I see memes on social media that speak of Jesus returning. Some ask Christians to share, as if there was some test by God via social media, as to whether or not one truly has faith. Faith is not proved by sharing “I believe in Jesus” memes.
Jesus is said to return. Jesus, of course, returned already, many times over. Christianity is because of that fact. God knew that one Jesus of Nazareth was enough, and that one Jesus of Nazareth was the model from which all become Jesus. A Saint, also called an Apostle, is Jesus returned in the flesh. Jesus does not come to reproduce Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus comes to produce Christians. Christians are produced by God sending His only Son to take control of obedient servants via Jesus bringing with him the Christ Mind. Jesus was the Christ because God gave him the Christ Mind. Christians are reborn Jesuses, all led by the Christ Mind.
The problem that I see facing those who call themselves Christian is they are not Christians, in the true sense of the word. A Christian is one who has become Jesus reborn, with the Christ Mind of God. That is a most important concept that must be grasped.
People that call themselves “Christian” and believe Jesus will return at the end of the world, and wreak havoc on all the poor souls who did not believe in Jesus, are making themselves equal to God and Christ. That breaks the First Commandment, which says, “Thou shall have no other gods before me.” Believing oneself is high and mighty enough to sit on a heavenly throne of power and say, “Jesus will return at the end of the world” means oneself believes oneself knows something oneself does not know.
God asked Ezekiel, “Mortal, can these dried bones live?” Ezekiel said, “You know,” which means, “I am filled with You God, so I [my ego] cease to know anything beyond what you know.” Ezekiel did not say, “I believe in You God, so they will live if You want them to live.” That would be acting like God’s bud, thinking he was as great as God.
Ezekiel could hear God ask him that question about dried bones because Ezekiel had given up trying to think he was somebody important. He was “Christian” because his brain was not telling him what to say. The Christ Mind had been given to him by God, so he could hear God speak and let God Speak for him. Ezekiel had no other gods before God. Therefore, Ezekiel said, “You know,” which means “God knows all.”
Now the people who have bowed down to their brains and have figured out about the return of Jesus at the end of the world, and the rapture, and the left behind things (which require brains to tell the simple people who read the Holy Bible where those things are written of in the Holy Bible) are the ones that post and share ‘Jesus will return’ memes on social media. If one actually reads the Holy Bible, one sees how the disciples stood on a hill near Jerusalem on a Sabbath, after Jesus had taught them for forty days, after having been risen from the tomb; they then watched Jesus disappear into a cloud.
Acts 1:9-11 states:
9 After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight. 10 They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. 11 “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”
That says two things. First, it says that Jesus was hidden from sight when taken up. Second, it says Jesus will not be visible when he will come back.” The body of Jesus of Nazareth would be hidden from view and the body of Jesus of Nazareth would become the disciples, when they became Saints and Apostles the next day – Pentecost (the Fiftieth Day), which was on a Sunday.
Those disciples became Apostles because they had been given the Christ Mind of God. Jesus returned twelve-fold, not as one body. Jesus Christ return like a rush of wind, invisible, just like he had disappeared from view when he ascended.
The twelve Apostles, each a resurrection of Jesus Christ within the body of others who had not been Jesus of Nazareth prior, became like Ezekiel. They did not have brains that suddenly knew some things. They did not have brains that believed Jesus Christ had returned.
Had God asked each of the twelve newly appointed Saints, “Mortal, can Jesus be reborn in countless bodies?” Each of them would have all said in response, “You know.”
When John wrote The Apocalypse, there are brains that read about Jesus returning in these verses from Chapter one:
12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.
That image of Jesus is not the way believers see Jesus of Nazareth. With a sharp, double-edged sword coming out of his mouth, Jesus seems to be coming with an attitude. He feels like mean Jesus; Jesus coming to avenge the world of evil-doers.
What no one seems to grasp is that John of Patmos was John the beloved, who wrote the Gospel of John many years earlier. John the beloved laid his head in Jesus’ lap and asked, “Who will betray you?” John knew Jesus of Nazareth as the Son of Man, the Son of God (not simply believing that). John then, later, wrote from a prison on the island of Patmos, roughly fifty-five years afterwards. John (like the twelve) had also been filled with the Christ Mind, reborn as Jesus Christ in John’s body, when we read that three thousand others were reborn as Jesus, who brought to them the Christ Mind. John was in prison decades later because of his evangelism, as a Saint and Apostle. John was then just like Ezekiel, in that he could hear the voice of God speaking to him.
In this regard, John wrote:
Revelations 1:9 – I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. 10 On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet,”
When he wrote, “On the Sabbath (the Lord’s Day) I was in the Spirit,” he said he was already Jesus Christ returned. He honored God every day, especially on the Sabbath. This rebirth of Jesus of Nazareth in John is confirmed when John wrote, “ours in Jesus” and that he was on Patmos “because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.” John was reborn as Jesus; so he was in Jesus and as Jesus reborn (with the Christ Mind) he had spoken the “word of God” as a body of flesh giving “the testimony of Jesus.”
The image of mean Jesus coming at the end of the world was what the Christ Mind told John to write to those who were refusing to give up their egos and let Jesus become reborn in their flesh. The mean Jesus is what will come to those who call themselves “Christians,” when they are worshipping at the church of Self-righteousness. The “end of the world” is their own mortal deaths, when they will give up the ghost and become dried bones once again.
It is important that people know what “Christian” really means. A Christian cannot tell others how to act or try to make them fear not believing in Jesus Christ, because a true Christian is a body of flesh that has become like Lazarus and died. The brain of oneself is too weak to will its flesh to be Christ-like. Without the Christ Mind leading one’s flesh, one’s flesh will always be swayed to serve Satan. Sin is inevitable to those led by human brains. People who send Jesus will return memes on social media are like the Lazarus who has already been dead for four days and stinking to high heaven. Memes on social media say, “I am wallowing in rotting flesh, doing nothing to let God make me useful to Him.”
When Jesus says, “Lazarus, come out!” that is metaphor for the unseen rush of wind that brings true life into one’s flesh, making one’s death of oneself making it possible for one become reborn of Jesus Christ. That resurrection of Jesus + Christ is how a body of flesh can resist Satan. That is how dried bones live; where life is eternal, as opposed to death being temporal. As Lazarus reborn to life, one still looks like the old self, but one stops thinking one’s brain is anything more than rotten, stinking flesh.
Jesus said, “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” (Matthew 6:24)
Self-ego is the master of the flesh, which reflects how a soul feels like a god when having control over a body that pretends to have life through a fleshy brain. God’s Christ Mind is the meaning of “in the Spirit.” The Christ Mind is not flesh in any way; but it can be married to one’s soul, which possesses one’s flesh. Therefore, Jesus said one cannot love God by loving Self. One cannot have Self-love without despising God.
The First Commandment says, “One cannot stand before God wearing the face of oneself.” Self-ego is the face of the flesh, which worships the material realm (i.e.: money or mammon). If you love your brain, then you will hate God and His Christ Mind.
The problem with social media memes is they reflect one’s Self-ego trying to use brain power and self-will to make it appear as if one loves God. It becomes a pretend Ezekiel, one that tries to debate God about how hard it is for dried bones to live. It becomes Judas thinking some silver coins will be better than risking everything to serve God completely.
It is vital that people realize this, because there are no organized religions (or meme creators) teaching this. Saints and Apostles are few and far between these days. Saints and Apostles have become imprisoned on islands of self-sacrifice, having visions of Jesus Christ, who speaks the word of God. Instead of memes, Saints and Apostles spend their time writing letters to the seven churches that say (basically), “It is not about what good you do (and take credit for). It is about what you do not do and deny that you must do it.”
Mean Jesus then comes at the end of life for those; and mean Jesus will return invisible, just like his body of flesh disappeared into heaven.
Don’t be dried bones playing with memes. Be dried bones that can be reborn with eternal life, in the name of Jesus.
