Well what I found most interesting about my mothers experience was she has been a Christian for over 30 yrs. and some of the things in her visions went against her beliefs. For example, while under the Sphinx, Michael told her....Ra was God....but yet this got polluted, as it always does by men.

Ok, my first question is this... How does one go about meditating in the proper way? I have tried many times, but I find that I have a hard time clearing my mind of stupid insignificant thoughts.

Who were Jesus speaking to when he said that the kingdom was within them?
Be careful with words.
After all most of us have been taught that when we die we will go to heaven.

Doesn't anybody understand that the "rulers of darkness of this world" are the anti-Christ and that they are in opposition to the God of truth.

The pharisees. Do you think I answer questions without looking up the full context?
I was trying to give the short answer but you just had to argue.
Then once we cross reference Jesus' other sayings, it becomes clear the spiritual kingdom of God is within spirit-filled believers. Then we'll have the physical kingdom in the future. Jesus clarified for the apostles but like He mostly did with the Pharisees, He left them with cryptic remarks then left.
Exactly! You can take 10 preachers and just one scripture and get 10 diiferent interpretations of said scripture, yet they will all tell you they were led by the spirit and given understanding!
Of course. I just got handed a bit of information from a friend to get put up on his blog. Seems that according to the histories that he has read, the primary purpose of the Crusades was to establish a base to launch an attack against the Pope's arch-rival, the Eastern Church that was headquartered in Baghdad.
Early Gnostic Christians believed that the kingdom was within all of us. Of course they were snuffed out.
