A Spiritual Interpretation of the Gospels by Zakary Reif

Zak shares a spiritual interpretation of the gospels, to dispel our preconceived notions about Christianity & help find the spiritual truth.

I have immense respect for all religions, because I believe that they all started off as purely spiritual introspections of life brought to us by different enlightened masters in their time. However, over the years, the message got lost along the way. I was fortunate to come across Zak, who is passionate about reforming how Christianity is seen. He was kind enough to share a spiritual interpretation of the gospels with us today.

He is deeply spiritual and dedicated to his journey back home. I enjoyed spending a Wednesday afternoon exchanging views with him, realizing that Christianity at its core is purely spiritualism.

So we had the idea to put together this piece as an opportunity for my little corner to get his fresh take on the spirituality of Christianity.

Here’s what Zak offered.

Many people are seeking wisdom about the questions of life. There are so many
modern masters to read from. Men and women who have awoken deeply to their true nature, and the true nature of life.

But I want to remind you of a man who lived centuries ago who taught us the true nature of reality. I want to remind you that there is a wealth of important information within the Gospels.

I also want to remind you of the true nature of Jesus. When you read the Bible, try to look past the dogma of religion, and past any preconceived notions that you may have about the Bible. Try to see the truth that is there waiting to be plucked like jewels.

Few realize just how much support they have available to them. Everyone feels the call from within to find the answers to the issues they face in life. But few realize that all they have to do is ask for the truth, and it will be given to them.

In reality, when you start to seek you are already asking indirectly by your desire to know. Or you are asking indirectly by any suffering you may be facing.

And when you ask, you are always answered. You may not realize at first that you have been answered, but the answers always come.

Jesus came among us as human a being to deliver to us the true nature and structure of reality. Within these teachings are the structure and hierarchy of heaven, the law of attraction, and the true eternal nature of God’s love for us and all things.

All of which have been expounded upon by modern masters of truth as well. Although Jesus was, and is more than a master of truth. In reality, there is a golden thread of truth that flows through all teachings, and all things.

At the core, all there is one simple truth of life. This simple truth is abstracted through the infinite perception of souls living their material lives on earth.

When you finally seek deeply within yourself, you find the universal truth of reality. Then you look outwards again, and what you see is the same universal truth at the core of everything.

You see this universal truth that is echoed within all religions, and all people, and all places. Everyone is perceiving this one simple truth according to their ability to receive. According to the clarity of their perception.

Just Ask: A Spiritual Interpretation of John 14:12-15 from the Gospels

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

-John 14:12-15, Holy Bible, King James Version

All you ever have to do is ask. God, Jesus, and all of heaven are just waiting at your door. All you have to do is believe. You must talk to God and ask God to show you what is true.

So many spiritual teachers miss this point. That all you have to do is ask. Jesus tells us in Matthew 7:7 “7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you”.

This leads to the true nature of prayer. Because we are all a part of the same Body of God, interconnected by the same spirit of God, we have a direct channel to God. And not only to God but also to Jesus, Angels, and each other.

Within us, we are this soul-level perception that is beyond the thinking mind, and body. We are the awareness that is perceiving all things, not that which is perceived.

Because we are in reality soul-level perception within our material forms, on the fundamental level we communicate through pure perception.

This communication through pure perceiving awareness has been called psychic phenomena, but really it is only the basic way we all have always communicated.

We all have only forgotten that it is possible and is there. When we pray, we are communicating inwards through our interconnection with the Body of God’s spirit to God through psychic awareness.

God communicates both directly into your heart, or through Angels. Angels are God’s order of workers and messengers. God and Angels will often begin by communicating with us through the world we are so focused on.

They know we are always looking at cell phones and computer screens.

They know we are always looking outwards, and rarely inwards to the Kingdom of God. You will begin to see repeating numbers, called angel numbers all around you in the world. 1111, 2222, 3333, 4444, and so on. Sometimes the numbers may be something that you will notice like your birthday.

You may also see signs that stand out to you. Symbols and shapes that hold specific meaning to you or the questions you are asking God.

It’s even possible for God to make words people are saying or words from a TV playing near you stand out to you.

God may communicate to you through the natural world. You may see specific creatures, like spirit animals or any natural things that holds specific meaning to you.

They are trying to get your attention. Also, when you start seeking, God will lead you to books, and websites where information that you are seeking is written. Just like you are reading this web page right now. It is very important that you persist and have faith.

Never give up seeking God’s truth, which is also your truth. You will be guided again and again. What could be more important than to be free as your most authentic self?

Ask and keep asking. Never be turned away by a doubting mind. Keep reaching for truth. One of the most powerful things you can ever ask for is to know the truth.

The Love of God: A Spiritual Interpretation of Matthew 5:43-48 from the Gospels

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate
thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

– Matthew 5:43-48, Holy Bible, King James Version

These verses tell the true story of God. Jesus who is the full authority and reflection of God’s truth was telling us how God perceives and handles his children.

God’s truth is all about eternal loving patience and compassion, but also wise judgment that’s intended to teach us the truth of reality, and not to strike fear into our hearts. God is a kind, wise, and very loving parent.

Jesus tells us to love our enemies. He tells us this because he knows that everyone is unaware of their true identity, and on the path to learning the fullness of the truth of God and reality.

When you forgive those who trespass against you, you are taking the higher
awareness and the unaware and harmful actions that are directed towards you, whatever they may be, are stopped in their tracks by you.

The unawareness is not transferred to you. Instead, you must love and forgive them, because you in your deeper understanding and awareness can see just how much they are lost and confused.

And how then can you ever step into the same unawareness in return? You would be taking on the same folly yourself. Love you enemies because there are no enemies. Only misguided souls.

In this way you are a true reflection of God’s truth. Because this is the same way God views us. With deep understanding, compassion and wisdom. God shines his loving truth on the just and the unjust knowing seeing deeply to the core of all that takes place.

Seeing things as they truly are, and you can share this same vision with God. This vision is in reality your true and authentic vision. You gain this wisdom by awakening to your true nature. And you awaken by asking God for truth. By seeking truth.

Now you are beginning to understand the true nature of God. How everything in life is there for a reason and purpose.

Can you imagine a God who is so loving wise and compassionate ever casting away his children? Ever leaving them to burn and be tortured in hell?

God who teaches to love your enemies, and to turn the other cheek? Who teaches to forgive those who trespass against you? All things are taking place to teach us our lessons.

We are eternal soul-level awareness within our material forms. One life would never be enough to teach us all we need to know. Material life must be sharp and strong to teach us our lessons. And this is the perfection of God’s plan.

As you begin to see this golden truth within all that takes place, you suffering begins to fall away, replaced by a divine acceptance of the perfection within all things.

Concluding Thoughts by Vasundhra

I am of the belief that the original scriptures and rituals in each religion had a much deeper essence. And that if we can understand WHY we do them, it can bring profound healing, as well as help us build a stronger connection with the Universe. And Zak echoes that sentiment here.

So, I was moved when Zak so beautifully explained some of the teachings in the gospels and his spiritual interpretation of them. It took me back to the times when I spoke about the common eastern traditions and their spiritual meaning. You can explore that article here.

One thought on “A Spiritual Interpretation of the Gospels by Zakary Reif”

  1. Great interpretation Zak! I resonated with God talking to you through media, books, songs.
    There was a time when I was completely broken and when I turned on the radio I heard the song, “Oh hush thee my dove”. It was a magical moment for me.

    This post also brought me back memories of last year when I started seeing Jesus everywhere and in my dreams as if he was telling me I’m his beloved child and he’ll always protect me.

    I’ll read more about this! Thanks so much.
