Who is Christ (24:0) Qj

"He (God) hath ordained that in every age and dispensation a pure and stainless Soul be made manifest in the kingdoms of earth and heaven (a Christ or Manifestation of God). Unto this subtle, this mysterious and ethereal Being He hath assigned a twofold nature; the physical, pertaining to the world of matter, and the spiritual, which is born of the substance of God Himself. He hath, moreover, conferred upon Him a double station. The first station, which is related to His innermost reality, representeth Him as One Whose voice is the voice of God Himself.." (gwb 66:1) ".. the second station .."pertaineth to the world of creation and to the limitations thereof. In this respect, each Manifestation of God hath a distinct individuality, a definitely prescribed mission, a predestined Revelation, and specially designated limitations. Each one of them is known by a different name, is characterized by a special attribute, fulfills a definite Mission, and is entrusted with a particular Revelation.." (kiq 176:1) (24:1)

".. some of these attributes (of God) may or may not be outwardly revealed from these luminous Temples to the eyes of men. That a certain attribute of God hath not been outwardly manifested by these Essences of Detachment doth in no wise imply that they who are the Day Springs of God's attributes and the Treasuries of His holy names did not actually possess it. Therefore, these illuminated Souls, these beauteous Countenances have, each and every one of them, been endowed with all the attributes of God, such as sovereignty, dominion, and the like, even though to outward seeming they be shorn of all earthly majesty.." (gwb 48:2).".. whatever pertaineth unto them, and whatsoever they may manifest in the future, are all ordained by God, and are a reflection of His Will and Purpose." (gwb 59) (24:2)

..Christ is all-powerful, the very "Word" of God. Through Him the whole physical Universe was created. But for Him, spiritual matters like inner sight, spiritual healing and eternal life are the important things... (24:3)

"..The knowledge of Him, Who is the Origin of all things (God), and attainment unto Him, are impossible save through the knowledge of, and attainment unto, these luminous Beings who proceed from the Sun of Truth." (kiq 141:2) (24:4)
