~ It's occult, not Christian ~
This horrendous deception blends ancient Gnosticism with the Kabbalah, Eastern religions, Theosophy, reincarnation and the practices of ancient mystery religions.
Note: Please pray for mental protection before reading this occult material. We post it because these horrendous suggestions are beginning too permeate popular culture through books, movies and other forms of entertainment.
"At the heart of Gnostic Christianity, as taught in the Sophian Tradition, is the view of Yeshua as a human being who embarked upon a spiritual or mystical journey and became Self-realized or Enlightened.... According to the Sophian Gospel he was not born Christ, but became Christed by the reception of teachings and initiations from his Spiritual Teachers and engaging in spiritual practice and spiritual living. It is said that Yeshua was, indeed, the incarnation of a Great Soul and that he had accomplished the divine labor of Self-realization or Enlightenment in previous lives. Nevertheless, incarnate in the world as a Light-bearer, he had to sojourn the Path to Enlightenment as any other human being. In so doing he became a living example of the Path to Self-realization or Enlightenment and was empowered to teach others how to attain ... Messianic Consciousness....
"Yeshua is not separate or apart from ourselves but rather represents the Divine Potential that is within each.... Anyone who is willing to receive the Teachings of the Ageless Wisdom and to undergo Spiritual Initiation, and who is willing to apply him or herself to spiritual practice and spiritual living can attain... Messianic Consciousness....
"Though the Wisdom Teachings speak of True Gnosis as a state of full Self-realization or Enlightenment, it is not a fixed or static state, but is, in fact, a dynamic state of Ever-Becoming into the One-Without-End. ..the Goal is the Path itself."....
"...Lord Yeshua had three Spiritual Teachers (Rabbis). [They taught him...]
1. ...the Law and the Prophets, and the Mystical Kabbalah.
2. ...the secrets of the Magical or Wonder-Working Kabbalah
2. ...the union of the Mystical and Magical Kabbalah and initiated him into the Way of the Baal Shem (the Master of the Name). ...
"According to the Tradition... Yeshua was the reincarnation of the Soul of Elisha, the protégé of Elijah."
Like other mystery religions and pagan systems, the yin-yang of the Tao is part of the path. Opposites -- light and dark, male and female, etc. -- must join together on the path toward spiritual unity and fulfillment.
"Gnostic Christianity teaches that others also embodied Supernal or Messianic Consciousness....
"In the Sophian Teachings the Christos is Supernal Being, the Light-Presence. ...he embodies Christ the Logos (the Bridegroom) and she embodies Christ the Sophia (the Holy Bride). (This is also part of the Kabbalah)
This kind of teaching may have influenced C. S. Lewis through two of his closest friends, Charles Williams and Owen Barfield. Both were involved in occult orders and philosophies such as Theosophy, Rosicrucianism and Hermetic magic. (See Warnings - How mysticism & the occult are changing the Church) All that follows is gross heresy and occult deceptions. Yet, some of the concepts are central to the global church envisioned by dominionists within the evangelical church as well as by the United Nations:
"In our own struggle for Conscious Evolution and efforts towards Self-realization in Supernal or Christ Consciousness we actively live and experience the Gospel of the Anointed and serve in the divine labor to co-create the conditions necessary for the Second Coming – the full Advent of Supernal or Messianic Consciousness on Earth.
"This is the foundation of Gnostic Circles that form in the Sophian Tradition, for it is not a work accomplished by one individual alone but by collectives of individuals laboring together with one Mind and Heart, as one Mystical Body of the Light-Presence, united in the bonds of Love and Knowledge (hence, True Spiritual Community.)
"...an Elder (Adept) or Tau (Master) who embodies something of Supernal or Messianic Consciousness and the Sacred Circle of Spiritual Companions that naturally forms around the Elder or Tau as he or she imparts the Teachings and Initiations of the Light-Transmission. In this way each Sophian Circle reflects the First Circle and every Sophian Circle becomes a Center and Matrix of the Christ Presence or Light-Presence in the world."
"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness....
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!" Isaiah 5:20-21
