There are two aspects of God, the universal and the personal aspect. Most people know a lot about one aspect but little of the other.
The universal aspect of God is the Universal Power we can use at will. The personal aspect of God is the Person of God moving as He Wills.
Universal power is mental power. It is the divine nature of our being when God created us. It is the power within us that is a reflection of the omnipotent. As we are created in the image of God, we have the universal aspect of God within our spirit. We are creators of our own reality, the microcosm in the same way as God created the entire universe, the macrocosm. Man is to rule his world like God governs the universe.
The universal aspect of God is the realm of inspiration, creativity and genius. It is the power of the universal mind that is accessible by everyone without exception. The individual mind is connected to the universal mind by thought. The ability to think makes us conscious creators. The better a person is able to think, the more intelligent he is. Intelligence is what separates one level of being from another. We are all equal aspects of God’s creation, but we all manifest his power at varying degrees.
Thought and Knowledge are one. Thought leads to knowledge and knowledge influences thought. Choice is an illusion created by those in control for those who are not. To be in control, you must know. It is knowing how things work and understanding what is going on that gives you awareness of the governing dynamics of reality. It is awareness that puts you in a position of being a master player instead of a pawn on a chessboard.
Mental power is spiritual power because Mind and Spirit are One and the Same. With the power of the universal mind, you can accomplish all miracles and do great things. The power is a natural power because it follows natural laws. We might think that certain things defy natural laws but that is because we are seeing things from only one level. Natural laws exist on every plane of reality, both the physical as well as the mental planes. Laws of the lower plane are governed by laws of the higher plane. Therefore everything supernatural is actually natural when we have an understanding of a multidimensional universe.
The universal laws are essentially the whole process of Divinity, Consciousness or Energy in motion (Emotion). When we understand these laws and apply them in our life anything we want can be created. Because the same laws that nature uses to create a forest or a galaxy or a human body can also bring about the fulfillment of all our desires.
All things in the universe have a connection with the universal mind. Nothing can exist without that connection. It is the universal mind by which all things consist and have their being. We are connected to everything else through the universal mind. Separation is an illusion for we are all one.
We can use our mind at will. All power is within and is absolutely within our control. This is referring to mental power which is the universal aspect of God. We can all train and develop our skill in using mental power. Visualization, affirmation, reality creation, mental influence, hypnosis, sublime messaging and subconscious programming are all forms of using mental power.
Using mental power to make things happen is what the concept of True Magic is fundamentally about. Magic is the control of the visible world through invisible means. Magic in its absolute form is purely mental. Magic could be more properly referred to as Manifestation. What you create in your mind becomes manifested in physical reality over time. The Law of Attraction is whatever you focus on most of the time, you get. That is why we all create our individual realities by the thoughts we think.
Holistic health and alternative medicine use Magic to manifest healing. Our physical bodies are simply channels of our energy bodies. Consciousness affects our state of being in all aspects. It is the metaphysical understanding of bodily function in holistic health surpassing the understanding of formal medical science that enables curing of many incurable diseases and physical conditions.
The universal power of mental Magic is neutral. It can be used for either good or evil. What differentiates between Black Magic and White Magic is the intent of the user. Just like a person can pray another well, a person can also pray another sick. Sending thoughts of love, joy, peace, well being and happiness to someone will influence that person’s mind in a positive way. Sending thoughts of intimidation, discord, doubt, weakness and discouragement will influence his mind in a negative way.
Realizing the psychic nature of our thoughts and learning how to use them consciously and effectively enables us to be much better at creating the reality we desire in account of the greatest good of all. There is nothing wrong with developing our psychic abilities and expressing our God given powers for the betterment of life and the universe, but the problem comes when we are so content with the universal aspect of God that we overlook or deny the existence of the personal aspect of God completely.
Knowledge of the universal aspect of God is enough to give us tremendous amount of power to rule the universe and achieve our dreams, desires, destiny and almost everything we could ever want in this life on Earth. But there is the personal aspect of God that we should come to know about. It is more than just using our God given natural divine powers. It is about having a relationship with Him.
There is a personal God and He is the personal aspect. Theosophy, New Age, Gnosis and various other religions and philosophies deny the existence of a personal God. They believe that there cannot be a personal God because God is infinite and a personality is finite. They believe that the universal mind can only manifest through the individual mind and not on its own.
The truth is that the trinity of the Godhead are three distinct individualities. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three actual persons. To have a relationship with God is to relate with the personal aspect of God. It is the Universal aspect of God that is infinite but the personal aspect of God is finite. God has a fixed personality that has boundaries without variableness or shadow of turning. God cannot lie, God is love, and God is holy. The person of God is only perfect and complete good. In him is no evil.
For such a reason as this, God cannot coexist with sin in his presence. Anything that has sin is separated from the personal aspect of God although it is still connected to the Universal aspect. Understanding this is what solves the paradox between Theosophy and Christianity. We are all connected to God and can draw inspiration from the universal aspect of the divine but we cannot have true fellowship with Him unless we are washed by the blood of Jesus Christ.
Salvation is of two aspects: Salvation from ignorance through knowledge (Gnosis – Learning) and Salvation from sins through knowledge (Oida – To Know fully) and belief of Jesus Christ as God and Savior.
John 8:32 and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Why does Theosophy, New Age and Gnosis contain so much knowledge about the nature of the Universe and God to the extent that it makes Christianity appear as if we know so little? The reason is because one side has been focusing mainly on the universal aspect of God while the other has been focusing mainly on the personal aspect.
The question is who is The One at work manipulating world events and making things happen that way? The person can be none other than the most powerful heavenly being in the universe. The one who was full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. His name means Bringing Light. His name is Lucifer the anointed cherub. Who else has all knowledge of the universe and the different planes of reality than him? Who else knows more about the nature of God than him?
But being the greatest in heaven, he chose to think that he could be like the most High. He desired to exalt his throne above the stars of God but Jesus cast him out of heaven. Lucifer fell like lightning from heaven because he had sinned against God with his wrong thinking and ignorance. Though he was full of wisdom, he still had the free will to choose his thoughts. He chose to think wrongly and hence sinned through ignorance. Wrong thinking is ignorance and ignorance is the only evil that leads to all other forms of evil.
And now the Bringer of Light is at work making people believe that there is no God or that God exist but it is the God of a greater scope than the God of Christianity. His intention is to make spiritual people focus purely on the universal aspect of God and deny the personal aspect of God. By denying God as a personality, the person of Jesus Christ as God is denied. The Angel of Light’s grand scheme is to make people develop themselves spiritually in of the universal aspect of God and then inserting himself in one name or another somewhere along the path as the God they should believe in.
Lucifer knows that he cannot make a direct lie be a universally accepted truth. Therefore he knows that the best thing he can do is to promote the truth, not the whole but a portion. He knows that a lie cannot contend with the truth, therefore the art of deception is not to enforce the lie but to conceal the truth. The lie can be enforced when the truth is hidden. The way to conceal the truth is to control the vision that looks upon it, by making it focus on one area and away from another. Magician’s misdirection. The portion of the truth that is missing can be replaced with error that can be complemented with the remaining portion of the truth creating the perfect illusion.
2 Corinthians 13:8 for we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
His other intention is to keep the Christians in as much ignorance as possible about the Universal aspect of God. The less knowledge they have about the Universal aspect, the less power they have. Lucifer makes Christians believe all kinds of things are satanic, evil and not of God when those things truly belong to God and not him. He even uses scripture and the law of God to make people shun away from knowledge considered to be doctrines of devils. The truth is, truth is mixed with error in every place. What good is light among light? Christians are called to be a light among darkness.
Many symbols that belong to God are neither good nor evil, even though Lucifer may have made use of them in his own works. The serpent was created by God as the most subtle creature in the garden. The entire sign of the Zodiac from Virgo to Leo was placed by God in the heavens to tell the story of salvation and Jesus Christ. Virgo represents the Virgin Mary and Leo represents Jesus as the victorious Lion of Judah. All angels are angels of light. Lucifer is no longer really an Angel of Light but a Prince of Darkness.
Lucifer was God’s greatest creation which had fallen. He believed that he could be like God because he and God were made of the same substance which is consciousness. He persuaded all of heaven’s angels to join him in becoming like God against the permission of the Godhead by claiming that the trinity was egoistical to disallow any other being to be their equal. He only succeeded in turning a third of the angels to his cause and fought against God but they lost. Lucifer became Satan, which means Adversary of God. He was cast out of heaven and into the earth where God had created Man.
Revelation 12:7-9 and there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Lucifer did the same thing with Man that he did with Angels. He told Adam and Eve that they could become God if they ate the forbidden fruit so that they would know good and evil like God. God had originally given Man dominion over the earth but when Lucifer got Man to sin against God, Man’s dominion was shared with Satan. The fall of Man gave place of the world throne to Lucifer. That is why Satan could tempt Jesus with the deal of sharing ownership of the material kingdom if Jesus would worship him.
Satan may be the god of this world, but God is still the ultimate owner of the material world. Whatever we as Christians touch in the material world becomes redeemed by the blood of Jesus. Jesus had come to redeem perfect purity of Man and God’s shared dominion of the material. To us nothing is secular, everything is sacred.
Titus 1:15 unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
There are only two to think about in this world, Jesus and Lucifer. The two are not the same. When you are not thinking of one, you are not aware of what he is doing and may attribute his work to the other. Keep the two in mind so that you can keep them separate. For every matter there is antimatter, but Light and Anti Light are exactly alike. True Light is pure and never changing. Anti Light shifts one degree beyond light and changes into pure darkness which is at the other extreme end of the polarity. Nothing can be above God. God is the highest; to go beyond the highest is to fall into the lowest.
Universal Knowledge is Universal Power. For this reason, the Children of the world are wiser than Children of Light. It is time for the Christians to be wise as serpents and use the Angel of Light’s tactics against himself. The tables have to be turned around against the Lucifer. We are the greater serpents, just like the serpent of Moses rod that ate up all the serpents of Pharaoh’s magicians. The wisest Children of Light are those that truly understand both the Universal and Personal aspect of God.
