What does it mean to be a child of God?

To be a child of God means to be an adoptive member of the Divine Family.

When we become children of the living God by taking steps to rediscover our true heritage and giving the Almighty Father our fiat with sincerity of heart, in essence and in fact, we become adoptive members of the Divine Family. The Family – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and, yes, even the Mother* – take us in. They take us into Their Hearts and envelop us in Their bosom, showering us with all we need to become gods by grace (2 P 1:4; Ps 82:6).  (more…)

Each person who reads the book can decide for him or herself whether or not he or she believe the words contained therein.

Hence that night, without prior warning, I found myself taken up into Your throne room: there I suddenly was, kneeling just a few feet away from You on both knees, as You sat regally on Your raised throne cloaked fully in Your Divine Light. The whole area which surrounded Your throne was similarly covered in several overlapping clouds of Your Light. (more…)

The bridge to the Holy Trinity

Mankind does not want God. Yet it wants the human Mother of God the Son, Jesus Christ, even less despite the fact She is the exemplar of the deification of created man – what mankind was supposed to be – and the bridge to the Holy Trinity.
