There are many people who trod the path of Christianity today thinking that by professing to be Christians they have understanding of the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. It gets worse when their leaders are no better. They forget that in the search of the heavenly kingdom, righteousness and diligence are cardinal virtues. Because they cannot teach the people what they themselves lack, they cover up their vulnerability by occupying the airwaves with long sermons, spurious philosophies, wanton motivational talks, and debased miracles and prophecies. They chastise and contradict themselves and are unable to teach the people aspects of the Christian mysteries.
Over 2,000 years ago, Jesus, the most qualified spiritual person was born of worthy parents called Holy Mary and Joseph - very spiritual people who took up the responsibility to give birth to Jesus for the sake of the world. Jesus was given an immaculate birth whose explanation is not as simple as the unenlightened Christian explains it. Generally, it is nature’s law that a spirit takes up embodiment and functions in the world that it qualifies. Period! Thus a human being cannot give birth to an angel and vice versa. Similarly, an animal remains an animal and cannot bear a human being or a plant. Simply put, spirits (and in embodiments) have features of the life waves to which they belong and progressively function accordingly. At the time of His birth the man Jesus is JESUS. He belongs to the life wave of spirits in physical embodiment, collectively called human beings. In other words, He belongs to the human race but He is not an ordinary sinful person like those of us today. He has perfected Himself just as He exalted us in Matthew 5: 48 thus, Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. He attained that perfection but for our sake has to take up physical embodiment for one great purpose – to be used as the vehicle for the Christ Spirit to have access to the Earth Planet and transform it and its inhabitants. Who among us today will voluntarily decide to give up his life for the sake of others including those who will beat him, mock him, spit upon him, humiliate him and for the worst, kill him? And that, after killing him, he will continue to suffer for millennia until the very people who crucified him are finally redeemed from their sins? Who could do that? No wonder Jesus deserves our praise.
Generally, the home of human beings is Earth. But the Christ does not belong to the human race and cannot be born by any human being. Matthew 23:41-46 tells us thus, While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he ? They say unto him, The son of David. He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions. He is the second aspect of the God of our solar system and has His Home on the Sun as a Great Living Spirit. Matthew16:16 says, And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. Verse 20 reads Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ. When this Earth Planet was doomed again and was to suffer a second destruction as a result of the wickedness, greed and above all, materiality of earthlings, the Christ voluntarily decided to come down from His Home and save the planet by being (temporarily) the indwelling Spirit of the Earth – to guide it from within and imbue its beings with the essence of Love, Service and Godliness. The Christ took the body of Beloved Jesus and dwelt among men for the three years of His Mission. This wondrous event took place at the time of the Baptism. Mark 1:10 reads, And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him. Please note that this is not spiritism or possession as some unknowing people may think. The event was voluntary, purposely planned and manifested in accord with the great beings involved. Through Jesus, Christ established a link of all the vehicles that connect man to God and as such, understands our infirmities whilst we dwell in the flesh. Whereas the primary work of Beloved Jesus was accomplished on Golgotha, for Christ it is the beginning of the annual sacrifice from the Sun to the Earth until the day of liberation – when a sufficient number of earthlings would have developed the long awaited spiritual body through Forgiveness, Love and Service. The transformation of the Earth by fire will come and those who have developed the Christ Love would fly in their spiritual body to meet Him. Those who have not developed that spiritual body cannot meet him no matter how they call themselves and are recognized as such in the world. The development of that airy body is what Christianity is about - to be born again. John 3:3-12 clarifies thus, Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born ? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
From the preceding points, it can be seen that Jesus Christ more or less refers to a composite being. After the baptism, the man Jesus became Jesus Christ - a composite being. It is worth knowing what happened to the Spirit of Jesus after he gave his body to the Christ for the three years mission. This is because it is a natural law that no two spirits can occupy and use one body at the same time. This will be treated by the author at a later time. It is however, known that the airy body of Jesus as characterized in the Resurrection Story manifested and lived among men for some time before departure to the next body of the Earth Planet from where he functions even in the affairs of the world today till the day of liberation. He will return but not in physical embodiment again.
Even as this clarification is made it is only for the purpose of teaching people about aspects of the Christian Faith and to promote spiritual discourse. It is not to disregard any faith, religion or practice.
