It Has Never Been About God Versus Man

It’s always been about how God loves Man:

There is no fear in love [dread does not exist]. But perfect (complete, full-grown) love drives out fear, because fear involves [the expectation of divine] punishment, so the one who is afraid [of God’s judgment] is not perfected in love [has not grown into a sufficient understanding of God’s love’]. We love, because He first loved us. 1 Jn. 4:18, 19. AMP

God loved us first. He created us in love; and He loves us now and for all eternity.

Sometimes, it’s about Man versus God because we have misconceptions about Him, which then breeds falsehoods that we believe about ourselves. It is when we become aware of these false divisions within, (especially those we think separate us from our Creator) that we come to a place where we can finally begin to be set free.

Freedom commences when we put a stop to the tumultuous cyclone that we subconsciously cloak our lives with – running around trying to do things that we think will improve ourselves or remold what we think we are. In this endless boondoggle, we lose ourselves in meaningless ‘doings’ instead of just being who God created us to be.

But we can’t do that if we don’t take the time to nurture our God-created self, which begins when we see and rise above what the world’s truth tries to impress upon us. All of the evil in the world is produced by the thoughts and actions of the collective subconscious of its inhabitants.

It is this same collective bottled up psyche, that peppers those who might entertain another way of being, with swirling thoughts of ‘conformity or else,’  – to keep these would-be ‘free thinkers’ in shackles by showering them with a deluded mass media and an educational process corrupted by government to bend the minds of the students into becoming a co-opted pool of non-thinkers.

We are lied to incessantly by those who choose to follow the god of this world. Lies breed violence – both towards others and against ourselves. Eventually, the pain of submitting to the world drives us towards false comforts – busyness, distractions and addictions, all of which add to the death of the free-thinking soul.

We must wake up from this nightmare, which can only happen when we return to our true selves. We need to turn ourselves towards Love (God) and become aware of how to tap into His presence on a continual basis, both to experience His love and to know and live out His purposes, which is the only path to true peace and joy.

It is our spiritual duty to learn to know God and how to identify ourselves in Him. When we do this in faith, we can exist in His love and walk along a path where we can spread this good news to others. We can chip away at the stranglehold our adversary has over those who have been blinded by ruthless and loveless domination, by helping them feel the love in the face of a world that denies it.

After all, you can’t just keep this love for yourself. Otherwise, you’ll be like the servant who received a talent (sum of money) and instead of investing it, he put it in a hole in the ground, more fearful of losing it rather than growing it for his employer. (Mt. 25:14 – 26.) Jesus told this parable to illustrate the following God principle:

“For to everyone who has [and values his blessings and gifts from God, and has used them wisely], more will be given, and [he will be richly supplied so that] he will have an abundance; but from the one who does not have [because he has ignored or disregarded his blessings and gifts from God], even what he does have will be taken away.” Mt. 25:29 AMP

To love is to share, yes? And when we live in God, accept His gifts (the foremost being Christ), and share them so that as many others as we encounter have the potential to receive God’s gifts as well, we will have been accepted – received His salvation, through our union with Him.

At the foundation of this peace from God, is the peace that He laid in the cornerstone of your being; and it is found when you recognize who you truly are and are meant to be, in Him. There can be no peace with anyone until you make peace with yourself, which comes by seeing yourself in the divine light of Christ.

As we’ve looked at before, God is in the business of reconciliation – so that we reconcile with Him, with all others and with ourselves.

In that healing, you will have achieved the peace that comes from finally being able to be yourself, wearing the mantle of sainthood that is conferred upon all of God’s children.

Then, there will be no more forms of  _____ v. _____ …

For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood to be received by faith. Rm. 3:22 – 25. ESV

For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we we’re all baptized into one body – Jews or Greeks, slaves or free – and all were made to drink of one Spirit. 1 Cor. 12:12 ESV

…that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. 1 Cor. 12:25 – 27. NKJV

May we keep this in mind and come together at the start of the new year in this country under God…

Goodnight and God bless.

The Devil May Get His Hooks In Your Children

In our last post, Mom And Dad Are Working For The Devil, we followed the unconscious parents’ indoctrination of the message Satan created in the heads of Adam and Eve that they subsequently passed onto their children, who passed it on to their children, and so on throughout the ages.

The message was that Adam and Eve were created with a flaw, and the ultimate outcome was that they perceived themselves as unlovable and unacceptable.

Many parents do the same thing by teaching their children to conform to the ways of the world. This conflicts with what the God-nature of the child feels is right in his or her hearts; yet in order to try to get that love and acceptance from their parents, they attempt to become someone else who is compliant in those worldly ways.

They inculcate themselves with the ever-growing laundry list from their parents until this list takes on a life of its own. You see, these enormously creative human beings construct a new personality (ego) within themselves that encompass the laws of man. Ego’s job is to continually remind the child how to conform to ‘the list’ so that they can get some love and be protected from pain. It is a defensive cocoon against the outside world.

Ego is a creation for compensating for a lack that never existed. It is driven by fear and desire, and it mimics the voice of the devil himself – with his twin spirits of rejection and condemnation. This ‘voice’ starts out benevolent enough, instructing the child in how to comply with the ways of the world so that he or she doesn’t get punished and rejected for behavior that is unacceptable to its inhabitants. Life for the child becomes more about survival than about living.

But then it takes a dark turn. This ‘protector’ feeds on the power the child has given it and begins to resent him or her because it knows its existence is reliant upon its host’s perceived need for it. Ego knows that if the child were to return to its essence (God), the light of God would wipe the darkness out.

So what to do? It relentlessly reminds the child of its (imaginary) flaws so that they feel that the voice is necessary to survive in this ‘dangerous’ world. Indeed, the voice begins to sound a lot like an angry mom or dad. But worse, the child begins to identify that voice in their head as its own voice, so it doesn’t question the lies that ego spews forth. He or she forgot that they created this ego. The devil has set his hooks…

You too were a child. There’s a good possibility some of this mental construct is in you. Don’t blame yourself, you were too young to know what was happening and wouldn’t have any idea how to protect yourself if you did.

Mom and Dad aren’t the only culprits here. It’s just that your first exposure to this mental degradation comes from them.

You’re then pushed into schools that are solely invested in forwarding their socialization as per the dictates of the government’s agenda to get children to conform to mediocrity and to rob them of free thought. (Furthermore, they are filled with other kids who are experiencing the evil onslaughts of their own egos and projecting them outwards towards their fellow students.)

Should they not conform, the government / school arm belittles them, tries to drug them into a stupor, and isolates them by sending them to ‘continuation schools.’

[Don’t fool yourselves. Government by man (Babylon) is an evil necessity that God allows to reduce chaos until all the people who desire an eternity of love will return to Him and submit to the rule of the government of Christ. Look at what the devil told Jesus:

Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” Mt. 4:8, 9. NKJV

Satan cannot give anything away that was not given to him.]

Moreover, (at least in the U.S.) we have a media that fawns all over Babylon, never calling it to account over its nefarious intrusions. What they spew is whitewashed by that same government that abhors family values, hates the concept of family itself, and re-writes or ignores the word of God, as it demands your worship. This is the same media that sells human tragedy and criminal behavior as the human norm.

The final outcome? We (our children as well as ourselves) are lied to on every side. Yet nobody talks about it. We all try to hide our non-existent ‘bad parts’ – trying to change (‘I’ve got to improve!) by oppressing these illusions (‘I can’t let them see the real me!’), seeking a love that we cannot find because we’ve forgotten what it looks like, on account of we’ve stopped loving ourselves.

Our children pretend that all is well, but they know what they speak aloud is a lie. The devil sits back now, satisfied that another child bites the dust through his or her own thought processes that suck the life out of them.

Are you okay with that?

God gives each of His children a unique gift, one He wants them to share with the world on His behalf. It is through that sharing that each child grows into what He wants it to be. They become that by exercising their child-like faith and trust. When they do that, they are models of His kingdom:

Allow the little ones to come to Me, and do not forbid or restrain or hinder them, for of such [as these] is the kingdom of heaven composed. Mt. 19:14 AMP.

We as parents have a special stewardship, to the best of our ability, to help our children keep their God-given qualities – to stand in the gap, as a bridge for them, so that they can break away from how the world tries to mold them and return to the shining light of themselves. We need to help them to appreciate their uniqueness and to grow into it instead of trying to imitate someone else.

The best way we can do that is to make the same journey ourselves – to regain consciousness by returning to our God-essence:

‘Thus says the LORD of hosts, “Return to Me,” declares the LORD of hosts, “that I may return to you,” says the LORD of hosts.’ Zech. 1:3 NASB

We need to have an enormously loving, exalting presence in our children’s lives – forever reminding them of how special they (and everyone around them) are. (Big hint: We must own this for ourselves first, before we can pass it on to them.)

They must know that they’re perfect just the way they are, that there was never anything wrong with them, there is nothing wrong with them now, and there never will be anything wrong with them in the future. This builds self-respect and their acknowledgment of the perfection of God in them.

If a child has a need, we must meet it or painstakingly explain why their need may not be appropriate – all the while reassuring them that we love them dearly and that the denial of that need is for their greater good.

Let them know that you understand they may be sad or angry over that denial, that it’s normal, and that you will not judge them for those feelings but will help them work through them. Make them aware of the Godly hierarchy of conscious parental authority that you must exercise to nurture them, simultaneously offering them the opportunity to question your motivations. That is how they learn.

We must teach our children that we sometimes make bad choices and coach them in how to minimize that – simultaneously affirming that who they are remains unsullied. There may be bad things they’ve done, but they themselves are not, teaching them the way to forgiveness through Jesus Christ.

Once they realize there is no reason to reject themselves, they will know there is also no reason to create a false persona. They will also not be as vulnerable to their perceived rejection from others. When our children understand that external rejection only comes from the perpetrator’s pain, they can come from a place of compassion and forgiveness.

Along these same lines we let our children know that there is no failure. There are only outcomes that provide lessons to be learned – signposts that bring them closer to success. It’s not personal and does not devalue them. It’s only an indication that a certain path did not bring the desired result, but it was a victory nonetheless as it opens the way to the next opportunity to meet that challenge. Just like life.

Failure is an external event that happens to them but they control what happens in them. As long as they push through the fear, remain teachable and stay willing to take the next step, they will succeed. The only real failure comes when you stop trying.

Can you see the godly armor they will construct?

Most of all help your children connect with God. Get them into His word and teach them to love and serve His every living creation.

Imagine the victory if we, the parents, did the same thing for ourselves?

Praise God for the road to victory!
Goodnight and God bless.
