Ascended Master Jesus, July 25, 2004 through Kim Michaels.
I now say to the false pastors, standing in their Christian churches on this Sunday – standing in their pulpits, feeling holier than thou, feeling that they are the true representatives of Christ and that they are teaching the true gospel of Christ – I now say to you, “I know you not, because you have denied my Living Presence within yourselves and within the flocks that sit in their pulpits, being the blind followers of the blind leaders, those heading for the ditch, the ditch of hell, the consciousness of hell, which is the denial of Christ. I know you not! But I would want to know you—if you would wake up and stop denying the Presence of the Living Christ within yourselves.”
Therefore I say, “Wake up and choose Christ! Choose the life of Christ, which is the only source of life there is. Because truly, no one comes to the Father without going through the Christ flame within their hearts.” I now say to all those Christians who believe the Bible is the Living Word, the true word of God. If that is what you believe, then read the Bible. Remember when I was challenged by the Jews, and they called me a blasphemer because I said I was the Son of God? And I referred to the Old Testament scripture, where it says, “Ye are Gods!”
Heed my words then, in the scriptures that you call infallible, and heed the one sentence in the New Testament that is more important than any other sentence. It is this: “The kingdom of God is within you!” I did not tell my followers to go looking for the kingdom of God in a Jewish Temple. I did not tell them to go to Rome, which at that time was the center of the universe. I did not tell them to go to Timbuktu, the Himalayas or anywhere else. I said, “The kingdom of God is within you.”
So if you want to find the kingdom of God, why would you look outside yourselves? Why would you look in a Christian Church? Why would you look in a Christian doctrine? Why would you even look in the Bible? Do you think the inner kingdom of God is in the Bible? No! The inner kingdom is within you, in your heart, in your heart flame, because on the altar of your heart burns the Living Flame of Christ. For many of the people in the world, that Christ flame has gone out. But it can be rekindled, because I am here! And I have been with humankind for these past 2,000 years, offering anyone who is willing, the body and blood of Christ that will rekindle the Christ flame within your hearts.
You have denied me for 2,000 years, when I came to you over and over again as the still small voice in your hearts. You have ignored that voice. You have said, “It is impossible that Jesus Christ could tell me something in my heart that is contrary to the outer scripture and the outer doctrine.” Wake up and realize that this is precisely what the scribes, the Pharisees, the lawyers and the temple priests said to the Jews 2,000 years ago. And I came to dispel that lie, that you need an outer organization or an outer priesthood in order to reach God.
The kingdom of God is within you! If you think you need someone outside yourself in order to reach God, then you are truly following the way that seems right unto a man, but the ends thereof are the ways of death. Because that path can never lead you to the true kingdom of God.
