Adjusting Our Will To Fit The Truth

THE AVANIM: WEIGHTS OF THE BALANCE

THE TEACHER LED me into a chamber he had never shown me before. It was illuminated by the light of oil lamps and filled with round stones of varying sizes. We sat down by a small table. He opened up a cloth bag filled with small stones and poured them out onto the tabletop. They were round and light in color, and each engraved with what appeared to be ancient letters.

“What are they?” I asked.

“They are the avanim,” he said, “the weights of the balance. And this is the Chamber of Measures. These were the measures and standards used in ancient times to determine values, weights, and quantities.” He then took out a second bag and emptied its contents onto the table. “These look the same as the others, but they’re not. These are false measures, altered weights. The inscriptions have been changed so that they no longer match the weight of the stone. This one says shekel, but it weighs less than a shekel. It would be used by a corrupt merchant to make an item appear to be heavier or greater than it was. The merchant had redefined the measure to conform it to his will and want.”

He picked up one of the stones, then continued. “Altered weights not only concern corrupt merchants . . . but civilizations. When a civilization redefines its values, when it changes the meanings and definitions of reality away from God and away from the created order, when it alters the measures of morality, of right and wrong, to conform them to its will and desires, it is dealing in altered weights, false measures . . . deceptive balances. It is turning the objective into the subjective, and man into God.”

At that he emptied another bag of weights onto the table and began reading their inscriptions. ”

“This one says Good, and on the other side Evil. This one says Life, and on the other side Death . . . Idol, and on the other side God. Male and Female . . . Sacred and Profane. This one says Marriage. And this one says Child in the Womb. They’ve all become altered weights, false measures, changed values . . . signs of corruption.”

“So how do you escape the corruption of altered weights?”

“Never change the truth to fit your will. Change your will to fit the truth. Never bend the Word of God to fit your life. Bend your life to fit the Word of God. Beware of false standards . . . and stay far away from the weights of falsehood.”

The Mission: Conform today your will to the truth, your ways to the Word, and your life to the image of God. Uphold the weights of the balance.

Proverbs 11:1; 16:11; Isaiah 5:20

Experience Leads To Wisdom

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. 

     

Touching the Wings/Garments of the Messiah

THE WINGS OF MESSIAH

HE LED ME into the Chamber of Garments. There he found a prayer shawl, white with blue stripes, and draped it over his head.

“Do you know what this is?” he asked.

“A prayer shawl,” I replied.

“It’s called a tallit. The most important part of the tallit is its corners and the fringes of its corners. In the law of Moses, it was commanded that the children of Israel were to wear fringes on the corners of their garments. The corner itself is called the kanaf. And the fringes on the corners are called the tzitzit. In the New Testament, there are no physical descriptions of Messiah. We don’t know what He looked like. But we do know what He wore. His garment had four sacred corners and fringes, the kanaf and the tzitzit. It is recorded in the Gospels that a woman with an infirmity once touched the hem of His garment and was instantly healed. The miracle was not unique. In fact, it’s recorded that everyone who touched the hem of His garment was healed. But they didn’t just touch the hem of His garment. The New Testament Greek renders that which they touched as the kraspedon. Kraspedon is a translation of the Hebrew words kanaf and tzitzit.”

“So they weren’t just touching the hem of His garment; they were touching the sacred corner and fringe of His garments as ordained in the Law.”

“Exactly. And at the very end of the Hebrew Scriptures, an amazing verse appears: ‘The sun of righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings.’ But in Hebrew it doesn’t say, ‘with healing in His wings.’ It says, ‘with healing in His kanaf’—the same word that is translated as kraspedon. . . the fringe of Messiah’s garment. So they touched the kanaf, the corner, the fringe, of the sun of righteousness, Messiah, and they found ‘healing in His wings.’ Therefore, never be afraid to touch God. If God puts fringes on His garment, it means He is touchable. He is not afraid to be touched. So touch God with your infirmities, your wounds, your uncleanness, your sins, with the darkest part of your life, and you will be changed. For the Sun of Righteousness will arise with healing in His wings . . . with healing in His kanaf.”

The Mission: Touch God today with the darkest, most painful, most ungodly part of your life—that you might find healing in His wings.

The Kraspedon Mysteries I–IV

Heroism

     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 Study of Knowledge and Truth

THE SILENCE OF THE TRUTH

WHAT IS TRUTH?” I asked.

“Ah,” said the teacher, “a question asked by philosophers throughout the ages. Do you know what the word philosophy means? It comes from two Greek words: sophia, which means knowledge, and philo, which means love. So philosophy can be taken to mean the love of knowledge or wisdom. Man has been pondering and seeking after the truth for thousands of years. And after all those years, do you know what the conclusion of philosophy is?”

“No.”

“No conclusion,” he said. “They all came up with different answers . . . no answer.

And yet in the midst of all this, the question was once posed, in a very unique context, not by a philosopher, but by a man of bloodshed. He asked the question to one of his prisoners. The man was Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Judea . . . and the prisoner was the Messiah. So Pilate posed the question, ‘What is truth?’ Then he went outside to the multitude and said, ‘I find no basis for a charge against Him.’ So what was the answer to his question?”

“He didn’t give an answer,” I said. “There was no answer.”

“But there was an answer,” said the teacher, “in the absence of the answer . . . in the silence of the truth. It was in His not saying anything, that He said everything, in His not answering, that the question was answered. Truth is deeper than words. The truth wasn’t the truth about something, or even the truth about Him—it was Him, standing there right in front of Pilate’s eyes, in flesh-and-blood reality. You see, the idea of truth, the talk of truth, and the study of truth . . . is not the truth. Philosophies and religions may be about the truth, but that which is about the truth can blind you from seeing the truth itself. Never let yourself end up in the realm of the about and lose that which the about is all about. The truth is that which is . . . as God is. The truth is Him. And so the only way to know the truth . . . is to know Him . . . directly, personally, in His presence, face-to-face, heart to heart . . . What is truth?” asked the teacher, “He is the truth. And what is the answer to all philosophy, the love of knowledge? It is to love the truth. Therefore . . . the answer . . . is to love Him.”

The Mission: Today, leave the “realm of the about” and go beyond the talk and words to the bare truth of His presence. Be still and know that He is God.

Psalm 46:10; John 18:38

Him

The Love Of God

        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. 

Seeing Into the Imperfections and Discovering The Kingdom of God…Gaining Insight

SEEING THE COLORS OF HEAVEN

IT WAS A sunny afternoon. The teacher led me into one of the most beautiful of the school’s gardens, one that was filled with flowers of every variety and color. He handed me a piece of colored glass he had removed from his pocket.

“Now look at the garden through the glass. How many colors do you see?”

“Just one,” I replied. “Everything’s red.”

“Yes. The glass filtered out every ray of light except for the red. Even though the garden is filled with colors, all you can see through the glass is the red. The world, like this garden, is also a mix of colors. What God created is good. But the creation is fallen and is now a mix of good and evil. And it will be your glass that will determine what you see and what you receive of the world . . . The things you take for granted will become the filter of your glass. If you live requiring or expecting to get from this this world heaven or perfection, as one who deserves to be blessed, and thus taking the blessings for granted, you’ll blind yourself from seeing those blessings.”

“I would have thought it to be the opposite.”

“No,” said the teacher. “What you take for granted is that which you blind yourself from seeing . . . and that which you end up losing. If you take the good for granted, you’ll filter out the good. And the only thing you’ll see is all that is not good—the wrong, the imperfect, and the dark. To require heaven of this life is to filter out the heavenly . . . and make life hellish.”

At that, he handed me a second glass. When I lifted it to my eyes, I saw all the other colors, everything except the red.

“This is the secret,” he said, “and it’s linked to hell. If instead of taking heaven for granted, you take hell for granted . . . in other words, that you deserve judgment but have been given grace instead . . . and thus that no blessing is deserved or warranted . . . and no good thing is taken for granted . . . what then will happen? The opposite. Your heart will see only the good and every blessing. Everything will become a gift from God, and every moment, His grace. You see, compared to hell, this life is heaven . . . So learn to see your life through the second glass, and you’ll filter out hell. And what will remain? Heaven . . . and a heavenly life. . . . and you’ll see your life in heavenly colors.”

The Mission: Take judgment and hell for granted and the fact that you’re saved from it, and every other blessing in your life as total undeserved grace. And, by this, live a heavenly life.

Imperfections

     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.”

      

Union of The Spirit and The Bride

THE AGENT

WE CAME TO a tent camp I had never seen before and sat down in a nearby stretch of sand. I noticed a man making his way through the camp to one of the tents. He entered it and stayed inside for some time before emerging with two others, a middle-aged man and woman. I presumed them to be husband and wife. There, by the tent, they spoke into the nightfall.

“That,” said the teacher, “is an agent. He represents a man and woman from one of the other camps. His mission is to see if a marriage can be arranged between the son of those who sent him and the daughter of those to whom he was sent. It happened the same way in ancient times. Abraham sent his servant to a foreign land to find a bride for his son Isaac. So the servant embarked on the journey, bringing with him Abraham’s treasures as gifts for the bride. He ended up meeting the young woman Rebekah. After saying yes to the proposal of marriage, Rebekah embarked with the man on a journey back to the tents of Abraham where she would, for the first time, see Isaac face-to-face.”

“There’s a mystery there,” I said.

“Yes,” said the teacher. “Abraham offered up Isaac as a sacrifice. Not long after that comes the account of Isaac’s bride. To what would that correspond?”

“The offering of Isaac foreshadows the sacrifice of Messiah. So after Messiah’s sacrifice . . . comes the search for the bride . . . the bride is the church . . . each of us.”

“And whose mission then begins?” he asked. “Who is sent to the bride?”

“The Spirit of God,” I said. “The Spirit’s mission is especially to the bride.”
“Yes. The Spirit is the Agent, the Agent of the Father, the Agent of God. And the Spirit comes to the bride and shares with her of the Father and the Son . . . and draws her to them. And the Spirit comes bearing gifts from the Father to the bride, the gifts of the Spirit. And the Spirit leads the bride on a journey to the Son and the Father. And do you know what the name of Abraham’s servant was? Eliezer. And do you know what Eliezer means? It means my God is the helper. And what is the Spirit called? The Helper. So as real and as present as the servant was to Rebekah in her journey, just as real and present is the Servant of the Father, the Spirit, in your journey. So you’re never alone, not one moment of your life. You have one beside you, who is the Agent of God . . . For alongside you in your journey . . . is God, your Helper.”

The Mission: Live today in the awareness that you are not alone. God Himself dwells with you in the Spirit. Live as one with whom He is present.

Marriage Of The Minds

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 and the Holy Spirit of God.

New Beginnings and New Life…

THE MAZMERAH

WE WERE WATCHING one of the gardeners at work trimming the branches of a fruit tree.

“Do you see what he’s using?” asked the teacher. “In the Hebrew Scriptures it’s called the mazmerah, the pruning hook. He’s pruning the branch. Do you know why?”
“Tell me.”

“A tree,” he said, “has a limited amount of resources and energy to give to its branches. If a branch becomes unfruitful, it will hinder the tree’s overall health and its ability to bear fruit. It will drain the tree’s resources. So the purpose of pruning is to remove the unfruitful branch, that which is hindering the tree from fruitfulness. Pruning allows the tree to redirect its resources to the healthy and fruitful branches and thus to become even more fruitful.”

“And if one is not a gardener,” I said, “how does this apply?”

“Your life in God is a branch, a branch of His life, a conduit of His blessings. And just as any gardener must prune that which is unfruitful, so God must also prune His branches to allow them to bear the fruit they were meant to bear.”

“How does that translate into life?”

“For a tree being pruned, the process of pruning takes on the appearance of loss. So in this life, every child of God will experience what appears to be loss. Some things will pass from your life; others will be taken. They will appear to you as losses. But they will not be. The purpose of pruning is not to harm the tree, but just the opposite. It is to allow the tree to bear the fruit it was meant to bear. So too in your life with God. When you experience losses, they will not be for your harm. Every loss will be redeemed. Each will be used to cause you to become what you were made to become. So you’re not to dwell on what was and is no more, but on that which is yet to come, the purpose of God . . . the fruit that is yet to be brought forth. And don’t fear the mazmerah, God’s pruning hook. For it only has one purpose . . . that you might bear the fruit for which your life from the beginning was created to bring forth.”

The Mission: What losses have you known in your life? God has used and will use them to bring good and new life. Do likewise. Use them for good.

The Secrets of Pruning I–III

The End

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, and new beginnings are at hand…New Life…

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.”

 

A Leap of Faith To Be United With God…

AFTER THE END

THE LAST MYSTERY had been given. It was now the day after, the day after the end. It was time to leave. I had spent the morning packing my belongings. The teacher came to my room and walked with me to the end of the school grounds. There we stopped and looked out at the vast expanse of plains and mountains of the desert wilderness.

“Do you know the way?” asked the teacher.
“Very much so,” I answered.
“I mean through the wilderness.”
“I do.”

“What are you feeling?” he asked.
“Sad to leave.”

“Are you glad you came?”

“I am. I can’t imagine having not come. I wish it could go on.”

“But leaving is part,” he said. “You’ve been on a mountaintop. Now it’s time to go down. Now you must take what you’ve learned and apply it to the world, to life. What you’ve received, you must now give. The disciple must become the teacher.”
“The teacher?” I replied. “I could never be like you.”

“But I was once just like you,” he said, “a disciple, invited to come here by another teacher. And he, in turn, was once a disciple like me, invited by another. And so the mysteries have been passed down from teacher to disciple, from age to age. Remember what you were given here.”

“I will. I wrote it all down. Every day, after every teaching, I wrote down everything I could remember. I have it all in a journal, a book.”

“A book?” he said. “A book of mysteries. Good. Then you’ll always have them. And every time you open up the mysteries, every time you ponder them, and every time you apply them to your life, you’ll discover more revelations and more insights than you found at first.”

There was a pause and a silence as we gazed out into the wilderness.

“Do you remember the fraction that represents our time on earth?”
“One-eternitieth,” I said.
“Yes. That’s how much you know so far, ‘one-eternitieth,’ ‘one-infinitieth’ of what there is to know. There’s so much more to learn. So the course could never have ended here. And you must never stop seeking more of Him.”

“So the course goes on for . . .”

“Eternity.”

“Because eternity is how long it takes to know God.”

“Yes, and to know the final mystery.”

“The final mystery?”

“God,” he said. “The final mystery is God . . . God is the final and ultimate mystery . . . the mystery of all mysteries . . . and the mystery of you. And so the more you know Him, the more you’ll know the answer to the mystery of you. And so the course goes on.”

At that, we embraced, and then I left. I walked into the desert, then stopped to turn around.
“Teacher,” I said.
“Yes.”
“I never thanked you.”
“For what?”

“For everything. For inviting a traveler who had no destination to find one.”
“That was your destination,” he said, “all of it. With God there are no accidents. It was He who invited you, He who called you, and He who taught you. And now it is He who goes with you.”

Those were the last words I heard the teacher say. When, a little farther on, I turned around to look back, he was gone. And so ended the year of my dwelling in the desert, my days with the teacher.

And so with the writing of these words ends the record of those days and of the mysteries given therein.

I then resumed the journey, and the course of mysteries, as I walked through the wilderness in the presence of the Teacher.

And may the one who reads this book do likewise.

Chances

Taking chances is a part of life. Taking a leap of faith is a vital part of life into discovering eternity with God… 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.
