A Wake Up Call Is Coming! It’s CHRIST!

Who are you? Who are you really? Are you more than just who you believe yourself to be? Is there more to you than what this world says?

What if I told you most people who find their way to read these words, that the Lord saw fit for me to write, are here for a reason.

Perhaps a feeling brought you to search for more. A feeling inside you that tells you, there is so much more to you than you’ve been told. And what if I told you that it is no coincidence you are here with so many others like yourself. As if the day we are in was made just for you, for this very moment. Scriptures call this the gathering together of the Saints. But don’t get ahead of yourself.

The reason I am extra excited about the fact that you are now reading these words is because God had given me a promise many years ago that I would see many wake from the sleep that this world put upon them.

I began this website years ago with the hopes that I could be used to help shake people from the lies they have believed, and help them, to not let the Day of the Lord overtake them as a thief in the night.

The scriptures state the Day of the Lord is a scary day. A day of darkness, great ignorance and more. Like today.

This why God’s people are told to blow the trumpet and sound the alarm. To tell everyone to get ready. Because they, like you maybe, are the GREAT STRONG PEOPLE of the Lord, who just simply need to wake up!

Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
Joel 2:1-2

Wake up Sleeper! Yes, that’s right I’m talking to you. Rise from the Dead, because that is the true word for ignorance in scripture. To be carnally minded is death. To be ignorant of true LIFE and TRUTH is death. This is why we pray while in the Valley of death’s shadow.

So WAKE UP Sleeper rise from your ignorance of final mortal death AND CHRIST will shine on you (let your LIGHT shine) But what does this below scripture really mean? And why does it state to be careful how you live, and how you treat others. Like then today’s days are evil.

This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Be very careful, then, how you live —not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
Ephesians 5:14-16

I make the most of every opportunity I can to inspire people like you to ask God for more. Every aspect of my life has been about sharing that most glorious revelation only known as Christ in You!

In my soon to be re-released novel, “The Calling- The Book of Thomas James” it is a theme that is explored thoroughly. The idea that we, as children of God, have been asleep at the wheel. We have been ignorant of who we we truly are, and what we are truly capable of.

Because the Lord God is ONE. Jesus’s prayer was that THEY (you and I) be ONE as Jesus and the FATHER were ONE… this, my friends, is my greatest desire as well. My hope that you will have the relationship with God that I have through Christ IN me.

It is the very purpose for my life. The reason why I was brought through what I was brought through, why I spent years meticulously writing and sharing, building up a treasure trove of articles, poetry, videos, songs and more because I had FAITH one day it would be needed.

I saw a day when hundreds wouldn’t come but millions upon millions. Which is my I’m re-releasing the second edition of my novel for such at time as this. Not to mention in 2008 when it was first published, I chose the date 2022 as the time, but more on that later.

So what is that Glorious Appearing? Just exactly how does Christ Come?

I want to make one thing clear before we go farther. You (who YOU think you are) can’t earn Christ, or the Kingdom of God. That being said, God finishes His Creation (You) in VICTORY!l

Did you catch that? God finishes his greatest creation IN YOU.

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
Philippians 1:6

In other words, understand that God is doing this. In you, in the world, it is all God. Working all things together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose. Which all of you are.

Now, I want to give you some comfort. I want you to know that this doesn’t mean you sit back and don’t have hardship or have to make hard choices, it just means YOU CANT FAIL. Because ultimately God is doing it all.

Christ died so that YOU, or the Idea of You, could live. If Christ was God only child and was all these ever was, when you came around where did Christ go?

The scripture points this out, saying we shouldn’t even focus on silly things like this.

I will say Religion HAS Tricked everyone about how Christ comes and delivers us. But it is clearly laid out in scripture, even though they try to hide it…. Christ Comes (Erchomai) In His Tangible Body (which we are), In His Saints, With his Saints, in the Clouds (witnesses), as Lightning and more…

Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) —— who is the Dead again?

But what saith it? (What should you be saying?)

The word is nigh thee, (the WORD IS NEAR YOU!) even in thy mouth, (The WORD IS IN YOUR MOUTH), and in thy heart: (THE WORDS IS IN YOU HEART) that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

What WORD are we talking about here? FAITH!!!!!! For now, only a few here will have eyes to see this next passage truly.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus(WORD of GOD), and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him (WORD OF GOD) from the dead (Who are the Dead?), thou shalt be saved.
Romans 10:6-9

So essentially we cannot Earn Christ or Salvation from the lies we believe and what we suffer from. It is a Gift. By GRACE we are saved through FAITH, this is not of our own carnal effort… it is a gift! Eph 2:8

Now, that all being said, THIS is why we should be so super excited regardless of how things look. We CANT Fail ultimately, we can only prolong our suffering until we are delivered or rejoice the great gift God has purposed within us all.

Listen, we are given a message that we should Trust.

Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.
2 Timothy 2:11-13

Let that sink in … we are DEAD (ignorant) and we DIED with Him, so we will Also LIVE with Him. We can’t faith. Because He (WORD) Cannot Disown HIMSELF!

I’m not a Pastor, I don’t have a Church, and my goal here is to encourage people to go to God for themselves. That is it! Hopefully inspire and entertain everyone along the way. Hoping only to reach more people for the Kingdom of God, because there is no greater thing I can see to strive for.

So I usually ask people to cast aside what everyone has perhaps ignorantly taught them, and called “true” because I have learned after my many years of study and experience, much of what bad religion has taught us is a lie, from the father of all lies.

Go to God yourself, ask for the Truth No Matter What The Cost and trust that God, who began a good work INSIDE YOU, will complete it in VICTORY.

The truth is, I wouldn’t know salvation if it was not for Yeshua/Jesus and his great sacrifice and so now as he laid down his life for me, I and you need to lay down our lives for Him.

Christ took upon himself the sins of the world, they were OUR SINS which Christ bore.

It’s time to live for more. It’s time for Israel to be free.

Christ In You, The Hope of Glory. This is mystery that has been hidden that is NOW being revealed to those in the Lords Day!

TODAY, I very much feel like one of the apostles, who once wrote…

I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness— the MYSTERY that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people. To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is CHRIST IN YOU, the hope of glory. – Colossians 1:25-27

That all being said, I hope this helps people who may question this mystery. I wish you all much love and really hope that you all go to God. Let God alone be your teacher, the day has come when you don’t need to go door to door saying “know the Lord”

Hebrews 8:11 – No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest.

Of course I am not the authority, I’m not like many other the leaders of religion who come in their own name.

Jesus came and led people to Our Father, who is in Heaven. Jesus came in Gods name, he revealed Gods words and he was Gods truth for us all. Because scripture teaches no one can truly know God, but the SON (Gods child) Reveals God to the world.

Jesus said in John 5:4 – I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.

So many come in their own name saying God told them this and that, however I certainly don’t want to come in my own name.

If you have ears to hear it, when Christ “comes” a person no longer comes on THEIR NAME they come in Christ’s name, because Christ died so YOU could live and now it’s your turn to lay down your life and your name in this world so the Kingdom of God can be known throughout the earth.

It’s not about ME or YOU, it’s about The Lords Christ and God’s Kingdom and the day is here for all of us to witness this.

Hope this encouraged you all, and I hope this Wake Up Call doesn’t overtake you like a thief in the night. Don’t let the days to come worry you, draw near to God and God will draw near to you.

Much love to you all, Jacob Israel

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.

A World Of Illusion

illusion

LOSE YOUR LIFE TO SAVE IT

Matthew 16:25
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

So what does it mean to save your life or to lose your life? Some have taught it means we must give up everything, home, clothes, life, fun, etc. etc. and live only for God. Others have said, we die to our ego and desires and seek only the things of God. And yes, even more have taught that we stop receiving and we live a life of giving.

Now all of these are all well and good, but what really do these scriptures mean? What is the great advice Jesus is giving us here? You see scripture is good for our instruction, and in it, is hidden the very KEY to living a fulfilled life and overcoming this world in Christ (the power and wisdom of God). For that is what CHRIST is…

1 Corinthians 1:24
But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, CHRIST the POWER of GOD, and the WISDOM of God.

And the scriptures tells us the only way to find TRUE LIFE is in CHRIST.

Colossians 3:3
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

Our LIFE is hid with CHRIST (the power and wisdom of God) IN GOD… So our life is IN GOD, and the power and wisdom that comes with knowing this… What it means to be dead would be the opposite of life, if life is in the power and wisdom of God, then death would be the opposite. Death would be ignorance. In fact, that is what death is… it is to be carnally minded.

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

To be focused on CARNAL things, temporal things, worldly things is IGNORANCE… Which equals spiritual death. Meaning when we are focused on things that don’t truly matter, instead of the TRUTH that does, we are not living our life, we are existing in darkness.

The world we live can almost be looked upon as an illusion. The world outside of us is TEMPORAL, SENSUAL, meaning it is not INFINITE, it will dissolve away. And the only way we know and experience this world is by our five senses. (sight, touch, taste, smell, hearing) There in lies the trap.

We focus so much of our attention on the cares of this world, which are the very THORNS that strangle the life within us. We worry so much about the cares of this world, the bills, the thrills, the lies, the ties, the ups, the downs, the smiles, the frowns, that we have been tricked into being it’s prisoner. These THORNS which were placed on JESUS’ head, are the same thorns thrust into ours. (Our Thinking)

Luke 8:14
And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.

There is not peace or hope in the sensual world. We are IN THE WORLD but we are NOT OF THE WORLD. Which is why this world will never bring us joy. Our joy must be found in LOVE and LIFE, in Christ (the power and wisdom of God)… but as long as we are IN THE WORD (which is the lusts of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life) we are meant to be LIGHTS OF IT!

Matthew 5:14
Ye are the light of the world

And we must find a way to let that light shine, we must find a way to LIFE OUR LIFE by finding the TRUTH that is HIDDEN WITHIN US…
Now, despite what many say we can find the TRUTH hidden away in many things, not just scripture. We don’t need the bible to know God, we don’t need the Torah to know God, or any other holy book. Abraham did not have a bible, nor did Isaac or Jacob, or many others for that matter. You see, God is within us all, and His HOLY SPIRIT is our teacher.

Let me briefly explain what the HOLY SPIRIT is… First of all, the word HOLY simply means “SET APART, SEPARATE”… The word SPIRIT literally translates into MIND… in fact Jesus said, his WORDS, which are spoken thoughts” are SPIRIT…
So the HOLY SPIRIT is a MINDSET that is SEPARATE from the world. The POWER and WISDOM of God, which is CHRIST, which is our LIFE is our guide, our savior, and our great reward.

And it is within us all… so it doesn’t matter if you have a bible or any holy book or not, what matters is the truth being revealed from within you… WHICH IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

The truth is taught/remembered regardless of where and when a person lives. In fact, God says, the time will come for us when we will need no other teacher than God Himself…

Jeremiah 31:34
And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

So is this world an illusion? Are we like Neo from the movie the MATRIX, slaves in a prison we cannot see? The answer is YES. The Result is death and the only way out is CHRIST. But here is the rub, you see humanity has been conditioned to put their faith on what their senses tell them is true. For most, SEEING IS BELIEVING… For me, however, Believing is UNDERSTANDING and seeing the world around me can also be looked at, as if a man be walking through a dream.

“Row, Row, Row, Your boat, Life is BUT A DREAM.”

A MAJORITY of scripture deals with SLEEP. Humanity spends 1/3 its life ASLEEP… Believe it or not, 1/3 of scripture deals with the SLEEP put on man.

When we sleep we are no longer CONSCIOUS of the temporal world. We drift off into nothingness (it seems) or we drift off and our mind creates new wonders, new worlds, our experiences in these dreams can be terrifying and wonderful, and in those moments we believe our experience to be real. yet the moment we wake from our SLEEP, we understand the NIGHTMARE OR DREAM was a FIGMENT of our IMAGINATION. It was not real. No loved ones were ever lost, no crimes were ever committed, no adultery, no sin, nothing, it was all MAKE BELIEVE.

But when we wake and re-enter this world, we call EARTH. We are snapped back into what we call REALITY. But the question should be asked… IS IT REAL?

THE LIFE WE LIVE HERE, regardless of what, and how, we live it. Is a mere shadow of eternity. It is whisp, here today and gone tomorrow. So what is it about OUR LIFE here that we should LOSE, so we can SAVE ourselves?

Many interpret dreams and their significance, but few pay attention to the SYMBOLS in the sensual world, the SYMBOLS and PARABLES humanity is living in. You want to find out what is going on spiritually, look at what is going on physically. For everything around you, where you livem, what you drive, how you eat, your relationships, how your children act, who you love, what you hate, to the name of the street you may be living on… THEY ARE ALL PIECES TO THE PUZZLE called THE MEANING OF LIFE!

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

We understand the things of God, also by understanding the things God has made. No matter where you turn, there is a lesson, God is teaching. Think of your life as a great adventure. You are lost in the Matrix of TEMPORAL THINGS. We know everything we see around us, will one day perish… But who we are, in ESSENCE does not and cannot end. The question we should ask, is, why then do we continue to put our faith in things that will fail us.

The great trick of the CARNAL MIND (Our ignorance/enemy/liar) is the belief that things of this world can save us. Jesus told us, to be in the world, but not of the world. We are commanded to OVERCOME THE WORLD.

And what is the WORLD? What are the CARES OF THIS WORLD? What is this WORLD we must OVERCOME as Christ overcame?

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.

The world is our SENSUAL CONNECTION to the ILLUSION created by the FALL.

Ephesians 5:14
Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

We need to WAKE UP from the DEATH of our SLEEP. (Our ignorance) the dream tells us GOD IS FAR, FAR, AWAY. The DREAM tells us, we are horrible, terrible, sinners, doomed for destruction. But CHRIST came to SAVE not to CONDEMN.

As the LIGHT OF THE MORNING wakes us up after the long sleep in the NIGHT. The LIGHT of CHRIST wakes us from the IGNORANCE we have existed in.

Genesis 28:16
And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.

When you wake up, when CHRIST (The power and wisdom of God) GIVES YOU LIGHT (THE TRUTH) you will know GOD is IN YOU. And you will no longer look outside of yourself for a SAVIOR, for you will know that CHRIST IN YOU is the HOPE and the GLORY.

So what does it mean to LOSE YOUR LIFE, to SAVE IT?

Does God want us to give up our homes, families, and lives pack our bags and become a missionary? Does he want us to turn our backs on our hopes and dreams of being a singer, actor, architect, chef, etc. etc… Does God want us to live a life that is not a life at all, OR… Does God want us to live a life that is full, filled with peace, and every one of our desires met, because it is God who placed those desires in our hearts to begin with?

There is more to us than we have believed. Who we THINK WE ARE, is NOT WHO WE ARE. Like NEO in the MATRIX, one day we will wake up and find out all of our labor, suffering, hardship, and pain, was in vain. We will LET GO OF THE REIGNS of our LIVES, FOR THE REIGN OF HEAVEN (God’s ways)

Which by the way, is the proper translation for KINGDOM. The KINGDOM (reign) of God, is not a literal castle, it is being bridled and led by the LORDS OF HOSTS.

In scientific terms, A HOST is simply a VESSEL used by ANOTHER. That is what we are in a nutshell, we are the HOST that GOD uses to fulfill His great purpose in OUR LIVES. But we have been conditioned that GOD IS SEPERATE FROM US, and that WE (our ignorant) ego is in control. We have been conditioned to seek salvation without, not within. It is this ANTICHRIST nature that sits in the TEMPLE of GOD (OUR MIND) and declares HIMSELF to be GOD. Mankind, in their SLEEP OF IGNORANCE (DEATH/CARNALITY) believes HE IS IN CONTROL of his LIFE. But he is A LIE, a creation of IGNORANCE.

You are not who you think you are, you are MORE.

Want to find out who you are? Seek first the Kingdom of God and EVERYTHING will be added unto you. And what is the Kingdom (Reign) of God that God commands us to seek? John tells us, The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

We are meant to be ruled by Righteousness, Peace and Joy in God’s Holy Spirit. God desires us to live the life that he has ordered for us to live. So how do we achieve Righteousness and joy?

By dying to who we THINK WE ARE, and SAVING who we REALLY ARE in CHRIST.

2 Thessalonians 2:8
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming (revealing)

Scripture states, Christ cannot COME (be revealed, manifested in the flesh) UNTIL the ANTICHRIST (son of perdition) = OUR CARNAL EGO is revealed for what it is.

In other words, people, who we think we are, is the ENEMY OF GOD. And once we learn, that the OLD MAN MUST DIE, the NEW MAN is renewed within, and the OLD MAN (EGO/CARNAL MAN/1ST ADAM) is destroyed with the BRIGHTNESS (TRUTH) of his coming (revelation)

To find this, is not easy. It is not even an easy thing to write or tell. But God has a plan. Like a winepress, we will be tested until pure.

Jesus taught, there WILL be tribulation in this world. He told us to endure until the end, he taught us that to know the Kingdom we MUST pick up our cross daily and follow him. So there will be hard times, there will be pain and suffering, but how we react to those trials will directly affect whether we inherit the kingdom on earth. We will learn that we REAP WHAT WE SOW, we will learn, there is NO OTHER WAY IN, but the DEATH TO SELF (ego) and the RESURRECTION of Christ.

In the book of Hebrews 12:11, Paul writes, no chastening for the present seems joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

You see suffering, and enduring, produces humility and peace. Sounds crazy, but the truth is THERE IS SUFFERING AND TRIBULATION in the world. Everyone has hard times. We cannot control the tough blows that come our way. However, Jesus in the scriptures above was giving us great wisdom. Wisdom that will SAVE us, Wisdom, that will produce that joy and righteousness, wisdom that will lead us to the Kingdom of God. Everything in our lives, is a symbol. Look at it, pray about it, seek God to see why this or that has come upon you. Nothing happens by chance, and nothing is meaningless in this life.

OUR THOUGHTS are the key to freedom. The FREEDOM is found when OUR THOUGHTS ARE GOD’S.

“I only say what the Father tells me to say”

This is why, scriptures tells us that we will be judged for every idle thought and word. We must allow GOD TO TAKE THE REIGNS… We must LOSE OUR LIFE (EGO/CARNAL/THINKING WE ARE IN CONTROL) and WAKE UP and realize, “God is GOD and there is NO ONE BESIDE GOD.”

God has long promised a day of rest that he prepared for man where he will cease from his own labors. Pay close attention to those last words… CEASE FROM OUR LABORS… This is the Sabbath day rest and on this day we are to rest from OUR WORKS. That’s it. We are to REST. We are to CEASE OUR LABOR.

When Christ says, he that will save his life will lose it, he is not telling us to give up living the life God gave us. It is merely giving up the thought that we are in control, IT IS GIVING UP THE ILLUSION that salvation and TRUTH is found outside of us, FOUND IN MANMADE DOCTRINE AND RELIGION.

We are told “do NOT put our trust in man”. But, when trouble comes we immediately begin to work out how WE can fix these situations. We work out every twist and turn, and usually we enter into a wicked thought and way, where we begin to manipulate and lie, and most of the time we get angry and take our frustrations out on others. We put our trust in MAN, we put our trust in OURSELVES not God.

When trouble comes, WE try to SAVE our lives, but in our own pathetic effort, we end worse than we were to begin with. We end up LOSING the life God wants us to live, one filled with Righteousness, Peace and Joy.

You see this passage, found in all the gospels is teaching us that God is in control.

When we put on the flesh of our older brother Esau (self effort, carnal thinking, works) to try to trick the Father into delivering us our blessing, we end up suffering greatly because of it. We in fact, Lose our life by trying to save it.

Now I want to point out what our LIFE is to begin with. This will add yet another layer hidden from view to the literal scholar as opposed to the spiritual seeker. Scripture teaches us clearly, what our LIFE is…

Colossians 3:4
When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Through self effort, we lose Christ, we lose the Truth and the Way into the Kingdom. Through self effort we put our faith in man and not God. This is why Jesus was so clear when speaking on this subject.

Paul understood and declared in Romans 14:7 “None lives to himself, and no man dies to himself.” You see, it is error to believe we are in control. We live unto the Lord and we die unto the Lord. We must give up the belief that this is “Our” life, and that we can rule it.

24Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.

To find the Kingdom we must give up TRYING to find the Kingdom to begin with. We must learn our lessons. We must willingly reap what we have sown. We must forgive those who hurt us, pray for those who use us, and love others as we love ourselves, do unto others as we would want done… This is a great truth and until we do these things we will never know that peace that passes understanding… Which means, we MUST first UNDERSTAND this lesson to find peace.

Truly, it shouldn’t matter if we lose out job, our relationships, if we get sick, if we are used and abused, if a storm takes our homes away, but it does matter to us and when tragedy comes, when hard times knock at our door, it hurts. But if we continue to put these Burdens on our own shoulders, and continue to try to “save our life” instead of understanding God is in control, and taking the yoke of Christ whose burden is light, we will only make things harder for ourselves.

Matthew 16:25
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

We need to lose our own efforts, we need to stop worrying about everything that happens, we need to give that up and let our suffering go. We need to LOSE OUR LIFE to save it. Jesus taught us we must lift up our cross and follow him.

We must do as Christ did, for he was our example. He didn’t blame others, he forgave them, he didn’t fight against his situations he gave into them by giving them over to God. He didn’t want to suffer and die, he prayed for the cup to pass, but Christ knew it was beyond his control. He knew to SAVE HIS LIFE was to ACCEPT that HIS LIFE WAS NOT HIS OWN. Which he so eloquently stated to his disciples, I can do NOTHING of myself. Without the word of God I can’t do anything, but with the Word of God I can do all things!

This is good advice that Jesus is giving us. It is given to us, so that we too can have heaven on earth.

In Romans 8:8, we are taught that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory that will be revealed in us.

You see, we must realize that our trials are there for us, not to hurt us, but to teach us to GIVE UP THE REIGNS. The more we kick against the “pricks” the more we will suffer.

No one literally needs to die to have life, but we must get rid of the thought that we are in control, we must stop going to that tree of good and evil, and saying if I do this I get good, and when bad things happen believing we are being punished.

Look, it ALL works together for the good of those that love the Lord. If you Love the Lord you UNDERSTAND that EVERYTHING, even the bad, is there for YOUR GOOD!

In closing, if we take Christ’s advice to heart and if we TRULY give up our LIVES (Our efforts, will, worry, doubt, fear, anger, hate, etc. etc.) and believe that God is in control, than we WILL HAVE A LIFE INDEED.

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.
