Many Mansions

1qogQh1438270823

What do you think when you think of what this passage could mean. Could it mean Jesus was telling man that God lived in a mansion? A large house in the sky? And in Gods mansion there were lots of rooms?  So, could that passage have a different meaning? Lets see.

 Here are some meanings for the word ‘mansion. A ‘residence’ and a residence is a place to ‘reside’ in. Now the meaning for ‘reside’ is interesting as it means,

existing  in something as a permanent and inseparable element ’

What exist in man, that is

‘permanent and  is an inseparable element?

His Consciousness, because mans Consciousness  is

‘permanent and inseparable’ from him.

Then does that mean that what is ‘existing’ in us that we call God, is really our Consciousness, and in this Consciousness there are many ‘rooms’?

Rooms like, love, hate, sin, sickness, joy, sadness and ‘room’ like wisdom, or understanding, to name a few of many ‘rooms’? Yes it could mean that, because ALL things do take place in some part, some ‘room’ in our Consciousness.

Man can know nothing without  his Consciousness.

Think, isn’t it Consciousness  that exist in us?

Is it also not true that there are ‘many mansions, many rooms, many areas within Consciousness?

And is it not true that without Consciousness we have no body, no reality at all,  because it is only Consciousness that tells you anything, so without your Consciousness telling you have a body, or a world,  you do not have anything.

Was that what these Bible passages are trying to tell us? That we are not in or of our body, but that we, in reality exist in and as Consciousness?

Is this Bible passage saying

Consciousness is God?

What else could it mean? Certainly not that there is some God sitting in some mansion, some big house waiting for man to come to him.

How could man come to God, if he is already IN God?

Can man get out of God? Out of Consciousness?

And it is true

w

Yes, we do ‘exist’ in and of Consciousness.

So, how do you understand what many ‘mansions’ means?

 The word ‘many’ tells you…there is more than just this earthy ‘room’ we are now in.

Is it possible that one of the ‘rooms’ is our earthly experience?

If it is, then we can WALK OUT of  that ‘room’ and enter another one.

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.

Wisdom

htY9PE1434571234

‘Wisdom is the principal thing’

Principal means, ‘most important.’

Why is ‘wisdom’ the most important thing for me to get?

Lets find out.

Wisdom is, ‘knowledge,’ and ‘knowledge’ is  ‘good judgment.

If wisdom is ‘good judgment,’ that  would mean if I am ‘judging’ anyone or anything other than good… I am not using my ‘wisdom,’ my ‘knowledge’ or my ‘good judgment.’

Wisdom being ‘knowledge, and ‘knowledge’  is, ‘interruption,’ which means to,‘clarify the meaning’.

That means whenever I am judging anyone or anything as not good…
I should use my ‘wisdom’ my ‘knowledge,’ which means I have to ‘re-interrupt’ what I’m judging as not good.

How, by ‘clarifying the meaning,’ of what I’m judging.
Clarify means, ‘free of impurities.’

Since ‘impure’ means, ‘mixing,’ that tells me, I have to use my ‘wisdom’ my ‘knowledge’ and my ‘good judgment’ and take time to rid my mind of mixing good and bad thoughts.

And I can because ‘wisdom’ also means the
‘ability to apply, to use what you have acquired mentally.’

And since ‘wisdom’ is a ‘ mental grasp,’ which means the
‘ability to think and act utilizing knowledge, and understanding ‘
I then can ‘interrupt’ my mental grasp’ and judge with my ‘wisdom’ that it is true, that

So…
I will not ‘judge’ the appearances of good and bad. Instead, I will use my ‘wisdom and knowledge of God, and I will

Am I A Person

th - Copy (3)

Am I a real ‘person?

My ‘belief’ is…I am a ‘person.’ BUT… a ‘belief’ is only a ‘mental act?

Do I ‘understand’ what that means? Or will I just let it slide away as it seems silly.

Maybe that’s why I have been told

e03fa10d9eeb2b6c289e1d99767088f8

Will my ‘understanding’ show me that as a ‘person’ I am really a ‘mental act?

Do I ‘understand, ‘mental’ means ‘thinking’ and ‘act’ is also ‘thinking?

So am I only ‘thinking’… I’m a real ‘person?

Do I ‘understand’ a meaning for ‘person’ is a ‘guise?

AND…   a ‘guise’ is a  ‘false appearance.’

Does that mean I,  as a ‘person’ am a  ‘false appearance’ and am not real?

And is that why I have been told

26353

I ask again…is that what I am to  ‘understand?

And if  I am not to judge by my body, what am I to judge by?

Is it I’m NOT to  believe I am a ‘person…just because the ‘appearance’ says I am?

Maybe

29192 

Is that what I am to ‘understand?

That the ‘appearance’ of me as a ‘person’ is NOT me?

And that I should not be deceived, by my ‘appearance’ as a person?

But  wait, as a ‘person’ I do believe I am something real. BUT…if ‘believe’ is to ‘assume,’ then I am only ‘assuming’ I am real, based on my ‘beliefs,’ which are composed of my ‘mental acts.’ My ‘thinking.’

AM I REAL?

As a ‘person’ I have a physical body, which is made up of ‘matter, ‘ so yes, I must be a real ‘person.’

BUT

Do I ‘understand’ what physical matter is? Do I?

Physical matter is comprised of and is….

‘The actual substance of  THOUGHT.

Does that mean, that as a ‘physical person’…the real me is a THOUGHT?…

A ‘mental act’ taking place in my mind?

I’m really confused .

Am I ‘understanding’ what it is I am to  UNDERSTAND?

I really do want to ‘understand.’

 BUT HOW?

b91a1b5aece3acb209c8623c04dc38e5

Am I sleeping?  Am I  dead?

If I’m ‘sleeping’ then I’m not being ‘aware.’

  If ‘dead’ means, dull’ and if ‘dull is, ‘slow to understand,’ maybe I am ‘dead, ‘ and it is time to ‘wake up’ and ‘be aware.’

BUT….’aware of what?

How about ‘aware’ of what the Bible is really saying.

  How about  being ‘aware’ that its  time for ME…  to  UNDERSTAND.    

Again, what am I to ‘understand?

Do I need to UNDERSTAND  that as a ‘person’ I DO NOT EXIST.

And why don’t I as a ‘person’ exist?

Because my ‘appearance ‘ that I’m a ‘person’ is deceiving me.

Do I need to UNDERSTAND…the ‘person’ I think I am….is only a MENTAL ACT.  MY….THINKING

IS THAT WHAT I AM TO UNDERSTAND?

I AM A MENTAL ACT. I AM MY THINKING?

I’m still so confused. What shall I do now?

Quotation-Jesus-Christ-bible-truth-Meetville-Quotes-214796

Yes, I have read this…BUT… do I ‘understand’ it?

Do I UNDERSTAND

Free is ‘not subjected to the laws of physical necessity.’

Free is to ‘be enjoyed without limitations; unrestricted, not obstructed,

Free is ‘not united or combined with anything else;

Free is ‘separated and unattached;

Free is to ‘rid of that which confines, and limits.’

Am I to ‘understand’ that I can, by UNDERSTANDING,  be ‘free’ of the ‘person’ I think is me?

And then what happens to ‘me?

Will I FINALLY UNDERSTAND

9499106844_772146d1fd_z

AND

NOT IN MY BODY AS A PERSON

Is that why I am told

222

AND…once I get my UNDERSTANDING

I will have the WISDOM to UNDERSTAND

90634add54b4bfab5e1d329d5b8ed137

And not in my body as a ‘person’ but IN my Spirit.

Will my UNDERSTANDING prove

Eric Schon, a molecular biologist at New York’s Columbia University, believes the creation of cloned babies could be two to five years away. “If it can be done, it will be done,” he said. “The moment it could be done in sheep and mice and cows, it was only a matter of time for human cloning.”

The ‘US’ the Creators used a part of man to make another one. Sounds  like ‘cloning’ to me.

Something to at least think about. Why?

Because God is suppose to be ‘ONE’

Not    ‘US’    and not   ‘OUR’

Is it possible…..Could it be….

Temple

345421170165b294f92f9c5bdaad3250

Your body is not you, nor yours.

960442451b640830abf0ef3257861ef0

That says, your body is God’s Temple that holds the Spirit of God.

Do you know what the  ‘spirit’ is?

3350206064_1a313a136e_z

Jesus said, ’Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.’

That means God is IN your body and God IS your body.

‘God is  in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. ‘

That saying clearly says, your ‘body’ is Gods body.

‘You are not in the flesh, you are in the spirit.’
Spirit is defined as an inner intelligent life force.’

The real ‘you’ is not your fleshly body. The  spirit,  within you,  is the real you and is your life, and not any parts of your fleshly body. Are you believing your body made of ‘flesh’ is you?

‘It is the spirit that quicken, the flesh does nothing.’  Quicken means,‘ ‘to make become alive.’

cc93e21e7761d804e34e1487f41b28fa

Do you worship your body as the ‘temple’ of God, or do you worship your body as something separate and apart from God?
Is your ‘temple, your body’ aging, diseased, in pain, too fat, too thin, ect, ect?

If so, then so is God, since He is the body.
God is the real body, not your fleshly body.

Close your eyes as you listen.

Awake

VieMB1473272547.jpg

What was Paul really saying when he wrote this?

The present reading of the Bible has been translated so many times that you can not be sure it means what the words really are to mean. Also because words have many different meanings.

When the Bible writings were translated, it is likely the translator chose his personal meaning for certain words, meanings that could have been different than Paul’s.

For example, awake is to, ‘be aware.’ Did Paul want his followers to be ‘aware’ of something? If so, what?

When Paul speaks of someone sleeping, was he referring to someone asleep in a bed or did he really mean he wanted the followers to be ‘aware’? Possibly, because sleep means, ‘not being aware.’

When Paul said, ‘arise‘, what did he mean since ‘arise’ can mean to, ‘notice.’ Not just getting up from sleep, but to actually ‘notice’ something. If Paul meant for the people to ‘notice’ something, what was it?

And when Paul wrote to ‘wake the dead‘, was he speaking of those buried in the ground? Maybe not because the word ‘dead’ also has different meanings, one of which is ‘not being aware.’ Could that have the word he originally used? Most likely because it follows in line with the other words meanings.

When Paul spoke of ‘light‘, what did he mean? If a meaning for ‘light’ is, ‘understanding,’ did Paul originally use the word ‘understanding?

Was that the meaning Paul had in his mind before his words were changed during one of the many translations over the centuries?

If the word ‘understanding’ is, ‘personal interpretation,’ then Paul may have been saying find your own ‘understanding’ of the truth of God and not someone else’s. And where would you find your own personal interpretations?It should always be your own ‘personal interpretation’ of what words mean…to you. The world forgets as it reads the Bible, they are reading the ‘personal interpretations‘ of someone else.

Let the true meanings come from within YOU.

Try reading a sentence from your Bible and then use a dictionary and find the words you want to better understand and you, choose a meaning that makes the passage have clear meaning, because most Bible passages are not as clear as they could be. You will surely be surprised.

All Knowing

 465035874_640

If you ask for anything today, right as you are asking , you are saying and believing God is NOT being ‘all knowing’.

So think, is God really ‘all knowing’ or not. For if He is, then He is ‘knowing‘ all about you. Now.

And if you needed anything then…

e.Luke12.32

And if you don’t have what you ‘think’ you need, and since God is not giving it to you, then maybe its not what God ‘thinks’ you need.

No matter what it is, you ‘think’ you need.

Including, health, wealth, home, love or any of the human needs, just know…

Any ‘need’ you think you ‘need,’ is just another way to keep your mind off God and on the ‘need’ instead.’

Think about that.

So….Is Your God All Knowing? Or not?

Bible Giants

There were Giants in the earth in those days.”

Found in the Bible you are told stories regarding the Anakim and their “degenerated” offspring called the children of Anakh. ANAKIMS were the people of ANAK , an ancestor of the Anakim, a tribe of Giants.

Throughout the  Bible you find many stories of Giants. So if you believe the Bible, then you believe in Giants.

 ‘And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.’

  ‘Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, the people are greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there’.

  ‘For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man’. This bed is 6 feet wide, 14 feet long and King Og’s height is estimated at least 12 feet.

  A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Anak.”

Joshua 14; Judges i. 20; and Numbers 33 – The Hebrew spies said they were mere grass-hoppers in comparison with these giants’

Throughout the Bible you find Giants. So if you believe the Bible, then you believe in Giants. Think about that.

 

Were there Giants in the ancient times? Well if you believe the Bible, then you believe in Giant

Either you believe your  or you don’t.

If you don’t believe the Bible, your proof is found in ancient remains of Giants, remains found literally all over the world.
