When Jesus said to Phillip, "He who hath seen me, hath seen the Father", He meant exactly that! "I and my Father (my Source), are One". He actually meant that every man/woman on the Planet, is the Spirit of God manifesting in a physical form! Literally! Man and God, are One and the same! One is the Universal I am, and the other is the Universal I am individualized! God is the Vine and 'men' are the branches. There is not the Father, AND us… the Father is us! But…His disciples, as well as every one who has ever read the Bible, believed He was referring to 'Himself', and not to the 'Spirit of God' (or the Universal I am) that is the reality of everyone on the face of the Earth.
God made man in His image and likeness, by 'becoming' man. They were One and the same, but 'Adam' did not know that He and God were One and the same. God just told him not to 'eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, else he would surely die'. To believe there is good and evil is to deny the Omnipresence of God. Adam was a creative being because he was God embodied. So too are we for the same reason, and for us to deny the Omnipresence of God, is to deny ourselves Gods Eternal Reality. When 'Adam' spoke, it was the Spirit of God that spoke. (Read Matthew 10:20) And when Jesus spoke, we also know that it was the Spirit of God that spoke, for He said, "I and my Father are One". (This also applies to us, for it is the "I" within us that thinks when we think and speaks when we speak.)
Imagine if 'Adam' had made that statement to Phillip. Might the disciples have realized then that man was God embodied? They just might have realized that God was their reality as well! As it was… all they could see was the 'human being' they knew as "Jesus of Nazareth"! They had no idea that God (the Father) was the reality of every 'man/woman' on Earth No matter who we are looking at; we are actually looking at the Father! Believe it or not! Man and God are One…One and the same! The greatest hoax that has ever been perpetrated on humankind, is the belief that 'men' are mere 'human beings'! But men can only think and function AS God AFTER they realize that God is the "I" within them…AFTER the 'Spiritual Rebirth'!
How can the Religions of the World continue to justify their concept of the Spiritual Rebirth?
