Are we seeing with Spiritual eyes?

I am still a Huge fan of the tv show “Fringe”. One reason is the ultimate possibililites that it shows of reality, and the other is the concept of another world? Now the obvious thinking of this is absurd to even realize but if we think of this in maybe in a different light, it is not to far off.
You see, what if we are actually living in two different worlds simultaneously as one! In fringe they are living one different life as two. But we are doing the first way!! Christians alas Spiritual beings are living in a humanistic body.

This may sound scifi but this is actually what we should be living on a day by day journey. Ever since our fall from grace with God, we are living in a humanistic world, but His life is still present in us through His sacrificial dying for us on the cross.

This concept is the hardest for the christian”s to understand, I believe.
Let me explain, We are letting our human characteristics lead us!! The only way that I can explain this is the concept that I have used in a previous blog of the Glove and the Hand. It is the Hand that controls the glove in all its actions, not the other way around.
Maybe there is something to that saying, Let Go and let God!
This is what maybe our problem is we have to do nothing!! We think that we as christian”s have to do something for God! It is God in US that acts according to His Will. Why do we have a problem with just sitting,resting, pausing,waiting,leaning on Christ. Do you realize that this is just what the Israelites did in the Wilderness for forty years!! They did not move until the Cloud moved in front of them. What was God’s idea for them to do while they waited for the Cloud(God) to Move? My guess is that they were meditated on His being! What did He represent,what was His plan, What was His desire? Sure He saved us from the Egyptians and their bondage, but
what was next? We look at everything that happens to us in our Physical eyes as good or bad experiences but we fail to look at everything through God’s eyes. If we are of Christ and have the Spirit of Christ then we can see Christ in our Spirit.

Just a side note. I am currently in a very long journey with Christ(It could be like a 40 yr journey) and Watchman Nee reading his Life study series of the Bible. I personally believe that Watchman Nee and his partner Witness lee in their Ministry of “Living Stream Ministry.org” is seeing the Bible in a Spiritual realm that it has created a indwelling in me!
I strongly encourage everyone to check it out! You can set it up to read as much as you would like to read in a day. It is for the entire 66 books of the Bible, I have started from the beginning in Genesis, I am now in Exodus. I guarantee that you see the Bible in a different Light!!

The Shadow

This title sounds like a comic book hero,doesn’t it!

Sorry, but it is not.

I am talking about something totally different, it is a shadow of someone.

Have you seen those black and white silhouettes of a person?  They could of been of anybody famous or it could of been of you that you made yourself!

To make a silhouette of yourself you have bright light shown on your profile, and picture is drawn on a piece of paper of your outline of your face or your entire body. This is only done as black and white picture.

This silhouette of you is actually the shadow of your being.  It is the same as the shadow that you see on the sidewalk as you are standing there in the daylight. Now this Shadow is not actually you per se, but it is actually a representation of you. If I know you,from experience and daily interaction with you, I can just look at that silhouette and tell it is you. You see when you are standing there in the sunlight, that shadow starts at your head and goes down to your feet, thus connecting it to you! also when you move, the shadow moves!

Christ has a Shadow, did you know that!!

You see, the old testament is the shadow of Christ!  I bet you never looked at the old testament like this before. But read the OT next time and see if you can see Christ in this silhouette!  You see, you won’t find it in the black and white letters of the old testament, you have to stand back and look at the whole silhouette! Can you see Christ’s attributes, His Love, His Mercy, His Grace,His Church, His Redemption, and His Recovery.

Everything that is written about in the OT is a representation of Christ!!

God is Awesome! He did not just abandon us after we chose the tree of knowledge, He still was showing us a picture of the Tree of Life even after we took a different path! WOW!

Since we did take that different path, Christ is still showing Himself to Us! Reading the OT, read it like Christ is showing himself to you through the  a silhouette or His shadow!!

Kingdom of God

What is it?

Where is it?

When does it start?

Who is the King?

Why is their a Kingdom?

I am going to tackle these questions in my blogs for awhile. It should be fun and enlightning!       join me, in a great journey!!

First, let us discuss the reason “Why is there a Kingdom?”

Now let me preface this study is that this is coming from the Christ believing person.

The bible tells about a Kingdom from Exodus to Revelation! Now you might ask the question right here : What comes first the King or the Kingdom?

My belief is that the King came first, because he says” I am that I am”!! So if we start with that then we then can go to the next step, the kingdom. After all what kind of king doesn’t  have a kingdom to rule?

God wanted to fellowship with someone of His own kind! Did you ever think about like that? After all isn’t this what we do when we are in LOVE! We stay around the person that we are admiring or that we have a desire to be with! God is particular!! NO!! Yes, you see God created us in his Own Image, but we disappointed him in the Fall. So Now He is bringing us back to His image.

This is process that we are in now, I believe that we as His people are at the stage of making the journey of coming out of Egypt just like the Isrealites did in the exodus.

Let me speak to this briefly, I do not know where you are in your believing but when you are on a journey such as I have been on and you look,search,ask,pray and read as I have, you see! I have been shedding the scales on my spiritual eyes,(you notice that I am shedding, not have shed,meaning that I have not shed all of them off. I have a long ways to go). My eyes are seeing that other believers are seeing Christ as the real CHURCH! People that I am in contact with in a smaller group than the whole world that I am also in contact with is the W.W.W.. With the unseen people and words that come across this medium has brought me to the conclusion that maybe this is what God is meaning for us to be!? You might question this thought, but let me explain. You see if we were to believe in the unseen, or the non-understanding of the world of the internet, as opposed to the seen world and our believe that we have to do something or be something of the seen world!  We might be more intune with HIM. My experiences through this world of the blogging,video’s, the testimonies, the true feelings of people has brought about the REAL CHURCH!

Now, back to the Kingdom, The Israelites coming out of Egypt represents us dieing to humanness, as like when Christ died on the cross.  I believe that I am beginning to see people shed their “Adam” and become the bride that He is seeking.

This kingdom,  his people,  the Church, or His Bride, is what this is all about.

Christ wants us to be apart of His Kingdom,His people,His Church and His Bride.

Let me make a note here that might come with some issues. The Big Question is how we grow as a Kingdom? We will tackle that later.
