The truth will set you free

Help me in my unbelief.  That is what the man cried out when he wanted his son healed.  Here is a bit from that passage: Mark 9:22 And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” 23…

Spirit of Cain

1 John 3:12 We should not be like Cain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own deeds were evil and his brother’s righteous.   Ouch!  What do we do with that? Remember we need to use our “mind of Christ.”  God is love.…

Steadfast Love

Psalms 118:1 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! (ESV) I really feel like we have missed it.  We have spun around and around in circles looking for something that has been there all along.  We have turned to religion and found condemnation.  We have turned…

Mediation of revelation

In the last few posts I’ve been trying to reveal a new way to see mediation.  In our fallen nature we are dead to a loving God.  We lost our connection in the Garden after being poisoned by forbidden fruit.  Adam ran from God, instead of to God.  In a moment, Adam went from walking…

Monopoly Money

  The currency of Heaven is the power of God.  When we agree with “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven” we are agreeing to the exchange of Heavenly currency.  That is what Jesus used while on Earth.  That is what we get to use as His children.  That…

Flesh and Spirit: part 1

Flesh and Spirit.  When you see those words together do you have a reaction?  Religion uses these terms to manipulate and terrorize people into obedient submission.  Pastors use the “you better not be living in the flesh” threat to keep people behaving (at least on the outside).  In this journey of “gifts” (check out this post)…

He is loveable

In the last post “Worthy of our trust” I talked about how important it is for us to trust Him.  When we surrender our thinking and trust in the truth that He is that good we begin to “see” truths of His nature emerge.  It is so exciting when we go from words on paper…
