BEHOLD “I” STAND AT THE DOOR AND KNOCK.
Child of the Living God, you came into expression as freely as the coming of dawn; a gift from the Region of the UN--manifest. For a few short weeks I held it fluttering in the Soul of me, and then released it. Like a golden mist it enveloped me, and finally poured out into manifestation as the soft dazzle of azure light on a silver mirror lake.
A transcript of a message given by Anthony den Hartog. Snr.
I again stand at the door of your heart, bringing back to your remembrance that Christ, the Spirit of God your permanent I---dentity is Present where you are right now. It is wonderful. It means if I look out from here through human eyes I cannot see you the way you are known. With human eyes I will be aware of people, young people middle--aged people, black people, white people and old people healthy people and sick people. You never can tell what or who you are going to meet up with next. Do you hear me?
In a crowd of 500 people there are many varieties of people; all having a particular purpose for being in this crowd, but in reality there is but one “I”, the substance hidden behind all form. However, the moment the Spirit of God enters my Soul, I begin to see you differently. My vision has changed and my eye is single. I no longer see you as a sinner, sick and lonely, I begin to see the Christ, your true i--dentity through the facade of personal sense. It is wonderful! I recognise that you are not just a human being; you are the offspring of the Living God full of Grace and Truth, the Being of Light, the only begotten of the Father. I begin to discern a glint in your eye which is wholly spiritual. I see something behind the veil of the appearances. I recognise your true life which is Christ, the Image living behind the veil of appearances. You are wonderful, created in true holiness and righteousness.
When the Spirit of Christ Jesus enters my being, I begin to loose all sense of male or female personality, young or old sick or well. Illumination as to what is real and true dissolves all material tie; I do see your spiritual identity, the eternal offspring of the Living Father. Because I see your spiritual identity, I also awaken your true being. You begin to feel a whole new experience and to a measure I remove the veil of self--preservation from you. You start to feel comfortable with me, for you too discern that I do not judge you. Now you can also cry Abba Father, I am accepted in the beloved. It is wonderful!
You see, the Christ Life you are in God is dormant in our Humanity. Humanity is but an expression of a self hood separate and apart from God, expressing itself as a mask, known as the personality. In other words, humanity is a Phantom without ordination or law to maintain its existence.
- The word person or personality in Latin is Persona, meaning a mask or a veil; it represents the Satan, the accuser of the brethren.
- Persona hides the true Christ--Self until someone or something awakens it. Do you hear Me?
- In ancient Greece people of noble birth often took part in stage plays and masked party’s to hide their true Identity.
In order to disguise themselves they wore masks, which are exactly what personality means; a false representation of the individual present. In other words, it is a false face, a false attitude towards life. Personality is always playing a part; it is assuming that which it is not; it is a commodity which is bartered for in the public market place. One has only to read the numerous advertisements to find that you can acquire a charming personality for a small amount of money.
The very nature of personality is changeable, because personality is a thing of the emotions, meaning the Adam man. Adam simply means blood in the face, governed by the false sense of independency, but it is all but a lie, it has no life, no law and no ordination.
Personality is the mask of imaginary being, the dream of Adam as a separate selfhood! Personality is basically a negative emotion. It carries with it all the complexes and inhibitions belonging to the character it assumes.
Personality comes under the law of heredity, environment, opportunity and chance; it functions from the plane of the relative, thereby operating under the vicious influences of all relative emotions.
Personality believes: because the fathers have sinned, the evil shall be visited on countless generations. Personality’s inherent power is the knowledge of both good and evil. The reason I give you this lesson is so that you can learn to distinguish between personality and individuality.
We had some lessons on this during our seminar in Sorrento in the White hall guest house. If you like to get these teaching tapes please ask for them and we will send them to you.
Individuality transcends all sense of personal feeling and desire. In other words: “When Christ which is your life is realised and you open the door of your heart the personality begins to die out to its own importance”
Jesus calls this apocalypse, the renting of the veil. After the appearing of Christ in us we shall know that we can no longer call any one Father or Mother.
In reality there is only One Father and that is God. The Christ Jesus Consciousness into which you have risen no longer believes in the laws of heredity. Neither do you believe or accept any other Power. Consciousness or Being---ness is the only Power and it is always wonderful! God the Father (your own consciousness, the Word made Flesh) is the only sustaining and maintaining Spiritual Power, upholding all things by its own Word and Divine intent.
Individuality, in contradistinction to personality acknowledges no dominion outside itself. Individuality is Christ, Messiah of all, created in the Image and likeness of the only true God, the Father of All.
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
- Individuality has the basic same substance we call Consciousness or “I” ness.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. 20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen. (KJV)
I like to continue to bring to you the way of attainment into the same Mind that Jesus ascended into Christ Consciousness, so that we as Christians can be of a positive help to others who are in dare need. The goal we already know is attaining the mind that was also in Christ Jesus. It means that we all must attain to Spiritual Illumination or God realisation and that is not done through doctrine or reason. The way we describe it is of no importance as long as we understand the Word of God to be the Way to Enlightenment, not Religious Dogma or books on Psychology.
Books although wonderful in many ways, cannot bring us back to our original Being, the I AM of God. The reason we are on the Path is that we may receive Spiritual Light. Jesus said to us that there are very few that find this way of enlightenment, for in it we may loose all our familiar attachments to this world.
We can see that this Way is not an easy thing to find and walk on. In order to find the Way of Life, we must see only the ascended Jesus who is the one who fully transcended the death realm. We should not let that statement go by without searching.
Why did Jesus say these things to us? If we don not understand His teaching we too can miss the Way of Righteousness in which there is Life and in the pathway thereof there is no death.
We must look at the one who went and prepared the Realm of Now for us. In preparation to walk in the Spirit Jesus made it clear that we cannot add to a vessel already full and we cannot put an new patch on an old garment.
There must therefore be a place in consciousness where we will discard all the doctrines and beliefs we have know in our religious trainin.
This is not easy, I know!
We have to empty our self out from all our former teachings. The Hebrews in their synagogues where taught about God and among the things they were taught is this. If you would obey the Law and attended the synagogue you would please God, but Jesus said that this belief in all wrong.
God has no pleasure in your sacrifices. God our Father is not pleased with our external worship. Jesus took us out of the demands of the law and brought those who believe his word under Grace, not requiring anything of them at all in the form of ritual.
The Creature of God!
That what we call the Creature of God is really. “Consciousness” expressed as you and I, Spirit Soul and Body. Consciousness is what I AM.
- Consciousness is life without guilt or fear of death.
- Consciousness is the ever present Life Force expressing It Self as you and I and in fact It expresses It Self as all forms of Life.
Therefore the Word Consciousness is the most important word we must know as human beings.
Consciousness is your permanent identity.
Consciousness is your being--ness as it was in the beginning with God. Although the word consciousness is not in the Bible the meaning of the word means being aware totally, it means, known or felt by one’s inner Self. It is wonderful!
Consciousness is awake and alert, Consciousness is not aware of physicality, it is not aware of body, pain or lack of anything. Consciousness is not asleep or un---conscious as is the mind of flesh, which is not our true Identity.
Consciousness is the only word which describes the Realm of Now where the flowers grow.
Jesus prepared the realm of NOW for us so that we can live and move in His Kingdom with fullness of Life, Joy and Peace. In the realm of Now we no longer are subject to the un-conscious past or fear of the future. When we live consciously as One in the Father God, we do not have to regress to our early childhood memories which usually haunt us if we dwell on them. Jesus died and took these memories of guilt and regret to the Cross. He blotted them out forever. Jesus gave us His Life which is Immortal.
The Life of Christ it is not subject to pain, fear or guilt of the past. The Life of Christ does not fear the future either for there is no future in the realm of Now!
Jesus gave us back the presence, the realm of NOW! It is wonderful!
- · NOW is the feeling of belonging, being one with that we call God or Being, without any haunting memory of past experiences.
- · Being Now is the Consciousness of the New Creation man who has transcended the Physical and the mental realms of existence.
- Being Now is our Conscious sense of Life that can never die, do you hear this?
- · Being one with the all of Life is your heritage! In Christ Jesus as the Only Begotten Being, I am complete. Through His ascension I now have access to the realm of Presence, (the eternal NOW where the flowers grow)
In Jesus I have now come back to the Father Realm, where I can live and move and have my being in total assurance; “I belong”. There is no other Way to the Father but by Jesus, as He died as the last human. Remember, Jesus dissolved the memory of our past, blotting out our human identity by His own innocence of Life.
Now as “I” the creature of God have again access to the realm of being and can live as the offspring of the original I AM.
For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near.
For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Ehp2
I have now returned to my True Identity which is Christ the Image of God. I have awoken out of my dream of separation and Christ is giving me Light.
Eckhart Tolle in his book “The Power of Now” calls this realm of Now or IS!
This book is a great psychological help for those who are not yet born again and do not yet know who they are in Christ Jesus. Tolle explains that we as humans are all identified with what he calls mind, the un-consciousness of past experiences. It is a correct observation. However, I have discovered that the term mind is not known in other languages, such as Dutch or German. Mind of Christ in Dutch means; “gezindheid” it means—a sense of belonging to a present tense Life, which I know to be Consciousness—a sense of life without time and space memories; (God’s Kingdom.)
Eckhart teaches some effective meditative exercises in an attempt to bring us back from the un-conscious mind realm to the realm of NOW or Presence. He claims that eventually peace, pain, and many forms of negation will disappear from our experience. That would be wonderful if this is possible without being born again. I do not aim to be critical of the book Eckhart Tolle wrote, it all helps those who suffer guilt and fear of past life experiences, it is a good psychology.
However is this philosophy possible without Jesus? I don’t think so! I have no doubt that this method will work for some for a time, but eventually those who have not yet known Jesus as the Way into the realm of NOW, will again become un-conscious after that the excitement is over. It is because they do not yet have the witness of the Only Begotten from the dead that it cannot last. First we all have to come to Jesus to be saved from past guilt and fear of death and future judgment.
Do you hear the Voice of Jesus deep within you to be true and right?
I can never deviate from the One who died as the last Adam (the realm of death) rose again and ushered in God’s Presence for all to enter by re—cognition.
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. John18-36-37
We all need to look at the One who rose out of the un-consciousness of Adam, died as the last Adam and lifted us into the realm of Christ, Being One in the Father.
Jesus as the Life giving Spirit of Being, gives us back access to the NOW REALM where we can have Life to the fullest. Do you hear this?
- · The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is not a philosophy of spiritual values. I am showing you the only way to the Now, Jesus is His Name, and it is wonderful.
If any man of woman identifies with this New Creation Realm, where the flowers grow, he or she also finds the true Life expressed out from the invisible Now Realm, it is wonderful.
I agree with Eckhart; the Now Realm IS the Presence of God, but how do you get there? Without the One who rose from the dead you can’t. Jesus said: “I AM THE WAY”.
God’s Presence IS where Life spontaneously flows forth for all eternity, without death in it. “In the way of righteousness is Life and in the pathway thereof is no death.” Pr12:28
In other words, the Realm of IS, IS where only God IS our Life. In the realm of Now there are no opposites (good or evil). Now is the Consciousness of the Father expressed as you and I.
Now is Life as it was in the beginning without any fear of death or dis-ease. The House where Jesus lives Now, you can enter by Grace. Can you hear this? Jesus prepared this realm for you and me to live in; so that “where I am” you may be also. That is what Jesus said.
In the message of the “Light of the world”, Consciousness is the main subject word.
I have not as yet known of any other Christian teachings that have taken this word seriously. I cannot teach any one anything. As you read and listen in silence you might hear the Voice of the risen Jesus and discover that you are becoming consciously aware of the Presence of God. By obeying what you hear in silence you enter the realm of NOW!
The Word that is coming to you is bearing witness within. Consider this as coming from the Holy Ghost, not from a man called Tony.
Religion does not have the word consciousness to describe the original state of Being. Consciousness of Being ‘One’ is the realm we all enjoyed in God before we descended into the lower realms of Physicality and Mental-ism, generated out of the Tree of Knowledge, do you hear?
When mankind became aware of his physicality he thought he was naked and the fear of death was generated. In other words, he lost his Conscious awareness of His Christ Image.
Don’t forget, we all are the Christ Image in truth. It was because through one man’s feeling of nakedness and fear that we all descended into Hell (a moral sense of being separated from the Father).
By his own volition there is no way back to Being, we all need a Savior.
Remember, being conscious of the Presence of God without a sense of guilt fear or impending doom causes eternal life to flow unhindered and fullness of joy is ours. Unfortunately fallen man cannot return by his own volition. In our flesh we do not have the power to do so. We need a redeemer to lift us back to where we were before, it is wonderful, don’t you love Jesus?
Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Heb10.
Remember, man never truly left the bosom of the Father, he only lost his awareness of it and death entered in.
Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also will reject you from being priest for Me; because you have forgotten the law of your God.
“For if by the one man’s offence death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.) Therefore, as through one man’s offence judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. Rom5.
Hades or Hell is the time realm, the place where the man now dwells, subject to every form of curse which eventually leads to death. It means he is unconscious.
In Hell he no longer has the Spirit of Christ in his awareness to maintain and keep him, e.g. he must be born again of the Living Word of God who lives and abides forever.
We know that we can’t enter back into the realm of NOW or IS by our own volition. Only Jesus can lift us back to where we belong. Remember, as long as you try to preserve your own life you will lose it, this is the Law.
Those who consciously recognize who they are in Christ Jesus will gain back eternal life and existence in the Fathers house. We must not judge ourselves un--worthy or accuse others for not being original, for that is what they said about Jesus also. “You are not original, you being a man call your self-God?” You are a Devil!
- · Remember, in truth we do not have a natural life.
What we know as Tony or Martha, born of a woman, born of sperm and egg, is under the belief that I have a life to live and maintain, but in reality there is no such life.
Christ is the only Life there is!
Christ the Life essence of all living. Christ is the Image God begotten of the Fathers Bosom in the beginning. In Adam we all died, but your true life is hidden with Christ in God.
- · When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
Let us therefore be still and hear the Voice of Jesus who is our Resurrection and Life so that we can pass from death (the realm of flesh and blood, out of an unconscious state of being into Life superabundant).
Let us all come back into a conscious awareness of our true substance which is Spirit and Life, it is wonderful!
We must be like Paul who recognized the death of his own fleshly nature, which is really but a mind formed concept anyway, flesh is not our true self.
- · There is not a flesh man and a spiritual man as the religious mind proclaims. Christ is our life, not flesh and blood.
Christ Jesus is the only image and offspring of God to whom the promises where made. Christ is the Consciousness of the Son of God, which we all are in our true nature. It must now be revealed to us, can you hear this?
“For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Jesus; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Jesus died in vain.” Gal 2.
The Word ‘Consciousness’ even the Word ‘God’ is not God. We cannot even study ‘God’ or give it a name. By studying God we lost the meaning of Being. In our mentalism we made a religion out of the Infinite Presence called NOW!
Remember God is the source, which created and maintains all life without the help of religious thinking can you hear this?
- · No word or thought can describe God.
Not even the word: ‘Now’, ‘Love’, Spirit, Law, Soul or Mind can describe God. God as the Author of all life has to be realized AS our Being, and again outside of Jesus you can’t find it.
Consciousness is a feeling of belonging; crying Abba Father. Now in Christ Jesus, what I am becoming aware of in silent adoration, “I AM”.
What I have been looking for all my Life I always have been.
Now through the blood of the Lamb of God; (The Life giving Spirit of Jesus) I can enter into the Most Holy. I can now legally come back to where I belong, back to the Fathers House. It is wonderful, can you say amen?
This comes by realization. Faith comes by hearing the Voice of the Lamb of God, which hovers over us to keep us from the death angel.
You who hear this message, join me and let us celebrate life; the Lamb of God is our Passover.
Eat of His Flesh and Drink of His Blood.” My Flesh is meat indeed and my Blood is Drink indeed. “I am your Passover Lamb I will never leave you nor forsake you. Come unto Me all you who labor and are heavy laden with care and fear of death and I will give you rest.
Learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart and you will find rest for your soul.” Matt 11:28
We see then that in this message we must transcend all words and thoughts. Especially religious and psychological concepts of God, Man and the Universe, will confuse us, the letter kills!
Now we must begin to obtain Salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ! How? Jesus said: “Learn of “ME”!
- · If you have seen ME you have seen the Father.”
The only way we can learn of the “ME” Jesus spoke about, is saying like David said: “Teach me YOU’RE WAY, O LORD, I will walk in your truth; Unite my heart to reverence Your Name.”
How is God going to teach us His way, but by the Holy Spirit?
He the Spirit has been given to lead us into all Truth. So then, when we become still and stop thinking about the future, we begin to abstain from all mental words, to hearing intuitively.
We now abstain from all religious concepts of God. We prepare our minds to become receptive for the Manna, the inner meat and drink, the Life of Jesus. It is wonderful!
If you can think it, see it, hear it through what is known as knowledge, we are in the flesh and flesh cannot enter the eternal NOW! You cannot enter the realm of the mind of Christ Jesus through religious dogma; you will die in your sin. In other words, in the New Creation realm we begin to live intuitively from the inner realm where God’s Kingdom functions. We must know that our Flesh has been crucified with Jesus on the Cross, can you hear this? Now you must reckon yourself to be dead unto sin (a separate sense of self) and alive or conscious of your Christ Self, which is One Spiritual Being. My Father and I are now One!
When you have this feeling of belonging (no longer do you have guilt or fear) you begin to experience what I call spiritual healing.
Spiritual Healing is a restoration of the Christ Image to its former Glory, spirit, soul and body.
To be continued.
