GREATER THINGS!

GREATER THINGS!

The things I am about to share may be hard for many to believe, but this does not mean that what you find in this paper is not absolutely true. For what I am going to share comes from more than just decades of study and revelation, it comes from experience.

So I want to state, right at the top of this essay, this may not be for you. That’s not a bad thing if it isn’t. I simply ask that if what you begin to read makes you angry, turn the page. But I also want you to know, that without a shadow of a doubt, the things you read today will one day ring true if they haven’t already.

It is my belief that one day everyone will come to the unity of the faith and the complete understanding of who and what we are, what we are capable of, as well as finding out what the elusive “meaning of life” is.

Ephesians 4:13
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

In the mean time if these words be not for you today they will be tomorrow.

The scriptures state there is a time appointed for each person to come to this wisdom. Just as there is a time for a child to learn his alphabet or multiplication table, so too, in mankind’s appointed time everyone will wake from their slumber into the glorious liberty of who they truly are and what they are truly capable of.

Nothing I write, say, or do, can change a person’s heart, only love and a person’s appointed time can. So to try to force someone to see what they are not ready to see is fruitless at best.

Now, if these words ARE for you, then rejoice!

In addition, if there are some who are not ready to hear what you hear, or see what you see, than do not think that they are somehow less than you. As Paul said, there was a time you were blind to all of this as well.

For those with ears to hear, they must not think that they have somehow arrived and others have not, lest they should fall into the sin of condemnation. And once we begin to condemn others, so begins our descent again into the depths of the very ignorance that has brought us all so much pain.

What a person believes, they receive. How a person judges another to be, brings that judgment on themself. Because we are all part of ONE BODY, we are all connected, what we do to others we do to ourselves. This is why we are instructed to “do unto others as you want done to yourself.” So if you judge people to be evil and cruel in your heart, your payment will be that people are evil and cruel. You will soon see that your thoughts create and you are capable of great and terrible things. This is why we must learn to take our thoughts captive. We must learn which thoughts to nourish and which to cast away.

Proverbs 23:7
For as a person thinks in his heart, so is he!

Whatever world you believe you are living in, this is the world you are living in and nothing, and no one, can change that… BUT YOU.

Right now these words may not really make sense to you, but after this essay is complete you will see that the power to do all things is, and has always been, within you!

So, to judge others for not knowing what you now know, is to lose the next step in your spiritual evolution. Eventually, all will come to the knowledge of the truth and the stature of the perfect man… WHY? You ask…

BECAUSE THAT IS WHO WE ALL TRULY ARE! And even if we don’t believe it, it does not matter, because we CANNOT DENY OURSELVES!

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

Eventually, all will come to the understanding of the enlightened. The reason we know this is because THE ENLIGHTENED FIRST knew this, which means they are a FIRST FRUITS OF SORTS.

When planting vegetables before all your vegetables are harvested there is a first stripe… a couple of those green beans will sprout and be ready to harvest, before the rest. This is how you know that what you have planted will become what you intended them to be, IN THEIR ENTIRETY.

If you understand the things WRITTEN HERE then PERHAPS YOU are as the first fruit of a crop that is destined to be holy in its ENTIRETY as well. THERE IS HOPE FOR EVERYONE!

So it is not good to think higher of yourself, or to think that you know more than another, or to condemn another in what they believe, because YOU ARE PROOF that they will also know what you know.

Romans 11
30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

For some these words will be like music to their ears, to others they will be like hot coals on their head, yet either way these words will have their day.

Habakkuk 2:2-4
2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
3 For the vision is yet for an APPOINTED TIME, BUT AT THE END IT SHALL SPEAK AND NOT LIE: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

This is why I write what I write, not because I think everyone will agree with me or praise me. I share these essays because I am for some odd reason driven to do so, writing and sharing these essays also bring me a great amount of joy. I rejoice because I know that what I have come to know is true, others will come to know as true and I can put these words out there knowing people who are ready to hear them from all over the world will find them.

Mark 13:27
And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.

So I do not try to convert people. The Kingdom of heaven was taken by force for far too long. It is LOVE/Goodness of God that draws a multitude to repentance. It is LOVE that will set people free, not pages upon pages of insight, or long speeches or prayers… LOVE!

Romans 2:4
Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

I do not tell others they must believe as I believe. I do not think that I somehow know more than they know. I am simply sharing the crop that has sprouted from my heart, who these words will fall on is up to who these words will fall upon. Whether they rejoice or reject these words does not matter to me. What matters is the WORD has gone forth from my mouth and it will not return without accomplishing what I sent it out into the world to accomplish.

Isaiah 55:11
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

So who is it that understands the GREATER THINGS of God? And who are those who cannot and will not?

Well in every person, there are in manner of speaking, TWO TYPES OF PEOPLE and our journey here is to learn the difference between the two and to find out who we truly are.

The 1st man, is the ignorant man who may not understand the words written here… This man exists but you will soon find, he truly doesn’t. He is an image of a greater man, who we will call the 2nd man, who will one day put down the first man rise again in his stead.

I understand that what I just wrote seems difficult to comprehend, but keep reading and the great mystery of who you are will begin to unfold.

So let’s discuss the first man and the last man for a bit. The scriptures state, the 1ST will be LAST and the LAST shall be 1st into the Kingdom of God. Then the scriptures go on to say, this is why we must be born again, not of Flesh, but of spirit!

The FIRST US is ignorant, an image, a lie, a false identity… This is why we must be BORN AGAIN. When we were first-born we came into this world pure and then were filled with a bunch of lies, that made us believe we were someone and something we were not. This is why, we must be BORN AGAIN, we must once again become like little children to inherit the Kingdom of God! We MUST be born again of incorruptible seed (truth), we must live as we truly are and DENY the person we began to believe ourself to be.

Matthew 16:24
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself,

We ALL must be BORN AGAIN! We must RISE out of the ignorance of our past.

Unless you are BORN AGAIN it is impossible to SEE/comprehend the truth and enter into the Kingdom of God to rule and reign!

John 3:
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

That which is born of FLESH is FLESH (1ST BORN)… the outward man, the ego man, the ignorant man who puts his faith in temporal things. The 1st man only believes in what he can see, touch, taste, and smell. This is a man after the Flesh.

We for far too long considered ourselves a flesh, blood, and bone being. However, who we truly are is actually within this FLESH, BLOOD, AND BONE BEING we began to believe ourselves to be…

WITHIN WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE IS WHO YOU REALLY ARE! AND WHO YOU REALLY ARE IS LIBERTY!

The ONE we believed ourself to be, was born after the Flesh. Now, mind you, the flesh is not a physical thing it is an IDEA that the physical thing is all there is. This is the FLESHLY MIND, otherwise known as the carnal mind… in truth, this is WORLDLY thinking.

John 8:23
And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

The First man is from BENEATH (LOWER THINKING/TEMPORAL LOGIC), the SECOND MAN is from above (HIGHER THINKING/ENLIGHTENED) — those OF THE WORLD are lost… those who believe this temporal world is all there is and put their faith in it, ARE LOST!

The 1st man is the lowest form of existence and we are destined/predetermined for so much more.

The FLESH man is the man who lusts after the WORLD, WHICH IS THE VERY THING WE NEED TO BE SAVED FROM.

The “world” quite literally is a symbol for the LUSTS OF THE FLESH! The FLESH man, the 1st born man/Adam chooses DEATH over LIFE.

Romans 8:5
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh

This is why life is not fulfilling for so many. Because while trapped in this first carnal man, while lost in this lie of who you think you are, you only worry about the things that pertain to this first carnal man. Worldly things.

The first man is filled with fear, anger, hate, envy, greed, and more.

Gal 5
19 Now the works of the FLESH are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

When you are trapped in this first man and cannot see the truth of who you REALLY are in the SECOND MAN your life is more of a chore than a reward.

The first man exists in the hell of his own ignorance.

So, there is a reason many will not be able to “hear” the words contained in this essay. The FLESH man cannot understand the things of the spirit, which is life and truth.

John 3
12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

Now the 2nd man is SPIRIT! That which is born or spirit is SPIRIT. Jesus said, my words are SPIRIT and they are TRUTH. The 2nd Man, the 2nd Nature within us, is the revelation of the TRUTH of who we really are and what we are truly capable of, which is what this essay is about.

The scriptures state that this 2nd Man is the LORD FROM HEAVEN… As I have written before, the word LORD literally translates into the EXISTING ONE… the 2nd man is the ONE WHO IS EXISTS IN RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, JOY AND POWER! This LORD, is not relocated to one specific man from thousands of years ago, that is the 1st Fleshly man’s teaching and it is a lie.

This is the “MAN” that I am going to write about today. The 2nd man… Christ, You, Me, and everyone in their RISEN/ENLIGHTENED state.

The second man who COMES (which literally means REVEALED, or UNCOVERED) and destroys the ANTI-CHRIST nature of the 1st man. The EGO that has ruled for far too long, sitting on the THRONE OF GOD, which is your MIND, declaring himself to be god. This is the 1st man, lost, corrupt, ignorant, and dead, for he is carnally (flesh) minded.

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

If you can draw the inference from the above passage, DEATH is the absence of LIVING YOUR LIFE IN PEACE. Sadly, this is the state of a majority of humanity. This is why we have war, famine, sickness, hate, and every other evil under the sun. But truly, those trapped in the thoughts of the ignorant first man, are ignorant, so they are not truly to blame…. They simply don’t know any better.

Luke 23:34
Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

If the first man, knew the truth, the first man would have never put to the death WHO THEY REALLY WERE AND ARE!

1 Corinthians 2:8
Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

Had any of us known the TRUTH and had not forgotten it, we would have never crucified the GLORY OF THE ONE WHO TRULY EXISTS.

The TRUTH was put to death at Golgotha, the place of the skull… RELIGION AND THE LAW OF THE LAND killed the TRUTH, because if anyone found out that THEY THEMSELVES were the LORD OF ALL THINGS, the HEIR of all things, the CHILD OF GOD, then the FIRST MAN who is a killer (Adam, cane, Ishmael, Esau) would have never wanted the 2nd man, who is a shepherd (jesus, Abel, Isaac, Jacob) put to death.

THE LIES OF THIS WORLD tore us down and placed us in the chains of ignorance and limitation. Pictured in Jesus being given a CROWN OF THORNS (thorns which are the cares oe the world and the deceit of riches)

Matthew 13:22
He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches

As JESUS took upon himself the SINS (cares/lies/ignorance) of this world and died… so did we. Which is why Jesus said, if you don’t do as I do, be as I am, think as I think, pick up your cross and follow me into the resurrection of who you truly are, then you are none of mine.

This is also why we have experienced so much pain and heartache. How can we enjoy our lives, if we are not living our lives as WHO WE TRULY ARE? This IMAGE of who we are needs to be put to death, so WHO WE TRULY ARE CAN RISE AGAIN.

John 1:15
John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he (2nd Man) of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

So, once again, there are two men written about in scripture. These two men are symbols of humanity, first in its ignorant/immature/brainwashed state, and the second who is mankind in its enlightened state.

The first man, as scripture states is of the earth, earthy, which literally means, this first nature in man is focused on temporal things. Focused on everything outside of them, bills, work, friends, family, hobbies, nature, etc… While the second man is THE LORD from heaven above, who minds SPIRITUAL THINGS (focuses within himself, no longer looking for salvation outside of him or herself, for the Kingdom of God (where GOD IS) is WITHIN YOU!

However, the first me, and the first you, or should I state, the FIRST BELIEF YOU HAVE ABOUT YOURSELF is not spiritual at all.

We were brainwashed to think of ourselves more like animals doomed to die of old age or disease. We were brainwashed to believe we had no power of our own, that our only hope was to be found outside of us, coming again soon, from some far off, far away place. We were brainwashed to believe we were the lowest of the low, the foulest of the foul, sinners destined to burn endlessly because we were simply born.

1 Cor 15:
46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.
48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we SHALL ALSO BEAR THE IMAGE OF THE HEAVENLY.

The first man, is ADAM formed from the dust of the earth, ADAM is a word which, as you should know by now, literally means humanity as a whole, it is all of mankind.

There is the 1st ADAM and the Last ADAM. We are both. We have borne the image of the fleshly, ignorant, natural man, and now we shall inherit the HEAVENLY, SPIRITUAL MAN.

The 1st ADAM became ignorant of the truth, and lost his true identity the instant he ate of the knowledge of good and evil… that first man was formed by the lies of parents, family, friends, neighbors, culture, religion, society, school, and so on. And woe are the ways of this first man.

However, there will come a time when the truth will be shouted on the rooftops and those DEAD IN CHRIST… meaning those who are IGNORANT OF WHO THEY TRULY ARE WILL RISE and understand these words.

But until that time, “the book is sealed”. This is why the scriptures compare the Kingdom of God to a mystery. A mystery that not everyone would be able to grasp right away. This is why the Kingdom of God is often compared to something that is HIDDEN within an EARTHEN VESSEL… The TRUTH OF WHO YOU ARE is hidden away in the LIES you believed about yourself.

2 Corinthians 4:7
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Who we REALLY ARE is HIDDEN within WHO WE THOUGHT WE WERE… So that the POWER OF GOD, may be OF GOD, AND NOT OF THE IMAGE OR IDEA OF GOD, which is who we have believed ourselves to be.

So many of the great truths of scripture had to be shared in parable. So that, “in seeing they may not see, and in hearing they may not hear”, as Isaiah stated.

Well, this essay is not for those who are scared to be kicked out of the synagogues as it was in Jesus’ day. No, this essay is for those who are ready to move pass their wilderness experience, cross the Jordan of death to self/image/ego, and enter into the promise land of who they really are and what they are truly capable of.

1 Corinthians 2:
9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him

Hear we see again that people truly have not grasped the full weight of what, and who, God really is and who, and what, they are in relation to God.

“IF YOU HAVE SEEN ME YOU HAVE SEEN THE FATHER!”

Even the most skilled religious leaders could not see, and can not see. In fact most will attack and tear down anything they do not understand. Because if the words that they declare as false turn out to be true, then their whole foundation is corrupt and everything they have believed themselves to be is a lie.

This is why the scriptures state that “darkness (ignorance) hates the light (truth) because it shows them their ways are evil.

And even as we, in our ignorance, will attack and tear down the truth and fight to have it put death in the thoughts of others, as we saw with the crucifixion of Jesus, the LIGHT that we truly are still SHINES WITHIN US… EVEN IF WE DON’T KNOW YET WHO WE ARE and what we are capable of.

John 1:5
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

So I don’t take offense when people will state that what I have written is wrong or that I am somehow possessed by devils or other such nonsense, because I have come to a place where I understand these people are not doing this because they know better, it is because they don’t truly know what they do. They are still very much ruled by their carnal egotistical mind, otherwise known as the anti-Christ. The beast that is and is not and yet is. This anti-Christ is nothing more than an illusion that we agreed was US, when in fact this false ego blinded us to the glorious truth of who we REALLY are.

Now I have written extensively on what and who the anti-Christ is you can find these essays on this blog under the category, and “more essay” section.

However, to be brief in explanation, the antichrist is the You, you think you are but are not. As I said we were blinded when we came into the world, we took on a false identity and simply forgot who and what we were, and are. Then the “image” of who we were, the ego of who we are, took over.

Matthew 21:33
Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country

There is no spooky evil spawn of Satan who is going to rule in the world and make people take the mark of the beast literally. We already took the mark of the beast (ignorance) the instant we believed we were someone we were not.

The MARK of the beast, is a life of worry and dread. When you are ignorant of who you really are, you live as a lie and have no access to joy, peace, or purpose. There is no rest in a lie.

Revelation 14:11
… and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

There is no rest for those who believe they are what they are not. THE BEAST is the FALSE EGO of Man. There is no truth in this lie.

We missed the mark of who we really were and reduced ourselves to the likes of an animal, a beast of burden. The children of men, which is the 1st man, are more like beasts than anything else.

Ecclesiastes 3:18
I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that THEY THEMSELVES ARE BEASTS

Simply put, the anti-Christ that sits in the temple of God (your mind) declaring himself to be god (you) is who you think you are, but are not.

This ego has done everything to lead you away from the TRUTH. It even created another God for you to worship, a false God far away and tricked you into waiting for salvation. The Ego/Anti-Christ tricked you into thinking you are somehow far removed from this god, that your ego created. This anti-Christ/ego of yours has you putting your faith in everything outside of yourself. This EGO keeps you ashamed and makes you believe that you are unworthy of anything but ENDLESS TORTURE. This Ego/Anti-Christ tricks you into thinking IF YOU DO THIS OR DO THAT, than you will someday BE LIKE God… when you have always BEEN GOD TO BEGIN WITH!

Most people don’t even know that their salvation is deliverance from their own false identity. Most people don’t know that their salvation from their ignorance is ACTUALLY WITHIN!

“know you not the Kingdom of God is within”, “Christ Within You is the hope of Glory”

This ego/enemy of yours works diligently to keep you focused on everything but the very thing you need to focus on, which is of course finding out who you really are! This is why we find religions pointing you to someone besides your true self, and pointing you to the future and the past instead of the only things that matters… the Now, and the YOU!

We have been lied to people, and fear has been driven deep into our thoughts, as the thorns on the crown of Jesus were driven into his head. This is why I know many will not be able to agree with many of the words written here.

John 3
10 … Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven
.

Did you catch that last line people… NO ONE ASCENDS TO HEAVEN unless that man first came down from heaven.

Now, here is where the fun begins.

We were lowered into this hell/ignorance so that we could also rise from it. For GOD so LOVED THE WORLD (the lusts of the flesh, lusts of the eyes, pride of life) that he GAVE his only begotten son…

You did the same. The idea of who you think you are, is a creation of YOU. You so loved this world that you created a child of your own and called this child YOU… and the TRUTH of who you were DIED (you became ignorant of) so that this IMAGE YOU CREATED could exist for a time.

And now it is TIME for THE REAL YOU to rise again, and DIE of who you THINK YOU ARE.

2 Corinthians 5:15
And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

Only a few of you can grasp this… so I will further explain. Let’s talk about THIS IMAGE THAT HAS BEEN CREATED.

15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

An image is a representation of something… It is NOT that something. In other words, the SON ( a title for the FIRSTBORN of EVERY CREATURE) is an IMAGE of the INVISIBLE GOD….

When the disciples asked Jesus, show us the FATHER, he said… “If you have seen me, you have seen the FATHER”….

Let us take that a step further, the FIRSTBORN OF EVERY CREATURE is the SON, not just JESUS… But the FIRSTBORN OF EVERY CREATURE… so it can be easily stated…

“If you have seen the FIRSTBORN of EVERY CREATURE you have seen the FATHER”

In 1st John, John declares, that AS HE IS so are WE in this world. Jesus is said to be the FIRST BORN among the DEAD, the FIRST BORN AMONG many brethren, THE first-born of EVERY CREATURE… This is a great mystery, because this is not speaking of ONE SINGLE MAN, but the WHOLE OF THE HUMAN RACE….

The “HIM” that is referenced in the next verse is the HIM that is WITHIN all of CREATION.

16 For by him (the firstborn of all creation) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

So ALL things were created by HIM and FOR HIM… and in Hebrews we see that GOD created all things THROUGH this “SON” which is the firstborn of all creation.

Hebrews 1:2
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds

This VERY SAME (Image/Son/Firstborn OF ALL CREATION) is appointed HEIR OF ALL THINGS… So the question we must ask, is this JESUS the man alone? Or is JESUS A SYMBOL of the FIRSTBORN OF ALL, ALL, ALL CREATION (mankind)… Meaning is JESUS simply a symbol for ALL OF US? As John states “as HE is, so are we”…. Well, THE SON is APPOINTED HEIR OF ALL THINGS…..

Romans 8:17
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Christ was a TITLE given to Jesus… a title and crown we also wear. So when you read that we are HEIRS of GOD and JOINT-HEIRS with Christ… this means we are the same. No one is greater than another.

WE ARE ALL HEIRS OF GOD… set to inherit ALL THINGS… All THINGS, which means, EVERYTHING! Everything that GOD IS AND GOD CAN DO… ALL THINGS! Whatever the FATHER has the SON will have.

First the SON will put his enemies under his feet, than the son will GO TO THE FATHER… which means the SON and the FATHER will become ONE and the same.

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

Just as your children become parents themselves, so to you will become the very thing you always were. The HEIR as long as he is a child differs nothing from a servant or slave. This is written in the book of Galatians, although the (child/those immature in wisdom) IS LORD OF EVERYTHING.

We ARE God’s child… not just JESUS ALONE. Jesus is no better or worse than we are. He is simply the first-born among many brethren, like me, like you. An older brother is not greater than his younger more inexperienced brothers.

Romans is not the only place we see that we are ALSO THE ONE TRUE HEIR. ISRAEL which was an entire people, was ALSO CALLED God’s son… In fact, God said to Pharoah that ISRAEL was his FIRSTBORN.

Exodus 4:22
And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord, Israel is my son, even my firstborn!

Hhmmn, this is interesting because a majority of those in Christianity have been taught that the ONLY SON OF GOD was JESUS… This was another clever trick of the Ego of mankind. You need to let this go. Deep within you there is a fear that if you STOP believing this Jesus is your Lord and Savior you will somehow be damned, but what you don’t see is that you have damned yourself with these lies.

There is NOT ONE PERSON who is more special than another. Regardless of what religion has taught you. God is not respecter of persons. ADAM and JESUS are symbols of humanity in it’s two states, one is its ignorant state, and the other in it’s risen/enlightened state.

We know from scripture that the SON (children of God/creation of God/Image of God) IS THE HEIR OF ALL THINGS… which we found out was not one single man named Adam, or jesus, or even Israel, but EVERYONE because…

Romans 9:26
And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are NOT my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God
.

Despite what you have been taught by religion, whatever God wills, God’s will WILL be done… meaning, in the end, even those who seem to be so far removed from the understanding of who they are, even those who have been called enemies of God, WILL BE SAVED from their ignorance and will come to the UNITY of the faith… And BY UNITY I mean, the understanding that we are ALL ONE…. The FIRSTBORN AMONG THE DEAD, the FIRSTBORN AMONG ALL, ALL, ALL CREATION… is WHO WE ARE!

What God has planned cannot be undone. Whatever GOD wills WILL be done…

Isaiah 14:27
For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?

Whatever you SET YOUR MIND to, whatever YOU BELIEVE is TRUE, WHO CAN CHANGE YOUR MIND? No one can… Whatever the LORD, which, once again, LITERALLY MEANS “THE ONE WHO EXISTS” has purposed, who can change that?

Now this would be bad news, if it wasn’t first set in stone that no one can fail. Because the LORD, the ONE WHO EXISTS WITHIN US ALL has already purposed that ALL come to the knowledge of the truth, that ALL will finally realize who THEY TRULY ARE and what they are TRULY CAPABLE of… which is ALL THINGS!

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

WE ARE ALL HEIRS and LORD OF ALL!

Galatians 3:29
And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

The problem is, most people don’t get it yet. They don’t understand WHO THEY TRULY ARE… As Galatians states, even though we are HEIRS and LORD OF EVERYTHING (Which sounds like blasphemy to the unbeliever) we appear and think like children or ignorant slaves.

WE ARE THE HEIRS that DON’T KNOW IT… The FIRSTBORN of ALL CREATION.. you are the FIRSTBORN of all creation if you EXIST!

Galatians 4:1
Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant/slave, though he be lord of all…

Read that again… We are the heirs, but if we are immature and ignorant of this, we seem like slaves or servants, even though WE ARE LORD OF EVERYTHING!

Remember GOD CREATES EVERYTHING through us, for us, which is why Jesus said… “With Faith ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE”

Now here is where it gets tricky…

If YOU can BELIEVE, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO HIM that BELIEVES. (Mark 9:23 KJV)

All things are possible for THOSE who believe… Now catch this next part… Look and see who else ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE BY.

For with God NOTHING shall be impossible. (Luke 1:37 KJV)

All things are possible for God…
All things are possible for those that believe…

And again…

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. (Matthew 17:20 KJV)

For the person who has faith and believes… ALL things are possible!

And again…

And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt. (Mark 14:36 KJV)

All things are possible with God
All things are possible for the believer.

God and the believer are ONE. “That they may be one, as we are one”, “I am in the Father and the father is in me”

All things are possible for the YOU! Because of who YOU really Are, you are the FIRSTBORN OF ALL CREATION, you ARE THE SON OF GOD, and the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD… BECAUSE GOD IS WITHIN YOU, CREATING THE YOU YOU THINK YOU ARE… But it is GOD WHO SEES THROUGH YOUR EYES AND GUIDES YOUR HANDS….

God LOVED THE WORLD so much that GOD gave his ONLY BEGOTTEN SON (who you think you are) so that YOU (who you THINK YOU ARE) MAY LIVE. BUT NOW IT IS TIME TO ARISE AND WAKE UP!

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.

You see people, GOD IS ALL THERE IS, and you are the manifestation of God, YOU ARE THE SON… by whom ALL THINGS ARE CREATED, which is why ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE FOR YOU if you BELIEVE.

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

THE DEAD are those who FORGOT who they really were and had the TRUTH resurrected within them… CHRIST which is a title, is the firstborn among the dead/ignorant, the human race entered death (ignorance) so that we might overcome DEATH…

We became CORRUPT in our thinking and began to limit ourselves. We missed the mark of the high calling, which is that light shining in darkness, and we began to believe we were victims of circumstance. We forgot that we create our world, and everything was created by us, for us. But now it is time to wake up and put on the perfect mind once again.

1 Corinthians 15:54
So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

When this happens we will LIVE OUR LIVES, and the death/hell (ignorant suffering) that has become of our lives will be swallowed up in victory!

As I stated earlier, no one ascends into heaven, unless they first descend into hell and forget who they are… We forgot who we were and died, but we shall also revive from our ignorance and take back what was once ours, and ALL THINGS WILL BE POSSIBLE.

Ephesians 4:
8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?

These are the GREATER THINGS Jesus spoke of. This is why Jesus said, “I can do nothing but the Father does all…” Because Jesus understood, as I understand, this IDENTITY we have right now is not WHO WE ARE, it is simply the vehicle in which God (who we are ONE with) chooses to exist in.

John 14:10
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.

When you see yourself in the mirror, just who is that looking at you through your eyes?

The answer to this, is your salvation!

Much love to you and yours,
Jacob

God, The Mind, You



God, The Mind, You

This article may be review for some of you who have read here before. But for those who haven’t this article will truly blow your mind and open your eyes to a mystery that has been hidden within the parable of scripture. This is God, the mind, and you! And it is where science and faith meet head on and when it does it increases our faith with its findings.

Before you begin, please subscribe to this blog. It is located on the Left of the screen, it is free, and you will always be updated with fresh essays and it will of course make my day! Enjoy the essay, Jacob

It’s been awhile since I have been inspired to write an essay. But this morning, revelation hit. Like Lightning from Heaven the SPARK OF INSPIRATION/CREATION came (revealed/unveiled) to me. Now it deals with the title of this essay, but before I get into that, I want to briefly share some other finding. This you will find is where scripture and science meet, and what happens is indeed wonderful.

Let’s start by talking about that “Lightning”. Jesus (the truth revealed in man/God’s salvation revealed) is said to come like “Lightning” from Heaven.

Luke 17:24
For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

This is the way understanding/wisdom COMES (which means REVEALED, UNCOVERED). This is the way CHRIST COMES (The way WISDOM is REVEALED) – Like lightning from heaven.

Now the first real give away that this isn’t speaking of some event OUTSIDE of us, is the word HEAVEN. And we know the Kingdom of Heaven does not come outside of us it is found within. I will get into this further in moment.

Now let’s think for a moment about literal Lightning. In the dark of night, when lightning strikes, for a MOMENT you literally SEE EVERYTHING CLEARLY. You catch a glimpse into what was hidden by the darkness of night. And, this is the very same way the REVELATION of the TRUTH (Christ/Word) comes (is revealed). In glimpses we see, but we don’t retain the full knowledge of everything we have seen, whatever is closest to us we see clearly and remember, but things farther away we cannot make out as well.

This is such a wonderful description of how REVELATION hits. The TRUTH of God many refer to as an onion, one that is very complex and has many layers. The more you peel away, the sweeter and more wonderful the find.

Now let me for a moment show you why LIGHTNING is the perfect way to describe REVELATORY THOUGHT. Permit me to use science to further demonstrate this.

This is how thought works: (scientifically speaking) Okay so first you need to understand that the cells that make up your nervous system are called Neurons. But that’s not the cool part, just very important for this “Lightning” in our brain to take place.

Now these Neurons connect to each other with SYNAPSES. Now when messages/thoughts/feelings/etc are transferred to each other it happens at LIGHTNING speed, via a Lightning fast chemical and ELECTRICAL reaction. – Now here is the deal, these synapses are FIRING CONSTANTLY, when thinking, praying, or sleeping these electrical and chemical impulses/messages are ALWAYS being transported from one to another. The Nervous system is often called the POWER LINES of your body, as chemical and electrical impulses are at always at work.

Now here is when REVELATION meets SCIENCE.

Job 37:
2 Listen carefully to the thunder of God’s voice (TRUTH) as it rolls from his mouth.
3 It rolls across the heavens, and his LIGHTNING flashes in every direction

As I stated earlier the KINGDOM (REIGN) OF HEAVEN/GOD is WITHIN (in your midst, in YOU) – This is why we are told not to look outside of ourselves for God, because God is within, on his Throne (our minds).

I often ask people what the TEMPLE OF GOD is, they happily tell me, “we are the Temple of God” where God exists. Then I ask people to point to their TEMPLES and I ask them, what is between their Temples.

Between your TEMPLES is your BRAIN. Let’s look at the crusifiction allegorically, what is the physical also telling us spiritually. Christ (the power and wisdom of God in us) was put to death (we became ignorant of) at GOLGATHA (the place of the skull = Your Brain)

It is all about our MIND! This is why we are told to put on the MIND OF CHRIST (The thought of God’s truth/the ANNOINTING OF THE TRUTH).

Now, THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO, when these scriptures were written, there was NO WAY for them to have the complex understanding of how the Brain works, as we do today. They didn’t have the advances in medicine we have today. So to use Lightning, Clouds, and more to describe how the TRUTH is processed within us is a little more tha curious. Perhaps this is more proof the holy Books of God are INSPIRED of God…

Now we see scientific findings backing up what was written by those prophets of old, who could never have known the intricacies of the brain. Much less, understand that when we THINK it is LIKE A LIGHTNING STORM going off in our brain. That alone should blow you away. But now let me explain something else before I really get into the meat of this paper.

John 15:2
Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

Now you read this scripture and hopefully understand that Jesus is speaking in PARABLE. But many make the mistake the word BRANCH here means literal people, as opposed to the THOUGHTS WITHIN that make us who we are. People are NOT their physical bodies they are spiritual beings (thoughts expressed) within physical bodies.

Now the above scripture is NOT literal, just as we understand that the FRUIT people bear are good deeds and Godly attitudes and not bananas, apples, or oranges. So if the people do not bear fruit are THEY taken away? NO! The Branches that are NOT BEARING FRUIT are TAKEN AWAY, these are BRANCHES OF THOUGHT! Now watch how science and faith meet head on once again.

Let’s first talk about what this word SPIRIT means. Earlier stated it was OUR THOUGHTS.

God is TRUTH AND SPIRIT. God is not flesh and blood, but GOD IS SPIRIT and truth. God is also LOVE. These words “spirit, love, truth” are not physically tangible, they are THOUGHTS expressed. They begin within us, thought is our desires, our feelings, and it is expressed without as WORDS and ACTIONS.

Jesus said my WORDS are SPIRIT and TRUTH… Jesus ONLY SPOKE what GOD TOLD HIM TO SPEAK…

Words = SPIRIT = Spoken Thought = WE ARE DEALING WITH OUR THOUGHTS NOT PEOPLE, BUT PEOPLE’S THOUGHTS!

John 15:2 – Every THOUGHT in ME (the body of Christ/humanity) that is not bearing Fruit (peaceful, charitable, humble, meek, kind, genuine thoughts and TRUTH) is purged!!!!!!

Now, what will really blow your mind is when you find out what DENDRITES are.

Here is a DENDRITES definition= a BRANCHED, TREELIKE protoplasmic process of a neuron that carries nerve impulses toward the cell body.

What are DENDRITES you ask? Glad you asked. I’ve written about them before, but I’ll go into more detail for THOSE WHO WERE NOT PAYING ATTENTION THE LAST TIME!

The dendrites (branch) job is to collect data, information and pass it along.

Once again we find, if you want to find God in a microscope you’ll find God, in space you’ll find God, in the forest you’ll find God, in A CADAVER you’ll find God, In scripture you’ll find God… It ALL WORKS TOGETHER and ALL BEARS WITNESS to the TRUTH/MYSTERY that is WITHIN US ALL.

NOW CHECK THIS OUT!

Here is an interesting FACTOID! FIG TREES do not grow well in Michigan because the environment is too STRESSFUL for them.

Is that true? YES! Did Jacob say, Fig Trees don’t grow well in STRESS? YES!

A fig tree is best grown in a quiet, peaceful environment. WEIRD RIGHT? Not really, when you understand that GOD MADE ALL THINGS and if there is LIFE in that thing (fig tree) GOD IS IN IT! – This is why some people sing and talk to their plants. Studies have shown some music helps plants to thrive, while other music does not.

Now what does the FIG TREE have to do with the DENDRITES/BRANCHES? And why even bring it up?

Well, for a Brain to heal, NEW DENDRITES/BRANCHES need to form, and for ANYONE TO HEAL NEOROLOGICALLY they need to be in a stress free environment, as well as get plenty of REST, LOVE, NURTURING, STIMULATION, and SUNLIGHT – Yes, SONLIGHT- As the SON/SUN helps all things to GROW, so the TRUTH SHINING BRIGHT WITHIN DOES AS WELL.

But back to our DENDRITE/BRANCHES of the FIG TREE EXAMPLE.

Mark 13
28Now learn a parable of the FIG TREE; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near: 29So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

Now watch the TRANSLATION, when NEW BRANCHES OF THOUGHT begin to form, we know FRUIT WILL SOON COME!

Once you begin to SEE the Kingdom of Heaven in a new way, you know THE HARVEST is soon approaching. Which means SOON you will be walking in the knowledge of the truth.

Ephesians 4:13
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
…. AND, we will no longer be tossed back and forth with the nonsense being spouted from the pulpits, altars, temples, mosque’s, kingdom halls, quaker meeting houses, etc… but we will KNOW AS WE ARE KNOWN = We will know we are GOD’S CHILD!

At that point, NEW BRANCHES OF THOUGHT rooted in TRUTH form… We no longer serve the OLD THOUGHTS/LIES of our sensual understanding (left brain thinking) but we will align ourselves with the TRUTH OF GOD and live out of the SPIRIT of CREATION (Right brain thinking) – we will put off the old for the new!

Colossians 3:10
And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him

It’s all about KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDING, WISDOM! This is what the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS ALL ABOUT!

Proverbs 3
13 Happy is the man that findeth WISDOM, and the man that getteth UNDERSTANDING. 14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. 15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. 16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. 17Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. 18 SHE IS A TREE OF LIFE to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

WISDOM IS A TREE OF LIFE – from which many branches (dendrites) grow, first leaves (basic understanding shoot forth) then FRUIT!

It is all about KNOWING GOD and the SON (humanity resurrected from within) – this is ETERNAL LIFE!

John 17:3
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

SALVATION is not a FUTURE EVENT. But a NOW EVENT!

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.

And Salvation is NOT about saying a couple of catch phrases, going to church/temple/mosque and doing what your Religious leader says to do. It is about UNDERSTANDING GOD IS IN CONTROL! Solomon understood EVERYTHING IS VANITY with the exception of KNOWING GOD. Knowing It is GOD THAT DOES ALL AND WILLS ALL!

Oh, but what about saying “Jesus I ask you INTO MY LIFE and make you LORD OF MY LIFE.” And then the preacher says, “If you said that prayer I believe you are saved!” I am sorry to say, this may be a step for many, but it is far from being born again. Salvation is a process, the Onion of truth within us needs to be peeled away daily. The good news is no one can fail, we are predetermined (preprogrammed) for salvation.

You can’t say a couple of things because they sound good to you, follow after your itching ears and know salvation. Salvation is like BIRTH (being Born again) and that is a PROCESS. It isn’t whamo you’re saved!

Philippians 2:12
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, WORK OUT your own salvation with fear and trembling.

This is a process people! The OLDER NATURE in MAN has been ruling since CAVEMAN DAYS! The YOUNGER brother/ CHRIST NATURE (The Power and Wisdom of God Revealed)

BTW, this is how we are saved when we CONFESS (ADMIT/EXHIBIT) THE NATURE OF CHRIST… The word “Name” translates into NATURE.

But I digress, the CHRIST NATURE (God’s Power and Wisdom) was put to death (covered/veiled) by the CARNAL NATURE. As Cane killed Abel, So our CARNAL EGO (who we think we are) puts to death (makes us ignorant of) WHO WE REALLY ARE (God’s child) after being born and believing all the brainwashing and nonsense that FORMED US (dust = lies) which by the way is what the SERPENT EATS DUST. To eat means to assimilate.

But little by little that YOUNGER (newer) NATURE (CHRIST) takes control. And soon overthrows all the nonsense lies we have believed with the BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING (revealing).

Philippians 3:8
Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ.

When the BRANCHES/TARES/GOATS and any other allegory to describe the THOUGHTS of the WORLD as OPPOSED TO THE KINGDOM (reign) OF GOD are gathered and purged/burned… we will INHERIT THE UNDERSTANDING OF WHO WE TRULY ARE!

1 Peter 5:10
But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

Yes through MUCH TRIBULATION we enter the KINGDOM. And when we do, we do exactly as it is WRITTEN IN THE BOOK of US to do. But after we suffer the THORNS in our Flesh (Cares of the world), after family and friends turn on us for our new-found understanding, after we are persecuted, and abused… then and only then do we enter the Kingdom and sit down on the RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER WITH CHRIST (GOD’S TRUTH AND ANNOINTING)

Luke 22:69
Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.

You see, even our SUFFERINGS are paving our way to the KINGDOM!

But now to the CROSS of my essay! The great revelation that HIT ME right where CHRIST sits! THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER!

I have always known that THE RIGHT HAND is a symbol of the TRUTH OF GOD, and the LEFT HAND is where SATAN rules, representing the Temporal world… But not until this morning when Bill sent me a curious link, did I begin to “SEE” the truth of what the RIGHT HAND AND LEFT HAND REALLY WAS!

I have always written about the workings of the brain, twelve disciples (twelve pairs of cranial nerves) 24 kings seated around the throne. ETC, ETC, But never put two and two TOGETHER INTO ONE!

Our BRAIN is made up of three big parts… THE RIGHT HEMISPHERE, THE LEFT HEMISPHERE, THE BRAIN STEM (Reptilian brain)

Now to SIT is an ALLEGORY of being ROOTED IN SOMETHING. So to SIT at the RIGHT HAND of the FATHER, means to be ROOTED IN HIS TEACHING/WISDOM.

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH A LITERAL HAND!

Now, this is the LIGHTNING (Enlightening) that struck me… I looked up what functions the RIGHT AND LEFT Hemisphere perform… and I was BLOWN AWAY!

LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS, uses logic, detail oriented, facts rule, words and language, present and past (not future), math and science, acknowledges order/pattern perception, knows object name, reality based, forms strategies, practical,safe

Now doesn’t that left brain sound a lot like the carnal man? “There is a way that seems good to a man, he makes plans, BUT GOD ORDERS HIS STEPS.”

RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS : uses feeling, “big picture” oriented, imagination rules, symbols and images (ALLEGORY), present and future, philosophy & religion, can “get it”, belief, appreciates spatial perception, fantasy based, presents possibilities. FAITH!

You see the LEFT BRAIN FUNCTION deals with TANGIBLE, TEMPORAL THINGS, like logic, facts, words, math, perception, reality based ideas, practical thinking… THE LEFT BRAIN deals with WORLDLY THINKING… And who is king of the world “Satan” – Man’s Carnal Egotistical Nature.

Now the RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTION on the other hand, uses feelings, intuition, imagination, religion, philosophy, fantasy, belief, faith…. THIS IS THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER we MUST SIT DOWN AT!

Hebrews 11:1
Now FAITH is the substance of things HOPED FOR, the evidence of things NOT SEEN.

The RIGHT BRAIN is the SEAT that deals with FAITH. The LEFT BRAIN cannot accept what isn’t seen, it deals with perception, logic, MAN’S UNDERSTANDING… but without FAITH it is IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD!
These are the TWO MEN (carnal/worldly left brain – spiritual/heavenly right brain) sleeping in one bed.

These are the TWO NATURES at war.

Galatians 5:17 (New Living Translation)
17 The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions.

And what does scripture say about a double minded man?

James 1:8
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Here’s the good news (Gospel) folks…. The ELDER shall serve the YOUNGER (CHRIST) 🙂

Now history shows that it isn’t until recently that our RIGHT HEMISPHERE thinking has evolved. Back in CAVEMAN days, they dealt in the lowest of carnal realms, the SERPENT (BRAIN STEM/REPTILIAN BRAIN) — But now is TIME for us to WAKE OUT OF THIS SLUMBER and SIT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER AS WELL!

Now, If the RIGHT HEMISPHERE is the RIGHT HAND of GOD (Where God’s truth/inspiration is imparted) and the LEFT HEMISPHERE is where (Man’s logic, and man’s ways are ruling) — THEN WHERE IS GOD THE FATHER FOUND?

Where do we SEE THE FACE OF GOD?

Well, I should know that better than anyone.

Genesis 32:30
And Jacob called the name of the place PENIEL: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.

Sound familiar to any of you geeks out there? THE PINEAL GLAND, also known, and called by many the THIRD EYE, or as Rene Descartes called it the SEAT OF THE SOUL… But the PINEAL GLAND is an ENDOCRINE gland which is very, very, very, tiny.

Luke 13:19
It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.

Now very little is known about the PINEAL GLAND with the exception that it produces MELATONIN, which is affected by the amount of LIGHT or DARKNESS a person gets. For example if their surroundings are dark, it makes the person SLEEP. (The allegory being, when you are ignorant you are asleep/dead/carnal) but when the LIGHT shines it WAKES YOU!

So the PINEAL GLAND is like OUR MASTER clock telling us when it is time to sleep and when to wake up… And the RIGHT HEMISPHERE AND LEFT HEMISPHERE are located on either side of it.

Now, what does all of this have to do with our FAITH? If anything, once again it shows that we can find the TRUTH OF GOD EVERYTHING, especially WITHIN! So shut your eyes, cut off that LEFT BRAIN THINKING and COME UP HIGHER!

Peace Jacob

MAKE ME A LIVING EPISTLE


MAKE ME A LIVING EPISTLE PART 1

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DAY 2: 1/20/2009

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

OR

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

DAY OF THE LORD IS HERE


THE DAY OF THE LORD IS HERE


You don’t have to be an economics or psychology expert to know times are tougher now on families than ever before. Domestic violence, child abuse, marriages are in trouble, and as always there are many wars. Alcoholism and drug addiction is on the rise. These are difficult days for you and I. But they don’t have to be that way. Read on and you’ll see, there is a truth about who you are that can, and will set you free and it won’t cost you anything but losing the very chains keeping you from being who God has made you to be.

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


While the liars and false profits of the land, with your money in their hands, tell you give more, do more, read their book, help park the cars, cut the grass, volunteer with daycare, and help people find their chairs. They are getting richer and richer, having affairs, and robbing you blind with the slightest care. People need to realize they shouldn’t be working, singing, dancing, directing, or working for free. The Pastor will tell them, we need volunteers, and that God will see this effort and make their conscience clear. But when it comes to your Pastors, their bankaccounts are full of your money and their tax exempt status keeps them in the green, while were broke with IRS fears.

But the times are changing, people’s beliefs are rearranging, they are no longer laying every nickel on the line. They are losing faith because when they need help, these big name pastors never have the time. They are getting fed up with every scandal that breaks, yet some still hang on, because they have been so brainwashed they still allow these lying, perverted, thieves to take and take and take. However, for those that leave because they are tired of being promised peace and finding none. The fancy twisting of scripture and all their empty promises and manipulation is no longer enough for them to continue to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:3
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

And for those who say, “my Religious leader” isn’t that way. Go to his face and tell him you no longer want to pay.

You see, if you only knew what God wanted from you. You’d stop your works, stop your worrying, and stop doing what religious wolves tell you to do. God doesn’t want you to go to man to find God’s truth. He begged Israel to do the same, but they refuse to go to that mountain, they said “Hey Moses” you go talk to God today and then come back and tell us what God did say. And that didn’t make God to happy at all. This is why they began to rely on a ridiculous man made law, which only made them fall all the more.

You see God wants to be your king, but you believe you need to go to “church” sit down, kneel, pray, tithe, and sing. So like foolish Israel you do the same, the Prophet comes to you and say Let God Be Your Only King but you say no, let a Man or Woman rule over us, and all our treasure to them we will bring. The Prophet gets sad, and thinks that’s too bad, but God reminds Samuel what they lost and what they will now have. This is the reason in religion you are all suffering and things are so bad. Your Preacher, you should call Saul, the King of your fall, the wolf will will rule and has ruled and ruined you all.

1 Samuel 8: 11 And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.

(All you congregants you are the same. You give King Saul Religion your sons and daughters and their inheritance he will soon claim)

12And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.

(Religion has produced preachers, Imans, Bishops, Priests, Pastors, Evangelist, Rabbi’s and more, and I don’t have to remind you of history how each of these religions kill in the name of their god and send all of our children to war)

13And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.

(Got to love those bake sales and yard sales, and preservice treats, the coffee stands, the bookstores, where all the women of faith work and meet.)

14And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.

(The Religious Kings take, take, take, and those that kiss their ring make, make, make)

15And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants. 16And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work. 17He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.

(Isn’t this what I was saying all along, how serving these liars and thieves is not where you belong. All they want it that TENTH of all you have, if you don’t give it to them, well they will call you evil and bad. Soon you’ll be wishing you didn’t ask for King Saul instead of just asking for DAD!)

18And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.

Revival they cry, what a joke. It’s like those other religious leaders pretending to get high and drunk on Holy ghost drink and smoke. There are so much madness and folly, I wonder why more aren’t saying, I’m outta here so sorry!

Revival, that’s the new word of the day. And the fat cats contiue with the same grand ear itching words they saw, playing the same old songs they place, but it’s all the same old side show, just presented in a different way. Whether it is gold dust appearing, oil, healing, or smoke from a fog machine the lying fat cats placed below. God is tired, you greedy profits soon you’ll find yourself fired, and then you congregants your Father God you will know!

My children perish from their lack of understanding, God says. Yet, these Revival liars put all their focus on the miraculous things they say they do, and NONE OF IT IS TRUE!

So this new “revival” thing is what these religous wolves have begun. And the word, you’ve heard, the one they use is absolutely absurd. REVIVAL? REVIVAL they cry. “Look at this young boy I healed his blind eyes”, or this old woman with a cane, watch her hobble around with a fake smile hiding her excrutiating pain, “She’s healed, she healed!” the liars scream. And the old woman in pain goes along because the wolf has her convinced she should go along and praise God for the miracle he’s done. Even though when these so-called “healed ones” are alone, they feel dirty for lying to make their pastor look good. They still have their cancer, some even die because their medicine they refuse thinking at that service God gave them an answer.

These so called congregants that the liars say they healed, like old hobbling women whose purse the wolves love to steal, should have grabbed her cane and stood. Saying, I am no longer playing, I want the truth and nothing more. Take your hocus pocus nonsence, and you can keep your people writhing and shaking on the floor, you’ve taught them to act the fool and they’ve become a bunch of tools, believing God wants them to laugh hysterically, shake and quake as if their baked. It’s all witchcraft and nothing more.

1 Samuel 15:23
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry

This you might find interesting, while the liars of the land are praying and shouting REVIVAL in the land, like many of the others lies they teach, eternal torture, trinity, rapture, tithing, and foreign speech. The word Revival isn’t even found in the bible. Not in one translation at all. So what in their “hell” are they praying for?

They can pray all they want, but if it isn’t in God’s will, all you’ll get from these wolves and liars are cheap thrills. They are bucket dippers, your bucket will never be filled. Empty clouds, twice dead, ravenous creatures, with nothing but dreams building “their” kingdom larger in their head. And they’ll do anything, say anything, promise anything, to get what they want. So let me post this is BOLD FACED FONT.

These Religious Leaders have one thing on their mind and money is their bottom line. That want to line their pockets and continue to live in the very lap of luxury your hard earned dollars have provided them with..

Revival what a joke? The word REVIVE means to MAKE ALIVE, and yet their words are the very words on which their congregants choke. You’re dead in your trespasses, this you should know, if you still to religious church you go. God needs you to flee, for Babylon is being ripped away from you and me.

There is coming a time when people will turn away from this. They won’t just get angry, they will be downright pissed. And why shouldn’t they be. They’ve been brainwashed since they were three. Fear was used to keep them in line, and when that didn’t work it was the seeds of greed the wolves planted inside so they’d keep in their seats their ignorant behinds.

These promises state if you give all they can give, YOU God will appreciate. If they can sow their seed, God will fill their every need. Yet God never wanted anyone’s money. Isn’t that funny. So, I pray people will say, forget your altar of baal, I have credit cards to pay.

Hosea 6:6
For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings

Look I am not here to tear down but to build. And soon you’ll be filled. But like Paul, a storm will come and it won’t be fun, but this will show you what must be done. First you have to get rid off every lieyou’ve believed weighing you down. Then your vessel will make it into the kingdom and no one will drown. Because there is a greater truth coming to town. You may not hear it tomorrow, next week, next month, but I promise soon this truth will be found.

You will know life eternal, which is to know who you are, why you were sent and by whom. You will wake up and shake off those grave clothes like Lazarus when he was risen from the tomb. And people will be there to help if need be. My greatest desire is to see everyone put aside their belief in hell fire, and know that God is in control of you and me.

This is all anyone needs to know. It will come with a cost that is true, but I have a secret to tell you. You may feel like a slave, beat down, hurt, alone, and more I could say, but you are much more and this TRUTH I am sharing, when you grab hold of it, you will know what it means to be saved.

Galatians 4:7
So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.

When you wake up and understand you don’t need these religious leaders, or be apart of their foolish miracle healing crusades, you will see, as I see, that you are God’s child. You were sold into this religious bondage but Adam you don’t need to cover yourself in fig leaves and hide, so from these religious traditions and liars you must come out from behind.

Hebrews 10: 6In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. 7Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God

You have been told that the book was written about a man named Jesus, but I say that Jesus is YOU. God only had ONE SON this is true, and that is all of humanity, me and you. But the first state of man is ignorant of who they are, because we left a country of truth and entered a religious country that is far.

In the dust of lies, experiences, and brainwashing this first ignorant man, we’ll call him Adam, was formed. Working your way to God is what this first ignorant man and woman thought was the norm. But they forgot who they were, the image of God that’s for sure, but they began to believe that had to eat religious nonsence to be what they were already created to be. God’s son, but I like to say child, there is no male or female whether walking in Christ shows an inch or a mile.

But when Christ, the Truth of who you are, wakes up and returns from a country that’s far. The religious leaders will kill Him before, the wolves do not want the children to know who they truly are.

Killed by the RELIGIOUS, that’s right, that’s what it means to be crusified with Christ. We believed the lies of who were thought we were. Then we believed those who said our father was vengeful, hateful God. A god we needed to please by sacraficing our money and our time, but this is the Religious leaders crime, the murder of the CHRIST IN YOU and yet this all was but a sign. You think Jesus is the only one to cried, “Father why have you forsaken me” this day? You see, the Religious monsters took us away, manipulated us, lied to us, and held us in ignorant chains, drove nails into our hands (works) and feet (walk) and pressed a crown of thorns (cares of the world and church) into our head, this is why most religious people are dead.

For those who know, for those who show, the truth as a bright light shining on top a large hill. The days of ignorance and pain and suffering is gone, and now the mystery is revealed. They have died to who they thought they were, they have given up control, because now they know, that it pleased God to bruise us to eventually use us to free his children and throw the wolves under the bus. And so we have, or will, learn obediance by what we suffer, but it is only because we chose evil King Saul instead of our Father. But really that’s always been part of the plan, but I don’t think myself or anyone is ready for that to understand.

But if tou want freedom, if you want peace, if you want to know all is well. Then you must leave your religious denominations and leaders and escape the pits of their ignorant hell. The only way to do this, is to confess Christ as Lord. That means Christ is not far away, Christ is in you, and this is what walking in the valley of the shadow of death was for. To have the clouds open up and hear, “Behold my beloved son, in whom I’m well pleased” in whom I love and hold dear.

And if a SON, which is symbolic of EVERYONE REVIVED from the DEATH (IGNORANCE) of religion and the world, then a SAVIOR to others who will help them find the Kingdom, as one who finds a precious pearl. Yes you will suffer, you will lose friends, home, family, and money, and I know that’s not funny, but part of the plan. You must be stripped from everything you thought God’s promises were in. Then when you are naked, starved, beaten, hanging on your cross, you will say as Paul said, It was all dung and I consider nothing lost. You will say as Christ said, “Into your hands I commit my spirit.” And then you will be born again, ressurected in the world no longer a slave to sin. But now a creator who knows the power of his thoughts and words. No longer judging others, but doing unto them as you would want them to do unto you. No longer putting your faith in negative things, but things and thoughts that are good and true. You’ll take every though captive because you will learn it is it your thoughts that create, whether you can hear this or not, this news to you should be great! Everything was made by the SON, for the SON, and without the SON nothing was made that is made.

For those who have ears to hear. When you and the Father are one, that’s when life becomes fun. He gives you the desires of your heart, and you no longer allow your negative “satanic” thoughts to tear your heart and desires apart. You only do what your Father tells you to do, because you and your father are one. And if one, then no longer two, no longer lost, easily manipulated, or listeing to the ignorant fools who tell you what to do.

This is what the creation has been groaning for, and guess what people, that time is here and more. So run from your religious task masters and pray these words I have written on you have not been lost. Pray out loud,”FATHER TEACH ME THE TRUTH NO MATTER WHAT THE COST!” then know the incredible potential that is within you and no longer fear. Because let me be a herald and let me be clear.

THE DAY OF THE LORD IS HERE!

IS JESUS GOD or WHAT?

IS JESUS GOD OR WAS GOD IN JESUS?

Malachi 3:6 “For I am the LORD, I change not.”

Hebrews 11:1 Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things.

SO IS JESUS GOD OR WHAT?

This is the big question on everyone’s mind. Many different religions make different claims as to who, and what, Jesus is?

Here are some QUESTIONS that pop up:
Is Jesus God? Is God Jesus? Is Jesus only God’s son? Is Jesus just a prophet? Is Jesus a Man like you and I, the image of God?

The list of questions over the divine, or less than divine, nature of the man with salvations plan in hand, JESUS, has been debated for more than a couple of centuries, to say the least.

Few know the History of how Jesus came to be known as God and worshiped as God, and why there are pictures, statues, and a host of other “Icons/Idols” that represent this GodMan (as He came to be known after the votes were cast and the decision was made) BY RELIGIOUS MEN and POLITICIANS AND PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS… (Don’t we wrestle against such?) at The Council of Nicaea in 325 CE to decide the issue… In addition, when the Divinity of Jesus was established as Man Made Doctrine, it wasn’t the ONLY major Doctrine established by men, there were many others… Oh yes, what a web has been weaved by men indeed. But I have no need to teach you history, I will use the scriptures and hopefully common sense, as well as logic, to make this point. But if you ARE interested in the history of how, and when, Jesus was said to be the only “God”, you can google it. As the “Gospel of Thomas” states…

“Let one who seeks not stop seeking until that person finds; and upon finding, the person will be disturbed; and being disturbed, will be astounded; and will reign over the entirety.”

Few people truly seek out the meaning of this here mystery called life. I implore you, SEEK THE KINGDOM! Keep looking, keep knocking, keep asking, never settle (Those who settle never move forward again because they are stuck)… So, I triple dog dare some of you reading, really seek out your beliefs, find out where they originate, find out why they exist, and find the TRUTH! It will set you free.

Now, a majority of Christians say the Man Jesus is GOD, the Only One to be God. While a minority today say that God was IN Jesus, no different than you and me, as blasphemous as that sounds. But this concept is not a foreign one to scripture, as…

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.

Matthew 1:23
…and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).
– Notice the name MEANS GOD WITH US. Not God separate from us.

Jesus prayed, John 17:22…that they may be one as we are one – One cannot be divided. Jesus was praying that his disciples would come to know, what he knew, what God revealed to him, that we ALL ARE ONE.

Romans 12:4-6
4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

Yes scripture always seems to be pointing to UNITY, oneness. That we are all connected, all made of the same stuff, we are all one. And yes science agrees. Look into string theory if you get a chance. But when it comes to RELIGION, there is a very big disconnect. Many state that we are not ONE, we are not the same, we are not worthy, and only Jesus can be “God” in flesh.

So today’s essay is about Jesus of Nazareth. Before we begin, I would like to note the very first documented scriptures in the canon was written by the apostle Paul, The books of Thessalonians I believe, and Paul never met Jesus in the flesh, and wrote these books some 30-40 years after Jesus was said to be crucified. The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, didn’t appear till almost one hundred years after Jesus was said to be crucified. And many things that most Christians seem to focus their faith on, the miracles, virgin birth, Jesus being God, etc… none of these are found in Paul’s writings, who presents a much more mystical view of Jesus. Is this the stuff of LEGEND? Is it true? Or is this an allegorical telling of a great hidden spiritual truth, which relates to us all?

But once again, another topic for another time. Today we focus on whether Jesus is GOD or Not.

It would have been nice for Jesus to clear that whole mess up for us and just come out and said, “I, Jesus am GOD!” But Jesus never said that, he only called himself the “son of Man” and the “son of God” – Both of which by the way, we can say about ourselves. We are children of mankind (ignorance), and children of God (enlightened).

But let us look at the words of Jesus, to see if he spoke as God, or if he spoke on behalf of God.

JOHN 7:16
“Jesus answered them and said, MY Doctrine (Teaching) is NOT MINE, but HIS that sent me. 17 – If ANY MAN will do HIS WILL, He shall know of that Doctrine, whether it be of GOD or whether I speak of MYSELF (jesus)

Jesus also says in that very chapter in verse 42 :I proceeded forth and came from God; NEITHER came I of MYSELF, but He who sent me.”

Jesus made it clear, he did not come of himself. He said God sent him, he did NOT send himself.

Jesus is clearly saying, he is not TEACHING “his” TEACHING, but what GOD TAUGHT HIM TO TEACH. He isn’t saying, I am teaching MY TEACHING AND SPEAKING OF MYSELF… he clearly makes a distinction between God’s words and his own.

Jesus shared that he could do NOTHING of himself. If he was God, he certainly could, don’t you think?

John 5:30
By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me

Jesus seems to be pretty clear. That his “Ego/self” was NOT IN CONTROL… God was.

Now this of course flies in the face of Christianities belief in free will… But I already wrote a paper on that, feel free to find it and read on here.

Jesus also needed to LEARN to be obedient to God… Many people forget/ignore this. And guess who taught Jesus, GOD. Now if Jesus was God, and the only God, why would he need to learn anything?

Hebrews 5:8
Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered

Jesus also did NOT consider HIMSELF (Jesus the Ego Man) to be GOOD. He said ONLY GOD was good. Once again making a clear distinction.

Mark 10:18
And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

You would think that Jesus really wanted people to know that HE WAS NOT THE THING PEOPLE NEEDED TO FOCUS ON… BUT GOD! Jesus when asked, “How should we pray?” He didn’t answer them and say YOU SHOULD PRAY TO ME! NO!!! God forbid, Jesus made it clear, people needed to pray to GOD, THE FATHER!

Luke 11:2
And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth

Once again, Jesus the man making it clear… THE WHOLE POINT OF LIFE IS TO MANIFEST GOD IN THIS WORLD. And that GOD’S WILL is the will that must be done, NOT THE WILL OF JESUS THE MAN, THE WILL OF GOD… But this many Christians have a problem with… Why they do is beyond me. When Jesus was in the Garden before his crucifixion he also made clear that HE/JESUS had a separate will from God’s. Now if Jesus was God that would NOT be so.

Luke 22:42
Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done

Again, this makes it very clear. Jesus the man, is clearly not God the man. But revealed God in himself.

2 Corinthians 5:19
To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation

Notice the scripture does NOT say, God was Jesus. But that Jesus was called the CHRIST (ANNOINTED OF GOD, THE POWER AND WISDOM OF GOD REVEALED) – And that GOD WAS IN CHRIST (that Power and Wisdom) to reconsile the world (our lusts of the flesh, eyes, and pride of life) back to GOD, our SOURCE, OUR LIFE!

So why with all of this scriptural evidence do people still pray to JESUS THE MAN, and consider that Jesus the Man was God, and not simply, the first born among many brothers and sisters (meaning we are all the same/same family/come from the same source, etc)

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.

Notice, JESUS the man, was predestined BY GOD — He did not predestine himself (ego/jesus in flesh)… an important point is, we also are predestined, but once again, another essay :).

Many pray to Jesus today as God, and picture God as the Man Jesus. Many worship what God created, the man “Jesus” as the Creator… And maybe they are right, then again maybe they are not. Confused yet? Well get ready, because if God is the Literal Flesh Man Jesus as so many claim, then why is it that from Genesis to Revelation we find scriptures stating very clearly, GOD IS NOT A MAN (book of Numbers), should never be compared to anything we can see in the earth, sky, sea (Deuteronomy)… well I could go on and on, but one of my favorites is found in Romans. People state they KNOW that Jesus is GOD, and that he is completely unique from us, and separate from us, and we must ask Jesus to come into our heart… And when scriptures are shared to the contrary, they tell you how smart they are and why what we point out is invalid, because they are wise and we are foolish. (Then again, God does save these things for those the world considers foolish)….

Romans 1:22
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an IMAGE made like to CORRUPTIBLE MAN, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and WORSHIPED AND SERVED THE CREATURE more than the Creator.

Paul is basically telling the Romans that they started worshiping MAN, MANKIND as God, as opposed to worshiping GOD, which, by the way NO MAN has ever seen, AT ANY TIME.

John 1:18
No man hath seen God at any time,

So we see the dilemma. If Jesus is NOT GOD, but the SON OF GOD, and we are worshiping Jesus as God as opposed to seeing him as the express IMAGE OF GOD, then this could keep us from finding who WE ARE in the grand scheme of things. We will begin to believe that we cannot be as Jesus, that Jesus is God and we are not worthy to do as he did, or be as he was… YET, once again we bump into a problem with this belief jiving with scripture. Because Jesus himself said, WE WOULD DO GREATER THINGS THAN HE DID.

John 14:12
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father

Look, if we believe Jesus to be God, and claim this Man such, and this is yet another false teaching that could keep up from the KINGDOM OF GOD, then we wouldn’t want that, right?

NOT REALLY 😦

John 3:20
For every one that doeth evil (ACTS OUT OF IGNORANCE) hateth the light (TRUTH), neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved

Most people are unwilling to get rid of a belief that has been handed down from generation to generation. I know many wonderful people who have come into a different understanding than their families and have lost their families for such. (These families consider themselves to be Godly, but does that sound like God to you?)

The question I pose today is… Are many misled into worshipping something they should not. If there is only ONE GOD, and ONE SON (And that ONE SON is Humanity as a whole (which I believe, as that is what the name ADAM literally means), either dead in ADAM (Human thinking) or Risen in CHRIST (The Power and Wisdom of God) then why the confusion? Why do many believe Jesus is somehow far removed from us, and God in the flesh?

First of all, we all would agree Jesus never came out and said. “I am God” … He did say “Before Abraham was (I AM)” – But let’s be real, according to scripture, before Abraham was, WE ALL WERE AS WELL… And we don’t go around claiming to be God, DO WE? Well, some do 🙂 But let’s not get into that right now either.

So if this Jesus God Man teaching is error then why are so many intent on teaching that Jesus is God. Doesn’t the fact that so many believe something is true, make it true? … Doesn’t it?

Of course not! Most didn’t believe Jesus was EVEN THE SON OF GOD, so much so, that they killed him. And we know they weren’t right just because everyone agreed. “they knew not what they did”

I believe the answer is simple. Man wants to worship a MAN. We all love our IDOLS… We, just like back in the day, worship the STARS! Can anyone say Brad and Angelina? HELLO!!!! We even WORSHIP HOLY WOOD, we call it Hollywood. And the AMERICAN IDOL goes to TAYLOR HICKS! Remember him, what ever happened to that guy? Okay, maybe Taylor wasn’t our idol, but many others are.

So, Man wants to worship Man. That would be ONE reason to worship the Man Jesus as God… And scripture clearly tells us, that Jesus was a MAN. “The Man Jesus Christ”.

We are visual creatures, and we have been conditioned to only worship what we can literally, tangibly see. (yet this is NOT FAITH)…

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

Many people claim that many people LITERALLY SAW JESUS. And many people today see the IMAGE OF JESUS (who by the way looks like a MAN, when scripture clearly states we should NOT reduce God to the image of a CORRUPTIBLE MAN)

Romans 1:23
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

So faith, is believing in that which you cannot literally see, and…

Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Notice the scripture doesn’t say diligently seeking Jesus the man, but seeking GOD. Yet, many today are still waiting for a literal return of Jesus the Man, in the Literal clouds, riding a horse, cracking the Mount of Olives, with the Saints, in the Saints, as Rain, as Lightning, (The many ways Jesus is supposed to return is vast, if literal it would not make sense, but as allegory is makes complete sense.)

Many look to John Chapter One as the answer… They say, in John 1 it is clear, that Jesus is God… However…

If you read carefully, and closely inspect the text. John 1 is not saying Jesus is God, John states the Word (God’s Truth and Spirit) is GOD… And then goes on to say that “the law came by Moses, but grace and truth by Jesus Christ..” Many will say this line makes it clear that Jesus is the Word which is also God. But does it?

What the scripture is teaching is that MOSES brought us God’s Law, it wasn’t Moses’ law that he delivered, it was God’s Law.

With that in mind, it wasn’t Jesus’ Grace and Truth that Jesus brought, it was the revelation of God’s Grace and Truth that Jesus brought, as Jesus was the WORD OF GOD revealed IN MAN! … I wrote a whole essay on JOHN 1, which really goes into detail about this. It’s on this blog, called “Word Became Flesh” check it out, it might surprise you.

In the beginning was the WORD.. this is the commandment, the will, the truth, the spirit of God…The WORD is not a flesh man named Jesus.

The WORD was revealed in the FLESH MAN named Jesus… In the BEGINNING was the WORD, not JESUS the Man. Jesus (as we’ve come to know Him), the flesh man didn’t even appear on the scene until much, much later. And who did Jesus say he was, THE SON OF GOD!

Jesus in his own words told us, He was the Son of God, and Jesus was a MAN. As was, ADAM, who by the way is also the Son of God.

Adam was the 1st MAN (soulish/ignorant) and Jesus was the LAST (enlightened/resurrected)Man

Jesus was the LAST ADAM (Man)… Clearly making his humanity known.

So why the confusion, why isn’t it clear? Well I believe the scriptures are clear, it is man’s interpretation of scripture that clouds the issue. And hundreds of years of indoctrination and teaching that makes this such a tough topic to touch.

Keep in mind, while reading this essay that never once did Jesus say he was God. He called himself two things “The Son of Man” and “The Son of God”

I started this essay with a quote from Malachi = God doesn’t change. We must keep this in mind as well.

Now let’s go Old School and see with the Old Testament says God is and what God is NOT. Let us see what we CAN compare God to and what we CANNOT.

In “Deuters” 4 we see that when God “appeared to Mankind” he did not appear in any VISIBLE FORM, and we learn we should NEVER liken God to Man or Beast, or Stars in the Sky, basically anything that is seen… CHECK IT!

DEUT 4:15 YOU SAW NO FORM of any kind the day the LORD spoke to you at Horeb out of the fire. Therefore watch yourselves very carefully, 16 so that you do not become corrupt and make for yourselves an idol, an image of any shape, whether formed like a man or a woman, 17 or like any animal on earth or any bird that flies in the air, 18 or like any creature that moves along the ground or any fish in the waters below. 19 And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars—all the heavenly array—do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the LORD your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven.

Pretty clear, we shouldn’t be setting up any corrupt images of God as a Man or Woman. But let’s go further.

We know the Old testament teaches us to NEVER liken God to anything in the world, animal, mineral, man, beast, anything. Yet, as I stated earlier, many “Christians” often Compare God to a Fish on their bumper, or a Cross around their neck, or Jesus in paintings, statues, etc.

Could this be man’s biggest offense? Worshiping the Image of Jesus “the Man” as Jesus “the God”, as opposed to seeing Jesus is the image of GOD… God’s only begotten SON, which is the only way to the FATHER… (By realizing you are ALSO GOD’S SON/CHILD) – Jesus was the IMAGE of the invisible God. The scripture does not say, Jesus the man was and is God.

Remember NO ONE HAS SEEN God at any time… The SON reveals GOD… Jesus says, if you have knew me you knew God… WHY? Because Jesus revealed God. Just as the Kingdom comes without observation and is within us, so too is GOD A SPIRIT that cannot be literally seen. However, the IMAGE of God can indeed REVEAL God… and that is what WE ALL ARE… not to mention what Jesus was.

Colossians 1:15
Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

As are we (The image of the invisible God, no different than Jesus)

Now let’s chit chat about what an IMAGE of Something is, and what an Image is not.

The Image of Something is NOT the Something, it is merely a REPRESENTATION of that Something. Which makes that SOMETHING KNOWN… Make sense? I sure hope so, because I am CONFUSED by what I just wrote. 🙂

I would also like to draw attention to the words “INVISIBLE GOD” – Invisible is NOT VISIBLE. YOU CAN’T SEE AN INVISIBLE GOD! But people see the IMAGE OF JESUS everywhere they go, and back in the day when he walked on this planet in the flesh people say, they literally saw Jesus.

1 John 4:12
No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us

No one can see God, God is spirit and Truth and Love. Just as you cannot SEE LOVE! But if you have SEEN MY WIFE AND I TOGETHER YOU HAVE SEEN LOVE… That is what Jesus meant when he told his disciples, “If you have seen me, you have seen the Father.” He didn’t mean he was the Only Father there is, he simply meant, if you got to know my nature, than you got to know God, for God is the Love (Jesus revealed).

AN INVISIBLE GOD cannot be literally seen as the literal man Jesus was… But the literal man Jesus can MANIFEST (REVEAL) the INVISIBLE GOD, through fruit.

Luke 6:44
For every tree is known by his own fruit.

If Jesus is NOT GOD and JUST THE SON OF GOD, than we are worshiping as Paul puts it, the “Creature and Creation” instead of the “Creator”. And vice versa, if Jesus is GOD, than I need to wake up to this truth! So feel free to comment away, as iron sharpens iron… But worse than all this is if Jesus is NOT GOD, and we believe Jesus the MAN is, we are placing GOD outside of ourselves, and not INSIDE.

This is what it means to enter death. Christ is our LIFE… THE INSTANT WE PLACE CHRIST outside of ourself, we enter into death (ignorance). We deny the very essence of our existence and place God far from us, as opposed to seeing that God is WITH US (Immanuel).

Now, I don’t really have the time to list every scripture in regards to the matter. But I have listed a bunch below that if you cannot reconcile wisely with your own beliefs, be they, that Jesus is the SON OF GOD a Man, or Jesus is God, then you have to throw out every single scripture written below and only hang on to the three of four references that HELP YOU to believe what you believe. Many say Jesus is actually 100% God and 100% Man… Even though that would be 200% wouldn’t it?

I pray this at the very least opens a discussion among us all and God lead us to the Truth whatever that may be.

1 Cor 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.”

IS GOD A MAN? CAN HE BE A MAN

Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”

hath he said, and shall he not do it -Would God say this if it weren’t true?

Psalm 146:3 “Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.” – Jesus called himself the Son of Man.

Matthew 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. (Jesus told many he is the SON OF MAN)

GOD IS ALL KNOWING… IS THE SON?

Psalms 147:5 Great is our Lord, and of great power: HIS UNDERSTANDING IS INFINITE.

So God is all knowing, if he is, would he then INCREASE IN WISDOM? Nope! But Jesus did, as we do.

Luke 2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

Jesus’ wisdom increased. Meaning Jesus’ began to understand more and more as he grew in God’s grace. He was in process as all of us. He had to learn to.

Hebrews 5:8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

Jesus, like us, LEARN from what we SUFFER. Through much tribulation we enter the Kingdom. But there is NOTHING FOR GOD TO LEARN, because God IS WISDOM ITSELF.

Jesus also wasn’t in on, the ins and outs of how God brings about the end of the carnal man/thinking/ignorance (apocalypse)

Mark 13:32 and Matt 24:36: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in Heaven, NEITHER THE SON, but the Father.”

It is pretty Clear, the FATHER (GOD) knows all and does not need to learn. But the SON (JESUS/humanity) does NOT know everything, and grows in wisdom and must LEARN.

GOD IS ALL POWERFUL – IS THE SON?.

Jesus told us clearly he can ONLY do what the Father tells him to do.

John 5:19: Verily, verily I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do…”

If the SON IS GOD how come he can’t do anything except what he sees the FATHER DO?

Like many Christians today, we seek to do GOD’S WILL, not our own. If Jesus was, and is, God, how could he have a will contrary to God?

But watch how the SON (like many of us) wants only to do God’s will, EVEN THOUGH the SON understands he has a WILL of his OWN (outside of God).

John 5:19. … I seek not MINE own will but the will of the Father, which has sent me.

Jesus was begging for the FATHER’S WILL, if Jesus was God, he would be the FATHER and have no other WILL but God’s and would have no need to ask for it.

Luke 22:42… Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

This is my prayer all the time as well… LORD NOT MY WILL BUT YOURS… I also, pray God LET THIS CUP PASS (Whatever I am struggling with now) But I am not God. I know God has a Will for me and my life, and I know I have a will that is contrary to God. – Just like Jesus. Think about that for a moment.

CAN GOD HAVE A GOD?

John 20:17: “I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and to my God and your God.”

Matt 27:46: “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”

Matt 26:36: O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless, not as I will but as thou wilt. – (Was Jesus praying to himself?)

Eph 1:3: “Blessed be the God and Father OF our LORD JESUS CHRIST, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

Please read that again .. It states VERY CLEARLY

BLESSED BE THE GOD AND FATHER OF JESUS.

It does not say Blessed be our GOD AND FATHER WHO IS JESUS does it?

No, it doesn’t, it is clear that, like us, Jesus has a GOD and FATHER… It is clearly written.

CAN GOD BE A MAN

Jesus of Nazareth, a MAN approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you.

Would God need to approve himself? But more importantly, can God be a man?

Numbers 23:19
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Okay, pretty clear. Jesus the man. God the Spirit. Jesus is a MAN appointed by God. And GOD is NOT A MAN! Nor the SON OF MAN (which Jesus also claimed himself to be)

IS GOD FLESH AND BLOOD? THE SON IS.

John 5:37: “Ye have neither heard His voice at any time nor seen His shape.”

No one has heard God’s voice (They heard Jesus’) – No one has seen God’s shape (They saw Jesus)

John 4:24: “God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”

God is not a Man. God is an INVISIBLE SPIRIT within us and all around us. Not just that, but His kingdom cannot be inherited by flesh and blood.

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.”

No one sees GOD but the SON DECLARES him (Makes God known). Jesus is the WORD OF GOD revealed in Jesus, and now we IN CHRIST are the very same LIVING EPISTLES that are read of all men.

Many people see and hear us, as they saw and heard Jesus, but NO ONE AT ANY TIME, HAS SEEN GOD. (Can Jesus be God then?)

1 Timothy 6:15,16 God the blessed and ONLY RULER, the King of kings and the Lord of lords, who ALONE IS IMMORTAL and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see”

Paul said God is IMMORTAL, which means God cannot DIE. But the SON did die for us all, didn’t he?

IS ANYONE GREATER THAN GOD? IS GOD GREATER THEN GOD?

John 14:28: “My Father IS GREATER than I.”

Jesus taught clearly that the FATHER is GREATER then he (JESUS) is. It pleased God to allow Jesus to suffer so he would learn obedience. If Jesus is God would he need to learn anything at all? Aaaah, I think Not!

WHO ARE WE SUPPOSED TO WORSHIP AND PRAY TO?

Acts 24:14: “I admit that I worship the God of our fathers . . . ”

Paul makes it very clear, I WORSHIP THE GOD OF OUR FATHERS (Who by the way, did not know Jesus as he was not yet born into the world, but was in the Father yet to be sent) The Fathers of Paul, worshipped the ONE TRUE GOD IF ISRAEL, not a Man named Jesus.

Acts 3:13: “The God of our fathers has glorified his SERVANT Jesus”

Here we see, the God of Paul’s Fathers, GLORIFIED, his “servant” Jesus. Jesus is the SERVANT/SON of God. Who God sent and Glorified. Jesus could do nothing of himself.

Paul makes it plain as day in this next passage.

1 Corinthians 8:6: “For us there is but ONE GOD, the Father . . . AND ONE Lord, Jesus Christ”

Shall I repeat this, for us (Paul’s and company) there is but ONE GOD, THE FATHER…. AND (which means in addition to) ONE LORD JESUS.

God cannot be seen or known, the SON who God glorifies makes known the FATHER, AS THE FATHER is IN THE SON, reconciling the world unto himself.

WOULD GOD PRAY TO BE SAVED?

Heb 5:7 “During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the ONE who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.

Jesus clearly prayed to God to save him from Death. Jesus worshipped God… shouldn’t we? Shouldn’t we stop praying and worshipping a man, but know God ourselves.

LUKE 4:8 “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, THOU SHALT WORSHIP THE LORD THY GOD AND HIM ALONE SHALT THOU SERVE.”

John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, AND Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

In closing, I want to say I understand that for many this is a difficult study and for others, this is something that is already understood and it is clear as day. I also want to say, move on to some of my earlier essays, as this revelation is unfolding and there is MORE TO SEE.

Because Jesus may not be GOD alone, but that doesn’t also mean that God is the projector of Jesus while Jesus is the projection… Just as the conscious mind is part of the subconscious mind but far less sophisticated. GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU… then the YOU you believe yourself to be IN THE WORLD.

But the great falling away from the Truth has happened, and as hard as it was for me to sit and write this paper today, knowing it would offend so many, I couldn’t sit back and just allow what “Man teaches” to go unchallenged.

We must learn that there is no difference between Jesus and Us.

John 14:12
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

This is why Jesus said “I need to leave”. They were putting their faith in ONE MAN, and were not putting their faith in the GOD INSIDE thet One Man. The Man Jesus that he was bearing witness of and revealing God to those God had given him in the world.

There is so much for all of us to learn and God has not given us the spirit of fear, which I have to remind myself of every time I write one of these essays. As I know many of my friends and contemporaries may completely disagree and may even take offence.

We must ask ourselves are we WORSHIPING MAN (by calling Jesus God) and changing the likeness of the incorruptible God into that of a corruptible man.

Scripture says it is IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO BE TEMPTED… Was not JESUS tempted in the wilderness? If Jesus is God, how could he be tempted? And are not we all tempted and drawn away by our lusts?

James 1:13
Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

I also know, that no amount of biblical proof will change a heart that is blinded. For the “wise” of the world will call this foolish, but the foolish things of the world indeed confounds the Wise. And it is my prayer that we begin to see the ONE TRUE GOD.

So for those whose hearts are troubled by this essay, I pray you read and find comfort in this last passage of John.

John 14:1 Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; Believe ALSO in me.

Notice the word ALSO? 🙂
