God’s Love Letter To Us

Everything God communicates to us serves as a bridge taking us from a temporal, “flesh” state, to an eternal, spirit state thereby leading us to Eternal Life. It is in my search for the spirit-filled understanding of the 4th Commandment that God revealed to me that His 10 Commandments, understood literally, from a rebelling heart, are as stringent laws seemingly to oppress us and make our lives more difficult. But, when our heart is no longer in a state of rebellion- meaning we have submitted onto him- our eyes become opened to the spiritual understanding present all along within His words to us; words written to us by His own fingers.

One night, God revealed to me the true nature of his 10 Commandments to us: A love letter from a husband to us, his rebellious wife. A letter to remind us of our union with Him; a reminder of who He is and HOW we go about reconciling with Him and preserving our union.

Be Mine

The first 4 Commandments are the revealing of His character and the Holiness of the covenant in which we are partaking in.

  1. He begins the letter with a declaration of who HE is, His accomplishments, what He has done for us and how He has prepared to accept us as His bride. He is proclaiming his Love for us in a manner that we may understand.

2. Next, He reminds us to not to put anything, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, between Him and us.

3. He then reminds us to not tempt or “test” him with falsehood. In other words, do not “cry wolf” to test his love for us.

4. He then asks that us “Remember your wedding day, Remember your vows, Remember that you are no longer an I but one with Me.” We are now in His rest. Remember our vow to remain in submission to Him.

Wise Woman

The next Commandments are ways of maintaining or keeping the union holy (whole). In other words, these are principles to being a good wife.

5. Honor me. Treat me with the highest respect. Accept as valid and conform to my requests and commands.

6. Do not Intentionally plan to cause me harm.

7. Do not give what is mine to another. My honor, my affection; Anything that is mine. Be exclusive to me.

8. Do not take anything strange or foreign, from elsewhere, into our union.

9. Do not misrepresent me or our union to others.

10. Be happy and content with our union and all therein.

“If you keep these things in your heart and in your mind and DO them, you will ‘be Holy as I AM Holy’ for we shall be One.”

Thought about Power and Riches

I woke up from sleep recently with a thought:

Amassing power in this world is a lot like being a great gladiator in Roman times. You are renown worldwide. You are given riches, women, and a great many perks. You possess great skill in your craft and yet…

You are still a slave.

You are still not a true member of the kingdom.

You are still not free to walk about as you wish.

You still have someone’s branding on your body.

In fact, ALL that you have accumulated as a gladiator ends up being the very things that distracts you from the Truth:

YOU ARE NOT AND WILL NEVER BE FREE.

You are a slave, forever and always, so long as you accept your current state and continue to do your master’s bidding.

What if?

Today, God has put on my heart to post an entry from my journal. This is one that I wrote back in May 2016.

What if THIS LIFE isn’t really about what we THINK it is?

What if TRUE REALITY is the opposite of everything this world has taught us?

What if “your” life really isn’t about you? What if it’s about providing a service to everyone else?

What if it’s about community rather than singularity? What if every individual was willing to live not for themselves but ONLY for everyone else? What if each one of us was willing to die for any one of us?

What if eternal life wasn’t just an idea?

What if we weren’t trapped in a system designed to enslave us and turn us against one another? What if were free? What if we are free?

What if we finally DECIDED to open our eyes and see the truth? What if the truth was WITHIN rather than without?

What if heaven was the result of an understanding rather than a destination?

What if we are here only to bring others to that understanding? What if we were to GROW UP and embrace that understanding?

What if that understanding was the key to our freedom and independence rather than science, technology or politics?

What if this was the ONLY way?

What if…

Understanding Humility

Everyone of us, at some point in our lives, have heard someone advise “be humble”. In fact, we ourselves might have passed on that same wisdom to others. Many times however, this advice is offered simply as a survival tip, but is there more to it than that? Is being humble merely the act of lowering ourselves in the eyes of others so as to avoid the social consequences of this world, or is it a transformation, a metamorphosis of the self? If we’re being honest, we already know that it’s the latter. Humility pertains to a true self-transformation rather than a deception of oneself and an appeal to others. Two questions then remain, how does one be-come humble and who is the true judge of our humility?

“[True] Humility is the acceptance that we are created beings, made by God, The Creator of all things.”

What Is Our Authentic Identity?

It is my opinion that existence as we know it is all about choice. More importantly ONE choice; one from which all subsequent others are made. That choice is one of identity. It presents itself as the question that plagues us, demanding that we seek out an answer; Who Am I? What is my identity? Many have consciously forgotten about this question and have consequently on a subconscious level sought out its potential answers in the accumulation of things; wealth, pleasure, power etc.  Others, either through wisdom or experience, understand that “the truth [isn’t] out there” but rather it is within. With regards to identity, is there such a thing as an “Authentic Identity” and if so, how are we authenticated? Let us examine these questions.

“Authentic Identity is the remaining in sameness of a genuine, and real self in the exact likeness of (…) in our nature and quality.”

LIFWISDOM 2.0

It has been about a year since my last post. Much has changed in that time and simultaneously, nothing has changed. My path, just as before, is still one of searching, seeking, of something perceived, yet not easily attained because of the distraction of this world- the already ingrained dogmas I’ve already accepted as Truth. What I seek nothing less than a total metamorphosis akin to the caterpillar turning into butterfly. I know that identity exists, I’ve seen it. God saw it wise to show me my butterfly identity, the one that is as “gold tried in the fire,” (Rev 3:18) the one able to soar the skies, becoming a new being with a new mind and a new perspective drastically different from my former self. A perspective that is in His image, in His likeness.

This past year has been abundant in lessons, tests, and epiphanies, all leading me to understand the importance of this LIFWISDOM page I started on impulse.  I realize that I do have an important message to share with the world, to those who would listen. As I observe the world, I can see for myself what I later read and understood from Revelation 3: 17: we think that we are “rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know[] not that [we] [are] wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.” We have become a society submerged in ambiguity and total absence of authentic identity. We, collectively and individually, have forgotten who we really are. It is for this reason that I have changed the slogan of my page to “A Path To The Real You”.

My goal is to, as often as possible, write on different, everyday topics from a new perspective to invoke thought and meditation. I will also share my thoughts, insights, and questions I ponder at any given time, as an alternate means of communicating and fellowship. This will be done to help all of us who are and should be “asking, seeking and knocking” to find something we can add to our tool bag on the path to our true selves.

Welcome To LIFWISDOM!
