The Essenes were an ancient spiritual group with origins in Judaism. They lived thousands of years ago in the deserts along the Dead Sea and in parts of Judea. The Essenes practiced meditation, were vegetarians, and lived a strictly pure lifestyle. Today, we’ll present selections from when John the Baptist speaks to those seeking baptism, about Jesus Christ the Chosen One. He also expounds on the importance of following the Holy Law, being compassionate and merciful to all around us, as well as the sinful nature of consuming animal-people flesh.

“And it soon came to pass that the time had arrived for Jesus’ cousin, John, to make ready a holy people for Jesus’ name. For the Holy Word of God came unto John in the wilderness, and John set out to complete the special calling, even preaching the baptism of repentance from the remission of sins. For it was written in the prophets concerning him: ‘Prepare ye the holy way of the Chosen One, make straight the pathway of the Anointed. For every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth. For all flesh shall see the salvation of God at work among the people and every eye shall behold the glory of his way.’

‘Keep yourselves from bloodshed, and all manner of blood, from anything strangled, and from dead bodies of birds and beasts, and fish eat ye not. And from all deeds of cruelty, and from all that is gotten of wrong, yea, contrary to natural laws of good and Humane Love.’

But John answered, saying unto them all, ‘I indeed baptize you with water; but the Holy One, mightier than I, yet comes, the latchet of whose very shoes I am not worthy to unloose. For He shall also baptize you with water and with fire, for a fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly purge His floor, and will gather the true wheat into His storehouse; but the chaff He will burn with destructive fire. For his fan airs the judgment of the wicked, who will be as if they were never born at all; but they of righteous heart, will inherit the fountain of living waters, wherein eternal springs of truth impart life everlasting.’ And John, known as the Baptist, continued in many exhortations, and many people did listen and longed to hear more and know of the One greater than he, the Holy One to come in the name of the Holy Law of God. Thus, John prepared the way, even as Jesus’ forerunner of holy truths.”
