Saint John (Explained)
"There was a man of the Pharisees, named
Nicodemus, a ruler of the
"The same came to
Esa by night, and said unto
him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from
God: for no man can do
these miracles that thou doest, except
God be with him." (John 3:1-2)
<1>Nicodemus came to talk to
Esa, not like an upright
man, but cowardly during the night. He wanted the respect and
support of the
and at the same time
Grace and truth. Respect from men and Grace from
God do not go together. <2>He also did not accept
as Christ but as "a
teacher come from
God." He was not pure
enough to see him as he was -- the
Christ. That is why
Esa answered him in the

consciousness) and comes to the

was telling Nicodemus that he just talks without having experienced
the truth, and he had not overcome the lower nature. Therefore,
whatever he said was invalid and from his lower self.
"Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born
when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb,
and be born?" (John 3:4)
majority of the people, Nicodemus took what
Esa said literally to mean
born again from the mother. He misunderstood completely what "to
born again" means.

repeated himself, that a man should be born from his lower
consciousness (animal consciousness), "water,"
or "spirit," which is

"That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and
that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." (John 3:6)
<8>A man who is born from the womb of his
mother (flesh) and stays in his lower nature (crudified
consciousness) is indeed flesh. <9>Because what is flesh? It
is crudified consciousness, and if the consciousness of man becomes
very crude indeed he has no consciousness but fleshly consciousness. So he is flesh.
<10>But the man who overcomes the flesh and
his lower spirit, will have spiritual consciousness, and is spirit. His Soul will be born from the bondage of his lower spirit
(turbulent water, lower
chakras) and will become a free Soul.
the First Begotten Son
of God had reached
Consciousness before creation (flesh).
"Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be
bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but
canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every
one that is born of the Spirit." (John 3:7-8)
saw that Nicodemus was ignorant of the realities of spiritual
understanding. So he described to him the difference between a true
spiritual person and a fleshly person.
<13>The spirit is completely detached from
this external universe, and it comes and goes like the wind. You can
hear it and feel it but do not know where it comes from and where it
goes. <14>In other words, a person of the spirit is detached
from all the bondage of the external world. Such a man has been
"born of the Spirit." He is in the

these things be?" (John 3:9)
<15>Still he did not understand.
answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of
Israel, and knowest not these things?" (John 3:10)
marvelled that Nicodemus, a master of the laws of
and spiritual leader, did not understand such a basic truth of
Esa realized that Nicodemus
is not in that state of consciousness to understand these things. That is why he continued.
"Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that
we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our
witness." (John 3:11)
said that whatever he told Nicodemus was true as "we speak that we
do know," or in other words, "because I have seen and experienced
the truth ('testify that we have seen'), it is true. But because you
have no knowledge of these truths and only follow the dead words of
your Scripture, so you do not understand them ('ye receive not our
"If I have told you earthly things, and ye
believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly
things?" (John 3:12)
<18>He said, "If I have told you about these
simple basic things, and you did not understand or believe them,
then how can I talk about things on a higher level ('heavenly
things'), so that you might understand and believe their truth?"
"And no man hath ascended up to
heaven, but he that came
heaven, even the Son of
man which is in
heaven." (John 3:13)
<19>No man reaches
Consciousness without first being lost in
Maya, "And no man hath ascended up to
heaven, but he that came down from

Eternal Divine Path, "even the Son of man which is in

so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting

world through him might be saved."
"He that believeth on him is not condemned: but
he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not
believed in the name of the only begotten
Son of God." (John
<21>Those who believe, follow his teachings
and path, and come out of their lower natures cannot be and are not
condemned. But those who stay in their lower natures, by the lower
nature, are already condemned. <22>They will not know his

those who are in their lower natures hate the

"For every one that doeth

light, lest his deeds
should be reproved."
"But he that doeth truth cometh to the
light, that his deeds may
be made manifest, that they are wrought in
God." (John 3:20-21)
<25>Only those who be(come)
Divine (go to their
higher selves) are saved, through Him (His Name).
"After these things came
and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with
them, and baptized."
"And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to
Salim, because there was much
water there: and they came, and were baptized."
"For John was not yet cast into prison."
"Then there arose a question between some of
John's disciples and the
"And they came unto John, and said unto him,
Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest
witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him."
"John answered and said, A man can receive
nothing, except it be given him from
heaven." (John 3:22-27)
heaven knows what is
good for humanity and uses our bodies to do His Tasks. That is why
"a man can receive nothing, except it be given him from
heaven." <27>So the power of
Christ was coming from
heaven. The power of
John was coming from
heaven also, so if
God does not want something
to happen, it will not happen and similarly, if He desires something
to happen, it will happen.
<28>That is why the human should use his
all the powers given to him to understand and do
God's Will, and then surrender the result (the outcome) to the
Lord and be content with whatever the result is.
"Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said,
I am not the
Christ, but that
I am sent before him."
"He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but
the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him,
rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy
therefore is fulfilled." (John 3:28-29)
<29>Again John indirectly proclaimed
Esa as the expected
Messiah and the
"He must increase, but I must decrease." (John
<30>John also said that his mission was
fulfilled. He found and witnessed the
Christ. So he must decrease, and
Esa must increase.

is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that
heaven is above all."

God, "cometh from above."

"And what he hath seen and heard, that he

"He that hath received his testimony hath set to
his seal that
God is true."
"For he whom
God hath sent speaketh the
words of God: for
God giveth not the Spirit
by measure unto him." (John 3:32-34)
<33>Most of the people, because they are in
their lower natures, will not receive him and his testimony. But
those who receive and understand him will believe in
God, because a person in
Begotten Son ("God hath
sent") speaks the truth because he is in truth. <34>He speaks
the "words of
God." He is in complete
tune with the Lord, so he uses the
Universal Mind and uses it abundantly "for
God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him."
Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand."
<35>As any father who loves his son will give
all things to him, so the
heaven also gives all
things to those who are in
Consciousness (His son) (Rev. 21:7). <36>So whatever
