Passover Is Here! Everything Is About To Change Again.

Happy PASSOVER! This is one of the most important Feasts. This YEAR something truly amazing is coming out of it. If you haven’t seen this eye opening video I shared on YouTube last week, I encourage all of you to do so now. BIG CHANGE is coming for us all. It was written in the stars.

Is there a connection to the September 23, 2017 Revelation 12 sign? Does this Passover fulfill an end times prophecy in the Book Of Daniel? Is the Final Harvest upon us?

THIS Is BIG! Please enjoy and do Like, Comment, Share, and Subscribe. Much love Jacob #Passover #BuckleUp #FinalHarvest

The SIMULATION Ending? “Daft Punk & The Two Men In the Field”

Techno fans everywhere, and more so, are upset at hearing the Parisian Band known as DAFT PUNK has broken up. The TWIN “Robots”, as they were known, were not just considered trail blazing geniuses in the Music Industry, there was something much more mysterious about this group.

The Masterpiece soundtrack for the Disney Ai simulated dystopian world sequel known as TRON Legacy, was heralded as more than an operatic Oscar worthy soundtrack but a next level “spiritual” experience.

Really though? Well, spiritual for this world perhaps. You see I believe God uses everyone, whether well or foul intentioned to reveal his Masterpiece for you, even when that paint piece seems sloppy. And I am not at all calling Daft Punk sloppy, I’m a fan.

And yet, who are they really? I mean, I’m not a super fan, I haven’t tried tracking down who is under the silver and gold robot mask, but to the average fan they are a mystery.

Almost as much a mystery as why the Twin Robot group decided the very last image/logo they would share together would be the played out, tired ALL SEEING EYE of Providence found within the Light Emanating from within the Pyramid formed by their Gold and Silver Hands.

You know, the sign all the big wigs and celebrities do for pictures to prove they are in the secret powerful spooky group you are not.

I also found it strange, they began their departure announcement Viral Video “Epilogue”with a simple black screen with the exact date and time they uploaded the video, that’s some forward thinking there but nothing special right?

Do the numbers 02/22/21 mean anything to you? Is there, say, a gematria meaning here, or a bible code? I jest, but not really. 22221. Looks weird right. Well let’s see….

The second book of Exodus perhaps, chapter 22 verse 21 which declares we must not mistreat or oppress foreigners, for we were foreigners in EGYPT as well. These are under a set of laws dealing with property rights, found after being set free perhaps. Been talking a lot about the Exodus lately, haven’t we? Is it time to be set free?

22221 … is it just the date and time they uploaded?

Or is it from the second oldest holy book in Islam known as the Zabur which are Psalms whose 22 chapter and 21 verse reads “Save me from the Lions mouth. Yes, from the horns of the wild oxen you have answered me.”

Or could it a deeper meaning? 22221 – a double minded person is unstable in all their ways. Until the 2 are no longer 2 but ONE!

Jesus said that He and His Father were One. That He was in God and that God was in Him. Then he went unto say that we are the same. He prayed that we would be ONE as they were One. For God IS One. Jesus understood that God gave him HIS desires, he explained that HE could only say and do what God, who was Within Him and He was within, orchestrated.

It is that picture of the two sets of footprints in the sand that miraculously become one. The famous poster that reads, when you see one set of prints it’s because God was carrying you. And I believe it is high time for us to lay down our ideas and our egos, to lay down our ignorant life in this world for the life that is found as Christ in You. The 2 2 2 2 become 1. Not our will but Gods in our life.

Regardless, of what those number really mean, it captured my attention. I am “prisoner” of Christ after all 😉

So much so, after watching their “Epilogue” video play out, I knew I would be discussing it on the show I aired last night on YouTube, whose link is below and you should watch it if you haven’t, or watch it with new eyes yet again.

As I discussed the multiple synchronicities found all around the same time as Daft Punk breaking up, Apophis, The movie Chaos Walking, the Pope’s visit to the ziggurat (ancient alien temple no less) and much much more. The segment where I showcased their farewell video was perhaps most encouraging of all.

Because regardless of whether or not Daft Punk is in the “know” or not, it doesn’t matter. Because God works everything together according to His will and our greater good, and everything means something when seen through the eyes of faith.

And there is MUCH to see in this video, which puts Wandavision’s Chaos Magic simulation in a new light when seeing everything through the Mosaic of the greatest Motion Picture of all times called OUR LIFE!

And so tell us the meaning behind the break up. Daft Punk we know there is more to the story, and whether or not people know your last video said it all.

In their latest viral video which depicted the Two “Twin Robot” Artists going their separate ways. They began together much like they were one, but soon the silver robot would no longer continue, next a timer was set and his Gold Robot twin brother watched as he exploded in the air. Destroyed as to never again appear, as the Other in Gold continues on into the Setting sun. A true rapturous moment, and what brought to my mind a very power scripture.

One that is very misunderstood. In their video Two men were in one field, one was taken, one is left. There is so much for you all to find my friends and I’m excited to be with you for this day.

And if haven’t seen my below YouTube video, where all of these timely breadcrumbs are laid out for you. You MUST today. Because the day we are in is A BEAuTIFUL ONE and while bad religion and politicians and more have done all they can to tear apart, God is bringing those into his Kingdom of Righteousness, Peace and Joy as One. Because the Lord God is ONE!

So I hope you enjoyed this short article, please let me know in the comment section what you think, and more importantly what it all means 🙂

Below is the LINK for my video last night, I pray it encourages you and helps you to not be so scared anymore. The Lord is Our Refuge when Chaos Comes.

(Enjoy this poem I wrote in 2015 too)

“One selfless decision can erase the division caused by a life of selfish greed.

Even a proud man when his hat is in hand is counted a humbled spirit indeed.

Even the fool allows wisdom to rule when words from his tongue he keeps.

Even the most doubtful shows great faith by the act of simply planting a seed.

Even the most hateful can become grateful when someone finally shows them the love they need.

You see, all it take is one thing, to change everything, for you, and for me!

The Power of Judgment! Jesus’s Secret Teaching Revealed.

Good evening everyone,

While, this YouTube video doesn’t uncover any new manuscript or gospel, it does however reveal the truth about what it means to “Judge Not.”

This below passage found in the Gospel of Matthew may seem cut and dry, well this video will put some Life (Christ) into it. Christ the Power and Wisdom of God that is.

Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Matthew 7:1-2 =KJV

Please do enjoy this encouraging video and do share it with people who cannot see the sunrise above the dark that they are in. Perhaps it will help them to see that they too can and will Shine Bright in Christ’s Light.

Who Is Jesus’s Mother, Brother and Sister Really? It could be YOU – A video

Hello my friends,

In the Gospel of Mark chapter 3:34,35 Jesus is told his Mother and Brothers are waiting to see him … however Jesus responded in a curious way.

And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren? And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
Mark 3:32-35

Yet, there is an even deeper meaning to what Jesus was saying. Enjoy my most recent YouTube video to find out what that is. Please do share, like, and comment it helps others find what you have found and allows me to reach more people for the Lord, whose Mother, Brother, and Sister May be closer than you think. Much love Jacob

The Mark Of The Beast Revealed

For hundreds of years bible scholars and prophecy “experts” have explained what they believe the Mark of the Beast is. They have made claims that this is a barcode, a rfid chip, or nanotechnology that can track you and more.

Sadly, this has become an idea that is widely accepted as “truth” around the world. However, there is much more to this story than meets the eye. In this eye opening video you will find just how devious the devil can be but it is my sincere belief this video will help set you free from their lies we’ve been taught and believe.

So buckle up, sit back, relax and pray for the truth no matter what the cost. I know this video will challenge you and bless you beyond what you have been told about this infamous passage from Revelation Chapter 13.

FAITH! The incredible superpower we all have!

Good morning everyone,

This is a video I shared recently on Youtube. The subject is so very important and understanding how to harness the power of faith and direct it properly is why I am sharing this video with all of you. Faith makes you whole after all. In the Book of Proverbs, chapter 23, verse 7 it is recorded that “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he”. What we believe/know about ourselves and the world becomes our reality whether we like it or not. The Strong’s definition of Faith is a very revealing one, faith is the “conviction of the truth of anything”. This is more than just believing, this is CONVICTION which means you are prisoner to this understanding whether true or not, your faith makes it real for you. You can either be a prisoner of this world or a prisoner for Christ (which is the Power and Wisdom of God). It’s time to be grounded and settled in a Faith that is rooted in love, joy, peace, abundance and power. So join me by watching this short video and please do Subscribe to my Youtube channel, check the notification bell for all videos and share this around if it has been a blessing to you. I love you much, Jacob

RADICAL FAITH

FAITH MAKES YOU WHOLE

The days we find ourselves in today are perhaps the most concerning to us all. Never before has there seemed to be so much on the line. Never before has there been so much uncertainty. Most importantly, never before has there been such a opportunity for us all to grow into the life we all have been purposed for. Truly, the days we find ourselves in today are perhaps the greatest days there have ever been.

A day when we see the Promise Land… no longer far off… but in our grasp.

I often use the example of giving birth to describe spiritual breakthrough. What better example is there for us? In fact even the scriptures teach us that we shall learn about spiritual things by those physical things surrounding us.

Romans 1:20
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse

Your experiences and your surroundings are your greatest teachers. From the car you drive, where you live, to what is growing in your backyard, what kind of neighbors you have, how you dress, everything in your life, names, addresses, people, animals, everything you see and experience is a physical representation of what is going on within you spiritually. I know that sounds far out, but start looking for the road map within your life and you will be amazed. And what better allegory is there for us all to learn from, then giving birth?

Giving birth is indeed one of our greatest lessons to learn from. Why do you think we are told to be “born again”? Why does Paul speak about travailing in birth until Christ is formed in you?

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

The answer is simple, we are all PREGNANT WITH POSSIBILITY! And d-day is here… delivery day that is. 🙂 But let’s look a bit more into the womb of scripture.

Have you ever questioned why there are so many “barren wombs” described in scripture? Have you ever wondered why one of the greatest miracles written about has to do with a “virgin birth”? This is all allegory for us to learn from. The child that is born, who has the government of the world on his shoulders is the child that is born WITHIN YOU! It is the true you! It is the Christ In You, as You. This is the hope of Glory, Christ In you! Until, as Paul writes, Christ is formed in you.

There is so much symbolism that revolves around “birth” that it is hard to avoid. 40 is the number of testing and trying many state. 40 years in the wilderness, 40 days of temptation, 40-year-old Kings, Kings ruling for 40 years… The number 40 is repeated again and again, and at the end of the 40 days, or 40 years, something great always happens. Israel enters the promise land, Jesus overcomes his time of temptation, etc, etc… And the physical application is as wonderful, for it takes 40 weeks for a typical pregnancy to come full term. We also see the trimester represented in the 3 day resurrection.

So why all of this emphasis on proving the significance of pregnancy? Why am I trying to show you that physical birth is a great lesson we should all pay close attention to? The reason is simple, we are all about to give birth.

And what happens right before we give birth? It hurts… It hurts real bad… to the point that you want it all to end. It hurts so bad you feel like you would rather die than give birth to the very thing you have waited for, for nine months. And yet, after that child is born, your suffering is not counted as worthy to be compared to the glory that you now have in your loving arms.

John 16:21
A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world

This is such a great lesson for us all. Because life has been so, so very hard for so many of us. We try so hard and we step out in faith and yet we still struggle, we still suffer, we still are condemned, attacked, and forced to face great hardship. For many, it can get so hard you just want to give up… just like that woman when her hour of delivery is come.

The woman we see here, is YOUR SOUL! Your sense of being, your understanding, your intellect, whatever you want to call it. The woman is ALL OF US… and right, for many reason, we find ourselves dealing with a good amount of sorrow and uncertainty. We have all gone through things before, but now it feels different. Now the stakes seem so much higher. This, mark me, is for good reason. The reason is, the stakes ARE HIGHER THAN BEFORE! BECAUSE OUR TIME HAS COME!

In addition, I promise you once that Child (The Second You, The Born Again You, The Hopeful you, The Faith-filled You, The ChristInYou)… once this new life of yours is born, you will have JOY UNSPEAKABLE! You will see that nothing shall be impossible to you with FAITH! And for once in your life, you will have the FAITH to back up the belief in faith.

Matthew 17:20
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.

Because if you are truly honest with yourself, you may say you have FAITH! But if you REALLY are honest with yourself, you will see you still suffer because your faith is not yet whole and complete.

It is truly one thing to say you have faith and another thing to actually see it at work in your day-to-day. A lack of faith is what has been the cause of our suffering. Because if we had faith and it was at work in us, regardless of what came our way, we would not doubt, we would have no fear, we would trust that everything is working together for our greater good. We all know tha scripture in Romans that teaches us, that “all things work together” but there is evidence of this throughout the scriptures.

Do you think Joseph when he was rejected, abused, cast into a pit to die, then sold off into slavery, only to rise above his station to then be accused of a crime he did not commit, be thrown into jail, only to rise against his station again and be beaten for his interpretation… Do you think Joseph had any real idea of what God had planned for him? Well, if truth be told… HE SURE DID! He dreamed about it, spoke about the sun, the moon, the stars, all bowing before him. His brothers knew he was predestined for greatness, his father knew Joseph was special which is why he gave him that wondrous coat of many colors (a pledge from God, a covenant, a covering)… So Joseph knew, others knew, but I guarantee like you and me, each time Joseph was cast down, each time things got harder and worse, I GUARANTEE Joseph worried and had fear, as we had fear and worry. But in the end, JOSEPH RULED EGYPT, and we too SHALL RULE our own personal EGYPTS! The very place we were once enslaved in, the very place we were accused, condemned, imprisoned, we shall RULE! And all those that did us wrong, we too will be given the change to FORGIVE and FEED THEM the truth that set us free and shall also set them free.

We, like Joseph have been storing up the treasure of wheat in our store house. And our barns are filled with understanding and truth so we are not going to suffer during this famine (of truth) we see in the land. We laid up this treasure as we have suffered through our lives, and now is the time when those who persecuted us, who turned their backs on us, will return to us seeking what we have had all along… FAITH and UNDERSTANDING.

Matthew 6:20
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal

A QUICK note on this scripture… The Treasure that we are laying up, is Wisdom, which is a tree of life, it is our salvation, our hope, and this Wisdom is stored in the Kingdom, which is within us, and it is our Righteousness, Peace and Joy, and POWER of the Holy Ghost, it is CHRIST! The thieves cannot break in and steal it away from us… Remember the Thieves according to scripture are those that do not know the gospel, the Thieves are those that try to get into the Kingdom other ways.

John 10:1
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.

We must enter the Sheepfold… the place where the Sheep enter to be sacrificed, we must DIE TO OUR EGO to be born again into the Life of Christ (power and wisdom of God). So it is impossible for a Thief (those who do not know the truth, and believe in lies and teach lies) to steal the treasure that we have stored.

Many of you believe yourselves to be poor, weak, insignificant. You say things like, who am I? I am fooling myself to believe I somehow have greater insight than others, look at my life, I am lost, I am hurting, HOW CAN I BE STORING ANYTHING UP… MUCH LESS TREASURE!

Well let me show you, how WHEAT (truth) is gathered and stored. For the WHEAT is who we are at heart! the children of the kingdom, and our glory is not known until we are picked, shaken, beat, ground, dried, and then set aside until an appointed time.

While we slept (a symbol of being ignorant of what is really going on) and enemy (our ego/works/man’s ways) planted tares (lies) along with the wheat. And our lives have been spent with both the truth of who we are, and the lie of who we think we are, growing up together within us. And it isn’t until the wheat is fully matured, filled with seeds in its head, that it can be known from the tares. And it is my firm belief, that this time of harvest is now.

Matthew 13:30
Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn

This process we have been through has been a painful one. The lies had to be burned away, but our wheat (our true nature) was never harmed. We have been through the storms, we have been through the winepress, ground under the wheat stone, we have been set aside for a time appointed, a time that we have doubted we would ever see. But now that time is here, nearer than ever before, and it is our faith that will bring us home.

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

Now is indeed the time for us to WAKE UP out of our slump, cast aside our fears and worries for tomorrow. How many times are we going to recite those scriptures that command us to “take no thought for tomorrow”, and then in the next breath we speak about our fears of what tomorrow may bring. It is time for us to have FAITH! To trust and fully believe that THERE IS A GOD! TO BE STILL AND KNOW GOD! To trust that God’s arm is not slack that it cannot save… To BELIEVE that God’s creation is finished in VICTORY! And we are that firststripe that the Master will pick from the vine to prove how holy the rest of creation will be.

We already know Salvation is not about being saved from what will happen after we physically die. We know Salvation is being delivered from our own fears, worries and lust our carnal ego demands. This is what we are being saved from. And the only way to do this, is with FAITH!

2 Timothy 3:15
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith

It is IMPOSSIBLE for us to be set free and to rule and reign without faith! It is IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD WITHOUT FAITH!

Really think about that for a second… If God is pleased, you are pleased, if God is at peace with you, you are at peace with God… Without Faith it is impossible for you to know joy!

Even though we have had seasons of pain and hardship, even though now it seems our troubles are as the sands of the sea, WE HAVE BEEN KEPT BY THE POWER OF GOD THROUGH FAITH UNTO SALVATION… which is ready to be revealed in our lives!

1 Peter 1:4-6
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations

Ask yourself, how are the sick in scripture healed?

FAITH!

How are the blind given sight? How are the deaf given sound? How do the lame walk? How do the dead raise? How did David kill Goliath? How did the walls of Jericho fall? How were kingdom’s overthrown and risen up? How were enemies defeated and children birthed from barren wombs? How is a man justified? How is a man saved? How is anything possible at all?

FAITH!

And what is FAITH?

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen

Faith is made from the very things we hope for, what we hope for is what makes up our faith… and our Faith is the evidence of these things. In other words, what we have hoped for, the peace and salvation we wish to have, we will have, and our FAITH is the evidence that this is true… In other words, we wouldn’t hope for it, if it was beyond our reach. BECAUSE GOD IS THE ONE WHO GAVE US THAT DESIRE TO BEGIN WITH!

So it is time that you put away your fears, and cut off the flow of negativity from your tongue. It is time to trust God, to know you are about to give birth, that you are about to be free. It is time to HAVE FAITH like never before! A faith in God so strong that it doesn’t matter who believes or doesn’t believe in you, it doesn’t matter how big your troubles seem to be!

Romans 3:3
For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

We shall know the incredible joy of hope, we shall taste the perfection of peace and never let it go again. Because we have chosen FAITH!

Romans 5:1
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ

And if you believe your faith is weak, or you wish you could find faith in the midst of this final hour of travail… THEN ASK FOR IT! But when you ask, HAVE FAITH that your faith will be increased!

James 1:6
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed

Our problem has always been our wavering, not really standing on that firm foundation of Faith. This is why we have suffered for so long, but now we have learned that our wavering has produced our pain and we are choosing a new path! One where FAITH is our breastplate… (The breastplate SHIELDS your HEART 🙂 ), one where we know we cannot faith! And by knowing this, we finally enjoy the moment!

“LORD” (which literally means, the existing one) INCREASE OUR FAITH!

Luke 17:5
And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.

And when our faith is increased, and when we stand solely on our faith, we will finally be whole!

Luke 17:19
And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole

The day of your deliverance is here, you have permission to enter in, and all it takes is believing that you can… and you will regardless of what you believe or have believed, because THIS WORD WILL NOT RETURN VOID!

IN THE WORLD NOT OF IT



IN THE WORLD NOT OF IT

The other night I was standing on my deck and staring up at the stars. It was so quiet and it was the perfect place for a much-needed retreat away from four kids, a dog, cat, the many responsibilities that go along with parenthood and keeping a nice home, and especially our circumstances. I find these moments are essential for our spiritual and emotional growth. If we don’t find time for ourselves where we can simply rest our minds from the hustle and bustle of this world, then we will most certainly not be able to hear that still silent voice within.

Remember God’s voice is never found in the storm, but it is found after all the dust has settled in the quiet following the storm. Elijah is perfect example of this and look at the progression of what leads to what. The mountain, wind, earthquake, and fire all represent something spiritual…

1 Kings 19:11-13
11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: 12And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice


Like Elijah when trouble comes our way when want to run to the Mountain of God to hear from God. The Mountain of course being a symbol of going higher in the spirit. But even though we seek God, we rarely do we hear God’s voice at first. We may even feel as if God has passed us by. In fact, as we search for a way out of our trouble, we may find more trouble come our way. I’m sure Elijah didn’t want to have to deal with the strong wind, earthquake and fire he met before hearing from God… But it is truly these symbolic events that lead us to the very place we are trying to find to begin with. Our trouble prepares us, tests us, breaks us, and as fire purges we also are cleansed by the very things that seem to hurt us the most… Which is why we are told to rejoice in our sufferings. Because it is producing something that is far more important within us. And I believe that is faith!

And after the ground beneath has seemed to break apart, and AFTER the burning pain of fear and worry and dread leaves us broken, we are lift with only the option of trusting God’s provision… When we have nothing else, when there is no where else for us to turn, when every self effort has been spent, THAT IS WHEN WE HEAR THE VOICE!

12And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice

I really want to encourage you all and remind you all that the storms of our lives, are the very things that MUST happen to open us up to the wonderful gospel of faith! Trust me when I say, I wish this wasn’t the case. I wish I didn’t have to suffer, I wish I didn’t have regret, fear, worry, insecurity, and more. I wish I didn’t have to toss and turns at nights worrying about what I am going to do now that trouble and hardship has found me. But I can only blame myself for not having the faith to TRUST GOD! And when I say “myself” of course I mean my carnal ego, my enemy, my adversary. And so my suffering leads me to turn my faith away from self effort and put it back where it belongs… GOD.

So, if not for these troubles, if not for being rejected, mocked, abused, sick, unemployed, mistreated… if not for having my back against the wall and my heart on the floor, if not for feeling totally weak and unable to deliver me or my family from our circumstances… I WOULD NEVER RELY COMPLETELY ON GOD AND GOD’S PROVISION!

There is but one way into the Kingdom (Reign) of God (Love, Righteousness, Peace, Joy, Wisdom, Power, Life)… And that one way into the Kingdom of God is TRIBULATION.

Acts 14:22
Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.


So our trials, though that be many, are in fact the greatest avenues to find the very freedom and peace we hope for. Our trials are there to remind us to take our eyes off our own strength and to cast away our thoughts of fear and to put our eyes and faith on God who is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.

And if truth be told, the quickest way to get our eyes and hope back where it belongs is to endure hardship, to be tested, and taken out of our comfort zone.

It is then we cry out to God, and beg for his deliverance. It is in our hard times that we seek God the most, this is true for believer and non-believer. In the end, when troubles mount like a tsunami wave, when all hope seems lost and our efforts cannot change a thing, believer and non-believer alike will cry out to God. And God is magnified in their hearts, and when deliverance comes the truth of God’s provision is shared with others. And if we lose a loved one, and our prayers aren’t answered, we usually find that if they were answered we would never have learned all we did and become all we became because of those circumstances not changing.

Psalm 34:3-5
3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed


Notice, what we are delivered from… OUR FEAR!

It is our fear that we aren’t going to make it, that we aren’t good enough, liked enough, treated right… it is our fear in so many things that causes the torment in our heart.

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.


And as I have written so many times before, GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR… And if our thoughts (spirit) of Fear aren’t from God, then they are a creation of our egotistical carnal mind. And the carnal ego man is OF this world, God is not. Which is why tribulation comes, because the ego-man must be overcome. The belief and faith in Man’s works must be destroyed, man must enter into God’s rest and that rest comes from knowing God is in control.

When you know God is in control, you may be in this world, but you are no longer OF this world.

John 8:23
And He said to them, “You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.


Now I titled this article, “In the world not of it” for good reason. I began this essay with the story of me on my deck looking into the stars. Now I had been in prayer for weeks to “hear” from God, if you will. I had been seeking insight into my situation, into why I still had so many fears and worries when I knew deep down that it was only causing me pain. I hadn’t had any dramatic revelation (revealing) of scripture in a while. Not for lack of trying or seeking. But you can’t force revelation, you can’t make it happen, it either comes or it doesn’t. In my experience it always comes AFTER THE STORM.

When your head is filled with the troubles that surround you. You can go to the mountain like Elijah, scream out to God, seek God all you want, but you won’t find God in the midst of your troubles, you will find and hear God in the moment you least expect it. For me that moment was when walking out onto that deck and looking up into the stars.

Immediately the scripture about not being “Of this world” came to mind. I realized when I suffered, when I had great fear and worry that I was most definitely OF THIS WORLD… meaning I was a product of this world. And when I say “the world” I don’t mean planet earth, I mean OUR LUSTS! Because that is all that is found IN THE WORLD.

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


Just as Fear is not of God, neither is the torment that arises out of being a product of these lusts/fears/negative emotions.

Now what came to mind as I stood there on the deck was not anything earth shattering, but it was no less profound. And how it came was like a still small voice indeed. First I staring into the stars and then a simple thought came to mind. And that thought led to another thought and so on and so on.

I realized what being OF THE WORLD means, and what IN THE WORLD means. Because you can be IN something without being OF it. You can go swimming and be in the water and not be a product of the water itself. You can be in a world of trouble but you don’t need to become a product of that trouble. In this world WE WILL HAVE TRIALS AND TRIBULATION but we don’t have to become products of it, we can overcome that urge!

In this WORLD we will have hard times, BUT we don’t have to become a product of it. We may have depressing circumstances in our lives, but we DON’T need to become depressed because of it. We can Overcome the WORLD (LUST)!

John 16:33
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”


It is a sure bet as Jesus said in this above passage, that IN THE WORLD we WILL have tribulation… but instead of letting our circumstances define us, change us, and make us into the miserable people who are OF their circumstance, we can be of GOOD CHEER and have faith because we too can and will overcome the world (lusts), because the ONE within us has already done the same.

NOW WHO ARE YOU, REALLY?

Who you THINK you are is a product OF this world… But who you truly are IN CHRIST is so much GREATER than the world (your lusts). The LIFE and TRUTH of who you are is ALWAYS GREATER than the lusts that are at war with you in this world.

1 John 4
4 YOU ARE OF GOD, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is GREATER THAN HE WHO IS IN THIS WORLD.


Those first four words… YOU ARE OF GOD, are four words you should take to heart. Later John writes, You are not OF the world… meaning people we are OF GOD, we are a product of God, we come from God, we are an extension of God, we are God’s children… we are NOT OF THIS WORLD! Meaning we are not a product of our lusts or emotions, we are not an extension of our lusts of emotions, we are not OUR LUSTS AND EMOTIONS… WE ARE OF GOD! Can you imagine what can be accomplished within you if you REALLY BELIEVED THIS?

However, most people don’t REALLY believe that… And everytime we leave that truth, everytime we leave our heavenly habitation (Godly mindset) we are tricked into believing we are OF THE WORLD (our lusts)… And WHEN we fall into that trap, we begin to believe the nonsense our carnal ego has been conditioned to feed us. We start thinking we are good for nothing (because we think we are products of nothing), we think we are worthless and horrible and weak (because we think we are products of such)… Whatever a person believes they become. When you say you are worthless you confess that you are not OF GOD, but of the world (your lusts). And you begin to talk like you are OF THE WORLD. You begin to act like you are OF THE WORLD. And ultimately, in a sense, you become a PRODUCT of the world (your lusts) instead of risings above the circumstances IN THE WORLD.

Some people deal with their troubles better than others. Some rise above hardship and some don’t. When people become addicted to drugs, or alcohol, when they give in to suicidal thoughts, or become abusers, it is because they have become a PRODUCT OF their LUSTS. They did not overcome the world (lusts/pains/emotions/fears/etc) they became OF the world. They felt ugly on the inside, agreed with that lie, and manifested the lie into their life, becoming the very thing they hate the most.

BUT WE DON’T NEED TO GO DOWN THIS PATH! We are OF GOD not of this world.

4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. 6 We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error

Who we TRULY are WITHIN (our true nature/spirit) is always greater than who we begin to think we are, or who people say we are. Which is why we will overcome this world (our lusts).

YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES DO NOT DEFINE YOU unless you let them! YOUR FEARS DON’T RULE YOU unless you let them!

We have been tricked into seeing all that is wrong and putting faith in the “worst case situation”, instead of seeing all that is right in our lives and putting faith in all the good to come. Now if that isn’t a fate created in the depths of hell (our ignorant suffering) I don’t know what is.

John 1:10
He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.


You can look at this above passage as the literal world was created by Jesus, or you can see that “as he is so are we IN THIS WORLD” and begin to understand that WE ARE IN THIS WORLD (our lusts) and this world (our lusts) was made through us (our creative power), and the “world” (Our ego when a product of our lusts) do not KNOW THE TRUTH OF WHO WE ARE and have always been, which is why we suffer… because we have become PRODUCTS of our lusts, we have become people OF THIS WORLD, instead of people OF GOD!

If it sounds like there are two distinct people within us, the TRUE US and the US WE BEGAN TO BELIEVE OURSELVES TO BE… that is because THERE ARE! The canon of scripture is filled with this truth! And this double minded man is unstable in all his ways, a house divided with fall… in other words as long as these two natures are at war we will not be able to overcome this world (lusts).

Genesis 25:23
And the LORD said to her: “Two nations are in your womb, Two peoples shall be separated from your body; One people shall be stronger than the other, And the older shall serve the younger.”


There are two distinct people within us, THE CHRIST MAN and the EGO MAN, the SON OF GOD and the SON OF MAN. Two in one bed if you will. The good news is THE FIRST shall be LAST! In other words, who we think we are now will DECREASE and who we truly are is increasing each and every moment of every day!

John 3:30
He must increase, but I must decrease.


The ONE (of the world) must decrease and become the (ONE of God)!

And the ONE OF THE WORLD decreases the instant we put our trust and hope in the Father and in the plan! And I know this is a hard thing to do. This is why it is so important for you to find those precious moments of peace away from the hustle and bustle of your life, as I did on my deck.

It is so important to calm your mind and put your thoughts back on track. Focus on the good instead of the bad, don’t let your fear become your life, let your life overcome your fear by NOT BEING OF THE WORLD while you are IN THE WORLD!

There is a good reason why scripture tells us to think on GOOD THINGS. Because we are what we think! We become what we believe!

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.


THINK ON THESE THINGS… good reports not bad, hope not sad, life not death, rising above all the mess! Remember who you truly are… and what you are not… YOU ARE OF GOD LITTLE CHILDREN AND WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
