Fascinating, But Illogical
Isn’t that our mind set apart from His spirit, being allured toward something so much more real but almost instantly dismissing it as illogical? Fear once again kicking in and keeping us constrained to a three dimensional realm although we have within our spirit “slipped the surly bonds of earth and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings.”
It stands to reason that any level of understanding of a ‘realm’ so completely different from our own requires a total rethinking (transformation) of our view of reality. The vast difference between what appears to be but isn’t really real, is much akin to, a clouded mind seeing nothing but what the matrix wants us to see/believe.
Is it true or simply a fable, Jesus having any credibility in telling us the truth, that which has the power to free our earth bound limited thinking and liberating us from deep within, making room for us to venture out into so much more that is already ours, but not yet fully realized?
Doesn’t it say that although we’re in this world, we’re not of it, and, that we have been raised up in Christ far above this earthly realm of existence seated in Christ at the right hand of God the Father?
We are told that faith only operates in the absence of direct, observable evidence: “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” “For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.”
Within the Old Testament temple language the natural illustration being but a metaphor for a much greater reality was as follows, there was an outer court, an inner court and then the scared of all, the Holy of Holies.
In both of the outer courts there was available to the ones working there a natural light freeing them to do what was assigned to them, but in entering the holiest of all which by the way, was assigned to only one man/priest who had gone through the most stringent screening process to not only protect himself but the people.
Within this setting there was NO outside natural illumination; God himself would be the light, as I said, this early shadowy picture points to a light that is now our only source of life for living, resident within each of His sons. This is all part of our birth-right and the father of lies-religion, is determined that the sons of God will not discover their impetus for ruling and reigning IN this life!
From my continuing and increasing knowing of whose I am, I can truthfully tell you, Father is not in a hurray to do what he will do, as it was with his only begotten son Jesus, having him as it were hidden away for 30 long years in obscurity, then permitting him to walk out into the remaining three years, what kind of marketing strategy is that?
These were as in all things, our father demonstrating that those 30 years of obscurity were not wasted time, in Christ there was being established so much more than meets the eye, and like wise is being done within those he has sovereignly appointed to a similar obscurity.
Without knowing the true source of our life for living, we so easily loose heart, grow faint, our knees begin to buckle, our arms and hands begin to grow limp, much like a plant that has begun to shrivel up only because of its daily required need for water, light being omitted.
Everything that He has NOT planted will BE uprooted; he is allowing the tares to remain in amongst the wheat whereby we will always have the freedom to choose His way over any other way that would appear to be right.
