    The church of Christ sect says the gospel is a means by which one is brought into their church organization: hearing, believing, repenting, being baptized in water, and continuing in their set of rules and regulations.

    The gospel is the good glad news that makes a man leap for joy, the death burial and resurrection of Jesus CHrist for the sins of the world! That’all make ya leap for joy!

    The Gospel is “good news” – and it is just that – news. It is an announcement of what God had done for you. It tells us how God has restored our relationship with Him.

    It is not 7 steps to better living, nor is it about feeling better or living right. In short, its not about us, but rather God and what He has done to bring us into His presence.

    1 Corinthians 15

    1Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

    2By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

    3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

    4And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

    That is the gospel. It is faith in what Jesus did plus nothing.

    The gospel is the story of what Jesus did for us, to save us from our sins – His death, burial and resurrection, without which we would have no hope.

    On an interesting sidebar, the church of Christ (cofC) believes that baptism is REQUIRED for salvation, not something you do AFTER salvation (which I don’t believe is Scriptural). I was brought up in the cofC, and my father was a minister in that sect, so I am intimately familiar with it. When we speak of the gospel, baptism is not a part, as it plays no part in one’s salvation and does not lead to salvation, it stems from salvation.

  5. PART ONE

    What the Hell is it?

    Before we can assess the the true character of God and the Gospel (Loving, Judgment and Eternal Punishment, etc.) We have to ask what is HELL?

    Gehenna, Sheol, Hell…

    So with out religious overtones or undertones I will attempt to give you the purest definition possible…

    Gehenna- Trash Furnace of Jerusalem. At Qumran the trash pit sits below a small cave called ‘Jacobs Bosom’.

    Sheol- The Grave(Burning Torment) No… Symbolic emphasis centering on ones own guilt. Eternally living with regret due to a lack of being true to one’s own self.

    Hell- A hole (Natural or man made)lined with rock blocking out all light and using the subterranean chill of the earth to preserve the harvest goods and meat from environmental elements.

    All three of these places are often sown together as if they are all the same thing or place.

    That is False.

    It is obvious that these places or descriptions rather are not at root the same thing at all.

    Scripture relates that Jesus has the keys to Death, Hell and the Grave.

    So by applying wisdom and knowledge we can deduce that Jesus has the key to ‘Death’ of which we can replace with ‘Fear’, in this case, ‘Fear of the unknown’ of which Jesus has the Key, Cure or Solution. Jesus has the key of Hell, hence then the Key to Preservation from the elements. Jesus has the key to the Grave of which is used to release of the Death, ie, FEAR because of the Revelation of Life… That being the revelation of ones self not as THE ‘I AM’ but of being the ‘I AM’.

    Or Simply Birth.

    The point to make here is not in literal translation (Because it is impossible to give a direct translation due to issues or impossibilities with the art of trans-literation and linguistics)

    The confusion to this problem is cause by the Supposed ‘Saint’ Paul… And the later edition of the ‘Apostles Creed’…

    “I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
    the Creator of heaven and earth,
    and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:

    Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
    born of the Virgin Mary,
    suffered under Pontius Pilate,
    was crucified, died, and was buried.

    He descended into hell.

    The third day He arose again from the dead.

    He ascended into heaven
    and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
    whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

    I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy *catholic church,
    the communion of saints,
    the forgiveness of sins,
    the resurrection of the body,
    and life everlasting.

    Amen.”

    The concept of life after death is no New thing and even existed long before Paul, the Bible, Christianity, Judaism and Jesus.

    Paul originally preaches a doctrine of literal bodily resurrection or ‘FLESH & BLOOD’ resurrection but later recants this concept after realizing that this teaching actually terrified his audience (1 Cor. 15:13-16). Of which he later retracted (1 Cor. 15:44, 50-55).

    Incidentally, if you read the entire chapter you can see how full of crap he actually is in trying to save face for the things he taught at Corinth considering the ‘Flesh & Blood’ resurrection. He continues to back pedal as (if) to hide his blatant contradiction.

    As a student of scripture, history and religion, namely the ‘Dead Sea Scrolls, Nag Hammadi Library and the thousands of other Gospel and scriptural sources you can only discover that the Nazarenes, Hellenist Jews (and the Essenes) did not teach bodily resurrection. Kind of odd the story of Jesus by Paul mirrors so many other -behind- the ‘Sun’ Gods religions. Paul knew the the truth and that it doesn’t sell seats in a temple because in truth it is way too much work, commitment and dedication.

    What they did teach was (Pardon the play) ‘Be here now.’ Hence, the figure of speech describing this place of awareness, ‘I AM’. With that understanding in place before you read the Gospel one will then find that they can discern the truth of scripture. Nature… Procession of the stars, planets and stars ought to declare truth to us that no man could ever exceed… As many Christian do understand the majesty of Gods creation. You would think that with the answers blatantly plastered in our face that we NOT be easily seduced by lies but yet that is exactly what has happened.

    The Gospel = Death, Burial and Resurrection. Tell me what comes first? Death? burial? or Resurrection?

    What is the Resurrection?

    For the answer on must only look to the Gospel itself… It’s not so much the answer not as much as it is the right question.

    Again, what comes first? Death, Burial or Resurrection?

    (Mat 20:16- “So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.”)

    Work with in the fundamental concept and reverse the words; Resurrection, burial and Death.

    Lets ask another question… What is Resurrection?

    Do I hear Objection… what its irrelevant?

    I say not, since the ‘Real’ issue of the Gospel is about HELL and most Christians understand that those who have the Resurrection will never taste Death… So the Resurrection has everything to do with HELL.

    Remember Jesus does have the Key’s to Death, Hell and the Grave and he did descend into the lower parts of the Earth and there conquered the Grave, Death and Hell and thus returned to the outer Earth.

    Do you notice anything yet?

    Okay, again we must look to the Gospel for the answer to this mystery.

    THE FRAME WORK:

    The Sun is Masculine
    The Moon is very Hermaphroditic
    The Earth is Feminine.

    Jesus is the Word… (John 1: 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.)

    Word is Flesh.

    Flesh is Seed.

    Seed is Tree.

    Tree is Fruit.

    Fruit is Life.

    Life is what or better who?

    Now do you see the pattern?

    (John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.)

    I AM the way, I AM the truth, I AM the life. Before Jesus began his ministry he came to the Jordan River or as in symbolic terms in the book of Revelation , ‘The River of Life’ and was Baptized in the waters of Life and coming out of the water received the Holy Spirit by way of Dove descending upon him.

    When Jesus states that “…no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” He doesn’t mean that he does all the work but actually refers to his example… Hence the main reason for the Gospel.

    It is enough to say that Jesus received the resurrection by way of the Holy Spirit… Although in reality this easier said than done. Except, if we look at with a New perspective and open perspective… The the interior of Mother Earth would be what if souls were there..?

    That would mean the Jesus (The Word or Sperm) descended into the lower parts of the Earth… The Womb.

    No… You disagree?

    When the King James (A Nazarene not a Pagan) 1611 was written (By the Underground Stream) Shakespeare understood the code with in the Gospel so, in order to retain the integrity of the coded ancient words some he left untouched phonetically speaking and others he inter connected English words that originally were combined as in most languages such as; womb with tomb; life with wife; death with breath; love with dove, etc…

    (Job 1:21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.)

    And again…

    (Ecc 5:15 As he came forth of his mother’s womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand.)

    Having our body placed in a tomb after we die is symbolic of being placed in the womb before we are born.

    Jesus says, “…Heaven and Earth will pass away but my Words will never pass away” So if word and sperm are at root the same thing then it would be true to say it is DNA.

    So Jesus says, (Translated) “… Heaven and Earth will pass away but my -DNA- will never pass away.”

    What that means is that I AM eternal and that we have different states of being like Heaven and Earth in the idealistic or symbolic sense or meaning in scripture. Earthly and Heavenly principles, ordinances or Laws do not outweigh Love.

    “…for many be called, but few chosen.”

    Rather, If I be wheat then I AM.

    HEAVEN

    HEAVEN : HE – AVEN

    HE – is the Feminine quality of YHWH or Yod Heh Vav Heh = Father, Mother, Brother, Sister.

    AVEN – means Wicked or Twisted and even Darkened.

    Heaven = Mother Wicked or Wicked Mother.

    So Hell is a place of Darkness? of Wickedness? of Twistedness?

    These descriptions are all in the word Heaven. SO Heaven and Hell are actually the same place sifted through our ‘Chosen’ perception.

    (Mat 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.)

    (Mat 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.)

    So if I loose Hell then Hell will be my reality, more so if I think I deserve it and if I loose Heaven then Heaven will be my reality, more so if I think I deserve it.

    So resurrection is more a promised possession of the ‘Chosen’ … Not blood and bones resurrection of our current bodies but
    one of reincarnation of our DNA.

    So receiving genetic inheritance thus creating a conduit for Spirits to manifest in the Flesh thorough the bloodline that Jesus fostered.

    In the Gospel of Thomas we read, ’29. Jesus said, “If the flesh came into being because of spirit, that is a marvel, but if spirit came into being because of the body, that is a marvel of marvels.”

    I can confess that I am not the Body. If God be Spirit then I am spirit also.

    That is the Gospel… And Great News for the hundreds of thousands of disfigured, Trans-gendered and deformed human beings that live and have lived on planet Earth.

    If Jesus being the Incarnation of the omni-potent, omni-present all knowing, unconditional loving God taught the parable of the and the tare… What does it mean to be Chosen? Or rather what does it mean to be genetic offspring of Jesus, God incarnate?

    I AM in God as Jesus was in God and Jesus say’s so.

    What is the Parable of the Wheat and Tare…

    (Mat 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.)

    If I write any more in this vain it will be worth a chapter in my Novel.

  6. PART TWO

    TRUTH remains TRUTH.

    YOU are afraid… Frightened… Rightfully so…

    YOU are what you are and I AM what I am…

    I could steal, kill and destroy but it changes nothing of who I really AM.

    You cannot EARN your way into Heaven… That is a Man-made mechanism for use of control… It’s a measuring rod of self worth.

    Lets look at the root of this word….

    I love Shakespear!

    EAR-N… Earning is Listening… But ‘N’ is being used as letter of Declension
    denoting in this case the tense of this NOUN.

    [Declension?]

    Hear it turns the Word (NOUN into a Action… Almost a Verb) ‘Ear’ into EARN… Something that ‘has been’ done – ‘Earn’ As in – ‘It must be done or you must do this to EARN’… Not the result of what has been done as in, ‘EARNED’

    Are you Listening?

    YOU are either in Heaven or YOU are in Hell… You are either one way or the other… YOu are Either the Wheat bearing fruit or YOU are the Tarem an empty Husk lacking Fruit…

    If then again…

    HE-AVEN

    He – is the Feminine aspect in the Dynast family name of God- YHWH (Yod-He-Vav-He).

    AVEN – Means Wickedness or Iniquity.

    Where is Heaven? In Feminine Iniquity or Wickedness as the Name Implies?

    In the Womb of the Goddess is Heaven.

    Hell is a dark void… Heaven is a Fruitful exspanse whether we see it or not… All the Abyss, none the less.

    This is a matter of FAITH…. You cannot grow faith or have less faith or even lose faith…

    Faith is a matter of FACT, PLACE and / or STATE. You have the Word / Vibrational Pattern in you or do Not have it in you…

    Better you are either from HEAVEN or you are NOT from Heaven.

    IF you are not in FACT from Heaven, You’re in FACT from Hell.

    Something must be done to Earn anything… You Must Listen to make it to HEAVEN…

    Really?

    IS it TRUE or FALSE?

    IT is obviously TRUE if we use the word in the correct fashion but FALSE if it becomes falsified when a MAN twists and manipulates a words meaning thus recreating the definition.

    [EARN?]

    Since all things are just Vibrational Patterns, that is all we are…Vibrational Patterns.

    Heaven and Hell are Vibrational Patterns we Align ourselves with… YOU know that a Pattern is a Habit, a repeated process, mankind’s DNA is weakened to addictions of all sorts and types… We Revel in Patterns.

    So we can use deductive reasoning, there-by assuming that Patterns can be manipulated… So, then it would be reasonable to suggest, that if we focus our Vibrational habits into the world we live, ie; Abuse, Addiction and Fear or Honesty, Forgiveness and Love… Then we can and do effect our Universe there-by creating Heaven or Hell.

    You then, either Vibrationally match Heaven or you match Hell…

    Lets break away from the apathetic statement… “It’s just the way things are…”

    Whats my point?

    We can create Heaven out of Hell or Hell out of Heaven… Its up to us or at least up to those that have the Word of God in them… DNA.

    We are in Heaven… And it is being over run by the ideals of Ownership and Control… Thus Creating Hell or exactly what the word implies, ‘A dark hole in which you bury and store food’.

    [HELL?]

    You cannot own a Planet but I a guarantee a MAN thinks he can and not only thinks he can… He thinks he has the Right too.

    This is a Disease that must be eradicated from our DNA… We can either willingly allow this deficit to be removed by our submission to the Greater good of us all… Meaning we lower our personal Banners of Ownership, Power and Control, ie; the EGO or You will be sifted like Wheat… And if you are a HUSK then you will be burned in the Fire and if Seed remain then you will Inherit the Land…

    New Heavens and New Earth!

    Devils Advocate.

    Where I can agree with a collective conscience and that we are made of the same biological and molecular matter… We are not all from the same place.

    (Personally I cannot stand the ‘New Age’ idea that we are all little match flames from the big fire in the sky. That is the same as Christian saying we are all children of Adam and Eve. It’s not true.)

    Outside the girded framework… Outside Time and Space.

    There is something greater.

    ‘Individuality’ is a state in which ‘WE’ accept as well this manifestation from something greater… That is if ‘ALL’ is from the something greater…

    In theory ‘We are all family in this Earth’… But beyond our scope of understanding the is… IS.

    Now with regard to Unity, I agree we need to drop individual EGO when considering our plight as manifested beings to communal EGO.

    But Sovereignty is a necessary Evil.

    Spiritual awakenings are individual… Hard as it may seem to all… We die alone and yet pass on together or with Individuals from the same pre-existence as we.

    Please, consider Individual life beyond matter, beyond manifestation… Beyond Space Time… Beyond Reason and Understanding.

    The idea Beyond Energy, do I exist?

    That can only be answered by ones Self.

    I AM is not a collective of the ALL… It’s a collective of chosen Matter… Chosen Manifestation…

    Result: Manifestations of known individual consciousness before individual conscious manifestation.

    I AM can be everything but yet remains Sovereign.

    Is Spirit just Energy or is a Spirit a conduit of radical Energy… And the beginning of collective radical matter?

    Magnetic emotional Gravity is the guide to Matter, Manifestation and the pathway for vibrational light to pass through.

    What is life in the Beyond?

    A Time to Evolve…

    Do you believe that we have the choice to evolve or not?

    Evolution is a constant because it is a descriptive title of a particular type of Change.

    As we know, ‘Change’ is a constant… So we exist in a constant state of change.

    Manifestation evolves without our choice in the matter (pardon the pun).

    Can I exist without change?

    To exist without change would be the same to say “I Am the same yesterday, today and tomorrow”… A Constant state of ‘Same’ is the place outside Space Time.

    Only superior beings evolve… The rest are to be burned in the fire.

    While in this present state we all are the same matter we are not the same Spirit… Well, not all manifestations have Spirits.

    The Holy Spirit is the all-consuming fire.

    Love is the Holy Spirit and not all is of Love.

    Go Figure…

    Mysteries of Mysteries.
