WHO IS A PROPHET & HOW SHOULD A PROPHET ACT?

1) A PROPHET can be either an incarnation of a typal being of any plane of the cosmic hierarchy or he could be a mystic who through yogic discipline has united in consciousness and energy with a typal being of any plane of the cosmos.

2) Either way, a prophet functions from a state of higher consciousness and has a concomitant higher force at his disposal to use as he pleases.

3) A prophet is a Knower and a Doer but should refrain from acting like an ordinary human being living in the unregenerate consciousness.

4) As such a prophet should abstain from the following - meddling with political affairs, tribalism, fanaticism, preaching against the natural laws that promote being and becoming, coercing people to follow him, using his Power to maim/kill his opponents and leading armies in war.

5) Instead, a prophet should work silently to regenerate the terrestrial force fields to the extent that he is capable of and should without saying a word or lifting a finger work for the benefit of humanity in this subtle manner - by infusing the gross force fields of the earth nature with elements of a higher Force of Consciousness that seek to obliterate or transform the perversions and horrors and sufferings that're associated with the deformed forces of consciousness that permeate the world. His very presence should have a global uplifting effect.

CAN RELIGION, SCRIPTURE OR PROPHET LEAD TO THE SUPREME TRUTH?

Religion, scripture and Prophet make tall claims that are simply what they are - tall claims and nothing more - and so they cannot lead to the Supreme Truth since they're evidently more a source of falsehood, fanaticism and suffering than anything else.

The wise person collects gems of wisdom from every source and after thoroughly reviewing them in an intellectual way to find out if they could have some positive effect in his life goes about practicing the same and gets direct evidence about the efficacy or inefficacy of the wisdom teachings.

When it comes to yoga, one should be very careful since it can turn life-threatening or lead to insanity or yo injury to the organs or to megalomania as it opens up the consciousness to various subtler forces of consciousness that one is unaccustomed to in the ordinary mode of life and besides it takes loads of patience and one must be prepared for immense suffering in the form of attacks from the adverse forces and illnesses or pains in the body in the beginning when the dormant higher forces take hold of the nervous system which takes time to get acclimatised to the new range of awakened forces in the being. If one does not have a competent guide who is himself a person of self-realization, it's better to stay away from yoga.

REASON OUT BEFORE ACCEPTING ANYTHING & THEN TEST ACCORDINGLY

In this age of information glut, the way to staying the course in a meaningful manner and of making inner as well as outer progress in life is to accept nothing at face value.

Question everything and only if a claim passes the test of reason should it be accepted as a plausibility.

By reason I do not mean the superficial logic of a scientist who sees everything exclusively in terms of crass materialism with his idea of reality of the crass materialistic kind being more a surface effect of deeper supramaterial causes than self-sufficient material causes by themselves.

By reason I mean a deep scrutiny of every claim by getting into the core of its meaning and seeing its interconnectedness with other well-tested phenomena to make an integrated whole and its value in terms of making life more meaningful.

If a claim can pass the test of reason as stated above then one may accept it as a plausibility while all the time being aware of the possibility of its deeper aspects (either positive or negative) that may have been missed in the initial round of perusal.

Above all, one should aim at practicality and not remain stuck on the level of shallow precept or of mere intellectual assent.

The subtler a claim is the more consciousness, including the yogic consciousness, would be required to inquire into its actual existence and benefit.

BEWARE OF FALSE TEACHERS LIKE KRISHNA & JESUS CLAIMING TO BE THE SUPREME BEING:

Beware of False Teachers whether Krishna, Jesus, Osho or anyone else who make the spurious claim of being the Supreme Being incarnated in a human body.

Everything in the cosmos is a manifestation of the Supreme Source and has at its core the Supreme Presence.

To recover one's supreme nature that lies at one;'s core, one cannot call the Supreme Nature down into the limited vehicles of one's mind, emotions and body but one has to rise in consciousness through all the intervening planes until one re-merges with the Supreme Consciousness and thereafter to act from that poise on the lower planes in an attempt to transform their inferior or unregenerate movements.

For the Supreme Source itself to incarnate on earth is an impossibility since its Supreme Presence, Supreme Knowledge and Supreme Power are so immense that gross matter, being just a feeble manifestation of it, would simply not be capable of accommodating its supreme immensity without being unbalanced or destroyed in the process.

A typal being from any of the lower cosmic planes can partially manifest itself on earth as prophet or as avatar but for the Supreme Source itself to manifest on the terrestrial plane appears impossible for the reasons mentioned above.

Besides, the Supreme Reality is more a featureless or attributeless field of potentiality in terms of consciousness and energy than a personality of any kind.

Scenario 1--
"HGTV has canceled a pilot hosted by twin brothers with a HISTORY of preaching against homosexuality, abortion and divorce following backlash from fans.

“HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers’ series,” the NETWORK wrote on its Facebook page Wednesday."

Note the word HISTORY and understand all its meanings.

https://tv.yahoo.com/news/hgtv-cancels-pilot -...

https://tv.yahoo.com/news/hgtv-cancels-pilot-...

Scenario 2---The fellas want Christianity to stay in Churches and "perhaps" in the homes. Looking at the PERHAPS it is interesting that many of these fellas belong to a religion that BRAINWASHES their children in their HOMES and elsewhere BUT they want to RESTRICT Christianity in a CHRISTIAN country.

Scenario 3--- Homosexuals must have full freedom to advertise and to promote their homosexuality to the ENTIRE world, in the minds of these fellas. Now compare that with their perverted position and HYPOCRITICAL position they hold on Christianity where it must be RESTRICTED to churches and PERHAPS to homes.

Scenario 4---"But when a sobbing Michael Sam celebrated his selection by the St. Louis Rams by hugging and kissing HIS partner, another MAN.......(HOMOSEXUALS)
For some, the reaction was joy. For others, there was DISMAY or even ANGER. For the NETWORKS that carried and REPEATEDLY AIRED the SCENE, it was BUSINESS as USUAL.

What, "REPEATEDLY AIRED the SCENE, it was BUSINESS as USUAL."

So then, showcase HOMOSEXUALS and acts of HOMOSEXUALITY as it is the good thing to do.

In my opinion, it mattered NOT to the relevant networks that many were DISMAYED and ANGERED they REPEATEDLY AIRED the SCENE and to them "it was BUSINESS as USUAL." Could such an approach be the result of the networks disregard for the OPINIONS of CHRISTIANS ? After all, in is very likely that the majority of the angered were Christians.

Compare the networks dismissal of the positions of the angered and dismayed with the non-dismissal of a network of the views of homosexuals-- see scenario 1. In both scenario 1 and scenario 4 the HOMOSEXUALS "rights" were esteemed above the view and RIGHTS of the majority of the population of the US.

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/no-hesitation-ne...

Epilogue --- Christians, do NOT support those networks that are HOSTILE to YOU because of YOUR RELIGIOUS beliefs.

Do NOT support any business that is hostile to your interest and which has either top management or major shareholders/owners who are HOSTILE to Christianity.

Support Christian businesses and all who are not hostile to you.

BRUTE:

When a child is born to a devilish woman of loose morals he usually turns out hardhearted, lacking in conscience, devoid of intelligence and brutish in behavior. Jesus is one such outstanding example.

THE VILEST PERSON - JESUS

I find Jesus' cursing and killing of an out-of-season fig tree the most vile act in religious traditions as it depicts the behavior of a raving lunatic filled with cruelty, tyranny, pettiness, illogic and megalomania.

Judaism, Christianity and Islam have for known reasons lowered the degree of consciousness, diluted the moral fiber of people and brought disrepute to the human race.

1. "Christians are the most persecuted group in the world, according to a 2014 Pew study."

WHAT? I thought that it was the ....ists, oh that is self-persecution.

2. " In 2013, a Vatican spokesman reported 100,000 Christians are murdered each year. Churches are regularly burned in Nigeria, Egypt, Syria, Pakistan, Indonesia, and Iraq. Christian pastors have been jailed and beheaded."
