Greetings and good morning brothers and sisters. This is Dr. James Perry continuing with our series
where we seek to explore the deeper meanings of our relationship with Jesus Christ. Over the years,
the heavenly Father has revealed many revelations of spiritual truth to me, and I want to share them
with you. This morning we will ponder our lives as we seek to understand the search for ultimate
And now, sit back and listen to today's message.
The Search for Ultimate Truth
"Jesus said unto, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by
me." John, Chapter 14, Verse 63.
Brothers and sisters, how high a level of truth is it possible to know in our human experiences and
when is it possible for us to know it? All truth takes origin in the heavenly Father and is personalized
in His Son. While sojourning on earth, the divine Son, Jesus, declared that he was the way, the truth
and the life. What did he mean by that statement? In as much as Jesus was a personal revelation of
the heavenly Father, His life becomes the way to the heavenly Father, and being the personification
of the heavenly Father in human form, He becomes the personification of Truth. All who would seek
to find the Father must do so through His Son.
The life of Jesus demonstrates the beginning of the faith adventure of divine sonship as well as the
final faith adventure of divine sonship. In Him consists all actualized potentials for divine Sonship.
So we must look to Him to find divine sonship at every stage of our existence, past, present and
future. Frankly, Jesus Christ is the ultimate Truth. The search for ultimate truth is the search for
Jesus Christ, the divine Son of the living God.
Jesus knows all the actual and potential relationships that exist and can exist with our heavenly
Father. To establish a given relationship at a particular level we must look to this divine Son. Now
that we acknowledge Jesus as the ultimate Truth, we must find out what that means. What is the
meaning of a relationship with the Father on ultimate levels in human experiences? What is the value
of such a relationship? We know that the life of Jesus discloses these values and meanings. If we
examine the life of Jesus we can probably understand something of these values and meanings.
Jesus' life began with the experience of slowly becoming aware of God and progressing to Supreme
levels, and presently to ultimate levels. Supreme levels of God consciousness are associated with
growth in time and space by a sense of separation and of duration. This means that each experience
reveals a greater God consciousness (Truth) in the soul. As the mass of experience increases, subject
to the divine will, eventually the finite experience of God consciousness is exhausted, and the
ultimate quest begins.
In the supreme comprehension of divine truth, there is a oneness, but this oneness is still subject to
the experiences of time and space. That is, each experience shows a greater oneness, but there is still
a potential separation between the identity of the human and the identity of the Divine. And although
the human will always submits to the divine will, there are still two wills; one humanized and one
spiritualized, although perfectly synchronized. As finite human experience is exhausted of divine
values and meanings, so does the distinction between the two wills become exhausted. The two wills
become one. The identity of the human becomes indistinguishable from the identity of the Divine.
No longer is there separation. All sense of isolation disappears as the human identity becomes one
with the divine identity, void of time and space.
Now how does this actually manifest itself in the daily life of the human being? We know that the
Father's spirit comes to dwell within our minds just as soon as we make our first moral decision. In
some way not understood well, making a moral decision provides the fabric by which the Father's
spirit weaves the moral fabric into the reality of our growing souls. Each moral decision we make
allows for further growth of our souls. Now there is a finite limit to which the soul can grow in
human experiences while still in the flesh. We recognize this limit as the level of divine fusion--the
level whereby the soul matures to the point where it can become one with the Father's spirit.
Consider the examples of Enoch and Elijah, two souls who actually achieved these divine levels of
oneness with the Father's spirit.
The Father's spirit has the divine plan for our spiritual lives. This plan consists of a set of spiritual
values and meanings that are actualized as a result of living and working on earth. Each experience
that is completed, subject to the Father's will, adds to the mass of total finite experience. When the
total finite experience has been mastered in the flesh, then has finite capacity been exhausted. In
human experience this means successfully completing each experience of life subject to the Father's
will. This submission lead to fusion levels, where the spirit and the soul become factually one.
The Father's spirit and his spirit helpers, the angels, are leading us into progressive moral and
spiritual experiences to the effect that we might actualize prerequisite spiritual values, thus leading
to supreme levels of truth. It requires a certain amount of experiences subject to the Father's will to
reach supreme levels of human existence. For each individual this level is different depending on
the potential concealed within the individual. We know that the divine Son, Jesus, lived the mortal
life reaching supreme and ultimate levels of spiritual existence. We also know that he did not
experience every experience that was possible, but we know that those that he did experience led to
an ever increasing awareness of the heavenly Father and His relationship thereto. He did all of this
by his dedication to doing the Father's will, in conjunction with the Father's spirit and his spirit
When the mass of experience has been completed on earth, subject to the Father's will, then will we
too achieve supreme levels of spiritual existence while in the flesh. Through Jesus we can achieve
these levels of truth, for He is the way, the truth and the life. Within Him, He does have the power
to bring it about. We know that His Spirit of Truth also indwells us alongside the Father's spirit.
With Jesus, we can move from being a servant of God to the divine heights of sonship with God.
Through His Son, Jesus, we can perfect our relationship with the Father so that we can be one with
Him. Our dedication to doing His will can become so great that we transcend the finite and appear
on ultimate levels of divine reality. Our love for the Father overwhelms everything, even time and
space, causing us to experience ultimate truth in our human experiences.
"Not my will but Your will" is the secret to achieving this marvelous level of divine kinship. A will
dedicated to doing the Father's will, invested by the Spirit of Truth can have no barriers toward
reaching an absolute Being. Even time and space must yield when it comes to the comprehension
of divine values and meanings. Only the heavenly Father can place boundaries on the wholehearted
quest to find Him; the very Father who has decreed us to become perfect even as He is perfect. And
the Heavenly Father is truly infinite, eternal, and absolute. When we who are finite identify and
pursue the Heavenly Father who is absolute, then must time and space give way to the ultimate, even
This concludes today's message on understanding the search for ultimate truth. We hope you find
something in this message to ponder and pray about as you go about your day. Until next time, this
