I listened to an Evangelical Minister this morning, (Easter Sunday) tell his audience that a resurrection did indeed take place from the sepulcher in which they had placed the body of Him who was known As Jesus. I doubt that any believing Christian denies that a 'resurrection' did take place. What they did not know however, was how or why it took place. It took place, because this particular 'man' knew that He and the Eternal Spirit of God were one and the same! What 'He' was, is what every 'man/woman ' that has ever walked the Earth actually is! All that we are, is the Spirit of God individualized... the Spirit of God embodied! (Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you... for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are!) There IS NOT the Spirit of God AND us; there is ONLY the Spirit of God! And the 'person' our parents created when they named us, is but the illusion in which we were taught to walk! Every 'man/woman' on Planet Earth is nothing less than the Spirit of God embodied in a temple of flesh! (Which is exactly what Adam and Eve were.)
So who did Jesus say He was? He said, 'I and my (heavenly) Father are One'! And "He who hath seen me, hath seen the Father"! There is ONLY the Father! He realized that he and God were One! He also realized that God was the reality of every other 'man/woman' on Earth! Man is God embodied! Why else would He have said 'what you see me do you can do also', if God (the Father) was not the 'reality' of each of us? Each of us, is actually an individualized manifestation of our heavenly Father (of God). (Who is an Omniscient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent 'Spirit'!) God made us in His image and likeness, by 'becoming' us. In like manner as a Vine gives being to a 'branch'! By 'being' us! He is the 'invisible' reality of each of us. (The Life, consciousness and intelligence of each of us.) As I have said many times. 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!
Whether we realize it or not, each of us is the Father manifesting AS a 'human being'! (Male and female created He them in His image and likeness!) We are actually 'Spiritual' beings in physical temples! Adam and Eve were God individualized! And so, through procreation, they gave 'being' to children AFTER their kind! Giving 'being' to Himself as 'physical being's ‘ was Gods way of creating God's! Like I said, rabbits will always produce rabbits, and elephants will always give birth to elephants and 'human' beings will always give birth to 'human' beings, who are in reality, God individualized! Every 'man' on Earth, is actually God (the Father) manifesting in a so-called 'physical' form! BELIEVE IT OR NOT! Man and God, are actually One and the same. One is the Universal I AM, and the other is the Universal I AM individualized. One is the Vine and the other is but a 'branch'! This is why we each, (if we all spoke the English language,) proclaim our relationship to God every time we introduce ourselves. Every time we say, Hello... I am known as, or I am (followed by the name our parents named us at our birth) We are actually all One, and that One, is God (the Father) There is no one else! He is the "I" within us, but virtually no one is aware of this amazing truth! Each of us, is actually God... the Father, individualized!
So you can see that it was not 'Jesus' that rose from the tomb! It was the Father (the Christ) who was resurrected! (The Father and the Christ are One!) Only every one thought it was 'Jesus' who arose! 'Jesus' was just His name... the Fathers name! It was not 'Jesus' that Mary gave birth to! She gave birth to the Father (in the infant stage of development.) It was just that she had been told by an angel of the Lord to name Him 'Jesus', meaning God 'with' us! Meaning God IS us! (My interpretation) The only difference between Him and the rest of us, was that Mary taught Him that He was God (the Father) from the cradle. It was through His faith in this truth that inspired Him to walk AS the Father! Whereas the rest of us were taught to function as mere men; as the 'person' our parents named us! Never were we told that we were the Spirit of God individualized! But we too can function as He did, once we come to see that God is the "I" within us (if we should choose to!) It is for this reason that we must choose to die to self, for the person our parents created when they named us, is but the illusion in which the whole of the human race functions. Humanity is God (the Father) embodied, but virtually no one is aware of this stupendous truth! He did indeed make 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! And thanks to the erroneous concept of the Spiritual Rebirth that the Evangelical religions of the World have been promoting (and are still promoting), it is impossible for 'unenlightened' humanity to see (spiritually speaking) that we too... are God embodied!
It was so important to God, (the Father) that we might see that we too are God's, that He suffered the agony of the cross on our behalf. For should we live as sons and daughters of the most high, (instead of living as this 'person' our parents created when they named us) we would NEVER die! It was this He tried to get His disciples to see, but none of them got the message! Nor has the Church seen this yet! Men die as men because they choose to live as men! They are so focused on worshipping 'Jesus', that they have failed to realize that what He was, so too are we! His parents told Him at His birth that He and God were One and the same, whereas our parents named us and raised us to believe that we are nothing more than mere 'men'. Giving us the World we see today!
