The Devil Is A Lie!

The Devil Is A Lie!

The truth of who we are has been hidden for ages. However, today many of us are waking up to the real possibility of peace, joy, and harmony. Below is a video called, “the devil is a lie” which I do hope you enjoy. At the very least it will provoke you to ask yourself, “is what I believe, true?”

In one of my favorite parables in scripture, the author describes the heart of man much like a wheat field. Sadly, like any garden, weeds also appear. In this parable, we are told that directly after the planting of the wheat (which is an allegory of the truth), tares were planted by an enemy.

While we slept an “Enemy”, which you will find is another word for what Freud called our “ID”, or as I call it, our “carnal ego” planted TARES. These tares of course are a symbol of lies.

Let me explain, WHEAT has SEED (truth) – TARES do not… And Tares can destroy the wheat if the field is left unattended.

So, we see a picture of mankind’s heart…. While the MAN or WOMAN sleeps (is ignorant, or unconscious to what is really going on) this ENEMY of TRUTH plants lies in their heart.

Now, when we were young it was hard for us to know the difference between the lies and the truth, this is why we learn in this parable that the messengers/angels were held back until the harvest to pluck the TARES/LIES out of our heart. Because until the TRUTH grows up and matures within us, it is very difficult to know the difference between a lie and truth. So, the story goes that the messengers were told to wait until both mature before trying to rid the field of tares, because if they didn’t the wheat might be lost instead.

This is a great revelation for us… because it tells us that there is a reason for the lies within the heart of man today. It also tells us that there is a time when the TRUTH matures that these lies will be done away with.

This is my hope.

This enemy that we find in this story is called the DEVIL. We know from scripture that the DEVIL is A LIAR, the FATHER OF ALL LIES, and that there is NO TRUTH IN THE DEVIL. This is also a revelation, for if there is no truth in something, it cannot ultimately be real, UNLESS WE MAKE IT SO.

This ENEMY has ruled this world for far too long, today the devil is revealed, it is a beast that is and is not and yet is, (as scripture states), this devil is WHO YOU IGNORANTLY THINK YOU ARE AND BELIEVE YOU ARE NOT!

This video called “The Devil is a Lie”, uses scriptures to explain how the Devil is not a spooky spiritual being outside of us, but it is the LIE of who we thing we are, it is MAN’S EGO… Let me share a couple of scriptures to illustrate this point for those who have not read my articles on what devils, demons and satan is…

John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, (a creation of your EGO) and the lusts of your father (Your EGO) you will do. He (man’s ego) was a murderer of (the truth/who you really are) from the beginning (being born), and abode not in the truth (did not exist in the TRUTH), BECAUSE THERE IS NO TRUTH IN HIM (your ego).. When he (your ego) speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own (LIES): for he (THE EGO) is a liar, and the father of lies.

As stated earlier, IF there is NO TRUTH in the DEVIL (Man’s ID or CARNAL EGO) than that means the devil (your carnal ego) is not REAL and TRUE… Something cannot truly exist if there is NO TRUTH in that thing… This is why the scriptures states…

>Revelation 17:8 The beast (MAN’S EGO) that thou sawest was (Seemed to exist), and IS NOT (does NOT EXIST); and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit (ignorance has no foundation)…. when they behold the beast (EGO) that was, and IS NOT, and yet SEEMS TO BE.

I encourage you all to do a search in the scriptures for every scripture that talks of DEVILS, DEMONS, AND SATAN… you will find that this MURDERER OF THE TRUTH is compared to false beliefs, lies, made up gods, idolatry, an adversary, a condemner, a waster, a destroyer etc etc… the CARNAL EGO’S job is to DRIVE US back to the TRUTH of WHO WE ARE… Which is why the disciples turned unbelievers over to SATAN for the destruction of their flesh (lies/death) so their SPIRIT (TRUE NATURE) CAN BE SAVED…..

1 Corinthians 5:5 To deliver such a one unto SATAN (THE TESTING OF THE EGO) for the destruction of the flesh (THE CARNAL MIND AND LIES), that the spirit (THOUGHTS of LIFE, LOVE/GOD) may be saved….

Please do not just believe what others say, because this is another trick of the DEVIL (EGO)… Study to show yourself approved! Enjoy this video and please do share, subscribe, comment and support, peace to you all Jacob CLICK THIS LINK FOR THE VIDEO.

Call Upon The Name

CALL UPON THE NAME

This weekend I had the chance to speak with a pastor of a near by church. He was sharing quite a bit with me. I took the oppurtunity to do the same. I knew that the way I “see” things was dramatically different than the way he saw things. So I didn’t try to force my views on him, nor did I try and prove what he was saying as wrong. He of course, put heavy emphasis on Jesus the man/the Christ being Lord and Savior and that if you don’t put all your trust in this man from two thousand years ago then you will not be saved.

When I asked him what it is that we needed saving from. His answer was of course infinite torture. You see his view of salvation is an assurance that in the future a God of Love will not torture him endlessly.

This is what I call the dangling of the carrot. Hold that carrot out in front of the donkey and get that donkey to work for you without ever receiving the reward. To an extent this is very true with religion today. There is a lot of self assurance and belief that in the future everything will finally be perfect, but in the now the majority of mainstream “believers” are some of the most miserable. And why wouldn’t they be? They are taught that they have no power over their situations. They are taught that there is a scary monster called the devil who is out to get them, so when anything goes wrong of course it couldn’t be them who are either to blame for it, or benefit from it. They are also taught how to be prideful and arrogant and prejudice. They are convinced they are part of some elite club and that anyone outside that club is somehow “less than”. They believe that it is love to tell a person that they are going to burn endlessly if these people don’t change their orientation or belief. They are taught that they will be blessed with more money IF they only give their money, sort of like a spiritual lottery where you have to be in it to win it. The reward for their devotion to whatever church, temple, mosque, or religion they serve is the promise of a future pay off… THAT NEVER COMES WHILE THEY WALK THIS EARTH. Sort of like saying, work for me for the rest of your life and after your dead I’ll pay you.

Now this line of “sinking” ironically is not even scriptural. It took me many years of study, prayer and contemplation to see how very tricked I too had been. I too, had been the donkey chasing after that carrot. It took years to finally give up this egotistical line of “sinking” and find that the carrot had already been within. The instant I did, I began to rest.

After your work, and you SEE all you have done under the sun, and you can say that everything was for the good… YOU REST! This my friends is salvation.

Salvation is NOT a future event. It is freedom from your fear, your worries, your dread, your insecurities, your pride, your hate, your shame, your illusions, etc. Salvation is KNOWING the TRUTH of who you are. Because it is THE TRUTH that sets you free! Salvation is finally entering the KINGDOM OF GOD. Which is NOT a future event… it is a NOW EVENT.

For those who do not know what the Kingdom of God is… this is not some far off palace in the sky. The Kingdom is WITHIN YOU and it is RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE AND JOY! – It is finally finding REST! It is finally being able to LIVE YOUR LIFE IN ALL IT’S GLORY!

Romans 14:17
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

Now, where mainstream Christianity uses fear as a motivator… you will find that in the kingdom of heaven, there is no fear… there is ONLY LOVE!

God is LOVE! And there is NO FEAR in love. In fact, perfect LOVE casts out all fear!

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

And yet those in mainstream Christianity will use fear of this or that, whether it is hell or the devil, to get you to do whatever it is they want you to do. “You better do this… OR BURN!!!!!”

Fear produces death. Giving people a to do list to find peace is pictured beautifully in the allegory of the LAW. Moses came up with what seems like an endless list of do’s and don’ts for us to follow… OR ELSE! In it contained ways to punish people, condemn people, and yes kill people… Man’s law is not God’s law. The LAW OF LOVE is CLEAR!LOVE GOD FIRST and…

Mark 12:31
And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Man’s law produces fear, shame, regret, pride, anger, lust and more… The Law of Man produces DEATH (carnal minded thinking)… It is the LAW OF SIN and DEATH. The LAW OF LOVE, which one finds when they rest… SETS YOU FREE!

Romans 8:2
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

No to do this one must learn to DENY themselves. They must TAKE UP THEIR CROSS. They must lay down the lies the once learned and cross over to the truth.

Let’s for a moment see what mainstream Christianity says we need to do to find out “future salvation”. Then I will show you what we must lay down to be free now.

Salvation according to mainstream christianity is “confessing Jesus as Lord and escaping and endless amount of unspeakable torture. The caveat being, this infinite horror show many professing Christians have no problem saying a GOD OF LOVE created.

The same God of “love” who created you, and me. The same God of love who told us all to love and forgive, especially our enemies. The same God of love who said, If we know how to take care of our children and we are ignorant, HOW MUCH MORE does this same God know how to treat his own.

The logical question many parents would ask is, if they, themselves, would never give up on their kids regardless of what their children had done, why would God? There is not one parent that would send their child away to a place of unspeakable torture because their child was too ignorant to know their parent to begin with. Anyone reading this would agree, it is better for a child to be taught and encouraged and loved. Yet, not the god of mainstream Christianity. No, this God would say that we should always forgive and love, yet this God, according to mainstream Christianity will not do the same.

IF you DON’T do as you have been told, if you DON’T say the magic words and call upon the name of the “Lord”, the very same God of “love” who created you, and told you to love always, forgive always, to do good always even to those who do you wrong, will send you to a this place of infinite torture.

And I bought into that line of “sinking” for many years believe it or not. Even though it never sat right with me.

I just wanted so desperately to know God, to escape my sadness and to find peace. I thought I better get in line and believe what everyone had been telling me was true since I was about twelve years old, you know, JUST IN CASE I was headed to Dante’s inferno for not doing so.

I was alive once before the LAW came. I didn’t fear God. I had hope. I trusted in God’s provision. I believed I could be anything. I didn’t worry about what tomorrow would bring, what I would wear, what I would eat. I didn’t worry that God was angry with me, holding me under his judgmental microscope waiting for me to mess up so he could send me to a place that makes the movie SAW look like something from Walt Disney’s imagination…. I WAS ALIVE ONCE UNTIL THE LAW CAME.

I was TRICKED AS PAUL was TRICKED! Really read this next verse and then let’s open our eyes a little wider as the truth come forward.

Romans 7:8-10
8 But sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, produced in me every kind of coveting. For apart from the law, sin was dead. 9 Once I was alive apart from the law; but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life and I died. 10 I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life actually brought death.

Paul understood he had been tricked, just like I was tricked… JUST LIKE YOU WERE TRICKED. But trust me the deception goes much deeper than this. We are just getting started with this one people.

But back to Paul. You see “HE” was TRICKED by religious people as I was. He was a Pharisee of Pharisees. “SIN” seized the opportunity to take the very TRUTH ABOUT GOD intended to bring life and actually tricked Paul into living a life of death.

Let me offer what I believe Romans 7:8-10 means.

Sin is the thought of foolishness. It is missing the mark, missing the truth. Sin is missing the SPIRIT of things. SIN can take something that is meant to be a blessing and turn it into a curse. It is taking something the wrong way. Like reading the directions of a shampoo bottle and thinking you must continue to wash your hair again and again and again, because it says “Repeat”. As opposed to understanding this means, the NEXT TIME you wash your hair do the same thing.

So Paul misunderstood what the LAW OF GOD really meant. This is what SIN is, it is to think foolishly, to be ignorant, TO MISS THE TRUTH OF GOD and MISS THE MARK OF WHO YOU REALLY ARE.

Proverbs 24:9
The thought of foolishness is sin

Paul was ALIVE ONCE, as I was ALIVE before MY FOOLISH UNDERSTANDING of GOD’S LAW TRICKED me into thinking I was miserable sinner who was damned to suffer the horrors of endless suffering.

The truth is we were ALL ALIVE once before SIN (OUR FOOLISH UNDERSTANDING) took the opportunity to turn the WONDERFUL TRUTH OF GOD into a terrible threat where we better do what religious men and women tell us to do, believe as they believe, think as they think, condemn as they condemn, OR ELSE!

We all began our lives as ADAM (Which by the way, literally means MANKIND as a whole).

We ALL were ADAM, we began UNASHAMED of who God created us to be. We were at peace. We had no fear of the future, no shame of the past, we were children alive in the garden, living the life God intended… THAT IS OF COURSE, until we were brought to that TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL and told we better eat or else.

At around twelve years old or so I began to listen to what the Priest told me, in my reLIEgion classes I was made to attend I was first taught of the horrors that await IF I DIDN’T FOLLOW THE FOLD. Side note: something FOLDED has something important wrapped up and hidden within.

Until the priest and religion instructors told me what a blasphemous sinner I was, I had no idea that I was born into this world the miserable horrible sinner that God loved so much he actually had to murder his own son to save me. Which of course if I didn’t swallow that bait hook, line and sinker, I would be punished for. So I had to believe my God of Love, actually hated me and murdered his son to save me, BUT only if I believed he did this.

SOUNDS RIDICULOUS if you really think about it. But as children we don’t know any better do we?

AND SO…. (PLEASE RE-READ WITH DIFFERENT EYES)

Romans 7:8-10
8 SIN, SEIZING the opportunity afforded by the commandment (the foolish idea of what God’s commandments were), produced in me every kind of coveting. For apart from the law (This kind of foolish thinking), sin was dead (I had no fear and ignorance). 9 ONCE I was ALIVE apart from the law; but when the commandment came, sin (THE IGNORANT TEACHING OF WHAT IT WAS, WHICH IT REALLY WASN’T) sprang to life and I died. 10 (LATER IN LIFE) I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life actually brought death. (BECAUSE I NEVER REALLY UNDERSTOOD IT)… THANK YOU SIN!

IN THE GARDEN…

The SERPENT said EAT FROM THIS TREE and you will be LIKE GOD! The Serpent said, if you eat from this you surely won’t die. Just as the RELIGIOUS leaders of my youth told me, they said believe this, do this, don’t do that, and you will LIVE FOR EVER… or else!

YES, the EGO of man is clever and as children (immature in the faith) we listen. I listened and it took hold and my whole world changed.

You see as kids, we DON’T know truly, as EVE didn’t know, that we ALREADY WERE AND ARE LIKE GOD. We DIDN’T HAVE to eat from the tree of knowledge of what is good and what is evil to be like what we were. WE ALREADY ARE AND WERE the children of God. But when those religious leaders told us, WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG in God’s eyes to be God’s child we listened and we ate, and we BELIEVED, and EVERYONE OF US DIED SPIRITUALLY!

The instant we believed, we began seeing God outside of us, far away and distant from us. We believed God was angry at us… for simply being born into a fallen world because of someone else’s mistake we were told. AND WE BELIEVED THAT TOO.

And so we were cast out of the GARDEN, which is within us, which is the Kingdom of God, which is where we lived/existed BEFORE SIN (FOOLISH BELIEF) took hold and condemned us to death.

If truth be told, it wasn’t ADAM that fell, It was US!

Think back to when you were a child, carefree and happy. Then question, why did it all changed?

The answer is we were tricked into separating ourselves from the truth by listening to lies. And what a cost we have all paid.

The instant we ate of the egotistical lies of religion our eyes were opened to a whole new world of death. And that world was one where we suffered, and had to work harder and harder to become what we had forgotten we already were, GOD’S ONLY BEGOTTEN.

We were told we were NAKED and that we should be ashamed, that were SINNERS in need of a Savior. We were told we were no good, losers, that we would never know peace or joy UNLESS WE DID AS those keepers of the TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL told us to do.

The serpents tricked us into eating and we ate. AND CONTINUE TO EAT! Because we have not yet believed, IT IS NOT BLASPHEMOUS TO ACCEPT WHO WE TRULY ARE.

Think about this, who did Jesus call serpents?

That’s right the religious leaders of the time. The ones who looked all righteous on the outside but were filled with hypocrisy and death.

Matthew 23
33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers

These blind guides did not see (know) the truth, and we followed them and did we not ALL FALL INTO THE DITCH of IGNORANCE AND SUFFERING?

They told us we were sinners, and that we should be ashamed, and that we should hate who we were, we were bad, bad, bad! So bad we deserve to be tortured endlessly… Once again their reason was simple, because of ONE’S MAN’S SIN six thousand years ago. Another shining example of how SIN takes the scriptures and makes it mean the very thing it means not.

YET, did God tell us we should be ashamed of who we are? Did God tell us we need to do anything to be who he created us to be? NO! One of the very first things God told us NOT TO DO was to EAT OF THAT TREE!

Genesis 3:11
And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

So I ask you, DID GOD TELL YOU THAT YOU WERE A SINNER or DID MANKIND?

The answer is simple, CARNAL MANKIND did.

So a bigger question is now raised? What is salvation? Do we really need to be saved from some monstrous fate God has predestined for those who don’t do as the religious/serpents tell us?

OR do we need to be saved from the SIN of believing what the religious/serpents have tricked us into believing?

The SIN OF ADAM was EATING OF THAT TREE wasn’t it? ADAM’S sin was not simply being born ignorant of God, it was being tricked into believing he had to do something to be like God.

SO WHAT IS IT WE NEED TO REALLY BE SAVED FROM?

Well let me first put on theory to rest. We are NOT saved from some place of infinite torture called Hell. The reason is simple, there is no such thing. Hell literally translates into the GRAVE, the HIDDEN PLACE, it is IGNORANCE. For the sake of time, if you disagree with this statement please do go to my search bar and read two essays I have written here, one is called “Hell Revealed” and the other is called “Lake of Fire Revealed” and NO they are not the same thing.

HELL (our ignorance/death) is cast into the LAKE OF FIRE (Which is God’s spirit, a consuming fire, which is an allegory for refinement. As impurities as burned away from precious metals, so are our impure thoughts burned away with the truth.)

Nothing can separate us from the love of God! Only our ego can trick us into thinking we are far from God.

Romans 8
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 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.

I must add, since HELL is our ignorance, it is indeed our IGNORANCE that we need to be saved from.

Now there are many teaching today that God will forgive us and save all men. And that is a step in the right direction. The problem with this is, they are still placing salvation in the future. They are still saying this salvation was attained by one man who was put to death so we could die and go to heaven. And that my friends is a big problem. It is like saying, one doesn’t need to learn how to drive to get a license, because one man learned for us all. This is another trick of that enemy called the ego. Once again it is putting faith in something outside of you, instead of going within.

This belief that the price was paid by someone else, and that we need do nothing but believe that… is like trying to get to the truth by entering another door because it seems easier and people told you to.

John 10:1
10 Verily, 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.

The thief and the robber is the ego of man, always trying to do it the carnal way.

HOWEVER, when you enter into the truth… the same person who was once a follower of the truth, becomes the truth itself.

John 10:2
2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

Jesus never said to simply believe on him and it’s good. Jesus said, to take up the cross, to do as he did, to see as he saw, to be what you were born to be. Jesus never said to pray to him, or to think that you are good by simply believing he did what he did. HE SAID…

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.

DENY YOURSELF, this doesn’t mean to deprive yourself. It means to DENY IT. To understand who you think you are IS NOT WHO YOU ARE. Jesus said IF ANY MAN COME AFTER HIM, LET HIM DENY WHO HE THINKS HE IS, take up the same CROSS from death to LIFE AND FOLLOW THE PATTERN LAID OUT FOR US ALL.

Imagine if you will that I had overcome this world, and I told you “I AM” the resurrection and the life. The SIN would be to think that “I”, “Jacob Israel” was the SAVIOR who you must put all your trust in… However, the words can be read another way… “I am the resurrection and the life” MEANING the path to resurrection and life from the death of our ignorance is UNDERSTANDING “I AM”, understanding who YOU ARE TRULY is the RESURRECTION from the ignorance of who you once thought you were. It was never about putting your faith in one man from thousands of years ago, IT WAS ALWAYS ABOUT understanding THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS WITHIN YOU. It is about finding your way back into the garden. It is about DENYING who you think you are and taking hold of the marvelous truth that you are God’s only begotten child.

When you do this, when you deny yourself and take up the cross from death to life, you too can say when people ask to show them the Father that “I am in the Father and the Father is in me”. For the Father is all there is.

Now for those that teach, only Jesus did what has to be done what follows is people feel that they are let off the hook. Meaning, people can basically live the way they want to live and it’s all good. The truth is, whatever a man sows he shall also reap. We are corrected in this life and when this happens we MUST pay attention to it. Our testing is the trial of our faith. This is our refinement process. So to simply believe you have arrived and it’s all good and you can go about and live your life any old way you want because someone else did all the work is in fact another lie of the ego. And just because your EGO has made you believe that this is some grand revelation doesn’t mean it is true. The EGO can come as an angel of light and cause you much harm.

Just because you believe it’s all going to be peaches and cream after physical death doesn’t mean you are saved. Because salvation has absolutely nothing to do with the future. You are still trapped, you are still in hell, you still need to be saved from YOUR”SELF” in the here and now.

You see the thief wants to do three things to you.

John 10:10
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…

The THIEF pictured here is your EGO, the person you have been tricked into believing is you, the one you must deny. Another name for this thief is the Devil. Once again, please read my article called “Man’s Ego is the Devil” if you have questions about that statement. And it is this THIEF, this FALSE SENSE OF SELF that you need to be saved from. You need to be saved from your ignorant suffering. You need to KNOW LIFE AGAIN! And the only way to do this is to embrace who you truly are and always have been. This revelation is revealed with you.

John 10:10
… “I” (WHO YOU REALLY ARE) am come (IS REVEALED) that they might HAVE LIFE, and that they might have it more abundantly.

BELIEF doesn’t set anyone free, going along with the popular crowd doesn’t set anyone free, doing this or doing that doesn’t set you free… ONLY THE TRUTH OF WHO YOU REALLY ARE sets you free.

John 8
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Now what I am about to share may shock you, but it doesn’t make it any the less true. Thankfully the scriptures also back this revelation up.

As with the story of ADAM, the story of Jesus’ crucifixion is also OUR STORY!

Jesus is a symbol of who we all really are and were before “we/our ego” crucified him. As Paul said, we also were crucified with him.

When Jesus died, we died. Why? BECAUSE WE ARE HIM AND HE IS US. Jesus is a symbol of the son of God we really are that we allowed RELIGIOUS LEADERS and POLITICAL LEADERS to KILL WITHIN US. But the same SON OF GOD that we are, that we all crucified, is also LORD. The word lord, in other scriptures it is translated to Jehovah, literally means the EXISTING ONE. You see, JESUS (a symbol of humanity in it’s risen/resurrected/enlightened state) is the ONLY US that really EXISTS!

We have the MIND OF CHRIST, we are the BODY OF CHRIST, we have the NAME OF CHRIST… That doesn’t leave any room for Tom, Dick and Carnal Harry.

Who we thought we were is actually the very same EGO that killed who we always have been. We chose an alternative reality, one where suffering is a way of life, where hopes and dreams go unanswered, where we have no power, where we need to do what religious people tell us to do to be saved from an imaginary place of infinite torture that doesn’t even exist.

YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW TO BE SAVED? FIND OUT WHO YOU ARE!

Let me break down the symbolism of the crucifixion for you. To help you better understand this.

Jesus is called the WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. No one can get to the FATHER without knowing the way, the truth, and LIFE!

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

ANDDDDDDDDD….. For THAT to be fully realized one must understand the nature (name) of God (love) is also the NATURE (name) of that person. Because when that nature is matured and we judge the truth correctly we understand AS HE (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.

Now WHO was condemned by the religious of the day and declared to be HERETIC for claiming to be the SON OF GOD?

THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE!

Who was rejected by many, who was angry at what religion had done to the way people understood God?

THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE!

Who was put to death by the religious and political leaders of the time. Because they wanted to be KING and rule, and didn’t want all of humanity to be ruled by the WAY, TRUTH, AND THE LIFE?

THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE!

And where was the WAY, TRUTH, AND THE LIFE put to death by these religious and political leaders?

That’s right GOLGOTHA… and what does GOLGOTHA MEANS? The PLACE OF THE SKULL! And what is beneath your skull? YOU BRAIN!

And where is the WAY, TRUTH, AND LIFE buried right now? WITHIN YOU!

And where is the WAY, TRUTH, AND LIFE seated? In the Temple of God… PLEASE POINT TO YOUR TEMPLES. What is between them?

YOUR BRAIN! Your thoughts!

Christ (The truth revealed in mankind) was put to death (buried beneath lies) at Golgotha (the place of the skull=Our brains), yet CHRIST(the way, truth, and life) remains seated in the TEMPLE of Gods (Your brain is between your temples).

We ALL were crucified with Christ (meaning we all became ignorant of the Truth) after we were given a crown of thorns.

And what does a crown symbolize? A RULE, BEING RULED. And what are the Thorns?

Mark 4:18-20
18 And these are they which are sown among THORNS; such as hear the word,
19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

The instant we took upon ourselves the SINS (foolish thoughts/cares) of the world, the TRUTH OF WHO WE WERE was put to death, by the new IDEA of what we should be.

And in that instant we began to believe God had forsaken us.

Matthew 27:46
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

All thanks to that religious egotistical serpent that said, TO BE LIKE GOD ALL WE MUST DO IS EAT!

We all believed we were separated from God and that produced death. We ALL were forced outside the GARDEN (our heart) and began living OUTSIDE the GARDEN, which means we began to put faith in everything temporal outside of us instead of the eternal truth that is within.

Newsflash people, WE WERE THE ONE “MAN” THAT BROUGHT DEATH INTO THE WORLD. The good news is WE ARE THE ONE MAN THAT BRINGS LIFE INTO THE WORLD. The instant we CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD!

Now here is the big shocker. Read this scripture carefully and buckle up because everything is about to change.

Romans 10:12-14
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

There is no difference between you and me, and those we see in the news or on the street. The same LORD IS OVER US ALL.

The word LORD translates to “The EXISTING ONE”

There is no difference between you and me or others, because the same ONE THAT EXISTS is over all. Meaning we ALL EXIST. We all share that same amazing gift or LIFE. CHRIST is our LIFE. WE EXIST! The world revolved around each of us. The sun rises and sets upon each of us. We ALL EXIST! We ALL are the one looking behind the son of the ONE WHO EXISTS… who we ignorantly call by our worldly name… Our EXISTENCE GAVE LIFE TO WHO WE ARE IN THIS WORLD. And just as we repent of the life we have created for ourselves and set out to destroy the idea of the person we used to be, we see the same story told over and over again in the scripture.

Genesis 6:6
And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

The one who exists wishes that he or she had not become the very thing they had become. This is the first step toward true salvation.

There is no difference between us, at our core we all EXIST! We ALL are in the father and the father is in us. We all can say, if you have seen (understood) ME you have seen (understood) I EXIST!

We need to go deeper, to seek more, really question who is behind the wheel driving our life? We need to see that “He that is WITHIN ME, the one who EXISTS, is GREATER than the ONE you think you are in this world.”

I GO TO MY FATHER (I AM/I exist), for he is GREATER than who I think I am.

That day, I will be IN YOU and you will be IN ME, because you will understand we ALL EXIST!

Now here is one way it is explained to US on how we will find salvation. And what follows is truly what this whole paper has been about.

Romans 10
13 For whosoever shall CALL upon the NAME of the LORD shall be saved.

It would be sin to think The words “call upon the name” of Jesus is how salvation is found. The words call upon (eÍpikaleÑw) actually translate to “to put a name upon, to surname, to permit one’s self to be surnamed, to be named after someone”

This is huge news people, because we already know the word LORD translates to THE EXISTING ONE. But what is indeed startling is the fact that the only way to find salvation is to CALL YOURSELF THE EXISTING ONE!

It is not about accepting Jesus Christ as your lord and savior, it is about accepting that what was true was Jesus is true for you. You too can say, BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS I AM. As Jesus did, before you knew ABRAHAM you EXISTED!

So you see the problem. For anyone to truly know salvation, they must first know SALVATION IS ALREADY THEIRS! You will never be free as long as you are looking outside of you for the answers, you will only know the truth when you enter in and become the shepherd of the sheep yourself. The next line in Romans is the reason so many still suffer.

14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed?

How are you going to finally come to realize who you are, if you believe it is a sin to do so.

CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD! CALL YOURSELF THE EXISTING ONE AND BREAK FREE!

The POWER OF LIFE AND DEATH IS IN YOU! Think differently!

Now before you go and say that I am declaring that “I AM” God alone, or that you are GOD ALONE… I want to remind of something, GOD IS THE ONLY THING THAT EXISTS!

Mark 12:32
And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is NONE OTHER
.

Now read this with new eyes.

Genesis 1:26
And God (THE ONLY ONE WHO EXISTS) said, Let US make man in our image, after our likeness
:

The ONE WHO EXISTS created who you think you are in the image of who you really are. You TRULY ARE more than you know.

I would like to leave you with this last ground breaking truth. In the scriptures, when Moses went to Pharoah and was asked what God sent him… Moses answered, “I Am”… God (The one who exists) spoke with Moses and explained that his true name was “I Am That I Am”. Not only does this mean God is existence itself… but the words “I AM” are translated incorrectly… Those Hebrew words literally translate into… “I WILL BE WHATEVER I WILL BE”.

God is the creator, he makes and remakes as he wills. Be what it is you want to be, by first knowing who you TRULY ARE! The POWER OF LIFE AND DEATH is in your mind and tongue. CREATE A LIFE FOR YOURSELF AND RISE FROM THE GRAVE OF RELIGIOUS THINKING.

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

ARE WE GOD?

untitled
ARE WE GOD?

That’s some title, is it not? An attention grabber for sure. However, a very important question to ask. A question that I have held off posting for many, many years. The reason is this very important question strikes fear into the hearts of people everywhere. We have been conditioned for so long to believe that such a question was off-limits. Not just off-limits, mind you, but we have been taught that to ask this question is the most blasphemous thing a person can do.

Have you ever wondered why that is?

What if the reason we have been conditioned to not ask this question is because the question itself may prove to be the very thing that sets us free?

Now I could post all sorts of scriptures that would make many second guess what they had been taught about God to begin with.

For example: That God is somehow far from them… when scripture teaches us that God is within us, through us, and is us. For God is all that exists.

1 Corinthians 8:6 – yet for us there is but ONE GOD, the Father, FROM WHOM ARE ALL THINGS and WE EXIST FOR HIM; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him (CHRIST).

We (who we believe ourselves to be) exist for GOD (the only one that really exists) and WE (Who we believe ourselves to be) exist THROUGH Christ.

The SON (who we are in this world) makes the Father known. And why does the SON (God’s creation) do this? … Because no one has SEEN God at any time.

John 1:18
No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

You can’t SEE the SEER people. The SEER declares the ONE who sees. This is hard for me to explain and make plain here as well, which is why I have held off so long from posing this question before you all.

Ponder this for a moment: Who is the one seeing out of your eyes? Is that you? Now take it a step further, who is the one who creates the dreams you have at night?

SURELY, you believe yourself to be your conscious mind. But your conscious mind is so much smaller than your sub conscious mind. In addition your conscious mind is IN your subconscious mind, and your subconscious mind is in your conscious mind… and news flash people…. Your conscious mind and subconscious mind are BOTH IN YOU.

No one can know the subconscious mind (for lack of a better title), but the conscious mind makes the subconscious mind known.

I know this may be a lot to take in and may seem like a stretch. Nevertheless, the point of this simple essay is only to get you to question…. WHO AM I? AM I IN CONTROL? WHAT IS THE MYSTERY OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD?

When the disciples asked Jesus to show them God, to make God tangible and understandable to them… what did Jesus say?

John 14:9-11
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? 10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me

Jesus said, IF YOU HAVE SEEN ME YOU HAVE SEEN GOD! He said God is IN him, and he is IN GOD. He said, even the words he spoke came from God (not WHO they thought Jesus was).

Let me explain that for a second. Jesus understood the truth. That HE AND GOD were ONE and the same… That the “Jesus” part was a creation or the SON (offspring) of GOD (THE ONLY ONE WHO REALLY EXISTS).

Another way of understanding this mystery is to look at our own sense of being. Who we believe ourselves to be in this world, our names, our pet peeves, our likes, our dislikes, our hang ups, etc… that is a creation of WHO WE REALLY ARE. Who we are in this world is who we CHOOSE to be in this world. We can easily change who we are. We can change our names, try new things, we can do whatever we want, become whoever we want… we are in control of who we project into this world… In other words, who we project into this world is our offspring. Who we project into this world is our creation, our child… And the only way for others to get to know the REAL US is by the CHILD (our creation) to express who we really are. Because no one can really know who we REALLY are, all they can is WHO WE DECLARE TO THE WORLD.

John 1:18
No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

So the SPIRIT within us, the “Lord” (existing one/one who truly exists) projects into this world the person we believe ourselves to be. And Jesus knew this well. Jesus understood that who he was in the world was simply the “child” of the God within us all… He wouldn’t dare say I AM GOD… yet he understood that God was LORD, that he was ONE with God and if ONE… then there is no other. This is a mystery and one that is hard to explain.

Who everyone knew Jesus to be in the world, who Jesus knew himself to be in this world WAS NOT GOD. He made that clear when he told the rich who was searching for answers, “there is NONE that is good save God”

When Jesus spoke to the disciples they couldn’t bear to hear this. They couldn’t grasp this. The disciples saw a man named Jesus and believed HE WAS GOD in the Flesh, people make this same mistake today. The belief that God is somehow separate from them…

Jesus wanted desperately for them to know the truth…. He even prayed that they would know that they were all ONE.

John 17
21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

Who we have believed ourselves to be is the creation of who we really are WITHIN. It is the IMAGE of who we really are… An image is not the source but a representation of the source.

“Let US (PLURAL) make MAN in OUR (PLURAL) IMAGE”

Don’t WE (who we really are) actually create who we want to be for others to see? Don’t we all do that?

We do it so often that sometimes it’s hard for us to keep track of who we really are, because we are so busy creating the image of who we want to be… BOTH CONSCIOUSLY AND SUBCONSCIOUSLY… And that is the reason the world seems to be in the mess it is.

Now let’s take that though a step further. First we create who we project into this world (who we think we are) and then we CREATE physical representations of (who we think we are) into this physical world as well by having children.

My wife and I said, “wouldn’t it be wonderful to create a child in our image”… and we then begin the joyous process of having children. WE CREATE HUMAN BEINGS. This begins within us and we then birth it out into this physical world. Then we go so far as to FORM those CHILDREN into WHO WE WANT THEM TO BE… Which in effect makes it hard for them to TRULY KNOW WHO THEY ARE… which is THE SAME AS WHO WE ALL REALLY ARE. Because there is ONLY GOD.

The word “Lord” in Greek, we defined literally means “THE EXISTING ONE, THE ONE WHO EXISTS”

When Moses dares to share GOD with Pharoah… what was the NAME OF GOD AGAIN?

“I AM” – “I EXIST”

BE STILL AND KNOW I AM GOD!

Think about this for a second. God can never forsake you or leave you?

WHY? you ask… Because YOU CANNOT FORSAKE OR DENY YOURSELF (who you really are within)… And it doesn’t even matter if you don’t believe what I am writing is true… because you can’t deny who you are to begin with.

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

What if this is the key to our freedom? Could it be that we ALL are GOD in a manner of speaking? That we are all many members of the ONE BODY WHICH IS GOD?

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.

And if that be true is it so far-fetched to think that we all ARE projecting who we think we are into the world and creating all the wonderful things and terrible things we experience… because we simply believe that is what is supposed to be.

Is it possible that we create our own suffering and create our joy? Is this possible? The scriptures seem to back up this belief.

Proverbs 23:7
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he

Job said, he greatest FEAR came upon him. Is it possible that our thoughts create our world? Is this why the scriptures warn us that the power of life and death is in the tongue?

Proverbs 18:21
Death and life are in the power of the tongue

Consider something on a tangible scale… Look at your wall… now imagine a beautiful painting there… Can you not simply be imagining this and desiring this, create this and manifest this into your world?

Didn’t Jesus say, “with FAITH NOTHING shall be impossible to you?”

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.

BELIEF is the KEY to creation. Let me tell you why.

WHATEVER YOU BELIEVE YOU RECEIVE.

If you don’t think you have power to calm the storm, YOU CAN’T… because you have created you inability to do so. If you BELIEVE you can turn your situation around, YOU WILL. If this wasn’t true then why would the scriptures point us in this direction?

Mark 11:24
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them
.

IF YOU BELIEVE YOU WILL RECEIVE! But if you don’t want to believe these words, then look to your lives and ask yourself if anything in your life that has happened was something you couldn’t believe would happen… Then ask yourself, is anything that you want in life but don’t have something you truly believe you can have.

For years I have lived a life of saying I would do this or that before I found myself doing this or that. That goes for the good and the bad. Because if I am truly honest with myself… this is the story that I told myself and believed so what other story could be played out before me.

Few people are ready to grab unto the belief that their every waking moment is a creation of who they are to begin with. The problem is most are creating only fear and misery in their life… because they have been programmed since birth to believe that they are no good sinners and that they are incapable of saving themselves from their own ignorant creation.

One way of looking at it is… Your CONSCIOUS mind is the seed giver… An allegory of this is ADAM if you will… Your SUBCONSCIOUS MIND is a sense EVE the MOTHER OF ALL…

When the conscious mind and subconscious mind are of one accord, they are perfect, WHOLE… they are God manifested in this world.

Philippians 2:2
Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

One MIND, one God, ONE baptism, One Spirit, ONE…

The problem is the conscious and subconscious mind have been separated, the subconscious mind was taken out of the conscious mind’s control… Just as Eve was taken out of Adam. The big trouble started when the subconscious mind began listening to the wrong HUSBAND… Our ego began talking to our subconscious mind and now we find our greatest fears coming upon us… because we deal more with thoughts of fear and worry and doubt and BELIEVE them to be true, more than we believe that we HAVE THE POWER TO CREATE. So in essence we are ignorantly creating all the time… JUST NOT THE THINGS WE DESIRE. We only create the things we BELIEVE will be.

Another way or looking at it is our subconscious mind is as GOD and our conscious Mind is as ADAM… and there was a time both were one accord and NOW they are separate.

These ideas I put forth, are simply ideas… but well worth pondering.

However just as our EGOTISTICAL IGNORANT thoughts can impregnate our subconscious mind and manifest it into the world… so can OUR CONSCIOUS mind do the same…

This is what the scriptures mean by taking on the mind of Christ, killing off the anti-christ… etc.

We have forgotten the truth and there has been this “veil” between the truth and who we think we are in this world. But this veil is taken away the instant we take up that cross.

2 Corinthians 3:14
But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ

Let’s put aside all of our religious indoctrination and the fear that goes along with it for a moment. Let’s dare to ask ourselves the really hard questions.

Like, why is it sometimes we start hearing a song in our head and all of a sudden there it is on the radio. Why is it we daydream of an old friend we haven’t heard from in years and then WHAMO they call? Why is it we dream of things before they happen, think of things before they happen? Why do we constantly say to ourselves “I knew that was going to happen.”

What if there really is more to us then we know.

Let’s look at the facts.

Where is God according to scripture?

1 Corinthians 3:16
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth IN you?

Point to your temples people… God is ruling right there from his throne… in his KINGDOM. And where is God’s kingdom?

Luke 17:21
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

God exists IN his TEMPLE which is who you project into this world. God creates the Temple which is who you project into this world. God exists in his Kingdom… which is WITHIN YOU (who you project into the world).

WHO YOU PROJECT IN THIS WORLD is the TEMPLE OF GOD… AND GOD IS IN THE TEMPLE… and this TEMPLE you can tear down and rebuild at will…

Matthew 26:61
And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.

According to scripture GOD exists WITHIN YOU (who you think you are)… Just as the subconscious mind exists within the conscious mind and vice versa.

You are truly the beginning and the end of your life. You are the very center of all things IN YOUR WORLD. Everything everywhere exist outside of you, but has to exist WITHIN you for you to experience it. WHY IS THAT?

What if you dared to look deeper? What would happen if you dared to take responsibility for everything that happens in your life? Now… what would happen if you began to CREATE and ACT… as opposed to simply believing you are going along for the ride.

Your experiences are dependent on your choices and your choices are dependent on what you believe can and cannot be accomplished.

The god of this world is YOUR EGO… Your ego is the one that tells you that you are powerless and that you have no control. Your ego created a god outside of you, far away from you, a god that you cannot see, hear, or feel… your ego has led you out of the garden of Eden (which is you)… You ego has you focused on everything outside you as opposed to turning within. And it is this GOD OF THIS WORLD (your ego) that has blinded us of the GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST (awakening)

2 Corinthians 4:4
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Jesus said… if you want to know the way to the FATHER… then look at me. Jesus said I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE… Jesus also said so is everyone else.

AS GOD 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.

I wrote this article not to say I am God… but to pose a question to all of you… IF YOU AND I AND EVERYONE WAS GOD how would that change the way we live our life?

And for those that say we should not question such things… I will remind you of what Jesus said to his disciples.

Luke 11:9-11
9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

My prayer has always been “Teach me the truth no matter what the cost.” Because it is only the TRUTH that can set us all free… The question I have now is… Just who am I praying to? If the only God there is, is within me to begin with.

It is important to note that being one with something, and understanding that that “something” is all there really is, does not make you that “something” as well …

The YOU you ARE in this world is a projection of something so much greater than who you believe, and know yourself to be… Who you are in this world is a “HOST” for something much greater than you, hiding away within you, pulling the strings, the ghost in the machine. The LORD (EXISTING ONE) OF HOSTS is another name for “God” in scripture. But make no mistake about it, “No one has seen God at anytime…” YOU CAN’T SEE THE SEER after all.

Which is why, the greatest of all prayers is… “Not my will be done Lord (existing one) but thine!”

MAN’S EGO IS THE DEVIL



MAN’S EGO IS THE DEVIL

This will be probably my shortest post to date. Tonight I felt it was necessary to explain what the Carnal EGO of man is, show you what the scriptures call Mankind’s Ego, and how the truth finally sets us free from it all.

The EGO is defined as “A consciousness of Identity, Individuality and a person sense of SELF importance” – An EGO is WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE… now with that in mind. Let me open up some scriptures for you after a brief intro.

The EGO is the FATHER of all LIES. It is a LIE to begin with, for your EGO is not real and does not exist. This is your adversary, your enemy that is trying to devour you. Your EGO is prince of this world (ruler of your lusts). Your EGO is the one that condemns you, blames you, and tries to destroy you. YOU EGO will lie to you, steal from you, and ultimately destroy you… IF YOU DON’T RESIST your EGO. So resist your EGO and your EGO will depart. But be on your guard, because your EGO can come disguised as an ANGEL of LIGHT. Your EGO is the one who KILLED your TRUE NATURE (Gods child). Your EGO was a murderer from the BEGINNING. Because when you believed YOUR EGO was YOU, your TRUE NATURE was put to death (killed in your mind-Golgatha).

The Carnal Ego of man is the beast that is and is not and yet is… It is the devil that is written about in scripture.
————–
THE DEVIL spelled backwards is LIVED! Indeed, it is your past experience that FORMED this DEVIL of an idea of who you are. But you aren’t your past, you aren’t an addict, an abuser, a victim, a fool, a glutton, or anything else your past has tried to convince you, you are.
……YOU ARE MORE than the life you LIVED/DEVIL. This “DEVIL” of an identity was formed out of the DUST/LIES of your past. Your PAST IDENTITY, or the life you lived/devil that you IDENTIFY WITH is YOUR ENEMY!
……The DEVIL is the accuser of the brethren! This past IDEA of who you think you are was formed out of the life you LIVED/DEVIL and is always there to remind you how to judge people and circumstances. And by following after the past you continue to relive the past by making the same ignorant mistakes, based on the lies of the past and hang ups that aren’t real to begin with.
…..The DEVIL (Life you LIVED) is a LIAR! The past is a LIE because it does not exist anymore. So to make your decisions based on past experiences is to not judge things as they are in the moment. To LIVE IN THE PAST is to DIE IN THE PRESENT. This is why so many have “baggage” because they carry this DEVIL (life they have lived) everywhere with them. And because of this they continue to suffer.
….. You PAST does not dictate your future, unless you decide to allow it. You are more than you know. Just as you created your past experience you have the choice to create your present however you would like it. You are not the LIFE YOU LIVED/DEVIL — THE DEVIL is only the sum of your past experiences that you have allowed to RULE YOU in this age. This is why the DEVIL is called the god of this world. People are ruled by their past experiences, past beliefs, and their past traditions.
….. However, this is not who you are, you are whoever you decide yourself to be, YOU CAN CREATE who you are in each moment. Don’t let the sad life your LIVED/DEVIL dictate your present experience.
…… RESIST the lying voice of your past experience and it will flee from you. RESIST your past destructive behaviors, triggers, and ill informed notions and YOUR ENEMY the DEVIL (the condemning voice of your past idea of who you are) will flee!
—————
This DEVIL is the carnal EGO of man. This is the enemy hiding in plain sight. It is the YOU, you think you are but are not. Now not everyone is ready to hear this. Most believe there is an enemy outside of them working hard to ruin their lives, but this is another lie of man’s carnal ego. The Ego of mankind always wants to blame everyone and everything else as opposed to dealing in truth. And many can’t see this because they simply can’t hear this truth yet.

Luke 8:12
Those by the way side are they that hear the TRUTH; then comes their EGO, and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe WHO THEY ARE and be saved from WHO THEY THINK THEY ARE.


You can’t hear from God while listening to your Ego. It is impossible to hear the truth, when ruled by the false image that you have believed yourself to be. This is why so many people are torn up inside, this is why Paul wrote in Romans about wanting to do good but doing what he hates.

Romans 7:19
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.


You can’t serve two masters.

Luke 16:13
No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other
.

A house divided will eventually fall, now that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Because the house that many live in today is their EGO. And the Ego has to GO. The reason is simple, one will not listen to the TRUTH if their EGO has them believing they already know all they need to know.

Psalm 10:4
The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.


You ever try sharing the love of God with people who believe in infinite torture? They won’t listen to a word of what you say. Because the lie of the EGO’s in this world is strong. SO MANY people have taught about a place of endless torture for so long, so many believe in this place, the EGO of mankind won’t listen to different. The EGO of man will keep you from hearing the truth, and speaking the truth.

Matthew 9:32-34
32 As they went out, behold, they brought to him a DUMB man controlled by his EGO. And when his EGO was cast out, the DUMB spoke the truth, and the multitudes marveled saying, IT WAS NEVER SO SEEN IN ISRAEL.


No one wants to be wrong, many say. Our EGO needs to be fed, it needs to be puffed up constantly. It goes about looking for praise, looking for acceptance, and looking for approval. But this is all vanity, it is a chasing the wind, or as eating dust. You will never grow spiritually or truly benefit by feeding your ego.

Genesis 3:14
And the LORD God said unto the EGO, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly (lusts) shalt thou go, and dust (lies/imagination) shalt thou eat all the days of thy life
:

The SERPENT (Carnal EGO of Man) has always been within man. Just as the Brain Stem (Reptilian Brain) has always been within man, controlling his basest desires (fight/flight/lust/rage/etc)

Those who choose the HIGHER WAY, the TRUTH will depart from the evil of the EGO.

Proverbs 16:17-19
17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.
18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
19 Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.


Notice that a HAUGHTY SPIRIT (we know spirits are thoughts)… Haughty THOUGHTS come before a FALL… And who was it that fell again?

Luke 10:18
And he said unto them, I beheld the EGO of Mankind as lightning fall from heaven.


Your EGO will lift you up, and then tell you to cast yourself down.

Luke 4:5-7
5 And the MAN’S EGO, took him up to heights of pride and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the Man’s EGO said unto him, All this power will I give you, and the glory of this-worldly system: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. 7 If you will WORSHIP me and believe me and only listen to me, all shall be yours!


We saw the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness. He was TEMPTED, which means to be drawn away by your own lusts.

James 1:14
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.


And who does that tempting? Is there a literal snake trying to convince you to listen to lies, OR is it your EGO that does the tempting. And the deceit is so great because YOU THINK THESE THOUGHTS ARE YOUR OWN and you TRUST THEM. But they are NOT YOUR THOUGHTS, they are the LIES of your EGO.

John 8:44
You are of your father YOUR EGO, and the lusts of your EGO you will do. Your EGO was a murderer from the beginning, and EXISTS not in the truth, because there is no truth in your EGO. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.


The EGO of man will convince you that doing evil is good, and that doing good is evil.

John 13:2
And supper being ended, Judas’ EGO put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him (the TRUTH)

The EGO of man will convince you to follow all sorts of VAIN TRADITIONS and RELIGIOUS nonsense. This only feeds your EGO. By setting up chairs at service, or helping with parking, or fasting, or celebrating a certain way, dressing a certain way, being a certain way, and more… this is only a sacrifice for your EGO. God has only wanted you to LOVE GOD AND OTHERS!

1 Corinthians 10:20
… they sacrifice to their EGOS, and not to God: (Anyone give up something for lent, or to fast, etc… you sacrificed to appease YOUR EGO, not God)


So how do we beat this DEVIL (EGO)… we need to RESIST our EGO.

James 4:7
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the EGO, and he will flee from you
.

And how do we do that?

Ephesians 6:11
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of YOUR EGO.
(Look up what the armor of God is for more info)
The best way to stand against your EGO is to constantly seek the TRUTH. Pray for the TRUTH. Only act out of true love, and love lifts others it does not tear down. Love does not fight, debate, condemn, cast out, love never fails. There is no fear, worry, or hate in LOVE. If it ain’t LOVE it ain’t GOD, and if it ain’t God it is the Ego of man. Because it is our EGO that sins from the beginning.

1 John 3:8
He that committeth sin is of the EGO; for the EGO sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested within you, that he might destroy the works of the EGO.


Notice how we differentiate between children of God and children of the EGO.

1 John 3:10
In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the EGO: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother
.

Those Born of God LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Those born of their EGO, hate, hate, hate. Now this doesn’t mean that people who are children of their EGO’S, who think they are their EGO, who are ruled by their EGO don’t believe in God. The EGO is tricky, think about how many claim to believe in God and KILL in the name of God… or so they think. Their EGO convinced them, that to harm others, to condemn others is what would appease God. In fact, the EGO of man worships a god in its image. The god of the EGO is a scary, vengeful hateful God. One that will torture you endlessly for not following mankind’s religious ways. THAT’S THE EGO TALKING THERE PEOPLE! The EGO of man will convince people to do all sorts of things to appease their false god, because they are scared of this god as well.

James 2:19
Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the egos of man also believe, and tremble.


Mankind’s EGO is the cause of all suffering in the world. If it is not causing literal suffering, your ego will cast you into an emotional prison for which their seems to be no escape. And worse still the EGO of mankind will punish anyone who doesn’t believe what it believes. This is why we see people being killed in the name of God, or imprisoned, shunned, etc.

Revelation 2:10
Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, MAN’S EGO shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life
.

But the good news is the EGO is eventually destroyed in God’s consuming fire. It is LOVE that draws a multitude to repentance.

Revelation 20:10
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire


So hang in there, learn which thoughts to take captive, which to cast away and which to take to heart. God has thoughts of peace for you, the EGO has pride, fear, and worse for you. Choose this day which “God” you will serve.

DON’T FOLLOW YOUR EGO! LEGGO OF YOUR EGO!

WHAT IS THE MYSTERY



WHAT IS THE MYSTERY

The mysteries of life are as infinite as the questions we have about them. Albert Einstein said, “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.” However true this statement may be the mysterious can also be the source of great pain.

This is following entry is the first draft of Chapter one of the new book I have been working on, “Mystery No More”. I just wanted to share it with you all and get your comments and thoughts. I have been very up in the air about a lot of things lately and I am waiting on direction. In the mean time please enjoy Chapter one, of course this is not a finished chapter but it will give you an idea of what I have been working on. I sure hope you enjoy it. Don’t forget to subscribe to the blog if you haven’t already, it’s free and it will keep you posted on all the new stuff I write and post here. Jacob

One cannot deny that without mystery there would be nothing to discover, there would be no questions to have answered, there would be no search for meaning and without meaning no one’s life would seem worth living. The unknown can open the door to great adventure, exploration, wonderful discovery, advances in medicine, technology, and more. However, the mysterious can also open the door to superstition, fear and all manner of evil.

The darkness is only feared because one does not know what is hidden beneath it. The instant light swallows the darkness in victory what was once hidden, and feared, is now seen clearly and those fearful thoughts are erased. Spiritually the darkness that gives way to mankind’s fear is their ignorance.

Ignorance is never bliss as some have said. Mankind has long been a slave to it. The powers that be work hard to make sure things don’t change. They want the masses ignorant, scared and easily controlled. Great men and women have been persecuted, mocked, attacked, and killed for challenging the status quo and revealing the mysterious to others. Knowledge is power and those in control would most surely lose their power if the masses began to wake from their ignorant slumber.

Consider religion, for thousands of years it has tricked countless souls into believing they need to follow their religious leaders without question. It is hard to believe that a short while ago, men and women were put to death for simply owning a bible that was translated into English. The reason was simple; keep the world in the dark and their fear will keep them dependent on those who claim to have the answers. Keep people scared of invisible monsters called demons, an infinite place of suffering called hell, keep them fixed on the future and the past instead of the present, keep them waiting for salvation, keep them believing they have no power, and obedient to every religious law they are force fed. Keep them financially strained by taking their money with empty promises and threaten a punishment worse than death for those that dare to seek the truth for themselves or claim there is more.

Great men and women have been persecuted, mocked, attacked, and killed for challenging the status quo and revealing the mysterious to others. Once the truth is known, people will see that they don’t need to do this or that or go here or there to be saved from the pain of this world. Once the mystery is understood people will no longer allow themselves to be slaves of a religious system whose strength is found in their fear. Once the mystery is no more people will be free and will live their lives the way they were meant to live them.

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 8:32


Free from your fear, free from your sorrow, free from your shame, free from your regret, free from your doubt and most importantly free to know who you truly are and what you are truly capable of.

Sadly, this freedom which I so easily write about can only be found when the lies of religion have been let go. One cannot be free to be who they truly are if they have been conditioned since birth to believe they are someone they are not. One cannot be free from oppression or persecution if one has been conditioned since birth to believe they have to be dependent on others for answers and direction.

If a person has been conditioned since birth to believe that those dressed in religious garb are the only way to God then those in religious garb can demand anything from the ignorant and treat them however they wish. If a person is ignorant and has been conditioned to believe that the power and wisdom of God is only for a select few then they would never seek it for themselves, much less have the ability to tap into it. In addition, if a person was never to seek the truth for themselves they would remain in ignorant chains without hope. They would remain slaves to a system of control that only profits by keeping the truth far away. They would remain ignorant sheep never knowing they were born to be shepherds.

This is how it has been since the beginning and this is how it has been for far too long.

If the world caught on that they didn’t need a priest, pastor, rabbi, imam, or guru to find their way to eternal life and peace then the control of religion would fade away. If those in the world found out that the scriptures have been twisted, changed, taken out of context, misunderstood and mistranslated in an attempt to keep the masses in bondage, then the control of religion would fade away.

If those in the world found the truth of who they are they would be able to tap into the very source of everything, the world would forever change and the lies of religion and the pain of fear would be a distant memory.

The mysterious is a wonderful, powerful and liberating thing for those that seek and uncover the truth. However, in the oppressor’s hand the mysterious is the very gate of hell itself for those that follow without question.

We all say we want the answers, we all say we want the meaning of life. We all say we want an end to our suffering and a reason to live another day. We all say we want peace and purpose. We say we want to be content and at harmony with others. However, what we say we want and what we believe we can achieve are two very different things.

We have been tricked into believing that we will somehow be damned if we actually dare to embrace the divine. Religion has convinced us to put our faith outside of us, when all along our focus and faith should be firmly placed within.

The mysterious became a weapon used against us, because religion convinced us we weren’t allowed to question or seek for ourselves, and because of this we never found the very thing we wanted the most.

There is a voice inside of us telling us there is so much more. There is a believe deep within us that understands all will be well. There is a picture we have of what life can be, free from suffering, free from shame and fear, and we want desperately to find it. Yet, we find within us the inability to do so.

The apostle Paul wrote about this in the book of Romans. He, like many of us, had a picture of what life should be. He believed there was a golden path that each of us could walk with faith. He believed there was a way to rise above heartache, doubt, worry and fear. He believed we could be perfected in the here and now, not the hereafter. However after years of trying to find that perfect state, that peaceful existence, he wasn’t yet able to possess it. He fought the good fight of faith and continued to press on to the mark of that high calling, but the promise of perfection and peace eluded him. This is something we can all relate to. Nevertheless, it is also something that we can, and will overcome. In this world we may find heartache, we may suffer and yes we may have fear and doubt, but we will overcome it all the instant we lay hold of the truth hidden within the mystery.

“In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
John 16:13


If we have the promise of eternal life and joy unspeakable than there must be a way to find it. God is not a liar, nor is he the author of confusion, so we must be able to enter into abundant life and find that promise land of God’s rest.

To do this, we must first dare to go beyond what we have been told is true and uncover the truth for ourselves. We must go beyond the veil of religion and worldly literal understanding to uncover the mystery of God until this mystery is no more.
The key that is needed to do this is found in a simple verse of scripture that many of you know well.

“And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables” Mark 4: 11

The kingdom of God is not a place far, far, away, and you will soon understand it is not a literal kingdom at all. It is a mystery within us and mysteries are meant to be revealed. We must look beyond literal interpretation and embrace the spirit of the story itself. To understand the mystery of God and our very existence one must begin to see everything in scripture and in our waking life as a symbolic representation of our spiritual reality. The truth has been hidden. Our purpose is to find the truth for ourselves and then reveal this wonderful treasure to the world.

“To make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God”
Ephesians 3:9


The book of proverbs tells us, “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, but the honor of Kings is to search out a matter.” We must go beyond commonly held beliefs and traditions and enter into the holiest of holies. By finding the spirit of the story, whether in scripture or in our waking life, you will find the very essence of truth and love. We must see things through the eyes of God and this book will show you how.

You will soon see that the bible is not just a retelling of historical events or a collection of books written about specific individuals. The bible is in fact your story, it is your book. Every character is you, every situation is yours, and when you understand this you will begin to unravel the magnificent reality of you truly are.

“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.” 1 Corinthians 13:12

Jesus once said that if you continue in his word, which is truth, than that truth will set you free. This freedom is more wonderful than one can imagine. It is freedom from your fear, from shame, regret and doubt. It is freedom from insecurity, self-loathing and most importantly it is freedom from the ignorance that has trapped us all.

We have all been lied to, programmed since birth to believe we are someone we are not. We were told what to believe, how to act, who to vote for, what to wear, what to eat, what to say, what to think, who to friend, who to war against, who to embrace, who to shun, who to love, who to hate, when to cry, when to laugh, every aspect of our lives has been controlled. We have been slaves to our ignorance and this yolk has been heavy.

It is time to find the truth, to let the lies go, to embrace who you truly are and who God is. It is time to unlock the unlimited potential that waits within each and every one of us. It is time to see the scriptures in their true light. It is time to begin your journey out of the bondage and fear of religion and enter the heavenly gates of wisdom, which is the tree of life.

“Wisdom is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retains her.” Proverbs 3:18

As written in the second book of Timothy, understanding the scriptures makes you wise unto salvation through faith. However few know what salvation truly is, fewer still understand what one needs to be saved from and it most surely is not some a place of endless suffering as many have been taught.

We need to be saved from our ignorance. We need to be saved from the mystery that has us trapped in a world of darkness so we boldly enter into the light of possibility, faith and love.

There are many mysteries in scripture that will be revealed to us all when we seek, but the greatest of all mysteries is the mystery of who you are.

“Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All.”
Gospel of Thomas


It is time to rule and reign, to live the life you have always dreamed. It is time to learn who you truly are and what your life is for, to understand the mysteries of scripture until the mystery is no more. And those who dare to seek are the ones who find. So seek already!

You Are The Lights of The World



You Are The Lights of The World

The whole of Christianity revolves around one common belief and theme, and that is, THE ONLY WAY FOR SALVATION is to have faith and confess in Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World. Now there is debate over what that means, how one must accept Jesus, whether or not they need to be baptised, when they need to be baptised, what they must do to hang unto that salvation, whether those saved are predetermined, whether it is free will and one must choose, whether only a few are saved or all of humanity it saved. Now if you think that list is dizzying, just wait until you are told what else you have to do by many denominations within Christianity. Well the article I offer today, will prove it is never really “You” (who you think you are) that does the work, it is God. You will see as scripture states that everyone will eventually comes to the unity of the faith, knowledge of the truth and stature of the perfect man. Look to prove that scripture teaches the ultimate salvation of all of mankind is a simple task. Many, many scriptures prove this… below are a few.

Philippians 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Isaiah 45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

Romans 14:11For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

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

There is a growing number of people who believe, that GOD WILL FINISH HIS CREATION in VICTORY. Meaning, everyone will be saved. And as great as that is, I still believe many don’t know what it is they are saved from. Well, if you believe you are saved from place of infinite torture in a place called hell, I have news for you. You are in Hell in this world, when you are ignorant of who you are, who God is, and how God is in control of all things. Hell is the suffering caused by our ignorance, and yes we are saved from this mindset. But truly it is our carnal ego, (who we thought we were) that we need saving from. This is that anti-christ that is sitting on the throne of God declaring himself to be God, (who you thought you were, or think you are, your carnal ego).

Let me give you a short explanation. The Throne of God is your mind/heart. If you believe you have total free will, that means WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE is in fact sitting in the place of God, saying you are God and you are in complete control. The number of that beast is 666… Human beings are carbon based lifeforms, 6 protons, 6 electrons, 6 neutrons. 6 is the NUMBER OF NATURAL MAN. Most people know themselves after their physical body, and the physical world around them. They judge everything outwardly and THAT is the big problem. God is spirit, and the physical is merely a projection of what is happening within. Everything outside of us, is meant to lead us within to the source.

Romans 2
28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God


Life is not about what is outside of us, it is ALL ABOUT WHAT IS WITHIN US! And that is what this essay is about. That is the amazing truth that I hope to share. But if you have any questions on some of the topics I have mentioned so far, on this blog I have in-depth papers written, on the anti-christ, hell, salvation, etc… so for the purpose of time, after reading this paper please go to the search bar and search for these essays for more info.

I will state also, all of us have our ideas about the things of God. But truly God’s ways are past our finding out, human intellect and reasoning just doesn’t do the trick. So no degree from a Christian university makes one an authority on the things of God, a collar or title doesn’t make one an authority on the things of God. Only God makes one and authority on the things of God, and he saves this wonderful wisdom for those that seem foolish, for those who you would least expect to hear it from, he saves it for those who do not think highly of themselves, those He gives the desire to. The desire to “Know the truth regardless of the cost”… Then these things MUST CLICK WITHIN, they must be revealed. So how does one know if what I write or another writes is true? Well you SEEK God with a pure heart, asking God to lead, and guide. It is good to study papers, essays, and articles written by men, but TEST the spirits always, seek, and you shall find if they be true. (Including the ones I write, as I am NOT the authority, God WITHIN is.)

To let you know what I believe is simple. I am not like many, who say, you can believe whatever you want, live anyway you want and know salvation… I believe there is only ONE WAY to the Father and that is through the SON. You cannot be SAVED (free from the bondage of this world/carnal thoughts and the cares of this world) unless you come to the knowledge of who you TRULY ARE IN CHRIST, and when you do you will know CHRIST (The Word of God which is TRUTH, the Wisdom and Power of God).

You are saved by knowing the TRUTH, it is the TRUTH that sets you free. It isn’t until you have this wisdom that you will be saved (from yourself/ego).

But how does one come to know that he needs to be saved from the false image of who he thinks he is, when almost every denomination teaches you need to be saved from an event in the future, and that you are saved by an event in the future, meaning you are saved from Hell, and must wait for Jesus the Flesh man to return… I’m sorry to say, you will not find either in this life, regardless of how many preachers, priests, or religious teachers say “the time is close”…

There is so much division in Christianity today. Thousands of different beliefs, hundreds of different traditions, and each denomination seems to be at odds with the other. Each denomination claims to be right. Yet, scripture tells us…

1 Corinthians 1:10
…that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment


And with all the division we see among these churches everywhere, there are fewer subjects greeted with as much passion, and defense, as the divinity, or lack of divinity, of Jesus of Nazareth.

The only thing many seem to agree on, is JESUS CHRIST (the flesh man) being SAVIOR. But they have no idea what this REALLY MEANS.

They focus on the outward man, not the inward man. They put their faith in a man from two thousand years ago, and say THAT MAN IS MY SAVIOR, and never once consider what THAT MAN was truly teaching at all.

1) That as he is the light of the world, SO ARE WE
2) That we MUST do as he did, “become Christ”, death to ourself/ego and resurrection/enlightenment.
3) That he is the first among many
4) That he was the word revealed to men, and that we are living epistles to be read of all men
5) That we are to be ONE with God as Jesus was One with God


Seeing yourself as the SON of GOD, the same as Jesus the man, today is something that is taboo to even discuss. But even Jesus pointed out that even the scriptures teach this, when he brought Psalms 82 to his condemners attention.

Psalm 82:6
I said, “You are gods, And all of you are children of the Most High


We are ALL CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH, the problem is most refuse to believe it.

Now I don’t want to get ahead of myself here. But simply consider that we are all part of the same body. And if the same body, then the same as the head of the body. We are all ruled by God, as my fingers are ruled by the thoughts that precede them and force them to type these words. We are all ONE, AND THE SAME. When we understand this and see others as ourselves and do unto others as we want done to ourselves we will truly become free. LOVE is the KEY!

1 Peter 4:8
And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”


Notice the words, ABOVE ALL THINGS… love is the highest priority. Is that not evident in Jesus’ teaching?

Luke 10
27 So he answered and said, “ ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’”
28 And He said to him, “You have answered rightly; do this and you will live.”


But let me get right into this paper already!

Many say the Gospel of John Chapter One holds the key to Jesus’ divinity. So, this is what this paper will be about. And I pray it opens our eyes to what is really being said in these verses. Let us find out, who “Jesus Christ” is and how this man and his story relates to us.

We will do all this be dissecting the words in these verses of John Chapter One and pray the truth of it all opens up to us. As it is the GLORY OF GOD to CONCEAL (Hide) a thing. And Christ (TRUTH) comes (Is revealed) in the GLORY OF GOD (Hidden Truth).

Let’s begin:

JOHN 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.


“In the beginning” is straightforward, as the word “beginning” is the same word used in Genesis 1, when God created. However, the rest of the verse, and the definitions of these seemingly insignificant words like (was, with) open the door to an alternate view of this first verse.

The word “was” in this verse translates into “I WAS”, denoting past tense. To truly understand what we are talking about, we must understand that “The Word” is TRUTH.


Psalms 119 “The sum of thy Word is TRUTH”

So we are not talking about the literal man Jesus Christ here. The MAN Jesus Christ didn’t appear on scene until about two thousand years, or so, ago. In fact, in this Chapter, Jesus isn’t mentioned until later… It is the WORD/GOD’S TRUTH that is mentioned here. Which is TRUTH and SPIRIT, which was in the BEGINNING.

God is SPIRIT and TRUTH. “Your WORD oh Lord is TRUTH”

However, it is the next line, that can shake the foundations of what most have been taught, and it is simply looking at the translation of the word “WITH”.

In the Beginning was the TRUTH, and the TRUTH was “WITH” God.

Here is where, the door opens a bit more for us. The original translation of the word “WITH” (Pro/v) in Strongs Concordance DOES NOT translate to what we know “with” to mean, like I am “with” my wife, or “with my friends”… No, this word “with” translates into something very different.

WITH – 1) To the advantage of 2) towards 3) near – (In fact, the NAS translates this same word WITH as “about, according to, pertaining, in regard to, etc.) This changes the whole meaning of the first line in John.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Let’s translate that now: In the beginning was the TRUTH, and the TRUTH was (pertaining to God, to the advantage of God, according to God, in regard to God, about God.)

Now this actually makes sense if you think about it.

In other words, it means in the BEGINNING was the Truth and the TRUTH was ABOUT GOD. In beginning, The TRUTH of GOD was UNDERSTOOD.

Before ADAM’S (Mankind’s) Fall (becoming Ignorant of God’s Truth and Spirit) – Man knew the TRUTH.

The same was in the beginning with God.

Now this next line is where it becomes a bit more surreal. Because we MUST translate the word “WITH” the same way. Also, we find the word “SAME” translates differently as well. The Word “Same” (Ouutov) translates as “This or These” so really this next line, translates into this below.

This was in the beginning (according to, pertaining to, about) God

– So now we see the first two verses of John appear differently.

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God.

Translates INTO:


In the beginning was the TRUTH and the TRUTH was ABOUT GOD. The Truth was God. This was in the beginning about God.

Now to save time, I am going to simply place the Strongs Translations next to the words. So whenever you see a (……) you know in between the (…) is the translated word.

3 All things were made (came into existence) by (through) him (God); and without(apart, separate) him (God) was(came into existence) not any thing(no one) made(came into existence) that was made (came into existence).

Let’s translate:

All things came into existence through God, and apart from God nothing came into existence, that came into existence.

It’s pretty easy to see, that WE AREN’T talking about a literal MAN named Jesus here, we are talking about GOD, not a man from two thousand years ago. Since this TOOK PLACE IN THE BEGINNING.

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
translates to
In God was Life.

And, what is LIFE according to scripture?

Proverbs 3 calls it Wisdom and Understanding. “wisdom is a tree of life”

So,

In God was Wisdom and Understanding and this Wisdom and Understanding (of God’s Truth) was the light of men…

The LIGHT of all men, according to scripture, is the wisdom and understanding of God’s TRUTH (WORD) and in Matthew 5, we are called to let our light shine forth.

16 Let your light (Understanding of the TRUTH) so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven

I hope you can see, so far, there really is no mention of a LITERAL MAN from 2000 years ago.

Now before I go any further, I want to be clear, so those reading don’t get all salty, or should I say, lose their flavor… JESUS THE MAN revealed the WORD in HIM. The WORD was his LIFE (wisdom and understanding), so he was in fact the WORD of God. As we are called to be living Epistle, we also are to reveal the WORD of God… So you need to see, just because he was the first to reveal the WORD of God among many brethren, who “would do even greater things than he did”, doesn’t make Jesus the man, someone who is completely different from us, it makes him…

The first-born among many brethren, the first-born among the dead. A PATTERN, which is why we must do as he did. The good news is, I believe God predetermined all of it, so none can fail.

Romans 8:29
For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.


But back to JOHN’S GOSPEL… IN CHAPTER ONE, the scriptures are NOT speaking about a LITERAL MAN as many have been taught. We are talking about THAT WORD that was IN THE MAN JESUS.

2 Corinthians 5:19
that is, that God WAS IN Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation


Notice God is IN, God’s ANNOINTED to reconcile the world (Lusts of the flesh, lusts of the eyes, the pride of life) to HIMSELF (God) – This is all about GOD BECOMING ALL IN ALL. No longer hidden from his creation, but ONE with his creation.

In him (God) was life; and the life (understanding and wisdom) was the light of MEN(plural).

Notice the word MEN… The scripture speaks of God’s LIFE being the LIGHT OF MEN (MANKIND). It really is stating that God’s TRUTH (word) when understood by US helps others to know God, which is in HEAVEN (Which we all know by now, is within us all)

5 And the light shineth (became evident, bring forth light) in(by) darkness(ignorance); and the darkness comprehended(layed hold, took possession) it not.

This last verse, HAS NOTHING to do with the truth NOT being understood by the Ignorant… Rather, this last verse truly translated into…

And the Wisdom and Understanding of God’s Truth became evident by the ignorance of it. And the ignorant didn’t lay hold of it, or take possession and own it.

This is a beautiful picture of the parable of the BLIND man who Jesus saw outside the TEMPLE. Key words here being “OUTSIDE the TEMPLE”. When you exist OUTSIDE the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, you too are blind (ignorant of the truth)…

But back to my point. When Jesus and the disciples saw this BLIND MAN, the disciples asked whose fault it was that he was born Blind. Jesus responded it was no one’s fault, it was so GOD could be glorified, when he sees.

You see we were ignorant of God’s truth for one reason, so God’s truth could become evident because we first became ignorant of it… It is sort of like knowing the LIGHT because you first knew darkness.

How else would we learn? Once again, this first chapter in John, seems to be talking about God and US (humanity as a whole) and not about ONE literal man from 2000 years ago.

6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

These last verses speak of HOW WE FIRST HEAR about God’s truth.

It is through John, (symbolic of The Law and the Prophets) that bears witness of GOD’S TRUTH (LIGHT), but the man who TESTIFIES of GOD’S TRUTH, that is the LIGHT OF ALL MEN, is NOT GOD’S TRUTH.

You see, we should never mistake the messenger for the message. We should never mistake the LAW for LIFE, or a Man for God’s TRUTH. Man can simply bear witness of the TRUTH, the MAN is NOT THE TRUTH, but it is through the Man, that the TRUTH is revealed. The MAN cannot be the TRUTH, the TRUTH can only be IN (within the thoughts) MAN.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

This line clearly isn’t speaking about the literal world. Because the literal earth, to my understanding, has no ability to reason. So the WORLD must be an allegory of carnal man’s thoughts. For in 1 John, we see ALL THAT IS IN THE WORLD.

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.


The “world” is our Carnal EGO.

John 12:31
Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.


Remember, Judgment begins at the HOUSE OF GOD. We are the house of God. Our Souls, our Sense of being, our thoughts of individuality (in-division-and duality) – remember Christ COMES (revealed) into the WORLD (our ego) to save the WORLD (our ego)

“What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world, and lose his soul?”

So, God was, and is, IN US, and WE came into existence through God, but We didn’t know God (we didn’t have his wisdom and understanding)

But this is where it gets SURREAL… The translations below for the words (came, unto, received) open up a whole new idea about what this next verse means.

11 He (God) came (appeared, became known) unto (for, to) his own (pertaining to one’s self), and his own (pertaining to one’s self) received (accepted, joined to) him (God) not.

Let be clear about what this verse means to me. I will translate into my own words below.

God appeared for Himself, God appeared to Himself, But God did not accept God as Himself.

John 1, is not dealing with a literal man, but John 1 is speaking about the creation of all. John 1 is dealing with US, all of HUMANITY.

We have lost our understanding and wisdom of who, and what we are. And, the purpose of that, is so the TRUTH of GOD (the mystery of existence, the hope of Glory, which is CHRIST IN YOU) could be known.

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

The word RECEIVE (Lamba/Nw) here in GREEK, means to take what is one’s own, to take to one’s self, to make one’s own.

So, as MANY as TOOK HOLD OF WHAT IS THEIR, As MANY as BELIEVED the TRUTH of God and who they were, become SONS OF GOD.

It goes to explain, this has life and truth has nothing to do with Flesh and Blood, literal man or a single man, it has to do with being BORN FROM ABOVE as God’s beloved. He gives US (humanity as a whole) power to become the SONS OF GOD…

Now let me put that in perspective for you… As a puppy is a child of a dog and becomes a dog. As a kitty is a child of a cat and it too becomes a cat…. So is a SON OF GOD, offspring of GOD and becomes a god.

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


Once we believe the TRUTH of God and who we are, then we too become THE TRUTH as JESUS DID.

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.


Jesus was the First born among MANY BRETHREN… He was and is the word, as we too become LIVING EPISTLES to be read of all men. He is the Light of the World, and we too become the same.

“YE ARE THE LIGHTS OF THE WORLD”

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt (tabernacles/dwell) among (IN, BY, WITH) us, (and we beheld (Contemplate) his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

The instant we BELIEVE THE TRUTH, the WORD IS MADE FLESH in US. And we test the spirits this way, those that say “Christ is come (revealed) in the Flesh” is of God. 🙂

The TRUTH comes into existence through US, and God lives IN US, BY US, WITH US, and we Contemplate his Glory as the Only Child of God, full of grace and truth.

In closing, I would like to bring attention that no one ever sees God, they are simply made aware of God.

18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

It is the SON (Those RISEN WITH CHRIST to understand the TRUTH) that declare God…

And for those who wonder what the BOSOM of God is, they need look no further than the literal world, where we too were nursed with milk by our Mothers. The Bosom is the place where God reveals himself through us, to us, by us, for us… So that we all become ONE.
