The Living Christ

Lord of all Religions, and of Angels and of Man

Every year you should have grown in the deepening of your recognition of Who the Christ is.
bioReverend Flower A. Newhouse, What All Men May Receive from Christmas

Jesus of Nazareth, known as our Lord Emmanuel—God with us—is a living presence. He is the only begotten son. No one else from our humanity is worthy of so high a calling. Our Lord had the power of excellence, that supreme ability to surrender Himself and give to that which is higher. This excellence, developed through a tremendous cost of self-sacrifice and overcoming, qualified our Lord to become the Christ Officiant of our planet.

Christ taught that as He was, so would we be in following the way He led us.
bioReverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Quest

Our Lord Christ is Hierarch and the model of our own becoming. His service is the broadcasting of the Divine Light, the light of redemption. His influence awakens in us the Christing of our own natures. He is the example of what it means to think, feel, live, and aspire from the Soul plane. This Prince of Peace has unlimited love, force and instruction with which to regenerate our civilization. The Lord Christ, as the beacon of this age, has jurisdiction over the spiritual evolution of all peoples, even those who may not yet know and revere Him. Within His keeping are the keys for the development of this humanity, for He is the Hierarch of all religions in this world.

The Living Christ

The Christ ideal is taught by every Adept, for that ideal stands for human brotherhood, human development, and human perfection. Were we to fully understand the revelations of the Spirit of Wisdom, the many religions and movements in the world would be seen to complement and fulfill one another. Through the widespread application of the Christ principles the world's unrest can be quieted and mastered.

Only a renaissance of the great Message of Christ can guide humanity to safety and progress.
bioReverend Flower A. Newhouse, The Quest

As Jesus He constantly endeavored to teach everyone to remedy, transform, recreate, and master themself. He spoke out of the ancient archives of wisdom that have nurtured Him in long seasons past. He spoke as every great soul who achieved masterhood speaks, and will speak. That evolution is working on us, chiseling and refining us, bringing all its tools of experience to bear on us. As the living spirit of Christ is with us today, He is sending out those same callnotes.

Your highest tribute to the Lord Christ is a worship of His Spirit through the living of His Spirit. Think His thoughts, be reverent before the fountain of His reality, for then you will realize His love and His pleasure throughout your whole being.

He (the Christ) loves us each one so greatly, and His love is universal. It applies to those who are not Christian, just as much as those who are, and that will be forever true. His love, like the love a parent gives a child, can look beyond the rebellion, the disrespect, egotism, whatever is present, to those moments when we yield to the great blessing within us.

Christ Attainment

Toward the Christ attainment we must climb daily. Christhood unfolds in us as we practice its profound realizations:

  • Communion with God.
  • Fellowship with Christ.
  • Awareness of the Holy Comforter.

Christhood is an attainment of these qualities:

  • The Christ Realization - Oneness with God.
  • The Christ Mind - Wisdom.
  • The Christ Attitude - Love.
  • The Christ Principle - Faith.
  • The Christ Word - Perfection.
  • The Christ Power - Righteousness (spiritual right use).
