It’s not a metaphor or a touchy feely platitude. It is literally true. Jesus himself quoted that very scripture when he was on the verge of being stoned for blasphemy by the Jews:
Jesus said, “I and the Father are one.” The Jews picked up stones again to stone Him. Jesus answered them, “I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?” The Jews answered Him, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God.” Jesus answered them, “Has it not been written in your Law, ‘I SAID, YOU ARE GODS’? “If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), do you say of Him, whomthe Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? (John 10:30-36 NASB)
Notice that Jesus clearly states that it applies to not just to himself, but to those “to whom the word of God came.” It’s not an exclusive group, it applies to all of us. We are all children of God and therefore all of us are gods as well. Jesus said:
“Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.” (Matthew 23:9 NASB)
Jesus taught that it applies to all of us, and that we should take it very literally. Jesus did not claim to be the only child of God. He clearly taught that it applies to all of us:
“I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.” (John 20:17 NASB)
The apostle John also confirms that this when he says:
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (1 John 3:1 NASB)
It is no more blasphemous for you to say it, than it was for Jesus, for we all have the same father. We are all literally God’s children and therefore gods as well.
Near Death Experiences
But it’s not just Jesus that describes this relationship between us and God. Near death experiences describe it in great detail. Thousands of people who have died and come back to life from all races, sexes, cultures and religions describe a very intimate and connected relationship between us and God. In fact calling us gods is not blasphemous, because it is not what it says about us, but the very nature of God. People who have had near death experiences describe God as absolutely everything, and that there is nothing that is NOT God- including us. Consistently and repeatedly throughout the centuries, near death experiences describe the whole of creation- everything that existences in the visible world and beyond –as in fact one singular entity.
But it’s not just ancient religious texts or near death experiences that teach these concepts. There is also considerable evidence in science as well, it’s just that they use different terms to describe the same things. The single most famous scientific equation in the world is Einstein’s E=mc2, where Einstein proved that all matter (m) is just another form of energy (E). So absolutely everything in the universe is created from one substance- energy.
Energy itself has unique characteristics that are summed up in one of the fundamental principles of physics: the law of conservation of energy/matter. According to that universally accepted law of physics energy can neither be created nor destroyed; it can only be transformed from one state to another. In other words energy has no beginning- it has always existed, and it cannot be destroyed- it will always exist. In other words energy is eternal.
So the entire universe is created from one substance, and that one substance is eternal. What the scientist call energy, the religious call God.
Discover Your Connection
All of these sources tell us that we have the ability to profoundly affect the world around us when we know the secret. Jesus said “According to your beliefs be it done unto you.” Near Death Experiences tell us that what we focus our minds on will be drawn to us. The spiritual have called this the Law of Attraction for thousands of years. Another source describes it as “As within (the mind), so without (the world around you).” Even one of the fundamental principles of quantum physics says that “the observer affects the outcome”. You are already doing this unconsciously, when you learn to do it consciously and intentionally the transformation in your life can be profound. Experience it for yourself!
