A disciple is one who follows the method of the master!
A Christian disciple follows the methods of Jesus, the Christ!
The personality of Jesus is no replacement for the words of the Christ that He conveyed to us.
Only by following His words and directions, do we become disciples. The word disciple means
“a follower of the METHOD!” Do you think His Holiness Jesus came and went, without leaving a definite Method for us to follow? No, He did not leave us method-less!His words make up the methodology of the Christ!
Why do you think the new testament is called “the Gospel (the good news).”
The word sinner means “Not a follower of the method” if you want to succeed you have to have a method! If you want to succeed spiritually you have to have a spiritual method! We are told that the fruits of sin are (spiritual)death!
Can you imagine wanting to dig a tunnel beneath a river and having no method of doing so. Without a method you cannot make plans and without plans you cannot succeed. Success is “life”, failure is “death” (Biblically speaking!)
Even if you write a goal and make a plan set upon that written goal, until you discover the correct method you cannot succeed!
The central commandment Around which He(Jesus, the Christ) built his “Method” was the eleventh commandment – John 13:34, “A new commandment I give unto you(in addition to the original 10 commandments), That you love one another; as I have loved you” This was given after the last supper and is the central foundation of Jesus’s (the Christ’s) teachings.
Moses gave 10 testaments to the Jews and Christ gave just one to the Christians! 10 + 1 = 11th commandment. Yet very few Christians know the eleventh commandment and even fewer practice it. If I ask you “are you a Christian?” And you say “yes!” and then I ask you,”do you follow the commandment of Jesus?” and you say “No!” then how can you call yourself a Christian?” It’s bit like saying, “I am a follower of the road code” and then setting out on the left or the right according to your whim! Driving on the “wrong side” of the road will lead to death or serious injury(perhaps not at 3 am on a Monday morning, but definitely at 5 pm on a Friday evening!
By my definition a Christian is one who follows the commandment and methods of Christ (I Am) who was upon Jesus for three years. I am is the name of “The Christ.” The Christ is defined in the bible as an impersonal thing – “I can do all things through Christ WHICH (not a personal who!)strengtheneth me!”
It is important to realise that Jesus(the Man) and the Christ are separate parts, that Jesus became “The Christ” after nearly 6 weeks of spiritual “fasting.” Jesus went into the desert and fasted for 40 days and nights(5 weeks and 5 days.) He entered the desert as Jesus the “Good Man” and came out as Jesus, “The Christ.” Know that “The Christ” is also called “I Am”, the holy spirit and after the Christ descending on him, Jesus spoke in three ways about himself – I, as Jesus, the master.
We as Jesus and God together. And as “I Am” as the holy spirit. The holy spirit descended upon Him after his lengthy fast, for the following three years until his mission was finished!
The Christ’s name is “I AM” as expressed in, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by I Am.” [John 14:6] Also in such saying as,
“Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I Am(was)”[John 8:58]
and “Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me(I am) will never thirst.” [John 9:5]
and, “While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.” [John 9:5]
and, “Jesus said to her, ” I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies,” [John 11:25]
you see the secret of eternal life is we have to go to the messenger, through the messenger to the holy spirit (called I am)
Because I had what is called a “royal rebirth,” I went the opposite direction, straight to I am and them back to the messengers!(all of them!) If you are a Christian or a Muslim or a Jew, or whatever, you can ask to have a royal rebirth too! Simply speak it out of your mouth aloud and wait for the answer – if you are really open to it (the truth) it will come. If you are not open to it, the answer will not come to you!
