Is it possible to understand God, an Eternal aspect of infinity? How can God be unchanged, yet allow for a changing universe? Answer the question below, and you see why we were created and how we repeat the same process below that is in progression above. The entire universe is a garden and God suffers the hoe in his patch of ground. Once you can answer the question below, you can see above.

What did God use for materials to construct the universe?

This is a question that the Hebrews scholars have asked since antiquity to demonstrate what emanation of the Image of God represents. According to the Hebrews, God opened a void within Himself and then refilled that void with Himself. We then see what the Son of God is. Keep in mind, the Son is immortal and moving. God is Eternal and unmoved. Again, the question.

What did God use for materials to construct the universe?

1 Colossians 1: 15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

The Son is the perfected Image of God. That image was then used to render all of what we see in the Cosmos--the void opened to hold the emanated image. The Cosmos is the macrocosm that is the Son and we are the microcosm that is the Son's image. Why? The Son contains the whole just as we contain the whole. We must be raised to become the perfected image that the Son was in the beginning.

Genesis has two creation stories. One is the Elohim creating paradise. Genesis 2 is the willing involution of the Son so that his flock could be shepherded back to the Father. In reality, all of it represents the original Father and His involution within the void. The purpose is to broaden infinity and for the Delight of the Father. When Christ says, "I and the Father are one," He is making a broader statement than simply saying He is God. We are all part of God, yet there can only be ONE totality. The Son is that totality as the emanation.

Again, the question: What material did God use to construct the universe? Consciousness. The only way for One consciousness to be divided is for that One to become many. Involution into the void allows the Spirit of God to fall into matter as a process to rediscover the whole. The Father is Adam and then Abraham. The Son is Issac and then Jesus. The Holy Spirit is then given to mankind as a final aspect of the process to develop Holy Consciousness.

How does the child stand on His own? He must be released from the grip of the father and mother. How does the Prodigal Son return? Love for the Father. Where did the Prodigal Son go? The wilderness in the mud.

Gospel of Philip

When the pearl is cast down into the mud, it becomes greatly despised, nor if it is anointed with balsam oil will it become more precious. But it always has value in the eyes of its owner. Compare the Sons of God: wherever they may be, they still have value in the eyes of their Father.

Gospel of the Nazarenes (Lection 88)

12. For by involution and evolution shall the salvation of all the world be accomplished: by the Descent of Spirit into matter, and the Ascent of matter into Spirit through the ages.

Involution is turning in on one's self (within). Compare this to Luke 17:

20 Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, 21 nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.”

Jesus was the FIRST to have the Holy Spirit and a body representing the new blood (DNA) that we will all receive.

Additionally, from the gospel of Philip:

A Hebrew makes another Hebrew, and such a person is called "proselyte". But a proselyte does not make another proselyte. [...] just as they [...] and make others like themselves, while others simply exist.

----A Kinsman of the Son makes another Kinsman, and such a person is called a stranger. But a stranger does not make another stranger. A stranger is simply passing through to another place.

The slave seeks only to be free, but he does not hope to acquire the estate of his master. But the son is not only a son but lays claim to the inheritance of the father. Those who are heirs to the dead are themselves dead, and they inherit the dead. Those who are heirs to what is living are alive, and they are heirs to both what is living and the dead. The dead are heirs to nothing. For how can he who is dead inherit? If he who is dead inherits what is living he will not die, but he who is dead will live even more.

------The slave (Bond servant to the Son) seeks only to be free, but he does not hope to aquire the estate of the master (God). But the Son is not only a Son but lays claim to the inheritance of the Father. Those who are heirs to the dead (Slaves of sin and death) are themselves dead (Locked in Baptism into the water), and they inherit another life of death. The dead are heirs to nothing. For how can he who is dead inherit? If he who is dead inherits what is living he will not die, but he who is dead will live even more (In the water) because of those who find life. It's a process that only ends when it is no longer needed.

A Gentile does not die, for he has never lived in order that he may die. He who has believed in the truth has found life, and this one is in danger of dying, for he is alive. Since Christ came, the world has been created, the cities adorned, the dead carried out. When we were Hebrews, we were orphans and had only our mother, but when we became Christians, we had both father and mother.

-----A Gentile (Lacking the Word) does not die, for he has never lived in order that he may die. He who has believed in the truth has found life (received the word), and this one is in danger of dying (Finding the water), for he is alive (Soul wakes up). Since Christ came, the world has been created, the cities adorned, the dead carried out (Baptism of Spirit). When we were Hebrews (Kinsman), we were orphans and had only our mother (Spirit), but when we became Christians (Adopted into the family of the Son), we had both Father and Mother.

Those who sow in winter reap in summer. The winter is the world, the summer the other Aeon (eternal realm). Let us sow in the world that we may reap in the summer. Because of this, it is fitting for us not to pray in the winter. Summer follows winter. But if any man reap in winter he will not actually reap but only pluck out, since it will not provide a harvest for such a person.

Those who sow in the World reap in the next world to come. Let us sow (Fruit of repentance from baptism) in the world that we may reap in the world to come. Because of this, it is fitting for us not to pray in the winter (for more world). The world to come follows the world of material reality. But if a man reap in the world (Goods and wealth) he will not actually reap but only pluck out, since it will not provide a harvest for such a person (in the world to come).

Does this give you a better view of what the Father represents and why we must all have the Father and Mother (Holy Spirit)? Jesus is the firstfruits of this process and the one that we are all Shepherded by. The Trinity of Father, Son and Spirit is the Trinity that IS God.

I will try to get through the entire Gospel of Philip in this thread.

To be continued....

Christ (Son of God in the Flesh) came to ransom (Debt paid to God) some, to save (rescue for later resurrection) others, to redeem (Compensate for the faults or bad aspects) others. He ransomed (debt paid to God) those who were strangers (not kinsman) and made them his own (those who are adopted do nothing to deserve the adoption). And he set his own apart (Israel), those whom he gave as a pledge according to his plan. It was not only when he appeared that he voluntarily laid down his life, but he voluntarily laid down his life from the very day the world came into being (The Cross is a symbol of what originates us as the sacrifice of the Son). Then he came first in order to take it, since it had been given as a pledge. It fell into the hands of robbers (Fallen beings that are Enoch's Watchers) and was taken captive (Hostages), but he saved it. He redeemed (compensated for the faults or bad aspects) the good people in the world as well as the evil (He goes after all lost sheep).

Light and Darkness, life and death, right and left, are brothers of one another (Duality of free will). They are inseparable (The same, like degrees of temperature). Because of this neither are the good good, nor evil evil, nor is life life, nor death death. For this reason each one will dissolve into its earliest origin (Singularity and Unity). But those who are exalted above the world are indissoluble, eternal (Returned to Word and Saved for the world to come).

Names given to the worldly are very deceptive, for they divert our thoughts from what is correct to what is incorrect (Multiplicity contains error from what preexists and is eternal). Thus one who hears the word "God" does not perceive what is correct, but perceives what is incorrect. So also with "the Father" and "the Son" and "the Holy Spirit" and "life" and "light" and "resurrection" and "the Church (Ekklesia)" and all the rest - people do not perceive what is correct but they perceive what is incorrect, unless they have come to know what is correct (Symbolic meaning and Spiritual Truth of the Eternal reality). The names which are heard are in the world [...] deceive. If they were in the Aeon (eternal realm), they would at no time be used as names in the world. Nor were they set among worldly things. They have an end in the Aeon (eternity of time from beginning to end).

One single name is not uttered in the world (The name above all names), the name which the Father gave to the Son (King of Kings and Lord of Lords); it is the name above all things: the name of the Father. For the Son would not become Father unless he wore the name of the Father. Those who have this name know it, but they do not speak it. But those who do not have it do not know it (The name of his character -- LOVE).

But truth brought names into existence in the world for our sakes, because it is not possible to learn it (truth) without these names (Multiplicity of images for learning). Truth is one single thing (Axiom of all axioms -- LOVE); it is many things and for our sakes to teach about this one thing in love through many things. The rulers (archons - WATCHERS) wanted to deceive man, since they saw that he had a kinship with those that are truly good (TRUTH). They took the name of those that are good and gave it to those that are not good, so that through the names they might deceive him and bind them to those that are not good (See this Thread). And afterward, what a favor they do for them! They make them be removed from those that are not good and place them among those that are good (The light shines in a dark place and the darkness could not overcome it). These things they knew, for they wanted to take the free man (Mankind created free) and make him a slave to them forever (Pollution of the baptismal waters of the river of life).

These are powers which [...] man, not wishing him to be saved, in order that they may [...]. For if man is saved, there will not be any sacrifices [...] and animals will not be offered to the powers. Indeed, the animals were the ones to whom they sacrificed (Demon worship). They were indeed offering them up alive, but when they offered them up, they died. As for man, they offered him up to God dead, and he lived (Through the sacrifice of Christ).

----The beast to be sacrificed is the animal of mankind in the water. We are here to overcome this nature and replace it with a holy nature to escape death for true life. Baptism is the process in the water of the river of life, which was polluted by the thieves (Watchers).

Before Christ came, there was no bread (Ability to solve bread of shame and give back to God what is His) in the world, just as Paradise, the place were Adam was, had many trees to nourish the animals but no wheat to sustain man (Again, fruit of goodness back to God). Man used to feed like the animals, but when Christ came, the perfect man, he brought bread (Goodness of Truth and God's Word) from heaven in order that man might be nourished with the food of man (Correct application to exit the water and gain union with God). The rulers thought that it was by their own power and will that they were doing what they did, but the Holy Spirit in secret was accomplishing everything through them as it wished. Truth, which existed since the beginning, is sown everywhere (The Cosmos is the Image of God). And many see it being sown, but few are they who see it being reaped.

------The fruit of the seeds produces the plant. The tree of life is what we construct by our efforts in the wilderness to sow good seed and reap a harvest in the next life. This is all symbolic of the master plan of God to show both sides of darkness and light the truth behind free will and the ability to collapse the wave function of the Word. To avoid the error, we must know truth. Truth is Sophia. Philosophy is the love of Sophia. The truth of Sophia is simple.

Give and receive. Never take.

Some said, "Mary conceived by the Holy Spirit." They are in error. They do not know what they are saying. When did a woman ever conceive by a woman? Mary is the virgin whom no power defiled. She is a great anathema to the Hebrews, who are the apostles and the apostolic men. This virgin whom no power defiled [...] the powers defile themselves. And the Lord would not have said "My Father who is in Heaven" (Mt 16:17), unless he had had another father, but he would have said simply "My father".

---Missing text. There is a great mystery with the Holy Spirit being female. I leave this to others to extract. The Spirit is the key to the entire aspect of consciousness and how the Wave (Son) is collapsed in physics.

The Lord said to the disciples, "[...] from every house. Bring into the house of the Father. But do not take (anything) in the house of the Father nor carry it off."

------All of our efforts here can be summed up with thought and movement only. Taking something is not possible. We must take only what belongs to all of us--Word. The pre-existent truth is the only thing we can use to build our own house.

"Jesus" is a hidden name, "Christ" is a revealed name (Christ is the character of the Son). For this reason "Jesus" is not particular to any language; rather he is always called by the name "Jesus". While as for "Christ", in Syriac it is "Messiah", in Greek it is "Christ". Certainly all the others have it according to their own language. "The Nazarene" is he who reveals what is hidden (Involution and Evolution). Christ has everything in himself, whether man, or angel, or mystery, and the Father.

-----The Cosmos is the Macrocosm. We are the Microcosm. As above, so below.

Those who say that the Lord died first and (then) rose up are in error, for he rose up first and (then) died. If one does not first attain the resurrection, he will not die. As God lives, he would [...].

------ There is missing text here, but the truth behind it is that Christ first sacrificed before creation began. He is the Creation.

No one will hide a large valuable object in something large, but many a time one has tossed countless thousands into a thing worth a penny. Compare the soul. It is a precious thing and it came to be in a contemptible body.

-------The Son is in and through all the Cosmos. He is the Image of God in multiplicity and will return to unity with the Church. Darkness will be left behind.

Some are afraid lest they rise naked (Without Word to build a house). Because of this they wish to rise in the flesh, and they do not know that it is those who wear the flesh who are naked (Holding only thought and movement). It is those who [...] to unclothe themselves who are not naked. "Flesh and blood shall not inherit the kingdom of God" (1 Co 15:50). What is this which will not inherit? This which is on us (Body to hold mind. Mind is the builder). But what is this, too, which will inherit? It is that which belongs to Jesus and his blood (Word). Because of this he said "He who shall not eat my flesh and drink my blood has not life in him" (Jn 6:53). What is it? His flesh is the word, and his blood is the Holy Spirit (This is evident and symbolic. Blood is DNA (reflected Word) and Spirit is consciousness). He who has received these has food and he has drink and clothing (Body for mind to build). I find fault with the others who say that it will not rise. Then both of them are at fault. You say that the flesh will not rise. But tell me what will rise, that we may honor you. You say the Spirit in the flesh, and it is also this light in the flesh. (But) this too is a matter which is in the flesh, for whatever you shall say, you say nothing outside the flesh. It is necessary to rise in this flesh (Water Baptism), since everything exists in it (Word). In this world, those who put on garments are better than the garments (Thoughts are better than the body). In the Kingdom of Heaven, the garments are better than those that put them on (Putting on Truth and Word in context to God).

-------MIDRASH - "Future bliss can neither be imagined, explained, nor described. We know nothing of its nature, form, greatness, or beauty, its quantity or quality. This much one should know, the phrase, "the world to come," does not imply that it is a world yet to be called into existence; it exists already, but the phrase is employed to describe the life into which those who are in the present stage of existence will be transposed when they throw off this mortal coil."

It is through water (Baptism) and fire (Trials) that the whole place is purified (Moved by an unbalanced force)- the visible by the visible, the hidden by the hidden. There are some things hidden through those visible. There is water in water, there is fire in chrism (Holy Anointing).

Jesus took them all by stealth (Baby in a small town), for he did not appear as he was, but in the manner in which they would be able to see him (Kinsman). He appeared to them all. He appeared to the great as great. He appeared to the small as small. He appeared to the angels as an angel, and to men as a man. Because of this, his word hid itself from everyone (image reflects what appears in the reflective surface). Some indeed saw him, thinking that they were seeing themselves, but when he appeared to his disciples in glory on the mount, he was not small. He became great, but he made the disciples great, that they might be able to see him in his greatness (reflection of the Cosmos - Macrocosm).

He said on that day in the thanksgiving, "You who have joined the perfect light with the Holy Spirit, unite the angels with us also, as being the images." Do not despise the lamb (Child of God), for without it, it is not possible to see the king (Eternal Father). No one will be able to go in to the king if he is naked (Separated from Word).

The heavenly man has many more sons than the earthly man (Son is the first born over all creation). If the sons of Adam are many (Cut from one loaf), although they die, how much more the sons of the perfect man (Universe and all galaxies and stars), they who do not die but are always begotten. The father makes a son (image of Himself), and the son has not the power to make a son (But only images of the same Son). For he who has been begotten has not the power to beget (Only become multiplicity through involution), but the son gets brothers for himself, not sons (We are kinsman). All who are begotten in the world are begotten in a natural way, and the others are nourished from the place whence they have been born (Womb and refinery of Earth). It is from being promised to the heavenly place that man receives nourishment (We are not in the image, but the one casting it). [...] him from the mouth. And had the word gone out from that place, it would be nourished from the mouth and it would become perfect (Received from God rather than the image). For it is by a kiss that the perfect conceive and give birth. For this reason we also kiss one another. We receive conception from the grace which is in one another (The unity of two becoming one to create a new creation).

There were three who always walked with the Lord: Mary, his mother, and her sister, and Magdalene, the one who was called his companion. His sister and his mother and his companion were each a Mary.

----Mary is the one that takes care of the son. 2 Timothy explains that the mother receives salvation from caring for the Sons and raising the to God. Man is servant to the World and the family overall. Mother is servant to the Son.

"The Father" and "the Son" are single names; "the Holy Spirit" is a double name. For they are everywhere: they are above, they are below; they are in the concealed, they are in the revealed. The Holy Spirit is in the revealed: it is below. It is in the concealed: it is above.

-----Consciousness and awareness is everything.

The saints are served by evil powers (Present order of fallen material world), for they are blinded by the Holy Spirit into thinking that they are serving an (ordinary) man whenever they do so for the saints (We are all one body, cut from one loaf). Because of this, a disciple asked the Lord one day for something of this world. He said to him, "Ask your mother (Conscious Spirit), and she will give you of the things which are another's (The World belongs to death)."

The apostles said to the disciples, "May our entire offering obtain salt." They called Sophia (Truth) "salt". Without it, no offering is acceptable. But Sophia is barren, without child. For this reason, she is called "a trace of salt". Wherever they will [...] in their own way, the Holy Spirit [...], and her children are many (Truth is in us all and written on our hearts).

What the father possesses belongs to the son, and the son himself, so long as he is small, is not entrusted with what is his. But when he becomes a man, his father gives him all that he possesses.

-----------1 Corinthians 13 - 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Those who have gone astray, whom the spirit begets, usually go astray also because of the Spirit. Thus, by one and the same breath (Spirit), the fire blazes and is put out (By Water Baptism).

Echamoth is one thing and Echmoth, another. Echamoth is Wisdom simply, but Echmoth is the Wisdom of death, which is the one who knows death, which is called "the little Wisdom". (You must be born again).

There are domestic animals, like the bull and the ass and others of this kind (Comparing to people and character of the animal before it is domesticated). Others are wild and live apart in the deserts. Man ploughs the field by means of the domestic animals, and from this he is nourished, he and the animals, whether tame or wild. Compare the perfect man (God raises His Son and us as one in the same). It is through powers which are submissive that he ploughs, preparing for everything to come into being. For it is because of this that the whole place stands, whether the good or the evil, the right and the left (All of it for one purpose -- To raise us up). The Holy Spirit shepherds everyone and rules all the powers, the "tame" ones and the "wild" ones, as well as those which are unique. For indeed he [...] shuts them in, in order that [...] wish, they will not be able to escape.

He who has been created is beautiful, but you would find his sons noble creations (Watchers before the fall). If he were not created, but begotten, you would find that his seed was noble (Son of God). But now he was created (and) he begot (New Creation). What nobility is this? First, adultery came into being, afterward murder. And he was begotten in adultery, for he was the child of the Serpent. So he became a murderer, just like his father, and he killed his brother. Indeed, every act of sexual intercourse which has occurred between those unlike one another is adultery (Watchers seed mixed with mankind).

-----Continually, we see the story of Enoch unfold within the other seeds of truth we find scattered about the landscape.

God is a dyer (Notice something is mixed, only to then separate by time and the stopping of movement). As the good dyes, which are called "true", dissolve with the things dyed in them, so it is with those whom God has dyed (God mixes with inferior to allow the gross to become subtle (Alchemy)). Since his dyes are immortal, they become immortal by means of his colors (Unity to Multiplicity). Now God dips what he dips in water (Cleanses the temple).

It is not possible for anyone to see anything of the things that actually exist unless he becomes like them (Immersed into the Earth, Air, Water and Fire for the purpose of gaining Spirit). This is not the way with man in the world: he sees the sun without being a sun (Giver of what is given); and he sees the heaven and the earth and all other things, but he is not these things (He thinks and moves only). This is quite in keeping with the truth. But you saw something of that place, and you became those things (Seeing the Word makes you the context of truth from what is understood). You saw the Spirit, you became spirit. You saw Christ, you became Christ. You saw the Father, you shall become Father. So in this place you see everything and do not see yourself (You are an image), but in that place you do see yourself - and what you see you shall become (What you do here becomes the Robe (Body) and Crown (Mind) you receive later).

----------(You bind and loose here to make your next existence)

Faith receives, love gives (Faith most produce). No one will be able to receive without faith. No one will be able to give without love (Otherwise, it's done in pride for self). Because of this, in order that we may indeed receive, we believe, and in order that we may love, we give, since if one gives without love, he has no profit from what he has given. He who has received something other than the Lord is still a Hebrew (Kinsman in the water).

----------This one verse set explains the purpose of life in the water.

The apostles who were before us had these names for him: "Jesus, the Nazorean, Messiah", that is, "Jesus, the Nazorean, the Christ". The last name is "Christ", the first is "Jesus", that in the middle is "the Nazarene". "Messiah" has two meanings, both "the Christ" and "the measured". "Jesus" in Hebrew is "the redemption". "Nazara" is "the Truth". "The Nazarene" then, is "the Truth". "Christ" [...] has been measured. "The Nazarene" and "Jesus" are they who have been measured (We are measured for our place in heaven against the standard of Christ).

When the pearl is cast down into the mud, it becomes greatly despised, nor if it is anointed with balsam oil will it become more precious. But it always has value in the eyes of its owner. Compare the Sons of God: wherever they may be, they still have value in the eyes of their Father.

The Pearl are the Sons of God that are rising with THE Son. The Mud is the material world and the body. Oil cannot anoint the son in the mud. The Father loves us all. We can willingly disconnect and follow the Father of sin and death and sink further into the mud. It's a choice. Eventually, the entire thing is judged and creation is renewed.

If you say, "I am a Jew," no one will be moved. If you say, "I am a Roman," no one will be disturbed. If you say, "I am a Greek, a barbarian, a slave, a free man," no one will be troubled. If you say, "I am a Christian," the [...] will tremble. Would that I might [...] like that - the person whose name [...] will not be able to endure hearing.

-----Saints have the job of judging the wicked in the 1000 reign of Christ. We have unlimited power because we fear (reverence for God and His will). Those who have no fear (For God) have no power.

God is a man-eater (Not literally. Eats the by destroying pride). For this reason, men are sacrificed to him. Before men were sacrificed, animals were being sacrificed, since those to whom they were sacrificed were not gods (The Temple sacrifice is a symbol of the beast and demon of man being replaced with Holy Spirit from the fire of trials. Water puts out fire).

Glass decanters and earthenware jugs are both made by means of fire. But if glass decanters break, they are done over, for they came into being through a breath. If earthenware jugs break, however, they are destroyed, for they came into being without breath. (I did an Entire Thread on this)

An ass which turns a millstone did a hundred miles walking. When it was loosed, it found that it was still at the same place (We are not in the image). There are men who make many journeys, but make no progress towards any destination (Back to the place we came and out of the image). When evening came upon them (Death), they saw neither city nor village, neither human artifact nor natural phenomenon, power nor angel. In vain have the wretches labored (Repentance is the labor of love that leads us home from the waters of baptism).

The eucharist (Sacrament of the Altar) is Jesus. For he is called in Syriac "Pharisatha," which is "the one who is spread out," for Jesus came to crucify the world (He is the World and everything in it).

The Lord went into the dye works of Levi (Priest mixing baptisms). He took seventy-two different colors and threw them into the vat (Letters of the WORD). He took them out all white (Cleansed from Error). And he said, "Even so has the Son of Man come as a dyer."

------Read how we are mixed in multiplicity in the waters of Amnion. The lamb's wool is over the eyes. The wool is sheered. It is then washed white as snow and returned as the Robe. Our sin is the wool we wear.

As for the Wisdom who is called "the barren," (SOPHIA) she is the mother of the angels (SERVANTS the Fell). And the companion of the [...] Mary Magdalene. [...] loved her more than all the disciples, and used to kiss her often on her mouth. The rest of the disciples [...]. They said to him "Why do you love her more than all of us?" The Savior answered and said to them,"Why do I not love you like her? When a blind man and one who sees are both together in darkness, they are no different from one another. When the light comes, then he who sees will see the light, and he who is blind will remain in darkness."

------There is much to be said on this one, but is not necessary.

The Lord said, "Blessed is he who is before he came into being. For he who is, has been and shall be."

------God is unchanging. The Son was perfected before coming into the world to save mankind.

The superiority of man is not obvious to the eye (Not Eyes), but lies in what is hidden from view (Open to the eye of the mind over time). Consequently, he has mastery over the animals which are stronger than he is and great in terms of the obvious and the hidden (The one who fears God has all the power over the beasts of the field (Fallen)). This enables them to survive (By strength of mind). But if man is separated from them, they slay one another and bite one another. They ate one another because they did not find any food. But now they have found food (Knowledge) because man tilled the soil (Toiled for the tree of knowledge and Life).

If one goes down into the water and comes up without having received anything (Baptism is immersion into Reality), and says "I am a Christian," he has borrowed the name at interest (He must bear fruit by taking the name and Character of Christ. Taking the name without the character is in vain). But if he receives the Holy Spirit, he has the name as a gift (Character after rebirth). He who has received a gift does not have to give it back, but of him who has borrowed it at interest, payment is demanded (We must be born again). This is the way it happens to one when he experiences a mystery (Baptism is the greatest of all mysteries that I have seen. It answers most paradoxes if see correctly.).

Great is the mystery of marriage! For without it, the world would not exist. Now the existence of the world [...], and the existence of [...] marriage. Think of the [...] relationship, for it possesses [...] power. Its image consists of a defilement.

-----------Union of two becoming one. Right and left brain and Soul and Spirit. Sperm and egg. Man and woman. All of these unions, starting with Sun and Moon, create new life. The way to be baptized in the Spirit is union of Soul and Spirit. We must love God, just as the man must love the woman for true union. All of nature speaks the symbolism of giving and love to create truth and peace.

The forms of evil spirit include male ones and female ones. The males are they which unite with the souls which inhabit a female form, but the females are they which are mingled with those in a male form, though one who was disobedient. And none shall be able to escape them, since they detain him if he does not receive a male power or a female power, the bridegroom and the bride.

-------Compare this to the left brain and the right brain. Opposites must be united. Impenetrability is a state of being whereby two things cannot occupy the same space. I cannot tell you how this works. It must be experienced to be understood. What you do not master masters you.

One receives them from the mirrored bridal chamber (Mind). When the wanton women see a male sitting alone, they leap down on him and play with him and defile him (Emotions and Intellect). So also the lecherous men, when they see a beautiful woman sitting alone, they persuade her and compel her, wishing to defile her. But if they see the man and his wife sitting beside one another, the female cannot come into the man, nor can the male come into the woman. So if the image and the angel are united with one another, neither can any venture to go into the man or the woman.

He who comes out of the world, and so can no longer be detained on the grounds that he was in the world, evidently is above the desire of the [...] and fear. He is master over [...]. He is superior to envy. If [...] comes, they seize him and throttle him. And how will this one be able to escape the great [...] powers? How will he be able to [...]? There are some who say, "We are faithful" in order that [...] the unclean spirits and the demons. For if they had the Holy Spirit, no unclean spirit would cleave to them. Fear not the flesh nor love it. If you fear it, it will gain mastery over you. If you love it, it will swallow and paralyze you.

-----Fear is mistrust. Faith is trust.

And so he dwells either in this world (Water) or in the resurrection (Risen to new life) or in the middle place (Mean/between water and Spirit). God forbid that I be found in there! In this world, there is good and evil. Its good things are not good, and its evil things not evil. But there is evil after this world which is truly evil - what is called "the middle" (Compromise). It is death. While we are in this world, it is fitting for us to acquire the resurrection, so that when we strip off the flesh, we may be found in rest and not walk in the middle (resurrection brings the final trial and the a rest (Isaiah 26)). For many go astray on the way. For it is good to come forth from the world before one has sinned.

There are some who neither will nor have the power to; and others who, if they will, do not profit; for they did not act since [...] makes them sinners. And if they do not will, justice will elude them in both cases: and it is always a matter of the will, not the act.

----The heart is the primary reflector of light.

An apostolic man in a vision saw some people shut up in a house of fire and bound with fiery [...], lying [...] flaming [...], them in [...] faith [...]. And he said to them, "[...] able to be saved?" [...], "They did not desire it. They received [...] punishment, what is called 'the [...] darkness', because he [...]."

------Fragmented.

It is from water (Baptism) and fire (Trials) that the soul and the spirit came into being (Union from Love for God). It is from water (Baptism) and fire (Trials) and light (Instruction) that the son of the bridal chamber (came into being). The fire is the chrism (Anointing), the light is the fire (Experience - Hearing, Seeing, Doing). I am not referring to that fire which has no form, but to the other fire whose form is white, which is bright and beautiful, and which gives beauty.

Truth did not come into the world naked (Without a body), but it came in types and images (With bodies in nature as parables). The world will not receive truth in any other way (Symbols occupy less space than the information they express). There is a rebirth (in the world to come) and an image of rebirth (In the womb of a mother). It is certainly necessary to be born again through the image (From water baptism to Spirit). Which one? Resurrection (Being born again into trials and tribulation). The image must rise again through the image (You are not the image here, but what casts the image). The bridal chamber (Union with God) and the image (Water) must enter through the image into the truth (Holy Spirit and correct context to the Word): this is the restoration (Being made holy). Not only must those who produce the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, do so, but have produced them for you (Particle / Wave / Consciousness). If one does not acquire them, the name ("Christian") will also be taken from him. But one receives the unction of the [...] of the power of the cross. This power the apostles called "the right and the left." For this person is no longer a Christian but a Christ (Two become one).

The Lord did everything in a mystery (Hidden in symbol), a baptism (Water immersion) and a chrism (Anointing) and a eucharist (Sacrament of the Altar)(and a redemption and a bridal chamber. [...] he said, "I came to make the things below like the things above (UNION and UNITY), and the things outside like those inside (Union of opposites to Unity). I came to unite them in the place." [...] here through types [...]and images.

Those who say, "There is a heavenly man and there is one above him" are wrong. For it is the first of these two heavenly men, the one who is revealed, that they call "the one who is below"; and he to whom the hidden belongs is that one who is above him (Macrocosm and Microcosm). For it would be better for them to say, "The inner and outer, and what is outside the outer" (Like a programmer outside the program). Because of this, the Lord called destruction the "the outer darkness": there is not another outside of it. He said, "My Father who is in secret". He said, "Go into your chamber and shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father who is in secret" (Mt 6:6), the one who is within them all (back to the idea of the void opened within and the involution into the void). But that which is within them all is the fullness. Beyond it, there is nothing else within it. This is that of which they say, "That which is above them" (The fullness of the entire body by dimension above and below).

Before Christ, some came from a place they were no longer able to enter (Fallen beings), and they went where they were no longer able to come out (Material World). Then Christ came. Those who went in, he brought out, and those who went out, he brought in.

When Eve was still with Adam, death did not exist. When she was separated from him, death came into being. If he enters again and attains his former self, death will be no more (Christ is the last Adam).

"My God, my God, why, O Lord, have you forsaken me?" (Mk 15:34). It was on the cross that he said these words, for he had departed from that place.

[...] who has been begotten through him who [...] from God.

The [...] from the dead. [...] to be, but now [...] perfect. [...] flesh, but this [...] is true flesh. [...] is not true, but [...] only possess an image of the true.

A bridal chamber is not for the animals (those who have not overcome the beast), nor is it for the slaves (Those working as bond servants), nor for defiled women (Harlots mixing truth with the world); but it is for free men and virgins (Those who have fully emptied from the world).

Through the Holy Spirit we are indeed begotten again (Given what we could not give ourselves), but we are begotten through Christ (He brings us through the wilderness) in the two (Water and Spirit). We are anointed through the Spirit (Sealed and cleansed). When we were begotten (Born again in the resurrection), we were united (Brought together with Christ). None can see himself (Individual) either in water (Baptism and material world) or in a mirror (Image created for baptism) without light (knowledge of the process). Nor again can you see in light without mirror or water (You must be born again into the image). For this reason, it is fitting to baptize (Involve) in the two (Water and Spirit), in the light and the water. Now the light is the chrism (Anointing oil for the lamp You light the fire you burn by).

There were three buildings specifically for sacrifice in Jerusalem. The one facing the west was called "The Holy". Another, facing south, was called "The Holy of the Holy". The third, facing east, was called "The Holy of the Holies", the place where only the high priest enters. Baptism is "the Holy" building (First stage of involution and Father). Redemption is the "Holy of the Holy" (Son). "The Holy of the Holies" is the bridal chamber (Consummation of Spirit and Soul). Baptism includes the resurrection and the redemption; the redemption (takes place) in the bridal chamber (consummation is private and not open to the public or it is harlotry). But the bridal chamber is in that which is superior to [...] you will not find [...] are those who pray [...] Jerusalem who [...] Jerusalem, [...] those called the "Holy of the Holies" [...] the veil was rent, [...] bridal chamber except the image [...] above. Because of this, its veil was rent from top to bottom. For it was fitting for some from below to go upward.

The powers do not see those who are clothed in the perfect light (Believers are hidden in the Spirit), and consequently are not able to detain them. One will clothe himself in this light sacramentally in the union (Between soul and Spirit).

If the woman had not separated from the man, she should not die with the man. His separation became the beginning of death (Being left in the wilderness). Because of this, Christ came to repair the separation, which was from the beginning, and again unite the two (Soul and Spirit), and to give life to those who died as a result of the separation, and unite them. But the woman is united to her husband in the bridal chamber (In secret). Indeed, those who have united in the bridal chamber will no longer be separated (Faith making duality one). Thus Eve separated from Adam because it was not in the bridal chamber that she united with him.

The soul of Adam came into being by means of a breath (Animation to change, like a glass blower). The partner of his soul is the spirit. His mother is the thing that was given to him. His soul was taken from him and replaced by a spirit. When he was united (to the spirit), he spoke words incomprehensible to the powers. They envied him [...] spiritual partner [...] hidden [...] opportunity [...] for themselves alone [...] bridal chamber, so that [...].

Jesus appeared [...] Jordan - the fullness of the Kingdom of Heaven. He who was begotten before everything, was begotten anew. He who was once anointed, was anointed anew. He who was redeemed, in turn redeemed (others).

Indeed, one must utter a mystery. The Father of everything united with the virgin who came down, and a fire (Trial) shone for him on that day. He appeared in the great bridal chamber. Therefore his body came into being on that very day. It left the bridal chamber as one who came into being from the bridegroom and the bride. So Jesus established everything in it through these. It is fitting for each of the disciples to enter into his rest.

Isaiah 26 (Compare to this verse regarding Baptism, being born again and the chamber of rest)

19 But your dead will live, Lord;
their bodies will rise—
let those who dwell in the dust
wake up and shout for joy—
your dew is like the dew of the morning;
the earth will give birth to her dead.
20 Go, my people, enter your rooms
and shut the doors behind you;
hide yourselves for a little while
until his wrath has passed by.
21 See, the Lord is coming out of his dwelling
to punish the people of the earth for their sins.
The earth will disclose the blood shed on it;
the earth will conceal its slain no longer.

Adam came into being from two virgins, from the Spirit and from the virgin earth. Christ therefore, was born from a virgin to rectify the Fall which occurred in the beginning (Making Him the last Adam).

There are two trees growing in Paradise. The one bears animals (Tree of knowledge), the other bears men (Tree of life). Adam ate from the tree which bore animals. He became an animal and he brought forth animals. For this reason the children of Adam worship animals. The tree [...] fruit is [...] increased. [...] ate the [...] fruit of the [...] bears men, [...] man. [...] God created man. [...] men create God. That is the way it is in the world - men make gods and worship their creation. It would be fitting for the gods to worship men!

-----The various trees represent Word and DNA. One is divine and the other is for animals that must develop.

Surely what a man accomplishes depends on his abilities (Gifts developed by trials and experience). For this reason, we refer to one`s accomplishments as "abilities". Among his accomplishments are his children (What he raises will then raise him). They originate in a moment of ease. Thus his abilities determine what he may accomplish, but this ease is clearly evident in the children. You will find that this applies directly to the image (Starts at rest then moves through trials). Here is the man made after the image accomplishing things with his physical strength, but producing his children with ease.

In this world, the slaves serve the free. In the Kingdom of Heaven, the free (Those who give) will minister to the slaves (Those who took): the children of the bridal chamber will minister to the children of the marriage. The children of the bridal chamber have just one name: rest. Altogether, they need take no other form, because they have contemplation, [...]. They are numerous [...] in the things [...] the glories [...].

Those [...] go down into the water. [...] out (of the water), will consecrate it, [...] they who have [...] in his name. For he said, "Thus we should fulfill all righteousness." (Mt 3:15)

Those who say they will die first and then rise are in error. If they do not first receive the resurrection while they live, when they die they will receive nothing (Baptism must be accompanied by repentance). So also when speaking about baptism they say, "Baptism is a great thing," because if people receive it they will live (Rising requires bearing fruit. Living is not rising).

Philip the apostle said, "Joseph the carpenter planted a garden because he needed wood for his trade. It was he who made the cross from the trees which he planted. His own offspring hung on that which he planted. His offspring was Jesus, and the planting was the cross." But the Tree of Life is in the middle of the Garden. However, it is from the olive tree that we got the chrism (For anointing to new life), and from the chrism, the resurrection (Being born again).

----The Son raises the father and repeats. If you are born again, then your offspring raise the Father who is born again. The mother is the servant and receives salvation from the process. 1 Timothy 2 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 15 But women[c] will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.

This world is a corpse-eater (We are all walking corpses and we are all dead until made alive to never die as Spirit). All the things eaten in it themselves die also (The soul lives on). Truth is a life-eater (It refines by the process of alchemy. Dissolution must happen). Therefore no one nourished by truth will die (Truth is the Living Water of the Word that enlivens the Soul). It was from that place that Jesus came and brought food. To those who so desired, he gave life, that they might not die (Free gift).

-------John 6 64 For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him. 65 He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them.”

God [...] garden. Man [...] garden. There are [...] and [...] of God. [...] The things which are in [...] I wish. This garden is the place where they will say to me, "[...] eat this or do not eat that, just as you wish." In the place where I will eat all things is the Tree of Knowledge. That one killed Adam (Made a beast to overcome), but here the Tree of Knowledge made men alive (Evolution from Involution). The law was the tree (Guardian of the Soul - Galatians 3). It has power to give the knowledge of good and evil (Break the law and it breaks you). It neither removed him from evil, nor did it set him in the good, but it created death for those who ate of it (Involution willingly). For when he said, "Eat this, do not eat that", it became the beginning of death.

The chrism (Anointing of resurrection) is superior to baptism (Being born again), for it is from the word "Chrism" that we have been called "Christians," certainly not because of the word "baptism" (Water and wheel of the ox cart). And it is because of the chrism that "the Christ" has his name. For the Father anointed the Son, and the Son anointed the apostles, and the apostles anointed us. He who has been anointed possesses everything (overcomes by faith as a gift. Faith is God's work in us). He possesses the resurrection (the 2nd death has no power over him), the light, the cross, the Holy Spirit. The Father gave him this in the bridal chamber (Place of rest away from the material world (Hebrews 9)); he merely accepted (the FREE gift). The Father was in the Son and the Son in the Father. This is the Kingdom of Heaven (Giving and receiving - No thief involved).

The Lord said it well: "Some have entered the Kingdom of Heaven laughing (Not able to contain joy and astonishment), and they have come out [...] because [...] a Christian, [...]. And as soon as [...] went down into the water, he came [...] everything (of this world), [...] because he [...] a trifle, but [...] full of contempt for this [...] the Kingdom of Heaven [...] If he despises [...], and scorns it as a trifle, [...] out laughing. So it is also with the bread and the cup and the oil, even though there is another one superior to these.

The world came about through a mistake (Unknown - See end of Job 19). For he who created it wanted to create it imperishable and immortal. He fell short of attaining his desire (By design of the Father). For the world never was imperishable, nor, for that matter, was he who made the world (Son was being raised). For things are not imperishable, but sons are (God is raising HIS Son). Nothing will be able to receive imperishability if it does not first become a son (Involved into multiplicity of forms for learning). But he who has not the ability to receive, how much more will he be unable to give (All gifts must be earned to be given)?

The cup of prayer contains wine (abundance) and water (filling the void), since it is appointed as the type of the blood for which thanks is given (What is developed). And it is full of the Holy Spirit (Void filled), and it belongs to the wholly perfect man (Completed evolution to potential). When we drink this, we shall receive for ourselves the perfect man (Humpty Dumpty put back to his glory again). The living water is a body (Temple). It is necessary that we put on the living man (Cleansed by water). Therefore, when he is about to go down into the water, he unclothes himself, in order that he may put on the living man (Body to Spirit - The new robe is produced by the sin).

A horse sires a horse, a man begets man, a god brings forth a god (Son of God). Compare the bridegroom and the bride (Christ bringing us up). They have come from the [...]. No Jew [...] has existed. And [...] from the Jews. [...] Christians [...] these [...] are referred to as "The chosen people of [...]," and "The true man" and "Son of Man" and "the seed of the Son of Man". This true race is renowned in the world [...] that the sons of the bridal chamber dwell (Those waiting the 1000 years of peace).

Whereas in this world the union is one of husband with wife - a case of strength complemented by weakness(?) - in the Aeon (eternal realm), the form of the union is different, although we refer to them by the same names (Soul and Spirit). There are other names, however; they are superior to every other name that is named and are stronger than the strong. For where there is a show of strength, there those who excel in strength appear. These are not separate things, but both of them are this one single thing. This is the one which will not be able to rise above the heart of flesh (Must be through weakness and humility).

Is it not necessary for all those who possess everything to know themselves (Awareness of self in relation to others - Golden rule)? Some indeed, if they do not know themselves, will not enjoy what they possess. But those who have come to know themselves will enjoy their possessions (Family and fruit of life).

Not only will they be unable to detain the perfect man, but they will not be able to see him, for if they see him, they will detain him (We are redeemed from sin and death and therefore, no power holds us back to death). There is no other way for a person to acquire this quality except by putting on the perfect light and he too becoming perfect light (Clothed with Christ). He who has put it on will enter [...]. This is the perfect [...] that we [...] become [...] before we leave [...]. Whoever receives everything [...] hither [...] be able [...] that place, but will [...] the Middle as imperfect. Only Jesus knows the end of this person.

--------John 2 23 Now while he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Festival, many people saw the signs he was performing and believed in his name.[d] 24 But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all people. 25 He did not need any testimony about mankind, for he knew what was in each person.

The priest is completely holy (Jesus High Priest - Hebrews 9), down to his very body (His Church and body of believers). For if he has taken the bread (Cut from the loaf), he will consecrate it (Bring it back to unity). Or the cup or anything else that he gets, he will consecrate (We bear the cup). Then how will he not consecrate the body also? (Church).

By perfecting the water of baptism, Jesus emptied it of death (No longer necessary). Thus we do go down into the water (reborn into the material), but we do not go down into death (Because we are assisting others to rise), in order that we may not be poured out into the spirit of the world (Caught again by the desire of life and sin). When that spirit blows, it brings the winter (WORLD). When the Holy Spirit breathes, the summer comes (World to Come!).

He who has knowledge of the truth is a free man (Love removes the need for the law), but the free man does not sin (Can, yet does not desire it), for "He who sins is the slave of sin" (Jn 8:34). Truth is the mother, knowledge the father (The two keeping the child safe and in remembrance of truth and love for others). Those who think that sinning does not apply to them are called "free" by the world. Knowledge of the truth merely makes such people arrogant, which is what the words, "it makes them free" mean. It even gives them a sense of superiority over the whole world. But "Love builds up" (1 Co 8:1). In fact, he who is really free, through knowledge, is a slave (To truth), because of love for those who have not yet been able to attain to the freedom of knowledge (We assist the rest of creation to attain truth). Knowledge makes them capable of becoming free (The Word of God). Love never calls something its own (But sets it free), [...] it [...] possess [...]. It never says,"This is yours" or "This is mine," but "All these are yours" (Give and receive but never take). Spiritual love is wine (abundance) and fragrance (Peace and satisfaction of the two pillars / PTAH HOTEP). All those who anoint themselves with it take pleasure in it (Tree of Life). While those who are anointed are present, those nearby also profit (from the fragrance).

-------Compare to the one who works a job and gives the abundance to the family for improved life. All gifts must first be earned by suffering. Love is suffering for what is given.

If those anointed with ointment withdraw from them and leave (Widowed land), then those not anointed, who merely stand nearby, still remain in their bad odor. The Samaritan gave nothing but wine and oil to the wounded man. It is nothing other than the ointment. It healed the wounds, for "love covers a multitude of sins" (1 P 4:8).

-------Our work here in the water allows us to purchase the redemption of others by helping them come to repentance in the water. We light the fire we burn by or we use that fire to light the path of others.

The children a woman bears resemble the man who loves her (Spirit is the fruit we are known by). If her husband loves her, then they resemble her husband. If it is an adulterer, then they resemble the adulterer. Frequently, if a woman sleeps with her husband out of necessity, while her heart is with the adulterer with whim she usually has intercourse, the child she will bear is born resembling the adulterer. Now you who live together with the Son of God, love not the world, but love the Lord, in order that those you will bring forth may not resemble the world, but may resemble the Lord.

---------Taking the name in vain is taking the name and not the character of the Spirit.

The human being has intercourse with the human being. The horse has intercourse with the horse, the ass with the ass. Members of a race usually have associated with those of like race. So spirit mingles with spirit, and thought consorts with thought, and light shares with light. If you are born a human being, it is the human being who will love you. If you become a spirit, it is the spirit which will be joined to you. If you become thought, it is thought which will mingle with you. If you become light, it is the light which will share with you. If you become one of those who belong above, it is those who belong above who will rest upon you. If you become horse or ass or bull or dog or sheep, or another of the animals which are outside or below, then neither human being nor spirit nor thought nor light will be able to love you. Neither those who belong above nor those who belong within will be able to rest in you, and you have no part in them.

---------Compare yourself to your heart and the animal it resembles. If you rise above the animal, you love the Spirit and come into the light.

He who is a slave against his will, will be able to become free (By seeking freedom in service). He who has become free by favor of his master (Sin and Death), and has sold himself into slavery (Bonded to sin and death), will no longer be able to be free. (A kinsman must redeem)

Farming (Jacob loved by God) in the world requires the cooperation of four essential elements. A harvest is gathered into the barn only as a result of the natural action of water, earth, wind and light (Baptisms of lower realms). God's farming likewise has four elements - faith, hope, love, and knowledge. Faith (Belief) is our earth, that in which we take root. And hope is the water (Baptism) through which we are nourished. Love is the wind (Spirit) through which we grow. Knowledge, then, is the light through which we ripen (or we are refined by). Grace exists in four ways: it is earthborn; it is heavenly; [...] the highest heaven; [...] in [...].

Blessed is the one who on no occasion caused a soul [...]. That person is Jesus Christ. He came to the whole place and did not burden anyone (Never took anything for himself). Therefore, blessed is the one who is like this (Not taking anything), because he is a perfect man (Not a thief). For the Word tells us that this kind is difficult to define. How shall we be able to accomplish such a great thing? How will he give everyone comfort? Above all, it is not proper to cause anyone distress (Become an unbalance force)- whether the person is great or small, unbeliever or believer - and then give comfort only to those who take satisfaction in good deeds. Some find it advantageous to give comfort to the one who has fared well. He who does good deeds cannot give comfort to such people, for he does not seize whatever he likes. He is unable to cause distress, however, since he does not afflict them. To be sure, the one who fares well sometimes causes people distress (Moves them from balance by unbalance) - not that he intends to do so; rather, it is their own wickedness which is responsible for their distress (Truth is a mirror). He who possesses the qualities (of the perfect man) bestows joy upon the good. Some, however, are terribly distressed by all this (Truth is a mirror we see our own untruth by).

There was a householder who had every conceivable thing, be it son or slave or cattle or dog or pig or corn or barley or chaff or grass or [...] or meat and acorn. Now he was a sensible fellow, and he knew what the food of each one was. He served the children bread [...]. He served the slaves [...] and meal. And he threw barley and chaff and grass to the cattle. He threw bones to the dogs, and to the pigs he threw acorns and slop. Compare the disciple of God: if he is a sensible fellow, he understands what discipleship is all about (assisting need in knowledge of each person's ability). The bodily forms will not deceive him, but he will look at the condition of the soul of each one and speak with him (Speak by the knowledge he can contain. The teacher must know the student's capacity). There are many animals in the world which are in a human form (Beasts of untruth and young of souls age). When he identifies them, to the swine he will throw acorns, to the cattle he will throw barley and chaff and grass, to the dogs he will throw bones. To the slaves he will give only the elementary lessons, to the children he will give the complete instruction.

There is the Son of Man (LORD - Father - Son of God - First Adam) and there is the son of the Son of Man (Men born of Spirit). The Lord is the Son of Man, and the son of the Son of Man is he who creates through the Son of Man (Fathers of families). The Son of Man received from God the capacity to create. He also has the ability to beget. He who has received the ability to create is a creature. He who has received the ability to beget is an offspring. He who creates cannot beget. He who begets also has power to create. Now they say, "He who creates begets" (Mind is the builder). But his so-called "offspring" is merely a creature. Because of [...] of birth, they are not his offspring but [...]. He who creates works openly, and he himself is visible. He who begets, begets in private, and he himself is hidden, since [...] image. Also, he who creates, creates openly. But one who begets, begets children in private.

No one can know when the husband and the wife have intercourse with one another, except the two of them. Indeed, marriage in the world is a mystery for those who have taken a wife. If there is a hidden quality to the marriage of defilement, how much more is the undefiled marriage a true mystery (Spirit and Soul)! It is not fleshly, but pure. It belongs not to desire, but to the will (Belief and Faith from Love for God). It belongs not to the darkness or the night, but to the day and the light (Openly confessed). If a marriage is open to the public, it has become prostitution, and the bride plays the harlot not only when she is impregnated by another man, but even if she slips out of her bedroom and is seen. Let her show herself only to her father and her mother, and to the friend of the bridegroom and the sons of the bridegroom. These are permitted to enter every day into the bridal chamber. But let the others yearn just to listen to her voice and to enjoy her ointment, and let them feed from the crumbs that fall from the table, like the dogs. Bridegrooms and brides belong to the bridal chamber. No one shall be able to see the bridegroom with the bride unless he become such a one.

------Unbelievers cannot know this truth until they seek this truth. It is foreign to anyone who has not experienced it.

When Abraham [...] that he was to see what he was to see, he circumcised the flesh of the foreskin, teaching us that it is proper to destroy the flesh.

------Circumcision is like baptism, just a symbol for what it represents. Sin must be cut away one sin at a time. What we do not master masters us.

Most things in the world, as long as their inner parts are hidden, stand upright and live. If they are revealed, they die, as is illustrated by the visible man: as long as the intestines of the man are hidden, the man is alive; when his intestines are exposed and come out of him, the man will die. So also with the tree: while its root is hidden, it sprouts and grows. If its root is exposed, the tree dries up. So it is with every birth that is in the world, not only with the revealed but with the hidden. For so long as the root of wickedness is hidden, it is strong. But when it is recognized, it is dissolved. When it is revealed, it perishes.

-----Light exposes what it hits. When light hits a plant, the plant develops and dies. Light reveals sin and sin grows and dies. It's a process.

That is why the Word says, "Already the axe is laid at the root of the trees" (Mt 3:10). It will not merely cut - what is cut sprouts again - but the ax penetrates deeply, until it brings up the root. Jesus pulled out the root of the whole place, while others did it only partially. As for ourselves, let each one of us dig down after the root of evil which is within one, and let one pluck it out of one's heart from the root.

------Find your sin and expose it to the light. It will bear fruit of growth and die. Move on to the next root. In its place, plant seeds of truth and watch them grow from the water and light.

It will be plucked out if we recognize it. But if we are ignorant of it, it takes root in us and produces its fruit in our heart. It masters us. We are its slaves. It takes us captive, to make us do what we do not want; and what we do want, we do not do. It is powerful because we have not recognized it. While it exists it is active. Ignorance is the mother of all evil. Ignorance will result in death, because those who come from ignorance neither were nor are nor shall be. [...] will be perfect when all the truth is revealed.

-------Deny ignorance and see truth by the light. To deny ignorance, stop ignoring sin. Find the root and cut it out.

For truth is like ignorance: while it is hidden, it rests in itself, but when it is revealed and is recognized, it is praised, inasmuch as it is stronger than ignorance and error. It gives freedom. The Word said, "If you know the truth, the truth will make you free" (Jn 8:32). Ignorance is a slave. Knowledge is freedom. If we know the truth, we shall find the fruits of the truth within us. If we are joined to it, it will bring our fulfillment.

At the present time, we have the manifest things of creation. We say, "The strong who are held in high regard are great people. And the weak who are despised are the obscure." Contrast the manifest things of truth: they are weak and despised, while the hidden things are strong and held in high regard. The mysteries of truth are revealed, though in type and image. The bridal chamber, however, remains hidden.

------Finally, the answer to the chamber. What does a bride want as she waits for her husband? She wants to fill the void left from the absence. God opened a space inside himself to fill with us. Until that void is filled and the bride and groom are one, creation is not satisfied. The same void exists in us. Open it wide and let God fill it. This is the purpose of the void and the meaning of the chamber.

It is the Holy in the Holy. The veil at first concealed how God controlled the creation (Matter is the veil), but when the veil is rent and the things inside are revealed, this house will be left desolate (Empty void), or rather will be destroyed (fulfilled its purpose). And the whole (inferior) godhead will flee from here, but not into the holies of the holies, for it will not be able to mix with the unmixed light and the flawless fullness, but will be under the wings of the cross and under its arms (The true meaning of the ark that carries the forms to image by word). This ark will be their salvation when the flood of water surges over them. If some belong to the order of the priesthood, they will be able to go within the veil with the high priest. For this reason, the veil was not rent at the top only, since it would have been open only to those above; nor was it rent at the bottom only, since it would have been revealed only to those below. But it was rent from the top to bottom. Those above opened to us the things below, in order that we may go in to the secret of the truth. This truly is what is held in high regard, (and) what is strong! But we shall go in there by means of lowly types and forms of weakness (like an acorn or seed). They are lowly indeed when compared with the perfect glory (Unfolded seed). There is glory which surpasses glory. There is power which surpasses power. Therefore, the perfect things have opened to us, together with the hidden things of truth. The holies of the holies were revealed, and the bridal chamber invited us in (Place to hold what we store as fruit. Our new seed developed by repentance).

----------If you wish to fill the void and understand this last paragraph, understand what came before and apply what is learned. I won't explain the last part as it is the key. That's up to you to discover.

As long as it is hidden, wickedness is indeed ineffectual, but it has not been removed from the midst of the seed of the Holy Spirit (Free will has potential for evil). They are slaves of evil (Not overcoming the error). But when it is revealed, then the perfect light will flow out on every one (We will overcome by love for God). And all those who are in it will receive the chrism (Anointing). Then the slaves will be free and the captives ransomed. "Every plant which my father who is in heaven has not planted will be plucked out." (Mt 15:13) Those who are separated will unite [...] and will be filled (The void will be healed). Every one who will enter the bridal chamber will kindle the light, for [...] just as in the marriages which are [...] happen at night. That fire [...] only at night, and is put out. But the mysteries of that marriage are perfected rather in the day and the light. Neither that day nor its light ever sets. If anyone becomes a son of the bridal chamber, he will receive the light (If not, then no oil is in the lamp). If anyone does not receive it while he is here, he will not be able to receive it in the other place (Because the lamp will remain dark). He who will receive that light will not be seen, nor can he be detained. And none shall be able to torment a person like this, even while he dwells in the world (The one with the oil will be the one that lights the fire). And again when he leaves the world, he has already received the truth in the images (Gained knowledge from what is evident in nature). The world has become the Aeon (eternal realm), for the Aeon is fullness for him. This is the way it is: it is revealed to him alone, not hidden in the darkness and the night, but hidden in a perfect day and a holy light.

The truth is out in the open. What you do with it is your choice.

The End of the longest OP ever.
