As He hung on the cross, Jesus said ~ It is finished! He could do no more than give his Life that we might see that God is 'man's' reality! I will say it also for the last time. Creating 'man' was Gods way of creating Gods! God is the "I"(or the I am) within us!
The Christ Mind ~ is the end result of an Evolution of Consciousness! And the idea, that the "I" within us is God ~ is the 'seed' that sets in motion this realization ~ our Spiritual Rebirth!
God made each of us, in His image and likeness, but He did not create the person we believe ourselves to be ~ our parents did that when they named us at our birth. Thus the necessity of the Spiritual Rebirth!
It could be said that 'man' ~ is God in the process of 'becoming' God!
Although a 'man' (male or female) is never less than God ~ we can only function AS God, when we realize that God is the "I" (or the 'I am') within us!
By no other means can we 'enter' the Kingdom of God! By no other means can we attain God consciousness ~ the Christ Mind.
Whether we realize this or not, every 'human' child that has ever been born on Planet Earth, is (and always has been) God ~ the Father ~ in the infant stage of development! (He is the Vine ~ we are the branches) We have never been anything less than God, but only a few have ever realized this! (Enoch, Elijah and Jesus ~ to name the few that I know of) But any man or woman on Earth that comes to 'see' that God is the "I" within them; and chooses to die to self in order to walk in that consciousness, can ~ through faith in that realization ~ function As the Father (as the Christ) ~ as Jesus did. Only through this realization, can we walk as Jesus walked!
And we will only 'see' the 'Second Coming' of the Christ when we realize this! If we wait for the return of Jesus, we wait in vain! Every individual on Earth was meant to function As the Christ ~ the 'third person' of the Trinity. The Holy Spirit (the Spirit of God) is the 'Father'. And the Father personified IS THE CHRIST! (The three are One!)When we see and acknowledge God as our reality (as the "I" within us) we begin to take upon ourselves the likeness of the Father! It is that 'likeness' that is the Christ. And ~ as we function in THAT consciousness, we need never die! There is ONLY the Eternal Spirit of God! Jesus said from the cross ~ Woman ~ behold thy son. Son ~ behold thy Mother! There is no evil ~ there IS ONLY GOD! Every 'thing' is as it is because of the infallible creative action of the Creative Principle! There is no particular mystery to Spiritual Healing! As we think ~ so do we create ~ whether we like the results or not! Look past the outer appearances, and see only that which is perfect! This is what Jesus knew that enabled Him to heal the sick. And this is what men do not see ~ so they die as men. Men die AS men, only because they continue to live as men! This is what the World has failed to see!
