What Jesus Is Teaching (Me) Today – 20

…the end

Write what I tell you.

“It is time to say the truth about truth – My truth is not convenient for people that are bound in another truth that is also of Me. Of course that is confusing because when you are bound to something that is true for you, you do not easily embrace another truth, does that make either the former or the latter truth false?

“Did I not speak through Jay in the flesh these words: ‘I am the way the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father except by me’ and was I not speaking through Jay when he said, ‘You have seen me, you have seen the Father’ and was John lying when he quoted Jay as saying that the words he, Jay, spoke were not him speaking, but the Father in him; and that the words he spoke and the miracles he performed were not him, i.e., Jesus, speaking and doing, but I AM doing them through him?

“Now then consider, was John lying when he quoted Jesus as saying that any individual would be given the same ability to say and do the things that are not that individual, but Me, I AM, living in whoever would believe enough to also want I AM to take up abode in them and therefore be one with Me and be My beloved children, living in My presence and power?

“Those in (city deleted), just as you and all others in the flesh, are afflicted with selective hearing; I confirmed to you that what they heard was from Me, but they are believing an isolated truth. Does this mean they are wrong or that I AM sending you as a voice of correction? NO! What you will both learn from this is that I not only have them and you in My heart, but they like to quote Bible verses – therefore, give them John 10:16 and let them do their mulling over that, in the LIGHT of it being what I AM have spoken through My beloved Son.

“Now, I want you to be in peace about what I have shown you. Yes you can still go to (city deleted); do I withhold from you what you want? What is it you want, what has been put in your heart more than anything else? YES, and you can also provide another Bible verse to help them continue on in the work I have given them and not to be distracted by the work I have given you.”

………

I reluctantly had to stop the flow because I didn’t know what verse – and at that moment the phone rang and a brother and I had a refreshing time together; what ended that conversation – I told him I had to go – were these words that he said quickly:

Sometimes you have to plow your own ground.

“I know that you, like I, want what Jesus wanted and said, ‘My meat is to do the will of my Father’ and that doesn’t mean we aren’t supposed to bless those who are on a different path than what you or I have been called to be on, but to not care about pleasing others, but just wanting the Father’s will.

“Over the last several months I’ve been shown that the question you shared with me, ‘what now,’ cannot be a formula except for those who are willing to put all their thoughts and desires on the line each moment.”

I interrupted and told him I had to read something to him and I read the part of the paragraph above that I had just been given: “My truth is not convenient for people that are bound in another truth that is also of Me. Of course that is confusing because when you are bound to something that is true for you, you do not easily embrace another truth, does that make either the former or the latter truth false?”

“Yeah, man,” he said, “I’m finding those who are most resistant to hearing all of what Daddy has to say to them because they are carrying bunches of baggage that have come along with the truth they’ve also received. So they still hear his voice, but only as it fits into their own doctrinal position.”

I said, David, I gotta go and hung up.

“What now, Daddy/Mommy/Spirit, you know my heart …is this ‘meat’ verse the one?” I received the okay to look it up …I’m sure you already know it, (name deleted), John 4:34.

Here’s what came next: “There are millions of people who need to hear the word I have given to your brothers and sisters in (city deleted). They need to renounce their rejection of what I have shown you to do and say so that they do not put up a barrier to the power I AM willing to pour out over them.

“Encourage them to go in the path they have been given, but not to allow selective hearing to cause them to blaspheme against what I AM giving you and for you to prepare for those who I will now open the floodgates to come to you who want My truth, but not the baggage that so many Christians and others insist upon delivering with that isolated truth.

“You are to continue in dialogue with your brother, but going to (city deleted) at this time would be a distraction for you both. Reiterate My offer through you to give him aid to get his book published; you rightly have discerned My purposes.”

I have clarity for this moment, (name deleted) and so do you. To use your words, “I AM PUMPED!” Just like one of the Mormon stories I love to tell, I’ve got my marching orders …starting with a funeral director – who is about to be brought to LIFE!

Thanks for being a vessel of love and grace, my brother, I sense that someday soon we will be brought together for whatever and the sense of that goes beyond my help with the book and your willingness to be Daddy’s vessel to help me when I sense the need for it to come through you.

I renounce everything that is not the desires and purposes of our Daddy and by and through the blood of Jesus I move and have my being.

I love you brother and am watching and waiting to see how all of this stuff unfolds into the perfect plan of which we are both a part.

What Jesus Is Teaching (Me) Today – 19

Next Step: Understanding the Shift in Identity

Woman becomes Mother. A shift in identity.

NOTE: What follows is very complicated and yet …it is the way that was provided for me to get beyond some serious blocks that were holding me back.

Jay started our session this morning by telling me that I was causing people to stumble over something about him and, not to forget, his insistence regarding the equality of the other nine around the table and me, with him; …and the reason some people were missing the importance of the equality among all eleven of us.

…at the same time please grasp the following, which is NOT intended to be as patronizing as I’m sure it seems: It is only the point of view I have been given and the tool I’ve learned to not get embroiled in wanting to argue with the points of view that seem to differ from mine is twofold and that is to say, over and over UNTIL the urge to argue has left me: “Interesting point of view, I have this point of view and BOTH are true” …now jump quickly to the end of this chapter for the statement in bold and quotation marks and then come back.

Are you? Can you be? Will you be?

I need to stop right here and explain the reactions of some of “my” readers to the concept that all of the others around the table, plus yours truly, are equal with what they believe to be the, one and only, the unique, Jesus.

It seems that no matter how strongly I emphasize that I’m not trying to get anyone to change their beliefs – and that the group of ten, including Jay, are all in my imagination (a picture, a visualization in my mind) and, yes, they have taken on a reality …a life all their own, so to speak, which, although, is still in my mind, they have become quite real; AND, YET AGAIN, I SAY, that since you can’t begin to decipher half of what is in your own mind, how on earth do you think you can come to a conclusion (judgment) about what is in mine?

One Source many manifestations.

“Where some of our brothers and sisters are missing you,” interjected Yogi, just now, in his usual gentle manner, is what we all share in common – the ten of us in this particular manifestation, which is partly in your mind and partly in a dimension outside of your conscious awareness, but not your sub/super consciousness, as you have defined both.”

“This is the distinction,” added Lahti, “which they are not absorbing and with which Jay opened this session, you have deliberately and carefully commanded the subconscious and superconscious parts of your mind to meet with us when you are not consciously aware of it …so that we can support the totality of you being in direct connection and under the control of our SPIRIT-PARENT at all times.

“Beyond, that,” Zoe contributed, “correct me if I’m wrong, Jay, but what you were saying is what some of Brad’s readers are failing to grasp is what you had said in your appearance to that group of followers shortly after your resurrection – that is, ‘when the Spirit overtakes you, you will be filled with the same kind of power that I was filled with and do the same things I did and more, because people will no longer see you, but see me.’”

Change your identity from the inside. A new birth from Spirit.

“That’s certainly a part of it, Zoe,” Jay replied, “but the point Brad has been given to make and has done so over and over, is that the term ‘witnessing’ applies to people seeing our SPIRIT-PARENT, rather than Brad or anyone else whom our SPIRIT-PARENT has immersed in and of HER/HIM/ITSELF, is no longer that former person, but a whole new identity seen as one English term puts it, the ‘Christ within’ …not the power to tell others about me.”

“A difficult concept,” Moe chimed in, “one that I certainly couldn’t grasp until that body I used to occupy was burned in the funeral pyre – you should be greatly encouraged, Brad, because you came away from the limiting religion which is controlled by the same power of a collection of humans who started the entire system of Babylon, which seems so good to many humans and from one point of view is, but as an example of extreme love the I AM interrupted.”

“Yes!” Mose exclaimed with his right thumb pointed upward while slapping his left hand on the table, “Brad, you really need to see that one of the ancient definitions of the term ‘Babylon’ has to do with human babble, related to any and all human understanding, which includes, but isn’t limited to religion, science, philosophy, the healing and other arts which, to use the term you have been given and use so often, are nothing more than shadows of reality …and which does not mean that much cannot be learned from them.”

Human systems are just pieces of the puzzle.

“Gentlemen,” Sid addressed us all, “I believe we have given the man enough to chew on for this time together.”

“Well said,” came from several, if not all of them …I was trying to put it all in a cohesive question for the group, when Jay said:

“Just go with it …you’ll quote us all perfectly and correctly – and maybe instead of arguing or turning a deaf ear they will be prompted to ask questions, hopefully of our SPIRIT-PARENT, but even of you, Brad …questions, that before you answer, you’ll take to our SPIRIT-PARENT for individual direction.”

“If I may, for just a moment, make a point,” Baba held up his right hand for a few seconds and when it was obvious that he had our attention, he proceeded with this, to me, mind-blower: “I believe that I alone among the nine of us that Jay has gathered with him to meet with you and help you see things from the perspective we have of living in a dimension that is not only in your mind, Brad, but a parallel existence that you have been fortunate enough to have tapped into for glimpses beyond what the conscious mind of any human can achieve –

Are you the lion or the faithful? Don't we all play each roll?

“Let’s see, as I started to say, I believe that I was the only one of us when still in physical, human form, who attributed deity to Jay and saw the value of his suffering and death for mankind and his resurrection as a powerfully spiritual reality. I carried those beliefs into this group and had some difficulty in totally accepting the equality Jay offered you and us based on Jay’s death and resurrection alone.

“What I am saying is, all of us here went through some persecution and rejection at the hands of the people whom we felt we were called to bring a newly revealed message from our SPIRIT-PARENT, but which of the rest of us purposed to die as a supreme sacrifice so that mankind would see it as a completed work of the love of God and then arose again to prove the power?

“Not only do all the religions for which we are blamed, miss this important fact and I can attest to the fact that the one I purposed to bring into existence, Baha’i, most of the present day followers still miss it. Many Christians do get it, but miss the import of equality that Jay insisted upon in his human incarnation and has given you a new impetus to proclaim.”

Available to all, or just some?

“It is safe to say, I believe,” said Jere, that each of us here are held as more advanced than any human being – and, while in a sense that is true, it misses the point of possible destiny of equality for any individual willing to accept it; and, by denying the possibility most are able to avoid the discipline necessary to come into the reality of ascension into it.

Sid jumped out of his chair, startling everyone, slapping the palms of his hands down on the table, “Jere, that’s a perfect expression of the truth and that should encourage you, Brad, while you don’t emphasize it, the reason you get glimpses of what is going on in dimensions beyond the 3rd dimension or physical plane is because of your discipline of applying what you learn – the simplicity of constantly demanding that all obstacles in both/either conscious and/or unconscious parts of the mind being in connection with our SPIRIT-PARENT 24 hours a day, to be dissolved and remembering to return to the cone of light as well continually asking ‘what now,’ as well as all the other things you are given by our SPIRIT-PARENT to do and say.”

“It is time for me to add something that may be difficult for anyone claiming to follow my teaching,” Moo added, “but before landing in this dimension and long before being in this manifestation around your conference table, Brad, what I missed was not the equality with Jay as a human …and here I must confess this is what so many who claim that I am “the” prophet they are following and especially those who engage in violence that I specifically do not condone, are missing is that I had no trouble understanding the equality with my dear brother Jay as a human, as to teaching and prophetic utterance, but what has been overwhelmingly difficult to accept has also been the same thing the others have described – equality with this purpose that came birthed in Jay to suffer and die for all of us – the work of gaining righteousness truly has been and is finished – the discipline is in learning to accept it and realize that no matter what we do in the physical realm earns us nothing …our SPIRIT-PARENT is telling me to say this to you.”

Does the angel come to judge or free you from your judgement?

What now?

What I just received was to finish this series/book by copying an open letter I sent to a group in a city with which I was scheduled to meet. I am to edit out only the name of the individual in that group to which it was addressed and the city.

That is to be Chapter 20 and the ending. May this book bless every reader and may each attribute those things which are meaningful as coming from our SPIRIT-PARENT and to be careful about coming to any conclusion (judgment) about those things that don’t resonate with you. This was for me and I am sharing it as my experience which may or may not be for you – remember and Jay is nodding at me intently to include this statement:

“JUDGE NOT, SO THAT YOU AVOID BEING JUDGED.”

What Jesus Is Teaching (Me) Today – 18

Moving on to Step 3: Be in the Light of SOURCE

Are you ready for the next step?

I felt free to end #17 with a note that seemed horribly arrogant to me, at the time, but I received a green light from SPIRIT and a “thumbs up” response from Jay and the rest of the “group of ten.” I also went back directly to our SPIRIT-PARENT to make sure I wasn’t getting something “off-base.”

The pattern interrupt what now “tool,” as Ryan Bruce refers to it, brought about this response: “Let go of your judgment and move on to Step 3.”

That note said: And precept upon precept built on it by misinformed Bible teachers and commentaries! Which I had keyed off my assertion that the part of the 8th chapter of Acts that relates to the identity shift that happens when SPIRIT overtakes a human willing to be changed was mistranslated in most, if not all, English versions and was convoluted further by Bible teachers and commentaries based on a religious perception of what I dared to refer to as mistranslation.

How dare I, correct, who am I to know such a thing? I have no degree or certificate that would allow me to make any such claim related to Biblical sources.

My revelation about mistranslation comes from the same SOURCE that just told me to quit judging what came through me as arrogance and that, because it didn’t come from “reason.” …but as a flash, again, of revelation from our SPIRIT-PARENT.

Come on Brad...Speak Up!

Jay just got my attention that the group of ten wants to meet with me. Mose was speaking authoritatively: “You have been given the ability to help those who have the eyes to see and ears to hear understand what you have also been given to understand. Your Boss is our Boss, don’t shrink from saying what you’ve been given.”

My next question was directed to the group, “excuse me, but each of you weren’t exactly welcomed with open arms when you started receiving revelation from the Boss, as you are now referring to HER/HIM/IT. The people in your own religious persuasions resisted what you understood at the time and, in some cases rather violently; am I wrong about my perception of this?”

“That’s the point, Mose is making, none of us shrank from what we had to say,” Zoe pointed out.

I told them, somewhat defensively, something to the effect that I begged to differ with them. Based on my perception of the historical record, all ten of them developed into speaking much more strongly as they matured in the message they were given, but not at first.

_________

When you finally cry out for help, in that moment of desperation...the answer always comes.

If we go back to how this message of ten advisors began in me, we have to go all the way back to my own religious experience that started when I yelled out in desperation at the ripe old age of 24 …badly hung over from a night of little sleep and the consumption of a large quantity of alcohol …then attempting to come out of it with a lot of coffee and some Benzedrine tablets – and getting so goofy that I was terrified that I might be going insane and finally yelling, “Jesus if you are real, take over my life.”

From that beginning, I thought I had become a Christian and even declared that is what I was …until I became increasingly aware that the Jesus with whom I had an experience was different from the Jesus upon which many Christians base their beliefs. Not that I didn’t adopt many of the beliefs of Christianity, because I did. It was 1957 when I began to call myself a Christian. It wasn’t until almost thirty-five years later, after having gone through the requisite training so that I was acceptable for ordination by a worldwide independent missionary organization and was licensed to preach, teach, baptize, officiate at weddings and funerals (so said my certificate) that I finally obeyed the call from “The Boss” to come out of it and all its trappings and, thereafter, refused the label of Christian.

If we asked Jesus to wear bandages and clothes...everyone could see him.

Once out I began to easily talk with Buddhists, Hindus, Jews and Muslims about Jesus …the only people that (with few exceptions) didn’t want to hear what I had to say about the living Jesus were Christians.

It was Jesus, whom I refer to now as Jay, I hope not only for shock value, but as a means to share the intimacy with him and the other nine in the group that he assembled – IN MY IMAGINATION!

He and I first began our relationship after I stumbled onto the words n the New Testament, “Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever” and thus began having conversations with him.

Almost everything I had learned about Jay in what I refer to as his physical manifestation as a man – was based upon the words that were attributed to him in the first five books of the New Testament and the last book as he revealed himself to John in what is called the Revelation of Jesus Christ.

Go Brad Go...the light is GREEN!!!!

Many of those quotes didn’t make complete sense to me until after I refused to any longer identify myself as a Christian; which didn’t happen until sometime in the early 1990s sometime after I had already began refusing to be called “pastor” or have anything to do with organized Christianity – this later expanded to not accepting invitations to share with any group that insisted upon referring to itself as Christian whether of the unorganized or disorganized variety as well.

Now then, those of you who are troubled by continued references to “my ten advisors” and their equality with Jay need to understand three vital ingredients to what I’ve been saying: Vital ingredient #1- It was Jay that introduced me to the concept of equality with the others and me. #2= All of us (Baba, Jay, Jere, Lahti, Moe, Moo, Mose, Sid, Yogi, Zoe and I) took it to our (your and our) SPIRIT-PARENT for confirmation to continue writing in this vein. #3- That I was sufficiently troubled by the almost violent reactions of the few Evangelical Christians left in “my” audience – that I wrote nothing for almost three days until I was given the reason and given the “green light” to continue.

The reason I was troubled was because I had the very same view related to the uniqueness of Jay and had initially referred to him as the “Chairman of the Group,” until he instructed me to stop.

Are both sides of the equation balanced?

I am permitted to share this little bit of additional information. The writer of the Gospel of John, the 4th book in the New Testament made two things quite clear (to me), in the original language, that the Creative Spirit part of Elohiym who created everything, became the human being the world refers to as Jesus or by one of the Hebraic equivalents, such as Y’shua. This same writer said that any individual who received this information as truth would have the same identity as Jesus, in fact be joint heirs as beloved children of God …the aforementioned EQUALITY.   This revolves around another truth which the writer of the Gospel Luke and the book of Acts (third and fifth books, respectively) of the New Testament to which I referred earlier as mistranslated in the English versions.

That truth stated clearly is that when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you will no longer have your own identity but people will see only Jesus in you …and as another New Testament writer, the Jew, Saul-become-Paul put it: “It is no longer I but Christ.”

I’m being encouraged by all ten, including Jay, to “sit down and shut up” …my little paraphrase. I’m no longer troubled, but excited about the unlimitlessness available to any individual who can get beyond his or her beliefs about Jay/Jesus/Y’shua and his uniqueness to getting overwhelmed by the Creator of the Universe to give them their own virgin birth – crazy what? The other nine and I have received that and Jay has declared us equals.

Is that you Brad?

One more thing …and with this I close. If this concept is still troublesome for you, you can simply write it off as being only a point of view, which you don’t feel like adopting – nobody will hold it against you especially I – or you can remember that this is all in my IMAGINATION so why let it bother you?

Step 3, by the way: Visualizing (IMAGINATION) is being in the cone (the way I see it) of the bright white (and therefore encompassing all colors) light that is 60’ in diameter and which extends out into space all the way to the SOURCE from Whom it emanates …the “Light of the World.”

There are myriad other possibilities, just one of which is to ask if you too can be an only begotten child of the SPIRIT-PARENT Whom Jay insists and insisted was the one who spoke/speaks through him and performed all the miracles he was noted for performing – or you can choose to believe they’re just a figment of the writers’ imaginations who wrote about them.

Okay, okay …guys this chapter is finished – #19 is coming up.
