Words of Wisdom

People have made statements and nice comments that I should be on some kind of lecture circuit enlightening people.
I find it humbling that people would think that highly of me but the fact is, I haven't been asked to show my face at any Religious Convention and to lecture on True Spirituality and words of wisdom. Maybe some day in the future. Thank you for those who feel I should be out there telling the people the truth.

Compassion in the World: I find so many people hating each other over their religion that it is just sad to watch the violence that goes on in each city across the globe. People burning witches in New Guinea to the Saudi Arabians hunting down anyone who is Pagan and executing them.
What wonderful religions we have, to kill another person because they don't believe in the same thing as you. They act like animals in the name of God.

Prayer in schools: I hear people screaming about bringing back prayer into the schools. I agree with them, we should have prayer back in schools, but which prayer? Oh yeah, the Christians are at it again. You mean bring back only Christian prayer back in schools. If that is the case, then keep the prayers out of the schools because we are a melting pot of diversified religions and people and that means I don't need to be oppressed by any other religious belief and have to stand there hearing their prayer and not mine. But if ALL prayers are allowed back in schools, then I am all for it.

Our Founding Fathers and Religion: Many people say that we need to return to the religion of our founding fathers of this nation. I am Apache' and my founding fathers are Pagan and have been for centuries. The Native American Religion is Pagan and we founded this place long before anyone else. So, I will agree, lets go back to our founding fathers way of religious beliefs. Anything else is imported and not founded.

Speak English, Your in America: The official language in the USA is English. It is NOT a mandatory language that we must speak. So, If I choose to speak Klingon, then it is my choice as a US citizen to do so. I understand the racist underlined current going on and that is hateful racism. It doesn't take a rocket science degree to figure that one out.
If you scream that, your a racist! - "Yap wa' Hol" (one language is never enough in Klingon).
Press 1 for English: We are a melting pot of people and again, racism steps in when you scream why should we push one for English. Just press the damn button and move on. Wait a minute, I understand you, racism doesn't allow you to push that button without making sad hateful comments. You can't say, This is America-Speak English, because America also includes the Canadians and they Speak English and French Canadian. Mexico is also part of America and they speak Spanish and English. Just press 1 for English and don't make stupid remarks that makes you look stupid.

Putting the Christ back in Christmas: People with intelligence know that the word, "Christ" means anointed one. Christos is the correct word. So, If we put Christ back in Christmas, which Christ is it? Mithra? Horus? Perseus? Imana? Oh wait you mean Jesus? Well, he wasn't born on December 25th. The holiday season is called, "Saturnalia" which was used by the Romans for hundreds of years before Jesus came into the picture. But if I have to put the "Christ" back in Christmas, It will be Mithra and not Jesus. The name of Jesus is not Jesus Christ, rather it is Jesus THE Christ. So Mithra THE Christ it is. Merry Christmas!

When in Rome, act like Congress: When the Roman Senate hated their leader, they did nothing to help him. They waited and hoped that he would hang himself. Same thing with our Congress and President Obama.
When the President stepped into office in 2008, he was given a big basket full of Lemons. They said, fix our country. So Obama started making Lemonade. Oh no, that is not what the Congress/Senate wanted. They wanted fine wine to drink and not lemonade. One cannot make fine wine out of lemons. So blame him for not fixing the country.
Will someone in Congress give the man a big basket of grapes so that he can make some wine for Congress? I like lemonade personally.
It is like the thing about so many people calling him a Muslim, although he says he is Christian. What does it matter what he is? Oh wait a minute, Your religion doesn't go with his so, I will just bash the dude and try to impeach him. How stupid and hateful is that? Sounds like an excuse to hate someone for the sake of hate. Remember our Freedom of Religion? That means for him too. I personally like the man because he has managed to not only make lemonade, but a lemon pie and I like lemon pies. Personally, I would cut open a lemon and squirt it in the eyes of Congress. When in Rome!

The LGBT Factor: The country is changing and that means same sex marriage is on the rise. What is it to you if two men or two women marry each other. Love has no gender and boundaries. Wait, wait a minute, you want to impose your religious beliefs on this? The Bible says it is an Abomination. Oh really? Where does it say that? It was added in there recently that homosexuality is an abomination. Yes that's true, the Bible has been changed. Read the Original Kings James Version and nowhere does it say Homosexuality is an abomination. You meek little sheep who are willing to go to slaughter because of someone else's hate for homosexuals. What happen to your 11th commandment - Love one another!
Are there going to be people in your bed who are the same sex and married because it is legal? Are you going to bed with these people? What is it to you what they do. You don't like it. Maybe I don't like the shoes your wearing.

Abortion: This has the same flavor as the same sex marriage. It is not your place to impose your belief on other people who don't want to hear you. What I do with my body is not for you to say whether you like it or not. If there is religion involved? Even more so to stay away from me and mind your own business. Roe vs. Wade should have never been in court and never should it be a factor in anything we do as humans.

ZOMBIES of Cable and Satellite TV: I can't find a TV program worth watching that doesn't have someone killing off another. Is that what we have become - Zombies? I started watching, Sons of Anarchy when it first came out. Love the program but now it is season 5 and someone is being killed every 10 minutes in the program and they are dying in ways that I don't want to know. So, I stopped watching it! One program after another about killing and hurting people, channel after channel. I am stuck with Pawn Stars and Duck Dynasty. People have become Zombies and have this old Roman thirst for blood and guts but instead of an arena, it is in our living rooms on TV nightly.
When it comes to religion? Sleepy Hollow just came out and it deals with the Bible and Revelations and about death and dying. So, I switch the channel and now I find the complete opposite in "American Horror Story - The Coven." That program is all bout evil witches doing evil things to others with supernatural powers. WTF?
Thank goodness for NFL Football. At least no one is dying in the game and it is entertaining for me.
We have become ZOMBIES of TV. We sit there glued to the boob tube watching people kill each other and call that nightly entertainment.
The Nightly and local news: isn't any better either. It just lets us know who is molesting, raping and killing who daily.
National News: That is just the same as the local news except it deals with money laundering, scandals, greed, corruption and lemonade when everyone in Congress wants wine.

Sex outside of marriage is a Sin: Really? Why? Don't tell me because it is in a book. You tell me why it is a sin. We are sexual people and sex and sexuality is a good positive feeling, so why ban it unless your married? Because it is designed for procreation only? Nonsense!
Water is for bathing and cooking. Why can't we also play in the water. We have water sports and so many people have wave runners or boats and they go fishing, water skiing, and even scuba diving. It is fun and it is a good feeling. So is sex! Yes, it is designed for procreating but it can be fun in other sexual areas too. Just use caution when doing it like you would anything else that is exciting and fun. But to call it a sin and wrong? Seriously? What idiot wrote that? Oh yeah, never mind.

The Dalai Lama: For years and years I have respected and even to the point revered his words of wisdom. Then he goes against same sex marriage and homosexuals. Dude, you blew it with me. You let your wisdom down and I caught it. Practice what you preach because if I remember right, your not even in your own country. You been oppressed by others. Someone needs to remind him of his true status of an exiled Buddhist monk because of his beliefs.

The End of the World: I really don't feel that the end of the world as we know it will happen due to nuclear bombs or nuclear missiles going off all over the world.
I honestly believe that a major natural disaster will strike mankind and thin out the population by the billions.
One such disaster waiting is the volcanoe - Krakatoa, East of Java in Indonesia. That went off in 1883 and was considered the most deadly in modern history. The volcanoe vanished under the seas but in the mid 1960's, it rose out of the ocean again. Today it is 6oo feet above sea level and grumbling like no tomorrow. This Volcanoe will create a nuclear winter for mankind and it will be deadly. If this eruption happens and it rattles the earth enough, it could trigger the mega-volcanoe in Yellowstone, Wyoming to erupt. But Krakatoa all by itself will kill billions of people and life will change dramatically for us all.

Stop acting like little children: You have the middle east and how they are so backwards that they barely understand humanity. They walk around saying that all infidels need to die. They treat women so badly that they have to wear black sheets over their bodies with slits on their eyes so they don't walk into walls.
The West isn't much better because the value for life has dropped dramatically. We in the 1st western world are supposed to be leaders and example setters. Yet, everyone blames each other for nothing getting done. The race game kicks in with, the whites blaming the blacks and the black blaming the browns and the browns blaming the Yellow and the reds and they are blaming the Muslims and they blame the Christians who want to blame the Pagans. Blame, blame and blame on someone else and never taking responsibility or being accountable for one's actions is moronic and childish.
Like little children in Congress who gets nothing done because the alleged Muslim President who happens to be black is not to their liking. We all suffer from stupidity!

When this formula takes place, it creates judgemental people who impose themselves on others either thinking they are righteous or under the banner of their God. People find justifiable killing of others under this stupid heading. Our history is filled with this type of thinking. I meet people all the time who are more than willing to help me, but then they say, "What's in it for me?" When you think, "If I help another, will it get me closer to God?" is when it puts you farther from him.
You expect a brownie button for your good deed and when you think of that is when it doesn't happen. You have to give and help out of your heart and not for Spiritual brownie points to make you LOOK better in front of God.

Do you understand your purpose here on earth? Did you learn greed? Did you learn to take and take and not give back? Did you learn how to hurt people and not care? Did you learn how to shoot a gun at someone? Did you learn how to bash a weaker woman into submission? Did you learn how to judge others? Did you learn to laugh at others mistakes? Did you learn how to make them feel bad? Did you learn how to make fun of those who are poor and not wearing the same stylish clothes as you? Did you learn to bash those of another religion and even wish them dead?

Well if you learned all of those things, then I guess there is nothing else to learn.

In Love and Light,

Is Jesus and The Father = ONE GOD? Are you Sinning?

If there is a Hell, you will find most Christians there after life here on earth wondering what the hell happened.

I wrote this article some time ago but for some reason I had accidentally deleted it from my blog site here.
I honestly believe that just about every Christian on this planet is committing a Blasphemous Sin in worshipping Jesus and calling him God! From the Bible:

And God spoke all these words:

“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
“You shall have no other gods before me.
“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
By making Jesus God, you fall into the Commandment sin praying to a false god.

Let me give you an example of what this article contains: “I am the Creator and my son is the creation. I give my son full power under my authority on earth to represent me. The son is not me and I am not him, but with our combine understanding we are one.  I am that I am and he is who he is. Together we are one but I am the creator and my son is the creation. Through him you will know me because we are one. He sits on the right side of my throne. His name is, “Yeshua” (Jesus). Many will call my name, “Yahweh.” (God). I am “Yahweh” and he is, “Yeshua.”
Now if I left it at that and I was one of the greatest theologians in modern day, you might and I say that lightly, you might believe what I said that, God and Jesus are two separate beings. But people of intelligence are stubborn when it comes to going against their own belief. Religious dogma gets in the way quickly and they try to turn it around stating that I am some left wing nut with no merit and that I don’t know what I am talking about. So, with that in mind, it is best to confirm and affirm what I just said in the first paragraph by using scripture. Understand that Judaism claims the separation and Christianity does not. Who is right? I believe this article will clear that up.
Note: some of the text is been pre-written and I put my own insertions and concurrence with the original writer to give a continuity of the overall text article.

Someone may argue, "But, didn’t Jesus say that He and his Father were one?
Yes, Jesus did say that. But what did He mean by it? Did He mean that 1+1=1? Did He mean "one" in number, or "one" in spirit and purpose? Obviously, He meant that they were united in purpose and spirit. Here, again, our religious brethren must resist the temptation to assign Christ’s statements to some nonsensical body of mystical sayings.

God’s Word directs us to, "Come now, and let us reason together, saith Yahweh…" (Isaiah 1:18). Also, remember “Toland’s” sage advice: "Reserve judgment on whatever is uncertain and assent only to clear precepts." Mysticism and mystery have no place whatsoever in a person’s belief structure. You cannot honestly build a belief structure on a mystery. An honest man must remain silent concerning a mystery, for the fact that it is a mystery to him proves that he possesses no intelligent data on the subject.
Building on a mystery is like shooting in the dark. Odds are greater than a million to one against you ever hitting the target which you cannot see. Ministers who build on mystery are shooting in the dark, and usually lying.
Jesus claimed that He and his Father were one. To turn this alleged mystery into common sense, we only have to read some related scriptures.

First, let’s examine the passage in question by reading it in context.
John chapter 10:
My Father, which gave them to me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.
"There!" they say, "See! He and his Father are ONE! Jesus and Yahweh is the same person!" But, is that really what it says? In light of the verse preceding it, would it be consistent?
Verse 29; says that the Father gave disciples to Jesus. Jesus didn’t give them to himself. Remember, give and take requires two parties: the giver, and the taker. Also, Jesus says that Yahweh is GREATER than all.
Reason and common sense must prevail lest we find ourselves lost. In the incapacitated mind of the non believer, two can equal one, and three can equal one. In fact, multiple gods can simultaneously be one god. Two, three, or 10,000 gods can equal ONE god – as in Hinduism. This can happen in their minds because their brains have been shoved into neutral. Their minds no longer seek logical answers.
Christians are supposed to have sound minds. What then? Are we to believe that Jesus was a dual god, like the Roman god Janus? Was He saying that two equals one? No, of course not! He was simply using a common form of expression that makes good sense unless taken out of context. You can find such common expressions throughout the Bible.

For instance, John 17:
11 .…Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we.
21. That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us…
22. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them: that they may be one, even as we are one:
In this case, the pagan might envision Yahweh, Jesus, and the disciples ALL part of one big god, which is not the case.

Matthew 19:
…Have you not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain (two) shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh
One flesh? Literally? Of course not! That’s absurd.
Galatians 3:
For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither, male or female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Obviously, being "one" with someone has no bearing on number. Therefore, it signifies something other than quantity. Jesus was not claiming some kind of mystical identification as Yahweh, any more than He was suggesting that all his disciples were only one person. He only meant that they were one in purpose and authority. Use common sense and don’t complex the content of what Jesus stated over and over throughout the New Testament concerning his father.

Continuing in John 10:
Then the Judeans took up stones again to stone him (Jesus). Jesus answered them, Many good works have I showed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Judeans answered him, saying, “For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.”
Now here we have an interesting statement. The Judeans were accusing Jesus of the same thing the churches today accuse Him of – namely, that He claimed to be God. The difference is that today’s churches like it, and the Judeans hated it.
Remember, Jesus didn’t claim to be Yahweh; He claimed to be "one" with him – an expression meaning to share the same purpose or motivation. He then goes on to address the term "god" itself. Jesus answered them:
…Is it not written in your law (in Psalms 82:6), I (Yahweh) said, Ye are gods?
Who "are gods?" Yahweh originally said that to Israelites. Jesus was reminding the Judeans that Yahweh had called their ancestors "gods." How could just mortal men be "gods"?
If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; ay ye of him (Jesus), whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
Obviously, the Israelites were not supernatural gods. They were just "elohim" (powerful ones) in their day. Jesus pointed out that if Yahweh had called their ancestors "gods," then it certainly wasn’t blasphemy for Him to claim to be the Son of God. Keep in mind that the Priest never stoned him because most caught on to what Jesus meant.

If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him (two persons; the Son was motivated by the Father).
If those Judeans had been listening they would have heard the meaning of "being one" with someone. They would have also learned what the word "god" ("elohim" in Hebrew; "theos" in Greek) really meant. But, most of the Pharisees weren’t listening, and neither are the churches today.
Besides, in several clear passages, Jesus declares that He and Yahweh, together, equal TWO in number.

John 8:
15. Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. It is also written in your law, that the testimony of TWO men is true. I am one that bear witness of myself, AND the Father that sent me beareth witness of me (two witnesses). Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

42. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Jesus answered, If I honor myself, my honor is nothing: it is my Father that honoreth me…
Someone may still wonder, "With all these scriptures showing clearly that Jesus and Yahweh are not the same, how is it, then, that the idea came to be so wide-spread? And how is it that so many people think the Bible actually teaches it? Why is it such a popular doctrine if it’s so clearly wrong?"

Well, there are yet several scriptures that we haven’t addressed. Also, the English versions of the Bible have been translated (or rather miss-translated) to make certain scriptures appear to say, at least on the face of them, that Yahweh himself became a flesh-and-blood of man. Of course, it is easier to accept them that way if you are already bias. But, at this point we must admit that someone who reads only the English versions of the Bible could feasibly be led into that error unknowingly.

Now, let’s start with John 17:
And this is eonian life; that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. ("eonian life" = the spiritual awakening given during this New Covenant age).
That "eonian life" is described as an ability to "know the only true God (Yahweh), AND Jesus Christ, whom Yahweh sent." Now, keep that point squarely in your mind.
I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. (KJV)
On the face of this one, it may appear to be saying that Jesus lived WITH (along side) Yahweh before the earth was created. However, if that were the case, this verse would also do great violence to the theory that Jesus and Yahweh are one and the same. It would be saying that Jesus and Yahweh were two beings.
But, as we unweave the confusion of this verse, and translate it correctly, we see its actual meaning.

5. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with (in addition to) your glory which I am sharing with you before (in front of) the world. (Corrected; according to the Greek).
What Yahweh had already accomplished through Jesus had been glorious. Now, Jesus was praying for a greater glory to be accomplished in his death and rising to immortality.
This verse does not say what the KJV translators insinuated. When you read it correctly, it fits with the text much better.

What did Jesus say?
Yahweh was glorified in Jesus as a witness before all the world. Jesus had completed the work that He, as a mortal, was created to do, and Jesus was now looking forward to a greater glory (i.e. the expected glory of being raised to immortal life and ascending the throne).
We are a word-controlled people. People can be changed just by changing the meanings of words they use. If we allow the words to be controlled, then we will be controlled.
The Bible is a very old document. Even the English translation of the Bible is very old. To understand this old document we must be very careful that we do not misuse its words. We can’t ignore them, nor can we assume that others have been honest with them. The WORDS are more important than gold! We should be at least as protective and responsible over these words of life as we would that much gold. This requires more than just casual reading from one of the many English versions.
In this case, just as in many others, the sensible and logical conclusion is the right one, and we can dispense with the so-called mystery.

John 1:
No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
Jesus declared Yahweh to men. But, NO MAN has seen Yahweh. Now, don’t miss this important point.
Has any man seen Jesus? Yes, of course.
Has any man seen Yahweh? No!
What, then, was Jesus? Was He Yahweh? No, because men saw Jesus.
What was He then? John says He was THE DECLARATION OF GOD (i.e. the LOGOS)!
John 17:
I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
Jesus refers to Yahweh as "Thee" and "Thou" – obviously not referring to himself. Jesus says He had manifested the Father’s name (i.e. He displayed Yahweh’s "name"; his "authority"). His Father gave Him authority to represent Him. The representative cannot be the one being represented!

The next passage in question is John 14:
6. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
We just read that no one had seen the Father. Is this a contradiction?
If we accept the premise that Jesus does not contradict himself, then He must be telling us something else.
Philip saith unto him, Lord show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet has thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?
Is Jesus contradicting himself? Is He saying that men really HAVE seen Yahweh?
Now understand, I’m saying that we can’t throw out any of these scriptures. If there appears to be a contradiction, we must have enough faith in God’s Word to believe that the error comes from man – not from Jesus. We must believe that the scriptures make sense when we don’t misuse them. Therefore, contradictions come from erroneous translations and/or interpretations – not from Jesus, nor the inspired Word of God. So, we only need to find and correct the error that men have inserted. Furthermore, to interpret the scriptures correctly, we should read them in context which is very important when reading the bible. So, let’s see what else is said in this passage.

Notice verse 10:
Believest thou not that I am in the Father, …
Now wait a minute! Which is it? Is He the Father? Or is He IN the Father? Obviously, being "in the Father" is not the same as "being the Father." If Jesus WAS the Father, wouldn’t he have said "I AM THE FATHER" rather than saying "I am IN the Father"? If He was the Father, He missed a perfect opportunity to clearly tell them who He was.
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.

When He spoke of the Father He spoke NOT OF HIMSELF! That’s what verse ten says! Now, that is not hard to understand.
Again, in John 7, Jesus makes a distinction between himself and Yahweh:
My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
Jesus’ doctrine was not his! What did He mean by that? If Jesus was Yahweh, then He would have been saying that the doctrine was not Yahweh’s! Whose, then, would it have been? Not Jesus’! Not Yahweh’s! Could it have been, perhaps, Baal’s doctrine; or maybe the serpent’s doctrine? Whose? Where might this impossible scenario take them? I’ll tell you where it will lead the gullible. It’ll lead them right into Judeo-Christianity (Jewish Christianity).
However, if Jesus was Yahweh’s Son, then it all makes perfect sense. The Son got his doctrine from the Father. The works and the words that flowed from Jesus were manifested words and works of Yahweh. They were done in the Father’s name. 

They "declared" Yahweh unto the world. They were the works and the words of the Father – manifested through Jesus. That’s not to say that Jesus was the Father. Keep that straight! The Father was in Jesus! Remember, no one has seen God. But, men did see Jesus. Jesus was visible. They could touch Him. Many people saw Jesus. But, the Father is invisible to man.
When Philip looked upon Jesus, he was looking at AN IMAGE of the Father. An image…not in the physical sense, but in the spiritual sense. Yahweh cannot be described in the physical sense because He is not physical.
If God looked physically like Jesus, then men could have looked upon Yahweh just as easily as they looked upon Jesus. But they couldn’t! Jesus was the image of Yahweh in greater, different ways than physical ways. Just remember: an image of a thing is not the thing itself. Jesus was the image – not the Father himself.

Next, Hebrews 1:
God, who at sundry times and in diverse manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, through whom he also arranged the ages. Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Jesus was "the express image" of his Father. An image of a thing is not the thing itself. It is a reflection of the thing itself. Jesus reflected Yahweh.
II Corinthians 4:
3. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this age hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. (Jesus = image).

Colossians 1:
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light. Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son. In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation (Invisible means incapable of being seen by the eye. Jesus is the visible image of the invisible God). For in him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created through (on account of) him, and for him:
Again, the image of a thing is NOT the thing itself.
Also, we must remember that Adam shared the same status – that of being the image of God. For that matter, WE TOO share that status, as sons of God. Obviously, "being in the image of God" does not equate to "being God."
"All things created" (i.e. this universe, if you will) were created ultimately for the Son who was to inherit all things. Yahweh created all things for Jesus so the Son would inherit all things.

Now read verse 17:
And he is preeminent in all things (referring to status, not time), and in him all things consist. And He is the head of the body who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;
It pleased the Father to place all fullness in the person of Jesus. Jesus was like a vessel filled to the very top. But you see, no matter how great an imagination you may have, you cannot imagine a vessel large enough to contain all of Yahweh. Jesus could not contain Him; Yahweh cannot be limited and contained in a vessel. The Father is limitless and un-containable. Yet, all fullness was in Jesus.

Chapter 2:
For in him (Jesus) dwelleth all the fullness of Godship bodily (not "Godhead").
I Kings 8:27; II Chronicles 6:18
But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? Behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!
If heaven and earth cannot contain Yahweh, then neither can the mortal body of a man. Jesus was filled with Godship. However, the contents of a vessel is not the vessel itself. Jesus was the vessel and the contents was of the godship of the Father. The word, "Godhead," indicating a plurality of gods as rendered by the KJV translators, is another misnomer – possibly a prejudice held over from the pagan Roman concept of a "Forum of gods."
In I Timothy 3, we find a related scripture which is often quoted to support the idea of a mysterious "Godhead." I quote it below, correctly from the Greek:
And without question, great is the wonder of godliness which (The KJV wrongly inserts "God" here) was manifest in the flesh, justified in spirit, witnessed by messengers, preached in nations, believed in the world and received in glory."
This is not talking about God, or a so-called "godhead." It is talking about "godliness" or "holiness." Godliness was manifest in the flesh. The KJV translators wrongly inserted "God" in the place of "which." They completely perverted the meaning of this scripture. Translational anomalies like this only serve to further confuse people. Translators should be more responsible.

What is "The mystery (wonder) of godliness?" It is the miracle of a man receiving inspiration from God. The implanted desire to be godly is unnatural to man. It is a miracle when God causes a man to desire godliness. This miracle, or "mystery," is manifest in flesh when a man’s nature is turned – from depravity, to godliness. In 2 Peter 1:3-4 we are told that we acquire the "divine nature" (godliness) through gaining "the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue.
This is the wonder of godliness among men.
Just remember these basic premises:
An image of a thing is not the thing itself.
The contents of a vessel is not the vessel itself.
A "full" vessel shows the limit of the vessel – not the limit of that which fills the vessel.
The Creator is not the creation.
The Infinite is not finite.
The Eternal does not cease to exist.
The Father is not the Son.


Yahweh’s Son, Jesus – the Inheritor – had authority, in the name of the Father, over his inheritance.

Angels (messengers) also communicated Yahweh’s word to men. They spoke in Yahweh’s name, too. But the churches admit that angels are not Yahweh. They were expressions of Yahweh, to be sure. They spoke the word of Yahweh. They commanded performance with the authority of Yahweh. They issued Yahweh’s commands as if they were coming from Yahweh himself. BUT THEY WERE THE MESSAGE CARRIERS – NOT THE MESSAGE SENDER! That is an important difference. Jesus, also, spoke for Yahweh. He was the Message itself in flesh form. But let’s not confuse the message (Jesus) with the message sender (Yahweh).
We see more of this direct representation of Yahweh in Revelation 21:
9. And there came unto me one of the seven angels
The messenger (angel) was talking to John. The conversation carries over into chapter 22:
6. And he (the messenger) said unto me (John), These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of
the holy prophets sent his angel to show unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
Behold, come quickly: (Who comes quickly? This messenger? NO. Yahweh! Yahweh comes quickly. But the messenger is the one saying "I come quickly"): blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the messenger (angel) which showed me these things. Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the saying of this book: worship God.

Here’s a fellow servant, saying "I come quickly"! John thought, "This must be God himself." So he fell down to worship before Him and the messenger says, "No, I’m not God – I am the messenger of God."
John misunderstood. He made an error. In fact, John’s error of assuming the angel to be Yahweh is similar to the churches’ error of assuming that Jesus is Yahweh. However, both were speaking for Yahweh.

The book of Revelation was a communication delivered to John by a messenger sent by Jesus (Revelation 22:16), and by the Father (Revelation 21:6). The messenger spoke for both Jesus and his Father – as if they, themselves, were actually speaking. In that capacity, the messenger would frequently use phrases like: "I am the Alpha and Omega," or "I am the first and the last." These phrases are idiomatic expressions, used in both the old and new scriptures, to mean "I am without peer"; "I am above all."
In the book of Revelation, where this messenger speaks for Jesus, who in turn speaks for Yahweh, some of the expressions can almost appear to be equating Jesus with Yahweh. But they aren’t. The messenger speaks for Jesus, but he isn’t Jesus. He also speaks for Yahweh, but he isn’t Yahweh. He speaks for them both, together.
When he says, "I am the Alpha and Omega," he is speaking for Yahweh, who authorized him to send the messenger, who in turn, gives it to John.

Now look at John 8:
Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
This verse is sometimes used to suggest that Jesus was Yahweh – at the time of Abraham. But, again, upon fair consideration, we find that it does not say that. In the first place, it did not project Jesus back in time. It projects Abraham forward in time – to Jesus’ day. We find help to understand this by looking at Hebrews 11.
Here, we read of faithful Abraham. In verse 8 it says, "By faith Abraham" – and then it goes on to explain how Abraham was called out into a new land. In verse 9 it starts: "By faith he sojourned in the land of promise…"
Abraham acted upon faith. He is known as "the father of the faithful." Notice the definition of faith as it is stated in verse one:
Now faith is assurance of things expected; contemplation of things not in sight (corrected according to the Greek text).

Also, Genesis 15:
And he (Yahweh in a vision) brought him (Abram) forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. And he believed in Yahweh; and he counted it to him for righteousness.
By faith, Abraham was assured of things that he expected, and he contemplated things that he hadn’t personally seen. But Abraham’s faith was not blind! He believed the promise of his God whom he knew, by personal experience, to be capable of fulfilling promises and doing the impossible.

In II Corinthians 5:7, we learn that the godly "walk by faith, not by sight." Abraham didn’t need to physically experience "Jesus’ day" in order to "see" it. Faithful Abraham saw Jesus’ day – not by sight, but he saw it by faith. By the same token, verse 10 says: "For he (Abraham) looked for a city which had foundations, whose builder and maker is God." This was the city of God: New Jerusalem. By faith, Abraham saw that city that was not yet built. In the same way, Abraham looked forward by faith and saw the day of Jesus.
Also, in Romans 4:17, Paul speaks of Abraham’s faith in that God who "calls those things which don’t exist as though they exist." In other words, through faith God caused Abraham to see future things that were not yet physically in existence.
Continuing in John 8, we find another stumbling block:
Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. (KJV)
It is sometimes claimed that Jesus used the term "I am" to show that He was Yahweh and therefore existed before the time of Abraham. They point to Exodus 3:14, where Yahweh said his name was "I am that I am" (or more correctly, "I am the one who exists") and claim that the terms are synonymous. Once again, however, careful and fair analysis shows otherwise.
As always, we must read scripture in context. Let’s go back and read from verse 50 to see how Jesus leads up to this statement:
And I seek not mine own glory: there is one (another one) that seeketh and judgeth.
He sought not his own glory, but rather Yahweh’s – a strange statement if Jesus was Yahweh.
Also, verse 54:
Jesus answered, If I honor myself, my honor is nothing: it is my Father that honoreth me;…

Jesus kept shunning the honor and insisting that it be placed where it belonged – back with the Father, and away from himself.
Would it make sense in the earlier parts of the chapter to say, "I don’t deserve the honor; my Father deserves the honor!" and then turn around in verse 58 and say, "I am the one who deserves all of the honor?" No! Of course not!
Furthermore, the semantics involved prove that the term "I am" could not have meant what some claim. Look at the sentence structure. If "I am" = Yahweh, the verse would read:
…before Abraham was, Yahweh.
As you can see, it doesn’t work. Jesus did not say, "Before Abraham was, I was the "I am. In order to match their claim, the phrase would need more words.
Furthermore, the phrase in Exodus does not match the one in John when read from the Greek. This clearly indicates that they have different meanings. John 8:58 reads:
…before Abraham, I am (EGO EMI) to become (GENESTHAI) (i.e. "I am to become greater than Abraham").
Here, notice that the verb is not "was" (past tense), but rather "to be" or "to become" (infinitive tense). Also, "to become" fits with "I am" – not with "Abraham" as the churches claim. It reads, "…I am to become," not "before Abraham to become…."
Jesus was saying "I am to be…" in the same sense as you or I would say "I am to go," or "I am to stay."

The Greek construction bears this out. Jesus says "EGO EMI" (I am). Now, compare the Greek construction of Exodus 3:14 as taken from the Septuagint Greek Old Testament.
And God spoke to Moses, saying EGO EMI HA ON (I am the one existing); and he said, Thus shall ye say to the children of IsraelHA ON (the one existing) has sent me to you.
According to Greek usage, if Jesus had wanted to say that He was "THE EXISTING ONE," He would not have said "EGO EMI." He would have said "HA ON."
What, then, was Jesus saying in verse 58? He was stating that He had a position of even greater importance than Abraham.
…before Abraham (in priority, or rank), I am to be.
Jesus is greater than Abraham. In his ministry, his sacrifice and his rising from the dead – in all that He did, He was the greatest of Yahweh’s creation.

In conclusion: Now again comes the task of un-brain washing the billions who believe that Jesus and Yahweh are the same beings. When one reads the original Hebrew and Greek Bible which; is where the King James Version is translated. Words were changed and/or miss-translated and people start to believe otherwise words that were never written or that have different meanings. Understand that, the Judeans of that biblical time were ready to stone Jesus for claiming he was God himself. Jesus then explained that he was NOT God and through him God speaks. They then dropped the stones and Jesus was never stoned to death. The churches today say what the Judeans were ready to stone him for claiming he was God. The Judeans hate it when they say Jesus (Yeshua) is, “Yahweh” (God). If one never reads the Hebrew bible or the Greek bible, then one would never know or understand why the Christians believe one way and the Judeans another way. If we are to take the original text from the Hebrew and Greek bible and translate it to English, then it should be done properly and not to fit one’s own religious belief. Jesus said it plainly and we ALL should hear his word. That he is NOT “Yahweh” (God) and he said so.
Way too many cults do this to fit their own agenda and warp the actual written word of God and his son Jesus.

The written word of God and Jesus are inerrant and infallible and It only becomes fallible if someone miss-reads the original text and inserts their own belief and over time billions believe it to be the truth. I give you the truth as it was originally written. Now take it to heart or wash it away. The truth has been said. If you are Christian, you are no longer ignorant to the fact presented to you here. Pray to Jesus as your God and you break the Commandment laws within the ten commandments. You are no longer innocent to the facts laid out here for you.
