THE HOLIESTCommentaries on St. Matthew


Tablet Twenty-Nine

Chapter 19

"And it came to pass, that when Esa had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan;"

"And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there."

"The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?"

"And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female," (Matthew 19:1-4)

<1>"So God created man in his own image,...male and female created he them" (Gen. 1:27). As it is explained in The Holiest Book, this sentence means that God created man which was like God Himself, male and female (ichvs15c.gif (941 bytes)) at the same time. Man was in His image and likeness. <2>He created more than one of these, he created "them."

<3>Later on God separated male and female from this original being. So man is no longer in the image of God after this separation of male and female from the original. <4>When the male (Logic) and female (Grace) are manifested in a person, he will be an androgynous person. Two people with these qualities also will complement each other. Such a union brings perfection of energy between them.

"And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?" (Matthew 19:5)

<5>That is why, "For this cause," when soulmates find each other, they shall cleave to one another, "and they twain shall be one flesh." They should become one and help each other to reach higher consciousness and manifest God's qualities through themselves.

"Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." (Matthew 19:6)

<6>This is the Godly way of marriage, "What therefore God hath joined together." There will be no divorce in such a marriage. Otherwise, because of their false egos, the partners will not get along together, "let not man put asunder." <7>If they truly follow God's plan for marriage, they should not separate.

"They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?"

"He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so." (Matthew 19:7-8)

<8>Moses received this Law because the people's minds were so crude "because of the hardness of your hearts" that they could not recognize their true partners. <9>Also because of their lower natures, they desired the flesh of other women. So Moses relaxed the Law because the human was in a low level of consciousness. But truly fleshly desires and mental attractions are temporary and controllable. <10>The only true marriage between two people is the marriage of their spirits together so that they might become one.

"And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery." (Matthew 19:9)

<11>First find your true partner and marry her or him. But even if two beings are not each others' partners, with becoming one with God they will become one with each other and live together and be One. So "Whosoever shall put away his wife," with no great cause, "except it be for fornication" and marries another, creates a great sin "adultery" by doing so. <12>Beside spiritual reasons for marriage, the family is a block of society and each of them counts in the strength or weakness of the society. <13>A society with a weak family structure will be easily destroyed.

<14>Therefore if a man and woman break their relationship for selfish reasons and this becomes a norm in a society, then that society will become corrupt and no matter how powerful it looks, it is weak and vulnerable. <15>In the new era to come it is the strength of the Communities of Light which will create strength in the society!

"His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry."

"But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given."

"For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it." (Matthew 19:10-12)

<16>As it was said, each being has two parts (male and female) which when merged together become one or in the image of God. When they are together (ichvs15c.gif (941 bytes)) a person who is born in this state (androgynous) does not feel any need for a partner to be complete. Such people are those who, "which were so born from their mother's womb," or their partner has not been born in the flesh, so they cannot find it on earth.

<17>Another type of people who can stay unmarried are those who have been made impotent, especially in the past, by man, "and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men." They usually were used in king's or rich people's harems.

<18>The third kind which does not marry are those who avoid marriage (become renunciates or sannyasins) because they feel they have a greater mission to fulfill and dedicate their lives to God and His Work, "and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake." They sacrifice all for their ideology and higher self.

<19>But those who have found their partners and are inclined toward reunion and married life also are greatly blessed. <20>With a marriage centered on God's Laws, they become one and create a great block for society, a beautiful environment to raise children, and can manifest God's beauty and creative forces (regeneration) through themselves. They can help each other and others to reach higher consciousness. So they can reach Pure Consciousness even in the middle of the family.

"Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them."

"But Esa said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."

"And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence." (Matthew 19:13-15)

<21>Children are the symbol of the pure in heart, so he loved them, because it is the pure in heart who will see God.

"And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?"

"And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments." (Matthew 19:16-17)

<22>A person came and tried to inflate his ego by calling him, "Good Master." Esa detested this and reminded him that no man deserves to be called good and praised but the Father who is the only one worthy of praise. Then he told the man that he should follow the commandments strictly if he wants to enter into Pure Consciousness, "into life." Also God Is, "that is, God."

"He saith unto him, Which? Esa said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,"

"Honour thou father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." (Matthew 19:18-19)

<23>He asked Esa which Commandments he should follow. Esa repeated the ten commandments and told him to follow them. <24> This completely showed that Esa wanted his followers to follow these commandments and his coming did not destroy them.

"The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?"

"Esa said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me." (Matthew 19:20-21)

<25>The man said he had followed the Commandments and wanted to know what to do next. Esa said, "If it is true, then you are worthy to follow me. So go and sell all that you have and give it to the poor. Then come with me."

"But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions."

"Then said Esa unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven."

"And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (Matthew 19:22-24)

<26>Rich people become attached to their possessions. It becomes very hard for them to give them up for higher things. It is almost impossible for them to overcome their false egos which make them feel important because of their riches. <27>That is exactly what the false ego is, it is when a person sees his importance because of the things he possesses in the external world, not on his own true worth.

<28>Only when this false ego has been destroyed and the true ego (actualized ego) is replaced, can man appreciate what he is and enjoy life and the creation. Then he can enter the Kingdom Of Heaven. <29>This false ego usually is greater as the person becomes richer in material possessions. That is why it is so hard for the rich to enter the Kingdom Of Heaven. You cannot have two masters, God and mammon (Matthew 6:24).

"When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?"

"But Esa beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible." (Matthew 19:25-26)

<30>With the work of man alone to reach Pure Consciousness, it is impossible, "With men this is impossible." But with His Grace, it is possible.

"Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?"

"And Esa said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel."

"And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life." (Matthew 19:27-29)

<31>His disciples would be with him whenever he comes back to earth and eventually will reach Pure Consciousness, "inherit everlasting life."

"But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first." (Matthew 19:30)

<32>Those who create false egos, exalt themselves, and think they are first will be last. Those who humble themselves and may think they are last will be first.
