Do you believe in the preexistence of the Son as a "being" ?In Mary God our Father put on flesh.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
Because the One doing this was no Son but our Father.
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
Sure. It is our Father giving us the Bread. Not the Son. As it is the Father that is the Provider and not the Son.
32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
I know. I was also taught this from the tradition. I just accepted it because I could see "it was the truth". And i actually never asked Dad about it. But this One was actually your Dad.
I know. I am just giving my side of the story. I am not forcing anything.
You are Jesus.
Without this knowledge you will forever misuse the Bread that was given, The Name that was given and the Life that was given. You will for always try to be what you are not. You are not good and never will be. It is all in being a Christian. Being Christ.
And you will not pray the one and only prayer in Truth. And your Relationship will always be lacking from that of Jesus. Because you are not Jesus.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
There is just nobody else to include in this prayer. I did it. Jesus was the main "god". I mean. He died for my sins. I just "loved" him. Not giving my Father the Love that He was due. Because it was actually Him that "did the works". And I loved to "honor" the 'holy spirit". He was my guidance. Not knowing that it was actually my Loving Father guiding His Child. And the "spirit gave birth to me". Not knowing that it is only a Father that can give birth.
And we have to admit it is from the tradition, doctrines and religions. Man's understanding of Jesus.
You never struggled to be a human being. You were born one. So the struggle in being Christ is just because you were never born Christ. It is all a Life in Faith. You can not be what you don't believe you are. Now you have to add in your own effort what you should have had in Faith. Faith is the Creation Power of God. But God only create what we accept and believe in. Love can never be forced. Love needs to be accepted.
Your Dad gave you the Name above all Names. But have you accepted it yet. Or are you "nameless"? A Christian without being The Christ? A human being calling Himself "Christian". A sad story. It shows. Because it is tradition at work.
Became flesh = A body was prepared for Him
John referred to the Jesus they saw and touched as the "word of life" Jesus still is the word of life. He was not a word that was made flesh rather He was a being (spirit) and a body was prepared for Him. His Spirit was in the tent of the body God prepared for Him.
Therefore, when Christ came into the world, HE said: "Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me;
"Father into your hands I commit my spirit"
I have the Spirit of Christ in me and we are one. But that Spirit is not my spirit. I am not Jesus. The Spirit of God in me does not follow my will but the will of the mind of the Spirit. My spirit follows the will of my mind. I do not have the authority and power of God.
I did not accept Jesus by tradition but by faith. I was steered to Jesus as a very very young age and something took. Because as far back as my memory goes I have loved and believed in Him. I still talk or pray to Jesus to this very day. He answers prayer and knows me and is very aware of even my innermost thoughts.
