REAL RESURRECTION OF CHRIST NOW!


REAL RESURRECTION OF CHRIST NOW

Recently, I, and a group of new friends, have been discussing a very important topic, the resurrection. I posted an essay on this subject awhile ago which laid out many reasons that I believe the resurrection takes place inside of us, and may not necessarily be something that happens after we physically die. Not that I don’t believe in an after life, or that we may in fact return to earth in a new body, as Elijah did, to carry out our purpose if not complete. The truth is no one really know what happens after we die, but there is plenty of evidence out there with Near Death Experiences and the study of brain activity to prove that after we die physically, who we are spiritually lives on.

But today’s paper is not about what happens after we physically die, it is about what is happening in the here and now. I believe the problem with most religions is they are too focused on what happens after you die. What they don’t teach is that experiencing Eternal Life and the Kingdom of God is not a future event but a NOW event.

Luke 17:19-21
19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole. 20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you

So while many religious leaders and religious organizations focus everyone’s attention to what happens after they die, I will focus people to the here and now. Because NOW is where salvation is, it has nothing to do with something you experience after you die.

Luke 19:9
And Jesus said unto him, THIS DAY is salvation come to this house

And what is salvation? Is salvation being set free from something that happens in the future? Or is salvation something that saves you now? Use your head, if you are drowning you don’t need a lifeguard after you drown, you need to be saved in the here and now. And SALVATION is a now event. It is the moment you cross over from the death of your suffering, ignorance, fear, and struggle, into the life of liberty, peace, truth, and hope.

You will find that this is what the resurrection of Christ is, as well. You become a new creature, the old you was dead (ignorant) and the new you is born again (resurrected)…. This essay will show you how that is possible.

Now I will not condemn anyone as ignorant if they say there IS a literal flesh and bone resurrection. You never know, the ways of God are beyond us all. But once again, I am not focused on the future which is not here or even real, I am focused on the here and now, which is all we have. And so is God…

However, regardless of whether you believe in a literal physical bodily resurrection from the literal grave there is still much that can be spiritually learned from this essay. And if you understand that the TOMB is mankind’s ignorant soul, that Christ (The power and wisdom of God) rises out of than, yes indeed this essay is for you as well.

Matthew 23:27
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited tombs, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.

So regardless of what your particular belief is you will benefit from this essay. Personally I am moving past the old teaching of resurrection unto perfection (the whole truth and wholeness of God) – This is my desire, to know the truth no matter what the cost. I pray it is the same for you.

Hebrews 6
1 Therefore LEAVING the principles of the doctrine of Christ, LET US GO UNTO PERFECTION; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD…

We do find clearly spelled out in scripture that FLESH can never inherit the Kingdom of God, so I question why so many believe there will be a physical flesh resurrection after literal death. With that being stated, if you’re still with me, we’re about to move on to some insight that I hope will open your eyes wide and get you saying, “Wow, I never saw that before!”… Then again you may not say that at all, but I ask only that you read with an open heart, and if you really want to know the truth I know you will one day KNOW the Truth/Word/Christ.

First of all, I am neither better or worse for stating there is no literal resurrection (the way it is taught in churches I mean). For, if there is a literal physical resurrection like something out of the movies than good, and if not, well then… good. I cannot prove either and neither can anyone of you. It all boils down to what we’ve been taught or what we have been allowed to see and believe. Seeing as I cannot prove there is not, and neither can anyone prove there is a literal flesh and bone resurrection I will instead make a strong statement of my faith using the scriptures. I will say that the RESURRECTION of CHRIST takes place WITHIN US and while many are CRAVING THE DEAD BODY OF JESUS to return again alive and well, I understand that Christ is resurrected in HIS BODY, but that HIS BODY IS ALL OF US. We are the hosts, the lord of Hosts is revealed in. Our life is Christ, Our life is hid in Christ. Christ IN US is the Hope of Glory, not Christ outside of us coming again in the future. Christ is not returning, for…

Hebrews 13:5
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I (CHRIST) will NEVER LEAVE YOU, nor forsake thee

Since, Christ (The power and wisdom of God) NEVER LEFT, that means it is still within us.

Colossians 1:27
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ INSIDE you, the hope of glory

Notice, this is a MYSTERY, scripture goes on to explain that it has been HIDDEN. After all it is the Glory of God to hide a thing!

Proverbs 25:2
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing

And Christ comes (which literally means REVEALED) in the Glory of God. In other words, the Truth of who we are in Christ is revealed in our understanding of this great mystery. WHICH believe it or not is the mystery of who we really are.

I believe it is more important for us to consider what this resurrection means in the here and now. What does any doctrine benefit me, if it is a future thing. Christ said, I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes in me, THOUGH HE WERE DEAD, will live! I hope you understand literal physical dead people cannot believe anything, because THEY ARE PHYSICALLY, LITERALLY DEAD… I hope you can see the allegorical DEATH Jesus was talking about is mankind’s ignorance, or being ruled by their carnal mind.!

Romans 8:6
For to be carnally minded is DEATH; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

It’s simple really, for many life is more like death than living at all. For many their days are filled with misery and no hope at all. When trouble comes they think the worst and believe “well that’s just my life”.

Everyone that is not LIFE that is DEATH. Life is understanding who you are, that all things (even the bad) work together for the good. LIFE is following the desires of your heart, loving others, and knowing love yourself. LIFE doesn’t mean you’ll always be happy, but it does mean you understand that there is a reason for all things and that all things are meant for our learning and our enlightenment.

So DEATH, in scripture is not explaining the literal physical decay of the body, where the LIGHT (Life force) of that body has fled and only a dead shell remains. NO! The Death scripture explains is very clear, it is being ignorant to the truth of God and who you are. But there is hope for those who are living a life of Death. The Dead will RISE as scripture promises. The way for this to happen is when you are enlightened to the TRUTH/WORD of GOD, and the Power and Wisdom of God (which is Christ) is active in your thinking and evident in your life. The Dead RISE, when the Ignorant to BELIEVE the TRUTH OF GOD and become spiritual minded.

Romans 8:6
For to be carnally minded is DEATH; but to be SPIRITUALLY MINDED IS LIFE and peace.

Now I understand, a lot of you are waiting for JESUS to return in his LITERAL BODY. To which I say, you need to fully understand just who JESUS CHRIST’S BODY IS. YES, Christ will be resurrected in His literal Body… which is ALL OF HUMANITY.

“Know you not that YOU ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST” 

Oh I know, some will say, “How can that be, there is only ONE JESUS… and that is not ALLEGORICAL but LITERAL.” I in no way am saying that there was no Jesus of Nazareth. Not at all. In fact without his example, and the gospels we would not be able to discern who we are. His life was a pattern of our life. he clearly said, if you do not take up the cross and follow in the same steps you are none of his. the scripture go so far as to say, AS JESUS IS SO ARE WE.

1 John 4:17
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because AS HE IS SO ARE WE in this world.

Jesus said he is the Light of the World, and told his disciples WE TOO ARE THE LIGHTS of the World.

Matthew 5:14
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid

Now this many people aren’t ready to handle. But it doesn’t make it any less true.

1 John 3:2
Beloved, now are WE the SONS(offspring) of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM

At the moment it may not appear that we are who we are in Christ. But when THIS GREAT TRUTH, this GOSPEL is revealed to us, this LIFE IS RESURRECTED in us, then WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM. Because AS JESUS CHRIST IS SO ARE WE.

Pay attention to this next verse. Right now we are as sheep following a Shepherd, but look WHO WE BECOME when we enter into this understanding.

John 10
1Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 2But he that entereth in by the door IS THE SHEPHERD of the sheep.

Now here is the reason that we must all come to the UNITY OF THE FAITH. Because in fact we are all ONE IN CHRIST.

Romans 12:5
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another

We are ALL ONE BODY! This is why a majority of scripture teaches to do unto others as you want done to yourself. In fact, when you hurt others you are indeed hurting yourself. When you love and lift up others you are loving and lifting yourself up. Notice how scripture states, Love others as you love YOURSELF.

Romans 13:9
YOU shall love your neighbour as YOURSELF.

The entire law rests on these two things, Loving God, Loving Others. And the others you love are to be loved as yourself, for you are ONE WITH THEM!

According to scripture God only has one SON (child of God) – ADAM & CHRIST, the 1st child and the last child. But ONLY ONE begotten SON of God.

Adam, which literally means MANKIND, is the first NATURE OF MAN (Ignorant) and the second ADAM (Mankind) is RISEN, ENLIGHTENED…. So even though you see many, many people, we, the MANY make up the ONE SON (CHILD OF GOD)

Romans 12:5
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

Should the hand say to the foot, you’re not Christ. Should Bob say to Bertha, you’re not Christ? I think not… Although, not all have CHRIST RISEN (revealed) in them… HOWEVER, CHRIST is in all.

Meaning most are still DEAD IN ADAM (ignorant of who they are, which is of course God’s child) but when you BELIEVE THE TRUTH you will LIVE (Be resurrected in Christ, as Christ) — too much for some to comprehend, I understand. But think about it, we are given the NAME OF CHRIST, THE MIND OF CHRIST, AND WE ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST… who truly are we?

The instant we ate of that TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL. The POWER AND WISDOM of God was buried underneath the lies of who began to believe ourself to be. Then we put God outside of us far away from us and we DIED (Became Ignorant).

Look, the Hope of Glory is not Christ outside of me returning soon. The Hope of Glory is CHRIST IN ME. It does not say the Hope of Glory is for Christ to resurrect in a separate literal flesh body outside of our own. In fact, before Jesus died he told everyone where he was going and where he, and we, would be.

John 14
1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Now many will say THE FATHERS HOUSE is some place far away, a place called Heaven, where Jesus (the great carpenter that he is, will be building us a mansion of gold) — However, people the FATHERS HOUSE is not outside of us, in fact, WE ARE THE FATHERS HOUSE. The Temple of God – US!

Luke 19:46
Saying unto them, It is written, My house (the Temple) is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.

This is an allegory. Jesus, had to go before his followers made him God himself. And today that is exactly what a majority of Christians have done. Made Jesus separate from us, and called him God, instead of seeing Jesus as a brother.

Romans 8:29
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

This false belief takes the focus of God and finding the truth of who we are in God. Jesus always put the focus on the Father, and he also said we would do greater things than he, “Greater things than these we shall do”, that as he is a Light in this world, we are the Lights of this world, that as John put it “As Christ is, so are we in this world”. Jesus understood that we were no different from him, he was just the First born among the DEAD (Ignorant), the First Born among many brethren… – which means people, we are all ONE IN GOD. Which was the very nature of Jesus’s prayer in the Gospel of John.

John 17:11
And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

The prayer basically means, God let them understand that WE ARE THE SAME!

There is NO DIVISION in ONE. Meaning we are ALL ONE, all the SAME, all united. Think about how much better the world would be if we saw each other as a part of ourselves. If we knew what we did to them, we do to ourselves. This is a great mystery, because so many people are selfish and think they are separate from others, when in fact, as Jesus said, “Do unto others as you would like them to do unto you.” – Meaning what you do to others, will most surely be done to you, because we are all ONE.

In truth, Hosea puts the 3rd day resurrection wonderfully and it paints a clearer picture of how this truly speaks of all of us.

Hosea 6
1 Come, let US RETURN to the LORD. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds. 2 After two days he will revive US; on the THIRD DAY he will restore US, that WE may live in his presence.

The resurrection spoken here is about restoring ALL OF US to the Power and Wisdom of God (Christ), after being stricken by the darkness of our vain imagination. It is all about RETURNING TO GOD (Truth).

But, I will answer, in a nutshell, why I am not worried, or concerned, that I do not hold onto a belief that “Literal Decaying Bodies or skeletons in the ground” will rise again in the judgment. And why I am only concerned with our RISING from the DEATH of our ignorance, as judgment begins at the house of the Lord. (ME and YOU). And if judgment begins IN US then that means God is going to destroy everything IN US that is not IN HIM (GOD/TRUTH/SPIRIT) until CHRIST is formed in us, as Paul said. Every false belief (portrayed as goats, tares, etc in scripture) will be destroyed, burned away (spiritually), when Christ is RESURRECTED IN US.

Galatians 4:19
My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you

Look at a very similar passage in Revelation.

Revelation 12:2
And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

Just who do you think that WOMAN is… The WOMAN is our SOUL, who is going to deliver CHRIST. So the WORD will be RESURRECTED in our FLESH.

I spent a good deal of my life in carnal practices and principles. There was a time that I believed I had to baptize my son thanks to Catholic guilt. But I wised up and did not do the same for my daughter Shiloh, who according to the Catholic church is damned until she does so. Ah, the foolishness of vain traditions built on fear and shame.

Carnal mankind has made a god in their image. A god they can control. A god they can give birth to every year, persecute and crucify every year, and raise again every year. This is what many are celebrating today. The resurrection of Jesus, which takes all of the focus off the TRUE RESURRECTION that is to take place within us all. They look OUTSIDE OF THEMSELVES and WAIT. When God looks WITHIN and MADE CLEAR through Jesus RESURRECTION IS IN THE HERE AND NOW! So please tell me why everyone is looking to the sky and waiting and not wanting the kingdom to come (be revealed) on earth (in our waking life) as in heaven (the true spirit life/God’s ways and wisdom)

Ephesians 3:10
To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God

But now, I am moving unto perfection and I challenge you all to at least question and possibly do the same. Even though I understand “Each Man in His Order”.

Look, like Paul, there was a time that I, too, knew Jesus after the FLESH (My carnal mind) but No longer. Now I find it hard to know anyone, or anything, after the Flesh. In fact, if you’ve read my articles enough times it should be pretty clear I’m all about the “spirit” of a thing. I look for the “spirit” of what the scriptures teach, and I leave the literal (letter) because it doesn’t profit me, or anyone, at all.

In the discussion I mentioned earlier a new friend raised an important point. “What about those that witnessed Jesus placed in the Tomb, and witnessed his disappearance and ascension, etc.”

This point is the genesis of this essay and deals specifically with what was “quickened” to me about this event. Quick note of that, look again at what I wrote, “what was QUICKENED to me”. You when reading this had no problem understanding I meant, what was revealed to me, what was made clear to me. Yet, there are many people who will say a “Quickening” spirit is a spirit that will re-animated a literally physically dead body. As opposed to understanding it is all about QUICKENING (giving understanding and wisdom which is a tree of life to one who had previously been ignorant.)

1 Corinthians 15
45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

Our first nature is all about our five senses, it’s all about the temporal, sensual world. The first man, in other words, is NATURAL. (Get it?) Our second nature (after the truth has been RISEN within us) was made a quickening spirit. In other words, we don’t look to the nature, literal letter of things, we see to the SPIRIT of things. We don’t say the parable is literal, we say, “this is what the parable is teaching us.”

But I digress, I am going to attempt to show you that the events after Jesus’ death, where Joseph and Nicodemus begged for the dead body of Jesus from Pilate and buried him is ACTUALLY a picture of carnal Christians who CRAVE that DEAD JESUS (who they continue to worship today as a Dead Man from two thousand years ago). You find an image of that Dead Man hanging from crosses in Churches, in paintings, in movies, on tv, on tee-shirts, jewelry, etc… And then many go so far as to say that Dead Man Jesus is God. Knowing full well, Jesus never taught this, and that the scriptures are pretty clear we are not to place an image to what God looks like at all. He shouldn’t be likened to anything in the sea, in the air, in the earth, beneath the earth, and most definitely not in the IMAGE OF CORRUPTIBLE NATURAL MAN!

Romans 1:23
And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man

You see God is not Man, God is the SPIRIT WITHIN MAN! God was IN JESUS, God is in CHRIST reconciling the world to himself.

2 Corinthians 5:19
To wit, that God was IN Christ, reconciling the world unto himself

You see, most today ignorantly worship a Dead Flesh Man from 2000 years ago, as opposed to worshipping the LIFE GIVING SPIRIT that is the SON OF GOD, which is the WORD OF GOD, which is the LIGHT OF ALL MANKIND, which we ALL HAVE OUR LIFE HID IN (Christ). This WORD is what LIVES and is RESURRECTS WITHIN US and BECOMES US and we BECOME HIM.

John 17:22
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one

This is like me praying, God please let them understand what I understand that we are one, so that they can understand that they are one, that we are all ONE! You in me, I in them, etc, etc. ONE! Please tell me how this leaves room for a resurrection outside of us, separate from us?

No, Christ is FORMED/BIRTHED in us. Christ is revealed in us! Christ is resurrected IN US!

“Until Christ be formed IN you.”

But the many that call themselves Christians today, are just like Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus. They don’t want CHRIST resurrected WITHIN THEM! They want the DEAD JESUS MAN. And so they take this belief and tuck it away in their Tomb (hearts/soul/ignorant understanding) and of course when people come looking for the WAY, TRUTH, AND LIFE it is nowhere to be found. Because you can’t find the LIVING (enlightened) among the DEAD (carnal/ignorant).

 John 19
38 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus. 39 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pound weight.  40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. 41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.

Here we see the picture of two men, Joseph and Nicodemus. Let’s first look at Joseph of Arimathaea.

JOSEPH OF ARIMATHAEA

1) Joseph was a disciple in SECRET – He was ashamed of knowing the living Jesus. — And we know how that goes over with Christ.

“Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed”

2) Joseph was STILL WAITING for the Kingdom of God to come.

“He was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself WAITED for the kingdom of God.” Luke 23

I guess Joseph missed Jesus’ lesson that the KINGDOM of GOD is here now and WITHIN. Perhaps that is why he was still waiting.

Now onto Nicodemus.

NICODEMUS

1) Nicodemus was also ashamed of the TRUTH (Jesus) this is why he came to Jesus at NIGHT. A symbol of seeing Jesus in the DARK (carnally)

“There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:  The same came to Jesus by NIGHT” John 3

2) Nicodemus was ignorant of the truth, much like Joseph of A.

Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?  

Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?

Both Joseph and Nicodemus were ignorant and ashamed of Christ. But BOTH CRAVED THAT DEAD BODY of JESUS. Isn’t this what so many so-called Christians are doing today. Aren’t they waiting for that Dead Jesus to return. Isn’t that REALLY what the Easter celebration is all about. One day every year getting together to celebrate something that happened in the past (whether literal or allegorical) it is obvious this was something that happened in the past. And Mankind re-peat the past again and again. Yet, we are clearly instructed to FORGET ABOUT THE PAST and MOVE UNTO PERFECTION.

Philippians 3:13
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are BEHIND, and reaching forth unto those things which are before

Paul said, he FORGOT what happened in the past and reached for what was to come. Why do most people today continue to live in the past. Why does mankind continue to look back and wait for the future, instead of looking within in the here and now? The reason is, “they know not what they do.”

So in their ignorance, ignorant mankind does what Joseph of A and Nicodemus did. They dress up dead Jesus, by wearing dead Jesus jewelry, talking about how Jesus died, acting it out and getting everyone to put their faith in past events instead of NOW. It’s a faith based on Death (THAT WHICH NO LONGER EXISTS/LIVES). Yes, carnal/ignorant mankind also CRAVES THE DEAD BODY OF JESUS…

They just can’t wrap their minds around the truth of the resurrection which is unto LIFE IN THEM. But the DEATH of someone in the past, and that dead man’s resurrection they say is literally true. And so instead of reaching for Christ within, they keep looking behind and say he is coming again.

Like many today, Joseph, and Nicodemus, didn’t have a clue about the things of God. If they did, they probably would not have been so concerned about “preserving” and “storing” the DEAD BODY of Jesus after following a bunch of vain religious burial rites and traditions. However, many today elevate these men as faithful disciples. They talk about how AWESOME NICK AT NIGHT AND JOSEPH A are, for taking that Dead Body of Jesus and parading it around, wrapping it all nice with sugar and spice and burying that dead body away in their new tomb. But people, they didn’t know the first thing about the truth. They wouldn’t be seen in public with the LIVING CHRIST, but the DEAD JESUS they were all about. That should say something.

Just like I will say, look we are all ONE WITH CHRIST, CHRIST’S LIFE IS OUR LIFE, CHRIST IS YOU AND I when that Daystar is risen in our heart(understanding)… people don’t want to have a part of this LIFE! No, they only want the version where Jesus is dead and gone and coming again. Just like Nick at Night and Joseph A.

These two ignorant men followed the ritual LAW for burial. Something that they would NOT DO had they the slightest understanding of CHRIST WITHIN. In Fact, I don’t think they would have paid much attention to the Dead Flesh Body of Jesus at all, if they knew the truth.

But, Joseph and Nicodemus are like many today that focus on the OUTWARD MAN which perishes, and ignore of the inward man, that is renewed. They worship the Creature, as opposed to the CREATOR. Which NO MAN can literally see!

“No one has seen the Father at any time” “God is spirit and truth”

Now a side note about what Jesus said we will be like in the Resurrection, for those who are waiting for us to rise again as immortal flesh bodies that we have right now.

29Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do ERR, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. 30 For in the RESURRECTION they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are AS THE MESSENGERS of God in heaven.”

In the Resurrection we are AS THE ANGELS (MESSENGERS OF GOD’S TRUTH), not as we are now (SELFISH CARNAL SOULS)… When we are RESURRECTED we are as God’s messengers, as Sons and Daughters of the most high! (United in God’s spirit) 

So, now that we have a clearer picture of Joseph and Nicodemus. We see that they were two ignorant, howbeit well-meaning, good men, who CRAVED the LITERAL DEAD BODY of Jesus, and then followed the DEAD LAW and BURIED their DEAD JESUS in a TOMB for the DEAD.

Had they paid attention in the “Living” Jesus school, they would not have done such a thing.

Matthew 8:22
But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

Joseph and Nicodemus must have missed that day. Since they were BURYING DEAD JESUS. And as I mentioned earlier many today are the same. On Easter many are acting out the death and resurrection of that man who died two thousand years ago, never once understanding that Christ and they are in fact one.

There are carnal people who will wrap, bury, and protect that DEAD JESUS, they crave that DEAD BODY (The flesh man) and yet, they will NEVER admit that CHRIST Resurrects IN THEM. Like Nicodemus and Joseph they are ashamed of the LIVING CHRIST. Because this wisdom has not yet been quickened to them. But one day it will, each man in his order. They see themselves separate from Christ, not realizing it is impossible to be separate from Christ, as everything has its existence in the Power and Wisdom of God’s Holy Spirit.

Romans 8:39
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Look we can NEVER be separate from CHRIST (which is God’s word/truth/wisdom/spirit/son). We can only be DEAD (ignorant) to the TRUTH of that.

Now, I want to tell all of you what and who CHRIST is. We know many say, it means annointed ONE. But really, what does CHRIST MEAN, and what does CHRIST DO, and why Christ? Well check out what scripture says, Christ is made to become for us!

1 Corinthians 1:30
But OF him are YOU -IN- Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Re-read that people. The WORD OF GOD is TRUTH, a LAMP to our FEET, LIFE. And Christ is MADE to become for us, WISDOM, RIGHTEOUSNESS, SANCTIFICATION, AND REDEMPTION. Christ is TRUE LIFE. And we are OF HIM meaning our very essence is GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT revealed in CHRIST. But no one seems to want this, they want and crave that DEAD BODY OF JESUS.

The Natural man cares only about Natural things. So it makes sense that so many are waiting for a literal natural appearance of Jesus Christ. But the Spiritual Man, which is our SECOND NATURE, knows nothing naturally, waits for nothing, and looks for nothing, for everything is WITHIN!

2 Peter 1:19
We have also a more SURE WORD of prophecy; whereunto YOU DO WELL THAT YOU LISTEN, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the DAY STAR ARISE IN YOUR HEART.

Notice, it doesn’t say, the DAYSTAR coming again from a far off distant place. This SURE WORD OF PROPHECY speaks ONLY OF Christ RISING IN YOUR HEART to become Wisdom, understanding, righteousness, redemption, sanctification. CHRIST ONLY RESURRECTS IN YOU PEOPLE!

Few will believe Peter’s “SURE WORD” of prophesy. Because they have been taught since they were children, the same error they continue to teach today to their children. And if you dare say a word otherwise, you will be threatened, attacked, torn down, because the Darkness (Ignorant) hate the Light. (Truth)

“Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:”

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.”

It’s all about the OUTSIDE with those stuck in Adam (The natural carnal man). They worship the Flesh, which is why they condemn and attack, as these are fruits of Carnality. To the carnal religious it’s all about the Flesh. They are right in their own carnality and pride and the rest who believe differently (In “their” eyes will burn for all of eternity)

Now, does that sound like they worship a God of Love? A God, who teaches humility, long-suffering, patience? A Teacher is to be apt in these areas, not quick to judge and condemn. Christ did NOT come (rise/revealed) into the world to CONDEMN it but to SAVE it. And when Christ RISES in each of us, we too will be saved! Saved from our own ignorance, not some future torture.

Today on Easter, many may dress up their DEAD BELIEFS and do all they can to make their false beliefs look, and smell good. They want to “PRESERVE” their error and hold unto it forever. No matter how you slice it, the Jesus they are working so hard to “PRESERVE” is DEAD. Then, like the ignorant and ashamed Joseph and Nicodemus, MANY want to make sure their TOMB is sealed so they can KEEP THAT DEAD JESUS safe, so no one will take what they now own away. And they do this by ROLLING A GREAT STONE in front of the TOMB.

And what does this stone represent? Their works, beliefs and laws!

Consider, how the STONE needs to be rolled away to water he sheep. The STONE needs to be thrown to kill the Giant. The STONE is used to KILL and PUNISH. The STONES are what the LAW is written on to begin with. Joseph, and Nicodemus are pictures of those who worship a DEAD JESUS and keep that DEAD JESUS tucked away and covered by their works of the law, which is all death.

How do I know this? Well, what did the ANGEL say when everyone was looking in a TOMB (Carnal soul) for the RISEN CHRIST? Mind you they were NOT looking for the dead Christ at this point but the RISEN CHRIST and they could not find Christ there… and what did the ANGEL SAY?

“Why seek you the living among the dead?”

You cannot FIND THE TRUTH in DEAD BELIEFS or CARNAL UNDERSTANDING. You will NEVER find the TRUTH if you continue to look for DEAD FLESH to be raised. No matter how many Easter services you attend.

The good news is even this GREAT STONE (works, carnal beliefs, laws and traditions) will be rolled away when the TRUTH descends from a higher place of understanding and is revealed to us. And it will shake our beliefs and traditions to the very core, breaking apart every foundational belief we once put our faith in.

Matthew 28:
2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

And when that day comes, we will know Christ as we are known by Christ!

1 Corinthians 13:12
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

News flash people, when you know as you are known, YOU KNOW YOUR TRUE SELF!

Colossians 3:
4 When Christ, who is OUR LIFE, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

THE DEATH OF RELIGION


THE DEATH OF RELIGION

Samuel said to Saul, “You’ve done foolishly… Now YOUR kingdom shall NOT continue. The Lord is looking for those after his own heart!”

If this above passage doesn’t speak volumes to you about the state of religion today then you must revist this story again. Saul’s Kingdom was in the wilderness, David’s Kingdom was established in the land of promise. Saul was consumed with pride, tormented, no longer cared for God’s timing or ways. Saul could not kill the GIANT carnal nature within him, because his man made armor did not fit. Instead of recognizing the new day and the way of love and faith, Saul sought to kill the “beloved of God/David”. David (Those beloved of God) would not take the Kingdom by force, but waited on God. In the end Saul would perish, as would those who stood with him. David would assume the crown of Righteousness. This is the day we are in. The Death of Religious abuse and persecution is at it’s end. And we, Like David, will dance into the land of promise naked (free from the religius beliefs that hid our true nature from sight)

This is a wake up call for all of us. We must ask God “teach me the truth no matter what the cost.” Because LOVE, ACCEPTANCE, PEACE, AND SHARING is what will bring the greatest riches to mankind. I pray this speaks directly to those who need to hear it.

MAKE ME A LIVING EPISTLE


MAKE ME A LIVING EPISTLE PART 1

I’m on a mission you see, to see God at work in my life, by seeing those he places in my path. My desire is to reach as many people as possible without mentioning any religion, or putting out any religious mumbo jumbo, no I simply want to show love to others.

The day has come when you don’t need to go door to door, saying “KNOW GOD”, all will KNOW GOD from the least to the greatest. So my next couple of posts here will be different. There will be days, where I have stuggled and God has allowed me to overcome, days when I have been blessed and God has allowed me to stop everything I am doing to help another, days when I don’t want to mention God at all, but I promise these days will mean something to us all. Because I am writing them, to learn from them myself.

This new series of essays, is my way of simply sharing how I desire to see the world, and others. And my desire is to change this world, to have peace where there is pain, hope where there has never been. I want everyone to know, that no matter what is happening, IT IS ALL FOR THEIR GOOD AND THE GOOD OF THE WORLD!

I believe people are hungry to know the real God, the real Christ, or whatever SPIRIT you want to call the ONE SPIRIT IN US ALL CALLED “LIMITLESS LOVE AND LIFE.” I believe it is the day, where GOD is meant to be seen, heard, felt, and rejoiced over THE WORLD. The day when the weak will become strong in their compassion, and the strong will become weak in their greed and pride, and together they will help each other to come to the knowledge of the Truth and the stature or the perfect creation, which is our destiny, who we are and have forgot. GOD’S CHILD!

I will not force my beliefs on anyone, and I will do my best to only answer emails I get saying I am wrong, will a solid answer that will show love. Because we are all brother and sisters, we are all one, we are not separate and my goal is show everyone that. I believe that by doing this, more will know this and do this in return, and like a wild-fire it will spread, and then the world will finally know what REVIVAL IS! Not some carny show, where false healers shout about false healing, but people in their suffering can find the purpose and joy and peace of it all!

By showing them this love it won’t matter what faith they are, they will know God, regardless of what the name, they will know that what I am, they are too, and I, by looking for these moments, without great money, without greed deeds, will make a difference. Whether it be a simple talk at a counter, or what you are about to read below, the difference is going to be made. And people will understand how powerful, unique, and special they are, regardless of what they have been through, or currently are. They will learn that what they believe, they can become and what they believed they are. They will know their circumstances are there to help them understand they can rise above them, and finally let them go. Most importantly, they will understand they are not better than anyone, and this is when the last war will be won in their lives. Because they will have learned to give up the fight, and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

Just yesterday I wrote about rejoicing in my trials. About how as I sat in my house, watching the flat roof be repaired, our finances get a bit worse… well let’s just say a lot of debt. What I didn’t expect however, was after writing an article about praising God in the midst of the storm, and trusting there was a way out, that the VERY NEXT DAY, I would be getting such incredible stomach pain, that I thought I would die. I went to sleep, knowing it was my Crohn’s disease. Something I have had for years, since I was a teen. A serious case of Crohns, many blood transfusions, hospitalizations, accidents, surgeries, bowl resection, and too many horrible tests to recall. I suffered until I met my wife, then more trials would surface, this time in regards to my childhood, which I will get into at a later time.

But that is a piece of why I believe I got Crohns disease at 15, and suffered for so long. A disease where your immune system attacks your digestive system, the allegory of course, MY SELF DEFENSE mechanism attacking My DIGESTIVE SYSTEM, I hated myself, thought I was no good, so how could I possibly EAT OF THAT BREAD OF LIFE… But I also would go on to try to be the best at everything to gain approval, and this is why I accomplished so much. Because I believed my accomplishing something great would finally pave the way for people to love me, and I would finally feel worthy to be loved! Because I had been conditioned and programmed to believe I had to please everyone else, to which I found I was only rewarded with rejection, abuse, abandonment, betrayal, mocking hate, accusations, gossip, and other yucky stuff.

But isn’t it the saddest thing, to hear someone say, “the only way for me to feel worthy of love is to do something great.” The truth being, we are all great, we don’t need to work to be anything, we need to accept and love.

ADAM AND EVE, were already the image of God, they didn’t need to eat of that tree or do anything to become like God, they were BORN THAT WAY! And so are we, but we too, ate of this tree called, the cares of this world, the laws of religion, and man, and we too feel ashamed of who we are and hide behind out many works and accomplishments, or titles, or street rep, etc, as Adam and Eve hid behind their fig leaves, lost in the trees of their own imagination. Which is the world! So my CALLING, to quote a great book, called THE CALLING (HINT HINT HINT) is to “WAKE THEM UP FROM THIS SLUMBER!” Because TOO MANY PEOPLE, including those who have tried, and try to hurt me, even some reading this now, feel that they are no good, will amount to nothing, and need to prove to the world how great they are, because they feel so shallow. But like ADAM and EVE they simply forgot they already are perfect. I’m here to remind them. Because if no one in their life told them how good they are, someone needs to. If they are suffering and struggling, they need to know it is for a great purpose and that God has not abandoned them, but given them a oppurtunity to be a light in this world…

WELL THAT’S ABOUT TO CHANGE! Make me a Living Epistle to be read of all men, let ME, be an image of God in this world, and never let me say you must do this or that, let me simply tell other who they are at heart, and help them to remember, they aren’t their past, they aren’t their mistakes or what people have called them. They are GOD’S CHILD AND ABLE TO DO ALL THINGS IF IT IS DONE FOR ALL THINGS! So please enjoy a day on this adventure I began.

DAY 2: 1/20/2009

My pain got so bad, every other minutes it felt like knives were turning inside me. My beautiful wife all night, worried, in the morning she would call in sick and take me to the hospital. Boy was I in pain. The other day, I rejoiced at how hard things were, I didn’t factor this into the equation.

However sick I was, I KNEW many good things would come out of it.

EMERGENCY ROOM!
ut I Praise God they are admitting me:) just what I needed, a time to heal up, no responsibility, people surrounding me who ONLY want me to get better. My wife rubbing my head and telling me how much she loves me, my kids so compassionate and not running around like 10,9, and 7 years olds do. No dogs to take care of, or workers to deal with and yes the drugs are nice tooooooo. 

In any event just got even better news while here, about our dream house. Now the Entire upper roof, not just the small addition roof needs to be replaced…. Wow, God is definitely moving in our life this year. Now some of you may find this hard to believe but this excites me. Because soon I will be writing a note about how good life is because of all I went through. You see, this is exactly what I want and wouldn’t change it at all, because i know not only will goodness and mercy follow me, BUT great things will come out of this and already have.

I have met one person after another who i just happened to say exactly what they needed to hear. One young man, got into a fight, he had been arrested times before, he’d sold drugs, did drugs, “did bad things” he said. I simply told him about his value and worth. I told him guilt will only create more things to feel guilty for later. I told him everything that he did, or happened in his life would make him the amazing man he was about to become. He had never been told such a thing, and he was so grateful, he went from being a young thug who thought himself to be good for nothing, to seeing that he was Gods child and could do all things, I showed him a small part of how unbelievable he is, and he wanted more. I thank God for this 25-year-old, whose rap name is Bighead… Or, the older nurse I spoke too, who overheard me talking to my wife, about how all things will, and already have worked out. The nurse was so taken by what I said, she told me how hard things were for her. And she left a different person knowing that it is only after the storm that our old nasty homes are rebuilt into the mansion we always wanted them to be. But if the storms would never come, we would have no reason to change or strive for more, and we certainly would never know how truly strong we all are.

When we trust in a God that is in control of all things and we look for the good that can come out of all we experience, when we look for the very good reason we are where we are, then we will find stories like these on a daily basis. When we rejoice in our sufferings, it doesn’t mean we don’t wish things could be different at times, it simply means we understand Gods wisdom and will is manifold greater than our own. In addition when we trust in that, we truly are being in everything and every circumstance a light in a very dark world.

I know there are so many that have a hard time seeing that there is so much good in what we call bad, but please tell me if the alternative is good news?

Would thinking that God doesn’t want you sick when you are sick give you hope? Does God not wanting hard times to fall on you but allowing it anyway, show you that God loves you?

OR

Or can you for a moment say, “Okay, you know what God this sucks, but I’m here for a reason. I have purpose and good, will come out of all I endured.” By understanding this you won’t sit around saying woe weighs me.

It’s easy to say, oh you can’t choose your circumstances, but you can change how you see them. But I tell you there is more . And you cannot simply change your view of things until you understand there is a point to all you endure. If you can’t see that perhaps you drug addiction is to help others never need drugs, your paralysis is to teach other how to walk upright, your poverty is to teach others how truly rich they are, if you can’t see that your hardship could literally change lives wouldn’t you see the good in what you had to endure. Who is to say that, that young man who many might consider a thug on the outside was tired of feeling like a failure and had plans to end it all, then God afflicted me a man he knew wouldn’t curse him or leave him to speak to that lost boy. Who is to say that that conversation made a difference and that not only will he not kill himself, he will go on to find a cure for Crohns disease, which will save countless lives… All because God afflicted me for but a moment. Would one or two days pain be worth that? Would anyone who could see the end from the beginning ever complain again, when they see all the good that comes out of it? No way!

I don’t want my suffering and hardship to ever be in vain. And I refuse to believe a God of love would allow hardship and pain unless there is something good that can come out of it. So, armed with this faith, I will use my experiences to help others who are going through the same. I will tell them look for the opportunities God planted to water so they could grow into who they are truly and what they must remember they are, Gods beloved child! 

Dont look for JUST the silver lining, but the mountain of gold hiding in your trial, with the right eyes it won’t matter what you come up against You will learn to be free. Everyone wins when you Rest in God. 

To enter in Gods rest we must cease from our work. We have to take ourselves out of the equation. It is no longer I that live but christ. We learn so much through what we suffer. And that is always how it has been to those that have tasted of that heavenly fruit called tree of life/wisdom and faith.

In prison they sang praises to God and because of it, every cage was opened and every shackle came off. This world needs more heralds of the New Day! It needs more that say Thank you My Father for all you have given, thank you for the life you have given me to me and out of all you have give me I have lost nothing, beside my ignorant unbelievingly selfish greedy untrusting heart.

Now even though many heard the praises and songs, and even though the shackles fell, many stayed in their cell. And I am saying GET OUT! LIVE FREE as this is my hope and dream.

Now to do this, to trust in God, to keep above the ways of the world as Jesus walked on water, it means you must have the desire to get rid of everything you think you know and simply trust God, as when every storm came they threw out everything weighing them down. The only thing Paul told them to keep was the faith that they would LIVE, but only if they did this. So do this, will ya? 

Trust God who makes everything beautiful in its time. And it is high time we stop with the fear, shame, guilt, and hate. We simply need to discern properly…. Choose which God you will serve, one that doesn’t want unfortunate events to happen and allows them. Or choose the God that has a point and purpose and show you the great FORTUNE in it all.

RING, RING, just now I had a call from my amazing wife, she is worried because we don’t seemingly have the money for all of these repairs and reconstruction on the house that we have. But I told not only will we have what we need, we already do… “And how do I know this?” she asked. “Because it’s happening for a reason and whatever the result is it will bring us to a powerfully rewarding finish, that right now, even though it seems like another shoe couldn’t possibly fall, I say those shoes are falling for a reason, because blessed are the feet of those that bring the gospel (good news) …

We are all going to get through what we are going through, we all have to go through what we go through, but I promise you the instant you trust God and look for the treasures and lives you can touch all around, it is the your salvation from your troubles will be found.


Love God, Love Others, by Loving God you Love others, by Loving Others You Love God!

Much more to come – tomorrow – the responses I got. Some people, actually believe i could bring this, or keep this on myself. My answer, tomorrow!

BREAKFAST WITH DEAN – Reincarnation?

BREAKFAST WITH DEAN

Early one morning, I and my friend Dean Dosher spoke about the possibility of re-incarnation, universalism, who all of humanity is, and how we are finished in perfection. I decided to record the conversation, which usually lasts about 30 minutes or so, every day or so, last night I edited the conversation down. So much ground in covered in these eleven minutes, that you may have to watch this many times, to grab hold of what is said. Philosophy which literally means the LOVE OF WISDOM is something, so many people are hungry for. WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LIFE? WHAT IS THE POINT? WHO ARE WE? You’ll have to watch and find out, and you may be surprised in the end, to find out, if we know or not. 🙂 Enjoy

My Reply to why ALL MANKIND is SAVED!

WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE?

This below comment, I posted on a friends facebook page and then my own. I didn’t think there was anything so terribly out of the ordinary or special about the comment, but it has really sparked a great conversation, and I was so surprised to see how many people were interested in hearing more, after reading this simple commentary on Facebook… I hope you enjoy it! Peace Jacob

My Reply as to what I believe! All mankind Saved.

A wonderful lady on here that I am friends with, always has something wonderful to say… Now we do believe differently, but unlike many others, she has recieved me for who I am and what I believe (I think she has at least, I know she would if she didn’t know) In any event… she posted something wonderful… I am going to share that. And then repost my comment, without mentioning her name out of my great respect for her, and because she has the best smile I have ever seen 🙂

Here is her post:
John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. You need to believe it to receive it. What do the universalists do with that?

HERE IS MY REPLY

Hey (You) first I want to say I am NOT A UNIVERSALIST… A universalist believes all roads lead to God… I believe ALL ROADS LEAD TO CHRIST, WHO leads us to the father. Because there is only ONE WAY TO KNOW THE FATHER, AND THAT IS BY HIS CHILD…

So, not a Universalist here, but I do believe God finishes his creation in victory “he saw all that he made and said it was good” –

I personally believe God is not a failure, and that his arm is not slack that it cannot save, and for those who understand that Nothing can thwart God’s will, “neither him that runneth or willeth but God”, and for those that understand that it is GOD’S WILL that ALL BE SAVED and come to the KNOWLEDGE of the truth and the stature of the perfect man…

1 Timothy 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth…

I don’t believe you can know the father without knowing who YOU ARE in the SON. But I do believe that ALL will CONFESS CHRIST and SUBMIT to Christ In Them, as it is written…

Phil 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
— Now look at that next line, TO THE GLORY OF GOD – Lots will say, then it is too late. But no man knows the hour or time, or God’s ways for they are above ours.

11And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father

Every – means Every… I believe that out of ALL the father gave the son to save, as Jesus put it, “I lost not one save the SON OF PERDITION” – remember who the Son of Hell is (The antichrist spirit/betrayer with in the heart of the religious, who would rather betray the love of God for money, than think better of God and others)

I believe that ALL of creation will sing praises to God, That GOD BRINGS in ALL — If the firstfruits (christ) be holy than the whole harvest is holy)

Also Romans states ALL THE GENTILES will be grafted in, and than ALL ISRAEL shall be saved. (that’s also pretty much everyone)

To believe that God is inept and cannot accomplish his goal, to make man in his IMAGE (CHRIST) – In CHRIST we ALL (EVERYONE) live breathe and have our existence, is to state God is not God.

To say God gave man free will, which I challenge anyone to show me what choice Moses, Joseph, Pharoah, Jonah, Jesus etc had… but let’s say Man has free will, meaning a WILL OUTSIDE OF GODS…

Even though Jesus said, “I can do NOTHING OF MYSELF”

But even if God leaves it up to mankind. What does a Good parent do for their children, correct them, teach them, or give up on them?

We don’t know how long life is, what happens after we die, we only have speculation, God is not mocked whatever a man sows he shall reap… Who is to say that God doesn’t have this very principle in place (If he wants us to “choose” him) – Even though Jesus said “You didn’t choose me, I chose you” and also IT IS WRITTEN “No ONE can come to the SON unless the FATHER DRAWS HIM“… But lets say God is not Soveriegn, that it is NOT ABOUT FAITH but about our WORKS (WHAT WE SAY AND DO) — Don’t you think OUR GOD is big enough to correct us justly, teach us correctly, and not be a HYPOCRITE.

If God says there should NEVER be an end to OUR FORGIVENESS, and that we SHOULD LOVE OUR ENEMIES… Why wouldn’t GOD who is perfect (who knows how to treat his children better than us) LOVE HIS?

Love the world SO MUCH he gave his ONLY BEGOTTEN SON that whoever BELIEVES and scripture says ALL WILL, and not only that, but submit to Christ to the GLORY OF GOD… Don’t you think it is possible, that a God of Love, could change a persons heart as easily as he Hardens it (Pharoah)

There is so much false teaching, there are so many lies we have been sold over the years, I trust a God of Love, one that has a plan, one whose mercy endures forever, who’s plans and will MANKING cannot thwart God’s will…

1 Timothy 2:3-4 …God our Savior; Who will have ALL mankind to be saved…


John 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world

Christ didn’t come to CODEMN but to save… because it is GOD’S will that ALL WILL BE SAVED! Everyone, it is written, will come to the KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH and the STATURE OF CHRIST. Everyone!

But I will leave you with this last scripture…

Ephesians
1:9 when He made known to us the secret of His will. And this is in harmony with God’s merciful purpose 10 for the government of the world when the times are ripe for it–the purpose which He has cherished in His own mind of restoring the WHOLE CREATION to find its one Head in Christ; yes, things in Heaven and things on earth, to find their one Head in Him

So I agree, that anyone who thinks YOU DON’T HAVE TO BELIEVE won’t recieve, I will HOLD OUT HOPE, that scripture is true and that ALL WILL BELIEVE AND RECIEVE and GOD’S CREATION is finished in victory, and EVERYTHING HE MADE GOOD AND WORTHY OF PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING.

But I am NO UNIVERSALIST…But I do question, why I think HIGHER OF GOD’S PROMISE AND SOVEREIGNTY and LOVE and COMPASSION than a majority of Christians who believe a majoriy of those God created will be LOST, or worse still cast into some place of infinite torture… (Which by the way does not exist) – But why? I question do most people believe our Perfect and Wonderful and Almighty God is a Callous Hateful Vindictive God?

If we would never do this to our children, if we would always love and NEVER give up on our children, Is God more Righteous than us by giving up on his own, who he created, placed in the Garden, created the enemy, made us subject to vanity (romans 8:20), and proclaims YOU CANNOT COME TO THE SON UNLESS you are drawn… I mean why? Why would anyone think God is going to fall short? That everything he made is some cosmic mistake… No, Our God is in control. And that is why I do not think less of anyone who believes differently, who does horribly, or who condemns because they worship a god who condemns…. The truth is, ALL WILL COME TO THE TRUTH this GOD PURPOSED and will bring to pass, and NO ONE CAN LOSE!

But we all will reap what we sow, and this is how God teaches his children to stop touching the hot stove.

You know I love you(awesome persomn whose name I will not name :)), I really wanted to give you a heartfelt response and say I AGREE YOU CANNOT RECIEVE without BELIEVING, but I have faith that ALL WILL BELIEVE, not just because it is clearly written… The only thing destroyed is “hell, devil, anti-christ, false prophet, and every name (which translates directly into NATURE – NOT A LITERAL NAME) but every NATURE that is NOT written in the BOOK OF LIFE (Life has many natures, love, forgiveness, patience, charity, peace, joy, etc. ect) but the NATURES IN MAN that are NOT WRITTEN IN LIFE (CHRIST) will be destroyed… The natures of GREED, HATE, BIAS, CONDEMNATION, etc etc…

And remember GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE (LAKE OF FIRE) – Christ baptises with FIRE…. FIRE is good, we ALL have out part in THIS LAKE OF FIRE, it just doesn’t hurt those that ARE RISEN TO KNOW, GOD IS IN COMPLETE CONTROL!

GREAT TOPIC!!!! I sure hope my answer will not be seen as something negative, but an honest heartfelt answer as to why I believe, GOD WILL HAVE ALL MEN TO BE SAVED, ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT KNOW IT (1st Tim 4:10) Jacob 🙂

— AN ADDITION

There has been a great discussion on my friend’s page. A couple of points were made, and I was asked by my friend to respond. Without posting there comments (as my answers pretty much sum up what they wrote) I wanted to add it here for those interested. Enjoy.

HERE IS MY REPLY:

Wow, what an outpouring, and in such a loving way! It’s rare to see such a thing, that says a lot about you Gaye and the company that is drawn to you… It would be very hard for me to answer everyone, I will say, without posting the address, I do have a blog with over 90 essays, videos extra, that I have (if you friend me, or simply google my name and blog) you’ll find it… I think every single concern is answered in many of those essays… But I will answer a few people briefly…

@(PERSON 1) I in no way minimize God’s judgment, quite the opposite, I made it very clear, we all reap what we sow… I simply say, we don’t reap MORE than we sow, and that in God’s CORRECTION (which hurts indeed) we are brought to the knowledge of Christ. Many Christians preach that life is supposed to be filled with candy, that God doesn’t want anyone sick, doesn’t want bad things to happen… Yet, that undermines the very judgment you speak of. God is in control of all things, and it is through MUCH TRIBULATION we enter the Kingdom. believe me when i say, YOU HAVE TO PICK UP YOUR CROSS it is the only way, many “christians” don’t even understand what this means, and preach against it, tickling people’s ears, filling people with religious pride that They did something good so they are saved, and others are beneath them because they did not… But when you understand that God is in control of everything, and it rains on the just and unjust, and that even as the scripture’s state, “the wicked are God’s sword” – that even bad people in our lives, like Pharoah, or Joseph’s brothers, are there to further us into the Kingdom, then you REST in God. You understand what is happening to you IS HAPPENING FOR YOU, and that is judgment. Judgment means to SEPERATE God from the World, this is the allegory of the sheep and goats, wheat and tares, the TRUTH in us and the LIES in us, the NATURES IN US, is what is being Judged… and JUDGEMENT BEGINS IN US, “the house of the lord” – we are all being judged, and we all, I believe and hope and pray, (because like I said, I am NOT the authority and always leave the possibilty that I could be wrong) but I believe with all my heart, God is capable of doing what he says he wants, and that through ONE MAN’S DEATH (ADAM) – all Mankind died (became ignorant) and HOW MUCH MORE, buy ONE MAN’S SACRAFICE AND LIFE shall ALL BE MADE ALIVE… So I take pretty much everything literally and allegorically.

For this next person, I wanted to share their comment to me, and then my response:

PERSON 2:
I was reading a scripture the other day in Revelation about how God will send the angels to come and some will be thrown into the lake of fire and some not. So it is clear that there will be a separation. I’ll try to find and post it on here…. Matthew 13:47-50 (Amplified Bible) Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a [a]dragnet which was cast into the sea and gathered in fish of every sort. When it was full, men dragged it up on the beach, and sat down and sorted out the good fish… into baskets, but the worthless ones they threw away.So it will be at the close and consummation of the age. The angels will go forth and separate the wicked from the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with God) And cast them [the wicked] into the furnace of fire; there will be weeping and wailing and grinding of teeth

HERE IS MY RESPONSE:

@ (PERSON 2) it’s interesting you use a literal parable to describe something as literal, I’m sorry I didn’t mean to not answer you, I just saw your comment now. – First off, THE SEA is a symbol of THE WAYS OF THE WORLD (Cares of the world) Which… is death. This is why JESUS walked above the sea, and could calm the storm… He said I will make you fishers of men, meaning we will literally fish people out of the death and depths of their ignorance… now the Kingdom of God is WITHIN us, in this parable it is described as a net… and the Kingdom of God is RIGHTEOUS, PEACE AND TRUTH, AND POWER in the Holy Ghost… And this seperate the GOOD (Truth) in US with the Bad (Lies) in US.

Now before the scripture you mentioned, remember Jesus compares the Kingdom to many other things. THE MOST IMPORTANT of which I believe is to a PEARL OF GREAT PRICE (pearl comes out of long suffering) – which — Pay attention to this next line, “when one finds THEY SELL ALL THEY POSSESS to have it” – In other words, when you understand the TRUTH OF GOD (Kingdom of God) you get rid of every false belief you once held… We cannot serve two masters. But let’s look at the scripture you posted.

47Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

48Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

49So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

50And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

First of all, GOD TRIES US ALL in the FURNACE OF FIRE… this is how we are set free of our idolatry.

Isaiah 48:10
Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the FURNACE OF AFFLICTION.

(Through this tribulation we LONG SUFFER to find that PEARL (KINGDOM OF GOD which is WITHIN US, not coming with observation)

This is the way GOD CHOSE to seperate us from the lies of the world, and YES when we are afflicted we weep and complain (gnash teeth)

James 4:9
Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.

Now the END OF THE WORLD, doesn’t mean the LITERAL WORLD… But the world is THE LUSTS IN MAN…

1 John 2:16
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

So at the END OF OUR LUSTS, the TRUE MESSAGE (angel=message/messengers (literal translation) – At the END OF OUR LUSTS the TRUE MESSAGE OF GOD will come forth (be revealed) — and guess what, the DAY OF THE LORD is scary… It is a day of darkness, where you understand you don’t know a thing, and every foundational belief you once held is shaken… SO YES, when the TRUTH OF GOD is revealed to you, you will SUFFER until you GET RID OF EVERY FALSE BELIEF you once held.

Remember, we are held over the hottest part of the flame, as silver is, and we are only released for it, when the SMITH sees HIS IMAGE clearly in it.

So in any event, when you really take the scriptures and search the other scriptures for witness of the words, like Furnace, Fire, etc… it becomes a lot easier to see the Truth of God, which is Salvation of all, through so great a plan, that the ONLY ONE LOST is the SON OF PERDITION (the adamic ignorant carnal antichrist nature in man)…

In any event, I hope this adequeatley explained that scripture for you. Peace. Jacob

Thank you all so much for being so supportive and loving and understanding we are all where we are, and if we be teachers we MUST BE long suffering, meak, gentle, loving, not seeking to strive, etc… And so far so good. Much love to you all, peace Jacob

AND SOME MORE

—- Here is some more response from comments made: This one focuses on Rev 20:15, where it says, depending on the translation that Every name not written in the book of life is cast into the Lake of Fire… First my response to what the word Name – really means.

“ONOMA” is indeed the correct greek word for Name which means “the name is used for everything which the name covers, everything the thought or feeling of which is aroused in the mind by mentioning, hearing, remembering, the name, ex. for one’s rank, authority, interests, pleasure, command, excellences, deeds etc. ” — It is the total NATURE of that PERSON … of course we say, Jesus and if we look at it literally, there are a lot of Jesus’s out there, but they all have different characteristics… So instead of believing in the name, we believe in the nature of that name… EVERYTHING the name covers…

Look at how dictionary.com translates NATURE when it applies to PEOPLE… reality, as distinguished from any effect of art: a portrait true to nature. 8. the particular combination of qualities belonging to a person, animal, thing, or class by birth, origin, or constitution; native or inherent character: human nature. 9. the instincts or inherent tendencies directing conduct: a man of good nature. 10. character, kind, or sort: two books of the same nature. 11. characteristic disposition; temperament: a self-willed nature; an evil nature.

So even with Onoma we are talking about the NATURE of the PERFECT MAN CHRIST. Or the NATURE of the ADAMIC man.

Like you said, we’re on the same page. And I don’t get to caught up which bible is perfect or not, they all have mistranslations, additions, deletions… which is why the spirit of revelation comes in handy. 🙂

— Now here is a complete breakdown of Rev 20:15

Revelation 20:15 Anyone whose NAME was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire. (Some translations leave the “Name” part out) This I grabbed from the NIV…

But a GREATER MYSTERY is revealed when… you translate each of those words from the Greek.

15And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

WHOSOEVER translates from the Greek into (whatever/whoever)

NOT means Pretty much NOT

BUT FOUND: wow, when you translate FOUND… it opens your eyes. It doesn’t mean, found, like you find a chapter and verse in a book… It means:

FOUND= to come upon, hit upon, to meet with
after searching, to find a thing sought without previous search, to find (by chance), to fall in with those who come or return to a place
to find by enquiry, thought, examination, scrutiny, observation, to find out by practice and experience to see, learn, discover, understand

FOUND, basically means, the person sought and found – It is the REVELATION of CHRIST.

WRITTEN: means TO DESCRIBE, or EXPRESS, OR WRITE

BOOK: Translates into SCROLL (which we are meant to eat, which many saw in visions)

LIFE (ZOE) one of my favorites, means TO BE ALIVE, to live, breathe, be among the living

CAST means: to throw or let go of a thing without caring where it falls

INTO means: INTO

LAKE means: a harbour, haven

FIRE means: FIRE (God is a consuming FIRE)

Now watch what happens when you put them all together.

“Whoever or whatever did not find after searching the expression of LIFE (christ) is let go without worrying where it falls into a haven of God’s consuming fire!”

And the very next verse, after this is Rev 21:

1And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

Like you said Christine, it is the FIRST NATURE OF MAN (adam) that is LET GO OFF, And burned (to keep with the allegorical theme) AWAY.

in adam all die (1st man is last) in christ (2nd man) all are made ALIVE (All find the expression of Christ)

YOU ARE GODS!



YOU ARE GODS!

I am going to start by saying this essay will only make sense to a select few. But for those who can grasp the words I am about to write, I will say, you are a chosen lot, and either stark raving mad, or incredibly blessed, but either way, you will find it is of your own doing, and choosing.

You see a lot of people are living their lives in such a limited way. They believe that they have no control over things. Some believe they can never get away from people who want to hurt them, never meet the right guy or girl, never catch a break, never find health, nothing (They believe) works out for them. And so they are always hurting and always in despair. And so, because of their belief, they are the complete perfect image of what they believe themselves to be. Isn’t it true? Those that are always sick, and believe they are always sick, are always sick. Those that are always the victim, say they are always the victim, are always the victim. Those that never get ahead are the very same people who believe they can never get ahead. IS THIS A COINCIDENCE? IS IT JUST THE TRUTH? OR… Are they creating the life they are living? Is their belief perpetuating their sorrow?

Mark 11:23
…WHOSOEVER… shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he says.


If you look closer, everything thing you say about your life is true. The people who have such confidence that they can accomplish everything and have no doubt, accomplish what they believe they can accomplish. Those people who believe life will never get better, find that their lives never get better. I know there are people reading this essay right now, that are probably in a bad way. They have terrible trials, and believe they will never get ahead, and they won’t. So long as they believe this, and say this to others.

Romans 10:10
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.


It is lack of faith that destroys us. Our thoughts are like seeds. Whatever seed (thought) we nourish grows. So if we believe we will fail, why would we ever win? If we believe we will never get ahead. How can we ever get ahead. Stop for a moment… Have you ever once considered that WHAT YOU BELIEVE ABOUT YOURSELF AND THE WORLD IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU HAVE CREATED FOR YOURSELF AND THE WORLD?

Colossians 1
15Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:


Many read this passage, and think that this means ONE MAN, Jesus Christ. But they cannot see that…

1 John 4:17
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because AS HE IS, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD.


If the IMAGE of the INVISIBLE GOD makes all things, and all things have been given and put beneath the IMAGE OF GOD. And as it is written, by the IMAGE OF GOD all things were created in Heaven and Earth, visible and invisible, ALL THINGS were created BY THE IMAGE … FOR THE IMAGE. Did you ever stop and think who the IMAGE OF GOD really is?

Genesis 1:26
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.


Whether you can hear this or not, WE (HUMANITY) are the IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD. We are the MANY MEMEMBERED BODY OF GOD’S SON (Child). MALE AND FEMALE God made HIS SON (Children). I know this is hard for many to grasp, because you have been taught that only JESUS is the SON OF GOD. And so Jesus was and Is, but you must also understand SO ARE WE! This is why Jesus is quoted as saying, “Greater things than these shall we do” Jesus was the WORD of God. The LOGIC AND WISDOM of God made flesh (tangible) and WE are the WORD OF GOD, LIVING epistles to be read of all men. There is no difference between us, THIS IS WHAT WE MUST WAKE UP TO. Because, we are creating the HELL or HEAVEN we are living in, whether we know it or not. Because ALL THINGS visible or invisible are made by the IMAGE OF GOD, which we all are. THIS IS THE MYSTERY.

Colossians 1:27
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:


THE WORD CHRIST! Simply means “the annointed one of God” “the annointing of God” – CHRIST is our LIFE, our LIFE IS HID IN CHRIST. Meaning….

1 Corinthians 13:12
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.


Right now, we don’t TRULY KNOW who we are. We only know in part, we only know a little bit. We don’t know the TRUTH of who we are, until that REVELATION comes… Then we shall KNOW as we are KNOWN… Which literally means, we shall know WHO WE REALLY ARE.

Psalm 82:6
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.


Who is the BEGINNING AND THE END? — all of us! Do something for me. Think of what you, I, and everyone else in the world has in common… Everything begins and ends with us. (As it is written, everything begins and ends with the SON (IMAGE)… All any of us can say with absolute certainty is “I AM” — All we know for sure, is WE EXIST! That is a great mystery. But consider, when you close your eyes, does not the world go away. When you open them, does it not return? When you wake up, does not the world appear? When you go to sleep, does not this world go away? When you dream, do you not create new worlds in your sleep?

All any of us can say for sure, is “I am”… I exist. For all we know, everyone around us, is simply a projection from within us. In fact, science even backs this up. Everything going on outside of us, is actually HAPPENING WITHIN US…. We just percieve it to be outside. But everything is taking place within the MIND. At the place of the SKULL (where the TRUTH of who we are was put to death) – But I am getting ahead of myself.

At this point in time, we are lost. We don’t know the TRUTH yet. And so we suffer a great deal. We suffer because we don’t know OUR TRUE LIFE, OUR PURPOSE, we don’t know WHO WE ARE!

Romans 8:18
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.


But even our present suffering aren’t worthy to be compared, to what will come out of them. FOR ANY NIGHTMARE to stop, it must get so bad that the individual wakes from it. The same is true for our waking life, until we realize we have been creating a life of misery for ourselves, until we realize that whatever we sow (think, speak, or do) is what we shall reap, we will continue to suffer. BUT WHEN WE WAKE UP TO THE TRUTH OF WHO WE ARE, and see the limitless possibilities that we can create, because ALL AUTHORITY was given into our hands, THEN WE WILL BE FREE!

1 John 5:20
And we know that the Son of God is come (revealed), and hath given us an understanding, that WE may know (BECOME ONE WITH) him that is true, and WE ARE IN HIM that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life


Think about it, WE ARE IN CHRIST, CHRIST IS IN US. – For something to be both in something and that something to be in what is in it, that means, it is entirely that which is IN and OUT. In other words, ALL THERE IS IS GOD, and we (humanity) are HIS SON (CHILD). We are a corporate body, all of us, we are all the same, and yet different. We are ALL ONE, but we believe we are seperate. “It is not good for man to be alone” – This is why, the soul was created. So the ONE could become the MANY IN THE ONE, and the ONE IN THE MANY.

Look, I know this may be too deep for many of you. But think for a moment about what the meaning of LIFE REALLY IS.

What if? You were in control of your life. As scripture states, “everything was made by the son for the son through the son” and if we ARE that SON (corporate body of Christ) – Adam (Humanity in Ignorance) Christ (Humanity Enlightened) – that perhaps we are collectively creating this world, by what we believe about ourselves and others.

Imagine for a moment, that you, and everyone here, is GOD’s CHILD… and if a CHILD OF GOD, then a god, as well. Capable of doing all that God the FATHER has done. What if, that is what is happening here. That where once there was ONE, GOD said, it is not good for MANKIND to be alone, so we (elohim) gave each of us an individual soul, identity, and in so doing, we entered human form and DIED.

To be carnally minded is DEATH

We are in the valley of the shadow of DEATH, right now. Because physically, we are all approaching physical death. But spiritually we are also dead, because we became IGNORANT the moment we entered human form. We FORGOT that we are GOD’S CHILD, that YE ARE GOD’S AND ALL OF US CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH. This is why we MUST REMEMBER!

John 14:26
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.


What is we forgot who we were, because we created a new reality the instant we starting thinking about what is right and what is wrong. What is good and evil. What if all of the suffering in the world, the violence, the terrible deeds, we all collectively created, so we would wake up and understand compassion, love, and truth, instead of hate, prejudice, and greed?

What if we placed God far from us in our imagination, as opposed to remembering that we are in God, and God is in Us, and we are actually one, and we began to dwell in this world, that we believe is the only reality.

But think about it…. This reality, is it NOT OF OUR MAKING? Have we not created the good and the bad? The war and the peace? Is this world, not under our complete authority? Are we not in control? Can’t we collectively say, NO ONE SHALL STARVE, AND IF WE SAY THIS WILL ANYONE EVER AGAIN STARVE?… ARE WE NOT OUR BROTHERS KEEPER?

IS THIS WORLD NOT A PRISON OF OUR OWN MAKING? Are we not in HELL? Yes, we are, it is the grave, because the LIFE which is CHRIST, died the INSTANT we forgot we are CHRIST. We forgot the WAY to the FATHER, is by BEING THE WAY (ONE SPIRIT that is IN US ALL, and IS AUS ALL) WAS THROUGH THE SON. (US)

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.


Now many, believe this passage means. You cannot come to God, unless you believe in a man from two thousand years ago. But I say to you, you CANNOT know God unless you BECOME THAT SON OF GOD yourself. You cannot KNOW GOD until you understand, YOU ARE THE WAY, YOU ARE THE LIGHT. There was a time you knew Jesus after the flesh, but NO LONGER.

In other words, the ONLY WAY to GOD, is THROUGH US. No one can know God except through the SON, who is ONE with God, and can only do what GOD TELLS HIM TO DO, say what God tells him to say, because they are ONE. And if they are one than they are not divided. And if they are not divided then they are the same. And if the same, then both ARE IN CONTROL OF CREATING.

God said, LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE
Man says, Let’s get our groove on and MAKE A CHILD in OUR IMAGE

Do you see? Can you see?

Whatever is bound in heaven is bound in earth.
Whatever you believe YOU CANNOT DO, YOU WILL NOT DO!

Whatever is loosed in heaven is loosed in earth.
Whatever you believe you can create from the inside out, you will CREATE!

This is probably one of the most confusing and most important papers I have ever written. But it is TIME to ARISE out of our sleep, and understand who we are, and what we are capable of.

Now, look, I’m not SAYING you can walk on literal walk, or perform great and mighty miracles like turning a walking stick into Moses’s snake… that is all allegory.

Everything that we create, MUST be done in the paremeters of what we collectively have agreed this earth to be, governed by certain laws like gravity, etc. BUT, and this is a BIG BUT! We can do ALL THINGS WITHIN these parameters. In other words, if we believe certain things will happen, it will ALWAYS SEEM as a strange and a peculiar coincidence, because it HAD to happen in ways you can wrap your mind around. CHANCE, COINCIDENCE, RIGHT TIME, RIGHT PLACE… These things we believe happen. And so it is by our BELIEF in these things, that these things happen. You see, you don’t need to worry about HOW things will manifest in your life. You just need to BELIEVE THEY WILL, and they WILL. It has to go along with the natural order of what we believe this place to be.

This is why so many marriages fall apart, for so many years we have been force fed lies, and condemnation, that for years all we have collectively created for ourselves this hell. But when two or three are gathered in one accord, when you and your husband or wife, believe you marriage will be blessed, then you will both act as if it is, and it will BECOME! United you both have to BELIEVE your marriage can work for it to work! And if you both do this, the greater your marriage will be. This simple example, is what we need to put into practice with every area of our lives. We MUST understand that we are CREATING OUR PAIN and our PEACE. WE ARE THE ONES AT THE HELM, because there is ONLY ONE SPIRIT.

Ephesians 4
3Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.


This is the GREAT MYSTERY that has been hidden from our lives. We are ALL THE ONE, and the ONE IS ALL. This is why Ephesians 4 states we MUST ENDEAVOUR to keep the UNITY OF THE SPIRIT in the BOND OF PEACE. Because we are ALL ONE, in Christ, In God! So whatever we believe, we create!

Matthew 17:20
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.


Many of you have probably thought you were very intuitive at times in your life, when things happen, and you say “I knew that would happen” – Have you ever once considered, you had absolute faith that would happen, and that is what happened? Have you ever thought, that perhaps YOU ARE IN CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE?

Ephesians 1
21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.


You see we are ALL CHRIST, and when we understand we are CHRIST, that EVERYTHING IS PUT BENEATH OUR FEET (Our belief and testimony and witness) – Blessed are the FEET of those that bring the Gospel. (the Good news of who we all are).

Now, you may say, I have heard this before… This is like the SECRET! Well, you couldn’t be farther from the truth. You see you cannot change the WILL of another, only GOD in them can do that. So while you want to create harmony at your work place, you must realize that others are also creating. This is why, many times you imagine things will happen, and they do, but it happens a bit differently than you imagined. You see you MUST NOT CREATE out of SELFISH NEEDS OR GAIN. You MUST create for the greater good. You must think GOOD THOUGHTS, not terrible ones. It is the only path to salvation for yourself and the world. You MUST completely submit yourself to GOD WITHIN… Meaning you MUST UNDERSTAND, it is no longer YOU that LIVE but CHRIST, and CHRIST only does what the FATHER DOES. And so, as one of our children grow up to become a father as well, so too, we the child become the Father as well.

1 Corinthians 15:28
And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.


So first we must understand, that we are the SON. That is the only way to the FATHER. And we must understand that everything is created by the SON, for the SON (us) and whatever we SOW we REAP. If we create suffering we will reap suffering, if we judge a person to be terrible THEY WILL BE TERRIBLE. This is why we are told to pray for our enemies and ONLY THINK ON GOOD THINGS!

Like I said, this is not The SECRET, or some other new age nonsence teaching… this is the truth, when you begin to live your life for others, and see others as yourself (For in fact that is who they are) then you begin to create a masterpiece of a life. You can do and become anything you want, so long as it helps spiritually evolve the whole.

Because we are ONE and so we must be out for EVERYONE. You can’t live a perfect healthy life, if you allow a gangraneous toe to get worse in its situation. You HAVE to take care of the part of your body that is ill, for you to finally live a perfect healthy life. So what does this mean? It means what Paul said.

1 Thessalonians 4:15
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming (revealing) of the Lord shall not precede them which are asleep.


We can’t be wealthy at the expense of someone being poor. This is not resurrection, this is merely something we will have to deal with in the next life. We must learn to LOVE OTHERS as we LOVE OURSELF. Because EVERYONE is indeed a reflection of ourself. We can change things, with Faith ALL things are possible. We must understand who we are, and why it is so important to understand this.

We are all ONE, and the ONE is God.

Romans 11:36
For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.


So create your life differently, a kingdom DIVIDED cannot stand. And right now this world is SO DIVIDED that the entire world has fallen. We MUST realize who we are IN GOD, WE ARE THE IMAGE OF GOD. CHRIST IS OUR LIFE.

If we believe most people are out for themselves, will we ever see a world where everyone is out for others?
If we believe there can never be peace in the world, could we ever see peace in the world?

HOWEVER!

If we wanted to help others and believe others wanted to help others, would it not be possible that since we collectively agree it is better to love than hate, share than steal, help than hurt, that we would indeed live in a peaceful, thriving world, where no one worries again?

First everyone must believe this about themselves and others, and then others would have to do the same, and you see, it would only follow that everyone could change this world in ONE MOMENT.

What if your lack of faith in the goodness of others, is the reason their is so liitle goodness in others?

What if your lack of faith in people paying you what you are worth, or honoring you for being you, what if your lack of belief that you can change the world, is keeping you from everything you believe YOU COULD NEVER BE!

BUT WHAT IF YOU DID BELIEVE?

What if everyone reading this essay, began to understand that from the moment they stopped reading this essay they could, as an artist applies paint to the canvas, begin to create their lives in the direction they want to create it… But here is the twist, since we are ALL ONE, and ONE is THE ALL, we cannot DENY OURSELVES… So even if there are some that do not believe, OUR FAITH can help them. OUR LOVE CAN DRAW A MULTITUDE TO CHANGE!

2 Timothy 2:13
If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.


So UNDERSTAND your dreams can never be completely fulfilled or created unless your desires are for the good of collective, the ONE, US, God’s SON (Humanity) – Who, I will remind you, was given complete rule and dominion, to create, to name, to live, to do as we list.

Romans 13:11
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.


We still have so much to reap that we have already sown. So if you begin to think on these things “Peace, hope, charity, etc” and you still find difficulty and pain, it is merely because you have been creating the bed you have been lying in, and there may still be some thorns to get through. But IF from this MOMENT! You begin to take captive your thoughts, and BELIEVE that ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! And you begin to LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR as yourself, if you continue to do this, than you will see YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE. The DESIRES OF YOUR HEART were given to you by God, and the only thing stopping you from reaching your desires is the thought that it is impossible. BUT FOR THOSE WITH FAITH NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!

Psalms 82
6I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
7But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
8Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.

If you can hear this, and you begin to judge properly (decide what should be and what should not be) you will inherit everything, for EVERYTHING IS YOURS TO BEGIN WITH! So create, believe, love, and above all else, LOVE GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART! BECAUSE GOD IS YOUR HEART!

“the truth will change you”

WAKE UP, CHRIST!

The only path to freedom is one walked without the chains of ignorance binding you. We are not to be unequally yolked with unbelievers. That does not mean we shouldn’t marry people that don’t know Christ, as some have said. What it means is we should not allow the religious law, which produces death, and those who use the bible to condemn instead of uplift, to YOLK us, (shackle us, bind us, make us a slave to their man made laws and traditions)…

The religious leaders of the world have hurt so many, it is time to embrace love, forgiveness, and see these men and women for what they are. Remember, even they have their purpose, so we must not condemn them for their ignorance. God has blinded and hardened those so that his glory and power will be made known.

God makes everything beautiful in ITS time, and he has a purpose for them, and they too will come to the knowledge of the truth. (see my article: the prodigal)… So Love Them, But Don’t Be Dragged Down By Them, Let God Drag You And Be Happy He IS!

In any event, enjoy “AWAKE”

ARE WE CHRIST?


ARE WE CHRIST?

Now I wasn’t planning to write an essay for awhile, but on my recent trip I couldn’t help but feel like a stranger in a strange land. So many wonderful people surrounding me, yet so very few that I was inspired to speak to about higher things. But what would a Sunday for me at home be without rolling up my sleeves and tackling another majorly controversial (howbeit true) topic. Hope the title got your attention, because there is more attention that will come, I pray.

On my recent trip I asked many “christians” who go to church, work for their church, attend bible study, etc, etc, just what they are saved from? And what is Salvation? And sadly, not one had a good answer to give. Truly many don’t understand salvation, in regards to the HERE AND NOW. Which is what salvation is.

Luke 19:9 And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.

You are NOT saved from some future terrible torture, (see my article “To Hell with Hell.” NO! You are saved from the life you are living, you are saved from Yourself/hell. Your Ego and all the bells and whistles of pain and suffering that goes along with it. Now the question many will ask, is why haven’t these people found the TRUTH of God. (Christ) – More to the point, what is the Truth? And why haven’t they found it.

Well there is a great story in scripture that spells it out. (They are looking in the wrong place) You see, so many who are SEEKING JESUS among their Kinsfolk (friends, congregations, bible studies etc.)

Luke 2:44 But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day’s journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.

And yet, when they REALLY wanted to find the WAY and the TRUTH, it wasn’t there.

45And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.

You will NEVER find the truth among your friends, family, congregations, etc… you will NOT find the TRUTH until you TURN BACK AGAIN toward JERUSALEM which is HEBREW means “TEACHING OF PEACE” – You cannot and WILL NOT find the TRUTH OF WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST, at your religious halls, in your bible studies, mosques, or man made temple’s… You will NOT find the TRUTH there at all. You will need to RETURN to the TEACHING OF PEACE, and go WITHIN (the Temple = YOUR HEART) to find Christ.

Luke 2:46 And it came to pass, that after THREE days they found him in the TEMPLE, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.

There we see that number THREE again (Tri-Mester) A period of time before the child (CHRIST) is born IN YOU, from you. – This is the sign of Jonah, three days in the BELLY (WOMB) of the earth (MAN’S SOUL)… Just like all of that, after THREE DAYS Joseph and Mary FIND CHRIST. And where do they find Christ? (Their Child)

Isaiah 9:6 – For unto us a child is born,

We find this CHILD (CHRIST) their JESUS in the TEMPLE of God (Which is us).

Many may wonder why we, and they, couldn’t find the TRUTH (Christ) among their Kinfolk, in their churches and Temple’s and Mosque’s or Kingdom Halls, etc… Well, the reason is God’s ways are above man’s and you will never FIND the TRUTH among other men and women.

BECAUSE Christ is ALWAYS about HIS FATHER’S BUSINESS.

Luke 2:48,49 48And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. 49And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?

Like Mary and Joseph, many “religious” folk. Will not understand why they couldn’t find the TRUTH in the high places of Mankind like Religion. So many cry out in their man made Churches, seeking Christ, begging for Christ, and yet they cannot find Christ. The reason is you will never FIND THE LIVING AMONG THE DEAD!

THE religious world is NOT about God’s business they are about church business, and for many, business it is booming! However, when you leave all that mess and return to Jerusalem (the teaching of Peace) you will find Christ, IN THE TEMPLE (Within You) – “the hope of Glory which is Christ In You” and you will learn, the reason you could NOT find Christ in those religious circles is because Christ is ALWAYS about the FATHER’S BUSINESS.

And what is the FATHER’S BUSINESS you ask? – Well God is in the IMAGE MAKING business, getting us to lay down our (carnal life in Adam) so we can take our TRUE LIFE back up.

John 10:18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

God’s will is for ALL MANKIND to be SAVED. And nothing stops God’s will. This is the FATHER’S business.

Ephesians 1:8-10 8Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; 9Having made known unto us the MYSTERY OF HIS WILL, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one ALL things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

He is going to gather everything TOGETHER in HIS TRUTH and SPIRIT(Christ) we will ALL come to full stature of the perfect man. And nothing can stop the Father’s WILL.

Ephesians 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

Now I know what many of you are thinking… WE HAVE CHOICE! And I am NOT going to say we don’t. But I will say, that OUR choices will ALWAYS bring us back to God’s will come HELL or HEAVEN! This is what Reaping and Sowing is all about. When you follow the shepherd (Christ) our journey is pleasant, if we fall of path that sheepdog (Satan) will bite our rear ends and put us back in line.

And if we fall off the path enough times, the Shepherd may even break our leg and carry us for awhile, until we learn never to do it again. You see God works ALL things according to his plan and purpose, our CREATOR is IN CONTROL and this should give us hope. It takes the pressure is OFF US, we are no longer under the law of works but the grace of FAITH. And with FAITH we CANNOT FAIL. Because out of all the FATHER GAVE THE SON TO SAVE, the CHRIST INSIDE US ALL, has LOST NOT ONE!

2 Timothy 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

It has nothing to do with our works but God’s purpose and will, which is the ONLY THING CHRIST IS ABOUT! Bringing us all to that PLACE (the Kingdom of God) = Righteousness, Peace, and Joy, and power in the Holy Ghost. Ultimately, God is bringing us all to the same place, CHRIST (Beccoming his ANNOINTED ONE, his ONLY BEGOTTEN). Not a birth of Flesh and Blood from of SPIRIT.

John 1
13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

You see there is ONLY ONE SPIRIT, BAPTISM, LORD, AND GOD. ONE, not several as so many believe. Where many of us see Bob, Helen, Charlotte, and Larry, God only see’s CHRIST – his finished CREATION, WHICH despite what many religious leaders state, will be finished in VICTORY! “ALL OF CREATION WILL SING GOD’S PRAISES”

There is ONLY ONE IMAGE OF GOD. Humanity! “LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE!” – “Christ the express IMAGE OF GOD.”

Oh yes, we are either DEAD (ignorant) in ADAM or ALIVE (Enlightened) in CHRIST. We too are both, the 1st and the LAST.

1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The FIRST man Adam was made a living soul; the LAST Adam was made a quickening spirit.

The first MAN is a living SOUL (Jacob) the last MAN is a QUICKENING SPIRIT (CHRIST). You see when Jesus said, I am the First and the Last, he understood, he was both ADAM and JESUS.

I also, am the FIRST and the LAST, you are as well. We ALL are the FIRST AND THE LAST.

There is ONLY ONE SON of God (Israel). The first STATE of that ONE MAN is DEAD and the second state is ALIVE.

Revelation 2:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

I know this is a hard saying for many of you. You don’t see Jesus as being Adam as well, MUCH LESS as seeing JESUS AS YOURSELF… 🙂

But CLEARLY, Jesus was DEAD and is ALIVE. And, CLEARLY, this is our story as well. We are no different. For…

1 Corinthians 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

We have to stop looking at this Jesus character from thousands of years ago as the SAVIOR of the WORLD, and stop putting our faith in a MAN from thousands of years ago who died, who was but a PATTERN for us…

1 Timothy 1:16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a PATTERN to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

We have to STOP putting our faith in PAST EVENTS. As what is behind us, does NOT PROFIT US.

Philippians 3:13
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

It’s time to FORGET what is BEHIND US, and REACH for what is before us, ETERNAL LIFE (Knowing God the Father and CHRIST IN US)

We MUST put our FAITH in the SON OF GOD within, that DIED for us (So we could become Jacob, Bob, Helen, and Ruth) and now we die to our EGO’S so CHRIST (Our true Identity) can live. And NOTHING can seperate us from becoming CHRIST. – Don’t misunderstand me, God does the work however, we simply go along for the ride. 🙂 If we are IN HIS REST. And like I said, NOTHING shall prevent God’s will (to have all be saved)

Romans 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Now I know many of you do not want to believe, that you TOO are the SON/DAUGHTER of God, the ONLY BEGOTTEN of God. However, to believe that you are NOT THE ONLY BEGOTTEN OF GOD is to DENY the TRUTH/GOD. So if people seeing and talking with you, and you are RISEN in CHRIST, they they are actually talking to and seeing Christ.

Matthew 10:40
He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

This is why we should not DENY this great mystery which has been hidden. CHRIST IN YOU, AS YOU, IS YOU. Instead, DENY who you THINK YOU ARE.

Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

My Friend Larry (Uriah) and I had a nice talk about what it means to DENY yourself. For many years, many have believed this meant to DEPRIVE yourself, but that is NOT WHAT THE WORD DENY means.

The definition of the word DENY is as follows: “to declare untrue” When we are told to DENY our “SELF” we are actually being told, to DENY that “who we think we are” actually exists.

DENY your EGO, it isn’t real. IT IS UNTRUE.

After we do this then we TAKE UP THE CROSS (we move from IGNORANCE TO ENLIGHTENMENT/LIFE) So if we DENY (declare untrue) OURSELVES/HELL, then all that is left is CHRIST. (God’s son) OUR TRUE LIFE.

Colossians 3:4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

The word APPEAR is translated from the Hebrew as this: to make manifest or visible or known what has been hidden or unknown, to manifest, whether by words, or deeds, or in any other way

Now why must we believe that we are CHRIST? … And Members in particular? Because if you are NOT THE SON/DAUGHTER than you cannot know God. And you cannot be SAVED! Now does God see us this way? Well YES, God does.

2 Corinthians 2:15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:

But if you were to tell another human being. That in fact they ARE JESUS CHRIST, meaning, they are NO DIFFERENT, than Christ. They would flip out, but the truth is, IF THEY DO NOT BELIEVE THAT CHRIST IS REVEALED IN THEM/US, than they are ANTI-CHRIST (opposite the truth) – They haven’t DENIED themselves.

1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come (revealed/manifested) in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

On my trip, I was very sad to see so few OF MY PEERS who desired to know God and the mysteries of the Kingdom. Everyone was so consumed with the bump and grind of the cares of the world that they hadn’t even bothered to take the time, to think of those things which TRULY MATTER.

There was a time when I was younger in my faith when I would witness to everyone, I didn’t care what any thought OF WHAT I SAID, and like Moses I was killing the Egyptians left and right. I too shared things with people that just weren’t ready. I was carnally doing what God was preparing to be spiritually done. It is true that God has perfected praise in the young (immature to their faith), but they are still babes and as excited as they are to share the deeper things of God, they must first mature to understand it. And they must have those growing pains, and man do they hurt.

We forget it is through much tribulation that we enter the kingdom of God, we forget, like the man Jesus we must take up our Cross (death to self) to enter into life. We must come to the place that PAUL came, DENYING PAUL… where he said. “It is no LONGER I PAUL that LIVE, but Christ.”

Now I want to be clear, there is Only One way to enter. Those who enter the sheep gate, the same become the shephard of the sheep. (Christ) No one knows the Father but the Son. So in order to know God you must be the Son (Gods only begotten).

Now when I share Who we really are, most people freak out. They refuse it. They will not accept the truth of who they are, because that Truth is in a far away country. Out of sight (understanding) out of mind. And when this truth is presented it is met with anger, hate, betrayal, and worse. Because the Anti Christ (your Ego) believes he or she really exists.

Revelation 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names (Natures/greed/lust/pride/etc) were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Our EGO is that BEAST. Ecclesiates calls men BRUTE BEASTS. the Beasts’ number is 666, the NUMBER OF MAN. You see, who you think you are, exists and yet doesn’t EXIST. It is simply who you THINK you are. It will only exist as long as you don’t DENY it’s very existence, which is a LIE to begin with.

Cane Killed Abel. This CARNAL nature IN us, wants to be REAL, and it will put down the TRUTH, but that is for but a moment. The first man, (which we all are, as well as the last) is always a KILLER. You’ll notice the first born in scripture Adam, Cane, Ishmael, Esau, etc, alway deal in death. They are hunters, seeking whom they may kill and then devour.

However, the second nature of man, the second born, Christ, Abel, isaac, Jacob who becomes Israel is Always a shephard. In the first ignorant nature of mankind there is death, this death is lived out in the external and temporal things of the world. But the second Goes Within. It’s life is found inside MANKIND. Their true LIFE is in fact CHRIST. I know for many, this still may be hard to believe but let us take a look at Gal 3 and 4.

Gal 3 28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

You see, there is no more Jacob, Tim, Joanne, and Bertha… there is only ABRAHAMS SEED. Now, we see many, but scripture clearly states, there is but ONE SEED.

16Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is CHRIST.

Easy to see, that ABRAHAMS SEED is CHRIST. Now watch this… let’s read on a bit and see what this says about you and me and everyone else in the world.

29And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Now if you be CHRIST’S than you are ABRAHAMS’ SEED (christ). Here let me put this plainly, if CHRIST is REVEALED to you, within you, than you ARE CHRIST. No ifs ands or buts about it. Yeah, try sharing that if you are Catholic, Lutheran, or in any other church… This is the MESSIAH the JEWS were waiting for… IMMANUEL – GOD WITH/IN/AS YOU.

Now, don’t try and go and carnally tell the world you are Jesus, because that is NOT the TRUTH. You need to DENY who you THINK YOU ARE, die to your SELF, and CHRIST will THEN BE REVEALED. When you realize that your EGO NATURE (WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE) is actaully the SON OF PERDITION, that WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE, is actually the ANTICHRIST sitting on the THRONE OF GOD (YOUR MIND AND HEART) – then AND only then, can the TRUTH be REVEALED about who you REALLY ARE IN CHRIST, and it will destroy WHO YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE, and then my friends, you will know what it means to be saved! And to be a SON/DAUGHTER.

Now, to finish this essay off right, I want to show you how sharing this revelation can be met in not the nicest of ways –

John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

You see NO ONE is going to HEAVEN (ENLIGHTENMENT) but the ONE who CAME DOWN… There is only ONE (humanity) – We are the SON OF MAN and the SON OF GOD…. WE ARE. We are as the Prophet Obediah said, the SAVIORS OF THE WORLD.

Obediah 1 21And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’s.

So what Jacob? Are you saying we are ALL CHRIST? — Well if you are the body of Christ. You are given the name of Christ. And you have the Mind of Christ…. Who are you?

Now I understand this is a hard saying, but I want to show you in scripture how (there is nothing new under the sun) and since they rejected Jesus for saying he is the Son of God, many will reject you for saying the same. But be of good courage, for as CHRIST in YOU has overcome the world (carnal mind and it’s lusts) so shall we all. So when listening to Luke 22 some things shot out at me…. I began to see that this chapter, like so many chapters spoke more about me, than it did about some people who have long been dead and buried.

Scripture is better applied to our lives today as sons and daughters of God, and as a united people who have finally come out of the darkness and shouted into the light the Hope of Glory. So let’s start shall we?

Luke 22
1Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.

Leaven is used to Puff something up, since we are the Bread/body of Christ this takes on a whole new meaning. We are told a little leaven, leavens the whole lump, and to beware the Leaven (lies/pride) of the Pharasees. So here we are entering into a day where the body of believers will no longer be filled with these lies. It is called the Passover because “death” is passing over us. During this season we will no longer be ruled by the carnal leaven of religion. But this is a season that is still to come for some. And a scary day this will be for the religious leaders of the land.

2And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.

When the truth of who we are (CHRIST) is revealed, it threatens the religious system that is in place. People today are hungrier now to experience God and to know the Truth than I can remember. And when the winds (doctrines) change from being filled with leaven/lies/vanity/pride to humility and love, the religious leaders will be scared that they may lose their bank roll and so-called ministry, because at the Passover no one goes to temple, each man is to sacrafice and worship in His own house.

Now if word got out that mankind didn’t need religion, and that each would be enlightened to the truth of who they are without any effort on their behalf, we would say buh bye Babylon and hello Kingdom.

3Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot(meaning great man or masculine – Man of Kerioth), being of the number of the twelve. 4And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them.

Now first let me get rid of this false belief that SATAN was some spirit outside of Judas and literally entered him. The word ENTERED is translated as “of thoughts that come into the mind” – So really, this THOUGHT arose from WITHIN. As Jesus said, “Nothing going into a man defiles him”… Yes that serpent is hanging in your garden (your soul)… So this thought arose inside JUDAS to deny AND betray the TRUTH, as opposed to DENYING HIMSELF.

Even reading this paper, there will be thoughts rising inside SOME OF YOU, thinking about all your religious leaders have taught you. You may even go and speak to them about this, seeing how you may BETRAY this great truth. – You see JUDAS, was of the same tribe as Jesus, looked like Jesus, acted like Jesus, but he carried the money bag. In the beginning, the Kingdom’s teaching were accepted BY HIM, but once the Carnal Man (Judas) was threatened, and that he had to deny himself… he wanted nothing to do with that. AS MANY OF YOU READING THIS WILL AS WELL.

21But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.

The One who BETRAYS the truth , is the same one the TRUTH is presented to. You see your Carnal Ego (who doesn’t really exist) will fight tooth and nail to hang unto the Field the Lord has given him. But when the TRUTH arises, they will seek to KILL IT, because to accept CHRIST AS LORD, is to accept that you are NO LONGER IN CONTROL.

1 Corinthians 4:4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.

BUT WHAT LIBERTY IS FOUND IN THIS! WHAT PEACE? WHAT FREEDOM?

48But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

You see there are many here, who have greeted this TRUTH (with a kiss = accepting) but once CHRIST begins to move farther, they refuse. They don’t to stop worshipping the CREATURE (the man Jesus) as opposed to the Creator (Our Father and our Lord Christ Within, which is our life)

52Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?

You see there will come a time for all of us, where we will be rejected for coming to understand who we are. When once we were embraced and loved, soon we will be treated as THIEVES. ( a thief is someone who tries to get into the Kingdom another way) – They will call you heretic, liar, antichrist, but DON’T LOSE HOPE! For the day is here, when these things will be revealed. Nothing shall stop this mighty move of God. This is what the whole creation has been groaning for, the MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD (the first and the last)

53When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

Even though CHRIST is within all, teaching and leading at a pace that God has set… If they ask you plainly…

67Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:

They will not believe the GREAT TRUTH of who we are. That in fact we are the SON/DAUGHTER of God. That JESUS was no different than any of us. “as he is so are we in this world”

2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

There will be many that will deny this great truth. But I say, turn them over to SATAN (thier own egotistical imagination) for the destruction of their flesh so their SPIRIT may be saved on the day of the Lord.

70Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.

When we all realize we are the SAME, there will be no more war, famine, hate, disease, we will be FREE!

SO JACOB ARE YOU THE SON OF GOD? — Yes I am, and so are you! Deal with it. 🙂 Peace to you all.
