I have been fascinated with the concept of perfect human. Most of the Superhero’s on the big screen today have had their DNA altered to provide them with an edge over their fellow humans. However the perfection that I have been meditating on is that demonstrated by Jesus the human.
The unity with God displayed in the human vessel of Jesus is a model of human perfection. All of biblical history prior to Jesus is about the development of a divine consciousness. Likewise the historical testimony after Jesus provides us with examples of what this union looks like as it works itself out in humankind. Today many religious people have been trained well enough to be sensitive of God’s Divine Presence in certain situations. However to be able to see, respect, communicate and host God’s divine Presence will require a lifelong journey.
John 17:20-21 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.
Our unity with God and our process of becoming perfect like Jesus is the evidence that the people of the world need in order to believe that God sent Jesus. We are 2000+ years removed from Jesus being here in the flesh on earth, so if the world doubts the truth of His being here it has a lot to do with the evidence we have been presenting.
So what does being human in union with God look like? It looks like citizenship in the Kingdom of God. But first we must let go of the images in our conscious of man-made replicas on earth and acquire a more spiritual interpretation from God directly and scripture. Religious organizations have done their best to usher in what they believe is the kingdom of God. Even some nation states have tried to model their structures after what they think the Kingdom of God will be like. But they all miss the crucial point, and that is that Jesus came to reveal that the Kingdom of God is found inside each human.
Romans 4:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Luke 17:20-22 Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; 21 nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”
Jesus opened a doorway in the human conscience for us to understand and envision a divine-human relationship. Recognition of divine presence is a huge step and is described as an awakening or born-again experience. It is the conscience acknowledgement of spiritual reality. However many fall short of the real prize after this experience. From then on they spend their lives looking here and there trying to relive that experience.
But the thing which all humans are now able to seek and find is a true intimate relationship with the very Presence of God. As the human being learns to still him or herself and quiet their mind, the voice of the personage within becomes clear and discernible. Communication with God on an intimate level becomes a lifestyle and the transformation into a relationship of unity like Jesus has become a reality.
It has always been our Father’s desire to maintain an intimate relationship with each of His human children. Jesus simply made a way for us to change the way we think so we can drop the fear and feel safe in the Presence of God. Now we can believe that God will not kill us as soon as we enter His Presence. We put our faith in the forgiveness and salvation found in the finished work of Christ. As our minds become more like Christ we begin to believe we can become one with God. I encourage us all to pursue the depths of this intimate union with God our heavenly Father.
As we walk in and carry this consciousness of God living within and through our lives throughout the earth realm, not only are we transformed, but the world is transformed. Not only are we able to see and experience the Kingdom of God within ourselves we are also able to see it in others. When we see it in others they sense and become aware of the God coming to life on the inside of them. In Jesus we have the perfect example of the unity between God and mankind, so let us all become transformed.
Luke 6:40 A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher.
John 17:22-23 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.
