PBS

Last night I was watching “Secrets of Westminster” on PBS when I heard this phrase last night spoken by Ian Hamilton a Scott who was involved in the theft and ultimately the return of The Stone of Destiny to his homeland as he was describing the feel in Parliament about this incident. I thought it was AWESOME!

Is Fear an Absolute in Our Nature?

Is it in our nature to fear or not to fear? I was watching a movie scene where a person ran across a room while  machine guns bullets tore across it in sync. What makes a person believe they can outrun a deadly shower like that?

Then I thought with God, there is no fear just absolute confidence in success. But how does one obtain that level of confidence when by nature, humans know fear, are comfortable with it and expect Its companionship into the unknown?

But do we always have to expect it? Is fear an illusion, one of the many false conditionings taught by humans for humans that are absorbed into their subconscious? Is fear a part of our nature anymore after we are reborn with the nature of God’s living within us?

Like with any learned negativity, a process of unlearning is required. Can we reprogram a very prominent and specific characteristic that is embedded in every fiber of our being into a permanent hibernation? Even though fear can be conquered, the fact remains It is there to be conquered. How does one eliminate Its root so the process of conquering is eliminated rendering void every particle of fear itself?

Is it like with the sudden urge to vomit when you try everything to squash the urge, push it down in order to rise above the nausea and proceed onward obstructed? How to squash the urge?How to eliminate its entire concept?

When we are reborn every positive characteristic strength is available for utilization. Every form of weakness becomes defeatable. The question is how and can it be as simple as understanding weakness is no longer an option that is to be felt and pondered over?

I believe it is, when clothed in the full Armour of God.

Rethink; Laws of physics

The law of physics should not be labeled/defined, thought of as absolute. This is man’s attempt to keep the human mind in worldly bondage and tightly controlled out of fear for that which he can not explain and will in turn shame and bruise his own pride.

The fact that he thinks he can place rules on gravity and so forth would mean he is declaring himself creator of all things-for from nothing comes everything and everything is a creation including gravity. So if you are to take nothing and from it create; than gravity is a concept- like pictures in a painting-imagined, planned, created & instated. Therefor the creator defines the system and that system is comprised of or not of rules that need to or don’t need to make sense to the creators creations.

Don’t let your mind get bogged down by concepts of mere human thinking. There is soo much reality unseen, unheard and not understood-left never to be understood and received of by common man. If we aren’t smart enough to use even 1/4 of our brains we certainly aren’t smart enough to place restrictions on God and the universe.

If You Were God

Asking humans this question, if you were a god and your people were waiting for you, how would you make your appearance? The majority of answers would be, definitely not quietly. Some would no doubt have a reality crew set up and ready to capture the theatrics of fireworks and flaming letters fanning across the sky to announce that you have  arrived. There you’d be standing dressed and draped in brilliant regalia within a glistening chariot made from billions of dazzling gems and being pulled by a winged beast with a head of a lion and body of a dragon accompanied by a universe class band. Something like that.

How very opposite of our God. How very beautiful and intimately personal did Jesus come into the world for us! First of all the Creator of the Universe, of everything past, present and future came to the world burning with an incomprehensible love and compassion for us all. He came so that we may know Him and know that He desires a personal relationship with each of us. He came to set us free and to give all an even/steven chance of receiving His gift of eternal life ruling along with Him forever in His kingdom.

He arrived by way every human could relate to and understand, human birth and chose to do so in the most humble way. He became accessible to all who yearn to know and love Him. He came so that  all can know and love Him. The kind of life our King chose here on earth announces that everyone, know mater your circumstance could become a part of His family and that all it takes is a willingness to see truth, see through the insignificance of mans world a fabricated merry go round of doctrine comprised of;   depressing,  limiting,  self serving ,oppressing,              listless, mindless, heartless callous, useless mandated redundant routine type existence………  requiring, obtaining, doing, going, being, becoming, having, needing, planning, occupying, lusting, wanting,           gathering, consuming, using, exploiting and all willing to  kill themselves following one person after the next down the escalator designated  for mere men idolizing itemized lists, ideas, definitions and rules by which they delusion themselves into believing and declaring that this is life, this is what we are born and bred for and  that this wasting of  heart and soul is worth breathing for.

Side note-that ain’t being free.

But when you see through the cyclone of bull, see there under all the debris there to what has always and will always be, the magnificent simplicity and beauty of His Word(! ) illuminating our purpose our existence and the promise that He has given to us! The awesomeness of His power, glory, grace  and promises He makes available at the insurmountable cost of free. All that He requires is our trust, belief,  faith and love as we follow and live for Him.

Who will you serve? The men of this world at the cost that always is and always will be- everything? Can you breath without anxiety? Can you sleep without worry? Is your day meaningful..to anyone? Does your work come with an uncompromising love from  caring, compassionate, considerate boss’ and co-workers who provide friendship and guidance and who are available to you 24 hours a day? Are you a valued, respected detrimental part of the company an aspect whose refined gifts and talents help keeps it together?

What happens 5, 10,20 years after you retire? Will any of those years you gave  to that job mater? Would they even let you back in the door? Will new and future employees’ know about the work you did there?  Would your old boss or company still even exist?
How about in the nursing home, when you’re terminal, and can’t walk or care for yourself will those people or that job come to your side and keep you company?Will they write or call?

How about family? Do you think that being connected by blood means family? Why, because they’re the most positive, influential, loving, understanding, intellectually and emotionally nourishing supportive people and you can’t live without their protection and comfort? Because they are the ones who  put their arms around you and lift you up when you’re down or who hold you during the times you’ve made a mess of things? Is it because they’re the ones who’ve helped and will help guide your life? Have they raised you to be a strong, honest, selfless, resilient, virtuous person who can’t but help to positively affect people who are inspired by your genuine concern?

Who will be at your side when you die, your past or your future? Who will you give your life too? Who and what will you live for?
