The birth of the 'Christ', is always a 'virgin' birth, a Spiritual birth, (the Spiritual Rebirth!) It is a 'conception' that is always initiated by the TRUTH (impregnated by the Holy Spirit). The 'womb' where this conception takes place, is the consciousness of the individual. This 'conception' takes place when an individual is convinced, that the I AM within him/her, IS their true identity, and that their 'name', is just their 'physical' identity, their 'outer identity'. The acknowledgement and the acceptance of this truth, is the beginning of the 'birth' of the Christ… It is that which is known as the 'immaculate' conception!
The Apostle Paul said, "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus". To walk AS God, is to walk in the Christ Mind. Paul never discovered this. (He functioned as a 'branch', AS 'Paul'… not as the "I am" within him. (Not as the Vine)
The Church would have us believe that the "Christ" came to die that we might live. Not so; It is "we" (the person we believe ourselves to be) who must die, that the "Christ" might live!
Our salvation does not lie in accepting Gods son 'Jesus' as our Lord and savior. It lies in realizing and accepting the fact that the Eternal Himself (the Father) is the "I" within us! As Jesus realized! When we see that the "I" within us is our true identity, and that this "I" IS God (the Father), we begin to take upon ourselves the 'likeness of the Father'. That likeness, is the Christ! In this realization lies our salvation.
"I, even I, am the Lord, and beside me there is no savior."
Isaiah, 43: 11
Of ourselves we have no being! Only the "I" has being. Jesus knew this. Paul did not!
