It finally clicks. For several years, I have had a book of translations for all of the Nag Hammadi Library. These Gnostic texts were interesting to
me, but I never bought into the story of the Presumptuous Demiurge responsible for the creation of the physical universe and the physical aspect of
humanity. It wasn't until recently that a confluence of events and epiphanies brought it full circle in my mind. I won't go into the problems in our
local church that run parallel to this story, but I will share with you the path to my epiphany.
My recent threads have outlined Yahweh Gone Wild, or my recent view of the fallen Son of God. This view leads me back to the true God and a search
for him. It was at that moment yesterday that I realized that the true God would not be manifest into error. He would remain hidden, yet evident to
anyone who realizes Him in the heart. This is for good reason, as you will come to see.
One of the ATS users mentioned the Gnostic Tripartite Tractate
, a document I have read many times. I
have learned to follow synchronicity. If something is mentioned to my view, I typically take it off the shelf and read. Last night, the entire story
came alive to me. It all made sense. Although I will not outline it here, I wanted to make sure that I end my threads with the path to my
enlightenment. If you are interested, you can follow the same path out of the confusion.
There are three documents that I believe hold keys to the story of our universe and the mystery the hidden Father holds for us. The Bible is the
narrative of Yahweh, the Son of God (First Aeon) that created through presumption (not by the command of the Father). Even though the creation was
not by the command of the Father, it was by His will. As we will later learn from the Tripartite
, salvation is from this process of a Father allowing the Son to move away from home as a prodigal.
Although the Tractate does not cover this, I believe there is one more hidden aspect that we have yet to realize. I glean this from the letters of
Hebrew. The Tractate indicates that some of the Son's creation will enter perdition, or hell. They make the choice to deny the Son. It is at this
point that I realize what the Father may be up to in this. There might just be a final twist to this story.
The twist is simple. For the Father to be Holy, HIS creation must be holy as well. When He said it is good and rested in Genesis 2, he then allowed
the Son to create in presumption (including making the snake). It is at this point that the Son must confess. Confession is required of humanity,
but the Son has never confessed the true nature of creation to us. Accordingly, Genesis 9 accounts the blood shed in history to the cross of the
first century. By this blood, it is said that mankind is set free. There is a slight problem here. The blood was not to set us free only, it was
also to account for Yahweh in the OT and the blood he shed. That sin has not been confessed.
Symbolically, the nail in the hand keeps the Savior here with us until every last soul is saved. Nothing can be lost.
It is at this point that I believe the coming turning point in our co-creative history brings the double helical twist to the story. The Seed (NUN)
sits on the Thron (SIN). Unless the thorn is fully removed by confession, then it remains on the seed. The Son must confess so that His enemies can
be forgiven. We must then forgive our enemy. Until the confession of both occurs, the nail remains in the seed.
He is the Aleph Tav. He is the first one in and the last one out. Before the door can be closed on this creation, nothing can be left behind. The
nail of creation is in the hand.
"Not only do humans need redemption, but also the angels, too, need redemption, along with the image and the rest of the Pleromas of the aeons and
the wondrous powers of illumination. So that we might not be in doubt in regard to the others, even the Son himself, who has the position of redeemer
of the Totality, needed redemption as well, - he who had become man, - since he gave himself for each thing which we need, we in the flesh, who are
his Church. Now, when he first received redemption from the word which had descended upon him, all the rest received redemption from him, namely those
who had taken him to themselves. For those who received the one who had received (redemption) also received what was in him."
When on the cross, Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." And they divided up his clothes by casting lots."
We are forgiven already and HIS debt is paid. We must forgive the Son to receive this gift. Making confession to the Son is our confession of
forgiveness to Him. He has already forgiven us. What does this say to those who have refused the words of Christ on the Cross?
Now that I fully understand the story, "I forgive the Son."
I am glad he made the choice to suffer in my place. If you read the Tractate, you
may come to realize the lengths He went to repent of his own presumption.
I never realized until today. That is my confession. I also confess that I do not fully understand. No matter. The story was in my heart from the
beginning. The Father left it there, hidden as his own manifestation in all of us.
The Father is Invariant Symmetry. We are Translational Symmetry.
"They will think pleasant thoughts. They are services for her. She will give them their requital for all that which the aeons will think about. He
is an emanation from them, so that, just as Christ did his will which he brought forth and exalted the greatnesses of the Church and gave them to her,
so will she be a thought for these. And to men he gives their eternal dwelling places, in which they will dwell, leaving behind the attraction toward
the defect, while the power of the Pleroma pulls them up in the greatness of the generosity and the sweetness of the aeon which pre-exists. This is
the nature of the entire begetting of those whom he had when he shone on them in a light which he revealed [...]. Just as his [...] which will be
[...], so too his lord, while the change alone is in those who have changed. "
The third document is the Kore Kosmou, which I have already partially outlined in a few threads:
For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
This is the central point for all of us. Simply acknowledge and forgive. The Father was Hidden the whole time, waiting for us to learn love for the
Son and for the Son to learn from us the same.
AMEN (True / Lamb)
