The Sacrifice You Cannot Live Without

7 Apr

by A. Freeman, guest writer

There is a mistaken belief among “Muslims” that Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb of God, wasn’t crucified, even though the Koran (Quran) – if read and understood properly – CONFIRMS the Biblical account of the crucifixion and resurrection (Sura 3:55, 4:157-158, 6:122, 19:33-34).

This error is then compounded in multiple ways, by wrongly assuming the Bible has been corrupted (even though God said that could never happen – Sura 15:9-10) and/or that sacrifice for sins is allegedly unnecessary, because God promised that no SOUL will ultimately be punished for the sins of another on Judgment Day which, of course, is true.

Ezekiel 18:20-22
18:20
The SOUL that sinneth, IT shall DIE. The son shall not bear the inequity of the father, neither shall the father bear the inequity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

18:21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all My Statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
18:22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

The reason these very simple concepts are not understood is because they are not being seen from a spiritual point of view. That’s why Christ told us through the mouth of Jesus that unless one is reborn as their true, spirit self, they cannot understand the difference between the spirit (Being/Soul) and the flesh (human-animal), and thus can NEVER properly understand the Scriptures, including the Koran (John 3:3-7).  

According to The Law, which every Muslim is COMMANDED to read, carefully study and obey (Sura 6:153-157), the Soul/spirit-Being MUST atone for sin (the commission of a crime – 1 John 3:4), by sacrificing the life of the flesh, which is in the blood of the animal.

Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the FLESH [is] in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the Altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it [is] the blood [that] maketh an atonement for the soul.

God is NOT bloodthirsty nor barbaric; He is loving and patient beyond understanding, to bring us to repentance, so we learn personal accountability for our own actions, change our selfish, sinful ways, and LIVE (Deut. 30:15-20). True repentance is choosing of one’s own free-will to live without crime (sin). Why would God ever release unrepentant criminals – who refuse to learn sacrifice, discipline, self-control and obedience to His Law – from this prison-planet? That wouldn’t be fair to the rest of the law-abiding citizens of the universe, now would it?

Punishment for our non-capital criminal offenses/sins here on Earth began with substitute animal sacrifices. People’s material wealth was in the land and their livestock, so having to sacrifice their best breeding stock should have provided ample incentive not to sin/break The Law, teaching putting others first and personal responsibility for one’s own actions.

We were provided the example of Abraham being asked to offer up his miracle son Isaac, foreshadowing God offering up Jesus (the Lamb of God) 2000 years later, just as substitute animal sacrifice foreshadowed “self” sacrifice (Matt. 10:38, Mark 8:34, Luke 9:23, Luke 14:26-27, Gal. 2:20, Sura 6:162, Sura 92:18-21). “Self” sacrifice is the SOUL daily sacrificing the selfish human animal it lives inside of, and its ego, for the mutual benefit of everyone.

Yes, once Abraham had passed his test, God provided him with a ram (male adult sheep) to sacrifice instead of the human animal body of Isaac, but God still required this substitute animal sacrifice as an atonement for sin, again foreshadowing the crucifixion of the human animal Jesus instead of Isaac’s sons/descendants, with whom God made His Covenant (Gen. 17:20-21).

The reason God sent His Son, the Messiah/Christ to incarnate Jesus 2000 years ago, is because after 4000 years, many human lifetimes, and countless opportunities, we still were not keeping The Law and thus fell under the Curse (penalty clause) of The Law, meaning EVERYONE had to die. Christ substituted himself and WILLINGLY accepted that sacrificial assignment, just as Isaac had.

The penalty clause states that, for not keeping The Law/Covenant, the punishment is death to the human-animal body (see Deut. 28), to deter us (the Souls/spirit-Beings/Jinns) from becoming hardened, unrepentant criminals that will have to be executed on Judgment Day (Ezek. 18:4, Rom. 6:23). How will YOU pay God for the sins/crimes of your previous lifetimes in human-animal bodies? How will YOU pay God for the past sins/crimes of your current human lifetime?

And why would anyone continue sinning/breaking The Law/Covenant committing crimes, knowing they are facing the spiritual worse than death penalty in The Fire, unless they stop?

Anyone struggling with these statements is simply not seeing our situation spiritually, because our Most Merciful and Oft Forgiving God doesn’t give us a mere 70-80 years (or less) to get it right or burn. 6000 years is what our heavenly Father (God) considers to be long-suffering. Reincarnation is an irrefutable fact.

WE ARE NOT THESE MORTAL HUMAN ANIMAL BODIES THAT WE ARE TEMPORARILY USING.

We are immortal Souls/spiritual-energy Beings of Light/Jinns/Angels (made from “fire”) that are NOT OF THIS WORLD. It is the human animal that we are temporarily incarnating/inhabiting that is made from “clay”, i.e. is of this world.

Jesus was the mortal human son of Mary, born in Bethlehem in the Spring, and crucified at the age of 40 at the same time of the year. Hence his designation as the “Son of Man”. “Jesus”, along with being a name, is also a title, which means “Saviour” or, more specifically, “YHWH (“I AM”) Saves”.

The Messiah/Christ is the immortal Spirit-Being Who is the firstborn/first-created Son of God (Col. 1:15, Rev. 3:14), and definitely NOT of this world, as He said through the mouth of Jesus, whom He (Christ – the Holy Spirit/Mediator between God and men – John 14:18, 1 Tim. 2:5) incarnated/“strengthened” 2000 years ago (Sura 2:87, 2:153, 5:113). God is NOT human (John 4:24) and does NOT have a consort/partner (Jer. 44:17-25, Sura 6:101) nor does He beget human sons.

It was Jesus whom God raised 3 days and 3 nights after he was crucified, NOT The Messiah/Christ. It only appeared as if the immortal Messiah/Christ had been killed, because He was incarnated inside the body of Jesus (John 1:10). Jesus gave up the spirit/Christ after he said: “It is finished.”

John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the Spirit (Christ within him).

Luke 23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into Thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the Spirit (Christ within him).

So why was human-animal Jesus, the unblemished Lamb of God, voluntarily sacrificed instead of us, if no SOUL will be punished for the sins of another? Why did Christ, WILLINGLY agree to suffer the pain of the crucifixion inside the human-animal body of Jesus to pay the penalty for our past sins?

TO AGAIN TEACH US “SELF” SACRIFICE AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ACTIONS, AND TO SHOW US WHO AND WHAT WE REALLY ARE, AND WHAT LOVE REALLY IS (John 15:13).

The Messiah/Christ is our ONLY Teacher/Imam (Matt. 23:8-10). He is also the ONLY One God Anointed to be King over us, and to whom God shall give the Davidic Throne (Eze. 21:16-27. Luke 1:32). Christ isn’t just King of the “Jews” or the “Christians” or the “Muslims”; Christ is The King of kings (Rev. 19:11-16) over the entire world, all of which God created through Christ (Heb. 1:1-4).

THAT is the assignment God gave to His Anointed One (Messiah/Christ), to teach and lead by example, and to save us from the “Curse”/Penalty Clause of The Law. THAT is the reason God refers to His Anointed One as “The Word of God”. And THAT is the reason why God’s Anointed One SERVES as the Holy Spirit (our connection to God – John 14:18, 1 Tim. 2:5, Heb. 5:5-10).

Matthew 23:10-11

23:10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, [even] Christ.
23:11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

As our Teacher and King, Christ took personal responsibility for our failures as his students and prisoners (Isa. 14:12-17) even though the fault was ours (Rev. 12:7-9). And that selfless act itself, of willingly and extremely painfully sacrificing his human-animal life, was a lesson too, as it teaches true believers:

1) there is no reason to fear the death of the human body (Matt. 10:28), because we are NOT the human-animals we live inside of;

2) there is eternal, spiritual life after the death of the human-animal body;

3) only through sacrificing/crucifying our “self” (the ego) DAILY can we be resurrected;

4) there is no greater love than to be willing to give your life for others*;

5) we need to set the correct example for others through every thought, word and action;

6) we need to take personal responsibility for our own actions instead of trying to blame others; and

7) true faith requires obedience to God all day every day, not just when it’s easy and convenient.

*Note: the experiences we have in this physical world are to teach us spiritual lessons. Giving up one’s human life teaches the Soul/spirit-Being within to invariably give up its own “self” life (its selfish desires) for the good of others.

How can anyone in their right mind acknowledge they are a sinner (criminal), and yet be conned into believing they are perfect and not in need of a Saviour, that God Himself personally selected and sent (John 17:3)? Had Christ not been willing to make that sacrifice, laying down the human-animal body of Jesus to pay for our PAST sins (Rom. 3:25), none of us would have any hope of being resurrected from the spiritually “dead”. The only thing that can convince someone otherwise is their own arrogance/ignorance.

Revelation 20:6, 12-15

20:6 Blessed and holy [is] he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be channels of God and of Christ (Gal. 1:10), and shall reign with him a thousand years.

20:12 And I saw the “Dead”, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another Book was opened, which is [the Book] of Life: and the “Dead” were judged out of those things which were written in the Books, according to their works.
20:13 And the “sea” gave up the “Dead” which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their WORKS.
20:14 And death and hell were cast into the “Lake of Fire”. THIS IS THE SECOND DEATH.
20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the “Lake of Fire”.

By learning from Christ’s Example to crucify your “self” all day long, every single day, for the greater, common good, you will be helping to make this world a better place not only for yourself, but for everyone else too.

How will The Messiah/Christ/Mahdi judge YOU on the Last Day (John 5:22)?

John 5:19-25

5:19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever He doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
5:20 For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that Himself doeth: and He will show him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
5:21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth [them]; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
5:22 FOR THE FATHER JUDGETH NO MAN, BUT HATH COMMITTED ALL JUDGMENT UNTO THE SON Enoch 58:1; 60:11; 68:39).
5:23 That all [men] should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father WHICH HATH SENT HIM.
5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and liveth by Him that sent me, hath Everlasting Life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from “death” unto Life.
5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the “dead” shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall LIVE.

Any SOUL who hasn’t learned to honour God’s Anointed One (Sura 2:98), by daily sacrificing their own self-life, with its selfish, greedy, destructive desires, will find themselves in The Fire on Judgment Day – NOT FOR THE SINS OF ANOTHER, BUT FOR THEIR OWN SINS – exactly as the Koran (Quran) warns us, at least 300 times.

How to Apply The Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, Crucifixion and Resurrection Today

27 Mar

by JAH

The Passover is a very important time to consider both Passovers and what they really mean, or should mean, to each of you.

What everyone needs to think about is how the crucifixion applies to The Passover, because the animal substitute sacrifice was replaced by daily [Self]-sacrifice.

You therefore cannot sacrifice a lamb and paint its blood on the door-posts and lintel of your house, but must apply the crucifixion instead, by metaphorically painting your house/body with the blood of the Lamb. To wash your garments/body clean in the blood of the Lamb.

Revelation 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their (human) lives unto the death (John 12:25).

John 12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that HATETH his life in this world shall keep it unto Life Eternal.

I said I am The Way you have to be, and asked the Disciples, who asked if they could return to heaven with me, if they could drink from the cup that I drank from – being crucified for the benefit of all.John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am The Way, the Truth, and the Life: NOT one man cometh unto the Father, EXCEPT by me.

You therefore, at Passover, need to mentally go through what I went through and endured, in detail in your mind as though it was happening to you and prepare yourself mentally to be able to do the same.

Study what I went through in The Gospels of The New Testament  – The King of kings’ Bible.

The Passover is a time for very SERIOUS REFLECTION on how you need to be in order to go home.

The first Passover was to release you from slavery under men’s legislation, and give you The Laws of Liberty at Sinai, which you have never kept, thus breaking your promises, leading to the Second Passover redeeming you from the death penalty clauses of The Covenant, and yet you still do not keep The Law even now.

And instead of living under The Blessing of The Law, the world lives under Its Curse, still. This will not change until you follow The Way, and Return to The Law, just as I have warned you about as EliJAH.

Malachi 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the Prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the “I AM” (Sura 43:61).

I came to fulfill The Law – then and now.

Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy The Law, or the Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill (pleroo in the original Greek, meaning to fully preach).
Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no way pass from The Law, till all be fulfilled.
Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least COMMANDments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach [them], the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall EXCEED [the righteousness] of the lawyers and politicians, ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 23:23 Woe unto you, lawyers and politicians, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier [matters] of the Law, Judgment, Mercy, and Faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

As a follower of Christ, you should concern yourselves with the weightier matters of The Law that you should be enforcing, to set yourselves free from oppression under men’s unlawful legislation.

Luke 22:15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer:
Luke 22:16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the Kingdom of God.

I feel the same as Father about your feasts. Read each verse carefully and apply it today:

Isaiah 1:10-27

1:10
Hear the Word of the “I AM”, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the Law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
1:11 To what purpose [is] the multitude of your sacrifices unto Me? saith the “I AM”: I am sick of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
1:12 When ye come to appear before Me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread My courts?
1:13 Bring no more worthless oblations; incense is an abomination unto Me; the new moons and Sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot abide; [it is] grief, even the solemn meeting.
1:14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts My soul hateth: they are a trouble unto Me; I am weary to bear [them].
1:15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide Mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
1:16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before Mine eyes; cease to do evil;
1:17 Learn to do well; seek Judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the “I AM”: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
1:20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the “I AM” hath spoken [it].
1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of Judgment; Righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
1:22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
1:23 Thy princes [are] rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.
1:24 Therefore saith the “I AM”, the Lord of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease Me of Mine adversaries, and avenge Me of Mine enemies:
1:25 And I will turn My hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin [gods]:
1:26 And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The City of Righteousness, the Faithful City.
1:27 Zion shall be redeemed with Judgment, and her converts with Righteousness.

Again I ask:

Are you willing to sacrifice yourself for the benefit of others, to set them free from oppression and return them to freedom under The Laws of Liberty?

Matthew 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

Your body represents the cross you must bear for your insurrection.

The True Meaning of Resurrection

Rect – right; straight; rule
Sure – without doubt
Unsure-rection ) unsure of what/Who is right.
                      }
Insure-rection  ) fighting against what/Who is right.
Resure-rection – becoming sure again of what/Who is right

The first death is the death of [Self] referred to by Paul when he said it is given to man once to die to [Self] and then the judgement and Christ said that over such as have died the first death (the completion of daily [Self]-crucifixion) the second death (The Fire) has no power.

When the [Self] is dead the Being; having been reborn (John 3) and having then crucified daily the human [Self]; is resurrected from being under the “Death-Sentence” for insurrection and treason and puts on immortality and Eternal Life again.John 3:15 That whosoever believeth him should not perish, but have Eternal Life.

Notice the verse reads to believe Me.

Become sure again of Who is right.

If you want to really and fully understand what resurrection means and how to become born again and resurrected then now read, digest and live The Way home or face The Fire.

Peace be upon you,

Christ

In Plain Sight or The Mountain Height?

1 Jun

by J. Solomon, guest writer

We should all walk on this temporary human journey in a spiritual way, hoping one day to get our paths right unto Godliness and Goodness towards God and to mankind. But most people are walking only as a human in a human way, a “one way traffic” bound situation, believing they are “only human after all”, not minding the spiritual consequences of their actions while recycling the same bad habits of their evil “self” (Romans 6:18, Romans 8:5-8, John 3:3-7, 1 Corinthians 2:14-15, Galatians 5:24-26).

Hence the question: are you walking “in plain, Earthly sight” or in “the Heavenly Mountain height”?

In other words, are you walking on the Earthly plane, “in/with (human) sight”, shuffling daily between your human abode and place of work, viewing the world through human eyes that are incessantly fixed on the horizon of human desire? Are you one who is hoping to fit in with the crowd (Revelation 14:1-3), distracted from doing what is right by what is popular instead? And doesn’t this make the struggle doubly difficult, leaving you with no other option than to either get on the competition bandwagon, fighting your way to “the top”, in a “survival of the fittest” dog-eat-dog world, as described in TWHOFTF 3:10-26, or get off the not-so-merry-go-round and learn to truly “think outside the box”?

Walking in the ways of the world is like the donkey following the carrot dangling in front of it. You see only what is in front of you, never grasping the “bigger picture” that there is more to this existence here on Earth than temporary worldly wealth, power, fame and fortune, all of which are fleeting. And in a world that is led by human emotion instead of reason and common sense, it becomes a roller-coaster ride with one day a seeming triumph when you get your own, selfish way and the next seeming to be an emotional disaster when you don’t. Why do you think most people today feel life is hopeless and without purpose?

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, because Thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, thou shalt not be a priest unto me, seeing thou hast forgotten the Law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Why would anyone wish to wade through the filth and scum of human existence here on Earth, always looking downward, when there are so much better views from a higher vantage point? We cannot continue to eat dust here on Earth with Satan (Revelation 12:9) and live a clean, holy life (Isaiah 55:9).

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out unto the Earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Genesis 3:14 And The LORD God saith unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.

What if you could change your vantage point, and soar on “the wings of eagles” (Isaiah 40:31) to new mountain heights? Wouldn’t that be a journey worth taking?

The high road is the one less travelled (Matthew 7:13-14), so it’s often a seemingly lonely climb, as there are precious few who are like-minded, or want to live like Jesus did (Matthew 15:1-14, Mark 3:31-35), But the mountain view is liberating, offering a perspective of the sea of restless people(Isaiah 17:12-13) that isn’t possible any other way, free from the confusion of being part of the crowd.

And because it’s the narrow way that very few will find, there’s no crowd to rush you or step on your toes, or your head as you climb the ladder, but be careful not to step on a snake (Matthew 6:33-34, Sura 63).

From that mountain height, you’ll have a much clearer picture of what lies ahead, including the rush, pitfalls, struggles and hassles of life. And that new perspective will help you understand The Way YOU need to walk, and what you need to be doing at any given moment, to do what is best for everyone concerned, while avoiding any impending danger that might lay ahead (Matthew 7:13-14, John 14:6-7).

You’ll also have a better understanding of the errors and direction the crowd/sea is moving in, to know when they’re moving in the right direction, and when they’re moving in the wrong direction. Wouldn’t you rather see the world as it really is, from mountain heights, rather than continue to struggle through the earthly plane, enslaved to the compulsory movement of the crowd? The evil majority on this planet is almost always wrong (Exodus 23:2), deceived by what they believe they see with their human eyes, which frequently isn’t the truth of things. Why not turn to the mountain, for relief from the toxic environment and endless human struggles, so you can find fresher air and a view with mind re-activating scenery and rest for the weary soul?

Matthew 11:28-30

11:28 Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
11:30 For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.

NB: verse 29, which indicates that climbing the great Mountain is only for those willing to learn meekness and humility. There is no place along The Way home for the arrogant or the anxious, who quickly lose their footing on such a narrow, upward climb (Philippians 4:6-8). Do not confuse meekness with weakness, as most people do.

So where is this great “mountain” that will fill the whole Earth you may ask? Has Father not revealed this mystery to those spiritually reborn babes (1 Corinthians 3:1)?

Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

Daniel 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the “Stone” that smote the image became a great “mountain”, and filled the whole Earth.

And what “Stone” is going to become a great “mountain” that fills the whole Earth?

Psalm 118:22 The stone [which] the builders refused is become the head [stone] of the corner (Genesis 49:24, Matthew 21:42).

See also: The Truth About the Stone

Ephesians 2:19-20

2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the holy people, and of the household of God;
2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the Chief Corner-[Stone]; (Ezekiel 21:26-27, Luke 1:32).

Christ clearly is the Chief Corner-STONE, the Rock (Truth) upon which the “Mountain” is built, to which the spiritually-minded will flow (Isaiah 2:2, Micah 4:1). He will magnify The Law and make it honourable (Isaiah 42:21, Deut. 33:21). He will rule with a rod of iron (Psalm 2:8-9, Revelation 2:27, Revelation 12:5). And Christ is the Bread of Life (John 6:35, John 6:48-51) and the one and only Vine supplying us with the Life-Giving energy we need.

John 15:5 I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Why would anyone wish to continue to build on the sinking sand of this desert planet, which hasn’t received one drop of spiritual rain for the past 1260 years (Revelation 11:6) instead of building on the Rock that will NEVER fail? Aren’t you ready to climb the mountain, sure of your balance and footing, and sure of the rest and spiritual enlightenment you will find there?

The Way home

Your Daily Lesson

We are told in Scripture that we should be searching for Christ, and that He would be here in a new body, with a NEW NAME (Genesis 49:22-26, Jeremiah 29:13, Matthew 7:7-8, Revelation 2:17, 3:12, and 19:12).

Revelation 19:12 His eyes [were] as a flame of fire, and on his head [were] many crowns; and he had a NAME written, that NO man knew, but HE himself (ch. 2:17; 3:12).

Christ told us what the world would be like during these end-times, when He promised to return, at a time when no one would be looking for Him (Matthew 24:21-39, Luke 17:20-30, Luke 12:40, 1 Thessalonians 5:2-4, 2 Peter 3:10).

CHRIST ALSO SAID HE WOULD REVEAL THE TRUTH OF THE FATHER TO US (John 16:25, Rev. 10:7-10), which is the only miracle anyone should need at this late hour to recognize our Saviour, Lord and King.

The Truth is this: The Second Coming of Christ is happening NOW (Genesis 49:10, 22:24), so if you want to be rescued from the forthcoming destruction awaiting most of the Earth’s population on the Last Day (Malachi 4), you will need to begin your spiritual climb as soon as possible.

Dialing 666-SELF, Hell-o Satan

30 May

lose self, seek truth, find christMost of us think it’s important to be ourselves. Well, this isn’t exactly true. It is a human trait to want this to be true, but the human Self is the “traitor” to the spiritual Being. Some falsely think that being spiritual is “finding self”, but they are self-delusional, because the Being, or spirit, isn’t selfish. BEING is about losing self, overcoming self and controlling one’s self, through a spiritual desire to do so. This is the real process of becoming spiritually reborn.

It becomes a journey back Home, where a person decides to travel along a good path or takes the high road, instead of the lowly one. The first step is to realize that one cannot be caught up in one’s self, because that means stagnation, and one rots there. To begin a true spiritual journey, a person must realize it’s a quest. He cannot be made anew in one instant or one day. It’s DAILY, all the days of his life. He proves he wants renewal by the process he initiates. Once a true heart’s desire is made manifest by action, its intent is revealed, and a saving grace will come.

A life can no longer be just about the body-vehicle and its likes and dislikes, and about what it thinks it is or wants. This is where a person strays into imitating an animal, not actively being a spirit. Doesn’t a dog have its favorite toy, a cat its favorite food, and a horse its favorite post? Look at your favorite things and realize you are defining your spirit as your self, the thing you must overcome. Examine how habitual you really are; how much you are on auto-pilot throughout the day; and how much you really try to comfort your self.

Call Yourself 666-SELFHow did Self get a bad name? Quick answer: it’s operated by Satan. Just as the Holy Spirit is a person’s direct line to God, the Self is the direct line to Satan. When a person makes a decision to start really phoning Home, he can stop dialing 666-SELF. He’s not aware that he’s programmed it on auto-dial as he asks himself, “What do I do? What do I want?” Ringie-ding-ding. How do we know this is Satan’s number? Man was created on the sixth day, and over time his number triple-inflated as did his ego, because his life became about himself, as he made himself first, last and everything in between, 666. He lost his Creator’s number, a simple one really, “1”. The Creator is the beginning and end, the ONE, there’s nothing after, and especially not the suffix “world”.

So here we are. Sentenced to earth because we wanted to listen to Lucifer. Well, we get to hear him loud and clear now, all the time, with this Self-link wired to him. It’s hell. We wanted another chance to prove we’d be faithful to God only, and listen to only Him from then on. We were asked to prove it. Then, we find ourselves still believing Satan’s lies and pretend to be deaf, which blinds us, and then makes us dumb. Dumb animals, who hear “we are only human”; and it gives us a chance “to be ourselves” and find all our favorite things. The more human we are, the more we want all this worldly stuff, thus it should be easy to see that the elites are very human, perhaps the most human of all, which means they aren’t shape shifting, unless their weight fluctuates from how much food they consume or how many drugs they take. They also aren’t the greys, well maybe Dorian Greys.

Again, here we are. Hard-wired to Satan through Self, and it’s a pretty reliable land-line. But we are also internally connected to our Creator through the Holy Spirit, it’s cellular, a telepathic communication-energy wave.

We can also look at these connections using an analogy of a computer. The human body is a complex computer with a main drive and two servers, where the individual consciousness is the soul, represented by the mainframe. One server is G(o)od and the other D/evil. Which server an individual consciousness relies on determines if the operating system is Spirit-driven or Self-driven. Both are motivators, but one means life and one means death. A soul that is spirit-driven will be able to drink from the Holy Grail, Immortality; but a soul who relies on himself remains human and will die upon Judgment that “that’s all he wanted to be”. And Satan will sing, “Ra-ra-re” and place a “sould” sign on his mind, because man bought the idea that he was only human or that life was just about his human experience. When all a person thinks about is his Self, he has a mark of the beast on his forehead (on his mind).

The other option is having the Seal of God, which means a person learns to communicate WITH, listen to, and follow only God’s commands, advice and guidance in his daily walk and talk. A person decides to Be and Act like he wants to become, an eternal spirit, or angel again. The spirit is tied to feeling and intuition from our Creator. Spirit is calm and discerning, and operates by a quiet “knowing”. God nudges and softly guides. It is Satan who pushes and yells in someone’s head. The self is tied to emotion through Satan’s need for someone to act quick and irrational, fight or flight, basically so that he can create a big mess in one’s life. He constantly tells the self what to believe. But don’t worry, he’ll be there to advise on how to fix it, then it becomes a vicious circle of self-help. This is why it is essential to be in Spirit-mode, where a person can be objective and a passer-by to all the chaos, roadblocks and madness in this Hell. He can recognize Satan’s games, then learn to monitor which thoughts and instilled by God or which thoughts are transmitted by Satan. From that perspective, he should be able to make wise decisions.

Why does Satan have this power? He did not submit to becoming Adams and Eves like we did. Yes, he was cast here too, but didn’t enter a human body. God granted him permission to test us. The kicker is he only can transmit thoughts; which means humans DO all the actions. If they didn’t DO them, Satan wouldn’t have any arms and legs, no power to DO anything physically. The biggest example of this is his synagogue of elites. By their free-will choice, they believe him and physically do what he says. The ritualistic ones know they are talking with Satan, and do all kinds of unholy things. Then there are ones who are just lost in them-selves, making a killing off everyone’s misfortune, with no clue Satan is the one motivating them, with material bonuses, and he convinces them that greed is good. Beware though, because Michael Douglas probably earned himself throat-cancer for promoting that idea in the film “Wall Street”. Then, there’s us, who think we are just human and get on the tread mill, take our daily bread of distraction, and watch the dollar bills fly out the window. And Satan’s got our ear, convincing us this is how it is.

On the bright side, we were given a most wonderful example through Christ who came here to show us how to overcome Satan and spiritually be in control of self. He did it! Satan couldn’t con Jesus into forgetting who He was, or revel in being human, or bow to him for possessions. Christ should have remained our example, but we forgot the best part of the Message: What He told us to do and What he did. Now, it seems we get to hear Satan in surround sound. What Satan wants isn’t going to happen though. He and his synagogue want God and Christ to just go away and leave the world to them. They don’t think they are doing anything wrong anymore (really). Satan’s convinced them they think they make fine gods, all by them selves, and they do what they think must be done. We should have no other gods before the I AM, remember? …which brings up an expression, “people have the governments they deserve.”

What we need to understand is the human EGO will never accept Christ or a true spiritual path. Satan will never accept Christ and he’s going to oppose us accepting Christ through our egos. He’s even managed to turn spirituality into a SELF quest-ion. Why did Christ say to crucify (control) self, self-will, daily? He certainly knew it was tied to the enemy within. It is this EGO-self that a soul must fight on an individual basis. Once a person wins in the battlefield in the mind, Satan’s connection to them just becomes theater. The easiest way to see this is by observing someone whose life is chaos. It is a sure sign he is not following a spiritual path and also a warning to return to one. Most don’t get it, playing the victim because Satan tells them everyone is out to get them or life just isn’t fair. Satan will also use this chaos as distractions for someone who is on a spiritual path. They’ll come out of the woodwork when a person decides to travel the good path, because Satan will say “game on”.

And just like in the movie “Revolver”, the only way to become smarter is to play a smarter opponent. Satan is smarter than us right now, only because we believe him. But we can outsmart him, once we realize he continues to use all the same moves, tactics, fears, and imaginations… over and over again, day after day, year after year. They WORK. In a sense, he’s got our number too and simply hits redial. He’ll expose all his moves, which if we examine our individual selves closely, he only has a few. We simply neutralize each, one by one. In doing so, we overcome. This is why studying the Bible helps. It keeps us focused on the Truth, the Word, and Life. When we are in this frame of mind, we hear Father’s guidance more easily. Also spend time with Father in a quiet place alone. Satan hates scripture. Use it on him, mentally. He cannot stand talk about God and Christ. This is reflected in how his minions, or agents, try to get everyone to shut up about Them.

In “Revolver”, the lead character finally understood who was talking to him and overcame the voice within, so much so he had no more fear, not even fear of death. It is the spirit that can get to this point, not the self-ego. It’s time to put the spirit in control. For instance, how many “bad” habits do we have that we just can’t give up? It is our human animal that has addictions, not our spirits. Addictions come in all shapes and sizes, like sexual perversions, collections, acquisitions, idolizing, shopping, food and drugs. They are just about anything we devote ourselves to, or Love with a capital L. Reveling in all these human materialistic things does not advance our souls, but it does provide ego self-satisfaction. We cannot serve two masters, God and mammon. There has to come a point where a soul consciousness must overcome the human-animal weaknesses, impulses and justifications for remaining ego-bound. And given the time we’re in, it really becomes a matter of life and death. Stop trying to overcome the bad habits and OVERCOME them, just as Yoda says in Star Wars, “Try not; do, or do not. There is no try.” Identify what to do or not do; and follow through. Actively and decidedly turn away from the bad habits (and you know which ones those are); then adopt good habits like singing the New Song. Do you want to be spirit to achieve immortality with Christ and be with Father again, or do you want to be human with Satan and die?

Think of the process this way. Say someone systematically steals and lies everyday, for years. Maybe he half-heartedly stops for one or two days, but the habit returns so easily into routine again. Then, one day real Judgement comes, where all thieves and liars are to be executed as was written in the Heavens and he just didn’t care to care. But he begs for his life although he knew the punishment. At that point, he promises never to steal and lie again. Is he to be believed? Where is the proof he wouldn’t do them again? There is none, because he, himself, decided not to care to really change, and that will be known in the Heavens.

It’s time to care. It’s time to overcome. It’s time to know this is a struggle to fight Satan, but it must be done daily, within and without. If a person is sincere and honest, he will be helped and guided. If he controls his self, his ego, God will control Satan for him. God only has to think someone is protected and he is. His protection is for those who love and obey Him only. If you are going to fight Satan, stop listening to yourself. Listen to God, then DO it His Way. Let your spirit shine by asking God what is His Will for you to do! Be Christ-like and dial “1”.
