All Revelations guide man to believe
in the Supreme Power, the Originator of the Divine Law;
a belief that may free him from devotion to any false life
and relate him to the divinity within and around

In the New Testament Jesus stresses the transcendent aspect of God, when he tells his disciples, "call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven" (M't.: 23: 9). In the prayer he taught them (M't.: 6: 9-13) he addresses Him, "Hallowed be Thy Name": a guidance to his disciples to remember always that God is Transcendent, Absolute, and Eternal.

When Jesus tells his disciples to "behold the fowls of the air" and the "lilies of the field" and how "God so clothe the grass of the field", he actually draws their attention to the existence of the Divine Law that sustains all creatures.

To realize that there is One Origin for the whole existence, will be reflected in man’s relation to the whole world. His belief in the Supreme Power means he will not worship limited objects, or serve false deities, he will serve the One.

Jesus says:

"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. (M't: 6: 24)

Jesus leads his followers to recognize the divinity within in order to be liberated from their limitations. Jesus calls the divine aspect within man's soul "the kingdom of heaven"

"The kingdom of heaven is at hand." (M't:10:7),
it is not far outside, here or there
it is within you; ". (Luke:17:21)
The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. (M't:13:33)

The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field. (M't:13:24)

The good seeds are the children of the kingdom (M't:13:38)

If people believe Jesus and follow his words, they will be free as he told them

"If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (Joh:8:31, 32).
