If “God” is actually our Higher, True Self, then what is meant by the “wrath” of our Higher, True Self?
Before the Real Truth about the “wrath of God” can be clearly understood, one must first understand where, how, and why the term was first used.
Let’s try to make it as simple and clear as we can.
The term was first used in the Hebrew bible so we need to start there.
Where, when, and how did the Hebrew bible come to be?
Who were the Hebrews?
Where did they come from?
Who were their ancestors and where did their ancestors live before they became Hebrews living in Israel?
The first five books of the Old Testament (Torah; Greek: Pentateuch) is the only written history of the ancient Jewish culture that exists. Here’s how this written history came about:
The ancient Hebrews (ancestors of the Jews) were once mostly shepherds, farmers, and held other occupations associated with a developed local economy based on cooperation and trade. The main part of their ancestors’ culture lived in an area south of Babylon and south of the Euphrates river near the head of the desert. “Hebrew” actually means: those who traverse, cross over, pass through, i.e., those who wander. The term”Hebrew” was first used in the book of Genesis to describe Abraham to set him apart from the other characters in the story.
And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram. (Genesis 14:13)
Abraham is the principal character and main patriarch of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths. Without Abraham, none of these three major religions would exist. The Real Truth is: the man, Abraham, never really existed. The title was invented by the Greeks to express the traditional head and founder of the Hebrew culture that had been discussed in Hebrew oral history for many generations.
In 600 BCE, the Hebrew written language had not yet developed enough to present a good story. The Greeks, who had been writing stories for many years by then, were commissioned by Hebrew leaders around that time (600 BCE) to make a written story of Hebrew oral history.
Before the commission of Greek authors, the Hebrews passed down the stories about their culture and traditions orally. There was no such person as Abraham until the Greek writers invented the word to represent him. Before the Greeks invented the name, which is actually a title, the Hebrew oral stories related information about their “Great Father” or their “Great Patriarch.” The Greek writers needed a name for this important person to flow as well in a written Hebrew history as it did in Hebrew oral history. The story about Moses and how the Hebrews eventually made it to the land of Canaan (modern Israel) was also invented by the Greeks, but entirely based on the oral stories that Hebrew leaders had told the Greek writers whom they had hired to write their history.
For a more modern example of this, consider how and why we wrote the Book of Mormon storyline. The first mentioned characters were Lehi and his family. These characters followed the pattern of Abraham and his family. Lehi left Jerusalem in the same way, and basically for the same reasons, that Abraham left the city of Ur. Abraham took his friend, Lot, with him; our Book of Mormon hero took his best friend, Ishmael. Consider the obvious parallels between the two stories. God told Abram to leave the country of “thy kindred, and thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee.” God told Lehi the same things. Compare how the story is told in the Old Testament to how it is told in our Book of Mormon:
“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.” (Genesis 12:2-4)
The Book of Mormon’s most prominent Patriarch, Lehi, was promised the blessings of God, that God would “bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee.” (Lehi’s two rebellious sons would curse their father and receive the punishment of a dark skin.) The Land of Canaan was Abraham’s promised land, where God “[made] of thee a great nation”; the Western Hemisphere was Lehi’s land of promise where his posterity became a great nation.
According to the Book of Mormon story, “in [Lehi] shall all families of the earth be blessed.” (At least we had hoped the earth would be blessed by the story … it wasn’t.) The history of Lehi and his family was the basis of the Book of Mormon. The basis was our attempt to equalize the nations of the dark-skinned Native Americans with the white-skinned Europeans. We failed. But our attempt would have never been considered unless the storyline sounded similar and familiar to Bible-believing Americans.
Before there existed a written history to which the Hebrew people could refer as a source of their beginnings, who were they really and where did they really came from? We need to reveal the Real Truth about this. The world needs to know the Real Truth about these things.
The Hebrews’ ancestors were part of the ancient Sumerian people. They did not distinguish themselves as “Hebrews” until they became “wanderers” and nomads. How they became wanderers and nomads is also very important to understand. This part can be understood by considering the very things that are happening in our modern world.
Along one of the most important rivers to human civilization in that area at that time, the Great Euphrates, were two developing cities: Babylon to the North and Ur to the South. Babylon was on the north side of the river and Ur was on the south side. The northern most land was experiencing a great environment and a lot of cultural and economic development, mainly through industry and commerce. Thus, the city of Babylon became great and prosperous. The city of Ur, not so much. Along the busy trade routes of the Euphrates came travelers from Babylon to Ur. It didn’t take long before the people living in Ur found out about the great prosperity of the north. These Sumerians wanted the same kind of prosperity that other Sumerians, the citizens of Babylon, were experiencing.
During this period of human civilization, religion and the gods were very important to the people living in that area of the world. The people believed that if they were prospering in the land, then their gods were making it happen. If the people were doing bad, then their gods were punishing them. The people of Ur wanted the same blessings the Babylonians were receiving from the gods. They wanted the same prosperity and development as the people of Babylon. The local leaders around the area of Ur to the south weren’t making these blessings happen. And in dire times, the people always blame their leaders. Being blamed by the people for the curse of the gods, the power and control that the local leaders in Ur held over the people was being threatened.
Consider the modern movement called the Arab Spring. The natural response of the masses to obvious economic inequality is uprising and revolution, often ending in the death of their leaders.
When their lives were threatened, a few of the leaders living in Ur escaped with their families into the nearby desert. They moved their families far away from the influence of the major developing cities at that time. They wandered west through the desert towards the other major important river of that time period: the Nile. Starving, the people eventually called on the Egyptians for help. Their oral stories would tell it the way that would make the leaders look good. Of course, one of the gods had commanded them to go off into the wilderness. Of course, one of the gods had led them to the sinful nation of Egypt to be fed. Of course, their leaders were always righteous ones who were following what the gods wanted.
However, the people were confused and didn’t understand how the gods could bless one people of the same lineage (Sumerian) and curse another. The now wandering (Hebrew) people’s leaders come up with a quick solution: invent another god that was on their side. The gods that had blessed the Babylonians with prosperity were replaced with a new, single, just ONE, god: Yahweh.
Yahweh was a very jealous and angry god. If the people weren’t listening to Yahweh’s leaders on Earth, the people would be punished by Yahweh. Of course, this was very convenient for the leaders whose lives had been threatened when the people believed in the plural Babylonian gods. The wanderers were taught that they would never prosper believing in any god but the one, true god: Yahweh.
Yahweh would become the people’s true God, the ONLY God, a jealous god that would not allow the people to believe in any other god but him. He was the Great I Am … at least according to the leaders who had invented the new god. Once the people were convinced that their new god was the ONLY god, then they could be controlled and their anger subdued.
The Hebrew leaders convinced the people that they were in error when they were believing in the many Babylonian gods; and that’s why they were being punished by the ONE true God, Yahweh. IF this were true, then what did Yahweh want the people to do so that they could experience prosperity? And if Yahweh had something to tell the people, how would they get the information?
The ancient Hebrew leaders were pretty smart by then. They knew what to do. The ancient Hebrew leaders convinced their followers, first, how special they were as a collective people; that God had chosen them above all other humans upon Earth as “My People,” and that Yahweh had chosen certain men (Hebrew leaders) to lead them. Again, very convenient for the wanderer’s (Hebrew) leaders.
God’s commandments were simple: do what God’s appointed leaders told you to do, or be cursed. God’s commandments became the rules and laws of society. Whatever the few men wanted the people to do, a rule was codified to control the people and keep them in order. Of course, all rules, laws, and commandments came from Yahweh.
A very important part of Yahweh’s commandments was to make sure that God received the finest, first fruits of the harvest and the best cuts of meat from the livestock, as well as gold, silver, precious stones and spices, pretty much everything that the leaders would need to sustain their own lives and those of their wives and concubines. We know that God didn’t eat the food. We know that God didn’t need the gold, silver and precious things.
And when the people complained to their leaders about the obvious, the leaders had the solution: burn some of the food upon an altar as an offering to God and convince the people that the smoke from the burnt offering was going up to God. But what about the gold and silver and other precious things that the people were giving to their leaders for God? That was an easy one: God’s house, God’s tabernacle should always be made of the very finest materials and construction. All these made-up laws, all these made-up ordinances, everything that benefited the leaders in the name of God, were mandated by the voice of God Himself … of course.
The Hebrew leaders led their followers to the highest mountains in the area. This is where they convinced the people that their new god, Yahweh, talked to his chosen leaders, usually just one, powerful man. Look at a map of that area. Find Mt. Sinai and observe the obvious. It is the highest point in all the area. The eventual Law of Moses was given upon this mountain. Of course, the stories about Moses were invented, embellished, and changed over the years through oral recantations. The modern game, Pass It On (where one person whispers something in another’s ear and that person passes it on by whispering it in another person’s ear), should give one a reasonable idea of how easily a single sentence can be corrupted and changed over time when passed on through generation after generation orally.
Hundreds of years had passed since the first Sumerian people left the fertile areas around the river Euphrates until the time that their descendants commissioned Greek authors to make a written record of their stories. The Greeks did the best they could to construct a consistent and comprehensive written history for the Hebrews. They invented the character Moses from the story of how one of the Hebrew heroes had eventually led them out of Egypt. The Law of Moses was then written down. The Law of Moses always benefited the leaders and gave them their power and authority and provided them with the first fruits of the field and the best cuts of meat, as well as a lot of gold! Of course!
As the Hebrew leaders told their stories, they often reiterated how important it was for the people to always obey God … to always listen to and obey God’s leaders. If one wants a good example of this, read the entire chapter twenty-nine (29) of Deuteronomy. The people were always being persecuted by other nations for being separatists, believing that their god was more important than others, and that they were God’s only chosen people. When the people were upset because of their living conditions, mostly caused by their inability to get along with everyone else, once again they looked to and blamed their leaders. But since the leaders had the “word of God” written down so that they could reference it, it was easy for the leaders to place all the blame on the people.
Yahweh was angry with the people, and in his wrath, “cast them into another land, as it is this day.”
“And the Lord rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.” (Deuteronomy 29:28)
Because the people were sometimes hard to convince, and because many times the people just simply didn’t understand why God was punishing them, the leaders had an answer for that too:
“The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (Deuteronomy 29:29)
The Hebrew leaders were then doing what they do now: continually deceiving the people with their “secret things.”
Long story short:
During the 4th and 5th centuries CE (AD), at the beginning of the end of the Great Roman Empire, the people were once again seeing the obvious disparity between the rich and the poor. About this time, many of the poorer masses had heard stories of a simple man (his name was actually Inpendius) who had lived and caused some commotion when he stood up against the religious and political leaders of his day, a few hundred years before. All kinds of myths and stories about this mythical hero were floating around in the oral circles of the poor masses living in the Roman Empire. Combined with common Greek and Roman mythology, the hero of the poor and disenfranchised developed and become the Christian god and savior, Jesus, the Christ.
Since the Hebrew Old Testament of the Bible was all the people had to refer to as “God’s written word” at the time, and the fact that most poor people couldn’t read, the masses depended on their local religious leaders to tell them about God and what God expected of them. T he Roman gods weren’t treating them very well and the poor needed a new god who would bless them and bring prosperity to them as Yahweh had done to the Hebrew people of the Old Testament stories.
The New Testament was another wise attempt made by the Roman government to rein in and control the people. The people desired a jealous, angry god that would kill the Romans and bring them prosperity, like Yahweh had done for the ancient Hebrews … at least according to the stories that were read to them from the Bible. The Roman government commissioned some professional Greek writers to come up with a story that would help quiet and control the masses. The writers took the common myths in which the masses believed and created the stories of Yeshua, whom the people were taught was the incarnate son of Yahweh, the God of the Old Testament.
Because the people were taught that any viable evidence of truth must be established through three witnesses, the Greek writers invented the first Three Gospel accounts, which were very similar to each other. Contemporary scholars won’t argue too hard against the idea that the same author (they call the author, “Q”) was responsible for all three renditions. We know this author as the Hebrew-Roman, Caneaus.
Once written and published for the masses, Caneaus’ (Q’s) gospels still weren’t very convincing and effective enough at permeating the hearts and minds of the masses. For want of a better way to explain it, an actual true god intervened. A mortal lived at the time whose brain had been tweaked to understand the Real Truth about all things, just like we claim of ourselves, of Joseph Smith, and of Christopher. This man was good friends with one of Caneaus’ servants. This man, who history now has named–John the Beloved–wrote his own version of the life and times of Jesus. Caneaus read it and presented it to the Roman authorities who had commissioned him. Its profound nature and the way that it flowed impressed those in charge of canonizing the story. John’s Gospel became the fourth gospel in the new scripture.
And it came to pass … if we may use this term properly,
That the religious leaders responsible for reading the New Testament to the people wanted to add more and more to the story. The Romans, Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Thessalonians weren’t too happy, and therefore not very convinced of the stories. God had sent His ONLY Son, not to them, but to the Hebrews. Weren’t these different cultures of people just as good as the Hebrews? To mitigate the problems that arose from this obvious racism, the leaders did what leaders do: make up something else. They invented the stories attributed to Paul and all the letters Paul would write to these different groups of people. Paul was sent by God to these people to give them His Son’s message, equally as God had given it to the Hebrews.
And it came to pass … that the New Testament began to take on a life of its own. The people no longer wanted the simple Philosophy of Jesus of Nazareth, they wanted more. As the newly formulated Catholic Church began to control both government and religion, our true god, our True Self … at least one of our True Selves … stepped in again. He had to do something to stop the leaders from changing everything and adding to and corrupting the new scripture. Caneaus asked his servant’s friend to write something else that might end the controversy, and the additions. “John” wrote the book of Revelation. Its ending sealed the new scripture at last:
“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” (Revelation 22:18-19)
The threat worked. The New Testament is wrapped up and protected with the last sentences of Revelation. To keep others from changing his words and distorting his message, Revelation’s author wrote in symbolism. He took all of his symbolism from the Old Testament, but nobody was ever able to figure this out until 1987. Since none could understand his esoteric message, because of the way that he presented it, none dared change it … and the book’s own dangerous threat helped protect it.
It would take one with the same mindset as Revelation’s author to finally decipher and unfold its meaning: Revelation’s true meaning. That one’s brain was conditioned and changed on June 16, 1987. The unfolding of Revelation would come a few years later in 2006, and published as, 666, The Mark of America, Seat of the Beast; the Apostle John’s New Testament Revelation Unfolded. No one … no scholar, no priest, no prophet, no one, has ever been able to confound or explain away Christopher’s profound explanation of the book of Revelation. It is in this book that the “Wrath of God” is explained clearly and appropriately for those who seeking Real Truth.
To understand what “John” meant by the term “wrath of God,” one must first understand what “John” and Christopher knew/know about the Real Truth.
Here’s what Christopher wrote about the true meaning of “wrath of God” in the book that we had him publish:
(Taken from Section 6, The Wrath of God, pages 30 and 31.)
“… Humans have the instinctual ability to know what makes them happy and what does not. This knowledge allows them to make choices, the consequences for which they alone are responsible. With this ability to reason, which has been termed “common sense,” they are able to determine for themselves those things that perpetuate happiness, and those that take away their happiness. In order to fully appreciate and completely understand the difference, no force, no unseen entity, and no advanced being from another galaxy, intervenes to curtail the use of their free agency.
“As they experience the retribution for their actions, wise ones learn to value the actions that bring happiness, and depreciate the actions that take away from their happiness. These constant experiences propel the human condition towards a universal acceptance of values and circumstances that perpetuate and sustain the end desire of human existence—happiness. With each step taken backwards in experiencing retribution for their actions, humankind takes two steps forward. The steps backwards do slow the progress and process of arriving at a consistent state of balance and happiness, but nonetheless, these negative experiences also continue it forward.
“If natural laws and forces (instincts) mandated eternal progression towards human development and learning, there would be depreciation in the value of the intended experience. However, the subsequent ramifications of this progression are the price that must be paid to satisfy the demands of the laws that guarantee happiness.
“These ramifications are the penalties, punishments, woes, and consequences of opposing goodness and happiness. Though many humans believe that these consequences are part of the essence and penalties of a just God; a righteous Creator cannot violate the very purpose for which He exists—to provide happiness for His creations.
“Therefore, it can be said that the ‘wrath of God’ is nothing more than the non-intervention of more advanced and intelligent Beings (who could help, but choose not to), which allows the actions of free-willed beings, who are learning by their own experience about the hell they are creating for themselves.
“The corruption of man supports the dragon that breathes fire within and gives power to and keeps alive the beast, which has created the image that has left the mark upon all humankind, which suffers deservingly from The Wrath of God.”
The individual is the only god who exists. So how can one be angry and jealous of one’s own Self? How can an advanced human feel wrath?
One’s existence is for the sake and the benefit ONLY of the individual. Referring to the advanced, eternal individual as a “god” … a god’s brain’s processes that keep the brain balanced and stable can malfunction. If they malfunction, how would a god’s perfect brain respond? What would the brain do to regain its stability? The malfunction occurs when we are not doing the things that can make us happy.
“Humans have the instinctual ability to know what makes them happy and what does not. This knowledge allows them to make choices, the consequences for which they alone are responsible.” (above)
Often mortals are forced to make choices that they didn’t want to make in order to continue to exist. Most work jobs they don’t want to work so that they can exist. When we do not act completely in tune with the desires, or rather, for the needs of our advanced brain, the process malfunctions.
Think of the experience of mortal life (the production of which plays out in our advanced brain as a dream) as a natural process of our advanced brain trying to maintain an energy balance. The cells that make up the brain have one purpose only: maintain Free Will, which is this balance we call happiness. If the cells are malfunctioning, the brain has its own process of fixing the problem.
This malfunction takes place in our advanced brain, because when we allow our brain to dream the experience of mortal life, we are participating in the process with other free-willed advanced humans. Their brain’s needs, in order to maintain their brain’s stability, might be very different than ours. Each advanced person’s brain needs different degrees of energy because we are all individual, unique advanced life forms, doing different things during our conscious daily lives.
We could consider the feelings of anger and jealousy as being our brain’s natural response to not getting what we want or not doing what we want. But the idea that there is a god that becomes angry and wrathful plays only into the hands and for the benefit of the false preachers who try to get their followers to provide them with things that their advanced brain needs for stability.
As stated in another treatise, “Nothing is more important to our existence than Free Will.”
If there were no purpose for our existence, and when we die upon Earth everything about us were to end, then why would we even exist in the first place? What would be the purpose?
We exist for a purpose … a very good purpose.
We exist as mortals because the experience of mortal life is a direct and involuntary response of our advanced brain’s daily activities done in our eternal, perfect world. These advanced dreams have a purpose. If the dream process is not fulfilling the purpose for which it is needed by the brain, the brain’s natural response to the malfunction is to disregard, or rather ignore the dream by letting it play out until the brain naturally removes it.
Because as advanced humans we are connected to the dream experience with other advanced humans, when we decide to enter the parameters of the experience (similar to playing a multi-player online game over the Internet), we must abide by the rules of the game. We cannot just eliminate ourselves from the game by thinking about it and willing our dream avatar to cease to exist. Why? Because part of the rules are that other people might become dependent upon our involvement in order to supply their need.
Once we engage with other advanced humans in the game of mortal life, which is played out in our minds similar to a dream, we must allow our dream self to continue until the game, not our advanced Free Will, eliminates it. This is often done through murder, mostly through war.
For clarification, if the brain process malfunctions, or rather, if we are not living completely according to our individual Free Will as mortals, our advanced conscious Self can ignore what is going on in the part of the advanced brain where the mortal experience is taking place. Although it can be ignored, it cannot be stopped as long as another advanced human is feeding off of our mortal Self’s existence. Until nobody cares about us any longer in this lone and dreary world, we should continue to live until we are killed off in some other way. This is why suicide is so hard for a mortal to consider and do. This is why “God” doesn’t want us to commit suicide.
To increase the possibility that we will be killed during mortal life, regardless of how we are killed, our advanced self completely ignores, and in a way, disengages from the game that is being played with other advanced players. When our advanced brain disconnects, the dream experience is still occurring, again, because other players might be dependent upon our involvement in their mortal life. But disconnected, the mortal brain does not receive any influence from our advanced brain. When our advanced Self has completely disconnected and no longer tries to intervene, we lose focus on our mutual humanity. This is the very reason why mortals justify war, inequality, and injustice to groups of people or a person that do[es] not agree with them. If we were connected to our True Self, there is no way we would ever justify things that kill us … or could kill us. Economic disparity could kill us.
Because we’ve destroyed each other as mortals upon this earth five times in the past, it is highly unlikely that we are going to make it through this sixth dispensation of mortal time. The less we pay attention to and focus on our shared, equal humanity, the more proof we have that we are disconnected from our True Selves … from God.
We truly are experiencing the “Wrath of God” … in so many ways.
