The Regenerating Life

The Regenerating Life

 

Out of the depths, the Oneness that always was, encounters the mind of the soul.

Hidden beneath the thick vapor of the self-directed mind, the oneness shared between the soul and its Creator resides as the divine-self. As this Oneness begins to surface in the mind of the soul, the mirage of the false-self begins to fade and the soul awakens to a divinely directed life. As the divine consciousness becomes the soul’s conscience experience, the real that always was manifests.

The Creator expresses himself in Creation through the soul that is formed to be a conduit of his Spirit. Thus, the soul knows and experiences him through its divine-self and the projected reality this self creates. The Creator is the “I” of the soul. There is no separation between the soul’s existence and his eternal life, for without him there is no soul.

Awakening to the Divine-Self Within

As the soul lets go of its self-will, its divine-self rises to the surface from the depths where it remained hidden beneath the drama and noise of the false-self. In this awakening, the soul is renewed bit by bit as it throws off every self-directed thought as untrue. These false thoughts fall away like empty shells as they’ve been stripped of all their power held by belief and emotion. All the elements of the soul’s reality once created by these thoughts; its fabricated personality, contrived appearances, and its reality cloaked with the likeness of decay and death, begin to fade.

Thought is the mental substance of the consciousness. When the soul’s consciousness begins to shift from the self-determined consciousness to the divine, it experiences a change in its thoughts. Slowly the thought matter alters from coming from the former consciousness to coming from the latter.

As the soul begins to awaken to its divine-self, it realizes this self was always its true essence; and the rest was imagination. With this awareness, the soul perceives it’s an extension of the Creator and always has been; any separation was an illusion.

During this transitory period, the soul ceases to focus on outward appearances that were constructed by the false-self, for they are passing away. Instead the soul centers on and operates from the internal divine frameworks of truth that begin to renew its mind with transformative grace, which in time transforms its reality into an expressively divine one.

The Elixir of Regeneration

The energetic substance of the divine-self is divine love. The unconditional and regenerating aspect of this love is grace. As the divine-self and the Creator are totally one; the soul is his expressive medium into creation. Because abundant divine grace is the heart of the Creator, the divine-self desires to extend this grace to all as well. As the soul gives divine grace, it receives it from the Source; like a fountainhead. In this outpouring, the soul’s heart is transformed into an open gate of the Creator’s unconditional love.

Bound to the illusion of the false-self, the soul abided in the ramifications (compensation or judgment) of its erroneous thinking. Grace manifests the right inherent in every wrong, thus judgment (penalty for error) is swallowed up in divine love. As the soul desires to give the substance of grace to all others, it receives grace and this grace transitions every other mental element (the content of its consciousness) into a divine element. Grace covers all and brings the bounty of goodness out of everything. In the face of grace, no error matters because grace is all-consuming. It’s the elixir of healing, renewal and regeneration.

The rising of the divine-self is the rising of the Christ spirit within the soul; a spirit of abundant divine grace. All that will be is present in the now. The Spirit is in the present in all omnipotence, omnipresence and omniscience. It can’t be less than what it is. Thus, the soul awakens to what always was. As the soul gives thus receives grace, it rises to the Christ Spirit within; who was always within its midst.

Absolution

When the soul begins to perceive the Kingdom of God (divine consciousness) within, the soul identifies the absolute sovereignty of the Creator that was, is and always will be. He was always “in charge”, and the self-directed will that he gave the soul to operate in was an offshoot of his own. Thus, all that the soul created through its self-will was within his divine providence.

Everything that occurred during the soul’s journey through the wilderness of the false-self was meaningful and within the governance of the Creator’s perfect orchestration, thus ultimately the Creator’s responsibility. In this profound understanding into the depths of divine love, the soul experiences a complete liberation from the ramifications of all error. The soul fully relinquishes to the Creator all responsibility that it took upon itself which created endless cycles of inferiority, shame, guilt, and fear. At this release, these four core drivers of the false-self are systematically absolved.

A Divine Will

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.”

John 15:7-9

The will of the Creator that was once hidden beneath the vapor of the self-will rises to the top so that the prayer of the Christ, who is made manifest in the divine-self, is fulfilled; “Thy Kingdom come and Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven”.

Because the Creator’s will sovereignly governs the divine-self, as the divine-self asserts itself over the false-self, so does the Creator’s will over the self-will.

The Creator is beyond the soul and yet fully one with it as the divine-self. The soul is his body so that all he does is done through the soul in thought, belief, word and deed. Thus for grace to flow or any other character of the Creator, it must flow through the soul. This means the soul comes to desire the abundance of his divine attributes and nothing self-contrived.

Thus, the “Kingdom of God” (the divine consciousness) comes through the soul; again in thought, belief, word and deed. Once the soul forsakes the false-self thus all its strength found in its self-will, then the divine-self begins to rise and shine to bring forth the Kingdom.

As the Kingdom comes, the divine will is no longer a passive component but an active one to the consciousness of the soul. In this exchange of will-power, the soul is no longer a slave to the self-will, but free by the governance of the divine will.

In this flip, all is turned upside down and inside out as all is made wholly divine through grace. It’s a rise from weakness to true power. As the soul abides in the divine consciousness, divine truths manifest through the risen divine-self. The beauty and bounty of the divine attributes expressed through those truths bloom up in and around the soul casting a reflection of the Creator’s love. Where the soul came to know its unconquerable weaknesses; with this shift of wills, it operates by the one and true power found in divine love. The soul’s hunger and thirst to perfectly love that caused it to give up all for love is finally fulfilled with each moment growing more and more glorious.

This victory already exists in this present moment; as all was finished from the beginning. As the soul awakens to the truth of this victory (faith) found in the depths of its divine self (the manifestation of the internal Christ); the faith begins to manifest the victory through the grace inherent in the Christ.

Shifts in Consciousness

The Transformative Shift

In Consciousness

 

Once the divine light internalizes at the root of the soul, the transformative shift in consciousness begins to bring the entire human soul into oneness. It’s a transformation of the collective human soul from the self-determined consciousness into the divine consciousness.

The Cause for this Shift

The self-determined consciousness creates a perpetual state of separation. The divine consciousness creates an eternal state of oneness. The soul can’t progress from one to the other, as I’ve described throughout my posts, it must shed one for the other through a metamorphosis or new birth, a process where the soul is cultivated, shaped and constructed by the Spirit of Truth, not the will of self. When the soul embarks upon the path of oneness, this shift becomes a living potential for the human soul.

Shifts in Consciousness

There are evolutionary shifts in consciousness and there is the transformative shift in consciousness. Evolutionary shifts are progressive states of awareness of truth and love within the self-determined consciousness. A soul who is actively engaging this path moves toward increasing awareness and mindfulness, love, harmony, unity, and discovers spiritual principles governing the soul and its reflective reality. Along this path, the soul evolves in its desire to a place of wanting to love absolutely perfectly, and realizes it can’t within its current consciousness. At this juncture the soul’s evolutionary path overlaps onto the path of oneness.

On the evolutionary path of progression the soul seeks to move toward the Source of Divinity from within the self-determined consciousness. This is an endless path toward oneness and never obtaining it, as I described in my previous post. The inherent foundation of this consciousness is separation, thus there is always an element of separation no matter how much the soul progresses. The soul can advance through endless levels of consciousness and yet never obtain a full oneness. Because separation is inherent in this path, so is death.

However, it’s an attractive path for a soul seeking reprieve from its false self for along it the soul gains a sense of growing empowerment through its higher self, which is always the next level of consciousness above the soul’s current level.  

The Spirit of Truth reveals another path that overlays this evolutionary path, and yet takes the soul in a different direction, the path of oneness. (As taught and revealed in Jesus Christ for this Spirit was complete in him.) Unlike the former path that consists of self-perfecting the soul through its current state of consciousness, this path leads the soul to shun and shed the self-determined consciousness and its ways (“to die to it”), and to seek to be fully governed from beyond itself yet at its core by the divine consciousness. It’s a letting go of all self-determination, so the soul can undergo a metamorphosis. Matthew 16:24 On this path, trust increases solely in the Divine who is beyond the soul yet connected to it, versus a higher self.

On this journey, the soul loses its life and all that it created. It’s completely stripped down. Instead of a sense of growing empowerment, the soul experiences increasing weakness. Thus, this path is very challenging and very humbling. Therefore few persevere through it; not understanding or questioning its intent or end. Because it feels like the soul is dying as all of its self-will is dying, the “survival” reaction is to seek what emboldens the soul, thus the soul seeks to stay solely on the path of progression. However, the paradox of the path of oneness is through the death of the soul’s self-directed nature it finds life and ends death forever.

“For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.” Luke 9:24

The path of oneness entails the Source of all Life constructing a place for his Spirit to reside as a part of the human soul so that he comes to the soul, versus the soul progressing toward him. It’s impossible for the soul to ascend to him to obtain oneness, but it’s possible for the Creator to transform the soul by his Spirit to be the home of his Spirit. Matthew 19:24-28

The path of oneness establishes a gate at the core of the collective human soul in which the divine consciousness can govern the entire human soul. It’s Adam and Eve in reverse in accordance to the reflection the Spirit of Christ (God at one with the human soul). When the Spirit of God abides at the root of the human soul, then it is at the origin of the collective human soul, thus every soul. When this gate is established, every individual soul begins its transformation from being governed by the self-determined consciousness to the divine; each soul in its order and timing; like a dawning day. But once the firstfruits of the divine consciousness, the soul/spirit aspects in the likeness of Adam and Eve, begin their transformation, then all methodically follow. Though few travel the path of oneness, it’s a path that changes all. 1 Corinthians 15

Thus on the path of oneness, death and all its variations are defeated. Death (decay) is a manifestation of separation, which is created by the self-determined consciousness. There is no death in true life, thus in the divine consciousness. Because all that truly exists is the divine consciousness, death is an illusion. It’s a manifestation of this simulated self-determined consciousness that is serving a purpose for a time. As long as death exists, this self-directed consciousness is governing the soul. But when the divine consciousness takes over, the soul begins to regenerate out of death and into immortality within and without. Thus, the soul comes to an end to all that it was as a self-determined mind, body and soul, and becomes all it truly is as a divinely governed being.

Journey into Oneness

As the soul seeks to draw near to the true Creator (not an image), who is defined by divine love and absolute truth, the Spirit of Truth instructs the soul in the ways of this divine consciousness as it relates to the human soul (Christ consciousness). And through this engagement, the soul is conceptually divinely constructed, so that the Spirit of God can make his home in the soul. John 14:21-23 Instead of the soul progressing toward the Divine, the Divine makes a place for itself in the soul, and comes to the soul.

When the conceptual frameworks of divinity are completed for transformation, the divine light is received into its new home and the transformation begins. This divine light is the tri-fold love exchange at the core or root of the soul. The old frameworks of the self-determined consciousness begin to fall away like old rotten wooden beams, and in a metamorphic process the eternal divine beams of light constructed by the Spirit of Truth take their place. The soul passes through a conscious death and re-birth, like a caterpillar to a butterfly.

Divine Joy

When the soul begins to vibrate with the divine love energy, one of its first sensational experiences is an underling continuous current of joy; divine joy. It’s divine because it never abates. This joy is the soul’s response to experiencing the constant inflow of the energy of divine love.

Experiencing this divine joy creates a response of divine gratitude (true praise) back to the Creator. This intimate energetic vibrational exchange between the soul and the Source never ceases. It feels like the exuberate joy of a child with the maturity of divinity.

Effortless Transformation

Because the physical reality is a projection of the soul, as the soul begins to transform so does the reality. This transformation is effortless for the soul because it occurs by the Spirit of God flowing through it; not the soul’s efforts. Thus the soul experiences rest in movement as it and all its reality begins to transition moment by moment. While driven by the self-determined consciousness, the soul’s journey was one of striving, but once the spark of the divine consciousness is internalized, the soul shifts from striving to rest. It enters a state of being in its oneness with the Source. This rest translates into all the soul’s reality, for as within so is without. The soul resides as a creative witness as its reality grows in life and harmony through its expressive soul elements now governed by the divine consciousness.

Though the path of oneness is challenging, it encapsulates the most beautiful love story ever told.

Purified vs. Stream of Righteousness

Purified Vessel

vs.

Stream of Righteousness

space

beautiful arch in rock in Bryce CanyonThe narrow path, into the narrow gate, is the path of purification of our heart, mind and soul so that we are transformed to be a spiritual offspring of the divine and not of the carnal. Matthew 7:14, John 3:4-6 The narrow gate is our purified spirit, and through the narrow gate we enter into the power of God, and the power of God into us.

The narrow gate is entrance into the kingdom of eternity, where nothing that defiles can enter in, only those purified in heart. Matthew 5:8, Rev 21:27, 1 Corin 6:9-11 The gate is our spirit (sum of mind, heart, soul). Once purified, we can connect or be opened to the realm of the divine to receive the dynamic nature of the righteousness of God. Righteousness is the perfect wisdom for the moment. It’s thinking, doing, and saying the right thing at the right time, which is to love perfectly. Being only a gate, we control none of righteousness flow. We are simply a pure vessel of honor for it to flow through. 1 Thess 4:3-5 For, it’s with a pure heart and mind that we are able to “prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”. Romans 12:2 Once cleansed from the residue of the rebellious mind by the truths of God, then we are able to enter the narrow gate into the realm of the divine, as partakers of the divine. Thus, we are one with God and He with us. John 17:21-23

Though our vessel (mind, heart, soul) is cleansed so that we think, desire and act in purity, we still lack righteousness. Self-righteousness is thinking (judging) we know what is righteous in any one situation or moment. Because we are not all knowing, it is impossible on our own, no matter how pure we are, to know the perfect loving thing to do in any one moment. For any one response to someone, there are always a plethora of choices of what we could do or say, and further we don’t know the true deep needs or hurts of another. Thus, though we have good intentions, we can still hurt others because of our lack of knowing. Our inherent limited capabilities keep us from acting perfectly right, thus righteous.  So though we may be purified in our thoughts and desires to only give divine love, we are still not all knowing, thus we need the wisdom of God to flow through us as a continual stream every moment of our existence if we want to walk rightly.

This difference between being purified as a vessel and actually able to act in righteousness is taught in the life of Job. When we walk the path of purification, our minds are completely transformed so that we desire nothing but goodness and love for all of creation. In this, we can mistakenly assume that we can walk in righteousness, for our thoughts and desires are pure.  It says that Job was “blameless and upright and one who feared God and shunned evil.” Job 1:1 He was pure in heart, yet he still lacked one very important thing that is everything, righteousness. Righteousness can only come from God as a continuous river, which God is the source, because only God knows the perfectly right thing to do in any one moment. Amos 5:24 This is why Jesus said, He only does what He sees the Father do. He was streaming the righteousness of God. John 5:19

Job was blameless, but he mistaken that purity for righteousness. Job 34:5-6 But by stripping away his life fruit was he able to see his inherent weakness. He came to the understanding that even though he was man of purity, that was nothing without the righteousness of God moving through him; a righteousness he could never contain on his own as a limited created being. It can only flow through him. Thus an ever-dependent need on God. This realization is what it means to be poor in spirit. And, the kingdom of heaven belongs to the poor in spirit. Matthew 5:3

We are nothing apart from the vine. John 15:5 But to be apart of the vine, we must first become a purified vessel, so the living waters of righteousness can flow through us. Otherwise our rebellious nature and mind stand in the way of the flow of the righteousness.

Christ is the door. He is the way. He is the truth. He is the life. He is the one that leads us on that path of purity as our internal teacher, out of the mind of rebellion. He leads us to the gate, which is an oneness with His spirit. Like a bride clothed in white prepared for her husband, He purifies us by teaching us the truth and we in turn obeying His instruction on how to abide in divine love. Thus, through Him we have access to the living waters of righteousness. In oneness with Him for all eternity, righteousness is a never-ending river flowing through us so that we live in righteousness as He does.  He truly is our righteousness, the Lord our Righteousness. Jeremiah 33:16

It is this union that contains the power of eternal life that this world and we so desperately need. The work of the Holy Spirit has been to teach us and lead us into all truth, thus all purity. He cleanses our thoughts, minds and souls preparing us for an oneness with God, for only the pure in heart see God. Only the pure in heart can enter into God’s holy presence. This path of purification is the race we run. Hebrews 12:1 It’s working out our salvation with holy fear and trembling. Phil 2:12 It’s obeying Christ, the truth, because we love Him and want to be one with Him, thus one with His truth. Our obedience to abiding in divine love is our purification process to ready us for unity with Him, our continual righteousness.

The lesson we learn before entering the narrow gate is we must not mistake our purification for righteousness. The purification of our vessel is what allows perfect righteousness to flow through us. For eternity we are dependent on this flow of righteousness from Him for every moment, and this is what our oneness with Him gives us. And in this flow is His power.

Eternal Love Leading to Eternal Life

Eternal Love

Leading to Eternal Life

How does one cross the infinite chasm between death and life?

This question is the journey of our earthly lives. Its path involves obtaining an inter-working of truths gained from the situations of our lives and the instruction of the Spirit of Truth. All learning leads to one glorious truth; the heavenly Father’s eternal love brings us into eternal life. His love reaches across the chasm and meets our desire to be loved and to love perfectly.

Though this is our journey, many souls neglect sojourning this pilgrimage and get caught up in trying to beautify this death experience. However we try to alter it, it’s still death. Matthew 13:1-23 What fulfills us is our souls being filled with eternal love, thus leaving behind our death existence and reaching for one beyond it. John 14:2-3 This death phase of our soul’s journey is to teach us. When we learn and share what we need to, it comes to an end.

The path to eternal life is knowing eternal love. John 17:3

The Greatest Gift We Give

The greatest gift we can give the heavenly Father is ironically the only gift we can give One who possess’ all – our desire to love Him perfectly. What gift can a helpless child give his Dad? That no one else can? A true desire to love him. And each child’s love is unique, precious, and irreplaceable. Matthew 18:13-14

I say desire because when we seek the fusion of truth and love within us, thus in our lives, what we discover is that we can’t love anyone perfectly. Therefore, we face the infinite chasm to perfect love (eternal life). A little recap, perfect love means perfect obedience to the heavenly Father’s will; for His will is love in all things and in all situations. Obedience entails knowing and doing His will at all times. Therefore, to love perfectly requires all knowing and understanding, which we created beings don’t possess. Therefore, we can never love Him or anyone perfectly of our own accord; a love that is synonymous with eternity.

Yet what we CAN possess is the deep soul desire to love perfectly. And it’s the only possession we need; a desire to love in all sincerity, honor and truth the heavenly Father and all of creation; which is His. This desire leads to the bridging of the gap between death and life.

The Father tells us He will give us the desires of our heart IF our delight is in Him. Psalm 37:4 This promise is our deliverance; doing what we never could. He is love. Thus, in delighting in Him, we desire the purest of love. This desire the Father will fulfill. Luke 12:32 In His timing when His Son rises in us, He makes us into creations who although have finite understanding possess divine love. Impossible for us, but not for Him. Mark 10:27

Seeking Leads to a Desire to Love

The seeking to know the true heavenly Father beyond all mankind’s concepts, portrayals and images of this Supreme Spirit leads to seeking the very essence of pure love and truth and the fusion of the two. At the onset of our seeking, we do not fully desire all that He is. False images create fears that keep us distant. But as we press on, we come to know His glorious character, and the desire to be consumed by Him bubbles up in us. A hunger for truth and love forms within; a hunger that pushes us on until we are filled. Matthew 5:6

If you have this desire you are greatly blessed; for you will be fulfilled.

As we seek for this love and truth within and without, we begin to see glimpses of it at our Father’s instruction. Without His instruction to each one of us, we remain blind to this love/truth that is hidden from our minds that are overran with lies and deception.  Thus, we lack a true desire for it. John 6:45 But as we seek, His light shines within our internal darkness and we see there is another existence for us; an eternal existence in an eternal love. We come to a moment that consumes every following moment; a moment when we desire nothing else but to have His love within us so we can love perfectly. We willingly let go of every aspect of our existence that hinders this love from manifesting; thus everything contrary to it. It’s this magnificent love that causes us to forsake all that mimics life, leap across the chasm, and take a hold His outstretched hand.

To make the leap requires an intimate knowing the TRUE heavenly Father, spirit of perfect love. In this knowing of His love, we come to trust Him fully, which we need to make the leap because we don’t know where the River of His governance will carry us. We leap when our will is for His will to fill every breath. It’s a full abandonment to our expectations; except that abiding in His love creates perfection.

As, we press into Him, we find the consummation of all our desires in Him and fulfilled by Him. Thus, He gives us His eternal love that leads to eternal life.

Characteristics of the Spirit Mind

Characteristics of the Spirit Mind

 

The womb of this world is opening and bringing forth the sons of God. Galatians 4:19 They are going through the torn veil and entering into the Holy of Holies to abide in the presence of God and thus for His presence to fill their present. Mark 15:38, John 3:5-6 These symbolic illustrations point to and describe mankind transitioning from the finite flesh mind into the eternal spirit mind. And, what happens as you go through the birth canal leaving the water (womb/earth) and entering into the air (spirit/heaven)? You leave the unreal, death and lies, and enter the real, life and truth. Revelation 4:1

The real has been hidden in the unreal. Revelation 2:17  The real is the present moment, which mankind experiences as a flash because the finite flesh mind abides in the past and the future. Yet the present moment is the only part of our existence that is real. The past only exists as a memory and the future doesn’t exist. So as we are born into the spirit, our minds move into the present and that present expands to become eternity. Abiding in the present is how we dwell within the presence of God because that is where God exists, in the real. When we become present minded within the presence of God, we enter into eternity. When our minds change; we change. This is gaining the mind of Christ. It’s a state of being connected to and governed by the mind of God; thus the will of God. John 12:26, John 5:30, John 8:28. Abiding in the present is the only place we can truly do the Father’s will because there we are completely governed by Him.

This transformation is the work of Christ in us; who is our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30 It’s the new wine-skins and the new wine. This transformation is becoming as a child to enter into the Kingdom; moving into the present as we abide in absolute trust of our loving heavenly Father. Luke 18:17, Matthew 18:4, Matthew 6:33

Below are some mind-shifts we go through as we transition from a finite flesh mind into an eternal spirit mind. As we shift, we become a light in the darkness as the presence of God becomes our reality in the present. Some of these I’ve discussed in videos; some I have not; but I’m sure I will.  This is an amazing transformation, and above all we have to trust God to direct it and create it perfectly in us. Our part is to listen and follow, starting now. Zech 6:15

The points below lead to living in the present moment and God’s sovereign reign in our minds, thus lives.

  • We DRAW WISDOM from the pure consciousness of God and not from the mass consciousness of mankind. James 3:14-17, John 6:27, 63
  • Our EXPECTATIONS are of the PRESENT moment and are ONLY of the things of the SPIRIT (peace, loving kindness, honor, peace, joy, etc), thus no pre-defined physical images dictated by the mankind’s wisdom. 2 Timothy 2:20-26

(The above discussed in: Reshaping the Mind to Abundant life)

  • We SUBMIT our “FREE-WILL” (not truly free, but our ability to create “desired” images of the future based on our present surroundings and pursue those images) to God and let Him direct our will in everything, as we learn following our will only leads to harm. This submission is the true humility, and fear of God. Luke 9:23-24, Isaiah 57:15, Micah 6:8
  • In the moment, we FOLLOW the PROMPTING that comes to mind (action or words to speak) if it’s best to do it at that time. Otherwise, we recommit the idea/task to God and let Him bring it to mind to do in the future. Psalm 37:5-6, 23 What is best is determined by what aligns to the nature of God (what creates peace, love, kindness, joy, rest). This knowledge of God’s nature is the oil (truth) we need in our lamp (soul) to be lit (connected to Christ). Now you see why; it’s the foundation needed to be able to be present minded. Matthew 25:1-12, John 6:45 
    • Thus, planning for the future (lists, goals, etc) is greatly limited; instead we trust God to prompt and direct us daily and keep our expectations of the spirit. Isaiah 55:8-9, Galatians 5:22-23

(The above discussed in: Sabbath Rest and the Eternal Mind)

  • The present creates the future; thus TODAY we ACT on the WISDOM of God that creates peace, love, mercy, joy, honor, etc today. For, tomorrow is created out of today. James 3:18
    • One moment establishes and directs the next, thus we let God establish loving-kindness and peace in this moment by the wisdom He gives us.
  • We FULLY TRUST God to direct our actions/steps each day according to His wisdom. We listen in the awareness of our present and obey. Prov 3:5-6
  • We are AT PEACE and REST as we can abide fully in the present moment without worrying about the next. When we are doing what God directs each moment, we know we are doing the perfect thing at that time; we don’t need to be concerned with doing something else. Isaiah 26:3
  • We trust God with all our SPIRITUAL development; trusting He is working ALL for our good in each moment. Romans 8:28, Psalm 32:10 We listen, learn, and obey His voice more continually in conscious awareness thus moving obedience into our unconscious awareness. And, His mercy covers all as we grow in unity with Him. We trust Him with the increase of our growth; as it’s His work in us. Ephesians 2:10, 1 Corin 3:7 We trust Him to bring to mind the concepts/truths we learn from Him, when we need them. John 14:26
  • By grace, we are PURGED from MINDSETS of HARM that keep us tied to the past, thus to the pit; like blame, personal vengeance, and un-forgiveness. As a child; we lift up those who hurt us to our Father and let Him counsel us and work out the situation for the good of all. Matthew 5:44, Luke 6:35 We follow His instruction and don’t seek personal retribution. Matthew 6:14-15, Romans 12:17-21

(The above discussed in: Letting Go of the Pit )

  • We FOLLOW our NATURAL RHYTHM, thus not hurried/rushed or slowing down (procrastination, etc). Thus, God directs the happenings of our lives; while we let go of trying to control how the future occurs. Jeremiah 8:6
  • Once we commit all our desires to God, God directs us by our desires. Thus, we DO WHAT WE DESIRE, not what we don’t, this is a significant part of loving without hypocrisy. Psalm 37:4-5
  • We SEE ourselves, others, and God in the PUREST of LOVE for we are “seeing” from within the presence of God, who is love. In this “sight”; pure love is sown and grown in the earth. This love entails all the characteristics of God; honor, truth, purity, righteousness, mercy, justice, peace, etc. Thus, all our actions and words are of the intent of the purest of love. 1 John 4:16

We are like trees; we grow. The Kingdom of Heaven is like a tree that grows. Matthew 13:31-32 This transition is a process. Trust your heavenly Father to birth you into His Kingdom perfectly. It’s He who establishes your faith as He assembles the truth, His mind, in you. When God creates your reality, your present, then you are a son of God. Romans 8:19, Romans 8:14

A Mind of Eternity

A Mind of Eternity:

Truth Replacing Lies Masquerading as Truth

In a recent video, How We Carry the Presence of God, I described how we interact with our Heavenly Father and thus His wisdom. (note: I’ve been doing a lot more videos as the new wine is forming, thus I haven’t been able to keep up with all of them here, but please check them out for they hold very powerful truths: Stirring the Deep YouTube.) Through this communion is how we disconnect from receiving from the mass consciousness of letting mankind’s wisdom fill our thoughts, and connect to the pure consciousness of letting our heavenly Father’s wisdom fill our thoughts. When you make this shift you start to gain a mind of eternity, the mind of Christ. Romans 12:2, Matthew 7:21, Matthew 12:50

When you begin receiving from the pure consciousness of God; then what you automatically put into the mass consciousness is that purity. 1 Timothy 3:9, 1 John 5:4 This is how Christ, the Word of God, is going to renew the earth. He develops His perfect mind in those in true communion with His spirit, and they put the thoughts of that mind into the mass consciousness. John 17:17, 2 Thess 2:8 This is Christ coming with His saints. 1 Thess 3:13 It’s Christ’s spirit united to those who have been purified, then they spread His spirit, the spirit of truth and kingship, into the world. By having their mind cleansed into the pure consciousness of God, over time they alter the mass consciousness. Hebrews 10:22 Galatians 4:19, Matthew 25:31 It’s like medicine to a sick body. Romans 5:12-21

The mass consciousness will keep altering until it’s consumed in pure wisdom; thus all truth and no lies. (A lie is a concept/idea presented as truth promising a certain outcome.) 1 Corin 15:22-28, Isaiah 52:1-2 This is why the saints are the light to the darkness. The light is the wisdom of God, the darkness is the wisdom of mankind under the sway of evil. Matthew 5:15-16, Job 12:22

This pure truth will eventually replace all the lies. Lies only continue because the truth is not known. Without truth, people believe a lie as truth because they believe some thought, word or act produces something good; when it actually produces harm. When a lie is exposed by the truth in all its fullness, for there can be many layers to a lie, then it disappears. It was never real, so it ceases to exist.

Fear comes from a lie trying to hold on; it is what you feel when a lie is fighting to stay alive in your mind. Thus, as the lies are being usurped by the truth, fear will increase among those holding onto the lies. This is why there is no fear for those walking in righteousness; and those in unrighteousness are consumed in fears. This is also why you want to be seeking TRUTH in LOVE from God Himself; fear is a debilitating state of mind that produces significant harm. Proverbs 10:24, Isaiah 14:3, Isaiah 54:14

People operating by the corrupted mass consciousness exist in death. It keeps them bound in lies and false images about the past, present, and future. Lies are attached to images because they aren’t real. The image they are attached to makes them seem real. When the images are revealed for what they are; illusions, lies are destroyed because they were never real in the first place. (Images like what is a successful person, a happy life, a desirable woman, to be intellectual, a godly person, who God is, etc.) Because lies aren’t real, those who believe them and live by them are “non-existent” or dead. They aren’t living in reality. Psalm 115:4-8

Do you see how an image makes a lie real? Remember when you use to believe in Santa Claus? You had an “image” of him in your mind supported by people and things around you. When you learned he wasn’t real; you no longer had that “image” in your mind. If you lived a life serving an illusion like Santa Claus, what would your life be? The most damaging image we can possess is a false image of God; which religions create in the minds of people. When you have a false image of God; you are bound to death, the pit, and darkness and to all other images that imprison you; for He is the truth, way and light you need to be freed in every way.

The eternal mind is a polar opposite thought process from the mass consciousness under evil’s sway. Seek this mind of Christ.

This huge mind shift from operating as a dead creation of a finite flesh mind to a living creation of an eternal spirit mind has begun within the elect, the light bearers. I’ve been talking about this shift in recent videos, like Reshaping the Mind to Abundant life. To live in the wisdom of God is to live in the present moment in truth/love. The present is what is real, not the past or future. In the present is where God exists. To abide within the presence of God requires us to be present spirit minded.

“Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times,
And the strength of salvation;
The fear of the Lord is His treasure”

Isaiah 33:6

Time for Renewal in You, In the Earth

Time for Renewal in You,

Thus in the Earth

 

How this new year goes comes down to this …

Most likely I’ll be speaking about obedience in the next several posts; as obedience is key to regenerating into a new creation; which has now begun in those of the Day. Matthew 19:28  Thus instruction in this area is pouring forth. Personally, I’m transitioning in ways I never have before; in essence from learning truth to becoming and living the truth. These are incredible days we are living in to say it extremely lightly.

The idea of obedience has negative connotations, and rightly so. The ones we’ve obeyed in this earthly existence lacked pure love, thus obedience has often been harmful and unproductive.

But obedience to a perfect loving Father is TOTALLY ABSOLUTELY different. Obedience to the heavenly Father is a path to the attainment of our deepest desires (purest of love, wisdom, joy, purpose, peace, purity, and blessing, which are all characteristics of our Father). This obedience is a delight because you walk in the purest of love thus receiving the purest of love. Put aside the negativity around obedience and seek to know it in relation to the heavenly Father who loves you. Remember His obedience is different; it is love. Put aside your expectations and listen. Matthew 11:29-30

Obedience Now Possible

Obedience wasn’t possible until the Father came in Christ reconciling Himself to the world. 2 Corinthians 5:19 That plan has been playing out for thousands of years. On the dawn of Christ’s rising in our hearts; that obedience is possible. 2 Peter 1:19, Revelation 22:16 As He returns within us, His righteousness mind becomes our own. Luke 17:21

We’ve had the instruction of the Holy Spirit teaching us about the Father, about His love and ways. 1 John 2:27  For those listening, the truths gained purified us to enable a marriage with Christ within us. John 17:17, John 15:3 We’ve learned from this Spirit, and now as the Light dawns in our hearts those truths are deepening and growing in power to transform us. It’s Christ spirit resurrecting us giving us His mind in place of our own that empowers us to walk in His ways.

As the Light dawns in us we begin to see much clearer. We realized what we saw before of our Father was a stick figure drawing of understanding. Knowing the heavenly Father as He unites to our spirits through Christ produces a MUCH deeper understanding and wisdom than we have ever had before. This is the new wine; and now different it is from the old.  At His return, the oppression of the enemy that kept us bound to unrighteousness is being lifted and replaced with His power to live in righteous love. Matthew 5:20-48

It’s an intense spiritual growth happening as we gain the mind of Christ by our spirits being knit to the One who is our salvation, the Lord Our Righteousness. Jeremiah 33:16

As Christ returns to reign in righteousness, we have a new power to obey, a new power to walk righteously; for this is what it means for Christ to reign in righteousness. His reign is in our souls. In walking in this Light and power, our lives are transformed into something amazing, beyond anything we’ve imagined. Are you experiencing this? Blessed are you for you will be a light to others. Isaiah 10:21-23

Isaiah 9:2 The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined.

With this Light rising in our hearts, the power to leave the pit is given. The prison doors are flung open. The Light is shining in a place, our soul, that once was dark. It leads us, the prisoners, to freedom. Our acts of disobedience imprison us; the acts of obedience set us free.

Christ gave us His spirit not so we didn’t have to walk in God’s will but so that we could. Matthew 5:17-18 When we are righteous the law is fulfilled. Matthew 5:48 He enables us to do what we could never do on our own – be righteousness. Do you believe this? If you don’t your lack of faith will send you into tribulation. If you do, your faith is your victory.

Isaiah 9:3-5 You have multiplied the nation And increased its joy; They rejoice before You According to the joy of harvest, As men rejoice when they divide the spoil. For You have broken the yoke of his burden And the staff of his shoulder, The rod of his oppressor, As in the day of Midian. For every warrior’s sandal from the noisy battle, And garments rolled in blood, Will be used for burning and fuel of fire.

As long as you choose to stay in disobedience or believe you can’t do any different; that mindset will cast a darkness in front of you. Though the Light is near you – you can not see it. The Light will always be at your back until you turn to it. 2 Chronicles 30:9, Jeremiah 2:27 You turn by obeying His words spoken to you about your personal circumstances and life. (It isn’t following religious doctrine; it is living in loving kindness to all)

Examine Your Life; By Examining Your Heart

Take a look with the Father into your heart … there is an area you know you are walking contrary to His will and ways; perhaps a sin or temptation that has plagued you. Now is the time to break free as the prison doors have been opened. The strength of the enemy, the power of lies and deception, is being cast down. Take that area and seek the truth from the Father who loves you and ask for the truth that will set you free. Then whatever way He leads you to obey – do it. It may seem like an unrelated area, but obey. He is building your trust in Him and that His ways truly do lead to life and that His ways truly are good and He is far more loving than you thought.

As you obey, you’ll experience more power as with each step you move out of the pit and into the Light, His presence of peace. He is truth. To be united to Him you must be in His ways; this is what unity means. Obedience leads you straight into His heart; a heart of peace, love, joy, unity, wisdom, blessing that you experience in your spiritual and physical life.

Wisdom (understanding God’s truths in your life) leads to obedience (walking in God’s ways) that leads to power (those ways transforming your life) and that power feels like pure love.

Obedience is easy to do when you understand the wisdom behind it and see the abundant love in it. Then your response is “of course!”

The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life;

Baptized by the Holy Spirit and Fire

Those prepared by the Holy Spirit and fire will be able to partake of the Tree of Life; the Tree that brings eternal life. Matthew 3:11

Genesis 3:22-24 Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”– therefore the LORD God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.

Hebrews 12:4 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

The Tree of Life is guarded by a flaming sword. The Tree is the spirit of eternal life, and the flaming sword, the Word of God. We must traverse through and with the Word of God and become One with the Word to transition into eternal life. Revelation 19:13, Galatians 2:20, John 6:45

A New Mind

The spirit of eternal life was cut off from Adam and Eve when they dismissed the commandment of God, thus they would die. The moment they chose to go contrary to the will of God, the disease of sin entered their mind. Like a cancer it took over their mind, transgression became a part of mankind, and a world of death was created. As is your mind, so you create. This is the problem that has plagued our world.

Adam and Eve revealed to us that mankind could and would stray from the realm of God’s will. They had abundant freedom, yet in their lust to be wise of themselves they chose to ignore God’s instruction. In love, the Father would destroy the mind of corruption by destroying their desire to chose their own way and give them a desire for a new mind, in which they would never stray. Walking in the shadow of death taught them and all those who would come through them what a mind contrary to God manifests. Thus, a desire for His mind is created.

The new mind they would receive would not only be able to connect with the Father, but also be a part of Him. In being a part of His mind; they would never go contrary to it. But they and all those born from them would have to choose to have His mind; for love chooses to love.

Through Christ, the Word, the door, the way and the bread of life, a new mind is established in us. He is our grace, power and Teacher to create in us this new mind; one surrendered fully to the will of God and operating by His wisdom alone; a lesson we all have to learn from our lives so that in truth we can chose His mind. Matthew 23:8

The Eternal Spirit

Now as the end of this age draws to a close and a new one begins; the minds prepared by the Spirit of truth, by feasting on truth, will be united with the life-giving spirit; the Tree of Life.

For those who diligently seek, who aren’t to busy with the cares of the world to be with the Teacher, they will partake of the Tree of Life. Matthew 22 They are clothed by the Holy Spirit, the living waters, with truth. They see the death they create by their corrupted minds and give it ALL up to have a new mind, the mind of Christ; demonstrated by the obedience they possess that springs out of love. Matthew 16:25 They understand what they are giving up and what they are gaining. They hunger and thirst for righteousness; now more than ever as the life-giving spirit draws close. These are the peacemakers; the sons of God to be revealed. Matthew 5:6,9, Romans 8:14-19

These who have the oil of truth, the living waters, are on their journey to meet with the Bridegroom as their souls are being knit to His, and thus to eat of the Tree of Life.

They have passed through the refining fire. Even now it smolders burning the residue of the fallen flesh they have forsaken for garments of immortality. They have bought and sold, not with the world, but with Christ Himself, the true Teacher of Righteousness. Revelation 3:18 They sought for the One, the Spirit beyond all images and words, and found a love so pure. John 5:39-40 They’ve been chiseled, crafted, shaped, pruned and suffered in the flesh as it burned away. John 15:2, 1 Peter 4:1

They are moving ever closer to the union they seek with the One they’ve come to know and love. They hear His voice. They follow His lead. His words and faith have been sown into their souls. They know without the union of oneness with their Lord, they are nothing and can do nothing. They have been marked by their Father; sealed by His Spirit. They know the Father and the Father knows them for their relationship and life are their testimony. John 17:3

As they come to feast and dine with Christ, they will start to bloom and reveal the magnificent glory of Christ. They will shine His peace, radiant His love, honor, loving-kindness, abide in His Sabbath rest, and expand their territory. They will become fields of wheat … protected in the true sanctuary of their Father in whom they trust.

All those who desire to come to eternal life must pass through the fire, the flaming sword of truth that destroys all that is not of the purest love.

Mark 9:49 For everyone will be seasoned with fire, and every sacrifice will be seasoned with salt.

Revelation 1:16 He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.

Revelation 2:16 Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.

Revelation 19:15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

2 Thessalonians 1:7-8 and to give  you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Why Christ Died?

Why Christ Died?

God forgave in the Old Testament because forgiveness is a characteristic of love and God is love. So … why did Christ die?

2 Chronicles 7:14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Christ died to remove the need for forgiveness.

In the sanctified human vessel of Jesus, God entered human flesh to reconcile His creation back to Himself. For there to be reconciliation, unrighteousness had to be destroyed because God is holy. By infusing His powerful spirit of truth and love into this earth through Christ; in time that spirit would destroy the lies, the sin, thus death WITHIN mankind leaving righteousness to reign. 2 Corinthians 5:19

By becoming one of us, God entered the pit, darkness, sin, death, this flesh world and He infused His spirit of light here, as a root, to be resurrected in us in the end days. Romans 5:10 Isaiah 53:2 This resurrection of His Spirit IN mankind would bring in His eternal reign of righteousness by transforming mankind’s souls. As long as any reign is external people will stray, the reign has to be on the inside, this is what God did through Christ. Jesus Christ physically resurrecting 2000 years ago was a testimony of His powerful resurrection to occur in mankind when His spirit resurrects many in the end days. John 6:40, Romans 5:12-21, 2 Peter 1:19

As Christ spirit grows in us; we become holy creations living righteously. Romans 5:17 Thus righteousness begins to be established in the earth.

This union of our spirit and Christ’s spirit is the marriage of us and Christ. The consummation of the marriage occurs as Christ enters our spirit and places His seed of light is us that grows in us into eternal creations. Proverbs 4:18 As with a human marriage, which is consummated by the joining of the male and female, so we are married to Christ when His Spirit infuses ours and a new spirit is born in us. This is in part why we receive a new name, because we have a new spirit. Matthew 16:17-18, Revelation 2:17 When He starts bringing us to life by infusing our spirit with His, then we have eternal life for the corrupted spirit in us drys up as His spirit of righteousness grows within us. His spirit destroys all sin, takes over, and governs our souls for eternity. Thus, we are one with Him for eternity. John 17:3, 17, 21-22

The Holy Spirit has been here since the physical resurrection of Christ Jesus to prepare us to be unified to Christ’s Spirit. This is why He is our teacher to teach us all things. 1 John 2:27 Christ is at the door. Rev 3:20 Those who answer the knocking and embrace Christ’s spirit are those who sought God in truth and spirit, were taught by the Holy Spirit, and went through the death of their corrupted spirit so they could receive a new spirit. Matthew 22:14, Revelation 12:11 They have a true fear of God and follow Him alone, versus, following the commandments of mankind/religion. Proverbs 19:23, Isaiah 29:13 By the Holy Spirit, they’ve been prepared with the spirit of wisdom to be joined with Christ’s spirit. John 6:45 Their growth begins the establishment of Christ’s kingdom on earth; a kingdom that comes from within out. Matthew 13:31, 1 Corinthians 15:22-24 They are the peacemakers, as Christ’s spirit joined to theirs makes peace in them and around them. Matthew 5:9

Because Christ is coming within us; He is coming as a thief to many. Revelation 3:3, 16:15 But to the elect, first fruits, He isn’t a thief for they are experiencing this union within them that is changing everything. 1 Thess 5:4 They are increasing in righteousness, love, honor, kindness, thus peace and rest in these days of mounting tribulation for others. 2 Thess 1:7-8, Proverbs 15:24 But as the elect continue to grow, the spirit of Christ in the earth will be undeniable. In the coming days, it will be made known who is filled with Christ and who isn’t as His spirit will show itself mighty in the souls joining to Him. 1 Corinthians 4:5,Matthew 7:22, Matthew 25:32-33

Christ died and resurrected to bring a fallen mankind back to God because of His love for us. To understand the purpose of His life is to understand the mystery of the gospel of eternal life. Romans 16:25 This is why if you are looking on the outside for Christ’s return at this time, you are looking in the wrong place.
