AN “INTERVIEW” WITH JESUS ON THE STATE OF THE WORLD TODAY
“MY CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD” through Jesus
Key words (Tags): Jesus, Jesus Christ, teachings, “inspiration”, faith, new book, ‘The Real, The True Jesus’
The ‘reporter’ “did this interview with Jesus” yesterday and he doesn’t know whether he’s really crazy sharing this personal “interview” publically on the net (perhaps I’ll be locked away by funny little men in white coats), but am just doing it… “impulsively” (as always).

“Be bold and unseen forces come to one’s aid.”
(Love that quote and perhaps the story of my ‘little life)
Craig is currently writing a new manuscript titled ‘The Real, The True Jesus: The One I Know and Love’

“MY CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD” through Jesus
Jesus, why is the world such a mess and how can the world be made a better place?
It always has been, but these are particularly uncertain days in history. Still the current state of the world saddens me greatly.. especially the great divisions between nations. My message (very simple) today is still as relevant as ever. Justice, respect for all people, hope, love and peace. And if more people could just follow my simple teachings of 2000 years ago the world would be transformed (by a new consciousness – collective). These teachings are practical solutions to the problems of the world … and they are as valid in my time on earth… today and always.
What can be done to bring unity between people, particularly between east and west, as there are so many religions (apparently conflicting), cultures and religious traditions?
A spirit of love is the well-spring of hope and brings people together… and this brings peace. Put God, the Father first, love your neighbour as yourself… and everything else, GOOD flows from that.
Is there one God and are YOU God, Jesus? There are many manifestations of God and I am but one manifestation. I have always had a very special relationship with my Father; but so can YOU, if you so choose.
I call myself “Son of Man”, in fact, more than “Son of God”, but everyone is a “child of God, the Father”. I just have and always will have a very special, intimate relationship with God, my Father.
There will be other messengers bringing God’s message after me, as our Father works through special people on earth (those who have a special sense of ‘mission and destiny’ and are available and totally committed to me). Then they are my hands and voice, a channel for my spirit to flow through.
What about Allah?
As I said, there is only ONE Infinite Spirit, One God. It’s just another term for the Creator of the Universe, which stems from different cultures, another tradition.
So are you saying all rivers lead to the ocean?
No, not all oceans are the same. Because each person’s path is different and you’ll have different experiences of God along the journey, depending on what you believe. So YOU choose what the concept of God (or “my Father”) means to you. And everyone’s experience of Heaven, the Kingdom of God will then be different… because of their unique journeys of life.
So are you the only way to God?
As in your words in John…
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
John 14: 6 (NIV)
I am quite horrified by the way the church has applied much of what I taught over the past 2000 years, taken some statements out of context for their own ends (and even omitted many of my words). Power for its own sake is corrupting (and dangerous). I used (and use) parables to get my message across very simply, but so much of what I said is taken so literally.
I said no-one comes to the Father, except through ME. Other religions don’t offer a personal relationship with God, the Ultimate Source, and don’t utilise the concept of God as “a Father figure”. So only those who follow me will have a “Christ-consciousness” (and this is different to an “Allah consciousness” of the same ONE God).
I hope, I trust that my spirit comes alive through my words… giving hope eternally…and the only way I could do that was to die as I did!
“When (or perhaps rather if) you arrive in heaven, let hope, faith and love be the wings that carried you there.”
God bless you all.”

“If I can throw a single ray of light across the darkened pathway of another;
if I can aid some soul to clearer sight of life and duty, and thus bless my brother;
if I can wipe from any human cheek a tear,
I shall not have lived my life in vain while here.
If I can guide some erring one to truth, inspire within his heart a sense of duty;
if I can plant within my soul of rosy youth a sense of right, a love of truth and beauty;
if I can teach one man that God and heaven are near,
I shall not then have lived in vain while here.
If from my mind I banish doubt and fear, and keep my life attuned to love and kindness;
if I can scatter light and hope and cheer, and help remove the curse of mental blindness;
if I can make more joy, more hope, less pain,
I shall not have lived and loved in vain.
If by life’s roadside I can plant a tree, beneath whose shade some wearied head may rest,
though I may never share its beauty, I shall yet be truly blest –
though no one knows my name, nor drops a flower upon my grave,
I shall not have lived in vain while here.”
– St Francis of Assisi
Today, don’t just try to make a living… try to make a difference
“If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,
he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
or Beethoven composed music,
or Shakespeare wrote poetry.
He should sweep streets so well,
that all the hosts of heaven will pause to say,
here lived a great street sweeper
who did his job well.
– Martin Luther King, Jr
About the submitter:
In his various writings, little by little, one mind, one heart, one soul at a time, Craig strives in some small way to break down and economic, social, cultural and religious barriers. Craig believes that whilst we should celebrate our differences, what we share in the form of our common humanity is way more important than what divides us.
He is currently “writing” ‘Jesus Meets Muhammad’.
“Whilst we can (and should) celebrate our differences (unique), let not our varying beliefs divide us, but let the Spirit of our shared humanity be what defines and unites us all as common citizens of our planet.””
“Instead of the limits of borders (of countries and of our minds) let us and our leaders expand our sense of possibility… and together let’s look at building bridges to distant horizons, far and great. Lord, help us all lift our eyes a little higher.”
