"Lord Jesus, who is your Father?"Shri Jesus immediately replied ...


"Kash agreed to pass these suggestions to the Great Divine Mother. He meditated and the energy of the Holy Spirit of God, residing at the roots of the Tree of Life within him traveled all the way up and blossomed into the Thousand Petalled Lotus. He emerged through the clouds and slowly floated into his ethereal body that was meditating beside the Great Primordial Mother. He stood up and, after exchanging greetings with the Supreme Mater Sanctissima, told Her that he wanted to see Shri Jesus. She agreed and both traveled through the universe to His place.

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi slowed down as they approached His abode. A short distance away Kash could see that Shri Jesus was in deep meditation, His massive spiritual body poised magnificently on the soft cloud cover. It was a sight to behold, a Divine Being powerful beyond all human imagination, sitting in utter peace and egoless humility. The entire atmosphere was charged with spiritual Energy, Silence and Bliss.

When they came near Shri Jesus came out of meditation and got up to receive them. He was dressed in a one-piece light gray dress that extended to His ankles, like a robe. There was another piece of cloth, also light gray, that was draped across His right shoulder down to the left waist.

After exchanging greetings all of them sat down. Kash then asked the Spirit of the Living God again if he could ask Shri Jesus some questions. The Great Holy Spirit smiled and told him to go ahead. Kash first posed this question to Shri Christ," Lord Jesus, who is your Father?"Shri Jesus immediately replied," The Spirit is My Father." "

Shri Adi Shakti: The Kingdom Of God, page 1566

Shri Jesus clearly admitted that His Father is the Spirit. So He is definitely the Son of His Father, the Spirit.

But why do all - Shri Ganesha, Jesus, Hanuman, Sita, Rama, Buddha, Radha, Krishna, Shiva, Prophet Muhammad, Guru Nanak and others - meditate only on the Holy Spirit/Shakti/Ruh? The answer is the Spirit/God Almighty/Brahman and His Holy Spirit/Spirit/Shakti are one and the same.

The Spirit/God Almighty/Brahman exists within us as The Light which is always above His Holy Spirit/Spirit/Shakti. At all times Shri Ganesha, Jesus, Hanuman, Sita, Rama, Buddha, Radha, Krishna, Shiva, Prophet Muhammad, Guru Nanak and others meditate on the Spirit/God Almighty/Brahman (Father) and His Holy Spirit/Spirit/Shakti (Mother).

This Truth has been witnessed hundreds of times over the years. It is part and parcel of the Divine Message to humanity. One day even the purely monotheistic Muslims will realize why the Qur'n addresses the Divine as"We"," Us"And"Our." This duality is constantly repeated throughout the Qur'an but even this black and white scriptural evidence has been twisted into a most grotesque untruth. Like Christians, Muslims too have used all the theological tricks at their disposal, and blatant lies as well, to convince themselves that His Ruh is Angel Grabriel! We will cross this bridge when it comes, and all others over the years. There is indeed a lot of ground that needs to be covered and challenges issued to the fundamentalist guardians of religious regimes who keep their followers as spiritually ignorant, theologically indoctrinated and religiously narrow-minded as themselves.




In his nature God is pure spirit.

"In his nature God is pure spirit. Very early in his self-disclosure as the author of the created universe, God is represented as the Spirit who brought light out of darkness, and order out of chaos (Gn. 1:2-3). Christ made this disclosure of God as the object of our worship to the woman of Samaria: "God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and truth." (Jn. 4:24). Between these two affirmations there are frequent references to the nature of God as pure spirit and as divine spirit. He is called the Father of spirits (Heb. 12:9), and the combination 'the Spirit of the living God' is frequently used.

In this respect we must distinguish between God and his creatures that are spiritual. When we say that God is pure spirit, it is to emphasize that he is not part spirit and part body as man is. He is simple spirit without form or parts, and for that reason he has no physical presence. When the Bible speaks of God as having eyes, ears, hands and feet, it is an attempt to convey to us the senses that these physical parts convey, for if we do not speak of God in physical terms we could not speak of him at all. This, of course, does not imply any imperfection in God. Spirit is not a limited or restricted form of existence, it is the perfect unit of being. When we say that God is infinite spirit, we pass completely out of the reach of our experience. We are limited as to the time and place, as to knowledge and power. God is essentially unlimited, and every element of his nature is unlimited. His infinity as to time we call his eternity, as to knowledge his omniscience, as to power his omnipotence."

Aaron-Golan, The Illustrated Bible Dictionary, Part 3,
Tyndale House Publishers, 1980, p. 569.




God is spirit. This defines His substance.

A Samaritan woman once asked Jesus where her people should worship God - on Mount Gerizim, as had been their custom, or in Jerusalem. John 4:20. The underlying question was whose religion was correct, stated in terms of the proper place for worship. To this question, Jesus replied:

Woman, believe me, the hour comes, when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, will you worship the Father. You worship that which you don't know. We worship that which we know; for salvation is from the Jews. But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to be his worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. John 4:21-24 (WEB).

Thus, Jesus answer to the question in what place God should be worshipped was not a physical place at all. Rather, it was a spiritual place or condition - in spirit and in truth. Further, the reason God seeks to be worshipped not in a physical temple but in spirit is that God is spirit. This defines God's substance.

Spirit is like wind or breath

In order to understand what it means that God is spirit, a linguistic observation should first be made. The Hebrew word commonly translated"spirit"has as its primary meaning"breath." (2) Indeed, the King James translators render this word as"breath"In twenty six places. (3) Further, in three passages(4) this Hebrew word, as applied to God, is stated in direct parallel to another word which is rendered"breath"or &wind." (5) Moreover, in John 4:21-24, quoted above, the Greek word pneuma(6) , the primary meaning of which is"breath," "Breeze"or"Wind," is rendered"spirit"three times. Pneuma is, indeed, the only word used to refer to the spirit of God or of a man in the New Testament(7). The spirits of both God and men are directly compared to the wind in John 3:5-8 (WEB):

Jesus answered," Most certainly I tell you, unless one is born of water and spirit, he can't enter into the Kingdom of God! That which is born of the flesh is flesh. That which is born of the (8) Spirit is spirit. Don't marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born anew.' The wind blows where it wants to, and you hear its sound, but don't know where it comes from and where it is going. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."

THE APOCALYPSE OF THE SPIRIT-PARACLETE
The fulfillment of the promised divine eschatological instruction
“The original meaning of the word ‘apocalypse’, derived from the Greek apokalypsis, is in fact not the cataclysmic end of the world, but an ‘unveiling’, or ‘revelation’, a means whereby one gains insight into the present.” (Kovacs, 2013, 2) An apocalypse (Greek: apokalypsis meaning “an uncovering”) is in religious contexts knowledge or revelation, a disclosure of something hidden, “a vision of heavenly secrets that can make sense of earthly realities.” (Ehrman 2014, 59)
Shri Mataji
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923-2011) was Christian by birth, Hindu by marriage, and Paraclete by duty.
“The Paraclete will come (15:26; 16:7, 8, 13) as Jesus has come into the world (5:43; 16:28; 18:37)... The Paraclete will take the things of Christ (the things that are mine, ek tou emou) and declare them (16:14-15). Bishop Fison describes the humility of the Spirit, 'The true Holy Spirit of God does not advertise Herself: She effaces Herself and advertises Jesus.' ...
It is by the outgoing activity of the Spirit that the divine life communicates itself in and to the creation. The Spirit is God-in-relations. The Paraclete is the divine self-expression which will be and abide with you, and be in you (14:16-17). The Spirit's work is described in terms of utterance: teach you, didasko (14:26), remind you, hypomimnesko (14:26), testify, martyro (15:26), prove wrong, elencho (16:8), guide into truth, hodego (16:13), speak, laleo (16:13, twice), declare, anangello (16:13, 14, 15). The johannine terms describe verbal actions which intend a response in others who will receive (lambano), see (theoreo), or know (ginosko) the Spirit. Such speech-terms link the Spirit with the divine Word. The Spirit's initiatives imply God's personal engagement with humanity. The Spirit comes to be with others; the teaching Spirit implies a community of learners; forgetful persons need a prompter to remind them; one testifies expecting heed to be paid; one speaks and declares in order to be heard. The articulate Spirit is the correlative of the listening, Spirit-informed community.
The final Paraclete passage closes with a threefold repetition of the verb she will declare (anangello), 16:13-15. The Spirit will declare the things that are to come (v.13), and she will declare what is Christ's (vv. 14, 15). The things of Christ are a message that must be heralded...
The intention of the Spirit of truth is the restoration of an alienated, deceived humanity... The teaching role of the Paraclete tends to be remembered as a major emphasis of the Farewell Discourses, yet only 14:26 says She will teach you all things. (Teaching is, however, implied when 16:13-15 says that the Spirit will guide you into all truth, and will speak and declare.) Franz Mussner remarks that the word used in 14:26, didaskein, "means literally 'teach, instruct,' but in John it nearly always means to reveal.” (Stevick 2011, 292-7)

I was the one who was born again and again. But now in my complete form and complete powers I have come on this Earth not only for salvation of human beings, not only for their emancipation, but for granting them the Kingdom of Heaven, the joy, the bliss that your Father wants to bestow upon you.”

“The main thing that one has to understand is that the time has come for you to get all that is promised in the scriptures, not only in the Bible but all all the scriptures of the world. The time has come today that you have to become a Christian, a Brahmin, a Pir, through your Kundalini awakening only. There is no other way. And that your Last Judgment is also now.”

“You see, the Holy Ghost is the Mother. When they say about the Holy Ghost, She is the Mother... Now, the principle of Mother is in every, every scripture — has to be there.

“The Kundalini is your own mother; your individual mother. And She has tape-recorded all your past and your aspirations. Everything! And She rises because She wants to give you your second birth. But She is your individual mother. You don't share Her with anybody else. Yours is a different, somebody else's is different because the tape-recording is different. We say She is the reflection of the Adi Shakti who is called as Holy Ghost in the Bible.”

THE MOTHER: Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi
Press Conference July 08 1999—London, UK

The Great Goddess is both wholly transcendent and fully immanent: beyond space and time, she is yet embodied within all existent beings; without form as pure, infinite consciousness (cit) ... She is the universal, cosmic energy known as Sakti, and the psychophysical, guiding force designated as the Kundalini (Serpent Power) resident within each individual. She is eternal, without origin or birth, yet she is born in this world in age after age, to support those who seek her assistance. Precisely to provide comfort and guidance to her devotees, she presents herself in the Devi Gita to reveal the truths leading both to worldly happiness and to the supreme spiritual goals: dwelling in her Jeweled Island and mergence into her own perfect being.” (Brown, 1998, 2)
