I Am The Vine

Instead of just reading  Bible passages,  believing and accepting the handed down meanings for them, you can choose meanings that feel right for you at your present understanding.

Let it be YOUR understanding interpret the word meanings, and you will find that now, the passages do make sense.

So get a ‘dictionary, pen and paper’ and choose your own meanings for words.

So…this is my understanding of this passage.

Ask

KJV_Isaiah_45-11

Since its ‘sons’ we can assume that includes us all. We are all God’s ‘sons.’

As ‘sons’ we are told to ‘ask’ God about things that ‘concerns’ us.

Do we?

Or do we ask  of everyone else about things that concern us?If you are having needs, home, health, job, transportation, it really doesn’t matter what the need, do you ‘ask’ God to help in anyway? If so, why? Isn’t God suppose to be the all ‘knowing? So he already would know about what ‘concerns’ you.

Do you think you have to ‘ask’ for help, if HE already knows? And in most cases, even if you ‘ask’ you won’t get help. Ever wonder why?

Well just maybe you don’t understand the word ‘ask’.

So how about  ‘ask’ means to-

request information.’

Is that what you do when you need help with something that ‘concerns’ you, ‘request information?’ Or do you ‘ask’ for things, ways to get rid of your problems?

You are to ‘request information’ about things that ‘concern’ you, not  ‘ask’ for help with your problems, because…

  Information is,

knowledge  concerning a particular  circumstance.’

You want to know the truth about the ‘ particular  circumstance,’ not what the ‘circumstance’ informs you, but what God tells you.

You are going to ‘request information‘ right from God, about your ‘circumstance’. You do want the true ‘information’ about all things.

 So you begin by  saying,

11976473326_5d7d4f0d11_z-1

THEN

be-still-191

In order to know the ‘truth’  about what ‘concerns’ you,  are told to   ‘be still,’ and to ‘listen’

And you will be ‘informed’ that…  

c2d19769aca21d5b397b644eb7fbf619

And if ‘one,’ then you can not really be having problems, for God could not, and if you are ‘one with God’, then neither could you. IF you believe and understand what ‘one’ means.

One means…

Being a single entity’

Wouldn’t that mean that whatever you experience, so is God?  That is, if you and God are ‘one’ and…

 ‘being a single entity ?

Think now, if you are ‘one’ with God, who or what is  the ‘you’ with a ‘circumstance’ ?

It really doesn’t matter what the need is that ‘concerns’, you are going to God for ‘information’ about the ‘truth’ of all things. And what is the ‘truth’ of all things?

Genesis_1-31

Either this is 100% ‘true’ or it’s not.

SO

Are you going to ‘ask’ God for the

‘information

about ‘

 Being ONE ?

AND

Not about the ‘circumstances’?

the Stable

6398425535_7450f3fcea_z

       There is no room in the inn for Jesus to be born. Why?
Maybe because an ‘inn’ means a ‘public place‘. A place of the this world. An ‘inn’ is used to house the people of this world.

And even before he was born, Jesus knew he was ‘not of this world.’ The ‘inn’ was too full of handed down human beliefs for truth to be born there. So Jesus was born in a stable.

A stable is a, ’place for domestic animals.’ A meaning for ‘domestic,‘ is the ‘household.’ The family. The ‘stable’ represents the ‘household’ of God. Those who wanted to know God.

And a meaning for ‘animal is, ‘relating to the physical as distant from the spiritual.’

Jesus had to be born in a ‘stable’ because that is where the ‘domestic, the ‘house hold’ were, and since the ‘stable’ housed ‘animals, or the physical’ and since all human hood is ‘physical’ what a better place for Jesus to be born, since he came to show us, the ‘animal, the physical’ man the truth.

The ‘inn’ was full of the people who were to busy to realize that they were ‘animals.’ Thus preventing them from ever understanding God.

Yes, it’s weird, but so is all the Bible.

Knowledge

230444671_c183b3d5a4_mDo you spend a lot of time with your Bible, trying to get knowledge about God…but are never able to come to the real knowledge of the truths, so that you can prove them? Well you are not alone.

Most likely you, like most, think you have the knowledge….But do you? Because we can not know God without the real KNOWLEDGE. And what is  the ‘knowledge’ that we need in order to prove what we are told?

We first need to understand what the meaning of knowledge is.

So lets   dedective28          investigate that word .

Knowledge means, ‘knowing, facts and truths from INVESTIGATION.’

So…are the ‘facts and truths’ you know…from your own ‘investigations? Because Job was told by God, that there are those who preach to us, but they have no facts, no knowledge of the the truths they tell you.

Yes, we are told that a lot of the leaders of our religions mean well…but they do not have the knowledge…the real facts   of God or the truths about God.

Solomon told us to get away from the foolish men and women who teach us our KNOWLEDGE…IF…if they can not PROVE what they teach us…because they do not have real KNOWLEDGEif they do not PROVE it.

Does the KNOWLEDGE  you now have do you any good, other than maybe making you feel better that you are trying to know Him aright? Has any of your knowledge been able to heal you, give you a better healthier, longer, safer, loving world? And most important has your present knowledge brought you face to face with God?

3350206064_1a313a136e_m

Probably no, because Jesus tells us that the KNOWLEDGE, the facts and truths are hid WITHIN us.   Within, and are not found in this realm…Not found in  a BOOK? A MAN? A Belief? So if your KNOWLEDGE is from anyone or anything in this world, then be assured you do not have the KNOWLEDGE nor the FACTS nor the TRUTHS…at least that’s what King Solomon tells us.

So with that said…if you really want KNOWLEDGE, the FACTS and the TRUTH about God…ASK GOD. Why ask man for what does he know? Just go WITHIN and ask God personally…and you will be given the real KNOWLEDGE. The real FACTS and the real TRUTH… Straight from  GOD.

Resist Not Evil

6181428039_828440b8cf_mJesus told us NOT  To Resist Evil.  Why would anyone, NOT want to resist anything  evil? But according to Jesus…we are NOT to resist anything evil.

dedective28 Maybe its time to investigate and see what Jesus may have really been saying.

Looking at a meaning for ‘evil,‘ we find it means, ‘bad,’ which means, ‘incorrect’ which means, ‘untrue, and contrary to facts.’

5510506796_dff8c07b64_m  And according to my dictionary, ‘evil’ also means…’human ignorance.’ So was Jesus telling us that evil, the bad stuff was because of our ignorance and not according to facts?

Ignorance means, ‘lack of understanding.’ As we know, all through the Bible we are told to get understanding.

So was Jesus trying to tell us that the UNDERSTANDING the FACTS about  God would prove there is NO evil…NO bad to resist? And due to  our wisdom of things… all we know is WRONG?

And was Jesus telling us that it was pointless to resist the evil…the bad, because the only cause of it was our human ignorance, which means, ‘lack of knowledge’ …about  God? Yes we know of God…but we sure don’t UNDERSTAND Him. …AND

3458143641_22a44df4f6_m

Understand is to ‘accept as an agreed fact.’ The agreed FACT is…God is All. The agreed FACT is…God is the ONLY CAUSE The agreed FACT is… ALL GOD MADE WAS AND IS… GOOD.

 So think now… Was Jesus really saying, don’t resist any of the ‘evils, the bad’… because its untrue? And doesn’t follow the FACTS?

Probably, because the FACTS are …God created EVERYTHING… The FACT is…God was then PLEASED… And the FACT is… God called EVERYTHING VERY GOOD.     Not just Good….But VERY GOOD. Those are FACTS. Good…not bad.

That would mean…the evils…the bad…is untrue and not according to those FACTS.

To get you FACTS …go within to your Spirit  and  be rid of your human ignorance once and for all.

Righteously

26353

The Bible plainly tells me not to judge. I am not to judge anything that I see, hear, or feel. Do I?

Yes, I do judge.

I am also plainly told to ‘judge righteously.’ But how can I judge the evils of my world…righteously?   How am I to learn and do  ‘righteousness’?

The only way to learn is from others. Will it be enough if I  learn from others?   Will what I have been taught by others…be enough for me to learn my  ‘righteousness?

NOPE, it is not enough, at least according to Matthew, for he said I would need to know MORE than those who taught me.

5fZnku1435261989

Wow…according to the passage, I will not get my  ‘righteousness’, if I obey what I have taught.

Well…if I am not to follow the ways I have been taught, what am I  to do? Just how do I learn  ‘righteousness’ so I can judge righteously?

dedective28 It’s investigating time. Where’s my dictionary?

If I am to learn something, what does ‘ learn’ mean?

Oh… it means, ‘acquainted with.’

Guess that means in order for me to have my’ righteousness‘ so I can ‘judge righteously,’ I will need to be ‘acquainted’ with IT.

If acquainted means, ‘aware,’ then I will have to be...being ‘aware.’ But aware of what?

Of thinking before I judge?

‘Righteous is  ‘possessing  the source  of all cause’…And also, ‘residing in’

That means as long as I am being ‘aware’ that I  reside in  God/Consciousness… I have my ‘righteousness’.

And since God  is the first and only cause, I would have to get my  ‘righteousness’ straight from God, not man.

Daily  I must  ‘reside’ in the Consciousness of God.…all the time.

Can I?

Or will I reside in the ways of the world that I have been taught by man?

Righteousness is to be ‘pure.’

Pure  means  ‘not mixed’.

So to have ‘righteousness’, I can not be mixing my human negative judging thoughts with

Gods, all good ones.

It is my job not to  lack the  ‘pure righteous’ thoughts and not let the person, place or thing that is trying to get my attention cause me to  mix my thoughts. Mixing causes impurity.

So then if I want ‘judge righteously’, then my mouth must only be used for praise.

Praise means ‘expressing approval.’

Do I only express ‘approval’ all day long?

No. Why not if that’s what I am told to do?

gT35p61435261240

How about you?

Are you GOOD all the time by

  ‘judging righteously’

EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE?

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

Think about it.

Do You Desire Truth In Your Inner Parts

https://i1.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/59/David_SM_Maggiore.jpg/331px-David_SM_Maggiore.jpg  David asked, “Do you desire truth in you inner parts? If you do, do you even know where and what  your inner parts are?

According to David, you’ll not find your inner parts through any man. No,  David  said, man can  not find the truth that  consists of wisdom and understanding   in the land of the living...If we are to desire truth in our inner parts, where are your inner parts, if they in not in the land of the living?  If not were we are living,  then where? David told us it would be through God, that we would find the place.

What are our, inner parts?

dedective28 So as usual, with the help of the dictionary, lets see what David could have meant.First we need to understand some meanings of words.

Did David know that desire means, within reach?   And that  truth  is something that you are  able to verify and prove. And that  inner means,  pertaining to  consciousness . And did David also know  the word, parts, means,  essential.

David must have thought  that it was possible to  prove that there is a God?  Not simply  believe, but to be able to  prove, God was something real.

 Did David want you to know that you could only find a real, provable God, within your own mind?  Within the inner parts of you own Consciousness is the place for you to find the TRUTH about God? Is that what David was saying? God is  within you.

Is your God  within reach?  Can you prove  your God is real? Do you believe the truth of God is  found ‘within your inner parts? Or do you believe your religion has God? Or that you can find God in the mind of your preachers? Or in books? Or tapes?

The God you know is the God you have been taught to know.     Minister_shoutsTaught  from handed down beliefs. Beliefs you can not prove.

The the real God can only be found in your inner parts. You can not find a God within your reach, or find a God that you are able to  prove  is real, if you go anywhere, except within your own inner parts. No matter how spiritual they are.

David had wisdom and understanding that he had found within his own inner parts. The Real God?     Real, which means,  not merely supposed but is a  provable  God.

Really what good is a God if the God is not  within your own reach?  And what good is some God that you can’t  prove  is even real?

If real  means,  aware then David must have meant, are you ready to become aware  of God? Aware, which is  thinking. And the only place you can think is within your inner parts? Within your own mind.

Your journey is for you to go ‘within’ your own inner parts, your own Consciousness and find a God that you can  prove is real and within your reach... not just some god  you have been told is real.

Do you desire truth in your inner parts? If so, are you ready to drop the god of your fathers, that unknown god to whom you have ignorantly worshiped. Ignorantly because ignorant means, not aware . Can you release all that you have been taught about who and what God is and go within your own inner parts and find the TRUTH? Can you?
