Internals and Externals

It’s amazing how we gravitate towards externals. Isn’t it so much easier to paint the fingernails that show signs of malnutrition but we just “see” how marred (different/not perfect) they are. So we cover it up. We invent miraculous ways to sharpen the outter image. God made the human body so able to withstand such poison and punishment, truly its a wonder that the last three generations have reproduced at all much less lived past the age of 25. I’ve been to a number conferences, they were not at all medical in nature. Most were spiritual, for some ministry or topic related as a retreat. At one in particular, a medical doctor took the podium and began to speak about the incredible work God did in every cell, every system in our bodies. The room pulsated with awe, hushed, most of us barely dared breathe, yet all the sudden we couldn’t help but pay close attention to the sound of our breath, the rhythm of our hearts, the blinking of our eyes and the wonder that we were able to zero in on at least a dozen functions of our bodies at once without any problem at all. The best computer in the world still has light years to come close to what God made our bodies and minds capable of. (I do not believe He will ever allow computers,or anything man makes, to come close, either)

The number of the things capable of killing the human body instantly – is small. The number of things that will slowly but surely kill it over time…well its never been calculated. Let’s just say, it’s beyond the number of people alive on the earth today. It’s likely you who are reading this right now have put more poison in your body than pure and simple nutrients. There’s no blame involved here, 90% of people don’t really know it. Of those that do, about 2% of those really discipline themselves to the degree nesassary to begin the process of letting the mechanisms God created to literally cure and heal itself, just like our skin does with a minor cut. Yet everybody must be blind not to see the internal effects of the external shell we live in. Bones with no nerves ache, cartlage and ligaments waste away, memories completely shut down. The number of children alone in the last decade that read 3 as an E, is mind boggling. These things are NOT “normal” as God designed them. Normal to our culture, yes, but only due to the dullness that comes from ignoring the signs of internal malfunction by cutting off the warning signal (pain) with poisonous over the counter pain killers or worse chemical “circuit-cutters” called pharmaceuticals. There’s a pill for every ill. The “easy” generation is here.

The point here is this: we cannot put external “fixes” on and expect the internal to go along. God will not change the rules of function. The sun must come up from the east and set in the west, no matter how convenient we may think it would be to reverse it; or if you will, how inconvenient the eastern rise may be to us on any given day. God cannot change who He is, and what He has made IS who He is. If we want the skin He created us to have we must feed the body that which it requires, but most importantly, we must stop putting the skin damaging stuff INSIDE the body first. The skin is the bodies last filtration system. If you see a breakdown in it somewhere, the problem within has likely been going on for years and by now has corrupted every system. The same goes with our spiritual skin. If sin is unable to be overcome, it’s likely the internal system has been grossly overlooked (I’m not talking strickly psychology, but physiology and most importantly – mentality). We are TRANSFORMED by the RENEWING of our minds. Is your mind made up? How changeable is it? And how willing are you to simply act on its Creators blueprint for its health? (In other words, act on trust alone and do what He says without hesitation) Do the statistics above begin to make sense?  Does His Word? FEW are they who travel down the road of internal correction and realignment to its Creators design. There’s no easy button this way. Sleep will be lost. The very concept of comfort and convenience will fade away from the motivation center of our being. The concept of free, meaning you pay nothing and get something, will find itself an endangered species of the mind. The very thought that one can pick and choose what things they believe in God about, will begin to cause actual physical pain, due to the nature of it dysfunctional motion to our souls. The correct order of believing is… Who is God?, what does He say?, what does He believe? – “now, self, go along with Him whether you feel like it or not“, the basic muscle group is now – trust. It’s the brains of our faith – trust. The heartbeat is action. Everybody knows without brain activity and a heartbeat no body is alive. The mind must be in constant transformation (internal) or the heartbeat will be irregular. Hense, the body will be in dysfunction (external). Getting your stomach reduced to stop eating, will in effect only make you eat more with less of what God gave you to process the food. Saying “I believe in Jesus” while your actions say you do not is a lie. Like saying, “I ate yesterday” when in fact you consumed no food. No one may know that you lied, but God did. Gods ears reach to the furthest reaches of silence and sound. He made us, we cannot lie to Him, only to ourselves and others.

My granddaughter is reading an interesting book. It’s called Dumb Bunny. I’ve no interest in who the author is, save I know where they got their theme. (Satan). She asked to read it to me today. Delighted, ipulled up a chair. It starts out in diary form of a child. They called a classmate, dumb bunny, and their teacher said to stop. So, the child concludes, that they will just say it in the mind, because the mind is silent. My six year old granddaughter is being indoctrinated by illusions! So, I say to her, as she reads (she is giggling at the sneaky nature of the text) “Ahhh, but God hears the mind, huh Izzy?” My eyes fill with tears even now, as my precious granddaughter, already six years old, looked at me with defiance and said, “Sooo?” Shrugging her shoulders as if there was not one merit in thinking of God. But let me show you where there is hope. She then felt so uncomfortable reading this book after that, that she quickly lost interest. I could SEE the conscience God gave her making her squirm. I praised God for it! She’s not broken, just illiterate. Uneducated to the God who created her, but she is only six and God in that moment woke her up just a little. I pray He will invade her world! Passion for the truth to invade her external need to externally “treat” what can only be internally healed. God beamed His Light into her mind with my words, and she was uncomfortable with herself! Glory to God!

There is no silent mind to God, the sounds of our internal world are sonically booming in heaven. Our internal is the key. Actions only speak louder than words because the shouting from the mind will vibrate the whole body. The word – heart – in Hebrew means the mind, thoughts, that which makes up the substance of our actions.

Create in me, a clean heart, O God, and RENEW a right spirit within me.

This Psalms speaks a thousand words, it focuses correctly; on the e-ternal and in-ternal, for the key to the ex-ternal and temporal. Physically we will represent what spiritually is the center of all things. We can start taking vitamins, but if we don’t eliminate the poison from our diet, the vitamins will do us very little good.

In this day and age, how can this message not be relevant? How can we possibly not begin to stop treating this topic like a Sunday school lesson and start treating it like the very substance of our living? Join me, dear fellowsheep, in dropping to our internal knees and repeatedly asking for God to teach us the vital importance of the internal. For the courage to be an internal Light in an external world, yes, to its discomfort!

The Best Quote – Ever. Eternal.

September 15, 2014 at 3:36 am (Remodeling the Mind) (, , , , )

image

Eternally…and Infinitely the best quote ever!

After all the commentary…extrapolation…songs written…poem’s penned. After every word is, was, and will be said…every Word Yeshua (Jesus) said will have been the Best.

I can only think of one thing that ranks up with the above…

image

As to the quote at the top…the worst thing one could think is. ..”Yes, He did what He set out to do”. If it gets reduced to that – one has missed every Word Yeshua said. Therefore is missing the key to following Him.

“It is finished. ..”

Those Words were spoken in intimate conversation between a Father who sent His Son. It was a relational whisper of total surrender. .. it was pure obedience. .. not goal setting, not strap pulling, setting ones mind to their goal. (This is human reasoning) But a bending every ounce of His humanity to His Father’s will. .. all the way to His last Breath. Trusting the Father. .. that whether He breathed again or never did again fill His lungs that the Father knew His best, the best and would wait for nothing else but His “Well done. ” That just like all those before Him, He took the Father at His Word; that the Promise was true. .. that every rainbow would always tell the truth! Adonai, Elohim, God… keeps His promises!

Yeshua exampled exactly what He asked us to do by asking us to ‘Follow Him’. All the way. .. without one falter. So that in every falter in every follower after; the only thing the Father hears is. ..”It is finished. ” the only thing the Father sees is Him. That is why those Words are the best quote even before the second one posted here. Without the former. .. the latter would never have been true. Those Words fulfilled every Word before and all that would come after. .. forever. I believe in Hebrew He did actually say. ..”It is fulfilled.” “It” – being the Father’s will. ..a heart, a Being of pure Love… that never intended to let His creation go.

The Conscience; A Holy Fire

February 21, 2013 at 2:57 am (Remodeling the Mind) (, , , , , , , )

image

What’s the use of repentance on earth, when hell will do just as well?

In those few words lay the germ of preference for hell of poor souls, enfeebled by wickedness. They will not have to do anything there, only to moan and cry and suffer forever, they think. Its not so much the sorrow or remorse of repentance they dread; its the action it involves; it is the having to be different, behave differently, that they shrink from. And they have been taught to believe that this will not be required of them there; that their wills will not be called into action.

But, tell them that the fire of God, both around them and within them, will compel them; that the “torturing” Spirit of God in them will keep their consciences awake – and hell will lose its unnatural fascination for them. Tell them that there is no refuge from the compelling love of God, except that love itself, that if they make their bed in hell, they shall not escape Him; and then, perhaps, they will have some true perception of the fire that is not quenched. If not now under the sunshine of heaven, then in the torture of the awful world where there is no light but that of the conscience, perhaps repentance may break through the dark as light; as seen as if perhaps for the first time.

~ George MacDonald ~ 1868

I have never heard of the conscience serving such a purpose in this light before!! Upon reading this I could not help but praise God that He made me so that my inner light would flame and become a blaze when I do that which does not love, live, and praise! What a gift!! Totally unmerited, and who? Who would ever think to ask for it? There is no one who does not desire for the weight of a wrong to be cast away as if it never was! Our culture fairly worships the idea of numbing out the pain of all we do that hates instead of loves. There’s a pill for every burdening conscience, every form of its manifestation. If the doctor won’t prescribe one, then the local drug/liquor store is at your service! Heck now we have marijuana stores! Next heroine and cocaine! Why not?

Then there’s the morbid fascination with “the living dead, walking dead, vampires, werewolves, the “un”-dead, horror movies” wrapped in the cloak of “fun” as if hell is some stretch of the human imagination! As if to say: “Hey no worries! That which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!” Does anyone else hear the bottomless pit of evil’s invitation in such a cliche? Almost every movie is now drenched in the deceptive fluid of the “beauty of a conscience free “life”! But Life without a conscience does not exist! Its not dead, it will never, has never and can never be! God doesn’t make Life without conscience! The “un”-dead, “living” dead is a human full of denial’s made up lack of conscience! It comes from their minds devoid of their beating hearts!

Oh the many ways we make up devices to call an inconvenience the very thing that was meant to point us to our Savior!! Our conscience is the LIGHT!

As always when I read MacDonald some truth from Gods word gets blown up in vivid color and high definition! Countless scriptures start falling down from previous readings (sometimes countless) in confirmation! Words of Yeshua (Jesus), His disciples/followers, His prophets, words God the Creator of all Life told them to say, for our conscience’s sake! It may “offend”, but I am glad to submit to its lack of comfort now…for later it will be rendered needless where I will spend eternity in the Light of His countenance! For now I will consider it a gift of Light that no darkness can suppress!

Matthew 3:11-12 – John the Baptist speaking…
It’s true that I am immersing you in water so that you might turn from sin to God; but the One coming after me is more powerful than I – I’m not worthy even to carry His sandals – and He will immerse you in the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) and in fire. He has with Him His winnowing fork; and He will clear out His threshing floor, gathering His wheat into the barn but burning up the straw with unquenchable fire!
**see also Luke 3:16-17; Mark 9:42-49

Matthew 13:41-43 – Yeshua speaking…
The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will collect out of His Kingdom all the things that cause people to sin and all the people who are far from Torah (His Teachings); and they will throw them into the fiery furnace where people will wail and grind their teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let him hear!

Isaiah 1:31
The strong will be like tinder and the idol maker like a spark; both will burn together, and no one will put them out.

Isaiah 27:4
I have no anger in Me. If it gives Me briars and thorns, then, as in war, I will trample it down and burn it up at once; unless it takes hold of My strength, in order to make peace with Me, yes to make peace with Me. (put conscience in for the word it)

Isaiah 66:42
As they leave, they will look at the corpses of the people who rebelled against Me. For their worm will never die, and their fire will never be quenched; they will be abhorrent to all humanity.

Jeremiah 7:20
Therefore, here is what Adonai Elohim (the Lord God) says: “My anger and fury will be poured out on this place, on men, animals, trees in the fields and produce growing from the ground, and it will burn without being quenched.”

John 1:5
The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not suppressed it.

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤

Separation Undone!

September 27, 2012 at 1:07 am (Poems) (, , , , , , , , )

Inspired by Psalm 107

What but the Lord of me
Could come and rebuild this frame I see
Lo better and more sturdy if not full up of His beauty
Better than when in ruin I fell?

Such a view – sweeping
Of a window in a Presence keeping
Vastly granite mountains teeming
Over a valley beaming

LIGHT refracted a’sparkle off all
Everywhere a vision can fall
Dew dancing upon the blades
Singing up a Restore’ers praise!

Wild creatures pulsating peace
Come! Partake! This royal feast!
All bounty a day can give!
Water unending, nourishment sending
A soul into the Heart of its rest

See the cascades of Joy
Oft and yonder the Kings employ
Swooping down in enchanting dives
To all that death and dying strives

LIFE! The infinite key
Of all thats noteworthy left of me
Held upon a hole-scarred hand
With Love in reverse timeless sand

All flowing back to The Master plan
Always the end was the means!
Held here in this precious end
So onward can the song now send
Me ever into a shining Son
Remade upon His victory won!

All that is separate undone!
