What warnings does the apostle Paul give us?
Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.
Those who await the coming of Jesus of Nazareth for a distant future, are wrong. The Christ must come now, from within; the second coming of the Lords from within, from the depths of the same Consciousness. That is why what he said is written: «If you hear someone saying that Christ is in the public square, do not believe. And if they told you: he is there in the Temple, preaching, do not believe »... The Lord will not come this time from the outside, but from the inside; he will come from the very bottom of our hearts, if we prepare ourselves.
Paul clarifies it, saying: "From his virtue we all take grace for grace" (then, there is documentation). If one studies Paul of Tarsus carefully, we will see that he rarely alludes (he) to the historical Christ. Every time Paul of Tarsus speaks about Jesus Christ, he refers to the Inner Jesus Christ, the Intimate Jesus Christ, who must emerge from the bottom of our Spirit, of our Soul.
As long as a man has not incarnated it, he cannot be said to possess eternal life. Only he can bring our Soul out of "HADES", only he can truly give us life, and give it to us in abundance. Thus, we must be less dogmatic and learn to think the Intimate Christ (that's great) ...Samael Aun Weor. "Conf. The True Symbolism of Christmas”.
Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".
Let us remember that higher laws govern the life of the human being and these laws are summarized in love for humanity, that is why the love to which Paul refers says: “Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
Saint Paul warns us in Corinthians, 4.20: "because the kingdom of heaven does not consist of words (Intellectualisms, dialectics), but of virtue". (Purity in thoughts, words and deeds).
So, for the son of man to come, the earthly man must be created, which is the man of the higher dimensions when the higher bodies of the Being have been created through the magic of supra sexuality and later it will be created, as Paul says, the heavenly man "Just as we attract the image of the Earthly man, we must attract to ourselves the image of the Heavenly Man."
For this work, Pablo cites that the individual who is working to incarnate the intimate, must be: "solicitous, temperate, composed, host, apt to teach", “not litigious, oblivious to greed ”. "May he rule his house well, may he have his children in subjection in all honesty." (Because he who does not know how to govern his house, as he will take care of that of the Church of God) "Not a neophyte, because by blowing up he does not fall into the judgment of the devil." "It is also convenient for him to have a good testimony from strangers, so that he does not fall into shame and the devil's snare." "Deacons, they must be honest, not bilingual, not given to a lot of wine, not lovers of awkward earnings."
"May he hold the mystery of the faith with a pure conscience" "And these also be tried before; and so minister, if they were without crimes”. "Women likewise, honest, not detractors, temperate, faithful in everything." "Deacons are the husband of a wife, they rule well their children and her house." "For those who minister well gain good will and confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus." Thus, Saint Paul of Tarsus advises all good Christians to practice charity, to seek spiritual gifts, and above all to prophesy, that is, to visualize themselves in the future with the inner work of purification carried out.
