The ultimate objective of most atheists is to establish a “hands off” policy. However, there are significantly different approaches within the group. The moderates say “We can do better than a false god!” and “We are better off without a false god!” However, the hard-liners are different. They carry a sentiment that is similar to the one made by Adam and Eve in the opening pages of the bible. Adam and Eve said “We can do better than THEE God” and “We are better off without THEE God”.
Adam and Eve were not a couple of teens raiding an orchard, rather they were sentient beings trying to rewrite universal laws. Flying under the radar of the actual God of the universe was not enough for them, so they decided to do something about it. They decided to un-seat the sovereign authority that was over them, and the result was a separation from God.
The problem with most arguments concerning suffering, is that they fail to acknowledge that we are living in a post-mutinous world, in which God has been almost completely excluded from the picture.
We live in a landfill, in every sense of the word, both figurative and literal, a heap of our own making. The world we live in does not have “pure wisdom”; all of our reasoning is tainted to some degree by ignorance, jealousy and conflict of interest, and is almost always going to generate some sort of pain.
Ironically, the kind of reasoning that atheists want, only exists in God.
Jesus steps out in front of Himself ... even though He is already everywhere. He literally does reconnaissance, but not for the purpose of knowing what He already knows, but for the purpose of letting what is ahead know who He is. Jesus “circles” the area the way a master circles an arena of contest, eyeing it, measuring it and weighing it for things that we mortals cannot see, above and below, physical and ethereal, and then He “announces” His “name” over all of its names, crushing them under His feet the way one would crush grapes, and then He “crosses over” to the other side, in a quantum sense, by transitioning time in which the beginning and the end occur at once.
Jesus does not walk “on” surfaces in the sense of needing them for support. Jesus does not need to walk “on” anything in order to be mobile. Jesus “moves” within a “Glory” that is governed by “authority”. The area under Jesus feet is simply there for the telling of the story … it is of no consequence to Jesus’ transportation or safety. Jesus walks “on” Holiness, which is the essence that holds the universe together, an essence that is so powerful ... that it defines itself.
Jesus is not at the mercy of the sea, the sea is at the mercy of Jesus.
One of the greatest ironies is that atheists who hold religious leaders accountable for hypocrisy, fraud and abuse, are at the forefront of following in the footsteps of Jesus.
Atheists are a part of a powerful trend to expose oppressive dictators, a trend that is gaining so much momentum that even the followers of satan are denouncing satan as an overbearing figurehead. Atheists would like to do the same with “God”, but instead they are helping God.
Atheists want to get rid of harmful leaders, and so does God. How ironic is it that modern day crusaders doing the work of Jesus Christ call themselves atheists?
The universe is in the process of lifting the rug and cleaning out thousands of years of dirt. It doesn’t really care who does the lifting or the cleaning, only that justice will have its day in court, and that victims will be restored.
One of the world’s saddest ironies is that the far left and the far right both have the same harmful definition of gender. Each will only be satisfied when girls are in tutus and boys are in hard hats.
The far left tries to “free” children by asking them if they are living in the “wrong body”, or if they want to be a “boy or a girl”, but instead of liberation, they are simply offering one gender “cage” over another.
Similarly, the far right thinks they are “doing the work of God” by dividing males from females, but they are simply “doing the work of the devil” when they divide humans from their God given callings.
The irony is that neither side understands that males and females were not designed by God to have limitations or weaknesses. To look for weakness in gender is to give rise to the devil. Gender has nothing to do with clothes, careers or appearance. Instead, males and females are two sides of the same diamond, a gemstone that can only be measured in how much of God’s light it reflects.
At their best, seers can tell you the future, the consequences, and a salient plan forward, but at their worst, they infuse personal conflicts of interest into the mix, and corrupt the whole message.
False seers are notoriously afraid of judgement. They can see the peaks and valleys of graphs that haven’t even been drawn yet, but if they are stressed, or have an axe to grind, or worse, get caught up in the sound of their own voice, then they deftly slip from seer to bender of the truth.
Every revolution eventually needs a revolution to save it from itself, and so too do seers need help. Fortunately, Jesus is not a seer … Jesus is God, and excluding Jesus is a very non-seer thing to do. We simply cannot move forward properly without reliable advice from the only One, God, who has already been in our future.
For a long time there has been a division between science and religion, but it was put there by humans, not by God.
Religion is afraid of the accountability that comes with scientific data and the law, and science is afraid of the oversight of a God who they would rather not exist. It is the perfect setup for the failure of both.
Religion was hijacked by a lust for power, and science was hijacked by its victims. Our job is to address those problems and correct those mistakes.
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will POUR out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will POUR out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
Mutiny is a battleground for "sound". It is all about whose voice is in control.
One of the definitions of mutiny is to "push away" . . . which is what we do when we try to "silence God".
Mutiny has played such an integral part in the history of creation, and counter-measures to mutiny have cost heaven a great deal, specifically the blood of Jesus. Mutiny is therefore what our words and behaviours are measured against.
He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The sun and the moon are in perfect synchronicity. At the height of the harvest season, they double duty the lighting of the earth, as if passing a baton of light between them. When one sets, the other is already poised to rise. In the summer they lengthen the days, and in the winter, they shorten up and whisper while we sleep.
When Adam and Eve fell from grace, they also corrupted the meanings of many important words. One of those words was “hide”.
The word “hide” comes from the root “to love”. The act of “hiding” was never meant to describe what we run from, but rather what we run to. Hiding was never meant to help us run away from an enemy. No one in heaven runs from enemies. The word “hide” was meant to define the act of wrapping oneself in love.
The thing we hide in, by heaven’s definition, becomes our God. Adam and Eve should have hid themselves in God, but instead they “hid” themselves in the “trees”, which was itself an act of "tree-son". The trees became their emblem of salvation, and so the emblem of Jesus upon a tree, would be the only acceptable process for restoration.
Children often hide under the bed and behind curtains, and adults hide in their jobs and behind various masks. None of those things can save us. The only true place to “hide” is in God.
