As I have walked among you for close to 60 years I have witnessed what we call life. Now I am not a religious person, but Jesus and I think a lot alike, we would have been friends. When I first became aware of this, it kinda threw me for a loop. Why am I feeling this way. What am I supposed to do now? That was 27 years ago, 1979.
I am not asking you to agree with what is about to follow. You are free to arrive at you own conclusions. I know those opinions will vary, dependent on your knowledge, faith, culture, status, wealth, fears, beliefs and power.
It concerns heaven, hell, hate, love, life, death, religion, survival, right, wrong, good, evil, happiness, contentment, brotherhood, the past, the future and eternity.
Now I am about to make a statement as to the event that occurred in my life 27 years ago and those of you who do not believe it because it is not exactly as you were taught, please stay with me. It was the rapture of God s presence in my mind. It weakened my knees, tears began to flood my cheeks as I experience what can only be described as a cleansing of my soul. Some of faith will describe this as being born again, the only problem with that is I have never thought I was dead or lost. Confused, absolutely. I have always known God was in my life. I didn t understand how and for what purpose, I knew there would be reason that would be known to me. Although I did experience behavior, thoughts and desires I just knew would make Him angry, or so I had been told, and my constant prayer was for Him never to give up on me. Little did I know he was guiding my path and protecting me every step of the way allowing me to share the wisdom of my journey with you.
This Truth for all mankind: GOD IS NOT ABOUT RELIGION, HE IS ABOUT LIFE. It is time to go from faith to knowing. Freewill never existed. Yet we can continue to survive on our own, but it was never meant to be that way. Mankind cannot truly live without His guiding hand. I know His loving touch and it is with His help I bring His truth to you. The time has come. Either we continue to create a Hell, or begin to build a Heaven. The choice is up to us, all of us. THE TRUTH IS NOT ABOUT CURING MAN S ILL S BUT TO ELIMINATE THAT WHICH IS CAUSING HIS ILLNESS.
Evil and all of it s manifestations exists in the absence of God. In our imagination we have conjured a portrait of evil that satisfies and excuses all of the ills that plague mankind, relieving us of any culpability, and so it has been since our grand debut on the scene. Evil is nothing more than the extent man will go to, to survive. We haven t begun to live yet, we have been too busy surviving.
Our creation is immaculately perfect therefore instilling in us the notion of free will. It was our destiny to experience this thing we call life on our own to determine for ourselves the wisdom of our being and what is right and what is wrong. We cannot be commanded, forced, or manipulated. As it should be, for a perfect creation. Much of our recorded history was controlled by human, mortal, self-proclaimed Gods who slaughtered heros who heralded the truth..Those ancient philosophies were tainted truths in which we built our most powerful civilizations, which did of course, fall. Within our greatest truths are minuscule cancers creating a malignancy that enables evil to thrive. .
Evil flourishes on the ills of man, created by man to control man. Our ancient sages lived in fear of their very lives if their writings, in the slightest way, lessened the control of the politico of the time. Just as this wisdom I will relate to you puts my life in jeopardy for it will not only lessen the control, it will eliminate it all together. To eliminate evil, you must eliminate it s food supply. Stop feeding it, it will cease to exist.
The truth is life is an entitlement for mankind. We are here for a reason and our existence was never meant to have a cost to it. PERIOD. The resources the Earth provides are more than sufficient to insure every human being the quality of life he needs to live, not just survive, as long as rarity is not part of the equation Any value placed on any object, either natural or created, creates a big problem, especially if that natural resource is rare and the illusion of happiness is associated with it. Such as gold. Ask a man dying of thirst what he needs, gold or a drink of water. The inequity of objective value creates the iniquity that feeds evil. There is nothing on the face of the earth more valuable than life itself and it is entitled to all. For in the mind of the least of us is that pure knowledge needed to make it all work. We are a part of a perfect, harmonious universe and there are no short cuts. We all have something to contribute to that perfection and it is up to us to create that environment to allow each and every contribution to emerge as it is meant to. For this to happen a trust and respect for all mankind must take place and objective value cannot be a part of that process. Objects are to be used not coveted as they will be the rewards of those contributions based on the value of that contribution as it relates to the enhancement of all. No one will do without. Opulence will cease to exist along with it s temptations.
Each and every man has gifts that he has acquired throughout his existence that he will gladly offer as long as it does not risk the life he is entitled to. Even as it applies to human labor as long as he justly rewarded for that physical labor his able body is capable of. You will be amazed at how little man needs to be truly happy. When you start holding his very existence in the balance, he is force to survive and will stop at nothing to insure that survival, even violence. So we created laws to stem and curtail that violence allowing the inequity to continue to exist.
The battle of haves and the have nots has always existed and will always exist as long as laws protect and excuse that inequity created by the value we place on those rarities that should have no value. It is the amassing of it and the lure of it that is root of all the evil that plagues our existence.
As we view our existence finite, we are forced to survive gathering as much as we can before die. It is that very effort that takes life from us.
The consequence of this inequity is all around us as we comfortably proclaim axioms such as God helps those who help themselves and only the strong survive . It was our destiny in order to appreciate the perfection of life, we had to find out for ourselves our inability to deal with the perfection of our being on our own. You see, God is not about religion; He is the missing link to our life.
We have always had choices. To give or to take; to share or to hoard; to have faith or to fear and as a result of our greed to survive, we have created our reality, Hell on Earth. It wasn t meant to be that way, but that is what it is becoming. We haven t begun to live yet.
We have been forgiven for those compromises we have been forced to commit to ensure our survival. Now as you learn the truth it will be, as my friend Bill Allin, say s, time to TURN IT AROUND. It is time to go in another direction. Unless we are content with:
WASTE, POVERTY, ILLNESS, CANCER, HEART DISEASE, STRIFE, HUNGER, IMMORALITY, GREED, DRUG ABUSE, PROSTITUTION, PORNOGRAPHY, CHILD ABUSE, AIDS, DIVORCE, WAR, ENVY, SLOTH, VANITY, WRATH, MURDER, RAPE, THEFT, INSANITY, HOMELESSNESS, DESPAIR, GLUTTONY, CHILDREN BE RAISED IN WAREHOUSES, IDOL WORSHIP, DECEIT, CORRUPTION, ABORTION, DISEASE, WORRY, STRESS, SUICIDE, EXTORTION, MENTAL DISCRIMINATION, RACISM, BIGOTRY, RELIGIOUS ZEALOTRY, RELIGIOUS CONDESCENSION, STATUS, EGO, CONTROL, OPPRESSION, NUCLEAR WEAPONS, NUCLEAR DESTRUCTION, ETC, ETC, ETC and a MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR DRUG EMPIRE DISPENSING LITTLE PILLS TO HELP US COPE WITH WHAT WE CALL LIFE, AND AN EVEN BIGGER ILLEGAL DRUG EMPIRE SELLING THE SAME THING.
Knowledge is good thing; the usage of that knowledge is what truly matters. The boundaries that separate us will come tumbling down once we start to respect the value of our fellow human being and what he has to offer to the whole of humanity. You see that s what life all about.
The pure knowledge of God lies in the minds of our young. We don t have a problem in believing our eternity to be in heaven where the streets are paved with gold, as we associate that we so covet as being part of that utopian existence. My dear beautiful people, it is not heaven where the streets are paved with gold. Heaven will be of our making. It is our reason for being. We will all share in that beautiful voyage. Our young are our future. They are us. What we sow, we will surely reap. We are a global family and God sits at the head of the table. It s time we ask him to join us. Our children are a continuation of that eternal life of which we are all a part.
The world they live in prepares our way. We just need a little help.
It has been necessary to record all that constitutes human knowledge and that is our education. In short, it is the blind leading the blind. Finding the truth in voluminous tomes of man s history is equivalent to looking for a particular grain of sand in the oceans of the world. That knowledge is not about living, it is about surviving. Getting complicated, isn t it. As we encumber our young with this malignant knowledge it taints the purity of those young minds as we entrap them to believe that their effort will be amply compensated with an abundant life as they discover more ways to extend man s survival as he continues to balance his economic house of cards that is destined to fall.
The body is a perfect creation and when the mind is at peace it will function as it was meant to be. As long as the mind is preoccupied with worry, stress and fear, the body breaks down and the brain immediately begins to heal that damage using resources intended for other functions. In doing so it sacrifices it s power and performance as it treats the ailment. The human body will function perfectly as long as the brain functions perfectly , without effort. The mind under stress prevents that perfect operation. When the mind is stressed the body begins to break down and that genius of the brain is called on to heal that imperfection. It is programmed to survive, and when it is called upon to heal it sacrifices some of it s power and it begins to breakdown. So goes the brain, so goes the body causing the body to die. Enter medicine. In the hubris of our youth, we thought we could figure out why a perfect body could possibly die. The ease in the operation of the mind lessens the strain on the brain and the body works just fine. It is the dis-ease of the mind, not the body, we must fix.
This simple truth was not to be understood. Of course death seems so finite it was in our perfection to seek to understand why we die. Death and perfection just didn t go hand in hand. Enter science as we struggled to understand everything to prolong our existence. The rest is history. Shakespeare s to be or not to be, that is the question illustrates our compulsion to answer that question. Of course it is imperative to be thinking it was our destiny to develop cures that would prolong our existence. Take a look around, how we doing? (See above) In short, science is struggling to fix something that isn t broken.
Now we know why we die; let s learn how we can live. As we delve into curing the problems of the present we search the malignant past, further descending into the hell we are creating. And that my beautiful people is madness. The heaven you seek is beneath your feet. Always has been. Living is an entitlement for all and should have no cost. PERIOD. There may be horizons in store for man well beyond our capacity to even visualize, but we have to get it right on Earth, first. Mankind has an eternity to grow and the knowledge of the universe will be known as we a merit that understanding and use it for that for which it was intended. Any premature access to that which we don t understand opens pandora s box.
PEACE OF MIND is the reward of eliminating inequity. That can only be brought about as we stop charging a price for life, allowing the mind to be at peace providing God s entrance into our mind. We must provide that environment that will allow each and every human being the freedom to develop and use that knowledge he has acquired for the enhancement of all. What should not be taught; cannot be learned unless man s survival is in the balance. Attention deficit syndrome is nothing more than trying to teach your young that they do not need to know. You are forcing these gifted young people to learn malignant information that dilutes that pure knowledge exponentially hastening the descent of us all.
Those in power who bask in the adoration of their status must abide by this truth and offer all at their means to make it happen. Life has nothing to do with how much wealth, how smart you are, what race you are, or what you faith may be. It is the wisdom of the three races combined that will lead us to the future of mankind. That can only be done once respect, dignity and trust are established for all. We must create incentives based on that which is not rare but controlled by those dedicated this truth that will allow the least among us the life they are entitled to.
Contrary to ingrained wisdom, God does not command man to serve Him. That was man s idea as he related his own desires to be those of God. It is God who wishes to serve us. That is the true nature of His undying love for us. So to protect his own self proclaimed deity, man instilled the greatest untruth: THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. To insinuate this was intentionally done would indicate a maliciousness that could only be attributed to pure evil. Which brings me to the next chapter of our existence; RELIGION. Below was all I needed to know.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
Ephesians 2: 8& 9
For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; Not of works, lest any man should boast.
It is not intended for me to adhere to any particular religion. The above two truths will apply to all religions yet I found them in the Bible. One is in the old testament, one in the new. All of the religions are right and they are all wrong in the degree they were written by man and subject to man s interpretation of what he understands God to be. Even as a young child, I never could hold with man having that kind of intelligence. To understand God? I don t think so. To believe He exists, you bet; but to understand Him is beyond the realm of hubris. To believe in Him is what faith is all about; to know Him is what the rapture is all about. The rapture is what life is all about.
All of the ills that plagues us will begin to disappear once we stop putting a price on life. A popular phrase is ...don t worry, it could be worse.. as we sink into the abyss of hell finding solace in a lesser degree of worse . Such as the parable of the man that whined about having no shoes , until he met a man who had no feet. Such is the lot in which we find ourselves. To be grateful for our lot in what we call life, thanking God for that we do have. It is the absence of God that created this scenario and His compassion that allows us to survive in that misery. Ever try to give someone advice that didn t as for it?
Went in one ear and out the other, didn t it. Such is man s dilemma as He efforts to understand what He is not meant to understand. We must adhere to this truth and come to the absolute realization that we cannot survive alone and ask for His help. Peace of mind is His gateway. Faith has allowed us to exist amid evil and now it is time to eliminate it and all it s manifestations once and for all time.
I do not profess to have all the answers. No one individual does. This truth provides the FIRST step toward enjoying life as it was meant to be. Collectively we will arrive at those answers as God directs each and every one of our paths.
May God Be With You,
This is not a prayer, it is the way it was meant to be.
Who is "email"?
Solomon, the wisest man to ever live, wrote:Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones. (Proverbs 3:6-8)
Before you answer based on your own framework, please allow me to explain from where I am coming in a straightforward manner:Paul, an inspired apostle, wrote:For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent." Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. ... For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. (I Corinthians 1:18-29)
No matter how convinced you feel, your subjective feeling is no evidence for me. Unless your message accords with the tested, proven, and objective Word of God, then it is to be rejected. I hope that this reaction does not offend you. I am willing and eager to test your words against the standard, because it is my obligation:Paul wrote:But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. (Galatians 1:6-7)
John, an apostle of Jesus Christ, wrote:Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (I John 4:1)
Can you perform miracles? Have you fulfilled prophecies? Have proven prophets attested to your validity? Jesus provided this evidence:Paul wrote:Test all things; hold fast what is good. (I Thessalonians 5:21)
If Jesus was not above providing evidence beyond His own testimony, should I not expect some evidence from you? Should you not expect more evidence for yourself? I think neither you nor I are above the standard that Jesus established, are we?John, recording the words of Jesus, wrote:"If I bear witness of Myself, My witness is not true. There is another who bears witness of Me, and I know that the witness which He witnesses of Me is true. You have sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth. Yet I do not receive testimony from man, but I say these things that you may be saved. He was the burning and shining lamp, and you were willing for a time to rejoice in his light. But I have a greater witness than John's; for the works which the Father has given Me to finish -- the very works that I do -- bear witness of Me, that the Father has sent Me. And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form. But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe. You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life." (John 5:31-40)
Much more could be said about rejecting the clear teaching of proven Scripture in favor of one's personal feelings or wisdom. Please see the following forum threads, where similar concerns have been raised:
If you do not believe the Bible, I can understand and work with that. If that is the case, we should first discuss the inspiration, confirmation, and preservation of the Bible. In parallel, we could discuss the inspiration, confirmation, and infallibility of you. This would provide us an excellent opportunity for comparing and contrasting two possible and disputed mediums for God's communication to you and me.
I pray you understand my skepticism, and I hope that you will earnestly consider and analyze my message, just as I have taken time to earnestly consider your speech. Please do not dismiss me out of hand, just as I did not dismiss you!
May God help us to have open eyes and a sincere love of truth
