What is "Jesus" really? Who is "Jesus" to you really?


For as long as I can remember, the subject of "Jesus" has been one that provokes the deepest responses from people on both sides of the conversation. As a former Christian, I have seen 1st hand how this religion encourages it's members to go door to door sharing the "good news" yet (sit on the sidelines) and "wait for Jesus" to return instead of building on the true message behind what a Messiah truly is. All of this sheds light on the subject of destiny vs free will. Ultimately regardless of what religion is to any of us, every human being has to ask themselves: "Is there a purpose for why I'm here?" There are a lot of spiritual leaders out there who tell members of their congregation that "If we just hold on to Jesus, everything is gonna be alright!" And like sheep led to the slaughter house many continue to do "hold on to Jesus" while the world continues to fall apart. Yet a lot of "Christians" say they would die for "Jesus" or "I would die for this" or "that" or "him" or "her." Honestly, anything you are willing to "die for" is something you're not fit to have. How can you enjoy the benefits of the very thing you died for if you're dead? I once heard someone pose the question: "Name something you would die for." My response was: "I don't look for things to die for. I look for things to (live) for." During the days when I was a Christian, the one thing I do remember about what was written about Jesus is the fact that he was a "doer" and not just a "believer." He wasn't a sideline player waiting for God to come down and fix problems the people of the world made because He realized that those same people had the power to fix the problems themselves. He discouraged people from being amazed whenever he did a "miracle" by telling them they would "do greater works than this."

Throughout history, man has evolved the world we live in through the advancement of technology and philosophy. We have put men on the moon and built machines that can take us across the globe in a day. We have even built buildings that reach the sky. If you believe man has the brain power to make and do such things, you damn well better start believing man has the brain power to make heaven on earth. The reason we have good and evil is the gift of free will. We are not mindless robots who have no control over what we want to do or be. Although the flesh can influence us to do things, we can choose to expand our thinking and knowledge. We can also choose to be either puppets or Messiahs. The sad part about this generation of Bible thumpers is the fact that they repeat the same mistakes of their ancient predecessors. Unless a man or woman is dressed in sackcloth and ashes they don't want to hear anything from their mouths that has the word "God" in the conversation. We have always had the power to change our governments, our laws, and our leaders. When we are willing to act as one people and use the power we have within ourselves, there is nothing we can't accomplish.

One of the deepest passages from the scriptures is John 10:34: "Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are (GODS)?" During my time as a former Christian I never heard a single pastor teach a sermon or Sunday School lesson on this particular passage. Not one.. Why that doesn't strike current believers as "odd" is beyond me. But again if I may take a quote from one of my favorite expository teachers Ray Hagins: "That's how the program works." It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand what Jesus is saying in this passage. It's simple and to the point. The world is full of "men and mice." We can choose to be a man or a mouse. We can choose to be be students of life who never graduate, or we can choose to take the knowledge we gain from life's available resources and lessons and become giants. We can choose to be followers, or we can choose to be "Gods." We are not here to die a slow and fruitless death. We are here to live a long and prosperous life. Anytime you want to see Jesus, you don't have to open a Bible to do so. All you have to do is look in the mirror. Recognize the power you have within yourself to create the world you want to see. Once you elevate your mind to that level of consciousness, you'll see that heaven really is a place on earth.

Greetings queen Isis,

And thanks so much for the wonderful info. To answer your question on Jesus, I don't believe what the Bible says about him or the story we've been given by the hands of the oppressor. I believe our story as well as God can be found in the Hieroglyphs of Kemit. That is where I spend most of my time with this subject. I am aware of the lies we've been told and am connecting the dots daily. I still thank you for all this wonderful info though and will share it with some friends of mine who I feel will appreciate it. :) Do keep in touch as I always enjoy our conversations.

 

Peace,

J

Beloved Mighty warrior Joseph.

I bow and salute your humbleness by sharing your experience with religion and this Jesus.

Beloved Joseph before I continue after this posting, I need to know how do you Identify yourself. Is it Afrikan American, American, Black American?

I am going to need some time to return to this post because, what I have learned, after many have learned what I and other like minds Know, not believe, have learned, the name Jesus would not even be on our people lips at all and the name will not set well with our Spirit.

I am fully aware that our people are on many different conscious levels, and some of us are at the Top of the conscious Ladder level, some in the middle, some still at the bottom of the conscious level Ladder trying to reach the middle and the top. I did not get where I am in this conscious Ladder Level overnight.

I can only share what I know. I do not know what I do not know. I (believe) nothing. I too am still learning.

Check the below only if we desire to consciously keep growing.

Thank you brother Jones. This is certainly on point. I'm happy that you could share with us this part of your journey. You now stand as a "God" among the gods. As for Jesus...I could never sum up my knowledge or personal feelings about the "Jesus Experience" in few enough words. So I won't...

I like your use of John 10:34...Jesus was referencing the scripture at Psalms 82: 6 ... "I have said , Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High."

I accept my place among the children of the most high (no matter what we call him/her/it). I acknowledge that I am a "God" among gods created in the image of the most high. My inheritance includes all nations (Ps. 82:7). My responsibility is to all nations of humanity. As a representative of the most powerful force in the universe I beg all to understand your rightful place and power as you entertain angels in your midst.

Hebrews 13:2 ... "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels (Gods) unawares"
