Jesus’ Gospel: Lection 70:11-14
JESUS PROPHESIED HIS DOCTRINE WOULD BE HIDDEN
Yet that Prophecy Isn’t In the Bible
Protecting One's Beliefs
I have received correspondence from many who emphatically state the Bible is true as written, and in turn they refuse to look at, let alone study, the historical evidence I can share with them, which proves the Bible has been severely tampered with, and some respond: lessons within their Bible tell them they shall not do as I have done. Logically speaking, that’s a terrific tool to prevent followers from learning doctrine that could be contradictory to that which the church wants them to know, and its likely been done to prevent followers from learning anything at all, that could possibly lead them, and their tithes / donations, elsewhere.
Jesus, His Apostles and Prophets
Jesus, His Apostles, and prophets before them, preached doctrine that was contrary to certain longstanding and revered Hebrew Laws, and Jesus made that fact very clear when He told the Jews in Lection 52:6, “The All Holy hath sent you many prophets, but ye rose against them that were contrary to your lusts, reviling some and slaying others,” and the fact Jesus preached against revered Hebrew Laws is the actual reason the Jews demanded the Romans to crucify Him.
Apostle Peter & Clement of Rome
Apostle Peter personally trained Clement of Rome, and appointed him to be a Church Father, and Clement wrote, “There is a certain great difference between truth and custom. For truth is found when it is honestly sought; but custom, whatsoever be the character of the custom received, whether true or false, is strengthen by itself without the exercise of judgment; and he who has received it is neither pleased with it as being true, nor grieved with it as false. For such an one has believed not by judgment, but by prejudice, resting his own hope on the opinion of those who have lived before him on a mere peradventure. And it is not easy to cast off the ancestral garment, though it be shown to himself to be wholly foolish and ridiculous.”
The Clementine Homilies
The paragraph you just read is contained in The Clementine Homilies, and it applies extremely well to those Christians who refuse to look beyond their Bible, and place blind faith in the honesty of the men who wrote it, not even questioning whether the authors had personally researched the text they put into print, or not. The Clementine Homilies can be downloaded as a PDF file, or as an E-Book, through this link: HOMILIES
Why I Do This Work
Before going on I must share with you an important bit of information, which has been a major motivational factor behind the biblical research I have conducted over the years: I had an ‘inherent inner knowing’ about certain lessons within the Bible, and there is big difference between an inherent inner knowing, and hearing a message within your mind; I knew within me, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that certain lessons in the Sunday readings of the Gospel, and in Sunday School, could not possibly be of God or Jesus. I was born with that ‘inherent inner knowing,’ or knowledge if you will, and I learned over the years that it had been a gift from God. I also learned over the years that I am among many who have been sent here, to share with the world, the negative modifications that have been made to God’s Word, and His Son’s Doctrine, and reveal the truth that has been hidden; I’ll share more about that in a moment.
Jesus Told His Twelve His Doctrine Would Be Changed
This section of Verse 11, “AS I SHALL BE NAILED TO THE CROSS, SO ALSO SHALL MY CHURCH IN THOSE DAYS, FOR SHE IS MY BRIDE AND ONE WITH ME,” makes it clear Jesus knew His Church, or in other words, His Doctrine, would be attacked, and changed by men, to suit their needs and traditions. Jesus also crystallized the fact His Father’s Word had been modified, when He stated in Lection 64:11, “Verily I say unto you, my twelve whom I have chosen, that which hath been taught by them of old time is true—though corrupted by the foolish imaginations of men.” “That which hath been taught by them of old time,” is the Gospel of Jesus’ time, and is known today as the Old Testament.
Jesus Told His Twelve His Truth Will Be Revealed
However, Jesus told us in this section of Verse 11, “BUT THE DAY SHALL COME WHEN THIS DARKNESS SHALL PASS AWAY, AND TRUE LIGHT SHALL SHINE.” I firmly believe the period of time in which “this darkness shall pass away, and true light shall shine,” is at hand, for as I already mentioned, there are many who, because of an ‘inherent inner knowing,’ searched beyond the Bible for truth, and after finding truths, and confirming for themselves what is truth, and what is not truth, have embarked upon sharing their knowledge with the world.
Early Church Fathers
The early Church Fathers wrote about a ‘lost Gospel,’ and among the many names it had been given, it was also known as the Gospel of the Nazarenes, and the early Church Fathers stated it was the basis for the Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. The Gospel of the Holy Twelve, written by Apostle John while incarcerated, which he ordered to be hidden to protect it from falsification, was discovered in 1870, and after my intense studies of it, and the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, I can state with absolute certainty, the Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke are based upon it, and it is my firm conviction, the same also applies to the Gospel According to John. It’s important to note that the doctrine Peter preached, which is recorded within The Clementine Homilies, and Jesus’ Doctrine within the Gospel of the Holy Twelve, recorded by Apostle John, mirror each other.

Jesus Prophesies A Pontiff Shall Reveal His Father's & His Truths
This section of Lection 70, Verse 12, “ONE SHALL SIT ON MY THRONE, WHO SHALL BE A MAN OF TRUTH AND GOODNESS AND POWER, AND HE SHALL BE FILLED WITH LOVE AND WISDOM BEYOND ALL OTHERS, AND THAT ONLY WHICH IS TRUE SHALL HE TEACH,” prophesies a man such as Apostle Peter, a dedicated preacher of truth, and whom Jesus appointed as the leader of the Apostles, will again sit upon the ‘Throne,’ and bring forth the hidden truth to all. Apostle Peter took great pains to do all he could to assure Jesus’ Doctrine would not be falsified by those who were under the influence of the “wicked one.”
Quote From Apostle Peter's Epistle to Apostle James
Below is a quote from Apostle Peter’s epistle within The Clementine Homilies, and it clearly expresses the deep concern he had regarding the falsification of Jesus’ Doctrine, and it also makes very clear why Apostle John would have ordered the Gospel of the Holy Twelve hidden, after he completed writing it.
Epistle of Peter to James: From Chapters I & II
1 I beg and beseech you not to communicate to any one of the Gentiles the books of my
2 preachings before trial; but if any one has been proved and found worthy, then to commit them
3 to him.
4 For, according to the rule delivered to them, they endeavour to correct the discordances of the
5 Scriptures, if any one, haply not knowing the traditions, is confounded at the various utterances
6 of the prophets.
7 Give the books of my preachings to our brethren, with the like mystery of initiation, that they
8 may indoctrinate those who wish to take part in teaching; for if it be not so done, our word of
9 truth will be rent into many opinions. And this I know, not as being a prophet, but as already
10 seeing the beginning of this very evil. For some from among the Gentiles have rejected my
11 legal preaching, attaching themselves to certain lawless and trifling preaching of the man who
12 is my enemy. And these things some have attempted while I am still alive, to transform my
13 words by certain various interpretations, in order to the dissolution of the law; as though I also
14 myself were of such a mind, but did not freely proclaim it, which God forbid! For such a
15 thing were to act in opposition to the law of God which was spoken by Moses, and was borne
16 witness to by our Lord in respect of its eternal continuance;
17 But these men, professing, I know not how, to know my mind, undertake to explain my
18 words, which they have heard of me, more intelligently than I who spoke them, telling their
19 catechumens that this is my meaning, which indeed I never thought of. But if , while I am still
20 alive, they dare thus to misrepresent me, how much more will those who shall come after me
21 dare to do so!
Lines 1 thru 3 make it clear Peter did not want James, who was Jesus’ Brother, and one of the Apostles, to give the books he wrote to any Gentiles.
Lines 4 thru 6 make it clear that the books Peter wrote were contrary to certain teachings within the Gospel of their time, which is now known as the Old Testament, and since they were contrary, he was concerned they would be changed back to the false teachings of men, to suit the needs and traditions of men.
Lines 9 thru 12 make it clear that Peter was very concerned the teachings contained in the books he had written, would be modified, for he had already seen that happen, and he made it clear that he had an enemy who was responsible for doing it.
Lines 19 thru 20 tell us, like Jesus, Peter knew people would come after he died, who would dare to make even greater changes to the books he wrote.
Roman Emperor Constantine, who convened and presided over the First Council of Nicaea, 325 AD, to determine authorized church doctrine, certainly made huge steps in fulfilling Peter’s concern about changing the lessons in the books he wrote, and those books contained Jesus’ Doctrine as He taught it to His Disciples. In depth information regarding Roman Emperor Constantine, and the First Council of Nicaea, is available through this link: CONSTANTINE & FIRST COUNCIL OF NICAEA.
In conclusion, I wholeheartedly encourage you to download the Gospel of the Holy Twelve and The Clementine Homilies, and continue your search for truth as it was handed down to mankind through Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and prophets.
