1 John 3:2-3
2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for gwe shall see Him as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

Jesus is the Saviour, the archetype, the Way, the Truth and the Life. We come to the Father through Jesus, and continue to conform to the image of Jesus.

I’ll intermix with teachings from orthodox canon to try to back up my interpretations.

After interpreting for myself, I will look at this book.

I believe Gospel of Thomas is totally legitimate

The Gospel of Thomas, I believe are specific instructions to His disciples to help them into the Kingdom of God, and then continue doing His work.

We must eat his words with hour hearts, I think.

We are becoming the temple for the Lord, collectively.

I want to study the Gospel of Thomas, but I am wary of the bad interpretations from the world that dominate interpretations.

I’m going to ‘give it an honest shot’.

Most of it rings true to me - that's why I can't dismiss it so easily.

I believe I felt the Holy Spirit grieve when I tried to remove this blog post, after watching a scathing video about it.

Table in progress.

If I feel a strong confirmation from the Holy Spirit, while writing this (like a fire), I will tick it. That’s not to say those without a tick, are not denied yet, it just means I haven’t looked at it yet with the intention to tick.

Preamble

Read
The Gospel of Thomas | The Gnostic Bible - YouTube

Firstly, nothing in here I have read so far contradicts the Gospel of Jesus if you keep them in abstraction. It’s easy to read these sayings literally and scoff at them, such as this person does.

Don’t be a scoffer.

Acts 13:41
‘Behold, you scoffers, and marvel, and perish; For I am accomplishing a work in your days, A work which you will never believe, though someone should describe it to you.’”

I’m quite confident in it, along with the Gospel of Philip.

The biggest issue for me is its association with other clearly heretical books.

See this video by Mike Winger:

I recognise Thomas is non-canonical, but so is my own theory, and my exegesis.

I wanted more parables to interpret and I found some in Thomas, so let’s go. So far I seem to be able to understand them.

The Gospel of Thomas has shaped my perceptions about what the place of life (afterlife) for followers of Christ is like. It has taken a fair bit of thoughtful meditation on the parables to interpret their meaning. I think it’s a positive exercise, though with this knowledge comes more responsibility, I believe.

The Gospel of Jesus is the true and actual gospel.

I need to look into universal Church.

Thomas probably shouldn’t be taught to newcomers. Also, it might just be an insight into the true Israel.

For starters, knowledge of God comes from active participation. It’s a journey, and there is a process by which a person comes to understand these sayings. That is perhaps why it is left out of the canonical Bible. But it’s important to continue seeking the truth.

Jesus is the ultimate Saviour of mankind. Aside from that, we can ourselves propagate that salvation and build the Kingdom. We ourselves are saving memories and people, truths within this world on behalf of Jesus.

Matthew 16:19
“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

The Gospel of Thomas

(1) And he said, "Whoever finds
the interpretation of these
sayings will not taste death."

This is according to the Gospel of Thomas.

I believe this means that you can die in this life and be resurrected with Christ.

I’ve been in this domain of death twice:

This is the Bridal Chamber, an absolutely vital lost teaching in Christianity, I believe, for being resurrected during your life on Earth.

I don’t expect to taste death; My soul will be reclaimed by God.

If you find the interpretation of these sayings, then that is only possible by your spirit being True.

I guess that means you are spiritually made of Truth and have already been born-again.

Now the key is to figure out how. It happened. Now I’m figuring it out in retrospect.

I do not think this initial saying says, “This document is the way to overcome death.”

It merely can only be understood retrospectively.

(2) Jesus said, "As for the one
who seeks, let him continue to
seek until he finds. When he
finds, he will become agitated.

When he becomes agitated, he will
be astounded, and he will reign
over the All."

The Holy Spirit tells me we should be wanting to purify ourselves to prepare for the Lord, not telling me to be chuffed about reigning over anything.


This is not merely self-realisation. The finding happens after God makes Himself known to you.

But initially it felt like a self-realisation, because I still hadn’t realised that God had initiated it.

Initially, it’s unsettling, for sure.

I sought and found by actively following the 10 commandments. I came up with a theory of the gospel in my own logic; A personal proof of God, which I believe to my core. Then the knowledge became astounding because the inheritance is more than I could imagine; We are not merely carbon-based bipedal life-forms descended from monkeys.

The realisation is literally becoming or assuming the promise to become a god of sorts, an immortal and truthful spirit but under the Father, if you are not against Him.

The Father is an infinite reservoir of spiritual Truth.

To an extent, under God, who is supremely Sovereign, we are also sovereign unto ourselves.

If you do not repent [in order to find your identity as a child of the True God], you remain in enmity towards God, and without God’s support you will experience Hell because the substance of ‘spirit’ that you are made of is indestructible, and the truth will eventually become hidden an unobtainable.

God is the source of Truth/Love needed to bring your spirit into Truth, and if you are not made of Truth, then you are placed with the rest of the lies. We need to be tethered to God like a child is connected to their mother via the umbilical cord.

Think about your privileged position in this world and the known universe; That is strong evidence. If you can conceive of God, then God probably exists.

See The Tapestry of Truth.

Doubting thoughts:

  • we’re pretty similar and not too different to monkeys, actually
  • we can’t see perfect truth, therefore how could God exists?
  • we have mortal bodies

Non-doubting thoughts:

  • out of nature we happen to be the crown jewel of creation
  • there is a way to change our spirits so we can see [by way of imagining] perfect truth (God), and if something can exist, it probably does
  • I am a child of God (belong to Truth)

I am saved/rescued/brought into the light, yes. But now we must be representatives of Jesus (bearers of His light, followers of Him), to help build the kingdom.

Discovering the Kingdom

This is what it really means to be ‘reigning’ over the ‘All’, I think.

What is the ‘All’? Perhaps I am still coming to discover it.

The All in my mind currently is the Kingdom of Heaven.

(3) Jesus said, "If the ones who
lead you should say to you, 'See,
the kingdom is in the heaven,'
then the birds of heaven will
precede you.

If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,'
then the fish will precede you. But,
the kingdom is inside of you, and
it is outside of you. When you
know yourselves then you will
become known, and you will
understand that you are the sons
of the living father. But if you will
not know yourselves, you dwell in
poverty and it is you who are that
poverty.

Firstly Come to a realisation of your spiritual self, and identify as a son of the True and Living Most High God.

Update <2022-06-27 Mon>
When God’s spirit comes to dwell inside of you, the soul is regenerated over time.

If the Kingdom is inside you then it’s the regeneration of spirit and the aggregation of memories of selfless love which become imprinted on spirit (recorded), and treasures in Heaven/the place of life/the kingdom.

Rom. 14:17
Paul said, “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit”

The Holy Spirit comes to live inside you.

Luke 17:20–21
Jesus says, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you”.

In the Gospel of Thomas it also says it’s all around you.

This is confirmed in Matthew.

Matthew 16:19 ESV
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

We are building the Kingdom of Heaven right now. We bind things on Earth. If I truly love my cat, I keep her in Heaven. If I give selflessly, I keep that memory in Heaven. If I help someone to see themselves as Truth, they become part of the Kingdom of Heaven as well. The things I don’t identify as truth will be loosed; The lies, the things we do in this life which are untrue.

Know yourself and be known

Surely it’s like this:

(4) Jesus said, "The man old in
days will not hesitate to ask a
small child seven days old about
the place of life, and he will live.

For many who are first will become
last, and they will become one and
the same."

The place of life is the place where a spirit is True. Without light shining white and pure through a Truthful person, the world is dark.

If people see the light they may learn to shine it themselves. In that way, light may beget more light.

Jesus is the light of the world. We can open ourselves up, conforming to the image of Christ, to let that light shine too.

The first are those born earlier. The last are the people who found the light later. The light is sight into the Dimension of Light, such as seeing angels, or merely Truth that comes from being spiritually pure and True, and allowing God’s light to shine through them.

(5) Jesus said, "Recognize what Is
before your face, and that which is
hidden from you will be revealed.
For there is nothing hidden that
will not become revealed."

Know what the world is. If you see yourself as being apart from it, that may be the first step. Know what your body is, which is not your spirit.

I’m removing this concept of ego.

The tapestry of truth document explains this by saying that everything you experience is a hologram projected through your spirit.

Classify it. See that you are not it completely. Some people talk about the ego.

spirit
    The part of man that connects and
    communicates with God.

    Our spirit differs from our soul because
    our spirit is always pointed toward and
    exists exclusively for God, whereas our
    soul can be self-centered.

    The joy, comfort and peace of God's
    presence can only be experienced through
    our spirit.

Then you will come to know yourself.

With knowledge of this, you will realise that inevitably you will come to know yourself, and yourself will be known to what follows (in the Kingdom of Heaven), which could be said is the preserved/saved truth from Earth and more.

You may be known by your truth to others.

You may be seen - The Dimension of Light // Bodacious Blog.

When what is hidden from you is revealed.

If you find yourself broken, you may discover the spiritual truth of Jesus - the need for saving. If Jesus has healed your heart, you may also discover your spirit-man.

Knowledge of self precedes asking to be saved, I think. I think at this point a person must accept the free gift of salvation which changes the heart. That is a process where a person’s identity is changed. And how is that done? My method: The Tapestry of Truth // Bodacious Blog

You will also realise that your spirit may have been previously mastered by your body; It was hidden, but now it is not. Now you may master your body with your spirit.

The world we engage with we see ultimately through our spirit eyes, then our beliefs system.

If our spirit is true we see truth and lies with respect to the truthfulness of spirit, in our beliefs system and in the world.

The world is the place we can acquire treasure by making things true - through forgiveness, selfless love, etc.

(6) His disciples questioned him
and said to him, "Do you want us
to fast? And how shall we pray?
Shall we give alms? What kind of
diet shall we observe?"

Jesus said, "Do not tell lies, and do
not do what you hate, for all things
are revealed before heaven.

For there is nothing hidden which
will not become manifest, and
nothing covered will remain
without being uncovered."
  • Do not tell lies
    • Become an honest person
  • Do not do what you hate
    • Become an honest person

Jesus’ salvation is for everyone. Become an honest person; This is the key.

You must do this in line with divine law.

  • Be truthful (in the heart)
    • Honest
    • God the Father is your God
    • etc…
  • Be faithful
  • etc…

In the spirit, we aggregate memories in the form of lies (which defile) and acts of selfless love and memories of what we find truthful.

When we come into the Kingdom of Heaven, what we have bound in Truth will be bound to us spiritually.

This is treasure in the place of life. The treasures will be kept ultimately. The lies will be burned and destroyed.

If you yourself are a lie then you’ll also be burned and destroyed.

the man whom the lion will eat, so
that the lion becomes a man."

It is the most confusing of all Thomas Sayings, I think, and I have not yet got a definite answer.

This mentions two pathways about how to make a ’lion’ into a ‘man’.

I think it relates strongly to the opening of Gospel of Philip.

is dead inherits what is living he will not          |
die, but he who is dead will live even more.         |

I want to come back to this saying.

What about this verse from 1 Peter 5:8?

It’s possible that the devil must eat people to ‘steal’ light in order to survive, because is not powered by God anymore, or something like that.

“Be sober-minded; be watchful,” warns Peter. “Your adversary the devil
prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour”

1 Peter 5:8, English Standard Version.

And from Gospel of Peter:

3
"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"
is reported in Peter as "My power, my power,
thou hast forsaken me".

God empowers/powers us with His light I believe.

Another thought:

It may also be about interacting with spirits and giving up the ‘pearl’ which may be giving up the seat of your consciousness to an external spirit. Now when interacting with somebody or something, protect yourself from spiritual thieves. Do not allow them to drink from your cistern.

It’s possible also that

(8) And he said, "The man is like a
wise fisherman who threw his net
into the sea and drew it up from
the sea. It was full of small fish.
Among them the wise fisherman
found a good large fish.

He threw all the small fish back
into the sea and without much
trouble chose the large fish.
Whoever has ears to hear, let him
hear."
Exodus 20:3-5
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

If a person finds identity in and conforming to the archetype of Jesus it’s better than finding identity in and conforming to any or many smaller fish.

There are other so-called gods or perhaps angels one may try to assume the mind of.

1 Corinthians 8:5
For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”), yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live. 7 But not everyone possesses this knowledge. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that when they eat sacrificial food they think of it as having been sacrificed to a god, and since their conscience is weak, it is defiled. 8 But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do.

Big fish:

  • Rama, an avatar of Vishnu, in Hinduism
  • Krishna
  • Buddha

Biggest fish:

  • Jesus Christ
  • God the Father

So if God the Father (of Truth and Love) is your supreme God, then the rest is just semantics.

Jesus is the biggest fish but any avatar of Vishnu, say constitutes a fairly large fish.

If you cast your metaphorical net in India and draw up the metaphorical fish, being that which you would want to imitate, then they would be avatars of Vishnu.

We must choose the big fish to become like.

The God of Truth / God the Father by His many names across many cultures is whom we indisputably want to return to and be a part of.

As a Christian, I believe that following Jesus is our greatest calling, and that Jesus is the biggest fish, and that making Jesus Lord redeems us to bring us back into Truth.

"Christians believe Jesus alone shares
complete bodily and spiritual identity with
God. Attempts are often made to describe Jesus
as an avatar, a Hindu term. The word 'avatar'
in Sanskrit means 'descent into visible form'
and refers to God descending on the earth in a
human (or even non-human) form to lead us to a
higher stage of perfection.

The Savior image [is the mediator] between God and the sinful race of humans.

Unlike prophets, avatars do not serve as intermediaries chosen by God, nor are they absolutely necessary in order for humans to understand God’s will in shaping history.”

(9) Jesus said, "See, the sower went
out, took a handful of seeds, and
scattered them. Some fell on the
road and the birds came and
gathered them up. Others fell on
the rock, and they did not take
root in the soil, and did not yield
ears. And others fell on the thorns;
they choked the seed and worms
ate them. Still, others fell on the
soil that was good and this
produced good fruit: for it bore
sixty per measure and a hundred
and twenty per measure."

The Earth is God’s vineyard, where He throws seed. Churches on earth are like vineyards. A person’s mind and heart is like a vineyard.

When the Word of God is heard by a person, where does that person put the truth? It must be embedded in spirit, which is at the base of personal truth, on a foundation of honest personal truth (and integrity).

If the spirit still contains lies then thorns will grow and choke the plants, even after they have been growing.

(10) Jesus said, "I have cast fire
upon the world, and see, I am
watching it until it blazes."

When a person has the Holy Spirit living within them, they have a fire burning in them. He started the fire. We can keep it going for Him. We have to spread the fire.

The fire may be the revelation of truth into the world, he himself being the original fire.

The Gospel of Christ and the law of Christ is fire, particularly when the fire burns in a person’s heart - Jesus burns in a person’s heart - He has entered.

Fire is also the gospel or testimonies of a representative of Christ, if it is true. Like a small fire growing, He watches until the truth of it reaches a blazing fire, where it is being lived out and accepted.

I think it’s a call for us to do the same. Jesus, in spirit continues to watch, waiting for it to blaze. Do we ourselves have to cast ‘fire’ upon the world through our spirit until what we perceive is ablaze with love and compassion? What does that mean?

Perhaps it means that we ourselves like Jesus, do this, or once we start down the path of knowledge of truth and the accumulation of spiritual treasure, the blaze runs its course. What the blaze looks like to me is the third astral experience I had - Astral Projection Pt. 3 // Bodacious Blog.

For that reason we should use our time wisely to collect treasure (do works of righteousness), casting fire similarly to Jesus until the fire blazes.

will pass away too. The dead are
not living, and the living will not
die. In the days when you ate what
is dead, you made it into
something alive. When you come
to exist in the light, what will you
do? On the day you were one you
became two. But when you
become two, what will you do?"

Ohhhh! I get it. I know I’m alive - I am a living spirit, but the dead (ones without the Holy Spirit) are not alive in the same sense.

This is the day I was one
Astral Projection Part 1 - Death with Jesus // Bodacious Blog

I am two now (my earthly soul is bound to an angelic one).


This heaven being earth, and the one above it, being what we typically regard as the heaven made at creation - They will both pass away.

Matthew 24:35
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

What does not pass away is truth.

When we make what is dead alive by bringing others into the knowledge of spiritual truth, we accumulate more truth for the body of Christ, by recording in spirit testifying truth.

We can help people find their identity in God and become truth themselves.

We had been giving life to the world I guess? Giving life to lies and deception.

We must be choosing wisely what we want to make alive.

We must also be:

leader?"

point you come to, you should go
to James the Righteous, on his
account heaven and earth came
into existence."

The way I interpret this is that firstly, heaven and earth came into existence (were made) for the righteous inheritors, people who are representatives of Jesus, to be found in the community.

(13) Jesus said to his disciples,
"Compare me to someone else
and tell me whom I am like."
Simon Peter said to him, "You are
like a righteous angel."

Matthew said to him, "You are like
a wise philosopher."

Thomas said to him, "Teacher, my
mouth is entirely incapable of
saying whom you are like."

Jesus said, "I am not your teacher.
Since you have imbibed, you have
become drunk on the bubbling
spring which I have measured out."
And he took him and withdrew and
told him three things.

When Thomas returned to his
companions, they asked him,
"What did Jesus say to you?"

Thomas said to them, "Were I to
tell you even one of these things
which he told me, you will pick up
stones and throw them at me; and
the fire will come out of the stones
and consume you."

Thomas became drunk on the bubbling spring which was measured out. What would be the result of that?

Jesus told Thomas He is not his teacher.

This is my thought: I think what it means is that by becoming drunk on the bubbling spring which was measured out, Thomas has reached a level where he is now able to teach.

Firstly, what is the bubbling spring? Is the bubbling spring also the fire or is it different?

I think it’s the word of life. It could be the Holy Spirit too but I don’t know if this saying comes from the resurrected Christ.

I think what may have been said about this would’ve been highly blasphemous in their eyes.

Thomas had imbibed (made his spirit true, and become drunk), and internalised a lot of knowledge from Jesus. He’s getting a lot of revelation through the Holy Spirit.

Therefore, I would say it was probably something as tricky to understand/accept as “Thomas is now like Himself, Jesus. Or perhaps it was something like children of God are gods.”

I think it’s more than that.


The fire out of the stones. See Saying 77.

Love your brother like your own soul.


What is the fire from the stones? I think little fires start in the heart and belly of Christians that have the Holy Spirit inside them. What is this fire? Is it the fire of the burning bush? It’s a fire in a higher dimension - the dimension of light.

It’s the confirmation of spiritual truth from the other side.

The little candle in the heart is the spirit of man (the candle of the LORD), and lights up the belly, truly.

When we do what is correct, we are filled with light and fire - the candle shines.

We must try to relight the world with it.

(14) Jesus said to them, "If you fast,
you will cause yourself to sin; if you
pray, you will be self-condemned;
and if you give alms, you will inflict
harm on your spirits.

When you go into each land and
walk in the districts, if they should
receive you, eat what they put
before you, and heal the sick
among them.

For what goes into your mouth will
not defile you, but what comes out
of your mouth - is what will defile
you."

This one sounds terrible at first glance, but makes sense. He is talking specifically to Holy-Spirit filled disciples.

Mark 2:19
And Jesus said unto them, Can the friends of the bridegroom fast, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.

For the disciples of Jesus, who are wed to the Holy Spirit, should also be led by the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit may take you into new lands, and eat what they put before you. Heal their sick; Demonstrate the God’s power.

If you fast while you have the Holy Spirit burns within you then you may not be being led. Fast when the bridegroom comes out of the bridal chamber, you should fast and pray.

Saying 82
Jesus said, “He who is near me is near the fire, and he who is far from me is far from the kingdom.”

See 104:

(104) They said [to him]: Come, let us pray
today and fast. Jesus said: What then is the
sin that I have done, or in what have I been
overcome? But when the bridegroom comes out
from the bridal chamber, then let them fast
and pray.
(Mark 2:19–20, NRSV; see Matt 9:14–15; Luke 5:33–35
Jesus responds, “The wedding guests cannot fast while the bridegroom is with them, can they? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast on that day”

Generally, people should definitely give alms. Your spirit is not harmed when giving alms.

However, if you know what you should do and you fast instead, then that is probably wrong.

He wants the disciples to put down everything and follow the prompting of the Holy Spirit, and listen to the bridegroom’s voice!

Fasting, praying and giving alms are all important for Christians to do (when the bridegroom is not with them). But when the bridegroom is with them (the fire in their belly) they are to be led by the Holy Spirit.

Therefore, the Holy Spirit burning within me right now is telling me it’s more important for me to finish the Gospel of Thomas interpretation before returning to give alms again - and I should also focus on this without fasting.

Being near Jesus and near the fire is what enables people to heal.

There is a time for fasting, praying and giving alms.

In the Gospel of John, John the Baptist speaks
of Jesus Christ as the bridegroom and mentions
the bride. He that hath the bride is the
bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom,
which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth
greatly because of the bridegroom's voice:
thus my joy therefore is fulfilled.

The bridegroom’s voice (Jesus’ voice). When a person is near Jesus, the fire burns inside them. They follow His voice.

(15) Jesus said, “When you see one who was not
born of woman, prostrate yourselves on your
faces and worship him. That one is your
father.”

You must keep the Sabbath as a Sabbath to see the Father.

Keep God as a factor in everything.

The revelation for me may have happened when I wrote began writing this:

Which was on Easter Sunday. I had taken a break, even from attending Church that day, but I may have been writing still.

But it allowed me to understand God as perfect Truth, with a follow-up article:

Have I seen the Father yet, or is there something left to see?

One not born of woman seems to mean not born of the world. Yes, this came later.

The first Spirit I have ever seen (in the dark), but never looked at was the Holy Spirit - Was this the Father? Perhaps it was.

Anyone born of this world is born of woman, you see.

But this person was not, and indeed was a person made of pure spirit.

It must have been the Father.

Ah, on the day I became 1, I became 2.


Further thoughts:

In my third astral projection, I experienced what it was like to have a spirit not of my own - in another’s shoes and it was pure Love.

For this reason, I am sure that God the Father (Absolute Love) is my spiritual father, because this intrinsic aspect of His character has been revealed to me.

Well the instruction now is to worship.

New King James Version
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.

Therefore, I must love like God does, in spirit and truth, and that is my act of worship. Now love of this kind is absolute, selfless care and compassion.

Let’s make this practical. I will select someone who I claim to truly love and love them more closely to this way instead.

In doing so, start by loving compassionately.

Galatians 4:4 ESV
But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.
Job 15:14
What is man, that he can be pure? Or he who is born of a woman, that he can be righteous?

Well, God would not be born under law. God would also not be born.

I want to see this person (God the Father). The Father has been revealed in my second Astral Projection, I think.

(16) Jesus said: Perhaps men think that I am
come to cast peace upon the world; and they do
not know that I am come to cast dissensions
upon the earth, fire, sword, war. For there
will be five who are in a house; three shall
be against two and two against three, the
father against the son and the son against the
father, and they shall stand (be lifted up) as solitaries

Yes, I see.

In order to truly follow, a person must become a solitary.

I’m satisfied with this idea of being lifted up as solitaries.

In order to follow Jesus from the heart and in Truth, a person is forced to confront others where something is not true for both of them at this point in time and space.

See the importance of personal truth.

Yes, I agree that Jesus was not trying to bring about peace, but the peace that Jesus gives us is inner peace.

IMHO what Jesus is saying here is that he is

upon individuals. There is a dichotomy in the
gospels between the peace in the individual
which Jesus promises and the peace in the
world which he knows (prophetically) he cannot
bring.

This is me. I was already aware I was fully alive before becoming a living spirit. I do understand the difference though.

children who have settled in a field which
does not belong to them. When the owners of
the field come, they will say: Leave us our
field. They are naked before them, in order to
leave it to them and give them (back) their
field. Therefore I say: If the master of the
house knows that the thief is coming, he will
keep watch before he comes, and will not let
him dig through into his house of his kingdom
to carry off his things. You, then, be
watchful over against the world; gird your
loins with great strength, that the robbers
may find no way to come at you. For the
advantage for which you look, they will find.
May there be among you a man of understanding!

Something compelled me to burn her image into my mind’s eye so I can see her everywhere. As I do that, I get that really good fire in chest feeling. The more I want to become her the warmer I get (reminiscent of Thomas 82); To get closer to the Kingdom, must get closer to the fire.

(22) Jesus saw some infants who were being
suckled. He said to his disciples: These
infants being suckled are like those who enter
the kingdom. They said to him: If we then
become children, shall we enter the kingdom?
Jesus said to them: When you make the two one,
and when you make the inside as the outside,
and the outside as the inside, and the upper
as the lower, and when you make the male and
the female into a single one, so that the male
is not male and the female not female, and
when you make eyes in place of an eye, and a
hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place
of a foot, an image in place of an image, then
shall you enter [the kingdom].

We have to align our personal truth with absolute truth, then we are seen and met and connected with our spiritual counterpart.

Galatians 3:28
There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus

Honestly, this is confusing! But I have ideas!

Gospel of Philip
Truth is the mother, knowledge the father.

  • Two one
    • Like the infant and the mother - the person suckles on Truth
    • We must see ourselves as an extension of Truth, as a vine, rather than separating ourselves from it.
      • Or as branches to the True vine, Jesus, the vine of Truth.
    • We become part of the vine.
      • The Truth we suckle from the vine is directly made into action.
  • Inside as the outside
    • Intentions and motives voiced on the outside. What you actually think, say and do, express.
    • When you understand the outside to be a reflection of the inside.
    • This way you can make the two into the one.
  • Outside as the inside
    • Outside expression faithful representations of the inside - do not lie; Do not express falsehoods.
  • Upper as the lower
  • Male and female into a single one so male is not male and female not female
  • Eyes in place of an eye
    • Be an eye for others.
    • Other people being your eyes?
    • Or is this listening to Jesus’ voice after angelic marriage
  • Hand in place of a hand
    • Be a hand for others
    • Then other people being your hands?
    • Perhaps it means, acquire from each other the things which you lack.
  • Foot in place of a foot
    • Other people being your feet?
  • Image in place of an image
    • Being like Christ
      • Can only achieve this by imitation
    • I’m burning 🍓 into my mind’s eye

To integrate oneself into the Kingdom, they must become trustworthy and able to be integrated.

They must conform to the image of Christ.

not: let them marry.

37 Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in

This is similar to reincarnation, but is of Archetypes. It may be that when a person is paired with an Angel of the Saviour in the Bridal Chamber that they become an archetype, and have a memory download from that Angel.

We are chosen to continue the work that Jesus was doing.

It is possible that the original disciples are reincarnated:

I saw myself being escaped from prison, therefore I may be an archetype of Peter, paired with an Angel - but which one? Gabriel?

(27) <Jesus> said: If you do not fast to the
world, you will not find the kingdom; if you
do not keep the Sabbath as Sabbath, you will
not see the Father.

Fasting to the world isn’t just abstaining from food and drink; It’s abstaining from the things which are guilty pleasures and false substitutes for what you really need.

See the soul-bond section of Tapestry of Truth.

John 14:7
If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

If you really know Jesus, you will know God the Father. The way I interpret this is Jesus has a spirit of absolute Truth.

If you truly know Jesus you’ve seen God, and you know what absolute spiritual (personal) Truth is.

If you follow the commandments from the heart (without cheating to yourself); For example, do you go further than what is merely deemed socially acceptable when following commandments, or do you follow them to the point where you can say to yourself you have given/sacrificed everything (mind, body, spirit, possessions), to follow the commandment?

Likewise, the Sabbath is observed from the heart (factor God into every aspect, just as Jesus taught about other commandments such as murder and adultery).

Jesus also implies that in doing so, you will see the Father; I.e. you have to follow the commandments from the heart to see the Father.

If you truly know Jesus, you’d see that He is the person following God’s commandments from the heart; Then you’d see the Father.

8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the
Father, and it sufficeth us. 9 Jesus saith unto
him, Have I been so long time with you, and
yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that
hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how
sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father,
and the Father in me? the words that I speak
unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father
that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

The Father dwells in Jesus; Jesus has absolute Truth inside him. Likewise, Jesus’ spirit is absolute Truth, so He is in the Father.


With regards to fasting; Give up what you are doing and eat Jesus words with your heart.

That involves active seeking; Reading the scripture for understanding; Taking it to heart; Ingesting it into your spirit.

That requires denying the world, and being led by the voice of Truth instead. It’s hard but I guess a person needs to have a place where they can rest and focus on what is True.

Then seek after Truth with all your heart and strength!

OK, literally treat the Sabbath like a Sabbath. You must take a full day out, so you have a restful day - that is the way.

If a person wants to astral project, a person must be extremely rested.

Meeting with the Father, I believe:

sons of men; for they are blind in their
heart, and they do not see that they came
empty into the world, (and) empty they seek to
leave the world again. But now they are drunk.
When they have thrown off their wine, they
will repent.

(29) Jesus said: If the flesh came into
existence because of the spirit, it is a
marvel. But if the spirit (came into
existence) because of the body, it is a marvel
of marvels. But as for me, I wonder at this,
how this great wealth made its home in this
poverty.

The spirit of God was able to create flesh. Now that might have been the way Jesus’ earthly body was conceived within Mary - I think that yes.

I believe that what this means is that even the dead (not pre-destined) can receive a living spirit in their heart.

Also, the Elect were already sons of God predestined - See Saying 19.

What this is saying is that as followers of Jesus with the Holy Spirit inside of us, we can bring others to life by giving them the Holy Spirit too!

That means it’s actually possible to bring in people of all different shapes and sizes. We simple need to help them to follow God’s divine law, helping them to find their center, become truthful people, and then ask them to ask the Holy Spirit to live within them!

I had a dream about two people believing they could save the third.

Well, my strong gut feeling was I want to save this person.

In this dream each person flipped to see if they would survive judgement - They were people.

A person with the Holy Spirit inside them is a living spirit and a god, but under the Father.

When a quack doctor arrives,
one person sees him as their rescuer, or another a
nuisance - that's tied to the person's unique
situation and perspective. Personal truth and identity are important.
What is a broken brick in relation to a wall
with another broken brick fitting its
brokenness perfectly? The broken brick doesn't
reject its unique identity, since its unique
identity finds its place uniquely. The
personal identity and truth is unchanged but
there is also knowledge that they have a special place
reserved uniquely for them to accommodate their nature.

Personal identity accepted, person now has integrity and accepts themself.

The strong man’s house. What is it? It’s possible that it’s this - demonic oppression:

I believe I had been liberated from demonic oppression. Jesus bound the strong man’s hands.

Now I understand scripture far more clearly, and not only that but I understand how eternal life works far more clearly, and all spiritual things.

On top of this, it could be that a strong man tries to hold a ‘virtual house’ (for example, a subreddit - that is because virtual reality is a virtual extension of consciousness).

In this case, the forum is being held captive by demonic oppression.

yourselves and are not ashamed, and take your
garments and lay them beneath your feet like
the little children (and) trample on them,
then [you will see] the Son of the Living One,
and you will not be afraid.

This is very cute, and has a double-message I think.

There’s something spiritual about imitation.

When you let something sink into the spirit and become it, in some sense you become that person spiritually, or find that person spiritually (in a higher dimension).

This is why eating Jesus' words with the heart is like a metaphysical telephone number for finding and coming close to Jesus and becoming like Him.

You have to become innocent, like children are innocent - unashamed of yourself.

Firstly, literally do this. Secondly, become like this; Innocent.

Then, I believe, Jesus is revealed to you.

It’s saying when you are unashamed of yourself and you don’t care for material things, take a look in the mirror - in a sense it’s you because you may be a child of God and may be of the archetype - if you are innocent.

In another sense, you may have an experience like I had:

He’s probably talking about how the Gospel of Thomas was destroyed by the orthodox church, buried and lost until 1945.

Let’s do our best to prevent this from being lost again!

But also, yes, for me personally I have desired to hear this many times, and no-one told me.

Therefore, I have to ensure when or if the bridegroom leaves I will fast and pray.

A vine has been planted outside of the Father.

Consider these:

All Gospels with the Gospel of Jesus as the cornerstone, are essentially helping to build the Kingdom of God.

Jesus is the True vine, that leads you into knowledge of the Father. Light shines through the True vine.

The vine outside of the Father ensnares people. Some people with light in them actually feed the false vine. People go to this vine, but it’s a pyramid scheme. The false vine and pyramid scheme of the Kingdom of Darkness will be uprooted and destroyed.

the branches that do bear fruit so they will
produce even more. 3 You have already been
pruned and purified by the message I have
given you. 4 Remain in me, and I will remain
in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if
it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be
fruitful unless you remain in me.

5 “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches.
Those who remain in me, and I in them, will
produce much fruit. For apart from me you can
do nothing. 6 Anyone who does not remain in me
is thrown away like a useless branch and
withers. Such branches are gathered into a
pile to be burned. 7 But if you remain in me
and my words remain in you, you may ask for
anything you want, and it will be granted! 8

disciples. This brings great glory to my

Take some of the light while you are in this world, and remain close to the fire in your heart.

If you remain close to the fire then you will be close to Jesus. You’ll be able to interpret scripture etc. and do the will of Jesus more easily, so long as you remain close.

Firstly, you have to learn to discern the voice – follow Truth and true Love. Then you must learn to trust in the voice.

(44) Jesus said: He who blasphemes against the
Father will be forgiven, and he who blasphemes
against the Son will be forgiven; but he who
blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be
forgiven, either on earth or in heaven.

God absolutely loves you. How could anyone blaspheme against the Holy Spirit? So pure and innocent.

This is the way to be unsaved. I don’t know how it works. However, the Holy Spirit is your witness, your Comforter, your Councilor.

The Holy Spirit fits with our spirit like a glove and is love to us.

I really don’t want to think about this.

Here’s some ideas:

  • Blaspheming against it would probably be blaspheming against the Way you have been saved according to your personal truth shape, since God has a unique piece for you, and wants to save you uniquely.

I don’t know!

(45) Jesus said: Grapes are not harvested from
thorn-bushes, nor are figs gathered from
hawthorns, [f]or they yield no fruit. [A go]od
man brings forth good from his treasure; a bad
man brings forth evil things from his evil
treasure, which is in his heart, and he says
evil things, for out of the abundance of his
heart he brings froth evil things.
  • Yes, treasure is in the heart.
    • I have treasure to give God upon returning.

Our hearts should be full of good treasure. We should purify ourselves to prevent us from bring forth bad fruit. Then good fruit will come forth naturally. The fruit is harvested every now and then.

(46) Jesus said: From Adam to John the Baptist
there is among the children of women none
higher than John the Baptist, for his eyes
were not destroyed (?). But I have said:
Whoever among you becomes small will know the
kingdom and will be higher than John.

John the Baptist’s eyes (his heart I guess) was not destroyed, therefore, he was able to know God and that Jesus was to come to set other people free.

However, the Kingdom has arrived and we can know it and become even greater than John the Baptist.

The heart (spirit identity) is the eyes to God.

You have to really humble yourself. Treat the world as a game, I guess, and go out and talk to God’s children who are like children.

Just humble yourself and you will see angels, etc. and the happenings of the Kingdom on Earth.

(47) Jesus said: It is not possible for a man
to ride two horses or stretch two bows; and it
is not possible for a servant to serve two
masters, unless he honours the one and insults
the other. No one drinks old wine and
immediately desires to drink new wine. And new
wine is not poured into old wineskins, lest
they burst; nor is old wine poured into a new
wineskin, lest it spoil. An old patch is not
sewn on a new garment, for a rent would
result.

You have to:

  • purify yourself with water by repenting
  • allow the holy spirit to purify you with fire

If you want more of the Holy Spirit you have to not continue drinking from the wrong cistern and polluting it, or you will prevent yourself from receiving more of the good stuff (water of life)

The new patch is sown onto your spirit, literally, through the bridal chamber. But you must become a bride - pure in spirit - and ask for the ‘Holy Spirit to come inside’, which merges your spirits.

Thy Bridal Chamber // Bodacious Blog

This is an angelic marriage of spirits; Your own with the missing piece from Jesus.

(48) Jesus said: If two make peace with one
another in this one house, they will say to
the mountain: Be removed, and it will be
removed.

Jesus is probably talking about making peace with brothers and sisters in the Kingdom of God.

I guess it applies to those in the Kingdom - This is my current understanding. Forgiveness is a great way to remove a mountain.

I drove to my friend Simon’s house after writing Tapestry of Truth to apologies because through him I discovered what is personal truth, without knowing if he’d be there – without having spoken to him for many months.

I waited only 20 minutes on his doorstep and he returned from a 4 day hike. That’s a miracle.

the light, the place where the light came into
being of itself. It [established itself], and
it revealed itself in their image. If they say
to you: Who are you?, say: We are his sons,
and we are the elect of the living Father. If
they ask you: What is the sign of your Father
in you?, say to them: It is movement and rest.

This is definitely me.

This sounds like an instruction; “If they ask you: What is the sign of your Father in you?, say to them: It is movement and rest."

Find yourself a place of rest, too.

(52) His disciples said to him: Twenty-four

about the dead.

Now, abandoning the living one (Father of Truth, I believe), means abandoning spiritual Truth.

Speaking about the dead is putting attention to the worldly and material corpse.

(53) His disciples said to him: Is

I talk about it here:

(55) Jesus said: He who does not hate his
father and his mother cannot be a disciple to
me. And (he who does not) hate his brothers
and sisters and take up his cross like me,
will not be worthy of me.

The issue is coming to the realisation of a person’s True parent.

The disciple of Jesus must ‘follow’ Jesus and move beyond the knowledge of Earthly brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers, in order to truly seek after the truth.

Do not be bottle-necked by Earthly parents.

This is a lot like Thomas 16.

Today I had a fight with my earthly father over an invasion into my personal things. I have a few very simple rules. One of them is I draw a hard line with regard to privacy.

A disciple of Jesus has to be able to defend Truth, and help others to find it.

The cross to carry is to allow people to persecute you.

There have been other times where I allowed others to feel righteous while condemning me, knowing that I have actually done nothing wrong, but not defending myself.

This is what I think it means to carry one’s own cross.

You must hold onto your personal relationship with God and hold onto that Truth above accepting spiritually the assertions made by others including Earthly parents; We are turned into angelic solitaries so that we make stand as a single one.

See Thomas 16.

(56) Jesus said: He who has known the world

Hold fast to what is true, and you will see that the world changes but what’s in your heart does not.

Jesus’ fire remains. Remain close to the Kingdom, which is eternal, and sits as an abstraction above the corpse that is the world, and the Kingdom exists in the light (Truth).

The man did not allow them to pull up the
weeds. He said to them: Lest you go and pull
up the weeds, (and) pull up the wheat with it.
For on the day of the harvest the weeds will
be manifest; they will be pulled up and
burned.

    • The Kingdom is built invertedly, with Jesus as the cornerstone

lamb? They said to him: Kill it and eat it. He
said to them: While it is alive he will not
eat it, but (only) when he kills it (and) it
becomes a corpse. They said to him: Otherwise
he cannot do it. He said to them: You also,
seek a place for yourselves in rest, that you
may not become a corpse and be eaten.

(61) Jesus said: Two will rest upon a bed; one

you, man, whose son? You have mounted my bed
and eaten from my table. Jesus said to her: I
am he who comes forth from the one who is
equal; I was given of the things of my Father.
<Salome said:> I am your disciple. <Jesus said
to her:> Therefore I say: If he is equal, he
is full of light, but if he is divided, he
will be full of darkness.

Firstly, a person must become a mathematical identity in spiritual truth. He says that the Father is equal. Do you see? God the Father is the perfect identity, Truth.

and in that night he died. He who has ears,

He said: I have money with some merchants;
they are coming to me this evening.

I will go and give them my orders.

I ask to be excused from the dinner.

He went to another (and) said to him: My

He said to him: I have bought a house, and I
am asked for a day.

I shall not have time.

He went to another (and) said to him: My

He said to him: My friend is about to be
married, and I am to arrange the dinner.

I shall not be able to come.

I ask to be excused from dinner.

He went to another, he said to him: My master
invites you.

He said to him: I have bought a farm; I am
going to collect the rent.

I shall not be able to come.

I ask to be excused.

The servant came back (and) said to his
master: Those whom you have invited to dinner
have asked to be excused.

The master said to his servant: Go out to the
roads, bring those whom you find, that they
may dine.

Traders and merchants [shall] not [enter] the
places of my Father.

(65) He said: A good man had a vineyard; he
leased it to tenants, that they might work in
it (and) he receive the fruits from them.

He sent his servant, that the tenants might
give him the fruits of the vineyard.

They seized his servant, beat him, (and) all
but killed him.

The servant went away (and) told his master.

His master said: Perhaps <they> did not know
<him>.

He sent another servant; the tenants beat the
other also.

Then the master sent his son.

He said: Perhaps they will have respect for my
son.

Those tenants, since they knew that he was the
heir of the vineyard, they seized him and
killed him.

He who has ears, let him hear.

Only God is good. Therefore, in this story the good man is God the Father. God had a vineyard, Earth.

So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God.

(66) Jesus said: Show me the stone which the

The Kingdom is built invertedly, with Jesus as the cornerstone, similar to Thomas 68.

Don’t reject Jesus. Don’t reject who Jesus is. Jesus is God. Jesus is God’s only begotten Son.

If you conform to a false image of Christ, then that cornerstone will crush you. For example, through heresy. Keep this canonical.

(67) Jesus said: He who knows the all, (but)
fails (to know) himself, misses everything.

I don’t know about what the original author meant with this saying.

However, you must come to know yourself, so you can receive Salvation from sin out of honesty. I can say to Jesus for example:

  • I know I am sinful for these reasons…
  • I know I am truthful in these ways…
  • Please save me.

(68) Jesus said: Blessed are you when you are

place where you have been persecuted.

Where a person is persecuted for being True (such as for example, for True love), God takes that situation and the ones that persecuted will not be able to find a place there.

It becomes a part of the Kingdom, which is exclusive only to the persecuted.

Likewise, if you are persecuted for following Christ, you will gain knowledge of Christ.

disciples. He said to them, I am not a
divider, am I?

Well it seems to be against Luke 12.

Luke 12
51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: 52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. 53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

unto us aforetime: 'Think ye I am come to cast

division. For from now on five will be in one
house; three will be divided against two, and
two against three,'--that is: Thou hast
brought the mystery of the baptisms into the
world, and it hath effected a division in the
bodies of the world, because it hath separated
the counterfeiting spirit and the body and the
destiny into one portion; the soul and the
power on the other hand it hath separated into
another portion;--that is: Three will be
against two, and two against three."

into the wall, that he might know his hand
would be strong (enough). Then he slew the
powerful man.

(105) Jesus said: He who knows father and mother will be called the son of a harlot.

I do not know the meaning of this yet.

gnostic According to Gnostic beliefs, Christ was conceived of as having two aspects:

  • a male half, identified as the son of God, and
  • a female half, called Sophia, who was venerated as the mother of the universe.

Gospel of Philip I’m leaning towards the Gospel of Philip description now.

Gospel of Philip
Truth is the mother, knowledge the father.

Do I really want too learn this stuff?

Book of Thomas the Contender (Jude Thomas, missionary to India)
To the fool, however, the good and bad are the same - indeed the wise man will be nourished by the truth and (Ps. 1:3) “will be like a tree growing by the meandering stream” - seeing that there are some who, although having wings, rush upon the visible things, things that are far from the truth.

The Truth nourishes and gives life, according to Gospel of Philip.

But how to ‘know’ the Mother, is it by a similar Bridal Chamber-like ceremony?

But how? By some kind of spiritual ceremony, probably.

out over the earth, and men do not see it.

(114) Simon Peter said to them: Let Mariham go
out from among us, for women are not worthy of
the life. Jesus said: Look, I will lead her
that I may make her male, in order that she
too may become a living spirit resembling you
males. For every woman who makes herself male
will enter into the kingdom of heaven.

In my dream I dreamt of a living spirit, and dead ones.

What is a living spirit? - as in the dream - one clothed in righteousness; Unique and unashamed. It’s a spirit united with Jesus’ spirit and has the Holy Spirit? - Yes. A true spirit, surely? - Yes.

I think it’s a spirit which recognises what is Truth (hears God’s voice) and the spiritual heart seeks after more of God’s voice.

That may include interpreting the Gospel of Thomas, for example, or reading from John.

Or reading from the Apostles - Reading Acts, for example, for learning on how to imitate Jesus and the Apostles; But ultimately to become a living spirit like them, by turning to face God.

Reality itself changes.

Continue to imbibe on Jesus’ words.

As I do that, my entire reality will start to change. I am becoming a living spirit, yes, and more alive each day.

It’s important to become more alive each day.

There is one archetype of the son of God, Christ. Androgynous male (angelic gender; Neither male nor female), holy and pure, solitary.

Likewise, every male that makes himself female, so that the male is no longer male and the female female.

See Saying 22. People have to become spiritual asexual, like the angels to enter the Kingdom.

That means, married to God via the alchemical union of the person with God.

We retain our physical bodies and gender, but spiritually we are neither male nor female after union with God.

The Archetype of Jesus

I think Jesus is more than just an archetype.

  • Jesus is definitely a person.

  • The Spirit of God definitely leads people into Truth.

  • All the elect/Apostles/true Israel are soul-knit with Jesus and conform to the image of Jesus (my understanding)

    • The true Israel includes all who will hearken to the call, I think, the ones with the hearing of Truth.
    • We are also soul-knit with each other and with Jesus through agape love/charity.
    • Purify your bodies and hearts by disentangling from the physical world; It’s so much easier after that!
      • Through following the 10 commandments from the heart and eating Jesus’ words with the heart!
  • As Paul says, “For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified”

Jesus, I believe is God incarnate - a personification of God, and that is very powerful. Jesus, the Truth, may soul-knit with us after we shake off our earthly garment. We put on in-corruption.

John 18:37
37 Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.”

Jesus is still here in the hearts of true believers. We also bear witness to the truth.
