16. John Testifies about Jesus Again.
As more people began to follow Jesus than were following John, he indicated again that Jesus held the keys to the higher consciousness. John had prepared people for Jesus, and he was glad that Jesus was truly wedded to God. Hearing his voice John knew that he was connected to God. Therefore in humility he let the energy shift to the greater spiritual presence. He knew that Jesus came from the highest realms of awareness and could handle everything.
John taught people the physical or earthly teachings; now they were to receive the spiritual teachings. Nevertheless many did not accept them. John accepted that they were true teachings from God given freely. God loves the soul as an extension of its very being, and the realized soul does the work of God. Those who trust in the soul live more fully; those who ignore it do not recognize their own life essence, and thus their consciousness is separated from the awareness of God.
