Reality vs Common sense
Let’s face it. If it were common, it would seem a lot more people would have it.
There are bezillions of misconceptions in the Scriptures. They all came about from one source. Jesus employed a curse in Revelations, saying cursed would be the man that added words to the Scriptures. How do they get added? Who adds them? It may surprise you to learn that man’s mind is on auto-add. Because of this we have different denominations, interpretations, and your run-of-the-mill everyday arguments. There are a few reasons your faith doesn’t ‘work’. These are the same reasons the Church doesn’t ‘work’. Same for ineffective prayer. One reason is discord. The other is the curse Jesus implemented for adding words. All this comes from “how” you hear (or read). When you hear, or read, your mind “automatically” “adds to” what you hear. This installment will be a sort of look down the road for this series.
Mark 4:24, “Take heed what ye hear: with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you: and to you that hear shall more be given.”
Luke 8:18, “Take heed therefor how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.”
Mat 16:6 ” Jesus said, ‘take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.”
These can all be looked at as curses. They are. They are also safeguards. “A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump”.
Jesus, and or belief in a God or anything supernatural seems to be contrary to science. It is not, and actually goes along with it perfectly. In quantum physics, and other sciences, we study magnets, and shapes that create unique energies, (crystals as unique as fingerprints, and are used for the frequency that goes ‘to-and-from’ your cellphone). Your own DNA is a blueprint for your unique shape. This shape creates an energy that identifies itself by your name. We already know shapes create energy. This is old science. I want to talk about some things, and at the same time give you and example of the way we hear. We talked about language, mental telepathy, the tower of Babel, and about the Church being of one accord.
Language is such now as to cause your mind to “add to” almost everything you hear.
The reason is that we are separated, and not of one accord. The Scriptures tell us that at Pentecost they “were all of one mind, and of one ‘accord‘”. These cords are not some magic mumbo jumbo that only the chosen few can attain to. It is a frequency matter. These frequencies are literal highways in the physical world, but can very well be seen as magic. In fact, when radio communication came about, many of the older folk thought it was magic.
We talked about how point of view when reading can, and does vary. If we read, “for all have sinned” from one perspective it means all. In another perspective, if I walk up to you, put my arm around you and point at a specific group; then say the exact same words, then it does not mean everyone, but only the group. This is where the “problem” comes in. The exact same words are used, and two completely different meanings are deduced. This “curse” was put here for a reason; so we couldn’t get it wrong. My aim is to bring Jesus into your “reality”. He is a living, breathing, alive now person that I have personally met….in the spirit, and more importantly, in the flesh. He is not Santa Clause.
To give you an example of how to take heed, I’ll give you a truth. In Genesis 3:21, man knew he was naked, so God ‘brought‘ man coats of skin. I highlighted ‘brought‘ because this is a common misconception. The mind ‘adds’ this….
“and he killed some animals, and clothed them with the skins of animals“
This may seem like not such a big deal. However, as stated above, a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. This “not-so-big-a-deal” will cause you to see things a certain way. In turn, you will “be” a certain way. For example, if you want to see the skin God clothed Adam with, just pinch your forearm, pull the “skin” up and watch it fall back into place. That is the “skin” we were clothed with, and still is.
You could even call it a spirit prison, but then that would be another “add-on”.
There are many misconceptions, right? Would you believe all of your beliefs are a misconception, if any of them are? If we are to believe Jesus teaching, then a little makes all. There is no “almost there”. I am (for lack of a better word) weird. Different people pray for different things. Once I knew God, instead of just hoped He was there, I asked Him, “How did you do all this?” I meant “all” this; life and everything that goes with it. He said something remarkable. He said that if you want to create life, the very first thing you have to have is a story. Imagine that. I have a blog on my website about that called “Why Us?” Think about it. Why did He create us? The fact that He did with free will seems to go against the very concept of “God”. I find it helps to put yourself in God’s place sometimes, and ask yourself, “Why this or that?” This is how Jesus answered most of my questions. He would say, “How would you feel about this if you were me?”
The first time He said that I was actually playing the part of Jesus in the Church Christmas play. The Church wanted to depict the scene where everyone threw their crowns at Jesus feet, and “fell down and worshiped” Him. When the other Church people in the play started crawling around my feet, and bowing up and down, I felt really uncomfortable about that. That’s the first time Jesus spoke to me “not in a body”. He said,
“If you were me, would you want a bunch of people crawling around on the floor at your feet?“
My answer (in my mind. I didn’t say this) was a great big hell no. He doesn’t want that either. (see “Why Us?”) The whole thing is much more simple than people realize. I asked an earlier post what you thought God wants. What’s Jesus want? Everyone tells Him what they want, but few want to know what He wants. Here’s a clue. John 15:15,
“Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what the lord doeth; but I have called you friends.”
Note that He is trying to get off the high horse people put him on. It is the whole point of the Gospel that He comes as a man, and not “a God“. He also tried to explain this to Peter when He washed Peter’s feet. Here is the biggest reason Jesus is not recognized. They look for a flying superhuman wizkid with lightning for shoes, and not a simple man. Don’t get me wrong. This simple man holds the keys to death and hell. However,
He is still the same simple man that was crucified, and God did raise Him up.
He’s still Himself; a simple man. I hope to explain (with and without science) how He can and will be seen by everyone. Note that the misconception is that He will be seen by everyone “at the same time“. “At the same time” is an “add on from the mind” as well, and you won’t find it written there.
This is a glimpse down the road for this series. I want to show how quantum physics is used, and what makes eternal life work. In other words, how this all works. There are “how” people, and there are “why” people. I was always a how person. To me the why is simple. Why not? We are here taking up space, and wasting time anyway, so why not find out how?
Also, if you’re wanting to find out things, why not find the One that knows the most about it? The answers are so simple they are beyond advanced math, even though math is used. Look at the Old Testament. God is a stickler for measurement, and everything is by precise measure. The temple Solomon built is a good example. Later on we will look at that, and see what it was supposed to do, and what it “ended up being” because of the same curse.
It is no coincidence the pyramids and temples were lined up with true magnetic north, nor that they were “charged” by lunar cycles.
I want to get you to “take heed” of some things. You have to look at the whole picture. An Indian once told me I had to “stop the world” before I could see what he sees. I stop Bible verses the same way. Jesus said “Behold, I stand at the door and knock” STOP! Why go anywhere else? If this verse is true, then it seems to be a dandy place to start a search! The whole “denounce the worldly ways” thing in the Bible is about this. Do you realize how many ways we can use the word “world” for different things? Another way to think about it is the reason you are reading this now. You know that there is more to the world than what’s on the surface. That’s why we search for “truth”.
Acts 20:28, One of my favorite verses, should be read here. I would post it, but why deny you the chance to get your Bible out? Hebrews 3:12 is very similar. It’s about keeping it on the real side of things. 1 Cor 3:10, 1 Tim 4:16, Luke 11:35John 16:15
