What does it mean to be “Spirit led”?
   
ARkGlory.jpg
 
“We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey.” ~ Stephen R. Covey

 Stephen Covey wrote that best seller “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” so it is interesting that he points out this rather obvious fact to us all.

We are all spiritual!

Despite the arguments against this, our human history shows that without a god to worship, man develops one!

Today it is less popular to admit this fact, so we develop gods others will see as non-gods.

Many people worship themselves (Wow! they must know that god fails frequently). Others worship rock stars and various paper and cartoon heroes. Some worship people who reach the top of a specific field, have wealth, are sports stars. Yet others worship distorted aspects of science (such as evolutionism, scientism, astrology, etc.) There are many other things which with just a little thought, us  average people can list as being worshipped with no difficulty at all. (Hey, how about Oprah?)

We seem to have an inbuilt need to worship because we are spiritual and just “need” to do so.

Some people like Richard Dawkins worship “atheism” in an attempt to free themselves of that which they cannot admit to themselves! Anyone watching that man talk knows he simply worships at a different throne. Talk about faith!

What makes the worship spiritual? We do!

Since we are spiritual beings, when we worship, we worship in mind and spirit. We cannot do anything else!

Yet not all spirits are related to the God of Christian belief, the God who came to Earth as Jesus Christ, the God of whom Jesus said;

What I’m about to tell you is true. Anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. In fact, he will do even greater things. That is because I am going to the Father.
13 And I will do anything you ask in my name. Then the Son will bring glory to the Father. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name. I will do it.
15 If you love me, you will obey what I command. 16 I will ask the Father. And he will give you another Friend to help you and to be with you forever. 17 The Friend is the Spirit of truth. The world can’t accept him. That is because the world does not see him or know him. But you know him. He lives with you, and he will be in you.”[1]

Jesus promised the Spirit of truth, which later came to be known as Holy Spirit!

This Spirit arrived in a miraculous way on a specific day in the past. You can read about it in the bible Acts 2. Now, to get back to our discussion...

We have human minds, but we also have a connection to the spiritual world in some way that is not yet fully understood.

 
They have found a part of the brain that if stimulated gives a feeling of a spiritual experience! Why do we have it if it is not to enable us to connect to something spiritually? Think of it as a translation means that God can use to give us meaning. A spiritual connectivity plug! Like ears are a sound connectivity plug to the human voice!

Without input there is no output right?

Why have this spiritual connection  if we aren’t spiritual?

Maybe we are spiritual, and God put this in place in our development as people, to enable us to have clear communication between ourselves and Him?

We are told we have to have faith to connect into spiritual experiences.

Is this weird?

I don’t really think so. Here is why...

We sure see faith in action every day of our lives! One example, is the number of non-logical weird faith statements I hear from friend’s and acquaintance’s around worship areas such as various sports star abilities. These faith statements can be quite amazing!  Rather “out there” types of statements!

Then, some of these folk, criticize me for faith in a God who has proved his existence to me, by helping me through difficulties all my life!

 
Who are the ones that need a little help here? :)

Okay, so faith is a connector from the human side, and God feeds back to us through our minds in various ways. God taps on our spiritual emotion connection in different ways. God gives us words from the bible that we read that emphasise specific things, sometimes God changes circumstances to lead the way for us, and then sometimes others are used by God to guide us.

These and more are the ways  within the almost infinite repertoire of nuances God uses to let us know spiritual truths.

Then, out of these experiences we try to communicate this to others.

Sadly, often, they think we are nuts!

The bible explains some of this as follows,

6 The words we speak to those who have grown in the faith are wise. Our words are different from the words of the wise people or rulers of this world. People like that aren’t going anywhere. 7 No, we speak about God’s secret wisdom. His wisdom has been hidden. But before time began, God planned that his wisdom would bring us heavenly glory.
8 None of the rulers of this world understood God’s wisdom. If they had, they would not have nailed the Lord of glory to the cross.[2]

God reveals to us things that don’t always quite make sense!

Things like that a middle class, non-educated carpenter, from a tiny town that is considered a low life place of the times, will be the person who will save the world!

Sounds like it would be considered trivial nonsense to a logical thinking upper class person of the day, wouldn’t it?

It even sounds relatively like nonsense for an upper class or intellectual person of today, who has not yet experienced Holy Spirit’s power!

Yet, God says

“No eye has seen,
    no ear has heard,
no mind has known
    what God has prepared for those who love him.” (Isaiah 64:4)

We are to experience things that are literally out of our minds!

That means that even with today’s ability to create simulated realities that are absolutely wonderful to conceive, we cannot get to what God has already prepared, because our minds ability to process just doesn’t get there!

 Think of it like this...  It would be rather like asking an earthworm to experience the joy of great music in an huge auditorium. All experienced while overlooking the splendor of a mountainous valley filled with mysterious splendours of the fauna and flora of nature. The valley drops down between mountains, but in the far distance opens out into a vista of surf crashing over stark rocks of a sunlit sea. All this perceived, while drinking exotic drinks and tasting cocktails that tantalize our senses.

No earthworm can get that type of experience, right?

In the same way we cannot start to understand heaven!


Even the bible representations are just slivers of the reality that will actually be there. That’s why Jesus never fully spelled it out for us. Human words just can’t do it!

I have reflected enough on the glories awaiting us as Christians, so let’s get back to the spiritual thinking and how we have to experience God in the now.

But God has shown it to us through his Spirit.

The Spirit understands all things. He understands even the deep things of God. 11 Who can know the thoughts of another person? Only a person’s own spirit can know them. In the same way, only the Spirit of God knows God’s thoughts[3]

The problem is finding the right spirit!

Not all spirit’s are God’s Spirit!

In fact, since Satan and his cronies are spirits that love imitating God, there are plenty other spirits trying to mislead us.

The test we need to use, is whether the spirit leads us into misusing God’s word.

Since God’s Holy Spirit will only act in God’s nature, everything written as guidelines in the bible are supported and enabled by God’s Holy Spirit!

If it appears that we are getting spiritual advice that is not supported by the bible writings, then “beware”, it is probably a sulphur smelling spirit that is misleading us into evil paths!

Perhaps you think I am crazy writing these words? Perhaps I am! But consider what the bible says,

12 We have not received the spirit of the world. We have received the Spirit who is from God. The Spirit helps us understand what God has freely given us.
13 That is what we speak about. We don’t use words taught to us by people. We use words taught to us by the Holy Spirit. We use the words of the Spirit to teach the truths of the Spirit.
14 Some people don’t have the Holy Spirit. They don’t accept the things that come from the Spirit of God. Things like that are foolish to them. They can’t understand them. In fact, such things can’t be understood without the Spirit’s help.[4]

Holy Spirit helps me to understand the words God has written for us in the bible.

Yet even in this activity, some people will read the words and not get it!

Without Holy Spirit triggering understanding, often these words are dry and devoid of life. God isn’t dry and devoid of life, but rejecting Him means that we fail to invoke the power that enables us to experience life to the full.

It’s rather like an iPod without any more battery power is useless. The iPod needs a separate power source to fill and enable it before it can give us those musical experiences we desire.

God needs to fill and enable us to give us those spiritual experiences we desire!

Consider if you are empowered!

Then amazingly the bible says...

Everyone who has the Spirit can judge all things. But no one can judge those who have the Spirit. It is written,
16 “Who can ever know what is in the Lord’s mind?

Can anyone ever teach him?” (
Isaiah 40:13)
But we have the mind of Christ.”[5]

Enabled by God! We have knowledge that exceeds that of those around us.

This does not make us superior! No!

It enables us to serve God and those around us with quality and love.

Holy Spirit makes the difference in each day! I sure hope Holy Spirit will make a difference in your day!

Ever wonder why the Egyptians turned on the Hebrews? They loved Joseph to start with didn’t they?


 
redseacrossing.jpg
  
Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I am Pharaoh. But without your word, no one will do anything in the whole land of Egypt.”~ Gen 41:44

Have you seen Joseph and the amazing Technicolor dream coat by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Tim Rice?

It is a musical that portrays the story of Joseph, cast out by his brothers to be a slave in Egypt, but who becomes second only to Pharaoh in the land.

Then he brings in his family and the Hebrews grow into a huge group under this protection. Then, suddenly this changes, and they are turned into slaves and treated badly. Why? What could have made the difference? Is this perhaps just a made up story? Is there anything that could lead us to believe this could have happened?

Egypt was a powerful country in the early civilized world. Their pharaohs were considered god’s and they had a sophisticated culture and reasonably strong army.

They however, seem to have allowed a loose group of people from Syria and Palestine to settle in the northern delta region. Then according to Manetho, an ancient Egyptian historian and priest in his Volume 2 covering Dynasties XII-XIX, they grew into force to be reckoned with. This group was in the North and in the South of Egypt the Numians were giving Egypt problems.

The northern group became known as the Hyksos and in around 1720BC they made the region near tell ed-Dab’a their center of control. They built strength and in 1675BC they took on the Egyptians and took control of the middle of the country as well.

This group was not pure Egyptian! They included peoples of semitic origins and the Egyptians in their normal tradition made the Hyksos leaders their Pharoahs. It is thought that the Hyksos had promoted trade with the Levant (the future promised land region).

Perhaps Joseph was accepted into a country that was relatively positive towards Hebrew and Semitic peoples at the time he entered. However, the pure Egyptian’s resented this invasion of the Hyksos and in time turned against them, and literally expelled them from the land, (About 240 thousand had to leave almost overnight).

It was Kamose from Thebes that ejected the Hyksos after the battle of Nefrusi at Hermopolis.

This could have begun the persecution of the Israelites. The Egyptian rulers hated the Semitic peoples because of the Hyksos. They destroyed everything the Hyksos had done and tried to eradicate their presence from the land.

Perhaps that is the reason why we find the need for Moses to remove his people from slavery.


Isn’t it interesting how God’s people were subject to stresses and strains in the environments that were not of their making? Stress that caused a whole nation of people huge pain and slavery.

Surely a God who loves people and specifically chooses a nation would not do this?

That’s what a lot of people want to think!

When the times get difficult or Christians meet adversity they consider that God is failing somehow.

This is not true! The Egyptian experience built a rag tag family group into a tribe and the exodus from Egypt, built them into a nation. This was part of forming a solid national identity that even today we feel. How many people worldwide have no knowledge of Israel and the Jewish peoples? Somehow they are known as a tiny by powerful nation.

God similarly doesn’t let us go through tough times for no reason!


To build powerful peoples, one needs powerful experiences! Negative experiences teach much if we are willing to use them to learn.

So today if life is a bit tough, if good times have turned bad for a while, know that you have an option.

Together with God we can endure and grow, or alternatively we can buckle and fade. Without listening to God, the Hebrews would still be Egyptian slaves. Listening to God enabled them to be a nation that broadcast the love of God and the power of Jesus to the world.

Let’s tap into the same source of strength and let Holy Spirit guide us through our troubled times and make us into better people.

Have a great day!

Be scared, or be wise!
   
arguementfight.jpg
  
The town bully was a danger to all who didn’t fit in with his agenda.


Boys were divided into two categories according to this thug
, those who did what he told them and were his cronies, or those that were to be the object of his derision and persuasions, most of which were humiliation or being subjected to pain.

Thinking of that bully and his friends always makes me think of Satan and those who follow him. A bully tries to force people to be subject to him and punishes those who he cannot gather into his fold. Those who follow him have a false sense of security don’t they?

Unfortunately for the town bully, and fortunately for the rest of us, there are higher authorities. One of whom is the chief of police in the town! News of the young bully finally came to the police station. The chief of police paid the bully’s parents a call and had the young thug brought to him.

Without raising his voice or even threatening the young bully, he explained that if the bullying continued, there were laws that would come into force and there would be consequences to the young mans actions. He asked the young man to consider what he wanted to do with his life. He offered him programs he could attend to overcome this habit he had fallen into, and even offered to mentor the young man himself. He warned the young man he was approaching the age when he would be tried as an adult. The Chief then asked his parent to guide the young man in the correct direction in life and then he left the bully to decide for himself.

What would you have done as the young man?

It was a choice he was faced with and had to make! There was no option of not making it. His actions would result in the judgement one way or the other. The correct choice appears obvious, yet in anger and self righteous behaviour, it is easy for that young man to make the wrong choice isn’t it.

If he makes the wrong choice, is the police Chief wrong in charging him? Would the Chief be wrong in seeing to it he is removed from the population so that others can live safely?

Christians understand this story well! We know the police chief react’s rather like God, our Father.

God extends to us all, the way to change, the tools to change, and the time to change.

We can accept Jesus for who he is, the son of God, and switch our behaviour attitudes and choices, or we can ignore the wisdom God provides.

Either way we are making a choice! Our actions in this life will reveal the truth.

What will our reactions reveal of our choice at the end of our lives?

God is just, and the bible says...

“We know the One who said, “I am the One who judges people. I will pay them back.” (Deuteronomy 32:35) Scripture also says, “The Lord will judge his people.” (Deuteronomy 32:36; Psalm 135:14) It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Hebrews 10:30-31 NIRV

We serve a living God!

We as Christians are not into self-worship, self-aggrandization and self gratification.

We are not into following the evil influences in the world!

We are into submitting to God’s wisdom and love. We are into loving and helping others.

We know it is a terrible thing to die and then fall into the hands of the living God.

We have experienced evil on Earth and it is not nice! Hell will be horribly worse!

We know death is a microscope that brings into view all the things done in our lives for all to investigate. We know that God judges and that if we are found to have rejected Jesus and his life gift to us, we will be due for the punishment of exclusion form God's presence. We will be removed from causing pain to others who do not deserve that pain!

We know that God is just and has to apply what the law dictates, for the good of all those of us who are law abiding.

We know that we can easily choose to be in that saved, safe group, by simply accepting God, Jesus and Holy Spirit for whom they are.

It’s our choice to do so, or not to do so!

We cannot not choose, the choice is already made by not making a choice!

So I must ask, ... what do you choose today?

There is no record of Jesus outside the bible – NOT!
  
IsaiahScroll.jpg
  
Of all the explanations over the millennia, the one that makes least sense is that there was a real Jesus!~ Vexen Crabtree 2007 Nov 10

Utter nonsense! 


I find it amusing that Vexen then says “No historians of the time mention Jesus” then two sentences later has to say “Tacitus mentions a Jesus”.

Wow! Talk about contradicting oneself!

Let’s look at the facts...

Non-biblical evidence of Christ and Christianity is found in Tacitus (A roman historian), The letter of Pliny the younger to Emporer Trajan, Josephus, and even in the Babylonian Talmud.

Tactitus comments in his annals, book 15, chapter 14... "Consequently, to get rid of the report, Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judæa, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome, where all things hideous and shameful from every part of the world find their centre and become popular. Accordingly, an arrest was first made of all who pleaded guilty; then, upon their information, an immense multitude was convicted, not so much of the crime of firing the city, as of hatred against mankind".

Pliny writes... They were in the habit of meeting on a certain fixed day before it was light, when they sang in alternate verses a hymn to Christ, as to a god, and bound themselves by a solemn oath, not to any wicked deeds, but never to commit any fraud, theft or adultery, never to falsify their word, nor deny a trust when they should be called upon to deliver it up; after which it was their custom to separate, and then reassemble to partake of food--but food of an ordinary and innocent kind.[1]

Josephus has three references ...

1.   And now Caesar, upon hearing the death of Festus, sent Albinus into Judea, as procurator. But the king deprived Joseph of the high priesthood, and bestowed the succession to that dignity on the son of Ananus, who was also himself called Ananus... Festus was now dead, and Albinus was but upon the road; so he assembled the sanhedrin of judges, and brought before them the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, whose name was James, and some others; and when he had formed an accusation against them as breakers of the law, he delivered them to be stoned[2]

 2.   Now some of the Jews thought that the destruction of Herod's army came from God, and that very justly, as a punishment of what he did against John, that was called the Baptist: for Herod slew him, who was a good man... Herod, who feared lest the great influence John had over the people might put it into his power and inclination to raise a rebellion... Accordingly he was sent a prisoner, out of Herod's suspicious temper, to Macherus, the castle I before mentioned, and was there put to death[3]

  3.   Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man; for he was a doer of wonderful works, a teacher of such men as receive the truth with pleasure. He drew over to him both many of the Jews and many of the Gentiles. He was [the] Christ. And when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal men amongst us, had condemned him to the cross, those that loved him at the first did not forsake him; for he appeared to them alive again the third day; as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him. And the tribe of Christians, so named from him, are not extinct at this day[4]

The Talmud has a few references that wikipedia provides but that try to reflect him in a negative light. These are...

A sorcerer – Sanhedrin 43a[64] relates the trial and execution of a sorcerer named Jesus ("Yeshu" in Hebrew) and his five disciples. The sorcerer is stoned and hanged on the Eve of Passover.[65]

Student paying too much attention to an inn-keepers wife – Sanhedrin 107[66] tells of a Jesus ("Yeshu") "offended his teacher by paying too much attention to the inn-keeper's wife. Jesus wished to be forgiven, but [his rabbi] was too slow to forgive him, and Jesus in despair went away and put up a brick [idol] and worshipped it."[67]

Boiled in excrement – In Gittin 56b, 57a[68] a story is mentioned in which Onkelos summons up the spirit of a Yeshu who sought to harm Israel. He describes his punishment in the afterlife as boiling in excrement.[69][70]

"May his name and memory be blotted out" – Some critics claim that the Hebrew name Yeshu is not a short form of the name Yeshua, but rather an acrostic for the Hebrew phrase "may his name and memory be blotted out" created by taking the first letter of the Hebrew words.[71]

These are non-Christian sources, but then we have the biblical sources themselves. Many people wrote about Jesus. These texts have been proved authentic and reference many known people and places of the time.

Jesus is one of the most well proven people in history!

Why do people try and refute this?

Unfortunately it’s because they are ignorant! No logical thinking person can refute the authenticity of these texts. Then we have numerous archeological items that support these texts.

As Christians, let’s rest assured. We need never be concerned with stating our lord and Savior lived! What people do with this information is different, but the fact stands.

Jesus walked around in the middle east in the first century!

Have a great day!

Did Jesus have a wife?
LionLiesDownWithTheLamb.jpg
    
Is ‘Jesus’ Wife’ papyrus fragment a forgery? ~Thestar.com[1]


 
Jesus according to the bible is said to going to be married, to the people of God!


John said “I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem. It was coming down out of heaven from God. It was prepared like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.”
[2]

Then the bible, also in revelation says;

The angel said, Come. I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”

 Then he carried me away in a vision. The Spirit took me to a huge, high mountain. He showed me Jerusalem, the Holy City. It was coming down out of heaven from God. It shone with the glory of God. It gleamed like a very valuable jewel.”

These verses show that Jesus considered the church to be a bride. It also shows that the wedding was to be a future event, and not destined for our timeframe.

So then, what is this fragment of text that has been found and which the press and people promoting it have named “The gospel of Jesus wife”?

We need to realise people want to promote themselves, and if they can give something a name that will cause emotions to flare up, they will!

Let’s say that this scrap of papyrus is authentic (and that is still under investigation), then what we say about it.

Well, firstly, some newspaper indicate it was written in the 4th century A.D., so it was written a long time after Jesus died.

In modern times, it would be like finding a text written now by someone about an event about two hundred years ago, without the help of archeology and solid history books.

It would be like someone today writing down what James Madison had to say about the war of 1812 when Canada and the USA were at war, from letters and odd writings.

It would have about as much value as film script! We would certainly not consider it to be a true comment on the words that statesman would have had. Most of us would probably not even know who he was, as he is not part of our current sphere of thinking.

That’s how long after Jesus that this snippet of text they have found was written. Then Karen King explains it actually says, “Jesus said to them, 'My wife...,”[3]

This sentence is incomplete and can be finished in any way we like but nothing we indicate is any proof of what it said. For example, it could have said, “Jesus said to them, ‘My wife will be the New Jerusalem, that with come as a fulfillment of my promises after the end of these times”

Now, I made that up! Yet, no-one can indicate it didn’t say that!

It also says “As for me, I dwell with her in order to...” and I am sure with a little thinking we can come up with plenty of add on’s to that sentence as well.

We don’t have to!

The person who wrote this was definitely not an eye-witness to Jesus life, and never heard Jesus speak.

We know that, because they would have to have been about 200 to 300 years old if they did that.

Not likely right?


This scrap of papyrus has no value other than as a fleeting sensation creating event!

It can be dated, tested, and shown to be true and still have no effect on what Jesus said and did.

Notice that King herself is very careful how she stirs up these emotions. She is quoted as saying...

"Christian tradition has long held that Jesus was not married, even though no reliable historical evidence exists to support that claim," King said in a statement released Tuesday by Harvard. "This new gospel doesn't prove that Jesus was married, but it tells us that the whole question only came up as part of vociferous debates about sexuality and marriage."[4]

So, not even King believes it really comments on Jesus marital status!

We need to be very careful when reading these accounts, to check when they believe these items were written, and also when they are found, and by whom.

This scrap has no known origin! We don’t know where it was originally found and by whom. You can access her research paper by clicking here.

Her exact wording is “It does not, however, provide evidence that the historical Jesus was married, given the late date of the fragment and the probable date of original composition only in the second half of the second century. Nevertheless, if the second century date of composition is correct, the fragment does provide direct evidence that claims about Jesus’s marital status first arose over a century after the death of Jesus in the context of intra-Christian controversies over sexuality, marriage, and discipleship.”

Sensationalism is what sells news and brings in advertising dollars, isn’t it?

This bit of paper belonging to a private collector has probably gone up in value, just what it’s owner would want!

Let’s remember that our bible has thousands and thousands of references that have been proved authentic to the period when Jesus DID walk and talk on this Earth. We have numerous references to people we know did live in those times! Trhese are accurate (at least very much more accurate)

These eye-witness accounts are written down for us to read. The gospels are just that!

Would you rather want to read something written by one of James Madison’s staff at the time to understand the true events, or would a modern script writer be more authentic?

Jesus lived and loved!

That we do know! He lived on this earth and loved us dearly. His mother was at the cross when he died but the bible never mentions a wife, because it seems Jesus saw the church as his bride. We are all part of a fantastic family event in eternity when God takes his bride.

I’m sure glad it hasn’t happened yet, because I want to be part of that future event, don’t you?

Have a great day!
