“The mind possesses magnifying power, which it exercises habitually, either consciously or unconsciously. This power makes the mind the fertile side of man’s nature, out of which spring “the issues of life.” We magnify the Lord by anticipation, by expecting, by declaring that only the good is true, by steadfastly declaring that every blessing is ours now.
Belief in good and evil, past and future comprises all the thought consciousness of opposites that has been built up since man began to eat, or enter into the conscious knowledge of “good and evil”, (Gen. 2:17).
Man is an idea in Divine Mind; the epitome of being. The apex of God’s creation, created in His image and likeness.
Man appears unlike God because he, through disobedience, fell into sin. Through accepting race thoughts, man has adopted wrong ideas about himself and his relation to his Source. He has believed that he is unlike God and separate from Him, and these concepts have, by the law of thought, become manifest.
Ideal man is the perfect man, the Christ, the offspring of Divine Mind. Manifest man should be as perfect as the ideal, and he will be when the individual identifies himself with the Christ. When he is identified with anything less than perfection he manifests some degree of imperfection.
Man makes his world through the activity of ideas in his consciousness–ideas of wisdom, power, intelligence. The real man is the embodiment of God, and all the God-substance and the power to make it active is inherent within him.
When we are quickened to spiritual understanding and fully realize the true character of God and our own nature as the image, or idea, of God we will begin to live as Jesus lived in order that we may bring forth the likeness.
To perceive the true character of God and His attributes and then to grasp our relationship to Him is to realize that His attributes are our attributes, His power is our power; His character is our character.
Man is not limited in life. He has existed with the Father always. At the very beginning of creation he was born into being through the Son, the Christ, the perfect, ideal man whom God made in His image and likeness.
“Jesus said . . . Before Abraham was born, I am” (John 8:58).
Man is a duality in seeming only. He is a unit when he knows himself. His ignorance of himself and his relation to God is the cause of the seeming duality. When wisdom comes to him and he makes wisdom his own, there is no longer war between the ideal man in God and the becoming man in the Lord God.
The fall of man is the result that follows man’s failure to recognize his divinity. By his error he falls into a state of consciousness where he is bound in limitation and error. He falls short of his divine possibilities.
Before there could be a man there must have been an idea of man. God, the Father, Divine Mind, had an idea of man, and this idea is his Son, the perfect man idea, the offspring of God-Mind.
This Son is the Christ, the only begotten of the Father. The Son, being the express image and likeness of the Father, is perfect, even as the Father which is in heaven is perfect.
All that we find in Divine Mind we find in its offspring, “who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation” (Col. 1:15). “In him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily” (Col. 2:9).
John the Baptist represents the illumined intellectual man who perceives with spiritual vision the unfoldment of this natural, intellectual man into the Christ man.
A misunderstanding of man’s true nature results in an untrue expression of God-given powers and ends in death.
The “new man” is born of a divine idea through the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit. This idea is that man is a spiritual being; he is a “holy thing.”
The “man of sin” is the carnal mind in each individual, and it always opposes and misrepresents the Truth; sometimes it poses as an angel of light and Truth. Everyone who overcomes this inner adversary will be saved from all deception that may be practiced by anybody or anything that claims the place of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The earth man, who lives through his senses, he gathers his information and makes his judgments from evidence gathered by the senses. He seeks his pleasure through the satisfaction of his sense appetites. He is the false man, the antichrist man.
The spiritual man is God’s Son; the personal man is man’s son.
The spiritual man is the sum total of the attributes or perfect idea of Being, identified and individualized. This man is the “only begotten Son” of God. (John 3:16)
Jehovah, or “I AM THAT I AM” (Exod. 3:14), is the name of this divine man. He was manifested as the higher self of Jesus. In the New Testament He is called the Christ. Jesus named Him the “Father in me”. (John 14: 10)” (The Revealing Word by Charles Fillmore)
