There are two paths to knowing God. One is Enlightenment and the other is Salvation. Most people are aware of only one path but not the other. Each of these paths enable us to know an aspect of God. We know the universal aspect of God through enlightenment and we know the personal aspect of God through salvation. Both enlightenment and salvation are necessary for knowing God completely. Realize that the source of enlightenment and salvation is God himself no matter the messenger.
Lucifer the Light Bringer is the one who brings enlightenment to mankind. Enlightenment is transcending the Ego. It is about surrendering to a higher power, the divine intelligence that runs the cosmos and the universe. Enlightenment is letting go and letting God. A state of nonattachment to all things. To trust in God as being in control of all things. To harmonize with the flow of divinity and to let nature take its course. Enlightenment is the highest state of consciousness indeed. But this is only one half of the truth. Many people know only the universal aspect of God but not the personal Aspect.
Jesus is Lord of all creation, but he is Savior only to those who are believers. That is why many will come to him on judgment day saying “Lord we have done many wonderful things in your name. We have cast out demons, heal the sick, and prophesized in your name.” But Jesus will say “I never knew you.” That is because they only knew the universal aspect of God but not the personal aspect. The name which they know him with is Christ which means Anointed One, but not Jesus which means Savior. God cannot be fully known in Enlightenment alone but in Redemption as well. To know God is Love is to know that he became the Savior of the world.
All religions know God but only Christianity knows The Lord (Yahweh) is God and Savior. Although Lucifer is the Enlightener of the world, that does not mean we should shun the doctrine of enlightenment. Most Christians have trouble living life with effortlessness and nonresistance compared to spiritually evolved people of other religions because of that hidden portion of the truth from God’s people. Lucifer was created to be the enlightener as his name signifies. God lets him play the role he was created with in this world, enlightening mankind. He is fulfilling part of God’s plan in universal unfoldment. Because the Most High God is sovereign in the workings of the universe.
Lucifer has a light side and a shadow side. The light side is where the positive exist and the shadow side is where the negative exist. Good and evil are not opposites, but are different operational facets used for creational purposes within the Unity of the One Consciousness of all that exists. Evil simply means an inferior quality compared with good. Therefore a lesser good is evil compared with a greater good. Lucifer is using his shadow side to bring people to his light side by awakening or enlightening them to the higher truth about being and consciousness.
Enlightenment is to know that everything is form that manifests from formlessness. Form is emptiness and emptiness is form. One who is enlightened sees past form into essence.
Salvation is a step to our spiritual renewal. But after salvation, a Christian has to continue being spiritually transformed from glory to glory. That is a process which takes spiritual learning which leads to evolution of consciousness and awareness. It is gaining knowledge, wisdom and understanding that makes a person more and more spiritually enlightened. All knowledge is from the Creator and can be learned from any created being that has it whether they are good or evil because knowledge is neutral. We must not be afraid to learn from evil beings but we must grow in spiritual intelligence in order to discern truth from error otherwise we will remain spiritually weak.
Enlightenment is to know that all is one and everything is connected. The fundamental reason for individuality is so that the original Creator can experience itself from an infinite number of viewpoints. It would be much more realistic if the viewpoints were truly independent and creative, with their own senses of intelligence and freewill. But all consciousness is really one. Individuals of great light are here to show others of the underlying unity of all reality. Enlightenment only allows us to realize our connection with the universal aspect of God. Salvation is our reconciliation with the personal aspect of God through Jesus Christ.
All knowledge and development of the external world is for knowing and developing the internal world. Understanding reality is for understanding the mind because we are all mind. Spiritual evolution is the ultimate work and is of eternal value. Spiritual learning takes place on Earth and continues on in heaven.
