DEFINITION | THE NAZARENE» was a messenger of the Great Spirit who came into your world of matter in order to fulfill a mission of the Great Spirit. He fulfilled his mission on Earth, but has not yet fulfilled the rest of his mission, which is still being directed from the world of spirit.
The bible, as you call it is a great book. But, there is a greater Bible. It is the universe, which is sustained by the laws of the great spirit. From that, you can learn far more than any book in your world of matter, however great it may be, however respected it may be, however revered it may be.
The spirit that worked through the Nazarene is still at work, seeking to continue the work it started two thousand years ago. The spirit has since evolved and there is now a far greater spiritual consciousness expressed through him than there was in the earthly incarnation, for the amount that he expressed then had to be in consonance with the limitation of his day. There has never been any through whom the laws have revealed themselves at so great an intensity as through the Nazarene. Not even in two thousand years. The Nazarene was the greatest manifestation of the Great Spirit that your world has ever received. But we do not reverence the man as he incarnated on Earth. We pay tribute to the power which operated through him. We recognise that the man is only entitled to respect in so far as he was the instrument for the power of the spirit.
