IN THE NOW with JIM SWILLEY – Ep 1 & Ep 2

I am so very excited to share this with all of you. Recently, I was invited to be apart of the groundbreaking web-series “In The Now with Jim Swilley” and what came out of my appearance on about 12 of the 14 programs was nothing short of remarkable.

Now more than ever before the things myself and others share, which years ago was condemned, I now find being embraced as truth and expressed openly and freely. This year alone I have seen an explosion of growth. More people than ever before reaching out to me about the things that have been quickened within them.

This is incredibly exciting to me, as I know it must be for you. Because if you have found this site, and have gotten to know me personally, and what I share intimately, then you know the time is now indeed for us to be set free.

My sole purpose here is to not just to inspire you to dig deeper, to live for more, to love unconditionally, and to create as big as you dare to dream, but I am also here to be confirmation for many of you. Many of you, have felt so alone and didn’t know where to turn. Many of you have prayed to find others who saw what you saw, felt the way you felt, and who had known what you were coming to know yourself, and that is also why I am here. I am proof that you are not crazy, but that you are waking up to who YOU REALLY ARE WITHIN and what you are truly capable of.

Awakening, of course is a process like anything else. It starts in darkness but it ends with rest and so this website is here to help you with that. There are hundreds of essays, videos, poems, etc on various topics that will lead you into things you have desired to know. This is why I hope you subscribe, download the Jacob Israel APP, and share this free resource with the world.

With that all being said, the “In The Now with Jim Swilley” web series is a great place to start.

JACOB SPEAKS LIVE AT METRON!

METRON JACOB
JACOB SPEAKS LIVE AT METRON!

MY LIVE APPEARANCE on “METRON” is AVAILABLE NOW for FREE! However, that was not the miraculous part… How it came to be and what came out of it, was. You see, this was the very FIRST TIME I have even spoken publicly… But wait there is more… I also purposely prepared nothing ahead of time… I simply had faith that the heavens would be open and that the rains would come… And boy did they.

What happened after that microphone was placed in my hand is nothing short of a miracle, and I have been waiting five years for this moment. And I am so very happy to finally share it with all of you.

To go directly to the video, scroll down and watch on Youtube… I begin speaking around 38 minutes in. For more, information and the history of how this came to be… read on and then enjoy! Don’t forget to subscribe and share with the world. Love Jacob

—————————————————————————————————————–

Six months ago, (symbolically appropriate) as you know I began telling readers, friends, co-workers, and family, that this would be the year people began inviting me to share publicly what I have shared on-line for years.

I made this point publicly, documenting my belief such an EVENT was possible, without me ever having ask anyone to allow me to do so. I documented what would happen, as I have other things, as a great proof of sorts.

I explained this wonderfully in an essay called “Inspiration Rules” which I shared right before the New Year speaking of what would come in 2015.

“Jesus once said, if you don’t believe me… believe the works. Sort of like saying, if I tell you something is going to happen and then it happens maybe it’s time you start thinking outside of the prison of a box you are in.”

My life is an epistle if you will… to be read of all men. Because I know the things I have come to understand are life… These words are LIFE… this IS FREEDOM… you are MORE THAN YOU KNOW and can do ALL THINGS WITH FAITH.

And if you don’t believe me, if you don’t believe my words… BELIEVE THE WORKS… and by clicking this link you will indeed BELIEVE and enter into the realm of infinite possibility…

BECAUSE YOU ARE MORE THAN YOU KNOW!

Please enjoy, and please do share this with others… I begin speaking at 38:00 minutes, but do encourage you to watch it all!

Special thanks to Jim Swilley, the Metron Community, and all those who were moved by the great spirit of love within them, that they paved the way for such a miracle to be performed. 🙂

Much love Jacob Israel

Satan Revealed


“Satan Revealed”

(Quick note to you all, as always I write my essays very quickly and do not have the time to go back and edit or revise. So please forgive any grammar, wrong words, or spelling mistakes. I hope you can get to the heart of what I am saying without me having to write it perfectly. Enjoy Jacob)

This past weekend my wife encouraged me to write about a certain passage in scripture, where Jesus explains that a house divided against itself cannot stand. Now when I got to this passage I THOUGHT i knew what I was going to write about. But like everything in life, you really don’t KNOW something until you know it. I thought I understood the passage and didn’t think it had more to offer in terms of a hidden meaning, or a deeper understanding to what is really being said. But just as I sat down to write this I opened up to the passage I am about to share here, and WHAMO, a new understanding hit. And it blew my mind. There is nothing better than seeing a scripture verse you have read a thousand times come to life, and now the dead letters of that page are alive and you feel the same because of it.

Of course, the passage in scripture I am writing about is this…

Mark 3:24-26
24And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
25And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

Pretty cut and dry, pretty simple to understand, right? Well, that is what I thought too.

I was about to write a simple paper on the importance of unity in our relationships, in our homes, in our country, and more importantly within. But when I looked at that Chapter in Mark, I knew I had another paper to write. Not about the importance of unity in a home, we all know how important that is, but something of greater importance. And I will briefly touch on it before I get deeper into this paper. But what I plan on opening up, is the next verse we find.

Mark 3:26
26And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

Now let me first tell you who this Satan character is. It is not some spooky monster who is out to steal your soul away. It is not an all-powerful being that is causing all the suffering in the world. In fact, the only Satan there is, IN THIS WORLD is “Your Carnal Ego”.

Satan is who people have begun to believe themselves to be. It isn’t who you REALLY are, it is the nature you have adopted as your own. And this nature is adverse to your true spirit, which is God.

That’s right, many people say Satan is the adversary of God. And that is true, in fact the name Satan is literally translated as an “adversary”. Why the word Adversary doesn’t replace every instance of the word Satan is scripture is just another reason there is so much confusion in the world when it comes to spiritual things.

Now I have written a paper already on how and why Satan is simply man’s ego. But let me take a moment and show you why.

Galatians 5:17
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would

God is Spirit, and the adversary of the Spirit is the Flesh. And the Flesh is an allegory for our carnal mind. The Flesh results in DEATH (Ignorance, suffering), the Spirit brings us LIFE (wisdom, understanding, rest)

Romans 8:13
For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live

Flesh = Death and Death = operating out of the Carnal Mind (Ego ignorance)

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

It should be clear that the Flesh and Carnal Mind is the same thing. And so, it shouldn’t be a stretch for you to now see that Satan (which is your adversary) is actually “WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE” = IGNORANT EGO OF MANKIND.

When Peter told Jesus that he wouldn’t let him die for the cause of eternal life (to know God the Father, and he whom God sent)… What did Jesus call Peter?

Matthew 16:23
But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men

Jesus was is a Symbol of the TRUTH of God revealed within man. Turns and calls Peter SATAN! At that moment Peter was an adversary/satan to Jesus. But that is not what I want to point out. Many have taught that Satan hates God’s creation mankind. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. Read the last line in Matthew 16:23 — YOU CARE NOT FOR THE THINGS OF GOD, YOU ONLY CARE ABOUT THE THINGS OF MANKIND!

Who else cares for worldly things? THE EGO OF MAN that’s who! Now when you really grab hold of what and who Satan is, and understand that we, each of us, have this great enemy inside of us…

Micah 7:6
… a man’s enemies are the men of his own house

When you understand who YOUR ENEMY is, then it will be easier to Flee from its deceitful ways. In Peter we see that Satan was simply Peter’s ignorant soulish worldly thoughts. In Judas we saw the same. In fact every time Satan shows us, there is a child of God Satan show up with. Because each of us have believed a lie. We have believed we are OUR EGO, we have believed we should be ashamed, guilty, we should be greedy and try to get ahead, we should be selfish, we have believed we should suffer, and struggle, and worry, we have believed all sorts of nonsense. Because of our Ego/Satan we find ourselves in hiding like Adam, scared of God, thinking we are somehow separate from God, we have believed we are NAKED and should be ashamed… And who told us that again?

The Woman (Our intellect) – I know many say EVE is man’s soul. But Adam is the Soul, he was made a Living Soul The intellect of man is the mother of all creation. Our thoughts create. And when that deep sleep of ignorance was put on each of us, our intellect went out trying to understand things on its own and it ate from the wrong tree. Now our eyes have been opened to a new world, a dead world, where the knowledge of good and evil is all we know about God. Our intellect was tricked by SATAN (who we thought ourselves to be/who we thought we could be)… We were tricked by the idea that to BE WHO WE ALREADY WERE we needed to do something. And so we got trapped in this thinking.

This is what the temptation of Christ is all about. Turn Stones (which is the religious law) into bread (spiritual nourishment), Worship me/Satan/ Your Ego, declare your EGO to be God and you can have it all, throw yourself down from the heights of understanding, do whatever you want, live however you want, you’ll never dash a foot against a stone… We are tempted day in and day out, by our EGO. It is that voice in our head, that we believe ourselves to be.

Everytime we have an argument, our EGO feeds us more and more reasons to continue the fight. Everytime our back is against the wall our EGO tries to convince us that our life is not worth living. Every negative thought in our head, is from the EGO/Satan, and it is the very thing that is holding us back from a life of peace. The EGO (who we think ourselves to be) is the reason for every horrible thing, it is the reason…. And for those who say, Satan is outside of us, causing us to do terrible things. I would like to point out, that every wicked thing in man, comes from within man!

Matthew 7
20And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
21For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
22Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
23All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

Satan is not some monster outside of you. Satan is the Monster that you think is YOU! This is the corrupt ruler, the idolatrous king, the adulterous woman, and yes the Roaring Lion Scripture speaks of, these are all symbols of man’s carnal Ego.

1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

The roaring Lion analogy is used quiet often in scriptures. And you would be hard pressed to find examples where this “roaring Lion” wasn’t simply an allegory of how corrupt man becomes.

Proverbs 28:15
As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people

Proverbs 20:2
The fear of a king is as the roaring of a lion: whoso provoketh him to anger sinneth against his own soul

Psalm 22:13
They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion

The Lion roars to make it’s presense known. It is said a Lion’s roar can be heard up to five miles away. Lion’s are killing machines, and they love to attack the weakest members of their prey, they also LOVE TO SLEEP… These are all great symbols of the Ego.

Now let me tell you why this is important. You cannot defeat an enemy unless you know who that enemy is, can you? So to continue to believe there is a being that is separate from you that is causing you all your problems will get you nowhere fast. To think that you can simply change into a better version of yourself (ego) and have a better life will get you nowhere fast. The only way you will move forward into the promise of God is to let that enemy of truth go.

Now here is where it gets tricky. And this is what that scripture a “House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand” comes into play.

If who you believe yourself to be, is Satan, and you operate out of your ego for a majority of your life, you will never be free from your suffering, if you don’t stop.

Now Jacob, what on earth does that mean?

Well look at the last verse again in Mark…

Mark 3:26
26And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

In other words, YOUR EGO cannot cast our YOUR EGO. Who you ignorantly think yourself to be can never overcome who you ignorantly think yourself to be.

Now this is such an important piece of advice I had overlooked up until this point.

One of the things that has brought me a good deal of sadness in my life, is that I (as who I think myself to be) cannot simply get rid of the sadness in my life. And what has troubled me for weeks now is what I have seen so many people speaking about.

There was a time that few people would dare say that WE are ALL CHRIST! I have been writing about this for years, but still couldn’t understand why I still couldn’t overcome my troubles, my worries, my fears, my insecurities continued to torment me. You see, what many people are missing today, is what I too missed, MY EGO (WHO I THINK MYSELF TO BE/SATAN) can NEVER BE CHRIST.

Once again, man’s EGO has risen up and tricked the multitudes. Today more than ever we see so-called enlightened teachers and people stating that WE are Christ. At first there was great freedom in this discovery. But we have been tricked. This is why books like The Secret, and teachings on the Law of Attraction are so beloved among people today. Many are teaching that since we are Christ, we can create, we can attract what we want into our lives. BUT THIS WILL NEVER BE. Positive thinking alone will never free anyone from their troubles. For a moment you may think, this is great, “I” am in control oh what a great day we are living in. But then when trouble comes we still suffer, we still see our limitations, we still have fears and insecurities. The reason is, Your EGO is tricking you into believing that Your Ego/Satan is Christ. That’s right all these great teachings we hear about today have done nothing but transformed your ENEMY (EGO/SATAN/ADVERSARY) into CHRIST.

2 Corinthians 11:14
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light

SATAN cannot cast out SATAN! If your Ego could cast our your Ego, there would be no EGO. But this DOES NOT WORK!

Only the TRUTH can cast out the LIE in your life. You cannot operate in a LIE and rid yourself of the LIE that causes you suffering and pain. When you do that, you simply believe a NEW LIE. You will embrace that LIE as truth and it will only make it harder to know what the TRUTH is.

YOUR EGO (who you think yourself to be) is not Christ (the power and wisdom of God) it has never been Christ (the power and wisdom of God) it is only YOUR EGO (the power and wisdom of Man).

And what should we consider MAN to be? A LIAR!

Romans 3:4
God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar

MAN’S EGO is a LIAR, and the FATHER OF ALL LIES! And Man’s Ego no matter how you dress it up, no matter how many times you call it Christ, will never bring you to the Promise of God, which is REST!

When you operate out of your EGO, you are still working to accomplish something. You try to trick yourself by saying, “If I only believe differently things will be different”, “If I (my ego) understands I (my ego) is Christ all things will be possible”, “If I just think on good thoughts only good things will come my way”… as great as that sounds, I have been there and done that and I am still no better for doing so.

We cannot change by trying to change ourselves into a better version of who we think ourselves to be. We can only be changed when we see the deception for what and who it really is. We can only be free by laying down our egotistical lives to pick up a true life of rest, faith, and love.

Simple repetition of certain words will never make them true. No matter how many times you say, I am Christ that is who I am, will never yield the true of who you are. It is simply another trick the EGO is playing on you, transforming who you think you are, into a new version of who you think yourself to be. And that is why my friends no one knows the true Kingdom of God, which is Righteousness, Peace and Joy and power in the Holy Spirit.

This new movement we see, some call it the Kingdom movement, is nothing more than a new religion with a new update face. It is nothing more than a bunch of people, simply saying I am not “me”, I am Christ as Me. It is the same old thing, with a different set of rules and beliefs, but it is still no the truth.

When Joshua was about to lead Israel into the land of promise, there were many that did not want to cross over. They had already come so far in the wilderness, they didn’t want to cross the Jordan. Which ironically means “To descend”, Jordan that is. To get to the promise land you must cross over from the lower idea of who you think you are, to who you really are.

But when you do CROSS OVER from who you think you are, to who you really are, you enter CANAAN, the root word meaning of Canaan of course means “To be Humbled”.

Very few people want to give up their “kingdom”, they want to still be in control, so their Ego plays tricks on them so they can continue to rule. Sure they may have overcome many nonsense religious teachings like hell and other ridiculous ideologies. Sure they may have received great revelation here and there called manna (even though they truly didn’t understand what it was), sure they may have escaped many of their enemies and became a great nation in this wilderness… but as long as they refuse to lay down their EGO LIFE and are willing to cross over into a place of humility and true surrender, they are still slaves of their false identity.

I understand today many seem to be making great spiritual strides toward this perfection we all say we have within. However, just simply saying “I am perfect”,”There is no more Sin”,”I am Christ” doesn’t cut it. You will NEVER be free as long as you are still ruled by SATAN (who you think you are). You will still face adversity and fear, you will still have pain and wonder why. You can put on the bravest of faces and say a million times that you are God’s child, but YOUR EGO is not God’s Child and can never be. God’s Child is hidden beneath the Veil (evil) of who you think yourself to be.

So with that being said, how does one find freedom? How does one outsmart that Fox the EGO? Well it certainly isn’t by trying to cast out your EGO with a new and improved version of your Ego. It is by understanding the difference between the thoughts of God, and the thoughts of your Ego. And resisting these negative thoughts until they flee from you.

James 4:7
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you

Only by laying down YOUR CONTROL of things will you ever be free. Here is the reason why. When the Religious of the day saw Jesus casting out devils, they immediately thought that the WAY TO CAST OUT DEVILS is by using the POWER OF DEVILS… Which means, the religious think the only way False Beliefs (devils) can be cast out is by SELF EFFORT. But look at what Jesus said…

Mark 3
22And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.
23And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?
24And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
25And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
26And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.
27No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

The Ego of Man cannot be used to cast out the Ego of man. If that were possible, none of us would have the troubles we face… No, this is not how to find freedom. Jesus than goes onto to say, NO ONE can enter a strong man’s house and spoil his goods unless that STRONG MAN is bound!

We need to bind that strong man. We need to keep our EGO at bay. We need to resist the devil at every turn. We need to stop think that who we are is in control, and we need to go to the one that is really in control. THE TRUE SPIRIT OF YOU, GOD! Because our FATHER is greater than our INTELLECT.

1 John 4:4
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

So how do we know the difference between the thoughts of God, and the thoughts of our Ego and Intellect? How do we know the difference between the ways of the kingdom and the cares of this world? The answer is simple.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind

The SPIRIT OF FEAR, is the same as saying the THOUGHTS OF FEAR. That is what Spirit is, THOUGHT. Jesus said, my words are SPIRIT and TRUTH. Words are spoken THOUGHT. We need to take our thoughts captive, we need to discern between the Thought of God and the Thought of Satan (the adversarial nature of man/the Ego). When thoughts flood our minds about situations in our lives that bring fear to our hearts, we must pray as Jesus prayed.

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

We must bind that strong man, we must keep our ego from running wild and taking control of our emotions. We must understand that everything that is happening in our life is for our life. That “we” are not in control, God is, and if we don’t understand this than we will continue the cycle of suffering in our lives. We need to trust God, to take the thoughts of fear captive and cast them away. We need to ONLY allow the thoughts of peace take residence in our heart. No longer looking at others as enemies, no longer thinking we have a say in the things that happen in this world, no longer running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to put out every fire in our life. When we REST in God we see all that has been created in our lives and we finally say IT IS GOOD!

We can cross over into that land of promise, but we cannot do it by self effort or the vanity of new-found beliefs, we can only do it by becoming a house that is united with the only Truth there is, LOVE!

So everyone please stop trying to control everything in your life, stop looking at everything as Good or Evil and see that all things are working together for your good. Give up the fight, and you will be divided no more. Embrace the truth, that who you are, is nothing more than an idea, but who we really are is One God, in all, through all! When we see this, than our HOUSE WILL STAND TALL! UNITED ONCE AND FOR ALL!

“The Meaning of Life?”

THE MEANING OF LIFE

There is so much suffering and pain in the world. There is so much pain and suffering in our own lives. We hurt each, we think the worst of each other, and we wonder why the world is in the state that it is in. We have forgotten the truth of who we all are, we have become attached to our imperfect ego and this enemy is trying to keep us from the very peace, power, and hope we are all meant to have. The good news is, we all will eventually have this. unfortunately, the chisel of our suffering must chip away every lie we have believed until only the truth of who we are remains. Enjoy this video.
