The eye is not only the way to see or understand, it has nothing to do only with the appreciation that people form of reality, there is something else, the eye carries a spiritual value that makes the body receive light or darkness, depending on the decisions-actions of the person as to what he sees.
The first treatise is not a writing parallel to the other Gospels, despite the parity of the accounts between them, because unlike the others it was not written in order to leave testimony of the acts of Jesus but to validate the truth of the things in which they were both taught, the writer and the recipient, by those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word.
So, there is a process of preparation for exposure to Revelation, but it is not man-made, on the contrary, it is a process developed by God to unveil how worthy a person is to contain His mysteries. Man can do nothing to ensure that God will entrust His Revelation to him. In this whole process we can prove the presence of the mystery of God's love.
God's judgments are not necessarily an eschatological subject; God's judgments have been present throughout the history of Adam's generation. Thus, we cannot speak of God's judgments believing that they are situations of future punishment, as if they were extraordinary events, for the Bible bears witness to the existence that every inhabited city, of all times, has received a visit from God in judgment about their actions.
The laying on of hands is the spiritual way to impart and transfer spiritual virtues. It is not a religious rite, or a symbolic form to indicate a divine operation; it is the means established by God to transfer upon the person the virtue invoked by the imposer of hands.
And this demonstrates that for the apostles and early believers, baptism was not simply a religious rite, or something similar, but part of the doctrine of the salvation of the Gospel of the Kingdom.
When a person is born again, of the Holy Spirit, and begins to walk according to the Will of God, God cleanses (sanctifies) the person from all the pagan customs he acquired in his past way of living, customs all generated in the image of the evil one. The process of purification (sanctification) consists in subjecting him or her to various trials (difficult experiences) so that those sinful burdens which will not allow him or her to grow in faith may come out of him or her.
Truth is not Truth by itself, it is necessary to establish it as such, it is not enough to nod to it, nor is nodding to it the way to establish it. A person may be before the Truth but if he does not establish it for himself, and in his environment, the person continues to live in the lie of ignorance of God.
Truth does not consist of knowledge. Truth is not a cumulus of knowledge, it does not depend on how much we know, even how much of the Bible we know. We can only know one point of the Scriptures, if we live by that one point of the Scriptures, that one point becomes Truth and by it others are affected, some for life, and others for condemnation.
A gate is the entrance to a stage of growth, it is the point of transition between two stages of revelation, and it is the requirement to qualify for other levels of authority.
