Christ Jesus overcame the world by realizing His oneness with God, the Holy One of Israel, and His oneness with us – ‘the branches of the Tree of life’. Therefore, we, who are following Him in the regeneration, before we can also overcome this world must realize our oneness with Christ Jesus, the perfect substance out of which the infinite universe was created; also love our neighbor as our self, by realizing that they too are a branch of the one Tree of life, Christ Jesus, leaving no person out of Christhood. “If I be lifted up, I will draw all men to myself”, Christ declares eternally. That must also be your declaration.
The realization of our oneness with Christ Jesus closes the circuit of perfection, revealing Light, the one Tree of life, the kingdom of God, instead of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, this fleeting world of the five-sense mind where everybody is walking in darkness; where everybody is divided and walking in separation from his or her neighbor. Please remember this forever: Our Most Loving Father is Light without variableness neither shadow of turning. Your ignorance of this universal Truth makes the appearance of a lie; your ignorance of this Truth ushers in darkness (humanhood), which is a state of non-existence. Therefore, even as the Father has sent Christ Jesus, so are we also sent in the name of the Son to function as Christ Jesus; to function as the light of the world, in the realization that we are one with Christ Jesus the begotten Son of God.
However, without realizing our Most Loving Father as the only Presence and Power, and loving your neighbor as yourself by accepting everybody’s sonship, the gate to the 'Garden of Eden' is barred to you, and you come under the bondage to corruption and decrepitude, under the law of sowing and reaping. “Why is this so?” you might ask. The authority for that is found in the scripture, “For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.” There is no way you can leave off anybody from Christhood or Sonship without you being a castaway. “If I be lifted up, I will draw all men to myself’, must be your continuous state of consciousness as you behold your neighbor anywhere in the infinite universe. This is the narrow path; every other way is the broadway leading to humanhood and destruction. Conscious oneness with Christ Jesus is the narrow path. Your continuous awareness of yourself as Spirit and your neighbor as Spirit is the narrow path.
Through ignorance of ‘Omnipresence of Christ’, man creates a mental world of his own, a world of good and evil. Thus as a man sows, so shall he also reap. He sees the manifestation of his thoughts and reacts to them, the same way a crying baby might react to her shadow. Therefore, he eats the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. He appropriates the fruit thereof because he reacts to this world of illusion believing it true, not knowing it is but illusion, a fleeting shadow without substance. That is why he perishes in his ignorance of Christ the reality of individual being.
Now scripture reveals that the substance out of which your body has been created is Christ Jesus. Holy Spirit through brother Paul reveals, “and to make us see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created ALL things through Christ Jesus, to the extent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church (Anyone that has realized that Christ Jesus constitutes his being and his neighbor’s being) to the principalities and power in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:9,10.
Additionally, everything you see, all substances you are aware of, is only the same substance in a modified appearance, just another aspect of the same thing, both sides of the same coin. This can be likened to the principle of mathematics, wherein every form or appearance in the universe is represented in numbers from one to infinity (1…∞), then by multiplicity law, there is always a “One” at the foundation of every number within the range of infinity. In other words, when you multiply one with any number in infinity, the outcome is always that number, meaning that there is always a “One” there but not apparent to eyesight. The eyes see the different numbers and the different forms but not the seed, the core. That “One” is the seed, the essence that brought the form forth, regardless of what the number might appear within the spectrum of infinity or how the forms appear in time or space.
The “One” when we relate it to the forms in the universe, is Christ, the hope of our glory. This is the Mystery that has been hidden, which Holy Spirit reveals through brother Paul, “Christ in you, the hope of glory”. In Him, we live, move, and have our being. Therefore, everything has a perfect foundation, and perfection is your natural state of being; because it is your natural state, it is the only reality. Christ reminds us, “Be ye perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect”. In other words, accept the gift of God; accept Christ Jesus the Perfection of God made visible as the reality of your being.
However, until you are aware of this Perfection as your natural state of being; until you are aware of the divine Presence within you, the Father that goes before you to make the crooked places straight; until you are aware that Christ Jesus constitutes individual being, your being, and my being, perfection eludes you, and you are outside the kingdom of God. Your ability to behold this “One” (Christ) in every form that confronts you, and your willingness to realize oneness with this Light that ushers everyone into the world, the infinite Presence underlying all forms is to dwell in the kingdom of heaven here and now.
Moreover, every man has a heart, which is the spirit of man, the dwelling place of Christ Jesus. Therefore, the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh upon the heart, the eternal dwelling place of Christ Jesus. So the moment you sight and accept an appearance, away from the knowledge of the One-divine Presence, Christ Jesus, you are falsely separated from God. Any appearance of any nature is the barrier. Thus do not accept it, but see through it at the heart of it, where Christ dwells. Just come to the full realization that Christ Jesus being Omnipresent, the appearance cannot be there. The Allness of God excludes the existence of any appearance, unlike God. In doing this, you become co-creator with Elohim, the Holy One of Israel (Chukwu Okike Abiama).
However, if you do not recognize Christ the hope of our glory; if you do not receive impartation from Christ within, then you are dead – a walking corpse. That impartation is called the proceeding WORD. It flows forth like living water and becomes your flesh – spiritual flesh. “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water”. Take a seed put it on the table, what will happen to it? Nothing! It could stay there forever and will not grow. Why? Because it must come in contact with the soil, then from inside the earth it draws that which it needs. It is dead until it is put in its native element; until it is ‘oned’ with the earth, and then life within it, which is there all of the time, begins to come forth as a bud, tree, fruit or as a bush. In the same way, Man as a seed is dead, unless man is consciously at one with his Substance, the Word of God, Christ Jesus, he remains impotent; until man is in union with the Proceeding Word of God, which is Life, he cannot reproduce; he cannot procreate and multiply and fill the earth; he is cut off and withers. If that Word, the Life in the seed is not lived by, is not acknowledged; if that Word is not accepted in consciousness as your very Life, you do not see life.
The whole message of the Bible is to teach us how to realize ‘conscious oneness’ with our Most Loving Father, to reveal Christ the hope of glory as the Substance of individual being; to free us from the prison of belief in a physical body into an acceptance of our freedom in a spiritual body; to guide us out of limited human sense of life into the very consciousness of God. Therefore, let us go within and discover that Light which ‘lighted every man who cometh into the world’. It is here now and always. We need to still our mind to hear the symphony of heaven – the ‘still small’ voice that melts the earth, revealing the kingdom of heaven here and now.
In my conscious oneness with my Most Loving Father, I am the One Life, the Life of Christ; I live, move, and have my being in God, in Immortality. This must be your steady-state of consciousness. It is the revelation of the ages by Holy Spirit through brother Paul. So as we follow Jesus Christ in the regeneration, our sole function is not to divide the One Life of God into separate bodies, into man, woman, child, animal, or tree, but to wear the seamless garment of Christ Jesus, the indivisible garment of immortality, in which there is no division, no space, no time but ‘Oneness’.
You are Spirit, the offspring of God. ‘All that the Father is, thou art. All that the Father hath is thine’. You must be aware of this oneness with the Holy One of Israel before you can abide in the secret place of the Almighty, in the Glorious cloud, the Christ body. ‘Conscious oneness’ with our Most Loving Father is the secret place of the Almighty. At the last supper, Christ assures us, “eat my flesh and drink my blood”. We eat His flesh when we acknowledge that we are Spirit; when we accept His Immortal, transfigured body as our body. We drink His blood when we accept His Life as our life. However, in the human scene, we believe that the organs function our body; that blood is the vehicle for life.
Nevertheless, in our Spiritual life, we ignore all medical assumptions and all universal believes about the imitation life, by realizing that Christ is the animating principle of our being; that Christ is the Life of our being and the infinite universe. In doing this, you are re-grafted back into the Tree of Life, fulfilling the universal promise of Christ, “On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” in our oneness with Christ Jesus is our Most Loving Father glorified, that you bear much fruit. John 15:8
The Love of God through Christ Jesus our Lord be with you. Amen!
“If I be lifted up, I will draw all men to myself”, Christ declares eternally. John 12:32
