HALLOWEEN GOD MADE CLEAN

“HALLOWEEN GOD MADE CLEAN”

That is an interesting title, isn’t it? Well this is an interesting article. You know around September or October all those religious leaders, or those who want to be, come out of the woodwork and write articles, and prepare sermons about how evil Halloween is. You will also find these ignorant judges on Religious TV programs trying to convince all watching how evil it is to trick or treat.

As if dressing your daughter as a princess and walking her around to meet neighbors with a smile, and teaching your children about charity and gratitude somehow will land you in hell. Which, doesn’t exist the way you think by the way (see my article “hell revealed).

Religion has for many years used fear and shame as a means to control others. And there is no bigger bunch of nonsense, no greater ignorance, then the beliefs that are birthed out of fear and shame. Considering God doesn’t give us the spirit (Thoughts) of fear to begin with.

Matthew 23:15
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell(ignorant suffering) than yourselves

The Religious system is built on three things besides obvious ignorance and pride. I call them the three “C’s”, and that is egotistical Control, Coercion, and Conversion.

This essay, I hope will open your eyes to more than just giving you the liberty to celebrate Halloween and finding that by doing so, you in fact are celebrating God. I hope this paper opens your eyes to the snake of the Ego, and all its devilish lies, poisonous words, sick beliefs, and suffering that goes along with such.

MARK 16:
17And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

How many today take these words and believe them to be literally true?

Unfortunately, the answer is far too many. Some go so far to “prove their faith” that they hold poisonous snakes and actually drink small amounts of arsenic. Now as crazy and foolish as this sounds think about what hundreds, if not thousands are doing in the name of “their god” right now. Stoning thieves, killing unfaithful wives, going off to war, blowing themselves us, refusing a blood transfusion, refusing medicine, the list goes on and on.

The Ego of Man is a villain, and that ego gets off on power and the control of others. So when you read about some poor old man dying from being bit by rattler at some service, you shouldn’t think about how lost and brainwashed they are, but think about how lost and brainwashed we all are, or have been. Think about all the things we don’t do, or condemn ourselves for doing or not doing, because we have simply been brainwashed by the Egotistical Religious System. And in doing so, we have sinned (missed the mark).

We have bottled up our joy, and passions, we have limited ourselves, we have been taught to look down on others and not accept others, we have been sold terrible, terrible lies. Like this one, “You can’t celebrate Halloween”!

When I hear this, or read this, I want to scream… WAKE UP PEOPLE HALLOWEEN IS FUN, A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO BOND WITH YOUR CHILDREN, MEET YOUR NEIGHBORS, AND SHARE YOUR LIGHT!

If you believe you shouldn’t go out and trick or treat this Halloween, if your Church has put limitations on this and said you better not or else. I say it’s time for you to get yourself a costume and find yourself a different place to be spiritually fed.

You see, this is all vanity, all meaningless, all egotistical control that religious leaders get off on. They love telling people you can’t go door to door and have fun dressed as your favorite superhero. They love convincing their ignorant flock to instead come to their “Holy Ghost Night”. If you do it at their Church, it’s okay to wear costumes, and have candy, but it’s at your church… so that’s okay.

What a load of garbage the Religious system has sold us.

Matthew 23:15
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES!

Yes the Religious Egotistical Leader will strain at a nat. They will make the smallest things error in your lives, and then they will go on to swallow the camel of evils they live in their daily lives. The greatest of which is GREED! Hypocrites indeed, and we too can be guilty of such.

It is the reason, Paul had to rebuke Peter. Peter after understanding that he wasn’t committing some great crime for eating pork, pretended he was against it when his fellow Jews entered the room.

Galatians 2:
11 When Cephas/Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned. 12 For before certain men came from James, he used to eat with the Gentiles. But when they arrived, he began to draw back and separate himself from the Gentiles because he was afraid of those who belonged to the circumcision group. 13 The other Jews joined him in his hypocrisy, so that by their hypocrisy even Barnabas was led astray.

It is a great and terrible thing to know you have freedom to do certain things, and then feel that you have to hide your liberty from those who need to see and hear it the most. Now of course we don’t use this Liberty to cause others to stumble, like we don’t give a drink to an alcoholic and say, “God is okay with alcohol”, you get my point. But Peter wasn’t worried about causing his brothers to stumble, he was worried what they would think. And by doing this, he gave them the ability to look down on others who do eat pork, causing them to stumble. This is a great example of how we can use our Liberty to cause others to stumble, and that is by HIDING IT FROM THEM!

Now most people are no strangers to doing things and then telling others they shouldn’t, as Peter did. There are people, who in private, do all sorts of things and then condemn others strongly for the very thing they do. But Paul knew, as I know, that ALL THINGS are LAWFUL in LOVE.

1 Corinthians 6:12
All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any

A lot of people leave out the last part where Paul writes that he will NOT BE BROUGHT UNDER THE CONTROL OR POWER OF ANYTHING.

Meaning he may drink wine, but he won’t become an alcoholic, he may have a cigarette but he won’t be a smoker, he may have an ice cream sundae but he won’t let junk food rule him, he can celebrate Halloween but he won’t dress up everyday because that would just be weird.

Now does what Paul state here mean, ALL things are lawful? ALL THINGS? Meaning we can go out and rape and murder and steal and loot? GOD FORBID! Just a couple of verses earlier he states how people who do not love others, and put others feelings and needs above their own, can’t enter the kingdom (righteousness, peace, joy, and power in the Holy Spirit)

This scripture Paul has written does not give us license to go off and do what we want, when we want.

However, it does show us that there are many things that we have been conditioned to believe are so wrong, but truly as long as they don’t hurt another human being or ourselves they are perfectly approved by God. Like eating Pork for example, there are millions upon millions who don’t, and perhaps it is healthier, but the point is, you are not pleasing God by not eating meat, or by eating meat, you please God by loving others as yourself, and by having faith in God, that’s all. Because without Faith and Love it is impossible to please God, which means you, yourself, cannot know joy.

Romans 14:5,6
5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks

This above scripture sums all this, “Don’t celebrate Halloween”, stuff up nicely.

Now you will often hear that Halloween has its roots in evil demonic pagan history… Nonsence! The history of Halloween is far less spooky. It didn’t take on that nonsense stigmatism until the twentieth century. In fact there was a time that Halloween was adopted as a Christian Holiday to honor the dead. And the reason people wear masks has more to do with politics than it does monsters and ghouls… “Remember, remember the 5th of November.”

The man we can thank for people dressing up today is Guy Fawkes, you have seen his mask displayed all over the streets, it has become the mask of choice for “Occupy WallStreet”. Well on November the 5, in the early 1600’s they would celebrate his capture, and soon for political reasons and to have their identity protected, people would wear masks on this night of celebration and mocking the terrorist known as Guy Fawkes.

But as I mentioned earlier, it would be here in the states that Halloween got its spooky feel. Artists would begin to use spiders, witches, and ghosts to represent the holiday.

Halloween was NEVER a night to celebrate demons or devils (which by the way don’t literally exist, they are merely lies and false beliefs, but I will get into that a bit later). The History of Halloween is very interesting, and it has gone through many changes over the years, but people, it’s just a day, like any other. When I first wrote this article, I didn’t include Halloween’s history. But I received so many incorrect emails that I felt I should actually set the record straight.

There are some people who think some days and traditions and things are acceptable to God, and many believe Halloween isn’t. They use its historical roots, or should I say what they BELIEVE is Halloween’s historical roots to condemn the night. But the truth is Christmas and Easter were much more prevalent pagan holiday and the rituals we still practice today. But no Christians have a problem with that… The reason is, it’s their biggest money days. They have claimed these holidays as their own and they say they are good in God’s eyes, while saying Halloween is bad… the irony is God could care less.

It’s all vanity, in the grand scheme of things none of it matters. Whether you celebrate, or don’t. The sin is not in the celebration, it is the belief that you can’t when you can and probably should, because Halloween is fun! Truly whether we eat or don’t, esteem one day as better than another or not, none of it really matters, what matters is that we all live or die to God. Whatever we do, we do it unto God, whether we yolk ourselves with the chains of lies, or live free seeing life as the gift of God, we do it unto God.

NO ONE LIVES OR DIES TO THEMSELVES. Our lives are not our own, so to fill them with vain burdens, to keep people from joy, and to fill their hearts with shame, which many religious leaders are doing today by telling you all how evil Halloween is… well truly theirs is the greater sin.

To believe that something God has given us, that is approved of God is wrong and to call it evil, or uncommon is Sin (missing the point/mark/truth of who we are in Christ).

SIN is the foolish thought, and it is a big old lie to believe things like pork, wine, Halloween, working on Sunday, eating meat on Friday is wrong, or to condemn people with a different orientation, religion, race, etc, is right… You see that is the TRUE SIN, the true evil that is done under the sun.

Look, there are two rules God has given us to live by, LOVE GOD, LOVE OTHERS. And I can narrow that down to one rule, LOVE OTHERS.

Because God is all in all and by loving others, even those you perceive as enemies, is loving God.

You want to know how to fulfill the law of Christ (The Power and Wisdom of God), it is to encourage each other, to love each other, to simply lift each other up when they are burdened.

Galatians 6:2
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

So how do we do this? The way is to show them the truth. If they believe lies… then you must live a life of truth and they will see the Light you have to offer and it will enlighten their path. If you see someone hurting, broke, scared, angry… show them love, kindness, compassion and charity.

The question is what is the true Burden that ultimately leads us to the trap of prejudice, pride, greed, hate, fear, shame… Is it celebrating an innocent holiday that does no harm to others, or is it placing burdens and yolks, fear and shame with the lies of Religion.

This is what it means to be unequally yoked with unbelievers.

Religion will teach it means you should not have fellowship with anyone who is not like-minded. You shouldn’t celebrate this or that, eat this or that, do this or that. THOSE ARE YOLKS PEOPLE!

Now an unbeliever will believe the lie that they have to WORK and DEPRIVE themselves, and their families, of simple fun to somehow please God. The Unbeliever has been tricked into believing that they have to follow what their religious leaders say, and do what they tell them to do, and must hate anyone who is not like them. Which is always what happens.

This is a heavy Yolk that has been laid on so many. And I am writing this paper, to hopefully lighten that load for you all this year. Because this is the sacrifice God wants. He doesn’t want you to burn your incense, go to your churches, help with parking, childcare, or ushering people to their seats. God doesn’t want your money, or need you to convince people to go to your particular church. God doesn’t want you to get baptised, confirmed, speak jibberish tongues, fast, fall out, NONE OF IT! In Fact God doesn’t need you to save anyone. God wants you only to share the Good News, and when you share the good news, which is truth, hope and love, it break these yolks off the necks of those burdened by them.

Isaiah 58
6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

So you can see how it saddens me every year when I read ridiculous articles about how celebrating Halloween is somehow worshipping the Devil, when the exact opposite is true.

How so Jacob? You ask.

Well believing the Lies of the Egotistical Carnal Man (devil) is worshipping that Egotistical Carnal Man (devil).

The Devil is a Liar, Man is a liar, do I need to spell it out for you?

So when Man lies, and you believe you can’t do this, or do that, because the liar of a man told you so, then in fact by not excersing the liberty of celebrating Halloween if you want to, is in fact, a form of devil worship. Because you have taken something that is meaningless and vain, and labeled it and those who celebrate it as evil. You have judged in error and your penalty, is no milk chocolate for you.

You see when you follow the lies of man, when they say, YOU CAN’T DO THIS OR GOD WILL BE MAD, than you have left seeking the truth for yourself and began to worship the lies of Man instead. (Devil worship indeed). And in so doing you reject the Liberty that is in Christ.

And we all have fallen victim to that. Peter learned a great lesson, when that sheet unrolled to him without every beast and creeping things, and God said “Peter rise, kill and eat”… and what did Peter do? He did what many of us do. God could have said to Peter, “Peter, rise up, get a costume, and make your neighbors smile” and peter would have said. “No, Not So Lord, I have never celebrated that evil demonic holiday.” And for that God would have to set him straight. As I hope this essay sets you straight.

Acts 10
14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.
15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.

God tells Peter to rise, kill, and eat, and Peter says NOT SO LORD!!!!

This is an allegory for us all. What Peter was to rise from was his unbelief. What Peter was to Kill was the Lies he believed. What he was to eat was the truth of God from now on, and seeing that everything God has made is clean.

But Peter was so brainwashed, he would never celebrate Halloween, he was told it was evil, but God said rise, kill that false belief, and get some candy!

Now for those that say that Halloween is a “Demonic” holiday. I would like to show you what a demon is. Put aside Hollywood for a moment with all that pea soup, and spinning head nonsense. To be possessed by a demon is to be possessed by a LIE!

I think even those most religious believer will say the Devil (which by now, I hope we know is our carnal Ego) is THE FATHER OF ALL LIES. And demons are his messengers. Well what is the message of the Father of all lies?

THAT’S RIGHT YOU WIN THAT BOWEL OF CANDY, THEY WOULD BE LIES!

Deuteronomy 32:17
They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not

A devil is a false belief, not the Truth of God, a new god(belief) that mankind made up! A god the fathers of our faith did not fear.

A devil is something people sacrifices unto to. AND WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING BY GIVING UP THE FUN OF HALLOWEEN? You are sacrificing unto devils(false beliefs).

THESE ARE BELIEFS I now, know not as well.

Not the brightest thing to do. But we are not living in the brightest of times, there is more darkness in the land today than many are aware of. And those in that darkness (ignorance) hate the light (enlightenment of truth).

There is more to scripture than meets the literal eye. You see all scripture is given by inspiration, and it is not of private interpretation… In other words, God must reveal what it means. Jesus spoke in parable for good reason. So those without the “keys to the kingdom” would hear but not understand. The book was SEALED up and only the SLAIN LAMB (Those that have their EGO’S AND FALSE BELIEFS killed) can open the BOOKS for us…

Luke 10:3
Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves

Yes, that’s right… We are as ignorant sheep in this world, and the wolf of Religious lies and traditions is there waiting to tear into us and kill the very joy of life out of us.

DON’T LET IT HAPPEN! GET WISDOM!

Proverbs 4:7
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

WISDOM is the TREE OF LIFE! That we are meant to eat from!

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

As is a wholesome tongue (Those who speak out of wisdom). As is the FRUIT of the RIGHTEOUSNESS, since the fruit is birthed of the WISDOM OF GOD, which is CHRIST. Now by stating this, I want you to understand that when you know the TRUTH it sets you free, but when you have the wrong understanding it is the death (ignorance) of you. Being ignorant of what scripture means is the reason wars have been fought in the name of God, people have been tortured in the name of God, crosses have been burned in the name of God, and people are condemned on a regular basis in the name of God…. And that also goes for those that believe we can handle deadly snakes and drink literal poison and speak foreign languages, etc!

The Snakes are religious beliefs, and we can handle them without being hurt when we believe. The POISON are the lies that many speak to us about what we can and cannot do, and we can listen and drink it all up and as easily rid ourselves of it. The new language we will speak, is liberty and truth and hope. And with this truth we can heal those that are sick and lame because of the lies people have believed about God and so many other things. The least of which is celebrating Halloween, so if you want, you have liberty to go out and have some fun this October 31. It is not an evil under the sun, the belief that it is, IS THE EVIL and it is all VANITY!

August 23, 2011, at 12:14 eastern standard time, my son Ethan was born. Weighing 7 pounds 3 ounces, 20 inches long, blue eyes, black hair, perfect, perfect, beautiful, amazing, child. The SON rose to its highest peak today as it enter Virgo at 12:14, and shortly thereafter an earthquake shook our hospital, I knew it was a sign of good things to come. I did this video, the day before, just talked from my heart and I believe what is said will change people’s hearts. Enjoy, share, and subscribe it’s free. And hold on because we are all in delivery! much love Jacob

NO KING HERE


NO KING HERE

Matthew 23:11
But he that is greatest among (within) you shall be your servant.

There are two ways to look at that scripture. One is to see that the true purpose of life is to esteem others greater than yourself. The other is to understand the GREATEST IN YOU is YOUR SERVANT. But that is another paper for another time. Tonight I wanted to share something a bit more personal. I wanted to write something from my heart, to share what I have been going through spiritually, what I have been thinking about, and what has been troubling me lately.

The greatest thing lately is that I have found that I have no real deep insight to share with anyone, meaning I have no manna from heaven… except the only message I know needs to be spread today, and it’s so simple and wonderful, that I was so surprised that sharing it recently in my video sparked such outrage. So shaken by this, I found myself so confused, that the simplicity of the message was lost on people who seem to be focused only on things that are complex and unattainable.

2 Corinthians 11:3
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Our EGO deceives us through our intellect, our desire to be intellectual, smart, wise in our own eyes, and when we allow our EGO to corrupt the very simple message of CHRIST IN YOU/AS YOU, Mankind’s lust for wisdom, power, and pride corrupts it, making the EGO god, and killing the very truth of who you are, through a bunch of unnecessary complications mankind created to keep mankind’s EGO in control, and keep the TRUTH of who we are hidden. Which is why once that TRUTH, in its simplicity is shared, people go OFF!

1 Corinthians 1
17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. 18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Now this is for those who can hear it… WE ARE TO TAKE UP OUR CROSS. Christ’s is our Cross. It is when we CROSS from the ignorance and death of who we think we are, to the Life of knowing who we truly are. But that is another paper indeed.

I wanted to write this short paper on something that has truly been eating away at me. So much so, for a moment, it caused me to second guess about everything I do on this blog, youtube, and facebook.

What began as a simple desire to share with the world insights I believe I have been blessed with, in hopes that it would somehow better the lives of those reading, has become something I truly wasn’t prepared for. Hence the title of this essay, “No King Here”.

What I mean by this is, lately I been receiving a good deal of criticism and a great deal of praise, both of which I do not believe I deserve. Don’t get me wrong I love to provoke thought, and I love even more that something I write, or say, seems to do good in another’s life. Also, I don’t want to be misunderstood, I am not a fragile bird who gets all down in the dumps when people call me a “false prophet, deceiver, messenger of satan, possessed, evil, etc” to be honest I think those who do such have also put me on some kind of a platform; they do this by stating that I have been given some kind of power that “little old me” could possibly mislead people by such power. Now the idea that I can save someone spiritually or damn someone spiritually is not just funny, it is sad.

Sad because I only share what I share because I have the desire to do so. In addition I do so without expecting anything in return. I am not a pastor, I don’t lead a congregation, I’m not the head of anything, not even my family, my wife and I are partners at that 🙂 and we both understand that we can only be who we are. We love each other in good times and bad. That is why our marriage is blessed, we don’t put unrealistic expectations on the other, and don’t believe the other to be anything but who they are. Which is something that more people should do, not just in marriage, but in life, along the road to spiritual enlightenment. Don’t make anyone to be a King over you.

I often receive emails, like one today, where I am asked to give further proof of the things I write. Many of my readers, don’t really know if they should believe what is written, so they take my essays to their “spiritual leaders” for their okay… Even today, I was asked to give more proof, “scriptural” so that one reader could then provide more proof to their pastor, because their pastor says I haven’t backed up what is written with enough scriptural proof. Is it just me, or does someone see a problem with this. This person, has a) made their pastor to be the end all be all of their faith, and b) because of this has then come to me, to Prove myself more.

John 6:30
They said therefore unto him, What miracle will you show us, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work

Herod wanted the same thing. PROVE YOURSELF! I am all for giving every person an answer, but not when the answer has already been given and the person rejects it and says, “If this is the answer REALLLLLLY prove it to me.”

The point of this whole essay is I have no need. I am not trying to prove anyone wrong or prove myself right, I am simply sharing what I believe to be true. And now it is up to you to do what you will with it. This is your life, your walk, your amazing journey, I am simply a passerby that has your attention for but a moment. And so, I offered not other scriptures to prove what I wrote to be true, nor should I ever have to defend or prove myself to anyone, but God.

Which is why, the condemnation I received the other night really shook me to the core and I wanted this essay to be an explanation of sorts. You see, when I received the blow back openly and privately from sharing a simple video on the power of “Love”, it really sort of put the proverbial straw on the camel’s back and broke me.

Isaiah 5
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

I found myself having to do what I never have had to do before, to answer critics. I dare say, even defend my beliefs, which don’t need defence. However, I felt that if I didn’t, people who may be paying attention would think that I had no answers for them. You see that is what the problem is to begin with… I am not the person people should turn to to learn about the things of God, sure I love to share what I know, but I am no spiritual leader, and I will not wear that mantle regardless of how many tell me that is who I am…. You see, where many others would be happy to have others think they somehow know more, or have learned more, or are greater than others, I see that my life is not my own, not of my own making, and thus, I cannot take any credit for anything anyone has learned. If someone has learned something from my blog, or videos, they did not learn it from me, I simply was there to help them remember what they already knew (which is why they know it to be true)… A person cannot teach anyone about themselves, or God… Only God can do that, and only they can do that.

And as for those that can’t hear what I hear, or know what I know, that doesn’t threaten of bother me. Because I know a person can only believe what they can handle at that time. So for those that were looking for debate, it wouldn’t matter if I proved the point correct one hundred thousand times, they would never see it, because they are blinded to it. (for now)… If truth be told, no answer I can ever give someone who is “dead” set in their beliefs will ever change their stance, or view-point. But that doesn’t mean one day they won’t. It just means that when you enter into a new understanding, you will begin to see others in not their best light (because most you will find who attack you are in darkness)

2 Timothy 3
1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
———- 7Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Now if I may share what I believe Paul is warning Timothy about here, is not about the “last days of the literal world” – as this was advice he sent out long before you and I came on the scene. But I believe he was telling Timothy about how in the “Last Days of Our Ignorance” perilous times will come (be revealed). I believe the closer we get to seeing the very nature of God, which is love, peace, humility, compassion, acceptance, etc, and etc, that we will begin to see others in the world in a less than godly way. I believe he is saying, that the closer you get to the end of your carnal life, the more ugly the world and those around you will appear. The last line I quoted is by far my favorite, EVER LEARNING BUT NEVER ABLE TO COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH… This really does sum up so many today. So proud of all they are learning or have learned that they would scour to the world to find one speck in another’s beliefs while ignoring the void of love in their heart. Now scripture is clear, one day, ALL WILL COME TO THE UNITY OF THE FAITH… But what is the KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH that they are not coming to understand… Well it is the very thing I have been for weeks now trying to share here on my blog, facebook, and youtube, also it is the main “hidden” message of my book. The KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH is the KNOWLEDGE OF WHO YOU REALLY ARE. Look at this scripture.

Ephesians 4:12-14
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: — That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive

Look at that for a moment, the Knowledge of the TRUTH (Christ), also means to come to the knowledge of the SON (child) of God, and to come UNTO A PERFECT MAN, and UNTO THE MEASURE of the STATURE OF THE FULLNESS (Notice is does not say “part of”, or some, or separate from, but it says FULLNESS) — THE FULLNESS OF CHRIST (which is the power and wisdom of God, God’s anointed revealed in you (who people think you to be) in the literal world) — The knowledge of the truth is to get people to get to the FULLNESS OF CHRIST in their waking life. — MEANING, we become CHRIST, not as Christ, not a part of Christ, but the FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY.

Colossians 2:8-10
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him (CHRIST), which is the head of all principality and power

The very work I am laboring (only God knows why, for this is my greatest desire), the very thing I daily try to do is to get people to wake up to who they are. Not who they think they are, that is the ANTI-CHRIST… Who you think you are is the very enemy of who you really are, which is why you and I suffer and seem to be at war within ourselves. Which is why it is so important to get everyone to come to the Knowledge of who they are, so we will NO LONGER BE SPOILED by carnal philosophy, debate, deceit, traditions of men, or be tossed back and forth with every other wind of doctrine (teaching) there is.

And as Paul warned Timothy of the things he will experience in the “last days of his own ignorance”, I believe I too am experiencing as well. Like Paul, I am saddened to see so many people quick to condemn, attack, and tear down a simple message of love and peace. I understand they can only believe what they believe for the moment, I understand they are not my enemy (though they may see me as their enemy) but it is still hurtful to me that I have come to a place where I can no longer just keep this great understanding to myself. I have veiled my face for long enough, meaning I did my best for years to give people what I believed they could handle and was palatable for them, understanding not everyone is ready to hear that everything they put their faith in since childhood is in fact a clever deceitful lie designed to keep them from finding out the beauty of who they truly are. Which is the only thing that will set anyone free, THE TRUTH.

If you are waiting for salvation, you are not saved. If you are waiting for a savior to return you are helpless and in need of rescue. If you believe you are not worthy to be who you were created to be (the Image of God) what a sad lie you are living. It is like we have been trapped in a cage called “Ego” – and this non-existent creation we created has now become our task master. It now rules us, it keeps up scared, tells us we are no good, that we don’t measure up and can never measure up, it KEEPS US LIVING A LIFE THAT IS MORE LIKE DEATH…. the reason is WHO WE REALLY ARE is being held captive by this insecure, hateful, prideful, false identity which in a clever act of deceit has ensured its own existence by creating a religious belief that YOU CAN NEVER BE THE VERY THING YOU ARE!

This lie is so well and far spread that people kill, condemn, attack, tear down, and torment others, and they do this in the name of a god, this false identity cleverly created in its own image. Which is why people today, strap bombs to their chests and kill innocents, or we go off to war against other countries in the name of this god, and make legislation to keep people impoverished, sick, in debt, and far from liberty. This trickery began long before we were here, and if people don’t wake from it will continue long after we (in this form) are gone.

This lie dangles the carrot in front of us saying, if we only do this, or do that things will turn around for us. While also saying, we are imperfect, lost, dead in sin, hell bound, and that we can do nothing about it, that we must wait for some magic man in the sky to return, as opposed to coming to the revelation that the SAVIOR is within every one of us.

John 1:9
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

The SAVIOR is our LIFE, which is hid in Christ, which is hid in who we think we are. You will find that the scriptures are all the things people state them to be, but you have to SEE the SPIRIT of what these scriptures mean to get out of the only hell (your ignorant suffering) you are trapped in.

PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY! Both parts, for one speaks about how we are to perceive and treat others, for we are all one, and the next part speaks of who we really are and how we should understand ourselves to be.

Philippians 2:3,4
Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others

That’s right we need to stop thinking we are better than others for what we believe or how we live. That goes for EVERYONE, not one of us is better than the worst of us. And we MUST do unto others as we would want done unto ourselves, because in fact how we treat others is how we truly treat ourselves. Also, stop looking at ourselves as being the center of the universe and understand we are part of the whole, and the whole is the FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY. Either ignorant of this (dead in Adam) or Risen (enlightened in Christ).

Now look at the NEXT KEY INFORMATION!

Philippians 2:5,6
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.

I can’t spell it out any more plain than this. We are the exact same as Christ Jesus, and this is the KNOWLEDGE we must come to. We are all ONE IN THE SAME and as the SAME we are ONE. We are literally instructed to have the exact same mindset as Christ Jesus, meaning we must believe we too are the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON/DAUGHTER of GOD. That we can do nothing or ourselves. That our KINGDOM is not this world. That we are not of this world. And we MUST overcome who we think we are in this world.

Meaning people, the EGO has got to go.

Now I understand many people aren’t ready to hear that they will NEVER FIND SALVATION in confessing a literal name of a literal man from two thousand years ago, but I DO KNOW when they CONFESS the NAME OF CHRIST as THEIR OWN, when they PICK UP THEIR CROSS, AND DO AS HE/JESUS DID, that salvation is ours. And what will be will saved from? —- OUR IGNORANT EGO/ANTI-CHRIST – who is now sitting on the THRONE OF GOD (which is our mind, point to your temples people what is between them).

That’s right the ANTI-CHRIST sitting on the THRONE OF GOD, declaring himself to be GOD, is WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE… God’s throne is YOUR HEART/MIND. “KNOW YOU NOT THAT YOU ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD” — And right now, who do you believe is in control of your life? — Most would say “who they believe themselves to be is in control” instead of dying to themselves, and saying I AM in control. Not my will (ego) but thine (God) be done.

In any event, this is why I have been writing plainly to you all, speaking the way I have been speaking, and not really holding anything back. The reason is I know that a VEILED FACE (understanding) is not going to lead anyone into the promise land (freedom/peace/righteousness/purpose)… As we saw Moses who VEILED his face, didn’t do such a great job, but kept people in the wilderness until they died.

And when I began sharing, at first it felt so liberating to finally step out from the fear of what others might think. I mean, let’s be real, I have nothing gain from any of this, and it is only my hope that by my sharing it will help others to also seek God’s face (understanding) for themselves. Not go to me, or some pastor, or religious leader who seems to have some answers, but go within. Pray “teach me the truth no matter what the cost”, ask questions and you will get answers, and be steadfast in it. Don’t ever stop, as I never stop but continue each day to learn more, to see more, and to be free more. I know God is faithful to answer every one of these prayers.

Because I know that if you are praying for the Truth no matter the cost, that is evidence you are in the process of coming to know the truth. Only those who do not pray this, and believe they have it all figured out will not pray this, and that is evidence they will not receive the truth. SO SEEK AND FIND, KNOCK AND THAT DOOR WILL OPEN, the gate is your mind, and CHRIST is your LIFE WAITING for the moment to free you from every idol (I doll) (false dead image of a living being)

So back to the purpose of this essay. Last night I took down my facebook page, but thanks to come emails I received I realized perhaps I don’t need to hide from what has been coming my way lately, but I should embrace it. It’s funny I don’t mind the attacks, but when people state I am the voice of God, or I am this, or I am that, I get very uncomfortable. The reason is I am no different from anyone, in fact I am, as Paul says, less than the least of you. I don’t consider myself to be a perfect, whole being (although I know we are all). I don’t consider every trial such a great pleasure (though I know it is). And I don’t have all the answers (Yet I know we all already do).

You see part of the reason I do my videos in such a strange way is because I don’t want people to look to me as someone special, even though admittedly I love the comments I get when something I write or say has touched someone. But I barely know what I am going to speak about when I do a video, and like tonight when I sit down to write, I have an idea of what I may write about but then thoughts flood my head and I go elsewhere. You see, I know all I have, I did not earn, I simply came to believe it was meant to be. With faith all things are possible. I don’t consider myself as some guru, or prophet, or leader, that’s why I get troubled when people state “you are leading people astray”… As if any of us has the power to lead anyone anywhere. I can do nothing of myself (my ego)… Everytime I act of that insecure, prideful, mask, I get into trouble… even though I have come to believe that even that is carefully orchestrated to bring about a perfect end to my ignorance and yours. All things work together indeed.

So, I wanted to run last night. Hide from it all. I’ve done it before. But then where would that leave all of this desire I have to share with people. I make it clear that I am probably a bigger train wreck emotionally than all of those reading or watching, so why all of the attention, both negative and positive? The truth is I don’t know, but I believe there is a great part of me that wants to be used to change the world for the better, a part of me that desires above all else to help people come to see how truly beautiful they really are… BECAUSE I DESIRE TO SEE THAT ABOUT MYSELF.

You see, what we do to other we do to ourselves. What we sow we reap. But sometimes, I need to pause and question why am I letting some people’s comments bother me, both good and bad. And in that pause I find myself again. I find my head again (Christ). I find that I am where I am, and what others believe about me, or say about me, is their bag not mine.

Look, people wanted Jesus to be their KING – their spiritual LEADER… And Jesus would have none of it. Because he, like I, understood to do so would be the very death of that person’s spiritual growth. The instant you make someone, like me or anyone else a SPIRITUAL LEADER to you, instead of just someone who is sharing something that you already know and simply have forgotten, you stunt your own growth and you refuse to enter into the land of promise that waits for you.

John 6:15
When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.

You see, when those people were coming against me, I had so many other people encouraging me and telling me such wonderful things. Things like, you are the only one that has this truth, you are the mouthpiece of God, etc, etc… in fact they were saying that I was something greater than I am, and greater than them, and like Jesus when the people were amazed at what he had done in the land, he knew they wanted him to be their king, and like Jesus, I ALSO DEPARTED… I want no part of that. This is why I almost shut down my facebook account for good last night, and thought perhaps it was time to depart from everyone for good. People were starting to think higher of me than they should, on both sides of the equation. Some saying I am the mouthpiece of the devil, others saying I am the mouthpiece of God… the truth is, we are all both.

When we are led by our ego, we speak from the flesh (devil/ignorance/lies/lusts)… when we are led by the spirit, we speak from the spirit (God/Truth/Love)… And as long as you can’t tell the difference between the two, you will be hopelessly doubleminded and at war within.

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.

I digress, so I departed for a night. Took a breather and was in prayer all night, deep reflection for those that don’t like the word prayer :)… Up until 4 am, in my bed couldn’t sleep. Telling myself all sorts of lies about myself, I don’t measure up, I’m not the best husband, father, son, friend, I am stupid, ugly, dumb, etc, etc… and this temptation lasted all night. And I knew that was all it was, but I also knew it would pass and I would shake it off me. You see sometimes, you need those moments where you condemn yourself to realize you are none of those things.

Revelation 2:10
Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life

You know when those times come, just understand that this (sin/foolish thinking) is in fact doing a good work for you, it is reminding you that when you condemn yourself YOU HURT YOURSELF, it is a great teacher this thing called the LAW of DEATH (ignorance). But if you are faithful unto this death, you will be given a crown of life for hanging in there and coming to the knowledge that you indeed are perfect, spotless, and beautiful in Christ (your true life).

While I was in this DEATH mindset, one thing kept coming to mind. And it was how so many followed Jesus so long as he fed them bread… But the instant he said, you must be as he is, they said he was blasphemous, a liar, deceiver, and condemned him, lied about him… You see so long as he was opening up the scriptures bit by bit for them, they LOVED HIM, but the instant he said, you have to EAT MY FLESH and DRINK MY BLOOD – In essence, you have to be ME, they were like SEE YA JESUS!

And this is the same thing I am beginning to find today. People want their bellies filled (carnal thinking) filled with insights and revelation, but we aren’t to LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, but EVERY WORD that comes out of GOD’S MOUTH… And this is the WORD YOU MUST DIGEST,

Philippians 2:5,6
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.

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

I will be no King over any of you, I am not a spiritual leader, I am just who I am, and I am the same as you, as Jesus, as anymore… for we are all ONE.

Good ole Israel begged for a KING OVER THEM. God didn’t want that. God doesn’t anyone to come between the unity of God’s spirit. But carnal man (egokind) will always seek a King to rule them, to lead them, because they prefer being dumb sheep instead of realizing they are to be SHEPHERD’S THEMSELVES.

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

So enter in, become the Shepherd, because… we are lights of this world, living epistles, the word of God revealed, the children of the most high, and to believe you are anything less is to SIN (miss the mark of who you really are).

I apologise if my short absence caused anyone any trouble at all. I can’t promise it won’t happen again, but I can promise, that it is for everyone’s good, mine and yours. For everything that happens in life is destined to happen, and eventually it will all bring us to a place where the only King we will have, is LOVE (God is Love and Truth and Spirit).
