not conformed

And what did Paul mean…Be not ‘conformed’

The  word, ‘conformed’ is from two words. Con and formed.

Con, means an, ‘opinion

Opinions are a ‘prevailing  popular view.’

Opinions are abelief not founded on proof’

So all that we know of us and ‘this world’ is not based on any proofs….but is based on ‘opinions.’  Without any proof.

All  the me in  ‘this world’  knows,  is from what the popular belief is.  Is that what I want …to have my life to be ‘conformed’,  to what  this worlds opinions are, without any proof?

And the word ‘formed, is ‘the way in which a thing exists.

 Formed also means  ‘to develop in the mind.’

 That means the way in which anything in this world ‘exist    is from what was, and is  ‘formed’ in our mind.’

That tells me that the stuff that forms my  body and all forms in ‘this world’ is from my  own mind. Could that be a reason, I  should NOT conform to the beliefs and opinions of ‘this world’ …because me and my  world did not  come from ‘this world’ as is the ‘prevailing  popular  view…’   but that my world and me and my body and other forms in ‘this world’ comes from my  own mind.

Looking at the whole word, I  find ‘conformed’ means,

 to act in accord with a set of standards

Standards is ‘conforming to an established and  accepted ways.’

 It is true that I have been conforming to the popular and accepted ways of ‘this world.’ Even though I have been told

So as long as I ‘conform‘ to ‘this world’ I am agreeing and accepting to ‘conform to  accepted ways  of the ‘opinions of the prevailing and  popular  view,  that is NOT  founded on proof.’

Being ‘conformed to this world’ I cannot and do not understand that all I know about God and the world, was ‘formed in my mind, FIRST by the popular prevailing view…that is not and was not founded on proofs.

Being’ conformed to this world’, I go along with the ‘ prevailing or popular  belief’  that  I am something separate and apart from God. By ‘conforming to this world‘ I agree and accept that there is a me and a God.

Being’ conformed to this world’, I go along with the ‘ prevailing or popular  belief’  that  I am something separate and apart from God. By ‘conforming to this world‘ I agree and accept that there is a me and a God. By ‘conforming to this world’ I then do not  really believe

  

I cannot and will not know the real God, the real me,  but instead will only know this worlds belief of a God, a world and a me who ‘this world’ tells me is a body that was born, will grow old and die.    If I am not to conform to ‘this world’…what should I ‘conform’ to? Nothing, just

Transformed is  to change  the appearance or form.’

How do I change the appearances in my world?

 I can only change the appearance if I ‘renew’ my mind.

Re means back to the original place; To change the appearances of my world I have to go to the ‘original place’ everything  came from. My Own Thoughts.

Did Paul mean that we should NOT ‘agree‘ with anything we have been taught from this world?  Like who and what God is? Who and what we are?

Be transformed? Be Renewed?

What did ancient Paul mean? Guess we had better do some investigating of different words and their meanings.

Transformed. Looking at the first part, ‘trans’ we find it means, ‘outside the understanding.

SO

THINK

Was Paul saying that we should look somewhere else for our  understanding of God and our world…because the worlds understanding is wrong?

Awake

In Genesis 2:21 you read, “The LORD God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep”.

Did God ever wake Adam?    Lets do some good dedective28 and see what we can find anything that might help us understand whats going on with Adam as he sleeps.

Looking deeper into the meaning of words you can find a whole new meaning to the ancient texts. For example, the original meaning for ‘sleep’ is, ‘weak,‘ and ‘weak’ is to ‘yield’. To yield is to ‘surrender and give place to’.

To this day man still sleeps, for there is no place in the Bible where it tells you that God woke Adam. So according to the Bible, Adam is still sleeping. If so, what does man ‘surrender and give place to as he sleeps? Lets go see.

When man ‘sleeps,’ he dreams.    To ‘dream’ is to ‘indulge in daydreams’. A daydream is, ‘to fantasize’, and fantasize is, ‘the forming of mental images’. An image is a, ‘mental representation‘ of a thought.

That means that while man is sleeping, he is experiencing his ‘mental images,’ and he believes they are reality, just like any dreamer, in his dream, believing it is actually happening.

Paul must have had some understanding of that when he writes, “Awake thou that sleeps, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.’

Lets look at these words more closely. ‘Awake’ thou ‘…Looking at the word ‘awake’ you find it is defined as, ‘to bring to an awareness’. Did Paul want  man to wake so he could be aware of God? Aware of reality.

Awake thou that sleeps,” Sleep also means, ‘unaware’. Did Paul believe man is not, cannot be aware of God as he sleeps and dreams?

“Awake thou that sleeps, and arise..” How does one arise? Knowing arise means, ‘to come into notice.Notice is, to ‘become aware of.’  Was that what Paul meant, that if you will ‘arise,’ or be aware of God, then  God can then become more than some unknown god.

“Awake thou that sleeps, and arise from the dead”. Death means to, ‘exclude‘. While you are sleeping you exclude God. Is this why  Paul said to ‘awake’? Awake from his sleep so he can be aware of God? So he can experience God?

‘Awake thou that sleeps, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee ‘light’.  What do  you think that means? You’ll be given ‘light. A good meaning for’ light’ is, ‘ understanding’.

Was Paul  saying to us,   wake up from your dream and become aware of God and by doing so, you will not be excluding God. Wake up and be aware of God and you will have all the understanding of God.

The sleeping man spends his life sleeping and he dreams of   living in sin, sickness, depravity and all worldliness. He dreams of some unknown God, somewhere, but is not really sure where. Is that you?  Do you think…you see real things in your dreams?

When man does awake, Paul tells man what he should do. “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report: if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things “

You can only think on these things if you are not sleeping and dreaming…but are AWAKE. Awake and being aware of God.And not of the things of ‘this dre am world’.  A world where your dreams seem real?

Bible And Ancient Flying Machines

Many of the ancient religious books talk of a God and his battles in the sky using deadly weapons that could cause mass destruction.

Including the Bible

The Bible tells you of wars going on in the heavens. So who were the ones fighting each other and what were they in… as they fought? Why were they fighting?

FLYING MACHINES  and WARS IN HEAVEN

Example

 

The Bible tells you that brimstone’s were shot down to earth when people didn’t obey whoever was in the sky. Brimstone  means ‘to be destroyed by fire.’ Who was it shooting down the brimstone’s, or bombs? What were they shot out of? Why doesn’t the Bible scholars address these things?

“Then the Lord rained down fire and tar from heaven upon Sodom and Gomorrah  and utterly destroyed them….” Genesis 19:24.

Is It Possible

Maybe, because there are many proofs to support it. Like the ancient  religious Vedic texts like the Hindu, Rig-Veda tells you  of a God who was known as ‘“fort destroyer.” It says he traveled through the skies in a flying machine.  The flying machine had weapons capable of destroying a city.  Is that why he was called ‘fort destroyer? 

“What kind of ‘machine’ was Ezekiel talking about when he tells of a descending chariot/vehicle, and from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures and they had the form of men?

THE FORM OF MEN?????

The Bible tells of men who go up to the heaven and who come down from heaven. Where did humans stay in heaven and what did they do there?

The Bible tells you that Elijah and Elisha are talking and suddenly a bright, flying vehicle and a cavalry of bright, flying objects appear and Elijah is taken into the sky by a spinning-flying vehicle. Again, why do the religious rulers not talk of things like this?

The Bible tell you Zechariah looks up and sees four flying vehicles coming from heaven . It seems God contacts mankind in glowing, flying objects. David spoke of a cherub, and it did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. Did you not ever wonder  about the four flying vehicles.

The Bible tells you Peter also saw a craft descending from the sky. The words from which ‘chariot’ is translated mean vehicle,. What were the Chariots that flew in the sky? Remember a chariot is also known as ‘a vehicle’

Do not the churches know or do they NOT want man to understand that there are and were OTHERS with far more power than man and the church? You may be surprised if you were to do you OWN investigating into things.

Ashur_god

One of the oldest known culture from 6000 BC, the Sumerians told of beings from the stars. Think about that. Beings from the stars. Thousand of years later you have the rest of the ancient worldwide, all giving the same accounts, along with the same kind of
of beings from the sky.

So it it is curious that when the religions of the world were established they never taught nor even spoke of the UFO’S, those strange flying objects in the heavens. Odd since the writings found in the very Bible itself gives many accounts of UFO’S.

The question is, why don’t they talk about UFO’S since in the New Testament you read 38 times of things that fly around in heavens. There are 362 verses describing objects as vehicles in the Bible. There are 37 verses describing other objects as vehicles. There are 10 verses describing flying dwellings as vehicles in the Bible and refer to them as Gods dwelling place.

No matter how much one refuses to acknowledge that UFOs are real, the men who wrote the Bible certainly believed they were real things.

How can it be explained that  from very ancient times to present, all the ancient worldwide drawings and painting show the same type of beings from the sky?

How is it possible that people from all parts of the world were drawing and writing about the same kind of beings from the sky? At the same time? Go investigate and you will be amazed.

Why do the mass of people find it hard to accept that if, thousands of years ago, space travelers, aliens, were around, why they wouldn’t still be around today?

What is it that keeps the mind so closed as to  to accept?

Today as of old, man is still drawing and reporting the appearances of Aliens? If we exist, why could not others?

Deceived

 

Paul tells us,

“If a man thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.”

Am I being deceived because I do think I am a something?  A person?

Deceived  is to ‘mislead by a false appearances.’ Is my body a false appearance?

Maybe if a meaning for ‘appearance’ is, ‘outward impressions.’

Impression is ‘a perception in the mind.’ Am I only a thought in my mind?

Could that be the reason Jesus said in John 5:31

“If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.”

What could that mean?

Witness means to ‘see.’

Seems like Jesus was telling us that when we ‘see’ ourselves, what we are seeing is not true.

True means ‘ real.’

Was Jesus saying the person I think I am, is not something real. What!!!!

Well, What Else Could It Mean?

Wisdom

  There was ancient man named  King Solomon, who said, ‘ Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding.’

Job said, ‘But where shall wisdom be found  and where is this place of understanding’?

Job must have known that the man made from the dust of the earth, dust that means ‘something of no worth and who is confused’ would not be able to know how or where to look for his understanding.

So Job ends up answering his own question when he tells man that ‘wisdom and understanding… it is not’ ...Job said…’it is not found in the land of the living.’

3972355470_0846a5e446_mWhat was Job talking about? Did he believe there was some other land?   Some other world where there were no living human beings? He must have, or why would he say such a thing as’ wisdom and understanding are not found in the land of the living?’

Is there some other world? Some sort of dimension that we do not know about but Job did? Just where is the place that Job was referring to?

Great. So if we are not to find ‘wisdom and understanding’ in the ‘land of the living, our world, where then?

 

Well maybe if we do some good dedective28 investigating, then maybe we can find out where and how to get our wisdom and our understanding.

Maybe we should ask our Preacher, our Priest, or whoever teaches us, or maybe look in some books, to see if they can tell  us where to find our wisdom and  understanding?

No. No because Isaiah told us,

Job said, ‘… man is of yesterday and he knows nothing’.

Man knows, ‘nothing.‘ So there would be no point in going to him for’ wisdom and understanding.’

Job believed we and our world are nothing but ‘shadows.’  Existing in ‘areas that do not really exist.’   Is that why he told us do not go to man… because man is not a real thing…he only exist as a ‘shadow image’… in his dream realm? Dream, because Adam has yet to awaken.  At least the Bible  never said he did.

Job told us exactly where we could find our ‘wisdom and our understanding,’ He said ‘ there is a Spirit in man… A ‘spirit’ is, ‘ an intelligent animating force possessing the only real power and authority.’ According to the dictionary.

Job said it was the ‘inspiration,’ which means the ‘arousal’ of this ‘intelligent living force which gives us wisdom and understanding.’  And  ‘arousal…’ now get this…‘arousal’ means’ awakening from sleep and having conscious activity of this inner intelligence.’

As man sleeps, he dreams. Dreams consist of a’ series of mental images in thought during sleep.’ The sleeping man is living his life from his dreams. Is that what Job means?

No thland of the living’ is not the place to find our ‘wisdom and understanding’. Because...Looking at the word living, we see one of the meanings is, lifelike. Not real living, but lifelike.

Job was right wisdom and understanding cannot be found in a lifelike world. Job must have known this and that is why he warned man to’ get wisdom and understanding ‘so that he could wake up from his self induced dream and experience reality that can only be found within the inner VOID…of  Consciousness and not in some kind lifelike world of his dreams.

Adam and Eve

Could it be possible that Adam and Eve were not the first humans? You believe they are because a man named Moses, born in Egypt two thousand, four hundred and thirty-three years after the creation of Adam said they were.

If you believe the Bible, you then believe all humans are from Adam and Eve. But is that true? Well it is not true if you believe your Bible when it plainly states they were not.

.

  There it is, in the first chapter of the Bible. We do not know the names of the FIRST Man and Woman, but they were the FIRST humans created by God. If you believe your Bible.

In the same 1st chapter you are told, “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good….” And then you are told “God rested and was pleased.” This FIRST Man and Woman were not kicked out of Gods sight. No, God was ‘very pleased’ with them. So that right there tells you Adam and Eve were NOT the first creation.

.

Adam and Eve

Genesis 2 has a completely different story to tell. Many scholars now believed Moses did not write Genesis 2. In fact it is a popular belief among the scholars that there were possibly 5 different writers of Genesis.

No matter who wrote Genesis 2, that man named Adam was made from dust. A meaning for dust is, ‘something of no worth.’ Think about that. You have God and he wants to use dust, dust that has ‘no worth’ to made a man. Or Eve who was made from a rib, is telling you that she too was NOT made in Gods image and likeness. And this man, Adam and this woman Eve did not please God like the first man and woman did.

So it would seem as though there were two creators. One God who was pleased with his creation and one god that was not. And it would seem that those who believe the God of Genesis 2 are today still trying to please god. They beg, plead, promise to be good if only this God would help them. But it seems this angry God enjoys the suffering of his worthless creation. Worthless because he used dust to make man.

Do you wonder what happened to the FIRST creation of man? Or is it just easier to not even think about it and do as all the others do….worship the 2nd God? A God who created you from dust and thinks you are worthless?

One last thought… If you believe all mankind comes from Adam and Eve, what color was Adam? What color was Eve? Yellow? Black? Red? Brown? White? No matter what the color of Adam and Eve’s skin, wouldn’t all mankind be in at least the same color range? With more or less the same facial features?

So first God created a Male and Female and He was pleased with them. Then for some reason He forgets about the FIRST good Man and Woman and decides to make two more. But this time he makes a man and woman who He is NOT pleased with. If God is All Knowing, why would He make a man and woman he would stay angry with for thousands of years? Doesn’t make any sense at all.

eyes

 

WHY DID JESUS SAY

“Having eyes, see you not

Mark 8:18

What does it mean, I have eyes but I see not?

Eyes means to ‘watch closely.’

What am I to watch closely?

Eyes means ‘ attention.’

What am I to give my attention to?

Eyes means to ‘see’ and I m told I do not see correctly.

Is that because ‘see’ means to ‘perceive (things) mentally.’ Not physically.

To see correctly I must ‘give attention’ to understanding that where the things I see came from, and that is ‘mentally seen.’

Mental is ‘relating to the mind.’

To understand I do not see correctly when I see my body or when I see anything in this world, and that  is because ‘see’ is to ‘have a mental image of.’

So I must fully understand that the things I see, are only mental images.

Eyes means to ‘watch closely.’ What am I to watch closely?

My mental images.

My mental images that come from my thoughts.

So I must give my attention to my thoughts to be sure they create the mental images I want to see.

Can I…Will I

 Can You…Will You?

We will if we want to see clearly

“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”

Second God

The Angry, Hateful God

          

The First God Was A Good God

But the second God found in Genesis 2 is very different.

The Second  God

Let’s take a look at this God we are told is so good and who loves all his creation, the God we are taught to love. We go to our churches and are taught about God. We read our Bibles and are told what the passages mean, by the Church Leaders, all based on their understanding, understanding that makes no sense at all. NONE.

Slowly read the following Bible passage, as I find this statement of  ancient Paul to be very revealing, and wonder why the religions ignore it.

Ancient Paul asked, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator?  A meaning for ‘creature’ is ‘person.’ Did ancient Paul believe that the persons behind the  Religions and the Churches, are the ones who changed the truth of God into a lie?

t seems Paul believed, they became vain in their imaginations and they became fools, and because they did not know the real God, they changed God, to be like themselves, and began to worship the creature, the human being more than the creator.

 

 Paul believed, “When they knew God, they glorified him NOT as God,   but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.”
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man 

Can it be said any plainer… Man created the God in the Bible. Man didn’t know the Real God, so man invented a God and this God is just like man.

As you read on, you will find that the second god man worships, is really a man made God. Not a real God. You decide if you like this man made God the religions tell you is the real God.

Let us now do some real investigating into the second god, the god we are told about in the Bible. The  second god we are told created us, and we are taught is a real God and he had all the characteristics of man.  Like man, this god used fear, punishment or reward to control his creation.

This second god is also defined as ‘a man, godlike,’ who accounts for some who believe they are god like. This god is made in the image and likeness of man. In all ways. If you doubt this, read your Bible and there is no way anyone can disagree. This second god is who the religions teach us about, but somehow forget, or just ignore  to explain all the horrible, horrible things he did to his creation. And if you really read closely, this god may be only a bad man.

It was the ancient Leaders who were vain, and it was they who decided what god would be like. To repeat, this god is the god who has been handed down through the centuries and is the god modern man worships. This second god we are taught to worship and obey is a changeable god, and sometimes a god who appears as an angry uncaring god. He is a god that does not protect his creation at all times, and from the very beginning this god has played favorites.

Some of his creation he created good, healthy, happy and successful, while others he created evil, sick and poor. He is a god that loves  all things bad and seems to do his best to keep the hatred among men continue.

Again, this god that has been handed to the world, is a god created by the ancient men,  and I believe they did so to have more power and control.

This god is ‘not’ the real God and is ‘not’ the real first cause of all things. Again, think about this as you read, for this  second  god is the god of the religions.The god we are to worship  and love.

This second god takes much pride in his evil man like ways.

This second God tells us

“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.”

Mans God says

‘I YOUR GOD CREATED EVIL ‘

The Bible tells us…” Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.” Why would a real God want to kill two people for doing something?

This is a good one…

“And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that the LORD kill  all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man.

And according to ancient Jeremiah this second god had no problem ordering the killing of his people. This is what Jeremiah tells us about this god that we are told is a good God. This second god said, “Waste and utterly destroy them, said the Lord, and do according to all that I have commanded thee.”    This god, this supposedly all good god wants to destroy what he is said to have created.

This man create god tells you “If your own full brother does not yield or listens nor look with pity upon him to spare or shield him, but kill him.   This god is exactly like man and has no problem killing people that disobey him. Sounds like a lot of men then and now.

It seems ancient wise King David thought this second  god of the fathers was like a ‘man’ when he said, “Then the Lord awaken as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouts by reason of wine.”

This is the  God that man is taught to love and honor.

True, for there is no mention of the First God after Genesis 1 .

Think about that.

Glad this God is NOT my God.

My God is the same God Jesus had and it sure wasn’t the Bible Man Make God.

Sad but it takes deep investigating to find and know the First God-the Real God
