Ephesians 6: Speak Boldly

Ephesians 6
1 Children (chelas, disciples), obey your (inner, divine) parents in the Lord: for this is right (virtuous).

2 Honour thy (Divine) Father and (Divine) Mother (in each thought, word, and deed); which is the first commandment with promise;

3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth (physical body, which you need to advance in the Great Work).

4 And, ye fathers (spiritual leaders), provoke not your children (students) to wrath (with your ego): but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (the Being; teach them to first serve their own Innermost).

5 Servants (of humanity), be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;

6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers (appearing to serve, but not with your heart); but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;

7 With good (conscious) will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: (do all service as if it were for your own Innermost)

8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. (because Karma is indeed infallible)

9 And, ye masters (of Major Mysteries), do the same things (of selfless service) unto them (who follow after you), forbearing threatening (do not threaten or use fear): knowing that your (Inner) Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord (the revolutionary Christ), and in the power of his might (Aun).

11 Put on the whole armour of God (the Solar Bodies), that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil (who is within you).

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against (inner) principalities, against (our own egotistical) powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this (psychological) world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth (in perfect chastity), and having on the breastplate of righteousness (with a clean and robust heart);

15 And your feet (your marriage) shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace (the Fifth Gospel, the gospel of Alchemy);

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith (direct experience), wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts (criticisms and gossip) of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation (the illuminated pineal gland), and the sword of the Spirit (your tongue), which is the word of God (the profound teachings which you spread with your Word):

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and (consciously) watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel (without fear, without reserve, but with great compassion for all mankind, and in accordance with the instructions given by the Christ himself),

20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

21 But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:

22 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.

23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.

Ezekiel 44: Be Conscious

Ezekiel 44

4 Then brought he (Chesed, the Innermost) me (Tiphereth, the human soul) the way of the north gate (the pineal gland, the chakra sahasrara) before the (psychological) house (the soul, the Temple of God): and I looked (within myself), and, behold, the glory (Hebrew: Netzach, the mental body) of the LORD filled the house of the LORD: and I fell upon my face (bowed in humility, because the Soul belongs to God, not to the bodhisattva).

5 And the LORD said unto me, Son of man (Tiphereth, the bodhisattva), mark well, and behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears all that I say unto thee concerning all the ordinances (commandments) of the house (soul) of the LORD, and all the laws (of cause and effect) thereof; and mark well the entering in (of any impression) of the house, with every going forth of (every reaction from) the sanctuary (of the mind).

6 And thou shalt say to the rebellious (egos within you), even to the house (soul) of Israel (Isis-RA-ELohim; even the soul you have made wants to act without My will), “Thus saith the Lord GOD:;O ye house (soul) of Israel (the Being), let it suffice you of all your abominations (be done with your desires and egos),

7 “In that ye (disobeying consciousness and egos) have brought into my (mental) sanctuary strangers (psychological elements not made by God), uncircumcised (fornicators) in heart (emotion), and uncircumcised (fornicators) in flesh, to be in my (mental) sanctuary, to pollute it (with fornication, the filthy orgasm), even my house (the soul), when ye offer (in meditation) my bread (comprehension), the fat (karmic benefits) and the blood (spiritual vigor), and they have broken my covenant because of all your (desires that contradict the Law of God and are thus) abominations.

8 “And ye have not kept the (conscious) charge of mine holy things (the astral, mental, causal, vital and physical bodies): but ye have set keepers of my charge in my sanctuary for yourselves (instead you put your egos, desires, and selfish will in charge of your mind, heart and actions).

9 “Thus saith the Lord GOD; No stranger (no ego or self-willed element), uncircumcised (unchaste) in heart, nor uncircumcised (unchaste) in flesh, shall enter into my (mental) sanctuary (the soul), of any stranger (psychological element not created by God) that is among the children (internal bodies) of Israel (ISis-RA-ELohim: the Being).

Deuteronomy 20: Instructions for Battle

Deuteronomy 20

1 When thou (the consciousness) goest out to battle (in constant self-watchfulness) against thine enemies (the egos within you), and seest horses (animal elements), and chariots (fast moving mental structures), and a people more (numerous) than thou (because the ego is an enormous Legion), be not afraid of them: for the LORD thy God (your inner Being) is with thee (the consciousness, the Essence), which brought thee (the Essence) up out of the land of Egypt (bondage in the ego, in Klipoth, by means of comprehension in meditation).

2 And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle (of ordeals in your life, when the ego is raging against you), that the priest (your Being) shall approach and speak unto the people (of Israel: the consciousness),

3 And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel (ISis-RA-ELohim: the consciousness), ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies (egos): let not your hearts faint (emotionally), fear not (intellectually), and do not tremble (in your motor-instinctual-sexual brain), neither be ye terrified (consciously) because of them;

4 For the LORD (YHVH) your (inner) God is he that goeth with(in) you (by means of your consciousness), to fight for you against your enemies (egos), to save you (from your karma, which you will face in the ordeals you are encountering now, such as...).

5 And the officers (bodhisattvas: teachers with awakened consciousness and acquired degrees of initiation) shall speak unto the people (students of Gnosis), saying, What man (initiate) is there that hath built a new house (soul), and hath not dedicated it (in initiation)? let him go (without dreaming of the future initiation) and return to his (psychological) house (and be conscious of himself from moment to moment), lest he die in the battle (and lose his degrees and awakened consciousness), and another man (ego) dedicate (steal) it (his house, his soul).

6 And what man (aspirant to the Light) is he that hath planted a vineyard (garden of the Lord in the soul, by the first steps of initiation), and hath not yet (consciously) eaten of it (by means of Samadhi)? let him also go (without desiring experiences and samadhi) and return (consciously) unto his (psychological) house (by means of meditation), lest he die in the battle (and lose his awareness), and another man (ego) eat of it.

7 And what man (manas: mind) is there that hath betrothed (sexually) a wife (spouse), and hath not taken her (responsibly and consciously, as the Law demands)? let him go (and take responsibility for his actions by acting upon the commands of his Being) and return (consciously) unto his (psychological) house (and put his house in order, by living in harmony with the Law), lest he die (psychologically, consciously) in the battle (ordeal), and another man (ego or even another person) take her.

8 And the officers (bodhisattvas: teachers with awakened consciousness and acquired degrees of initiation) shall speak further unto the people (students of Gnosis), and they shall say, What man (aspirant) is there that is fearful and fainthearted? let him go and return (consciously) unto his (psychological) house (so he will not infect others with his negative emotions), lest his brethren's heart faint as well as his heart.

9 And it shall be, when the officers (bodhisattvas) have made an end of speaking unto the people that they shall make captains (teachers) of the (Gnostic) armies to lead (by example) the people (by living the Gnostic doctrine from moment to moment, such as...).

10 When thou comest nigh unto a (psychological) city (any collection of psychological components in your mind) to fight against it (and free your consciousness from the subconsciousness), then proclaim peace (conscious serenity) unto it (by means of comprehension and transmutation).

11 And it shall be, if it (that psychological entity) make thee answer of peace (harmony and balance in the consciousness), and open unto thee, then it shall be, that all the people (psychological elements) that is found therein shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve thee (in your path).

12 And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make (spiritual, intellectual, emotional) war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it (in meditation):

13 And when the LORD (YHVH) thy (inner) God hath delivered it into thine hands (because you have fully comprehended it in meditation), thou shalt smite (kill) every male (every ego in your mind) thereof with the edge of the sword (of the Divine Mother):

14 But the women (conscious elements trapped in the egos), and the little ones (sparks of purity), and the cattle (innocent animal elements), and all that is in the (psychological) city, even all the spoil (benefits) thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself (consciously); and thou shalt eat (reap) the spoil (benefits) of (the death of) thine enemies (the egos), which the LORD thy God hath given thee (because of your deep comprehension of them in meditation).

15 Thus shalt thou do unto all the cities which are very far off from thee (in the depths of your mind), which are not of the cities of these (conscious) nations (of the Being, because you made them yourself from your desire and many mistakes).

16 But of the (psychological) cities of these people (egos), which the LORD thy God doth give thee for an (karmic) inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth (for the egos are abominations that must be completely eradicated, without any exception whatsoever):

17 But thou shalt utterly destroy them (by means of constant self-watchfulness and meditation...)

John 8: The Pharisees Judge the Bodhisattva

John 8:

13 The Pharisees (believers and teachers but without real experience) therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.

14 Jesus (YHSVH) the Saviour who incarnates in the Bodhisattva) answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I (consciously) know whence I came, and whither I go (because I only do what my Father directs me to do); but ye (blind guides) cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go (because you are asleep, even though you want to appear awake).

15 Ye judge (with your senses) after the flesh; I (the Christ) judge no man (Chesed; but I judge his human soul).

16 And yet if I judge (his human soul), my judgment (through Geburah) is true (upright and active): for I am not alone, but I (Chokmah in Tiphereth) and the Father (Kether through Chesed) that sent me (to incarnate in my bodhisattvas).

17 It is also written in your (Second) law (which is lower than the First), that the testimony of two men is true.

18 I am one that bear witness of myself (I stand alone), and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me (is my sole support and foundation; I do not need the approval of your groups and committees).

19 Then said they (the believers who are asleep) unto him (to act friendly but while hiding their animosity), Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye (asleep ones) neither know me (because you have not incarnated Christ; you are not bodhisattvas), nor my Father (because only the bodhisattvas can incarnate the Logos): if ye had known (gnosis / daath) me, ye should have known my Father also (because only those who incarnate Christ through the Initiation of Tiphereth can enter the direct path. You pratyeka buddhas and shravakas only know your rancid beliefs and your blind followers).

20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.

21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way (direct path), and ye shall seek me (but remain stubborn in your pride and self-satisfaction), and shall die (the second death in the abyss) in your sins: whither I go (to the Absolute), ye cannot come (with that fat ego of yours).

22 Then said the (so-called) Jews (who believe they are initiates but are not), Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come (because they do not understand anything about the doctrine, since they only have their beliefs in the heart and their theories in the intellect, but no conscious knowledge of the path)

23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath (your ego keeps you trapped in hell); I am (Christ) from above (where there is no desire, no I): ye are of this world (of Klipoth); I am not of this world.

24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe (be-live: to incarnate) not that I am he (if you do not incarnate me, the Christ), ye shall die in your sins (in klipoth).

25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? (because they do not consciously know the Messiah, and only worship their groups and theories) And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.

26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.

27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.

28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son (Tiphereth) of man (Chesed, the real man), then shall ye know that I am he (because when you incarnate Christ, you can see who else has incarnated Him), and that I do nothing of myself (I do nothing from my self-will); but as my Father (the Logos) hath taught me, I speak these things.

29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

30 As he spake these words, many believed on him (many left those Pharisee-ic groups, to learn instead from the real initiates, thus the Pharisees hate the real initiates).

31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word (Logos, following the path my Logos is teaching through me), then are ye my disciples indeed;

32 And ye shall know the truth (the Absolute, the Ain), and the truth shall make you free (of all the laws that bind).

33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed (inheritors of Abraham, Samael: the founder of the esoteric priesthood in these times), and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin (self-willed action) is the servant of sin (by the law of cause and effect; but he who does the will of God is not a servant of sin but of God).

35 And the servant (bound by karma) abideth not in the house (Beth, the second letter, the second sphere, Chokmah) for ever (because being bound by karma, he must enter into manifestation in the lower worlds in order to pay what he owes): but the Son abideth ever (in Chokmah).

36 If the Son (Chokmah, the Second Logos) therefore shall make you free (of the wheel of samsara by means of the direct path), ye shall be free indeed.

37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed (inheritors of Gnosis); but ye seek to kill me (in your mind and heart), because my word (Logos) hath no place in you (because your ego is enthroned within you).

38 I speak that which I have (consciously) seen with my Father (Kether and beyond): and ye do that which ye have seen with your father (he who originates your current life).

39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham (Samael) is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's (Samael's) children, ye would do the works of Abraham (Samael; you would enter the direct path).

40 But now ye seek to kill me (with criticism, gossip, politics, and your sanctimony), a man (manas: tiphereth) that hath told you (about) the truth (the path to the Absolute), which I have heard (been taught) of God: this did not Abraham (Samael, the founder of the tradition, did not compete with or try to conquer those who teach the upright path, but you do).

41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication (for we know about chastity); we have one Father, even God (so you say with your sanctimony, using the doctrine to justify yourselves).

42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word (the Logos).

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

47 He that is of God heareth God's words (because the consciousness is awakening): ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God (you prefer to enthrone your pride and self-justification).

48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan (foreigner to our group), and hast a devil (the ego very fat)?

49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil (the ego, because I am Christ); but I honour my Father (the Logos), and ye do dishonour me (by keeping your ego alive).

50 And I seek not mine own glory (by proclaiming myself to be a big chief): there is one that seeketh and judgeth (the initiates; thus I keep my head down in humility).

51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying (teachings), he shall never see (the second) death (the mechanical karmic purification of the ego in hell).

52 Then said the (so-called) Jews (those who call themselves initiates but are not) unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil (big fat ego; for the Pharisees always condemn others: "See his ego?"). Abraham is dead (to our eyes, for we are asleep), and the prophets (are dead to us, for we have no experience of them); and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.

53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham (Samael), which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself? (The Pharisees out of envy and pride always condemn those who have real experience and awakening, saying "Samael did not say you are an initiate, so you must not be!").

54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself (saying I am this great initiate and I am that great bodhisattva), my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me (internally, consciously); of whom ye say, that he is your God:

55 Yet ye have not known him (consciously); but I know him (consciously): and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep (follow) his saying (guidance).

56 Your father Abraham (Samael, who is very alive and awake) rejoiced to see my day (of Genesis): and he saw it (because he is the head of the Gnostic Church), and was glad (to see that there are a few who live his teaching).

57 Then said the (false) Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? (because the false initiates think that only those who satisfy their many rules and restrictions, like being of a certain age to get certain teachings, or by attending their approved institutions, or following their approved programs, can awaken consciousness. They think their own groups are the only way to Christ).

58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

Psalm 58: Do You Speak Justice?

1 Do you indeed speak justice (Geburah: conscious judgment; buddhi), O mighty ones? do you judge (discriminate impressions) uprightly (consciously, by the guidance of the Being through Geburah), O you sons (human souls) of men (Atman)?

2 Yea, in your (animal) minds you devise (egoic) wickedness; with your hands (through your three brains) you deal out lawlessness (actions that are contrary to the Law of Karma and the will of God).

3 The wicked (egos) are defiant from (the moment of their) birth (by your wrong transformation of impressions): they go astray (from the consciousness) as soon as they be born, speaking lies (into your three brains).

4 Their (sweet-tasting) poison (that you love to drink) is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;

5 Which will not hearken to the voice of snakecharmers (bodhisattvas who know how to work with the serpentine fire), however skillful their magic may be (instead, you stop up your ears and drink in the poisonous lies of your filthy ego).

6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth (for with their teeth they feed on your energy and they whisper their lies in your three brains): break out the great teeth of the young lions (karmic consequences intertwined with the ego), O LORD (YHVH).

7 Let them melt away (in the fires of transmutation) as (sexual) waters which run continually (without the interruption of the horrible orgasm): when he bendeth his (psychological) bow (the three brains) to shoot his arrows (of criticism, of sanctimony, of self-justification, of lies and more lies), let them be as cut in pieces.

8 As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away: like the untimely birth (stillbirth) of a woman, that they may not see the sun (let those egos be aborted and killed).

9 Before the (painful) thorns (of life) grow into a bramble (of karmic suffering), may He take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath (karmic punishment).

10 The righteous (those who live by the Law of the Being, who know how to consciously listen to Geburah, judgment) shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance (of the Being over the ego): he shall wash his feet in the blood (energy) of the wicked (egos).

11 So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous (he who knows how to hear the voice of Geburah): verily he is a God (Bodhisattva) that judgeth (with conscious knowledge and discrimination) in the (psychological and physical) earth.

Ezekiel 28: The Pride of a Bodhisattva

Ezekiel 28

1 The word (Solar Logos) of the LORD (YHVH) came again unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, say unto the prince (the human soul) of Tyrus: Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast been so haughty (proud), and thou hast said, "I am a God (bodhisattva: incarnation of Christ), I sit in the seat of God (the pineal gland), in the midst of the seas (of the upper Eden, Daath, knowledge)"; yet thou art a (merely a) man, and not (a) God, though thou set thine (inferior) mind as the (abstract) mind of God:

3 Yes, thou art wiser than Daniel (the interpreter of dreams); there is no secret that they can hide from thee (because you are so curious and sneaky):

4 With thy shrewd understanding (animal mind) thou hast gotten thee (sensual) riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:

5 By thy shrewdness in trade hast thou increased thy riches, and thine mind is lifted up because of thy riches:

6 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine mind as the mind of God;

7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers (to you, who are my agents: the agents of Karma, and they will be) upon thee, the terror of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against your prized shrewdness (animal mind), and they shall defile thy splendor (Hod, the astral body that you misuse, will now be destroyed).

8 They shall bring thee down to the pit (the Klipoth of your own making, the consequences of your pride and arrogance), and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas (the lower Eden, Yesod, the sexual waters that drown the fornicators).

9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, "I am God (a bodhisattva)?" but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him (the Angel of Death) that slayeth thee.

10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised (fornicators who ignore the sexual mysteries) by the hand of strangers (to you: the true Gods, the agents of the Law, who are like strangers upon the Earth, for they remain totally anonymous): for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.

11 Moreover the word (Solar Logos) of the LORD (YHVH) came unto me, saying,

12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king (the Being) of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; You (the Being, the Spirit) were the seal of perfection (paramitas: virtues), full of wisdom (Chokmah, Christ), and perfect in beauty (Tiphereth, the Human Soul).

13 Thou hast been in (upper) Eden the garden of God (in the sixth dimension); every precious stone (virtue) was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold (the ten precious stones of the ten sephiroth): the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created (through the days of Genesis that your human soul accomplished).

14 I (the Solar Logos) created you as a Cherub (inhabitant of Chokmah) with outstretched shielding wings (a developed soul); thou wast upon the holy mountain of God (the Third Mountain); thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity (the ego) was found in thee (in your human soul, who believes himself to be a holy God).

16 By the multitude of thy commerce (karmic exchanges) they (the egos of your human soul) have filled the midst of thee with violence (karmic debts), and thou (thy human soul) hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O shielding Cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 You (your human soul) became proud because of thy beauty (Tiphereth: he claimed before others to be a bodhisattva), thou hast corrupted thy wisdom (Chokmah, the inner Christ) by abuse of thy splendour (Hod, the astral body, who has been used for self-glorification and indulgence): I will cast thee to the ground (malkuth/klipoth), I will lay thee before kings (Malachim), that they may behold thee (and be warned).

18 Thou hast defiled thy (own) sanctuaries (Spirit, Soul, and Body) by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy commerce (egotistical actions); therefore will I bring forth a (karmic, sexual) fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.

Proverbs 2: Guidance for a Student

1 My (spiritual) son, if thou wilt receive my words (gnosis), and hide my commandments with thee (store this knowledge in your heart and mind);

2 So that thou incline thine ear (attention) unto wisdom (Chokmah, Christ), and apply thine heart to understanding (Binah, Holy Spirit);

3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge (Gnosis), and givest thy mind (psyche, soul) for understanding (to receive Binah, the Holy Spirit, the sacred Fire);

4 If thou seekest her (Sophia, the Divine Mother Kundalini) as silver (moon, related to conception: seek Gnosis as you seek for the birth of your soul), and searchest for her as for hid treasures (which are found within you);

5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge (Gnosis, Daath) of God.

6 For the LORD (Adonai) giveth wisdom (Christ): out of his mouth (as a sword) cometh knowledge (gnosis) and understanding (fire of Binah).

7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous (who seek to be perfect as their Heavenly Father is perfect): he is a buckler (shield) to them that walk uprightly (in proper observance of His commands).

8 He keepeth the paths of (karmic) judgment, and preserveth the way (path to liberation) of his saints (buddhas, "awakened ones").

9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness (virtue), and (karmic) judgment, and equity (the law of the balance); yea, every good path.

10 When wisdom (Christ) entereth into thine heart, and knowledge (Daath, Gnosis) is pleasant unto thy soul;

11 Discretion (hermetic silence) shall preserve thee (when among fools), understanding (Holy Spirit; CHASTITY) shall keep thee (when tempted by desires):

12 To deliver thee from the way of the evil man (your neighbors who do not want Gnosis), from the man that speaketh subversive things (corrupting the minds of others);

13 Who leave the (spiral and straight) paths of uprightness (Chastity, Charity and Sanctity), to walk in the ways of darkness (Klipoth, the path of materialism and identification with sensation);

14 Who rejoice to do evil (selfish acts), and delight in the subversiveness of the wicked (who rule this entire humanity);

15 Whose ways are crooked (self-loving, proud and arrogant), and they are subversive (liars) in their paths:

16 To deliver thee from (the wives of the fallen Adam): the adulteress (Nahemah, the whore, mother of malignant beauty, passion and adultery), even from the loose woman (Lilith is the mother of abortions, homosexuality and in general, all kinds of crimes against Nature) which flattereth with her (seductive) words (in the media, television, movies, books, and through her disciples, all the men and women who worship fornication);

17 Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.

18 For her house (teachings) inclineth unto (the second) death (devolution in the infernal worlds), and her paths unto the (spiritually) dead.

19 None that go unto her return again (until their soul is cleanse of all ego), neither take they hold of the paths of life (until their karma is paid).

20 That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous (virtuous; that is, kill your ego, and cultivate virtue, so that thou may ascend to Christ).

21 For the upright shall dwell in the land (of the Father, for a while), and the perfect (who have no ego at all) shall remain in it (because the ego is dead in them).

22 But the wicked (those who still have pride, fear, lust, envy, etc) shall be cut off from the (new) earth (the future Golden Age), and the transgressors (karmic debtors) shall be rooted out of it (to pay what they owe).

Proverbs 1: Guidance for a Student

1 The proverbs of Solomon (Solar-man; Man of Sol, Sun, Christ) the son of David, king of Israel (Is = Isis, the Divine Mother, Ra = Amun-ra, the Divine Mother; El = Hebrew for God; David is the malachim (king), the INNER BEING who commands in the house of Is-Ra-El. Sol-o-man is His Son, the Solar Man, or man who has created the bodies of the Soul; that is, he is BORN AGAIN);

2 To know wisdom (Hebrew = Chokmah, the Christ) and instruction (knowledge = Daath); to perceive (clairvoyantly) the words (Verb, the Word which IS) of understanding (Hebrew = Binah, the Holy Spirit);

3 To receive the instruction of wisdom (Chokmah), justice (Geburah), and (karmic) judgment, and (psychological) equity (the TAO);

4 To give subtilty (shrewdness of the serpent of Moses) to the simple (fools, so they will become wise), to the (spiritually) young man knowledge (DAATH, Gnosis) and discretion (hermetic silence).

5 A wise man (man of Wisdom, Chokmah, Christ: a bodhisattva) will hear (intuitively), and will increase learning (Gnosis); and a man of understanding (Binah, the Holy Spirit) shall attain unto wise counsels (Chokmah, Christ): (these men, having incarnated high levels of Light, receiving instruction from that Light in accordance with their level)

6 To understand a proverb (the symbols), and the interpretation (the meanings); the words (Christic phrases, mantras) of the wise, and their dark sayings (riddles, koans).

7 The fear (Hebrew = pehar, respect) of the LORD (YHVH, the Yod (male) and Heve (female)) is the beginning of knowledge (Daath): but fools despise wisdom (Christ) and instruction (Gnosis).

8 My (spiritual) son, hear the instruction (Gnosis) of thy father (teacher, guide, guru), and forsake not the law of thy (Divine) mother:

9 For they shall be an ornament of grace (astral virtues) unto thy head (crown, kether), and (golden) chains (of honor) about thy neck.

10 My son, if sinners (fornicators) entice thee, consent thou not.

11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood (spiritual energy), let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause: (let us present our teachings to sleeping humanity, to take control of them by using their pride, lust and fear)

12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave (Sheol; hell, the abyss); and whole, as those that go down into the pit (Klipoth):

13 We shall find all precious substance (Christic energies), we shall fill our houses with spoil: (we shall steal the vital energies of our disciples)

14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse: (for they are deceivers who speak as angels but have the hearts of wolves, and who make promises of eternal life and easy gains)

15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them (reject false teachings); refrain thy foot from their (degenerating) path:

16 For their feet run to evil (devolution), and make haste to shed blood (spiritual energy).

17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird. (be alert as the bird for the net of the spiritual liars)

18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives. (for the results of their actions will always follow them)

19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the (spiritual) life of the owners thereof. (the true teachers do not demand memberships or contracts or obedience; they merely indicate that we should follow only our own Inner Being)

20 Wisdom (Christ, who is one with SOPHIA) crieth without; she uttereth her voice (Verb) in the streets:

21 She (Sophia) crieth (the real teachings) in the chief place of concourse (public places), in the openings of the gates (without hiding the real nature of Gnosis): in the city she uttereth her words, saying,

22 How long, ye simple ones (fools), will ye love simplicity (ignorance)? and the scorners (blasphemers) delight in their scorning (of Gnosis), and fools hate knowledge (Gnosis)?

23 Turn you at my reproof (turn yourself; change, for Sophia calls you): behold, I will pour out my spirit (of Wisdom) unto you, I will make known my words (Gnosis) unto you.

24 Because I have called (through my bodhisattvas), and ye refused (because you love perishable, worldly things); I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded (instead, you are identified with politics, money, lust, and materials things);

25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would (hear) none of my reproof:

26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

27 When your fear (terror) cometh as desolation, and your (karmic) destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

28 Then shall they (the fools) call upon me, but I will not answer (for they must pay what they owe); they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

29 For that they hated knowledge (Gnosis), and did not choose the fear of the LORD (the respect of His Laws):

30 They would (hear) none of my counsel (guidance to change psychologically): they (the fools) despised all my reproof.

31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way (they shall receive what they are due), and be filled with their own devices (their own works will be turned back upon them).

32 For the turning away (ignorance; lack of gnosis) of the simple (fools) shall slay them, and the (selfish) prosperity of (egotistical) fools shall destroy them.

33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me (Sophia, Christ) shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet (serene) from fear of evil (devolution in the abyss).

2 John, chapter 1

Comments in this entry by Mephistopheles from The Gnostic Forum.

2 John, chapter 1

1: The elder (Kether) unto the elect lady (Aima Elohim) and her children (the Malachim), whom I (the Word) love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they (the twice born) that have known the truth (have incarnated Christ);

2: For the truth's sake, which dwells in us (as the Son of Man), and shall be with us for ever.

3: Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father (Kether), and from the Lord Jesus Christ (Chokmah), the Son of the Father (Kether), in truth and love.

4: I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children (Initiates) walking in truth (Christ), as we have received a commandment from the Father (Kether).

5: And now I (the Word) beseech thee, lady (Aima Elohim), not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we (the Word and Thee in Daath) love one another.

6: And this is love that we walk (on the straight path) after his (Kether) commandments. This is the commandment, that, as ye have heard from the beginning (in Daath), ye should walk in it.

7: For many deceivers (Baalim) are entered into the world (of Assiah, Malkuth), who confess not that Jesus Christ (as an spiritual unfoldment of the Cosmic Christ, Chokmah, Vishnu) is come in the flesh (through Binah). This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

8: Look to yourselves (Inner Selves), that we lose not those (spiritual) things which we have wrought (from Daath), but that we receive a full reward (that is the fruit of her womb).

9: Whosoever transgresses, and abides not in the doctrine of (the Red) Christ (of Aquarius), has not God (the Father). He that abides in the doctrine of (the Red) Christ (of Aquarius), he has both the Father (Samael) and the Son (Aun Weor).

10: If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine (of the Red Christ of Aquarius), receive him (his doctrine) not into your house (soul, mind and body), neither bid him God speed:

11: For he that bids him (his doctrine) God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

12: Having many (kabbalistic) things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you (as the fruit of her womb), and speak face to face (as Fire), that our joy may be full.

13: The children (Initiates) of thy elect sister (Aima Elohim) greet thee (Iod-Havah Elohim). Amen.

1 John 2

1 John 2

1 My little children (initiates who are awakening consciousness), these things write I unto you, that ye sin not (not listen to your ego). And if any man sin (by believing his own ego or the egos of others), we have an advocate with the Father, (the inner Savior) Jesus (the Cosmic) Christ the righteous (who fulfills the law):

2 And he is the propitiation for our sins (because only the Christic wisdom can lead us out of the ego): and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

3 And hereby we do know that we know him (the universal Christ), if we keep his commandments (strict guidance to stay on the path to Self-realization).

4 He that saith (speaks about Gnosis), I know him, and keepeth not his (the Christ's) commandments, is a liar (because he is identified with his pride and vanity), and the truth (Christ) is not in him (you can only serve one master: the devil ego, or the Inner Guru).

5 But whoso keepeth his word (the sacred Christic doctrine), in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. (Those who remain completely true to the strict rule of the Christ are perfected; those who listen to their filthy mind fall away).

6 He that saith he abideth in him (Christ) ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked (we must emulate Christ in all ways: never glorifying ourselves or others, but only loving all beings and serving them in humility).

7 Brethren (initiates who have achieved some level of sanctification), I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning (of your work on the path). The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning (that is, you shall love the Lord your own Inner God above all things; that is, you shall have no other masters before your own Inner Guru).

8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you (initiates who are awakening consciousness), which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness (of total sleep) is past (due to your inner work), and the true light (of Christ) now shineth (in accordance with your level of development).

9 (Yet) He that saith he is in the (Christic) light (of the bodhisattva), and hateth his brother (with gossip and criticism), is in (psychological) darkness even until now.

10 He that loveth his brother (in service and humility) abideth in the (Christic) light (of self-sacrifice), and there is none occasion of stumbling (over his own desires) in him (because the light reveals the traps of the ego).

11 But he that hateth his brother (with envy, jealousy and resentment) is in (psychological) darkness, and walketh (his path) in darkness (without the Christ), and knoweth not whither he goeth (though he never admits it), because that darkness hath blinded his (spiritual) eyes.

12 I write unto you, little children (disciples who are walking the path to sanctification), because your sins (karmic debts) are forgiven you for his name's sake (when He incarnates in you and leads you along the path toward freedom).

13 I write unto you, fathers (initiates), because ye have known him (in your meditation) that is from the beginning (in Daath). I write unto you, young men (initiates with good progress), because ye have overcome the wicked one (to a certain degree). I write unto you, little children (very advanced initiates), because ye have known the Father (directly, and perhaps even have Him incarnated, because no one knows the Father but through the inner incarnation of the Christ, which is a work of the bodhisattva).

14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong (in transmutation), and the word of God abideth in you (due to your inner creations), and ye have overcome the wicked one (and remain committed to Christ).

15 Love not the world (of illusions), neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him (desire is the root of all evil; you must eliminate desire completely).

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever (because he is completely free of all desire).

18 Little children, it is the last time (the end of the age approaches): and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come (the ego will become fat in humanity), even now are there many antichrists (in you: your own egos); whereby we know that it is the last time.

19 They (egos) went out from us (we created them), but they were not of us (they are not our real self); for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us (eternally): but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us (the ego and the personality are impermanent; the true Inner Buddha is eternal).

20 But ye have an unction (esoteric blessing) from the Holy One, and ye know (Daath) all things (your comprehension increases due to the work of sexual transmutation and meditation).

21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the (Christic) truth, but because ye know it (to a certain degree, due to your inner works), and that no (egotistical) lie is of the truth (Christ).

22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus (Yeshua, the inner savior) is the (true) Christ (because a man lies when he claims he is a master, a great initiate)? He (that claims such things about himself) is antichrist (the ego), that denieth the (inner) Father and the Son. (Likewise, those who worship personalities rather than their own inner Guru are liars who deceive themselves and others, because only the Inner Christ can save us)

23 Whosoever denieth the Son (by claiming himself to be a great illuminated one), the same (liar) hath not the Father: he that (in humility and simplicity) acknowledgeth the Son (is the true wisdom and master) hath the Father also.

24 Let that (commandment) therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning (to love your own Inner God first, and not your filthy ego which always wants to show itself). If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.

26 These things have I written unto you concerning them (those egos) that seduce you.

27 But the anointing (initiations) which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any (external) man teach you (you only need your Inner Master): but as the same anointing (initiation) teacheth you of all things (as you meditate), and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him (Christ).

28 And now, little children (initiates), abide in him; that, when he shall appear (in you, incarnated in perfection), we may have confidence (strength), and not be ashamed before him at his coming (because we have done what we should do: die as an ego, be born as a soul, and sacrifice for humanity).

29 If ye know that he (Christ) is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

The Wisdom Of Solomon, Chapter 1

1 Love righteousness (virtue), you rulers of the earth (who rule over your own earth in Self-awareness),
think of the Lord in goodness (conscious Self-presence)
and seek him with sincerity of heart (Self-remembering);

2 because he is found by those who do not put him to the test (demanding proofs with the sensual mind),
and manifests himself to those who do not distrust him (trust is built on real faith: direct experience).

3 For perverse thoughts (of the I) separate people from (their inner) God,
and when his power is tested, it exposes the foolish (for God is not mocked);

4 because wisdom (Chokmah: Christ) will not enter a deceitful soul (the soul is deceitful when it remains trapped in ego),
or dwell in a body enslaved to sin (fornication).

5 For a holy and disciplined spirit will flee from deceit (negative emotions),
and will leave foolish thoughts behind,
and will be ashamed at the approach of unrighteousness (the I who wants to fulfill its desires).

6 For wisdom (Christ) is a kindly spirit (to the free consciousness),
but will not free blasphemers (I’s) from the guilt (karma) of their words;
because (your inner) God is (always) witness of their inmost feelings,
and a true observer of their hearts, and a hearer of their tongues (your Being sees all that your ego does).

7 Because the spirit of the Lord has filled the world,
and that which holds all things together knows what is said (He knows you, because He made you),

8 therefore those who utter unrighteous things (in their mind) will not escape notice,
and justice (karma), when it punishes, will not pass them by.

9 For inquiry will be made into the counsels (urges) of the ungodly (egos, which always try to influence us),
and a report of their words will come to the Lord (of Karma),
to convict them of their lawless deeds;

10 because a jealous (zealous) ear hears all things,
and the sound of grumbling (complaining) does not go unheard.

11 Beware then of useless grumbling (in your mind),
and keep your tongue from slander (against anyone);
because no secret word is without result,
and a lying mouth destroys the soul.

12 Do not invite death by the error of your life,
or bring on destruction by the works of your hands;

13 because God did not make (the Klipoth, the Second) death (as our intended end),
and he does not delight in the death of the living (consciousness).

14 For he created all things so that they might exist (in Him);
the generative forces (sexual forces) of the world are wholesome,
and there is no destructive poison in them (sex is holy),
and the dominion of Hades is not on earth (it is in the Klipoth, where fornicators belong).

15 For righteousness (chastity) is immortal.

16 But the ungodly (egos we have within) by their (egotistical) words and deeds (fornication) summoned death (Klipoth);
considering him a friend, they pined away
and made a covenant with him,
because they are fit to belong to his company.

Proverbs 30: Masters and Disciples

The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, even the prophecy: the man spake unto Ithiel, even unto Ithiel and Ucal,

Surely I am more brutish (animal mind: ego) than any (real) man (Manas: the Solar Mind), and have not the understanding (Binah: the Holy Spirit) of a (true) man (who has already eliminated the ego).

I neither learned wisdom (Chokmah: Christ), nor have the knowledge (Daath) of the holy (Resurrected Masters). (For I am merely another intellectual animal who longs to escape the mud of the earth)

Who hath ascended up into heaven (and become an illuminated one), or descended (from above as a great Bodhisattva)? who hath gathered the wind (Ruach: spirit) in his fists (incarnating the Being)? who hath bound the (sexual) waters in a (solar) garment? who hath established all the ends of the (philosophical) earth (and died and risen again)? what is his name (the name of the Being), and what is his son's name (the name of his Bodhisattva), if thou canst tell (with your animal mind, filled with beliefs and theories)?

Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

Add thou not unto his (sacred) words (the teachings of Gnosis), lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar (for who can give advice but he who has accomplished it?).

Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die:

Remove far from me vanity and lies (do not come to me claiming to be awakened or a master): give me neither poverty nor riches (do not withhold anything from the Gnostic wisdom, nor give too much); feed me with (spiritual) food convenient for me (for my level of Being):

Lest I be full (stuffed with beliefs and theories), and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be (spiritually) poor, and steal (teachings and theories), and take the name of my God in vain (by following your example, and claiming to be that which I am not).

Accuse not a servant (the human soul, by gossiping and criticizing about others) unto his (inner) master (for everyone has divinity within), lest he (the law of karma) curse thee, and thou be found guilty.

There is a generation (of spiritualists) that curseth their (inner) father, and doth not bless their (divine) mother.

There is a generation (of religious fanatics) that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.

There is a generation (of Gnostics), O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up (in false piety).

There is a generation (of so-called initiates), whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor (sincere initiates) from off the earth, and the (spiritually) needy from among men.

The horseleach (vampire) hath two daughters (lilith and nahemah), crying, Give, give. There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough:

The grave (is always hungry to consume the souls of men, and men are always rushing towards death, by means of fornication, adultery, envy, jealousy, mystical pride, etc etc etc all of which belong to the abyss);

and the barren womb (of the Divine Mother; barren due to our fornication; only the sincere initiate restores the fecundity of their Divine Mother; so long as it is barren, She is hungry for her restoration);

the (philosophical) earth (the physical body) that is not filled with (sexual) water; (those who fornicate, who waste the sexual energy through the orgasm, through foolish sentimentality and fanaticism, and through mental fornication, are left with an empty earth: a pit or void of emptiness that gnaws at the soul and causes great despair and doubt)

and the (infernal) fire (of the kundabuffer) that saith not, It is enough. (for the inverted, passionate fires are never satisfied with our lustful activity, thus those fires will only grow until they consume the fool who feeds them)

The (psychological) eye that mocketh at his (inner) father, and despiseth to obey his (divine) mother, the ravens (of the Ray of Saturn) of the valley (of death) shall pick it out, and the young eagles (angelic intelligences) shall eat it (until the soul is cleansed of crime and can return into transmigration once more; this is the Second Death).

There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not:

The way of an eagle in the air (those initiates who have conquered the mind); the way of a serpent upon a rock (those initiates who have awakened the kundalini); the way of a ship in the midst of the sea (those initiates who serve the Being and navigate the waters of life with intelligence); and the way of a man with a maid (those initiates who know how to practice scientific chastity; for I know this way, and I seek to learn the others).

Such is the way of an adulterous woman: she eateth (of sin, by indulging the desires of the ego), and wipeth her mouth (to hide her actions of mind, heart, and tongue), and saith, I have done no wickedness (for she is a liar to herself and others).

For three things the (philosophical) earth (the physical body) is disquieted, and for four which it cannot bear:

For a servant (an ego, an I) when he reigneth (over our three brains);

and a fool when he is filled (feeding himself) with meat (the indulgences of the ego: mystical pride, condemnation of others, self-praise, etc);

For an odious (hateful) woman (our mind) when she is married (to our consciousness; for where there is hate there can be no love. As long as we are attached to our anger, resentment and criticism of others, we cannot love);

and an handmaid (spiritually impoverished soul) that is heir to her mistress (her Divine Mother; for so long as we are spiritually poor, we cannot receive the inheritance of the consciousness; thus, we suffer).

There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise: (for they reflect conscious values that we need, instead of the egotistical ones we rely on)

The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer; (be diligent)

The conies (rabbits) are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks; (be resourceful)

The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands; (be independent)

The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces. (be humble)

There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going:

A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any; (be brave)

A greyhound; an he goat also; and a king, against whom there is no rising up. (be strong)

If thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself (and claiming to be a great initiate or master), or if thou hast thought evil (against anyone in your three brains), lay thine hand upon thy mouth. (recriminate yourself and cease to behave like an idiot)

Surely the churning of milk bringeth forth butter, and the wringing of the nose bringeth forth blood: so the forcing of wrath bringeth forth strife. (your own hands bring suffering; therefore, recognize your state of spiritual poverty.)

He who advises from his state of ignorance only infects others with his ignorance.

Amos 5: Your Beliefs and Theories

Hear ye this word which I take up against you, even a lamentation, O (psychological) house (mind) of Israel (consciousness). (Each of us is a house of Israel, for ISis-amunRA-ELohim is our creator)

The (Divine) virgin (Mother) of Israel is fallen (in disgrace due to our fornication and sin); she shall no more rise (upon our spinal column as a serpent of Brass): she is forsaken upon her land (us); there is none to raise her up (the staff, as Moses did).

For thus saith the Lord GOD to the house of Israel; The city that went out (into manifestation) by a thousand shall leave an hundred, and that which went forth by an hundred shall leave ten (for the consciousness becomes successively more trapped in ego)

For thus saith the LORD unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me (your own inner Being), and ye shall live (as a consciousness):

But seek not Bethel (intellectualism), nor enter into Gilgal (beliefs, sentimentality and fanaticism), and pass not to Beersheba (indulgence in materialism and sensation): for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Bethel shall come to nought.

Seek the LORD (YHVH), and ye shall live (as a consciousness); lest he break out like (devouring) fire in the (psychological) house of Joseph (that is: you), and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel (thus you will end with nothing).

Ye who turn judgment (conscience) to wormwood (bitterness), and hurl righteousness (virtue) to the ground (through fornication in all three brains),

Seek him that maketh the seven stars (Pleiades) and Orion, and turneth the (psychological) darkness into the (conscious) dawn (for by Him is Awakening found), and maketh the (cosmic) day dark with (cosmic) night (for He established all the Laws that manage nature): that calleth for the (sexual) waters of the (divine cosmic) sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the (philosophical) earth (through your endocrine system, providing you with sexual strength): YHVH is his name:

It is He who hurls destruction (karma) upon (psychological) strongholds (theories, doctrines, beliefs), so that ruin comes upon fortresses (of the mind)!

They hate him (conscious judgment, the conscience) that rebuketh (the ego) in the gate (of the senses), and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly.

Forasmuch therefore as you impose a tax upon (steal energy from) the poor (the undeveloped consciousness), and ye take from him a levy of grain (the seed, the sperm, the sexual matter), ye have built (psychological) houses of hewn (manmade) stone (your fortresses of the mind, in which you have great confidence), but ye (your consciousness) shall not dwell in them (for they are manmade and illusory); ye have planted pleasant vineyards (your psychological garden in which you indulge in pleasures you believe to be holy), but ye shall not drink (sacred) wine of them (for the eucharist can only come from Christ).

For I know your manifold transgressions (wrong actions) and your mighty sins: they (your egos) afflict the just (the conscience), they take a bribe (of egotistical pleasures), and they turn aside the poor (consciousness) in the gate (of the senses) from their right (to receive wisdom by the transformation of impressions).

Therefore the prudent (who wants to know YHVH, their own inner divinity) shall keep (hermetic) silence in that time; for it is an evil time.

Seek good (comprehension), and not evil (self-obsessed pursuits), that ye may live (as a consciousness): and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall (truly) be with you, as ye have spoken (claimed falsely).

Hate the evil (that is within you), and love the good (that is within you), and establish judgment (CONSCIENCE) in the gate (of the senses): it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious (merciful) unto the remnant (last vestiges) of Joseph (your consciousness).

Therefore the LORD, the God of hosts, the LORD, saith thus; Wailing shall be in all streets; and they (all your psychological aggregates) shall say in all the highways (passages of your mind), Alas! alas! and they shall call the husbandman to mourning, and such as are skilful of lamentation to wailing.

And in all (your psychological) vineyards shall be wailing: for I will pass through thee (as the bringer of death), saith the LORD.

Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness (death to the ego), and not light.

As if a man did flee from a lion (karma), and a bear (animal passions) met him; or went into the house (mind), and leaned his hand on the wall (psychological structures: beliefs, theories), and a serpent bit him (as the Israelites were bitten and died spiritually).

Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness (to the ego), and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it? (Are you not experiencing such a spiritual darkness now? Do you not long to leave the darkness of your mind, and enter into the Light of the Truth?)

I hate, I despise your feast days (celebrations of materialism and sensuality), and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies (of theories and intellectualism).

Though ye offer me burnt offerings (so-called sacrifices) and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts (those filthy animals in your mind).

Take thou away from me the noise of thy (psychological) songs; for I will not hear the (self-obsessed) melody of thy viols.

But let judgment (Geburah / conscience / karmic law) run down as (flood) waters, and righteousness (virtue, Law) as a mighty stream (which will drown you if you remain identified with your mental creations, but will redeem you like Noah if you cease to be identified and awaken your consciousness).

Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?

But ye have borne the tabernacle of your (demonic) Moloch and Chiun your (mental) images, the star of your (psychological) god (your theories, beliefs and attachments), which ye made for yourselves.

Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus (into the Abyss), saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts.
