The (Not So) Hidden Truth About Jesus & Law Of Attraction

(Note: All biblical quotes are taken from the English Standard Version (ESV) because it’s a good balance of easy-to-read and accurate-translation-of-the-original-text. With that in mind, please stay focused on Jesus’s overall teachings and avoid semantic debates about the centuries of agenda-driven [translations & mistranslations](https://faithfoundedonfact.com/the-5-most-accurate-bible-translations/) of The Bible, thank you.)

My parents are devoutly Christian, and raised me to be the same. They taught me this deeply until I was a teenager, at which point I was encouraged to decide my religious beliefs for myself. So I attended a variety of churches. I also went to mosques and learned parts of the Quran from Islamic friends. I’ve also studied the wisdom of Maimonides, the Torah, and more with friends from Israel.

Despite my parents giving me the freedom to follow my heart & mind about spirituality, my Christian upbringing stayed with me late into my twenties. And even though I’m now a teacher of Law Of Attraction,I see myself more ‘spiritual’ rather than as a Christian…

I actually consider myself ‘more aligned with Jesus’ than most Christians.

Why?

Because even if someone believes Jesus is fictional rather than historical… he’s still an example of a master manifestor who used the law of attraction to create a giant legacy that lives on to this day, and I’d gladly use someone like that as a role model, goalpost, or someone to learn from.

So I’ve studied his way of being deeply, because it’s worth thinking deeply about people like that. Same goes for stories of any legendary ‘achiever’ from Michael Jordan to Superman.

And by studying him I learned something important… There’s a hidden truth about Jesus that almost no one talks about.

The truth is:

Jesus taught use of law of attraction to manifest a ‘heavenly’, divine life.

When I say stuff like this, it sometimes triggers people. And once triggered, they put up diamond-hard walls in their mind to make sure nothing changes their viewpoint. Then they bounce back to their comfy lives without digesting the truth of my perspective any further.

And you’re free to do the same, be as triggered as you like, but ask yourself… would Jesus –who hung out with thieves and prostitutes– run in fear when faced with a perspective different from his own? Would he make snap judgments without understanding the full reading? Would he keep himself in a cozy bubble with his disciples and no other views?

Or would Jesus kindly, lovingly, and open-mindedly hear what others have to say?

I bet you Jesus would not only read this… but agree with it enthusiastically.

Because what I’m writing here is 100% positive, uplifting, wise, well-reasoned, and aimed at elevating humanity and empowering them to do great works in their lives.

I bet Jesus would be like “J-Ryze! Dude! You’re the first person in centuries to truly understand what I was teaching!”

And it’s funny that I’m writing this because as a kid I was taught that other religions were ‘confused.’ I was taught that ‘spirituality’ wasn’t ‘true’ religion and astrology and such were ‘occult’ tools of the devil.

And now here I am claiming that Jesus taught the law of attraction and manifestation.

I consider myself doing this is actually following in the footsteps of possibly the greatest teacher of all time. He was the original ‘motivational speaker’, ‘guru’, or ‘influencer.’ Because Jesus was all about speaking as wisely and clearly as possible without fear or hindrance.

“Proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching… with all boldness and without hindrance.” — Acts 28:31

In this passage it’s Paul doing the proclaiming, but you can be sure he took his example from Jesus. Not only that, I’m claiming that Jesus’s guidance on the law of attraction was obvious from the many words we have recorded about his teachings in The Bible.

And I get that this may ruffle people’s feathers, it’s not my intention, but it’s often a side-effect of the truth. They say “the truth shall set you free… but first it will piss you off.”

So please do your best to be open-minded. Make a real effort to allow new ideas to receive ‘thinking time’ in your mind before snapping to judgment or jumping to conclusions.

I really hope that’s not too much to ask.

So…

Ready for the proof that Jesus was an epic LOA-teacher?

Let’s get into it.

The first thing that’s vital to grasp is that every word in The Bible isn’t literal. The bible is brimming full of metaphor. It’s overflowing with it.

If you don’t get that books use loads of metaphor, hyperbole, analogy, story, and other literary devices in order to get a message across, and have since ancient times… you might as well stop reading now.

If you don’t realize that The Bible’s made of 66+ books, many written by different authors in different styles, and that some of those ‘books’ are more literal, some less so… you might as well stop reading now.

But if you understand that there is metaphor, allegory, and deeper meaning littered throughout all books of The Bible, and that it takes a high level of discernment to know which is which, we may actually achieve some enlightenment together here.

And if you’re not sure whether a passage is literal, just know that since Jesus and his disciples loved using parables as teaching-tools, it’s safe to assume it’s a metaphor for something else, at least as a starting point.

So…

Ready for the proof that Jesus was an epic LOA-teacher? Let’s get into it.

The first thing that’s vital to grasp is that [every word in The Bible isn’t literal.](https://brewminate.com/why-the-bible-cannot-and-should-not-be-taken-literally/) The bible is overflowing with metaphor.

The Bible isn’t literal, it’s a giant metaphor for law of attraction.

And it being a metaphor makes total sense.

“To understand a proverb and a saying, the words of the wise and their riddles.” — Proverbs 2:22

Solomon knew it was important to understand Jesus’s metaphors.

The Bible uses the Hebrew word hidah a lot. This is usually translated as “riddle” or “dark saying.” I’d say it could also translate to “metaphor” because hidah refers to a “figure of speech” or other kind of indirect statement. More precisely, it means “communication that requires careful interpretation.”

The reason The Bible mentions hidah so often, is because Jesus was trying to emphasize that he speaks in parables and that people need to look way deeper than taking his words at face value most of the time.

This is the whole point of wisdom and understanding, and Jesus encouraged it.

Think about it.

Jesus’s focus was on teaching people to live an empowered life. He was teaching people how to maintain a ‘high vibe’ of love.

And what does any good teacher do if they want to teach people a certain concept?

They use metaphors.

For example, if I want to teach someone to understand volts, amps, watts and other electrical concepts, I might use the metaphor of kitchen plumbing and taps, because both are about the flow of current.

This is great for me as a teacher. It’s also great for any student who speaks the same language as me and is familiar with kitchen taps.

But it’s not great for someone unfamiliar with the concepts in my metaphor.

If someone from a primitive tribe in another country tried to translate my teachings, they could easily believe I was literally talking about the power of ‘metal kitchen taps,’ rather than electricity.

This is the downside of metaphor… it doesn’t translate well at all.

But Jesus knew that people understand things better through parable, analogy, metaphor, and story.

“And he told them many things in parables…” — Matthew 13:10

“And when he was alone, those around him with the twelve asked him about the parables.” — Mark 4:10

“I will open my mouth in parables;” — Matthew 13:35

So every time Jesus talks about “The Father” or “The Son,” he’s not talking about literal family bonds. It’s a metaphor for everything being connected & made of the same universal ‘matter’ and ‘energy.’

Father and Son was Jesus’s best metaphor to help people at the time understand the vast, divine power of the universe.

The Father is “source energy,” the great photon, nature, the universe, whatever higher power you believe in. Jesus knew that the name we call it doesn’t matter. He knew that every human had access to that energy to manifest their dreams, whether they were deaf, blind, and unable to read a single word of god, or whether they were the most devout minister.

“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” — Psalm 37:4

Psalms 37:4 - Bible And Law Of Attraction

The word “desire” is used throughout The Bible. It comes from the Latin “of the Father,” (‘de’ = ‘of’, ‘sire’ = ‘father’.) Meaning that it’s from source energy where our desires originate from. The idea here is that by focusing (appreciating) the power of source, whatever we desire or want, we will receive – whether in this life or the next. Back then, Jesus’s only way to explain that our desires originate from source in Aramaic (or Hebrew), was with a metaphor “of The Father.”

I know, Christians don’t call God source energy or call him universe or nature; however Christians do refer to “Higher Power,” or “the Holy Spirit.” These are all just ways of referring to the invisible ‘energy’ of the universe. Prophets have taught that we can only feel a presence (the Spirit) when we’re still of mind and focused positively. Law Of Attraction states we can only feel our connection to source energy when we’re still of mind and focused positively.

“The Son” isn’t specifically “Jesus the individual.”

He never meant he was the only one who’s special, or the only one able to channel divinity through themselves. In Jesus’s metaphor, we are all ‘The Sons’ of ‘The Father.’

Meaning we’re all the ‘offspring’ of the divine energy of the universe. We’re all souls who have manifested human bodies, and it’s our divine souls that pilot these bodies, adjust their focus, make choices with free will, and direct our thoughts. It’s our divine souls that tune into the feelings and emotions of our bodies, or choose to suppress them.

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” — Genesis 1:27

This is a line that people take literally often, but…

I repeat, The Bible isn’t very literal.

Ancient Hebrew is a language with few words, so many Hebrew words had multiple meanings. So in the above passage, ‘in his own Image’ —to Hebrews of the time— didn’t mean ‘looking visually similar to God.’

In the original Hebrew text, ‘created man in his own image’ meant ‘humans are extensions of source.’

The Bible simply uses Father, Son, and ‘in his own image’ as a metaphor for how our souls extend from source energy to become souls in human form.

It’s surreal to me that people take this passage literally. It’s coming from a constantly parable-using master-teacher, doing his best with a limited ancient language. Still, I’m in no position to criticize, because I took it literally as a teenager myself. Which reminds me of something else I took literally. The concepts of ‘good’ and ‘evil.’

I took it literally, as if the world is that black and white. As if Jesus wanted to divide society into ‘good people’ and ‘bad people.’ As if he encouraged divisiveness, polarization, or extremism.

What was I thinking? Lol.

“You will be like God, knowing good and evil.” — Genesis 3:4

Again, Jesus nearly always talks in parables and metaphor, there wasn’t an *actual* magic snake or something. (Note: If you still think this is literal, and not God/Jesus speaking in parable to the minds of the day, that’s fine, but this isn’t the article for you.)

The Bible is just teaching that you can know ‘hell on earth’ (bad) or ‘heaven on earth’ (good) depending on how you align your thoughts. He’s teaching that all of us, the moment our soul takes a physical body, now has ‘emotional guidance.’ We have ‘negative’ or ‘painful’ or ‘evil’ emotions, and we have ‘positive’ or ‘soothing’ or ‘good’ emotions, and it’s now up to us in our earthly life to navigate those emotions well.

We have ‘knowledge of good and evil’, not to make us judgy, but as an emotional compass inside us, moment to moment.

“For you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.” — Exodus 34:14

Here, talking to Moses, God doesn’t actually mean “I’m crazy jealous”, I mean come on…

God is divine love.

What the word of God means here is that if you’re more focused on specific manifestations than you are on the process of aligning with source… then god (source) won’t deliver results in your favor. The passage is saying that once you start over-focusing on manifestations (‘worshipping’ them), rather than being a loving, conscientious manifestor, it’s a slippery slope and a quick emotional downfall.

For even more understanding that “The Father” is actually infinite energy… Jesus tried to tell us that when he’s referring to God, he doesn’t actually mean a person, with person-like traits.

He never meant that God is a personified deity like Zeus or something. For Jesus, ‘God’ was his metaphor for ‘source energy’ or ‘light’.

God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?” — Numbers 23:19

And…

“This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” — I John 1:5

John tells Jesus’s message is to seek, embody, and be light. So we’re seeking to receive divine pure light. But how? Is it by literally sacrificing oxen and stuff?

Jesus said that connecting with the light of God is accomplished by seeking within ourselves.

Luke 17:21 - Bible And Law Of Attraction

“Behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” — Luke 17:21

And how do we tap into this kingdom of light?

The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness.” — Matthew 6:22

A ‘single eye’ has long been known in most religions as the third eye chakra. Scientifically it’s the pineal gland. Jesus was referring to a healthy ‘intuitive vision.’ Not literal. It was Jesus doing his best to explain the law of attraction to the people of the time, so that they could live fulfilling lives and manifest their dreams.

Buddha, Krishna, and so many great teachers have long taught seeking (and finding) the light within yourself. Jesus taught this too, but most people ignore it, gloss over it, or get into giant confused debates about it.

Anyway, if you get that almost anything confusing in The Bible is probably a metaphor, then we can move on to more clear signals that Jesus was obviously teaching the law of attraction.

Remember how I said ancient languages had strange quirks, nuances, and limitations that don’t always translate well into English? Well this is a big reason why the similarities between biblical teachings and LOA teachings are hard for people to spot.

Because the only people who’d be able to see such similarities properly would need to be a) talented manifestors, b) Bible-savvy, c) adept at translation, and d) fairly unbiased communicators. This is a pretty rare combination to find, and even if you did find someone with these traits… they’d then have to passionately translate all 31,102+ verses of The Bible from as old and as original texts as possible (The Dead Sea scrolls, etc.)

That said, I’ll do my best to point out some concepts Jesus referenced often and show how they’re just his way of teaching the law of attraction with the language he had available.

1. ‘Prayer’ was Jesus’s word for ‘meditate.’

Prayer is just an ancient-Hebrew-friendly synonym for the word ‘meditate.’

Jesus tells us to empty our mind of thoughts and concerns. (See Matthew 6:25)

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” — Philippians 4:6

Paul preaches Jesus’s wisdom, straight-up saying to ‘quiet your mind and meditate, yo.’

Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” — Matthew 6:33

Seek a higher (meditative) vibration and source energy first. Let go of worries, concerns, and thoughts in general.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you…. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” — John 14:27

Again, still your heart & mind.

Be still, and know that I am God.” — Psalm 46:10

A still mind is the way to know God (connect with source energy.)

“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you,” — Isaiah 26:3

Peace comes to those who meditate mentally on the infinite power of source energy. And the examples go on and on in verses like II Thessalonians 3:16, I Peter 5:6, Zephaniah 3:17, etc.

Meditation means to be still & observe thought, rather than engage with our thoughts or actively think.

Prayer is just meditation with a purpose or intention. Prayer is setting an intention, then quieting one’s mind in order to connect with the divine. Jesus encouraged people to pray well, because if you pray well, you’ll manifest well, and if you don’t, you won’t.

“And what I say to you I say to all: Stay awake.” — Mark 13:37

This is sometimes translated as “And what I say unto you, I say unto all: Watch!” Jesus isn’t suggesting we should all abandon sleep or take a shift on the wall.

He’s encouraging us to be present, aware, and be watchful shepherds over our internal landscape, watching the ‘sheep’ (thoughts), and being quick to see the child born of virgin consciousness (inspired thought, divine intuition), in the midst of the usual chaos of our minds.

When we observe ourselves objectively, without judgment, it changes brainwaves. It is an elevated state of consciousness available to all humans. It was available to Jesus, and it’s available to you. It triggers electric impulses in the neurons of your brain. It activates the pineal gland which is often dormant in most ‘asleep’ people. It changes the particles, electrons, and photons (light) in your brain.

Prayer (meditation) literally attunes you to the ‘light’ and the way begins to open.

The funny thing is Buddhists, LOA practitioners, and celebrities all practice meditation more than most Christians do. (And they all tend to get pretty epic results from it too.)

Because meditation —or prayer— works.

“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” — Matthew 21:22

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” — Mark 11:24

Jesus preaches over and over on the effectiveness of prayer as a tool for manifesting our dreams.

“And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.” — Matthew 6:7

Jesus also taught some guidelines about how to pray (meditate) effectively, for example, in the passage from the book of Matthew above.

He taught that prayer (meditation) is often best as a personal, solitary act, done in private, even in silence… just like meditation.

In this passage, we’re being taught that the law of attraction works on vibration, not words. It works on the vibration of your emotions and beliefs first primarily, and your words are factored in second, if at all. Meditating, praying, and attuning yourself to divine energy can be done with or without words, but if you’re babbling or overdoing it, chances are you’re not in the right vibration to manifest whatever you’re praying for.

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” — 1 Thessalonians 5:16

Instructions for successful prayer are the same as instructions for successful manifestation. Keep your mood uplifted & positive, be continual/consistent with it, and embody plenty of gratitude.

Even Jesus’s most famous ‘example prayer’ explains how manifestation works.

Check it out:

“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” — Matthew 6:10

Matthew 6:10 - Bible And Law Of Attraction

This ending line of the Lord’s Prayer is saying “As I envision things to be in heaven (imagination), also let it be so here on earth (physical reality.)” This relationship between what we imagine and what manifests in reality is touched on again in Matthew 16:19 as well.

Heaven is ‘above,’ it’s the realm of thought and consciousness. In Luke 22:10, Jesus said when you see the man with the pitcher of water follow him into the house and go to the upper room.

This isn’t referring to a literal upstairs floor in a house.

It wasn’t put in The Bible because Jesus felt people in bungalows suck and people in penthouses are awesome.

It’s there because the ‘upper room’ is a metaphor for the higher vibrations of your mind, reached through meditation, dance, or ‘being in the zone.’ It’s there because in ancient Greek times ‘water’ was a state of mind, as were the other elements, earth, fire, and air. He encourages us to go to a higher state, the ‘upper room’ of our minds.

Anyway, we already covered how God is a metaphor for source, so next we’ll see how ‘Heaven’ is one of Jesus’s best metaphorical teaching tools too.

2. Heaven was never a ‘place’ you go to.

‘Heaven,’ (just like ‘The Vortex’ in LOA) isn’t a place you go. Jesus meant that the Kingdom of ‘Heaven’ was something inside you. It’s inside your heart and mind, and you access it, internally, through the power of your thoughts and emotions.

“Behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” — Luke 17:21

Heaven is within you. The kingdom is within you. All abundance is within you. It is the infinite divine energy of the universe that manifests into your tangible reality. Jesus knew that true power and true abundance is inside you, always accessible.

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.” — Matthew 6:19

Can you think of any treasures that are indestructible? Really think about it. Food rots, metal rusts, even plastic eventually degrades. But the treasures of ‘heaven’ Jesus refers to, are treasures of the mind. A positive attitude, a developed mind and talents, a consistently high vibration.

Heaven is usually referred to as being ‘above’, because heaven is a metaphor for high vibration, elevated beliefs, and uplifted emotion. Tap into such a ‘kingdom’ and you’re guaranteed to manifest a reflection of that in your earthly experience.

In modern times, thoughts are generally seen as ‘above’, and are ‘pulled’ out of the air or our mind, and brought ‘down to earth.’ This isn’t random. Jesus saw things the same way. What Jesus called ‘Heaven’ is actually our ‘imagination.’

Every dream and desire begins in imagination. And Jesus knew that if we can imagine it we can manifest it. He knew that things are ‘done on earth’ as they’re ‘done in heaven’, because ‘heaven’ is the beliefs, visualizations, and imaginings. It’s the ideas and creations that blossom forth from our imaginations, to become ‘works’ in our physical reality.

Speaking of which…

3. ‘Works’ is just an old word for ‘manifestations.’

“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.” — John 14:12

People will create more impressive manifestations than Jesus did. Cellphones? Impressive AF manifestation that would’ve been considered miraculous. Airplanes? Same deal. Satellites? Literally mind-blowing for anyone from Jesus’s era.

How about this one?

“So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” — James 2:17

Belief without corresponding manifestations indicates that something is wrong, that it’s a ‘dead’ approach to desire-fulfillment.

Or this:

“He will render to each one according to his works.” — Romans 2:6

Paul is telling us that “source gives us exactly what we manifest, period.” Jesus taught him that by example, rarely getting upset about how his life went or what actually manifested, because he understood that he attracted it all either deliberately, accidentally, or by default.

“Yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith,” — Galatians 2:16

A person isn’t justified because he was able to manifest celebrity status, massive wealth, or even a sovereign knighting him.

Manifesting great stuff doesn’t magically make you a kind, loving person, and it doesn’t mean you can’t fall from grace the very next moment due to a lapse in faith.

Jesus wasn’t gonna sling the word ‘manifestation’ around back in the day, he spoke for the understanding of the masses, calling manifestations ‘works’ or ‘gifts.’ Basically they’re the ‘actions’, ‘results’, and ‘realities’ that come about due to a person’s belief and attitude, just like in the law of attraction.

“To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.” — 1 Corinthians 12:7

(“Everyone is manifesting their own unique life and gifts. Some do it better, some do it worse.”)

“Jesus answered them, ‘I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name bear witness about me.’” — John 10:25

(“I told you I’m connected to source, my manifestations prove it.”)

I could go on, but hopefully you’re able to see that Jesus understood the difference between manifestations (‘works’) and the roots of manifestation (‘beliefs.’)

Jesus taught the use of higher consciousness (heaven), often through prayer (meditation), to access a higher power (source) to do greater works (manifestations) than even he had done.

‘Works’ was just Jesus’s word for manifestations.

Those were some of the most common confusing metaphors but there’s another big one I have to discuss.

We can’t forget the metaphor of ‘judgment.’

Some form of the word ‘judgment’ shows up in The Bible over 500+ times, depending on translation.

And sure, ‘judgment’ is occasionally used literally, but it’s mostly a metaphor.

Think about it.

Can you picture Jesus –anytime he’s about to make a decision– cowering in fear of a ‘judgy’ God who may rain punishment down onto him at any moment?

Of course not.

There’s no mention of Jesus himself fearing ‘judgment’ from God, because Jesus knew that God is source energy, which does not judge. It’s simply a source for each individual soul to tap into and manifest whatever they imagine.

Judgment was Jesus’s metaphor for vibrational ‘matching.’

“A person may think their own ways are right, but the Lord weighs the heart.” – Proverbs 21:2

(“A person may think they’re saying and doing all the right things, but source delivers manifestations based on your overall vibration or energy.”)

Jesus taught that God (source) is an impartial, unconditional law or energy that doesn’t change its mind. It simply delivers manifestations to each of us, according to our overall vibration, frequency, or attitude, on any given topic.

If you have positive beliefs, positive moods, and minimal doubt or resistance about wealth, source will manifest wealth for you. If you have negative beliefs, negative moods, and lots of doubt or resistance about wealth, source will manifest poverty and financial struggle for you.

This phenomenon appeared to be ‘judgment’ to the people of Jesus’s time, so rather than use weird ‘science-y’ words like ‘alignment’, ‘harmony’, or ‘vibrational frequency’, Jesus used the metaphor of a judgy king, doling out ‘gifts’ (manifestations) differently to each citizen.

And Jesus even knew that holding a vibration of judgment inside you, would automatically manifest judgment aimed back at you in your own life.

Matthew 7:1 - Bible And Law Of Attraction

Judge not, that you be not judged.” — Matthew 7:1

So many Christians live in fear because they anthropomorphize God from an impartial eternal energy of the universe into a petulant, fickle, judgy God scouring your every behavior and declaring it ‘good’ or ‘bad.’

Jesus didn’t live in that fear though, because Jesus knew that “God’s judgment” was just a metaphor for manifestation-matching-vibration.

“But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.” – Matthew 12:36

Jesus knew this didn’t mean he had to watch every word he spoke so his speech was more perfect than the best scholar or poet. He knew it meant that whatever vibration a human emits will attract a matching manifestation.

If you get mad at someone who cut you off while driving, your vibration of annoyance will attract something else slightly annoying later that day. If you’re annoyed daily by people cutting you off, source may deliver an annoying ‘chronic’ illness that is with you each day as well.

“And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done.” – Revelation 20:12

There aren’t actual paper books in some otherworldly land, recording everything by divine scribes. It’s just the only thing the people of the time could understand. (Apologies to my Akashic records peeps. xD)

What it means is that your ‘vibe’ gets accounted for by source, then matched with manifestations– even after your soul passes from the earthly plane and reunites with source energy. Jesus wasn’t afraid of God’s judgment, because…

…Jesus knew every person’s own vibration was responsible for what manifests in their experience.

He knew that we each control our thoughts, moods, choices, and therefore, our vibration, so we have massive influence over our life path, and need fear no judgment from source.

Christians who don’t understand Jesus’s teachings live in fear of The Father’s judgment.

Christians who literally follow Jesus’s (fearless) example, have zero fear of The Father’s ‘judgment.’

And the law of attraction metaphors go on.

  • God = Source.
  • Vision = Visualization. Heaven = Imagination.
  • Kingdom = Abundance.
  • Good = High-Vibration.
  • Evil = Low-Vibration.
  • Acts/Deeds = Actions.
  • Works = Manifestations / Results.
  • Sin = Incorrect Manifestation.
  • Doubt = Resistance.
  • Body = Collective.
  • Be Saved = Manifest better.
  • Judgement = Vibrational Match.

If you substitute these concepts in many verses, then confusing parts of The Bible start to make a whole lot of sense.

Why?

Because Jesus was rarely literal.

So hopefully you’re getting a clearer picture of how one of history’s greatest teachers (and greatest manifestors) taught the law of attraction through metaphor.

We’ve discussed how prayer, heaven, works, and many other things didn’t mean what most people have translated them to mean.

And how they in fact refer to powerful, helpful law of attraction principles.

This is a great start, but I’d like to make a stronger case and show even more similarities between Jesus and modern-day LOA teachers. Basically, Jesus covered the same topics, with a similar frequency as current LOA teachers do.

Jesus taught ‘believing’ as much as modern-day LOA teachers.

Some version of the word ‘believe’ appears approximately ~250 times in the Bible.‘Believe’ (or ‘faith’) is a keyword and central theme in The Bible, just as it is in all the law of attraction teachings.

And there’s a good reason for this.

It’s because belief is a pillar of manifesting your dreams into reality.

It always has been. It was in Jesus’s time, and it is now. And Jesus knew that he had to teach people the importance of belief, or they’d live miserably, manifesting nothing to speak of.

The adage ‘if you can believe it, you can achieve it’ pops up in my feed all the time. And it’s a principle Jesus taught repeatedly.. If he were around today, his disciples would be making memes of it, and he’d be discussing it on YouTube.

“And Jesus said to him, ‘If you can?’ All things are possible for one who believes.” — Mark 9.23

When I teach people how to manifest things, I do my best to help them deal with resistance and doubt more than I help them with belief, because the world has had so many teachings about belief already, and most people’s biggest stumbling blocks are usually resistance, but belief still is incredibly vital.

Jesus understood both factors of manifestation, and did address ‘doubt’ (resistance), but it’s likely belief was much more of an issue than resistance was in his time, which is why his teachings emphasized it so much.

Proverbs 23:7 - Bible And Law Of Attraction

“As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” — Proverbs 23:7

There’s all kinds of other translations of this line, but like the rest of The Bible’s messaging, the point is clear (to me at least):

Solomon was teaching that whatever you believe deep in your heart is what manifests.

This is a basic principle of the law of attraction. The ideas and imaginings you hold close to your heart, full of joy about them, is what flows into your reality.
For example, if you believe in your heart that you’re undeserving or ‘not good enough,’ then your reality will keep serving you up experiences that reflect that. But the second you realize the truth that you are worthy and deserving, and replace negative beliefs with positive ones, reality will serve you up things to affirm that instead.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” — Hebrews 11:1

Jesus knew that faith is what creates our reality. He knew that the way life works isn’t “I’ll believe it when I see it,” … but instead the way life works is “I’ll believe it, then I’ll see it.”

The Law of Attraction doesn’t say ‘we always get what we want,’ it says ‘we get what we believe.’

  • Jesus believed he could walk on water, feed multitudes with five loaves, and resurrect from the dead, and was seen as delusional by the people of his time.
  • Roger Bannister believed he could break the 4-minute mile, and was seen as delusional by the doctors of his day.
  • The Wright brothers believed they could fly, and were seen as delusional by scientists of their day.

Like everyone, these people believed first, (even in the face of their haters,) then manifested second.

Law of Attraction teachers believe in manifestation with the same depth that Christians believe in miracles. It’s the same principle, just two different languages, two different teachers, two different eras.

Jesus also taught ‘trusting the universe’ as much as LOA teachers.

This gets a bit tricky because The New Testament was largely written in Koine Greek, where the word ‘pistis’ means ‘believe,’ and it also means ‘faith,’ and it also means ‘trust.’

So we could say that just as above, the word trust is used about ~250 times as well. Perhaps more accurately the King James Version of The Bible mentions some form of the word ‘trust’ about ~191 times.

Point is, Jesus talked about ‘trusting god’ about as much as LOA teachers talk about ‘trusting the universe.’

Trust in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” — Psalm 37:4

This might as well say trust in source and your desires will manifest.

“Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.” — Proverbs 16:20

Whoever thinks about Jesus’s teachings will manifest good, blessed is he who trusts in source.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.” — Proverbs 3:5

This might as well say trust in source and ignore your ‘logic’ of how you think your dreams ‘should’ manifest.

Remember, it doesn’t matter what word you call ‘God’, even a primitive tribe with no word for God can manifest a wonderful life, and Jesus knew that. He knew any human who trusted their ability to elevate their beliefs, to be a light in the world, to align with divine energy would be rewarded with fulfilling manifestations.

I really hope you’re seeing the parallels. I really hope it’s becoming obvious to you that Jesus was teaching people how to live a great life on earth, by leveraging the powers of their hearts and minds to manifest a fulfilling ‘heaven on earth’ for ourselves.

Regardless, let’s look at more similarities between Jesus and LOA teachers.

Jesus taught gratitude as much as LOA teachers.

Gratitude in Hebrew is ‘ydh’ and in Greek is ‘eucharisteo’ (roughly) Some form of the word ‘thank’ comes up about ~71 times in The New Testament, but the actual number of times the idea of gratitude comes up in The Bible altogether is probably quadruple that.

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” — I Thessalonians 5:18

This means to give thanks even for terrible tragedies. Wife left? Give thanks. Lost job? Give thanks. Caused a species to go extinct? Give thanks.

This seems extreme, but Jesus knew that the world (nature / the universe) is operating properly, and that joy and pain, light and dark, are necessary contrasts that are ultimately blessings allowing us to experience life and find our own divinity.

“Be care-ful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” — Philippians 4:6

To manifest your desires, pray (meditate) with gratitude.

“Giving thanks always and for everything…” — Ephesians 5:20

Here Paul echoes Jesus’s teachings, emphasizing being grateful for everything.

You’re getting it, right?

Jesus taught gratitude as a tool for navigating life just as passionately —if not more so— than any LOA teacher you can name.

Plus, Jesus talked about ‘visualization’ as much as LOA teachers.

They didn’t have the word ‘visualization’ back then, so instead they used the word ‘vision.’

Vision is mentioned ~130 times or so in The Bible.

Write the vision… For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.” — Habakkuk 2:3

Habakkuk recounts teachings from the Lord. Namely, that what we visualize will manifest. Writing down a vision for your life and expecting it to come to pass, –aka “creative visualization,” in LOA terms– is found in The Bible many times. Plus there’s also science that backs up visualization, and it’s especially clear in athletics.

“Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law.” — Proverbs 29:18

Prophetic vision (visualization) is good, so do it.

When Joseph had a vision that he’d rule over his brothers, he was seen as crazy and deluded, but he kept believing in his vision, and it eventually manifested.

Jesus was basically teaching peeps to visualize their sh*t, because if you do, you’re gonna get it.

Speaking of ‘getting stuff…’

…Jesus taught abundance as much as LOA Teachers.

Proverbs 2:22 tells us that God (source) is responsible for manifesting richness or poverty, and Jesus did his best to teach followers that they too can manifest either wealth or poverty for themselves.

“The Lord will open to you his good treasury, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hands. And you shall lend to many nations…” — Deuteronomy 28:12

In fact, The Lord encouraged him to envision good people being on the ‘lending’ side of things (ie: they were wealth-holders, not desperate debtors.) Jesus encouraged people to manifest their own income streams, and to do it well.

“Let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.” — Ephesians 4:28

“So that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one.” — 1 Thessalonians 4:12

Jesus and his disciples (Paul in this case) encouraged people to make a good living and be so well-off as to have plenty to spare when others in need came into their experience.

Deuteronomy 8:18 - Bible And Law Of Attraction

“You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth…” — Deuteronomy 8:18

And verses like…

“God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy.” — I Timothy 6:17

Show that Jesus clearly knew wealth came from source, manifested in many forms, and he had no problem tapping into it.

Do you think Jesus supported a huge staff of brilliant minds, marketed and ministered to thousands, and left a giant legacy… without money? Do you think he did his good works without wealth? Do you think he was a poor, destitute beggar people walked by and ignored?

No?

Then *follow in Jesus’s footsteps* and manifest abundance. Wise people get them racks, yo. (See Proverbs 21:20)

Jesus taught the ‘law’ as often as LOA teachers too.

Often ‘law’ is mentioned because Jesus wanted to address the countless rules of men, other times it’s because he wanted to teach about the Universal Law.

I won’t get too deep into this, but The Bible mentions some form of the word ‘law’ more than 500 times, just like any book on law of attraction would reference ‘law’ extremely often.

Why? Because The Bible and LOA Books are both about the same thing… manifesting a fulfilling life by leveraging the law (of attraction) in our favor.

And you know what else LOA books use a lot? Affirmations.

And yes, Jesus used affirmations incessantly.

The Bible is full of Jesus proclaiming “I am” this and “I am” that.

I am the truth. I am the gate. I am the light. I am the way. I am the door. I am the vine. I am life.

I am, I am, I am.

Jesus used the (massively powerful) phrase “I am” often, because he knew it was a manifestation tool.

“Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.‘” — John 8:58

Another view is that when he said “I am” he was using it as another name for God (‘source.’) For example:

I am the vine; you are the branches.” — John 15:5

Jesus likely didn’t mean that he was personally the one and only vine responsible for all the fruit in the lives of all 8 billion people living on earth today. He just meant ‘I am’ in the sense that The Great “I Am”, God (source), was the vine, and by us tapping into it properly we can manifest wonderful fruits.

And remember, Jesus taught us over and over to follow his example. As in, we ‘should’ all be using “I am.”

He also taught that…

…God is impartial & unconditional, like the law of gravity.

Many Christians see “The Father” as some judgmental deity, looking down and judging everything that happens.

But “The Father” is just a metaphor for source energy. And Jesus knew that source energy doesn’t judge. He knew that it’s impartial, unconditional, and constantly in application to everyone. He knew that anyone could use it to manifest anything they want, without condition, without the label of ‘good’ or ‘evil.’

“By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith.” — Romans 3:27

Every. Single. Human can use the tool of faith or belief. It is the only law that matters for creating a fulfilling life. It is impartial, unconditional, and accessible by everyone at every moment. Jesus knew and taught this.

He was indeed teaching that anyone can manifest at any time, with zero condition, restriction, or judgment put upon them beyond the simple nuances of law of attraction.

This unconditionality is seen often in verses such as John 15:7, John 5:14, and Mark 11:24, and one of the clearest call-outs about this is:

God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?” — Numbers 23:19

The Bible explains here that God (source) is an impartial, always-applied law that doesn’t ‘change its mind’ or respond differently to different people. God is a universal energy, utterly reliable and consistent, because it’s not a ‘person’ with a ‘changeable’ mind, it’s a universal law.

Like gravity, the law of attraction applies equally to everyone, at all times. It doesn’t lie, misguide, misdirect, misrepresent, or change its mind.

Jesus tried so hard to teach us all that if you use LOA well, you’ll get fulfilling results, and if you use it poorly, you’ll get bullsh*t.

But huge amounts of Christians busy themselves arguing over trans, gays, marriage, and more instead of practicing manifesting goodness themselves and those around them.

Jesus taught proper application of the law of attraction, period.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” — Matthew 7:21

(“Only those who connect to source manifest ‘heaven.’”)

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” — Romans 12:2

(“Be unconcerned with current reality, and instead use your mind to manifest better results. Test it and see how well and what good you can manifest.”, in fact I encourage you to test everything I’ve said here for yourself.)

Jesus knew that over-concern with unpleasant situations limit you from achieving your true potential. He points out that the way to attract a new reality, aligned with your truest desires, is to transform your thinking. He encourages us always to elevate our mentality and attitude to the highest vibration possible, one of love.

Luke 6:38 - Bible And Law Of Attraction

“Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure… running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” — Luke 6:38

This verse is a clear message that you attract what you feel. The vibrational frequency you give out is the frequency you attract. When you feel abundance, you attract abundance. When you feel positive, you attract positivity.

“Look not to the things that are seen, but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” — 2 Corinthians 4:18

Paul explains that what’s in our imagination is the eternal, indestructible reality that has yet to manifest. And to manifest it, you need to ‘see’ it, or ‘visualize’ it. Don’t focus on the undesired current situation, instead focus your attention on the reality you actually desire.

Source is an energy that acts as master architect, designer, or creator responsible for all reality. It’s the infinite energy responsible for creating every bit of matter in the universe. You can look into quantum physics for more on this, and Jesus surely had some understanding of it, since he refers to god as infinite light (photons), and seemed to easily ‘jump’ quantum realities in order to create ‘miracles.’

The point I’m making with all this is Jesus’s teachings are so similar to LOA, it’s hard to believe they’re not just LOA from a different time, in a different language. It’s crazy how often Jesus taught us to adopt the high-vibration of love. It’s shocking how consistently he hammered home the path to manifesting well:

Elevating our beliefs, uplifting our moods, stilling our minds in meditative prayer, and soothing any doubts or resistance… all because that’s the only path to connect with source.

And he didn’t do this by binging YouTube videos, or even reading articles like this one.

Jesus knew the only way anyone can manifest miracles is to follow our internal guidance.

Jesus didn’t follow a ‘Bible’, a book, or a religion.

He followed his own personal connection with God.

And remember, he encouraged us all to follow him in this and do the same. Jesus never envisioned a world where everyone’s arguing over Bible verses. He envisioned a world where people truly understood their connection to the divine, and truly understood how to access their own personal kingdom, their own personal dreams and desires, their own personal heaven on earth.

He didn’t invent the name ‘Christians’ or ‘Christianity.’ Jesus avoided labelling people. He didn’t believe in ‘religion.’ Jesus believed in source energy. He didn’t insist people use crosses as symbols. Jesus was a ‘heathen,’ a ‘pagan,’ and he did not follow religion. Instead a bunch of fans and supplicants created their own religion around him after he was gone.

Jesus simply followed his internal emotional compass. He followed the light which was within him, the ‘lightest’ emotions he could access, moment-to-moment. It’s this light that he said we also could find within us, because we’re human just like him, with our own emotional guidance.

Jesus was never teaching that all 8 billion people on earth today need him, him specifically, and him only. Jesus was confident, not despotic.

But what about…

“Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.” — John 14:6

Isn’t Jesus saying that “he” is the be all and end all for success in life?

C’mon.

Jesus didn’t mean that every human from now until the end of time –including primitive, illiterate, uncivilized tribes had to ‘find Jesus’ in order to live great, fulfilling lives and tap into heaven (on earth.)

He just meant that they had to find the ‘Christ’ within themselves.

It was a metaphor meaning that the only path to source was Christ-consciousness and uplifted vibration.

Jesus didn’t mean that people had to repeat his metaphors and take them literally.

He just meant they had to internalize the concepts he taught and remember their true power as manifestors to create a heavenly life here on earth.

Jesus meant that he was a ‘top-tier role model’, showing us the way to connect to source, and that although there’s as many paths up the mountain as there are humans on earth…

…the ‘only way’ to manifest well is to elevate our beliefs, tune to our emotional guidance, and soothe all resistance and doubt.

He meant that his teachings were correct. That the overall concepts (NOT the literal minutiae) were the only way that law of attraction works, and just like the law of gravity, there’s no way around them.

He meant that there was no other way to manifest our dreams properly, because desire, resistance, and belief are the rock-solid criteria for leveraging the law of attraction.

“I am the way” is Jesus’s catchy, attention-grabbing method of getting people to follow his example, but surprise-surprise, the uh… well-intentioned Christians scattered all throughout history took it *literally*, insisting every human being simply MUST ‘find Jesus’ if they want to live well.

Can you get more elitist, exclusionary, and divisive?

Can you picture Jesus turning up his nose at primitive tribes who can’t read ‘the good book’? Or him scrambling to convert them to start tithing their funds to a ‘church?’ Or trying to subvert whatever their hearts lead them towards?

All Jesus wanted was for people to experiment with things for themselves.

He just wanted them to do the work and manifest a better earth.

“A man had two sons. And he went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work in the vineyard today.’ And he answered, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he changed his mind and went. And he went to the other son and said the same. And he answered, ‘I go, sir,’ but did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said, ‘The first.’ Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, I say to you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes go into the kingdom of God before you.’” — Matthew 21:28

Jesus was passionate about humanity loving one another in healthy ways and he just wants people to practice connecting to a vibration of love, to source. Literally practice it often. He doesn’t want them debating all day long about who’s more righteous, or who has the correct interpretation of some book.

He didn’t want people speaking hollow words, or calling him ‘Lord’, he just wanted them to apply the teachings.

“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?” — Luke 6:46

He just wants us to practice LOA properly and actually manifest some good works in this world instead of grinding away miserably at some 9-to-5, blaming everything on others, or getting stuck in abusive relationships or whatever.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” — Matthew 7:21

(“Calling me nice names like ‘Lord’ is meaningless, only taking action to still your mind and elevate your heart and connect to source will work for you.”)

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” — Matthew 7:24

(“Seriously guys, listen deeply, interpret well, and apply my teachings and you’ll manifest your dreams on a solid LOA foundation.”) Jesus was about actually manifesting positive works for the world, not all the empty chatter.

Jesus was all about motherf**king practice.

(He also didn’t care if someone swore. He gave props to foul-mouthed harlots, thieves, and roman soldiers.)

Jesus wanted people to practice what he practiced. To follow in his footsteps. To see for themselves the ‘miracle’ of properly applying LOA.

“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.” — James 1:22

James 1:22 - Bible And Law Of Attraction

James knew that Jesus disdained empty words. He knew Jesus disdained hypocrisy. He knew Jesus had no time for pedants, and instead insisted that people seek their own, soulful, connection with source over any ‘letter’ or man-made law, always.

Seek first the Kingdom of God.” — Matthew 6:33

Very specific. Don’t go looking for a church , or a Bible, or a Bible-teacher.

And how do we seek the kingdom of god (connection with source)?

“The Kingdom of God is within you.” — Luke 17:21

It’s your thoughts, moods, and choices. You have about 55,000+ of them a day, and most people are NOT seeking them, tuning into them, paying attention to them.

This is not something that religion is comfortable with. Most Christian institutions don’t want you to seek a personal connection with God, because they make money by being the middle-man. They have relevance and significance by being the middle-man. They can maintain a position of power, authority, and superiority if you have to come to them, rather than simply do the work of elevating your own thoughts and emotions (a powerful ability you’ve been blessed with since birth.)

Jesus said seek the kingdom of God within first.

Seek it within you.

In your heart and mind. Society has trained us to be distracted. This is why most people can’t manifest, because facing their true thoughts and feelings is too dark and scary. It’s too unfamiliar. It takes actual effort to apply ourselves, look within, and admit truths about ourselves.

But Jesus did it constantly. He was always seeking “The Father” (source) within, first and foremost, and he wants you to align with source energy too.

Whew!

At this point we’ve looked at tremendous similarities between today’s law of attraction teachings, and the teachings of Jesus. Some of the most common words, themes, and concepts taught in The Bible are directly parallel to similar things in LOA.

But the biggest sign that Jesus was teaching the law of attraction, for me at least, was the fact that…

Jesus constantly told us that we’re divine, all-powerful extensions of God (source.)

There’s countless verses about this, for example:

“I can do nothing on my own.” — John 5:30

Jesus knew that he (like all humans) was powerless when disconnected from source. He knew that lower-vibing materially-focused minds accomplish practically nothing without connection to source’s divine inspiration first.

Jesus knew he was human, but he also knew that (like all humans,) he had a divine soul or consciousness that he (like all humans,) uses to pilot his body. So although low-vibration human endeavor accomplishes ‘nothing’, tapping into source is a different story entirely.

“I and The Father are one.” — John 10:30

“I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father.” — John 16:28

(I –like all humans– am a soul that came from source and entered a human body, now I am leaving my human body to re-merge with source, because while bodies tend to perish, souls are eternal.)

Over and over Jesus said that he wasn’t a paltry, powerless creature. Over and over he said he was connected to divine power.

And he said the same of us.

Sure, he says “I” in the above quotes, and some Christians think this meant he was proclaiming that he-and-only-he, was ‘special’, and that he was the divine one, not us dirty sinners.

But Jesus did his best to correct this misunderstanding too:

“Whoever believes in me will do the works I have done, and they will do even greater things than these.” — John 14:12

John 13:12 - Bible And Law Of Attraction

(“Whoever follows Jesus’s teachings and example can and will manifest greater than Jesus.”)

As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you… If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.” — John 20:21

(“As source has empowered me, you are also empowered, just like all human beings who align with source.”) The message here? You have equal power to Jesus.

Jesus was constantly explaining that he was just like us, and that none was ‘better’ than another, and that anyone could turn their life around (‘be saved’) at any moment because we’re all connected to divine energy.

He knew what it was like to be human, just like all of us.

“But now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God.” – John 8:40

Jesus explained that he wasn’t always perfectly genius, and had years where he had to f**k up, learn, and grow, just like all of us.

“And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.” — Luke 2:52

(“Jesus grew beyond his earlier ways and gained more fame.”)

“By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God…” — 1 John 4:2

(“You know someone’s got things right when they admit Jesus was fully human.”)

“Since it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy.’ ” — 1 Peter 1:16

We’re all divine human beings. Period.

Jesus preached love, the highest vibration.

In the law of attraction, love is the highest, purest vibration of source. Just like everything else about this stuff, it’s called by many names: joy, bliss, union, harmony, clarity, freedom, abundance, expansion, etc.

Call it what you want, the vibration of love is all of those wrapped up into one. It’s the purest vibration us individual “souls in a human body” can access, and whenever we do choose to tap into love, we start channeling ‘miraculous’ things into our lives, just as Jesus did. And he knew this, and did his best to teach us that love is the highest vibration we can achieve in our earthly bodies in order to manifest our desires.

Then why is there so much talk of ‘sin,’ and ‘evil,’ in the Bible?

Because…

Jesus understood contrast.

Negativity, darkness, pain, suffering, death. Jesus understood it all, and did his best to teach people their relationship to the law of attraction.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” — Matthew 5:3

(“People who’ve spiraled to great depths are the ones who rise to great heights. The lowest lows create the highest highs.”)

Matthew 5:3 - Bible And Law Of Attraction

Jesus knew contrast, like metaphor, was a powerful teaching tool.

“And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell…” — Mark 9:47

It’s a metaphor. It means do whatever you have to do to elevate your beliefs/moods and to align with source, because that’s the only way to manifest your dreams.

If friends and family are bringing you down, move away, or spend more time in coffeeshops, etc., do whatever you have to do to get your vibe right.

Jesus ain’t saying literally “hey, go cut your eye out” to align with source. He’s saying that if it comes down to it, and you simply can’t see a path to healing, then sure, remove what’s in your way if that gets your heart & mind right.

But he also believes that’s not really necessary and that source can cure leprosy, or eye-pain, or anything else.

And Jesus tried to make this all simple.

He boiled all his teachings down to maintain a vibration of love, free of judgment or fear:

“‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ And he said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.’ ” — Matthew 22:36-40

Basically, always vibe high in love, aligning with source energy, and secondly, all humans are equally part of source energy, so love them too.

Jesus wanted the process of manifesting a fulfilling life to be easy.

Is love as simple as I feel in my bones, in my heart, or will people still be unable to grasp that Jesus taught high-vibing love, and used it to manifest well?

I guess we’ll see.

And I’m psyched for the ‘contradictory’ Bible verses peeps will use to ‘debunk’ my points.

When I see them pop up in the comments, I probably won’t be impressed.

Jesus himself often had trouble getting the truth through to scholars, zealots, intellectuals, and people in authority.

“Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering.” — Luke 11:52

(‘Lawyers’ here refers to scholars, public figures, zealots, etc.)

Jesus is basically saying the religious scholars and magistrates of the day weren’t seeking a high-vibration themselves, and were more focused on convincing others away from learning to manifest their dreams.

Jesus encountered haters often because…

…in a land of liars one who tells the truth is a scapegoat at best and a victim at worst.

And that’s fine. My own family might love this piece, or they might hate me for writing it. They might applaud my insightful take on a master manifestor from humanity’s history, or they might decry me as a blasphemous, devil-worshipping revisionist, blaspheming who’s twisting the word of god.

I don’t care, because Jesus wouldn’t care.

Jesus knew the masses in his time were deaf and blind to the truth, but he gave it to them anyway.

He knew that understanding manifestation was the only path for people to achieve their dreams, and has been since the beginning.

He preached his truth and wisdom as much as possible, but had zero patience for wisdom-avoiders.

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you…” — Hosea 4:6

If Jesus were here now, writing a similar article, doing his best to communicate how to truly uplift your beliefs, soothe your resistances, and manifest your dreams…

…He would speak wisdom, value, light, and truth with passion. He’d do his best to uplift others, even in the face of their hate, ignorance, and righteous indignation.

So I welcome any ‘Christian’ haters-in-disguise.

“But now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God.” — John 8:40

It’s fine if haters seek to ‘kill’ me, a man telling you inspired truths that I heard from source. It’s fine if you feel judging and labeling me is the right thing to do.

The fact is, it doesn’t take wisdom to write someone off or label them. Anyone can slap the label of ‘heretic’ on me without thinking deeper. Dogmatic Christians might argue, rage, and quote verses at me.

Anyone can find contradictions in The Bible to further their own agenda while poking holes in others’.

In fact, you could argue that’s all I’ve done here myself, but if I’m wrong for doing it, then so are any hyper-triggered dissenters doing the same. Ultimately…

I read everything, the Bible included, from the perspective of love.

When people read things, they’re reading through a certain lens. And though most don’t admit it, they’re often reading with the subconscious goal not of finding real truth, but of proving themselves right. Or they’re reading to find ways to put others down. Or they’re reading to ‘win a debate’ and come out feeling superior to others.

When I read, am I doing any of those things?

It’s possible, but I sit with this question whenever I read anything, to make sure I’m reading with the best intentions. When I read The Bible I’m gleaning whatever value I can from it through the lens of love and empowerment. Because I know if I was sitting down with Jesus he would want me to do so. He’d be extremely loving. And even if he was ‘flipping tables’ in righteous anger, he’d be doing so out of love. Jesus’s teachings centered on positivity and love, and anything I read that doesn’t resonate with that, I’m unlikely to believe he said or meant it.

Does that mean I’m cherry-picking what works for me?

Yes, and I encourage you to do the same.

You’re on earth to live your individual best life. You’re going to encounter words from all across the ages, and it’s up to you and you alone to figure out the meaning and truth of them for yourself.

And you have all the tools necessary to do so.

You have your own personal connection with God (source), and it’s with you always regardless of time, space, ‘rules’, or language. You have your emotional guidance system, your internal compass. Use it to know what interpretations empower you to be more loving, and to know what drains you, or makes you a less loving person.

Only you know what’s true for you.

I’ve written this from my decades of study, practice, experience, and speaking truth… and that’s what I’m doing once again here.

What really matters isn’t how many little holes someone can poke in what I’ve written with their ‘biblical ammo.’ What really matters isn’t whether I’m ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, a ‘devil’ or a ‘wise man’…

…What truly matters is YOU.

Does YOUR interpretation of Jesus’s teachings help you manifest the life you want easier, faster, and more fulfillingly… or does the interpretation I’ve offered here empower you more?

Because disempowered humans suck, and Jesus never wanted that for you.

Does YOUR current understanding of Jesus’s teachings empower you to live well and create a great life, or does mine? Have you tried both on for size? Have you given each approach a reasonable experiment to feel your own conscience and personal connection with God guiding you as you experience them?

Because what I’m writing here is aimed to give you an eye-opening, empowering perspective on achieving your dreams, just as Jesus intended with his teachings.

Are you able to tune into your heart, and let it tell you whether or not what the message behind my words is true? Or will you jump to triggered snap-judgments from an intellectual, debate-focused mind, eager to see only the surface level of a certain word or phrase?

“For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” — 1 Samuel 16:7

1 Samuel 16:7 - Bible And Law Of Attraction

Jesus paid close attention to people’s ‘hearts’, their ‘vibes’, and discerned where they were coming from even if they didn’t speak his language or understand his teachings. He assessed people on their merit, value, and the love they embodied… then treated them accordingly.

This meant that sometimes he would dismiss his own family:

“And his mother and his brothers came, and standing outside they sent to him and called him. And a crowd was sitting around him, and they said to him, ‘Your mother and your brothers are outside, seeking you.’ And he answered them, ‘Who are my mother and my brothers?’’” — Mark 3:31

Other times he would celebrate the most brutal pagans:

“When Jesus heard this, he marveled and said to those who followed him, ‘Truly, I tell you, with no one in Israel have I found such faith.’ ” — Matthew 8:10

The centurion in the verse above was one the most unlikely people to ‘marvel’ Jesus. He was a Roman Gentile, likely with a pagan upbringing, stationed in Palestine as a man of war, achieving centurion-rank in the brutal Roman martial arts. Not exactly the résumé you’d expect for becoming one of the Bible’s great heroes of faith.

And recall this verse from earlier:

“‘Truly, I say to you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes go into the kingdom of God before you.’” — Matthew 21:28

Basically, money-handling ‘bankers’ and scandalously dressed sex-workers Jesus said would connect to source and manifest their dreams before his supposedly ‘devout’ followers.

Think deeper. Ask yourself, “who is more aligned with divinity, LOA-believing-celebs like Oprah and Jim Carrey who are providing jobs, growing empires, and creating huge positive impact on humanity, or anonymous internet commenters raging about how *their* interpretation is correct and everyone else is wrong?”

Kanye West is an incredibly accomplished manifestor. Many would say what he’s done in his lifetime is on the level of ‘miraculous.’ (Time Magazine certainly thought so.) On the other hand, many revile, write-off, or dismiss him as much as certain other historical figures.

Whatever the case, in the last few years Yeezy went ‘hyper-Christian,’ born-again-style…

…but did you know he’s also written a song called ‘Law Of Attraction’, which he later re-wrote as ‘Use This Gospel?’

Although Kanye never seemed to be the most articulate person, and actively avoids reading… If he and I discussed my article, do you think he’d understand what I’m saying? And do you think he’s more effective at aligning with source than you or I?

Because I’d bet anything he’s created his massive impact on society, culture, art, and the world using law of attraction. And whether he calls it religion, LOA, quantum science, or something else, all that really matters is that he experimented with and practiced it for himself. He applied himself to see if it felt right or not. He saw whether it got him closer to his hopes and dreams, or further from them. And the same goes for you.

Food for thought.

Some of the best followers of Jesus don’t get involved in any kind of ‘religion,’ and may not even mention Jesus’s name.

How?

Because they’re busy applying and living his principles, with hardcore committment, even in the face of immense family or social pressure, press slandering, and more.

They’re simply out there creating value for the world, manifesting their dreams, providing jobs, blessing charities, etc… and doing it with as much love as they possibly can.

Anyway, my point about the roman centurion, these celebrities, and even myself is this:

Jesus often saw the truth of people that the average person did not, so before we label anyone as anything, look deeper, just like Jesus would.

One final thing I’d like to note:

I didn’t write this to ‘convert’ anyone.

I’m not trying to get you to follow, believe, or ‘use’ the law of attraction.

I’m not seeking agreement about Jesus’s teachings.

I simply want to offer a fresh perspective that makes you think, and possibly nudges you towards a more empowering life for yourself and the people you care about. I could’ve been playing League Of Legends for the last few days but I wrote this instead, because I aim to enlighten.

I’d like you to look around at the state of the world today, and ask yourself “What has following ‘traditional’, ‘standard’ interpretations of the Bible done for the world and your life in particular? Could more fulfillment be gained with a different view?”

Jesus and his disciples spat on people’s ‘traditions.’

“See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition…” — Colossians 2:8

“Jesus asks why do you transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?” — Matthew 15:3

Ask yourself, “has the world become more filled with love with Christians ignoring the law of attraction? Or has it become more polarized, violent, and extreme? Is the world uniting more and caring about others more, or snapping, triggering, and turning away from others more? Is maybe this LOA stuff worth some real deep soul-searching?

Maybe it’s time to put traditional interpretations aside for a bit?

What do you think would happen if all the “Judgy Judgersons” dropped Christian dogma and began meditating, seeking harmony within instead? What do you think would happen if people were actually clear on how to manifest their dreams without harming others?

I’d love for you to manifest your dreams, big or small. Jesus has taught us all how to do exactly that, using the law of attraction just like him.

The only question left is…

…Does your heart tell you to label & recoil from the views presented here? Or to ignore them altogether? Or does your heart tell you, deep down, that it’s wise to explore them further?

Whatever answer you come up with will affect the course of your life powerfully.

Choose with care.

Hear, my son, and be wise, and direct your heart in the way.” — Proverbs 23:19

Note: Law Of Attraction is simple at its core but –like many skills– has a nuanced execution and takes a decent amount of time & effort to ‘get right’ for those not naturally gifted… so there’s more to it than I mentioned here. I wrote this simply because many people seem to think LOA and Christianity aren’t compatible, or that Jesus would’ve frowned on LOA, when the truth is quite opposite.
