Veiling of Spiritual Laws

Veiling of Spiritual Laws

To abide in peace, loving kindness, wisdom, power, freedom, joy, rest, love and all of the purest of your desires, which is the presence of God, isn’t rocket science but it’s a perfect science. It’s a science of spiritual laws based on a foundation of loving kindness; because their Creator is love.

Creation is crafted in incredible wisdom; which is obvious with even the simplest observation. This wisdom is made up of various types of laws; like physical and spiritual laws.

Spiritual laws are what we, the spirits, operate by to function perfectly. If we understand and live by them, we do well. If we don’t live by them, we don’t do well. This is why seeking this wisdom of the Creator is essential to all else. Proverbs 4:7 If you continually go against the law of gravity by jumping off of buildings, you are going to continue to get hurt. If you constantly go against the spiritual laws, like kindness without hypocrisy, you are going to continue to get hurt.

The problem is the spiritual laws have been masked by lies and thus not discernible by many.

Veil Over Spiritual Laws

The reason the spiritual laws are hidden to most people is because the laws have been covered in lies; a false truth presenting itself as truth. Most people are only aware of the lie covering the truth, and not the truth. Thus lies abound.

A false truth that claims to produce a certain end but it does not is a lie. A truth that does produce what it promises is a spiritual law. Proverbs 10:22  Lies promise the things of the spirit (peace, joy, love, etc) and yet never fully deliver. Truths promise these and do deliver. Thus, there are two contrary groups of thought around concepts; one of lies and one of truth.

Lies and truth influence our minds because they influence the source we draw wisdom from. There are two places we can seek for wisdom; the mass consciousness of man (mankind’s wisdom) or the pure consciousness of God (our Heavenly Father’s wisdom). James 3:15-17  Only seeking from God’s wisdom will we abide in pure truth; because mankind’s wisdom has been over-runned by lies. Think of these two places as two clouds, or air masses, of thought. Like air, wisdom exists but you don’t see it, you only see the results of it like a tree blowing in the wind.

If you control the awareness and understanding of the spiritual laws; you control the spirits abiding by those laws.

This is why spiritual laws continue to be covered in lies.

Because a lying spirit, Satan, seduced mankind to stray from truth, lies formed within the individual consciousness of man, which automatically feeds the mass consciousness. Romans 5:12 This is how lies spread; people holding lies as truth feed and withdraw from the mass consciousness, thus infecting everyone. If truth is not known, the lies can’t be detected. Some lies may be revealed for what they are, but as long as people are drawing upon this one source they will always abide in lies to some degree.

This is the domain Satan, the lying spirit, reigns. This is why he is referred to the prince of the air. Ephesians 2:2 This is how the world is under his sway, because most only interact with the mass consciousness by learning, seeking and gaining wisdom only from it and not the pure consciousness/God’s wisdom. 1 John 5:19

How Does a Lying Spirit Reign?

A lie generates when someone wants to gain a certain result and misleads someone to get what they want. Once the lie is received by another, it’s manifested in the mass consciousness. The more people believe in a specific lie the stronger it grows. Thus some lies abound and others stay small within the mass consciousness.

Some unknowingly manipulate the mass consciousness for evil, and others purposely manipulate it by the thoughts they put into it. This is the essence of “fear-based” news, advertising, TV, movies, media, magazines, various institutions, corrupted governments and religions, certain programs, organizations, schools, etc. These entities purposely influence the mass consciousness for certain purposes; money, power, fame, status, control, etc.

For example take advertising. A desirable image, like a beautiful woman, is attached to a concept, product or service. The ad suggests that if you embrace what they are selling you will have the desired image the woman projects. This is manipulating and influencing the mass thought of mankind to act in certain ways. This is one example of thousands on how people are manipulated by this mass consciousness. To stop interacting and succumbing our mind to all these manipulation sources is to “come out of the world.”

This mass consciousness among many things is full of empty images that keep people bound to certain lifestyles causing them pain. The lie posing as truth keeps them bound to being and feeding the source of the things that cause pain and suffering in their lives. It’s a place of contrived images that tell people who they are, who others are, who God is, what to pursue, what is success, what is valued, what is desired, and so on. It’s used to oppress, control and manipulate people for all kinds of evil purposes. It’s a very corrupted spiritual realm of thought, in which most people interact with all day long. This dynamic of the mind being shrouded in lies creates the prison, the darkness, the pit.

To operate in accordance to the spiritual laws, one has to willing unplug from the world’s wisdom by seeking the pure wisdom of God.

Placebo of Religion vs. True Belief

Placebo of Religion vs. True Belief

 

John 3:15-16 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

What does it mean for a soul to believe in Christ Jesus?

If you knew there was a treasure in your backyard that would solve all your problems and give you all you desire, what would your response be?

If someone told you that if you took a pill and it would bring perfect health to your body, but you wouldn’t see the affects until you die, what would your response be?

In the first scenario, you would go digging and seeking, wouldn’t you? In the second, you wouldn’t give it a second thought because what would health matter once you were dead?

The Bible tells us of the first scenario, if we truly believe in Christ (the Word of life, truth) then we will have abundant everlasting life. God will make our paths smooth, defeat our enemies, deliver us, heal us, and give us the mind of Christ. To abide in truth, which is love, is a powerful reality. There are MANY beautiful and powerful promises for those who truly trust in God. What’s our response to those powerful words? Do we see most people diligently seeking to know the truth and to discover the paths of life while forfeiting all else to find that priceless treasure? Matthew 13:45-46 Do we see people living out those promises of rest, peace, and rejoicing in all truth?

Placebo of Religion

Do people truly believe in Christ? Or a religion built around the Bible and an image of God? What do people’s actions reveal? James 2:19, 26 One is the true treasure, the other a placebo. A person’s actions testify to their beliefs. Most believe steadfastly in a religion, which crafts an image around God and what it means to be a godly person, while the treasure hunt for truth is largely neglected. 2 Timothy 4:3 Why the blindness when it comes to what it means to believe in Christ? James 2:19  People cling to religion; not Christ, which is a huge difference, yet this difference seems to go mostly unnoticed.

The path of life is narrow and few find it. Matthew 7:13-14 Communing directly with God and learning to hear His voice and obey leads to the path of life. Seems easy, but in a world of lies, it’s much harder than it appears, this is why few do it. A corrupted self-will governed by lies keep people blind from seeing the truth. It keeps them imprisoned by focusing on the wrong things and not the right ones. In deception, you don’t know you are deceived, that is the whole point. To satisfy the longing in their hearts for God, many people have mistakenly fallen for the placebo; they took the pill of religion. It comes to them as the way to God (and an easy way – Satan knows us well); just follow what someone tells you to do and think, instead of learning of God yourself.  However, we reap what we sow. If we reap religion, empty promises await. If we reap righteousness and the presence of God that is what we experience. Hosea 10:12 What a glorious treasure to really dwell in the heart of God’s love.

The pill of religion is a dead end, literally. It’s the most damaging of situations, because people think it leads to life, but it doesn’t, thus they are worse off than before. When you think you’ve found, you stop seeking and the doors that would’ve led you to truth have been blocked. Further, the closer a religion is to the truth the more compelling and imprisoning. Yet, this falsity of religion goes unnoticed because the “testifying results of the truth” have been removed until you die and go to “heaven”; when only then are you righteous, only then do you have abundant life, and only then are you free from suffering and pain. When the results of the belief are removed, how do you know it’s the right belief? The Apostle Paul spoke of results. He talked of the kingdom of heaven within us and what that meant for our lives, right now.

Paul spoke about growing in righteousness. 1 Peter 1:2, 15 If we weren’t, then he said our beliefs were in vain, thus null and void. 1 Corin 15:2 When someone truly believes something it affects him/her to the core. If people believed in Christ and the paths of life, their lives and this world would be totally transformed because true life would be here. 2 Timothy 2:19 Conversely, religion makes excuses to make nil the proof of spiritual health. Suffering and afflictions are accepted as a way of life, not the death Christ delivers us from. When the “testifying results” are removed people can’t see it for the lie that it is. Thus, everything around them remains cloaked in death. Without the contrast of true life no one is the wiser.

God is in us and we in God if we are being transformed glory unto glory. 2 Corin 3:18 When we experience increasing peace, rest, loving kindness, joy, mercy, wisdom, and gentleness beyond ourselves and from our core, then we are growing in truth, in Christ. Then we believe. Do you see His growing righteous love in your soul that is a true transformation and not a forced self-will of goodness cloaked in hypocrisy? Have you received Christ’s testimony; His life of abundant grace, power, and transformation? John 3:33

People believe money brings about certain freedoms, necessities, and blessings in this life. They sacrifice, strive, effort, work and give much of their life to gain money to provide for themselves and their family. They believe money is what they need to get want they need, and their actions reflect that belief.

Do people believe in God like that? Do people give their lives to know Him in truth and spirit as He is, and desire above all to walk in His ways?  Conversely, most find it easier to trust in other things other than God and very difficult to trust in God. As for God, they’ve boxed Him out of their lives by religion.

True belief in God is stifled in a world of lies. When we are imprisoned in darkness how do we see the light? How do we break free from the web of lies in our minds and know the truth of God in all purity, which we truly hunger for?  You’ve seen that darkness in others; you’ve experienced it for yourself. What hope do we have for this world; if so few find the narrow way?

AMAZING HOPE, thanks to the grace poured out to us in Christ in these days. The ability to truly believe comes by the power of God’s spirit in us … which I’ll address next time, God willing.
