CHRIST THE IMAGE OF GOD REVEALED AS YOU AND I
2 Corinthians 4:4-8 4 in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. (KJV)
Beloved, the subject matter of this letter could be the most vital message that you have ever heard. It not only revolutionised my life completely, but also gave me a full insight into the original creation of God. It came to me in a vision. God IS revealing in Gal 3:16 that to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not to seeds as of many, but as of one, and to thy seed, which is Christ.
In this revealed Word we see that the promises were not made to a human, but to the original image which is the Universal Christ. In order to make this revelation clear to you, for it is now the time for us to identify correctly with the true essence of our being, which is the original image, created in the image and likeness of God.
I like to share this with you in the vision that I saw.
Back in Holland , as a young man, I used to go to a fun park where you can enjoy various entertaining experiences. One of these experiences was in a circular building in which there was a large round disk which rotated very fast and we had to jump onto the disk and run for our lives to get to the centre where there was no centrifugal force to throw us off.
After seeing this vision, the Spirit of Jesus gave me the interpretation. Through this vision God revealed the true heir of God to me. Humanity as a whole is not the heir of God. Man in his mistaken identity is constantly struggling for survival. In his ignorance of reality he is blinded by the god of this world. Blindness as to what he is in truth keeps him running and running to and fro, searching for a point of satisfaction where he can enter into God’s Rest.
This attempt is futile of course, it can never work. Jesus said; “My Kingdom is not of this World”. This world is illusion and its good and evil values can never enter or inherit the Inner Kingdom of God.
As I was contemplating this revelation, suddenly there appeared another vision. A being of light was standing in the centre of the disk perfectly still, emanating love and peace to the world. God spoke to me and said; “This is my beloved heir, and the government of life is upon His shoulder, who gives Light and Life to the whole world”.
I said; “Lord”, “I thought Jesus the man was the only heir of God to whom the promises were made”! He said; “No, son; Jesus is the perfect expression of the fullness of the Christ yes! Yes, Jesus revealed the Father to us yes, but we must not look at the man. We must bear witness to the inner Christ which is the Image and Substance of God!
Yes, the Living Bread Jesus spoke about came from Heaven as the heir of God so that we all, if we eat this bread and drink his blood shall never die. In our Meditation we must begin to awaken to our true heritage which is the Universal Christ Image. God gave His only begotten Son to you. Christ which is your true identity is in you the Hope of Glory. The original image, the offspring of God is now living within you, waiting until you realise it consciously in your Meditation. Remember, He will not force Himself upon you; you must open your heart and let Him in.
- For as many as received Him to them gave He power to become the Image of God again in expression
In James 1:17-21 we read: “Of His own will begot Him us in the beginning with the word of Truth, that we should be the first fruit of His creation” It has always been a controversy in religious circles whether Jesus the man was the only heir of God. Religion believes that all the rest of mankind are sinners, separated from the living God, bound for an eternal Hell! Well, the Gospel is clear then when it states in Galatians 3:16 ; the promise was not made to a human; the promise was made to the Christ of every Living Man or Women. Do you hear?
This Christ Image is not flesh and blood.
Christ is a Spiritual Presence in all of us. The Image of God is the incorporeal, it is the omnipresent Son of the Living God. Christ Jesus is the universal heir of all that God is and has and you are complete in it. By being born of the Spirit I became aware of this revelation, how about you? I now know that our heritage which we all are entitled too, is the Selfhood of God which I am in My True Nature. We will however not benefit from this Truth until we receive the free gift of Righteousness without the Law.
Through the free gift of Grace and the realisation that we are one with the Father we will begin to reign in Life by One Christ Jesus, which is the fullness of God expressed through you and as you! It is wonderful. Don’t let your religious persuasions rule your life for you will remain a prodigal son or daughter wasting your substance on riotous living, until you realise your true heritage as an heir of God.
- The substance of all being is the realised Christ Consciousness.
- You are the image of the Living God in your true Being.
This wonderful Christ Image has been overshadowed by fables (cultural subjective indoctrination’s and beliefs) which control the human mind politically, religiously and socially. It is because of our sense of separation from the Living God that we began to believe all sorts of strange ideas and doctrines about God, man and the universe. Now the image and heir of God, the invisible Christ is in the darkness of materiality and lives by his own wit. Christ, which is our life is now veiled and the fleshly concept of being born of sperm and egg now took the predominance in our beliefs. Now our life is flesh and is destined to die in a mistaken identity.
Now again, after that we have made our bed in Hell, Christ will again appear to you as the reality, the substance of your being, if you search for it with all your heart and soul. It is God’s will for you to experience the abundance of Life. The Life of God was promised to the Image of God. Jesus said; “I am come, that you may have Life and have it in all its super abundance”. In this world we try to save our lives by our human standards of life. In that struggle for survival we will loose it.
Matt6. “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; “but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. “But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
Adam has not an independent life to save or to protect. Christ, Gods image is the only Life there is, and it is eternal and can never die. Think on it! To our human understanding this seems to be a contradiction, for really, if you are prepared to lay down your human concepts and opinions, and submit yourself to the word of instruction, you’ll begin to hear the plan of God for your life. In Christ you have no idea how wonderful life is. Once this veil of duality producing death, poverty and fear is lifted you will see the Kingdom of abundance destined to all who are willing to listen to the Voice of Him who rose from the dead.
Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. “All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I am come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
- As Christians we must first understand the letter of truth. We must first know that Christ is our life, not flesh and blood; otherwise this Christ Life will not appear.
- This revelation must be clearly defined. Before we can begin to live from within our own being and be led by intuitive guidance rather than by the intellect or religious doctrines and convictions we must first know this truth.
In reality all human history, past present and future, was consummated in Christ Jesus when He rose from the dead and ascended on high. All the roads that we have taken and the paths we have walked in Adam the earth man were blotted out on the cross, where you and I as humans ceased to exist.
Rom6. For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him.
You see beloved, all the realms of humanity are but a formation of thought, built up over many centuries, and it is a mind form, not a created realm. The human feeling of life is material it is not really Gods life at all, whether it appears as good or as evil, it is all but a myth. Do you hear?
All living spiritual being is Gods creation, and has within it-self the blueprint of Life, which can never permanently become extinct. Unfortunately, this initiation into Life is continually being overshadowed by the sense of fear, bringing with it a sense of shame and a sense of lack and eventually death is the result. So we see here that Adam began to be governed by the outer realm of appearances, no longer did he walk by intuition and spiritual guidance. In his darkness he is now receiving impulses from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil instead of the tree of Life which is Christ.
In his blindness man began to struggle for survival like the men I saw running on the disc. We too are eventually thrown off into desperation and circumstances that you would not like to be in, if we stay in Adam (living by sense evidence). Do you hear this? In Adam you have no choice; you will die, for the wages of sin is death. But be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. If you desire to know the Truth as to what your true nature is, you will find it. Right now when you receive this word consciously without doubt, you will have again access by Faith into the Realm of the Inner Kingdom and life will be wonderful to you in all aspects.
This Light Being I saw in the vision, standing in the middle of the disk was you and I in our true substance. This Christ state of Life is our Life, hidden as a treasure in the midst of you is waiting for you to open the door and let it in. It’s the original mind and consciousness that God desired you to have from the beginning. In this new state of consciousness, nothing again can enter you that defiles or make a lie. However, for thousands of years it was overshadowed by ignorance of Truth, and because of fear and a sense of guilt we could not believe our Oneness in God. Now we again must believe the Love that God showed us and receive His Grace without Works.
I believe that the greatest hindrance for the average Christian to enter the realm of Christ, (so that we come into a living experience), is because we are afraid of disease, failure and finally death.
We seem to feel a sense of guilt and separation in our humanity, not realising that Jesus already destroyed this sense of sin and guilt on the Cross blotting out the handwriting and ordinances that were against us. Consequently, we developed a belief in two powers, God and devil, Life and death, hell and heaven, sickness and health etc, which is all but an Illusion of the carnal mind.
THE ILLUSION OF SEPARATION
Adam began to believe he was fearful and naked. He began to feel separated from the Presence of all good. In this darkened mind a feeling of guilt and fear developed, but what did God say? “Who told you that you were naked or separated from the I AM. This fearful sense of separation from the Living sustaining Presence became the first prodigal son, which of course is all but a lie for in God there is not a prodigal son and a true son, but the prodigal experience is very real to our senses.
Adam began to live a human life instead of Christ Life. The human life sense is the serpent realm, and in this realm a sense of lack and of guilt now governed him, Adam was blinded by the God of this World and died to all what is Grace and Truth. This is the state of consciousness which he introduced to all humanity and in Adam all died.
THE DESCENT INTO MORTALITY
This became the experience off all mankind, for as a man thinks in his heart that is what he experience in life. Prov23.
Now men’s life, instead of living from the intuitive, is now governed by outside powers, influencing him to act in fear instead of by the inner Christ guidance. This alien state of conscience produced nothing but trouble, and death was the final outcome.
- It was Adam’s misalignment to Reality that caused all mankind to be lowered into hell (a place for the human dead).
Beloved, you must all realise consciously, hell is not something God ordained. Hell is a carnal mind form, it is not a place we go to, it is what we feel, and that is hell. It is believed by Church Doctrine that hell is a place where all sinners go to when they physically die, is this Truth? No, not so, hell is a place or a state of consciousness that has a sense of mortality and fear of death. That means that the mind of flesh is hell. Hell then is a carnal mind formed idea which God our Father knows nothing about.
Hell is a belief that we are separated from the living presence of God and that is a total lie, for we never left the Presence of God, only guilt and fear made it appear that way. We can never be separated from God, never mind what we do and have done in the past. To believe that we are damned and doomed forever unless we receive a man called Jesus into our heart, is not true at all either, that is not what Jesus taught us.
He said in; John 5:24-26 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. 26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; (KJV)
It is all in the hearing of the voice of Jesus who is already in our heart that fear of judgement stops. In Spirit and in Truth we hear His guidance and we are led in all what we have to do. Listen to His Voice and stop listening to all religious voices of doom. Just abide in Him and all things will be added to you. Remember what Jesus said:” My Father judges no man” We all have the same heritage, all have the same Father. This is why Jesus could say; " OUR FATHER" which is in Heaven. I believe we are now beginning to enter into a Spiritual age, where there will be an explosion of Spiritual awakening in this Planet.
- It is the will of our Father to reveal our true heritage which He will deliver you from the powers of death, hell and the grave in the twinkling of an Eye.
In Isaiah 28 we find that God called the belief in 2 powers, a covenant with death, which is simply a belief in death as finality. If death was a reality state we would be for ever dead. What do you believe as a Christian woman or man? The belief in death is a fearful experience, yes! If we remain uncertain of our destiny and do not know that; “I AM THE RESURRECTION AN THE LIFE”, he or she who believes Jesus shall never die”, we will remain in uncertainty as to what is going to happen tomorrow.
Awake thou that sleep and arise from the dead and Christ will give you life. Eph 5:14
This awakening process is a realisation that you are no longer a sinner saved by grace, no! In Christ Jesus you are an heir of all that God has and is. Receive His Grace Now!
It takes courage to receive this Grace in your heart, for us as humans are so independent and so self sufficient that we are reluctant to give our life over to the care of God.
- Faith is a marvellous thing, if you understand what it is.
- Faith is the Substance or personality of things hoped for, the evidence of things we cannot see or hear with the intellect or human reason.
In Hebrews Paul calls it the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things (not yet perceived with the senses) seen. Heb 11:1
The senses only witness to sense evidence and can never understand the promise of God made to the seed. The promise of God to His Seed are spiritually discerned and appreciated. In Adam we have been struggling in our own strength to survive in this world, instead of listening to the intuitive Voice of Jesus speaking Grace into our Hearts.
Jesus came to reveal life as Consciousness, your consciousness!
- Consciousness is the thing that maintains and upholds the Universe.
- Consciousness of Oneness supplies and provides all things for all living being including the rocks and the inanimate forms of Life. The difficulty in our religious lives is to think that we are the effect and not the cause, Christ is Cause, all what you experience in life is the effect of your own beliefs. Yes, Adam is the effect of a mistaken identity, a state of consciousness defiled by a sense of sin and nakedness.
If you think you are the effect of past indoctrinations and not the cause of your environment, you live in a dream. In fact all the things around you have influenced you, including your mother and your father, your school teacher and your boss. All these outer experiences in life causes you remain to be under material law and you will remain in fear, for you are not governed by the Law of being which is Christ.
The heir of God is not an effect, the Heir of God is the cause of creation he is not the creature. Once that is realised within us and we know that Christ which is our Life is Cause, our life style around us begins to become beautiful. Now you have dominion even over your circumstances.
Col1- giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. 13He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, which is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the pre-eminence.
For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight—
WHAT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY?
- In His Light of Life you will realise, your only responsibility is to maintain the Consciousness of faith, or put it another way; we have to maintain the realisation that my Father and I are one Being not Two.
It has been also a challenge in my life right from the beginning. When I saw the vision of Christ standing on the disk, I learned not to be moved by the appearances of this world, whether they are good or evil, political or social. It brought about wonderful healings in peoples lives. Let me share one with you, so that you who are sick can have hope of recovery.
A young man came to me for help last year. He was diagnosed as having multiple sclerosis; he was shaking so much and could not work as his profession was an electrician. Immediately I knew I had to go within and see him the way God knows him. In my silence I saw the true image, perfect and whole in Gods Presence. He went home floating on cloud 9. All the shaking stopped and after nearly a year of working full time there has been no re-occurrence of the disease.
We all have to learn to withdraw within ourselves in meditation, especially when we are faced with an incurable disease. In silent adoration we find the source of our Being and experience Father to be our total sufficiency in all what we set our hands to do.
- Like Jesus said “It’s my Father within me that doeth the works”
The Father is the maintainer of all that I am and what I do; it is My Father Who keeps me until eternity, never seeing death or corruption. It is wonderful! Knowing Jesus after his humanity will not help you to see the Truth, Jesus said, “I as a human have to go away, for if I do not go away, the comforter can not come.
The Comforter is the Inner Christ. Christ Jesus as a life giving presence is the maintainer, supplier and the guidance of your whole life in this World.
THE LAST HUMAN
Don’t forget, the humanity of Jesus died on a cross and when he died as the last human, you and I also died and our humanity ceased to be. I died in the last Adam, but I also rose into a life giving Spirit called the second man, which is the heir of God the Image Created in true Holiness and Righteousness.
God has only one son, and I am complete in Him.
John the Baptist revealed the Lamb of God. The Lamb of God is the heir of God to whom the promises were made. The Lamb of God is the invisible Christ which took away the sin (mistaken identity) of the whole world for all men and for all time.
The Lamb of God in practical experience.
In order to find balance in your life you must realize first, there is no more memory in God’s mind of your human existence. He only knows you as His beloved Child. God only knows you as the beloved offspring, standing in the midst of you as a Presence, in perfect harmony and tranquillity with all Creation. This Lamb of God is the Creation of God, it is Gods image, and it is Love personified. Because it is Love and does not judge, it takes away all your fears and all your anxieties about this life, but we must not fight or resist evil of any kind, realize its non-power and it will disappear from your life.
- The Lamb of God is the nature and the name of the Living Presence the Principle of Non Resistance.
The revelation of this Lamb Nature causes you to be born of the Spirit, and see the Kingdom. In Christ you will understand the mystery, when Jesus said; “If you drink of my blood and eat of my flesh you have Life flowing through you and you have awoken unto your true heritage, and shall never see death! Partaking of the name and nature of God is drinking and eating of his blood and flesh. He will cause the weary to rest in this communion.
Isaiah 28:11-13 11 for with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. 12 To whom he said this is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear. 13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. (KJV)
Matthew 11:28 28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (KJV)
You see beloved, there remains therefore a rest for you and I in Christ Jesus. Now we must seek the invisible Kingdom of God that is within us first and become rightly related to it in awareness for in it all things what you have need of will be added to you. It is wonderful! In this communion the abundance of all things will begin to flow through you. This new found realm of the Kingdom of the Son of His Love is the destiny of all living on planet earth.
- The thief came but to rob and to steal (human consciousness) but I am come, your true substance that you may experience the superabundance of Life. For all things are already yours, I will never leave you nor forsake you, I am you and you are me, we are One is Reality Being.
You are standing on holy ground, you are in My Presence.
I am your life and I am your bread, I will never leave you nor forsake you. I am the heir of God.
I am your own consciousness unfolding.
I am not a man whose breath is in his nostril, I am the Christ, to whom all the wisdom, the power and the Glory is given.
I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending. I go before you, not a man, I am the Eternal Presence, and I will keep you unto eternity.
In the realisation and conviction that I am you and you are Me shall be your Rest and Confidence. I am the bread of God, the Infinite Supply, I am constantly unfolding and revealing the true essence of Life as being your life and my life, for there is only one God Form.
I am the true vine, if you abide in me as one you shall never thirst, and you shall never hunger. I am the Way of Righteousness; I am Divine thought flowing through you, revealing your eternal immortal life as your own heritage.
In this state of consciousness you shall never see death.
When you know this Truth, you will never have to fear again, and faith works by love. Every issue of life will come forth as harmony, health and prosperity. Not because you are seeking health or success or prosperity. No! No! You never have to pray for more or bigger fish to come into your net. Now you forsake your nets and follow me. Follow the voice of the Shepherd and you will never trust in your nets again. (Eg your boss or your government or money) for supply, because I, the heir of God is your supply, your success and your health. Follow me into green pastures. Follow me beside the still waters. I will restore your soul, even though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you shall no more fear any evil. I will lead you through what humans call death, for I am the Resurrection and the Life, He that believeth on me though he were humanly dead, yet shall he live, and whosoever believeth that, shall never experience death.
Do you believe that you are the beloved son of God? The heir of God?
If you can say yes, you can, forsake all your doctrines concerning Resurrection, Eternal Judgement, doctrines of hell and death and devil and let the Spirit of Truth govern you. In His Light and through His Nature you will escape the corruption that is in this world because of false beliefs. Receive the free gift of Righteousness. So that you can live in a state of consciousness without a sense of lack, without a sense of fear or separation.
In conclusion, lets go back to Gal 4 :1-7 and see it now in the proper light. Now I say, that the heir of God, as long as he is a child, differs nothing from a servant, though he be Lord of all.
Being a child does not mean being an Infant. The word child in Greek is NEPIOS which really means negative, living in a sense of opposites –good and evil, live and death, etc!
It means he or she who is still governed by temporal powers (anti Christ activity) lives is an activity of the sensual Adamic consciousness. In that state of mesmerism the heir of God does not benefit from the promises of God. He is in darkness and is alienated from the Life of God through blindness (the veil of death or ignorance of truth).
The Church public in general will remain to be under these elementary philosophies and doctrines of the Adamic man which is this world mind until he awakens to his true heritage. However, when the fullness of my time was come, God sent His son into my life to redeem me from my false identity, so that I might receive the Spirit of his son, which is the Spirit of adoption into heirship, crying Abba Father.
You see beloved, as long as I lived in the negative heir, I was not hearing the voice of the Shepherd and Bishop of my soul and I was subject to the curse of the Law. I was dying in my humanity. But now I hear; now I am passed from death to Life. Now I live free from lack to abundance, from fear to assurance, from anxiety to quietness and calmness. It is wonderful! Will you also hear and obey the voice of the Father?
“I” stand at the door and knock, if any man will hear my voice, I will come in and sup with him, and he with me.
Beloved, I love to hear from you if you have experienced the opening of your consciousness. So then, the heir of God lives not by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. The heir of God does not live by outer demonstrations, but lives only by the Holy Spirit guiding him or her into all truth. For you must realise all the experiences in your life are the result of your own consciousness imbued with Truth. As the Christ Mind is functioning in you and in me, we will never lack supply, health or happiness. So check yourself, what fruit are you bearing? I (AM) is the source of your supply and you do not have to perform magic. You have no need to put up a personal selfhood as I for you to survive in this world, it will not work.
I as a human am crucified with Jesus, never the less I live, yet not I as a human, but the heir of God is living in me as me by. I do not frustrate Gods grace by putting a human selfhood in the limelight. No! No! No!
I must reckon my human-hood to be dead. Human-hood is not the creation of God, it is the mind of death, and you must abandon it totally if you want to rise into Christhood.. The human is not the demonstrator of Life, for I can do nothing of myself. God our Father is the demonstrator. It is my Father who lives in me AS ME which does the work. It is the Father in me that performs His own plan for me.
There is only one Selfhood and that Selfhood is the heir of God, the governing, maintaining and sustaining factor. If I would try to perform a miracle or a healing, or try in any way to make a demonstration of any kind, I am setting up an I apart from God and that is dangerous.
Ask Judas (and Ananias and Sapphira). So there is no need to work and slave to try to save or heal human beings. In our meditation we simply acknowledge and become aware of the invisible Christ which is the substance and life of every man, woman and child that lives.
- In our meditation we form an ever increasing circle of Christhood which eventually will permeate the consciousness of all men and women on the face of this earth. Be diligent therefore, Beloved, and judge not by your eyesight or the hearing of men’s doctrines.
Much Love, Tony
