Whoever blows [better said, the alchemist that blows] faith declares righteousness, but a witness of a false belief -- deceit. – Proverbs 12: 17



LOVE

Iod-Havah I love [Yesod] the habitat of thy house, which is the place where thy glory dwells. Psalm 26: 8



Knowledge

יהוה בחכמה יסד ארץ כונן שמים בתבונה
בדעתו תהומות נבקעו ושחקים ירעפו־טל

By Chokmah [wisdom] in Yesod [foundation-sex] Iod-Havah hath founded the earth; by Binah [understanding] he established the heavens. By his [Daath-Gnosis] knowledge the depths are divided [into Abba and Aima, Father-Mother, Adam and Eve], and the clouds distillate the [semen] dew [in Yesod-sex]. - Proverbs 3: 19, 20



Lack of knowledge

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge [Daath-Gnosis]: because thou hast [fornicated, thou hast] rejected knowledge [Daath-Gnosis], I will also reject thee, that thou shall be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law [Torah] of thy Goddess [the Schekinah], I will also forget thy children. Hosea 4: 6

Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book,
and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5

I'm guess that's a yes? True faith equals righteousness, but false belief deceit? So Faith in Knowledge is the most important thing to gnostics?

All are important on the path of self-realization. Yet in order to actualize these conscious principles, one must be initiated and trained in the science that leads to their harmonious development. This science is Gnosis, דעת Da'ath, translated as "knowledge" in the Old and New Testaments.

דעת Da'ath or Gnosis is the alchemical science practiced by the true initiates (μυστικός mystikos) who possess Πίστις pistis and ἀγάπη charity (otherwise known as גדולה love or חסד mercy in Hebrew). Real faith Πίστις (pistis) is direct experience of God, and has nothing to do with speculations, theories, or beliefs. Real intiates (μυστικός mystikos) acquire divine knowledge and develop Πίστις pistis and ἀγάπη charity (the intimate and divine qualities of God) through profound meditation and alchemy, since to realize these principles, one must close the eyes (μυω myein) to the external senses and awaken the soul through the divine power of love, thus unveiling any "mystery" and transforming one, by right, into a mystikos, "initiate."

This has nothing to do with speculations, theories and beliefs. Speculations, theories and beliefs are products of the mind. Πίστις Pistis results from awakening the soul. Πίστις Pistis is the cognizance of the soul before divinity, for God embodies the true universal power of ἀγάπη charity (גדולה love / חסד mercy) that one incarnates through alchemy, tantra or divine sexual knowledge.

http://www.passionistnuns.org/Saints/StPaulTarsus/StPaulTarsus2.jpg

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels (with profound eloquence, experience and knowledge of the scriptures), and have not ἀγάπη charity (חסד Chesed, Mercy, the Innermost within), I am become [as] sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal (who preaches empty doctrines without cognizance of objective truths).

And though I have [the gift of] prophecy (through awakened experiences in dream yoga), and understand all mysteries (esotericism), and all knowledge (from intellectual study); and though I have all Πίστις faith (Pistis, conscious direct experience of the divine), so that I could remove mountains (karmic obstacles), and have not ἀγάπη charity (חסד Chesed, the Innermost incarnated within), I am nothing.

And though I bestow all my goods to feed [the poor], and though I give my body to be burned, and have not ἀγάπη charity (חסד Chesed within me), it profiteth me nothing.

ἀγάπη Charity (חסד Chesed: Mercy, when incarnated within the soul) suffereth long, [and] is kind; ἀγάπη Charity (חסד Chesed) envieth not; ἀγάπη charity (חסד Chesed) vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the ἀληθείᾳ truth (the Cosmic Christ, represented in the supernal triangle of the Kabbalah);

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

ἀγάπη Charity (חסד Chesed, the Merciful) never faileth (since God is perfect): but whether [there be] prophecies (experiences within the internal planes or dream state), they shall fail; whether [there be] tongues (the unveiling of esoteric teachings in the scriptures), they shall cease; whether [there be] γνῶσις knowledge (Gnosis of the divine mysteries on earth), it shall vanish away.

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part (in accordance with the will of ἀγάπη Charity / חסד Chesed).

But when that which is perfect is come (the complete incarnation of ἀγάπη Charity / חסד Chesed, the Innermost Being within), then that which is in part (the terrestrial animal man or vain human personality) shall be done away.

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child (for when I lacked true spiritual knowledge from initiation, I was but a beginner who only read about the mystical path): but when I became a man (a Real Human Being made into the image of God through sexual alchemy, tantra, Gnosis, and initiation in the Major Mysteries), I put away childish things (I renounced my theories and vain beliefs in exchange for the development of Πίστις pistis and ἀγάπη charity / חסד Chesed in my soul).

For now we see through a glass, darkly (since we lack cognizance of spiritual teachings from our consciousness); but then face to face: now I know in part (in accordance with my level of development and spiritual discipline); but then shall I know even as also I am known (for by their fruits you shall know them).

- 1 Corinthians 13



To reiterate the instructions given by Lion of Judah, study the Tree of Life!

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"
