A new question came in from a reader over the weekend, asking me, do I believe in Jesus? He said he had read many of my articles on my other site, but couldn’t find my take on Jesus. So I told him that I did NOT believe in the Jesus character and referred him to one of my articles as to why.
He checked it out and a day later, hit me back, asking my thoughts on people who have near death experiences and claimed to have seen Jesus. He asked did I believe in their testimonies or not?
I thought this was a great question, as it opens the door for a deeper conversation. A conversation that I have had quite a few times over this past year with some close friends and associates. So I want to answer the reader’s question here on the blog, to share my thoughts with yall on this subject too.
The Power of Belief
I’ve been a student of the human mind and behavior since 2012 and based on my research and observations, I know that the average person has no idea how much of an impact their beliefs has on their life. I, myself, am still comprehending how powerful my beliefs are.
The fact of the matter is this though. Most of our experiences in life, whether it be good or bad, are based upon our beliefs. Whatever we have habitually seen and heard from birth to adulthood is stored into our sub-conscious; and whatever we accept as truth, sets roots there. It doesn’t matter whether or not what we believe is based on a fact or fiction; our sub-conscious accepts all deeply rooted beliefs as truth. And whatever we believe to be true, dictates our behavior and produces our reality.
This is also true on a spiritual level. Regardless of one’s religious beliefs, it’s a fact that we are spiritual forces of matter having a visible earthly experience. And though there are many different realms in the cosmos, on this earthly realm, it’s our beliefs that create our experiences with the spiritual realm. So whatever a person believes about the spiritual realm, will decide what type of spiritual experience they manifest here on earth.
Now, back to the reader who sent me the question. He asked, do I believe in the personal testimonies of those who see Jesus in near-death experiences or dreams? My answer is YES. I do believe that these people really do see the image of the Jesus character in their dreams, visions or encounters. WHY? Because that’s the “energy” they believe in.
I use the word energy because in metaphysics, thoughts are things and things are energy. Meaning, thoughts that become beliefs can manifest into tangible physical substances. The proof of this is all around you. Everything you see with your eyes as you go about your day was once an invisible thought, from the couch you sit on to the car you drive, or the bus you ride. But now it’s a physical reality.
The spiritual realm is no different. We manifest spiritual realities the same way we do physical ones. This is why, despite there being no authentic evidence of Jesus ever existing, many Christians claim to have seen Him in their dreams or visitations. There belief in him is so strong that they’re able to manifest an experience with him. The same goes for Muslims who see Muhammad or Hindus who see Krishna. Their experience is based on their beliefs.
All Characters Are Creations
When it comes to what’s real and what’s not, religious characters are no different than secular characters. The same imagination it took for the scribes of the Roman Catholic church to take the ancient Egyptian concept of Heru the KRiST and form the Jesus Character, is the same imagination it took Stan Lee to create Spiderman, Hulk, and Black Panther. So if Jesus is real, then so are they.
Me, personally, what’s real or fake doesn’t really matter when it comes to spirituality and personal growth. What matters is the lessons you learn from the character you believe in. If you study ancient Africa before the dynasty periods, that was their entire goal upon creating stories around Gods. They defined elements found within nature and formed myths around them for the purpose of explaining deep concepts about life in a relatable way; so they could pass the wisdom down to their children and generations after.
Back then before religion, the priests weren’t trying to convince people to believe in a God, they were trying to get them to recognize the God in themselves. Hence, the ancient Egyptian proverb, “Man, Know Thyself”. The mythological stories were just tools to help them ascend spiritually. They worked too, because they produced the most amazing civilizations known to man, and ruled the planet for tens of thousands of years.
Perceptions Vs. Reality
Our imagination is our most powerful asset. Almost anything we can create in our mind, can become a reality in our life if we believe in it strong enough. So when it comes to religion and spirituality, what we see and experience is purely based on what we believe in.
This is why I learned not to argue with people who claim to have saw Jesus or any other religious figure, because they most likely did. I used to be a Christian, and a Hebrew Israelite, and I’ve had some spiritual experiences too that I once accredited to biblical characters. So I know those experiences can be real — it’s our perception of it that’s often not.
Take the “holy ghost” experience for instance. Christians believe it’s the spirit of the biblical God that’s entering them. But this same experience happens to Africans during their tribal dance rituals, and to them, it’s either an ancestral spirit or nature spirit. The Native Americans have a similar experience during their sweat lodge ceremonies, and they recognize the spirit as an ancestor. This spiritual phenomenon has been happening for thousands of years throughout many indigenous cultures. But to a Christian having this experience, it’s the holy ghost.
Now you see how our beliefs shape our reality? To each, it’s own though. We all have a path to walk in life and not everybody’s is the same. But I encourage you to evaluate your beliefs from time to time, to see whether they are leading you down a fruitful path or not. If you don’t like where you’re heading, then change the beliefs that led you there. Peace & Love!
Karen Hawkins says
I liked how you explained the feelings we get from our Belief system!!!
If I was in Africa and someone told me this is voodoo practice; which America says is witchcraft or conjuring up demons; would you say that is the same spirit they believe in that is a positive practice for them???
Mo'Reese Madu says
Hey Karen. I’m not sure I understand your question. I don’t practice Voodoo myself, but I’m familiar with it. Vodoo is one of the most ancient forms of spirituality known to humanity. Most people don’t know what Vodoo actually is though, because it’s been so misrepresented by American media and western religions. But in regards to whether or not voodoo is a positive practice, it can be. For those who use it to do good, its positive. For those who use to harm others, it’s negative. All forms of spirituality can be used for good or bad. Let me know if this answered your question.
Karen Hawkins says
WOW!!! You understood my question fully!!! I have always heard that voodoo was bad and it was demonic. You are point on when you said all forms of spirituality can be used for good or bad; When someone tells me they are going to pray for me; or GOD Bless; I think in my Head; I pray that is a positive prayer from the Real God to do good to me and not harm me!!!
When someone hurts me; my first thought is to get them GOD; then I think; that GOD would not want me to act like that!!! It is so hard in this World we live in because you never know what someone’s real motives are towards you or your Family!!! I was once told we live in a Matrix or Virtual Reality; But I have to believe we are spiritual beings having an earthly experience. Because If I did not have some kind of fantasy; I believe I would go bonkers!!! I have to believe that I will see my Husband again somewhere since He has died!!!
Mo'Reese Madu says
Glad I was able to answer your question! And on the subject of you seeing your husband again, there are some options out there for you to reconnect with him now. But I will have to unpack that in a future article, when I address reconnecting with the spirits of those that have transitioned.
Karen Hawkins says
OK Great!!! Can’t wait to see this article!!! I hope I am comfortable with what you will be saying regarding transitioning Spirits!!! Because you know the Bible is against that; but again I have to see what my Spirit is saying to me when I see your article!!! And I know you think the Bible is plagiarism!!!
Mo'Reese Madu says
I don’t think its plagiarized, i know it is lol.
Bonjour, après avoir lu votre article je comprends que les catholiques qui croient dans les apparitions mariale expérimentent le même phénomène de voir ce que l’on croient vraiment avec force. Car ceux qui n’ont pas eu des visions sont sceptiques ou doutent ce qui est normale..Mais j’ai quand une question est-ce que les prophéties sont aussi dans le même ordre des croyances et les produits de l’imagination des grands penseurs du future ou prophètes ? Et puis comment comprendre le déterminisme ? Le destin existe vraiment ou c’est nous qui faconons au jour le jour ? Et si le monde va mal cela voudrait dire que c’est l’ensemble des pensées et des idées et des paroles des habitants de la terre qui sont mauvais ce qui provoque les actes mauvaises dont les guerres, les avortement etc… Et puis comment expliquer qu’à un certain moment de l’histoire les peuples ont décidé de colonisé d’autres peuples ? Et pourquoi ceux qui ont été colonisé contre leur gré n’ont pas pu se battre et se libérer car j’imagine qu’ils n’aimaient pas d’être esclaves. Bref la liste de mes questions serait longue. Merci d’avance de tes commentaires et si besoin faire un article pour me répondre où m’envoyer les références.
PS. Il faut lire.. Et si le monde va mal..

Can you translate this?

I have looked at your website. I read some. I don’t understand the hate you have for white people. Other than the hate you have, you seem spot on.
I am a white male, 54 years old, and I do not believe in the Jesus charotor either. I was not raised to hate. Treat everyone as equals. You respect, and expect to be respected back. I don’t know you, and don’t hate you. I can say this after reading your intelligent comments, I like you.
I have read Karen and your conversation, and Karen’s response. It all is so spot on, with what I have been saying for a while now. I would like to give my thoughts, for what little they are worth.
Please tell me why you have hate for White people? I want to understand, was there someone hurt by white people, that was important to you. Or just because of all the “Christian Terror”. As a white male from the USA. I have friends that are black, and have known a few who hated me for just being white. I always felt sorry for them. But after few years of searching for answers to Christianity.
Also please tell me why black men should not vote? I understand that our vote, is just a tool people are using to get in power. We are not a democracy, just a “elected democracy”. Also where are you from, Mo’reese?
I know the USA (Christian society) is responsible for many deaths. I see George Bush as a war criminal in my reality. He asked the U.N to go to war with Iraq. It was voted down, and he went anyway. Even if there would have been WMD’s. Then if that wasn’t enough. There were no WMD’s.
No one will hold Putin responsible for his role in killing all the spies. I did not vote for George Bush, and would not have voted for war with Iraq.
I also saw where Karen talked about us all being part of a Matrix or Virtual reality program. I question that everyday. When I get up and do the same old thing.
I am sorry to here you lost your husband. Truly, I am! I know you want to believe in a after life with him. But I can’t see how that would be reality. There is no place for the soul. My neighbor is 65 and her husband dided. She can’t imagine a life, without the belief she will be with her husband again. There may be a place a “Heaven”, but it won’t be about Jesus, Yahawashi, or any other Gods.
I would suggest a pet, or travel if you can. Find a new man, don’t just wait to see him in the after life. Live, Love and bring joy to others. But remember what Mo’reese said, you can’t trust anyone. Love comes to us when we are young. It doesn’t ever get duplicated, maybe replaced.
I tell my wife she is special. Because, I believe she is special, there for she is special. But I try to enjoy everyday with her, or with out her. Because it is a million times more likely, to not be an after life. Than there being an after life.
I do good with each day, that I have. If there is a after life, I will gladly be judged on my beliefs, and for what I have done with the days I have.
P.S. You shouldn’t hate random white people. If anything laugh at them, for being so wrapped up in there bible and there beliefs, they have been taught. That they don’t even accept the science behind life’s origination. Plus my closest friend and cousin.
Hate me for just speaking the truth. Judging me! So as I point out to them, they are bad Christians.
Truthfully Mo’reese, Christians scare the hell out of me. You can’t communicate with them about Jesus. When I was young, people would set and discuss the bible. But today’s Christian folk. Don’t really know what is in the bible. Oh, they know quotes.
But none of the treachery and murder that is written about in the bible. Not to mention the treachery, they use on children, and young adults.
All the best to you Mo’ and Karen.
What upsets me about Jesus, and the King James Bible is this. I met a youth Pastor, and he told me. That we got to get the children to come to the church. Then the parents will be ashamed and follow. That was so spot on, on what happened to me. I was pulled into a Pentecostal church, by a new friend at 5 years old. Eventually my mother felt bad, and joined the church. They used her, for her money.
Then when I met the woman I wanted to marry. Her mother tried to get me to become a Catholic. Eventually I refused, and I have never been sorry about that. It is a “Cult”, quoted by the Pope in his movie. He said he studied all the old written text. There is no proof of Jesus being reborn. No virgin birth. These were added by the British. The Pope said there is no Heaven and no Hell.
It is 2019, and I have no college education, but I am smart enough from travel and documentaries, etc.. To realize it is a cult. The bible explains it all. How Constantine stepped a side, if the other world leaders will agree to teach the Christian belief.
My research lead me to discover what the Jesus charators real name and appearance is.
Yahawashi, and he was a Black African, who came form the Eskanazi tribe. There is a murial of Jesus in a cave in Turkey. When I went and told this to my friends and family. They refuse to believe it. They believe he looks similar to the image they have. Most of them don’t like African Americans. All that matters to them is the bible. Which is based on other bibles, and they were based on texts. Like you said Krist. Plus the book in Hindu, about Krysna.
It is all a big lie, and it causes hate. It certainly causes more evil, than good.
Mo'Reese Madu says
This article had nothing to do with hate for anyone. Neither have I ever said I hated anyone on this site. However, all of my articles are written specifically for my people. And I make NO apologies for that. Take care!

I needed to thank you for this fantastic read!! I absolutely loved every bit of it. I have you book-marked to check out new things you post…
Mike Hardin says
Mo’resse, just found your work on TOT and that has lead me to your present site. I agree with your thoughts on the power of belief and feel it is one of humanities greatest attributes, powers, what have you. As I try to figure out the most direct route that would allow us to truly explore and benefit from the capabilities that we have been given I ask a simple question, ‘how do we teach our children to believe that they are blessed’? In my beliefs the future of a loving existence relies on us finding and practicing the answer. Would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you for the work and energy that you put into your teaching, greatly appreciated.
Mo'Reese Madu says
Being “blessed” is a matter of perception. So whatever you believe being blessed to be, you should alter your life and thoughts to vibrate at the same frequency of what that blessing is. Seeing is not believing, feeling is believing. So if you feel blessed now, it will show on the outside. And overtime, you will either become the blessing or manifest it to you. This will allow you to teach your children that they are blessed right now; it just hasn’t come into full manifestation yet. I hope this answered your question. If it doesn’t, let me know. Peace & Love!

I found this article very interesting.
You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?
You may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!
Love Spells says
Wonderful work! That is the kind of info that should be shared around the web.
Shame on the search engines for now not positioning this post upper!
Come on over and visit my site . Thank you =)
