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

EQUAL WITH GOD?


EQUAL WITH GOD?

There is a war going on in your mind Ladies and Gentlemen. You may not even be aware of it. Never the less, every evil under the sun is a result of the unrest within the heart of mankind. This essay is meant to help bring this to an end.

You see, there are two voices in your head, one that leads to life and peace and one that leads to death (suffering/ignorance). The scriptures do a great job expressing this duality. We understand that a double minded man is unstable in all his ways because mankind cannot serve two masters. A person cannot hate and love at the same time just as a person cannot be selfish and charitable at the same time. You see there is a choice that needs to be made. The problem is we have been conditioned since birth to listen to the wrong voice/thought. And so we often follow after pride and hurt feelings doing what we should not, because the wrong voice convinces us “we are in the right.”

Now this deceptive voice disguises itself as you, but it is NOT you. It is an adversary to the REAL YOU. Scripture tells us that one’s enemy is found in his own house. This “house” we often read about is a symbol of a person’s sense of being/soul. And so when we hear this adversaries voice within us, within our sense of BE-ING we can often mistake it for true guidance and ignorantly follow after it. Sadly, when we follow after the wrong voice we find nothing but suffering in return.

Most of us are ruled by this voice. We become so used to the wrong voice that we become slaves to it… The end result is great sorrow.

Psalm 13:2
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

This enemy, this deceptive voice within you is the “YOU”, you sometimes think you are, in your most selfish and prideful moments, BUT ARE NOT! This is the “god” of this world we read about in scripture. This lying voice in our head keeps us blinded, it keeps us from our true potential, as well as from a life of peace and power.

2 Corinthians 4:4
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

This “voice” is the great dragon that makes war with children of God. It is the Father of all lies, the devil, otherwise known in psychological circles as the ID, or as I like to call it, the carnal ego of mankind.

For a better understanding of this voice, after reading this essay, simply watch my video “the trumpet sounds”, or read any article I have on here about the devil/carnal ego of man.

Now this BEASTLY VOICE, also known in scripture as the “Anti-Christ”, this pretender, this monster of a carnal ego or ours doesn’t not have a separate voice, it sounds like us when we hear it within. It uses our own voice against us. What I mean by this is, we process thoughts in the language of our birth within, our thoughts are like an operating program. Each person follows the commands within to know what to do next. The problem is, somewhere along the line, another program (much like a computer virus) was planted and now these TWO VOICES are growing up together, within.

Matthew 13:24-26
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

At first it is very difficult to tell the difference between the Wheat (which are a result of the truth) and the Tares (a result of lies). When we are immature in the faith it is very difficult to know which voice really has our best interest in mind.

The reason being, this adversary, this “strange woman” as scripture describes it, hides within our minds and feeds us selfish lustful thoughts tricking us into doing its bidding. It does this by also tricking us into thinking we are justified to do that which we should not do.

This enemy wants you to think that YOU are the most important person on the planet. That the world and everything revolves around you. Now while in essence this is true, for you are the beginning and the end of your experience… SO IS EVERYONE ELSE. We are all in this together. We are all ONE. However, this voice wants you to think that YOU ARE GOD. That you can do as you please. This voice convinces YOU that you are the judge the jury and the executioner if the situation permits.

Ironically, this is also how you can tell if you are under the thumb of this enemy. If you think higher of yourself, if you leave peace and unity for anger, fear, shame, and division, if you stop loving others, YOU are being ruled by the voice of this “strange woman”.

This is why Jesus said, all one needs to do is LOVE and the law is fulfilled.

Matthew 22:
37 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.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

This above scripture also teaches us the only way to KNOW GOD IS TO LOVE. If you DO NOT LOVE your neighbor (any one besides yourself), as scripture states… YOU DO NOT KNOW GOD. The scripture goes on to say… because GOD IS LOVE.

Now I would like to take a brief moment to address something about this above scripture. Because of the line “God is LOVE”. The reason is many have reduced God to simply being an emotion because of it. Scripture states, God is Love… hence many state that is all God must be.

Yet, scripture states God is much more than that and if we are going to use scripture as source material for our faith we must truly examine this claim.

Let me list a couple of passages that also describe what God is… and then I will explain what the word “IS”, in “God IS love” really means. The first of which I believe many must grab hold of today… and that is, GOD IS NOT A MAN!

Numbers 23:19
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Deuteronomy 4:24
For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire

Deuteronomy 4:7
For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the Lord our God is in all things that we call upon him for?

Deuteronomy 33:27
The eternal God is thy refuge

1 Chronicles 17:2
Then Nathan said unto David, Do all that is in thine heart; for God is with thee.

Psalm 75:7
But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Habakkuk 3:19
The Lord God is my strength

John 4:24
God is a Spirit

2 Corinthians 1:18
But as God is true

The scriptures tell us no one can know God at anytime, that God’s ways are past finding out… Jesus himself said, that the FATHER WAS GREATER THAN HE. The scriptures state, that no one knows the times or the seasons but the Father. Jesus makes it clear that the FATHER’S WILL is greater than HIS PERSONAL WILL. For years, many evangelicals made the mistake to say JESUS WAS GOD. I have an essay that disputes this. And now today, many ex-Christians have seemed to start a movement founded on the idea that MAN IS GOD. I understand, that things I have shared may have sounded this way as well, however, this was never my intention. We are NOT the creator of all things, we are a co-creator, ONE WITH THE ONE THAT IS ALL THINGS!

And while, I would find it hard to believe ANYONE CAN TRULY KNOW “GOD”, as God’s ways are past our conscious mind’s ability to find out, just as we cannot know what it is that makes our heart beat…. WE CAN UNDERSTAND that to know God… ONE MUST LOVE! For LOVE is the pinnacle of creation.

Everything that is, and is not, and is yet to be, is the will of God. God is in all, through all, and IS all.

This is why Jesus thought it not robbery to make himself equal with God. Because he understood that God was IN him, and he was IN God… and yet, Jesus would never allow anyone to think that he was GOD… This is why he told the rich man, “why callest thou me good… there is NONE GOOD but the Father”. I would like to point out, that Jesus never said “I AM GOD” — instead he said, “before ABRAHAM was I AM”… BIG DIFFERENCE.

Let’s look at that scripture here Jesus supposedly claimed to be equal with God for a moment:

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

Let us break that down… The word FORM means an EXTERNAL EXPRESSION of something, you know LIKE AN “IMAGE”.

The word “EQUAL” does not mean “one and the same” however! Obviously, that would contradict his other claim that ONLY GOD WAS GOOD… The word “equal” in Greek is translated better as “to agree together” to be on the same page, as scripture describes “One accord” –

The root word for equal “Eido” means “to see, to perceive, to know” —

Jesus was saying, it wasn’t a bad thing to be of one accord, to be ONE WITH in word and deed, THAT IT WASN’T TAKING AWAY FROM GOD TO TRULY KNOW GOD, to truly EXPRESS GOD… AND YES, TO DO WHAT GOD CAN DO!

Just it is NOT ROBBERY to see, to comprehend, and to express the very wisdom and power of the spirit of “God” within us in the temporal plain.

This IS what we are… “Christ” – The power and wisdom of God.

Jesus understood, that if People SAW him, they also could “SEE/Understand/Perceive” God… for he was in God, and God was in him… He, like you and I, are the OUTWARD EXPRESSIONS of “Him” — we are GOD’S IMAGE — God is the spirit of LIFE that is our source, which animates us, WHICH IS THE TRUE US… for we are all ONE.

Ephesians 4:4-6
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

The word “I am that I am” translates better as “I will become whatever I will become” – I will be whatever I will be… and that explains why each of us seems to be so unique, while at heart we are all ONE AND THE SAME SPIRIT.

In the past, I have described God as Love and truth. I have gone on to share that we and God are One. Meaning, that IN HIM WE ALL HAVE OUR EXISTENCE…

Acts 17:27-29
27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

In addition, I have said, WE CREATE! Of course we create… We can make joy and peace, or war and misery. The reason is, the SPIRIT WITHIN US is not mocked… whatever a person sows they will reap!

You see people mankind was given dominion, the scriptures state “all is created by the son, through the son, and for the son” and WE ARE THE SON (elohiym/gods) – YET WE ARE NOT ALL GOD IS. We are a unique part of the whole.

Colossians 1:15-19
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell

WE ARE NOT GOD ALONE… We are the IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD, THE FIRSTBORN OF EVERYTHING! Everything was created BY us and for US and by US do all things consist… So in a sense everything that is IS God, but we are NOT while we still walk around here with our human identity.

Jesus said, I go to my Father for he is GREATER than I am… And I say the same.

If you have seen me you have seen God… but GOD IS SO MUCH BIGGER THAN LITTLE OLD ME!

Now, that other voice in our head may try to trick us into thinking WE ARE IT, this is depicted in the scripture where Jesus was tempted (drawn away by his own lusts) by the Devil (the ID, Carnal Ego, Strange Woman, father of all lies) but his response is one we all must meditate on, especially today when we see so many declaring such.

Matthew 4
10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Now in a sense, Jesus is also saying… Zip it Ego… You work for me… The word Lord “The one who truly exists” – That is God, and yes Jesus, and We are as much of God, as God is us… We are IN him, and He is IN us… YET instead of acting like we are the creator of all things… we MUST serve others (for they are us as well). What we do to one, we do to ourselves.

The DEVIL in this story… is the “YOU” YOU THINK YOU ARE! It is your separate identity. And it wants WHO YOU REALLY ARE to bow down and worship it. Sadly, so many today are doing it ignorantly. This is why we see so much suffering in the world.

And while others today are simply reducing God to an emotion called Love… All one needs to do this is dig a bit deeper into these scriptures as opposed to taking it to mean what it states literally.

The word “IS” in this passage, is the third person singular of “to be”, indicating MOOD…. “to EXIST in, or to BE IN, LOVE”… GOD IS NOT SIMPLY LOVE! “God” is simply a word to describe the indescribable life force that everything consists us. And what the scripture “GOD IS LOVE” is explaining is…. You cannot even being to think you KNOW GOD, UNLESS YOU LOVE! Because LOVE is the evidence that you are at PEACE with yourself and everything… WHICH IS GOD.

In addition, when you don’t exist “IN LOVE”, which creates harmony and peace, you will find yourself in a world of hurt.

So when we follow after the “lips” of this “strange woman” (as scripture describes this adversary, ID, Carnal Ego, Anti-Christ, etc) telling us WE ARE GOD AND WE CAN DO WHAT WE WANT we find only suffering.

Now, this suffering as it turns out is a GOOD THING. It is a Karmic Principle at work. It guarantees our safe return to the UNITY that we are.

2 Corinthians 7:10
For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation

This is why scripture states, all will come to the knowledge of the truth and the stature of the perfect man, all will be saved, all of creation will sing praised… every wrong will be made right, every tear will be wiped away… and more!

If we stepped out of unity with one another and we did not suffer because of it, we would forever be lost. However, since we do reap what we sow, we do learn after being burned by our ignorance, it is better to do good than bad, to love rather than hate.

And so we MUST learn to ignore the voice of this “strange woman”.

Now, to do this we must first acknowledge there is a problem to begin with. WE HAVE TO GET OVER OURSELVES. WE HAVE TO GET OVER THE IDEA THAT WE ARE RIGHT AND OTHERS ARE WRONG.

Wherever your heart is your treasure will be found. Meaning, if you want to be in distress you will discover distress, if you want to follow after drama, you will be rewarded with drama. So too, if you want to be at peace eventually you will.

If we want our suffering to end, we must find a way to IGNORE this counterfeit voice in our head.

WE MUST RESIST THIS DEVIL SO IT FLEES.

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

This will offer you a first step in the right direction I pray.

Proverbs 2:16
To deliver YOU from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flatters with her words. 17 Which forsakes the guide of her youth, and forgets the covenant of her God. 18 For her house inclines unto death, and her paths unto the dead.

As a Man in a committed relationship it troubles me to see how many marriages are torn apart by adultery. Now while this is a real world issue, the real reason behind it is a “spiritual” one.

Let me first point out what the word “spirit” means. You see it isn’t anything truly supernatural at all. The word SPIRIT is simply a word used to describe your thoughts and words. All over scripture we find this. Whether it be the “spirit of truth” or the “spirit of lies”, the “spirit of God” or the “spirit of the world”, one does not have to go far to find this.

2 Samuel 23:2
The “Spirit of the Lord” spake by me, and his WORD was in my tongue.

The spirit of the Lord (existing one) should be understood as one’s TRUE THOUGHTS. Jesus explained that his words were spirit, and they were LIFE.

John 6:63
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

It is ALL ABOUT THOUGHT people. The problem is, too many today are focused on the wrong thoughts/voice in their head. This is a result of many years of conditioning on the part of our parents, our peers, and society as a whole. Since birth we are programmed to put our mind on the things of the FLESH and the LUSTS thereof.

Romans 8:5-6
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Now the works of the Flesh should be evident to us MAKING IT EASIER to follow after the SPIRIT. However, the Flesh (Carnal ego) is at war with the Spirit (God) and this is why we find ourselves in the predicament we are in.

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.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

So what does all of this have to do with LITERAL MARRIAGE and ADULTERY? Well, we understand the things that are NOT SEEN by those that ARE.

So, as we see great division in the literal marriage bed, we also must understand this is analogous of the division we see in our hearts and relationship with God (SPIRIT of truth, love, power, life, unity).

More than 50% of marriages end in divorce. In addition, many more that are married are miserable rather than happy and fulfilled. Not to mention how many have affairs to try to compensate for the lack of love and excitement they find in their own marriage. And so they listen to the wrong voice in their heads and go behind their spouse’s back, whether physically, emotionally, or both. Now, I pointed all of this out because these “literal” adulterous relationships speak volumes about what is going on spiritually today.

As I stated earlier, the LITERAL is always an ALLEGORY or PARABLE of the SPIRITUAL.

By the things seen, we understand the unseen. In fact, everything that happens in our life explains where you are spiritually. You can know where a person’s heart is by the treasure they seek.

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

For many in a literal marriage, sadly, it seems all too easy to be led away into an adulterous relationship with a strange woman or man, that is to say, a woman or man beside the one who has stood by the spouses side and loved and adored them, just as God loves and adores each and every one of us.

We will begin to see that as a Husband and Wife leave a literal marriage for an affair with a strange man or strange woman, mankind is also lured away spiritually to have an adulterous affair with their carnal mind/devil/id. In a sense cheating on the truth of “God” for the lies of this world (our lusts). Which, really is nothing more than people believing things about God, those around them, and themselves, that just AREN’T TRUE.

When lust takes hold of a person’s thoughts they follow after that “STRANGE WOMAN”. Anytime a fearful thought arises within us, deceiving us to follow after it, it makes it possible for that person to enter into this adulterous affair.

And like any literal adulterous relationship, at first the man or woman is deceived into believing this new relationship is just what he or she needs. However, the truth is, no affair ends pleasantly. And to return to the true marriage, whether in one’s heart or home can be very difficult.

The man or woman who left this true relationship/marriage will feel shame, may end up with a disease and will perhaps be punished by the true spouse for doing such a thing. A separation may occur or even divorce and families will be torn apart because of it all.

You see, as dangerous as a literal affair is, so too, we find pain, suffering, guilt, shame, and separation when people leave the TRUTH for the lies of that “strange woman” (false beliefs, lies, false gods, idolatrous beliefs, etc)

More over, just as the temptation is always present to stray from Husband and Wife, the temptation to stray away from our true husband (Christ= The Power and Wisdom of God) is one hundred fold stronger.

THE FLESH LUSTS AGAINST THE SPIRIT! The NATURAL rejects the SPIRITUAL!

Now for those that think CHRIST is a single, literal man. I have to tell you, this is a false teaching. For CHRIST is in ALL MANKIND, Christ is the LIGHT of the world and our LIFE is hid in Christ. We have to stop seeing Christ as a LITERAL SEPARATE MAN, and start seeing Christ as what I wrote above, the spirit of LIFE AND GOD that is within all MANKIND – the anointing of God’s truth and wisdom and power.

1 Corinthians 1:30
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

1 Corinthians 1:24
…Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

For those who say, “No! Christ is just Jesus” I will direct you to John 1.

We are meant to be LIVING EPISTLES (WORDS of truth/spirit of truth) – WORDS/SWORD of God – We are AS JESUS, AND JESUS AS US.

Matthew 5:14
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

When we understand that the WORD OF GOD, which according to scripture is TRUTH, is within all mankind then we can move onto step two.

Luke 17:21
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you

Step Two, is then seeing that this Kingdom which is the WORD of God, which if our LIFE and TRUTH is meant to be seen (SYMBOLICALLY) as a Husband to us. In other words, we are to become ONE WITH IT. To express the WORD of God outwardly. To GIVE BIRTH to the CHRIST WITHIN.

Just as a Wife may leave a Husband, and a Husband may leave a Wife, for an affair causing heartache… We can leave the TRUTH for the LIES of the world, enter into an adulterous relationship causing heartache as well.

This is why we see so many instances in scripture of an adulteress, prostitute, or cheating spouse. This is a great allegory of how we have all gone after the STRANGE WOMAN (lies of religion and the world) and are hurt because of it.

The story of HOSEA (which in HEBREW means SALVATION) is a wonderful allegory of how much pain is caused by our adulterous affair with the LUSTS OF THIS WORLD.

Hosea 1
2The beginning of the word of the LORD by Hosea. And the LORD said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the LORD

Notice, how the LAND had committed whoredoms/ADULTERY. And what is a “WHORE” but a symbol of a woman or man who cares very little about themselves, or those they sleeps around with, for pay or not.

And this, in effect, is what we do spiritually every time we lay down with a false belief. It is all a parable of spiritual adultery. If you’ll receive it. This is also why we see so many literal marriages ending, so much cheating, and so many miserable people in this temporal/physical world.

What we see in the physical is an outward manifestation of what is going on within.

The lies of the “STRANGE WOMAN” is ruining the spiritual, emotional, and physical lives of so many. Once you learn to avoid the “Words=Thoughts” of this “Strange Woman” you will be like GOMER when she finally is healed of her many hurts and enters into a true relationship with her Husband “SALVATION” again. And then NOTHING shall separate you from SALVATION, which is LOVE again.

Romans 8:38-39
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

YES, WE ARE SAVED FROM OUR IGNORANCE… AND IT IS LOVE THAT SAVE US!

And this EVERYONE will come to understand, but first we must learn to avoid the “STRANGE WOMAN’S” words, which are lies, false beliefs, etc.

Like literal and physical sex, once the two become one, a child is conceived.

And so spiritually, once you become one with a lie or false teaching/belief, a spiritual adulterous child (belief system) is formed.

Just look at the ALLEGORY of ABRAHAM and HAGAR. God said he would give him the child of promise (Isaac=symbolic of Christ birthed within). Yet, Abraham didn’t trust God’s WORD as TRUTH, so he believes the only way to get what he so desperately wants was to have an adulterous affair with his wife’s handmaid/slave. This slave is symbolic of (A belief system of bondage). And when Abraham leaves the PURITY of his marriage bed to produce what he wants he gives birth to ISHMAEL.

The 1st born is of the earth, earthy (ignorant)… Ishmael was NEVER meant to inherit a thing. FLESH AND BLOOD cannot inherit the Kingdom of God (righteousness, peace, joy, and power). Our carnal effort will bring us nothing but heartache.

Soon Abraham learns he has to get rid of HAGAR and ISHMAEL or the TRUE SON (ISAAC) that God promised, would be killed by the child of the adulterous affair.

There are many references to the STRANGE WOMAN in scripture. She goes by many names, the ADULTEROUS WOMAN, the harlot, even the WHORE OF BABYLON, and these names speak of the thought of rebellion (which is witchcraft).

Let me give you an everyday example of how the “Strange Woman” can work. Not super-spiritual, just everyday life and how this “strange Woman” works her evil ways in your life…

Your loved one is supposed to call, or your loved is late from coming home from work… NOW thoughts flood your mind, but are these thoughts ones that build faith and give you peace, or are they thoughts of worry, fear, anger and dread?

Do you think, “He, or she, is on her way nothing to worry about”? -OR- does your mind go to a darker place … “It’s an affair I knew it.” “He’s in an accident and probably died.”

The question is, what thoughts dominate your mind.

You see, God hasn’t give us the SPIRIT OF FEAR. No, GOD’S THOUGHTS toward us, are not fearful, hateful, pride filled, jealous thoughts…. God’s thoughts toward us are PEACE.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

When you grab hold of that then you will ONLY GRAB HOLD of thoughts of peace, which give you the EXPECTED END, salvation from any situation!

However, if you listen to the voice of the STRANGE WOMAN (your carnal ego, id, devil) you will find only pain and suffering.

The voice (thoughts) of the Strange Woman (the carnal mind) speaks only fear to our hearts/souls… And so we must remember God has NOT given us the spirit of fear.

The STRANGE WOMAN will fill our head, with confusing thoughts. When situations in our life arrive, we get scared, worried, and then we find all we can do is focus on the WORST. we don’t know which what to do, which way to turn, we think our lives our over as we know. We find only pain and hurt instead of peace and joy.

YET GOD, is not the author of confusion, is He?

1 Corinthians 14:33
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace

An author WRITES thoughts, RECORDS thoughts on paper. We see here God does not write CONFUSION and FEAR into our thoughts, but he writes thought of Love and PEACE. And so every time we leave this peace, we in fact are entering into an adulterous spiritual affair with our enemy the carnal ego. This is bad news.

Now, knowing this, you would think that every time worry creeps up into our hearts that we would do as Christ taught us and take those thoughts captive and cast them out. YET WE DON’T!

2 Corinthians 10:5
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Notice, the word IMAGINATION… You see Fear, as my dear friend, David Fields would say, is FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL…

In other words, these horrible things that we constantly worry about are ignorant imaginings NOTHING MORE.

Now CHRIST is LIFE, PEACE, SOUND MIND, HOPE, SALVATION! So, anything, ANY IMAGINATION, that exalts itself against the knowledge that GOD DOES NOT GIVE US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR… MUST BE TAKEN CAPTIVE AND CAST OUT!

We must begin to really PAY ATTENTION to what thoughts we are thinking.

If the thoughts we are thinking do not bring peace to our hearts, it’s a good call, those thoughts are NOT OF GOD! And if they are NOT OF GOD, they are NOT TRUE, and if they are NOT TRUE, than they are LIES!

And we shouldn’t be worried about a bunch of nonsense lies should we? 🙂 Of course not!

Now why on earth would we do this?

Well it is because we have been conditioned to exalt fear in our lives over peace and we have been conditioned to think higher of ourselves than others. This is why the world is the way it is.

Why there is so much pain, hate, war, rape, the list goes on and on. Because this hellish world gets all of us addicted to the voice of the STRANGE WOMAN. We love listening to thoughts of fear, our televisions remind us that we should be SCARED! We are so used to being selfish fearful animals that to believe we should have hope, and have power, and that love and forgiveness should rule us… SEEMS RIDICULOUS!

And so instead of casting down these negative thoughts we commit our attention to them, and together we begin to birth out of our REBELLIOUS WOMB (soul) all sorts of hell….

When our spouse is late for example, we immediately think the worst,”There was an accident” “She is cheating on me” “Someone killed him” “I told her not to wear that necklace out of the house, she was robbed it must be” “I knew I couldn’t trust that cheat!”,”We’re never going to make that payment”,”My kids are going to fail in life”,”I’ll never be happy”,”Life sucks”,”Everyone hates me”,”I’m going to lose my job”,”I’ll never get ahead”…

LIES, LIES, LIES PEOPLE!!!! And we’re ADDICTED TO THEM! And so for hours, days, weeks, months, years we worry and worry every bit of peace in our hearts away… “Why?” you ask.

Because we followed the VOICE OF THAT STRANGE WOMAN.

Whether it be us worrying about losing our jobs, relationships, finances, weight loss, children, EBOLA, my goodness the list goes on and on and on. We worry and are tossed to and fro with such fear that it is no wonder people end up doing such horrible things.

The voice of a Strange Woman is DECEIT itself.

God warns us to listen to only his voice…. But we know darn well, that we have been conditioned to NEVER listen to the truth… THIS HABIT MUST BE BROKEN.

There are spirits (thoughts) that minister and help us, and there are tormenting spirits (thoughts) that rob and hurt us. And the Strange Women is the mother of Torment itself.

SO, how do we move away from the ignorance of this adulterous spiritual affair that seems so appealing to us? Well, scripture has a few things to say about it.

Proverbs 5:1
My son, take my wisdom to heart, and turn your ear to my understanding:

Let us study to be quiet and listen to the calming voice of our Father. Let us pray for Godly wisdom which is a tree of life and learn understanding. Let us learn to discern (tell the difference between) the voice of the kingdom and the voice of the whore of this world.

Proverbs 5:3
For the lips of a strange woman taste like a honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:

The same goes for RELIGIOUS TEACHING that are not true. You see the STRANGE WOMAN’S LIPS taste like a honeycomb (symbolic of enlightenment/truth) and her Mouth is smoother than oil (symbolic of wisdom) which is why religious lies are so appealing to us, because they seem like they are enlightened truth! However, when we follow after lies we find the end of it all is destruction.

Look, it’s easy for us to listen to the tormenting spirits/thoughts in our mind instead of the true godly ones. It’s easy to follow after that temptation and ignorantly go down that hellish bunny trail created by fear, worry and doubt. But we must learn to stop… We must learn to stay with the VOICE OF TRUTH, as a MAN STAYS WITH HIS WIFE, AND A WIFE SHOULD STAY WITH HER HUSBAND.

WE MUST LEARN TO TRUST GOD, BY ONLY TRUSTING THOUGHTS OF PEACE.

Proverbs 5:4 But her (strange woman) end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.

As mentioned earlier, all affairs end badly. And that also goes for believing the wrong thoughts that come to mind. If you believe you are cursed, then you will be cursed. If you believe you are blessed and deserve peace and joy, then you will find it.

Proverbs 23:7
7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he

An affair with the STRANGE WOMAN leads us directly into the pit of hell. And HELL (our ignorant torment) is a spiritual place that many of us cry from day and night. Hell is here and now in our minds, and many times we find ourselves weeping and gnashing our teeth because we left the Voice of Truth for the Lies of the “strange woman”.

Proverbs 5:6 Unless you should ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that you cannot know them. Hear me now then, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.

Unless we CONTINUE to think on heavenly things, unless we push forward to the truth and always stay positive in our mind we will NEVER be free from the STRANGE WOMAN and her beguiling, and tormenting ways. Unless we continue to hold fast our confession of FAITH, which is CHRIST, who is WISDOM, PEACE, SALVATION, LOVE, HOPE, POWER, SANCTIFICATION and REDEMPTION, we will always be in torment.

WE NEED TO THINK ON THESE…

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

So, may the Lord teach us to take EVERY THOUGHT CAPTIVE… and teach us to discern our thoughts to know whether they be of the Lord or not… and let us BOLDLY WALK INTO THE GARDEN AGAIN… wiping all the sweat of worry and fear from our brow forever. Because a CHILD of the STRANGE WOMAN will never inherit the FATHERS HOUSE, YET a child of the KINGDOM DOES AND WILL!

If you continue to follow after lies, you will never inherit YOUR FATHER’S HOUSE (THE KINGDOM OF GOD where God exists – LOVE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND JOY)

Judges 11:2
And Gilead’s wife bare him sons; and his wife’s sons grew up, and they thrust out Jephthah, and said unto him, Thou shalt not inherit in our father’s house; for thou art the son of a strange woman.

There is hope for us. There is a rest for us all. We don’t need to continue on a path of worry and dread, because if we do our lives will never know the Kingdom OF God prepared for us all.

We are not God alone, as the strange woman states… but we can be EQUAL WITH GOD, ONE WITH GOD, when we LIVE TO LOVE and FOLLOW AFTER PEACE IN OUR HEARTS!

So test the Spirits (your thoughts) to see if they be of God or not? Test your thoughts to see if they bring you peace or anger and fear. Then begin to choose which thoughts to listen to and which to cast away. This will free you forever from the lure of the Strange Woman and you will know the abundant life waiting for us all.

Hope this blessed you all. Please do subscribe, share and tell the world… that THERE IS MORE!
Much love to you and yours, Jacob

WHAT IS TRUTH


“WHAT IS TRUTH?”

Who is God using today? Is God using people standing behind an alter, temple, mosque, kingdom hall, you get the point. Is God speaking to the world today from the Podium or High seat of your place of worship?

We hear so many messages and have so many differing ideas as to what the truth is, what God is, Allah, Brahmin, it really doesn’t matter what you call the creative force of us all. If the truth be told there is only one CREATOR. Only One, all things come from ONE. ONE large circle cannot create an equally large circle of it’s own size and dimension, but within that circle there are infinite possibilities. Just as the one CREATIVE FORCE of the universe, which I like to call God, or even Father, can only be ONE GOD but out of this ONE GOD ALL THINGS EXIST. The purpose of me pointing this out to you is to also state, that if there is ONE CREATOR than there is only ONE TRUTH about that creator. There is ONE CONSTANT that cannot be changed.

Malachi 3:6
For I am the LORD, I change not

This ONE GOD, as I said does not change, and there is nothing greater than this God.

Hebrews 6
13For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself

So since there is ONLY ONE GOD, ONE TRUTH, ONE IMMERSION into this truth, you would think there wouldn’t be so many divisions in belief. But there are, regardless of understanding there is only ONE. ONE GOD of which all of humanity is ONE BODY that came out from this ONE GOD.

Ephesians 4:4-6
4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Notice, how this ONE GOD is above all (nothing greater) through all and in all, meaning we simply exist IN THIS ONE SPIRIT. So why so many divisions? And where will the truth be found? Who should we listen to? Is a religious leader the way to go? Or is there another way?

Today because so many go to RELIGIOUS LEADERS, who let on that THEY ALONE have this ONE TRUTH we see countless divisions. In the name of God we see people hating each others, fighting each other, attacking each other, cheating each other, stealing from each other, the list goes on and on. The religious world is in an uproar. And for many that follow this religious leader they follow without question and believe themselves to be right as well. And if they have the power they will force what they believe to be right on everyone. This is why we have laws against same-sex marriage, drug use, etc, and many other laws that man has made not because these things hurt other people, and I am not endorsing drug use by any means, but many of these laws were created because a certain religion decided it was “immoral” and so the land begins to enforce what this certain religious group in power demands. In Muslim countries we see how women are treated, and there are still some in our country that say it is immoral for women to wear jeans, men to grow long hair etc. But the fact is, these are man’s interpretation and ideas of what is right and wrong. And when Mankind decides what is good and what is evil, it doesn’t create liberty, it creates bondage! The sad thing is, many will use force, condemn, will even kill so that what they BELIEVE to be true, isn’t threatened or disregarded. A war between faiths isn’t anything new. Mormons were slaughtered for simply being slaughtered. Pagans were slaughtered for being pagans. Free thinkers were tortured and slaughtered as heretic, Lutherans were burned at the stake in England, women were called witches and drowned and hung and burned to death for simply appearing different, perhaps for having a voice. Wars between the Muslim and Christian faith has been going on for centuries, and is still going on today. This has to end. We have to put aside our differences, and see our similarities, we are all ONE. When we see that what we do to one we do to ourselves then this world will know peace.

But since there are so many different faiths, and many roads don’t lead to the way, although I do believe many roads can lead you to the ONE ROAD which leads to the KINGDOM (rule of God). But since there are so many division, we must consider that EVERYONE CANNOT BE RIGHT.

And if this is true, which you don’t need to be a Rocket scientist to see many differing views don’t equal one view, so it’s a good call that many are deceived, then we are left with the question, “WHAT IS TRUTH?”.

Pontius Pilate was left with the same question. “WHAT IS TRUTH?” when the FATE OF CHRIST is given into his hands. The irony is the FATE OF CHRIST is also given into our hands. Religion wants the TRUTH put to death, because it threatens the kingdom religious men and women have created. If people leave the churches, temples, mosques, the religious leaders will not be able to live in the lap of luxury anymore. If people turned to the TRUTH and GOD instead of turning to Religious Men and Women, Religion would no longer be needed. And when the great TRUTH is spoken, the RELIGIOUS MINDED hate this truth because it is opposed to everything Religion teaches. It confounds the WISE (those who claim to know it all).

And so like Pilate we too are given a chance to decide the fate of the CHRIST (power and wisdom) of God. We desperately need to know what the TRUTH IS! But for many instead of listening to our hearts, as Pilate knew in his heart, Christ did NO WRONG.

Luke 23:4
Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man.

We too may hear the TRUTH, Love God, Love Others, and we find no fault in this. Simple, no tithing, no handing out flyers about the coming judgment, no infinite torture, everything has purpose, God is in control. We see all that Christ is, we FIND NO FAULT IN IT! But the RELIGIOUS do. They don’t want to lose their stranglehold over the world and their ignorant flocks. And these religious leaders will do EVERYTHING they can to not lose one of those, they made TWICE THE CHILD OF HELL (ignorance) they are.

Today from the pulpit we see many people attacking anyone who begins to speak differently. The latest victim of this is ROB BELL for his book LOVE WINS. Rob had a glimpse that perhaps God could in fact save everyone. Christ(the power and wisdom of God) was given into his hands, and when the Religious Rabble Rousers began to spew their hate and opposition, condemning Him and his book, did Rob Bell stand firm on his belief or did he cave? Sadly he caved, and gave a confession of faith saying “I believe in heaven and hell, and I believe God gives us a choice.” Rob washed his hands of CHRIST. In his heart, he KNOWS THERE IS NO FAULT in this GREAT TRUTH of SALVATION for all. But it was so new to him, and he is so young in this belief and so used to being the King of his large manmade kingdom, he doesn’t want to lose that. Once the people turned against him, he wanted to make it clear, HE BELIEVED IN HELL AND PEOPLE HAVE A CHOICE. We Rob Bell, I’m sorry to hear you say that because I see differently. Just do the research man, no such thing as infinite torture, Hell is simply our ignorance, our carnal death, the truth hidden from our view and so we suffer. And Heaven is finally entering into God’s PEACE, PURPOSE, WISDOM, AND POWER.

This is the problem with many so-called believers today. We want community, God wants unity. So instead of breaking away from what EVERYONE IS SAYING IS THE WAY, and seeking God to find the way yourself, many listen to what everyone else is saying. Because it isn’t convenient to speak against the status quo. So many, wash their hands, and allow the RELIGIOUS ELITE CONTINUE to scream and lead the way for the DEATH (putting away of) OF THE TRUTH, WAY, AND LIFE!

And instead of listening to the TRUTH WITHIN, we wash our hands of it, because SO MANY PEOPLE have so much against it.

Matthew 27:13
Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee

This is the parable of the sower. The seed is happily taken in, we find no fault with it, but then comes everyone else and since we are not properly prepared to face this adversity we fold our arms, and allow the TRUTH to be killed, and we no longer consider it. How many religious people, won’t even accept simple teaching when it is clearly defined and explained with irrefutable proof. It doesn’t matter, “look at all the people and how they are all against it.” – this is what matters, what others think. Religion has taught us to seek the approval of MANKIND and not GOD!

Many are blindly following, wanting acceptance and staying with the status quo. Many others don’t want to leave their wilderness of beliefs and end up going to their grave in this lifetime without ever entering the Land of Promise. The Land of Promise being the WISDOM AND POWER OF GOD, entering into salvation from your fear, condemnation, worry, doubt, and the demons of lies you’ve believed as true your whole life.

What I have learned over the years, many leading a congregation don’t want to hear what anyone without “credentials” has to say. As if going to O.R.U. or some other Christian University and getting your degree or doctorate in what man has decided should be taught and what should be forgot, makes you a greater vessels of truth than one who with a sincere heart turns to God and begs “TEACH ME THE TRUTH NO MATTER WHAT THE COST.” Which is ironic because they put their faith in a man who received no schooling at all.

John 7:15
15 The Jews there were amazed and asked, “How did this man get such learning without having been taught?”

So it should be clear, that we don’t need to LISTEN to someone who simply have a DEGREE in Religion to learn about God. We simply need to turn within and seek God. Those that seek will find.

Now here is something to consider. If you have left the manmade religious system and no longer go to a manmade church, it is a good call, you have also left the teachings of man and now are seeking God for answers. Perhaps you have been enlightened to more, and if you shared what you learned if it threatened what your “home” church taught you may have even been kicked out for it. I have a new friend who lost his job for seeing the TRUTH. Religion is a killer of spirits indeed.

Now of course not all churches, temples, mosques are bad. I know out there, THERE MUST BE sincere seekers. But if they are looking to one single man or woman to lead them, then they are not seeking God themselves.

You have to get to a point in your walk where you actually are disgusted by the beliefs that reared you. Your religious father, mother, brothers, sisters who taught you, molded you, formed you. If you don’t get to a point where you can no longer stomach them raising you, YOU will find the Truth and it will set you free.

Luke 14:26
If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple

Because regardless of a religious leaders intentions, if they are teaching others from the pulpit in a man-made church they haven’t ALLEGORICALLY left the PHYSICAL WORLD OF WORSHIP. God wants us to go to God, not a minister. God wants your voice to be heard, not the voice of someone who someone else has said “this person is approved to teach the things of God”.

Let me be real clear on this, we do not need MAN’S APPROVAL to speak or teach the things of God. God ALWAYS chooses the FOOLISH THINGS of this world to confound the wise…. In other words, those that consider themselves wise are confounded by the foolish things they believe, and cannot know the Truth when presented, because they can’t yet hear it. (I know that last verse has been taught differently, but people who God’s wisdom revealed to them are not foolish) – the foolish ones have no OIL (wisdom)

So who is approved of God? Who has the right to speak about the things of God? Who is to say who is right or wrong? NO ONE! No one is to say who is approved of God. We are to call NO MAN FATHER on this earth. So much for having a SPIRITUAL FATHER OR MOTHER in the Faith.

Wake up people, there is so much more to learn. You have the voice to spread what you learn. And you can ONLY TRULY LEARN alone with God. God said he wanted all of Israel to come to the MOUNTAIN (a HIGHER ALTITUDE of belief) and Israel didn’t want to go, because they knew to do that they would have to DIE to who they thought they were and who they have been. So they tell Moses, you go, and you tell us. And guess what, NOT ONE ENTERS the promise of God, the whole lot of them died in the wilderness.

YOU EACH NEED TO FORSAKE GOING TO A MAN OR A WOMAN for spiritual leadership, and simply ask God to teach you, then start searching. You will in that time, BE TRANSFORMED! Now let me be clear, I am not saying leave you church family, that would be me putting you under a law. God forbid, stay where you are welcome, but seek GOD, listen to what others say, but don’t drink the kool-aid without first checking to see with God if it is poison or not.

I am not a prophet, not a bishop, not a guru, not a priest, not a pastor, not a saint… I simply am who I am, and I am doing what I believe I am supposed to do. I am not a perfect man, many say I am humble and kind and charitable, they say that I am a good man, but I tell you I feel like I am chief of all sinners. Not because I do so much wrong, but because I can’t seem to ever feel that I have done enough right. I want to be a light in this world, I want to be a candle that is passed to other candles until millions of candles are burning bright in this world. This is my desire. And I pray it is yours.

The reason I wrote my book is because I believed I was meant to, to open the eyes of those who could not see before (my day-dream and desire if you will). I wanted to, in a fiction show the world that loving others is the only way, that everything that happens has purpose, and that we are all GOD’S ONLY BEGOTTEN SON (humanity).

Romans 12:5
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

With that being said, don’t look to me, or others in a higher light than you should. We are ONE AND THE SAME, sharing the same experience, learning the same things, but each of us in a different order.

The good news is NO ONE WILL PROCEED another. We are all in this together, for better, for worse, and then for a perfect universe. And this plan cannot fail, but the only way to find it is to find God within you. You have to enter that SHEEP GATE and become the SHEPHERD!

John 10
1Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 2But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

There is only one way in, THE DOOR, Christ, and CHRIST IS WITHIN YOU! And once you enter in YOU BECOME THE SHEPHERD. And you didn’t need a degree to do so, and become so.

You will NEVER find the truth if you aren’t willing to pray, Teach me the truth, take away every false beliefs no matter how much it costs, teach me the truth. I believe when people get to this point, it is because that is what God has already begun within them and their prayer is in fact a temporal witness of what is already being done within them.

I want for all of you, to have hope, don’t be discouraged because of what you have heard in religion or from religious leaders around the world. We are the LIGHTS OF THIS WORLD, and you will ONLY FIND THIS LIGHT SHINING BRIGHT when you LOOK WITHIN! Look within! CROSS THE JORDAN! Take us the CROSS! –

And now a message for all you religious leaders.

Philippians 3
4Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:

(If you think you have credentials, THINK AGAIN!)

5Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; 6Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

(You may think you are doing everything right, and are not at fault… THINK AGAIN!)

7But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

The things YOU THINK are benefitting you are actually KEEPING YOU FROM THE TRUTH of CHRIST. You can count all of those things, your “salvations”,”alter calls”,”miracle healing”,”falling out”,”prophetic words”,”dancing”, “singing”,”Praying”, “Traditions” — COUNT THEM ALL AS SOMETHING TO LOSE for the KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST (power and wisdom of God) – count it as waste that you may WIN (overcome) Christ. (The truth is in you not in a building)

10That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

So you may know him (the way, the truth, and the life) and the power of the way, truth, and life’s resurrection IN YOU and the suffering tha accompanies this, and the laying down of the life you once lived for the TRUE LIFE of who you really are!

11If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

So that YOU may also, ATTAIN the same RESURRECTION out of your DEATH (Ignorance) as Jesus did.

12Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

Not that you have already attained this, or have I in this life. But we follow after this life, if need be to apprehend this resurrection.

13Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

So forget everything you used to know. Reach forward to what you are now to know.

14I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Move beyond your traditions, religious buildings, and everything you thought you knew, and press on to the HIGH CALLING OF GOD, which is to become CHRIST. (his power and wisdom manifested)

20For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

Heaven is WITHIN, so where would the SAVIOR BE FOUND? Within, not without. Our conversation is within, our thoughts are the key, the truth will set us free. Even though we may feel like the chief of sinners.

21Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

Then we the Chief of Sinners, will no longer see our body (soul/being) as VILE, we will see it a glorious. Every fear and negative thought will be ripped away, we will feel secure, loved, and we will no longer need the approval of others, or be hurt by others, because all our thoughts will be God’s thoughts.

So who is God using today? Is it you? Is it me? Does it really matter who? I believe not. For God uses us all in different ways. Some like Pharoah whom he hardens to test and push Israel out of bondage, and some like Joseph who soon rule Egypt and store up enough grain (understanding) to feed the world. We are all part of the same plan, so we must LOVE ONE ANOTHER. Turn to God to learn about God, don’t have any gods before God within. Not a religious book, religious leader, not a philosophy, not anything. Let your conversation be in HEAVEN and HEAVEN will be in your EARTH (HEART).

DO THIS OR ELSE? HAVE I DONE WRONG?

DO THIS OR ELSE? HAVE I DONE WRONG?

On my last trip while traveling I like to do some reading, and almost every time things will jump out at me that never did before. I end up having one of those moments, where I think, “Wow, what a dummy I was to not see this before.” Of course, that’s the wrong attitude to have because we can only learn what we learn when we are meant to learn it.

Habakkuk 2:3
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

There is a time for everything. Not everyone will be where you are, and you won’t be where others are, we are all in the process of coming to the knowledge of the truth, and each person according to their order. Which is why, we shouldn’t worry if people we speak to don’t hear what we hear or agree with what we say. It is not our job to prove anyone wrong and prove ourselves right. Despite what the religious mind has taught us over the years, we don’t need to fight for or defend the truth, the TRUTH stands on its own without our help. In fact, it’s vanity to think that we can lead anyone to Christ. All any of us can do is bear witness of the good news, we can plant, others can water, but it is God that gives the increase. So for all those religious leaders out there that brag about how many salvations, alter calls, and how many people they led to Christ they are really only fooling themselves and those that believe them. For NO ON can come to the knowledge of the truth UNLESS THEY ARE MEANT TO!

John 6:44
No man can come unto me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

It is always the Creator that creates, we are the clay, the Potter has power over the clay to make it as it pleases. In fact, this is great news. This is why we must not worry about others who may not believe what we believe, or see what we see. We must not get upset when we are attacked, persecuted, tempted, and accused for being who God has made us to be, for truly they know no better. In addition, their torment (testing) of us is always for our good.

Ephesians 4
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 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:

There it is again, Till we ALL come to the unity of the Faith and Knowledge of the Son of God (in us/as us), unto the perfect man (whom we are and become), and to the fulness of Christ (power and wisdom of God). We need not worry about defending out faith, we need not worry about leaving any behind in knowledge because they cannot hear unless God has opened their ears to hear, they cannot see unless God has opened their eyes to see. So it is a fruitless and vain endeavour to try to convert anyone. Something to consider is, if you still believe you MUST do this then you still have much to learn yourself. We are not meant to force anyone to believe what we know to be true, we are meant to share the Gospel (good news of who humanity is, how not one will be lost, how God is in control, how everyone has purpose, how our trials and hard times pave the way for greater days, how our life and everything that has happened to us was meant for us, how forgiveness, compassion, and love is the key to the kingdom of God.)

I know this may come as a shock, to say, it’s not our job to convince anyone of anything. But it is nevertheless true. And what a relief it is to know this. We are simply meant to be LIVING EPISTLES for all of mankind to read, we are to be LIGHTS in this world. Our words and reciting of scripture is not what saves anyone, God saves, and he does this by letting his LIGHT shine through us.

Acts 13:47
For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.

We are meant to be LIGHTS in this world, living examples of God’s mercy, love, and forgiveness. A tall order, one we all fall short on I understand that all to well. But we move on to what is ahead, never looking back on the failures of yesterday or what we believe to be our shortcomings. So if you lose your temper, or you tell a fib, or you eat one too many pieces of cake 🙂 don’t beat yourself up. In fact, you would be surprised to know that sometimes God will provoke you to do what you believe God does not want you to do, so His Will is done in another. Yes, God can harden our hearts and provoke us to do anything God wills, and when you understand this, it becomes easier to live your life. In fact, it is impossible to do anything outside of God’s will. It’s written nothing can thwart God’s plan and will. You see, it is impossible for us to know what God is doing in our lives, what God has done in our lives, so worrying about what we consider our past mistakes, or dwelling in the “should have, could have, would of’s” is in direct opposition to the very heart and will of God. Because his ways are past our finding out.

Isaiah 55
8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

We all struggle and suffer with some of the choices we have made. We all have replayed things in our minds, asking for forgiveness for things we have said or done. But we MUST understand that if that wasn’t part of God’s plan for our life, IT WOULDN’T HAVE HAPPENED. All of these actions are there for our learning, and for the benefit of others. I know that sounds radically different. And by no means am I saying, we can go buck wild and live anyway we want, GOD FORBID! I would never want anyone to take that away from what I am saying. What I am saying is there is no profit in dwelling in our past. We must put our past behind us, as I have written in the past, the accused of the brethren, the DEVIL spelled backwards is LIVED. What you have LIVED is not LIVING, is is death. It is dwelling in Death. We must move onto the promise of tomorrow, and live for the moment. We can’t get stuck on the things we do in life and constantly question if it was right or wrong, for only God knows, if we feel bad and you need to acknowledge it, than do that and move on. You don’t need to repent of something more than once.

Worry and Doubt are strangling the very life out of us all. It is this worry that people so vigorously fight to get people to believe what they believe. Because if everyone agrees with them, then they feel better about their own personal beliefs. I hope you can see the vanity in this and how this line of thinking has nothing to do with God. Sure we are to share the Gospel, but if it isn’t received, or if it is questioned and attacked we aren’t commanded to stay around and defend it. True love doesn’t need to prove itself. It needs to simply accept people are where they are at, and be patient, long-suffering, meek, gentle, and not seeking to strive or fight or debate.

Matthew 10
13And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

Those that will hear the truth, will receive the peace that you have in your faith, but if they will not hear then keep your peace, don’t let it bring you down and don’t stick around trying to prove them wrong. Simply shake the Dust (hurt, lies, idolatry that was put on you while trying to share), shake that dust from your feet (your walk/journey in Christ). So much for sticking around for a back and forth sword/words fight about what the bible really means and says.

But as I stated earlier, we all allow worry and doubt to kill our spirit. We constantly worry, “did I make the right decision”,”should I have said this or that”,”why did I do that, now I made things worse”,”should I have left that job”,”should I have stood up for myself”, “should I have sold my house”…. the list goes on and on. We worry about everything. We second, third, fourth, and fifth guess almost everything we do, NEVER ONCE considering that God wouldn’t have allowed us to do this or that, unless it was meant to be.

We have been sold this lie, that is we are suffering we have done something wrong. We have been sold a lie that if we do everything right life will be perfect for us. But that wasn’t the case for any of God’s chosen vessels, and it isn’t the case for any of us.

2 Corinthians 2:4
For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears

We will have trials, we will have anguish, we will cry, and yes we will have doubts and fears. Which is why we MUST REMEMBER that even if a decision we have made brings sorrow to our heart, that we should rejoice instead trusting that God is big enough to work all things together for the good, and that if God didn’t want you to say or do what you did, he wouldn’t have had you make the decision you made.

Let me give you a great example of how I believed I had sinned greatly against God, but years later realized God had provoked me to do what I did to get me to where I am now. Years ago I have a very large fight with a family member that I was allowing to stay at our home. I ended up screaming and yelling, I kicked her out of the house (she had many others homes of her own to stay at anyway). This caused a greater rift in my relationship with my wife’s family than was already there. The fallout would only get worse. I would be attacked, I would attack back, and all of it was so very foolish. And even though in the natural I could have said I was completely in the right, and even though my wife would tell me this, in my heart I had done wrong. I cursed, I yelled, I screamed, I thought bad about her in my heart, and I SUFFERED TERRIBLY BECAUSE OF IT! I asked God multiple times to forgive me for kicking her out. But today, that was the catalyst for the next two years of our lives. Because of that fight we would sell our house, and end up moving into my wife’s dream home. A larger home for less money. With an apartment that our family members in need are now sharing, and yes even enough room to create a room for my Mother in law, who gets along with me now famously.

The point is, what seemed to be a work of wickedness and pride was actually a necessity, because without it we would have never sold our home, and moved here. And now, we have three family members in need living here and helping us with out needs. God was working through it all. I realized that God does inspire us to act the way we must to motivate us to go where God needs us to be. God will use our suffering and fear to move us from place to place. And when we understand this, we can finally REST! Knowing that no matter what we have done, or do, regardless of the cost we may have to pay because YES WE DO REAP WHAT WE SOW, but even in reaping what we have sown God opens our eyes, heals our hearts and moves us to the place we need to be.

Micah 4
9Now why dost thou cry out aloud? is there no king in thee? is thy counsellor perished? for pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail. 10Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies.

We need to know that God is in control of our lives, every aspect of our lives. We need to know that we will make decisions, or do and say things that we may question and believe to be wrong, but in so doing we MUST KNOW that even though we may cry and scream God is within us, working all things for us, and we will be delivered from our ENEMIES!

Enemies, by the way, are not people coming against us. Our enemies are our negative thoughts, the lies we have believed, our fears, our hatred, our bias. When people literally seem like our enemies and are doing things to truly hurt us, the TRUE ENEMY is our negative feelings toward these people. Regardless of what anyone does to us, the real enemies are the carnal thoughts within us. Our enemies are found in our own house (temple/our soul).

Luke 12
53The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

In the natural sure we may have problems with family members, but this scripture is not speaking of that. It is speaking of what gives birth to our thoughts. Christ came to bring division, to divide the lies we have believed and been taught from the truth of God. And this is the separation that is written about in Genesis.

Genesis 2:24
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

The wife we cleave unto is WISDOM! Wisdom which is a tree of life. We will leave our old beliefs that gave birth to who we think we are, and we shall become ONE with the WISDOM AND TRUTH OF GOD.

Proverbs 3
13 Happy is the man that findeth WISDOM, and the man that getteth understanding.
14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.
15 SHE is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.
16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
18 SHE is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

Mark 10
11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

Is this speaking of literal marriage, sure why not. I pray all marriages will be blessed. But since God doesn’t look to the outward man, but the inward man, TRULY what is being taught here is an allegory. HE WHO PUTS AWAY THE WISDOM/UNDERSTANDING AND TRUTH OF GOD for OTHER BELIEFS commits adultery. This is the adultery God is speaking of in the Ten Commandments. And yes, of course you SHOULDN’T CHEAT ON YOUR SPOUSE, because if you do one day you will feel the same betrayal.

And the BELIEFS that make us worry, fear, and doubt. The BELIEFS that make us believe we have to prove everyone wrong and convince everyone what we believe, is actually MARRYING ANOTHER. Everytime we allow our worries and doubts and fears to take over our thoughts, we are leaving the TRUTH OF GOD for an adulterous relationship. In fact, we BECOME ONE with these false beliefs by leaving the truth of God. The good news is, God will even use the torment this caused to put us back on the right track. But how much better would be to cast away every thought of fear because you know….

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

So if God doesn’t give us thoughts of fear, then our fear isn’t coming from God now is it? So we need to learn how to take these thoughts captive and accept things that have happened in our lives, accept things that we have or have not done and just know God is in the middle of it all, and will work all things after the COUNSEL OF GOD’S WILL. Which means, WE CAN’T FAIL! EVER!

Ephesians 1
5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will

We are pre-destined, pre-programmed, no we are not robots but we are led and drawn, and yes we make decisions and have consequences for our actions but all of this is in accordance to what God has purposed for us. Which is why it is time to stop debating, looking down on others for their beliefs, thinking we know more or are somehow more blessed, as well as stop worrying, doubting, and repenting again and again of what we have done. It is time to walk into the promise of tomorrow’s light, it is time to lay our cares upon Christ… Meaning it is time to let go of our worries and fears and beliefs and just rest in the power and wisdom of God.

There is a great burden to carry when you believe you are the one at the helm. There is a light burden to carry when you know it is God directing your steps.

You can choose this…

Proverbs 14:12
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death

Or this…

Psalm 37:23
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.

So trust in God. Let the truth stand for itself. Stop worrying about whether you have done right or wrong and simply seek the Lord in every way. The road won’t always be easy, you may question whether what you have done was God’s will or not, His ways are above ours, understand that and also understand that if God didn’t want whatever it is you are going through in your life, you wouldn’t be going through it. But above all else, know that he who endures until the end OVERCOMES, and every one of you are overcomers and will overcome because you have all been predestined to do so!
