On Earth As It Is In Heaven

Hold unto your bibles everyone because this short essay is going to reveal something that will indeed light a fuse within you that will burn bright for all the world to see. The question is…

Who will believe our report? and to whom is the “arm of the Lord” revealed?
Isaiah 53:1

By the way, the ARM of the LORD simply means… Who will exercise the power and wisdom of God in this world? Who will make their earth as it is in heaven… and KNOW they are doing so. (I will explain this further soon)

Who will see what the blind cannot? Who will put their lives where their mouths are?

A wonderful passage from the Gospel Of Thomas comes to mind… Jesus said: He who seeks, let him not cease seeking until he finds; and when he finds he will be troubled, and when he is troubled he will be amazed, and he will reign over All.

Today I posted a simple sentence. “If we believe we know better we have ruled out the possibility of ever learning more.” This powerful sentence must be acknowledged because if you came to this website, and to this essay believing you already know all there is to know than you will learn nothing at all.

However, if you come here because, as the Gospel of Thomas declares, you are seeking… then you MUST continue to seek if you are ever to find.

In addition, a wise man knows there is always more to know. Especially when it comes to the “Lord’s Prayer”. Which happens to be a prayer of great significance I dare say. Considering, it is the ONLY PRAYER Jesus gave as an example of HOW WE ALL SHOULD PRAY (communicate with God, or the great I am, Inspiration, Source, or whatever name you attribute to “THE EXISTING ONE”, which literally is the translation of the word “LORD”.

“A creator creates, and an infinite world of possibility awaits those who SEEK AFTER IT.” – Thomas James

And when you do SEEK after (whatever “IT” is that you hope to find here in this essay) I promise you might just find “IT”… IF, you aren’t “CERTAIN” you already know all there is too know about this prayer.

And then IF “Wisdom” permits what you find in this essay may even “trouble” you. Just like that quote from the Gospel of Thomas.

“Troubled”, because what you once believed may not be the truth after all, or it may no longer be the truth you need.

And when this “FOUND WORD” or “New Revelation” meets your long held belief system there may be a fight. You may either find yourself rejecting outright what I share in these next couple of pages, or you may JUMP RIGHT IN and find that this truth can set you free.

Of course any new idea, at first, is troubling. Few like change after all. Regardless of how foolish is to hate such. Considering, LIFE IS CHANGE!
CHANGE is ALL LIFE IS.

Without CHANGE there is no growth, and without growth, a person no longer TRULY LIVES. For life itself is GROWTH!

This is why I hope your spirit is troubled whenever you visit here. Just as it was in the parable of the man trying to get healed in the Bethesda pool. We find HEALING in the TROUBLING OF THE WATERS (doctrines/understanding) indeed.

I would like to point out that in the parable it is said, the WATERS are troubled by an “ANGEL”— which really simply means a “MESSENGER”.

And who is this messenger that wants to trouble the waters of BETHESDA’S POOL today? — ME 🙂 More over I believe this is a WORD in due SEASON.

pool

Notice it is a CERTAIN season…

4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

Let us view this a different way… in a TIME OF CERTAINTY a messenger shared a MESSAGE that TROUBLED the collective belief pool. Ironically, in a TIME OF CERTAINTY a CERTAIN MAN believes he must be helped by another to be healed.


5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

This “certain” man who wanted into the pool of troubled waters is very much like those who think they know it all already. They are “certain” of how things are meant to be. No growth there. This man was CERTAIN he needed help from another. The people there were CERTAIN that they needed the literal waters to be stirred up to be healed. EVERYONE was CERTAIN that healing came OUTSIDE OF THEM, and yet… the TRUTH IS from the beginning everyone has the power to PICK UP THEIR MAT AND WALK!

This CERTAIN man, believed he needed another to help him. He gave away all of his power. This is why he was called IMPOTENT, because HE, like many today ARE WAITING for a SAVIOR instead of simply SAVING THEMSELVES by following the pattern left before them.

Many of you reading this understands what that means. While others still believe that JESUS did all the work. As opposed to seeing that JESUS WAS THE ONLY WAY… meaning, do what he did, know what he knew, and love. This is what a LEADER SAYS… follow me… do as I do… THIS IS THE MESSAGE THAT HAS BEEN MISSED.

Luke 9:23
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

NEWS FLASH EVERYONE…. Jesus NEVER claimed to HEAL ANYONE!

Jesus always stated very clearly…. YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WHOLE!

DID YOU CATCH THAT? Please let that sink in…

Matthew 9:29
Then touched he their eyes, saying, According TO YOUR faith be it unto you.

According to YOUR FAITH not Jesus’s actions.

So when Jesus came up on this CERTAIN MAN who believed that he needed ANOTHER to help get him where he wanted to be… Jesus saw him CAUGHT IN THAT “LIE” — (YES, another way of looking at this passage)

6 When Jesus saw him LIE, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

And so… just as Jesus asked the impotent CERTAIN man who believed the lie that he had no power at all… I ask you…. WILL YOU BE MADE WHOLE?

BECAUSE the TRUTH, I promise WILL set you free.

So, if this following exploration of what the Lord’s prayer really means, troubles you, remember soon you will be amazed to find out what it means, and when you do, you will RULE over every aspect of your life.

YOU FAITH WILL MAKE YOU WHOLE!!!!

Now pay attention… and see if you CATCH THIS…

Jesus asked the man… WILL YOU BE MADE WHOLE?

The question I would then ask Jesus is… “HOW IS ONE TO BE MADE WHOLE?”

And this is where the Lightning Comes From Heaven…. “YOU FAITH HAS MADE YOU WHOLE!”

Matthew 9:22
But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WHOLE. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

And why is that?

Because FAITH is the Lifeblood of CREATION. And we are CREATORS… Because we are the offspring of a CREATOR.

And it is OUR FATHER’S WILL that all be saved from the LIE we are all CERTAIN of… that WE HAVE NO POWER AT ALL.

When in fact….

Matthew 18:19
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching ANY THING that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

And where is the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN?

IT IS WITHIN YOU… Within the IDEA of YOU… The IDEA OF YOU (Who you believe yourself to be) is the IMAGE of God. Just as my child was made in the IMAGE of my wife and I, so too are we the off spring of the Great I AM… the EXISTING ONE…

Which brings me to the crux of this essay. This morning a wonderful new friend of mine here on Facebook named Daniel Skillman (look him up on Facebook) has come into some deep and wonderful insight… THE pool of his collective understanding was troubled as well, and because of it HE became amazed and now is sharing some wonderful thoughts and questions with everyone.

This morning he raised the question, “What does… FATHER YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN,” mean?

The LORD’S PRAYER indeed… I have taught on this subject before however I believed that I should dedicate one paper to this alone. I left my thoughts on his page.

Our Father, Who art thou in heaven

The first thing we must look at is where this is all taking place… WITHIN YOU… We are not praying to some far away distant God, you MUST know this by now if you have found this website.

We also must recognize it is OUR FATHER — not MY FATHER or YOUR FATHER — The one who created me also created you — and this CREATIVE FORCE of SPIRIT AND TRUTH AND LOVE is within us all.

The very next thing we must look at are the words….

Your KINGDOM COME — The KINGDOM is “righteousness (right thinking) peace and joy” — and the word “COME” means “to be manifested, or revealed”

It is the same word that is used for when Christ COMES (IS MANIFESTED/REVEALED) within us 😉

So the prayer continues…“Your Kingdom come” = “May the right thought, peace and joy be revealed within me”

Next we MUST really look at “YOUR WILL BE DONE” — the first obvious thing we MUST address is what is GOD’S WILL?

Ready for this?

It is the FATHER’S WILL that ALL BE SAVED just like the certain man. It is the Father’s will that all be made whole.

John 6:39
And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

And GODS WILL is done ON EARTH as it is in HEAVEN.

The scripture’s reveal that the EARTH is a symbol of Man’s ways and thoughts while HEAVEN is a symbol of God’s ways and thoughts.

Isaiah 55:9
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

So one could say this prayer is about a total unity of HEAVEN and EARTH… God’s will performed by man… with the understanding that we are in the Father and the Father is completely within us… THAT WE ARE ONE!

and ONCE we realize this… THAT WE ARE ONE… Then we are made whole.

Now watch this… another way of looking at the prayer…

That YOUR WILL BE DONE on EARTH (in the temporal and physical) as it IS in HEAVEN (spiritual and mental) — that THE TWO BECOME ONE!

This is GODS WILL…. that can only be done… by understanding….

WHATEVER IS BOUND IN HEAVEN IS BOUND IN EARTH… whatever is loosed in heaven is loosed in earth…

OUR FAITH makes us all…

And with FAITH ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

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

It is interesting to NOTE that … WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE AS WELL…

Luke 1:37
For with God nothing shall be impossible.

That should get your ATTENTION quick…

That should TROUBLE your waters because this is a huge revelation if you have ears to hear it.

With FAITH all things are possible… With GOD all things are possible… FAITH makes you whole… GOD makes you whole….

FAITH and GOD seem to do the same thing…. Isn’t that interesting?

Think about it… YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK… You are RULED by what you believe…

People today refuse to believe that they are co-creating their life, both the good and the bad… and yet, their EXPERIENCE is a direct result of what they BELIEVE is HAPPENING AT THAT PARTICULAR MOMENT.

So, it can be said… that GOD is your FAITH… and FAITH is your GOD… in a manner of speaking.

And so the prayer is that WE WOULD FULLY UNDERSTAND that GOD’S WILL is done ON EARTH as it is IN HEAVEN.

Meaning… we are either ruled by the GOD of this world (faith in fear, lies, shame, regret, worthlessness, hopelessness, etc) or we are CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH GOD (FAITH) — LOVE, AND THE SPIRIT (THOUGHTS) OF TRUTH.

This is a major key to the Kingdom people… The fully understanding of the LORDS PRAYER…. one must fully understand WHAT THE WORD “Hallowed” means….

For many, it means a name to be revered… Like Our Father your Name is soooooo very holy…. and this is the way it has been taught.

However, that is NOT what the word HALLOWED means…. Here is the definition: to render or acknowledge, to separate from profane things and dedicate to God…

CATCH THAT…. Our Father who art thou in Heaven… ACKNOWLEDGE the TRUTH and SEPARATE from the ways of the world… Your NAME is to ACKNOWLEDGE the truth, or render it… and to separate from the profane… Hallowed does not means “Holy is your name”

The only prayer there is IS to ACKNOWLEDGE who we are within separate ourselves from who we are not without and to fully understand that YOUR FAITH creates your reality. The WILL of the ONE WHO EXISTS is to UNITE the SPIRIT MAN with the INTELLECTUAL AND SENSUAL MAN — so the TWO BECOME ONE FLESH.

Ephesians 2:15
Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

The prayer is a reminder that WE HAVE A PART TO PLAY with everything that happens in our life. Because it is GOD’S WILL.

Matthew 18:18
Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Our FAITH will make us whole… WE ARE RULED by our FAITH… We are the projection of our faith into this world. This is why our experience is always whatever we believe it to be.

So I pray today the waters have been troubled indeed, and this has led the way to amazing possibility, and you all realize that YOU and the FATHER (EXISTING ONE) are ONE.

Forgive and Forget?

forgive

Forgive and Forget?

The title for this short article many would say is a pipe dream. What I mean to say is, most people believe it is next to impossible to truly forgive and truly forget being wronged by others. Many of us are still carrying around the pain of yesterday, yesteryear, and most still hold on to the pain of things that happened decades ago.

I, myself, for years carried around the pain caused by those who wronged me in childhood, from the school yard bullies, to friends who betrayed me, loved ones who abused me, and more. The result of this created in me such an insecurity that even today, sometimes, if I am betrayed, mocked, or hurt by those I love in any way, and it is a relationship that is no longer a vital to my every day life, family, or growth, I may find myself sometimes quietly forgiving those who wronged me while also escorting myself to the door.

You see, forgiveness does not mean you must continue to allow people to wrong you. Forgiveness means, you are ready to let the pain go and move on. Forgiveness means instead of seeking revenge, you seek peace. Forgiveness means, instead of hurting those who hurt you, you offer the opportunity to be whole again. Forgiveness means you no longer bring up the past, you let it go because it no longer exists.

The word “Forgive” has two definitions that people must clearly understand. 1) To cancel a debt = this means if someone has wronged you, you don’t need retribution, you don’t need recompense, you simply let it go and it’s all good. 2) stop feeling angry or resentful toward someone for (an offense, flaw, or mistake)

If truth be told, and we are honest with ourselves, we will see how rare it is to find someone who actually forgives.

It is typical to find this ignorant behavior in marriages today. This is why we also find more than half of every marriage ending in divorce. When a fight begins, instead of simply forgiving each other and making it right, most married couples take up arms. Sadly, most couples choose to make war instead of love.

When husband or wife feel wronged, instead of talking it out and forgiving each other their petty complaints, today we find these small trivial disagreements exploding into name calling, character assassination, the silent treatment, and more. We find those who are supposed to love each other, so polluted by their years of never learning the great lesson of forgiveness, wanting to hurt their husband or wife. This ignorant behavior is not just found in marriages today, although most prevalent, we also find this type of behavior in almost every family, between friends, colleagues, neighbors and more.

This my friends cannot stand.

I wrote a poem years ago, about a son returning home to his father. His friends hurt him and he was angry, so angry in fact that he wished they were dead. The father said he wanted to show his son something. The father took the boy outside and dared him to hold a ten pound weight as long as he could, he challenged his son stating that he bet the boy couldn’t do it for long. And just like most immature children the angry son wanting to prove his father wrong struggled to hold that weight. The boy’s arms began to throb with pain, tears fell from his eyes, until finally the boy let the weight go. – The father patted him on the head and said, “You see son, it always feels better to let things go.” – That was the moral of this poem.

Our anger, our resentment toward others is as a weight upon our heart. As long as we hold onto bitterness toward anyone we cannot know peace in our own life. Until we forgive, we are doomed to replay, and re-live, that pain over and over and over again.

This is explained in scripture, but we have misunderstood it for years.

Matthew 6: 14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. 

This doesn’t mean, if you forgive people who wrong you, that the things you have done wrong in your life will be forgiven by some far away distant God… No! It means if you let another’s trespass go, you won’t be tormented by the pain of holding onto it.

Jesus on the cross, said, “Forgive them, they know not what they do!” This is a great lesson for us. Because when we understand that people only wrong us because of their own ignorance, and because of what is going on with them, we understand that we don’t have to take their actions personally.

We can rise above the pain other’s cause us, as a plane rises above terrible storm clouds to find a quiet and peaceful journey.

Usually, when people snap at us, it has nothing to do with us to begin with. Yet, if we are insecure and know no better we allow another’s actions to get under our skin and soon we find ourselves lashing out in return. And I promise you, no good comes from “getting even”, or “showing them how wrong they are”.

Life is as a garden, whatever we sow into the world we reap in return. There is a lesson in that, because that means that when people do things that could hurt us, most likely it is a judgment upon us for something else to begin with…. Meaning, everything that happens to us in life is happening for our growth. Each day we are given opportunities to create peace, harmony, and joy, instead of re-creating the same old, same old.

And so, if we looked at others who wrong us, as we would a young child who really knows no better, we would be able to shake it off, smile, and show them the love it takes to gently guide them back to their right mind.

If Jesus believed what they said about him, it would have really hurt him. However, knowing it wasn’t about him, it was about them, he was able to endure the cross.

That being said, forgiveness does not mean that you must continue to put yourself in harms way. If those who have wronged you do not repent of what they have done, if they don’t consider your feelings, right or wrong, and want to justify their behavior as righteous and instead would rather let a relationship fall apart than make it better, than one is not obliged to continue on.

When the prodigal left his Father’s house, it most certainly broke his Father’s heart. He knew his son was making a big mistake, and he knew that it would eventually catch up to him. Yet, his father did not follow after his son, he did not make attempts to prompt his return, he simply loved his son and waited every moment of every day with open arms for his return home.

This, this my friends is how we must wait for those who left us, hurt us, betrayed us, mocked us, abused us, and more. We must “forgive them, for they know not what they do,” we must allow them to choose their path, and we must be ready with open arms for their return.

There must NEVER be an end to our forgiveness. Because we are all one.

Matthew 18: 21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.

The reason there must NEVER be an end to your forgiveness is because, you may experience the same betrayal, hurt, and trespass from those you have previously forgiven. If you want to have joy and peace in your life, then there can NEVER be an end to your forgiveness. You must be ready each and every day to LET IT GO… Because YOU DESERVE TO BE HAPPY!

You often hear people who are angry saying, “those jerks don’t deserve my forgiveness!”, and so they hold unto their bitterness and anger and the result is they are never free from the feeling of being wronged, betrayed, or worse. What most people don’t understand is forgiveness is not for the offender it is for those who are offended…. forgiveness releases us and allows us to be free!

This is why scripture commands that all anger, resentment and bitterness is put away.

Ephesians 4:31 – 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you…

You CANNOT have a truly peaceful life if you are at odds with another. It is IMPOSSIBLE to truly enjoy your your day, much less your life, if there is someone out there that YOU consider an enemy.

A person cannot be hot and cold at the same time. You cannot be angry and happy at the same time… If you have bitterness and resentment in your heart true joy cannot be found.

Job 21:25 – And another dieth in the bitterness of his soul, and never eateth with pleasure.

It really should not be a secret that FORGIVENESS is the key to a peaceful life… Yet, today very few would agree with the “offer the other cheek” philosophy.

For those who aren’t familiar… Jesus taught if someone offends you, or strikes you, to allow it, he went so far as to say, “offer the other cheek,” – the scripture in many places command us to live at peace with all men, to never repay anger with anger, and to never avenge ourselves…

As long as we are at war with others… we are at war within…. This is why we MUST BE AT PEACE with others… because it is only when we are at peace with others that we have peace ourselves… and PEACE IS A CHOICE PEOPLE! We can choose NOT to repay evil for evil, we can choose to overcome evil with good.

Romans 12:17-19 17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

God is not mocked, whatever a person sows they will reap… those who hurt us do not deserve our punishment, they deserve our love, forgiveness, charity, and yes pity… because they will reap what they have sown.
Many speak of salvation today… most don’t know what that really means, but they understand the concept. Most today are taught, that GOD FORGAVE US by sacrificing his son and because of his sacrifice and forgiveness we all can enter into eternal life… Well this is a mystery, but the keys to entering into this REST that God promises is found in the words “forgiveness” and “Sacrifice”
To truly forgive, we MUST sacrifice our life (our desires, wants, name, reputation, etc) for others… to truly forgive others so we may INHERIT peace, power, and perfection we MUST lay down our anger, or bitterness, our resentment, and allow peace to take residence in our hearts by forgiving those who hurt us.
Salvation is being freed from all suffering in this world, and the only way to know freedom is to forgive and love even those who have done us wrong.
Matthew 5:46 – For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
The reward in life is not found in what is easy, the reward is found in overcoming that which is hard. The secret path to peace is forgiveness… for when you LOVE your enemies you saving yourself from the pains of this world. FORGIVE AND LIVE IN PEACE EVERYONE – it is the key to a joy filled, remarkable, life.
Luke 6:35 – But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest!

EQUAL WITH GOD?


EQUAL WITH GOD?

There is a war going on in your mind Ladies and Gentlemen. You may not even be aware of it. Never the less, every evil under the sun is a result of the unrest within the heart of mankind. This essay is meant to help bring this to an end.

You see, there are two voices in your head, one that leads to life and peace and one that leads to death (suffering/ignorance). The scriptures do a great job expressing this duality. We understand that a double minded man is unstable in all his ways because mankind cannot serve two masters. A person cannot hate and love at the same time just as a person cannot be selfish and charitable at the same time. You see there is a choice that needs to be made. The problem is we have been conditioned since birth to listen to the wrong voice/thought. And so we often follow after pride and hurt feelings doing what we should not, because the wrong voice convinces us “we are in the right.”

Now this deceptive voice disguises itself as you, but it is NOT you. It is an adversary to the REAL YOU. Scripture tells us that one’s enemy is found in his own house. This “house” we often read about is a symbol of a person’s sense of being/soul. And so when we hear this adversaries voice within us, within our sense of BE-ING we can often mistake it for true guidance and ignorantly follow after it. Sadly, when we follow after the wrong voice we find nothing but suffering in return.

Most of us are ruled by this voice. We become so used to the wrong voice that we become slaves to it… The end result is great sorrow.

Psalm 13:2
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

This enemy, this deceptive voice within you is the “YOU”, you sometimes think you are, in your most selfish and prideful moments, BUT ARE NOT! This is the “god” of this world we read about in scripture. This lying voice in our head keeps us blinded, it keeps us from our true potential, as well as from a life of peace and power.

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

This “voice” is the great dragon that makes war with children of God. It is the Father of all lies, the devil, otherwise known in psychological circles as the ID, or as I like to call it, the carnal ego of mankind.

For a better understanding of this voice, after reading this essay, simply watch my video “the trumpet sounds”, or read any article I have on here about the devil/carnal ego of man.

Now this BEASTLY VOICE, also known in scripture as the “Anti-Christ”, this pretender, this monster of a carnal ego or ours doesn’t not have a separate voice, it sounds like us when we hear it within. It uses our own voice against us. What I mean by this is, we process thoughts in the language of our birth within, our thoughts are like an operating program. Each person follows the commands within to know what to do next. The problem is, somewhere along the line, another program (much like a computer virus) was planted and now these TWO VOICES are growing up together, within.

Matthew 13:24-26
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

At first it is very difficult to tell the difference between the Wheat (which are a result of the truth) and the Tares (a result of lies). When we are immature in the faith it is very difficult to know which voice really has our best interest in mind.

The reason being, this adversary, this “strange woman” as scripture describes it, hides within our minds and feeds us selfish lustful thoughts tricking us into doing its bidding. It does this by also tricking us into thinking we are justified to do that which we should not do.

This enemy wants you to think that YOU are the most important person on the planet. That the world and everything revolves around you. Now while in essence this is true, for you are the beginning and the end of your experience… SO IS EVERYONE ELSE. We are all in this together. We are all ONE. However, this voice wants you to think that YOU ARE GOD. That you can do as you please. This voice convinces YOU that you are the judge the jury and the executioner if the situation permits.

Ironically, this is also how you can tell if you are under the thumb of this enemy. If you think higher of yourself, if you leave peace and unity for anger, fear, shame, and division, if you stop loving others, YOU are being ruled by the voice of this “strange woman”.

This is why Jesus said, all one needs to do is LOVE and the law is fulfilled.

Matthew 22:
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

This above scripture also teaches us the only way to KNOW GOD IS TO LOVE. If you DO NOT LOVE your neighbor (any one besides yourself), as scripture states… YOU DO NOT KNOW GOD. The scripture goes on to say… because GOD IS LOVE.

Now I would like to take a brief moment to address something about this above scripture. Because of the line “God is LOVE”. The reason is many have reduced God to simply being an emotion because of it. Scripture states, God is Love… hence many state that is all God must be.

Yet, scripture states God is much more than that and if we are going to use scripture as source material for our faith we must truly examine this claim.

Let me list a couple of passages that also describe what God is… and then I will explain what the word “IS”, in “God IS love” really means. The first of which I believe many must grab hold of today… and that is, GOD IS NOT 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?

Deuteronomy 4:24
For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire

Deuteronomy 4:7
For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the Lord our God is in all things that we call upon him for?

Deuteronomy 33:27
The eternal God is thy refuge

1 Chronicles 17:2
Then Nathan said unto David, Do all that is in thine heart; for God is with thee.

Psalm 75:7
But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Habakkuk 3:19
The Lord God is my strength

John 4:24
God is a Spirit

2 Corinthians 1:18
But as God is true

The scriptures tell us no one can know God at anytime, that God’s ways are past finding out… Jesus himself said, that the FATHER WAS GREATER THAN HE. The scriptures state, that no one knows the times or the seasons but the Father. Jesus makes it clear that the FATHER’S WILL is greater than HIS PERSONAL WILL. For years, many evangelicals made the mistake to say JESUS WAS GOD. I have an essay that disputes this. And now today, many ex-Christians have seemed to start a movement founded on the idea that MAN IS GOD. I understand, that things I have shared may have sounded this way as well, however, this was never my intention. We are NOT the creator of all things, we are a co-creator, ONE WITH THE ONE THAT IS ALL THINGS!

And while, I would find it hard to believe ANYONE CAN TRULY KNOW “GOD”, as God’s ways are past our conscious mind’s ability to find out, just as we cannot know what it is that makes our heart beat…. WE CAN UNDERSTAND that to know God… ONE MUST LOVE! For LOVE is the pinnacle of creation.

Everything that is, and is not, and is yet to be, is the will of God. God is in all, through all, and IS all.

This is why Jesus thought it not robbery to make himself equal with God. Because he understood that God was IN him, and he was IN God… and yet, Jesus would never allow anyone to think that he was GOD… This is why he told the rich man, “why callest thou me good… there is NONE GOOD but the Father”. I would like to point out, that Jesus never said “I AM GOD” — instead he said, “before ABRAHAM was I AM”… BIG DIFFERENCE.

Let’s look at that scripture here Jesus supposedly claimed to be equal with God for a moment:

Philippians 2:6
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

Let us break that down… The word FORM means an EXTERNAL EXPRESSION of something, you know LIKE AN “IMAGE”.

The word “EQUAL” does not mean “one and the same” however! Obviously, that would contradict his other claim that ONLY GOD WAS GOOD… The word “equal” in Greek is translated better as “to agree together” to be on the same page, as scripture describes “One accord” –

The root word for equal “Eido” means “to see, to perceive, to know” —

Jesus was saying, it wasn’t a bad thing to be of one accord, to be ONE WITH in word and deed, THAT IT WASN’T TAKING AWAY FROM GOD TO TRULY KNOW GOD, to truly EXPRESS GOD… AND YES, TO DO WHAT GOD CAN DO!

Just it is NOT ROBBERY to see, to comprehend, and to express the very wisdom and power of the spirit of “God” within us in the temporal plain.

This IS what we are… “Christ” – The power and wisdom of God.

Jesus understood, that if People SAW him, they also could “SEE/Understand/Perceive” God… for he was in God, and God was in him… He, like you and I, are the OUTWARD EXPRESSIONS of “Him” — we are GOD’S IMAGE — God is the spirit of LIFE that is our source, which animates us, WHICH IS THE TRUE US… for we are all ONE.

Ephesians 4:4-6
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

The word “I am that I am” translates better as “I will become whatever I will become” – I will be whatever I will be… and that explains why each of us seems to be so unique, while at heart we are all ONE AND THE SAME SPIRIT.

In the past, I have described God as Love and truth. I have gone on to share that we and God are One. Meaning, that IN HIM WE ALL HAVE OUR EXISTENCE…

Acts 17:27-29
27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

In addition, I have said, WE CREATE! Of course we create… We can make joy and peace, or war and misery. The reason is, the SPIRIT WITHIN US is not mocked… whatever a person sows they will reap!

You see people mankind was given dominion, the scriptures state “all is created by the son, through the son, and for the son” and WE ARE THE SON (elohiym/gods) – YET WE ARE NOT ALL GOD IS. We are a unique part of the whole.

Colossians 1:15-19
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
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 fullness dwell

WE ARE NOT GOD ALONE… We are the IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD, THE FIRSTBORN OF EVERYTHING! Everything was created BY us and for US and by US do all things consist… So in a sense everything that is IS God, but we are NOT while we still walk around here with our human identity.

Jesus said, I go to my Father for he is GREATER than I am… And I say the same.

If you have seen me you have seen God… but GOD IS SO MUCH BIGGER THAN LITTLE OLD ME!

Now, that other voice in our head may try to trick us into thinking WE ARE IT, this is depicted in the scripture where Jesus was tempted (drawn away by his own lusts) by the Devil (the ID, Carnal Ego, Strange Woman, father of all lies) but his response is one we all must meditate on, especially today when we see so many declaring such.

Matthew 4
10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Now in a sense, Jesus is also saying… Zip it Ego… You work for me… The word Lord “The one who truly exists” – That is God, and yes Jesus, and We are as much of God, as God is us… We are IN him, and He is IN us… YET instead of acting like we are the creator of all things… we MUST serve others (for they are us as well). What we do to one, we do to ourselves.

The DEVIL in this story… is the “YOU” YOU THINK YOU ARE! It is your separate identity. And it wants WHO YOU REALLY ARE to bow down and worship it. Sadly, so many today are doing it ignorantly. This is why we see so much suffering in the world.

And while others today are simply reducing God to an emotion called Love… All one needs to do this is dig a bit deeper into these scriptures as opposed to taking it to mean what it states literally.

The word “IS” in this passage, is the third person singular of “to be”, indicating MOOD…. “to EXIST in, or to BE IN, LOVE”… GOD IS NOT SIMPLY LOVE! “God” is simply a word to describe the indescribable life force that everything consists us. And what the scripture “GOD IS LOVE” is explaining is…. You cannot even being to think you KNOW GOD, UNLESS YOU LOVE! Because LOVE is the evidence that you are at PEACE with yourself and everything… WHICH IS GOD.

In addition, when you don’t exist “IN LOVE”, which creates harmony and peace, you will find yourself in a world of hurt.

So when we follow after the “lips” of this “strange woman” (as scripture describes this adversary, ID, Carnal Ego, Anti-Christ, etc) telling us WE ARE GOD AND WE CAN DO WHAT WE WANT we find only suffering.

Now, this suffering as it turns out is a GOOD THING. It is a Karmic Principle at work. It guarantees our safe return to the UNITY that we are.

2 Corinthians 7:10
For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation

This is why scripture states, all will come to the knowledge of the truth and the stature of the perfect man, all will be saved, all of creation will sing praised… every wrong will be made right, every tear will be wiped away… and more!

If we stepped out of unity with one another and we did not suffer because of it, we would forever be lost. However, since we do reap what we sow, we do learn after being burned by our ignorance, it is better to do good than bad, to love rather than hate.

And so we MUST learn to ignore the voice of this “strange woman”.

Now, to do this we must first acknowledge there is a problem to begin with. WE HAVE TO GET OVER OURSELVES. WE HAVE TO GET OVER THE IDEA THAT WE ARE RIGHT AND OTHERS ARE WRONG.

Wherever your heart is your treasure will be found. Meaning, if you want to be in distress you will discover distress, if you want to follow after drama, you will be rewarded with drama. So too, if you want to be at peace eventually you will.

If we want our suffering to end, we must find a way to IGNORE this counterfeit voice in our head.

WE MUST RESIST THIS DEVIL SO IT FLEES.

James 4:7
Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

This will offer you a first step in the right direction I pray.

Proverbs 2:16
To deliver YOU from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flatters with her words. 17 Which forsakes the guide of her youth, and forgets the covenant of her God. 18 For her house inclines unto death, and her paths unto the dead.

As a Man in a committed relationship it troubles me to see how many marriages are torn apart by adultery. Now while this is a real world issue, the real reason behind it is a “spiritual” one.

Let me first point out what the word “spirit” means. You see it isn’t anything truly supernatural at all. The word SPIRIT is simply a word used to describe your thoughts and words. All over scripture we find this. Whether it be the “spirit of truth” or the “spirit of lies”, the “spirit of God” or the “spirit of the world”, one does not have to go far to find this.

2 Samuel 23:2
The “Spirit of the Lord” spake by me, and his WORD was in my tongue.

The spirit of the Lord (existing one) should be understood as one’s TRUE THOUGHTS. Jesus explained that his words were spirit, and they were LIFE.

John 6:63
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

It is ALL ABOUT THOUGHT people. The problem is, too many today are focused on the wrong thoughts/voice in their head. This is a result of many years of conditioning on the part of our parents, our peers, and society as a whole. Since birth we are programmed to put our mind on the things of the FLESH and the LUSTS thereof.

Romans 8:5-6
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Now the works of the Flesh should be evident to us MAKING IT EASIER to follow after the SPIRIT. However, the Flesh (Carnal ego) is at war with the Spirit (God) and this is why we find ourselves in the predicament we are in.

Galatians 5
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
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.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

So what does all of this have to do with LITERAL MARRIAGE and ADULTERY? Well, we understand the things that are NOT SEEN by those that ARE.

So, as we see great division in the literal marriage bed, we also must understand this is analogous of the division we see in our hearts and relationship with God (SPIRIT of truth, love, power, life, unity).

More than 50% of marriages end in divorce. In addition, many more that are married are miserable rather than happy and fulfilled. Not to mention how many have affairs to try to compensate for the lack of love and excitement they find in their own marriage. And so they listen to the wrong voice in their heads and go behind their spouse’s back, whether physically, emotionally, or both. Now, I pointed all of this out because these “literal” adulterous relationships speak volumes about what is going on spiritually today.

As I stated earlier, the LITERAL is always an ALLEGORY or PARABLE of the SPIRITUAL.

By the things seen, we understand the unseen. In fact, everything that happens in our life explains where you are spiritually. You can know where a person’s heart is by the treasure they seek.

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

For many in a literal marriage, sadly, it seems all too easy to be led away into an adulterous relationship with a strange woman or man, that is to say, a woman or man beside the one who has stood by the spouses side and loved and adored them, just as God loves and adores each and every one of us.

We will begin to see that as a Husband and Wife leave a literal marriage for an affair with a strange man or strange woman, mankind is also lured away spiritually to have an adulterous affair with their carnal mind/devil/id. In a sense cheating on the truth of “God” for the lies of this world (our lusts). Which, really is nothing more than people believing things about God, those around them, and themselves, that just AREN’T TRUE.

When lust takes hold of a person’s thoughts they follow after that “STRANGE WOMAN”. Anytime a fearful thought arises within us, deceiving us to follow after it, it makes it possible for that person to enter into this adulterous affair.

And like any literal adulterous relationship, at first the man or woman is deceived into believing this new relationship is just what he or she needs. However, the truth is, no affair ends pleasantly. And to return to the true marriage, whether in one’s heart or home can be very difficult.

The man or woman who left this true relationship/marriage will feel shame, may end up with a disease and will perhaps be punished by the true spouse for doing such a thing. A separation may occur or even divorce and families will be torn apart because of it all.

You see, as dangerous as a literal affair is, so too, we find pain, suffering, guilt, shame, and separation when people leave the TRUTH for the lies of that “strange woman” (false beliefs, lies, false gods, idolatrous beliefs, etc)

More over, just as the temptation is always present to stray from Husband and Wife, the temptation to stray away from our true husband (Christ= The Power and Wisdom of God) is one hundred fold stronger.

THE FLESH LUSTS AGAINST THE SPIRIT! The NATURAL rejects the SPIRITUAL!

Now for those that think CHRIST is a single, literal man. I have to tell you, this is a false teaching. For CHRIST is in ALL MANKIND, Christ is the LIGHT of the world and our LIFE is hid in Christ. We have to stop seeing Christ as a LITERAL SEPARATE MAN, and start seeing Christ as what I wrote above, the spirit of LIFE AND GOD that is within all MANKIND – the anointing of God’s truth and wisdom and power.

1 Corinthians 1:30
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

1 Corinthians 1:24
…Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

For those who say, “No! Christ is just Jesus” I will direct you to John 1.

We are meant to be LIVING EPISTLES (WORDS of truth/spirit of truth) – WORDS/SWORD of God – We are AS JESUS, AND JESUS AS US.

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

When we understand that the WORD OF GOD, which according to scripture is TRUTH, is within all mankind then we can move onto step two.

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

Step Two, is then seeing that this Kingdom which is the WORD of God, which if our LIFE and TRUTH is meant to be seen (SYMBOLICALLY) as a Husband to us. In other words, we are to become ONE WITH IT. To express the WORD of God outwardly. To GIVE BIRTH to the CHRIST WITHIN.

Just as a Wife may leave a Husband, and a Husband may leave a Wife, for an affair causing heartache… We can leave the TRUTH for the LIES of the world, enter into an adulterous relationship causing heartache as well.

This is why we see so many instances in scripture of an adulteress, prostitute, or cheating spouse. This is a great allegory of how we have all gone after the STRANGE WOMAN (lies of religion and the world) and are hurt because of it.

The story of HOSEA (which in HEBREW means SALVATION) is a wonderful allegory of how much pain is caused by our adulterous affair with the LUSTS OF THIS WORLD.

Hosea 1
2The beginning of the word of the LORD by Hosea. And the LORD said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the LORD

Notice, how the LAND had committed whoredoms/ADULTERY. And what is a “WHORE” but a symbol of a woman or man who cares very little about themselves, or those they sleeps around with, for pay or not.

And this, in effect, is what we do spiritually every time we lay down with a false belief. It is all a parable of spiritual adultery. If you’ll receive it. This is also why we see so many literal marriages ending, so much cheating, and so many miserable people in this temporal/physical world.

What we see in the physical is an outward manifestation of what is going on within.

The lies of the “STRANGE WOMAN” is ruining the spiritual, emotional, and physical lives of so many. Once you learn to avoid the “Words=Thoughts” of this “Strange Woman” you will be like GOMER when she finally is healed of her many hurts and enters into a true relationship with her Husband “SALVATION” again. And then NOTHING shall separate you from SALVATION, which is LOVE again.

Romans 8:38-39
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

YES, WE ARE SAVED FROM OUR IGNORANCE… AND IT IS LOVE THAT SAVE US!

And this EVERYONE will come to understand, but first we must learn to avoid the “STRANGE WOMAN’S” words, which are lies, false beliefs, etc.

Like literal and physical sex, once the two become one, a child is conceived.

And so spiritually, once you become one with a lie or false teaching/belief, a spiritual adulterous child (belief system) is formed.

Just look at the ALLEGORY of ABRAHAM and HAGAR. God said he would give him the child of promise (Isaac=symbolic of Christ birthed within). Yet, Abraham didn’t trust God’s WORD as TRUTH, so he believes the only way to get what he so desperately wants was to have an adulterous affair with his wife’s handmaid/slave. This slave is symbolic of (A belief system of bondage). And when Abraham leaves the PURITY of his marriage bed to produce what he wants he gives birth to ISHMAEL.

The 1st born is of the earth, earthy (ignorant)… Ishmael was NEVER meant to inherit a thing. FLESH AND BLOOD cannot inherit the Kingdom of God (righteousness, peace, joy, and power). Our carnal effort will bring us nothing but heartache.

Soon Abraham learns he has to get rid of HAGAR and ISHMAEL or the TRUE SON (ISAAC) that God promised, would be killed by the child of the adulterous affair.

There are many references to the STRANGE WOMAN in scripture. She goes by many names, the ADULTEROUS WOMAN, the harlot, even the WHORE OF BABYLON, and these names speak of the thought of rebellion (which is witchcraft).

Let me give you an everyday example of how the “Strange Woman” can work. Not super-spiritual, just everyday life and how this “strange Woman” works her evil ways in your life…

Your loved one is supposed to call, or your loved is late from coming home from work… NOW thoughts flood your mind, but are these thoughts ones that build faith and give you peace, or are they thoughts of worry, fear, anger and dread?

Do you think, “He, or she, is on her way nothing to worry about”? -OR- does your mind go to a darker place … “It’s an affair I knew it.” “He’s in an accident and probably died.”

The question is, what thoughts dominate your mind.

You see, God hasn’t give us the SPIRIT OF FEAR. No, GOD’S THOUGHTS toward us, are not fearful, hateful, pride filled, jealous thoughts…. God’s thoughts toward us are PEACE.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

When you grab hold of that then you will ONLY GRAB HOLD of thoughts of peace, which give you the EXPECTED END, salvation from any situation!

However, if you listen to the voice of the STRANGE WOMAN (your carnal ego, id, devil) you will find only pain and suffering.

The voice (thoughts) of the Strange Woman (the carnal mind) speaks only fear to our hearts/souls… And so we must remember God has NOT given us the spirit of fear.

The STRANGE WOMAN will fill our head, with confusing thoughts. When situations in our life arrive, we get scared, worried, and then we find all we can do is focus on the WORST. we don’t know which what to do, which way to turn, we think our lives our over as we know. We find only pain and hurt instead of peace and joy.

YET GOD, is not the author of confusion, is He?

1 Corinthians 14:33
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace

An author WRITES thoughts, RECORDS thoughts on paper. We see here God does not write CONFUSION and FEAR into our thoughts, but he writes thought of Love and PEACE. And so every time we leave this peace, we in fact are entering into an adulterous spiritual affair with our enemy the carnal ego. This is bad news.

Now, knowing this, you would think that every time worry creeps up into our hearts that we would do as Christ taught us and take those thoughts captive and cast them out. YET WE DON’T!

2 Corinthians 10:5
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Notice, the word IMAGINATION… You see Fear, as my dear friend, David Fields would say, is FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL…

In other words, these horrible things that we constantly worry about are ignorant imaginings NOTHING MORE.

Now CHRIST is LIFE, PEACE, SOUND MIND, HOPE, SALVATION! So, anything, ANY IMAGINATION, that exalts itself against the knowledge that GOD DOES NOT GIVE US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR… MUST BE TAKEN CAPTIVE AND CAST OUT!

We must begin to really PAY ATTENTION to what thoughts we are thinking.

If the thoughts we are thinking do not bring peace to our hearts, it’s a good call, those thoughts are NOT OF GOD! And if they are NOT OF GOD, they are NOT TRUE, and if they are NOT TRUE, than they are LIES!

And we shouldn’t be worried about a bunch of nonsense lies should we? 🙂 Of course not!

Now why on earth would we do this?

Well it is because we have been conditioned to exalt fear in our lives over peace and we have been conditioned to think higher of ourselves than others. This is why the world is the way it is.

Why there is so much pain, hate, war, rape, the list goes on and on. Because this hellish world gets all of us addicted to the voice of the STRANGE WOMAN. We love listening to thoughts of fear, our televisions remind us that we should be SCARED! We are so used to being selfish fearful animals that to believe we should have hope, and have power, and that love and forgiveness should rule us… SEEMS RIDICULOUS!

And so instead of casting down these negative thoughts we commit our attention to them, and together we begin to birth out of our REBELLIOUS WOMB (soul) all sorts of hell….

When our spouse is late for example, we immediately think the worst,”There was an accident” “She is cheating on me” “Someone killed him” “I told her not to wear that necklace out of the house, she was robbed it must be” “I knew I couldn’t trust that cheat!”,”We’re never going to make that payment”,”My kids are going to fail in life”,”I’ll never be happy”,”Life sucks”,”Everyone hates me”,”I’m going to lose my job”,”I’ll never get ahead”…

LIES, LIES, LIES PEOPLE!!!! And we’re ADDICTED TO THEM! And so for hours, days, weeks, months, years we worry and worry every bit of peace in our hearts away… “Why?” you ask.

Because we followed the VOICE OF THAT STRANGE WOMAN.

Whether it be us worrying about losing our jobs, relationships, finances, weight loss, children, EBOLA, my goodness the list goes on and on and on. We worry and are tossed to and fro with such fear that it is no wonder people end up doing such horrible things.

The voice of a Strange Woman is DECEIT itself.

God warns us to listen to only his voice…. But we know darn well, that we have been conditioned to NEVER listen to the truth… THIS HABIT MUST BE BROKEN.

There are spirits (thoughts) that minister and help us, and there are tormenting spirits (thoughts) that rob and hurt us. And the Strange Women is the mother of Torment itself.

SO, how do we move away from the ignorance of this adulterous spiritual affair that seems so appealing to us? Well, scripture has a few things to say about it.

Proverbs 5:1
My son, take my wisdom to heart, and turn your ear to my understanding:

Let us study to be quiet and listen to the calming voice of our Father. Let us pray for Godly wisdom which is a tree of life and learn understanding. Let us learn to discern (tell the difference between) the voice of the kingdom and the voice of the whore of this world.

Proverbs 5:3
For the lips of a strange woman taste like a honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:

The same goes for RELIGIOUS TEACHING that are not true. You see the STRANGE WOMAN’S LIPS taste like a honeycomb (symbolic of enlightenment/truth) and her Mouth is smoother than oil (symbolic of wisdom) which is why religious lies are so appealing to us, because they seem like they are enlightened truth! However, when we follow after lies we find the end of it all is destruction.

Look, it’s easy for us to listen to the tormenting spirits/thoughts in our mind instead of the true godly ones. It’s easy to follow after that temptation and ignorantly go down that hellish bunny trail created by fear, worry and doubt. But we must learn to stop… We must learn to stay with the VOICE OF TRUTH, as a MAN STAYS WITH HIS WIFE, AND A WIFE SHOULD STAY WITH HER HUSBAND.

WE MUST LEARN TO TRUST GOD, BY ONLY TRUSTING THOUGHTS OF PEACE.

Proverbs 5:4 But her (strange woman) end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.

As mentioned earlier, all affairs end badly. And that also goes for believing the wrong thoughts that come to mind. If you believe you are cursed, then you will be cursed. If you believe you are blessed and deserve peace and joy, then you will find it.

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

An affair with the STRANGE WOMAN leads us directly into the pit of hell. And HELL (our ignorant torment) is a spiritual place that many of us cry from day and night. Hell is here and now in our minds, and many times we find ourselves weeping and gnashing our teeth because we left the Voice of Truth for the Lies of the “strange woman”.

Proverbs 5:6 Unless you should ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that you cannot know them. Hear me now then, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.

Unless we CONTINUE to think on heavenly things, unless we push forward to the truth and always stay positive in our mind we will NEVER be free from the STRANGE WOMAN and her beguiling, and tormenting ways. Unless we continue to hold fast our confession of FAITH, which is CHRIST, who is WISDOM, PEACE, SALVATION, LOVE, HOPE, POWER, SANCTIFICATION and REDEMPTION, we will always be in torment.

WE NEED TO THINK ON THESE…

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

So, may the Lord teach us to take EVERY THOUGHT CAPTIVE… and teach us to discern our thoughts to know whether they be of the Lord or not… and let us BOLDLY WALK INTO THE GARDEN AGAIN… wiping all the sweat of worry and fear from our brow forever. Because a CHILD of the STRANGE WOMAN will never inherit the FATHERS HOUSE, YET a child of the KINGDOM DOES AND WILL!

If you continue to follow after lies, you will never inherit YOUR FATHER’S HOUSE (THE KINGDOM OF GOD where God exists – LOVE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND JOY)

Judges 11:2
And Gilead’s wife bare him sons; and his wife’s sons grew up, and they thrust out Jephthah, and said unto him, Thou shalt not inherit in our father’s house; for thou art the son of a strange woman.

There is hope for us. There is a rest for us all. We don’t need to continue on a path of worry and dread, because if we do our lives will never know the Kingdom OF God prepared for us all.

We are not God alone, as the strange woman states… but we can be EQUAL WITH GOD, ONE WITH GOD, when we LIVE TO LOVE and FOLLOW AFTER PEACE IN OUR HEARTS!

So test the Spirits (your thoughts) to see if they be of God or not? Test your thoughts to see if they bring you peace or anger and fear. Then begin to choose which thoughts to listen to and which to cast away. This will free you forever from the lure of the Strange Woman and you will know the abundant life waiting for us all.

Hope this blessed you all. Please do subscribe, share and tell the world… that THERE IS MORE!
Much love to you and yours, Jacob
