He told us we need not need to wait; the glory of the Kingdom is at hand, within reach, now is the time, and still we wait. The Church formed in his name does not this truth proclaim. Jesus told us to be happy and be filled with the love of God, to desire such a connection with the Father as he had that our every thought would be a prayer. To ask humbly to be so filled with this love as so to become a new person, a new person with ears and eyes that constantly hear and see the truth. The truth that God’s Kingdom is at hand and we are not separate at all. That God’s good is within each of us, for each of us, connecting each of us.
Yes, Jesus Christ is shaking his head. Why “on earth” do they await my second coming? How could I tell them any differently to make them know than I did when I first appeared? Many others have been sent and many others are there. More and more know; more and more live this Truth. More and more share.
It’s getting safer and safer to share. Less and less people are bodily crucified for proclaiming this truth, but they continue to be verbally crucified for speaking out and against the written and memorialized dogma. Yes, these voices continue to be silenced, ignored and ridiculed, just as the first followers of these ways of Jesus Christ were.
These first followers got it. They opened their hearts to God and received the Holy Spirit into the depth of their souls. They were changed men, just as Jesus spoke. The love that Paul wrote about is just this love that Jesus knew, pure “Divine Love,” a gift from the Holy Spirit, ordained by God to man, not man to man. When the Holy Spirit has so filled ones soul with such love, the Kingdom has come, glory be, glory is, and the Christ within lives. No waiting required. I have to speak out.
Some people would say its “good news” and “bad news” but that’s a judgment call. I have to let that go. I call it all good, all God, at work awakening the world.
Do as you know. Pour forth your good.
