Who is Adam Kadmon?

Adam Kadmon 

Adam Kadmon, the architypal man was compounded of these qualities of the Spirit. Jesus, after his baptism, being the final repository of the Spirit, for it had rested in him, could now confer its several gifts on those who accepted him


A number of Hebrew and Greek terms refer to man. ´Adham´ means “man; human; earthling man; mankind” (generic); ´ish, “man; an individual; a husband”; ´enohsh´, “a mortal man”; ge´ver, “an ab
le-bodied man”; za·khar´, “a male”; a few other Hebrew words are also sometimes translated “man.” 

The Greek anthropos means “man; mankind” (generic); aner´, “a man; a male person; a husband.”

444. ἄνθρωπος anthropos anth’-ro-pos; from 435 and ωψ ops (the countenance; from 3700); man-faced, i.e. a human being: —  certain, man. 

 Elohim (the Powers) said: “Let us make man [´a·dham´] in our image, according to our likeness.” (Ge 1:26, 27; Pr 8:30, 31; compare Joh 1:1-3; Col 1:15-17.) 

Man was made "in the image" of the Elohim (Powers), and inasmuch as they are "sons of God," the image is divine (though the nature of man is not). James makes the point that "we are made after the similitude of God," "even the Father" (James 3:9).

"While image, then, hath reference to form or shape, 'likeness' hath regard to mental constitution, or capacity... Adam's mental capacity enabled him to comprehend and receive spiritual ideas, which moved him to veneration, hope, conscientiousness, the expression of his views, affections, and so forth. Seth was capable of the like display of intellectual and moral phenomena; and of an assimilation of character to that of his father. He was therefore in the likeness as well as in the image of Adam; and, in the same sense, they were both 'after the likeness of the Elohim.

Adam was made in the likeness of his heavenly counterpart the Adam Kadmon, the architypal man, who is the logos or the anointing spirit (Messiah or Christ)

Adam and Seth being two versions of the "Archetypal Man" or Anthropos

Ro 5:14  Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

The word ''figure" signifies type. Rotherham translates this: "Adam, who is a type of the coming one". The Greek word tupos describes a pattern, or mould, into which a final product is fitted or poured; an impression, or mark, which is made by percussion.

the One created the Anthropos in its own image, as an androgynous angel (i.e. male and female). This was the First Man Adam Kadmon,
"Adam Kadmon" (= אדם קדמון) and "Nakhash Kadmon" (= נחש קדמון), 

Anthrôpos is the pure mind a mind conceived hypostatically as emanating from God

the Anthropos -- an aeon in the Pleroma, one of the attributes of the Ultimate Oneness, 

Adam Kadmon

the Jewish concept of Adam Kadmon is the Christian concept of the “Mystical Body of Christ"

However the Christian understanding of Adam Kadmon is very different from the Jewish concept which is a primordial heavenly man. It is he that is the true “image of God,” a majestic vessel of divine glory, the ideal human (Deut. 4:32; PdRK 4:4, 12:1, Lev. R. 20:2). All earthly humans (Gen. 2-3) are in his image 

What is most striking to me is Paul’s insistence on the “order” of being. Paul pointedly states the “spiritual Adam” was not first.

So, too, it is written, "The first man, Adam, became a living being," the last Adam a life-giving spirit. But the spiritual was not first; rather the natural and then the spiritual. 

The first man was from the earth, earthly; the second man, from heaven. As was the earthly one, so also are the earthly, and as is the heavenly one, so also are the heavenly. 

Just as we have borne the image of the earthly one, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly one. (I Corinthians 15:45-50)

This indicates to me that Paul is both aware of and modified an already well-known doctrine of a “spiritual Adam” that people believed preceded the earthly Adam. Since Jesus came millenia after human creation, Paul finds it necessary for the spiritual Adam be the crowning moment of humanity, rather then its origin.

Jesus sometimes use the term "Son of man" not to refer Himself but the Heavenly Adam Kadmon, the perfect man the full grown Christ

Therefore the true Adam Kadmon is a Corporate Being the mystical body of Christ

Jesus is the head of this Adam Kadmon or son of man the true believers are the body of Adam Kadmon

“Now you are Christ’s body, and members individually,” in a spiritual sense. 1Co 12:27

Adam Kadmon also refers to a the higher state of consciousness which Jesus' atonited message produces. Jesus is the first fruits or prototype of this higher consciousness the Christ-consciousness. Jesus' aonited teachings put the body of Christ-consciousness in reach of us all.

Adam Kadmon is a Corporate Being called the Son of Man (Dan 7 Rev 1) others call it the mystical body of Christ it refers to large number/body of people who are in the Christ consciousness or the Corporate Being the Son of Man the multitudinous Christ

What is Repentance?

What is Repentance?

Repent is, in the original Greek, "change your mind."

repentance can mean a reformation from within see Mt 3:8  bear, therefore, fruits worthy of the reformationYoung's Literal Translation

Young's Literal Translation Mt 3:1 ¶  And in those days cometh John the Baptist, proclaiming in the wilderness of J
2  and saying, ‘Reform, for come nigh hath the reign of the heavens,’
3  for this is he who was spoken of by Isaiah the prophet, saying, ‘A voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, straight make ye His paths.’
4  And this John had his clothing of camel’s hair, and a girdle of skin round his loins, and his nourishment was locusts and honey of the field.
5  Then were going forth unto him Jerusalem, and all Judea, and all the region round about the Jordan,
6  and they were baptized in the Jordan by him, confessing their sins.
7 ¶  And having seen many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming about his baptism, he said to them, ‘Brood of vipers! who did shew you to flee from the coming wrath?
8  bear, therefore, fruits worthy of the reformation,

Reformation The act of reforming, or the state of being reformed; change from worse to better; correction or amendment of life, manners, or of anything vicious or corrupt; as, the reformation of manners; reformation of the age; reformation of abuses. 

Jesus himself knew the heart of men and he knew that the revolution must come from within because defilement comes from within

Mark 7:17 When he had entered a house away from the crowd, his disciples began to question him about respecting this illustration.18 So he said to them, "Are you thus without understanding also? Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside cannot defile him, 19 because it does not enter his heart but his stomach, and then goes out into the sewer.” 20 And he said, "What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. 23 All these evil things come from within and defile a man." 

The Greek word found in strong’s 3341 metanoia is translated "repentance," does not mean an admission to God of sorrow for past sin and a resolve to be good in the future. literally means is after-knowing (in contrast to foreknowing) and signifies a change in one’s mind, attitude, or purpose.

In Greek, two verbs are used in connection with repentance: me·ta·no·e´o and me·ta·me´lo·mai. The first is composed of me·ta´, meaning “after,” and no·e´o (related to nous, the mind, disposition, or moral consciousness), meaning “perceive, discern, mentally grasp, or be aware.” Hence, me·ta·no·e´o literally means afterknowing (in contrast to foreknowing) and signifies a change in one’s mind, attitude, or purpose. Me·ta·me´lo·mai, on the other hand, comes from me´lo, meaning “care for or have interest in.” The prefix me·ta´ (after) gives the verb the sense of ‘regretting’ (Mt 21:30; 2Co 7:8), or ‘repenting.’

Thus, repentance stresses the changed viewpoint or disposition, a rejecting of the past or intended course or action as undesirable. It is clear that the mission of John the baptist was to bring about a change of mind. The fundamental idea taught by the Scriptures is not that man must know sorrow, but rather that he must undergo a change, a change not merely of conduct but of the thinking and attitude.

Repentance means change of mind, transformation of the mind, change of thought and purpose.

A proper translation of the mission of John the baptist is: He came into all the region around the Jordan preaching submersion of reformation into a forgiveness of sins;

The Revolution of Consciousness is the FIFTH GOSPEL, we urgently need a radical, total and definitive change, and this is only possible through the Revolution of Consciousness. Intimate Self-Realization is only possible in isolated individuals with the help of adequate knowledge and methods. Such an intimate revolution can only occur within the individual and is in fact against the interests of Nature.

Symbolic Meaning to Henry Sulley's Temple

Symbolic Meaning to Henry Sulley's Temple

The squared circle has been a popular theme in the occult and in Alchemy for centuries and it still an important symbol within it. The square represents the physical world, because it represents the four elements, the four cardinal directions, the four seasons etc. The circle represents the spirit because it is infinite and it goes out in all directions. 

 In ICorinthians 6:19 and in II Corinthians 6:16 we learn that man's body is the temple or house of God

Ezekiel's Temple is a symbol of the spiritual body of man. when he attain it, he will never again leave. This enduring temple is built in the understanding of Spirit as the one and only cause of all things..

Here You can see a diagram of Henry Sulley's Temple it is a circle within a square 

Ezekiel 40-48:35. This section is in the tone of Love and it speaks of the city foursquare and the temple’s measurements.

The 4 corners of the square represents the 4 letter of the name of God YHWH Yahweh the divine name

The circle represents the fellowship of the believers and fellowship with God by sharing his divine nature 2 peter 1:4

The circle therefore represents infinite or the Pleroma 

A squared circle represents the perfection of spirit and flesh combined.

The altar is representative of the divine presence” - therefore it must be at the center

It represents the perfection of Man

The circle is the symbol of wholeness and completion

It is a symbol of the One becoming the Many without ever ceasing to be the One.

The Threefold Nature of Man

The Threefold Nature of Man
the flesh the soul and spirit

54 From Adam three natures were begotten. The first was the irrational, which was Cain's, the second the rational and just, which was Abel's, the third the spiritual, which was Seth's. Now that which is earthly is “according to the image,” that which is psychical according to the “likeness” of God, and that which is spiritual is according to the real nature; and with reference to these three, without the other children of Adam, it was said, “This is the book of the generation of men.” And because Seth was spiritual he neither tends flocks nor tills the soil but produces a child, as spiritual things do. And him, who “hoped to call upon the name of the Lord” who looked upward and whose “citizenship is in heaven” – him the world does not contain. (Extracts from the Works of Theodotus)

Man is a creation of the Demiurgus or the Elohim. He is formed from matter (hulê), receives a soul (psuchê) from the Demiurgus, and a spirit (pneuma) from Achamoth. The nature of man is thus a compound formed of three elements, Body, Soul, and Spirit.

Man has three natures spirit and soul and body

1 Thessalonians 5:23 May the very God of peace sanctify YOU completely. And sound in every respect may the spirit and soul and body of YOU [brothers] be preserved in a blameless manner at the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 He who is calling YOU is faithful, and he will also do it.

The “spirit” (Heb., ruach; Gr., pneuma) should not be confused with the “soul” (Heb., nephesh; Gr., psykhe´), for they refer to different things. Thus, Hebrews 4:12 speaks of the Word of God as ‘piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, and of joints and their marrow.’ (Compare also Php 1:27; 1Th 5:23.) As has been shown, the soul (nephesh; psykhe´) is the creature itself. The spirit (ruach; pneuma) generally refers to the life-force of the living creature or soul, though the original-language terms may also have other meanings.

The spirit is the mind of man the soul is the heart or emotions and of course the body is a physical nature

The “spirit” (Heb., ruach; Gr., pneuma) should not be confused with the “soul” (Heb., nephesh; Gr., psykhe´), for they refer to different things.

Definition: A Body is a physical or spiritual vessel. In other words a human or angelic body.

Definition: A Soul is a human body.

Definition: A Dead Soul is a dead body

Definition: A Spirit is a character, a personality. It is 'you'.

"Operating upon the brain [physical (body)], it [indwelling sin] excites the 'propensities' (the outward senses), and these set the 'intellect' [mental (spirit)], and 'sentiments' [moral (soul)] to work. The propensities are blind, and so are the intellect and sentiments in a purely natural state; when therefore, the latter operate under the sole impulse of the propensities, 'the understanding is darkened through ignorance, because of the blindness of the heart'". Ephesians 4:18

Man has three natures spirit and soul and body

The Flesh or hylics

hylics, also called somatics (from Gk σώμα (sōma) "body"),

An extension of the idea that flesh composes the visible, tangible parts of the body is the use of the word “flesh” to refer in a general way to the whole body. (Le 17:14; 1Ki 21:27; 2Ki 4:34) It is also used to refer to the person, or individual, as a human of flesh. (Ro 7:18; Col 2:1, 5

. “Flesh” is often used in the Bible to represent man in his imperfect state, ‘conceived in sin’ as an offspring of rebellious Adam. (Ps 51:5; Ro 5:12; Eph 2:3) In humans who are trying to serve God, ‘the spirit [impelling force emanating from the figurative heart] is eager, but the flesh is weak.’ (Mt 26:41) Within these servants of God there is a constant conflict; God’s holy spirit is a force for righteousness, but the sinful flesh continually wars against the spirit’s influence and exerts pressure to induce the individual to perform the works of the flesh. (Ro 7:18-20; Ga 5:17) The works of sinful flesh are contrasted with the fruitage of the spirit, at Galatians 5:19-23.

The Spiritual Man and The soulful.

The apostle contrasts the spiritual man with the physical man. He says: “But a physical [literally, soulical] man does not receive the things of the spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him.” (1Co 2:14) This “physical man” does not mean merely one living on earth, one with a fleshly body, for, obviously, Christians on earth have fleshly bodies. The physical man here spoken of means one who has no spiritual side to his life. He is “soulical” in that he follows the desires of the human soul to the exclusion of spiritual things.

Paul continues about the “physical man,” that he cannot get to know the things of the spirit of God “because they are examined spiritually.” Then he says: “However, the spiritual man examines indeed all things, but he himself is not examined by any man.” The spiritual man has understanding of the things God reveals; he sees also the wrong position and course of the physical man. But the spiritual man’s position, actions, and course of life cannot be understood by the physical man, neither can any man judge the spiritual man, for God only is his Judge. (Ro 14:4, 10, 11; 1Co 4:3-5) The apostle says by way of illustration and argument: “For ‘who has come to know the mind of Jehovah, that he may instruct him?’” No one, of course. “But,” Paul says of Christians, “we do have the mind of Christ.” By getting the mind of Christ, who reveals Jehovah and his purposes to Christians, they are spiritual men.—1Co 2:14-16.

James chapter 1 "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways" — The word "double-minded" is a translation of dipsuchos which signifies two-souled! One soul is for God, and one is for self! The double-minded man has feet in both camps. Jas 3:15 This wisdom is not one, from above, coming down, but is earthly, born of the soul, demoniacal!

Jude 1:19 These, are they who make complete separation, mere men of soul, Spirit, not possessing.

The Unknown God

Acts 17:23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

Justin Martyr says that men referred to Yahweh as "the completely hidden One."

The building of an altar to an unknown god indicated that the people of Athens desired to know God.

In his oration Paul said to the Athenians, “I found also an altar with this inscription, TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.” In intellectual consciousness what does this altar indicate? The dedication of an altar to the unknown God is an admission of ignorance, but it is often boasted of as indicative of tolerance and religious generosity. The broad-minded man with a devotional turn of mind points to his altar to the unknown God and says, “Although we know nothing about your omnipresent, spiritual God, this altar shows that we are not narrow; that we welcome all concepts of God.”

“An Unknown God,” thereby avoiding all cause for offense. At the same time, he awakened in his listeners a desire to know something of the real God, which their idol typified

The character of God as Absolute Being cannot be comprehended by the intellect. The Truth, therefore, makes a total denial of all beliefs about God of a temporal character. God does not require anything at our hands, being the source of all. Even personality is not recognized by the Divine Mind; he knows only unity and oneness in all men and all nations.

Spiritual Evolution

Spiritual evolution

Image result for Spiritual evolution bible

evolution--comes from the word evolve meaning to develop gradually.

The development obtained by a believer through accurate knowledge of the law of Christ. It is the result of the development of the divine Logos in mind. What we are and what we are to be come is the result of the evolving of our consciousness, and this state of mind or new awareness is the result of seed spirit-word sown in the mind.

God implanted His perfect word--developed this seed word in each true believer.

Jesus said: Look, the sower went out, he filled his hand (and) cast (the seed). Some fell upon the road; the birds came, they gathered them. Others fell upon the rock, and struck no root in the ground, nor did they produce any ears. And others fell on the thorns; they choked the seed and the worm ate them. And others fell on the good earth, and it produced good fruit; it yielded sixty per measure and a hundred and twenty per measure.

Thus spiritual evolution is the unfolding in consciousness of that which God has implanted in a believer.

the evolving of our consciousness is the transforming of our mind

Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Therefore spiritual evolution, is the unfolding of the Spirit of God into action. The mind of a believer is the garden of God, of which the seed is the spirit-word sown into our mind and heart. The Christ consciousness or Christ mind evolution in a believer is plainly taught in the Scriptures as the most important realization of every believer.

1 Corinthians 2:16 For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF YAHWEH, THAT HE WILL INSTRUCT HIM? But we have the mind of Christ.

Romans 8:9 However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.

Colossians 3:10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, 
11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.
12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 
13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 
14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.

Without some evidence in us of the Christ consciousness or the mind of Christ we are little better than animals. When through faith in the reality of things spiritual we begin conscious evolution there is great rejoicing; "we rejoice in hope of the glory of God."

The old man and the new man

The old man is the outward senses, the carnal mind, the thinking of the flesh, the ego or personality. The old man is separate in consciousness from God. This is a believer before he or she receives the new life that is in Christ.

We must crucify the old man and remove him out of our consciousness so that the Christ may be resurrected in us. This we do by the renewing of our mind.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind
and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him

The "new man" is born of the word of God.  A birth is a coming into a state of being. The "new birth" is the coming into a higher state of being. The realisation by the believer of his or her spiritual identity, the Christ consciousness the real seal.

The contrast between the old man and the new man is similar to that which Paul draws in 1 Cor. 15:45 between the “first man”, Adam, and the “last” man, Christ. Therefore I suggest that the “old man” here is a reference to our status in Adam; by baptism we pass from that status to that of the “new man”, Christ. Eph. 4:22-24 exhorts baptized believers to put off the old man and put on the new man- i.e. to live out in practice the change in status which occurred in baptism.

“The new man” is composed of both Jew and Gentile (Eph. 2:15; Col. 3:10,11)- connecting with how Gal. 3:27-29 explains that baptism into Christ likewise gives us a status of “in Christ” which thereby removes any difference between Jew and Gentile. If “the old man” refers to our status in Adam which has now ended, been crucified, then we need no longer be phased by the fact that no baptized believer manages to totally avoid sinning; none of us have put to death the old manner of life in totality. All our days we seek to respond to the change of status which has occurred, living appropriate to that change.

We must " put off the old man" (Eph. 4:22); and yet " ye have put off the old man" (Col. 3:9). Have we, or haven't we? In God's eyes we have, in that the new man has been created, and the old man died in the waters of baptism. But of course we are still in the flesh; and the old man must yet be put off. What happened at our baptism must be an ongoing process; of laying the old man to rest in death, and rising again in the newness of life. The Gospel 'instructs us to the intent that, having once and for all put away ungodliness (i.e. in baptism) and worldly lusts, we should live in a holy manner' (Tit. 2:12 Gk.). Having put these things off in baptism, we must live a life of putting them off.

Male and Female Demons The Gospel of Philip

Male and Female Demons The Gospel of Philip

The Gospel of Philip: 

The forms of evil spirit include male ones and female ones. The males are they which unite with the souls which inhabit a female form, but the females are they which are mingled with those in a male form, though one who was disobedient. And none shall be able to escape them, since they detain him if he does not receive a male power or a female power, the bridegroom and the bride. One receives them from the mirrored bridal chamber. When the wanton women see a male sitting alone, they leap down on him and play with him and defile him. So also the lecherous men, when they see a beautiful woman sitting alone, they persuade her and compel her, wishing to defile her. But if they see the man and his wife sitting beside one another, the female cannot come into the man, nor can the male come into the woman. So if the image and the angel are united with one another, neither can any venture to go into the man or the woman.
He who comes out of the world, and so can no longer be detained on the grounds that he was in the world, evidently is above the desire of the [...] and fear. He is master over [...]. He is superior to envy. If [...] comes, they seize him and throttle him. And how will this one be able to escape the great [...] powers? How will he be able to [...]? There are some who say, "We are faithful" in order that [...] the unclean spirits and the demons. For if they had the Holy Spirit, no unclean spirit would cleave to them. Fear not the flesh nor love it. If you fear it, it will gain mastery over you. If you love it, it will swallow and paralyze you.

in this part of the Gospel of Philip 65.1-66.7 the "evil spirit" and the "unclean spirits and the demons" are the passions of the flesh that is why Philip uses these expressions together "For if they had the Holy Spirit, no unclean spirit would cleave to them. Fear not the flesh nor love it. If you fear it, it will gain mastery over you. If you love it, it will swallow and paralyze you."

 thus unclean spirits are the thinking of the flesh and therefore we should not fear nor love the flesh only if we have the spirit of Christ (the Christ-Consciousness) can we fight against the flesh

male demons=wrath 
female demons=lust

The forms of evil spirit include male ones and female ones [evil spirits (thoughts and intents) are restricted to the “waters below” and therefore are male and female in form]. The males are they which unite with the souls which inhabit a female form [the physical female body], but the females are they which are mingled with those in a male form, though one who was disobedient [so these male forms were able to “hear the word” but fell out of the way - it seems to be more clearly explained below]. (Philip 46)

And none [who are “disobedient”] shall be able to escape them, since they detain him [“they do not go in yet hinder those who are from going in” this is about our personal battle between the spirit and the flesh] if he does not receive a male power [i.e. Christ in you”] or a female power [the “holy spirit”], the bridegroom and the bride [one needs both of these to unite in the bridal chamber (our heart) to conceive “regeneration” i.e. a son of God]. One receives them from the mirrored bridal chamber [the spiritual body (the image)]. When the wanton women [female demon] see a male [one who has the seed of Christ] sitting alone [not yet having received holy spirit (still using his own intellect and knowledge and not being guided by the spirit of truth)], they [the demons] leap down on him and play with him and defile him [they are able to subvert his mind towards the carnal nature]. So also the lecherous men [male demons], when they see a beautiful woman [one who has received holy spirit] sitting alone [has not yet received the seed of Christ (masculine seed) in them], they persuade her and compel her, wishing to defile her [they “wish to” but cannot for the holy spirit cannot be defiled – this one WILL eventually be drawn to and set-apart to Christ]. (Philip 47)

But if they see the man and his wife sitting beside one another [one who has both Christ (the masculine seed) in them and the holy spirit (truth and enlightenment of who and what you are) united as one in your heart] the female [demons] cannot come into the man, nor can the male [demons] come into the woman. So if the image [of God i.e. the heart of “man”] and the angel [holy spirit] are united with one another, neither can any venture to go into the man or the woman. (Philip 48) [Hence “What God has yoked together, let no man put asunder” – this is not the same as what men yoke together i.e. flesh to flesh – the Father yokes spirit to spirit (once you belong to Him it’s the end of the matter). Judas having not yet received holy spirit (true apprehension of who and what he is) was left vulnerable to the evil demon (the adversary which is that carnal nature which beguiles one into evil intent) who easily overcame him and used him for God’s own purpose – demons (evil thoughts and intentions) whether male (appealing to the brutish animal nature) of female (appealing to the emotions) are from within, they are the carnal and perverted nature of our subjective minds to the influences of others i.e. spiritual thievery and we all have these until they are destroyed (cast out of our hearts)]

Yahweh in the Nag Hammadi Library

Yahweh in the Nag Hammadi Library

73)  Jesus said, "The harvest is great but the laborers are few. Beseech the Lord, therefore, to send out laborers to the harvest."

When Jesus says "Beseech the Lord" he was referring to Yahweh

74)  He said, "O Lord, there are many around the drinking trough, but there is nothing in the cistern."

The Name

In the gospel of Philip and the Gospel of Truth we get a reference to the divine name

The gospel of Philip 

One single name is not uttered in the world, the name which the Father gave to the Son; it is the name above all things: the name of the Father. For the Son would not become Father unless he wore the name of the Father. Those who have this name know it, but they do not speak it. But those who do not have it do not know it.

it is the sacred tetragrammaton YHWH. We do not know how to pronounce this name, we call it Jehovah, or Yahweh.

The Jews and Christians did not in the second century speak the name of God

The Gospel of Truth

The name of the father is the son. It is he who, in the beginning, gave a name to him who came from him, while he remained the same, and he conceived him as a son. He gave him his name, which belonged to him—he, the father, who possesses everything that exists around him. He possesses the name; he has the son. It is possible for the son to be seen. The name, however, is invisible, for it alone is the mystery of the invisible about to come to ears completely filled with it through the father’s agency. Moreover, as for the father, his name is not pronounced but is revealed through a son. Thus, then, the name is great.

The unknown name of the Father, mentioned in the Gospel of Truth, turns out to be not so mysterious.

It is in fact stated in the text: "The name of the Father is the Son."

name, God's--To describe God is to give Him limitation, hence He could not be given a fairer designation than "I will be who I will be" This is without confines or bounds and it allows unlimited expansion in every direction.

"He Who Is" or "The One Who Is"

The Wisdom of Solomon 13:1 Truly vain are all men by [their] nature in whom there is not the knowledge of God: who, though they have seen the good things [of creation], do not know him that is.

The highlighted portion in Greek is τὸν ὄντα ("he who is") compare Rev 1:4,8; 4:8.

In the Nag Hammadi Library the divine name Yahweh is used in prayers and hymns the Deity is addressed as  "He Who Is" or "The One Who Is" "You-who-are". This is a literal translation of the divine name into English Yahweh means "He-Who-Will-Be" or "He-Who-Is"

In his fifth book of Stromata, Clement of Alexandria refers to some passages of the Hebrew Bible which present riddles. Among these, Clement includes a text that speaks about "the secret four-letter name, which was affixed to those who alone had access to the innermost sanctuary; the name is called Jave/Yave, which means the 'One who is and who will be'. Among Greeks, too, the name God contains four letters" (5.6.34,5).

In the first Apocalypse of James, Christ exhorts James to cast away the bond of flesh that encircles him, and continues: Then you will reach The-One-who-is. And you will no longer be James; rather you are The-One-who-is.

In the Gospel of the Egyptians (c. 150 CE), one reads: O glorious name, really truly, o existing aeon, Ieêouôa (ιιιιεεεεηηηηοοοουυυυωωωωαααα), his unrevealable name is inscribed on the tablet (...) the Father of the light of everything, he who came forth from the silence (...) he whose name is an invisible symbol. A hidden, invisible mystery came forth Ieouêaô (each vowel is repeated 22 times).

iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE oooooooooooooooooooooo uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Here in the Holy book of the Great Invisible Spirit or the Gospel of the Egyptians each of the vowels is written 22 times and there are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet

this means Ieou, or Yao is alpha and omega

The word Barbelo apparently comes from Hebrew Be-arba Eloha

The meaning of the Semitic/Aramaic name is uncertain ("God is in the four," "daughter of the lord," "mighty through God").

The name of Barbelo seems to be based on a form of the holy four-letter name of God within Judaism, and it apparently comes from Hebrew-perhaps ‘God (compare EL) in (b-) four (arb(a)," 

Barbelo comes "from the Hebrew baba' ‘eloh, ‘in the four is God'with an abbreviated feminine ‘o' added to make the name a feminine aspect of God.

The memorial, in its simplest form, is ehyeh asher ehyeh, "l will be who I will be." Asher, "who," the relative pronoun in this memorial, is both singular and plural, masculine and feminine.

Barbelo is feminine aspect of God, Barbelo is mother, wisdom and the holy spirit or active force.

Clearly we can see that the divine name YHWH is used in the Nag Hammadi Library being translated as "He Who Is" or ‘The-One-who-is’, ‘You-Who-Are’, which is the meaning of the word Yahweh "He Who Is "He Causes to Become or "I am The Existing One"


In the Apocryphon of John Yaldabaoth has two sons Elohim and Yahweh again this shows that Yaldabaoth and Yahweh are not the same person 

The Apocryphon of John:

The first ruler saw the young woman standing next to Adam and noticed that the enlightened afterthought of life had appeared in her. Yet Yaldabaoth was full of ignorance. So when the forethought of all realized this, she dispatched emissaries, and they stole life out of Eve.

The first ruler defiled Eve and produced in her two sons, a first and a second: Elohim and Yahweh.

Elohim has the face of a bear,
Yahweh has the face of a cat.

ln the BG and llt,l version il is Eloim who is the righteous one and rules over fire and wind, and Yave (IIl,l : € I ¡yr r ) is the unrighteous one and rules over water and earth (BG 62. 12- l8; lll,l 31.12-19).

This shows that Yahweh is not Yaldabaoth

The unknown name of the Father

The unknown name of the Father

Acts 17:23  For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

Justin Martyr says that men referred to Yahweh as "the completely hidden One." 

The unknown name of the Father, mentioned in the Gospel of Truth, turns out to be not so mysterious. 

It is in fact stated in the text: "The name of the Father is the Child." 

Indeed, the overarching theme of the text is the revelation of the oneness of Christian believers with the "Father" through the "Son" leading to a new experience of life characterized by the words "fullness" and "rest". 

The text's primary claim is that "since need came into being because the Father was not known, when the Father is known, from that moment on, need will no longer exist."

The tone is mystical and the language symbolic, reminiscent of the tone and themes found in the canonical Gospel of John.

The concept of the Name in Valentinianism has links with Jewish speculation on the Divine Name. The Valentinian liturgy preserved by Irenaeus makes the connection clear. In one of the baptismal prayers, the Name is explicitly identified with Iao (Hebrew Yaho) which is a variant of Yahweh (Irenaeus Against Heresies 1:21:3). A connection to Judaism is not all that surprising given the Jewish roots of both Christianity and Gnosticism.

Taken from the Wikipedia short and sweet.

Valentinus knew soul needs a Saviour - and we've come a long way from being afraid of the dark and its time to wake up, one and all.

The way with Jesus should be on everyone's mind. If you haven't entered the way with the Lord, you'll remain in a world of darkness imagining you're in the light.

We are all to become the Pleroma of God

We are all to become the Pleroma of God

Concerning the fullness, it is I.  I (the christ) was sent down in the body (of Jesus) for the seed that had fallen away. And I came down to their mortal model. But they did not recognize me, thinking I was a mortal. I spoke with the one who is mine, and the one who is mine listened to me just as you also who have listened to me today. And I gave him authority to enter into the inheritance of his fatherhood. And I took him the one who is mine up to my Father. They the Aeons were brought to completion filled with rest through his salvation. Since he was deficiency, he became fullness.  The Letter of Peter to Philip (Nag Hammadi Codex VIII, 2)

According to this text the logos or anointing spirit is the Fullness which came down at the baptism to fill Jesus with all the fullness of the Deity

So fill yourselves with Jesus 

All the fullness

The Greek word for "fullness" is pleroma - the same word is also found in Col. 1:19, regarding how all God’s “fullness” dwelt in Jesus. Although the Lord Jesus had human nature, He never sinned; and thus was full of the God’s personality and character. To know Jesus was to know God- for He was and is God’s Son, and indeed the perfect replica of Him in human form.

The fullness which is Christ’s- and His “fullness” is God’s fullness- is shared with us: “Of His fullness have all we received” (Jn. 1:16). In this sense the church, as the body of Christ, is “the fullness of Him that fills all in all” (Eph. 1:23; 4:13). 

Through knowing Christ, the believers are therefore “filled with all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:19 compare Colossians 1:9 2:10). So the fact that Jesus had “all the fullness of God” doesn’t make Him "God" Himself in person; because we will not become God Himself in person because we are filled with God’s fullness; any more than a son is his father. In the same way as Christ’s body after His resurrection was filled with the Spirit and nature of God- so will ours be (1 Cor. 15:49; Phil. 3:20,21).

The implication here, seems to be that those who listen to the word of Christ and are his own will also obtain the joy and fullness of the divine nature. Like Christ they will become fullness of the Deity they will be Elohim 

Joh 1:16 For we all received from out of his fullness, even grace upon grace.

Eph 1:22 He also subjected all things under his feet, and made him head over all things to the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills up all things in all..

Eph 3:19 and to know the love of the Christ which surpasses knowledge, that YOU may be filled with all the fullness of the Deity.

Eph 4:13 until we all attain to the oneness in the faith and in the accurate knowledge of the Son of God, to a full-grown man, to the measure of stature that belongs to the fullness of the Christ

Col 1:19 For it pleased the Father that for all fullness to dwell in him;

Col 2:9 because it is in him that all the fullness of the divine nature dwells bodily.

The fullness belongs to the Deity he has shared it with Jesus and us

Since Jesus is dwelling within us it is reasonable to assume that the fullness is to be found within us as well. This will take place in two stages the first is to manifest Jesus' character which we call the Christ consciousness. And the second stage takes place in the summer which we call the other aeon or the age to come

The Gospel of Philip

Those who sow in the winter reap in the summer. The winter is the world,¹ the summer is the other aeon (or age) Let us sow in the world so that we will harvest in the summer. Because of this, it is appropriate for us not to pray in the wintertime. What emerges from the winter is the summer. Yet if anyone reaps in the winter he will not harvest but rather uproot, as this method will not produce fruit. Not only does it [not come forth in winter], but in the other Sabbath also his field is fruitless.

Eph 3:19 and to know the love of the Christ which surpasses knowledge, that YOU may be filled with all the fullness of the Deity.

We like Jesus are to be filled with God fullness

2Peter 1:4 Through these things he has freely given us the precious and very grand promises, that through these YOU may become sharers in divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world through lust.

We will share God's divine nature

2Th 2:14 He called you to this through the good news we declare, so that you may acquire the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We shall share Jesus' glory

John 17:20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word;
21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.
22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one:
23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

We are to be made perfect in one Christ in us and the Father in Christ

In the Age to come we shall be one with God by sharing his divine nature and being filled with his fullness

It is not "One God in three Gods," and "Three Gods in One;" but one Deity in a countless multitude revealed in the memorial name, and give an account of in the mystery of godliness

One in many and many in One, One Deity who is all in all

This multitudinous manifestation of the one Deity - one in many, and many in one, by His spirit - was proclaimed to the Hebrew nation in the formula of Deut. 6:4, "Hear, O lsrael, YAHWEH our ELOHIM is the ONE YAHWEH;" that is, "He who shall be our Mighty Ones is the One who shall be." Certain Mighty Ones are promised to Israel - pastors according to YAHWEH's heart, who shall feed them with knowledge and understanding; - they will be spirit, because "that which is born of the spirit is spirit." He, the Spirit, the AIL, or Power of the universe, self-styled YAHWEH, is their Divine Father. His nature will be theirs; so that they will be consubstantial with Him, as all children are consubstantial with their parents. The Deity will then be manifested in the Sons of Deity; He in them, and they in Him, by the one spirit. And this company of sons, led to glory by the captain of their salvation, is "the ONE who shall be," or "the ONE YAHWEH."Dr. John Thomas Eureka volume 1 Deity Manifested in Flesh.
