Some excerpts from Heavenletters about Christ, and one complete one. There are many many more.
HEAVEN #276 Freedom and Christ
Christ was misunderstood, but he had great understanding. Christ was imprisoned. But what walls, what nails, could imprison him? He was crucified, but what could crucify him? His body was defamed, but what could defame him? He was denied, but what could he ever deny? His physical life was taken, but he was not. He did not die to give you everlasting life. His body died letting you know that life is ever everlasting. His death told you what was already true. He saw what you did not, and he never lowered his eyes from truth. He did not give you everlasting life. He gave you knowledge of it. And that was a great gift he gave.
He did not look upon his life as his. He saw it was Mine on loan to him on Earth for a brief time. He was not attached to his life. He was attached to following Me but not to what I could give him. He forever had Me in his eyes, and he pondered the depths, and he saw himself in Me.
What limits did not Christ break? He saw none, therefore, he was free. He saw vast through My eyes, and that is what you are learning to do, yes, you. Whatever disarray you find yourself in, you are learning My vision and My thoughts, and I am gladdened.
HEAVEN #174 Your Inheritance
This passing of love, back and forth, is the rhythm of life. That is the flow of the ocean. That is the rising of the sun. Waves of love lap back and forth, and each wave is sweet. Neither back nor forth is greater than any other moment of love itself. That rhythm was the rising and setting of My son Jesus.
He came into the world as love. He passed out of it as love. And in between his birth and death he was the simplicity of love for all to behold. Behold My son who chose love over fear, truth over ego, life over death. We can say with great accuracy that he lived My light on earth.
In thought today, the world rolls over for him. He touched hearts. He touches yours. What a wand of My light and love was he.
You feel a dismay rather than a gladness when I tell you that you are the same, for you feel far away from your greatness, even from the possibility of it. But greatness is not show. It is not production. Greatness is what already is. You need nothing but to dare to shine your light that I bestowed upon you. Before you were born, you were gifted with light. You were filled with it. Now let your light escape. Let it do what light likes to do.
And then you are lightened. Tremendously lightened. You unburden yourself of light! Light kept in is not happy. Light, like you, is happy when it does what light does. And you, you are happy when you rise to your truth, or My truth, whichever way you prefer to look at it. They are the same.
My truth and your truth are no different. Truth is its own.
And you are My Own. You are My own child of love that I gave to the world so that it might be gladdened.
Look upon the gladness that Christ gave. He gave from Me. Of himself, he could do nothing. Of himself, he could give nothing. It is not his individuality that touches you. It is his gift of loving Me and giving Me that touches you. That is what makes your defenses crumble. He who had no defenses brandished My strength and My truth before the world. He was My innocent son and he gave his inheritance to you.
He willed, as I will, that you have it. He touched his wand of light upon your shoulder. He dubbed you his brother equal to him.
When you feel your love for Christ, your layered image of him, you begin to love yourself. You peel away at what you are. What you are has been foreign to you and unlikely. But, listen, it is time for you to begin to know who you are. My son is My son. There is no getting around it. You have all the gifts that I give. I gave them to you. Take that personally. True, I gave them to everyone, and that includes you.
Be delighted, not dismayed, that you are greatness. You have to know it before you can rise to it. Begin to know. Begin to express. Begin.
Jesus, the man, went through all the things you do. He, the person, did not know he was born to Greatness. He did not fully know any more than any child on earth.
At the same time, each man’s heart knows that he is more than what he seems, that all of human existence is more than what it seems. In the human heart lies the knowledge, hidden, refused, unclaimed, that each man is a prince, God’s heir and holy Son, and that the apparent suffering is only an act.
Jesus realized soon. His heart quickened. And by himself with God, he stepped over his hurting humanness and caught the brass ring of divinity. So shall you. So shall all.
HEAVEN The Brass Ring of Divinity
Now that you know I love you, you do not need proof of love from others. You do not need proof of love from the world. Be beloved. Walk through life as one who is beloved. Then you are Christ.
Christ knew who and what he was. Therefore, he did not have to ask for anything. What did he ask for? What did he ask anyone to do for him or prove to him? His one request was that others come to Me and have the joy of knowing Me that was his. What did he ask but to give? And what he wanted to give was Me.
When did he say, "Hmm, what do I want today? What do I feel like? What is due me today? Who didn’t do what I wanted yesterday? Who is in my way today?" One in joy simply does not think that way. He doesn’t push those thoughts away. He doesn’t assume a stance that is not his. He is with Me, and that is it. And that is enough. All else fades next to that.
I say all else fades. Its importance fades, but light is brighter because My light is seen. My light that shines is seen. And what can that light be but reflected? There is no effort here.
Christ did not pull himself out of bed in the morning and think about all he had to accomplish. Not at all. He had nothing to accomplish but to follow Me. And I followed him. I went ahead of him, and I followed him, and he followed My orbit, and his step was firm. And others followed Me through him.
What was that sainted man that people still follow him today to Me? He was a bright star in the firmament. He lit up the universe, and his light still lights. But his light was never his, you understand. He knew Whose light it was and its perpetuality. He knew he was a moving star, and that I was the Mover.
You think that the difference between you and Christ is enormous. It is not. I tell you it is little. And the difference is becoming less and less.
You are going somewhere. You are coming into the light. Light is entering light. What are the possibilities? How much light is light entering light?
You are stepping into My light from which you will never leave. You may move, you may travel, but you will not leave. You will take Me everywhere with you. Your bearing will make Me known. My light shining in you and raying out from you will make Me known.
You are the shiners of My light.
You are lighted stars, and stars shine.
Today you are lighting up the universe.
It needs My light through you.
It has been lonely for My light.
Only you can shine it.
Don’t wait for another star on the horizon.
You are the star on the horizon, and you are rising.
You rise to Me, and all look up at the brightness of My light within you. And what the eye sees, it follows. The path of your eyes is your direction. That is your map. Your eyes will lead you, and your eyes go toward light. And all will follow where your eyes take them.
They are following you now. Others are following you now.
Everyone is always following someone else. Now you know where you are leading. No longer will you follow any but Me.
No longer will you lead anyone into uncertainty. No longer will you lead anyone into doubt. Now you will lead others to where it is light, broad daylight, lit by frequent God’s stars.
