The Nag Hammadi Library
Among the books that had been deemed unorthodox by a council of men…from various backgrounds were the Gospel of Thomas , The Gospel of Philip, and the Book of Mary Magadalena. These were thrown into a bucket of teachings called Gnostic Christianity— When I purchased a copy of the Nag Hammadi Library years ago, I read things and never really understood a lot of it… so I deemed it interesting… but didn’t give it the place on the mantle with the Book of Enoch.
Because of my lack of understanding in the way of which this taught … and only having four gospels to learn from the words of Jesus, of which were all summaries of our Lord’s ministry of three and a half years, it occurred to me after writing the previous blog and speaking of the modern church idea of the “silent 400 years” from Malachi to the birth of our Lord… I wondered again of all the miracles and teachings the Lord did…surely there was more. There were many burnings of scrolls of his works. And many scroll burnings before and after the council of Nicea merged the followers of the way into a one world religion with a committee of men who decided what was and was not orthodox.
I recently heard a scholar lecturing on the marvels of the pineal gland describe how 9 people determined for the entire medical field of pyschiatry a host of new mental disorders, that no one man or any committee of men, especially 9, should ever have that much power. I totally agree. And my mind processed a lot of comparisons… WHO, CDC, UN, EU, and among the many other things like Pelosi and her congress, etc., I thought of the Council of Nicea….making the decisions of what was orthodox and what was not orthodox and throwing out all the books of the Bible that didn’t suit their opinions. Good grief when compared to that… it took my red flag meter from 0 to 100 fast.
Having just reread the book of Thomas and writing on it in brief, I was triggered to go back and read again. So I did and it OPENED MY EYES WIDER!
This passage from the book of Thomas popped out at me.
(21) Mary said to Jesus, “Whom are your disciples like?” He said, “They are like children who have settled in a field which is not theirs. When the owners of the field come, they will say, ‘Let us have back our field.’ They will undress in their presence in order to let them have back their field and to give it back to them.“
I recalled how they did just that at the council of Nicea in 325 AD. They made concessions and blended the Roman religion with the teachings of Jesus and allowed the theft of the word of God. They undressed and let the unorthodox steal and tear up their scrolls, and scriptures and heck… they handed the entire planting field of the Gentiles right back to them by allowing it. The Book of Enoch that was taught from by Noah, Shem, to all his sons and daughers and generations of their sons and daughters all the way to Abraham and his son Isaac and Jacob. Remember Shem outlived Abraham by 35 years. The books that contained the teachings that the prophets learned from and carried on to the days of our Lord and were still used at the time of the Council of Nicea! They litterally undressed in their presence and gave them their sacred books and the field to preach sun worship blended with a new collection of Bible books was birthed. There was no one standing up together and saying…shove your one world religion Constantine. They literally undressed and showed their nakedness. Their lack of something….??? It appears to be faith for they were bullied. One did depart and had no part of it when it went south…
And then this vital passage…..that I did not write about popped at me blaring …..
(37) His disciples said, “When will you become revealed to us and when shall we see you?” Jesus said, “When you disrobe without being ashamed and take up your garments and place them under your feet like little children and tread on them, then will you see the Son of the Living One, and you will not be afraid.”
Was he saying when we take the false doctrine that has become our garment since we willingly handed over the truth and let them have the field to plant their own seeds to harvest for the ruler of this world? Was he saying when we take off the old teachings that have not light and stomp on them,and put them under our feet…that that is when we shall see the truth of the Son of God? The truth that has been hidden from us and trampled on? Is it time to now take back all truth and stop following the blind leading the blind who see not with their eye(s)? Or do we continue to select from the menu of the 41,000+ versions of orthodox food that was cooked up for us to eat by those who decided in committee what shall be put on our platter? What scrolls shall we eat up that are like honey in our mouths and bitter in our bellys?
The verse, Thomas 37, is clear that the Lord was seeing into the future and knew the battles that would take place from the beginning unto the end over the truth of the Word of God to all of the Followers of The Way of Jesus. We, just like they, have allowed the thieves of the Word of God to carry away many truths. We have a stigma to not look at many books. Those who have insisted to look early on, have been called many bad names. And those today who dare to look even deeper are yet still considered blasphemers and told things like, “How dare you decide such things? That’s blasphemy! Shame on you.”
(38) Jesus said, “Many times have you desired to hear these words which I am saying to you, and you have no one else to hear them from. There will be days when you will look for me and will not find me.”
(39) Jesus said, “The Pharisees and the scribes have taken the keys of Knowledge and hidden them. They themselves have not entered, nor have they allowed to enter those who wish to. You, however, be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves.”
(40) Jesus said, “A grapevine has been planted outside of the Father, but being unsound, it will be pulled up by its roots and destroyed.”(this is an evil force)
The grapevine that has been planted outside of the Father is becoming very clear by its’ fruit. The Lord said, by being unsound it will be pulled up by its roots and destroyed. Are we beginning to see it? Are we beginning to pull at it? We cannot pull out what we cannot see. Is this what is meant by the blind leading the blind and they both shall fall into the ditch? One thing is sure…this shall be pulled up by its roots and destroyed whether we see it or not.
That being said, I truly believe the Lord that the Father sent The Holy Spirit to teach us and show us what is true and what is twisted.
Of which I first want to share the history of the title of Mary which is that of Magdalena. Which means a tower to the tribe of Benjamin. The Male Tower was called the Magdal of the Tribe and the Female Tower was given the title of the Magdalena. That is why in our New Testament every time they refer to Mary of Magdalena, they use the title. It was not a last name, nor was it because she was from a fishing village. Those are false interpretations.
In the past in writing my book, the Spear of Destiny, I did extensive research on Mary Magalena and found many hidden truths. I wanted to present the Gospel of Mary Magdalena, but was nudged that I must first present a bit of the real history before ever attempting to show the Nag Hammandi Gospel of Mary Magdalena. It is my opinion that Mary was an Elect Lady and her image and reputation has not only been hidden from us since the time of our Lord…it has all but been erased. She was such a threat to the church that the Pope in 571 AD declared her a whore. It was not until July 22, 1969 that the Pope declared Mary a Saint. Up until then, the Church had deemed Mary Magdalene a prostitute to dishonor her and deny her as well as all women their rightful place in the church.
It appears that even though the new Church had declared many books unorthodox and set out with a Latin written word to only be spoken from the church heads AKA Theologeans, that many continued to teach the teachings they knew and believed in and this was not wanted. Spiritual warfare and the gates of hell were always raising war against God and His children. We are no different today. We are at war with principalities and powers in dark places. But Mary Magdalene is slowly coming out into the light. On June 10, 2016 Pope Francis came out and announced a decree declaring that Mary Magdalena was the Apostle to the Apostles. Wonder of wonders and from now on, July 22nd is the day determined to be a memorial of Saint Mary Magdalene to a feast on the church’s liturgical calendar. Pope Francis upholds Mary Magdalene as Apostle – Magdalene Publishing
Well, I believe that’s because many have discovered the hidden truths and it just cannot be hidden much longer. Especially since for the last 2,000 years or so, the people of the South of France have celebrated the arrival of the three Maries and those are Mary Magdalena, Mary the Mother of Jesus, and her sister Mary Salome. Few people ever knew of this before the days of the internet. Many who did hear of it, brushed it off as a stupid south of France cult thing, or a silly festival. The truth is …it happened and it is true.
The following collection of data is attributed to many sources and one rich source among the many is Laurence Gardner, Kt FSA, is an internationally known sovereign genealogist, historical lecturer, and the appointed Jacobite Historiographer Royal. I apologize for not having listed all of the sources, but this work is a collection of work that has been done over the span of more than 20 years. And collected for my own personal understanding and seeking knowledge of truth. I wanted to present the Gospel of Mary Magdalena, but was nudged that I must first present a bit of the real history before ever attempting to show the Nag Hammandi Gospel of Mary Magdalena.
We begin this journey with a strange stone. And a strange inscription that appears to represent a tower. Let us dive on in…..
“And of Benjamin he said, The beloved of the LORD shall dwell in safety by him; and the LORD shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders.” (Deuteronomy 33:12)
The Pillar of The Tribe of Benjamin
Magdalene -In Hebrew, “pillar” is a “M’GD’L” or “Magdal.” The chief male pillar of the tribe of Benjamin was called the “Magdal”. The female chief pillar of the tribe was called the Magdalene. So it would be accurate to say of Mary of Magdalene, that she was indeed “Mary the Pillar (of her tribe). and the was chief heir of the tribe of Benjamin. The 12th Tribe of Israel had been singled out for a very special and exalted blessing Moses pronounced blessings on the patriarchs of each. Of Benjamin, he said, “The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by him & shall cover him all the day long, he shall dwell between his shoulders.”
It was later signified by the Knights Templar as a red cross to represent – between the shoulders.
A person who was put in my path had marveled at the fact that I was so aware of the truth of Mary. He said to me,“I am please to know you knew of Mary’s status – very pleased. I once asked my Jesuit mentor, of all the records that the church hides from us by their omitting of them in their bible and refuse to openly discuss what do they see as the most dangerous for us to know. He responded with, “because we are not to know who we are”.
Now this man was a Jesuit, and it was through him that I learned that they were taught of all of the books that were hidden from us. Might I also add, this encounter was brief, but informative, for I did not know they were taught from these forbidden books. I had other ideas, and still do, I’m sure there are many more books. No wonder the Jesuit Trained Fauci thinks of all of humanity as mindless followers of mandates and feeds us mandate propaganda with such ease, along with his thus taketh the jab nonsense. These have gotten away with evil for a very, very long time. It appears they are allowed to see… just no one else. Whatever they are seeing, there actions tell me it is not the God of Jesus.
In the Gospel of Thomas, he said, “Jesus said, Those who seek should not stop seeking until they find. When they find, they will be awestruck. When they are awestruck, they will become amazed, and will reign over the All.”
Which brings us to an interesting Biblical Prophetic fulfillment!
Mary of Magdalene is a title, not a first and last name as we’ve been told. She is of the tribe of Benjamin and the Magdalene of the tribe which is in line to be Queen of the tribe. The male of the tribe is the Magdal. Moses, blessed the 12 tribes of Israel. His blessing for the tribe of Benjamin is found in Deuteronomy 33:12. “Of Benjamin he said, ‘May the beloved of the Lord dwell in security by Him, Who shields him all the day. Magdalene in Hebrew meant Tower. So Mary of Magdalene was the Tower of the Tribe of Benjamin.
What does this mean? Remember the Male Tower of the Tribe of Benjamin was called the Magdal and was the Chief in line to be King over the Tribe. The female Tower was the Chieftess of the tribe and in line to be the Queen of the Tribe of Judah. Everyone at the time of Jesus knew this. Mary was an Elect Lady, a Princess of the Tribe of Benjamin. Magdalena was her title, not her name. It has been hidden from all of us on purpose. Everyone at the time of Jesus knew this. It was also the duty of the tribe of Benjamin to keep track of the geneologies of all the tribes.
Herod was fearful of Jesus reclaiming his right to be King of Israel because he was in line to be king and Herod was a political appointment by Caesar. Mary of Magdalena was in line to be Queen and that would have made a Royal Wedding. The King of Judah and the Queen of Benjamin. This is why the Chief Priests and Pharisees kept asking Jesus if he was the King. Jesus told them my Kingdom is not of this world. This is why they accused him of calling himself a king. And why Pontious Pilot asked him are you a King. This is why they put the words “King of the Jews” on a sign over his head on the cross. They all knew his geneology and knew he was in line to be king… and they didn’t trust if he would change His mind and decide to claim it.
SO LET’S TAKE A JOURNEY ….
FAST FORWARD To Provence in AD 63
Mary Magdalene died in Provence in AD 63. (Two thousand years ago Provence was part of Roman Gaul,) In that very year, Joseph of Arimathea built the famous chapel at Glastonbury in England as a memorial to the Messianic Queen.
This was the first ‘above-ground’ Christian church in the world, and in the following year Mary’s son Jesus Justus dedicated it to his mother. Jesus the Younger had in fact been to England with Joseph before, at the age of twelve, in AD 49.
In the middle ages Glastonbury Abbey was one of England’s most ancient and respected religious houses and Joseph was widely accepted to be its founder. First among Christian nations: Glastonbury, Joseph of Arimathea and the council of Konstanz | richardhaymanblog (wordpress.com)
It was this event which inspired William Blake’s famous song, Jerusalem: “And did those feet in ancient time, walk upon England’s mountains green.” But who was Joseph of Arimathea, the man who assumed full control of affairs at the Crucifixion? And why was it that Jesus’ mother, his wife and the rest of the family accepted Joseph’s intervention without question?
IN 900 AD, THE CHURCH OF ROME DECLARED JOSEPH OF ARIMATHEA WAS THE UNCLE OF JESUS…. ANOTHER LIE.
As late as the year 900, the Church of Rome decided to announce that Joseph of Arimathea was the uncle of Jesus’ mother Mary. And from that time, portrayals of Joseph have shown him as being rather elderly at the Crucifixion, when Mother Mary was herself in her fifties. Prior to the Roman announcement, however, the historical records of Joseph depicted a much younger man. He was recorded to have died at the age of 80 on 27 July AD 82, and thus would have been aged 32 at the time of the Crucifixion. In fact, Joseph of Arimathea was none other than Jesus Christ’s own brother, James, and his title had nothing whatever to with a place name. Arimathea never existed.
It therefore comes as no surprise that Joseph negotiated with Pilate to place Jesus in his own family tomb. The hereditary “Arimathea” title was an English corruption of the Graeco-Hebrew style ha-Rama-Theo, meaning “of the Divine Highness”, or “of the Royal Highness” as we’d define it today. And quite fitting also for being one of Righteousness.
Which make the verse in Thomas much more meaningful. Where the disciples ask the Lord who they should follow:
(12) The disciples said to Jesus, “We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader?” Jesus said to them, “Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth come into being.”
Since Jesus was the senior Messianic heir-the Christ, Khristos or King-then his younger brother was the Crown Prince-the Royal Highness, Rama-Theo. In the Nazarene hierarchy, the Crown Prince always held the patriarchal title of “Joseph”-just as Jesus was a titular “David” and his wife was a “Mary”. In the early fifth century, Jesus and Mary’s descendent Fisher Kings became united by marriage to the Sicambrian Franks, and from them emerged a whole new ‘reigning’ dynasty. They were the noted-
Merovingian Kings who founded the French monarchy and introduced the well-known fleur-de-lys (the ancient Jewish symbol of circumcision) as the royal emblem of France. From the Merovingian succession, another strain of the family established a wholly independent Jewish kingdom in southern France: the Kingdom of Septi-mania, which we now know as the Languedoc. And the early princes of Toulouse, Aquitaine and Provence were all descended in the Messianic bloodline of the Holy Grail. Septimania was granted to the Royal House of David in 768, and Prince Bernard of Septimania later married a daughter of Emperor Charlemagne.
Also from the Fisher Kings came another important parallel line of succession in Gaul. Whereas the Merovingian Kings continued the patrimonial ‘male’ heritage of Jesus, this other line perpetuated the matriarchal heritage of Mary Magdalene in a ‘female’ line. They were the dynastic Queens of Avallon in Burgundy, the House del Acqsmeaning “of the waters”, a style granted to Mary Magdalene in the early days when she voyaged on the sea to Provence. Those familiar with Arthurian and Grail lore will by now have recognized the ultimate significance of this Messianic family of the Fisher Kings, the Queens of Avallon and the House del Acqs (corrupted in Arthurian romance to “du Lac”).
The descendant heirs of Jesus posed an enormous threat to the Roman High Church because they were the dynastic leaders of the true Nazarene Church. In real terms, the Roman Church should never have existed at all, for it was no more than a ‘hybrid’ movement comprised of various pagan doctrines attached to a fundamentally Jewish base.
Jesus was born in 7 BC and his birthday was on the equivalent of 1 March, with an ‘official’ royal birthday on 15 September to comply with dynastic regulation. But, when establishing the Roman High Church in the fourth century, Emperor Constantine ignored both of these dates and supplemented 25 December as the new Christ’s Mass Day-to coincide with the pagan Sun Festival.
Later, at the Synod of Whitby in 664, the bishops expropriated the Celtic festival of Easter (Eostre), the Goddess of Spring and Fertility, and attached a wholly new Christian significance. In so doing, they changed the date of the Celtic festival to sever its traditional association with the Jewish Passover.
Which brings us to the arrest of Peter when Herod began to vex the followers of the way and cast him into prison. No one following the way of Jesus celebrated Easter it was a pagan celebration. Which this verse when read in its full context shows both Easter and the passover were celebrated at the same time.
Acts 12:4 KJV: “And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.”
Christianity, as we know it, has evolved as a ‘composite religion’ quite unlike any other. If Jesus was its living catalyst, then Christianity should rightly be based on the teachings of Jesus himself-the moral and social codes of a fair-minded, tolerant ministry, with the people as its benefactors. However, it has been under constant attack by the world and the ruler of it.
It unfolds more and more how orthodox Christianity was not based on the teachings of Jesus: but instead based on the teachings of the Roman Church, which are entirely different. There are a number of reasons for this, the foremost of which is that Jesus was deliberately sidestepped in favour of the alternative teachings of Peter and Paul-teachings which were thoroughly denounced by the Nazarene Church of Jesus and his brother James.
Constantine declared that “he alone” was the true “Saviour Messiah”, not Jesus!
Only by removing Jesus from the frontline could the Popes and cardinals reign supreme. When formally instituting Christianity as the state religion of Rome, Constantine declared that “he alone” was the true “Saviour Messiah”, not Jesus! As for the Bishops of Rome (the Popes), they were granted an apostolic descent from St Peter-not a legitimate Desposynic descent from Jesus and his brothers, as was retained within the Nazarene Church.
WHY THEY HAD TO GET RID OF MARY AND THE BLOODLINE OF JESUS
The only way for the Roman High Church to restrain the heirs of Mary Magdalene was to discredit Mary herself and to deny her bridal relationship with Jesus. But what of Jesus’ brother James? He, too, had heirs, as did their other brothers, Simon, Joses and Jude. The Church could not escape the Gospels which state that Jesus was Mary’s “first-born son”, and so Mary’s own motherhood also had to be repressed. As a result, the Church portrayed her as Mother Mary a virgin,(i.e. not having any other children and blessed stories of her returning to heaven a virgin) and Mary Magdalene as a whore-neither of which any remote description was mentioned in any original Gospel or in any book of the Bible. Then later they went further to make sure this stuck so they said Mother Mary’s own mother, Anna, also gave birth to her daughter Mary by way of “Immaculate Conception”! So much for Mary’s siblings.
The original women of the Nazarene mission – Mary Magdalene, Martha, Mary Jacob-Cleophas and Helena-Salome
Over the course of time, these contrived doctrines have had widespread effect. But, in the early days, it took rather more to cement the ideas because the original women of the Nazarene mission had a significant following in the Celtic Church-women such as Mary Magdalene, Martha, Mary Jacob-Cleophas and Helena-Salome who had run schools and social missions throughout the Mediterranean world.
So, Fear Not –
THE CHURCH DECLARES ALL WOMEN HERETICS AND SORCERESSES!
These women had all been disciples of Jesus, and close friends of his mother, Mary, accompanying her to the Crucifixion, as confirmed in the Gospels. The Church’s only salvation was to deny women altogether; to deny them not only rights to ecclesiastical office, but to deny them rights to any status in society. Hence, the Church declared that women were all heretics and sorceresses!
In this, the bishops used the words of Peter and Paul, and on the basis of their teachings the Roman High Church was enabled to become wholly sexist. In his Epistle to Timothy, Paul wrote: “I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp any authority over the man, but to be in silence.” In the Gospel of Philip, Peter is even quoted as saying that “Women are not worthy of life”. The bishops even quoted the words of Genesis, wherein God spoke to Eve about Adam, saying “He shall rule over thee”. (These were indeed taken out of context. And the translators added to the problem when they took the New Testament from Aramaic into Greek, into Latin… at this point it was not yet in Shakespheare.) This is the same tricks being played today with the Darby Jesuit Dispensations. How’s your garments? Remember Jude said, 13 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
This all makes one wonder who said what… stick with what Jesus said!!! Not man. This is all designed to create confusion and God is not the author of confusion. We are the generation that is coming to the knowledge of the truth. And at times we will be troubled…but we will be victorious for the truth shall indeed set us free!
The Church Father Tertullian, c. 155 AD – c. 220 AD, definitely showed his dark side when he summed up the whole Roman attitude by writing about the female disciples of Mary Magdalene: “These heretical woman! How dare they! They are brazen enough to teach, to engage in argument, to baptize… It is not permitted for a woman to speak in church…nor to claim…a share in any masculine function-least of all in priestly office.” Then, to cap it all, came the Roman Church’s most amazing document, The Apostolic Order. This was compiled as an ‘imaginary’ conversation between the apostles after the Last Supper. Contrary to the Gospels, it supposed that Mary Magdalene had been present at the Supper, and it was agreed that the reason why Jesus had not passed any wine to Mary at the table was because he had seen her laughing! On the basis of this extraordinary, fictitious document, the bishops ruled that, even though Mary might have been a companion of Jesus, women were not to be afforded any place within the Church because they were not serious!
Which now make the words of Thomas more understandable when Jesus said:
“(22) Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to his disciples, “These infants being suckled are like those who enter the Kingdom.” They said to him, “Shall we then, as children, enter the Kingdom?” Jesus said to them, “When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; and when you fashion eyes in place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness; then will you enter the Kingdom.”
I now see the Lord’s real intention in saying that those who see the truth are chosen and blessed to have eyes to do so. And indeed these words are those of equality among all, both male and female to preach the word of God and equal in all things of God. Blessed are those who have eyes that see and ears that hear and a mouth that dares stand up against the lies that have been told by darkness? I see a people now that are finding truth and shedding the garments of lies?
Mary Magdalene had to be discredited and removed from the reckoning so that her heirs could be ignored.
This sexist attitude has persisted within the Church to the present day. Why? Because Mary Magdalene had to be discredited and removed from the reckoning so that her heirs could be ignored. But things are now changing, and, in the Anglican Church at least, women are being restored to the priestly station. Notwithstanding the avid sexist movement, the Messianic heirs retained their social positions outside the Roman Church establishment. They progressed their own Nazarene and Celtic Church movements and founded Desposynic kingdoms in Britain and Europe. They were a constant threat to the Roman High Church and to the figurehead monarchs and governments empowered by that Church. They were the very reason for the implementation of the brutal Inquisition because they upheld a moral and social code which was contrary to High Church requirement.
Again…this is a lot to digest…a lot to ponder. We will take a deep breath here… and discern…and cease not in seeking. For as Thomas wrote, Jesus said to cease not in seeking – and we shall find and be troubled….and wonder?
Thomas: (2) Jesus said, “Let him who seeks cease not to seek until he finds: when he finds he will be troubled; and when he is troubled he will wonder, and will rule over the all! Thomas O. Lambdin Translation.
There is much more to share, from the Holy Grail to Mary Magdalene’s arrival in France with the other Mary’s, Mary the mother of Jesus, and her sister, Mary Salome. And all of the great things Mary Magdalena did in France. But, this is all so much to comprehend all at once so we shall end here. Remember, those who see, shall see and those who have not eyes to see shall not see for it is written.
