I have many subjects to cover this week, most of these thoughts may not be complete and I’m learning to be ok with that. These thoughts are being shared to help me think deeper about these subjects and maybe it will help someone else do the same along the way, on their journey for the truth. I watched a video clip within a video of a pastor that was speaking (I have not been able to locate the original source of the video) and in this video clip the pastor mentioned that there may be times in our lives that we feel we are battling against the devil but it may not be the devil as God resists anything that goes against His plan. This made me think, is the resistance that I have experienced in my life when I am not doing God’s will, is that the devil or is that God? I have come to believe that God lives inside each and everyone of us, I could be wrong but here’s where I’m coming from. God does not force Himself into our lives but He is everywhere, there is nowhere we can go to get away from God. However, we have been given free will to make choices. I believe that when we accept Jesus, the Son of the living God, into our hearts it is an outward response to make us aware of what is happening to us internally. This process makes us aware of God living inside of us. I do not believe that the Spirit of Truth has taught me anything without feeding Him, I have been given new thoughts based on the information that is inside of me and while I believe now that He can teach me new information without me doing research, I have yet to reach that level of deep communion with God. Follow me here for a moment, we all know what truth sounds like based on some basic truths we’ve gathered throughout our lives and when someone shares a story with us that is so true and so emotionally touching, that we experience one of our senses that most of us know nothing about. Have you ever experienced goosebumps? Is this one of our senses that most of us know nothing about? Is it letting us know, this is true, this is good, this is right? I believe that we can intentionally feed the Spirit of Truth with the water that God provides, water that is not for our physical bodies but rather for our spiritual bodies (truth that comes from the Bible). When we fill our soul with truth we experience other senses, like goosebumps and maybe even something more intense. This has been true in my life and as you can see, I’ve only just begun. I have now experienced an energy, accompanied by goosebumps that has surged through my body that I can not explain, this has happened during times of prayer and meditation. Why has so much of our history been hidden from us and the information that has been shared seems like it is twisted. You know something isn’t right, you just can’t put your finger on it, why? Like Morpheus from The Matrix says “You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.” So, I ask again, why would they hide and twist our history? I think I’m learning that you and I are more powerful than we think or know is humanly possible. If we’re willing to step outside of the boxes that we’ve put ourselves in, under their control, if we can learn how to connect with our God on levels that I didn’t know could exist here on earth, we will become their greatest fear. It appears that if we collectively stood up, we would disrupt the game that they are playing on the backs of “we the people.” Now just imagine if we learn to connect with the Spirit of Truth, with Jesus, with God and then stand up. Nothing will stop us once we learn the Truth. While I believe that I am special and unique and my friends and family would say the same, this is not something that is only available to me, I believe these things are available to each and everyone of us. I believe the promise in the Bible that if we seek, we shall find. I hope you will join me in God’s army, connect with the Spirit of God, stand up and cause massive levels of destruction to the accuser’s kingdom. -A humble warrior in God’s army
“Jesus said to her, ‘Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.'” -John 4:13-14 ESV
Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation and deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen. -The Lord’s prayer
