Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law Romans 13:8
Love is not an activity of the mind but an Activity of God. This essence streams into substance, and constantly pours itself out, as perfection in form and action. Love is the realization of Christ Jesus in a person, place or condition; love is perfection made visible. It can only express Joy, peace, and an outpouring of those feelings to all creation unconditionally. It asks nothing for itself. It takes no notice of what has been given in the past. Brother Paul in his letter to the Corinth paints for us the qualities of love in such sparkling colors of the rainbow; he passes the light of love through the prism of human mind, and it refracts into the different colors: love is patient, kind, not boastful, not proud, not rude, not self-seeking, not easily angered, keeps no record of wrong, does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres and never fails (1 Corinthians 13:4-8).
All we need is Love. Love fulfills all things. Love embraces all things. Love heals all things, and Love transforms all things. The nature of love is infinite expression. However, the truth to know is that you cannot possess Love until you set it free. You cannot move into holy relationship with anyone or anything until you give up all trace of need to possess it.
Thus we owe each other love, not human love that is conditional and very limited, but divine love that embraces both the just and the unjust. Human love is much divided; she sees prostitution in a person, but not in ‘me’. She labels a person a thief or a terrorist, but not ‘my children’. She gives herself where a similar gesture will be reciprocated. In other words, human love gives because she seeks a reward in return. However, divine love looks at the facets of human love and says, ‘‘No! I am undivided. I see myself everywhere; where the prisoner stands, I am there; I am there where the prostitute in the brothel stands; I am there in the prison where the robber stands to eyesight”. Divine love, Christ Jesus made visible, is never divided from Himself, the one infinite presence, permeating the infinite universe.
Therefore, as the image and likeness of the living God, our function on earth is to identify each other as spirit. We must behold in every person, place or condition Christ Jesus, the perfection of God made visible; the substance out of which this infinite universe was formed as the reality of our being. Believe this and reject every other thing that your five senses are testifying to. Certainly, the things of the world will gather around and against you for acceptance, but be conscious that they are not of God, and that there is no Law of God to maintain and sustain them.
Your five senses will always throw all sorts of trumped-up charges at you: The body is aging, the body is in pain, is lacking, is sick; there is viral outbreak ravaging a city; there is famine in the world, bloodshed out there on the street and television, and out there is a cheat, robber, kidnapper, prostitute, terrorist, gay, lesbian, pedophile. These and almost infinite verities of charges the five senses confront you with, with one sole aim – to make you accept a presence other than Christ, even when Christ assures us, “I am the Alpha and Omega; the beginning and the ending, which is, which was and which is to come, the Almighty.”, Revelation 22:13. He alone fills all space and time, and indeed the only presence and power here, there, everywhere.
Therefore, to believe the five senses is to deny that Christ is the Alpha and Omega; to be indebted to your neighbor by believing that he or she is a mortal being. Right there you have pierced Christ, and are separated from Him, as the branch cut off from the Tree of life, that withers and dies; right there you are the prodigal, in a divided sense of self. However, in your fidelity to the first commandment to love God with all your heart, mind, and soul; to acknowledge God in all your ways; to acknowledge ‘hear oh! Israel the Lord thy God is one’ (Mark 12:29)– and the only presence – also to love your neighbor as yourself by beholding Christ Jesus in your neighbor, you come under grace and Christ expresses through you as the “peace be still” to every storm or appearance that the five senses have brought to you for acceptance, and every storm dissolves.
For instance, your false sense of vision may behold out there a robber, kidnapper, rapist, pedophile, terrorist, prostitute, or a dictator – the false states of consciousness in which ekene ezeike could have expressed at some time or other, unaware that Christ constitutes his being – and instantly you have relinquished your God‐given dominion to ekene ezeike, the person you have labeled a robber, kidnapper, rapist, pedophile, terrorist, prostitute or a dictator, by implicitly telling him, “Eh! you can come and rob, kidnap, rape, defile, kill, seduce or oppress me whenever you are ready”, because of your acceptance of mortality in a person or imperfection in a condition; because you have violated the second divine commandment of Christ to love your neighbor as yourself and have born false witness against the child of God, by accepting a presence apart from God, by believing that there is a robber, kidnapper, rapist, pedophile, terrorist, prostitute, or a dictator in the person of ekene ezeike where only Christ Jesus is.
Christ in you the hope of glory, Colossians 1:27. The whole purpose of the gospel is to present everyman perfect in Christ Jesus (Colossians 1:28). Therefore, as we behold Christ Jesus everywhere in the saint and the sinner alike, we are fulfilling that purpose. It is only the first-borne and not the creature (Colossians 1:15) that walks this earth as Omnipresence. Therefore, there is no mortal anywhere, except Christ Jesus. It is only the firstborn that is appearing where through the glass darkly you are beholding the seven billion creatures, the second born. It is as we recognize the firstborn of every creature, Christ the hope of our glory, as the only presence and substance of all form, even where any creature seems to appear, that the Glory of God is revealed. Always, Christ realized in human consciousness reveals the perfection and the kingdom of God here and now. Christ realized in consciousness is the fulfillment of the kingdom of God in us.
Christ is Omnipresent, filling all space and time. This is the bread you cast upon the waters of human consciousness that returns to you as perfection; that reveals the kingdom of heaven here and now. He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and end of your life. So there is no way you can leave off Christ in yourself or your neighbor without experiencing friction, without facing damnation. The awareness of Christ Jesus everywhere is the divine Will of God. It is Christ or perish in your ignorance of His presence where you stand or where your neighbor stands.
Consequently, deny Christ to anyone – even anyone you might have labeled a rapist, pedophile, terrorist, tyrant, dictator of some sort or the other – you deny Christ for yourself, and you are out of the kingdom of God. It is the recognition of Jesus Christ as the reality of your being and of your neighbor’s being that takes you out of the hell of mortal sense into His kingdom; out of the darkness of a separate self into the infinite light of His Glory. When Christ reminds us, “yee are the Light of the world”, (Mathew 5:14) we are to simply accept that we are the light, and to accept that our neighbor is also the light, regardless of how shattering or luring the appearance that confronts us may pose. As we love our neighbor as ourselves, by accepting that they too are the ‘light of the world’, darkness is expelled, perfection is restored, the seeming appearance is dissolved, and our debt to our neighbor is paid in full.
Christ Jesus reveals that He is in you and you are in Him. He is also the ‘least of these my brethren’, Mathew 25:40. In other words, he is everybody and everything individualized– appearing as the minerals in the earth beneath, the blade of the grass, mountains, oceans, firmament above, stars in the galaxies, every creeping thing, beast of the field, fish in the sea, birds in the sky; every man, woman, and child. Moreover, in this awareness of the infinite nature of Christ Jesus, who is the reality of your being, and your neighbor, saint or sinner, are you revealing harmony that is ever-present but veiled only to the mortal sense, our limited concept about the infinite Christ presence.
The Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of man is the foundation of Christ’s teaching. This is revealed in Christ’s remark to Mary Magdalene to go and inform His brethren that He has risen, “I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to My God, and to your God”. The good news is that Christ Jesus is your true identity. You are divine, a spiritual being, the offspring of God, and not a human being; you are not the natural man that the society and education affirm you are. Christ Jesus our savior reveals that He is in you and you are in Him, and Christ is Spirit. He is your true self; thus you are a spiritual being. You must believe this. Therefore, please sow to the infinite, invisible Christ, the only presence here and now; please reject the belief in humanhood, that you were ever conceived in the womb of a woman. Such person (ekene ezeike, the man of flesh and blood) does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned, 1 Corinthian 2:14. You must accept that you are spirit; you must accept the gift of God, Christ Jesus as your true Self. This is to love God.
Moreover, you have been bought with a price, the Blood of the Lamb, the Life of God, Christ as your only Life. Holy Spirit through brother Paul reveals, “For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s, 1 Corinthian 6:20. You are not a mortal being any more than the society, education, culture, have heretofore made you believe. All concepts about your human nature please take to the cross of Calvary right now and crucify, by realizing that you are a Spiritual being, one with the Holy One of Israel. There is no you and Christ Jesus, that is ‘twoness’. There is only Christ Jesus appearing in, through and as you, and you are one with Christ Jesus.
This fleeting world is always your adversary, presenting to you, Spirit in mortal forms. Nevertheless, you will surely know it. It is the divine will of God that you be the Christ, in your conscious oneness with Christ Jesus. Scripture reveals, “that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”, Philippians 2:11. To confess the name of Jesus Christ is to realize that God is the only Father and that Christ Jesus constitutes individual being, in heaven and on earth, in and beyond time and space. Holy Spirit through brother Paul further reveals, “That in the dispensation of the fullness of times, He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the council of His will”, Ephesians 1:10. In beholding the everywhereness of Christ Jesus, you have fulfilled your debt to creation and you are loving your neighbor supremely.
Please give up every belief in a mortal form (ekene ezeike the natural man that is not the child of God); please sow only to the infinite, invisible Spirit, Christ that is ever-present, that is before Abraham to reap life everlasting. Love the invisible, immortal self of every form you see, by seeing Christ Jesus in them. This is to love your neighbor as yourself. It may appear difficult at first, as you begin to learn how to walk in the Holy Ghost, but because it is the Father’s gift to us, certainly your legs and knees shall be steadied, and you walk into Christ. This is the narrow path to the kingdom of heaven. With man, it is impossible of attainment but with God all things are possible, Mathew 19:23-30. It is the will of God that you sow to the infinite, invisible Christ; it is the will of God to give you the kingdom – Christ Jesus immortal body of light realized in consciousness is the kingdom of God expressing. Thus in your conscious oneness with Him do you dwell in the kingdom of God here and now. Our Most Loving Father speaks to us in the eternal now from mount Zion, “This is my begotten Son in whom I am well pleased, hear yee Him”, Mathew 3:17. In other words, accept Christ Jesus forever without the blink of an eyelash as your ‘true identity’, regardless of any seeming persecution that comes your way to deny the Truth of being.
Furthermore, this kind of love far exceeds conditional human love, that rejects the son of God in some people that she has labeled sinners or infidels; it exceeds even the human righteousness of the Pharisees that is limited to only human goodness, which sees good and justifies it, but condemns evil. This is the narrow path to the kingdom of heaven here and now. Your fidelity is to reject every idea that is not testifying to the Truth of being, Christ Jesus the reality of individual being. Your sole goal is to acknowledge God in all your ways, by realizing that our Most Loving Father constitutes individual being – thereby allowing the Holy One of Israel to take jurisdiction over your affairs – and His divine love flows, revealing the perfection underlying all forms.
Consciousness must expand to the Fatherhood of God and brotherhood of man. This commandment reveals the kingdom of God where you stand. You must love God, and your neighbor as yourself. This is a command and there is nothing we can do about it but to keep it. Failing to do so, you suffer from it, because you cannot push away the kingdom of God from appearing on earth, by hiding your candle of light under the bushel of mortality, or even that of your neighbor, by believing that they are mortals. You must let your light shine before men so that they may glorify your Father, who is in heaven. To glorify the Father is to reveal His kingdom on earth; to declare, “Let there be light in the face of darkness”. Mortality is darkness, and your declaration of ‘let there be light’ is to accept your neighbors’ spiritual nature and to realize that the place ‘where thou standest is Holy ground’ – the gate of heaven – is to seek the kingdom of God with all your heart.
Thus you must love our Father with all your heart, soul, and mind, and you must love your neighbor as yourself. Men will glorify your Father in heaven as soon as you come to the full realization that man is the temple of God, that Christ Jesus constitutes their being. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God; the same was in the beginning with God. All things were MADE by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it but could not do so, John 1:1-5.
