The energy of wanting is very different from the energy of waiting. The energy of wanting is negative and lacks power, whereas the energy of waiting is peaceful and positive, provided we are waiting for the Lord and for his wisdom and guidance. Know that you lack nothing, and you will be empowered in your waiting. Know that you have everything you need, and you will be at peace.
When you look into the ether at someone in the spiritual realm, you can see one of several things. You might see all black, which indicates that you are looking at someone who is a demonic spirit. You might see a vague shimmer that is almost entirely black, which indicates that you are looking at a person's spirit through the spirit realm. You also might see a fully lighted solar plexus in the middle of the chest, or a body that is ablaze with light, which indicates the presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit of God.
Virtually everyone can see into the spiritual realm if they look carefully with their mind's eye. Sadly, sometimes when you see the vague shimmer of the spirit, if you turn your focus to the area of the heart, you will see total blackness. A black heart indicates that a person has sold their soul to Satan, and he in turn has taken the spirit from their heart. If the spirit of an organ is missing, nothing is seen in the spirit realm where the organ is located. When someone commits their lives to worshipping Satan, even if he gives them various vitamins and supplements that cause their cells to glow like a glow worm, the area where the heart is located will remain black and empty.
It seems that it was just a few short years ago when we began to hear of military drones and drone strikes. In fact, science fiction titles sometimes reference drones and indicate that drones existed as early as the 1960's, and perhaps earlier. Now, corporations purchase drones for various reasons, and even toy stores sell drones with various degrees of capabilities, such as taking aerial photographs, videotaping movements, and recording conversations.
The photos we see of drones are generally the size of a small, medium or large toy airplane that is controlled remotely in a manner similar to toy airplanes. In fact, drones can be almost invisible, and drones the size of flies and insects with inherent photographic and recording capabilities are in common use. It is one thing for a corporation to manufacture drones under a military contract for military purposes. It is quite another thing for that company to leverage its knowledge and research by beginning to manufacture drones for use by corporations and individuals in the private sector, without an in depth consideration of the broader national and global implications.
There are numerous considerations that must be analyzed prior to advanced military technologies being introduced into the public sphere, not the least of which is the impact on privacy, security and individual rights. Regulation, including technology regulation, is a necessary condition of coexistence because evil becomes rampant whenever the power balance becomes skewed. That drone technology has been unsuspectingly unleashed into the public domain is alarming. More significantly, drones in the public domain skew the power balance in a fearsome and appalling manner.
The Scriptures command us to "be perfect" as our heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48). The idea of seeking to attain to God's level of perfection has caused many to lose faith, lose hope, and decide that living in accord with biblical principles is an impossible undertaking that God could never have intended. But, as I stated in a recent Blog titled Purpose And Principle (http://www.RebekahIsaac.net/Blog/Purpose-And-Principle) perfect alignment with consciousness is possible only with the help of God's intermediary, the Holy Spirit of God. Without the indwelling Holy Spirit, any attempt at seeking perfection, or at times, seeking even minor change, can appear to be impossible.
A recent Scientific American blog post dated October 24, 2016 was titled, We Champion Racial, Gender and Cultural Diversity--Why Not Viewpoint Diversity? See post at bit.ly/2dDtvY8 Some in our society don't believe that viewpoint diversity is critical and essential to our well-being because they view diversity as an escape from conservatism. They believe that we already know the conservative view, it is anathema to a peaceable existence, and we need not hear it repeated. Instead, they champion the views that are ideologically opposite, and ignore the fact that these become the only views to which we are exposed. It is similar to being stuck on one end of a seesaw (teeterboard), motionless because of the lack of weight and balance on the other end.
The concept of diversity is one that has been bandied about as an ideal, but in fact, it is an essential component of any just society. Diversity ensures that every member of the society feels valued and engaged as part of the one body of humanity. To disengage or ostracize anyone is equivalent to removing an essential component of the body. One feels the pain of disengagement, and feels less than whole and healthy when a body part is removed. The memory of the excised part never goes away. The same is true when we spiritually disengage a group or a member of the body of humanity. We feel the loss in perpetuity on a spiritual and psychological level, and we can never be the same as when we are whole.
The pure, the bright, the beautiful that stirred our hearts in youth, the impulses to wordless prayer, the streams of love and truth, the longing after something lost, the spirit's longing cry, the striving after better hopes, these things can never die. The timid hand stretched forth to aid a brother in his need, a kindly word in grief's dark hour that proves a friend indeed, the plea for mercy softly breathed, when justice threatens high, the sorrow of a contrite heart, these things shall never die. Let nothing pass, for every hand must find some work to do. Lose not a chance to waken love, be firm and just and true. So shall a light that cannot fade beam on thee from on high, and angel voices say to thee: "These things shall never die."
By Charles Dickens
When we come to the end of a season, it is appropriate to take inventory or to take stock of what we have and what we need. Today is a day on which we should take stock. We should evaluate all of our options for fixing our world, the likelihood of success for each option, and the likelihood that we simply would continue down the same path, gathering a disastrous momentum. When all has been said and done, we will have arrived at a point of no return if we fail to take stock. It will be a place that will not be of our doing or of our liking.
Some perfumes are pleasant and others are extremely unpleasant. When God gives you a perfume, you can be certain that you will find it to be pleasant. When humans create perfumes, the result is often questionable. Some will find it to be pleasant and others will find it to be extremely unpleasant. But even when it appears to be pleasant, beware because at any moment it can be transformed into being extremely unpleasant. Perfumes today can be spiritually manipulated and made to take on a different persona. So, if you are opposed to Satan, you would be wise to avoid all heavily perfumed products, whether or not they are meant to be worn.
Waking up to wrangling and confusion is not the most pleasant experience. Most of us would prefer to wake up to the chirping of birds. There are times, however, when being awake is so critical to our well-being, that the important thing is that we are awake, regardless of the circumstances. The times are such that it is mandatory that every soul be wide awake. No longer can we sleep through life spiritually. We must become aware of who we are, where we came from and where we are going. We must know the purpose for our existence, and we must be committed to fulfilling our mission and purpose despite all odds.
Our world is in a state of confusion, and the wrangling between nations and between different factions has become deafening. We are tempted to tune out everything and everyone and look in another direction. But despite the circumstances, our only hope for survival is in being spiritually awake. When we are spiritually awake we can recognize that the problems in our global community are spiritual, and therefore the solutions must also be spiritual.
When the only hope for survival is spiritual, we know that we must turn to God because he is the only source of spiritual life and wisdom. Only he can instruct us on how to fight a spiritual war. When the times are such that we must be awake spiritually, we know that it is time to become one with God. We also know that we need his indwelling Holy Spirit.
Enmity and animosity are not circumstances that are welcomed in the average social circle. Most people prefer peace, love, and joy. However, when it comes to our relationship with Satan, the only qualities that should exist are enmity and animosity. We should not have a working, talking relationship with Satan. We should express to him a desire to never ever hear his voice. Hearing his voice means that we are on the verge of being hoodwinked. Hearing his voice means that we are on the verge of being cajoled into doing something that ultimately will have disastrous consequences. We should decide that the only voice we wish to hear is the voice of El Elohim, the God of Creation and of the Holy Spirit of God.
In business, it is courteous to return phone calls within 24 hours, to respond to letters and emails, and to say "thank you" when necessary. The ether (the spirit realm) also has a protocol. You should handle ether communications as if you were talking to God. If you asked God to do something, such as help you find employment, he would not expect you to be lying about the need for employment. If you told him you were ill and needed healing, he also would not expect you to be lying. The Spirit of God relies on the veracity of our ether communications and similarly, the spirit of our fellow human beings also should be able to rely on our ether communications.
Many people view the ether as a pool of fairy tales so that whatever they wish existed, or whatever they would like to pretend exists, they speak it through the ether. Speaking falsehoods through the ether has a corrosive effect on the body similar to speaking falsehoods in person or in regular communication. More importantly, when you speak deception through the ether, you directly affect the spirit and cause much more destruction in the physical realm that when the deceptions emanate from the physical realm.
There will come a time when, for security reasons, business activities will be conducted primarily through the ether. We will need to apply the same business protocol to those communications in order to be able to function efficiently. Perhaps we should begin today to honor our ether communications so that we will be in survival mode when the time comes that we must switch from AT&T wireless to the ether.
Blinking is an automatic activity that takes virtually no effort to accomplish. It begins in the brain when the eyes indicate that they need moisture. A blink coats the eye with water and keeps it lubricated. There are many other things that we do automatically, such as chewing when food is in the mouth, and sneezing when we breathe in an irritant. Worship is not something that should be done with our brain in automatic. Worship is a prayerful, deliberative experience such that when we say the "Our Father" we should mean the words, and when we pray the prayer of confession we should be thinking of all the sins we committed for which we need God's forgiveness. When worship becomes prayerful, thoughtful, and deliberate, we will find that manifestation of the things for which we pray will also become automatic.
Having an anchor is extremely important if you are in a boat and traveling by water. An anchor ensures that you don't drift into dangerous waters. Disciples of Jesus are water voyagers. They have bodies that consist of at least 70% water. As their degree of righteousness increases, the water content of their bodies also increases. This is because the cells of the body become cleaner as you grow in righteousness, and they are better able to absorb and hold water. Thus, the more righteous a person becomes, the healthier they are and the younger they look.
When you anchor your faith, you essentially ensure that you do not engage in practices that either flood your system with too much water, or cause a drastic drop in water levels. "Biting" into someone with the use of harsh words causes a dramatic drop in water levels in the body. When water levels in the body drop dramatically, spiritual growth suddenly halts until the person becomes more calm. The soul and the spirit both rely on water in order to communicate with the brain, and in the absence of such communication, the conscience becomes seared. Conversely, a lack of emotional response to pain and suffering floods our system with too much water. A body that is water-logged is a magnet for demonic spirits, rulers, and principalities that are some of the precursors to illness and disease. Anchoring your faith is an easy decision. Drop an anchor now by deciding to live peaceably and with conscience.
When we say "Shalom" we should mean "God be with you" and we should mean it.
If you have ever visited the Caribbean, you know that watching the sun rise in the morning or watching it set in the evening is a favorite pastime for the residents of Caribbean islands. They can tell the time of day by the length and location of their shadow. They know when a storm is about to begin by watching the length of the sun's rays. They also know when their harvest should be reaped based on the intensity of the sun.
In New Zealand, they have an affinity for the moon. They spend inordinate amounts of time watching the moon, mapping out the seasons based on the moon's characteristics, and determining weather patterns. Australians, however, love to stargaze. Sydney, Australia is well known for its love of the stars. Their observatories dot the city's landscape and attest to their affinity for the stars.
I suspect that in heaven, they also love the stars. Knowing that the stars are people in the universe who reflect the sun's light (Genesis 37:9-10), they watch as one star suddenly begins to twinkle and they know that the person is happy. They witness the sudden brilliance of a previously dim star and they know that the person experienced major repentance on a significant level. They see the distance the stars travel in the spirit realm and they know that the person is committed to growth and change. They also see when a star that seems too young to self-destruct suddenly explodes, and they know that the person has committed blasphemy, an unforgivable sin.
When an earthly star reaches a high level of purity, it no longer has a strong connection to earth and begins to turn its powers on itself. It sees itself as above the earth and must re-engage with the earth in order to remain grounded. It re-engages by taking on earthly tasks and channeling its powers into the completion of those tasks.
When a star reaches the brilliance of a sun, it no longer can interact closely with stars because it enables them to achieve a high state of brilliance, without the necessary learning process. Thus, the sun must retreat in order to enable the stars to develop their own brand of brilliance. When the stars reach their height of brilliance, the sun once again can begin to interact with them.
The Scriptures tell us that the Israelites spent forty years wandering in the desert after they left Egypt on their way to the Promised Land. They knew its location, but they did not know how to get from where they were to the site of the Promised Land. Navigation is also a common problem in today's world, hence the reason that we have maps and GPS installations. We don't enjoy being lost. Nor do we like to acknowledge that we are lost. There certainly were many instances when the Israelites encountered settlements along the journey and could easily have stopped and asked directions. In doing so, they may have cut the length of their journey by as much as 75% or more. Instead, they wandered aimlessly, outraged at God, Moses, and the rest of the world.
Twenty-first century sojourners have the identical characteristics and personality traits as the ancient Israelites. They have a destination in mind at which they are eager to arrive. They argue among themselves as to who has the correct roadmap. They are ready to stone anyone who dares to suggest that their map is outdated or outmoded. They allow pride and anger to blind them to the fact that unless they stop and consult with each other, they may never arrive at their chosen destination.
Hindsight is often 20/20 but foresight can also be 20/20. We can decide that the risk is too great, the challenges too many, and the result too uncertain to continue on a path that many others dispute is the right path. We can choose to stop and consult with each other, to have a 21st century "Jerusalem Council" to determine if there is any methodology for combining the wisdom of our various maps and GPS's and finding the truest path to our destination. We are told that the road is very narrow and only a few find it, but if we combine our resources, the chances of us having the "few" in our midst is enhanced.
The Jerusalem Council was a meeting of religious leaders that took place in the first century. They were disputing among themselves the interpretation of various Scriptures that were critical to the doctrinal purity of the young church. They decided that instead of holding fiercely to their individual interpretations, they would come together as one body, lay their varying interpretations before the group, and come to a consensus with the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit of God. Today, the same methodology can be used to discern the Holy Spirit's intent in regard to the core doctrine of disciples of Jesus from every denomination and religious practice.
There are five major doctrinal issues on which consensus is critical to the future of our world. First, whether Jesus was born of a virgin mother. Second, whether he had in him the spirit of El Elohim, the God of Creation. Third, whether he resurrected from the dead after he was crucified and buried. Fourth, whether he will return to the earth to establish a kingdom for one thousand years to assist us in subduing the forces of hell, and bringing the earth into submission to Godly spiritual principles. Fifth, what should we do in preparation for his coming kingdom, and how can we ensure that we are among those chosen to rule with him. May I suggest that such a council be held in New York City on or before December 20, 2016.
Some time ago I wrote a Blog post titled Sweet Nothings that described the devil's attempts to lure us into an illicit relationship with him. God is desperate to bring us into relationship with Himself, and to enable us to withstand the devil's lure. In contrast to the sweet nothings that the devil whispers, God makes genuine promises that always manifest.
Bible experts as well as religious leaders seem to have come to a point of fatigue as they daily recant the promises of God, yet have few answers to the question of why the fulfillment of those promises often seem so distant. They have proclaimed the coming kingdom of God for two thousand years, yet our world seems to be spiraling out of control. They speak of Jesus healing the sick and raising the dead, yet every day, they watch others helplessly succumb to various illnesses and diseases, and wonder why the first century miracles fail to manifest today with the same power and clarity.
God says to everyone who is experiencing disappointment, anguish, or fatigue that is directly related to the long-awaited return of our Messiah, "The time for fulfillment has arrived." The signs are all around us, yet many are afraid to acknowledge them for fear of being wrong. A similar dilemma occurred during the September 11, 2001 crisis in New York City when occupants of the World Trade Center twin towers reportedly were told to continue their work activities or to return to their offices because "all is well," even after an airplane had crashed into the first building and burst into flames. The apparent concern for the status quo over the common sense response to a fire may have been directly responsible for the more than three thousand death toll.
The Scriptures warn that, as is now occurring, the condition of our world will deteriorate dramatically just prior to the Messiah's return. The darkness is in part a result of the fact that today's disciples who have been charged with being "the light of the world" either have no light (that is, no indwelling Holy Spirit), or have light that is dimmed by the world's excesses. All of the global dilemmas we encounter will seem minor and insignificant when we shine on them the light of God's Holy Spirit (the common sense response to spiritual darkness) and begin to appropriate the promises stated in the Bible.
Farmers generally know the source of good seeds. They define "good seeds" as seeds that have not been genetically modified, that yield a robust harvest, and that are naturally resistant to insects and diseases. Spiritually, a good seed is one that yields only that harvest which we personally would welcome into our lives. If the expected harvest is something we would not want for ourselves, then its seeds always should be rejected.
In the realm of the spirit, whatever seeds we plant always return to us a harvest, even when we are not the intended recipient. The 60/40 rule in physics describes an energy principle which dictates that 40 percent of every harvest from the seeds we plant always will return to us, whether or not we intended a harvest for ourselves. Thus, when we pray for others, we also should expect that 40% of the harvest from the seeds of that prayer always will return to us.
Doing good deeds is one way of planting "good seeds", as is thinking beneficial, positive thoughts, and speaking positive, uplifting words. Essentially, everything that we do for others or do to others always returns to us a 40% harvest in keeping with the nature of the seed. When we think or speak to or about others with strong emotion, those thoughts and words also abide by the 60/40 rule. If you know that you would reject the harvest from the seeds of your thoughts, words, and actions, don't plant the seeds.
Human consciousness is a state of awareness of our relationship to external objects. It is different from animal consciousness because animals cannot influence or control their mental state. Humans can work with or against their state of consciousness, just as we can work with or against the force of gravity. To work against consciousness is to manipulate its basic precepts and principles and to direct our consciousness toward the achievement of a purpose or result that we know would be destructive, or that we would not desire for ourselves. Consciousness holds us responsible for this perversion of its truest purpose.
To work with the state of consciousness is to understand that being alive and awake is being in a state of conscious creation. As we begin to acknowledge and to understand that we are always creating, we become more conscious and more deliberate in our thoughts, words and actions. When we achieve perfect alignment wth consciousness we will have arrived at a place of eternal bliss. However, in our own power it is impossible for us to align perfectly with consciousness, just as it is impossible for someone to align perfectly with the force of gravity so that they never ever drop something, or spill a glass of milk or other liquid. Perfect alignment always requires an intermediary who fully and completely embodies the standard to which all must aspire.
A measuring rod is one type of an intermediary that facilitates alignment within each building structure and between building structures. It is a standard that ensures that in the air, on the sea, and on land, whether you are building a cathedral, a mosque, a museum, or an elementary school, perfect alignment can exist, but only to the extent that each builder agrees with and uses the standard or the "intermediary."
In the context of consciousness, the Holy Spirit of God embodies the principle of perfect alignment with consciousness. He is perfection. To the extent that we individually or collectively aspire to perfect alignment with consciousness, he is the standard that can elevate us to that place of perfect alignment, individually and collectively. He is our intermediary if we choose to have him in our hearts. He can take our world from a place of chaos and confusion to the place of eternal bliss.
We are the ones who must plant the seeds that will bring to fruition the purposes of God. If we never plant seeds, or if the seeds are corrupted, the harvest will be different from what is expected. If we plant acorns, we should expect a harvest of acorns, not of tomatoes or peaches. Similarly, we cannot expect to remedy the problems in our world if we are planting the same seeds of anger, selfish-ambition, hatred, jealousy, greed and envy that brought us this present harvest of wars, plagues, disasters, epidemics, and financial collapses. We are the ones who must choose the seeds that will bring to fruition the purposes of God.
Coming to an agreement is never easy. Some agreements fail at the outset, others get off to a good start then begin to fade into obscurity, and still others manifest into a real workable deal. When an agreement coalesces and manifests into a working deal, it generally is because all parties to the agreement began at a point of least contention.
When you need to see into a future that is different from the present, you need your imagination to craft a different reality, but it is never guaranteed. When you need to ensure that the future is in fact different from the present, you need the Holy Spirit of God.
