‘Virgin’ Birth and ‘Immaculate’ Conception?

Just as the physical death of Jesus at the end of His life marked His exit from earthly life, so did His birth as a baby herald His physical arrival onto the Earth and into earthly existence. For in accordance with the inviolability of The Divine Laws He came to fulfil, The Son of God could not circumvent The Law that to be born of woman on Earth, the seed must first be placed within the womb by a natural procreative event. Subsequent to impregnation, a lawful gestation period of nine months in that especially-chosen and thus especial womb.

Since we cannot deny the fact of Mary’s earthly pregnancy or the earthly birth of Jesus as a baby, should we dare to believe that those earthly processes might just have been preceded by an earthly conception too? Or is that going too far? Or is it simply a matter of religious fear masquerading as “the ostensible guardian of religious righteousness” standing ready to condemn any attempt to delve logically into what was clearly a completely natural event? For Jesus issued, and was thus delivered, from Mary’s womb. Even though a perfectly natural birth, it was, nonetheless, one of stupendous import; an incarnation ordained and sanctified by Divinity Itself.

Now, because every human spirit incarnating on Earth requires a physical vessel in which to dwell and through which to work, Jesus, too, needed a physical body to carry out His Work. However, all such bodies must come onto the Earth as a baby from a birth-mother. This is only possible with an earthly conception to begin with.

Does the idea of an earthly conception, then, denigrate the greatness or purity of the person of Jesus or His inherent Divinity? No, of course not. What about the purity of Mary herself, or her especial Calling? Would we regard her as being somehow soiled or impure if a conception was necessary before Jesus could be born onto the Earth? Here, again, of course not. If we did, it would be very difficult, indeed, to reconcile the birth of The Son of God from out of a woman of the Earth whose necessary purity for that purpose was somehow compromised through a natural act of copulation Divinely-sanctified for The very One from The Divine.

Destruction by Fire!

The question of “Destruction by Fire”, long mulled over theologically, has now also been assessed from the scientific standpoint. From the earth-science perspective – and perhaps to a large degree from the theological side with regard to an Apocalyptic scenario – destruction by fire for global humanity tends towards such things as intense and widespread volcanic activity, a meteor impact, extreme drought, and perhaps prolonged solar activity.

Yet the real answer, whilst simple and straightforward, is ultimately far more profound for we human beings of Planet Earth than any notion which might suggest catastrophic events as being the primary driver for destruction by fire, and humanity thereby being physically burned. Though, of course, with certain natural phenomena, that is not just possible but very likely for some. Moreover, even for very many when such phenomena finally gives vent to its full power at its time of ordination. Now, whilst that will one day be a problematic reality for humankind, the distilled meaning of ‘destruction by fire’ here means something very, very different. So even though the word fire usually means flames, burning and heat, does it actually mean that here? From The Apocrypha, The Book of Esdras, Chapter 13, Verse 2, the prophet Ezra recounts a dream which is afterwards interpreted for him by the “Messenger of Light”. The key to understanding the meaning of the “fire” that Peter alludes to – and would no doubt have understood – lies in the following relevant excerpts. Initially featuring the sea wherefrom a wind arose and stirred up the waves, Ezra’s dream then showed the wind make something like the figure of a man emerge from the heart of the sea. That man then:

“…flew with the clouds of heaven…”, and wherever he turned his face to look, “…everything under his gaze trembled, and whenever his voice issued from his mouth…”,

all who heard it “…melted as wax melts when it feels the fire…”.

After this Ezra beheld an “…innumerable multitude of men gathered together from the four winds of heaven…” to make war against the man who came up out of the sea. Ezra saw the “man” carve out for himself a great mountain and fly up onto it. But he was unable to see or recognise the region or place where it was. After that he saw that all who had gathered to fight him were “…much afraid, yet dared to fight”. When the multitude rushed at him, “…he neither lifted his hand nor held a spear or weapon of war”. But Ezra observed how he:

“…sent forth from his mouth as it were a stream of fire, and from his lips a flaming breath, and from his tongue he shot forth a storm of sparks”.

Ezra saw that all three were mingled together – “the stream of fire”, “the flaming breath” and “the great storm”. These fell on the attacking multitude and burned them all up. Nothing was left but the dust of ashes and the smell of smoke. After this Ezra saw the same “man” come down from the mountain and call to another multitude which was peaceable. In great fear Ezra awoke and besought an interpretation from the Most High. His petition was answered, and the key elements of the vision follow. The Messenger then spoke:

“This is the interpretation of the vision. As for your seeing a man come up from out of the heart of the sea, this is he whom the Most High has been keeping for many ages, who will himself deliver his creation, and he will direct those who are left. And as for your seeing wind and fire and a storm coming out of his mouth, and as for his not holding a spear or weapon of war, yet destroying the onrushing multitude which came to destroy him, this is the interpretation.”

The “interpreter” then tells Ezra that the time would come when:

“…bewilderment of mind…” would come over those “…who dwell on the earth”. And they would make war against one another, “…city against city, place against place, people against people, and kingdom against kingdom”. “And when these things come to pass and the signs occur which I showed you before, then my Son will be revealed, whom you saw as a man coming up from out of the sea.”

 

Did Jesus’ death on the Cross really absolve humankind of their Sin?

The final act played out both on Golgotha and for those in the Sanhedrin who actively plotted to bring about His death, was wrought by a powerful earthquake. Sufficiently strong to shatter the floor of the Temple of Jerusalem, the convulsive transfer of energy from the Earth to the great building tore asunder the heavy curtain that protected The Holy of Holies.

The odds of that particular earth-tremor occurring with such precise convergence to, ostensibly, ‘coincide’ with the exact moment Jesus died, would surely be in the order of millions to one. That natural event should be proof enough of how terribly wrong His execution was, for even the Forces of Nature vented their anger and fury at the murder of The Son Of God: He Who once Commanded the same Forces of Nature to cease their ‘storm-work’ activity on the Sea of Galilee with the admonition: “Peace. Be still!”

As we have often stressed, such an injustice is not even accepted in earthly courts of law. If it were, imagine the outcry – from all of you especially. So why and how can human beings who proudly call themselves Christians [i.e., followers of, and believers in, Christ] accept a notion that such a thing would be acceptable to The Creator Himself : He Who is Perfect Love but also Perfect Justice?

If you truly believe that such an aberrant tenet would be acceptable to The Almighty, then you must also logically accept the notion that the group of Roman soldiers who actually carried out His Crucifixion were blessed for all time, and would follow Jesus into heaven upon their death. And what about Judas? Why has sainthood not been conferred upon him? Surely he, too, must be included among the especially blessed – even before that particular group of Roman soldiers – for is he not the key player in this ridiculous and infantile scenario? 

If you yet still seriously believe such a thing, then do not hide behind 2,000 years of Earth-time to shield you from that most insidiously-evil event. Instead, have the inner courage to put yourselves in the place of the small group of executioners at His Crucifixion and actively take part in the murder of The One Whom you profess to believe in. Be part of that Roman squad on that terrible day that you nauseously commemorate so wrongly: Black Friday.

Help to lay the cruelly-tortured and bleeding body of The Son of God on that rough and splintered “cross of death”. Feel His blood spattering on your skin – for there are no niceties such as rubber gloves to protect your delicate hands. Next, take up the hammer. And with it, drive the nails through His hands into the wood of the crossbeam. Ensure, however, that you do it correctly so that the weight of His especial body will not tear His once-healing hands away from those terrible spikes when that dark, death-cross is raised.

And as you ‘drive those nails home’, remember to look into His dying, pain-wracked eyes and say to Him:

“I nail you to this cross because in my deed I prove my great Christian love for you because you came to die for me and my sins. Even though you have already suffered so much, I offer you yet more pain and torture. I know you will understand and will one day welcome me into your Kingdom because I have now proved my faith to you by helping you to die on this cross.”

How foolish a belief. How utterly absurd.

Such a belief is tantamount to idolatry of the worst kind, but self-idolatry – of human beings – and not of reverence and worship of The Most High or of He Who was and is a Part out of Him.

JESUS: The SON OF GOD; designated as both The Word Of God and The Love Of God; that is who you symbolically murder each time you tremulously “…thank ‘Him’ for dying for your sins”.

Even the words of The Bible – that especial Work which you hold up to the world as The Living Word Of God – condemns that terrible act in no uncertain terms. Peter, the Apostle designated by Jesus as “the rock” upon which His Teachings could be built, “tells it like it is”. After receiving “Power from On High” at Pentecost and speaking in the various dialects of the region, the crowd that had gathered accused the Apostles of being drunk. Peter countered with the following:

“Men of Israel! Listen to these statements: Jesus the Nazarene, a Man pointed out as from God by powers, and wonders, and signs, which God did through Him amongst you, as you yourselves know; having betrayed, you murdered Him by crucifixion through lawless hands...”   (Acts 2:22-23, Fenton. All emphases mine.)

Jesus himself gave the clearest and simplest indication of how this event should be viewed.  His noble prayer thus stands as an indictment against those who murdered Him then, and against those today who still very wrongly believe that His painful and brutal death on that Cross could somehow be sanctified and Divinely Blessed by An Almighty God as some kind of loving act of propitiatory sacrifice to cleanse the evil and sin of an undeserving humanity

The very words of the prayer itself stand in rightful accusation against such an evil distortion of the great and incomprehensible Love of The Creator.

“Father forgive them, for they know not what they do!

Thus: They did the wrong thing.

The largest Chr…

The largest Christian church — the Catholic Church and Catholicism — on its European soil and across the globe during the Age of Exploration, for centuries promoted, promulgated, preached and terrorised the masses to blindly accept appalling distortions of sacred Bible Truth. Various Popes — so-called ‘representatives’ of The Most High — even resorted to the dagger, poison and slander to gain and hold power.

In the 21st century, the number of Christian ‘churches’ preaching their brand  of ‘Bible religiosity’ simply “blows the mind”.   Yet, there exactly is the ‘nub’, Bible interpretation from global Christianity’s ‘Face-Book’,  The Bible:

Is it simply a religious work?      Perhaps also an historical one?    Common Christian belief would probably agree on both counts.  However, many books can lay claim to being great historical/religious works.  So, is The Bible a greater ‘Work’?  If so, why?  What would set it apart from all other ‘similar’ works?  Even if we were to accept the general view of Christians that it is “inspired of God”, the same claim is made by the followers of other ‘great’ religious works.

In a nutshell, The Bible does stand apart from other so-called ‘religious’ teachings because it is, in the final analysis, the supreme Scientific Work. Science, however, on a scale so stupendous that it transcends all so-called earth science and relegates that discipline to the shadows.  For it ultimately explains the very structure of Creation itself!

Sir Isaac Newton, the great colossus of science: mathematician, astronomer and theologian, understood that reality — and stated so.  For precise Law and logic rules the cosmos and beyond, not foolish human religiosity. Therefore: The great “questions to life” can only be answered from Law and logic.  So, too, all the primary tenets of Christianity.

Creation of the world in 7 ‘days’. 

The ‘virgin birth’.

Physical resurrection and ascension.

He ‘died for us’.

— and many more so-called “mysteries”.
This website Blog and Twitter site will, step by step from this point forward, lay bare the serious failings of those tenets to allow the real Truth of the Bible and the Life of The SON of GOD — JESUS — to shine forth to smash away crass religiosity driving all Christian “churches” at this time.
