THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE LIFE

I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly! What wonderful news and what promise is found in those words. Yet many have no idea what abundant life is, much less about how one can find it. Well, the good news is you have no need to look any further. Abundant LIFE is a “NOW” event and everyone has access to it. You need not wait for heaven, in fact it is heaven that is waiting “within” for YOU. I have written this essay so that YOU too might have this abundant life Jesus spoke of so many years ago. This is not about religion, this is not some new age philosophy, this is the greatest of all treasures and the journey taken to find it, the most rewarding of all. It is my hope that these words open your eyes to a whole new way of living, where the sky is NEVER the limit, faith is the only currency and where peace, love and joy never ends. This essay of course is free, and I encourage you to share with all those you believe will benefit from these words, as well as subscribing to this website if you haven’t already for many more essays and videos shared here. Enjoy and thank you will all my heart, Jacob

LET’S BEGIN!

Today, let’s face it, life can be hard. The day-to-day grind can make you feel like your not truly living your life at all. For many, the hope, passion, and dreams they had as children has long been cast aside. The days of magic and wonder have been replaced by struggle, boredom, and disappointment.

Now that is a very sad and true. This is what David meant when he wrote…

The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me. (Psalms 18:4, 5 KJV)

The cares of this world can steal our life away, robbing us of heaven (which is righteousness, peace, joy, and power) and trapping us in hell (which as you should know by now is not some future torment but the torment found in ignorance and focusing on all that is wrong and not all that is right.)

This is why some, if not many, will say, “Life just didn’t turn out the way I had hoped.”

For some, life is so painful that they may try to numb this pain with work, alcohol, drugs, or pretty much anything that can keep them distracted from the “misery/death/hell” they believe, has become of their life.

As the scripture states, the snares of death (which is your ignorant carnal mind) prevents you from truly living your life.

The “death”, or the “dead”, we so often read about in scripture has nothing to do with physical death, but a spiritual death, a death of the very LIFE we are meant to live and is rightfully ours to live… It is the death truth and wisdom and righteousness (which means RIGHT THINKING)

People become more focused on everything that is wrong as opposed to what is right. People have been tricked into focusing on everything they don’t have, everything they can’t do, and everything they haven’t done, instead of focusing on all they have, all they can do, and all they have done already.

Once a word of hope or a dream is planted in our heart before it begins to take root, our enemy the ego comes along and strangles it. Our Ego works hard to keep us hardly working, keeps us lazy, focused on limits and circumstances. Our Enemy the carnal ego squashes our dreams and whispers in our ears… “Leave what you can do today until tomorrow” and then when tomorrow and more tomorrows come the ego whispers in your ears and says, “you see I told you that not something you could ever accomplish.” To make things worse the ego will then condemn you after you give up on trying to truly live your life by calling you a failure and lazy and worse.

This is what Paul meant when he wrote…

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

You see my friends, LIFE is filled with possibility, it is the very essence of creation itself. We are all creators, each day we are given a new canvas to paint on and when you are spiritually minded there is NO LIMIT. This is why the scripture states, “all things are possible to those that believe”, and again, “with God All things are possible”.

The problem is this LIFE and LIBERTY, that is our very birthright, is stolen away by years of negative conditioning which after a while we accept as the status quo. This scene is pictured in Adam’s fall in the garden after eating of the enemy’s knowledge of good and evil. And the punishment for EATING (believing) the fruit of this tree is DEATH.

This DEATH is now sadly the “life” we are all now living, but there is hope! Our hopes, peace, joy, dreams… our LIFE is still within us all.

The same is true with any seed… The SEED may appear dead and in this world may have “died” but the LIFE that once gave life to that seed always remains within it’s perceived death. Not only that, once that SEED springs back to life (resurrects) it produces countless more seeds that produce countless more… This is why “as the grains of sand and the stars of the sky so shall your descendants be”.

THERE IS HOPE… As Jesus said, “he is not dead as you think but sleeps”… We have been tricked into think heaven and the resurrection that I am writing about happens at the end of time, or when Jesus returns, which is why Martha said, “I know he will rise on the last day.” However, Jesus replies with words we all need to believe and experience today…

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me (my words) though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? (John 11:25, 26 KJV)

The death he spoke of that we all will RISE from has never been a future event… As he said it is a NOW EVENT! He that BELIEVES shall LIVE!

And he spoke the words of LIFE, which was the TRUTH that sets us all free, and when heard Lazarus sprang back to LIFE.

My friends, this is the day we are all living in. This is the day when we will all RISE and LIVE! BUT WE HAVE TO BELIEVE! Not just believe that we can have the MORE ABUNDANT LIFE that the scriptures testify to, but then we must also WALK OUT this faith with fear and trembling of what death we might return too or never escape from if we don’t.

Now LIFE first begins within and then is expressed without. Such is the case for all things, everything that is, has been, and is to come. Everything in life first begins with the THOUGHT. This is what SPIRIT is.

Jesus said, “my words are SPIRIT”… Words are the manifestation of inward thought projected outward. This is why the scripture states that CONFESSION must be made. The we MUST speak those things are not yet as of they are!

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:10 KJV)

Righteousness again is “Right Thinking”, it is all about Truth and Lies. Whatever you believe you receive. Whatever you sow you reap.

Right thinking comes first by believing the good news… Which is the TRUTH of who you really are, not who your ego has convinced you you are, and what you are truly capable of… Both joy and sorrow, compassion and hate, pleasure and pain, victory and defeat… The whole of your experience begins and ends with what THOUGHT you attach yourself to and what you carry out into your world.

After you believe and put on the mind of Christ next confession is made unto salvation, this is always followed by your deeds.

And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds. (Acts 19:18 KJV)

It is NOT just enough to believe that your thoughts create, you must then focus your thoughts on the things that you want to create. You must take your thoughts captive and test these spirits to see if they are LIFE or DEATH. Not every thought/spirit in your head is to be trusted, many are lies of the Ego. Many liars have convinced us to believe in the wrong thing and to deny the truth of who we really are, instead of denying the thoughts of who we think we are. So we MUST pay attention to every thought in our head.

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1 KJV)

The RIGHT mind-set will always produce joy. The wrong will always produce the suffering you have experienced for far too long.

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. (Proverbs 17:22 KJV)

If you RESIST the enemy, your carnal accusing and condemning ego the devil and those lies you believe keeping you stuck will flee from you and you can LIVE AGAIN!

The ego is a THIEF because it steals your LIFE away from you the moment you take it’s lies, make it your belief, and project it into your world and allow it to become your reality.

So I come today, as Jesus came so many years ago to say…

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:10 KJV)

The very LIFE and HEAVEN you are waiting for is waiting for you! All it takes is YOU to believe it, speak it, and you will receive it.

This is a great mystery for “God SAID…” and it was so. Again the scriptures state that “LIFE and DEATH are in the power of the tongue”.

We WERE alive once until the LIES came… And we DIED!

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

Like the story of Adam before the fall, Adam was alive and not ashamed, until he ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil… The instant humanity began living by the lies and laws of this world, humanity lost touch with its true potential, unity, joy, and power.

But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. (Genesis 2:17 KJV)

The instant we ate the poison/lies of this world, we became brainwashed and began to believe we were something we were not, we began to put our faith in everything outside of us instead of within. We became separate in our own imagination and became an enemy unto ourselves. We began to believe that if we act the way we are told to act, believe what we are told to believe, if we never question, if we conform and we follow mans law we will one day know peace. But we have all been deceived.

What has happened? Why is it so many just want to stay in bed and so many wish they would never wake up at all? Surely, this is not what our lives are meant to be. Somewhere along the line we got lost and traded our joy, hope, and peace, for fear, shame and misery. It’s like many people have simply giving up on the idea of living for more than just paying the bills and staying out of jail. It’s like somewhere along the line people have simply thrown up their hands and said I would rather die than dare to truly live.

This, this my friends is the DEATH scripture speaks of and this is what this essay is about. It is about finding your LIFE again! It is about remembering who, and what you truly are, as well as what you are truly capable of. This essay is about being born again out of the death that has become of your life. It is about LIVING people, which is something so many of us forgot.

The very way we are supposed to live our life is to know the truth of who we are and what we are capable of. Religion, politics, society, and the ways of this world bury this truth in the grave of our ignorance.

The truth of who we are and the way to a more abundant life was put to death within us, as pictured in the crucifixion of Jesus.

Jesus told others he was the “way, truth, and life” … And this is what was put to death within is all for we are all crucified with Christ, as Paul said.

In ADAM all die… In the first ignorant man all suffer… But in Christ ALL are made alive.

So we understand by the story of the crucifixion that the TRUTH and the WAY of TRUE LIFE was put to death at the place of the skull (our thoughts) … Religion demanded the WAY of LIFE and TRUTH to be put death because those trapped in religious thinking are already dead in their sin (foolish thinking, lies, false beliefs, tradition) … Because those religious and worldly-minded people are ruled by their enemy the ego.

The EGO is the creator of all the lies you have believed, it is the very killer of truth, life, liberty and joy. Jesus explained this to those who wanted him to stop telling people the good news of who and what they were. Which is why he called them twice DEAD and the offspring (product) of the enemy, which is called the Devil and Carnal Ego.


Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44 KJV)

But the truth of who we are still creates, because that is WHO we ultimately are. So whether we create a life of peace and joy or misery and death… WE DO IT ALL!

For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. (Romans 14:8 KJV)

So what is DEATH?

DEATH is IGNORANCE. Death is what you are living right now, IF you don’t have the truth. DEATH is the loss of understanding and wisdom. Death is the suffering of one who has forgotten who, and what they are.

Proverbs 21:16
The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.

In DEATH there is no memory of who we are, and what we are capable of. In DEATH people are not grateful, they have no joy, no peace or rest.

Psalm 6:5
For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

The DEATH of a LIFE is a far sadder fate than the death of a physical body. This death is something we all have experienced.

The DEATH we read about in scripture, is the DEATH of truth, wisdom, and understanding. And ALL have fallen short of WHO WE ARE. In ADAM (which is the first idea of who we are) all died… but in Christ all are made alive again.

Jesus wasn’t saying, if people believe in me they will rise from literal death, what he was saying was people are already DEAD and once they hear the truth he had to share and believed it, even though they were dead/ignorant they would RISE AGAIN and live!

We are DEAD because we are existing in a lie. And the lie is so deep and so pervasive that it affects every aspect of our life.

We believe we are something we are not, believe in fairy tales that are not, and the very TRUTH that sets is free we have been conditioned from birth to not only ignore but RUN from. We are taught to entertain this truth is the very heart of blasphemy.

The days we are in are indeed the days where good is called evil and evil is called good… Meaning, the truth many will consider a lie, and the very lie that people call truth is the very sin (missing the mark/truth) that brought us all into this miserable state.

So DEATH is our ignorant suffering, which is also called hell if you don’t know that already, hell is the grave, it is the weeping and gnashing of teeth you experience because of your ignorance. This state of mind is a result of our SIN. And SIN as I have explained in the past is “missing the mark, missing the truth, missing the point of life”… Sin is our foolish thinking.

The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men. (Proverbs 24:9 KJV)

So how did this happen? How did we all forget the truth and fall into the darkness that has become of our life?

Jude 1:6
And the men which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

Now before you go and jump to the sinful conclusion that everlasting chains is infinite torture… Let me set you straight as Paul was SET Straight road on his way to Damascus …

Our first estate is perfection, unity, heaven, it is bliss. Our habitation was truth and we left that state of mind and entered into the bondage of ignorance (darkness)

The EVIL EGO, our enemy led us there… We left RIGHT THINKING for EVIL (Incorrect thinking) and entered into darkness which produce the death we suffer from.

To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; (Proverbs 2:12, 13 KJV)

But we can, and will, be set free when we BELIEVE the good news. Which is why the previous passages in proverbs 2 is so profound.

When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: (Proverbs 2:10, 11 KJV)

We will all be QUICKENED, which means the truth will once again take a dominant role in our lives and we will begin to walk out our salvation and we will once again LIVE the LIFE we are meant to live.

Ephesians 2:1-3
2 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

The life of DEATH you are living is a result of living by the perverse ways of this world… And we have had our conversation with these lusts, with greed, envy, hate, defeat, insecurity, loss, and more for long enough.

This death, is the very hell our lives have become. Yet we will all rise from this grave of ignorance when PROPER JUDGEMENT returns.

Why do you think is it called the DAY OF JUDGMENT of JUDGMENT DAY? Your MIND is the GREAT WHITE THRONE and the day will come and for many has come and is now coming when you will separate the lies from the truth, the wheat from the tares, the goats from the sheep.

In that moment, the moment you CHOOSE LIFE and confess it and express, it you will send your ignorant beliefs, insecurities, lies, and hang ups to the FIRE of TRUTH within you to be burned away for ever!

The power to LIVE is in you, it has always been in you, it IS YOU!

It is time to RULE and REIGN with this wisdom… when you live and inherit all things and become ruler of ALL as Galatians 3 and 4 states you become the KING of KINGS, LORD of LORDS… You will rule your life, and recreate your world with love, excitement and truth instead of being ruled by lies and death!

All you have to do is believe it, speak it, express it, manifest it, and remember the greatest of all lessons there is to learn…

WHAT YOU DO TO OTHERS YOU DO TO YOURSELF!

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. (Matthew 25:40 KJV)

That includes your thoughts about them. Remember… Judge incorrectly and you will be judged accordingly… But RIGHTEOUSNESS is followed by peace, joy and power in the truth …

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

The last great truth you MUST realize for any of this to become your reality is YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE STEPS TO ACCOMPLISH what you desire.

28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? 29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, 30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. (Luke 14:28-30)

The desires of your heart are there because they CAN, and ARE MEANT to become your reality! But you NEED to take the steps to do so… YOU CAN LIVE YOUR LIFE if you LOSE the LIES OF THE EGO! You can LIVE YOUR LIFE AND ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF IT when you DENY YOUR EGO and embrace the reality that “YE ARE GODS” and that to you, IF YOU BELIEVE, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

Jesus never tried to get anyone to worship him, he instead told them to TAKE UP THEIR CROSS, DO AS HE DID, THINK AS HE DID, BE AS HE IS, because YOU ARE AS HE IS IN THIS WORLD! And it is time for you to SO LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE and LOVE!

…God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because AS GOD IS, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD. (1 John 4:16-18)

That’s right, we are AS HE IS… This is what Jesus meant when he prayed, “That they may be one as we are one,” there is no division in One… And again when Jesus said to his disciples, “If you have seen me, you have seen the father,” and even though we have been taught to think such a notion is blasphemous… Jesus made it clear…

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

We are IN the Form of God, and God has given ALL THINGS into our hands to do as we wish. But to produce good fruit we MUST take our thoughts captive, nourish the right thoughts, believe the truth of who we are and reject the lies of who we are not, BELIEVE, CONFESS, TAKE STEPS, MANIFEST!

We are the HEIRS of everything, it is our birthright to LIVE A MORE ABUNDANT LIFE… But our ignorance has kept us living a life of death instead… We act more like slaves and servants than the RULERS and LORDS that we are… But make no mistake about it, WE ARE LORD OF EVERYTHING!

4 Now I say, That the heir (us), as long as he is a child (immature), differeth nothing from a servant, even though THE HEIR (US) IS LORD OF ALL;(Galatians 4:1-3)

It’s time to LIVE YOUR LIFE! Its time to create your life! Today is the day of salvation… BELIEVE IT, RECEIVE IT, EXPRESS IT, PUT IN THE WORK and you will MANIFEST IT!

Born Of Water And Spirit

born-again

Born Of Water And Spirit

When Nicodemus came to Jesus at NIGHT he simply could not grasp what it was Jesus was saying. Although, what Jesus was trying to convey about “being born again” was quite simple. And for those who have “eyes to see” quite beautiful. Here is the passage below to bring you up to speed about what it is I am going to reveal today.

John 3
1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Now, I have written about this before. And yet, I feel as though a short entry may add some much-needed light to this topic. Because most people today really have no idea what “being born again” means. Most believe it is what happens after you say the magic words “I accept Jesus Christ to be my lord and Savior” … oh, if it were that simple. Sadly, it takes a bit more than the recitation of these simply words to be “born again”. And so, I will once again try to explain this to you.

The scriptures, as you may or may not know, are very symbolic. They are filled with allegory. Jesus, himself, was said to only speak in parable to those without understanding. And so, for ten years I have been sharing the keys to unlocking the rich treasure found within this great book. I pray these words I am sharing will be inspired and that they will help you go farther in your walk. I pray these words will be LIFE to you.

Let me break the above verses down.

A man named Nicodemus, which ironically translates into “conqueror”, there is a REASON for that. A Name MEANS “A NATURE”. A CONQUEROR is one that overcomes another by force. And we know the “Kingdom” (right thinking, peace, joy) cannot be TAKEN by FORCE.

Matthew 11:12
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

He was A RULER of the JEWS. (We also know that the greatest is not one who rules but who serves)

Here we have the picture of a RELIGIOUS LEADER who came to JESUS AT NIGHT.

The same came to Jesus by NIGHT, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

This is symbolic of not only being afraid of what others thought, but also symbolic of coming to learn something in total ignorance.

People STUMBLE in the Dark. They cannot completely SEE/comprehend the depth and breadth of their “surroundings” in darkness/ignorance.

Night is obviously symbolic of IGNORANCE/DARKNESS.

And so, it was a dead giveaway that Nicodemus would not be able to grasp the LIGHT of what Jesus shared because he came to Jesus by NIGHT. Which is why he immediately responded by saying, ” Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

He knew that Nicodemus was not going to learn a thing this night (while ignorant). He knew that UNLESS the old religious/carnal/egotistical Nicodemus identity died allowing the child of God within to take over, the truth had no place in him.

This is what it means to be Born Again you see. To DIE of who you thought you were and to be BORN from within in the TRUTH of who you TRULY ARE.

Those of the “night” don’t understand this.

Jesus however did… He was/is NOT A CHILD OF THE NIGHT… and nor are we.

Therefore let us not SLEEP (REMAIN IGNORANT) as they do.

1 Thessalonians 5:5
Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

Nicodemus tells Jesus, “we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.”

Jesus responds… “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Let’s visit that for a moment.

If Nicodemus REALLY knew Jesus was a teacher come from God, he would not have been afraid to visit during the day. He didn’t know and Jesus understood that. I find myself speaking to pastors and bishops much the same way. I meet them where they are at. When they tell me they cannot be offended… I understand that they can, and will be offended, because they, like Nicodemus aren’t ready for the truth that will set them free.

You see, even if Nicodemus really thought Jesus had the answers it would not matter. There was NO WAY Nicodemus could understand what Jesus was about to share UNLESS HE HIMSELF had been quickened to it. Jesus understood this, as I do, and as many of you reading this right now understand.

A person cannot except the TRUTH of who they are, until they are BORN AGAIN.

Now many today focus on the outward man and the works of the flesh. It is all about this physical world. A coming Savior, A literal kingdom, A real heaven and scary terrible infinite place called hell. Nicodemus was no different.

Those that are BORN OF THE FLESH are FLESH. This is why Nicodemus said… “How can a person be born again? Can they enter their Mother’s Womb a second time?” — You see, Nicodemus, like many today, is focused on the temporal (the physical, the sensual) and NOT THE ETERNAL. And those that focus on such and put their faith in such, CANNOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD(Right thinking, Peace, Joy, Power).

1 Corinthians 15:50
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

And so when Nicodemus replied, “How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?”

Jesus’ answer was simple… “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”

Before I explain this last part, I want to bring your attention to what is on the line here. “The KINGDOM OF GOD”. This is what it is all about people. ENTERING INTO THIS KINGDOM. Now many are waiting for it to return, and many others believe you only get there after death, but if truth be told the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN is not some far away place… (that should be obvious if you are subscribed to this site)

Luke 17
20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

The Kingdom of GOD is WITHIN YOU. LITERALLY. It is WITHIN the IDEA OF WHO YOU ARE. It is RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE AND JOY.

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

The KINGDOM (which literally translates into “REIGN or RULE”) of God… the RULE OF GOD (LOVE) is RIGHT THINKING, PEACE, AND JOY in the HOLY GHOST (spirit of life that cannot be seen but can be felt, much like the wind)

I would also like to point out that the MEAT AND DRINK that the Kingdom/Rule of God is NOT is… FLESH AND BLOOD.

John 6:55
For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

It is ALL ABOUT entering the KINGDOM (RULE) OF GOD. Which is another way of saying, ENTERING INTO GOD’S REST. No longer kicking against the pricks of life that are meant to get us back on the RIGHT/TRUE path. No longer operating in a world of illusion but aligning ourselves with our TRUE IDENTITY, that of God’s only begotten child. FLESH AND BLOOD can never inherit this. A LIE can never become the TRUTH. Temporary can never become INFINITE. Who we have believed ourselves to be can never enter into the REALITY OF WHO WE REALLY ARE IN CHRIST (power and wisdom of God-1 Cor 1:24).

Jesus understood this, Nicodemus did not. Like most today, Nicodemus believed it is all about the Flesh. Nicodemus did not know that THE DEAD (IGNORANT) cannot also be the LIVING. For to be carnally minded IS DEATH. And it is impossible for the DEAD (IGNORANT) to know GOD (the truth, love, spirit, creator of all that is and is not yet)

But brothers and sisters, WE ARE NOT NICODEMUS. We are not like those who draw back into perdition.

Hebrews 10:39
But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

We are moving forward unto salvation. WHICH IS A NOW EVENT! And we are saved from the LIES we have believed. This is why we are told THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE. And that is why I am sharing this today.

Because as you know now… the FLESH (FALSE IDENTITY) profits nothing. THE WORDS I SPEAK HOWEVER… THEY ARE LIFE 🙂 It is the SPIRIT that quickens (makes alive again)

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.

Now, this one verse is a KEY STONE. For it will make everything Jesus shared to Nicodemus CLEAR.

Nicodemus was focus on the LITERAL. (flesh and blood)

Jesus was focused on the SPIRITUAL.

The TWO are like oil and water — they don’t mix.

Romans 8:5
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.

This is why Jesus said…. “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” he knew, as I know, that people like Nicodemus simply aren’t READY to hear the truth. And if they CANNOT HEAR the TRUTH they cannot be BORN OF THE TRUTH. And if they cannot be BORN OF THE TRUTH they can never ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD… Because GOD IS TRUTH!

So Marvel not… Don’t be shocked or surprised… that Jesus said, You MUST be Born again to enter the Kingdom of God… the wind blows where it wants, you hear the sounds of it but you DON’T know where it came from or where it is going… the same is true for everyone who is born of the SPIRIT…. You hear the sound they make, but you don’t know where they came from, or where they are going!

Did you catch that everyone…

This is why Jesus meant when speaking to Nicodemus… Just as a person cannot understand the origins and destinations of the wind, UNTIL they are BORN AGAIN they CANNOT UNDERSTAND YOU!

This is why it is so important not to try to convert people… You will only end up getting people upset. You must share the light to those who can SEE the light, and to those who cannot… ALL THINGS ARE DONE IN PARABLE.

BECAUSE FLESH CANNOT GIVE BIRTH TO SPIRIT… Your self effort will NEVER change someone. But your LOVE WILL.

And so now the parable is revealed…

When Jesus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” He was speaking of HIS WORDS!

The WATER we must be BORN OF… is the TEACHING OF TRUTH. The greatest of all prayers, “Lord, teach me the truth no matter what the cost,” will afford you that LIVING WATER (WISDOM) within. And the best way to learn is by EXPERIENCE (the things we suffer)

wholedesigner-livingwater

And these WATERS, which become life, which are also know as the WASHING of the WORD (TRUTH)… Can be a lifetime of adversity in the making.

Because through much tribulation we enter the KINGDOM OF GOD. Marvel not, that is say this 😉

To be BORN OF WATER is to be broken and set free from the death of lies. And we are stubborn, which is why we are baptized in these waters throughout our lives… The WATERS of affliction become LIFE to us, you see.

Isaiah 30:20
And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the WATER of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers:

Our hard times are there for a reason. And the VOICE OF GOD (TRUTH) IS ALWAYS UPON THE WATERS OF OUR HARD TIMES… so listen and you will learn next time you enter into adversity.

Psalm 29:3
The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the Lord is upon many waters.

Revelation 14:2
And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters

Marvel not, that I say you MUST BE BORN OF WATER as well as SPIRIT… Without the suffering of the oyster there would be no pearl.

And THIS is why we are told to REJOICE when hard times come.

James 1
2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

1 Peter 4
12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

The word TORMENT that we read of many times in scripture, actually means TO TEST and TO TRY. It is not about punishment people. Our hardships and our trials are there to DIRECT US BACK.

There is MUCH TO LEARN when we “BURN” with the FIRE of suffering. Our anger, shame, fear, jealousy, all of which are lies cause us to suffer. And suffer we will so long as we EXIST in a plain of illusion. And yet, our suffering is also our salvation. For it drives us to freedom when we recognize it.

The disciples understood this…

1 Corinthians 5:5
To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

What DESTROYS the FLESH gives BIRTH to the SPIRIT OF TRUTH.

Jesus said, MY WORDS ARE SPIRIT AND THEY ARE TRUTH… And ONLY SPIRIT gives birth to SPIRIT.

This means, as a flesh body can reproduce other flesh bodies… so can a SIMPLE SPOKEN WORD OF TRUTH REPRODUCE THE TRUTH IN OTHERS!

Our hard times (water) and the spoken truth (spirit) bring us all to the promise land.

Salvation has never been about simply regurgitating some magic words and doing what religious men or women tell you to do. Salvation is understanding that EVERYTHING IS WORKING TOGETHER FOR OUR GOOD and that who we have believed ourselves to be is the ENEMY of who we truly are. And a life time of brainwashing does not easily fade away.

As the apostle Paul woke up to the understanding that all of his works were foolish, and that it is a foolish thing to continually kick against the pricks of life (Acts 9:5), so too will you wake up and realize that YOUR HARD TIMES are not a CURSE they are the very thing helping to give you BIRTH!

I pray all of you understand this. I hope you all seek more for you will find more. I long for the day when we all can say, I Have Entered Into That Rest! And I pray the waters of life and these words (spirit of life) help you all to be born once again.

WE ARE NOT LEGION ANYMORE

legion

WE ARE NOT LEGION ANYMORE


“If the storms of life seem too much to handle… if your day to day has become more like a fight for your life… if you are bored, and tired of being uninspired… then come with me to the “Other Side”.

This essay will be a revelation to you. Much more than simply revealing who, and what the demoniac “Legion” is in scripture. This paper that I am writing this morning for all of you is a key of sorts. A KEY that will open the doors of your understanding.

Matthew 16:19
And I will give unto thee the KEYS of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

The “Other Side”, you will find is simply a way of overcoming your present trials. It is to get to the OTHER SIDE of your life. It is to CROSS over from death (which is ignorance) to life (which is wisdom).

There is a great saying that you may or may not have heard of. It basically puts forward the idea that when you are going through a difficult time, or trials in your life, that “you will eventually get to the other side of it”. As if your troubles are a large dangerous mote filled many deadly, and terrifying things, that you simply have to CROSS over to enter the Kingdom on the “other side”.

And this essay will help get you from here to there.

Because today, sadly, that is exactly how life seems to be for “MANY”. One gigantic mountain, or valley, or sea of trouble that you are simply dying to get to the “other side” of.

Does is not at times seem like we only go from one trial to another?

Like our sole purpose for existence is to simply duck and cover and dodge and weave everything that life throws our way.

At times… doesn’t it seem like this is just simply the way it is, and the way it will always be?

Do you ever beat yourself up for not being able to break the chains that this world shackles you with fast enough?

Well, if this is so, know that you are not alone. Because there are MANY like this today.

Never the less, together, I promise you, we are going to get to the “Other Side” of it.

Now, there is a reason I bold/highlighted the word “MANY” above. As we dig into Mark Chapter 4 and 5 we are going to find this word “MANY” to be one of those keys I was bragging about earlier.

So let’s begin…

Mark 4:33 And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear it.
34 But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.

I have found in my life that I cannot simply go over to people and flat out tell them what is wrong with them. Many times when I counsel people I know they are not ready to face their real problem, much less take responsibility so they can overcome it. And so to these people, I talk in mysteries. Instead of telling them that they are envious and insecure and filled with fear I share a story about myself that relays the dangers of living a life this way. I talk in parables if you will. Much like Jesus. In fact, I believe I got that trick from Jesus.

For example, if someone is an exaggerator instead of flat out telling them this, I might recite “the boy who cried wolf”. Get my point.

Now in verse 33 it is clear Jesus constantly spoke in parable, the question is why?

Well, the answer is simple. They weren’t ready to hear the truth. Just like those people that I counsel at times. And so “all things are explained in parable.”

However, we do find something interesting here… to the disciples… to those that were READY to hear what Jesus had to say… those parables made sense. The spirit of the story gave them life and because of this he no longer needed to MASK his WORDS. This my friends is the day we are entering into now.

When I began sharing my essays years ago, few people were ready for what it was I had to share.

However, today I find things I wrote six or seven years ago are now beginning to become accepted by “many.”

This is why I too am saying to those “disciples of truth” who understand the spirit of what I am sharing, when HARD TIMES come let us pass over to the OTHER SIDE of it.

35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.

Notice, how Jesus said, “Let us pass over” when the EVENING was come.

At first glance, this may seem innocuous, but I assure you there is treasure in every hill and valley of scripture.

The EVENING, also known as Night or Darkness in scripture, is an allegory of IGNORANCE. You can’t see in the dark. Also, not the safest way to travel if this story is taken literally.

Let us look at this from a different angle as well.

What is the “other side” of Night?

That’s right the answer is DAY!

The “other side” of Darkness is Light.

And of course, the “Other Side” of trouble is peace.

And this my friends is what this essay is about. Getting to that “other side”

Now to DO THIS… you are going to have to change.

The definition of insanity many would say is doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome.

If you are unhappy, unfulfilled, if you feel stuck and misery keeps you up at night… It is time to change.

The world and those in the world, will lead you to believe that your problems are because of others, outside influence, and while on the surface that may seem to be true, I assure you your problems are your own.

And YOU can get to the Other Side of them.

However, to do so, you cant continue to live the way everyone else does. You can’t be selfish, greedy, condemning, or rude, you MUST die to that way of thinking first.

One must first depart from WHAT EVERYONE ELSE BELIEVES… Those who DON’T want to cross over will stand their ground. But you my friend must journey elsewhere… And if they want to keep you where they are, it is time for you to send them on their way.

You can’t get to the Other Side if you are still with those who don’t want to cross over themselves.

No I warn you, whenever you say, I WANT TO CHANGE MY LIFE many people will not want to go with you. This is why you symbolically must send the multitudes away, as Jesus and the disciples did before crossing over. Because straight and narrow, upright and honest, true and kind, compassionate and forgiving, is the gate… and few there be that find it

Matthew 7:13
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

It is true the ways of the world lead to destruction. Look at our world today. Look at your own life. Is it not filled with bitterness at times? Is it not filled with envy, fear, regret, and anger?

I tell you the truth, for me, at times it is… and that is why I LISTEN WHEN I HEAR THE CALL TO PASS OVER UNTO THE OTHER SIDE.

It doesn’t bother me that I think and act differently from the rest. It used to, but no longer.

It does bother me that a majority of those who claim to know God are some of the most selfish, arrogant, greedy, manipulative, condemning, judgmental people there are.

Straight is the gate and few there be that find it.

However, you are not like everyone else. You are here today reading these words. YOU MY FRIEND ARE A DISCIPLE OF TRUTH… like me. And like me, you too have SENT AWAY the MULTITUDE and carried the TRUTH (Jesus) in your heart to get to the Other side. And in doing so, you, like me, find many others following along, little as they may be.

36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.

I have written on the “Other Side” before, if you want use the search bar to get more eye opening info about this parable.

However, I will touch on a couple of symbols that will help before I continue.

I have to remind you that we must take our eyes off a literal man named Jesus for a second.

Look at Jesus the way he described himself to the “disciples”.

He said “I am the way, the Truth, and the Life.”

So, we must look at Jesus as the TRUTH within each of us.

In this particular story the SHIP or VESSEL carrying the TRUTH must then be seen as our soul, our identity.

So when you read about the WAVES beating against the SHIP and the great STORM of wind below… You understand, YOU are the ship that the TRUTH is traveling in… to get you to the OTHER SIDE.

37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.

YES, these are the storms of life that we, each of us, face. And it can be scary when it seems like all hell has broken loose. But when that happens, we REMEMBER just who and what is traveling with us.

38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?

We WAKE IT up… WE CALL UPON IT…WE SCREAM LORD HELP US… Especially if we believe WE WILL PERISH!

And in that moment, when all hope seems lost, the revelation REVIVES and the WIND (troubling thoughts) is rebuked.

39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

The other day, I was delivered some news. This news did not sit well with me, as I have never been a big fan of change, ironic as that may seem.

Ignorantly, I allowed a bit of fear to creep into my heart about this situation. And it wasn’t long before that fear turned into an emotional storm within me, a storm with waves of negative thoughts that somehow seemed to predict the worst of future outcomes.

And as I ignorantly followed after the enemies (carnal mind’s) many temptations I too found myself thinking, “doesn’t anyone care that this could ruin everything?”… It was then, the TRUTH woke up inside me… I even laughed, because I realized I WAS being FEARFUL and that I AT THAT MOMENT HAD FORGOTTEN TO HAVE FAITH.

40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

And just like Jesus who yelled at the storm, “PEACE BE STILL!” … I too literally, audibly, yelled “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” I told myself, OUT LOUD so I could hear it, because FAITH COMES BY HEARING, “PEACE, BE STILL!”

And IN THAT INSTANT… the storm was gone. No more crazy thoughts running wild in my head. No more negative ideas of what might be, or what I might have to do… “Peace be still!” I yelled… I shook it off… and there was CALM.

This works people… It does. The scriptures state…

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

If YOU resist the tormenting LIES in your mind… they will leave you!

Just remember my friends, IN THIS WORLD YOU WILL HAVE TROUBLE. We are IN the FLESH. We are an infinite projection in a temporal distortion. We are LIGHTS in vast darkness… so it is not always going to be easy. But if we continue to follow after the truth, it will be much more than simply worth it.

Romans 8:18
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Now here is where the story gets interesting.

5 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.

THIS LINE RIGHT HERE is a treasure hiding in plain sight.

By now we know the OTHER SIDE is the ANSWER to our PROBLEM. It is then of no coincidence that when the DISCIPLES OF TRUTH came over to the OTHER SIDE the NAME OF THE COUNTRY was GADARENES, which literally means “the Reward At The End”.

Isn’t that something? When you go to the “Other Side” of a problem you find a REWARD AT THE END. This is true for everything in life.

Now let me tell you what you find on the Other Side… You find many, many, people who are hurting and thinking the wrong way. Possessed by the many lies they hear and say. You find that most people, MANY people, are hurting. Their life is more like death. They are often bound by their many problems.

2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,

christexorcist

Let me explain what an “unclean spirit is” — it is not some spooky monster or Hollywood demon. An un-clean spirit is simply a thought that is not pure. And if it is not pure it is a lie.

Jesus said, “my words are spirit”. Words/Thoughts these are SPIRITS. And today people are possessed by MANY LIES which is why so MANY PEOPLE are crying out this same way.

5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.

The STONES are religious laws, condemnation, shame, and judgment.

Deuteronomy 27:8
And thou shalt write upon the stones all the words of this law very plainly.

How many of us cut ourselves with the stones of criticism ourselves? MANY people beat themselves up today thinking they aren’t good enough, etc

Ironically, Legion “The Many” want to be saved, this is why they dwell in tombs. Symbolic of religious ideas and traditions.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, (‭Matthew‬ ‭23‬:‭29‬ KJV)

The white washed tombs many dwell near and in are the religions of this world. Which is why they can’t comprehend the plain speak of Jesus or Me. This is why they need the parable. They are lost. The MANY see Jesus Far off.

6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,

Notice that those possessed by the lies of this world and religion SEE (perceive) Jesus FAR OFF…

Meaning, MANY Christian’s today believe Jesus is FAR, FAR AWAY and they are waiting for him to come soon.

Worse then this, they believe THEY, and this JESUS, they worship have nothing in common.

Even though Jesus would say, “As I am in this world So Are You” (we are all in the same lot)

And worse than that… is the MANY/Legion believe this very same Jesus only wants to punish. They see the “savior” as a judge who persecutes and tortures not one who heals.

7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.

8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

When you come to the OTHER SIDE of your faith and you look around the world you will see MANY people like Legion. For they are MANY. They are living a life of death (ignorance).

The good news is, when the MANY see you… they will WANT to change.

When you show them love instead of condemnation. When you remind them that THEY TOO can get to the other side and find that reward waiting there.

Now not all will want to leave. MANY may want to stay where they are comfortable. That is because lies when cast out of people can still find a home in the swine (unbelievers).

When you cross over the lies that were cast out of you, like eternal torture, a rapture and more, are still welcome elsewhere.

You may find these lies that once possessed us are welcome by the great herd of SWINE (UNBELIEVERS) in the land.

This is the meaning behind the story.

We are not to waste our pearls before swine. Because in the end, it is the only place lies are welcome and the truth is despised.

10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.
11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.
12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.
13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

However, when one SINNER (person who is ignorant) repents (becomes wise) people WILL talk about it. The SHEPHERDS of the SWINE especially.

When someone who is truly out of their mind, who is truly miserable and depressed, addicted, and stressed, finds REST… PEOPLE TAKE NOTICE.

They say to themselves, how is it possible that this person who was so messed up is FINALLY AT PEACE?

14 And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done.
15 And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.

Well, that is what happens when you get to the Other Side people.

It happened to me. If it hasn’t yet happened to you, be of good cheer because it will.

And trust me, the SHEPHERDS of the SWINE may not like that. Because there you sit, at peace, IN YOUR RIGHT MIND… and you didn’t eat a word of what they were selling. Because only THE TRUTH sets a person free. And that TRUTH is right there in the hinder parts of your vessel (mind/heart) waiting for you to WAKE HIM UP.

Just like I did, the moment the waves beat against my ship. Because of it, I find peace and joy and truth and I find I am finally in my right mind (righteousness). I am LEGION no more. And soon you will find, neither are you.

Finger of God Casts out Demons/Lies

Finger of God Casts out Demons/Lies

I wanted to take a moment to reach out to all of you today to wish you just the merriest, and the most wonderful of Christmases. Of course, I also understand many people of various faiths read Jacobs ladder, and so I wanted to also wish all of you the very best holiday.

I don’t distinguish one religions holiday over other. For they should all be joyous times. And they are all reminders of the place of peace, and praise, that we all can enter into on a regular basis.

That is the Kingdom of God after all. It is Righteousness, Peace, Joy, and Powerful love.

And this is why I wanted to take a moment to personally bless all of you and speak my heart to all of you for this Holiday Season.

I sure hope the words of this short video touch your heart, and the following short insights into the Finger Of God and the Kingdom set you free from all the lies you have believed!

Kingdom of God/Casting Out Devils – explained simply.

If you have known me for awhile you know the Kingdom of God and Heaven is not a literal place but a state of mind/being.

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

The Kingdom (reign or rule) of God is not a place of carnal pleasures, but righteousness (proper judgment/sound thought) peace, joy and power.

Now how does one find the Kingdom of God?

One must be enlightened to the truth, and set free from lies they have believed.

The TRUTH sets us free… From lies… Obviously.

Jesus said something interesting once…

But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. (Luke 11:20 KJV)

And what is the FINGER of God, that casts out devils/lies and reveals the Kingdom of God in your life?

The Commands/promises of God were written with God’s FINGER (instruction), Jesus healed the deaf by putting his FINGER in their ear so they could (hear the truth).

A Finger points you in the right direction. Even the carnal use the Finger to teach.

He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers; (Proverbs 6:13 KJV)

The FINGER of God points you to the TRUTH, it is instruction, teaching, etc.

How else would you cast out a lie, but by teaching the truth?

What wa

And so … IF YOU cast out demons (lies) with the “finger of God” (teaching of God/love) then the “Kingdom of God” (Right thinking, peace, joy, and powerful love) has come upon you. (Is revealed to you)

In other words, until the truth is taught (finger of God)… you are usually possessed by lies.

But if those lies/demons are cast out with the “finger of god”=teaching of truth then the “Kingdom” has come upon you.

Until that day people still play games like children who believe lies about literal places in the sky.

But if the TRUTH is taught to those possessed by lies (demon possessed) the LIES are cast out (no longer accepted as true) and the Kingdom of God (right thinking, peace, joy, and power) has come (been revealed)

And how does one know who has the Kingdom of God, or who has the truth?

If they teach you and it brings peace, proper judgment, and joy into your life … That’s how!

By their fruit they shall be known.

Proper Judgment, Peace, Joy, and powerful love = The Kingdom of God.

This is why it is revealed without literal observation.

And can only be found within the heart of mankind.

Please do subscribe and share any and all of these essays and videos. It’s free and always will be. And please don’t forget the new release of The Calling the Book Of Thomas James is do to be released in a couple of months, please do get excited. I expect miraculous things. I love you all, Jacob

THE TRUMPET SOUNDS – FEAR NO MORE!

THE TRUMPET SOUNDS – FEAR NO MORE!

This short powerful mini documentary will take your breath away! You have been lied to by this world your whole life, you have been fed a constant diet of fear, worry, shame, greed, and pride. Because of this cruel brainwashing you took upon yourself the sins/lies of the world and WHO YOU TRULY ARE IN ESSENCE DIED… but that is about to change!

You are more than you know! This short mini movie will open your eyes to a great enemy hiding in plain sight. “Roaming to and fro seeking whom it may devour”. This “enemy” disguises itself as “god” and most worship this liar as god. For your enemy is most certainly the god of this carnal ignorant world. Yet, this enemy is not your god anymore… because now the truth you have begun to see clear.

This enemy, your adversary, the devil is also called the carnal ego/id of mankind. This is the JUDAS that dines with you, sits at the table with you, and betrays you for THE LOVE OF MONEY AND POWER. This “enemy” is the root of your fear and it has stolen your life away with it.

The “god” of this world, the devil, the serpent, which is man’s carnal ego or the “ID”, is the very enemy people have been worshipping their whole lives unaware. Because of this few know how to truly live their life. Life has become more of a chore, it is about suffering and fear and worry and doubt instead of righteousness (right thinking), peace, joy and power…

HOWEVER, THAT IS ALL ABOUT TO CHANGE!

It’s time to wake up to the new day we are in and LIVE our life!

After watching this video you may just see “SATAN, FALL LIKE LIGHTENING FROM HEAVEN (your higher thinking)!”

The TRUTH sets you free from the lies you believe about yourself and others. When the DAYSTAR rises in your heart you will know which voice to listen to, which words to bring forth, which thoughts to manifest and which thoughts to cast away and you will FEAR NO MORE.

Please enjoy this short mini movie called “The Trumpet Sounds – Fear No More” and enjoy a poem I wrote on this topic called, “Two In One Bed” – the double minded man is unstable in all his ways. It’s time to be of ONE MIND, ONE HEART, ONE SPIRIT, ONE TRUTH, ONE LOVE, AND ONE LIFE TOGETHER! Please do share with others and subscribe to this blog if you haven’t already. Much love to you and yours, Jacob


“TWO IN ONE BED”
There are two voices in everyone’s head.
The quieter voice is always the better choice, because the louder offers only fear and dread.
The quieter voice is love and truth, the louder voice will lie to you and make you wish you were dead.
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
This is why you must find the quieter voice today.
The louder voice will shout and pout and will do everything to make you believe these thoughts are actually coming from you.
The Louder voice will demand action, demand revenge, and will always make you do what you should not do.
The quieter is your hope, salvation, and great reward, this you will find.
The louder will grind hope and peace to powder if you allow it each and every time.
This is why the still quiet voice you must find.
You can choose to win or lose, whether to fall or rise.
The loudest is the room is always wrong, while the one who thinks before he acts and speaks is wise.
So take your thoughts captive and see whether they be true or lies.
In the end, my friend, you will thank me, because the quiet voice is peace, power, purpose and perfection finally realized.

My Kingdom Is Not Of This World

not world
My Kingdom Is Not Of This World

This plans to be a very short and eye-opening essay on a simple scripture that seemed to open itself up to me within seconds of me hearing it. Tonight I had just come back from a business trip and yes it was on Easter. All morning I had been troubled because I really wanted to write something. There were so many taking to social media and making such passionate and bold statements about what they believe. I was hard to ignore all of the posts where people wrote, “He has risen” and so on and so on. I also hungered to share something, but I see the resurrection of Christ very differently. I have written extensively about this so I don’t want to weigh this paper down with more of what I have already shared.

However, I will state that there was a time when I would have also written something similar. Of course, there was a time I believed all sorts of things that I not KNOW were never true to begin with. Even so, these false beliefs were stepping-stones for me. With each step put before me I would take it. Soon I would find another step to take, and then another until I had finally matured and reached the pinnacle where I could finally understand what these things truly meant to begin with. I have written often about the allegory of scripture. How we are told in black and white that God opens his mouth in parable.

Psalm 78:2
I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:

We are told how the Glory of God (the existing one or one who exists) is to conceal a thing. Which means, the glory of the one who truly exists is revealed when that which has been hidden is uncovered….

Proverbs 25:2
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

The scriptures are very clear that the things of the “kingdom of God” are not easily understood… that they are in fact a mystery. A hidden truth. After all it is the Glory of God to conceal a thing and the honor of Kings to SEEK after what has been hidden.

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

You see the mystery of the Kingdom of God has been HIDDEN within us all. So these stories we read about, whether they be literal events or not are NOT what we need concern ourselves with. It is the SPIRIT of the story that gives life… not the literal which keeps us all in darkness.

2 Corinthians 3:6
Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

And the SPIRIT of the story is the truth that bubbles into wisdom after you realize what something you have read and misunderstood in the scriptures finally means. This revelation or revealing of the truth does indeed give us LIFE… And this TREE of LIFE is the WISDOM of the TRUTH, which finally sets us free.

Proverbs 3:18
(Wisdom) She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

So not everything that you believe or have been taught is necessarily true. Even if the whole world agreed that the Earth was flat their belief and agreement doesn’t make the statement true. I do understand that many people want to feel accepted, they want people to back up what they say or claim to know. No one wants to feel alone. But I will say that the path to truth, which is found by understanding the spirit of these stories can be a lonely one at first. The reason for this is we have all been conditioned from birth to embrace greed, lust, fear, hate, judgement, status, power, wealth, fame, and so on and so on… We are fed a constant diet of how we must behave.

“It’s a dog eat dog world”
“Only the strong survive”
“Nice guys finish last”

This is why we see so many suffering. This is why there is war and prejudice and hate and every ungodly thing. Now to rail against this, one must realize it is not an easy or celebrated road. Because once you begin to see the truth that sets you free from the egotistical fear that has ruled you for too long a sense of hope and peace comes over you. You begin to see the world through different eyes. You no longer want to repay anger with anger, you want to forgive, you have hope instead of fear, when you lose something you tell the world it is all part of a greater good. You become a light in a world of darkness and the darkness doesn’t like this light very much.

John 3:20
For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

Once the truth if revealed to you, you glow, you stand out, you influence others, and your new-found life (For this is the resurrected life that many should celebrate), your new-found life is more precious than anything in this world.

You begin to do great and wonderful things for others and people will hate you for it. They will judge you, put words in your mouth, lie about you and try their best to extinguish that light that is burning them so bright.

John 10:32
32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

And why did they want to stone him? Not because he did bad things, they admitted he did good works… they wanted him dead because he told them the truth of who he really was and they were not ready to accept who they really were in return. You see they were not children of the TRUTH, they were children of LIES. Children of this world… products of the lies in this world that formed us all…

John 8:44
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do

Man’s ignorant ego is an adversary indeed. The creator of all sorts of lies, because the EGO that you have convinced yourself is who you are is a lie to begin with (There is NO TRUTH in “him”)

The devil/ego abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Now this DEVIL (Ego of ours) can also come as an angel of light… We see this in almost every church service… Lies are passed off as godly truth. Yet, these lies perpetuate prejudice towards those who are different, judgement against those who don’t believe the way they are told to believe, fear in what could come, pride in the fact that you are somehow better than others… and so on and so on… Yet we know those who are of the LIGHT by how they love, and those who are yet in darkness by how they hate.

1 John 2:9
He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.

When your eyes are opened you begin to see that ALL THAT IS IN THE WORLD is dangerous. And you realize that you may be IN THE WORLD but you are no longer a product of the WORLD….

Which brings me to the point of this essay. Before Jesus was to be put to death, he said something which for hundreds of years people have misunderstood… Myself being one of them…

Jesus said…

John 18:36
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

Now we read this and believe that Jesus has said that HIS KINGDOM is in another dimension and if the nonsense the religious had done to Jesus had been done in HIS KINGDOM there would be hell to pay! Oh yeah.. we believed Jesus said, in my Kingdom if you dared do this to me, my servant would fight you and kill you dead!

But that doesn’t really line up with Jesus’ message now does it?

You know why? Because what you think he said and what he REALLY said are two different things. Let’s look at that scripture again…

John 18:36
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

Jesus was asked if he believed he was King of this world and he said… MY KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD… meaning, his kingdom doesn’t operate the say way the WORLD’S kingdom acts…

To truly understand this, you must first understand what the “world” is that Jesus is speaking and what the word “Kingdom” means…

The word KINGDOM literally translates into “RULE, AUTHORITY… not of a literal Kingdom but the power and rule and authority a person is under when ruled by a King”… The word KINGDOM translates into WHAT RULES YOU!

No the world… well according to scripture. All that is IN the world is the Lust of the Flesh, Eyes, and pride of Life.

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.

And who is the KING of this world… THE father of lies (your ego) himself.

The KINGDOM of THE WORLD Jesus said he was NOT A PART OF would send servants to fight and kill on a leaders behalf… BUT NOT THIS IS NOT WHAT RULES THE AWAKENED ONES HEART!

Revenge and murder and greed and power were NOT THINGS that motivated/ruled Jesus… BECAUSE he was ruled by something very different indeed… LOVE!

So Jesus never said that in his Kingdom people would fight and kill and make war to set him free… NOOOOO! Jesus was saying the opposite… Please read the passage again WITH DIFFERENT EYES.

John 18:36
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

Jesus answered… I am NOT ruled by the terrible things that motivate men trapped in darkness… I am NOT ruled by hate, greed, fear, or pride… which is why no one is coming to save me or fight for me… Because MY KINGDOM is NOT of this world… I am ruled by love, peace, forgiveness, mercy, compassion, patience and wisdom… So no, My Kingdom is NOT of this world… IF IT WAS then you would see people killing in my name, or on my behalf… Because that is the way those ruled by the lusts of the flesh, the lusts of the eyes, and the pride of life behave… My KINGDOM is not from such a place of darkness.

This KINGDOM is WITHIN YOU! The RULE of GOD is to be RULED BY LOVE AND TRUTH! Which is why the more you see love and truth in all things, the easier it is to know the truth and love that was hiding there to begin with.

We have been taught so many things the wrong way. It is time for us to seek the truth no matter what the cost. To never give up on a life that is truly worth living… Because whether you believe it or not YOUR KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD as well… You may just not know it yet.

Call Upon The Name

CALL UPON THE NAME

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Proverbs 24:9
The thought of foolishness is sin

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

IN THE GARDEN…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Think about this, who did Jesus call serpents?

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

Matthew 23
33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers

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

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

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

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

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

The answer is simple, CARNAL MANKIND did.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

John 10:1
10 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

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

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

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

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

Matthew 16:24
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

1 John 4:17
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

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

THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE!

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

THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE!

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

THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE!

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

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

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

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

YOUR BRAIN! Your thoughts!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The word LORD translates to “The EXISTING ONE”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now read this with new eyes.

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

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

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

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

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