DO YOU BELIEVE ???
…THE WHOLE STORY MUST BE BELIEVED.
Consider this part in the Gospel of Matthew which describes what was happening when Jesus died on the cross.
Matthew 27:51 – “And, behold, the veil of the temple was split in two from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks broke apart, And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose. And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.”
DO YOU STILL BELIEVE?
Do you believe that dead people got out of graves, and walked downtown to Jerusalem and introduced themselves to many people there ?
Can you imagine such a thing ?
CRAWLING THEIR WAY OUT OF GRAVES
COVERED WITH MUD
People who had been buried, bursting out of the ground like some kind of zombie, dusting the dirt off, straightening their grave clothes, and hitch hiking down a highway to town where they start shaking hands (or whatever they had) with the locals.
DO YOU HONESTLY STILL BELIEVE?
Well if you don’t believe that ,you can’t believe any of it because it is part of the same story.
You have to consider all of the story.
IT IS A BEAUTIFUL MYTHOLOGY
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE CONCERNED
ABOUT A BLOOD THIRSTY GOD
This is a wonderful mythology that we can only understand when we are finally willing to abandon the religious blasphemy that claims God is incapable of a simple act of forgiveness without requiring a human sacrifice.
IT NEVER HAPPENED
BUT IT DOES HAPPEN EVERY DAY
If we understand the truth of crucifixion, we will understand the truth of new life, which as Jesus said, is closer then our breath, within us.
THE SOUTHERN CROSS
* THE CRUCIFIXION
Probably the most difficult test to apply ones faith and still entertain reason and logic as part of the universal search.
Could it be that the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ is mythology?
IF THERE IS A HIDDEN MEANING?
WHAT HAVE WE MISSED?
What have we missed by considering it as literal.
* THE CRUCIFIXION
THE LIFE FORCE
What is the deep message hidden behind the words of the Crucifixion that are meant to be understood by the appearance of the Supernova, now observed in the universe and by the life force within each one of us.
We will look at that.
The first reaction from people when we suggest that the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ is a myth, is to be outraged.
The reason for their outrage is that they do not understand the nature of myth. They will say that we are insinuating that the crucifixion of Jesus did not occur. Not so.
MYTH DOES NOT MEAN THAT SOMETHING DID NOT HAPPEN
By understanding the myth helps us be able to celebrate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
Not as religion presents it to us literally, so that we are to consider a God that is not capable of forgiveness without resorting to torture and bloodshed.
* THIS IS A CRUCIFIXION
IN THE UNIVERSE
AND IN US
When we understand the myth, we will realize that this is a crucifixion of consciousness, acted out in the universe, and from within our bodies.
DEFINITION OF THE WORD MYTH
A story presented as historical, dealing with the cosmological and supernatural traditions of a people and their God.
In other words, a myth makes a story seem historical, but it really has another meaning, which is cosmological, or supernatural.
* THE BIBLE AS SYMBOL
Our first order of business in this quest is to see if we can justify considering the Bible as symbolic rather then literal. We must use the Bible itself.
THE BIBLE ITSELF SAYS IT IS SYMBOLIC AND SHOULD
NOT BE TAKEN LITERALLY
2 Corinthians 3:6 – “Who also has made us ministers of the New Testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter kills, but the spirit gives life.”
So here is the Bible itself telling us not to take it literally.
* AGAIN THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT
STORIES ARE ALLEGORY
Galatians 4:24 – “Which things are an allegory:”
Remember that as we showed the definition of a myth, it included the term allegory.
Here again the Bible tells us it is symbolic.
THE BIBLE SAYS JESUS ALWAYS SPOKE SYMBOLICALLY
Matthew 13:34 – “All these things spoke Jesus to the multitude in parables; and without a parable he did not speak to them:”
The Bible is saying that all of Jesus statements were symbolic.
THE STORIES ALL HAVE HIDDEN MEANINGS
BUT TO UNDERSTAND THEM
YOU MUST ENTER WITHIN YOURSELF IN
MEDITATION AS JESUS INSTRUCTED
Mark 4:11 – “And he said to them, ‘Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but to them that are without, all these things are done in parables:’”
NOTICE THAT LINE ABOVE.
THEM THAT ARE WITHOUT DO NOT UNDERSTAND,
ONLY THEM THAT ARE WITHIN, WHO PRACTICE THE SINGLE
EYE AS JESUS INSTRUCTED
Here the fact that this is all consciousness is made clear.
It says to know the mystery of the Kingdom of God.
WITHOUT AND WITHIN
THIS IS WHAT THAT MEANS
Where is the Kingdom of God ?
Luke 17:21 – “Neither shall they say, here! or, there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”
THEM THAT ARE WITHOUT DO NOT
UNDERSTAND AND TAKE THIS LITERALLY
THEM THAT ARE WITHIN (MEDITATION) UNDERSTAND
Without means, outside of the meditative state.
It means outside of the inner realm of consciousness where exists the Kingdom of God.
THE OLD TESTAMENT SPEAKS OF THE SAME MYSTERY
Psalm 78:2 – “I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:”
Here the Bible states that GOD speaks in parables .
And what are dark sayings of old?
Obviously they are symbolic statements.
Finally the Book of Proverbs describes wisdom. It explains how one becomes wise.
TO HAVE WISDOM ONE MUST UNDERSTAND DARK SAYINGS
Proverbs 1:6 – “To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.”
OBVIOUSLY THE BIBLE SHOULD
NOT BE TAKEN LITERALLY
AND NEITHER SHOULD THE CRUCIFIXION
Thus we have substantial evidence throughout the Bible to suggest that it is a symbolic book, and should not be taken literally.
With this evidence, we can then proceed to look at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ as a symbolic story.
* JESUS AS A PICTURE OF THE SUN
* JESUS GREEK NAME
The first indication that we have that Jesus is actually a symbol of the Sun comes from the fact that the name Jesus is a Greek name.
IN GREEK MYTH
LETTERS REPRESENT NUMBERS
THAT HAVE MEANINGS
In Greek all of the letters of the alphabet have numerical values.
The Greek letters that make up the name Jesus, (ISEOUS), have a numerical value of 888 which in Greek is the number of the mythical sun.
Thus the name Jesus was created to apply to the center of this story because it means, the Sun, the light of the world.
The Sun in the Sky, also compares to the Solar Plexus energy in the human body.
* JESUS AND THE TRAJECTORY OF THE SUN
The story line surrounding the life of Jesus is remarkably similar to the trajectory of the Sun, which is actually perceived by the movement.
THE SUN BORN IN SEPTEMBER OF VIRGO * THE VIRGIN
Jesus is born of a Virgin, (The Sun is born in September , the 9th month out of the constellation Virgo, the Virgin.)
* THE CRUCIFIXION
* THE CONSTELLATION
* THE SOUTHERN CROSS
Jesus is crucified.
The Sun falling to its farthest southern point in the ecliptic
brought the attention of the ancients to the constellation,
The Southern Cross ,though the sun occupied Capricorn.
The Southern Cross in the southern hemisphere became
the focus of the crucifixion, when the sun made its apparent southern journey in what we know as the winter solstice.
*THE DAY OF DARKNESS
* THE DAY OF DARKNESS JESUS DIED
THERE WAS DARKNESS ON THE EARTH
At this time we encounter the shortest day of the year,
Dec 21 where there is more darkness then any other day.
* THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS
IN THE TOMB
Jesus is 3 days and 3 nights in the tomb.
The Sun is in the lowest part of the earth on
December 22, 23,and 24.
……. It is the winter solstice.
Three days and three nights are from there until #Christmas.
