Ascended Master Jesus, August 24, 2008 through Kim Michaels.
In the peace of Christ you are, as I, Jesus, manifest my Presence with each one of you, wherever you are around this planet. For truly, I am everywhere in the consciousness of God. And as you come together in the Spirit of Oneness, you too are in the consciousness of God. And thus, you earn my Presence with you—each one of you, as you are willing to receive me, and as you are able and willing to step outside of your normal sense of consciousness, your normal sense of identity, and indeed accept my Presence with you, instead of affirming the idol, the graven image of Christ as the remote being in the sky, or as the one hanging up there on the cross at the end of the Church.
Truly, it was never my intention, that people should see me so remote from themselves. Those who wanted to distort the true message of Christ were very clever in putting the crucified Christ up on a cross in most Christian churches, in order to give people an image of Christ as the one bleeding and suffering on the cross, so that people would not identify with me. For surely, who would want to share the fate of being crucified and hanging, bleeding on a cross with a crown of thorns on his head, having spikes through his arms and legs?
Can you see, my beloved, that this was a deliberate ploy to make the image of Christ associated with bloodshed and suffering? And therefore, also send the subconscious message, “Do not dare to manifest your personal Christhood, or this is what will happen to you!” Yet, we have reached a cycle in earth’s history where this old-fashioned, dualistic, fear-based image of Christ has had its day. For indeed, 10,000 people will rise up and dethrone it. And millions more will refuse to be ensnared by it, and will indeed dare to consider the true meaning of my words, “The kingdom of God is within you.”
