TOPICS: Only God can save church, but it must happen through people – Christhood is the key – progressive revelation from Jesus and Mother Mary – leaders will not give up their positions – no room for members to speak out – calling out those willing to change – listen to your intuition – Jesus holds office of Savior for all people – Jesus saves individuals, not organizations – overcome all man-made labels in order to enter the kingdom – no Catholics in heaven –
Question: Dear Jesus, Can the Catholic Church be saved? You didn’t try to change the Pharisees or their Synagogues. Instead you called your people out of them and began a new church. Would you do that again, and if so, how would one know?
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
The answer to your first question is found in this quote:
But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)
In other words, human beings alone cannot save the Catholic Church; only the power of God can save the Catholic Church. However, the power of God can work only through human beings. Therefore, the simple fact is that the Catholic Church can be saved only if a critical mass of Catholics open themselves up to my inner teachings, attain a critical degree of Christhood and therefore become the open doors for the power of God to change the Catholic Church through them.
Saving the Church means renewing the church, and this can happen only through progressive revelation from myself and Mother Mary. In fact, history clearly proves that without progressive revelation, any church starts calcifying, and within a surprisingly short period of time, it can become so rigid that it is no longer a vehicle for the ascended masters. Will Catholics be willing to open their minds and hearts? I simply cannot answer that question because how can anyone predict what people will do with their free will?
I actually did try to change the Pharisees and the other leaders of the Jewish religion. That is why I challenged them over and over again in an attempt to shatter their illusions and demonstrate to them that God had sent another prophet to call them to change. Obviously, I was not successful in helping them see beyond their illusions, so they refused to change. Consequently, I had no option left but to call my own out of the corrupt religion whose leaders were not willing to relinquish their power to the power of God. This is a pattern you see in many religions throughout history and even today.
The leaders of a particular religion are often the last people to acknowledge the need for that religion to change. They will not acknowledge this because change is seen as a threat to their positions of power and their control over “their” followers. They are more concerned about their own positions of power than about the truth of God.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? (Matthew, Chapter 7)
Obviously, almost any religion could be changed if a critical mass of the members of that religion stood up and demanded change. The problem is that most religious organizations are structured in such a way that this is an unlikely event. In most religions, the leadership has almost absolute power, and there is little room for the membership to speak out. Consequently, the members of most religions have been programmed to simply follow the leaders instead of speaking out.
So when it becomes clear that a particular religion has calcified in this age-old pattern of blind leaders and blind followers, the ascended masters have no other option than to call out those who are not the blind followers but who are not sufficient in numbers to create change in their organization. These are the ones who are willing to follow the call:
Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. (Matthew 15:14)
That is why you so often see us call out the awakened members of an old religion and start a new movement in its place. In essence, my website is my attempt to call out those from mainstream Christianity who are no longer the blind followers and who have seen through the fallacy of their blind leaders.
So yes, I am indeed doing that again. The ascended masters are constantly calling out those who have reached the level of spiritual maturity that makes them look to the living truth of God instead of an outer doctrine or organization that appears beautiful on the outside but is inwardly filled with dead men’s bones (Matthew 23:27).
How do you know whether you are one of the called-out ones? You can know so only in your heart, because only your Christ self, speaking to you in your heart, can be reveal truth to you. Listen to the following Bible passage:
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew, Chapter 16)
As I said to Peter, the flesh and blood of your outer mind cannot reveal to you the Presence of the Living Christ and the Living Truth. This can happen only through your Christ self. Yet if you are open to the teachings on this website, have you not already opened yourself to the Living Truth of God? So have you not already realized that I am calling you out?
Finally, let me say that God has assigned me to hold the spiritual office of Savior for all of humankind. It is the assignment of my office to save all lifestreams on earth, within the context of the Law or Free Will. It is my assignment to save all lifestreams, not just the members of one particular religion. And it is not my job to make all people the members of one particular religion. It is my job to raise all people to the level of the Christ consciousness, which is the only key to entering the kingdom of heaven.
In other words, I am concerned about saving individual lifestreams, and I am not concerned about saving this or that church. Look at how many religions have been ground to dust by history. If a religion will not change, it will inevitably die. So those leaders who seek to save their power will lose that power (Matthew 16:25). Only those who are willing to give up their power for my sake – for the sake of finding the Living Truth – will be given the true power of the Christ consciousness.
When you attain the Christ consciousness, you realize that you are a son or daughter of God. It is this sense of identity that gives you access to the kingdom of heaven. You cannot enter the kingdom as long as you identify yourself with any man-made label. In other words, if you see yourself as a Catholic, you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. Even if you see yourself as a Christian, you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. Yet if you see yourself as a Christ, you can indeed enter the kingdom. If you see yourself as a Buddhist you cannot enter the kingdom, but if you see yourself as a Buddha you can indeed enter. Or rather, when you see yourself as the Christ or the Buddha, you are already in the kingdom of heaven.
To enter the kingdom of heaven, you must let go of the flesh and blood of your earthly sense of identity. Therefore, you must let go of all tendency to identify yourself as the member of a particular religion, and you must identify yourself as a member of the universal body of God, as Above so below. This is the true Body of Christ, and I am calling all people to join it.
