Is Jesus God?


God is the fire of life, our thoughts the form. When we think of the fire, our thoughts become alive. Fire begets fire, until at last, all is fire, and all is alive.

The burning bush on Mt. Sinai was on fire, but the fire did not consume it. The bush was fully fire and fully itself, just as Jesus is said to be fully God and fully human.

One gives life, and one gives form. This is the “mystery.” When we surrender ourselves to God, God uses us “as us.” We don’t disappear, we become more alive.






About Michael Maciel

My name is Michael Maciel, and I have studied the Ancient Wisdom Teachings and symbolism for most of my adult life. In the early 1970’s, I was ordained a priest in the Holy Order of MANS, a service and teaching order of which I was a member for the better part of that decade. I now serve on its Board of Directors and teach regular classes on the Mystical Interpretation of the Bible and the Tree of Life Study Plan, which deals primarily with the practical application of the Laws of Creation.

  1. Patrick rainford says:

    ” One gives LIfe, one gives Form ” In Jewish (Lurian) Kabbalah the Holy Fire in the aleph/beth alphabet is the letter Shin, called the Holy Fire. And Shin joins Chokmah, Wisdom and the Life Force Chiah, to Binah the form giving Substance of All. Shin is called the Holy Fire because it emanates from the Divine Triad of the God Head Kether, The Crown of Creation.
