Ascended Master Elohim Heros and Amora, January 2, 2009, through Kim Michaels.
But the reality of the spiritual path is that you gradually move towards the point, where you can do what Jesus did on the cross—where he suddenly saw in a flash that even though he had attained a high degree of Christhood in that embodiment, he had retained certain expectations of how things should unfold. And those expectations kept him tied to the earth. And then, he decided – in that final act of surrender – to give up the ghosts of the past. And that was why he was resurrected.
Had he not given up the ghosts on the cross, my beloved, what do you think would have happened? He would have had to re-embody to again outlive those ghosts until he was willing to question the way he looked at the world and realize that it was unreality.
And so, there are those who think that Jesus was God or the Son of God from the beginning and that his victory and ascension were guaranteed. But nothing can be guaranteed in the world of free will. And Jesus could have refused – on the cross – to give up those ghosts and therefore not become Jesus the Christ. But once again, we refer to what some people called Jesus the carpenter, although truth be told, Jesus was never a carpenter in that embodiment.
