Arise My Love
Even his closest friends did not remember that he had spoken to them about his death and resurrection. Jesus said until them, “Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.” (John 2:19) HE SPOKE OF THE TEMPLE OF THIS BODY. (John 2:21) Jesus also said, “No man can take my life from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down and I have power to take it again.” (John 10:18)
The lesson title on Palm Sunday was, “Come and Follow Me.” I believe he was asking all of humanity to come and follow him through this journey on earth back into the kingdom of God here on earth. He was showing us the way back home to Oneness with our creator. By disciplining the lower nature, or personality, the body becomes a vessel for the use of the True Self. We are in training in this world to walk in the light of the Christ Self and to become fully aware of our Divinity, our Oneness with our Creator. “Oneness with our Creator” may be easy to say but hard, very hard to believe.
I believe Jesus came to teach us how to overcome
all disappointment, all pain, and all suffering in our life by overcoming
every difficulty we face. In life’s journey this overcoming
is the RESURRECTION POWER within each of us! How is this possible?
I believe part of the answer to that question is to become serious
about discovering the power within. Christ Jesus taught us that the
same power that was in his is within you and me. As Rev. Eric Butterworth
wrote in his book, “Discover the Power Within.” This is
exactly what the man Jesus did. The man that became the Christ said,
“I have overcome the world.” I have overcome all of its
pain, temptation, sickness, disease, disappointment, anger and poverty
consciousness. He overcame all things of this world, even death! He
said, “All things that I do you can do also and even greater
things than this shall you do.”
So where do we go from here? Follow the life of Jesus…listen to His teaching, not what you were told he taught or what the intellect says. “BE STILL AND KNOW.” Take time to listen to the heart and be patient; be alone with God in the Garden of the Heart. Feel the Divine calling you, “come walk with me and talk with me.”
For so long humanity has been taught all that we know comes to us from somewhere outside of ourselves. That is not what He taught, Jesus taught Oneness with God. “Seek first the kingdom of God and all things will be added until you.” Do you BELIEVE that Jesus spoke the TRUTH?
From the Heart with Love, Peace &
