Ascended Master Jesus, July 26, 2004 through Kim Michaels.
This is what has been misunderstood by the people who were caught in the duality consciousness. They created a Christian religion that they see as being separated from other religions, being better than other religions, being the only true religion, being the only road to salvation.
My disciples were called “The Followers of The Way.” And you remember my statement, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father save by me.” Again, the duality consciousness interprets that to mean that no one comes to God without going through Jesus Christ. But the true statement is that no one comes to the Father save by going through the Christ consciousness that I am. And the Christ consciousness is what allows you to say, “I and my Father are one,” because you are now being one with your God, instead of seeing yourself as separated from that God.
That is what I called my disciples to manifest. That state of oneness with God. They could not maintain it. But a few of them did maintain it for a long time, and some of the gnostic groups continued it for centuries. But orthodox Christianity, the organized Church never had it, never understood it because they followed the example of Peter, who denied his oneness with me, and thereby denied the oneness between the disciple and master that is the true fulfillment of the master-disciple relationship, whereby the disciple becomes the master below as the master is the Christ Above.
The kingdom of God is within you, and it will not suddenly drop from the sky, as many Christians believe. It will come from within you, when you allow it to flow through you. And therefore, I ask you to first of all start with yourself. Go within. Do everything you can, use all the tools, the books and teachings that we have given, to establish that oneness, that sense of Being. And then, when you feel you have reached a sufficient level of it, dare to express it.
Dare to let your light shine before men, because truly a city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. And I say: “Do you think it is your light that you are hiding?” And then realize: “I of mine own self can do nothing.” Well then, if it is God’s light within you, is it your light to hide? If God gives you his light, what gives you the right to slip into the duality consciousness and say, “Oh, I have to hide it, or someone might get upset, someone might be uncomfortable.”
So I ask you again, if you feel that way – and I understand that you all go through a period of fearing to let your light shine – but then work on it. Work on it with the oneness of purpose, and come to that point where it naturally flows, and you don’t care about what the world thinks. Because you know that the consciousness of anti-christ will oppose anything you do for God, will always oppose the Light of God, as they opposed me 2,000 years ago. You come to that point of inner oneness, where you say: “I am who I am, and I am just going to be who I am, and come what may.”
At that moment, you will have the total defense, which is the total transparency, because the prince of this world comes and has nothing in you, whereby he can manipulate you to turn off your light, the light of your I AM Presence shining through you. So I leave you with this last image. Your I AM Presence is a sun. The sun constantly shines. It is designed by God to radiate light. Let it shine through you. And then light up this world.
In the name of the Father, the Mother, the Son and the Holy Spirit, I seal you in the infinite love and protection of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is finished! Amen.
