Sorry about this long post, I was trying to keep it short.
This same message is in the bible, but covered in darkness. Like the presenter speaking of gnosis, who pits gnostic texts vs. the christian texts,
often it is assumed that these are opposed to each other. What I say is that in the midst of the corruption of the texts, literally altered by the
"lying pens of the scribes", or "spiritually" altered by the lying minds of the theologian, in the midst of this is the seed of truth, a
meta-narrative pertaining to these very concepts.
In the midst of the garden stood two trees.
The Tree of Life; which is ONE
The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil; which is TWO, duality
Some have theorized that Evil is the absence of Good, or Darkness is the absence of Light. Lets take that concept and expand it, that evil is null…
0. If Evil is 0, we might say that Good is 1.
The Tree of knowledge
of Good and Evil, eating its fruit is entering into a binary system, which is 1's and 0's.
What happened after Adam and Eve ate the fruit? They died, except they didn't right? But it says in that day you will die. They entered the realm
1 Cor 15
20But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. 21For since by a man came death, by a man also came the
resurrection of the dead. 22For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 23But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits,
after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, 24then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished
all rule and all authority and power. 25For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. 26The last enemy that will be abolished
The realm of the flesh is the realm of death. If you do a word study on flesh and spirit, you will see that flesh=death=adam, and
The two trees are both in the midst of the garden, they occupy the same space. The Tree of knowledge (the word in the LXX version of Genesis 2 is
gnosis) of good and evil, duality, the binary system is to be acquainted with, like Adam and eve were acquainted with each other, they knew each
other, we are bound to this matrix of death. When we(adam, all are in adam/flesh) partook of the duality we were subject to death, the realm of
death. Kicked out of the garden.
The other tree in the midst of the garden is the Tree of Life. Unity.
13≈How blessed is the man who finds wisdom
And the man who gains understanding.
14For her profit is better than the profit of silver
And her gain better than fine gold.
15She is more precious than jewels;
And nothing you desire compares with her.
16Long life is in her right hand;
In her left hand are riches and honor.
17Her ways are pleasant ways
And all her paths are peace.
18She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her,
And happy are all who hold her fast.
19The LORD by wisdom founded the earth,
By understanding He established the heavens.
20By His knowledge the deeps were broken up
And the skies drip with dew.
Death is likened to a matrix throughout the bible. Isaiah 25 speaks of the woven covering cast over all people, the veil of death. This veil is the
same word used of the veil in the tabernacle, that was woven of Babylonian design (confusion/death) and had cherubim woven into it. These are
representative of the 2 cherubim that were stationed (the word is tabernacled in Hebrew) at the entrance to the garden. That is what Adam and Eve saw
as they left the garden, but they were looking at themselves, their new selves with the flesh garments they were given to live in this world (no
animals were killed in the narrative). The cherubim also represent the foundations of the cosmos, or the 4 cardinal points, the story of the zodiac
is in them (from Virgo to Leo is the meaning of the sphinx).
The guardian cherub who fell is not Satan but you and I. The king of babylon is our human collective mind that rules over this realm, the matrix or
veil of death that is over our minds.
2 cor 3
15But to this day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their heart
; 16but whenever a person turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
17Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the
glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.
The apocalypse or Revelation, is the UN-veiling, removing the veil that lies over our minds. It has nothing to do with doom porn, nothing to do with
an angry god coming and striking vengeance on puny mortals. That is the lying minds of the theologian, reading the book by the letter, looking at the
outer covering, or husk thinking it is the seed.
Unless the seed falls to the ground and die, it will not bear much fruit.
The kingdom of heaven is like… a seed, a tree, a jewel
The kingdom of heaven is inside
All creation waits with eager longing for the unveiling of the Sons of God (see Galatians for the seed being Christ, and we are that seed) in hope
that the creation will be set free from its bondage to corruption (death, disease) and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
