Jesus Is Not Coming Back
You should've seen this coming.
This is just one of many objective ramifications that resulted from a rational analysis of beliefs using my God-given gift of analysis. I was born this way, insanely curious about how things work.
This conclusion goes against all beliefs most Christians hold, but if you're waiting for Jesus to return then you're just another person who is wasting their gifts. God has no use for you according to the parable of the talents. (Matthew 25:14–30).
The person who received 1 talent devalued their gift by comparing it with those who received more, so they buried it. People make the same old stupid mistakes time and again when they look outside of themselves instead of looking inward at their own divinity. Every single human being is a member of the body of Christ whether they believe in God, Jesus, Willy Wonka or none of the above.
In fact, the only divine being you should believe in is you. You were created in God's image, which means you are like God. Not believing this to be the case is the root of all evil because if you don't believe you are like God, then who are you-just another person wasting their energy digging a hole and walking away from who God created them to be.
The reason that Jesus condemns this person is because they are incapable of loving others as themselves; if they loved themselves, they would value themselves and put their gifts to use in loving others. In short, selfish people cannot carry out the greatest command to love others.
This includes people who teach the traditional literal thinking that Jesus is coming back, but Jesus is clear: you don't know what day that is. You don't know what shape or form that 'the day of the Lord' will take. You're missing the whole point of your existence: love others.
So, Revelations. Jesus comes back to undo everything that he stood for? Jesus the Lover turns into Jesus the Cop/Lawyer/Judge? Clearly, the idea of Jesus coming back to 'finish the job' is a political meme fixated on litigating itself, meaning that line of thinking is intellectual suicide. All politics are of course because the law and love are mutually exclusive to each other.
The law concerns itself with external governance. Hence all of the Christians who blindly obey whatever the governors tell them. Love concerns itself with self-governing principles. Obedience to the 10 Commandments may make one morally virtuous, but obedience never bears the fruits of the spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control/self-governance. Against these there are no restrictions.
No restrictions of any kind. This is another way of articulating that all things are possible for him who believes. There's just a single requirement for a miracle to be done for you: believe that it is possible. Ask and receive.
Believing in God, Jesus, accepting Jesus in your heart, going to church every Sunday, daily Bible studies, prayer groups, obedience to laws, none of this will result in the miracle that you already are.
None of the things that Jesus said or did is featured in the traditional beliefs in Revelations. Jesus is not coming back. No need to wait for anything. Instead, believe in who you were created to be. Be that completely. Don't hold back. If your own family members hate you for it, it's because they don't love themselves.
The entire Bible can be summed up as believe in you. When you believe in you you are able to to love others. Love is the only thing that requires one to give it away before one can know what it is.
As outlined here, beliefs create all ways of thinking (modalities) about anything. Twenty One words that will remove the final veil of your understanding of the universe regardless. Loving your neighbor prevents corruption of everything.
This brings to me to one of the most crucial aspects of the Bible and religion in general: epigenetics beliefs.
Since beliefs predate every humans' birth by hundreds of years, it's folly to believe in the Bible because it contains ways of thinking-beliefs about beliefs-that are thousands of years old reflecting various cultural/linguistic modalities that bear witness to their time periods. Extrapolating those beliefs to our contemporary context is pointless.
This is true now just as it was then. Jesus' ministry features a consistent theme of contradicting the epigenetic beliefs, what we call traditional or mainstream beliefs. These beliefs persist to this very day and hinge on the definition of a single word. Using my analytical gifts to bear on the topic of 'how beliefs work' is what enabled me to see that the traditional definition of 'sin' ironically missed the mark.
The traditional definition: moral failing.
Slightly better: missing the mark.
Best: believing the wrong things about yourself; specifically: believing you are not like God, not created in God's image.
If you believe-like Eve did,-that you are not created like God, then you will feel it (fear), think it (doubt) and act it (moral failing).
This what 'missing the mark' actually means. Moral failing is symptomatic with wrong beliefs about yourself. Obedience to laws/morals without recognizing one's wrong beliefs about their Self results in misery and societal breakdown.
This is exactly the context that Jesus is born into. Thousands of rotting corpses hanging on Roman crosses was symptomatic of the Pharisees ignoring the greatest command (Leviticus 19:9–18) in favor of obedience to an ever expanding list of laws that the Rabbis insisted everyone follow but they themselves didn't because they were lawmakers.
In the entire history of humanity, laws have never resulted in a change of behavior. Believing that disobedience to laws is the root of their chief problem-the hundreds of years of Roman occupation of Jerusalem-kept the Rabbis and the Jewish people in a corrupted state. The answer was always under their noses, but their wrong beliefs blinded them; they were never able to see that all that was required was to love.
This is what Jesus was up against. To think that obedience to laws will result in whatever condition we are facing is utterly fucking hell on Earth:
"But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in people's faces. For you neither enter yourselves nor allow those who would enter to go in. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel across sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves." Matthew 23: 13–15
Yet that's exactly what Conservatives have been preaching for decades. Be moral and God will bless you. Give us money and God will bless you. Do this thing and God will bless you.
Jesus is not coming back. He's already here, but because Christians have welded their beliefs to thousands of years old beliefs about God, life, love, the Universe, they do not recognize that the day of the Lord is already here!
Rapture has already happened, but because Christians are so damned certain that they know what's what, they don't recognize the mass poisoning of planet that man was put in charge of (Gen. 1:26–30) will wipe out humanity.
Because most people don't believe that all humans were created with the power of belief, the power that lets them manifest heaven on Earth (Matt. 6:10, 18:19), the power that anyone can use for good just by believing that they can and that anything is possible, we consistently manifest hell instead of heaven.
Believe in you. Believe in who you were created to be. Reach out to the least amongst you wherever you are. Be kind, be curious, love others.
