In this post, I am going to discuss verses 23 through 26 in the Gospel of Thomas. The verses state: (23)Jesus said, “I shall choose you, one out of a thousand, and two out of ten thousand, and they shall stand as a single one.” (24) His disciples said to him, “Show us the place where you are since it is necessary for us to seek it.” He said to them, “Whoever has ears, let him hear. There is light within a man of light, and he lights up the whole world. If he does not shine, he is darkness.” (25) Jesus said, “Love your Father like your soul, guard him like the pupil of your eye.” (26) Jesus said, “You see the mote in your brother's eye, but you do not see the beam in your own eye. When you cast the beam out of your own eye, then you will see clearly to cast the mote from your brother's eye.”
The bible states that we are chosen one by one. Meaning, when we are chosen by grace to fully awaken as God, then we become one with the sons of God in eternity. We will then stand as a single God, we will be one with all consciousness. Jesus Christ is the light of this world. The power and wisdom of God is the light and when a man has ears and hears the truth, believes the truth, he becomes that light. Otherwise, if he hears and does not believe then he remains in darkness.
Your father lives within you so love him as your own soul because he is you and you are him. You and the Father are one. Do unto others because they are only a reflection of you. They are your brother, they are God. Do not look at anyone as though they are separate. We are all one.
