Who You Are

When we said, “All power and glory are yours because the Kingdom is His,” this is what we meant: The Will of God is without limit, and all power and glory lie within it. It is boundless in strength and in love and in peace. It has no boundaries because its extension is unlimited, and it encompasses all things because it CREATED all things.

By CREATING all things, it made them PART OF ITSELF.

YOU are the Will of God, because this is how you were created.

A co-creator with the Father must have a Son. Yet must this Son have been created like Himself. A perfect Being, all-encompassing and all-encompassed, nothing to add and nothing taken FROM; not born of size nor weight nor time, nor held to limits or uncertainties of ANY kind.

God did not make the body, because it is destructible, and therefore not of the Kingdom. The body is the symbol of the WHAT YOU THINK YOU ARE. It is clearly a separation device, and therefore does not exist.

The meaning of the Son of God lies solely in his relationship with his Creator. If it were elsewhere, it WOULD rest upon contingency, but there IS nothing else. And this is wholly loving and forever.

Yet has the Son of God invented an unholy relationship between him and his Father. His REAL relationship is one of perfect union, and unbroken continuity. 

The one he made is partial, self-centered, broken into fragments and full of fear.

The one created by his Father is wholly self-encompassing and self-EXTENDING. The one he made is wholly self-DESTRUCTIVE and self-limiting.

God, who encompasses ALL Being, nevertheless created separate beings who have everything individually, but who want to share it to increase their joy. Nothing that is real can be increased EXCEPT by sharing it. That is why God Himself created you.

Because your Creator creates only like Himself, you ARE like Him. You are part of Him who IS all power and glory, and are therefore as unlimited as He is.

Son of God would not accept the fact that, although he was a creator, he had been created. Yet the Son IS helpless without the Father, Who alone IS his Help.

We said before that of yourselves you can do nothing, but you are not OF yourselves. If you were, what you have made would be true, and you could never escape.

It is BECAUSE you did not make yourselves, that you need be troubled by nothing.

Your gods are nothing, because your Father did not create them. You cannot make creators who are unlike your Creator, any more than He could have created a Son who was unlike Him.

YOU are the work of God, and His Work is wholly loveable & wholly loving. This is how man MUST think of himself in his heart, because this is what he IS.   “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”

When you acknowledge THIS, you bring the acknowledgment automatically to everyone, because YOU HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED EVERYONE.

By your recognition you awaken theirs, and through theirs YOURS is extended.

Awakening runs easily and gladly through the Kingdom in answer to the call of God. This is the natural response of every Son of God to the Voice of His Creator, because it is the voice for HIS creations and for his own extension.
