  Everything about Jesus is controversial. Nothing is more controversial than
 what's been written in the gospels themselves as pertaining to his very last

  In Matt. 27-46 - Jesus' last words are given to us as follows. - "My God,
 My God, why did you abandon me?"

  In Mark 15-34 - Jesus' last words are given to us as follows. - "My God,
 My God, why did you abandon me?"

  So far, so good. - HOWEVER,

  In Luke  23- 45 - Jesus' last words are given to us as follows. - "Father!
 In your hands, I place my spirit."

  We are faced with a dilemma now. - But wait, there's more.

  In John 19-30 - Jesus' last words are given to us as follows. - "It is

  Now the dilemma deepens. Now we find ourselves with a multiple
choice decision on our hands. As to the very last words spoken in this
world by our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ.

  What are we to think about this blatant discrepancy?  - It's right there in
the gospels themselves!


  As an awakened soul, the choice is a no-brainer. The question though is.
 WHY do we have to make a choice in the first place?

  And when we make that choice, does it affect the rejected gospels entire
 versions of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus? - You bet it does!


  As a disciple of the Son of man, I for one, could never follow Jesus if
 I believed, even for a nano-second, that his very last words were, as
declared in the gospels of Matthew and Mark. - The reasoning's simple.
 Since Jesus had fore-knowledge of all events and knew where he was
 going, - He could hardly have uttered such an absurdity.


  Furthermore, as an awakened soul, I can not accept Luke's version of
 what Jesus' last words were either. - Again, The reasoning's simple. Jesus
 is spirit, and like Jesus said, - "GOD is Spirit." - Ask yourself,  Does God
 have a spirit?  Jesus said, " Believe me when I say that I am in the Father
 and the FATHER is in me." JESUS IS SPIRIT. He doesn't have one.


  Lastly, we come to John's version of what Jesus' last words were. - In John,
 we find what we would have expected our saviour to say. "IT IS FINISHED."
 His mission in the physical world flawlessly completed.

  Just as JESUS doesn't have a spirit because he is spirit, the same applies to
 the true-man, SOUL.

      Always remember, you do not possess a soul, YOU ARE A SOUL.

I Have Defeated The World

  "I have defeated the world."

  John 16:33 ( last sentence ) JESUS said, "I have defeated the world."

  What was Jesus really saying? What does this single sentence truly mean?

  Some might say, (an atheist perhaps) that the world defeated him. After

  all, he was murdered! (legally of course) by the Romans, - BUT - for the

  high priests of the pharisees.

  What was he murdered for?

    He was murdered for daring to question the authortity and the teachings
  of the pharisees, not necessarily the teachings themselves, but how they

  were being misused, misinterpreted, and therefore - misunderstood.

  The high priests, in turn, manipulated the Romans to crucify him.

   So, you could say, (as any unbeliever might) that the world defeated him

  and, on the surface at least, SEEM right.

    Unbelievers, of course, percieve only half ( the physical half ) of what
  Jesus was really saying.


  So what Did Jesus defeat?  What world did He conquer?  What exactly did He

    JESUS conquered the physical world by overcoming and defeating EGO!

  Being the Son of God, it probably was easier for Him than it will be for us.

  Jesus knew who he was. He knew he was more than just physical. Jesus was

  also well aware that the people did not know their true selves.

   The true-man is soul. - Soul is the true-life. - Soul is the life force.

  Whatever SOUL perceives, it gives life to in the mind and is retained in

  mind's memory-banks for recall, if and when needed.

    This LIFE! - in mind's memory-banks, attached to each and every perception

  of the physical world since birth, is in fact - LIFE!

                     LIFE IS LIFE --- IT MUST LIVE

  This LIFE that's attached to every perception of the true-man (soul) comes

  together in the mind and becomes EGO.

  So, you could say that EGO is nothing more than a by-product of SOUL's


  So, how can  this by-product, this second-hand shadow life - (EGO),

  dominate and live, the true-man's life, here in the physical world?

    The answer is simple -- That soul is asleep!!!


  Read and perceive the words of Jesus as the true-man, the SOUL you are.

  Jesus came to save the true-man - not the flesh and most certainly not EGO!

  The mind belongs to the true-man (SOUL).

  Believe and receive!

  Once awakened through Jesus, The child of God  (SOUL)  will no longer be

  dominated by EGO in the mind. -  No more than a flash-light - could dominate the sun!

      Jesus said: - John 15:1-5

  (1) "I am the real vine and my Father is the gardener."

  (2) "He breaks off every branch in me that does not bear
      fruit, and he prunes every branch that does bear fruit,
      so that it will be clean and bear more fruit."

  (3) "You have been made clean already by the teaching I
      have given you."

  (4) "Remain united to me, and I will remain united to you.
      A branch cannot bear fruit by itself; it can do so only
      if it remains in the vine. In the same way, you cannot
      bear fruit unless you remain in me."

  (5) "I am the vine, and you are the branches. Whoever
      remains in me, and I in him, will bear much fruit; for
      you can do nothing without me."

  Jesus is explaining the facts of life to his disciples in
  the above teaching, They understood what he was saying to
  them, yet, to the average person today (2000 years later)
  What does this teaching mean?

  What do we know of this parable?

  We know that the words of Jesus are directed to the true-man,
  (the soul).
  We know that Jesus taught the people through parables.
  We know that the parables have hidden meanings contained
  within them.
  We know then, that the real and true meaning of this teaching
  is not what it reads literally.
  So. what does it mean? What was Jesus really saying?

  The only true answer is that no one today can know precisely
  what Jesus meant. Some would argue that given the facts that
  the scriptures are translated from Hebrew, Greek, Latin, etc.
  and by vested interests of the day, that the true meaning is
  long lost. They are entitled to their opinion.

  Believers in Jesus are also entitled to their opinion!

  The following is a hypothetical exercise only and is designed
  for conversation and debate on and about the meaning of the
  teachings of Jesus, who is our saviour.

  Playing the WHAT IF game, - changing a noun here and a verb
  there, perhaps we can come to an understanding of what the
  real teaching is?

  What if the noun 'VINE' meant 'LIFE'?

  What if the noun 'GARDENER' meant 'OVERSEER' (caretaker)

  What if the noun 'BRANCHES'  meant  'LIVING SOULS'?

  What if the verbs 'PRUNES and BREAKS '  meant  'TENDS TO ' (removes)

  What if 'BEARS FRUIT'  meant  'LIVES IN LOVE'?

  What if 'MADE CLEAN'  meant  'AWAKENED TO TRUTH'?

  Now we are ready to cast a little light on this teaching.

                   ( HYPOTHETICALLY OF COURSE )

 John 15 (1) 'I am the real life and God is the overseer.'
         (2) 'He removes every living soul in me that does not
             live in love, and tends every living soul that does
             live in love so that it will be awakened to truth and
             live in love more abundantly.'

         (3) 'You have been awakened already by the teaching I
              have  given you.'

         (4) 'Remain united to me, and I will remain united to you.
             A living soul cannot live in love by itself; it can do
             so only if it remains in the true life. in the same way,
             you cannot live in love unless you remain in me.'

         (5) 'I am the life, and you are the living souls. Whoever
             remains in me and I in him will live in love eternal.
             You can do nothing without me.'

  Jesus said: John 5:26

         (26) "Just as the Father is Himself the source of life,
              in the same way He has made His Son to be the source
              of life."

  The true-man is the soul you are! --- Soul is the child of God!

  NOT the physical man - and  NOT  the ego!

  Always remember  -  You do not possess a soul  -  YOU ARE SOUL!

  NEW TRUTHS AND OLD - Matthew 13:51-52

  (51)  "Do you understand these things?" Jesus asked them.
  "Yes," they answered.

  (52)  so he replied, "This means then, That every teacher
  of the law who becomes a disciple in the Kingdom of Heaven
  is like the owner of a house who takes new and old things
  out of his storeroom."

  What did Jesus mean when he said these words to his disciples?

  He appears to be testing their understanding of his teaching.

  As mentioned in previous blogs, Jesus used parables when
  teaching and these parables held hidden meanings.

  The teachings of Jesus are directed to the true-man, the soul.

  The soul with ears (an awakened soul) understands that there is
  truth to be found within the parables.

  And so, What is the meaning of this parable?

  Firstly, What must be considered here is that Jesus is speaking
  to his disciples.
  The fact that Jesus is using a parable to confirm to himself that
  they understood him, shows that Jesus took nothing for granted.
  The disciples were privy as to the real teachings within the
  parables because Jesus explained them, to them! He did not explain
  them to the people.

  There are no hints as to the true meaning of this teaching and an
  awakened soul must read between the lines.

  Playing the 'WHAT IF' game and changing a noun here and a verb
  there, perhaps we can get a better understanding as to the true
  meaning of this parable.

  WHAT IF - teacher of the law      - meant - An awakened soul?
  WHAT IF - Disciple                     - meant - teacher?
  WHAT IF - Kingdom of Heaven  - meant - Spirit world (God)?
  WHAT IF - house                        - meant - mind?
  WHAT IF - storeroom                 - meant - memory?
  WHAT IF - New and old things   - meant - Truths and falsehoods?

  Then this parable could read as follows;
                    HYPOTHETICALLY OF COURSE!

  Matthew 13:52 'This means, then, that every awakened soul who
                becomes a teacher of God's world is like the owner
                of a new mind who sweeps it's memory banks of
                falsehoods new and old keeping only what is true.'

  The words of Jesus are meant for the soul not the physical man and
  not the ego. The soul that you are is the child of God.

  Remember always - You do not possess a soul - YOU ARE SOUL!!!

  Nobody Knows but the Father!

  Jesus said: Matthew 24:36-44

  (36) "No one knows, however, neither the angels in heaven
       nor the Son; the Father alone knows."

  (37) "The coming of the Son of Man will be like what
       happened in the time of Noah."

  (38) "In the days before the flood people ate and drank,
       men and women married, up to the very day Noah went
       into the boat;

  (39) yet they did not realize what was happening until the
       flood came and swept them all away. that is how it
       will be when the Son of Man comes."

  (40) "At that time two men will be working in a field: one
       will be taken away, the other will be left behind.

  (41) Two women will be at a mill grinding meal: one will
       be taken away, the other will be left behind."

  (42) "Be on your guard, then, because you do not know what
       day your Lord will come."

  (43) "If the owner of a house knew the time when the thief
       would come, you can be sure that he would stay awake
       and not let the thief break into his house."

  (44) "So then, you also must always be ready, because the
       Son of Man will come at an hour when you are not
       expecting him."

  When Jesus spoke to his disciples about the end of the age,
  he spoke plainly to them.

  Many believers are confused at this time about the end time
  and rapture etc.

  As believers in Jesus, we must take his word as truth and if
  we do so, we need not concern ourselves with predictions or
  calculations of men.

  Believe in God - Believe in Jesus, our saviour!
  Love God, love Jesus, love the Holy Spirit, love your brothers
  and sisters of the spirit.

  Remembering always - YOU DO NOT POSSESS A SOUL - YOU ARE SOUL!!

  The parable of the growing seed

  Mark 4:26-29

  (26) Jesus went on to say. "The Kingdom of God is like
       this: A man scatters seed in his field.
  (27) He sleeps at night, is up and about during the day,
       and all the while the seeds are sprouting and
       growing. Yet he does not know how it happens.
  (28) The soil itself makes the plants grow and bear fruit;
       First the tender stalk appears, then the ear, and
       finally the ear full of corn.
  (29) When the corn is ripe, the man starts cutting
       it with his sickle, because harvest time has come."

  This is a hypothetical exercise only and is designed to
  stimulate conversation and debate about the teachings of our
  Lord and saviour Jesus, the messiah.

  As mentioned in previous blogs, the parables of Jesus
  contain hidden meanings directed to the true-man, the soul
  that you truly are.
  What is the true teaching in the parable of the growing seed?

  First thing to do is go to the two parables that Jesus did
  explain and look for hints.

  For example; in Jesus' explaination of the parable of the
  sower, the seeds represent the message as understood by
  different minded people. Matthew 13;18-23

  In Jesus' explaination of the parable of the weeds in the
  field, the field represents the world and the good seeds
  represent the people who belong to the Kingdom.
  The man who sows the good seeds is  the Son of Man and
  harvest time is the end of the age Matthew 13:36-43

  Now we can approach the parable of the growing seed armed
  with a little light as to its true meaning.

  An awakened soul may, or may not, perceive this parable as
  follows: (HYPOTHETICALLY of course)

  Mark 4:26  The Son of Man scatters or plants living souls in
  the physical world.

  Mark 4:27  Time passes and the living soul matures,
  yet unaware of its true self.

  Mark 4:28  Hearing the words of the Son of Man despite the
  chaos in the physical world, the living soul is reborn, this
  time - of the spirit. Awakened now, the living soul begins to
  understand its' role as a child of God. It is a gentle and
  loving unfolding about the truth of our Heavenly Father.

  Mark 4:29  Knowing the truth of the FATHER, and of itself,
  through Jesus, the awakened child of God is compelled to
  bring as many of his or her brothers and sisters to Jesus as
  possible, so they too may be reborn through Jesus. At the end
  of the age, only those souls awakened through Jesus will be
  harvested for the Kingdom of God.

  The words of Jesus are directed to the true-man, the living
  soul that you truly are. The true-man is not the flesh! The
  true-man is not ego! It is ego that thinks it has a soul, it
  does not.

   - YOU ARE SOUL!!!

Nicodemus didn't know!

  Nicodemus didn't know!

  JESUS SAID. John 3:3

  "I am telling you the truth: No one can see the Kingdom
  of God unless he is born again."

  JESUS SAID. John 3:6

  "A person is born physically of human parents but he is
  born spiritually of the spirit."

  These words, attributed to Jesus, according to the book of
  John were spoken to a Jewish leader named Nicodemus who
  was a member of the party of the Pharisees.

  Nicodemus was a great teacher in Israel, BUT, after hearing
  Jesus' words, said. "How can this be?" John 3:9

  Nicodemus (great leader and teacher of the Pharisees) could
  not understand what Jesus was telling him.

  Jesus spoke in parables when teaching the people but he
  didn't ALWAYS speak in parables.
  When he spoke to his disciples, in private conversations,
  or when he spoke and prayed to his Father, he did not speak
  in parables.

  In his conversation with Nicodemus,(above), Jesus is
  speaking plainly.


  NICODEMUS, not knowing the truth of who, and what he truly
  was  (a dual being)  and operating in EGO mode only, he
  couldn't understand Jesus, even, when Jesus was speaking
  plainly to him.

  The soul, he truly was, was fast asleep.- Put to bed,- by EGO!
  Perhaps, since the VERY moment of his physical birth?

  *For information on how EGO comes to be, THE READER IS

   JESUS SAID; John 3:12

  "You do not believe me when I tell you about the things of
  this world: how will you ever believe me, when I tell you
  about the things of heaven?"

  HERE, Jesus speaks plainly again. This is not a parable.

  Now we see that when reading or listening to the gospel, that
  we really have to be alert, because one moment Jesus speaks
  plainly, but the next sentence could be a parable, with a
  hidden meaning, meant for the true-man. (the soul you are)

  Remember Nicodemus! Great teacher! Great scholar! Leader of
  his people! - He did not know his true self!

  Do not be discouraged when you do not understand.
  Jesus knows of your plight in this world.
  You are not alone! God loves you.
  The soul you are is the child of God, not the man of flesh and
  not EGO.

  The words of Jesus are meant for the true-man.
  Fill yourself with the words of Jesus ONLY, and the magic of
  the 'Living God' will unfold before you.

  Persevere and you will be gifted beyond anything you could
  even possibly imagine currently.

     - YOU ARE SOUL!!

Who listens? Who hears?

  JESUS SAID: Matthew 12:25

  "Whoever loves his own life  will lose it; whoever
  hates his own life in this world will keep it for life


  This particular parable, (at first glance) doesn't seem
  to make much sense. In fact, if you take it at its dead-
  letter meaning, it's difficult to accept.

  On the other hand; Jesus is the Son of God, He did not
  come to save the man of flesh. He came to save the
  true-man, the child of God, the soul you are.

  The teachings of Jesus are meant for and directed to the
  soul, and when heard by the soul that knows these words
  are directed to it, a new and different understanding of
  the teaching emerges.

  As stated in previous blogs, Jesus spoke to the people
  in parables only, and these teachings had hidden meanings.

  This teaching of Jesus is a perfect example of who these
  words are directed to.


  Imagine for a moment that you are soul, and read these
  words over and over again as the soul you are.

  Read and reread these words untill they make perfect sense
  to you, because when they do make perfect sense to you, you
  will become aware (perhaps for the first time) of your true

  An awakened soul might understand the above teaching as

  IF, the child of God  (soul),  prefers its' temporary life in
  the physical world over its' eternal life in heaven,  it  forfeits its'
  eternal life.

  If, the child of God,  (soul),  hates its' life in the physical world,
  and turns to God's world, from whence it came, it will  gain its'
  eternal life.

  Eternal life is not a given - IT MUST BE SOUGHT AND EARNED!

  The 'Living Word' of the 'Living God' is directed to the
  'Living Soul' that YOU truly are.

The Parable of the Mustard Seed - Matthew 13: 31-32

  JESUS said; The Parable of the Mustard Seed

  Matthew 13:31-32
  (31) Jesus told them another parable: "The Kingdom of heaven
  is like this. A man takes a mustard seed and sows it in his
  field. (32) it is the smallest of all seeds, but when it
  grows up, it is the biggest of all plants, it becomes a tree,
  so that birds come and make their nests in it's branches."

   AS ABSOLUTE TRUTH. This exercise is designed to stimulate
   conversation and debate about the teachings of our Saviour,
   the MESSIAH, JESUS! The Son OF MAN, and SON of the LIVING GOD.

           What do we know about this teaching?

  We know from Jesus' explainations of the parable of the 'Sower'
  and the parable of 'the weeds in the field' that the parables
  contain a hidden meaning.

  We know that these teachings of Jesus are directed to the
  true-man, the child of God, the SOUL that you truly are.

  We know for a fact that when Jesus speaks of the 'FIELD'
  (exoterically) that this word means 'WORLD' (esoterically).

  We know that Jesus is describing the Kingdom of heaven and that
  this Kingdom is God's Kingdom. (God is Spirit)

  We know that the exoteric version (the dead-letter version) is
  not the true message.

  We know that the esoteric version (meant for the true-man) is
  the true message within the teaching.

  In short, we know very little about the true meaning of this

  What does the mustard seed represent?
  What or who do the birds represent?

  This being a 'HYPOTHETICAL EXERCISE ONLY'; - and playing the
  'WHAT IF game' - by replacing a noun here and a verb there, let's
  see what an awakened soul may or may not perceive.  
  So, what is the esoteric meaning in 'The Parable of the Mustard

  What if The man was the SON OF MAN?
  What if the mustard seed was A LIVING SOUL?
  What if the field was the PHYSICAL WORLD?
  What if the birds were LOST SOULS?
  If we put all these what ifs together, we can get a peek,
  perhaps, of what this teaching might mean to an awakened soul,

  A HYPOTHETICAL VIEW of this teaching reads as follows

  'The Son Of Man takes a living soul and plants it in the physical
  world. The soul is not visible in the physical world (though it's
  container the body is). As the physical body matures, so does the
  soul within, and before too long, it hears the words of The Son Of
  Man, and is awakened to the truth of itself. Knowing the truth of
  itself, the awakened soul calls to it's brothers and sisters and
  tells them who and what they are. He will tell them of The Son of
  Man and GOD, (our Heavenly Father). So that those that hear will
  turn to God and He in turn will guide them to His Son for rebirth
  into the Kingdom of heaven.

  Only Jesus can awaken the sleeping soul.
  Only faith in GOD will prompt Him to present His Son to you.

  REMEMBER ALWAYS - You do not possess a soul - YOU are SOUL!!

The Parable of the Pearl

  Matthew 13:45-46 The Parable of the pearl

  Jesus said: (45) "The Kingdom of heaven is like this.
  A man is looking for fine pearls, (46) and when he
  finds one that is unusually fine, he goes and sells
  everything he has, and buys that pearl."

  This parable, taken as written means what it says.
  A man finds a pearl and sells everything he has in
  order to buy it.

  At face value, this is no great teaching.
  Are we to believe that Jesus came and suffered all he
  did, to teach us to value pearls over all else? Surely
  he did not!

  An awakened soul perceives this parable through the
  eyes of soul and an entirely new teaching is understood.

  This is a HYPOTHETICAL EXERCISE ONLY and should not taken
  as absolute truth.

  This parable is reminiscent of the parable of the hidden
  treasure Matthew 13:44 (See earlier blog)

  We know from Jesus' explainations of the parables of the
  Sower and The Weeds in the Field (Matthew 13:18-23) and
  Matthew 13:37-43) that the parables have hidden meanings.

  And so. What does the parable of the pearl really mean?

  Questions to answer:
  Who is the man?
  What does the pearl represent?
  What could possess someone to sell everything they own
  to buy a single pearl?

  By changing a noun here and a verb there, a new and
  different teaching emerges.

  Playing the WHAT IF game, let's see what this teaching may
  mean; to the awakened soul.

  What if: The MAN (exoterically) means SOUL (esoterically).
  What if: The PEARL (exoterically) means TRUTH (esoterically)
  What if: Buys (exoterically) means accepts (esoterically).
  What if: sells (exoterically) means Rejects (esoterically.

  Then this parable would read as follows: (HYPOTHETICALLY)

  'The Kingdom of heaven is like this. An awakened soul,
  searching for truth, finds it. Knowing the truth of the
  Kingdom of God and therefore of itself. The awakened soul
  rejects the physical world and accepts the Kingdom of God
  From whence it came'.

  This is a HYPOTHETICAL EXERCISE ONLY and is designed to
  create conversation and debate about the teachings of our
  Lord and saviour, JESUS, the messiah.

  Remember always, you do not possess a soul - YOU ARE SOUL

Jesus said: The Parable of the Yeast

 Matthew 13:33 The Parable of the Yeast

 Jesus told them still another parable: " The Kingdom of
 Heaven is like this. A woman takes some yeast and mixes
 it with 40 litres of flour until the whole batch of
 dough rises."

 As mentioned in previous blogs, the parables of Jesus do
 not mean what they appear to mean.

 The parables contain a hidden meaning and it is up to
 the awakened soul to understand it.

 No one can claim to know exactly what Jesus meant!

 Any attempts to decipher these parables will undoubtedly
 be a source of controversy and so must be dealt with in
 a hypothetical manner.

 This is a hypothetical exercise only! Please be clear on

 The meaning of the above parable; taken at it's dead-letter
 meaning, means exactly what it says and it does not appear
 to mean anything other than a woman making bread.

 Jesus did not come to us, and go through everything he did,
 simply to tell us, how to make bread.

 There is a deeper meaning to this parable! What is it?

 An awakened soul reads between the lines knowing that there
 is a message for the true-man contained within it.

 This parable carries many questions with it.

 Who is the woman mixing the flour?
 What does the flour represent?
 Why 40 litres of flour?
 What does the yeast represent?

 We know that Jesus spoke about bread many times:

 John 6:33 "The bread that God gives is he who comes down
 from heaven and gives life to the world."

 John 6:35 "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will
 never be hungry. He who believes in me will never be

 John 6:51 "I am the bread that came down from heaven. If
 anyone eats this bread, he will live forever."


 What if the WOMAN, spoken of 'exoterically' in the above
 parable meant - THE HOLY SPIRIT, 'esoterically'.

 What if the YEAST, (exoterically) meant SELF-KNOWLEDGE

 What if the 40 LITRES OF FLOUR  (exoterically)  meant THE
 Then (hypothetically of course) the above parable would
 read as follows.

 'The Kingdom of God is like this, the Holy Spirit brings
 self-knowledge to the soul in this the physical world. with
 time this knowledge grows and soon the soul becomes what it
 was meant to become. A CHILD OF GOD!'

The parable of the net


   The parable of the net

   Matthew 13:47 "The Kingdom of heaven is like this.Some
   fisherman throw their net out in the lake and catch all
   kinds of fish. (48) when the net is full, they pull it
   to shore and sit down to divide the fish; the good ones
   go in their buckets, the worthless ones are thrown away.
   (49) It will be like this at the end of the age; The
   angels will go out and gather up the evil people from
   among the good (50) and will throw them into the fiery
   furnace, where they will cry and grind their teeth."

   This parable is very similar to the parable of the weeds
   in the field. matthew 13:24-30
   Therefore, the unscrambling of this parable is rather
   All that needs to be done here is look to matthew 13:36
   where Jesus explains the parable of the weeds in the

   Instead of good seeds (corn) and bad seeds (weeds), the
   parable of the net has good fish and worthless fish. And
   just as the corn was put in the barn and the weeds were
   burned, the same thing is done with the good fish being
   put in a bucket and the worthless fish thrown away.
   The end of the age (harvest time) is when the angels,
   sent by the Son of Man will come and separate the good
   people from the bad people and throw them into the fiery

   The question remaining here is: Who are the good fish
   and who are the worthless fish?

   The good fish are the children of God ( The souls that
   hear the word of God through Jesus)

   The worthless fish are ( the souls that can't accept the
   word of God ) because Ego rules them completely. They can
   not hear, they are unable to listen and therefore do not
   believe in the Son of Man.
   For this, the gravest of all sins, they are not forgiven
   and these souls will be destroyed.


   Matthew 10:28 "Do not be afraid of those who kill the
   body but cannot kill the soul; rather be afraid of God,
   who can destroy both body and soul in hell."

   Remember - You do not possess a soul!  YOU ARE SOUL!

   Let souls with ears hear!

 JESUS SAID: John 7:16
 "What I teach is not my own teaching, but it comes from God
 who sent me."

 "Whoever is willing to do what God wants will know whether
 what I teach comes from God or whether I speak on my own

 John 7:i6-17 - Here, Jesus speaks quite plainly about his
 teaching, the words of Jesus are God's words.

 JESUS SAID: John 7:24
 "Stop judging by external standards, and judge by true

 John 7:24 - Here, We can see that Jesus' words are directed to
 the SOUL. Here, we see that Jesus is referring to two worlds;
 the external world, (the physical world) and the internal world,
 (the world of the spirit), the KINGDOM OF GOD!

 The physical world is not eternal! IT ENDS, and therefore is not
 real in the long view.
 External standards are false standards and therefore not truth
 Jesus speaks directly, saying that 'internal standards' are the
 true-man's (SOUL's) standards. and that all judgements should be
 made by the SOUL. THe 'SOUL' that YOU truly are.

 "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body BUT CANNOT KILL

 Can this teaching of JESUS be not more clear?

 Here JESUS teaches that we are in FACT, dual beings and that the
 man of flesh is secondary (in the eternal view)


 All souls are GOD's CHILDREN And GOD's CHILDREN are not alone.

Jesus said: But what did he mean?

  HYPOTHETICAL impressions about exoteric and esoteric
  meanings in the teachings of Jesus.

  This is a HYPOTHETICAL EXERCISE ONLY and there is no claim
  whatsoever as to this being absolute truth.

  However, it must be attempted.

  The choice of teachings was made easily, the most difficult
  teaching seems to be calling out to this awakened soul; to
  be brought out into the light, mostly because everyone
  talks about Jesus' teachings but no one ever really talks
  about this one.

      EXOTERIC TEACHING OF JESUS                                                            

  John 6:53 "If you do not eat the flesh of The Son of Man
  and drink his blood, you will not have life in yourselves."

                                          WHAT IF


    eat the flesh                                               hear the word

    drink his blood                                          understand his teaching

  The sentence in this teaching would then read as follows;

  'If you do not HEAR THE WORD of the SON OF MAN (JESUS) and
  UNDERSTAND HIS TEACHING, you will not have life in yourselves'.

  John 6:54 "Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has
  eternal life, and I will raise him to life on the last day."

  Using the same  WHAT IFs  as above, the teaching in John 6:54
  would read as follows:

  'Whoever hears my word and understands my teaching has eternal
  life and I will raise him to life on the last day'. (The last
  day being the end of the age)

  John 6:55 "For my flesh is the real food: my blood is the
  real drink."
                                     WHAT IF:

  The food Jesus speaks of  ( EXOTERICALLY )  in the above teaching
  really means TRUTH!  (ESOTERICALLY)  And - WHAT IF: DRINK,
  being  used here as a noun  (exoterically)  - means FOOD?  (esoterically)

  Still using the esoteric WHAT  IFs  in the former teachings, the
  above teaching will read as follows:

  'For my WORD is the real TRUTH: My TEACHING is the real FOOD'.

  John 6:56 "Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives
  in me and I live in him."

  Previous exercises make this teaching already known,
  (Hypothetically of course) - and would read as follows:

  'Whoever hears my word and understands my teaching lives in me and
  I live in them'.

  Expressing this hardest of all of Jesus' teachings, as percieved
  by the awakened soul,- This teaching would read as follows:

 John 6:53 (Hypothetically) 'If you do not HEAR THE WORD of the
 you will not have life in yourselves'.

 John 6:54 (Hypothetically)'Whoever hears my word and understands
 my teaching has eternal life and I will raise him to life on the
 last day'. (The last day being the end of the age)

 John 6:55 (Hypothetically) 'For my WORD is the real TRUTH: My
 TEACHING is the real FOOD'.

 John 6:56 (Hypothetically) 'Whoever hears my word and understands
 my teaching lives in me and I live in them'.

 The words Jesus spoke were parables and the parables contain a
 hidden meaning. The words of Jesus are directed to the soul which is
 a child of God. The soul you are is God's child and God loves his

 Study the words of Jesus as the soul you are and not as EGO.
 EGO can not read between the lines.
 The true-man (SOUL) once awakened,  perceives the magic of  the
 living word and is lifted beyond belief to knowledge of our living and
 very active Heavenly Father.
 Only the words of Jesus can awaken the sleeping soul.

 Remember, you do not possess a SOUL  - YOU ARE SOUL!!!

Who Prays When You Pray

  Luke 11:2-4
  JESUS said to them.
  "When you pray, say this:
    May your holy name be honoured;
    may your Kingdom come.
    Give us day by day the food we need.
    Forgive us our sins,
      for we forgive everyone who does us wrong.
    And do not bring us to hard testing.'"


  The question here is this.

  Who is praying here, EGO or SOUL?

  The US and the WE are PLURAL.
  Plural means more than ONE.

  So, Who is this ( WE ) and ( US ) as we pray?
  Further, Who is the (ONE) praying for the (US)
  The first sentence says, "When YOU pray, say this:"
  Jesus is speaking to the true-man here. ( SOUL )

  It is soul that prays to God on behalf of the physical
  man, as well as for itself here in the physical world.

  God is Spirit and has no ear for the physical man and
  his endless wants and needs.

  When soul prays to it's Heavenly Father, It prays for
  the physical man as well.

  Jesus DID NOT SAY - that we should pray, - 'Give ( ME )
  day by day. the food ( I ) need.'

  Jesus DID NOT SAY - that we should pray, - 'Forgive ( ME )
  ( MY ) sins.

  Jesus DID NOT SAY - that we should pray, - 'For ( I )
  forgive everyone who does ( ME ) wrong.'

  And finally, JESUS DID NOT SAY - that we should pray, -
  'And do not bring ( ME ) to hard testing'.

  Remember always. You do not possess a soul - you are soul!

  When someone says - 'MY SOUL' - This is EGo talking.

  Jesus was fully aware of the dual nature of human beings.
  Jesus came to save the true-man, the SOUL YOU ARE!

Monday, March 21, 2011


 JESUS SAID: ( When speaking to his disciples )

 JOHN 6:63 "What gives life is God's Spirit: man's power
 is of no use at all. The words I have spoken to you bring
 God's life-giving Spirit."

 JOHN 6:64 "Yet some of you do not believe."

 JOHN 6:65 "This is the very reason I told you that NO ONE
 can come to me unless the Father makes it possible for him
 to do so."

     Just a little faith can go a long way

 IF you do not believe in GOD,
 Then you have no faith in you.
 Without faith, that there is a GOD!
 you can never be presented to the SON.
 Not being guided to JESUS, - is to remain
 the sleeping soul that you currently are.
 Only The words of JESUS,
 can awaken the true-man.
 Only faith; that there is a God,
 will prompt the Father,
 to guide you to His Son.

 JESUS SAID: ( When praying for his disciples )

 JOHN 17:9 "I pray for them. I do not pray for the world
 But for those you gave me, for they belong to you."

 JOHN 17:20 "I pray not only for them, but also for those
 who believe in me because of their message.

 Jesus and Jesus only should be followed.
 Who could possibly be more important to listen to, to study,
 The Son of God  - or - men?
 Jesus came to save God's children,  - the soul - that you are.

 Remember, when you say  - 'MY SOUL' - this is EGO thinking!
 EGO does not have a soul!  --  YOU ARE SOUL.

What does the parable of the hidden treasure mean?

 The parable of the Hidden Treasure

 Mathew 13:44
 " The kingdom of heaven is like this. A man happens
 to find a treasure hidden in a field. He covers it
 up again, and is so happy that he goes and sells
 everything he has, and then goes back and buys that

 This parable; read by the ego; means what it says
 but what it means to the awakened soul is entirely


 In his explanation of the parable of the weeds in
 the field; Mathew 13:38; Jesus states quite plainly
 that when he refers to the FIELD; what he really
 means is the WORLD; So the treasure isn't hidden in
 a field anymore, it is hidden in the world.

 Furthermore, How can someone BUY a world?
 What is the treasure?
 What would make the man so happy that he would sell
 everything he has to BUY that world?

 This changing of a word here and there in this parable
 can be interesting; to say the least.
 What if; (the treasure) really meant (knowledge).
 what if; (sells everything) really meant (rejects).
 What if; (buys) really meant (Accepts).
 what if; (hidden) really meant (secret).

 This is a lot of what ifs; but, Let's  put the parable
 back together with these what ifs and it will read as

 The secret knowledge is the truth about who and what
 the true-man is. Knowledge that can only be fully
 understood by the awakened soul; who in fact can only
 be awakened by Jesus.

 Once God's world has become truth; and the true-man has
 become aware of who (he-she) is; Then, this world; the
 physical world, has no more allure to it. The physical
 world is perceived for what it is, a temporary place;
 and ordained to end.

 And so to summarize this ( hypothetical exercise )

 The Kingdom of GOD is like this:
 The eternal child of GOD; knowingly rejects the false
 for the real; the real being God's world, the spirit
 world, the Kingdom of God. The false being the finite
 physical world.

 The awakened soul will reject the phycical world.
 The awakened soul will accept God's world because the
 awakened soul knows the truth of  itself.

 Genesis 2:7 - And God proceeded to (FORM) the (MAN) out of dust
 from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of (LIFE),
 and the (MAN) came to be a (LIVING SOUL)

 Here we see that the 'MAN' or 'SOUL', made in the image and likeness
 of GOD, had no form in the physical world, until GOD used the physical
 world (the dust of the ground) to give the spirit-soul form and
 visibility in the physical world.

 Life is then given to the -'MAN'-  by GOD blowing into his nostrils,
 'THE BREATH OF LIFE'.  Then and only then did the 'MAN' come to be a

 GOD alone is the 'ONE LIFE"! - GOD is in us! -  Our very 'LIFE SOURCE  ( IS )

 YES!  -  We are  DUAL- BEINGS, -  ONE foot in the physical world  and  ONE
 foot in GOD's world.
 We human beings are complicated creatures, especially to ourselves.
 Jesus came to tell us  TRUTH .- The  TRUTH  that - GOD  IS!  - And  to  make  our

 Jesus said. John  4:24
 "God is Spirit, and - ONLY - by the power of  his Spirit can people
 worship him as he really is."

 Jesus said. John  6:63
 "What gives life is God's spirit: man's power is of no use at all.
 The WORDS - I have spoken to you  -BRING - GOD's - LIFE GIVING SPIRIT."

 Jesus said. John  4: 32
 "I have food to eat that you know nothing about."

  Food for the soul - The word of GOD! The words of JESUS!!!

Why Did Jesus speak in parables?

 Why did Jesus use parables when he spoke to the people?

 Jesus answered this question asked by his closest disciples
 in the books of  MATTHEW - MARK 4:10-12  AND  LUKE 8:9-10

 MATTHEW 13: (13) " The reason I use parables in talking to
 them is that they look, but do not see, and they listen, but
 do not hear or understand. (14) So that the prophecy of Isaiah
 applies to them :

(Jesus spoke in parables to fulfill the prophecy of Isaiah which
 reads as follows.)

 Mathew 13:(14) 'This people will listen and listen but not
                            they will look and look, but not see.
                   (15)   because their minds are dull.
                            and they have stopped up their ears
                            and have closed their eyes.
                            Otherwise, their eyes would see,
                            their ears would hear,
                            their minds would understand,
                            and they would turn to me, says God,
                            and I would heal them.'

 We are all God's children, the problem with God's children today
 is the same problem mankind has been wrestling with since the
 garden of Eden. Our collective problem is EGO.

 Ego is the reason:   We look and look, but not see!

 EGO is the reason:  We listen and listen, but do not hear or

 EGO is the reason:  Our minds are dull!

 EGO is the reason:  We do not turn to GOD!

 EGO is the reason:  For all the chaos we presently experience!

 How Ego comes to be was explained earlier in the message titled

The parable of the weeds in the field

 The second parable that Jesus explained was the parable of the weeds.

 The parable of the weeds can be found in mathew 13: 24-30 and reads
 as follows:

 Mathew 13-(24) Jesus told them another parable: "The Kingdom of heaven
 is like this. A man sowed good seed in his field. (25) One night, when
 everyone was asleep, an enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and
 went away. (26) When the plants grew and the wheat began to form, then
  the weeds showed up. (27) The man's servants came to him and said.
 'Sir, it was good seed you sowed in your field; Where did the weeds come
 from?' (28) 'It was some enemy who did this, 'he answered. 'Do you want
 us to go and pull up the weeds? ' they asked him. (29) 'No,'  he answered,
 'because as you gather the weeds you might pull up some of the wheat
 along with them. (30) Let the wheat  and the weeds both grow together
 untill harvest. Then I will tell the harvest workers to pull up the
 weeds first, tie them in bundles and burn them, and then to gather in
 the wheat and put it in my barn.'"

 This is the exoteric teaching.
 To the sleeping soul, it means exactly what it states.
 To the awakened soul, it means something different.
 Even Jesus' disciples didn't understand the teaching of this parable.
 So Jesus explained it to them as follows:

 Mathew 13:37-43 (37) Jesus answered, "The man who sowed the good seed
 is the Son of Man; (38) The field is the world: the good seed is the
 people who belong to the Kingdom: the weeds are the people who belong
 to the evil one; (39) and the enemy who sowed the weeds is the devil.
 The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvest workers are angels.
 (40) Just as the weeds are gathered up and burnt in the fire, so the
 same thing will happen at the end of the age: (41) The Son of Man will
 send out his angels to gather up out of  his Kingdom all those who cause
 people to sin and all others who do evil things, (42) and they will
 throw them into the fiery furnace, where they will cry and grind their teeth."
 (43) Then God's people will shine like the sun in their Father's
 Kingdom. Listen, then, if you have ears!"

 Jesus' explaination of the parable of the weeds in the field brings his
 teaching out of the dark and into the light for many a lost soul. One
 could say It is the esoteric version.

 It was while reading this - explaination of the parable of the weeds in
 the field, that this particular soul, was born again of the spirit.
 Hopefully it will happen to everyone who reads it.

 The good seed are the awakened souls that Jesus has awakened.
 The weeds are the sleeping souls, put to sleep in this, the physical
 world by the EGO and it's endless desire to indulge in it.

 The fact that Jesus is sending his angels to do the harvesting at the
 end of the age, is mind expanding - in the sense that, angels are spirit beings!
 Surely, spirit angels, are not coming to save the pre-ordained  doomed man
 of flesh and blood , into the spirit Kingdom of God. (obviously not)

 The angels of the Son of Man are coming for the true-man.
 The true-man - the real man, - The soul - you are!
 Remember - You do not possess a soul - YOU ARE SOUL!

 Jesus was not lying when he said. John 14:6  "I am the way, the truth, and
 the life; NO ONE goes to the Father except by me."

The parable of the sower

 The Parables of Jesus:

 The parable of the sower

 Mathew 13:3-9  (3)  He used parables to tell them many things.
 "Once there was a man who went out to sow corn. (4) As he
 scattered the seed in the field, some of it fell along the
 path, and the birds came and ate it up. (5) Some of it fell
 on rocky ground, where there was little soil. The seeds soon
 sprouted, because the soil wasn't very deep. (6) But when
 the sun came up, it burnt the young plants; and because the
 roots had not grown deep enough, the plants soon dried up.
 (7) Some of the seeds fell among thorn bushes, which grew up
 and choked the plants. (8) But some seeds fell in good soil,
 and the plants produced corn: some produced a hundred grains,
 others sixty, and others thirty," (9) And Jesus concluded,
 "Listen, then, if you have ears!"

 This is the 'parable of the sower'. The parables held dual
 meanings. If the true man was listening, he would receive a
 completely different message than would be received by the
 shadow-man, EGO!

 The parable of the sower is one of only two parables that
 are explained in the gospels. The parable of the sower is
 explained in Mathew 13:18-23. This explaination is what
 an awakened soul would understand from the teaching and
 reads as follows.

 Jesus explains the 'parable of the sower'.

 Mathew 13:(18)"Listen then and learn what the parable of
 the sower means. (19) Those who hear the message about the
 kingdom but do not understand it are like the seeds that
 fell along the path. The evil one comes and snatches away
 what was sown in them. (20) The seeds that fell on rocky
 ground stand for those who receive the message gladly as
 soon as they hear it. (21) But it does not sink deep into
 them ,and they don't last long. So when trouble or
 persecution comes because of the message, they give up at
 once. (22) The seeds that fell among the thorn bushes
 stand for those who hear the message; but the worries about
 this life and the love for riches choke the message, and
 they don't bear fruit. (23) And the seeds sown in the good
 soil stand for those who hear the message and understand it:
 they bear fruit, some as much as a hundred, others sixty,
 and others thirty

This then is the explaination of the parable of the sower:

 The seed is the message!

 The message is about the reality of the kingdom of God.

 Peoples receptiveness to the message are referred to as
 states of soil  ( states of mind ) - receptive - to the seed, ( message )
 Only a perfect state of mind can receive the message.

 (1) People of the pathway! - Just as a seed that falls on a pathway
 would inevitably get trampled upon and have no chance
 to grow, the people referred to as 'the path' have no
 chance to understand the message. They are simply not
 equiped mentally to understand.
 The evil one is EGO.

 (2) The people of the rocky ground - Just as a seed planted on rocky
 ground can not root deeply and therefore can not grow to maturity,
 The people referred to as rocky ground can not hold the message
 because the message does not root in their minds,

 (3) The people of the thorns! - Just as the seed that is planted
 amongst thorn bushes would inevitably be choked off and either
 stunted or killed, the people referred to as seeds among the
 thorn bushes are not capable of holding the message. Their love
 for the physical world is greater than their love for truth.
 The truth being that GOD IS!

 (4) The people of the fertile soil! - Just as the seed that is planted
 in fertile soil responds to it's perfect place to grow and bloom, so,
 the message that falls on receptive ears shall awaken the true man.
 Once awakened the true man shall bear fruit by going out and telling
 the message of the kingdom of God to any soul with ears to hear.

 And so, we can see by the explaination of the parable of the sower
 that there is a secret meaning to the teachings of Jesus.

 When Jesus said, "Let those with ears hear!" what he really meant was,
 Let souls with ears hear! The awakened soul hears the words of Jesus.
 The words of Jesus are meant for the soul.
 You do not posess a soul - YOU ARE SOUL!!!

why is Jesus called the Son of Man?

 Jesus is called the Son of Man because Jesus
 is the co-creator of man.

 Genesis: 1-26  Reads as follows;
 And God went on to say: "Let US make man in OUR image,
 according to OUR likeness."

 The key words here are 'US' and 'OUR'.
 PLural - more than one!

 Father and Son created 'Man' together.

 God is the Heavenly Father of Man,
 and therefore,- his Son - is the Son of Man.
 Co-creators of mankind!

 Jesus was not telling tall tales when he said in:
 John: 8-58 "I am telling you the truth: before Abraham
 was born, I am."

 The Book of John begins as follows and states quite clearly.

 John 1 - (1) "Before the world was created, the Word already
 existed: he was with God, and he was the same as God. (2) From
 the very beginning the Word was with God. (3) Through him God
 made all things: not one thing in all creation was made
 without him. (4) The Word was the source of life, and this
 life brought light to mankind. (5) The light shines in the
 darkness, and the darkness has never put it out."

 God is spirit. Man is made in his image and likeness.
 The real Man is therefore spirit.
 The spirit soul within the flesh is the true Man.
 You are soul.

What does it mean to be born again?

 Being born again:

 You are instantaneously re-born when GOD makes hIS presense known to you.

 Being born again, you behold the true-man - the soul you are!

 Suddenly spontaneously, magically, you have a brand new awareness.

 You are able to perceive the living GOD in action.

 You know that the true you is the spirit soul and not the man in the mirror.

 You know you are a child of GOD because the living GOD has had an active role
 in your re-birth.

 You know that GOD himself is your 'Heavenly Father.

 You know that Jesus is the messiah because your re-birth happened magically
 through him.

 You know that Jesus is the logos - (begotten son of the living GOD)

 The most humbling moment of all is when you come to know that, not only does
 GOD truly exist, but that he cares for, and loves, little old you.

 Being born again is beholding a new world,(GOD's world) and knowing it.

 Being born again, means that you no longer cling to faith in GOD, because now
 you know that GOD is real.

 Being born again, belief is no longer required, for now, you know!

 Being born again is knowing that your 'Heavenly Father' is always with you.

 Being born again is knowing that everyone, (whether they know it or not?) is
 your brother. (spiritually)

 An awakened soul sees and understands his lost brothers in all their innocence.

 Being born again is perception that all life is GOD's life.

 Being born again is finally having a true life in a true world.

 An awakened soul judges no one. - Pure awareness makes no judgements.

 An awakened soul is fearless!

 Being born again, is to look through soul's eyes, to hear with soul's ears,
 to feel with soul's heart, for your once dormant spiritual senses are now

 Being born again, the living word, of the living GOD, becomes your spiritual

 Being born again puts the physical world in context; suddenly you understand
 the WHY of the CHAOS.

 Being born again, you confront the phantom within; (EGO).

 Being born again, ego is perceived for what it is: The shadow of the true-life.

 Being born again is lonely, in this, the physical world.

 Being born again can be extremely frustrating, in this, the physical world.

 Being born again can be ever so sad - until you realize how truly blessed you are.

 Being born again, you are both humbled and lifted beyond belief!

 Being born again, is to love GOD more than anything and anyone, and this is a
 logical, reasonable, natural coming to fruition event.

 Being born again, you have much work to do. You have a vocation!

What did Jesus mean; Mark 12:17

 What did Jesus mean when he said;
 "Pay the Emperor what belongs to the Emperor,
 And pay GOD what belongs to GOD."

 Jesus came to speak to the true-man.

 God's children must cope with two worlds - and walk a fine line
 between the two.
 This is the message (between the lines) that Jesus conveys to
 the true-man in Mark 12:17 and Matthew 22:21

 An awakened soul understands the dual nature of it's existence.
 The true-man is the spirit soul, and a child of GOD.

 Jesus always spoke in parables.
 The parables carried hidden truths within them.
 These truths were directed to the true-man - the soul.
 Only the awakened soul hears these truths.

 As Jesus said,
 John 10:4 "The sheep follow him, because they know his voice."

 Again, a parable.-- the sheep being the true man, and the voice
 of the shepherd, the word of GOD.

What did Jesus mean --Matthew 26:41

 What was Jesus trying to tell us?  Matthew 26:41

   "Keep watch and pray that you will not fall into temptation.
   The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."

   What was Jesus trying to tell us?

   Here Jesus tells us that we are dual beings.
   One part Spirit and one part flesh!

   Further to this, the two beings; spirit and flesh, are of two wills.

   It is obvious that Jesus was directing these words to the true-man,
   the spirit soul within the flesh!

   Did the spirit-son of the great spirit--GOD--come to save the man of
   flesh or the the true-man?

   The answer is again obvious.

   He came to save the spirit soul inside the flesh.

   He came to save the soul - Which was, and is, created in the image
   and likeness of GOD.

   The simple truth is that everything in the physical world dies and
   fades away.

   Nothing in the physical world is eternal.

   So why pray tell would Jesus come to save the doomed man of flesh?

   He didn't!

   He came to save the real-man, the true-man, the child of GOD,
   The soul!
