Recently, I sent this response out to a man that had visited my website. I wanted to pass it along to you. It has been so long since I have written ANYTHING so when this response came yesterday morning, I wanted to share it with you. If you feel it is not beneficial to you in your current walk, please disregard with my apologies.

You are greatly loved and necessary for the advancement of the kingdom age,

Michael,

Thanks for taking the time to tell me a little bit about yourself. It sounds as though we have experienced a lot of the same things. I have recently (3 months ago) taken all of my writing off my website because of the continual adjustment and transition of my belief. I have been encouraged by Gary Sigler and others to keep the articles on line and I may bring them back with minor adjustment with the belief that even though I am not necessarily “there” anymore, someone else may be in that place and the writing may help them transition.

I was for most of my life up until 1999 a typical charismatic Christian complete with all the dogma you can imagine. I now see that it was a very beneficial experience and has brought me to where I am today. I posed this question to God a few months back, “Where am I?” because I didn’t feel like I fit in anywhere anymore – I felt completely free of borders that would hedge me into to one category or another. God replied by showing me a picture.

Picture if you will a huge sphere. Then picture these big huge bold letters written across the width of the sphere C H R I S T. Next picture a very small almost undetectable bubble at the very bottom of the sphere labeled, charismatic Christianity. God then pointed outside of the small bubble in the vastness of the space within Christ and said I was there. He also then illuminated other small bubbles and they were labeled, Catholicism, Buddhism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Hinduism, Judaism, Protestantism, etc… you get the picture. Christ is so vast, all encompassing and is the light that lights all men regardless of how they label themselves. The important message in all this is that “Christ” is not a last name for Jesus, Jesus Himself said it was necessary that He “go away” so that we would be sent the comforter to lead us. Christ is what He modeled for us, a union between God and man or more specifically, the union or marriage between the soul of man and the spirit of God. Once this occurs, the full measure of the stature of Christ is revealed in us as Sons of God.

Once this union takes place consummation is eminent (perfection) and the manifestation of the next dimension occurs. The Kingdom is now in full manifestation where there is no time lapse between thought and manifestation. Jesus had this marriage between His soul (“nevertheless not my will but thy will be done”) and between the Spirit of God which enabled him to become “the Christ.”

Matthew 9:14-17

14 Then the disciples of John came to Him, saying, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, F39 but Your disciples do not fast?” 15 And Jesus said to them, “Can the friends of the bridegroom mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken.”

Jesus was referring to Himself as the Bridegroom – have you wondered why He is not called the Groom? It is simply this; Jesus had both components within himself joined – the Bride (soul) and Groom (Spirit) and this union produced the kingdom age all around him so much that others were able to step into that realm and do the same miraculous works as He. But notice He said it would be taken from them and it was. Decades after the death and resurrection Paul was noted saying to Timothy not to be healed from his many infirmities but to drink wine for his ailments. What happened to the supernatural dimension? The kingdom was no longer in full manifestation. The bridegroom had departed but a pattern of union between thought (mind and soul or left brain) with Spirit (or emotion, right brain). Right now the brain is separated into two hemispheres (represented by the tree of the knowledge of good and evil). When union takes place between mind and spirit, the next dimension manifests. Our earth is patterned the same way – western hemisphere is rational, logical and the eastern hemisphere is imaginative, spiritual, mystical. There is a huge chasm of thought, doctrine and belief between the two hemispheres. The chasm in the natural separating the two halves of the brain is called the corpus callosum. It is called a “veil.” This veil will be removed, along with the inability to use both halves of the brain simultaneously, no separation, no duality. The way to the Father is patterned and that narrow way is CHRIST. The two shall become one.

Right now when we think logically, or to reason with our own human understanding, the left halve of the brain is shown to have tremendous electrical charges firing within the western hemisphere. If you have seen this on film, it looks like an incredible lightning storm in our brain). If we are given a spiritual or imaginative picture to think about, the same electrical storm happens in the right hemisphere of the brain. The key is to get the mind and spirit to come into union. The bride (soul, logical, reasoning) part of our being must submit to the groom (Spirit of God) then we are no longer separate but joined as the “Bridegroom.”

They asked Jesus when the coming of “CHRIST” again would be and He answered them, Matt 24:27 – For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

Sorry this is so long but I wanted you to know where I am coming from when I suggest some rather “new age” type books and authors. I have come to find Christ is everywhere if we look for it as silver and gold.

As referenced on my website, the Power of Now by Eckart Tolle is invaluable to begin to understand that we are not our minds. Our mind is a tool, not a master.

That is where I would suggest you to begin. Co-creation is a manifestation of the function of the CHRIST. This book is a strong help in understanding the mind. All for now.

Warmly,
