Mother Mary (Maryam) is one of my Guides and Messengers.
My son is the child of the Divine just as you are.
His father was my beloved husband, Joseph, a wise and humble carpenter of great integrity.
I was a Prophetess and my son, Joshua, was born with my gift as a Jewish prophet. He was also a rabbi with a Vision guided by the Ruach HaKodesh (The Holy Spirit). He wanted his faith, his culture and the society he lived in to be equitable and progressive, but he never wanted to change who he was. He identified as a Jew, culturally and religiously, from birth to death.
He was a Jewish Mystic who believed in raising our state of consciousness, more than religious rules and dogma. He believed in the “Kingdom within” as the key to our salvation.
He came to deliver the Message that the secret to Salvation was internal (inside ourselves), not external. He came to show you your potential and teach you how to save yourselves.
He spoke to multitudes, but designed his teachings to speak to people individually at different levels of consciousness.
He wanted people to have faith in their power as Co-Creators.
He was not a nationalist, he was an inclusionist.
Joseph, Joshua and I were refugees and immigrants.
Fearing the wrath of King Herod on the return to our homeland in Judea, my husband and I fled with our infant son to Egypt. We survived persecution by fleeing to another land. We had to leave our family, our possessions and our culture behind. My husband, Joseph, had to leave his work as a carpenter and find work in a foreign land.
My son embraced diversity. His city of birth was in the Middle Eastern region of the Asian continent. We had skin of bronze and are of Middle-Eastern descent.
My son’s defining message in the four Gospels was: helping the poor; healing the sick; clothe the naked; feed the hungry; uplift the downtrodden; care for the children; distribute wealth; be mindful of the immigrant and stranger in your land.
Due to his upbringing, he respected women as equals and valued their independent personage as human beings.
He was a radical progressive, a dreamer, a revolutionary and a rebel who fought for the poor, the bullied, the shunned and the displaced people of his time.
He would be labeled a “socialist,” a “left-wing extremist” and a “bleeding heart liberal” today.
He was a Liberal and Social Justice Advocate by all your definitions of those words.
His values are eternal and his message remains the same:
“Do not honor me with your lips, when your hearts are far from me.”
