God

the all-embracing word

The word ‘God’ was brought to earth in order to comprise all the life in the cosmos that Christ got to know in millions of worlds.
Based on the books by Jozef Rulof.
Master Zelanus gave the following explanation for this painting:
‘You could soon call this work ‘God’.
All the life is present in it.
The precious stones that you will see are character traits of the human being who has conquered the truth, justice, the harmony in relation to Mother Nature and the universe and was then able to master this.’

Love instead of hatred

The article ‘Moses and the prophets’ describes how the prophets got to know God as their powerful patron.
When they obeyed God’s commandments, He protected them against the attacks by hostile tribes.
However, those who sinned with random murdering, stealing and threatening, were punished by the Lord with eternal damnation after death.
The article ‘Bible writers’ explains how the writers from the Bible made the punishment by God much greater.
When for instance the prophet Elisha was jeered at and called ‘baldy’ by a group of children, God got two bears from the woods to maul twenty-two children.
In the Bible, this description can be read in 2 Kings 2:23-25.
Another example is where God as a mass murderer destroyed almost all the people on earth by means of the flood (Genesis 6:7), because He was disappointed in them and was sorry that He had made them.
Only Noah and his people were saved, because they lived according to God’s commandments.
The Bible writers did not know that the greatest part of the continents were not flooded, and that millions of people were not troubled by it.
They did not know either that the floods were a result of the natural development of Mother Earth and that this had nothing to do with a punitive god.
On the other hand, Christ talked about God as a Father of Love.
He said: ‘Anyone who takes up the sword will perish by the sword.’
This is not a gospel of battles and hatred, but of love.
He summarised his message with ‘Love one another.’
Christ wanted to abolish the god of revenge and damnation, because He knew that that god did not exist.
He saw that the Bible writers had not interpreted the word of God, but their own limited consciousness.
However, the world did not accept this message of love, and people murdered Christ in order to be able to keep the old God of the Old Testament.

Christ in the All

Christ was the only person on earth who knew exactly what was true and not true of everything that was said about God.
After all, before Christ came to the earth in order to bring his message of love, He had got to know God as Life.
The article ‘the University of Christ’ explains that Christ was already very old as a soul then, because He belonged to the first souls who reached awakening in the universe.
He had experienced all the planets, on which God’s life as human being, animal and plant had reached growth.
He knew the whole cosmos and had evolved along with the first souls to the highest cosmic grade of life, the All.
Having arrived there, they went in search of God:
“And now we will see”, he who will soon be the Messiah says, “now we will see where that father, that mother lives.
Where is that God?
We are father, we are mother; we are giving birth and creating.
It is I, it is you, millions of lives originated.
But where is the voice? Where is the power? Where is the being who created us?”
They go in search of God.
They want to experience that source, that thinking and feeling, they want to experience that, they want to be one with that ... with God.
Who is it?
But they do not meet any being, only themselves.
They do not see any father who is sitting at a table and lets his hammer resound and says: “Just come to me, do you have nothing to say to me?” He cannot be seen there.
Lectures Part 2, 1951
They reached oneness in feeling with the source from which they had originated, the All-Source:
They fall down and now they reach – what they already experienced in the different, the lower grades of life – they reach the Divine oneness with the Divine All, with the All-Source.
The All-Source as father and mother, as light, life, love, soul, spirit, laws of growth, laws of hardening, speaks: “All of this”, that enters them, you see, that is the oneness, the spiritual feeling and experiencing, “all of that which you experienced, I am that, I am you.
You have my life, spatially deep, but I am not a shape.
I have manifested myself by means of you.
I am all of this.
You represent me as material, as light, life, love ... fatherhood and motherhood, but love!”
Well, there the Divine human being stands in his Divine All.
He does not see God as a person.
He does not see a table at which a God will speak justice.
That justice lives in themselves, they are that, because they have conquered the injustice and the destruction.
Lectures Part 2, 1951
When Christ reached the All, the people on earth still lived in the prehistoric age.
Christ wanted to make a start in order to bring those people to a higher feeling and consciousness so that they would refrain from murdering and as a result the suffering on earth would be able to stop one day.
However, because the earthly being still could not grasp much of spiritual realities, a beginning had to be made with one concept, one word:
Then the Masters gathered with the Christ, with the highest Mentor, the highest Conscious Being in the Divine All and said: “How must we include all of this?
How can we receive the human being by means of one word so that the human being gets respect for this Divine All, for the millions of worlds which we experienced and were able to conquer?”
Lectures Part 2, 1951
Then people on earth received that one word:
Yes, in the seventh cosmic grade, that was Christ, and His people wondered: ‘What should we call all of this?’
And then the earth got a name, and it was called God.
Questions and Answers Part 4, 1952
That word comprised all the life:
Christ said for this purpose: “And now back to the earth in order to lay the first foundations.
We have to lay the first foundations in order to be able to receive those masses, those wild, unconscious masses and to place them before all of this.”
And then people experienced the word God.
You can now say: the life.
Lectures Part 2, 1951
It was only in 1944 that the University of Christ could communicate to the earth via Jozef Rulof which spiritual realities lay within the word God:
The All-Source ...
God as Mother
God as Father
God as Soul
God as Life
God as Spirit
God as a Personality
God as Harmonic Laws
God as Material Laws
God as Spiritual Laws
God as the Growing Universe
God as Love
The Divine Spark ...
The Cosmology of Jozef Rulof Part 1, 1944

Our divine spark

From the moment that the Bible writers thought up that God created people, many people started to build on that human image.
When Christ entered the All, the concept of ‘human being’ had not yet been thought up.
He did not feel returned to God either, because as a soul He had never been away from God during his long evolution path.
He had only become divinely conscious of the life that manifests itself through him.
In ‘The Cosmology of Jozef Rulof’, the masters speak of our divine spark.
Our soul is a spark, a part of God and the All-Source.
The more love we feel and give to all the life of God, the more consciously we start to feel which aspects lie within our divine spark.
In the All, every soul finally reaches the realisation that it experiences all the aspects of God itself.
Then it has left the human thinking behind it long ago and it feels that it has always been just a part of God and the All-Source as All-Mother:
What does the All-Mother experience now?
What does God experience?
Both the All-Mother and God experience themselves!
So we have to completely disengage the human existence and the animal-like one.
And that means that God did not create any people, or animals, or flower and plant life, but himself!
