Christians & Word of God
This is how it works. When Christians study the Bible, they are actually teaching God’s words to others.
By studying the Bible, Christians are teaching the Word of God to other people. This is how The Bible was put together.
The scribes and Pharisees studied the Scriptures daily. They copied the Word into their languages and were very particular about the way in which it was applied. For example in the original Greek language the word ‘phraces’ means ‘play-acting’. This is why the Greeks liked the words ‘phrases’, ‘spoken words’ or ‘symbols’ so much. This is how the Greeks and Egyptians, two of the major cultures of the Ancient World, memorized Scripture. It comes from the same language and it is easy to translate the words by using the letters of the alphabet and performing an equivalent action.
The Jews have the same method. As explained by Jesus in the Scripture, a man or woman is able to memorize thousands of verses of Scripture by merely atmospancing them, understanding the hidden meaning, and then teaching it to others.
It is not hard these days to find people who still take the Bible literally. There are a lot of ‘Bible experts’ who can recite hundreds of verses from it. But do they have an understanding of what they are saying? It can be totally meaningless to them.
Ever since the days of Christ many of His followers have taken the Bible literally. When He directed His disciples to gather the scriptures in a day, they took it literally. All those years of learning the scriptures they did not realize that they were actually placing their faith in the knowledge of words, understanding the hidden message and they thought they were being obedient to God.
They put their faith in Jesus instead of putting it into the proper context of the scriptures which had been misunderstood by their disciples. They put their faith in the knowledge of the Prophets instead of His words. The importance of understanding the Prophetic words and where they originated from is just as important as knowing Jesus.
When Jesus said, “I and my Father are One,” he assured his followers that in essence, that was true. That same sense of ‘oneness’ is the true meaning of our Christian belief. Everything Jesus wanted to convey by way of the Scriptures and by way of signs and wonders, was being conveyed by way of the signs and wonders.
The Holy Spirit is to be the Spirit of Truth and the Spirit of the Angels. He will teach us exactly what the Bible is saying. Through signs and wonders, the signs and wonders will become even more pronounced. The universe will speak back to the words spoken. Through the hearing of the Holy Spirit, the universe will speak.
Cross-wired together in the same way that all the atoms of the universe are one, is a universe of individual units of consciousness. A ‘ Cyrus in the Field ‘ is a field of one thousand units of consciousness all operating in harmony with each other.
Take the seven units of consciousness as an example. There is the unit of self-consciousness, there is the unit of joy, there is the unit of devotion, there is the unit of wisdom and there is the unit of the Holy Spirit. When these seven units come together they form an army called the ‘Self’. There are then another seven units of consciousness called the ‘elligences’ or ‘Angels’ that serve these seven general groups of consciousnesses. There are then another seven units of intelligence called the ‘Dharma’, or the seven groups of Essence that constitute all creation.
Everybody, plant, and insect has its own set of organs, traditions, histories, and sciences. But these seven ‘creatures’ have no sense of organization between them. They literally blossomed to life, from one form to another, and continued in that pattern of blooming in the present form. The further they brush off the consciousness, the older, and the less functional they become.
When the ‘creative Dad’s stick to the Psalms of Moses, the saying of which is: ‘what a son you have! Look how he satisfies his mother’, meaning that because of the many vows each one has taken in the temple, the body is the expression of that vow to God, so that the body, the body without the soul, is as good as dead. The soul is in essence uninterestingly following the ideas, feelings, and thoughts of its creator. The soul is that part of Man that is free. It is the undefinable ‘something’ spoken of in the Vedas and that is the mere beginning of the story.
The soul is but one link in the chain of our evolution.
