Dication by Ascended Master Jesus, November 14, 2002 through Kim Michaels
My beloved hearts, this book has one purpose, and one purpose only. My purpose is to awaken those who are ready to walk the path of personal Christhood. I have said that millions of lifestreams are ready for my true teachings and for the path of Christhood. I will not tell you how many millions we are talking about, but I will tell you that it is a very large number of people.
How do you know if you belong to those who are ready to walk with me on the path to personal Christhood? If you are reading these words then you are one of my own, and you are ready (at inner levels of your lifestream) for my true path.
The first two sections of this book are designed to act as a filter to separate those who are not yet ready for my true path. This is not to in any way condemn the people who are not ready. However, if a person is not ready, that person simply needs to move on and leave this book behind. I am a practical spiritual teacher, and I know from experience that you simply cannot reach everyone. What does it take to be ready for my true teachings? It takes an open mind and an open heart.
If people have not yet opened their hearts and minds to my true teachings, the first part of this book would have presented them with one or several ideas that such people are not ready to accept. Their human egos would have come up with some kind of reasoning why a particular idea simply could not have come from the real Jesus Christ. Therefore, they would have had the perfect excuse for rejecting the entire book. I have seen people do this very thing millions of times over the past 2,000 years. They will find some little thing to criticize, and then they will use that one detail as an excuse for rejecting me, my teachings or my messenger. I have especially seen this among those who hold positions in the mainstream churches that claim to represent me on earth.
When I personally appeared on earth, I was rejected by almost everyone who held a position of power in the Jewish religion. Since then, I have attempted to appear at inner levels to those who held positions in the Church that they claim represents me. In too many cases, I have been rejected. Because so many people were not able to hear me when I spoke to them in their hearts, I have attempted to send outer messengers. I have worked with those of great courage, those who were not afraid to speak out against authority. So often my messengers have been rejected, treated with contempt or even killed.
Therefore, this book is not designed to appeal to those who are in positions of authority and who are reluctant to give up those positions. This book is designed for those who, for the past 2,000 years, have been willing to let the seed of my inner teachings grow within their lifestreams.
If you were not ready, you simply could not have read what I have said in the first parts of this book. Therefore, I hope that you will accept with your outer mind that you are indeed one of my own. I hope you will accept that I, your Jesus, am now calling you to take up the path of personal Christhood.
