WHEN YOU ARE THROUGH CHANGING, YOU ARE THROUGH!

I will pour out my Spirit on All flesh- Joel 2:28

Had a revelation I believe was from the Lord yesterday about all this change in beliefs again…

I was just writing in my journal about how I am so sick and tired of all this changing. here I go again I thought… I am so tired of changing what I believe. finding out I am wrong once again… it’s so disheartening. i wish i could just settle down somewhere and be happy with that. but no, I have to continually change and go back and forth and have to revisit and study all over again whatever it is that has come back to me.  Lately as I have journaled a few days ago; I had the strangest experience when I was having my quiet time. I was sitting there praying and reading scripture like usual and suddenly something clicked, broke, came apart, dismantled…I’m not sure what happened but It was like I dosed off and instantly opened my eyes back up into a very different world and all I had been so sure of was gone! i didn’t know what I believed again and was seeing how I could prove any of them wrong with the other one.

So sitting here typing out my journal and writing the sentence “I am so tired of all this change and changing all the time” as I was writing this very sentence my iPhone started to ding in text messages. I continued to write about it then checked my messages. I was shocked! it was someone favoriting some of my tweets. on my twitter account. it was this:

“To change and to change for the better are two different things.” (German proverb)

Then:

“Growth means change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the unknown.” (George Shinn)

Then:

“The world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress.” (Charles Franklin Kettering)

Then:

“When you’re through changing, you’re through” – bruce barton

Then as I was looking back at these this morning I saw this mixed with these:

“People who never live their life today; they continuously live in past regrets or worry about future problems while neither is real” -(me) #reality

Wow! What a revelation! It has to be The Lord letting me know he was preparing me for this a few days ago when I tweeted these. Also and even more marvelous is that it totally explains what is going on and gives me a choice.

This change is a normal part of “growth”

This change is necessary – for me to go on with my journey with the Lord.

If you are growing you are changing or you’re not growing.

All growth involves risk.

Risk because you are stepping once again from the ‘known’ to the ‘unknown’ (just like what is happening)

People generally hate change, but remember it is the only thing that has brought progress

Not all these changes I have made were good – some where, I guess I’m working through that…

And then:

WHEN YOU ARE THROUGH CHANGING, YOU ARE THROUGH!

That’s not what I want. I want to go on, that will involve risk, I have to take it and go on. in order to become and grow into whatever it is that Lord wants me to be do or become as I have always prayed through all my spiritual journey.

Then finally:

“People who never live their life today; they continuously live in past regrets or worry about future problems while neither is real” #reality

That fits this somehow.. having put it together yet, my head is hurting…

A few thought’s I have had and noted on this:

I think my problem is that there are way too many religious sages, denominations, sects, cults, churches, ministry leaders, preachers and bible teachers that are all saying they have all the answers – they have it all figured out – “listen to me!” “I know!” “I have the light” “The Lord Himself REVEALED this to me” They start with “Most don’t know or understand this but…” or “Here’s what the bible REALLY means” All claiming The Lord’s anointing and authority; Screaming in my ears from every direction. I’ll admit, I have been one of them at times… Deep in my heart, hidden even from me, I wanted to be one of these “Special Messengers” only to fall on my face time after time… Oh I didn’t want fame or glory, I really didn’t. I just wanted to know that I knew and share it with others. I suppose this is not a bad desire; the bible says it isn’t. Although the bible warns those who would claim such authority had better have it right and would face stricter judgment than others.

1 “Dear brothers and sisters, not many of you should become teachers in the church, for we who teach will be judged more strictly.”

(James 3:1 NLTse)

But there were also false prophets in Israel, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly teach destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them. In this way, they will bring sudden destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. 3 In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed”

(2 Peter 2:1-3 NLTse)

God help us all.

I was reading this morning in 2 Corinthians chapter 3 about the old and new testaments which ironically and conveniently fits in with all this…

17 You see, we are not like the many hucksters who preach for personal profit. We preach the word of God with sincerity and with Christ’s authority, knowing that God is watching us.

1 Are we beginning to praise ourselves again? Are we like others, who need to bring you letters of recommendation, or who ask you to write such letters on their behalf? Surely not! 2 The only letter of recommendation we need is you yourselves. Your lives are a letter written in our hearts; everyone can read it and recognize our good work among you. 3 Clearly, you are a letter from Christ showing the result of our ministry among you. This “letter” is written not with pen and ink, but with the Spirit of the living God. It is carved not on tablets of stone, but on human hearts.

4 We are confident of all this because of our great trust in God through Christ. 5 It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God. 6 He has enabled us to be ministers of his new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life.

7 The old way, with laws etched in stone, led to death, though it began with such glory that the people of Israel could not bear to look at Moses’ face. For his face shone with the glory of God, even though the brightness was already fading away. 8 Shouldn’t we expect far greater glory under the new way, now that the Holy Spirit is giving life? 9 If the old way, which brings condemnation, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new way, which makes us right with God! 10 In fact, that first glory was not glorious at all compared with the overwhelming glory of the new way. 11 So if the old way, which has been replaced, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new, which remains forever!

12 Since this new way gives us such confidence, we can be very bold. 13 We are not like Moses, who put a veil over his face so the people of Israel would not see the glory, even though it was destined to fade away. 14 But the people’s minds were hardened, and to this day whenever the old covenant is being read, the same veil covers their minds so they cannot understand the truth. And this veil can be removed only by believing in Christ. 15 Yes, even today when they read Moses’ writings, their hearts are covered with that veil, and they do not understand.

16 But whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image

(2 Corinthians 3:2-18 NLTse)

Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser III also has something to do with it because it keeps popping up in my reading, viewing, and study, which was somehow referenced in my Logos 5 Library Software reading and referencing the above verses. I have 4164 study Books, containing over 50 versions of the bible that I can read – more in original languages I cannot read without using other resources to decipher the words. I have illustrated dictionaries, lexicons, several map sets, books on the history of the church fathers, Egyptian history and it’s ancient writings, American history with with whole sets on everything from the civil war to the making of the constitution, World history, religions, and otherwise etc. which I can search the whole library for any word, phrase, topic, subject or whatever in literally seconds; pulling up literally thousands of references, book, chapter and page. It will even narrow it down to the verb tense, voice, mood, first second or third person, wild card etc. in Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic or English. This is not to mention the poetry, regular novels, true and fictional – instead of days or hours of research it does it in literally seconds and pulls it all together in an organized fashion. So here I sit cross-eyed and overwhelmed with all this information trying to sort through it for whatever I am supposed to see…

So, I keep reading, researching, studying, praying through it all; hoping to not miss the next exit ramp or get in the wrong lane of this super-highway of Theological, biblical, historical, philosophical information!

Well, I guess there’s nothing left to do but buckle my spiritual-theological seatbelt and hit the power button and blast-off on yet another journey into realms I have never gone before! (Again) I’ll tell you all about it when I get there…

The main and most important thing I DO KNOW is very simple, yet profoundly mysterious – Jesus Christ Saves! Thank God!

Peace,

A Prayer of Moses:

1 Lord, through all the generations

you have been our home!

2 Before the mountains were born,

before you gave birth to the earth and the world,

from beginning to end, you are God.

3 You turn people back to dust, saying,

“Return to dust, you mortals!”

4 For you, a thousand years are as a passing day,

as brief as a few night hours.

5 You sweep people away like dreams that disappear.

They are like grass that springs up in the morning.

6 In the morning it blooms and flourishes,

but by evening it is dry and withered.

7 We wither beneath your anger;

we are overwhelmed by your fury.

8 You spread out our sins before you—

our secret sins—and you see them all.

9 We live our lives beneath your wrath,

ending our years with a groan.

10 Seventy years are given to us!

Some even live to eighty.

But even the best years are filled with pain and trouble;

soon they disappear, and we fly away.

11 Who can comprehend the power of your anger?

Your wrath is as awesome as the fear you deserve.

12 Teach us to realize the brevity of life,

so that we may grow in wisdom.

13 O L ord, come back to us!

How long will you delay?

Take pity on your servants!

14 Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love,

so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives.

15 Give us gladness in proportion to our former misery!

Replace the evil years with good.

16 Let us, your servants, see you work again;

let our children see your glory.

17 And may the Lord our God show us his approval

and make our efforts successful.

Yes, make our efforts successful

(Psalms 90:1-17 NLTse)

Meet Baxter, Auto, and Watson

Since writing my last blog and while having the topic on my mind I suppose I began to notice more stories, blogs, and videos on the subject. Like when you’re thinking of buying a 2014 Volvo S80 and you are amazed and overcome with the car thinking you have just found the hidden Gem no one has ever seen! Then the days following there are Volvo S80’s all over the place! I guess that is what happened with me and this tech stuff; especially in the robot or “bot” group. I ran across this YouTube video and I was astounded by the logic and inevitable out come of it. So I just had to share it with you all.

DWI

Robots are taking over the world! Well, Maybe not…

robot

I remember when I was growing up a lot of people thinking that would happen someday, that robots would take over the world!

I think it has happened! Although in a much more subtle form. Everyone knows that technology has taken over our lives and the way the world works. I’ve even heard it said that technology has taken the world by storm just in the last decade. Whether we want to admit it or not technology has in many ways, taken over our lives. Almost everything we do today has some computerized system behind it for it to work.

The next technological milestone has been the implementation of the Internet worldwide. The worldwide web they call it, which interconnects almost everything. More and more the Internet is working together with all of the computerized systems that are operating everything and controlling most of what we do in our lives; from our basic utilities and much-needed services in our homes to the vehicles we drive, our finances, our medical services, our entertainment, many of our jobs and jobs done by many types of robotics; in addition to our social interactions, even our everyday communication with friends and family.

All this is done through an artificially intelligent super brain we call a central processing unit or CPU in a computer / tablet / smart phone / smart TVs  and Blue Ray players / our vehicle’s brain under the hood or dash / medical equipment / cash registers and card readers, etc. These are what control all the computer systems that control all the other things that control our lives. These super brains or CPUs have become more and more powerful year-by-year or you might say smarter and smarter! Most of us are holding in our hands what we call a smart phone which in turn is controlled by a CPU which gets more and more powerful and smarter with each new update. The average person cannot begin to comprehend the power and intelligence of these CPU units which control our world. As a matter of fact they do not want the average person knowing the potential of these tiny super brains that we carry in our pockets, control our vehicles, and provide our services. While these technological miracles cannot begin to match the human brain and mind; as we use them more and more of them we use less of ours. That is a scary thought, and that might be the plan or “Program”. What plan? The plan to control society without people even knowing they’re being controlled.

Now, every day more and more of these computer systems which control all of “our things” are being put online! This through the World Wide Web so that they can offer us even more services for our benefit of course! (Of course the world knows too!) What many do not realize is that all of these computer systems being interconnected with the World Wide Web are tracking everything we do from where we go using our GPS on our smart phone (Even embedded – hidden in the pictures we take with it) to our shopping habits through surfing the web and computer systems in the on-line superstores to all of our purchases to our banking habits. It’s all connected through the World Wide Web and these super-smart super computers. It’s all “Super” isn’t it? i.e. marketing jargon…

This thing is not done in a corner, it is all over the tech news but most people pay little attention to those things while they surf the web, check-in at Facebook, play on-line games, surfing Amazon, make bids on eBay, tweet about breakfast, and talk to or text friends and family about everything they’re doing, sending pictures and “links”. Yes, like links in the chain connecting your whole life and all that you do. While these computer systems track you and record everything you do, – yes they record everything you do, they are storing it all in huge data collection centers (I could say much more about that) and sifting through it learning habits and patterns of behavior to predict possible actions and decisions that you might make in the future.

It is a fact that they are doing this and has been talked about on many news paper stories, programs and special reports and blog articles that I have read in the tech news that most people overlook or care little about; and they are glad you don’t. Because these are the tools that they use to manipulate you and control what you do without you even knowing it. Like certain adds or offers popping up in certain places at certain times of day custom made just for YOU by their knowledge of your life status, family information, habits and patterns… Who are “they”? They are the ones that control the economies of the world, big business corporations and big banks, from governments to the entertainment industry, and now at least partially, you and me. Money is the oil that keeps this world machine running, whoever controls the money controls the whole system. To what degree, I am not sure; but you can be sure of this; they are gaining more control all the time through these computer systems, the World Wide Web, banking systems, marketing strategies, social and entertainment industries along with our jobs, our income and what we do with it.

So, robots controlling the world? Well not walking around slapping us on top the head and giving us orders. Although there is an artificial intelligence system in place that is controlling more and more of the world and our life – you and me. For the most part it’s called “services”, and I do enjoy many of them and don’t plan on giving them up anytime soon. I am actually excited to see all that it can do and enjoy using all of it that I can. Nevertheless it is not running on it’s own, behind the scenes there is a controlling group (Some call them the Illuminati) That does concern me; but I have no control over them so I don’t worry too much about it. That would be a pointless waste of time when I could be on Facebook! LOL! …

P.S.

I don’t worry because I trust the mastermind controller of the universe! The almighty sovereign God overall things! He is the author of my destiny, I read about it in His Book. I know the end of the story, it’s going to be okay!
