Money measures time or worth is eternal

Get inspired today and fly high on the wings of revelational knowledge

From a vessel to a vessel a wise advise is precious

God choose one vessel for the world. There is only one Albert Einstein, one Chopin, one Mozart.

Share your victory with others

When you are alone you stay alone; no one knows what treasure you carry and are

Life triumphant

Humanity is destined for success. Overcome and receive the fullness of joy

Connect with heaven and then with earth

Every good gift flows down from heaven like streams from the mountains; start bathing in them

The truth, peacemaking and sonship are synonymous - one single package. God is one and anything pertaining to Him speaks of that glorious oneness. 

[John 17:17-19] Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.

Truth sanctification speaks of conformation and dedication to the quality of the heavenly truth in which hypocrisy, double-mindedness or ulterior motives are never possible. Even Jesus sanctified Himself for us so that we might abide in Him.    

[John 18:37] Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth.

Jesus came to bring this complete honesty and straightforwardness—the brightest of all lights in existence—to earth. Those who are of the truth kind will hear and will come to Him; and also to those who preach the truth in His name.

[John 18:38] Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice. Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?” (39) And when he had said this, he went out…

God’s sons’ characteristic is peacemaking, no intrigues, deviousness, double-mindedness or ulterior motives—which we are busy figuring out and, I assume, nail down the culprits by calling them liars. In the peacemaker’s mind that is already settled; and so the peacemakers are busy with higher things than just being busy finding out what’s hiding in darkness. 

[Matthew 5:9] Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called sons of God.

Lambs are always peaceful. It means that both sheep and sons are God’s seed. “My sheep hear My voice”—they heard the voice of truth and respond to it quite naturally; they do not hear or follow hirelings because the hired hands are strangers. Hirelings do not belong to God's family and do not deal with the truth; their job is catching. These fishers of man cast their nets into the sea and drag onto the shore many fishes; and then the ministering spirits - God's angels - do the sorting out ("by their fruits you will know them" - Matthew 7:20-22). They only preach salvation and church belonging and not much beyond that point. – Justification by faith, being saved; and after death going to heaven. Perhaps they do not know anything else?

[Luke 10:2] The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

It can be compared to a marathon race where the marathon runners start to run, but they are being prevented from running the full race. They are stopped at 100 meters being treated as sprint runners instead. Imagine the frustration of those who go to church just to make it to heaven being taught to trust Jesus. Justification by faith is only justification, it is not yet righteousness, but a positional justification, or exemption from duty, but is it? Since we will be accountable for every careless word—said Jesus in Matthew 12:36—then how much more for our deed. But that does not fit in the present theology. As a result we are being taught to see ourselves as God sees us and accept ourselves as we are, on the basis of the done work of Christ on the cross. Then we must believe of course that we are saved and made holy. But, we keep on struggling with that faith for we are constantly kept on the outskirts; as if not allowed to go deeper into God's most glorious kingdom. A marathon runner wants to run the full race and overcome the distance and outgrow the babyhood and its ‘diapers’ but is prevented from doing so.

Overcomers run the full race and they go deeper into God's kingdom. The further or deeper they go the less struggles they have with faith or with trusting God; for they indeed outgrow the elementary things. The kingdom of God becomes plainer to them.

The hirelings do not have much else but hype, firing people up in faith, and using psychology, e.g., stop speaking your own words; you must declare God's word only. Stand firmly in your faith because the roaring lion the devil… Do not give the enemy an opportunity. Or they tell you that God loves you as you are. Well, if we hate children rapists, and serial killers and we are repulsed at these things, and at those committing those crimes, then this also comes from our Creator. In Noah’s flood sinners and their sins both perished. Jesus did not only die spiritually, but also physically. The sinner and his sin are one unit. The sinner repents the sin is removed, but the unit remains one and the same yet cleansed; and in due time even sanctified.

I don’t think that God loved Hitler, but if Hitler would have repented and turned to God then God’s love would flow toward him also; but then he would not have murdered millions and brought great suffering to the German people.

God’s love needs connection. It is not a whimsy feeling or sentiment it is active. So God loved the world that He gave His Son… (John 3:16) But He gave. He did something and He connected with us through His Son who died and rose again. When you confess Him as such then you are saved—registered in the Book of Life in heaven. You are seated and positioned, but there is more. The next birth is of water (God’s Word) and the Spirit. And there is still another birth when the marathon runner completes the race and has fully entered into God’s kingdom; and no longer struggles with faith or sin, but is indeed born of God and is like wind. No one knows where he comes from and to where he goes (John 3:5-8).  

It’s a strange philosophy, which we constantly try to prop up lest it should fall. The New Testament is the extension of the Old Testament. The first button on your shirt has been already buttoned up, which is the sin-defining law, but grace is its extension, which came to us through Jesus Christ. You cannot keep these two separately. It’s like telling yourself that you no longer need roads or traffic lights, you sort of grew wings and your car became a plane. If everyone did that then we would have chaos and many deadly accidents. Without the first button there would not be the second. Without sin definition there would be no repentance etc.

The next verse happened to be written to the Jews (in order the avoid this now “dirty” word, because the anti-Semites trashed the Jew; “Hebrews” is a nicer word). It is not written to the Romans or Greeks, it’s directed to a quite different mind, which gentiles either do not like or subconsciously resist.

INFO: Only recently many gentile Christians are realizing that God has not rejected the Jew; and that they should bless the natural seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; for God’s blessings flow through that line, both physically as well as spiritually. 

[Hebrews 5:12-14] For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.   

INFO: Martin Luther suggested that it was Apollos who wrote the Book of Hebrews.

[Hebrews 6:1-2] Therefore leaving the elementary teaching about the Christ, let us press on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of instruction about washings and laying on of hands, and the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment.

Matthew 13:41 & 48-49 speaks of angels doing the separation of the good fish from the bad, the chaff and stumbling blogs, tares from the field, etc. It is one and the same act being portrayed with many similes for the reader to grasp the one and timeless spiritual dimension. The good fish are ‘kosher’ (fit to be eaten); the disciples of Jesus did that also. But other fish, like catfish, serve as cleaners or vacuums of the sea floors; they have no scales and they are deemed as being unclean, not kosher. 

[Luke 10:3-6] Go; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry no money belt, no bag, and no shoes; and greet no one on the way.

We are pacemakers, like lambs, amidst warlike people—wolves. Peacemakers have deeper trust; and hence, a deeper dependence on the Father regarding the mammon of unrighteousness—money.

This sentence, “greet no one on the way” means to be decisive and single-minded. This clarity of purpose and mission is prophetic in nature; it comes from the higher intelligence. Then comes the further instruction,

“Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house.’ If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you.

It means that you must only seek the sons, His lost seed who’s characteristic is peacemaking. When you find God’s ‘hidden or lost’ son then you will also find His seed whose fruit would be peace. In a response to your greeting of peace they will make room for NAVEH, the habitation place for the dwelling of God’s gift of faith. Preach, teach the truth, and let your greeting of peace remain on that entire household and then more blessings will follow.  

Jesus continues saying,

[Luke 10:7-9] Stay in that house, eating and drinking what they give you; for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not keep moving from house to house. Whatever city you enter and they receive you, eat what is set before you; and heal those in it who are sick, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’

Quite obviously, just the observational basis does not satisfy the kingdom’s requirements. Divine healing needs love, compassion and connection; it does not work from a distance, as if watching a show, or analyzing and trying to figure out the preacher with one’s suspicious or prejudiced mind. The preparation of NAVEH—for the gift of faith, for His word, for His peace and above all for the messenger of God—takes more than willingness. If we find a man of peace then as the first step our peace then found its resting place, then more is on the way. Sons always will respond to the same quality, which is sonship.

Jesus is the vine; even a tree, the Tree of Life, and God’s sons are the branches of the same tree. The Tree of Life has fruits that fall to the ground and each fruit contains the core with one or many seeds. The right milieu or environment makes this seed grow yet another tree, but in fact it is the same tree because it is the same kind. That tree’s seed produces another tree with the same fruits; hence, anyone not being of that kind will not be called a son, but a hireling.

Jesus continues, but now in the negative part of the Tree of Knowledge of TOV (good) and RAH (bad).

INFO: At first we were directed by God to eat of the first tree, the ETZ DA’AT (Tree of Knowledge). (One must be reformed to understand it.) Through the right choices we will eventually be escorted to the other tree in the middle of God’s Garden—ETZ HEI’IM (Tree of Life).   

People often avoid anything negative, having almost an aversion to anything negative, yet the negative emphasizes the positive. God’s seed has no problem with it because the seed is good. The good discerns and quickly recognizes anything evil. We are IN the world but not OF the world.  One must make a choice; left and right; right and wrong; blessing or curse, life or death, etc. 

Jesus said, “But If you do not find the ‘hidden’ sons—God’s own seed, for you will see the fruit—the appropriate or inappropriate response to your greeting of peace; then act accordingly. If it is negative; then do not stay in that house, take back your greeting of peace and go elsewhere. You are not called to waste time or scatter God’s treasures. “Do not throw pearls before swine.” In other words, He said “Find Me the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel, the lost seed, lost sons and those that love the truth.” Those who are of the truth will come to Jesus for the Father will draw them to His Firstborn; and naturally so for they belong to the same tree being its branches or extensions. In time they will bear much fruit and thus prove to be His disciples (John 15:8-10).

[Luke 10:10-12] But whatever city you enter and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say, ‘Even the dust of your city which clings to our feet we wipe off in protest against you; yet be sure of this, that the kingdom of God has come near.’ I say to you, it will be more tolerable in that day for Sodom than for that city.

The “yet be sure of this, that the kingdom of God has come near,” means that with the preaching and teaching of the Gospel of Peace comes God’s Kingdom. It comes near to those who do not respond to the greeting of peace, or make no provision for it; and make no room for the lodging of God's word in their hearts and in their midst.

The truth is the fruit of the Tree of Life and Jesus was God’s Firstborn Son to Him all things belong in heaven and on earth. We are His brothers; hence branches.

[John 15:5-6] I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned.

[John 15:8-10] My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.

The marathon runners finally arrive, being born of the Spirit. They eat fruits of ETZ HEI’IM and like Enoch and his students serve God in a completely different dimension. They run according to different laws. They come and minister to us like those people on the sides of the road with bottles of water refreshing the marathon runners.  

Obviously, we are partaking of the ETZ HEI’IM. Love, joy and peace come from the same tree, the Tree of Life.  Have you made the choice?

Fear of the new

After you have read the entire book, from start to finish and get one monolithic impression then that impression will lead you to greater truths beyond the book you've just finished reading. It means this: the impression you have received is not fragmented; so submit it to God in prayer. After a while, your perceptions will begin to change, from those illusive ones into true. This switch takes some time. Why? - because the "old Adam" in us does not want to change, (actually it is Cain, he did not repent and the natural man does not want to repent so subconsciously he fights back by holding on to the well established old things even though they have been only man-made doctrines, which today make no sense).

When we use logic, deduction and the God-given gift of intelligence then the Holy Spirit aids us in this wonderful task. Then we drift away from the man-made illusions and come closer to the Truth.

[Ephesians 4:14] "As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every WIND OF DOCTRINE, by the TRICKERY OF MEN, by craftiness in deceitful scheming."

Obviously it is not Satan, or demons, but perhaps demonized men, yet very much a flesh and blood human being. If they blabber stuff from their dead predecessors, regardless how foolish and nonsensical they might have been, but they just can't help themselves for the fear of being in error or being labelled as false can almost paralyze them. 

Demonic presence often manifests itself in fear of anything new. This fear controls those who stay in the old. Again, for fear of the new and of being labeled as being in error or false. - This is our dead predecessors' control of our minds. - One of them was St. Augustine who gave us the (supposed) fall of Satan and the trash that followed afterwards. 

Yes, the dead still keep many in their UNCLEAN grip. I was in that grip until Yeshua came to deliver me from it. Yes, I became a rebel in that sense. Now, I lay my life down for others, even for you. When I'm labeled in error or false I rejoice, for I know the truth, which made me completely free from man's bondage.

Being About Our Father's Business

We have concluded that there are three kinds of people: the world (field) the tares (evil sons) and the good seed (sons of the Kingdom) (Matthew 13:38). Jesus said in Matthew 7:20-22 that by people’s outward (fruits) behavior, preoccupations, words and actions we shall know them.  

[Luke 2:249] And He said unto them, “How is it that you seek Me, don’t you know that I must be about my Father’s business?”

Sons - God’s seed - are about God’s business; any other business is secondary as if in the shadows or fog. Busybodies have nothing else to do but excite their gossipy dispositions. Self-righteous people love to see unrighteousness to compare themselves with the unrighteous and say, “Well, I’m not so bad, I am better then them…”

Paul discouraged this kind of preoccupations for they lead to divisions and descents.

[2 Corinthians 10:5] We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.

Who is the “we are destroying?” Obviously we can only discourage others from getting too involved in empty speculations, but in ourselves we must use self-discipline. It means we cut all speculations in ourselves the moment they try to sprout, but the best is to root them completely out so that they do not grow anymore.

[2 Timothy 2:22-23] … pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. But refuse foolish and ignorant speculations, knowing that they produce quarrels.   

Governments and corporate giants, with budgets in trillions, are the Kenites for they love only money and power and never have enough of it. They have stored trillions. Many have forgot even their Bank’s names and their locations, even the names of their trustees. They have so many investments and bank accounts all over the world that they can’t keep track of them all. Storehouses of money and gold just sit in vaults producing no benefit to anyone.

[Matthew 6:21] For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

We must be about our Father’s business, for to Him belong all earthly values, which He created, but Cain only labeled them. The forger of metals, Tubal-Cain, was the one who started the precious metals business. Most likely the Kenites continued in the tradition of their great ancestor Cain by also valuating precious stones.

Abraham paid with pieces of silver. Genesis 2 speaks of the onyx stone and bdellium.   

[Genesis 2:12] The gold of that land is good; the bdellium and the onyx stone are there.

Obviously that was found out later. And, since Can was a farmer, tilling the ground, he must have found many things, which later; the writers of the Bible have valued. This tradition continues beyond this day.

Let’s imagine that we have vaults stuffed with gold and silver and you are the owner of trillions, what then; it all sits in banks collecting dust, do you feel securer? Are you comforted with the thought of having? Perhaps from time to time you take the underground train to your vault and shine your flashlight on those bars bedazzling your eyes with the gold’s reflections. Are you any wiser? - The pride of this life just strengthened itself.

People who only wallow in riches know nothing about being holy, endued with God’s power and wisdom. They do not believe in the afterlife so to part with their attachments is extremely hard. Those dabbling in spiritism call those dead people out for they want their riches, but can’t find them. They evoke the unclean, polluting themselves as well as our environment. Many houses of the wealthy are being haunted, disturbing people’s peace; people get sick from it, children have nightmares.

[Deuteronomy 18:10-13] There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and because of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you. You shall be blameless before the LORD your God. 

Rationally speaking, God knows that these things pollute us, but why do we disobey Him? Are we suicidal, or crazy? Sensationalism and greed cause these things. Newspaper tabloids deal with the rich and famous. Conspiracy theories excite our senses.

All right, you have cracked a case of conspiracy in the US government so you know. You know the Free Masons, the Illuminati, or the Bilderberg Group[1] then what? What will you do with your cracked case – your knowledge? Do you see that this whipped cream you have whipped you will have to eat by yourself. I do not want it, why? – Because I already know the nature of a Kenite; not from any other source but from God’s Word. I have studied and watched them and then come the time to confirm something with evidence - their fruits. However, things I am not sure of I leave alone. I am not the judge; God is. Am I better than a Kenite? Why should I even compare myself with anyone who is selfish, malicious, insensitive, greedy, conceited, powerful or wealthy? It would be like saying "I am better than the rhinoceros." I only thank God that I know who I am and what I have. Everything else has little or no meaning at all anymore. My journey has taken a turn in the most glorious direction.  

I am about my Father’s business. Period.

I really like what Jesus said here.

[Matthew 15:12-14] Then the disciples came and said to Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this statement?” But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be uprooted. Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” 

If you are His planted plant (His Seed) then you will follow Jesus, who was only about His Father’s business. Time is precious. Don’t waste it. Learn from Him.

Truth & Illusion

The Foundation Of The Last Reformation

The foundation of the TRUTH & ILLUSION is this: truth is eternal while illusion passes away. In the same foundation we have the understanding of what's true and what is illusive, that appears and then disappears. In The New Jerusalem there is no darkness, nothing can hide in the light of Truth and so there are no shadows. There is no more assuming or guessing. 

Once that is grasped we move on to the final reformation, which "makes" God as the All Powerful and All knowing One, before whom time and darkness don't exist. Having said so, Satan is a created-by-God angel from A to Z, under God's full control.

We do not like Satan, just as we do not like prosecutors in the court of law; especially when we are the accused and not the plaintiff. 

Imagine. God the Father is the Judge. The faultfinder and also accuser, Satan, is the District Attorney or prosecutor. Your Defender, Advocate and Intercessor is the Lord Jesus. The accuser must be there by law; and he must accuse and find fault. Hence; a Jew understands it much better than a gentile who was grafted into the cultivated Olive tree later. 

[John 1:17] (First came the law.) For the Law was given through Moses; (then came God's grace) grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.

[Romans 11:18, 24] Do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you. [24] For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree?

Then we move on to understand why we must have faith in God. If God is split--and heaven is unstable because of the supposed rebellion of Lucifer--then our faith cannot ever be complete and powerful. We are asked to trust Him, but how can we trust a god that supposedly was almost forced to throw out of heaven Satan and with him 1/3 of rebellious angels?

Unlike us, angels do not have the free-will, for in order to have a free-will one must be physical, have an earthly identity on the earth in the time realm where we have distances and where we  must make many decisions and then move at will. The spiritual realm is instantaneous. Angels are spirits, winds and flames (Hebrews 1:7). 

This is the foundation the rest are branches and eventually we bring much fruit and thus glorify our Father who is in heaven (John 15:7-8).

Field, Tares & Seed

God has not determined as to who is who, field or tares, these are people's fruits. Many people do not want anything after they die, they are content to turn into nothing.

We are concerned about humanity, because we know that we are God's sons, His seed, because our FRUIT is such. We are peacemakers, and love our Heavenly Father, whom Jesus reveled to us. It is sad and can be painful to sow the seed in people and then let them go. 

There are people who were told about the new birth, the sacrifice of Jesus, salvation, yet they refused for they love themselves and their wretched flesh, which they did not even create for they came to this earth by God's grace. They are blind, but, sometimes after many years the seed you have planted in them sprouts. I have seen people saved 10 or 15 years later after the sowing the Gospel Seed in them, but by then, some of them were incurably sick and hoped only for salvation after they die. They became wonderful Christians, generous and loving, but died from the damages sin caused in their lives.

[Ezekiel 33:11] “Say to them, ‘As I live!’ declares the Lord GOD, ‘I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways! Why then will you die, O house of Israel?’

[Ecclesiastes 12:1] Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near when you will say, “I have no delight in them.”  

Conclusion: we must leave some people in peace after we have shared the Gospel with them.  If we have only the field mixed with field we have no life, if we have weeds growing in the field then we starve, but if we sow the good seed we have bread to eat.

[Luke 10:3-11] “Go; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry no money belt, no bag, no shoes; and greet no one on the way. Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house.’ If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you. Stay in that house, eating and drinking what they give you; for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not keep moving from house to house. Whatever city you enter and they receive you, eat what is set before you; and heal those in it who are sick, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ But whatever city you enter and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say, ‘Even the dust of your city which clings to our feet we wipe off in protest against you; yet be sure of this, that the kingdom of God has come near.’ 

In other words, "Do not insist or 'bombard' anyone with the Gospel of Peace" for it is not the nature of shalom (God's peace, the word that concludes the Aaronic Benediction in Numbers 6:22-26), even shake the dust of your feet and go elsewhere. - Jesus said. Don not waste time.

To God flesh and blood has but little meaning. God is Spirit. To Jesus His blood relatives had no meaning at all.

[Matthew 12:48-50] Someone said to Him, “Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside seeking to speak to You.” But Jesus answered the one who was telling Him and said, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?” And stretching out His hand toward His disciples, He said, “Behold My mother and My brothers! “For whoever does the will of My Father who is in heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother.”


[Mark3:33-35] Answering them, He said, “Who are My mother and My brothers?” Looking about at those who were sitting around Him, He said, “Behold My mother and My brothers! “For whoever does the will of God, he is My brother and sister and mother.”


[Luke 8:19-21] And His mother and brothers came to Him, and they were unable to get to Him because of the crowd. And it was reported to Him, “Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, wishing to see You." But He answered and said to them, “My mother and My brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it.”

The attachment to just the flesh; turns us into fleshly people, but it does not mean that we should not care for our blood relatives, we should, but they also have the free will and their own private lives.

Imagine & Think

A powerful faith is always intelligent
Let’s imagine that you have no brain, you live, but in a vegetating kind of state. You may breathe, but no muscle moves because it has no physical brain to command it and to coordinate any movement. The physical commander is the brain; because of the commander’s absence the entire structure remains motionless.

Let’s imagine God who is Spirit (John 4:24) having no contour or physical mass. Many people worship His creation as they would worship God; hence, these people keep on attaching body to the Spirit. This need, to touch and physically see, is enormous. 

[Deuteronomy 4:15-18] So watch yourselves carefully, since you did not see any form on the day the LORD spoke to you at Horeb from the midst of the fire, so that you do not act corruptly and make a graven image for yourselves in the form of any figure, the likeness of male, or female, the likeness of any animal that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the sky, the likeness of anything that creeps on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the water below the earth.    

A blessing awaits anyone who has not physically touched, tasted or seen, and yet has believed, but with what kind of faith, blind or educated; hence also intelligent? We glorify faith itself as something magical, so many nurture only wishful thinking in this regard. A blind faith is fruitless, and it does not come from the disciplined creative part of our being, but rather from the primitive one. Like a Neanderthal that believes that he can make a kill with his javelin; so he stalks and runs toward the prey. If that kind of a faith is also applied to God, and the supernatural works; then one runs, huffs, and puffs but to nowhere.  

[John 20:27] Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.
An educated faith is quite different from anything else we have ever come across. For example: Philip heard the Holy Spirit telling him to join the Ethiopian Eunuch. Philip did hear, but hearing alone does not do the job. It’s like a flying plane that never lands. Once Philip had obeyed God’s voice, he then landed on the ground and did some work. He shared the Gospel, baptized the man and then went on his way, but then that same Holy Spirit snatched him and transported him to the Azotus street, where another mission awaited Philip (Acts 8:40). That’s an educated, or intelligent faith. That faith must bring forth the intended fruit for which it was sent; it must land on the ground like that plane, which was not only designed to fly, but also to take off and land somewhere else.

Faith is God’s gift; (1 Corinthians 12:9) this divine power affects the miraculous in our lives. The exclusion of this possibility brings harmful sadness into our lives, which blinds us for we have limited ourselves to just the tangible and the seen. We activate only the natural man and neglect the spiritual man. Just as there is the need to prepare a place for love or peace in our lives, we must also prepare room for God’s gift of faith. 

An animal is hungry so it forages in order to satisfy the need for food. Predatory creatures hunt. We work and earn money, buy food, or go to a restaurant, but this kind of faith is called little (Matthew 6:30). The frontal lobe has little to do with this kind of faith. It is the limbic system that coordinates our movements just as it does in a pack of wolves working out their hunting strategies.

Elijah the prophet anoints Elisha the farmer
We have not yet put aside the war implements. We have not done what Elisha did when the higher call came. The farmer quickly killed his oxen and started a fire. He boiled the meat and fed his workers. He said goodbye to his parents and went off to a new life and new reality. A similar “train” (challenge) arrived in the American colonies more than two centuries ago. The Founding Fathers “boarded” it and took us on a ride. Where is that “train” today?

This snail-like progress is no progress at all. We know so much already, but we slow ourselves down. Making a technological leap forward with perfect products would lead to greater possibilities, and then we would be ready to make another giant leap forward, even bigger than the previous one. But, fear prevents most from thinking this way because they are comfortable holding on to the Status Quo.

The Google boys
Compared to what God has laid before us, our destiny, we have achieved little. We do not praise God, for we have too much praise for ourselves. Yet the source of all inspiration comes from Him, in every part of our society—arts, business and religion

When the Google boys started, they envisioned something that hardly anyone else did at that time. They only needed start-up funds. It took them some time to get them. Today, what would we do without the Google search engine? There is a lesson in history, but it takes a fast learner to make the jump ahead of time.

The Apple Man
Apple’s Steve Jobs put himself under a lot of strain. The visionary saw much more than what we use today. The late Steve Job is greatly missed. Someone must always break the ground; these are individuals that God chooses to pay the price, even with their lives, while others quickly capitalize on the invention. But, that drastically slows down our progress. For a change, how about making your brain ‘sweat’ a little, but this time let it be mixed with a higher percentage of the altruistic sentiment? Try it. It’s very inspiring. The cash wagon will arrive at your doorstep anyway.

If you spend all your energy searching for that cash wagon, then you will waste the precious time. But, if you use the mercy factor, and enrich humanity with the God given inspiration then prosperity is inevitable. It’s a matter of making the right choice and having the right priority.

The Penicillin man
Most inventions happened by accident, and in a relaxed state of mind: Newton’s discovery of gravity, Fleming’s discovery of penicillin. Money was not the motivator. Tranquil peace is the breeding ground for all great inventions in all sectors of our society. 

Give a little love to others, and you will be surprised at what comes out of you. All of a sudden you will feel that glorious and most intelligent stream of God’s inspiration. Don’t think about territory, and the glory that comes with it. Forget about praise and those endless stares of respect. Don’t let those things be your motivator. I’ve heard so many preachers (myself included) say, “They will see the glory of God on your face; they will see Christ in you.” No way. No one looks for Christ in you or wants to recognize God’s glory in you, but only their own. At most, they’ll say that you are an unusual man or a woman, that you are special, kind, or interesting. But, that’s enough to make them listen to you, for what you say or write will eventually have a chance of changing their lives. However, that will happen only with their permission. Others will compare themselves with you, for after all they crave grandeur and respect. That’s the only reason why they will listen to you, to be inspired to greatness. Many others are unwilling to ford rivers or climb mountains, for they are just too opportunistic. They want it all for free, and when they are not able to get it, in their frustration, they might turn against you. It’s sad, but true. This is the reality in which we live. Can we change it? Can we turn things around? Yes we can. We just need the proper inspiration.
