Is God Omnipresent

fillstheheavens

How well do you know  God? Did you know  God is referred to as ‘omnipresent‘? At least that’s how ancient  David felt about his God. ‘Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence…’  AND  If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.’

David could not get away from his God, no matter where he went. What else could David have meant? That no matter where is was, his Consciousness was there?  Sounds like David really did believe his God was ‘omnipresent.’ Doesn’t it?

Do you believe that  God is Omnipresent? Do you know what ‘omnipresent’ means? Really means?

Maybe we should do some dedective28 investigating with the help of a dictionary.

Okay, we find a meaning for Omnipresent which means,

‘present everywhere at the same time.’

Since Omnipresent is ‘present everywhere at the same time’, that would mean God is ‘present in all places… at the same time.

3950739615_8526152bb1

If God is ‘present in all places at the same time‘…then does that mean the entire world, universe is GOD?

So….is  God ‘present in all places at the same time? Or are there places where other things are present? Does it seem strange that if God is ‘present in all places at the same time’, that there are so many horrible things going on? In those places where God is…being present fill all space?

Do you believe God is being ‘present everywhere at the same time’?  If so, why? And if so, how do you account for the ‘other things’ being present? War Image  How can God  be, ‘present everywhere at the same time,’ if there is bad existing. There is no way to make sense of God being ‘present everywhere at the same time’ and having bad there too. Why? Because God is ‘of purer eyes to behold evil.‘    Think about that.

 It doesn’t make any sense, does it? Obviously God could not be in ‘all places at the same time’ and have anything bad going on. Could HE?

bibleBut wait…Lets stop and see what the Bible has to say.

First Habakkuk said, the kingdom of God comes not with observation.’    That would mean you will never see the ‘kingdom, the world where God is‘ being present at all times.’  So stop looking out here for some unknown god to appear. Not going to happen. In my opinion. So then, were should we all look?

Right where Jesus said… ’My kingdom is NOT of this world.’ If Jesus’ world was NOT of this world, and he and his Father were one, where were they one? If not of this world?  If you believe Jesus, then you would have to believe God is NOT in this world. God is NOT ‘being present everywhere at once‘…in this world.

 So where is the Kingdom, where is the world, where is that place where God is ‘ present everywhere at the same time’? Where is a place that everything is God …Being everything?  Right where Jesus said.

eclipsegeomanblite

Jesus knew and he told us, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.’ Now think very carefully…..what do you find within you? You find Consciousness.

Is Gods kingdom, Consciousness? It well could be because God does fill all space. And so does Consciousness . And in Consciousness, God is ‘being every where at once. 

And since there are no forms in Consciousness, then God would not be seeing any evils. Again, you may find …that does make sense.

And it really does make sense of many Bible sayings, if The Kingdom of God is…..the

Higher Consciousness.genesis_l

How can you have faith in God, if you don’t know God?

There is only one thing you ever have to do…to know God…Just one.

Do you know what that one thing is?

Well in case you don’t know how to know God, I guess we better see what we can find out.

So it’s time again to dedective28 investigate things.

So, do you think it is…to go to Church?

Or do you think it is reading your Bible?

The Gospel of Judas

The  Gospel of Judas lost for nearly 1,700 years, was discovered among the Dead Sea Scrolls, in the 1970s near El Minya, Egypt It has since been restored and authenticated. Due to political environment the Church leaders had to make the New Testament represent what would best suit their needs and that is why some ancient writings were left out.

Want to see what’s in the Writings. Okay, lets dedective28    investigate things.  

The Gospel of consists of conversations between Judas and Jesus and is different from what’s taught in your Bible.  The Bible has a different Judas that is a bad guy.

. File:Giotto - Scrovegni - -31- - Kiss of Judas.jpg

The Bible tells you Judas betrayed Jesus after taking money for delivering him  to the authorities.

In the Gospel of Judas, quite different from the Bible, you are told it was Jesus himself that planned his own death and NOT Judas. You know what, when ever there is more than one opinion, how can you really know what’s true or not?

You are told that Judas, along with Mary,  was a favorite of Jesus and Jesus taught him things that he did not teach the others.  Jesus tells Judas to  “Step away from the others and I shall tell you the mysteries of the kingdom..’The Gospel  tell us that  Judas was taught by Jesus  the true meaning of his messages, the same thing he told Mary.  And in doing so,  it angered  the other disciples.  So why would Jesus chose only two of his followers to reveal his secrets?

 Judas tells you that man believes in the imperfect physical universe, as the only universe.Whereas Jesus tells of an inner realm as the only true realm. Strange the Churches    t_Preachers020      do not make the inner realm, the realm Jesus tells is the  only place that’s real, more important. Does your Church make the inner part of you , the most important thing they teach you? If not why? Pretty obvious that they would lose control if you knew the TRUTH that Jesus talked about.

Did the Religious leaders and the political men not want the mass of people to know that they did not have to be under the rule of  anyone? That by understanding that all was and is…is found within themselves, and that’s the ONLY place man ever needed to look.

Think what would happen if man did understand. He would be free of THEM. And no more monies would have to be given to the Church. The Church and its leaders who live like kings, while the church members go hungry all over the world.  It seems  the Lost Gospel writers understood what real freedom is and that’s why the Gospels were forbidden. God forbid that the Church and Government could lose the money they take from their people.

  And all the threats of the Church brain washing its people that if they didn’t do as they were told, they would be sent to hell. Take a minute to really think about what you are TOLD over and over by your religious leaders. Your religious books. If you do not do as they say you are a sinner.

Okay…. In The Gospel of Judas, you are told that Jesus said, by man believing this imperfect physical universe,  was the only one, it led to the loss of his knowledge of God and the real realm where all things exist.

 genesis_lThe Gospel of Judas tells you that Jesus was here to show that your real salvation was found only ‘within you.’ It was the only way to experience God, and was the only way to reconnect and get back within…into (heaven). Its amazing how many times Jesus states that the only place to find God and His Kingdom, is if you go ‘within you.’

Why are not the Churches stressing this point more? WHY?  And why is not anyone obeying Jesus? The disciples did not get it. Just like man today does not get it? Why/ Because like then, man is obsessed with his worldly desires.

 Judas again tells us that we can know God if only we look deep ‘within’ and as your understanding matures, you find that death is really not a bad thing. How could it be a good thing?

3950739615_8526152bb1  Because according to the writings,  your death forces you out of the imperfect physical realm and returns you to where you came from. God. Consciousness. Found only WITHIN you.

Judas writes, ‘ One day he was with his disciples in Judea, and he found them gathered together and seated in pious observance. When he  approached  his disciples, gathered together and seated and offering a prayer of thanksgiving over the bread,  he laughed.

‘The disciples said to  him , “Master, why are you laughing at  our prayer of thanksgiving? We have done what is right.” He answered and said to them,  “I am not laughing at you.  You  are not doing this because of your own will but because it is through this that your god  will be  praised.” Does your Church teach you to give a prayer of thanksgiving so your God will be pleased with you? 

 Okay, think about this. Do you give thanksgiving to God? Who taught you that’s what God wanted from you?  The Religious leaders of the world? And why would Jesus think doing so, was funnyCould it be because Jesus understood that there is NO GOD like the one the Churches teach? 

Now lets see how Jesus felt about sacrificing is the same  your religious leaders  teach you.

 Okay, this is a really good one. Jesus told Judas that the real God does not make anyone sacrifice. Anything. 

 23715-truth The dictionary defends sacrifice as , ‘offering your material possessions to a deity.’

Think now. Does God really need any of your ‘material possessions? Of course not. BUT…the Churches do. They really need and want your ‘material possessions,’ especially your money. Because it was not God who told you to tithe….Do not the religions of the world have many sacrifices you must make if you want to get to Heaven? But remember this demand was not from the real God.

Next we read,’Jesus said  to them,  “Stop sacarificing …] which you have  over the altar, since they are over your stars and your angels and have already come to their conclusion there…’

When his  disciples heard this, they each were troubled in spirit. They could not say a word. God has received your sacrifice from the hands of a priest’—that is, a minister of error. But it is the Lord, the Lord of the universe, who commands, ‘On the last day they will be put to shame.’

WOW…Stop sacrificing at your alter. The Churches alter?  God has received your sacrifice from the hands of a priest’—that is, a minister of error. A minister of error? Again I say WOW.

So if you think about that, if the religious leaders and politicians let that in the New Testament, they would no longer be able to get your sacrifices. Your money. Your time. Your anything.

The Church want you to fear God, the God in Gen.2 who demanded constantly for sacrifices?

 Last, and this just goes along with all else I have found about the ancient God.

The final words on the last page of the codex read: Gospel of Judas.His disciples said to him, “Lord, what is the great generation that is superior to us and holier than us, that is not now in these realms?” Not here on earth.

 Jesus said, “ Come , that I may teach you about  secrets no person  has ever seen. For there exists a great and boundless realm, whose extent no generation of angels has seen,  in which  there is   a  great invisible  Spirit , which no eye of an angel has ever seen, no thought of the heart has ever comprehended, and it was never called by any name.’

Well…God is invisible. And God/Consciousness is a boundless realm. And God is not found in thoughts. Prayers.  ‘No thought of the heart has ever comprehended and God was never called by any name. Who was it that has taught man that the name of God, was God?

How about this part.

“And a luminous cloud appeared there. He said, ‘Let an angel come into being as my attendant.’

   250px-Saint_Raphael A cloud comes down and “A great angel, the enlightened divine Self-Generated, emerged from the cloud. Because of him, four other angels came into being from another cloud, and they became attendants for the angelic Self-Generated…’

Were they Aliens?

The Gospel of Mary

File:Gospel of Mary.jpg

What was found with the other Gnostic Gospels, were two fragments of The Gospel of Mary. And it  came as a complete surprise to the world. And like the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Mary differs from the New Testament.

dedective28
Let’s  do some investigating and see what we  we can  find.

First we find some really good examples of the differences  between Marys  accounts of Jesus, than in the New Testament.

How about…’after Jesus told the disciples to go out and preach, they were not happy like they are in Matthew‘s account. In the Gospel of May you read, ‘…they weep, fearing for their lives.

Jesus praised her because of all the disciples, she alone  understood  his teachings and told her he would “complete her” in the mysteries of the Divine. And when Peter wanted her to leave them  because she was a woman, Jesus defended her. The men of ancient times, up to the present, believe they are somehow superior.

In the Gospel of Mary you find that Jesus tells us that it is not your sins that are the problem, it is not having  understanding . Sin is from people not understanding that God is within themselves. Man does not understand so he spends his time outside in the world and seems to love and desire earthly things more than spiritual.

https://i1.wp.com/www.publicdomainpictures.net/pictures/40000/nahled/easter-13646914423Mr.jpg

The writings tell you that Jesus said that it  was not his suffering and death that would led to the path of  eternal life.’ That’s sure not what the Church teaches.

Jesus  warns them against those who teach of spirituality as an external concept rather than as an internal one.  Well, do not the religious leaders tell you all the things you must do first, before you can find God?  Thou shall not is the theme of the religious world.  Jesus didn’t teach that.

In Mary you are told that Jesus said, the only way to salvation is to forget the deceptive world of earthy passions.

In the Mary Magdalene account of Jesus, Jesus said, “salvation is not something that comes from an external saviour,”  HIM. No, Jesus said, “One has to seek salvation within.”

mary magdalene and jesus photo: Me and my Woman jesus-mary-magdalene.jpg  You are told Mary Magdalene was the constant, close companion of Jesus. One  of the disciples speaks of how Jesus would kiss Mary Magdalene, often on the mouth. Peter said to Mary, “Sister, we know that Jesus loved you more than the rest of women.’

Then Mary wept and said to Peter, “My brother Peter, what do you think? Do you think that I thought this up myself in my heart, or that I am lying about Jesus? Levi answered and said to Peter, “Peter, you have always been hot – tempered. Now I see you contending against the woman like the adversaries. But if Jesus made her worthy, who are you indeed to reject her? Surely Jesus knows her very well. That is why He loved her more than us.

genesis_l  In Mary’s writings you find Jesus teaches them that  all things, whether material or spiritual all come from the same source.   And what is that source? The God/Consciousness within you. No Consciousness, no experience.

So….could it be that  thousands of years ago, women had a big part in the Church? And as the Rulers, not the christians, the fighting for powder men, decided they were not going to be part of the new Church?  Notice in the video, you have women at a Supper with Jesus….painted long before any one else. Leonardo da Vinci????  So….could it be that way thousands of years ago, women had a big part in the Church?

Gnostic Gospels

What are the Gnostic Gospels?

Want to investigate?    dedective28

I do.  Lets go.

The Gnostic Gospels are  a collection of thirteen ancient books containing over fifty texts  from the early centuries of the Christian era. They include a collection of early Christian gospels, known as  the  Gnostic Gospels   They were found in  Nag Hammad, Egypt in 1945. A large number of them were  thought  to be destroyed, when the leaders were putting together what would be allowed in the Bible.  Some of the Gnostic Gospels may include some traditions even older than the gospels of the New Testament.  Like the  New Testament some of the books tell of Jesus and his disciples, but there are major differences.

File:P. Oxy. 655.jpg It is believed that it was  Emperor Constantine  who decided what should be taught about Christianity.  It became a law that having the Gnostic Gospels books in you  possession was a  criminal offense. Copies of   books were burned and destroyed. Thankfully some of them were saved, possibly by a monk who hid them in a jar in a cave, about 1,600 years ago.
The first Gnostic Gospel we will look at is, The Gospel of Thomas.  https://i0.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/42/El_Evangelio_de_Tom%C3%A1s-Gospel_of_Thomas-_Codex_II_Manuscritos_de_Nag_Hammadi-The_Nag_Hammadi_manuscripts.png/600px-El_Evangelio_de_Tom%C3%A1s-Gospel_of_Thomas-_Codex_II_Manuscritos_de_Nag_Hammadi-The_Nag_Hammadi_manuscripts.png   There are a 114 verses in Thomas. Here are the ones that are not in the Bible. Most of his writings were close to the New Testament so these are not in your Bible. These answers and sayings are straight from Jesus…according to the Gospels,
Okay, the first is one of my favorites.

Jesus said, “If you bring forth what is within you, what you have will save you. If you do not have that within you, what you do not have within you [will] kill you.”

Does that mean that it is not your Church, your Bible, your anything…but it is only YOU who can bring forth God? Only YOU who can bring forth the truths?

Jesus said, “Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you…’

What did Jesus mean?  Well sight means, ‘mental perception.’ It also means, ‘to look carefully in a certain direction.’ What direction?  How about,  Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.’   You look ‘within’ your own self.

genesis_l Jesus said, “If your leaders say to you, ‘Look, the (Father’s) kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is within you and it is outside you.’

Well, do you understand? Jesus himself  basically said NOT to look to your leaders…Are they not the ones who do TELL you what’s true? To them. ‘Rather, the kingdom is within you and it is  outside you.’  The kingdom is there when you are within…thought of IT.
Jesus said to  his disciples, ‘There is light within a man of light, and he lights up the whole world. If he does not shine, he is darkness.

Light means,  ‘awareness and understanding.’ Darkness, means, ‘lacking or having very little light.’ Lacking ‘awareness and understanding.’  There is a light (awareness and understanding) within man and his light (awareness and understanding) lights the whole world. That makes sense. To know God aright, you would need ‘awareness.’ You would need  ‘understanding’

Jesus said, “I am the light that is over all things. I am all: from me all came forth, and to me all attained.   “I am the light (awareness & understanding) that is over all things. I am all: from me all came forth, and to me all is attained.’   

There is not one single thing in your world that you did not cause…by thinking it. If you do not think…you have no experience. So was that what Jesus was saying… that you do need more ‘awareness’ of what’s within you? And did Jesus want us to let go of the understanding that we   have been taught by the religious leaders, who need our money? And have put the fear of God in all the people….so to control them? Was it this understanding Jesus wanted us to know?  Jesus wanted us to only go ‘within.’

 Jesus said, “The pharisees and the scribes have taken the keys of knowledge  and hidden them. They themselves have not entered, nor have they allowed to enter those who wish to.’

There you have it. Jesus, himself is telling you that the leaders and the scribes, those men who made copies of manuscripts  ‘have taken the keys of knowledge and hidden them.‘ They knew that if men had ‘awareness and understanding,’ they would not be able to be controlled by anyone.

Jesus said, “Blessed are the solitary and elect, for you will find the kingdom. For you are from it, and to it you will return.”

Okay, was this just another way Jesus was telling you,  that you need to be alone? Because  that’s what ‘solitary’ means. Alone. Not in a Church. ‘ You can only get your understanding ‘within’ you.  And no one can come  ‘within’ you. And you can not go ‘within‘ another.

Jesus said, “Let one who has found the world, and has become wealthy, renounce the world.”And last,  Jesus said, ‘Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not die.’

The dictionary tells you that ‘interpretation’ is  to, ’to bring out.’ It also means to, ‘provide the meaning’.  Was Jesus telling us that no one but ourselves can ‘provide the meanings’ of his words? Was he telling us that it would then be YOU who must  go directly ‘within’ to God/Consciousness because God only can ‘provide the meanings’ and then YOU could   ‘bring out  the meaning….’  And…know the truth.

So did Jesus mean that each one of us must find our own interpretations? Maybe, because if you don’t know, and understand yourself, what good is it. Example, 2+2=4…you can know that, what will it help if you don’t understand why its so?
Jesus said, “I am not your teacher.’ Maybe he said that because, man is not to be taught. Man is to find TRUTH ‘within’ his own being.

Jesus said, “Have you found the beginning, then, that you are looking for the end? You see, the end will be where the beginning is. Congratulations to the one who stands at the beginning: that one will know the end and will not taste death.”

Isn’t the beginning of everything…Consciousness? God?  That’s a good one. Think about it.
Jesus said, “Congratulations to the one who came into being before coming into being. If you become my disciples and pay attention to my sayings,’

Again, Isn’t the beginning of everything…Consciousness? God?

Jesus said, “I disclose my mysteries to those  who are worthy of  my  mysteries. A mystery is something ‘unexplained.’ And ‘worthy’ is “to turn.’  Did Jesus mean that for those who would ‘turn within,’ the ‘mysteries’ would be fully ‘explained?

Jesus said, “Those who know all, but are lacking in themselves, are utterly lacking.”
Who is it that you learned about God from? Those ‘who know all? All those religious leaders?

Jesus said, “How miserable is the body that depends on a body, and how miserable is the soul that depends on these two.” Man only has to depend on the God ‘within’ his self.
Jesus said, “The heavens and the earth will roll up in your presence, and whoever is living from the living one will not see death.” Isn’t the ‘living one’ God/Consciousness?

The whole Gnostic Gospels documentary is 90 min.

The leather-bound codices found at Nag Hammadi in 1945There are 9 that make the 90 min. I will be doing the entire documentary in my next few articles, starting with video 1 & 2.  I found it easier to watch them in the short videos that I will be using.

Gods Image

” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

If I am an ‘image,’ what does that mean to me? To find out I guess I have some     dedective28  investigating to do.

Looking at the the word ‘image.’ we see one meaning is, ‘artificial representation that looks like a person. ’ Well, that’s interesting. In fact that’s that’s just plain, weird.

Going deeper, we find ‘artificial means, ‘deception‘ and deception is an, ‘optical illusion.’    Since an ‘illusion’ means, misleading impression of reality, then is that is saying that what we see with our eyes, is only an ‘artificial representation that looks like a person? Are  we be only   ‘optical illusions? Could that be true? Are we as a ‘person, nothing more than an ‘optical illusion?

Let’s keep going. ‘Artificial’ is a ‘copy,Reflection of Love: Narcissistic love. I created this image from a photo that I took of a flower in my garden. I used Microsoft Photodraw to help me to create this image.

A copy? What are we a ’copy’ of? A ‘copy’ means the ‘image in the mind.’ Is that what we really are, ‘copies of the images in our mind?

And if we are ‘artificial representations,‘ what are we a ‘representation‘ of? Well,  A ‘representation‘ is, ‘anything that is represented, such as an IMAGE, brought clearly to mind.’

Image is an, ‘idea‘ and an idea is a ‘conception existing in the mind.’ And a ‘conception’ means the ‘origin or beginning.’  Wow

consciousness photo: Consciousness Consciousness.jpgAgain, image is, ‘mental‘ and ‘mental‘ means, ‘occurring only in the mind.’ Are we an ‘image occurring only in our minds?’ Could you or I, as an ‘image’ be nothing more than a copy of our thoughts… brought clearly to our mind?

If an ‘image’ is a, ’mental representation existing in the mind only‘… Is that where we exist? In our minds? Image is an ‘idea.’ An ‘idea’ is a ‘thought.’ Is that what we really are? A ‘thought?

Since the Bible passage is, ‘So if God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them,’ we will now look at the word ‘likeness.’ Likeness means a ‘semblance’ and a ‘semblance’ is an, ‘unreal appearance.’ It is also the, ‘outward appearance, without any inner substance or reality.’ Likeness is an ‘assumed appearance.’

Okay…are we the ‘outcome’ of our thinking? Are we nothing more that an ‘assumed‘ being?

Picture of Sunrise - Free Pictures - FreeFoto.com Appearance means, ‘coming into view.’ And ‘ appearance’ means an,’outward showing.’

“And God said,Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness…’ So man was created in Gods IMAGE.

Okay...about those meanings, this is what it seems to be saying…As Gods image, we as the appearance are just an ‘artificial representation that only looks like a person? But in reality we are Gods Thoughts. We are Gods thoughts coming into view.

We can only exist as part of Gods thinking. Maybe that’s what Jesus meant when he said, ‘I and my Father/God are one.’ That would make sense if we are Gods thoughts. And we only THINK we are real….and that’s why the Bible tells you, ‘Awake thou that sleepth?

‘In the beginning God made us in his Image...’  and if so, then we began and are existing as images in Gods mind.

And when Jesus said, ‘All that the Father/ God has, you have.’ If we do exist as Gods thoughts, then yes, we would have all that is in Gods thinking…Wouldn’t we?

Very weird, I know. I’m going to have to give this a lot more thought.

Life and Death

 

So, do you think you understand life and death? If you do, what is it you believe you understand? How did you get your information to form your belief? Or, is what you understand of life and death that which you have been programmed with? Isn’t it true, your concept of life and death is the concept of what those before you understood about it? Isn’t it?

Well before you decide to stay in your prison of the beliefs of others about death, you may want to consider some different kind of thinking about life and death. You may be surprised at what you find. Or not.

Did you know you have experienced your own life and death many times since your birth? Most likely not. But you certainly have. And why is it you have chosen the beliefs you have instead of the beliefs of the non death believers? Could you, would you even want to rethink life and death and what they are, from a different view point? You never know what you can find when you decide to open your mind and do your own  dedective28      investigating into things.So lets take a deeper look at the words life and death.

Did you know the word ‘life’ means ‘to continue. And did you know the word ‘death’ means to ‘shut out.’ So what are you or anyone facing death, ‘shutting out?’ Wouldn’t your death be the ‘shutting‘ you out of this present experience?

Look at it this way. Death  has nothing to do with you dying. You are not dying, or ‘shutting out’ your God. Your Consciousness. No you are being ‘reincarnated‘ which means ‘to give another body’ of some kind. So it seems when someone dies all they are doing is ‘shutting out’ one form for another and then… continue on.‘ Could that really be possible? Yes. Yes it could and most likely is. But how?

Let’s look at some of  life and death examples…And this is…

belief photo: my belief mybelief1.gif

human embryo photo: human-embryo-and-placenta human-embryo-and-placenta_zps40e68ebc.gif

We first start ‘life’ as an tiny ’embryo.’ This is how we exist and we are completely unaware of anything other than how and where we are now existing. In our mothers womb. The womb is our entire world and we know nothing else.

Then one day everything changes. Death has come to us. Our death, as an ’embryo‘ has been ‘shut out’ and  our experience as an embryo has ended. Our entire life and everything we experienced in our embryo state is now gone. We as an embryo are gone. Where did you, the embryo go? Did you die? Has death, the ‘shutting out’ overtaken you? Surely it has for you the ’embryo’ is gone.

The death, the ’shutting out’ of the ‘embryo’  has led us into a  new body.

We have been reincarnated. Remember reincarnated means ‘to give another body. ’ Our life will now ‘continue on’ in the body of a small baby. We do not remember the death, the ‘shutting out’ of us as an ’embryo’. ‘All we now know is that we ‘continue on’ in the experience of being a little baby.

So our death, the ’shutting out’ as an ’embryo‘ was a GOOD thing. Was it not? If there was no death, no ’shutting out’  the ’embryo‘… there would be no way for us to have life, to ‘continue on’ as a baby.

Then… it happens again.

Death, the ‘shutting out’ comes to the little baby.  The death of the baby us, has ‘shut out’ the baby and once again we are reincarnated…which means ‘to give another body. ’

As the child  our life  ‘continues on’.

Then one day we again face’ life and death’. This time the death, the ’shutting out’ is of the child. With the death, the ’shutting out’ of the child we again become reincarnated, into the body of a  teen.

So with the death, the ‘shutting out’ of the child, we ‘continue on’ as a teenager.

But then we must  face death again…and ‘shut out’ the

Bu then we must face death again, and we now ‘shut out’ the teenfigma Adult Asahina Mikurufor the adult.

   And now we live, ‘continue on’  our life as an adult.

And so it goes. until our next death will ‘shut out’   the adult and we reincarnate into the body of what is called middle age.

The Youth of Old Age

But we still live, as we ‘continue on’ as a middle aged person.

Then one day we find that death of the middle aged you has been ‘shut out’ and we now find we have been reincarnated into a very old body and will live, ‘continue on’ as an old person.

Then one day death again arrives again and now we are ‘shut out’ from the very old us. We are so mourned. But to us, we  once again  will be reincarnated and find we  still live. We still  ‘continue on.’  

Nothing has changed except we have ‘shut out’ the person experience, died to it and are living, ‘continuing on’ as the same US…only with a different body of which we now are not aware of. Not yet aware because we have not yet died, have not yet ‘shut out’ the old, old us. Just like  the embryo, the baby, little child, the teen, the adult and the old person stayed unaware of what was next in their life….

UNTIL THEY WERE REINCARNATED INTO THE NEXT BODY

No matter how many times a person faces ‘life and death’, meaning, facing the ‘shutting out’ of one body experience for another, we still will always live, ‘continue on’ as the same US. Each death, each ‘shutting out’  gives  us more understanding of the actual cause of all things.  Which is, in my opinion,

 Consciousness

Which most people call God.

There is no death to fear, if we understand death to simply be the‘shutting out’ of one experience so we can move on and have our life ‘continue on’ in a new experience. And this is true no matter what age we  are when we face death. 

‘In the way of righteousness is life: and in the pathway thereof there is no death.’

’ Righteous means, ‘wise,’ and wise is ‘having knowledge or information as to facts.’

And the facts are…

There is no ‘shutting out’ Consciousness.

Why? Because there is no outside of Consciousness, also kn ow as God.

Cosmic Consciousness

 Since we can’t shut out Consciousness, God,  then we  somehow  after our death, after  our ‘shutting out’ our current body, we must still have ‘life.’ And since ’life’ is ’to continue on’ then somehow and some way we  do  ‘continue’ on. And since God/ Consciousness is all there is, then we must still have ‘life….’ And ‘continue on.’ Someway. Somewhere.

Just something to think about.

Wisdom and Understanding

File:Job and His Daughters(tempera).jpg    Ancient Job asked, ‘ But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?

Then  Job said something very weird. He wrote,  “ Wisdom and understanding, it is not found in the land of the living.’  Wow, that’s a good one.

The 4,000 year old Fresco was restored using a  laser So it would seem that is the reason ancient Paul said, “…The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.’

What do you think that means? Isn’t it from this world that you were ‘taught’ what ‘wisdom’ is? So does that mean that the ‘wisdom’ you have been taught and have believed if true, is ‘foolishness’...With God?  Foolish, because our ‘wisdom’ is of ‘this world’.  It appears that these ancient men believed in some other world?

Where then should you look for the place of, ‘wisdom and understanding? To whom will you look, if not man? If not in and of  ‘this world…Where?

Okay, when in doubt….dedective28 investigate.

Going back to Job, we find that he believed, There is a Spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth understanding.”

Any idea what he meant by the word, ‘understanding? Well how about the dictionary meaning of, ‘thoroughly familiar with.’ Well, the question is, how ‘thoroughly familiar’ are you with  your ‘spirit.’ 

Do you really want to be ‘thoroughly familiar with your ‘spirit? Your God? If so,  how willing are you to take the time to become ‘thoroughly familiar with’ your ‘spirit?  And if you do, you will need to know what the ‘Spirit Job talks about, is?

 

A meaning for ‘spirit’ is a,‘living animating force with intellectual power.’

Did you know that. I didn’t.  Isn’t that what God is, a  ‘living animating force with intellectual power.’   

‘But where shall wisdom be found….Where is the place of understanding? And Job answered his own question.  Only God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.    Not man.So maybe you should forget all you have been taught from man, and go directly to God. And where is God?

Right where Jesus told you.’ Within you.genesis_l

The ‘‘living animating force with intellectual power, within you,’ is the only thing that can and  will give you your ‘wisdom and understanding’.

Doesn’t that tell you to do as Job said, and not to be looking in ‘this world’  for your ‘wisdom understanding’?

Instead, you are told that the place of ‘understanding‘ is with the ‘spirit‘ that lives within you. And that is why you are being told that you have to go ‘within you’ for all  ‘wisdom and understanding.’ They can and are found only in the ‘spirit,’ that is ‘within you

3950739615_8526152bb1

Is it the ‘spirit within’ that you have been going to for your ‘understanding? Or do you look elsewhere? In books? Books that tell you of the writers understanding. Do you look to others…like your religion and its leaders?

Have you been looking everywhere for your ‘wisdom and understanding...and still can’t find it

Stop. LOOK WITHIN YOUR OWN SELF, the ONLY place to find anything real.

The ancient writes knew and they did their best to show you that  you cannot find true ‘understanding  anywhere in this  world and they did tell you were to get it….WITHIN.   Go ‘within‘ because there is indeed a ‘spirit within’ you, and it is only from this ‘spirit‘  that you can find  YOUR ‘wisdom and  Your understanding.

god Of Our Fathers

Lord Jesus

In ancient times, the termgod was the name given to just about everything. There was a god for rain, the sun, and the crops. Some had cows they worshiped while others had statutes made of stone. This was common practice until a few of the ancient men decided to put all the gods into one god, and put this god up in the sky.

As the centuries have passed this god became the only god. Some even believe god has a long white beard and lives on a cloud, sitting on a large throne, and watches as his creation struggles to survive.

And if you didn’t believe in THIS god, he would send you to hell, where you would forever suffer. You call that LOVE? Oh well, guess most of the world does. Today that is where most people believe him to be. In the sky, in a place called Heaven.

Once the god of our fathers was placed in heaven, man then built organized Churches, with t_Preachers020  Preachers to teach the people about God from their point of view.

This man made’ god of the fathers‘ was created with human traits of good and bad. Since man has never really known nor understood God, they could only conceive of him as something like themselves.

Mans god is the ‘god of our fathers’.  And man must go to some kind of   Church Entrance     religious structure to find his god. Or man  goes to books and tapes to find out about God. Man goes to mountain tops. He sits in dark caves. No matter where man goes, he can not find the Real God…for he is looking in the wrong place. He is learning from the wrong Source.

People then and now have not gone on a personal search to see if God is real. Why wouldn’t you want to find your own answers about the mysterious cause of all things? Unless of course, you do believe that this ‘god of your fathers,‘ you bow to and plead and beg to, is the Real God.

The ‘god of our fathers’ is a  god who never seems to hear you. What a pity people find it easier to just accept what is taught to them instead of  trying to find out if what they are accepting is true or not.

The ‘god of our fathers’ is a man made god. A god made in the image and likeness of man. Like man, this god is sometimes pleased and sometimes angry. Like man, this god sometimes wants to reward and other times to take away.

 

Here you can see how the ‘god of our fathers’ shows his LOVE for his Son.

Think, do you really believe the Real God would let this happen? For any reason?

And what good did it do? More than 2000 years later…WHAT GOOD DID IT DO? NONE.

Maybe its time for YOU to decide on the God you want to worship and adore. An All Loving, Good God. Or the ‘god of your fathers.’  The angry, mean, killing god. That may be the reason Joshua told you,  ‘Choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served…’ Or a Real God?

Zeal and Knowledge

   King Solomon told us, ‘It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way.’ Hosea told us, ‘My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.’ 

Paul said,  ‘For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.’ What  ‘zeal’ did they mean?  And what ‘knowledge’  did they think we  lacked or needed?

Paul also said,  ‘For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge.’  And he said,For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;’

Did you get your ‘knowledge’ from the Spirit? Or did you get it from a Book? Or from your Church?  No matter how you got what you call ‘knowledge,’ it is NOT real ‘knowledge…‘ if it didn’t come from the Spirit.  Oh wait…do you know where  the Spirit is? Do you know what the ‘spirit’ is? And…  do you understand what ‘knowledge’ is?

Did you ever do some investigating to find out? Or…did you read the passage and move on? Like most people do.  Come on lets see what we can find, but remember, there’s always more to a word than the simple. You must dig deep and go to the end.

dedective28 Lets find out whats going on.

First, let’s look at the word, ‘zeal.’ Wow, this is a meaning. ‘Extreme or fanatical as in a religious movement.’  

Isn’t that true? Don’t all religious movements have kind of ‘rules,’ laws,’ that you must follow. Aren’t you suppose to think like you have been taught by your church? Haven’t they convinced you THEY are the only way to God? And once convinced, do you then not have ‘zeal? From what THEY taught you?

  We have more than enough of these.

 

Solomon said, Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.’ Foolish means, ‘unwise.’ Who are the ‘unwise? You will have to decide that.  But just maybe it would be ‘wise; to  ‘forsake all you have been taught’ and do as Isaiah suggests, and…
‘ Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted.’ 

When Solomon said, ‘Go in the way of understanding,’  what did he mean? Well if he used this meaning for understanding , which is to, ‘interpret,’ could he have meant that you should ‘forsake’ the handed down meanings for words and go ‘interpret’ them from your own ‘inner being?

Now lets look at the word, ‘knowledge.‘ Knowledge’ means, ‘facts, truths from investigation.’  

 

That’s my point. YOU, have to investigate what words mean. Succeed - Free High Resolution Photo of a Dictionary Entry for the word Succeed  You have to choose and ‘interpret’ the meanings instead of just accepting the meanings your Church has chosen as the true meaning. YOU should decide and you can let God show you.

Solomon told you to  ‘….seek  (understanding)  like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures’…. then you will  find the knowledge of God.’  Proverbs 2:2-5 

Remember, ‘knowledge’ means, ‘facts and truths, (from your) investigation.’ YOUR investigation. 

Guess the message they were telling us is, forget everything you have been ‘taught’ from the ‘unwise’ and go investigate and get the real, facts and truths,  from (your)  investigation.’

YOUR investigation. 

Guess the message they were telling us is, forget everything you have been ‘taught’ from the ‘unwise’ and go investigate and get the real, facts and truths,  from (your)  investigation.’

y? Because the ‘spirit’ can ONLY be found ‘within you.’ And that ‘spirit within you’ is the only way for you to get ‘knowledge and understanding.’
