Ascended Master Jesus, January 4, 2009 through Kim Michaels.
I AM the Real Jesus—not the fake Jesus that people have been worshiping for nigh 2,000 years, thinking that I need to be worshiped by human beings. Nay, why would I need to be worshiped when I AM indeed an expression of the God Flame of unconditional, infinite, never-ending, inexhaustible Joy?
Now, how many of you – most of you having grown up in a Christian culture – would associate joy with the name “Jesus Christ?” Apparently, none of you! And it is quite understandable, my beloved, for I dare say that if you were to ask that question of the billions of Christians on this earth, few of them would dare to answer in the affirmative.
The stigma created by the perverted Christianity over these 2,000 years hangs over this planet like a dark cloud. Yet I must tell you that I came with a joyful message. As my Mother, both physical and spiritual, said yesterday, there was a certain consciousness of death that was judged and taken from this planet as a result of my victory and resurrection. It was indeed a very joyous and joyful event, setting people free, giving them the potential to rise to a higher level of consciousness.
I come to bring joy to the world
I come today to bring more of that Joy Flame so that those who are willing – those who are prepared at inner levels, some during many embodiments over these past 2,000 years of seeing every shading of Christianity – can accept, indeed, the joyful message of my coming. The kingdom of God is at hand!
When that death consciousness was lifted, it did indeed become possible for many people to embody the Christ consciousness on earth, which had not been – in practicality – possible before although it was possible in theory. It was possible for a few, but certainly not possible for the many. We have now the unprecedented potential that many people can dare to embody Christhood and dare to express it, dare to communicate it to the world.
The essential service
As a representative of the Sixth Ray of God Peace and God Service, let me expound on how that ray can help you communicate from the heart. The essence of service is what? It is precisely, as other masters have spoken about, that you come to the realization that all life is One and that the only way to raise up yourself is to raise up the All.
As I said 2,000 years ago: “Greater love has no man than to lay down his life for a friend.” Greater love has no spiritual being in heaven than to lay down that spiritual life, enter into the material realm that is dominated by the death consciousness in order to awaken a friend to the potential to rise above that consciousness. My embodiment as Jesus exemplified that which in the East is called the Bodhisattva vow. Those who hear the cries of the world, and instead of leaving the world behind stay with it – often re-embodying in it although they have no karmic reason for doing so – in order to help their unascended brothers and sisters awaken to their higher potential.
When you have passed the initiations of the Fifth Ray, this becomes the very foundation for communication from the heart: the desire to serve and to raise all life. Here we must take a look at how this concept of service can be perverted—and has been perverted by those who are trapped in the illusion of the separate self. They are betrayed by their own good intentions into thinking that in order to serve other people, it is acceptable to force them – somehow – to be saved by becoming members of a particular religion that they have come to believe will give them automatic entry into the kingdom of heaven. I made many statements and gave several parables specifically to show you that no outer religion can guarantee your entry to the wedding feast, for the kingdom of God is within. How can you enter that inner kingdom through any external means, my beloved?
It can only happen through a transformation of consciousness, a transformation of the heart. You cannot force anyone to go through that transformation. It must come from within the being as the result of free choices.
