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. A spiritual climb that will take you one step closer to knowing The Most High Father and His Son (John 17:3).

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”.
