Ascend Master Jesus, April 8, 2007 through Kim Michaels.
And my beloved, what is the Christ mind? Well, it is what the Bible calls the WORD, but it is more than the WORD. So let me now read to you the beginning of the Gospel of John as it appears in the official scriptures:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
My Beloved, this official version of the scripture is indeed the version that was meant to be released for the multitudes in the Piscean age. But if you will read carefully, you will see that it embodies a certain room for interpretation, a certain duality, a certain uncertainty. And this is indeed by design, for it gave humankind a specific test. And that test was the essential test of the Piscean age. And I shall return to what that test is in a moment.
But what I want you to ponder here is that the very formulation of the beginning of the Gospel of John has given the official Christian churches a justification for putting me on a pedestal, making it seem like the outer, the historical, person of Jesus is synonymous with the WORD, is synonymous with God, is synonymous with the WORD incarnate, the WORD made flesh. For indeed, the Gospel of John talks about the WORD and talks about the WORD as if it was a person, calling the WORD “he.”
This is what has allowed the Christian churches to focus on the outer person, the historical person, rather than seeing that there is a deeper meaning behind it. And certainly, there are other statements that I made deliberately to give them the test of whether they would look only at the literal, surface interpretation or whether they would go beyond it and realize the true inner message that I came to bring.
Some of you will know that what in the Bible is called the WORD is a translation into English of a Greek word that could more correctly be translated as “LOGOS.” And what is the LOGOS? Well, it has different interpretations. But no matter which interpretation you go by, it is very clear that the LOGOS is far more than one single person. You cannot confine the LOGOS to a single person. But because the “Word” did not have the same interpretations, it has been possible for the churches to interpret the Word in such a way that it seemed to be only one person who ever had been and ever could be the Word incarnate.
So let me now reread the gospel of John with a different translation:
In the beginning was the LOGOS. And the LOGOS was with God and the LOGOS was God. The LOGOS was in the beginning with God. All things were made by the LOGOS and without the LOGOS was not anything made that was made. In the LOGOS was life and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness and the darkness comprended it not.
The LOGOS was the true light which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. The LOGOS was in the world and the world was made by the LOGOS and the world knew not the LOGOS. The LOGOS came unto its own and its own received it not. But as many as received the LOGOS to them gave the LOGOS power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on the LOGOS.
When you see this particular translation, and when you understand that the LOGOS is far more than one person, you can see that the deeper meaning of the gospel of John is that there is something beyond this world, something beyond the dualistic mind. And that is, truly, what is meant by the WORD, by the LOGOS.
This is something that cannot possibly be confined to one person. For is it not clearly said that without him, or without the LOGOS, was not anything made that was made? Well, how else can that be interpreted than saying that the LOGOS is in everything. For if nothing was made without the LOGOS, how could anything be separated from the LOGOS?
The LOGOS is in the world, and the true meaning is that the world comprehends not the LOGOS, because the world does not see that it is made out of the LOGOS and that the LOGOS is inside every human being, and indeed everything that was made. The true meaning is that I did not come to this earth to be raised up and glorified beyond all human beings. I came to exemplify the inner oneness with your own source, with the LOGOS, and thus help all people discover the LOGOS in themselves.
