They say that serendipity is having an experience that you believe you may have had before. I say that serendipity is having a soul that has visited this world numerous times, and knows it inside out. I say this because that is the feeling that I have every time I visit the United States. I feel that it was home at some point in time. I know that we are not supposed to believe in reincarnation, so I cannot tell my priest about this, but I cannot help but talk about it to other souls who have similar feelings.
One day when I was in New York City, I saw someone I had not seen in a long time. As we were chatting I noticed that she had a crown on the top of her head. Only I could see it, as I was looking at her through spiritual eyes. I asked about her crown and learned from her that when Satan is trying to blind you, he forces you to use your spiritual eyes so that you won't notice that you're losing sight in your physical eyes. He had been coming to me everyday and berating me for using my physical eyes. He did not want me to see the aura which is part of the physical body, or the changes that occur as one progresses from a new Christian, to a more mature Christian, to someone who has become unstoppable.
I know that in one of my past visits to the earth I must have been a Hindu because I seem to be very familiar with the aura and learned a lot from just watching, without having to study it. In a new Christian, it is black in color, especially if they have lived a sinful life according to our standards. It gradually begins to change color and becomes like a rainbow with many colors. In more mature Christians, it is milk white. When someone has become unstoppable, it becomes unchangeable. You cannot force it to turn to a different hue.
I recall seeing a crown on the head of one of my relatives as we were growing up. I paid no attention to it until my cousins and I had our spiritual eyes opened by a neighbor, and they also noticed it. We thought it was because she was such a "goody two shoes" that God had given her the crown. We didn't tell her that we could see it, and we always assumed that she knew it was there. It never occurred to us that she never would have gone to a witch doctor to have her spiritual eyes opened. She still sees only what God has enabled her to see, having never succumbed to the temptation to want to see more.
I wish I had had more of an opportunity to discuss spiritual things with her, and to understand her views about God. As I read her Blogs, I see a depth and a passion that I never knew existed. I had seen only the surface of who she was. Now I see that all of the incidents that occurred as we were growing up, that seemed to have no reference point, were all pieces of a puzzle that has now come together. She was indeed a "goody two shoes" but not just in outward actions, in her inner convictions also.
She would never have wanted us to tell her that she was wearing a crown because she always wanted to blend in with everyone and not stand out. She needed to know that her family was one and that she was no different from any of us. We however knew that she was different, not just because of the crown, but because of the light that surrounded her. Back then the light was many different colors. I imagine that it was symbolically similar to Joseph's coat of many colors which we read about in Genesis 37:3 (KJV). Now, however, it is milk white and unchanging, except for an occasional blue tint that can be seen around the world. I have asked others and they too see it.
When I think of the transfiguration of Jesus, I imagine that he looked as she now looks, and that he expects us all to look like her, to be permanently transfigured. When all has been said and done, she will have become God's woman of revelation not only to this planet, but to all the planets in this universe. The Lord God of the universe, El Elohim, the Father who art in heaven, reigns. To God be the glory. Amen nine times.
(The 9 Amens are a reference to El Elohim because 9 is the number of El Elohim, 12 is the number of El Shaddai, and 6 is the number of Jesus of Nazareth).
God Almighty is a God of fruitfulness. God Almighty is a God of multiplication. God Almighty is a God of abundance. God Almighty will never be satisfied until all of his children learn the universal laws that lead to multiplication, fruitfulness and abundance. God Almighty will never have half the world living in squalor, another forty percent living in mediocrity, and ten percent living in luxury. God will have his entire kingdom adorned in precious gems, and every member of his kingdom wearing gold, precious gems and sparkling diamonds.
The kingdom of God will never be like the kingdom of this world in which the people of God must beg and borrow to survive for one day, when Satan's people have their rents and mortgages prepaid for a year. The squalor I speak of exists even in the king's palace, because of the devastation they have visited on our finances and on our investments. I know, however, that because my God is alive, because he reigns eternally, and because he knows only love, it is only a matter of time before the night will end and the day will dawn. Hallelujah.
The Lord God Almighty knows all the ways in which the devil has sought to corrupt God's creation. The Lord God Almighty also knows that the devil is on his last breath. Nothing in all creation can prevent the Lord from rescuing his creation from the hands of the devil. Nor can anything in all creation prevent the Lord from taking control of the earth for one thousand years.
Even if all of China were to fall into the hands of Satan, the Lord God Almighty will still reign. Even if all of Israel were to fall into the hands of Satan, the Lord God Almighty will still reign. Even if all of the United States of America were to fall into the hands of Satan, the Lord God Almighty will still reign. And even if the entire globe, except for two million people, were to fall into the hands of Satan, the Lord God Almighty will still reign.
The Lord's millennial reign was etched in stone on Calvary's cross. The Lord's millennial reign was etched on marble when he ascended into heaven. And the Lord's millennial reign was etched in eternity when the Holy Spirit descended on his twelve apostles in an upper room in Jerusalem. Nothing in all creation can prevent the Lord's millennial.
The Lord God Almighty will never forget the ones whose cries caused him to descend on Mount Sinai. The Lord knows that there are some who will never bow the knee to Satan. It is they who must be rescued. And it is them for whom the Lord will reign. The Lord hopes that others who may have bowed the knee to Satan will seek refuge in him when he returns. They will have forfeited the kingdom of God and all of its benefits, nonetheless, they will have an opportunity to face destiny at the final judgment. They will either be reprimanded, punished, or will die as sinners (the second death of the soul).
No one has ever experienced a death of the soul, and nor should anyone presume to think that it is a quick and painless process. We should assume the worst, because it is Satan who has designed the second death. What a tragedy it will be to have served Satan for five or ten years, only to experience death at his instigation. The tortures he visited upon the people of God do not compare to what he has reserved for the end, because he assumed he would rule the earth for eternity, and that the dead would be the people of God. Not only was he sadly mistaken, but also he was sadly deceived in his thinking that evil and depravity could create a world as beautiful as this.
Anytime we unilaterally assume that we know the end result, we should assume that we are wrong. We cannot see into the future for a reason--we will assume that what we see is what will happen. We are not privy to the myriad circumstances that could cause a change in outlook. Satan assumed he could see into the future, yet he missed the cross. He also assumed that when the millennial reign began, it would be his reign. He may still be spreading that false rumor.
All the world will see and witness God's power when he returns in his glory. God Almighty reigns, Amen.
When one thinks of ageing, one immediately thinks of an older person, perhaps someone over 40. But ageing happens from the moment we are born. A newborn baby has a perfect liver which gradually begins to deteriorate as he or she gets older. Unless we choose to remain an infant, we will have aged significantly by the time we arrive at age 20. When we arrive at age 40, our bones begin to show tiny cracks. And, by the time we reach age 60, we are infirm.
For me, ageing imperceptibly is growing older without showing any cracks and dents. I would like to arrive at age 20 with my liver and spleen intact, and with my heart in the same condition as when I was a newborn infant. That is the world we will have when Jesus arrives. His kingdom will be one in which no one ages, and everyone grows physically younger everyday. I look forward to stopping the ageing process at age 25. I also look forward to seeing people I know growing younger and younger everyday. When the kingdom is a thousand years old, hopefully we all will still look as if we were 25.
Universal law is the law that governs the functioning of the universe. When the universes were created, universal law already existed. When God called land out of the sea, that land was governed by universal law. When he formed man from the dust of the earth, humans became subject to universal law. When he formed the second Adam in the womb of Mary, she no longer was subject to universal law. That is because perfection was in her womb.
Universal law is governed by several principles, one of which is destiny. Destiny states that there is nothing that happens that is not caused. It also states that the cause is never what we imagine it to be because the cause may have occurred light years ago. The cause may also have benefited numerous people, or negatively affected numerous people over the course of several generations. You may be one of several people to have benefited or been harmed. You also may be the only person who can solve the problem, if harm was caused. If a benefit occurred, you may be the last person to receive it.
If an event occurs anywhere in the world, the spirits responsible for the cause are generally the ones affected. An event that is negative may have a broader effect than one that is positive. When events occur that seem to have no root cause, the cause may be hidden in a previous generation. Even when the cause appears to be clear, there may be additional causal events that are unseen. Additionally, there may be events that contribute to the causes.
A listing of all potential causal events would be unduly complex. They also would be encyclopedic in content. However, some of the main causes for major events will be listed so that we can begin to take back control of our world. First, famine is one of the most catastrophic events. It occurs when the ether in the area of the famine has been contaminated with poisonous substances. Such substances can include ethereal fluid that is leaked from the body when someone has been heavily radiated. The fluid blocks the smooth flow of nutritional energy into the affected area. Anger also can block the flow of nutritional energy into a city, a state or a household.
A second devastating event is a flood. Floods occur when the ether in an area is full of tears. It may seem simplistic to suggest that trauma in an area that results in tears can cause flooding. However, the ethereal body is very closely aligned with the ether in the atmosphere. Flooding in the body caused by overwhelming emotion produces a similar reaction in the ether. A third devastating event is volcanic activity. This is caused when the people in the area have a desire for self-governance that does not align with spiritual law. The volcanic action unplugs the ether so as to resume its smooth flow.
A fourth devastating event is economic ruin. It may take the form of bankruptcy, stock market crashes, or similar events. These occur as a result of greed and impenitence. The greed and impenitence may be original to the person or to the area, relevant to family and other relationships, or fabricated. When greed and impenitence is fabricated, it usually is done by experts in universal law who use computer and other technology to create the fabrication for the purpose of destroying a nation, a city or a person.
For example, the negative energy of greed and impenitence was placed in the ether above Greece, presumably for the purpose of destroying the nation economically. The same ether exists over much of Africa and the Caribbean. This generally is done for the purpose of thwarting the works of God and promoting the works of Satan. The ether over China was changed in or about 1986 so as to achieve the opposite effect, and it matches the ether over Israel. The ether over the United States of America already had been changed, but prayer and fasting caused it to revert back to its original state.
A fifth devastating event is plague and illness which results from greed that enslaves a people. The corrupting effect of the slavery poisons the consumers of the produced product or service. A sixth and final devastating event is wasting which results from an inability to feel gratitude. Whatever is accumulated is quickly scattered. This too can be fabricated to achieve the result.
The God of Creation
Winters in Saudi Arabia are relatively mild compared to winters in Switzerland and other neighboring countries. They are mild because a long time ago, the Lord God decreed that when the people's hearts have warmeDfourtheir God, their atmosphere will reflect that warmth. That is not to suggest that the people of Switzerland have lived lives that are ungodly, but that they have not yet warmed in the context of their relationship with God. There was a time when God's people had a steaming hot relationship with him. When he called they answered and when they called he responded. That was before the flood, when everyone assumed that life would proceed as they had planned.
After the flood, and during the ensuing years, the relationship with God and his people cooled significantly. They wanted to know why he had allowed the flood to occur, but received no answers. Thus, the spirits of those who had passed remained on the land and caused contamination because of their acrimony. The greater the acrimony, the deeper and more entrenched was the contamination. The atmosphere began to cool in different parts of the globe, depending on the extent of the acrimony.
When the Lord God directed Noah to a new land, that land was in Egypt. Egypt was not surrounded by negative ether, as was most other countries, because the entrance to heaven is over Egypt. It was through Egypt that the Lord came whenever he visited the earth. Thus, whenever the Lord needed to keep watch, or to have greater access to his people, he sent them to Egypt.
Egypt does not experience winter because Noah and his family lived in Egypt prior to the flood. Whatever acrimony existed as a result of the flood was overwhelmed by Noah's gratitude for his family's safety. However, the lands north of Egypt began to experience severe winters. Other lands became desert wastelands, not because of acrimony, but because of indifference to the things of God. They lived life by their standards and ignored spiritual principles. They also profaned God's name.
This was all done in the spirit realm because in those days, God allowed the spirits to remain in the land after they had passed. When the spirit remains in the land, the land is protected because the spirit blocks spirit invaders. When the spirit is not in the land, invaders have free access. When God realized that the spirits had acrimony in their hearts that was causing the land to become defiled, he set up a place in heaven where the spirits could go to become cleansed.
The place was located in the ocean, between heaven and hell. The spirits either went to the top part or the bottom part, depending on whether they were destined for heaven or for hell. If they were destined for hell, there were two layers to which they could go, the first hell and the second hell. If they were destined for heaven, there were two layers to which they could go, the first heaven and the second heaven. After the fall of man, Satan initiated this division so that he could be certain of who was with him.
After the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus, God created a third heaven for all those who had received the indwelling Holy Spirit of God. Satan did the same for all those who had received his spirit. He also directed that anyone who wanted to go to a deeper level of hell should be free to do so. God responded by insisting that there be a way out of hell for anyone who wished to leave. A highway was created through hell so that anyone who wished to leave could leave. The highway led from each of the seven layers of hell into the arms of God.
If anyone desires to leave hell or to release their connection to any of the seven layers of hell, they simply would need to first receive the indwelling Holy Spirit, dive downward in the spirit realm as quickly as possible, and continue soaring downward while searching for the light that would take them out of hell. When they see the light, moving quickly toward it catapults them out of hell. Not many people know of the existence of this highway, but it is available for travel at any time of the night or day. You will know that you have successfully exited hell and destroyed all of its connections to you if the Holy Spirit encircles you on the seventh, eighth, or ninth dive out of hell.
All the world will know our God when the bells of all the churches begin to ring to announce his coming; when they ring, we will know that he is ready for the rapture. Will you be ready for the rapture? Will you be ready for his appearance? Will you be ready to enter into the kingdom of God? You know that you are ready when your head has a crown of righteousness, your heart is white, and your feet are fitted with gold shoes. You know you will be raptured when the Lord changes your name.
Satan can never change your name because he does not have the authority to do so. However, a human being can fool you into thinking that God has changed your name, if you listen to them in your head instead of in your heart. Your new name will be in your heart only. When God changes your name, it is because he has had assigned you a position in his kingdom. Your new name will tell you who you are and what you are to do.
Your new name will also tell you your position in the hierarchy of his kingdom. The highest position is for the new Adam, Jesus of Nazareth, the next highest position is for the wife of El Elohim, and the third highest position is for Peter. Peter will evangelize the world and will continue the process that the churches started. He will ensure that every corner of the globe knows their God. He also will ensure that every corner of the globe understands what it takes to enter into the kingdom of God.
Many are called, but few are chosen. Many are called but few are willing to do what it takes to enter into God's kingdom. The few who are chosen are the ones who have decided that nothing else matters. They have decided that the kingdom of God is everything the world is seeking and has everything their hearts desire. When the trumpet call sounds, they will be the last to be raptured, but the first in the kingdom hierarchy. At the conclusion of Jesus' millennial reign, individuals will have become well schooled in universal law concepts, instead of on church dogma, and will know exactly what to do when their world begins to malfunction.
Salman bin Abdulaziz
We thought you should stop and consider your responses during this past week prior to reading the article by tomorrow's guest contributor. So, take this day to fast and pray if you wish, make some decisions about your relationship with God, then prepare for tomorrow's article.
Life in the physical realm mirrors life in the spirit realm. They are mirror images, only one of which is real. Most of us believe that the physical realm is real, and the spirit realm is unreal, but the opposite is true. Only the spirit realm is real, and everything we see with our natural eyes, hear with our natural ears, and touch with our hands is unreal.
They are unreal because they are not tethered to eternity, and therefore, they begin a downward trek toward complete disintegration at the moment they are created. Our human spirit, and everything in the spirit realm, is tethered to God's eternity. These are the only parts of our existence that have no ending. When we awaken to that reality, we will awaken to who we truly are and who our God is.
Life as a spiritual being is full of joy, of peace, and of love. When we reorient our focus, God is in the mirror. Our image will begin to reflect his image, and our likeness will begin to reflect his likeness. We begin to know that we and God can become one. We begin to know the one true God. And our world will begin to mirror heaven. God Almighty reigns, Amen.
An escalator takes you from the bottom to the top. If you want to go from the top to the bottom, you can also use an escalator. Similarly, the powers that God has given us can be used to draw us closer to him, or to separate us from him. It is we who must decide whether we will use our God-given powers to go up or to go down. If we use our powers to go down to the depths of hell, we should know that hell has no remedy for the ills that plague humanity. Hell's goal is to destroy humanity. So when we use our godly powers to go down to the depths of hell, we should know that we are plotting against ourselves, with hell as our partner in crime.
All of God's people, whether or not they know they are God's people, have a mission from God which he put on their hearts when they were conceived. That mission is to help restore the earth to its rightful owners--the human race. Instead of fulfilling our mission, every day we relinquish another plot of land, another church, another government, and another soul to Satan. We are on an escalator that has not stopped going downward since we got onto it in the Garden of Eden. It is time to get off the escalator and find the one that will take us back to our starting point, so that the essence of who we are can be revealed.
The world is full of hatred, anger and bigotry, and all of us are the problem instead of the solution. We assume that if our neighbors were more kind, more loyal, more compassionate, or more devoted to the Scriptures the world would be different. We never consider that our neighbors are having the same thoughts about us. They too want our world to be different, and they too want different neighbors. Our world would be different when the longing for change motivates us to begin the process of change.
We can begin the process by speaking to our neighbor about the things they see in us which they believe should change. Our joint desire for a changed world can become the catalyst. When the focus of change is on us, the world begins to release all of the negative connections we have made by virtue of the critical thoughts and attitudes we directed to each other. These are the connections that darken our world and create a matrix of hate. It is on these connections that demonic spirits and evil spirits reside when they enter the earth realm. These are the connections that must dissolve in order for God's light to exist in our world. These are the connections that must dissolve if we are to be set free as he intends we should be.
When the Lord God returns to live in the earth, the Scriptures state that he will be the light of the world. We no longer will be living in darkness, as we currently are. I always had assumed that the transformation of our world would be automatic, and that sinfulness would abruptly end when the Lord returns. I now know that this is wishful thinking, and that even after the Lord returns, men and women will continue in their depravity and rebellion. Only gradually will the transformation take place. The Lord will return at midnight, at the height of the rebellion, and the day will gradually dawn as the sun rises.
The day will dawn only as we commit to living in conformity with universal spiritual principles, and only as we long for the light of day. If we are content to live in darkness, the day will never arrive, and the darkness will continue for all one thousand years of Jesus' millennial reign. Mornings naturally and effortlessly follow evenings in each day's cycle, but in the realm of spiritual law, we must desire the morning in order for it to arrive. Not only must we desire it, we also must actively embrace it. Every new flicker of light must be coached into becoming a flame. And every flame must become a consuming fire, intent on devouring every deed of darkness.
When the fire of the Holy Spirit begins to consume every deed of darkness, only then will we be able to say that the Lord God Almighty has become the light of the world. For now, we each can decide the extent to which we will allow the Holy Spirit to light our path. We can choose to have him consume the darkness that exists in every corner of our being, or we can confine him to a tiny room in a far corner. A glance at our ethereal body will reveal the truth about our commitment to light, or lack thereof.
In the context of our relationship with God, the Scriptures state that we know that we have come to love him if we obey his commands. His commands reveal the path to light. They tell us what causes darkness to reign, and what turns on the light in our hearts. They also tell us what brings joy to our world. Finally, they tell us what will break Satan's hold on our world. They are like the yellow brick road that leads to eternity. Follow the yellow brick road, being certain to take every turn it reveals, and by God's will, with much prayer, we will see you in eternity. In Jesus' name, Amen.
A long time ago, I thought about what it would mean if El Shaddai the Lord God Almighty returned in my lifetime. I did not draw any distinction between Jesus and El Shaddai. I thought of them as one entity, and one being, but Jesus and El Shaddai are different. El Shaddai is the Lord God Creator of all the universes, and Jesus is the Lord God of our world. He is the one who will return, the Son of God, the one who came to earth and paid the penalty for all the sins of this world. He is our redeemer, and he will redeem every universe and every planet.
Sinfulness exists on this earth, but the violations of spiritual law exist in every universe and on every planet. Not every universe has a devil, because there is only one devil named Satan, and he currently resides in our world. So, while there may be violations of spiritual law in other universes and on other planets, those universes and planets are not subject to the same bombardment as is the earth.
The earth is one of many earths that have existed, and our universe is one of many that have been subject to the devil. He has succeeded in destroying every other earth, because every other earth has succumbed to him. They believed his lies, became contaminated beyond relief, and were destroyed.
This earth also became contaminated, but the Lord God Almighty found one man named Noah in whom he could place his trust. Eight people survived and the remainder of the earth was destroyed. God again experienced another problematic situation with the Israelites. He thought he might need to release them from their contract with him, and begin again with another group of people. But because of Moses, and forty years of cleansing in the desert, he again was able to rescue the situation.
We are now at a crossroad, a point at which we can grow in gratitude for our Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, and for the men and women who have fought to save humanity from its certain fate, or we can individually and independently release them from their commitment to us. Either we will win or Satan will win, because the battle for control of the earth is between us and Satan, not between us and God.
God Almighty reigns in all the universes and he will continue to reign. The people of the earth who choose Satan are the only ones who will have lost. God wants us all to win this battle, but he cannot force us to win a battle that we are intent on losing, nor can he force us to live a life that is compliant with the spiritual laws of the universe. He can offer to assist us in regaining control of our world, which is what he has done. Amen.
Whether you want to accomplish a goal, achieve a milestone, or receive an answer to prayer, God Almighty needs to hear you and the ether also needs to hear you. The ether is the atmosphere that fills and surrounds the planet and is different from the ether on other planets, and in other universes. When you speak in whispers, neither God, nor the planet, nor the universe can hear you.
God hears you when the prayer is filled with positive emotions. The planet hears you when what you think or speak is filled with any emotion, and the universe hears you when what you think or speak is filled with the emotion of love. Wanting God to hear you and insisting that he hear you are very different. God hears you when the ether hears you. The ether has heard you when you can feel it vibrate in response to the words you speak. In Jesus' name, amen.
The Lord God Almighty never loses a battle. He wins even when no one thinks he will win. The reason for his success is that he relies entirely on his Supreme Holy Spirit. When his Holy Spirit says "stop" he stops, and when he says "go" he goes. God recognizes that his Spirit is all knowing and all seeing, and is the part of him that is invincible. If it were not for his Spirit, he would have no power. It is his Spirit, his absolute submission to the Spirit, his recognition of its Supreme power and authority, and his infallible faith in the authority of heaven that empowers him.
God's power is our power. When we receive his Holy Spirit, we have available to us the same power and authority of God. That power increases exponentially when we submit to the wisdom of the Holy Spirit of God. To the degree that we progressively submit, our powers will continue to increase. To the degree that we institute reforms in our way of thinking, we progressively become like God. We have in God the proof that his way works, and we have in Jesus its power to destroy death's hold on us. When God's way has been tested and tried, we can then begin to implement innovative solutions to unique problems. Until then, we should continue in learning mode.
There are two principles that govern the universe and by which God determines how we should be judged. They are love and compassion; love for God and compassion toward fellow human beings. When we face the final judgment at the end of the age, those are the two principles by which God will judge us. Love for God means obeying his precepts; compassion means treating others as we would want them to treat us. These are basic but very powerful principles by which anyone, regardless of their religion or spiritual condition, can live.
That all of life can be summed up by two basic principles is alarming. It signifies that our most basic condition that accounts for most of the problems we are experiencing is a lack of love for God, and a lack of regard for fellow human beings. It is a global emergency of massive proportions, one that must be remedied in order for our society to survive long term. The foundation for change was established two thousand years ago when Jesus died on Calvary and later resurrected. When God returns to establish his kingdom, he will teach us the building code and the process of construction that guarantees eternal life.
Working smart is preferable to working hard. When you work smart, God is an integral part of the work experience, but when you work hard, you are consumed by the process without any consciousness of God. A consciousness of God is a recognition that when God is the architect of your plans, the structure of what you build is infinitely more sustainable, becomes incorruptible, and is likely to be indestructible. You will build a monument.
In contrast, working without a consciousness of God ensures that at a later point in time, you will be forced to rebuild. You either will need to make repairs, make adjustments, or embark on an entire restoration. The pyramids of Egypt were built with a consciousness of God; our institutions, including churches, have been built with a partial consciousness of God. They have begun to disintegrate.
The year 2017 will test the quality of man's work. He will know whether or not he has built with a consciousness of God. He will discover that building with a partial consciousness of God is not the same as building with God. He will know that God never accepts joint endeavors. He always is the sole architect, and he always is the builder.
Ageing is something that seems to happen naturally to everyone from the moment of birth. At first, you crave getting older and becoming more mature, but as time goes by, you question "Why?" and wonder what harm could exist in allowing everyone to stop counting, and to stop ageing when they arrive at age twenty-five. Of course, I am well past twenty-five, yet I still recall the clear, smooth facial features and the firm jaw that I boasted at that age. But ageing is not what we think it is, and nor is it inevitable. It is a reversible consequence of spiritual tarnish.
When we arrive at a point in time that appears to require a few nips and tucks, many of us succumb to the fear of ageing. We either accept the fillers to plump out the features, or we surrender to the surgeon's vision of beauty. We succumb only because we have viewed the ageing process as an inevitable downhill process that increases in momentum with each new year. If that is your perspective, God wants you to know that he has locked into your DNA and into your psyche the vision of you at age twenty-five. When your spirit is fully cleansed and fully revived, the you that will emerge will be the you at age twenty-five. That may seem incredible and perhaps unbelievable, but at the very least you can wait and see.
Waiting for God may seem like a long and futile engagement. We want to experience instant change and God rarely, if ever, acts in accordance with our timeline or our agenda. In this instance, there is danger in failing to wait on God's timing. When you undergo plastic surgery, not only is the physical body damaged, but the spirit also is compromised and continues to heal long after the body has healed. The body's energy system remains in a depleted condition for as long as it takes to heal body, soul and spirit. Thus, unless you are in urgent need of immediate, life-saving surgery for a life-threatening condition, God's message to you is to wait.

Thinking about eternity is not something that I do very often. It is one of those concepts that requires a tremendous amount of faith and belief in God. It also requires an understanding of who God is and intended us to be--men and women of eternity. I use the term eternity not quite fathoming its breadth and depth, but knowing without a doubt that it is the only term that describes who we are. Not only is it a singular term of reference for a singular concept, but also, it has a singular existence because there is only one eternity.
When I think of eternity, my only frame of reference is an apple seed, or any other type of seed, even a human seed. A seed is planted, grows into its natural nature, produces more seeds which again grow into their natural nature. My instincts tell me that this is not God's concept of eternity. I am more inclined to think that God's concept of eternity never stops and starts because there is no death, as would occur in the case of a seed that is planted. There is only unending life, and unending joy, peace and love. There is life, and life, and life as one entity or being. There is eternity.
Our world was destined for eternity, but when it reached or arrived at the intersection of faith, we took the left turn instead of the right. We chose death and missed eternity's crossroad. We chose pain and missed the balm of Gilead. We chose anger and missed the peace of God. We also chose collision, and spurned God's call for unity. When God reversed course, we again took the wheel and pointed our world once again down death's dark road. We spurned eternity's call. And now, his third and final attempt is again being spurned. Will you miss eternity?
All around the globe there is death and dying, yet humanity spurns the call of God. Humanity knows no power on earth that is able to right its many wrongs, nor any power whose wisdom can prevail even in its darkest hour, nor any power for which the price of wisdom is anything you choose, and any amount you will. Humanity nonetheless continues on its death-defying race toward collision. It can be stopped but its conductor is a woman who knows naught about the things of God, or so they say when their hearts are not engaged. But when their hearts are enticed, they sing her praises to their desks and chairs. They cannot bear the thought that God, a man, would choose a female as his leading lady.
What calls to us in the darkest hour of need is that God's unrelenting love is all we see. He waits with open arms for one more soul to leave the path of sin and join him in eternity. He welcomes every wayward traveler, and bids them leave behind their cloak of shame; he welcomes all who crave eternity.

Sin and its consequences are two of the most devastating problems being experienced globally. God created us to live in perpetuity and to eventually become one with him. Instead of living in accordance with spiritual law so as to heed the call of spirit, we instead have profaned the name of God, speaking to his enemies as if they were God. When we speak to God's enemies as if they were God, we denigrate the power of our spirit which he gave us. We place ourselves and our world on a collision course.
We cannot ever become one with the enemies of God because we and they are of different worlds. We were created in perpetuity, to live in an eternity, while he, their god knows only death and dying. Our spirits are naturally repulsed by death and dying, yet many claim him as their god. Our world is not of his world; and if we force our world to move in the direction of his world, they must collide, with our world being the shattered one. We must choose either the world of which we are naturally an offshoot, and with which we can blend and become one, or the world that will destroy us. I choose eternity.
