We read in the Bible (John xiv. 3), "I will come again and receive you unto myself," and (Acts i. II), "This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven." This does not refer to the person of Christ, but to the innermost being of the Master, which was in reality the Being of God. If it concerned his person he would have said, "I shall come, but you also will come again, either in a better condition or in a worse state of being", but nothing of the kind is said. One might say, "Why then did the Master say "I", why did he not clearly say "God"?" The answer is that divine personality is the losing of the thought of one's limited self, the absolute merging into the divine and only personality; then the ego becomes the divine ego. The "I" is not identification with the limited personality but with the personality of God. When Christ said I he meant God.
