Question: I mean no disrespect to you in any way. And if you are the real Jesus then you will understand and welcome this concern. I am very careful to not follow false prophets. So I say this to you. If you are the real Jesus then great, Amazing, but if not then claiming that you are would make you a false prophet and then you will one day have to stand before the real Jesus. Again I mean no disrespect it just doesn’t add up to me. But then again only Jesus understands all things and has the answers. So i leave this in his hands for he is the almighty and all powerful one. So if you are the real Jesus then that is wonderful and then you would appreciate my inquiry, but if not then you have to think of the consequences.
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
I take no offense, and I feel no disrespect from you. I very much welcome your inquiry, and I am happy with the fact that you take care not to follow false prophets. That is indeed why the Bible says to try the spirits, whether they are of God. [1John 4:1]
I hope you recognize that trying the spirits is not something that can be done with the human intellect or the outer mind. I see many Christians who read the quote about trying the spirits, and they think the only way to do it is to compare any new teaching they come across to the orthodox doctrines of their particular church. They also believe that if anything goes beyond, questions or contradicts the orthodox doctrine, then it must automatically come from a false spirit. This, of course, is exactly what the devil wants them to believe, because it prevents them from opening their minds to the Living Word.
There is only one way to fully try the spirits, and that is to go into your heart and contact your Christ self, so that you can feel whether a particular teaching has been brought forth through the Living Word. As the scriptures also say, it is only the spirit that gives life:
Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. (2Corinthians 3:6)
Only those words that carry the Spirit of God will give you the life you need in order to move higher on the spiritual path. That life cannot be put into words by a human being. That life can come only through the Holy Spirit that flows through the mind and heart of a human being.
I am indeed the real Jesus Christ. Obviously, I am a spiritual being, speaking through a messenger in embodiment. Nevertheless, it is the Spirit of the living Jesus Christ that is flowing through the words on this website and in the books that my messenger has brought forth.
You are right that any person or any spirit trying to pose as me or another ascended being will surely face the consequences of that deception. It is also true that every human being should be very alert and very concerned about deception, because there truly are many false teachers in the world, and more are appearing on the Internet every day.
However, truth is a two-edged sword. One edge points toward others, and the other edge points toward you. It is wise to recognize that you too have a responsibility as a visitor to this website. Let me use your terminology. If indeed I am the real Jesus Christ, then you should consider what will happen to those who visit this website and reject me and reject my Living Word.
Anyone who rejects the Living Christ faces the consequences of that decision. Those who masquerade as spiritual teachers, and are not anointed by the ascended masters, will face the consequences of that form of the denial of the Christ. Yet those who encounter a true teacher, a teaching that is sponsored by the ascended masters, and rejects that teaching will also face the consequences of that rejection.
So let those who read this be careful and consider that your responsibility as a human being is to always sharpen your ability to recognize truth—in any disguise in which that truth might appear. It is not enough to simply look at the outer clothing of truth because God has a right to disguise truth in order to hide it from the profane. The Creator truly does not cast its pearls before swine, yet it has written his truth in the inward parts of everything it created. Therefore, it is the responsibility of any true spiritual seeker to sharpen his or her discernment to see beyond the outer disguise, and thereby recognize the inner truth in the form of the Living Word.
Many people, including many Christians, have not learned to see beyond the outer disguise or the outer doctrines. They have expectations that are built from the relativity of the dualistic mind, and they seek to impose those expectations and those criteria upon any new spiritual teaching they encounter. If one small aspect of the teaching does not meet their approval, they reject the entire teaching. This is an all too common reaction from those who have not made a true commitment to me and the path of spiritual growth I brought as my unique gift to this planet.
Such people might think that they have the best reasons in the world for rejecting a teaching. Yet ignorance of the law is no excuse. To focus on the letter of the law and use it as an excuse for denying the Spirit of the law is no more acceptable today than it was 2,000 years ago, when I denounced the scribes and the Pharisees.
Did I not say that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees [Matthew 5:20], you will not enter the kingdom of heaven? Well, the righteousness that I am looking for is the Christ consciousness, and with that the discernment to know what is a true spiritual teaching that comes from God and what is a false teaching that comes from elsewhere.
You have found a true spiritual teaching that comes directly from the Ascended Jesus Christ through the heart and mind of my servant. If you reject this outer teaching, you will be rejecting me. As a spiritual teacher, I will always respect your free will. Yet I must tell you that all choices have consequences. Consider the consequences before you make the decision because if you do not, how could you possibly make a free choice?
If you study this website through the filter of the outer doctrines that you have been fed since childhood, you simply cannot make a free choice about the validity of these teachings. Therefore, you owe it to yourself to go into your heart and consider the teachings on this website with an open mind and heart. Do not ask yourself whether the teachings on this website conform to an outer, man-made “truth” that you have been brought up to see as infallible. Instead, ask yourself whether the teachings on this website conform to the Living Truth of God that IS infallible—yet has no infallible expression in this world.
In closing let me say that although I am a powerful ascended being, I am not almighty or all-powerful. Those adjectives describe only God, and as my beloved Mother has so eloquently explained, I am God but God is more than I am.
