Until we recognize where THE SOURCE of our life is coming from, and where it abides, we will continue to search for answers guided by our mind. This is why Jesus made it clear “Your ways are not my ways, nor your thoughts my thoughts.” His ways and thoughts were manifested to the earth from the unseen realm. His dependency was completely on the Father the source of His life. He proclaimed openly in Himself He could do nothing. In other words He understood self was helpless, and as far as He was concerned dead. At the age of twelve he made it clear, He was about His Father’s business.
The greatest force keeping us away from the truth of our identity is our mind. Thoughts are continually racing through our mind. Some good and some bad. Our minds leads us to believe, if we go to church on Sunday or join some religious group, we are serving God, and are Christians. The rest of the time is spent as slaves to our mind and ego. “If you have seen me you have seen the Father” Jesus stated. It is obvious His actions were in the perfect will of the Father, so much so they were one in purpose. This is how we are to walk. Not with just words. Our presentation to the world is to be Father’s will, not ours.
Understanding changes everything
When we admit some of our beliefs about God and Life are no longer working. When we acknowledge there are some things we do not understand about God and Life. The understanding which could change everything. We will find this understanding in THE STILLNESS OF HIS PRESENCE. Our mind wants to race from the past to the future, always busy. We are addicted to the commands of our mind. In fact most people today are slaves to their mind and ego. Matter of fact some of you are someplace else mentally right now! HAVE YOU EVER TRIED TO NOT THINK? Just come before the Father with no thought. In silence ignoring everything around you, close your eyes take no thought, listen to the silence.
Be a watchman don’t let a thought enter. This is your house; you and the Father abide here. Feel the peace and love as it embraces every portion of your body. You are one with all creation, one with the FATHER in the body, or out of the body, you are one with Him. Nothing can change you. Nothing can take your true identity from you. Will the time spent in this earth realm change the fact as to who you are? Is your experiences here good or bad going to change the Fathers love for you? Will it rob you of being one with Him? I think not. YOU ARE AT PEACE WHEN YOU ARE NOT TROUBLED BY ALL THOSE RAMBLING THOUGHTS. Be still and enjoy this present moment. Everything you have need of is here in this moment. You are complete in Christ now in this moment. Every chance you get during the day close your eyes and enjoy the presence, that is with you all the time. Before long, you will feel His love and presence as you go about you daily routine.
He is with you always
All living creatures are living in the now, however to each one the now has a different feel to it. Some are pondering on how they are going to meet the requirements they are facing in the now. I understand we can close our eyes and try and escape the problems by humming ourselves into a different state of mind or be silent and daydream all of our problems away. The fact remains the cause and effect doesn’t go away that easy. If you are in trouble with the law, you did something to cause yourself to be in that condition. Trying to escape from it by denying it is real is not effective. You may be free from the problem in this one moment, but you can be sure the effect of your action is going to catch up to you in the next few moments.
I can understand how confusion mounts when one tries to separate their mind, body, and spirit. It has the same effect as when you try to separate the creation from the creator, it just isn’t so. You have never been separated from your Father. Nor have you been separated from Christ or the Holy Spirit. How could you be when the very Kingdom of God is within you. You are Spirit Being (God man) The breath of God gave life to the soul. The essence of God was breathed into your soul. What ever you consider God to be, you are of the same essence. And according to the Scripture, “All things belong to you” How is this so? Because of the Godhead abiding within you. You are not separated from the rest of creation; you are a part of it. As a Spirit Being you are with Christ (Body) on the right hand of the Father, witnessing all the experiences your earthly journey afforded you. Your earth body is a tool used to learn the ways of the earth life. However your earth body is not your master. Your earth body only responds to what your mind dictates to it.
The mind or the heart?
Your mind operates through the ego and the five senses. However your heart operates through the Holy Spirit. So you choose which you are going to follow. THE MIND OR THE HEART. As long as your 5 senses control your thinking you will mind the things of the flesh. However when you yield to the voice of the Spirit which speaks to your heart, you will do as Jesus did and mind the things of the Father. His will, will be your will. As Jesus was sent by the Father and lead by the Spirit, so too are you sent by the Father and led by the Spirit. Jesus will go with you and IN YOU, He is your brother, and He will go with you to the end. Remember however Jesus stated, “I have finished the work you sent me to do.
IT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT ENLIGHTENS AND LEADS YOU INTO ALL TRUTH. WHICH IS THE CONTINUOUS FLOW OF THE WORD OF THE FATHER AS HE SPEAKS TO YOUR HEART. Jesus Christ was not sent to reconcile God to man, but to reconcile man back to God. So if we are reconciled back to something then it is obvious, we were there before. What is being reconciled back to God? Our awareness of who we are in Him. If you are not aware of something you are blind to its existence. Mankind has been blind to their identity. Unaware as to who they are. We are sent to push the button that will turn on the light of your understanding, that you might see you are already at the place you are trying so hard to get to. Why venture out to try and find God, when you are already in Him and He is in you. Why wait for an inheritance when you already have it. Why search for a Kingdom when you already have one? This is facing the now and this moment.
Hell on earth
Now you are a member of the body of Christ, now you are reconciled to God, now all things belong to you. Now you are complete in Christ. This is why the Father says about His creation “It is very good.” It comes down to the reality if you live after the mind of the flesh, you will reap the results of your actions. Which is hell on earth, and in your life. If on the other hand you are led by the Holy Spirit you will have the attributes of God manifested in your life. Love will flow from you to all creation. You will live in the oneness of all things connected together in the Father who is ALL IN ALL. He is the source of all life and sustains all life. HE IS and nothing exist without him. All existing things both in heaven and earth is by and through His control. He created all things both good and evil. He takes full responsibility for His creation. So be careful how you sum up situations or judge a person. What you do to them you are doing to the Father. What you try to cast out as a devil just may be a tool used to bring an understanding to someone. So listen intently. Speak sparingly. Love unconditionally.
Let’s consider our emotional body, (Flesh body) controlled by the carnal mind. Going from one situation to another experiencing numerous emotional feelings. Trying to analyze what to do and how to do it. Always searching and blaming others because of its discontentment. Looking always for a way of escape from the turmoil of the mind. Love is the answer, love will bring a unity to the world. This is the key to bring all mankind back to understanding their true identity. Love must be manifested in and through us.
It really is all about Love
I pray the love of the Father touches each heart and brings the nations together in harmony. Hate, anger, jealousies, and fear are the tools of the mind and ego. The eyes of our understanding will not be spiritually enlightened by our works, or our religiosity.
