  1. The Prophet Elijah and Jon the Baptist Video- There has been a saying since time immemorial "From age to age I am incarnate, to aid the good in the world, and to and destroy the evil" Reincarnation and the bible- http://reincarnation..._testament.html Reincarnation in Judaism- http://www.jewishvir...ncarnation.html There is a mysterious connection in the bible between John the Baptist and the Prophet Elijah. Some people suggest that what is really going on is that John the Baptist is the reincarnation of the prophet Elijah. It is also very obvious to many scholars that in the bible Jesus is clearly being associated with, compared to, and being considered the new Moses in the biblical writings. Moses came to teach for the age of Aries, which is why he is represented often with a Ram. The previous age before Aries was Taurus, Symbolized by a Bull. Jesus then came for the age of Pisces symbolized by the image of a fish. The Return of Elijah Prophecy There are several possibilities concerning Elijah and John the Baptist. 1- They are the same being 2- John the Baptist had the same level, or was like "the new" Elijah 3- 1 and 2 are one in the same The meaning and implications are quite interesting We also see that the bible portrays Jesus in the context as the new Moses, the successor of Moses, and even the reincarnation of Moses.

  2. Recently I came across some articles talking about a very interesting issue. The issue of the disagreements and conflict between James the brother of Jesus, and Paul, about how to interpret and put into practice Jesus' teachings. Paul never met Jesus, he just claims to have seen him in a "vision" or some kind of "channeling" experience. Some believe Paul was a false teacher, or at the least, altered Jesus' teachings considerably in ways Jesus did not intend for.

  3. Most historians believe Jesus Christ was an actual man who really existed, and we know the things he did and taught have stood the test of time. The commandment to love thy neighbor as thyself, is so perfect of a law, it is practically impossible to improve upon. The most famous thing he did was come back from death and conquer death. In history prophets have used the energy of the universe to perform many incredible feats including bringing people back to life. In modern times cardiologists sometimes bring people who had heart attacks back to life by shocking them with electricity, but this uses machines and has to be very soon after the person died. It may be hard to accept for some people that a master could bring someone back to life with life energy. So there is a theory that in fact Jesus did not die on the cross. Remember that he was taken down much earlier than a person was normally supposed to be on the cross, and they decided to not break his legs like they usually do when they take someone down. Then, when he was put in his tomb, the herbs his people brought with them were not funerary herbs, but medicinal ones. We know the order Jesus originally came from, the Essenes, were experts in the use of the medicinal properties of plants.

They had thought the differences between modern Judaism and Christianity were originated within the Christian religion. However, with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the literature of the ancient Essenes, The Sons of Light, or the Great White Brotherhood, in the late 1940s, this view was found to be completely wrong. The concepts of Baptism, Ritual meals( Last Supper), The Holt Spirit/Holy Ghost, Resurrection, the concept of a coming Messiah of the line of David, A messiah that would heal the sick and raise the dead, a Messiah that must die, and the concept of Armageddon in the Book of Revelations are but a few teachings found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. These people, the Essenes, are where much of the core Christian beliefs originate. The Sermon on the Mount, considered by some to be the heart of Christian teachings, has been ideintified by scholars as the teachings of the Esssenes. The Beatitudes of Christ have direct parallels to the Beatitudes of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Many of the parables spoken by Jesus exactly match parables and hymns in the Dead Sea Scrolls which were written and spoken by the Essenes at their monasteries. It is even in the Bible itself, Jesus the Nazarene. Through the study of linguistics and textual criticism, it can be found that the correct translation is Jesus the Nazarene, Jesus the Essene. The fact that researchers didn't have access to the DSS for so many decades is infuriating. The amount of controversy, bickering, cover ups, and politics involved with research on the Scrolls is sad.

  6. Nazareth- the town theology built Video about it- It would seem that recently here a debate has sprung up about whether Jesus was an historical person, and how much of his story is true and how much is made up. Here are some interesting links which talk about an interesting issue about Jesus. What if there was no Nazareth at that time, or, what if he wasn't really there? According to historical and archaeological evidence, it did not exist historically at the time period of Jesus or until after the 4th century. While human settlements have been found in the area dating back as far as 9000 years and hardcore "Christian" historians claim them as proof of Nazareth, nothing has been found to prove the existence of an actual city called Nazareth, or even a settlement called Nazareth, at the time of Jesus. No roads,villas, theatres, and especially synagogues! Modern Scholarship has found many instances where the modern bible contains bad translations from the original greek texts. One example is the mistranslation "Jesus of Nazareth". This became mistranslated into being understood as Jesus coming from the town of "Nazareth". However, modern archaeology shows that no such town existed at that time. We now know the proper translatation was "Jesus the Nazarene", meaning Jesus the Essene. The Essenes were a third group of Monastic Jews who would live in Monasteries near the Dead Sea in Jesus' day, who's teachings were at odds with those of the Saducees and Pharisees in the Jerusalem Temple of the time.- Nazareth – The Town that Theology Built Textual Analysis- History- So to be sure, Jesus did exist as a real spiritual teacher. He was an Essene teacher. An Essene teacher who was to come out and teach a bit more publically to succeed and surpass Jon the Baptist who was also an Essene.
