END OF THE WORLD?

“END OF THE WORLD?”
“I go before you!”

A couple of days ago a friend of mine wrote something on my facebook page that really sent me off thinking. Flashes of what the scripture quoted meant came to me, like “lightning” from heaven. A quick word on that by the way. Lightning in the natural at night briefly lights up your surroundings. Whatever is closest to you, you will see clearly and understand it is right before you because for a brief moment the light from the Lightning revealed it to you. Lightning is a wonderful allegory of revelation, short bursts of insight.

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

Now what should be noted about this, is we are not reading here about the SON OF GOD, but the SON OF MAN. Because in the SON OF MAN’S DAY his/her revealing is as Lightning. Which doesn’t last long, but comes in bursts, in other words the son of man knows in part, the son of God knows the whole.

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

So for the time being, insight will come to us, a revealing will take place. Things will simply begin to make sense. And, as they say, like layers of an onion little by little these insights are helping us get to that sweet core (Christ In Us) – Which comes without observation. So for those that are waiting for a literal Jesus to return outside of being revealed within them, then they will be waiting until the revelation of this mystery hits them. And Jesus understood this, he understood mankind would be waiting for a “son of man” to return, instead of understanding the son of God is revealed IN THEM.

Luke 17
22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it. 23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.

Even Jesus knew that his disciples would desire to literally SEE one of the days of the SON OF MAN, but he tells them, LOOK YOU WON’T SEE IT PHYSICALLY! Remember he also reminded them in this chapter the Kingdom of heaven doesn’t come with literal observation. And now, as in times past, we have yet another false belief that “Jesus is going to return” May 21, 2011. And many, many people are DESIRING TO LITERALLY SEE THIS. But as Jesus said, THEY WON’T! He even warned that when they say, look over here, see over there, get prepared, do this, do that, GO NOT AFTER THEM, NOR FOLLOW THEM!

That is the problem today in a nutshell, too many people are following other people as opposed to follow the SPIRIT WITHIN THEM. I have often challenged people to stay away from their churches for just a week or so, stay in quiet contemplation and simply ask God to show them the truth and soon that Lightning will begin to illuminate things they never saw or heard before. It may not happen immediately, but it will happen. You can’t force revelation, but when you ask for it, IT WILL COME! But it comes when you least expect it.

1 Thessalonians 5:2
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night

Of course this is NOT speaking of a literal physical return of Jesus the man from thousands of years ago, returning when you least expect it. But it speaks as to the revelation that takes place within you, and breaks through your house of false beliefs, and takes away the false beliefs you once held, so you can be free from your worldly beliefs.

This is why we are encouraged to KEEP WATCH! Simply put, when you ask for revelation, when you are seeking God’s truth you WILL KEEP WATCH FOR IT, and it will come (be revealed within you)… when you least expect it. I’m sure if you are reading this article you already know what I mean. You have experienced it.

Paul gave some great advice in Thessalonians, he said STAY AWAKE (be enlightened) because if you don’t know that God is in control of all things when trouble comes you will be hurt, sad, and won’t see the point in it. But if you are AWAKE you know that all things work together, so you do not consider the fiery trial set before you but you have HOPE! Those who are asleep (ignorant of the truth) are being fed a constant diet of ear tickling, people telling them that if they tithe, accept their jesus, do what they say, then only good things will come their way. But these people are ignorant, and when God begins working in their lives it will seem as if they are being cursed by God, as opposed to seeing that God is merely getting them to a place where they trust only in God.

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. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

Now this verse has been taught that the SUDDEN DESTRUCTION that comes upon people is THE END OF THE WORLD! However, if anyone takes the time to re-read the next verse, we will see what this destruction is likened to… AS THE TRAVAIL UPON A WOMEN WITH CHILD! This has NOTHING to do with the destruction of the literal world around you people, it has to do with the destruction of the carnal world within you, like being pregnant, at first you don’t know you are pregnant, soon you get excited, but right before you give birth it is so painful you want to die! And yes, that is how it is spiritually! WE WILL HAVE TRIBULATION IN THIS WORLD! This is so we will learn to let go of the OLD MAN (Carnal ignorant ego) for the NEW MAN (Who we really are/God’s child).

But notice the next line… “But you are NOT IN DARKNESS that that day should overtake you as a thief” – There are many that are doing as I recommend. Many who are asking God “Teach me the truth no matter what the cost”, many who are leaving man-made religions and beliefs to find the truth within. They are the ones FAITHFULLY WAITING for their MASTER TO RETURN (be revealed). The day of this revelation will NOT come to them as a thief, because they are expecting the break in (break through).

We have way too many gloom and doom preachers out there teaching… “THIS IS THE END OF DAYS!” Oh my goodness, if they would only find out what the END OF THE WORLD really was… Take a look at what the WORLD is below.

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

This is what is coming to an end, OUR LUSTS! The very lusts that caused us all to fall (from the truth of who we are). This is the world that is coming to an end, OUR LUSTS! Because it is our LUSTS that pull us away from the truth and lead us into temptation.

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

What is it that KILLS THE WORD OF GOD again? The Thorns which are the CARES OF THE WORLD that strangle the truth of God.

Mark 4:19
And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful

This is what Christ (The Truth and Way and Light) destroys with the brightness (enlightenment) of Christ’s (power and wisdom of God) coming (revealing).

Yes the WORLD will come to an end, but the physical world is going nowhere. The only thing destroyed is the OLD NATURE. And it has too, because we are being tempted and drawn away from the truth of who we are because of it. (only a few will catch this next verse)

Psalm 106:14
But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert

Yes it is our LUSTS and our OLD NATURE that is destroyed!

Now there is a lot of talk about this May 21, 2011 date, where they say a Rapture will happen. First of all, there is no Rapture the way people teach, secondly the end is not yet IF YOU BELIEVE IN SUCH THINGS. Because the END is when you put all things under the CONTROL OF GOD. You know that GOD IS ALL IN ALL.

Let’s take this next part line by line, so you can see clearly what the END is!

1 Corinthians 15
24 Then cometh the END, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

The end comes when HE/WE (for we are the body of Christ) shall have the Kingdom of God (righteousness, peace, joy and power in the holy ghost) revealed IN US, and God revealed IN US, when WE enter God’s rest by putting down ALL RULE AND AUTHORITY… in other words, the moment we realize “who we think we are” is NOT IN CONTROL. The moment we realize is, the END OF OUR CARNAL NATURE, the END OF OUR LUSTS (WORLD) is come (revealed to us).

25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

The Power and Wisdom of God (Christ) will rule until all enemies are put under foot. And the last is DEATH. And no, we are not reading about living forever in this flesh body, for we are already eternal. The ENEMY that is put beneath God is not literal flesh, it is our CARNAL THINKING, which is the LAST ENEMY DESTROYED.

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

And in that moment all things will be delivered to you, you will understand that everything is beneath you, and you then will put yourself beneath God, so God is all there is. And you will then be set free.

1 Corinthians
27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. 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.

If you have ears to hear it. When God is all in all, God is all there is. Now that is the END OF CARNAL MAN. But not the END of the physical world. And there will not be any physical rapture. Everything that happens, happens WITHIN the heart of man, and everything outside of man is a projection of that. If anything this world will turn into a paradise when we return within to paradise. Oh how I long to see that day. But as I said earlier, we only know in part.

Yes there are two men in one bed, two women at the mill… This is the double nature of man. The carnal and the Christ. The older and the younger nature of mankind. One is Taken (joins to the truth) the other is left (cast off) – look up the meanings in Strongs, and you’ll see it has nothing to do with being taken from one place physically to another, but being taken from one place spiritually to another. Your older nature you will cast off, to allow the younger Christ nature to rule!

Ephesians 4:22
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts

We need to cast off the OLD NATURE, we have to let go of the belief that WE (OUR CARNAL EGO/WHO WE THINK WE ARE) is in control, and submit ourselves to the TRUE NATURE within us, which IS in control. It’s time we get rid of our ignorance and pray for the TRUTH!

Romans 13:12
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

So don’t worry about a literal this and a literal that. And remember that who we are at our very core is INFINITE! You may be able to say that there is a beginning and end to the SON OF MAN. Our first Lord has a beginning and an end, but our True Lord has none. So in fact the END is truly the END of something that doesn’t really exist to begin with. If it has an end and a beginning, it is created and destroyed. And God is the one who does that creating.

Notice the SON OF GOD is defined very differently. No beginning, No End.

Hebrews 7:3
Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

We have no beginning or end, for God is all in all, so there is never a need to worry about the soul of a lost loved one. Eventually God will bring all to this knowledge, and all will then revealed to be the Child of God an infinite priest.

So how do we get there? Well it is not our doing. Jesus said I go before you to prepare a place for you. Which really was the spark that birthed this article, but as always I go wherever the words lead me. 🙂

You see there is another way of look at these next passages. Read these carefully and for those that don’t like to be challenged, I suggest here is where you should stop reading.

John 14
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

Right off the bat, let me tell you the FATHER’S HOUSE is the TEMPLE OF GOD, which YOU ARE! So let go of that belief that Jesus is a cosmic carpenter building you a mansion. Because that word mansion means tabernacle or dwelling place. And we, all of us, are that dwelling place.

Jesus said he was going somewhere to prepare a place for them. You could say that Jesus was going within all of them (the father’s house) to prepare them. Which is why he says, where I am there you will be. In other words, Christ In you, and You in Christ… BUT, something greater clicked for me.

Now let me share how I see this passage, and I will simply translate it as I see fit.

“We are all where God dwells, if this wasn’t true I wouldn’t tell you that. Now I am going to God to learn more, to understand more, so I can prepare a way for you to understand how to do the same. And if I go to this place of enlightenment then I will be able to reveal this to you, so that where I am spiritually you may be also. And then where I went spiritually you will know, and the way to get there you will know, because I went there first and relayed this great truth to you….”

Now this is where Thomas comes in and asks the big question. 5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

Thomas is saying, we don’t understand where you are going, how then can we know how to get there….

The great revelation comes in Jesus’ response.

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

Notice Jesus said, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE, no one comes to the Father but by Me… He DOESN’T SAY he that believes that I am the way, the truth and the life can get to the Father…. What he is saying is UNLESS YOU BECOME ME, AND ARE WHERE I AM, GO WHERE I GO you cannot COME TO THE REALIZATION of the Father. The only way to know the FATHER is to be THE SON.

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.

The SON is in the Bosom (instruction/leading/teaching) of the Father.

Isaiah 40:11
He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

And HOW DOES THE SON declare the FATHER?


7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

The SON declares the FATHER by saying, if you have UNDERSTOOD BEING THE SON, then you will UNDERSTAND THE FATHER, and then he says because I GO TO THE FATHER (The perfect understanding and Union with God) you have known God and seen God, because in that day, the SON is put beneath the FATHER and GOD IS ALL IN ALL.

Now, I’m not going to go into much more detail about all of this, but I want you all to understand that if YOU GO TO THE FATHER, you will RETURN AGAIN and help others do the same. You will be able to lay the groundwork for them, and the work God has already done within them will bear witness and you will be able to be where The SON is also. And you too will understand that it is not FAITH in a Son, but BECOMING THAT SON that you begin to know the Father and salvation.

So go to the Father already, and I promise you I am going with you, before you, or after you, because there is no way to the Know the TRUTH without the TRUTH becoming you!

P.S. for those who want more information on why the literal physical Rapture is not true, here is a video I did awhile ago which does explain more of it. But there is also more information on this website as well. Enjoy, Jacob

Much love, Jacob

WE WHO KNEW NO SIN


WE WHO KNEW NO SIN
Until we created it of course

This essay is going to be a very difficult one for some. For others perhaps a mind-blowing ride, and then for a chosen few, who have already seen this, for “them” it will be confirmation that they are not insane for thinking such thoughts.

That being said, why don’t we get into this essay curiously called “We who knew no sin… UNTIL WE CREATED IT!” That, right off the bat should send chills up some of your spines. How dare Jacob say, Mankind created SIN. The very same man who writes almost weekly about how God is in control of all things. If God creates all things and has created all things, then surely God must have also created SIN. I mean, doesn’t scripture teach that God made ALL THINGS?

Ephesians 3:9
And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ

YES GOD CREATED ALL THINGS… but here is the key word. BY Jesus Christ. Meaning everything was created by God through Jesus. Which, you will soon learn is a symbol for us all. We were given dominion over everything. And as Jesus is SO are we in this world. Scripture states ALL things were made by the SON, for the SON.

John 3:35
The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.

So here we see God has given EVERYTHING into the son. And God made all things BY Christ Jesus. In other words, God made all things THROUGH the son, which in turn, is actually the SON CREATING ALL THINGS. Because the SON can only do what the FATHER DOES. Which is to create!

Hebrews 1:2
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;

Now what am I getting at here? And so if God creates ALL things through the son, then that must also mean God created SIN, LIES, and IGNORANCE through us. And for good reason. And if you doubt that ALL things mean EVERYTHING that is and is not, then read this scripture closely..

Colossians 1:16
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

Both VISIBLE and INVISIBLE – You can’t see THOUGHT, you can’t see FEAR, you can’t see LOVE, you can’t see SIN! – So it is obvious ALL THINGS were made BY GOD THROUGH THE SON.

Now, if you can hear this. If God creates everything by the SON, then the SON is creating non-stop. Regardless of whether or not he or she knows it or not.

Oh yes, that’s right I said HE or SHE. The reason is, as you’ll see, God only has one SON, ADAM (Humanity) the 1st and the last, the 1st Adam = The 1st nature of man. And the LAST ADAM is the last nature of Man which is CHRIST.

Now that wasn’t the hard part. The hard part is accepting, that if everything is made by Jesus Christ, and “AS HE IS SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD” – then in fact, God is creating THROUGH US ALL!

Now you say, “How can that Be? Only God makes everything through Jesus Christ.” – And my answer is, Is the man Jesus Christ creating this ESSAY, or is the man Jacob Israel? Did the man Jesus Christ create the first apple computing system or did the man Steve Jobs?

Well if Jesus Christ is the first BORN among many BROTHERS AND SISTERS, then we are ALL ONE AND THE SAME. Are we not?

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

Now how can ONE BE MANY? How can God only have one SON (as is literally written in scripture, or so many think) and how can that ONE SON be EVERYONE?

The answer is we are the ALL, and the ALL is everyone. Which is why we reap what we sow.

What we do to one, we do to ourselves. Because we are all part of ONE BODY.

The rest of this essay should help in understanding, that GOD is creating ALL THINGS through US (Jesus Christ) – Of which we have the mind of, we are the body of, and are even called by this name.

This if you can hear it, are the “GREATER THINGS THAN THESE” you shall do.

You see when Jesus arrived on the scene they wouldn’t accept the Messiah would come as a single humble man.

Well today, as they wait for the RETURN of that single humble man, they will never find that single humble MAN, because that CHRIST is IN THEM, and we are the BODY in which the SON IS RESSURECTED FROM.

Which means, (Catch this) The SON had to DIE and FORGET who he was, to be RESSURECTED to life.

The SON had to take upon himself the SINS OF THE WORLD, to save.

To know SALVATION one must first have something that needs saving.

Now how did this death COME UPON US ALL. Well the same way it is revealed in the Genesis story. SIN had to be CREATED, for HE(them) THAT knew no sin.

So who created Sin?

Let me answer the rumbling question in your mind with a simple answer that only a few will understand. the answer is “YES”. Yes, to what? To your question? To both. If we are the SON and we can only do as the Father does, and our Father and Us are one, than what God does we do. We are an extension of God, each of us. We are all the same. Cut from the same “cloth” as they say.

This should give people hope. This means, whatever we have done God has done through us, IF WE ARE THE SON (which scripture says all of humanity is). We can do nothing but what we have done. Otherwise we wouldn’t have done it.

Now here is how SIN is created in one sense.

This is hard for many to grasp. If something exists, if we did something, if there is something that we have done in our lives that we regret… the truth of the matter is, IT IS SIN to think that we could have ever done anything different. Because the only thing that exists, the only thing that was created is THE NOW. And God creates ALL things through us, for us. So when we begin to get caught up in the foolishness of the law, and begin to believe that things in our lives shouldn’t have gone the way they have gone… YOU WILL ENTER INTO SUFFERING AND PAIN, because you will believe you are a failure. HOWEVER, your situation is what it is and couldn’t be any different. Now if you understand this, than you can be at peace with whatever you have done, or where ever you are. And because of that you WONT FIGHT for more. You’ll understand whatever has been is now, and what is now will always be. There is NOTHING NEW under the sun, as Solomon wrote.

To grasp this is to know freedom. To be able to look back on your life and say, I COULDN’T HAVE CHANGED A THING, NO! To look and be able to say, I WOULDN’T CHANGE A THING is to know you had no choice. And if you had no choice, then regardless of what it was, it was an important part of your development.

Perhaps you hurt someone and that haunts you today. Well, the action of hurting that person taught you that you shouldn’t hurt others. But until you come to terms with the fact that regardless of what you have done in your life, couldn’t have been done any other way, you will never be free. You will continue to do the things that you hate.

Romans 14:22
Blessed is the one who does not condemn himself by what he approves.

This is what Paul was trying to get across. The is a law at work in him, and there is a law at work in us all, and sometimes we will do the things we don’t want to do, but we do them so we can come to the place where we stop condemning ourselves, and when we stop condemning ourselves or trying to be better than we are free to be who we truly are. GOD’S ONLY CHILD, the one that has created all things, but at the command of the Father.

Now I am not saying you can go on and do whatever you like, because it’s all meant to be, God forbid. The truth is people can not act against their nature, only a murderer who believes himself to be a murderer can murder, and until he or she realizes that they don’t need to kill to know peace, the sooner they understand hurting others is in fact hurting them more, then they will be free of the terrible act they have committed. They will cease to be the person they are not.

I’m not saying that we should go out and do wrong, God forbid. We cannot do what we aren’t capable of, and the things we do that we hate, we will only stop doing those things when we don’t hate who we are. When we stop thinking we have to be perfect, we will be perfect and whole, lacking nothing. But in the DEATH we have created for ourselves, that takes time. The good news is whatever has already happened was MEANT TO HAPPEN. And if it was meant to happen then it was for our eventually good, or the good of the collective (everyone else = the same as us).

Let me give you my definition of what SIN is. It’s definition means to “miss the mark” or “Miss the point”. I like the second. Because it jives better with many other scriptures that explain what SIN is. But I think Sin is best describe in the Proverb below.

Proverbs 24:9
The thought of foolishness is sin

To think foolishly is SIN. In other words, if you are told that it is “unlawful” to drink any alcoholic beverage, smoke a cigarette, wear makeup, wear skirts that are too short… and you believe that it is A SIN (the way man has defined SIN which is very different.) Religion has defined SIN as a terrible act, when in fact it is merely missing the TRUTH of a matter.

Well if that person has been taught you can’t wear makeup, they will feel guilt and condemnation WITHIN themselves every time they do what it is, the world and religion has brainwashed them into thinking was bad. The irony is, the longer we SEE this or that as SIN (the way religious man defines it) the longer you will be a slave to it.

SIN truly means you have missed the point. An open-minded person knows you are not offending some supreme being by having a glass of wine. (Not that I am endorsing drinking/smoking etc just using this as an example.) Once mankind decides that this or that is SIN, like to “Not go to Church every sunday” those who believe such things, when they miss church FEEL LIKE THEY ARE DOING SOMETHING WRONG. And the irony is, missing Church is not SIN, it’s A SIN to think that MISSING CHURCH is a SIN. Isn’t it funny how that works? 🙂

I ask people many times, “what do you believe”, “is there more to life”. And 99% of the time I get the same answer. I believe in God BUT I DON’T GO TO CHURCH OR READ THE BIBLE AS OFTEN AS I SHOULD. As if going to man-made church or reading the bible is what we have to do or else.

And so, in that moment when they answer they condemn themselves as if they have done something wrong, when in fact they have not. A guilt or condemnation rises in them because someone told them along the way that the only way you can know God and be a good child of God is if you read the bible or go to Church. Oh boy what a crock that is!

Oh I know what some of you will think. YOU NEED TO READ THE BIBLE AND GO TO CHURCH! Well, take that up with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, and that many, many others who had no holy book, and had no temple or church to go to, BUT HAD FAITH!

The one thing I find when asking this, is 99% of people believe there is more. And I tell them THAT IS ENOUGH! Because I know when the time is right, they too will go where they need to go and believe and know what they need to believe and know.

So really the SIN, is NOT THE ACTION, but thinking the action is wrong. Now let me be clear. To hurt others goes against the law of reaping and sowing, so unless you want to reap pain don’t put it on others. But to build a shed in your back yard without getting a slip from the town isn’t breaking God’s law, which is LOVE GOD, LOVE OTHERS, it is breaking MAN’S LAWS!

The problem is religious mankind has made so many LAWS (LAWS that are impossible to follow to a tee). And if you believe, because you have been taught by some Religious leader that to break the law of the land is a great SIN, the only SIN would be to believe that JAY WALKING is a great offence to the God, which is the Life of all humanity. So long as you are not hurting others, you aren’t hurting yourself. And to believe that JAYWALKING is a SIN because it is against man’s law doesn’t mean that it is breaking God’s law. Truly the ONLY SIN you have committed was the thought that you sinned.

When you realize this you find Liberty. The problem is, once this mindset of SIN (right and wrong, good and evil) enters the mind of man, MAN DIED. He can no long live the amazing life that was set before him.

So I am hoping that this essay will help free some of you from your past, and open your eyes to a much greater truth. The TRUTH that who you “are right now” IS who you are meant to be. And the longer you try to be somebody else, or try to be a better version of yourself, the longer you will be in the shackles of the SIN (foolish thinking) that you were brainwashed to believe you need to be something you are not. this doesn’t mean hateful people learn, HEY THIS IS WHO I AM AND I WILL CONTINUE TO HATE! No, these people HATE because they believe they need to be better than who they already are. So they project that HATE and PREJUDICE onto others, saying in the ignorance of the temporal world that they are better than people of a different skin color, or sexual orientation, or sex. You see these people FEEL A SENSE OF LACK! That is their sin. They began to believe WHO THEY WERE ISN’T GOOD ENOUGH, but once they find the TRUTH OF WHO THEY ARE, and realize they ARE GOD’S CHILD, they will no longer hate. Because they will be at peace, and peace begets peace, as hate begets hate.

The longer you believe you need to be a better person, you will NOT be the better person you could be if you stopped condemning yourself and accepted that you are already perfect within.

The longer you try to be somebody you are not, the more misery you will have, because YOU ALREADY ARE SOMEBODY!

So let’s get into this essay, WE WHO KNEW NO SIN, until we created it!

So who does scripture say brought sin into the world. And the real question is, were we BORN INTO THIS SIN? Did we inherit it as so many say? Do we have a “Sin Nature”? Or is that a LEARNED BEHAVIOR? I believe it is very clear that this is a learned behavior. And the rest of this article is why. But as all things that happen in this world and our lives, SIN was a vital part of our growth. We couldn’t be overcomers without having something to overcome. But few know that the only thing we need to overcome is ourselves, the foolish thoughts of who we think we are.

Romans 5:12-14
12Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

The answer given here is that by ONE MAN sin entered the world. And of course, you have been taught that ONE MAN, was ADAM, which in actuality is not a single literal man but is exactly what the name means in Hebrew (Mankind as a whole). ALL OF MANKIND God made and by this ONE RACE OF MAN which has many members, SIN came into the world.

Don’t believe that ADAM is speaking of everyone of us? Do you believe that there was a single Man and Woman in the garden? Well if you do that’s cool. I once believed that as well. But I was perishing for my lack of understanding. The more I studied the more I learned. The more I asked God teach me the truth the more I was taught WITHIN. Now, I have written on this “ADAM=MANKIND” subject before, but here’s a quick refresher.

Genesis 5:1
This is the written account of Adam’s family line. When God created MANKIND, he made THEM in the likeness of God.

It doesn’t say when God created one single man, but MANKIND.

Oh I get it, you want me to go a little farther back than Genesis 5, you’re thinking if ADAM is all of mankind, it should be mentioned in Genesis 1. AND YOU WOULD BE RIGHT!

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

Right there in black and white… Let US make MANKIND after OUR LIKENESS, and let THEM – Notice the word THEM, plural. But wait it get’s better.

The name ADAM IN HEBREW, the word origin is ” ed) ” which means MANKIND, anyone and everyone. So much for the single man in a literal Garden doctrine. The fact is ADAM is ALL OF US, every single one of us on this planet. This is the beginning of OUR story. An allegorical telling of the human experience, from our being made sin and falling into the DEATH (carnal ignorance) that goes along with us, to returning to our rightful place in Christ.

Like Adam we too were formed from the DUST of the earth. Dust is a wonderful allegory, of lies and foolish thinking. It’s compared to ignorance, sin, and false beliefs. And indeed we were all FORMED by this dust, which is our experiences, and what we have believed about ourselves. Our parents named us, and began to teach us, and slowly but surely this world formed you and me into what many therapists would call an EGO. A being who believes himself or herself to BE something.

The problem is, like ADAM we are too busy trying to be SOMEBODY, because since childhood we have been taught. “when you grow up you have to be somebody” “You have to make a name for yourself” or “you’ll never amount to anything”, “you are such a screw up”. Either way, both ways of parenting is wrong. Parents and teachers put their children and students under the same curse that they are under. The BELIEF that you have to BE SOMEBODY else, because WHO YOU ARE ISN’T GOOD ENOUGH. No matter if you are being told “You have to make a name for yourself in this world” or “You’ll amount to nothing” both brainwash us into HATING WHO WE ARE. That is how DEATH truly enters the world. We are taught we need to do something, to BE BETTER! And believe me when I say that this is the cause of all the suffering in the world!

When we begin to try to justify our existence by following the laws of the land, and trying to do everything that people say is right instead of wrong with our works and deeds we have forgotten that we ALREADY are made in the LIKENESS of God. And it doesn’t get any better than that! There is no improving on that!

We didn’t, and don’t, need to do a thing to be who we already were. The longer people try to be somebody else they will never be content with who they are. AND THAT MY FRIENDS IS NOT LIVING! THAT IS DEATH!

Job 40:13
Hide them in the dust together; and bind their faces in secret

The good news is we will wake from this slumber of ignorance. We will find that who we are, we have always been. We will look at all we created in our life and acknowledge that it is good and we will accept ourselves as who we are and we will rest. Yes those that are living in the DEATH (ignorance) or DUST (imagination) will rise from it. BECAUSE….

1 Corinthians 15:22
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

In the thoughts of Mankind, following the rules and beliefs of mankind all DIE (become ignorant and life becomes a burden), but this is a necessary part of the journey because after this death, in CHRIST (The power and Wisdom of God) shall ALL be made alive.

In other words, when you stop trying to be something you are not. When you stop believing yourself to be someone you are not. When you see who you really are and understand the amazing power entrusted to you, you begin to LIVE! You leave this WORLD (The lusts there of), because you know WHO YOU ARE is NOT FROM THIS WORLD. You are NOT YOUR LUSTS.

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

YOU ARE OF THE FATHER AND THE FATHER AND YOU ARE ONE! That was Jesus’ prayer, that you may come to the same understanding that he came to understand.

John 10:30
I and my Father are one.

I just want to point out. The ONLY thing the NUMBER ONE can be divided by is THE NUMBER ONE. You can NEVER MAKE two out of one. Only ONE comes from ONE. You can divide ONE an infinite amount of times and the answer will always be the same, ONE. Now if I and my Father are One, there is no difference between the Father and I.

John 14:9
Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father

But that is a different essay for another day. The point is, we need to GO TO THE FATHER!

John 16:16
A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father

The disciples didn’t understand what this meant. Many today teach that he was going to literally die and then literally rise from the dead. But what did Jesus say? “If you have seen ME you have seen the Father”. He is telling them, that one day they will understand that they are not seeing the EGO MAN JESUS but they will see JESUS’ true being, who JESUS really is, and then they will be able to see the FATHER, because they are ONE. (Once again I know I am getting ahead of myself)

Look the point is we need to WAKE UP from this madness, we need to wake up from all of our fear, worry, religious, political, social beliefs and take the shackles of religions and this worlds law off our hearts and finally be FREE.

Read this next verse carefully!

Isaiah 52:2
Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion

Now look at that verse the way I see it!

“Wake up from the ignorance of trying to be someone you are not, rise up out of your fears and ideals, and REST! Live your life FREE from worry, fear, condemnation, laws, and KNOW WHO YOU ARE a child of God who is now a slave to your ignorance and fear.

This is who you are now!

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

You are the HEIR, you are LORD OF EVERYTHING but you are like a child ignorant of who you are, so you are no different from a slave. And you are a slave to this word SIN!

Look there was a time we were alive, there was a time we DID NOT KNOW SIN. Regardless of what you were taught, when MANKIND came to this planet, MANKIND did not know SIN (which by the way, is missing the truth of who you are, it is called the FOOLISH THOUGHT as I stated earlier).

Mankind (ADAM) did not know SIN until he began to eat from the TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL. Right after he ate, he realized he was NAKED, AND HE BECAME ASHAMED OF WHO HE WAS! – Does that sound like anyone’s story here?

We came into the world as happy babies and then life gets to us, we are told what is right what is wrong. How to act, how not to act, we are brainwashed into thinking we have to be SOMETHING that someone else tells us we should be, as opposed to just ENJOYING BEING YOU!

The scriptures say, TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY THE CHILD SHOULD GO, it doesn’t say, train them up in the way you THINK they should go.

All these rules are placed on us. All these things we must do and must not do.

We begin to understand what is good and what is evil in this world. And some of these “laws” man creates are down right ridiculous. It’s no different today than Moses day, when he was saying don’t eat shrimp. Here is a great foolish example of how man takes something innocent and pure and collectively decides it is EVIL.

If you give the Thumbs up to someone, you are approving them. BUT, if you raise the Middle finger at them then you are doing something mean and bad and vulgar. You are SINNING!

Now how is it that raising a simple finger can have such drastic contrasts? Why is the Thumb Good, but the middle finger is Bad? Well how did you find this out?

Like me, you probably were a child and one day raised only your middle finger quite innocently, but your parents, or a teacher or relative, says “STOP! YOU CAN’T DO THAT!” – Then we ask “Why?” – They reason with us and explain that it means something very, very, bad and we believe it. That’s the problem. WE BELIEVE what others tells us about the world, God, life, and ourselves. As opposed to going WITHIN!

Man made up that foolish rule and pounded it in our head. Now that child, you and I, don’t have the liberty to raise our middle finger in a mall, because man’s LAW says it is evil to do such a thing and we cannot.

And so, little by little everything that makes being a kid fun is taken away from us. We can’t shout in the house, that’s impolite. We have to attend certain events, its called responsibility. We have to get schooling or you can face criminal charges, and of course you have to be taught what man has decided is worth teaching and what is unacceptable. Mankind has created all of these laws, many silly, some necessary, and each day mankind is creating more and more laws to add unto the list.

You can’t drive without a seat belt, you can’t talk on the phone, you can’t text and drive, you can’t turn right on red, you can’t cross the road unless it is in a designated place. You can’t stand in one place on a public sidewalk too long, you can’t do this, you can’t do that. The list goes on and on. Mankind loves to make laws, even better is mankind’s religious nature. These are INVISIBLE laws, and make your life even more miserable.

Not only do we have all these man-made laws for the physical world, no you see that isn’t enough to suck the life out of us. Mankind went so far as to create spiritual laws, religions, denominations, traditions, and like teaching your children to make the sign of the cross before you pray, or to always end your prayer with “in jesus name”, you have to be baptised, you have to tithe, you have to believe exactly what you are taught, and you MUST NEVER QUESTION of THINK INDEPENDANTLY. You have to be straight, you can’t be gay, can’t dress different, can’t have long hair, you can’t BE YOU! And that is NOT LIVING, that is DEATH!

And the religious and political system, that mankind created, BECAUSE THEY WERE ASHAMED OF WHO THEY WERE! — Mankind didn’t believe they could be who they were, they believed they have to do something WORTHY of being who they already were. And the instant you begin trying to be who you are, YOU STOP LIVING YOUR LIFE and you DIE. You existence becomes a futile chore, you lose all hope, because everywhere you turn you fun and enjoyment is being sucked away from you. That is ONLY of course, IF YOU ARE IN THAT SYSTEM. You see you can find the truth of who you are, and LIVE by the many ridiculous laws of this land and LIVE your life, instead of letting your life live you. You can be OFF THE WORLD, but not IN THE WORLD. Jesus said that. But he also said, that once you are enlightened to the TRUTH of who you are. YOUR ENJOYMENT OF LIFE will irritate the hell out of people. LITERALLY!

John 15:19
If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you

When you understand that YOU ARE NOT A PRODUCT OF THIS WORLD, but that THIS WORLD IS A PRODUCT OF YOU… then you will be free!

John 17:16
They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world

That’s right, WE CREATE! Whether you know it or not you are creating your life, whether that is a life of misery and defeat or one of peace, YOU CREATE IT. You create what you BELIEVE! Whatever a man believes in his heart, that he becomes! If you had faith you could move the mountains of pain out of your life, but that starts by giving up TRYING to remove it, and just knowing it will be removed.

ADAM (mankind)Adam was born WITHOUT the knowledge of sin, he ONLY knew sin after he ate OF THAT TREE. We ONLY know sin once we start believing all the rights and wrongs, and this and thats, and what everyone says we must do and become, and what everyone says we are. Once we buy into this, once we ASSIMILATE (eat/become one with) what is produced by the almost infinite amount of LAWS man has created, we reap the fruit of it which is DEATH.

We didn’t know sin, until some taught us about sin. Paul said he didn’t know sin, until the Law came…

Romans 7:9
For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died

The LAWS of the land are meant to frustrate us. They are meant to kill us. They are meant to drive us to the point where we don’t want to live in this hell of a world anymore. The reason there is war, prejudice, hate, famine, poverty, disease, and more is because mankind created LAWS that we cannot possibly follow. And because of out insecurity in not being able to “measure up” as we have been taught to, we try to compensate by outwardly becomes a fanatic about things. And then in ANYONE threatens the laws that you believe you must follow… LIKE THE BELIEF IN ETERNAL TORTURE, if anyone threatens this false belief that you have been conditioned to believe in OUR ELSE, than you will want to silence that voice!

You are not a SINNER that is hell bound people. You are in hell (suffering/ignorance/vanity) because you have SINNED (FOOLISHLY THOUGHT) you were a SINNER FROM BIRTH in need of a SAVIOR.

But every single person on this planet is a child of God.

1 John 3:9 – whoever is born of God cannot sin, for his seed remains in him and he cannot sin.

AREN’T WE ALL BORN OF GOD? And when we realize this then we can be free from SIN. And the only way to do this, is to stop trying to be something you are not. Take a look back at your life, accept that where you are is what you have created for yourself, and begin to LIVE your life!

Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE.

He is simply a picture of us. He was telling his disciples a great truth, I am the way, the truth, and the LIFE. I am LIFE! The reason is he knew HE AND THE FATHER WAS ONE! He didn’t have to do anything but LAY DOWN THE LIFE HE HAD. And all we need to do is the same. Give up trying to be someone you are not, get the revelation that you are GOD’S CHILD, and if God’s child that ONE WITH GOD.

You can only do what the Father wants you to do, because you are one. You grab hold of this and you will know the joy of the LIFE YOU HAVE. And you will no longer let your life live you, you will live your life. And you will be able to look back on everything that you have created in your life and say IT IS GOOD! In that moment, when you can accept that ALL THINGS HAVE WORKED TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD OF THOSE THAT LOVE GOD, than you will LIVE!

There will come a time in your life, or has come, when you will do as God did.

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

You will hate the LIFE you have created for yourself (which was God creating within you) because you and the Father are ONE. And it will grieve your heart, that your mind is on pain and suffering and evil all the time. And you will want that MAN that you created DEAD!

Genesis 6:7
And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them

You will LAY DOWN YOUR LIFE so you can finally take up LIFE. You will ENTER THE ARC, you will go within for the answers and you will go through a time of being tossed back and forth with everything that comes your way. But when peace arrives at your door to heaven (your mind) you will see the world in a new light and you will be free!

GO TO THE FATHER! (This phrase alone does not mean go to a separate God, for you and God are one) – It means accept that! And trust that everything in your life was a necessary, and is a necessary part of the plan to get you to where you are RIGHT NOW! Then put off the conversation with your old ignorant nature and begin a new one!

Peace Jacob
