Sounds like bad news doesn't it. For many, it may be. For those who do not yet understand the true and eternal power of free will, the fact that Jesus isn't coming to Earth in a Caravan of Light to fix things up right tidy, could be devastating. Of course, there will be some who read this and judge it as false without hearing me out.
Can you imagine, waiting all this time for Jesus to come and save you, only to find out it doesn't work that way? All those Sunday church meetings and Wednesday prayer breakfasts for nothing? He's just not coming. Not in the way you expect.
Salvation is a state of mind/heart. You honestly do not have to go anywhere, physically, to be saved. Heaven is in the heart and needs no building, or textbook. Jesus had neither. The time has always been right now to truly surrender to Love and go home in the heart.
Contrary to popular belief, no one in the Middle East will die at the hands of God. No one in jails around the world will be lit on fire at the hands of Love. No lost soul will be shunned into oblivion at the hands of Light. No earth will be scorched at the hands of the Divine. No single soul who opted for Buddha or Mohammed, instead of Jesus, will be left behind and judged as unlovable and silly. What kind of God would play favorites? What kind of parent would unlove their child who chose a different way than they? Would that parent leave them behind and save only the child that falls in line?
The only thing that matters in all of life is the KNOWLEDGE and experience of Love. Whether you connect with love through Jesus, or through Yanni, it matters not. Love is Love and you will know it when you feel it. Love judges and fears nothing. Love includes every living thing, no matter what. Love sees no differences between this or that. Love is blind.
Jesus will not descend to Earth. Descending gives Jesus an ear ache. We are asked to Ascend to Love for eternity. We go up. He doesn't come down. Up means to elevate your heart and mind to that of the Christ Consciousness. Forgive the world you fear.
Fact is, it is YOU who must make the trip to your own Salvation. You will be the One, when you are ready, to forgive the world and choose peace. With your willingness and effort comes the open road and a map. It is up to you to pack your own bags, fill up your own gas, put air in the tires, and chart your journey of the heart. You will be lovingly Guided as you move along, as you are dedicated to be the peace you seek. You determine the smooth or rocky road, you determine the timing, you determine your traveling companions, you determine how many stops you will make along the way. Jesus is waiting on you to Come Unto Him, and he will wait forever. But, if you sit and wait while you pluck from your life experience only what you feel is worthy of Love, and reject the image of Christ in your brothers, you will be waiting forever.
Think of all the many millions of people who honestly believe there is a way to go home on a wing and a prayer without taking important parts of themselves with them, such as their brothers and sisters. There is a wonderful teaching in A Course In Miracles, a favorite text of mine, that says, "No one goes home until we all go home." It's a no brainer really, if you believe in a God who loves unconditionally.
We did not arrive alone, and we will not go home alone. You are never alone. How could you be? We are One. Quantum Physics has proven this. We are all deeply connected and that connection is the key to understanding Salvation.
Unless and until you understand the true meaning of forgiveness, which is to release and surrender all perceived error in another, you cannot get through the last toll booths. Forgiveness, even unto death. This is a lot harder than it sounds.
There will come a time when you will pass from this physical plane, and move into a spirit essence, but the temporary ceiling of unforgiveness is still set by humankind's unwillingness to take the hand of our perceived enemies. I suspect the next, non-physical level up is filled with confused Christians, Muslims and Jews, wondering "Why the rest stop?" No one person can decide for another, but it's the collective "Yes!" that will open the Gates of Heaven. The Gates of Heaven ask only that we all come together.
Your true Salvation lies only in your continued decision for forgiveness and love in the here and now. Dedicate to leave this planet understanding the sun shines on everyone, and you will find haven in the hands of Light on the next leg of your journey. Leave this planet pointing fingers and you will know the sure direction you must walk to meet face to face with your own unhealed heart.
Jesus said, "Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do." We can believe that. And we can forgive too. Jesus never fought the darkness, even unto death. He offered only light.
A while ago, I was praying for some guidance and asked God how Jesus had the power to heal and perform miracles. I was taking an interest in energy and how it works within our Universe. I imagined, at the time, that Jesus had some special way of performing miracles, and I wanted to know what that way was. Was it simply God working through him? That's when I imagined God as a person. Were there certain thoughts, or symbols, or beads, or candles, or foods that blessed him in certain ways? I envisioned a detailed answer to my prayer. I never doubted I would get the truth. The answer came: "Jesus forgave the world." Jesus had only one thing he needed to act in the image of his Creator. Love.
Jesus is not coming to Earth to retrieve us good ones, or offer us the Kingdom we think we lost. The Kingdom is within. It was never taken from us. We hid it from ourselves. But, Jesus longs for us, and all those we have judged as unworthy of Love. He longs for them no less than he longs for us. Recognition of this one thing alone, will get you where you want to be. It is a journey, and is one that includes the thoughts and actions of all living things.
You have free will. You have a map. You have the Will to be what you really are. It's your choice. No one is going to make it for you, or save you from a fierce Earth. Forgive the world and everything in it. The cost of deciding otherwise is the cost of Salvation.
