Ascended Master Mother Mary, June 1, 2004 through Kim Michaels.
If you will take time to ponder the teachings I have given you in the previous discourses, you will see that the true goal of the ascended masters is to bring God’s kingdom to earth. You will also see that in reality God’s kingdom is a state of consciousness. Therefore, for God’s kingdom to be manifest on earth, a critical mass of human beings in embodiment must change their state of consciousness and embrace a new sense of identity, a sense of identity that is not based on separation and division but on indivisible oneness with their God. This has been the goal of the ascended masters for eons. This is the only message that has been given through all of the true religions found on this planet, and there are indeed many true religions. There is only one message behind all religion, and it is the message of oneness, the message that you are one with your God and that the sense of separation is an illusion.
I am aware that there are many people on this earth who will not be able to understand or accept this message of oneness. They will reject it, and through the relative faculties of the lower mind and the human intellect, they will come up with innumerable clever and sophisticated arguments for doubting the message of oneness. You can find these arguments broadcast through the institutions of society, such as governments and educational institutions. You can find them broadcast through the media. And you can even find them broadcast through many religions that have departed from their original Gospel of Oneness and are now preaching a Gospel of Separation.
If you care to look at the historical record, you will see that the early followers of my son Jesus were not called Christians. They were called “Followers of the Way” because Jesus truly came to teach all people the true way to oneness with their God. When Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6), he was not referring to his outer person or to an outer Christian Church. He was saying that the way to salvation is the way to oneness with your God, and without establishing oneness with your God, you cannot come to your Father and enter the kingdom of your God. And of course, the key to oneness with your God is the Christ consciousness that Jesus embodied and to this day represents to humankind. Therefore, to come into that oneness, you do go through the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
If you will make the effort to stretch your mind and heart and ponder this message, you will see the underlying logic, the underlying truth. God created everything that was created and without him was not anything made that was made (John 1:3). You need to be saved because you have departed from your God, meaning that you have departed from oneness with your God. So how could you possibly be saved and return to your Father’s kingdom, except by reclaiming your true sense of identity, your sense of oneness with your God? There is no other way to God but to reclaim your sense of oneness with your God by allowing the Presence of Oneness to be in you.
This then is the message of oneness, the Gospel of Oneness, the religion of oneness that is the one true religion. Throughout the ages, this message and gospel has been preached through many different religions, and it is still being preached through several religions. Yet throughout the ages, we have seen the same pattern, namely that a new religion was started by a person who had dared to reclaim his or her oneness with God. Therefore, that person became the open door for preaching the Gospel of Oneness to a specific group of people.
Yet when the original founder was no longer in the material realm, the religion slowly started disintegrating, and after a period of time the Gospel of Oneness was lost. In many cases, as is certainly the case with my son Jesus, the original founder was elevated to the status of an idol and seen as the only one who could reclaim his or her oneness with God. Therefore, what started out as a true religion, preaching the Gospel of Oneness, was gradually turned into a false religion, preaching the Gospel of Separation. This then is the false gospel that has been present on this planet since Lucifer and his followers first descended to the material realm.
My Beloved hearts, it is time to see through the false message and abandon the false gospel, the gospel that is often disguised as the “only true religion” yet is truly a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It is time to stop following the blind leaders, the false prophets, who are posturing as true leaders but are inwardly like ravening wolves (Matthew 7:15). It is time to stop following those who are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones (Matthew 23:27).
It is time to rise above the lies and the manipulations of the forces who have chosen to separate themselves from their God and who have become trapped in that consciousness of separation. It is time for you to stop worshiping the false gods who are clamoring for your attention by every means conceivable. It is time for you to stop playing around in the sandbox, building your elaborate castles that will crumble when the Living Waters of the Holy Spirit come to wash them away. It is time to climb the rock of Christ and anchor yourself firmly on the true way that leads to Christ consciousness, the consciousness that empowers you to see and to claim your oneness with your God, as Jesus did indeed claim that oneness.
It is time to realize that life on planet earth is currently a contest, a game, and that the prize is your soul. The prince of this world is constantly trying to tempt you, in numerous subtle and clever ways, to deny your oneness with your God. And we of the ascended masters are constantly seeking to help you reclaim that oneness. As long as you continue to deny your oneness with your God – no matter how important your reasoning might seem to your outer mind – the Devil holds your soul captive in the consciousness of hell. You are worshiping a false god who is not the One God behind all appearances but is simply one of the appearances. Yet the moment you fully abandon that denial and accept your oneness with the One God, the Conscious You will be in the consciousness of the kingdom of heaven.
