-How can I be absolutely
sure that Christ is in me, am a son
of God, have eternal life and that I'm in the higher consciousness
truth of the Creator?
According to Hank
Hanegraaff of the Christian Research Institute, Christ
being 'inside us' refers not to locale,
but rather to an intimate, personal relationship with Him.(*).
As such, the
'in' is not a locational but a relational term. Similarly, where the scripture
10:38 "...the Father is in me and I in the Father".(*),
Emmanuel is not speaking of physical location but intimacy of relationship.
And what can this
intimacy of relationship do for your life?
Think of it like an ocean
and universe, the ocean being Christ and the universe being God and you
are in the ocean, wading and swimming. It's not a sea of uncertainty as
can be back on the shore where in this life with many people floundering
through it. It's a calm, peaceful and sure thing and safe:.Matthew
14:9-11 "Emmanuel said unto him, Have I been so long time with you
and yet have you not known me, Philip? he that has seen me has seen the
Father and how say you then, Show us the Father? Believe you not that I
am in the Father and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you
I speak not of myself, but the Father that dwells in me, he does the works.
Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in me or else believe
me for the very works' sake." John 17:26
"And I have declared unto them your name and will continue to declare it,
that the love wherewith you have loved me may be in them and I in them."
14:20 "...I am in my Father and you in me and I in you."
4:13 "Hereby know we that we dwell in him and he in us because he has
given us of his Spirit."
5:11 "And this is the record, that God has given to us eternal life
and this life is in his Son."
5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come and has given us an understanding,
that we may know him that is true and we are
in him that is true, even in his Son Emmanuel Christ. This is the true
God and eternal life."
You are spiritual when you
stop believing that.the
Creator is anywhere else but in you.(John
is expressing as you.when
awakened to your direction in life involving at least one of the attributes
of God's higher

in whom you also are builded together for an habitation of God through
the Spirit." 1Corinthians 6:15
"Know you not that your bodies are the members of Christ?..." Ephesians
4:24 "And that you put on the new man, which after God is created in
and true holiness." Galatians 3:26
"For you are all the children of God by faith in Christ Emmanuel.".2Corinthians
4:11; 1Thessalonians 5:18.
How is this the true God?.John
8:42. And, isn't the Creator in a
place called heaven?
If you're in Christ,
in God the
Father, the Father-Creator and He's
in you. What does that mean?
Dissolving this illusion
of separation happens when you use these
methods. See the trailer about this, still
in the works movie.
Another step in the right
direction is comprehension
You are spiritual when you
notice that what your attention is on has your good intentions behind
it. You are spiritual when you are not like the ego, which is predominately
serious in outlook, but are rather one
of laughter and lightheartedness.
Don't think of the Creator
as being 'up there somewhere'.
The Creator is in you, is
you when growing in higher consciousness:.Hebrews
10:38. Appreciate by being thankful in your heart for the gift
of lower consciousness in your life, things worked against you
set up by the Great Infinite Intelligence, so you would know something
is wrong, even though, at the time, you probably couldn't see how to fix
was causing it.
It is this realm
of higher consciousness that Christ is in, part
of a very high order. He was of this invisible group of powerful priests
and He was one
with what we call the
What works good for all is
love and how it works is by faith:.Galatians
5:6 "For in Emmanuel the Christ...faith
works by love.".The
invisible family of the Creator works by love.
word Christ means).means
being in the spiritual realm. The Bible refers to this as being
Hebrews 2:10; 13:21.
When you look at something
with an eye to taking selfish advantage you are out of spirituality. When
you look at something with an eye to the things
of higher consciousness you are spiritual. The real you is the
selector of that which you follow. In your
soul are your decisions.
Being spiritual means a change
from the ego self from which you have acted from all your life:.2Corinthians
4:2 "But have renounced the hidden
things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling
the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth.(bringing
the truth of the high consciousness of God out in your daily
living thoughts and actions).commending
ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.".And
just how do we conduct ourselves in a way that does it?.Romans
The Creator is in us by
love. And it is spending time in love by means of meditation
that one uses the love that is in you for purposes
of higher consciousness.
If God be in you, what's
He doing if not the thoughts of higher consciousness that
4:6-17; John 17:26.
God is in the invisible realm,
where eternity is and this is always the
present and it's into the invisible realm where He is found that we
must be. It's a thing of the spirit:.John
4:23,24. It's a thing of being in the present in our mind, the underlying
present being that of higher consciousness.
4:6,7 "And because you are sons, God has sent forth the
Spirit of his Son.into
we talk to someone by phone and our words can affect another if they are
open-minded; similarly is Christ in our hearts, in that as we study and
meditate, the Holy Spirit emphasizes certain thoughts personal to
us, and much more),
crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore
you are no more a servant, but a
son and if a son, then an heir of God through.(orginal
also means 'by means of').Christ."
When the Bible talks
of Christ or God being in you, it refers to what Christ
is. Christ or God is higher consciousness than most of us live, which is
from the drudging
ego level, not being effectively aware of a better option.
11:26 "...the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch."
Once a Christian.(and
anyone is a 'Christian'
if their motives are of love and the
higher consciousness things are keeping them in the realm
of this Great Infinite Intelligence, no matter what religion
they may or may not be in), in our
deepest selves, our connection with the
Soul, we just know we want to stay allied
with the Father.(how?),
this presence, this omnipresence
we sense from our souls that we come to see.(through
belief which is the knowing of a real connection in meditation time, a
which strengthens each time it is made).is
really there, the Great Infinite
Intelligence of the universe:.Romans
A Christian therefore is
one who is motivated by the spirit or the nature of love of the Infinite
One, also called, the spirit of Christ:.Titus
3:4-6; Romans 5:5.
This is an attitude of
love, kindness, etc. Anyone having the law of love in his heart.(called
a Christian in the Bible in
the New Testament).is
of God and what
does that mean?
The law of love in the heart,
being the higher consciousness of the spirit, lifts one up and away from
of the so much lower ego realm.
Note above that it says."the
Spirit of His Son into your hearts". We are
this Spirit which is the Universal Intelligent Creative Energy, by which
all creation we see has come into being, by which all creation not as yet
visible comes into being.
Emmanuel the Christ is the
energy, the Intelligent One who does the work:.John
3:35 "The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand."
13:3 "Emmanuel knowing that the Father had given all things into his
hands and that he was come from God and went to.(original
'going back to be with').God.(that
is, went back into the invisible universal energy from whence
Emmanuel became visible
from the creative sea of spirit, of energy:.1John
1:2 "For the life was manifested and we have seen it and bear witness
and show unto you that eternal life, which was with.(original

has hid these things from the wise and prudent and has revealed them unto
babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in your sight." 1Corinthians

also gives 'of' or 'from' and 'beside').you.(meaning
that you are in this universal energy now and always have been:.2Timothy
original words 'shall be' are 'shall happen').in.(original

Paul too talked of this oneness:.Galatians
above), from the original:.'Even
the Spirit of truth; that the
negative mass mind of humanity of the world cannot even begin to understand,
because it is not aware of the automatic functioning of universal laws
that would bring them all God wants them to have; they just do not know
that they do not know this, but you know.(or
should know by now).how
they work, because these work for you and you have not negated them by
thinking that they are not true for you and you wait in sureness for their
happening, their manifestation on the physical plane of existence because
of what you did to cause them to occur'.
We are one in this universal
energy with the God that created it all, Who is sharing all that is, with
us His children:.Hebrews
2:11 "...For which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren.(who
This energy, this creative
power that Emmanuel has is for you too:.John
17:11 "And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world
and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom
you have given me, that they may be one, as we are."
11:16 "But now they desire a.(word
'a' not in the original).better
'country' not in the original), that
is, an heavenly.(the
higher standard spiritual things, as are in the province
of God, that being a comprehensive area of knowledge and activity).
Wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God. For he has prepared
for them a city.(Revelation
That is, those who know these
things of universal law God set up to benefit us, now desire to be out
of the mass mind of humanity:.Ephesians
5:6 "Let no man deceive you with vain words.(2Peter
2:18-21). For because of these

children do not know there is a better way, a way to use the same universal
energy to their benefit). Be
not you therefore partakers with them.".Instead
be partakers of Christ:.Hebrews
3:14 "For we are made partakers of Christ..."Ephesians
2:10 "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Emmanuel unto good
works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.".2Timothy
5:6-11 "For you were sometimes darkness, but now are you light in the
Lord. Walk as children of light. For the fruit of the Spirit is in all
goodness and righteousness and truth, Proving what is acceptable unto the
Lord. And have no fellowship.(or,
don't be like that).with
the unfruitful works of darkness.(the
way that does not bring anything lasting that is good),
but rather reprove.(original
also gives 'see where it is faulty').them.(word
'them' is not in the original and therefore should not be there)."
This message of the gospel.(gospel
means 'good news').means
power for those who overstand
it and in a lesser extent to to beginning to understand
it, so their lives can be as God wants them to be and that is that everyone
has a super abundant life:.3John
1:2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou may prosper and be
in health, even as thy soul prospers." Romans
1:16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. For it is the
power of God unto salvation.(what
you may need saving from: if your sick, you need to be saved from that;
if your broke or struggling financially, you need saving here also; bad
relationships, same thing; these sort of things).to
every one that believes.(accepts
these good saving things as being true for them)..."
These universal laws, this
such great power for us, to bring into life all the good we want comes
as a result of believing in and thusly,
being within, the Intelligent Universal Energy which is God:.Romans
5:5 "And hope makes not ashamed, because the love of God is shed abroad
in our hearts by the Holy Ghost
which is given unto us." Ephesians 1:19
what is the exceeding greatness of his power to usward
who believe, according to the working of his mighty power."
when will all this good come for a person?
This power, this body of
Christ as it is called, fills the entire universe. We are in it and can
use its power if we just know how:.Ephesians
1:23 "Which is his body, the fulness of him that fills all in all."
These laws will always be
there, working according to belief, working all the time, for good or for
bad, depending on how they are used. Most of what's in the mass
mind we all have contributed to is of the negative side. It all depends
on thinking. If negative things, they come more into life. If what is good
for you and for those you love and like, they too come into your life and
God, this Intelligent Universal
Energy with its laws, universal laws governing application of the energy,
is no respecter of persons. That is, these are laws and as such, they work
good for all who comprehend how to work them and they work negatively for
all those ignorant of how to make them work in their favor.
They are always working,
one way or the other. It's a dynamic
creation. All works in mathematical precision, in exact accordance to what
each individual is thinking and feeling as true in their heart, their emotions
and what they have unwittingly
allowed to be programmed into their subconscious:.Acts
10:34 "Then Peter opened his mouth and said, Of a truth I perceive
that God is no respecter of persons."
We need become more and more
5:2 "Who can have compassion on the ignorant and on them that are out
of the way.(can't
seem to 'get it all together');
for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity."
We become more and more
like Him the more we live from the loving nature
we desire to be placed in us. Christ is the
high consciousness realm
of the Creator-Father. On Earth
as the physical being called Emmanuel, this high
consciousness was typified.
What does this do for us all?.Romans
11:15 "...the reconciling of the world and life
from the dead?" John
4:42 "...we believe not because of your saying for we have heard him
ourselves and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.".John
3:17. Believing in the heart that something is true, is accepting it.
What we have accepted to
be true of all that we
know Christ is, is expressed by us, automatically from the heart. But
we need to accept Christ as personal savior in order to be saved?
Unfortunately the lives of
most people are simply anything but calm, moving from one panic stricken
event to another, never having learned how
to get on track.
Pray for help to move away
from identifying yourself with
externals and into the realm of knowing for sure that you are indeed
expressing His nature of love, in all abundance and in all good for

one with this great power for good that exists that we call God, the Creator,
the Father? And what is so great here anyway?.Ephesians

was, are the children of promise."

the good pleasure of his will."

dwell in you:.Hebrews

house are we, if we hold fast the confidence
and the rejoicing of the

Do we believe in the resurrection?
Are we looking forward to the next step, where the real life begins; no
more sickness, pain and heartaches at all?.Hebrews
3:14 "For we are made partakers
of Christ, if.(and
hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end.(of
our physical lives)." Hebrews
10:35 "Cast not away therefore your confidence, which has great recompence
of reward." 1John 2:28 "And now, little
children, abide in him, that when he shall
appear we may have confidence and not be ashamed before him at his coming."
3:23 "And you are Christ's and Christ is God's."
2:5 "You also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an
holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual
sacrifices, acceptable to God by Emmanuel the Christ." Ephesians
2:20 "And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
Emmanuel the Christ himself being the chief corner stone."
2:16 "For who has known the mind
of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.(without
the mind of Christ how can we have a mind for spiritual concerns?)."
3:23,24 "And this is His commandment: That we should believe on the
name of his Son Emmanuel the Christ and love one another.(verses
16-19), as He gave us commandment.

in Him and He in him. And hereby we know that He abides in us, by
Spirit which he has given us."

but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the

you does not overrun your individual personality, but rather, enables your
to have genuine feelings of concern toward others and the Father, but,
you direct your own attitude's direction by your thoughts each day:.John
