(Compiled by Emmanuel Asiedu-Mante)
The word CHRIST is a Greek word meaning anointed. One becomes a “christed” or anointed soul when that soul attains the ascension which is the goal or purpose of life.
The ascension which is reunion with God was experienced by:
- Enoch of whom it is written, “he walked with God, and he was not, for God took him”. (Gen. 5:24)
- Elijah who “went up by a whirlwind into heaven”. (2 Kings 2:11)
- Jesus, who was taken up in a cloud into heaven. (Acts 1:9)
These and many more souls have attained the ascension and have therefore become “christed” souls. People confuse the Universal Christ with the identity of the man Jesus. There is one Universal Christ. And the Universal Christ is individualized for each of us in the person of our higher self, our personal Holy Christ Self.
Jesus had the Christ in him, as we all do. But he was called “Jesus the Christ” because he embodied the fullness of the Universal Christ. As the apostle Paul wrote of Jesus, “in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily”. (Col 2:9)
God didn’t create Jesus Christ and then turn around and make all of us beggars. He created all the people on the planet for the same purpose – to become the Christ. Every one of us can become the Christ; God does not have a favorite son; we are all favorite sons. If it were not so, we would have very little hope for redemption.
The Ascended Master Jesus Christ
The Ascended Master Jesus Christ is the great avatar and the hierarch of the Piscean Age. As such, he is the perfect example of highly honored master in the ranks of cosmic hierarchy. In his Palestinian embodiment, he realized the fullness of Christ consciousness and was therefore called “Jesus Christ.” He came to reveal the Christ Self to humanity and to be an example of that which we can all become – the fullness of our own individual Christ Self. As part of his mission, he demonstrated the steps on the path of personal Christhood, including the crucifixion, the resurrection and the ascension. He thus showed us how to reunite with the I AM Presence as the ultimate goal of the spiritual path.
Several of Jesus’ embodiments are documented in the Old Testament. He was Joshua, commander of the Hebrew armies and the successor of Moses. He was also Joseph, who was also sold into slavery by his brothers and later became the viceroy of Egypt. He became famous as David, King of Israel. And he was Elisha, disciple and successor of the Hebrew prophet Elijah.
Jesus Christ was also embodied as the emperor and high priest of a golden-age civilization on Atlantis in 33,000 B.C. He ruled with his companion and twin flame, whom we know today as the ascended Lady Master Magda. In that golden age, more than fifty percent of the people were bonded to their Holy Christ Self.
Bonding With The Holy Christ Self
As one makes progress on the spiritual path, he comes closer and closer to his Holy Christ Self. Through a gradual increase in higher consciousness and self-transcendence, he can eventually achieve what is known as the bonding to the Christ Self. This bonding is a precursor to the ascension, when the soul is united with the I AM Presence. The bonding process is called the “alchemical marriage,” because through it the seeker becomes one with the Christ. This marriage means there is no separation between the soul and the Holy Christ Self – the two have become joined. When this occurs, the student walks the earth as a Christed, or anointed one.
