Jesus is not a religion; Jesus is our true identity! Jesus did not come to start a new religion; Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly! Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil: causing human beings to doubt who they were created to be. Human beings were made in the image and likeness of God. “What is man that thou dost care for him, and the son of man that thou dost care for him? Yet thou hast made him little less than God, and dost crown him with glory and honor. Thou hast given him dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet” Psalm 8:4-6 (RSV)
We are made in the image of God. We are made in the likeness of God. So why do we let religion tell us we are something less? I propose it is because religion has been taken over by the enemy and adversary and fallen angels who disguise themselves as light.
“Come out of her, my people” Revelation 18:4
Come out of false religion and counterfeit spirituality! I was fooled for a long time. Jesus set me free! Ask to know Most High God intimately! Allow Lord God to fill you with his perfect Love! Only then can you begin to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. We cannot love what we do not know! We cannot love without receiving the Higher Love of God first!
I have come to the shocking realization that many are in bondage to religion and don’t know the Real Most High God. I am coming to the conclusion that many in religion are actually worshiping a counterfeit. Jesus said that signs would accompany those who believe: cast out demons; speak in new tongues; any deadly thing will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover (Mark 16:17).
I grew up in a very religious Lutheran family and I was never taught this. I fell away from religion until a personal crisis in 1998 when I had a profound spiritual experience. I had no reference for the experience so I sought the truth in eastern religions. But when I got to the core of each religion, I found the same dogma and doctrine, and not freedom. I came full circle and returned to Christianity with new eyes and a new perspective, a mystical, direct knowing of God perspective. But I found that religiosity has corrupted the Truth of Jesus and his teaching. There is so much doctrinal disagreement and accusations of false teaching and fighting over eschatology and theology. It is ridiculous how divergent and conflicting religion has become. I finally said, “enough is enough” I am going back to the basics and go direct to Jesus.
Jesus said, “follow me” “come to me” “I came to give you life and life more abundantly” “with God all things are possible” “you can do everything I did and even greater things”
If the son sets you free you are free indeed! Be free! You do not need a mediator, especially a religious mediator who puts you in religious bondage to dogma, doctrine and theology. Jesus is the only theology any one ever needs! Jesus is the door to know God intimately and personally. Most High God is the giver of all good and perfect gifts from Above, including the kingdom of heaven on earth!!!!
Jesus said, “Behold, I send the promise of the Father upon you; stay until you are clothed with power from on high” Luke 24:49. Jesus baptizes his followers with the Holy Spirit and fire! If you are not in perfect health, perfect harmony, perfect love that casts out all fear, perfect peace that surpasses understanding and fullness of joy, you have not received the promises of the Father, the guaranteed inheritance, the Holy Spirit and the fire. I am afraid that religion is keeping people in bondage to the past and actually keeping them from their True Identity in Jesus and the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The fire is necessary to burn away the effects of the conditioning of the world. The Holy Spirit is necessary to transform your mind into the Higher Mind of Christ and your hard, stoney heart into Jesus’ perfect heart. Without the fire and Holy Spirit you cannot transform by the renewing of the mind. Without the fire and Holy Spirit your body never transfigures into the pure, holy temple for the Holy Spirit. God has given everything but the conditioning of religion and the world has led to a belief system that filters out the amazing inheritance of God.
“Examine yourself…for anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died” 1 Cor 11:28
“Examine yourselves, to see whether you are holding to your faith. Test yourselves. Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in you? –unless indeed you fail to meet the test!…we cannot do anything against the truth, but only for the truth” 2 Cor 13:5-8
Jesus is the way to Our Father, the Invisible Most High, the giver of all good endowments and perfect gifts from Above! Jesus is the Truth, the visible manifestation of the Most High. Jesus is the Life of God that can manifest in your body, heart, mind, soul, spirit and life!!! Jesus is our True Identity if we allow the Holy Spirit and fire to burn away the old identity and make us a brand new creation of God!!!! Yes, Lord God, Yes, Yes, Yes!!!!!!!!!!!
“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God”
