Quick post on the Messianic pre fall restoration. The lion will lay down with the lamb. there was a time when there was no violence between animals or between men nor between men and animals. See genesis where all the animals were brought before Adam and he named them. The messiah returns dominion over the earth and the kingdoms of the earth to mankind, after Adam had given it up (instead of letting Eve catch the full impact of her transgression). This is also how we inherit sin and indeed death as well, from Adam. Thanks buddy.
Ultimately we give up dominion to the enemy. He cannot take it from us, but he can usurp it from us. “So called ruling from behind the throne”. The enemy tempts us, entices us and deceives us, he cannot blatantly take from us.
When you have righteous kings or judges over a nation then the nation can receive the full blessings of God.
But when we abdicate dominion, for example in the Kingdoms of men, the enemy can rule, through sin. Think sinful rulers etc.
This was part of what the restoration of the fall includes, that which Jesus came to restore in us. It will culminate in fruition upon his second and final return.. soon to come.
Praise the Lord Christ Jesus!
Part I Of Pride Vanity and Haughtiness
Pride/Vanity and Haughtiness. These are the fruits of a bent tree. Everything good becomes stunted in a person. They do not receive additional gifts nor cultivate existing talents, defaulting to envy. Faking becomes the same as achievement. Bad things happen to them, but they are so quick to avoid and pass on responsibility that they are blind to the understanding of cause and effect. Effect having been generated by cause or action they did. But separated by enough time to forget the linkage! This is an esoteric brahmin class (iirc) interpretation of the curse of samsara in hindu/buddhism. The wheel of reincarnation. People are blind to the karma they generate and pridefully think they can lay it on others.
A marker of spiritual growth is that this gap between cause and effect decreases. Effects come quicker/sooner relative to its cause. and your mind can build on that… and build and build. This is due to the benefits of taking responsibility for your actions, amongst other factors, like instead of being stuck on the same issue banging head on wall you ‘solve’ them and on to the next and so on. If that makes sense at all. I hope it does. Questions are welcomed. Peace.
Why is it incorrect to think of the Old Testament as being for Jews ONLY? It assumes God doesnt ‘plan’ for the future. I am happy to tell you that God is in fact omnipotent and present. His perspective spans the aeons as if it were a day and night to you and i. Of course he made the OT for the Jews, but of course he made it for those who would read it after. All of the peoples that would read it after. Wouldn’t you do the same?
This sad narrow minded perspective also assumes that the Word of God is not a living document nor a living Word. It is indeed a living word and it is such that it is relevant to each and every person, should they be open to hear.
Please stop spreading this LIE around. Its tiresome. And divisive. And probably espoused by self important individuals who want to feel special and who define themselves by excluding others. In other words, by primitive minded individuals.
Quicky summary: Scripture is clear. If someone says and thinks things contrary to this scripture, they are working for the other side, and they have no light left in them. And when they dont get what they want from mediums and spiritists or the dead, which is the best outcome coming this kind of activity in the best case. It can get much worse. And then wandering hungry and finding that no food fills them, they get angry at God. When it is they who are the ignorant one and whom engaged in such abomination. Thats God applying a beating for sure, complete with a dire warning of what will come upon you should you mess with the occult !
The Darkness Turns to Light
“19 When someone tells you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter,should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?20 Consult God’s instruction and the testimony of warning. If anyone does not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn. 21 Distressed and hungry, they will roam through the land; when they are famished, they will become enraged and, looking upward, will curse their king and their God. 22 Then they will look toward the earth and see only distress and darkness and fearful gloom, and they will be thrust into utter darkness. ”
There are more examples than just this one However this was the particular passage the Lord showed me just now and i felt an urge to post on it. But im not gonna belabor or try to professionalize the post at all. Those it is meant for will receive it.
1Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
2The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’ ”
4“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5“For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
We would learn that we could set up our own system of right and wrong, upon eating the apple. Man can be lied to, deceived, and man can be wrong and make mistakes. God is always unchanging and eternal and always just. He doesn’t make mistakes.
Man inevitably ends up with good evil and evil good and evil as good and good as evil, as Isiah said.
And bad shit happens.
You’ve probably heard of iodine pills as ‘radiation pills’ and its somewhat commonly known to take iodine to protect your thyroids from radioactive fallout. However it only protects you from the relatively short lived iodine 131.
In theory, many harmful late-cancer effects of nuclear fallout might be prevented in this way, since an excess of thyroid cancers, presumably due to radioiodine uptake, is the only proven radioisotope contamination effect after a fission accident, or from contamination by fallout from an atomic bomb (prompt radiation from the bomb also causes other cancers, such as leukemias, directly).
Taking large amounts of iodide saturates thyroid receptors and prevents uptake of most radioactive iodine-131 that may be present from fission product exposure (although it does not protect from other radioisotopes, nor from any other form of direct radiation).
The protective effect of KI lasts approximately 24 hours, so must be dosed daily until a risk of significant exposure to radioiodines from fission products no longer exists. Iodine-131 (the most common radioiodine contaminant in fallout) also decays relatively rapidly with a half-life of eight days, so that 99.95% of the original radioiodine has vanished after three months. -Wikipedia
The iodine supplement must be taken every 24 hours however. And it doesn’t protect you from other radioactive isotopes like strontium-90. Strontium-90 mimics calcium and is taken up into the bones. It has a much longer half life than 8 days! So you should take calcium supplements too.
New fission products are continually being produced and dumped into the ocean and probably the air as well. Reports of 300 tons of contaminated water are flowing into the pacific ocean. And there are reports of steam coming out of some of the burned out reactors from the still molten and cores down in the ground underneath the reactors. They melted through containment 6 years ago in 2011 and continue to melt deeper into the their corium boreholes. It is hypothesized that they are now in the ground water, sitting there, still fissioning and hot as hell no doubt. Attempts to send robots in result in failure of the electronics inside of two hours. No one knows where the cores are to date. And Tepco has even said that the technology to re-mediate and decommission the plants by retrieval of the corium and spent fuel in a pool in reactor 4. The technology doesnt exist yet! In other words they havent a clue what they are doing.
This is a global problem, and an effectively ‘forever’ one as well. Its time something is done about it, no doubt the entire global community should be involved.
Simplified of course but its true. If you dont know God, you’re almost certainly angry at him, you’ve closed the door to having knowing God on a personal level. Hence why all this push for a impersonal ‘everything is one’ new age world view/perspective. Once the door is closed, pandoras box is open. Many people have done much to damage their relationship to the point that we don’t want to hear anything about a personal God. Often it seems to happen in childhood with a ‘God why did you let that horrible thing happen to me if you’re all good?’ type question and they get angry at him and close the door. The culprit ends up being a lie they believed in that they heard in their mind.
We don’t have the mind of God, nor his perspective and so we cannot see why things are the way they are for good reason. Those that can see know that they only do so through their relationship with him. But they tend to be less vocal about their view, since its not exactly something you can speak and someone get it. Unless that is the will of the Creator.
Everyone seems to fail to take into account this, that they might be angry at God. And that is why they that dont ‘believe in God’ or relate to any of the primarily devotional scriptures. By devotion i mean devotion to personal God. And that you have that ‘non verbal’ communication coming from him not verbal in your mind. And that it is two way communication with him.
