Seek YE… First… That means that it must be YOU alone who seeks. Well if YOU are going to seek, that means YOU you will need to know what seek means and  YOU will need to know where to seek.

Seek means to search…to discover…to investigate.

That means YOU can only find God when YOU search to discover His Kingdom. YOUR seeking will be YOUR own investigation into Gods Kingdom and His Righteousness.

Now that you know it is YOU who has do this seeking, not your priest or rabbi, guru, not with books, not anyone or anything else, just YOU, then the second thing YOU must do, is know what FIRST means. This is important because you are told to Seek YOU FIRST… So in order to know where to do YOUR  seeking, YOU need to know a little about what the word ‘first’ means, since it is the first step in YOUR seeking for YOUR understanding.

  

Time to investigate some  investing of some words and their meanings

First means, ‘in the beginning.’ Interesting isn’t it, that, In the Beginning are the first words in the bible. Beginning means…the starting place. YOUR starting place then is, In the Beginning. In the Beginning when all was God and His Kingdom of Righteousness. If YOUR starting place is, In the Beginning, YOU are searching and seeking in the right direction.

Did you begin YOUR seeking back in the beginning when there was only God and His Kingdom? Or have you been doing your seeking from the seeking of others? Seeking in churches. Seeking  in books…seeking everywhere, except back in the beginning.

In seeking God, YOU will have to do deep investigation into this God and His Kingdom and since Jesus said, “Gods kingdom is not of this world,”YOU then will not be trying to seek Him in or of or with anything of this world.

So YOU ask, where shall I seek God? YOU should seek Him, where YOU FEEL Him. And where is that? Think, where do YOU FEEL God? Is it not in YOUR INNER PARTS? Maybe that is why ancient David asked, “ Doest thou desire truth in the inward parts.”

Feeling is to ‘be conscious of.’

Feeling is, ‘mental awareness.’ So then it has to be in YOUR own inner parts, in YOUR consciousness, in YOUR mental awareness that YOU seek Him. Do YOU see how hard it would be for YOU to go into someone else’s inner parts to seek God?

Seek YE….YE is… YOU.

Inner, means, ‘within.’ The reason YOU desire truth in YOUR inner parts is because that is where God is. God is. Within. Within YOUR  inner parts whenever YOU are being conscious of Him. Whenever YOU have YOUR inner mental awareness on HIM.

Now that YOU know where to look, doesn’t it now make sense to YOU that it has to be YOUR own seeking, YOUR own searching and discovery, since God and His Kingdom of Righteousness are within YOUR inner parts? Each one of us has to do our OWN seeking, within OUR own inner parts.

Lets do some more seeking and searching into God and see what else we can find. You will not find any answers in this world though. Why? Because according to ancient David, “The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.” Okay, “…but where is the place of wisdom and understanding?” Where shall YOU look? Within? Well, where else if it is true what ancient Job said, that “There is a Spirit IN man and the inspiration of the Almighty gives understanding.”

It is this Spirit that  YOU are to FIRST seek and it will be this Spirit that leads YOU to Gods   and His Kingdom and His Righteousness.

Spirit means, ‘an animating force.’ Animating, means, ‘living’ and living means ‘to be real’ and that which has ‘continuing existence,’ and animating means, ‘a force’ and that is an Intellectual Power.

This Spirit in YOU then is a real, living, intellectual power, which has continuing existence. YOUR   seeking  has led YOU to YOUR inner parts and in these inner parts YOU have discovered that a Spirit lives in YOU.   Does that feel right? Does that feel right to YOU, in YOUR inner parts? Does that understanding make YOU feel like YOU and YOU alone are seeking in the right direction? The direction of within. Within YOUR inner parts,  the only plac YOU can have YOUR mental awareness of the truth of all things.

  So can YOU see it would be foolishness for YOU to seek in this world? YOU would only seek in vain, if you seek from this world, a world where nothing has continuing existence.

Appearance

Every word has many meanings.  Most people will choose the meaning that they have been taught.

In the case of the Bible, there are so many statements that make no sense at all. Like, ‘Judge not by the appearances, but judge righteous judgement.’ Why did Jesus tell us that? He must have known something that we don’t. What was he really saying?

Knowing the meanings of words helps to see or understand that there is the possibly that what you read, like the Bible, may not be giving you the writers intent, but giving you the meaning of the interrupter.

Here are some meanings for the word, ‘judge.’ It can mean, ‘opinion’ which means, ‘not known first hand.’ Opinions come from, ‘public beliefs’, and not ‘know first hand.’ Or ‘judge’ could mean a, ‘thought,’ and thoughts are simply ‘thinking.’ Think means to, ‘form into existence.’

Was Jesus saying, that the ‘appearances’ we see were ‘formed into existence’ by  our thinking? He could have, because, Socrates, Plato and even Shakespeare believed exactly that. They all believed it’s our thoughts that are first cause of all appearances. George Berkeley is another of many. If these great men believed that thoughts are the creative substance of our appearances, why couldn’t have Jesus?

Now lets see different meanings for the word, ‘appearance.’ The word is defined as a, ‘false showing.’ False means to ‘deceive, and a meaning for deceive is, ‘not real.’ Did Jesus understand that appearances were not real, but only mental pictures? He could have, for why else would he say to ‘not judge by the appearances.’ If you do not judge by what you see and feel, what will we judge by?

Appearance also means a, ‘pretense’ and a ‘pretense’ is a, ‘false displaying.’ A ‘false displaying’ of what? Appearance is a, ‘semblance’ which means, ‘to seem.’ Does that mean that appearances only ‘seem’ to be there?

Or appearance could mean to ’assume wrongly.’ If John had choose this meaning, then he was telling us that Jesus wanted us to know if we think appearances are real, we ‘assume wrongly.’ And when we ‘judge by the appearances’ we  are ‘judging’ something that is ‘not real,’ but ‘seems’ real. Is that what John thought Jesus meant, appearances are not real, they just ‘seem’ real?

Jesus and John could have been telling us that what was appearing was deceiving us into believing that there is more than the ALL BEING, GOD? Could be, because if the appearances are real, then God is not All. In which case you would have all the appearances and God. Either God IS All there is, or there is God and….? Remember, God is Omnipresent, and that means being everywhere at once…and that leaves no room for ‘appearances.’

How did the interrupters know what John really meant when he wrote, ‘Judge not by the appearances, but judge righteous judgement.’ Well, ‘righteous’ means ‘wise’ and wise is, ‘to be aware.’ Aware of what?

It is likely that Jesus was telling the people that they should be ‘aware’ that the ‘appearances’ they see, ‘are not real or present’ but are coming from where all things first come, and that is your thinking. You have to think something, before it can come into your experience as the ‘appearance.’

Maybe Jesus was telling the people a very different message than the one that we ended up with, which is based on how the interrupters of each word they chose to define it, based on their choice and their opinion of which meaning Jesus had in mind. And maybe it was not the way Jesus meant it at all.

Something to at least think about and stop being a follower of the interrupters understanding and do your own investigating of the meaning of the words John wrote and all the Bible writers and possibly the Writings will take on a whole new meaning for you.

YOU, be the interrupter. Get your dictionary and really investigate the words and their original root and the original meanings and you may be very surprised.

GOD

 

This is what Jesus said about his God

‘You have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape….’.

So who was the god that the people saw and talked with?

Adam and Eve-Cain and Abel-

Moses Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel . . .

and they saw the God of Israel.

And the nobles of the children of Israel

Saw God, and did eat and drink with God

There are many others who Talked-Walked And Ate with the Second God

People not only saw God, spoke with God but also they ate with God.

Really Think About That

So then why did Jesus saying

          ‘You have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape????

It is because the God Jesus spoke of…..was NOT the same God.

The Second Bible God who man worships….

is NOT the Real God and Jesus knew that.

INSTEAD OF THE GOD OF THE ANCIENT MEN WHO DID NOT UNDERSTAND THERE WERE

TWO GODS IN THE BIBLE

 

Are You So Foolish

‘Are you so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are you now made perfect by the flesh?  

What does that mean? I thought I began in my mothers womb.

But no,  ‘It is the spirit that quicken, the flesh profited nothing.’

Quicken means, ‘to make become alive.’

It is my SPIRIT that makes me alive, not my flesh.

Job tells  me, ‘There is a  ‘spirit in man.’

That means there is a ‘spirit’ in me. What is the spirit in me?  And what does that mean to me? If I began in the SPIRIT, what is the spirit?

Dictionary time. First meaning is  a ‘vital principle.’  Vital means, ‘essential,’and ‘essential’ means, ‘essence‘, which means, ‘real’. So then, my SPIRIT is the real part of me, and not my flesh.  Now   for the meaning of ‘principle’  which means the ‘source. That’s telling me, my SPIRIT is the  source’ of me. That would mean if my SPIRIT is my source, then it is the only thing supplying my needs.   My  SPIRIT is who and what I am,  and not my  fleshly body.

A spirit is ‘an animating force within a person.’ Animate means, ‘to give life to.’ So  again, it is my SPIRIT who gives me life, not my mother or father, but my spirit. And the word ‘force,  means,  Power, Control and Authority.’  It is only my inner SPIRIT, my INNER INTELLIGENT  ANIMATING LIFE FORCE’  that has complete ‘power, control and  authority over me and not time, nor diseases, or anything.  Especially not my flesh.

So  I am being foolish if I believe there is or can be some other Powers, some other Control or Authority over my flesh.

Spirit means, ‘essential nature of a person.’ Essential  the very essence of a thing.’ Essential means   perfect.’ Am I perfect? Is my body perfect?

At this point it seems it is not perfect as it has various complaints and that is why I am trying to learn why I do seem to have fleshy issues, because I do not want to be foolish and as long as I believe I can be made perfect by trying to fix my flesh, my body, I am being foolish.

  Yes I’m foolish if I believe I can heal my fleshly body and make it perfect, because the word body means,  ‘distinguished from the spirit.’ 

Spirit is defined as ‘an inner intelligent life force.’

It’s name is Consciousness. I am are not in the flesh, I am in Consciousness. And I  can never get out. And all that Consciousness IS. I AM. And all that Consciousness has. I have. Am I, can I really be different from my inner SPIRIT? Different from my inner Intelligent Life Force-that

I am one with?

 I am foolish if I do not understand, agree and accept, my Spirit  will perfect that which concerns me:  But  first, let patience have her perfect work, that I  may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

I will not  give up being patient knowing the problems of the flesh are my opportunity to grow and fully understand it is ONLY  my SPIRIT that shows me my perfection.

If perfect means, ‘pure or unmixed,’ then to be perfect I  cannot be foolish and mix healthy and unhealthy thoughts together.

But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.’

I will stop being foolish when my perfection comes, which means, when I fully stop mixing good and bad thoughts.

Perfect is, ‘entirely without any flaws, defects.’ Perfect is ‘pure and unmixed.’

If I stop being foolish and understand what the ancients were saying then

‘I shall have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure.’

I will stop being foolish when I stop believing food has the power I am told it has.

How can food know anything?

So stop being foolish and forget about my fleshly body and “Be perfect, even as my spirit which is within me, is perfect.”

But what do I do when my flesh is in pain? Is diseased? Is to fat, or to thin?  Am I foolish when I try so hard to get my fleshly body well?

It appears that, yes, I am foolish as I struggle so hard to fix something with  my flesh,“for I wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”  

I do wrestle when my flesh is in pain, or in any distress. Wrestle means, ‘struggle for mastery.’ Wrestle is to turn from the proper course.’ If I stay only on the middle  path and not turn to the good, or turn to the bad, all things stay under Selfs control.   Wrest is ‘effort.’ I need to stop all efforts to be perfect. All efforts to be or do anything for or by ‘self.’ For the little ‘i’.

When experiencing a physical problem I believe I  must do something to and for my flesh.  But do I ? Well not according to Paul when he said, we are NOT to wrestle against anything.

So what am I  to do?

So stop being foolish and forget about my fleshly body and “Be perfect, even as my spirit which is within me, is perfect.”

My problem is not my flesh, but me  putting the problems with my flesh above my Inner Intelligent Life Force. My SPIRIT.

 So my fleshly problem is giving my body the attention and worship I should be giving to my SPIRIT. My own inner Self.

The Spirit is truly ready, but the flesh is weak. 

So how can I stop being foolish?

“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the spirit.’ 

For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.’

Abstain from     Lust, ‘desires.’

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.’

  ‘For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these;  hatred,   wrath, strife,  envy.  drunkenness,  as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.

So if I keep thinking that my flesh is me, instead of my spirit being all that I am, I am foolish. 

To stop being foolish I should maybe forget my body when it tries to keep my mind stayed on it and do what I  have been told, and that is to keep my mind stayed on my inner SPIRIT.

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”

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?

Foolish

‘Are you so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are you now made perfect by the flesh? 

 What does that mean? I thought I began in my mothers womb.  But no,

‘It is the spirit that quicken, the flesh profited nothing.’ 

Quicken means, ‘ to make become alive.’

It is my Spirit that makes me alive, not my flesh.

Isaiah tells  me, ‘There is a  ‘spirit in man.’   That means there is a ‘spirit’ in me. What is the spirit in me?  And what does that mean to me?

If I began in the spirit, what is the spirit?

Dictionary time.

First meaning for ‘spirit’ is  a vital principle.  Vital means, essential’ and ‘essential’ means, ‘essence‘, which means, ‘real’.

So then, my ‘spirit’ is the real part of me, and not my flesh.

 Now  for the meaning of ‘principle’  which means the source.

That’s telling me, my inner ‘SPIRIT’ is the ‘source’ of me. That would mean if my Spirit is my source, then it is the only thing supplying my needs.   My  SPIRIT is who and what I am,  and not my  fleshly body.

A spirit is ‘an animating force within a person.’ Animate means, ‘to give life to.’

So  again, it is my spirit who gives me life, not my mother or father, but my spirit.

And the word ‘force,  means,  Power, Control and Authority.’  It is only my inner spirit, my  inner intelligent animating life force‘ that has complete ‘power, control and  authority over me and not time, nor diseases, or anything.

So  I am being foolish if I believe there is or can be some other Powers, some other Control or Authority over my flesh.

Spirit means, ‘essential nature of a person.’ Essential  the ‘very essence of a thing.’ Essential is,  ‘perfect.’ Am I perfect? Is my body perfect?

At this point it seems my body  is not perfect as it has various complaints and that is why I am trying to learn why I do seem to have fleshy issues, because I do not want to be foolish and as long as I believe I can be made perfect by trying to fix my flesh, my body, I am being foolish.

‘Are you so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are you now made perfect by the flesh? 

 Yes I’m foolish if I believe I can heal my fleshly body and make it perfect, because the word body means, ‘distinguished from the spirit.’

Am I, can I really be different from my spirit?

There is no way I could ever be something outside of my SPIRIT

Spirit is defined as ‘an inner intelligent life force.’

My inner intelligent life is Consciousness.

I am are not in the flesh, I am in Consciousness. And I  can never get out. And all that Consciousness IS. I AM.

And all that Consciousness has. I have.

I am foolish if I do not understand, agree and accept, my ‘Spirit  will perfect that which concerns me:  But  first, let patience have her perfect work, that I  may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.   

Don’t give up being patient knowing the problems of the flesh are my opportunity to grow and fully understand it is ONLY  my inner SPIRIT that shows me my perfection.

If perfect means, ‘pure or unmixed,’ then to be perfect I  cannot be foolish and mix healthy and unhealthy thoughts together.‘   I may be made perfect only  in pure unmixed thinking.

SO STAY PURE AND  UNMIXED

AND   BE AMAZED AT THE RESULTS

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.
