Don't know "beans" about the Bible? . . . that can be rectified
The Analogy of "Beanology"
Though this probably doesn't apply to you, most of what you will read on the Xrayzr Revelations website will be directed toward those who don't know "beans" about the Bible. Of course, everyone has an opinion regarding what the Bible "is". Not so much whether the Bible has any value or not; but how many "verses of scripture" in the Bible are really necessary.
Many people go to "Church", or whatever they are told they should call their congregational services, lugging a five-pound Bible along with them every week of their adult lives, even though they may not be familiar with more than a few scriptures in it. Carrying a pamphlet, or leaflet, or "tract" containing "The Ten Most Important Scriptures in the Bible" isn't as impressive as carrying a "well-worn" five-pound Bible—at least well-worn on the outside, which is the part others see.
If you match that description and feel insulted by that bit of sarcasm—good. You'll probably continue throughout the rest of your life thinking you know all you need to know about the Bible even though what you actually know, or care about, would fit on a miniature tract which could be read, and maybe even understood by a child.
But maybe you do know all you need to know. It is not that essential that you read the Bible from cover-to-cover forty or fifty times during your life. Much of the Bible probably isn't worth reading more than once. And don't be too impressed by those who make a living preaching from the Bible—whom I will label as "beanologians".
If my sarcastic humor is confusing you, that's a reference to self-acclaimed "theologians" who may seem to know a lot about the Bible, but really don't know "beans".
If you will be continuing to read my presentations, don't be concerned if you currently don't know "beans" about the Bible. You have a lot of company—like most of the world's population throughout human history. Eventually you will learn why the twelve disciples of Jesus understood virtually nothing about anything that is now considered obligatory "Christian" doctrine—even after virtually living with him for over two years.
Many of us were served only one variety of theological "beans" or "beanology" as children. And many keep going back endlessly for more servings of the same. So there is no confusion; I am not implying that all of the theological "beans" we were expected to "swallow" as children were bogus beans.
What is served in most of the poly-denominational world of Christian "beaneries" might qualify as real "spiritual food". (I'm referring to the major denominational, and often dominational church organizations as "beaneries", if you're still confused.) But what they serve is like refried beans—virtually pre-digested "baby food". In fact, in some cases, the "pre-digestion" has gone so far it's difficult to tell whether what is being served is refried beans or something that just looks like it.
Many are able to "live happily ever after" on one variety of "theological beans", or "beanology" their whole lives, not knowing, or wanting to know that there is any variety of beans other than the ones they've swallowed their entire lives. When such individuals are informed that the Creator God they think they know may have created other varieties of beans that might be far more satisfying than the one variety of beans they think is the best for everyone on Earth—those individuals might retort: "Our bean is the only true bean, and if you believe differently you'll end up being re-fried day and night for the rest of eternity!"
Thankfully, I never got too attached to the doctrinal "beans" I was served as a child—even though most of them were genuine. Perhaps I unconsciously stuck a couple into my ears so I wouldn't have to hear the boring sermons. But having what I like to think is an analytical mind, I was attracted to a then relatively well-known doctrine-dissecting form of Christianity which specialized in the inspection of the "beans" being served by most of the major Christian "beaneries"—finding it easy to prove, quite often, that all of them were serving "plastic beans" along with whatever variety of real beans they had on the menu.
Of course, it turned out that those bean-counters were also serving plastic beans along with real ones, and they charged exorbitant prices (in the form of tithes and offerings) for whatever it was they served. And, as is common in most theological "beaneries", those who entered were expected to swallow everything that was served to them—with no questions asked. But at least I learned what was on the menu at many other major "beaneries", from a very critical, yet rational, analytical viewpoint.
When I finally became aware that they had begun serving more plastic beans than real ones, I decided that I didn't need to have the "cooks" at any one "beanery" determine, and limit what I should believe theologically. Fortunately, the plastic beans didn't cause any problematic side effects.
In fact, when a person has had an opportunity to spend many years living his life within more than one denomination, or church organization, or even "religion", the experience can be beneficial if the person realizes that there are plenty of genuinely good people in virtually all of them. GOD has never expected mankind "to live by one type of beans alone" and has never had only one "true" physical "Church" on Earth serving them. The only true "Church of GOD" is a Spirit association, administrated in Heaven, whose human members, whether still living or dead, are known only to GOD.
Many Christians can be satisfied with a very simplified, "no questions asked" form of Christianity all of their lives. Some think that essential Christian doctrine is so simple that a child can understand it. That was the form of fundamental, and mostly true, Christianity I was taught as a child, though I didn't think there was any need to "understand" it because it was so simplified there really wasn't anything to understand. All that was "required" was "belief", or agreement that it was true.
The apostle Paul characterized such basic doctrines as "milk", which even children should be able to understand, though Paul often wondered if any of the adult believers ever really understood them.
5:11 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing you are dull of hearing.
5:12 For when for the time you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of GOD; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong food.
5:13 For every one that uses milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness; for he is a babe.
5:14 But strong food belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
If the variety of "pre-digested beanology" you heard and understood as a child is good enough for you—for the remainder of your adult life—then "more power to you"—you need it. Continue to enjoy your current "faith system" if it "fills the bill", although it might not fill more than two or three pages of the over two thousand pages I plan to fill with what I've been working on for the last thirty-three years since I stopped patronizing theological "beaneries" on a regular basis. Now I enjoy "patronizing" them from afar.
It is possible that you have already heard, and believe, more about the spiritual aspects of "Christian" doctrine than Jesus' disciples ever heard or had a chance to believe. They were always very unsure and doubtful about what he was—primarily because of the very strange statements he was always making—which, if made by any other human at that time, or now, would cause most to flee.
6:41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the Bread which came down from Heaven.
6:42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that he says, I came down from Heaven?
6:43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw him; and I will raise him up at the last day.
6:45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of GOD. Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes unto me.
6:46 Not that any man has seen the Father, save he which is of GOD, he has seen the Father.
6:47 Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that believes on me has everlasting life.
6:48 I am that Bread of Life.
6:49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
6:50 This is the Bread which comes down from Heaven, that a man may "eat" thereof, and not die.
6:51 I am the living Bread which came down from Heaven; if any man "eat" of this [living]Bread, he shall live for ever; and the [living]Bread that I will give [by dying, and then being resurrected, so as to become living again as a Spirit being]is my "flesh", which I will give for the [eternal]life of the World.
6:52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
6:53 Then Jesus said unto them, Truly, truly, I say unto you, Except you "eat" the "flesh" of the Son of Man, and drink his "blood", you have no [hope of eternal]life in you.
6:54 Whoso "eats" my "flesh", and drinks my "blood", has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. [no one will be given literal eternal life until after resurrection in a Spirit body]
6:55 For my "flesh" is food indeed, and my "blood" is drink indeed.
6:56 He that "eats" my [spiritual]"flesh", and drinks my [spiritual]"blood", dwells in me, and I in him. ["in the Spirit"]
6:57 As the living Father has sent me, and I live by the Father; so he that "eats" me, even he shall live by me.
6:58 This is that Bread which came down from Heaven; not as your fathers did eat manna [not eating little physical "wafers"], and are dead; he that "eats" of this Bread shall live for ever.
6:59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
6:60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is a hard saying; who can hear it?
6:61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Does this offend you?
6:62 What and if you shall see the Son of Man ascend up where he was before?
6:63 It is the Spirit [of GOD]that gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit[ual], and they are life[giving].
That is the verse that "scripture literalists" never seem to notice. Although everyone hearing it thought Jesus was saying that his followers would have to become like a flock of carnivorous birds feasting on the corpse of a battle victim to extend their own lives, he explained, to those he wasn't trying to scare away, that it would not be the eating, or cannibalizing of the literal, or even the symbolically "literal" flesh and blood of his own dead body that would profit anyone. Only the acquisition, from GOD, the Father, of the same holy or hallowed Spirit which the Lord, Jesus was exhibiting, would enable any other human to become part of the spiritual "body" of Christ—also known as the "Church of GOD".
Only after Jesus, or Yahshua endured a truly human life—including death—as the prophesied "Son of Man" and had been enabled to ascend "where he was before" would he qualify to receive power from his GOD (the Ancient of Days) enabling him to eventually "judge all men" or humans with sympathy and mercy, rather than with the "righteous indignation" he had trouble controlling as exposed throughout most of what is known as the Hebrew Scriptures, or "Old Testament".
6:64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
6:66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
6:67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will you also go away?
6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? you have the words of eternal life.
6:69 And we believe and are sure that you are that Christ, the Son of the living GOD.
6:70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
6:71 He spoke of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon; for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
The disciples were afraid to ask questions, which is why they remained almost totally ignorant of anything we now call fundamental "Christian" doctrine until Paul began to attempt to explain all of the formerly incomprehensible Messianic symbolism that had been presented in hundreds of ways throughout human history—not only from the day Adam and Eve were created, but also from the first day of that week as the "foundation" of our human world was being established. It is amazing how much not-yet-explained symbolism has been portrayed in the historical record of Genesis, Chapters 1 and 2.
13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against GOD, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in Heaven.
13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them; and power was given him over all families, and tongues, and nations.
13:8 And all that dwell upon the Earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Though the twelve disciples of Jesus were apparently quite naive about traditional Messianic doctrine, and never heard of, or preached much of what is now assumed to be compulsory "Christian" doctrine, their "belief system" was far better than the complete disbelief in Jesus' Messianic claims exhibited by his mother, and brothers and sisters, even after living with him and near him for most of thirty years. They, among others, thought he was "beside himself", or worse, and tried to prevent him from embarrassing them when he was beginning his ministry of revelation about himself and his GOD and Father in Heaven.
3:20 And the multitude comes together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.
3:21 And when his friends ["kin-folk"]heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him; for they said, He is beside himself.
8:20And it was told him by certain which said, Your mother and your brethren stand without, desiring to see you.
8:21And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of GOD, and do it.
7:2 Now the Jew's Feast of Tabernacles was at hand.
7:3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart behind, and go into Judaea, that your disciples also may see the works that you do.
7:4 For there is no man that does any thing in secret, and he himself seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, show yourself to the world.
7:5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.
Apparently, Jesus' stepfather Joseph died shortly after Jesus began to fulfill the commission given to him by GOD, his Father in Heaven. His mother Mary, and brothers and sisters did not "believe in him" until after he "returned" from the grave—which is different from "turning over in one's grave" as his stepfather Joseph would have been doing, metaphorically, if he had any consciousness at the time.
Immediately after Jesus' resurrection, many who had believed he was the Messiah when he was born, or during his life, but had died before he did, were given a continuation of their physical flesh and blood lives, as was Lazarus shortly before Jesus' resurrection.
27:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the spirit.
27:51 And, behold, the veil of the Temple was split in two from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks split;
27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
27:53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the Holy City, and appeared unto many.
27:54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of GOD.
Joseph probably had the same doubts as the rest of his family about his stepson's life-long claims that GOD in Heaven was his true Father. GOD, the Father, is the ultimate Designer and Generator of the physical reproductive processes and reproductive instincts of every specie. It is GOD, the Father who exclusively controls the Spirit "programming" of all living creatures.
The Elder Elohim, including the personal Angel of GOD are responsible for designing, testing, and perfecting the millions of "applications" or "apps" we call "species", including their pre-learned reproductive "instincts". But it is GOD, the Father who exclusively controls the "programming" which makes the "applications" possible.
In the first chapter of the book called "Hebrews", which the apostle Paul dictated "anonymously" to facilitate reception by the almost exclusively Jewish Hebrew-speaking Messianic "Church of GOD" in Jerusalem, there is a very revealing discussion of the process during which GOD, the Unlimited became known as GOD, the Father of the mortal "flesh and blood" body in which He required His Angel to live a truly human life for almost thirty-three years.
GOD is the ultimate Designer and "Programmer" of His omnipresent Spirit, which "automatically" and without conscious "judgment" causes the continuous production and development of every creature from its single-cell stage. It was a simple matter for GOD to exclude a few steps in the normal processes He designed which often lead to the Spirit of GOD being "automatically" authorized to generate any mortal body. He programmed His Spirit to generate a "flesh and blood" body that would appear, when mature, almost identical to the "flesh and bone" embodiment used by His Angel, from time to time, such as during the meeting with Abraham and Sarah regarding the super-naturally assisted conception of Isaac.
The "first Adam" was made to appear almost as a "cloned image" of the Eloh God who has been given the appearance, or image the "invisible GOD" prefers as a singular expression of Himself. When mature, Jesus, or Yahshua, "the last Adam", appeared almost as a "clone" of the "first Adam" who was made to appear as a "clone" of the Eloh God, who, with GOD, became the "first Atom".
If that sounds confusing, you are right. But it is not confusion. There is a big difference. GOD is not the author of confusion. He has left that to humans like myself. But it is often necessary to dig through "heaps" of confusion that has been authored by humans to find revelations that all fit together beautifully when separated from the writings, or scriptures that aren't "profitable for doctrine".
1 CORINTHIANS 14:33
14:33 For GOD is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
As you may have seen here and there—Xrayzr promotes peaceful reform in all areas of human thought and behavior—especially in the realms of religion and government.
Of course Joseph believed in what the Messiah was prophesied to accomplish in transforming the entire world with God-like supernatural powers. But he didn't believe his stepson Yahshua could ever accomplish that. Nevertheless, there should be no doubt that Joseph would have been included among the "saints" who believed in the Messiah to the limits of their understanding, and Joseph would certainly have been given a continuation of physical life so that he too could join Mary and their children as belated believers and witnesses once he understood the fullness of the Messianic prophecies.
Many have heard that Jesus referred to his Spirit Father in Heaven as "my GOD". Few have been taught that he continued to do that when he had returned to Heaven to be restored to his former position as the "Angel" of the LORD—the LORD being "the only true GOD", who is now known as GOD, the Father.
17:3And this is life eternal, that they might know you the only true GOD, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
20:17 Jesus says unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my GOD, and your GOD.
3:12 Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the Temple of my GOD, and he shall go no more out; and I will write upon him the name of my GOD, and the name of the City of my GOD, which is New Jerusalem, which comes down out of Heaven from my GOD; and I will write upon him my new name.
The apostle John wrote, with perfect clarity, what he knew because of his close personal and loving relationship with his cousin Yahshua, also known as Iesous, or Jesus. He had also communicated with him extensively as the Angel of the LORD in the fully dimensional vision known as the Revelation.
1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which GOD gave unto him, to show unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His Angel[who was Jesus Christ]unto His servant John;
1:2 Who bore record of the word of GOD, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with GOD, and the Word was God.
1:2 The same was in the beginning with GOD.
1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
In the beginning of his own singular conscious existence, the Word, or Logos, found himself in the presence of the ultimate LORD—GOD, the Unlimited, who had designed and created him to become the only "Eloh" Angel who would ever be authorized and empowered to represent himself as "God" in the form of a singular person, or personality.
And the Logos was "God" to all who interacted with him. Not until he was transformed into a mortal human for the purpose of fulfilling the first phase of his responsibilities as the Messiah, or Christ, and was commissioned to reveal "the only true GOD" in Heaven, did he begin to refer to the only true GOD as his GOD—and he did not stop doing that even after he was reinstated as the Angel of the LORD, whom he still represents as "God" in the form of a singular personality.
Only the twenty-four Elder "Eloh" angels have seen and had interaction with GOD, the Unlimited, (GOD, the Father) during the extremely rare times He has temporarily manifested Himself in a singular embodiment—which could be any of the billions of "perfected" complexes of harmonious body and behavior traits He has designed. The Elder Elohim angels were, themselves, designed by "the only true GOD" as harmonious personas which characterize various aspects of His unlimited ability to design and perfect millions of distinctive specialized life-forms—which we call physical "species"—and billions of distinctive humans, which we call "unique personalities".
The Angel of the LORD is the "firstborn" and primary creating "Eloh" Angel and the Commander of the twenty-four other co-creating Elder Eloh angels—the Elohim to whom he was speaking in the first chapter of Genesis.
1:26 And God [the Angel of the LORD] said, Let us make humans in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion [a position of prominence—not oppression, or cruelty] over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the Earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the Earth.
1:27 So God [the first "Atom"] created man [the first Adam] in his own image, in the image of God [himself] created he him [Adam]; male and female created he them [in a composite "image" of all of the twelve distinctive "masculine" Elder Elohim and the twelve "feminine" Elder Elohim.]
The Angel of the LORD "halos" or "hallows" his GOD and Father, who is the ultimate Designer and Creator of all of the embodiments His Angel has been authorized to utilize while acting as the primary singular representation of his Progenitor (or Father), "the only true GOD" who prefers to remain invisible and unlimited by the confines of a single personality or embodiment.
1:13 Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the Kingdom of his dear Son;
1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins;
1:15 Who is the image of the invisible GOD, the firstborn of every creature;
1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in Earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers; all things were created by him, and for him;
1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
1:18 And he is the head of the body, the Church; who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the pre-eminence.
1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;
1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in Earth, or things in Heaven.
1:21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now has he reconciled
1:22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and irreproachable in his sight;
1:23 If you continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the Gospel, which you have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under Heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;
The above should give you some idea of what will become available throughout 2012. If you have believed all of your life that "Jesus" or Yahshua of Nazareth was a false Messiah, or that his followers concocted a load of "beans" to "glorify" Jesus' "flash-in-the-pan" "fifteen minutes of fame" that never had any significance, please continue to check this website. Perhaps you have been offered nothing but plastic beans which have no resemblance to the reality of what has been revealed about the Messiah, or Christ—not only in the "Bible", but in the whole "universe".
Many seem to think that GOD could have just skipped His attempts to reveal Himself in a "Bible" full of apparently contradictory confusion and irrelevant nonsense. Even what many believe is supernatural revelation can often be interpreted from so many viewpoints that if there is revelation it is apparently not necessary for anyone to know what it means. Often the only logical conclusion is that GOD never thought of simply giving Adam and Eve a little four-page "tract" revealing all they and every other human who has been born would ever need to ensure eternal life in Heaven—as opposed to eternal life in Hell. (I jest. There will be no eternal life in Hell--for any former humans.)
If you are "firm in your faith" and think there is nothing more that you need to learn about the Bible, then enjoy your handful of beans—but don't expect many others to be impressed by a God who only knows how to create one variety of beans—if all of them are beans. As mentioned, what I hope to be presenting on this website and in my planned publications throughout 2012 will probably require over a couple of thousand pages just to begin to reveal the "beans" that I want to show everyone.
If all goes well, many will become intrigued by the many amazing revelations that seem to be on the verge of exposure. But they will only be available to those who take the time to read them and evaluate them. I won't be revealing what's been, or "bean" hidden in my own mind—I hope. I'll be trying to reveal what's been "hidden" not only throughout the Bible, from cover-to-cover, but throughout the "heavens and Earth" since "before the beginning".
28:9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little.
If you explore the "Logology of Pantology" you might be able to discern much of the organization of the future presentation of my "self-styled" revelations about "almost everything". And all of it should be understandable by almost anyone who reads all of it. But it must be presented gradually and progressively—a little bit here, a little bit there, until everything has become inter-connected like a jigsaw puzzle; or like "almost everything" of value in the universe.
Maybe you'll end up knowing "beans" about the Bible so you can become a self-acclaimed "beanologian" too—"out standing in the field" of "beanology". Or better yet—maybe you will simply be knowledgeable. Try it—you'll like it.
