The Spirit: The Road Back to God (Step 3)

THE PILGRIMAGE JOURNEY OF ADAM

Congratulations, you have made it to the final stage of the MBS-Strategy, this is something to be celebrated. Words carry the power to stir our hearts and change us if we allow them to, and throughout this journey with us you have been confronted with many words. Some were used to paint a picture for your imagination, others were used to empower you with knowledge.

In the Holy Bible we read that faith comes by hearing, and hearing comes by the word of God. The Holy Bible also states that faith is the HOPE we have in an unknown reality and that without faith it is impossible to please God the Father.

The final stage of the MBS-Strategy will be both a warning and a blessing. God says that a harsh word from a friend is better than a kiss that has been concealed and that by an open rebuke a wise man is made even wiser. (Proverbs 27:5)

This is what the LORD says, “Stand at the crossroads and look. Ask for the ancient paths: ‘Where is the good way?’ Then walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” – Jeremiah 6:16

Take this with an open heart and humble yourself before the throne of God and you will see love and life through His eyes.

THE FINAL STEP

Do you believe everything you’ve been hearing, reading, or thinking? I have some news for you, not everything they say is true or good for you.

It’s ignorance (not knowing) that blinds us from the truth. Just think about it. You don’t know what you don’t know. How would you know?

If your parents never taught you (disciplined you) how to be a civilized citizen in society, then you would be like an animal taking more than you ought to. If we are unable to discern between the truth and a lie, even a half-truth, or a white lie, then we will be fooled into making decisions that do more harm than good in our families.

Living with a lack mentality will cause us to reach for more than we ought to, which will create more responsibilities in our daily lives than we have time for. Living with this lack mentality drives anxiety and other health problems that can/will lead to destruction. Hundreds and thousands of God’s people worldwide are dying as a result of this.

As it is written, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you as My priests. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children.” – Hosea 4:6

The worlds economic leaders need consumers. Fans who will fork over their hard-earned cash to keep the wheels of the machine turning.

These corporations know exactly how to get your attention and how to keep it. They know what you want, what you need, and what you like to hear. They know you better than you do.

The pharmaceutical industry is one of the largest corporations in the world and it’s simple, sick people need medicine. But why are people starting to raise questions about the ethical practice of business and medicine in the healthcare industry? Why are we seeing our children diagnosed with diseases like cancer, obesity, and depression at the age of 9?

Even with the advances in health technology, we are still without a good solution to problems like HIV and Obesity. The pills and potions we use act as band-aids for the psychological and physiological side effects set in motion by the Industrial Revolution, forcing many of us to work like slaves in a system designed to drive the fear of lack, loss, and death into society.

The pills and potions they are providing as a cure for the fear cause “other side effects”, and these require more pills and potions to treat.

It’s a crazy downward spiral into something we call health care. But do they really care for us? Do they really want a cure for the suffering?

The answer is no. No, they don’t want a cure. They want power and they will stop at nothing to control money, your emotions, your health, and your free will. If you don’t take this stage of training to heart you will conform to the norm.

God wants to set His people free from slavery, that includes you, and it includes me. In unity. The body cannot function if it’s been divided.

CHOOSE LIFE OR DEATH

You can choose this world and stay in the rat race like the rest. Or you can take a leap of faith into the unknown and choose God’s way.

Choose Freedom and Health

Once you know God intimately you will be set free from the lack mentality and it’s imperative that you get an understanding of the final stage of this journey if you truly want to break free.

The spiritual realm is governed by spiritual laws, much like gravity, and if you defy them, they will break you. Trust me, you don’t want to see that.

We can influence the spiritual realm through our thoughts and actions, and our choices will have a rippling effect on the world around us.

God gave us this gift of free will to choose (love), and it’s our choice what we do with this power.

With great power comes great responsibility.”

Spider-man, Uncle Ben

Many of us, through ignorance, choose selfishly as we reach for more with a lack mentality. This desire to have more makes us grab more responsibilities than what we signed up for.

This can make us go into a state of panic, we can get frustrated, angry, and even depressed. Ultimately, when we live with a wanting heart we will fall down the rabbit hole into the dark.

This is what God says: “See, I set before you life and prosperity, death and destruction.

“For I command you today, love the Lord your God, walk in obedience to him, and keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you are entering to possess. But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and you worship them, then I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess. This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I, God, have set before you, life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. Love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to Him. For He is your life, and He will give you many years in the land He swore to give to your forefathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” – Deuter. 30:15

God is sitting in front of you like Morpheus in The Matrix. In one hand he has a blue pill, and in the other a red pill. He is giving you a choice, and you can either choose to live with a blueprint of what the world tells you is desired, or you can choose the unknown red pill, where you surrender your old life and follow Him.

The Bible says it is the knowledge of God that brings the power of God down to earth and thereby we are changed into the image and likeness of the Messiah who was sent from heaven to represent God the Father here on earth. Knowing Jesus is the closest thing to knowing God, but God has gone one step further than our minds can even imagine.

If you choose to take the red pill and you perform the physical actions that go hand in hand with these thoughts you will personally learn who God is throughout your life as He is represented in and throughout all of creation. During your walk to the promised land you will personally get to know God more and more if you thirst for Him, seek Him, and pray to Him.

You see the truth is God doesn’t just want you to know Him through stories in the Bible, God wants you to be known by Him in an intimate dance between two lovers who are united as One in trust, love, joy, and purity of heart.

Knowing God the Father goes far beyond the comprehension of the human mind and no book or preacher can love you like He does.

Think about it… How foolish would it be of me to think I can show you who God is through my written words? How can I even fathom the God who is in all things, and through all things, and in who all things hold together? Is it possible?

KNOWING GOD

Knowing God is the Highest Consciousness we can wish to attain in our spiritual journey back to Heaven. When we start to listen to His voice every moment of the day, our lives will start to flourish and grow. Most of us make decisions based on past experiences, and this fear then keeps us from living the life God has planned.

I know the Word of God can be intense, even frightening, but it’s important to know: God is not up there in the sky watching over us with a whip. He loved His own creation enough to give them free will; freedom of choice and speech.

The love of God is perfect and it is definitely not unfair. It is our own foolish choices that cause so much despair. Just think about it.

As it is written, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love drives out all fear. So then, love has not been made perfect in anyone who is afraid, for fear has to do with punishment.

All parents should know this about God’s love. You need to give your children the freedom to make their own choices, but you also need to give them boundaries; warn them, teach them, and give them wise advice. They need to learn from their mistakes and then get back up again.

As a good parent, your only job is to lead by example; your child will follow you if they respect you and look up to you for wisdom.

It’s the same with Adam and Eve. God told them the story of the birds and the bees, and then He warned them about the consequences. But you know how kids are. We always want to test how far we can go. How far we can push the limits.

As it is written, “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, ‘Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but only of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.‘”

God knew this, and He prepared a good plan. I mean, He is God, His plan involves grace. Jesus Christ came to show us God’s face.

The old cunning serpent asked Eve if God really said that, and then he tempted Eve to become like God by saying, “God knows that in the day you eat of it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”

These deceiving and tempting words made Eve doubt God and she ate of the fruit and then gave to her husband, and he also ate.

Did they really die?

Adam and Eve are made in God’s image and likeness, and God is Spirit, the Breath of Life. Adam and Eve walked in harmonious unity with God in a place called Eden (See Genesis 2:8-11). Hebrew Scholars found that the root word for Eden is “pleasure”, and it comes to no surprise that pleasure is also the root word for Heaven or Paradise. So what exactly happened here?

Adam and Eve were separated from God when they doubted His Word and fell from His grace. The pride of their hearts gave them the desire for power and knowledge, and so they ate and became like God. Their eyes were opened, and they were filled with shame. In that moment, they became an self-aware ego (Humanity).

They died spiritually. They became nothing more than the beasts of the field. Unknown and disconnected from the eternal Christ.

Now in this disconnected state they were no longer living in unity with the all-sufficient God of the Universe who held ALL THINGS together through His grace. They were now exiled from Eden to work the land and fend for themselves.

As it is written, “By the sweat of your brow you will eat bread, until you return to the ground—because out of it were you taken. For dust you are, and to dust you shall return.” – Gen. 3:19

DISCONNECT FROM GOD

Mankind fell from God’s grace and were exiled. This Esoteric Bible story is a mysterious parable about something much deeper that took place in your heart and mine. Humans are rebellious by nature, doubting what we know to be true, acting from a place of pride, ignorance, and choosing to be disobedient to the law.

Adam and Eve are representations of the masculine and feminine qualities of God and together they represent all of humanity and not just two naked people who walked around a forest eating fruits, even the forbidden kind.

You were born into this material world already separated from God. If you are disconnected from His Spirit, you will make decisions based on your own feelings and desires. You will be driven by the lower consciousness to survive.

For this reason, I’m writing to you and the body of Christ: Open your heart and soul. Jesus Christ wants to reconcile you to God.

Every single time you make a decision based on lack, fear, or pride you will cause destruction in your own life and the lives of others and that is not what love is about. That is why Jesus Christ died on a cross to demonstrate His love for us.

As it is written, “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh, the desires of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not from the Father but from the world. The world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God remains.”

What is the will of God? Well, in short, the will of God is that you and every other human being be reconciled with Jesus Christ through His gift, the Holy Spirit, but there is much more to this than a single event. That is partly why I have broken down the content into steps; because it’s all interconnected. He is in all things.

As it is written, “Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil. And now, lest he reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever…” – Genesis 3:22

RECONCILED IN CHRIST

How do we fix the problem? The answer is quite simple. But the process/cure will not be. Jesus Christ is the tree of life we must reach for.

Jesus said, “Follow me. Those who have seen me have seen the Father who has sent Me.”

The funny thing about modern-day Christianity is that people are still trying to convince others about who Jesus Christ is, and that is all good, but I think everyone knows the name of Jesus and they either accept Him or reject Him.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.”

It is only through unity with the Spirit of Christ that we can become just like God and thereby multiply what God started 2000 years ago when He planted His Seed into the earth. The Spirit of God searches all things, even the hidden things of the heart and He is the one who will lead you, clean you, and prepare you for the Bridegroom.

“For who among men knows the things of a man, except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so, no one knows the things of God, except God’s Spirit. But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by God.” – 1 Corinthians 2:12

We follow God by following the One who came to show us the Father, the Holy Spirit of God, the Son, Jesus Christ. He is the Messiah who will lead us through the wilderness back to the promised land if we trust Him as our Shepherd.

But do take note, not every person reading this will be ready to receive as their ground is not ready to receive the Seed. Sometimes you first need to go through darkness to experience the goodness of God and see the Light, and then you will understand what it means to be blind.

As it is written, “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.” – John 6:44

There is much more to this ancient journey than what meets the eye. Therefore I have dedicated my time in this season to create a tool He can use to draw people back to Him.

As soon as Jesus was baptized, heaven opened, and the Spirit of God came upon Him as a dove. Then a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17

If you want to know God as your Shepherd, Provider, Protector, and Healer, then you need to take the first step towards Him, and He will take 99 steps to be with you. He desires you.

It’s time to leave your old life behind you as you walk into the water. It’s time to be set free from the slavery that is found in Egypt, this economic system that is build on lies and empty promises.

It’s time to take the red pill as you allow the Word of God to open your eyes, ignite your faith, and refine your heart; One with God.
