We will only see the Second Coming of Christ, when we see (spiritually speaking) that God (the Father) is the "I" within us! When we see that this has to be the truth, we will begin to take upon ourselves (automatically) the likeness of God (the Father). It is that 'likeness' that is the Christ! If we are looking for the return of "Jesus', we wait in vain. There is no one besides or other than the Father! Every child that has ever been born on Planet Earth (or that ever will be born on Planet Earth) is God (the Father) in the infant stage of development! Mary and Joseph were instructed to call Him (their child) 'Jesus'. My Mother named Him (me) Robert. My wife's Mother and Father named her (Him) 'Bertha', and so on. There never has been anyone other than the Father. God made us in His image and likeness in the same manner as a Vine gives being to itself, as it becomes the branch. God (the Father) is neither male nor female. The Father is simply Creative Consciousness individualized. Consciousness that has the capacity to function as an individual, be that Individual the Universal Mind or an individualized manifestation of that mind (man). And when we come to see that It has to be what each of us is, we begin to function AS It (as the Father)! The Holy Spirit, is the Spirit of God, and the Spirit of God personified, is the Christ. The 'three', are One! Nothing has 'being' other than the Spirit of God. This is why Jesus said in Matthew 10:20, When ye speak, it is the Spirit of your Father that speaketh within you. When we think, it is actually the Spirit of God that thinks. Not knowing this, we think and create AS we perceive ourselves to be (As the person our parents created when they named us) Thus the necessity of the Spiritual rebirth, which can only come about through the realization that God is the real you and the real me! (When we realize that God is the "I" within us!)
It was not 'Jesus' that transcended in Acts 1:9. It was the Father who transcended, while every one there; thought it was the 'man' they knew as Jesus who transcended into the heavens. ONLY as we function AS the Father, can we experience the transfiguration and the ascension. Only as Spiritual beings can we enter the Kingdom of God for as beings of flesh and blood, we cannot 'enter'! The Kingdom of God, is a state of mind. A state of knowing that God is the "I" within us! Our bodies are but His living temples! When we see Christ, it will not be 'Jesus' that we will be looking at. We will be looking at the Father! There is ONLY the Father. As He said to Phillip "He who hath seen me, hath seen the Father". As I have said previously, the Father, is the reality of every 'man/woman' on the Planet! The Father, is synonymous with humanity! This is why he said 'whatsoever you do unto the least of these, ye do it unto me'. As I said, we will only see the 'second' coming of Christ, when another 'man/woman' sees (spiritually speaking) that the "I" within them IS THE FATHER! It is unlikely that there will ever be another who will do 'greater things than He did', but there will be those who know that it would not be impossible, for it was He who said that greater things were possible. But such a one would have to be made to see that man and God were One from their Mothers knee (As Jesus did). Here is where Proverbs 22:6 has great significance. 'Train up a child in the way that he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it'!
