Building Your “House”

From the Book of Ecclesiasticus, Chapter 21, verse 8: “He who builds his house with other men’s money is like one who gathers stones for his own tomb.”

Chapter 24, verse 31: “I will water my best garden, and will water abundantly my garden bed; and lo, my brook became a river, and my river became a sea.”

Inability To Discern TRUTH

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.””

As interpreted by one who has ears to hear: “Jesus said, Why have you come out into the desert? (Waterless place apart from the water of God’s Word) to see a reed (The Word Canon is derived from the word reed) shaken by the wind (of God’s doctrine)? And to see a man clothed in fine (Religious or secular) garments like your kings and your great men? (Who are all in collusion) upon them are the fine [garments], (Externals, or superficial greatness; association with an organization or religion) and they are unable to discern the truth (Because they lack internal greatness, or true substance)”

A Higher Understanding of The World

In the Gospel of Thomas, verse 56, we read, “Jesus said, “Whoever has come to understand the World has found only a corpse, and whoever has found a corpse is superior to the World.”

As has been interpreted by one who has ears to hear: “Jesus said, Whoever has come to understand the world (and how it hides the spiritual behind a fleshly façade) has found (only) a corpse (Tradition; poverty; the word without spiritual insight), and whoever has found a corpse (That the worldly images serves this function) is superior to the world (Not subject to its delusion).”

Even man’s logic would suggest a solution to the “corpse”; a discovery of spiritual insight that can only be found through the gift of Yahweh and the power of His Spirit of Truth. Seek and ye shall find.

When Will I See Him?

From the Gospel of Thomas Verse 37: “His disciples said, “When will you become revealed to us and when shall we see you?”
Jesus said, “When you disrobe without being ashamed and take up your garments and place them under your feet like little children and tread on
them, then will you see the Son of the Living One, and you will not be
afraid.”

As has been interpreted by one who has ears to hear: “His disciples said, When will you (The Living Word) become revealed to us and when shall we see you? Jesus said, When you disrobe (Leave the religious establishment) without being ashamed and take up your garments (Denominations, differences) and place them under your feet like little children (The Elect) and tread on them (Reject them, throw the small fish back into the sea), then [will you see] the son of the living one (And thus be like Him, for when we see the Son, we see Him, and in seeing Him, we become as He is), and (Hence) you will not be afraid (For He is perfect Love, which casts out all fear; 1 John 4:18)*.

  • 1 John 4:18 – There is no fear in love, but perfect love casteth out fear: for fear hath painfulness: and he that feareth, is not perfect in love.
