The Key of Knowledge



The Key of knowledge provides an invaluable contribution to the devotional study of the New Testament. Discover hidden connections revealing the original thought processes behind the apostolic writings. Aligning the sayings of Jesus together with the apostolic writings, we "make the two into one." It's almost like Jesus and the apostles left us a cross reference study bible. For the serious student, willing to struggle with the text, this reference material may amaze you. Meditate on these things. It will change everything!

The Gospel of Christ





The Gospel of Christ is an introduction to the New Testament understanding of the Oneness of the Body, and the Oneness of the All. There is a gospel to the circumcision. And there is a gospel to the uncircumcision. These two communities are reconciled into One Joint-Body as an illustration of that which was, and is, and is to come. There is a complete reunification, a reconciliation of all things, a restoration of the all, a marriage in the holy place, and a kingdom that is spread over all the earth. Christ is all of this, and more. This is just the beginning.

Mystery: Condensed

The Mystery of Christ is an examination of the biblical basis for the belief that all creation will be united within the Christ. The paper then concludes with a discussion of the implications of the tension that exists between this belief that God makes "all things new" and the doctrine of  eternal punishment.

Universalist Thinking

Will All Mankind Be Saved questions the doctrine of Eternal Torment, and clearly explains why I eventually embraced the Ultimate Reconciliation of all humankind. Knowing that the journey to truth can be difficult, but worthwhile, I humbly present this paper to the reader. May our search be an honest one and full of truth.


Universalist Thinking considers some of the theology behind the teachings of Christian Universalism.

Serpent Eating Tail The Knowledge of Christ


Knowledge & Oneness


The Knowledge (or Gnosis) of Christ presents deeper insights and teachings that are necessary to bring the Church to maturity. Christ entrusted this wisdom to an inner circle of disciples, as they were able to receive it. However, for those strongly influenced by the religion of the past these new teachings often became very troublesome, when in the wrong hands. The epistles are full of admonitions toward and against those who used these insights to exalt themselves over other believers, to exercise a lack of love, and even to justify hurtful libertine behavior. As these deeper ideas resurface, and are embraced by some again today, a balanced approach is needed: One that recognizes their value, but also knows how to hold the truth with the love that never fails.

Wedding Ring
The Bridal Chamber


The Bridal Chamber is the holy of holies hidden behind the veil, in the spirit of the mind, where through a vision male and female can become one new Perfect Man. 

The Wedding is the re-uniting, or Reconciliation into ONE of that which was divided. "Marriage is honorable in all,” even as “Christ is all and in all.” There is nothing hidden that will not be made manifest! 

___________________________________________________________________
Male Female The Perfect Man


Unto a Perfect man,... we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God,... unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. This Christ, the One Body, the Perfect Man, is the bodily representation of a perfected universe. In Him dwells all the “fullness”… bodily. Any man who offends not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. He will be astonished, and he will rule over the All. Behold the kingdom.

The Resurrection of All


Seeing the Christ


Christ is All and in All
The Eternal Vantage PointGod's view is eternal, and so we try thinking outside time. With divine insight we may discover that what we look forward to has already come, but without such vision we may not recognize it. There are hints of such a divine eternal worldview within scripture freeing us from the fetters of time and cultural restraints, but in the darkness of the carnal mind, men do not see it. Perceiving the promises of scripture as already fulfilled may be one step toward seeing reality from a divine eternal perspective, as God sees it. May our eyes be opened. 

Seeing the Christ: Christ is the beginning, the middle and the end. The Christ is that which WAS, that which IS, and that which IS TO COME. HE is the Alpha and the Omega. He is the whole alphabet. Christ is all there is. All and in all. In the twinkling of an eye, changing the way we see reality.

Christ is all and all
is a detailed discussion with Ken concerning the impact of embracing "Christ as all in all" as a present day truth.

Hourglass In Circle Aionios:
Time, Eternity, & the Ages

Aionios: Time, Eternity, & the Ages - Moulton and Milligan in "Vocabulary of the Greek New Testament" write concerning aionios that "In general the word depicts that of which the horizon is not in view, whether the horizon be at an infinite distance, or whether it lies no farther than the span of Caesar's life." New Thayers Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament defines "kolasis" as "CORRECTION, punishment, penalty". It is a linguistically possible to replace  "eternal punishment" with "CORRECTION FOR THE AGES." Let us exercise caution to interpret the "aionian" Punishment passages individually in the light of the immediate context, and the larger context of The Common Salvation Message within Scripture. Rather than narrowly imposing the dogmatic and extreme concept of "Eternal" punishment as the only definition to be used, let us be reasonable, cautious, and prudent in our interpretations. "THE PUNISHMENT WHICH THE UNFAITHFUL SHALL RECEIVE ARE SUCH AS BEFITS GOD TO GIVE AND INFLICT. BEYOND THAT WE CANNOT GO," William Barclay.  

Aionios is just a simple linguistic study. I wish to take the reader so much deeper, to see the bigger picture: The will of God, the Mystery of Christ, and The Gospel of Christ!    God willing... we will do this.

Greg writes,  "I guess the whole debate just bugs me because of the folk who (in my opinion) are such narrow minded gits that they see heaven as an exclusive preserve of Christians (specifically, Evangelical, born-again folk).  The notion of 95% of all humanity being eradicated by this supposedly "loving" God who gave his only begotten son as a sacrifice is in my mind obscene...  What kind of God is this?"

Aaron reponds, "There are two categories of men with two different destinations (elect and sons of perdition). Only God knows for sure who they are."

Dean comments,
"Such theological discussions may have their place. But surely, the saints must tire of this debate.  Is it time to change our focus? When I look at Christ I see what God is like. I see One who loved sinners, who chastised the over confident, a God who justifies the ungodly, and judges the self-righteous." God willing, let us move on to perfection.

Finding Friends and Connecting

Quakin Friends suggests an attempt at moving increasingly to less structure hoping to gradually mirror more closely the simplicity of the early New Testament Church. It encourages a Christ centered, Independent, Unprogrammed, Non-creedal, Inclusive Fellowship, revealing that "Christ is in All & All is in Christ". Meetings are Open and Participatory. Other meetings will start up anywhere two or three can meet with Christ in their midst. (Note about this article: I now look back at this old posting as somewhat carnal and flawed, and distorted by denominational teaching. I would hope that one day I might write about the church more perfectly. However, I know that many still stand where I once did, and may still find this posting helpful. For this reason I have determined to leave it up, as it is, at least for now.)

Talk Grace, Tentmaker, and Wisefire.tv are three online networking sites for Christians who embrace the unfailing love of God through Jesus Christ. Many more sites embracing the message of Reunification through the Cross, and the message of the Christ Triumphant continue to spring up as this message of love spreads, and as the saints mature. May new ministries continue to multiply and mature. Today, it is so much easier to find like minded souls. Thank you Jesus.

We Are All One

Enlightenment And Oneness:
East and West

Oneness Universalism and Gnosis


The Bridal Chamber -
Becoming One

Peace:
Two Are One






We are all… One. Three succinct scriptural quotes summarize my personal experience, perspective, and belief in Oneness. Christ is all, and in all. God as All in All. And He that is joined unto the Lord is One Spirit. Together they say to me that the Christ is all, and that God is all, and that We are all… One.

Jesus is the Light that Enlightens every man. Rather than a doctrine to be expounded,
Oneness is a revelation to be experienced.

This message of Oneness is not new, but visible throughout the pages of the New Testament.  It is The Knowledge of Universal Oneness that is the basis of the scriptural appeal to love one another throughout the scripture. There is a knowing what we know, and that we know deep inside. Without this foundational revelation, and it is a revelation, those who labour, labour in vain. May we finally see the oneness of the body that we may grow strong and into maturity.

In such a worldview there is only One Universal and Cosmic Body: The body of Christ. This Christ is and becomes a revelation of oneness. When the Reunified Body of Christ is seen and experienced, the mind darkened by the torment of dualism is filled with light. There is only ONE body, the kingdom of God’s dear son, for truly, truly, Christ is all, and in all.

Love is the glue that holds the body together so that we can grow together into a Mature 
Perfect Man.  We are all learning to live in love, and be at Peace with one another.

House Church is people meeting in homes, keeping it simple. No name, no titles, no property, no corporation, no salaries etc. - just believers gathering simply, in His Name. 

The Gate Seldom Found is an interesting historical fiction novel about friends meeting in a home, and about the ministry of those who forsake all for Christ.

Those who Forsake All for Christ is a look at the teaching of Christ within Scripture and the Gospel of Thomas for those who would would be perfect, and for those who would take up the cross to follow Christ in His way.

Foot The Comings of Christ Christ Comes to us in many ways. Christ does not leave his disciples comfortless, but returns to them. Our philosophical outlook of the future is optimistic. We are a spiritually minded people, now looking for divine intervention, personally and corporately, with God working out his plan for all creation, through the revelation of Christ within us, and through a manifestation of the sons of God.

Statements of Faith






Becoming Non-creedal





Letting Go of the Chains that Bind Us




I Believe Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and Saviour of the world. This is my confession of faith. This is the statement of faith I am most comfortable with. I wish my profession of faith could be kept this simple.
Belief systems that create divisions and barriers in the body of Christ in an attempt to impose beliefs, or to exclude other Christians of differing belief are often reprehensible, and by definition heretical. Ruling over others, dictating to them, or controlling beliefs is not the way of Christ. 

Becoming Non-creedal: I have little interest in dogmatic organizational professions. Though we can learn from others, creeds can never fully represent all revelation and may limit or confine our perceptions of truth. I have found that if we are free from the confines of the theological boundaries other people and organizations would place on us, then we can truly be open to the deeper revelations God would entrust to us. If our heart is willing, we will encounter, and be enabled to embrace the truth when it is given.

As our heart enlarges and our understanding deepens, we will be willing to Let Go of the Chains that Bind Us, and we will move from glory to glory.

The Gospel of Complete Reunification


The Gospel of Christ


The Gospel of Thomas is the foundational teaching of Jesus used by the apostles as the basis of their New Testament writings and ministry.  This non-canonical Gospel of Thomas is a must read! The prologue begins:

These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.

(1) And he said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death."

(2) Jesus said, "Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All."


This is the gospel of the Kingdom. It is the message of the Cross. Continue reading The Gospel of Thomas. It is not an easy read, but for the earnest seeker and diligent student of the word the effort may be extremely worthwhile.

A Messenger  reveals a hidden key within the Gospel of Thomas and proclaims the Everlasting Gospel. The book of Revelation is a vision of the unveiling seen while meditating on the Original Gospel or Testimony of Christ, more commonly known as the Gospel of Thomas. Hidden Within this Little Scroll with the Seven Seals written on the Inside and the Backside, with the Voices of the Seven Thunders is the Tau Rho Cross, or the Key of Knowledge revealing the hidden things. And so, unveiled is the key to unlock the Book of Revelation. Interpreting each other, Phrase by phrase The interconnection between these two books is revealed. Also unveiled is the sealed up Message Of The Seven Thunders in Revelation 10. Their thundering voices reveal the oneness of the Bride and the Bridegroom. These voices are heard through the questions and comments of the seven disciples in the Gospel of Thomas. That which was, and is, and is to come is being seen.

http://www.angelfire.com/dc/universalism/Taosnakecross.gif An Introduction to The Key of Knowledge
In the Gospel of Thomas
The Key of Knowledge In the Gospel of Thomas.  Within the Gospel of Thomas, hidden at the very center and climax of the body of the text "the cross" is mentioned. The word “cross” is a “key” word. Hidden within this Coptic word for "cross" is an amalgamated alphabetic character (The Tau-Rho Cross) that even looks a bit like a cross, Together these amalgamated letters are known as The Staurogram. The Staurogram looks like a cross, but turned sideways looks even more like a key. Discover the Key of Knowledge that was hidden by the scribes, shutting up the kingdom of heaven from men.

Jesus said, “The pharisees and the scribes have taken the keys of knowledge (gnosis) and hidden them. They themselves have not entered, nor have they allowed to enter those who wish to,” (Thomas 39).

Learn how to use "The Key" to understand the Gospel, and the New Testament. The keys have been provided to their rightful owner, the body of Christ, and the interpretation of the text is there to discover. Through meditative study we may discover and enjoy the treasure. Perhaps now, possessing the key, we may open the door, and enter the kingdom.

The Joint Body Chiasm in Thomas
The Joint Body refers to the body of Christ (Ephesians 2:16).  The author appears to have coined this new word to express this revolutionary new oneness and unity between Jews and Gentiles that is created in Christ Jesus (2:13-22). The Gentiles are joint-heirs and joint-body and joint-partakers in the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.

The Joint Body Chiasm in Thomas reveals in chart form the left and the right of two essential chiastic structures in Thomas. There is a male structure (the Gentiles) and a female structure (the Jews) and they are joined together in holy matrimony. This is a great mystery illustrating the complete reunification of the all. It is presented here for the diligent student looking for treasures.

Jesus In
The Quran:
The She-camel

Of Allah








Will Hell
Eventually be Empty?








The Injeel-Quran
Key Word Comparison
The She-camel of God is the story in the Quran of an abused camel sent by God as a sign to the people. A detailed comparison between the last days of Jesus and the life of the She-camel reveals this hidden identity of the she-camel of Allah. The camel is presented as an Allegorical Allusion to Jesus and his Suffering on the cross. The Quran states that those "who deny Our revelations and scorn them, for them the gates of heaven will not be opened, nor will they enter the Garden until the camel goeth through the needle's eye." Surah 7:40. It is the she-camel that goes through the eye of the needle bringing salvation. Within this understanding, the She-camel is a reminder that the gates of heaven, and the entrance to the garden has been provided by Allah, even for the most blind of sinners. Though the punishment be severe, He is most merciful.


Will Hell Eventually be Empty? Examining the teachings of the Quran, this article asks the question: For how long will Almighty Allah punish some of His creation? It concludes that the most blind of sinners will enter the Garden when the Camel goeth through the needle's eye. Surah 7:40  The promise and hope of Universal Salvation is maintained. As this reference in the gospels declares, nothing is impossible for Allah. Matthew 19:24-26. Praise be to God, Lord of the worlds. The Compassionate, the Merciful.


The Injeel or "The Original Gospel of Christ" is repeatedly mentioned in the Holy Quran. Muslims believe this original Gospel (of Jesus) to have been... lost," The Gospel in Islam - Wikipedia. Now is the time to consider new possibilities. The Gospel of Thomas was found in Egypt in 1945. Both Thomas and The Quran share 114 divisions. Aligning saying to surah, both books share extensive similarities in thought, word, and rhetoric. Examine The Injeel-Quran Key Word Connections. These two holy writings interpret each Other. They are presented side by side With The Key Word Connections. With the discovery of "The Secret Sayings of Jesus" in the Gospel known as "Thomas", have we now recovered the lost Injeel, the lost holy book of Islam, and the original Gospel of Jesus?

The Gospel of Thomas - New Testament - Cross Reference Study


An Examination of the Writings of Jesus and the Apostles: Presenting an interesting interpretive tool: It is almost like Jesus and the Apostles left us a Cross Reference Study Bible. Examine the very interesting Key Word Connections. (Pick a book from the links to the left)

There are convincing sequential similarities in thought, word, and rhetoric between The Gospel of Thomas and several canonical writings that become plainly visible. Providing an invaluable contribution to the devotional study of the New Testament these connections appear to reveal the original thought processes behind the apostolic writings.

Aligning and combining the sayings of Jesus together with these apostolic writings, we "make the two into one." It's almost like Jesus and the apostles left us a cross reference study bible.

This is truly amazing.

The apostles appear to have relied heavily upon this Original Gospel authored by Christ, considering phrase by phrase the words of Jesus in Thomas, as they wrote their own writings. If this reliance and interconnectedness between the New Testament and Thomas is genuine, as it appears to be, then the many canonical references to "The Gospel of Christ", "The Testimony of Jesus ", " The Doctrine of Christ", " His Sayings", " The Preaching of Jesus Christ", " The Gospel of God", " The Word of God", " The Revelation of Jesus Christ", " The Everlasting Gospel", and even just " The Gospel" could all reasonably be direct references, and sometimes even veiled references to "The Gospel of Thomas"

Why did the apostles use this gospel so extensively? Thomas claims to be the Gospel authored by Christ himself, and penned by Thomas. Could apostolic acceptance of this proposition explain the connections between Thomas and the canonical writings. If so, could this gospel, that reveals the complete reunification and oneness of the all through the teachings of the bridal chamber, be the Original Gospel of Christ?

This would be revolutionary.

URfriend,
Dean Johnson
