The First

Featured photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 

The first Adam (man) is where our origin began, the birth of the Human Race. Where, God—from my perspective—breathed life into the soul of an infant-man-being. Conscious of his existence and relationship to the one Whom provided his beginning, made from the soil of the Earth, conceived as a seed (cell) to be planted—having a Father and Mother invisible to the naked eye, but always around and aware for the necessary care. Everything was seen as good, until…

“…”It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make a helper suitable for him.”” –Book of Genesis 2:18: As Parents would know—the time came for him to {man}age; entrusting the state of what is created to his capable hands, giving him the responsibility of naming things (creatures) not yet determine. All of which did not qualify as suitable for his helper, until…{Woman}!


21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. 22 The Lord God [t]fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. (Genesis)

Oracles of God

Featured photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 

Prayer is a place to go to empty the soul.  Where darkness is not judged by the light; condemned, to Hell.  But is a place to become invisible with God; completely vulnerable, as a child, broken before their parent, trusting it’s going to be okay when reasoning the pain away.  Sometimes the process to mend what was broken…is more painful than when the break itself occurred.  The experience is…  Difficult to bear.  But out of that pain produces character.  Now what of the pain of the Parent/s?  …Having to operate on their broken child screaming and lashing out “IT HURTS” because of the unexpected consequence.  That pain, brings a unique revelation.  God is mending to fix my spiritual brokenness…as my parent.  When I close my eyes to enter the closet of my soul and the darkness of my life closes in around me…  There comes a LIGHT!  That LIGHT reflects the glory of a transformed nature.  A new creation!  The light is operating on me through conviction.  The experience feels like Hell (whatever that place feels like) but just like a child would trust their parent to fix what is broken.  I trust this spiritual process for the sake of my salvation.  Emotions flood the system that produce questions compacted with surrender.  Exclaiming in anguish:  

I DON’T GET IT!!!  I DON’T!!  I DON’T UNDERSTAND!!!  I’M ANGRY!  IM SO ANGRY!!!  IS THIS WHAT LIFE IS!?  WHY WAS I ABUSED!?  WHY WAS I ABANDONED!?  WHY WASN’T I TAUGHT!?  WHY WASN’T THIS EXPLAINED!?  WHERE WAS MY CHOICE!?  MY PROTECTION!? WHAT IS THE POINT!?  I DON’T UNDERSTAND!?  YOU PROMISED!!!  YOU PROMISED!!!  YOU ARE AN ETERNAL GOD AND MY FATHER!  YOU KNEW MY LIFE BEFORE I KNEW MYSELF!  WHAT IS THE REASON FOR THIS PAIN!?  WHAT HAVE I DONE!?  WHAT DID I DO!?  AM I THE DEVIL!?  FORGIVE ME?  PLEASE! WILL YOU FORGIVE ME?  HELP ME!

Ben’s photo so beautifully depicts a difference between the darkness that compliments the light and the darkness on the cabin by the light.  The darkness on the cabin reflect my broken soul.  The light within the cabin is the work of God that has transformed my soul into a spirit that cries out “DAD”!  A evidential condition to every soul claiming Jesus for salvation.  So the experience of our broken lives are not without meaning.  In fact, the meaning for me is this…  Every decision I’ve made right or wrong is consequential.  Coming to the end of myself is the beginning of my existence.  Everything about who I am was nailed to the Only Son of God on His cross.  God is the Heavenly Father of Jesus Christ.  Jesus is the Son of God that bore my sinful flesh to the point of His cross.  Jesus obediently accepted to receive the consequence of my sin that should have killed me to Hell.  But not just killed me…  all the world!  Because none is capable of enduring a consequence of that magnitude other than God Himself in Christ Jesus!

Death is the result of sin but not everyone will die because of their Life received by acknowledging Jesus as their reason of and for salvation.  Because no one will be saved by any other name than His.  And, the only way of truly knowing that, is by conviction through the Holy Spirit that seals our fate.  Faith is the evidence of an invisible God at work in the life of a believer.  The evidence is judged by the fruit of our lives  The Holy Spirit of God is our Eternal Law Informant; letting us know we are dying for a reason; and with that understanding, teaching us how to conduct ourselves as a people saved by grace through faith.  God related to us by sending His only Son for our example to follow what pleases Him as our Father.  He was killed by sin at the beginning.  My God and Father knew it would cost the life of His only innocent Son to redeem a guilty one.

I hope that is making sense.  If not I pray you reason with me by going into a secluded place to pray.  And, before you move the tongue of your mind; address God in the Name of Jesus; then communicate about who you are; what’ been done to you and what you’ve done.  Listen with anticipation for His voice…  I promise, He does answer.

Sooo…  There is a man I know who reasoned with God for an example.  He reasoned with God for sake of a city much like the world is today.  I pray the reader will reason with God for the sake of their soul for salvation.  In Jesus Name…  Amen.


“And the LORD said, “The outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is indeed great, and their sin is exceedingly grave. I will go down now, and see if they have done entirely according to its outcry, which has come to Me; and if not, I will know.” Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, while Abraham was still standing before the LORD. Abraham came near and said, “Will You indeed sweep away the righteous with the wicked? Suppose there are fifty righteous within the city; will You indeed sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous who are in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous and the wicked are treated alike. Far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth deal justly?” So the LORD said, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare the whole place on their account.” And Abraham replied, “Now behold, I have ventured to speak to the Lord, although I am but dust and ashes. Suppose the fifty righteous are lacking five, will You destroy the whole city because of five?” And He said, “I will not destroy it if I find forty-five there.” He spoke to Him yet again and said, “Suppose forty are found there?” And He said, “I will not do it on account of the forty.” Then he said, “Oh may the Lord not be angry, and I shall speak; suppose thirty are found there?” And He said, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.” And he said, “Now behold, I have ventured to speak to the Lord; suppose twenty are found there?” And He said, “I will not destroy it on account of the twenty.” Then he said, “Oh may the Lord not be angry, and I shall speak only this once; suppose ten are found there?” And He said, “I will not destroy it on account of the ten.” As soon as He had finished speaking to Abraham the LORD departed, and Abraham returned to his place.”
~ ‭‭Genesis‬ ‭18:20-33


 

The First and Last, Legacy

Featured photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 

Thankfully, we live to learn what knowledge is all about—leaving a legacy. Do you realize that you are a living legacy? Everything about you is significant and powerful! All of what you’re presently learning, doing and or saying, is a production: I think virtue. Why? Because of our origin—how we were made since the beginning of time. Where . . .  ‘leaving a legacy’ started.


18 And He said to them, I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning. ~ Luke 10

—Jesus Christ (The Son of God)


That’s a bold statement, ‘…started.’ Doesn’t that claim to know a truth not known by all, our existence without having actually witnessed it? Especially being. . .this is written May of 2018! Some may think it’s spit-balling ancient old text, others—may presume delirium. But there is a reason to the mystery of our beginning only few understood for us to learn today. The teaching is in the Spirit of their writing. What they witnessed and died to tell us about! Unless you believe that, will not understand the first and last legacy.


45 So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. ~ 1 Corinthians 15

—Paul (Apostle of Jesus Christ)


Parallel Legacy

44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual. (1 Corinthians 15)


What is hidden within the veil of my inheritance?  There is a very small percentage of “Cherokee” Indian in my blood through my great grandpa, dad’ side.  But what does this knowledge of my history prove?  I’ve “sparked” a dialogue with God in hope to discover an answer…

It’s quite Interesting!  The answer I found…  Because it involves; every, living, soul.  The answer is a “parallel legacy”.  In one direction of my history, I’m left with confusion; but in the other, enlightenment and purpose.  I needed a relatable source verses reliable.  So here I am now, “beside myself”.  On a quest to discover the truths of my beginning.

There are a lot of opinionated truths about my inheritance.  So in taking the time to be “beside myself” received this revelation.  From the previous post I said, “…will require some action from you.”.  The “action”, is a psychological one that requires an intentional pursuit of faith.  Meaning that I had to separate myself from the “here and now” of my reality; prayer is the essential; but a meditative attention directed at God for a response is the equivalent (if you struggle with the “religious” terms).  Inspect the “fruit”.  Seriously take time to think and seek understanding from the “when” of your existence.  As you do this…  Ask for the truth about the scene at the beginning in the garden of Eden.

Lord willing.  Meet you in the next post…

About 30 Years of Age

23 When He began His ministry, Jesus Himself was about thirty years of age,…” Luke 3


 

Reaching the world

Do you enjoy parallels?  I very much enjoy parallels.  And I have one I’d like to share but will require some action from you.  Even if you don’t care for “parallels”… I’m confident this will be fascinating!  Are you familiar with the fruit of an orange?

Fruit

This fruit looks good and ready to eat, appealing to the eyes, expecting to provide nourishment.  Because we’re knowledgeable “beings” can immediately identify the fruit in the image above.  How long do you think I have before taking the first bite?  Not long at all; a moment to decide, but seconds before… The “bite”.  In a conversation with myself, it is not difficult to reject a fruit that is “forbidden”.

 

However, if that same fruit came from the hand of my wife.  That changes everything.  I trust my wife to give me good fruit.  And, I’m all the more convinced that the fruit is good when she is sharing it from her hand.  But what if my wife received the fruit based on a lie?  What if the transaction for this fruit was accomplished by an evil agenda to get her husband’s life insurance?  Or, too… Betray him with “wealth”, “wisdom”, and “power” by involving him on the “deal” that she previously made?

The Frontiers of Salvation

Featured photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com

As I peer out into the distance of a stretch of land and gaze upon a fence.  What does that fence mean?  Why is it there?  To what purpose?  Every reader (myself included) has a fence depicted as the one in the photo but unseen by the naked eyes.  This is the last post of what would be themed conceptually as, “A Reader’s Spiritual Threshold”.  

In walking the line of every fence encountered by my life (spiritually speaking); there comes a threshold, an entrance point (sill to a gate, door, opening) into the mysterious piece of land yet to be walked upon by my feet.  To read this post is permitting these words to walk inside your mind as though invited.  To do this without first being permitted is breaching the threshold of your conscience. — {Consider: Lucifer disguised himself in the form of a serpent as part of God’s creation on earth to approach the woman with a message, yet… Gabriel also a part of God’s creation in divine appearance approached Mary with a message.  Which message was of God?} — But if permitted, then to convey a message of enlightenment (truth) to your soul.  The choice of whether to receive these words as true is determined by your discernment of my spirit.  Just as fore mentioned in the previous two posts that “you’ve been breached with a lie“.  Also.  You’ve been approached with the truth.

 


17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3)


I have not received permission to step inside your mind.  Yet here we are writing and reading.  Something like a psychological dialogue; beside the point.  Permission is granted through the course of Jesus’ life here on this earth in the flesh.  Those saved are given a seal of the Holy Spirit that renews and transforms our character from glory to glory.  And, as no different than a complete stranger interjecting themselves in the course of your life for an unknown cause (other than anxiety) to interrupt, so too am I with these writings.  But with a message that will preserve your soul for eternity with Jesus Christ.  Not to violate you with a lie.  Where the violation comes is words used to influence your character… to my advantage for a self righteous arrogant agenda, “Look at my production”.  I could say that my “key” interest is finding out whether you’ve received salvation for an eternal life in Christ the Savior.  But how would you believe that unless first acknowledging a necessity for salvation?  That convincing will not come by me, but you… God gives the increase.  The testimony about Jesus is real and true because no being is capable of such a story other than God Himself.  I’m a sinner saved by grace.  I will not violate my readers by finagling words that fit my agenda or please my prideful perverted desires.  Although… How pleasing it must seem, to be known as an icon.  Leaving the mark “unforgotten” in the course of time.  Always remembered, admired, and praised to the glory of myself.  My name written in the history books as someone significant, perceived as the “genius who invented freedom” or the “one to establish the ‘cure’ from death”.  Just as fore mentioned, “you’re being violated right now” by your own perverted agenda to what supposedly will accomplish a well lived life.

I used the title in the previous post for attempt at a psychological affect, intrigue interest “What?!  What does that mean?”.  I was “fishing for a catch” but without bait.  That doesn’t mean my strategy worked… Yet!  But just means that was my intention.  I look around and see privilege; listen and hear memories past.  Our relational intimacy with God is fainting.  I’m driven to inspire out of that death mentality.  So to halt the train of thought from a busyness of life needed something that would bring about a question.  Something that even Moses would turn aside to checkout something AWESOME!  Every breath we breathe is ordained.  The Word of God is the seed of life in our breath, “I’m alive!”.  You and I are met by that resuscitation of God.  The fact we are breathing together in this same atmosphere is a miracle.  Because how can something dead, be alive to breathe?  That is how I know we can relate to one another in the purest form of intimacy with God.  We are consciously aware of our existence and simultaneously exchanging chemical data in every breath received by God to give one to another.  That is what these posts are about and represent… data from the “black hole” of Nathan’s soul, renewed and transformed to transmit a message to you… Reader.  You’re loved by God.

 

Liminal at the Limen of Liminality

Featured photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 

What!  “What does that mean?”.  Reader, I’m with you.  In the previous post the violation occurred through the mouth of a serpent that injected a seed of disease.  But you already knew that because of experiencing it day by day in some form or fashion.  This post!  However.  Will cause your train of thought to halt.  Because the realization hasn’t sunk in yet.  You’re being violated right now.  The eternal sensation of love with divine authority is fainting.

The human race has become so accustom to death that eternal life is Liminal.  Meaning that our sensation of being eternally alive is fainting.  We’ve forgotten our beginning; how we were made; our purpose.  Take a moment to breathe.  “Breathing”, is an action not limited by color, creed, or calculation; it is given and received by all Mankind.  We breathe together because of equality with God.  God breathes, we breathe.  The difference is production.  How does God breathe?

Reading this far, are you aware of how many breaths you’ve breathed (that is weird coming off the tongue)?  There is no emotion to express or words to explain the level of intimacy you have with God at this very moment.  I’ve asked myself whether God used words to speak my being into existence or is every breath breathed, without words.  But simply, received?  As the experience of a mutually agreed kiss to resuscitation… “I’m alive!?”.  Reader, are you alive?  Have you received the gift to breathe?

Inspire

Does divine inspiration cause concern or question?  Thinking to myself, “Wait. Am I… ‘God’?”.  Obviously not, but the principle of it.  Does not intimacy with God mean to become one with God?  Yet.  God is not a product of sin!  I’m not a product of sin!  So what does this mean?  Our diseased condition is a by-product of divine mal-practice by a spiritual being named Lucifer.  Is that agreed?  Is an eternal spirit judged by flesh?  I would say, “No.”.  My mind and flesh are a living condition that expresses two natures.

  1. Good
  2. Evil

Confessing the evil nature of my desires is the Limen of Liminality.  Meaning to cross a threshold into divine authority, from anonymity to belonging to a name above every name.  Having the knowledge of good and evil does not mean I possess “good” or “evil”.  The “will” to do “good” is present in me but not the possession of it.  In my mind I serve the law of God but my body is experiencing the law of sin; which is the result of a disobedient act that causes an experiential consequence; my inevitable death of this body.  However, this Liminality is where I’ve discovered rank with Jesus as my authoritative practice to master, the sin of my desires.  I was fooled to think that every breath I breathed was a form of debt, never to be paid; until the revelation of Jesus Christ.  Thank you Lord.  Peace be with you, Reader.  I love you.


15 For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might 20 which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. (Ephesians 1)


 

Breaching the Threshold

Featured photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 

Perversion” from English to Hebrew is translated, ” סְטִיָה “.  Translate that same Hebrew word back to English with google translator and you’ll find, “Deviation“.  When I’ve deviated from the truth of my nature as God made me, becomes a disease.  Genesis 3 is where I found the reason for an inherent deviation in my nature; having a desire for perversion.  “Why-How”, I’d ask myself.  I mean, “I know that it’s wrong”.  It is so “attractive” to have a “secret” that connects me to this other person or to have knowledge by an experience no one else has.  In speaking with a brother just last night about this disease… confessed one to another certain thoughts and matters of the heart that if acted upon would cause destruction.  You’ve been breached with a lie. God in His mercy and amazing grace gave my brother a name to identify this disease.

When you look at this photo, what do you see?  It’s intense and deep, Right!  Well…

Remember Me

It’s me “breaking wind”, it smells real bad! (That’s how to identify this disease)  Ju…st kidding!  Really though.  Reader, whenever you look at your life and see what is spiritually wrong.  Will be given a choice in that moment of whether you’ll continue or listen.  Just as I wrote in the previous blog, “there is an escape”!  I pray you’ll believe me.  It is a moment by moment daily struggle and spiritual war that we face.  You are not alone.  There are innumerable thought patterns that flood our system with desired responses.  The art of a right response will begin and form within ourselves by aligning to the true nature of a Holy God.  This is why meditating on the Word of God is vital!  After having a blessed time with my brother in Christ last night, at Napoli’s Italian restaurant, am convinced that the Hebrew language is a spiritual one.  And, this western language of English is a worldly one.  When I close my eyes to examine myself, see what the nature of sin has cause me to know and understand.  And… it’s painful.  I’m broken.  But also see how I’m being restored through faithfully abiding in the Word of God with my brother’s, sister’s, mother’s and father’s… in Christ. 


11 Prescribe and teach these things. 12 Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe. 13 Until I come, give attention to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation and teaching. 14 Do not neglect the spiritual gift within you, which was bestowed on you through prophetic utterance with the laying on of hands by the presbytery. 15 Take pains with these things; be absorbed in them, so that your progress will be evident to all. 16 Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in these things, for as you do this you will ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you. (1 Timothy 4)


Perversion breached the threshold of what God saw to be good.  All creation was initially created as good because God is good.  A spiritually evil agenda manifested through the tongue of a serpent.  How can what was evil breach that which is good?  The answer I’ve discovered is, “choice”.  Although I myself am governed to live with the choices I’ve made did not choose to have this life.  It was given by nature of design.  Recognizing this has saved me from death, to commit suicide.  Yah.. I’ve thought of myself being taller with muscles to spare and intellect not compared, but to what gain?  I’m thankful to have life born in Eternity with God than a life breached by a threshold to sin.  Confess yourself to God.  I love you.

I see you, you see Me

Chemistry

“Whoa!”.  “What is this, I feel!?”.  “I didn’t like you, but now… It’s real!”.  “What is this… Chemistry?  ‘It’s foreign.'”.  “Where did it come from?”.  “I see you, you see me.”.  “Our mouths are not moving, but the truth ‘speaks’.”.  “I’m convicted, ‘flee!’.”.  “But the passion of my heart burns to see!”. “Who says ‘no’ to this ecstasy?”.  “So where is my ‘angle’?”.  “When is the time and how will I know?”.  “This ‘taste’, to be liked.”.  “I’m sought to be known!”.  “The venom is piercing from vein to bone!”.  “I’m losing control!”.  “Help me, God!”.  “There’s nowhere to go!”. 

Profile

Adolescence, doesn’t seem to fit the profile of it’ definition.  There is a period between puberty into maturity, but at what age is the point of maturity?  Although I didn’t reach puberty until a junior in high school.  I was educated by design that procreation was pleasure.  I was not educated about the spiritual meaning.  Marriage is a covenant.  The pleasures of this life are fleeting.  So I occupied myself with mischievous thoughts and fantasies of malpractice.  I think our adolescent profiles need to change, or rather, become educated about the spiritual aspect to our adolescence.  Reader, I’ll need your help if you agree.  If we had been educated about the spiritual aspect of our changing nature and desire during youth could have prevented a series of mistakes that effect everything.  But without you, Reader.  Can a spec of dust effect the vast universe of particles?  After all, that is all of what I am.  A spec of dust; vapor in the wind (if you will), amidst the cosmic order of creation.  So the purpose to influence a person or society with change is next to hitting the lottery, in comparison.  What is the protocol for telling people about their salvation by way of Jesus Christ sending the Holy Spirit into their life?  The “instruction manual” (Bible) for this procedure is very difficult to understand without someone to teach me the truth about my nature and desires.  I’ll need help.

Scenario

Have you ever been unexpectedly forgiven, loved and cherished after confessing certain truths about mistakes that were made?  Knowing already, that the answer to your own question is “undeserving of forgiveness and justifiably deemed unworthy of deliverance from whatever the consequence”?  I have been unexpectedly forgiven.  Reader, my prayer is that you’ll know for yourself, “…have mercy on me, a sinner.”.  My saint of a grandmother forgave me from what I deserved.  Why?  I didn’t deserve a place in her life.  She had every right to send me on my way.  But, she gave me life.  It has been difficult for me to make sense of this.  I’d taken advantage of her gift to care; shelter over my head, clothes on my back, food in my belly, and water to quench the flame.  I “snuck” a lesbian[?] stripper into her home.  And that is but one scenario among others to my shame.  In the processes of my weaknesses; God granted me mercy, forgiveness, and is still healing me to His glory.  I pray this post finds you in your struggle as not only telling you “I can relate”, but that Jesus related beyond relation to the extent of dying… experiencing this place of death although innocent.  Sin is not worth the troubled whispers of lies that only prove a fearful expectation.  There is an expected award for obedience which also means an expected consequence for disobedience.  No different than our prisons in this life, am confident of a prison in the next.  The church is the devils playground; salvation is the game, and vulnerability, his poise.  I see more and more teachers, leaders, and preachers pressed to the limit of their heart’ desires and pride as “untouched by sin because of grace”.  My spirit aches and mourns because of unconfessed sins.  People that fear their own reputation instead of God.  

Secretary

Will the King of a palace say to his trusted counsel, -“Help!  My ‘eye’ is on a woman that is not the Queen”-.  And will the counsel dare reply the King, -“We will pluck that woman out, my King! It is a sin against God; turn from it, and be healed.”-.  Now with the Spirit of God, the Secretary perceived the King’s desire and said to herself, -“God, how should I move, or should I? The King’s eye is upon me. What of my husband? ‘Would he listen or be willing to understand?’. And… what of our family?”-.  This Secretary is the “breadwinner” of her family and the husband a stay at home dad.  This King is good looking and could position this Secretary as Queen.  The Queen says, -“God, my God, thank you for leaving Your palace for the sake of my salvation. Please teach me how You are to be honored in my marriage and position to this throne. Give my Husband the wisdom to lead as You have served.”.  The palace of this kingdom has been compromised by lust but each character has a decision to be made.  Every character is at risk of having to sacrifice something; reputation (eye), life, wealth, and love.

Help

Reader, you are reading this post for a reason.  I’m thankful for the relationship we can have even in this connection of “words on screen”.  I’ve underestimated the power of escape that God provides through knowing His Son by way of the Holy Spirit.  There is always an escape from the desire of sinful practice luring beneath the surface of our skin.  There is a consequential experience (awakening) to a reality that was left covered for a reason.  The mystery to life beyond the grave is real.  My conscience has been torn and ripped apart too many times to sit around for a “well spoken of” reputation that remains enslaved to evil devices common to man.  There is an escape!  Because my God says so!

 

River Course to Recovery

Featured photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 

Re:generation

Monday’s are when Laura and I meet at Watermark only to be separated by a program that takes us on a journey to recovery from struggles (or spiritual diseases that eat away at our psyche).  To name a few:

  • Abused (Physically/Verbally/Emotionally/Sexually)
  • Abortion
  • Acceptance/ fear of rejection
  • Anger/Rage/Escalation
  • Anxiety
  • Body image
  • Cheating
  • Critical Spirit/Complaining
  • Debt
  • Defined by my past
  • Divorce/Separation
  • Drugs/Substance Abuse/Pills
  • Drunkenness
  • Emotional dependency
  • Evil thoughts/actions
  • Fear
  • Greed/Selfishness/Love of Money
  • Insecurity
  • Isolation/Withdraw
  • Lust
  • Lying/Deceit/Dishonesty
  • Masturbation
  • Pride/Self Righteousness
  • Sexual immorality/fornication
  • Stress
  • Unforgiveness
  • Voyeurism
  • Worry

The list is much longer, alarming, and questioning, but stem from three main roots identifiable here.  The program is a heavy load to bear, but worth it.  I’ll assure you.  The step group of men I’ve been assigned with have just completed the “3rd Step” heading into “Inventory” (4th Step) to a 12 Step—year long process for understanding, healing, and change.  Inventory is where I’ll be enduring the “max” weight of the process, with my band of brothers to “spot” the weight.  This is the equivalent of what it takes to be a Navy Seal but from a spiritual perspective.  The determination that qualifies my recovery is entirely between me and the Holy Spirit of God.  Will I qualify?

Spiritual Warfare

warfareRaised attending church and later even considered a PK (Preacher’s kid); having been sexually molested and abused as a child; medicated the majority of my life for ADD/ADHD (Ritalin, Strattera, Adderall, and Vyvanse); devastated by my parents divorce, depressed and confused; addicted to pornography; emotionally and physically manipulated and abused; exposed to and experienced sexual misconduct and immorality; disowned family while abandoned by family; experienced drugs and transported; the hypocrite of hypocrites; liar and deceiver, hiding my pain with the guilt of others shame; holes in my doors and walls, angry at everything; dead to the world with literal broken bones, hydrocodone, and time to kill; finally, the truth is but a question still, “Am I Forgiven?”.  I’ve said to myself over and over again, “‘But’ this.  And, ‘but’ that.”.  In response to not understanding or trusting that I’m truly loved by God.  So for me to accept a truth that such evil could be forgiven, was intolerable, “It can’t be!  Impossible!  How?”.  I’d make the claim, “My sexual reproductive system ‘justifies’ the act of my ‘second glance’ that deems me guilty of committing adultery according to the preacher’s preaching.”.  Then I must be already on a river course to Hell.  Why would this life permit such evil “freedoms” in respect of (not getting caught) governmental laws and city ordinances that would convict me otherwise, if not to subtly and discreetly enjoy?  So, my flesh would say in its sin, “What happens in this life ‘stays’ in this life.”, after all, “It’s forgiven.”.  Reader, do you hear that pride?  According to biblical standards; offering up my blood as payment for a place in the Kingdom of God will not suffice for a Holy God and will have to (justifiably) come to a verdict, “guilty of sin”.  I am incapable of bearing the weight of my sin and no amount of money will free me from the truth within the “needle” (death penalty) that awaits me.  Have I been abandoned by God?

Qualified

Around the age of 16 I’d disowned my dad (Jim Dooley) and denounced him to the “biological father” status with an agenda to prove the point.  When my dad would approach me with open arms for a hug, I’d refuse; or again with a hand shake, in public, still refuse.  On my graduation day in front of all my fellow classmates and peers had my name called out as my step-dad’s last name, “Powell”.  To make it clear with my legal name change that I would have nothing to do with Jim.  It wasn’t until I was so broken (literally) alone in my home, finding a letter from my dad that wrote “I love you” all over the face of it and inside, the desired expression to have a “relationship again”.  When I had first received this card, I’d thrown it aside thinking it not to be found ever again… Until.  There is a part of the story with powerful significance to this letter that will have to come in a later post.  Amidst the lies of the enemy that would cloud my judgment and ability to discern right from wrong realized I had the ability to forgive Jim.  It had nothing to do with anything my dad had done wrong.  Only the fact that I had the power to forgive.  Get this!  Even having the knowledge of all that has been done wrong in not only my life, but my family’s, left me in a position to choose the next step.  Will I forgive it all?  All that was presented and lain before you in my life above.  Have I forgiven it? And, am I forgiven?  I broke down sobbing with snot and tears when realizing that God was speaking to me in that letter, “I love you” — “I hope to have a relationship with you again”.  My lust, pride, and insecurities had me blind to the nature of God as my Father.  It was not until the “prodigal son” would call his dad asking the right to his last name again, “Dooley”, that I’d taken the step to become a prodigal son of my Heavenly Father.  The most difficult part about forgiveness is trusting its integrity.  It was only until yesterday that I’d decided to truly trust the Word of God without a “but” to deter my focus from that truth.  That faith in The Word of God, is how I’m qualified!


12 His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. 13 He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.


 

Nathan’s Change of Course

Hi, my name is Nathan. … “Since birth my life has been a winding river changing direction with no end in sight or ‘right’ turn to make.  That-about-sums-it-up.  Until next time.  Peace be with you.”—

 

 

 

It’s funny, I’ve felt that as being heavily the case for this blog site and especially my life here recently.  Thinking to myself, “How can a confused person write blogs about direction without direction?”.  If you’re laughing?  I’m “chuckling” with you in embarrassment, “brushing off the dust of my pride”.  I’ve changed course to a new direction or rather, “the direction of my river has changed course by no power of mine“.  If you’ve “stumbled” across this site as result of this post for the first time, it’s nice to meet you.  Don’t run off.  Consider exploring through the “menu”.  If you’re familiar with this site, please consider revisiting the “menu items” and prepare to be inspired by the changes only a real God influences!  We are seriously loved!

Reader, I have questions coming from way up high, “Left, no.. Right field! Right field”!  What river path of life are you on?  (You will get a glimpse of my path by investigating this site as an example but hope will discover my heart as true in the process?).  Do you know the spiritual direction of your life?  (I know that my spiritual direction has brought me to “here and now” writing to you.).  Why has our courses clashed?  (That is a theory that only one person in the world has proved.).

Are you willing to join me on a journey?  Please, invite your family and bring your friends to explore your answers to these questions.  Our journey will renew the mind and take us out of this world!

 

 

Session 3 – An Interviewing by God

Featured photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 


Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die!” 10 But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips. (Job 2)


I understand Job to be an illustration of our present day global suffering to the individual adversities each of us share.  Just as Job had experienced the loss of nearly everything, it wasn’t finished.  Evil has a strategic agenda to confuse the truth with lies, and thereby, challenges our devotion to what is good and righteous.  As long as our hearts receives the approval of those we care so deeply for rather than receiving from the only One Who matters, we’re lost and without understanding; in danger of fearing the wrath of God at the coming of His Son.

Although the wife of Job insists to “Curse God and die!“.  Job is not manipulated by the love he has for his wife; because God supplied and took away what was necessary for this process of understanding the truth of God.  Someone tell me.

  • How did Job come to life?  – Was it not through suffering?

11 Now when Job’s three friends heard of all this adversity that had come upon him, they came each one from his own place, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite; and they made an appointment together to come to sympathize with him and comfort him. 12 When they lifted up their eyes at a distance and did not recognize him, they raised their voices and wept. And each of them tore his robe and they threw dust over their heads toward the sky. 13 Then they sat down on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights with no one speaking a word to him, for they saw that his pain was very great. (Job 2)


We will not find truth in succumbing to the flattery of friends, nor by believing the accusations against us by self-righteous friends.  However, as Job goes through the turmoil of Satan discovers the character of God and His immense power.  Don’t give up where you are and don’t make the mistake of being someone else’s “god” for the sake of easing their pain.  Live by the understanding that the grace given by God abounds the sins of your life.  Confess and contend with God, but understand this truth, Job repented in dust and ashes when God showed up!  Do you, or we, think, that our place is not the same as Job’s.  Or are you so arrogant as a son or daughter of Satan, to challenge the character of another based on what God has provided for them, and not you?  I pray this is not confused with partiality or being favored by what is given materially, for we all equally have the opportunity at receiving the gift of God.  What have you chosen over that gift?  

Interviewed by God – Session 2

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them. The Lord said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.” The Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil.” (Job 1)


Reader (listener), indulge me, you are the character of Job.  I, the writer, will entertain the character of Satan [….scary thought].


Then Satan answered the Lord, “Does Job fear God for nothing? 10 Have You not made a hedge about him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. 11 But put forth Your hand now and touch all that he has; he will surely curse You to Your face.” 12 Then the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him.” So Satan departed from the presence of the Lord. (Job 1)


Take notice how “Satan” and “Jesus” refer to “God”.  What does it mean to fear God?

Satan:

•”Job, I see your potential and how the fruit of your integrity will produce a bountiful return.  Once dead; people will learn of this character you seem to possess, they will discover how God is good; the seed of your fruit will effect the world, but soon will become confused.”


20 Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head, and he fell to the ground and worshiped. 21 He said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked I shall return there. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.” 22 Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God. (Job 1)


Satan:

•”Interesting, surely you must be experiencing the weight of a heavy depression.  At this point I’ve distorted the view of right and wrong; knowledge of good and evil is my heaven; yet you think, or seem to have thought to own the right of understanding what is impossible for man to understand.  After all, you were sacrificing for your kids, why, thinking what?  That they would have favor with God and not die in their sins?  What of you, Job?  Do you think you’ll find favor with God by maintaining your integrity?  Now to get you vulnerable; vulnerable enough, to set you up, for my success.  I’ll need access to your soul.  It’s time to present myself again, before Jesus.”


Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the Lord. The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.” The Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man fearing God and turning away from evil. And he still holds fast his integrity, although you incited Me against him to ruin him without cause.” Satan answered the Lord and said, “Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has he will give for his life. However, put forth Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh; he will curse You to Your face.” So the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, he is in your power, only spare his life.” (Job 2)


Satan:

•”Ah Job, you may believe your skin God has rapped you in, preserves your life for salvation, but the sting of death is sin, and the sin of your beginning is mine.  I so look forward to devouring you; to manipulate your emotions, confuse your psyche, and inflict what you fear.  The salvation of preservation is my advantage to use as a means to set the world up at my right hand in the place called, Hell.  Don’t worry, Job. ‘You’re so important to me’.”

 

[stay tuned…]

Interviewed by God – Session 1

Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said, “Who is this that darkens counsel By words without knowledge? “Now gird up your loins like a man, And I will ask you, and you instruct Me! (Job 38)


A true character of integrity is accomplished by humility.  Do you experience grasping at questions of meaning for your life, and or, life after death?  What does your past compare to Job’s?  And what does your current status or bodily condition compare to Job’s?  Have you reached a place of seeking the presence of the Almighty to explain reasons of things too wonderful for us to understand?  It may be because you’re being interviewed by God for either a promotion or demotion.


Then the Lord said to Job, “Will the faultfinder contend with the Almighty? Let him who reproves God answer it.” Then Job answered the Lord and said, “Behold, I am insignificant; what can I reply to You? I lay my hand on my mouth. “Once I have spoken, and I will not answer; Even twice, and I will add nothing more.” (Job 40)


What is the root cause for your reason to object God on His terms for hire?  What if God sees you perfect and upright, still choosing to turn away from evil despite the mark of sin in your life?  And, so, what if God permits Satan the test of sudden destruction on your livelihood, family, and health so that your spirit may be proved belonging to Him all along, saved, bearing the mark of salvation that was always present with you for eternity with Him.  Please, don’t bother sending God your resume.  He will come visit you where you are and examine for Himself the qualifications you have, to freely live, as God set in motion for you to receive.  Let us see how you will contend against God, to reprove God.

We need to remember the One, Who blessed us with what we have.  Don’t lose sight of God by the distraction of whatever kind of pain we’re presently experiencing.  He has provided the way for a promotion.  Stay tuned.

 

The Balance

Untitled-1-21-18_BenJacobi

Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. 10 For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. 11 Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone? 12 And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12


It’s attractive … Isn’t it. To live like gods; being judge and juror of our very own live story; determining right from wrong and implementing those standards as laws to be enforced, or the ultimatum. Written off as insignificant like a stand alone tree waiting to die for the sake of being finished…..”what is the point?”. Swearing an oath to an unknown God to “tell the truth, nothing but the truth, so help me”. Complying with societies evolvement for the sake of harmony while it institutes the influence of a One World America, only, with multiple labels. Can you feel the desire to establish dominance? Intimidate by way of provoking to “fear” the one…that falls, alone. Evil says, “Now, I have control; their emotions are at my disposal, worship me!”. Again, Evil speaks, “The coin is my tact and their emotion…my desire.”. And once more, Evil utters, “How shall I groom this Wife of God’s Son for my pleasure, this, ‘mother of all living’ who stands alone?“.

God is the Canyon that provides shelter and a balanced environment for the Caddo Maple tree that signifies our creation is not alone; looking at our photo from Ben. As soon as we think ourselves to be something when we are nothing, we become vulnerable to the deception of not needing our shelter. When we are unlearned; undereducated about the way our emotional make-up is; leaves us without the shelter of God to protect our environment and for evil to achieve its’ purpose. Just as our countries are vulnerable to the seduction of sexy whispers to commit acts of violence…so too are we susceptible to the belief of correcting it, alone.


1 Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But each one must examine his own work, and then he will have reason for boasting in regard to himself alone, and not in regard to another. For each one will bear his own load. The one who is taught the word is to share all good things with the one who teaches him. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. 10 So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.”– Galatians 6:1-10


I pray we do not mistake knowing where our predator is and how to antidote the course of an evil nature, into good. As parents we either fail to appropriately educate our youth about their sexuality as they experience unfamiliar chemical processes within their bodies to practice self-control or shy away from it because our youth becomes blushed at finding out that we know, “what is going on”! This grievous failure as self-controlled mature adults carries over into prostitution, molestation, rape, murder, bestiality, lying, lawlessness, incarceration, suicide! WHERE IS OUR CARE?!! There are barriers, boundaries, and “SHELTER” for a reason! We need to educate and protect our youth! Also, on that same line of education and protection we need to immerse the love of God on the person or people that appears to be predators. But our predator does not come in the form of flesh and blood, but will use our flesh and blood to destroy and devour the lives around us to achieve its desire. We must master that! Let’s live in the balance of the God of our salvation in Jesus Christ!

A false balance is an abomination to the Lord,
But a just weight is His delight.
When pride comes, then comes dishonor,
But with the humble is wisdom. Proverbs 11:1-2

 

Educational Genius

NASA may educate on our temporarily ever evolving world and universe, but what about outside of time? And Elon Musk may have designed and engineered SpaceX and explore the vast cosmos to discover the future, but what about eternality? When will we become educated on life beyond time, and the cosmos? How will technology advance to communicate with God and recognize the sound of His voice? What is knowledge?

“This is where you want to be”- as the movie “The Greatest Showman” would sing in exclamation! Check it out…where we are here and now on Earth is the greatest show of God’s glory at work, but nothing to compare with the glory we’ll experience with Him after our dream reality here. Pray that the heightened high of this life doesn’t consume us in idolatry. There is a responsibility when claiming the belief of having the gift of an eternal life. To become the least bit educated about life’s afterlife we’ll need to kill you (just kidding – don’t drink the Kool-Aid). We’ll need to trust God at His Word. Our enemies approach to devour and destroy life as we know it is to challenge our trust when completely devoted to God.

Enemy: “kshh – commence operation drink the Kool-Aid”; “kshh – that’s uh big 10/4”

Right now, at this very moment and moments after there is someone experiencing the agonizing torment of torture that brings so much pleasure to an evil characteristic demon feeding off that persons pain. This is a Salvational Engineer’s war against what is not flesh and blood. How do we combat against something we do not see? Watch this! Each of us have a chemical response to what we feel, touch, taste, see, and hear that floods our God given mind to reason. An enemy with the know-how to instill the chemical virus of catastrophic events in a person’s life will break them down to control their environment until that pleasure of sin, is satisfied. To give you an example of this would be painfully “R-rated”, but we need help to fight the right enemy! ….It will come in a future blog. The verse every Salvational Engineer should memorize is Genesis 4:7.


If you do well, will not your countenance be lifted up? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is for you, but you must master it.”


The desire of sin in our lives, is at the door of our own “skins”. And each and every soul is gifted with the responsibility to steward their bodies according to the will of God’s awesome design. That design is written in the blood of “LOVE“. So, we shouldn’t make the mistake in thinking that the dust beneath our feet is all there is….just because the color doesn’t quite replicate the color of “Gold” we’ll eventually walk on. Revelation 21:21.


And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the gates was a single pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.


The Holy Spirit in our believing souls will educate us on eternal matters if we’re willing to listen, focus, and respond appropriately to the call of “Jesus”, the ‘Salvational Engineer’! The Spirit of Jesus is living in our transformed souls to educate us about all things. Not just about our salvation from this life. And just as there is a law demanding order here, there is a law demanding order there. How do we think that serpent knew to ask questions that would ultimately cause our condemnation? That serpent had knowledge that we did not yet have! No matter, our God is the wisdom of knowledge and Creator of it….so what do we have to fear when “brow-beating” our opponent. Thanks be to God we have the gift of an eternal life through the Body and Blood of Jesus to get to know the Holy Spirit that enlightens us to the truth about His Genius! Read the gospel of John….that is our assignment as we spare in the ring of the invisible. Always in the love of Christ….

Conversion

Welcome to the point in ones life where a human being is baptized with fire. Eat the Words of the living God and experience the Holy Spirit give new life to a believing soul in Christ our Lord the King, Jesus. Feel the energy as our bodies digest the Word of Life. Death stings like fire when burning away at the flesh of our sin. Conversion is a painful process, but a necessary one! Because…in our flesh, all experience an infallible truth.

EnergyHeader photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 

I pray we do not make the same mistakes in thinking the simple step to believing is an easy process to conversion when dealing with the divine and obtaining the gift of an eternal life! Have you inquired to know the answers for the reasons a professing Christian would still commit sinful acts upon being saved from them? It seems quite hypocritical from a worldly perspective. There is a clash of good and evil at work in the realms above that a converted soul will enter into without even realizing if neglected from the surrounding members of faith in Jesus. From a fellow earthly author’s point of view to our Christian faith, this devastates me! Because of the fear for our own lives rather than another’s. So we shrink back into a worse condition of pain than where we were in previously. Alright, if we are willing…lets change that and break the cycle right now to be the transformed creature God knows us to be! Are we ready?

Please grab a Bible and walk with Jesus as He explains to us the reasons for our experiences. [As we learn about our “trash” along the way, we’ll know whether to recycle or burn it]. Here we go. 


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:1-5


Jesus is the “Word” talked about here as being “God” and was with God when giving life to all creation and breathing into the nostrils of Mankind (Adam) at the beginning. And that breath, or life of God, is the “Light” of men and women together. A woman is honored in that she is protected from view for the sake of her glory to one man. Just as a wife’s maiden name is covered by the last name of her husband, so too is the picture here when seeing “men” rather than women in the text. Women are married to men in honor of their true husband, Jesus our Lord, the King; and women are the glory of men. And as a man writing…think it appropriate to speak for all men thanking God so much for our women (whether single or married we belong to the Man who died for the converted in Christ Jesus). That actually brings us to the beginning, in Genesis. Please open to Genesis and read chapters 1-3 of the Bible.


22 The Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. 23 The man said,

“This is now bone of my bones,
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called Woman,
Because she was taken out of Man.”

24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed. Genesis 2:22-25


As you read through those chapters Jesus will show you where we went wrong at the very beginning; and also the reason we are still going strong in the wrong, even now. To sin means we missed the mark which caused our condemnation and separation from our source of life. Our source of life was not given by Adam and Eve, but by God (alone). However, we have unfortunately inherited Adam and Eve’s death that leads to condemnation or judgement into Hell; because God is Holy and a Good Father protecting His children from that wrath to come on those not truly converted from death to life; don’t be a serpent that would manipulate the truth in order to deceive. So how do we know that we are truly converted? Please turn to Romans 3 in the Bible.


19 Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God; 20 because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin 21 But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; 25 whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. Romans 3:19-25


God commanding the man not to eat from that which would kill him to protect His creation, assigned the man to be a faithful steward against the evil that existed as a result of freewill within the realms of eternity; “For through the Law comes the knowledge of sin“. Personally…I’d prefer to be alive with a choice to a purpose, rather than artificially made without a purpose to choose life; that may be the difference between a conscious conscience and a clay vessel or metal tool. Thankfully in our God’s awesome love and wisdom decided to send His Obedient Son to die on the cross in the place of our condemnation that separated us from our God and Father. Jesus, in the Holy Spirit was “displayed publicly as a propitiation” to reconcile us by way of grace through faith. So if we are acknowledging being a part of a fallen world in sin and are confessing ourselves to be sinners in need of “redemption“, then we’ve begun the process to conversion. Please turn to Acts chapter 2 of the Bible.


22 “Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know— 23 this Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death. 24 But God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power. Acts 2:22-24


If you have honestly looked into your life to see the shame of our condition with a question of meaning…then look to the cross of the King of the Jews, Jesus Christ. Because there is where you’ll see the answer to our shame; it was nailed to the cross. God took our sin and placed it on His Only True Son that obeyed Him even to the point of the most agonizing death….that we should have died. Now we may say to ourselves that we are still dying, which would be true, but the ransom we could not pay to enter a life with God in Christ was the ultimate agony. Not death in and of itself. Now, thanks be to God our Father in Christ Jesus we can confidently enter into life with our brothers and sisters who hear and believe this good news! Do we believe this? Then what must we do? Please continue reading on in same chapter of Acts.


36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified. 37 Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brethren, what shall we do? 38 Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself.” 40 And with many other words he solemnly testified and kept on exhorting them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation!” 41 So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls. Acts 2:36-41


Fix our eyes within the Holy text above and witness the work of God. This is our point of conversion upon receiving “the gift of the Holy Spirit.“. It doesn’t matter whether we’ve disobeyed our parents as children, fornicated in the flesh of our mind at youth, or are the most wealthiest powerful people on the planet as adults. All are unworthy as trash, but there is a huge BUT — because God has given us the opportunity at an eternal life with Him as our Father; this is what it means to be a part of a family of believers in Jesus Christ. Amen. So, lets jump in the fire of the Holy Spirit. {not literally into fire}.


10 The axe is already laid at the root of the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.11 “As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 12 His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” Matthew 3:10-12

Unbelievers Transformation Process

Have we discovered the answer to the question of whether God took Enoch from his wife and children in the previous blog? It seems a bit contradictory if not only taken away from that which God joined together, but also from the consequence of tasting death like the rest of us. All have sinned, right? So why are we enduring the consequence of death rather than to continue on in life? Why doesn’t God just enlighten us to the truth about our need for salvation, then save us from death, and bring us to Himself explaining in the way we will understand without having to experience the process? Has anyone ever discovered the answers within the questions? Please consider predestined freewill and that God is not limited by the many words of mankind. We’ll come back to that.


Storm on the Plains

Those considering themselves to be without belief please reconsider. This blog pleads with you to set aside your foresight and just breathe as you read. Don’t become worried or anxious about anything and don’t think “the author is making the mistake of not practicing what is written”. It is time to meet our Creator so please introduce your soul to the Holy Spirit of God. God, I pray for the soul reading this prayer and ask that the Spirit of Your living Word be in the midst of this writing, amen.

It is not through grandiose words in prayer that manifest the proof of God. Prayer is acknowledging that you can’t physically fly or breathe underwater, and that God is not a Genie to expect a wish from. God is the living knowledge about all of creation with a holy desire for all of creation; life’s order, design, chaos, condition, wisdom, love, and eternality. And with every breath…..we breathe life, given by God. So by living in unbelief are we emotionally responding by that choice or is it safeguarding behind the delusion of innocence to divert from the truth about our existence. And then how would we approaprately correct that? Does that mean to become weak and surrender for correction, or, run in terror from the emotional aspect of life — knowing we are all loved by God. If loved by God, what does that mean? To recognize we are vulnerable and mean nothing without God. How do we identify with being a believer now from the purpose we resorted to before? What does it mean to be conditioned as a believing Christian?

To become consciously aware that we are loved by God puts us at a “Fight or Flight” response. We will either fight against vulnerability or run from it because we are “wild”. Compare it to breaking a horse from the wild. In order to ride and navigate a horse we must break the pattern of its’ wild nature, and form a respected bond. Hopefully this process lets the horse know….its needed for a higher purpose; which would go against its natural ability to be wild by nature. Does the horse ever consider the power it has against the person trying to break its’ assumed natural response to be wild? A horse could easily kill the person hoping to submit it. What if horses had the knowledge of people and decided to break people for the horses agenda (planet of the horses)? Anyway, hold that train of thought because that is exactly what the serpent did to deceive the woman in the garden. And also what caused Mankind to kill God. Not because Mankind is more powerful than God, but because of the command not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil didn’t apply to the (crafty) serpent. And without understanding being deceived, Mankind broke the command of their God given nature and killed the Son of God. To clothe Mankind with skin….something had to die. Our skin represents our sin and our sin represents our eternal condemnation and separation from God and that represents our death and death represents the dust of the ground and the dust of ground represents the condition of Mankind. Yet…God knew this…and we are living to witness His Infinite Glory and experience His Everlasting Love.

What happens when a child grows up to be an adult? There becomes a subtle nature and condition of, or to, superiority. A father figure and son figure are subconsciously aware of the alpha adult, but by nature the son has discovered his adulthood and puffs up with pride. Tangent — throw two sons the same age (good and evil) into the mix; one son submits to the aged father while the other decides to challenge the right to alpha. Although these two sons are the same age…the one that challenges the right to alpha is the older and evil because of the pride in thinking he had to earn or give up that right to become something he already was (or already had equal rights to with the father because the son is an adult).

If we are a son or daughter of God choosing not to believe the relationship we have to our Father….then we must be ready for marriage. Because we think ourselves adults capable of handling the worlds chaotic condition without help from our parents; societal orchestrating, national reasoning, vegetation and atmospheric conditioning….not to mention the rest of cosmos-ing. There is a reason for the name of Jesus as we know Him and it is not just because He died for the sins of Mankind; it is because He is the Husband of our faith—God in the form of Man (Son Jesus) resurrected Mankind to His Father giving us equality with Him as children of His reign. Through the name of Jesus we are bonding with our Creator to know Him as Father. Seeking to make sense of it all as children would ask of their parents; was I really created for “a higher purpose” (relationship) or does that mean “I’m submitting to a form of control and manipulation” once married?

The risk to continue in unbelief has eternal consequences. Compare it to a tattoo….what is chosen will leave an articulate scar on our body until we are dead and decayed. That is why the scars in Jesus were still there after His resurrection — those scars are me and you because God had chosen to love us before the foundation of the world and to the point of sending His Only Son in our place on that cross, to prove it. And so that leaves us with a choice….because these very moments will determine the fate of our individual eternity’s. Are you seeking after God for your answers? You are not alone.

Big Game 2018 Super Bowl LII

Philadelphia Eagles vs New England Patriots

What are the salvational engineers doing for the Big Game effecting all of America from Minneapolis, February 4? We are throwing away trash and picking it up following. The Big Game should provide a great time and opportunity for engaging in some “real talk” while entertained. Wherever it is anyone finds themselves doing during this projected $338.4 million net event impact on the Twin Cities, hope becomes an awesome experience for everyone.

Thinking on Sunday night football; the strategy each team brings to the field, the players prestige and potential advancement. All of the study and coaching to lifestyle and practice come down to these moments of fame for every player on the field and person watching. Which team is your pick, and why? Pause. Every person watching or distractedly watching will have moments to impact the lives surrounding us that are of much more value than $300 million.

There is a football game going on in the heavens right now. And, each of us are players with a skill set and strategy. Let’s break it down; check this out. Our team name is Eagiots (Eagles/Patriots); the opposing team Serpevils. Now the field is located in New Jerusalem, City of Salvation. Team captain Jesus of the Eagiots won the coin toss, heads. Huddle up, huddle up! Every play counts, so make the right decision. “What is the right decision?”, the team asks. “Follow my lead.”, Jesus says. Alright, lets do this! Team captain for Serpevils goes by the name of Lucifer who appears to have the same jersey, but don’t mistake the characteristics of our opposing team nor their agenda. Which is to devour the championship we’ve already won. Pay close attention to detail because every moment is victory when the ball is in our hands.

Look to the end zones and tell me what you see written in them. “Salvation”. Alright, here is our play. The strategy of Serpevils defense is to deceive you in thinking there is no salvation for us, no “touchdown!”. And as your captain, am here to tell you that is a lie from the devil himself! Don’t believe the question and remember the answer of Who cares about this team, Your Captain does. And, believe me, we won’t lose! That is a promise — receive it and score salvation! What is salvation? It is not just knowing how to play the game, but it is the relationship of the game. Nothing can beat you when understanding the relationship between you and the game. What relationship? The intimate relationship between our team, the ball, and the end zone. When one player enters the end zone, we all receive the victory. “Take it from your captain”. “It’s a gift received, not won”. The opposing team will lead you to believe you have to win the game to receive the trophy, but I’m telling you, I bought that trophy before both teams started playing. Don’t play the game just for the trophy. Understand the relationship between you and the game because there is where you’ll find the true trophy. Challenge yourself to improve the skills of your teammates. Only one team is mine and the other Lucifer’s. Which team are you on? The captain of the opposing team only wants victory for himself and not his team. Do you know which team you are on?

 

UnBelievers Nature

Engineers:

Look how distinct nature is. Not everything is black and white as the law would depict, but look how the contrasts compliment each other. Is it not, too precious, to try and describe with words? So I encourage instead, to describe it by experience. Take time in silence and just … “feel” … the energy of nature.

Black Neck Stilt

21 Enoch lived sixty-five years, and became the father of Methuselah.22 Then Enoch walked with God three hundred years after he became the father of Methuselah, and he had other sons and daughters.23 So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years.24 Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him. Genesis 5:21-24

After syncing with nature. Think on this question based on the biblical verses above. Did God take Enoch from his wife … leaving her to tend to all their children, alone? 


Unbelievers,

Since the previous blog, have we discovered truth that satisfies the soul? There is a reason and purpose to the nature of which we live. And as we stop in nature’s course, look to its ground in humility. Do you see our reflection? In it we will discover the majesty of God’s design. If you haven’t found a Bible or someone with a Bible. I encourage you to find one and look into the Word of God with us. Because we are going into the mystery of God together, and His Word does not return void. Watch.

The reason for the word “reflection” was not meant in the perception of looking at yourself through a mirror or “off” water. When we look at the dust of the ground and handle it between our fingers, we are experiencing our reflection. Because we were made from the dust and to dust we will return. We reflect death because of our unbelief and we experience danger; seeming threatened, because of our lack of faith. In the beginning God reassures us of the redemption from this mistake of disobedience and unbelief.

As we continue to look at our reflection. We remember when the enemy questioned us and the reason we became deceived? Remember when (we) Eve said, “From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat;but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’”? Emphasize ontouch it“. Where did that addition come from? How is Eve an adequate helper to her husband if not permitted to touch the tree? This is all theoretical of course, but being a husband myself would understand the innate nature of Adam to condition the warning from God to protect his wife, “don’t even touch it”. However, I think that also left his wife vulnerable to believe that which was not of God or her husband. Remember, we have a God Who knows what He is doing. What did God tell man? God knew the time was coming for the fruit to be eaten because he orchestrated it knowing what that would mean!…Separation. Does that mean God orchestrated us to sin? No. The orchestration is God having seen all that He created as good, including the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Sin was made available, but not orchestrated for us to commit the act thereof. And; because God understood what we didn’t about sin, knew that we would experience it upon committing the act of believing the serpent of evil. However, thankfully we have an Awesome Husband (that sounds weird being a man, haha, but it makes sense) that is teaching us the way of truth! God knew and knows how to redeem us from that instance of an inevitable decision even to the present moment of sins course.

Man was called Adam, before God saw that it was not good for him to be alone and purposed to create his suitable helper. A male is incomplete without a female in the nature of creation. So then after God presented the female to the male; Man called her, Woman. And it wasn’t until after their mutual agreement of disobedience to consequences, that Adam called his wife’s name, Eve (mother of all living). Now although children were in the foresight of God to complete the Holy Family, that child was not yet born. But we are still talking creation here. Peering into the womb so-to-speak, of creation. Because man will “leave” his father and mother and cleave unto his wife. This is why there are two deaths, but that is for another time.

This creation process appears to relate as the beginning stages of spiritual maturity or material “puberty”? When the serpent presented Eve with a question; her belief was frail, fragile, and needed a man aka husband to step along side her, affirming her status and equality with him as having the power to shut that serpents mouth. She had the authority to tell that serpent to, “go to Hell!”. However, bear in mind the design of our Father. How can we understand the authority unless exercised? And how can we “discern” good from evil unless acquiring the “knowledge” of it. Remember, we are still His Bride! And no serpent is getting in the way of that! God is revealing His Nature; Who He is, to and for us! Preparing our wedding day! And the way He has done that…..is through His Only Son. This resembles the trinity; Father, Mother, Child! = Jesus! The Holy Spirit is preparing to present [us] the Holy Bride to our Holy Groom of faith! And this is an experience of eternal bliss or rather the anticipation for it! No different than a bride anticipating her wedding day! This is what we experience in respect to salvation.

…”Feel it?”…

UnBelievers Birth

One of Ben’s favorite quotes from his favorite photographer is “Sometimes I show up just when God is ready for someone to press the shutter” -Ansel Adams

There is so much biblical narration in that photo above it seems unreal. Wouldn’t do it justice not having it as the featured photo. Ooh.., but, to be! In the “lens”! Of a Photographer (we are (: )! Do we truly grasp the amount of hard work required to experience a photo like that? A lot. Now imagine the hard work of our “Master Designer” to set that moment up for Ben to take the shot, so we can experience that moment with him. Although, don’t know whether that compares, exactly, to a woman giving birth. But, lets go with it. It takes 9 months, for (what seems like a lifetime) of seriously painful moments to give birth to a masterpiece! From moments to years after, marveling, at the innocence of life. Then BOOM! The “Big Bang” reality check! In the midst of all that experience — there was a single moment where the umbilical cord was cut. And salvation is born! An unbelievers Genesis.


Engineers,

Lets begin. If this text is being read and understood by an unbeliever. The hope is to inspire the reason to believe. And then experience the revelation of a lifetime together! It’s time to cut the “unbiblical” cord.

Standard


Unbelievers,

There is no denying that the reader and writer have been conceived and born from the womb of a mother. And if that is something, even now, that you are trying to control whether or not to believe? Then your “author of this blog” is requesting a sit down “chess-game” conversation; only, permit me the first move. And my first move is So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.“.

Before “creation” was born, imagine the “wisdom“ of God. The Spiritual Being of God as a Person without gender — “decided” to relate in nature according to design: male and female, light and darkness, good and evil, life and death. Our God, the Awesome Creator, is the very essence of life. And desired an innocent intimate “relationship” with creation hence “virgin” “woman” to “wife” and “glorified bride”. Imagine logic in the midst of desire; what that must mean, to “feel”, or have “emotion”, but without someone to experience that with. There is a risk of wrong doing, but God “counted” the “cost“. The cost must have meant there are “consequences”, but what was the price? To establish order out of chaos there must be consequences. And the price, well, the price is payed. Creation must be “given access” to choose whether to obey. Not manipulated or controlled to choose and obey. God’s Character is established, and has chosen for Himself the creation of which we exist. And therefore is dominant to that which already existed from Him {before the ladies hurl their “thought stones” – please keep reading – because male and female complete each other without status or question of equality}. Creation appears to be as the “helper” to our “Father“. However, it’s much more in-depth than that! It is the actuality of marriage! Also, that was not meant to be received as God needing help, but rather, “incomplete” without help.

Are you seeing where the “umbilical cord” of creation exists? The only unbiblical “cord” in all of Scripture came out of the mouth of the “serpent“. We were tested with a question and failed, miserably and literally! The imagery is this: the mother of all living is Eve, the likeness and image of Adam is God and the serpent is the umbilical cord of creation. Adam was the original “soul” mate of Eve, but where was his Spirit? Do you not hear the sound of God?

So then…what next? We encounter an “option”. Being like God and of His image leaves us at risk for “uncertainty“. How? There is consequence for — evil. What then is necessary for creation not to suffer the consequence of evil? Don’t make the same mistake twice! Creation was given what the Creator already had; life and the knowledge of it! For what reason? Because of Love. God is Love!!! And He designed it as you and I are experiencing it now! This life is but “milk” to learn and grow from. The solid food and eternal life is a relationship with the Word of God! It is finished! Completed in the Name of Jesus!

Disclaimer — I have a reputation of losing chess games. However, my aim is not ever to destroy my opponents kingdom. I always win because of the relationship built in the time we played. I love you so very much! 

Believers Comprehension

Salvational Engineers,

Someone very dear to me would say, “Never read a verse from the Bible…as you would talk to a toddler”. People are at various levels of comprehension.

Untitled2_4-19-16_BenJacobi

Reminiscing, learning how to drive. Distinguish the experiences between the time with my driver’s ed instructors, and, my parents. Sometimes it is difficult for the instructor and or parent to endure the trail of a student, “just, not, getting-it!”. The instructor may become a bit condescending after a repeated correction, “Did the yellow light ‘mean’, speed up!?”. Or how about the student driving in the “right direction”, but [<– ONE WAY)] wrong way into oncoming traffic?. Haha! Anyway, thankfully, those students have grown to handle and be trusted behind the wheel of their very own 3,000-pound vehicle, without “supervision”. Or, that was the hope, at least. The point is, there is a process to maturity; whether learning “hands-on” how to drive, or, educated about the process, in the midst of it. A teenager’s desire is to be all grown up ready to take on the world, but without trail and endurance. It just doesn’t work that way.

2 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. (James 1:2-4)

Apply that concept to a person just learning about salvation. Without the various trails and testing of our faith, how would we then understand enough to relate to those just drawing their first breaths’ of salvation? Just because we know how to drive does not make us a good driver. However, the Bible likens the process of spiritual maturity to newborn babies longing for the “pure milk of the word”. So, if we can somewhat grasp the conceptual maturity process through driving then hopefully also in the consumption of food.

Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander, 2 like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation, 3 if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord. (1 Peter 2:1-3)

So. If any of us salvational engineers think ourselves wise to teach; well, this is where we are disciplined to humble ourselves, and “drink some milk” together.


If the reader finds him or herself longing to taste the kindness of our Lord, the King? Please. We salvational engineers are but “unworthy” members of His Kingdom in the midst of His nature on Earth; longing also, to meet you where you are, in the Spirit of God. Not to teach necessarily, but genuinely “disciple” attentively as God teaches us, together, about salvation.

26 These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. 27 As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. 28 Now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming. (1 John 2:26-28)

File Jan 21, 19 53 23

This is the perfect opportunity to turn our attention to the virgin Mary. Remember, this woman had no “intimate relation” with any man. And yet, God used her natural reproductive system supernaturally; producing a living being of flesh inside of her, through the procedure of the Holy Spirit. Meaning, very basically; that God in His Spirit, prepared the seed and egg in her womb to produce a (embryo to fetus) baby that would save the world, Jesus. — As we grow in familiarity to the Bible; drinking one “bottle” of milk at a time, will discover revelation after revelation of truth. Because, Jesus, is the Infinite Word and Son of God. And upon “believing” in that “Word”. We “receive” the “Holy Spirit of God” — becoming new born babies desiring the pure milk of salvation. As we feed on this “Word of God” to grow in maturity, the Holy Spirit enlightens us to the reasons for our present-day conditions, as sinners. And.., so.., “here come the convictions” at where we’ve “messed up”? Yes. However, also, here comes our “GOOD NEWS”. Not guilty.

And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to infants in Christ. 2 I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able, 3 for you are still fleshly. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking like mere men? (1 Corinthians 3:1-3)


So, check this out! — In the next blog we’ll go through the birthing process together. And in it will discover our eternity and sever the umbilical (or unbiblical) cord.

Believers Storm

Waurika Lake Thunderstorm

 Header photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 

Salvational Engineers,

draw your attention to the power and majesty from the photo above. Can you imagine being set out to sea in the presence of our Lord, the King of the universe? Not a rhyme or reason to be disturbed from the confidence we have because of His company! Until the storm. So as the storm comes, the question presents itself, where is your faith?

“ 22 Now on one of those days Jesus and His disciples got into a boat, and He said to them, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” So they launched out. 23 But as they were sailing along He fell asleep; and a fierce gale of wind descended on the lake, and they began to be swamped and to be in danger. 24 They came to Jesus and woke Him up, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” And He got up and rebuked the wind and the surging waves, and they stopped, and [f]it became calm. 25 And He said to them, “Where is your faith?” They were fearful and amazed, saying to one another, “Who then is this, that He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him?”” (Luke 8:22-25)

 

Let’s turn this around to modern day era and launch ourselves out in a boat with the President of the United States. Does the presence of our President provide the answer and example to our faith? Do military personnel risk their lives to defend what is happening in our news and to our youth? Does the governmental agencies do its’ diligence to rebuke the winds and surging waves of the outcry “Master, Master, we are perishing!”? How about, “We the People”, what are we doing? Engineers – we are just as responsible for risking our lives for the sake of truth that honors God before our Country. And if we huddle together in a boat talking about deliverance, but lack the faith to commence its’ power from God in Christ our Lord, the King, then what was the point of the “huddle”? We first need to establish our faith! How does our individual influences’ impact the communities we live in, because if the influence isn’t wrought in faith then how do we expect to impact our house of representatives and senators that court our freedom? There are political powers beyond what the “eye” sees, and it’s time to place our God given Gift next to the “coin” of Caesar and make a statement.

Believers Lifeline

A brother in the flesh said to me, “I wish people would stop trying to save people, like you. It’s too late for that.”. That brother is amped to fight. It reminded me of what the Jews initial thought was of their Messiah — but the ‘fight’ expected was misperceived.


There is a fight, but it’s not against flesh and blood. Remember, Jesus was in every right to call on a legion of angels to fight, but He surrendered that right in obedience to His Father. The fight is against the character of evil experienced in the flesh of our bodies. Listen. I could continue to input gospel record in defense of what is written (here) — but it defeats the purpose if the reader is unwilling to believe for him or herself what the gospel is teaching. So, my question to many of my brothers and sisters in the flesh, like the one who thinks, “it’s too late”. Are you looking within your soul to meet the Spirit of your Father through Jesus the Messiah? Or. Are you looking elsewhere to meet Him.


A believer/s lifeline, is that God sacrificed His Only Son to have a relationship with them; resurrecting them to Himself, because our Father is not of this world. An unbeliever has a God that is knocking on the door of their heart because of the news an adopted child would receive — “I’m chosen?! This is my Dad?! my Mom!”. No different than a parent or parents that purchased custody of an adopted child or children, so too did God purchase custody of you, but with the blood of His Only Natural Born, Immanuel (Jesus), the boy of God’s Spirit Whom we sinners crucified. So, congratulations! It’s a Brother! Are you, so dull of hearing? So ready to fight that you’re incapable of experiencing that excitement? Which should nearly bring you to tears if not wailing while simultaneously jumping, even leaping with joy. We have become reconciled as children of God. And yet, He is still pursuing those who have not heard because of our inherited sin cursed natural parents of the flesh (Adam and Eve). That may sound harsh, but it’s a point, to the reason, we should obey this-time around. Don’t listen to the serpent — listen to the Son of Man / Spirit of God! So, do you still want to fight after hearing that good “news”? If so. Consider this. The skin that you live in now, is designed to adapt from the condition of it’s sin to learn the mysteries of God and make sense of believing. So, for any other reason than to investigate, learn and adapt to make sense of believing. You’re making yourself out to be a coward who is stuck in their lust (multiplied by two) or too proud, and stuck in their pride. And could one-day result in committing the only sin worthy of damnation.

“Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven. Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come. Matthew 12:31-32


The correct response of your desire to fight; is don’t fight for deliverance but deliver the fight to God; in honor of His glory and Who He is to you — not for yourself. It is “yo” Daddy who teaches you all things! And it may just so happen that He will bless you, when ready, to take on the Goliath of today; just as He did David in his day! LET’S DO THIS YOU “Salvational Engineers”! LETS GO!

Believers Practice

2017-12-13 00.14.29-4

Although we live in a veiled experience of our Father’s glory because of disobedience doesn’t mean to make a practice out of disobeying. Instead, through this experience, learn and acquire skills you can teach others and take interest in helping build others talents’ to achieve their goals and reach an abundance of success. Make a practice out of that — do you see the parallel here? (refer to home) Remember when the Lord instructed Moses to “Make a fiery serpent…” (Numbers 21:8)? Same thing here. You can “pick up” (pun intended) the “art” of someone else’s trash. Believe me, there is a lot of it! Which is really another way of saying go the extra mile to making disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19). I promise it will go well with you. And no, I am not your lord. Just another brother in the flesh, but also a member in Glory with those in Glory (glory to glory) . Understand that because we originally belonged to sins rightful place of punishment and death; needed a way out of that cursed path and place of destruction.


Jesus, veils the actual nature of His Father’s glory to live among us and with us. When Jesus was born of a seed incorruptible our seed of corruption crucified Him. So, obviously our sin nature and Jesus’s’ glory nature are not of the same household. Therefore, thankfully God’s loving kindness toward us offered a proposal, which was His Son in the flesh of our sin, Jesus. Whom again and again our sin nature desires to crucify. Which is the reason He is the true Husband of our faith — hence “proposal”.

I wish that you would bear with me in a little foolishness; but indeed you are bearing with me. 2 For I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy; for I betrothed you to one husband, so that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin. 3 But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. 4 For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully. (2 Corinthians 11:1-4)

Vain Believers?

Before we all approach the judgement seat of God together (Romans 14:10; 2 Corinthians 5:10) hoping to justify ourselves into Heaven. There is a “Standard” to consider; and it is important to investigate the way God designed it. So, in our Bibles (books testifying of God’s relationship with Mankind) we will find that our Living Creator God and Father of all created things (good and evil) descended into the world; Anointed in Jesus of Nazareth, (Immanuel –  Hebrew name meaning “God with us”~ Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23) to be born a baby boy from the virgin (Mary) of the Jews one Holy night; to then be called on as “Son of Man” (Messiah – the promised deliverer of the Jewish people) for salvation during His ministry in the flesh; being simultaneously equal with God as the Son of God in the power of the Holy Spirit on Earth; betrayed to fulfil His Father’s Word (Holy Scriptures) establishing the Only Way of reconciliation to God, for the souls of sinners; providing the way for the past, present, and future souls to follow suit by the way of His resurrection from the dead after 3 days — being the “firstborn” of the transformed (dead) now ascended on High to His rightful place as Heir to the throne for everyone to know their Creator God, as Father [not Judge, although a “Just” (Holy) Creator]. In all His humility and mercy wrought in Jesus, we now have the way and opportunity to distinguish Who this God is; although the Creator of my soul, also, the Father of my spirit by grace through faith in His Only Son…, Jesus the Nazarene (Christ). …Lord of lords and King of kings (Revelation 17:14).


God illustrates His Word by fully relating to our condition as sinners through the experience of His Son in the flesh (lust multiplied by two and pride ~1 John 2:16). So, we should not attempt to give the excuse of God’s’ inability to relate upon acquiring the knowledge and understanding of the Bible. We need to get something straight; plainly, God breached the void of infinite wisdom for our sake. Putting the death, we ought to have died… because we’re born of that genesis act of disobedience [seed of Adam], all are guilty [save Jesus]. Read it for yourself, we were warned!

Again, putting the death, we ought to have died upon His only Son, Jesus; born of God’s “Spirit” in the flesh, to reconcile in a way of relating to HIM as FATHER through the Holy Spirit of Jesus — true believers are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise that gives revelation to the truth about all things.

Between our world and the next there is a vast void of darkness preserved, don’t mistake it for the Light of His Kingdom. So what about Judas Iscariot (the one who betrayed Jesus), did he go to the outer darkness? Don’t waste your time pondering over forces you had nor have, any part in. Is anyone of us the “Creator” of our neighbor’s soul, let alone our own soul, to Give it Life that it would be Conscious? So to determine the verdict of one’s eternity…? — God is the One who implemented the Word of His Scripture; while we, simply abide in its’ truth and trust Him. Remember, “Father”, not Judge (although “Just”). Upon coming to know who the author is, of this blog, may one day result in witnessing him perish in outer darkness because of his believing in vain (Matthew 7:21-23). And that is where Evil will challenge our God given Gift of Salvation. And that is also why it is so important to know and understand the reason for God’s standard to those who’ve come to the knowledge of the truth (2 Peter 2:21). That is the purpose for evangelism. So if you feel annoyed toward a person of this faith and hope? I promise that is not the intent, but rather, a hunger or appetite yearning for you to experience this salvation and coming into glory, with Jesus. It is the desire of every believer to live with you, in the Everlasting! NOT, apart from you! And so, we give our life to the cause of Christ whilst awaiting His arrival. Please meet and get to know The Father of the believers’ Spirit, before He comes in all His Glory. Because I assure you, He’s coming. And that is a believer’s prayer and promise. So, I hope you’ll be ready.
