BIBLICAL RESEARCH & ARCHEOLOGY

We recommend studying all of the material on the ASK site, first. Then, in one's quest to "grow in grace and knowledge", we recommend studying the material below. While we certainly don't endorse everything on each site, all of these sites offer something of value. This is an excellent opportunity to practice your skills at separating the wheat from the chaff.

The Seven Levels of Spiritual Understanding 

by Ken Nagele

Recently I came across an article by Steven Yates entitled Piercing the Veils. His article was in reference to a much older article by Don Harkins entitled Slavery and the Eight Veils. Both articles were unique in their attempt to explain people's apparent inability to grasp the reality that is staring them in the face in regard to what is generically known today as "the conspiracy." The two articles categorized people's beliefs into eight veils to be pierced. The concept was that most people simply cannot see past a certain level of veil put in front of them (and not that they don't want to see.) This "veil" concept is actually discussed in the Bible, as God Himself says that He is responsible for "blinding their eyes."

After digesting their information and concept, I decided that the same format could also be applied to the subject of spirituality. I have already refined their articles on the subject of the world, personal growth and health elsewhere on this website. Here, I am taking their concept and refining it, utilizing the concepts of established biblical numerology. While their articles claimed eight veils (or levels of understanding), I am going to suggest that there are in fact only seven levels of understanding. Since the number seven is the number of perfection or completion, all lower levels of understanding should emanate from that.

Rather than use Mr. Harkins' terminology of "veils," I prefer to use the term "levels of understanding."  Here is how I see The Seven Levels of Spiritual Understanding (again, borrowing some of Mr. Harkins' edited text):

First Level people may hear of various religions or of the concept of God. But, for whatever reason, they are not motivated to enquire any further about them. Their family background and/or society failed to instill any significant motivation for them to pursue the subject.

Second Level people are taught about religion by their churches and/or parents. They have a basic understanding of religious beliefs. They may have been raised in a particular religious setting; or they simply came to a religious awareness on their own. They may or may not adhere to religion seriously or consistently; and they may or may not even believe in God at all, despite their upbringing. These include Christian and non-Christian groups.

Third Level people consider themselves much more "enlightened". They take their (organized) religion very seriously (with regular or semi-regular religious practices) and obediently listen to their religious leaders instruction. Their preachers' word is as good as from God Himself. People at any other level, above or below, are looked upon as being misinformed or ignorant. Some may do good works, but rarely is unbiased religious or biblical study encouraged or permitted. These include Christian and non-Christian groups.

Forth Level people have discovered that organized religion is highly controlled and often not in accordance with biblical scripture. They gravitate towards "independent" churches, movements and home Bible study groups. These include Christian and non-Christian groups.

Fifth Level people have discovered that even fourth level activities do not provide the truly independent biblical understandings they so desire to attain. They gravitate towards Christian research groups that provide independent biblical research. Missing in this scattered group is any kind of local fellowship. And, the quest for advanced knowledge often leaves this group forgetting the basics of Christian charity.

Sixth Level people have mastered the research of the fifth level research groups and of hidden knowledge in general. They have also maintained their Christian charity. Most importantly, they have come to a proper understanding of their future -- and strive to live a life worthy of that award.

Seventh Level people do not exist yet, because none of us have yet attained perfection or completion. We will all, eventually, attain this level of understanding ... some sooner and some later. Those with the right attitude of learning and doing God's will are more likely to be called first. But all of us will eventually achieve this level of understanding, perfection and completion at some point after the second coming of Christ.

It should be noted that the various organized religions of the world are not necessarily of God. They are mostly the vehicles through which Satan deceives this world. But bare in mind that Satan provides these deceptions with God's express permission. God is the creator of all things ... both good and evil. While Satan is our real enemy, God is firmly in charge of all things. He is there to protect us if we trust in Him. And He will provide the proper spiritual guidance, if we will trust in Him with a proper attitude.

In the end, the subjects of the world, health, personal growth and spirituality all come together at the Seventh Level. Will you be on the Seventh Level to understand them -- and to meet God?

This section is for the benefit of those who may have formerly been a member of the Worldwide Church of God (WCG - now called Grace Communion International) - or who may still be a member. While we don't like to dwell on the past and certainly have nothing against the (former) WCG, for many people this experience was the prelude to their graduation to ASK. If nothing else, this section is a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Be sure to read the article, Who Is ELM?

Who Is ELM?

A Message for Members and Ex-members of WCG Splinter Groups

and Members and Ex-members of the Worldwide Church of God

 and Grace Communion International

It has been almost four decades since the late Dr. Ernest L. Martin resigned as one of the WCG's highest ranking and most respected ministers. Dr. Martin was one of the first to do the right thing and quietly resigned when it became obvious that change was not part of the WCG paradigm.

What has become increasingly obvious is the fact that most people associated with the above mentioned groups have little or no knowledge of Dr. Martin. If ever God was working with an individual in our time, it was Dr. Martin. No other ex-WCG minister has ever achieved the worldwide respect for his independent research that Dr. Martin was so famous for. 

It is time for all to turn off the 'ongoing ex-WCG soap operas' and find out what the Bible really says about all of the truly important doctrinal issues:

  1. There is no "true Church of God". In fact, the word "church" is not even mentioned in the original Bible translations.

  2. There was no hierarchy (or organization) in the early Christian ekklesia (a gathering of like minded people). 

  3. Yes, the Sabbath is on Saturday. And no, you are not required to keep it (or any of the Holy Days).

  4. The tithing issue was put to bed four decades ago - by Dr. Martin. Christian charity, however, is still waiting to be practiced by most.

  5. You have already been saved. Being a member of any of the above churches means nothing to God. You were saved before the foundation of the world.

  6. You do, however, have one very important decision to make in this life. And that is whether you desire to be in the Kingdom of God.

  7. Jesus was born on September 11, 3 B.C.E. All planetariums agree.

  8. The Temple Mount is located one third of a mile from the Wailing Wall. The Tomb of David is buried underneath.

  9. We are not in the end-times. We are not even close to the end-times. Maybe sometime around 2070?

  10. Your experience in the WCG was for a reason. Wise people will learn from it.

The work of Dr. Martin is well preserved and is still available to the world through the Associates for Scriptural Knowledge (ASK). The totality of his research is available on their website and is the equivalent of a college education. And it is all free!

You only have so many years in this life time. Why not take advantage of God's inspired knowledge before it is too late? Now is the time to wake up!

MILITARY

Most people think the draft is dead and that there is nothing to worry about. No politician would provoke the wrath of his constituents by voting for such a historically unpopular program. Yet, after 9/11, Congress approved the so-called Patriot Act without even reading the words to it, feeling that it was in the "national interest".

All that is needed to instigate a new draft is another major "terrorist attack", like 9/11. The ensuing outrage would provoke even the most strident opponent to volunteer their very own children to "protect the country". This time, there will be no escape clauses for those who object. Women will be drafted just like men. Millions of dollars have already been spent to prepare this new draft for a swift and easy implementation.

If you believe that you are a Conscientious Objector, now is the time to document this fact. Any implementation of the draft will most likely be done under "emergency" circumstances (like another 9/11 type of attack), leaving little time to file the proper papers and document your position. The links below will help you accomplish this important documentation.

  • Land mine: American IED.

  • Terrorist: someone who plants a bomb that doesn’t wear an Air Force uniform.

  • Enemies of the United States: countries that oppose U.S. hegemony.

  • Enemy combatant: someone turned over to U.S. troops in Afghanistan by someone eager to collect a bounty.

  • Axis of evil: countries with oppressive governments that our oppressive government doesn’t like.

  • Allies: countries with oppressive governments that our oppressive government likes.

  • Anti-Semite: someone who opposes U.S. military intervention in the Middle East.

MATTHEW 25

Probably one of the most misunderstood and ignored chapters in the Bible, the latter part of this scripture clearly addresses the question of "What should I be doing in my life as a Christian?" Taught directly by Jesus, this chapter covers a number of theological issues pertaining to the Kingdom of God. It then goes on to give us a direct, concise answer to what a Christian's life should include. There are four basic sections to this chapter, which Christ taught to His disciples, not to the masses (therefore it was not an allegory or parable).

Dr. Martin has written extensively on the first "Ten Virgins" section in Matthew 25:1-13, involving Jesus' return.

The next section is on the subject of 'talents' and 'positions' within the Kingdom of God and are described in Matthew 25:14-30.

The last section, Matthew 25:41-46, deals with Christ's judgments on nations - and their eventual correction.

But right before that, in Matthew 25:31–40, we find Christ's admonition for us (individually) today. From Dr. Martin's article on tithing:

In summing up this chapter on giving monies to Christ for the spreading of the Gospel to the world (that all of us should be active in doing), I wish to give a final method by which anyone can be assured that what money or contribution is given goes directly to Christ. This is a sure way that no one who loves the New Testament teaching can argue with. The teaching comes from Christ himself. Christ told people this certain way to give things directly to Him,

"When the son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory. And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats ... then shall the King say unto them on the right hand, Come, ye blessed of my father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked and ye clothed me: I was in prison and ye came unto me."

• Matthew 25:31–40

Christ went on to say that the righteous might be puzzled over this, because none of them ever gave Christ these things personally. But Christ went on to say: If you have "done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, YE HAVE DONE IT UNTO ME" (Matthew 25:40).

There we have it! This is the assured manner to give something to Christ. If you help out the unfortunate brother in Christ, you have given something directly to Christ. "Ye have done it unto me."

What is significant about Jesus' description is the fact that none of these categories are ones that the average person would normally come in contact with in his or her daily life. Since these people are out of sight, they are also out of mind. That is why Jesus is reminding us that there are people suffering, even though we don't see or think about them in our daily routine. But they are in need of our help just the same. And it obviously takes some time, effort and expense to find them and do what we can for them. But the rewards will bring us true happiness - and a fulfillment of Jesus' command. And, does Jesus' directive also factor into our acceptance into the Kingdom of God?

Most local communities have many worthwhile organizations that one could volunteer for. One could also help out on a one-to-one basis with those you might happen to come in contact with on a personal basis. It should involve a certain amount of your time and effort, not just writing a check to someone to get your obligation "out of the way".

It should be noted that most of us live in what is termed a "welfare state" and we often think that everyone is already being taken care of; even to the point of those of us who do work being resentful of those who don't. But the fact is that despite the enormous handouts our government provides (justified or not), there are still many people that fall through the cracks in many different areas of need. To say that one doesn't need to be involved with helping others in this day and age is a grave mistake.

Below are some links that we have come across that would appear to be worthwhile causes. Please let us know if you find any others that also might be appropriate. Here are some more "giving" scriptures; James 2:14-19 and 1 Timothy 6:18.

Don't Have the Time - Don't Have the Money?

Why not improve your lot in life - just to help others? It can be done. Just go to our Self-Improvement section and click on the appropriate links. What you earn in a year could be what you earn in a month. How far would that go to fulfilling Matthew 25:31–40?

Be A Light to the World

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 5:14-16
