I wrote an essay a few weeks ago... which I entitled "There is no one besides or other than the
Father" These conclusions were arrived at as a result of experiencing the Spiritual Rebirth. I know
that the Spiritual Rebirth is synonymous with the Virgin Birth. The realization that God is the "I"
within us amounts to an astounding revelation. You will see things from a completely different
perspective. You will begin to see things through the eyes of God! These last few essays, are the
culmination of the Spiritual Rebirth...the" Virgin Birth", which I experienced some 46 or 47 years ago!
When religious beliefs are based on a false premise, we can only expect an erroneous conclusion. Adam and Eve had no idea that they were God individualized, so they inevitably fell. And throughout the Old Testament, only a few ever realized that man was God embodied. (Such as Enoch, Noah, Moses, Elijah, Isaiah) And He who was known as Jesus, demonstrated to His disciples what manner of beings we so called 'human beings' actually are, but no one got the message. He demonstrated to the World that man and God, are One and the same. But... through the concept of the birth of Mary's child, (the Virgin Birth) we were led to believe that 'Jesus of Nazareth' (and He alone) was Gods 'only begotten son'. We have been led to believe that it was 'Jesus' whom she gave birth to. But not so! It was God Himself in the infant stage of development that she gave birth to. (As is every other human child that has ever been born) And she named Him 'Jesus'. Her child was no different than any other child that had ever been born, or that ever will be born on Planet Earth! Each of us at birth is God in the infant stage of development, only no one has ever realized this.
Every human child that has ever been born embodies everything necessary to function AS the Christ. All that is necessary to enable us to do so, is faith in the belief that the "I" within us is God! Children of men, are children of God by birth! We are told that God made man in His image and likeness in the first page in The Bible, yet no one seemingly believes it! If every living 'thing' God created was able to bring forth 'after their kind', why were we not made aware of the fact that this also applies to 'man'?
What has kept us from realizing that we are Gods, is the erroneous explanation pertaining to the birth of Mary's child. Mary gave birth to a child of God ...a male child whom she named "Jesus"! "Jesus" was just the name she was told to name Him! The name Jesus is synonymous with the name Emanuel, which means 'God with us' (is us)! Our names have hidden our true identity! It is the "I" within us, that is who we are, and that "I", IS THE FATHER! Faith in this realization, is all we need to know in order for us to function As the Father...as did He who was named Jesus! God is the reality of every child that has ever been born on Planet Earth! It was this that Mary was made to see, when the 'Holy Spirit' (the Truth) 'came upon her'. It was this she taught to her son. It was this that inspired Him to "walk AS His Father"! It has been touted as a "Virgin" Birth! What Mary had experienced was the Spiritual Rebirth. The Spiritual Rebirth, is ALWAYS a Virgin birth...a 'birth' that takes place in our consciousness, when we REALIZE that the "I" within us, is the Father! The Virgin birth and the Spiritual Rebirth, are One and the same, but we have been led to believe that 'Jesus of Nazareth', and He alone, was Gods only begotten son, when in reality God is the reality of every child that has ever been born on Planet Earth! God is the "I" within each of us...the reality of each of us!
To function AS the Father, is to function as the 'son'...AS THE CHRIST! (they are one and the same?) The Father ...the "I" within us, is Gods son. If the whole of humanity were to realize this, there would finally be Peace on Earth! Then there would be no need of us striving to get the better of our fellowman, or striving to possess wealth, or striving for fame and fortune, when we embody the means of creating everything we need! We embody the consciousness that heals the sick, that enables the blind to see and the creativity to create whatever we need. "What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them"! PLUS Life Eternal! All we lack in order for us to function as the Christ, (as God's son) is "faith in the belief that THE "I" WITHIN US"...IS God the Father. This sums up what every Christian has been searching for but has yet to find. Man and God are One! We are ALL One, and that One, is God... the Father!
For God (the Father) so loved the World, that He Himself suffered the agony and the humility of the cross, that we might see that 'man' and God are One! And whosoever should see this and choose to function AS the Father, would not perish, but have everlasting Life. And whosoever should see this and still reject Him as their reality, are as guilty of crucifying Him, as were they who called for His crucifixion some 2000 years ago. And such as these, shall die as men because they chose to live as men.
