The 'man' who was known as Shakespeare, had it right when he wrote "All the World's a stage, and every man's an actor". Every 'man' on Earth, is God individualized, but virtually no one believes this amazing truth. At our birth, we are given a name and made to believe that 'that', is who we are. Every 'human' child that has ever been born on Planet Earth, has been (and still is) God, the Father, in the infant stage of development. But virtually no one believes that, in spite of the fact that virtually every 'Christian' on Earth will acknowledge that God made 'man' (male and female), in His image and likeness. And these same people believe that the Bible is the undisputed word of God! My wife is a graduate of one of Canada's largest Theological Educational Institutes! (As fine a person, as you will ever meet!) Yet she vehemently believes that God did not make man a 'God'. And that Adam's sin denied us from living in that glorious state of being!
I have told her that it is the teaching of the religious organizations of the World that has denied us our rightful 'inheritance'! We have been denied our right to walk As God, only because of the concept of the Spiritual Rebirth as promoted by every Evangelical Organization on Earth! Through their concept of the Spiritual Rebirth, it is IMPOSSIBLE to walk AS 'Jesus' walked! I think their concept evolved through the belief that the Virgin Mary gave birth to 'Jesus of Nazareth' in a manger in Bethlehem some 2000 years ago. But it was not 'Jesus' she gave birth to! She gave birth to God (the Father) in the infant stage of development! And as directed by the Holy Spirit, she was told to name Him 'Jesus'! The Virgin Birth did not take place in Mary's womb! It took place in her consciousness! She experienced the Spiritual Rebirth, when the 'Holy Ghost' (the Truth) 'came upon her'. She saw (spiritually speaking) that God was the reality of ALL humanity, and that every child born of a woman, was God in the infant stage of development! It was this she taught her son from the cradle! It was this that inspired Him to walk AS the Father. Through His faith in this Truth, He healed the sick, turned water into wine, made the blind to see, raised the dead, fed the multitudes, rose from the tomb and transcended! And told us that what we saw Him do, we could do! But ONLY if we should be 'born again'! Born of 'water' (of the Truth) and of the Spirit; and 'except we believe' that God is our reality, (except we be 'born again') we cannot 'enter' the Kingdom of God (we cannot attain an awareness of Oneness)! And this 'water', (this Truth) is the realization that God is the "I" within us! Only this truth and the acceptance of it can result in the realization that brings about our Spiritual Rebirth! By no other means can we be 'born again'! And then, through faith in our belief that God (the Father) is our reality, (our true identity) we 'can do' the things that Jesus did! AS GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. No longer will our faith lie in a God 'outside' of ourselves. Now our faith will lie in our realization that God IS THE "I" WITHIN US! In this 'consciousness', 'Jesus' became the most famous individual to have ever walked the Earth! And did He not say that should we walk as he walked that we might do even greater things?
Then, no longer will we function in the illusion of being the person our parents created when they named us.
Then will we function AS the Father... (as the "I" within us!) AS WE WERE MEANT TO FUNCTION! For there is not God AND us, there is only God! When we realize that God is the "I" within us, we begin to take upon ourselves the likeness of the Father. That 'likeness', IS THE CHRIST! For the Christ is not a specific individual, the Christ is no more or no less than The Father personified! He is the "I" within every man/woman on Planet earth! It was this that God tried to get His disciples and humanity to see. He did not 'come to Earth', to take upon Himself our sins and die in our stead, He came to show us what manner of beings we are; to show us that man and God are One! But no one got the message! So now we have some six or seven billion individuals on Planet Earth whom all believe they have 'being' separate and apart from their Source (from God). Resulting in the World we have today. And except we choose to 'die to self', and function in our "I am that I am" identity, we are destined to self-destruct. The Spirit of God individualized, is what a 'man' is. (Matthew 10: 20) We only 'think' we have being as the person our parents created when they named us at our birth. Only when we realize that we are all One, and that God (the Father) is that One, will there be Peace on Earth!
