The Bible was written for the good of all humanity, but the greatest underlining message within the Holy Scriptures, has been missed. That message being we are all One, and that God, IS THAT ONE! Paul said in Philippians, "let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus", yet he failed to function in that consciousness in an awareness of being God embodied. He saw 'Christ' as being a 'being' separate and apart from himself. He saw 'Jesus' as being the Christ, with every one else being nothing more than 'human beings'. The only difference between Paul and Jesus was that Jesus functioned AS the Father, while Paul functioned AS Paul, as the person his parents created when they named him at his birth. Jesus functioned As God (as the Father), while Paul functioned as 'Paul'. He did not realize as Jesus did, that the "I" within him was God! He did not realize that he too embodied the capacity to function AS the Father. He did not realize that children of men, are actually 'children of God'!
In Philippians 3:19, he also stated that he sought to 'know Him (Jesus) and the power of his resurrection'.
Paul failed to realize that Jesus' power lay in His (Jesus) faith that God was the "I" within him! His Mother had taught Him this from the cradle. Had He not had faith in that belief, He may never have become the best known man in the history of humanity, and we may never have discovered the key to our salvation. It was through His faith in that belief that He healed the sick, gave sight to the blind, raised the dead, and fed the multitudes. This was the ONLY difference between Him and the rest of humanity. It was His faith in that belief that caused Him to be physically transformed, enabling Him to ascend into the heavens as a living being of Light! It was this that Paul never discovered! Yet the Christian Church has focused almost entirely on the teachings of Paul the Apostle.
Even though every one who has read the Bible and believes it to be the word of God, virtually no one believes that man and God, are One. But Mary's child proved otherwise. And the only difference between how He functioned compared to the rest of human kind, can be credited to the teaching of His Mother! That the "I" within 'man' is God, the Father, had to have been what was revealed to her when the 'Holy Ghost' came upon her. Mary had to have realized that God was the reality of all humanity! (The Virgin Birth) This is what she must have taught her son right from His birth! It was this that He tried to get His disciples to see. He did not keep it a secret! "I" and my Father (God) are One, He told them. "He who hath seen me, hath seen the Father"(There is no one else). Every so-called 'human' child that has ever been born on Planet Earth, has been God, the father, in the infant stage of development, yet no one has ever fully realized this since His resurrection and ascension. He is the "I" within us! It is only through faith in this realization, that we can 'enter' the Kingdom of God (that we can function AS the Father). By no other means is it possible! Paul did indeed have a Spiritual conversion and his instructions pertaining to Christian principles are pretty much impeccable. But for one thing! Only AS God can we attain it! So long as we function as the 'person' our parents created when they named us, it is impossible to 'enter the Kingdom of God'! We cannot function AS God and as the 'person' we believe ourselves to be at the same time! We must choose to die to self, and the ONLY way that can be accomplished, is to realize that God is the "I" within us. This belief is not just a concept, but an actual fact. We are Gods by birth, but virtually no one has ever realized this! Our heavenly Father was actually our Earthly Father as well! God has been the reality of humanity from the creation of 'man' (of Adam) God and 'Adam' were One!
So too was God the reality of 'Eve'. Their children were actually 'children of God', but they were not aware of this. And nothing has changed! Children of men, are still 'children of God'! God is the "I" within us. Only through absolute faith in this belief, can we walk in the Christ Mind. This is what the World has yet to realize! Thus the necessity of the Spiritual Rebirth, which can only be set in motion through faith in the belief that the "I" within us is God, the Father.
