The Lost Doctrines of Christianity
The basic unshakeable belief inherent in mainstream Christianity is its rock hard faith that all other religions are false or inadequate if not out right blasphemy. By default this makes all religions prior it Christianity also false. Its as if Christianity was a new religion that began 2,000 ago. Yet the New Testament proves that is logically inconsistent with one of the four canons of the New Testament. The Gospel of John begins with:
Christianity is Not New
The Word Became Flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,
who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
This Gospel identifies the true identity of who Jesus (Yeshua) was. The Creator God himself. The same being we were introduced in the Old Testament as YHWH divested himself of his godhead and walked among us as a man. If Yeshua was the creator God in the Flesh then any religion that worshipped the Creator God before the time of Christ was a part of what is simply the original religion. See: Was Christ God in the Flesh?
Another misconception is the the Jewish Religion is 5,000 years old or older. Just because the Old Testament records what happened during the time of adam and eve and afterwards does no mean ther religion goes all the way back to that time. What we call Judaism today is only 1,000 years older than Christianity. Before the time of Moses there was no Hebrew religion handed down from Mt. Zion. Moses was 400 years after the time of Abraham. From the time of Moses to the the time of Christ was about 1,000 years. What was the original religion from the time of Adam to the time of Moses? It was the religion that followed the teachings of the Creator God. Many religion boths old an new actually all have there roots in the original religion. The first record of a religion that worshipped the Creator God was the ancient Vedics. Their writings go back to 4,000 years ago and those writings are the records of a rich oral history that was memorized and passed down from generation to generation. The teachings come from the Creator God. The proof would be in discovering that the teachings of Christ can be found in a spiritual path older than Adam and Eve. The Lost Doctrines of Christianity is based on a special knowledge of who Christ was and is and why we are truly in the most real sense his brothers and sisters?
There is proof held back from the research into the Essenes, the people of the dead sea scrolls, that a form of Christianity existed at least 200 years before the time that Christ lived.
Even more amazing is that Christ revealed prophecies that would identify who the true followers of his teachings were. Proof is found in the history books. Not as the ones that triumphed but the ones killed for their beliefs.
In Matthew 24 we learn. 9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
YHWH revealed to John on the island of Patmos what was going to happen with those that followed his teachings. They were to be almost destroyed and on the run for 1260 years
Seven times the Bible predicted a 1260-year period of A FALSE CHURCH RULING WITH ABSOLUTE supremacy and RESPOSIBLE FOR the persecution of the woman [people of God]. History proved those predictions to be correct.
The Woman and the Dragon
1 A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. 4 His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born. 5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
5 The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months (1,260 days). 6 He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. 7 He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. NIV
How did the writings of the Reformers interpret these 1260 day/years? The day/year principle is an old principle already recognized by the Jews, even before the time of Christ. David Simpson (1745-1799) theologian and religious writer, educated at St. Johns College, Cambridge, a Methodist, wrote:
"Is it not extremely remarkable, and a powerful confirmation of the truth of Scripture prophecy, that just 1260 years ago from the present 1798, in the very beginning of the year 538, Belisarius put an end to the empire of the Goths at Rome, leaving no power therein but the Bishop of that Metropolis? Read these things in the prophetic Scriptures; … and then, I say again, deny the truth of Divine Revelation, if you can. Open your eyes, and behold these things accomplishing in the face of the whole world. This thing is not done in a corner." (Page 166 "A Plea for Religion and the Sacred Writings).
The 1260 years foretold in prophecy were therefore A.D. 538-1798.
The 7 texts referring to the 1260-year period are as follows:
One of the overlooked facts of history is that the believers killed and subsequently wiped out by the Roman Catholic Church were THE GNOSTICS AND OTHER CHRISTIANS who believed in reincarnation. It isn't a coincidence that the century that saw the abolition of the Gnostics and other Christians who believed in reincarnation is the same century that the Roman Emperor Justinian (545 A.D) made it punishable by death to believe in reincarnation. The prophecied 1,260 years began in 538 A.D. and the elimination of reincarnation as a tenet of Christina Theology was in full force only seven years later. See Pope Arrested for Believing in Reincarnation. The universal assumption of Christians today is that the Gnostics were heretics who deserved to be wiped out. However, if Christ prophecied through the apostle John that the true Christians would be killed and that a false church would replace them, then IT IS THE BELIEFS OF THE ONES KILLED THAT REPRESENTS THE TRUE TEACHINGS OF CHRIST, NOT THE TEACHINGS OF THE ONES THAT SURVIVED!!
Ancient writings were discovered in 1945 which revealed more information about the concept of reincarnation from the sect of Christians called "Gnostics". This sect was ultimately destroyed by the Roman orthodox church, their followers burned at the stake and their writings wiped out. The writings included some long lost gospels, some of which were written earlier than the known gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The Gnostic Christians claimed to possess the correct definition of "resurrection" - based on Jesus' secret teachings, handed down to them by the apostles.
The existence of a secret tradition can be found in the New Testament:
"He [Jesus] told them, ' The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!'" (Mark 4:11-12)
"No, we speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began." (1 Corinthians 2:7)
"So then, men ought to regard us as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the secret things of God." (1 Corinthians 4:1)
