Page XXVI of the Legend of Thomas

The tyrants received no relief! the yoke of burden was on them! the 9th chapter of Isaiah the 137:9th verse of Psalms. No rocks were found!

  • Logion 27 Yeshua, “If you do not fast as regards the world, you will not find the kingdom. If you do not observe the Sabbath as a Sabbath, you will not see the father.”
  • Matthew 5:8-20 You are the light of the world. A city located on a hill cannot be hidden.
    People do not light a lamp and put it under a basket but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they can see your good deeds and give honor to your Father in heaven. Fulfillment of the Law and Prophets “Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have not come to abolish these things but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth pass away not the smallest letter or stroke of a letter will pass from the law until everything takes place. So anyone who breaks one of the least of these commands and teaches others to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever obeys them and teaches others to do so will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness goes beyond that of the experts in the law and the Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
  • Matthew 6:33 But above all pursue his kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
  • Matthew 18:3 and said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn around and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven!
  • Luke 12:31 Instead, pursue his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.
  • Luke 13:5 No, I tell you! But unless you repent you will all perish as well!”
  • Luke 18:17 I tell you the truth, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.”
  • John 3:5 Jesus answered, “I tell you the solemn truth, unless a person is born of water and spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
  • John 6:46 (Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God – he has seen the Father.)
  • John 14:9 Jesus replied, “Have I been with you for so long, and you have not known me, Philip? The person who has seen me has seen the Father! How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
“The age long Babylon: Sodom, Gomorrah, Egypt, Tyre, Nineveh – Rome, many names for the World from before. If the World ends today, why shall any tears be shed? Can the kingdoms stand divided against themselves? Perhaps on the surface each side appeared opposed, the masterpiece of the Illusionist, engage or support any side and, the fire was fueled and set ablaze.
Should the fiddle play on the rooftop? For want of another master the pillar of salt was turned. What if, the World was again coming to the end? The World had many names before, and many names thereafter come again. The perception warped and was bent from the gravity of the situations and/or the circumstances. The light “of the World,” the light from the World – prolong the inevitable, but the end – was inevitably appointed.
Almost, theological fatalism?”
    Origami read the gloomy entry from the past and pondered, what efforts in the end truly altered any outcome? The child recalled, the L-rd grants happiness in the works and the toils by the hands of man, but not always so, and Solomon wrote everything was vanity.
Origami closed the writings on this day, “caught in the gravity of, Venus.”
Notes:
  • From which was inspiration drawn: the World, Church, the L-rd (the Father, Son, and Spirit)?
  • Was inspiration based on authority? The authority of a particular body or offices? Shall we cast a lot to decide if, at the time both the Levitical and Aaronic priesthoods disagreed (the allotted cast – every outcome, was known)?
  • Perhaps the basis began in the Beginning or Genesis? The Torah (and such writings) which continued under the authorship of the Jewish peoples, allusions made from the beginning. Jesus had never written a book, then, the question was, who had written the books which were contained in the partitions of the NT?
  • The Old Testament Canon was completed well before the blessed feet touched upon the earth.
  • Moses lived after Abraham well after the actual beginning. Perhaps divine inspiration needed be addressed. Was the Torah handed down “orally” the traditions from beforehand? What historian was there if not Moses? are any archaeological findings discovered to substantiate such speculations?
  • The Apocrypha was already in circulation at the time of beloved Jesus Christ. New Testament allusions – Jude arguably referred to the Book of Enoch, contained in the partitioned Apocrypha.
  • If by office, authority was given to write the books of the Law, Prophets, and the Writings, and add to them by inspiration was the inspiration given to them by direct dictation, or by an idea/ideal which utilized the skill of the author and the developed talent?
  • Was the ultimate litmus test the works of the forefathers before them?
  • Jesus sent the Seventy, perhaps Missionaries, followed by the Great Commission, then the Evangelist/Historian Luke, then the offices of illumination Pastor/Teacher as was written in the book Timothy? Was Luke the Evangelist; an individual or, the contributions of authors which appeared from time to time? Matthew? Yes or No? Make a decision! If Isaiah was not written by a single Prophet, but a school of Prophets, then why might the model of the Old Testament be rejected?
  • Were the works of the 70 and/or the Commissioned which followed after inspired?
  • Exactly what process was used for the New Testament canonization?
  • Perhaps no process was used!? What books were already in circulation at the time of the NT canonization? Among them the texts of Gnosticism flourished; that is, at the time of the NT canonization. Had the Gnostic texts at the time been declared heretical? Was the basis for heresy one person later to declare something heretical for it to be heretical? What if the works declared heretical was declared by the deaf and blind?
  • None of the translator pericopes are the same as other translations and they were not written in the Scriptures. Are the pericopes inspired? any less truthful than the verses which followed after them? Today had the L-rd inspired the conversion of your testimony, if 100 scholars suggested no, who shall be believed?
  • Are manuscripts without error? Scribal or otherwise?
  • The books of the Old Testament do not share the same order from the Jewish Canonization. The blood of Abel to Zechariah shall be avenged.
  • Coming back to the direct dictation, as if the Spirit dictated, word for word, the entire Scriptures of the New Testament, if not, then what was required for Apostolic authors? A direct relationship to Jesus Christ or perhaps the relations of a direct Disciple/Apostle? Luke or Paul? Were they taught by the L-rd Jesus Christ?
  • Is logical extension the same as inspiration of the L-rd? Which do you support: apostolic succession or apostolic doctrine (developed throughout two millenniums)?
  • Perhaps the Mount of Olives may answer the question? Coming back to the Torah the L-rd descended at Mt. Sinai, (in Moses) “to speak” the words received by Israel? Who or What prepared Moses – the blessed vessel to receive the L-rd (if so)?
  • Which authoritative body or historian was there when the L-rd began the beginning? Who shall be the turned to source?
  • Let us decide? The personifications (gods) of the laws of nature, or perhaps the celestial court of heavenly creatures and/or angels?
  • Are all scholars agreed on all the matters? Can a scholar if not one but two or three be found which disagreed? Exactly what was the academia “scholar” majored in: which agreed or disagreed? The council of Nicaea had few, which disagreed, on the subject of the deity.
  • How many centuries past? Interesting!
  • IT stood upon the balcony above the Senate floor.

    The Prodigal Son moment occurred;

    man cannot grant true freedom and liberty.
  • The true idols invisible as they are, controlled whether avoided or battled.
  • “Grant what thou commandest and then command what thou wilt.” – Saint Augustine (/ˈôɡəstēn/). The prayer heard from around the Christian world, the prayer the premise the basis for Monergism. John 6:44, No man can come to me (Total Inability) unless the father (Unconditional Election) who sent me draws them (Irresistibly), and I shall raise him up (Limited Atonement) at the last day (Perseverance of the Saints).
  • Ezekiel 34:11 I am, removing it.
  • Ezekiel 36:25-27 L-rd, take away these desires for the idols!
  • All forms of man-made governments are corruptible by depravity and, anything man touched was susceptible by the effects of sin, all forms must fall to the true theocracy of the L-rd!
  • What motivated anybody from day to day? Exactly how many good deeds are masked by the depraved nature of mankind? Human reason justified anything the idol factory, the heart of Adam, desired.
  • By faith alone! (Sola Fide).
