This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declared unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
1st John 1:5
There is a pivotal point in humanity’s history where time itself was split between B.C. and A.D., the Bible was split from Old to New and our consciousness of God shifted. The Cross, for most Christians, is the symbol for this "shift" back to God. For myself, I think this shift is more about the life and ministry of Jesus Christ that is central to the cosmic story, The God Process.
It is a message that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came into creation to show us all a path back to God. Our awareness of life was altered by a message that with Christ came a new hope for peace, wholeness and salvation.
The source of "The Message" comes from what I can only describe as this whisper that came to me. When one stops and meditates one can hear a voice that speaks to you. It is a thought that we can hear, but it is not a conscious thought that we can dictate to ourselves, it seemingly just comes from above. The Eternal path of Restored Innocence is this process of how God instills His essence within us, where love, goodness and other attributes takes root.
The following is a passage from Part II: The Message...
And they stood and they watched on a hill, now desolate. The crosses hung amidst a pale grey sky. The air was thick and the sounds of some suffering still tormented the ears of those who stood and watched. Others who were charged with the duty to crucify became as stone to block out the death and the stench of blood. Judgment day came and went. Day after day it came and left. Another day, another life. From judgment to judgment to judgment were they crucified. Some on the cross, others in the heart and for the few who kept charge were crucified in the mind and will. Then there was silence.
As the heavens gave way to a new dawn, life emerged. Not even the cross could contain judgment against the Son of man, the Son of God. In the final judgment of Him who would judge for righteousness was the resurrection. The recreation in both body and soul to the image of what God made real in Jesus. The Christ stood at the door of an empty tomb. His life and image did not pass into death but into life eternal.
It was in this whisper from my soul that I heard this message. This is not a traditional Christian message, because in the Journey of Christ "The Message" explores the why of the cross and other mysteries of life.
