To say that 'Jesus' was not God's 'Only' begotten son, will most certainly upset the Christian World. God the Father, is the Vine…He is also the branches (us). 'Jesus, (who was also a 'branch'), functioned As the Father (as the Vine). As we can do so as well, once we realize that God, the Father, is the "I" within us Because He did so, the World has come to think of Him as being Gods ONLY begotten son. Humanity has never been told that every 'man or woman' on Earth embodies the capacity to function as Gods only begotten son as well. But… not by following 'Jesus', but by walking as 'Jesus' walked…by walking AS the Father…as God's only begotten son, who is the "I am" within us!
'Jesus' of himself, had no being. He and the Father were One…as are you and I. (Only He knew it, whereas 'everyone else' has been led to believe we are the 'person' our parents created when they named us at our birth.) There is ONLY the Father (He who has seen me, has seen the Father) Thus is the Father Himself the only begotten son. There was not 'Jesus' AND the Father…there was only the Father! (There is not 'you' AND the Father, or me AND the Father…there is ONLY the Father!) Thus can I say without equivocation, the Father, and the 'only begotten son', are One and the same! And whoever should walk AS the Father, walks AS God's only begotten son, as did he who was known as 'Jesus'! There is no one other than the 'Father'! Each of us is in fact Gods only begotten son if we only knew it. Should we see this, and should we refuse to acknowledge Him as our reality and walk as He walked, we are as guilty of crucifying Him as were they who called for His crucifixion some 2000 years ago.
When 'Jesus' said 'He who has seen me, has seen the Father'… it was the 'Father' who said it! There is no one other than the Father! To make it more understandable let me put it this way. Every so-called 'human being' on Earth, is the Spirit of God, manifesting AS the FATHER! A 'human being' and the 'Father'…are One and the same! (There is neither Greek nor Jew, bond nor free, male nor female, for we are all One, and that ONE, is the Father…the "I am" within us!) As we function AS the Father, we take upon ourselves the 'likeness' of the Father. That likeness, is the Christ! When we walk AS the Father, we will be walking as we were meant to walk…as Gods only begotten sons and daughters!
