IN THE TIMES WHEN I WALKED THE EARTH as Jesus there were many factions of Jews. Among them were the Essenes, who believed the time of the Messiah was nigh. I was the promised Messiah, the Christ which was promised to deliver God’s chosen people from the yoke of their Earthly life. But they expected that I had come to free them from the yoke of man’s bondage. The Romans, who had conquered the land, were the oppressors from whom they wanted me to deliver them.
But my mission, like yours, is not to free man from his own bondage, one man’s of another, but to free all men from the yoke of physical bondage; to bring him into a higher consciousness in order to raise him closer to God, pure and holy. For you cannot come to God’s pure and clear channel if you are impure and bespeckled with Earthly passions and misinterpretation of God’s laws and purposes.
When I preached to the people everywhere in the land of Israel — without barrier, without prejudice; for I had come not for the Jews but for the chosen few who could understand and thereby raise their level of consciousness — I was met with opposition; as you shall meet with opposition and doubt. But I was faithful to my Father in whom I knew I was one; as you must come to know. Therefore, I could raise my thoughts, my feelings, my experiences above physical levels.
My crucifixion — which none [on Earth] truly understand — was planned, as my life and mission were planned, by the Holy Father in heaven Himself. For He has appointed, to guard over His kingdom of children, many legions of angels and Christ-conscious souls who can and do and shall lift the lower consciousness of man as it has been and as it is today. . . .
When I led my disciples of truth — of which there were more than twelve — led them in the way of God’s light and truth, I knew I should have to demonstrate this truth no matter how difficult it would be for me personally, physically. It was not my will that I be crucified or my will to suffer, as some of the more enlightened have come to realize. But it was man’s stiff-necked principles that led me to the cross. For they had to have proven to themselves that all I taught, all I believed, could and would materialize as I had preached it would.
They led me to the cross and I could not resist their evil, their low consciousness. For to resist is to give strength to it. By letting them crucify me, as they needed and wanted to do in their subconscious minds, they came to find that all I preached of Christ consciousness was, after all, true. Then they too could believe and try to live as I had lived. It is not easy, it is not yet accomplished, otherwise there would be paradise on the Earth plane now and your mission would not be needed.
Are you afraid of your crucifixion? For you shall have one. As every Christ must have his, so must you have yours; not on the cross as I was hung, but on a cross symbolically, on a cross of another material, in another manifestation than one so obvious and so plainly conquered as the one I conquered. Are you afraid you shall not survive the crucifixion? A Christ must survive. A Christ must live eternally. Each one of God’s children has planted in him the Christ Self, which is God Self and which must survive every test, every cross that man — lower, mortal self; lower consciousness and subconsciousness, but never superconsciousness— survives. It must lift itself into eternity. It must become the only consciousness God’s children live in.
The cross of mankind is the civilization mankind has made for himself, eon upon eon, since the beginning of his life upon a material Earthlike plane. This cross must be survived. Mankind as a race, men as individuals must raise themselves above and over the experience of the suffering of the torment of darkness, which is the cross, and raise finally into the light, which is God consciousness and is the resurrection. . . . It is, as I have stated, a needed experience, for without the test, without the cross you cannot rise. Are you wondering of God’s justice? Do not think it is God who imposes man on the cross. Man imposes it on himself. . . .
Do you not know that men wondered, as men wonder today: what is the sum and purpose of all this life; why should we be afflicted and in pain and in sorrow; why, if there is a God, must we not have ease and food without working for it? Men wondered then and are still wondering. Inside, within their own Christ Selves, they knew, as men today know and cannot escape from their conscience, that there must be some reason and purpose in such complex creation. It must be God’s divine plan. It could not, it cannot manifest simply by explosion, as some scientists have put forth shamefacedly and with little true conviction. They are searching. They searched and questioned then. I came, and you have come, to prove to them and to our individual soul evolvements that our inner voice, our God Selves, our Christ consciousness speaks loudest and the most truth.
But men have tested and will test. They have crucified and they will crucify. Could I have escaped crucifixion? Yes, but it would have hindered my soul’s growth and the growth of the race of mankind. This I knew. This you are beginning to know. And you shall be as firm in your conviction as I was in mine. Did I falter? No, I did not falter. Did I question? Not in my Christ consciousness; I did not. In my mortal self I did. In my mortal self I cried in pain, in thirst, in fear. But in Christ consciousness one has no pain, no fear, no doubt.
