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 Kingdom’s Principles

February 10, 2013 at 3:21 am (Mile Stones) (, , , , , , , , , )

In all that must be done, the doer ranks in God’s sight, and ought to rank among his fellowmen, according to how he does it. The higher the calling, the more contemptible the man who pursues his own ends in it. And the humblest calling, followed on the principles of God, is a true and divine calling, be it handicraft, shopkeeping, shoemaking, or bookbinding. Oh, for the day when God and not king shall be regarded as the fountain of honor!   ~ George MacDonald

I and many other dear kindred spirits have spent much time asking God what if anything He would have us do or say to speak out against the lies and deception of our current government system.
Its a tangled web of issues and overwhelms my heart. What is the heart of God in “fighting for what’s ‘right'”?? Wisdom beyond the dictates of my experience and years of “learning” are essential to this issue, and my heart didn’t/doesn’t mind the wait for His instead of my own. For the issues that have risen to the “surface” for all to see, but covers the more deadly layers of each individual soul that stretches far beyond the years of my formal existence accounts for. A million desires for comfort have led to more deadly compromise than any “moral” outward appearing failure. For the second comfort and its illusionary attainability becomes the goal of any one individual, their very selves have contributed to the abominable mess every evil seeks to corrode. No one escapes this temptation. As all have sinned and fallen short, so to, every soul on earth seeks to be comfortable more than content. The “people rise up in fury” towards a government of their own making; either by avoidance, ignorance, or outright refusal to the One who says how best a soul can live.

I have found, that in my asking Him for the wisdom and courage to stand, He starts here; by showing me where I lost opportunities to do so in the ever so small things and graduated to the larger by rote. I see so many who are screaming their outrage at the evils of their government but failing to look within to that which is “governing” their own inner world. Its hypocrisy.
Its a sad state of soul for one to look down on a government with disdain – however “justified” because of its evil practices – while taking refuge in what it provides because of an unrighteous sense of “justice” being made by the taking of it.

(An example: cheating on tax returns because the gov’t over taxes in the first place)

To cheat the government is to cheat one’s self before the Author of Life and Goodness, Peace and Contentment. And cheats the God upon whom that government rest on His shoulders. One adds to the weight of the burden all the while thinking its “their right” to do so.

For myself to “do the right and true thing” before God, irregardless of whether it seems to make a difference, or esteems anyone else around me, or effects what I see as the larger picture, this is what MacDonald’s last sentence implies! To insult and go on and on with pointed barbs at government figures screams our own lack of trust in the God who is actually at the head of all events, governments, and actions. We have hardest to accept when God gives and takes away. The giving allures a comfort, the taking away gives birth to the offspring of contentment…in His will being done.

God cares little for what mankind see’s as their “rights” unless it gives over their selves to another. (Which essentially gives up a “right”)  Becoming non-essential to the accounting of it.

The balance is found only in Him, and we are either for Him or against Him. The blessed hope, grace, mercy that can not be taken away is that we all have the ability to speak with, and listen; learn from and submit to Him who does all things well…everyday. It will require all our energy, moving towards Him alone to know what and how any given moment is asking of us in “doing the right and true thing”. The Kingdom principles always apply to us, within and without first.
And if this is truth, then what would governments, households, and communities the world over look like?

We shall see one day, its a promise that grows contentment over comfort a hundred thousand fold in the soil of those who feed in the pastures of His Kingdom.

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
