v4QEnZ1440355165

Like so many other sayings, could this one have a hidden meaning? Lets see.

    First, why would Jesus want them to ‘leave their nets.’

‘Leave’ comes from the word, ’believe’ and ’believe is, ’to accept something as true without absolute proof that it is true.’

Could Jesus have been trying to tell the fishermen that it was time to ‘leave,’ to leave what they had always ‘believed and accepted’ about what they had been taught about God?  Did Jesus want to teach them about his God, a God that they could ‘prove’?

 Maybe another reason was because Jesus understand the word ’net’ can mean, ’conditions and circumstances.’

Was Jesus trying to get the men to understand that their present ‘conditions ’ were only ‘agreements?’ Agreements, because that is what the meaning for ‘conditions’ is, ‘agreements.’

If so, an ‘agreement with what? Agreements with the handed down beliefs and opinions from the ancient fathers? Ancient fathers who believed in a god of war and destruction?

 Did Jesus also understand the word ’net’ can mean,  ‘circumstances?

Interesting to know that the word ‘circumstance’ has a meaning of, ‘to stand around.’ And isn’t that what you do when you fish the way you have been taught to fish? You ‘stand around, waiting’? Also interesting is that ‘stand’ can mean, an ‘opportunity.’

Was Jesus giving them an ‘opportunity’ to change their ‘conditions and circumstances’? An ‘opportunity’ to understand they did not   have to ‘agree’ with what they had been taught about God and man.

A God they had been taught was the real God, with  no proof that He was real? And that man is made of the flesh, when he is not.

zlxflq1436644327

Isn’t it most interesting to know different meanings for words? So think about this…Jesus wanted the fishermen to ‘follow’ him…not follow him around the countryside…but to ‘follow’…to listen to him and to accept him as their guide.

Did Jesus want the fishermen to stop agreeing with worldly conditions and worldly circumstances and worldly beliefs and handed down opinions of God and his Creation and to ‘follow’ which in this case means to ‘listen to him and he would guide and teach them truths of a real God. And by understanding the real God, it would change their human conditions and circumstances.

Another meaning for the word ‘net’ is ‘anything that serves to ensnare.’ Ensnare is to, ‘trap and take power over someone.’

Was Jesus telling them that if they left their old ways and old beliefs and followed him, he would show them  the truth of things and they could regain their power and be set free from their human conditions and circumstances.

Maybe, because

l8oMun1440349127

Could that be what Jesus was really saying to them? That they could take back their God given power of freedom?

And maybe Jesus wanted them to understand that there were different ways to fish.

Since a meaning for the word ‘fish’ is  ‘to search, to seek,’ did Jesus want to show them how, if they would leave their nets he would show them how to ‘search and seek’ and then to become fishermen of men?

 They must have believed in Jesus

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.

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.

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

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

Jesus Said

8W66Sp1446311668

What did  Jesus mean?

Did Jesus  NOT want us  to look to him for God?

Maybe because  why else would he have said that?

And why  did Jesus say

If I Do Not Go Away?

Maybe he had to go away because the people were believing he was God. Maybe he had to go away because the people were believing he was doing the miracles. Maybe he simply had to go away because the people were not ‘understanding’ what he was telling them.

Most likely,  because we were told that.

And they understood none of these things:  neither knew they the things which were spoken.’

And maybe Jesus had to go away because the people were asking him things instead of asking God.

          1

It  clearly states

‘ASK ME’

 About things that concern you. God did not say ask Jesus.

Why…..BECAUSE

bible-god-quotes-427

And Jesus WAS in this world.

Maybe not of it…but he was IN it.

AND

What is in us, that’s GREATER than anyone in this world?

         0c359f1211f7777bc9beb0592e4b9494

And that HE is your inner Spirit.

That’s exactly what is in your Bible.

A Dream

0052And What Does Man Do When He Sleeps

He

5492971031_5655380b8c_zLast night I had a dream. While in my dream, I never even thought that it was not something real… for to me, I was really experiencing it as part of my life. Part of my reality. No one could tell me I was only dreaming.

Then when I woke this morning, I was now NOT dreaming.

But I must be,

Because NO WHERE does the Bible say God woke Adam. And if we are all a part of Adam (which I don’t believe) we are a part of Adams dreams. Dreams we call, ‘dreams’ and ‘dreams’ we call life.

And maybe that is why we are told to

th

Isn’t that saying that YES man is asleep? It must or why would be told to wake up?

Are we being told to ‘be aware’ that the sleeping man of dust is not the real us? And that as man sleeps,  man ‘dreams’ he has a life in a body of dust.

And if he  ‘awakens’ which means to ‘be aware.’

Then the ‘light’ which is ‘understanding’

Man would then fully ‘understand’

qq

Not in a sleeping mans dreams.

If my so called dream world, that seems so real, and is not…who’s to say, this RIGHT NOW that I’m experiencing, is not just a dream world also?

Are You Real

What are in the things in this world John was talking about? Did John believed like those before him, that mans reality was not a real reality?

Probably, because he also said

th

It’s interesting to known that the Latin meaning for ‘idol’ is-

 ‘That Which Is Seen’

And what is that is ‘seen’?

Things that have ‘forms.’

Things that are known as  ‘appearances.’

And what did John say about ‘appearances’?

11

Was John trying to tell us that we are not really here and our body composed of flesh and blood is not who or what we are? Did John As those before him, believe man is a shadow?

6447927569_bf069f39cf_z

What is a ‘shadow?

 ‘ An Imperfect Imitation Of Something.’

Are we being told that we are only ‘imitations’ of something?

Probably

29192

Do we ‘deceive’ ourselves?

We do if we do not know

An ‘imitation’ is NOT the REAL thing.

So then, did those wise Bible men know that ‘man’ and all the ‘things’ in this world….

ARE NOT REAL?

Therefore

Acknowledge Him

f0c3a117b17db9658865ac398be68fe2

Do you ‘acknowledge’ him in all your ways?

Do

your  eyes ‘acknowledge’ him in all you see?

Do you ears ‘acknowledge’ him in all your hear?

Do  your words  ‘acknowledge’

him in all you say?

If you do not, then how will you know which path is best for you?

 th

You won’t…not unless

f0c3a117b17db9658865ac398be68fe2

IN ALL YOUR WAYS

Will you take time to ‘acknowledge’ him in all you

‘see, hear, speak and feel,’

So you will know which way to go?

Or

Will you continue on the same old human path you’ve always followed and ‘see’ all the horrible things of ‘this world’ and ‘hear’ all the horrible news of man instead of hearing all the ‘good’  and to ‘speak’, only to please God and forget all  complaining, judging and criticizing words?

What’s the point of professing love for God, if you can’t do most of what the Bible tells you to do.

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’?
