Paper 169. Last Teaching at Pella

Monday March 6, A.D. 30

LATE on Monday evening, March 6, Jesus and the ten apostles arrived at the Pella camp. This was the last week of Jesus' sojourn there, and he was very active in teaching the multitude and instructing the apostles. He preached every afternoon to the crowds and each night answered questions for the apostles and certain of the more advanced disciples residing at the camp.

Word regarding the resurrection of Lazarus had reached the encampment two days before the Master's arrival, and the entire assembly was agog. Not since the feeding of the five thousand had anything occurred which so aroused the imagination of the people. And thus it was at the very height of the second phase of the public ministry of the kingdom that Jesus planned to teach this one short week at Pella and then to begin the tour of southern Perea which led right up to the final and tragic experiences of the last week in Jerusalem.

The Pharisees and the chief priests had begun to formulate their charges and to crystallize their accusations. They objected to the Master's teachings on these grounds:

1. He is a friend of publicans and sinners; he receives the ungodly and even eats with them.

2. He is a blasphemer; he talks about God as being his Father and thinks he is equal with God.

3. He is a lawbreaker. He heals disease on the Sabbath and in many other ways flouts the sacred law of Israel.

4. He is in league with devils. He works wonders and does seeming miracles by the power of Beelzebub, the prince of devils.

3. The Rich Man and the Beggar

When the meeting became too noisy, Simon Peter, standing up, took charge, saying: "Men and brethren, it is not seemly thus to dispute among yourselves. The Master has spoken, and you do well to ponder his words. And this is no new doctrine which he proclaimed to you. Have you not also heard the allegory of the Nazarites concerning the rich man and the beggar? Some of us heard John the Baptist thunder this parable of warning to those who love riches and covet dishonest wealth. And while this olden parable is not according to the gospel we preach, you would all do well to heed its lessons until such a time as you comprehend the new light of the kingdom of heaven. The story as John told it was like this:

"There was a certain rich man named Dives, who, being clothed in purple and fine linen, lived in mirth and splendor every day. And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, who was laid at this rich man's gate, covered with sores and desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table; yes, even the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass that the beggar died and was carried away by the angels to rest in Abraham's bosom. And then, presently, this rich man also died and was buried with great pomp and regal splendor. When the rich man departed from this world, he waked up in Hades, and finding himself in torment, he lifted up his eyes and beheld Abraham afar off and Lazarus in his bosom. And then Dives cried aloud: 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me and send over Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water to cool my tongue, for I am in great anguish because of my punishment.' And then Abraham replied: 'My son, you should remember that in your lifetime you enjoyed the good things while Lazarus in like manner suffered the evil. But now all this is changed, seeing that Lazarus is comforted while you are tormented. And besides, between us and you there is a great gulf so that we cannot go to you, neither can you come over to us.' Then said Dives to Abraham: 'I pray you send Lazarus back to my father's house, inasmuch as I have five brothers, that he may so testify as to prevent my brothers from coming to this place of torment.' But Abraham said: 'My son, they have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.' And then answered Dives: 'No, No, Father Abraham! but if one go to them from the dead, they wilPost too long.

4. The Father and His Kingdom

Jesus always had trouble trying to explain to the apostles that, while they proclaimed the establishment of the kingdom of God, the Father in heaven was not a king. At the time Jesus lived on earth and taught in the flesh, the people of Urantia knew mostly of kings and emperors in the governments of the nations, and the Jews had long contemplated the coming of the kingdom of God. For these and other reasons, the Master thought best to designate the spiritual brotherhood of man as the kingdom of heaven and the spirit head of this brotherhood as the Father in heaven. Never did Jesus refer to his Father as a king. In his intimate talks with the apostles he always referred to himself as the Son of Man and as their elder brother. He depicted all his followers as servants of mankind and messengers of the gospel of the kingdom.

Jesus never gave his apostles a systematic lesson concerning the personality and attributes of the Father in heaven. He never asked men to believe in his Father; he took it for granted they did. Jesus never belittled himself by offering arguments in proof of the reality of the Father. His teaching regarding the Father all centered in the declaration that he and the Father are one; that he who has seen the Son has seen the Father; that the Father, like the Son, knows all things; that only the Son really knows the Father, and he to whom the Son will reveal him; that he who knows the Son knows also the Father; and that the Father sent him into the world to reveal their combined natures and to show forth their conjoint work. He never made other pronouncements about his Father except to the woman of Samaria at Jacob's well, when he declared, "God is spirit."

You learn about God from Jesus by observing the divinity of his life, not by depending on his teachings. From the life of the Master you may each assimilate that concept of God which represents the measure of your capacity to perceive realities spiritual and divine, truths real and eternal. The finite can never hope to comprehend the Infinite except as the Infinite was focalized in the time-space personality of the finite experience of the human life of Jesus of Nazareth.

Jesus well knew that God can be known only by the realities of experience; never can he be understood by the mere teaching of the mind. Jesus taught his apostles that, while they never could fully understand God, they could most certainly know him, even as they had known the Son of Man. You can know God, not by understanding what Jesus said, but by knowing what Jesus was. Jesus was a revelation of God.

Except when quoting the Hebrew scriptures, Jesus referred to Deity by only two names: God and Father. And when the Master made reference to his Father as God, he usually employed the Hebrew word signifying the plural God (the Trinity) and not the word Yahweh, which stood for the progressive conception of the tribal God of the Jews.

Jesus never called the Father a king, and he very much regretted that the Jewish hope for a restored kingdom and John's proclamation of a coming kingdom made it necessary for him to denominate his proposed spiritual brotherhood the kingdom of heaven. With the one exception—the declaration that "God is spirit"—Jesus never referred to Deity in any manner other than in terms descriptive of his own personal relationship with the First Source and Center of Paradise.

Jesus employed the word God to designate the idea of Deity and the word Father to designate the experience of knowing God. When the word Father is employed to denote God, it should be understood in its largest possible meaning. The word God cannot be defined and therefore stands for the infinite concept of the Father, while the term Father, being capable of partial definition, may be employed to represent the human concept of the divine Father as he is associated with man during the course of mortal existence.

Although Jesus revealed the true nature of the heavenly Father in his earth life, he taught little about him. In fact, he taught only two things: that God in himself is spirit, and that, in all matters of relationship with his creatures, he is a Father. On this evening Jesus made the final pronouncement of his relationship with God when he declared: "I have come out from the Father, and I have come into the world; again, I will leave the world and go to the Father."

But mark you! never did Jesus say, "Whoso has heard me has heard God." But he did say, "He who has seen me has seen the Father." To hear Jesus' teaching is not equivalent to knowing God, but to see Jesus is an experience which in itself is a revelation of the Father to the soul. The God of universes rules the far-flung creation, but it is the Father in heaven who sends forth his spirit to dwell within your minds.

Jesus is the spiritual lens in human likeness which makes visible to the material creature Him who is invisible. He is your elder brother who, in the flesh, makes known to you a Being of infinite attributes whom not even the celestial hosts can presume fully to understand. But all of this must consist in the personal experience of the individual believer. God who is spirit can be known only as a spiritual experience. God can be revealed to the finite sons of the material worlds, by the divine Son of the spiritual realms, only as a Father. You can know the Eternal as a Father; you can worship him as the God of universes, the infinite Creator of all existences.

Set your mind at work to solve its problems; teach your intellect to work for you; refuse longer to be dominated by fear like an unthinking animal. Your mind should be your courageous ally in the solution of your life problems rather than your being, as you have been, its abject fear-slave and the bond servant of depression and defeat. But most valuable of all, your potential of real achievement is the spirit which lives within you, and which will stimulate and inspire your mind to control itself and activate the body if you will release it from the fetters of fear and thus enable your spiritual nature to begin your deliverance from the evils of inaction by the power-presence of living faith.

Wow Uranon I never though of Inaction as an Evil. However, it makes sense. If evil is the choice of Not doing Gods will, then inaction is Evil.

There are many ways of looking at sin, but from the universe philosophic viewpoint sin is the attitude of a personality who is knowingly resisting cosmic reality. Error might be regarded as a misconception or distortion of reality. Evil is a partial realization of, or maladjustment to, universe realities. But sin is a purposeful resistance to divine reality—a conscious choosing to oppose spiritual progress—while iniquity consists in an open and persistent defiance of recognized reality and signifies such a degree of personality disintegration as to border on cosmic insanity. - UB67:1.4

good point

56:10.20.To finite man truth, beauty, and goodness embrace the full revelation of divinity reality. As this love-comprehension of Deity finds spiritual expression in the lives of God-knowing mortals, there are yielded the fruits of divinity: intellectual peace, social progress, moral satisfaction, spiritual joy, and cosmic wisdom. The advanced mortals on a world in the seventh stage of light and life have learned that love is the greatest thing in the universe—and they know that God is love.

are you in a mental prison?

are you imprisoned by negative thoughts or a depressive mindset?

are you tormented by undesirable moods and a negative mindset

if you are in a mental prison, torment youself no longer,

you need to break out, you need to escape

you need to change your mind and shift your perspective

here you are in infinity, your mind is open with potential, open like infinity

there are no bounds to what you can imagine or conceive

be in awe of the vastness and wonderful creative potential before you

in the blink of an eye your consciousness can be elevated

your perceptions can be heightened with the presence of your genius self

it is the self of eternal spiritual wisdom and composure

it strengthens you with insight and celestial poise and confidence

it lifts your mind to the plane of superconsciousness wherein cosmic intelligence guides you

then who should you fear when the fearless Lord dwells in your heart and peers through your eyes

then who can move you from the eternal victory of spirit?

with a single thought you can escape your mental prison

it is such a weak prison when you think about it

you can demolish it with a brilliant idea

your mind is the best tool you have

with it you can create things grander than what has been created before

your mind is creative and when the enlightened individual intends to use this creative mind, great things happen

things happen beyond what you thought possible

so do not limit what your genius self can do for you and your mind

be open to its power and intend to express its creative genius and you will

overcome your undesirable patterns with its guidance

you can instantly experience greater thought patterns and emotional reaction patterns

I am honest. I prefer truth to lies. I prefer plain, direct but kind speech to all.

The answer comes from within:

"I am not what I seem. Flesh and blood do not reveal me to myself."

Back of personal estimate comes the consciousness that I am inseparably joined with Thee, and until my union is acknowledged and consummated through divine cooperation of Spirit, soul, and body, I am not content nor at one with Thee in consciousness.

"I AM that I AM."

"I am thine all possibility."

Where I am in reality is in Thy bosom. Where I am in the world of effects depends upon what I think I am.

Lord of my Being, I would be disentangled from the servitude and vicissitudes of the formed world. I would do all Thou wouldst have me do. I would be "in the world but not of it." I would dwell in the gloriousness of Thine omnipresent companionship. I would always be still enough to hear Thy voice instead of the confusion and clamor of senses. I would know and not assume. I would truly live and not exist.

Give me, dear Lord, Thy conscious support and let me be filled with the love and zeal that give character and direction to the activities of mind and body.

"I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfected into one."

YOU MAY FEEL YOU ARE LACKING POWER, BUT THAT IS ONLY BECAUSE OF NOT KNOWING YOURSELF AS YOU REALLY ARE ON THE LEVEL OF UNITY WITH ABSOLUTE BEING. THERE IS NO POWER AS SEPARATE FROM THE SELF! POWER IS INHERENT IN YOUR VERY NATURE. REAL AWARENESS OF BEING CAN REVEAL THIS TO YOU. IT IS NOT THAT YOU HAVE TO ACQUIRE POWER FOR THIS OR THAT NOBLE PURPOSE. LOOK INTO "I AM" ALL THE WAY, TOTALLY. "I AM" IS IMMOVABLE, UNSHAKABLE, INDEPENDENT, FREE AND NATURALLY ALL-POWERFUL, ALL-FULFILLING, ALL-ENJOYABLE. DO NOT SEEK POWER. YOU ALREADY HAVE IT INNATELY WITHIN YOU. SEEK YOUR OWN REAL NATURE. EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE IS YOUR OWN SPONTANEOUS CREATIVITY AT WORK BEYOND YOUR LITTLE CAUSAL EGO OF LIMITED CONSCIOUSNESS. YOU ARE CONSTANTLY IMMERSED IN BOUNDLESS POWER LIKE A PLUGGED UP EMPTY BOTTLE FLOATING ON THE SEA. ONCE YOU TAKE OUT THE PLUG THROUGH AWARENESS OF BEING, THE BOTTLE ALSO FILLS WITH WATER AND NO LONGER FEELS EMPTY AND POWERLESS.

Never limit your view of life by any past experience.

Spirituality is natural goodness. God is not a person; God is a presence personified in us. Spirituality is not a thing; it is the atmosphere of God’s Presence, goodness, truth, and beauty.

I am guided by the same intelligence and inspired by the same imagination which scatters the moon beams across the waves and holds the forces of nature in it’s grasp.

We are not depending on a reed shaken by the wind, but on the Principle of Life Itself, for all that we have or ever shall need. It is not some Power, or a great Power, it is All Power.

If you wish to know the truth about your business or your profession, know that it is an activity of good. It is an activity of your partnership with the infinite.

Love is within us. It cannot be destroyed. It can be ignored. To the extent that we abandon love we will feel it has abandoned us. Denying love is our only problem, and embracing it is the only answer. Through the power of love, we can let go of past history and begin again. Love heals, forgives, and makes whole.

Since the only life you can have is the life of the Spirit within you, you need but permit Its radiance to flow through your thought into self-expression. You are surrounded by a dynamic force, a great surge of living power. You are immersed in and saturated with the vital essence of Life. Its presence permeates everything, binding all together in one complete whole.

We have within us, a power that is greater than anything we shall ever contact in the outer, a power that can overcome every obstacle in our life and set us safe, satisfied and at peace, healed and prosperous, in a new light, and in a new life.

Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.

But we are born to be happy, to be abundantly supplied with every good thing, to have fun in living, to consciously unite with the Divine Power that is around us and within us, and to grow and expand forever.

meaning the unveiling.

you live inside of the earth. outer space is inner space. the milky way is just a band splitting the seam in the celestial sphere at 60 degrees like a mother's swaddling band.

there are multiple spheres of glass enveloping inner space diverginig light in a spectrum gradually from zenith to lift up from the earth parralel to the terminator to reconverge with the center of heaven like a circuit.

this is what lifts up your line of sight, gradually clips boats and bridges, and occluding the land mass curving upwards.

your line of sight is hitting the underside of clouds and converging with the center of heaven within every degree within 180 degrees of your fov.

the celestial sphere is therefore figuratively split in two by your line of sight refracting through multiple polarizing bowed spherical glass prisms meaning the half of the celestial sphere visible by your fov compresses/inverts around your 180 degree fov over the optical edit of the horizonal crease.

the sun is going to stop in the sky dissolving the heavens with fervent heat. and the central octahedron is going to descend to the south pole to marry and replenish earth. replacing the omega beta wave moon phases reflecting the light of the sun on a curve through multiple polarizing bowed spherical glass prisms enveloping inner space. the circuit and curtain of heaven will break and you will be able to see the land mass curve upwards once again. hence the unveiling of the prison cell earth you live in.

The shepherd is going to corrall his people over martial law before this happens. get ready. this is what donald trump, q anon, and majestic 12 are working to expose after incriminating the dems as being unable to compromise on border security.

On this week's edition of Spiritual Awakening Radio we explore the history of vegetarianism and even veganism in the great world religions and philosophies:

Akhenaten the "Heretic" Egyptian Pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty, who ruled for 17 years;

Hebrew Bible, First Book of Moses: Genesis;

Yoga Shastra, a sutra or scripture of Jainism;

Bhagavad Gita of Krishna;

Srimad Bhagavatam;

The Laws of Manu, a kind of "Hindu Torah" or Book of Laws;

Pythagoras and the Pythagoreans;

Porphyry, a 3rd century AD Neo-Platonist philosopher;

The Vegetarian Prayer of Thanksgiving in the Epilogue of Asclepius of the Corpus Hermeticum, and the same prayer again, as it also turns up in the Nag Hammadi Library of Egypt, the Gnostic Gospels;

Early Church “Heresy Hunters” that used to require meat-eating on Sundays as a way to discover who the veg Gnostics were in their midst;

Philo of Alexandria's description of veg meals at a Jewish Therapeutae monastic community in Alexandria perhaps related to the Essenes;

The Bahai Faith: Baha’u’llah, ‘Abdu’l-Baha, and Shoghi Effendi – prophecies of a vegan future of humanity;

Vegetarianism in Islam: The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), Rabia of Basra, Bawa Muhaiyaddeen and the Sufis;

John the Baptist, who ate locust bean (carob) flour, not locusts – BEANS NOT BUGS;

and the Mystery of the Missing Veg Saying of Jesus found in Luke 21: 34 of the Evangelion Da-Mepharreshe – the Old Syriac-Aramaic manuscript of the New Testament Gospels but is no longer present in Greek manuscripts;

Well look at Dave Navarro, he's 51!

Are there any books that specifically speak of 'Perfect Eternal Conscious Energy' on a high level?

I like many of the sacred texts from the major world religions..

>the choosing of new and better reaction habits in the place of older and inferior reaction patterns

100:4.1 Religious living is devoted living, and devoted living is creative living, original and spontaneous. New religious insights arise out of conflicts which initiate the choosing of new and better reaction habits in the place of older and inferior reaction patterns. New meanings only emerge amid conflict; and conflict persists only in the face of refusal to espouse the higher values connoted in superior meanings.

you don't.

all of this beats being bored throughout eternity as eternal thinker-feelers.

bad times make good times taste/feel/sound better.
