Ever feel you are divided between a “good me” and a “bad me”?

Ever feel divided between a “good me” and “bad me”?
Do you ever feel like you have a “good” me and a “bad” me?
Like you have two separate and opposing people together as one. You know, two opposing “me’s” or spiritual bodies that make up one “I”.
This is something I struggle with as my “two me’s” are more apparent than most. Two days “up”, the next down. Two down and three “up”. Then, down again. Boy, it can make a person wonder if they are two separate people at times.
Maybe it isn’t full days, but more like experiences. One “good”, one “bad”. Either way it is like the old idea of having a “good angel” on one shoulder and “the devil” on the other.
So, if this happens to you, please know you are not alone.
Are we possibly carrying around both life and death at the same time and we are in the middle? Is that possibly what the Lord is revealing here?
“See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity Deut 30:15
When all these blessings and curses I have set before you come on you and you take them to heart wherever the LORD your God disperses you among the nations Deut 30:1
Thus, is it possible this is by God’s sovereign plan and the way we were created?
Could this be the meaning behind 2 Cor 4:10?
always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body 2 cor 4:10
Notice in “the body” there is both “life” and “Death”?
With that in mind, today as I was going through the Psalms (which I believe is the highest single, continuous truth), I noticed something powerful in verse 2:7 in the original Hebrew words. Check them out below and please notice the word I highlighted. I believe that this is a powerful revelation of God’s sovereign plan.
As I was considering this verse, I was drawn to the word “to-me”. I have noticed it a LOT in scripture. There is a “me” which is reserved for the Lord himself and there is a “to-me”. Then, it hit me like a ton of bricks.
We as individuals now In natural un-regenerated bodies are not yet full “me” (‘s), but are “on our way” and thus are still “to-me”‘s. Please ponder this until you see what I mean. This is critical to see the enormous magnitude of God’s plan.
First, we are now still “two” “me’s” (life AND death) that are split and are on the way to become a full “me” who is “above”. This “one above” is our father and he is the one that points to and connects the two separate “me’s” we are now down below.
“Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven Matt 23:9
“Do we not all have one father? Has not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously each against his brother so as to profane the covenant of our fathers? Mal 2:10
So, our ONE father is “above” in heaven and we are divided below into two parts.
Here is where it get’s strange in our natural thinking and the Lord really has to speak to us to “see” it.
Our father God speaking in Psalms 2:7 calls one of the “me’s” that are here below … “YOU”! See Psalms 2:7 again.
Please ponder this most IMPORTANT and powerful truth as “you” INCLUDES ALL PEOPLE but is accepted by FAITH. This begins to unravel the mystery of the words of Jesus how he said “I am in the father and the father is in me”.
Here are all the parts of Psalms 2:7 that are included in Gods sovereign plan of redemption (of the entire world). John 3:16-17
5) the day
(The action that occurs is I generated YOU and this occurs in “6” who is natural man)
So, let’s go back to our “divided individual” which “comes first”. This is the “to-me” or the “split me” that is below.
We “call” one “good” and one “evil” but truly both are needed just like “up” needs “down” and “right” needs “left”, “east” needs “west”, etc. We can NOT know one unless we have the other to compare it to. We truly know by “opposites”. Thus, please know that what we call “evil” or “bad” we must experience or how can we truly know what is “good”?
Here is another secret.
One part of the “to-me” is “you” and the other part is “I”.
THIS IS POWERFUL MY FRIEND! This is the POWERFUL truth that will UNITE ALL MANKIND! The words of Jesus of “I in you” and “you in me” will be fully revealed TO ALL!
Scripture reveals that the hearts of ALL mankind are knit together in the spiritual realms by our SINGLE, loving father!
God has created a POWERFUL triangle where one part is INSIDE the other part and ALL are interconnected! We do not know it until “I” (called “THE DAY” & “light”) generate “YOU” and this opens our true spiritual eyes to God’s powerful plan of redemption of ALL people! This is the “new birth from above” that Jesus tells Nicodemus about in John 3.
Thus, right now before we “see the light” that “I generated YOU”, we are “Missing” (true meaning of sin=”missing) the connector that connects the “two me’s” together. Again, this connector is “our father above” (who is “I the day”!) as he connects both sides together. Our father above IS THE LIGHT and the “Father of lights” and all truth. He is the very “helper” and the “spirit of truth” Jesus speaks of in John 16:13 and he WILL GLORIFY THE SON.
“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come John 16:13
“He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you John 16:14
He already has come but he just needs to reveal HIMSELF to us.
Is he doing that now? Also, he is everyone’s father they just don’t know it yet. Again, let’s look at Matt 23:9.
“Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven” Matt 23:9
WE truly are “tri-part” or 3 part beings of “Body and soul” that are “below” and a single SPIRIT (Father) who is ABOVE.
What about the word “to-me” in Psalm 2:7?
Our father above is the single, whole “me” that is the body of ALL people. Us below are the “to-me”. This has multiple meanings as we partially discussed already.
First, we are “divided” into two separate beings. One is life and one is “death”. This is the split or “double-mind” wavering back and forth that James mentions in James 1:8. It is also the “two of everything” that appears in scripture: “two covenants”, “double-minded”, etc. I guarantee if you find an answer for something in the word, I can find an “opposite” or opposing answer. One is life and one is death. One is living under the law for righteousness (death) and one is Jesus Christ IS our righteousness (life).
The second meaning of “to-me” is that we are RIGHT NOW on our way (UP) to “me” who is our SINGLE, WHOLE SPIRITUAL Father and also our REAL “ME” or true, whole spiritual self! This is the “ONE” above meaning there is NO division or separation in him at all!
We are on our on our way “to-him” who is really our TRUE “me”. We are all ONE in the SON.
Thus, a second meaning of “to-me” is that we are on the way TO become a (FULL) “me” which is 3 now but also ONE! One above and 2 below and when you marry those “numbers” together you also get “12”.
Do you know what happens when we become “12”?
In God’s time, we are old enough to “be married” to the “one above”. This is when our spiritual education starts. We become “married to the teachers” under the law.
And when He became twelve, they went up there according to the custom of the Feast Luke 2:42
This “marriage to the law” is what ultimately leads us to Christ who is the truth and our salvation.
But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed. Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith. Gal 3:23
See, we are blinded in our current bodies because we can NOT see what is truly going on in the hidden spiritual realms above and all around us. We think we are separate individuals because NOW our individual bodies are separate. However, the truth is that in our spirit and souls we TRULY are ONE as we are offspring of the ONE father above. IT is HIS SINGLE SOUL that HO– USES all of our individual souls and bodies. These are the “mansions” or “dwelling places” Jesus went to “prepare for us. John 14:3. This has already been done and we are IN THEM NOW but can’t fully see it yet.
As “individuals” you and I are each one of the me’s but are also included in the single, whole “YOU”. Thus, “you” RIGHT NOW are the other side of my split “me” below called the “to-me” or “two me(s)”! God our father himself is the THIRD ME which is above that BINDS (marries) the TWO together into one under his POWERFUL immutable law (ultimate irrefutable truth).
Believe it or not, by God’s sovereign power, we are all “in-laws” and God did it himself. This is why he talks about “union” and “marriage” so much. He married us all to himself and this made us into a 3 part being. We truly are “God’s in-law” whether we realize it or not. HE IS THE LAW and we truly are “MARRIED TO THE LAW”. See Romans 6-7.
Could this also why Jesus healed Peter’s mother “in-law”?
Do you realize the powerful truth of this?
ALL PEOPLE ARE INCLUDED in GODS POWERFUL PLAN OF REDEMPTION!
Your TRUE spiritual SELF is a TRI or 3 part being. It is a “body”, “soul” and “spirit”. What we don’t YET SEE is that only the BODY is individual. The SOUL is a SHARED soul (which God calls “you”) with ALL people but is partitioned into two parts. One is “you” and one is “me”. We truly do have a second “body” that contains “you” (all people!). Our single heavenly father is the Spirit that Jesus was referring to in Matthew 23:9.
This “tri-part” being is the “marriage of the two below with the ONE above”.
What do we get when we “marry two” with “one”? It’s so simple we miss it.
God bless my friend and know that YOU ARE INCLUDED in GOD’s awesome sovereign plan and full salvation. He already is married to “you” and “to-me”. The marriage supper is waiting but as we know many will refuse to come.
So, when you run into troubles today or find yourself wavering “back and forth” or “up and down” please know that “God truly has your BACK” and this is part of his plan for the spiritual maturity of us all.
We must all realize through faith that we are now “12” and that “you and I truly are ONE”!
that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me John 17:21
Hope you find rest and trust in “your” soul today knowing that I am there with you!
