Ascended Master Mother Mary, April 2, 2005 through Kim Michaels.
Consider why Jesus called the scribes and the Pharisees hypocrites and why it was precisely these people who attempted to silence him by killing his physical body. The reason is simple. These people did not want the truth. They were afraid of the truth. They wanted a Messiah, but they wanted that Messiah to conform to the outer doctrines of their religion. And yet the Messiah is sent by God to set them free from their illusions, so if their doctrines are out of alignment with the truth of God, then what is the Messiah to do? Is he to give them the truth or is he to conform to their doctrines and thus keep them trapped in error and illusion?
You see, my beloved, Jesus did not want to compromise the truth and that is why he challenged the scribes and the Pharisees and the lawyers who had taken away the key of knowledge, the key of knowledge that the kingdom of God is within you and that the key to salvation is not an outer religion but to go within and obtain a higher state of consciousness. Precisely because Jesus did what he was sent by God to do, namely challenge people’s illusions, he was persecuted or ignored. And in the end he was condemned to death and crucified.
This is the tragedy of the ages, that those who are trapped in illusion are in a catch-22, where their beliefs are lies, yet they have been programmed with a fear of questioning the lies that they have come to believe. Their fear prevents them from questioning the lies, and if they are not willing to question the lies, how can they possibly receive the truth that will set them free from those lies? And thus people are in a catch-22 from which even a representative of God, even the Son of God sent into embodiment, even the Word made flesh, cannot awaken them—unless they have ears to hear a truth that goes beyond the outer doctrine that keeps them trapped in illusion.
