JESUS, OUR BROTHER– Somewhere in one of the hymns we sing at Catholic mass, Jesus is referred to as ‘our brother’. I have often wondered how Catholics in general consider that notation—or if they consider it at all. So many hymns and prayers are oft repeated so as to become ritualistic—memorized and repeated without specific thought or attention to meaning. Its much more fun to be critiquing someone’s dress, or hair-do, or replaying the winning hole of golf from yesterday’s game, than to be concentrating on the boring ritual of memorized prayer or song.
Also, somewhere in the Old Testament (I’m too lazy to look it up), one of our Sunday mass scripture readings states that ‘behold, a virgin shall give birth’ (paraphrased). That, of course, is foretelling Jesus’ virgin conception and birth. It is specifically noteworthy that the New Testament writers repeatedly fashioned their stories about Jesus so that such and such happened ‘that the scripture might be fulfilled’. In other words, the dreamy ideas of the Old testament writers had to be brought to living fruition by the Jewish and Greek writers—truth was of no consideration. All of that is completely understandable when we realize that all of their ideas were based on astrology plus the declaration that they could talk directly with God and even bargain with him—at least, that’s what The Old Testament says. I don’t believe it and, in condensed form, I’m about to tell you why.
Jesus is, in fact, our brother. He was made of identically the same particles of energy as you and I. And, as I have elucidated many times before, everything that ever existed in the physical world is made of identically the same energy. Those energy particles are perfect and unchanging just as God is perfect and unchanging—therefore they exist in eternity as does God—they, in fact, are God. I am allowed to say that because I have defined the essence of God—God is a Perfect Rational Being.
God’s Perfect Intellect designed those particles directly from his nature—with his Perfect Will (Love) he made and keeps them perfect. They all exist in eternity as God because of their perfection—yet all of their created objects, including us, exist in a perpetually changing physical world. So, without question, Jesus is brother to us, as well as, to every grain of sand in existence. Does that help you understand your soul?—your soul is God—you are temples of the Holy Spirit, just as Paul said.
The Holy Spirit is not a Paraclete (one who accompanies or walks beside you), the Holy Spirit is in you. No one can ‘impart’ the Holy Spirit upon you—it already does and always has, from the moment of your conception, resided in you—it is your soul, your life giving principle.
Now back to the ‘virgin birth’—from a rational standpoint, it is an impossibility—all so-called physical miracles are an impossibility. In order for a physical miracle to occur, God would have to change his nature—God is Perfect and incapable of changing anything. If he ‘changed’, he would slip out of eternity back into time—there is no time in eternity. Time is a measure of change—eternity is a state of being without change (time).
It is quite obvious to me that, based on the literature we have, no one knew nor understood who Jesus really was, nor what his real message was/is. My deduction tells me Jesus only message was love (acceptance). He asked us to accept God and each other, while he, as a mirror image of God, was accepting the entire universe of selfishness (evil).
Jesus, our brother, was our representative—he was the only entity of the entire reflected image (second person of Trinity) of God to comprehend the presence of God in everything. He was the only entity to see and understand the universal evil of selfishness. He was the only entity to recognize that God’s Perfection demanded Perfect Love. He was the only entity to recognize that Perfect love must be demonstrated—otherwise it was meaningless. He was the only entity to recognize that since he, himself, was the only one to understand that principle, he was the Messiah—he had to pay the price—that, he did willingly.
Jesus was super-genius—Jesus is our brother.
