MIND REALITY THOUGHTS

FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPE FOR:

Faith is the beginning of the triumphant life, but knowledge is its consummation. Faith reveals the way, but knowledge is the goal. Faith suffers many afflictions; knowledge has transcended affliction. Faith endures; knowledge loves. Faith walks in darkness, but believes; knowledge acts in light, and knows. Faith inspires to affect; knowledge crowns effort with success. Faith is the substance of things hoped for; knowledge is the substance of things processed. Faith is the helpful staff of the Pilgrim; knowledge is the city of refugee at his journeys end. Without faith there will be no knowledge, but when knowledge is acquired, the work of faith is finished.

FINDING GOD’S WORDS THAT ARE HIDDEN DEEP IN OUR SPIRIT

FINDING GOD’S WORDS THAT ARE HIDDEN DEEP IN OUR SPIRIT

BY SHIRLEY RHODES

Understanding law and grace then applying it to our lives will encourage our hearts as God lives and breathes his spirit in and through our mortal bodies created for that purpose.  When God redeemed mankind they had wandered from his original purpose; however, through love and compassion for his creation, he prepared a body and sent his Son to redeem mankind back to himself.  This act of Love walked, breathed and talked as we do, his journey was one spirit filled.

He created a pattern for sharing all that God had given him by using parables as tools for understanding to everyone.  We choose to follow after Jesus by keeping God’s Words Hidden Deep in Our Spirit; God’s Words hidden deep in our hearts makes us one in him.

Life (animation, salvation) is a gift to be cherished, Jesus says, “I am the light of the world; he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life (John 8:12). God’s Word Hidden Deep in Our  Spirit  is a light that beckons our weary hearts to look up, be strong, stead-fast, unmovable always abiding in the Lord for he cares for us.

Teach me Lord the way (Psalm 119:33), grant me understanding (34), my soul melt for discouragement: strengthen me according to your word (28).  Your hands made and fashioned me; give me understanding (73), that I might be aware of all your ways.

God encourages each of us to diligently be studious of his Word thereby gaining knowledge, wisdom and understanding for living. The Psalms are filled with words of encouragement, praise and prayer. With teachings such as these, God’s Words are Hidden Deep in Our Spirit, our hearts are encouraged in all things that pertain to life.

Now let us understand and seek out the meaning to these words that are found in the book of

1631 Book of Psalms

Psalms:

Fret not (1)

Trust in the Lord, you shall be fed (3)

Delight in the Lord; He will give you the desires of your heart (4)

Commit your way to the Lord; he shall bring it to pass (5)

Rest in the Lord; wait patiently for him (6)

Cease from anger; do no evil (7)

Wait on the Lord and keep his way (34)

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord; and he delights in his ways (23) Psalm: 37: 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 23, 34

So when life seems to be swirling about, and you feel broken and confused; lift your head up, pull your shoulders back stand tall and smile. With an eye on the prize, and that prize is Jesus, we can say to ourselves with God’s Word Hidden Deep in Our Spirit:

“This I know, he favors’ me, because my enemies do not triumph over me” (41: 11) and keep moving towards your destination while living out the purpose for which you have been created.

 

 

HOW GREAT IS THE MAN THAT CAN MANIFEST ENERGY AND POWER THROUGH KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM

HOW GREAT IS THE MAN THAT CAN MANIFEST ENERGY AND POWER THROUGH KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM

The Cosmos of Space and Time

When God created man, he did so for his own purpose.  He created man in his own image and likeness.  Then he endowed him with his own character and he manifested him in such a way that man may become a part of the energy and power source that makes this world continue to grow and expand itself in the great cosmos.  He fully equipped man with an imagination that man could develop all the knowledge, power and wisdom he would need to propel him to be a king in the Cosmos.

The entire Universe is nothing more than energy, and everything that is in the Universe is a part of that energy source.  That energy source is never standing still; it is always in motion and expanding!  Never tiring, inexhaustible, and apparently eternal in its operation, it moves in the atoms and in the stars, always informing the fleeting shapes of time with its restless, glowing, and pulsating power.

Man is a portion of this creative energy, and in him it manifests, through a combination of mental faculties, as affection, passion, intelligence, morality, reason, understanding, and wisdom.  He is not merely a blind conductor of energy, but he consciously uses, controls, and directs it.  Slowly, but with certainty, is he gaining control of the forces without, and is making them do him obedient service; and just as surely will he gain control of the forces within—the subtle energies of thought and direct them into channels of harmony and happiness.

Man’s true place in the Cosmos is that of a King, not a slave, a commander under the Law of Good, and not a helpless tool in the reign of Evil.  His own body and mind are the dual dominion over which he is to reign, a Lord of Truth, the master of himself, the wise user and controller of his store of pure, eternal, creative energy.  Let him walk the earth unashamed, strong, valiant, tender, and benign; no longer prostrate in self-abasement, but walking erect in the dignity of perfect manhood; not groveling in selfishness and remorse, and crying for pardon and mercy, but standing firm and free in the sublime majesty of a sinless life.

Long has man regarded himself as vile, and weak, and unworthy, and has been content to remain so; but in the new era which has just now burst upon the world, he is to make the glorious discovery that he is pure, and powerful, and noble when he rises up and wills; and the rising up is not against any outward enemy; not against neighbor, nor governments, nor laws, nor spirits, nor principalities, nor powers, but against the ignorance, folly, and misery which beset him in the dominion of his own mind.  For it is only by ignorance and folly that man is slavish; by knowledge and wisdom his kingship is restored.

Now I conclude with this final thought; let them who will, preach men weakness and helplessness, but I will teach his strength and power.  I write for men, not for babes; for those who are eager to learn, and earnest to achieve; for those who will put away (for the world’s good) a petty personal indulgence, a selfish desire, a mean thought, and live on as though it were not, sans craving and regret.  The Truth is not for the frivolous and the thoughtless; the Life Triumphant is not for triflers and loiterers.  The Bibles teaches us this one valuable lesson; when we come into the full knowledge of the truth of all things and know the truth, the truth will free us from the prison that has kept all things hidden from our minds.

Now may you be blessed with much ENERGY and POWER to comprehend the truth in this message, and then allow it to manifest itself into reality, and then you will know just “HOW GREAT IS THE MAN THAT CAN MANIFEST ENERGY AND POWER THROUGH KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM!”   We bless this message to you this day in the name of Jesus, who said that if I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me.  AMEN!

OBTAINING A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD LEADS TO SELF CONTROL

OBTAINING A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD LEADS TO SELF CONTROL

God‘s Marvelous Light Show us the way to SELF-CONTROL (Photo by Pastor Davis) Studying God’s word allows us to obtain knowledge of who God is, who we are and who we are in God.  

The Bible commands us to study to show ourselves approved; when we do this we reflect a wiliness to be obedient to God, thereby placing ourselves in a position in knowing that, “OBTAINING A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD LEADS TO SELF CONTROL!”

Studying God’s word allows us to obtain knowledge of who God is, who we are and who we are in God.  When we are able to gain such critical knowledge, and then begin to act on that knowledge, it leads us steady to having SELF-CONTROL over every aspect of our daily lives.

SELF CONTROL is one of the fruits of the Spirit; SELF-CONTROL refers to mastery over sinful human desires in every aspect of our life.  The Greeks considered this a highly prized virtue. Their focus, of course, was entirely on self-effort, but the problem was that self-effort always fails in the long run because it may control the body but does not affect inward desires.

Therefore, the WORD OF GOD speaks to us and says, “For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.” (2 Peter 1:5-7 ESV)

The quality of SELF-CONTROL must then lead to patient endurance, the ability to steadfastly endure suffering or evil without giving up one’s faith.  Endurance is not a stoic indifference to whatever fate allows; rather, it springs from faith in God’s goodness and control over all that happens in believer’s lives.

Such endurance leads to godliness,  this is another word that is unusual to the New Testament, but common to Greek ethics lists of that day, we see that Paul emphasized godliness in the Pastoral Epistles as being the virtue that should characterize the life and conduct of the believers.  Godliness was the primary word for “religion” and referred to a person’s correct attitudes toward God and people, usually referring to performing obligatory duties.  Here we discover in 1st Peter the word describes an awareness of God in all of life – a lifestyle that exemplifies Christ and is empowered by him (the same word is used in (1st Peter 1:3).

We as Christians and believers must have a right relationship with God and right relationships with fellow believers.  The false teachers claimed such “godliness,” but were sadly lacking in reverence toward God and in good attitudes toward others.  For all believers, it is a requirement that if we want to obtain SELF-CONTROL over all aspects of our lives, we must work hard to prove that we really are among those God has called and chosen to reflect His teachings and training to overcome SELF.  Pause your thoughts and reading for a few minutes and watch this short video clip teaching on SELF-CONTROL.

Now listen to how Paul describes to us how he trained to gain SELF-CONTROL over his physical body.  He says, “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.”  (1 Corinthians (9:24-27 ESV).

In closing, I tell you that every believer should be putting out the kind of effort for the reward of God’s Kingdom that an athlete puts out to merely win a wreath.  In order to do so, it requires you to develop SELF-CONTROL and practice SELF-CONTROL daily.

Now let us learn the lesson of SELF-CONTROL that Paul teaches us in this Scripture, because he practiced what he preached.  He had to live by the gospel and therefore he practiced self-denial like the athletes just described in this Scripture.  Paul did not run the race aimlessly, nor was he like a boxer who misses his punches.  Instead, he kept his eyes focused on the goal, running straight for it, with purpose in every step.  He did not allow himself to be sidetracked and he did not waste time becoming lazy.  He kept on, disciplining and training his body.

Paul pictured life as a battle.  We as Believers must not become lazy for Satan seeks to cause us to stumble, sin continues to buffet, and sorrow and pain are a daily reality.  Instead of being bound by our bodies, we as believers must diligently discipline ourselves in our Christians lives in order to stay “in shape.”  When we truly learn to do this, we will be in the process of learning the truth and that is, “OBTAINING A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD LEADS TO SELF CONTROL!”

FAITH AND REASON ARE ONE OF THE SAME

REASON CAN COMMAND AN ENTIRE ARMY TO WAR OR IT CAN COMPEL ALL NATIONS TO PEACE AND HARMONY.

The Burning Bush (Photo by Pastor Davis)

God has created all things perfectly by His own reasoning and in His own time.  Therefore, who are we to question what is, is?  God commands us to remove all doubt from our minds and understand the things of the universe, and then perhaps we can develop the wisdom and knowledge to discern why the reality of God’s reasoning is what it is. Now listen to what the Bible tells us to do, it says, “Get skillful and godly wisdom, get understanding (discernment, comprehension, and interpretation); do not forget and do not turn back from the words of my mouth.” (Proverbs 4:4-6 AMP)

Now understand that Faith comes by hearing which means perception, and perception by the Word of God. The Word is Logos, which means Reason. Reason or awareness directs your perception and determines your knowing.

To know as much of the Word of God is to know as much reason as possible. All wisdom, understanding and knowledge are for you to be convinced about the truth because you are aware of all the reasons that define it. To have absolute faith is to be totally convinced about the truth.

Reason or logic is what runs the entire universe. You need as much reasons as possible to do well.  Reason is what causes others to act and it determines how they act. The programming logic runs the program. If you want to move yourself or others to take a certain action, give as much reason as possible whether logical or emotional, conscious or subtle to persuade, direct and motivate them. Reason can command an entire army to war or it can compel all nations to peace and harmony.

God himself has perfect reasoning and total understanding of all there is. When we are lacking awareness about something but are clearly guided by him in a certain area, that is when we should trust in God with all our heart and not lean towards our limited understanding. God’s reason is the higher reasoning compared to ours. To reason against reason is treason. However, God still wants us to grow in awareness and understanding so that we may reach his level of reasoning and be of one mind with him.

Now I encourage you to Incline your ear unto understanding. Seek to know the reason of a thing. Seek to know all the reasons there are to know about it. Open your heart to be understanding so that you may receive the truth of a matter and not block it out of perception. You need understanding in order to do what is right.

Understanding gives us strength because it makes us bigger than our situations. Knowing all the explanations and reasons of a thing allows you to see it in a definite way. Faith is having certainty.

Some of us have the idea that faith and reasoning are in conflict with each other. They think that if you have reason, you do not need faith, and if you go by faith, you cannot go by reasoning. This paradox has caused the biggest problems in all religion and spirituality. The truth is that faith and reason are the same. In order to have faith about something, you need to know it as true. You cannot know something as true unless you have a reason for it to be so. Faith is reason and reason is faith.

Now in closing, I encourage you to know the truth, and the truth will set you FREE. (John 8:32)  Think globally and work locally allowing your mind to be filled with the truth of God’s word.  May the grace of God rest and abide in you now and forever, in Jesus name, I remain your brother, Pastor Davis/Master Teacher!

 

SEEK THE SWEET AROMAS OF WISDOM AND DISCOVER THE BEAUTY OF HER SOUL (PART THREE).

THE BEAUTY OF THE YELLOW ROSE by Pastor Davis

WHAT IF YOU CALLED OUT TO LADY WISDOM AND SHE COULD NOT BE FOUND?

Have you ever been in a situation where you were always giving and the other person was always taking?  Have you tried to please a person and for whatever reason they never seem to be satisfied with what you were doing?  Have you ever tried to provide council to a person and they just laugh, and joked at your knowledge?  You say, this is foolish, why am I wasting my time with such a person?  Knowledge say it is because you are wise and Lady Wisdom lives within you.

Know this as truth, LADY WISDOM cries out to the simple, the scorners, and fools.  The simple are naïve, impressionable people who are open to all kinds of influences, both good and bad; here their instability seems to be leading them in the wrong direction.  Scorners are those who treat wise counsel with contempt; nothing is sacred or serious to them.  Fools are those who senselessly refuse instruction; they are conceited and opinionated in their ignorance.  My Mother would say, they are people who have a hard head and will never understand the wisdom of God, so why bother with them.

I try to find reasoning in My Mother’s words, because I convinced myself that at some point LADY WISDOM will surely show up and they will discover the truth in the power of LADY WISDOM.   Therefore, I such through the scriptures and this is what I found.

Now I encourage you to pay close attention to the words of LADY WISDOM as she speaks truth to power for your edification.  This is what LADY WISDOM had to say, Simpletons! How long will you wallow in ignorance?

Cynics! How long will you feed your cynicism?

Idiots! How long will you refuse to learn?

About face! I can revise your life.  Look, I’m ready to pour out my spirit on you; I’m ready to tell you all I know.  As it is, I’ve called, but you’ve turned a deaf ear; I’ve reached out to you, but you’ve ignored me.

“Since you laugh at my counsel and make a joke of my advice, how can I take you seriously?
I will turn the tables and joke about your troubles!  What if the roof falls in, and your whole life goes to pieces.  What if catastrophe strikes and there’s nothing to show for your life but rubble and ashes? You will need me then. You will call for me, but do not expect an answer.  No matter how hard you look, you will not find me.

“Because you hated Knowledge and had nothing to do with the Fear-of-God, Because you wouldn’t take my advice and brushed aside all my offers to train you, Well, you’ve made your bed—now lie in it; you wanted your own way—now, how do you like it?  Don’t you see what happens, you simpletons, you idiots?  Carelessness kills; complacency is murder. First pay attention to me, and then relax.  Now you can take it easy—you’re in good hands.”  (Proverbs 1:22-33 MSG)

One of the greatest tragedies of life is the crass rejection of Wisdom’s gracious entreaties.  It called forth the lament of lost opportunity from the summit of Oliver, “I would but you would not.”

Wisdom sorrows over people who brush aside all her wise counsel and who will have nothing to do with her constructive criticism.  Now I ask you, what makes people stubborn refusal so irrational?  I have pondered this question in my mind for quite some time.  Therefore, I tell you this truth, God’s commandments and warning is for our own good, not for God’.  Here is one thing that we should know, and that is if we as a people continue to persist in our refusal to listen to LADY WISDOM, that rejection will inevitably bring disaster and ruin.  Then it will be Wisdom’s turn to laugh.  “I also will laugh at your calamity, not because it is funny, but because of your continual refusal to observe the wise counsel LADY WISDOM has continue to offer you.

Now let me leave you with this final thought from the book of Psalms 27:14 KJV, it says, “ Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.  I say if you will do this and allow him to speak to your heart, I guarantee you LADY WISDOM will show up and you will be totally amazed.  Today, I minister to you from a position of peace, purpose, power and prosperity.  I remain your brother in Christ, Pastor Davis/Master Teacher.

I encourage you to think globally and work locally as you SEEK THE SWEET AROMAS OF WISDOM AND DISCOVER THE BEAUTY OF HER SOUL.

 

 

SATAN HAS MOVED HIS BATTLEFIELD INTO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD

 SATAN HAS MOVED HIS BATTLEFIELD INTO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD

Ephesians 6:11-18

 Have you ever stopped to observe what was around you?  For most of us we are so busy trying to earn a living to support our families and life style, it makes it very hard for us to see the forest because we are always looking straight ahead into the trees.  Nevertheless, if we ever took the time to observe what was around us, we would then realize that the battlefield is wherever we are.  It does not matter if we are at our homes, school, job, library, concert hall or church, the battlefield will always be where we are.  Satan is and will always be an enemy of God.  His job is to recruit, recruit and recruit, and believe me; he does his job very well.  Satan does not discriminate on the basics of race, creed, color or national origin.  He is out to destroy God’s kingdom, and that means anyone who is a believer of God is a target of Satan.

Therefore, when we understand our purpose and mission in life, we then know that the enemy we are fighting is a very smart, cunning and a elusive devil.  His territory is very large and continues to expand every day.  So finding the battlefield for us should not be very hard as long as we are committed to staying the course and following in the footsteps of our Lord Jesus Christ.  The battlefield for us will always be close by.  Our neighborhoods are filled with gangs, drugs, prostitution and all sorts of petty crimes.  In some major cities, people are prisons in their own homes.  They have still bars on their windows and doors.  Their homes are like a fort.  In order for them to enter in or come out, they have to struggle to unlock the bars they are locked behind.  Some people have even died in their homes from fires because they could not get out from behind the steel bars they had locked themselves behind.

Our school from all over the country, which is located in almost every neighborhood in America, has become one of the most potent battlefields in America today.  Each day more than 250,000 kids carry some type of weapon into our schools to either defend themselves or threaten someone else with them in order to show how big and bad they themselves really are.  Kids are shooting and killing other kids because the evil that the old devil has been able to penetrate into our perimeter around the battlefield we have established for ourselves.  When we stop and consider for a moment that our children are our futures, we cannot but to conclude that the enemy has brought the fight to us.

Even on our jobs, we have to worry about offending anyone, because so many people are stressed out, worrying about not making enough money to support their families. Whether or not they are going to lose their job because of out sourcing, whether or not a family member will become ill and they not have the proper medical insurance to meet their needs.  These are just a few of the many problems that we face in the work place that make people fill unstable and freak out and the next thing you know people are running to seek shelter because someone has lost it all and feel that they have to take revenge on anyone that happens to be in their way.  They come into the work place fully armed and just start to shooting at anyone that gets in their way.

It has now become harder to drive down the highway because someone feels they just do not like you, or they feel you just got in their way and you are holding them up from getting to where they are going.  Just a few months ago down in Atlanta, Ga., a driver in a small car for whatever reason got angry with a eighteen wheeler and decided to take his road rage out on the driver.  He took his gun out and shot into the sleeper of the driver’s eighteen-wheeler.  The bullet missed the driver, but hit the driver’s three-year-old son that was sleeping in the bunk at the time, killing the baby.

This to me is unacceptable in the 21st century. We must not continue to allow evil to dedicate our destiny.  We have a King that roars like a might lion who is our protector.  He does not know or accept defeat.  We must believe that we as a chosen disciple of the one living God has been given the power to change the course of our destiny by changing the way we view the people that are committing the evil crimes within our communities.  We should never forget that evil survives because we choose to let it rule over us.  We must resist it on every hand, using the power that God gives us, and believe me, we do have the power to stand up and take the fight to the enemy.  God has given us that power if we choose to use it.  All we have to do is call on him.  He said that he would never leave us or forsake us.  He will always be right there with us even until the end of time.

Standing up to the enemy may not be the way you would view your mission in this world, but if you don’t, who will?  Sometimes we have to just say no to the enemy, and do what is unpopular at the time even if our life depends on it.  If we stand up for Christ we are most certain to lose our life, but what are we living for any way.  This world is not our home; we are just passing through on our way to our eternal home.  We must be prepared to face the enemy with all our strength and might.  Then and only then will the enemy have a sense of who we are.  The enemy will always feel that he is the biggest and baldest bully in town as long as we allow him to back us down.  There comes a time in our lives when we must say no backing away or running away from a situation that I can no longer tolerate.  This enemy is threaten my family, my community, my way of life, and if I don’t do something about it right now, I will no longer have a family or community to live in, because he is taken it all away.  It is up to me to end this right here and now.

It is time to take the battle to the enemy…

As we have discovered, Satan is a very potent enemy.  His aim is to destroy our communities, our schools, our families, our churches and ultimately, God’s kingdom.  We have a choice in whether or not Satan gets his way.  We can through our hands up and walk away from everything we have work so hard to build, or we can take it to God and ask Him for help in defeating the old devil himself.  It is either our way or God’s way.  One thing we know for certain, our way is headed for failure.  However, if we take it to God and leave it in his hands, He will show us just how to take the battle to Satan and win.

Now listen to what Paul tells us about how to protect ourselves as we prepare to take the fight to the enemy.  Paul says, “Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly reams.  Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.  (Ephesians 6:11-18)

HOW WE LIVE IN BOTH THE SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL WORLD SIMULTANEOUSLY

"The Blue Marble" is a famous photog...

Image via Wikipedia

How we live in both the Spiritual and Physical World simultaneously

We have become more and more aware that we are part of a spirit world that is present around us.  We also understand that we are more than just this physical presence we have, but that we are composed of a spirit, a soul and a body;  in essence a triune being.

Because we are spirit, we have our existence both here in the physical, but as well, we have our existence based in a spirit world that we have become more acutely aware of.  We are, in essence, energetic beings, existing in both a spiritual and natural world, simultaneously.

Translated in English, what does it mean?  It means that we co-exist in 3 worlds simultaneously, and as we have become more and more conscious of that existence, we are more and more aware of our abiding and our interaction within that realm.

Imagine with me if you will a vast ocean.  Moreover, there you stand, immersed in this vast ocean, at one with it.  You sense it, you feel it, and it flows through you.  This ocean is the world of spirit that you have your existence in.  You are a part of it, and every aspect of this ocean affects you and is a part of you.  We live in this world of spirit, 24/7, but most have no awareness of this reality.  Never the less, this ocean, this world of spirit, is reality, and affects all things.  You may think you are a physical being, but you are more spirit than you have ever realized.

Living in this world is analogous to experiencing on-the-job training. We come here to attain growth as a soul (an individualized aspect of spirit). As a spirit, we are already perfectly one with God. But with every human body and life we experienced on Earth over the millennia, we create a different soul body to be the vehicle for our spirit as it experiences the world in the vehicle of a human body. At the physical level, our body is conscious. At the soul level, our mind is subconscious. At the spirit level, we are super conscious. We are multi-dimensional and exist in three different worlds at the same time. There are many abodes and many dimensions. We are working our way back up “Jacob’s ladder” of success toward the goal of perfected individuality as a soul to go along with our already perfect Wholeness as a spirit. We are evolving into an individualized version of the Whole which is “God” consciousness.

As a human being, we seem like such a small creation in an infinite universe, but this is only an illusion. As individuals, we are the human and soul part of God. We are extensions of thought in the Mind of God (the collective Whole). We are bringing this higher universal consciousness into this tiny world called Earth while at the same time we are developing individual consciousness. We are the Mind of God becoming human. We are the body, mind and spirit of God evolving into a perfect individual-divine unity. We have examples of this human-divine unity in the life of Jesus. The goal in human evolution is for us to attain a human-divine consciousness, which can overcome the limitations of the body, walk on water if we choose, or even live-forever on this planet as a human if we choose to. We are powerful spiritual beings with a oneness of the Whole and the wholeness of the One. On a higher level, we are gods just as Jesus said. This is another way of saying we are “godlings” or “children.” We are growing up to be like our Parents. The core of our being, our spirit, is perfect love and perfect “God consciousness.” We travel this River of Life to bring the “kingdom of God” to this world.

You have all knowledge

Within this realm of spirit exists the presence of God, the Father, and Christ, and a host of innumerable angels and spirits of just men made perfect (Hebrews 12).  As well, within this realm of spirit was all knowledge?

And knowledge – all knowledge – exists almost in a state of fluidity, in the spirit realm.  Available to all, however, few really access it.

Seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness…2Pe 1:3

When the Lord spoke that, He gave us all things pertaining to life and godliness; there was a hitch, they exist and have their reality in the spirit; and must be appropriated or “drawn down” by Children.  Yes we have all things.  Yes we are rich.  Yes, we have all knowledge.  But it must be taken.  It must be appropriated.  This means, you need to know that it is here, and that you can do this.

Let’s look for a moment at a couple of scriptures…

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. John 14:26 

 As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. 1Jn 2:27 

 None of you really has need for a teacher, for in truth; this knowledge is at your disposal, if you only realized it.

 

The Word says….you have not because you ask amiss, or ask not; ask that your joy may be made full.  (James 4:2) (Jn 16:24)

The problem is we have not known how to ask, and we have not known what to ask.  That is why we wait upon the Lord that is why we travail and are driven to stay in His presence.

And what’s more; knowledge is being released, as we speak, into the spirit realm; knowledge which becomes available for the taking.

“And those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.  But as for you,

Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”
Dan 12:3-4 

 Knowledge is increasing.  We are in a heightened time of release.  You could call it an outpouring of His spirit, of His presence, and of His knowledge…..knowledge Of the Lord …. That will literally fill all the earth.

(One side note addendum….when the word speaks of many shall go back and forth…it has been vertically interpreted as an acceleration of travel on the physical plane, indicative of the time we walk – but there is a higher meaning….  It really speaks of an access and flow between dimensions, or if you prefer, through the veil.  This is what is unfolding, this is really what Daniel 12 refers to).

As the words of spirit continue to come forth, more and more knowledge is being released and being made available to the sons.  You may find inspiration coming to you, dreams in the night, or impressions, unaware perhaps that their origins are emanating from this release in the spirit of a flow of knowledge to God’s people, because the time is now for all to be in the flow.

David Goines’ NDE:  Humans have a mental and spirit body. Before going through the veil, we chose our own physical body. We must forget these memories because in order to experience a physical life, we must experience the physical things, be physically challenged, make choices of free will, and make mistakes so that we can learn from them in ways that only a physical life could impart.

If we retained all of our prior knowledge, we might not bother to experience the physical life for its fulfillment – we might decide to skip the pain and thus miss the pleasure. We promised God that upon accepting the opportunity, challenges and responsibility of a physical life, we would make the most of this opportunity for ourselves and God, return to God with the knowledge and experience gained so that God will be enhanced by our experience.

The reason we need to experience a separation of our total reality when we took on a physical body is because in order for us to appreciate, benefit, and learn all we can from our physical life, we must re-discover what we knew before – in physical ways.

Through our physical life we must discover how to return to God. By the good that we do to each other here, by the ways we improve our minds, and by the ways that we learn to cope with a physical body and physical life, we earn our right of safe passage back to God; and in doing so we honor God. It is God’s love that sends us on the journey and it is our love for God that will allow us to return to God’s loving arms. (David Goines)

 

HEALTH AND HEALING THROUGH THE POWER OF THE MIND

Personification of knowledge (Greek Επιστημη, ...

PERSONIFICATION OF KNOWLEDGE

HOW YOU CAN HARVEST THE POWER OF KNOWLEDGE TO BRING HEALING TO YOUR PHYSICAL BODY

Today, we will begin an in-depth study on healing the physical body, providing you with the necessary tools that you can use to manifest healing that will enable you to enjoy a healthier life style. I do this because God said, “it’s time for a change, and my people are suffering because of a lack of VISION in their life style.”  Instead of my people enjoying the benefits of a healthier life, their physical bodies are rapidly decaying due to the lack of KNOWLEDGE of how to bring about the necessary changes that will provide them with a healthier physical body.  God said to me to tell my people this, “ 1ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you--rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!(A 2For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. (Isaiah 60:1-2 AMP).  God wants you to take a stand against the evil spirits that have help to put your physical bodies on the road to decay.   He wants you to be made complete again, because your natural state is wellness, and the primary manifestation of life and how you may get in touch with it, is what I will now attempt to explain to you.

Now let us begin with knowledge, which is of priceless value, because by applying knowledge we can make our future what we wish it to be.  When we realize that our present character, our present environment, our present ability, our present physical condition are all the result of past methods of thinking, we shall begin to have some conception of the value of knowledge.

If the state of our health is not all that could be desired, let us examine our method of thinking, let us remember that every thought produces an impression on the mind; every impression is a seed which will sink into the subconscious and form a tendency. The tendency will be to attract other similar thoughts and before we know it we shall have a crop which must be harvested.

If these thoughts contain disease germs, the harvest will be sickness, decay, weakness, and failure; the question is, what are we thinking, what are we creating, what is the harvest to be?

James Allen wrote in his book, “Mind is the Master,” these words.  “Even physical conditions are largely determined by mental states, and to this truth the scientific world is rapidly being drawn.  The old, materialistic belief that a man is what his body makes him is rapidly passing away, and is being replaced by the inspiring belief that man is superior to his body, and that his body is what he makes it by the power of thought.  Men everywhere are ceasing to believe that a man is despairing because he is dyspeptic, and are coming to understand that he is dyspeptic because he is despairing, and in the near future, the fact that all disease has its origin in the mind will become common knowledge.

There is no evil in the universe but has its root and origin in the mind, and sin, sickness, sorrow, and affliction do not, in reality, belong to the universal order, are not inherent in the nature of things, but are the direct outcome of our ignorance of the right relations of things.

According to tradition, there once lived, in India, a school of philosophers who led a life of such absolute purity and simplicity that they commonly reached the age of one hundred and fifty years, and to fall sick was looked upon by them as an unpardonable disgrace, for it was considered to indicate a violation of law.

The sooner we realize and acknowledge that sickness, far from being the arbitrary visitation of an offended God, or the test of an unwise Providence, is the result of our own error or sin, the sooner shall we enter upon the highway of health?  Disease comes to those who attract it, to those whose minds and bodies are receptive to it, and flee from those whose strong, pure, and positive thought-sphere generates healing and life-giving currents.

If you are given to anger, worry, jealousy, greed, or any other inharmonious state of mind, and expect perfect physical health, you are expecting the impossible, for you are continually sowing the seeds of disease in your mind.  Such conditions of mind are carefully shunned by the wise man, for he knows them to be far more dangerous than a bad drain or an infected house.

If you would be free from all physical aches and pains, and would enjoy perfect physical harmony, then put your mind in order, and harmonize your thoughts.  Think joyful thoughts; think loving thoughts; let the elixir of goodwill course through your veins, and you will need no other medicine.  Put away your jealousies, your suspicions, your worries, your hatreds, your selfish indulgences, and you will put away your dyspepsia, your biliousness, your nervousness and aching joints.  If you will persist in clinging to these debilitating and demoralizing habits of mind, then do not complain when your body is laid low with sickness.”  From James Allen, “The secret of health, success, and power.” Page 30

 

 

 

UNDERSTANDING THE TRUTH OF GOD’S REASONING

Plato's idea of perception

PLATO'S IDEA OF PERCEPTION (UNDERSTANDING IS YOUR KEY)

UNDERSTANDING THE TRUTH OF GOD’S REASONING

Sometimes in our lives, we find it difficult to except the truth of reasoning, even though it is staring us right in the face.  We make up all sorts of excuses to say the reality of a thing is not reality only because we lack the knowledge and understanding.  However, God has created all things perfectly by His own reasoning and in His own time.  Therefore, who are we to question what is, is?  God commands us to remove all doubt from our minds, and understand the things of the universe, and then perhaps we can develop the wisdom and knowledge to discern why the reality of God’s reasoning is what it is. Now listen to what the Bible tells us to do, it says, “Get skillful and godly Wisdomget understanding (discernment, comprehension, and interpretation); do not forget and do not turn back from the words of my mouth.” (Proverbs 4:4-6 AMP)

Now when you take the time to get a clear understanding of a thing, it will bring you face to face with truth.  The Bible says’ in John 8:32, know the truth and the truth will set you free.  Now free your mind and allow the truth of this teaching to empower you with the knowledge that can lift you up on the wings of an eagle and allow you to see clearly, the awesome power of God by showing you the real power of faith and reasoning.

Some of us have the idea that faith and reasoning are in conflict with each other. They think that if you have reason, you do not need faith, and if you go by faith, you cannot go by reasoning. This paradox has caused the biggest problems in all religion and spirituality. The truth is that faith and reason are the same. In order to have faith about something, you need to know it as true. You cannot know something as true unless you have a reason for it to be so. Faith is reason and reason is faith.

All truths are ideas. If you knew everything there is to know about an idea, you would no longer need to “have faith” in it. You just know it as reality. Faith knows. To know a thing is to be aware of it. It is all about awareness, the more you have it, the more faith you have. If you want to know something, you have to understand everything there is to understand about it. You have to be able to explain everything about it. The more reasons you discover, the more truth you realize.

The way to truth is the way of understanding. Understanding alone will solve all our problems. Understanding the problem dissolves the problem. Once we understand a problem, it is no longer a problem. All that is left is to act out the solution. A problem is never without a solution; otherwise, it would not be a problem.

Therefore, all problems have their corresponding solutions. Understanding is the key to resolving everything. To understand is to reason. You have to reason all the way to all truth.

Everything in the universe is consciousness. For something to be realized, it has to be perceived. Until we are able to perceive a thing, it is not real to us. It would be real to the one who perceives it. The more we are able to perceive, the more conscious we become. Consciousness is what we are, and the more we expand our consciousness with perception, the more we expand our being. The more our awareness increases, the greater our reality will be until it matches the reality of the whole.

Understanding brings life to those that have it. When you deal with things from a state of awareness, you become a cause because you act with freewill. When you deal with things from a state of ignorance, you become an effect because you act with unconscious choice.

Awareness allows your mind to be calm. Then you are free to choose reality, whereas ignorance causes you to be unstable and moved by impulses. He that deviates out of the way of understanding ends up in the congregation of the dead.

The subconscious mind does not differentiate between an imagined experience and a physically experienced one. To know something is to have an experience of it. The more you experience something whether physically or mentally, the more you know it in consciousness. You can always experience a thing from a place of awareness or a place of ignorance. Learning with awareness brings enjoyment and freedom whereas learning with ignorance brings pain and suffering. The difference between learning with awareness and learning with ignorance depends on the intent.

When you go through every experience with the intent to understand, you are resonating with awareness and your consciousness will be open to perceiving as much as you can about it. When you seek to understand, you can arrive at the right reasons, or else you would reason wrongly from lower consciousness and mishandle the situation because you are not seeing what is out of your perception.

Incline your ear unto understanding. Seek to know the reason of a thing. Seek to know all the reasons there are to know about it. Open your heart to be understanding so that you may receive the truth of a matter and not block it out of perception. You need understanding in order to do what is right.

Understanding gives us strength because it makes us bigger than our situations. Knowing all the explanations and reasons of a thing allows you to see it in a scientific and definite way. Faith is having certainty.

Evolution of science, knowledge and consciousness is evolution of faith.

When you know everything from a position of science, there are no more doubts, because now, everything is understood through the universal laws that never change. You know absolute reality to the fullest degree. In any situation where total understanding appears to be unattainable in a scientific way, it means the science is incomplete.

True science is perfect in reasoning and operates from a position of total perception. Total faith and total science are the same. It is all awareness of truth.

Faith comes by hearing which means perception, and perception by the Word of God. The Word is Logos, which means Reason. Reason or awareness directs your perception and determines your knowing.

To know as much of the Word of God is to know as much reason as possible. All wisdom, understanding and knowledge are for you to be convinced about the truth because you are aware of all the reasons that define it. To have absolute faith is to be totally convinced about the truth.

Reason or logic is what runs the entire universe. You need as much reasons as possible to do well.  Reason is what causes others to act and it determines how they act. The programming logic runs the program. If you want to move yourself or others to take a certain action, give as much reason as possible whether logical or emotional, conscious or subtle to persuade, direct and motivate them. Reason can command an entire army to war or it can compel all nations to peace and harmony.

God himself has perfect reasoning and total understanding of all there is. When we are lacking awareness about something but are clearly guided by him in a certain area, that is when we should trust in God with all our heart and not lean towards our limited understanding. God’s reason is the higher reasoning compared to ours. To reason against reason is treason. However, God still wants us to grow in awareness and understanding so that we may reach his level of reasoning and be of one mind with him.

WHO ARE THE SONS OF GOD? (Genesis 6:1-2)

WHO ARE THE SONS OF GOD? (Genesis 6:1-2)

Today’s message is a direct response to one of our readers who posted a comment and asked the above question after reading our message last week title, “GAINING KNOWLEDGE OF THE TWO ASPECTS OF GOD.” You can read his entire comments and question by clicking on this message. We thank the reader for this very important question, and we welcome all questions and comments from our members and readers.

Now here is the answer to this very important question from Genesis 6:1-2. When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. Then the LORD said, “My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty years.”

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days – and also afterward – when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

Genesis 7:23

Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; men and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds of the air were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.

Numbers 13:33

“We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”


First, who are the “sons of God” and the “Nephilim”? There are three proposed interpretations:

  1. “Sons of God” refers to fallen angels who lived on earth and married human women. The Nephilim are giants of extra-human strength who were the offspring of these marriages.
  2. “Sons of God” refers to descendents of Seth, who were godly men who sinned by marrying descendents of Cain, who would have been pagans. The Nephilim were simply “heroes”, not giants, and may or may not have been the offspring of the mixed marriages.
  3. “Sons of God” is better translated as “kings” or “sons of nobles” and “Nephilim” is best translated as “princes” or “great men.” That is, the “sons of God” were royalty or aristocrats who were generally immoral and married common women, possibly against their will or despite their already being married.

Arguments for view 1:

  • The phrase “sons of God” is used in Job 1:6 and 2:1 to describe angels, and apparently early Jewish writers interpreted this passage as referring to angels.
  • In support of the idea that angels came to live on earth and married human women, Jude 6 refers to “angels who…abandoned their own home,” and other passages describe angels as being able to assume human form (Heb 13:2Gen 19:1-3).
  • In Numbers 13:33, the Nephilim are described as giants.

Arguments against view 1:

  • “Sons of God” in the Job passages refers to “good” angels, and distinguishes them from Satan, the fallen angel. Since only fallen angels would be marrying humans, they wouldn’t be referred to as “sons of God.”
  • Mark 12:25 and Matthew 22:30 state that angels don’t marry. (Supporters of this view respond that these passages say that angels don’t marry in heaven, not that they can’t marry on earth.)
  • Num 13:33 could be an exaggeration of the faithless spies.
  • God seems to condemn mankind for the intermarrying in Gen 6:3, but says nothing about the angels, though they were at least as responsible for it as the humans.

Arguments for view 2:

  • Humans are referred to as children of God elsewhere in the Bible (Deut 14:1Is 43:6, etc.)
  • Genesis 5 describes godly descendents of Seth (Enoch, Noah), while Lamech, one of Cain’s descendents, was also a murderer (Gen 4:23).
  • To support the “Nephilim weren’t offspring of the marriages” view: Gen 6:4 doesn’t explicitly say the Nephilim were offspring, only that they showed up at the same time the intermarriage was happening.

Arguments against view 2:

  • The Sethites don’t sound very godly, since only Noah and his family were spared from the flood. (However, “sons of God” may refer to generations previous to those whose sin brought about the flood.)
  • This interpretation requires that the phrases “men” and “daughters of men” have two different meanings within the same sentence. “Men” and “daughters of men” in v.1 would refer to all mankind and their daughters, but “daughters of men” in v. 2 would refer to Cainite women.

Arguments for view 3:

  • Contemporary rulers referred to themselves as sons of God – the Egyptian king was called “son of Re.”
  • The Hebrew word in the phrase “sons of God” is Elohim, which is elsewhere in the Bible translated as “judge” or other human authority (Ex 21:6Ps 82:1)
  • Early translations of “sons of Elohim” rendered it as it as “sons of nobles” or “sons of kings”
  • The word “Nephilim” is associated in Gen 6:4 with “gibborim”, which means “mighty man of valor, strength, wealth, or power.”

Arguments against view 3:

  • While pagans referred to royalty as sons of God, Israelites did not, and nobles were not referred to as “sons of God.”
  • This interpretation seems “forced” – a stretching of the meaning of the text.
  1. It seems unlikely to me, especially considering the last argument against it. In addition, it seems clear that “sons of God” does not have to refer to angels, fallen or not.
  2. It further seems the most natural, but the arguments against it do present legitimate problems.
  3. It does seem rather strange, but the arguments against it are not very strong.

Regardless of which interpretation one accepts, there is no contradiction in the Nephilim appearing both before and after the Flood. Genesis 6:4 does say, “The Nephilim were on the earth in those days – and also afterward.” If the Nephilim were giant offspring of humans and fallen angels, the fallen angels could have come back after the Flood and had more offspring. If the Nephilim were heroes or nobles, society after the Flood could produce heroes and nobles just as well as society before the Flood.


GAINING KNOWLEDGE OF THE TWO ASPECTS OF GOD (PART 2)

GETTING TO KNOW THE PERSONAL ASPECT OF GOD (John 8:32)

 In the first lesson, we discussed the Universal Aspects of God.  In this lesson, we will discuss the personal aspects of God.  However, we encourage you to go back and re-read lesson one to help you better understand the key aspects of this discussion. In addition, as usual we have included the following quote from lesson one to get you to think deeply on this matter as you read and study it.

The quote is this, Think Deeply Before Concluding this Matter.” Therefore, we will provide you with this quote from Dr. Kinley as you begin your study. Dr. Kinley stresses the importance of thinking on a matter before reaching a conclusion “… Nevertheless, we must, for our own Eternal welfare, regardless of our present so-called Church affiliation, keep an open mind to proven facts, which Satan, the Adversary, who was created to oppose the TRUTH, is always present to influence us in the wrong direction.”

Knowledge of the universal aspect of God is enough to give us tremendous amount of power to rule the universe and achieve our dreams, desires, destiny and almost everything we could ever want in this life on Earth. Nevertheless, there is the personal aspect of God that we should come to know about. It is more than just using our God given natural divine powers. It is about having a relationship with Him.

There is a personal God and He is the personal aspect. Theosophy, New Age, Gnosis and various other religions and philosophies deny the existence of a personal God. They believe that there cannot be a personal God because God is infinite and a personality is finite. They believe that the universal mind can only manifest through the individual mind and not on its own.

The truth is that the trinity of the Godhead is three distinct individualities. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three actual persons. To have a relationship with God is to relate with the personal aspect of God. It is the universal aspect of God, that is infinite, but the personal aspect of God is finite. God has a fixed personality that has boundaries without variableness or shadow of turning. God cannot lie, God is love, and God is holy. The person of God is only perfect and complete good. In him is no evil.

For such a reason as this, God cannot coexist with sin in his presence. Anything that has sin, is separated from the personal aspect of God, although it is still connected to the universal aspect. Understanding this is what solves the paradox between Theosophy and Christianity. We are all connected to God and can draw inspiration from the universal aspect of the divine but we cannot have true fellowship with Him unless, the blood of Jesus Christ washes us.

Salvation is of two aspects. Salvation from ignorance through knowledge (Gnosis – Learning) and salvation from sins through knowledge (Oida – To Know fully) and belief of Jesus Christ as God and savior.

John 8:32 says, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Why does Theosophy, New Age and Gnosis contain so much knowledge about the nature of the Universe and God to the extent that it makes Christianity appear as if we know so little? The reason is because one side has been focusing mainly on the universal aspect of God while the other has been focusing mainly on the personal aspect.

The question is who is The One at work manipulating world events and making things happen that way? The person can be none other than the most powerful heavenly being in the universe. The one was full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. His name means Bringing Light. His name is Lucifer the anointed cherub. Who else has all knowledge of the universe and the different planes of reality than him? Who else knows more about the nature of God than him?

However, being the greatest in heaven, he chose to think that he could be like the most High. He desired to exalt his throne above the stars of God but Jesus cast him out of heaven. Lucifer fell like lightning from heaven because he had sinned against God with his wrong thinking and ignorance. Though he was full of wisdom, he still had the free will to choose his thoughts. He chose to think wrongly and hence sinned through ignorance. Wrong thinking is ignorance and ignorance is the only evil that leads to all other forms of evil.

Now the Bringer of Light is at work making people believe that there is No God or that God exist but it is the God of a greater scope than the God of Christianity. His intention is to make spiritual people focus purely on the universal aspect of God and deny the personal aspect of God. By denying God as a personality, the person of Jesus Christ as God is denied. The Angel of Light’s grand scheme is to make people develop themselves spiritually in of the universal aspect of God and then inserting himself in one name or another somewhere along the path as the God they should believe in.

Lucifer knows that he cannot make a direct lie be a universally accepted truth. Therefore, he knows that the best thing he can do is to promote the truth, not the whole but a portion. He knows that a lie cannot contend with the truth, therefore, the art of deception is not to enforce the lie but to conceal the truth. The lie, can be enforced only when the truth is hidden. The way to conceal the truth is to control the vision that looks upon it, by making it focus on one area and away from another. Magician’s misdirection, the portion of the truth that is missing can be replaced with error that can be complemented with the remaining portion of the truth creating the perfect illusion.

2Corinthians 13:8, for we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.

His other intention is to keep the Christians in as much ignorance as possible about the universal aspect of God. The less knowledge they have about the universal aspect, the less power they have. Lucifer makes Christians believe all kinds of things are satanic, evil and not of God when those things truly belong to God and not him. He even uses scripture and the law of God to make people shun away from knowledge considered to be doctrines of devils. The truth is, truth is mixed with error in every place. What good is light among light? Christians are called to be a light among darkness.

Many symbols that belong to God are neither good nor evil, even though Lucifer may have made use of them in his own works. The serpent was created by God, as the most subtle creature in the garden. The entire signs of the Orion, from Virgo to Leo, was placed by God in the heavens to tell the story of salvation and Jesus Christ. Virgo represents the Virgin Mary and Leo represents Jesus as the victorious Lion of Judah. All angels are angels of light. Lucifer is no longer really an Angel of Light but a Prince of Darkness.

Lucifer was God’s greatest creation, which had fallen. He believed that he could be like God because he and God were made of the same substance, which is consciousness. He persuaded all of heaven’s angels to join him in becoming like God against the permission of the Godhead by claiming that the trinity was egoistical to disallow any other being to be their equal. He only succeeded in turning a third of the angels to his cause and fought against God but they lost. Lucifer became Satan which means Adversary of God. He was casted out of heaven and into the earth where God had created Man.

Revelation 12:7-9, and there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Lucifer did the same thing with Man that he did with Angels. He told Adam and Eve that they could become God if they ate the forbidden fruit so that they would know good and evil like God. God had originally given Man dominion over the earth but when Lucifer got Man to sin against God, Man’s dominion was shared with Satan. The fall of Man gave place of the world throne to Lucifer. That is why Satan could tempt Jesus with the deal of sharing ownership of the material kingdom if Jesus would worship him.

Satan may be the god of this world, but God is still the ultimate owner of the material world. Whatever we as Christians, touch in the material world, becomes redeemed by the blood of Jesus. Jesus had come to redeem perfect purity of Man and God’s shared dominion of the material. To us, nothing is secular, everything is sacred. Titus 1:15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

There are only two to think about in this world, Jesus and Lucifer. The two are not the same. When you are not thinking of one, you are not aware of what he is doing and may attribute his work to the other.

Keep the two in mind so that you can keep them separate. For every matter there is antimatter, but Light and Anti Light are exactly alike. True Light is pure and never changing. Anti Light shifts one degree beyond light and changes into pure darkness, which is at the other extreme end of the polarity. Nothing can be above God. God is the highest; to go beyond the highest is to fall into the lowest.

Universal Knowledge is Universal Power. For this reason, the Children of the world are wiser than Children of Light. It is time for the Christians to be wise as serpents and use the Angel of Light’s tactics against him. The tables have to be turned against Lucifer. We are the greater serpents, just like the serpent of Moses rod that ate up all the serpents of Pharaoh’s magicians. The wisest Children of Light are those that truly understand both the universal and personal aspect of God.

Now think deeply on what you have just read, meditate on it, and allow God to speak truth to power in your heart.  Now we minister to you from a position of peace, power, purpose and prosperity.  “BE BLESSED!”

GAINING KNOWLEDGE OF THE TWO ASPECT OF GOD (PART 1)

Knowledge, mural by Robert Lewis Reid. Second ...

Murial of Knowledge - Image via Wikipedia

Today we begin this discussion, with this one truth. There is only one God! God is all; all is God. We are God. We are not gods separate from one another we are God. There is only one presence. That Omni-presence is God, infinite, absolute, and impersonal God. We are that presence, for there is no place that God is not. We live and move and have our being in him, in that perfect, absolute, impersonal All.

As we come into a realization of this truth, our not knowing will began to lose its grip on us. Like physical darkness, not knowing is a nothing, an un-thing. Light does not have to struggle with darkness to overcome it; it has only to shine. We do not have to struggle with not knowing; we have only to see, to know, and to feel this Truth, and our not knowing will dissolve into its native nothingness.

As you read and study these lessons, we want you toThink Deeply Before Concluding this Matter.” Therefore we will provide you with this quote from Dr. Kinley as you begin your study. Dr. Kinley stresses the importance of thinking on a matter before reaching a conclusion “… Nevertheless, we must, for our own Eternal welfare, regardless of our present so-called Church affiliation, keep an open mind to proven facts, which Satan, the Adversary, who was created to oppose the TRUTH, is always present to influence us in the wrong direction.

Now, here once again, we encourage you to think deeply on these truths, “There are two aspects of God, the universal and the personal aspect. Most people know a lot about one aspect but little of the other.”  We are going to share with you both aspects, and once again, we say, “THINK DEEPLY BEFORE CONCLUDING THIS MATTER.”

 The universal aspect of God is the Universal Power we can use at will. The personal aspect of God is the Person of God moving as He Wills.

Universal power is mental power. It is the divine nature of our being when God created us. The power within us is a reflection of the omnipotent. As we are created in the image of God, we have the universal aspect of God within our spirit. We are creators of our own reality, the microcosm in the same way as God created the entire universe, the macrocosm. Man is to rule his world like God governs the universe.

The universal aspect of God is the realm of inspiration, creativity and genius. It is the power of the universal mind, that is accessible by everyone without exception. The individual mind is connected to the universal mind by thought. The ability to think makes us conscious creators. The better a person is able to think, the more intelligent he is. Intelligence is what separates one level of being from another. We are all equal aspects of God’s creation, but we all manifest his power at varying degrees.

Thought and Knowledge are one. Thought leads to knowledge and knowledge influences thought.

Choice is an illusion created by those in control for those who are not. To be in control, you must know. It is knowing how things work and understanding what is going on that gives you awareness of the governing dynamics of reality. It is awareness that puts you in a position of being a master player instead of a pawn on a chessboard.

Mental power is spiritual power because Mind and Spirit are One and the Same. With the power of the universal mind, you can accomplish all miracles and do great things. The power is a natural power because it follows natural laws. We might think that certain things defy natural laws but that is because we are seeing things from only one level. Natural laws exist on every plane of reality, both the physical as well as the mental planes. Laws if the lower plane are governed by laws of the higher plane. Therefore everything supernatural is actually natural when we have an understanding of a multidimensional universe.

The universal laws are essentially the whole process of Divinity, Consciousness or Energy in motion (Emotion).

When we understand these laws and apply them in our life, anything we want can be created.

Because the same laws that natures uses to create a forest, a galaxy, or a human body can also bring about the fulfillment of all our desires.

All things in the universe have a connection with the universal mind. Nothing can exist without that connection. All things consist and have their being by the universal mind. We are connected to everything else through the universal mind. Separation is an illusion for we are all one.

We can use our mind at will. All power is within and is absolutely within our control. This is referring to mental power which is the universal aspect of God. We can all train and develop our skill in using mental power. Visualization, affirmation, reality creation, mental influence, hypnosis, sub-lima messaging and subconscious programming are all forms of using mental power.

Using mental power to make things happen is what the concept of True Magic is fundamentally about.

Magic is the control of the visible world through invisible means. Magic in its absolute form is purely mental. Magic Is properly referred to as Manifestation. What you create in your mind becomes manifested in physical reality over time. The Law of Attraction is whatever you focus on most of the time, you get. That is why we all create our individual realities, by the thoughts we think.

Holistic health and alternative medicine use Magic to manifest healing. Our physical bodies are simply channels of our energy bodies. Consciousness affects our state of being in all aspects. It is the metaphysical understanding of bodily function in holistic health surpassing the understanding of formal medical science that enables curing of many incurable diseases and physical conditions.

The universal power of mental Magic is neutral. It can be used for either good or evil. What differentiates between Black Magic and White Magic is the intent of the user. Just like a person can pray another well, a person can also pray another sick. Sending thoughts of love, joy, peace, well being and happiness to someone will influence that person’s mind in a positive way. Sending thoughts of intimidation, discord, doubt, weakness and discouragement will influence his mind in a negative way.

Realizing the psychic nature of our thoughts and learning how to use them consciously and effectively enables us to be much better at creating the reality we desire in account of the greatest good of all. There is nothing wrong with developing our psychic abilities and expressing our God given powers for the betterment of life and the universe, but the problem comes when we are so content with the universal aspect of God that we overlook or deny the existence of the personal aspect of God completely.  (TO BE CONTINUED IN PART 2)

 

KNOWING GOD LEADS TO SELF CONTROL

KNOWING GOD LEADS TO SELF CONTROL; as one of the fruits of the Spirit, self-control refers to mastery over sinful human desires in every aspect of life.  The Greeks considered this a highly prized virtue. Their focus, of course, was entirely on self-effort, but the problem was that self-effort always fails in the long run because it may control the body but does not affect inward desires.  We know from Romans 8:13 and Galatians 5:22-23 that Christians have the Holy Spirit’s help to gain self-control.

The quality of self-control must then lead to patient endurance, the ability to steadfastly endure suffering or evil without giving up one’s faith.  Endurance is not a stoic indifference to whatever fate allows; rather, it springs from faith in God’s goodness and control over all that happens in believers lives.

Such endurance leads to godliness,  this is another word that is unusual to the New Testament, but common to Greek ethics lists of that day, we see that Paul emphasized godliness in the Pastoral Epistles as being the virtue that should characterize the life and conduct of the believers.  Godliness was the primary word for “religion” and referred to a person’s correct attitudes toward God and people, usually referring to performing obligatory duties.  Here we discover in 1st Peter the word describes an awareness of God in all of life – a lifestyle that exemplifies Christ and is empowered by him (the same word is used in (1st Peter 1:3).  Christians must have a right relationship with God and right relationships with fellow believers.  The false teachers claimed such “godliness,” but were sadly lacking in reverence toward God and in good attitudes toward others.
