on from Matthew 21:32
"For John came unto you in the way of righteousness and you believed him
not, but the publicans and the harlots.(prostitutes).believed
him. And you, when you had seen it, repented not afterward, that
you might believe him.".Note
here that wanting to change is necessary in order to believe.
One needs to want change,
to have an intent.(how
powerful are intentions?).to
leave behind what has done him no good, those things no longer useful to
him in higher consciousnesss:
4:18 "Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life
of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness
of their heart."
This is what is called repentance.(repentance'
then one is ready to take the next step, that
would one be interested in belief anyway?).
Repentance is a one
time step up the staircase to higher consciousness, for why would one
want to go back down
to the first step again?
And there is another step
on the pathway of higher consciousness, that of becoming 'hot for the Creator',
2:10 "... they received not the love of the truth, that they
might be saved."
Doesn't say one has to ask
forgiveness from God, because it's God that put the
in us to 'miss the mark'.(*).of
His high consciousness and for a very good reason.(*).
When a person really
and truly wants
ways lived that have caused hurts either
to them or others, they are in
forgiveness. It's automatic:.Mark
11:26. It's a law of the universe set up by God:.Ephesians
1:7; Acts 5:31.
It's an automatic thing once
awakens a mind to Him:.Acts
26:18 "To open their eyes and to turn them from darkness to light and
from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of
sins and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in
me." Colossians 1:14 "In whom
through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins." Ephesians
1:18 "The eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that you may
know what is the hope of his calling and what the riches of the glory of
his inheritance in the saints."
Another law of the universe
is the law of reaping
what one has sown.
1:4,6,7 "According as he has chosen us in him.(or,
to be in Him).before.(*).the
foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame
before him in love...he has made us accepted in the beloved...In
whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins..."
1:11 "In whom also we
have obtained an inheritance..." Psalms
130:4 "But there is forgiveness with you, that you may be feared."
If one already has forgiveness
of sins, he or she is in the field
of forgiveness, why then focus
on sins one may still have unless it's to spiral
back and get clean of those bothersome memories? Is it really necessary
to ask God to forgive you when it's God who's responsible
for your nature and spiritual
the first place?
Could this be a discounting
of what one already has as a gift, by being of the mind to ask God for
forgiveness for what has already been forgiven? Could this be akin
3:28,29 "Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the
sons of men and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme, But
he that shall blaspheme against the Holy
Ghost has never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.".If
one carries on in his life on the negative side, refusing
to listen, being stubborn in his direction of evil, what
good is he at this time toward the purpose he or she was put
on Earth for?
Though God is responsible
for what we humans are, it's up to us to decide which way we want to go
as we learn throughout life.
God's completely responsible
for what we are, but we are responsible for what we do.(*).
does say we need the love of the truth.(what
order to be saved, but what
does the word 'saved' mean and why would we want to be saved anyhow?
Asking for forgiveness one
already has, it is like asking the person who may have given you a gift,
to again give you the same gift; it's like saying one is unappreciative
of what he received. This kind of person is never thankful. Those on the
road of evil are unthankful people:.Isaiah
56:11. But perhaps one didn't know that he or she already has forgiveness.
And until they do awaken, spiritual things will continue to be like
Find out with a simple exercise
how high your consciousness is and/or can become. So, what words are there
that one can use to examine himself.(2Corinthians
13:5)? That is, what words would
one's thoughts generally be about if he were of higher consciousness? Ask
this of yourself and see what you come up with. Then compare with the
list. Some words of David's.(who
this regard were:.Psalms
Higher consciousness concepts
do we need tools?).for
one to be a proper example, a light, to others; in humility:.John
13:15; in overall character:.1Timothy
4:12; in patience:.James
A changed mind is meant
here to mean an attitude of changing from what a person has come to see
is not the best for his life, a change from the 'close-minded
to spirituality outlook' many people have, which just locks
them into the prison
of their ego.
The way forward to belief
is the state of acceptance
and open mindedness that takes one away.(Zechariah
1:3 "...Thus says the LORD...Turn you unto me...and I will turn unto
evil heart of unbelief, exhibited by a closed
3:12 "Take heed,
brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief..." Jeremiah
It is through being justified
by the gift of grace
that we are made heirs
according to our hope of eternal
life. And, eternal life is now. That means you don't
have to die physically to get it:.Titus
3:7 "That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according
to the hope of eternal life."
So, here we again see that
an attitude of unbelief is something best to avoid as it prevents one from
seeing changes needed in his life for the better and prevents one from
higher consciousness principles needed to change one's life.
Instead, have an intent
to believe that which holds promise. Then you will see if it's at all true.
Strange it works that way but it does.
It's through belief that
the Creator is welcomed into one's life and this occurs by being willing
to change the negatives in one's personal life; willing to change those
things for the better.
Change is made effective by one's intent to believe in the first place.
does this get you? To reach the invisible world
inside you, one must do the two things talked of here in the scripture,
that of repent and that of believing:.Mark
1:15 "...time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent
you and believe the gospel." John
3:36 "He that believes on the Son has everlasting life and he
that believes not the Son shall not see life.(again,
showing the importance
of believing), but the wrath of
on Earth does this mean?) abides on
him." John 3:18 "He that believes on
him is not condemned.(original
word for 'condemned' means 'separated', a being apart from; that is, unbelieving
keeps one out of the higher consciousness realm of the invisible)...."
5:40 "And you will not come to me that you might have life."
6:29 "Emmanuel answered and said unto them, This is the work of God,
that you believe on him whom he has sent." John
11:25,26 "Emmanuel said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life.
He that believes in me, though he were dead.(he
might as well be dead if he's on the pathway
of it), yet shall he live.(1Corinthians
15:22). And whosoever lives and
believes in me shall never die. Believe thou this?".Here
again, showing the importance of believing.."Since
the Creator is life, all that promotes destruction is of non life and therefore
not of the Creator."....Grigori
The word of the Creator abides
20:31 "But these are written, that you might believe that Emmanuel
is the Christ, the Son of God and that believing you might have
life through his name." Galatians
3:22 "...the promise by faith of Emmanuel the Christ might be given
to them that believe." 2Timothy
1:1 "...the promise of life which is in Christ Emmanuel." 2Timothy
1:10 "...our Saviour Emmanuel the Christ has abolished death
and has brought life and immortality to light..." 1John
2:25 "And this is the promise that he has promised us, even eternal
life." 1John 5:13 "...believe
on the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal
if you are Christ's.(1Corinthians
would you choose to die physically when all He talks about is the opposite?.Galatians
1:2 "In hope of eternal
life, which God that cannot lie, promised before the world began."
But, hey! One can't believe
the Creator gives them the gift of belief.
of Christ is a pattern for believers to see what He has done to ensure
life everlasting for all:.1Timothy
1:16 "...Emmanuel the Christ might show forth all longsuffering, for
a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life
