Contrary to traditional Christian belief, that does not speak of the Christ Jesus, even though Jesus was also a servant of God. According to Jesus himself, the one who now fulfills both Judeo-Christian prophecies glorifies God the Holy One in heaven. and also glorifies the Christ who is with God in heaven.

You see, the mortal Christ Jesus, also a son of man, said: "Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not and does not know him. But you shall know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you... Yet a little while, and the world sees me no more ... At that day you shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you." – John 14:17-20

Jesus also said: "I tell you the truth; It is to your advantage that I go away: for if I do not go away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him to you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in me [or my teachings]; of righteousness, because I go to our Father [to heaven] and you see me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth. For he shall not speak of himself [or claim authority for himself]; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he declare, and he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me, for he shall receive of mine, and shall declare it to you." (John 16:7-15)

That clearly reveals that because Jesus had to go away and we would see him no more, he would send someone delivering the message from the Spirit of truth who will issue the judgment, guide humanity unto the truth, show you things to come, and glorify and declare the testimony of the Christ in heaven.

However, while "the Spirit of truth" can influence and inspire individuals through spiritual revelation or epiphany, the Holy Spirit-Consciousness of the Ancient One needs a messenger to convey and deliver the message to all humanity. It couldn’t happen otherwise. And the message reminds all the world of what the enlightened ones taught; to guide us unto the truth, clarify the truth, show us things to come, and deliver the judgment in writing so that the message can be delivered to all humanity.

But again, the messenger is not a leader in the usual sense of the word, and because he readily admits that he is not the Holy One but serves the Holy One, and that he merely shows the way from behind the scenes, people do not believe him and reject him.

Isaiah wrote about that too, and I will show you instances of that. But first please look at how the Christ Jesus spoke of the messenger for the Spirit of truth in other ways as well.

For example, Jesus said: "For as the lightening that lightens one part under heaven shines unto the other part under heaven, so shall also the son of man be in his day. But first he must suffer many things, and be rejected by his generation." (Luke 17:24-25)

Of course, traditional Christian belief is that Jesus was speaking of himself there, but that misunderstanding was because Jesus did speak of himself when he said something very similar. That is, Jesus said of himself: "this son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain."

That is indeed similar, which is why it was assumed that what is written in Luke 17:24-25 (about the son of man first suffering many things and being rejected by his generation) was also about Jesus. But it was not. Granted, Jesus certainly was a son of man. He certainly was rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and he certainly did suffer and was slain as a martyr and sacrificial lamb of God. However, his suffering was not first or beforehand. It was only at the very end of his life and after his mission was fulfilled.

Furthermore, even though Jesus was rejected by those in power (by the elders and chief priests and scribes), he was not rejected by his generation. In fact, Jesus was accepted by multitudes from every generation at the time. That is made clear throughout the book of Matthew and in the book of Luke. It was also confirmed by an impartial Jewish historian, Flavius Josephus, who wrote at the time that Jesus "won over many Jews and many of the Greeks."

Unfortunately, the truth has not been understood because there are certain phrases written in the Christian gospels that have contributed significantly to myth of the "second coming" of the Christ Jesus.

For example, one of those phrases says Jesus "will meet us in the air" and quotes Jesus as saying, "If I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again." But, if we examine what he said in context, we can see the real truth, for Jesus immediately added that this "meeting us in the air" and "coming again" would be only "to receive you unto myself, that where I am, there you may be also." (John 14:3)

Jesus was not talking about a literal "second coming" on earth, but about the very real spiritual union that takes place between individual souls who have been, to put it in biblical terms, "carried away in spirit to that high and holy place where God inhabits eternity."

As I said on the home page, this experience takes place when you least expect it, when you "lose your self" in some aspect of the divine and are fortuitously blessed with the opening of the "seven seals of revelation" and the seven chakras. It results in the actual epiphany and rapture, the "anointing and baptism" in the Holy Spirit, and real spiritual rebirth. That enables you to fully realize you are spiritually one with God and all humanity.

That is why the Christ Jesus said, "I and my Father are one." That’s why he said, "As you do unto the least of our brethren, so you do unto me." And that is also why he said when the "Spirit of truth" comes to you, "you shall know that I am in God, and you in me, and I in you." You will know that we are in fact One in the Spirit.
