Monday 1/10/22 – Ignorance is Bliss?

Good afternoon God, Master Creator, King of the universe, Maker of Heaven and earth. Thank You for this day of rest and recharging before I start my work week. Thank You for all of the many blessings You have provided for me and my family. All the ways You have taken care of us and all the ways You continue to take care of us and provide for our every need. I thank You for this outlet that has provided me an area to share my thoughts regarding the information that I believe You are leading me to. I continue to ask You today and every day for the knowledge, wisdom and discernment I need to make the right decisions for everyone involved. I ask for the knowledge, wisdom and discernment to be able to make sense of the truth I feel that I’m unearthing in my own life. I ask that You remind me to always put on the armor You have provided for me to be able to search deeper for the truth. All these things I ask in Your holy, mighty & precious Name, Amen.

Another wild and crazy week of self discovery as we continue on in this new year of 2022. As I sit here and thank God for many things, not the least of these being that it is January 10 and I’ve been on my screened in lanai for most of the day. The day started out with a pancake breakfast with my family that my wife prepared. It is a beautiful, breezy 79 degrees. If we still lived in Michigan we would not be enjoying the outdoors, not like this anyway. There were times that we visually measured the amount of snowfall using the outdoor table/covered up furniture on our deck. I’ve been reading for a good part of the day so far while my wife leads homeschool with our girls. I’ve heard it said and have even said myself on occasion that ignorance is bliss. I think most of us would agree that most of the time while ignorance is bliss, what we don’t know can hurt us, if not now it can be much later in life that we realize this. Something I used to consider a weakness compared to what the world had taught me, was my inability to focus and stay on one thing and see it through to completion. God appears to be using that weakness as a strength as He leads me through this life to truth. I currently have something like 15+ books that I have picked up and started reading, I call it channel surfing. I’m reading on many different topics, everything from the Bible, to Homer’s Odyssey, to American history, to world history, to church history, to conspiracies, to how God speaks to us including one of the books I’ve recently picked up called HEARING GOD’S VOICE by Henry & Richard Blackaby. This doesn’t even include all of the audio books that I’ve mixed in there with the last 3 regarding spirituality, one from 1926, one from 1944 and yet another one I’ve recently finished from 1908 and now I’ve moved on to some of the teachings from Napoleon Hill. I say all of this to share that I get input from many, many different sources. Throw some Telegram channels into the mix and I have for myself a smorgasbord of information. While I do believe that the Spirit of God can and most likely will show me and teach me truth without research, I have a lot of information that I’ve acquired over the 38 or so years here on earth that I have to battle. I think part of being human is that I need confirmation of the information that I’m being given, shown and led to. It is painful when you start to realize the lies that we’ve been led to believe. It started for me with simple truths like people that I thought I looked up to, admired and wanted to be like, only to find out they aren’t who they were portrayed to be on tv and in the movies. Simple truths like evil, like deep, dark evil from the Bible still exists in modern day, it’s just been hidden better. When I started to realize the possibility of true evil existing on a large scale it opened up my perspective of who God is and the pendulum that swings in our minds to the possibility that true evil currently still exists. The way I see it, if I can only comprehend sin to the extent of a person murdering another person (which is evil, please don’t misunderstand me) then my God only has to be good enough to outweigh that amount of evil with the same amount of good. When you find out that there is greater evil than that and they are not one off situations but rather pre-meditated and on a much grander scale than I could comprehend then you can begin to see how big our God really is. I really hope and pray that this makes sense to the reader, whomever you may be. I think what I’m trying to say is that those that are evil serve a different god, a god who thinks he’s just as powerful as God, the Creator. If he isn’t as powerful as God, the Creator and I don’t believe that he is, then my God has to be bigger and more powerful than anything he can do, even if he was given dominion over this world for a time. I know this post may be a little darker than previous ones and I hope and pray that you’ll do your own research to see if you come up with different conclusions than I have. I can only lead you to the door, you have to make the decision to walk through it. Again, as I’ve said many times, I’m just a man, searching for the truth, I speak with no level of authority, I’m not saying I know more than anyone else. I might have different information but, I’m trying to find and flip over all of the puzzle pieces so that I can better see and understand how all the pieces come together to form an absolutely beautiful picture of life here on earth and what it means. What is after this? I encourage you, if you don’t already know, to search and better understand why you believe whatever it is that you believe. I believe that the truth is inside of each and every one of us and the outside influences of this world shape and mold us to hide the truth from us. I saw a great meme the other day that said “If the truth makes you uncomfortable, don’t blame the truth. Blame the lies that made you comfortable.” I could be completely wrong and I hope I am. Is everything thing I feel I’m led to, 100% true? I don’t believe so but if you subscribe to the Hermetic principle of polarity, all truths are but half-truth, so who knows? My goal is to free my mind of all the constraints that I have placed on myself from education and society as a whole, of who I am and what I am capable of achieving in the process of searching for truth. I believe the mind is a very powerful tool that most people opt out of using because it is much easier to accept what you are told than to do your own research. I hope and pray that you will educate yourself and encourage others to educate themselves and that you will join us in this spiritual battle to defeat the kingdom of satan using the power of the Holy Spirit of God. For myself, I believe I was baptized by the Holy Spirit when I repented of a sin that was separating me from a relationship with my God. I stopped asking for forgiveness and cheap grace. With the help of the Holy Spirit I repented and by the grace of God I have been freed of those shackles in my life. Thank You Lord! I hope and pray that you will find freedom, if you haven’t already. Come join the army of God and help wake up more souls to the truth! -A humble warrior in God’s army

“He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwell with him.” -Daniel 2:22 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
