Yashaya Counsels The Rich
And one day two wealthy men, merchants, approached Yashaya, and the one said unto him, "Hail, Lord, Good Master." But Yashaya quickly said unto him, "Call me not good, for One alone is the ALL GOOD, who is the Eternal Father over all."
And the other merchant brought forth a question and asked, "Master, what good thing shall I do in order to live long?" Yashaya answered, "Fulfill the Law of Humane Love and obey the Prophets."
But the man answered, "I have kept the law and do believe the prophets, is this all?" And then Yashaya said unto him, "Go, then, sell all thou hast and divide with the poor of the holy way, the true brotherhood of God, and follow me also."
But these words pleased the man not, and he looked sadly upon Yashaya, for he possessed much wealth. Then again Yashaya spake unto him, "How sayest thou hast performed the Holy Law and the prophets? For behold, many of thy own brethren are clad with dirty rags and dying from hunger, and yet thy house is full of much goods, none of which goeth unto them in great need." And the two rich men remained silent and said not a word, walking away from Yashaya, knowing quite well the words he spake were true.
And then Yashaya said unto Simon his disciple, "Indeed, Simon, it is very difficult for the wealthy to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, for the rich care-only for themselves, and despise greatly them that have not. For truly I tell ye this day, unless the rich share with the poor, and look to the needy in their despair, they cannot fulfill the Holy Law of humane love, nor shall they enter into the Kingdom of the Elect."
And Yashaya continued to journey from place to place, healing every kind of disease that Satan brought upon the earth and man, and even leprosy did Yashaya heal, and every infirmity, thus teaching the people the use of every herb God gave Noah to cure all manner of illness. And the people heard of his fame, and great multitudes gathered before him to hear his words and see his righteous works. And Yashaya from time to time would leave the crowds behind and go off into the wilderness and fast and pray, where Holy Angels would minister unto him.
The Pharisees Charge Yashaya with Blasphemy
And one day after Yashaya healed a man with palsy, and told him "thy sins are forgiven thee," the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason among themselves, that Yashaya speaketh blasphemies. They reasoned, Who can forgive sins, but God alone?
But when Yashaya perceived their thoughts, he looked upon them and said: "Why do ye reason this way in your heart? Can even God Himself forgive sins, if man repent not? Whether it is easier to say, 'Thy sins be forgiven thee;' or to say, 'Rise up and walk,' know ye that the Son of Man hath power upon earth to discern, and declare the forgiveness of sins; for any who put their faith in me and my law, their sins will be forgiven, and they shall become purified."
And many on hearing these words of Yashaya, glorified God, and were filled with the Spirit of Reverence, for they believed Yashaya to be the Son of the Holy Father.
Then another of the Pharisees approached Yashaya and said unto him, "Why teacheth thy disciples, 'God is not a jealous God'? Hath not Moses in scripture sayeth thus, even: have no other Gods before my face? Thou speaketh blasphemy against Moses and God from whom ye say ye art sent forth."
And Yashaya turned to the Pharisee and said unto him, "If ye know not the Son, ye know not the Father who sent the Son. Ye speak according to the ignorance ye live by, for thy god is one with Satan, inventor of the lie and every evil in man. My Father Who sent me unto the earthly sons of man is above earthly matters, wherein every deception and falsehood originated. Ye speaketh well when ye say thy god is a jealous god, for what hath the Maker of all things Who ruleth and owneth the universe reason for jealousy, He Who is all Love, and all Wisdom, and all Power, and all Grace? Thy god is over earth, my God over All Created Good; in your deception ye speak corruption unto the sons of man, for thy god is inferior and ignorant and knoweth not the Holy Things, nor cometh near to them. If ye understood Moses, ye would understand me, for Moses spake of me and the TRUE GOD, but ye listened to him not, but corrupted his words, for ye wish not truth yourselves and wish not others to find it either."
And the people nearby listened to Yashaya's words, but the Pharisees walked away murmuring to themselves, not satisfied with Yashaya's answer.
Yashaya Restores the Hearing of a Deaf Man
And Yashaya departed unto another village where he found a man who was deaf from birth. And this man did not believe in the sound of rushing wind, or the thunder, or the cries of the beasts, or the birds which do complain of their hunger and their hurt, nor did he believe that others heard all these things. Hearing the deaf man speak, Yashaya felt great pity, and he breathed into his ears a deep breath and spake a few words no man understood, and at that moment, the ears were opened, and the man did hear for the first time.
And now the man rejoiced with overwhelming gladness in the sounds he before denied were real. And he said unto Yashaya, "Now, I hear all things, great one; it is exceedingly joyful!" And Yashaya perceiving his great joy and happy to see the man glad, said unto him: "Yea, ye hear much, but ye hear not all things. For I say unto ye, canst thou hear the sighing of the prisoner in chains, and the slave in bondage to evil men, or the language of the birds or the beasts of the forest when they commune with each other? Or canst thou hear the voices and singing of holy angels before God? Think now, how much thou canst not hear and be thee humble in thy lack of knowledge and understanding, for I tell ye, earthly man hears only with ears of flesh, but the man of God knoweth what others hear not."
Yashaya Condemns the Ignorance of the Pharisees
And Yashaya moved on with his disciples following him, and they came upon a tax collector, named Levi. And Yashaya said unto him, "Follow me this day." And Levi left all behind, and did follow Yashaya. And Levi invited Yashaya to a great feast in his own house, and there gathered a great crowd of tax collectors and others... But the Scribes and Pharisees murmured against Yashaya's disciples, saying, "Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and evil doers, know ye not any better men?" But Yashaya hearing their complaining said unto them, "They who are whole need not a physician, but only they who are ill. Thus, I come not to call the saints and righteous, those of the holy way, the very elect, but I come to call sinners to repentance! For I tell ye truly, if all were as the Essene brotherhood, all would be doing the will of my Father-Mother in Heaven and all would be well."
And the Pharisees answered Yashaya and said unto him, "The same ye speak highly of, work against the law of Moses, for they offer not the blood sacrifice at the temple, nor keepeth the same Sabbath as the priests and the people. Yet, ye speak good and holy things of these people, whom we wish not to recognize. Yea, these same disciples of John fast much and make many prayers even as our own disciples doeth, and yet ye do eat and drink much . . ."
And Yashaya answered them saying, "Yea, John the Baptist came neither eating the flesh of animals, nor drinking strong drink, and did make many disciples, and yet, ye say of him, 'He hath a devil within.' And now, Lo, the Son of Man cometh also, like John, eating the fruits of the earth, and drinking the milk of the flock, and ye say, 'Behold, a glutton and wine bibber, a friend of publicans and evil doers.' Yea, ye say also, 'This one healeth by Satan and the power of Satan.' Thou condemnest the Son of Man for righteous works in the name of the True God, which thou knowest not, to hide the evilness of thine own wickeness and rotten works. Ye are like idols of stone; ears they have but hear not, eyes they have but see not, hearts they have but made of hard stone. Cease from speaking the self righteousness of your ignorant ways, speak not of holy things, when ye know not the only True God, nor the one whom he sent forth."
And Yashaya did teach his disciples by means of many parables, but the ears of the scribes and the Pharisees were stopped up, for they could not behold the truth Yashaya spake . . . .
And Yashaya departed from that place, and went into the mountains to a certain place with some of his disciples. And one of them said: "Master, teach us to pray according to thy wisdom, for many pray in different manners, strange to us." And Yashaya said unto them, "When thou prayest alone, enter into thy secret chamber, and after thou hast closed the door, pray to Abba Amma, Who is above and within thee, and thy Father-Mother Who seest all that is secret shall surely answer thee . . . . But when ye are gathered together, and pray in the common place of thy brothers and sisters, even the holy brotherhood, use not vain repetition, for your heavenly Parent knoweth what things ye have need of before ye ask them. Pray ye, therefore after this manner:
"'Our Father-Mother Who art above all in heaven and within every creature and thing: Hallowed be Thy sacred Name in twofold Trinity. In Wisdom, Love, Equity allow Thy Kingdom to come to all who love Thee. Let Thy will be done, as in Heaven, so in Earth. Give us day by day to partake of Thy Holy Bread, and the fruitage of the living Holy Vine. As Thou dost forgive us our trespasses, so may we be willing to forgive others who trespass against us. Shew upon us Thy goodness, that to others we also may shew the same. In the hour of temptation, deliver us from evil. For Thine are the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory: From the Ages of ages, Now, and to the Ages of ages to come. Amen."
And his disciples listened attentively as Yashaya spake unto them the holy words. And Yashaya continued saying unto them: "And wherever there are seven gathered in My Name, there am I in the midst of them; yea, if there be only three or two, and where is but one who prayeth in secret, I am with that one also. For truly I tell ye, to raise up the stone, and here I am.
"For in the fire, and in the water, even as in every living form, God is manifest as its Life and its Substance, for God is the Law, the Life and the Love of all things. He is in all, and all is in Him that obeys the Holy Word. "And seek ye the 14 fruits of the Holy Wisdom, even the Mother of every thing from Above, for the nature of good is within Her Laws, and it cleaveth to all who reach out for the True Vine of Life. "For I tell ye truly, had Adam partaken of Holy Wisdom in Eden, the Son of Man would not be in thy midst today, for the Holy Tree of Life was planted that man would know the goodness of God and not the evil of Satan. But now every thing must return unto its original root, for the world believeth the lie for the truth, as it was implanted in the minds of evil men, who loveth lawlessness and not peace.
"Seek therefore the virtues of good that ye may understand and identify the evil things of the world, for there exists no evil in the earth nor in the created marvels of God, but only the evil that man worketh in spirit and body according to the lusts and desires of his flesh. For the evil one tempteth man into sin, and then evil results. "But I tell ye, the Holy Law putteth off all evil if ye search after its power and wisdom. Seek ye then first the Kingdom of God and all else in the world shall be vanity unto you, for the truth sets free the righteous and breaketh the chain of bondage to sin. Yea, sin not, and evil shall find no place. Pray ye then after the manner I tell ye, that ye be spared the trials of Satan . . . ."
And his disciples delighted in Yashaya's words and continued astonished at his great wisdom and understanding of all things.
Forgive Thy Brother Seventy Times Seven Times
And Yashaya said unto them further: "If thy brother hath sinned in word seven times a day, and seven times a day hath he made amendment and was truly sorry, receive him as a brother in good faith."
But Simon said unto Yashaya, "Seven times a day is surely forgiving!"
And the Lord Yashaya answered and said unto him, "I tell thee also, unto seventy times seven, for even in the Prophets, after they were anointed by the Holy Spirit, utterance of sin was still found in them. I tell ye, therefore, Be ye considerate with one another, be tender, be ye pitiful, be ye kind, not to your own race or kind alone, but to every creature which is within your care, for ye are to them as Gods, to whom they look in their time of need. Be ye humane, for the Father-Mother in Heaven gave all creatures unto thy care from the very beginning.
"Love ye one another and every creature of God. Be ye also slow to anger, for many sin in anger which they repented of, when their anger was past, for anger is the sister of ignorance and ignorance the brother of every sin. Yea, learn ye patience and endurance that ye may not tire or grow weary of one another or the work set before you.
"Look unto the beasts of the field and learn their ways: when they awaken each morn, they look up to the heaven, and greet thy God, and in like manner offer prayer to their Creator. Nay; they complain not of anything, though they suffer much and hunger and thirst. These noble beasts rise above man in hidden qualities man knoweth not, and they teacheth man if man inquire. Learn ye the patience and courage of these beasts, who though they have no leader, tend to their needs and care for their young even as a good mother loveth her child.
"If ye look unto nature and her marvels everywhere, ye will always be encouraged, for God giveth unto the sons of man every creation under the Sun, to cheer his heart and bring gladness to his soul. For I tell ye truly, these beasts of the field sin not and know not sin; innocent are they of all evil, and woe to any man who causeth the least one of them anguish or pain. Therefore, I say unto ye, whenever thy heart is heavy with worry or sadness, look unto these noble creations for joy and gladness, walk ye into the forest and behold the trees and flowers, look ye at the mountains and the rivers, watch ye the flying creatures and how they happily sing unto the earth and all in it. Observe ye the Great Household of God, yea, thy sisters and brothers in every form; look unto them and they will receive thee and gladden thy hearts with much joy and peace. For above all else, learn ye to love one another, even as I have loved thee, and my Father in Heaven loved me. For the Holy Law teacheth the holy way of love, and no man knoweth the power of love, lest he keepeth the law in his heart....
Yashaya Rescues a Horse from a Wicked Master
And on another occasion, while Yashaya was traveling with his disciples over some mountains, they came upon a difficult path, very steep and dangerous. And there they found a horse that had fallen down the steep sides, for it was overladen with much weight. And the owner of the beast struck at it, till blood flowed forth.
And Yashaya seeing this sad sight, said unto the man, "Son of cruelty, why beateth thou thy beast? Seest thou not that it is too weak for its heavy load, and knowest thou not that it suffers much for thou delivering such painful blows?" And the owner of the horse answered Yashaya and said: "What hast thou to do with my horse? I may beat it as much as it pleaseth me, for it is mine own, and I bought it with a goodly sum."
Then Yashaya turned to his disciples and said for the second time, "See ye not how it bleedeth, and hear ye not also how it cries and laments?" But they answered and said, "Nay, Lord, we hear not the poor beast cry or lament."
And Yashaya was saddened at them, and said, "Woe unto you, because of the dullness of your hearts. Ye hear not how it lamenteth or waileth unto the heavenly Creator for mercy, but there be woe unto its owner, against whom it crieth and waileth in its pain. For no mercy shall he find, until he knoweth the Son of Man."
And Yashaya went unto the horse and did touch it, and the horse stood up, and its wounds were healed as if it were never beaten. But to the cruel man, he said: "Go now thy own way and beat thy horse henceforth no more, if thou also desireth to find mercy for thine own self. For I tell ye this day, no nobler beast liveth on earth, and every time ye strike a blow of death to these mine animals, ye strike down the Son of Man. And he who dealeth unjustly with God's Son, dealeth in sin against the Father-Mother in Heaven. For one day, ye shall be in need of mercy and rest even as this beast, but who shall offer it unto ye? Know ye better the Son of Man, lest ye be found wanting and so lose thy life. For with great mercy doeth the Eternal ALL suffer thy sins, lest He puts forth His Hand and wipes clean the surface of thy earth. Yea, know ye the power of mercy and all mercy shall be given unto ye in thy time of need." And the man took hold of his horse and continued on his way....
Yashaya Condemns Animal Sacrifice:
Shows It to Be from Satan and Not God
And after many other things were said and done, Yashaya returned to the city, and looked upon the innocent creatures of God awaiting slaughter as daily sacrifice in the temple at Jerusalem. And he said unto his disciples and many people that had gathered around them (for everywhere Yashaya went, crowds surrounded him to listen and hear his wisdom):
"Behold these poor innocent beasts of thy earth, they harm not themselves, nor man, nor any other creature. Yea, they eat the green vegetation of the field, sinless and without blood guilt they have remained since their creation. Faithful and obedient they remain to their masters in hope that humane feelings be their reward in life, but instead they receive every hurt and death at man's hand. Lo, the lust of ignorant and stubborn man brings them down in death and much blood, that men may satisfy the lusts of their own flesh. Such men have hearts, but know them not, for they have become like their idols of stone, hard and vain.
"Woe to such blasphemers who reject the Holy Law of the sacredness of all life! Woe to such blind guides with hearts of stone, who use their eyes to lust after things they need not nor are lawful unto them! For they transgress the Law of Moses to maketh themselves fat on the flesh and blood of innocent victims, that God commanded them not even since the beginning! Woe be unto this very temple built by human hands, for the Temple made without hands is here in their midst, but they see or hear not!
"For I come to end all sacrifice and bloodshed and tell ye, if ye cease not offering and eating of flesh and blood, the wrath of God shall not cease from you, even as it came to your fathers in the wilderness, who under Moses lusted for flesh, which they ate to their fullness, and were filled with rottenness, and the plague consumed them according to their evil desires.
"For I say unto you, Though ye be gathered together in my bosom, if ye keep not all my commandments, I will cast you forth. For if ye keep not the lesser revelations, who, I ask, shall give you the greater ones? For since time immemorial, God hath at no time requireth animal or human sacrifices, lest He be inferior to the Holy Law! Nor hast God permitted man or beast to devour one another for food, lest He be ignorant of His own Love! How then, do ye eat flesh and give sacrifices of blood according to the law of humane love?
,,Ye know not the True God, but worship the perverted god of thy world, even Satan the one and same father of the sword and bloodshed. For by this one, death entered into the world and death spread to all things, for all things are in bondage as slaves to the master of the lie. But I come to set free those imprisoned by chains of sin, and give forth my Holy Law again unto the nations that they may know the only True God of love and mercy. For my God above suffereth sin and error of men much, lest He put a swift end to the vanity of the world and cut off His Elect Seed.
"Be ye faithful to the complete law of God, lest ye stumble in thy evil ways and meet death as thy final reward. For he that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much, and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. So it is with the Holy Law, for the first truths you keepeth not, but seek after the greater. Seek ye first the laws of God and all else will be revealed unto you. No man may digest the solid food of God, lest first he taketh of the liquid, for my law is the water of life. Drink ye, like pure water, and all other mysteries of God will be opened to you, and then ye will know the True God and His Good Works.
"For ye desire to serve two masters, one good, one evil, and cannot, for either ye will hate the one, and love the other, or else ye will stick to the one and despise the other....Know ye then, thy true root, whether ye be good or evil, and then ye shall know the truth that giveth life and health. Ye cannot serve both the True God and Satan, for the True God is All Love and His Holy Law leadeth to All Life, there being no death in His Order and Household.
"But know ye that Satan is the god of death and bloodshed and also giveth to the people many unholy laws that the True God hateth and condemneth. Know ye not that the two cannot mix, but the inferior shall be done away with, for the Holy Law has served as judge over the living and the dead since the days of Adam and Eve. Hence, ye are they which justify yourselves before men and God, for God knoweth your hearts and your ways....
"For know ye, that the same Law and the Prophets were here until John and changeth not. Yea, even before the foundations of thy earth were laid, the Law was and always will be . . . Yea, it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away, than one tittle of the Law to fail its purpose. Keep ye the Law, then, and all other things will be added unto you, for there is no thing above the Law, and any thing which comes below the Law, is not perfect nor complete, nor is it from the True God of Love . . . ."
And the Pharisees heard all these sayings of Yashaya, and observed that he was speaking of them, for they lived according to doctrines of men and of the devil, and not the true law Moses hath given them in the wilderness, they being responsible for the lawlessness of animal sacrifice and flesh eating among Israel . . . .
Yashaya Blesses the Beasts and the Children
In the Holy Name of the True God
And Yashaya again departed from among the crowd and continued to work good towards all, and he proceeded to bless every beast and every child among the households of Israel, and did restore the sick and the dying to sound health again. Yea, everywhere Yashaya traveled, the people were aware of his mighty works and proclaimed him as the Son of God on earth. For there was not a man or a child that did not hear or see of his beneficent deeds, the young and the aged, the crippled and the lame, the blind and the deaf, yea even all of the animal kingdom, were aware of his presence and his healing power of true love. His radiance was of a bright nature, like that of Holy Angels, and the mere wave of his hand raced the healing forces of God throughout all the land. For Yashaya had at his side, myriads of angels to service the needs of the righteous and any man with faith that Yashaya was the true Son of God.
And many were the children that followed Yashaya by his side, listening with great interest and beholding the marvels that Yashaya worketh daily. And Yashaya loved the little children dearly and did say much unto them concerning the wonders of nature and the creations of God. And never was Yashaya too busy not to notice their presence, and he did bless them and their animals and saith:
"Obey thy parents on earth as to the Laws of God, and thy All Parent in Heaven will bless both thy parents and thyself and thy life will be long and peaceful upon this earth. And as ye little children do cherish thy beasts ye keepeth for pleasure and company, so shall I cherish each one of ye forever, for innocent and pure art the animals and innocent and pure as little children must all men become, lest they not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. For who among these little children doth not love the creatures of God, they so own and keep with kindness? Yea, unless ye all remain as innocent as these beloved children, ye shall never fulfill the Law of Love. Know, then, ye parents of young ones, raise up thy children in the Holy Law of the Lord, and ye shall raise them up to salvation and everlasting life, for unless ye impart the humane love of the holy law when yet thy child is young and innocent, the unholy law of Satan enters in and sours the sweetness of undefiled waters, and every cruel thing cometh into being."
Yashaya Rebukes the Cruel Treatment
Of a Sickly Creature of God
And one day as Yashaya traveled through a small village with some of his disciples, he noticed a crowd of no-gooders, those of a certain kind who search for evil things to do. And they were torturing a sickly cat, which they had decided to shamefully treat, for they could find nothing better to use idle time, they being lazy and unworthy young men.
And Yashaya seeing this mean cruelty, commanded them to leave off from tormenting the poor beast, and he began to reason with them, so as to make them realize their evil, but they listened not, for the Holy Law was not found in them, but only hardness of heart; and they reviled Yashaya for his interference with their pastime.
At this Yashaya said unto them: "This good earth which my Father-Mother made for joy and gladness, ye have made into the lowest regions of hell with thy evil deeds of violence and cruelty. Why doeth the stronger always prey on the weakest? I tell ye, since Satan cursed the Holy Creations of God, no thing is safe in the earth from unholy men, till the Son of Man cometh in all his glory and free every creature from the curse of dread and of fear."
And at hearing these words the young men fled from before his face, but one did return and defied Yashaya further, and spake harsh words, yea, even threatening Yashaya with harm. Hence, not responding to the sound counsel of Yashaya, Yashaya put forth his hand, and the young man's arm withered.
And the next day, the mother of the young man came unto Yashaya, and prayed that he would restore her son's withered arm. And Yashaya, discerning that the woman was of good heart, and the young man without maturity, spake unto them of the law of love and the unity of all life in the One Household of God. And they both listened unto Yashaya's words with sincere hearts.
And Yashaya continued, saying to them also: "As ye do in this life to your fellow creatures, who are thy lesser brothers and sisters, so shall it be accounted to you in the life to come. For I tell ye truly, Satan charges all evil against thy souls, and seeketh to destroy the whole of mankind through sin. Therefore I tell ye, work only that which is humane, so that thy good accounting can overrule the evil charges Satan shall surely bring forth, for no soul shall inherit the resurrection of life, whom this one claimeth as seed. For the evil one bringeth many into sin, but judgeth that sin also, for the wages of evil are death, and Satan giveth no good rewards but only bad. Yea, all those whosoever liveth by the unholy law of this one, condemneth his own soul, for he is accused daily and without pity.
Search ye, therefore, the wisdom of the True God, which leadeth to life and mercy for all creatures, great and small, weak and strong, and the evil one will flee from you, for where light dwelleth, darkness enters not."
And the young man believed the words of Yashaya and did confess many sins unto him, and Yashaya again stretched forth his hand, and healed the withered arm of the young man. And many people glorified God, in that He had given such great power unto the Son of Man.
Satan Responsible for Every Disease;
The Unholy Law of Lust
And Yashaya departed into another place and continued to demonstrate the healing power of the Holy Law. And he opened the eyes of the physical and spiritual blind, and even cured men possessed with demons, left for mad, for it was Satan's unholy laws that brought forth every manner of disease and infirmity on earth, even called by name in the Holy Book of Solomon. But Yashaya healed with the power of nature and did use the herbs and the stones and the pure waters of every stream, healing much sickness among the people, and instructing the people in the healing property of every fruit and grass which God giveth to man for long life and perfect health.
And when Yashaya saw the multitudes, he was moved with deep compassion for them, because they were without knowledge of the Holy Laws of God, but were in bondage to the unholy laws of lusts, even unto Satan the evil one....It was then he said unto his disciples, "The Harvest is truly plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray ye therefore, the Lord of the Harvest, that he will send forth more laborers into his Harvest. For I tell ye, the blind guides leadeth the sons of men into death, for how doeth the blind leadeth the blind in any other manner? Yea, they are the children of darkness, wherein no light can dwell, and they taketh many with them into the depths of hell, for they speak only according to the lie, the unholy laws of Satan, inventor of every disease and plague."
And then Yashaya's disciples prayed for more laborers to be sent into the Harvest, for they understood Yashaya's words, that the Pharisees and scribes were misleading the multitudes of Israel, they being many, but the True Prophets being few....
And then his disciples brought him two small baskets of bread and fruit and a pitcher of fresh water. And Yashaya set the bread and the fruit and also the water before the multitude, and they all did eat and did drink and were filled. And the disciples marvelled, for each had enough and to spare, and there were four thousand among them numbered....And Yashaya said unto them: "So also, it shall be with the Harvest, for although the Harvest is indeed plentiful, few laborers shall gather in the Harvest, and yet shall all be filled and satisfied, for none shall hunger, nor thirst for righteousness, that shall not be fed, for out from a little shall a great multitude be fed, and out from a great multitude shall the little be replenished.
"For know ye, the very angels of the Lord are the reapers of the Harvest and they leadeth the holy ones to every seed of God, spread out over the earth, even as the four holy winds above. Yea, they maketh the light to shine forth, and the sheep see the light and knoweth it cometh from God. For ye are the light bearers of the holy way. By thy light, the roadway shall be made clear for the righteous seed to follow thee; henceforth, let thy light shine forth and be seen, for no man covereth a lantern with a sack, lest the light be hidden.
"Know ye, this day, ye are the light of the world, and my sheep looketh to thy light. Feed my sheep even as the Good Shepherd hath commanded ye, for mine angels shall deliver unto thee many in want of the Christ and his Truths. Feed my sheep, yea, feed my little lambs." And all those listening to Yashaya's words departed, shouting praises of joy to God, for all they had heard and seen.
The Sermon on the Mount
And it came to pass that one day, Yashaya seeing the multitude awaiting him, went up into a mountain . . . And the 12 chosen as apostles came unto him also . . . And Yashaya was seated, and lifted up his eyes on his disciples and said unto them:
"Blessed in Holy Spirit and in spirit are the poor of the Brotherhood, for they are the Elect of God, and theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven, wherein they will rule over the sons of man as Kings and Priests.
"Blessed are they that mourn because of all the evil that worketh against the innocent creatures of God, for they shall be comforted.
"Blessed are they who do keep the humane law of love, for they are the meek who shall inherit the earth.
"Blessed are they who do hunger and thirst after all that is righteous and holy, for they shall find Truth and be ever filled.
"Blessed are the merciful; for they shall obtain and grant mercy, even as gods.
"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall know and see God.
"Blessed are the peace-makers, for they shall be called the children of light.
"Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for to the Kingdom of God do they belong....
"Woe unto you that are rich, but greedy-for ye have received in this life your only consolation.
"Woe unto you that are full and share not-for ye shall hunger always.
"Woe unto you that laugh now at the Holy Law-for ye shall mourn and weep.
"Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you-for so did their evil fathers to the false prophets.
"Woe unto the Godless ones, who have no hope, but depend on things that will not happen!
"Woe unto you, whose lust burns like fire in ye, for it shall be insatiable!
"Woe unto you who love intimacy with womankind and marry for unlawful relations, for ye defile the temple of God.
"For truly I tell ye, today such ones will undergo judgment in their lifetime and reap whatsoever they deserveth according to the unholy laws of their god, for Satan punishes the evil seed of the harvest and condemneth their souls to destruction."
And Yashaya continued to say unto his disciples: "Lo, ye are the only light of the world, for gross darkness covers the earth as the waters cover the sea, for every nation of men needeth the Holy Law of God, the Light of Salvation and Life. So let thy light shine forth before men of righteous heart, that they may see thy holy works and glorify thy All-Parent Who is in heaven.
"For think not that I am come to destroy the Holy Law or the Prophets or to replace them with new things. Nay, I come to interpret the Law and demonstrate the power of the Law. Truly I say unto you, the Holy Law is Perfect and Superior to every law of man and devils, for no thing can test the Law and succeed, in that the Law testeth all things and proveth all things inferior; for the Law judgeth man right or wrong, justly and in wisdom of All that is Holy and Pure, wherein all mercy, all love and all power by the grace of God separates the good from the evil, that man may be able to choose the good from the evil and know the right from the wrong, he being a free being and willing subject unto God or Satan.
"This is why I say unto you, Behold, One greater than Moses is here in thy midst, and I give unto you the Highest Law, the perfect and complete law, nay, not a new law, but an old law even as Adam and Enoch and Noah did receive. Yea, this law did the Prophets and Elect believe, and it continued up till John; it changeth not, but remaineth true in form and detail, even this Law of Love shall ye obey.
"Know ye that my holy remnant among men, even of every nation, receiveth my law and do give it unto their sons and their sons' sons, even as the Holy Brotherhood of My Elect which ye knoweth sent John forth among sinners. Know ye also, they who believe and obey my Holy Laws, surely save their souls, and they who obey not, lose them.
"Ye have heard that it hath been said many times, Thou shalt love thy neighbors and hate thine enemies. But I say unto those, which hear my voice, Love your enemies, and do good to them which hate you. Also, bless them that curse you, and pray for them which spitefully use you. Only in this way, ye may be called the children of light, and followers of the holy way.
"For does not your Parent Who is in heaven, maketh the sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sendeth the rain on the just and the unjust alike? For if ye love them only which love you, what reward have ye? For sinners also love those that love them. And if ye work good to them only which work good to you, what reward have ye? For sinners even work the same.
"And if a life desire be unto thee, and it turn thee from the light, cast it out from thee, for it is better to go through life possessing the light of truth, than losing it, and be cast into the outer darkness, where there is no light or truth.
"Be ye therefore, complete in the Holy Law, even as your Parent Who is in heaven is complete and all perfect, and so giveth the Law to ye....For only the Law leadeth to life and health and peace, but all else leadeth to sickness and sorrow and death. Hold back not the light, yea, feed my sheep."
And Yashaya continued, saying: "Take warning, that ye do not your alms before men, only to be seen of them; otherwise ye have no reward of your heavenly Parent, Who knoweth the hearts of men and every secret thing. But when thou givest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth, and take ye notice that these alms may be secret; and the Secret One which seeth in secret shall bless thee openly.
"And I say unto you, Except ye fast from the world and its evil ways and every lust, ye shall in no wise ever find the Kingdom; and except ye keep the seventh day Holy and honor the same Sabbath as thy forefathers the Prophets, ye shall not see the Father-Mother in heaven. For even as it is written, some shall not follow the orders of Uriel and they shall keep the Sabbath unto the sign of the full moon and sin, neglecting the appointed times of the sun and the seasons, and they shall lead astray many in observing the holy days; and the Sabbath will be profaned; for it is written by the hand of Enoch the holy calendar of Mine Elect to time immemorial.
"Also, lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where decay and rust corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal; but rather, lay up for yourselves treasure in heaven, where neither rust nor rot doth corrupt. For surely where your treasure is, there will your heart be also, for out of the heart cometh forth all desire for good or for evil things.
"For truly I tell ye, the world liveth without hope of better things, but look only to the morrow for that which they do not today. Yea, the vanities of the world are as the sands of the desert and just as lonely and empty. But whosoever placeth all hope on me shall not come to disappointment but be satisfied and filled, for I am the Hope of the world, the Holy Promise of better things for those of the Pure Oblation. Hope ye, then, in me and my law and ye shall see life eternal in all its fulfillment and glory. Yea, shepherd my flock and give unto them the All-Hope, even as I have given unto you. Nurse ye my little lambs, even every one thirsting and hungering for the Hope and the truth that leadeth to life."
Yashaya Tells of the Origin of the World
And one of Yashaya's disciples asked him, saying, "Lord and Master of all wisdom from above, tell us, please, the origin of the world, is it as the philosophers say it is?"
And Yashaya said unto him and all the others who had open ears, "Truly I say unto ye all this day, things are not always as they appear to the one beholding, for one says the world came into being by itself, without a god and without a creator, and another says the world came into being by fate, and still another says by providence, but I tell ye, all three speak not the word of truth, as not one speaks of the true origin of the world, for no man knoweth of the origin, lest the Son of Man revealeth the mystery."
And Yashaya revealed the mystery only unto his disciples in secret, and when they heard the mystery, they were astonished. And Yashaya said unto them, "Speak not this mystery to any man, lest he seeketh the all-truth and be of the children of light, for such is not for the unwise of the world to behold."
The Eyes, the Lamps of the Body
And Yashaya continued teaching the multitude surrounding him, and they listened attentively to all he spoke. And he said unto them:
"Know ye, the lamps of the body of man are the eyes; if therefore thy sight be clear and perfect, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eyes be dim or shut and perceiveth not the light, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. And how great is that darkness, that Satan bringeth upon them who reject the light!
"For I tell ye, Satan blindeth the minds of the unbelievers that the light reacheth not their eyes, for many wonders doeth the evil one work to mislead and deceive the faithless ones. But the sheep knoweth the light from the darkness, and they cometh out of the darkness into the light, for they belong not to Satan's harvest. Yea, the righteous seed knoweth their own root and listen to the good shepherd whenever he calleth them by name.
"Therefore I say unto you, Be not over-worried for your life, as to what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; not yet for your body, as to what ye shall put on. For is not the life you received freely, more valuable than food and the body more so than clothing? For what shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and yet lose his life?
"I tell ye this, Behold the fowls of the air; for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Parent feedeth them all . . . Consider- also the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin. And yet I say unto you, Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Yea, observe ye the patience and endurance of every creature of God and ye shall learn of the true value of thy life and its worth, for the world looketh after things the body needeth not, and humankind is made slaves unto Satan's ignorance, for after every lust, man striveth in vain and hastens to his grave.
"Know ye not the All-Parent seeth thy ways by day and by night, and knoweth what thou needeth for thy health and thy body and thy everlasting life? O ye of little faith, I tell ye again, be not over-worried, saying 'What shall we eat or drink, or how shall we be clothed?' For all these things the unlearned seek and are anxious for them, and on account of their anxiety, they eat and drink at the table of demons. For I tell ye truly, and believe, Satan yields a sword of seven evils, and the sword is the father of all.
The mind conceiveth through Satan, and brings forth bloodshed, first; ruin, secondly; tribulation, thirdly; captivity, fourthly; dearth, fifthly; panic, sixthly; and destruction, seventhly.
"Seek ye not, then, of Satan's evils; share not his table, decked with rich foods, taken by the sword, where life has been taken and blood has been spilled. Eat ye the simple foods of the field, that are lawful unto ye. Neither drink ye the product of the vine, and lose thy senses, for whosoever drinketh wine no longer owns his soul, but giveth it unto Satan for every foul deed. Drink ye the waters of life, and every pure drink of the fruitage of trees, and touch ye not the strong or sour drink that leadeth to sin.
"Worry not for the morrow, for each day bringeth enough blessing for the righteous man of God, lest ye put thy God to the test and sin greatly against His Holy Laws....For if ye seek first the Holy Law of the Kingdom of God, ye shall know what the righteous man is, and every other thing shall be added unto you.
"For truly I tell ye, look not and worry not, where there be no need, for faith giveth all unto the patient of God, for sufficient unto one day at a time is the evil and the needs thereof. Why do ye seek in advance, such things, when thou hast yet to finish this day before ye? Seek them not, but live accordingly to thy needs of the hour. Therefore, have ye faith in my words, for without faith, it is impossible to know thy All-Parent Who is in heaven. For they who doubt the Son of God, know not the Father nor the Mother, and are without faith and without hope and already as if dead."
Judge Ye Not, Lest Ye Be Judged
"I tell ye also, to Judge not, that ye be not judged, for only the Son of Man judges the soul of each man according to his works and his knowledge. For how are ye to judge a wiser man than thyself, if this man understandeth the Holy Law, and ye do not? For surely the ignorant, without wisdom from God, judgeth the righteous evil, and the evil righteous, for if a man knoweth not his own root, how shall he judge another?
"Let this man first come to know his own soul, before he passeth judgment on his brother, lest he defile the Holy Law and himself. For the law is judge unto all, and no man can place himself above the law, lest he sin. Thus, I say unto ye, the law is holy; give it not to the unworthy, neither cast these truths before the wicked, lest they trample them, like precious pearls, under feet of unknowing swine, and do turn again and rend you.
"Yea, even as the evil one did entertain the impossible thought and said, 'I shall raise my throne above the Holy Law and be greater than the Eternal All;' and every evil came unto the world. Be ye not like Satan, who deceiveth minds and corrupted God's Holy Law, dreaming impossible dreams that prove every evil and lie cometh forth from unholy men and demons. For the Law is perfect and true and any man whosoever deviates from the law, departs from the light and entereth into all darkness.
"If ye truly seek the truth and the fine pearl of salvation, ask humbly before thy God and it shall be given you; be ye humble in heart and in spirit, and all holy things shall be added unto you. For what brother among ye, asketh God for mercy and receiveth it not, and what sister among ye, asketh God for modesty and receiveth it not, so shall every fruit of the Spirit be given unto ye, if ye ask with humble heart.
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God and ye shall be blessed of God and be children of Light. Therefore, I tell ye also, all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them, and what ye would not that any creature should do unto you, do ye not unto them-for this is the Law of Love that the Prophets before me spake unto your forefathers. Keep ye this law and ye will find eternal life, for no other law is greater than love, for the law is love unto them obeying its sayings.
"Yea, enter ye in at the holy gate to life, for the beginning of the road is the holy law and narrow is the gate unto it, whereby only the righteous shall enter in. However, few there be that find the way, for wide is the gate unto death, and broad is the road that leadeth to wickedness and many go in and return not."
And Yashaya continued to say many other things to the disciples on the mount, and great was the number who heard his words.
Yashaya Warns of False Prophets Who Will Twist His Words
And Make a Lie of Truth
And he went on saying to them:
"Do ye beware of false prophets, who indeed come unto you in sheep's clothing, pretending to be innocent and harmless as sheep, but inwardly are ravening wolves, with appetites lusting after the blood and flesh of innocent creatures. Yea, their hands are dripping with blood and they boast in their evil and say it is good and deceive many at the entrance of the gate. Ye shall know them by their works, for though they speak love, they give only hate and by their fruits ye shall readily know their true root-for it is they who call truth a lie, and the lie, truth.
"For do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? So shall it be, that every good tree bringeth forth holy fruit, but a corrupt tree bringeth forth only evil fruit. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know the good from the evil. Beware lest ye be misled and find not the tree of life....
"For many will say to me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy Name . . . And in thy Name done many wonderful works? But I will say unto them, 'I never knew you: depart from me, false witnesses, ye that work only evil things."
And Yashaya said unto the people many other things as written for a testimony unto all nations. And when he had finished his sermon on the mountain, the people were astonished at his great perception of all things, for Yashaya taught them as one appealing to reason and the human heart, and not as the scribes and the Pharisees, who taught only by blind authority.
Yashaya Upholds the Pure Oblation
And Clean Diet of Man and Beast
And it came to pass, in the course of Yashaya's travels, he came upon a place near Tiberias where can be found seven wells, and there a young man brought live rabbits and pigeons, that he might eat as food with his companions. And Yashaya beholding the young man, looked upon him with much concern and said unto him:
"I do perceive thou hast a good heart and God shall surely give thee the light of the law. But knowest thou not that God in the beginning gave man the fruits of the earth for food, and did not make him lower than the ape, or the ox, or the horse, or the sheep, that he should kill and eat the flesh and blood of his fellow creatures?
"For in the beginning all beasts of the field and fowl of the air and the fishes of the sea, were as the ape, the ox, the horse, and the sheep-eating the green vegetation of the earth. But ye believe that Moses commanded such creatures to be slain and offered as a sacrifice unto God and eaten. Ye believe wrongly; ye do not know of temple oblations; for at no time did the True God delight in or demand flesh and blood offerings, but only the Pure Oblation--the unbloody sacrifice of man's obedience to His Holy Law.
"For Abel offered up the grains and fruits of the earth, but God required only Abel's keeping the holy law: for the pure oblation is from the heart of man, that he seeketh after truth and righteousness and pure worship of the Eternal All.
"But I tell ye: Satan, the evil one, maketh the truth a lie, and giveth to the sons of man, flesh and blood, the burnt offering, the unholy law of evil doers, things that my Holy Father hateth and abhorreth. Know ye not, before ye standeth a one greater than even Moses! Yea, even the holy one, who Moses spake of is here and restoreth the truth of the law, that all may for a certainty know that God is True and every man whosoever keepeth not the Holy Law is a liar.
"For I tell ye, the holy law of Moses and Adam are one; even as my Prophets spake unto Israel, I speak. The Holy Law changeth not, but evil men speak according to their desires of the flesh and lust after things unlawful. For of that which ye offer unto God in purity, ye may eat of freely, for it is lawful, but of that kind which ye offer not in purity, shall ye not eat. The hour cometh when all sacrifices and blood feasts shall cease, and ye shall again worship God according to holy law and a pure oblation."
And the young man marvelled at Yashaya's words, for he knew not the likeness of them at any time, and he said unto Yashaya, "Ye speak much truth, I knoweth not before this day. Please, Lord, continue, I do believe ye come in the spirit of Moses."
And Yashaya said unto him, "Ye listen well, may all peace be added unto ye. Now, let these innocent creatures go free, that they may rejoice in God and bring no blood guilt to any man."
And the young man did as Yashaya told him, and did set the rabbits and pigeons free. And Yashaya helped the young man break their bonds and destroyed their cages.
But lo, the frightened creatures feared lest they should again be taken captive and moved not away from them. But Yashaya spake unto them in a certain way, and told them they were free to move on. And the creatures of God did indeed obey Yashaya's voice and quickly departed in all gladness, free again to continue life. And the young man and some of his companions stayed on to listen to Yashaya's words.
And at that same time as they sat by the well . . . Yashaya stood up and cried out for all to hear: "If any are thirsty, let them come unto me and drink, for I will give to them of the waters of life freely. For they who believe in me, out of their hearts shall flow rivers of water, and that which is given unto them, shall they give even unto others with power, for their truth shall be as living waters to all that thirst, like a well from God, springing up into everlasting life for all that obey the Holy Laws."
John the Baptist Inquires of the Christ:
Is Told Yashaya Is the Promised One
And it came to pass that John the Baptist was inquiring of Yashaya, asking if he were the one that the holy prophets spoke of for a certainty, or would there be another. And Yashaya's answer was:
"Behold, John my beloved, the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and to the poor the holy law is preached." And John did know for sure, that Yashaya was the Holy One he had prepared the way for. And John's heart was glad and he rejoiced in the good news of the Christ and his soul was satisfied, and he offered words of praise to God in the Heights and thanked God for his Kindness and Grace upon earthly man.
And Yashaya told his disciples of John, saying, "For I say unto you, Among those that are born of woman, from Adam until John, there is not a greater humane prophet than John the Baptist. And yet, I say unto you, whichever one of you comes to be a child of God, shall acquire the Kingdom and shall be greater than John." And many people heard Yashaya's words, but the Pharisees and some others rejected these words, being not baptized of John, and they became agitated at Yashaya's goodness.
Yashaya Sends Forth His Apostles
Unto Israel and the Nations
And Yashaya gathered unto himself the Holy Twelve, even his apostles after his Name, that he might send them forth unto Israel. And the names of the Holy Twelve who stood for the 12 tribes of Israel are these: Peter, called Cephas, for the tribe of Reuben; James, for the tribe of Naphtali; Thomas, called Dydimus, for the tribe of Judah; Matthew, called Levi, for the tribe of Gad; John, for the tribe of Ephraim; Simon, for the tribe of Issachar; Andrew, for the tribe of Joseph; Nathanael, for the tribe of Simeon; Thaddeus, for the tribe of Zebulun; Jacob (James), for the tribe of Benjamin; Jude, for the tribe of Dan; Philip, for the tribe of Asher; and Judas Iscariot, who was among the disciples, but was not an Apostle; and also Barsabbas and Matthias were present with them.
Then, Yashaya in like manner called forth 12 others to be Prophets from among the Holy Brotherhood, the Essene Elect, saints, men of light, to be with the Apostles and shew unto them the hidden things of God. And their names were Hermes, Aristobulus, Selenius, Nereus, Apollos, and Barsabbas; also, Andronicus, Lucius, Apelles, Zachaeus, Urbanus and Clementos.
And then Yashaya called who should be Evangelists, and 12 who should be Pastors. A four-fold 12 did he call....And many others he would send unto the people of the nations, that they might hear also the truths of the righteous Brotherhood.
And after a time, Yashaya went up into a mountain and prayed and did meditate on the good work ahead, for the time had arrived to make ready many disciples in truth of the holy law, for they would be sent out into the world as testimony to the holy way of life. And Yashaya would give them power against unclean spirits and demons, and physical health reform.
Yea, a fourfold 12 did Yashaya call forth and prepare, that he might send them first to the tribes of Israel, unto each four. And Yashaya spake many things unto his chosen ones for the missions ahead, and every mystery of the holy way was revealed unto them. And the chosen ones accepted the calling, and listened to every word Yashaya spake unto them, for Yashaya promised to be with them in all their trials and tribulations and in all their rejoicing in the teaching of the holy way.
And after a time when all had been chosen and made ready by instructions of Yashaya, they all together stood around the Christ, dressed in white linen robes, even assembled to be a holy priesthood unto God....
Thus, these fourfold 12 Yashaya did send forth and granted them every authority, saying: "I will that ye be 12 apostles, with your companions, for a testimony unto Israel. Therefore, Go ye first unto the cities of Israel, and to the lost sheep of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying unto those men with hearing ears, The Kingdom of Heaven is nigh and in your midst. And even as I have baptized you in water, so also, baptize ye them who have faith and believe. For ye are given power to anoint and heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, cast out devils, and even raise the dead if need be.
"Remember, freely ye have received, so also freely give in turn. Accept no money for thy service, lest ye insult the Christ, who sent ye forth. Also provide neither gold, nor silver, nor precious metal in your own purse, nay, nor scrip for your travels, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves, for the workman is truly worthy of his food and shall be provided for wheresoever he goeth.
"And eat all that which is given unto you by strangers, but of that which is gotten by bloodshed, by the taking of life, touch nor eat not, for it is not lawful to you. Nor sit ye with them who eat such things, lest ye be counted unworthy by the law.
"Be ye also wise as serpents and harmless as doves. Be ye always humane and innocent, and undefiled before God. The Son of Man is not come to destroy, but to save, nor has he come to take life of man or beast, but to give life to body and soul. For I tell ye truly, fear not them which can surely kill the body of flesh, the outer garment of man, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him who is able to destroy both body and soul in Gehenna.
"For the evil one seeks to destroy the Elect of God; even as Adam was sought after, so shall ye be sought after and tempted. Be ye not taken in by smooth talk or promises of glory, even as Adam was led astray and many prophets, for this one seeks only that ye be blotted out of the book of life; be on guard therefore, lest ye be fooled and transgress the Holy Law. Whosoever therefore shall confess the truth before men, them I will confess also before my Parent Who is in Heaven. But whosoever shall deny or pervert truth before men, them will I also openly deny before my Parent Who is in Heaven.
"For verily I tell ye, they who taketh not their stake and follow me, are not worthy of me, for he that findeth his life, shall lose it; and he that loseth his life for my sake, shall surely find it again; for I come to conquer all death for all time, and I am the love, the life and the law of God. They who believeth in me shall never know death at all, for death is the end for wicked men, but has no power over the righteous."
And after these and many other things were spoken and said, Yashaya appointed two and 70 also, well versed in the 72 languages of mankind, and did send them two and two with his authority into every city and place where Yashaya himself had before preached the holy law unto the nations of the earth.
And Yashaya spake unto them concerning Babel, saying: "Know ye the evil one did confuse the pure language of man, even of Adam and Enoch, and constructed a temple wherein the true prophet of God spake not unto the people. For Babel meaneth confusion, even as Satan is god of every disorder. So have many languages come into being to mislead the righteous, for this one hateth the word of God and seeketh the unholy tongues which keepeth man in confusion and ignorance of the Holy Law. For thy God is One God, not of disorder but of All Peace.
"Go ye therefore unto the nations and speak unto them the truth and wisdom of the only True God, even our Eternal Father Who art in Heaven. Yea, go your many different ways, and behold I send ye forth as innocent lambs among unfed wolves. Be ye warned, that every form of evil desire shall Satan aim against ye, for truth this one hateth and twisteth into a lie and deceiveth many. Therefore trust no man nor salute no man by the way, but trust only in the angel of the Lord, who shall guide ye and minister unto ye always.
"And into whatsoever place ye enter, say first, 'Peace be to this place or household.' And if the spirit of peace be there, then allow your peace to rest upon it; if not, your peace shall come back unto you. Speak ye with any who loveth righteousness and seeketh after the holy things of God, but speak not holy things with men of wicked heart, lest ye cast truth before devils that mock....
"And when some receive ye, eat such things as are set before you without the taking of life, always making thyself an example of the holy way-for if some offer thee flesh of animals, speak ye the truth of such foul things that they know the good from the evil. And work good works, by healing their spiritual and physical ills, and saying unto them, 'The Kingdom of God is come nigh unto you this day.'
"And in their home remain, teaching the holy way of life to all within, but always eating and drinking such things as they give unto you without the shedding of blood or dullness of senses.
"And continue to preach in the public squares and in every house of worship wherein ye are welcome. Be ye not peddlers of the truths of God, for precious are the gems, devils and evil men would trample upon. Therefore, go ye not from house to house as the merchant doth, imagining greatness of things which are not great but small in the eyes of God, for God knoweth the sheep and the sheep heareth His voice and come out from darkness.
"For I say unto ye all, the Perfect Father perceives the hearts of men and sendeth His Holy Angels as messengers to guide thy steps and maketh the roadway before thee. Ye bringeth the truth unto men, but mine angels separate the sheep from the goats and leadeth you in all things.
"Cast not the Christ before devils, lest they trample Him under foot, and bring shame to thy All-Parent in Heaven....For the fine pearl is Christ, but the poor in spirit only receive Him. Yea, the worldly wise seek only the vanity of the world and corrupt themselves by it, for they seek not the All-Truth which leadeth to life eternal, but the empty sayings of men, which leadeth to sin and death.
"Be ye fishers of men and cast thy nets for the riches of Heaven, in that ye become not crude tools of Satan, but fine instruments of Christ, ever seeking the lost sheep of God, scattered about in every nation of man, even as the waters cover the sea basins. For I tell ye, truly, Satan also gathers seed into the evil harvest, and whatsoever Satan gathereth, he keepeth and claimeth victory over the good. But I say unto ye all, whatsoever this one doeth, leave it be, for authority is granted the evil one to gather seed, even as the Holy Angels gather the righteous seed of God, over whom Satan hath no power.
"Yea, Holy Angels knoweth the seed of God and leadeth you unto every one of them, but ye shall feed my sheep with the truths of the Kingdom. And if any man deny to feed the sheep of the true fold, he shall not inherit the blessings laid down even from the foundation of the world. Go, and feed the lost sheep, even Israel -- every nation of men who love righteousness and the pure oblation teach unto them all I have taught unto you. If they be of the true fold, they will listen unto thy voice and know that ye speak in the Christ.
"But into whatsoever city ye enter and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same and say, 'Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you; notwithstanding be ye certain, that the Kingdom of God is come nigh unto you, but ye have rejected it.' For those of these cities that hear you, hear me also; and they that despise you, despise me also, and they that despise me, despise Him that sent me. But let all be persuaded in their own minds, for by their evil, will they be judged, and by their good rewarded.
"Be ye merciful with every nation of people and at all times be ye patient, in order that ye shall obtain mercy also. Forgive others freely, so ye shall be forgiven in like manner. Remember always, with what measure ye mete, with the same it be meted unto you also. For as ye do unto others, so shall it be done unto you. As ye give, so shall it be given unto you. As ye judge others, so ye be judged. As ye serve others, so shall ye be served.
"Speak not a harsh word ever, nor belittle those below you in wisdom. For God is just, and rewardeth every one according to their works, good and bad, for that which they sow, they shall also reap. Go therefore out unto the nations and speak truth to them of the Christ, even all that I have told ye. Yea, teach them the holy way of life; for I tell ye truly, all must be humane to be worthy of me and learn of the mysteries of God. My peace be with thee, one and all, till the consummation of the wicked age; I am with thee in all things. For all things must see fulfillment and be fulfilled in order that truth be made manifest in the world and ignorance be put to shame; for although ye be in the world, ye are not part of the world. For the time cometh when all falsehood shall be uncovered and the True God vindicated of the unworthy sayings of man."
And the disciples of Yashaya did journey into every land far away-into Egypt, into Persia, into India-and into every land where Yashaya had healed the spiritual and physical ills of the people. And surely did Yashaya keep his word unto them, that disciples of light would come and teach the holy way of life. And all of Israel was given testimony of the truth....And every nation of earth did receive the Holy Law and did learn of the Christ and the Father/Mother of all creation.
Yashaya Feeds 5000 with Six Loaves
And Seven Clusters of Grapes
And it came to pass that after Yashaya had done and said many other things, multitudes began to follow him wherever he traveled hither or thither, and it was difficult for Yashaya and his disciples to be alone. But Yashaya was moved with compassion toward them, because he realized they were as sheep having not a shepherd to care for their needs.
So it was, that one day Yashaya and some of the disciples departed for a deserted place; but even here the people followed, for want of Yashaya's words. And it was at this time, Yashaya and the disciples wanted to eat and rest. And Yashaya said unto them, Give them also to eat. But the disciples answered, How shall this be, we have only six loaves, and seven clusters of grapes.
And Yashaya commanded them to make all sit down by divisions of 50. And when he had taken of the six loaves and the seven clusters of grapes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and the grapes also, and gave them to his disciples. And they divided them among them all, and they did all eat, and were filled . . . Some 5000 men, women and children . . .
And lo, they took up 12 baskets full of fragments that were left over. And Yashaya taught them the meaning of the Holy Law, and when the people had seen the miracle and heard his sayings, they were filled with great joy, and said, "Truly, this is that Prophet even Moses spake of, this Yashaya of Nazareth."
The following day . . . Many of the 5000 fed with the loaves and the grapes, were again seeking Yashaya, and when they had found him . . . Yashaya said unto them, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves and the fruit and were filled. But I say to ye, this day, work not for the food which perisheth, but rather for that food which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of Man, Who is also the Child of God, shall give unto you."
Then they said unto Yashaya, "What shall we do that we may work for this food you speak of?" And Yashaya answered and said unto them, "This is the work of God, that ye believe the truth of the Holy Law in me, and who I am, for it is I only, who giveth it unto you, yea, the holy truth and the way to Life."
And they said unto Yashaya, "What sign shewest thou then, that we may see and believe thee? For our forefathers did eat manna in the desert, even bread from heaven."
Then Yashaya said unto them, "Truly, I say unto you, Moses gave you not the true bread from heaven, but my Parent giveth you now the true bread from heaven and the fruit of the living vine. For I am that food of God which cometh down from heaven and giveth life unto the world . . . I am the true Bread, I am the living Vine, the same am I that appeared unto Adam and promised his deliverance. For they that come to me shall never hunger, and they that believe on me shall never thirst. And verily I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh and drink the blood of God, ye have no life in you....For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of God who sent me. For His will is, that of all who are given unto me f should lose none, but should raise them up again."
And some of the Jews murmured at him, because he said, 'I'm the bread which cometh down from heaven,' for the Jews believed not in him, but were envious of his good works. But Yashaya knowing their hard hearts, answered and said unto them, "Murmur ye not among yourselves, for none can come to me, except Holy Love and Holy Wisdom draw them, and these shall rise again. For it is written in the Prophets, 'They shall be all taught of God.' Therefore I say unto ye, every man who hath heard and hath learned the Truth of the Holy Law, cometh quickly, indeed unto me . . . For they who believe my laws have everlasting life."
Yashaya the True Bread and the Living Vine
"That is why I am the true Bread and the living Vine. Yea, Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, but are dead. But this is the food of God which cometh down from heaven, that whosoever eat thereof, shall not die-for I am the living food which came down from heaven; if any eat of this food they shall live forever. For know ye, that the Holy Bread that I will give is My Law and the Vine which I will give is my life."
And again the Jews murmured and questioned among themselves: "How can this man give us himself for food? Surely this man speaks foolish things to grown men."
But again Yashaya answered them and said: "Think ye that I speak of the eating of flesh, which ye ignorantly do in the Temple of God? Indeed, Ye think evil things, for, lo, my body is the substance of God, and this is meat indeed, and my blood is the life of God, and is drink indeed. I say to ye then, think ye not therefore of flesh and blood, as your ancestors, who lusted for flesh, and flesh they did receive and eat of corruption till it stank in the nostrils, and their carcasses fell by the thousand in the wilderness by reason of the plague. For of such ones it is written, 'They shall wander a Jubilee, nine and 40 years in the wilderness till they are purified from their lusts, ere they enter the land of rest, yea seven times seven years shall they wander because they have not known My Holy Ways, neither obeyed My Holy Laws.'
"Thus, I say unto ye, they who eat this holy flesh, and drink this holy blood dwell in me and I in them . . . As the Father-Mother of life hath sent me, and by Whom I live, so they that eat of me, who am the law and the life, even they shall live by me. For I came down from heaven as the living law in the flesh and my blood imparts eternal life to all who obey. Let them with ears hear and with eyes see, for it is I before you this day who giveth such holy things freely unto the sons of man."
But some of Yashaya's disciples understood not the meaning of Yashaya's words, and reasoned that this was a difficult saying and who can understand it? For they could not realize that Yashaya was the living bread that gives life, for they imagined blood sacrifices the Pharisees offered at the Temple out of lawlessness and ignorance. For great was the number of innocent animals slaughtered and offered up to God in place of the Pure Oblation, and great was the blood-guilt and evil of their ways, for God at no time desired bloodshed, but only obedience to His Laws and the sacrifice of good works and a pure heart.
Yashaya, knowing some of his disciples believed in him not as the living bread came down from heaven, said unto them: "Do these words offend you? Do ye not know that it is the spirit that quickeneth, and that flesh and blood profiteth nothing? My words are spirit and they are life. Yea, for so great a time, ye have been subjected to mere doctrines of men and devils, for ye know not the lie from the truth, and ye believe not truth when spoken-for if ye believe not the Son of Man, who hath been sent from heaven to work many great things, then who shall ye believe or hearken to? For I tell ye, this day, there are some among you that claimeth to be my disciples, but believe not in my words, and understand not the holy truths of God, for truth is not in ye, lest ye would know me and my words." From that day on, many of his disciples left off and walked no more with Yashaya, for the all-truth was not in them, nor did they prove to be righteous seed.
