From Impossible to Possible

From Impossible to Possible to Fulfill

‘And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with ALL your mind, and with all your strength.’  This is the first commandment. “And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

Mark 12:30-31

Simple law; yet impossible to fulfill … on our own.

Impossible Law

Somehow, we give a sigh of relief when we realize the only commandments God asks of us is these two above. They seem so simple. Yet these are completely impossible to fulfill on our own.

Foremost, we are limited beings in our understanding; and true love, which is acting in the very best manner for everyone in any given situation, can only come from an all-knowing being who knows all the interworkings of a situation and the ripple affects of every action.

Made Possible

The only way to truly love is to be all-knowing. Then, you know the perfect thought, word and act in every situation. We aren’t all-knowing, but have a Father who is, who is now bringing forth children who are apart of His wisdom, which comes from being all-knowing. So though we aren’t all-knowing, we can receive the wisdom from an all-knowing source. So in any situation though we aren’t all-knowing, we are a part of the One who is and have access to His wisdom. When we act in accordance to His wisdom, then all we do is done in perfect love. Because of the depth of connection He is creating between us and Him; His wisdom becomes our own, this is gaining the mind of Christ.

Receiving the Wisdom of God

Thoughts are always arising in our minds; either from within ourselves or received from the outside. Each time a new thought comes into our awareness there is a choice to make of how to respond to that thought. We can ignore it, put it away from later (ex: an errand to do later), analyze it, worry or obsess about it, or act on it.

What determines how we perceive an incoming thought, whether of ourselves or from the outside, is based on the framework of understanding we hold that entails all our beliefs about what is true and what isn’t. The more truth (versus lies) we have, the more we receive and understand each thought as we should and thus respond to it in a loving response. Truth is love.

When our frameworks of understanding, thus our perceptions, are being established in truth, then incoming thoughts are assessed by that truth we are gaining. For example, God has been teaching me the nature of true love. In that learning process, if I had the idea to give a gift to someone; His spirit causes me to reflect: Did that desire come out of true kindness or something else as an obligation, guilt, or hypocritical kindness,? This reflection is part of the learning process.

As we learn what makes up true love, those principles become our truths by which we naturally function. As for giving, we learn there is only one motive in which to give, out of loving kindness. All other motives create harmful ripple effects to the giver and receiver.  Thus, once we have this truth, then all thoughts are assessed by it. This process is part of us gaining the framework of truths that create loving responses. We learn love by what creates love and what doesn’t. As we learn each principle, they become our truth that we start to naturally act upon, our wisdom.

To truly learn love, we need the desire to be truly loving without hypocrisy, thus a pure motive of loving kindness. When we have this desire, God will lead us away from hypocrisy as He implants the truths we need to love in sincerity. Romans 12:9

As we seek to know the truth, then our heavenly Father starts crafting frameworks established in truth in our minds, which cause our perceptions to be in love. As we start to be connected to and a part of the source of love, loving kindness starts to govern us.

For those who have sought the true heavenly Father in spirit and truth, they are becoming united to His spirit. This is the return of Christ, the Kingdom of heaven coming within us, becoming a new creation, gaining the mind of Christ. Their mind is being crafted in and by His truth, thus they are becoming His truth and a part of His divine nature. When you live in His truth you become as He is. 1 John 3:2 His nature; peace, loving kindness, mercy, righteousness, justice, holiness, joy, power, mercy, forgiveness, compassionate, long suffering, and so on are the fruit of His truth played out in His wisdom in our lives. 1 Corin 2:16, 1 Corin 1:30 All these characteristics in summation equates to love.

When we start becoming a part of the true nature of love and desire it to increase in our lives; then all our choices are made in line with that end. We are always growing deeper into true loving kindness, thus all the aspects and ways of our heavenly Father. Matthew 5:48

When we seek for our truth to be established by God, the wisdom of God becomes a part of us. When we “look” at ourselves and see Christ in us and His nature becoming our nature, then we know we are a part of Him. John 13:35, John 14:23 When we act on His wisdom in us that is a part of us, we are fulfilling those two commandments as God wills and intends. John 15:10

Here Comes the Son

Here Comes the Son

 I woke to “Here Comes the Sun” in my head; and rightly so …

as obedience to truth sets you free and manifests the Son in you.

 He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions. Psalm 107:20

Not man-made commands, religious rules, formalities, or protocols, … anything external, but the words of the Eternal Father spoken to your individual heart is what sets you free from the pit of death and the prison of your mind. All of which, Christ made possible. It’s His spirit speaking to your spirit words of life; as they are words infused with His spirit and His faith. When His words are heard and received, spirit to spirit, then obedience is possible and exponentially powerful because of the love exudes.  He is speaking; are you listening?  Jeremiah 11:7-8, 9:13-14 When you listen within, for that is where the Father speaks to you, He gives YOU the truths that YOU need to be free.

A personal reflection  …

The other day, I saw a “funk” rising on the horizon of my soul. It’s like a dark cloud that manifests various thoughts contrary to peace, truth, and love. I’ve learned it’s the sensation of a battle rising in my mind as God is bringing in a glorious truth to reveal and dislodge a lie. As the truth moves in, it transcends me into a deeper level of love; thus power and freedom in my mind and soul.

Knowing what was approaching; I asked for the truth to set me free. (A very powerful prayer) And God answered …

“Seek to put on immortality; think nothing of the flesh that is quickly passing away.”

Now this may not mean much to you, because it was for me, but those words burned like fire into my soul. I heard them before, but this time they went much deeper. They burned off the muck of lies clinging to the sides of my mind causing me to act in ways contrary to the love of the Father. Because of it being the Father’s perfect revelation at the perfect time, I readily received it. I embraced it and the lie I had been serving was expelled; thus obedience.

With this truth written on my heart, I obey/live in this Truth and no longer the lie. The living/obedience to this truth is easy because of the previous truths He has assembled in me supporting it in combination with His power at work in my soul. Ephesians 1:19 See the grace in the midst of obedience? Immediately, the dark cloud dissipated and the Son rose on the horizon of my soul. Victory gained. 1 John 5:4

A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” John 14:19-21

If you ask, listen, and obey, the Father is faithful to give you the truths that shatter the prison bars of your mind. This is the process of the flesh-mind burning, being destroyed, purged, and dying, and His Divine Mind being knit to yours.

The fire of truth will season us all. 1 Corin 3:13-15. Question is do you recognize the fire; know what to seek, how to listen, and walk (obey) in that truth? Do you embrace the heat and learn the truth in love? Or do you wallow in the muck and misery of your imprisoned soul?

Obedience Tainted

The concept of obedience has been greatly tainted with various doctrines/philosophies calling to the extremes; all masking its powerful truth. When the Father is talking about obedience, He is talking about pure love; loving Him, loving you, and loving others.  All His words spoken to your spirit serve love. 2 John 1:6 AND to truly love is impossible without attachment to the Diving Mind of God for He is truth and pure truth comes from His spirit directly to yours. He is the Truth and power you need to truly love. To obey Truth is to love.

To love with the love of God is to know and abide in honor, holiness, purity, righteousness, and wisdom, which are all different angles of His love. All these characteristics we must be taught by God the true meaning of. These concepts are all deeply intertwined and cannot be separated. For those who separate these in their beliefs; for example … “yes, he is love, BUT he is just …” which is spoken to justify horrific doctrines (ie. eternal torment), they aren’t serving God, but Satan. The separation makes them not truth and thus they are the doctrines of lies and false images. Satan is the father of lies, there is no truth in him. He can’t put together these concepts because they are truth so under his doctrines they remain broken false images and counterfeits of the real thing. 1 Timothy 4:1-2 Doctrines that keep you from the power of obedience in love are not of God but of the god of this world who feigns truth.

Knowing the Father is knowing these characteristics and their concinnity. Jeremiah 9:24

Obedience Lived

Each one of us has our own network of lies that keeps us from knowing love, having love and giving love. Only the Father who knows the interworking and depth of our spirit can give us the truth we need right now; the next building block to freeing our minds. The truth builds. HE assembles the truth in you. YOU go to Him directly, listen and follow. Ask for the truth to be set free as He reveals the bondage in your life. He’ll reveal one by one, and with each transition from a lie to the truth; you step away from the pit toward the light. Psalm 107:9

Truth is truth. When we live/obey in the words of God; we become spiritually alive and our lives bear the glorious fruit of truth. John 17:3 Christ enables us to obey as He comes intimately into our soul and instills the truth and the power to live it.

The disobedience that will destroy you and keep you in the pit and prison of your mind, is a refusal to listen and obey the beautiful truths your Eternal Father is speaking to your soul to set you free and abide with Him in love. Jeremiah 13:10, 12:17, Hebrews 8:10

Obeying the truth allows Christ to manifest Himself to you, for He is truth … Here Comes the Son.
