"He who is not with Me is against Me
; and he who does not gather with Me scatters."
This statement here from my interpretation is talking about wholeness and division. The one who is not with the whole is isolated and self-divided. If you do not understand the concept of wholeness, here is a definition found in the dictionary:
- Containing all components; complete: a whole wardrobe for the tropics.
- Not divided or disjoined; in one unit: a whole loaf.
- Constituting the full amount, extent, or duration: The baby cried the whole trip home.
- Having the same parents: a whole sister.
Ultimately, those who practice intolerance are those who scatter. It is the ego, the self that forms the barrier. Jesus's original message was about unification.
2. Not divided or disjoined; in one unit: a whole loaf
It was at the last supper, that the apostles ate from One loaf and drank from One cup. The blood represents the spirit of God, having no structure or form but is manifest in all things, it is a symbol of unification. The bread, representing the ego, was broken into many pieces. However the bread was also mingled in the wine. It is through the spirit that we are made one body. It is in that reality, in the kingdom of heaven, we are all one and the same; undivided and whole. In the beginning there was One, and the end will be the same as the beginning. You see, the kingdom of heaven is the beginning.
The disciples said to Jesus, "Tell us how our end will be."
Jesus said, "Have you discovered, then, the beginning, that you look for the end? For where the beginning is, there will the end be. Blessed is he who will take his place in the beginning; he will know the end and will not experience death." -The Gospel of Thomas
If one needs an incentive to believe in God, that being heaven or hell, then they are far away from the kingdom. They are driven by their very ego, they are those who scatter, who by their lips praise God, but their hearts are far from God. They are not of the Whole.
And if one says "You are serving Satan", they do not even know who Satan is. They do not know who God is.
Those who are of the whole are angels, and those who are divided are demons. Those who are whole are the sons and daughters of God, and those who are divided are the sons and daughters of men.
