The Jesus you must know by Joseph Luxum
thought of others; never is. Such don’t reason for themselves or seek the good of othersalthough they claim to do it in the name of good. After being well indoctrinated they do it inthe name of their religion. This indoctrination can be seen as brainwashing, but actually it isthe spirit of religiousness itself that makes people commit inhuman deeds. Fleshly pleas-ures are on this side where the bodily senses cease to exist yet through the physically aliveperson the indoctrinator can filter these nonsensical notions as for example: cohabitationwith 70 virgins. How can anyone in heaven or Paradise have sexual cohabitation since bythen the blown into smithereens body is nonexistent and the life energy itself remains purelya spiritual essence? Can spiritual essence have sexual intercourse? But that’s what ruledthe ancient minds and it survived to this very day being well packaged in religion.Enough said about the blind indoctrination of religion(s), let us focus on something thatdoes not indoctrinate, but intelligently presents you with logic and deduction. It is not aquestion of acceptance or rejection, but rather reasoning and being involved, just as onewould savor a well-prepared meal.We know that we are composed of at least four areas of cognizance and reason, whichis our mind; having an emotion, which is our soul; having a physical feeling, which is ourbody, and also having premonitions or an extra-dimensional sense, which is our spirit. Weare also composed of at least nine components, which are:From the Hebrew word ‘Ratzon’, which means: crown, king, and also mind, we derivethe idea of being rational.Within our mind we find three components, in the Hebrew language called, ‘Hohmah’,‘Beenah’ and ‘Da’at’ - Wisdom, understanding and knowledge. These three should be ar-ranged in the following fashion: understanding acts as a sponge, which absorbs knowl-edge. The absorbed knowledge, if being of intelligent quality, can produce wisdom, whichis not just understanding or knowledge but rather their byproduct, fruit or an outcome.Such a person is then called wise if he or she practices the understood knowledge. So thatmakes it four. The fifth part of our being is ‘Nephesh’, soul. Within our soul we find tendencies, emo-tional attachments and even strongholds like addictions, which, when not dealt with willenslave the entire human being to its capricious demands. We are therefore souls due tothese two powerful components within our human structure. One component is animal likewhile the other divine, ‘Nephesh Bahamit’ (animal like soul) and ‘Nephesh Elokit’ (God likesoul). Those two components function in perfect balance when ‘Ratzon’, which is alsocalled the ruler, keeps them balanced. You have probably heard of the scripture Apostle Paul spoke in Ephesians 4:23,
be re- newed in the power (or spirit) of Ratzon (mind).
The Greek people most likely did not un-derstand it on account of their language, which uses PSYCHE denoting mind and soul asone. Again, due to this deficiency they needed much more time and effort to understandwhat Paul was really saying. But in order to understand something takes self-discipline,which is the first (ninth from bottom up) of the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit. It is the basicstep on the way to spiritual growth. When one only caters to the soul and does not disci-pline the mind the results can be catastrophic. If we only do what we feel, our souls will be-come dictatorial and despotic. A cow, for example, cannot choose to eat meat while hersoul longs for green grass and that’s all she eats. A lion kills for meat and does not feel likegrazing grass. That feeling comes from the cow’s soul and lion’s soul and each do exactlywhat their souls want. Can we say that a cow is enslaved to the desire to eat grass or a lionto eat flesh? No. That would not be correct since they are animals without ‘Ratzon’ andsince they do not reason or rationalize they use their brainpower instinctively. Unlike the
