tapping into the mind of God
There exists a complete record of the human race. It contains all the knowledge, thoughts, feelings, and history of humanity. It also contains our instincts, innate characteristics, and all of our unconscious knowledge. As you can imagine, the pages needed to contain all this information must be immense. Yes, it would be. But these pages can not be accessed in the bindings of a library. Nor can it be found on the Internet; we do not have enough metal and silicon to create the devices necessary to hold all that information. So, how do we access it?
There are a few ways, and they have been used for thousands of years. Prayer, meditation, yoga, and other practices which focus the mind and calm the body. Complete and quiet mind focus and body harmony are required to fully access the archives. Did Jesus have access to this? Absolutely! God is the author of all knowledge; only He knows and remembers all. His memory is infinite, as He takes account of every detail that we miss. And in your heart, if you truly desire to have access to the complete archives of consciousness, humble yourself to the One who knows all, and He will give you the knowledge your heart desires. Humility is the first step. If you wish to know something that you do not know, you must first understand what you do not know. If you wish to know everything, you must come to the final understanding that you know nothing. Only a humble heart can hear and understand the voice of God.
Jesus teaches us that eternal life is to know God and His Son (Jesus). If you know what God promises, and you believe Him, you will live forever. Even though the body dies, and the soul sleeps upon death, we will one day arise to meet our Savior and his Father. And we will rejoice. Eternal life is perfect, and no one can truly imagine what that means. Perfection can have many different connotations when people speak of the afterlife, but we know that God is perfect, so anything that He has in store for us will also be perfect. Take a moment to emotionally comprehend what Jesus voluntarily went through in order to have eternal life. Hell on Earth.
Jesus tapped into humanity’s collective consciousness, and, as he was dying on the cross, he asked God to forgive his accusers and his executioners. When you have that kind of humility toward God and the things that He loves, you get to be king of God’s people in the afterlife. We can never be kings or queens in the afterlife, but loving in perfect communion with God is the ultimate reward.
Humble your heart, and see what God does for you. Be beacons of God’s love to those who need to know Him, not expecting anything in return but your Father’s perfect love. His promises are true, because His love is perfect.
how did He do it?
In a previous post, I explained how God planted His Universe seed and how it sprouted, grew, and evolved into the Universe as we know it, today. Of course, I am using the seed as a metaphor for what actually happened, because no one knows exactly how God did it. Some pretty smart people have some great ideas, with a lot of evidence to back up their claims. What they have done is taken a very hard, critical look at the mysteries of the Universe and its various components, and came up with explanations that are best supported by the evidence – what makes the most sense. One thing we must respect about true science is the steadfast pursuit of truth, even when it means admitting when something is unknown or even incorrect. Always be wary of scientific claims until you have convincing evidence; if there is jut not enough evidence to convince you, then ask God, “Is their claim reasonable?” Then, be quiet, and allow Him to speak to you, so you will be able to clearly hear His message.
JUST DO IT!
If you could take God and shrink Him down into the size of a coin and carry Him around in your pocket, how often would you talk to Him? Would you only take Him out when you needed Him? Would you show Him off to others? Would you hide Him away, so that no one could take Him from you? Would you never tell anyone about Him, so He would be all yours?
Now, imagine that God walks beside you, every day, all day, and you have the opportunity to talk to Him anytime you wish. He is your best friend, offering you help and advice when you need Him. He knows the best choices for you to make before they are even presented before you, and He wants you to journey down the path that will lead to peace and contentment. God is our Father, and He does not want His children to suffer. He is always here when we need Him, but if we do not know how to approach Him, how will we ever be able to walk with Him?
You do not have to imagine, because God is real and He is with you. God is so amazing that He has the ability to be anywhere and everywhere in His Creation at any time. God is like the ocean, and you are a vessel in his midst. You have the ability to communicate with and receive understanding from Him. He has laid the foundation for a relationship with you. And, like all of His children, you must make a choice whether or not to respond to His offer of love, peace, hope, and eternal life, as those are the benefits of a personal relationship with God.
Do you want that? to live life with hope, peace, and contentment, no matter how wretched and horrible your circumstances are, until the day you die? He is holding out His hand, waiting, patiently, like the best Father, waiting for you to take hold. Take His hand and speak to Him. Tell Him everything that races around in your mind. DO NOT BE ASHAMED! God knows you, already, and He still loves you to the fullest. Do not feel foolish “talking to the air” God created the air; He IS the air. Accept what God has for you.
Prayer is not meant to be at an apportioned time on the appointed day. We can pray at the appointed times, but when the observance of the ritual becomes the focus of the worship, then we are not communing with God; we are satisfying our human desire to do for God, when God wants us to be for Him. The more you live your life for God, the more you will do for Him, not the other way around. And in order to be for God, you must know Him, and for you know Him, you must pray.
How did Jesus pray? Unceasingly! He was (and is) always in communion with God. Nothing that Jesus said or did was from his own desires, but he was in full obedience to the Father that sent him to us. And we should live like that, too. Pray unceasingly and in full communion with God. For, what other greatness can a person achieve in this lifetime that will give them eternal life?
“My Dear Heavenly Father,
I thank you for the wonderful blessings you have given me. I thank you for life, and for Your breath that sustains me. You are the most magnificent and the most beautiful, and I love you with my whole heart. Guide me, Father. Make my path straight and fast to You. Let me not suffer in this life, unless it glorifies You. I ask this in Your most holy Son’s name.”
Your thoughts, comments, and questions are greatly welcome!
Is there something about Yahweh that you have never quite understood?
Is there one of Yeshua’s teachings that confuse you?
Do you have problems in your own life, and you want to know how Yeshua would solve them?
Are you in trouble and need help?
MESSAGE ME, and I will do what I can. There are many possibilities for Yahweh to work in your life, and I can help you find HIM and help you find the path HE wants you to be on. If I can’t do something to help, we can work together and with Yahweh’s help, we will find someone to help you. Yahweh loves us, and HE wants to help you get through what troubles you, no matter how great or small.
I have SEEN Yahweh wok in the lives of those who love HIM. I am a living example of HIS power to change people’s lives, and I wan to freely share that with you. Yeshua was the ULTIMATE example of how loving and faithful Yahweh is to those who love HIM. And if we love Yahweh like Yeshua loved HIM, we will also be resurrected into eternal life! AMEN!
When Yahweh created you, He connected to you by way of His love, and it is the most free and gentle tether, and only He can sever it, and He will only sever it if you desire that He do so. Your heart will determine what Yahweh will do with your relationship with Him. And what is in your heart is what comes out of your mouth, just as is what is in your mind is what you do with your body. If you judge yourself against the standard that Yahweh gave us when he sent Yeshua to us, then you will know who you re in relation to who you should be in the eyes of Yahweh.
Those of you who can help, please do. One dollar, two dollars, a loaf of bread, a helping hand, you must act to bring Yahweh’s Kingdom on Earth.
if you will listen, He will speak
How do you have a relationship with anything? You establish contact and grow the attachment bond. God has already established contact, now it is up to you to reciprocate.
How can you know for sure He exists? Talk to Him and see what happens. I can’t give you the secret incantation, nor are there spells, incense, or a special recipe to summon God; there is none.
Jesus taught us how to pray. Go into your room (anywhere to be in private and free from distraction), and talk to Him. You can say the Lord’s Prayer until you are comfortable speaking to Him fully from your heart.
Matthew 6:9-13 9 “Pray, then, in this way:
‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 10 ‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. 11 ‘Give us this day our daily bread. 12 ‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 ‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’
Fill your heart with love, and before every thought, word, and action, ask yourself, “Is this coming from a place of love?”
Walk in love and talk to God. This is how I know. The more I do this, the more I understand life. Like I said, there is no special recipe. It takes time and effort on your part, because God is always ready to meet you where you need to be met.
let’s be reasonable
If we make the claim that the Bible is inerrant, we invite people to prove us otherwise, and so we create lifetime skeptics that can not move past our alleged Biblical inerrancy to see the message of love and hope contained within its pages.
From time to time, I participate in lively debates with people who label themselves as atheist or agnostic. Although both sides bring up great points, invariably, one side makes known its desire for “proof” of the other side’s claim. Because I am not so closed-minded as to think there is not evidence for God’s non-existence, I can concede that there is no definitive “proof” of God’s existence (for us, at this time and point in history – in Jesus time, I would surmise that those who knew Jesus could not deny God’s existence). But what we do have are mountains upon mountains of evidence.
