CHRIST THE ANTIDOTE REGARDING DEATH

Part 113.

Without Love 'Tis Empty Show!

''Though in declaring Christ to the Sinner.....
I may all men surpass,
If love impassioned seal not the message....
I am naught but sounding brass.

Though I have wisdom lighting all mysteries....
Though I may all things know,
Though great my faith be, removing mountains....
Without love 'tis empty show.

Though I distribute all my possessions....
Though as a martyr die,
My sacrifices profit me nothing,
Unless love doth sanctify''....

I Will Never Leave You Or Forsake You!

2 Kings 2:1-15. When Elijah's time for his departure was nearing he said to Elisha, ''Tarry here—for the
Lord has sent me to Bethel, Elisha's reply was --- I will not leave you. So they went down to Bethel,
This happened three times in verses 4 & 6, Elisha refused to leave Elijah when requested. Please notice
the tenacity & the love for the double portion which was to be his inheritance. Do we understand that he
was emulating the nature of God as in ''I will never leave you or forsake you''? In verse 9 Elisha was
amplifying the instructions as found in Mark 11:23b. He who ''does not doubt at all in his heart but
believes what he says will take place, it will be done for him''. Did Elisha receive his double portion?
Undoubtedly!
The wonderful story concerning Ruth & Naomi also portrays the same love & determination of the
nature of our wonderful Deity. The following text relates to us the wonderful Godly determination of
Ruth!
''And Ruth said, Urge me not to leave you or to turn back from following you; for where you go I
will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people and your God my God. Where
you die I will die, and there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also, if anything but death
parts me from you. When Naomi saw that Ruth was determined to go with her, she said no more. So
they both went on until they came to Bethlehem. And when they arrived in Bethlehem, the whole town
was stirred about them, and said, Is this Naomi?'' Ruth. 1:16-19. Amplified.

Because of Ruth's determination to follow what she sensed was in Naomi - incidentally this was God
actually leading her - she followed implicitly, Why? She sensed that there was only good ahead. The
double portion turned out to be much more than she could have ever imagined, Ruth not only gained a

rightful husband who was part of Naomi's family but her name now lives forever in the annuls of the
history as being a forerunner in the genealogy of the man Jesus who was also God manifested. We read
in Ruth 4:17.
''And her neighbor women gave him a name, saying, A son is born to Naomi. They named him
Obed. He was the father of Jesse, the father of David [the ancestor of Jesus Christ].'' Ruth 4:17.
Amplified. What a wonderful double portion Naomi received!

In My Fathers House Are Many Mansions!

Let us not look at our past 30 & 60 fold understandings of the above few words. Let us now consider the
many mansions in our true Spirit consciousness, yes in the awareness of our God-shared reality. This
God-shared reality belongs to every man, for within man his only true consciousness is derived from his
or her 'Image of God creation'. ''So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created he
him; male and female created he them''. Gen 2:27. KJV. We are not bound by the evidence of the
physical senses which would tell us that this outer world is the true world, our Deity within is our true
spiritual reality. Time & space is not the true spiritual concept. Have we not been well informed that
''My Kingdom is NOT of this world'' How far are we willing to take this? To date many have
interpreted this has having been simply a change in our thinking of acting differently from bad to good.
Now please do not think that I would completely undermine this. My task is to awaken you to a higher
understanding. We would share with you a deeper 100 fold understanding such as Peter has already
shared with us that which was written in the very early days of the Christian understanding, hear these
words. You ''Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be REVEALED
in the last time''. 1Pet 1:5. Also 1Pet 5:1.
The Weymouth version would use the word UNVEILED.

In the Amplified at the end of the 1Pet 1:5 verse we read ''till you fully inherit that FINAL salvation
that is ready to be revealed for you in the LAST TIME''.
The above FINAL represents the true 100 fold ''caught up unto God and to his throne''
understanding!
What does your full image of God consist of? The answer is a Love that no worldly human being
can ever imagine, think of or ever experiencing. As we have earlier mentioned our lot is to help break the
personal sense of the I of ourselves & replace it with the understanding of the I of our corporate selves.
There is only ONE GOD & this Deity is manifested within His corporate self which does not make any
more than ONE GOD. When Jesus Christ become ''God manifest in the flesh'' our Deity was still ONE.
The reason that He Jesus was manifest was that we also would come to exactly the same place &
revelation. You find that hard to comprehend, then I hope the next verse will convince you otherwise!

These are the very words of Jesus Himself. ''And now I will be no longer in the world, but they are in
the world and I come to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name which you have given to me, so that
they may be one even as we are one''. Jn 17:11. Bible in Basic English.

''And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father,
keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are''. Jn
17:11.KJV.
This wonderful understanding has been hushed since times eonian, yet is now being manifested in
this latter day & age!

''It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But
there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous
and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power'' Alan Cohen.

Once again we would cite from the very informative George Hawtin Quote:- ''Let us not try to revive
the age of grace with its flickering lights, Its spiritual gifts, & all its imperfections, but let us follow the
increasing light into the perfect day where everything in part is done away. If you want to stay there, my
brother, by all means stay, but don't ask me to stay with you, for the Holy Spirit is urging me within to
stand with 'His feet on Mount Zion' and proclaim the glorious kingdom of eternal peace. Farewell to
things that are in part. Farewell to seeing through a glass darkly and good morning to that which is
perfect; good morning to that which is complete; good morning to seeing face to face.'' Unquote.

An old chorus comes to mind which is most appropriate!

He's changing, He's changing me,
from earthly things to the heavenly,
His likeness and Image to perfect in me,
the love of God shown to the world.

Who Will Be The Representatives Of
The Future Government Of God?

''For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government WILL be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace''.
Isa 9:6. NKJV. Who is this Child?

''For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder,
and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince
of Peace''. Isa 9:6. Amplified.
Could this be describing the man-child who is ''caught up to God and His throne''? Rev 12:5.

We are the Word made flesh. We are God-being, we are God-appearing, we are God-manifesting.
This is the true glory of our being. This applies to each of us, in time we will realise we have as our true
selves the very same identity & capability as the man-child, yes our within true 'God shared' identity
which will in time be not only revealed but also fully experienced by every man!

''Sacrifice and offering You do not desire, nor have You delight in them; You have given me the
capacity to hear and obey [Your law, a more valuable service than] burnt offerings and sin offerings
[which] You do not require''. Ps 40:6. Amplified.

''Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin
offering hast thou not required''. Ps 40:6. KJV.

Obedience is far better than sacrifice. 1Sam15:22. This is written to those who are desiring to be
part of the above heading, The representatives of the future government of God!

The Awakening Of Our Giant!

Napoleon Bonaparte a once very infamous influential Emperor of France 1804-1814 once stated
concerning the China of his day. ''There lies a sleeping giant, when he awakes he will shake the world''.
In one sense man has been in a similar situation, he has not yet experienced his true potential, he has
not yet realised his full identity & when he awakes to realise who he really is he will overcome the last
enemy & that is death. As we know there came a day that China did awake & is still realising her full
potential that was dormant for so long, even generations. Man today is in a very similar situation, each &
every one of us are a sleeping giant - as it were - not yet realising that within ourselves is the capacity to

3
Christ The Antidote Regarding Death

overcome humanity's 'all things', the last enemy being death. Take notice of where we are today? It is
good to know that many of us are really reaching out!
The true I of ourselves is never a person in the sense of being an individual person, but the true I is
that we are not separated from our Deity & never have been. Look up within yourselves for the
Kingdom of God is where? ''The kingdom of God is within you'' within – entos Gk = within.

Many believe that there is a power on the outside of us. Did not Jesus Himself tell us ''ALL power is
given to you''. Where is this power? Within us of course. Turn inward in silence & listen!

When our thought dwells on a person we are functioning in the illusive Adamic dream. As our
thoughts begin to take on the nature of our inner freedom we begin to lose our sense of fear, doubt, or
discouragement. As the realisation of our power of dominion, ''behold ALL things are yours'' ''ALL
POWER is given to you, both in heaven and in earth'' begins to dawn in our thoughts, more assurance,
confidence & certainty become evident. As we realise that we are a new being, the world reflects back to
us our own higher attitude toward it!

Reality is an illusion, albeit a persistent one. ALBERT EINSTEIN.

If we have been troubled with a sense of needing God, we have good news for you, look within.
Someone may say this is not the principle I have been shown in the past. Remember the prophecy of
Isaiah the old testament prophet.
''Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a
road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.'' Isa 43:19. NKJV.
Many of us want to hold onto things of the past. Keep this in mind God is always doing a NEW
THING in our lives, if we do not allow this to happen in our lives we will stagnate. According to
scripture, a NEW THING designates a good thing, a new & higher understanding.
Regarding a new thing, hear this. Our consciousness is the all power. ''Behold I give unto you all
power''. Are we reading rightly ALL POWER. Brother & sister within your ''Image of God'' creation is
the ''All power in heaven and earth''.
The stress of daily living would easily deprive us of the truth of our great Spirit, unless we retire
often into the sanctuary of our innermost-being & let our guest be the Christ of our own being! Too long
we have sought our health, peace & prosperity outside of ourselves. You & I are the presence of Deity in
this earth, that is as we begin to realise our true Identity, which is God Himself manifesting in us. The
title of this particular thought is, The awakening of our giant!

The Feeding Of The Five Thousand!

When Jesus fed the 5,000 which represented the mass of mankind they had no idea of the wonderful
power of God & that He was interested in each one of them personally, they were in a stage of knowing
that Jesus was a miracle worker & did not yet realise that He was interested in each & every one of them
on a personal level. Try to imagine that the 5,000 mentioned were only the men, we would need to add to
this number their wives & families. Jesus knew who were there in this crowd & to show them &
ourselves today also He touched each & every one of their lives.

We also in a similar position are feeding the 5,000 of those who do not yet know their identity of
spiritual reality! Each & every one who are reading these lines our Deity is most interested in you & has
you in mind not only for now but especially for the future. We need to realise that He will have ''all men
to be saved'', as He is lifted up & away - from our God up in the sky or outside of ourselves - way of
understanding He will draw ALL men to Himself. Jn 12:32.

If there is a belief of separation between us & our God - our Good - we correct this by realising that

4
Christ The Antidote Regarding Death

''I and my Father ARE ONE''. In Spiritual reality ''All that the Father has is mine''; The place where
we stand is Holy Ground, that is in the infinity of our being. If we yet realise the truth of the Bible we
realise the truth of the promises, that they are no longer just quotes from the Bible but to us are statements
of fact. We are daily realising the truth of our ''Oneness with God'' I am, we are, the Image of Deity.
We must eventually bring forth the truth of our ''Image of God'' reality & become in fact death
overcomer's, yes even as our great forerunner Enoch, the one who did not see death & was actually
translated we shall also follow him in type. Remember Enoch was our fore-type forerunner for the reality
of the man-child who is actually to be ''Caught up to God and His Throne'' Rev12:5b. We must accept
Jesus' revelation of the I AM until it becomes a reality within. Remember once again the title of the
section before the last, The awakening of our giant.

The things we perceive with our five senses are objects of the mind & have no relationship to
spiritual truth. The five senses consist of taste, smell, hearing, seeing & touch. But wonderfully each &
everyone of us are endowed with a Sixth sense. This is the sense of faith & this can be increased by
hearing from God whether it be the word of God we read or whether it be from the word that is within
ourselves. Now this does not necessarily mean that we must listen to every Tom, Dick & Harry who tells
this is the way for are we not warned that ''many shall come in my name saying this is the way, here is
Christ or there is Christ'' how can we know the difference? The only place to look is within for are we
not told by the Master ''I am the Light of the world?'' A sixteenth century teacher once wrote Christ
(Jesus) calls Himself the Light of the world, but He also tells His disciples that they are the Lights of the
world! Where is this Light? Always within!

''You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden''. Mt 5:14. Amp.

Take No Thought For Your Life!

''Then He said to His disciples, "Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat;
nor about the body, what you will put on. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing.
Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God
feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? And which of you by worrying can add one
cubit to his stature? If you then are not able to do the least, why are you anxious for the rest? Consider
the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and
tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith? And do not
seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. For all these things the
nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the kingdom
of God, and all these things shall be added to you. "Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good
pleasure to give you the kingdom.'' Lk12:22-32. NKJV.

We are continually building spiritual consciousness. There are some moments in meditation when
we attain a realisation which is above the usual. This is to encourage & assure us that the ''Image of
God'' is surely there within. Ah, but what a promise for the future. Those who are chosen can walk
through the midst of war & not be hurt. Has Spirit ever spoken within & given you a promise for the
future, believe it, lay hold on it, do not be discouraged for the promise will come to pass!

Spirit consciousness is not under law, it is not governed by sight or worldly mental understanding. In
those brief moments when we attain a higher degree than is normal, there is not a trace of mortal sense.
Offences will come, offences must come. Why? To bring us to a higher state of perfection!

''The only devil from which men must be redeemed is self, the lower self, If man would find his
devil he must look within; his name is self.''

5
Christ The Antidote Regarding Death

''When man comes to himself and comprehends the fact the he is son of God, and knows that in
himself lie all the powers of God, he is a mastermind and all the elements will hear his voice and gladly
do his will. Two sturdy asses bind the will of man; their names are Fear and Unbelief. When those are
caught and turned aside, the will of man will know no bounds; then man has but to speak and it is done.''
92:11-12. Aquarian Gospel.

One translation has written thus. ''Peace follows strife; I come to slay this peace of death - the death
of ignorance - . The prince of peace must first be prince of strife. This leaven of truth will stir the lower
self, the lower self which equates to the death – the lower self – so as to know the higher Self.''

When the smoke is cleared away the nations will learn war no more; the Prince of peace will come to
reign firstly in His corporate man-child those who are caught up to God & His throne. Rev 12:5.

''Men are not motes - particle of dust - to float about within the air of one short life, and then be lost
in nothingness. When men see no further than one little span of life it is no wonder they say, there is no
God, or if there is a God He is a tyrant and should die. Man is part of the eternal whole, there never was a
time when He man was not; a time will never come when He will not exist''.

For in the rightful, full understanding of His full Image of God Identity; He man is non-other than
God manifest in flesh. Remember Jesus was lowered that we might come to realise our raised identity!

If we are experiencing strife remember there are the fires of life, the fires of purification &
perfection. Some may not agree with this but the man-child must endure it.

''The chemist throws into the fire the ores that hold all kinds of dross, the useless metal seems to be
consumed; but not a grain of gold is lost. There is not a man that has not in himself Gold that cannot be
destroyed , the evil things of man's flesh are all consumed in a fire of complete perfection; Only the Gold
survives. This is meaning the true self will survive all fires of perfection in the here & now!''

Habit As Opposed To A Coming Out & Looking Up!

''And He brought him outside [his tent into the starlight] and said, Look now toward the heavens and
count the stars--if you are able to number them. Then He said to him, So shall your descendants be. And
he [Abram] believed in (trusted in, relied on, remained steadfast to) the Lord, and He counted it to him
as righteousness (right standing with God).'' Gen 15:5-6. Amplified.

Come out & look up. Here God brings Abraham out of his tent. Why? We can become so used to
our limited surroundings or our inner natural & also limiting spiritual environment that our spiritual
perceptions can easily become distorted. Many times we need a change. Several times in our early
experiences we had become so spiritually complacent in thinking that we had arrived & the concept that
we had at that time was 'this is it'. Blessed are the eyes that can really see me! We have no hope
whatsoever of seeing the final omega truths of God whilst we are locked up in our inhibiting tent of
popular Christendom, we need to come out & look up to a higher Godly phenomenon of perception &
understanding.

Another point that needs to be shared is that our tendency to seek security through the approval of
numbers has cost the true message of what our Father wishes to reveal to us more than we can imagine.
How? If by watering down & compromising latter day truths then unfortunately the true power is lost to
many. We are warned to beware when all men think well of us as Luke would warn us.

''Woe to (alas for) you when everyone speaks fairly and handsomely of you and praises you, for even

6
Christ The Antidote Regarding Death

so their forefathers did to the FALSE prophets.'' Luke 6:26. Amp.

"How bad it is when everyone says nothing but good about you. Just look at the false prophets. Their
ancestors always said good things about them.'' Luke 6:26. Easy To Read Version.

Phillip said show us the Father and Jesus said have I been with you all this time & you do not know
me. ''I am the way'' ''I and My Father are ONE''. It is still the same in the 100 fold understanding. I
am the way. Have we yet to understand that the Christ in man, the very Christ who is in every man, the
Christ who is man is his true spiritual identity. Where do I go to find Him today, ''not here & not there'',
He is within = entos, Where is the kingdom? WITHIN every man!
Christ has always been IN every man! I repeat a thought that I use constantly. Contrary to popular
belief, our Great Deity deliberately lowered man, not because of any thing that he did, hear these words.

Rom 8:20 ''For the creation (nature) was subjected to frailty (to futility, condemned to frustration),
not because of some intentional fault on its part, but by the will of Him Who so subjected it--[yet] with
the hope.'' Rom 8:20. Amplified.

We are repeating & stressing a message that is not popular with many who are still bound by the
traditions of man which equates to the major part of Christendom. The closer we are coming to the
appearing of Christ in His body, the more the opposition. The only way we will be seeing Him is in His
Christ body. Spirit is firstly caught up in His man-child which are those who are ''caught up to God and
His throne''. Rev 12:5.

''Woe to (alas for) you when everyone speaks fairly and handsomely of you and praises you, for even
so their forefathers did to the false prophets.'' Luke 6:26. Amp.

May our Christ become highly extolled in the appearing of all those who will believe.

The Merciful Law Of God!

''The law of God is written on the Rock of right; Justice wrote the law, and mercy was the pen.

The carnal man beholds the outer man, which is the temple of the King, and worships at his - the
carnal man's – shrine. The man of God is pure in heart; he sees the King; he sees with eyes of soul.
When he rises to the plane of Christine consciousness, he knows that He himself is King, is love, is Christ
& so is a Son of God.

Jesus said. All men are sons of God by birth; God is the Father of the race; but all men are not the
sons of God by faith. He who attains the victory over self is son of God by faith, and He who speaks to
you has overcome, and He is called the Son of God, because He is the pattern for the sons of men. He
who believes and does the will of God is Son of God''.

These above paragraphs are all direct excerpts from the Aquarian Gospel. Some would discount this
version for a number of differing reasons, which we have examined. Similar reasons could be given
regarding the book of Job. When we come to consider that historians would tell us that the Book of Job
was written over a period of at least 1,000 years, do we discount it because of this reason. We need to be
honest & allow ourselves the privilege of broadening our vision & not be so critical when something
deeper & wonderful is presented. For further information on the book of Job we can find quite an
interesting exposition in the preface of the Amplified version.

A Prophet To The Nations!

7
Christ The Antidote Regarding Death

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a
prophet to the nations." Jer1:5. NKJV.

''See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down,
To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant." Jer1:10. NKJV.

It is certainly wonderful when we read about all that Jeremiah accomplished. Before he was formed
in the womb he was already foreordained of God as a prophet to the nations. Could a similar
circumstance be happening even today among the latter day message bearers. No doubt about it! There
are no doubt those teaching & writing today who were called even before their womb experience to be
messengers of the ''salvation to be revealed in the last day'' message. 1Pet 1:5.

As we begin to be drawn further into the understanding & experience of the man-child message we
cannot help rejoicing in the plan of God especially when we read in the book of Romans,

''For God has consigned (penned up) all men to disobedience, only that He may have mercy on
them all [alike]. Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unfathomable
(inscrutable, unsearchable) are His judgments (His decisions)! And how untraceable (mysterious,
undiscoverable) are His ways (His methods, His paths)! For who has known the mind of the Lord and
who has understood His thoughts, or who has [ever] been His counselor?'' Rom 11:32-34. Amplified.

When we read again Jer1:5. & consider our value, not so much as to how I evaluated myself but the
value He has placed on us, when we realise the meaning of the PRECIOUS BLOOD. To divert to a
60fold understanding for this thought, when the words precious blood are mentioned this takes in Gods
value of ourselves. Why are we so valuable? It is because Deity has planted HIMSELF within man. If
you can receive it man is God manifest in flesh. The only thing that needs to come to pass is that man is
to COMPLETELY realise it. When this happens a complete new age will come into being. Is this worth
a praise to our wonderful Eternal consigner, God in flesh which is yourselves! There is no need to look
here or there why because He the Kingdom of God is within. Keeping in mind our title.
