Today I am going to discuss a very mysterious man from Genesis: Enoch. His legacy is so mysterious that the institutionalized church decided other sources concerning him should not be part of the official Biblical canon. This was a big mistake because a lot of spiritual wisdom and knowledge was lost to the masses because of that decision. We can’t blame them though—not long after the 1st century the literal interpretation of the Bible became so engrained in church leadership, they labeled anything they didn’t understand as “evil.” This is still happening today. But as we’ll soon see, the tracks leading us back to some of this ancient wisdom weren’t covered completely; clues in the official cannon are still there for us to discover today!

We all know the Biblical story of Cain and Abel, but do we really understand the great spiritual implications of this iconic struggle between brothers? For centuries the church has taught this story as a literal struggle between two individuals. However, the true intent behind the narrative of Cain and Abel is much more important than its literal rendition because Cain and Abel represent something much nearer to us than a 6,000 year-old story ever could.

The Bride of Christ and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb…what strange language used to describe Christians who are destined for a very special occurrence of cosmic proportions! But what does it all really mean? Could the language be symbolic for an event that might be a little closer to you than you might realize? For hundreds of years the true meaning of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb has been sacrificed by religiously-minded leaders; it is not an actual event that is going to happen in a far away majestic abode above the clouds—it’s a majestic occurrence that takes place between your ears, inside your head, or more specifically, inside your mind.

Have you ever wondered what Paul was really referring to when he used the words “husband” and “wife” in Ephesians? How about “Christ” and “Church?” Paul says it is a great mystery! What if I told you Paul was speaking of consciousness itself? Sounds absurd, doesn’t it!? But if you dig deep enough, it becomes obvious. [Read more…] about The Mystery of the Husband, the Wife, and the Church
What’s really behind the story of Adam and Eve? We answered many of these questions in the post entitled, Adam and Eve: The Story of Human Consciousness, but there’s so much more about the human condition packed in this brilliant little story that many more blog posts should and will be devoted to it. Today we will review more about the fractured subconscious and conscious mind, as well as the need for unity consciousness in order to become whole and healed. We will also discuss why life is the one opportunity for this to happen! [Read more…] about Adam and Eve: The Story of Awareness Opportunity
In this blog post I would like to show you just why we can say that God is light and love. It sounds a little cliché, doesn’t it? But the fact that God is light and love becomes apparent when you dig beyond the literal interpretation of the Bible and discover one of the greatest spiritual treasures possible! [Read more…] about Why God is Light and Love!
Money, prosperity, and blessings! Most everybody wants them, and in the past few decades mega-churches across the nation have developed the concept of “prosperity gospel.” The gist of this concept is that if you please God by following all his rules, God will send financial prosperity your way. Is this true? [Read more…] about Money and the Bible: Prosperity Gospel or To Look Within
Many illuminations lie in Genesis, but few have seen the light; for centuries Biblical literalists have taught very shallow meanings for a book laden with so many esoteric—or “inner”— treasures. This is such a shame, because contained within Genesis are the answers to life’s greatest mysteries. Perhaps one of the greatest illuminations revealed in this book is the explanation of the relationship between man and god. It’s a lot closer than you can imagine.

Paul is an interesting Bible character. His writings have stirred many interesting debates, especially between keepers of the law and those who live by grace. But the law vs. grace debate isn’t necessary. In fact, it has no bearing whatsoever on what was really meant by the writings of Paul or the commandment teachings of the Old Testament.
