The Book of Revelation is St. John's profound experience in Cosmic Consciousness. This meditation is open to all sincere seekers of God's beatific face. It is unfortunately used today, by many, as a justification for teaching sectarianism and even paranoia about world events. If you feel fear or uncertainty about the world around you, remember Jesus' teaching to seek the kingdom of God first. Do not be lead by others to hoard food and guns in your basement as a means to God union. God is advancing this world. Advance with it by concentrating on the best aspects of your religious practice; that is self-discovery of your true nature as the soul in relationship with God.

Rev 1:10
I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
(KJV)
Rev 1:12
And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
(KJV)

Rev 1:16
And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
(KJV)

Rev 1:20
The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
(KJV)

Rev 3:12
Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
(KJV)

Rev 3:20-21
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
(KJV)

Rev 14:2
And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
(KJV)

Rev 22:4-5
And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light:
and they shall reign for ever and ever.
(KJV)

Re: Quotes from The Bible [Re: dorkus]
    #3441977 - 12/03/04 01:36 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)



"Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." Luke 24:34 This request of Jesus is more than just for the moment of the crucifixion and for those that perpetrated that crime. It extended to all mankind throughout time and reveals the compassionate heart of God. How can any man have all the information and understanding necessary to know exactly what he is doing? The Book of Proverbs says that only God knows a man's way. Even a criminal does not know how he violates his own soul. The cosmic delusion (called Maya to the Hindus and Satan to Christians) disguises the ultimate reality of every soul's relationship with God. The restless mind and heart must be trained to be more forgiving by approaching God in stillness, meditation, wakefulness, and prayer. No other reality matters more than our relationship with Him. God will heal all our wounds and comfort all hurts when we contact Him and His joy in cosmic ecstasy in this life (and not just after we die). He is beyond all creation and came to us personally. We cannot possibly know all His ways; He who is the creator.

Mark 16:17
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

Mark 16:18
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them: they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Mark 16:19
So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of god.

In other words if you believe there is no fear. With faith anything is possible.

However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you.  You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land.  You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance.  You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way.  (Leviticus 25:44-46)

When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished.  If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property.  (Exodus 21:20-21)

If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father.  Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.  (Deuteronomy 22:28-29)

Lo, a day shall come for the Lord when the spoils shall be divided in your midst.  And I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem for battle: the city shall be taken, houses plundered, women ravished; half of the city shall go into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be removed from the city.  (Zechariah 14:1-2)

Then Jehoiada made a covenant between himself and the king and the people that they would be the LORD's people.  And all the people went over to the temple of Baal and tore it down.  They demolished the altars and smashed the idols, and they killed Mattan the priest of Baal in front of the altars.  (2 Chronicles 23:16-17)

Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death.  Such evil must be purged from Israel.  (Deuteronomy 17:12)

Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods.  In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully.  If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock.  Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it.  Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God.  That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt.  Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction.  Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you.  He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors.  "The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him."  (Deuteronomy 13:13-19)

But if this charge is true (that she wasn't a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father's house.  Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst.  (Deuteronomy  22:20-21)

The LORD then gave these further instructions to Moses: 'Tell the people of Israel to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the covenant between me and you forever.  It helps you to remember that I am the LORD, who makes you holy.  Yes, keep the Sabbath day, for it is holy.  Anyone who desecrates it must die; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community.  Work six days only, but the seventh day must be a day of total rest.  I repeat: Because the LORD considers it a holy day, anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death.'  (Exodus 31:12-15)

From there Elisha went up to Bethel.  While he was on his way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him.  "Go up baldhead," they shouted, "go up baldhead!"  The prophet turned and saw them, and he cursed them in the name of the Lord.  Then two shebears came out of the woods and tore forty two of the children to pieces.  (2 Kings 2:23-24)

Can't you see what I am trying to convey in this thread?

There is no hell. Jesus was a peacelovin' hippie. Constantin, the church and fellow fascists tried to corrupt the message, but it still shines through.

The Way
John 14:6
"I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (KJV)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What does "cometh unto the Father" really mean?
Is it a future promise that comes to one immediately upon death for having professed Jesus Christ as Savior?

Is this a claim of exclusivity by Jesus?

A few verses later, He makes this statement:

John 14:10
"...the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works." (KJV)

By following with this context, Jesus Christ is saying that it is the Father who is saying "I am the way, the truth..."

This takes away from the exclusive claims of sectarians, because the same Father-God has been speaking through prophets and saints throughout human history.

This takes nothing away from the Divinity of Jesus Christ unless exclusivity is the only religious experience one can attest to.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I believe that "coming to the Father" is a present reality and experience that can only come in deep and profound meditation. Coming unto the Father ought to mean speaking to God face to face and not just in imagination or fancy. And not by standing on scripture alone. I have known of too many who rely upon the raw free grace of Christ while in reality the spiritual life shown seems to be another form of atheism. By counting on salvation through proxy, one sometimes ignores the call for profound relationship with the immortal presence of God and one often pursues merely materialistic goals.
The positive side to the certainty of Christian belief is the energy that results from the absence of doubt. Some beneficial results can come from this such as charitable works and the ability to challenge certain shortcomings and hypocrisies that should be addressed in other faiths and in the world at large.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To a yogi, there are certain Biblical references that seem to obviously point to the raising of consciousness through some spiritual practice, such as Kriya Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, or transmission of spiritual force through an enlightened master to the student:
Num 21:8
8 And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. (KJV)

The fiery serpent is the kundalini and the pole represents the spinal chakras and higher centers. The serpents that were afflicting the Israelites represent the delusional consciousness of Maya or Satan that cause us to remain separate from the non-dualism or completeness of God-consciousness.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

John 3:14-15
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
(KJV)
The ordinary view is that Jesus Christ died as a proxy for all and simply believing on the sufficiency of this act is all that is required. Indeed, many peoples? lives are changed for the better with this act of faith. However, to the yogi, John 3:14 again points to the necessity of raising the consciousness beyond the seeming dualism of this world. To "lift up the serpent" is said by Jesus to be a spiritual necessity. Jesus Christ was transparent in his consciousness as the sole reflection of the Father beyond Creation. There was no individualized ego to get in the way of the Creator?s voice. Certainly, Jesus Christ was not circumscribed by his little physical body, his surroundings, or his culture. His being the sole reflection is not exclusive to him as an historical human being but rather by His being an unbroken reflection of the Creator?s will at that point and place in time. One could say that there is only one way to get to outer space and that is through the upper atmosphere. Someone who is speaking from that point of view of the upper atmosphere could very well say, "I am the way." But of course, there are nearly an infinite number of ways to get to space.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

John 1:12
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: (KJV)

To a yogi, being a son or daughter of God is much more than being a rooting section for one divine teacher or another, but rather a palpable presence that is exquisite in scope.

Nice interpretation. It's like saying, through the self or the Christed self that the divine comes TO YOU, THROUGH YOU and NOT from out there somewhere.

The source of all is within and comes through us. When Jesus was saying, no one inifies with the divine but through him, he could easily have been speaking for all of the me's because he said we were also him.

So take what he said, I am the way and the Divine comes in no way but by me. If we are him as brothers and sisters in spirit and body, then we can say the same of ourselves.

No matter how you look at it in this light, he is saying- It's not out there some where but within YOU and there is no other way to come into union with divinity save through yourself.

Nice work Mandelbrot!
