PostSubject: The World Stage and Your Real Power~   Mon Jun 05, 2017 10:48 am

Like you, no doubt, I've always known this world ain't right and I don't belong to it.
Every worldly success came with a trap.  I now consider them as 'course corrections', and they only bother me now as I see others heading towards them. So we warn.
But at the same time, while we're in it (but not of it) we must not lose sight of or forget what we've gained, because that is our both our Source and our Power.

I have an example, and if you don't mind, please envision a theater and a stage, and a play going on.  You are born onto this stage and required to find your place, get your lines learned, and conform.  Even non-conformance and rebellion is scripted, and as always the results are a dismal disappointment.  This great cacophony churns out chaos and loss continually.

Whether in a moment of desperation or a moment of silence and deep longing for a hope remembered, Promised but Unseen, we look out from the stage into what seems like total darkness against the glaring stage lights, and we sense a Presence watching from the balcony, who calls to us to find the stairs and come up hither.

It surely feels that this could be the death of us for all we know (and it is).  But whether we start out haltingly or if we leap  (and it always feels like a 'leap'!),
like Pilgrims we head out for parts unknown, not even seeing the helpers all round and about us.

(to be cont'd so your eyes don't glaze over. lol)


Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1Thessalonians 5:16 -18

You nailed it! We were born into the real world but trained to the stage, which we think is real - then the lucky ones find out it isn't.

Maybe not come up hither (right away anyway) but rather open your eyes - and when you do, it's like being born again.

We're in the midst of a war against reality - and the reality is that this planet is your birthright and all the resources in it, and you are a wonderous, spectacular creation of the most high and holy Jehovah.

You jumped ahead!  Laughing  I'm glad!  And I appreciate that you read it and contributed time and thoughts.  I know you all are the choir of the Redeemed, but I have to say it all anyway.   Laughing  Maybe I can do part deux tomorrow.  lol.
When we get in to doing battle, I want to hear your visions of that, too!

Let's say we're made the commitment to go for it.  Step one-leave the stage.  One foot in, one foot out, goes nowhere.

Calling God down doesn't work the way we want it to.  Early on we may still be perplexed at His absence, but He has an Order to all things that must be followed.
And the reasons for this are given in the Word.
The world mocks, where is your God?  What kind of a God would allow this?
We now have these answers, to both know and pass on.

We know all that must happen as we make our Way to the Presence of the Most Holy God: cleansed, washed, made a New Creature, with a New Life ~ the Eternal Life of the Spirit and in Obedience to Him, living in Accordance with His Word which is His Law and the Only Law of His Kingdom.

If ever there was a key to attaining-reclaiming our God given Authority within His Creation, it is the necessity of breaking free from the fallen world, and ascending to and abiding in and by the Kingdom of God.

And the biggest mistake after taking the leap may be putting ourselves back into bondage to the ways of the world by not understanding the Reality of what we have gained.

That script that we were born into was written by satan.  We know it now, yet we're still shocked daily as we witness it.  There are no limits, no boundaries, no end to the perversions, the trickery, lies, brutality, bloodlust and death.  And worst of all there is the blindness of the masses that just about passes ALL understanding!  And if God had not told us, had not opened our eyes...."there but for the Grace of God go I."

Is it this knowledge that separates us?   Knowledge is Power the world says.  Meh..(to quote Delfi Wink ),the knowledge the world speaks of falls far short.

What we have is far greater than the 'knowledge of good and evil'.  We have the Presence of the Creator of all things abiding in us. Talk about miracles!
Even as we attained Eternal Life and Communion with the Father, He has sent us back, as Jesus prayed, with the Spirit indwelling us to execute the Will of God on this earth!

Is that what's happening?  If so, how so?  If not, why not?


Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

nice thread i feel very in tune with this thread. The spirit's been working overtime lately. Kindling fires, amping up the wattage, desiring for lights to shine. To me he's saying, have faith in humanity. Keep a positive attitude about yourself and about others to manifest peace, love, and harmony. Send blessings to others. Expect blessings in return. Stay happy and positive no matter what is going on in your life ... challenging for me Wink but worthy of effort.

More incoming spirit food:

Choose to keep yourself, align yourself, or regain your balance in faith and positivity, even though circumstances may temporarily throw you off balance. The sooner you are able to get back on your feet the better. Living in anger and/or fear only serves to empower your enemy (those who mean to cause you harm, be they physical or spiritual).

Anger and fear are positions of weakness. Beyond that, living in fear or negativity hinders the ability of your messengers (angels) to assist you. Remember that we live in a matrix and our choice is 0 or 1 (good or evil).

Witchcraft works in a way so as to create fear and negativity (media might be a good example of this, or false flags), to undermine your confidence but curses won’t alight on an undeserving target. They only work when we've stepped off the narrow path and our shields of faith and assurance are down. Best to keep those shields up or put them back up as soon as possible lest a firey dart should come your way.

You are a creative being. Your thoughts (fears or confidence) will create your future life. What do you envision for yourself? What do you wish to create? Fearful scenerios or ones of blessings and strength? Fearfulness or confidence?

Now we're getting somewhere!  cheer cheer cheer

God is a rewarder of those who diligently Seek and Find Him! And when we grasp the magnitude of THE EXCHANGE that's taken place, and WHERE to find the Kingdom and WHAT the Kingdom is, it couldn't be any other way!
Keep going!  I'll be back. Wink

I found a couple graphs, to help make the "Unseen Seen".

First, God's EEG:



Now, the world's, and that of the 'natural man':



And I liked this of 'tone' vs 'noise'; the discord of the stage and the
never failing Orderliness of God.


Is it any wonder that God said, "BE STILL, and KNOW that I AM God."

God spoke to Elijah:

11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord.
And, behold, the Lord passed by,
and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord;
but the Lord was not in the wind:
and after the wind an earthquake;
but
the Lord was not in the earthquake:

12 
and after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire:
and after the fire a still small voice.

(1Kings 19)


Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Whether we tripped, slid, jumped or got knocked off the stage like Paul, we're off. And that changes everything forevermore. Yet even though it seems like we sure got somewhere, (and we did), it's only the beginning.  But before we take on the world again there is much work to be accomplished first in the Spirit, and putting our attention back onto the world should only come after we are well-established in the Spirit and the Kingdom.

And THAT renewal, communion and establishment must be daily.  Daily is what makes the difference from barely hanging on through the storms to having Power and Authority over the storm.


Knowing what we know of the world, why would we come back here unarmed? And I don't mean just the violence.  There are many weapons formed against us.  Unless the Rapture happens in our lifetime, the Life is going to depart from the flesh, and the flesh is going into the ground or up in smoke.  It's destiny is ash, dust.
The transfigured body does not bleed.  It's very cool really.  Multi-dimensional.  Not just spirit as the Ascended body, and not flesh. But able to serve God's Purpose.
And ours.  Because they have become as One. We now have no purpose outside the Will of God, and with Right Understanding of God's Will towards us, there is nothing greater we could desire.

The Bible says God willingly grants the prayer for wisdom.  That, to me, is synonymous to praying for the Holy Spirit, as He is Wisdom, and we cannot be pleasing to God unless we are conformed in the manner that only the Holy Spirit can cause to be so.

In fact, I know of no prayer that is not fulfilled by the Presence of the Holy Ghost, as He is altogether The Kingdom, The Power and The Glory of God on earth, right now, indwelling all who are Sanctified.

The Bible says the Holy Spirit calls no attention to Himself, that we do not pray to Him. He is an aspect of God that maybe we grasp, and maybe we really don't or can't.

https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/what-is-the-holy-spirit/
In the Bible, the word “spirit” is translated from the Hebrew word ruʹach and the Greek word pneuʹma. Most often, those words refer to God’s active force, or holy spirit. (Genesis 1:2)

These meanings all share the sense of something invisible to humans that produces visible effects. Similarly, the spirit of God, “like the wind, is invisible, immaterial and powerful.”—An Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words, by W. E. Vine.
The Bible also refers to God’s holy spirit as his “hands” or “fingers.” (Psalm 8:3; 19:1; Luke 11:20; compare Matthew 12:28.) Just as a craftsman uses his hands and fingers to do his work, God has used his spirit to produce such results as the following:

  • The universe.—Psalm 33:6; Isaiah 66:1, 2.
  • The Bible.—2 Peter 1:20, 21.
  • The miracles performed by his ancient servants and their zealous preaching.—Luke 4:18; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11.
  • The fine qualities displayed by people who obey him.—Galatians 5:22, 23.


So we're off the stage, in some in-between process of being educated, transformed, and conformed to a Way very contrary to the ways of the world and our old nature.
And depending on how far up the path we landed, the whole thing can be pretty perplexing.  We can find the Spirit ready to work before we've even figured out what's going on!
Of course He knows what He's doing, but we may not have the 'surrender' part down quite yet.   But we learn!  LOL.
So it's been my little niche to examine what actually happens in this 'in-between' area between the world and the Kingdom,  as it is the difference between nothing and Everything. It seems like so many times I was made to 'walk through-live out' the lesson, and as I am an imperfect nobody, I expect you have had to and are doing the same.
But I say that so you can know that whatever He is walking you through is so that He can reveal More of Himself to you, so that you will ever seek More of Him, that He
Alone is your Life and your Salvation, and that He is well able to do it perfectly, doing more for you than you can possibly ask or think WHEN we give our lives over to Him to do AS HE PLEASES, and as we patiently watch in Peace of body, mind, soul and spirit, Trusting every step of the Way.

God is growing us up, and we have to keep Coming.  Some of us are so old we should be running at this point!  LOL.

What do we gain, and how do we get "There", next I hope.


Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
