Matthew 9:28 (NIV) When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they replied.
If someone were to ask me how I personally perceive Jesus, I think I would say that He was primarily a philosopher.
I see Him as the LOGOS (the ability to reason and manifest the thought) of God, personally raising all of mankind to the status of realized divinity; for the explicit purpose of eternal friendship with Him. He teaches us how to master our baser instincts while experientially laboring with Him in the creation of our higher-selves.
The central thought in Jesus’ philosophy is that the Kingdom of God has been realized in the Eternal Now, which is different from the way we experience time and space.
For Jesus, the way we perceive and experience the cosmos is an illusion, since in reality, only God’s perception is perfectly true.To know ultimate truth is to truly know that the source of life, is a divinely-transcendental person.–jcr
God is always working; He is always busy planning and creating. God never ceases to pay attention. He is always focused on what He is creating and sustaining the cycles of life, death and recreation.
This eternal, rational realization of the Supreme God is what is known as the “Eternal Day.” God never rests…He never ceases to labor, to reason, to plan or to execute. He is always self-aware while being aware of everything that is everywhere and at all times and spaces that could possibly ever be conceived and/or realized by an infinitude of gods, in an equally infinitude of universes.
In Him there is no shadow of variation. No night… God exists in a state of an eternal now, where time does not pass by like a sequence of moments, but rather the moment, always remains the same. Heaven is like a living picture caught forever in the pleasure of a fully-realized, triumphal and blissful state.
The philosophy of Jesus invites mankind to make a decision to live in the present according to God’s perception of our future, higher-selves. The way you perceive yourself is a self-imposed projection that can only be healed by means of devotion to God and reason.
Jesus comes and changes our perspective. His philosophy turns our eyes from dwelling in the illusion of the past, to focusing with God upon the Eternal Day; where from His perspective, you are already perfect. From God’s eyes, you are His divine image, and that is what truly matters.
Most of Jesus’ miracles were done only because his benefactors believed that he could heal them. Time and time again, Jesus says: “Your FAITH has healed you.” (Mark 5:34; 10:52; Luke 17:19; et al.) It seems that part of the healing ministry of Jesus is to serve as a facilitator who leads the captive into freeing himself by means of getting a glimpse of God’s perception of our true, realized selves.
The teachings of Jesus are meant to awaken mankind from its beastial existence- focused on satisfying the senses, to learning how to progress towards the realm of the higher-self and the realization that we were created for divine dignity.
In the philosophy of Jesus, true freedom begins by understanding the truth about our most inner self. “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free..” (John 8:32)
The man must become honest with himself and sincerely make a decision as to whether he will proceed towards the process of divinity (theosis) or continue living like a sense-bound animal.. Once you’ve made your decision, then that intention sets off a mystical signal to the universe that echoes back the finished product of your spoken word, by the power of the LOGOS.
In the person of Jesus, God teaches us that we are as divine as we want to be. (John 1:12) That we do not experience divinity now, because we believe that we will experience divinity in the future, after we die. Jesus teaches His disciples to believe that we are now, what we have hoped to be in the future, because our ultimate end defines our present.
If you believe that your future healing and restoration is for now, you’ll receive it; since it would rapidly lead towards communing with God, without circumventing the process.
Mark 11:24 (NIV) Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
If you make the decision to see life from the perspective of the good triumphing over evil, then your whole life will be filled with joy in the present, and you will experience the Kingdom of God, which is now realized.
Seek first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
To come to this realization…this enlightened state, is what it means to be “born-again.”
Being saved is not the assurance that one day you will be in heaven. Salvation is the realization that in reality, you are in Heaven already. That your ultimate end defines your existential now.
You are saved when you realize that your present life is a process towards an already realized divinity, that shares in the throne of the Most High God and commands over myriads of Angels.
