As a former atheist and passionate believer in writers like Acharya S. who propose that the story of Christ is a reformatted pagan myth, I understand and appreciate their appeal. What I aspire to present in this post is not a religion to replace their teachings; but a freedom from ego-driven delusions—and yet at the same time a bondage to the will of The Creator, our divine Spiritual parent in Heaven.
How many reasons can you come up with NOT to believe in Jesus’ words in The Bible? Have you seen films like Zeitgeist that provide “experts” and researchers theorizing a great “Christ Conspiracy,” in which Jesus never existed? How about bad experieces with “good Christians” who were anything but that?
If you have, and you believe like I used to, please have a look and some honest critiques of Zeitgeist and Acharya S.—or even take a shot at a $1000 cash prize—to see significant holes in their theories.
And if you feel drawn to, continue to dig in your spiritual journey towards the HEART of God, not the WORDS of researchers who present their own personal biases and agendas as honest research; or for that matter dead-letter Scriptural dogmas and religious mandates without spiritual anointing.
Behold, the kingdom of God is within you. -Luke 17:21
When I was not quite a believer in, and passionate but mostly unsuccessful follower of Jesus Christ, I saw the only Christian movie that genuinely blew me away, Jesus of Nazareth. It is spectacularly acted, very well-produced, and has a profound anointing upon it that shows the heart of God outside of the lock and stone systems we find in most religions, Christian and otherwise, throughout history.
As Christ said, it was not he who did the miracles, but the Father in him. Therefore it is not our ego that matters, but rather the Will of God and His/Her wishes. This is the bondage I spoke of at the beginning. It may be uncomfortable, certainly at first; but if you believe an infinitely wise and loving God exists; and you’ll look into your own heart and mind with any objectivity, do you really think you can do better?
Or even more profoundly, what do you think about Jesus’ words that you shall do even greater things than he did? I for one, look forward to manifesting that!
My heart goes out to the family and friends I have in Colorado, across America, and the world at large who see the terrible things that evil people and “spiritual wickedness in high places” are doing today.
In a stark and surprising contrast to this disaster, there was a shooting in Aurora, CO just months ago that could have proven deadly to more people but was ended quickly by an legally armed Church attendee. Yes, the movie shooter was protected in body armor, but if one or two people began returning fire, would he have been distracted enough to be tackled by other people?
Despite the “corny” nature of the question, we should also ask, what would Jesus do here? Would he have cast out spirits that were affecting the man? Would he have spoken the words of God to bring the man to repentance and change his actions?
Can we acquire those abilities and, “do greater things” than even He did?
I do believe these things are possible, and as Christ said, “prayer and fasting” is the means to increase our abilities; and that ONLY by doing so can we deal with the powerful spiritual entities at work in this realm.
It is worth knowing that Mr. Romney has made his thoughts on the matter known:
I’ve been confused by a strange mental block I’ve had recently. Getting a new post out has been impossible–couldn’t even sign onto WordPress. Looking at my admin page I now see that this is my 666th post….
To me this is a message—but more like a clarion call—to transcend the physical realm and “the beast” symbolized by 666. Along with this are the negative, destructive emotions, thought patterns and “beastly” actions that are brought on by the chaos of our physical reality and the spirits at work within it.
It’s easy to get excited, scared or anxious when we see the incredibly disturbing events taking place around us. It’s tempting to fall into rage, become jaded with cynicism, or be shaken by fear. But we are made to walk in another Kingdom, a world in which those emotions—and the spirits that produce them—are put under foot, forever.
A very powerful yet simple prayer can produce an incredible effect for you: “The spirit of anger/regret/sadness (or other emotions for which you seek relief) that is affecting me is hereby bound by the Spirit of Jesus Christ (that’s the important part) and removed from my mind, body and spirit!”
Be careful though, you are not the powerful one in this equation, Christ is. If your ego lights up and you decide to start playing spiritual wizard you could get into real trouble. CHRIST and HIS NAME are the important parts here, HE is the one doing the work.
Jesus is distilled Spiritual Perfection; and as previous posts about cymatics, reality and vibrations have theorized, when His Spirit and the PERFECT VIBRATIONS that accompany it are present, then other physical/spiritual forms are eliminated by both the laws of Spiritual Authority and simple physics—like oil and vinegar they cannot co-exist.
Hopefully I’m not the only one for whom that makes sense.
We have no choice but to choose. By default, these choices must include our views on God and religion–there is no other way–we must choose, we cannot simply exist without an opinion.
We either decide that there is a Creator behind this creation, or we believe in some form of infinite evolution, a “New Agey” theory about consciousness or some variant thereof.
If we decide that life is too grand, complex and beautiful to just happen, or we have had moments that defy logic and must be the result of some kind of higher power, or we agree that there is a God, but we aren’t sure what religion is The True Religion, we are left with two primary choices: begin a difficult and challenging quest to find The Truth or choose to live our lives in a disappointing state of ignorance.
If you’re on the path towards God (whatever that means) and are open to the philosophy and potential divinity of Christianity you may encounter a growing volume of research that says that the man known as Jesus never actually existed.
To be perfectly honest, I was actually quite enamored with this theory for a considerable period of time. Films like “Zeitgeist,” books like “The God Who Wasn’t There,” and researchers like Michael Tsarion and David Icke had essentially convinced me that the life of Jesus Christ was simply a new literary version of pagan demigods, Sumerian legends/religion, and other spiritual figures of ancient lore.
The theories of this “no Jesus” camp center around the belief that there have been multiple Gods and demigods throughout history that were crucified, resurrected, walked with 12 disciples and a multitude of other factors that fit the “Christ template.” For more, please see Zeitgeist, and books by Acharya S. or the aforementioned authors.
If you are like I once was and believe that religions have been strapped onto mankind’s necks to cage us rather than inspire and free us, please hold your judgement until you’ve had a look at a following video or visit ZeitgeistChallenge.com for more information and evidence that refutes these theories.
Happily I have now seen both sides of the debate and my views on Jesus have since changed considerably…
In the attached video made by Chris White, a significant volume of evidence is presented that shows the aforementioned films, authors and books are either outright lies knowingly made by their creators; or they are very poor works of pseudoscience. Again, there is no choice but to choose…
Although it is a great challenge to see purpose and beauty behind the chaos and pain in our world there are profound and paradigm-shifting truths hidden away in little corners and secrets that can reveal a much greater reality to us…if we would only pay them a little attention.
Can this seemingly insignificant little formula really have an impact in our lives? Does its presence in totally unrelated aspects of our lives have any spiritual implications? Is it proof of God?
To me, the answer is a resounding “OH YEAH!” for a number of reasons:
1) As the linked materials prove, these patterns are part of the core structure of the entire universe (evidenced, in part, by the shapes and proportions of galaxies as well) they therefore pre-date the manifestation of creation itself and therefore are not the result of physical “stuff” shifting and falling into a pattern—they are an existing system that life organizes itself upon.
2) Despite all of the horrors we see that man, Satan and other forces of wickedness have created in this world; these patterns show that there is an underlying perfection to life. Therefore, is it too far of a leap to say that all of these bad things are happening with that same innate perfection? Can we rest in this perfection and be the eye of the storm?
If we contemplate how intricate these structures are, can we stretch our imaginations and hearts to see that the trials and terrors we’ve experienced have within them this same underling Grace? Can we climb into the heavens and look down upon our little lives with a macro lens to see how we are part of an incredible and impossibly complex tapestry with a Perfect Plan to bring us back to our source: God Himself?
No matter what troubles I see, experience or encounter I choose to gamble that there is an inherent perfection within them that will lead me to a greater knowledge, a more profound Faith, and if I am patient and quiet; a greater revelation of God.
You are part of the pure source code of infinite divinity, you are not forgotten, and you are so very important. Breath in your divine inheritance. Rest in the peace, perfection and plan of God and go forth in the future. If, like me, you’re drawn to study another perfect pattern, Yeshua Ha Maschiah, Jesus Christ The Messiah I wish you well and would be delighted to explore these topics more with you.
In the debate over God, religion, spirituality and life there are many key historical and factual points to debate; some are very contentious, some are surprisingly conclusive—and I place examples of each of those on both sides of the debate “aisle.”
For many people, these pieces of debate are reason enough to throw the philosophy and spiritual guidance available in The Word and via The Spirit out the window without a deeper thought on the profound nature, effect and paradigm-shifting power of the content….
The speaker in the embedded video below details how a follower of Christ’s Words and Deeds is called to “boast in their weaknesses” and humble themselves. Some believers today who seek to be the “first fruits” are striving to this end so mightily that they wish to be nearly non-existant; in the desire that Will of God replaces their selfish desires with His Holy Plans.
This philosophical underpinning is the unconquerable message within The Bible that transcends the debate of “is their a God, is The Bible accurate, did Jesus really do what we’re told he did…” and replaces it with a quantum shift in our thoughts, words and deeds.
The world is full of a cacophony of sights and sounds and pleasures to be had; will these joys be the pursuit of our lives—or will we seek a different goal altogether and bring our lives to the altar of God and humbly pray that our dreams are burned away to be replaced with His?
I like to think I’m a good person, I like to think my efforts matter, and I like to think that there are many things worth fighting for.
But today, I’m having a “difficult” thought. Is it possible that all of my blabbering about this or that candidate, ending the corrupt Federal Reserve, exposing the “New World Order” and working to create a world with less government abuse, corruption and theft via taxation not what God wants right now?
In that line of thinking, are the criminals in Washington DC, the NWO-advocates in the above link and the military/police state we see rising around us actually good in the long run?
“What?! Did you just say that The Fed and the heaving and snarling leviathan known as THE GOVERNMENT is somehow part of God’s plan?!?!”
And more than that, I say that these wicked people (and the demonic entities surrounding them) are good because they can draw us back to our only true peace: God.
“Oh yeah?! You think “God” is going to help you?!”
Looking at the vast complexity of life and the stunning coincidences I see on a regular basis I cannot rationally conceive of a life that does not have a Conscious Creator behind it at the strings. When I read the testimony and philosophy of Jesus, I cannot rationally conceive of better advice.
“Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”
*To me, this means infinite forgiveness, not the number.
“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else?”
*If we only give love, respect and kindness to those we judge as deserving of it, what good have we really done?
“If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it.”
*This is the big one. Can we turn our eyes to God and through pain-staking patience, prayer and reckless abandonment of our sense of gratification; seek His Will rather than our own? Not religiously follow rules and try to live a perfect life by going letter by letter through The Bible (that’s probably impossible), rather chain our egos down, pray our knees off to find Divine Guidance (no matter where it might lead) and offer our lives up as tools in the belt of The Almighty.
I know this all sounds crazy, and I know many will read this and hear that brave voice in their head say, “It’s our right, duty and sacred responsibility to devote ourselves to steering the political process! If we don’t do something that socialist/communist/radicaly Muslim Obama will get back in and ruin this Nation!!!” But given the dire straights we’re already in, there may be no saving the current systems of this world.
If that’s scary, rest in the peace that there is a God, there is a Plan, and that even though the discipline the world is receiving is painful, if we are willing to dive into the flames with the Faith we will emerge from the fire as refined disciples of steel (rather than rusty iron rods) hand-crafted by an all-knowing, perfect and loving Creator it will be worth the struggle, yes?
