One of my most favorite verses is Genesis 1:1 because I believe it includes all other verses within it.  Most people read the English translated (by man) version that says something like “in the beginning God created…”

Is that what scripture actually says?  Here are the original words in the original order.

Now, seriously, ask yourself who does the creating (spiritual birthing)?  “He “does, doesn’t he?  Is this the father?  I believe it is.

Who is birthed?

Is it not Elohim?   Is this the Son being “begotten” or spiritually born?

Check out Psalms 2

I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou [art] my Son; this day have I begotten thee Psalms 2:7

This is reiterated in Hebrews 1:5.

For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? Heb 1:5

Please  notice it is occurring on THIS day and is ongoing.  The entire old creation is being reborn into the new.   That’s something to celebrate today!

 

Ever wonder what single verse is the “universe”?

Check out Genesis 1:1. It’s an ongoing (never-ending) “in the begin inning”.

Is Genesis 1:1 the “uni-verse”? (single standalone verse)

 

We are and will be constantly be getting a  new heavens (location of spirit and soul) and Earth (location of body).  Please notice the “colon” at the end of the verse.  What is the purpose of a colon?

Doesn’t it separate what comes before from all that comes after?

Would that make Genesis 1:1 the “uni-(single) verse?

 

Have you ever been told that once a person “believes in Jesus” that the Holy Spirit will come and live inside that person?

Doesn’t this cause us to also believe that our own actions are causing God to do something?

Is that the way God works?  Or is it the other way around?

What does scripture say?  Do we cause the Holy Spirit to act or does God?

Let’s look at Acts 10:45 in the original words and see.Continue reading

Is the translated Bible a "book of magic"?

Is the translated Bible a “book of magic”?

The following verse has fascinated me since I first read it.

Acts19_19The original words say:

Enough YET of-the-ones THE about-acts practicing together-carry THE SCROLLS they-down-burned in-view of-all and they-together-pebble the values of-them and they-found of-silver MYRIADS(10,000) FIVE Acts 19:19 Westminster-Leningrad Codex

What exactly is "his blood"?

What exactly is “his blood”?

Good afternoon,

The last few days have been in intense scripture study and things about the “blood of him” and “soul of him” and “the flesh” have arisen.  Let’s take a look.

Is the “soul of all flesh” really the “blood of him”?  Leviticus 17:14

Could this also be “his soul” that he “laid down” “for the life of the world” and “on our heads” (Matt 27:25)?

Could this be related to “the woman” of Genesis 3?

Let’s consider these things together, shall we?

Blood of him

Blessings to you today.

 

If I were God, was all-powerful, and I truly loved all people and wanted them to be with me forever, how would I cause this to occur?

What if I made a person’s imperfection or what the Bible calls “sin” their “free ticket” to receive my OWN perfect righteousness and thus be with me forever?  Do you think they would be thankful when they found out about this free eternally good gift?

If I were God, would I have the power to do this?  Wouldn’t this be a “foolproof” plan?

Now, certainly, I am not smarter than God, right?Continue reading

Is God really making all things new?

Is God really making all things new?  Even right now?

Do you ever wonder what is going on right now all around us spiritually? 

What is God “up to” even right now as we watch TV with our family or go to work?

Many people say they “want to know what God is doing right now” or they “wish they knew what God wants them to do“.   “I just want God to be real to me right now in my everyday life”, is often heard.

Do they really want that?

Or is that something they just say in order to be perceived as pious or “religious”?

Well, let’s test that a bit. I am going to share what God has revealed to me that has allowed me to see RIGHT now what he is doing.

First, please prepare yourself.Continue reading

Ever feel divided between "good" and "bad"?

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.
