Can you now see that “the Son,” “The Only Begotten Son, “The Way,” “the Truth,” “The Life,” “the Door” and “the Open door” are all the same thing – CHRIST? Can you see that when Jesus said “I am these things” it was THE CHRIST speaking through him? Can you see how this perspective might change some things with regard to what many people think about “salvation”?
Recognizing that Jesus manifested the Christ and was resurrected after death doesn’t “save you.” Save you FROM what? Save you TO what? By believing that Jesus was the Christ in manifestation, and that he was crucified and rose again from the dead, gives you an OPPORTUNITY TO AWAKEN from your sleep of death and RECONNECT TO THE SPIRIT so that you can BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY through your own heart and there experience THE CHRIST unto the manifestation of Christ in you!
That IS “your hope of glory,” you know – Christ in you! In other words; if you’ve made a heart connection with Jesus but have not connected with the CHRIST IN YOU (that “higher” you), you will not make much progress in Christ. Frankly, the lowest sub-planes of the 4th dimension (not a great place to be, by the way) are LOADED with the spirits of people who have “confessed Jesus” with their mouths (and who were quite genuine about that) but who completely denied the way of their INNER ASCENSION in Christ.
Again, this all in no way diminishes the work of Jesus Christ on the cross. It does though reveal what that represents in a way that most of Christianity has yet to figure out. Beloved, CHRIST is “the true Light which enlightens every man coming to the world.” In Jesus “the fullness of Christ was in the world bodily,” the Christ through which “the world was even made,” but the world did not know (or recognize) the Christ, not in Jesus, and therefore not in their own hearts. In Jesus was “THE LIFE” (the Christ) and “THE LIFE” was (and is) “THE LIGHT OF MEN,” and “THIS LIGHT” did shine in the darkness (of men’s hearts and minds), but the darkness comprehended it not…and still does not comprehend it.
