Do you ever wonder if God wants us to be poor and not have many material possessions?   Were the “patriarchs” of the faith poor?   Can we help others if we don’t have anything to give?  Let’s look at a verse that caught my attention recently.  It involves material goods and possessions or simply “wealth”.  Does God want to keep us poor?Continue reading

I hope to go much deeper into the Adam and Eve creation story than we have ever gone before.

Warning:  This is a very in-depth and complicated post that I have been working on putting together for nearly two years now and it is constantly changing.  The content in here could be taught nonstop for months if not years as it is deep spiritual material.  I am not a trained theologian, but I don’t believe we need to be.  We have the very teacher inside us and “all knowledge” according to 1 John 2:20 & 1 John 2:27.  If something doesn’t make sense and feel free to skip it for now as the Spirit will teach us what we need to know when we need it.  This is not “intro” material by any stretch of the imagination as I have been working on this for more than a year now as God reveals more.  His plan is extremely rich and deep and these conclusions are my own and will test the religious mind for sure.  If you are new here, I would recommend reading some of the other posts first before this one to get more of a foundation first. My writing can be confusing and complex to follow as I make an attempt to unpack the enormous content of the Spirit.

This is my latest ongoing working theory on Genesis 1 and 2 and the creation of man.  I am sure that most people have not have heard these ideas before and I freely admit there are still a lot of loose ends.  If none of this lines up with what you believe, please just skip it.  However, if you don’t mind some new, fresh and powerful ideas that incorporate more of scripture and are always being updated, please consider it and see what your own heart says to you.  Quite frankly, for me if scripture confirms something and it makes God look bigger and more loving, I will accept it and believe it.  I can’t always “reconcile it” into what I currently know, but I leave that to God to do.  He has not let me down yet and his beauty and amazing love keeps getting bigger and bigger as this occurs.Continue reading

Law = Death

The law is always death for man

This verse JUMPED out at me yesterday as it tells us what God thinks of the wisdom of the person who teaches law or doing anything to obtain your own righteousness.  Look at who he lumps them in with below in 1 Cor 1:20:

Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?  1 Corinthians 1:20 NIV

God lumps in the one who teaches law in with the same group as the person who thinks they are “wise”, the “philosopher of this age” and equates all of them to the “foolish wisdom of the world”.

Teaching people the “Law” is called “Legalism” and it is believing and teaching people to live under any set of rules or Commandments for righteousness or goodness.  However, it is even more deeply seated and subtle than that.  It’s can also be defined as:

  1. Doing anything to change ourselves
  2. Doing anything to change or our standing with God or try to “earn” favor
  3. Doing anything to get something from God

Do we really understand what this means?  I don’t believe we really do because the majority of current Christianity teaches law and is really teaching the basis of Judaism or the OLD Covenant.Continue reading

 

Pastor Paul White has a great teaching on “disarming the accuser” or the Devil.  He has a clear and powerful teaching style.  In this teaching he also goes into parts of Revelation and gives great insight as to the timing of some of the events.  He also talks about how the Devil lost his authority at the cross plus some other very encouraging details.

Enjoy.

 

Who is the Master?

Who is the Master?

I pray you are doing better than my body is today.  I injured myself lifting weights 5 days ago and now I REALLY know what a sciatic nerve is.  How painful!  Don’t we take our bodies for granted until they rebel?  I know I sure do it seems.

I want to share something very powerful that God finally revealed to me today.  Something I have been digging and digging on yet couldn’t find the connection so I let it go and “simmer”.  God can make that happen in a flash and I guess he felt today was the time.  It’s so cool when he allows that to happen, isn’t it?

Thus, today I had a powerful breakthrough on Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 man. I knew for a while now that Genesis 1 man is/was fully spiritual with full spiritual reigning power of the spiritual realm of “Earth” whereas Genesis 2 man (Adam) was physical and natural including his spirit! It’s important to know that even his spirit was “natural” so that’s why I repeated it. Natural just means “downgraded”, “not full strength”, or submissive and veiled to God or spiritual things.   We know natural man is completely veiled to the things of God and can not see or understand them right?

Here is where it went “POP” today when I was reading a “discussion” between two guys on a forum about Genesis 6:1-5 about the “sons of God” marrying the “daughters of men”.  This set of verses has always intrigued me. This is really cool. I hope you stay with me on this and think about it carefully while digging into Gen 1, 2 and Romans 6-8 again after reading this.  I believe you will see what I am saying.

Remember how Genesis 1 it says that mankind were made “male and female”? For the longest time God had not revealed what that meant because I was totally convinced it was powerful spiritual man who rules Earth’s spiritual kingdom and NOT the natural or physical creation.  Please note that both Genesis 1 and 2 man rules over the “beasts” and animals of the earth, birds of the air and fish of the sea.  However, Genesis 1 is the spiritual realm and they are not physical animals and physical fish but rather fallenangels or “birds” and fallen man or “beasts”, etc.  In Genesis 2, it IS the physical realm or the actual animals and fish and birds that Adam (physical man) would rule over.  This is the realm we are familiar with.  They are different realms completely though from Genesis 1 (spiritual) and Genesis 2 (natural, physical)!

They are two completely different “mankind” from Genesis 1 and Genesis 2!  One is spiritual in Genesis 1 and one is physical or natural in Genesis 2.

Ok, with that background in place, think about marriage and the creation of offspring. The “husband” or male produces the “seed” and joins with the “wife” to produce offspring. This would mean that Genesis 1 male spiritual being is the leader and more powerful one and that the Genesis 1 female spiritual being is the more submissive one that is dominated or ruled over by the male spirit. Are you with me so far?

If so, just who are these “male” or dominate powerful spirit beings and “female” submissive spirit beings.

Well, the “female” spirit of Genesis 1 man is none other than “fallen” or natural mankind’s human spirit! It or “she” is controlled and taken into captivity from birth by who? Well, the husband or male (ruler or “father”) spirit of Genesis 1! Can you guess who this is? Who is the ruler of this present fallen world (still)? Who is the personification or “father of sin”?

Let’s look at some scripture to find out.

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. (John 8:44)

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. (1 John 3:8)

These verses are NOT METAPHORS!  Jesus was telling the absolute, solemn truth here!  The Devil REALLY WAS the “father” or “husband” of the unbelieving person he was talking to.  He was married to their spirit and controlled their spirit keeping it under the power of darkness so it was unable to see God and have any faith.  Amazing huh?  Sounds crazy?  Think about it a while.  It will come to you if you are open to the truth.

Satan is really Genesis 1 male Spirit! How he got that position is a whole other topic, but all indications show that he started good (maybe as Lucifer in Is 14) and sinned and became “darkness” and “evil”. He gained power and control of all Earth’s spiritual realm and all mankind’s spirits who are the “female” or submissive side of Genesis 1 mankind but also the physical beings (Adam) in Genesis 2. When he inhabits one, he is it’s “master” or “husband”.

Satan IS sin and the “father” or originator of ALL sin just like Jesus IS righteousness and the source of all righteousness!

This is very powerful because now you can go and read Romans 6-8 and anytime you see “sin” put the word “Satan” in there. Anytime you see the word “righteousness” put “Jesus” in there. Believers and unbelievers spirits (and souls) are the “wives” or “bride” and Jesus or Satan is the husband. Satan and his “wives” (unbelieving, natural spirits and souls) are under the power of darkness which is the law! This is sin and death which separates him and unbelievers from God.  God tells us in the OT that he “wrapped him (Lucifer/Satan) in darkness”.  I believe it is in Ezekiel but you can dig into it.  It’s really amazing.

Thus, at new (spiritual) rebirth, a person’s soul and spirit becomes joined or “married” to Christ who IS righteousness. The person is no longer attached to “sin” or Satan in any way (as Christ is now their husband FOREVER!) but their body will die because it is still part of the natural creation yet under the curse. It still has this power of death in it (sin/separation) and must die. But, the person is now fully ONE with LIFE and RIGHTEOUSNESS who IS CHRIST to live FOREVER!

Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.  (John 6:47)

Jesus is the TRUE Genesis 1 spiritual MAN (while Satan is the FALSE version of this fallen World) or the “male” part of God’s spirit that finally joins with natural man’s spirit (and soul) to make him WHOLE finally!

This is so amazing and I thank the Lord for finally revealing this connection. Suddenly so many things are coming together especially when God talks about marriage. He is REALLY talking about the union of a person’s soul/spirit with Christ or Satan. They are either a slave (married) to sin as unbeliever or a slave (married) to righteousness as believer with NO mixing EVER!  All the old creation is under the curse of darkness/separation and WILL DIE.  But, the GREAT news is that the blood has reconciled ALL creation and ALL creation will PASS THROUGH IT to be REBORN!

namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5:19)

Isn’t this amazing? This, my friend is the TRUE and most amazing sovereign plan of God!

Now, you can go back through Romans 6-8 and see a whole NEW story.  The truth!
