(Updated 7/2/2013) – As the great gnostic Jesus said in the Gospel of Thomas; “Know what is in front of your face, and what is hidden from you will be disclosed to you. For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed. And there is nothing buried that will not be raised.”
The bible is filled with hidden esoteric Gnostic teachings and allegories on Gnosticism. However, to the uninitiated, these secret mysteries remain hidden and they are not revealed to those that simply do not have a pure heart or motives in their quest for truth.
This ancient policy of light and truth is as old as we conscious humans are. It is just the natural order of nature in which we humans must adhere to these natural laws which govern our bodies (DNA), minds and souls.
Many people are unaware that some of the most famous early Gnostics had actually helped form the religion of Christianity and also found the Catholic Church. Gnostics like Simon the Sorcerer or Simon the Magician, in Latin Simon Magus, who is more commonly known today as Saint Peter. Irenaeus had said he was one of the founders of gnosticism and according to Bible scholars such as Barbara Thiering and Hans Jonas, Simon Magus was also one of the founders of the Gnostic Church.
Saint Peter is now the Rock of the Catholic Church in which we find his “title” also has secret hidden meaning contained within, and the Catholic Church is essentially an esoteric gnostic christian church. This same said priesthood had then wrote one of the best esoteric gnostic books in history called the “New Testament or New Law.”
There is a lot of hidden esoteric gnosticism contained within the scriptures and below I have included some examples of gnostic bible verses in order to help you see the light of these secret mysteries such as in 1 Corinthians 2:7 – “But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory” and in John 8:32 – Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Biblical Example of Praying for Wisdom- Solomon
1 Kings 3:5-12 – At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night, and God said, “Ask what I shall give you.” And Solomon said, “You have shown great and steadfast love to your servant David my father, because he walked before you in faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart toward you. And you have kept for him this great and steadfast love and have given him a son to sit on his throne this day. And now, O LORD my God, you have made your servant king in place of David my father, although I am but a little child. I do not know how to go out or come in. And your servant is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen, a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for multitude.
Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?” It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked this. And God said to him, “Because you have asked this, and have not asked for yourself long life or riches or the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern what is right, behold, I now do according to your word.
Behold, I give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none like you has been before you and none like you shall arise after you.
