One True Religion Part 3

BUDDHA, YHWH, YESHUA, & THE 7,000 YEAR PLAN OF YHWH (God of Gods)

The perspective to keep as I present this information is the understanding that there is an uncreated realm and a created realm.

For an overview of these two realms see:
http://reluctant-messenger.com/citsym/understanding-God.htm

Another perspective is this: This planets purpose is to be a spiritual nursery. The goal of all souls that are incarnating on this planet is to someday achieve Buddhahood. The ultimate goal of God is to implement a perfect environment for all souls to achieve Buddhahood.

Buddha found how to achieve oneness with the uncreate. Yeshua Christ's goal is to help you achieve your optimum god potential within the created realm. It is your right and privilege to decide when you achieve oneness with the uncreate and break free of the cycle of birth and death. Until you do, it is Christ's plan to help you break free from the cycle of birth and death by helping you inherit an incorruptible body as glorious as his is.

The Father of both God and Buddha is Brahman the ineffable effulgent infinite undifferentiated uncreate eternal awareness. Once Buddha achieved oneness with Brahman the Father he became the Father and Gautama Buddha ceased to exist.

YHWH is known as the God of the Old Testament. YHWH incarnated physically as a man, known as the Son of Man, to be made perfect. I quote from the Amplified Bible.

Hebrews 2
9 But we are able to see Jesus, Who was ranked lower than the angels for a little while, crowned with glory and honor because of His having suffered death, in order that by the grace (unmerited favor) of God [to us sinners] He might experience death for every individual person.
10 For it was an act worthy [of God] and fitting [to the divine nature] that He, for Whose sake and by Whom all things have their existence, in bringing many sons into glory, should make the Pioneer of their salvation perfect [should bring to maturity the human experience necessary to be perfectly equipped for His office as High Priest] through suffering.
11 For both He Who sanctifies [making men holy] and those who are sanctified all have one [Father]. For this reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren;

Yeshua (YHWH in the flesh) is made perfect in order to become our high priest. Even though YHWH created all, until he suffered death for us all, he wasn’t perfect enough to be our high priest.

Was Christ YHWH in the flesh.
http://reluctant-messenger.com/God-in-flesh.htm
The reason Yeshua’s death could erase the negative karma of millions of lifetimes for every person that has ever lived is because by being the creator of mankind, his death was greater than the death of all who have ever died.

In order to bring both Buddha and Yeshua together requires understanding the 7,000 year plan of YHWH and why we even have to have a 7,000 year plan of salvation.

Rather than go over this material again, I point you to the following urls. For why there is a need to repair the spiritual fabric of this word see:

The overview of the fact that the early church of Christ knew about the 7,000 year plan to replace Satan with Christ see the Epistle of Barnabas:
http://reluctant-messenger.com/sabbath-how-to-keep.htm#barnabus

The God in charge of the Bible dictated the Torah to Moses one letter at a time. Proof that the first five books of the Bible are from God lies in the Torah Codes
http://reluctant-messenger.com/torah_codes.htm

But the story begins with the original religion and the original prophet. Enoch. . Genesis, the first book of the Torah records a man achieving Buddhahood.
http://reluctant-messenger.com/enoch.htm

Enoch walked with God and was translated and did not see death. In his travels among the spiritual realms he sees The Son of Man and The Ancient of Days. (This is symbolic language for YHWH and Brahman) This one pure religion allowed its follower to achieve Buddhahood (ceased the cycle of birth and death.)
The one pure religion existed until the Tower of Babel Incident. The religion that is old enough to produce a Buddha 5,000 years ago is the Vedic religion. This is the first religion to understand there was a nameless ineffable awareness that transcended all and yet was responsible for all of creation. The Chinese call it Tao, westerners call it God the Father, and the ancient Vedic’ called it Brahman. Enoch achieved oneness with Brahman and became part of the Eternal God Realm.

The original religion of oneness with Brahman was a meditative discipline that removed negative karma (walking with God) and allowed the practitioner to realize that his true nature was of the divine. I refer to them on my website as the seven wisdoms.
http://reluctant-messenger.com/wisdom.htm
http://reluctant-messenger.com/7wisdom-sutras.htm
The meditative nature of this path was based on daily meditation. Noah was a grandson of Enoch and this was part of the reason Noah and his family was chosen to survive the flood. The purity of the original religion as practiced by Enoch and passed onto Noah was lost when YHWH God intervened in what is now known at the Tower of Babel incident.
http://reluctant-messenger.com/religion.htm

The next time we find a man capable of communicating with God is when Genesis tells us about Abraham.

Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee: and I will make of thee a Great Nation … and in thee shall all the families of the Earth to be blessed. (Genesis 12:1)

Bible scholars agree that the promise YHWH made to Abram (later changed to Abraham) was a promise and a prophecy of the Messiah, the one who became Yeshua (Jesus) the Anointed One. God used Abraham to start a family of nations that God would use to perform several functions. Through the Hebrew peoples YHWH created what is now known as the Old Testament. This document contains the history of the world from the time of Adam and Eve as well as prophecies and instructions on how to live a life of peace and prosperity.

7,000 Year Plan Half-Way There

Remember that the original religion in its fullness was lost after the Tower of Babel incident. The Religion of Judaism and later Christianity have their roots in Abraham. Abraham derives his knowledge of God from what Noah was able to pass onto his son Shem. This knowledge was part of a daily practice of prayer, meditation and a lifestyle of obedience to the highest principals of conduct. As we get to know Abraham within the early pages of the Torah we also learn of his imperfections of character.

By the time we get to Moses the original religion is lost to the Hebrews and Moses introduces a new ritualized and codified religion that includes a seventh day Sabbath. The interesting aspect of this is that in contrast from the original religion, which was a daily practice, seven days a week, a shortcut version of the original religion is introduced.

Every seven days, YHWH required of Abraham’s descendants that they cease from all activity associated with making a living and instead spend it in rest. By resting and focusing on God, the Hebrew was “Keeping it Holy.” In order to make the seventh day approach to meditation and contemplation as effective as the original religion, God placed his Holy Presence.

Genesis 2: 2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

When God revealed the Sabbath to Moses, it was around 3,000 years after Adam and Eve. This is halfway through the 6,000 year period that is allotted for mankind to work under the delusion of the Devil. The last 1,000 years of the 7,000 year plan is the Sabbath Rest for the whole world. See Hebrews 4.

The reason the Sabbath is holy is because God blessed it with the most powerful blessing there is, God’s Divine Nature and Presence. Keeping this particular day holy and abstaining from the common householder duties allowed this shortcut version of the first religion to be as effective as the original 7 day, daily life of a true renunciate.

I explore this concept in detail on:
http://reluctant-messenger.com/sabbath_buddha.htm

Buddha practiced the original religion 500/600 years before Christ. He began is path to enlightenment by abandoning the life of the householder, including the opportunity to become a Universal Monarch. He took of the life of renunciate. This ascetic lifestyle is to help the mendicant achieve non-attachment to the world by abandoning everything one can be attached to. In this case it was his wife and son and the pleasures of the palace life.

Once Buddha achieved total enlightenment, he taught others. When they joined they too became seven day a week members of others who had totally renounced worldly possessions and responsibilities. The concept of a Sabbath was unnecessary in the case of Buddha’s followers because by keeping every day holy, they by default kept the Sabbath Holy also.

While Buddha was achieving enlightenment in India, the Hebrews were the keepers of the book of YHWH which included the short-cut one in seven Holy Day. This particular version of the original religion produced such notables as Moses, Elijah, Daniel and other men who communicated with God. Once again this particular form of the religion created yet, another Buddha. Elijah was also translated direct from the physical to the spiritual much like Enoch was.

2 Kings 2
1 And it came to pass, when the LORD would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind…

The reason this religion structure was able to produce a Buddha was that one of the Tribes of Israel did not own land. They were the Priest Tribe and were supported by the other Tribes of Israel and were able to dedicate themselves the spiritual life. The parallel here is that in order to achieve the level of enlightenment such as a Buddha, Elijah or Enoch, one has to daily divorce themselves from the world and totally focus on their true divine nature. In India, the local economy supported those that renounced worldly possessions. It was considered good luck to feed a Holy man. In the religion revealed to Moses from YHWH, the souls that were destined to break free from the cycle of births and deaths were economically supported by the tithing system implemented by God.

By the time Christ was on the Scene 2,000 years ago, the Sabbath had become corrupted to a strict list of dos and don’ts. Much of Christ’s ministry was staging events that forced those around to understand the Sabbath and its spiritual importance. This is why so many Miracles were performed on the Sabbath. On many levels this taught those around him. At the highest level it showed those around that miracles were part of our true nature. Christ promised that his followers would be able to access the same level of divine enlightenment and would perform miracles.

How important did Christ consider the Sabbath? It is recorded in the Gospel of Thomas in saying 27.

27 "If you do not fast from the world, you will not find the kingdom. If you do not observe the sabbath as a sabbath you will not see the Father."
Here is Christ teaching the renunciation of the world and the importance of the Sabbath as a path to oneness with Brahman (God the Father / Tao)

The seven day week is reminder of the 7,000 plan of God to restore the original true religion on the earth free from the deceptions of Mara / Satan / Devil. Genesis begins with the Gods repairing the earth in seven days including the creation of the sabbath.

And God Said…
http://reluctant-messenger.com/and-God-said.htm

This seven day week also represents the seven thousand year plan of God to repair the spiritual purity of the earth. This requires getting rid of Satan.

Saving Humanity: God’s Plan.
http://reluctant-messenger.com/citsym/saving-mankind.htm
The 7,000 Year Plan of God:
God has planned a rest for mankind that will last 1,000 years. The first 6,000 years of human history since Adam and Eve represents the work of Satan. This work of Satan is a work of deception and is an attempt to make mankind ignorant of its true destiny and the Plan of God for achieving it.
Hebrews 4:3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. 5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. KJV
The Biblical justification of a 7,000-year Plan of God is based on the principal that to God a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day. From God's perspective the plan will only take a week.
Psalm 90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night. KJV
2 Peter 3:7 By the same word the present heavens and Earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. 8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. NIV
The seven-day week represents the Plan of God. The first six days represent the time of mankind's suffering under the works of Satan. The seventh day represents a rest for the people of God for one thousand years.

The last 1,000 years of the Plan of God involves Christ’s return to set up Sabbath Rest for his people.

The seven thousand year plan ends with a resurrection to judgment for all souls that have ever incarnated on this planet.

Revelation 20
Satan's Doom

7 When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth--Gog and Magog--to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. 9 They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God's people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. 10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

The Dead Are Judged

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15 If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

The reward for those found written in the book of life is participation in the new Heavens and new Earth as described in Rev. Chapter 21. Isaiah 65 also talks about this time.

Isaiah 65:17-25
New Heavens and a New Earth
17 "Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. 18 But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. 19 I will rejoice over Jerusalem and take delight in my people; the sound of weeping and of crying will be heard in it no more. 20 "Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his years; he who dies at a hundred will be thought a mere youth; he who fails to reach [1] a hundred will be considered accursed. 21 They will build houses and dwell in them; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit. 22 No longer will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others eat. For as the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people; my chosen ones will long enjoy the works of their hands. 23 They will not toil in vain or bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the LORD , they and their descendants with them. 24 Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear. 25 The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, but dust will be the serpent's food. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain," says the LORD.

This is a combination of a resurrection and a reincarnation.

ISAIAH 65 makes it plain that the participants will be living physical lives.

20 "Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his years; he who dies at a hundred will be thought a mere youth; he who fails to reach a hundred will be considered accursed.

You can't have infants without babies being born. The babies (infant bodies) that will be born on the New Earth will be animated by souls that were not thrown into the lake of fire. Souls that passed the test are the only ones available to reincarnate on the New Earth. All the bad souls are in HELL (LAKE of FIRE)

22 ... For as the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people;

Trees live a very long time, some of them over 2,000 years.

The resurrection to judgement will not be held on earth nor will it be in heaven, Here is how the KJV renders the same verse: 11. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

The phrase "no place" means:
5117 topos {top'-os}
apparently a primary word; TDNT - 8:187,1184; n m

AV - place 80, room 5, quarter 2, licence 1, coast 1, where 1,
plain + 3977 1, rock + 5138 1; 92

1) place, any portion or space marked off, as it were from
surrounding space
1a) an inhabited place, as a city, village, district
1b) a place (passage) in a book
2) metaph.
2a) the condition or station held by one in any company or assembly
2b) opportunity, power, occasion for acting

The best way to describe it is purgatory. Limbo, if you please. Once your judgement is set you will either be put in the lake of fire or you will be allowed to participate (via a reincarnation into a baby body) in the New Heaven and New Earth.

One of the reasons this truth has been veiled for so long is the universal misinterpretation of ISAIAH 65 referring to the 1,000 year reign of Christ. It is not a prophecy about that period of time but the utopian society that CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED ONCE SATAN AND ALL THE EVIL SOULS HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THE SCENE!

The inability of most Christians to see the plain meaning is because SATAN has gone to great lengths to deceive the Christian world into believing that REINCARNATION is a false doctrine.

Without reincarnation, none of Revelation 20 makes sense.

Note: At the end of the 1,000 year reign of Christ, Satan is released to deceive the world again. How can that be predicted with such certainty? BECAUSE GOD KNOWS THAT AT THE END OF THE PERIOD, THAT SOULS WHO HAVE A HISTORY OF FOLLOWING SATAN WILL BE REINCARNATED. THEIR KARMA IS SO BAD THEY DON'T GET TO REINCARNATE DURING THE UTOPIAN PORTION OF CHRIST'S REIGN. Instead, they are reincarnated at a time that fits their current spiritual condition.

Once the 7,000 year plan of God has been implemented, the original religion for producing Buddhas / God Beings will be in effect more powerful and effective than ever before.

This particular knowledge has been in the original religion for thousands of years and speaks of the time that Krishna will return and fight the devils and end the Kali-Yuga. The ancient documents of the Vedic religion speak of the cycle of Yugas, with the last one being a Yuga dominated by evil. In this Kali-yuga vice increases to such a point that at the termination of the yuga the Supreme Lord Himself appears as the Kalki Avatara, vanquishes the demons, saves His devotees, and commences another Satya-yuga.

The semantics don’t differ that much. The supreme lord is also known as Krishna which translated into the Greek means Christ.
