The Original Teachings of Jesus Christ

God-the-Father

He alone exists He has existed since all eternity, and His existence will have no end.

He has no equal either in Heaven or on the Earth.

The Great Creator has not shared His power with any living being, He alone possesses omnipotence. (The Life of Saint Issa, 5:16-17)

The Eternal Lawgiver is one. There is no other god, but He. He has not shared the world with anyone, neither has He informed anyone of His intentions. (The Life of Saint Issa, 6:10)

The Lord our God is all-mighty, omniscient, and omnipresent. It is He Who possesses all wisdom and all light. It is to Him you must address yourselves to be consoled in your sorrows, helped in your works, and cured in your sickness. Whosoever shall have recourse to Him shall not be denied.

The secrets of nature are in the hands of God. For the world, before it appeared, existed in the depth of the Divine thought; it became material and visible by the will of the Supreme.

When you address yourselves to Him, become again as children. For you know neither the past, nor the present, nor the future; and God is the Master of all time. (The Life of Saint Issa, 11:12-15)

(He) is a Monocracy with nothing above It. He is God and Father of everything, the invisible One Who is above everything, Who is in pure light, Whom no eye* can see.

He is the invisible Spirit. It is not right to think of Him as you think of gods, or something similar. Everything exists in Him. He is illimitable, since there was nothing prior to Him to limit Him. He is immeasurable, since there was no one prior to Him to measure Him. He is eternal. He exists eternally. There is no way to tell His quantity He is not contained in time

He is life-giving Life. He is blessedness-giving blessed One. He is wisdom-giving Wisdom. He is salvation-giving and love-giving Love.

He is motionless, He resides in calm and silence. He directs His desires into His flow of Light. He is the Source of this flow of Light (The Apocryphon of John, 2:25-4:25)

He is the Original Spirit (The Apocryphon of John, 4:35; 5:10,15).

This is the message which we have heard from (Jesus), and declare unto you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5).

The blessed King, Who alone has immortality, dwelling in the Light (1 Tim 6:15-16).

Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen. (1 Tim 1:17)


The majority of these words of Jesus were not included in the New Testament by the Church leaders at the end of 4-th century after Jesus visit on the Earth. And this predestined the deflection of the majority of Christians from monotheism. They have almost forgotten God-the-Father, though He and the Path to Him were the essence of Jesus preachings. Thus, their ontological, epistemological, and methodological views became baseless.

Moreover, in Russia they developed an anthropomorphic* concept of God-the-Father, which is a typical feature of paganism. It is illustrated on the icon Trinity, where God-the-Father is depicted as an old man sitting on a cloud. And to the right of Him sits Jesus. This notion was even accepted as the Orthodox Creed: I believe (in) the Lord Jesus Christ, sitting to the right of the Father.

But God-the-Father is not a flying old man. He is the Primordial Consciousness, immeasurable in Its vastness, filling the whole universal space in His Abode, and not anthropomorphic at all. He really is infinite. How can one sit to the right of the Infinite?
