My favorite place to be in all of my life is right here, at my desk with my Word opened and in prayer, communing with my Father through His Spirit, which He placed into me so long ago. There is nothing more precious to me than my relationship with Yahuah. His presence in my life is more valuable to me than my children, than the love of a Righteous woman, and my physical human life. To be martyred for the cause of Yahusha will be the highlight and glorious climax and cherished end of my physical existence on the earth.
How well do you understand who you really are?
When you walk about town, do you feel connected to the throngs of people around you? When you buy groceries, do you focus on the task to get it done and get out? When you see some awesome new car or truck roll up beside you at the intersection, do you imagine yourself driving it? Do you value popularity? Do you wish you could wear more expensive suits and is your daily hustle for money the main purpose for rising from bed?
What I am struggling to get to is this: If you are saved then you are no longer of this world. You are an alien here. You do not belong here and the world is hostile to you and to everything related to Christ, His promise and His return.
The sooner you let go of this world, the sooner you will abound in the grace of Yahusha.
What I will teach you next will help you.
You Are A Spirit Being, A Celestial Entity, Holy Royalty
Look at your feet. Go ahead, take a look at them. Shoes on? That’s fine. Look at your shoes. Like them? Those shoes will fully decompose over time, and will be forgotten forever. It will be as if those shoes, or those feet, never existed. Temporary. Temporal. Not even one single tick of the tock of “time”. “Time” itself does not exist. It is an imaginary tool we use to create structure in our lives. “Time” is an engineering construct. It doesn’t exist in reality, unless you are late for work.
What does “exist” is your feet. Your body, brain, eyes, liver, etc. But like your shoes, that body of yours will decompose and return to the earth to feed the bacteria in the soil. You won’t feel all that decomposition action because you will not be present in that old dead body.
You exist fully within your human body. That body of yours is nothing more than a brilliantly engineered machine. It is truly amazing, just as the body of a tiger or an Orca is amazing. Machines, all. You are not part of your body and your body is not part of you. You raise the hand on your body, it does not raise itself unless your machine is malfunctioning.
Your heart beat is an automated sub-structure of your machine. Many processes are automated, just as many processes in a computer are automated. We use a keyboard to “raise the hand” of our computers, but the automated subroutines take place without our involvement, without our conscious physical activity to make things happen.
Breathing is also automated. You might think that you have full control over your breathing, but you don’t. You can over-ride your lung activity to a certain point, but ultimately your machine is going to run the breathing sub-routine regardless of your determination to deny it.
You can prove this easily. Dive to the bottom of a swimming pool and try to hold your breath until you pass out. You cannot do it. Your mouth will pop open soon and inhale water, which will cause your body to cease functioning and you will leave your body almost immediately. Its automatic. Your machine is programmed to breathe. You can over-ride that process only marginally.
You exist independent of your body. When your body stops running certain sub-routines, either due to a control module malfunction or a hardware malfunction, the entire system fails. A good engineer (aka “Surgeon”) might be able to help in a pinch, but like a used car, once you start having problems under the hood, its only a matter of time before catastrophic failure.
Cars don’t really care.
You do, though.
Realize this fact: You are NOT your body. You manage your body. You wash it. Run it hard. Park it. It gets hot and cold. It requires fuel to maintain adequate performance. You can put sporty tires on your body and you can add horsepower in the gym, but eventually, your machine will quit on you forever.
Understand Your Mortality Or Your Immortality
Your body is going to stop working. Maybe soon or maybe not soon, but the human body will “give up the ghost” soon.
Start being conscious of the fact that you exist within that “human” shell. When Yahusha came as a “human” he had a shell just like yours. It broke and that body died, but Yahusha did not die. Instead, He left that shell and went to tell the story of redemption to the fallen angels locked in the dark dungeons in Tartarus, deep beneath the foundation of the circle of earth.
These people all died, likely in the millions….
Psalm 107:10 – Some sat in darkness, in utter darkness, prisoners suffering in iron chains, 11because they rebelled against God’s commands and despised the plans of the Most High.
12So he subjected them to bitter labor; they stumbled, and there was no one to help. 13Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress.
14He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness, and broke away their chains.
And who were these lost souls bound by chains in utter darkness?
1Peter 3:19 in which also going he preached to the spirits which are in prison,
1Pe 3:20 heretofore disobedient, when the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah while the ark was preparing, into which few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water:
The point is this: You are a spirit being. Current, present tense. You ARE spirit. Your body will fail and you will leave it lying on the ground where it fell. You will turn from it and proceed to meet Yahuah. You will be met initially by whomever you loved the most who also died before you and who is in heaven already. Maybe two or three.
I have seen this. It will happen to you if you are saved. If you have surrendered to the offer of eternal life by acknowledging your sins, repenting from them and embracing Yahusha as the living Son of Yahuah who redeemed you by forgiving you, by dying on that cross and walking out of His grave to return to Heaven, from whence He came.
Get baptized before witnesses and proclaim that Yahuah’s is the savior of mankind, the living Son of the living Yahuah. Distance yourself from this world and as you follow Him, you will grow increasingly distant from the world until like Abraham, you will gaze out across the world and know that you are free in Yahuah.
If you accept Yahusha (aka “Jesus”) as your Savior and Lord but don’t know what to do next, comment to me or email me and I will help you.
