You Have Five Trees in Paradise (Thomas 19)

Yeshua says: Blest is he who was before he came into being. If you become disciples to me and heed my sayings, these stones shall be made to serve you. For you have five trees in Paradise, which in summer are unmoved and in winter their leaves do not fall—whoever shall know them shall not taste death.
Five Familiar Aspects of God
  1. FATHER — patriarch
  2. MOTHER — Holy Spirit*
  3. BROTHER — Christ, eldest son
  4. SISTER — spiritual soul*
  5. LITTLE CHILD — human being

Funny. Grownups do exactly the opposite! But it’s sad, too, because grownups who can’t make the little child won’t know how to enter the kingdom of God.

Nope. My Brother says that only a little child can see the kingdom.

My Perfect Brother

My perfect brother is totally awesome. He is Father’s firstborn son. My soul, who says she’s my sister, and my whole family is with me all of the time. I hear my big brother’s voice in lots of ways, but mostly in my right ear. Sister talks in my left ear. She’s being super quiet right now, because Brother is speaking to us.

My Perfect Brother - Jesus Christ

Jesus called the children to him and said: “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
