“Humanity is still searching for contact with intelligent beings from outer space. In startling clarity the scriptures I read in the Bible state they have actually already arrived!

Think of it! In recent history, they have come as non-aggressively as we can possibly imagine–through the birth of a baby born to a human mother.”¹

Did the birth of Jesus Christ introduce us to the Son of God?

Jesus said his father was a supernatural omnipotent God from the heavens, or in current lingo – from outer space. Actually, the immaculate conception sounds like our current medical procedure of artificial insemination! After all,  how else can a virgin become pregnant? Virgin women can today, and Mary somehow did when an angel visited her.

“How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”
The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God...
“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.  Luke 1:34-38 NIV Bible

Angels visiting from heaven? What if we said energy beings from outer space? Some people will find that easier to believe. Younger generations now view the cosmos on a grand scale and see the vast possibilities of an Infinite Intelligence in the very design of our galaxy. They believe in some sort of Higher Power and they want the ability to tap into an inner power.

God in 21stChristianity doesn’t seem relevant to a lot of people, because really, telling them to “give your heart to Jesus and he will save you,” just doesn’t work anymore in our culture. Anyone under 30 will probably ask, “Who is this Jesus you’re talking about? And what’s he going to save me from?”

Demons, angels, sin, kingdom, saviour, crucifixion – are old religious terms. That jargon turns people off because they don’t understand what you mean.

Maybe it’s time to upgrade our operating system with new terms for a  21st Century Christianity. Download the 2.1 version today to update the doctrinal foundations of your corporate and personal faith!

I’m being a little facetious and of course, we have to take care not to distort the truths given to us in scripture. I want to give you some revamped terms to consider because you can spread the good news/the gospel to those outside the church a little easier by using modern language. People are dropping out of churches at an alarming rate BUT they are still hungry for truth, for Christian-style spiritual enlightenment!

Heaven =Outer Space, the Cosmos

Angels =Energy Beings aligned with God

God = the Source, the Higher Power, Universal Love

God the Father = The Creator

Immaculate conception = Artificial insemination

Jesus = God in human form

Christ = Anointed with metaphysical power (It’s not his last name!)

Saviour, Redeemer = Liberator, Rescuer

Crucifixion = Execution of Jesus the Christ

Resurrection = Reincarnation into Spirit form

Spirituality = Alignment with Holy Spirit

Faith = Powerful confidence in your belief system

Demons = Dark forces

Evil = Immoral actions

Sin = Unloving actions

Kingdom of God = Government of God

Love = Aw, this still equals Love – This one hasn’t changed a bit!

––––––––––––––––––––––––––– ♥ Heart Thoughts ♥ ––––––––––––––––––

I hope you base your faith on a strong belief system in the Creator, the Source of Infinite Intelligence, the source of all LOVE. I hope you interface with the Ambassador, God in the flesh sent down to earth from the cosmos, who proposes an alliance between humanity and the Celestial government of Higher Beings.

(Translation: Believe in God, the God of love, and accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour so you can be saved and inherit the kingdom!)

Hugs to all of you!

nativityI think God is big enough to surprise us all. Nobody can unwrap the full package of understanding an all-knowing God, but Love and Peace in the Christmas time of year are pretty basic concepts.

And it’s looking a lot like Christmas time around here…
and many have celebrated the birth of the one who birthed Christianity.

What makes Jesus Christ different from other prophets and the holy men of old?

His followers call him the Son of God. Yet in the Bible, Jesus called himself the Son of Man. He was described as Christ because he seemed to be christened with a supernatural power. But most important, what he taught – is honoured by many religions in today’s world.

Did you know verses in the Koran also talk about the birth of Jesus by a virgin named Mary (Qur’an, Surah 3:38-48). Muslims believe Jesus was a great prophet and to be highly respected. But how can that story be in both  these two great religions? Because Jesus Christ said some outrageous things that are hard to believe!

* Jesus said he came down from heaven (outer-space) to give us good news about a  Kingdom of God ( a government headed by God).

* He claimed God was his father and that we too can be brothers and sisters to him (children of God).

* Jesus Christ said he can forgives our sins, heals our diseases, and free us from oppression.

* He said promised if we believe in what he says, we’ll live into eternity.

Click the links above and read them for yourself. Can all this really be true? Why do we celebrate Christmas if we don’t even believe what Christ said? How can Muslims respect and honoured him as a great prophets if he’s lying? Because if his words are not true, then Jesus Christ is a liar.

shepherds-in-the-presence-of-godI want to look closely at the words Jesus gave us, especially in this season when we celebrate a supernatural star in the heavens appearing to announce stupendous good news! Especially when he promised to return!

What if it is all true and Jesus Christ did come down to humanity as an ambassador from a government on a planet somewhere in the heavens?

And what if he comes again?

Stars arising from bookJesus read from the scroll of the prophet Isaiah:
 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.”
Luke 4:17-19, Isaiah 61:1,2 (see Septuagint); Isaiah 58:6 NIV Bible

“This luminous mass first appeared to be moving, then stopped at a specific time and place. What star does that? History tells us there were Magi, influential learned men who first sighted it and traveled to follow it. …the star they had seen in the east (or when it rose) went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. (Matthew 2:9) If these men had our vocabulary, perhaps they would have claimed it was a UFO that had come down from the heavens. A host of celestial entities gave them a fantastic message—that the savior of the whole human race had been born (Luke 2:12), a child who was part God, part man and sent to us as a celestial ambassador. This was and is good news because we and our planet still need saving. Praise God that they deem us scrawny human beings worthy enough to be saved!”

Is Jesus Christ going to return? Will God destroy the world? Will only believers be saved? One of my blog fans wrote to me asking these very things. And they seem hard questions to answer but not if we check the original source – Jesus answered them!

Higher Power is only discovered when it is absolutely necessary. Well, out in the middle of the isolated Canadian wilderness, a hundred miles from the nearest town, I discovered the source of this power. I wasn’t afraid anymore! Not quite traditional Christian doctrine, but the pieces all fit together and answered my questions. My faith became an active powerful force!

From Kirkus Reviews: "Familiar concepts, sure, but Rozek’s unconventional perspective makes them seem invigoratingly new."

KIRKUS REVIEW

A passionate rereading of Christianity and the nature of personal faith.

Canadian author Rozek’s debut takes the form of an enthusiastic top-to-bottom re-envisioning of the Christian mythos. ….she goes back to the Bible with fresh eyes and reads it anew in search of the answers to basic questions such as “Why am I here?” or “What’s the purpose of life anyway?”

Rozek’s conceptual revamping of traditional biblical ideas ultimately appeals to the well-known Christian narrative: Jesus died as a sacrifice and as a living key to redemption. “By accepting the death of this Great One as a ransom for our freedom,” Rozek writes, “each of us can belong to something far greater than ourselves.” The book then broadens from this dramatized 21st-century recasting of the Messiah story to include some intriguingly wider suggestions for how the faithful of any denomination can find meaning: “The Great Ones know that in order for us to have abundant lives, we must first learn how to love.”

Familiar concepts, sure, but Rozek’s unconventional perspective makes them seem invigoratingly new. A well-written and welcoming take on the traditional tenets of Western religion.

We can’t nativityknow all there is to know about an all-knowing God. Nobody gets downloaded the full package but I think God is big enough to work through all religions. After all, love and peace are pretty basic concepts for those who believe in a Power Higher than themselves.

The Celestial Proposal

Our Invitation to join the God Kind

by
Jane Catherine Rozek

A passionate rereading of Christianity and the nature of personal faith.

Canadian author Rozek’s debut takes the form of an enthusiastic top-to-bottom re-envisioning of the Christian mythos. Rozek cites such influences as C. S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters (1942), Erich von Däniken’s Chariots of the Gods (1970) and the Christian-mystic writings of Zecharia Sitchin as she goes back to the Bible with fresh eyes and reads it anew in search of the answers to basic questions such as “Why am I here?” or “What’s the purpose of life anyway?” She views these questions as central to “the game of life” and tells her readers, “To get to the ultimate level, we must play it seriously with all the skills we have.” The schema of quasi–Judeo-Christian faith she derives from her readings is personal and interactive. She reminds her readers that the Bible is full of references to heavenly interactions with the lives of humans, and in her view, this is a necessary thing. “Our world today still needs celestial intervention desperately.” That intervention comes about at the behest of “the Great Ones”—“a collection of benevolent, celestial God-beings: the Source, the Son and Spirit.” She also spends a good deal of time on forerunners and servants, the supernatural beings known as angels. Rozek’s conceptual revamping of traditional biblical ideas ultimately appeals to the well-known Christian narrative: Jesus died as a sacrifice and as a living key to redemption. “By accepting the death of this Great One as a ransom for our freedom,” Rozek writes, “each of us can belong to something far greater than ourselves.” The book then broadens from this dramatized 21st-century recasting of the Messiah story to include some intriguingly wider suggestions for how the faithful of any denomination can find meaning: “The Great Ones know that in order for us to have abundant lives, we must first learn how to love.” Familiar concepts, sure, but Rozek’s unconventional perspective makes them seem invigoratingly new.

A well-written and welcoming take on the traditional tenets of Western religion.

Statue in the Rain

(I want to be…) Drenched in Spirit

(Open letter to a friend) Hi dear,

»Question #101

It sounds like you’re asking me what I think, so here goes: Your reasoning and the questions you asked were exactly why I wrote the book! The mechanics of utilizing power from believing in God/Jesus Christ was beyond me too. “Yah, OK, he died for me. He’s supposed to save me but what is he saving me from? Maybe he lives in me, whatever that means, but how does that change anything?”

When we translate one key word in “Christianese” into plain old English it clarifies things! We talk about Jesus Christ, but we have to realize that the word Christ is NOT his last name. It’s more like his nickname! According to any bible concordance and dictionary, Christ means “the anointed or the anointing”. The word, anoint means to daub with oil or smear on a powerful substance. Jesus is called The Christ because he was anointed with power from a celestial realm. All his friends saw that he had something different about him. So much so, that they also called him the Son of God.

The word christen is used today when we christen a person with a new name of notable character, or when we break a bottle of champagne over the bow of a ship to christen its maiden voyage.

So, when you start to read the timeless verses in the New Testament, try substituting the word Christ with the one anointed with power or the powerful anointing when you come across the word Christ. It’s pretty neat. IF CHRIST IS IN YOU then an anointing from a celestial realm is in you. If Christ lives in us, we are sent out with metaphysical power! Whew!

Hey, that came out good. If you don’t mind, I think I’ll put it on my blog! I’ll try to answer your other questions soon.

Love you dear.

PS. Here’s a fascinating passage!  Colossians 1:26-28

…the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people. To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.
