WHO ARE THE CHOSEN ONES OF GOD REALLY?
WHO ARE THE CHOSEN ONES OF GOD REALLY?
This one is going to take us a little deeper into scripture and its esoteric meaning. We hear churches telling us that the Jews are the Chosen Ones of God. So, if this is true, then we should know how to determine what a JEW really means right?
Romans 2:29 in the original English KJV of 1611 says:
"... But he is a Iew which is one inwardly ..."
Notice "IEW" (not Jew) ... or in Latin "IAO" ... and in Greek "ΙΑΩ." The Hebrew Tetragrammaton, or Mystic Name of God, is (YHWH) pronounced ΙΑΟϒ, and signifies "He that is and shall be." So, the Name of the Lord" amongst the Hebrews is of four letters, yod (Iod), Hey, Vav, Hey ... which is properly the Name of God, and may be read as ΙΑΗΟ (Iaho) (in Latin characters).
Stay with me on this.
The Egyptians express the name of the Supreme Being by the seven Greek vowels "ΙΕΗΩΟϒΑ." Among the Hindu's it was "AUM." (A) standing for the Creator, (U) for the Preserver, (M) for the Destroyer.
Among the Gnostics, “I” signifies All goeth out; Α, All returneth within; Ω, There shall be an end of ends." It is also symbolic of "Abraxas" ... the name given by some of the early Gnostic Christians to denote the embodied form of God ... or manifestation in the human being as the Christos (the anointed one of God) … the Christ.
Thus in a sense Abraxas (IAO/IEW) is the cosmic Oversoul, the creative or Third Logos, Brahma. Abraxas also was identified with the Hebrew 'Adonai, the Egyptian Horus, and the Hindu Prajapati.
All this can be very confusing, but suffice it to say that what it all comes down to is that everyone who wishes to find "God", may go within and find God there. This term "JEW" used spiritually means one who enters within ... as Jesus said ... "your closet." You go inside yourself through meditation or contemplative prayer.
Now, follow me for a moment. Let's take the actual word ISRAEL ... from a spiritual point of view, rather than a geographic region or country.
Is-Ra-El = Isis-Ra-Elohim, the feminine (Isis), the masculine (Amen-Ra), and EL (Elohim) Spirit or God (Ida, Pingala, and Sushumna in Kundalini Yoga).
"Is" or "Isis", the Egyptian Goddess, also seen as the Moon Goddess; "Ra", is the Egyptian Sun God, and "El", is generally meant to signify "God" ... Ultimate Spirit.
The lower mind, the moon, is integrated with the higher mind, the sun, by the spirit or conscious energy from above ... as a magnetic attraction.
"Jews" are not a race and Israel is not a country, biblically speaking that is. It's Mythology describing one who has attained the higher, by way of meditation, by becoming a Jew - one who connects with Spirit within - illuminated, INWARDLY.
The chosen land is the human brain (your Temple and Golgotha/place of the skull), but first the Canaanites have to be driven out. The lower mind quality is overturned, and then:
Book of Romans 12:2:
"Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed (a metamorphosis) by the renewing of your Mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God"
What would the worldwide religions do, if they read that the holy land is mythology describing the human brain? And that the word "Is Ra El" means "ISIS Ra Elohim?"
And a Jew is one INWARDLY, one who meditates ... these are the chosen one's of God. An Israelite was an “illuminated one.” Sorry, to the modern country Israel, the Bible is not talking about you. God doesn't choose a race of people. ALL people are of God/Origin.
Although the Bible stories are mythology, the country of Israel takes the whole thing literally, and we see the results of that in Palestine and Gaza, heartless, cold, cruel slaughter, just like the mythological Mountain God of the Old testament ... a murderer if taken literally.
Failure of modern effort to read the deep esoteric message of the Bible is due to the fact that modern scholars stubbornly refuse to see that ancient scriptural writing was esoteric or hidden as to its meaning, and allegorical and symbolical as to its method.
The ancients presented their secret Wisdom, given them by the great Sages, in the form of allegories and myths, which were to be taken as fiction outwardly (exoteric), but as profound truth and knowledge in an inward sense (esoteric). Jospeh Campbell offers a wonderful meaning of Myth (from the Greek mythos): “a myth is something that never was, yet always is.”
By a combination of symbols, nature signs and allegories, often woven into a background of real history, they sought to portray the deepest types of spiritual experience and an intellectual grip on reality. The Bible has been taken for literal Truth about living personages on the stage of mortal history. It has been wrongly rendered literally and historically ... rather than through allegory and metaphors that conveyed the real Truth. This is an Apocalypse (apocalypsis in the Greek) ... meaning a revealing or unveiling of what was once hidden.
This is the biggest, the most worrisome error, in all human history, this mistaking of spiritual allegory for literal human narrative. It has brought wars, oppression, racism, separation, and unrest to millions of people on Earth. And all for no reason other than mistaking the spiritual metaphorical myth, for the literal and historical truth.
The ancients themselves testify plentifully that the scriptures are allegories. The early Christian Origen, regards the whole Bible as a set of allegories. But the most astonishing declaration to this effect is St. Paul's own statement in Galatians that the whole story of Abraham and Sarah and Hagar is "an allegory." There is not a scrap of evidence anywhere to identify the Israelites as the historical Hebrews or Jews. The latter simply appropriated the distinction to themselves and fitted their history into the sacred scheme.
Jerusalem, Egypt, Sodom, Babylon and others are therefore only spiritual names transferred to the map from the celestial chart. In fact the Bible is an assemblage of material comprising the substance of Hermeticism, Gnosticism, Kabbalism, Chaldean astrology, Greek Orphism and Hindu Wisdom, drawn mostly from ancient Egypt and it's mysticism taught among the Mystery Schools of that time.
Question everything my friend, even those things I write of. For in your questioning, answers will come from within. Scriptures tell us the Kingdom of Heaven/God is within us. And the Kingdom is described as Love, Peace, and Joy. Find this, and you find the answer to all things.
"You shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free."
