Bethlehem, 216:he said. And he also had a realization of what Christ's mission was - to found a kingdom. "RememberBethlehem, 217:and to the time when He was a "babe in [217] Christ." The parallels between the two episodes areBethlehem, 217:has played its part, we have again the "babe in Christ," ignorant of the laws of the spiritualBethlehem, 217:the personality life. But the Baptism to which Christ was subjected through the power of His OwnBethlehem, 217:which we are also subjected through the life of Christ within us, was the Baptism of fire and ofBethlehem, 217:a physical significance, and we are sure that Christ knew happiness, even though He was a "man ofBethlehem, 217:its consummation at the Transfiguration. Though Christ was "acquainted with sorrow," He knew joy inBethlehem, 217:Lord is our strength," and it is the soul, the Christ in every human being, which is strength andBethlehem, 218:extraordinary and much debated episode between Christ and His mother, summed up in the words:Bethlehem, 218:thy mother." What did these words mean? Below Christ stood the two people who meant the most toBethlehem, 218:gives birth to him in Bethlehem. In these words Christ, utilizing the symbolism of these twoBethlehem, 218:Bethlehem, the one who shelters and guards the Christ life. To His mother, He says: Recognize thatBethlehem, 218:in the developed personality there is latent the Christ child. Matter, or the virgin Mary, isBethlehem, 218:through her son. Therefore the words of Christ have a definite reference to the third initiation,Bethlehem, 218:the material form which has given Him birth. Christ stands midway between the two - the mother andBethlehem, 219:is [219] found the problem of every human being. Christ draws the two together - the matter aspectBethlehem, 219:us into one of the most intimate moments of Christ's life - a moment that has a definite relationBethlehem, 219:for divinity, and also for perfected humanity. Christ, the perfect Man, hung upon the Cross forBethlehem, 219:"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Christ had passed through all the climaxing episodesBethlehem, 219:God had been near, and the transfigured Christ had seemed in His initiation to link God and man. HeBethlehem, 220:It was through this experience that Christ blazed the trail to the very heart of God Himself. OnlyBethlehem, 220:and eternal. It was in this experience that Christ fitted Himself for the Resurrection initiation,Bethlehem, 220:wonders for a brief moment, as one listens to Christ thus veiling His agony, whether He was notBethlehem, 221:upon which he has learnt to rely. Yet because Christ entered thus into the place of outer darkness,Bethlehem, 221:of suffering and of death into the kingdom. Christ hung pendent between heaven and earth, andBethlehem, 221:Four Words of Power had now been uttered by the Christ. He had spoken the Word for the plane ofBethlehem, 222:that stupendous Word which indicated that Christ had reached the stage of the final sacrifice, andBethlehem, 222:home. This thirst for the souls of men forced Christ to open the door into the kingdom, and to holdBethlehem, 223:I... turned from that world-appealing sight, Christ crucified for us, to look upon life's mostBethlehem, 223:Dora Greenwell, p. 14 f. Then there burst upon Christ's consciousness the wonder of accomplishment.Bethlehem, 224:forth from the darkness which shrouded the dying Christ. The moment of His death was prefaced byBethlehem, 224:then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him, that weBethlehem, 224:The kingdom is in existence. Through the work of Christ and His living Presence in all of us thereBethlehem, 224:4, 5, 6.) Furthermore, in words later used by Christ, the psalmist says, "Into thine hand I commitBethlehem, 224:here is clear. It is the spirit of life in Christ and in us which makes us sons of God, and it isBethlehem, 225:in a most significant manner to this act of Christ, which linked Him up not only with ourselves andBethlehem, 225:prior to His advent, but with the Cosmic Christ, so unmistakably speaking here: "Brahma, theBethlehem, 225:let us consider what really was the purpose of Christ's sacrifice. Why did He die? We are told whyBethlehem, 225:sacrifice of divinity upon the cross of matter. Christ stood as a symbol and also as an example. HeBethlehem, 225:power which the believers of the world demand. Christ shared with us, as a human being, the path ofBethlehem, 226:us the kingdom constitutes the vision, but for Christ it was a reality. The service of the kingdomBethlehem, 226:salvation through the blood sacrifice of Christ. This latter is the outer and more obvious teachingBethlehem, 226:today we face the problem of the relation of Christ to the modern world, and dare to see the truth,Bethlehem, 226:any theological bias. Our personal experience of Christ will not suffer in this process. No modernBethlehem, 226:process. No modern view and no theology can take Christ away from the soul which has once knownBethlehem, 226:at fault. It is quite possible that Christ is far more inclusive than we have been led to believe,Bethlehem, 227:spread a doctrine of hate. We have taught that Christ died to save the world and have endeavored toBethlehem, 227:millions live and die without ever hearing of Christ. We live in a world of chaos, endeavoring toBethlehem, 227:distant heaven which we may some day attain. But Christ founded a kingdom on earth, wherein allBethlehem, 227:believe in the divinity of all men and also in Christ's outstanding service to the race. TheBethlehem, 229:and Ascension KEY THOUGHT "Apart from Christ we know neither what our life nor our death is; we doBethlehem, 231:of the Resurrection episode, or crisis, in Christ's life is left untold by the writers of the NewBethlehem, 231:After the Crucifixion we are told little of Christ's own life, or what occupied Him between theBethlehem, 231:and its true meaning be revealed to us. How Christ rose, what were the processes undergone, inBethlehem, 231:the intensification of His expressed divinity, Christ had so stimulated their inner vision thatBethlehem, 232:their world had come to an end upon the Cross. Christ had apparently failed them, and instead ofBethlehem, 232:to dedicate themselves, as they tramped with Christ from place to place in the Holy Land, had endedBethlehem, 232:glimmer of hope that he might prove to be the Christ. When he was placed in the tomb, ChristianityBethlehem, 232:are completely certain that Jesus is indeed the Christ. What has happened to cause thisBethlehem, 233:and Beyond, by Anthony C. Deane, p. 72. [233] "Christ is risen," is their cry, and because He hasBethlehem, 233:light and life, and shall realize that, as the Christ life expresses itself in and through humanBethlehem, 233:the expression of love) can the real message of Christ be understood and men pass on towards aBethlehem, 234:they loved one another, because [234] they loved Christ and the Christ within each other. Dr.Bethlehem, 234:another, because [234] they loved Christ and the Christ within each other. Dr. Grensted points thisBethlehem, 234:their approach, in those enthusiastic days, to Christ and to life in the world: "They spoke inBethlehem, 234:just in so far as love had passed out from Christ to the fellowship of the Christian community." -Bethlehem, 234:- Psychology and God, by L. W. Grensted, p. 237. Christ had risen, and by His Resurrection provedBethlehem, 235:everywhere express their belief in the risen Christ and in the life beyond the grave. They haveBethlehem, 235:die, or have died, without ever having heard of Christ. Therefore belief in Him as an historicalBethlehem, 235:belief that God is love. Yet the truth is that Christ died and rose again because He was divinityBethlehem, 235:life present in Him and in us all. Because Christ was human, He rose again. Because He was alsoBethlehem, 236:just as the wound was shown which was made to Christ by the thrust of the spear. The feast of hisBethlehem, 236:words might have been appropriately addressed to Christ, and they serve to indicate the antiquityBethlehem, 237:the Birth to the Resurrection. The uniqueness of Christ's work lay in the fact that He was theBethlehem, 237:that the rays of the sun touched the face, the Christ, the perfected Initiate or Master, re-enteredBethlehem, 238:own likeness. That was the Resurrection of the Christ, and thereafter the body of flesh itself wasBethlehem, 238:death and resurrection of His beloved Son, Jesus Christ. This whole problem of death andBethlehem, 238:five points, the five crises in the life of Christ and the five points in the Masonic legend. AllBethlehem, 238:today is to emphasize the living, risen Christ. We have argued too long over the death of Christ,Bethlehem, 238:We have argued too long over the death of Christ, seeking to impose a narrow sectarian Christ uponBethlehem, 238:of Christ, seeking to impose a narrow sectarian Christ upon the world. We have fed the fires ofBethlehem, 239:upon some sectarian presentation of the dead Christ, and of the earlier aspects of His story. LetBethlehem, 239:Let us now unite on the basis of the risen Christ - Christ alive today, Christ the source ofBethlehem, 239:us now unite on the basis of the risen Christ - Christ alive today, Christ the source ofBethlehem, 239:basis of the risen Christ - Christ alive today, Christ the source of inspiration and the founder ofBethlehem, 239:and the founder of the kingdom of God; Christ, the cosmic Christ, eternally on the Cross, yetBethlehem, 239:of the kingdom of God; Christ, the cosmic Christ, eternally on the Cross, yet eternally alive;Bethlehem, 239:eternally on the Cross, yet eternally alive; Christ, the historical Savior, the founder ofBethlehem, 239:of Christianity, watching over His Church; Christ, the mystic, mythic Christ, portraying upon theBethlehem, 239:over His Church; Christ, the mystic, mythic Christ, portraying upon the canvas of the Gospels theBethlehem, 239:so that all who live may know and follow; and Christ, alive today in every human heart, theBethlehem, 239:constantly exhibits. Because of the presence of Christ in man, the conviction of divinity and ofBethlehem, 240:'Here am I, send me,' says Isaiah; and when Christ addressed to his earliest followers the wordsBethlehem, 241:If this is so, the establishing of the verity of Christ's Resurrection and the truth of immortalityBethlehem, 242:this, the success of the work and message of Christ must rise or fall.
