Hidden Gems

Inspired By God

Forgiveness and Compassion

Nehemiah 9:17 “And they refused to listen and did not remember Thy wondrous deeds which thou hadst performed among them; So they became stubborn and appointed a leader to return to their slavery in Egypt. But thou art a God of forgiveness, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness; And Thou didst not forsake them.”

To be mindful of the love and compassion of God is where we begin to grow into a strong tower of God’s character. God’s forgiveness is how we know that He loves us. God corrects those whom He loves and this is how we as God’s people grow in stature and wisdom.

I have learned about God’s forgiveness throughout my life from my experiences. It is hard to try and live a perfect life. Just when we think we have it all figured out, something changes and we learn something new. Relationships demand a lot of attention and unconditional love. We know that we are not always going to say or do the right thing, and therefore we must remember to dwell upon the love that brought us together in the first place. Forgiving one another and moving forward is how we make true progress.

Experiences help us to know how to not be insensitive to one another. Being sensitive is what I strive to do all of the time. Sometimes more than others, but the bottom line is that it remains to be a constant in my life and my relationships. God’s compassion is what I attempt to demonstrate in my relationships. For there is no greater love than that which is built from God’s forgiveness and compassion.

I continue to hope and pray to be the best husband and father, built up in the fullness of God.

Amos 5:14-15 “Seek good and not evil, that you may live; and thus may the Lord God of hosts be with you, just as you have said! Hate evil, love good, and establish justice in the gate! Perhaps the Lord God of hosts may be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.”

As I read this scripture I am brought into a new light that brings to my attention the meaning of life. I am brought into a light that promotes good works and faith, doing away with evil. The entire Bible speaks about doing away with evil thoughts and works, as we are to be seeking to establish each and every day…If we seek God through Christ then we will be rewarded with the calm peaceful nature of the Holy Spirit.

Of all the challenges that we face as humans, overcoming the evil of this world is possibly the greatest challenge of all. By dwelling upon peaceful resolution we are able to establish ways of living that direct us away from violence and anger. I see that violence and anger are so predominant in our world that sometimes it is hard to cope. The love of God overcomes both and is to be at the center of our heart.

When we face challenging situations in life we are brought into new understanding. My new understanding has come from events that I have experienced and will experience over the course of my life. I have learned how to not make the same mistakes twice and to live a life of love and promise. Love and promise are so great to instill the hope and reassurance that we need to make it through life.

My entire life now revolves around family and close friends. Life is about relationships and by making relationships loving and positive we are doing what God would have us to do. The more relationships that we can have that are true and loyal, the more promise we may attain.

Life is not perfect, but by relating to one another we begin to find peace in life.

Romans 5:2-5 “…through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God. And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”

May the hope described in the scripture above constantly provide us the reassurance that we need to carry on when times get tough. We do not give up, but instead we stay the course and know that God is in control. There are many times that we feel like giving up, as times get to be challenging. But we do not give in to the opposition or our adversary. We overcome by being strong of mind.

Let us stand as a full body by which all of our strength is in tact. The body is built to withstand troubled times. May we always focus upon the hope that will carry us on…

James 1:17 “Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, or shifting shadow.”

As a nation we are to build upon truth. By building upon false truth we encounter problems. Knowing what is concrete is critical to development. May we always seek to develop a bigger sense of purpose and truth in all that we do. The rewards are much greater when we incorporate a sense of purpose into our work. Helping others to identify their own purpose is where we make progress and instill growth. May we all recognize the Father of lights who is the same every day, and who teaches us  how to build.

As we look at the world we see that life is not perfect. However, it is critical to recognize how the theme of our life is what people recall about each one of us. The vision that we leave behind is what people will remember. By putting our work towards transmitting a message to those who have been searching for answers we know that we are doing God’s work. Life consists of many relationships. We are responsible for helping people to find understanding. God’s word helps us to find the answers that we need. By simply putting the Bible on the shelf we miss the true meaning of life. By ignoring God we miss learning how to become like Him in character and wisdom.

Proverbs 21:1-3 “The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the Lord; He turns it wherever He wishes. Every man’s way is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the hearts. To do righteousness and justice is desired by the Lord rather than sacrifice.”

 

Psalm 199:130 “The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.”

Proverbs 14:29 “He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.”

Colossians 4:6 “Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.”

Proverbs 2:2-5 “So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; if thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.”

Discovering a hidden treasure may be identified in many ways. In God’s mind, wisdom through words of light is the true hidden treasure. Discovering her is how we become one with truth. I believe that in the end of days part of the hidden treasure to be discovered will be brought to light through words written for us to understand in full God’s plan. This is why it is important to search for the words that may be able to connect the dots for us as humans. For it is written about in the Book Of Revelation of what we may expect in the end of days. If we are asking ourselves how might we expect for the events to unfold, we need to be searching for the words that provide understanding and truth. We ought to be searching for the hidden treasure which is an oracle of wisdom.

God provides us with the knowledge and we are to embrace His truth. God gives us the patience to endure whatever tribulation that we might face. God also gives us grace in order to provide the answers that He desires. It is our hope that we are to find the answers that we have longed for by searching the shelves for the hidden treasure that will open our eyes to the truth of Jesus Christ.

Romans 5:1-5 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: by whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.”

1 Peter 5:10 “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.”

Being established in righteousness is key in our pathway to God. In order to access the Holy Spirit we must first be established in righteousness. Knowing that tribulations only strengthen our soul gives us the reassurance that God will overcome in the end. By facing tribulations we build patience and endurance to run the race by which we have been called. Therefore, we do not get discouraged but instead are reassured of God’s love for us.

By living a life full of confidence and discernment we know that we may obtain success in life. For we may even begin to understand the meaning of the phrase “success from failure.” For if we do not attempt to attain success how may we ever know the meaning of success? It is our job to seek out our calling by which to build upon. This is where we understand true success from righteousness. Our works towards God will be justified by pursuing what we love to do. For we are all blessed with different gifts of knowledge.

 

1 Peter 1:13-15 “Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: but as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Proverbs 12:15 “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes; but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.”

Bearing the wisdom of God is how we evaluate our decisions in life. As grow older we continue to learn lessons each day on how to become more like God. Giving people second chances is demonstrating God’s love. By evaluating each person based upon their heart we are able to choose the correct relationships to incorporate into our daily life. Remembering that the obstacles that people may encounter can be more severe than our own is seeing through God’s eyes. Corrective learning is a key tool that can be used to better our society. The more teachers we have that want to give back the better the world will be as a whole.

Having been through challenges of my own I have learned that life is not perfect and that sometimes the people who are most in tune carry the most burden. I have increased my discernment in this area of life. Yet I still maintain the idea of being open minded with people. Listening and learning but not necessarily always agreeing is where I discover new ideas on how to communicate my message to the world. The message that I carry is to empower people from a spiritual stand point. This is the duty of all. Not to judge but to empower at all times. If one person can bear the ability to not judge what we may not understand from a spiritual stand point, then we are able to learn and make progress towards God. Standing by the full context of God’s truth is essential to gaining discernment. Let us embrace the truth and find it easy to discuss amongst ourselves. Faith was never intended to be a burden to anyone.

 

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 “Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.”

The premier teaching of Christianity. An undying expression of Jesus’ doctrine of heavenly love. More potent for the building of the Church than any, or all, of the various manifestations of God’s power. Love, the Church’s most effective weapon. Love, without which all the various gifts of the Spirit are of no avail. Love, the essence of God’s nature. Love, the perfection of human character, Love, the most powerful ultimate force in the universe.

Even if I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, even if I give my body to be burned, if I have not love, it profits me nothing. What a thought provoking passage! The gift of speaking like an angel, of prophesying, of having all knowledge, of faith that moves mountains, of charity to the last dollar, even martyrdom, all of no use unless we have the Spirit of Christian Love. What a call to self examination! (Halley’s Bible Handbook pg. 598)

By embarking on a journey to discover true love we are blessed by receiving spiritual gifts that allow us to see the kingdom of God. For the first love that we have come to know it that of God. God loved us first and asks that we fulfill His commandment in loving one another. There are so many gifts that we may attain in our journey of falling in love. Of all the gifts that God asks us to use, love is the most important. Doing away with immorality is learning to love unconditionally. Expecting the second coming of Jesus and discovering His presence is where we may experience God’s greatest love.

Romans 15:1-3 “Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to his edification. For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached Thee fell upon Me.”

Heroism is an act of selflessness on behalf of others in order to defend those that cannot defend themselves. Christ exemplified heroism by dedicating himself and giving His life in order that the world would live. Heroes are what the world needs more of. We need more people serving and expressing their ideas as well as opinions in order to inspire a revolution of heroism.

Much of what we see on the television and watch in movies is intended to be based upon heroism. For me watching movies of heroism inspire me to be more motivated and more inspirational. Through acts of valor we see much of our military becoming heroes. We need more heroes dedicated to saving lives right here in the United States of America. Each and every day we awake and make a choice as to whether we want to be a hero or if we want to sit on the sidelines and watch. It is our utmost duty to reach out to those that need our help and to inspire others to do so as well. For each morning we have a choice of living out the day with all the characteristics of the bright morning star. We are all to be stars shining brightly for all to see. May it be that we carry more light each and every day as we love and grow with one another.

By bearing the weaknesses of one another and using our strength to carry others, we are pleasing God. May we strive to instill truth and to motivate one another to carry those who are less fortunate and need the help. For this is what God desires, to see us grow the body of Christ into a stronger living and breathing organism full of gifts and wisdom.

1 Corinthians 12:8-11 “For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.”

It is the responsibility of all to recognize the gifts that they have been blessed with, and to incorporate those gifts into their lives, using them to carry out acts of heroism. Heroism is God’s character and who greater than Jesus is to show us that example?

 

The marriage of the minds is where we begin to understand true love and predestination. The marriage that we as Christians understand is not of this world. The marriage that I am referring to is between Jesus and His bride. This marriage may not yet be seen but is real and just might possibly be taking place, as the times that we live in are telling us. To be aware of this marriage and union between the two is the secret to decoding the last book of the Bible, the Revelation.

Considering the marriage that must take place in order for all things to be fulfilled according to God’s purpose is to be in tune with the mind of God. Thinking of a marriage that is bigger than the world is where we begin to comprehend the mind of God. If Jesus were to come again a second time, how might we expect that marriage to take place. I believe that by seeking Him out, all might discover Jesus in pure and absolute truth.

The marriage of the mind is how we might expect to become a part of this union. No matter where we are in the world, God is omnipotent and omniscient. In the end of times this will be the key to understanding a second coming of Christ.

Taking chances is a part of life. Following our heart sometimes requires that we take a leap of faith and ask that God take over. As we live our lives bearing all of the qualities of the fruit of the spirit we know that we cannot go wrong. Love demands that we take chances to ensure that we do not lose what is most precious and true. Our job is to ensure that the love that we bear is blessed by God. If this is true, then no one can take away that love.

Chances are situations that demand looking to our higher power, God. Making wise decisions is a part of knowing the difference between right and wrong. If we truly look to God in all of our decisions then we bear a clear conscience. Living without guilt is what God desires for us. We live and we learn. We are to be morally in tact with God’s spirit as our guide.

Through prayer and perseverance we are capable of walking through the doors of opportunity that God has placed in our lives. If the heart is right then we must follow our heart in order that we do not lose touch with what is most important.

By living and abiding by the structure that our spiritual awakening has created we see what it means to live a healthy balanced lifestyle. Healthy work ethic and healthy relationships are what make up our lives. By striving for clarity in our work as it is carefully directed towards a goal that is meant to carry on our legacy we understand that our fingerprints on the world will not be forgotten. Through character and resilience we set our goals higher than the world. Relationships are what make up the world and the circle of life. By striving towards increasing the glue that holds our relationships together we are reinforcing the building blocks of how the world came to be. In the beginning, God had a direct relationship with His Son before the world came to be, for He was the Son who would give His life for the world. This relationship between God and His Son is our vision for the entire world. Each day we are to become more and more like God and His Son. Greater love hath no man than this…

By focusing upon living in the here and now we are able to better understand the mind of God. God desired for us to seek Him in all things in order that we may discover all of the answers that we have longed for throughout our lives. Living in the present in order to better address the problematic issues of today is where we discover resolution and closure.

Discovering answers is the key to life. Discovery is what each individual, whether they know it or not, seeks on a daily basis. Questions that have demanded answers are constantly on our minds. Life is a map that we are to discover through God’s spirit. God has mapped out his truth and the answers on His Son. His Son does not desire to hold us back, but rather to lead us into a kingdom that we could not perceive before this spiritual awakening.

By perceiving the world in the here and now, we are able to see a new world that God has promised us since from the beginning of time. Our job is to embrace this new sense of awareness and awakening that has caused us to tingle with the feeling that God is standing right beside us. Living in the here and now allows us to enjoy all of the moments rather than miss out on the special gifts that God brings into our life.

Romans 5:2-5 “…through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God. And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”

May the hope described in the scripture above constantly provide us the reassurance that we need to carry on when times get tough. We do not give up, but instead we stay the course and know that God is in control. There are many times that we feel like giving up, as times get to be challenging. But we do not give in to the opposition or our adversary. We overcome by being strong of mind.

Let us stand as a full body by which all of our strength is in tact. The body is built to withstand troubled times. May we always focus upon the hope that will carry us on…

May we always seek to develop a bigger sense of purpose and truth in all that we do. The rewards are much greater when we incorporate a sense of purpose into our work. Helping others to identify their own purpose is where we make progress and instill growth. May we all recognize the Father of lights who is the same every day, and who teaches us  how to build.

For we are all blessed with different gifts of knowledge.

 

As we look into new ways of building a foundation that will thrive in the sight of God we must first  be able to perceive the problems that we currently face.

The fact is that God asked that we abide by His Commandments and not be of the world. We live in a world where people are constantly seeking out other way of rationalizing their behaviors. We live in a world where people do not have time or the desire to establish a set of ways that will make life easier for all. The reason that God ordained the Ten Commandments was to make life simple and to keep us out of harms way. By paying careful attention to the reasons for why nations have been created we see that most have not attempted to follow the nature of God. So, in conclusion we see that many foundations have been built upon a very unstable foundation and shaky ground. The pillars that the world has created are not the pillars that God intended for us to live by. The world forgot what was true and just according to God, and the world adapted in a way that was due to pressure from the beast and the false prophet written about in the Revelation to John.

Now that we know this, we see that we have a solemn duty to God to seek the truth. It is our job for the sake of the human race to instill values and goals that are pleasing to God, through Christ. For the world this should be an exciting time. A time in which priorities and actions are transformed along with our minds. By changing the heart of the world, we are able to understand that with God’s blessing we will be able to achieve our goal of peace and justice across the globe. He only asks that we follow His careful instruction and prevent old ways from prevailing in this time of tribulation. We are to seek to be the beacon of light that God put us on this earth to be. We do not prioritize anything before Christ. We protect what is sacred and true. We become ministers and saints, as opposed to persecutors and savages. This is the difference between the ways of God and the ways of the world. We must be aware of methods of attacks that force those who seek to instill truth to submit to the god of this world. Our minds must be in tune and we must see clearly through the fog.

As a nation and a world we are responsible for establishing all things through Jesus Christ. We will not be like the foolish man who built his house upon the sand. We will be wise and competent in building our house upon the rock that provides safety and reassurance. Jesus is the cornerstone set in the world that has been blanketed by sin, crucified by the world without God. We must now recognize the dilemma that we face and must change the world in order that God prevails in the end. For with God all things are possible and our worries do not exist. The coming together of the body of Christ in the second coming of Christ is our open door for change that the world has never seen. This is our job and our responsibility to one another. Let us not disregard God’s humble request in speaking in truth and living out our duty to Him who sets us free.

As we evaluate one of the most carefully thought out decisions regarding what the requirements might be for going to war, we must think as God. By reading and studying God’s Word we are able to discover hidden guidance in decisions such as these. War is not commanded by God. War criteria is to be based upon God’s law. God has never desired that any man on this earth live with blood on his hands. For this is the worst feeling for a man or woman to live having known that they have taken the life of an individual. Man was not created for murder. Man was not to become the murderer. This was a commandment from God. It is critical that we understand the necessary actions by a leader, placed in a situation where they must decide what action to take. Do we follow the evidence of technology, or do we ask God for sound wisdom? This is the true dilemma. I believe that face time is essential to resolving these matters. Meeting with a man to discern his state of mind and to discover the truth is what God asks of us. This is a key part of being unafraid and wise into making the right decision. We do not attempt to judge based upon a premise where heavy political agenda may be the core influence. We are smarter than that. We are renewed by the Spirit and peace which surpasses all understanding. We must be careful not to become the enemy. For in that moment, our world will be turned upside down. A man’s word is his bond. A man’s demeanor is a good representation of his spirit. Discern a man’s spirit and make a decision on how to help the situation, as opposed to worsening the situation.

Revelation 19:11-12 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and wage war. 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. ”

Now, the key here is to be unafraid. In this piece of scripture we see that eyes are the key…By reading a man’s eyes we are able to see the truth. Discussion is how we obtain resolve and closure. Jesus teaches us to test the spirits…A man of God will test an evil person by careful examination of their responses, especially in reference to God’s truth, which allows us to recognize evil.

As we read through the book of Luke we see that during the second coming of Christ many crisis events will take place. Nation will rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom, great earthquakes, sickness and fearful signs from heaven will be seen by all. By noticing the events that we see today we are able to conclude that much of the world is lost. The question is: “How lost are we?”

The fearful signs that the world ought to be paying attention to are those of outright doubt to the existence of God through Jesus. During the time of testing, the world will not necessarily see or recognize Jesus until the Father chooses to reveal Him in His divine state. The questioning of God and the sun rising in the west is a critical piece of the puzzle. We now see the reality of the pillars of Islam in our country. Decision making is an important aspect of the signs that are conducted from heaven. Decision making is God’s way of discerning those who are diligently seeking to establish His ways. A time of testing will be conducted by God, allowing for certain powers to become magnified in order to see if people will get to back to their first love. If people are not familiar with the term “first love” by now then what shall we say about this nation? About this world?

The one constant truth that we live by is that during the perilous times, those who are with Christ simply think beyond the people of the world, for the gifts of those with Christ are not of the world. Not a hair on their head will be harmed, for their protection and security is within the walls of the fortress, Jesus.

For the time being, getting by is contentment for those who understand what must happen.

As we carefully read through the Bible we are able to observe connections throughout, from beginning to end. God carefully took the time to tie it all together in order that we would be able to understand it all. Reading in full context is what God expects from us in order that we continue to grow in His Word.

One of the hidden truths that I have been studying lately is in reference to Luke chapter 21.

Luke 21:1-4 “And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury. And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. And he said, Of a truth say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all: For all these have of their abundance cast into the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.”

The meaning of this piece of scripture is symbolism. The symbolism used here is to exemplify the true demonstration of what “giving” means to God. God does not seek the people who give and do nothing in regards to studying His Word. God seeks for us, as the widow, to give our whole selves in order that He may enlighten us into His kingdom, which bears no monetary gain. This symbolic lesson of the Bible is so critical to understanding tithing and contributions to God. To think of the parable more in regards to offering her Son as opposed to monetary possessions is what God is attempting to demonstrate. The coins may be understood as two children, and by offering her two sons to God, she was rewarded. The offering of a child to become a pupil of God is what we are to be seeking to achieve. Following an offering in this way, we begin to see blessings that are not of this world.

To fully understand how we may reference the widow of Revelation in regards to deep symbolism we may begin to connect the dots by referencing Luke 21. You see, the widow of Revelation is consumed by material possessions and retains control of people by money. Money is the reason that people never see or understand God. The demise of society has become what we created, currency. The ability of evil to use money to remain in control is the dilemma. It is critical to understanding what our nation and all nations across the world have become…We are a world composed of material possessions and are forced to rely on money for our survival. True survival is understanding God and what He asks of us. God asks that we learn to no longer rely on money for survival, but that we rely on the gifts that we possess to help one another overcome the opposition.

By carefully thinking of the flip side of the parable of the “widow’s mite” we see that God has shown us that the strength of a widow or any person (without Christ) is to enslave people to a system that was not created by God. The reason that He wrote the Revelation was to demonstrate the truth of the current state by which we are currently living.  The power of the widow in Revelation is to hold people accountable to “it” by forcing people to work for the system, created and established by pillars that God never spoke. This is where the confusion and power was both abused and this is where the world got lost.

 

In God’s mind, the idea of recreation is at hand. The idea of recreation is the simplistic understanding that we have all that we need, as it was given to us by God. As parents, teachers, and ministers we are responsible for teaching the basic concepts that apply to overcoming the world. We are to be instructing and teaching individuals how to survive without being slaves to mankind. Jesus came in order that we would come to know how to achieve freedom in the kingdom of God.

Freedom is doing what you love and being responsible enough to provide for your family. The basic idea that God commanded in the beginning of time was to put food on the table. Work is to be directed towards creating an example of how we can provide and not be slaves to the world around us. Of all lessons to be taught throughout the Bible this is most critical in understanding God’s desire for us.

It is important for all working individuals to be aware of who and what they are working for. We are not subject to any authority other that which God has instituted. That means that our job is to use the discernment  of God in order to perceive what has been made by God and what has been created by man. This is a an absolute in the world today.

Of all the lessons that we as nation ought to be pursuing, we need to be focused upon using our resources together in order to not be slaves to mankind. This is a prime example of a revolution that must take place in order for us to make all things new together as a body of believers in Jesus Christ. Recycling is a basic concept that is at the core foundation of a new world. By recycling our goods and resources we are able to flourish without being slaves to man. Recycling and innovation is how we make progress in achieving a state that is worthy to be called sufficient for God. It is not about how much we have, but more directed towards what we do with what we have.

The circle of life is our way of overriding the symbols and meaning of the world without God. The same is exemplified by the symbol of recycling. Recycling is the way in which God plans on making all things new. By each and every person seeking to learn how one is able to do all these things with the help of the body we learn how we may define true success in the kingdom of God.

The basic idea of making all things new is empowering one another in a direction opposite of the world. This is God’s plan to save mankind.

As we approach the time when we shall see the outcome of what has been prophesied from since the beginning of the world we must understand that a time is coming quickly in which the righteous judgment of God will put an end to the deceit and false representation of Christ.

There is soon to come a separation of the people of Jesus and the people that worship the pillars of the world, which were created by Islam a long time ago. Islam has crept around behind the scenes, just like Satan, for so long now that many people never realized how much power they had stored up in corruption and deception. The reality of this situation to God is horrific and since the testimony of Jesus has been presented we now will see the evil revealed to all the world, and all citizens of this nation. The testimony of Jesus is the revealing of the great harlot that has corrupted the entire earth and forced their pillars upon all nations. This is what we may also recognize as the beginning of the end. The testimony of Jesus will reveal all of the harlotry that has polluted all the kings and leaders on the earth. By understanding and trusting the testimony of Jesus we begin to perceive things through God’s eyes. Through His eyes we are kept safe and aware of the great deception that is living throughout the world.

By studying the truth behind the woman and the beast of the Revelation and recognizing the identity of Jesus we begin to associate people with roles. The roles of specific individuals that Jesus has known over the course of His life helps us to identify the great harlot and the beast that she rides. You see these two are one and the same. They have used the greatest tool of evil, which is seduction, to gain control over the players that have the authority to make the changes that God demands. God’s Son, the offspring of David and the Bright Morning Star, has come to testify as to the identity these figures. The harlot is both of these figures. These two have deceived the entire world through fornication which lured both all men and women into their favor. By using their bodies in acts of immorality and taking various forms these figures have manipulated the powers of this United States government into their favor.

However, as we approach the end we see that Jesus reveals these figures. The people that are with Jesus help to save all of those who are lost. This is the process of the rapture that by paying careful attention we understand to be taking place in the world today.

“Fear not the world, but fear God’s judgment upon the world.”

To begin to fill the minds and hearts of the people across this country is to understand where change is imminent. To force the brilliant minds of men and women to ponder the question of moral crisis and dilemma is to begin to know where innovation and creativity may be used for reform.

Reformation of the current system is detrimental to survival. It is right to be worried and alarmed by the information that has been brought to the service of where the true problems exist in our country. The discussions across this nation are to be consumed by that of the truth which may be found in the Living Word of God. Ethical questions must be addressed and answered. Why is it that we do not hear open discussion about belief systems and their origin in the United States of America? Why is it that we cannot have a controlled discussion about the topics which are at the core of our Constitution? Is is sheer laziness? Is it moral crisis? The fact is that change is necessary. Without change the country is doomed. A country’s survival is dependent upon God alone.

“Oneness” of God is a belief that there are many forms of God that open the gates of heaven. As we consider the seven spirits of God we must be careful and look to the character of Jesus Christ. Each of these spirits is an attribute of God. Or in other words these seven spirits may be a form of God. To define these seven we must listen to the testimony of Jesus.

Having been instructed to test the spirits of the world we see that there is a spirit working in the heart of man that is not of God. It is a spirit that promotes dissension and chaos. If we as a people do not address this spirit, then our country will destroy itself. This destruction, and loss for answers, is due to sheer rebellion to God.

Our labors are to be what we enjoy and not based upon what someone else may be able to give us, but on the other hand what we may achieve through the motivation of the Holy Spirit. Our battle is not focused upon capital. Capital is the same as the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Capital is the origin of dissension of society in a direction away from the truth. Turning the tables, and empowering the lower class or those who need help is our way of saving this nation. The power must soon be handed over to the brilliant minds who demand very little capital for survival. They possess the ideas that will transform and save a nation that has revolved around capital for so long now. By listening we are able to gain understanding. Classes must dissipate and we must realize that life is not about monetary gain. Life is about understanding the building blocks of society.

Our cause and priority is to supply information to the public. By following this instruction we will see a nation transformed into a state pleasing to God. The oppression must dissipate and there shall be no tolerance for such acts of intimidation.

In this day and age, we are to disparage the popular government which is an illusion and power to the opposition who desires to remain in control. The Christian movement is to extend the scope of perception. By opening the eyes of the public and confessing the problematic issues that have allowed for turmoil and outright persecution we will begin to see progress. But until that time in which a leader will discuss not monetary issues, but instead issues of Biblical ethics we will see a continued growth of strife and chaos. God forewarned people of this time and age from long ago.

The distractions must be overcome by understanding that our priority is not to make our treasure that of capital. Our true treasure is discovering the intimate small productions of creativity in order to understand the hidden kingdom of God, that the Bible entitles us to. Goods and service are the foundation of an economy. The goods that we must be producing must be informative as opposed to distracting from the true dynamic of the situation in which we are living. Divine faith must be at the core of our goods and services. Without the divine truth being incorporated into our businesses and production continual stresses will arise.

The idea behind a Christian democracy is that justice will be lasting and sacred. Let us not distort or confuse any longer the name of Christian democracy in the United States of America. Our contingency is to realign and restructure the system in a way that demands honor and diligence to increasing God’s kingdom. We as a nation are to be sewing seeds in the kingdom of heaven. We are to be free from political parties and to understand that classes are irrelevant. The change of the country will be based upon simple yet divine ways of thinking.

We as a nation are to stand firm in our spirit of obedience to one body, one spirit, one Baptism, and one God and Father who is above all, and through all, and in us all. We are to be subject to Him alone.

 

I want to write for a little while about how the army of God wages war. As a united body of believers we wage war against the beast of society. The beast is all the bad that exists in the world. The beast was created to wage war against God. The beast is rebellion to God. Therefore, we as valiant warriors of God stand firm in our righteousness. We hold true to He who created us. For we are all the offspring of Christ if we seek out our first love, which ought to have been God through Christ.

The way that war is waged is by running through the enemy in our daily lives by being built up in the light of the Holy Spirit, the true light which God provides. At this point in time this is how we win the war against those who follow after the ruler of the world, also known as wormwood. To overcome wormwood we establish our ways of thinking to be like those of God. We see through His eyes the world as it exists in the end of days, the present. This is how we know to wage war. We are fighting against spiritual wickedness in high places. These spirits may be invisible a majority of the time.  Remember that angels of God may be invisible also. The limited power that was given to the followers of the beast is that to persecute with outright scrutiny. This was foretold in the Bible.

It is time to command all of the armies of God to rise up and overcome the spiritual wickedness that has deceived and killed so many. It is God’s command that we uphold His ways in all that we do. We will wage war against all of those who persecute and attempt to destroy the truth of the Living Word of God.

This is a time in which the beast will be put to an end. All of those who have followed after the beast will soon find themselves in no man’s land. Then will come the day of judgment for those who are what God sees to be the walking dead.

The priests and angels of God are to overcome with authority of the Holy Spirit, who is both a peacemaker and a warrior. Understanding the balance is key. The character of the army of God is to reconcile the situation in ways that are pleasing to God, but to never be overcome or intimidated by the opposition.

James 5:8 “Be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near. Don’t grumble against each other, brothers, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door!”

Understand that the judge of all is Jesus Christ. He has been called by His Father to judge the living and the dead. He is the most merciful of all judges yet He demands respect for His Father and His Law.

1 Corinthians 16:13 “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love.”

Love is God. God has two sides. Love is what He desires to use to shower the entire world, but as a Father disciplines His Son, so does God discipline those whom He loves. This is a hard lesson for many, but understanding the mind of God to not put up with evil is essential to understanding the heart of God.

As we carefully analyze the end times and Biblical prophecy we see that following the antichrist Jesus appears to us in a way that is without a doubt all of God’s Glory. Jesus appears bright and clean in a robe dipped in blood. Now as we attempt to understand this piece of the Revelation we must pay careful attention to the deep mind of God and the hidden sufferings of Jesus Christ. The sufferings of Jesus are most of all felt deep inside His body especially His heart. His heart is the center of the body and without His heart the world would be lost forever. The heart of Christ is filled with knowledge that only God can provide and His Son uses that knowledge when God commands Him to do so. All of the angels of heaven follow Him and are guarding the truth that He holds deep inside. His heart is where the true crucifixion has taken place.

We see that in the end an angel standing in the sun, bearing all the beauty of God’s Glory is the one who commands that all kings, generals, mighty men, horses and their riders, and all people who have risen up against the Son of God are to be wiped off the face of the earth. The reason that God commands this is due to the horrific attacks and persecution upon His Son. Of all the finishing touches that God commands in this event, the beast and the false prophet who had performed miraculous signs in the presence of man are cast into the lake of fire. The followers who are left  after this event, will be cut down by the sword that comes out of the mouth of the rider on the white horse, Jesus.

Remember that it is not about times or dates as much as it is about God’s will. The end is concerning God’s will through His Son and all of the angels of heaven. God has already chosen the day and the time of which these events are to unfold. It could be anyway now. This is the spirit of prophecy.

In God’s mind one day may be a thousand years…It is our job to be sure that we act according to God’s will and honor what He has predestined from since the beginning of the world. The new world has yet to come. Know that God has already carefully designed this world, and His Son and the entire kingdom of God are the author of it all.

Psalm 90:4-6 “For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night. You sweep men away in the sleep of death; they are like the new grass of the morning–though in the morning it springs up new, by evening it is dry and withered.”

As we carefully review the words spoken by Jesus, we see that our entrance into a new life, where the true light of God exists is the temple that prevails in the end of days. The temple of God, protected by the chief shepherd, is where we discover our new home.

The only gate that God allows people to enter His kingdom is through His Son. His Son is the way, the truth, and the life. The most confusing aspect of all this is recognizing the true Son of God. For the Bible clearly forewarns us that there will be many claiming to be Jesus, but they are only attempting to mislead for their own personal gain. Jesus helps us know Him by the truth that He communicates. I believe that testing each person is critical to understanding what God demands of His people. For many will enter the wide gates, which lead into destruction, for they are those that have not done the work of God. However, for the few that have studied and carefully analyzed the situation, I believe that their inheritance is the kingdom of God.

The most concern that God has today is in regards to those that have stolen what His Son gave us. You see, the thieves are the ones out to deceive and in most cases in order for material gain, or worldly gain. Jesus does not desire anything other than rewarding His people with discernment, which entitles them to a new life, with hope and promise.

The chief shepherd tends his flock, and His people go in and out through the window that God provides in order to remain protected. Jesus stands firm in all of His ways, no matter what the opposition. Greater love has no man than this, that one would lay down his life for his disciples and friends. Jesus lays His life down, only to take it up again. This was how His Father taught Him to live in the world.

May the true shepherd be revealed by His true character and heart.

John 10:17-18 “The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life–only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down on my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”

Having been caught up in a moment of moral agony I feel it only necessary to address a matter of moral crisis that has been created by mankind. This issue that I am referring to is in regard to modern day use of language and the direct relationship in and throughout God’s Living Word.

The matter of concern that I feel compelled to write about is that of the reference to money and material value in a direct relationship with God. The goal of Jesus was never to become of the world, but to live according to the Divine Law of heaven through our relationship with God the Father. In order to overcome the world Jesus had to teach the world what it meant to live freely and without cost. Creation was given to us as a free gift, and that of which we are to fully embrace and use to live according to God’s way. God’s way is not increasing the need for money or currency, but doing away with the power of the world. The ruler of this world uses money to control the lives of those who have dedicated their lives to serving God. Of all the sins of mankind, the use of money has been abused for thousands of years to hold people under the law of man.

A quick reference to the Word of God is crucial.

Matthew 6:12 “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.”

This portion of the Lord’s prayer, which Jesus taught us to pray before all other prayers, has been destroyed by the work of mankind of the ruler of the world. This is how the world has been conformed and deceived by evil persons deep behind the scenes. Doing a bit of research about Islamic ideology will help one to discern the truth. Using the term debt has allowed for businesses, churches, and all institutions to distort the truth of the Word of God.

Jesus does not believe in debt from a monetary stand point. Jesus has never spoken of the issue of debt in regards to His kingdom because money in God’s kingdom does not exist. His mind does not revolve around wealth. We simply do not owe debt to any person or government because of our success in what we have built or created. Our success is to be considered in terms of God’s kingdom. The cost of living and inflation have caused the world to look to money as our only source of survival.  If we do away with money, what do we have in the world? This is the question that each person ought to be dwelling upon.

Confusing the term “debt” with “sin” is man’s way of forcing the world to submit to government authority. You see, government is funded by the highest monetary powers in the world. This is why the prayer of Jesus is a threat to their existence. Sin is not owing money or any material possession to God. It is essential for the survival of this human race that we correct the mistake that has been projected upon the saints and followers of Jesus Christ. For their reward is the Tree Of Life, which is without cost, as are all things in God’s kingdom.

Do not be fooled by the clever ways of the worldly powers to confuse the truth of the real Jesus.

For just as man has taken from God in this way, so also will God take life from man.

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all of these things (this truth)  shall be added to you.”

In return for the righteousness that Noah had demonstrated towards God, Noah was given the right to load up the ark with creatures of all kinds, both male and female of each species. God informed Noah that in response to man’s rebellion to His desire, that He would send rain upon the earth for forty days and nights. God planned to wipe every living creature from the face of the earth.

Noah and all of his family loaded the ark, and suddenly the springs of the deep and the heavens bursted forth water of an enormous capacity. This was done in order to demonstrate His absolute authority as author of the world. For the entire forty days heavy rains continued and never let up, wiping out all the living creatures from the earth.

Once God closed the floodgates of heaven the waters began to recede. God sent out a raven from a window that he had made in the ark to see if it could find dry land. Noah then sent out a dove to see if it would come back with evidence of dry land, and sure enough after a little time there in its beak was a little olive leaf. So, after seven more days he sent out the dove again and it did not return. This was the indicator that land was to soon be discovered.

Noah removed the covering of the ark and saw that the earth had become dry.

God then commanded Noah and his family to come out of the ark. God said allow all of the creatures on the ark to come out and to be fruitful and to multiply.

Noah soon built an altar to the Lord, where he sacrificed burnt offerings to God. The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in His heart that He would never curse man again…Even though He knew that the heart of man was evil from childhood.

As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.

God instructed Noah and his family to be fruitful and to increase in number upon the earth. Every beast of the field and creature of the earth would fear man. For all of what God created was established in order for the survival of man. Therefore, just as all of the green plants on the earth are yours, so are every living creature (not including man) that moves. But never eat the meat with lifeblood still in it.

God informed Noah that He would take into account the actions of each man while on the earth. He would also take an account of every animal.

Whoever makes the choice to shed the blood of man, so will man shed his blood. God made man in order to fill the earth and to live in harmony, not to wage war on one another.

The covenant that God chose to use to be the sign of the promise that He would not flood the earth was that of the rainbow. God promised to never again, wipe out the entire human race with a flood.

By setting a rainbow in the clouds, God set His covenant between Himself and the earth.

Now, this covenant was created to allow man to survive as long as God would allow for the earth to remain in existence. However, in the end of the world, after having sent His only begotten Son, God would once again execute justice upon all of mankind that had crucified His Son and all of His people  who had not repented for their sins. For all of the abominable, unbelieving, and immoral persons their promise would be in the lake of fire and brimstone.

The covenant of the rainbow is a key piece of the promise that God made in sending His only begotten Son into the world, with the hope that the world would understand God. The rainbow is a key piece of understanding the name written upon Jesus, which no one knows but Himself.

Jesus is clothed in rainbows.

God created man in the likeness of Him. God created male and female in order for child birth to be possible and for God’s likeness to fill the earth, they were called “man.”

Following the birth of many men to the earth, and daughters born to them, men began to take the beautiful daughters for themselves. God saw this, and said, “My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal.”

Having seen the desire of man on the earth, the sheer wickedness, God began to grieve for creating man. The evil thoughts of the heart became a heavy concern and burden to God. God became filled with pain due to man’s strong opposition to His Spirit.

Having seen the earth corrupted by evil and full violence, God decided to put an end to it all. Destruction became the mind of God and He instructed Noah to build an ark that would be a vessel to preserve what God desired.

God informed Noah that everything living on the earth would perish, but that He would establish a covenant with Him and spare his life. God told Noah to take two of every species and every type of food so that it would be stored for safekeeping and survival.

God’s anger towards man’s heart and rebellion to His Spirit was and is the reason for all of the chaos that we see today. By provoking God, mankind is without excuse. In the end when God fulfills His absolute promise to cleanse the earth of all the wickedness, man will not be able to say that God did not forewarn you. For in that very moment the evil will become obsolete and will disappear. God has mercy on those who seek His Spirit, and not the spirit that haunts the world through evil ideology in opposition to God’s desire for mankind.

For there is a spirit at work in the hearts of man that is not of God.

Ephesians 2:1-3 “And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.”

As Adam and Eve began to follow God’s instruction in conceiving children in order to create a family, Eve became pregnant and gave birth to a son named Cain. Soon after the birth of Cain, Eve brought forth another son whom she named Abel.

Abel kept the flocks and Cain worked the soil. They worked outside most of the time and learned what it meant to plant and provide with the basic tools that God had given them.

Offerings soon began as an acknowledgment to God. Cain brought some fruits from the soil and Abel brought fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Lord looked upon Abel with favor, but to Cain he did not. Cain became angry. Here we must acknowledge that the greatest of offerings to God is our writing and dialogue with Him.

God said to Cain, “If you do what is right will you not be secure by Me? However, if you do not act according to God, sin is crouching at the door and it desires to have you. Your job on this earth is to master sin!”

Cain became angry and in his anger murdered his brother Abel. For this murder God took His blessing away from Cain and commanded that Cain would wander the earth as a man lost.

God then placed a mark on Cain in order that no man who found him would slay him. Note that this is the first place in the Bible where we are able to acknowledge God marking His chosen. For later in the Bible we see where false prophets have arisen and have marked mankind according to the ways of man, specifically the mark of the beast or the devil. The fact is that self mutilation is the work of Satan and very different than that of the sealing of God’s servants by their toil and efforts in standing firm and remaining true to Jesus. Those that have stood firm in Jesus, the Son of God, have battle wounds from the sheer persecution and the battle that in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon. This directly applies to the Book of Revelation.

The lesson to be learned from this chapter in Genesis is that our job on this earth is to master sin by conquering Satan along with all of the false prophets who appear in sheep’s clothing, but inside are ravenous wolves. There is no greater priority for us than to act according to God, versus man. This is how the battle will be won. Have no regard for man, but in all ways seek God for direction.

The serpent was more deceptive than any of the wild animals that God had created and decided to entice the woman in order to gain advantage over God’s creation. The way in which he deceived the woman was by making her believe that she could become like God in knowing all things.

God forewarned the woman of what was to come, and told her that if she were to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil she would surely die. By the crafty scheme of the devil, the woman was enticed and deceived into believing that her eyes would be opened like God and she would know good and evil.

You see, the fruit appeared to be good and was very pleasing to the eye, but the consequences were most severe, as God had forewarned her of what was to come. After being tempted and eating the fruit she gave some to her husband and he ate it. Therefore, the woman was responsible for misleading her husband in the same way that the serpent had mislead her.

The man and woman both realizing that they were naked hid from the Lord God as they heard Him walking in the garden in the cool of the day.

After questioning both the man and woman as to whether or not they ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, God was informed by the man that the woman had given him fruit from the forbidden tree.

The woman knowing her mistake, confessed to God.

The Lord God then cursed the serpent and said that because you have done this, cursed are you for all the rest of your days. You will crawl on your belly and eat the dust all the days of your life.

God then separated the offspring of the woman from the offspring of the serpent. For this is the beginning of the division that would separate the children of God from the children of the devil.

God commanded that the woman would bear children and that her husband would be the guide for her all the days of her life.

To Adam God said that for his mistake in eating from the tree, and listening to the woman who had been deceived, he would need to work in order to provide food for both he and his wife. For from dust man had been created and to dust he would eventually return, as a consequence for eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Adam then gave the name Eve to his wife, who would be the mother of the human race to come.

For both Adam and Eve, God commanded that they were not to eat from the tree of life, which would give them eternal life.

The Lord God cast man out of the Garden of Eden to work and to provide food for he and his wife on his own with what God had given him.

After God drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden cherubim and a flaming sword to guard the way to the tree of life. The flaming sword is that which holds the power of God to destroy all evil and to allow only those who choose God to obtain eternal life by the Holy Spirit and the Tree of Life, Jesus.

The seventh and final day was the day that God chose to rest and to think about how He would set creation into action.

After God completed His work, all life began to spring up from the earth.

The Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground  (Symbolized by Jesus writing in the dirt) and the breath of life He breathed into the man in order to bring him to life.

God made trees bearing all kinds of fruit for the garden in the east, in Eden, and there man was placed. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters.

The Lord God took man and placed him in the garden to take care of it. The Lord also commanded the man saying, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you shall surely die.”

God then said that is was not good for man to be alone. He made man a helper.

The man named all of the creatures of the earth which God had created.

The Lord God then caused the man to fall into a deep sleep, and while he was asleep He took one of the man’s ribs and created woman. From the bone of man’s bone woman came to be.

For this reason, God intended for all men and women alike to seek out to become one in marriage, one flesh.

One flesh in a holy bond between man and woman is symbolized by Jesus and His bride. Jesus, His bride, and the Spirit of God are one flesh. This is both the end of a former life and the beginning of a bond together as one flesh. For the three that testify to this are the Spirit, the water, and the blood. These three are also symbolic of the union between man and woman. These three are symbolic of rebirth and conception to increase God’s kingdom.

The man and woman were both naked and not ashamed.

Before free will, caused by eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, man and woman had no  concerns or anxiety. As one flesh blessed by God they relied on God for all of their needs. There was no need of currency, which has become the center piece of the world that we now live in.

There is and was no other God.

God began His work when He created the heavens above and the earth below. For before God moved His finger to artistically design this world, the earth was without design and empty. The canvas was blank and darkness was all that could be seen. God’s magnificent spirit became the art of the world. As God began to speak and to move His fingers in an artistic fashion, the design of the world began.

The power of light was God’s first thought, which would become the image of His Son. Light is the key to understanding God’s mind.

The great expanse became the sky.

God then put land in place as a foundation for His creation to come.

The great expanse of water became the sea.

The seed bearing plants and fruit bearing trees were then created in order for there to be vegetation.

God then created lights that would govern the day and night. These lights would soon to come to serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years. The stars then became a key piece of the sky.

God went on to create every winged bird and living creature.

Then God used His image to create a man. God created a man to rule over all the fish, birds, livestock, over all land and over all the living creatures.

God provided this man with seed bearing plants to allow for growth. God provided trees bearing fruit for man. God created all plants and trees for man and all living creatures of the earth. Every green plant and tree were to be for food for every living creature that has the breath of life in it.

God’s artistic design became the framework for the world. His work began using creativity. His mind bearing the understanding of trial and error. God created man in an attempt to achieve perfection.

God began His creation with the body of Jesus in mind. Jesus was God’s first thought. With His brilliance God created what we know today as the living breathing organism by which the world was intended to be controlled. This is how we understand that the body of Christ is the image of God.

1 Corinthians 15:24-28 “Then the end will come, when He hands over the kingdom to God the Father after He has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For he has put everything under his feet. Now when it says that everything has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God Himself, who put everything under Christ. When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to Him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.”

2 Corinthians 4:2 “Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

2 Corinthians 4:4 “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”

2 Corinthians 5:1 “Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.”

In order for all the world to know what is taking place at this very moment, we must recognize that God is not of this world. God’s temple is not of this world. Nor is God’s Son.

When all authority and dominion is conquered and we recognize the power of God through His Son, recognize that the end is near.

2 Corinthians 5:5 “Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.”

Acts 17:24-28 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And He is not served by human hands, as if He needed anything, because He Himself gives all men life and breath and everything else. From one man He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. For in Him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are His offspring.’ ”

The ancient temple is one of our greatest clues to where we may discern the true presence of God in a world that is full of Satan’s illusions. By reaching out for the truth we discover that, just as it was in the days of Paul, the true temple is not one that has been built by the hands of men, but by God.
