“Do we need Jesus to protect us from God or did he come to reconnect us to God in consciousness and perhaps protect us from ourselves and our misperceptions of God?
Jesus said: Lo I’ll be with you to the end of the age. Is this the end of an age? And if so, does that mean we must rethink Jesus?
Jesus and God are one, and came to show us we are one with him and one with God, as mentioned in his prayer – “that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they may be one just as We are one” (John 17:23)
Jesus came to reconnect us to God in consciousness because we once felt alienated from God in our consciousness as we forgot our true identity. (Colossians 1:21) Jesus came to awake us to who we really are – to know that we are gods, and we are made in God’s image. (John 10:34, Genesis 1:26)
“Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.” (1 John 4:17)
When we know Jesus is our true identity, we will see ourselves perfect, blameless, innocent and beloved, just as He is. We will be protected from guilt and condemnation and we will be set free from fear because the truth of the gospel sets us free from ourselves and our misconceptions of God.
Is this a different gospel?
Someone at this point may claim that this is a “different gospel” that Satan used to deceive people and quoted 2 Corinthians 11:14 “And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.” Regarding 2 Corinthians 11, my understanding of the context is that it is about not accepting a different gospel that teaches people to perform in order to become something. That is the law mindset based on the tree of knowledge of good and evil, as opposed to the grace mindset based on the tree of life. We do not need to do anything to become God – we are already God and we are already divine because there is no separation between us and God and we are one with God. Worship can be simply seen as “worthship” – we worship God/ourselves/one another by realising we are already worthy and valuable because we are made perfect and blameless.
When we say Namaste to one another in greeting or salutation, for example, we are worshipping God in one another, so to speak.
“Namaste, the God in me Salutes the God in you.”
