I Never Knew You

March 27, 2013

What is the Lord saying when he says: I never knew you.

Beware of false prophets–which come to you in sheep’s clothing–but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. From the Gospel some attribute to Matthew, in chapter 7, beginning with verse 15

You shall know them by their fruits–Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 16

Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit–but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. 17

A GOOD TREE CANNOT BRING FORTH EVIL FRUIT–NEITHER CAN A CORRUPT TREE BRING FORTH GOOD FRUIT. 18

Every tree that does brings not forth good fruit is hewn down–and cast into the fire. 19

Why by their fruits you shall know them. 20

NOT EVERY ONE THAT SAID TO ME, LORD, LORD –SHALL ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN–BUT HE THAT DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN. 21

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have we not cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works? 22

And then I will profess to them–I NEVER KNEW YOU: DEPART FROM ME, YOU THAT WORK INIQUITY. 23
DEPART FROM ME– ALL YOU WORKERS OF INIQUITY– FOR THE LORD HAS HEARD THE VOICE OF MY WEEPING. Psalm 6.8

DEPART FROM ME, YOU EVIL DOERS–FOR I KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF MY GOD. Psalm 119.115

When once the master OF THE HOUSE is risen up– and has SHUT THE DOOR– and you begin to STAND WITHOUT– and KNOCK AT THAT DOOR– saying, Lord, Lord; open to us; and he shall answer and say to you–I KNOW YOU NOT FROM WHERE YOU ARE: Luke 13.25
and
But he shall say, I TELL YOU, I KNOW NOT FROM WHERE YOU ARE– DEPART FROM ME, ALL YOU WORKERS OF INIQUITY. Luke 13.27
 *iniquity: from Latin iniquitas, from iniquus, from in- ‘not’ + aequus ‘equal,  just’

In The Gospel of Thomas: 50 (1) Jesus said, ” If they say to you, ‘Where are you from?’ say to them, ‘We have come from the light, from the place where light came into being by itself, established [itself], and appeared in their image.’ (2) If they say to you, ‘is it you?’ say, ‘We are its children, and we are the chosen of the living Father.” (3) If they ask you, ‘what is the evidence of your Father in you?’ say to them, ‘It is motion and rest.’
51 (1) His disciples said to him, “when will the rest for the dead take place, and when will the new world come?”
(2) He said to them, “what you look for has come, but you do not know it.”
52 (1) His disciples said to him, “Twenty-four prophets have spoken in Israel, and they all spoke of you.”
(2) He said to them, “You have disregarded the living one who is in your presence and have spoken of the dead.”

Section from The Weeping Prophet
John 14.6 I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me. 
   In some Bible versions, Paul is quoted as saying Christ Jesus; in other versions, it is Jesus Christ. Is there a difference? There is a difference. Let’s examine the way, the truth and the life. What do these really say to us? The  simplest way to understand this is to say that the Way is Christ – Soul.  The Life is Jesus – Spirit. But what is Truth? Truth rests in the middle. Again, in the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus answers His disciples by saying, “ It is motion and rest.”  This would be to the question of, ‘what is the evidence of your Father in you?’
In the Gospel of Mary, Jesus answers Mary’s question of a vision seen – with the soul or the spirit – by saying, A person does not see with the soul or the spirit. Rather, the mind, which exists between these two, sees the vision …” 
So, it is quite safe to say that the Truth is The Vision, or Vision. And that motion and rest is the understanding in knowledge (Sophia), that Ascension.
Now, how is Christ Jesus the way, the truth and the life? Path (Way) + ___= Life. What is ___? It is Vision. Whether what you see is evil or good is supremely dependent on what you do with IT. For example, some have seen an angel of a beautiful presence, others have seen a limping, faceless monster breathing in almost growling heaves. Which is of truth? Most would believe the angel of the beautiful presence and begin praying to it, but the wise one is the truth prophet who has seen the wolf under the sheep’s clothing. Interestingly, I asked a young pastor once why his faith uses only 66 books in his bible while another’s faith uses 78 books. His answer was thoughtful, and wise. He told me, ‘It’s what you do with the Word that matters.’ Ah, yes … the Parable of the Talent applies here. Very wise indeed!
Now, if the Mind of God is the Vision, how are we to understand His words: I never knew you. Is God saying, “Who are you?” or is God saying, “Where are you?”
 The truth on this is a matter of placement.  Most believers will answer proudly, ‘worshipping you in the parish!’ Their eyes are fixed on the priest in his fine robes. This one sees the position but not the path. Still another arrives early and sees an empty seat, and says, “I will sit here that I might check the vineyard.” This one sees the pew in the path. One arrives and sees that someone has taken his seat and devises schemes to get rid of the one sent to check the vineyard. And this one sees not the path but only the pew. And then another says, “I have taken up my cross, Lord, and I ask for your guidance and strength in helping me to carry it.” This one picks up his pew and follows the path.
For where the mind is, there is the treasure. Gospel of Mary
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6.21
In the Heartmind, one has ascended heart to mind.  “It is motion and rest.” 
The Lord says …
Where are you? I came for you but found someone else in my place. Where are you? I came for you and found the place empty. Where are you?  I sent one to prepare the way and you beat her. Where are you?  I came but found the place dark. I never knew you, for you have not yearned in knowing Me.
The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Luke 11.34
