Like so many other sayings, could this one have a hidden meaning? Lets see.

    First, why would Jesus want them to ‘leave their nets.’

‘Leave’ comes from the word, ’believe’ and ’believe is, ’to accept something as true without absolute proof that it is true.’

Could Jesus have been trying to tell the fishermen that it was time to ‘leave,’ to leave what they had always ‘believed and accepted’ about what they had been taught about God?  Did Jesus want to teach them about his God, a God that they could ‘prove’?

 Maybe another reason was because Jesus understand the word ’net’ can mean, ’conditions and circumstances.’

Was Jesus trying to get the men to understand that their present ‘conditions ’ were only ‘agreements?’ Agreements, because that is what the meaning for ‘conditions’ is, ‘agreements.’

If so, an ‘agreement with what? Agreements with the handed down beliefs and opinions from the ancient fathers? Ancient fathers who believed in a god of war and destruction?

 Did Jesus also understand the word ’net’ can mean,  ‘circumstances?

Interesting to know that the word ‘circumstance’ has a meaning of, ‘to stand around.’ And isn’t that what you do when you fish the way you have been taught to fish? You ‘stand around, waiting’? Also interesting is that ‘stand’ can mean, an ‘opportunity.’

Was Jesus giving them an ‘opportunity’ to change their ‘conditions and circumstances’? An ‘opportunity’ to understand they did not   have to ‘agree’ with what they had been taught about God and man.

A God they had been taught was the real God, with  no proof that He was real? And that man is made of the flesh, when he is not.

Isn’t it most interesting to know different meanings for words? So think about this…Jesus wanted the fishermen to ‘follow’ him…not follow him around the countryside…but to ‘follow’…to listen to him and to accept him as their guide.

Did Jesus want the fishermen to stop agreeing with worldly conditions and worldly circumstances and worldly beliefs and handed down opinions of God and his Creation and to ‘follow’ which in this case means to ‘listen to him and he would guide and teach them truths of a real God. And by understanding the real God, it would change their human conditions and circumstances.

Another meaning for the word ‘net’ is ‘anything that serves to ensnare.’ Ensnare is to, ‘trap and take power over someone.’

Was Jesus telling them that if they left their old ways and old beliefs and followed him, he would show them  the truth of things and they could regain their power and be set free from their human conditions and circumstances.

Maybe, because

Could that be what Jesus was really saying to them? That they could take back their God given power of freedom?

And maybe Jesus wanted them to understand that there were different ways to fish.

Since a meaning for the word ‘fish’ is  ‘to search, to seek,’ did Jesus want to show them how, if they would leave their nets he would show them how to ‘search and seek’ and then to become fishermen of men?

 They must have believed in Jesus

Many Mansions

1qogQh1438270823

What do you think when you think of what this passage could mean. Could it mean Jesus was telling man that God lived in a mansion? A large house in the sky? And in Gods mansion there were lots of rooms?  So, could that passage have a different meaning? Lets see.

 Here are some meanings for the word ‘mansion. A ‘residence’ and a residence is a place to ‘reside’ in. Now the meaning for ‘reside’ is interesting as it means,

existing  in something as a permanent and inseparable element ’

What exist in man, that is

‘permanent and  is an inseparable element?

His Consciousness, because mans Consciousness  is

‘permanent and inseparable’ from him.

Then does that mean that what is ‘existing’ in us that we call God, is really our Consciousness and that is who and what is us and our reality?

Maybe because

We are are not our own and we can know nothing because

Man can know nothing without  his Consciousness.

And we are told

Again we are being told there is something IN us.

Could this one God, be our Consciousness?

Think, isn’t it Consciousness  that exist in us?

Is it also not true that there are ‘many mansions, many rooms, many areas within Consciousness? And is it not true that without Consciousness we have no body, no reality at all,  because it is only Consciousness that tells you anything, so without your Consciousness telling you have a body, or a world,  you do not have anything.

Was that what these Bible passages are trying to tell us? That we are not in or of our body, but that we, in reality exist in and as Consciousness? Could be, because

th

Again we are  told without God,  we can do nothing, just like   without Consciousness, we can do nothing.

Is this Bible passage saying

Consciousness is God?

What else could it mean? Certainly not that there is some God sitting in some mansion, some big house waiting for man to come to him.

How could man come to God, if he is already IN God?

Can man get out of God? Out of Consciousness?

Awake

And find that you and your reality do ‘exist  in something called

God

Spirit

Father

Consciousness

 And know they  are all are

ONE

And it is true

w

Yes, we do ‘exist’ in and of Consciousness,

also known as God and Spirit and Father.

So, how do you understand what many ‘mansions’ means?
