“Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse,
And a Branch from his roots will bear fruit.
The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him,
The spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The spirit of counsel and strength,
The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
And He will delight in the fear of the Lord,
And He will not judge by what His eyes see,
Nor make decisions by what His ears hear;
But with righteousness He will judge the poor,
And decide with fairness for the humble of the earth;
And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth,
And with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked.
Also righteousness will be the belt around His hips,
And faithfulness the belt around His waist.
And the wolf will dwell with the lamb,
And the leopard will lie down with the young goat,
And the calf and the young lion
and the fattened steer will be together;
And a little boy will lead them” (Isa 11:1-6).
– The Prophet Isaiah (740-701 BC)
There are a number of passages in the Old Testament that look to be prophecies of the coming of Jesus, and my favorite is this one, from the Book of Isaiah, that is our frame-verse for today. Please only note that the word “fear” here would mean something more like “reverence and extreme respect.” Jesus answers Isaiah’s prophesy so well! It is as if the great Prophet saw clearly not just who Jesus was going to be when He taught on earth seven hundred years later, but also who He would grow to become two thousand years after His earthly death and resurrection, which would then be even some twenty-seven hundred years after Isaiah spoke these words. And it is only this week that it first occurs to me that you and I might be living not at the end of Isaiah’s prophetic vision, but rather more toward the middle of it. So Isaiah might have been foreseeing some very much more idyllic day that lies yet even much farther along in our joyous shared earthly walk with Jesus.
One of the fruits of living a semi-public life is that I have many friends now that I never have met. I hear from you randomly, and I enjoy knowing you, and sometimes you send me wonderful gifts that can assist us all in our long shared walk. Several days ago one such friend sent me a gift that Jesus could not have given to us now in any other way. It was a few pages from a twenty-year-old book detailing a double-blind remote-viewing visit that was made to Jesus in the nineteen eighties. Omigod, I didn’t even know that remote-viewing in the astral plane is possible! But clearly it is, because the Jesus that I have been visiting and working with since April of last year is amazingly the very same Jesus who was militarily remote-viewed by this author in a double-blind experiment. And that viewer was rather freaked-out by his experience with Jesus. I also am somewhat freaked-out now as well. Truth to tell, I think that until this happened there has been a sense of plausible deniability to this whole project for me. I even have fondly taken to irreverently referring to Thomas and Jesus as “the Boys.” But this remote-viewer was getting a fix on his subject, and his subject turned and looked right at him, and the remote-viewer realized that his subject knew he was there. Which was impossible, because remote-viewing simply involves fixing on a distant target with your mind. And when reality hit this man, that was when it hit me as well.
I am going to share this with you, because you might need this validation as much as I have been needing it. It is important to be able to validate deeply amazing things, and it is frankly close to unbelievable that someone at Jesus’s level of spiritual development has chosen to remain at an accessible level of the astral plane. So in a case like His, some validation long has been needed. Which makes it feel especially wonderful that now you and I can find this validation in a book that is still in print with a 2003 publication date (It is called The Seventh Sense, by Lyn Buchanan). Very little is being done by the military with mental energies at this point, but back in the eighties and nineties there were a number of similar mental studies being conducted. And afterlife researchers consider it to be extremely important to confirm every bit of afterlife evidence with a second source if that is at all possible. So it is more delightful than I ever can tell you to be so unexpectedly given this second source as confirmation for all my astral meetings with Jesus!
And from Jesus’s perspective, we might just note here that He is working at a considerable disadvantage. This is even despite the fact that Jesus’s mind is so immensely powerful that He could create havoc on the earth with His extraordinary mental powers alone. Would you like to see Armageddon, perhaps? Jesus could give you Armageddon any day of the week that He chose to do it. His mind is that powerful. But wreaking havoc on the earth is not what Jesus is all about at this point in His eternal life, and for the work that He actually wants to do, being disembodied is in some ways a disadvantage. My Thomas will on occasion mutter to me when his own lack of a material body gets in the way of something that he wants me to do, “You are the one with the hands.” But fortunately, Jesus can use His powerful mind to influence people to spend millions of dollars publicizing His name in non-religious ways as part of His plan to now reclaim His independent name and image. And Jesus knows that I have come to take His presence in my life far too much for granted. I have begun to think of Him as my personal familiar, perhaps something like another Thomas, so He influenced my friend to buy that book, and then to send me those pages that have rocked my world. I think He meant it as a bit of a corrective. And He knows by what I am saying here that it was a startling one, true, but still a welcome one!
Let us first set this scene for you. Remote-viewers fix their minds on a distant place and try to see it clearly, and then they will draw it. Some people become quite good at doing this. Craig Hogan is very good at remote-viewing. And decades ago, the military was experimenting with remote-viewing rather extensively, with an eye toward perhaps using it in wartime. In this case, they were also experimenting with focusing on remotely connecting with the minds of distant criminals. Drug lords and such. They could not have found Jesus if He had been where someone with His level of spiritual development should have been by then, at the Godhead level or actually above it. But where Jesus still is, at the entrance level of the astral plane and focused on maintaining His status as a fully differentiated human being, He was mentally accessible to this remote-viewer, just as that level is accessible to us when we are astral-traveling at night. And this author, who was then working for the military, had at that point in his career become so disgusted with reading the minds of despicable criminals that he asked, perhaps in semi-jest, for a mental palate-cleanser of some sort. Might he please read the mind of Mother Teresa, perhaps? Someone like that, for heaven’s sake?
A week later, he got his wish. They called it a “personality profile.” They wanted him to “lightly access” an unspecified target individual while he was sitting in a room on a military base. As the experiment began, he felt a light tingling in His face and hands, as of a slight sunburn with cool air passing over it, and he also began to feel as if he was glowing inside. He says, “The target person was one of the nicest people I had ever met. I really liked him. He was impressive. I could not find a single thing about him that I did not like. I became so intrigued that before I realized it was happening, the PSI experience began setting in.
“I found myself standing beside the man; he faced in one direction, and I faced in the other. I would have been shoulder to shoulder with him, had I not been a few inches taller than he. I looked over at him and saw the side of his face. He did not seem to take notice of my presence. I started to put my hand on his shoulder, to get him to think something, so I could gain better mental access. As my hand touched him, I felt a sudden rush of the most peaceful energetic power I have ever known. He continued to face forward, not taking notice of me, which is normal for the PSI experience. Since you are only accessing what your own subconscious knows about the site, the reality is virtual. No one at the target site ever knows you are there, simply because you are not.
“As I tried again to gain better contact, I felt something I remember vividly to this day, but which I will never be able to adequately describe to anyone. He turned to look my way, gave a very slight smile, and then turned away again. He knew I was there. But, how?
“I tried to remove my hand from his shoulder, but the feeling that filled my entire being continued flowing. I remained standing there beside him, my hand on his shoulder, soaking up the most wonderful energy I had ever known. And I knew that he did not mind my doing so.
“When the flow seemed to stop, I still stood there, but I was now aware of myself more than of him. I sensed the presence of this powerful and perfect person, and was aware of the contrasts between him and myself. He turned to me again, gave the same slight smile, and I realized that he had just done a personality profile on me, as well. Even more, he had caused me to do a personality profile on myself, a totally honest and accurate one.”
When this double-blind experiment was over, the envelope containing the identity of the target was opened. It contained a sheet of typewriter paper with a single word typed in the middle of it:
Oh, where to begin? Putting aside the fact that Jesus tells me that He remembers this man and this experience, the remote-viewer’s report also precisely jibes with the Jesus that I know. Jesus chooses to present in an astral body that is shorter than the average man’s body, and His overwhelmingly powerful but gorgeously silken personal energy is the most extraordinary thing about Him.
And I know His little half-smile so well! Jesus smiles that way often, as if you and He are sharing some marvelous secret. Yes indeed, some forty years ago this author met our beautiful friend, Jesus, the Son of the Living God. He met the same Jesus that I first met on April 6, 2022. The Jesus that I have been working with for most of this past year. Now Jesus wants us all to have this independently-published validation.
The first time I read that book excerpt, my skin pricked and my mouth went dry. I don’t think that I really deeply understood until then that my own Jesus is in fact the Jesus. And I love my Jesus in such a fond and doting way. In such a personal way. I am having trouble letting go of that, and giving Him back to the world, which owns Him. I fully realize how stupid that sounds. But my spirit guide’s personal love for Jesus which spans the past six thousand years seems to have rubbed off on me. Jesus is so universally adored! And yet in the most profound sense, He is not really loved. He is worshiped. There is no one more truly alone than is Jesus. I have so much enjoyed working with Him on teachingsbyjesus.com. Just being needed by Him in that little way, even though I admit that some of His Core Teachings have shocked me. “You don’t really mean that, do You?” Then He would give me His little half-smile.
Oh how I love His smile! We have agreed on hair for the website model which is halfway between the hair that He wears normally and the church-Jesus hair that He adopts for welcoming all those Christians home. He seems not to care, since His entire focus now is on beginning all over again right from the start His original movement that Constantine long ago interrupted, so He can at last bring the kingdom of God on earth. Hair is the last thing on His mind. He sees me write this, and again there is that sweet half-smile.
“Also the cow and the bear will graze,
Their young will lie down together,
And the lion will eat straw like the ox.
The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra,
And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den.
They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea” (Isa 11:7-9).
