The Right to Bare … or Knot

May 7, 2015

A cord of three strands is not quickly broken … 2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

The cord in the passage from Ecclesiastes is responding to the way, the truth and the life spoken in John. John being What? Yahweh has given. (and recall Jesus told Peter: If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? follow thou me). The unbroken courtship (Relationship/Marriage/Communion) has everything to do with God and Man through What? What Yahweh has given. And Yahweh has given What? Gift(s). And What are these Gifts?

Shepherds with their flocks will come against her; they will pitch their tents round her, each tending his own portion.

The news has been full of the enshrined: Freedom of Speech. Many ask where and how this speech should  be exercised. And … where and how speech rears like a mighty monsoon and disables.

Think a moment …

What happens in the voice of gluttonous acts? People notice—people can’t help but notice. Something large and growing even larger demands more. Look at the events of Ferguson, MI … the events of Baltimore, MD more recently. People suffer. Oh, but it must happen, some chant, it must-it must-it must! Look what is coming out of it? Others decry its barbarism. Few would question the need for action where injustice seems to prevail, but that is not the only story, is it? The same ‘army’ needed to protect the speech of:

… is the same bullying … misusing and abusing their “freedom” as officers of the law of Government in the awful instances where men, women and children are suffering and dying ( http://news.yahoo.com/france-denies-cover-alleged-child-sex-abuse-troops-093641817. htmlhttp://www.theguardian.com/world/2012/jan/15/bosnia-sex-trafficking-whistleblower ).

A good and bad at war and what exacerbates these chaotic and riotous situations is anguish … and gluttony. One question hangs in the balance:

Who is responsible for the condition of Man?

Some would argue that it is man himself. Others take into account the environmental concerns, family arrangement, callous arbitration … poor or lack of education … and so on … In this, one question hangs in the balance:

Where does man find the words to denounce the fraud and hypocrisy of rule that keeps him and his brothers and sisters from the education, life, love … good pursuits that lead to behavior more presentable?

Speech that ignites terror, barbarism and chaos …

or speech that builds the minds and hearts to field what comes.

 

And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

A man sees a firecracker and says … gee, what I can do with that firecracker … make more firecrackers! Man feeds on the noise. It is exhilarating to him, and gives him the attention he desires. He is bored, angry, depressed … unloved … living on a Poverty of Malnutrition? Barren breasts? Beating his head against the role he plays? His own hapless state of intent … Careless crockery that breaks as it gets overfilled with the old, fermenting explosive and expensive niche …

The Emperor’s New Clothes is a fine gift on the incompetence of Man. A child’s play turned wise through the mention of two weavers born of different Monarchs. What breaks the shroud is the voice crying out:

“But he isn’t wearing anything at all!” 

 

TOAD EERO - revised

 

6They spoke to them just as Jesus had told them, and they gave them permission. 7They brought the colt to Jesus and put their coats on it; and He sat on it. 8And many spread their coats in the road, and others spread leafy branches which they had cut from the fields.… 

 

But where is man in this scene?

 

“Hosanna to the Son of David,” they became indignant and said to Him, “Do You hear what these children are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read, ‘OUT OF THE MOUTH OF INFANTS AND NURSING BABIES YOU HAVE PREPARED PRAISE FOR YOURSELF’?”…

“But he isn’t wearing anything at all!”

 

KIMBER AND VAN_0001

 

Some people  are afraid that they may arise from the dead naked, and so they want to arise in the flesh. They do not know that it is those who wear the [flesh] who are naked. Those who are [able] to take it off are not naked.

Flesh and blood will not inherit God’s Kingdom. What is this flesh that will not inherit? It is what we are wearing. And what is this flesh that will inherit? It is the flesh and blood of Jesus.

For this reason he said, “One who does not eat my flesh and drink my blood does not have life within. What does this mean? His flesh is the Word and his blood is the Holy Spirit. Whoever has received these has food, drink, and clothing. 

And I also disagree with others who say that the flesh will not arise. Both views are wrong. You say the flesh will not arise? Then tell me what will arise, so that we may salute you. You say it is the spirit in the flesh, and also the light in the flesh? But what is in the flesh is the word, and what are you talking about is nothing other than flesh. It is necessary to arise in this sort of flesh, since everything exists from it. 

In this world those who wear clothes are superior to the clothes. In heaven’s kingdom the clothes are superior to those who wear them. Gospel of Philip

 

What are we to say on this through Philip? He speaks of the Resurrection—his own, as well as all of Mankind. Is this not our departure from the world of man for the salvation of him who dines on the rights of those not illuminated? Tarry here if you must but know that there is no trick or riddle in these words. The Mystery finds itself moving within the cords. But what is illumination if man ignores its prize? Its Gift? Are the saints those who carry weapons of mass devastation? Of course not! There is not a single saint spoken of in the Word wearing the weaponry of force to undermine and steal, burden and bruise man in name but his own—man in his desire to rule another man through claim of authority. God was a convenient claim for man, but who hath seen God? No man hath seen God at any time. Man posing as the Authority claiming himself ruler and judge through doctrine he imposed on the people through law—force—theft—title—outlandish praise and weaponry … the tongue, creed, code, bold faced writing  … and those empty clothes. Wait, you say, how will we know one from another if not for the clothes? the creeds? the titles and proclamations? It depends on the code as much as it depends on the uniform. A man in police gear tells us what he is, and we hope that he is honest in this. A man in robes tells us what? Man has adorned him with …? Is this not man responsible for his own condition? He voted, approved, negotiated … signed as law … possessed … denied … applied … to gain his foundation?

But where is man not permitted to vote? What keepeth man from his God-given right to choose? Doctrine? Creeds? Titles? Laws? Robes … Ignorance? What doth man wear that keepeth another man from bearing the Gift God gave? Take up your cross and follow me is What? God …  (God is Spirit … John 4). And who is man that he should determine another man’s fate? Well, who is he? If man has not been given the voice to choose then how can another man choose for him? Who then becomes responsible for the paths men take where bad occurs? Should we make responsible the Institutions where the indoctrinated hold court and feast when bad occurs? Should we make responsible those ruling within this indoctrination? Man says, no, we cannot hold doctrine accountable if one man takes and feeds illicitly while another does not, unless it is decided by and for the people what is good and what is not good … But a sticky arises: what for whom? and so it is what we see in America, in progress, and not without turmoil and argument, but not so for all Nations.

Hold on … What never changes? Truth. Whose Truth? Is there more than one? We speak not of Religion on this Truth, so, set your bearings straight. What works for all Mankind? The Word is not a Documentary. It’s not a roll of the dice … not a Commune, not a Parliamentary Panel, not a Fairy floating high in the sky. It is not creepy Mariology (as some seem to think 😉  … nor is it a Call to worship Man in his Martyrdom and Marriages of isolation and decrees. It is a Conciliatory Partner. “No!” scream the Hell and Damnation Sects, “How will we round up Sinners if the Word is conciliatory?!” Partner, Conciliatory Partner, we say. You have forgotten God gifts free will. Oh.

Muddledom.

Some have trouble with this. Those not believing in God or Spirit don’t have trouble with the idea of self being offered free will. It seems a logical and permissive fact that all should aspire to … and all should be permitted. Be given free will and choose what is the best course of action for self and _______.  It is what comes after ‘self’ that becomes muddled. Questions arise: That man with the radical ideas about how all people should live … should he be given the right to choose? His ideas are dangerous. How about that guy over there … the one with the shaved head and strange markings on his arm … he rants online about this and that and  … What about the top dog dressed in the expensive white robe wearing the beanie cap one day and a tall pointed hat another … he claims full authority on God through his written laws … should he and his clan have free will?

All three examples pose a threat to Humankind if unattended in the sense of justice. How is the radical different from one claiming full authority on God? If God is Spirit and Spirit is Gift … who can say What Gift is? No one has seen God … so, how are we to believe what this clan or that clan says about God, and why should the Institutions of these be given something for the elevation and procurement of  ideas, doctrines, laws and not others? Who decides who gets what? Are we to believe and trust the robed figures? Let’s look at this again * if the ‘Atheists’ get wind of this, look out Roman Catholics, Orthodox and …

In this world those who wear clothes are superior to the clothes. In heaven’s kingdom the clothes are superior to those who wear them. 

We have also shared in SPIR that no one enters the Kingdom naked. A natural question would be: What is this Kingdom? Is this Kingdom God? No. What is heaven? We would ask, what is your name? Is my name the Kingdom of God? If so, what name?

Many believers have a System. Some give it names like, Christianity … the Church … the Eastern Orthodox Church … The System is the rule of practice, tradition and belief. Faith in God varies within this. Not all faith is the same. It’s not possible for faith to be measured through the Systems in a way that signifies Truth. Saying, “I am of the Church” does not determine the value and credibility of faith in God, because God is not seen but heard … and FAITH would depend on God Knowledge through experience (understanding). Faith in God is based on evidence through Truth, but faith in Institution can be manifest through participation and presentation. This is not difficult to see. The world is full of Religious Sects claiming God—claiming faith in God. We see their buildings, their writings, their garments and …

The nonbeliever says, “You cannot prove God exists.” As one of gnosis, it is not our work to prove God exists. God is instrumental in Spirit filtered through Human hands, and this can be anyone, depending on his honesty—his choice of truth. If a man says, “But I have never experienced Spirit. I have no knowledge of this. What must I do?” We could say, ask, seek … knock, but what are these to the unbelief? As a child, I spoke as a child, and said, “I believe anything can be. I believe in things I cannot touch because these harbor good to make love where there is none.” There was nothing to tie me down but the authority of those who owned me. My imagination could severe these ties, however, and move me to places inside that man cannot see. When I put away the things of a child was when I saw my place in the Congregation of the Priestly service. Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. But where is the hearing in this? you ask. You say you ‘saw’ your place. “Seeing is believing” is an act of truth. It is an active movement … a CONTINUOUS hearing. “But what did you see that allowed you to hear?” asks the nonbeliever.  I saw myself as a child. I saw myself growing. “But people see themselves grow. This is not unusual. This does not prove there is a God.” No, I am telling you, I saw myself as a child. I saw myself growing. I hear this. “That is nonsensical,” says the nonbeliever. The heart moves—it ascends to the mind. It demands this of itself for awareness of Spirit. This is of what we speak. It is a cataclysmic, evolving motion … one that cannot be denied.

“How do you differ from the Religionist then?” asks the nonbeliever.  My Name. My Faith. My Gift. The way, the truth … the life (light). I am. No one comes to the Father but through Me. *Nonbelievers, are you beginning to see why the Roman Catholic Church and others like it did not like the gnostic?

      Liberation Theology is just a fancy title for … I need you to make money to feed you, and still allow me position as authority over you in my Dogmatic existence 🙂

  1. opheliart permalink

    Over and over again I see Roman Catholics online mention CS Lewis as a great read and a credit to the believer … they use him as an example over and over again …
    I find it interesting to read this when they are so filled with pride for their “one, true church” and all other faith is either blind or not of the “fullness of truth” (their exact words).
    First of all, Roman Catholicism is a highly “pagan” religion … READ HISTORY and it is clear what it borrowed from other religions to establish its practices … it made up an entire SYSTEM then crusaded to establish itself as supreme power over others. Thankfully, there were areas where it was stopped. The act of overpowering others, the dominance, aggression, dogmatic and corrupt in no way constitutes the Word of God. SPIRIT DOES NOT OPERATE THAT WAY—it is not abusive, not systematic in nature … not corrosive, and it is not oppressive in its course. It does not demand allegiance in the way Religious narrative demands allegiance.
    The many “things” that these Religious Systems require of its followers are the very things that keep God from drawing near. Piety and devoutness to Systems of Belief (rosaries … absolutions … incantations … ) do not draw Spirit into activity … Spirit cannot be MANIPULATED through the dogmatic streams of Mankind—-THANK GOD! I shudder to think what would have happened had the RCC gained control of the world as it had intended. No INSTITUTION sets itself up in this manner and has the Essence of the Spirituality of Christ. “Christ” cannot exist in this subhuman patriarchal domain 😦

    Now … think man>>>>>>>>>>human
    What are we working toward? What must DECREASE TO ALLOW FOR AN INCREASE IN_____ 🙂

    “What should be easy calls in favor of religious freedom have instead become an aggressive stance against it,” Bush says. “Somebody here is being small-minded and intolerant, and it sure isn’t the nuns, ministers, and laymen and women who ask only to live and practice their faith.” JB

    Conscience? What Conscience? Does your chief Religious Superiors have a CONSCIENCE concerning the LCWR? How about WOMEN in general regarding PARTS OF A GREATER WHOLE IN RELIGIONDOM? You cry for Religious freedom but your own RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION is a bigoted, discriminating, even misogynistic Institution! Look at it! You look at it Jeb Bush and you tell us how anyone can vote for a man indoctrinated by Religious seclusion and ignorance on FEMALE PLACEMENT! Who the heck wants to become a nun when they can BE A PRIEST!

    Have you ever heard of the Royal Priesthood, Jeb? Don’t be ignorant on this please … you may have far more to offer … if you would only step outside the carriage and look around, sir.

    • opheliart permalink

      the RCs and go on and on about how the women of their parishes run everything (actually, they speak of the events calendars … not the script, or the theology … or the WORD AS WISDOM) we speak of the everlasting drink … the PRIESTHOOD AS THE ESSENCE … odd that the Essence is the FEMININE of the GODHOOD (Energy and Essence) and man in his mind has no Spiritual Knowledge of this … that he should exclude ‘women’ because they say Christ is a man …. ? They think in the flesh and focus on things of the flesh … not MATTERS OF THE SPIRIT (matters of the Heart).

      • opheliart permalink

        after all these years they are still in ignorance on [this]? 😦

        this is the poverty of the lie. they cannot see within mind or heart of anyone … and do not know of what lives within. if they had knowledge in this they would have seen the abusive and molesting priests, bishops and … but they are clouded by the flesh and their titles obscure the truth. they place stumbling blocks before the people and put all in danger. how foolish they are in their finery … strutting around like peacocks without the proper plumage

        outwardly there is a forest … they cannot see the make-up of the trees living inside this forest

    How would man know if there is MALE Spirit within Female frame … ? Who knows the mind of God? Never underestimate the power of the Holy Spirit.

    um, can someone explain ‘her’ relevance in this case? whether one is for or against the death penalty regarding THIS PARTICULAR CASE … the point of spending SO MUCH TIME AND $$$$$$ in the selection process was to make sure the process in this was held to its requirements—yes-no? the Roman Catholic BISHOPS have already pushed their very large weight around Boston and … to sway the minds of many … their FREEDOM OF RELIGION and FREEDOM OF SPEECH … now, in the courtroom?

    it’s already in the courtroom …

    the atheists need take care on who and what they defend
    or, if questioned … how does one respond?
