Excerpt from What Jesus Wants You to Know Today

My Life as Jesus and Christianity

I am the one you have known as Jesus the Christ. I am also you, as I live inside each and every one as the divine consciousness—Christ Consciousness—that everyone is endowed with. I, as Jesus the Christ, am but an external representation of Christ Consciousness, but Christ Consciousness is within you too. I am not the only son of the Father. You are all sons and daughters of this most magnificent intelligence I have called “Father” and many call God.

You are no different than me, in that you have the same potential to be a Christ, to be enlightened, as I was. Indeed, it is everyone’s destiny to become enlightened. This is not apparent because you are aware of only this one lifetime that you are living. But if you were familiar with the progression of lifetimes you and everyone else is living, you would see that these lives lead to one thing: enlightenment, which is to say they lead you back home to love, to your own divine nature.

Enlightenment is a state of true seeing, of seeing the truth about who you are and where you came from. This truth is not evident from your ordinary state of consciousness as a human being. You “see through a glass, darkly,” and that is the essential difference between you and the Jesus you knew me as and the nonphysical ascended, or enlightened, being that I am now.

I knew the truth and taught the truth when I was alive two thousand years ago, and I am here to offer it to you today, which I can do easily enough with the help of this and other channels. Channeling, or the gift of clairaudience, is a way that people have communicated with those in other dimensions throughout time. Channeling is not new, although it is out of favor with those of a more scientific bent and even with many who are religious, who have been taught that communicating with beings in higher realms only happened to extraordinary people in the Bible and to some saints, not to people today.

It is true that most do not have this ability, but there have always been some who have and who have shared their insights throughout history for the betterment of humanity. Edgar Cayce was one such example.

Regardless of what you think of channeling, it is the way I am able to speak to you today. If you are open and willing to listen, then please read on, for I have much to say to you that relates to my past, your world today, your lives, and your well-being.

I have shared my teachings extensively through this channel, and I will continue to do so here as well. But I also want to share some things about myself, my past, and my perspective on the world that I haven’t shared before. These are trying times, indeed, but so much good is also occurring on planet Earth, which I and others like myself are celebrating.

I’d like to begin by explaining who I was and what was and was not true about my life and teachings two thousand years ago. I will also tell you more about my current mission. Accepting this might require suspending some of your beliefs, as some of this information may be unfamiliar or in conflict with what you currently believe. Nevertheless, it is important to me to set the record straight. There is much I’d like to correct and explain so that you understand the truth about my lifetime as Jesus, my teachings, and my current work with humanity.

First of all, let me say that Jesus was but one of my many lifetimes on earth, the most illustrious one from your standpoint, but not from mine. I was a simple man then, standing up for what I believed and teaching the truth as I knew it. I was a spiritual teacher and a healer, but I was no more special than you, no less human and no more divine. I was enlightened, however, and that is what set me apart and what people recognized in me and revered.

In those times, it was uncommon to meet someone who was enlightened, although it is less so today. Many assume that I was a perfect human being or a god, but I was not. I was human, with all the emotions and egoic tendencies of every human being. However, I had learned to master my lower nature, or ego, including my emotions, for the most part, although I still experienced emotions.

I was human and I was divine, just as you are. Most people haven’t actualized their divine self, or at least to the extent that I and other enlightened or awake beings have. This human life is a journey of discovering and uncovering your divine self and learning to live as that.

What I mean by enlightened is that I didn’t have to return to another earthly lifetime after my lifetime as Jesus. I had completed my journey and lessons as a human being, as will each of you at some point. In fact, I had already completed that journey before I came into that lifetime. I came then, not for my own evolution, but to fulfill a certain destiny of which you are well aware.

At a certain point during that lifetime, I realized I had a destiny and generally understood what that destiny was, since I was closely in touch with the “Father,” or the guidance being given me from higher dimensions. And I was committed to following that guidance regardless of the trials entailed in that.

I knew I would face great difficulties in executing my mission, as humanity was in a very primitive state and, for the most part, deeply ignorant and capable of great cruelty. Despite that, I gladly took on this challenge, for I saw the opportunity to affect many with my sorely-needed message of love. Someone had to come to earth to fulfill this destiny, and I enthusiastically volunteered. I welcomed the opportunity to try to free those I could from their shackles of ignorance.

I also foresaw that, after my death, many of these teachings would be co-opted by egos, distorted, and put in service to a hierarchical religion that would be carried out in my name. Still, the teachings needed to be brought to earth for the relative few who could understand them and pass them on.

My purpose was never to establish a religion, and I understood that people would turn what I said or what they thought I said into a religion. But there was only so much I could do about that or about how people might interpret the teachings after I was gone. That was up to them, and many lessons have resulted from that.

Nevertheless, over the centuries, I’ve done my best from this dimension to shape these teachings through monks, nuns, priests, ministers, higher authorities in the church, and ordinary people who’ve been able to connect with me intuitively. I have always been present within the Christian church, behind the scenes, inspiring and leading people to the truth to the extent that I have been able to and to the extent that people have been open to me and to the truth. Despite this, many distortions in my teachings remain.

And I am present in your churches, in the buildings where you worship. My presence in churches is real, and it is felt. That is authentic, even if some of what is taught is inaccurate. Wherever I am called upon, I appear. And whenever you call upon me, I am there. I am real, and I am experienced in people’s Hearts. The truth I taught is real, and that is experienced in your Hearts as well.

Many who experience me in these sacred settings tend to trust and believe what the church says because of their very real experience of me. But trusting your experience of me and trusting the dogma of the church are two very different things. This has been very confusing for many: They are having true spiritual experiences within a structure founded on certain untruths. It’s not surprising that people were willing to accept certain untruths without questioning them in exchange for the sense of spiritual connection they truly wanted and felt.

I would like all religious and spiritual people to know that they can connect with me anywhere and anytime. No religion or even a church building is needed to experience me and the truth I represent. This truth is the truth of your own divine nature, for that is what you are experiencing when you experience me. All I ask is that you be discriminating about your religious beliefs and accept only those that take you to love. Shortly, I will enumerate the specific distortions or lies within Christianity that you can let go of.

The truth I came to teach is love: “Love your neighbor as yourself” and “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”—such simple, yet powerful, truths and guidelines that, if applied, could change the world. The truth is simple and it is self-evident, although not easy to practice.

Knowing the truth is the beginning of changing the world. Too many were and still are living according to false beliefs instead of the truth. I came to earth to try to change that, to be a voice in a vast desert of misunderstandings, and I continue to be a voice for truth to the extent that I can from this dimension. I never really left you. I have never ceased being in service to humanity and your beautiful planet.

I came to earth to change people’s hearts and minds, but people don’t like their beliefs questioned. Those who do this will always be attacked by the ignorant, the narrow-minded, and the power-hungry. Mistaken beliefs come from the ego and support the ego, and egos don’t want their monopoly on beliefs disturbed.

Such beliefs uphold the hierarchy and supposed superiority of the few at the top, and I came to earth to topple that, to promote equality, freedom, peace, and happiness for all. If this situation sounds familiar, it’s because not much has changed over the centuries. The ego is still in power and creating inequality and unhappiness for all, even for those at the top. That is the tragedy. The ego’s ways ultimately make everyone miserable. No one wins when the ego is in charge.

But how can this change if people don’t understand what the ego is and that an ego-driven life is not the only possibility? I came to show people what was possible, not only that they could be happy with little, but that they were, in fact, children of an infinitely wealthy and generous Father, and that a happy and an abundant life is within everyone’s reach, not just in a supposed heaven.

Once the truth is understood, inner and outer riches—and contentment—are possible for any and all who are willing to live according to the truth. The truth I speak of is love. Allowing love to guide you in your life is all that is required to live a blessed life, one full of love and other types of abundance: creativity, joy, fulfillment, beauty, and adoration of the one God abiding within everything, giving life to everything.

It is that—the divinity in all—that I came into life to honor and spread the word about. The lowliest and the mightiest in society are equally beloved in the eyes of God, in the eyes of that which is behind all of creation and which lives and breathes through all of creation.

One thing I would like you to understand is that every soul, not just me, descends from the Father, from the originator of all life. Everyone is a son or daughter of God. Then, each soul takes on many, many lifetimes—thousands of them—on earth or on some other planet, with the goal of finding its way back to love.

Reincarnation is one of the teachings that was removed from the Bible by the church fathers, who found this idea inconvenient and threatening. The idea of heaven and Hell was much simpler, and it helped keep people in line: “If you do what we tell you and go to church every Sunday, you will go to heaven: if you don’t, you will go to Hell.” But life is so much more complex than this—and so much more benevolent!

As you progress through your many lifetimes on earth, you eventually learn that you come from love and are made of love, but only after first losing your way by following the ego and experiencing the depths of suffering entailed in that.

When you finally discover the truth that sets you free from the prison of the ego, that is a blessed life, indeed, but that is only the beginning of the journey back home to love. Then, love has to be practiced moment to moment until you become that love. When that love has so permeated your being that all karma is balanced and no new karma is being created, you are said to be enlightened, and your soul no longer needs to return to the physical plane.

Once you have graduated from the earthly plane, you continue to exist in higher, nonphysical dimensions, each with its own experiences, lessons, service, and purpose, which the soul continually grows from.

In these higher dimensions, there is no suffering. The suffering you experience on earth is unique to that phase in the soul’s evolution. These higher dimensions are the basis for the teachings about heaven. In that sense, heaven is real, as many people who have experienced these higher dimensions as a result of near-death experiences and out of body travels can attest to.

For eons, I have existed in higher dimensions, in the fifth and sixth. I have also tasted the seventh. My life on earth as Jesus was as a savior. That is true, and I will explain what I mean by that shortly. Although returning to the earthly plane from higher dimensions, as I did, may seem like a great sacrifice, I didn’t see it that way. Those in higher dimensions exist to serve. It is our joy to do so. It is our reason for being. It is how we give glory to the Father. Throughout human history, higher dimensional beings have regularly reincarnated to serve humanity.

So, I am not special in this. Yes, I came as a savior, but that is happening throughout the universes. Throughout all of creation, saviors are sent to serve those in need. As I have so often said, benevolence is behind creation. Those of us in higher dimensions live for love and live in service to love, and our service is to point those who are lost toward love.

I came to earth to save you from your false beliefs. The only means I had for saving you was to teach you the truth, and that is what I was crucified for, for teaching love. My teachings were felt to be seditious. They upset those in power, who wanted to remain in power.

The authorities believed I was a revolutionary and thought I wanted their power, but they were wrong. I had no use for earthly power, no desire whatsoever for any of the things most people crave and mistakenly believe will make them happy. I knew better. I knew that happiness could never exist where love was not. I came to teach that, not grab for power, not even spiritual power.

I did not come to build a church or found a religion, but to correct the distortions within the religion of that day. This is also my intent today, as many of the teachings attributed to me were misunderstood and are distortions of the truth. I’ll do my best to correct these misunderstandings here.

Here's what reviewers are saying ...

  • “The most important book of my life. My therapist recommended this book to me! Yeah, my insurance-taking psychologist! I proceeded with an open mind, not sure what I was reading, then it changed my life. These words opened my mind, subconsciously opened my heart and healed my trauma by simply reading the words. Sounds nuts, but it's true. That's what happened. I've given the book to no less than seven people. Once they start reading it, they start to grow in compassion, and some have experienced angels and Jesus himself. This book reaffirmed everything I believed from a young age growing up questioning everything in Catholic School. Jesus is who I also thought/knew/felt he was/is, not who the church created him out to be.” –Johanna B.

  • “I love Jesus Christ's message of Love and Healing our world through Love. That was his message 2000 years ago and that is his message now: ‘Love is the answer to every problem.’ He gives us very down-to-earth solutions to our current problems. I love all the clarifications he made about his life, his experiences, and his messages. He also gives us excellent advice on how to live our life. There is a tremendous need for this book in the world right now. I think that everyone on the planet should read it. I hope this jewel is translated into several languages! From the bottom of my heart, thank you for this wonderful book!” –Patricia M.

  • “A truly amazing book. Wow! What a read. Having spent the last twenty years or so reading A Course in Miracles, Joel Goldsmith, Glenda Green's Love Without End, etc., I thought I'd read it all—until I read this one. There are fresh revelations on nearly every page. You read it once, you can't believe it; you read it a second time, you still can't believe it! Life changing.” –S. Price

  • “I have read all of the books Gina Lake has written on behalf of Jesus the Christ, and while I am not one who struggles for words, I have to say that each and every one of these books is truly beyond description in what they offer. If your heart, mind, and soul desire peace, understanding, and whatever else you may need to see things as they truly are, then with all my heart, intelligence, and love, I would say, read this book and every other book that Jesus has transmitted to this author, and you will find the end of searching, seeking, confusion, despair, hopelessness, etc. What opens up is understanding, compassion, love, laughter, and unbelievable gratitude for everything that we believe has ever happened, as we can then see that all, in fact, is Grace.” –Anna D.

  • “Truly amazing book! Wow! What a read. Having spent the last 20 years or so reading A Course in Miracles, Joel Goldsmith, Glenda Green's Love Without End etc, I thought I'd read it all. Until I read this one. Whereas ACIM makes us do a lot of the work, in this book Jesus speaks much more conversationally. There are fresh revelations on nearly every page. You read it once, you can't believe it, you read it a second time, you still can't believe it! Life changing.” –Stuart P.

  • “Wow, this is a love-punch. I'm going to start my second time through it today. I really enjoyed that it was only 140 pages and at the same time, in the end, I wanted more. It's hard for me to describe a book like this. The voice, the message, and the writing are so clear and crisp. That's why I named it a love-punch. Highly recommended!” –Alchemista

  • “The Master’s words. This book is stimulating... a treasure long desired on my journey.” –Arthur

  • “Skeptic no more! As one who was wary at first that someone could channel Jesus, I was ignited instantly to the Truths spoken here. Gina Lake’s books and courses are one-stop shopping for me! This book offers an updated streamlined DIY instruction toward reaching Christed Consciousness. The joy, peace, and most importantly sane and rational way to experience life taught here and by Jesus through Gina Lake has changed my life 180 degrees. I went from living a contracted, nervous, hard on myself, neurotic at times, judgmental state of being to living more and more in presence, and as a result a much more productive, peaceful, loving, altruistic, and realistic life.” –Kat

  • “Gina really communicates the love, joy, wisdom and grace of Christ conscious energy. Her words are a thrill to experience. You can feel Christ’s loving guidance in every subject he tackles. His joy of life and easy recommendations for reconnecting with your divine essence bring peace and delight to the spirit. What a treasure to have them collaborate in getting these teachings to humanity.” –Don B

  • “This book will awaken you to the truth. I just finished it and felt enlightened with every word from the start! Gina Lake is truly a Mystic Lady, and Jesus comes across as the Jesus Christ I knew as a child before all of my conditioning began. I have read all of her Jesus channeled books, and in this one, so many false beliefs about Christianity have been put straight by Jesus’ own words. What this small book teaches erases a lifetime of misconceptions about life, humanity, God, and our world as well as the universe itself.” –G. Rohrer

  • “After studying and seeking truth for over fifty years, I have found a summation of everything I have learned, and more, in one source. Easy to read but filled with the most valuable information. I love this book. There is no doubt that this is Jesus speaking through Gina.” –Brian O’Neil

  • “This is an exceptionally powerful and timely book. In it, Jesus teaches today as I would imagine he taught those around him while walking the earth—with clarity, compassion, no-nonsense, and some startling realizations that will stay and grow within you. Masterfully written, I’m looking deeply now at beliefs I’ve held for a lifetime, questioning their validity. If you’re willing to be stirred into Truth by Jesus’ most relevant teachings for mankind and even by some fascinating insights into his life that are never taught in Christianity, please don’t pass this significant book by. Its messages are of greater magnitude than I would ever have imagined—and one I will turn to again and again.” –Susan

  • “I am still reading this book, but so far I am totally smitten with it. The messages that Jesus conveys here are as much needed now as then, some 2000 years ago. I’ve always thought of these messages as true and thus this book made total sense to me. I hope more people will read it and live their lives in love and come to see the truth. Highly recommended!” –Rainbow Fairy

  • “This book has given me many insights into my own behavior—and others. I also found the discussions relating to media and politics thought provoking. This was a great find.” –W. Nurse

  • “Having been a materialist sceptic for a good part of my life, a profound shift is occurring thanks to Gina Lake's extraordinary ability to channel directly the words of Jesus directly into our hearts. How do I know that these are the words of Jesus and not some delusion? It's hard to put into words but the verisimilitude of these teachings reaches the very core of your heart where you have no doubt of their origin.” –John Q.

  • Just WOW! I'm blown away by the timelines of this message relating to our current events and politics. How many will set their ego aside to hear it?” –A. Martin

  • “I am 72 years old. My heart has been begging for exactly this book. I seldom review books. When I do, there has to be something on the order of a lightning strike. From the very first words, I felt like Jesus was talking directly to me. It seems like I have been praying for this book forever.” –Robert H.

  • “Wisdom and deep comfort. The serenity one feels when reading this book is palpable. It is a treasure to be read and reread, shared and shared again.” –Miama R.

  • I think I surprised even myself in falling in love with Gina Lake's 21st century Jesus. There's the vibration, but it's not just the vibration. The guidance is specific and concrete, and makes sense to the mind, almost common sense, quite accessible in ordinary human experience. The truths spoken light up my whole being. I can say, "That's it. Yes, that's exactly how I experience it.” –Ernest S.

  • “I have read a number of Gina Lake's books and have found them to be profound. This one is no exception and is particularly relevant today. Jesus speaks to us, through Gina Lake, to clarify and transmit what he taught 2000 years ago, uncorrupted by the passage of time and misconceptions handed down to us that keep us from realizing that we are all capable of achieving the awakened state that He and other masters have attained. This is a critical teaching for our time, as we are on the brink of destroying our world unless we awaken to the Truth that we are all one. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Thank you, Gina, for your inspiration.” –Ariana

  • I am reading this book for the second time. Written so simply but so powerful. I feel like I am listening to Jesus speak directly to me. It all resonates with me. All of Gina's books have resonated with me, and I am grateful she has taken the time to share this information.” –Mary D.

  • “Powerful message for our time. I usually hi-light many passages in Gina's books, and this one is no exception. It is rich with valuable guidance, and in terms of information, it answers many questions I had and even some I didn't know I had. This made it hard to put down, making it a quick, though profound read.” –Doug L.

  • “Highly recommended. I have been a student of the spiritual for many years and have read many channeled books by many authors. I can tell which ones are authentic. Your heart tells you. Authentic messages all resonate the same. This is the real deal. Enjoy.” –Jim J.

  • Wow, what an amazing book. Was excited to read it, and it did not disappoint. I just find myself going back to it time and time again. I recommend everyone should read it at least once.” –Andy T.

  • Many, many wise points are made in this significant book. I think that everyone who is ready should read it. Thank you, Gina Lake for allowing this to come through you and for helping us see what is needed for a better world.” –Bonnie C.

  • “I knew that this book was a treasure the moment I began reading Jesus' words of wisdom and guidance. Jesus gave us this wonderful book through Gina Lake, a brilliant and dedicated channel and author. It is a gift, indeed, a gift for all humanity! Many thanks to Gina and Jesus! Jesus explains his teachings page by page and updates and corrects any false information or beliefs that were written or recorded long ago. Yes, you will see that Jesus is a Master Teacher whose teachings are based on LOVE. His words touched my Heart as I read, and you will feel a connection too as you read this inspired book. This book is TRUTH... It will change your life forever! I highly recommend this book to everyone.” –Joan G.
