A Most Mysterious Temple
The Greatest Secret
THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST
This is from my book “MYSTERY OF CHRIST”
I would hope that everyone would attempt to totally disprove what is written here. Show where Christ refutes it all, or He did not say it, or that He did not mean it. Not by your “theology”, or your “bias” or your “opinion” but rather by hard Scriptural statements. You eternal salvation depends upon it…
There is no way that anyone who is intellectually and scripturally honest can deny that Jesus Christ was in fact a Gnostic and that He demanded that his followers to become Gnostics as well. What has happened is quite simple really, a stroke of genius on the part of Satan – that is, REMOVE THE ONE ELEMENT necessary for Salvation, that is this Gnostic encounter, and call it Satanic so the Christians will steer well away from it. That they have done, and Satan has won the war. After all, if you leave the rest of the doctrines in place, you can build a Church of TOTAL CONTROL over the people, telling all of them they are saved and going to heaven, when the opposite is the truth.
Modern Christianity is violently opposed to any form of Gnostic concept because it removes the power of the Church over the individual. The modern form of Christianity is no different than the earlier Catholic Church, which is a power structure designed to keep all of the “believers” under the thumb of their power, to extract as much money as they could by any method they could, and it is still true today. If a believer actually begins to understand what is going on, and they follow the commands of the Lord in truth, they will soon be removed from any modern Christian denomination.
The reason for this is that Satan holds sway over the church today, and it is filled with the “many” whom are not overcomers, but are in fact the “tares”, and it pushes the real overcomers out because they do not want to hear the testimony of truth.
“You ask to many questions,” or “you keep asking questions that we cannot answer, and you keep pointing out inconsistencies and contradictions, you would be better off going to another Church”, and so they show you the door. Nothing has changed. Nothing will, as the True Church of Jesus Christ will end the same way it began – in very tiny gatherings of 2-10 people in their homes, totally away from the satanically driven apostate monster that Christianity has become.
The prophecies of the Bible concerning the state of affairs in the modern Church have come true, but most people do not actually realize JUST HOW TRUE, for even those who claim they are the remnant seem to have no clue as to what Jesus Christ actually requires of them for they have NO TESTIMONY CONCERNING IT.
2 Tim 4:2-5
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
“For the time will come when they SHALL NOT endure sound doctrine.” That time has been here for a long time now, but it is getting far worse as time goes on. The REAL TRUTH, as we have presented to you by the WORDS OF CHRIST ALONE is actually rejected as an anathema. This is very hard to understand, because these people, most of whom claim to be preachers, teachers and evangelists, state that they STAND UPON THE SCRIPTURES, and further believe EVERY WORD. We have shown you they do not. They are doing exactly what prophecy said they would.
Notice that it says that the flock of “sheep to be sheered”, have “itching ears” and heap to themselves TEACHERS WHO WILL GLADLY PREACH THIS FALSE GOSPEL AND COLLECT DONATIONS WHILE DOING IT. The people LOVE to have it so, and they cannot wait for the next false doctrine that satisfies their every lust and worldly endeavors. The money pours in and these liars and deceivers become wealthy beyond imagination, promising heaven to all those that believe them. THEIR DAMNATION SLUMBERS NOT. Thus they are turned UNTO FABLES, that is, LIES AND DECEPTIONS, with a salvation gospel that is an absolute lie. That is why Peter said that they bring DAMNABLE HERESIES, and anything that is damnable, that is causes your damnation, has to be involved with salvation doctrine.
They will not abide by the truth whatsoever, that is, they embrace these lies and call them THE REAL TRUTH, and when the REAL TRUTH IS PREACHED TO THEM, they call that A LIE, and they react with great anger and cannot abide by it whatsoever. Is that not exactly what is happening today? It is simply a REVERSAL.
Now then we find this:
2 Tim 3:5-9
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.
If you will search it out, you will find that behind the scenes in many a popular ministry is adultery, fornicators, and all sorts of ungodly behavior, but they present themselves as having a form of godliness, that is, they appear to be ambassadors of the Lord.
They do, in many cases, lead the women in their congregations astray, teaching them all sorts of heresies. Notice that they RESIST THE REAL TRUTH, and they have REPROBATE MINDS, CORRUPT MINDS, and have no real knowledge of the real truth and true godliness. Obviously they do not KNOW who Christ really is, another confirmation that they never came into a Gnostic encounter. They claim any such encounter is a heresy.
Notice also that these people are EVER LEARNING, and NOT ABLE TO COME TO A KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH as to WHO IS JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF REALLY IS, for that can only happen if He MANIFESTS HIMSELF to the believer who is obedient. This is a very interesting remark, in that these people are EVER LEARNING, but for some reason they cannot come to a knowledge of the real truth. The word is “epignosis” and it means this, as stated previously, but it so important to understand.
3. epiginosko (
<END GREEK>, NT:1921) denotes (a) “to observe, fully perceive, notice attentively, discern, recognize” (epi, “upon,” and No. 1); it suggests generally a directive, a more special, recognition of the object “known” than does No. 1; it also may suggest advanced “knowledge” or special appreciation; thus, in Rom 1:32, “knowing the ordinance of God” (epiginosko) means “knowing full well,” whereas in verse 21 “knowing God” (ginosko) simply suggests that they could not avoid the perception. Sometimes epiginosko implies a special participation in the object “known,” and gives greater weight to what is stated; thus in John 8:32, “ye shall know the truth,” ginosko is used, whereas in 1 Tim 4:3, “them that believe and know the truth,” epiginosko lays stress on participation in the truth. Cf. the stronger statement in Col 1:6 (epiginosko) with that in 2 Cor 8:9 (ginosko), and the two verbs in 1 Cor 13:12, “now I know in part (ginosko); but then shall I know (piginosko) even as also I have been known (epiginosko),” “a knowledge” which perfectly unites the subject with the object; (b) “to discover, ascertain, determine,” e. g., Luke 7:37; 23:7; Acts 9:30; 19:34; 22:29; 28:1; in 24:11 the best mss. have this verb instead of No. 1; hence the RV, “take knowledge.” J. Armitage Robinson (on Ephesians) points out that epignosis is “knowledge directed towards a particular object, perceiving, discerning,” whereas gnosis is knowledge in the abstract. See ACKNOWLEDGE.
(from Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words, Copyright © 1985, Thomas Nelson Publishers.)
To boil it down, it means simply that these people never came to BEHOLD WHAT MANNER OF LOVE THAT THE FATHER HAS BESTOWED UPON US. Because Christ is a SPIRIT and that SPIRIT IS DIVINE AGAPE, then it should be obvious that these people never came into contact with Christ, and therefore they have no clue as to who He really is. These are they that are sent away in Matthew Seven. This brings us to another remark of our Lord:
39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
41 I receive not honour from men.
42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
This is just another of those “Gnostic” type of verses that tell you that the Scripture is NOT JESUS CHRIST, but rather is TESTIMONY of what He did, who He was in the abstract, that is, Redeemer and Messiah, but you will NOT AT ALL find eternal life in the Bible.
The Bible is simply a BOOK, it is paper and ink. It is an instruction manual, and if one follows the instructions, then they will have eternal life, and if they do not, they won’t! The Bible does not contain THE LIVING CHRIST, it is only a testimony ABOUT CHRIST. Notice that He says YOU WILL NOT COME TO ME THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE LIFE. Notice also that He says COME TO HIM, and not just BELIEVE IN HIM, OR HAVE FAITH IN HIM.
Jesus told us that LIFE was at the end of the NARROW WAY, so obviously coming to Christ IN TRUTH, can only be done via the narrow way, for there is no other way offered the human race. In point of fact, GRACE brought us a strait gate and a narrow way, and we deserve neither.
Modern Christians usually will claim they believe and accept, for example, John 3:16, and because they believe that, and accept that, then they are saved. Jesus Christ is NOT John 3:16. Also notice that Jesus said that these frauds seek honor one from another – and that is exactly what they are doing, even in the prophetic circles. Only key and popular people get to speak at these “conferences,” radio programs or TV programs, and these folks are LIFTED UP and that “draws the crowds” in who hang on every word. There is no dissent allowed from their accepted prophetic or salvation “agenda”. They seek honor and seats of honor among themselves, and these are they who DO NOT seek the honor of God, which can only be received by DOING THE WILL OF THE FATHER.
This is the will of the Father:
39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Is this not clear enough? The word “seeth” is: “theoreo”, and it means: “to be a spectator of”, to behold, to acknowledge”. It is virtually the same as “manifest” or “reveal”. It is therefore the WILL OF THE FATHER THAT WE BECOME A SPECTATOR OF CHRIST, that is, He will MANIFEST HIMSELF TO US, and WE WILL LOOK UPON HIM, BE A SPECTATOR OF HIM, and by that method, we will KNOW WHO HE IS!!!
The will of the Father is abundantly clear as to first things first. That is to FIRST OF ALL SEEK THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS above all other things in one’s life. The righteousness of God is HIS DIVINE LOVE, which in turn runs behavior, and right behavior becomes earthly righteousness.
When Paul said that ALL OF THE LAW is fulfilled by DIVINE LOVE, he told us why: It seeks no ill against any neighbor, but rather, seeks to help a neighbor. Divine Agape within the heart leads to a behavior that helps, not hurts those around them, AND BECOMES THE RIGHTEOUS DEEDS OF THE TRUE SAINTS, who seek no hurt to anyone.
The salvation of the human soul is so important that one would think it was a top priority of every living person on Earth, but the opposite is the actual truth of the matter. It is not a priority at all and is actually the last thing on their minds.
The commands of the Lord to FIRST SEEK THE KINGDOM OF GOD fall on deaf ears. Having ears to hear, they cannot hear, and having eyes to see, they cannot see. The real truth is scoffed at, ridiculed and mocked. It is exactly as our Lord said it would be.
More Gnostic concepts are found in the Scripture than not. The Old Testament is likewise filled with these types of encounters with the Divine, although many of them are not salvation related. But some are and here is one of them:
12 What man is he that feareth the Lord? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
13 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
14 The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
The covenant of the Lord is a SECRET. IT IS HIDDEN. And only those that FEAR THE LORD will be shown what the covenant really is. Inasmuch as the Lord is a Spirit of Divine Love, then this COVENANT IS THE COVENANT OF DIVINE AGAPE. Notice what the Lord says: He will SHOW HIS COVENANT TO THOSE THAT FEAR THE LORD. We could say that those who really fear the Lord obey Him and do what He tells them. Further, the Lord says THIS COVENANT IS A SECRET, HIDDEN AWAY, and only shown to the elect. What is this hidden covenant? DIVINE AGAPE. Here is how we can prove it from the Old Testament:
33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
What is this law?
25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
The Spirit of the Lord is Divine Agape. So this is a reference to being BORN AGAIN found in the Old Testament. The Lord never changes; He is the same yesterday, today, tomorrow and forever. Jesus said this:
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
So millions of Christians are being lied to. Interesting to say the least. 148
