Acts of John: 102
When he had spoken unto me these things, and others which I know not how to say as he would have me, he was taken up, no one of the multitudes having beheld him. And when I went down I laughed them all to scorn, inasmuch as he had told me the things which they have said concerning him: holding fast this one thing in myself, that the Lord contrived all things symbolically and by a dispensation toward men, for their conversion and salvation.
That is the symbolic nature of the crucifixion.
As we know the crucifixion according to the Bible was outside the gates of Jerusalem at a place called Golgotha, but let’s look at what the Bible says:
Revelation Chapter 11:8
And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
How does one explain that, the logic becomes to question this, is this a contradiction between the Bible saying Jesus was crucified at Golgotha or in Egypt we get clear instruction that the crucifixion is symbolic, he was crucified in Sodom, Egypt, Golgotha it is all symbolic.
So the idea becomes preposterous to take the Bible literally when stories have been given to us to bring forth the truth of our spiritual union with that that is the creation now Christianity is looking at a God that could not figure out another way to forgive humanity then by slaughtering people and killing people not after he gets done by crucifying this young man called Jesus, then planning to bring forth the great Armageddon, and this is the God you are supposed to love.
So if Jesus has said to take all of this symbolically let’s look at what it says in:
Mathew Chapter 27:32
And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
The symbol here is that Jesus is not the solitary figure in this sacrifice:
So what is this thing called Cyrene & Simon, let’s look at:
Mathew Chapter 16:24
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
That is what you have to do, to deny yourself is that to deny which is your lower self in meditation, take up that cross of crucifixion which crucifies the five senses and follow that which is the symbolic story of the sacrifice and allow the flesh to be crucified that you can rise and become one with God.
It is Apostle Paul that said in:
Galatians Chapter 2:20
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live: yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Paul dies daily he is crucified with Christ, so crucifixion is a personal, beautiful, but a spiritual thing, a symbolic thing.
Christians believe that Jesus was crucified and everything will be ok, the point is No that you do have to take up your cross, you have to follow Jesus, that does not mean you have to take up a burden, to deny yourself is to enter into meditation, take up that cross which impacts on those five senses, and allow that death of the lower flesh to take place in you so that you can raise up with Christ which is the resurrection to that which is called the Kingdom of God which is your higher self.
So let’s look at the verse:
Mathew Chapter 27:33
And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
If the crucifixion took place in Golgotha symbolically, then here we can see that the crucifixion takes place in the skull. In other words the mind, Golgotha is the symbolic place in the mind where you symbolically take up the cross and crucify yourself through meditation and self-examination and self-awareness, the crucifixion takes place in consciousness. It is a crucifixion of consciousness it is a personal thing, so they came to the place of the skull the skull is the place that houses the mind. And why must the crucifixion be in the mind, why does the crucifixion be in consciousness:
ROMANS Chapter 8:7
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
The mind is not subject to the law of God. But we have constructed traditions that point fingers at people and say this is wrong.
So the mind is where the crucifixion has to take place.
Mathew Chapter 27:34
They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
Let’s look at what is being said here, this drink is a drug it is a drug to quell the pain, the understanding here is that one must be totally alert self aware and completely under your own determination do this, there can be nothing dulling the senses, this is your choice, you can never reach the Kingdom of God by taking drugs. This is something that you want to do, you feel it is what you want to do, you have to do it totally alert, you need to be able to enter into yourself and say yes this is what I want to do otherwise it cannot be done.
Mathew Chapter 27:35
And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
This crucifixion, the birth of Christ, resurrections all has astrological meanings.
The meaning behind the Son of God being crucified in the Bible is related to astrology. On December the 21st the Sun in the sky will impact on the constellation called the Southern Cross the shortest day of the year, the crucifixion of God’s only Sun, it then stays in the bowels of the Earth on 22nd, 23rd, 24th , God’s only Sun is entombed for 3 days and 3 nights, it is called the Winter Solstice, and on December the 25th by the trajectory of the Earth God’s only Sun is born again, and it begins its upward arch, it is born between Horus and the Goat, between Capricorn and Sagittarius, that is why it is born in the stable. It is why the Magi who visited Jesus on his birth were Astrologers.
Let’s look at the crucifixion and the five wounds, hands (two off), feet (two off), side, crown.
When you take this crucifixion, when you take up the cross and are crucified in that meditation your hands don’t do the things they used to do, your feet don’t take you to the places they used to take you, your heart does not feel the way it used to feel, and your mind does not think like it used to think.
That is the five wounds.
Why does it have to be the five wounds?
What happened to my movement, my thoughts, my mind, what happened to them?
There was a star, and the star was in heaven, and that is you mind, the pure virgin holy mind created by God. The mind connects the five senses, the five senses are sight, smell, touch, taste & hearing, those five senses sat as alike because they were God directed at one time and the star had a name the star was called Lucifer (it means bright shining star) it is not a person, it is the five senses when they are under the control of the creative nature.
Then the lower five senses started to reach up:
Isaiah Chapter 14:13-14
For thou hast said in thine heart,
- I will ascend into heaven,
- I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:
- I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
- I will ascend above the heights of the clouds:
- I will be like the most High.
Is it per chance that the five I wills, and the five wounds, and the five senses, are the same?
So what happens then Lucifer falls, because the bright star has fallen out of Heaven and becomes Satan. Which are the lower five senses of the carnal mind.
When Samuel was going to slay the beast
1st Samuel CHAPTER 17:40
And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag which he had, even in a scrip: and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.
Why five stones, one he used to slay the beast, and when he stoned him he got him in the centre of the forehead, where did the destruction happen in the consciousness, he took the stone that the builders rejected which is the pineal stone. But why did he take five stones, because if he had taken four, maybe something he saw the beast would have overwhelmed him, maybe something he heard the beast would have overwhelmed him, so he had to take control over the five.
That is why the five wounds are so important in the crucifixion.
John CHAPTER 5:30
I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just: because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
Jesus himself said, he cannot do anything, he does not ask for worship, he never placed himself on the throne, he never asked anyone to idolise him, he clearly said “I can of mine own do nothing”.
Jesus indicate that you can do better than him not just be like him
So who is Jesus in you?
Let’s look at God’s name:
Exodus CHAPTER 3:13-14
And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you: and they shall say to me, what is his name? What shall I say unto them?
And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
So we have Jesus said I of my own self can do nothing
And Gods name is I AM.
Mathew CHAPTER 27:37
And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
Here we have the understanding of the glorification of the I AM, even though Jesus said of myself I can do nothing.
JOHN CHAPTER 19:21
Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews: but that he said, “I AM” King of the Jews. (Emphasis added)
There were two thieves crucified with Jesus
Mathew CHAPTER 27:38
Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
If we look at this from the symbolic perspective we comprehend there is the human aspect of the left and the right side which dies with the flesh to attain the Christ Consciousness.
We look at the conversation:
Luke CHAPTER 23:39
And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
One side the flesh is looking to itself for survival, this is the side the lower side looking for survival, save us.
Luke CHAPTER 23:40-41
But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
And we indeed justly: for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
It is the right side that rebukes him, stating of its higher self this has to happen. And Jesus says
Luke CHAPTER 23:43
And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Today you will be with me in Paradise, Paradise is the Rapture, the Nirvana, the ecstasy the orgasm of that that is the celestial wedding.
Revelation CHAPTER 2:7
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches: To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
So where is this Paradise?
Genesis CHAPTER 2:8
And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden: and there he put the man whom he had formed.
Whenever you look North, East is always on the RIGHT side
Genesis CHAPTER 2:9
And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food: the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
So we have a beautiful thing here, so the tree of life is also in Paradise, Jesus places the tree of life in Paradise that is eastward. In other words it is that the right say no I must do this the left side says No don’t do that, because you have to be in control, your ego needs to be in control your traditions need to be in control, and the right side says no let us go lets rise up into the Kingdom of God, let us go up to the place of Paradise and Jesus Christ says I will be with you in Paradise, and the Bible says it is located eastward, which is at the right side and when we allow this crucifixion to take place then we visit there in that Holy place with the Christ, eastward in the Holy Garden with God in the Kingdom of God.
