life: It has been said that this life
is just the carry on point for continued awakening in an
endless journey, the struggle for existence and for hope in this 'womb'
of physical existence; but, the next step of
those of love -why?).is
the 'real' life; real living that is, in comparison to the life most people
are having today. The next step of life is found inside
you and it brings a whole new world. You see, just as there are many
layers in the invisible reality, so it also is in the physical reality,
right here, right now, because all the physical comes from the invisible.
There will be
more tears. There will be no more heartaches. There will be no more
of the severe trials, tests and sufferings
that so predominate
existence here. And, the Creator allows nothing
to be taken away that's good.
Without understanding the
importance of this next life, a life of
from ordinary consciousness into
consciousness, we risk cutting ourselves short of the
reward we could have achieved.
Don't be in for disappointments.
Trust the Creator. Belief is the key:.James
5:14 "Whereas you know not what shall be tomorrow. For what is your
life? It is even a vapour, that appears for a little time and then vanishes
away." 1Corinthians 15:19
"If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable."
Those looking forward to
living possess constant joy,
no matter what this life throws at them because they have
assurance for what is next.
Joseph had a dream which he unwisely shared with his brothers
of several women. His brothers were jealous
because of parental favoritism
and his dreams:.Genesis
37:3,4,8. The solution, his brothers figured, was to get rid of Joseph:.Genesis
37:18-24. And so is recorded the first conspiracy.
Feelings of jealousy and
come from thoughts that have programmed us to react to situations with
feelings of jealously and envy. Envy is grieving at the good of another.
Jealousy and envy are just feelings. And so we should be always on
the qui vive for negative
thoughts, which are thoughts which hurt
ourselves eventually and others.
be alert as to what is going on with yourself. The feelings of jealousy.("I'm
upset she has that.").and
wish I had what she has").are
negative feelings from the ego level that can either make you feel inadequate
or queue you to
have better thoughts, those of higher consciousness:.Proverbs
27:4 "Wrath is cruel and anger is outrageous, but who is able to stand
God too has feelings.
Where do you think our our ability to have feelings came from? The Creator
was very jealous over the
people He loved so much:.Exodus
19:5; 34:14; Deuteronomy
And God is the same today.
God so much wants people to experience all the good they can, but like
the lesson of Moses, whose attitude
slayed him, so can ours.
However God no longer is
as He was in Old Testament times because now His jealousy toward mankind
has been compensated
for by the death of His Son Emmanuel:.1Corinthians
7:23,24 "You are bought with a price. Be not you the servants of men.
Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God.".All
negatives for all time were laid upon Him who came to reconcile all things:.Colossians
1:20 "And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him
to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things
in earth or things in heaven." 2Corinthians
5:19 "To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself,
not imputing their trespasses unto them and has committed unto us the word
this, all anger, all sin and all wrath are gone. Why?.John
3:17 "For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world through him might be saved.".Colossians
whole lesson of the Old Testament was, be of God and things go well
or leave off God and welcome again to the 'normal' life, being that of
If we love God there
is separation from all that would threaten God from activity of love
4:8-16. To give attention in spiritual things to other than the true
God is fragmenting
one's attention, thus allowing some 'pin
pricks' to get to you. The ancients were like this. At first they mixed
their worship of the true God and with idols and then slipped away from
11:6-11; 15:12-14; 22:42,43;
32:16-18 "They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations
provoked they him to anger. They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to
gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers
feared not. Of the Rock that begat you, you are unmindful and have forgotten
God that formed you."
