. Listen only to the primordial sound of your breath, the physical manifestation of the holy spirit.

“And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

When we quiet our mind, we abase its power; the power of the mind giving way to the power or holy spirit of the heart, which void of all extraneous attachments, is free to move upon the waters, influencing the thoughts of our mind. It takes time to quiet the mind, to turn off the everyday thoughts, so be patient, “But let patience have her perfect work” (James 1:4), that perfect work being a complete transform-ation. When the ego-driven thoughts of the mind are restrained, the holy spirit of the heart is free to move the subconscious thoughts into the light; into the awareness of the conscious mind.

THE LITTLE BOOK FOR THE SOUL: an ancient healing process; “In the Beginning”


Written by Sandra L. Butler © 2001

THE GODHEAD

 

Father Son Holy Spirit

The Principles of Creation.  The Foundation of Spiritual Truth.

Principle: a basic truth, which applies to both the physical and the spiritual.
Foundation: the basis on which a thing stands, is founded, or is supported.

“In the beginning God created heaven and earth.” Genesis 1:1.

To create is to have the thought.  Nothing has been made yet.

And the earth was without form… ”  

To bring heaven and earth into existence would take two things. 

And the Spirit of God moved… “And God said…”  Genesis 1:2,3 

Spirit and word.  Energy and seed.

“And the parable is this: the seed is the word of God.”  Luke 8:11

The two divine attributes of the Creator and Creation are symbolized in scripture by the “two witnesses,” and the “two olive trees” or “two olive branches,” which Moses and Aaron, Joshua and Caleb, Elijah and Elisha, and John and Jesus personified.

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness… male and female created he them.”  Genesis 1:26,27

We were physically made after this likeness when our father, sowed his seed, by his energy (male) in our mother (female), as God sowed His word, by His Spirit (male) in mother earth (female).  We are spiritually made in the image of God when the holy spirit sows the seed or word of truth in our heart.  We see the image of God in the Patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, representing the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  The Hebrew name for God is ELOHIM, revealing God’s image: EL = God the Father.  OH = the Son.  IM = the Holy Spirit; the I AM, revealing the Godhead.  Some Christians say there are three persons in the Godhead, while others say one, proclaiming Jesus is God.  The truth is, the three are of one, as God, spoke His word, through His Spirit.  And as man, sows his seed, through his energy.   

“In the beginning was the word, and the word was with the God, and a god was the word.”  John 1:1  (Original Greek translation)
“In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the Word was God.”  John 1:1  (King James translation)

“A god was the word” has been changed to “the Word was God,” an error in translation that has Christians calling Jesus God, through which they are unwittingly denying the Son.

“The same was in the beginning with God.”  John 1:2 

Jesus was with God in the beginning, being the seed through which the creation was made.  

“All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.”  John 1:3  

All things are made by a seed. When seed is sowed in the earth, as truth is sowed in the heart, it does not produce its fruit in a day. 

“… Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once?”  Isaiah 66:8

The words of the Prophet Isaiah, which admonish the teaching that we are born [again] the moment we accept Jesus into our heart.  The spiritual Jesus is the seed of God.  This elementary-level of acceptance is not the sowing of God’s seed or word of truth into that spiritual earth called the heart

“Is it not written in your law, I said, ye are gods. If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came… [why] say ye of him, Thou blasphemest because I said, I am the Son of God.?  If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not… thou you believe not me, believe the works…”  John 10:34-38 

Here, Jesus is teaching us that the works are synonymous with the son.  The way we bring fruit unto God, becoming a god or son, is through works.  Christians who follow the teachings of Paul are unwittingly rejecting the Son by omitting the spiritual works, which the Son finished, and instructed us to finish, saying, believe the worksthe word believe meaning to obey or put action to.  The works of a spiritual creation, which as gods, being made in the image of the God, we have the power to bring into existence. 

The word of God is the seed of God.  Having the seed of God makes one a god, not God.  In like manner, if the seed of the man is conceived in the womb of the woman, that seed becomes a son or daughter, not the father that sowed it.  Jesus is not God.  Blasphemy is to make oneself equal with God, or God’s power, which Jesus never did.  Jesus never said he was God.  There are two verses used to proclaim that Jesus is God.  The first, as discussed, a mistranslation. The second,

“I and my Father are one,”  John 10:30

a misunderstanding.  Jesus is not saying he is God.  He is saying that he and his Father are one with respect to the works of creation, God’s physical creation being a pattern or  instruction for the spiritual creation formed in us through spiritual works, which Jesus spoke of and demonstrated for us while he was on this earth. 

“ No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.”  John 1:18

But Jesus was seen, being the seed or word of God made flesh.  Jesus said he proceeded and came from God.  The seed proceeded from the Father, sowed in the womb of Mary. 

“…neither came I of myself, but he sent me”  John 8:42

The seed does not sow itself.  Energy or Spirit is needed to sow the seed, whether it be in the earth, or in the heart.  There are two fathers, two seeds, two energies, and two creations.  The good seed, sowed through holy spirit, is attributed to christ. The evil seed, sowed through unholy spirit, is attributed to antichrist. 

“… He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.”  1 John 2:22

One denies the Father and the Son literally by saying Jesus is God.  One denies the Father and the Son spiritually by omitting the spiritual works that are synonymous with the Son.  Christ is not Jesus’ surname. It is the spiritual power through which we perform these spiritual or internal works.  If we  have not been doing the works because we have been taught that Jesus finished them for us, we are antichrist; against the spiritual power needed for our new spiritual creation to come into existence. 

“ Ye are of your father the devil… When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”  John 8:44

Each of us acts as a spiritual father, having sowed spiritual seed through spiritual energy, in our spiritual mother.  We have all eaten of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, sowing good and evil seed in that spiritual earth called the heart.  In the process of time, the evil seeds choked out the good seed, as we learn from Jesus’ parables.  The unholy creation that has been formed in us is called “the first heaven and earth,” which passes away upon the formation of our holy creation, through six (metaphorical) days of (spiritual) works. 

“ And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and earth were passed away…”  Revelation 21:1  

The Godhead reveals the principles of creation, the foundation of all spiritual truth.

FAITH & SALVATION

OpenBible2“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  Hebrews 11:1

In the definition of faith we find the beginning of faith (things hoped for, things not seen) and the end of faith (the substance, the evidence).  The beginning of faith is an analogy to the beginning of Creation.

“In the beginning God created heaven and earth.”   Genesis 1:1.

God envisioned His creation.  But there was no evidence.  Nothing has been made yet, as we see in verse 2.  For the thought or idea to become substance (matter) would require the word of God.  The seed of God.  Every thing is made by a seed.

“And God said…” Genesis 1:3

“And the word was made flesh…”   John 1:14

Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.”  Luke 8:11

“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”   John 1:3

God’s thought of creation became a reality through His word; through the works that brought His creation into existence.  Faith, like creation and salvation, requires works.

“ Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.”  James 2:26.

We are given a number of examples of the works associated with the beginning of faith in the book of Hebrews, each one having to do with external salvation, which started with a thought.  Noah, believing in his mind that a flood was coming, began the works of building an ark.  Just because we say something with our mouth, think or believe something in our mind, does not make it a reality in our heart.  Saying we are saved because we have accepted Jesus into our heart does not make it so.  To be saved we must accept the spiritual Jesus into our heart.  The spiritual Jesus is the word of God, truth, through which we truly become in our heart what we think we are in our mind.

“Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:”  Revelation 3:17

Christians say they “believe” in Jesus.  This is the beginning of faith.  But this elementary-level faith is not enough to save us.  Salvation, like creation, requires works.   Jesus said, “believe the works,” the word “believe” meaning “to obey or put action to,” referring to the spiritual works of God, through which we receive internal salvation.  This is the end of faith.

“ If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.  But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works…”  John 10:37,38

“Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.”  1 Peter 1:9.

As it took works to bring God’s physical creation into existence, it takes works to bring our spiritual creation into existence.  The carnal works of the law, a figure or type-and-shadow of the spiritual works, could not perfect them that kept them.

 “… which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.”   Hebrews 9:9,10 

They were to keep the carnal works of the law until  “the time of reformation.”  When we do the spiritual (internal) works of the Father, through which we form a new heaven and earth.

“For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” Matthew 5:18

Jesus is speaking of a spiritual heaven and earth.  The “first heaven and the first earth.”

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away…”  Revelation 21:1  

Jesus said he came not to destroy the law, but to fulfil it.  It is not Jesus who fulfils the law.  It is the works of the Father that fulfils the law.

“ If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.  But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works…”  ~ Jesus

The works of the Father are the works of creation, the works being synonymous with the word, the seed, the means by which all things are made.  We have six (metaphorical) days of (spiritual) works to perform.  The spiritual works of creation are found in the beginning and end of the book of Genesis, which means creation.  The beginning of Genesis gives us an overview of the creation process.  The end of Genesis, where Jacob tells his twelve sons what will befall them in the end of days, gives us the instruction for the salvation process.  Salvation through creation!

“Receiving the end of your faitheven the salvation of your souls.”  1 Peter 1:9
