Persecution is part of the path to Christhood

Ascended Master Jesus, March 30, 2013 through Kim Michaels.

 

This is a parallel to what all of you experience when you are in physical embodiment and when you begin to approach your Christhood. It will not, of course, take the same physical form where you will also be nailed to a cross made of wood. It will take some form or other, perhaps not even physical. Perhaps you will be persecuted and crucified in the emotional realm, the mental realm or the identity realm. 

There will be some persecution even in the physical. It is simply part of the deal, my beloved, when you volunteer to embody on earth. It has always been so since the fall of this planet and the first fallen beings embodying here for they will attack those who are the Holy Innocents. They will attack those who are the lightbringers, those who dare let their light so shine before men, those who will not hide it beneath the conditions defined by the fallen beings. 

These fallen beings form a force on this earth, and in their blindness – their spiritual blindness – they have such spiritual pride and arrogance that they believe they control life. They believe that they can shut out the Christ and the Christ light from this planet. I came 2,000 years ago to prove them wrong, and I did prove them wrong for there was a group of fallen beings that was taken out of embodiment back then, and they will never again embody here. 

A monumental shift in consciousness

You may look at Christianity as it has unfolded over the past 2,000 years and you may see that it has not produced millions of people with the same level of Christ consciousness. You may think that even though the fallen beings could not kill me by killing my body, they have still killed my example, they have killed the Church, the religion that claims to represent me. 

I tell you, it is not so for there are still the 10,000 and the millions more who are ready to manifest Christhood in this embodiment and they are coming ever closer. Some have found the teachings we have given through this and other messengers. Some have known from within or even through a teaching not given directly by the ascended masters. 

People are beginning to awaken and realize that we are standing before a monumental shift in consciousness on this planet and that they have a role in it. In order to fulfill that role, they need to transcend that sense of self, they need to transcend themselves, their former limitations and conditions.
