I listened to an Evangelical Minister tell his congregation that they must see that secret place within
them where there is just God and them. I just had to respond, because there is no way we can
function in a consciousness of Oneness, when we believe there is us and God living in us. There is
You do a wonderful job of explaining to your congregation how they are supposed to think and function, but you skate around and around the means of making it possible for them to do so! You spoke this morning about how important it is for them to get into that secret place within them where there is just them and God, but you failed to tell them how! You keep telling them to ask Jesus to come into their hearts. Your concept of the Spiritual Rebirth, is erroneous! We are only 'reborn', when we realize that the "I" within us is God, the Father! When are you going to see that NO JOHN OR JANE DOE, HAS ANY BEING? The ONLY One, who has 'being', is God... the Father! The 'person' we believe ourselves to be, is but the illusion in which the whole of the human race functions! It is for this reason, that we 'must be born again'! THERE IS ONLY THE FATHER! Our salvation lies, in walking AS the Father... as Jesus did. Not in worshipping Jesus!
Christianity is the only religion that I know of that tells us that there is a method of living that enables any one of us to, 'work out own salvation'. Christianity is the only religion that I know of that claims there is a way of living that brings about a physical transformation whereby men, can transcend into the heavens as living 'Spiritual beings'. And those who have done so, are mentioned in the scriptures! They were known as Enoch, Elijah, Moses and He who was known as Jesus. There are probably others, but mentioning these few will suffice for now, for if it is so, then there is indeed a way of life we can live in order to be counted among those who have attained this greatest of all feats! For what could be of greater worth than achieving the secret of partaking in Gods Eternal reality? As Jesus said, 'what doth it profit a man if he should gain the whole World and lose his own soul'? Nothing can exceed this accomplishment! What could be of greater value than Life Eternal? And no Church that I know of has solved the mystery. Whether it was by chance or by God, I was given the key that eventually led to the 'formula'! And I have tried my best to describe it in words that even a little child should be able to understand .It is contained in virtually every page of my book, the Christ Mind. And because one's state of Mind continues by its very nature to evolve, I continue to see reasons why the Church has virtually stood still over the past 2000 years! But because it requires the reader to filter through four or five hundred pages I have written, I will try to 'encapsulate' the most important points in this essay!
I do not know how the first three of those I mentioned discovered it, but discover it they did! We read in the Bible that Enoch walked 'with' God (and we know that so too did Jesus). But more than that, we know that Jesus also walked AS God! Therein lies the key. To walk 'with' God, is to walk AS God! Every child that has ever been born on Planet Earth, has been God in the infant stage of development, though virtually no one has ever come to realize this great truth. Because tens of millions did not know this... they functioned as men, and so they died AS men! So God in His infinite mercy, came into the World by way of a 'Virgin Birth', to show us that whoever should come to realize that He was our reality, and whoever should choose to 'walk' As Him, could, through faith in this realization, have Everlasting Life'! This is the formula! By realizing and acknowledging that God (the Father) is the "I" within us... and by realizing that the person our parents created when they named us, is but the illusion in which the whole of humanity functions. No matter what name our parents would have given us, we would still refer to ourselves as "I", when asked for our opinion. 'I think'... is how we all would be apt to respond. We can only solve the enigma through reasoning! We have been led to believe that 'Jesus' is Gods only begotten son! But John 3; 16 tells us that this is not the case. By believing that 'Jesus ' is God's "only begotten son" we lost the awareness that we are all sons and daughters of God by birth! For John 3:16 tells us that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but would have Everlasting Life! And as I said, the key lies in walking AS Him (the Father), not by believing 'in' Him! As God is the Vine and we are the branches, we must no longer believe IN Him, but function AS Him!
No one has given any thought to what motivated 'Jesus' to walk AS the Father. No one has realized what it was that inspired Him to say "I" and my Father are One! This is because of the erroneous concept of the 'Virgin Birth'! Because no one has ever solved the mystery of the 'Virgin Birth', the whole World has failed to discover the way of mans salvation! Jesus came to see His relationship to God, through His Mothers revelation, which took place through her 'insight' (when the Truth (the Holy Spirit) came upon her). In my opinion... the greatest mistake the religious elite has ever made, was in misinterpreting Mary's Spiritual revelation... in their erroneous concept of the 'Virgin Birth'! The Virgin Birth had nothing to do with the birth of her and Joseph's son. It had to do with her Spiritual revelation... when the Holy Spirit, "came upon her"! The 'Virgin Birth', took place in Mary's consciousness! Mary experienced the Spiritual Rebirth, when she saw that 'man' and God were One! The Spiritual Rebirth and the Virgin Birth, are One and the same! Her 'consciousness', was the 'womb' in which this 'child' (this idea) was conceived! She realized that God (the Father), was the reality of every 'man' (and every 'woman') on the face of the Earth and that children of men, were actually 'children of God! It was this Truth (this belief) that she passed on to her son whom she and Joseph named "Jesus"! It was His faith in this Truth that motivated Him to walk AS the Father! It was this that He reminded her of when he said, as a boy, "Wist ye not that I am about my Fathers business"? It was in this consciousness that he turned the water into wine, healed the sick, fed the multitudes and raised the dead! Every 'human' child that has ever been born on Planet Earth, has been (And always will be), the Father in the infant stage of development, but virtually no one has ever realized this amazing truth! It was not "Jesus" that Mary gave birth to, it was the Father in the infant stage of development that she gave birth to! And she named Him 'Jesus'! So every man and every woman on the Planet, is God (the Father) embodied, but virtually no one is aware of this! God (the Father) is the "I" within each of us! Convincing her son ' Jesus' that He and God were One and the same, was the 'Virgin Mary's' priceless contribution to humanity! Had she failed to get her son to see that He was God embodied, we might never have discovered that man and God are One! It enabled 'Jesus' to prove to humanity unequivocally; the creative power inherent in the 'human' mind, when we function (through faith) in the belief that God is the "I" within us! (The 'human' mind and the Divine Mind, are one and the same 'mind'!) Through His faith in the belief that He and God were One, He proved for all Eternity that 'man ' is indeed God individualized...that man is God in the flesh! The Spiritual Rebirth, is always a 'Virgin Birth'. It always heralds the birth of the Christ!
All the Worlds religions, have failed to discover this astounding Truth! God did indeed make 'man' in His image and likeness! But He did not create the 'person' we believe ourselves to be. Our parents, in ignorance of what manner of beings we are, gave being to the person we believe ourselves to be when they named us at our birth! In doing so, they inadvertently gave being to the illusion in which the whole of the human race functions! There is ONLY God (the Father)! He truly spoke the truth when He said to Phillip, 'He, who hath seen me, hath seen the Father'! Whether we be Greek or Jew, bond or free, male or female... THERE IS NO ONE BESIDES OR OTHER THAN THE FATHER! In the realization that God (the Father) is the "I" within us, lies our salvation! (If we choose to walk in that consciousness!) When we see that God (the Father) is the "I" within us, and should we choose to walk in that consciousness, we begin to take upon ourselves the likeness of the Father. It is that likeness that is the Christ! The Christ is but God, the other, personified! We were all created to be Christ's if we only realized this! We die as men because we choose to live as men! But... should we choose to function AS the Father ... As Christ's, we need never die!
From the creation of man, virtually no one has seen this. Adam and Eve functioned AS 'Adam' and 'Eve'. (They had no idea that they were God embodied!) So 'men' have searched the World over for God, never ever realizing that He is the "I" within us. Nor have we ever been made to see, that the 'person' our parents created when they named us at our birth, is the Satan that our Churches warn us to beware of! God (the Father) is the "I AM "within every One of us, but virtually no one realizes this! Thus the necessity of the Spiritual Rebirth... the realization that God (the Father), is the "I' within us! This realization, is synonymous with the Virgin birth... a 'birth' that takes place in the consciousness of whoever should realize that the "I" within them is God, the Father! Each of us is the Eternal Divine Mind embodied, and to function (through faith) in this realization, is to function As the Christ! Therein lies our salvation!
Is it not written, I have said ye are God's, and all of you are children of the most high? Man and God are synonymous! They are One! One is Life Universal and the other is that Universal Life individualized in a temple of flesh! But we can only function AS God through faith in 'being' God! And we can only have faith in 'being' God when we see that the "I" within us can be none other than God! ("I" am the Vine, ye are the branches He said.) Are branches not just an extension of the Vine? Of course they are. So the "I" within Him, has to be the "I" within us... the "I" that I am! No living 'thing', exists apart from, or other than the Source... other than the Father.
