A Man Clothed in Fine Garments

From the Gospel of Thomas, verse 78: “Jesus said, “Why have you come out into the desert? To see a reed shaken by the wind? And to see a man clothed in fine garments like your kings and your great men? Upon them are the fine garments, and they are unable to discern the truth.”

Let’s examine this verse as it would pertain in this post-normal, strongly Satanic-influenced world/society.

Jesus asked, “Why have you come out into the desert?” What is the desert in this spiritual context? The desert is generally a waterless place, void of life, i.e. a place lacking the true spiritual knowledge of the Word of God.

Jesus wanted to know if they (you/anyone) came to “see a reed shaken by the wind?” Why would there be a reed in the desert? Maybe this “reed” is “dressed in fine garments,” disguised. A reed is something that is most often found in water (Word of God). It might appear that you are trying to find something in the wrong place. Water is not in the desert.

Let’s look closer at what a reed is. A reed, one generally found where there is water, in ancient Egypt, these areas where reeds grew in the water were called a “bulrush” or “bullrush.” There are different species of reeds, but in Egypt the most common reed, from the bullrushes, were identified as the source of papyrus – according to Etymology Online: “…bullrush, popular name for tall rush-like plants growing in or near water (in Biblical use, the Egyptian papyrus).”

We know that papyrus was used in ancient times for paper, scrolls, to write things on. It is actually where the term “bible” comes from: Greek, biblion (paper, scroll).

It then appears that what Jesus is asking is if you are looking for the Word of God (Bible, Canon, i.e. reed), where there is no water (Word of God). But also, Jesus describes the “reed” as “shaken by the wind.” If this “reed” is the canonical (readily accepted scriptures by order of church leaders, Scribes, Pharisees, lawyers,) Scriptures, it is “shaken” by the wind of the Logos (God’s complete word/doctrine).

Evidently, the seekers came to the desert to find their (man-gods) kings and great men, who are all in collusion to bastardize the Word of God and to hide Truth from and deny as many as they can. These kings and great men are described as wearing “fine garments,” i.e. well disguised in what they do but incapable of knowing the real Truth.

And yet, we insist in turning our hopes to these corrupt kings and great men wandering the the desert, being shaken by the Almighty EL.

Seek (the complete Son of God) and you will find. He won’t be in the desert.
