Today, I find myself back in Genesis 2 and 3 reviewing the “garden scene”.  I see so many amazing things edenoccurring there that I hope will be “eye opening” to you.

These are things that I suspect you haven’t heard but I believe are very good.  I pray it will give you a WHOLE new inspiring view of what is often called “the fall of man” and a whole new outlook on mankind and even yourself.  I know it has dramatically changed my view of who I am.

Before we do this, let’s ask the following question.

What are the parts of a man?  What is a human made of?Continue reading

The mystery of God from our natural view.

The mystery of God from our natural view.

Warning:  The following will sound like the words of a crazy person. 

They are.

I woke up this morning a couple hours early and couldn’t sleep again.  Then, as I was becoming more awake, I heard a conversation going on again in my mind which has occurred many times before.  Once I realized it wasn’t going to stop, I got up and started writing down what I heard.

I wrote for 3+ hours and was hoping I could share it with you, but it is not very understandable for our natural, linear human mind as it has too many topics all woven together.  I couldn’t find the words to make it linear.  So, I kept it for myself or I would be asking you to untangle a barrel of fish hooks.  I don’t think I would like doing that, so I won’t ask you to.

Then, I stumbled upon this verse which is very close to being an epic summary of much of what I was hearing and writing.

Before we look at it, I a wondering if there is anyone truly seeking the truth who is willing to accept what it is really saying and dig deeper into it?

If you are, I can promise you that you will find both LIFE and the author of life, my friend.  If you are still with me, please consider these words carefully and then let’s ask some questions.Continue reading

Ever feel like you are waiting for the splat?

Ever feel like you are waiting for the splat?

I believe I understand and have been living in the reality that Jesus told us about living in faith.  It’s a scary and lonely place at times.  Where did Jesus himself spend much of his time?

Alone in the “wilderness”.  Have you ever asked yourself where this place truly is?  It’s a place of temptation by the enemy of our soul.  Remember the phrase the “wilderness of the soul”?

I believe the true walk of faith in this life and this body is a single, solitary walk in the “wilderness” (solitary) of the soul.  It doesn’t mean others are never around us, but we are to spend most of our time with him.  It sure would be nice to have others to walk along, but my experience has been that they quickly separate from you once the Lord has you speak words of faith beyond where they are.  We are not supposed to go beyond what the “accepted level of faith” is for the group.

I have come to conclude that believing God’s Word directly as it is written and speaking it to others will cause them to separate from you.  It’s like “dividing the waters” or “separating the wheat from the chaff”.   When you first see it occur, it will perplex you.  You see a powerful life-giving truth in his Word that is feeding you life and you attempt to share it with others and they run away from you as if you are the walking dead!  Why?

I have asked this question and here is what I heard.

Did you know that the definition of a “Pharisee” is “one who separates or goes away from”?   They actually run AWAY from the truth when they hear it instead of towards it.

Why does this occur?

One word.

Fear.Continue reading

Have you ever played the game called “find the differences” in a picture?

Well, ask yourself the question… “How old was Ahazaih when he became King”?

Then, look at these two verses, first one from 2 Chronicles 2:22 and the second from 2 Kings 8:26.

2Chron22_2

 

2Kings826

See any differences?

If you do and wonder what is going on, ask the Lord and listen.  He will reveal powerful and amazing things to you from within your own heart and mind.  Far beyond what you can ask or even imagine.  Eph 3:20

God bless.

 

Here is something that I pray will really encourage you today.  Check out this verse in it’s original words and consider this question.

Who is it that God is telling us that practices good or evil?

The truth is indeed, VERY good my friend.  May we both hear his words of truth and life in our heart, mind today.

 

Today, I am asking the question: Should we believe man or God?

Man tells us this (is what God said) in Ezekiel 14:21:

For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast? Ezekiel 14:21 KJV

or

“For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my four dreadful judgments–sword and famine and wild beasts and plague–to kill its men and their animals! Ezekiel 14:21 NIV

Let’s see the actual original Hebrew words God gave us and read them ourselves directly.  Continue reading

***** Edited 082414 – More words and added them to the end *******

I have been studying the original words of scripture again the past couple days and I see something interesting to me.

Today,  I am seeing there are four different original Greek words for the English word “flesh” (not counting built-in punctuation or verbs).

Pondering this along with the exact precise nature of God, I can’t help but wonder if in God’s mind and the true (yet hidden) reality there are 4 different kinds of “flesh”?Continue reading

I don’t know what happened, but the Spirit seems gone.  He was very active for 3 years speaking and revealing powerful things to me.

Then, sometime in April I think, it seems he just vanished.  That is why I haven’t posted.  It would be me attempting to fake it.  Before this was impossible.

Since that time, I have not been hearing him and really struggling with darkness on and off.  Most days I have no desire to even study his Word.

Why?

“What’s the use”?  I hear.  “Nobody seems to care what God’s word says anyway”.  For me, the power comes when I get to share the awesome things I hear with others and they receive them. If no one can receive them, I can’t seem to “open the package” it seems.

Depressing huh?

Yes, but true to what I am experiencing.   And have been experiencing.  Life has been very dark for the most part since that time.

I do hope he returns or “unhides” himself.  Lord, where are you?

Wolf in Sheep's clothing

Who are the “Wolves in Sheep’s clothing”?

Have you ever pondered these verses and asked the Lord their true meaning?

“Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravaging wolves Matt 7:15

So, what does it mean to be a “sheep” and to be in “sheep’s clothing”?  Is this a religious or non-religious person?  Why are they “ravaging wolves”?  Who is this referring to?

Let’s look at Ezekiel 22.

“Son of man, say to her, ‘You are a land that is not cleansed or rained on in the day of indignation.’ 25 There is a conspiracy of her prophets in her midst like a roaring lion tearing the prey. They have devoured lives; they have taken treasure and precious things; they have made many widows in the midst of her. 26 Her priests have done violence to My law and have profaned My holy things; they have made no distinction between the holy and the profane, and they have not taught the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they hide their eyes from My sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. 27 Her princes within her are like wolves tearing the prey, by shedding blood and destroying lives in order to get dishonest gain. 28 Her prophets have smeared whitewash for them, seeing false visions and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God,’ when the Lord has not spoken Ez 22:24-28

When do the “wolves” come in?Continue reading

Jesus tells us some very SHOCKING things.  I am wondering if ANYONE actually believes these words?  I have yet to meet someone who does.

You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved Matt 10:22

You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved Mark 13:13

and you will be hated by all because of My name Luke 21:17

Let me ask you this “Christ-follower” … are you hated by ALL?

Think about the person you know who knows God’s Word the best.  Are THEY hated by ALL?Continue reading
