My vision of how we can improve the world!

Each great movement of Christian Spiritual renewal has followed some technological development from the time that Adam and Eve left the garden to start work.

First was agriculture and animal husbandry changing man's way of interacting with the Earth and praising God. Then cuneiform developed (God led?) and it was a migration into trading and cities and the Patriarch faith.

Moses brought Egyptian technology to the Jewish slaves and with it came God's gift of God's law and the tabernacle. Bronze working developed ability for war that resulting in a requirement by people for Kings and God developed the Temple to allow people to worship through the now modern temple and sacrificial system.

The nations developed and Israel was captured and melded into the first Empires which developed due to the advances in technology of iron, war machines and cultural controls.

Jesus came into a world being overwhelmed with Empire technology. The advanced road systems and ubiquitous Greek writing gave feet to the gospel.

Later, the printing press enable the Anabaptists, Anglicans and Lutherans to understand God's word and get it to the masses, changing the top down dictatorial control of man and putting Godly people in control of churches (although they split the church hugely with individual differences).

The press allowed each individual to touch and understand God's word fostering the reformation.
 


My great wish today is to see God's next revolution that is taking place using the new technologies, accepted and used by Christians, instead of being feared and rejected!


I pray we will stop lying to ourselves and respect truth for what it is wherever it is found.

The internet and other mediums are great growth places. People want to know truth! Months ago I started this blog so as to have the ability to reach over hundred's of people each month with interesting and evoking ideas that I hope and pray will help them with their lives. (how about helping me a bit by spreading the word).

Being able to help and care for you all is a very special gift God has given me.
I love you folk with the love of the Lord and pray that each day this blog can help you with your life in a small way.

Togther we touch people for Christ from all over the world. We make their lives that little bit better! We can be missionaries every day!

Why do we as Christians reject this reality?
Why don't we have a powerful funded Internet church caring for the poor, widows and hurting people? Why are we not training Cyber-Pastors? Why are we so old fashioned that we cling to a bible translated in 1611 that uses words nobody understands?

Why are we not ambassadors for great change, and leading the way with care and compassion?
Why is there no technological place where we can pool our collective resources to build the new caring and loving world for Christ?

Let's put aside our petty differences and reach our world with our Father's love!

That's my thought for today! Maybe we can all encourage someone else today and make their lives just a little better?

Have a great day!

How perfect is perfect?


 
Ever lived with a perfectionist?


I have
, or at least as close to a perfectionist as I would want to live with. My mother was a person who would not tolerate imperfection (I guess I was a disappointment on that scale!) She has a perfectly clean house and everything is exactly in a specific place, not a smidgeon out of place. I was taught to keep my room perfectly clean. The closets and drawers each had exact contents in exact places.

 I guess the one action that she did when I was a young adult provides a great example of the perfection that I lived under. It was this. . .

 Please picture a tired university student who had been up at 4am to start the day. This young man had traveled 2hours by bus to get to class, been in exhausting class after class and labs all day, came home on a bus over bumpy roads for another 2hours, and was now studying by the light of his desk lamp in a darken room at 9pm in the evening. In the pool of light is a disarray of textbooks open onto different pages, pens and pencils lying around, notebooks with notes here and there, and one notebook open to where an essay was being writing (in those days we didn’t have computers and word processors).

 
 This tired student feels a call of nature and heads to the washroom(toilet) and upon returning, all of his books have been closed with a scrap of paper neatly marking the page on which they had previously been opened. They are now in a single pile from largest to smallest book with the bits of paper peaking out from each book making it look like a weird cataloging system.

The pens had been ordered into pens and pencil groups, from largest to smallest. All gathered together like the bodies of dead soldiers awaiting burial. The eraser and sharpener are neatly placed at the head of this group like a tombstones.

 That was my view of perfection taken to a limit that we just don’t need!

 
 I know my mother loved me and was just showing her love, but I wish she could have found a different way to show it!

I give this example to show that as humans when we go after perfection, we just screw it up.
God does not expect us to be perfect and loves us with all our blemishes before we even know to love Him. Our Father is perfect, but in a loving and non-demanding way.

 
 “Get real!” I can hear someone say! “God has these laws that he wants us to follow that are impossible to follow!”. Let’s be honest, following all the laws is impossible because we have selfish, ignorant and nasty streaks in us that makes sure we can never be anything but imperfect. That is, we are imperfect if it was not for the compensations that God makes for us.

 
The bible says “ when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears”[1] an this is true. When we accept Jesus’ way of life and what he does for us, and let Holy Spirit take control of guiding our lives, our Father God through Jesus(the perfect) makes our imperfections disappear. He removes those nasty, selfish and sometimes ignorant things we do that cause us and others pain.

 So, if you live with someone who is trying to be God, who has missed the mark, and thinks their value in life is striving after being perfect, remember they are not perfect until our Father makes them that way. We are all in the same situation! Let’s give them and ourselves room to make mistakes, but know that through God’s love, even those mistakes are made perfect.

Perfect is just that, and we can be that way, but not in our own strength!

 Hey, have a wonderfully perfect day!


Ps 119:97
To all perfection I see a limit;
       but your commands are boundless. (NIV)

 Ps 119:97 “I’ve learned that everything has its limits.
 
        But your commands are perfect.
They are always there when I need them.” (NIRV)

 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Matthew 5:48

When things go the wrong way!

Pitfalls!
Setbacks!
Persecution!
Lack of vision!
Courage fails!
Waiting! 


Have you every thought that sometimes no matter what we do, life takes an apparent downward turn! 
 

I just heard of a lady that works with me who with great anticipation, and with great personal cost, moved from Canada to India. She was adamant that it was the best thing for her career that she could do! She got her husband to agree, despite misgivings, had packed her house, and taken her little four year old with her! She was to take over a responsible roll at a major software consulting company in India.
 

Then it happened! She got to India and started the job. Then, in the middle of culture shock and new job stress, her four year old fell off a five story balcony and got killed! What a tragedy! What a setback! What pain!
 

This was an accident, but the conditions leading up to it will probably hunt her thoughts for years. Anguish will ensue if she cannot allow God’s blessing to bring some healing! Often we hang onto pain as if by letting go of the pain we have to let go of the person’s memories as well. That is of course foolish, but we somehow believe it anyhow. I pray that this young lady can move on and while the grief will be part of her life, it can be threaded into successful life experience and used to help others.
 

However this is only one type of setback. Another is the type where people carefully lay out traps we unwittingly walk into. Another is where we are doing right but someone or some group has a hatred for us and persecutes us no matter what we do to try and help them understand the situation and correct it. I have just heard that in a Buddhist country there is 20 churches being destroyed and there are plans to kill 200 missionaries. Please pray for them!
 

“Salvation belongs to our God,
 
   who sits on the throne,
 
   and to the Lamb."
 is what the bible says!  

It doesn’t say that it will be easy however. Every day even in the America’s and Europe, us God followers are persecuted by those living around us simply because we are different. Laws speak of discrimination being illegal, but it seems that Christians like many minority groups are not supported well by these laws.
 

In our work environments, others can get special treatment instead of us and are invited into the “in” groups. We can get left out because we don’t drink and swear so people think we don’t want to party! Hey, I love a good party!
 The bible also says

Psalm 119:
81
I deeply long for you to save me.
 
      I have put my hope in your word.  
82 My eyes grow tired looking for what you have promised.
 
      I say, "When will you comfort me?"  
83 I'm as useless as a wineskin that smoke has dried up.
 
      But I don't forget to follow your orders.  
84 How long do I have to wait?
 
      When will you punish those who attack me?  
85 Proud people do what is against your law.
 
      They dig pits for me to fall into.  
86 All of your commands can be trusted.
 
      Help me, because people attack me without any reason.  
87 They almost wiped me off the face of the earth.
 
      But I have not turned away from your rules.  
88 Keep me alive, because you love me.
 
      Then I will obey the covenant laws you have given. (NIRV) 

Here we see that we can feel very “got at” as a God follower, but we need to hold onto God’s guidelines for our lives. They will keep us “alive”. Without these guidelines we are “walking dead”. Life looses its intensity, energy and power as we loose out on Holy Spirit working vibrantly within our lives. God “in me” is more important than incoming problems! 
 

We need to focus on God’s love for us and continue giving His love away to those around us. In this way we continue to meet our purpose on earth no matter what circumstances surround us. God’s love and compassion will console us and stop us from becoming revengeful, falsely accusing ourselves and others, and turn us away from selfish, ignorant and nasty things that we could become involved it.
 

Isn’t it great to have such wonderful wisdom and love protecting us!

Happiness, Contentment and getting wronged without cause!
Have you every been blamed for something you had no part in! 


Indignation can consume us when we get blamed for something
we do that takes wrong turn we didn’t predict is tough enough, but when we get blamed for doing something we didn’t even do it really gets tough not to retaliate in some way.

 

 Now I am a fighter!Have been since I was a boy! In those days I would settle my differences with fists and fury. Then I became a Christian, and for the first while I changed that for words and anger. The problem with it all is that if we give into this retaliatory behaviour, we damage ourselves (even if we inflict more physical or psychological damage on the other person).

 

The worst part is that if I fight, I loose the wonderful peace and joy that is part of my life now!

The experience of God’s leading and calm in my life is far more important to me than “getting back” at someone. Now days I understand what Jesus was getting at when he said “love you enemies”! Radical! That’s how Jesus was and is!

 

Okay, so to get back to dealing with these people who wrong us, what do we do?

 

Well firstly, get understanding of exactly what they are saying. Sometimes it’s us that read intentions into words and we get it all wrong. Everyone talks from their viewpoint and so, tough as it is, we have to try and take a look from their viewpoint. Maybe it’s just a misunderstanding. Those can normally be sorted out by a loving response showing we have heard and understand but that the facts are not quite as the other person sees them.

 

Unfortunately life is not just, and sometimes people just don’t care, they’re out to get us for apparently no reason, or a wrong reason! In this case trying to discuss the situation will just devolve into angry statements from them as a minimum.

So, we simply ignore them and prepare ourselves with a simple statement of the facts that makes NO statement about the other person
for interested third parties who may approach us for the information.

 

As a good friend of mine says, “Sanity will prevail”. People will judge for themselves so give them facts. If we react negatively against the other person, anyone asking us about the situation will put us into the same group as the person mistreating us. It’s far easier to label us a “fighting” with person x if we speak or take action against them.

Fighting evil is the Christian way, but we do it by "loving" others!

 

Now a word of caution! This does not mean we become a slave to an abusive person. They have no right to dictate what we do (unless they are in authority over us as agreed to by us ourseloves at some time, or they have authority by God’s guidelines!)

 

What I am trying to say is that it is far better to learn from God’s loving guidelines, let them fear God’s retaliation, put our hope in God’s word, unfailing love and compassion, keeping our heart blameless, than loosing our peace and joy by reacting in a poor manner!

 

Love can be tough, but its worth it! Even when it comes to loving our enemies!

 
Hey, have a blessed productive and joy fulled day!

Happiness, Contentment and Arrogant backbiting!

When it happens, when that person who is respected turns on us, and discusses us negatively behind our backs,  it HURTS!
 


The pain we get is significant if we let it get inside of us. If we have respected and trusted the person it is twice as painful!
 

That saying of “Sticks and stones can hurt my bones, but words can never hurt me!” is wrong!” Words hurt plenty! That’s part of being a person. No other creature can be reduced to tears by words. Okay! So the stoic guys aren’t often reduced to tears, but you know what I am getting at!
 

The pain of being undermined and talked against is more effective because we cannot defend ourselves. If we cannot hear what is said we cannot confront the person in a fair manner and so the situation can tend to cause us to become unfair to reciprocate. Its like an illness getting into our lives. It can infect us, and it tends to move onto infecting others. Rumors abound and we can easily start to get selfish and nasty. It takes God’s strength and wisdom to deal with this correctly.
 

The bible makes this statement in this regard:
 
“Lord, be good to me
 
      as you have promised.  
Increase my knowledge and give me good sense,
 
      because I believe in your commands.  
Before I went through suffering, I went down the wrong path.
 
      But now I obey your word.  
You are good, and what you do is good.
 
      Teach me your orders.  
Proud people have spread lies about me and have taken away my good name.
 
      But I follow your rules with all my heart.  
Their hearts are hard and stubborn. They don't feel anything.
 
      But I take delight in your law.  
It was good for me to suffer.
 
      That's what helped me to understand your orders.  
The law you gave is worth more to me 
      than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.”[1] 

So the first thing we need to understand is that we must not “loose it” and start reacting because we will simply regret it later! We need to take hold of our emotions, keep them in check and gain as much knowledge about the situation as possible. You know that saying “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Well it applies to this situation. By protesting loudly we can in fact announce that we are guilty as charged. People will watch our reaction and if we appear to over-react, they will believe the rumor.
 

SO step one is to put emotions on hold and gain knowledge. A good friend of mine has a saying “Sanity will prevail!” If those around us see we are reacting calmly and without emotion, they are more likely to understand that the rumors are unfounded. If we start to avoid the other person, or to spread counter arguments we are less likely to be believed.
 

But this is not enough! God wants us to be healed and not hurt.
 

That is why it says “
      But I follow your rules with all my heart. “ 

God tells us to forgive! Now, let’s be honest, this is very difficult! Particularly if we come from an abusive background in the past, but God loves us and he knows that for us to move through the situation without picking up injury, we need to forgive! He also know it is really hard to do! 
 

What makes it more difficult is that often the offending person(s) are arrogant, hard and stubborn! God understands! Think that Jesus got crucified because of rumors that were untrue. Have we died a terribly painful death due to the words of others? I don’t think so!
 

Is it possible that God understands better than we do? 
 

So we need to forgive! For us! It sets us free and enables us to move on without the pain. “sanity will prevail”
 

Next ask God to intervene in the situation and leave the resolution up to Him. This is an active action on our part. It is biblical to do this and it is a release for our anger. 
 

The last part of the dealing with the situation is to evaluate what we understand they have being saying. Let’s be sure that we are not protecting our pride since that is God’s to protect not ours!

There is a truth we need to consider, and that is that words that come close to the truth are often the ones that anger us most! The worst words are ones that are nearly true. We need to see what we have been doing that gave the rumors their “feet”. Perhaps we have been meeting someone in non-public places, we can correct that by meeting in public places only. That does more to correct the rumor than angry denial! Perhaps we have been talking about another, but not in the way they have be re-wording it for others. BY simply stopping talking in this way, we can correct and defuse the situation.
 

What we need to do is ask Holy Spirit for guidance. There are many examples of how to defuse these types of situation in our bible. Investigate these and see what can be applied since the guidelines in the sacred writings have depth and truth that ensure the best way out of bad situations.
 

Let’s be built up by the experience and not broken down!

This takes courage, self control and God’s love, but is the best way to go. So, lets go forgive and arrogant person today! 

Have a good one!

Alpha and Omega. . .
 

Alpha is the first Greek letter and Omega is the last. They symbolize the BEGINNING and the END.

The Christian bible has Jesus stating

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,

the First and the Last,

the Beginning and the End.”1


Now the Christian bible also has another interesting part where this Guy Moses asks God who he is and God says, "I am who I am . This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.' "2 so we see Jesus is saying he is God in this statement since the words I AM refer both to Jesus and God at the same time.

Also notice that he doesn’t say he was AT the beginning. He says he IS the beginning. Then he points out he IS also the end. You see we as Christians believe Jesus is the creator and sustainer of everything. He is the glue that holds life together. The scientists are still trying to find the God particle, but Jesus is the God behind the particle!

Okay, so what about us? We have beginning and ends as well, and between the two we have our lives. The Christian bible puts it this way. . .

the LORD God formed the man [ADAM]

from the dust of the ground

and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life,

and the man became a living being3


Some one has said we are made from star dust. Wiki Answers points out we are made up as follows:

  1. Oxygen (65%)

  2. Carbon (18%)

  3. Hydrogen (10%)

  4. Nitrogen (3%)

  5. Calcium (1.5%)

  6. Phosphorus (1.0%)

  7. Potassium (0.35%)

  8. Sulfur (0.25%)

  9. Sodium (0.15%)

  10. Magnesium (0.05%)

  11. Copper, Zinc, Selenium, Molybdenum, Fluorine, Chlorine, Iodine, Manganese, Cobalt, Iron (0.70%)

  12. There are also trace amounts of Lithium, Strontium, Aluminum, Silicon, Lead, Vanadium, Arsenic and Bromine

This means we are worth a few $’s worth of chemicals when everything is boiled down to basic components! But the breath of God is priceless!

We work our lives away and end up in the same state we started, as dust! WE all have a terminal illness. . . life! We will all die and decompose one way or the other! The bible puts it this way. . .

By the sweat of your brow

you will eat your food

until you return to the ground,

since from it you were taken;

for dust you are

and to dust you will return."4

Take the water out of us and burn us and we end up as ash! A pile of dirt!

But we are more than dust and ash. We are alive! We influence each other and our environment, and if we understand we are also spiritual we actually can speak to and influence God himself! One biblical example is Abraham who negotiates with God to save his nephew and some other people at Sodom in ancient times. Abraham says

Then Abraham spoke up again:

"Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord,

though I am nothing but dust and ashes,”

He knew what he was in God’s creation but knew God had given us a special relationship. It’s one where we can communicate with God and Abraham was using it!

We are considered very important to God and he gave this Earth and everything in it to us! The bible says it this way:

"What is man that you are mindful of him,

the son of man that you care for him?

You made him a little lower than the angels;

you crowned him with glory and honor

and put everything under his feet."5

God has great love for us and really wants us to be partners with him in running this Earth. The problem is that we don’t get it, and we want to run this Earth ourselves without consulting God. We think we know better than God and so we screw it up! The current global warming may be one of those screw ups, but we do lots of them! A Few years ago it was the ozone layer(we seem to have fixed that screw up at least). What will it be tomorrow? We need to understand who we are and who God is and what he wants!

We have responsibility to God! The bible puts it this way:

Love the LORD, all his saints!

The LORD preserves the faithful,

but the proud he pays back in full.”6


God loves us but when we get stuck up with pride in ourselves, he gives us what we ask for and we often don’t find we like it! Then we have got only one way to go if we are wise! We have to go back to understanding we are dust and God is God!

The ancients had a way of doing this in a way that we no longer do (and its probably just as well because it’s rather messy).

They would take off their fine clothing and jewelry, and put on the cheapest cloth available, and cover themselves with ashes. It’s difficult to feel proud in that state! It says in the writings about priest who need to repent needed to do the following:

[ A Call to Repentance ]

Put on sackcloth, O priests, and mourn;

wail, you who minister before the altar.

Come, spend the night in sackcloth,

you who minister before my God;”7


We need to understand that we are not worth anything without the power of God in us and with us. When we get full of ourselves and full of pride, we need to remember who we really are! The ancients got into sackcloth and ashes to remind them! They could not look important in that state, so it helped them get to the right mental attitude.

That’s where we need to be if we are to meet with God. It’s sometimes not a bad thing to have difficulties that take us down, because as we go down we get closer to acknowledging God is who he says he is! This is the place we need to get to before we start to experience the good things God has for us!

Then we need to believe God is who he says he is. In Christian terms they call it having faith!

Then in Psalm 103:12 it says

“as far

as the east is from the west,

so far

has he removed our transgressions from us.”

“Transgressions” is another big word for the selfish ignorant and nasty things we have done wrong! The bible calls these “sins” to summarize them under one word. In simple terms, if we accept Jesus is God’s son, that he came to let us know about God’s plans for us, and we decide to follow what Jesus says and believe in God, learning to love Father God, then Jesus takes away all these selfish, nasty and ignorant things we have ever done and gives us a new experience of life with Him!

The sins are gone because Jesus stands in front of us when God comes to Judge us! He asks his Dad not to touch us, since he is taking responsibility for everything we did wrong! (Wow! To think of things I have done that I am not proud of and Jesus takes responsibility for it all!)

The bible puts it this way in John 3:16

For God so loved the world

that he gave his one and only Son,

that whoever believes in him

will not die

but have eternal life.”

So, if we believe then Jesus gives us the right to rule everything the right way and we get to have eternal life as well!

We have free choice and the gift is free if we accept who Jesus is AND we then live our lives within this acceptance! This means we need to believe what Jesus said and try and align our lives with Gods will for us so that our lives purpose is FULFILLED!

The bible describes the coming to heaven of the nations in symbolic language. It describes our clean state with God as us having “white robes”, and our attitude to peace by us holding “palm branches” and waving them. It also symbolizes Jesus as the “lamb” of God. This is because in the old days lambs were killed and their blood poured on the ancient altars to allow people to be forgiven for selfish, nasty and ignorant things they had done. This no longer happens since Jesus died on the cross as he was the last sacrifice!

John who got given this vision of heaven in the bible says:

After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude

that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and

language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb.

They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches

in their hands.”

Then in Revelations 22 it says we will be given ability to drink from a river that gives everlasting life (I don’t get how, but I get the symbology!). There is also a tree that has leaves that heal. The different nations in heaven will not be having arguments and conflict. In fact, there is no painful work, arguments and conflict in heaven! We are able to just know things without learning them (that’s cool!). Amazingly everything is brilliantly lit by this aura or glory that flows from God. No having to switch on a light to see, and no getting tired! So no need to sleep! (Cool!).

Now the bible says about us “They will rule for ever and ever.”

We cannot rule unless there is something following our rules, so obviously we will be given responsibility and something to rule. We are NOT going to be sitting on clouds with harps! That’s a crazy commercial idea! Let’s get that one out of our heads!

I wouldn’t be interested in a heaven with harps, clouds, white cloths and singing all the time. Not my scene! However walking down the streets of God city, in an amazing place doing good useful stuff, easily, without pain and tiredness, and being with everyone who we love from the past, present and future will be really great!

Jesus said he would come again and we must be ready.

I am, are you?

Do you know Father God, Jesus and have God’s amazing Holy Spirit guiding you through your life’s purpose.

I sure hope so!

Hey, have a great day!
