On Earth As It Is In Heaven

Hold unto your bibles everyone because this short essay is going to reveal something that will indeed light a fuse within you that will burn bright for all the world to see. The question is…

Who will believe our report? and to whom is the “arm of the Lord” revealed?
Isaiah 53:1

By the way, the ARM of the LORD simply means… Who will exercise the power and wisdom of God in this world? Who will make their earth as it is in heaven… and KNOW they are doing so. (I will explain this further soon)

Who will see what the blind cannot? Who will put their lives where their mouths are?

A wonderful passage from the Gospel Of Thomas comes to mind… Jesus said: He who seeks, let him not cease seeking until he finds; and when he finds he will be troubled, and when he is troubled he will be amazed, and he will reign over All.

Today I posted a simple sentence. “If we believe we know better we have ruled out the possibility of ever learning more.” This powerful sentence must be acknowledged because if you came to this website, and to this essay believing you already know all there is to know than you will learn nothing at all.

However, if you come here because, as the Gospel of Thomas declares, you are seeking… then you MUST continue to seek if you are ever to find.

In addition, a wise man knows there is always more to know. Especially when it comes to the “Lord’s Prayer”. Which happens to be a prayer of great significance I dare say. Considering, it is the ONLY PRAYER Jesus gave as an example of HOW WE ALL SHOULD PRAY (communicate with God, or the great I am, Inspiration, Source, or whatever name you attribute to “THE EXISTING ONE”, which literally is the translation of the word “LORD”.

“A creator creates, and an infinite world of possibility awaits those who SEEK AFTER IT.” – Thomas James

And when you do SEEK after (whatever “IT” is that you hope to find here in this essay) I promise you might just find “IT”… IF, you aren’t “CERTAIN” you already know all there is too know about this prayer.

And then IF “Wisdom” permits what you find in this essay may even “trouble” you. Just like that quote from the Gospel of Thomas.

“Troubled”, because what you once believed may not be the truth after all, or it may no longer be the truth you need.

And when this “FOUND WORD” or “New Revelation” meets your long held belief system there may be a fight. You may either find yourself rejecting outright what I share in these next couple of pages, or you may JUMP RIGHT IN and find that this truth can set you free.

Of course any new idea, at first, is troubling. Few like change after all. Regardless of how foolish is to hate such. Considering, LIFE IS CHANGE!
CHANGE is ALL LIFE IS.

Without CHANGE there is no growth, and without growth, a person no longer TRULY LIVES. For life itself is GROWTH!

This is why I hope your spirit is troubled whenever you visit here. Just as it was in the parable of the man trying to get healed in the Bethesda pool. We find HEALING in the TROUBLING OF THE WATERS (doctrines/understanding) indeed.

I would like to point out that in the parable it is said, the WATERS are troubled by an “ANGEL”— which really simply means a “MESSENGER”.

And who is this messenger that wants to trouble the waters of BETHESDA’S POOL today? — ME 🙂 More over I believe this is a WORD in due SEASON.

pool

Notice it is a CERTAIN season…

4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

Let us view this a different way… in a TIME OF CERTAINTY a messenger shared a MESSAGE that TROUBLED the collective belief pool. Ironically, in a TIME OF CERTAINTY a CERTAIN MAN believes he must be helped by another to be healed.


5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

This “certain” man who wanted into the pool of troubled waters is very much like those who think they know it all already. They are “certain” of how things are meant to be. No growth there. This man was CERTAIN he needed help from another. The people there were CERTAIN that they needed the literal waters to be stirred up to be healed. EVERYONE was CERTAIN that healing came OUTSIDE OF THEM, and yet… the TRUTH IS from the beginning everyone has the power to PICK UP THEIR MAT AND WALK!

This CERTAIN man, believed he needed another to help him. He gave away all of his power. This is why he was called IMPOTENT, because HE, like many today ARE WAITING for a SAVIOR instead of simply SAVING THEMSELVES by following the pattern left before them.

Many of you reading this understands what that means. While others still believe that JESUS did all the work. As opposed to seeing that JESUS WAS THE ONLY WAY… meaning, do what he did, know what he knew, and love. This is what a LEADER SAYS… follow me… do as I do… THIS IS THE MESSAGE THAT HAS BEEN MISSED.

Luke 9:23
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

NEWS FLASH EVERYONE…. Jesus NEVER claimed to HEAL ANYONE!

Jesus always stated very clearly…. YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WHOLE!

DID YOU CATCH THAT? Please let that sink in…

Matthew 9:29
Then touched he their eyes, saying, According TO YOUR faith be it unto you.

According to YOUR FAITH not Jesus’s actions.

So when Jesus came up on this CERTAIN MAN who believed that he needed ANOTHER to help get him where he wanted to be… Jesus saw him CAUGHT IN THAT “LIE” — (YES, another way of looking at this passage)

6 When Jesus saw him LIE, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

And so… just as Jesus asked the impotent CERTAIN man who believed the lie that he had no power at all… I ask you…. WILL YOU BE MADE WHOLE?

BECAUSE the TRUTH, I promise WILL set you free.

So, if this following exploration of what the Lord’s prayer really means, troubles you, remember soon you will be amazed to find out what it means, and when you do, you will RULE over every aspect of your life.

YOU FAITH WILL MAKE YOU WHOLE!!!!

Now pay attention… and see if you CATCH THIS…

Jesus asked the man… WILL YOU BE MADE WHOLE?

The question I would then ask Jesus is… “HOW IS ONE TO BE MADE WHOLE?”

And this is where the Lightning Comes From Heaven…. “YOU FAITH HAS MADE YOU WHOLE!”

Matthew 9:22
But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WHOLE. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

And why is that?

Because FAITH is the Lifeblood of CREATION. And we are CREATORS… Because we are the offspring of a CREATOR.

And it is OUR FATHER’S WILL that all be saved from the LIE we are all CERTAIN of… that WE HAVE NO POWER AT ALL.

When in fact….

Matthew 18:19
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching ANY THING that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

And where is the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN?

IT IS WITHIN YOU… Within the IDEA of YOU… The IDEA OF YOU (Who you believe yourself to be) is the IMAGE of God. Just as my child was made in the IMAGE of my wife and I, so too are we the off spring of the Great I AM… the EXISTING ONE…

Which brings me to the crux of this essay. This morning a wonderful new friend of mine here on Facebook named Daniel Skillman (look him up on Facebook) has come into some deep and wonderful insight… THE pool of his collective understanding was troubled as well, and because of it HE became amazed and now is sharing some wonderful thoughts and questions with everyone.

This morning he raised the question, “What does… FATHER YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN,” mean?

The LORD’S PRAYER indeed… I have taught on this subject before however I believed that I should dedicate one paper to this alone. I left my thoughts on his page.

Our Father, Who art thou in heaven

The first thing we must look at is where this is all taking place… WITHIN YOU… We are not praying to some far away distant God, you MUST know this by now if you have found this website.

We also must recognize it is OUR FATHER — not MY FATHER or YOUR FATHER — The one who created me also created you — and this CREATIVE FORCE of SPIRIT AND TRUTH AND LOVE is within us all.

The very next thing we must look at are the words….

Your KINGDOM COME — The KINGDOM is “righteousness (right thinking) peace and joy” — and the word “COME” means “to be manifested, or revealed”

It is the same word that is used for when Christ COMES (IS MANIFESTED/REVEALED) within us 😉

So the prayer continues…“Your Kingdom come” = “May the right thought, peace and joy be revealed within me”

Next we MUST really look at “YOUR WILL BE DONE” — the first obvious thing we MUST address is what is GOD’S WILL?

Ready for this?

It is the FATHER’S WILL that ALL BE SAVED just like the certain man. It is the Father’s will that all be made whole.

John 6:39
And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

And GODS WILL is done ON EARTH as it is in HEAVEN.

The scripture’s reveal that the EARTH is a symbol of Man’s ways and thoughts while HEAVEN is a symbol of God’s ways and thoughts.

Isaiah 55:9
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

So one could say this prayer is about a total unity of HEAVEN and EARTH… God’s will performed by man… with the understanding that we are in the Father and the Father is completely within us… THAT WE ARE ONE!

and ONCE we realize this… THAT WE ARE ONE… Then we are made whole.

Now watch this… another way of looking at the prayer…

That YOUR WILL BE DONE on EARTH (in the temporal and physical) as it IS in HEAVEN (spiritual and mental) — that THE TWO BECOME ONE!

This is GODS WILL…. that can only be done… by understanding….

WHATEVER IS BOUND IN HEAVEN IS BOUND IN EARTH… whatever is loosed in heaven is loosed in earth…

OUR FAITH makes us all…

And with FAITH ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

Matthew 17:20
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

It is interesting to NOTE that … WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE AS WELL…

Luke 1:37
For with God nothing shall be impossible.

That should get your ATTENTION quick…

That should TROUBLE your waters because this is a huge revelation if you have ears to hear it.

With FAITH all things are possible… With GOD all things are possible… FAITH makes you whole… GOD makes you whole….

FAITH and GOD seem to do the same thing…. Isn’t that interesting?

Think about it… YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK… You are RULED by what you believe…

People today refuse to believe that they are co-creating their life, both the good and the bad… and yet, their EXPERIENCE is a direct result of what they BELIEVE is HAPPENING AT THAT PARTICULAR MOMENT.

So, it can be said… that GOD is your FAITH… and FAITH is your GOD… in a manner of speaking.

And so the prayer is that WE WOULD FULLY UNDERSTAND that GOD’S WILL is done ON EARTH as it is IN HEAVEN.

Meaning… we are either ruled by the GOD of this world (faith in fear, lies, shame, regret, worthlessness, hopelessness, etc) or we are CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH GOD (FAITH) — LOVE, AND THE SPIRIT (THOUGHTS) OF TRUTH.

This is a major key to the Kingdom people… The fully understanding of the LORDS PRAYER…. one must fully understand WHAT THE WORD “Hallowed” means….

For many, it means a name to be revered… Like Our Father your Name is soooooo very holy…. and this is the way it has been taught.

However, that is NOT what the word HALLOWED means…. Here is the definition: to render or acknowledge, to separate from profane things and dedicate to God…

CATCH THAT…. Our Father who art thou in Heaven… ACKNOWLEDGE the TRUTH and SEPARATE from the ways of the world… Your NAME is to ACKNOWLEDGE the truth, or render it… and to separate from the profane… Hallowed does not means “Holy is your name”

The only prayer there is IS to ACKNOWLEDGE who we are within separate ourselves from who we are not without and to fully understand that YOUR FAITH creates your reality. The WILL of the ONE WHO EXISTS is to UNITE the SPIRIT MAN with the INTELLECTUAL AND SENSUAL MAN — so the TWO BECOME ONE FLESH.

Ephesians 2:15
Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

The prayer is a reminder that WE HAVE A PART TO PLAY with everything that happens in our life. Because it is GOD’S WILL.

Matthew 18:18
Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Our FAITH will make us whole… WE ARE RULED by our FAITH… We are the projection of our faith into this world. This is why our experience is always whatever we believe it to be.

So I pray today the waters have been troubled indeed, and this has led the way to amazing possibility, and you all realize that YOU and the FATHER (EXISTING ONE) are ONE.

What Is Sin?

What Is Sin?

This is an important question. Not just because most people have absolutely no idea what SIN really is, but because it is the ONE thing that is keeping people from truly living their life.

For the wages of sin is death… (Romans‬ ‭6‬:‭23‬ KJV)

This means when you SIN you are rewarded with DEATH (carnal suffering). The “death” we are discussing here is not physical death, although many do experience that as well when they are ruled by the SIN (false belief/foolish thought) that their life is not worth anything.

You see, SIN is a big problem today. Mainly because most have no idea they are sinful… (Full of the wrong thoughts)

I want point out early, to be sinful does NOT always mean people are bad, or have done bad things, many times it means people just don’t know any better.

Of course there are others who do know better and do what is incorrect, or underhanded and improper anyway, regardless the wages are the same.

When you think the wrong thought, or choose the wrong path, your reward will always be less than satisfying. The reason is when anything is done the wrong way it is doomed to fail because the correct way is the only way that truly exists.

Now I can come right out and tell you the word “SIN” simply means to operate outside of what is correct, proper, truthful.

The word SIN itself literally means to miss the Mark.

Think of shooting an arrow at the bullseye on a target and missing the target completely. That is sin.

When you SIN you are missing the point (target) completely.

Proverbs puts it beautifully and simply…

The thought of foolishness is sin… (Proverbs‬ ‭24‬:‭9‬ KJV)

Think about that. Being ignorant is sinful. Not knowing the truth is sinful. Believing a lie is sinful. Being foolish is sinful.

Once again, society has mistaken the word SIN to somehow describe a wicked evil person. However, it simply means, many times, a person who is sinful just does not know any better.

Of course, not knowing any better can lead to greater sins which in many cases are downright evil.

As is the case for the suicide bomber who was convinced, after years of suffering terrible loses due to war and greed, that he would be rewarded for killing the infidel, who in reality is just like him.

The SIN is not just the act of murder, the SIN is also the belief that we are better than others, that we can somehow force people to see things the way we do…

The SIN is believing in a god that would reward murder with paradise.

And the wages of that sin was death indeed.

However, I like to explain SIN another way.

Think of it in terms of riding a bike. SIN would be falling over while trying to ride because you haven’t found your BALANCE yet.

To SIN is not doing something terribly unjust it is simply not doing something the right way.

There is a right way and a wrong way to do things and the right way will always be easier and will produce better results. The wrong way (the sinful way) will always frustrate you, takes more effort, and benefits no one in the long run.

This, my friends, is why we must address the SIN in our life today.

We must look at all those areas in our life where we are experiencing frustration, anxiety, fear, pride, and more and find the root cause of it all.

Every problem in your life is a direct result of the SIN (wrong thinking) in your life.

You have a bad relationship? Do you have trouble at work, feel unfulfilled, hate your life, or hate your neighbor?
Do you feel out of control or feel like you never get ahead? Are you worried your life is going nowhere? Don’t care about others? Don’t care about yourself? Guess what? It’s all SIN related.

All of our trouble in life stems from our ignorance within.

And whether you want to believe it or not, we ALL took upon ourselves the SINS of the world the moment we began to believe what we were taught and told by the very people we trusted in the world. From our parents, to our peers, to political and religious leaders.

SIN (foolish thinking) is handed down from generation to generation, until the cycle is broken by one who lays down his sinful life for the good of others. And this my friend is what we all must do today if we are ever to be free.

Let me first address what scripture teaches us about SIN. I will open up some of these passages and provide additional insight to further you along your journey to life everlasting.

Let’s begin with this verse below.

Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. (‭1 John‬ ‭3‬:‭4‬ KJV)

So SIN is a transgression of the LAW of God. A lot of people mix the meaning of this up. They think in terms of breaking man made laws like theft or vandalism. However, the LAW of GOD is a constant. It is a LAW much like gravity.

Many confuse the LAW of God to mean a list of dos and donts recorded by Moses, but we know this not the case. The LAW of GOD is ONE THING and it is LOVE.

Jesus made it clear in the gospels, that the LAW of God was to LOVE.

When the disciple asked what was the most important Law. Jesus answered in a way that contained all of God’s Law.

Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt LOVE the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt LOVE thy neighbour as thyself.

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. (‭Matthew‬ ‭22‬:‭36-40‬ KJV)

Everything that IS God’s law is contained in the word LOVE!

So when we SIN we are transgressing LOVE. And that means we are directly opposing it.

To transgress something means to go against it. Which makes you an adversary to Love and my friend God IS Love, and since everything exists IN God that means SIN is the operation of that which is false.

To SIN is to follow after a LIE.

If you are not LOVING you are SINNING it is as simple as that.

Now let’s define what LOVE is according to scripture using a beautiful passage from 1 Corinthians 13. And let us break it down line by line.

1) Love is patient...

When you are patient everything goes according to plan, you accept things as they are, and you have peace without the need of an actual timeline. You are content with how things are in the here and now and understand that everything is made beautiful in “ITS” time, not the time you have sinfully decide things should happen in.

When you are not patient, you will suffer. Nothing is ever good enough, and you will never be content with how things are in the moment.

As you can see, the wages of impatience is death (carnal suffering)

2) Love is kind

When you LOVE others it is because you know what you do to them you actually do to yourself. To lift others up and to simply be kind all the time will always produce LiFE. When you are KIND it doesn’t matter if others are not, in fact when you are kind you will find even those who are not will treat you better than before. You are not KIND to get something in return, when you are Kind it is simply who you are. And I believe you understand that if you ARE kind it is because you are in a good place emotionally as well as spiritually. And when you are in a good place you have a joy-filled life.

However, if you are cruel it is usually because of the SIN (ignorance) in your heart. Cruelty produces more cruelty. The wages of cruelty is a life lived in misery indeed.

3) It does not envy…

If you envy others than YOU are not content in your life. This is a great SIN, and many are a victim to it. However, when you are content with your life and instead of looking at what you lack you dwell on all you are blessed with your joy will overflow. The wages of envy is death indeed, for you will always live your life miserably. Those who envy are blind to all they have. They are ignorant.

However, when you stop looking outside for more and you no longer ignore the beautiful life you have been blessed with, your life becomes livable once again.

5) Love does not boast…

When a person boasts it is often the result of insecurity and fear. A person who boasts needs outward approval. They are not content with life as it is. They demand that others recognize their value because they follow after the “SIN” (foolish thought) that they are not. The wages of boasting is death as well, whereas the person who needs not the approval of others is a man who is slave to no one.

6) Love is not proud…

To think you know it all is to learn nothing at all. The proud will never inherit a peaceful life because they are unwilling to compromise, to change or to admit when they are wrong.

The branch that will not bend eventually snaps in two. And so will the proud who will also find the wages of such a mindset to be death as well.

However, the humble always consider others before themselves, they always find ways to mend fences, to bridge gaps, because they understand they are no better than those around them.

The proud can never learn and that is why in anger they often burn, while the humble don’t need things to go “their way” to be okay, they live their life with acceptance and because of it they avoid the strife the proud contend with.

7) It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

The expression, “Do unto others as you would like others to do unto you”, has never been more appropriate. Our lives are intrinsically intwined with the lives of everyone else around us. This is LIFE!

If we all lives this way the world would be a very different place and we all would be much, much happier.

However, when people are focused on putting others down, or doing whatever they can to get ahead, snapping every time something does not go their way, or keep track of everything others have done to us… Well the wages of such a way of life is death indeed. What a miserable life it is for those who act this way. Never happy with others, always angry and selfish and constantly counting the way they have been wronged as opposed to seeing how truly sinful (ignorant) they have been for living this way.

8) Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

Love is not just caring for others it is caring for the TRUTH. When you love you take no pleasure in anything but truth. Because the TRUTH is LOVE, it is peaceful collaboration, it is unity, liberty, and freedom… And it never fails…

9) It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

After reading this last line, you tell me if living this way does not sound like LIVING THE RIGHT WAY?

To put others before yourself, to never fear another, to always have a reason to smile and be excited about the future, to always rise to the occasion to not only overcome every obstacle but to have the knowledge of such.

Yes, my friends that is LIVING!

And when we operate in LOVE, and by love I mean … When we are patient, kind, not self serving, not easily angered, no envious or proud, when we no longer dwell on the faults of others, or try to bend others to our will we live in peace.

Sadly, if many say they SIN not they lie to themselves.

We all have fallen short of the mark of a perfect life. The good news is, it need not be that way anymore.

There remains a day for us all to enter into the ease of rest. There remains for all of us a better way.

Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. (‭Hebrews‬ ‭4‬:‭1‬ NIV)

And how do we enter this rest?

By ending our mess!

We need to live out lives without all the fear, anger, shame, worry and lies. We need to accept that everything that is happening to us is actually happening for us, to direct us back to LOVE!

The scriptures say LOVE is salvation. The scriptures express that the TRUTH sets us free.

In this we find life.

We all took upon ourselves the Sins of the World… And we all died (became ignorant) but here is the good news, we all WILL live again.

For just as SIN enters the world through one man and death, so too with the sacrifice of one man can mankind be saved from it all and rise again.

It is time to take responsibility people. It is time to LOVE and to really check yourself. For if in one area you fall, if you find yourself struggle, depressed, anxious, and angry with it all, then it is a good call that there is SIN in your life that needs to be dealt with.

We all need to take our thoughts captive and really focus our intention on the life we desire. We need to study to be silent for our words must be chosen wisely, as they create our world around us. We must die to SIN once and for all by no longer transgressing Gods law of Love and we will find paradise indeed.

Don’t let others fool you, you cannot be saved by another’s sacrifice, you are only saved when you choose to do the same yourself.

It’s time to pick up your cross and Live.

I hope this short entry opened your eyes to the things that are standing in the way of your promise land. I assure you if I didn’t begin practicing what I preach I would be a man most miserable indeed.
