Ascended Master Jesus, April 6, 2007 through Kim Michaels.
Wherefore I say unto you, all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. (Mt 12:31-32)
So, my beloved, I, Jesus, am indeed also on the sixth ray of service. So I wanted to put in my two cents worth, as they say. For you see, what is true service to life? It is when you serve ALL life. And what does it mean to serve all life? Well, there is only one way to serve all life, and that is to flow with the Holy Spirit, which is precisely that force of God, that aspect of God, that is designed to accelerate all life so that all life becomes MORE.
Even though my words were ominous, given 2,000 years ago, they were designed that way because of the consciousness at the time. Where people were still so stuck in precisely what Nada identified as the false desire to serve the remote God, thinking it was the angry, judgmental being in the sky that they were serving through their religious activity. So here you have the scribes and the Pharisees strutting around like peacocks – feeling that they were holier than everybody else in Israel – serving God. Yet, in reality they were serving the false God. And that is precisely why I said that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no wise enter the kingdom (Matthew 5:20).
And why is this so? It is so because the scribes and Pharisees were trapped in the duality consciousness, and they saw themselves as separated from God. Because when you see God as the remote God, you obviously see God as being outside yourself and you as being outside of God. How can you possibly enter the kingdom of God, which is where?… [audience answers: “Within you.”] Within you. We will eventually get you to understand this, so that if I woke you up at four o’clock in the morning and said, “Where is the kingdom of God?” you would say “Within me.”
The illusion of serving the remote God
My Beloved, joking aside, this is the most serious matter you could possibly have to contemplate. For you see, ninety percent or more of the religious people on this planet are trapped in the illusion that what they are doing is serving God. But they are serving the remote God, they are trying to please the remote God, they are thinking that if they do outer things, in an outer religious activity, then the outer God will let them into the outer kingdom. And it is truly the broad way that leads to destruction—it simply cannot be done.
When you are trapped in that duality consciousness, you are trapped in the ego’s belief that if it does all the outer things right, then God will have to let it into the kingdom. This is such an integral illusion that the ego will never be able to see it as a fallacy. This is precisely why we have given you the teaching that there is a part of you, the Conscious You that is more than the ego and that can separate itself from the ego.
As long as you identify with the ego, you will not be willing to come up higher, to become MORE. Because you want to cling to the illusion that as long as you stay in this outer Church – and do these activities that you have decided will get you to heaven – then God will have to accept you. And the ego will not let go of this illusion, because it knows that if you were to see through this illusion, then you would no longer need the ego and the ego would die. So the ego believes that it is a matter of life and death to make you cling to this illusion. And as long as you identify with the ego, you too think it is a matter of life and death or a matter of salvation or damnation—the difference between going to heaven or going to hell.
I am not saying that the scribes and the Pharisees were evil people. I did not call them evil; I called them hypocrites because they thought they were serving God, and they were not willing to recognize the reality that they were not serving God—or rather they were not serving the Living God who is in all. This is the reality that I came to demonstrate to them through words and deeds and even by my Presence. They would have none of it, for they were not willing to let go of their egos. They were not willing to let that mortal self die on the cross, so they could be reborn. That is why Nicodemus could not understand me when I said that unless a man be born of water and of spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom (John 3:3).
