If there is indeed a history unknown to most Christians, it is the anchoring of the history of Jesus in the current of the Essene tradition. Hidden, unknown or ignored truth, the fact remains that many Christians do not know the true history of Christianity. Yet this information is crucial to understand the quintessence of his universal message and to have a new perspective on the teachings of the one who is considered a pillar of this religion: Jesus of Nazareth.
The qualifier ̎ Nazareth̎ used in the New Testament reveals crucial information. Indeed, studies by historians and archaeologists show that the city of Nazareth could not exist, at least not as we know it today. Why then do the evangelists insist on Jesus’ belonging to Nazareth?
It was simply to indicate to those who can read between the lines that Jesus was a Nazarene.
Indeed, if Nazareth as a city did not exist at that time in history, the Nazarenes were indeed present at the time of Jesus. It was a very old fraternity from the schools of Egyptian, Chaldean, Atlantic and Atlantic mysteries and the secret teachings of Moses.
“Nazarenes”, whose etymology (Nazir-ha-Brit, a form pre-dating Nazrie-ha-Brit, commonly found) means “guardians of the Covenant”, those who protect the hidden and take care of the mystery of God in all things through the ages. Thus, when Nazareth is referred to in the New Testament, it is a matter of speaking of the community of men and women who were guardians of the divine covenant to which Jesus belonged, in which he had lived. The Nazarenes, “those who know the hidden”, is another name for the Essenes.
At the time of the Master Jesus, the Order of Essenes was in full expansion and people came from all over the world to be admitted to it. To do this, they had to spend a probation period of one to three years, then give up the world, give all their possessions to the community and live according to the prescriptions of the order. Then the candidate could gradually climb the ladder leading to enlightenment under the loving guidance of the hierophant and the great master.
In his book The Teaching of Jesus the Essene, Olivier Manitara, a contemporary spokesman for this tradition dating back to time immemorial, points out that there was also another higher and more secret way to enter this school through the gates of birth.
This was the inner circle of the Nazarenes, those who were consecrated to God before birth by the vow of their initiated parents, and who come to the earth to accomplish a divine mission. This was the case, for example, of Saint John the Baptist or even of Jesus himself.
The Essene filiation of Jesus
It is important to note here that at the time of Jesus, there were several branches of the Essene tradition. The one mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls was a branch already dead on the tree of the Essene tradition. By death, we translate the idea that it was no longer really linked to the original alliance. Indeed, this branch was closely linked to the Jewish religion. The Essenes of this current were very strict, dogmatic, ascetic. Women were banned from their communities and services. They practiced a very austere discipline. These beings were called Essenes, Nazarenes. Others were Zealots who were kinds of determined and armed political groups, ready to do anything to enforce the law of the God of the Jews.
In the Christian gospel, reference is made to the arrest of Jesus where, surrounded by Zealots, some of his disciples took up arms to defend Jesus.
Jesus said to them
“who strikes with the sword, will perish with the sword”
In this respect, he did not claim to be part of this branch of the Essenes that had become dead and rigid. Dating back to a time before the birth of Jesus, a split had occurred among the Essenes. A majority group remained faithful to teaching with a very dogmatic inclination to teaching. And another, less important in number, sought to realize the inner teaching and to live it in freedom and love (Conf. The book Mary, the Essene Virgin).
Thus, this group, of which the Blessed Virgin Mary was a part, remained faithful to the heritage of the prophet Elijah. As Olivier Manitara explains in his book “Joseph, the other Father of Jesus”, Elijah was a true Son of God in whom lived a secret mission that was known only to Essenes who remained faithful to the purity of their tradition. This mission was revealed to Moses through Enoch on Mount Sinai. Ultimately, this is the only mission of the Essenes throughout the ages: “to give birth to the great masters who alone can make the Light triumph and bring the blessing of the divine world on earth”.
Strengthened by this secret of which he was the sole heir, Elijah had temples built in Palestine, on the slopes of Mount Horeb and Mount Carmel. On these mountains, there were caves in which Elijah and other sages passed the highest initiations that once took place in the temples of Egypt. Thus, he was able to restore in these temples of Mount Carmel, the feminine initiation of the daughters of Isis so that a line of pure women could be formed in the learning of the virtues of the Mother such as gentleness, tenderness, kindness, purity, delicacy, taking care of the other. By Mother, we must understand here the complementary principle of the Father, the intelligence hidden behind all the manifestations of life. Through this work, Elijah consciously prepared the necessary conditions for the one who was to become the Messiah to benefit from a framework and environment conducive to the realization of his high mission. Thus, several centuries later, Elijah through St. John the Baptist announced the imminent arrival of the Messiah. It is also thanks to this work done centuries earlier that Mary, the mother of Jesus, could be raised and initiated in the secret of the temples of Mount Carmel to prepare herself to welcome the one who was announced as the reincarnation of the great Zoroaster.
Virgin not by sex but by her concentration, her openness, her recollection and by the culture of the inner space in her mind, Mary was able to create a link with her soul, in the image of the man who, with the help of a rocket, can reach another planet. This link with the soul allowed him to enter another world, to be in touch with it. From the fusion of these two worlds in purity was born a wisdom that did not come from the world of man, but it enlightened this world, gave it meaning, healed it. Thus Christ was born in her as he was born later, in an extraordinary way, in his son, the master Jesus.
Mary and Joseph loved each other deeply, with the most beautiful love that men can live in the world of man. The Virgin was born Essene, grew up in the Essene community and even played the role of dove of the temple. She was loved and recognized in this fellowship. A certain number had prophesied that she should give birth to a son of God, a great master.
Joseph was a scholar, a Kabbalist, a master of the Egyptian-Essetian Brotherhood, officiating in the temples of Heliopolis and not at all the rather simple carpenter who was introduced to us. He was a high priest of the Sun at Heliopolis, a great sage who knew all the teachings of Krishna, Zoroaster, the ancient prophets of Israel, and even the teachings of the Buddha. Thus, he was a guardian of true knowledge, the one who tells us that the physical body is a summary of the invisible structure of the universe and that it reveals all the secrets of God.
When Mary and Joseph conceived the master Jesus, they did so according to the concepts of Essene wisdom. Bringing a child into the world was not just an act, a child that was brought into oneself. It really consisted in calling a Son of God, a servant of Light, of Tradition. The child was then consecrated and offered to the Father and the Mother even before conception. Tradition teaches us that in order to prepare the conception of a child, the Essenes, who knew the path of life or the essential part of their child’s destiny, called first and foremost the Angel of Purity. Mary and Joseph performed this rite and, in this way, the Master Jesus incarnated through the Light that descended into the body through the ray of purity. Mary and Joseph had dedicated their lives to purity and wanted to bring forth the Light on earth through this virtue. It is for this reason that we have spoken of “immaculate conception”. The living memory of the Essene tradition teaches us that Mary, in particular, bore this first child with this idea of purity and clarity. When the child came into the world, it was really an offering to the divine world. Naturally, when Jesus was born, Mary and Joseph felt the amazement of the parents in front of their child. But above all, they saw in it the continuity of the work of the Essenes, the presence of Tradition, its incarnation and victory, as if this child were the result of a work of Light.
The Essene education of Jesus
The education of Master Jesus had begun long before his birth. Indeed, at the time when Mary was pregnant with him, she travelled, sleeping and living with simple people, farmers, fishermen, craftsmen. With her husband Joseph, they talked about God, the nameless, healed the sick and taught the art of the vine and other secrets of the earth, wherever they went. The Essene Virgin knew that by doing this, she was building her child’s body so that later on he would feel close to simple people and go to them, in love, simplicity, free exchange. She did not want her child to become a prisoner of dead dogmas that keep man away from the simplest and most beautiful realities of life. The Virgin wanted her child to free herself from everything that is frozen in life, but she wanted him to seek to live in freedom and love, the reality of God’s inner teaching. That is why she had insisted on being always in motion, travelling and reaching out to others in love, respect and divinity.
Mary The Essene Virgin of Olivier Manitara
In the book Marie La vierge essénienne, Olivier Manitara tells us about an unknown element of the birth of Jesus. Indeed, as she was about to give birth, as the child was about to leave, Mary heard the spiritual voice, the prophetic voice, the voice of God who traditionally speaks to the people of the Children of Light. She was surprised to hear that voice, she knew exactly what it meant. The voice told him that his son was dressed in a snow coat, that he had the hair of wisdom and that at the age of 7 he would leave his home to become the Word of God. Then, the Virgin, who was suffering from the contractions, thought that she would lose her son and that he would be called by the Angels.
She understood the message: her son was an Essenian and her life was dedicated to God. The snow cover was the white dress of the brothers and sisters of the Order. The hair of wisdom was the sign of the Essenes’ alliance.
The Essene Virgin consecrated her child to God at the very moment when he entered the world. In this way, it fulfils the ancient rite and secular vow of the Nazarites. Jesus was born as an Essene and the Virgin, from that moment on, deployed all her will so that he would receive the education and transmission of the spiritual laws promulgated by the fraternity.
Thus, at the age of 12, he was able to amaze all the priests of the Temple of Jerusalem. Nevertheless, she ensured that he was educated by a dissident and non-dogmatic branch of the fraternity. As a reminder, there were in fact two Essene communities: one external and official and the other more internal and discreet. “The same aspect can be found in Christianity: on the one hand, there is the Church of St. Peter, which is concerned with the exterior, very dogmatic, rigid, and on the other hand, the Church of St. John, which seeks in freedom and love to live from within the teaching of Christ” (Conf. Olivier Manitara, Mary the Essene Virgin).
This willingness of the Virgin to remove Jesus from the external community was very difficult to live with because this community wanted to recover the child for reasons that could be easily understood. Finally, through negotiations, the Virgin managed to keep the child with her and have him educated by the dissident group. She succeeded thanks to the help of the Angels who were at her side and who protected the master Jesus. The Essenes were sensitive to Angels and used to obey them.
It was the Essenes who taught the Master Jesus to eat, walk, speak, read, write, pray and unite with the nameless, with the Father and the Mother of the world.
The Virgin made sure that his education was intensive because she wanted him to be almost an adult at 7 years old before leaving with the Angels. But in fact, at the age of 7, he met his inner being, his divine source, the people of God, his Angel of Light who made him experience the divine world in its pure manifestation and reality.
During his childhood, Jesus had great difficulty following the teaching of the Essenes of his time, which he endured with great difficulty, because of the austerity of the discipline. The archives of our tradition explain that in a constant discipline, he was asked to learn the texts and rituals by heart. He knew he was being watched, which made him very unhappy. In his sensitivity, he liked to observe the outside world and would have preferred to play with the other children. Jesus was life. But what adults expected from him, including his father Joseph, had already died. When it is said in the Gospels that Jesus at the age of 12 found himself in the temple in Jerusalem, he had actually run away and this was not the first time. Causing amazement to all, he spoke of the mysteries of the divine world and, although he was only a child, life was already speaking within him. She was speaking to people who were only the guardians of a dead letter, of an extinct tradition. Only an Essene master such as Jesus could bring the divine spirit that vivifies the letter, the teaching, giving it a higher meaning.
The story goes that it was from that moment on that Joseph no longer disciplined his son. He even became his student without really showing it. Discreetly, he began to listen to him and follow him. Joseph later converted to Essenism and went to Egypt with the whole family to research the origins of this tradition. Thus, when we speak, in the Bible, of the episode of the flight to Egypt (which comes from egy: house and Ptah: God, the cosmos and which means the house of divine knowledge), it is a hidden language that tells us that Joseph, Mary and Jesus are an Essene family who take refuge in the wisdom of the envoys of the Light whose source is Egypt. In this country, the Essenes were not as they are depicted today. They were simply evolving in an alliance with different worlds. Like the Essenes of today, they worked in a tradition through teachings for the rebirth of Light on earth.
The teaching of Jesus the Essene
It must be understood that the life and teaching of Jesus comes from a sacred science and education that was already given to the Sons of God in the temple schools of Pharaonic Egypt and which originated in the mists of time. Initiation in the Egyptian sense means awakening one’s consciousness in the higher consciousness of God. It is a science and an art that allows us to elevate and melt personal consciousness into the highest consciousness. It is for this reason that the initiates were called the Sons of God, those who were born to divine consciousness.
Moses will be considered as an Elohim, a Son of God, a God in God. Jesus too will be considered as the son of man who became the Son of God.
“Be as candid as a dove and as cunning as a snake. »
By candor, innocence, purity, he referred to the soul.
By cunning or wisdom, he named the body. Jesus associated the soul with the bird and the body with the serpent, following in this the wisdom of the Essenes of ancient Egypt. The mastery of the serpent of which Jesus spoke is the mastery of life, which passes through knowledge and self-control (Gospel Archangel Raphael, 221, Verse).
It is worth noting that Jesus speaks of initiation into his Father’s kingdom in these terms: “No one can know the Father’s kingdom unless he is born a second time of water and fire. “He also says that “The son of man must become the Son of God. “He speaks of a higher consciousness that the uninitiated man does not know, as Olivier Manitara points out in his book, ̎, the secret book of Esséniens̎, It is surprising to note that Moses is saved from the waters: from a slave of the external light he becomes a priest through initiation to mysteries. Then, on the burning Sinai, he becomes hierophant and pharaoh. We find water and fire again. We find again the man who, slave of his senses, becomes a priest, Son of God.
Jesus will have the same experience when he is baptized in the Jordan River.
The spirit of God will descend on the waters in the form of a dove and a voice will say:
“This is my son, today I begat him. ”
Water and fire are still united and Jesus lives the same experience as Moses because it is the same science, the same tradition of Light.
Jesus was born of a virgin – an earthly self purified by science and Essene discipline – fertilized by the Holy Spirit – the higher and heavenly nature of man. He then becomes Christ, the Son of God manifesting in the flesh the word of God. Christ is the state of being of man who has succeeded in uniting himself with his divine nature and manifesting it. We have been robbed of Christ in the sense that a certain intelligence has done everything to make him inaccessible and abstract and unintelligible. Yet Christ has shown through his life and actions that he was present in the word of friendship, in fidelity, in the right act, in beautiful thought, in true justice… He is present when man is truly man in the light of love. It is a state of being that requires the mastery of evil spirits and forces.
“Where I’m going, you’re going; we’re one. What I do, you can do it too and more. You are Gods (Elohim). ”
A few lines on an article alone cannot summarize everything that the Master Jesus transmitted to humanity because such a teaching must be discovered from within. But if there is one element that sums up his teaching and that of the Essenes, it is the prayer he bequeathed to us as a heritage, as a gateway to the understanding of the body, the universe and the Gods: the Our Father. It is entirely based on the structure of Moses’ sixth commandment: “You shall honor your Father and your Mother. ”
The Father is placed above all, as the invisible source of all existence. It is the Father common to all beings who is invoked. The first idea is that of universal fraternity. Having the same Father, the universal spirit and the same Mother, the living nature, we are all brothers and sisters. The law of God, of Jesus, is based on love and brotherhood. Just like Moses’.
The Father in heaven, the Osiris who stands in the afterlife, manifests himself in three ways: the name, the kingdom, the will.
The sanctified name corresponds to the intelligence in man.
The kingdom of God is that of the heart and love.
The will of God corresponds to the will in man.
Jesus describes the heavenly man, the ideal man. His thought is sanctified in the Father’s intelligence. His heart is in harmony with God’s love and justice. His will is one with the will of the universe.
Then comes the description of the man born from the earth. This man thinks, feels and lives with the influences of the sick angels who carry evil. The daily bread corresponds to the thought and study of the sacred teaching, of eternal wisdom. “Man does not only feed on bread, but also on every word that comes out of God’s mouth. “The forgiveness of offenses corresponds to the sphere of feelings.
Temptation touches the sphere of will. The will must be sufficiently illuminated to resist the influences of illusion and lies.
The deliverance from evil refers to the presence of sick angels who have taken refuge in the earth. It is the I, the God of Moses, who delivers the soul from this influence. Jesus’ prayer is quite a teaching and it contains the schema of the esoteric constitution of man. It is man who is the ark of the covenant, who is the burning bush, the tree of life. He is the representative of God.
The living memory of the Essene tradition teaches us that the master Jesus was totally accessible, simple but nevertheless imposing, and that is what the crowd liked. When he was in town, people knew his habits, and waited for him in the places where he often taught in the form of parables, stories and discussions with those who asked him questions or tried to catch him in trouble. Everyone could come to his talks and everyone could speak. The master gave a veiled teaching there, he did not divulge all his thoughts. Those who were interested in this first approach could follow him and become one of his disciples. You could be such a disciple without abandoning your family, your work. The Master then gave other teachings that were deeper, more practical, more direct. He explained the meaning of the parables. In this inner circle, into which one entered through the baptism of John the Baptist, given by the 12 Apostles who were responsible for it, the Essene master transmitted a profound esoteric teaching as well as precise methods. He said that he was working on the future of humanity through his students thus prepared. The students had to do a lot of exercises and work on them, on their own subject according to the guidelines taught.
The continuity of Christ’s teaching
The question of the inheritance of the teaching of Master Jesus implies that of knowing what Christians and all beings who quote his name have done with his words. In the Essene Gospel, the Archangel Gabriel, gives us a clear and unequivocal answer to this question. We can read this:
“Jesus was a true man who was well educated. He spoke, taught and men gathered his words and deeds, but they interpreted them in a mortal way, as superstitious people who believe in miracles and who make a Son of God an extraordinary being with supernatural power. Thus, some men have fabricated a false concept that has imprisoned humanity in the false and diverted it from the right path and wise education. They have locked and bewitched Jesus in a false image to better enslave humanity” (Psalm 225:27)
Indeed, Christianity cannot be understood in a fair way without approaching it from the point of view of this inner Essene school. Churches have hidden the origin of Christianity in order to slowly kill the true teaching of Christ in order to obtain a greater power of domination over consciences. The existence of the apocryphal gospels shows that a part of the history of the first Christians is unknown. Authentic Christianity is the precious pearl of all religions and initiatory teachings. He is deeply individualistic but invites us to the community of love. He brings together in himself all the oppositions and reveals all the hidden influences that want to monopolize man. In its essence, Christianity can only shake up the world, and the churches established have done everything in their power to make the world accept it without being disturbed. The master Jesus was condemned to death because he affirmed, as St. John the Baptist did, that he belonged to the divine school of the Nazarenes and that he was transmitting to the crowd a teaching that had hitherto remained secret. The churches drowned Christianity under dead letter dogmas, transformed Jesus into an alien, he who called himself the son of man, and Christ into a metaphysical abstraction to which no one understands anything anymore.
Fortunately, the Essene school, Nazarene, did not stop at the death of the Master. Saint John, Mary Magdalene and the Virgin Mary, as best they could, passed on the legacy left by the Essene master. They knew how to take care of the ̎ brebis̎ which are in reality the words spoken by Christ.
Jesus said this very revealing word:
“I have not come to abolish the ancient prophets, but to fulfill them”
He thus speaks of a continuity, a work that does not stop with him. In the term of ancient prophets, it naturally included all the great sages and guides, it naturally included all the great sages and guides of other peoples who drew from the sole source of the divine school. It was itself the fruit of the work of these former prophets and their school. Today, Jesus therefore represents the old covenant because he transmitted this covenant with God to his beloved disciple, who became the master Saint John. It is the current of St. John that has been charged with keeping alive and transmitting this high knowledge of man in the “I Am the Light of the World”. Despite multiple persecutions, this current of Light has lasted for centuries until today and it is still it that, through the contemporary Essene Christian Church, restores and prepares the way, guiding man towards his full development, and remains faithful and pure before his master. Indeed, Saint John transmitted this alliance in secret, which then passed through the Grand Mani, then through Mohammed, Padmasambhava – the great Essene master who gave birth to the civilization of Tibet -, the Bogomils, the Cathars, the Templars. Again, during the Renaissance, the alliance was embodied in Germany through a man, Christian Rosycross, and then, after several centuries of sleep, it was resurrected through the great master Peter Deunov, who then transmitted it to his beloved disciple, Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov. Today, the covenant with God has progressed in its work of redemption. It has reached a higher degree of manifestation through the Essene Nation, restored by Olivier Manitara, as heir and legitimate successor to the great tradition of the masters. From this New Covenant is being born and appearing the new religion of God.
