We Talk About Peace, but Mostly Have No Peace
We talk about peace, but mostly have no peace.
We talk about being Spiritual, but mostly live in the reality of our natural surroundings.
We talk about being Sons, but do not live as Sons.
We talk about love, but never live to become love.
Christianity, as many other religions, offer words as a remedy for the inability to produce the realness of Spiritual expression.
We are taught to “speak” and that as we speak, our words carry the power to produce our ideas or beliefs. so we end up talking a lot about a lot of things, but fail to ever do more than to talk.
Our words have become our power to live by and what we put our faith in, we “bind and loose”, profess and possess, speak into existence, declare and do warfare in the hopes of changing our every day existence on earth and influencing our atmosphere.
Some people are no more than a religious library of words, phrases, behaviours, habits and traditions.
It is those who discover that Spirituality extends way beyond any religion, including Christianity, who find that there is a reality to know and a true experience with God.
Those who’s eyes are enlightened to see and to know a true new life in the Spirit, where they are no longer dependent upon rituals and religious rites, but have transcended to the freedom of being led by the Spirit, to experience the Spirit — Spirit to Spirit.
Where they have discovered that Union brings expression and that expression is far more powerful than confession!
Those who no longer need words, but walk in demonstration of the true realm of reality of being all of His Being, in “weakness, in hardships, in failure”, while being wrapped up in His Grace!
Allow God to be God
I am not meant to be God, but I am meant to allow God to be God!
Though I am a Son, I will learn obedience in the things I suffer or battle with to produce. I am not perfect, no man is, I am called to allow His Perfection to shine through my imperfection.
“For when I am weak and in a position of failure to produce who I was authentically and originally made to be, I find another Power working in me, the Power of His Perfection shining through me to rescue me from my failure and to produce through me what I failed to display.
So in my weakness I find His Strength. This keeps me grounded and from overstepping my bounds in assuming that I have anything to offer out of myself and keeps me in awareness that the Wisdom and Supernatural expressions produced through my life is not from the ability of the lower self, but as a direct result and influence of Union with the Son.
I have learned that the more I focus on self (the self that lived in absence of God’s Wisdom and influence in me), the more of self shines through and that the more I focus on the Spirit, the more of the Spirit is known and seen in me.
I therefore choose to be known in my authenticity as one who has been born from my Father.”
Whomever You Choose Me to Be
Like Jesus and the many Sons He came to free to share their inheritance as God’s family, I will be to you whomever you choose me to be, blessing or curse, true or false, liberator or false teacher, Son or blasphemer.
We attract blessing or curse according to how we receive others and according to our choices we are either blessed by what they carry, or starve ourselves from it.
“You cannot tap into or receive the reward (or gift) a prophet carries, unless you honour and receive him and submit to him in his prophetic authority.”
